Because of the graciousness of our God, we truly are more blessed to give than to receive!  When we give poor and hurting children a new pair of shoes and share with them the love of Jesus, God fills them with hope and joy that impacts their lives for eternity.  It’s absolutely incredible to watch and such an honor to be a part of God’s work!  Kari Richardson’s testimony shows while her intentions were only to be a blessing, God in His goodness blessed her.

“Words can’t express how this mission has affected me.  It has touched my heart in so many ways.  I not only got to experience things I’ve never seen before, but I also felt I made a difference in the lives of many of these children.  I even got the opportunity to meet Armenica.  She’s my sponsor child.  It was amazing.  She’s a very pretty, young lady.  This mission will be an experience that I will keep close to my heart for the rest of my life.  Although I have really missed home, I can’t wait to share my experiences with my family and friends.

Thank you to everyone who made this trip possible.  Most importantly I thank God.  He’s been with me the whole time.  I wouldn’t have been able to do this without Him.”
