Harry Wallace reported that the Taylor Family was living in their new home, as of 26 Jun 12. This could not have happened if not for the wonderful volunteers with the ACC and the people of the Good Shepherd Mission. This was a transition year since Sister Nancy was not able to help. Thank you all from Good Shepherd Mission for stepping in!
