We’d like you to meet HOPE Coffee’s National Ministry Team.
HOPE Coffee is passionate about sharing the love of Jesus. We believe God has called us to Serve Better in the way that we serve the farmers who grow our coffee, our customers, and also the people who live where HOPE Coffee is grown. By meeting basic needs for families in crisis, we are able to share the love of Jesus in a very real way. Whether it is a new home for a family in Honduras, water filters for several families in Mexico, or education for children in Guatemala, each project is led by local pastors who want to serve their communities better. National Ministry Leaders in Honduras, Mexico and Guatemala oversee the ministry projects, making sure that the pastors have everything they need to properly care for the family in need.
We would like to introduce you to our National Ministry Leaders, who are carrying out the ministry of HOPE Coffee one family at a time.
National Ministry Team Leader: HOPE Coffee, Mexico
Abelardo, his wife Sandra, and his two daughters, Vania and Anita live in the Puebla region of Mexico. They are very active in Saddleback Church at Puebla City. Abelardo and Sandra can be found serving in the Sunday worship services with their daughters. They also lead a small group during the week. Abelardo is passionate about reaching the least served in Mexico with the love of Jesus!
National Ministry Team Leader: HOPE Coffee, Honduras
Carlos lives in Santa Barbara, Honduras with his wife, María. He and Maria, along with their five children are all very involved in ministry and missions both within Honduras and abroad. Carlos and María have a deep family history of coffee farming, so when the opportunity came to combine both coffee and ministry, they were very excited!
Executive Director: Lan Vwa School, Guatemala
Karina and her daughter Ily live in Guatemala City, Guatemala where Karina serves as the Executive Director of Lan Vwa. Karina is the daughter of Armando and Norma Leiva, the Direct Trade coffee farmers who grow HOPE Coffee’s Guatemalan Light and Guatemalan Medium roasts. Through Lan Vwa, Karina is able to help provide opportunities for the children of coffee farmers who did not previously have access to education in this way. While Karina is not a formal staff member of HOPE Coffee, every purchase of HOPE Coffee helps support Lan Vwa. Read more about the impact Lan Vwa is having on families in Guatemala.
