And the 2015 Corn Harvest Begins

And the harvest begins in Amatongas, only two months later than usual due to the late rainy season. Soon we will be able to grind our own corn into flour instead of buying 50kgs in town every day. Our wonderful boarders helped fill two trailer loads today beginning work at 5:00 AM. 

We give a huge shout out saying thank you to our brothers, students, teachers and friends at Saint Stanislaus High School in Bay St. Louis, MS who raised funds during lent to help us purchase corn flour during these first two very difficult months of the school year.
