Impact Story from Uruguay

  1. 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 sandals remained.

    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.
