Gateway Family,

We have an exciting opportunity to partner with several of Gateway's college students to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth.  This spring break and summer, at least seven of our college students are going on mission trips with various missions organizations to Florida, Puerto Rico, and a location in Asia.

It is a wonderful thing to see this young generation of believers sacrificially giving of themselves for the sake of the Gospel!

In order to support the furthering of the Gospel, the elders have decided to receive a special offering to help these students cover the cost of the trips.  The total cost for these trips is approximately $7,500.  Please consider partnering with Gateway as we send these students out into the mission field.  Your prayers and financial support are needed.  You may give online by going to the online giving page, clicking on the gray button "add another account," and then selecting "college mission trips."  All of the funds received there will go toward helping Gateway college students serve on these mission teams.  You also may mail or bring a check to the church office with "college mission trip" noted in the memo line of the check.

In addition, if you are a Gateway member going on a mission trip this spring or summer, please contact the church office to let us know!

Finally, If you would like to better get to know these college students, most of them regularly attend the college-aged life group hosted at Seth and Megan Rhodebeck's house on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m.   We encourage you to come and get to know them!

The generosity of this body is truly amazing.  Thank you for so faithfully supporting the ministry of the Gospel.
