SPOONER, Wis. -- In March we kicked off a Global Missions project with Brittany Gormong. Brittany has been in La Gonave, Haiti since September of 2017.
Her main jobs there are to teach missionary children and an English class for Haitian children. We asked Brittany if we could team up with her to help bring more books to schools in Haiti through their Donkey Library program.
What is a Donkey Library you ask?
Brittany, her friend Nancy, and a team of people in Haiti deliver books by donkey down a mountain to Bois Chandel School. Students in the school exchange books each time they come with new books. Brittany was very excited for us to team up with the Donkey Library. Our kids designed jars to keep in our Kids Alive classrooms.
Kids Alive kids and staff members collected coins during the month of March and collected $606.25!
Brittany and Nancy were amazed at the amount we raised and are excited that this money could possibly help the team take books to additional schools as well as buy many more books!
We are thankful that we could share God’s love in this way, globally! If anyone would like to contribute more to the Donkey Library, send any amount to Spooner Wesleyan Church, care of Kids Alive Donkey Library.
Thanks, Melissa Smith & Kevin Morse (Kids Alive co-directors)
