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.

Down the road again

Today we went back to Marothiere to finish another home. This house was down the mountain where vehicles aren't necessarily meant to travel... But none the less, we made it down there (and back up)!

We worked on the house of Madam Vanius, who lives with her husband and 8 children. So, of course, as we were working on the house we had a huge audience. We had to make some adjustments to our design because of the supplies that we had available, but once it was figured out, we moved quickly along.

As we were finishing up the house, Jean Alix told us that while we were working, he started talking to the oldest son in the home, Patrick. And under a tree, this teenager accepted Christ! It was so amazing to see the Lord working in the middle of a construction site. Jeff got to pray for him and rejoice to the Father, for drawing Patrick to Himself.

After we finished the home, we headed to the Baptist Mission for lunch and to buy some souvenirs. We had a great time and met some new Haitian friends.
Prayer requests:
- Tomorrow is church day. Jeff is going to be preaching in the morning, so please pray for him as he prepares.
- Pray for us to have an amazing day of worship and rest tomorrow.
- Pray for Jeff and Jen as they have some serious talks with the boys in the children's home.
- Pray that as we hand out shoes and backpacks tomorrow that the boys recognize God's provision in their lives.
