40 SECONDS, THAT'S ALL IT

TOOK FOR AN EARTHQUAKE TO TAKE

THE LIFE OF HER HUSBAND WHERE

HE WORKED.

WHEN I HEARD MY HUSBAND'S

DEAD, I WAS IN SHOCK.

IT WASN'T UNTIL THREE DAYS

LATER THAT I REALIZED WE'D LOST

OUR HOME, TOO.

AT FIRST SHE AND HER THREE

DAUGHTERS WE HADTHV TO LIVE AT

A SHELTER.

EACH NIGHT THERE THE GIRLS

CRIED FOR THEIR DADDY AND FOR

THEIR HOME.

I TELL MY MOM TO TAKE US

FROM THE SHELTER, LET'S GO, AND

I WANTED TO BE IN MY HOUSE.

MY DAUGHTERS WOULD CAUSE ME

GREAT PAIN.

I TOLD THEM TO PUT THEIR FAITH

IN GOD, BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

TO DO.

I DIDN'T HAVE A JOB, NO MONEY

EVEN TO BUY FOOD.

THAT'S WHEN OPERATION

BLESSING ARRIVED WITH FOOD,

WATER, MEDICINE, AND BLANKETS

FOR THE 15,000 EARTHQUAKE

VICTIMS.

WE THEN DECIDED THAT SHE AND

HER CHILDREN WOULD BE AMONG THE

FIRST TO RECEIVE A BRAND-NEW

HOME.

WHEN I GOT THE NEWS THAT

OPERATION BLESSING WAS BUILDING

US A HOUSE, I THOUGHT, GOD HAS

ANSWERED MY PRAYERS AND QUICKLY.

IN A COUPLE OF DAYS HER

HOUSE WAS FINISHED AND THEY

WERE ABLE TO MOVE IN.

MY HOUSE IS VERY PRETTY.

WE REALLY LIKE IT AND ARE

HAPPY.

BUT WE KNEW THAT AS A WIDOW

SHE ALSO NEEDED A WAY TO

SUPPORT HER FAMILY.

SO, WE BOUGHT HER A COMMERCIAL

CORN GRINDER TO START A SMALL

BUSINESS.

WITH THE PROFITS SHE CAN BUY

FOOD AND PAY FOR OTHER LIVING

EXPENSES.

SHE COULD NOT BELIEVE HER EYES

WHEN WE GAVE HER THE GRINDER.

SHE TOLD US IT WAS THE VERY

THING THAT SHE HAD WANTED TO

BUY TO START A SMALL BUSINESS.

THANK YOU FOR THE GRINDER

AND MY HOUSE AND MY NEW

BUSINESS.

YOU HAVE SHOWN ME I'M NOT ALONE

AND GOD DID NOT ABANDON ME OR

MY DAUGHTERS.

THANK YOU.
