RISES OVER THE DESERT IN THE

CITY OF NINIA, EGYPT, MARY

WORKS FOR THE DAY.

IN THE RECENT PAST SHE HAD

NO INCOME, AND THE FAMILY

WAS STRUGGLING.

WE HAD A LOT OF DEBT.

AND I HAVE CANCER.

NEITHER THE SICKNESS NOR THE

CHILDREN UNDERSTOOD WE HAVE

NO MONEY.

THEY BOTH KEPT SAYING, WE

WANT, WE WANT.

Reporter: MARY IS A

CHRISTIAN, SO SHE PRAYED

THAT GOD WOULD HELP HER.

ONE DAY HER DAUGHTER SAW HER

CRYING.

SHE ASKED, MOM, WHY ARE

YOU TRYING?

I TOLD HER BECAUSE I DON'T

HAVE ANY MONEY.

AND SHE ASKED, WHY DON'T YOU

OPEN A STORE?

Reporter: MARY BORROWED

A FEW DOLLARS TO BUY SUGAR,

SOAP, AND TEA TO SELL.

THEN SHE LEARNED ABOUT A CBN

PROGRAM FOR PEOPLE WHO

WANTED TO START BUSINESSES.

WE GAVE HER THE MONEY SHE

NEEDED TO OPEN A SMALL,

WELL-STOCKED SHOP.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I ALWAYS PRAY TO GOD, AND I

TELL HIM, IF I AM A WIDOW,

YOU ARE MY HUSBAND.

THAT'S WHAT IS WRITTEN IN

THE BIBLE.

AND IT IS TRUE, HE IS MY

HUSBAND AND THE HEAVENLY

FATHER OF MY CHILDREN.

HE IS LOOKING AFTER ALL OF

US.
