still in the process of cleaning out the old porn shop and today we got to put our stn seal on the window. its incredible watching the restoration of this old building and in the last three weeks so much has changed in the building. we have a team from high desert church in victorville, that is volunteering their time to tear down walls, paint, and clean out rooms. last night, we were praying in the corner of a little room (that i had never stepped foot in because it was covered in boxes) during our all-night prayer, and i was dreading praying in the middle of the night because i used to get so spooked in that building and how dark it was. i felt so much light and overwhelmed at all that God has done through people that take the time to come out here and give their sweat and their hearts to the transformation of these buildings and this community.

the grand opening of our surfers cafe was a great success! we kicked it off with our alive art show which included some STN artists doing a live painting and vendors that filled our market. to top it off, we had the pleasure of having Josh Garrels fly all the way out from portland and perform. the coffee lounge was packed and full of warmth and laughter! what formerly was a bar is now a place for people to come and take a break and have a conversation over a cup of coffee or an acai bowl:) looking forward to holding more events in our coffee house, plus its such a great perk walking down the stair of our apartment and having our very own place to get caffeine.
