Escaping the Paycheck to Paycheck Life

You Can Love Your Work —As the sun rises over the desert and the city of Minya, Egypt, Marian begins her work for the day.  She’s a widow raising two children alone.  In the recent past, she had no income, and the family was struggling.

“We had a lot of debt, and I have cancer,” Marian explains.  “Neither the sickness nor the children understood that we had no money.  They both kept saying, ‘We want.  We want.’” 

Marian is a Christian, so she prayed that God would help her.  One day her daughter saw her crying.

“She asked, ‘mom, why are you crying?’  I told her because I don’t have any money. And she asked ‘Why don’t you open a store?’”

Marian borrowed a few dollars to buy and sell sugar, soap and tea. Then she heard about a CBN program for people who want to start businesses. We gave her the money she needed to open a small, well-stocked shop.

“Thank you so much!” says Marian excitedly. “I always pray to God, and I tell Him, if I am a widow, you are my husband. That’s what’s written in the Bible. And it is true - He is my husband, and the heavenly father of my children.  He is looking after all of us!”
