It is truly inspiring to volunteer with the Shupes at Mission in Motion. They have the biggest hearts, unstoppable drive and motivation, and a deep love for Jesus. I am blessed to have met them.

Missions In Motion is such a beautiful and well run organization. This is our third year participating in The Day Of Hope event in Hamilton and our team looks forward to it every year. Cathy Shupe and her team are so professional and caring!

I helped Missions in Motion collect shoes and socks for their recent trip to Honduras to distribute them. We are so blessed to live here in the US where simple things like shoes are so abundant. The cool thing the folks who went to Honduras to distribute the shoes did to the recipients prior to giving someone a pair of shoes and socks was to wash their feet, much like Jesus did. They are true servants of God!

I really enjoy volunteering for Missions In Motion's SHOES for H.O.P.E program because I get an opportunity to help other people in foreign countries have a better quality of life with gently used or new shoes. It's really awesome to be involved with an organization that makes such a difference for others who need shoes. Before volunteering sorting and bagging shoes for the Shoes for H.O.P.E program, I didn't realize how many people were going without shoes and how great the need is. It's been such a blessing to help serve in such a caring organization!

I have been a part of Missions In Motion International Ministries since 2012. I have really enjoyed being a part of this organization. Missions in Motion does a lot to support International ministries and local ministries too. The organization is about being the hands and feet of Christ and helping those in need so they can see and feel the love of Christ.

God has allowed me to be involved with this awesome organization and I'm so thankful for that. 2 things that sets Missions in Motions apart from other organizations is their integrity & the fact that family's with really little children can do things with them. Those 2 things are something you don't find everyday in an organization.

Missions in Motion has such a sweet heart for the people in our community. They've committed their days to help and think of others before themselves. We are privileged to partner with them by collecting shoes and helping with events like "A Day of H.O.P.E." They are making a difference. (:

I have been privileged to serve with Missions in Motion International Ministries (MIM) programs such as "Shoes for H.O.P.E." and "Day of H.O.P.E." The shoe program helps conserve resources and serves the underprivileged in Haiti, who are now able to protect their feet through shoe donations here in the U.S.

The "Day of H.O.P.E." truly helps brighten the lives of low income and homeless in the greater Hamilton, OH area by providing food, haircuts, health screenings, and many other valuable resources for them. It was exciting to be a part of a celebration for these people groups. Helping people understand that they are significant through the "Day of H.O.P.E." is a critical component of lifting them out of their circumstances. Along with caring for people, it was good to see that MIM is caring for the earth through recycling at the "Day of H.O.P.E." event.

I was able to work with some of the staff and leaders of Missions in Motion when they served with Samaritan's Purse, rebuilding homes in central Arkansas. As the construction supervisor for the site, they were a joy and blessing to work with. They lifted my spirit and brought encouragement and blessing to the entire team that week. They served with excellence and were a determining factor in earning the "best finished home" tagline.

I would encourage anyone to work with Missions in Motion as they seek to share the hope and joy found only in Jesus Christ!

West Chester Academy has absolutely loved partnering with Missions in Motion to be a shoe drop off location for Shoes for H.O.P.E. What began as a single, month long shoe drive at our location, has grown into a permanent shoe drop spot for our families and the greater West Chester community. We love supporting this wonderful organization, and appreciate the opportunity to serve our local and international communities through Mission In Motion's meaningful, impactful work. Thank you for all your are doing, and for inviting us to be part of your outreach!

Before my affiliation with Missions In Motion, I very rarely participated in any kind of missions work or outreach because it seemed too difficult and out of reach. After all, missions work is something trained, educated, and adventurous people go do, right? I wasn’t qualified like a trained missionary working in a foreign mission field. However, as a follower of Jesus Christ, missions is exactly what I’m called to do. This is where being a part of Missions In Motion has been such a blessing and eye opening experience for me personally. The organization helped me to put my faith into action and get involved in local, domestic, and international short term mission work and disaster relief. It has been greatly rewarding in terms of not only reaching others for Jesus Christ and making a positive impact in the lives of others, but also in building good friendships with the Missions in Motion team. As a Board Member, I’ve had the privilege of working with a very loving, compassionate, and dedicated team of people collecting shoes for people in other countries that don’t have access to shoes, serving meals to the homeless at the “A Day of H.O.P.E. Homeless Outreach”, and doing disaster relief. I want to continue in that mission to help others make a positive impact and put their faith to work by being involved in missions.

The Fairfield Kiwanis partnered up with Cathy Shupe and her team at Missions
in Motion and their Shoes for H.O.P.E. initiative several years ago. It
was such a great organization that the regional Kiwanis voted to take it on
as their annual project. Frank’s Glass in Fairfield is a drop off location
for the shoes. The community has rallied around this great cause and many
local resident’s and church congregations collect shoes to donate so the
impoverished people in third world countries have shoes to help prevent the
hardship and life-threatening symptoms caused by parasitic infection and
soil transmitted diseases. Thanks to Cathy and her team for all their hard
work and their commitment to helping make our world a better place to live!!

The purpose of this organization is to remove the barriers that keep people from going outside the four walls of the church to serve those who are in need. Some people think that they can't serve in the mission field because they have small children, or because they don't like to fly, or because they don't have the financial resources; but Missions In Motion provides ministry opportunities for all ages, serving in the local community, throughout the United States, and in various foreign countries. They will answer any questions that you have, and will take care of all the details. These folks prove that you can have a lot of fun, while making a positive spiritual and physical impact in the lives of others, all for the glory of God!

Shoes for HOPE WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR THE COMMUNITY OF Anderson County. Everyone was so involved in the effort to collect Shoes and help packaging. The best part was seeing the youth in the community come together to benefit others by volunteering their time.
As a result of the shoe drive we helped others, and were able to feed students at the middle school as a reward for there efforts as well as a ice-cream party for the preschool
And elementary students that were involved. We had the support of the entire community and our high school senior students were able to receive gift baskets for college as part of their reward for making the shoe drive a success. Shoes for Hope was definitely a life changer for all those involved.
