Reporter: WHEN FALISA

ALLEN WAS 19 YEARS OLD, SHE

GOT PREGNANT AND BECAME A

MOM.

SHE LOVED HER DAUGHTER

LANIE, BUT WITH NO ONE TO

HELP HER, SHE FELL INTO A

DEEP DEPRESSION.

I THINK I JUST LOST IT.

I WAS VERY ISOLATED.

I FELT VERY ALONE.

Reporter: THAT ALL

CHANGED WHEN HER UNCLE

TALKED TO HER ABOUT GOD.

SHE PRAYED AND GAVE HER LIFE

TO GOD.

JESUS REALLY STARTED

TALKING TO ME.

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW GOD WAS

REAL, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I

OPENED HIS BIBLE AND ALL OF

THESE QUESTIONS WERE BEING

ANSWERED.

Reporter: SHE MOVED TO

BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA, AND

SHE WENT TO MINISTRY

SCHOOL.

BUT SHE HAD A HARD TIME

WORKING, GOING TO SCHOOL,

AND PROVIDING FOR A FAMILY.

IT IS HARD TO PROVIDE FOR

A LITTLE GIRL.

Reporter: SHE FOUND

HELP THROUGH THE CHURCH.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PARTNERS WITH "HEALING

PLACE."

PASTOR TERRY FRANKS WORKS IN

THE OUTREACH CENTER.

WE BELIEVE "OPERATION

BLESSING" AND OUR

PARTNERSHIPS CAN GO SO FAR.

WHAT IT DOES IS OPENS THAT

DOOR, SO YOU CAN SHARE THE

GOSPEL WITH THEM.

WHEN YOUR CABINETS GET

BARE, SOMETIMES YOU KNOW

WHERE THE NEXT MEAL IS GOING

TO COME FROM.

AND YOU WALK IN, AND HERE IS

THIS BAG FULL OF GROCERIES.

IT IS THE BIGGEST RELIEF YOU

CAN IMAGINE.

Reporter: SHE GRADUATED

FROM THE MINISTRY PROGRAM.

AND TODAY SHE WORKS

FULL-TIME FOR A NON-PROFIT

THAT MINISTERS TO SINGLE

MOMS.

I HAVE SO MUCH JOY.

I CAN'T WAIT TO WAKE UP AND

SEE HOW GOD IS GOING TO USE

ME.

Reporter: WITH THE HELP

OF "OPERATION BLESSING," SHE

AND HER DAUGHTER KEPT FROM

GOING HUNGRY, GREW CLOSER TO

GOD, AND ARE NOW ABLE TO

GIVE BACK BY HELPING

OTHERS.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

PUTTING FOOD ON MY TABLE,

FOR FEEDING MY DAUGHTER WHEN

I COULDN'T.

IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE.

IT IS A RELIEF TO ME, AS A

MOM, A SINGLE MOM, JUST TO

BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH THAT

MONTH UNTIL MY NEXT

PAYCHECK.
