  • Sharing Smiles through Shoes and Joy

    Put shoes on children and smiles on their faces!
    What child doesn’t love getting a new pair of shoes? New shoes are fun! They’re clean, bright and colorful! New shoes help a child run faster, jump higher, go further!
    This spring and summer Custer Road families will be able to share the joy of new shoes with children in Peru, through our partnership with Buckner International’s Shoes for Orphan Souls.

    You can help by:
    • Giving to the communion offering on March 1. The offering will be used to purchase new shoes and to send Custer Road members to Peru to deliver them.
    • Joining the team to deliver shoes to children in Peru July 23 – August 2. You’ll love seeing the smile on a child’s face when you put that new pair of shoes on them!
    • Praying for the team who will deliver the shoes and the children who will receive them.

    Not only are new shoes fun, they provide important benefits. Shoes protect against disease and infection. They allow children to attend school. They provide hope by demonstrating worth and God’s love to orphans and vulnerable children. And they help connect families to ministries that can transform their lives.
    For more information on how you can help, contact Lanie Williams at laniew1983@gmail.com.
