Bibbo shoe drive

We have officially launched our shoe drive for the children of Bibbo school.  Today I had the privilege of sharing with the youth at our church about the plight of jiggers.  Our youth pastor, feeling his own conviction on just how blessed he was, brought in all his shoes.  This is just one side of the stage where his shoes were lined up.

              .I was able to share with the kids about jiggers, the work Sole Hope is doing in Uganda to help with jiggers and encourage them to get involved.  They asked a lot of questions and you could see the concern on several of their faces.  There were approximately 40 kids there today and if every child commits to a pair of shoes, 40 children in Bibbo will have shoes.  But there are 300 children in Bibbo who need shoes so we need your help to get the word out there.  Share this blog with folks you know.  Tell them about what we are doing.  We have some fun things we will be doing so you can give these as "These shoes were purchased in your honor for a child in Uganda" Christmas gifts. In the grand scheme of things, this is not a lot of money.  But it will take a village here in Austin to provide shoes for all the children in Bibbo village.
If you are interested in purchasing shoes, please use this link and be sure to specify "shoes for Bibbo".  The shoes cost $9 a pair.  Remember, you aren't just purchasing shoes....you are preventing jiggers, providing education, employing Ugandans and most importantly....helping to share the love of Christ with those in need.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humblywith your God.
Micah 6:8
