Pastor's Coffee Plants

Tiny two-branch coffee trees line a small section of land near the only water source in Barrio. Using the proposal writing skills learned in our first workshop together, Pastor Patrick was able to partner with the Ugandan government to plant and grow coffee trees. Once those trees get to a specific size, the government will purchase them from him and renew the contract.

Sometimes it takes a while – Uganda is still running on its own time – but I love seeing the fruit so generously poured out over the people who take seriously the teaching received by Surprised by Hope and their responsibility in the “Divine-human cooperation” equation.
