Greetings from Soles For Jesus, where we just celebrated our fifth anniversary of sharing shoes and the Gospel in Africa. Our event theme was, “God is Faithful!” as He’s guided us with each step. We have much to be thankful for and because of your help this year, we’ve been able to make our greatest impact in Africa yet!
As we celebrate what the Lord is doing throughout Africa, we can’t ignore the hardships they’re facing. Especially in West Africa, the situation is tragic and our hearts are breaking for our friends who live amongst the Ebola outbreak that has claimed many lives. I am grateful to report that as I type this letter, our second container of 8,000 pairs of shoes is on its way to Liberia this year!
Serving people in such desperate circumstances with the love of Christ is what Soles For Jesus is all about. Sydney Thomas, our partner in Liberia said, “Providing shoes for the most needy people is such a timely intervention during this crisis. Shoes offer protection for their physical bodies, and the Gospel is the only hope for their souls.” God is moving in Liberia and we are receiving incredible reports!
As you can imagine, it takes financial resources to move this mission forward. This is where you can make a difference! As we enter the season of giving, I encourage you to pray about giving a gift to Soles For Jesus. Each donated dollar helps send a pair of shoes and a Gospel booklet printed in their language.
You can also give a gift on behalf of a friend or relative, and I will send them a personalized card for their gift. John Piper says, “To belong to Jesus is to embrace the nations with Him.” Would you link arms with us this Christmas season, as we embrace the nations of Africa with His life-changing message?
Thank you for your prayers and partnership. May God bless you and your family this Christmas.
Serving Him together,
Founder, Executive Director
P.S. For each donation over $150, we’ll send you a SFJ t-shirt as our gift to you!
You can give online at SolesForJesus.org, or by mailing the enclosed card.
