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.

Roofs, Rocks, and Removing Teeth

Today was our first workday and it was wonderful! We headed to the boys home complex at 730, and came up with a game plan. We divided our group into 3 teams: home building, mission house crew, and a dental clinic.
Our home builders were able to frame two houses today, alongside of the new home owners. They were able to not only help build their home, but also share the love of Christ with the owners and builders.
The mission house crew was working to clear rocks out of the way so that the foundation can be poured. They then started laying rebar so that tomorrow they will be able to pour the foundation.
Our dental team was able to assess the dental needs of all of the boys in our home. Then, all of the boys were given a hygiene class, with their new toothbrush and toothpaste. We were able to work on five of the kids who had the most significant needs and will continue on to the rest tomorrow.
Please pray for each of our teams. Pray for safety and wisdom for our construction teams. Pray for wisdom for our dental team to know how to best help the children of Guibert. Pray for all of us to stay focused on the most important task, showing the Love of Christ.
