Candace Kaster | Trade Palms 

After serving in Guatemala for 4 years, Candace returned to the United States in June 2006 to run a mission travel organization called Transformational Journeys, Candace maintains her work with the Quixayá Library as they seek to become self-sustainable. In addition, she continues her ministry by responding to the expressed needs of Guatemalans through a variety of development projects from water systems to fuel efficient cook stove construction. In 2008 she became involved in a fair trade, organic coffee movement with Kapeh-Utz as a means to directly support the coffee growers/producers she lived among while in Guatemala. Candace also manages current projects and actively seeks new projects for Trade Palms in Guatemala, helping develop relationships that will assist Trade Palms in fulfilling its mission of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
