We have had the GREATEST teams (some of them family of GLA staff) in the last few months. They have worked so hard and even with the rainy season making it difficult to work in the mud and clay soil, they still got a lot done! Recently, a team from Burnett Fellowship in Maple Ridge, British Columbia started pouring the sidewalk in front of the Toddler Houses. This sidewalk will allow the children to ride their tricycles, skateboard, roller skate, and just have a nice smooth surface to play on.
Where you see the dirt in the photos will be a really nice playground that was donated to GLA by the Emmanuel Foundation out of Canada. Their ministry receives playground equipment from city parks where they are replacing their older playgrounds with new. They refurbish it, and then donate it to orphanages and schools in third world countries. They will be coming this Fall to construct the playground at Fort Jacques.
