Family Business Struggles to Survive

Alon and Hannah moved to Israel from the U.S. to start a business. They soon discovered they needed more funds to operate than they planned. Things got so bad that they had to choose between paying bills and buying food. See how CBN partners ... ... Read Transcript

NARRATOR: Elon and Hannah Wagner are Messianic Jews

who immigrated to Jerusalem from the United States

with their children.

HANNAH WAGNER: We really wanted to be

in the center of God's will.

And we knew that that was His will

for us to return to Jerusalem, to His land.

NARRATOR: They tried to start a cleaning business

like the one they had in America,

but soon wound up in debt.

ELON WAGNER: In the beginning, I thought

it was gonna be like in the States.

But here it is difficult. Because the money that I make,

that was not enough.

HANNAH WAGNER: It was just a lot of stress in adopting

to the culture, to the country.

It was a lot of mixed emotions.

NARRATOR: The Wagners kept working and believing God

would help them, but there were days

when they struggled to get by.

HANNAH WAGNER: There was a few times

that we didn't have enough for the food, to cover our bills.

ELON WAGNER: Sometime my wife say,

we don't have enough to eat.

So that was very hard for me.

NARRATOR: That's what a friend from

their Messianic congregation told them about CDN Israel.

First, we made sure the family had enough food to make it

through this tough time.

Then we met with the Wagners, and taught them

how to manage their business better.

We even got them a professional floor polisher,

so they can do larger, better-paying jobs.

ELON WAGNER: They buy me the machine, and thank God,

I use the machine, and I make money.

We can live better and we can give the testimony

to the others.

HANNAH WAGNER: We are very grateful to CDN

and to this ministry that has blessed us so much.

My prayer is that you will receive

100 times what you have put in, and this ministry

and in this land to help the families.

That the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

will bless you abundantly.

Yeshua ha-Mashiach.
