Saint John’s church believes deeply in outreach and every year gives half of the offering collected on Christmas to outreach ministries. This year Books and Bricks was one of the beneficiaries. We are deeply thankful, because of these funds we were able to add one scholarship student and will be able to purchase books for the library during the up-coming trip to Kenya. By purchasing the books in Kenya we will be able to solicit input from Pius, the librarian, about which books he feels would be most beneficial and to purchase novels and other material in Swahili. While several suitcases of books in English will be hauled over many people in the community do not read English well so it will be nice to be able to provide reading material in Swahili.
