Reporter: THE SAWS ARE

BUZZING IN KELLY'S CUSTOM

CABINET SHOP, WHICH MEANS

BUSINESS IS GOOD.

WHEN HE WAS STARTING OUT,

HIS WIFE, PAM, SAYS IT WAS A

DIFFERENT STORY.

BUSINESS WAS NOT WELL,

AND THE CONSTRUCTION WAS

DRIED UP.

Reporter: KELLY TOOK

WHATEVER JOBS HE COULD

FIND.

IT WAS HERE, THERE,

MILITANT HAVE TO WORK AT --

MIGHT HAVE TO WORK AT

NIGHT.

YOU BASICALLY HAD TO TAKE IT

TO MAKE SOME MONEY TO PAY

BILLS.

IT WAS GETTING WORSE AND

WORSE.

WE HAD OUR ELECTRICITY

TURNED OFF.

Reporter: AS THE BILLS

PILED UP, KELLY PRAYED FOR

STRENGTH.

KEEP ME GOING.

I KNEW SOMETHING WAS GOING

TO COME, BUT I JUST DIDN'T

KNOW WHEN OR HOW OR WHAT WE

REALLY HAD TO DO.

Reporter: AND THEN PAM

STARTED WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," WHERE SHE HEARD PAT

ROBERTSON TALKING ABOUT WHAT

GOD SAYS ABOUT FINANCES AND

GIVING.

HE SAID TEST ME, PROVE

ME.

WHEN YOU GIVE, SEE IF I WILL

NOT OPEN THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR OUT A

BLESSING SO GREAT YOU WON'T

BE ABLE TO CONTAIN IT.

Reporter: AS FIRST SHE

DIDN'T FULLY UNDERSTAND.

AND THEN --

IT JUST CAME TO ME, GIVE,

AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO

YOU.

AND I WAS LIKE, YOU'VE GOT

TO BE KIDDING ME.

THAT'S HOW SIMPLE IT IS.

AND I WROTE A LITTLE $10

CHECK AND I SENT IT IN, AND

WITHIN ONE WEEK, MY HUSBAND

WAS OFFERED A JOB.

FROM ZERO TO $1,000 A WEEK.

I WAS ABLE TO PAY EVERY BILL

IN FULL WITH MONEY LEFT

OVER.

FROM THEN ON, WE'VE

ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO PAY OUR

BILLS.

I WISH SOMEBODY HAD SLAPPED

ME IN THE HEAD SOONER.

Reporter: EVER SINCE

THEN, THEY NEVER STOPPED

GIVING.

IN FACT, THEY STARTED GIVING

MORE.

I KNEW WHAT GOD WAS GOING

TO DO IF I JUST CONTINUED TO

BE FAITHFUL.

SO WE WERE.

Reporter: TODAY'S

KELLY'S CABINET SHOP IS BUSY

AS EVER.

TO THIS DAY, MY HUSBAND

HAS NEVER ADVERTISED.

HE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A SIGN

ON HIS SHOP.

Reporter: WORKING IN

THE CONSTRUCTION WORLD, THE

WELCHS KNOW ABOUT THE UPS

AND DOWNS OF FINANCES.

BUT THEY ENCOURAGE PEOPLE,

NO MATTER WHAT, STAY THE

COURSE.

HE SAID HE WOULD MEET ALL

OF MY NEEDS ACCORDING TO HIS

RICHES AND GLORY THROUGH

CHRIST JESUS, AND HE HAS AND

HE STILL DOES.
