On Saturday night (11/9), Show Hope was blessed to celebrate 10 years of ministry with an anniversary fundraising banquet in Nashville, TN! It was a very special evening full of God’s immense grace and glory. The grand ballroom at Music City Center was filled with grant recipient families, sponsors, donors, and hundreds of supporters from around the country! The celebration was a beautiful culmination of the past 10 years of service as well as a hopeful glimpse into the next ten.
At the beginning of the evening, we set a goal to raise $1 million for the world’s waiting children. We know it was ambitious, but we also know our Lord, our Father to the fatherless; His strength is made perfect in our weakness.
We are so happy to announce that through God’s great glory, we reached our goal and raised ONE MILLION dollars. Thanks be to God!
The spirit of generosity that embodied each individual in that room was such an incredible blessing to witness. What a gift to see God at work in so many hearts! The amount of money that our generous supporters donated on Saturday night is one-tenth of our annual fundraising goal ($10 million) – raised in just ONE night!
We are so grateful to everyone who joined us on this unforgettable evening. We are thankful for Scott Hamilton who hosted the event and shared his heart for adoption. We are thankful for Carissa Woodwyk who gave us a look inside the beautiful story God is writing for her life. We are thankful for the amazing music of Steven Curtis Chapman’s “The Glorious Unfolding” tour. We are thankful for the many Show Hope grant families who shared their stories with us. Most of all, we are thankful for all of YOU who have supported Show Hope in the past 10 years of ministry. Whether you were with us in person or with us in prayer, you have helped us restore the hope of a family to thousands of children over the years. Your faithful obedience has made a difference in the lives of waiting children all over the world. In the words of Steven Curtis Chapman, “the story has only begun.”
