As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.
Over the course of 13 years, Eight Days of Hope has had over 32,000 volunteers from over a dozen countries to love and serve those in need. God has blessed this organization with amazing volunteers, and we are excited to share their stories with you!
The best part of my four-month vacation was the two weeks spent working with Eight Days of Hope in Houston. It changed my life and redefined love.
Serving with Eight Days of Hope has changed the way that I view brokenness. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we are able to come into seemingly hopeless situations and rebuild them for the glory of God...and by His grace, what is rebuilt becomes even more beautiful than it was before it was broken. This is the love of Jesus shown in a practical way, and it is powerful to be a part of.
I heard about Eight Days of Hope just over a year ago. And since day one, I knew I found my niche. Not only do I get to do construction with a purpose, but I get to do it alongside godly people who want to serve God and help others!
“I had the best time serving with Eight Days of Hope! I felt like I was closer to Heaven worshiping with 3,000 people every day, serving others in His name and for His glory!
“I believe actions speak louder than words. Eight Days of Hope is not just sharing the word of God but they are living out the word of God! Eight Days of Hope is a modern day good Samaritan story!
“This was the first mission trip for my husband and me. We were overwhelmed seeing over 3,000 volunteers under one roof, brought together for one reason, to show God's love. The homeowners and the people of Tupelo were so very welcoming. It was amazing to see how smoothly everything went. There was no downtime or wondering what to do next. Eight Days of Hope is wonderfully organized.”
“To me, Eight Days of Hope is about the recharging of my spirit and faith. You go on the trip to serve someone in need and end up being blessed yourself. While serving, you walk so close to Christ that you return home from the trip so spiritually charged that you are compelled to tell everyone about the experience. Then you count down the days until the next Eight Days of Hope trip.”
“I was able to introduce my youngest son Weston, to being the church instead of simply going to church. That was his first mission trip and he loved it! His second trip is in two weeks to Peru”.
