Four weeks ago the congregation was challenged to collect sneakers, gym shoes and baseball caps for the Syrian Refugee Crisis. Results were tremendous as 70 pairs of shoes and nearly 200 baseball caps were received. They will be mailed out the week of October 1st and should reach their destination in Greece in 6 to 7 weeks.
While the crisis is enormous our prayer is that those who will receive and wear the shoes and caps will sense the love and care through this small effort. Remember the words of Jesus, “As you do unto the least of these my brothers you do unto me.”
Please be in prayer that the boxes arrive in good condition and that those who will wear them will find peace and safety for themselves and their families.
A special thank you to our partners in this ministry. United Faith Community Church, Valley, Nebraska and First United Methodist Church, Hamburg, Iowa.
Will keep you posted if a notice of reply is sent.
