Hey friends! Couple of (pretty) urgent prayer requests like to share with you Re: our roles in the coffeehouse/house church ministry in Poland:
1.) COPENHAGEN! We are leading the fundraising efforts to take 12+ volunteers and staff members from our Poznań and Kraków locations to the 2011 Nordic Barista Cup coffee summit in Copenhagen, Denmark. Attending this conference is an AWESOME opportunity -one God used to work genuine educational and relational miracles in the lives of our staff members last year- but it's also a fairly expensive one. Please pray that God will provide the necessary funds in time...he always has before, and we're trusting him to do it again! :)
2.) ROASTING! It's possible that a church in States will be sponsoring the purchase of a small, commercial coffee roaster to serve all three Sweet Surrender shops in Poland (and possibly interested Nazarene churches in the States). Many things have to fall into place before that can happen, but among the most important concerns is Brittany's need to find a master coffee roaster in Kraków that is willing to grant her a crash-course apprenticeship this summer and fall. Please pray that God's will might be done in this situation, and in his time!
Thanks so much for you prayers and support...we could have never made it this far without you!
