When Kids Pray
"This winter I fell while rehearsing worship for our Gateway Kids’ services and later learned four ligaments in my left ankle had severe third-degree sprains, and my talus bone was fractured."
The Seventh Lap
"My son Ryder has been battling daily seizures since he was eight months old. In January 2018, I went to a women’s retreat and the Holy Spirit told me that Ryder was on his seventh lap—the walls were going to come down just like Jericho!"
Anywhere but Africa
Rich Franzen was just a lanky 17-year-old walking through the halls of the church office with no real direction when a children’s pastor stopped him.
A Beautiful Future
“I had a rough childhood—my innocence was stolen at a very young age. I remember knowing of God as a child, but I didn’t understand the relationship part."
Going into All the World
“I felt called to missions when I was 12. It was just after my first Gateway ministry trip to Guatemala with my family."
Heart of Stewardship
“Last winter, I attended one of the messages from the Beyond Blessed series on stewardship and tithing. I’ve always struggled with tithing (i.e., I’ve never done it!). My giving was sporadic and much less than 10 percent."
Raising Up Truthseekers
John and Linda Schneider are empty nesters, but every other Sunday their home is buzzing with young men and women, the same age as their children.
Called to Protect
Mechele West was a scary five-year-old. At least, that’s what her 24-year-old cousin-in-law thought. No one understood why he played with all the cousins but her or why he jumped at the sound of her voice and left a room when she entered it.
Rodolfo Salcedo thought he had the remedy to help make his young daughter, Natalia, feel happy again.

A Life-Changing Word
Hala Saad felt a burden for the people of her homeland in the Middle East but didn’t know what she could do living so far away in the United States.
Amy Calvey’s been dancing. She puts socks on and slides across her shiny kitchen floor in a dance of pure childlike joy. It’s a moment that stands apart, because grief has been weighing her down the past few years.
“I was orphaned as a baby in China. I’m not sure why my birth parents gave me away. Maybe they were scared; maybe they had more than two children in the family; or maybe they saw that I had birth defects on my ears."
Faith. Family. Fishing.
“I grew up fishing. It’s something that was passed down to me from both sides of my family, so it’s in my blood. But it became a number-one priority in my life above everything else."
