Today was such a wonderful day! The ministry gave out about 500 cookies to High Springs, Florida area businesses. We plan to do this every September since we take July and August off. This will help to remind everyone that we are all rested up and ready to start baking again. Of course, if you purchase through Etsy and are willing to pay the shipping we will gladly bake and ship for you all year long! Just no deliveries in July and August. Does that make sense? Sometimes I feel like I'm typing in circles. Lol! Anyway, we have a new double chocolate cookie that we are working on and the preliminaries are looking and tasting amazing. We'll let you know when it's ready for sale!! Again, thank you so much for supporting this ministry. All monies, other than ingredients, go to the ministries that are listed on our website. Visit our Facebook page and our Etsy page!

We have some of the most wonderful volunteers! They made dough for 8 hours yesterday and baked for 12 hours today! Woot! We now have around 38 boxes of cookies to take to area businesses so that they can taste test the cookies and hopefully order some. It is a leap of faith and we are committed to building this highly productive outreach ministry! They are all such beautiful cookies! Our volunteer Jackie calls them "five bite cookies" but for me it's more like 6 or 7 bites! We also prepared 27 Ouch Pouches today for the police and fire rescue. Here are all our pics from the day. Just want you to see what we've been up to. Love you all! God is soooooooooo GREAT!

So tomorrow is the next biggest day in the life of this ministry and in our lives. We are baking another round of 400+ cookies. These cookies are for 25 local businesses. Menus will be included. We also plan to return to the High Springs Farmer's Market starting in October. Come and see us! While there we will sell cookies, invite people to church, hand out our cookie menus, hand out Gideon New Testaments, and interact with the wonderful people in our community. There is no time to waste! We can't stress it enough that life is so fragile and tenuous. People who need Jesus are living right around the corner. People need Jesus! We ALL need Jesus. And you know what? We must work to bring Him into the lives of the lost and the saved. There is no better time than the present, don't you think? Check us out at the beginning of summer sweating it out at the market. We're hoping that October is a bit more cool because the Lemon Pizzazz cookies don't enjoy the heat!
