The last four years had been somewhat of a whirlwind for Mabli. Through the faith-filled ministry of local Gospel for Asia (GFA) pastor Danil, the middle-aged mother of five had experienced the healing of her family from sickness, embraced the love of Christ in her life and seen her husband, Daleton, transformed by that same love. However, poverty—seemingly constant in her life—still had a grip on her family. But that was about to change.
An Open Door to a Better Tomorrow
In the four years Pastor Danil had ministered to Mabli and Daleton, he had borne witness to the destitution afflicting them. The family couldn’t afford to clothe themselves. All their earnings had gone toward keeping the family alive for another day, and debt owed to others loomed over them. Pastor Danil resolved to change that, and eventually the opportunity came.
One day, Mabli and Daleton received an invitation to a gift distribution organized by Pastor Danil. With it came news that they may have not expected: They were to receive a buffalo.
For some time, the buffalo benefitted the family, but then an even greater opportunity presented itself. Mabli and Daleton sold the buffalo and, using the earnings, purchased a cow.
