The 700 Club - September 26, 2012

Living in an impoverished Gypsy family, five-month-old Kristina was in constant pain from a severe skin disorder. See how you helped her and others around the world. Read Transcript


Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

PARENTS IN NEW YORK CITY ARE

PROTESTING A CONTROVERSIAL

BIRTH CONTROL PROGRAM IN THE

PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

THE CITY IS GIVING THE

SO-CALLED MORNING-AFTER PILL

TO GIRLS AS YOUNG AS 14.

Terry: THE DRUG IS

SUPPOSED TO PREVENT

PREGNANCY AFTER THE GIRL HAS

ALREADY HAD SEX, BUT SOME

ARGUE IT CAN ALSO CAUSE

ABORTIONS.

PAUL STRAND HAS THAT STORY

FROM NEW YORK.

Reporter: SOME NEW YORK

PARENTS ARE FURIOUS ABOUT

THE CITY OFFERING STUDENTS

PLAN "B."

IT IS ADDING TO THE GREEN

LIGHT THAT WE'RE GIVING TO

KIDS FOR RISKY BEHAVIOR.

Reporter: CHILD

PSYCHIATRISTS LIKES DR.

DR. MARION, SAYS THE SCHOOLS

TRY TO SCARE CHILDREN ABOUT

THE HARM OF ONE CIGARETTE,

BUT NOT ABOUT PREGNANCY.

YOU CAN STILL GET HERPES,

LIFE-LONG, AND OTHER

H.T.D.s, AND THESE CAN ALL

OCCUR AS A RESULT OF ONE

POOR DECISION.

Reporter: SOME 7,000

GIRLS GOT

PREGNANT LAST YEAR.

AND THEY SAY THIS WILL LEAD

TO MORE RISKY BEHAVIOR.

YOU END UP WITH MORE

SEXUAL BEHAVIOR AND AN

INCREASE IN S.T.D.s.

Reporter: THESE PARENTS

AND THEIR ALLIES AGREE WITH

THE CITY'S POINT THAT ONLY

1% TO 2% OF THE CHILDREN'S

PARENTS HAVE OPTED THEIR

CHILDREN OUT.

YOU CANNOT SEND A CHILD

ON A CLASS TRIP WITHOUT THE

PARENT OPTING IN AND SIGNING

A CONSENT FORM.

IF THEY CAN REACH THE

PARENTS ABOUT CLASS TRIPS,

WHY CAN'T THEY REACH THE

PARENTS ABOUT THIS.

WHAT WE'RE FINDING HERE

IS GOVERNMENT TRYING TO U

USERP THE CONTROL OF THE

STUDENTS.

THIS IS A FURTHER

ENDORSEMENT OF THE

PHILOSOPHY THAT KIDS KNOW

BEST.

WE'RE GOING TO LEAVE IT UP

TO THEM.

THEY THINK AS LONG AS

THEY CAN KEEP THE BABIES

FROM BEING BORN, EVERYTHING

IS FINE.

WE RATHER HELP THE KIDS

BEHAVE IN A MORE RESPONSIBLE

WAY.

Reporter: THERE IT IS,

THE IRONY OF THE CITY THAT

IS GOING TO TELL KIDS CAN'T

HAVE LARGE SODAS, BUT THEY

CAN HAVE THE KIND OF SEX

LIFE THAT MOST PARENTS WOULD

DISAPPROVE OF IF THEY KNEW.

Gordon: IT IS IRONIC

THAT YOU CAN'T HAVE A BIG

GULP, BUT YOU CAN HAVE AN

ABORTION PILL.

IT DOESN'T MAKE MUCH SENSE.

PARTICULARLY AT AGE 14.

THAT WOULD BE CALLED

STATUTORY RAPE, AND FOR THAT

TO GO UNNOTICED AND NO

PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT IN THAT

DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE AT

ALL.

THE MORNING-AFTER PILL MADE

HEADLINES IN A RELIGIOUS

CASE.

LEE?

Lee: THE ILLINOIS COURT

OF APPEALS HAS RULED THAT

THE STATE CANNOT REQUIRE

PHARMACISTS TO SELL THE PLAN

"B" DRUG IF IT VIOLATES

THEIR BELIEFS.

THEY VOTED THAT THEY CAN

REFUSE TO SELL CONTRACEPTION

PILLS, LIKE THE

MORNING-AFTER PILL.

PILL.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE, REPRESENTING

TWO IN THEIR LAWSUIT AGAINST

THE STATE OF ILLINOIS,

ARGUED THAT THE MANDATE WAS

A VIOLATION OF THEIR

RELIGIOUS RIGHTS, AND THE

STATE AGREED.

THEY RULED THAT THE RIGHT OF

CONSCIOUS ACT PROTECTS THE

PHARMACISTS.

STUDENTS GATHERED AT THE

ANNUAL SEA ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

IT STARTED MORE THAN 20

YEARS AGO IN BURLINGTON,

TEXAS.

STUDENTS FROM MIDDLE SCHOOLS

AND HIGH SCHOOL, AND

COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES,

SHOULDER UP EARLY TO PRAY

FOR THEIR LEADERS, THEIR

SCHOOLS, AND FAMILIES.

THIS YEAR'S TEAM "AWAKEN."

STUDENTS ADD GOD TO BRING

MORAL AND SPIRITUAL

AWAKENING FOR THEIR CAMPUSES

AND COLLEGES.

I WANTED TO COME AND PRAY

FOR OUR SCHOOL BECAUSE A LOT

OF PEOPLE ARE CONFUSED IN

OUR SCHOOL.

THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY

WANT.

I SEE IT EVERY DAY IN THEIR

EYES.

YOU GET TO TALK TO JESUS

CHRIST PERSONALLY, AND I

KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T

BELIEVE IN THAT, BUT I

BELIEVE IT IS IMPORTANT TO.

Lee: "SEE YOU AT THE

POLL" MOVEMENT HAS SPREAD TO

MORE THAN 20 COUNTRIES.

Gordon: I ENCOURAGE

PEOPLE TO PARTICIPATE IN

THIS.

AND TO REALIZE WE CAN PRAY

AND GATHER AT PUBLIC

SCHOOLS.

AS LONG AS IT IS VOLUNTARY,

YOU CAN HAVE A PRAYER.

WE, HERE AT CBN, ARE CALLING

FOR PRAYER AND FOR OUR

NATION.

THERE IS A GREAT PRAYER

THEY'RE PRAYING AT THE POLL,

"LET THE EYES OF YOUR

UNDERSTANDING BE

ENLIGHTENED."

AND THAT'S FROM EPHESIANS,

AND THAT'S A GREAT PRAYER

FOR AMERICA.

THE EYES OF OUR

UNDERSTANDING WOULD

E ENLIGHTENED, SO WE WOULD

KNOW THE GREATNESS OF HIS

POWER TOWARDS US IF WE

BELIEVE.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

AFTER THIS.

Gordon: STUDIES SHOW

THAT MORE THAN HALF OF NEW

BUSINESSES FAIL WITHIN THE

FIRST FIVE YEARS.

CODY AND SHERRY'S COMPANY

ALMOST BECAME ONE OF THOSE

STATISTICS, UNTIL THEY

LEARNED HOW TO GET OUT OF

DEBT AND STAY OUT.

Reporter: CODY CLEMENS

SAYS IN THE EARLY '90s,

GOD GAVE HIM AN IDEA FOR A

CARTRIDGE DISPLAY BUSINESS.

BUT HE NEEDED MONEY TO GET

STARTED.

HIS WIFE, SHERRY, EXPLAINS.

WE HAD A COMMERCIAL

BANKER TO GIVE US SOME

FINANCIAL ADVICE, TO NEVER

USE YOUR OWN MONEY, AND

ALWAYS LOSE SOMEBODY

ELSE'S.

THAT WAY IF YOU LOST

EVERYTHING, YOU WOULDN'T

LOST WHAT YOU HAVE.

Reporter: SO THE

CLEMENS BOUGHT EVERYTHING ON

CREDIT CARDS.

IT BECAME A HABIT THAT WAS

HARD TO BREAK.

I WAS SPENDING A LOT OF

MONEY, BUT I COULD NEVER GET

OUT OF DEBT.

AND GOD GAVE US A

WARNING, YOU'VE GOT TO GET

RID OF YOUR DEBT OR I CAN'T

USE YOU.

Reporter: THEY TOOK

MATTERS INTO THEIR OWN

HANDS, AND MADE AN EXPENSIVE

AD IN A MAGAZINE AD.

ONE DAY BEFORE THE TRAGIC

EVENTS OF 9/11.

ALL OF THEIR SALES CAME TO A

HALT.

TO THIS DAY, WE HAVEN'T

GOTTEN A SINGLE SALE FROM

THAT AD.

Reporter: ONE DAY THEY

STARTED READING ABOUT THE

PRINCIPLES OF TITHING AND

BEGAN GIVING REGULARLY.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE

EVERY SINGLE TIME GOD WAS

PAID FIRST BEFORE ANYTHING

ELSE.

THAT REVOLUTIONIZED OUR

WHOLE LIFE.

Reporter: SHERRY

BELIEVES GOD TOLD THEM TO

PAY OFF THEIR MORTGAGE

BEFORE THEIR CREDIT CARDS.

WHEN I WAS QUESTIONING

GOD ABOUT IT, HE SAID, NO, I

WANT YOU TO PAY OFF YOUR

HOUSE FIRST.

BECAUSE I WANT TO GET THE

GLORY AND NOT MAN'S WISDOM.

I DISAGREED WITH HER.

I TURNED HIM OVER TO GOD,

AND SAID, GOD, YOU DEAL WITH

HIM.

Reporter: CODY

REFINANCED HIS HOUSE, BUT

ALL OF HIS ATTEMPTS FELL

THROUGH.

AND ONE DAY SOMETHING

CHANGED.

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW IT

HAPPENED.

ONE DAY I WOKE UP AND

THOUGHT WE HAVE TO PAY OFF

THIS HOUSE.

IT WAS MY IDEA.

Reporter: THE CLEMENS

WORKED HARD AND PAID OFF

THEIR HOUSE.

BUT THEIR PROBLEMS WEREN'T

OVER.

WEREN'T OVER.

THEIR COSTUMERS STOPPED

PAYING.

HE GAVE US THE EVIDENCE

THAT HE WAS FAITHFUL.

HANG IN THERE, AND HE'LL

PULL US THROUGH THAT FIRE.

Reporter: CODY AND

SHERRY WERE FAITHFUL, AND

THEY CONTINUED TO TITHE AND

TRUST, AND FINALLY A

BREAKTHROUGH.

THE ORDERS STARTED COMING

IN.

PEOPLE WOULD PAY ON TIME.

PEOPLE WOULD PAY EARLY.

IT WAS JUST WONDERFUL.

IT ONLY CAME TOGETHER

WHEN WE REALLY UNDERSTOOD

WHAT HIS DESIRE WAS AND WE

GOT INTO AGREEMENT WITH

HIM.

Reporter: THROUGH THE

YEARS, CODY AND SHERRY HAVE

CONTINUED TO GIVE TO THEIR

CHURCH AND TO CBN.

WHEN WE STARTED

STARTED SOWING INTO CBN

LAVISHLY, WE STARTED TO SEE

BLESSINGS COMING INTO OUR

LIVES.

Reporter: TODAY THEY

ARE DEBT-FREE AND THEIR

BUSINESS IS THRIVING.

IF YOU DON'T PLANT A

SEED, NOTHING WILL GROW.

IT DOESN'T MATTER IF 100 OR

1,000 -- THE SIZE DOESN'T

MATTER.

IT IS THE SIZE OF YOUR

OBEDIENCE AND STEPPING OUT.

Gordon: I LOVE THIS

COUPLE, CODY AND SHERRY.

THEY FOLLOWED "HONOR THE

LORD WITH YOUR INCREASE, SO

YOU'RE VATS WILL OVERFLOW

WITH NEW WINE."

THEY PUT HIM TO THE TEST.

IT IS AMAZING OF WHAT DID.

HE STARTED GIVING THEM IDEAS

OF HOW TO GET OUT OF DEBT.

IT SEEMED UNUSUAL, TO PAY

OFF YOUR MORTGAGE BEFORE

YOUR CREDIT CARDS, BUT THEY

OBEYED AND THE INCREASE

CAME.

SHERRY WAS SAYING, I PAID

GOD FIRST.

I HONORED HIM WITH THE FIRST

FRUITS.

IF YOU DO THAT, THE SAME

THING WILL HAPPEN TO YOU.

LIKE MANY SINGLE MOTHERS,

JAY MURRAY STRUGGLED TO PAY

THE BILLS.

AT ONE POINT, SHE DIDN'T

EVEN HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY

HER CHILDREN'S NEXT MEAL.

Reporter: SHE LOVES

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB" WITH

HER TWO DAUGHTERS, JANE AND

JAY.

IT LET'S ME KNOW I'M NOT

BY MYSELF.

THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE OUT

THERE WHO A HAVE STRUGGLED

AND HAD HARD TILES.

Reporter: JANE HAS HAD

SOME TOUGH TIMES HERSELF.

AFTER A SECOND DIVORCE, SHE

REALIZED SHE NEEDED GOD.

I WAS ALONE AGAIN, WITH

TWO CHILDREN.

AFTER MY LAST MARRIAGE, I

SAID THIS IS IT.

I'M GOING BACK TO WHERE I

NEED TO BE.

Reporter: JANE STARTED

GOING TO CHURCH AND

AND WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

SHE DREW CLOSE TO GOD, BUT

FINALLY SHE WAS STRUGGLING.

SHE HAD THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS

OF CREDIT CARD DEBT LEFT

OVER FROM HER MARRIAGE.

NOT TO MENTION THE COST OF

DRIVING A GAS-GUZZLING

S.U.V.

THE HOUSE PAYMENT WAS

OVER $2,000.

AND I WAS DRIVING A VEHICLE,

ALTHOUGH IT WAS PAID FOR, IT

WAS COSTING ME $800 TO

$1,000 A MONTH IN GAS.

YOU'RE DECIDING WHICH BILLS

GET PAID.

AND WORRIED THAT THE LIGHT

BILL WAS GOING TO BE MORE

THIS MONTH, AND WAS I GOING

TO HAVE IT THIS MONTH.

Reporter: SHE HAD SEEN

STORIES ON "THE 700 CLUB" OF

HOW GOD BLESSED OTHERS

THROUGH THEIR FAITHFUL

GIVING.

SO SHE GAVE TO HER CHURCH

WHEN SHE COULD, BUT THE

BILLS KEPT COMING, AND SHE

FELT SHE HAD NO MONEY LEFT

TO GIVE.

I'M WATCHING THESE

STORIES AND I'M HEARING

THESE PEOPLE SAY, YOU KNOW,

OH, YOU PROVIDED, AND NOW

THERE IS JUST AN ABUNDANCE

IN MY LIFE.

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT

WAS BLOCKING ME FROM THAT

GIFT.

Reporter: ON ONE

OCCASION SHE WAS CRYING OUT

TO GOD BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T

HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY GAS

OR EVEN CEREAL OR MILK FOR

YOUR GIRLS.

LATER THAT AFTERNOON, A

FRIEND STOPPED BY WITH A

THANK YOU CARD.

HE SAID, I WANT TO THANK

YOU.

YOU TAKE SETH BACK AND FORTH

TO SCHOOL.

AND I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW

THAT I APPRECIATE YOU.

WHEN I OPENED IT, IT WAS A

$50 GIFT CARD.

YOU'RE ON YOUR KNEES CRYING,

AND THEN WITHIN TWO HOURS

THERE IS $50 AT YOUR DOOR.

THAT JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN.

I THINK THAT WAS A TURNING

POINT FOR ME.

OKAY, JANE, YOU STILL HAVE

TO TRUST HIM.

Reporter: JANE COULDN'T

UNDERSTAND HOW SHE COULD

GIVE 10%, UNTIL SOMETHING

SHE SAW SOMETHING ON THE

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW

MUCH YOU GIVE.

SOME PEOPLE COULD ONLY GIVE

$5, BUT THEY STARTED GIVING

IT FAITHFULLY.

Reporter: SHE STARTED

GIVING TO CBN, USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

IT IS COMING OUT OF MY

CHECKING ACCOUNT.

IT IS ONE OF THE FIRST

THINGS THAT COMES OUT.

IT IS NOT PART OF THE

BUDGET.

IT IS THERE, AND I WANT TO

BE FAITHFUL WITH IT.

Reporter: JANE SAYS GOD

STARTED SHOWING HER WAYS TO

GET HER FINANCES ON TRACK.

FIRST SHE TRADED IN HER

S.U.V., WHICH WAS PAID FOR

AND CLEARED $10,000.

WHICH WAS ENOUGH TO PAY OFF

HER CREDIT CARDS.

SHE ALSO MOVED OUT OF THE

HOUSE SHE WAS IN AND FOUND

HER DREAM HOME, WHICH WAS

WELL WITHIN HER BUDGET.

WHEN MY KIDS WALKED IN,

MY YOUNGEST DAUGHTER, WHO

LOVES TO COOK, SAYS, MAMA,

IT EVEN HAS DOUBLE OVENS.

Reporter: JANE WANTS

EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT

THROUGH HER FAITHFUL GIVING

TO CHURCH AND CBN, GOD IS

GIVING HER FAMILY EVERYTHING

THEY NEED.

LOOK AT HOW GOD IS

WORKING, LOOK AT HOW HE IS

PROVIDING FOR ME.

Gordon: JANE LEARNED

IT, AND SHE LEARNED IT BY

UNDERSTANDING THAT WITH THE

MEASURE YOU USE, IT IS

MEASURED BACK TO YOU.

I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE GET

UNDER CONDEMNATION IF

THEY'RE NOT TITHING, AND

THEY DON'T EVEN WANT TO LOOK

AT IT.

AND THEY'RE GOING, MY

BUDGET -- I JUST CAN'T FIT

IN A 10% GIVING PLAN.

I JUST CAN'T DO IT.

AND JANE HEARD, JUST START

AND SEE WHAT GOD WILL DO.

WITH THE MEASURE YOU USE, IT

WILL BE MEASURED BACK TO

YOU.

BUT IF YOU'RE DOING NOTHING,

THEN GOD CAN'T COME INTO

PLAY ON THIS.

YOU'VE GOT TO TRUST HIM.

SO TRUST HIM WITH A LITTLE

LITTLE BIT AND SEE

WHAT HAPPENS.

THEN YOU'LL BE ENCOURAGED TO

TRUST HIM EVEN MORE.

AND YOU'LL SEE AN INCREASE,

AND WE'LL START TRACKING.

AND WITH THE MEASURE I GIVE,

IT WILL BE MEASURED BACK TO

ME.

SEE IF THAT WILL COME TRUE

FOR YOU.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT GREAT NEWS.

SOME EXISTING CBN PARTNERS,

JUST LIKE JANE, SAY I LIKE

GIVING SO MUCH, I WANT TO

ENCOURAGE IT.

SO WE'VE GOT A CHALLENGE OF

$75,000.

GOD, FOR THOSE WATCHING AND

WONDERING, SPEAK TO THEM,

ENCOURAGE THEM, AND LET THEM

KNOW YOU WANT TO BLESS THEM,

AND YOU WANT TO BE WITH

THEM.

DO IT NOW, LORD, FOR WE ASK

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

$39,000, WHAT WE'RE ASKING

YOU TO DO IS TRY IT AND

SEE.

BECOME A MEMBER OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S JUST $20 A MONTH, 65

CENTS A DAY.

CALL THAT NUMBER,

1-800-759-0700.

SOME OF YOU SAY YOU GIVE AT

A HIGHER LEVEL.

WE'VE GOT "THE 700 CLUB"

GOLD, $40, AND A THOUSAND

MEMBER IS $84 A YEAR.

2500 CLUB, $2500 A YEAR, AND

FOUNDERS CLUB IS $5,000 A

YEAR.

AND CHAIRMAN'S LEVEL,

$10,000 A YEAR OR MORE.

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN YOU GIVE,

YOUR GIFT IS MULTIPLIED IN

PLACES AROUND THE WORLD.

IN PLACES LIKE RURAL CHINA,

WHERE FAMILIES LIKE THE ZENG

STRUGGLED EVERY DAY TO FIND

DRINKING WATER.

CHIN AND CHO ARE THE BEST OF

FRIENDS.

THEY LIVE WITH THEIR

GRANDPARENTS ON A FARM IN

THE COUNTRY.

AND AS MUCH AS THEY LOVE TO

HAVE FUN, THEY ARE EQUAL

SERIOUS ABOUT THEIR

STUDIES.

THERE IS NOTHING THAT COULD

KEEP THEM AWAY FROM SCHOOL

OR FROM EACH OTHER.

UNTIL THEY STARTED GETTING

SEVERE STOMACH ACHES AND HAD

TO MISS A LOT OF CLASS.

DOCTORS DISCOVERED THE ROOT

OF THE PROBLEM WAS

CONTAMINATED WATER.

MY GRANDFATHER AND I HAD

AN INFECTION FROM THE WATER

WELL VERY FAR AWAY.

WE DIDN'T LIKE THE WATER

AT ALL.

THERE WAS SAND AND MUD IN

IT, AND IT TASTED VERY BAD.

Reporter: SO GRANDMA

AND GRANDPA ZANG DUG A WELL

OF THEIR OWN, BUT IT WAS TOO

SHALLOW AND THEY STILL HAD

STOMACH PROBLEMS.

I CRIED WHEN I HAD TO GO

TO THE HOSPITAL BECAUSE MY

STOMACH HURT SO MUCH.

AND ALSO BECAUSE I COULDN'T

GO TO SCHOOL.

I DIDN'T WANT TO FALL

BEHIND.

I WAS SO WORRIED ABOUT

CHO.

I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS

GOING THROUGH BECAUSE I HAD

FELT THE SAME WAY.

I REALLY WISH THESE

STOMACHACHES WOULD GO AWAY.

Terry: CHEN'S WISH CAME

TRUE WHEN CBN CAME TO THEIR

VILLAGE AND DUG A DEEPER

WELL FOR THE FAMILY.

WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY IS

THE WELL IS RIGHT IN OUR

BACKYARD.

WE DON'T HAVE TO WALK

DISTANCES FOR WATER

ANYMORE.

NOW WE HAVE CLEAN BAUD

WATER AND PLENTY OF IT.

IT IS THE BEST.

THERE IS NO WELL BETTER THAN

WHAT CBN DUG FOR US.

Terry: THE TWINS ARE

BACK IN CLASS AND FEELING

BETTER THAN EVER.

I HAVE NOT BEEN SICK ONCE

SINCE I DRANK THE WATER FROM

THE NEW WELL.

THERE IS NO SAND OR MUD

IN THIS WATER.

IT IS SO SWEET.

CHO AND I ARE SO HAPPY.

THANK YOU, CBN.

Terry: THANK

YOU, INDEED.

CLEAN WATER, IT IS LIFE

CHANGING IN MOST PARTS OF

THE WORLD. HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES, WE OFTEN TAKE

IT FOR GRANTED.

IT IS SO EASY TO GO TO THE

SINK OR THE FAUCET AND WE

DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.

BUT IN OTHER PARTS OF THE

WORLD YOU CAN SEE HOW MUCH

EFFORT IS PUT INTO GETTING

WATER THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN

DRINK BECAUSE IT WILL MAKE

YOU ILL.

WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR

PROVIDING WATER FOR NOT JUST

THIS FAMILY, BUT FOR LOTS OF

FAMILIES AND VILLAGES AROUND

THE WORLD.

THAT'S WHY RIGHT NOW WE'RE

ASKING YOU TO JOIN THE

EIGHT, BUT SHE STILL FINDS

TIME TO HELP HUNDREDS OF

OTHERS IN HER COMMUNITY.

Reporter: ON A LONG

HIGHWAY BETWEEN SAN ANTONIO

AND EL PASO, TEXAS, RACHEL

HERNANDEZ WORKS AT A

JANITORIAL SUPERVISOR AT A

HIGHWAY REST STOP.

SHE GETS UP AT 4:00 EVERY

MORNING TO GO TO WORK, JUST

SO SHE CAN PROVIDE FOR HER

FAMILY.

IT IS KIND OF HARD

SOMETIMES TO GET UP AND JUST

WALK.

JUST GET UP AND TRY TO START

YOUR DAY.

IT IS VERY HARD TO BE ABLE

TO PICK UP GROCERIES, TO PAY

THE LIGHT BILL, FIX MY CARS

IF THEY BREAK DOWN.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO

START.

I HAVE TO BE THERE.

AND I HAVE TO BE THE

STRONGEST ONE.

FAMILY.

Reporter: RACHEL

DECIDED TO BE PART OF

HELPING HER NEIGHBORS, WHO

WAS.

THE FIRST TIME I GAVE OUT

A BOX, IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE

WORLD.

IT'S THEM, TOO.

GIVEN COWBOY FELLOWSHIP, AND

COWBOY FELLOWSHIP HAS GIVEN

TO RACHEL, AND RACHEL NOW

ENSURES THAT EVERYONE IN

THIS AREA RECEIVES THE SAME

BLESSING.

I NEVER KNEW -- I NEVER

KNEW THAT THERE WERE STILL

Gordon: IT IS PART OF

GARY PARKS GOT A CHANCE TO

DO JUST THAT WHEN HE

DEVELOPED A BUSINESS IDEA

SIMPLY BY DRIVING DOWN THE

STREET.

Reporter: GARY PARKS IS

A HARD WORKER, BUT HE COULD

NEVER QUITE MAKE ENDS MEET.

HE WORKED AT SEVERAL

PART-TIME JOBS, INCLUDING AT

A GAS STATION AND BUILDING

WELDERS.

SHARON REMEMBERS WHEN THEY

HAD TO BUY FOOD PAST THE

EXPIRATION DATE AT THE

DISCOUNT GROCERY STORE.

MY SON WOULD GET

OUT THE CEREAL AND WOULD BE

READY TO PUT IT IN, AND

THERE WOULD BE BUGS IN THERE

CRAWLING AROUND AND HE WOULD

FREAK OUT.

WE HAD AN ELECTRIC BILL

FOR $25, AND WE WERE TRYING

TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET THE

MONEY FOR THAT.

Reporter: SHARON

STARTED CLEANING HOUSES FOR

EXTRA INCOME.

SHE ALSO BEGAN TO PRAY.

SHE ASKED GOD TO FIX THEIR

FINANCES.

ONE DAY SHE TURNED ON "THE

700 CLUB."

AND HE STARTED TEACHING

ABOUT THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY, AND IT REALLY

OPENED MY EYES ABOUT TITHING

AND GIVING AND REAPING AND

SOWING, AND HOW GOD WANTS TO

BLESS US.

Reporter: SHE JOINED

"THE 700 CLUB" FROM HER

SMALL INCOME CLEANING

HOUSES.

THREE MONTHS LATER, SHE GOT

A CONTRACT MAKING $8,000 A

MONTH CLEANING COMMERCIAL

BUSINESSES.

AND GARY GOT A FULL-TIME

JOB, WITH BENEFITS, WITH THE

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF

FORESTRY.

HE STARTED WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" WITH HIS WIFE AND

TITHING FROM HIS PAYCHECKS,

TOO.

I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE IT

A TRY AND SEE WHAT IT WOULD

DO FOR ME.

Reporter: AND THAT'S

WHEN HE SAYS GOD GAVE HIM A

NEW IDEA FOR HIS NEW

COMPANY.

I SEEN A NEW HOUSE BEING

BUILT, AND DEBRIS WAS ALL

OVER THE YARD.

AND THE LORD SAID YOU NEED

TO MAKE A CONTAINMENT AREA

AND HAULING THAT STUFF

AWAY.

IN 30 DAYS I MADE MORE MONEY

THAN I DID ALL YEAR LONG

WITH THE STATE OF FLORIDA

FORESTRY SERVICE.

Reporter: GARY WENT

FROM $30 A WEEK AND DOUBLED

IT.

IT MEANT THE MORE WE

MAKE, THE MORE WE COULD

GIVE.

I WAS SO EXCITED FOR WHAT HE

WAS DOING IN OUR LIVES.

Reporter: GARY SOLD HIS

BUSINESS JUST TWO MONTHS

BEFORE THE RECESSION HIT THE

HOUSING INDUSTRY.

I STARTED OUT WITH FIVE

DUMPSTERS, AND WHEN I SOLD

THE BUSINESS, I HAD 18

TRUCKS AND 300 DUMPSTERS.

THE LORD WAS THE ONE WHO

TOLD ME TO SELL THE

BUSINESS.

Reporter: THEY ALSO

TAUGHT THEIR SONS ABOUT

GIVING, AND TODAY KELLY IS A

PARTNER WITH HIS DAD IN A

NEW DEMOLITION BUSINESS.

OUR PROFITS ARE GOING

UP.

AND EVERY YEAR WE GET MORE

AND MORE, AND ALL IT TOOK

WAS THAT ONE CHANCE AT

GIVING.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR ME

AND MY FAMILY, HE CAN DO FOR

ANY OTHER FAMILY OUT THERE.

I GUARANTEE YOU GOD WILL

BLESS YOU.

JUST STEP OUT, AND HE WILL

MEET YOU.

WHEREVER YOU'RE AT, IF IT IS

EVEN A PENNY OR A DOLLAR, HE

WILL BLESS YOU.

Gordon: SHARON GOT THE

MESSAGE, SHE PUT IT INTO

ACTION, AND HERE THEY ARE

HAVING TROUBLE JUST PUTTING

FOOD ON THE TABLE.

SHE HEARS A TEACHING ON

TITHING AND GIVING AND THE

LAW OF RECIPROCITY, WHICH IS

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU, AND SO SHE PUT IT

INTO ACTION, AND SOON THINGS

STARTED CHANGING.

AND SHE STARTED GETTING

IDEAS OF HOW TO EXPAND THE

BUSINESS, AND INCREASED HER

INCOME.

HER HUSBAND SAW THAT

HAPPENING, AND SAID, THAT

LOOKS GOOD.

I'LL TRY THAT.

WITHIN DAYS, GOD HAS GIVEN

HIM AN IDEA FOR A BRAND NEW

BUSINESS AND GUIDES AND

DIRECTS HIM.

PSALM 128: "BLESSED ARE ALL

WHO FEAR THE LORD AND WALK

IN HIS WAYS.

YOU WILL EAT THE FRUIT OF

YOUR LABEL.

THUS IS THE MAN BLESSED WHO

FEARS THE LORD."

IF YOU WANT TO JUST TEST GOD

IN THIS, TRY HIM.

WELL A NEW START-UP BUSINESS

CAN BE RISKY, JUST ASK SCOTT

OWENS.

HE WENT THREE YEARS WITHOUT

A SALARY.

THEN SCOTT TOOK THE LAST OF

HIS MONEY AND MADE AN

INVESTMENT THAT JUMP-STARTED

HIS COMPANY.

Reporter: IN 1991,

SCOTT OWENS CAME UP WITH A

GROUNDBREAKING IDEA.

WE WANTED TO TAKE THE

WHOLE DEFENSIVE DRIVING TO

THE NEXT LEVEL.

Reporter: SO HE AND A

BUSINESS PARTNER LAUNCHED A

COMPUTER-BASED TRAFFIC

SCHOOL.

BUT GETTING THE BUSINESS OFF

THE GROUND TOOK A LONG TIME

AND A LOT OF MONEY.

MY PARTNER AND I TOOK ALL

OF OUR INVESTMENT CAPITAL

AND INVESTED IN THIS.

Reporter: WITH ALL OF

THEIR MONEY IN THE START-UP,

THINGS WERE TIGHT.

IT WAS A STRUGGLE.

DUE TO THE FACT WE HAD NO

INCOME.

IT MADE IT VERY DIFFICULT TO

PAY THE BILLS.

TO THE POINT WHERE OUR

ELECTRICITY GOT CUT OFF.

WE DIDN'T EAT VERY WELL.

WE ATE RICE AND TUNAFISH,

AND PECANS WE HAD IN THE

BACKYARD.

IT WAS A DIFFICULT STRUGGLE,

BUT WE GOT THROUGH IT.

Reporter: THEY

STRUGGLED FOR THREE LONG

YEARS.

SCOTT BELIEVES IT WAS THEN

GOD TOLD HIM TO GIVE TO A

LOCAL CHURCH.

I HAD ABOUT $400 IN A

COFFEE CAN.

I WENT HOME AND STRUGGLED

WITH IT FOR A LITTLE WHILE,

AND THEN TOOK IT DOWN TO THE

CHURCH AND PUT IT ON THE

DOOR STEP.

Reporter: FINALLY

THINGS TURNED AROUND.

THE COMPANY GREW AND DID

EXTREMELY WELL.

I CAN ATTRIBUTE IT BACK TO

THE $400 COFFEE CAN.

Reporter: IN 2007 HE

MARRIED, AND SHE CONVINCED

HIM TO START TITHING, AND

THE COMPANY DID.

THE COMPANY STARTED

THRIVING.

EVENTUALLY, SCOTT DECIDED TO

SELL THE COMPANY, BUT SCOTT

HAD A FALLOUT WITH THE

SHAREHOLDERS, AND HIS

PERCENTAGE WAS CUT 10%.

I LOOKED AT THE TITHE,

AND I THOUGHT THAT IS A

SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF

MONEY.

THAT'S THE AMOUNT OF MONEY

WE'RE SHORT.

AND I REALLY STRUGGLED WITH

THAT.

AND HE WOULD SAY, THIS IS

THE AMOUNT WE TITHE, SO

MAYBE WE SHOULD STOP FOR A

WHILE.

I SAID, NO, THAT'S THE LAST

THING WE SHOULD DO.

IF WE'RE GOING TO STAY

STRONG AND STAY FAITHFUL,

EVERY TIME GOD WILL SEE YOU

THROUGH BETTER THAN YOU CAN

ASK OR THINK.

Reporter: THEY DECIDED

TO KEEP TITHING TO THE

AMOUNT THEY WERE TITHING

BEFORE THE PAY CUTTER.

WE HELD TO IT.

WE STUCK TO IT, AND

SURPRISINGLY ENOUGH, EVERY

MONTH ADDITIONAL INCOME

WOULD COME IN THAT WOULD

COVER THE REMAINING PORTION

OF THE BILLS.

Reporter: FOR THREE

YEARS THE COUPLE TITHED

FAITHFULLY AND TRUSTED GOD

TO SURVIVE.

AND EVENTUALLY THEY CLOSED

THE DEAL, AND SCOTT MAY 70

TIMES HIS INITIAL

INVESTMENT.

I WAS IN SHOCK.

I WAS IN AWE.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING THE

BLESSINGS GOD HAS GIVEN ME

AND MY FAMILY.

Reporter: SCOTT

BELIEVES IT WAS THEIR

FAITHFUL GIVING THAT MADE

ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE.

JUST TRY IT, DO IT

FAITHFULLY.

I GUARANTEE YOU YOU WILL SEE

GOD'S BLESSING.

Gordon: JUST TRY IT.

DO IT FAITHFULLY, AND THEN

SEE WHAT GOD DOES.

HERE IT IS FROM DEUTERONOMY

8: "NEVER THINK IT WAS YOUR

OWN STRENGTH AND ENERGY THAT

MADE YOU WEALTHY.

ALWAYS REMEMBER IT IS THE

LORD, YOUR GOD, WHO GIVES

YOU THE POWER TO BECOME

RICH."

SCOTT SAID, OKAY, I'M GOING

TO GIVE.

I'M GOING TO GIVE EVEN WHEN

IT HURTS.

I'M GOING TO GIVE

FAITHFULLY.

I'M GOING TO TEST GOD AND

PROVE GOD, AND HE IS GOING

TO OPEN WINDOWS FROM HEAVEN

AND POUR OUT BLESSINGS I

CANNOT CONTAIN.

IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU

JUST PUT THE PRINCIPLES INTO

ACTION.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO START, CALL

US, 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A PART OF EVERYTHING YOU'RE

DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

$75,000 CHALLENGE.

IF WE CAN GET THE RED NUMBER

UP, WE'VE GOT $34,000 TO GO

ON IT IN 10 MINUTES.

SO GIVE US A CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: FOR GYPSY

FAMILIES IN UKRAINE, POVERTY

IS A WAY OF LIFE.

THE FAMILY IN THIS NEXT

STORY HAD A BABY WITH FOUR

DIFFERENT ILLNESSES AND NO

MONEY TO SEE A DOCTOR.

Reporter: JANE AND HER

FAMILY HAVE A HARD LIFE IN

THIS GYPSY CAMP IN WESTERN

UKRAINE.

THEY HAVE LIVED THERE THEIR

WHOLE LIVES AND BARELY HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY TO FEED AND

TAKE CARE OF THEIR

CHILDREN.

THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT THEIR

YOUNGEST DAUGHTER, SOFIA,

WHO SUFFERS FROM A SEVERE

SKIN DISORDER.

SHE IS ALWAYS IN PAIN AND

CRIES CONSTANTLY AND

CAN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT.

Reporter: SHE APPLIES

THE ONLY CREAM SHE CAN

AFFORD.

IT DOESN'T DO ANYTHING TO

MAKE HER BETTER OR REDUCE

HER PAIN.

I CANNOT HELP HER.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Reporter: WHEN CBN

ORGANIZED A FREE MEDICAL OUT

REACH IN THIS VILLAGE, THE

PASTOR TOLD US ABOUT

CHRISTINA AND THE REST OF

HER FAMILY.

WE VISITED HER HOME AND SAW

HOW DESPERATELY THE LITTLE

GIRL NEEDED HELP.

SHE WAS MALNOURISHED AND

UNDER WEIGHT, AND WE

DIAGNOSED HER WITH

BRONCHITIS AND OBVIOUSLY

DERMATITIS.

BUT WE WILL TREAT ALL OF

THESE PROBLEMS FOR SURE.

Reporter: WE TOOK THE

FAMILY FOOD, CLOTHES, AND

ALL OF THE RIGHT MEDICINES

CHRISTINA NEEDED TO

RECOVER.

WE TAUGHT JANE HOW TO CARE

FOR HER DAUGHTER.

AND CHRISTINA'S CONDITION

STARTED TO IMPROVE

IMMEDIATELY.

WE GAVE THE FAMILY A WASHING

MACHINE SO CHRISTINA AND

EVERYONE ELSE'S CLOTHES

COULD BE FRESH.

A FEW MONTHS LATER, WE

STOPPED TO VISIT WITH JANE

AND HER FAMILY.

WE WERE HAPPY TO SEE

CHRISTINA'S SKIN CLEARED UP

AND SHE HAD NO PAIN AT ALL.

THIS SLEEPS WELL AND HAS

GOOD MEALS, AND EVERYTHING

IS GOING VERY WELL FOR US.

Reporter: AND JANE IS

HAVING A MUCH EASIER TIME

TAKING CARE OF HER

CHILDREN.

MY LIFE GOT SO MUCH

BETTER AFTER YOU GAVE ME A

WASHING MACHINE.

AND BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP,

CHRISTINA DOESN'T GET SICK

NOW.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: YOU KNOW, IN

PARTS OF THE WORLD, GYPSIES

ARE SORT OF THE UNTOUCHABLES

IN THE CULTURES THAT THEY

LIVE IN.

IN THIS PARTICULAR INSTANCE,

THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

NEVER SEEN A DOCTOR BEFORE.

YOU CAN IMAGINE WHAT AN

AMAZING GIFT THAT WAS TO

THEM, FIRST OF ALL TO HAVE

THE MEDICAL ATTENTION THEY

NEEDED, THE MEDICINE

PROVIDED, AND THEN TO HAVE

THINGS GIVEN TO THEM THAT

WILL HELP THEM TO MOVE

FORWARD IN THEIR LIVES.

IT IS NOT A HANDOUT.

IT IS A HAND-UP.

THEY'RE LEARNING LOU TO TAKE

CARE OF THEIR FAMILIES AND

HOW DO THAT EFFECTIVELY.

YOU MAKE THAT POSSIBLE WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY.

THAT'S A $20 A MONTH

COMMITMENT, BUT IT REALLY

MAKES A DIFFERENCE WHEN WE

ALL PARTNER TOGETHER.

THAT'S WHY TODAY WE'RE

ASKING YOU TO GO TO YOUR

PHONE AND CALL.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT TO

AND MAYBE YOU ARE A "THE 700

CLUB" MEMBER.

THINK ABOUT GOING TO THE

NEXT CLUB LEVEL.

WE HAVE A LEVEL WE CALLED

"THE 700 CLUB" GOLD, $40 A

MONTH.

WE HAVE A THOUSAND CLUB

LEVEL AT $84.

THESE ARE FOLKS THAT GIVE A

GIFT OF $10,000 OR MORE A

YEAR.

PRAY ABOUT IT.

AND THEN STEP OUT IN FAITH

AND EXPECTANCY.

BY THE WAY, WE'RE IN THE

MIDDLE OF A GREAT

CHALLENGE.

Gordon: I'VE GOT GREAT

NEWS.

SOME PARTNERS SAY $75,000

ISN'T ENOUGH.

THEY WANT TO DOUBLE IT AND

TAKE IT TO $150,000.

AND WE GET ABOUT 20 MINUTES

ON THE CLOCK.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

FOR THE PARTNERS THAT

DOUBLED THIS.

WE SPEAK A BLESSING IN THEIR

LIVES AND THEIR HOMES.

BE WITH THEM AND ENCOURAGE

THEM, FOR WE ASK IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Gordon: $150,000, AND

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

SO CALL US RIGHT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

ON A REMOTE ISLAND IN

INDONESIA, WE MET A

10-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO HAD

NEVER BEEN TO SCHOOL.

IN FACT, HE HAD NEVER EVEN

LEFT HER HOUSE, AND YOU'RE

GOING TO SEE WHY.

Terry: 10-YEAR-OLD

SILITA HAS LIVED HER LIFE IN

THE SHADOW OF HER PARENTS'

HOME.

HER MOM SAYS HER DAUGHTER

FEELS TOO HUMILIATED TO GO

OUT IN PUBLIC OR ATTEND

SCHOOL.

I FEEL PITY ON HER.

SHE IS EMBARRASSED OF HER

CLEFT LIP.

Reporter: HERE ON THIS

REMOTE ISLAND, SILITA SPENDS

HER DAYS WAITING FOR HER

ONLY FRIEND TO COME HOME TO

PLAY.

I WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL

WITH HER SOME DAY.

Terry: SILITA'S PARENTS

ARE POOR RICE FARMERS,

GROWING WHAT THEY CAN TO EAT

OR SELL.

PAYING FOR SURGERY TO REPAIR

SILITA'S LIP HAS NEVER BEEN

POSSIBLE.

ALL I WANT FOR MY

DAUGHTER IS TO RECEIVE HIGH

EDUCATION, IF SHE GETS HER

LIP FIXED.

FIXED.rter:

Terry: ONE DAY THE

FAMILY LEARNED THAT CBN

WOULD PROVIDE FREE SURGERY

TO REPAIR THEIR DAUGHTER'S

LEFT LIP AND PALLET.

A SHORT TIME LATER WE

ARRANGED FOR AN OPERATION TO

CORRECT HER LIP.

I AM GOING TO SCHOOL THIS

YEAR.

I FEEL SO HAPPY THAT I

RECEIVED THE OPERATION.

I'M SO HAPPY FOR MY

DAUGHTER'S OPERATION.

BECAUSE OF YOU, I CAN SEE MY

DAUGHTER ATTEND SCHOOL.

Terry: WHILE WE WERE

THERE, SHE TOOK SILITA TO

REGISTER HER FOR HER

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.

I AM SO GRATEFUL.

BECAUSE OF YOU, MY DAUGHTER

GETS HER HOPE BACK.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

TO CBN.

BECAUSE OF YOU, I DON'T HAVE

TO BE ASHAMED ANYMORE.

Gordon: WHAT A

WONDERFUL FAMILY.

AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," THANK YOU.

BECAUSE YOU'RE PART OF

THAT.

A PORTION OF EVERY GIFT GOES

INTO THE WORK OF "OPERATION

BLESSING."

AND ANOTHER PORTION GOES

INTO THE WORK OF CBN

INTERNATIONAL TO ESTABLISH

CENTERS AROUND THE WORLD.

THAT ONE WAS FROM

INDONESIA.

ONE OF THE LARGEST MUSLIM

COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD.

THAT'S A MUSLIM FAMILY.

AND WE JUST WANT TO TELL

THEM WE LOVE THEM AND WE

WANT TO HELP THEM.

THAT GOD LOVES THEM, TOO.

AND JESUS LOVES THEM.

WE'RE DOING IT IN YOUR NAME

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, A

THOUSAND CLUB MEMBER SAYING

I WANT TO GO TO FOUNDER

PLUS.

$8,000.

THAT TAKES US DOWN.

WE'RE COUNTING DOWN TO

VICTORY.

WE'VE GOT 16 MINUTES, 35

SECONDS ON THAT CLOCK.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

SO GO TO THE PHONE AND CALL

US.

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO OVER TO WENDY.

Wendy: THANK YOU,

GORDON.

THE ELECTION IS MORE THAN A

MONTH AWAY.

AND WE'VE BEEN BOMBARDED

WITH CAMPAIGN ADS.

POLITICIANS FROM BOTH SIDES

OF THE AISLE ARE OUTLINING

THEIR PLANS FOR AMERICA.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT

IS GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA?

OUR LATEST C.D. TEACHING BY

PAT ROBERTSON ALREADY HAS

THE ANSWER.

I WAS WATCHING PAT'S

TEACHING ON WHAT GOD HAS

PLANNED FOR AMERICA, AND I

THINK PAT'S TEACHING IS A

BREATH OF FRESH AIR.

THERE IS SO MUCH NEGATIVE ON

THE TV, IT IS GOOD TO KNOW

HOW MUCH OF A DOWNWARD

SPIRAL THAT WE THINK OUR

COUNTRY IS, WE STILL HAVE A

COVENANT.

AND PAT REMINDS IS THERE IS

A WAY TO INCREASE 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: GOD HAS A PLAN

FOR YOU, FOR ME, AND FOR

AMERICA.

AND IT'S A GOOD PLAN.

AND HE PROMISES IN HIS WORD,

IF WE PRAY AND SEEK HIS

FAITH, HE WILL FORGIVE OUR

SINS AND HEAL OUR LAND.

WELL, OUR LAND NEEDS SOME

HEALING.

AS WE LEAD UP TO THE

ELECTION, WE NEED TO BE

PRAYING LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU

WITH THIS, "GOD'S PLAN FOR

AMERICA."

WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IS COMING

BUT GOD DOES.

HE WANTS US TO BE READY, AND

WE CAN BE.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS.

THIS IS OUR FREE GIFT WHEN

YOU CALL, 1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com, AND YOU CAN SAY, I

LIKE WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND I

WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

BECAUSE, YOU KNOW WHAT?

I WANT TO BE BLESSED.

AND YOU WILL BE BLESSED WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB"

BECAUSE YOU CANNOT OUTGIVE

GOD.

MAYBE YOU'RE ALREADY A

MEMBER AND YOU CAN BUMP IT

UP TO THE GOLD LEVEL, WHICH

IS JUST $40 A MONTH, WE'RE

GOING TO GIVE YOU THREE

D.V.D.s.

ONE FOR YOU AND TWO TO GIVE

AWAY.

AND IF YOU JOIN AT THE

THOUSAND LEVEL, WE'VE GOT

FIVE D.V.D.s YOU CAN GIVE

TO WHOEVER YOU WANT.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

$150,000 CHALLENGE.

THAT MEANS EVERY DOLLAR THAT

YOU PLEDGE WILL BE DOUBLED,

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

Gordon: ROSLYN AND

JULIAN BARTON WERE IN DEBT.

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.

Gordon: IF YOU HONOR

HIM, HE WILL PROVIDE.

HE WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR

NEEDS.

IF YOU PUT THE KINGDOM OF

GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS

FIRST, ALL OF THESE OTHER

THINGS WILL BE ADDED ON TO

YOU.

I LOVE WHAT JULIAN AND ROZ

DID.

THEY DECIDED TO GET OUT OF

ALL CONSUMER DEBT.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO

THE SAME THING.

IT IS VERY HARD TO GET AHEAD

IF YOU'RE CONSTANTLY PAYING

INTEREST CHARGES ON CONSUMER

DEBT.

AND DO EXACTLY WHAT THEY

DID.

PICK THE SMALLEST ONES, PAY

THEM OFF, AND THEN START

APPLYING THOSE PAYMENTS TO

THE NEXT ONE, AND THEN START

APPLYING THOSE PAYMENTS TO

THE NEXT ONE.

AND PRETTY SOON YOU'LL BE

COMPLETELY DEBT-FREE.

AND IT IS LIKE GETTING A

RAISE WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE TO

MAKE THE PAYMENTS ANYMORE.

PAY THEM OFF, HONOR GOD WITH

YOUR FIRST FRUITS, AND SEE

WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU.

WE'VE GOT A $150,000

CHALLENGE.

WE'VE GOT LESS THAN

$50,000 -- $48,000 IS THE

RED NUMBER.

BRADEN, FLORIDA, A THOUSAND

CLUB MEMBER, IT'S CATCHING,

GOING UP, $8,000.

THAT TAKES US DOWN WITH JUST

11 MINUTES ON THE CLOCK.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO

CALL US RIGHT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WE'VE BEEN

SHARING WITH YOU SOME OF

WHAT CBN MEMBERS ARE DOING

BUT TONIGHT, ONE IN SEVEN

AMERICAN FAMILIES IS GOING

TO GO TO BED HUNGRY.

THAT'S WHY "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS WORKING ALL

OVER AMERICA TO HELP

STRUGGLING FAMILIES PUT FOOD

ON THEIR TABLE.

Reporter: CHRIS PRICE

SUPPORTS HIS WIFE AND TWO

CHILDREN BY WORKING AS AN

AUTO TECHNICIAN.

MY JOB TO ME IS VERY

IMPORTANT.

I THANK GOD EVERY DAY I HAVE

A JOB.

Reporter: BUT A RECENT

CUT IN HIS HOURS HAS MADE IT

HARD JUST TO PUT FOOD ON THE

TABLE.

SO THE FAMILY IS FINDING

CREATIVE WAYS TO STRETCH

THEIR BUDGET.

CHRIS WALKS TWO MILES EACH

DAY TO AND FROM WORK TO SAVE

ON GAS.

AND THEY GET FOOD FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PARTNER, JOSEPH'S STORE

HOUSE.

IF I DIDN'T HAVE THE

FOOD, I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE

MISSED WATER OR ELECTRIC SO

I COULD BUY THE FOOD.

Reporter: BOB IS THE

FOUNDER OF THE STOREHOUSE,

AND HE SAYS "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS A BLESSING.

IT IS SUCH A BLESSING TO

US.

IT IS KIND OF LIKE CHRISTMAS

EVERY MONTH.

IT PUT KITCHEN ON OUR

TABLE, AND MY WIFE AND OUR

KIDS ARE VERY, VERY GRATEFUL

FOR THAT.

IT'S GOOD TO KNOW THERE ARE

OTHER PEOPLE TRYING TO HELP

PEOPLE.

Terry: WITH THE WAY THE

ECONOMY IS TODAY, WE REALLY

NEED YOU TO PARTNER WITH US

SURE THAT FAMILIES IN

GORDON?

Gordon: IN THE

PHILIPPINES, MANY OF THE

CHILDREN UNDER FIVE YEARS

OLD DON'T GET ENOUGH FOOD.

AND THAT KIND OF MAL MUR

NOURISHMENT CAN LEAD TO

LEARNING DISABILITIES.

SO THAT'S WHY WE STARTED

THIS FEEDING PROGRAM.

Reporter: THEY WERE

RAISING THEIR OWN CHILDREN

WHEN THEY DECIDED TO TAKE IN

THEIR NEPHEW, JOSEPH, WHO

HAD BECOME AN ORPHAN.

HE WAS TWO WHEN HE CAME TO

LIVE THERE AND HE WAS THIN

AND MALNOURISHED.

I KNEW WE HAD TO TAKE HIM

IN, NO MATTER WHAT.

WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW WE WOULD

MANAGE FINANCIALLY, BUT WE

WANTED TO GIVE HIM A HOME.

Reporter: RIGHT AT THAT

TIME, CBN STARTED A PROGRAM

IN THE COMMUNITY TO HELP

KIDS LIKE JOSEPH.

EACH MONTH WE GAVE THE

FAMILY EXTRA FOOD TO HELP

HIM GAIN WEIGHT, AND WE GAVE

THEM PREMEDICAL CHECKUPS.

AND TO HELP HER RELIEVE SOME

OF THE FINANCIAL BURDEN AT

HOME, WE GAVE HER A GRANT TO

START A SMALL BUSINESS.

I ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE A

SMALL GROCERY STORE.

AND NOW WE'RE NOT JUST

SELLING FOOD, BUT WE SELL

SCHOOL SUPPLIES AND EVEN

UMBRELLAS.

Reporter: TODAY JOSEPH

IS A HEALTHY, ACTIVE

5-YEAR-OLD WHO LIKES PLAYING

AND GOING TO SCHOOL.

AND HE NO LONGER CALLS HER

AUNTIE.

HE CALLS HER MAMA.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR ALL

YOU DID TO HELP JOSEPH AND

OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY.

Gordon: THAT IS OUT OF

OUR CBN CENTER IN THE

PHILIPPINES.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

IT, A PORTION OF EVERY GIFT

OF "THE 700 CLUB" GOES TO

THE WORK OF CBN

INTERNATIONAL, WHICH DOES

EXACTLY WHAT YOU JUST SAW.

WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE.

IF THAT'S YOU, CALL US RIGHT

NOW AND SAY I WANT TO BE

PART OF THE "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'VE GOT FIVE MINUTES LEFT,

$14,000 TO GO.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

WE DON'T WANT TO MISS

ANYTHING ON THIS CHALLENGE.

WE WANT TO GO OVER THE TOP

ON IT.

SO GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, MOST OF US

CAN'T IMAGINE WATCHING OUR

CHILDREN CRY BECAUSE THEY

HAVEN'T EATEN ALL DAY.

BUT FOR A SINGLE MOM OF FIVE

IN HONDURAS, THAT WAS

ACTUALLY A DAILY OCCURRENCE

UNTIL "OPERATION BLESSING"

ARRIVED IN HER VILLAGE.

Reporter: 30-YEAR-OLD

LORDES WAS DEVASTATED WHEN

SHE LEARNED THAT HER HUSBAND

HAD DIED.

WE MISS HIM.yÑ

HE WAS A GOOD FATHER.

Reporter: BUT FINDING A

WAY TO FEED THEIR FIVE

CHILDREN SOON OVERSHADOWED

LORDES' GRIEF, AND SHE WAS

QUICKLY RUNNING OUT OF

TIME.

I TRIED, BUT I WAS NOT

ABLE TO FIND A JOB.

Reporter: TEARS BECAME

COMMON PLACE AT THE DINNER

TABLE WHEN THE CHILDREN WENT

WITHOUT FOOD.

CHURCH MEMBERS CAME BY

OCCASIONALLY TO BRING FOOD

TO LORDES AND HER FAMILY,

BUT THAT WAS A TEMP

TEMPORARY CONDITION.

BUT "OPERATION BLESSING"

CAME AND HELPED HER SET UP A

BUSINESS SELLING SHOES AND

CANDLES AND OTHER CLOTHING

IN HER NEIGHBORHOOD.

NOW WITH MY NEW BUSINESS,

I CAN GIVE MY CHILDREN

WHATEVER THEY NEED, FOOD,

MEALS.

BEFORE THIS, I WAS WITHOUT A

SINGLE DOLLAR.

Reporter: AND BECAUSE

"OPERATION BLESSING" TAUGHT

HER HOW TO MANAGE THE SMALL

BUSINESS, LORDES IS ABLE TO

BUY NEW ITEMS TO RESELL.

I THANK "OPERATION

BLESSING" WITH ALL OF MY

HEART BECAUSE YOU'RE A GREAT

BLESSING FOR ME AND MY

FAMILY.

Terry: A YOUNG MOTHER

OF FIVE, UNEXPECTANTLY LOST

HER HUSBAND, AND HERE SHE IS

TRYING TO FEED HER CHILDREN,

TRYING TO PARENT THEM WELL,

TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING TO

SUPPORT THEM.

YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE RIGHT

IN THE MIDST OF HER NEED

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

THAT'S THE KIND OF THING WE

DO EVERY DAY ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO SEE YOUR

MONEY GO THAT FAR ANYWHERE

ELSE TODAY.

SO, PLEASE, LET US HEAR FROM

YOU TODAY.

1-800-759-0700.

GORDON?

Gordon: WHEN SAMUEL'S

GRANDFATHER DROPPED HIM OFF

AT AN ORPHANAGE, HE THOUGHT

HE WAS GIVING HIS GRANDSON A

BETTER LIFE.

BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW THAT THE

ORPHANAGE WAS STRUGGLING TO

FEED THE CHILDREN WHO

ALREADY LOVED THERE.

Terry: SAMUEL WAS ONLY

TWO WHEN HIS PARENTS

ABANDONED HIM AND HE WENT TO

LIVE WITH HIS GRANDPA.

THE MAN CARED FOR THE BOY AS

LONG AS HE COULD, UNTIL

THERE WASN'T ENOUGH FOOD

LEFT FOR TWO.

THAT'S WHEN HE CAME TO LIVE

HERE, AT THIS HOME FOR

CHILDREN IN THAILAND.

THIS IS PASTOR THERASOR.

I FELT VERY SORRY FOR

HIM.

HE WAS VERY THIN.

MY HEART WAS MOVED WITH

COMPASSION POR HIM.

SO WE TOOK HIM IN.

Terry: BUT THE PASTOR

FACED A CHALLENGE OF HIS

OWN: HE HAD A GROWING NUMBER

OF CHILDREN COMING TO LIVE

THERE, AND THIS WAS THE ONLY

PLACE HE HAD FOR HIS STAFF

TO PREPARE MEALS FOR 16

PEOPLE.

WHEN CBN'S "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" LEARNED ABOUT THE

CHILDREN'S NEEDS, WE

PROVIDED THEM WITH MONEY TO

BUILD A NEW KITCHEN AND A

DINING ROOM, WHICH ALLOWS

ALL OF THE CHILDREN TO SIT

AND EAT TOGETHER.

AND SAMUEL IS NO LONGER TOO

THIN.

HE NOW GETS THREE MEALS A

DAY AND A WARM BED TO SLEEP

IN.

ALL THANKS TO CBN PARTNERS.

THANK YOU, CBN.
