CBN.com — Blanca and her twin sons collected scrap tin and plastic to build their house. It is the most common building material for the poor who live in El Salvador.
"We used to go the dump to collect what people threw away to build something to live in," Blanca told us.
One day, a piece of tin fell from the house they were building and struck Daniel in the face.
"The doctor said it took 13 stitches to fix it," said Daniel. "It really hurt!"
By the time they finished building their house, it was tiny by any standard.
Blanca has been raising her sons as a single parent for the past eight years. She sells vegetables and fruit and the occasional pie that she bakes in a neighbor's oven. On a good day, she earns only $3.
"Borrowing my friend's oven like that was hard for me because I knew I was taking time away from her baking business," recalls Blanca.
When Operation Blessing met the family, we offered to help by providing all the materials and the volunteers needed to build Blanca and the boys a new house!
"I was excited to see the house being built," said Daniel, the more outgoing of the twins. "Now that it is finished we really love it."
We then bought Blanca a new wood burning oven and all the ingredients need to grow her small business making pies and pastries. She now runs the bakery right from her new home!
"God's blessings are coming to my little business, so we have plenty to sell. That means I can send my boys back to school," said Blanca.
"Thanks Operation Blessing for all you brought to us, especially for the new house," added Daniel. "Thank you and thanks to God!"
