Warming Their Bodies and Souls

The brutal Ukrainian winter was taking a toll on Mikhail's family. That's when CBN provided jackets, blankets and home repairs to help insulate their house more effectively. Read Transcript


Reporter: ACROSS

EASTERN EUROPE, FAMILIES

CONTINUE TO FACE A

SIBERIAN-STYLE WINTER.

TEMPERATURES HAVE HIT RECORD

LOWS, DROPPING TO 20° BELOW

ZERO O.

IN WESTERN UKRAINE, PLENTY

OF FAMILIES DON'T EVEN HAVE

WARM COATS.

WE HAVE NOTHING TO HELP

US TO KEEP WARM.

NEITHER A GOOD STOVE, NOR

WOOD.

I STAY INSIDE ALL DAY,

BUT I'M STILL FREEZING.

Reporter: MIKHAIL'S

WIFE RECENTLY HAD SURGERY

AND IS STILL IN THE

HOSPITAL, SO HE IS TAKING

CARE OF THEIR CHILDREN.

I WANTED TO FIX MY HOUSE

TO WITHSTAND THE COLD, BUT I

HAVE NO MONEY.

Reporter: NEARLY

THREE-QUARTERS OF THE

GYPSIES IN THIS AREA ARE

UNDER THE AGE OF 10.

CBN KNEW THESE CHILDREN AND

THEIR FAMILIES DESPERATELY

NEEDED HELP.

SO WE TRAVELLED THROUGH THE

ICE AND SNOW TO REACH THEM.

OUR TEAM FELT SICK AFTER

BREATHING THE SMOKE FOR JUST

FIVE MINUTES.

WITHOUT A NEW STOVE, THE

CHILDREN COULD SUFFOCATE.

WE GAVE THEM A NEW ONE,

AND IT WILL DO THE JOB OF

KEEPING IT'S HOUSE WARM

WITHOUT HURTING THE

CHILDREN.

Reporter: PEOPLE CAME

TO US AND BEGAN TO WORK

IMMEDIATELY, AND FIXED MY

WHOLE HOUSE.

WE ALSO INSULATED THEIR

HOUSE AND MANY OTHERS, AND

GAVE FAMILIES WARM BLANKETS,

AND TREATED CHILDREN'S CUTS

AND SCRAPES.

THEY BROUGHT US WARM

CLOTHES AND WOOD, TOO.

Reporter: THE SUPPLIES

PROVIDED BY CBN WILL HELP

THESE FAMILIES ENDURE THE

LONG, HARSH WINTER.

IT IS STILL FREEZING

OUTSIDE, BUT WE ARE WARM

INSIDE.

MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU.

I THANK GOD AND I THANK

YOU.
