Reporter: ZERA HAS 11

CHILDREN.

THE YOUNGEST FOUR LIVE AT

HOME.

THEY HAVE NO ELECTRICITY OR

RUNNING WATER, AND AN OLD

STOVE BARELY KEEPS THE HOUSE

WARM.

ZERA'S HUSBAND IS DISABLED,

AND SHE CAN'T FIND STEADY

WORK.

SOMETIMES I GO WEEKS

WITHOUT WORK.

SOMETIMES I'M FORCED TO BEG

BECAUSE WE MUST FEED OUR

CHILDREN.

TODAY THEY HAD NOTHING TO

EAT YET, AND I DON'T HAVE

ANYTHING TO FEED THEM.

Reporter: SHE RELIES ON

HER FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST

EVERY DAY.

AND THAT'S GIVEN HER A

COMPASSIONATE HEART.

RECENTLY I TOOK IN A GIRL

WHO HAD NO FATHER OR

MOTHER.

SHE LIVED HERE AND THERE A

FEW DAYS AT A TIME, AND I

FELT SORRY FOR HER.

I KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO

LIVE THAT WAY.

SHE IS A GOOD GIRL.

Reporter: FOR YEARS

ZERA HAS PRAYED FOR A BETTER

HOME.

I DO NOT HAVE MONEY TO

BUY A GOOD HOUSE.

ALL I WANT IS A FEW BEDS, A

CABINET, AND A TABLE.

THOSE THINGS ARE TOO

EXPENSIVE FOR ME.

BUT I KNOW WITH ALL THINGS

GOD IS POSSIBLE.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD IS KIND

AND HE WILL NOT FORSAKE US.

Reporter: WITHOUT A

BETTER HOUSE, WE KNEW THAT

ALL OF THE KIDS WERE IN

DANGER OF BEING TAKEN BY

SOCIAL SERVICES AND PUT INTO

AN ORPHANAGE.

WE WANTED TO KEEP THIS

FAMILY TOGETHER.

SO CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

BUILT THEM A NEW HOME AND

GAVE EVERYONE NEW BEDS.

NOW I KNOW GOD HEARD MY

PRAYERS.

SEEING THE NEW HOUSE FILLS

ME WITH PRIDE AND JOY.

I LIKE OUR NEW HOUSE.

WE HAVE PLACES TO PLAY

AND TO SLEEP.

IT IS NICE.

THIS HOUSE IS A LOT BETTER

THAN WHAT WE HAD BEFORE.

I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE

WHO HELPED US.

FROM THE PEOPLE WHO DONATED,

TO THE ONES WHO BUILT THE

HOUSE.

EVERY NIGHT I THANK GOD FOR

THIS BLESSING.
