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.

VBS Day 4

Today was our final day of VBS and it went amazingly well. We all hit our stride and everything worked in the best way possible. We had over 400 kids in attendance today and it was so exciting.

In today's assembly we were able to share about how God  can use us even when we do wrong and we talked about the forgiveness that only comes through Jesus Christ. We were able to share the plan of salvation with these kids and we have already heard of 3 who accepted Christ for the first time!  We are continuing to pray for others as there are many who are being counseled by teachers and other Haitian leaders. 

The VBS went really well and we were so happy. We could not have made it without the help of the Lawson family and the team from Agape. We have formed some amazing relationships with these partners and will miss them greatly. 

The rest of our day was spent preparing to leave: we sorted and cleaned up everything from VBS, did a little souvenir shopping and then spent time with our friends. 

Tonight we had an "American" meal with the Pastor, his family, and the people who have been serving us this week. The Lawson's cooked pizza and made a cake and it was a lot of fun. 

All in all it has been an amazing trip and it is hard to believe we head home tomorrow. There are many stories to share... too much for the blog, so please ask us about our trip and the people we have grown to love this week.

Pray for the kids from the VBS who have heard truth this week and pray for them to come to know Jesus.
Pray for us as we have to say our final goodbyes tomorrow. 
Pray for safe travels and protection as we make our way home. 
And pray for each of us as our lives have been changed this week and we will have to transition back to life in the States.

Thank you for all of the prayers this week. We have felt them and appreciate them.
