January 7, 2010
After hearing about the coffee needs and wants of many U.S. soldiers stationed overseas, the Royal Ambassadors (RAs) and Girls in Action of First Baptist Church, Jasper, decided to help.
And the Coffee for Christ drive was birthed as an opportunity to supply coffee to a military chaplain in Afghanistan.
“Men come to his chapel to get fresh coffee every time they come off duty, and it gives him an opportunity to witness to them,” said Tim Ferguson, RA director at First, Jasper.
With the children collecting nearly 75 bags of fresh ground beans to ship out, Ferguson said it was a great opportunity for them to be a part of outreach. “They understand this is helping soldiers, giving them something they like and need.”
