This special blend is in memory of Chris Purlee, a Five Lakes family member who lost her fight with Cancer in 2009. One of Chris’ passions was Forgotten Children’s Ministries in Honduras. Their mission is to rescue homeless children off the streets of their capital city Tegucigalpa, Honduras and take them to a farm 45 minutes away where they are cared for, loved and taught many skills.
Chris was first diagnosed with brain cancer shortly after her first mission trip to Honduras in 2002 but she never let cancer slow her down. Amidst treatments over the years Chris was able to venture five more trips to Honduras. God placed in her heart a love for her family and friends, and a passion for Honduras missions that would burn bright for all to see. Chris' legacy lives on in so many ways and your support of this special coffee blend will continue the work that she was so passionate about in Honduras.
