Forty Days of Kindness- Day 15

Today I started a box. Some dear friends of ours have hearts for Honduras. Eric takes several trips out there a year to work and minister to the people. He is visiting again in July and has sent out a list of things he needs. I started a box and have begun looking around for the things I might have around my house (and things I might see out shopping). I have old cell phones and hair ribbons. If you would like to get in on this act of kindness, I am listing the needs below. They need to be turned in by June 1st. You can drop yours off here if you like.

God's kindness leads us repentance. Romans 2:4

NEEDS FOR THIS TRIP TO HONDURAS

We want to bring kids pairs of soccer shoes to the village of El Plan.  If you can get any soccer shoes donated or purchase them if you would like please do so this would be a great blessing.  We will take any size we can get.  All of the things listed below as well as all shoes and clothing will be needed.  If you have any solar equipment it would be very useful to the Hondurans because they have no power!  Here are a few more things that can be used and are needed.
