Kate Gets Her Swingset!

Kate got her swingset!

Thank you all for your encouragement, effort, contacts, and donations! Where there was no playset, there is now a simple joy for a girl going through so much. This is the reality of what Realtime Church can do when we try to be Christ's hands and feet! Without all of you, this never would have happened.

Here is a description in Holly's (mom's) words-

"...her mouth dropped open when she opened them and saw the swing set. Immediately she asked 'who in the world bought this for me?' She was ecstatic and said she would only play on it for a few hours that night, even though it was already dark... Thank you to those of you who helped make this possible- our friends who wanted Kate to smile and enjoy the days she does get at home. Thank you for making Kate your first recipient through Realtime Church.. and to those of you who funded this endeavor!! All 3 kids enjoyed it immensely today... and Kate was even able to swing in the special swing it has for her (she doesn't have to hold on with both hands).... again thank you! She says that now 2 of her dreams have come true." [a dog being the other]

The picture to the right is Kate in the playset on the first night.

There is still a little bit of work to be done. In order to maximize Kate's time on the playset before her next round of chemo, we put the playset in before the yard was prepped for it. Some teams still have to do some work before the playset is put in its permanent place. Please keep the remainder of this project in your prayers, and let us know if you have an idea on how you can help. And of course, keep this sweet little girl in your prayers as she still has some fighting left to do.

This is the playset the day before Kate got home. The kids are Kate's brother and sister.
