According to Thomson, Buckner’s “Shoes for Orphan Souls” program will be discussed in the Saturday interview.   Thomson added, “Shoes for Orphan Souls is how I first became aware of Buckner International over 10 years ago.   It is amazing to see how the gift of a pair of shoes can change a person’s life.   This is an amazing ministry outreach.”
