Love is Courage!

Our Community Meal last night was beautiful! About 140 people enjoyed Caribbean tostadas and a delicious melon salad courtesy of Jardin de Milagros, Chef James, and our wonderful volunteers. It was so much fun to visit with friends, old and new. In the energy and sweetness of the evening, God spoke to my heart. He did it through a conversation with one of our guests. I asked her, “What is the Lord was teaching you right now?” She looked at me, with quiet resolve in her eyes, and said, “It’s easy to hate, but love is courage.”

Our free summer meal program for kids ended on August 4th. What a day that was!
The kids took the stage to perform their version of the Good Samaritan story! A beautiful folkloric dancer came to share her smile and traditional dances. And the Braden Aboud Memorial Foundation gave us 20 backpacks to give to the kids!

Interns Visit Artist Gaspar Enriquez

Mustard Seed Cafe and Ciudad Nueva are partnering on an internship program this summer!
It is our desire to invest time, love and energy in these students so that they grow in confidence and are better prepared for life as flourishing, young adults. Last week our interns and their program coordinator spent the morning with renowned El Paso artist Gaspar Enriquez. They visited his home, his studio, and an ancient adobe building he’s restoring in the 400-year-old presidio of San Elizario in El Paso’s Mission Valley.
