Have you ever found yourself giving selflessly, even when facing personal struggles?
Meet Elen Cutamora, a dedicated grade school teacher of 16 years. When the pandemic forced classes online, she found herself without essential tools like a laptop and printer, making her job increasingly difficult.
“I had to rely on fellow teachers to help me with lesson plans since I did not have a laptop,” she recalled.
This added stress to Elen’s already challenging situation. Without a laptop, she had to frequent noisy computer shops, spend on transportation, and struggle to concentrate on her work.
Yet, her challenges extended beyond her profession. Having lost her husband, she is now the sole provider for her two children.
Financially strained and unable to afford the equipment needed for her job, Elen’s situation seemed hopeless.
Are you facing similar financial hardships?
Don’t give up! God is at work in your life.
Elen found solace in watching The 700 Club Asia. One day, she came across the story of a student grappling with school tasks due to a lack of a laptop. Empathizing deeply, Elen decided to give generously, despite her own limited means.
“Every time I give, The 700 Club Asia sends me audio teachings that uplift and encourage me,” she shared.
Three months after her donation, Elen received unexpected news: her aunt abroad gifted her a laptop, and soon after, she was able to purchase a printer.
“Truly, God understands our needs,” she reflected.
The new laptop not only eased Elen’s workload but also benefited her children, helping them in their school projects.
In gratitude for this blessing, Elen extended her generosity by offering free printing services to her family and neighbors.
“The 700 Club Asia awakened a spirit of giving within me. God’s blessings are always abundant,” she shared.
Elen’s story inspires us that we can practice generosity even in times of need. Her story also reminds us that God knows our needs and is willing to provide for us!
In God’s Word it says, “The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11:25)
