Reporter: CHRIS WAS

GOOD AT FABRICATING

COUNTERTOPS.

EVERYTHING WAS GOING FINE

UNTIL THE ECONOMY TOOK A

HIT, AND CHRIS LOST HIS

JOB.

WHEN HE GOT THE NEWS HE

WAS BEING LET GO, HE WAS

HEARTBROKEN.

WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW WE WERE

GOING TO MAKE IT.

BEING USED TO HAVING

ENOUGH INCOME TO PAY THE

BILLS, PROVIDE FOOD AND

DIAPERS AND EVERYTHING FOR

THE BABY.

RECENTLY LOSING A FULL-TIME

JOB, IT HAS BEEN A

STRUGGLE.

Reporter: CHRIS WORKED

A PART-TIME JOB AT NIGHT,

TAKING CARE OF MENTALLY

CHALLENGED ADULTS.

HE ENJOYED HELPING PEOPLE,

BUT THE HOURS WEREN'T ENOUGH

TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

THINGS HAPPEN, AND YOU

HAVE TO COPE WITH IT, ADJUST

TO IT, AND DRIVE ON.

Reporter: THEY SOLD

THINGS FROM AROUND THE HOUSE

ON THE INTERNET, TO HELP

THEM GET BY WHILE CHRIS

LOOKED FOR MORE WORK.

ONE MONTH, WHEN THEY DIDN'T

HAVE ENOUGH MONEY FOR FOOD,

CHRIS EVEN SOLD HIS WEDDING

RING.

IT HAS NOT BEEN EASY

SINCE HE LOST HIS FULL-TIME

JOB.

WE STRUGGLED A GREAT DEAL.

Reporter: CHRIS AND

RACHEL TURN TO THEIR CHURCH

FOR PRAYER AND SUPPORT.

THROUGH THE CHURCH, CHRIS

LEARNED ABOUT "OPERATION

BLESSING'S" PARTNER "NEW

BEGINNINGS" OUT REACH.

I WAS ALWAYS ONE TO

DONATE, AND I NEVER THOUGHT

I WOULD BE ON THE OTHER

END.

BUT IT WAS A BLESSING TO OUR

FAMILY, WHEN WE NEEDED IT,

IT WAS THERE.

Reporter: "NEW

BEGINNINGS" PROVIDES TO FOOD

TO OVER 100 LOCAL FAMILIES

EVERY MONTH.

WE JUST WANT TO SHOW

GOD'S LOVE AND BLESSING.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HELPS

US GIVE TO THEM.

PEOPLE CARE.

GOD LOVES YOU.

AND THERE IS A DIFFERENCE HE

CAN MAKE IN YOUR LIFE.

Reporter: THANKS TO THE

HELP OF "OPERATION

BLESSING," CHRIS IS NOW ABLE

TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE FOR

HIS WIFE AND BABY AND PAY

ALL OF THE BILLS, WHILE HE

CONTINUES TO SEARCH FOR

FULL-TIME WORK.

THE FOOD WE RECEIVE FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

BEEN TREMENDOUS.

YOU WAKE UP IN THE

MORNING WONDERING HOW YOU

CAN PROVIDE FOR YOUR FAMILY,

IT BROUGHT TEARS TO YOUR

EYES THAT IN THE DESPERATION

I'M IN, HERE IS A LITTLE RAY

OF SUNSHINE.
