A 90-Year-Old Widow With Nowhere to Turn

90-year-old Agnes maples was facing hefty fines of up to $2500 a day.  A family member had been storing his belongings and trash at her home for years.  When the neighbors complained, the city took action.

I tried to get him to get it out. It was terrible. All kinds of garbage,” said Agnes.

Because of her age, Agnes has not been able to remove the trash or the other items.  Plus her home had fallen into disrepair.  With holes in the roof and no air conditioning in her bedroom, life was becoming very hard for the elderly widow.   

My roof had gotten bad and there was animals getting in,” says Agnes. I didn’t know what to do. I wasn’t able to do it and I know I couldn’t do it.“

With nowhere to turn Agnes contacted Operation Blessing for to see if they could help.

They’re angels. They came in and cleaned out all the stuff, tore the shed down and tore the trailer down and taken everything out,” says Agnes.

In addition to repairing Agnes’ damaged roof, Operation Blessing got some help from Regent University volunteers and did a few little extras for Agnes.  They put in a pathway to the back yard, built beautiful flower beds, finished the debris removal, and cleaned out Agnes’ shed.

They started working and they sure did do a good job,” says Agnes.  “And they’re all my little angels. And I never will forget them. And I love them.”

At the end of a full day of work, Operation Blessing volunteers had one last surprise for “Mrs. Agnes.”

They asked me what I needed. And I said, ‘I need an air conditioner. Please get me an air conditioner.’ And they surprised me with one,” says Agnes. “God bless them and they’re wonderful. And I love them all. I’ve been blessed and blessed and God has never left me. He’s still with me.”
