Freezing in the Night

Yong hated to go to bed because he knew he wouldn’t sleep. Leaks from the roof soaked his bedding while the cold turned his hands and feet blue. Yong’s father had died before he could build a new house, leaving Yong and his mother only $31 ... Read Transcript


AFTER HER HUSBAND DIED OF

CANCER, MRS. ANH WAS LEFT TO

RAISE HER SON ALL ALONE.

SHE JUST WANTED HIM TO BE

HEALTHY AND LIVE IN A DECENT

HOME.

BUT ALL THEY HAD WAS A VERY

OLD HOUSE, AND YAN WAS

ALWAYS SICK.

IN THE WINTER THE RAIN

LEAKED IN THE ROOF AND OUR

BLANKETS AND PAJAMAS ALWAYS

GOT WET.

MY HANDS AND FEET FROZE AND

TURNED PURPLE.

Terry: IT MADE IT HARD

FOR YAN TO SLEEP.

HE WOKE UP SEVERAL TIMES

A NIGHT AND HE HAD FEVERS A

LOT.

I WAS WORRIED BECAUSE HE WAS

SO FAINT.

HE NEEDED REST SO HE WOULD

GROW.

I JUST HELD HIM AND TRIED TO

COMFORT HIM.

Terry: HIS PARENTS HAD

TALKED ABOUT BUILDING A NEW

HOME BEFORE MR. ANH DIED,

BUT NOW ON ONE INCOME,

MRS. ANH COULD BARELY AFFORD

REPAIRS.

I AM ILLITERATE, AND SO

FINDING WORK IS HARD.

I WAS LIVING ON $31 A YEAR

FROM OUR CORN.

I DIDN'T WANT MY MOM TO

CRY AND HAVE TO WORK SO HARD

ANYMORE.

I WANTED THE LEAKING AND THE

COLD TO JUST STOP.

Terry: MRS. ANH IS A

CHRISTIAN, SO SHE PRAYED TO

GOD FOR HELP.

THEN CBN SHOWED UP.

SOMEONE FROM CBN CAME TO

OUR VILLAGE AND PROMISED TO

BUILD A NEW HOUSE FOR MY SON

AND ME.

I JUMPED AS HIGH AS I

COULD AND SHOUTED FOR JOY.

Terry: SOON THE ANH'S

NEW TWO STORY HOME WAS READY

FOR THEM TO MOVE IN, FULLY

EQUIPPED WITH A HEATER.

NOW I CAN SLEEP THROUGH

THE NIGHT.

NOW THAT YAN CAN SLEEP,

HE HAS ENERGY DURING THE DAY

AND IS GROWING STRONG.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR HELPING

US WHEN WE LOST EVERYTHING.

THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO

THE LORD AND BEING HIS HANDS

AND FEET.
