Mr. Guous’ dream of returning to his hometown was crushed when he discovered his old house and land ruined. All he could afford to rent was a cave where his daughter got pneumonia. Learn how God not only restored his dream but gave him a ... Read Transcript


Terry: HE DREAMED OF

MOVING HOME, WHEN HE COULD

START A BUSINESS AND RAISE

HIS DAUGHTER IN THE VERY

HOUSE HE HAD GROWN UP IN.

WHEN HE FINALLY MADE IT

BACK, HE WAS DEVASTATED.

MY OLD HOUSE HAD

COLLAPSED, AND THE LAND MY

FAMILY ONCE HAD WAS A MESS.

THERE WAS NO WAY I WOULD BE

ABLE TO PRODUCE ANY CROPS OR

START A NEW LIFE.

I FELT SORRY FOR MY

DAUGHTER.

Terry: ALL MR. GUA

COULD AFFORD TO RENT WAS A

RUNDOWN, ONE-ROOM APARTMENT

INSIDE A CAVE FOR $9 MONTH.

THE WIND BLEW RIGHT IN.

WHEN IT RAINED, THE HOUSE

LEAKED.

AND IT WAS VERY HOT IN THE

SUMMERTIME.

THE PLACE WAS DANGEROUS.

Terry: HIS DAUGHTER GOT

PNEUMONIA SEVERAL TIMES.

SHE WASN'T ABLE TO GET

THE REST SHE NEEDED TO

GROW.

I WANTED SO MUCH MORE FOR

HER.

I WANTED HER TO HAVE A WARM,

COMFORTABLE PLACE TO LIVE.

MY HUSBAND TRIED TO MAKE

THINGS RIGHT FOR US, BUT

INSIDE I FELT LIKE THERE WAS

NOTHING BUT ROADBLOCKS

AHEAD.

Terry: THEN CBN OFFERED

TO HELP.

FIRST WE GAVE HIM 25 GOATS.

THIS WAS EXACTLY WHAT WE

NEEDED.

I WOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE MY

BUSINESS AFTER ALL.

AND MY DAUGHTER WOULD GET TO

HAVE A HAPPY CHILDHOOD.

Terry: THE MILK FROM

THE GOATS MADE IT POSSIBLE

FOR HER TO GROW.

AND SOON SHE WOULD HAVE A

BRAND NEW HOME, ONE THAT CBN

HELPED TO BUILD.

I CRIED WHEN I HEARD THE

NEWS.

I HELD MY DAUGHTER AND SAID,

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A NEW

HOME.

THE HOUSE YOU BUILT US IS

BETTER THAN I EVER DREAMED

OF.

IT IS BIG AND BRIGHT AND

WARM.

AND WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR

THE BLANKETS, TOO.

IT IS NOT JUST A PLACE TO

LIVE.

IT IS HOPE FOR OUR FUTURE.

YOU GAVE US COURAGE TO

OVERCOME PROBLEMS.

AND YOU GAVE MY HUSBAND THE

RESOURCES AND THE CONFIDENCE

HE NEEDS TO PROVIDE A GOOD

LIFE FOR US.

YOU HAVE GIVEN US THE

GREATEST GIFT WE HAVE EVER

RECEIVED.
