Two weeks ago, on Palm Sunday, we had Barefoot Weekend at C3. It was a church-wide servolution project where we collected shoes for those in Haiti and the Triangle area.
As a mom I found myself acting in ways that kind of shocked me. My kids brought out the shoes they wanted to give away and my first thoughts were, “You can’t give those away.” Then my kids said things like, “I don’t want to give used shoes”, “I feel like God wanted me to give these shoes”, “You guys have taught us to be generous”. So after I killed my flesh I knew they were right. So we not only gave shoes we didn’t wear any more, but we also gave shoes we loved to wear, knowing God is our provider and we are blessed to be a blessing.
But you guys did the same thing bringing thousands of shoes. Some people even brought brand new shoes – WOW! that is awesome! Somebody brought Addidas shoes with socks tucked inside. Love it!!!
We collected over 12,000 pairs of shoes on Barefoot weekend, and they are still coming in!
C3, we are blessed because we have shoes to give away and still have shoes to wear! Everyday, 300 million people walk around without a pair of shoes. Thanks for being part of the solution!
Here’s a recap video of one of the most emotional services we’ve ever had at c3 church.
