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.

Rockin' and Rollin'

Today was our last full day of work and was one of the hardest because of tiredness and bodies being pushed for the past 4 days. It was by the grace of God that he gave us strength to keep going in all we did. We also started our day walking half way to the boys home for it rained last night making the roads a little hard to travel on. Today we split up into two teams: a rock carrying team and a paint team. On the side of the rock team we began our day with an assembly line moving rocks from the front of the house to the back. We also moved cement buckets but today we finished the portion behind the house and they started along the other side the house. Today while working after the kids got out of school 3-4 kids age range of 5-6 helped us pick up and move rocks while they were still in their school uniforms. It was precious to see the little girls to carry rocks that were bigger than them.

All the while we were moving rocks there was half of our team painting the walls of the new great room and kitchen. We had good conversational time with a few of the younger boys and a chance to get things done with less strenuous work. We are looking forward to the rooms being used in the very near future.

Pray for our hearts as we prepare to leave.
Pray for our bodies and muscles as they are very sore.
Pray for the relationships and conversations to continue and for local pastors to continue the ministry.
