The scent of roasting coffee beans permeates the Southeast Asian air. IMB worker Katelyn Summers* keeps careful track of the roasting time.
Outside, high school student believers who have traveled from their home in Singapore lug bags of freshly picked coffee cherries to be processed and dried. The students came to this Southeast Asian nation to serve as part of their church’s partnership with Katelyn in order to help introduce the Gospel to the people group among which she is working.
Katelyn buys coffee cherries from the locals and then processes, roasts, and sells the coffee beans. Her coffee sourcing and selling provides the community with a livelihood and they provide Katelyn with an opportunity to share the Gospel.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program gives missionaries like Katelyn the opportunity to meet the needs of the communities they serve, both physically and spiritually.
PRAY for Katelyn as she ministers to the people she serves in Southeast Asia and that the Lord will lead many people from this nation to make a commitment of faith in Jesus.
