Dear GAs of Lexington Avenue Baptist Church,

Today we received the wonderful box of books for our children in Helena! How much fun! These very books will allow children to travel to so many places in their imaginations. Thank you for helping them to fall in love with reading.

We will love and have the joy of handing them out and reading from them!

Thank you for your gift.

Don’t forget to be a blessing where God has planted each one of you! Share God’s love and care with one another and the poor in your neighborhood. There are gifted children around you that also need the blessing of a reading buddie! Be a blessing.

In His Service,
Leonora Newell

Our GAs collected books and sent them to the ministry in Helena, Arkansas after studying about the Newells in GAs. Like Kentucky’s Mountain Hope, Helena, Arkansas is one of the 20 poorest counties in the United States and is a part of CBFs Rural Poverty Initiative. You may remember that several years ago, our youth and Nada youth went to Helena for a week of camp, mission projects, and basketball.
