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.

Our God Is great!

Thank you Jesus for the rain! We woke up this morning to very wet ground with more rain falling from the sky. The crops in this area were close death, so we were praising along with the Haitians for the rain. Even though we were thankful for the rain and cool weather, we weren't able to continue painting outside. Instead we did chores around the home for the girls. We quickly became very grateful for their hospitality throughout the week. We washed all of the dishes (a lot of them), washed sheets, and cleaned windows. It was a long morning.
After that the fun stuff began, today was the salvation story at VBS. We were able to tell the story of Jesus' sacrifice to roughly 800 children! We had several kids accept Jesus as their Savior today and it was a beautiful sight to see. Also, watching the children worship in song was so sweet and heart warming. We came home to many happy and hyper girls! Our next two hours consisted of dancing, hair braiding, clapping, duck duck goose, and keep away games. We may have been dripping sweat by the time dinner came around, but it was more than worth it. We made so many fun memories during that time!
We have been so blessed to have these beautiful and sweet girls to share a home and play time with. As of now we are under the stars dancing our hearts out to Jesus music.
Please pray for us tomorrow, as we will be encouraging the kids to share Jesus with others and as it is our final full day in Haiti.
