This past summer their Life Group held a yard sale to raise money to support the efforts of digging water wells or supplying villages with LIFE Filter Kits. An Embers Life Group member stated, “Our group and ministry realized that water is something that we can’t live without, but yet we often take it for granted.” Embers Life Group raised $1,300 for Water for LIFE and we are so grateful for their hard work and generous support!

Gentle Shepherd Fellowship – White Hall, IL

Pastor John McCorkle and his church Gentle Shepherd Fellowship gave shoes from LIFE Outreach International to an orphanage in Romania. They provided socks to go along with the shoes they sent. The church processed shipping on October 13th and they were told that it would take 1 to 2 months to arrive in Romania. Pastor John received a message from the missionaries Ruben and Karen in early December asking for prayer that the shoes would arrive quickly because they were taking Christmas presents to the children in the town of Pesac in the next few days. Karen said, “It would take a miracle.” The church immediately put the request out to their prayer chain. On December 12th, Pastor John received the message from the missionaries that the packages arrived! Pastor John said it best, “What a mighty God we serve!!”

At LIFE Outreach International we are so grateful for our amazing church partners that help share the love of Jesus in Word and Deed! Not only were Ruben and Karen able to help give children shoes, but they also currently have 17 children that live in their orphanage. Their heart is to raise the children to be strong men and woman of God. We are so grateful for those who are serving Christ around the world! Below are photos of children receiving shoes in Pesac, Romania.

Every year our congregation brings in jars of coins they have saved throughout the year to give to the Sunday school for a mission project. We count the coins and have fun guessing ‘how much’! This year we read about your shoe project and the whole congregation (approx. 100) got behind the outreach. Our “Penny Drive” had the highest total to date!! $673.20 for 187 pair of shoes!!! Praise God, we are delighted to send this change to you and thank you for this vision to bring smiles to many children with love in Christ.

Ryan said, “I was watching TV one day at night and I was going to bed and I saw them eating dirt. At first I had $25.00 and then I wanted to send it to Africa.” Ryan’s Dad said, God grabbed that money and multiplied it and Ryan was able to feed a lot of kids with that money and I’m just thankful that God is working in my son.”

Pastor Dennis Smith, Trinity Family Fellowship Church, Yakima, Washington, said, “Ryan has this heart for helping people.”

That night at church, after Ryan shared his vision of sending money to Africa to feed the children, he was able to give a $1,000 donation to Mission Feeding.

Tulia Christian Fellowship – Tulia, TX

Tulia Christian Fellowship, Tulia, TX – Pastor Rusty Gray states, “I pastor a great group of people in rural West Texas. Our church, Tulia Christian Fellowship is in Tulia, TX. We have been struggling with drought for several years here in the panhandle. We have been praying and trusting God for rain along the way, we have never lost hope or our faith in God’s goodness. A few months ago God laid it on our hearts to raise $5,000.00 to drill a well. We wanted the help others have clean water and hear the gospel. We stood on Proverbs 11:25 – that as we water others we will be watered also.

Since that Sunday six weeks ago we have raised the money for the well, and it has not stopped raining! It is pouring outside right now as I write this letter. Many of our areas have had over 10 inches of rain. All the weather forecasters say the drought in our area is over! We thank God for the rain and for answered prayer.

New Life Church – Canton, PA

When children at New Life Church in Canton, Pennsylvania, heard that children in Nicaragua had never owned a pair of shoes, they wanted to help. Soon, they began raising money to send to LIFE’s Christmas Shoe Project – not just asking their parents for the money, but earning it or giving from their own piggy banks. They set a goal to raise enough money for 56 pairs of new shoes. Their teacher, Marilyn, said her students asked if their gift of shoes could help children Nicaragua, and we were happy to say yes. When the children completed their giving campaign for LIFE’s Christmas Shoe Project their efforts helped send a total of 300 pairs of shoes – far beyond what they could have anticipated!
