It's been ages since I last posted so I'll give you all a brief update of the status of The Press. Things have been moving right along and we have been given a green light to open The Press in September 2009!! At the moment I'm working on a checklist of what needs to be done, bought and sorted before we leave for the states this summer to visit our families. The list is consisting of fun things like buying teapots and then not so fun things like buying bins. But it's all part of what will be needed to make this thing a success. I feel nervous at times by the size of this challenge but at the same time thrilled to have such an incredible opportunity and chance. Thank you Jason and Michelle for giving me this chance! I hope I do it well and that it will bring people closer to Jesus.
We have some logos being worked on so once I have that finalized I'll post it and you can weigh in with your opinions. As far as the other bits and pieces go they will hopefully just fall into place with the help of my to-do list that keeps getting updated.
For those of you who are following the progress of The Press I have a favor to ask of you. Would you please keep me in your prayers? I really would like to see God's stamp all over this place and want to make it accessible for as many people as possible but at times I do get overwhelmed thinking of all the logistics. So I could really use some committed volunteers to help out on a regular basis. Also pray that our location would not present itself as too much of a challenge to overcome in getting people in the doors. (Our building is located at the top of a hill and is quite a workout to get up). Pray that we pick the right hours for opening that will meet the needs of the most vulnerable people. Pray that we can anticipate what God is doing and work alongside of Him. Basically just pray! Thanks and I will keep you updated if there's any important news from now until then.
