Ever heard of it?
Check it out: www.mochaclub.org. It’s this cool organization that offers the opportunity for us to make a real difference by giving up just two mochas a month! A $7 committment goes toward a worthwhile project in Africa.
I think most of us can affort that.
Africa. What types of images does that word conjure up in YOUR mind? For me, I imagine an expanse of undeveloped wildland. Animals, like nothing I can see here where I live. Beautiful trees and grasslands. The way God made it.
I also know that God is there, among the people. Many Africans are living in His Joy, experiencing His Love, spreading His Peace. My mom and my father-in-law have seen this first hand in Kenya.
Of course, Africa has it’s environmental issues and social problems, but I long to go there to witness the other side. I know I’d be changed profoundly. I know I would want to go back.
Do you feel me?
I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments. (Or, if you have a blog, write a post about it!) The Mocha Club is taking up a new cause to change the image of Africa from pity to partnership.
Come back on December 1st to learn more…
