Goodbye Ordinary

I will recount the steadfast love of the LORD, the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD has granted us. Isaiah 63:7

Just Love Coffee! October 26, 2009

Filed under: Adoption — Lori @ 9:33 am

Family PortraitI don’t know if you have heard of Just Love Coffee, but it is a wonderful organization that helps you raise money for your adoption. 

If you click on the link to purchase coffee, you will be buying it from our store.  With every purchase of a bag of coffee beans, you will be contributing $5.00 to our adoption!

You won’t just be helping us when you purchase the coffee.  Read a bit about the company:

Rob Webb knows coffee.  When Rob was two years old, his father started Webb’s Coffee Service, which blossomed into a full-blown refreshment service supplying businesses in Nashville, TN and the surrounding areas, and is now run by Rob.

Rob Webb knows the adoption process.  In the summer of 2008, Rob and his wife Emily were called to adopt from Ethiopia. After much prayer and discussion with their first two children they started their adoption journey in August 2008. During the flurry of paperwork and preparation, Rob & Emily read books not only on adoption in general, but specifically on Ethiopia. Learning that Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee caught Rob’s attention, and after reading about the living conditions and wages of the average coffee farmer, he was compelled to take action. What developed through his reading and his trip to Ethiopia to unite with his daughters was a realization that he could combine his expertise and longstanding desire to roast his own coffees with his desire to help others.  Just Love Coffee Roasters was born!  Roasting Fair Trade Specialty coffees, Just Love uses proceeds to help an Ethiopian orphanage and families adopting not just from Ethiopia, but from anywhere in the world.

So, you are actually helping out not only our family, but an orphanage in Ethiopia, and the coffee growers in the countries of Ethiopia, Rawanda, and Guatemala.  There are quite a few different kinds of coffees to choose from. 

Not only is today the first day of our online store – it is the first day for Just Love Coffee – they just launched!  They ask that you be patient – there may be glitches.

It is an easy way to be involved and help us fund our adoption.  We appreciate your participation.

You can use the links in this post, but there will also be a link in the right sidebar.

Have a great day!  Lori
