THE SHOE PROJECT
WHERE WE LIVE IN AFRICA, WE SEE HUNDREDS OF KIDS EVERY DAY RUNNING THE STREETS BAREFOOT. SOME WALK MILES EVERY MORNING JUST TO GO TO SCHOOL. WORSE, PEOPLE USE THESE STREETS TO THROW OUT THEIR TRASH, WASTE, AND HAZARDOUS MATERIALS. WALKING BAREFOOT CAN LEAD TO INFECTION, PARASITES, AND DISEASE. ALL THIS HAS PUSHED ABE AND I TO HOST A SHOE EVENT HERE ON MARCH 23. WE'VE PARTNERED WITH A LOCAL CHURCH TO BRING IN KIDS FROM THE POOREST SURROUNDING VILLAGES. WE'RE SETTING UP STATIONS TO WASH THEIR FEET AND GIVE A FREE PAIR OF SHOES TO EACH LITTLE ONE. MOST IMPORTANTLY, THEY'LL HEAR THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.
Please pray that these precious souls would come ready for more than shoes. Pray that their hearts are soft, and that our volunteers are wise as they share.
We have officially closed shoe donations! We are still taking $1 donations to print and attach tags to as many pairs of shoes as possible to ensure personal follow up with each child.
