Starbucks Outreach

Today at 10 was the monthly Starbucks outreach.  I always look forward to that time when our staff closes up shop for an hour and we converge on over 30 businesses in our immediate area and take orders for Starbucks!  God has given us great favor in our community as a result of our willingness to…
