September 5, 2017
Hello loyal sponsors, happy September. With that being said, we here at The Shoes Saves Foundation, hope you had a wonderful Labor Day and Labor Day weekend. We had lots going on in the community over the holiday weekend, including the Polish Day Parade in Hamtramck, Michigan. If you’re a Local Yocal, you know Hamtramck borders Detroit, but for all the non- local folks Hamtramck, also known as Pol Town, and is a local favorite for local Metro Detroiters, and travelers alike. Hamtramck, famous for its wonderful shops which consists of many fresh meat shops and clothing stores, now has taken on a different cultural look. The Hamtramck area has experienced a large Arabic influence and has been, welcoming to various cultures in the Arabic speaking community. Hats off to Hamtramck for its timeless tradition continued in the Hamtramck Parade. Of course Arts, Beats, and Eats in the Royal Oak Michigan area, the Jazz Festival in Downtown Detroit, and The Michigan State Fair in the Novi Michigan area, are an always must attend, as well. So, as usual; a ton of good things going on to kick off the month of September. To keep the good momentum going, the 2017/2018 school season is upon us, and our kids are heading back in for another fabulous school year. That means, sales in all the major shopping venues, and time for parents to exhale during the day. We welcome the new school year & season, and would like to send a special thanks to all the teachers in the Michigan area, and nationwide. God Bless America, God Bless the American Teacher, and God Bless Farmers. God Bless America is obvious, and teachers; an obvoius no brainer, but why farmers? The answer is: kids must eat lunch in school, and that means, we as parents can get dinner done by 6 pm or 7 pm each day, and not at 2 pm, 3 pm or 4 pm; so thank God for those who cultivate food in the USA; whether livestock or vegetation. Hallelujah, thank The Lord in Heaven above. We clearly love farmers at The Shoes Saves Foundation. Next on our list; the month of October is Octoberfest. For more information about Octoberfest 2017, please visit the Community Tab, or the Current Events Tab on this site. Praise The Lord!!
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 September comes from the book of Luke chapter 4, verse 18 -19, which says: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor." Don’t forget the Lord has helped you, so help someone else today.

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.
