Barefoot Mile

Someone at our church organized a Barefoot Mile walk to bring awareness to the very real problem of Child Slavery and to raise money to rescue children.   Dr. Jeff Brodsky runs JOY international and has been going barefoot for nearly 5 years as he goes about the work of rescuing children and bringing awareness to this problem.

The older 5 kids (except one that had an injured foot) walked barefoot (as did Rob and I).   Miss C walked the mile with shoes on.   Not a peep or complaint in the bunch.  I'm thankful God has given my children compassion for, and a desire to serve "the least of these."

"The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' Matthew 25:40

We were thankful that the weather cleared for this.  It had been raining for weeks, but we had a bright sunny morning.  By the time we got home the sky was pouring buckets again.
