We No Longer Go Without Food!

Jorge was a wood cutter by trade until one day a log fell and broke his leg in three places. He needed surgery to repair it, recalling, “Now I am thinking, 'How will my family survive if I am not there to provide for them?'"

He spent the next two months languishing at a government hospital because he could not afford to pay for the surgery that he needed. Jorge shared, “I cried in the hospital bed thinking about it.”

Meanwhile, his wife, Dolores, was home trying to pay for food for her children. Dolores said, “Just one week after the accident we were running out of money.” 

With a few dollars she’d saved Dolores started a business selling food. But they barely earned a dollar a day in profits and ran out of money. Six-year old Gabriela said they all went hungry, “It seemed like we did not eat a lot. We only drank water. At night I would get up to drink another glass of water and go back to bed.” 

When Operation Blessing in Honduras met the family, we paid for Jorge to receive the surgery he needed to repair the broken bones in his leg. Then to help Dolores provide for the children, we gave her what she needed to start a new business selling chips and snacks. Gabriela said, “They brought a stove and pans to make the chips. They brought everything.” 

Several months later Jorge was back to work as cutting trees. And since his wife’s business is doing so well, he helps with that too. Dolores explained, “With the money we earned, we fixed the floor in our house and even added electricity. And we no longer go without food for our children.”

Jorge shared, “I know that God will greatly bless you for what you did for me. The people who helped me are like angels on earth. May God bless you. This will be a testimony of God’s provision for us and I will tell it to everyone!” Gabriela, gratefully expressed, “Thank you for helping us!”
