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.

Seeing Progress

Today was a great day!  We began our work in Guibert this morning.  It is amazing to see the progress that is being made in this community.  Construction on the Mission House continues, as a part of our group joined in the work by sifting rock, carrying buckets of mortar, and pouring the vertical beams.  We also continued with our vision clinic,  helping many of the local school children see clearly as well as some of the teachers.  In the afternoon we started working with the teachers from Guibert on three English Language program. These teachers are an intelligent and hard working group that are thrilled with the opportunity to sharpen their skills.

One of the repeated highlights of the day was the interaction everyone had with the local community and the boys in our children's home.  The progress being made, not only academically, but most importantly spiritually is obvious in the hope and joy in the eyes of each of the children. The love we express and share is being recieved as a direct reflection of the Savior we serve.

Pray for our continued strength and perseverence to the task.
Pray for the teachers as they continue to learn and improve
Pray that God is continually glorified in all we do.
