MrsDrPoe: Mr. Gates

It's time for another edition of Poes' Pals!  Today I'd like you all to meet a very special person, Mr. Gates:

We've known Mr. Gates for about a year, and in that time he has been such an encouragement to us!  He truly lives for the Lord- a truth that is evident even during his most physically difficult times.  

Despite spending his entire life with an extremely rare heart defect, this Temple grad has had his artwork shown in Rome, Berlin, and New York (to name a few).  He has spent the past six months hospitalized in Florida waiting on a heart that will not be rejected by his body.  During this long, painful period, however, he has spent a good deal of his time speaking to others in the hospital about the gospel.

Mr. Poe and I would encourage you to keep Mr. Gates and his family in your prayers.  If you'd like to learn more about Mr. Gates, his condition, and what you can do to help, you may do so here.
