"We're able to give kids in Iraq a new pair of shoes and also a Bible that's illustrated in their own language.  And, we get to tell them about Jesus. So, we use the shoes as a hook, but at the same time, what kid wouldn't like to receive a new pair of shoes," said the ministry's Jason Law.

A World Compassion team will head to Iraq next week to deliver another 9,500 shoes to children in need.
