Drink Coffee. Do Good.

Last month Pastor Todd and I went to Catalyst in Atlanta and had a blast. Some of the best things about Catalyst are the connections that are made, the information that is learned, and the ministries that we learn about.

One of those ministries is Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee. In a nutshell (or should I say, coffee bean), this is a company that invests some of it's profits back into Rwanda, where they get their coffee. You can read about that here.

We drink coffee in our Sunday School class, so this week we are making the switch. The coffee that we will be drinking will be helping people in Rwanda. If the folks are interested, we can place orders every so often where for the folks to have the coffee at home (or even work).

I just think that we need to have a missional mindset. I know this is a small thing, but I just like the idea that the coffee that we drink can make a direct impact in lives on the ground where the coffee was harvested. That's awesome!

Our shipment just arrived - I'm pretty pumped! Now there's a little something extra to look forward to this Sunday!
