Foot Washing Mission

The AIDS Orphan Rescue units are small portable buildings set up near the orphans’ own villages in Malawi, Zambie and Cameroon, Africa. There participants wash the feet of impoverished children and present them with new socks and new shoes. Wearing new socks and new shoes allows children to go to schools. Children without socks and shoes are not permitted to attend because of the potential to spread blood borne infection through open cuts and scrapes caused by walking on their bare feet. The socks and shoes are donated to Teen Missions by individuals, groups and organizations from across North America. The young missionaries on their way to the rescue units cram their luggage full of socks and shoe donations.

What a beautiful gesture to show God's love! Is it possible for those who can't go there to donate socks and shoes?
