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.

Raising the Roof on Spring Break

 Today has been another great day. I can't believe our trip is already half over. It seems like we just started our time here..

We headed back up to the Mission Complex in Guibert this morning. We had a plan of attack to finish the roof of the kitchen and move on to working on the mission house. When a few unexpected issues arose, it ended up taking a lot longer than we had anticipated. Even so, our team took the setbacks in stride.

We finished as much as we could on the roof and then moved on to helping sift sand that is being used to plaster the walls. It took some getting used to but we managed to get the hang of it.

Throughout the day, we were able to take some breaks and play with the kids. Everyone loves seeing the 'Blancs' and swarm us every time we are near.

Here are some things to pray for tomorrow:

1.) Pray that we will be able to finish the roof to the kitchen. We are needing to cut metal but haven't found all of the tools we need for the job and can't do much else until that is done.

2.) Pray for continued safety as we are doing construction work in not the safest of environments.

3.) Pray for ministry to happen, even in the mundane. Ask that we would see and also seek out opportunities to serve.
