Reporter: JULIAN WORKS

AT A CEILING FAN COMPANY,

BUT WHEN HE IS HOME, HE IS A

HANDS-ON DAD.

AND ROZ IS A STAY-AT-HOME

MOM.

BOTH LOVE "THE 700 CLUB."

THE "THE 700 CLUB"

GRABBED MY ATTENTION BECAUSE

I COULD GET A LOT OF

INFORMATION IN ONE HOUR WITH

TWO SMALL CHILDREN.

Reporter: IT WAS ROZ

WHO INITIALLY SUGGESTED THEY

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WHAT PROMPTED US TO BE

GIVERS TO "THE 700 CLUB" WAS

JUST THE DIFFERENT AREAS OF

IMPACT THAT THE "THE 700

CLUB" HAS AROUND THE WORLD.

THEY JUST REALLY TOUCHED OUR

HEART.

THEY'RE DOING GREAT

WORK.

GOD IS USING THE LITTLE BIT

I CAN GIVE TO HELP OTHERS

AROUND THE WORLD.

Reporter: BUT A FEW

YEARS AGO, THE MARTINS

STRUGGLED WITH GIVING AWAY

MONEY.

HAY HAD ACCUMULATED NEARLY

$40,000 IN DEBT.

THEN THEY TOOK A CLASS ON

FINANCES.

IT CAME TO A POINT WHERE

YOU START LOOKING AT STUDENT

LOANS AND LOOKING AT YOUR

CAR NOTE.

AND WE JUST STARTED FOCUSING

ON PAYING THOSE THINGS OFF.

IF YOU PAY THE MINIMUM

BALANCE, YOU'RE GOING TO BE

THERE A LONG TIME.

WE STARTED OFF BY PAYING

OUR SMALLEST DEBT FIRST.

AND THEN WE WOULD TAKE THE

PAYMENT AND PUT IT ON THE

NEXT SMALLEST DEBT.

UNTIL WE GOT UP TO OUR

LARGEST DEBT, AND WE WOULD

JUST CONTINUE TO ADD THE

DIFFERENT PAYMENTS ON TO

THAT, SO THAT WE WOULD

EVENTUALLY BE DEBT-FREE

OUTSIDE OF OUR HOME.

Reporter: THEN THEY

WERE ABLE TO AFFORD A NEW

HOME, MUCH BIGGER THAN THE

ONE THEY WERE IN BEFORE THE

BOYS WERE BORN.

GOD IS ABLE TO TAKE THAT

90% AND STRETCH IT FURTHER

THAN YOU WILL EVER IMAGINE.

WHEN THE LORD SEES HOW

YOU VALUE YOUR MONEY, I

THINK HE KNOWS WHERE YOUR

HEART IS.

THAT'S ONE AREA THAT THE

LORD WILL HONOR YOU IF YOU

HONOR HIM.
