A House Too Small

You brought them something that is so wonderful that it seems like a dream to Peruvian baker Esteban. Read Transcript


Reporter: ESTEFAN

WORRIES ABOUT HIS FAMILY,

ABOUT PROVIDING ENOUGH FOOD

FOR THEM.

MOSTLY HE WONDERING HOW HE

CAN PROVIDE A BETTER PLACE

FOR HIS FAMILY TO LIVE IN.

FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS, THEY

LIVED IN A HOUSE THEY CAN

HARDLY STAND UP INSIDE.

THE HARDEST TIMES WERE

WHEN STRONG RAINS CAME AND

DESTROYED PART OF THE ROOF.

WE GOT SOAKED.

I FELT HELPLESS THAT I

COULDN'T PROTECT MY

CHILDREN.

Reporter: AND THIS

BROKEN DOWN RENTAL WAS ALL

THAT ESTEFAN COULD AFFORD.

THE HARD-WORKING COUPLE GETS

UP EVERY MORNING AT 3 A.M.

TO BAKE BREAD AND PASTRIES

TO SELL AT THE MARKET.

BUT THERE NEVER SEEMS ENOUGH

LEFT OVER TO MOVE INTO A

BETTER PLACE OR REPAIR THEIR

ROOF.

I PRAYED TO GOD WITH MY

WHOLE HEART AND I PUT MY

TRUST IN THE LORD.

I SAID, LORD, IS THERE

SOMEONE WHO MIGHT HELP GET

SOME LEAVES OR WOOD TO FIX

THE HOUSE.

Reporter: ESTEFAN'S

PRAYER WAS ANSWERED WHEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" CAME TO

HIS COMMUNITY AND OFFERED TO

HELP.

WHILE HE WAS AT WORK, WE

BUILT HIM A BRAND NEW HOUSE

ON A SMALL PLOT OF LAND

OWNED BY THE FAMILY.

VOLUNTEERS FINISHED THE JOB

IN JUST ONE DAY.

IT SEEMED IMPOSSIBLE.

I WAS LOOKING AT MY BRAND

NEW

HOUSE.

I AM SO GRATEFUL TO YOU.

YOU HAVE GIVEN

ME A NEW

HOUSE TO PROTECT US WHILE WE

SLEEP.

MY WIFE, MY CHILDREN ARE SO

THANKFUL TO YOU, "OPERATION

BLESSING."
