When Dinga's husband died, his family made it clear that she and their daughters were no longer welcome in his home. Fearing for their safety, she left.

Dinga explained, “I was very angry and hurt by what happened, but as a believer, I know that I should do to them what I want to be done to me, so I forgave them.”

With nowhere else to go, they moved into a one room hut on her parent's land.

Dinga said, “During winters, it was very cold, and water leaked through the roof. When cooking, smoke filled the house. I couldn't leave the fire unattended, because the house could easily catch fire.”

The smoke affected her lungs, and made it difficult to do any physical work, like trekking long distances to find water or food.  At times, the pain made her too weak to even get up.

“I gave my daughters most of my food to keep them from going hungry,” said Dinga. “My eldest saw what I was doing and told me not to give them all the food, because I also needed to eat. I prayed and asked God to provide for us.”

When Operation Blessing dug a well near their home, we learned about Dinga, and saw that her house was about to collapse. So, we built her a brand-new brick home on her parent's property and gave her and her children new beds and other necessities.

Dinga said, “God's timing is perfect. This is the best house I have ever lived in. No matter what the weather, we have shelter. I love to clean my house, especially the walls and windows, because I couldn't do that before. With water nearby, it's easy to keep everything clean.”

We also gave her a cow, so she could sell the milk.

Dinga said, “I now provide my children with everything they need. To everyone who helped me, ‘May God bless you abundantly, and may you never lack anything.’”
