I have friends and family who are personally involved with this Biblical counseling ministry. Marriage, individual, and family counseling is offered at NO CHARGE. There is only a small charge for a counseling packet as you first begin your sessions. If you need this type of counseling, feel free to schedule an appointment, or request more information, by calling the number listed on their website.
If you would like to be trained to become a Biblical Counselor, Gateway does that, too! (NOTE: Any classes you take through Gateway can also be submitted to Masters International School of Divinity for credit consideration in their Biblical Counseling degree.)
This is a wonderful ministry with volunteers who take their time to counsel and train. If the Lord lays it on your heart, please consider supporting them through your monestary DONATIONS.

I had often wondered why Isaiah 41:13, as well as many other verses in the Bible, mentions the RIGHT hand in the verse. So, I recently did some research and decided to share what I found. There is now a new tab towards the top of this blog, titled: WHY THE RIGHT HAND? Just click on that to go take a look!

Red symbolizes Hardiness and Valor
White symbolizes Purity and Innocence
Blue represents Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice
The Star Spangled Banner
By Francis Scott Key 1814
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
Happy 4th of July!
Happy INDEPENDENCE Day!
Happy BIRTHDAY America!

There are also various ways to make a DONATION to Medical Teams International. They are a 501(c)3 organization and will acknowledge every donation with a receipt for tax purposes.
NON-CASH DONATIONS are also accepted, such as medical supplies and over-the-counter medications. A great project idea for your church, youth group, organization, or for individual families, is to assemble HOPE KITS and mail them to the headquarters in Oregon. Hope Kits are small packages of either pesonal care items, or school supplies (see the requirements on the list) that are sent to children in orphanages, refugee camps, disaster zones, or communities. Each family/child could package up one two kits, then collect them all and mail all at once. Great service project!
6-26-14 UPDATE: Hope Kits are no longer listed on the website. But, other types of donations are still being accepted.
