Yes! I am still revived over the concert yesterday! It was Hope Revived: Labor day edition and it was indeed unforgettable!
Everyone in the area used the exclusive Snapchat filter!
Before I dive into the concert, this event was also on a mission! The local missions ministry at HopeNYC dished up a Caribbean favorite: Bake and fish to raise funds for the hurricane Harvey victims in Texas.
Compass served up delicious desserts and coffee outside on the mobile station to continue there every day mission: to provide clean drinking water to other countries and help victims of sex trafficking! Right now for the month of September, proceeds from the Caramel frappe (The best seller) is going towards hurricane Harvey victims!
The concert kicked off with a beautiful vibrant performance from doll hope folk dancers 💃
All the artist were on fire 🔥 The worship was intense, the testimonies were miraculous and everyone could not stop dancing! Flags of different countries were being waved praising God!
This is just a glimpse of what went down yesterday! This video consist of phone & drone vids combined! I know its not DSLR quality but I wanted to put this together!
Two Upcoming Amazing Conferences!
This will be an INTENSE weekend for teens to experience revival & get in a deeper relationship with God! This youth conference will be held at HopeNYC church (Hosted by WildFire Teen Ministry) and EVERY teenager is invited! This weekend will be packed with a fantastic line of some of the best gospel guest artists and our guest speaker: Pastor JC Worley with a life-changing word!
There will also be fun, games and prizes! Food will be provided for all teens! Registration is only $10
In10City is starting on September 8th at 7pm with an evening service followed by the second part on Saturday September 9th at 9am!
God is about to do an awesome work in this conference. This can get intense!
Listen and obey the voice of God! We have heard it before but I never expected to get the message talking with Noah about his daily life struggles or riding in through the safari in a giant jeep or hearing it all in one Hebrew word! SHEMA is an original divine God-given idea for VBS 2017. The excited staff dressed up in costume to be bible characters, safari explorers and animals for the children! It was indeed a bible safari of a lifetime! The songs surrounding the theme were original and created by Hopers! I was so happy there was a CD so I can enjoy the songs when it was all over. The kids learned a mighty amount of things this weekend! They also had tons of fun with crafts, games and the bounce house! Not only did they learn about the word of God but their faith was put into action! The kids wrote encouraging letters to other children in Zimbabwe while putting together care packages. The kids also took their relationship with Jesus to the next level and got baptized (In the Jordan river after a skit with Jesus and John the Baptist!) SHEMA was life-changing and amazing! I can definitely say that VBS has never been done like this before! Watch the video for a glimpse of what happened. Photos are below!
To You! Sips of Hope Group members, Facebook friends and WordPress readers today.
I pray that you will have a ridiculously awesome day that will be much smoother and easier than expected. I pray for progress and plenty to be accomplished each passing hour. I pray for triumph over your challenges that will not only be a moment of sweet victory but a victory that will last forever. I heard that gratitude is one of the best feelings ever. I pray that you would experience gratitude in a very real way. I pray that you will remember every good thing that has ever happened to you and each precious person placed in your life. I not only pray that you will be helped but you will help someone today. Making the difference you never thought you’d make. Praying for stress, depression, fear and every expectation for a bad day to clear out so your thoughts can be clear with peace and simply good things. Praying that today will be one of your best days. Have a blessed day in the name of Jesus! The God of Hope.
Yes it happened again but this time there was more! We all enjoyed the evening breeze with sweet Reggae music & spicy flavor! Jerk chicken wings with fries & mango chow!
After I’ve had some, I decided to cool things down with a tall delicious Oreo milkshake! Too tall! I had to share!
Ladies played an intense game of ludo while men competed in a close round of dominoes!
It’s not reggae night without singing along and grooving the Jamacian way! Check out the rest of the pics on: The Compass Facebook! Endless summer nights continues every Friday this summer at 7pm!

I love watching this video! Kids from HopeNYC describe their moms and wish them an early Happy Mother’s Day! Most of these parents attended yesterday’s dance where this video was first viewed. Hopers! Find your child or yourself or just hear all of them!
The dance was such a beautiful experience! Proceeds went towards HopeNYC’s International Missions Ministry who partnered with the ZionProject to help rescue sex trafficking victims. Some girls get trapped into it while some are sold by their own parents in an effort to provide for the other siblings in the family. Mothers were honored and treated like royalty last night at HopeNYC while giving towards the cause. Wildfire; the teen ministry of the church made the night into an elegant experience executing beautiful hospitality. Gentlemen escorted the mothers upstairs to their table. The girls attended to the needs of the guest and served the three course meal with the gentlemen joining in. There were gifts for every lady in the room; mom or not. There were special awards for our beautiful pastor, the lady crowned for mother of the year and gentleman of the night. There was also a crowning for best dressed. Entertainment was smooth! Reggae was performed live by Art Crawford and Eddie Neblett with DJ Mark Xclusive. The night could not have ended until the well-known reggae song: She’s Royal was played. It was all a wonderful night filled with entertainment, raffles, decorations, great food, exquisite gowns, dancing, relaxation, appreciation, love, photos…. check out the pictures! Also stay tuned on the HopeNYC website and Facebook for their upcoming Mother’s day service!
Okay so I actually didn’t go to Paris but I stepped out of New York! I did not catch a flight or lug a tote. Here at Compass Cafe, you set foot in another country! Come in and enjoy a sip of something from overseas.
Where will you go today?
Paris? The place where you can get coffee pressed to perfection? Not to mention neon macaroons bursting with color.
Guatemala? A sip of something Spanish while being allured by its amazing aroma.
Haiti? Enjoy an aromatic earthy blend and get some energy from the Petite Goave coffee. A six year old girl from this country sparked the idea of Compass Cafe a few years ago.
Down-south? Hands-down the tastiest by Jodi Bakes
Macchiato! My favorite Italian word and very first beverage at Compass! There’s also the rich great tasting houseblend you can never go wrong with!
There is much more from many places! Where will you go today? If you enjoyed the video please LIKE and SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel! Will Appreciate it!
