The “Happy Soles Project” ministry of the Happy Church in Jackson, Kentucky provides shoes for children every year prior to the start of the school year. This year, we also provided coats and full zipper fleece and fur lined “hoodies” for many of our children as well.
This ministry exists almost entirely of outside donations. The young teens of Hope Church of Mason, Ohio helped us with the largest “shoe day” as well as former freestyle motocross competitor, Justin Newman.
Meeting physical needs is a great way to earn the right to reveal a spiritual one while doing what our Lord expects. Matthew 25:40 (NIV) “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
