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.

God is good

What an incredible day full of ministry.  We traveled to 3 more schools today and shared the message of God's love with the chldren.  Praise the Lord we saw  8 high school seniors express interest in knowing more about a relationship with Christ tody.

Tonight we had 93 children from ages  4-14 at our Bible Club.  They were so attentive as Courtney shared about what Jesus did for them on the cross.   They soak up every bit of information and truth like sponges.   Clint did a fanstic job in coming up with several silly games for all the kids to play resulting in so much joy and laughter.  We even brought out the American Football and shared a laugh at the confusion with this odd shaped object that, as a few kids found out, does not bounce well.

I never cease to be amazed at how God works to bring together to right combination of people and gifts to accomplish His purpose.  Yesterday I mentioned Nelson, our translator. Tonight I want to mention Edward and Silas.  Edward is a local pastor that is helping Mwaura with the church plant in Kenol Town.  He is a dynamic man of God and an enthusiastic evangelist.   Silas is our driver but he is also a follower of Jesus and a worship leader at his church.  He helped lead some of the singing today and has a great voice.  It has been a joy for him to join us in ministry and not just drive.   He tolds us yesterday that most groups he drives are tourists, so he was excited to find out that he was getting to drive a mission team around and participate in the ministry with them.

Pray for good rest tonight.   Our team has been working hard and the pace is starting to catch up with us as we reach the half-way point.  Pray for Nelson's son.  He is very sick and only  two years old.  We tried to convince Nelson to go home but he assured us that everything was fine and the medicine was working.
