It has been a while since my last post about the bakery. It’s been hard to post about because it’s been such a p-r-o-c-e-s-s, but what isn’t, right :-D.
Recently I had someone asking me about the bakery. I am super excited to go eat my first piece of bread *hopefully soon*! What will be even more exciting is seeing these young men forging and consuming the bread of life.
John recently wrote, “The oven is in its new home, a custom built concrete enclosure, right next to the bakery. Our 20 quart mixer [HAS] arrived! Soon we will begin the process of recipe development, and tying down loose ends on our exact processes as far as baking and management go. We have 12 guys selected for the program, and will most likely open our doors (or windows rather), in early May!”
Moise, pictured at the top of the blog post looking out the bakery window, is such an outstanding guy. He is defying the negative norms and stands on a solid foundation. He comes to work humbly and ready to do anything.
Josh is the genius chef of all things food! I have enjoyed his friendship and frankness. Pretty refreshing :-D. It has been so awesome to hear his ideas and thoughts for the bakery and eventually for the restaurant! I know, just surprised you with the restaurant thing in there. Umm… Heartline Ministries has a cooking school… so it almost makes sense to start a rest-au-ra-thing… but, alas, that is for another time in the future.
My very very tiny role in all of this… and to which I look forward to doing … is working with Josh in the coming days on the technology aspect of the bakery and restaurant. Especially since it is always fun and challenging living in this Haiti world of power maybe’s, internet sort-of’s, and other chutes and ladders.
