This truck, which arrived yesterday, Saturday, brought to the site the long-span roofs LCC ordered for its building.

To get a whole picture of this long truck, I had to stand up a hill 30 meters away.

The truck as seen 40 meters away.

The roofs are so long they even hang. One span is about 10.80 meters, the othersare about 12 meters.

The roof is so heavy it needs two strong men to carry a piece of it.

Four strong men laid the roof beside the road leading to LCC property.

This container van traveled all the way from Abilene, TX to Long Beach, CA, then to Cebu City since the middle of June. It arrived at the campus of LCC, Tacloban City very early yesterday morning, Sunday.

Charlie Sabado, Johnny and Bobby Maur stand in front of the van as a worker begins to open it.

First shown here as the container van is being opened are the beds and cabinets. The beds and the furniture came from a US Army Hospital in San Antonio.

The container van also contains lockers, tables, chairs, hospital items (syringes, cotton rolls, cotton gauzes), books, songbooks, shoes, shirts, dresses, laptops, computer monitors and CPUs, garden tools, carpentry tools, lawn mowers, all donated by the community of Abilene, TX. Some items came from the Office of George Bush, former US president.

Slowly the furniture goes down. Some of these items are actually new!

A student carries the mattress to be stored for a while in LCC's bodega prior to distribution.

The lawn mowing tractor being led out of the container van. Another student gathers the garden tools to be stored at LCC's bodega.

The lawn mowing tractor now out of the van.

Two of LCC's lawn mowers.

No, not just two but three lawn mowers!

Behind the truck is the mobile crane which LCC rented to lift the emptied container van from the trailer.

Johnny and the students put stones under the container van to keep it stable. The van lies beside the road leading to LCC. The container van is also donated by the community of Abilene, TX. One day it could serve as the students' air-conditioned library.

This mobile crane shall also be used to lift up the trusses to be welded to structure of the main building. The trusses shall hold the roofs of the building. The roofs need to be attached now because of the onset of heavy rains.
