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 bigger than our abilities: Joseph

Day 2 of our VBS went over very well. Our day was all about the life of Joseph. The theme for the day was that God is more powerful than all of our circumstances.  We talked about how God was able to use Joseph despite all of the negative aspects of his life. It didn't matter that Joseph was a slave, servant, or even prisoner... God was able to use him to save his family. We told the kids that God is able to do the same thing today, with each of them. It doesn't matter what their circumstances are, God is bigger than any obstacle they face. And God can work through all things to bring glory to Himself.

We sang a lot of songs and did many crafts, mostly about Joseph's coat of many colors and  the kids all had a blast. Everyone is excited to do something out of the routine so they are enjoying every minute of our time with them.

When we left for the day, we headed to the girls home. We all went our separate ways with naps, housework, and homework help. Right before dark, we went into the village and watched a soccer match with some of the village girls. It was an INTENSE game.  One girl from the other team blew out her knee and another, from the sound of her head hitting the ground, I'm pretty sure has a concussion, but everyone had a great time and it was fun to watch... Not the injuries but the game. 

Tomorrow is the 3rd day of VBS. We will teach all about Moses and how God uses us despite our abilities. It should be a really great day. Here are some things to pray for:

- Pray that our translators will continue to do their best as they help lead with us

- Pray that the children will receive the message that God has for tomorrow

- Pray that our team will continue to work well together as we love on everyone here

Thank you all for your prayers. Pray that tomorrow will be another great one!
