Bringing The Gospel To Troubled Youth

Bringing The Gospel To Troubled Youth: an update from a Living Hope Team in the field.

Recently we saw great gains with ministering to troubled youth at the Bosasa Youth Development Center. These kids come from rough backgrounds and they have themselves committed crimes. We were unsure of their reception to God’s Word, but as we had prepared we felt led to be bold and intentional about sharing the gospel with these youth. We met with two groups. The first group was large, rowdy and easily distracted amongst themselves. Something amazing happened, however. As our team leader announced he was going to start reading from the Word, the youth immediately began to pay attention and the distractions stopped. Our team was reminded that God’s Word has ultimate authority.

The second group was smaller and more responsive. After we presented the Word, we invited this group to stay behind to discuss and pray over whatever challenges they felt led to share. Two men stayed behind. They both shared that they had case hearings the next day. We prayed with them and felt the Holy Spirit moving as we prayed.

We ask that you too continue to pray for these youth at Bosasa. Thank you also for making a difference with your daily cup of coffee. Because of you, the Gospel is being shared with people across the globe.

The Best way to Store Coffee: Avoid these 5 Polar Bear Mistakes

Why do Polar bears brew terrible coffee? Because, like many humans, they continue storing coffee in the freezer. I know. I know. HAAAARDY HAR HAR. But it’s true. Want to learn the best way to store coffee — check out the 5 Steps to NOT Storing Coffee Like a Polar Bear.


5 Steps To NOT Storing Coffee Like a Polar Bear

1. Want the best way to store coffee? Don’t expose the beans to extreme temperatures.

Many coffee lovers mistakenly store their coffee in the freezer, thinking they are preserving the freshness of their beans. Instead, the extreme cold deteriorates the oils that gives coffee its great flavor. So, don’t store them in the freezer or the oven. That’s right the oven is just for cooking.

2. Want the best way to store coffee? Don’t expose the beans to direct sunlight.

The sun can cause the beans to fade in appearance and taste. So, keep the precious little beans in a cool, dry, and dark place. Just another step to the best way to store coffee beans.

3. Want the best way to store coffee? Don’t store your fresh roasted beans in the fridge!

The fridge will make your fresh roasted coffee stinky! Coffee is a deodorizer. If you leave it in the fridge, your coffee will absorb the flavors in your fridge. Leftover salmon. Last night’s kimchi. The carryout box with the bleu cheese burger — they’re all going to give your coffee a very different taste. But hey, if you need to get that smell out of your refrigerator, just leave a bowl of coffee beans in there. Just don’t brew them!

4.Want the best way to store coffee? Don’t expose the beans to oxygen.

Fresh roasted coffee beans are kind of like a loaf of bread. If you leave them out they’ll go stale. Stale. In fact if you don’t use them within 6 to 8 weeks they start to go stale too. Stale. Stale. Stale. So, oxygen deprivation is extremely important to maintaining the quality of your fresh roasted coffee beans. Stale.

5. Want the best way to store coffee? Don’t store your coffee in its own package.

You can store your beans in their packaging just make sure to place the packaging in an airtight zip-loc bag and keep in a cool dry place like a cupboard. Remember coffee is a bakery item. It’ll go stale if you don’t keep it sealed. So, that’s the best way to store coffee! Just another step to the best way to store coffee beans.
