Mighty Women of Vision: The Story…
In 2008 Elizabeth Thompson conceptualized and captured the vision for Mighty Women of Vision. Elizabeth based the concept and need on a teaching she heard from Ezekiel 37—the story of God breathing life back into the dry, scattered bones. Her God-inspired desire was to facilitate a spiritual awakening and revival bringing unity in the body of Christ. Her desire to remove denominational boundary lines and to foster unity would become the foundation of Mighty Women of Vision.
Mighty Women of Vision began with a group of women gathering in Elizabeth ’s home for a Bible study. They endeavored to host a Garden Party to benefit a local faith-based organization by spotlighting them to the community and assisting the ministry through helps or financial means. The heart beat of spotlighting other nonprofits has continued through the years with annual fundraisers. Elizabeth’s vision for a non-profit to do philanthropy work has come to fruition through the years, raising funds for several local and global ministries. Locally funds have been raised for the Eugene Mission, Hosea Youth Services, Hannah House (Teen Challenge rehab home), One Hope, Camp Agape, Dove Medical (Crisis Pregnancy Center), Branches of Valor, and for women and children in crisis situations. Internationally funds have been sent to help our partners in India, Malawi and Uganda. Starting in 2018 we have concentrated our efforts in working with Mighty Women of Vision and Youth Ministry in India, founded by Geeta Khora and Kanteswar. This ministry is also installing wells, starting Toast the King gatherings as they reach out to remote villages to share the gospel and providing food, clothing and help to widows and orphans. We desire to come along side to break off poverty and injustice in impoverished areas.
The mission of Mighty Women of Vision is “equipping and empowering women to become the hands, feet, heart, and voice of Jesus.” Toast the King gatherings in many communities has been the launching pad for this ministry, expanding our base to be philanthropists to send out much needed funds to help people in impoverished places. Here in America we do not understand poverty. We have big government that helps with food, shelter, education and health care. God has put on our hearts to target our efforts to India where people die daily from polluted water; children are abandoned on the streets to fend for themselves and widows have no means of support. These are all easy fixes. Through our abundance we can reach out and be the help needed.
Though our emphasis has changed from gathering women together in our communities to the bigger picture of being the hands, feet, heart and voice of Jesus, mainly to the land of India, we know it’s the heart of God. He leads and directs our paths.
We are undergoing our biggest fundraising campaign as of yet in 2019. Together with those who have a heart for the people of India, we are raising funds to purchase land for a children’s home. Children are desperately in need of help. We can provide a safe home, plenty of food, education and take care of their health needs. Let’s get children off the dark streets of India. Please watch the movie Lion and you’ll understand my passion and heart to create a safe home for street children.

Ephesians 4:2-6, “Be completely humble and gentle, be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.”
The year 2020, was filled with devistation of poverty in villages due to the Covid lockdowns. Most of our efforts went toward raising funds for our feeding programs/supplying blankets/and necessary items.
In 2021, we are focusing back on raising funds to build our ministry home. We have purchased land, installed a well and electricity and currently are putting in the foundation.
