MKs Enjoy Reading

These MKs in Colombia just received a package of books, and they love to read! This young man got some books about drawing, and now he’s drawing all the time. He’ll probably grow up to be an artist!

They got some wonderful books, and enjoy reading them together as a family!

 

Nothing brings a family together like reading, especially on the mission field!  You can donate to Books for MKs so that more books can be sent to missionary families.
