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.

Praise the Lord

Clap your hands, all peoples!...Shout to God with loud songs of joy! Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises! For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm! God reigns over the nations; God sits on his holy throne.
(Psalm 47:1, 6-8 ESV)

Today our team did just what Psalm 47 says.  We praised the Lord, even during the moments when we did not understand the words being spoken.  Part of our team spent the morning in worship with Lifespring Baptist Church in Kenol.  The most exciting part of the service was hen a man named George trusted Christ as his Savior.  The other part of the team spent the morning at New Hope Baptist Church in Makuyu.  Theyhad a great morning filled with enthusiastic and authentic worship.

After lunch we traveled to visit Pastor Mwauru's parents.  They are both in their 80s and leading a church that meets in their home.  The shared tea with us, a Kenyan tradition, and hosted us in their home.  They are precious servants of the Lord and it was a joy to spend some time with them.

The HBC begins tomorrow morning.  We are excited for what the Lord is going to do.  Please continue to pray for us as we serve.  The Lord will be glorified as we share His Word and proclaim His name.
