This past year I went to Haiti 3 times! I collected TONS of donations of various things to go. Toothpaste, toothbrushes, clothes, CROCs, flip flops, school supplies... even sweaters (LOL). The coolest thing was that I got a WHOLE school's misprinted t-shirts. I washed them all and rolled them to take minimal space up.
One of the things I collected was BRAND NEW TENNIS SHOES! The last time I went to Haiti I just didn't have room to pack them! I thought, oh they will be a blessing another time. I always trust God's timing because He knows way better than me.
And so I wait... I know that when the time is right, He will guide me to where I need to take them.
And then it happened... My beautiful friends went on a mission trip to Jamaica a month or so ago and went on a mission trip, and found out that an orphanage for deaf children needed shoes. And of course, these beauties gave away their shoes and started taking donations for more shoes... I happen to have 27 pairs of shoes including gym shoes and flippies (flip flops) in my basement just waiting for the perfect place to be donated. Isn't that funny?
I mean just plain great!?!
I seriously think it's so awesome to be the hands and feet (and shoes) for Christ. I didn't really do anything... I just stored a bunch of shoes in my basement, someone else did all the work...
I'm just thankful.
