Metal, Mud & Wood

September 28, 2020

Construction went underway this week. For starters the structural welding required to support the roof top heat units began. Thank-you Neil & Victor, all your hard work is appreciated! Reinforcement is required and important for the integrity of the roof with the weight we are adding.

A large hole was cut in the concrete and dug down 4′ to re-plumb for our 3 handicap accessible washrooms. Thanks to Terry and his team at Altymate Contracting for taking good care of the site and being pros at what you do!

Saturday our contractor Gerry led the volunteer crew to build 3 large perimeter walls. The building is a little tricky because we have the slide the walls up rather than stand them up. The day was productive and everyone was safe. I think we all knew more about framing than when the day started, and got to know one another too

In Nehemiah 3 the title is “Rebuilding to Wall” and it lists name after name of men who worked next to eachother. This is what it looked like for us too. Everyone working in harmony with an objective. Supporting one another and being a team to get the work done. Grateful to everyone who was there that day! If you want to help with this project please let us know!

After 9 years, almost 500 Sunday set-ups as a mobile church, Joy Fountain has landed on a permanent home. The limitations of renting a space only 4 hours a week are soon to be over! Those mobile years weren’t for nothing - we’ve reached people, become a family and learned how to serve unconditionally - but we are ready for MORE. These next 6 months come along for the journey - watch as we convert this raw 5000 sq ft warehouse into a home for Joy Fountain. You can help us make this possible with your financial donation and sharing in the excitement - tell your friends, tell your neighbors- spread the Word!
