The mission of Hope For The Hungry is to "Share the Bread of Life with a Starving World". God has called us to serve people who suffer from hunger that is both spiritual and physical. According to scriptural mandate, we offer food for the body and salvation for the spirit to those who do not know Jesus Christ and will suffer eternal death without Him.

3 Roofs down 1 to go!

Today we finished our third roof. This was a special day because we were roofing the house we helped lay bricks and tie rebar on two days ago. Unfortanetly this house was not on the road and we had to walk the supplies down part of the mountain. The homeowner was Joseph and he is this little old man who was so appreciative for the work we were doing. He helped with what he could and had a lot of people there to help us. Everyone did an amazing job at their tasks and the roof went on fast. As we finished the roof we were able to pray for Joseph and his family. It was a sweet time. He thanked all of us and gave us hugs. Tonight we found out that there would be over 20 people staying in this home. Also, they were not going to be sleeping in the homes until they were fully finished but we got a call tonight and they are sleeping in the house we roofed. After 5 months of sleeping in a tent they are now in a home! We also got to go and have a meal at a restaraunt and did some souvineer shopping. It has been an amazing week and we have truly been blessed. We are looking forward to tomorrow and getting to worship with our Haitian friends.

Pray for much needed rest tomorrow. Pray for the last few days here and that we would continue to be intentional. Pray for God to be glorified in all things.
