I can't believe it is already the first week of March 2018 and today would be my parents' 61st wedding anniversary.  

It has been 2 years since my father passed away in February 2016.  Since that time, I have been attempting to balance the work of Grace Network International (GNI), Shepherd's House Ministries (SHM), Gatley Family Trusts (Trustee), Grace Gate Community Church (GGCC), and my personal life at home with my family.  It has not been easy which has led to my departure from SHM in Sep 2017.

Jesus knew his life would be sacrificed...Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” - John 2:19.  Jesus asked if there was another way...And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, "My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.” - Matthew 26:39.

...but, did he know how much he would have to suffer?
