Quick Overview

“Precious Lord, surely you haven’t brought us this far to let everything fail!”

David Gates lay awake at night agonizing about the $1.4 million due in a short time. Had they been wrong to write the check knowing that there was no money yet to cover it? Hadn’t God provided time and time again in establishing their work even though they made no solicitations for funds?

His wife, Becky, also wrestled over the huge debt, which was for the purchase of a television network. Then there would be the operating expenses and future satellite costs. And what about the schools in four countries and the medical aviation program in three countries? They all needed funds. “Dear Jesus, please tell us, what shall we do?”

Instantly God responded to her plea, giving her the promise in Deuteronomy 33:27,

"The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms."

This biblical promise was a gentle reminder that they were not denominational employees or self-supporting missionaries. Like the first missionaries, they were God-supported and had to lean on His everlasting arms and be willing to be carried wherever He knew they were needed.

Eileen E. Lantry, author of Mission Pilot, chronicles more miracle stories of David and Becky Gates, missionaries to the Amerindians of Guyana and Venezuela. As you see what God has done for the ministry of David and Becky Gates, think again about what God can do through your service to Him. This book will inspire you to trust your life and future to God’s leading.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Eileen E. Lantry


Of the seventeen books written by Eileen E. Lantry, two show how God used the faith and dedication of two men, who lived a century apart, to change the lives of the neglected Amerindians of Guyana, South America. Eileen felt honored and privileged to share with others how God used O.E. Davis and David Gates in close partnership with Him. In 2001 via dugout canoe and bush plane, she thrilled with joy as she worshipped with over a thousand dedicated "Davis Indians" in the Mt. Roraima area of Guyana and Venezuela.

"I've always been a missionary at heart," she said, "but God has given my husband and I the joy of sharing His love with many precious people overseas for sixteen years, mostly in Southeast Asia. Maranatha has added many shorter volunteer trips to other areas of the world."

Eileen has taught school from kindergarten to college. As a librarian she especially enjoys organizing school libraries so the students will be challenged to increase in knowledge. She combines Bible study and nature's secrets by introducing God's two marvelous books to youth in many countries. Mission projects combined with adding new birds, plants, and animals to her life list give travel a Christ-centered purpose.

Life is always fun as she squeezes into her busy schedule hobbies like gardening, cross-country skiing, and making scrapbooks of the places in the world where God sends her and her husband, Jay. Two sons and four grandchildren add to her joy. Truly she can say with John 1:16, "From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another."
