I know many of you are dying for some news from New Day! Internet is sparse, but we were able to talk to Wes & Laurie this week. Power is still out for 8 hours a day, but the rain has begun and brought a little bit cooler weather at times! Shannon (Texas volunteer) is there for another 3 weeks, and her dad has joined her. The Batten family is also there helping out. Teacher Diana will head back to Texas to be with her mother for Christmas but has plans to return to New Day on January 4th! Enjoy the pics!
