My name is Nikol Lucie Sekulová and I have been serving in Skopje, North Macedonia for almost 5 years. When I was 20 years old, I answered God's call to come serve non-Christian youth in Macedonia. I had worked for 4 years with non-Christian teenagers for a worldwide non-profit organization called Young Life. And last year, I started serving with youth in my local church "Evangelska Crkva Aerodrom." 

After almost 5 years working with young people and learning about the local culture, I realized that coffee culture plays a huge part in Macedonia. Lots of young people spend most of their time in coffee shops or in bars in the evenings. They enjoy music and dancing so places like these are great for forgetting their everyday struggles and for having great conversations. 

John 17:18 says: "As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world". 

I believe that my calling in life is to be in the world and share about the Hope we have in Jesus with people that don’t know Him. My desire is to be and serve in places where people enjoy to be. In the past year, God was opening doors to me to meet people that were without hope in life and were often using alcohol and drugs to forget about the hopelessness of their lives. In those places, I often had the best conversations about God and had the opportunity to share my testimony. 

It's been my dream for many years to open up a coffee shop in Skopje. And why a coffee shop, you may ask? I am personally a big specialty coffee lover and I would love to help this area grow in Macedonia, as it is not a big thing there yet. MAINLY though I dream for my coffee shop to be a place where I can meet non-believers on every day basis and share life with them. I wish for it to be a place for ministry. For homeless people, for young people, for my church, for youth groups, for artists, for others churches as well as for every day visitors who would enjoy just a cup of quality coffee. I hope for it to be a place where people will experience warmth and acceptance.   

I believe this coffee shop will open doors to many people and will help bring quality products which are not served in local coffee shops yet. 

Goals: 
◉ open a coffee shop and be in the world of young people 
◉ build relationship with people through what they enjoy 
◉ have a platform where to meet young people 
◉ be able to share space with youth groups or churches 
◉ space for different activities, artists 
◉ offer quality products 
◉ offer a job in the coffee shop 

This amount will help Nikol open up a business in Skopje, apply for a work visa and help buy equipment for the coffee shop. 

Be a part of Nikol’s dream and of what God’s doing in Skopje! :)
