Agnes Mables didn’t know quite what to do.

The 90-year old Virginia resident was in a tough situation, and she felt alone in it.

For a number of years, a family member had been storing some of his items and belongings in her yard. This meant that sometimes these items scattered her lawn.

Because of this, Agnes’ neighbors complained to the city.

After that, the city gave Agnes a big fine. The fine was up to $2,500 for each day that she didn’t remove the refuse. But she didn’t know how to manage it.

In addition to the trash removal, her house also needed upkeep.

Mables’ house was also falling apart. There were holes in her roof and she needed to install air conditioning in her bedroom.

She was 90 years old widow, so she was completely alone in the clean up process.

But fortunately, Agnes had heard about Operation Blessing.

Operation Blessing is a Christian nonprofit organization that focuses on aiding relief efforts all over the world.

While they do specialize in disaster and hunger relief, clean water initiatives, and medical care, they were also willing to help Agnes in her time of need.

Agnes called Operation Blessing to see if they would be able to help her with her troubles.

A team of volunteers was able to come to her house and offer her a hand.

Operation Blessing, along with a group of volunteers from Regent University, went to Agnes’s house and helped to fix everything. They had an immense project ahead of them.

They managed to tear down her trailer, repair her roof, and cleaned out everything that was causing a problem. But they didn’t stop there.

The volunteer team took it a step further to help brighten Agnes’s day.

After fixing the problem, they set to work with making her home beautiful. They put down a new pathway to the backyard with bricks, built flowerbeds, and fixed up her shed.

The part that made Agnes the happiest though?

When they surprised her with an air conditioner for her room.

In the hot Virginia summer, air conditioning is pretty much a necessity, so it’s a wonder that she managed without it for so long.

Because of this group’s willingness to go a step further with their kindness, Agnes can now sleep comfortably and happily.

Agnes had this to say about her gratitude:

“They’re all my little angels,” She told The Christian Broadcasting Network. “And I’ll never forget ’em, and I love ’em. God bless ’em.”

You never know when you may not be able to help yourself on your own.

A lot of us spend our lives trying to take care of ourselves alone, and we forget that there are people everywhere who are willing to help and want to see us doing our best.

When we do finally ask for help, it can be great to see how far above and beyond people are willing to go.
