Thousands of pairs of shoes will be given away in Africa as a means of spreading the Gospel and sharing the love of Christ to those who need not just a pair of shoes but, more importantly, the salvation God offers to them!

He asked me to do my part and give what He led me to give. Some gave one pair; some gave many pairs. Some gave gently used shoes; some bought brand new shoes to donate.

In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well.
