Fall Blessings of Growth

It is Fall here in Copenhagen and this week is the Fall Break in all the schools. The breeze has been crisp and leaves are slowly changing. Pumpkins are showing up and new recipes are being thought about.

Things in the cafe are going full swing. Our business has picked up dramatically and our weeknight are becoming busier and busier. The team has also added some new activities to help with this. One couple has added a children's song time to their evening shift. And another has added a Disney movie night to theirs. Both have shown great response from the families in the area. This past Friday we had a whole room of tables reserved for the movie night.

Our other ministries have been flowing as well. A few weeks ago at Girls Night In we had a record number of woman who came to learn how to decorate mini-tower cakes. It was a great night. We even had some girls who came because I handed them a flier in the shop. The men have also started a 5 week study group where they are going through material on how to be a better husband/man. It is a mixed group of Christian and non-Christian, some are married, dating, and single. They claim everything shared there is too secret, but all express it has been a great time of learning and fellowship.

Last night we had a volunteer hang-out night. It was a great time of fellowship and getting to know each other. Our group is so diverse. We had at least 6 different nationalities represented there. As well as volunteers from the church and volunteers that have joined us from our website add. We enjoyed cakes from different places, and food from our international roots. It was a great time of fellowship and sharing with each other.

God is working in Sweet Surrender Copenhagen and it has been inspiring to share with so many different people and to be able to make a difference in this city, in our neighbors, and in our volunteers through one cup of coffee at a time.
