Getting New Job Skills and a Whole Lot More

When Becky Oglesby’s husband was incarcerated, she had no idea how she’d pay the bills and run the family business. Becky made the choices that took her from poverty to prosperity. Read Transcript


Reporter: DRUG POSSESSION

CONVICTIONS LANDED BECKY'S

HUSBAND IN TEXAS STATE PRISON.

WITHOUT HIM AROUND, SHE WAS

IN CHARGE OF THE FAMILY'S

FINANCES AND DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

IT WAS DEVASTATING.

WE OWED EVERYBODY.

Reporter: HER HUSBAND,

JIMMY, HAD ALWAYS BEEN A

HARD WORKER AND A SOLID

PROVIDER, UNTIL DRUG

ADDICTION WRECKED HIS LIFE.

BILLS MOUNTED AND CREDITORS

CALLED.

BECKY'S JOB DIDN'T EVEN

COVER THEIR HOUSEHOLD

EXPENSES.

AS SHE WONDERED HOW THEY

WOULD GET BY, BECKY SAYS THE

LORD TOLD HER TO TAKE OVER

HER HUSBAND'S BUSINESS.

THE LORD SAID YOU'VE GOT

TO TAKE OVER THIS BUSINESS.

AND I SAID, LORD, I DON'T

KNOW HOW TO DO THAT.

BUT HE SAID, YOU DON'T, BUT

I DO.

SHE LOVED JIMMY WHEN

NOBODY ELSE COULD LOVE HIM

AND THE SITUATION HE PUT

HIMSELF IN.

Reporter: JIMMY READ

LETTERS HOW HIS WIFE AND

DAUGHTER COVERED THE TRY

STATE AREA.

SHE BOUGHT AND SOLD CRUSHED

CARS, AND SOLD THEM FOR

SCRAP METAL.

OBVIOUSLY, I RAN THIS

BUSINESS ON FAITH.

AND I PRAYED ON EVERY

DECISION BECAUSE I LIVED

FROM DAY TO DAY.

Reporter: AS THE MONEY

CAME IN, SHE TITHED TO HER

LOCAL CHURCH.

AND HE ALSO STARTED GIVING

TO "THE 700 CLUB" AND

CALLING THE PRAYER LINE

OFTEN.

IT WAS JUST NICE TO HEAR,

YOU CAN DO THIS.

LET'S PRAY ABOUT IT.

Reporter: BECKY BUILT

SOLID BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS

AND PAID OFF CREDITORS.

IN TWO YEARS, SHE PAID OFF

MORE THAN $100,000 IN DEBT.

AS GOD BLESSED HER, SHE GAVE

MORE.

ALL THE WHILE, BECKY AND

JIMMY WROTE TO EACH OTHER

CONSTANTLY.

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

I HAD BEGUN TO UNDERSTAND A

PEACE I HAD NEVER KNOWN OR

UNDERSTOOD.

WHEN HE CAME HOME, IT WAS

LIKE A DIFFERENT PERSON CAME

HOME.

IT WAS LIKE I GOT A BRAND

NEW HUSBAND, A BRAND NEW

FATHER TO ALL OF OUR KIDS.

HE WAS A CHANGED MAN, AND HE

WAS THE PICTURE OF

REPENTANCE.

HE IS A NEW MAN NOW, FROM

THE FIRST TIME THAT I MET

HIM.

HAVING PRAYER SUPPORT LIKE

"THE 700 CLUB," IT'S

AWESOME.

Reporter: TODAY THEY'RE

RUNNING A THRIVING BUSINESS

TOGETHER.

GOD HAS LITERALLY PULLED

US OUT OF THE PITS OF HELL

AND DISPAIR INTO A LIFE OF

ABUNDANCE OF OVERFLOW.

OBVIOUSLY, WE'RE SERVING

A LOT BIGGER, MORE

MIRACULOUS GOD THAN I'VE

EVER EXPERIENCED.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE

EVERYBODY TO GIVE TO "THE

700 CLUB" AND SEE WHAT GOD

WILL DO.
