For many years, God has been laying a burden on my heart to pioneer a new ministry at the YWAM North base in Corrientes: a coffee shop, which then transformed into a bake shop, and has now become a “x” Shop… “X” being fill in the blanks God, tell me what you want us to do and sell in this space to reach the people of Corrientes with Your Word!!!!
In an effort to begin with this project, along with much prayer and seeking of His direction, I have also decided to begin with my own little start-up company, Pedacito del Cielo, (Little Piece of Heaven in English). This will be a catering company specific to birthdays, 15-yr birthdays (a big deal in Latin cultures), weddings, and any other event. The product will be cupcakes, sugar cookies, brownies, etc. and I will also sell such “gringo” desserts at church events, special holidays, etc. This is all in an effort to begin raising funds and awareness for the project to be able to open in a physical spot downtown, with tables, chairs, coffee, some time in the near future.
Please pray for this project, that God will guide me to the right direction as to what to offer, when to open, where to open, and that He will also bring other people to the project. We will need a place to rent downtown, furniture for the shop space, coffee machines, dishes, oven, fridge, etc etc.
I am so excited about this first step and Pedacito del Cielo will be a great stepping stone to getting this project on the go! Blessings from Corrientes!
