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 Haitian Sabbath

This morning we got to worship with the church in Guibert. We arrived as the boys from the home were still in Sunday school, but as they came out we were met with smiles, embraces, and even some happy yells as the returning members of our group reunited with old friends. As we participated in worship with our friends, we were separated by language but connected by our father. Songs like "we exalt thee" in Creole rang through the air, passing through lifted hands and dancing bodies.
We spent the rest of our Sabbath resting and preparing for the VBS in the morning. All our supplies are organized and ready for the day leading the students in lessons, games, songs and crafts.
It has been a beautiful day in Haiti. Tomorrow will be spent with the kids.
