A meeting was held to review the results of the visit; it was agreed to form a group of interested professionals to build Graceland International School. Don Ghostlaw and Peter Dewberry brought the news and photos from the trip to St. Peter's Church, where their support base is located. Several members agreed to form a group and discuss ways to make the school project happen.
In addition, Bob Chagnon, who accompanied the group and researched the logistics for wire-transferring funds safely, was asked to serve in the group. As he was already working with a similar organization providing medical care, he declined but volunteered his wife, Elaine, an educator. She accepted the invitation and joined the group along with Fr. Tom White, Barbara Hoff-Morris, and Amy Crenshaw, all from St. Peter's Church.
