Walking the Walk

Today I received a long awaited package.  Recently I sent a shoe design to Converse and they have been brining my design to realityDSC03192.  One of the most amazing blessings in my life has been working on the mission field abroad.  These shoes are to honor Ghana which forever changed me and helped me so much in my walk with Jesus Christ.  These shoes have the Ghanaian colors and are custom labeled “Black Star” after the Ghanaian black starDSC03193.  It seems a fitting symbol to literally walk in these shoesDSC03194.  It’s not that I need a shoe to remind me of all Africa has done for meDSC03195but I found it a fitting (pun intended) tribute to a nation, people and continent that I can never thank enough.  Before I close I thank you personally Joseph Biasie (Bishop, Pastor, friend, Bros! and Black Eagle)!

    1. Nothing better than finding shoes you not only like but are comfortable. These are likely about as close to one of a kind as you can get. That's a bonus in my mind ;)
