Fresh Oil! What did it do? (New Link)

It was a powerful weekend in Brooklyn and many received fresh oil!

Fresh Oil Conference was held at Purpose Life Church this weekend and it was both a reviving and fun time for women. If you can get on a computer to register or could have heard anything from the tent during Saturday’s session, you were not excluded.

EVERYTHING that happened in the conference would just uplift your spirit more and more. Every prayer spoken into the atmosphere, the words of the songs, every artistic act of exhortation, the special gifts, the music, every visiting guest minister, the senior pastors and of course every message that was preached! Everything that happened was carefully orchestrated by God.

Learning about physical and spiritual oil was amazing. Receiving it will leave you speechless! Many women left the conference changed with a refreshed anointed spirit.  Also with a Fresh Oil goodie bag, T-shirts, fabulous photos, raffle prize, and a bottle of anointing oil.

Don’t Bring Gifts To This Birthday Party!

This weekend, you are invited to one of the greatest birthday celebrations in New York! This Sunday is not going to be ordinary. Compass Coffee turns two years old and this birthday has been incredibly and carefully planned.

Compass is a Missions coffee shop that was created to help people in other countries get clean drinking water and rescue girls out of human trafficking through its partnership with The Zion project!

GUESS WHAT?

We will hear from the actual founder of the Zion Project: Pastor Deven Wallace. We will see her live and she will be preaching THIS Sunday at 10:30am at HopeNYC. Right after service, Compass will actually be giving you presents 🎁 as we celebrate this birthday! There will ALSO be special surprises for people who purchase a cup of coffee, dessert or item that day!

The fact that Pastor Deven will be at HopeNYC on Compass’ Birthday is not a coincidence or luck but this was indeed a divine appointment set up by God. In fact, Compass is a divine idea founded to help others and it will continue it’s mission even stronger as it steps into it’s second year! Read more about the MISSION here

Address for HopeNYC Church & Compass:

142-82 Rockaway Blvd, Jamaica NY 11414

Happy 5th of July!

The party isn’t over! The celebration of freedom still continues with patriotic colors and a cake to cut. The Freedom Cake is back at Compass! Fans had happily reunited with the cake this weekend. Just like last year, it’s going fast! Many are in love with the cake because of it’s eye-catching trio of colors on the surface and in the slices. WE are also fond of the delicious fresh homemade vanilla taste. You may find yourself back at the job today but you can continue celebrating with a satisfying slice! It tastes like a celebration any day after July 4th🎉

I lost at Monopoly

TONS of food, good music, dogs, dancing, games and the most awesome view of fireworks from the neighborhood at night. I can definitely say my fourth of July was well spent! As I walked in helping Jay deliver a large tray of chicken empanadas, we saw tables lined up with endless entrees! Pork chops, BBQ Chicken, homemade bread, pelau, turkey burgers, grilled fish, chicharon, macaroni pie, and much more! I saw people playing twister, table tennis, ludo, poker and volleyball. I sat with a group for a monopoly game. It didn’t go so well for me…I went to jail three times and had to pay somebody’s rent for almost every turn. I did come into plenty of money but it was hard to purchase properties that wasn’t already taken during my arrest. Overall I had fun loosing with good (competitive) friends. Speaking of that, two adorable friends joined us for the picnic.

Later on, we danced the night away in the church parking lot celebrating freedom!

Mom’s Crowning Moment

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!

Fun Day Fiesta

Fun day is not just a term that described our delicious Monday night adventure at Elena’s 43 , It was a significant required set aside day specially planned to celebrate an accomplishing graduating group. Who graduated? From where?
At HopeNYC, there are many groups you can join to learn skills and fellowship. These are called Hope Groups and there is one for everyone!
My husband and I were honored to teach this semester. He taught a Spanish group while I taught beginner bloggers. On Monday, the Spanish Hope Group had their fun day at a Spanish restaurant while the bloggers group joined in and captured the experience. Although our classes were not in a classroom, we exercised the skills at the restaurant. The Spanish group spoke to the waiters in Spanish and truly aimed to hold the conversation with one another. They did great! As we sat down and ate, we had great conversations and I got to know everyone else much more. I’m excited to meet with them on Sunday for church next time. We had salads served with the restaurant’s delicious dressing! Some of us enjoyed chicken while some ordered the salmon while some got the steak, or the shrimp, even the lobster! We also sipped fresh fruit smoothies, and sodas! We had a fiesta of a time with laughs and good conversation.

She’s Royal Mothers Day Dance

A Quick Trip To Paris

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.

HopeNYC Super Bowl Party

HopeNYC had its annual Super Bowl party! We viewed the game on a super-sized screen fit for a football fan.

Not into the game? Just the wings, fellowship, cozy couches and great music by DJ Mark Xclusive made it SUPER! At half time things got spicy! There was a hot wing eating contest! These wings were drenched in ghost peppers, chili peppers, Habanero and much more heat!  The snack shop had a tall menu of game day specials: wings, burgers, fries, hotdogs, nachos, chicken tenders, chips, candy and soda! I crave the wings around this time of year and got my fix with Asian and habanero and buffalo!

Spicy! Sweet! Savory! Satisfying!

These were prepared here at HopeNYC and I can say these are the best wings I’ve ever had. Everyone had a good time here. Football fans, wing lovers, children, commercial watchers….Overall everyone had the ultimate game day experience!

Who did I root for? Originally I cheered on the Falcons  from the start but although they didn’t win, I went home with a valuable  important lesson.

No matter how bad things may look from the start even if it takes as long as halftime, things can change and you can win!

Spiritually: No matter how bad things look and how short you come, God can change everything in an instant for you. Keep going!

 

 

 

Pumpkin Spice up your Waffle!

I just tried Compass Cafe’s NEWEST pumpkin swirl waffle! You can enjoy this for breakfast or anytime of the day! It’s loaded with pumpkin flavor and feels just like fall! It’s not sweet at all but you can achieve your desired sweetness by adding the amount of syrup or whipped cream that pleases you.

 

This will be nice in the morning with a pumpkin spice latte on the side.

Because of the calm atmosphere, pumpkin spice scent and appearance of the Compass cafe’ you will feel that restful rustic autumn atmosphere. You can have family time here where you can sit down share a meal and some sweets with loved ones. You can have meetings, tutor a child, complete homework of any kind, plug in your laptop …the list goes on!
