The playground

Our play equipment in our Junior Playpark had really become old and shabby and needed replacing. Last year we were given a whole set of play equipment (like a McDonalds playground) which had hardly been used. The challenge was, how would we get it it out of the building it was in and out of the tiny streets of an old part of Manila?

Well, someone lent us a six wheeler truck and with six men we spent the whole day dismantling, loading, travelling and then finally unloading it back here. That involved 3 hours of taking it apart, carrying each part through double doors, down steps, into a yard and heaving them onto the truck - by the end the truck was completely filled! 

The next challenge was how to erect this indoor equipment outdoors, but in the shade so it'll be nice and airy (and beyond the access of frogs and cats!). Our school PTA President and her committee got behind the project and raised money for roofing to install it outside in the Junior Play-park. All this week our maintenance men and caretakers have been busy fitting all the bits together again. It was quite the puzzle, but they've succeeded and it looks good. Praise God!! Engineer Daniel, husband of the PTA President, is organising his workmen for free to put up the roofing and fencing and gate. 

Isn't that just like God! He wants to bless us! We are his children! We didn't even pray for this, but he knew we needed it and where it was, sitting doing nothing, just gathering dust. Now it's ours and ready for the kids to enjoy.
