God Has a Plan for You

Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, Nye worked as a nurse. Then she wound up a patient herself, when she went into respiratory failure. “They said I was gone for about 8 seconds,” Nye said. “The doctors believe that I had COVID, and that turned to pneumonia.” 

The single mom had to quit working as a nurse because she couldn’t risk further exposure to COVID.

Nye explained, “It was a very scary time for me not to be able to support my kids, so we were just honestly living off of the savings that I had accumulated. And once that started dwindling, I started panicking.”

Then her pastor at Freedom Church of Virginia Beach told her the church was starting a food pantry with the help of Operation Blessing. There, Nye received the food she needed to feed her family. 

“The food pantry actually helped me and my kids a lot. It gave us nourishment,” Nye told Operation Blessing staff. “God really answered my prayers.”

Nye’s pastor gave her the opportunity to run the food pantry, and she seized the chance to give back to the community again. “Anything for the Lord!” Nye exclaimed. “When we partnered with Operation Blessing, it opened opportunities for me to do what I know the Lord put me on this earth to do, and that’s to meet others that are in need. Even though I had the opportunity to feed others, He was feeding my family too.”

Thanks to Operation Blessing partners, Nye’s family made it through the rough patch. Now Nye is back to working full-time as a nurse and her family is thriving.

“The Lord has carried me through so many storms. He has covered me in so many ways,” Nye said, overcome with emotion. “I’m filled with so much joy and happiness.”
