Reporter: THE LAST

MESSAGE CARLA RECEIVED FROM

HER HUSBAND CAME ON A PIECE

OF CARDBOARD.

HE SAID HE WAS LEAVING HER.

JUST A NOTE, NO

EXPLANATION.

I WAS DEVASTATED AND FELT SO

HELPLESS.

HE WAS GONE.

Reporter: IN AN INSTANT

CARLA BECAME A SINGLE MOTHER

OF TWO WITH NO JOB AND $5 IN

HER POCKET.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO.

I HAD NOTHING TO FEED THE

CHILDREN.

I CRIED.

Reporter: AFTER SHE

SOLD THEIR FEW POSSESSIONS,

CARLA STARTED DOING LAUNDRY,

BUT THAT ONLY PROVIDED

INCOME ONE TO TWO DAYS A

WEEK.

BY THE END OF THE MONTH, SHE

LOST THE HOME THEY WERE

RENTING.

WE LEFT THERE AND STARTED

WORKING DOWN THE STREETS.

Reporter: ONE DAY AFTER

FINDING A FRIEND TO STAY

WITH, CARLA MET SOMEONE FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING."

THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT

GOD BROUGHT THESE KIND

PEOPLE TO ME.

Reporter: WE KNEW

CARLA'S GREATEST NEED WAS TO

PROVIDE FOR HER FAMILY.

SO WE GAVE HER A NEW CART

AND EVERYTHING ELSE NEEDED

TO START A SMALL BUSINESS

SELLING FOOD.

IT WAS AMAZING.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

I CRIED WHEN I SAW HOW THEY

WERE HELPING ME.

Reporter: CARLA HAS

BEEN RUNNING HER SMALL

BUSINESS FOR SIX MONTHS, AND

EACH MONTH SHE MAKES $300.

THIS ALLOWS HER TO RENT A

HOUSE AND PROVIDE FOR HER

CHILDREN.

WHEN PEOPLE SEE MY FOOD

CART, THEY ASK ME ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING."

AND I TELL THEM WHAT A

WONDERFUL BLESSING THEY HAVE

BEEN TO ME.
