Reporter: A FREAK

ACCIDENT CHANGED DENISE

BURROWS' LIFE FOREVER.

WHEN SHE SIMPLY WALKED

THROUGH A REVOLVING DOOR.

THE DOOR SMASHED ON MY

LEFT SHOULDER, AND I WAS

WEARING A RAINCOAT.

IT GOT HOOKED, PULLED ME

DOWN THIS WAY WITH MY ARM

STUCK IN THE DOOR.

Reporter: SHE

EVENTUALLY HAD SURGERY TO

REPAIR A ROTATOR CUFF AND

DETACHED CLAVICLE.

SHE WAS UNABLE TO WORK AS A

NURSE AND LIVING ON A SMALL

DISABILITY CHECK.

SHE GOT BEHIND ON HER

BILLS.

THEY WANT THE MONEY.

YOU'RE NOT PAYING.

YOU TRY TO MAKE PAYMENTS

WITH THEM, I CAN PAY THIS

MUCH, VERY MINIMAL, AND

THEY'RE, LIKE, OKAY, BUT

THEY WON'T STOP CALLING.

EVERYTHING WAS TAKEN, JOB,

FINANCES, HOUSE, MY JOY.

Reporter: DENISE WAS

SOON MORE THAN $7,000 IN

DEBT, AND THAT WAS SIMPLY

FOR NECESSITIES LIKE RENT,

FOOD, AND GAS.

SHE GAVE TO HER CHURCH WHEN

SHE HAD SOME EXTRA MONEY.

WHILE SHE WAS HOME

RECUPERATING, DENISE WATCHED

"THE 700 CLUB."

THAT'S WHEN SHE LEARNED HOW

IMPORTANT IT IS TO GIVE.

AND GORDON BROUGHT UP

MALACHI 310, AND IT'S,

"BRING ALL OF YOUR TITHES

INTO THE STOREHOUSE, ONE

TENTH, AND GOD WILL OPEN THE

HEAVENS FOR YOU."

AND I WAS THINKING, IS THAT

TRUE.

AND SO I WENT AND LOOKED IT

UP IN THE BIBLE, AND IT

WAS.

Reporter: SO DENISE

STARTED TO TITHE FROM HER

DISABILITY CHECK AND HER

FINANCIAL SITUATION

CHANGED.

WITHIN A FEW MONTHS, HER

SHOULDER WAS WELL, AND SHE

GOT A GREAT JOB AS A NURSE.

THAT'S WHEN SHE STARTED TO

PARTNER WITH CBN.

THAT'S WHEN EVERYTHING

FELL INTO PLACE.

THE JOB COMING -- BEING ABLE

TO PAY BILLS BACK.

Reporter: THIS PAST

APRIL, DENISE GOT A

PROMOTION, WHICH PROVIDED

HER WITH ANOTHER PAY

INCREASE AND A NICE BONUS.

SHE HAS PAID OFF ALL OF HER

CREDIT CARD DEBTS.

GOD IS VERY FAITHFUL.

WHEN YOU GIVE, GOD

DEFINITELY, 100%, GIVES YOU

ABOVE AND BEYOND.

I'VE ALSO HEARD THAT YOU

CANNOT OUTGIVE GOD, AND I'M

LIVING PROOF IT'S TRUE.
