  • I am interested in this project for our Women's Bible study--called Coffee Break--and would eventually try to get it going churchwide. Please send me an introductory kit--info, brochures, order forms etc--so I can present it to my women in a few weeks. Thanks and God bless your ministry. by Mary Ellen Bloem on 08/11/2010 at 9:18 a.m.
