Each year, Jeremiah's Hope hosts our annual fundraising dinner in Abilene, Texas.  We would like to invite you, if you are in the Abilene or West Texas area, to join us on Thursday, September 20th at 6:30 in the evening at the Hunter Welcome Center on the campus of Abilene Christian University.  

This year our theme will focus around Job 29:12, "I rescued the poor who cried for help, and the fatherless who had none to assist them."  Jeremiah's Hope's ministry is about rescuing children who are orphaned and alone or who are living in family situations that put them at risk.  We invite you to come hear about how you can help us rescue more children!

Tickets for the dinner are $18 per person or a table of 8 for $120.  

Tickets can be purchased online using the PayPal link below:
