Supporting Our Soldiers: A Single Mom Finds Financial Peace

Share This article

When E-4 soldier, Alisha, joined the army, she knew she’d made the right choice. She is a single mom and has to budget very carefully. Alisha said, “You are trying to manage how to decide things like groceries, buying clothes for your baby. Because at this point it's not about me anymore. It’s all about her.”

When Alisha needed furniture, she had to take out a loan and make payments each month. Then her car was impounded over back property taxes. Alisha explained, “I was shocked, I was upset, I was angry. I was confused at the same time. I was like, why haven't I gotten anything in the mail?”

Alisha paid the back taxes. However, she didn’t have the $1,200 to get her vehicle out of impoundment. She had no choice but to rent a car. Alisha said, “My faith is very strong. Without the Lord, I don't know where I’d be.”

Manna Church, outside Fort Liberty, heard about Alisha and contacted CBN’S Helping the Home Front. Pastor, Tommy Cartwright, told her CBN was paying for her furniture and the rental car. Plus, he had one more surprise. Pastor Tommy explained, “When this interview is over, we are going to get your car out of impoundment, so you can drive it off the lot and take it home.”

Alisha exclaimed, “Thank you!”

That day, CBN paid the $1,200 impoundment fee. She picked up her vehicle and dropped off the rental car. Alisha can now focus on her duties and her daughter, without financial worry thanks to your support.

She concluded, “I’m grateful to CBN partners. My prayers have been answered thanks to CBN.”
