Rachael Neal from Gateway Mission joins the team to share some incredibly good news in our bad news world—how Jesus is powerfully working through Gateway Mission and in her life. First, Rachael, grew up in a beautiful Christian family, she knew all the answers, but she didn’t know God—she needed a heart change. Then, the Holland Rescue Mission is now Gateway Mission—the name change is all about becoming even more laser-focused about seeing lives transformed by Jesus; all about being a gateway for desperate hearts to be continually made new by Jesus!
Next, Justin grew up in a great family, but experienced the wounds of rejection. That led to drug and alcohol addiction to fill the void. That’s when he humbled himself and reached out to Gateway. Then, Megan, grew up with an angry alcoholic father. She had to get out. She ended up living in the woods, got addicted to drugs. But now her life is being transformed by Jesus through Gateway. Finally, Rachael opens her heart to share how Jesus is freeing her from being a control freak! It’s all about surrender to the only One in control. If this encourages you, please share it!
Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.
Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
Perry and Shawna Mornings helps start your day with heart-to-heart conversations, compelling guests, and songs reminding you that you are Abba’s child! You have been blessed to be a blessing, and you have been loved to share Jesus’ love!
