At Gate Beautiful, we believe that while survivors of human trafficking, prostitution, and addiction have emergency physical needs that have to be met, there is a much deeper healing available to them. Our desire is to walk with survivors to safety, support them in recovery, and point them to Hope. We believe Hope is a person.
The man at the gate called Beautiful begged there for what scholars believe to be about forty years. Every day looked the same. Every day he left with hopefully the money he needed to have his physical needs met, but nothing deeper. The world offers money, self-help, and false purpose. What Peter and John offered this man is exactly what we are inspired to offer to each survivor we serve. The solutions of this world do not satisfy, but the deep healing of Jesus is why Gate Beautiful exists.
