Buy coffee. Help Kenya.

Click on the link "Right Hand Coffee"-- a portion of your purchases will go to support the medical clinic in Gatab, Kenya. 25% for coffee. 10% for tea.

My wonderful friend Nellie is responsible for making all this happen, and here is what she has to say:

"The Icarus Collective at Cedarville University has been working hard to raise money for Ben Huntley's work at Gatab's clinic in Kenya. Well, I'm happy to report that, due to your generosity, we've already sent 190.00 to Kenya, which will help provide much-needed medication to a community currently without adequate healthcare. Considering the drought in Kenya, too, I'm especially thankful for all your support in this. Ben emailed me yesterday and said that Sawaya, a friend of his from the village, was "overjoyed." Some German missionary friends of his from the village also expressed to him that the clinic has been in a bad way--even being forced to lay off some of their nurses. Considering they've been without a doctor on staff for a long time anyway, this is not good. So every little bit you gave helped tremendously!
I have even more good news: Taylor Minor has decided to let us become a permanent brand at Stoney Creek! It's our hope to continue to support Ben's work in staffing and stocking rural clinics.

Don't forget, too, that Taylor's entire store supports The Luke Commission, a medical mission in Swaziland, and the family buys all of their beans at a fair price, helping rural growers in the Third World support their families. What can I say? The Minor family is awesome--honest local business people. Especially the grandpa, Ernest. :-) He's my favorite.
Thanks again for buying so much coffee during December. Seriously. Thank you. You have no idea how far 190.00 goes in saving lives. :-) May God bless you and keep you and cause his face to shine upon you. :-) I mean it.
With much love,
