Pray for Houston / by Bryan Hibbard

Well, its been a bit of a week here in Houston. I can't tell you how exceedingly blessed we feel to be safe and dry. And yet, I know all of us feel a bit of survivor's guilt seeing our neighbors' homes flooded. The nightmare is not over yet, but for now I am very happy to say that our home and our roastery survived the storm with no flooding. We left for Dallas on Thursday hoping to get ahead of the storm. We are now staying with some friends in the Western part of Arkansas. It's beautiful here, but we just can't wait to be home.

The short news is, we are not taking roasting orders this week. We are looking forward to getting back to work next week! We are going to do what we can to contribute to the recovery effort. We will be donating 10 lbs of coffee to each of our coffee shop accounts to brew and deliver as they see fit. I know everyone could use a good cup of coffee after Harvey.

We have some more ways to help too in the works. We will update you once we have this all sorted out. In the meantime, our prayers are with all our neighbors in Houston.
