Today I board a plane to Africa with an amazing group of story tellers. Going to Africa has been on my bucket list, so this is a dream come true for me. Not to mention, getting to serve the amazing people of Uganda with Sole Hope! Wednesday night Ernie came up to me at church, handing me an envelope full of pictures from a Shoe Cutting Party that his BFG (Bible Fellowship Group) hosted! He wanted to make sure that I delivered the pictures to Dru and Asher, so that they could feel love and support from South Carolina. In return, I promised to bring some pictures back of the children that are now wearing shoes from the soles that they possibly helped to cut out.
This is one of the main reasons I LOVE Sole Hope! Yes they are on the ground in Uganda. Yes teams go to Africa to remove jiggers and serve Ugandans. BUT there are multiple onramps for people in the states, like Ernie’s BFG, to get involved.
I am honored to have the opportunity over the next week to tell stories of love, compassion and hope, while serving the men, women and children of Uganda, 2 feet at a time! Stop by this week to see pictures and read #solestories!
Until then, take a moment to get familiar with the story of Sole Hope.
