One more step forward

Last week we had a team from the Highland Church in Robinson, Illinois. The women finished  painting the playground. As you can see from the pictures, it looks fantastic. I can not wait to see it with the astro turf.  

Some of them even tried the equipment.

They also cleaned up the playground on the last day.

While the team was at Fort Jacques, the astro turf and a bunch of diapers showed up from the container that was in port. The team helped unload the trucks. The ladies separated all the diapers by size and helped moved them to two of the toddler houses where they will be stored for the time being.








The men finished the side of the school by the playground using the new scaffolding that Tim built. It does look worse than it is and we have safety belts for the people working up there. 


They also started building the scaffolding at the other side of the building. John Bickel, Steve Bickel, and Georges Gauvreau finished it this week and put up the plywood.












We are now 4 months before the kids have to be at Fort Jacques. We need teams and people to come and give us a hand as we still have finishing work to do in the toddler houses, the ceiling of the school to be put up plus all the painting inside the school and outside on the second story. We have to build the house for the toddler house director, the kitchen and a lot of  electrical to do. If you want and be part of this great project, contact our Colorado office.
