December 14, 2013: Berkeley, CA
Fourteen of our staff gathered for our first general meeting. Members from New York, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area united in person or via web conference. Our team has grown so big, so quickly this year that some members met each other for the first time that day. Our meeting was very productive, followed by a photo shoot at the cafe, lunch at the Cheese Board Collective, filming of our promotional video at the Berkeley Rose Garden, and then dessert at Fentons Creamery. When each and every one of our staff members recalled their inspiration for joining STL, we were reminded that it was not by accident, but by God's will. Our operations are expanding here in the US, Taiwan, and the Philippines next year and it is evident that all these graces are bestowed upon us by our Lord. We count our blessings and pray for continued courage and strength. God bless and Merry Christmas.
