Tomorrow, November 7, is Orphan Sunday around the country. Churches everywhere will be discussing the plight of parentless children and what we can do about it. Maranatha will be observing “shoeless sunday” as a way to remind ourselves that there are many who are without the basic necessities in life – and there is something we can do about it.
300 million children worldwide have no shoes.
1 million children die each year from preventable diseases caused by the lack of proper shoes.
We can do better.
Orphans have a special place in the heart of God. Adoptive parents are among my heroes. Let focus in on solutions, and make a difference in the lives of millions of kids. Or maybe just make a difference for one child.
