Are you ready for this all of you “ZoeForKids honorary moms and dads”?

Congratulations on your new ‘babies’!!!  Not one… not two… but you are the proud parents of an additional 72 girls and 91 boys!  ZoeForKids is adopting ANOTHER group of orphans and vulnerable children… at the Maboloka School!

As you know, for this Christmas 2014, we plan to give each of the 300 orphans at the Majakeneng village school a Wildlife Bible StoryTeller… a stuffed critter (lions, elephants, and bears… OH MY!) with about 15 hours of Bible stories recorded inside.  That donation drive is still ongoing, but we are getting closer to our targeted amount needed…. Thanks to YOUR generosity!!!

BUT, what are we going to do for our new wee ones at the Maboloka school… well, we are going to begin at the beginning, of course…  with CHRISTMAS SHOES!!!

Starting today, we are asking that the Lord will provide through you, 163 pairs of shoes.  I need to have them by October 1 to ensure their delivery to South Africa.  Remember that South Africa is in the Southern Hemisphere and is entering winter… so we will be needing sturdy, warm shoes, like sneakers… no flip flops please!  Here is a list of the sizes we need by gender…

If you purchase shoes, they should be sent to Sally Herman 4932 East Colby St, Mesa, Az 85205  ALSO, please let Betty know the size and gender of the shoes by emailing her at blynn1@optonline.net… she will update and repost the current needs list.

If you prefer to make a cash donation, you can find use this link: http://zoeforkids.com/donate/  I will then send my ‘secret shoppers’ out to get the best shoe value for your donated dollars.

ZoeForKids donors are the best!  I can’t thank you all enough for your continued generosity.  100% of your donations directly improve the lives of now… 463 orphans who are loved by God and us.  Thank you for the opportunity of allowing me to be your eyes and ears during our parties with these dear ones… I wish you could all be there to experience their excitement.  While I get to play the role of ‘gift giver’ at these parties … I know, and I make sure our kids know, that YOU are the ones making the financial sacrifice for them, YOU are the great givers of these gifts!
