RAISE HER TWO CHILDREN ALONE

IN SOUTHERN INDIA.

I WORKED AS A MAID, BUT I

HARDLY EARNED ENOUGH TO MEET

THEIR NEEDS.

SOMETIMES I COULDN'T EVEN

FEED MY CHILDREN.

I NOW HOW TO SEW CLOTHES, SO

I THOUGHT I

WOULD MAKE MONEY

AS A TAILER, BUT I COULDN'T

AFFORD A SEWING MACHINE.

HEAVY RAINS FLOODED SOUTHERN

INDIA, WASHING AWAY HER HOME

AND ALL OF HER BELONGINGS.

ASHAMA AND HER CHILDREN

MOVED IN WITH HER PARENTS,

BUT THEY COULDN'T SUPPORT

THEM, EITHER.

SO AS A CHRISTIAN FAMILY,

THEY PRAYED TOGETHER.

I BELIEVED WATER WAS THE

PROBLEM, MAYBE, BUT JESUS

CAN SOLVE IT.

Reporter: NOT LONG

AFTER THAT, CBN CAME TO HER

VILLAGE TO HELP FLOOD

VICTIMS.

THEY GAVE SASHAMA AND HER

FAMILY A BRAND NEW SEWING

MACHINE AND FABRIC.

I WAS THRILLED WHEN YOU

BOUGHT ME THE BRAND NEW

SEWING MACHINE.

GIVE MY CHILDREN A BETTER

LIFE.
