Thirsty?


Soooo today Madison and I went to get her lunch at QFC before school.  She grabbed an Odwalla drink and this caught my eye... So, I bought it, I drank it (it was YUMMY ) and then I started researching it! ...Just because I was SO curious that you could buy a beverage and the Coca Cola Company would give 100% of the profits of the purchase of this drink go back to the Haitian Farmers and the Haitian Community - the Haitian PEOPLE! WOW! I think that's pretty COOL! Here is a little more information about it: HAITI HOPE MANGO LIME-AID
What do you think? If you were thirsty, would you buy it?

We met some REALLY AMAZING people in Kenya who serve in a ministry there called PLANTING FAITH

Planting Faith Ministries, Inc. works to spread the
good news of Jesus Christ in East Africa by
helping
to raise
the economic level of farmers from
subsistence to sustainability.

After purchasing this beverage - I couldn't help but think about this family... and the AMAZING things they are doing there to spread the Good News of JESUS CHRIST and to help the local Kenyan farmers/people learn to make a profit off of their land - and live on more than $1 a day!  We were so blessed to have this AMAZING family show us what they were doing.  ...We visited one of the passion fruit farms that many of the farmers were working hard on, we met WONDERFUL people, visited churches, an orphanage in Thika and had an even BIGGER appreciation for these Missionaries and... how God uses them EVERYDAY to make a difference in this world! ♥

...At the end of this trail there was a stream of sorts where HIPPOS were hanging out! 
Pretty scary place to farm!

This is a picture of Horace, Erik and Paul

 This was a tiny little room where about 10 people were hard at work
turning the fruit into juice to sell at the local hotels.

So... It seams like Coca Cola has GOOD intentions with their Mango-Lime Aid for HAITI! The only thing that would make it even better is if they could market JESUS CHRIST on each bottle of JUICE! ♥

...Oh and on a side note - not related to JUICE but...

BEAUTIFUL Bracelets and ADOPTION!!!

But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
