Our business plan for Java Journey called for 36% of our budget to be used for upfitting. We are at a critical point since we have the remainder of our savings plus an equity line. There is nothing else to draw on to get started for the first year. A personal loan offer we thought we could use has now been withdrawn. That was a tiny setback today.

Then we had a zinger of a reality shock this morning. The initial 2 estimates of architect & contractor will require about 127% of the budget. Needless to say, we're both disappointed and fighting off discouragement. From a human standpoint the passon and vision looks like a misguided pipedream presently. We were informed that we would have these moments. This is a most challenging one. Please pray earnestly for us.


He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.
-1 Cor 1:8&9
