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.

It's a long way down!

Today has been a long and tiring day. We started the day at 6am to the sun and breakfast being prepared. The goal for the day was to put a roof on a house. We left Jean Alix's house by 8am and headed to the boys home. When we got there we took a quick tour, saw some of the roofed houses, and began to prepare for the house we would work on. 

Side note- school is back in session and the temporary classrooms we built at spring break are in full use. Such a sweet site to see.

Once we had gathered the supplies from the storage room we learned that the house we would be working on is about a mile and a half down the side of the mountain. So, we carried all of the supplies down the long path to the house. After a long day and many trips up and down we accomplished our task and ROOFED a HOUSE! We were able to pray with the family and had some really sweet moments. They were so appreciative and their smiles will forever be engrained in our minds. It truly took teamwork to finish the task and everyone did great.

PTL our prayers were answered and our cement is here, so work can continue. We got to help unload 100 bags of 50k bags of cement. Incase you didn't know 50k=100lbs! Although we are tired it is a huge blessing to be able to continue our work here.

Please continue to pray for our team and for the work we are doing. We have 3 more houses to roof and several other projects and tasks. Pray for stamina and strength to get through the days. Pray for openness to opportunities to share and love on people.
