CBN.com —Forty seconds is all it took for an earthquake to take the life of Glendy’s husband in a deep burrow pit at a mine where he worked in Guatemala.
“When I heard about my husband’s death, I was in shock. It wasn’t until 3 days later that I realized we’d lost our home too,” Glendy told us.
At first Glendy and her daughters went to live at a shelter. Each night there the girls cried for their daddy and their home.
“I told my mom to take us home,” said Evelyn, Glendy’s eight year-old daughter. “The shelter was cold and I wanted to be in my house.”
“My daughters’ words caused me great pain,” recalls Glendy. “I told them to put their faith in God, but I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t have a job, no money even to buy food.”
That’s when Operation Blessing arrived with food, water, medicine, and blankets for the 15,000 victims. We then decided that Glendy and her children would be among the first to receive a brand new home!
“When I got the news that Operation Blessing was building us a house I thought, ‘God has answered my prayers—and quickly!’ My heart was filled with joy,” said Glendy.
In a couple of days, the house was finished and they were able to move in.
“My house is very pretty! We really like it and are happy,” said Evelyn.
But we knew that, as a widow, Glendy also needed a way to support the family. So we bought her a commercial corn meal grinder to start a small business. With the profits she can now buy food and pay for other living expenses.
“Thank you for the grinder and my house and my new business,” she said. “You have shown me I’m not alone and God did not abandon me or my daughters. Thank you!”
