All our slides now are built this way. We repainted their sign, the name of the kindergarten, and built a frame. Fire department who goes around to all institutions came and said their small cook house where they prepare children’s food must be closed unless they cut away wood around the
At local school, one end of roof we tore off, raised rafters, replaced material, plus patched around chimney. Back entrance aprox. 12’x12’ needed new roof. Tore off old and made rafters, nailed boards on, put roll roofing on, then shaffer, a roof material. Plus, one side of foundation was rotten, so repaired this. Steps front entrance were unsafe. We were asked to replace, tore out old, new foundation, steps, painted, then built 4x5 foot overhang to help keep rain and snow from destroying new entrance.
Used metal poles for support, so cutting and welding was needed and added roof material. Replaced three pieces of glass. We bought one large sheet and cut and installed. Was asked to paint there school sign and make a frame, so we did.
We showed Christian videos 4 nights a week, plus sang Christian songs and shared our testimonies.
Wednesday night, we had a question and answer service about God. To my surprise, lasted over two hours. Sunday we held services.

William and Andre shared with them the gospel of Jesus. They listened, took some Christian literature to read. The dad said that one needs to come to God all the time, and not only when problems come our way. They needed to take the boy to a good clinic in Moscow. The state provides for the boy’s treatment, but the mother had to pay for her accommodation at the clinic. The husband is unemployed. So, we helped. They said they wanted to come to our church services some day. September 26, 2005
