From: Jackie--Mission School (
Subject:         WTB--Long list of Misc. items and books need to purchase for mission school
Date: April 8, 2011 at 11:30 am PST

My husband and I are missionaries in the Marshall Islands in the field of Christian Education. Since we are a mission school we operate on a very tight budget so I am hoping some of you will have some of the items that we may be able to purchase. Our school has over 300 students in grades k4-12. Our most important goal is to get the gospel to the students and their families while also providing them with a quality education.

Please scroll all the way through the list---it is long---if you have any of these items for sale please email me directly.

Please share our list of needs and my email address with anyone you know who may be able to help.

We use the US Postal system and pay the same rates as you do. Media mail can be shipped here.

Thanks and blessings,
