Many people have been hard at work this last month getting the Parsonage in town and the church building in the country ready to receive students this fall. In many ways, it was a lot of small projects that added up to some big ones.
I helped my wife get her office in order and rearranged. Her desk was moved, her books rearranged, and her church crafting supplies were organized. Part of that was getting some shelving put together. Next on the list is a work table.
All of this work in her office has prepared the way to begin getting the rest of the house ready for the students who God is preparing to come. To that end, I spent a good deal of time getting a washer and dryer hooked up (both are fully functional now). A seal is on order and then it will be a quick five minutes until the dishwasher is ready to go. The new aerator on the kitchen faucet is working well too.
Upstairs, furniture has been moved and bedrooms are beginning to take shape. I owe a good deal of thanks to my friend David who came and helped move stuff around. I especially owe him for the help with moving an old steel desk all the way to the basement. It was a beast of a desk but we made it without injury or incident. Getting the furniture we have in place has helped me begin to see what is still needed. I’m also very thankful because I know most of what I need has been offered already.
Not much has gone on at St. Peter this month but, I am grateful to Moeller Electric for running a short electrical line so that work can proceed next month. This receptacle under the sink will allow the dishwasher and reverse osmosis system to have power. Watch this space in the coming month for the projects related to that.
