Sole Searching at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church

 

Mt. Calvary Baptist Church in Lanham, MD along with surrounding Baptist Churches in the area are coming together to "share a sole" or 30,000. Their shoe drive started  August 7th and ends August 28th to raise money to build a well in East Africa.

“The reason we chose East Africa was because we have been going there on mission trips to run medical clinics for six years. In July our clinic treated over 1,500 patients, so our Church is very familiar with the area and know how much they need clean water, ” explained Mt. Calvary Baptist Church’s Pastor Charles Cato.

After collecting 30,000 shoes, a man named George Hutchings aka “The Shoe Man,” will take the shoes and sell them for 50 cents to countries in need. Through this he will accumulate 15,000 dollars in order to drill a hole for a well.
