Reaching Across Borders...
Sometimes something as common as coffee becomes a means of outreach. And, at other times, it involves something as extraordinary as travel to another continent. Our relationships with those outside the United States -whether through fair trade partnerships or physical presence - have been an ongoing source of blessings to us.
- We support the Santa Lastenia Health Clinic. In June of 2005, John G. Pearson opened this clinic as an entry point for health care that serves approximately 4,000 people living in an isolated area of north-central Nicaragua. The clinic attracts locals from 10 or 11 villages within walking distance, the closest being 25 km away.
- We support Young Life Nicaragua by sending mission teams to work with Nicaraguan Young Life leaders at La Finca (The Farm). We also support Young Life Nicaragua with financial contributions.
- Several times a year, we sell Beyond Beans Coffee, available at www.beyondbeanscoffee.com. All proceeds from the sale directly benefit Young Life Nicaragua.
- Our partnership with Young Life and the Health Clinic is an ongoing two-way relationship. Faith, health, and wholeness are strengthened in Murfreesboro and in Nicaragua.
