In His Shoes is an organization which rallies support for those who suffer in the world. 
In His Shoes was created in response to acts of Genocide perpetrated against the Armenian nation in 1915.
We believe those who have suffered evil have a unique responsibility to take action against injustice to others.
Our actions are based on Christ’s principles of love, compassion and repaying evil with good.

In His Shoes went HUNGRY on April 24

Famine group outside church
For 30 hours, beginning at 7AM, Saturday, April 24 and concluding 30 hours later by breaking their fast with Holy Communion on Sunday, April 25, a group of 26 people prayed, discussed, watched films, and participated in creative activities all on an empty stomach. The goal: To raise money and awareness for the refugees of Darfur and for the 24,000 children who die from hunger and hunger related causes every day.
30 Hour Famine participantsAs part of In His Shoes' mission, the 30 Hour Famine allows participants to answer horrendous acts of evil, such as genocide with acts of love and compassion. Over $25,000 for hunger relief was collected (final tally pending).
Sunday morning, a group called Survivor's Walk led by Rev. Fr. Avedis Abovian joined in the celebration Mass (Badarak) at the St. Peter Armenian Church Youth Ministries' Center. His Eminence the Primate, ABP Hovnan Derderian presided and commended the fasters and the walkers for their sacrifice and commitment to Genocide commemoration in a positive light.
