Bear Fruit Bakery shared a post on its Facebook page on Oct. 26, writing that they have been forced to close the business due to the pandemic.
"Where we go from here, I have no idea! But that's the beauty of relying on God to clear the path and shine the light for us. Every day is a new day and one step closer to our destination.
I pray that the closing of this business is used by God just as much as the opening and operating of it."
