Joplin Shopping Trip 8-20-11

Oh what fun we had on our Joplin Walmart Shopping trip on 8.20.11. We all met at Abundant Life Christian Center and caravanned to

Walmart. Heart 4 Children Ministries had gotten sponsors for 25 children through the Lord’s leading, but we weren’t the only ones that went shopping. Brent, Tara & Doris Daugherty of 3 Nails Disaster Volunteers decided to sponsor 3 children who did not have sponsors–in all 28 children marched on the Joplin Walmart on Saturday at 10am.

Brent videoed our shopping experience and one of the parents took still shots. It was so much fun to watch the children being able to pick out clothes that they like. Each child got a new pair of athletic shoes, a package of underwear, a package of socks and a new outfit. We were so blessed to have gotten sponsors for the 25 children and to have the Daugherty’s sponsor the three that lost their sponsors.

This was our first trip to Joplin. Two of the families could not make the 10 o’clock shopping trip but we were able to take the young 3 year old girl shopping that night. The other family was not able to so we went back later to take them shopping.
