Christmas Shoe Parties

Changing lives with one simple message:

You are not alone.

Sponsor an Orphanage Christmas Party!

High in the Andes Mountains, lies the

city of Quito, where orphans and

children in extreme poverty are in high

numbers.

 

Their futures are minimized by lack of education, nutrition, and the love of a family. In our community centers, they come in droves to be fed. Most of them eat the chicken leg we give them down to the last morsel, and stuff the bone that is left in their pocket to take home to make a soup.

 

In the orphanages where we serve, we visit them to bring love and a special meal. They long for connection, time, and attention. Their hearts are literally “love-starved." We play together. We dance and learn new games. We color pictures. Every child belongs. And when their bellies are full, their hearts can be open. Doubts of love can fade away. Ears can hear. So, we open the Word. We worship. We pray. We speak the name of Jesus. And we teach them that in the Kingdom of God, the last are first.

 

He said "let the little ones come to me." And they do.

 

Could you, just for a moment, “put yourself in the shoes” of one of these small children growing up in these conditions. Unable to afford local transportation, if it is even available, you walk great distances each day to school, church, or the local store. The streets are littered with broken beer bottles, rotting trash, and animal excrements. Your soles have worn out and the stitching is broken. Your socks wore thin long ago, and your toes peek through the holes at the end of your shoe. Your brother helped you cut a hole where your toes peek out, so that your toes have a place to go, and the blisters will begin to go away.

 

Where these feet tread, shoes are not just a need, they are a luxury they simply cannot afford. Socks are like a warm hug to dry, cracked, and cold skin. This Christmas season, we really need your help...

 

For nearly a decade, we have provided shoes for the children we serve. Every year, children need new shoes. It’s not just a want. It’s a true need. Would you consider "adopting" one of our ministry sites, to cover the cost of shoes, socks and a nice meal? You could be the answer to the prayers of these children.

 

If you have children, you know they grow out of shoes so quickly. Orphans and children in poverty are no exception. Toes are poking through the shoes we gave out last Christmas. For some, it's the only pair they own.

Can you help?

 

SHOES are an incredible blessing to the 100’s of marginalized children we serve here in Ecuador. This Christmas, your gift will provide a child with a well-made pair of shoes, a pair of socks, and a Christmas dinner. Your church, family or small group can commit to providing shoes for an entire orphanage or community center of 30 to 280 kids.

 

Every donation makes a lasting impact on the daily life of children in Ecuador!

We hope to prevent abandonment due to poverty. This is done by strengthening the family unit in impoverished areas where abandonment is highly possible.

Where abandonment has already occurred, we work to see these children feel loved and made to feel safe in every aspect of life. We help orphanages to provide for the needs of every resident. Where adoption is possible, we advocate for healthy placements .
