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

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
