We reached our goal for RFH 2014!

We praise the Lord for His abundant mercies! He has provided Vision of Hope with so much and we are grateful for His latest display of His glory: we reached our $40,000.00 fundraising goal for the ministry’s Race for Hope 2014!


It is always good to reach goals. As depicted in the shaded thermometer above, our residents, interns, volunteers, and staff worked so hard to make the goal and God blessed the hard work through financial giving from generous souls like you! For that, we are thankful.

As you enjoy your summer, know that we are celebrating the goodness of God and praising Him for supporters like you.

-Pastor Mark Shaw (thankful to Christ for His sacrificially-giving children)
