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.

Slowing Down

January 19, 2017

Slowing Down

My drive to the cafe this morning from the west side was slow as it often is these days. The traffic is “horrendous” and a great inconvenience. Before the days of these massive road projects, I would enter the freeway and speed towards downtown focused only on myself and what waited for me at work. But something interesting happened today as I inched along. I chose the inside lane for my torturous, start-and-stop journey. And I noticed something that I’d never noticed before.

FRIENDS OF THE MUSTARD SEED CAFE

Thank You Lord for the students, teachers, and families of El Paso Country Day School! Several weeks ago, an enthusiastic group of students came to the Mustard Seed Cafe. The cafe and garden became their classroom as they applied math and science to our day-to-day operations. The students can’t stop talking about the cafe, so one family is giving back to the Mustard Seed Cafe this Christmas. The family is hosting a fundraiser at their home featuring beautiful Christmas lights and hot cocoa! Thank you for being our friends and supporting our ministry!

Burk Williams was one of our most committed and consistent volunteers! He said this, "“I was out looking for a sandwich and ran into customers of the Mustard Seed, and found out that I would be able to volunteer at the café in exchange for a meal. I had been at the SAME Café in Colorado and was familiar with how the community café works. Since I am in between jobs, I am able to be here more than just the hour. It’s been good to be with positive people in a positive atmosphere. I’m thankful for the opportunity of getting a Food Handlers Certificate. I’m learning a lot from Chef Roman and am looking forward to being employed in a restaurant somewhere here in the city.”
