Pastor Scott Bush got this idea while serving a tour of duty as an Army chaplain in Iraq:
Bush saw how the soldiers around him missed their children, and he realized many children don't see their deployed parents for great lengths of time. Bush started thinking about how the men and women in Iraq could be connected to their children across the miles.With the help of Gina Jones, a member of Bush's church, they are sending hundreds of books to Iraq so soldiers can record those DVDs for their children.
Bush soon had the idea of having soldiers read a book to their children, record it on DVD, then send the DVD home along with the book.
This shows what people can accomplish when they work together to improve the lives of people in difficult situations.
