     When you go to Haiti, you may come back with purple hands. For a team that traveled to Haiti for Camp Meeting in April 2017, peeling eggplants was their service project. Not with potato peelers, but with knives. Hundreds of people came to the multi-day retreat which featured worship, teaching, and of course, eating meals together. The line stretched from the kitchen around the back of the church, to the far side, reaching the stage area. The assembly line seemed to keep people moving quickly. “It’s hard to explain what you saw,” says Chris in his Tennessee drawl, “I’ve never seen so many people.” Women prepared the meals, late into the night. The truck bed became the children’s temporary bedroom while the peeling for the next day’s meals continued. Even the ladies took naps in the truck. Terri, part of the American team said, “The ladies worked around the clock.” Sometimes the ladies took naps in shifts in the truck bed with the children. The food was tasty and well received.

Yet, the food that was eaten was not the greatest food of all. “Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty’” (John 6:35). Eighteen people came to meet Jesus for the first time or submit their lives to Him—before the pastor’s preaching began. The people at the camp meeting were hungry!
