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.

Resting in the Lord

What a beautiful sabbath we have had. I love that things in Haiti stop on Sunday. It gives everyone much needed rest and after a long day of travel yesterday, we needed time to recoup.

Our day started with a great morning of worship. Mark preached at the Agape church and Jeff preached at the Guibert church. Both did a great job teaching, so thank you for your prayers. 

After we left church, most of us took a good long nap and woke up to a Sunday feast with our Pastor's family. When the meal was over, we spent some time outside playing soccer, basketball, frisbee, and played on the playground. Today was our first taste of the language barrier and it was a relief to see how much can be communicated without words. 

All of our supplies are packed up and we are ready to begin VBS tomorrow! We are all excited for the week to begin but are anxious to get started. Day 1 of VBS is all about the life of Jesus and God's power in our life. 
Here are some ways you can pray:

- Pray that the teachers and church helpers in our classrooms will actively participate in the VBS. They have been given the material in advance in hopes that they will lead the Bible story time. Pray that they have prepared and are ready to teach.  
- We haven't met any of our translators yet, so pray for those men and women who will be serving alongside us this week. 
- We are anxious about the language barrier and uncertain about our Haitian teammates, pray that the Lord would give us peace and go before us and prepare the way this week. 
- Pray that our words get communicated clearly and that our message gets across well.

Thanks for the love and support. We are excited to see everything the Lord has for us!
