Reporter: IN 1988,

JULIE ROTH WAS LAID OFF FROM

HER JOB IN DALLAS WHEN HE

COMPANY FOLDED.

TWO WEEKS LATER, HER

HUSBAND, BOB, CAME HOME WITH

THE SAME NEWS.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY

SAID, WE'RE CLOSING THE

OFFICE DOWN.

TOMORROW WE'RE LEAVING.

THERE I WAS WITHOUT A JOB.

FEAR SETS IN.

I KNEW SOMETHING GOOD

WOULD COME OUT OF IT, BUT AT

THE TIME, I WAS SHOCKED.

YOU WONDER, WHY ME.

AND THEN YOU THINK, WHAT DO

I DO NOW.

SO I TURNED TO THE LORD.

GOD, WHAT DO YOU WANT US TO

DO.

Reporter: THEY SAY GOD

DIRECTED THEM TO GIVE 10% OF

THEIR UNEMPLOYMENT CHECK TO

THE CHURCH.

MOST PEOPLE WOULD SAY,

NO, DON'T DO THAT.

HUNKER DOWN.

BUT INSTEAD, WE DECIDED TO

TITHE AND WE MADE ALL OF OUR

PAYMENTS.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

NEEDED DIRECTION, SO THEY

USED THIS TIME TO DISCOVER

GOD.

HOW CAN I PURSUE MY

GOD-GIVEN TALENTS.

THE WHOLLY SPIRIT WILL GIVE

YOU A REVELATION.

I REALIZED I WAS SUPPOSED TO

BE IN TECHNOLOGY.

Reporter: BOB LANDED A

JOB WITH ANOTHER COMPANY,

AND JULIE LANDED A JOB WITH

A BETTER COMPANY AND MORE

PLAY.

OUR UNEMPLOYMENT TURNED

OUT TO BE A BLESSING.

I LOOKED FOR A SPECIFIC

POSITION, AND THEY CALLED ME

UP AND SAID, HERE IT IS.

I DON'T KNOW HOW I WAS

SELECTED TO GO TO SAN

FRANCISCO TO OPEN A WHOLE

NEW AREA FOR THE

TELECOMMUNICATIONS COMPANY I

WAS IN.

I WAS ONE OF MANY

CANDIDATES.

GOD CAN MOVE HEARTS ON

YOUR BEHALF.

IF YOU'RE REALLY FOLLOWING

GOD, HE CAN PUT FAVOR ON

YOUR LIFE.

WE WERE CONTINUING TO GIVE.

Reporter: OVER 20 YEARS

LATER, BOB STILL WORKS IN

THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY.

WHILE JULIE HAS A SUCCESSFUL

CAREER IN MARKETING AND

SALES.

THE COUPLE STILL TITHES

FAITHFULLY TO THEIR CHURCH,

BUT THEY ALSO GIVE TO

MINISTRIES LIKE CBN.

THEY FIRST BECAME CBN

PARTNERS IN 1983.

JESUS SAID, "GIVE AND IT

WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU," AND I

FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT.

I THINK GIVING IS NOT ONLY

MONETARY, BUT GIVING

INVOLVES YOUR TIME AND ALSO

YOUR TALENT.

GOD'S PRINCIPLES ARE SO

DIFFERENT FROM THE WORLD'S

PRINCIPLES, THAT WHEN YOU

GIVE IT AWAY, HE GIVES IT

BACK.

AND IT IS HIS AIRPLANE.

ANY WAY.

CBN IS THE ONE PLACE THE

LORD TOAME TOLD ME TO GIVE

TO.

WE'VE BEEN A PART OF CBN FOR

OVER 20 YEARS NOW.

CBN ALLOWS US TO BE

SOMETHING BIGGER.

THE FIRST TIME THERE IS A

CATASTROPHE, I WANT TO GET

ON A PLEN AND GO.

I WORK FULL-TIME, AND I

CAN'T GO, BUT I KNOW

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

GOING TO BE THERE.

GOD IS SO MERCIFUL, AND HE

CARES SO MUCH.

HE CARES ABOUT ALL OF US.

WE'RE FAMILY.

AND WHEN WE TAKE CARE OF

EACH OTHER, HE IS GOING TO

TAKE CARE OF US.
