This past month has been a time of re-vamping for us. I needed to take a step back, and take time out to get closer to God concerning the future of A Cup Of Faith and what it holds.
There were many questions concerning the focus, the heart of this Business and Ministry.
Why we are here?
What is our purpose?
What is the mission, the drive, the focus the HEART behind this Business and Ministry?
If we don't have these answers, it will just be another Coffee Roasting Company, and we have put everything on hold until we got the answers, no matter how long it took.
I am happy to say I believe we are getting the answers we were seeking! The focus, the drive behind why we are here, and the heart of A Cup Of Faith is being revealed, and we are working to adjust A Cup Of Faith and it's Mission statement accordingly. Of course, God will always be the main focus, and His love for everyone!
All I can say, for now, is that I am personally very excited about the direction we are taking, and the heart behind what we do and why.
We will reveal more when we have all the pieces in place, and I'm sure you will be just as excited as we are.
Thank you for you're continued patients, and support during these transitions!

I was on Facebook today and saw this article. It talks of Christians going to the Gay Pride Parade in Chicago, having on t-shirts with, "I'm sorry" and signs with the same message for judging.
This is true LOVE!
God NEVER told us to go around judging anyone, or condemning ANYONE! We have our own issues, our own faults we need to deal with, within ourselves!
I am truly thrilled, to see a healing begin between Christians, asking for forgiveness, for something they may have done, or not.
That is a hard task, but love never fails!
There are so many hardships going on all around the world.
Maybe you have been struggling,
maybe the only thing you have been feelings you think you have is sadness, hurt, let down, abandoned,... hopelessness.
Maybe you are wondering where God is,...
maybe you are even upset with Him, wondering why He hasn't stepped in and fixed everything.
He said, "Be strong, courageous, and
firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your
God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6 AMP.
He has not left you.
He has not abandoned you.
Ha has not turned His back on you.
Get alone with Him, go somewhere quiet, soften your heart towards Him. He loves you with an everlasting love!
"The Lord appeared from of
old to me [Israel], saying, Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting
love; therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you and continued My
faithfulness to you." Jeremiah 31:3 AMP.
"Therefore also now,
says the Lord, turn and keep on coming to Me with all your heart, with
fasting, with weeping, and with mourning [until every hindrance is
removed and the broken fellowship is restored].
your hearts and not your garments and return to the Lord, your God, for
He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in
loving-kindness; and He revokes His sentence of evil [when His
conditions are met]." Joel 2:12-13 AMP
Don't give up on God,
because He has NEVER given up on you.
We are more than willing to pray for anyone.
Notice we said FOR anyone,... not against.

Here is a song that really speaks to my heart, "Let Faith Arise!" by Chris Tomlin
Blessings to you and your Family.
Just a great message from Jesse Duplantis!
It's that time of year again.
The falling leaves, the cooler weather, a crackling fire,
and the gathering of good Friends and Family.
We gather to celebrate Thanks Giving and Christmas during these colder months, but a lot of Christians have forgotten about, (and many don't even know about) The Feasts, which are God's appointed times for celebration.
If you are unaware of these special Feasts, I would encourage you to get the book, "Seven Blessings Of The Atonement" by Steve Munsey.
This is a important part of our Christian walk with God, and this is the time of year that it starts!
"1. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts
of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these
are my feasts." Leviticus 23:1-2
This book is filled with eye opening information, deeper relationship with God, as well as gives us a much better understanding of what Jesus did for us through His life, death and resurrection.
Truly, one of my favorite books, as well as many others.
Don't miss this important event!

I saw this today, and thought it was very fitting.
"While we remember the attack
of 911, we must above all remember the Lord our God. He is our
Strength. To forget Him is to be weak & defenseless. He is our
Comforter. To forget Him is to remain in grief. He is our hope. To
forget Him is to...
embrace despair. He is our Victory. To forget Him is to lay our future
at the enemy's feet. From the Lord comes honor. Without Him, honor for
our heroes fades and we will soon forget." - Terri Copeland Pearsons
As we come into my favorite time of the year, I am eager to fill the orders that are already coming in for Fall festivals, as well as Thanks Giving and Christmas!
The orders that came in last year kept us really busy, and I expect nothing less this year.
I have had Coffee Trees for some time now, and over the years I have had to give some up and then replace them later on. My personal ones I have now are about eight years old and have not produced Cherries,.. it least until recently!
I spoke with a good friend that I met while attending Boots Coffee Roasting School last year. He is a Coffee Farmer from Hawaii. After being inspired by his video of his Farm, I decided to make some changes to the way I have been taking care of our Coffee Trees. This small change has produced our very first Cherries! They are very small at this time, but should be fully developed by May. Cherries take a full nine months to fully develop, and each one carries two prized Coffee beans in each, unless they become a 'peaberry' Coffee bean.
I believe I will be changing the care instructions that we include with the Coffee Trees that we sell to include the changes we have made and have seen great results from. If you have purchased a Coffee Tree seedling from us in the past, please feel free to 'Contact Us' and ask for the updated instructions. We will gladly email them to you!
We currently have some seedlings that are doing very well, and should be ready for sale by November. Please go to our 'Contact Us' link and ask us to add you to our News Letter to receive information about specials, recipes and items for sale.
Still very small, this Cherry will be fully developed by May 2012!
I want to thank every one of our Customers for supporting us at A Cup Of Faith Coffee Roasting Company. Because of your purchases, you have made it possible for us to donate Coffee to Hope Faith Ministries in Kansas City Missouri! They are a homeless shelter with such love for their guests as I have never seen. When we donate Coffee to them, that money can be used for other necessities for the homeless. In fact, they are working towards offering dental work for their homeless guests! WOW!!
From what I understand, their guests have been very pleased with our Coffee, and refer to it as "The good stuff"! Thank you!
If you have noticed, we are currently not offering our Blends at this time. I promise you, they will be back soon. We are re-ordering some Coffee for these Blends that should arrive quickly. When they do, we will have our Blends back up on our website. In the meantime, we are offering our Single Origin Coffees. Single Origin Coffees are a particular Coffee from one place and one type where as Blends are a blend of Coffees from two or more different areas of the world.
Our Single Origin Coffees are still 100% Arabica Coffees, Organic and Fair Trade, using high grade beans and Roasted by a person, not a computer. Hand written dates on the package tells you the Roasted On Date. We want you to know how fresh your Coffee is!
With Fall less than a month away, I am truly looking forward to the cooler weather, a crackling fire, and the gathering of Friends and Family.
I am especially looking forward to seeing our Soldiers come home form Iraq. Words cannot express how proud we are of you, all of you. To all the Soldiers who have made it home, and who have given their lives, to the Veterans and POW's, thank you for defending the Freedom so many take for granted.
Feel free to copy this photo and put it somewhere where you can see it daily to remind you about The Name above ALL names!
A 5 pound bag of Coffee to Hope Faith Ministries. This is just one of many needed each week.
This bag, and others will be the first of many to be given, starting tomorrow!
I found this video by Hope Faith Ministries and wanted to share it. This is why we do what we do. We are donating our Coffee to the shelter to help free up monies that could go towards other essential needs for the homeless.
When you purchase our Coffee, you are helping someone in need.
