Gordon Robertson shares about the work CBN is doing village by village to bring clean, safe drinking water to the Philippines.
According to UN research, almost eight million people lack access to clean water sources. CBN is working village by village in the Philippines to bring that number down – and share the gospel. CBN recently held a well dedication in Cabinitan village where the community suffered an outbreak of cholera last year caused by contaminated water. Now they are grateful for a new well with clean water. 20 people in this village professed faith in Jesus as a result of the outreach.
So far this year, CBN has built 20 wells on the Philippine islands to provide water for over 3700 people. Over the last 12 years, more than 165 thousand people in the Philippines have been helped through CBN’s well program.

Gordon Robertson takes us to Guatemala to meet Glendy and her three daughters who are struggling to recover from an earthquake that killed the family’s husband and father.
SAN MARCOS, Guatemala – Glendy’s husband made her a promise—one that unfortunately he was not able to keep.
He promised to buy her a corn mill so she would be able to earn an income preparing tortillas at home while taking care of their three little girls.
But a few days later an earthquake struck their region of Guatemala—Glendy’s husband was killed and their home reduced to rubble.
As her girls cried and shivered in the cold of a temporary shelter, Glendy could only pray for a miracle.
In the days following the earthquake, Operation Blessing teams learned about Glendy’s situation and helped rebuild her damaged home.
To help get her back on her feet and provide for her three little ones, OBI fulfilled the promise her husband had made before his death by giving her a corn mill. Now, Glendy is able to work from home and earn enough income to take care of her children and even send them to school.
