Air Force Family Flies by Faith

Dory Nissen - 700 Club Producer

U.S Airman Amber enjoys her job at Air Force Base in central California. As a single mom, raising two daughters on an E-4 salary isn’t easy. 

“I did the best that I could with what I had. I did a lot of hoping and trusting God that things would be provided,” Amber said.

Amber’s finances got even tighter when she took in her two sisters when the pandemic hit. Their mom had cancer and was considered high risk for infection.  

Amber says, “The stress of having my two sisters going out places as things started to open up, she couldn't risk having them to come back and give her Covid.”    

Their parents helped financially, but budgeting for two extra teens in the house was more than Amber anticipated.

“There was a lot more than I had thought there would be with them coming, more than just mouths to feed," Amber explained. "There was a whole bunch of other things that needed to be provided to them that I had to pay out of pocket; which was a little bit stressful at the time, just because I'm not that high ranking, so I’m not making a whole bunch."

Another major change in Amber’s life was meeting Jon and soon they married. Their finances took a hit when Amber moved off-base and the couple moved into a home that would accommodate the family of six. First and last month’s rent, plus security deposit exceeded what they had. 

“Plain and simple, we didn't have it," Jon said. "So, it was definitely a burden and it was something that was definitely heavily on our minds.”

Jon and Amber took out a loan to pay for the moving expenses. They relied on their faith that they could pay it off quickly.

“God definitely played a part, and our faith did play a part, you know, prayer and faith and the peace and comfort that God gives us as we go through struggles in our lives; which this was a big one,” Jon explained.

That’s when their Pastor with Cross Point Church asked Helping the Home Front to get involved. Pastor Jon Stone surprised the couple on a Zoom call with good news.

“So, Jon and Amber, how are some of my favorite people doing?" Pastor Jon asked. "Crosspoint and CBN have worked together and we are going to reimburse you $3,000 to offset the expenses that you incurred."

“Amazing. We didn't expect anything,” Amber said.

“How does that hit you, Jon? What would you say to that?” Pastor Jon continued.

“Still trying to process it. Wow. Unbelievable. That is a huge blessing," Jon said.

“And that's not all. Jon and Amber, we want to pay off the $7,000 loan so that you can start off your married life without having to be in debt," Pastor said.

“Wow, is this a dream?" Amber asked.

"There is a God in heaven who cares for our needs," Pastor answered.

“God is so good,” Amber said.

“That’s amazing. I don’t even know what to say. Nothing like this has ever happened to me,” Jon said.

“No words can express how grateful we are,” Amber added.

Thanks to CBN Partners, Jon and Amber have a fresh financial start.

“You guys have no idea what the Church and CBN Helping the Home Front has done for us,” Jon concluded.
