Moses Samuels has a shady past. One night he got shot in the head by a druggie and he was left to die in an alley. It so happened that Elijah, a pastor, was walking his dog for the night in that area. When he found Moses, he immediately asked for help without leaving him out of his sight. Moses soon found himself alive in a hospital and in the company of the pastor. When he was finally okay, Elijah offered him a job and a home in his mission. Soon enough, Moses gave himself to the Lord and became one of His most loyal followers. Years after, God sent Moses to Henrick, Texas, a place full of evil. With a mighty responsibility, Moses set to work. With the help of some good citizens in that area, he faced the evils head on. However, in order for him to succeed he needs to fully trust the Almighty despite the uncertainty and heavy challenges he would surely encounter.

The moment I read the first page of "Hells Gate" I was immediately transported to Henrick Texas. That is how good this book is. From the beginning until the end, I was everywhere the story was and I witnessed how God worked His mysterious ways. It is beautifully written and I can sense the passion and dedication the author gave for the completion of this book. I found this to be thrilling and very moving. "Hells Gate" reads as if it were taken out of the Bible. It is full of adventure, love and miracles. Not only was the story beautiful, but I was compelled to follow the characters on their mission and I couldn't let go.

Also, I believe this book is a miracle itself. It changed the way I pray and it made me want to read the Bible. "Hells Gate" inspired me and made me believe I could always be a better daughter to the Almighty Father.
