This story couldn't have come at a better
time. For our church's packing party we are adding a pr of footwear to everybox.
This has been the one thing that has been the most stressful for me. This
reminds me God will provide!
In a poor, countryside town in Uruguay, four brothers arrived
barefoot at a shoe box gift distribution. They wore tattered handmade sandals to
school, and went barefoot the rest of the time to preserve what little of the
Volunteers asked the brothers what they hoped to
receive in their boxes, and they replied that they just wanted shoes. They
opened their boxes and each had a br...
and new pair of shoes inside. They ran home
yelling, “Daddy, I have shoes to go to school!”
The father came back to
ask if he had to pay for the gifts, and the volunteers explained that the gifts
were freely given as an example of the free gift of salvation through Jesus
Christ. The father cried when he learned the gifts were free, and accepted
Christ. The family told the whole neighborhood what the Lord had done for them,
and many people accepted Christ.
