Something new set to come to Pella

I scream, you scream, we all scream for...frozen yogurt? That’s right! Many Hands for Haiti (MH4H) officially announced its plans to open a frozen yogurt shop called The Mango Tree at 720 Main Street in Pella this coming April.

After such a successful start to Many Hands Market in Spencer this past August, MH4H felt encouraged to pursue other mission based businesses stateside. The Mango Tree will provide high-quality yogurt, with proceeds going to fund programs already established in Haiti. Plus, the shop provides an opportunity for people from the Pella community to get involved, without having to go to Haiti. Whether volunteering or snacking, this self-serve yogurt shop will provide new and fun ways to bless the people of Haiti.

Liz Clarke, native of Clinton, Iowa, will serve as the store manager and the only official employee of the store. The rest of the store will be run by volunteers. Clarke attended Central College in Pella and graduated in 2006. She comes on board with over four years of restaurant managing experience, as well as a passion to spread God’s truth all over the world. She’s especially excited to help volunteers realize that being mission minded doesn’t have to mean moving to a third-world country.

“Through my experience with MH4H, God has already shown me that being missional isn’t always about the GO-ing,” stated Clarke. “It is first about BE-ing intentionally in relationship with Him and with those He places in our life. His promise rings true that when we delight ourselves in Him, He will give us the desires of our hearts! For me, having a job where my skill set and passions are blended together so deliciously is better than anything I could’ve imagined!”
