It’s Almost Here!

Next month is the Race for Hope! Our staff, residents, and interns have been working diligently to get the word out about this fundraising opportunity. Our ladies have been hanging up advertisements and other information about the race at local shops, and we are all very excited for this time of fellowship and rallying together to support this ministry!

For those of you who don’t know, Race for Hope is a 5k walk/10k certified race benefitting Vision of Hope and Faith Bible Seminary. The Race will be hosted at Faith’s campus on June 15th. This is one of our largest fundraisers of the year, making the Race for Hope a vital resource for our ministry. We are continually seeking to be able to provide solid, biblical hope and help to hurting ladies at a very low cost. Because of this goal, we rely heavily on the donations and support of others. Race for Hope serves as a great way to get the word out about VOH and to raise support for our ministry!

Our goal this year is to have 40 teams signed up to support VOH. Currently have 28 teams, so we still need 12 more to reach our goal!

YOU can help us! By signing up for the race as a team captain, you can help get the word out about Vision of Hope and be a vital resource as we strive to keep our program super affordable. And you don’t have to live near Lafayette to join the race. Signing up as a virtual runner will still give you the opportunity to support the ministry and get the word out!

Join us, as we run the race, fixing our eyes on Jesus!


“Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us,
let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles
us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our
eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before
Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand
of the throne of God.”

-Hebrews 12:1-2

Bethany Dunn
Bethany heard about Vision of Hope while attending Word of Life Bible Institute in Florida. When she began praying about what God wanted her to do after graduating, He kept bringing Vision of Hope to her mind. Knowing that there was an internship available, Bethany applied, was accepted, and began her internship with VOH in July, 2012. Since then she has been amazed at the opportunities God has given her to learn more about His Word and how it applies to everyday life. Bethany now serves on staff at Vision of Hope.
