Grand Forks, BC – Weekly Report – June 24-28, 2019

July 2, 2019

This final week of June we were pleased to welcome six weekly volunteers, all coming from B.C.  Some came from the Fraser Valley area – Chilliwack, Yarrow, Abbotsford and Delta, with two joining in from Salmon Arm.  Three young ladies, who will be with us for four weeks, came all the way from Pennsylvania.  We also had two more students who will be staying for eight weeks join us; one from Niverville, MB and one from Kelowna, B.C.  It’s been a pleasure to see them fit in and get involved in the work at hand.

In the new build (Redding house), windows and outside doors were installed and electrical rough in was completed – ready for inspection next week.  The rear deck, front deck and stairs were also completed, much to Mrs. Redding’s great delight!

Great progress happened in the Walter house!  Painting was completed; most of the kitchen cabinets were assembled and installed; most of the flooring was installed, including preparing the flooring for the stairs down from the kitchen to the living area; some of the baseboards were also installed.  This home is quickly coming to completion!

In the Grundel home, sanding and floor leveler was done in preparation for putting down the flooring.  Installation of the flooring was started.

In the McClelland house, the drywall installation was done and the wonderful job of mudding and taping is underway!

The drywall was put up in the washroom of Donna Lester’s home and the 3rd coat of mudding completed.  All who come to either work or visit are treated to Donna’s generous hugs and conversation!

This Tuesday we were invited out to the Gospel Chapel for a very delicious dinner.  We thank them for their kind and generous support of our involvement and service in their community.

We again marvel and thank God for His leading, sending us the right people with the skills to do the work at hand for this week.  Thank you also to those who joined us for the week, willing to work hard and even learn a skill that they might not as yet have.  Thank you also for blessing us with sharing into the MDS family!
