So what does Haiti have to do with growing coffee in East Asia? Absolutely nothing, except that I just returned from a mission trip to there. It was a great opportunity to meet some small needs there, see the church in a different culture, and see another part of the world. Even years after the earthquake, there are still so many needs to meet there. One of the things that stood out to me the most was the similarity between impoverished people, even on opposite sides of the world. The architecture, language, and faces may change, but village poor in one part of the world looks very similar to village poor in another. It was also heartbreaking to see that, in such an evangelized nation, there are still so many who did not grasp the basic message of the gospel. More than anything for me though, Haiti reminded me of the calling to reach the unreached peoples of East Asia through working with our partners here at Underground Coffee International.
