The Gate Called Beautiful is the Parish Nurse Ministry of Family Faith Center.  The "Gate" is comprised of nurses who are members of the Family Faith congregation.  These brothers and sisters in Christ provide services to the members of the congregation.  The services are health related and faith-focused.

MY LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going.  I do not see the road ahead of me.  I cannot know for certain where it will end.  Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following Your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.  But I believe that the desire to please You does in fact please You.  And I hope I have that desire in all that i am doing.  I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.  And I know that if I do this You will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it.  Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death.  I will not fear, for You are with me, and You will never leave me to face my perils alone.
