Cibolo church leaders offer curbside prayers
Cibolo area church leaders gathered on Main Street in Cibolo outside St. Paul’s Evangelical Church to pray for people driving by, in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on a day set aside in his honor. Cibolo Mayor Stosh Boyle helped bring together spiritual leaders from St. Paul’s, Everyday Christian Fellowship, and Refuge Church of San Antonio in Cibolo to offer a drive-by prayer service on Jan. 18. Tables with boxes of doughnuts were set up, neon cardboard signs were drawn, and a half-dozen church members stood by, inviting passing motorists to pull over to be prayed upon. From 7-9:30 a.m., and again from 3:30-6 p.m., Boyle and the church members stood by, ready to offer prayer and words of comfort for anyone driving past. He was joined that afternoon by Refuge Church children’s pastor Sarah Uhlhorn, and church member Omar Rivera, who held signs announcing the drive-up prayer effort.mysanantonio.com

Toyota supplier to bring 900 jobs to Cibolo
CIBOLO, Texas - A supplier for Toyota and other automakers is expected to break ground in September on a new manufacturing plant in Cibolo that officials say will provide 900 full-time jobs. City Manager Robert Herrera called it "probably the largest development project that has occurred in the last 10, 15 years." That upgrade isn't a certainty yet, but Judge Nelson Wolff thinks the county's actions may have helped the Cibolo deal along. "I think the supplier, when they saw us step up, felt more confident about the long term viability of the Toyota plant here. "Those 900 people, many of them are going to live here in Bexar County," Wolff said.
