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.

Day 2- Internet didn't work yesterday so you get this today!

Day 2: Today was our first full day in Haiti and it was quite an experience. We have been using the term TIA (This is Haiti) a lot. One of the key aspects to missions is flexibility, and we have definitely learned a lot about flexibility. The plan for the day was to tour Guibert which is where our boys orphanage and church is. We saw homes that we had previously built, saw future projects, and loved on some kids. We thought we were going to start building but that was not the case. Instead we pulled all of the supplies we would need in order to roof six houses and delivered it to 2 of the churches in different villages where we will be building later this week. The plan for tomorrow is to head out early and drive over an hour on rocky mountain roads to the village of Marotiere where we have the goal to roof two of the houses. We are all excited and ready for this. The land here is beautiful and the people are amazing.

Pray for safety in our travels tomorrow.
Pray for our team to continue to be unified and work well together.
Pray for the new people we will meet.
Pray for our eyes to be openned and our hearts to be prepared for what God has in store for us.
