Now that Pastor Robert is at home recovering from several emergency surgeries and pneumonia, we are gratefully acknowledging that along with prayer, blood transfusions saved his life. According to his son Pastor Josh, who spoke at Gateway Church on the weekend Pastor Robert was released from the hospital, “If the hospital didn’t have blood ready to give him, there’s no question he would have died.”

Because of this, Gateway is partnering with Carter BloodCare, one of Texas’s largest blood centers, to host a blood drive at each Gateway Campus during weekend services this summer. Usually blood donations dip in the summer, but the need is at its highest point of the year. This is critical because there are about 600 to 800 patients daily who require blood transfusions. Carter BloodCare likes to see 1,000 donors each day to maintain a safe and sufficient blood supply. This is an opportunity to make a big impact for patients who will need blood this summer.

“I hope Carter BloodCare is never short on blood in the summer months ever again because of Gateway Church,” says Pastor Josh. “Will you donate blood?” Let’s make a difference with our blood donations and save lives together! 

If you aren't able to give blood at your campus, you can also schedule an appointment at one of Carter BloodCare's donor locations using sponsor number SPON051847 to still be part of Gateway's Blood Drive and save a life.
