Lending Library Started!
June 12, 2015

I do not know where to begin thanking you for the shipment of books that were sent to us! We received 7 parcels all in very good condition. I had not heard from you after my letter in March and had all but given up hopes of hearing from you again. When I got to the Post Office and was told there were 7 parcels for us, I was so excited.  The teachers thought it was Christmas!!We started a teacher’s lending library at the school earlier this year. We only had about 25 books in total until your shipment arrived!! The teachers were so hungry for new literature they booked out about thirty books between 5 staff!! We have a very strict reading program at the school and our 210 learners from grade R to grade 7 have read approximately 2000 books this year. We have about 100 Abeka reading books that we use on rotational bases. We also have other reading books that also go out on rotational bases. The new children’s books came as a breath of fresh air to these anxious readers. So from the bottom of our hearts we thank you!!  God continue to use you in the ministry He has called you to.
