All Seven Team Members are Going!

Through some miraculous events last week, all seven team members for from Lee's Summit Community Church are going to Nepal in October! The flights have been booked and tickets purchased. Thanks to all our contributors and prayer support people.

More Photos from the Build Site

The last set of photos were actually of the current basketball court. The current playground (which we didn't know they had) is located next to the basketball court, across a small wall. The playground consists of swings (1 bay, 2 seats), a see-saw and a slide. Surfacing is gravel and dirt. The size of this playground and current configuration may prevent us from installing the BigToy play structure in this area. Also, there is a utility pole located inside the playground. The alternative as explored for us by Leezsa of WFN is currently a corn field and chicken coop. Here are the photos of the old playground and possible new site for the BigToys equipment.

The above photos were taken by another American currently in Nepal and working with the Womens Federation of Nepal. I met Leeza through KaBOOM. She is coordinating efforts to build playgrounds in Nepal as well. Thank you Leeza!
