ESTELLE AGUAR WAS EXITED

ABOUT HER MOVE TO PHOENIX,

ARIZONA.

SHE FOUND PLENTY OF PLACES

TO GO HIKING AND LANDED A

GREAT JOB AS A MID-LEVEL

MANAGER IN A MARKETING

FIRM.

BUT IN 2008, THE RECESSION

HIT AND SHE WAS LAID OFF.

MY WHOLE WORLD FELL

APART, AND UNEMPLOYMENT

HADN'T KICKED IN YET.

Reporter: ESTELLE SOON

WENT THROUGH HER SAVINGS AND

HAD A TOUGH TIME KEEPING UP

WITH HER BILLS.

I HAD RUN OUT OF MONEY

AND THE CREDITORS WERE

CALLING.

I DIDN'T WANT TO DEAL WITH

MY PROBLEMS. BUT I ALSO

KNEW AT THAT TIME, TOO, THE

ONLY THING THAT WOULD HELP

ME OUT OF THIS WOULD BE

GOD.

Reporter: AT THE TIME,

ESTELLE WOULD OCCASIONALLY

GIVE TO HER CHURCH.

NOW WHEN THINGS WERE AT

THEIR WORST, SHE DECIDED IT

WAS TIME TO START TITHING

FAITHFULLY.

GOD SAYS, TEST ME ON

THIS.

I'M, OKAY, GOD, I'M GOING TO

TEST YOU ON THIS.

I'VE GOT NOWHERE ELSE TO

GO.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY

COMING IN, SO IF I HAD $21,

I WOULD GIVE $2.10.

Reporter: AND THEN HER

UNEMPLOYMENT ARRIVED.

I IMMEDIATELY WROTE 10%

TO OUR CHURCH FROM THAT

CHECK.

AND THE THEN I GOT A

CONTRACT JOB.

Reporter: ESTELLE

LANDED MORE CONTRACTS, BUT

THE WORK WASN'T STEADY.

SO IN JANUARY OF 2012, SHE

STARTED A SIDE BUSINESS AS A

SOCIAL MEDIA CONSULTANT.

SHE TITHED OFF EVERYTHING

SHE MADE.

WITHIN SIX MONTHS, ESTELLE

WAS ABLE TO WORK IN HER

BUSINESS FULL-TIME.

I HAD ENOUGH MONEY COMING

IN.

AND THAT WAS MY GOAL, TO BE

SELF-SUFFICIENT.

Reporter: SHE ALSO

STARTED GIVING TO CBN.

I WOULD SEE THE STORIES

OF THESE VILLAGES IN

THIRD-WORLD COUNTRIES THAT

DON'T EVEN HAVE FRESH,

DRINKABLE WATER.

JUST THE FACT YOU CAN BRING

IN A WELL, AND PEOPLE CAN

BRING IN FRESH DRINKING

WATER IS SOMETHING WE ATTACK

FOR GRANTED EVERY DAY.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF

THAT.

Reporter: TODAY HER

BUSINESS IS THRIVING.

I HAVE NOT HAD TO PAY FOR

ANY MARKETING OR ADVERTISING

OR PAY TO JOIN ANY

ORGANIZATION.

I GO NETWORKING, AND THE

PEOPLE START CALLING ME.

BUSINESS KEEPS FALLING IN MY

LAP.

Reporter: ESTELLE

BELIEVES THAT GOD BLESSES

HER BUSINESS AND HER LIFE

BECAUSE SHE IS FAITHFUL TO

GIVE.

IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE

TO THE HUMAN BRAIN, BUT GOD

SAYS, TRUST ME AND LEAN NOT

OWON YOUR OWN

UNDERSTANDINGMENT

UNDERSTANDING.

YOU HAVE TO TRY IT AND TRUST

GOD AND IT REELL REALLY

WORKS.
