This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not
that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1 John 4:9-10

One Day Without Shoes!

Today we're joining in on One Day Without Shoes in Kitale, Kenya in honor of all our friends here who go without shoes every single day. Not having shoes to wear is more than an inconvenience and a discomfort. It means being extremely susceptible to infections, diseases and jiggers that enter the body through vulnerable, unprotected feet. Please consider participating, and remember- it's estimated that 300 million people go without shoes everyday and approximately 1 million people die each year as a result. If you decide to go without shoes, keep in mind that the people whose shoeless feet you're stepping into do not walk on concrete sidewalks and tile floors. They walk on dirt, mud and rock- a terrain that is filled with bacteria, fungus, parasites and other dangerous articles. I'm planning to give you guys a full report at the end of the day, so stay tuned! Until then, I'll be praying that God protects both my feet and the feet of his people all around the world as we walk barefoot.
