Mother and Son Reunited

Unable to support her son, Maria sent him to live with her sister. The homesick boy was miserable, and Maria missed him desperately. Things got worse. Only God could bring about a reunion. Try not to cry when you see this! Read Transcript


Reporter: GUSTAVO WAS

EXCITED THE DAY HE WENT TO

VISIT HIS AUNT AND UNCLE,

WHO LIVE MORE THAN 200 MILES

AWAY FROM HIS HOME IN PERU.

I GOT TO WRITE ON A BOARD

WHEN EWENT T I WENT TO GO.

Reporter: WHAT GUSTAVO

DIDN'T UNDERSTAND IS HE HAD

TO GO BECAUSE HIS PARENTS

COULDN'T AFFORD TO FEED

HIM.

MY SISTER SAID IF I SENT

HIM, SHE WOULD PUT HIM IN

SCHOOL.

BUT EVEN THAT DIDN'T WORK

OUT.

Reporter: IT HAD BEEN A

TOUGH YEAR FOR GUSTAVO'S

FAMILY.

HIS GRANDMA ALMOST DIED.

AND THE FAMILY BORROWED

MONEY ON A SHORT-TERM LOAN

FOR HER TREATMENT.

WE HAD TO PAY $50 A DAY

IN ORDER TO SETTLE THE

LOAN.

WE JUST COULDN'T AFFORD IT.

Reporter: THEY SOLD

EVERYTHING, INCLUDING AN OLD

CAR, TO HELP PAY OFF THE

DEBT.

BUT THEY ONLY RAISED ABOUT

HALF OF WHAT THEY NEEDED.

GUSTAVO'S DAD DRIVES A

RENTED TAXI, AND HIS INCOME

BARELY FED THE CHILDREN.

WHEN "OPERATION BLESSING"

LEARNED ABOUT THE FAMILY,

THE FIRST THING WE DID WAS

PAY OFF THE DEBT THEY

OWNED.

AND THEN WE HELPED GUSTAVO'S

MOM SET UP A FRUIT AND VEG

AVAILABLE STANVEGETABLE

STAND OUTSIDE THEIR HOME.

WHEN I SAW THAT

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAD ALL

OF THOSE FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES FOR ME, I WAS

VERY HAPPY.

MY BUSINESS IS GOING VERY

WELL.

Reporter: THERE WAS ONE

MORE THING WE DECIDED TO DO,

TO BRING GUSTAVO HOME.

WHEN HE SAW HIS FAMILY, HE

RAN INTO HIS MOTHER'S ARMS.

I WAS HAPPY TO SEE MY MOM

AND BROTHERS AND SISTER

AGAIN.

Reporter: TODAY GUSTAVO

IS ALSO IN SCHOOL FOR THE

FIRST TIME, THANKS TO

ANOTHER HAND FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING."

ALL OF THIS IS A GIFT

FROM GOD.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR EVERYTHING.
