The Cafe' Experiment - Week 1
Sunday, June 7th was our first experiment day for The Cafe' at Severns Valley. Overall we thought it went pretty well, especially when you consider it was something totally new and we didn't know what to expect. There was certainly a lot of curiosity and questions. This was an exciting day as we watched so many of you participate and have great comments on the food that was served. We are continuing to listen to you as we tweak The Cafe’.
Here's a recap of that day:
- We had a total of 253 transactions
- The top selling items were:
- Coffee - 162 (not counting free refills)
- Adult Meals - 112
- Eggs - 67
- Bacon - 63
- Juice - 45
- Total sales were - $1,205
- Total profit - $660
As we stated, all profit from The Cafe' will go to missions. We have tried to set the prices low to make this Cafe’ affordable for families to gather at a table to fellowship on Sunday mornings. Even in doing this, we were still able to make a profit that will go to missions.
Over the past few years, God has opened some incredible doors of opportunity in Nicaragua. We are confident that, in the future, He will be opening up even more opportunities in other parts of the world.
Here are just a few things that we could possibly do in Nicaragua if The Cafe' were to be open a full year:
- We could build a church building like the one in El Platanal.
- We could provide salaries for 14 pastors each year.
- We could install 5 water wells.
- We could install 20 water purification systems.
- And there is so much more we could do!
The next experiment day for The Cafe' is Sunday, July 5th.
On this day we will have our new coffee equipment set up and running. Hopefully, no more delays in getting a cup of hot coffee in your hands.
Please continue to pray for our Missions Ministry. Thank you Severns Valley for being so excited about sharing the Gospel Here, Near and Far.
