When it enters the sea, the sea of foul water, the water of the sea becomes fresh. 9 Every kind of living creature that swarms will live wherever the river flows,and there will be a huge number of fish because this water goes there. Since the water will become fresh, there will be life everywhere the river goes.” Ezekiel 47:8,9

What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. God is our Creator and He exist in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We must accept that we are a sinner, believe that Jesus died for us, confess that Jesus is Lord and follow Jesus with our lives. We believe in baptism by immersion as an act of obedience and a demonstration of following Christ. We believe that God has equipped each believer with spiritual gifts and we must be involved in the local church to exercise our gifts. We believe the destination for believers is Heaven and the destination for the unbeliever is Hell. We believe that Jesus is returning again just as He promised.

Aroma of The Andes Coffee

Finca La Despense - Supata Colombia In 1993, Duane had the opportunity to travel to Colombia with his uncle Erwin Bourne, who was a missionary. Duane traveled through Bogota, south to the Huila Department to pueblos like Neiva, Garzon, Pitilito and Guadalupe. During these travels, he visited several coffee farms and fell in love with the Colombian landscape. During this trip, he met a pastor named Edermin Cortes.

Fast forward to 2011. Duane was on a trip to the Amazon and met up with pastor Edermin in Bogota. An invitation was made to have the pastor visit the United States and visit Gobblers Ridge Bed & Breakfast. In November of 2011, pastor Edermin visited West Virginia for the first time and during this visit, inquired if our family would be interested in purchasing a coffee farm. Duane was aware that pastor Edermin's childhood coffee farm was stolen from his family by the Guerilla forces many years ago. So, we asked him what a small farm or "finca" would cost and if he knew of any in a safe area of Colombia. He said he knew of several. Meanwhile, we talked it over and decided that if the opportunity arose, we would purchase the farm and have Pastor Edermin and his family manage the farm for us. In November 2011, we started pursuing the purchase of a small coffee farm in the Andes Mountains of Colombia. Pastor Edermin Cortes worked diligently searching for the right farm for us to purchase. In February 2012, we traveled to Bogota to finalize the purchase of the finca and in March, we were notified that the sale of the finca was approved by the Colombian government. The finca which is registered as "Finca La Despensa" is located in Supata, a small pueblo about 2 hours north-west of Bogota. It is in a rugged, sparsely populated area about 3 miles from the pueblo of Supata. The finca is managed by Mr. Cortes and he maintains approximately 6500 coffee trees. The coffee grown in this area is known as "shade grown, hard bean Arabica" since the altitude is 5500 feet above sea level. Our first major purchase was a new processing machine called a "despulpadora" which removes the skins from the ripe coffee cherries. We are currently building a new pavilion for the machine and fermentation tanks as well as new drying buildings where the coffee beans are air dried for 10-15 days. We will be able to process all our own coffee and prepare it for the market or to sell locally to a Colombian buyer.
