ASHLAND, Ky. – The 11-member Amy For Africa Team that will be traveling to Moyo, Uganda in May for the Samaritan’s Feet shoe project is set.
AFA co-founders Amy Compston and Mark Maynard will lead the team along with Floyd Paris, the president of United Christian Expeditions (UCE). The trip will be May 17-June 2.
Others making up the AFA Team are: Chris Compston (Amy’s husband), Kathy Whitely (Amy’s mother), Maggie Lawentmann, Shannon Luther, videographer Rob Barber, Rob VanHoose, Jonathan VanHoose, Amy Blankenbeckley, and Tony Blankenbeckley.
The goal will be to put 26,000 pairs of shoes on the children of Moyo. The AFA Team, through the efforts of Bro.
