CAROLINA IS A PICTURESQUE@f

TOWN LOCATED@n IN THE

FOOTHILLS OF THE APPALACHIAN

MOUNTAINS.

BUZZ AND TRE TERESA ALWAYS

WANTED TO LIVE THERE.

SO BUZZ QUIT THIS JOB AND

THEY MOVED TO THE AREA.

THEY DIDN'T KNOW MANY OF THE

FAMILIES WERE STRUGGLING

WITH FACTORY CLOSURES.

BUZZ AND TERESA ENDED UP

LIVING IN A TENT.

EVERYTHING JUST RAN OUT.

WE COULDN'T FIND WORK.

WE DIDN'T KNOW WHERE OUR

NEXT MEAL WAS COMING FROM.

WE'RE GOING TO BE OKAY.

WE STARTED BRAINSTORMING AND

THINKING, WHAT CAN WE DO?

WHERE ARE WE GOING TO GO?

WE'RE HURTING PHYSICALLY AND

EMOTIONALLY, AND GOD WAS

DRAWING US TO HIM THE WHOLE

TIME.

Reporter: THE

CAMPBELL'S FOUND "OPERATION

BLESSING" PARTNER VICTORY

MINISTRY.

AFTER GETTING FOOD THERE,

BUZZ AND TERESA ATTENDED ONE

OF THE CHURCH'S SUNDAY

SERVICES.

THE WAY GOD REALLY GOT MY

ATTENTION WAS WE WERE DOWN

TO OUR LAST $10.

AND I WAS LED TO GIVE HALF

OF THAT INTO THE MINISTRY.

Reporter: WHEN BUZZ LET

GO OF THAT $5, I JUST SEEN A

PEACE AND A CALMNESS COME

OVER HIS LIFE.

AND I'M THINKING, LORD, IF

YOU HAVE EVER, EVER BLESSED

A MAN, I'M ASKING YOU RIGHT

NOW BLESS THAT MAN AND DO IT

IMMEDIATELY.

Reporter: BO ABOUT A

WEEK LATER, BUZZ LANDED A

JOB WORKING AT A DAY PROGRAM

WORKING WITH PEOPLE WITH

MENTAL AND PHYSICAL

CHALLENGES.

HE NOW SERVES THERE AS A

DIRECTOR.

TODAY THEY VOLUNTEER WITH

THE MINISTRY, GIVING OUT

FOOD TO OTHER FAMILIES IN

NEED.

THE FOOD FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS IMMENSELY

IMPORTANT TO THIS

COMMUNITY.

WE'VE BEEN BLESSED TO BLESS

OTHERS.

JESUS INTENDED US TO PUT HIS

BLESSINGS TO USE IN THE

LIVES OF OTHERS.

WHEN YOU TURN YOUR LIFE

OVER TO THE LORD, YOU CAN'T

GO ANYWHERE BUT UP.
