Brendan and Karina
Interserve – South East Asia
Sustainable income and community transformation through ethical crop to cup coffee.
Our heart is to see the families, villages and nation that we connect with experience the transformational power of knowing Jesus Christ. We work with an organic, environmentally sustainable crop-to-cup coffee business that provides a living income to highland farmers. Through everyday relationships in our town and business we display the love of Christ and speak his truth. The nation we live in is one of the least developed in Asia and many people still live below the poverty line. Most people groups in this nation live with a Buddhist/animist worldview. We have wanted to work in cross-cultural mission since our teens. Karina is an occupational therapist and Brendan has a background in social policy and running a small coffee roasting business. We went to South East Asia in 2016 as a couple and now serve as a family of 4.
