Are You Childless and Praying for a Baby?

Are You Childless and Praying for a Baby?

If you are, then perhaps you can relate to Lorelie Zablan’s story.

Lorelie could not count how many times she had prayed and hoped for a baby. When she and her husband married, they wanted to get pregnant right away.

Are You Childless and Praying for a Baby?

But, after six long years of trying, the couple still remained childless. They eventually found out that Lorelie has Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) which prevented her from conceiving.

“The egg cell doesn’t multiply; it is not enough for me to conceive. I was also thinking, what if my husband looks for another woman because I cannot give him a child? I was so scared,” Lorelie shared.

All her horrors came to life when her spouse confessed that he was having an affair.

Scared, frustrated, and devastated, Lorelie spiraled into depression. She couldn’t help feeling that she failed as a woman and as a wife.

She recalled, “It came to a point where I asked my husband, ‘Am I ugly? How could you do that to me?’ He said the problem was not me. But when you’re in that situation, how else would you think? I didn’t know what to do.”

Lorelie got an answer while watching The 700 Club Asia.

Inspired by the encouraging prayers of the hosts, she got in touch with the CBN Asia Prayer Center. She poured out all her emotions, hoping that one day, her miracle would come.

Are You Childless and Praying for a Baby?

“I texted my prayer requests to the Prayer Center. I was praying for a baby and asking God to restore my marriage,” Lorelie said.

The prayers from the Prayer Center inspired Lorelie so much that she wanted to share the comfort she received. Partnering her prayers with obedience, she decided to donate 500 pesos every month to the ministry. She also learned to forgive her husband.

“God helped us fix our marriage,” Lorelie said. “My husband asked for forgiveness and showed me that he regretted all his actions.”

Two months after she watched The 700 Club Asia, Lorelie became pregnant!

She gave birth to a healthy baby boy and named him Elijah Dave – a symbol of God’s hope and strength in their lives.

Are You Childless and Praying for a Baby?

“God surprised me! My husband and I burst out crying. It was an unexplainable feeling. Even though we had problems in our marriage, God still blessed us with a child.”

Lorelie once longed for a baby. Now, her heart is overflowing with the testimony of God’s miracles and blessings!

She continued, “When I saw my baby for the first time, I could not contain my happiness. I felt whole. Nothing is impossible with God!”

Are You Childless and Praying for a Baby?

Like Lorelie, are you childless and praying for a baby?

Waiting is not easy, especially when it is beyond your control. Thankfully, those who wait and trust in God will have the strength to press on.

Don’t give up on your miracle. Keep on praying, believing, and standing firmly on His promises!

“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” (Psalm 27:14 NIV)

Send Hope and Relief to Our Typhoon-Affected Kababayans! Here’s How

Nothing – even the pandemic – can stop natural disasters from happening.

That is why nothing – even the pandemic – can stop Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, from reaching out to our affected kababayans!

Operation Blessing braved the strong winds, rising floods, and heavy rains brought by Typhoon Fabian to deliver hope and relief to indigenous families in Oriental Mindoro.

One of the beneficiaries is Popoy, a member of the Hanunuo Mangyan Tribe residing in the town of Mansalay.

Like many of our indigenous kababayans, Popoy had a rough past. As a young teen, he was led into joining an opposition group, believing that it would make his life better. Young, confused, and broken, Popoy did not realize the danger ahead of him.

“I thought joining a rebel group would be the best decision because I had nowhere to go, and I had nothing to do. I had a problem with my family, so I decided to join them, even though I was not sure what kind of group it was,” Popoy shared in vernacular.

Due to the rebellious nature of the group, Popoy had witnessed things no 14-year-old should witness. He lived in overwhelming fear until he finally decided to leave the group, in hopes of living a normal, peaceful life.

He confessed, “I felt bad for my wife and my child. I didn’t want to do it anymore. After everything that happened, I saw the way to embrace light and change for the better. I really hoped this was the start of our good life.”

However, Popoy found that starting a “good life” can be extremely difficult, especially in the middle of a pandemic and a calamity at the same time. Thankfully, he was listed as one of the beneficiaries of Operation Blessing’s livelihood assistance!

Through the help of the Armed Forces of the Philippines 4th Infantry Battalion and 203rd Brigade, Mansalay’s local government unit, and our church partner, Popoy and 43 other beneficiaries received much-needed farming tools and livelihood support.

Popoy can now support his family and start anew!

“I am very thankful to Operation Blessing. I have never seen this kind of generosity before. You are true to your word. These tools are necessary for our survival and it’s something that we can cherish for a lifetime,” Popoy ended.

You can help us help more!

Many communities are still recovering from the recent typhoon. Access to food, water, gas, and electricity remains challenging in many areas. With your help, we can alleviate their suffering.

Together, we can bring aid to families who are severely affected by Typhoon Fabian! Together, can send hope and relief to our kababayans!

Here’s How You are Helping a Father Walk Again!

Hours turned into days.

Days turned into weeks.

Weeks turned into months.

Francisco Armario spent nine months in his bed because of the debilitating pain on his legs. The last three months were the worst –he could not even move, do household chores, nor go to the bathroom on his own.

Above all these, Francisco’s livelihood suffered. His family could not afford to bring him to the hospital because they did not have money to pay for his medical bills.

“It was November 2020 when I first walked in pain. Months after, I cannot walk nor stand anymore; I am bedridden. As a father, it was so painful for me to see my family struggling,” Francisco lamented.

This is what happens when a member of a low-income family gets sick. And their difficulties are compounded by the present pandemic. They have to endure the pain while being cooped up in their own homes.

Waiting.

Wondering if they could ever get the medical treatment they need.

Francisco’s situation showed that anyone can experience health problems but not everyone can afford to get treatment. Healthcare becomes a privilege for our most vulnerable kababayans.

Thankfully, Franciso held on to hope.

“Because of my condition, I learned to pray to God more and seek Him wholeheartedly,” he shared.

Extremely worried about Francisco’s situation, his sister reached out to Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm. Francisco’s family’s prayers were answered when they received a response.

Operation Blessing visited Francisco and gave him free medical consultation and took care of his medication. Although he has yet to complete a series of checkups, he is now more hopeful and full of vigor.

“It is really a huge help for me and my family. I am very thankful to God for using Operation Blessing as an instrument of help and healing for me!” Francisco ended.

Because of your compassion and unwavering support to Operation Blessing, Francisco can walk again. Together, we continue to extend help to our vulnerable kababayans who urgently need medical assistance.

Are You Struggling to Forgive?

Are You Struggling to Forgive?

If you are struggling with forgiveness, then you can relate to Angeline’s story.

What would you do if you were given an opportunity to go to college?

Most people would agree that a good education is a ticket to a brighter future. But for Angeline Gacosta, it is a perfect plot for revenge.

Are You Struggling to Forgive?

Angeline went to college and took up Criminology because she wanted to have a gun. She thought that maybe a gun could protect her from bad people, from abusers… from her own father.

To say that Angeline hates her father would be an understatement. Time heals all wounds for some people, but for Angeline, the pain her father inflicted on her still stung even after all these years. His beatings. His cruel words. She remembers everything as if they were just yesterday.

“I did not feel that my father ever loved me because of the things he did to me,” Angeline lamented.

Are You Struggling to Forgive?

But more than the bruises and wounds from his fists, Angeline’s father did what no father should ever do to an innocent child. Angeline was molested by her own father.

She was too young to know what was “normal behavior” then, but she felt what her father did to her was wrong. What hurts her more is that her mother knew about it, but she did not do anything to stop him.

“My mother was in denial about what happened. Growing up, I had to force a smile or a laugh to hide all my fears,” Angeline cried. “I told myself that I will not be a girl. I will hide my pain and would never let any man touch me again.”

Are You Struggling to Forgive?

Dread overtook Angeline when she realized that their home had not been a safe place for her growing up. The trauma and the horrible memories from her father’s abuse and her mom’s denial of it left Angeline angry, confused, scared, and scarred for a long time.

To mask her pain, Angeline dressed and behaved like a man. She took all the rage she felt toward men and tried beating up her younger brother. The pain affected almost every area of her life.

“I took up Criminology because, with a gun, I could protect myself from men,” Angeline confessed “Eventually, I realized that taking that course just so I can avenge myself was wrong.”

Are You Struggling to Forgive?

However, her epiphany wasn’t enough to dissolve all the hate in her heart. Angeline spiraled into depression and decided to end all her miseries.

“Before jumping off our school building, I prayed, ‘Lord, why did this happen to me? Why is my family like this?’” Angeline recalled.

Do you, like Angeline, struggle to forgive? Do you find it difficult to let go of your painful past?

Trust that God can set you free!

Believe that there is a loving God who can help you let go of any pain or bitterness. Believe that He can mend your brokenness and make you feel whole again!

Are You Struggling to Forgive?

This has been true to Angeline. Just before she jumped off the building, God spoke to her heart.

She remembered, “The wind blew, and I heard a voice saying, ‘Hold on, My child. I love you. I am here for you.’ It was the first time I heard God’s voice.”

Angeline got to know God better when she joined Youth with a Mission – a Christian movement that helped her realize God’s purpose for her life. As she experienced God’s transforming love, she also learned to forgive her parents and herself.

“I had to release forgiveness so that I could forgive myself, too. If it wasn’t for God, I never could have forgiven my father. I never would have asked the forgiveness of my brother,” Angeline said.

Are You Struggling to Forgive?

She discovered that time doesn’t heal all wounds – forgiveness does. And if you are struggling to forgive someone who hurt you deeply, Angeline has a message for you:

“We just have to embrace life’s challenges and allow them to point us to our faithful Lord. Troubles come and go, but God’s love remains forever,” Angeline ended.

Are You Struggling to Forgive?

Come to Jesus and let Him help you break free from the shackles of your past. Call upon Him and let His power lift all your heartaches, pain, and unforgiveness.

God is willing to give you a new heart – a heart that truly loves and truly forgives. Just ask for it!

“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT)

Derly and her husband experienced one of the worst tragedies any parent could ever go through – the loss of their unborn child due to ectopic pregnancy. Here's how she found hope and healing from God.

Do You Need Hope and Healing Today?

Derly Panganiban and her husband experienced one of the worst tragedies any parent could ever go through – the loss of their unborn child due to ectopic pregnancy.

Do You Need Hope and Healing Today?

It happened so fast that it left the couple reeling from their loss.

Derly could not bear losing their second baby and the tragedy left her traumatized. She quietly grieved for her baby.

The pain consumed her and she could not see the light at the end of this season filled with regrets and fear.

Do You Need Hope and Healing Today?

“It was so painful. I loved my child and I thought I took care of us very well.” Derly lamented, “But now, my baby is gone.”

She blamed herself for the tragedy and wondered if their marriage could even survive. “What would my husband think?” She worried, “What if his love for me changed?”

Do You Need Hope and Healing Today?

Even in these dark times, Derly still believed that God saw her brokenness and somehow, she knew that He could heal her shattered heart. Her relationship with God became her strength during this very difficult time.

She didn’t know when or how but she knew that in the midst of her tears, she would find hope and peace.

Thankfully, Derly came across The 700 Club Asia the exact moment the host prayed for a woman who just underwent a medical operation and doubted if she could still bear a child.

Do You Need Hope and Healing Today?

Encouraged by the prayer, Derly believed that if it was God’s will for her to get pregnant again, it would happen.

“I had new hope,” she shared. “I entrusted everything to God.”

A few months later, Derly found out she was pregnant again! She successfully gave birth to a healthy baby girl and named her Shekinah, because she is a symbol of God’s presence in their lives.

Do You Need Hope and Healing Today?

“I want to thank The 700 Club Asia for allowing God to use your program in giving me hope,” Derly said. “God healed my heart through your show. Our baby gives us immense joy! She is a huge blessing from God.”

Do You Need Hope and Healing Today?

Like Derly, do you need hope and healing right now?

When circumstances are challenging, you can take comfort that God will hear you as you pray. Find hope that He will rescue you, as you trust Him to restore your heart and your health.

“Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave.” (Psalm 107:19-20 NLT)

Do not hesitate to visit and reach out to The 700 Club Asia Facebook page, or call the CBN Asia Prayer Center at 8-737-0-700 and we would love to pray for you.

Sometimes, a warm meal can change a life. And through your continuous support, we can scale up our assistance of warm, healthy meals to undernourished children. Together, we can change their lives and give them hope that healthier days are ahead of them.

Through Your Help, Healthy Days are Ahead for Filipino Children!

Sometimes, a warm meal can change a life.

The 7-year-old Bernardo Ongcoy can attest to that.

Sometimes, a warm meal can change a life. The 7-year-old Bernardo Ongcoy can attest to that. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the little boy and his father would pick talbos ng kamote (sweet potato tops) from their backyard so they would have something to eat for the day. Life was already hard for Bernardo’s family. His father Romanito makes charcoal for a living, and no matter how much charcoal he makes, his income is not enough to cover their basic needs, let alone buy nutritious meals for his kids. “Sometimes we don’t even eat. Rainy days are the worst, because we wouldn't know where to get food. My wife and I are doing our best to provide for our son, but life is really hard for us,” Romanito said. Bernardo’s family belongs to the Dumagat tribe residing on the mountains of Puray in Rodriguez, Rizal. Their community’s location is far from better-paying job opportunities and other essential services. Because they could not afford healthier or even enough food, Bernardo and his brother Miguel became undernourished. “If my papa stops making charcoal, we would have nothing to eat. I get sickly whenever I am hungry,” Bernardo narrated. His mother Vilma hopes that one day, God will hear all her prayers and bless her beloved children. “I am sad about our condition. I would just pray, ‘God, please provide food for my children so that they won’t experience hunger anymore,’” Vilma lamented. They were already struggling to survive each passing day, and as soon as the pandemic razed the country, it became even harder to know where their next meal is coming from. Thanks to you, Bernardo and his brother can enjoy warm, nutritious meals even during the pandemic! Through your partnership with Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, Bernardo and his fellow Dumagat kids receive support through the ministry’s Bless-a-Child program. Through Bless-a-Child, undernourished children like Bernardo enjoy healthy lunches every day, free medical checkup and medicines on a regular basis, as well as free primary education and values formation support. Their parents are also taught how to prepare nutritious yet budget-friendly meals for their children. “We are so grateful for Operation Blessing’s feeding program! My children are always full, their weight improved, and they are now more active,” his mother Vilma shared. Bernardo is now feeling happy, and full. Happy to know that there are people out there who care for them, and full because of the nutritious meals he enjoys every day! “We used to experience hunger, now we don't. Thank you so much for your help, Operation Blessing!” he said with a smile. Sometimes, a warm meal can change a life.

His mother Vilma hopes that one day, God will hear all her prayers and bless her beloved children.

“I am sad about our condition. I would just pray, ‘God, please provide food for my children so that they won’t experience hunger anymore,’” Vilma lamented.

They were already struggling to survive each passing day, and as soon as the pandemic razed the country, it became even harder to know where their next meal is coming from.

Thanks to you, Bernardo and his brother can enjoy warm, nutritious meals even during the pandemic!

Through your partnership with Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, Bernardo and his fellow Dumagat kids receive support through the ministry’s Bless-a-Child program.

Sometimes, a warm meal can change a life. The 7-year-old Bernardo Ongcoy can attest to that. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the little boy and his father would pick talbos ng kamote (sweet potato tops) from their backyard so they would have something to eat for the day. Life was already hard for Bernardo’s family. His father Romanito makes charcoal for a living, and no matter how much charcoal he makes, his income is not enough to cover their basic needs, let alone buy nutritious meals for his kids. “Sometimes we don’t even eat. Rainy days are the worst, because we wouldn't know where to get food. My wife and I are doing our best to provide for our son, but life is really hard for us,” Romanito said. Bernardo’s family belongs to the Dumagat tribe residing on the mountains of Puray in Rodriguez, Rizal. Their community’s location is far from better-paying job opportunities and other essential services. Because they could not afford healthier or even enough food, Bernardo and his brother Miguel became undernourished. “If my papa stops making charcoal, we would have nothing to eat. I get sickly whenever I am hungry,” Bernardo narrated. His mother Vilma hopes that one day, God will hear all her prayers and bless her beloved children. “I am sad about our condition. I would just pray, ‘God, please provide food for my children so that they won’t experience hunger anymore,’” Vilma lamented.

Do You Trust God amid Scarcity?

Do You Trust God amid Scarcity?

Can you still give generously even in your financial need?

This seems impossible, but Nelia Ansaldo’s story is proof that you can with God’s provision.

Do You Trust God amid Scarcity?

Nelia, a sales agent, and her husband, a mechanic, have done their best to provide for their family. However, even with all their hard work, they still struggled financially.

“It is so tiring to run after money. It is hard to see your family struggle in that situation,” Nelia said. There were even times when they had to borrow money from their neighbors just so their children can have their daily school allowance.

Do You Trust God amid Scarcity?

Are you also in the same situation as Nelia?

Take heart! God is creating a way for you just as He had done for Nelia.

During those difficult times, Nelia watched television programs just to take a break from the stress brought by their financial problems. That’s when she stumbled upon an episode of The 700 Club Asia that changed the course of her life.

Do You Trust God amid Scarcity?

She was touched by the story of generosity shared by someone who was able to donate despite their financial constraints.

“I was inspired when I learned that the donations given to CBN Asia are helping communities in need, through Operation Blessing’s wells projects. You can also help people who are affected by catastrophes,” she shared.

Nelia realized that she could be a vessel of God’s blessings to others. So, she began to trust that God will provide in the middle of their financial problems, and with a cheerful heart, she donated to the ministry.

Do You Trust God amid Scarcity?

Few days after Nelia experienced the joy of giving, God’s provision followed.

Her earnings doubled and she was able to provide for all the needs of her family, including the educational expenses of her children.

“I thank the Lord for His faithfulness!” Nelia happily said. “I witnessed God’s continuous goodness to my family and our lives.”

Do You Trust God amid Scarcity?

Are you also waiting for God’s breakthrough?

Have faith. Help is on the way.

Most of the time, God wants to teach you something first, so that when the breakthrough comes, your heart will be ready, just like what happened Nelia.

And just like Nelia, no financial constraints can hinder you in continuing the mission of paying forward the blessings of God through generous giving.

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38 NIV)

Bless and be blessed.

Are you praying for God’s provision?

We are here to pray with you! The CBN Asia Prayer Center is open 24/7, just call 8-737-0-700 or send your prayer requests to our Facebook page.

Is there Blessing in Giving?

Is there Blessing in Giving?

For pre-school teacher Sharon Pagang, the answer will always be a resounding yes.

Sharon first learned the value of giving from her parents. This lesson stayed with her as she grew up and had a family of her own.

Is there Blessing in Giving?

One evening, Sharon and her husband Jovenal chanced upon The 700 Club Asia. They saw the many struggling families helped through Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines (OB) and it touched their hearts. Without any hesitation, the couple heeded the call to help through giving.

Is there Blessing in Giving?

“My husband and I were encouraged by the stories of people who were touched by God’s faithfulness. That night, we decided to give to Operation Blessing,” Sharon recalled.

Like Sharon, do you long to give whenever you hear and witness the struggles of others?

It is easy to be a blessing to others when life is all good and easy, but what about when it’s hard? Barely a month after Sharon decided to bless others, she found out that she had kidney stones.

Worried and anxious about the possibility of a medical operation, she doubted if she was physically and financially ready for this challenge.

In the midst of her uncertainty, Sharon was reminded that God is her great healer. She decided to remain prayerful, faithful and committed to her calling.

“I told my husband that in spite of what we are going through, we will continue to help God’s ministry,” Sharon said.

Little did she know, she was up for a miracle.

Just weeks after she prayed, the kidney stones were flushed out of her body! It meant two things: she no longer needed a medical operation and she just received God’s miraculous healing.

Is there Blessing in Giving?

Sharon exclaimed, “Yes, Lord! We are forever grateful to You for Your healing touch.”

Exceedingly grateful for God’s faithfulness, Sharon’s generosity increased. She and her husband happily gave more than what they initially pledged to Operation Blessing.

Truly, God is the source of provision, healing, and life.

No one can ever outgive God, and Sharon’s story is wonderful proof of this fact. Blessings followed after Sharon and her husband blessed others with their giving. Business opportunities opened for their family; her husband was promoted to a managerial role.

And that’s not all. “We have been praying for a baby and because God is so faithful, He gave us one!” Sharon shared. “We are so happy and thankful, and we will never forget the outpour of blessings we received from Him.”

Is there Blessing in Giving?

Even in a pandemic, God’s divine sustenance never fails to amaze the couple. Sharon and Jovenal found God’s peace during these trying times – the ultimate blessing they receive whenever they give.

And if like them, you want to experience the blessing that comes from giving, the couple has a message for you:

“This pandemic is the time where we can show our gratitude to God. One way of showing how thankful we are is to give. Learn to share. Do not worry for tomorrow for we cannot fathom His plans for us.”

Is there Blessing in Giving?

Are you blessed by this story?

Do you also want to experience the blessing in giving, but you do not know where to start?

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

If so, then you are at the right place.

Merrie Sarmiento has found the solution to all her problems, and she will share it with you today.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

Growing up, Merrie never experienced having a complete and happy family. In hopes of having one, she married young and decided to build a family of her own at the age of 19.

It seemed like a dream come true, right?

Absolutely. Until the reality of life started to unfold right before her eyes.

“I was full of fears that time – fears about my childhood experience and fears about my life now that I have my own family. My husband and I were not ready,” Merrie confessed.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

Thankfully, her scared and confused mind found solace when she chanced upon The 700 Club Asia.

In one of its episodes, the hosts prayed for someone who is struggling and has so many questions about life. She did not hesitate to join in that prayer.

“I felt relieved while praying with them. I said ‘Lord, now I see You’re with me all along.’ While watching The 700 Club Asia, I saw how God helped and loved many people,” Merrie narrated.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

She surrendered all her fears, even confessed her sins and anger, and said, “That’s when I felt peace in my heart.”

Soon after, Merrie and her husband joined a Bible Study – a huge step of faith that allowed them to grow in their newfound relationship with God. All is well and sailing smoothly.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

However, things went south when her husband flew to Taiwan. Their smooth-sailing marriage hit a huge boulder. Calls became less frequent. Their relationship went cold.

Merrie’s suspicions grew, and it came to a crushing end when she saw a picture of her husband with another woman. Miles away from the man she loves, she did not know what to do.

Like Merrie, are you also dealing with a problem that is beyond your control?

How do you cope?

Sinking slowly into despair, she texted the CBN Asia Prayer Center.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

“The Prayer Center encouraged me amid all my troubles. Their prayers were a huge help for me,” Merrie said.

Little did she know, she will discover that the solution to all her problems is only a prayer away.

God started to transform her husband’s heart. And as Merrie experienced the saving love of Jesus, she also learned how to forgive her spouse.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

“God answered my prayers. He found a church in Taiwan where God changed him. Our communication was restored. Our marriage was transformed, as well as his relationship with our children. God’s love is so great. It’s good to forgive because God forgave us first,” Merrie ended.

Having experienced the saving, comforting, and transforming love of God, Merrie is confident that He is the solution to all her troubles.

“God is the solution to all my problems!” she ended.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

Are you experiencing pain, troubles, or discouragement?

Know that God is only a prayer away. He may not magically solve all your problems instantly, but He will give you the strength to continue even in the midst of adversity.

Call upon the name of Jesus – the only name that brings miracles and wonders.

“Whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” (John 14:13-14 NKJV)

Do You Trust that God Will Provide for Your Family

Do You Trust that God Will Provide for Your Family?

Arlene Valera does.

She believes that God will always take care of their needs even when she lost her source of income during the pandemic.

Do You Trust that God Will Provide for Your Family?

Have you also lost your job during the pandemic? Let her story inspire you that God can and will provide for you and your loved ones.

The new year sounded like a fresh beginning for Arlene. All her plans were set, and she was determined to go back to work as a cruise ship waitress. It was not easy to be a single parent, but that job became her bread and butter, and helped her support the growing needs of her son.

Do You Trust that God Will Provide for Your Family?

However, the unexpected happened. The COVID-19 pandemic toppled all the plans she built.

“At first, I was terrified. My son was about to enroll in school. If only I knew that there will be a pandemic, I would have returned to work early in January,” Arlene recalled.

All she could do was wait – wait for the pandemic to end so she can return to her job, wait for an opportunity to earn because they have exhausted all her hard-earned savings, and wait for God’s provision.

The waiting lasted for weeks, months, and now, for a year.

Do You Trust that God Will Provide for Your Family?

Are you waiting for God’s provision, too?

If you are, then hold fast to your hope.

That is what Arlene did. She faced her financial struggles with prayers and watched The 700 Club Asia as her source of encouragement. Meanwhile, the CBN Asia Prayer Center became her prayer companion.

The 700 Club Asia inspired me to read my Bible. The stories also inspired me to give a small amount to help those in need,” she narrated.

Do You Trust that God Will Provide for Your Family?

Arlene did not wait in vain. Backing up her prayers with perseverance, she taught herself how to bake and ventured into a small business which she called Awlyn Sweets Delights and Delicacies.

Despite the small income, the single mother was grateful that God sustains them every day. She also sets aside a part of her earnings so she can donate to CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm.

Do You Trust that God Will Provide for Your Family?

“I save up so I can give 500 pesos every month to Operation Blessing,” Arlene shared. “Through God’s grace, each time I give, my customers will message me to order cakes. Praise God!”

God’s provision did not waver. Arlene was in awe when she won a mall raffle worth Php 20,000, allowing her to pay her son’s tuition fees in full.

She exclaimed, “It was my first time to win in any raffle. The 500 pesos I gave turned into 20,000! I am so happy despite all the challenges. I am thankful because God did not forsake me.”

Do You Trust that God Will Provide for Your Family?

God will provide.

You may have heard and said that phrase a million times, but the question is: do you really trust that God will provide for your family?

God promised that He is your shepherd – the kind of shepherd that feeds, leads, and meets all your needs. So when God said that He is your shepherd, you can rest assured that He will always be.

When God said that He will provide for your family, you can trust that He will truly provide for all your needs.

“The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need.” (Psalm 23:1 NLT)

Are you anxious about providing for your family during this pandemic?
