Connie Yelle 's fundraiser for FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

Size 550x415 dsc00885

Giving HOPE to 1000+ orphans in Africa through an Empowerment Program that changes their life, their families lives and their community.

This is my second year to be running a marathon (December 9th) with the Miles for Hope 2012 team.

To be quite honest, last year's marathon weather was MISERABLE! It was in the low 40's and raining pretty much the whole time.

You may wonder why I would sign up for another marathon, commiting myself to hours and hours of training and risking the chance of miserable weather again. Well, it's because I think it is TOTALLY worth my time and effort to raise money to help give orpahns in Rawanda HOPE for a future.

These orphans participate in a 3 year empowerment program, through ZOE Ministry (, in which they learn about God and His love for them as well as a business or trade that will allow them to support themselves and their younger siblings. What is even more amazing is that once these orphans see HOPE, they pass it on to others in their community by sharing their resources and training.

Please watch the video above to learn more about this amazing program and the work God is doing through ZOE Ministry.

I would love to have you join me and my team in sharing God's love and giving HOPE to 1000+ orphans by making a donation of any amount. Together we can make a difference and change someone's life!
