I almost forgot about the Shoe Outreach that happened last week. It's one of the funnest events we do. There is a neighborhood here in Wasilla that our church has adopted, and every year in the spring we buy shoes for all the children. We pick them up on a Sunday and bring them to the church for a great Children's Church. Then we feed them lunch and take them to Payless Shoes, where they get to pick out a new pair of shoes. It's so awesome to see how excited they are!

In addition to the shoes, we do complete Thanksgiving Dinners, a Candy Blast, free coats, and Christmas gifts. Before we started, the State Troopers tell us that they would receive 3-5 calls a night. After three years of showing God's love, the Troopers tell us they only receive 2 to 3 calls a week.
If every church in America would pick an area, and show God's love to the people, we would live in a very different world!
