FERVENT RECORDS tween group PURENRG, along with representatives from WORD ENTERTAINMENT, FAMILY CHRISTIAN STORES, THE JAMES FUND and BACK2BACK MINISTRIES, recently returned from a missions trip to MONTEREY, MEXICO.
On the trip new shoes were donated to children as a result of the response to PURENRG's "THE REAL THING" album pre-sale through FAMILY CHRISTIAN STORES earlier this year. THE JAMES FUND, along with PAYLESS SHOE SOURCE, is coordinating the shoe distribution.
“The work of distributing the shoes was a huge blessing and very emotional for the team. We washed hundreds of precious feet, fitted the children for shoes, placed new socks on their feet, and then put new shoes on their feet. And really, that is what it was all about, showing the kids that they are loved, respected, and valued by JESUS," said FAMILY CHRISTIAN STORES Sr. VP/Human Resources and FAMILY CHRISTIAN STORES' THE JAMES FUND Pres. STEVE BIONDO.
