Database Manager on December 09, 2018:

In 2002, the church sold the organ to Peter Jansen, an electrical contractor in Langley, British Columbia. Mr. Jansen moved the organ and reassembled the instrument in his Langley workshop, and fitted it with new wiring, including new connectors for a "plug and play" installation. Mr. Jansen also added a rank of Oboes.
In 2018, the Jansen family sold the instrument to the Valley Crossway Church, a congregation that meets in the Great Hall of the Calvin Presbyterian Church, which is located at 33911 Hazelwood Ave, Abbotsford, BC V2S 7V2.
