Andrew Loveall -- New Hope for Guatemala

(from www.newhopeforguatemala.com)
In 1999, Andrew Loveall went on a short-term mission trip that changed his life. Feeling a divine call on his life, he quit his job and moved his family to Guatemala, working with a clinic serving the desperately poor who scavenge at Guatemala City's massive municipal dump. There he began to encounter Guatemala's street children. Their needs overwhelmed him.

Thousands of kids live on the streets. Incredibly, they are not abandoned, but come from destitute families who send their youngsters - as young as five - to beg and make money in tourist towns such as at Antigua and Quetzaltenango. There they shine shoes, sell souvenirs and serve as tour guides. Many are victimized by those who take advantage of children. Few go to school. Often they are detested by local officials - particularly for coming from rural, indigenous Mayan tribes.

Over the next decade, Andrew developed a unique "business model" of working with local officials to establish schools, clinics and other infrastructure in partnership with generous friends from the United States. Once established, the schools become eligible for funding through the Guatemalan ministry of education - and do not need as much help from America. A mentoring program also developed - with Andrew giving key youth leadership roles in local projects. Today some of the fruit of Andrew's work can be seen in New Hope for Guatemala's staff members Luis Hernandez, Josue Esteban and Geovani Pichillo.

Next Chapter Ministries -- Rochester, Minnesota

(from www.nextchapterrochester.org)
Next Chapter Ministries began to form in 1991 when Andy Kilen, the current Director, started volunteering in the Olmsted County Jail, leading Bible Studies once a week. During these Bible studies, it became apparent that many of the inmates wanted and needed further help after they were released. Statistically, these inmates' need for help was very real, as two-thirds of released prisoners are today rearrested within three years.

Because of this need, and after much prayer and planning, the Network For Life group was created, bringing together released prisoners and church members in a weekly Bible Study/support group. It was from these initial small group meetings that Next Chapter Ministries formed, becoming an official non-profit organization in 2000. Today, Next Chapter Ministries has grown to include three residential aftercare homes, support for families of prisoners, a youth center for high risk teenagers, and an outreach for children.

Next Chapter Ministries is a member of the Christian Assocation of Prison Aftercare (CAPA), which was established to provide training and encouragement to organizations that serve former offenders and families.

Some of the local businesses that proudly serve Narrow Road Coffee

"But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." - Matthew 7:14 (NIV)

Narrow Road Coffee was founded in 2009 by Jaren Vande Kieft and Chris Williams on one guiding principle, to sell high quality coffee and donate a large portion of the revenue to support Christian missionaries around the world.

Many people will never have a chance to hear the good news of Jesus Christ unless a missionary brings this message to them. The easiest thing we can do is take a portion of the money already being spent on something simple like coffee and send it to these missionaries. Narrow Road Coffee does just that. When you purchase coffee here, 25% of the proceeds is sent directly to these servants. This financial support keeps them on the ground, leading more people to Christ and to salvation.
