When Others Count You Out, Count on God to Help You!

Imagine the pressure of being the last hope of your family toward reaching a better life.

For Angelica Baculinao, that pressure was a heavy toll to bear.

Growing up in an impoverished life, Angelica often heard discouragements from people around her about their situation. They would often tell her that no one in their family would be able to finish school because they are poor.

“It was so difficult to live a life like this. We can’t buy things we like, and we always worry if we will survive the day,” Angelica shared.

Her ultimate dream is to finish her studies but even that seemed impossible to accomplish.


Having to live off Php 150 daily by selling fish paste, Angelica’s father found it hard to make ends meet and provide for her needs in school. For him, they were fortunate enough they have food on their table for a day.

Have you ever experienced this kind of desperate need?

How did you manage to keep hope alive?

For Angelica, she held on to her dreams and placed her faith in the Lord, believing that He is able to sustain them as a family.

“I am still thankful to the Lord because He taught me so much as I faced challenges in my life. My faith continues to grow, and I consistently trust in His will and plans,” Angelica shared.

God did not disappoint Angelica.

He opened the door for Operation Blessing, the humanitarian arm of CBN Asia, to visit Angelica’s hometown in Capiz. She became part of Operation Blessing’s Back-to-School Program which aims to help students with their educational needs.

Operation Blessing committed to paying all her tuition fees and provided a means for her to fulfill her dream of finishing college. The ministry also provides for Angelica’s allowance and rent for her boarding house.

“I am so happy that I now have an allowance to sustain my daily needs. I am also thankful for Operation Blessing for helping me continue my dream,” Angelica shared, thankful that it is now possible for her to help her family in the future.

Angelica also became a blessing to their church. She became an inspiration for the youth that despite their challenging situation, God can provide favor and release blessings to His children who are in need. She did not allow her situation to stop her, but rather, she persevered by being steadfast in her faith in God.

She is a great example of God’s faithfulness to those who choose to trust in Him!

Are you facing a challenging situation today?

You can count on God to help you. He was able to save Angelica from her dire situation—pray and believe that He can do the same for you.

Jesus replied, “Why do you say ‘if you can’? Anything is possible for someone who has faith!” (Mark 9:23 CEV)

Through your generous giving, Operation Blessing can help more students and give them hope and a future to look forward to!
