Taylor Smith here, I just wanted to share a quick story about our Happy Feet production today at the church in the village of San Pedro. There I met a boy on Tuesday during VBS who stole my heart. His name is Francisco and he is about 2 years old. He is deaf along with his two sisters and is unable to speak. But the way God smiles through him just captures my soul. Today he came in and sat in the chair, waiting for someone to give him some shoes. I went to find him his size but all of the boys shoes were gone. I tried to give him a pair of girl shoes but they were too small. Proabably since I was biased, I especially wanted Francisco to walk away with some new shoes. I went back to the chaos of the shoe piles, and I prayed to God that Francisco would have some shoes that fit him. Only two seconds later I came across two flip flops with backs on them for boys. They fit perfectly. I was praising Jesus! I saw him take his shoes, and out of the corner of my eye I saw him use the shoes for a pillow as he laid down on the floor. I accidentally saw him quickly kiss his shoes and lay his head back on them. God´s grace was screaming to me in that moment, and it almost brought me to tears. Their appreciation for a new pair of used shoes has inspired me and I thank God for every blessing He provides for me. We take so much for granted and it´s amazing how one moment can change your life so much. ¡Jesuscristo te amas!
