Wow!  I had a blast yesterday, Sunday.   I was thrilled to be behind the counter serving up pastries at the grand opening of ComuniCafe, an outreach ministry of our church, CELebracion. 

Communicafe's Mission and Vision:  ComuniCafe is a not profit coffee shop ministry of CELebrecion and is located in the downtown area of Siguatepeque, Honduras. Since real discipleship begins with growing relationships and meaningful conversations that revolve around the Person of Jesus Christ, His life and His teachings, the primary goal of ComuniCafe is to provide a comfortable, fun, and accepting environment for the community of Siguatepeque where such relationships can grow.  We realize that a large percentage of the population is no longer attracted or open to the traditional church model and must be engaged in a different forum.   As a secondary outreach, we plan to invest the profits from ComuniCafe into projects that would fulfill some of Honduras's most basic needs.  These projects would include such products as efficiency wood burning stoves (Ecocinas), water filters, and water purification systems and educational programs.  Since ComuniCafe will be staffed by volunteers, it will allow us to maximize our investments in these types of social projects.

Some really priceless memories of the day:   Watching the deaf young people be able to order, change their mind, and then order again. All in sign. Me, on the floor.   The dear lady that runs the register is able to communicate in sign language.  So very cool.   Watching all the young people, in age and spirit, be able to drink what they like, listen to music, dance, laugh, and hang....all in a safe, God inspired place.  

Great experience, thrilled to see this new ministry thrive.
