Day Two

Day two started out great with getting more of the industrial strength swing set hardware up!
A lot of the work today was focused on the little one's play area!
The deck to the slide area was put in place.
The Grace Family Educational Centre school kids who were playing in the field were saying they can't wait to play at the new playground!!!
After lunch the railing was put up around the little one's deck and the hearty stairs were made and put into place!
Bryan and Joseph were working on cutting down the railing to fit for Tom to put in.
Joseph loves to learn from Tom and Bryan and to be able to use the awesome power tools!
Kipchumba, Moses and Lily enjoyed using the leftover wood to make puzzles and homes!

Yahoo! 3 swings up and a tire swing... 5 more swings to go of various heights! The kids are loving it all already! Thank you Lord for your strength and inspiration to the strong men to make these amazing improvements!

Day 1 of playground revitalization!!

September 28th day one of playground revamping, repairing and adding new play areas!!
Lucy and Levi wanted to show you what is going on here! Tom and Bryan from Roanoke, VA arrived this week and got to work right away. Our playground is well love by Grace family and the community children! It is a place to explore, get past fear of heights, play with your friends and just be a kid. Many children around our area cannot wait for Sunday play day! They come to learn more about Jesus and then play the rest of the day. Most children have a lot of chores and helping around their homes that playing is a luxury. We are thankful we are able to give them that gift.
Figuring out the height of the new poles to help the swing set be more stable.
The holes are dug for the posts going up for a small version of slide and swings for the little ones!

Everyone is enamored with the amount of power tools from America! It makes the work here go a lot smoother and quicker. Tom has been bringing quality tools little by little  since his first trip in 2012.

Later in the afternoon of day one they were getting a lot of little eyes watching them work!
An American generator that came on the container has been such a blessing for all the American power tools to work well!
Lily, Levi, Kipchumba, Moses and Lucy.
As you can see new top beams and middle beams were installed to make a stout and sturdy tire swing and swing set area!!
Tom and Bryan up on the ladders to drill holes through the telephone pole type beams to hold industrial tire swing hardware! 
Lucy, Moses and Levi.
The beams are in place for the little one's play area!

The swing sets and the little one's play area both needed the generator to power the tools so it had to be in the middle! Lucy and Moses saw it as a nice line to jump over!
