The Significance of Shiloh Roast
One whiteboard. Two desks. Three Countries. Hundreds of partners. Thousands of families. Millions of coffee beans.
The Old Testament has many references to the word Shiloh. Perhaps the most common refers to the land God provided to the Israelites where the Ark of the Covenant – God’s very presence – could dwell among them. Many believe that Shiloh can be referred to as “A Place of Peace.”
It has been 10 full years since HOPE Coffee began with a brainstorming session on a whiteboard in Siguatepeque, Honduras. While not every year has been easy, God has carried us through them all. For several years now, we have known we would need to move our offices. We’ve been asking God for years to direct us and provide for us. It should have been no surprise that He did indeed provide. The name of the street where God led us? Shiloh Road.
HOPE Coffee’s ministry has never been stronger than it is today. We have grown to three countries each with their own richly-flavored coffee beans, life-changing ministry and National Ministry Leader. This year we want to celebrate all that God has done for the past 10 years with a brand new coffee: Shiloh Roast.
Shiloh is a celebration of the renewed peace that He has given to us this year, and of 10 years of ministry to families throughout Honduras, Mexico and Guatemala. Each of the mountains you see on the label represents one of these countries. This is where the coffee beans were grown, and where seeds of ministry were sown. Each location is a vital part of the flavor of this roast, just as each is a vital part of our ministry.
We hope that as you sip this new, delicious coffee you will reflect not only on the peace God has provided to HOPE Coffee and the families we minister to, but also the peace He provides you in your life, your families and your ministries through your trust in Jesus Christ – God’s son!
