Matthew 17:20, Jesus said, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible”.
What started as a tiny mustard seed idea planted in the hopes, dreams, and faithful prayers of ITDF and Lanna Foundation is beginning to come to fruition! Through months of praying, planning, provisioning and much perseverance we are seeing the reaping of the harvest already! Here are some highlights of our new compound and all that it will offer and more in the near future. It is a huge blessing this year that they have made that step from NGO to a Foundation. And now the beginning of a bright future of owning their own land, new compound and coffee warehouse all in one place and a beautiful state of the art coffee house and gift shop. All of this could and would not be possible without the many prayers and provision of donors like you! We are ever so grateful beyond words.
The Compound will provide a beautiful coffee house and gift store to create awareness of the work of ITDF, Lanna Coffee and the Hands to Heart Women’s Cooperative Project. Located in a higher traffic area bringing increased opportunity to draw customers and eco-tourism to café and gift shop in effort to raise awareness globally of how they too can help empower lives, beginning first with clean water to the villages of the Hill Tribes. There will be dormitories for ITDF staff members to refresh themselves in between water projects and beyond. The coffee roasting and shipment will be moved from current location to be an integral part of this compound in the future. New and more efficient office space and meeting room, providing opportunity for more effective communication, planning and reviewing stages from project to project. There will also be more storage and canteen area for future projects, enabling more organization and efficiency.
Like any vision, it takes continuous prayer, planning, provision and perseverance. We are still seeking new farmers (YOU) to keep persevering with us and tending to these seeds of hope for the future of empowering more lives through ITDF and Lanna Foundation.
Through your generous financial provision helping to sow the seeds of hope, together we can continue to strive to complete this season of tending to a hope for a brighter future, utilizing this compound as a foundation for the future through the Lord’s guidance. To date, we have raised $320,000 of the $820,000 project budget which is a good start and praying fervently for more farmers (YOU) to come sow the seeds of financial provision so that we can bring the fruits of this project to completion and harvest the benefits of this new compound to empower even more lives within the Hill Tribes.
