Ok.. here’s an organization that blends two of my favorite passions – global missions and coffee. I love this ministry and what they do! Back in 2010 I attended a Passion conference in Atlanta and bought some coffee from the Land of a Thousands Hills Coffee Company booth. As I was drinking my coffee, I got to check out what they are all about. Buying coffee from these guys goes to help sustain a community in Rwanda. They partner with some of the farmers and local leaders in the communities to actually sell their coffee here in the U.S. locally. Rwanda is still recovering from the genocide of 1994 and this is one the great causes helping to assist the recovery efforts. I love when organizations use our simple pleasures of life to make a difference in the world.

A rep from Land of a Thousand Hills contacted me a couple of years back to try to set up an account with the church cafe I was a barista at. Even though I wasn’t able to get that going (they opt for the expensive Starbucks crap.. blaa), but I’ve always maintained contact with them. I was excited when Do Good Initiative contacted me this week and ask me to come to Africa this summer. I have much to pray about this, but feel blessed to at least be approached by them. This past month has been amazing with God opening doors to get back onto the field and re-engage my heart for culture and justice. I love the cause behind this organization and it presents a whole new opportunity for me. Drink Coffee.. Do Good!
