Shoes Saves Foundation Newsletter
June 5, 2017
Hello friends and sponsors, summer is almost here again, as the first official day of summer is June 21, 2017. With that said, there is so much to talk about; I am so excited, I hardly know where to begin. Lets’ start our conversation, with some information about Detroit’s new QLine. Of course the QLine is the new street car transit service, which runs from downtown Detroit to Detroit’s New Center Area. I recently rode on the new street car, I found it to be fast, convenient, and clean. The QLine is also very affordable, with fares starting at .75 cents for seniors, $1.50 for 3 hours, $3.00 for the day, $30.00 for the month, and $285.00 for an annual pass. The QLine runs down Woodward Avenue, and has hours of operation that fit all life styles from downtown to midtown (also known as The New Center Area). The QLine Schedule is as following: Monday through Thursday: 6 a.m. to 11 p.m, Friday: 6 a.m. to Midnight, Saturday: 8 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The QLine was a very pleasant experience for me, and I recommend it to anyone in the downtown area, who is traveling from Downtown Detroit to Detroit’s New Center Area or vise versa. The next point of discussion is our own Osborn Community, which is a part of district 3. I recently had a wonderful discussion with an Osborn Community resident, who has been boarding up, unoccupied houses on his block. He informed me, he contacted The City of Detroit, and they provided him the boards for free. I noticed the boards were up a few days ago, and boy oh boy; his block is looking good. If you are interested in helping to board a house in district three, please contact the office of Scott Benson (The District 3 City Council Representative: 313-224-3443) and they will further direct you. Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention The Book of Shine is out, and it is for purchase. The Book of Shine is available on this website under the Store Tab. The purchase price for The Book of Shine is $31.95. In addition, any donation made to the Shoes Saves Foundation in the amount of $300.00 or more, you will receive a free copy of The Book of Shine. The Reverend Joi Karla Hubert is the author of The Book of Shine, and is dedicated to remembering those in the community, as The Lord has consecrated her with gift in song, ministry, and writing.
Finally, don’t forget to send in your much needed monthly donations. So many depend on your generosity. If you would like to make a donation, please feel to do so by selecting the donations tab at the top of the page. Remember to be faithful, as The Lord will consecrate you, by which he will prepare you, and never forget you. As The Lord, never forgets us, we must remember others with our giving's as well. Our scripture reading for the month of June comes from the book of 2 Chronicles, chapter 31, and verse 18, which says: “They included all the little ones, the wives, and the sons and daughters of the whole community listed in these genealogical records. For they were faithful in consecrating themselves.”

With the love of Christ, remember God is Good.
Recite Joi's Prayer below for those who love to pray their own way through any situation:
Lord Elohim, help us through this time and bring us to our correct and rightful place. Remove all demonic forces from around us and those who heed their call. You are righteous and just, and a guiding force through darkness. We also ask you to cleanse and purify all that we eat and drink, on a daily basis. Lord God of all the heavens and earth, I believe in my heart that Jesus is the son of God, and confess with my own mouth: Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. Jehovah God, you answer the prayers of those who ask and call on you in the name of the Messiah. Bless us with right standing Lord, bless us with health and strength Lord, and help us meet all requirements of our own daily existence. Shine us up Lord, and remember us Lord, and take us on wings of glory where we should go, stay and remain; in Jesus name Ben Elohim Al Akbar. Amen and Amen.
