Tim Callahan gave us two of his books to sell on behalf of Blessing Hands. This is his Website. Click on the books to get more information about each of them. They would both make great Christmas gifts. I really enjoy reading his books since he is a Christian writer.

I am a mother and housewife that loves China and children. The two interests
have come together in serving the children of China who need help with
educational needs. I started as a teacher in an English summer camp and got to
know the teachers first. When I toured their schools and met their precious
students, I could see many needs and decided to try to help. I first started a
fund to assist children with tuition, but it has expanded into a 501(c)(3)public
charity granting money for textbooks and school supplies for primary school and
lower middle school students and tuition for older students.
