Watch some of the construction process and hear Jason talk about our vision for this space.
Our activity center is almost finished, thanks to Faith -- both the group from Faith Church in Indiana and through the Faith that kept us building even when we didn't know if the finances would be there to keep going.
Lots of the neighborhood kids were around to watch and help. We can already sense the excitement in the community about what we're building. Many people have stopped to ask about the building and how people in the community can use it. This will be such a great space for us keep kids moving and having fun even when it's raining outside, with our 100+ inches of rainfall every year. So, thanks to everyone who helped to work on this project or who gave towards the construction costs -- we couldn't have done it without you.
P.S. We wanted to proudly announce that this is our 100th blog post for Give Hope 2 Kids! Thanks to all our readers for your continued interest in our work.
During the summer months, while college classes were out, we had two guys who came to help us out. Preston and Matt were very different people from different places, but both excelled here in their time volunteering with us. They taught our English classes and ran the library during our trip to the States in June, as well as helping out our construction crew and managing other projects. They did a great job connecting with the kids of our community, keeping our educational programs running, and just helping out in general.
We want to say thanks to both of you for all the hard work you've done this summer. We appreciate you and hope to see you both down here again some time.
