well, i would recommend you to use a JS pre-loader which can change the text using the settimeout()...
since i see you use php framework, use a JS library like ExtJS, or jQuery etc. with xAjax to perform exactly the task you want.. :)

well, if you might consider using a Progress bar with the text, u may like this... i think..
My first option: JS file is here...

Demo:: http://www.caktux.ca/staging/poissonblanc/ 
Dont mind the language, see the progress loading of the page.. NO IMAGES PURE CSS...

Other resources:

The lucid examples of jQuery Progress bar samples... if u dont want progress bar.. but only text.. i think u can thnk again... cant u???... :)
