Escaping the Paycheck to Paycheck Life

You Can Love Your Work —Nobody enjoys life on the farm more than 8-year-old Angel Gustavo. His father is a caretaker there, and Angel loves to help his dad out when he can.

“I have many jobs,” Angel says. “I feed the pigs, trim the palm trees and collect coconuts to sell in the village.”

“Angel is a good boy,” says his father. “I love that he comes to help me!”

Everything was going well for Angel, until he developed a painful hernia.

“I told my mom that the hernia hurts so bad that I couldn't sleep,” recalls the young boy.

“We took Angel to the doctor and he said that our son needed surgery,” his mother’s explains. “But we could not afford that. At night, I cried with him. I tried to sit at his bedside, but I couldn’t do anything to help him.”

When CBN’s Operation Blessing learned about Angel’s condition, the team quickly arranged for the surgery to repair the hernia. Angel recovered and just a few weeks later, he was as active as ever and back on the farm working hard and having fun.

“I feel like the happiest man in the world, to see him run and have fun with his friends,” says Angel’s father.

“I am so happy that he is not in pain anymore”, his mother exclaims.

“Thanks Operation Blessing,” Angel says, “because you gave me that surgery and now I can do everything I want!”
