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.

Saying goodbye

Today was beach day, so an early start was necessary. The whole team was up and ready before 6 am, breakfast came at 6:15, and we were on the road by 7. 

The girls packed into the Tap Tap van while our team was split in between Jean Alix's truck and a van. The two hour drive was bumpy at times, but the morning wind was enjoyable. We had time to stop for some quick souvenir shopping, where bargaining was a challenge that a few conquered. 

We got to the Comier Resort around 9 and the view was spectacular. 

It didn't take long for the girls to dive into the ocean and the party began. Splashing, jumping over waves, and playing in the sand filled the hours up until lunch. There, burgers or chicken sandwiches with French fries were on each plate along with soda. 

All the girls cleaned their plate and left with full bellies, ready for more hours in the ocean. The afternoon carried on and even the adults joined in on the fun. Everyone was covered in sand and smelled like salt water by mid afternoon, so we all rinsed and dried off before heading back into the vehicles around 3. 

The ride back was quicker (but still just as bumpy) and we are now all unwinding at the girls home. Some came back with sunburns and most are just plain tired. We are all preparing to leave tomorrow, with packing left to do, so that's what the night will consist of. That and party time with the girls, of course. Club Ferrier to come! 

Pray for us as we begin our goodbyes. Pray for a great last night in Ferrier. And pray for safe travels Saturday and Sunday. We love and miss all of our family and friends very much.
