Moving is pretty well done! Saturday, in the pouring rain, everything was pretty well moved into our new church facility. Jerry and I directed traffic in the new facility…meaning we directed the movers to the right location in the building to deposit the boxes and office equipment they were moving. We were finished at 5:30 pm and we started at 8:00 am this morning. I pretty well know where everything is in the new facility. I walked miles today and my hips, knees, ankles and feet are sore and my legs ache from walking the concrete floors all day.

At Lakeview we had about 30 to 35 people cleaning the church…every floor vacuumed…all the walls were washed…all the cupboard cleaned…windows washed inside and out…kitchen cleaned from top to bottom…it is the cleanest Lakeview has been in the 10 years I have worked there. Rose Friesen coordinated the cleaning and she was amazing.

Now the work begins to set up the new facility. There is so much work still to be done…some of the offices have no power…some no lights…no telephones…no internet…the next weeks will be very interesting. We will all need to set up our offices and the ministry areas will all have to be set up. Lots of work ahead of us. We will not start our services in the gym until August and our sanctuary will not be finished until October at the earliest.

A new season has begun at Lakeview or whatever our name will be in the future…
