Our next Gala for Life Fundraiser will be Friday, September 29th, 2023 at the Hyatt Regency in Sarasota, FL.
Our speaker this year will be Kelly Lester from Richmond, VA. Her story is phenomenal, and we hope you join us to hear her in person:
“‘Have you had enough?’ It was just four words, but it was a turning point question in Kelly Lester’s life. For 15 years, Kelly had been running from the Lord, desperate to fill the hurting places in her heart with men, drugs, and every other kind of coping mechanism. But after nearly losing her life in a violent domestic fight, Kelly came to a place of surrender to the question God was asking of her. But God, do you know the things I’ve done? “Yes, Kelly, but if you follow me, I will make beauty from ashes.” Kelly’s story is one that covers so many difficult and painful topics in our world today. Child molestation, raped as a teen, several abortions, drug dealing, eating disorders, homosexuality, pornography, prostitution, and even working in the clinic where she had her first abortion. But beauty triumphs from the ashes, and Kelly is a testament to how God can clean all the dirty parts of a painful life story and make it brand new.”
