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 circumstances

Our 2nd day of VBS went very smoothly. After learning from yesterday and making some modifications, everyone was much more comfortable in their classroom.

The kids are having a great time as they learn memory verses and new songs. They are learning and sharing bible stories with each other in their classes. The girls from Ferrier are showing off their knowledge from the same VBS we did there in May. They are quite proud.  

Our teachers are continuing to amaze me as they participate.  Just during the assembly time, we had one teacher teach the memory verse to the kiddos and another who taught the day's lesson. My prayer from the beginning has been to get the teachers and administrators involved in running the VBS and they have all been a tremendous help so far. 

We were able to feed all of the kids at the end of our VBS day. 

We had around 400 kids today so meal time could have been quite a challenge. But the staff and volunteers here are quite remarkable. 

They had everything running smoothly and were able to make sure everyone got their fill.

 In case you're not sure what 400 kids look like, this is just half of the room! Kids everywhere...

After lunch, we headed back to the house to relax for a bit. Part of our team went back to the school to help with the dishes. A LOT of dishes!

The rest of the evening was spent playing on the playground and hanging out with the kids from the boys and girls home. Our team is having a lot of fun serving together, so thank you for your prayers.

Here are some things to pray for tomorrow.

- Day 3 of VBS
- for our teachers to remain involved and take on more responsibility
- for our team to continue to find opportunities to serve in our down time
