New shoes for Christmas!

Today, the visiting team from the Monroe Church of God in Monroe, GA, took all of Casa Shalom's children to a local Payless shoe store to purchase 2 pairs of shoes each! Each child and teen received one pair of tennis shoes and one pair of formal black dress shoes, which are a required part of the children's school uniform. Check out all the photos of the fun excursion below!
