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.

Hope and a future...

We had a great day today.  We shared with 3 more schools and had more kids than we could count at our Bible Club tonight.  We also had many more kids express desire to learn more about the Lord.

I am amazed at the last 3 days of ministry.  Every school has been so welcoming and gracious to our team.  The children have been attentive and responsive.  The administration has been grateful and supportive.  My prayer is that all the information we are sharing has been clear and that these students begin to apply God's Truth to their lives.

HIV/AIDS has ravaged this country's youth as much as any other place in Africa.  Children growing up in homes without fathers is a major issue facing most communities.  Each day we have ministered to several children from a local children's home that are orphans because of one or both of the previous issues.  So as we share about God's plan for abstinence until marriage and fedelity with in marriage, we are praying that this generation of students becomes the generation that turns the tide in this country's war against disease  and unwanted  pregnancy.

Tonight at our Bible Club we talked about  how someone can have victory through Jesus.  Clint taught the kids to raise there hands over their heads in a "V" shape to remind them of the victory they can have in Jesus.   After our Bible story, the kids sang a song about Jesus being a winner danced around the yard with their arms over their heads representing victory.  It was a fun moment for everyone.

Pray for our team as we continue ministry tomorrow.  We will transition to a new village tomorrow. We have been in Makuyu, but tomorrow starts a new place of ministry in Kenol Town.  We start a new Bible Clun location tomorrow at Lifespring Church as well.  We are excited  about new opportunities ahead.

For those of you that have been praying for Nelson's son.  All is well and he is going to be fine.  Thank you for your prayers.
