In the summer of 2013, a small group of students and adults from Church of the Palms embarked on an exploratory trip to determine whether a partnership with Vida Joven (Young Life) Nicaragua would be fruitful in fulfilling the mission of making disciples. We were all overwhelmed by the incredible work and ministry of Vida Joven. In the summer of 2014, students and adults from Church of the Palms continued to nuture the partnership we have made by making their way to Nicaragua once again. We look forward to continuing this relationship through not only annual trips, but support through coffee sales.
From seed to toasted bean, this award winning coffee is produced at La Finca, the Young Life Camp in the mountains of Nicaragua. This coffee is beyond simply beans. La Finca pays their coffee farmers a dignified wage, beyond what the market pays. And the coffee is beyond fair trade because every penny of profit sends a Nicaraguan young person to their Young Life camp AND supports the sending of our Church of the Palms students to La Finca for mission work. In fact, one pound of coffee sends a kid to camp for one day! Your purchase of this coffee not only supports Vida Joven, but also helps support the financial needs of our students who will be joining us on this trip.
