Shoes on Bubembe Island

A giant red duffle bag stuffed full of brightly colored flip flops made its way from the U.S. to tiny little Bubembe Island via three airplanes, a car, a ferry, a small motor boat, and the shoulders of Jonathon, Vickie’s nephew. Another bag of cute little plastic shoes joined this one on the ferry. Heidi and Vickie will never know the significance of such a gift to me (see the links below), but the children were certainly very excited about their new shoes.

Pink, blue, green, and yellow captured our attention…likely never to be so bright again. Lord protect these little feet in every place they trod.
