Thou shalt love they neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these..." Mark 12:31

Having former residents return to Gateway for a visit to give back may not happen for many years after their time with us. Ronald returned after just one year to do just that this summer. Shortly after his visit, we received this letter in the mail.

Dear GWW Staff,
Thank you for welcoming me back so well. The past few days have been great, and I really enjoyed myself at Gateway. It was good to know that you guys still care for me and are wiling to continue working with me as I adjust into adulthood. It was a blessing to play basketball, have dinner, and go to church on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively. I know that Gateway and LARC are going to be a big support for me when I arrive for good and just having people who care about me. So thank you for welcoming me back with open arms, it means so much to me.

Take Care & God Bless

Please continue to pray for all of the kids and families that have been, and continue to be, touched by the ministry of Gateway Woods.

Jon is currently the Communications Coordinator at Gateway Woods. He has also worked as a Houseparent.
