YOUR BOOKS ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN COSTA RICA

Thanks to all who donated books for Costa Rican English students. They will be reading them for enjoyment and to improve their English skills, which will give them an edge as they move forward into jobs or higher education.

“Tell all the people at your church that we really appreciate what they are doing for us. It’s so good to know that people like you think of us and keep helping us.” commented their teacher.

It’s clear that the students and their teacher appreciate not only the books but our moral support. The students attend the school on one-year scholarships after finishing high school. Improving their English is an important goal during this time.

Members of the church who go on mission trips to Los Chiles, Costa Rica for Agua Viva Serves have an opportunity to work in class with students and practice English conversation. The books you donated have made a difference!
