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.

VBS Day 2: Love and Kindness

Day 2 of VBS was even better than the first day! Today, we taught all about showing God's love to others by treating them with kindness.

Our assembly started out with a review of the memory verses. I was quite impressed that all of the children had memorized them already. It's such a sweet sound to hear a church full of tiny voices reciting scripture! We learned a some new songs and a new verse for the day.

During story time, I taught about showing kindness even when no one else is. I shared the story of the Good Samaritan and the unforgiving man. I had the children all act out the story as I told it. We looked quite silly, but all the kids had a great time.

Once we were in our individual classrooms, we sang more songs and made crafts. We made a man with outstretched arms and a chain link of kindness. To sum it up, we had a great day of VBS!

Once we got back home and ate lunch, we rested, helped out around the home, and played with the girls.

We remembered right before dark that we still needed to prep some of our crafts so we spent some time doing that. When we were finished, we sat with the girls and began singing English worship songs. They sound so beautiful with so many different voices.

Here are some ways you can pray:

-VBS Day 3 is all about loving others with your actions and words
- 4th, 5th, and 6th graders will all be attending a mandatory meeting in Cap Haitien tomorrow so they will not be participating in VBS. Pray that we can find time to present the info from the day to them so that they don't miss out on any of the fun.
- our continued time with the girls and leaders in the home.
