WHEN YOU WONDER WHERE

YOU'RE GOING TO GET THE

MONEY FOR THE NEXT BAG OF

GROCERIES, IT IS REALLY

HARD.

Reporter: DIANA LUND

OWNS A SELLING SHOP IN

JAMESVILLE, WISCONSIN.

A FEW MONTHS AGO, SHE WAS

STRUGGLING.

THE SMALL TOWN'S ECONOMY

RELIED HEAVILY ON THE LOCAL

GENERAL MOTORS' PLANT.

SO WHEN THE PLANT CLOSED,

THE ENTIRE TOWN FELT THE

STING.

INCLUDING DIANA.

ABOUT A THIRD OF MY

COSTUMERS WERE G.M. WORKERS,

GENERAL MOTORS' WORKERS, AND

THEY HAD MOVED AND GOT

TRANSFERRED TO OTHER

PLACES.

AND MY BUSINESS HAD A

DOWNTURN AT THAT TIME.

Reporter: FOR YEARS

PRIOR, DIANA HAD GIVEN A

10th OF HER INCOME TO

MINISTRIES.

INCLUDING CBN.

SHE LEARNED THAT CONCEPT ON

"700 CLUB," WHEN SHE WAS

JUST STARTING OUT.

HI

I HAD A LITTLE TV ON THE

EDGE OF MY TABLE, AND IT

ENCOURAGED ME TO WATCH.

IT ENCOURAGED ME TO HEAR

PEOPLE SAY AS THEY WERE

GIVING, GOD BLESSED THEM

BACK.

I WAS LIKE, I'M GOING TO

JUMP IN AND START GIVING.

Reporter: NOW WITH A

THIRD OF HIR BUSINESS GONE

AND THE SAME AMOUNT OF BILLS

TO PAY, DIANA HAD TO MAKE A

DECISION TO KEEP TITHING.

AND SHE PRAYED THAT GOD

WOULD HELP.

DIANA'S CLIENTELE BEGAN TO

INCREASE FASTER THAN SHE

EVER EXPECTED, MAKING UP FOR

THE CLIENTS SHE LOST.

MY BUSINESS, LIKE

OVERNIGHT, STARTED BOOMING.

I HAD AN INFLUX OF BUSINESS

THAT IS BEYOND MEASURE.

AND THEN I STARTED GIVING

MORE BECAUSE OF IT.

I REALLY SAW GOD WAS SO

FAITHFUL.

I WAS ABLE TO PAY OFF MY

HOUSE.

I HAVE HAD AN INCREASE IN

COSTUMERS.

I WAS ABLE TO GET ANOTHER

CAR.

AND THEN I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE

TO SELL MY OLD CAR.

I WAS ABLE TO GIVE IT AWAY

TO A SINGLE MOM WITH TWO

CHILDREN, WHO HADN'T HAD A

CAR IN, LIKE, FOUR OR FIVE

YEARS.

Reporter: SHE IS

CONVINCED SHE IS ABLE TO

SURVIVE THE ECONOMIC

DOWNTURN BECAUSE OF HERa![j

FAITHFULNESS IN GIVING.

GOD ALWAYS COMES

THROUGH.

HE ALWAYS BLESSES YOU.

THE SCRIPTURES ARE TRUE, HE

WILL POUR IT OUT ON YOU.

IT IS LIKE IT MULTIPLIES IN

YOUR CHECKING ACCOUNT IF YOU

GIVE.
