Christmas Shoe Project
|Can Two Walk Together,Except They Be Agreed?

Hi! Everyone, I am writing about a wonderful way to share the love of God with others, specifically children. My husband and I have supported this outreach before and are doing it again this year.
Life Today has many outreaches to help others and at Christmas they have a "Life's Christmas Shoe Project".
The shoe project gives precious children covering for their feet. I am cutting and pasting an excerpt from their website below. Click here to be taken directly to Life Today's website to give toward this outreach. Remember even if you can only give one pair of shoes, it will be such a treasure for the child receiving the gift.
Mark 12:41-44 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
And he called unto him his disciples and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you,That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want, did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
Some of the children who will receive shoes this year live at garbage dumps, scavenging for food and items to sell. They walk over burning trash, broken glass and mounds of diseased rubbish. Others must navigate hot, burning sands in desert regions, or walk on rocky trails to fetch water – all without the comfort and protection.
Most have NEVER received a brand-new pair of shoes! !
