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.

Concrete and Cleaning

Today was our first full day in haiti and it was amazing. We had a busy day and are really tired, but we are good. It started off with breakfast and a beautiful drive to our boys home. When we got there we took a quick tour and saw all of the kids in school. There are a lot of jobs that we are going to try and accomplish this week so we split up into two teams and got to work. One team spent the morning cleaning out our depot (storage room) and getting it organized. They then cleaned out our youngest boys room, sanded the walls, bleached the walls and prepped everything for painting tomorrow. The other group helped pour a concrete floor in a new room that had been built, it is about 15 ft by 40 ft and we poured it by hand one bucket at a time. We also had to collect the water and supplies and carry it to the site. They were also able to help pour 4 new columns in a new addition to the building that we will get to put a roof on while we are here as well. The day has been full of new experiences, new foods, and new people. We have new faces that we will always remember and have been blessed to love on and laugh with. We are getting cleaned up and ready for dinner. Eager to see what tomorrow holds and how god is going to use and challenge us.

Things to Pray for:
Rest and Strength as we are working great and long days
For Gods love to be seen in everything that we do.
For our eyes to be open to what god is showing us and for our ears to listen to his still small voice.
