$3.10 Poverty Challenge: Day 6

Day 6 of the $3.10 Poverty Challenge began with feeding myself on the Word of God with a continued study from Women of the Bible, this week about the mothers of Moses.

Today was an exciting day of Sensible Shoes ministry at Jesus Gathering Centre in Malindi with Pr Unda. So many people have given to prepare us for this ministry and the day finally arrived that I could love on these kids with their gifts. We brought 100 pair of shoes and needed 150 (which we will deliver today)! Wow, Pr Unda did a wonderful job investing in his relationship with New Beginnings school and bringing the children into his church.

These tiny ones were singing when Pr Ephantus and I reached the church. A joy to behold! After sharing our child-sized message about walking in the way of love (Ephesians 5:1-2), the children found it easy to describe ways to love their neighbor (as they swatted at each other given the close quarters). The teachers blessed us by helping fit the children with their Sensible Shoes according to class grade and we took many pictures of these silly, happy children.

Our overall purpose in focusing Sensible Shoes ministry in the coastal area is to pray into reality the future of these children as God fearing future leaders of the coastal province. We pray long life, spiritual strength, healthy marriages, resisting corruption, supernatural gifts, and so on. We believe that 30 years from now this community will be changed because we continue sowing prayers through Sensible Shoes. This part of ministry is one of my favorite, for sure!
