June 5, 2020.
Hello friends and sponsors, and happy, happy, happy, June. Yeah, the sunshine is in full effect. We are very excited this year, in anticipation of the warm weather, and look forward to some of the COVID-19 restrictions being lifted. Our hope has been, with the warm weather now upon us, some of the germs causing the Corona Virus, will die off in the heat wave this year. However, things are improving, as of June 2020, 58,035 cases of COVID-19 in the state of Michigan, 38,000 confirmed recoveries, and 5,570 deaths. Although, the death toll is alarming, we are, ecstatic about the recovery numbers. The US numbers seem to be improving as well, in terms of the death to recovery ratios. As of June 4'Th, 2020 there have been 1,842,101 cases, and 107,029 deaths; and although 100 thousand deaths is more than we can bare, things do also seem to be slowing down in losses of lives, due to COVID-19. On to happier topics, gardening. With all of the quarantining that has been happening, some of our over the top beautiful gardens have been tossed to the side this year. I'm here to encourage you to plant anyway, although it is somewhat late in the season, as most of us start turning the soil over for fresh seed in April, no later than May. There are plenty of solutions to a late start, such as already potted flowers and fruits/vegetables, flowers or vegetables that are already seeded, and only require watering, as we see on plant and flower mats. Also, don't forget the indoor plant possibilities; which include kitchens, basements, and permanent and temporary green houses. Let's get our gardening on, Lord knows, we can use the welcomed distraction.
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; as our goal is to help as many as we can, while also continuing our building renovation project. Also, if you would like to send in your monthly tithes and offerings, or any donation, you may do so by following the instructions on the donations page. Finally, if you would like to join our ministry, please go to the contact page and follow the instructions. Praise The Lord. Our scripture reading for the month of June, comes from the book of Ezekiel, chapter 47, verse 12, which says: "Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear fruit, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing." Remember, this year; gardening, and the planting of trees, fruits/vegetables, and flowers, are the answer to our healing. Praise The Lord.
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
