The Camp Family has arrived at New Day! Adam is the pastor of one of our supporting churches, Rosemont Baptist Church in La Grange, GA, and his church has graciously given him the month of October "off" (haha, if you've ever been to New Day you know you are not "off" when you are here!) to spend the month with us! His wife, Amy, will be spending every day teaching Math in Kabanga Basic School, and 3 of their four children will be attending the New Day School! (Gracie, Abby, Lydia, & Jonas). We are so excited to have them here!! Serving God for a month in the HOTTEST month of the year is...fun. ;)
Yesterday Blu took the kids on a work day "field trip" for their Home Economics class! They learned the local process for making and burning bricks! Someone had already made the bricks and they were dried in the sun - here all 3,000 of them are! (We will use these to finish construction of our new staff house)
The kids' job was to move them and stack them like this, so that fires can be built in the holes at the bottom. Once the bricks are stacked, mud is piled all around them and the fires are built, and the bricks "slow cook" until they are burned and ready for use!
Working hard! It was 103 yesterday...

Check out these work faces!
Little Kefbert went too! He didn't get much work done though...
The very first thing Kefbert did was knock over these 2 water coolers full of ice water. Blu loaded back up on the bus and headed back to New Day to fill them up again!
Uncle Mulenga, Teacher Abby, and Mama Liz were there to help too! (Teacher Darbi was NOT there to help... ;)
When they were done, Blu told them they had 10 minutes to play in this natural "sandbox." Who needs electronics?!
