Hi everybody, sorry for not posting in awhile. Alot has happened since the last time I posted. The first being my church's fall retreat. It was really fun and the camp was completely okay with me going barefoot. We got to hangout with Heartsong, and after the retreat they sent me a post card saying they were praying in support of 100 Days Without Shoes, so that was cool.
The next big thing that happened was, my sister talked to her school, and got them to do a flip-flop drive for the kids in Oditel. A big thanks to anybody that brought in shoes. We got several boxes full. The next thing that is coming up is this weekend. I will be going to Art Hop downtown Kalamazoo, to raise awareness and helpout at The River's site. So if you are going to Art Hop, you should find me, and if you aren't going, you should. It is a great way to support local artists and start your Christmas shopping.
Now that we got the bigger things out of the way I can talk about the smaller things. It is really cold out, but I'm just happy that it hasn't snowed like it said it was going to on the news. We are still getting donations every week, so Thank You everybody. The Uganda group bought plane tickets at the last meeting. so we are officially going now. Yay. Thanks again for all the prayers and donations.
What Am I Doing?
I (Tim Lotz) will be going to Uganda, Africa on January 4th, 2013. Before then I am going to try to raise money for shoes for the kids in Oditel (the village I am going to) because they don't have shoes to walk to school in and there are alot of foot infections. To do this I am going to get pledges for every day I go without shoes. My goal is 100 days. But you can help too. You can make a one time donation on this page. If you don't have that much money you can donate a used pair of flip-flops (flip-flops are best because they don't wear out as fast and they fit more sizes) I will be starting on September 1st. Wish me luck!
