Your generosity transforms lives forever

The world we live in is characterized by diversity and inequality, by circumstances and challenges that often go beyond mere understanding. Yet amid this complexity, humanitarian projects can transform lives, strengthen communities, and bring hope to the darkest situations. The generosity of people like you, provides the foundation for these blessings to reach people here in Germany and around the world.

Indonesien

Tise

One example of this is the house-building projects supported by CBN. People who are in need because of natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis or storms are helped to make a fresh start. This was also the case for Tise, from Indonesia. Her simple little house was destroyed in a severe storm. “It was very windy that day. I looked up and heard it crashing into the wooden beams that held the roof. When the wind got even stronger, the house collapsed. “

Tise vor Trümmern

Tise was literally facing the ruins of her life. She works hard because she not only takes care of her disabled husband and two children, but she also takes care of two other children. Tise cleans in several households, earning about $10 a week. That wasn’t enough to rebuild her home. CBN’s ministry, Operation Blessing, learned of the family’s situation through Tise’s daughter, Angel. Angel who was attending an after-school educational programs offered by CBN, was offered immediate help. “When Operation Blessing said they would take care of my house, it was like a dream come true. Now my kids don’t have to worry about rain and storms. I was so thankful to God!” The team arrived and got to work. First, they had to remove the remains of the old house before they could build a new sturdy home. Soon the family was able to move in and get back to their lives. Tisa´s family are now looking forward to a brighter future.

Tise is overjoyed, “I want to thank all the people who support Operation Blessing for getting my house back up. Thank you, God bless you!“

Die Familie in ihrem neuen Zuhause

Hamburg

Not only far away, but here in Germany, people’s lives are changed through your support: An impressive example of this beneficial work is the ´Courage Builder Project´ of the Christian children’s and youth organization, Arche Jenfeld. A program implemented in cooperation with CBN Germany. ´Arche Jenfeld´ was founded in 2006 after a seven-year-old girl starved to death in the Jenfeld area of Hamburg. Children and young people who are growing up in a socially disadvantaged environment receive assistance there. Almost half of all households in Jenfeld, receive social benefits and about 70% of them have an immigrant background. Since its inception, Arche Jenfeld has developed educational and tutoring programs. In addition to free food, food distribution and clothing donations, children are supported in their daily lives. Thanks to this partnership, 30 young people from the Courage Project were able to celebrate their graduation from school this year.

Anna

Above all, Anna*, a student from Eritrea, embodies the spirit of this change. She had previously been told by a teacher that she would probably not be admitted to the final exam. At the beginning, she was insecure. At the Courage Builder Project she not only received tutoring, but was also able to participate in learning camps, which were primarily intended to prepare students for their final exams. The staff accompanied and supported her for two years.

“When my teacher said I might not get the chance, I wanted to cry. But then I remembered that there is still God and God has good plans for me. If He wants me to get my graduation certificate, then no teacher can stop me! And I have the `Arche`! Do you know that this house is like a fortress for us teenagers? You protect us and stand up for us. I know you are on my side!” A few days later, she received word that she could take the exam because the teachers could see how hard she worked for it. “It was only GOD!” she testified. Anna not only managed to graduate, she could also feel God’s work in her life.

These are just two of many examples where people’s lives are being changed for good. Your compassion through your prayers and financial support brings about change in people’s lives. Every donation, large or small, helps improve people’s lives and spread blessings. CBN Germany would like to thank you for your generosity, which has a positive impact not only here at home, but also in faraway countries. Through your commitment, you are sowing seeds whose fruit has eternal value, which will not return empty: “The rain and snow come down from heaven and do not return there without giving water to the earth. This makes plants grow on the earth and gives seeds to the planter and bread to the eater. So, My Word which goes from My mouth will not return to Me empty. It will do what I want it to do and will carry out My plan well.” (Isaiah 55:10-11)

Thank you so much for your support. You make a difference!
