Pastor Steven Gruwald was the person who had to repair the equipment, generators and anything that was a machine working to start this project. Not only did he get a generator working that hadn’t been working for 3 years but he also fixed the playground equipment for the school too. At one point there were 35 children on the merry go round. Steve had the opportunity to preach the word of God also in Onitsha.  Each trip Steve is preaching the word, working on machines and helping to build the desks, chairs, tables and cabinets

 Doug Christie was the supervisor for the carpentry work. The boards they had to work with were cut on one end 1 inch and lead up to 3 inches on the other end. The wood was of different density through out the plank. The large planer that was shipped on the container was a great asset in this project. The boards were planed to one thickness. The furniture was built to perfection and strong. Screws were used in the area where before nails were being used, which didn’t last long.  Doug built furniture and desks for schools at Owerri and Onitsha, Nigeria.
