Giving tells a story. And it’s one meaningful and inspiring story that our donor, Myla, shared with Operation Blessing.
Myla and her family have been CBN partners for more than 20 years. “It’s a wonderful ministry! We love giving to The 700 Club Asia telethons, encouraging people to call the Prayer Center, supporting missionaries from the Asian Center for Missions, and volunteering at Superbook and Operation Blessing outreach activities,” Myla said.
Two weeks ago, one of her sisters told her that the staff at her convenience store had mistakenly ordered too many loaves of bread from the commissary. “We decided to give the unsold bread away before they spoiled. When my teenage nephews found out about it, they also contributed their full month’s allowance to purchase some of the bread,” Myla shared.
Myla contacted Operation Blessing and promised to deliver the loaves of bread to OB office in Makati. However, prior to the day of the relief distribution in Rizal, Myla explained that her sister didn’t have enough bread loaves for the Taytay relief distribution.
“My sister was about to go to the grocery store to buy bread when a delivery truck arrived at her store with 200 loaves! 150 fresh loaves bypassed her shelves and went straight from the crates into the boxes for OB, which we delivered to their office on Monday afternoon,” Myla said.
Aside from this, Myla also committed to donating more bread loaves to the blind community in Baras, Rizal and Sitio Kaysakat in Antipolo. However, the bread supply from their convenience store had not been replenished, so her sister went to the grocery store to buy 90 loaves of bread for the relief distribution.
Turns out, the grocery store shelves were not fully stocked. Good thing is, while Myla’s sister was trying to gather the loaves of different kinds and sizes, a fresh batch of bread was delivered to the grocery store.
“The bread again,” Myla added, “bypassed the store shelves and went straight from the crates to the boxes for OB!” The bread loaves were then delivered by OB to the visually impaired individuals and needy families in Rizal.
“Jesus is the Bread of Life,” Myla concluded. She was grateful for being able to extend help to our struggling kababayans during this time of pandemic.
“By the grace of God, my family and friends were able to help 240 families because we came together and partnered with this compassionate ministry. What a joy and a privilege it is to be a channel of blessing!”
