Escaping the Paycheck to Paycheck Life

You Can Love Your Work —Jose has always worked hard to provide for his family, until the day he opened the storage shed and discovered that someone had stolen all of his tools!  He raced around the construction site hoping to find them but they were gone.  

“When I knew my tools had been stolen, I knew I was going to get fired,” said Jose.

A day later, he lost his job.

“I thought, ‘Now, I won’t be able to bring in money for household expenses, food, school fees or medicine or if one of my kids gets sick.’”

Three months passed. Jose was only able to find odd jobs that paid very little. That made him feel like a failure as a father.

“ When I was a boy,” he told us, “I went  hungry-and the truth is I NEVER wanted my children  to face that!” 

When CBN's Operation Blessing came to town for a free shoe distribution, we learned about Jose’s family. We took Jose shopping to buy new tools to replace the ones that had been stolen and a lock to keep them safe.   

“They bought me a trowel, pliers, a hammer and a wheel barrow. And they bought me new power tools. They are better than the ones I had!”

Now, Jose is back to work making enough money to provide for his family and even to share some with others. 

“We are now helping two older ladies with some groceries,” Jose’s wife told us.        

"Thank you Operation Blessing for all help you’ve provided. In the same way you blessed us, we want to bless others!” said Jose.
