Over the past couple of months our Church has gone through a very quick transitional period. It was a shift of individuals, issues, and ideas. I have been moved to a new ministry that will be quite different from what is traditional. It's only beginning to take form now.

Jansen who has helped me with Refuge over the past year and a half or so has taken on the ministry of Refuge Youth Church. It's certainly an exciting and different time for all of us.

My wife Michelle has also recently taken on the challenge of Children's Ministry at our Church and is excited to be doing so.

That is a sort of update, more is to come....

Family Craziness!

So here's the details of what's been going on! My Grandpa recently passed away and my parents made the trip over to Surrey area to find out the details and find the will and the lawyer and to figure out funeral details and whatnot. It took them about a week but they have found the lawyer and set the dates for the services and all of that. There were definitely some bizarre circumstances surrounding his death which I wont go into, anyways my parents should be back tomorrow.
On other fronts I'm finally back to work and getting the hours I need to live off of hahaha it's definitely a bit more tricky with three hotels instead of two but we are weathering the storm and figuring out how to make it work.

1st Year Anniversary

Hey there.
Shell and I are doing great here in Victoria. I'm now the youth leader in Victoria, I lead worship pretty much every Sunday and business at PSAV is going well. Shell still can't work or volunteer yet but things seem to be moving along. Today is our first year anniversary and it is wonderful. We went off to a bed and breakfast that is owned by a friend in our church and had a nice relaxing day together. Well that's all for now but I will keep you all posted with everything that is going on in our lives. May God bless you and keep you.

Money Pit

Hey, so for the past couple of months my dad has been working on the side of our house. He thought "oh we'll just take out this window and make a wall and then we can actually use the room for something". He didn't anticipate the amount of money that it would cost him in the end....we aren't even there yet. While working on the window area and the wall area around it they found something troubling. The wall was they took a look and unfortunately all the supports under the kitchen area where the stove and counters are were rotting as well.
It was a result of poor planning, and not enough thought when my Grandpa decided to build that section. He didn't put a concrete wall to keep the water off the wood and so we get the wood rot. The funny thing is that the office behind our house is built well, except that it also deflects water and other liquids into the wooden supports of our house.
So there you have it, the construction gongshow occuring at the Leask residence.
God bless!

So I apologize for those who may actually read these haha this is my first post since July, it has been busy busy busy with lots of changes....sounds a little like the weather doesn't it.
Anyways, Amy, my sister, is moving up to Courtenay where Rich is right now. Rich has a job at Northgate Foursquare doing the media and what not.
I have been put mostly in charge of the youth group here in Vic. Jansen is in leadership as well helping me out and I feel like God has something incredible he wants to do so I'm really excited about it. I'll have to work hard to make sure that I can balance youth, worship, work, and my personal God time but I know that I'm in a great place right now.
God has really blessed me and that's what has been going on in a my next blog I will fill you in on the Renovations at our house. It's a hilarious gong show and I'll fill you in later.
Bye for now!

The Dark Knight

Well last night I went and saw the new Batman movie "The Dark Knight," and it was absolutely awesome. When it was first announced that Heath Ledger would be the Joker I cringed because to me it didn't seem like his kind of movie and I didn't think he could do the part. I must say though that the first time I heard the Joker laugh in the trailer I knew it was going to be intense, and wow was it ever. 

Amongst the action and intensity of the struggle and the Joker himself there were some great messages in it. The only thing I have to say is that obedience to God and to the call and gifts He's given us is essential to our lives. Holding onto morality and integrity is so important especially in these days. 

You see the morals, no integrity, no sense of right or wrong, and nothing of caring within him. He just is. Batman's struggle is to keep his integrity and morals whilst fighting that kind of evil. Anyways I won't type anymore for those who haven't seen it yet.

Well, finally I've come back to post something. I've been working pretty solidly this past week and heading into a week of almost nothing.
This past week we had a visit from Shell's family, her dad, mom, sister, grandparents, and the Klundts(some family friends). It was a pretty fun visit when I wasn't working with carriage rides and trips to the breakwater and the Beacon Drive-inn. It was also good to see both families come together and have it feel like it's one family and not two.
Anyways, I have more posts coming, there has been a lot going on!
