BAREFOOT in the DUMPS

SOLES 4 SOULS. Truly nothing can be more humbling than providing shoes for a child or homeless person or anyone in need of protecting their feet.


The 50,000 Pairs in 50 Days Challenge
SOLES 4 SOULS has a Challenge to reach a goal of 50,000 pairs of shoes in 50 days. I checked today...that's why I waited to share. There are only 23 days left and they have:

8,502 pairs donated

This troubled me greatly because I have seen the children & people here in Mexico without shoes, walking barefoot. I know the conditions in which they live. I know that in the United States as difficult as the times are economically, most people have more than one pair of shoes and some have collections. 

SOLES 4 SOULS has 8 stories available to read on their site herebut this same type of story is multiplied thousands of times over throughout many places in the world. 

I have met many like "Roberto", a 10 year old, whose story they share. He lives with his uncle's family in the city dump outside of this town....and though it names one place, it's true here where I live and in many other countries. Each day he gets up at dawn to sort through the trash looking for items they can clean up and sell or for suitable things to eat. 

Tomorrow is my garbage day and early before the garbage trucks arrive many people will have passed by going through the bags of garbage even before they arrive at the dumpsite. It is their way of life. It is now illegal for the children to work at the dumpsite. Yet still I have seen families come by together searching.

I recently discovered that there is a 19 year old, right out of high school, walking across America barefoot...known as DASH...His real name is Dashiel Alsup. It looks like he began in April and will be completing his journey on Tuesday, December 9th in Jacksonville, Florida.

"Teenager Dashiel Alsup is nearing the end of his epic barefoot hike across America for shoe charity Soles4Souls, a non-profit dedicated to providing free shoes to those in need. By the time he steps into the Atlantic Ocean on Monday, Dash will have logged nearly 3,500 miles -- mostly barefoot -- to raise funds and awareness for Soles4Souls. " TO READ MORE click here

You can see his blog where Dash journaled his journey here A Single Pebble; 

Clearly Dash understands the GREAT need!

Footwear is a basic need that many of us take for granted every day.

I know that you have heard the expression

“to walk a mile in someone else’s shoe” 
and most of us know its meaning

I ask you today to think about how much you are spending on Christmas gifts and really consider
donating to this Challenge of Making a Difference for 50,000...and it just takes $5. Just think if you or children you know had to endure not just months but daily for years walking this way, what would you do to get them a pair of shoes? 

If it was not for this GREAT NEWS that was released December 4th because of Dash's sacrificial walk and OKA b. shoes...I would truly wonder if there is any HOPE left of meeting their goal. 

On Tuesday, they will be halfway in their days and not near the half way mark of pairs of shoes.
Were it not for DASH & OKA b. many children and adults would continue without shoes.

"For seven months, Dash has endured countless wounds to his feet and many cold and rainy nights spent in a cramped tent, as well as more than a few tense moments with locals unsure of his motivations."

THANK YOU DASH and OKA b. & any of you that are moved to buy two pair of shoes for $5 from the bottom of my sole to my soul, I truly thank you on behalf of those without shoes blessed by SOLES4SOULS

They are at work in over 45 states and 61 countries! Again I ask you as I did the last time:

WHAT IS A SOUL WORTH?
[when soles are available for just 5 dollars
to help show Jesus to these precious ones]

PREPARATION for CHRISTMAS

I HAVE SO MANY IDEAS TO HELP YOU REALLY GET INTO THE HOLIDAYS!
TO HONOR JESUS CHRIST & HIS HUMBLE BIRTH!

I HARDLY COULD DECIDE WHICH TO POST IN THE "HUSTLE & BUSTLE" of CHRISTMAS.

WE HAVE SO EASILY FORGOTTEN THE MESSAGE JESUS CAME TO BRING TO MANKIND! IF WE HAD, HOW COULD EVENTS TAKE PLACE LIKE WE SAW THIS PAST WEEK..."BLACK FRIDAY", INDIA...

...SO I STARTED OUT WITH THE ONE THAT TOUCHED MY HEART FIRST! THEN THE NEXT ONES LISTED ARE MY TOP CHOICES IN CHRISTMAS TRUSTWORTHY PLACES TO GIVE AS HE GAVE! "PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORD" is a song but also our PURPOSE!

IMPORTANT NOTE: I have written 7 different ones but Blogger only will post the beginning & ending even though my preview shows it all...I have checked the HTML, it's complete so  guess this is ALL. The other 7 are continued in the following post!

Love well. Give wells. | 2007 Projects | 2008 Projects

People are dying from the lack of clean water. In fact, it's the leading cause of death in under resourced countries. 1.8 million people die every year from water born illnesses. That includes 3,900 children a day. The solution to this problem is directly beneath our feet. Drilling a fresh water well is a relatively inexpensive, yet permanent solution to this epidemic. $10 will give a child clean water for life. That's not an estimate. It's a fact. And here's another fact: Solving this water problem once and for all will cost about $10 billion. Not bad considering Americans spent $450 billion on Christmas last year. Our hope is that, by celebrating Christ in a new way at Christmas, the church can serve as the leading movement behind ending the water crisis once and for all.

Advent Conspiracy asks that every church and organization who participates in this program give at least 25% of their offering to the water/redistribution project of their choice. For three years, Advent Conspiracy has partnered with Living Water International to help solve this problem. Oh, and no money comes through Advent Conspiracy.

Learn more about LWI and donate here.

HAITI RELIEF PROJECT

Haiti in the Wake of Hurricane Season

Four tropical storms and hurricanes battered Haiti in August and September—Fay, Gustav, Hanna, and Ike. The storms killed more than 1,400 people, and flooding left nearly 1 million homeless or in dire need of help. The situation is desperate, and is getting little public attention in the outside world (read the full story here).

Many of the water wells in the affected areas were contaminated, buried under several feet of mud, or destroyed altogether. Areas where flood victims have been evacuated are overcrowded, and badly in need of safe drinking water.


The LWI Haiti team is doing all they can to repair wells in the hardest-hit areas—particularly in the devastated city of Gonaives. Shipments of parts are on their way, and with current resources, they will be able to repair nearly 50 broken-down wells in the next weeks.

But here's the thing: with more funds, the team would be able to complete projects on 100 additional sites in dire need of water. Each well costs about $3,000 and serves an average of 1,500 people, so every dollar counts. Please consider making a special gift for this relief project




**********************************************************
**********************************************************
SO AS YOU "DECK THE HALLS" and "PREPARE YE THE WAY", please consider how you can support one of these great charities and show the real meaning of Christmas from a heart that's open to GIVING and BLESSING others..."the needs are great, but the laborers are few." The harvest is ready but it starts with YOU! Each one must reach one and we have been made
AWARE by the ADVENT CONSPIRACY this year GIVE PRESENCE not presents

WORSHIP FULLY
SPEND LESS

LOVE ALL

HUNGER

THANK YOU FOR VISTING 
and SHARING IN
MISSION 4 MONDAY!
[if you need more information on participation, please click & go here]

Since this week is THANKSGIVING and
times are tough for many & getting more tough daily, perhaps you are not celebrating as usual...but still giving THANKS! My heart aches for you but it makes me very aware of the days in which we live and the sufferings of many, especially children that are HUNGRY!

I am not affliliated with any of the following organizations, however I know the benefits they bring & offer those less fortunate than ourselves: Those  in HUNGER

Scope of the problem 

An estimated 854 million people in the developing world currently do not 
consume enough calories to sustain healthy bodies

"Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ as found in Matthew 25


What is hunger?

Hunger is when people do not get enough food to provide the nutrients
(carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water) for active and healthy lives

Malnutrition results from a lack of calories and/or inadequate consumption of
one or more nutrients such as Vitamin A or iodine.

Famine is a situation of extreme scarcity of food, potentially leading to  widespread starvation, which is defined as extreme suffering or death from prolonged lack of food.

HUNGER KILLS~Did you know every day 25,000 people die from hunger and hunger related causes? Of those, 18,000 are children. One person dies of hunger every 3.6 seconds. That is more than 17 people each minute; 1,042 each hour; which translates into 9,125,000 every single year! One in six people on the planet is hungry.

More fatal than war~An estimated 17 percent of all deaths in the world are due to malnutrition and unsafe water. In the last 50 years, more than 418 million people have died
from hunger and poor sanitation--nearly three times the number of people who died in all wars of the 20th century.

What is Chronic hunger?

Chronic hunger reduces the body's ability to function and leads to a weakened state, leaving a
person more susceptible to disease. It's these preventable illnesses that often lead to death.

When hunger progresses into starvation, the body literally eats up all its reserves of protein and
energy. At this point, even with intervention, a victim may be so weak that he or she may not recover.

Hunger’s real causes

World population is not the reason for it—contrary to what some might believe.

The real reason nearly one billion of the planet’s 6.7 billion people are undernourished is because
of food-distribution problems, natural disasters, government policies, civil unrest, inequitable trade policies, lack of knowledge and greed.

What FOOD for the HUNGRY is doing?

Food for the Hungry currently impacts individuals in 26 countries, attempting to alleviate
hunger and malnutrition in the world. At Food for the Hungry, we are accountable before God
and before our donors to use gifts in the best way possible. We give 91 percent of our resource
income to field programs and relief interventions.

What you can do?

Food for the Hungry offers many ways to help. 

(1)Perhaps you want to sponsor a child or (2) join our Prayer Network. Or you can(3) join our overseas volunteers for a few weeks with our Short-term Team Ministry or a few years
through our Hunger Corps program. (4) Or, you can donate online www.fh.org or by calling 
1-800-2-HUNGERS.

Food for the Hungry currently impacts individuals in 26 countries providing emergency relief
and implementing development programs throughout the world. This includes our field  programs , exploratory programs and presence of our local-country offices (National Organizations). We help the world's most disadvantaged people through child-development
programs, agriculture and clean-water projects, health and nutrition programs, microenterprise
loans and education; teaching communities to become self-sustaining. Food for the Hungry is a Christian organization founded in 1971 by Dr. Larry Ward. For more information please visit www.fh.org

WORLD VISION they have the perfect solution for you Christmas gift giving!

Give a gift. Change a life.Choose one of the categories below to browse over 100 unique gifts.
The early-morning bleating of a dairy goat is a happy sound for children in countries like Haiti and Kenya — they know it’s ready to be milked. A goat nourishes a family with protein-rich milk, cheese, and yogurt, and can offer a much-needed income boost by providing offspring and extra dairy products for sale at the market. It even provides fertilizer that can dramatically increase crop yields!

  • Clean Water 
  • Women and girls in developing communities often spend a large portion of their day fetching water for their families — water that may not even be clean. Your gift to the Clean Water Fund will help provide resources such as safe, protected wells, hand pumps, and latrines to improve sanitation. You’ll be safeguarding the health of mothers, children, and entire communities by minimizing waterborne illness. Plus, you’ll give mothers more time to care for their families, and girls the time they need to attend school.

  • Food & Agriculture 
  • Every seven seconds a hungry child dies. As food prices soar, the poorest populations — especially children — suffer most. The current food crisis threatens to push 100 million people deeper into poverty, making children even more vulnerable. Please give generously to help us continue providing food and other care to those in greatest need.

  • Girls & Women
  • An estimated 2 million children are ensnared in the global commercial sex trade — most of them girls. Those who escape or are rescued face a difficult physical and emotional recovery process. Your gift will offer them hope through assistance such as medical care,... Read More

COMPASSION ~ CHILDREN IN POVERTY ~Many of you are familiar with SPONSORING a Child through COMPASSION but they have so much more that they make available to get involved & bless others with so much less.

"Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.


Founded by the Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training.

Today, Compassion helps more than 1 million children in 24 countries."


What is the Poverty Wheel?* [You can visually see this by going here.]
Poverty is a complex problem. The poverty wheel is a graphic representation of the problem of poverty. 

The hub represents absolute poverty. 

The spokes represent the different needs of those in poverty: Economic, Health,  Social,
Environmental, Educational, and Spiritual ~ Compassions shares this:
"Without an understanding of the Word and ways of God, it is difficult to understand yourself. Nearly four-fifths of our world’s children are growing up with no knowledge of God’s love for them through Jesus Christ. Compassion works in many communities where Christianity is not the religion of the majority. We cannot — and will not— coerce any child or parent to become a Christian. But many have decided to follow Jesus as they experience God’s love through the ministry of the local church partnering with Compassion. Children’s lives undergo a revolution when they realize that God loves and values them. They understand that they were placed on the earth with a divine purpose in mind. Many go on to develop a deep commitment to
discover and fulfill that purpose for God’s glory."

 The rim represents enough!!!!!!!

Compassion’s mission is to bring children from the hub of the wheel (poverty) to the rim (enough).
*Taken from Too Small to Ignore

Ways to Get Involved

 

It's not enough to just know a lot about poverty. As God's family, we are called to do something about it.

Here are a whole bunch of
practical ways that you can make a difference for children in poverty around the world. So what are you waiting for? Please click on HERE and see how you can be involved!

THE CHOICE is clearly up to you about what you will say to the Lord when He asks

I'm hungry for a Thanksgiving meal but they don't celebrate it here & I don't have an oven, although they sell the turkeys & at Christmas, there are places that prepare them with their trimmings...but cranberry sauce & stuffing is hard to come by. I have a microwave oven but I use it to warm up food that's already prepared...not even TV dinners of turkey are available (no TV dinners)...maybe I'll have KFC~Kentucky Fried Chicken. But at least, I know I'll eat something & be GIVING THANKS!!! Happy Thanksgiving & many blessings on each of you!


Please remember to keep MICEY (Michele Anderson @ Confessions of a Girl Who Loves Jesus) in prayer as she is on her MISSION TRIP to HAITI! In her own words...gone fishin' !

WHAT IS A "SOUL" WORTH?

WELCOME TO MISSION 4 MONDAY!

Many have shared some wonderful "missions" & causes that God is using you for, right where you are...serving.

If you are new to Mission4Monday and need more information, please go here. Or else, just look at the previous posts of others or this week to know we all were

MADE FOR A MISSION!

For example: when I was visiting blogs last week, over at Jill's @Forever n Ever n Always, she was sharing about Soles 4 Souls and many other great causes. So I chose Soles 4 Souls & did some research on them because here in Mazatlan, they do something similar. I've seen the great need of children and adults for shoes.

The 50,000 Pairs in 50 Days Challenge

On November 10th, Soles 4 Souls launched a Charity Campaign - 50 K in 50 days meaning that in the next 50 days (from Nov. 10th) they want to raise enough money to buy 50,000 pairs of shoes and I want to make sure everyone knows about this great endeavor.

"The best part - $5 buys 2 pairs of shoes! It takes under 2 minutes and only three clicks to make a donation. So if you think this is something you can do...five bucks, three clicks and two minutes for 2 pairs of shoes, just visit http://www.50000shoes.com/."

Also, every person who donates on the site will be entered in to win a trip to Mexico to hand deliver the shoes they bought to families in need. Imagine handing a child their very first pairs of shoes!

One section of their website shows the GLOBAL NEEDS as being in Landfills (commonly known as Dumpsites here), Orphanages, and Village Women. I certainly can vouch for this need...as well as "street kids" and homeless.

They also distribute shoes in the good ole USA...in domestic areas such as:
Disaster Relief, Appalachia Mountains Region, Summer Camps for Disadvantaged Children, Navajo/Hopi Indian Reservations, Women Domestic Abuse Shelters, Inner City Hospitals and Homeless Shelters. You can read more about this by clicking here.

There are so many ways that you can help give one of the simplest, but most important gifts to those in need – Shoes. They even allow you to join in on the Distribution Trips.
Here
are their upcoming trips: Reynosa, Mexico; Tegucigalpa, Honduras; Xela, Guatemala; Kampala, Uganda.

THIS IS AN AMAZING CHARITY...you can read much more about them at their WEBSITE http://www.soles4souls.org/ or BLOG http://soles4souls.blogspot.com/

SOLES 4 SOULS has a MISSION: make shoes available & get shoes to people who need shoes.
Over 300 million people around the world don’t have shoes and are forced to walk around unsafe and in potentially life-threatening conditions [not only is it unsafe physically, but having to look down all the time causes these people to also live without dignity and confidence].

WE ALL CAN TAKE PART IN THEIR MISSION

Let's help them reach this GOAL!!! 50,000 pairs of shoes in 50 days! Soles 4 Souls are "Changing the World one pair at a Time"(it's their motto)

Have you heard the expression "walk a mile in someone else's shoes"? The idea is that by doing so you may get a better understanding of their life or what they have walked through during their life to be where they are at. I pray that you will think of "walk a mile in my shoes" as you consider helping in some small to large way. Get the word out...though times are tough and may get tougher...everyone can afford at least $5.
[That's one fast food meal...you can give up and double the blessing] Please check out how you can get involved. You could end up winning a trip.

DO YOU BELIEVE "SOULS" CAN BE WON THROUGH PROVIDING "SOLES" FOR FEET?

"...Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ " Matthew 25:37-40
