Maria del Carmen: The Warrior Woman

May 12, 2022

Maria del Carmen's first dream in life came true at 12 years old when she got her first ever pair of shoes. Raised by loving but deeply impoverished parents, she never had an opportunity for an education and began trekking five hours daily with her siblings to try to sell eggs or corn and hopefully be able to survive to the next day.

Fortunes of the Land Restored

Fortunes of the Land Restored

We thank God that not a single person was injured, not a single structure was lost,  and all of our coffee was spared.  It was literally as if there was a wall around our coffee, the fire came right to the edge of the fields and didn’t cross over.  Nor did the old tress that shade our coffee get burned.  We don’t have an explanation, other than God protected this business that is doing so much to transform lives now, and for eternity, on this mountain. 

Coffee trees in our region bloom once a year, in mid to late April.  For only about 24 hours the mountain looks almost as if it has snowed and then quickly it starts to go away.  And almost like a sign from God, the bloom started on much of our farm yesterday.  These coffee plants remind me of how God can make all things new, as it says in Jeremiah 33:11 “For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were before,’ says the Lord.”
