Put yourselves in their shoes

{Check this post out from Lifesong. I love how they challenge all of us to put ourselves in the shoes of one of the kids in their care. Get your kids involved! Remember that we are blessed to be a blessing!}

Edmund is just one example of many who have been helped by Lifesong Honduras, and are now giving back.  I love how he obviously cares for these kids and even gives what little he has away so they can have shoes!  What a great example. Watch this inspiring video!

Here’s a question for you… How many pairs of shoes do you have?.

10? 20? 30? (eek!) {Yes, I am guilty too!}

The kids at Lifesong Honduras have one pair each… sometimes two (a pair of boots to serve in).  Wow.

This Saturday join us for Shoe Saturday.  Simply count your shoes… and get your kids in on it too.  

Have them count theirs.  

And then tell them about the children in Honduras.  

Tell them about Edmund who sacrifices his own money so children in the village can have something on their feet.  

Then as a family pray.  

Thank God for His faithfulness and His blessings on your family.  Thank Him for raising up men and women and children in Honduras to care for the poor, the orphaned, the vulnerable.  Ask Him to continue to provide and watch over them.  Ask Him raise up supporters so Lifesong can continue to serve in Honduras.

We are reaching for a goal:
Please pray that we can reach this goal?   Maybe God wants to use you?  Will you prayerfully consider joining us?
Maybe you can't give $30 a month... Maybe you can give more.  Today we want to encourage you to give your best!

One commitment we've received was a one time gift... Another commitment was matched by the donor's employer... meaning his gift has now quadrupled!  We are so excited to see people rise up and give what they can!

Thank you to those who have committed so far.
We have 15.5 commitments.

Can we make 100?

We have 7 days... 84.5 commitments to go.

With your help we can do it!
