This year Koh Samui International church launched a project called the “Barefoot Challenge”. The purpose of the project was to make others aware of those who don’t have and can’t afford shoes around the world. International Barefoot day was held on the 1st of June when people around the world went barefoot for the day in order to raise awareness.
Koh Samui international Church – Friend of God decided to take it a step further and they raised funds to help the kids on Koh Samui that can’t afford school shoes. The word spread really quick and a request came from a school in Koh Phangan for some school shoes, thus the project went further than just Koh Samui.
The first bunch of shoes were handed out on Koh Phangan at a school located at Ban Tai. The kids really needed new shoes!!!
The second bunch of shoes were handed out last week at a school located at Taling Ngam on koh Samui in association with Pastor Tom and Anne from Yewon Church Koh Samui. Yewon Church is a local Thai church that reaches out to the local Thai community. At the school in Taling Ngam Koh Samui International Church gave out almost 200 pairs of shoes.
In total the church managed to give out almost 260 pairs of shoes.
The church’s core values are to be 1. Christ Centered. 2. Going Global (Reaching out to all nationalities and people groups. 3. Consciously Caring. 4. Generous in Giving. 5. Creative and 6. Unusually Good.
Koh Samui International Church – Friend of God would like to thank every person that made a donation in order to make this project a success.
The project will take place again in 2017.
Koh Samui International Church, is open to everybody, and the Sunday services take place at the Ibis Hotel in Bophut at 14:00.
