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

Day 3 of our VBS went wonderfully. We had sooo many kids. Multiple classes were running between 60/70 kids a piece. But God is good and we had everything we needed to make the day a success. 

I have been so impressed with our team. They have truly embraced my catchphrase "the keyword to missions is FLEXIBILITY". Anyone who has ever gone with me on a trip knows that I say this at least 12 times a day.  There is no other way that they would have been prepared to plan for one craft but do another due to lack of supplies. It helped them through a classroom full of sweaty teenagers, sans deodorant, with one tiny window and no airflow.
Our devotion this morning was about letting God sustain us when we are tired and needless to say, we relied on him a little extra today.

Our teachers did a great job today. They taught the memory verse, reviewed all the info from the week with the kids and told another story in the assembly time. They are such a huge help and are instrumental in making this week a success.

We were able to help with the VBS meal again today. It is so sobering to think that most of these kids are only eating today because they are at school. Doing the dishes after lunch only solidified the sheer number of kids that pass through our program. 

Tomorrow is our last day of VBS. Here are some ways you can pray.

- We are getting weary. VBS is tiring and although we have downtime, we feel we must fill it up playing with kids. Pray that we are able to get some good rest tonight so we are recharged for our let day of VBS tomorrow. 
- Goodbyes are always hard. Pray for us as we say goodbye to our translators, teachers, and kids.
- Pray we end our VBS well. Pray that we've made a positive impact on all who have heard the message, ourselves included

Thank you all for joining in on our journey. We truly couldn't be here without all your support.
