God’s kingdom operates differently from that of the world. In our world of finance,” little” remains little, and “much” is quite a distance from “little”. However, kingdom finance is radically different from the world. Jesus likened the operation of the Kingdom of God to a mustard seed – very little in its original form, but when planted grows into […]
The most powerful Hurricane in a decade, Matthew, has left thousands displaced in Haiti. From reports from the field we know many streets are flooded and many houses are without roofs. Bridges and roads are washed out. As you know, Haiti is one of the world’s poorest countries with many already living in flimsy housing […]

How to make Rosella (Roselle) Juice and Tea
Article submitted by Norberto & Julie Kurrle, Field Coordinators in Paraguay
This is rosella (not to be confused with grosella, which is gooseberry). Rosella is from the hibiscus family.
It’s harvest time here, and we use the rosella to make juice and tea. It’s properties are absolutely tremendous. It helps sooth colds, coughs, helps digestion, promotes healthy kidney function, is a treatment for cancer, and reduces a fever and that’s just a few of its benefits!
To make rosella juice, first de-pit the fruit and wash the skin thoroughly.
Put the fruit into boiling water until the water is bright red (about 15 minutes). The color is so vibrant, Roselle is sold to make dyes. Strain the fruit (which can be used to make a delicious jam) and refrigerate the juice. Add a few squirts of Stevia for a healthy drink.
The finished product looks exactly like red Kool-aid, but is entirely full of nutrients. We can’t get enough of it.
We dehydrated the petals for hot tea. All you need is two dried flowers to infuse in hot water to make a wonderful hot tea on a cool day. If you don’t have access to Rosella, run, don’t walk to get some rico hibiscus tea at a specialty store near you.
