GIVEAWAY 

DRAWING STARTS

APRIL 20th

Abundant Life is giving away 1 pound of coffee

About Abundant Life Coffee:

Abundant Life Coffee is a family owned coffee importing business committed to bringing economic opportunity to the Lenca Indians in Honduras. In partnership with Frontline Missions we provide them with start-up capital and training so that they can grow their own coffee on their own land.

Abundant Life Coffee is strictly high grown specialty grade washed Arabica

The Lenca have been trapped in a cycle of poverty and dependency for generations because of low wages and seasonal work. These conditions force them into accepting loans from others with very unfavorable terms. Our goal is to help free as many Lenca as possible from this cycle of poverty and dependency by giving them the opportunity to become coffee producers themselves. All of the Honduran coffee we import is premium grade specialty 100% Arabica, shade grown at 5,000′ elevation, hand picked and all naturally grown. No harsh chemicals or pesticides are used in the farming process so our coffee is both healthy and environmentally friendly. Rich in Flavor, Enriching Lives is more than a catchy phrase. We provide specialty coffee that is rich in flavor because it is among the best coffee available from Honduras. The lives of the Lenca Indians are enriched because now they produce their own coffee and receive full compensation for their efforts. This allows them to provide for their families and properly maintain their farms. When you purchase our coffee you are doing more than simply getting a great bag of coffee, you are becoming a partner with us in our mission to provide a more abundant life to the Lenca Indians.

About the owner, Greg Hines:

I am the owner of Abundant Life Coffee Group, LLC and a missionary to Honduras. The mission is to bring economic opportunity and spiritual hope to the Lenca Indians in Honduras. One village, one family at a time, we are changing lives with coffee.ourstory Abundant Life Coffee purchases and imports only the top quality specialty coffee grown by family farmers in the mountains of Honduras. We pay the growers the highest price possible to ensure they receive compensation that greatly exceeds the Fair Trade minimum wage. My desire to bring economic relief grew out of the relationships I built with many of the Lenca starting in 2009. I learned that they are hard working people, and most of them own a small piece of land; they simply lack the resources to start and maintain their own farming businesses. By helping them start their own farms and telling them about Jesus we bring them hope for better life now and for eternity.

I wanted to go to Hawaii for a long time and last fall we finally made it. It lived up to all my expectations and I'd love to go back!

My childhood was very low tech. We didn't even have a TV until I was 8!

Oh, how great! I'm so glad that you were able to go on your dream vacation! Fun note about your low tech house. I bet the only thing you had to fight over was the home phone! Grin!

High tech was not a thing growing up. We had a phone with a party line, it was rotary dial. Making a call cost if you wanted to talk to someone out of your area. Now I have a cell phone, computer,  a kindle...wow how the times have changed! I cannot imagine not having a computer to communicate with others. I guess the tech world did not influence my life, because I grew with the advances. Lucky me, right. Have a wonderful Easter!

Kind of crazy to think how phones and charges were before cell phones. I never would have imagined so much would change in so little a time period. Thanks Kim! Happy Easter to you too!

4. I learned about giving to others by watching my mom. Even though we didn't have much, she always seemed to have something for someone else. I remember in 3rd grade we were to bring 25 cents to school for our Christmas gift. Everyone had the money except one boy named James. I went home crying because James would not get a gift. My mom gave me the 25 cents for James even though, at that time, 25 cents was a VERY big deal. The end of the story is that James SHOULD have been able to afford the money, his dad had a good job but drank it all away but my mom didn't want me upset nor another child to be left out and gave what we really didn't have. I learned a lot that day and many other times after this.

Thanks for sharing that heart-warming story. You have a very thoughtful and giving mom.

My biggest responsibility at 7 years old were my own lambs to take care of. They had to be fed twice a day, watered (by carrying buckets) and exercised. They were a 4-H project and I treasured those ribbons I won.

Oh, wow, that is a big deal. How did you like doing that?  What was involved in the care?

I was given the chore of washing the family dinner dishes when I was growing up. I was around seven years old and the apartment we lived in had an old deep farmhouse type sink. I had to stand on a cola crate in order to reach in and wash the dishes. It remained my job for many years while I still lived at home with my parents. We never owned an automatic dishwasher.

Good memories Gail. 

We looked forward to being able to move closer to our grandchildren for several years but couldn't do so until my husband was able to retire. We now enjoy watching them grow up and sharing their lives. It definitely lived up to expectations!

What a joy to watch and participate in your grandkids lives!
