The 700 Club - September 25, 2012

As newlyweds, the Chens thought they were ready to face anything—until their doctor suggested abandoning their newborn. Read Transcript



GOOD MORNING, MICHAEL.
THIS IS CINDY, TESTING FOR "THE 700 CLUB,"


SEPTEMBER25, 2012.
カカカ


[APPLAUSE]
Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB."


HIGH SCHOOL, GRADUATION, FOOTBALL GAMES, AND
MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONIES.


THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE PUBLIC EVENTS
WHERE AMERICANS ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO MENTION


GOD.
Terry: PAUL STRAND LOOKS AT THE GROWING


WAVE OF ANTI CHRISTIAN HOSTILITY COMING FROM
AMERICA'S COURTS.


Reporter: ANGELA FACED THE REAL POSSIBILITY
OF GOING TO JAIL FOR HER FATE.


IT BEGAN WHEN A JUDGE RULED NO ONE AT HER
TEXAS HIGH SCHOOL COULD USE THE NAME GOD OR


PRAY.
SHE FELT SHE SHOULD PRAY, EVEN IF IT MADE


HER GO TO JAIL.
I THOUGHT I HAD TO MENTALLY PREPARE MYSELF


FOR WHAT COULD BE COMING.
Reporter: THIS EXAMPLE IS ONE OF 640 CASES


OF RELIGIOUS HOSTILITY CITED IN THIS REPORT.
LIBERTY INSTITUTE'S JEFF MATIRE, WHO TAKES


ON MANY OF THESE CASES, HELPED PUT THE REPORT
TOGETHER.


THE RATE OF HOSTILITY TO PEOPLE OF FATE
IS OVERWHELMING.


Reporter: ONE CASE INVOLVED THE VETERAN'S
ADMINISTRATION DEMANDING TO PREVIEW PASTOR


SCOTT'S PRAYER BEFORE A MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY.
I HAD NEVER SAID A PRAYER IN MY LIFE WHERE


I DIDN'T END IT BY SAYING "IN THE NAME OF
JESUS CHRIST, I PRAY, AMEN."


Reporter: ALL THESE PEOPLE WERE TOLD THEY
HAD TO STOP MENTIONING HIM.


THAT MAKES ME FEEL SMALL.
Reporter: HE IS ALSO WORKING TO SAVE THIS


VETERANS' MEMORIAL CROSS IN SAN DIEGO, ONE
OF SEVERAL CASES COULD HAVE SERIOUS NATIONAL


CONSEQUENSES IF COURTS ORDER THEIR REMOVAL.
ARE WE GOING TO SANDBLAST GOD FROM THE


TOMB OF THE UNKNOWN SOLDIERS.
Reporter: BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS, IF BELIEVEIES


FIGHT, THEY USUALLY WIN.
YOU NEED TO STAND UP AND FIGHT.


Reporter: ONE DAY BEFORE HER GRADUATION,
SHE COULD PRAY AND SAY WHATEVER SHE WANTED.


I THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT LOVE, AND A
NATION WHERE WE ARE FREE, AND IT IS IN JESUS'


NAME I PRAY.
Reporter: AND COURTS EVENTUALLY RULED PASTOR


RAINY, AND ALL VETERANS AT BURIALS ARE ALLOWED
TO FREELY EXPRESS THEIR FAITH.


BUT AMERICANS' RELIGIOUS LIBERTY HANGS IN
THE BALE.


PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS.
Gordon: SOMEWHERE IN OUR CULTURE, IN MY


LIFETIME, WE'VE GOTTEN IT IN OUR HEADS THAT
SOMEHOW PRAYER IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.


AND THE SUPREME COURT NEEDS TO STEP UP AND
PUT SOME RESTRICTIONS ON THIS BECAUSE THEY'VE


GONE SO FAR WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE
THAT EVEN ERECTING A CROSS IS A PUBLIC CEMETERY


IS NOW DEEMED SOMEHOW ILLEGAL.
WE HAVE THE RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH.


WE ALSO HAVE THE RIGHT OF FREE ASSEMBLY.
WE ALSO HAVE THE RIGHT OF FREE EXERCISE OF


RELIGION.
AND AS CITIZENS, WE SHOULD NEVER SURRENDER


THOSE RIGHTS.
WE NEED TO STAND UP AND FIGHT, EVEN THOUGH


IT DOES COST A LOT.
IMAGINE TAKING A CASE FOR A HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION


SPEECH ALL THE WAY TO AN APPELLATE COURT.
THAT TAKES A LOT OF MONEY.


BUT THERE ARE GROUPS THAT ARE THERE FOR US
AND TO HELP US, AND SO WE NEED TO USE THEM.


PRAYER IS BEING DROPPED AT YET ANOTHER HIGH
SCHOOL.


LEE WEBB HAS MORE ON THAT STORY FROM THE CBN
NEWS ROOM.


Lisa: A PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL IN WEST VIRGINIA
HAS DROPPED PRE GAME PRAYERS FROM THEIR FOOTBALL


GAMES.
SISSONVILLE HIGH SCHOOL MADE THE DECISION


AFTER THE FREEDOM FROM RELIGION FOUNDATION
DEMANDED THE SCHOOL STOP PLAYING.


MANY STUDENTS AND PARENTS DO NOT AGREE WITH
THAT DECISION.


PRINCIPAL JOHN REEDY SAYS HALF OF THE SCHOOLS
650 STUDENTS WORE PURPLE ON FRIDAY TO SHOW


THEIR SUPPORT FOR THE PRE GAME PRAYER.
AND FANS RECITED THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AT THE


FOOTBALL GAME.
PRESIDENT OBAMA IS TAKING A BREAK FROM THE


ASSEMBLY.
THE PRESIDENT ALSO SAYS THAT THE U.S. WON'T


ALLOW IRAN TO DEVELOP NUCLEAR WEAPONS, BUT
IRAN'S PRESIDENT, MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD, DENIES


HIS COUNTRY IS BUILDING THOSE BOMBS.
HE TOLD REPORTERS IN NEW YORK IRAN ISN'T WORRIED


ABOUT AN ISRAELI STRIKE ON IRAN.
HE ADDED THAT ISRAEL HAS NO ROUTES IN THE


MIDDLE EAST AND WOULD BE ELIMINATED.
REPRESENTATIVES FROM MUSLIM COUNTRIES ARE


AGAIN ASKING THE U.N. TO PASS AN INTERNATIONAL
LAW AGAINST BLASPHEMY.


IT COMES AFTER MUSLIM RIOTS AGAINST A MOVIE
ATTACKING ISLAM.


THE 57th ORGANIZATION OF ISLAMIC CORPORATION
HAS PUSHED THE U.S. TO PASS A LAW AGAINST


DEFAMATION OF RELIGION.
BUT THE U.S. AND OTHER WESTERN DEMOCRACIES


HAVE TURNED BACK THOSE SUGGESTIONS.
GORDON, THEY ARGUE THEY RUN COUNTER TO THE


IDEA OF FREE SPEECH AND RELIGION.
Gordon: ABSOLUTELY THEY RUN COUNTER TO


IT.
WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED TO A PAKISTANI


GIRL, WHEN AN IMAM MADE UP CHARGES AND GOT
HER THROWN INTO JAIL FOR SUPPOSEDLY BLASPHEMY


AGAINST ISLAM, BUT THE PUSH IS ON, AND WE'LL
SEE MORE AND MORE EFFORTS TO TRY TO MAKE IT


ILLEGAL.
THE MUSLIM STATES THE MUSLIM ORGANIZED


STATES WILL TRY TO DO THAT, GET IT PASSED
THROUGH THE U.N., AND HAVE IT BE SOME SORT


OF BASIC HUMAN RIGHT.
AT THE SAME TIME, EVEN THOUGH THEY SIGNED


OFF THE DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS, THEY
DON'T OBSERVE IT THEMSELVES.


THERE IS FREEDOM OF RELIGION, FREEDOM OF CONSCIOUS.
TRY GOING TO SAUDI ARABIA AND BUILDING A CHURCH,


AND YOU'LL FIND OUT, NO, YOU CAN'T DO THAT
THERE.


WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"
RIGHT AFTER THIS.


Gordon: FOR


MARCO AND REBECCA, DEBT WAS A WAY OF LIFE.
THEY HAD NO IDEA HOW TO LIVE ON A BUDGET,


AND THE BILLS PILED UP.
THEN REBECCA MADE A DECISION THAT HELPED THEM


TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR DEBT AND STILL HAVE
MONEY TO SPARE.


Reporter: MARCO AND REBECCA CALLED LITTLE
ROCK, ARKANSAS, HOME.


REBECCA DRIVES A SCHOOL BUS, AND MARCO IS
A WELDER.


SEVERAL YEARS AGO, THEY WEREN'T MAKING AS
MUCH AS THEY DO NOW AND COULDN'T PAY THEIR


BILLS.
IT WAS A VERY DARK TIME.


IT WAS VERY DEPRESSING.
AND WE HAD TO LET THINGS GO.


EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, WE HAD TO BORROW
SOME MONEY, AND THEN I HAD TO TURN AROUND


AND PAY THAT BACK.
SO THAT WAS ALSO MAKING IT A LITTLE BIT MORE


STRESSFUL.
Reporter: THEN REBECCA LEARNED SOMETHING


ON "THE 700 CLUB."
I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO BUDGET.


I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT BUDGETING LOOKED LIKE.
I KNEW YOU GOT MONEY AND YOU PAID YOUR BILLS


AND THAT WAS IT.
GORDON TALKED ABOUT PAYING OFF THE SMALLER


AMOUNTS FIRST, AND LITERALLY STARTED WITH
THE SMALLEST ONE, AND STARTED PAYING ON IT,


WAS CONSISTENT WITH MY PAYMENT, AND PAID IT
OFF AND WENT TO THE NEXT ONE AND THE NEXT


ONE, AND ON DOWN THE LIST.
I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE THE BILLS NOW WERE CONTROLLING


ME.
I NOW CONTROLLED MY BILLS.


Reporter: REBECCA ASKED MARCO IF THEY COULD
TITHE TO THEIR CHURCH AND GIVE TO CBN.


MARCO AGREED.
WHEN HE SAID SHE WANTED TO START GIVING


TO CBN, I SAID, BABY, YOU DO WHAT IS BEST
WITH OUR MONEY.


Reporter: IMMEDIATELY THEIR FINANCIAL SITUATION
CHANGED.


WHEN I REALIZED I COULD NOT ONLY PAY MY
BILLS, BUT TO PAY THEM ON TIME, I JUST WANTED


TO CRY.
BECAUSE THIS WAS GOD WORKING THIS.


HE WAS TAKING THAT LITTLE BIT THAT WE WERE
GIVING AND TURNING IT INTO SOMETHING AMAZING.


HE WAS SHOWING US THAT HE DOES WORK.
HE WAS SHOWING US THAT YOU CAN TRUST HIM.


HE WAS SHOWING US THAT GIVING DOES WORK.
IT WAS A WELCOME BLESSING.


KNOWING THAT I DIDN'T HAVE TO GO AND BEG AND
BORROW TO TRY TO SURVIVE ANYMORE.


Reporter: THEN THEY DOUBLED THEIR GIVING
TO CBN.


SHORTLY AFTER, MARCO GOT A RAISE, AND REBECCA
WAS PROMOTED TO SUPERVISOR OF ALL OF THE SCHOOL


BUS ROUTES.
NOW WE CAN AFFORD THESE EXTRAS.


WE WERE PURCHASING THINGS WE DIDN'T THINK
WE COULD.


AND IT WAS WITH CASH.
IT WASN'T GOING INTO DEBT.


IT WAS MONEY WE HAD LEFT OVER AFTER PAYING
OUR BILLS.


THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING TO US.
WE'RE JUST TWO PEOPLE, ORDINARY INDIVIDUALS,


AND GOD HAS REALLY SHOWN HIS BLESSING AND
HIS FAVOR ON IS FOR BEING OBEDIENT.


HE CAME THROUGH.
YOU CAN'T OUTDO GOD.


Gordon: HERE ARE THE WORDS FROM JESUS,
LUKE 6: "GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU."


YOU HAVE TO PUT THIS IN MOTION, AND THEN IT
WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU "A GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED


DOWN, SHAKEN, WILL BE POURED INTO YOUR LAP.
FOR WITH THE MEASURE YOU USE, IT WILL BE MEASURED


BACK TO YOU."
MARCO AND REBECCA WERE IN DEBT.


THEY WERE IN TROUBLE.
AND THEY HEARD A TEACHING ON HOW TO CREATE


A BUDGET.
AND LET ME GIVE THAT TO YOU RIGHT NOW SO YOU


CAN HAVE THE SAME TOOLS THAT THEY HAD THAT
TURNED THEIR LIVES AROUND.


I CALL IT THE 10 10 80 RULE.
TITHE 10% OF YOUR INCOME, AND MAKE SURE YOU


PAY YOURSELF.
THIS IS WHERE A LOT OF PEOPLE MESS UP.


YOU'RE NOT PAYING YOURSELF.
YOU'RE NOT LOOKING AT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY'S


FINANCES YOU'RE REALLY IN BUSINESS.
YOU'RE IN BUSINESS FOR YOUR FUTURE, YOU'RE


IN BUSINESS FOR YOUR COLLEGE TUITION FOR YOU'RE
CHILDREN, AND YOU'RE IN BUSINESS FOR YOUR


RETIREMENT.
IF YOU'RE NOT PAYING YOURSELF, YOU'RE NOT


SAVING.
WHEN THESE UNEXPECTED EXPENDITURES COME, YOU


WON'T HAVE ANY MONEY IN THE BANK TO PAY THEM.
AND THEN WRITE OUT ALL OF YOUR EXPENSES.


IT'S GOT TO BE 80% OF YOUR INCOME.
IF YOU FOLLOW THAT SIMPLE RULE, YOU WILL PROSPER.


YOU WILL INCREASE YEAR OVER YEAR OVER YEAR.
THERE WILL BE A POUNDING OF IT.


AND JUST IMAGINE 20 YEARS OF PAYING YOURSELF
10%, AND HOW MUCH MONEY WILL ACCUMULATE.


IF YOU'RE IN DEBT, YOU NEED TO GET OUT OF
DEBT.


AND JUST LIKE REBECCA DID, START WITH THE
SMALL ONES AND GET SOME SMALL VICTORIES.


AND SEE THAT MOUNTAIN OF DEBT START TO WHITTLE
DOWN.


AND WHEN YOU GET COMPLETELY DEBT FREE, IT
WILL BE A DAY OF REJOICING.


10 10 80.
10% TITHING, GET GOD ON YOUR SIDE: GIVE AND


IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU.
AND 10% FOR YOURSELF.


MAKE SURE YOU'RE PAYING YOURSELF.
YOU'RE IN BUSINESS FOR YOUR FUTURE.


PAY YOURSELF, AND THEN LIVE ON THE 80% AND
SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU.


WHEN TODD OPEN HEART SURGERY, HE WAS OUT OF
WORK FOR 10 MONTHS.


BUT EVEN WITHOUT TODD'S INCOME, HIS FAMILY
PAID ALL THEIR BILLS ON TIME AND NEVER RAN


OUT OF MONEY.
Reporter: CHAD AND KIM LIVED OFF THEIR


FARMS.
I BEGGED MY HUSBAND FOR A GOAT.


HE SAID YOU CAN HAVE A GOAT IF YOU DO SOMETHING
WITH IT.


WE DID LOTS OF THINGS.
WE MADE CHEESE AND ICE CREAM.


I LOVE THE OUTDOORS, SO I THANK GOD FOR
GIVING ME HIS NATURE TO WORK WITH.


Reporter: A FEW YEARS EARLIER, CHAD DEVELOPED
HEART DISEASE AND HAD TO HAVE OPEN HEART SURGERY.


HE WAS UNABLE TO WORK FOR FOUR MONTHS.
DESPITE THE CHALLENGES, CHAD AND KIM CONTINUED


TO TITHE AND CONTINUED TO WORK, SELLING THE
GOAT MILK.


IT SEEMED LIKE ANY TIME WE WERE IN REAL
NEED, SOMEONE WOULD CALL AND SAY, I NEED 10


BARS OF SOAP AND WE WOULD HAVE WHAT WE NEEDED.
Reporter: WHILE CHAD WAS LAID UP FROM SURGERY,


FRIENDS FROM CHURCH PUT THEIR MONEY TOGETHER
AND TOOK CARE OF THEIR BILLS AND BOUGHT THE


FAMILY GROCERIES.
WE HAD $1,000 IN VISA GIFT CARDS, AND ANOTHER


$500 IN FOOD CARDS FOR MONEY.
Reporter: WHEN THEY RAN OUT OF HAY TO FEED


THEIR ANIMALS, A NEIGHBOR HAPPENED TO CALL
AND SAY HE HAD SOME HAY.


I SAID, I CAN'T PAY YOU.
HE SAID YOU CAN ME WHEN YOU GET THE MONEY.


Reporter: THE BUSHY'S HAVE ADOPTED THREE
CHILDREN, AND THE OLDEST ONE IS IN COLLEGE


RIGHT NOW.
"ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS THE REASON THEY JOINED


"THE 700 CLUB."
I LOVE HOW THEY CARE FOR THE ORPHANS AND


FEED THEM AND CLOTHE THEM.
Reporter: AND THEIR 9 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER,


ELIZABETH, IS LEARNING TO GIVE, TOO.
IN FACT, SHE LOVES CBN SO MUCH, INSTEAD OF


SAVING HER MONEY FOR A PONY, SHE GIVES HER
$20 TO CBN.


I KEPT ON WATCHING CBN.
AND I FELT LIKE A BIG PAIN IN MY HEART TO


GIVE.
I TALKED TO MY MOM AND DAD, AND THEY SAID


YOU CAN GIVE.
I ACTUALLY STARTED GIVING JARS TO THE CBN.


IT BLESSES ME VERY MUCH TO SEE OUR DAUGHTER
GIVING, AND TO UNDERSTAND THE PRINCIPLES OF


OBEYING GOD'S WORD.
Reporter: THE BUSHYS UNDERSTAND YOU CANNOT


OUTGIVE GOD.
THAT'S WHY THEY INCREASED THEIR GIVING TO


CBN.
ONLY GOD KNOWS HOW MANY APPLES YOU CAN


GET FROM ONE SEED.
IF YOU GIVE TO CBN AND GOD, YOU WILL NEVER


SEE THE END OF THE BLESSING.
YOU SHOULD GIVE, BECAUSE IF YOU GIVE IT


WILL BLESS GOD.
Gordon: YOU SHOULD GIVE BECAUSE IT WILL


BLESS GOD, BUT IT WILL ALSO BLESS YOU.
IF YOU START UNDERSTANDING THE PRINCIPLES,


GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU, YOU PUT
THAT IN MOTION.


THESE ARE LAWS THAT GOD SET OUT FOR US.
YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE HIM.


WHEN YOU START GIVING, YOU START THAT PROS
PROCESS, AND IT WILL START HAPPENING TO YOU.


CBN PARTNERS, JUST LIKE CHAD AND KIM, WE LIKE
GIVING SO MUCH, WE WANT TO CHALLENGE OTHERS


TO GIVE.
FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, THEY'RE CHALLENGING


YOU $75,000.
WHAT THAT MEANS IS THEY'LL MATCH YOUR GIFT.


IF YOU CALL IN THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, THEY'LL
MATCH YOU, DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, UP TO $75,000.


SO $20 BECOMES $40.
AND $100 BECOMES $200, AND $1,000 BECOMES


$2,000.
LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING FOR THE PARTNERS


WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE TO ISSUE THIS CHALLENGE.
AND WE ASK YOU WOULD SPEAK TO THOSE WATCHING


NOW, ENCOURAGE THEM, LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU
HAVE THEIR FUTURE AND IT'S YOUR PLAN TO PROSPER


THEM, TO GIVE THEM A HOPE AND A FUTURE.
SO DO IT, LORD, SPEAK TO THEM, FOR WE ASK


IT IN JESUS' NAME.
AMEN.


YOU HEARD IT, $75,000, 30 MINUTES TO GO TO
MAKE IT.


WHAT WE NEED IS FOR YOU TO GO TO THE PHONE
AND CALL US AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO BECOME


A MEMBER OF "THE 700 CLUB."
THE NUMBER IS TOLL FREE, 1 800 759 0700, AND


JUST SAY, YEAH, I WANT TO BE A PART OF IT.
I WANT TO BE A PART OF EVERYTHING YOU'RE DOING


AROUND THE WORLD.
SO DO IT, CALL US.


TERRY?
Terry: AS VOLUNTEERS AS AN ORPHANAGE, MR.


AND MRS.CHEN WERE USED TO HELPING YOUNG
CHILDREN.


BUT WHEN THEIR BABY WAS BORN, THEY WERE THE
ONES THAT NEEDED HELP.


MR. AND MRS.CHEN MARRIED IN THEIR MID 20s,
AND IMMEDIATELY SIGNED UP TO VOLUNTEER AT


AN ORPHANAGE.
SO BY THE TIME MRS.CHEN GOT PREGNANT, THE


COUPLE CARED FOR A LOT OF BABIES AND FELT
PREPARED TO BE PARENTS.


WHAT THEY WEREN'T REPAIRED FOR WAS THEIR BABY'S
CLEFT LIP AND FACE.


I CRIED WHEN I SAW HER FACE.
I KNEW PEOPLE WERE MOCKED.


I COULDN'T IMAGINE MY OWN BABY BEING TREATED
LIKE THAT ALL HER LIFE.


Reporter: HER CLEFT LIP WAS SEVERE AND
KEPT HER FROM EATING AND DEVELOPING LIKE SHE


SHOULD.
SHE WAS SO SMALL.


SHE WAS ONLY 7.7POUNDS.
I TRIED TO FEED HER, BUT SHE ALWAYS CHOKED,


AND HER FACE TURNED RED AND PURPLE.
AND THEN SHE COULDN'T SLEEP BECAUSE SHE WAS


SO HUNGRY AND UNCOMFORTABLE.
EVERY TIME SHE CRIED, IT WAS LIKE MY HEART


WAS BEING CUT INTO 100 PIECES.
I WAS WORRIED MY DAUGHTER WOULD CHOKE TO


DEATH.
AND WHAT IF HE MALNUTRITION LED TO RETARDATION.


OUR DOCTOR THOUGHT THERE WAS NO WAY TO HELP
HER IN THE LONG RUN.


THEY SAID WE WOULD BE BETTER JUST GIVING HER
UP.


Terry: THE POOR NEWLYWEDS DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH
MONEY FOR SURGERY, BUT THEY DID HAVE FAITH.


I PRAYED TO THE LORD EVERY DAY.
I BELIEVE HE HAS THE PERFECT PLAN FOR MY BABY,


AND I ENTRUSTED MY BABY TO HIM.
Terry: NOT LONG AFTER PRAYING, MRS.CHEN


GOT A CALL WITH SOME VERY GOOD NEWS.
CBN HAD AGREED TO HELP PAY FOR SAYON'S SURGERY.


IT WAS A THREE HOUR PROCEDURE THAT COMPLETELY
TRANSFORMED HER FACE AND HER LIFE.


IT WAS LIKE ALL OF MY BURDENS WERE IMMEDIATELY
TAKEN AWAY.


I WAS RELEASED FROM ALL WORRIES ABOUT MY DAUGHTER'S
FUTURE.


I COULD NOT EVEN RECOGNIZE THAT THIS WAS MY
BABY.


IT IS INCREDIBLE.
SHE IS SO PRETTY.


WE VOLUNTEERED AT THE ORPHANAGE AND HELPED
THE OTHERS.


AND THEN WHEN WE NEEDED HELP, GOD STRETCHED
OUT HIS MERCIFUL HAND TO US, AND LED CBN TO


HELP US.
I WANT TO THANK CBN FOR ARRANGING THE BEST


HOSPITAL AND THE BEST DOCTOR FOR MY BABY,
SO THAT SHE COULD HAVE THIS SUCCESSFUL SURGERY


AND A MUCH BETTER LIFE.
Terry: YOU KNOW, SO OFTEN WHEN WE SEE A


CLEFT LIP, CLEFT PALLET NEED, WE THINK OF
THE SHAME, THE MOCKING THAT GOES ON, AND THE


DIFFICULTY OF HAVING PEOPLE SHARING AT YOU.
BUT FOR CHILDREN THAT ARE THIS SMALL AND HAVE


THIS SEVERE OF AN ISSUE, THEY CAN'T EVEN EAT.
THEY'RE CHOKING ON THEIR OWN FOOD.


YOU LITERALLY GAVE LIFE TO THIS CHILDREN.
IF YOU'RE A "THE 700 CLUB" MEMBER, YOU ARE


DOING THIS FOR CHILDREN ALL AROUND THE WORLD
AND WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.


IF YOU'RE NOT A "THE 700 CLUB" MEMBER, WHAT
A GREAT TIME TO MAKE A DECISION TO DO SOMETHING


TODAY.
WE TALKED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF GIVING,


AND NOT JUST FOR THE PERSON RECEIVING, BUT
FOR THE PERSON WHO IS GIVING AS WELL.


IT IS GOD'S PLAN.
GET IN THE PROGRAM OF ALL OF THAT AND SEE


HOW THE BLESSING WILL FALL UPON YOU.
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN GIVE.


RIGHT NOW ON YOUR SCREEN, YOU SEE THAT PHONE
NUMBER, 1 800 759 0700.


IF YOU CALL THAT NUMBER, YOU HAVE THESE OPTIONS
BEFORE YOU.


GENERAL "THE 700 CLUB" MEMBERSHIP, 65 CENTS
A DAY, $20 A MONTH.


MAYBE YOU'RE ALREADY A "THE 700 CLUB" MEMBER.
WHY DON'T YOU GO UP TO "THE 700 CLUB" GOLD.


A GIVE OF $40.
IF YOU'RE A GOLD MEMBER, TRY OUT THE THOUSAND


CLUB, $84 A MONTH, OR YOU MIGHT WANT TO GO
UP TO THE $2400 LEVEL AT $204, AND THEN THERE


IS THE FOUNDERS CLUB, AND THEN WE HAVE THE
CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE, THESE ARE FOLKS WHO GIVE


$10,000 OR MORE A YEAR.
ASK GOD WHAT YOU SHOULD DO BECAUSE YOU'RE


GOING TO BE RICHLY BLESSED WHEN YOU TOUCH
OUT AND HELP OTHERS.


AND WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A CHALLENGE, THAT
MEANS WHEN THEY CALL NOW, THE MONEY WILL BE


DOUBLED.
Gordon: WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO GIVE


US A CALL RIGHT NOW.
IN PARTS OF PERU, WATER IS STORED IN SISTINES


THAT ARE HARD TO REACH.
FOR ONE FAMILY, A TRIP TO GET WATER ALMOST


LED TO TRAGEDY.
Reporter: ZIMA IS ONLY 4 YEARS OLD, BUT


THAT DOESN'T STOP HER FROM HELPING HER MOM
AROUND THE HOUSE.


BUT THE FIRST TIME SHE WENT TO COLLECT WATER
ALMOST BECAME A TRAGEDY.


SHE LEANED OVER TO GET WATER AND FELL IN.
I HURT THE NEIGHBOR START TO SCREAM, ZIMA


FELL INTO THE WELL.
Reporter: SHE STRUGGLED TO STAY AFLOAT,


BUT BECAUSE SHE SWALLOWED SO MUCH WATER
BUT HER MOTHER PULLED HER OUT.


I SAID, LORD, NO SAVE MY DAUGHTER.
AND THEN I SAID, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, LORD.


Reporter: WHEN "OPERATION BLESSING" HEARD
OF THIS WATER, WE DECIDED TO DIG THEM A WELL.


IT PROVIDES FRESH DRINKING WATER FOR OVER
400 PEOPLE IN THE AREA.


THE BEST PART FOR ZIMA AND HER FAMILY, IT
IS COMPLETELY ENCLOSED.


WE HAVE CLEAN WATER EVERY DAY, AND WE DON'T
GET SICK.


MY FAMILY AND I ARE GRATEFUL TO "OPERATION
BLESSING" FOR THE WELL THEY BUILT.


Gordon: AND WE'RE GRATEFUL TO YOU.
IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE 700 CLUB," YOU'RE


A PART OF THAT.
A PORTION OF EVERY GIFT GOES INTO THE WORK


OF "OPERATION BLESSING."
ANOTHER PORTION GOES INTO THE CBN NATIONAL,


TO PREACH THE GOSPEL AROUND THE WORLD.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE PHONES.
Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.


IT IS GOOD TO STAY INFORMED AND WHAT IS GOING
ON IN THE WORLD.


BUT IF YOU WATCH THE NEWS, YOU'LL THINK THAT
AMERICA'S BEST DAYS ARE OVER.


BUT NOT IF YOU WATCH PAT ROBERTSON'S NEW C.D.
Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT.


GOD HAS A PLAN, AND THE BIBLE SAYS SO.
JEREMIAH 29: 11: "I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE


FOR YOU.
PLANS TO HELP YOU PROSPER, TO GIVE YOU HOPE


AND A FUTURE."
WE WANT TO GIVE YOU HOPE WITH PAT'S NEW TEACHING


CALLED "PLANS FOR AMERICA."
WE NEED YOUR HELP, AND WE'RE HELPING THE WORLD,


AND YOU ARE SEEING THESE INCREDIBLE STORIES,
BUT WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU.


WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A $75,000 CHALLENGE.
THAT MEANS EVERY PLEDGE WILL BE MATCHED DOLLAR


FOR DOLLAR.
DO WHAT YOU CAN TODAY.


IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
AND WE'LL SEND YOU "GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA."


Gordon: IN TODAY'S ECONOMY, YOU MIGHT THINK
TWICE ABOUT ASKING YOUR BOSS FOR A RAISE.


NOT MICAH MARTINEZ.
HE COULDN'T EVEN AFFORD TO HEAT HIS HOME FOR


THE WINTER, SO HE ASKED FOR A RAISE AND GOT
MUCH MORE THAN THAN HE EXPECTED.


Terry: MIKE AND TINA JUST MOVED TO A NEW
AREA AND THEY WERE STRUGGLING RAISING THEIR


TWO CHILDREN ON THEIR OWN.
WE ARE NEW PEOPLE TO THE AREA.


AND WE HAD TO JUGGLE FOOD AND BILLS AND CAR
AND HOUSE, AND JUST MAKING IT ALL WORK.


Terry: SO TO CUT CORNERS, THEY SKIMPED
ON FOOD AND LOWERED THE HOUSE TEMPERATURE


DURING THE WINTER.
I HAVE PICTURES OF EMMY SITTING ON THE


FLOOR IN THE HOUSE WITH A THICK, KNITTED SWEATER
WITH A HAT BECAUSE IT WAS COLD.


Terry: THEY WERE LIVING PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK
WITH NO END IN SIGHT.


WE JUST HAD TO LEARN.
Reporter: YEARS BEFORE MIKE AND ELLEN MET


WHILE BACKPACKING IN INDIA.
ELLEN WAS HINDU BEFORE SHE MET MIKE.


GOD WAS THERE, WORKING THROUGH CBN IN HER
LIFE AND MY LIFE.


GOD LED ME TO MY HUSBAND, WHO LED ME TO
THE LORD.


Reporter: MIKE REMEMBERS HIS MOTHER TAUGHT
HIM ABOUT GIVING, AND THE YOUNG COUPLE WAS


EAGER TO PUT THESE PRINCIPLES IN ACTION.
IT LOOKED LIKE THE SMALLEST TIME OF GIVING


FROM THE NATURAL PERSPECTIVE, BUT I BELIEVE
SPIRITUALLY, FROM GOD'S PERSPECTIVE, IT WAS


OUR GREATEST TIME OF GIVING.
WHEN WE GAVE OUT OF OUR LACK AND NOT OUR ABUNDANCE.


WITH STARTED REALLY TITHING, AND BEING
CONSISTENT IN OUR TITHING, KNOWING THAT GOD


WANTS THIS FROM US, YOU KNOW.
AND WE STARTED GIVING FAITHFULLY.


AND THEN THINGS STARTED MOVING.
Reporter: THE MARTINEZES SAW THEIR FAITH


WORKING.
SOMETIMES THROUGH PEOPLE THEY DIDN'T EVEN


KNOW.
IT WASN'T ALWAYS MONEY.


BUT IT WAS ALWAYS PROVISION, SOMEHOW TO GET
US THROUGH FINANCIALLY.


Reporter: THEN MIKE WAS OFFERED A NEW JOB,
FOR A COMPANY THAT MAKES AND SELLS HIGH PRECISION


BEARINGS.
AND HE SAID, SOME PEOPLE WOULD LOSE THEIR


JOB ASKING FOR A 15% RAISE.
THEN MY BOSS SAID, HERE'S WHAT WE'RE GOING


TO DO, WE'RE GOING TO PUT YOU ON A COMMISSION
BASED TO YOUR SALARY.


AND IT ENDED UP BECOMING A 25% RAISE.
PRETTY SOON AFTER THAT, WE MOVED TO A TWO


BEDROOM HOUSE, WHERE OUR CHILDREN COULD HAVE
THEIR OWN ROOM, AND WE COULD HAVE OUR OWN


ROOM.
AND WE HAD A BIG BACKYARD, WHERE THEY COULD


PLAY.
IT WAS SUCH A BLESSING, JUST TO BE ABLE TO


GIVE THEM THAT.
ALL OF IT CAME OUT OF ONE.


Reporter: THE MARTINEZES WANTED TO GIVE
BACK, AND THEY CHOSE "THE 700 CLUB."


GOD IS SAYING I WANT TO BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY.
HE IS SAYING I LOVE YOU.


IT IS ABOUT HOW MUCH ARE YOU GOING TO TRUST
HIM.


Gordon: HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM ISAIAH
1: "IF YOU WILL ONLY OBEY ME AND LET ME HELP


YOU, THEN YOU WILL HAVE PLENTY."
MICHAEL AND ELLEN, IT WAS HARD FOR THEM TO


GIVE.
THEY WERE LIVING IN VERY DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES.


BUT THEY GAVE, AND THEN THEY GAVE FAITHFULLY.
IT WASN'T JUST, I'M GOING TO DO THIS ONE TIME.


THEY GAVE FAITHFULLY.
AND THEN GOD GAVE HIM CREATIVE IDEAS THAT


ALLOWED HIM TO TURN AROUND A BUSINESS AND
HELP HIS EMPLOYER AND MAKE MORE MONEY.


AND HE GOT REWARDED FOR THAT.
THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU WILL ONLY OBEY


GOD AND LET HIM HELP YOU.
THEN THE BLESSINGS COME.


IF YOU WANT TO START GIVING, GIVE US A CALL.
1 800 759 0700.


JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE A PART OF IT.
I WANT TO BE A PART OF DRILLING WELLS.


I WANT TO BE A PART OF MEDICAL MISSIONS.
I WANT TO BE A PART OF PREACHING THE GOSPEL


AROUND THE WORLD.
I WANT TO BE A PART OF ALL OF IT.


HOW MUCH ARE WE ASKING FOR?
$20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A DAY, AND JUST SEE


WHAT GOD WILL DO IF YOU START GIVING FAITHFULLY.
CALL US, 1 800 759 0700.


LARRY AND LAURA WORKMAN HAD A MULTI MILLION
BUSINESS, UNTIL THE RECESSION HIT, AND THEY


FOUND THEMSELVES WITH MORE DEBT THAN THEY
HAD EVER IMAGINED.


$1.5MILLION WE OWED, AND THE LETTERS
KEPT COMING, AND THE THREATS.


THAT'S THE ONE THAT WOKE ME UP IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE NIGHT.


THEY WANT MORE MONEY THAN YOU EVEN POSSIBLY
COULD HAVE.


I REMEMBER WE WERE DRIVING IN THE CAR AND
JUST CRYING.


THERE IS NO WAY WE HAVE THIS MONEY.
Reporter: WHEN THE RECESSION HIT IN 2008,


LARRY AND LAURA WORKMAN WATCHED THEIR ROOFING
BUSINESS TAKE A DIVE.


RESULTING IN $1.5MILLION IN BACK TAXES.
NATIONAL SINGLE PLY HAD ONCE BEEN A MULTI


MILLION CORPORATION.
NOW THE ECONOMIC ELEVATOR THAT HAD TAKEN THE


BUSINESS UP WAS GOING DOWN.
WE WERE ALWAYS HAVING TO PUT MONEY INTO


THE COMPANY AND PUT MONEY INTO THE COMPANY.
WHEN YOU START RUNNING OUT OF MONEY, YOU HAVE


NO CUSHION.
I HAD NO CUSHION, AND IT MAKES YOU FEEL INSECURE.


Reporter: LARRY AND LAURA AGREED THEY WOULD
KEEP TITHING ON WHAT LITTLE THE MONEY DID


MAKE.
YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO DO IT.


IF I'M GOING TO TRUST HIM TO TAKE ME TO HEAVEN
WHEN I DIE, YOU'VE GOT TO TRUST HIM WITH THIS.


IT IS EASY TO GIVE WHEN TIMES ARE GOOD.
WHEN TIMES ARE TOUGH, YOU'VE GOT TO SUCK IT


UP AND DO IT.
Reporter: ONE PLACE THEY KEPT GIVING WAS


TO CBN.
LAURA SAYS BECAUSE GOD TOLD THEM TO.


I LIKE THE WAY THEY HELP OTHERS.
AND THEY GO TO POVERTY STRICKEN PLACES WHERE


THEY DON'T KNOW GOD, AND THEY PREACH THE GOSPEL.
Reporter: JUST LAST FALL THEIR CRISIS ENDED.


ONE OF LARRY'S BIGGEST COMPETITORS CHOSE TO
DOWN SIZE, GIVING LARRY THE OPPORTUNITY TO


BID ON CONTRACTS, MAKING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS
OF DOLLARS MORE.


PUTTING THE COMPANY BACK IN THE BLACK.
IT IS LIKE A BIG BURDEN WAS LIFTED OFF


YOUR SHOULDER.
IT WASN'T A SPRINKLE.


IT WAS LIKE A DOWNPOUR.
IT'S ALMOST OVERWHELMING.


Reporter: IN LESS THAN A YEAR, THE WORKMAN'S
PAID THEIR BACK TAXES AND OTHER DEBTS.


THEY ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO GIVE.
DO IT.


YOU MUST DO IT.
YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO DO IT.


GOD WILL HELP YOU TO BE FAITHFUL AND TRUE.
HE'LL HONOR THOSE WHO HONOR HIM.


YOU CANNOT AFFORD NOT TO TRUST GOD.
ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE DOWN LIKE THAT.


YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO TRUST GOD.
Gordon: TRUST HIM.


WHEN YOU TRUST HIM WITH YOUR FINANCES, YOU'RE
PUTTING YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR HEART IS.


PROVERBS 11: "IT IS POSSIBLE TO GIVE AWAY
AND BECOME RICHER.


IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO HOLD ON TIGHTLY AND
LOSE EVERYTHING.


YES, THE LIBERAL MAN SHALL BE RICH.
BY WATERING OTHERS, HE WATERS HIMSELF."


WHEN YOU DO THAT, WHEN YOU PUT THESE PRINCIPLES
INTO PRACTICE, AND DO IT ON A REGULAR BASIS,


THAT'S WHEN GOD COMES THROUGH.
AND HE DID FOR LARRY AND LAURA.


THEY FACED NOT JUST A MOUNTAIN, BUT AN EVEREST
OF DEBT, AND GOD GOT THEM THROUGH IT.


AND HE CAN DO IT FOR YOU IF YOU JUST TRUST
HIM.


IF YOU WANT TO START TRUSTING GOD WITH YOUR
FINANCES, GIVE US A CALL.


1 800 759 0700.
BE PART OF WHAT WE'RE DOING.


WE WANT TO SEE THE GOSPEL GO OUT TO EVERY
NATION, EVERY TRIBE, EVERY TONGUE.


WE HAVE 15 PRODUCTION CENTERS LOCATED AROUND
THE WORLD.


WE TRAIN LOCAL CHRISTIANS HOW TO PREACH THE
GOSPEL ON TELEVISION, IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE,


AND SHOW THEM HOW TO DO THE STORIES SO THAT
PEOPLE CAN SEE WHAT JESUS IS DOING IN THEIR


COUNTRY RIGHT NOW, HOW HE IS CHANGING LIVES.
AND THAT'S IT'S A SIMPLE FORMULA, BUT IT


WORKS.
AND WHEN PEOPLE SEE WHAT JESUS DOES FOR OTHERS,


THEY SAY I WANT THAT, TOO.
AND SO THEY PRAY WITH US, BY THE MILLIONS.


SO IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF IT, CALL US,
1 800 759 0700.


TERRY?
Terry: FOR ALBERTO, LIFE AS A SINGLE DAD


IN GUATEMALA WASN'T EASY.
HE HAD SIX CHILDREN AND VERY LITTLE MONEY.


BUT THEN HE LOST HIS JOB AND THINGS GOT EVEN
WORSE.


Reporter: ALBERTO BECAME A SINGLE PARENT
AFTER HIS WIFE ABANDONED THE FAMILY.


THINGS HAVE BEEN VERY BUSY FOR US SINCE
SHE LEFT BECAUSE I HAVE TO RAISE OUR SIX CHILDREN


ON MY OWN.
I WOULD WORRY ABOUT THEM.


I RUSHED HOME EACH DAY AFTER WORK.
I WAS VERY SAD EVERY TIME MY DAD LEFT FOR


HIS JOB.
Reporter: THEN ALBERTO LOST HIS JOB PROCESSING


SALT, AND THINGS GREW EVEN MORE CHALLENGING.
THIS IS WHERE THE FAMILY HAS BEEN FORCED TO


LIVE, IN A CHANTEY WITH A DIRT FLOOR, AND
WALLS MADE OF PLASTIC BAGSMENT.


WE WERE HUNGRY, BUT MY DAD DIDN'T HAVE
MONEY TO BUY FOOD.


Reporter: THE FIRST THING "OPERATION BLESSING"
DID WAS BUILD THE FAMILY A NEW, STURDY HOME,


ONE THAT WOULD PROTECT THEM FROM THE ELEMENTS.
I WOULD NEVER DREAM WE WOULD HAVE A HOUSE


LIKE THIS.
I AM SO THANKFUL TO GOD.


THANKS FOR OUR NEW HOUSE.
IT IS VERY NICE.


Reporter: WHEN WE LEARNED THAT ALBERTO
HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND ANOTHER JOB, WE


ASKED HIM ABOUT OTHER SKILLS AND DREAMS.
I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE MY OWN BICYCLE


REPAIR BUSINESS.
Reporter: SO "OPERATION BLESSING" GAVE


ALBERTO ALL OF THE TOOLS AND SUPPLIES HE NEEDED
TO OPEN A SMALL REPAIR BUSINESS RIGHT IN FRONT


OF HIS NEW HOME.
NOW HE CAN WORK AND TAKE CARE OF HIS CHILDREN


THROUGHOUT THE DAY.
THANKS TO "OPERATION BLESSING," I HAVE


RECEIVED SO MANY BLESSINGS FOR MY FAMILY.
NOW I CAN ENJOY MY LIFE WITH MY KIDS.


THANKS TO YOU.
THANK YOU!


Terry: YOU GAVE THIS MAN BACK HIS DIGNITY.
YOU GAVE HIM AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A LIVING


FOR HIS FAMILY, HOPE AND A FUTURE FOR HIS
CHILDREN, A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE.


THAT SHOULD MAKE YOU FEEL GREAT IF YOU'RE
A "THE 700 CLUB" MEMBER.


IF YOU'RE NOT A "THE 700 CLUB," IT SHOULD
MAKE YOU THINK, I WANT TO BE A PART OF THAT.


AND WE WANT TO WELCOME YOU INTO THAT RIGHT
NOW.


JOIN "THE 700 CLUB" TODAY RIGHT NOW.
LOOK AT THAT LITTLE FAMILY.


THERE THEY ARE, AND YOU'RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE
IN THEIR LIVES.


YOU CAN TOUCH LIVES LIKE THEIRS AROUND THE
WORLD.


JUST BY PICKING UP THE PHONE RIGHT NOW.
1 800 759 0700.


JUST SAY I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."
65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH, AND YOU'RE PART


OF THE ARMY REACHING OUT TO THE WORLD AND
REALLY MAKING A DIFFERENCE.


ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHEN THEY
GET UP AND MAKE A PHONE CALL.


WHEN YOU DO THAT, WILL YOU DO THAT USING PLEDGE
EXPRESS?


THAT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES ALL OF THE WORK.
YOU DON'T HAVE THE HASSLE OF REMEMBERING TO


SEND A CHECK EVERY MONTH OR HAVING ENVELOPES
AND STAMPS ON HAND.


AND IT SAVES US MONEY, SO OUR WAY OF SAYING
THANK YOU IS TO SEND YOU "POWER FOR LIFE"


C.D.s.
AND YOU WILL HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF KNOWING


YOU ARE TOUCHING AND BLESSING OTHERS.
Gordon: IN APRIL, A STRING OF TORNADOES


DAMAGED MORE THAN A DOZEN HOMES IN THE DALLAS,
FORT WORTH AREA.


WHEN MARIA'S HOME WAS CONDEMNED, SHE WAS GIVEN
48 HOURS TO GET HER STUFF AND GET OUT.


Reporter: MANY PEOPLE LOST EVERYTHING WHEN
THE TORNADOES HIT THE DALLAS FORT WORTH AREA.


MARIA WAS IN DANGER OF LOSING EVERYTHING SHE
OWNED.


YOU HAVE UNTIL SATURDAY.
YOU HAVE, LIKE, TWO DAYS TO MOVE OUT.


Reporter: MARIA'S BUILDING WAS CONDEMNED,
AND SHE WAS GIVEN 48 HOURS TO MOVE.


MARIA LIVES ALONE AND KNEW THERE WAS NO WAY
SHE COULD MOVE HER FURNITURE AND HER BELONGINGS


BY HERSELF.
I'M REALLY NOT KNOWING WHAT I'M GOING TO


DO, BUT I'M JUST TRYING TO STAY POSITIVE BECAUSE
I REMEMBER GOD SAYING I'M WITH YOU.


Reporter: HELP WAS ON THE WAY.
ALL OF THIS GROUP OF PEOPLE SHOWED UP,


AND I'M, LIKE, WOW!
I COULDN'T BELIEVE 10, 15 PEOPLE SHOWED UP.


EVERYBODY KNEW WHAT TO DO.
EVERYBODY WAS HELPFUL.


WE HEARD ABOUT MARIA'S DEADLINE.
WE KNEW THERE WERE A LOT OF LOGISTICS THAT


WERE GOING TO BE INVOLVED.
SO WE SENT ABOUT A DOZEN PEOPLE TO PACK UP


HER BELONGINGS, AND WE SENT A CONSTRUCTION
WORKER DOWN TO THE U HAUL PLACE TO GET A TRUCK.


Reporter: MARIA FOUND A PLACE TO LIVE WITH
A RELATIVE.


AND WITH THE HELP OF "OPERATION BLESSING,"
SHE COULD PUT HER BELONGINGS IN STORAGE.


WHEN YOU HAVE TWO HANDS, YOU CAN ONLY DO
SO MUCH.


BUT WHEN YOU HAVE TWO HANDS AND FOUR HANDS
AND LOTS OF HANDS, YOU CAN DO LOTS OF THINGS.


ROW WITH THE ELECTRICITY OUT BECAUSE OF THE
TORNADO, THE FINAL PACKING WAS DONE BY BATTERY


OPERATED LIGHTS.
THE LAST BOXES WERE PACKED, AND THE ROOM WAS


EMPTY.
WITH "OPERATION BLESSING"'S HOPE, MARIA MET


HER DEADLINE WITH TIME TO SPARE.
TO HAVE YOU ALL HERE, "OPERATION BLESSING,"


IT IS LIKE A REAFFIRMATION OF GOD SAYING I'M
WITH YOU.


Gordon: A REAFFIRMATION THAT GOD IS WITH
YOU.


WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
FOR PEOPLE IN NEEDS.


WHETHER IT IS PROVIDING THEM A WAY TO EARN
MONEY ON THEIR OWN, OR JUST PROVIDING THEM


HELPING HANDS TO HELP THEM MOVE.
WE WANT TO DO THAT.


AND WE'RE THERE IN YOUR NAME WHEN YOU JOIN
"THE 700 CLUB."


IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, NOW IS THE TIME TO
DO IT.


WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A $75,000 CHALLENGE.
IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL, WE'VE GOT SOME GREAT


NEWS.
SOME PARTNERS ARE SAYING $75,000 ISN'T ENOUGH.


THEY WANT TO TAKE IT UP TO $125,000 TO THE
END THE HOUR.


LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING ON THIS, WE ASK
FOR MULTIPLICATION.


WE ASK YOU WOULD OPEN WINDOWS IN HEAVEN AND
POUR OUT BLESSINGS PEOPLE CANNOT CONTAIN.


AS THEY SEEK YOU AND SEEK TO BE OBEDIENT TO
YOU, BLESS THEM, ENCOURAGE THEM.


FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS' NAME.
AMEN.


YOU HEARD IT, $125,000 WITH JUST 17 MINUTES
AND 40 SECONDS TO GO.


SO GO TO THE PHONE.
BE PART OF IT.


BE PART OF EVERYTHING WE'RE DOING AROUND THE
WORLD.


CALL US, 1 800 759 0700.
LET'S CHECK IN WITH KRISTI WATTS.


Kristi: THANK YOU, GORDON.
HISTORY BOOKS CAN TELL YOU ALL ABOUT AMERICA'S


PAST.
BUT HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT


THE COUNTRY'S FUTURE.
IT


IS ALL HERE IN PAT ROBERTSON'S D.V.D. CALLED
"GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA."


Kristi: WE ALL KNOW THAT THE ELECTION IS,
I DON'T KNOW, CLOSE TO 40 DAYS AWAY.


AND NOW IS THE TIME TO PRAY.
IF YOU'RE THINKING, HOW SHOULD I PRAY FOR


OUR COUNTRY?
HOW CAN I PRAY FOR AMERICA?


WELL, PAT'S GO TO SHOW YOU IN "GOD'S PLAN
FOR AMERICA, HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE DAYS AHEAD."


THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN YOU BECOME A
"THE 700 CLUB" PARTNER.


WE'RE ASKING YOU TO CALL IN RIGHT NOW, 1 800
759 0700.


WE'VE GOT ABOUT 16 MINUTES LEFT ON THIS CHALLENGE.
I ALMOST FORGOT ABOUT THIS: DON'T YOU LOVE


A GOOD DEAL?
I DO.


MAYBE YOU'RE A "THE 700 CLUB" PARTNER AND
SAY I WANT TO TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL, "THE


700 CLUB" GOLD.
YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THAT HAPPENS?


WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU THREE D.V.D.s.
YOU CAN KEEP ONE FOR YOURSELF AND GIVE TWO


OTHERS AWAY TO MAYBE NEIGHBORS OR FAMILY MEMBERS.
THE SAME WITH THE THOUSAND CLUB MEMBER, WE


GIVE YOU FIVE D.V.D.s.
TAKE ONE FOR YOURSELF AND GIVE THE OTHER FOUR


AWAY SO WE CAN COLLECTIVELY PRAY FOR OUR NATION.
WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A CHALLENGE, SO EVERY


DOLLAR IS AUTOMATICALLY DOUBLED.
SO WE NEED YOU TO CALL IN NOW.


Gordon: THEIR HOUSE IS PAID OFF, AND THEY'RE
COMPLETELY DEBT FREE, AND THEY SAY IT IS ALL


BECAUSE OF A DECISION THEY MADE WHEN THEY
FIRST GOT MARRIED.


Reporter: GARY AND CAROL CROWE LIVE IN
THE OZARK MOUNTAINS OF ARKANSAS.


IT IS ONE OF THE NEATEST COMMUNITIES WE
HAVE EVER LIVED IN.


Reporter: GARY AND CAROL ARE CBN PARTNERS.
CBN'S MEDICAL MISSIONS CONVINCED THEM TO MAKE


THEIR FIRST PLEDGE.
THE SURGERIES THEY DO FOR CATARACTS AND


FOR CHILDREN BORN WITH CLEFT PALLETS ALL
OF THAT IS JUST WONDERFUL, TO SEE HOW GOD


USES THE MONEY WE SEND.
Reporter: AND THE CROWES HAVE CONTINUED


TO GIVE, EVEN DURING TOUGH ECONOMIC TIMES,
BECAUSE OVER A LIFETIME, THEY'VE SEEN GOD


TAKE CARE OF THEIR FINANCES.
LIKE THE TIME GARY WAS HIRED AS A STOCK CLERK.


IN JUST SIX YEARS, HE WENT FROM CLERK TO GENERAL
MANAGER OF TWO MANUFACTURING FACILITIES.


I CAN NEVER REMEMBER A TIME WHEN I WAS
UNEMPLOYED FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME.


THERE WAS ALWAYS PROVISION.
GOD WAS ALWAYS THERE AND PROVIDED FOR US.


Reporter: AFTER 13 YEARS, GARY LEFT MANUFACTURING
AND BOUGHT A PICTURE FRAMING BUSINESS.


THEY RAN THEIR SUCCESSFUL COMPANY AND SOLD
IT FOR A PROFIT.


I BELIEVE WE HAVE EXPERIENCED GOD'S BLESSING
ON OUR LIFE THROUGH THE YEARS BECAUSE OF THE


FACT WE GAVE BACK TO HIM WHAT WAS RIGHTFULLY
HIS.


Reporter: GARY WORKS FULL TIME AS AN ASSISTANT
PASTOR, AND CAROL WORKS PART TIME IN A CARD


SHOP.
NOT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO, BUT BECAUSE THEY


ENJOY IT.
GOD SAYS PROVE ME, AND SEE IF I WON'T OPEN


THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN AND POUR OUT BLESSINGS
UPON YOU THAT YOU CANNOT CONTAIN.


AND WE HAVE PROVEN THAT TRUE.
AND WE JUST FEEL THAT YOU CAN'T, IN ANY WAY,


OUTGIVE GOD.
Gordon: YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE GOD.


AND THE WORD IS THAT THE MEASURE YOU USE IS
HOW ITS MEASURED BACK TO YOU.


AND THAT, YOU JUST SAW THE RESULTS OF A LIFETIME
OF GIVING, WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT WONDERFUL


COUPLE.
MAKE IT A PRACTICE, THAT IT JUST BECOMES PART


OF YOUR LIFE, AND SEE WHAT GOD WILL DO FOR
YOU.


CALL US AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE PART OF
IT.


I WANT TO BE PART OF EVERYTHING.
I WANT TO SEE THE GOSPEL GO AROUND THE WORLD.


I WANT TO SEE ORPHANS HELPED, AND I WANT TO
SEE WELLS DRILLED SO PEOPLE CAN HAVE FRESH


DRINKING WATER.
AND I WANT TO SEE CLEFT PALLETS HELPED.


IF THAT'S YOU, CALL US, 1 800 759 0700.
Terry: I'M GLAD YOU MENTIONED ORPHANS,


BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A LOOK AT A NATION
WITH A BIG PROBLEM.


IT IS KENYA.
THEY HAVE MORE THAN A MILLION ORPHANS.


EVERY DAY THOUSANDS OF THESE CHILDREN ROAM
THE STREETS, THEY'RE HOMELESS AND BEGGING


FOR HELP.
Reporter: WHEN NELSON'S PARENTS DIED, HE


WAS FORCED TO LIVE ON THE STREETS AND BEG
FOR FOOD.


SOMETIMES I HAD NO CLOTHES TO WEAR.
I JUST WALKED NAKED IN THE STREET.


AT NIGHT I GOT SO HUNGRY, I WOULD KNOCK ON
PEOPLE'S DOORS AND BEG THEM TO FEED ME SOMETHING.


Reporter: NELSON WAS STARVING, BUT BECAUSE
OF HIS STRANGE BEHAVIOR, PEOPLE IN THE VILLAGE


ACCUSED HIM OF BEING A WITCH.
I REALLY DIDN'T LIKE THE WAY PEOPLE TREATED


ME.
IT MADE ME SAD.


Reporter: THEN ONE DAY HE HEARD A PASTOR
PREACHING ON A STREET CORNER.


HE BEGGED HIM FOR SOMETHING TO EAT.
THE PASTOR TOOK HIM TO A CHILDREN'S HOME,


SUPPORTED BY "ORPHANS' PROMISE." HERE NELSON
FOUND A HOME.


I HAVE EVERYTHING I NEED, FOOD TO EAT,
A PLACE TO SLEEP, AND EVEN CLOTHES TO WEAR.


Reporter: NELSON IS STUDYING HARD IN SCHOOL.
AND IN HIS SPARE TIME, HE LIKES TO READ THE


BIBLE.
THE CHILDREN HERE ARE HAPPY AND WELL CARED


FOR.
MOST OF THEM WERE FOUND LIVING IN THE STREETS,


PRACTICALLY STARVING.
SOME OF THEM MIGHT NOT EVEN BE ALIVE TODAY


IF NOT FOR THE HELP OF "ORPHANS' PROMISE."
BUT ALL OF THE KIDS WE TALKED TO SAID AT NIGHT,


WHEN THEY PRAY, THEY THANK GOD FOR THE PEOPLE
THAT HELP SUPPORT THEM.


NOW MY LIFE IS VERY GOOD.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME.


I PRAY THAT GOD WILL BLESS YOU.
Terry: WHEN NELSON MILES, THE SUN COMES


OUT.
AND NELSON IS SMILING BECAUSE YOU WERE THERE


FOR HIM AT A POINT OF DESPERATE NEED.
CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING A YOUNG CHILD AND NOT


BELONGING TO ANYONE, NOT HAVING FOOD ON THE
TABLE, NOT HAVING A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE?


NOW HE HAS ALL OF THAT, AND HE IS BEING EDUCATED
AND TOLD ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE HAS A FATHER


WHO LOVES HIM, WHO IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE WITH
HIM.


THANK YOU FOR MAKING THAT HAPPEN.
THAT'S WHY WE ASK YOU TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."


WILL YOU GO TO YOUR PHONE RIGHT NOW?
OUR NUMBER IS TOLL FREE.


1 800 759 0700.
JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE


IN THE LIVES OF PEOPLE IN NEED AROUND THE
WORLD.


TODAY I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."
GORDON?


Gordon: AFTER HIS SISTER DIED, ALMA ADOPTED
HER NIECE AND NEPHEW, EVEN THOUGH SHE COULD


BARELY AFFORD TO FEED THEM.
WHEN "OPERATION BLESSING" HEARD ABOUT ALMA'S


GENEROSITY, WE GAVE HER FAMILY SOME MUCH NEEDED
HELP.


Reporter: ERIC AND HIS SISTER NEEDED A
PLACE TO STAY AFTER THEIR MOTHER WAS KILLED


BY A STRAY BULLET.
SO THEIR AUNT ALMA DECIDED TO TAKE THEM IN.


IF I HAD BEEN THE ONE WHO HAD DIED, I'M
SURE MY SISTER WOULD HAVE TAKEN IN MY CHILDREN.


Reporter: BUT TIMES HAVE BEEN TOUGH FOR
ALMA.


SHE IS ALSO A SINGLE MOTHER, RAISING HER TWO
CHILDREN.


HER GREATEST CHALLENGE WAS TO MAKE ENOUGH
MONEY TO PROVIDE FOOD FOR EVERYONE.


SOMETIMES I ONLY HAD A LITTLE JUICE OR
A PIECE OF BREAD FOR THEM TO TAKE TO SCHOOL.


GOD KNOWS HOW I TRIED MY BEST TO GIVE THEM
EVERYTHING I COULD.


ALTHOUGH IT HAS BEEN HARD, WE HAVE BECOME
A BIG FAMILY.


Reporter: WHEN "OPERATION BLESSING" LEARNED
WHAT ALMA WAS DOING FOR ERIC AND HIS SISTER,


WE SET UP A PLAN TO HELP.
FIRST WE ENROLLED HER IN CLASSES TAUGHT BY


"OPERATION BLESSING," TO TRAIN HER HOW TO
SEW AND RUN A SMALL BUSINESS.


THEN WE SURPRISED HER AND GAVE HER A NEW SEWING
MACHINE.


WITH THE MACHINE AND A LITTLE START UP CAPITAL,
ALMA IS ALREADY MAKING MONEY.


NOW THAT I HAVE A NEW MACHINE, I MAKE THE
CLOTHING AND I SELL THEM IN THE COMMUNITY.


Reporter: ALMA'S CLOTHES HAVE BEEN IN HIGH
DEMAND AT THE STORES WHERE SHE SELLS THEM,


AND ORDERS HAVE BEEN POURING IN.
MEANWHILE, FOR ERIC AND HIS SISTER, LIFE IS


MUCH BETTER.
ALMA IS ABLE TO PROVIDE FOOD FOR THEM AND


HOPE FOR THE FUTURE.
THANK YOU, "OPERATION BLESSING."


Gordon: IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE 700
CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF BLESSING THAT FAMILY.


IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, CALL US.
WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A $125,000 CHALLENGE.


WE HAVE $21,000 TO GO.
SO CALL US, 1 800 759 0700.


LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE PHONES.
Wendy: GORDON, IF YOU'RE TIRED OF ALL OF


THE DOOM AND GLOOM IN THE HEADLINES TODAY,
AND WHO ISN'T, WE HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS FOR


YOU ABOUT AMERICA'S FUTURE.
IT IS ALL HERE IN PAT ROBERTSON'S LATEST D.V.D.


TEACHING CALLED "GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA."
HERE IS WHAT PEOPLE ARE ALREADY SAYING ABOUT


IT.
I WAS JUST WATCHING PAT'S TEACHING ON GOD'S


PLAN FOR AMERICA.
AND I WAS VERY ENCOURAGED.


I THINK PAT'S TEACHING IS A BREATH OF FRESH
AIR.


THERE IS SO MUCH NEGATIVE ON THE TV, AND IT
IS GOOD TO KNOW THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH NEGATIVITY,


WE HAVE A COVENANT.
AND THERE IS A WAY FOR US TO RENEW THAT COVENANT


IF WE THINK WE HAVE GONE TOO FAR.
IT IS POSITIVE NEWS FOR TODAY.


IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR ANYBODY WHO IS DISCOURAGED
ABOUT THE STATE OF OUR COUNTRY.


IT IS VERY GOOD NEWS.
Wendy: YOU KNOW WHAT?


GOD KEEPS HIS PROMISES.
AND HE HASN'T FORGOTTEN THAT COVENANT HE MADE


WITH OUR FOREFATHERS, WHEN THEY DEDICATED
THIS GREAT LAND TO JESUS CHRIST.


IT SEEMS LIKE THE WORLD IS GOING CRAZY, BUT
GOD REMEMBERS AND HE IS FAITHFUL.


WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU WITH GOD'S PLAN FOR
AMERICA.


GOD HAS A PLAN.
HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU, FOR ME, FOR ISRAEL,


AND FOR AMERICA.
WE WANT YOU TO GET EXCITED ABOUT IT.


GOD HAS A PLAN FOR US.
SO WE WANT YOU TO HAVE IT RIGHT NOW WHEN YOU


JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."
JUST 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH, TO CHANGE


THE WORLD, AND IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE, ALSO.
WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIG CHALLENGE.


$125,000, WITH JUST SIX AND A HALF MINUTES
LEFT ON THE CLOCK.


THAT MEANS IF YOU GO TO YOUR PHONES RIGHT
NOW, EVERY DOLLAR YOU PLEDGE WILL BE MATCHED


DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.
IF YOU'RE ALREADY A MEMBER, RIGHT NOT TAKE


IT UP A NOTCH TO $40, THE GOLD LEVEL, AND
IF YOU DO, WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU THREE D.V.D.s.


AND MAYBE YOU CAN DO MORE, $84 A MONTH, OUR
THOUSAND CLUB MEMBER, AND WE'RE GOING TO GIVE


YOU FIVE.
MAYBE YOU CAN GIVE THEM AWAY FOR CHRISTMAS


GIFTS.
GO TO THE PHONES RIGHT NOW.


TERRY?
Terry: IN HER SMALL LAND, IN THAILAND,


MRS.SHAW AS THE MOTHER GOD HAS BLESSED.
BUT WHEN WE MET HER, SHE WAS A MOTHER OF TWO


CHILDREN AND NO HOME.
Reporter: WHEN CBN THAILAND SAW HER, THIS


IS ALL SHE HAD LEFT.
A TYPHOON HAD DESTROYED EVERYTHING.


I WAS VERY CONCERNED, ESPECIALLY FOR MY
CHILDREN.


Reporter: SHE IS A WIDOW, RAISING HER CHILDREN
ALONE.


HER OLDEST DAUGHTER FEELS THE WEIGHT OF THE
SITUATION.


I FEEL SO SORRY FOR MY MOTHER AND MY LITTLE
BROTHER.


Reporter: AFTER THE TYPHOON, THE TIE GOVERNMENT
GAVE HER SOME MATERIALS TO REBUILD.


BUT SHE DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY TO HAVE SOMEBODY
TO DO THE WORK.


SO SHE BEGGED A RELATIVE TO TAKE THEM IN.
I KNEW WE COULD ONLY STAY HERE A SHORT


TIME.
I DIDN'T WANT TO BE A BURDEN.


I COULD ONLY PRAY FOR HELP.
Reporter: SO CBN HIRED A CREW TO HELP BUILD


HER HOUSE.
MRS.SIA'S NEIGHBORS WERE ALSO HAPPY SHE


HAD BEEN GIVEN A NEW HOUSE.
ONLY A KIND AND POWERFUL GOD CAN MAKE SOMETHING


LIKE THIS HAPPEN.
NOW PEOPLE CALL ME THE MOTHER WHOM GOD HAS


BLESSED.
THIS IS A VERY GOOD HOUSE, A STRONGER HOUSE.


MY MOTHER IS VERY HAPPY.
I WILL REMEMBER THIS FOR THE REST OF MY


LIFE.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU EVEN MORE THAN YOU BLESSED


ME.
Terry: THANK YOU.


THANK YOU.
THANK YOU.


FOR CARING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE AND SAYING,
I AM GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.


THAT'S WHAT WE'RE ASKING PEOPLE DO TODAY,
TO STAND UP AND SAY, LET ME BE THE ONE.


LET ME BE THE ONE WHO GOES TO THE PHONE AND
WHO SAYS YES, AND WHO TOUCHES LIVES, AND WHO


IS BRINGING HOPE AND HELP TO PEOPLE AROUND
THE WORLD.


OUR NUMBER IS TOLL FREE.

I WANT TO TAKE YOU TO INDONESIA, TO MEET A


COUPLE WHO'S CHILD WAS DYING.
HERE IS A LOOK AT HOW PEOPLE LIKE YOU HELPED


SAVE HIS LIFE.
Reporter: LITTLE DION STARTED GETTING SICK


WHEN HE WAS A BABY, AND HIS PARENTS DIDN'T
KNOW WHY.


WELL, WE TOOK HIM TO A DOCTOR IN THE CITY
TWO DIFFERENT TIMES, BUT HE COULDN'T DIAGNOSE


WHAT WAS WRONG WITH HIM.
OUR HEARTS WERE BROKEN.


WE WERE SAD TO SEE OUR SON GROWING WEAKER
EACH DAY.


Reporter: THAT'S WHEN THE FAMILY LEARNED
ABOUT A FREE "OPERATION BLESSING" CLINIC.


THIS IS A PHOTO OF DION WHEN THEY FIRST EXAMINED
HIM AND DIAGNOSED HIM WITH BRONCHITIS AND


SEVERE MALNUTRITION.
THE BONES IN HIS HANDS AND LEGS WERE VISIBLE.


HE WAS SO WEAK, HE COULDN'T STAND UP.
Reporter: "OPERATION BLESSING" IMMEDIATELY


GAVE DION AN ANTIBIOTIC AND SPECIAL FORMULA
TO HELP HIM GAIN WEIGHT.


WHEN WE CAME TO A FOLLOWUP VISIT TO HIS HOME,
WE DISCOVERED WHY THE FAMILY MEMBERS HAD BEEN


SICK.
FILTHY MATTRESSES AND NO VENTILATION FOR A


COOKING STOVE IN HIS HOME.
WE GAVE THEM NEW MATTRESSES AND PAINTED AND


CLEANED HIS HOUSE, AND BUILT A PLATFORM FOR
AN OUTDOOR KITCHEN.


I THANK YOU WITH ALL OF MY HEART.
Gordon: AND WE THANK YOU.


IF YOU'RE PART OF "OPERATION BLESSING," YOU'RE
PART OF THAT.


WE'RE COUNTING DOWN TO VICTORY ON A $125,000

COUNTRY.

TAKE A LOOK.
WHAT WE'RE GETTING FROM OUR NATION'S LEADERS


IS DOOM AND GLOOM, BUT PAT'S TEACHING ON GOD'S
