We want to express our thanks to the Verkaik family! Mike, Dawn and Chad served at Beautiful Gate for a few weeks at the end of October. Dawn and Chad were a blessing for a little over a week and then Mike stayed on for another 10 days. Dawn and Chad served the care staff and children along with Mike most days. Other days Mike painted in the volunteer house and hauled dirt with the maintenance guys.

We are so thankful for the work you did and for your time and sacrifice to come here. We thank you for your service and pray that you were able to experience God’s goodness through the staff and children in this beautiful place.

Thank you too for encouraging the staff in their various roles. Thank you for spending the time with us just to listen and share. These things we do not take for granted; it lifts our spirits and helps us to keep going in our jobs here.

May God bless you richly as you go from this place. We will miss you and pray we will meet again!
