Channel 30 had to cover another story on Sunday April 14, 2013 and was not able to come out as previously scheduled. But they will be following up with us shortly and when they do I will post and update. We are not loosing hope on this need being met within our community someway somehow.

We have also received a mail in $100.00 donation from Jo Ellen in the Montery Area. Thank you so much! Emma is believing her roof will be completed soon and we are believing with her.
