Preparing the School Site
GARY: Boy, the kids were excited! I spent 3½ days on the school site dismantling the old tin sheds that they had put up for the schoolchildren, so I could level the ground. Then we could start pouring the foundations. After I drove the backhoe off from the site after leveling it, it didn’t take the children even 5 minutes to show up there.
What was interesting is that I talked to the village people about the children needing an athletic field, and they said, “No, no, no, no; they don’t really play sports.”
JACOB: Well, we sure figured that story out in 5 seconds.
GARY: What were the kids doing in this photo?
JACOB: Looks like they’re playing soccer.
GARY: Yes, and how many hours did they play soccer?
JACOB: Only about 3 or 4!
GARY: Yes! And they told us, “Oh, let’s not build the school here. We want to play soccer!”
