got shoes?

I am Jim Walling the Pastor at Parkway UMC. This is an eclectic, expanding and Spirit following church community. To prove that to you, we want your shoes?!?

We are part of a ministry that collects old/used shoes and redistributes them to start up entrepreneurs in Third World countries. Those entrepreneurs will refurbish the shoes, if necessary and then sell them. As a collection point for the shoes Parkway will receive monies for each pound of shoes.

In the beginning these monies will be dedicated to a solar water system to run our ministries ... an outdoor shower, open from 6am to 8pm seven days a week, for our local homeless folks, the working poor of our neighborhood, or anybody who needs a hot shower. We also need hot water for washing dishes ... we prepare two "Holy Meals" each week, Wednesday night, 5:00-6:30 pm and Sunday Mornings, 9-10am for anyone who is hungry.

So, we need lots of hot water and need your shoes!

God Bless. Grace and Peace,
Pastor Jim
