Blessings Distributed! Thank you!
When CCI asked for Zapatos (shoes), you responded in a BIG way! CCI, and truly the children of Guatemala and the Democratic Republic of Congo (as well as Ethiopia), have been blessed by the outpouring of love from you!
CCI's humanitarian aid director and another employee traveled to Guatemala January 2-9 to distribute shoes, bring the children to the amusement park for their Christmas outing and provide training (with another organization) to the children on appropriate vs. inappropriate touch to prevent child abuse.
CCI is happy to report that all of the children were provided with shoes their size, and there were even some left over for new children or new growth! To see the joy on the kids' faces, watch the trip video by clicking the picture below:
Featured Ministry: Show Hope
Show Hope. What name could be better for an orphan ministry than a directive like Show Hope?
Started in 2003 by contemporary Christian artist Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife, Mary Beth, then Shaohannah's Hope was originally a means of helping families overcome the financial barriers to adoption. While providing adoption grants is still a large part of Show Hope's ministry, Show Hope is much more than a grant agency today: they truly are a ministry of hope to the millions of orphaned children in this world.
