Arrival to view new building construction

I arrived in Comalapa yesterday to view the completion of the tire house and begin work for our GlobalGiving Challenge. I was greeted at Parque Chimya by a mother and a group of 6 children happily enjoying the well cultivated gardens and the beautiful fields. They were eager to pose for a picture and I have included it here. The tire house is now occupied and has a functioning kitchen and running water. This is a successful prototype for future building. I climbed the steep hill and found a group of boys and young men having a competitive game of soccer on the grass soccer field on a sunny Sunday afternoon. All is well and thriving at Parque Chimya.

Tire house is beautiful.
