Fourteen men, the majority of whom are firefighters from the Hoover, Vestavia Hills and Calera fire departments, traveled to Costa Rica in late October with Happy Feet International of Gardendale to deliver shoes and share the gospel through servant evangelism.
Representing First Baptist Church, Hayden; The Church at Brook Hills, Birmingham; NorthPark Baptist Church, Trussville; and West University Baptist Church, Houston, the team visited villages along the Colorado and San Juan rivers, washed the feet of children and their families and gave them shoes.
The team took about 1,000 shoes to give away, and more than 1,000 people made decisions during the week. Missionaries said 20 years ago, these same villages had rejected Christ. (TAB)
