And, down on the farm…

This time next week, a team from the US will be visiting our friends in Uganda. We will be at the coffee farm a few times; one day we will celebrating the impending retirement of the farm manager, Jeesca Buteraba. She has worked for CEED since 1999, managing the farm. We are grateful for Jessca, her talents and her hard work which she has given so faithfully to the coffee mission.

“I thank my God every time I remember you.  In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:3-6 (NIV)

Thank you, Jessca!!

This year…

The year 2017 started two weeks ago, and if you’re like me, the time has flown by.  We are busy with starting things new, making resolutions, cleaning up after the holidays and probably paying bills. In the midst of the busy activity, take time to take stock of your blessings, enjoy the life you’ve been given, and make some changes where they’re needed. Be able to look back in December 2017 and say to yourself’ “I’m a

__ person than I was in January.” You fill in the blank.

Have a cup of our delicious Caramel Pecan-flavored coffee while you’re thinking what that might be. For myself, I want to be a kinder, gentler person–ask me in December if I’ve managed. Or better yet, ask those have to deal with me day in and day out!

First taste of coffee!
