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.

Flexablity is Key!

It's another beautiful day in Haiti. Last night we had a rainstorm that cooled things off and the sound of rain on the tin roof put us to sleep. One of the key words to missions is flexablity and we have learned this one today. Our plan was to put a roof on house number 2 but it was not ready for us. So, we regrouped and switched to plan b. Plan b included is breaking up into 2 groups with different tasks. Group 1 stayed at the boys home and built shelving for our supplies. They had to move everything out in order to build. The shelving is built as far as we had supplies and will be finished once it gets here. Group 2 went to one of the houses that we will roof later this week. We helped with different aspects of the house from moving blocks, mixing concrete by hand, handtying rebar, and various other tasks. All of us were stretched beyond measure. We were challenged with our plans not working out and doing things we weren't ready for. But in everything God was blessed.

Pray for us as we continue to work on homes and plan to roof again tomorrow. Pray for team unity and strength. Pray for communication to not be an issue and find new ways to share the love of Christ with those we come in contact with.
