A Bakery With No Oven

A couple in Honduras want to start a bakery, but they don't have the funds to fix their over. Operation Blessing provides them with what they need to start the business. Read Transcript


Reporter: ADELEDIA AND

HER HUSBAND HAD BOUGHT

AN OLD OVEN, IN THE HOPES

OF STARTING A BAKERY

IN THEIR HOME, BUT THEY QUICKLY

RAN OUT OF MONEY.

AND BECAUSE HER HUSBAND

WAS UNEMPLOYED, IT WAS

IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM

TO BORROW ANY EXTRA MONEY,

BUT ADELEDIA SAYS THAT

WASN'T THE HARDEST PART.

THESE WERE HARD TIMES.

WE RAN OUT OF FOOD

TO FEED OUR CHILDREN

AND HAD TO DEPEND ON NEIGHBORS

AND FAMILY MEMBERS FOR HELP.

I WOULD LOOK FOR WORK,

BUT AT MY AGE, IT'S HARD TO FIND

SOMEONE WILLING TO HIRE ME.

Reporter: THAT'S WHEN A FRIEND

TOLD ADELEDIA ABOUT

OPERATION BLESSING.

FIRST, WE GAVE THEM THE

SMALL APPLIANCES THEY NEEDED,

THEN WE GAVE THEM BAGS OF FLOUR

AND OTHER COMMODITIES,

SO THEY COULD START

MAKING THEIR BAKED GOODS.

FOR ME, HAVING A NEW BUSINESS

WAS A NEW VISION, A SOURCE

OF INCOME TO HELP MY FAMILY.

I FELT SO GRATEFUL TO GOD

AT THAT MOMENT, FOR FINDING

OPERATION BLESSING.

THE HELP CAME WHEN

WE NEEDED IT MOST.

Reporter: IT'S ONLY BEEN

A FEW MONTHS SINCE THE BUSINESS

HAS BEEN UP AND RUNNING,

BUT ALREADY, THERE'S A BIG DEMAND

IN THE COMMUNITY

FOR ADELEDIA'S BAKED GOODS.

GOD BLESS THE PERSON

WHO HAD THE IDEA

OF CREATING OPERATION BLESSING.

EVER SINCE I MET

OB'S STAFF MEMBERS,

I HAVEN'T STOPPED PRAYING

FOR THEIR ORGANIZATION

AND I THANK YOU WITH ALL MY HEART.

THANKS!
