Hello friends and sponsors. What a beautiful summer we've had, thus far this year. We’re not the only ones, who has noticed either, as everywhere we go; people mention how wonderful the weather has been, so far. We love chatting with people about how the community garden has flourished, as well. So far, this summer, it has been a constant flow of; momentum around building repairs, and people inquiring about what’s happening next in community. We are of course gearing up for Octoberfest 2017, and promoting this year’s theme, which is “So Let Your Light Shine”. When we join together as a community, we have such a powerful impact on change. Of course October is quite a few months away, but; now is a good time to start thinking about what you and your own family can do to join in our efforts. Octoberfest is about celebrating the community and being an advocate for all to be safe and aware throughout the month of October and all year long. Octoberfest means doing our best this Octoberfest 2017 to keep our thoughts on what Octoberfest truly stands for. So remember; and don't forget, about Octoberfest 2017: This October 1 through 31 is Octoberfest. Octoberfest focuses on community, and has a specific theme this year of "So Let Your Light Shine". We, the Shoes Saves Foundation staff, management, and sponsors, want to encourage our neighbors and community to remember to look out for the safety of all those around us in the community this October, and all year long. This means, watching out for the kids who walk by in the morning going to the bus stop, or helping an elderly neighbor cross the street. Remember to watch out for all unoccupied houses during the Halloween/Angels Night season as well. When we help each other; the community grows and flourishes. At the end of Octoberfest; we end the month with a celebration of nature’s goodness for the season changes, as fall has begun. Remember our community focus of "So Let Your Light Shine, and together we can make a difference.
Don’t forget to keep us in prayer, at The Shoes Saves Foundation; as prayer does truly change things. Also, don’t forget to send in your much needed donations, as so many depend on them; and our goal is to help as many as we can, while also continuing our building renovation project. Our scripture reading for the month of August comes from the book of Matthew chapter 5, verse 16, which says: “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Don’t forget the Lord has put us here to glorify him. Praise The Lord.

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.
