First Image Gala
Thanks to generous individuals and a surprise matching gift of $25,000, we exceeded our original and stretch goal. We are beyond grateful!
A Night of Celebration
This year we gathered with almost 500 people from across the Portland Area at the beautiful Red Lion on the Columbia River to celebrate what God is doing in the lives of women facing an unintended pregnancy, the children they carry, fathers, students, and those who have experienced past abortion.
We were impacted by a richly designed walk-through exhibit highlighting First Image’s 3 core programs. We ate good food, experienced uplifting fellowship and worship, and were encouraged in the compassionate work happening through the ministries of First Image.
Ryan Bomberger, our keynote speaker, reminded us that every life has incredible potential and that the act of opening our lives to the least of these makes a world of difference. As somebody conceived in horrific circumstances and invited into a family of 13 mostly adopted children, his story helped us to see what happens when we become active life-givers.
Becca, a recent Heart graduate, shared her incredible redemption story and how she found true healing from her past abortions. You can read her powerful testimony here.
Mark your calendars for 2019!
