When Lourdes’ husband suddenly died, tears of grief almost overwhelmed her, but soon the cries of her five hungry children overshadowed her personal pain. As a young widow, how could she possibly feed her children alone? Read Transcript


Reporter: 30-YEAR-OLD

LORDES WAS DEVASTATED WHEN

SHE LEARNED THAT HER HUSBAND

HAD DIED.

WE MISS HIM.

HE WAS A GOOD FATHER.

Reporter: BUT FINDING A

WAY TO FEED THEIR FIVE

CHILDREN SOON OVERSHADOWED

LORDES' GRIEF, AND SHE WAS

QUICKLY RUNNING OUT OF

TIME.

I TRIED, BUT I WAS NOT

ABLE TO FIND A JOB.

Reporter: TEARS BECAME

COMMON PLACE AT THE DINNER

TABLE WHEN THE CHILDREN WENT

WITHOUT FOOD.

CHURCH MEMBERS CAME BY

OCCASIONALLY TO BRING FOOD

TO LORDES AND HER FAMILY,

BUT THAT WAS A TEMP

TEMPORARY CONDITION.

BUT "OPERATION BLESSING"

CAME AND HELPED

HER SET UP A

BUSINESS SELLING SHOES AND

CANDLES AND OTHER CLOTHING

IN HER NEIGHBORHOOD.

NOW WITH MY NEW BUSINESS,

I CAN GIVE MY CHILDREN

WHATEVER THEY NEED, FOOD,

MEALS.

BEFORE THIS, I WAS WITHOUT A

SINGLE DOLLAR.

Reporter: AND BECAUSE

"OPERATION BLESSING" TAUGHT

HER HOW TO MANAGE THE SMALL

BUSINESS, LORDES IS ABLE TO

BUY NEW ITEMS TO RESELL.

I THANK "OPERATION

BLESSING" WITH ALL OF

MY

HEART BECAUSE YOU'RE A GREAT

BLESSING FOR ME AND MY

FAMILY.
