Our St. John’s story… Books and Bricks started as  a church mission of St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church in West Seattle.  St. John has been involved in Mulundi Village since 2004 with the construction of St. James Batavia Anglican Church in Kitui Diocese, Anglican Church of Kenya.  At St. John we hold fundraising events and informational events to raise money for scholarships, school supplies (books, pens, pencils) and school building projects. We believe that Our common life depends on each other’s toil. Book of Common Prayer, Pg. 134
