Dear friends across the nation,
The Gatekeepers ministry is in need, and we are calling out to friends everywhere to pray for us, and to the blessed to consider helping us.
I certainly hope this letter finds you all doing well. I hope you had a very blessed Memorial Day weekend, and trust that as another weekend has come into view, that you are running the race in faith, and enjoying some relaxation too.
Faith does miracles. And sometimes, faith is all we have. In the past several months in my life, I’ve learned that faith is all you need… when you have nothing, when you have everything, when things are going well, and when you’re struggling… it is faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ that give us purpose for living, and hope for today.
If you have been following my posts as of late, then you are aware that within two months’ time, our new Gospel Vocal Group, The Gatekeepers, has gone from not existing, to having an album out, a website up, and tour dates on the books. We have seen God bless us by helping us secure concert dates, as well as calling His servants to help us with various things we have needed. And today, May 31st, The Gatekeepers are a group that is ready to hit the road to take the Gospel message wherever the Lord will lead us!
We hit the road in less than a week from now, touring weekends through places like Illinois, Iowa, Tennessee, Alabama and Florida over the next couple months. Then, when August hits, we’ll start doing longer tours.
We are ready to go. We have CDs. We have singers. We have a sound system. We have a ministry mindset. The only thing we are missing, however, is something that we absolutely must have in order to get to these wonderful churches that have agreed to host us - transportation.
We know that God has taught us many things and has given us so much to start this ministry. We could not have done it without Him, and His servants who He has sent to link arms with us. Every date that comes in is a beautiful gift from Him that we take seriously.
What we’re asking The Lord for now, is something we know He can provide: a vehicle for us to go do our concerts in, and some basic travel funds to use for our expenses on the road.
We need a way to get to our concerts. None of us own a vehicle that is large enough to accommodate the group, and we don’t know of anyone who could lend us one. But none-the-less, we need it. Maybe there is someone out there who has a van or SUV they could lend us on a few weekends… or someone who could financially help us rent something… maybe someone who could temporarily loan us cash to get a rental… or someone who might be able to make an even greater contribution… we are looking for a vehicle that will get us to and from these dates, so that we can go and share the Gospel through song and testimony.
Our organization currently has no funding, nor financial resources. In time, I’m sure we will. Until that moment comes, though, we need your help! If there is anyone out there who is able to, and willing to, help us with this issue, please get in touch with me.
I have every bit of faith that God will provide a way for us to get to these concert dates. Whether it be a borrowed van, a rental, or an even larger miracle such as a donated vehicle. What I ask you to do today, is to pray for us. Pray that we will find the resources we need. That God will pour out His blessings on this ministry.
