Marilyn Teodoro, a 50-year-old businesswoman, embodies the spirit of giving. A long-time Operation Blessing (OB) donor, her journey took a powerful turn when she finally joined the mission as a volunteer. Here’s what she has to say:

“OB’s medical missions is different from others I’ve experienced. I am in awe and with tears being part of this. God rebuked a lot in me.

“From the start of the travel, I noticed that the volunteer doctors we are with are seasoned professionals yet they were patient and not even a bit pompous!

“It’s my first time joining here yet it felt like we are all brothers and sisters. I felt very welcome.

“It is holistic. We started each day with devotion, not like the other mission groups I joined where we go straight to the mission work. Here, we did not just bring medicine and healthcare to the people. We brought the Lord into the lives of the people.”

She proceeds to share how she started donating:

“One time, I was lost in life and losing in business. I had a multimillion debt. All I had in my pocket was Php 500. I was praying and crying out to God for help. Then, I saw a remittance center along the way and decided to donate to CBN Asia. And in just about 30 minutes later, I received a call from my friend that she is willing to lend me a huge sum of money to help my business. God is so good!”

From then on, as a way of expressing thanks to God’s faithfulness in her life, she continues to support Operation Blessing.

Now, standing side-by-side with her fellow volunteers, Marilyn’s heart overflows with gratitude. “Finally, I’m not just a witness to OB’s incredible work,” she beams, “I’m actively contributing, making a difference in lives.”

Marilyn’s journey is an inspiration to us all. It reminds us that giving, in any form, can create a ripple effect of hope and transformation. By opening our hearts and offering a helping hand, we can not only support those in need but also experience the joy of service.
