Help us get More Books


Okay so I mentioned in a previous blog post a few days ago that I'd post again to let you know how YOU can help us keep the reading train and excitement moving at Casa Hogar Douglas. I've decided that these kids - all of them - will fall in love with reading if they can just get their hands on the right book. And this love of reading and the literacy skills that will follow is going to change their lives.

Here it is...

You can help us get more books by:
1. Praying that we'd be blessed with more fun titles in Spanish

2. Buy books online or in stores from my list below and fly them here on your next mission trip or send them with a friend coming down or send them to our home office

3. Send a check to the Back2Back home office in Ohio but do NOT write on the check memo line itself. Instead - send a separate piece of paper with a note asking for it to be used for books. Checks can be made out to "Back2Back Ministries" and mailed to: Back2Back Ministries PO Box 70 Mason, OH 45040. Contributions are accepted with the understanding that Back2Back has the control of donated funds.

Do you like to shop online on sites like amazon? I do. Sometimes, I want to add one more thing so I get free shipping. Perhaps, the next time you purchase something online - you'd consider adding one of these titles in Spanish and sending it to us to use with our kids at Casa Hogar Douglas.

Any books in Spanish are great but the titles below are on my wish list....

I'll work on this Caroline. I am an amazon prime person and can most often get free shipping. So let me know what comes in via donations and I can order for you and send them down via home office.
