August is an exciting month here at Buckner! There is a tangible outpouring of Christ’s love during our annual Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls drive.
We are working hard to collect and provide new shoes for hundreds of thousands of orphans and vulnerable children. Shoes matter to these children. They provide access to education, protect against disease, and serve as a tangible reminder of Christ’s love by showing that someone cares.
To kick off the month, we have launched an online pledge. This pledge is a way for you to show your commitment to protecting children in need and to lift up the Fatherless. Here are three ways you can live out your pledge:
•Pray – And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. – Ephesians 6:18
•Act – Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress… – James 1:27
•Give – We must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ – Acts 20:35
Additionally, my team at Buckner has put together a free devotional, Father to the Fatherless. This seven-day prayer and devotional guide will help you take the first step in living out your scriptural calling.
Please take a minute to sign the pledge and get your own copy of the seven-day devotional. You can help us kick off what we hope will be our most successful Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls drive! You can make a difference in a child’s life today.
