MY FIRST WIFE DIED OF

BREAST CANCER.

AND WHEN SHE PASSED AWAY, I

REALLY FLOUNDERED.

AND I ENDED UP BEING

HOMELESS IN THE STREETS OF

TUCSON, ARIZONA.

Reporter: IN 2005,

SCOTT GOT OFF THE STREETS

AND THE DRUGS.

HE BECAME A CHRISTIAN AND

LEARNED ABOUT TITHING.

WHEN SCOTT GOT A JOB WORKING

CONSTRUCTION, HE DECIDED IT

WAS TIME TO PUT WHAT HE

LEARNED INTO PRACTICE.

IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT AT

FIRST, BECAUSE FOR ME TO

GIVE MONEY WHEN I WAS JUST

COMING OUT OF THE STREETS,

WAS A BIG DECISION.

DECISION.

WELL, RIGHT AWAY I STARTED

SEEING THE SUPER NATURAL

FAVOR OF GOD.

I WENT FROM LIVING IN A

HALFWAY HOUSE TO GETTING MY

OWN APARTMENT.

Reporter: SCOTT WANTED

TO HELP OTHERS IN RECOVERY,

AND STARTED PRAYING FOR A

LOCAL JOB AT A

REHABILITATION CENTER.

HE WAS HIRED A FEW MONTHS

LATER.

I PRAYED FOR A MONTH

STRAIGHT BEFORE THEY HIRED

ME.

> OTHERS HAD COLLEGE

DEGREES, WERE ALREADY

WORKING FOR THE COMPANY AND

WANTED THAT POSITION.

THEY HIRED ME BECAUSE THEY

SAW LOVE I HAVE FOR OTHER

PEOPLE AND HOW MUCH I WANTED

TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE GET

BETTER.

Reporter: SCOTT WAS

OFFERED THE POSITION OF

RESIDENT MANAGER IN 2006.

JUST THREE YEARS LATER, HE

RECEIVED ANOTHER PROMOTION.

GOD GAVE ME PROMOTIONS

THAT NO MAN COULD GIVE ME.

ME.

Reporter: IN 2010,

SCOTT BECAME A "THE 700

CLUB" PARTNER.

PAT ROBERTSON AND "THE

700 CLUB" WERE GOING OUT AND

IMPACTING THE WORLD IN AN

AMAZING WAY.

ESPECIALLY HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES.

HELPING POOR PEOPLE, HELPING

DISADVANTAGED PEOPLE, AND

BUILDING WELLS IN COUNTRIES

LIKE AFRICA WHERE PEOPLE ARE

STARVING TO DEATH ON A DAILY

BASIS.

I'M NOT ABLE TO TAKE

MISSIONARY TRIPS YET, BUT I

CAN CERTAINLY GIVE MONEY TO

"THE 700 CLUB" AND BE A PART

OF WHAT THEY'RE DOING ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

Reporter: TODAY SCOTT

IS HAPPILY MARRIED AND HAS A

FAMILY.

HE OWNS HIS OWN HOME AND

CONSIDERS GIVING ONE THE

KEYS TO HIS SUCCESS.

AS I FAITHFULLY TITHED

OVER THE YEARS, GOD SHOWED

ME THE INCREASE.

IT'S AN ABSOLUTE MIRACLE,

WHAT JESUS CHRIST HAS DONE

IN MY LIFE.

I LIVED

IN A CARDBOARD BOX

SEVEN AND A HALF YEARS AGO.

I LIVED IN DUMPSTERS, EATING

OUT OF DUMPSTERS, AND NOW

GOD HAS PROVIDED AN

INCREDIBLE HOME, WHERE I CAN

HAVE BIBLE STUDIES IN MY

HOUSE.

IT IS JUST -- IT'S NOT A

CASTLE, BUT IT IS MY

CASTLE.

I COULDN'T DO WHAT HE IS

DOING FOR ME.

IF YOU'RE OUT THERE

THINKING, I DON'T HAVE THE

RESOURCES TO TITHE, IF

YOU'RE OUT THERE THINKING,

IT IS TOO MUCH TO ASK, TRUST

GOD.

YOU TRUST HIM TO BE YOUR

ETERNAL SAVIOR, AND NOW

TRUST HIM WITH YOUR MONEY.

IT IS THE NEXT STEP.

IT IS THE ONLY STEP TO TAKE,

AND HE WILL NOT LET YOU

DOWN.
