No Boat Equals No Fish

Quintin is an excellent spearfisherman; but when a storm destroyed his boat, he lost his livelihood. Now he’s thanking God—and CBN partners—for re-launching his business. Read Transcript


MY FATHER TAUGHT ME SPEAR

FISHING TECHNIQUES, WITH THE

BLESSING OF THE SEA FOR OUR

LIVELIHOOD.

Reporter: HE NEVER

IMAGINED THAT THE SAME OCEAN

THAT PROVIDED FOOD FOR HIS

FAMILY WOULD DESTROY HIS

BOAT.

BUT THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED

WHEN A TYPHOON RIPPED

THROUGH THEIR TOWNS.

WE HAD TO HOLD ON TO THE

TREES UNTIL THE WATER WENT

DOWN.

MY BOAT WAS TIED TO THIS

TREE, BUT IT BROKE INTO

THREE PARTS AND ENDED UP ON

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BAY.

Reporter: FOR THREE

DAYS, THE COUPLE SURVIVED ON

COCONUTS AND RICE.

OUR SITUATION WAS

HOPELESS.

I KNEW WE COULDN'T DEPEND ON

THE RELIEF SUPPLIES

FOREVER.

I HAD TO START FISHING

AGAIN, BUT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE

WITHOUT A BOAT.

Reporter: HE JOINED

WITH OTHER FISHERMEN AND

RENTED A BOAT TO FISH, BUT

AFTER THE RENT, THERE WAS

LITTLE LEFT FOR FOOD.

THEY JOINED TOGETHER AND

BUILT BOATS, WITH CBN.

I AM VERY PLEASED WITH

THE MATERIALS CBN USED FOR

THE BOAT.

IT IS BIGGER THAN THE BOAT I

LOST.

I CAN GO ANYWHERE TO FISH.

Reporter: HE IS NOW

FISHING IN DEEPER WATERS,

AND HE MADE ENOUGH EXTRA

MONEY TO START A CRAFT

BUSINESS FOR HIS WIFE.

IT WAS A TOTAL DISASTER.

GOD USED CBN TO GIVE US THIS

GREAT HOPE.

I WISH I COULD HUG ALL OF

YOU WHO GIVE TO CBN.

THANK YOU.
