These past few weeks have been very exciting!
The Lord showed us a Ministry here in the Kansas City, Missouri area. He brought it to our attention during last winter. There was just something about it, and I knew A Cup Of Faith was to be in partnership with them.
If you would recall, I wrote about them in the beginning stages of this Blog. The Ministry is called, Hope Faith Ministries, a homeless shelter which not only feeds 750 to 800 people daily, but also provides assistance, medicine, daily shuttle runs to hospital and shelters, Computer Lab / Job searches, Daily Bible Studies, Clothing, and so much more.
My Family and I visited the Shelter and were in awe of the peace that filled the building! People were truly happy, smiling and comfortable enough to sleep anywhere they could. No one seemed in distress, worried or anxious.
The people working were also very happy and so polite. It was truly a blessing to go an see.
I found out that they spent about $1,000.00 on Coffee every month for their guests.
When I mentioned that I was the Owner of a Coffee Roasting Company, their eyes lit up! But I was ahead of them. The Lord had put it on my heart to donate Coffee to them before we visited.
I struggled with this order that the Lord gave me. Our cost would be much greater to provide what they need.
Yes, that could only be from the Lord. Something to make up 'step out of the boat' and onto the waters being tossed by the storm.
Every time He has told me to do something, it looked naturally, impossible.
Many times I would drag my feet, or wonder if I had heard something I thought up. I would sometimes argue with Him, telling Him that I could not do it. (Not real bright. lol)
Over the months, we have talked, and kept in touch. I still wavered with this request from God, until one day I just made a decision to OBEY and just do what He asked.
A few days ago, Hope Faith Ministries called me, and said they are ready to get, "Some of your wonderful Coffee!" I had to laugh since I knew that this lady did not even drink Coffee. But it's the thought that counts.
Starting this weekend, we will be donating over 420 pounds of Coffee each month to Hope Faith Ministries. As I'm sure you can imagine, this can sound a bit unnerving, but unlike people, God can think 'outside the box'. He already had a plan.
He sent another Ministry our way last week called, "Fresh Cup Ministries". Pamela was looking for A Roaster, to use for their own Coffee brand. He brought Pamela across our path, and after meeting, decided to use us as their Roaster!
Why am I telling you this?
I want you to know that every time you purchase Coffee from A Cup Of Faith, and Fresh Cup Ministries, you are sowing into Hope Faith Ministries, helping to free up that money that was once used for Coffee, but can now be used for food, clothing, medicine, or any of the other services or items they give to such needy people!
I am truly happy about this partnership, and am looking forward to all that will be done through the love, care, physical and Spiritual feeding of these people!
Thank you for supporting A Cup Of Faith Coffee Roasting Company and our Ministry to help others in need.
