Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

JUST EIGHT YEARS AFTER

CREATING Facebook IN HIS

DORM ROOM, MARK ZUCKERBERG

IS READY TO CASH IN.

INVESTORS ARE SNATCHING

UP SHARES OF STOCK AS

Facebook GOES PUBLIC

TODAY.

THE YOUNG COMPANY IS VALUED

AT MORE THAN $100 BILLION.

DALE HERD HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: IN JUST EIGHT

YEARS, MARK ZUCKERBERG HAS

GONE FROM COLLEGE NERD TO

BILLIONAIRE.

AN ESTIMATED $20 BILLION NET

WORTH AFTER HIS COMPANY'S

STOCK STARTS TRADING

PUBLICLY TODAY AT $38 A

SHARE.

AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE BOUGHT

THE STOCK EXPECT TO BECOME

RICH, TOO.

UNFORTUNATELY FOR MOST OF

THE LITTLE GUYS, WALL STREET

BIG BOYS HAVE ALREADY

SNATCHED UP EVERYTHING IN

THIS INITIAL PUBLIC

OFFERING.

SOME WILL TRY TO SELL THEIR

SHARES AT THIS POINTER, BUT

IF YOU BUY TODAY, YOU MAY BE

PLAYING TWO OR THREE TIMES.

ABSOLUTELY A RISK.

WE WON'T KNOW IF IT WILL BE

WORTH IT.

Reporter: THERE ARE

OTHER CONCERNS ABOUT THE

COMPANY VALUED AT

$100 BILLION.

THIS WEEK, G.M. STOPPED

BUYING.

FROM THE PET.COM CENTER.

Reporter: AND THE

CAUTIONARY TALE, REMEMBER

PETS.COM IN THE '90s.

10 SHARES WENT FOR $1,000.

TODAY THEY'RE WORTH

NOTHING.

OF COURSE, IF YOU BOUGHT 10

SHARES OF APPLE FOR $20 IN

1980, THEY'RE WORTH $200

TODAY.

DALE HERD, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: IT IS CERTAINLY

GOING TO BE AN EXCITING DAY

ON WALL STREET TODAY WITH

THIS I.P.O. .

I AGREE WITH THE ADVICE.

DON'T BUY TODAY.

IF YOU'RE NOT PART OF THE

INITIAL REGISTRATION.

DON'T BE BUYING TODAY.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE

OVERPAYING.

WAIT, BECAUSE THERE WILL BE

A LOCK-UP PERIOD FOR COMPANY

INSIDERS FOR THE NEXT COUPLE

OF MONTHS.

WHEN THAT EXPIRES, EXPECT

THEM TO START SELLING.

YOU MAY BE ABLE TO GET A

GOOD ENTRY POINT.

LEE WEBB HAS THE REST OF OUR

TOP STORIES.

LEE?

Reporter: GORDON, THE

U.S. READY TO ATTACK IRAN,

TO STOP THAT COUNTRY FROM

DEVELOPING NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

THE U.S. ENVOY TO ISRAEL

MADE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT TO

THE ISRAEL BAR ASSOCIATION.

HE SAID THEY DO NOT WISH TO

USE FORCE, BUT THE OPTION IS

NOT ONLY AVAILABLE, HE SAYS,

IT IS READY TO GO.

HE SAYS THE NECESSARY

PLANNING HAS BEEN DONE TO

ENSURE THAT IT IS READY.

WASHINGTON AND ISRAEL HOPE

FOR A DIPLOMATIC SOLUTION,

BUT THEY SAY TIME IS RUNNING

OUT.

CBN HAS PLAYED A KEY ROLE

INPUTING TOGETHER THE

LARGEST CHRISTIAN EVENT IN

THE HISTORY OF INDONESIA.

AND IT'S BEEN TELEVISED

VISIT THE WORLD'S MOST

POPULOUS MUSLIM NATION.

GEORGE THOMAS IS AT THE

WORLD PRAYER ASSEMBLY AND

BRINGS US THE LATEST.

Reporter: THEY BEGAN

PRAYING THE MOMENT THEY

ENTERED THE STADIUM.

I WALKED IN TONIGHT, AND

I ASKED GOD TO MAKE THIS IS

A TURNING POINT AND THE

HISTORY OF OUR NATION.

Reporter: ON THURSDAY,

INDONESIA'S LARGEST SPORTING

AREA BECAME ONE BIG, GIANT

PRAYER HOUSE.

PRAYER CAN CHANGE

EVERYTHING IN THIS NATION,

AND THAT'S WHY I CAME

TONIGHT, BELIEVING GOD TO DO

THE IMPOSSIBLE.

Reporter: AND THEY

WORSHIPPED AND LISTENED TO

SPEAKERS, AND ENCOURAGED

THEM TO WALK CLOSER WITH

GOD.

THE AUDIENCE, PLEASE,

WE'RE DELIGHTED IN YOU.

SO THROUGH THE BLOOD OF

JESUS CHRIST, COME TO GOD.

Reporter: TODAY THIS

BROADCAST IS GOING BEYOND

THE STADIUM.

IN FACT, IT IS BEING SEEN

ALL ACROSS INDONESIA, AS

WELL AS AROUND THE WORLD.

BELIEVERS IN 378 OTHER

INDONESIAN CITIES MET AT THE

SAME TIME IN THEIR HOMES,

CHURCHES, AND IRAN

TELEVISION SCREENS.

MORE THAN 2.5 MILL

CHRISTIANS IN THE COUNTRY IN

INDONESIA, WILL PRAY, CRY

OUT TO GOD, ASKING HIM TO

SEND HIS SPIRIT TO THE

MISSION.

Reporter: CBN INDONESIA

HELPED FACILITATE THE

STADIUM PRAYER RALLY,

JOINING LEADERS FROM VARIOUS

DENOMINATIONS AND GLOBAL

MINISTRIES IN CALLING FOR

GREATER UNITY AMONG

CHURCHES.

BECAUSE THERE IS

TREMENDOUS POWER IN UNITY.

Reporter: IT IS THAT

UNITY THAT ORGANIZERS HERE

SAY WILL BRING A LASTLY

SPIRITUAL CHANGE TO THE

COUNTRY.

GOD GAVE ME A PROPHETIC

WORK THAT AS A RESULT OF

THIS, THERE WOULD BE A NEW

MISSION STATEMENT WOULD

LITERALLY GO TO EVERY TOWN

IN INDONESIA.

Reporter: GORDON, IT

LOOKS LIKE QUITE AN EVENT,

AND THE FACT IT IS GOING ON

IN A MUSLIM NATION IS

REMARKABLE.

Gordon: AND THIS ISN'T

JUST ANY MUSLIM NATION.

THIS IS, BY POPULATION, THE

LARGEST MUSLIM NATION IN THE

WORLD.

IF YOU CAN IMAGINE IN THAT

NATION THERE IS AN

INCREDIBLE PRAYER RALLY

HAPPENING.

I LIKE TO TELL PEOPLE, AND

I'LL TELL YOU, THIS IS ONE

OF THE GREATEST TIMES TO BE

ALIVE IN THE HISTORY OF THE

CHURCH.

ONE OF THE GREATEST -- THE

GREATEST REVIVAL IS

CURRENTLY HAPPENING.

MORE PEOPLE ARE COMING INTO

THE KINGDOM OF GOD EVERY DAY

THAN EVER IN THE HISTORY OF

THE CHURCH.

AND IT'S WONDERFUL TO BE A

PART OF IT.

AND IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF

"THE 700 CLUB," YOU ARE PART

OF THAT BECAUSE YOU'RE GIFTS

WENT INTO CBN INDONESIA,

THAT'S BROADCASTING DAILY

THROUGHOUT THE NATION, AND

YOU'RE A PART OF IT BECAUSE

YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

THE SHOW RIGHT AFTER THIS.

WHEN WE WERE FIRST

MARRIED, WE STRUGGLED TO

MAKE ENDS MEET.

WE LEARNED WHAT THE BIBLE

TEACHES ABOUT TITHING.

EVEN THOUGH IT DIDN'T SEEM

LIKE WE HAD THE MONEY, WE

WENT AHEAD AND TRIED IT.

AS A RESULT OF IT, THE

MONEY WENT FURTHER, AND NOW

WE'RE COMPLETELY DEBT-FREE.

IT'S SO WONDERFUL TO GIVE TO

CBN BECAUSE YOU KNOW THE

MONEY IS BEING USED FOR WHAT

GOD INTENDED.

WE'RE DON AND PHYLLIS AND

WE GIVE TO CBN.

Gordon: WHEN CYNTHIA

LOST HER JOB, SHE STAYED

UNEMPLOYED FOR SEVEN

MONTHS.

BUT IN ALL OF THAT TIME, SHE

NEVER MISSED A CAR PAYMENT

OR A MORTGAGE PAYMENT.

HERE IS HOW SHE MADE ENDS

MEET, AND HOW HER PLAN CAN

WORK FOR YOU.

I WASN'T IN CONTROL OF MY

MONEY.

MY MONEY WAS IN CONTROL OF

ME.

BECAUSE I WOULD SEE

SOMETHING, AND I WOULD GO

GET IT.

I WORKED HARD FOR IT, AND

THOSE VOICES TELL YOU YOU

DESERVE IT.

Reporter: THAT'S THE

MINDSET CYNTHIA ADOPTED AS A

YOUNG CAREER WOMAN.

I WOULD CHANGE CARS EVERY

TWO YEARS BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT I THOUGHT WE WERE

SUPPOSED TO DO.

I WENT ON SPENDING SPREES.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

MOST OF HER MONEY WENT TO

PAYING BILLS AND CREDITORS.

I REMEMBER I WOULD HAVE

TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME

WRITING EVERYTHING DOWN,

EVERY MONEY I WAS GOING TO

SPEND.

IF ANYTHING CAME IN $20

OVER, I WAS IN A BIND.

Reporter: SHE STARTED

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I STARTED HEARING

PRINCIPLES THAT WERE VERY

FOREIGN TO ME, GIVE AND IT

SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU.

Reporter: SHE BECAME A

CBN PARTNER.

I REMEMBER WRITING THAT

FIRST CHECK.

I THOUGHT ANGELS WOULD BE

SINGING BECAUSE IT WAS A

HUGE SPHEP FO STEP FOR ME.

Reporter: SHE DIDN'T

HAVE A HANDLE ON SPENDING

AND HER DEBT GREW TO

$30,000.

THAT WASN'T GOOD.

THAT WASN'T THE WAY TO

LIVE.

Reporter: THEN SHE LOST

HER JOB.

CYNTHIA SAID SHE HAD TO

DEPEND SOLELY ON GOD, WHICH

WASN'T VERY EASY.

IT WAS VERY STRESSFUL FOR

ME.

ESPECIALLY ONE TIME I

REMEMBER PACING BACK AND

FORTH.

AND I SAID, GOD, I NEED YOUR

HELP.

I HAD $1.87 IN THE BANK.

Reporter: SHE RECEIVED

A LOAN FOR $6,000 AT A

WHOPPING 27% INTEREST.

CYNTHIA ADMITS SHE WAS

TEMPTED.

I'M THINKING.

DEFENSE ATTORNEY: THAT

THIS IS A QUICK ANSWER FOR

MY PROBLEM.

AND GOD SAID, IT MAYBE A

QUICK ANSWER, BUT IT ISN'T

THE ANSWER.

Reporter: AND EVEN

THOUGH MONEY WAS TIGHT, SHE

BELIEVES GOD TOLD HER TO

KEEP GIVING.

HIS SPECIFIC INSTRUCTION

WAS TO GIVE THE SAME AMOUNT

AS WHEN I HAD A JOB.

DURING SEVEN MONTHS OF

UNEMPLOYMENT, I NEVER MISSED

A CAR PAYMENT, I NEVER

MISSED A HOUSE PAYMENT.

Reporter: CYNTHIA

LANDED A JOB.

AND SHE SAYS GOD SHOWED HER

WAYS TO DOUBLE HER INCOME.

HE TOLD ME TO KEEP

GIVING.

HE TOLD ME TO DOUBLE MY

GIVING.

Reporter: CYNTHIA

INCREASED HER GIVING.

IN TIME SHE PAID OFF ALL OF

HER DEBT AND IS STILL

DEBT-FREE.

SHE IS ALSO A MEMBER OF

CBN'S CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE.

AND SHE SAYS SHE HAS AN

UNDERSTANDING OF GIVING AND

FAITH SHE NEVER HAD HAD

BEFORE.

I CANNOT GO WRONG

GIVING.

HE GAVE IT TO ME, ANYWAY.

WHEN I GIVE IT TO GOD, HE IS

GOING TO DO SO MUCH MORE

WITH IT THAN I COULD

IMAGINE, AND HE BLESSES ME

MORE ALONG THE WAY.

Gordon: THAT IS AN

INCREDIBLE STORY.

AND THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU

BECAUSE GOD IS NOT A

RESPECTOR OF PERSONS.

SO OFTEN WE THINK IN TERMS

OF THIS IS MINE.

BUT WHEN YOU GET THE IDEA

THAT CYNTHIA HAD, THAT IT'S

ALL GOD'S, THAT HE IS THE

ONE THAT HAS GIVEN YOU THE

ABILITY TO MAKE MONEY, TO

GET WELL.

HE'S THE ONE THAT IS

RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU.

AND SO YOU CAN TRUST HIM.

AND WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND ALL

100% IS HIS, THEN YOU'RE ON

YOUR WAY.

HERE IT IS FROM MATTHEW 6,

AND SHE'S AR THESE ARE THE

WORDS OF JESUS: "SO DON'T

WORRY ABOUT HAVING ENOUGH

FOOD OR DRINK OR CLOTHING,"

AND ADD TO THAT YOUR

MORTGAGE PAYMENT, YOUR CAR

PAYMENT.

"YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER

ALREADY KNOWS ALL YOUR

NEEDS, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU

ALL YOU NEED FROM DAY TO DAY

IF" -- AND THIS IS THE

CONDITION -- "IF YOU LIVE

FOR HIM AND MAKE THE KINGDOM

OF GOD FOR PRIMARY

CONCERN."

IF THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS

YOUR PRIMARY CONCERN, AND

YOU SAY IT IS 100% ALL HIS,

THEN YOU GET THE PROMISE

THAT HE TAKES CARE OF YOU.

AND HE MAKES MORTGAGE

PAYMENTS HAPPEN FOR YOU, AND

HE SUSTAINS YOU THROUGH

SEVEN MONTHS OF

UNEMPLOYMENT.

I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE IN

AMERICA ARE SUFFERING THESE

DAYS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

UNEMPLOYED, PARTIALLY

EMPLOYED.

A LOT OF PEOPLE FACING

FORECLOSURE, AND A LOT OF

PEOPLE UNDER WATER ON THEIR

MORTGAGES.

WE NEED TO PUT OUR 100% INTO

GOD, AND WHEN WE DO, HE WILL

TAKE CARE OF US DAY TO DAY.

IN ONE MONTH, MARSHA BRADLEY

WENT FROM BEING UNEMPLOYED

TO WORKING A TEMP JOB, AND

FINALLY TO A FULL-TIME JOB

WITH A PROMOTION.

IT ALL STARTED WITH ONE

PHONE CALL.

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.

Gordon: GIVE IT A

CHANCE, SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

HERE THEY ARE, THEY'RE

UNEMPLOYED, AND THEY SEE THE

NEED, AND THEY SAY, WHAT CAN

WE DO TO START TO HELP

PEOPLE?

AND THEY DID THAT.

THEY DIDN'T SAY, WE DON'T

HAVE ANYTHING, SO WE CAN'T

HELP.

THEY DIDN'T SHUT THEMSELVES

OFF IN TERMS OF WHAT THEY

WERE LOOKING AT, IN TERMS OF

SEEING THE POOR AND HOW THEY

COULD MEET THAT MEET.

ISAIAH 58: "I WANT YOU TO

SHARE YOUR FOOD WITH THE

HUNGRY AND TO WELCOME POOR

WANDERERS INTO YOUR HOMES.

GIVE CLOTHES TO THOSE WHO

NEED THEM.

IF YOU DO THESE THINGS, YOUR

SALVATION WILL COME LIKE THE

DAWN.

THEN WHEN YOU CALL, THE LORD

WILL ANSWER, YES, I AM

HERE.

HE WILL QUICKLY REPLY."

NOW, THAT HAPPENED TO

MARSHA.

HERE SHE IS, SHE SAYS, I'M

GOING TO START GIVING, I'M

GOING TO START HELPING

PEOPLE IN NEED, AND SHE WAS

IN NEED, AND SHE GOT A JOB.

IT STARTED OFF AS A TEMP,

AND THEN IT WENT INTO

FULL-TIME, AND THEN IT WENT

INTO A PROMOTION.

AND THEY LEARNED THE SECRET,

IF YOU GIVE, GOD GIVES BACK

TO YOU, AND HE MAKES SURE

THAT YOU'RE TAKEN CARE OF.

NOW, IF I CAN GET A

DRUMROLL, I'VE GOT SOME

GREAT NEWS.

SOME PARTNERS LIKE MARSHA

BRADLEY SAY, WE LOVE

GIVING.

WE'VE LEARNED THE SECRET.

WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO

OPERATE IN THE SECRET.

AND WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE

OTHERS TO GIVE.

SO FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES,

THEY'RE CHALLENGING YOU

$75,000.

[APPLAUSE AND CHEERS]

Gordon: WHAT A

CHALLENGE IS EXISTENTING CBN

PARTNERS SAY WE'LL MATCH

YOU, DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, UP

TO $75,000, IF YOU GIVE.

IF YOU SAY, OKAY, I'LL TAKE

IT, I'LL TEST GOD IN THIS,

AND I'LL TEST HIM WITH MY

TITHES, MY OFFERINGS, MY

GIFTS, AND SEE IF WHAT

HAPPENED TO THEM WILL HAPPEN

TO ME.

NOW, THIS ISN'T SOME KIND OF

LOTTERY TICKET.

THERE IS A FAITHFULNESS

INVOLVED IN THIS.

THERE IS A CONSISTENCY

INVOLVED IN THIS.

WHEN YOU START THINKING GOD

HAS 100%, AND THEN YOU START

GIVING CHEERFULLY BECAUSE

YOU UNDERSTAND HE IS GOING

TO TAKE CARE OF YOU, THAT'S

WHEN THE BLESSINGS COME.

NOW, WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU

TO DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO GIVE $20

A MONTH, 65 CENTS A DAY.

SOME OF YOU SAY I CAN GIVE

EVEN MORE.

I CAN GIVE "THE 700 CLUB"

GOLD, $40.

A MONTH.

THOUSAND CLUB IS $84 A

MONTH.

2500 CLUB IS $2500.

AND FOUNDER $5,000, AND THE

CHAIRMAN CIRCLE AT $10,000

OR MORE.

NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT.

CALL US, BECAUSE WE'RE IN

THE MIDDLE OF A $75,000

CHALLENGE, AND WE NEED TO GO

WAY OVER THE TOP ON THIS.

WHEN YOU GIVE, A PORTION OF

EVERY GIFT GOES INTO THE

WORK OF CBN INTERNATIONAL TO

PREACH THE GOSPEL IN PLACES

LIKE INDONESIA, INDIA,

THROUGHOUT SOUTHEAST ASIA,

AFRICA, LATIN-AMERICA.

IF YOU WANT TO GET THE

GOSPEL OUT AROUND THE WORLD,

JOIN WITH US.

JOIN IN WHAT WE'RE DOING.

A PORTION OF EVERY GIFT GOES

INTO IT.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

THANKS, GORDON.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE MORE

PIECE IN YOUR LIFE.

PAT ROBERTSON HAS A GREAT

NEW TEACHING THAT SHOWS YOU

HOW TO FIND ALL OF THESE

THINGS AND SO MUCH MORE.

TAKE A LOOK.

MANY YEARS AGO, PAT

ROBERTSON ASKED GOD FOR

THREE LIFETIME PRAYER

REQUESTS.

HE MADE THREE LIFETIME

PRAYER REQUESTS.

AND IN HERE HE SHARES IT

WITH US BECAUSE IT

REVOLUTIONIZED HIS LIFE.

AND HE WANTS YOU TO HAVE

IT.

THE THREE BLESSINGS BY PAT

ROBERTSON, IT'S YOURS WHEN

IF YOU PLEDGE RIGHT NOW,

YOUR DOLLAR WILL BE

MATCHED.

WE NEED TO GO TO THE PHONES

RIGHT NOW, 1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

THIS IS FIRST DAY OF

TELETHON, AND WE NEED TO

HERE FROM YOU GORDON AND

KRISTI.

I DON'T KNOW, IF YOU'RE

LIKE ME, WHEN IT COMES TO

BABIES, DOES YOUR HEART JUST

MELT AND YOU BECOME A SAP.

I DO.

SO DOES THE SHIN FAMILY.

WHEN THEY HEARD ABOUT AN

ABANDONED BABY, THEY WERE

HAPPY TO GIVE HIM A HOME.

BUT THEIR NEW BUNDLE OF JOY

CAME WITH SOME CHALLENGES

THEY DIDN'T EXPECT.

Terry: HAVING ANOTHER

BABY SHOULD HAVE BEEN A

HAPPY TIME FOR MRS. SHIN,

BUT IT WASN'T BECAUSE HER

SON DIED OF JAUNDICE JUST 72

HOURS AFTER HE WAS BORN.

AND AT THE VERY SAME TIME, A

2-MONTH-OLD WAS ABANDONED

BECAUSE OF HIS CLEFT LIP.

WHEN THE SHINS HEARD THIS,

THEY DECIDED TO TAKE HIM IN

AS THEIR FOSTER CHILD.

I FELT SO BAD FOR THE

BABY.

I COULDN'T IMAGINE HIM

GROWING UP WITHOUT PARENTS.

WE DECIDED TO GIVE HIM A

HOME.

Terry: THEY NAMED THE

BABY SHEN GEE, WHICH MEANS

WISDOM.

BUT THEY WORRIED HIS CLEFT

LIP WOULD CAUSE HIM MANY

PROBLEMS.

HE WOULD BE MOCKED

BECAUSE OF HIS CLEFT LIP.

Terry: MR. SHIN ONLY

MAKES $300 A MONTH AS A BUS

DRIVER, SO THEY HAD NO WAY

TO PRA PAY FOR THE

SURGERY.

I PRAYED TO THE LORD TO

PLEASE HELP THIS BABY, TO

MAKE HIS LIPPER FECT.

Terry: NOT LONG AFTER

THIS, MRS. SHIN RECEIVED A

CALL SAYING THAT CBN HEARD

ABOUT HER SON, AND WOULD

PROVIDE CLEFT LIP SURGERY

FOR HIM.

THERE WAS SPLU SOMEONE

WHO REALLY CARED.

I CRIED FOR JOY WHEN I

GOT THE NEWS.

Terry: DOCTORS REPAIRED

THE BABY'S CLEFT LIP AND

GAVE THE BABY A BRAND NEW

LOOK.

THIS SURGERY WAS SO

IMPORTANT.

NOW HE WON'T BE REJECTED.

Terry: TO CELEBRATE,

THE SHINS DECIDED TO DON'T

GEE AS THEIR SON.

YOU HAVE NOT ONLY BLESSED

THE BABY, BUT OUR ENTIRE

FAMILY.

YOU HELPED US TO KNOW GOD,

TRUST HIM MORE, AND TO BE

MORE FAITHFUL.

I APPRECIATE YOU SO MUCH,

CBN.

GOD SENT YOU TO HELP US AS

THE RIGHT TIME.

WHAT A PERFECT GIFT FOR US

AND FOR OUR SON.

LOOK AT THAT LITTLE

PUMPKIN PIE.

DO YOU KNOW THAT ONE OF THE

WAYS GOD ANSWERS OUR PRAYERS

IS THROUGH THE OBEDIENCE AND

FAITHFULNESS OF OTHER

PEOPLE.

THAT FAMILY WAS PRAYING FOR

A MIRACLE FOR THAT BABY, AND

YOU ANSWERED THAT PRAYER

WITH YOUR OBEDIENCE WHEN YOU

BECAME A "700 CLUB"

PARTNER.

HOW PHENOMENAL IS THAT?

LOOK AT THAT LIFE THAT YOU

CHANGED.

LOOK AT THAT PUMPKIN, AND

THAT ENTIRE FAMILY.

YOU PUT THAT SMILE ON THAT

BABY'S FACE.

CAN WE ALL SAY AN AMEN FOR

THAT ONE!

IF YOU'RE NOT A "700 CLUB"

PARTNER, WHAT A PHENOMENAL

OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME ONE

RIGHT NOW.

IT'S JUST 65 CENTS A DAY,

$20 A MONTH, AND IT WILL

CHANGE A PERSON JUST LIKE

THAT LITTLE BABY, OR

MILLIONS OF KIDS ALL AROUND

THE WORLD.

LISTEN, MAYBE YOU SAY, I CAN

GIVE MORE THAN $20 A MONTH.

LET'S ROCK IT.

FOR $40, YOU CAN BECOME A

"700 CLUB" GOLD MEMBER.

$1,000, $84 A MONTH.

AND OVER $400 A MONTH, A

FOUNDER.

AND YOU CAN ALWAYS BECOME IN

THE CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE, WHICH

IS $10,000.

NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU GIVE,

IF IT IS A DOLLAR, $10,000,

A MILLION, IF YOU DO IT IN A

PLACE OF OBEDIENCE, GOD WILL

HONOR YOU AND ROCK YOUR

WORLD.

WE WANT YOU TO CALL

1-800-759-0700.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF --

WHAT IS OUR CHALLENGE?

THANK YOU.

IT'S A $75,000 CHALLENGE.

WE'VE GOT 24 MINUTES LEFT,

Gordon: WHEN A TORNADO

DAMAGED MARIA'S APARTMENT

LAST MONTH, THE APARTMENT

WAS CONDEMNED.

SHE WOULD HAVE LOST

EVERYTHING SHE E OWNED

WITHOUT HELP FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING."

Reporter: MARIA'S

APARTMENT WAS ONLY DAMAGED,

BUT SHE, TOO, WAS IN DANGER

OF LOSING EVERYTHING SHE

OWNED.

YOU HAVE UNTIL

SATURDAY -- YOU HAVE TWO

DAYS TO, LIKE, MOVE OUT.

TWO DAYS!

Reporter: MARIA'S

BUILDING WAS CONDEMNED, AND

SHE WAS GIVEN 48 HOURS TO

MOVE.

MARIA LIVES ALONE AND KNEW

THERE WAS NO WAY SHE WOULD

MOVE HER FURNITURE AND

BELONGINGS BY HERSELF.

I'M NOT KNOWING WHAT I

CAN DO, BUT I'M TRYING TO

STAY POSITIVE BECAUSE I

REMEMBER GOD SAYING, I'M

WITH YOU.

Reporter: HELP WAS ON

THE WAY.

ALL THIS GROUP SHOWED UP,

AND I COULDN'T BELIEVE, WOW,

10, 15 PEOPLE SHOWED UP.

EVERYBODY KNEW WHAT TO DO.

EVERYBODY WAS HELPFUL.

WE HEARD ABOUT MARIA'S

DEADLINE.

AND WE KNEW THERE WAS GOING

TO BE A LOT OF LOGISTICS,

AND SO WE SENT A LOT OF

PEOPLE TO PACK UP HER DISHES

AND ALL OF HER BELONGINGS.

Reporter: AND MARIA

FOUND A PLACE TO LIVE WITH A

FAMILY FRIEND.

AND WITH THE HELP OF

"OPERATION BLESSING," MARIA

COULD SAVE HER BELONGINGS

AND MOVE THEM TO A NEARBY

STORAGE FACILITY UNTIL SHE

HAD A NEW HOME TO LIVE IN.

NO MATTER HOW GOOD THESE

HANDS ARE, THEY ARE ONLY TWO

HANDS.

BUT WHEN YOU HAVE TWO HANDS

AND FOUR HANDS AND SIX

HANDS, BEFORE YOU KNOW IT,

YOU CAN DO LOTS OF THINGS.

Reporter: WORK

CONTINUED THROUGHOUT THE

AFTERNOON AND THE END OF THE

NIGHT.

WITH THE ELECTRICITY OUT

BECAUSE OF THE TORNADO, THE

FINAL PACKING WAS DONE BY

LIGHT BY BATTERY.

WITH "OPERATION BLESSING"'S

HELP, MARIA MET HER DEADLINE

WITH TIME TO SPARE.

TO HAVE YOU ALL HERE,

"OPERATION BLESSING," IT'S

BEEN LIKE A REAFFIRMATION OF

GOD SAYING, I'M WITH YOU.

Gordon: WE WANT TO LET

PEOPLE KNOW THAT GOD IS WITH

THEM.

LOVES THEM IN VERY TANGIBLE

WAYS.

JODY FRY WAS WORKING TWO

JOBS AND STILL STRUGGLING TO

PAY THE BILLS.

UNTIL HE FOUND A WAY TO

BOOST HIS INCOME BY 70% AND

CUT HIS WORK HOURS IN HALF.

Reporter: WHEN JODY FRY

LOST HIS JOB, HE THOUGHT IT

WOULD BE EASY TO FIND

ANOTHER.

HE WAS WRONG.

HE REMAINED UNEMPLOYED FOR

ONE YEAR.

THAT TAXED THE FAMILY

EMOTIONALLY AND

FINANCIALLY.

IT WAS TOUGH.

AND THERE WAS JUST NO PLACE

TO GO WITH IT.

PIER

OUR CHILDREN WERE YOUNG,

AND WE HAD JUST BOUGHT A

HOUSE, SO THERE WAS THIS

IMMENSE PRESSURE OF NOW WHAT

DO WE DO?

Reporter: SO WHEN JODY

GOT NOT ONE, BUT TWO JOB

OFFERS, HE TOOK BOTH.

THE FAMILY'S FINANCES

STARTED TO REBOUND, BUT THEY

WERE ALL PAYING A PRICE FOR

JODY'S LONG HOURS.

IT BECAME NORMAL I WASN'T

GOING TO BE AROUND FOR

DINNER.

I WOULD LEAVE AT 5:00 IN THE

MORNING AND GET HOME AROUND

7:00 AT NIGHT AND THEN GO

DOWNSTAIRS AND WORK.

EVERY TIME I WOULD HEAR,

IT'S OKAY, DAD, THAT YOU

CAN'T BE THERE, IT JUST TORE

ME UP.

Reporter: BUT THE

FAMILY COULDN'T SEEM TO MAKE

IT FINANCIALLY ON ONE

SALARY, SO JODY KEPT

WORKING.

ON THE MORNING, IN THE

TRAIN RIDE IN, I WOULD SLEEP

BECAUSE I DIDN'T SLEEP AT

NIGHT.

MOST OF MY LUNCHES WERE WORK

WORKING FOR THE OTHER JOB.

MY VACATIONS WERE ALL SPENT

DOING SALES CALLS.

Reporter: AFTER YEARS

OF WORKING AT THAT PACE,

JODY WAS EXHAUSTED.

HE QUIT HIS FULL-TIME JOB TO

FOCUS ON SALES.

AT THE SAME TIME, HE STARTED

TO WATCH "THE 700 CLUB."

I HEARD PAT TALKING ABOUT

BRINGING GOD THE TITHES.

AND THAT HE WOULD JUST POUR

OUT HIS BLESSINGS ON YOU.

THAT'S WHAT REALLY STARTED

OPENING UP MY EYES.

Reporter: JODY AND

VICKI BEGAN TO TITHE AND

GAVE TO CBN.

OVER THE NEXT TWO YEARS,

JODY SAYS HIS SALES OF

BUSINESS EQUIPMENT SOARED.

LOOKING BACK, HE REALIZED HE

WAS MAKING MORE MONEY

WORKING HALF THE HOURS HE

PREVIOUSLY WORKED DOING TWO

JOBS.

THERE WAS A 70% INCREASE

IN MY SALES VOLUME, WORKING

LESS TIME.

AND WHEN I STARTED TO THINK

ABOUT THAT, I'M LIKE, THERE

IS NO WAY I COULD HAVE SET

THE STAGE FOR THAT.

THAT'S JUST GOD SAYING, HEY,

YOU'RE STARTING TO PAY

ATTENTION TO HIM.

Reporter: TODAY THE

FRYS ARE MEMBERS OF CBN'S

CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE.

JODY SAYS HE NO LONGER

MISSES MEALS WITH HIS FAMILY

AND HE LOVES THE TIME HE CAN

SPEND WITH HIS TEENAGERS.

I LOVE THE TIME I CAN

SPEND WITH MY FAMILY, AND I

HAVE 50% MORE INCOME COMING

IN.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO

TITHE, AND TO WATCH "THE 700

CLUB" IF THEY DON'T

UNDERSTAND THE PRINCIPLE AND

WHAT THAT MEANS.

AND THE CHALLENGE IS, WHAT

ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Gordon: WHAT ARE YOU

WAITING FOR.

HERE IT IS FROM PROVERBS 3:

"KEEP MY COMPLANDZ I --

COMMANDS IN YOUR HEART FOR

THEY WILL PROLONG YOUR LIFE

MANY YEARS AND BRING YOU

PROSPERITY.

LET LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS

NEVER LEAVE YOU.

THEN YOU WILL WIN FAVOR AND

A GOOD NAME IN THE SIGHT OF

GOD AND MAN."

JODY LEARNED THAT.

HE LEARNED THAT FAITHFULNESS

WAS THE KEY.

WHEN YOU'RE FAITHFUL IN

GIVING, THEN GOD CUP COMES

IN AND HE BRINGS FAVOR TO

YOU.

HE ALSO BRINGS BALANCE IN

YOUR LIFE.

SOMEHOW WE GET CAUGHT UP IN

THE LIE THAT IF WE DOUBLE OR

QUADRUPLE OUR EFFORTS, IF WE

GET THE EXTRA JOB, SOMEHOW

WE'LL BREAK OUT OF IT.

WE NEED GOD AND HIS FAVOR,

AND IT IS THROUGH OBEDIENCE

TO HIM THAT YOU GET IT.

GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

$20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY.

SOME OF YOU SAY YOU CAN GIVE

MORE.

YOU CAN GIVE "THE 700 CLUB"

GOLD.

THAT'S $40.

THOUSAND CLUB IS $84 A

MONTH, AND THAT ADDS UP TO

$1,000 A YEAR.

AT WHATEVER LEVEL GOD IS

SPEAKING TO YOU, NOW IS THE

TIME TO CALL.

TODAY SHAQUITA OLIVER OWNS A

THRIVING BUSINESS.

BUT NOT LONG AGO, THIS

SINGLE MOTHER WAS BARELY

GETTING BY ON MINIMUM WAGE.

SHE WAS BEHIND ON HER BILLS

AND ABOUT TO BE EVICTED.

Reporter: SHAQUITA AL

OLIVER OWNS A HAIR STYLING

SALON SOUTH OF ATLANTA.

I LOVE WHAT I DO.

I LOVE PEOPLE.

I LOVE TO MAKE THEM PRETTY.

I LIKE PEOPLE THAT HAVE

ISSUES THAT COME THROUGH THE

DOOR AND THEY SAY, CAN YOU

FIX ME?

AND I SAY, YEAH, I CAN FIX

YOU.

Reporter: HER SALON IS

SUCCESSFUL, WHICH IS A GOOD

THING SINCE SHE IS A SINGLE

MOM RAISING FIVE KIDS.

BUT BEFORE SHE OPENED HER

BUSINESS, SHE WAS IN A

FINANCIAL MESS.

HER MINIMUM-WAGE JOB JUST

DIDN'T CUT IT.

IT WAS A LOT.

I WAS TRYING TO JUGGLE

PAYING THE RENT, PAYING THE

ELECTRICITY AND PROVIDING

THINGS FOR THE KIDS.

I JUST DIDN'T MAKE ENOUGH

MONEY.

Reporter: THREE MONTHS

BEHIND ON RENT AND FACING

EVICTION, SHAQUITA HAD HAD

NO IDEA WHAT TO DO.

HER PASTOR ENCOURAGED TO DO

WHAT THE BOOK OF MALACHI

URGED TO DO ABOUT MONEY.

IT SAYS TITHING IS THE

ONLY WAY THAT GOD SAYS YOU

CAN PUT HIM TO THE TEST.

I SAID, I'M GOING TO TRY

IT.

Reporter: A FEW WEEKS

LATER, SHE GOT A CALL FROM

WORK, SAYING SHE RECEIVED A

BONUS.

MY CHECK CAME THE DAY OF

THE EVICTION.

I STUCK MY RECEIPT UP TO

THEM, AND I SAID, YOU WON'T

BE NEEDING TO DO AN EVICTION

HERE.

Reporter: SHE CONTINUED

TO RECEIVE PA PROMOTION, AND

THE MORE SHE GAVE, THE MORE

SHE STARTED GETTING.

I'M GOING TO SOW INTO THE

"THE 700 CLUB" BECAUSE I

THINK THEY'RE A GOOD

GROUND.

Reporter: AND SHE

TAUGHT HER CHILDREN TO

TITHE.

AND SHE ASKED THEM IF THEY

WANTED TO GIVE TO "THE 700

CLUB," AND THEY ALL SAID

YES.

OH, TITHING WORKS.

IT NOT ONLY WORKS, IT

WORKS.

IT WORKS BEYOND WORKING.

Gordon: IT DOES WORK.

HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM

PSALM 37: "TRUST IN THE

LORD."

TRUST HIM.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM.

AND DO GOOD.

THEN YOU WILL LIVE SAFELY IN

THE LAND AND PROSPER.

TAKE DLIELT I DELIGHT IN

THE LORD, AND HE WILL GIVE

YOU YOUR HEART'S DESIRE.

SHAQUITA LEARNED THAT.

SHE IS GETTING HER HEART'S

DESIRE.

ALL BECAUSE SHE TOOK AN

ADVENTURE IN GIVING.

CBN PARTNERS ARE SAYING

$75,000 IS NOT ENOUGH.

THEY WANT TO TAKE IT ALL THE

WAY TO $150,000.

LORD, WE ASK FOR A BLESSING

TO THE PARTNERS WHO MADE IT

POSSIBLE TO ISSUE THIS

CHALLENGE.

WE SPEAK BLESSING INTO THEIR

LIVES.

WE ASK FOR THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN TO BE OPENED, AND

BLESSINGS BE POURED OUT THAT

THEY CANNOT CONTAIN.

LORD, SATISFY THEM WITH GOOD

THINGS, GIVE THEM THEIR

HEART'S DESIRE.

PROTECT THEM, AND LET THEM

KNOW THAT YOUR FAVOR, YOUR

ANOINTING AND YOUR WISDOM

WILL ABIDE WITH THEM.

BE WITH THEM NOW, FOR WE ASK

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, $175,000.

WE HAVE UNTIL THE END OF THE

HOUR TO MAKE IT.

CALL US, BE PART OF THIS.

BE PART OF EVERYTHING WE'RE

DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

BE PART OF CBN

INTERNATIONAL, PREACHING THE

GOSPEL TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE

NEVER HEARD IT BEFORE.

PREACHING THE GOSPEL IN

INDONESIA, INDIA,

PHILIPPINES, THROUGHOUT

AFRICA AND THROUGHOUT

LATIN-AMERICA.

WE'RE DOING IT IN YOUR NAME

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

SO CALL US, 1-800-759-0700.

KRISTI?

THANK YOU, GORDON.

YOU MENTIONED ALL THOSE

DIFFERENT PLACES.

NOW WE'RE GOING TO GO TO

KENYA.

EVERY DAY IN A VILLAGE IN

KENYA, A 6-YEAR-OLD LITTLE

GIRL TAKES A 14-MILE WALK,

AND SHE DOES IT JUST TO FIND

DRINKING WATER FOR HER

FAMILY.

Reporter: EVERY DAY

6-YEAR-OLD MARIAMA AND HER

BROTHER WALK 14 MILES

ROUNDTRIP JUST TO GET WATER

FOR THEIR FAMILY.

IT TAKES SO LONG THEY CAN'T

GO TO SCHOOL.

THEIR MOTHER WANTS THEM TO

GET AN EDUCATION, BUT THEY

CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT WATER.

EDUCATION GIVE OUR

CHILDREN A BRIGHTER FUTURE.

BUT THERE ARE NO SCHOOLS

NEAR US.

THE CLOSEST ONE IS A

TWO-HOUR WALK FROM HERE.

Reporter: SO INSTEAD OF

GOING TO SCHOOL, THEY CARRY

FIVE LITER BUCKETS OF WATER

ON PIECES OF CLOTH WRAPPED

OVER THEIR HEADS.

AS THEY WALK, THEY ARE

SCARED BECAUSE THE PATH IS

SHARED WITH ELEPHANTS AND

OTHER WILD ANIMALS.

MARIAMO WAITS TO GET

WATER UNTIL LATER AND THE

MORNING, AFTER THE ELEPHANTS

HAVE GOT WATER.

BUT THEY LIVE RIGHT BY THE

PLACE, AND SHE IS AFRAID

THEY COULD TRAMPLE HER.

Reporter: WHEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" HEARD

ABOUT IT, THEY DRILLED A

WELL.

MY PARENTS DREAMED OF

HAVING A WELL IN THEIR

VILLAGE, AND NOW THEIR

DREAMS HAVE FINALLY COME

TRUE.

Reporter: WE ALSO

WANTED THE CHILDREN HERE TO

HAVE A CHANCE TO GET A GOOD

EDUCATION.

SO WE BUILT A SCHOOL THAT IS

JUST A FEW MINUTES WALK FOR

DOZENS OF THE FAMILIES.

EVERY MORNING MARIAMO

GETS UP EARLY AND IS THE

FIRST ONE TO SCHOOL.

SHE IS EXCELLING IN HER

CLASSES.

I CAN SEE HER MIND OPENING

UP TO NEW POSSIBILITIES, AND

I WANT HER TO REACH THE

HIGHEST LEVEL OF EDUCATION

SHE CAN.

THANK YOU, "OPERATION

BLESSING."

THIS IS THE LIFE WE WERE

HOPING FOR.

WOW, SHE SAID ONE SPECIAL

WORD, "THIS IS THE LIFE WE

WERE HOPING FOR."

YOU GAVE THAT FAMILY HOPE.

AS A MOM, THAT'S THE ONE

THING I THINK WE ALL AGREE

ON, WHETHER WE'RE IN AFRICA,

THE UNITED STATES, UKRAINE,

WE WANT THE BEST FOR OUR

CHILDREN.

WE WANT THEM TO HAVE

EVERYTHING THAT IS AVAILABLE

TO THEM.

WHETHER IT IS THE CLEANEST

OF THE WATER OR HEALTHY FOOD

OR WHETHER IT IS A GREAT

EDUCATION.

NO MATTER WHAT, WE WANT THE

BEST.

AND THAT MOTHER WAS NO

DIFFERENT, AND YOU MADE THAT

HAPPEN FOR THAT LITTLE GIRL

AND FOR THAT FAMILY BECAUSE

YOU CARED ENOUGH TO BECOME A

"700 CLUB" PARTNER.

IF YOU'RE NOT ONE ALREADY,

IT IS TIME.

AT 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH.

AND MAYBE YOU'RE SAYING

KRISTI, 65 A DAY, I HAVE

THAT IN MY COAT FACT.

IN FACT, I'VE GOT A $20.

GIRL, I'VE GOT A $40.

IF YOU HAVE A $40 BILL, YOU

COULD BE A "700 CLUB" GOLD

PARTNER.

YOU MIGHT SAY, I HAVE A

$100.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE,

IF YOU HAVE ALL OF THIS

MONEY IN YOUR POCKET, FOR

1,000 CLUB, $84 A MONTH.

$2500, THAT'S $209.

THE FOUNDER'S CLUB, $400 A

MONTH, AND THE CHAIRMAN'S

CIRCLE FOR $500 A MONTH.

JUST LIKE THAT LITTLE GIRL

YOU SAW IN KENYA.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CHALLENGE.

SO CALL IN.

WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU THIS

SERIES PAT PUT TOGETHER

CALLED "THE THREE

BLESSINGS."

IN FACT, WENDY IS GOING TO

TALK ABOUT IT.

I AM SO READY.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," WE WANT TO GIVE YOU

PAT ROBERTSON'S LATEST

TEACHING.

IN THIS NEW D.V.D., HE

REVEALS THE THREE SECRETS TO

SUCCESS.

TAKE A LOOK.

THESE THREE BLESSINGS,

THAT PAT ROBERTSON MADE

YEARS AGO, YOU CAN SEE CBN

AND ALL THAT GOD HAS DONE,

THEY CHANGED HIS LEGION.

AND GOD IS NO RESPECTOR OF

PERSONS.

WHAT HE DID FOR PAT, HE WILL

DO FOR YOU.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THAT

SECRET OF SUCCESS.

IT'S IN HERE, THE THREE

BLESSINGS.

YOU CAN SAY, I'D LIKE TO

HAVE THIS, AND I'D LIKE TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB," $20.

BUT IF YOU JOIN AT $40, OUR

"700 CLUB" GOLD LEVEL, WE'LL

GIVE YOU THREE OF THE THREE

BLESSINGS.

I HAD TO PRACTICE SAYING

THAT, THREE OF THE THREE

BLESSINGS.

AND GORDON'S TEACHING ON THE

JEWISH JESUS, WHICH IS

INCREDIBLE.

THAT WILL BLESS YOU AS

WELL.

WHEN YOU JOIN AT 1,000

LEVEL, $84, WE'RE GOING TO

GIVE YOU FIVE.

WE'RE GOING TO BLESS YOU

WITH FIVE OF THE THREE

BLESSINGS.

THEY'RE GOING TO BLESS YOU

AND YOUR FAMILY AND

FRIENDS.

GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700, OR LOG ON

TO CBN.COM.

WE'RE WAITING TO TAKE YOUR

CALL RIGHT NOW.

Gordon: WHEN YOU CALL,

ASK FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING.

THE BANK DOES ALL OF THE

WORK.

THERE ARE NO CHECKS TO

WRITE, NOTHING TO MAIL IN.

WHEN YOU JOIN VIA PLEDGE

EXPRESS, THAT'S WHEN YOU GET

"THE JEWISH JESUS."

IF YOU WOULD LIKE THAT, ASK

FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS WHEN YOU

CALL.

FOR CRAIG, THE INSURANCE

BUSINESS WAS SLOW, SO CRAIG

TOOK A FINANCIAL RISK AND

INCREASED HIS INCOME BY

25%.

Reporter: CRAIG CAYLOR

HAS BEEN AROUND CARS ALL HIS

LIFE.

AS A BOY, HE HUNG OUT WITH

HIS DAD IN THE FAMILY'S AUTO

BODY SHOP.

SO IN 1999, HE WENT TO WORK

DOING DAMAGE APPRAISALS FOR

AN INSURANCE COMPANY.

WHAT WE DID WAS GO OUT

INTO THE FIELD, AND DO THE

APPRAISAL ON IT AND REPORT

BACK TO THE INSURANCE

COMPANY.

Reporter: BUT CRAIG WAS

STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY.

SO A FEW YEARS AGO, HE TOOK

THE BIGGEST RISK OF HIS LIFE

AND STARTED HIS OWN BUSINESS

AS AN INDEPENDENT

APPRAISER.

VERY SCARY.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHEN THE NEXT

PAYCHECK IS COMING, AND HOW

MUCH IT IS GOING TO BE.

YOU HAVE TO GET OUT AND WORK

HARD AND DO WHAT YOUR

COSTUMERS WANT.

Reporter: THAT SAME

YEAR, HE DECIDED TO GET

SERIOUS ABOUT A BIBLICAL

PRINCIPLE, TITHING.

I WAS LEARNING ABOUT

TITHING, FROM "THE 700

CLUB," THAT IT IS ONE OF

GOD'S BASIC AND FUNDAMENTAL

LAWS.

IF YOU GIVE, IT SHALL BE

GIVEN TO YOU, A GOOD

MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN,

SHAKEN TOGETHER, RUNNING

OVER.

YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE GOD.

THE MORE YOU GIVE, THE MORE

IT COMES BACK TO YOU.

Reporter: SO CRAIG

DECIDED TO TEST GOD AND

GIVE.

LOOKING BACK ON HIS

FINANCIAL RECORDS, HE

DISCOVERED AN INTERESTING

PATTERN.

I NOTICED THE FIRST YEAR,

AFTER I STARTED TO GIVE, AND

FAITHFULLY GIVE, I NOTICED

MY INCOME INCREASED 25% THAT

FIRST YEAR.

AND THE YEAR AFTER THAT, I

DECIDED TO GIVE MORE AND

TEST THEM EVEN MORE.

THAT YEAR IT WENT UP ANOTHER

35%.

Reporter: CRAIG, AGAIN,

INCREASED HIS GIVING.

I WAS THINKING, THIS DID

COULD NOT BE A COINCIDENCE.

AFTER I JOINED THE 1,000

CLUB, I NOTICED A 50%

INCREASE.

I TOOK A BIG LEAP OF FAITH,

AND GOD BLESSED ME.

Reporter: CRAIG TRACKED

HIS INCOME, AND AS YOU CAN

SEE, THE LAW OF RES

RECIPROCITY HAS BEEN

WORKING.

TODAY CRAIG ENJOYS SPENDING

TIME WITH HIS FAMILY AS HIS

BUSINESS CONTINUES TO GROW.

THE NUMBERS DON'T LIE.

IT IS ALL RIGHT THERE.

TRY IT.

TRUST GOD.

LEARN WHAT HIS LAWS ARE AND

OBEY HIS LAWS AND HE WILL

BLESS YOU.

Gordon: TRY IT.

TRY IT.

TEST GOD.

IT'S THE ONLY TIME WE GET TO

TEST HIM, IS IN OUR TITHES

AND OFFERINGS.

BE JUST LIKE CRAIG.

CREATE A CHART AND SAY,

OKAY, I'M GOING TO START

TRACKING THIS AND SEE WHAT

HAPPENS.

IT IS WHEN YOU START GIVING

FAITHFULLY, AND YOU

UNDERSTAND THE PART OF THE

PROMISE, "WITH THE MEASURE

YOU USE, IT IS MEASURED BACK

TO YOU."

AND SO CRAIG TESTED THAT.

HE SAID, OKAY, I'M GOING TO

INCREASE AND SEE WHAT GOD

DOES.

YOU SAW THAT CHART.

HIS INCOME WENT UP.

WHY?

BECAUSE OF FAITHFULNESS IN

GIVING.

HE SAID, OKAY, I'M GOING TO

PROVE GOD IN THIS.

AND YOU SAW THE JOY IN HIS

FACE AS TO WHAT HAPPENED TO

HIM.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF

YOU JUST TEST HIM.

JUST TRY IT.

IF YOU WANT TO START AN

ADVENTURE IN GIVING, CALL

US, 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A PART OF EVERYTHING YOU'RE

DOING.

I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S JUST $20 A MONTH, 65

CENTS A DAY.

AND SO DO IT NOW.

IF WE CAN GET THE RED NUMBER

UP.

WE'RE IN A $175,000

CHALLENGE.

THAT RED NUMBER IS THE

AMOUNT LEFT.

WE'VE GOT $58,000 TO GO --

$56,000 -- IT'S HAPPENING.

JOIN WITH US.

WHEN YOU CALL, ASK FOR

ELECTRONIC PRESS.

ASK FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS.

IT'S ELECTRONIC GIVING.

AND I WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS,

"THE JEWISH JESUS."

YOU CAN SEE HOW JESUS

FULFILLED THE 50

PROPHECIES.

THERE ARE MORE THAN THAT IN

THE OLD TESTAMENT, BUT WE

TOOK 50 OF THEM TO SHOW YOU

THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE

PERSON WHO COULD FULFILL THE

MESSIANIC PROPHECIES IN THE

OLD TESTAMENT, AND THAT'S

JESUS OF NAZARETH.

I WANT YOU TO HAVE "THE

JEWISH JESUS."

AND THERE IS A SPECIAL

ADD-ON TO IT, THE JESUS

FAMILY.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CHURCH

IN JERUSALEM AFTER THE DEATH

AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS

CHRIST.

HOW DID HIS BROTHER, JAMES,

TAKE OVER THE CHURCH.

AND UNCLES AND NEPHEWS AND

GREAT NEPHEWS.

ALL A GREAT TESTAMENT TO THE

FAITHFULNESS OF THE EARLY

CHURCH IN JERUSALEM FOR 100

YEARS AFTER THE DEATH AND

RESURRECTION OF JESUS

CHRIST.

IF YOU WANT THAT, ASK FOR IT

WHEN YOU CALL.

YOU KNOW, GORDON, I WAS

WATCHING THIS LAST NIGHT.

IT WAS REALLY CAPTIVATING,

BUT THE ONE PART I LOVED WAS

JESUS' FAMILY.

I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE

UNCLES AND ALL OF THE OTHER

PEOPLE.

THAT WAS REALLY INTRIGUING

TO ME.

I WAS SITTING THERE, LIKE,

REALLY?

REALLY?

I DIDN'T KNOW.

Gordon: ONE OF THE

GREAT PARTS IS HOW ONE OF

HIS RELATIVES LED THE CHURCH

OUT OF JERUSALEM WHEN HE SAW

THE PROPHECY OF JESUS BEING

FULFILLED.

WHEN YOU SEE THE ARMIES

SURROUNDING JERUSALEM,

THAT'S WHEN YOU LEAVE, AND

IT PRESERVED THE CHURCH.

IT IS AMAZING.

HOW DIFFICULT WOULD BE IT TO

BE LIKE THE BROTHER OF

JESUS.

LIKE MARY SAYING TO YOU ALL

OF THE TIME, CAN YOU BE LIKE

YOUR BROTHER.

CAN'T YOU BE PERFECT LIKE

THAT?

WE'RE GOING TO SWITCH

GEARS.

I LOVE TO TRAVEL.

I'VE BEEN ALL AROUND THE

WORLD, BUT A PLACE I HAVEN'T

BEEN TO IS INDIA.

I HAVE HEARD IN PARTS OF

SOUTHERN INDIA, IT IS REALLY

HARD TO EARN A GOOD LIVING.

FOR THE MAN IN OUR NEXT

STORY, IT IS EVEN MORE

CHALLENGING BECAUSE HE SPENT

MOST OF HIS LIFE CRIPPLED

AND ENERO.

Terry: POLIO CRIPPLED

HIM WHEN HE WAS A BABY.

THEN WHEN HE WAS EIGHT, THE

UNTHINKABLE HAPPENED.

MY MOM DIED, AND I WAS

LEFT ALL ALONE.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE GAVE ME

FOOD.

BUT I BEGAN WORKING WHEN I

WAS VERY YOUNG, JUST SO I

COULD HAVE ENOUGH TO EAT.

Reporter: HE HEARD

ABOUT JESUS AND STARTED

GOING TO CHURCH.

FOR SEVERAL YEARS, HE

LEARNED HOW MUCH GOD TRULY

LOVED HIM.

WHEN HE WAS 27, SUBRAMANI

GAVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST.

I DEPENDED ON JESUS FOR

EVERYTHING.

I ALWAYS PRAYED, DEAR JESUS,

I DON'T HAVE ANYONE.

I ONLY HAVE YOU.

I CAN'T WALK.

PLEASE, LORD, HELP ME.

Terry: SUPRAMANI MADE A

LIVING BY WEEDING PALM

LEAVES.

BUT OVER THE YEARS, PEOPLE

STARTED USING OTHER

MATERIALS AND HIS INCOME

DWINDLED.

SO I LEARNED HOW TO MAKE

CANDLES.

I KNEW I COULD EARN A LIVING

DOING THAT.

BUT I COULDN'T AFFORD THE

TOOLS TO HAVE MY OWN

BUSINESS.

Terry: THAT'S WHEN HIS

PASTOR LEARNED ABOUT CBN AND

HUMIDITY SUBRAMANI CONTACT

US.

HE RECEIVED A COUPLE OF VERY

SPECIAL GIFTS.

THE WHEELCHAIR IS VERY

HELPFUL.

I CAN MOVE AND FINISH ALL OF

MY CHORES QUICKLY AND

EASILY.

IT IS SO SMOOTH.

Terry: WE ALSO GAVE HIM

ALL OF THE TOOLS AND

MATERIALS HE NEEDED TO START

HIS OWN CANDLE-MAKING

BUSINESS.

I CAN MAKE 1 10 CANDLES

A DAY AND EARN ENOUGH TO GET

FOOD AND THINGS I NEED.

I THANK JESUS FOR SENDING

CBN TO HELP ME.

YOU HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THE

PRAYERS OF THE RIGHTEOUS

AVAILETH MUCH.

LOOK HOW HE IS BLESSED.

YOU KNOW HOW YOU SOMETIMES

WATCH THESE STORIES AND YOUR

HEART JUST GOES OUT.

AND YOU'RE LIKE, GOD, WHAT

ELSE CAN I DO?

YOU BLESSED ME SO MUCH?

HOW CAN I BLESS OTHERS?

WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?

LISTEN, GOD IS ANSWERING

THAT PRAYER.

HE IS GIVING YOU THAT

OPPORTUNITY RIGHT NOW TO

BLESS SOMEONE MAYBE YOU

NEVER MET BEFORE, YOU

PROBABLY NEVER HAVE MET

BEFORE, A NAME YOU DON'T

KNOW, A FACE YOU HAVE NEVER

SEEN, BUT YOU WILL CHANGE

THEIR LIFE.

HOW DOES IT HAPPEN?

IT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PICK UP

THE PHONE AND YOU TAKE THAT

LEAP OF FAITH, THAT

BOWLEDNES BOLDNESS OF

ENCOURAGEMENT TO SAY, I'M

GOING TO GIVE.

EVEN THOUGH IT MIGHT BE

CHALLENGING RIGHT NOW, I'M

GOING TO DO IT.

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, $20.

MAYBE THERE ARE A LOT OF YOU

WHO ARE A "THE 700 CLUB"

PARTNER.

MAYBE YOU'VE BEEN ONE FOR

SOME TIME.

LET'S TAKE IT TO THE NEXT

LEVEL.

IT IS JUST TIME.

RATHER THAN "700 CLUB" GOLD,

YOU CAN ALWAYS GO -- WHAT'S

AFTER GOLD?

Gordon: 1,000.

THANK YOU, GORDON FOR

HELPING ME.

THAT'S $84.

Gordon: YOU SHOULD GET

YOU READING GLASSES.

I DO NEED READING

GLASSES.

THESE CONTACTS ARE SLIGHTLY

BLURRY.

THERE ARE SO MANY LEVELS.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK

UP THE PHONE AND CALL, AND

IF I WASN'T CLEAR ENOUGH,

ONE OF THE COUNSELLORS, WHO

ARE STANDING BY, LIKE THAT

LOVELY LADY RIGHT THERE,

SHE'S GOT ALL OF THE

ANSWERS -- AND SHE'LL TELL

WHAT CLUB LEVELS ARE

AVAILABLE.

1-800-759-0700, OR YOU CAN

LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

THERE IS THE NUMBER RIGHT

THERE.

JUST KNOW WHEN YOU CALL,

THAT NUMBER IS DOUBLED.

Gordon: IN MANY ARAB

COUNTRIES, PEOPLE WITH

DISABILITIES OFTEN SPEND

THEIR LIVES AS OUTCASTS,

LITTLE CHANCE OF GOING TO

SCHOOL OR FINDING A JOB.

THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE

CASE FOR A PALESTINIAN GIRL

NAMED TAMRA, WITHOUT HELP

FROM "OPERATION BLESSING."

TAMRA ALWAYS WALKS AROUND

ON HER TOES, LIKE A LITTLE

BAL REN FLA.

BALLERINA.

SHE WAS BORN WITH A

DISABILITY, AND SO WHEN SHE

WAS ONE-WEEK-OLD, HER MOTHER

ABANDONED HER.

AND IAN TOOK HER IN.

I LOVE HER.

I AM DOING EVERYTHING TO

GIVE HER A BETTER LIFE.

SHE IS MY BABY.

IT'S THAT SIMPLE.

Reporter: SHE KNOWS

THAT HER DAUGHTER NEEDS

EXPENSIVE SURGERY, BUT HEAM

DOESN'T HAVE THE INCOME.

COULD DO CRAFTS AT HOME,

BUT I DON'T HAVE THE MONEY

TO GET STARTED.

Reporter: IN THE

KITCHEN, THEIR CUPBOARDS ARE

BARE.

SOMETIMES I THINK ABOUT

HOW DIFFICULT MY LIFE IS,

AND I DON'T WANT TO LIVE

ANYMORE.

BUT I GO TO CHURCH AND I

PRAY FOR MY DAUGHTER.

Reporter: HER BIGGEST

WORRY IS ABOUT WHAT WILL

HAPPEN TO TAMRA.

RIGHT NOW SHE IS TOO YOUNG

TO KNOW SHE IS DIFFERENT

FROM ANYONE ELSE.

HERE IN THE WEST BANK,

GROWING UP WITH JUST A MINOR

DISABILITY LIKE THIS ONE

WOULD MEAN IN SCHOOL OTHER

CHILDREN WOULD TEASE AND

MAKE FUN OF TAMRA EVERY

SINGLE DAY.

WHEN SHE GOT OLDER, IT WOULD

BE HARD FOR HER TO FIND WORK

OR GET MARRIED AND HAVE A

FAMILY OF HER OWN.

WHAT THIS PRECIOUS LITTLE

GIRL DOESN'T REALIZE, TODAY

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

GOING TO CHANGE HER LIFE

FOREVER.

"OPERATION BLESSING" PAID

FOR SURGERY TO FIX TAMRA'S

FEET.

WE ALSO BOUGHT HEAM ENOUGH

FOOD TO FILL HER CABINETS

AND DRAWERS.

AND WE GOT HER SET UP WITH

EVERYTHING SHE NEEDS TO MAKE

JEWELRY AT HOME.

AND SINCE MOM GOT SOME NEW

WORK TABLES AND OTHER

FURNITURE, WE GAVE TAMRA A

COZY NEW BED AND BLANKETS

SHE LOVES.

JUST A FEW MONTHS AFTER HER

SURGERY, TAMRA WAS LEARNING

HOW TO WALK NORMALLY.

SOON SHE'LL BE RUNNING AND

JUMPING WITH THE REST OF THE

KIDS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

HER LIFE.

TAMRA IS DOING REALLY

WELL.

SHE RUNS AND JUMPS AND

DANCES A LOT.

AS A MOTHER, I'M VERY

EXCITED.

NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND HOW

HAPPY I AM.

I THANK GOD FOR ANSWERING

OUR PRAYERS.

I ALSO THANK GOD FOR

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND

EVERYONE THAT HELPS.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

TAMRA'S MIRACLE.

TO GIVE HER A HOPE, A

FUTURE, A LIFE.

WE'RE DOING WORK IN THE WEST

BANK, AND WORK WITH

PALESTINIAN CHRISTIANS AND

PALL PAL -- AND PALESTINIAN

MUSLIMS.

ALL MADE POSSIBLE BECAUSE

PEOPLE LIKE YOU CARE ENOUGH

TO GIVE.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

EVERYTHING WE'RE DOING, JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT.

WE'RE COUNTING DOWN TO

VICTORY ON A $175,000

CHALLENGE.

WHAT THAT MEANS IS YOUR

GIFTS GET MATCHED, DOLLAR

FOR DOLLAR, UP TO $175,000.

CALL RIGHT NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO OVER TO WENDY AT

THE PHONES.

THANKS, GORDON.

WHEN YOU CALL, WE HAVE

SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR YOU.

IT'S CALLED "THE THREE

BLESSINGS."

PAT ROBERTSON JUST RECORDED

THIS NEW D.V.D.

RIGHT NOW WE WANT TO GIVE

YOU A QUICK PREVIEW.

TAKE A LOOK.

YES, FAVOR IS ONE OF

THOSE BLESSINGS.

THERE ARE TWO MORE.

WE'RE GOING TO TELL YOU

ABOUT IT A LITTLE LATER.

KRISTI, I'M GOING TO THROW

IT BACK OVER TO YOU.

THANK YOU, WENDY.

EVERY YEAR "OPERATION

BLESSING" PROVIDES

PREMEDICAL CARE FOR

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ALL

AROUND THE WORLD.

LIKE FOR THIS LITTLE BOY IN

GUATEMALA, WHO WAS BADLY IN

NEED OF SURGERY.

Reporter: NOBODY ENJOYS

LIFE ON THE FARM MORE THAN

8-YEAR-OLD ANGEL GUSTAVO.

HIS FATHER IS A CARE KEEPER

THERE, AND HE LOVES TO

HELP.

I HAVE MANY JOBS, I FEED

THE PIGS AND COLLECT

COCONUTS.

HE IS A GOOD BOY.

I LOVE THAT HE COMES TO HELP

ME.

Reporter: EVERYTHING

WAS GOING WELL FOR ANGEL

UNTIL HE DEVELOPED A PAINFUL

HERNIA.

I TOLD MY MOM THAT THE

HERNIA HURTS SO BAD THAT I

COULDN'T LIFT.

WE TOOK ANGEL TO THE

DOCTOR AND HE SAID OUR SON

NEEDED A SURGERY.

AND WE CANNOT AFFORD THAT.

AT NIGHT I CRIED WITH HIM.

I TRIED TO SIT AT HIS

BEDSIDE, BUT I COULDN'T DO

ANYTHING TO HELP HIM.

Reporter: WHEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" LEARNED

ABOUT ANGEL'S CONDITION, WE

QUICKLY ARRANGED FOR THE

SURGERY TO REPAIR HIS

HERNIA.

A FEW WEEKS LATER HE WAS

BACK ON THE FARM, WORKING

HARD AND HAVING FUN.

I FEEL LIKE THE HAPPIEST

MAN IN THE WORLD, TO SEE HIM

RUN AND HAVE FUN WITH HIS

FRIENDS.

I AM SO HAPPY THAT HE IS

NOT IN PAIN ANYMORE.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," BECAUSE YOU GAVE

ME THAT SURGERY.

AND NOW I CAN DO EVERYTHING

I WANT.

YOU GAVE THAT LITTLE BOY

FREEDOM.

HOW NO PHENOMENAL IS THAT.

WHEN I FIRST STARTED WORKING

FOR "THE 700 CLUB" ABOUT 13

YEARS AGO, WE TRAVELLED ON A

WHOLE BUNCH OF DIFFERENT

MEDICAL MISSIONS, AND I

WOULD SEE LIVES BEING

CHANGED.

AND HOW PEOPLE WOULD WALK

FOR MILES AND MILES AND

MILES, JUST TO GET THE

ATTENTION, WELDER I WHETHER

IT WAS EYE GLASSES OR TO GO

TO THE DENTIST OR FOR A

CHILD WITH A CLEFT PALLET TO

BE SEWN TOGETHER.

YOU MAKE THAT HAPPEN WHEN

YOU'RE A "THE 700 CLUB"

MEMBER.

IF YOU ARE, YAY, THANK YOU

FOR MAKING THAT HAPPEN.

LIFE.

WE NEED YOU TO PICK UP THE
