Reporter: THE SMALL

TOWN OF CANNON, GEORGIA, WAS

HIT HARD BY THE RECESSION.

JOBS WERE DIFFICULT TO

FIND.

MARSHA BRADLEY AND HER

HUSBAND, EDDIE, WERE BOTH

OUT OF WORK.

WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN A

DEPRESSING TIME, THEY WERE

ENCOURAGED BY WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB" EVERY MORE.

WE WATCHED HOW GOD WAS

BLESSING NOT ONLY IN THE

MINISTRY, BUT HE WAS

BLESSING OTHER PEOPLE, BY

PEOPLE GIVING TO THOSE WHO

DON'T HAVE ANYTHING.

IT WAS DURING THE

TELETHON, AND IT IS LIKE OUR

SPIRITS CONNECTED.

SHE SAID, WHAT DO YOU WANT

ME TO DO?

AND I SAID CALL THEM.

GIVE.

WE NEED TO GIVE.

I DON'T KNOW HOW WE CAN DO

IT, I DON'T KNOW HOW WE CAN

MANAGE IT, BUT WE'VE GOT

TO.

Reporter: EDDIE AND

MARSHA DIDN'T HAVE MUCH

MONEY, BUT THEY GAVE WHAT

THEY COULD, $5.

SOON AFTER, MARSHA APPLIED

FOR A TEMPORARY JOB AT AN

EGG FARM, AND TO HER

SURPRISE, SHE WAS HIRED.

I KNOW GOD OPENED THAT

DOOR FOR ME.

EVERY DAY I WOULD GO IN, I

WOULD THANK GOD FOR THAT

JOB.

GIVING BACK TO HIM, HE GIVES

BACK.

Reporter: THEY

INCREASED THEIR PLEDGE TO

THE "700 CLUB" LEVEL, AND

SOON AFTER THAT, MARSHA WAS

GIVEN A PERMANENT POSITION,

AND SOON AFTER THAT, SHE WAS

PROMOTED TO QUALITY

CONTROL.

I KNEW GOD HAD HIS FAVOR

ON ME, AND IT ENCOURAGED ME

TO DO MY PART BECAUSE GOD

HAD ALREADY BEEN DOING HIS

PART.

Reporter: AFTER HER

PROMOTION, THEY INCREASED

THEIR GIVING AGAIN, TO THE

"THE 700 CLUB" GOLD MEMBER,

$40 A MONTH.

WE DON'T HAVE A WHOLE

LOT, THAT I HAVE A NEED OF,

BUT I THANK GOD I'M ABLE TO

HELP SOMEBODY ELSE.

Reporter: EDDIE AND

MARSHA SAY THEY FEEL GOOD

ABOUT BEING PART OF CBN.

WE WATCHED ALL OF THE THE

WORK AND THE OUTREACH THAT

THE "THE 700 CLUB" DOES, AND

IT TOUCHED OUR HEARTS

TREMENDOUSLY.

I LOVE IT.

IT OVERWHELMS MY HEART.

IT REALLY DOES.

IT IS JUST 65 CENTS A DAY.

WE CAN FIND THAT MUCH ON THE

GROUND OR IN OUR COUCH IF WE

DUG DEEP ENOUGH.

GIVE IT A CHANCE.

SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

SEE WHAT IT DOES TO YOUR HEART.
