We have a family that comes to the carepoint every week, and i noticed the little boy, about age 3-4 never has on shoes, so last week i decided to bring him a pair of Joey's shoes. It really brakes my heart to see these children walking around these nasty, dirty, streets barefoot, and their feet are so dirty, and beat up, we really don't know how good we have it, at least we have a choice, most of these don't. It just brings me back to that scripture:
Matthew 25:35-36, 40
I was hungry and you fed me,
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink,
I was homeless and you gave me a room,
I was shivering and you gave me clothes,
I was sick and you stopped to visit,
I was in prison and you came to me,
... the King will say, I'm telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these
things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me you did it to me.
I know that i have quoted this scripture lately, but the Lord just keeps bringing me back to it.

I just wanted to share a couple of pictures of our trip to carepoint El Espino, yesterday, we prayed that the rain would stay away, and thanks to prayers, it did. We gave the kids pictures to color, and candy to eat, i'm sure the moms love us for that, and we had one of our helpers share a word about having faith, and trusting the Lord when times are not good, and going the way you want them to, it was encouraging. It was a great day, and we are now up to helping 65 families with food, PTL! God is good!
