From Victims To Volunteers

Even though Hurricane Isaac destroyed their home, Gina and Danny used their boat to rescue stranded neighbors and volunteered with Operation Blessing to help other victims. Learn how God blessed them for blessing others. Read Transcript


Reporter: DURING THE

WORST OF HURRICANE ISAAC'S

FLOODING, GINA HUNTER AND

HER FAMILY FLED TO SAFETY.

HER HUSBAND, DANNY, STAYED

BEHIND, USING HIS BOAT TO

RESCUE MORE THAN A DOZEN

NEIGHBORS.

I WAS GETTING PHONE CALLS

WITH PEOPLE TRAPPED IN THEIR

HOUSES.

WE KNEW WE HAD TO GET TO

THEM.

FANNY IS THE KIND OF

PERSON WHO IS GOING TO HELP

OTHER PEOPLE, AS LONG AS HE

IS ABLE TO.

Reporter: AS THE WATERS

RECEDED, DANNY AND GINA'S

HOME SAT IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE ROAD.

IT WAS A FEW HUNDRED

YARDS UP THE HIGHWAY.

Reporter: THEIR HOME

HAD TO BE DEM LIRBLED, BUT

-- DEMOLISHED, BUT IN THE

MIDST OF THEIR TRAGEDY,

THEIR DAUGHTER FOLLOWED,@

THEIR DAD'S EXAMPLE.

SHE SAID, MOM, WE CAN SIT

HERE OR WE CAN GO OUT AND

HELP OTHER.

Reporter: SO THEY

VOLUNTEERED WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING."

THEY WORKED WHEREVER THEY

WERE NEEDED AND GAVE A WORD

OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO EVERYONE

THEY NEEDED.

THEY SERVED HOT MEALS TO

FIRST SPONDERS AND PEOPLE IN

THE COMMUNITY.

DANNY AND GINA HAD INSURANCE

AND THEY WILL EVENTUALLY

HAVE A NEW PLACE TO STAY.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING"

TRANSFORMED THEIR SMALL

GARAGE INTO A SMALL

APARTMENT, WHERE THEY CAN

LIVE WHILE THEY REBUILD.

IT JUST MEANS SO MUCH.

IT WOULD TAKE A MIRACLE FOR

GOD TO COME AND STEP INTO MY

LIFE AND DO THIS.

WE ACTUALLY HAVE A HOME

WE CAN COME AND LIVE IN AND

SLEEP IN.

IT IS PRICELESS.

YOU CAN'T PUT A DOLLAR VALUE

ON EVERYTHING "OPERATION

BLESSING" HAS DONE FOR

EVERYONE, INCLUDING MYSELF

AND MY FAMILY.
