Let's recreate the idea of a Christian restaurant and make it unique.....

Translate This Page

     Imagine our restaurant, with the finest dishes, served in an elegant setting at our event center in one of our beautiful gardens, or in our spacious house. Chefs who have trained at our chef school, and staff with years of banqueting service in the most prestigeous events here in Guatemala. Our Wait staff who are not afraid to say praise the Lord and God bless, and above all offer great service to all who come into our restaurant. Bible verses on the wall and sprinkled over the top of their cappuccino with cinnamon...okay grated chocolate. A gift shop with coffee, art work, hand crafts from children’s homes in the area on consignment, coffee mugs, our own seed covered coffee sleeves that you can throw on the grown after use to grow flowers vegetables or a tree. T-shirts,  well know authors. Discounts for pastors who bring groups for a bible study in one of our gardens, don’t be embarrassed to pray, lead a prayer or chorus on our grounds. Birthdays will be a real blessing for our visitors, not only to hear a festive round of birthday songs from wait staff, but then people joining around to pray for the person to make that one year older a great memory. At your table a flag that you can raise for quick service for refill or some delicious fresh homemade pies. Each table will have a small box where prayer requests can be filled out where our staff will take time to pray for them every Friday live at 2:00pm. A mural on the wall for prayer requests and testimonies’, Live Praise and worship music is the high point of our coffee shop restaurant....raising you hands in praise is permitted and encouraged, I sure will. Song karaoke competitions on Friday night and yearly competitions bringing this back from my old radio days with KXOJ talent night in conjunction with radio stations to play their songs as a grand prize. Our school garden will play a role with fresh salads displayed at our in-house garden picked fresh from garden to plate, impossible to have a salad fresher. Your children can go off and play under the supervision of bible school workers, for hand crafts and to make sure family atmosphere is not just a phrase. Coloring pages for children all with a Biblical theme. Children’s menu with fun biblical food titles...how about a Jonah fish sandwich,  Christian movies on the t.v. screens with family values. A Christian library full of special pamphlets, books to read while drinking a cup of coffee or specialty drinks...... Above all let's lift up the Lord in all we do, in love, always respecting those around us!

      We are working hard to transition our ministry from a donation based ministry to a sustainable ministry. Each new business undertaking makes our ministry stronger, sustainable, empowers the community where we live, takes care of our personal needs without continued donations from the States, and allows us to disciple in new ways. The benefits are immediate and rewarding as we see families breaking the chains of poverty and embracing the gospel of Christ. Currently, all of our budgeted funds are allocated for our students and their needs at our school of 250 students at Camino al Cielo. Many students are receiving financial help through our sponsorship program from generous people at Commonground Church in bridge city Tx. through Childrens HopeChest Guatemala, and our event center.

     Everything is in place. After many years of operating a successful event center we are starting the next step. WE have studied the demographics, worked on our business plan. There is no debt or mortgage, We have chef's in place to teach classes after hours at our school, and practice in an actual restaurant.

     We need your help with startup costs (Below) to move this from an idea, to reality. We invite you to look at our list of items needed, and prayerfully take part in our Goal. Thank you for your prayers and your tax deductible gifts. With your help we will be announcing our grand opening soon!

     We have some items in our school cafeteria store that we will be moving up to the restaurant. This will give us an extra classroom to accept more children at our school. The items below are what we are in need of. We will slowly be filling the page with start up items. After the start we will be able to purchse items from the earning of our restaurant. I will be updating the Thermometers daily and will be mentioning your gift. Please allow me to mention your gift because the people here need to see that achievements are not without great sacrifices and this is the example that you are making for them to follow. I plan on a having a partnership recognition plaquette made by our water fountain as recognition of gifts $100 and above. I know, I do not like letting others see what I have done either, but we need to teach that generosity is to be continued through example. 

Thank you! **Dani and Doug Moyer....What a blessing!**

I changed the machine that we are purchasing to a more economical model. After start up we will save for a more industrial machine.
