God’s Global Kids ZBS made an impact around the world. This year’s VBS, which was all on zoom, empowered kids as change-agents for Christ. Our mission project partnered us with Soles4Souls.org, an organization that turns unwanted shoes and clothing into opportunity. S4S keeps these items from going to waste (and into landfills) and putting them to good use – providing relief, creating jobs and empowering people to break the cycle of poverty.
With the help of the congregation and a couple of key families, our ZBS was able to collect, so far, 373 pairs of shoes. In addition, Grace has added a collection bin to our property, so we can continue to help people around the globe. Here’s what some of the kids had to say about the project: “I’m really glad that my shoes I grew out of are going to other kids that will use them. — Nevaeh age 14, “I am happy that I can give other people my shoes and they can be happy with them. — Hadassah age 7, “I’m glad the shoes were put to good use.” — Josiah age 11
