When You Can’t Afford To See

Robert is a blessing to his community and a father to nine orphans, but when he started losing his eyesight, he didn’t know what to do. See how you helped this remarkable man and his family. Read Transcript


Reporter: ROBERT

WILLIAMS IS A SOURCE OF HOPE

AND JOY TO MANY POOR PEOPLE

LIVING IN DEHLI, INDIA.

AND FOR THESE NINE ORPHANS,

HE IS ALSO A LOVING FATHER.

IT BRINGS ME GREAT

HAPPINESS TO HELP THESE

CHILDREN.

Reporter: BUT

RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS CAUSED

A CATARACT IN ROBERT'S RIGHT

EYE.

HE COULDN'T AFFORD AN

OPERATION.

WHEN I CHECK THEIR

HOMEWORK, I CAN BARELY SEE

WHAT THEY'VE WRITTEN.

AND IT IS ALSO HARD FOR ME

TO READ THE BIBLE TO THEM.

MY KIDS AND I PRAYED THAT

THE LORD WOULD SOMEHOW ALLOW

THIS OPERATION TO HAPPEN.

Reporter: AND THEN

ROBERT REMEMBERED HOW CBN

HAD HELPED SOME OF HIS

NEIGHBORS WHEN THEY

DESPERATELY NEEDED IT.

THEY TOLD ME THEY WOULD

SPONSOR THE ENTIRE

OPERATION.

Reporter: ROBERT KNEW

IF THE OPERATION WAS A

SUCCESS, IT WOULD MAKE A

HUGE DIFFERENCE IN HIS LIFE

AND HIS ORPHANS'.

WHEN WE VISITED ROBERT A FEW

WEEKS LATER, HIS CHILDREN

COULDN'T WAIT TO SHOW US ALL

OF THE THINGS THEY COULD NOW

DO WITH HIM.

WE PRAYED AND GOD

ANSWERED OUR PRAYERS.

WE LOVE TO HAVE HIM READ

BIBLE STORIES AGAIN.

I REALLY LOVE WHEN HE

TELLS US ABOUT ALL OF THE

MIRACLES JESUS DID.

I HAVE CLEAR VISION NOW.

AND IF THERE ARE ANY

COMPLICATED QUESTIONS IN

THEIR HOMEWORK, I CAN ANSWER

THEM.

I WANT TO GIVE CBN MY

DEEPEST THANKS.

BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP, MY

FAITH HAS GROWN.

WHAT SEEMED TO BE IMPOSSIBLE

WAS MADE POSSIBLE.
