Join Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls and Air1 Radio in Mexico City this December 6-11 as we give health, hope, and education to orphans and children in need through the gift of new shoes – just in time for Christmas!
“This boy whose feet I was washing is not only an orphan, but an orphan with disabilities. He has been completely rejected and cast aside by this world and by his own family. Suddenly it hit me that this boy is going to be chosen to be first in the kingdom of heaven, and I realized what an honor it was to sit on my knees before him and serve him by washing his feet. Instead of rushing through it like I may have done before, I started washing every inch of his feet and made sure to clean each little toe.” Amy Kraus, shoe trip volunteer
While in Mexico City, you will spend your time visiting children in orphanages and our Buckner Family Hope Centers. In addition to giving each child a brand new pair of shoes, you will also share the Gospel with children through Bible stories, crafts, worship and more.
