Surviving a Layoff

Tracey was working while Vince finished school, but a sudden layoff left them without income. Would anyone help this struggling couple? Read Transcript


THE FAMILY LOVES BASEBALL

BUT PASTIME WAS THE LAST

THING

ON THEIR MIND BECAUSE SHE

LOST

HER JOB.

ALL I CAN THINK IS WHAT AM

I GOING TO DO. HOW AM I GOING

TO FEED MY KIDS.

VINCE WAS WORKING HARD

FINISHING TRADE SCHOOL.

WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW WE WERE

GOING TO MAKE IT. IT WAS A

REFLECTION ON ME TO NOT

PROVIDE. IT WAS HARD.

I REMEMBER FEELING

HELPLESS. THE MORE WE CUT

BACK, THE MORE IMPOSSIBLE IT

LOOKED AND AT THAT POINT GOD,

YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO DO

SOMETHING.

THEY TURNED TO GOD FOR

COMFORT AND STAYED IN PRAYER.

THEN THEY WERE TOLD ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING".

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE STILL

WITHOUT JOBS, PEOPLE ARE

STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY AND WE

WANT TO GIVE PEOPLE HOPE. GOD

USED "OPERATION BLESSING" TO

PROVIDE WHAT WE NEED.

WE STARTED GOING EVERY

WEEK. WE WOULD MAKE IT

THROUGH.

I COME HOME AND SEE THOSE

GROCERIES AND I KNOW SHE

DIDN'T SPEND ALL THIS MONEY

AT

A GROCERY STORE BECAUSE WE

DIDN'T HAVE THAT KIND OF

MUCH.

IT WOULD BLOW ME AWAY.

VINCE STARTED A JOB AND

SHE

STARTED TEACHING AT A SCHOOL

AND NOW THEY ARE VOLUNTEERING

WITH WAREHOUSE OF HOPE.

NOT ONLY DID IT BECOME A

MINISTRY FOR US BUT WE WERE

ABLE TO BLESS PEOPLE. THAT

WAS

OBVIOUSLY A GREAT FEELING.

WHEN WE WERE HURTING, WHEN WE

DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY, IT WAS

A LIFESAVER.

WE WERE LOST AT HOPE AND

THAT DEFINITELY DID HELP US.

THANK YOU.
