Proof of Your Love

Have you ever had the urge to become a missionary? When I first heard the word "missionary", I thought of the people you see in pictures who've moved their families and now live with tribes in Africa. That's not what I'm talking about. Missionary is simply a person sent out to evangelize. You don't have to move to a foreign country, there is so much that needs to be done right here on our backyards.

A few short weeks ago, I read this post from Alissa at Rags to Stitches titled "Mustard Seed." She had attended a shoe cutting party and spoke about how when we come together to work for the glory of God, we move mountains. Instantaneously, I ran to my husband to read about Sole Hope. We both felt God telling us this is something we needed to do. We had been talking about wanting to do more, to help somehow, but didn't know exactly what. This was it.

We didn't even wait a minute before we ordered our Sole Hope shoe cutting party starter kit here. It guided us through every step. 

We took a leap of faith. Gathered all the needed supplies, and send out the invites. What happened next, was all God.

We made sure this was a family event. We had just as many guys as girls show up! And the kids, not spoiled at all. They had their own craft table, jumpy house and took breaks for juice and cake pops {that I made by the way... recipe posing tomorrow}.

Of course at the end of the party we were all exhausted. Totally ecstatic we had just made 40 pair of shoes {yay God!} and on a sugar high from our phanominal dessert table, that we had a little hula-hoop competition. Lets just say the girls ruled this one.

At the end of the day I realized we didn't have any photos of me and my incredible hubby. But thats ok, the memory of today and knowing there are 40 children out there that will have shoes on their feet, is all that matters.

I encourage you to check out the Sole Hope website and host a party of your own. I know there are many other parties springing from friends who attended today. Helping others is contagious, but someone needs to start. Be that person. 

So let my life be the proof, the proof of Your love.
