Euna could not believe her eyes. The gift theGFA-supported pastorheld in his hands would change her life for the better. With tears of joy, she happily accepted the piglet, carefully taking it from Pastor Rasik.
An Answered Prayer
For Euna, this piglet provided the extra income she needed to help her and her son survive. When Euna’s husband passed away from stomach cancer, she found herself thrust into the same situation many widows face. She became the family’s breadwinner and struggled to make enough.
Euna took up work as a daily laborer. She worked menial and rough jobs, such as construction labor, gathering sand and grinding pebbles for building materials. Euna strove to send her son to school. Despite the toil, despite the burden, Euna perservered.
Praying Without Ceasing
Day after day, Euna worked and worked. As Euna’s situation became more and more precarious, her prayers became more and more fervent. Many tears were shed out of frustration and desperation. The one thing Euna prayed for most earnestly was a piglet.
A piglet would lift Euna’s burden by providing additional income for her and her son. Future litters could be sold, and adult pigs could be either sold or used for meat. The change even just one piglet provides for families in need is powerful, and it was exactly what Euna and her son needed.
