love with His hands

"Truly I tell you,
if you have faith as small as a mustard seed,
you can say to this mountain,
‘Move from here to there,’
and it will move.
Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Matthew 17:20

Thank you, Lord, the shoes have made it to the House of Hope!


My missionary friend, Lisa Hovingh, wrote that on January 10 she brought a bag of shoes to the 3-year-olds and measured the feet of the young boys. (Very wise, I think, of her not to overwhelm with bags and bags of shoes all at one time....she plans on bringing another bag Monday.)


Look! She sent along some pictures (sorry for the small size). It's amazing to me that those little white, light-up sandals were in a heap of shoes on my dining room table just a few weeks ago and now they're protecting the feet of precious girl aptly named, get this...Faith.

Looking at the 'light-up' shoes.

My prayer is that they will know Christ's love through ours...





By Our Love
Brothers, let us come together
Walking in the Spirit, there's much to be done...
We will come reaching, out from our comforts
And they will know us by our love...

Sisters, we were made for kindness
We can pierce the darkness as He shines through us...
We will come reaching, with a song of healing...
And they will know us by our love!

The time is now
Come Church arise...
Love with His hands
See with His eyes...
Bind it around you,
Let it never leave you,
And they will know us by our love...

Children, You are hope for justice,
Stand firm in the Truth now, set your hearts above
You will be reaching, long after we’re gone,
And they will know you by your love!
