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.

A hike for 1.5 hours and 1.5 houses done today! 3 in total!!!

Day 4; Today was a challenging day but it was so good. Our day started off the same. Up by 6. Breakfast at 7. And leave by 8. We drove the hour up to marotiere, and then hiked to the house we were at yesterday which was in LaGrene. We put the metal on the roof pretty quickly and prayed for the family. We then loaded things up and hiked back to a house in marotiere. We got there and started working so hard that we had all of the wood up before lunch. We then hiked about 15min from the house to the church in marotiere where some ladies had made us some spaghetti with hotdogs in it. It was really good and we ate it all so fast, we were done with lunch in 5 min we were that hungry. We then headed back to the house and put up the metal. A storm rolled in with some intense fog that made us all work even faster. When we finished the house we prayed which is such a sweet time with the family. We decided we wanted to go to the next house but we were told it was too far. I called jean alix to see what he wanted us to do. And he told me that it would be several hours before he could get to us, and that the house wasn't ready,'so no more work for today. However, we had to walk from marotiere to robin in order to get picked up. It took us 1.5 hours to get there. Most of this was up a big mountain and we were exhausted... It was a beautiful walk that taught us a lot in the way. We then loaded up into some Haitian transportation and headed back to jean alix's house where we are tonight. We had an amazing dinner and are off to bed. Very tired and very sore. More houses tomorrow.

Pray for strength and stamina, we are very tired and sore from today's hike.
Pray for the village we will be in tomorrow and for the family we will help.
Pray for church on Sunday. Jeff found out today that he will be preaching. Pray that his message speaks to the people and that his translator, Leo, will understand and communicate effectively.
