Another Cup o' Joe, and Some Ministry

Good friends know that I love a good cup of coffee, or on a cold day, a great latte. After I finished up a week of ministry in Ensenada, Mexico, I tried out a new coffee joint in the relatively new Macroplaza, south of town. It is called "Buzz Cafe." Here's a picture of what their lattes look like. Pure art. If you get a chance, or are going to be there sometime this summer, let me know. The coffee's on me!

Now on another note, here are a few pics from our ministry time. 29 meters of concrete [almost 39 cubic yards for you non metric people], 60 meters of fill dirt, and a lot of hard work ffrom a great of students and leaders from Burns, Oregon and UCLA. All of which gives us a great foundation to build on for a new worship facility for Iglesia Dios es Amor [God is Love Church].

Pastor Jesus and yours truly comically breaking ground on the project.

Gary from Burns, Oregon, doing a little compacting with the "belly bumper."

Every concrete floor needs a little steel to help make it strong.

And, the finished product. Ready for framing, which starts next week.

Finally, please pray for us this week. We need to raise $15,000.00 before April 10 to build this church. If you wish to donate, or know someone who can help us reach our goal, click here to donate to Adventures in Life Ministry. All donations are tax deductible and 100% of your donations for this project will go directly into the new worship center for Pastor Jesus and their rapidly growing congregation.

I'm gonna say we kicked that foundation's butt, Mr. Miller. I really like the pick of Gary compacting.
