[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE EUROPEAN DEBT CRISIS IS

FUELING VIOLENT RIOTS IN THE

STREETS OF SPAIN.

THE COUNTRY'S UNEMPLOYMENT

IS NOW AT 25%.

Terry: SPAIN'S ECONOMY

IS SO BAD THAT PEOPLE ARE

SCAVENGING FOR FOOD IN

DUMPSTERS.

DALE HERD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: ON THE

STREETS OF MADRID, IT LOOKED

LIKE REVOLUTION, WITH POLICE

AND CITIZENS ATTACKING EACH

OTHER.

IT WAS JUST AS VIOLENT IN

GREECE, WHERE RIOTERS IN

ATHENS HURTLED GASOLINE

BOMBS AT POLICE.

IT IS AS HOLIDAYS REMINDED

EUROPEANS THEY STILL FACE

THE WORST PRICES SINCE WORLD

WAR II.

THE STOCK MARKETS TANKED,

AND CURRENCY FELL.

AND INVESTORS SOMEHOW

THOUGHT OR HOPED EUROPE THAT

TURNED A CORNER.

IT CLEARLY HAS NOT.

A FORMER GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL

HAS ADMITTED THAT SPAIN IS

IN A CASE OF TOTAL

EMERGENCY.

AT A SOUP KITCHEN IN

BARCELONA, THEY STRUGGLE TO

FEED PEOPLE EACH WEEK.

AND INCREASING NUMBERS OF

SPANIARDS, TOO PROUD TO GO

TO A SOUP KITCHEN LIKE THIS

ONE, ARE LOOKING FOR FOOD IN

DUMPSTERS AT NIGHT.

SPAIN IS EUROPE'S FOURTH

LARGEST ECONOMY, AND HAS

BEEN DUBBED TOO BIG TO FAIL,

TOO BIG TO BAIL.

MEANING THE GOOD LIFE OF

CRADLE TO THE GRAVE

SOCIALISM THAT SPANIARDS

WERE ACCUSTOMED TWO, AND

THAT CREATED THE DEBT THAT

CAUSED THIS CRISIS, IS

COMING TO AN END.

SPAIN'S CENTRAL BANK SAYS

THE ECONOMY CONTINUES TO

SHRINK SIGNIFICANTLY,

SENDING MARKETS DOWN,

BORROWING COSTS UP, AND

PROTESTORS INTO COMBAT WITH

THE GOVERNMENT.

THIS IS JUST A POWERFUL

SIGNAL THAT WE ARE SENDING

TO POLITICIANS, THAT LET

THEM KNOW THAT THE SPANISH

BAILOUT IS SUICIDE.

Reporter: SPAIN RISKS

BEING DESTROYED BY A PERFECT

STORM, WITH INVESTORS TAKING

CAPITAL OUT OF THE COUNTRY

AS QUICKLY AS THEY CAN.

WHEN CAPITAL IS EXACTLY WHAT

SPAIN'S FINANCIAL SYSTEM

NEEDS TO SURVIVE.

DALE HERD, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: THE EUROPEAN

CRISIS IS ALREADY SHOWING UP

IN CHINA, AND CHINA IS

SAYING THEY DIDN'T KNOW HOW

BAD IT WAS OUT THERE.

AND SO THEY'RE LOOKING AT DO

THEY NEED TO STIMULATE THEIR

ECONOMY?

THE CRISIS IN EUROPE COULD

HURT THE ECONOMY HERE IN

AMERICA AS WELL.

WEWENDY GRIFFITH HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN NEWS

ROOM.

Wendy:

THE DEBT CRISIS

IN EUROPE IS JUST ONE REASON

THAT

C.E.O.s FROM

AMERICA'S LARGEST BUSINESSES

SAY THE U.S. ECONOMY IS

GETTING WEAKER.

THE EXECUTIVES ARE PART OF

THE GROUP CALLED THE ECONOMY

GROUP.

THEY CUT BACK ON PLANS TO

HIRE PEOPLE AND SPEND MONEY

IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

THEY'RE WORRIED ABOUT THE

GOVERNMENT NOT BEING ABLE TO

WORK OUT THE TAXES.

MASSACHUSETTS WILL APPEAL A

FEDERAL JUDGE'S MOTION TO

GRANT A CONVICTED MURDERER'S

SEX CHANGE SURGERY.

THE JUDGE RULED IT WAS THE

ONLY WAY TO TREAT HER GENDER

IDENTITY DISORDER.

CONFLICT WAS A MAN WHEN HE

WAS CONVICTED OF MURDERING

HIS WIFE IN 1990.

HE HAS RECEIVED HORMONE

TREATMENTS AND LIVES AS A

WOMAN IN A PRISON FOR MEN.

SOME OF THE STATE'S

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS SAY HE

ISN'T ENTITLED TO TAXPAYER

MONEY FOR THAT SURGERY.

A GROUP OF COMPUTER HACKERS

FROM THE MIDDLE EAST HAS

BEEN LAUNCHING CYBER-ATTACKS

ON SEVERAL MAJOR U.S. BANKS,

INCLUDING WELLS FARGO, BANK

OF AMERICA, CITIGROUP AND

OTHERS.

THE ATTACKS STOPPED SOME

COSTUMERS FROM GETTING INTO

THEIR CHECKING ACCOUNTS AND

OTHER ON-LINE SERVICES FOR A

WHILE.

BUT IT DIDN'T AFFECT ANY

MONEY.

JOSEPH LIEBERMAN TOLD C-SPAN

HE THOUGHT IRAN MIGHT BE

BEHIND THE ATTACKS.

BUT THE HEART ATTACKS DENIED

THAT.

THE ATTACKS HAVE NOT BEEN A

SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM, BUT

THEY HAVE RAISED SERIOUS

CONCERNS ABOUT BUSINESSES

AND ONLINE ACCOUNTS IN THE

FUTURE.

AND THAT'S A CONCERN.

Gordon: IT'S ALWAYS A

CONCERN.

AS FAR AS THAT VIRUS THAT

KNOCKED OUT IRAN'S

CENTRIFUGES AND SUPPOSEDLY

SET BACK THEIR NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

WE'RE ALL FACING SEVERAL

CHALLENGES, AND AMERICA

SEEMS TO BE ON MULTIPLE WAR

FRONTS, WHETHER IT IS

ECONOMIC DOWNTURNS, OR THE

CURRENT ATTACKS ON OURECTOMY

SEES.

OUR EMBASSIES.

IT ALL SEEMS TO BE AIMED

TOWARDS US.

AND NOW WE NEED TO PRAY.

AND WE NEED TO PRAY FOR

AMERICA.

AT CBN, WE'RE CALLING

CHRISTIANS IN AMERICANS TO

PRAY.

HERE IS OUR VERSE: IF MY

PEOPLE, WHO ARE CALLED BY MY

NAME, WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES

AND PRAY AND TURN FROM THEIR

WICKED WAYS, WELL, THEN I

WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND I

WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE PRAYING.

WE NEED TO DO THAT.

WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING THAT

ALL THE WAY TO THE

ELECTION.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: WHEN CYNTHIA

LOST HER JOB, SHE WAS OUT OF

WORK FOR SEVEN MONTHS.

BUT IN ALL OF THAT TIME, SHE

NEVER MISSED A CAR PAYMENT

OR A MORTGAGE PAYMENT.

AND HERE IS HOW SHE DID IT.

I WASN'T IN CONTROL OF MY

MONEY.

MY MONEY WAS IN CONTROL OF

ME.

I WOULD SEE SOMETHING AND I

WOULD GO GET IT.

I WORKED HARD FOR IT, AND

THOSE VOICES TELL YOU THAT

YOU DESERVE IT.

Reporter: THAT'S THE

MINDSET CYNTHIA HORTON

ADOPTED AS A YOUNG CAREER

WOMAN.

I WOULD CHANGE CARS EVERY

TWO YEARS BECAUSE I THOUGHT

THAT'S WHAT I WAS SUPPOSED

TO DO.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY,

AL MOST OF HER MONEY WENT

TO PAYING BILLS AND

CREDITORS.

I WOULD HAVE TO WRITE

DOWN, EVERYTHING I WOULD

SPEND.

IF ANYTHING CAME IN $2 OVER,

I WAS GOING TO BE IN A

BIND.

Reporter: SHE STARTED

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I STARTED HEARING THESE

PRINCIPLES THAT WERE VERY

FOREIGN TO ME, GIVE AND IT

WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU.

Reporter: SHE DECIDED

TO BECOME A "THE 700 CLUB"

PARTNER.

I REMEMBER WRITING THAT

FIRST CHECK.

IT WAS SUCH A HUGE STEP FOR

ME.

Reporter: CYNTHIA STILL

DIDN'T HAVE A HANDLE ON

SPENDING, AND HER DEBT GREW

TO $30,000.

AS LONG AS YOU CAN PAY

THAT PAYMENT, LIFE IS GOOD,

BUT LIFE WASN'T GOOD.

Reporter: THEN CYNTHIA

LOST HER JOB.

SHE SAYS HE HAD TO DEPEND

SOLELY ON GOD, WHICH WASN'T

ALWAYS EASY.

IT WAS VERY STRESSFUL FOR

ME.

ONE TIME I REMEMBER PACING

BACK AND FORTH.

I SAID, GOD, I NEED YOUR

HELP.

MY MORTGAGE PAYMENT IS

DRAFTING THE NEXT DAY.

I HAD $1.87 IN THE BANK.

Reporter: THAT DAY SHE

APPROVED A LOAN OFFER FOR

$6,000 AT A WHOPPING 27%

INTEREST.

CYNTHIA ADMITS, SHE WAS

TEMPTED.

I'M THINKING, THIS IS A

QUICK ANSWER TO MY PROBLEM.

AND GOD SAID, THIS MAY BE AN

ANSWER, BUT IT IS NOT YOUR

PAYMENT.

I WROTE VOID ON THAT CHECK.

I CAN'T TELL YOU TO THIS DAY

HOW THE MORTGAGE WAS PAID

THAT DAY.

Reporter: AND SHE

BELIEVES GOD TOLD HER TO

KEEP GIVING.

DURING SEVEN MONTHS OF

UNEMPLOYMENT, I NEVER MISSED

A HOUSE PAYMENT.

I NEVER MISSED A CAR

PAYMENT.

GOD WAS FAITHFUL.

Reporter: CYNTHIA

LANDED A JOB, AND SAYS GOD

STARTED SHOWING HER WAYS TO

PAY OFF HER DEBT.

ONE OF THEM WAS TO GIVE

MORE.

HE ASKED ME TO DOUBLE MY

GIVING TO CBN.

I SAID, DOUBLE MY GIFT?

I MEAN, 20 WAS A STRETCH,

AND 40 -- WOW.

Reporter: CYNTHIA

INCREASED HER GIVING, AND IN

TIME SHE PAID OFF ALL OF HER

DEBT AND IS STILL

DEBT-FREE.

SHE IS ALSO A MEMBER OF

CBN'S CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE.

SHE SAYS SHE HAS AN

UNDERSTANDING OF GIVING AND

FAITH THAT SHE NEVER HAD

BEFORE.

GOD SAYS GIVE 10%, BUT

EVERYTHING I HAVE IS GOD.

THAT'S ONE OF THE PRINCIPLES

I LEARNED.

WHEN I GIVE IT TO GOD, HE IS

GOING TO DO SO MUCH MORE

WITH IT THAN I EVER COULD

IMAGINE, AND THEN HE BLESSES

ME BACK ALONG THE WAY.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PRINCIPLE, THIS IS WHAT

CYNTHIA LEARNED, FROM LUKE

6 -- WE CALL IT THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY.

"GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

A GOOD MEASURE, SHAKEN DOWN,

PRESSED UNTO YOU WILL POURED

INTO YOUR LAP.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU."

WITH THE MEASURE YOU USE, IT

WILL BE MEASURED TO YOU.

THAT'S ONE OF THE PRINCIPLES

THAT GOD HAS PUT INTO THE

UNIVERSE.

AND WE HAVE TO LIVE IN

ACCORDANCE WITH HIS

PRINCIPLES.

SO CYNTHIA LEARNED IT, AND

SHE PUT IT INTO ACTION.

AND YOU JUST SAW WHAT GOD

DID.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

IT IS NOT LIKE THE THIRD LAW

OF MOTION, WHERE IT IS EQUAL

AND OPPOSITE.

IT IS INCREASED.

30, 60, SOMETIMES 100-FOLD

WILL BE MEASURED BACK TO

YOU.

SO MUCH SO YOU CAN'T CONTAIN

IT.

THAT'S GOD'S PROMISE, AND

THAT'S WHAT WE CALL THE LAW

OF RECIPROCITY.

IN OUR NEXT STORY, THIS IS

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

SCOTT ARNOLD, WHO IS NOW A

SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN WITH

A GREAT FAMILY AND BEAUTIFUL

HOME.

BUT JUST SEVEN YEARS AGO,

SCOTT WAS LIVING IN A

CARDBOARD BOX AND EATING OUT

OF A DUMPSTER.

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.

Gordon: WHAT A

WONDERFUL STORY.

WHAT A WONDERFUL

TURNAROUND.

GOD SPECIALIZES INTERNING

PEOPLE'S LIVES AROUND.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS TO DO.

HE WANTS TO SAVE YOU.

HE WAñTS TO BLESS YOU.

HE LOVES YOU.

HE DOESN'T WANT YOU WORRIED

ABOUT THE FUTURE.

HE DOESN'T WANT YOU WORRIED

ABOUT WHERE FOOD IS GOING TO

COME FROM, HOW YOU'RE GOING

TO CLOTHING.

HE WANTS TO REASSURE YOU HE

HAS GOT YOUR FUTURE.

HE DID THAT FOR SCOTT

BECAUSE SCOTT SAID I'M GOING

TO LIVE ACCORDING TO GOD'S

PLAN.

I'M GOING TO DO IT GOD'S

WAY, AND LET'S SEE WHAT

HAPPENS.

HE WENT FROM HOMELESSNESS TO

HAVING A HOME, JOB, FUTURE,

SECURITY.

IT IS ALL BECAUSE HE SAID I

MADE A DECISION TO TITHE.

NOW, IF I CAN GET A

DRUMROLL, I'VE GOT SOME

GREAT NEWS.

SOME EXISTING CBN PARTNERS,

JUST LIKE SCOTT, SAY I WANT

TO CHALLENGE TO GIVE.

CBN IS DOING SO MUCH AND SO

MANY PLACES AROUND THE

WORLD, OTHER OTHERS NEED TO

JOIN IN.

SO WE WANT TO CHALLENGE THEM

UP TO $100,000 FOR THE NEXT

30 MINUTES.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING IN

THIS.

WE ASK FOR INCREASE.

AND FOR THOSE WATCHING,

TO THEM, ENCOURAGE THEM, FOR

WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, YOU HEARD

SCOTT SAY IT, WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," YOU ARE

CHANGING LIVES OF PEOPLE ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

LIKE THIS LITTLE BOY AND HIS

ELDERLY GRANDFATHER IN

CHINA.

EVERY MORNING JI SHON

WATCHED OTHER CHILDREN IN

HIS VILLAGE LEAVE FOR

SCHOOL, AND WONDERED WHAT

FUN HE WOULD MISS OUT ON

THAT DAY.

HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE

FOURTH GRADE, BUT WASN'T

ABLE TO ATTEND CLASS.

JI SHON WAS BORN WITH A

SERIOUS HEART CONDITION.

I REALLY WANTED TO GO TO

SCHOOL AND PLAY WITH THE

OTHER KIDS, BUT I DIDN'T

HAVE ANY ENERGY TO EVEN WALK

THERE.

I GOT TIRED VERY EASILY.

Terry: JI SHON'S FATHER

DIED IN AN ACCIDENT, AND HIS

MOTHER ABANDONED HIM.

SO HE WENT TO LIVE WITH HIS

POOR, 71-YEAR-OLD

GRANDFATHER.

GRANDPA IS FRAIL HIMSELF,

BUT HE HAS DONE EVERYTHING

HE CAN TO PROVIDE FOR JI

SHON.

HE EVEN BORROWED BOOKS AND

TRIED TO TEACH HIS GRANDSON

SKILLS HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN

LEARNING AT SCHOOL.

I DIDN'T WANT HIM TO BE

ILLITERATE OR HE'LL END UP

WITHOUT HOPE FOR HIS

FUTURE.

Reporter: BUT THERE

WERE DAYS WHEN IT WAS HARD

FOR JI SHON TO EVEN EAT HIS

SOUP.

AS HE GOT WEAKER, IT BECAME

EVIDENT WITHOUT SURGERY, HE

WOULD DIE.

JI SHON IS SO YOUNG.

HE SOON DIE.

HE SHOULD LIVE.

I LOVE HIM.

HE IS EVERYTHING TO ME.

BUT I PERSONALLY DID NOT

HAVE ANY MONEY TO PAY FOR

HIS SURGERY.

EVEN WHEN I BORROWED MONEY

FROM RELATIVES, IT STILL

WASN'T ENOUGH.

Terry: JUST WHEN JI

SHON AND HIS GRANDPA WERE

ABOUT TO GIVE UP, A DOCTOR

CAME TO THEIR VILLAGE AND

TOLD THEM ABOUT CBN'S

MISSION TO SAVE CHILDREN'S

LIVES.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

WE HAD NEVER HEARD OF SUCH A

WONDERFUL THING ANYWHERE IN

THE WORLD.

Terry: CBN QUICKLY

ARRANGED HEART SURGERY FOR

JI SHON.

A DOCTOR REPAIRED THE HOLE

IN HIS HEART AND

REPOSITIONED HIS ARTERY.

THE SURGERY WAS A SUCCESS.

I'M STRONG NOW.

BEFORE I COULDN'T JUMP, AND

NOW I CAN JUMP HIGH.

AND I CAN RUN.

I LIKE PLAYING WITH MY

CLASSMATES AND EVEN DOING MY

LESSONS.

I'M REALLY HAPPY TO SEE

JI SHON SO HEALTHY, EVEN IF

HE IS A LITTLE NAUGHTY AND

CLIMBS UP THE WALL FROM TIME

TO TIME.

AT LEAST NOW HE CAN GO TO

SCHOOL AND I DON'T HAVE TO

WORRY ABOUT HIS FUTURE AT

ALL.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR BRINGING

MY FAMILY HOPE.

Terry: ISN'T THAT

WONDERFUL TO SEE, A LITTLE

BOY WHO HAD NO HOPE, NO

FUTURE, NO TOMORROW, AND HIS

GRANDFATHER IS DOING THE

BEST THAT HE COULD WITH THE

NEXT TO NOTHING THAT HE

HAD.

AND THEN YOU STEPPED RIGHT

INTO THE MIDDLE OF THAT, CBN

PARTNERS, AND YOU SAID WE'RE

GOING TO STAND WITH YOU

HERE.

YOU GAVE THIS LITTLE BOY

EVERYTHING HE NEEDED TO HAVE

A BRIGHT TOMORROW.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO

YOU.

TO THE REST OF YOU, IF

YOU'RE NOT A "THE 700 CLUB"

MEMBER, TODAY IS A GREAT DAY

TO JOIN.

AND JI SHON'S STORY IS ONE

OF THE REASONS WE'RE ASKING

YOU TO DO THAT.

HELP US TO REACH OUT TO

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.

IT IS NOT JUST CHINA.

IT'S EVERYWHERE.

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE EVERY YEAR HAVE THEIR

LIVES CHANGED BECAUSE PEOPLE

LIKE YOU CARE ENOUGH TO MAKE

A DIFFERENCE.

TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB," IT

IS 65 CENTS A DAY, JUST $20

A MONTH.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO DO THAT

RIGHT NOW BY CALLING THE

TOLL-FREE NUMBER ON YOUR

SCREEN, 1-800-759-0700.

YOU CAN ALSO LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

LET ME SO YOU SOME OF THE

OTHER CLUB LEVELS BECAUSE

MAYBE YOU'RE ALREADY A "THE

700 CLUB" MEMBER.

WOULD YOU CONSIDER GOING UP

TO "THE 700 CLUB" GOLD WITH

A GIFT OF $40 A MONTH.

WE ALSO HAVE THOUSAND CLUB

MEMBERS, $84 A MONTH.

AND THE 2500 CLUB, THAT'S

$209 A MONTH.

THE TOP OF THAT LIST -- OR I

SHOULD SAY THE BOTTOM, IS

THE FOUNDERS AT $417 A

MONTH.

AND THEN WE HAVE SOMETHING

CALLED THE CHAIRMAN'S

CIRCLE, THESE PEOPLE HAVE

THE ABILITY AND THE HEART TO

GIVE $10,000 OR MORE A

YEAR.

ASK GOD WHAT HE WOULD HAVE

YOU DO.

THEN MOVE FORWARD WITH

ANTICIPATION OF WHAT GOD IS

GOING TO DO IN YOUR LIFE.

HE REALLY DOES REACH OUT AND

BLESS US WHEN WE HELP

OTHERS.

GORDON?

Gordon: 5-YEAR-OLD

MARIA WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO

HAVING A BABY SISTER.

BUT WHEN THE BABY WAS BORN,

BOTH MARIA AND HER MOTHER

WERE SHOCKED BY WHAT THEY

SAW.

Reporter: 5-YEAR-OLD

MARIA REMEMBERS THE DAY SHE

CAME HOME AND SAW HER BABY

SISTER.

SIX MONTHS LATER, SHE IS

STILL SHOCKED BY THE CHILD'S

APPEARANCE.

SHE STILL WONDERS WHAT

HAPPENED.

HOW DID HIS MOUTH GET

LIKE THAT.

I TOLD MY DAUGHTER, NO, I

DIDN'T DROP HER.

I FELT SO BAD WHEN SHE SAID

THAT.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

BABY NAOMI WASN'T GAINING

WEIGHT BECAUSE IT WAS

DIFFICULT FOR HER TO DRINK

FROM THE BOTTLE.

SHE COULDN'T SWALLOW

ENOUGH MILK.

IT WAS COMING THROUGH THE

NOSE AND SHE WOULD CHOKE ON

IT.

Reporter: CARMAN'S

ALCOHOLIC HUSBAND HAD

ABANDONED THE FAMILY.

THAT'S WHEN THE

RESPONSIBILITY FELL ON HER.

THAT'S WHEN CBN OFFERED TO

HELP.

WE SET UP SURGERY IN PERU.

A FEW MONTHS AFTER THE

OPERATION, WE WENT BACK TO

SEE NAOMI.

EVERYONE IS HAPPY NOW

BECAUSE SHE CAN SMILE AND

DRINK HER MILK.

Reporter: WHEN

5-YEAR-OLD MARIA SAW HER

SISTER'S MOUTH AFTER

SURGERY, HER REACTION WAS

PRICELESS.

SHE SAID, MOMMY, MOMMY,

HER MOUTH IS HEALED.

LOOK, MAMA, IT'S ALL

BETTER.

I AM VERY HAPPY BECAUSE

NOW MY BABY SISTER CAN

SMILE.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR FIXING

NAOMI'S LIP.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

TRANSFORMED AND YOU'RE

THINKING, I WANT TO BE A

PART OF THAT, THEN HERE IS

THE QUESTION TO YOU: WHY

NOT?

WHY NOT?

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CHALLENGE.

WE'VE GOT 19 MINUTES LEFT ON

A $100,000 CHALLENGE.

WHICH MEANS WHEN YOU CALL

INSTANTLY DOUBLED.

GORDON?

Gordon: TODAY SHA

SHAQUITA OWNS A THRIVING

BUSINESS.

BUT NOT LONG AGO, SHE WAS

BEHIND ON HER BILLS AND

ABOUT TO BE EVICTED.

Reporter: SHAQUITA

OLIVER OWNS A HAIR STYLING

SALON JUST SOUTH OF

ATLANTA.

I LOVE WHAT I DO.

I LOVE THE PEOPLE.

I LOVE TO MAKE THEM PRETTY.

I LIKE PEOPLE THAT HAVE

ISSUES THAT COME IN THE DOOR

AND THEY SAY, CAN YOU FIX

ME?

AND I SAY, YEAH, I CAN FIX

YOU.

Reporter: HER SALON IS

A SUCCESSFUL, WHICH IS A

GOOD THING SINCE SHE IS A

SINGLE MOM RAISING FIVE

KIDS.

BUT BEFORE SHE OPENED HER

BUSINESS, SHE WAS IN A

FINANCIAL MESS.

HER MINIMUM WAGE JOB JUST

DIDN'T CUT IT.

IT WAS A LOT.

I WAS TRYING TO JUGGLE

PAYING THE RENT, PAYING THE

ELECTRICITY, PROVIDING

THINGS I NEEDED FOR THE

KIDS.

I JUST DIDN'T MAKE ENOUGH

MONEY.

Reporter: THREE MONTHS

BEHIND ON RENT AND FACING

EVICTION, SHAQUITA HAD NO

CLUE WHAT TO DO.

HER PASTOR ENCOURAGED HER TO

APPLY WHAT THE BOOK OF

MALACHI SAYS ABOUT MONEY.

THE PASTOR SAYS THAT IS

THE ONLY SCRIPTURE WHERE GOD

SAYS PUT ME TO THE TESTER.

I'LL OPEN THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR YOU OUT A

BLESSING YOU WON'T HAVE ROOM

TO RECEIVE.

I SAID, I NEED THE WINDOWS

OF HEAVEN TO OPEN UP FOR

ME.

I SAID, I'M GOING TO TRY

IT.

Reporter: A FEW WEEKS

LATER, SHE GOT A CALL FROM

WORK SAYING SHE RECEASED A

BONUS.

MY CHECK CAME THE DAY I

RECEIVED THE EVICTION.

I STUCK MY CHECKUP TO THEM

AND SAID YOU WON'T NEED TO

BE DOING AN EVICTION HERE.

Reporter: SHAQUITA THEN

RECEIVED A PROMOTION.

AND THE MORE SHE GAVE, THE

MORE SHE RECEIVED.

WHEN SHE FOUND "THE 700

CLUB," SHE WANTED TO GIVE

OVER AND ABOVE HER TITHE.

I'M GOING TO SOW INTO THE

"THE 700 CLUB" BECAUSE I

BELIEVE THEY'RE A GOOD

GROUND.

Reporter:

SHE TAUGHT

HER KIDS TO GIVE, TOO.

SO SHE ASKED IF THEY WANTED

TO SEND IN $20 A MATCH HER

FIRST PLEDGE.

THEY ALL SAID YES.

SHAQUITA IS GLAD HER

CHILDREN ENJOY TITHING AS

MUCH AS SHE DOES.

TITHING WORKS.

IT WORKED BEYOND WORKING.

Gordon: IT DOES WORK.

TITHING WORKS.

PROVERBS 19: "IF YOU HELP

THE POOR, YOU'RE LENDING TO

THE LORD AND HE WILL REPAY

YOU."

UNDERSTAND THAT GOD OWES

NOTHING TO NO MAN, BUT WHAT

HE DOES DO IS HE HONORS HIS

PROMISES.

AND HIS PROMISE IS WHEN YOU

GIVE, IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO

YOU.

WHEN YOU TITHE, HE WILL OPEN

UP THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN AND

POUR OUT A BLESSING THAT YOU

CAN'T CONTAIN.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT, IF

YOU WANT TO START A LIFE OF

GIVING, GIVING US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE A

PART OF WHAT CBN IS DOING

TODAY.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF

PREACHING THE GOSPEL AROUND

THE WORLD.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF

HELPING PEOPLE, EXTENDING

HANDS OF LOVE AND

COMPASSION.

IF THAT'S YOU, JOIN WITH

US.

AND JOIN WITH TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

SAYING YES, WE WANT TO DO

THIS.

WE WANT TO SEE THE GOSPEL GO

OUT.

WHEN TODD LOST HIS JOB, HIS

WIFE, DANA, WENT FROM

HOMEMAKER TO BREAD WINNER.

ALL SHE COULD FIND WERE

PART-TIME CLEANING JOBS.

AT ONE POINT, SHE HAD TO

FEED HER FAMILY WITH FOOD

OTHER PEOPLE HAD THROWN

AWAY.

Reporter: DANA NEVER

THOUGHT IT WOULD COME TO

THIS, THAT HER FAMILY

FINANCES WOULD HIT ROCK

BOTTOM.

IT HAPPENED WHEN HER HUSBAND

TODD LOST HIS JOB BECAUSE OF

A DRUG ADDICTION.

DANA STARTED CLEANING HOUSES

AND CORPORATE BUSINESSES

JUST TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

WHEN YOU LOSE EVERYTHING,

AND YOU HAVE NOT JUST

YOURSELF BUT YOUR CHILDREN

TO PROVIDE FOR, NOTHING IS

BENEATH YOU.

Reporter: MANY OF THE

APARTMENTS DANA CLEANED HAD

BEEN VACATED.

OFTEN SHE FOUND UNOPENED

FOOD THAT WERE LEFT BEHIND,

THAT SHE WAS ABLE TO TAKE

HOME.

THERE WERE LOTS OF THINGS

I WAS ABLE TO TAKE HOME AND

MAKE FOODS FROM.

I WAS REALLY TORN BETWEEN

ARE WE GOING TO HAVE GAS

MONEY TO GET TO THE NEXT JOB

THAT IS GOING TO GIVE ME

MONEY, OR ARE WE GOING TO

HAVE MILK FOR THEIR CEREAL

OR ANYTHING THEY MIGHT NEED

TOMORROW.

AND I CHOSE THE GAS.

Reporter: DANA WAS

DESPERATE FOR ANSWERS.

HE STARTED WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," WHERE SHE HEARD ABOUT

THE LAW OF RECIPROCITY.

WHAT IT TAUGHT ME IS I

COULD SOW INTO THE KINGDOM,

AND THAT OPENS THE DOOR FOR

GOD'S BLESSINGS TO START

MOVING IN OUR LIVES.

Reporter: DANA STARTED

TITHING OFF THE LIMIT SHE

MADE OFF OF CLEANING

APARTMENTS AND GIVING TO

CBN.

NOT LONG AFTER THAT, SHE

SAYS GOD PROVIDED HER WITH A

CLEANING MONTH THAT TOOK

CARE OF THE NEXT MONTH'S

RENT.

IT WAS EXACTLY $500 SHE

PAID ME FOR THAT JOB.

GOD KNEW MY NEED AND GOD

PROVIDED A WAY FOR ME TO

MEET THAT NEED.

Reporter: DANA SAYS GOD

ALWAYS PROVIDED THEIR NEXT

NEED.

EVENTUALLY, DANA'S HUSBAND

BEAT HIS DRUG ADDICTION AND

WENT BACK TO WORK.

GOD HAS BLESSED

EVERYTHING.

IT IS TRULY AN ABUNDANT

LIFE.

Reporter: TODAY THEY

BOTH HAVE STEADY JOBS AND

THEY BOTH GIVE TO CBN AS

"THE 700 CLUB" GOLD

MEMBERS.

JUST RECENTLY THEY BOUGHT

THEIR FIRST HOME.

WHEN WE WALKED IN THE

DOOR AND PUT THE KEY IN, I

CARRIED MY WIFE IN.

TO LOOK UP AND SEE THE LIGHT

COMING THROUGH THE BIG

WINDOWS IS UNREAL.

I ASKED FOR A POND, AND GOD

GAVE US A LAKE.

SO ME AND MY SON GO FISHING

A LOT.

WE ALL GO FISHING, BUT GOD

GAVE US THIS HOUSE.

MATTHEW 6: 33, WHEN YOU

SET YOUR DESIRES ON THE

LORD, HE KNOWS OUR NEEDS AND

GIVES US SO MUCH MORE.

Gordon: MATTHEW 6:

"DON'T WORRY ABOUT HAVING

ENOUGH FOOD OR DRINK OR

CLOTHING.

YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER ALREADY

KNOWS ALL OF YOUR NEEDS, AND

HE WILL GIVE YOU ALL OF YOUR

NEEDS FROM DAY TO DAY."

IT IS CONDITIONAL, IF YOU

LIVE FOR HIM, AND MAKE THE

KINGDOM OF GOD YOUR PRIMARY

CONCERN.

AND DANA DID THAT.

SHE WAS GOING THROUGH SOME

VERY TOUGH TIMES.

AND SHE SAID, I'M GOING TO

PUT GOD FIRST AND SEE WHAT

HE DOES FOR ME, AND GOD CAME

THROUGH.

AND HE WILL DO THAT FOR YOU

IF YOU SAY, I'M GOING TO

START PUTTING HIM FIRST.

I'M GOING TO SEEK THE

KINGDOM FIRST AND SEEK THE

EXPANSION OF THE KINGDOM.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, THEN HE

BLESSES YOU.

GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE A

PART OF IT.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF "THE

700 CLUB."

IT IS

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY,

$20.

SOME CAN GIVE HIGHER, AND

THERE IS THE GOLD CLUB, $40,

AND THE THOUSAND CLUB, $84,

AND THEN WE HAVE WHAT WE

CALL CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE THAT, ASK

FOR IT, HOW YOU CAN BE PART

OF THE CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE.

GIVE US A CALL.

WHATEVER LEVEL GOD IS

SPEAKING TO YOU, NOW IS THE

TIME TO DO IT.

WE'VE GOT 12 MINUTES AND 10

SECONDS TO GO.

WE WANT TO GO WAY OVER THE

TOP ON THIS.

SO GIVE US A CALL NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, CLEAN

WATER IS HARD TO COME BY IN

WESTERN INDIA.

UNTIL RECENTLY, PEOPLE IN

ONE VILLAGE ACTUALLY HAD TO

FIGHT EACH OTHER JUST TO GET

IT.

Reporter: TENSIONS

BUILD EVERY DAY AS THEY HIKE

TO THEIR ONLY SOURCE OF

WATER.

THEY KNEW THEY WOULD HAVE TO

FIGHT AGAINST TIME AND EACH

OTHER.

WE WOULD GO OVER THE

PIPELINE TO GET WATER.

BECAUSE WE KNEW WE DIDN'T

HAVE MUCH TIME BEFORE THE

POLICE WOULD CHASE US OFF.

WE KNEW IT WAS WRONG, BUT WE

COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT

WATER.

Reporter: THE INDIAN

GOVERNMENT TRIED TO DRILL A

WELL AT THE VILLAGE, BUT

THEY NEVER STRUCK WATER.

FIESTA AND HIS FAMILY WERE

DISAPPOINTED.

SOON THEY FOUND HOPE IN

ANOTHER FORM.

IN THE YEAR 2010, MY SON

FELL SICK.

OUR PASTOR FOUND OUT ABOUT

HIM AND VISITED OUR HOME.

HE PRAYED FOR OUR SON, AND

HE ASKED US TO PUT OUR TRUST

IN JESUS.

Reporter: HIS SON WAS

HEALED, AND FIESTA'S ENTIRE

FAMILY BECAME CHRISTIANS.

THAT'S WHEN THEY STARTED

PRAYING FOR A CLEAN WATER

SOURCE CLOSE TO THEIR HOME.

SOON AFTER OUR PRAYERS,

CBN CAME TO OUR VILLAGE.

PEOPLE WERE ACTUALLY

WONDERING IF WATER WOULD

ACTUALLY COME OUT OF THE

PUMP.

THEN IT HAPPENED, WATER CAME

OUT.

MANY PEOPLE ACCEPTED JESUS

AS THE ONE TRUE GOD.

NOW WE DON'T HAVE TO FIGHT

OVER WATER, AND WE CAN LIVE

IN PEACE.

THANK YOU, CBN.

Terry: WATER, A SOURCE

OF LIFE PHYSICALLY AND

SPIRITUAL LIFE AS WELL CAME

TO THIS VILLAGE.

AND HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?

IT HAPPENED BECAUSE PEOPLE

LIKE YOU AND M AND ME SAID

WE WANT TO PUT OUR LIVES ON

THE LINE, OUR PRAYERS ON THE

LINE, AND WE WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

AND YOU DO THAT WHEN YOU

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

YOU CAN'T DO IT ALONE, I

CAN'T DO IT ALONE, BUT

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A HUGE

DIFFERENCE.

THAT'S WHY TODAY WE'RE

ASKING YOU TO GO TO YOUR

AND DOOM, AND REMEMBER, GOD

$100,000 CHALLENGE.

8 MINUTES AND 33 SECONDS TO

GIVE US A CALL.

IN GUATEMALA, MANY PEOPLE

CAN'T AFFORD BASIC HEALTH

CARE.

SO FOR ONE FAMILY, A VISIT

FROM "OPERATION BLESSING"

MEANT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

LIFE AND DEATH.

Reporter: 7-YEAR-OLD

IRWIN WANTED TO PLAY LIKE

THE OTHER KIDS.

HE SIMPLY WASN'T ABLE TO.

WHEN I RUN, THE HERNIA

PAIN GOT EVEN WORSE, SO I

STOPPED PLAYING.

Reporter: IRWIN HAS HAD

THE HERNIA SINCE BIRTH, BUT

ONLY RECENTLY IT HAS GOTTEN

WORSE.

THE PAIN BECAME SO SEVERE HE

HAD TO STOP GOING TO SCOL.

TO SCHOOL.

HIS MOM HAD TO QUIT HER JOB

TO STAY HOME WITH HIM.

IT HAS BEEN DIFFICULT

SINCE I QUIT MY JOB.

Reporter:

I WANTED TO WORK SO MY

MOM COULD ALWAYS BE HERE

WITH MY LITTLE BROTHER.

Reporter: WHEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" LEARNED

ABOUT THE PROBLEM, WE

ARRANGED FOR THE BOY TO HAVE

THE SURGERY.

A FEW WEEKS LATER, IRWIN WAS

AS GOOD AS NEW.

THE DOCTORS TOLD ME I'M

ALREADY HEALED AND CAN SPRAY

OR JUMP.

THAT'S WHY I AM SO HAPPY.

I GIVE THANKS TO

"OPERATION BLESSING" BECAUSE

THANKS TO YOU, MY SON

RECEIVED THE SURGERY.

MY LITTLE BROTHER IS

HEALED THANKS TO "OPERATION

BLESSING."

NEWS FOR YOU ABOUT AMERICA'S

FUTURE.

IT IS ALL HERE IN PAT

ROBERTSON'S LATEST

D.V.D., "GOD'S PLAN FOR

AMERICA."

AND HERE IS WHAT PEOPLE ARE

ALREADY SAYING ABOUT IT.

AS PAT WAS TEACHING THE

SCRIPTURE THAT HE USED WAS

SO ESSENTIAL FOR US TO

UNDERSTAND GOD'S PLAN.

WHAT WE'RE GETTING FROM OUR

NATION'S LEADERS IS DOOM AND

GLOOM, REALLY.

BUT PAT'S TEACHING ON GOD'S

PLAN FOR AMERICA SEWS US

THAT WE STILL HAVE HOPE.

THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR

TEENAGERS, FOR COLLEGE-AGED

STUDENTS, FOR WORKERS,

COUPLES, SENIOR CITIZENS.

GOD IS GRACIOUS AND

MERCIFUL, READY TO FORGIVE,

SO THERE IS HOPE FOR THE

FUTURE.

GOD MAKES PROMISES AND HE

KEEPS HIS PROMISES.

Wendy: ONE OF MY

FAVORITE SCRIPTURES,

JEREMIAH 29: 11: GOD SAYS, I

KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR

YOU.

PLANS TO PROSPER YOU.

PLANS TO GIVE YOU HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU HOPE

TODAY.

HE IS THE GOD OF ALL HOPE.

THERE IS NOTHING TOO HARD

FOR HIM.

I BELIEVE THE BEST IS YET TO

COME FOR YOU, FOR ME, FOR

AMERICA.

WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU

TODAY WITH PAT'S NEW

TEACHING, "GOD'S PLAN FOR

AMERICA, HOW TO PREPARE FOR

THE DAYS AHEAD."

THIS IS OUR FREE GIFT TO YOU

MILLIONS OF AMERICANS ARE

OUT OF WORK, BUT ONE L.A.

TRUCK DRIVER HAS NO PROBLEM

FINDING A JOB, AND YOU'RE

ABOUT TO SEE WHY.

Reporter: RON PUTS IN

LONG HOURS POURING CONCRETE

IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.

BUT HE DOESN'T MIND.

HE IS HAPPY TO BE EMPLOYED.

BUT HE ALWAYS FINDS TIME TO

WATCH ONE OF HIS FAVORITE

SHOWS, "THE 700 CLUB."

I LOVE IT.

I TRUST IT.

I TRUST CBN'S PERSPECTIVE

AND OUTLOOK.

Reporter: WHEN HE FIRST

FOUND THE PROGRAM, HOWEVER,

HE DOESN'T BELIEVE THE

LESSON ON TITHING, BUT HE

EVENTUALLY CHANGED HIS

MIND.

AS THE YEARS WENT ON, I

WAS, LIKE, NO, THE LORD

NEEDS THE MONEY.

Reporter: HE PLEDGED

$20 A MONTH, AND THAT WAS A

STRETCH BECAUSE HE LOST HIS

JOB AND WAS RELYING ON

UNEMPLOYMENT AND ODD JOBS,

BUT HE GAVE ANYWAY.

IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE RON

LANDED NOT ONE TRUCKING JOB,

BUT TWO.

I JUST KEPT GETTING

WORK.

I NOTICED EVERYBODY ELSE WAS

NOT WORKING, BUT I AM.

I ATTRIBUTE IT TO THE

TITHING.

GOD SAID, TRUST ME AND SEE

IF I DON'T OPEN UP THE

WINDOWS OF HEAVEN.

Reporter: AND HE LOVES

TO SEE "OPERATION

BLESSING."

THEY DO GREAT THINGS FOR

PEOPLE.

IT IS A SMALL AMOUNT OF

MONEY TO GIVE EVERY MONTH.

Reporter: AND RON HAS

BEEN FAITHFUL TO GIVE EVERY

MONTH, NO MATTER WHAT.

MY TITHE GOES OUT BEFORE MY

RENT.

Reporter: AND FOR THOSE

WONDERING IF THE PRINCIPLE

WILL WORK FOR THEM, RON HAS

THIS TO SAY:

THAT IS WHAT GOD

PROMISES.

IT'S IN THE BIBLE.

WHEN YOU OBEY HIS WORD, YOU

GET HIS BLESSINGS.

TERRY?

Terry: IN COUNTRIES

LIKE EGYPT, IT IS DIFFICULT

FOR A WOMAN TO BE THE FAMILY

BREAD WINNER.

THE WOMAN IN THIS NEXT STORY

WORKS HARD TO SUPPORT HER

DISABLED HUSBAND, BUT SHE

MAKES LESS THAN $2 A WEEK.

Reporter: ALNA IS A

WIFE AND MOTHER AND SOLE

SUPPORTER OF HER FAMILY.

HER HUSBAND WORKED AS A

FIELD WORKER UNTIL HE WAS

ACCIDENTALLY CAUGHT ON

FIRE.

WHEN HE WAS MAKING TEA,

SOMEONE CARELESSLY FLEW

GASOLINE ON THE FIRE AND IT

BLEW UP.

MY HUSBAND WAS BURNED ALL

OVER HIS BODY.

Reporter: HER HUSBAND

WAS DISABLED AND COULDN'T

WORK.

SHE HAD TO FIND A WAY TO

MAKE MONEY.

SO SHE BOUGHT AN OLD CHURN.

EVERY DAY HER NEIGHBORS

BRING HER FRESH MELT AND SHE

SEPARATES IT INTO BUTTER ON

ONE SIDE AND MILK ON THE

OTHER.

BUT THE MACHINE IS VERY OLD

AND BROKE, SO SHE ONLY EARNS

ABOUT $1.50 A WEEK.

I THOUGHT IT WOULD HELP

ME FEED MY CHILDREN BECAUSE

EVERY DAY THEY GO TO SCHOOL

HUNGRY.

MY NEIGHBORS WILL SOMETIMES

GIVE MY BREAD CRUMBS, MIXED

WITH BITS OF CHEESE, TO FEED

MY CHILDREN.

Reporter: THE LAST TIME

THE MACHINE BROKE, IT COST

THE EQUIVALENT OF THREE

MONTH'S WAGES TO GET IT

FIXED.

SHE PAID IT OFF.

SO WE'RE GOING TO PAY OFF

HER DEBT AND GIVE HER A

CLEAN SLATE.

RIGHT NOW WE'RE ON OUR WAY

TO THE MARKET TO GET HER A

MACHINE THAT WOULDN'T

BREAK.

WHEN ALNA AND HER HUSBAND

SAW US COMING BACK, THEY

WERE EXCITED TO SEE WHAT WE

BROUGHT WITH US.

HERE IS YOUR BRAND NEW

MACHINE.

Reporter: ANYONE BRIA

BEFORE WE FINISHED SETTING

UP THE NEW MACHINE,

NEIGHBORS WERE ALREADY

COMING OVER WITH FRESH MILK

TO SEPARATE.

WHEN MY NEIGHBORS FOUND

OUT I GOT THE MACHINE, THEY

WERE COMING FROM HERE AND

THERE.

SO WORK AND COSTUMERS -- AND

I'M SO HAPPY.

Reporter: WE'RE HELPING

HER BUILD HER BUSINESS, AND

NOW SHE HAS A MACHINE THAT

IS FASTER AND MORE

EFFICIENT, SO SHE'LL BE

MAKING MORE MONEY THAN SHE

EVER HAS BEFORE.

WITH THE ADDED INCOME AND NO

DEBT, HER FAMILY WON'T GO

HUNGRY ANYMORE.

GOD BE WITH YOU AND BLESS

YOU, AND KEEP YOU BENEATH

THE SHAD GO O SHADOW OF HIS

WINGS.

AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

THE MACHINE.

Terry: HELPING OTHERS

WHO HELP THEMSELVES.

THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS WE

GORDON?

Gordon: OKAY.

POVERTY IS A WAY OF LIFE FOR

MOST GYPSY FAMILIES IN THE

UKRAINE.

THE WINTERS ARE BRUTAL, AND

ONE FAMILY WAS CLOSE TO

FREEZING UNTIL THEY GOT SOME

HELP FROM CBN.

Terry: HERE IN UKRAINE,

ABOUT 200 VERY POOR GYPSY

FAMILIES LIVE IN A VILLAGE

WEST OF THE CARPATHIAN

MOUNTAINS.

THEY DO THEIR BEST TO KEEP

WARM, BUT THEY DON'T HAVE

BLANKETS, WARM CLOAMTION,

CLOTHES OR GOOD HEATING

SYSTEMS FOR THEIR HOMES.

WE HAVE AN OLD STOVE THAT

BARELY WORKS AND DOESN'T

KEEP US WARM.

WHEN MY SON GOT COLD, HE

WENT VERY COLD TO THE STOVE

AND GOT BURNED.

Reporter: MISHA AND

VERA HAVE THREE CHILDREN,

AND A FOURTH IS ON THE WAY.

THEY CAN BARELY AFFORD FOOD,

AND DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY TO

PREPARE FOR THE HARSH

WINTER.

EVEN THE WATER IS

FREEZING IN OUR HOME.

LOOK, IT JUST FREEZES AND

TURNS INTO ICE.

OUR CHILDREN ARE NEVER

WARM, AND THEY GET SICK ALL

OF THE TIME.

Reporter: THIS OLD

STOVE IS THEIR ONLY HEAT

SOURCE.

AND IT PRODUCES DANGEROUS

AMOUNTS OF SMOKE INSIDE.

WHEN CBN LEARNED ABOUT THESE

FAMILIES, WE TOOK THEM WARM

CLOTHES, BLANKETS, WOOD, AND

NEW STOVES.

NOW IT'S VERY EASY TO

PREPARE HOT MEALS FOR MY

CHILDREN.

THEY EAT WELL AND FEEL FULL

AND WARM.

THIS IS ALL SO NICE.

Terry: THE KIDS WERE

ESPECIALLY HAPPY ABOUT

GETTING GOOD BOOTS.

AND MISHA WAS AMAZED AT HOW

MUCH WARMER THE HOUSE IS

WITH THE NEW STOVE.

LOOK HOW MUCH FIRE IT

GIVES.

CAN YOU SEE IT?

IT IS SO WARM AND COZY IN

OUR HOUSE.ú

THE STOVE DOESN'T SMOKE AND

OUR KIDS WON'T GET SICKH

ANYMORE.

MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU FOR

YOUR KINDNESS.

THANK YOU.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

THAT.

YOU'RE DOING THAT.

WE'RE DOING IT IN YOUR

NAME.

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, JOIN

INCREDIBLE, WHAT CAN HAPPEN,

WHEN PEOPLE GET TOGETHER AND

FAMILY IN CAIRO.

LET'S HELP THE GYPSIES IN

LET'S GO OVER TO KRISTI.

Kristi: THANK YOU,

GORDON, BETWEEN THE BAD

ECONOMY AND THE BICKERING

POLITICIANS, YOU MAY BE, I

DON'T KNOW, SOMEWHAT

DISCURRENT ABOUT THE STATE

OF THE UNION.

BUT GUESS WHAT?

YOU SHOULDN'T BE.

WHY?

BECAUSE PAT ROBERTSON

EXPLAINS WHY IN HIS NEW

TEACHING SERIES CALLED

"GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA."

PEOPLE ARE LOVING IT, AND

THEY'RE BEING ENCOURAGED BY

IT.

IN FACT, THIS IS WHAT

THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT IT.

Kristi: YOU KNOW WHAT I

LOVE ABOUT THIS?

BECAUSE IT IS SO

INFORMATIVE, IT REALLY

TEACHES US KIND OF HOW TO

PRAY AND WHAT WE NEED TO

PRAY FOR.

LISTEN, WE'VE GOT A LITTLE

OVER 30, NOT QUITE 40 DAYS

INTO THE ELECTION, SO WE

NEED TO PRAY FOR THE STATE

OF OUR COUNTRY.

WHEN?

NOW.

AND THIS IS GOING TO REALLY

KIND OF HELP YOU TO KNOW

WHAT DIRECTION -- KIND OF TO

HELP YOU OUT A LITTLE BIT.

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU,

1-800-759-0700.

THAT'S THE NUMBER THAT YOU

CALL WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO

BECOME A "THE 700 CLUB"

PARTNER.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

IT'S SIMPLE.

YOU LITERALLY PUT YOUR HAND

IN YOUR POCKET, AND GET YOUR

CHANGE, PAT USUALLY HOLDS UP

TWO QUARTERS, A NICKEL AND A

DIME.

WHAT IS THAT 65.

65 CENTS.

WE CAN FIND THAT UNDER THE

SEAT OF A CAR.

I JUST FOUND IT IN MY CAR.

YOU TAKE THAT MONEY, AND YOU

KNOW WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH

IT?

SOW IT INTO THE MINISTRY OF

CBN, AND LIVES WILL BE

CHANGED.

IF YOU'RE NOT A CBN PARTNER,

COME ON.

PICK UP THE PHONE AND JUST

CHOOSE TO BECOME ONE TODAY.

IT IS, LIKE I SAID, 65 CENTS

A DAY.

TERRY?

Terry: ALL OVER THE

WORLD, "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

PROVIDES FOOD, THEY PROVIDE

SHELTER, AND EDUCATION FOR

AT-RISK CHILDREN, LIKE THESE

TWO ORPHANED SISTERS WHO

LIVE IN SOUTH AFRICA.

Reporter: WHEN RHONDA'S

MOTHER DIED A FEW YEARS AGO,

SHE WAS FORCED TO TAKE CARE

OF HER LITTLE SISTERS.

IT HURT SO MUCH WHEN SHE

DIED.

Reporter: RELATIVES

JUST LET THE GIRLS FEND FOR

THEMSELVES.

IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT.

NOBODY CARED IF WE HAD FOOD

TO EAT OR NOT.

Reporter: THEN THEY

FOUND PEOPLE WHO DID CARE.

THEY FOUND A CHILDREN'S HOME

SUPPORTED BY "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

THE CENTER IS HOME FOR

DOZENS OF ORPHANED OR

ABANDONED KIDS.

IT IS LIKE WE COULD START

OR LIVES ALL OVER AGAIN.

THE PEOPLE HERE BECAME OUR

NEW FAMILY.

THEY TOOK GOOD CARE OF US.

NOW I CAN DO ALL OF MY

HOMEWORK AND I'M GETTING

GOOD GRADES IN SCHOOL.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING US AND

GIVING US A PLACE TO LIVE.

Terry: I AM ASTONISHED

THAT THE COURAGE AND THE

STRENGTH OF CHILDREN AROUND

THE WORLD WHO ARE IN

DESPERATE NEED AS THEY TRY

TO SIMPLY LIVE.

YOU ALLOW US TO COME

ALONGSIDE OF THEM, BLESS

THEIR LIVES, GIVE THEM HOPE

AND A FUTURE, EDUCATE THEM,

AND TEACH THEM ABOUT THE

LOVE OF THEIR FATHER.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

THAT'S THE KIND OF THING YOU

DO WHEN YOU BECOME A PARTNER

WITH THOUSANDS OF OTHERS WHO

ARE OUT TO CHANGE THE

WORLD.

GORDON?

Gordon: WHEN JOSE

WALKED INTO A FOOD PANTRY,

SHE WAS THERE JUST FOR THE

FREE GROCERIES.

BUT INSTEAD, HE LEFT WITH A

WHOLE NEW LIFE.

Reporter: JOSE

RODRIGUEZ IS A FULL-TIME

TRUCK DRIVER.

SO HE HAS SEEN MOST OF THE

UNITED STATES THROUGH THE

WINDOW OF HIS 18

18-WHEELER.

I NEVER EVEN THOUGHT

ABOUT GOING TO WORK, WORKING

FOR A LIVING.

IT NEVER CROSSED MY MIND.

Reporter: HE HAD

TROUBLE HOLDING A JOB AND

PROVIDING FOR HIS FAMILY.

THEN HE FOUND A FLIER FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PARTNER, "HEART OF

COMPASSION."

I WENT TO RECEIVE THE FOOD

AND STUCK WITH THEM.

LITTLE DID I KNOW GOD WAS

USING THAT, THE FOOD BANK,

TO GET A GRIP ON ME.

AT THE STORE, EVERYTHING

IS EXPENSIVE, LIKE THE

FRUITS AND THE VEGETABLES.

AND THAT'S WHAT I LIKE

BECAUSE I AM THE COOK.

I KNEW THERE WAS GOING TO BE

SOMETHING HEALTHY FOR MY

CHILDREN AND MY HUSBAND.

IT IS A BLESSING,

ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE

UNEMPLOYED.

ALWAYS ON TUESDAY WE KNEW

THAT "OPERATION BLESSING,"

"HEART OF COMPASSION," THAT

WAS SOMETHING LIKE CLOCK

WORK.

Reporter: IN ADDITION

TO RECEIVING FOOD, JOSE WAS

DEVELOPING A RELATIONSHIP

WITH JESUS CHRIST.

IT'S LIKE YOU GET

REENERGIZED.

IT MEANS A LOT.

NOT JUST THE FOOD THEY GIVE,

BUT THE WORSHIP AND HOW THEY

BRING GOD INTO OUR LIVES.

THE LORD WAS DOING

SOMETHING, BREAKING HIM.

I THOUGHT HE WOULD NEF BE

TH BE -- NEVER BE THE WAY

HE IS OUT, PRAISING GOD.

Reporter: JOSE

STRAIGHTENED HIS LIFE OUT

AND FOUND FULL-TIME WORK AS

A TRUCK DRIVER.

HE GIVES THANKS TO GOD AND

THE PRAYERS OF HIS FAMILY.

HIS BOSSES ARE ALWAYS

TELLING HIM, GET ME ANOTHER

DRIVER JUST LIKE YOU, ONE

WHO FLOWS GOD KNOWS GOD,

JUST LIKE YOU.

Reporter: AND JOSE IS

GRATEFUL FOR THE HELP HE AND

HIS FAMILY RECEIVED IN THEIR

TIME OF NEED.

THERE IS A LOT OF HUNGER

OUT THERE.

THANK GOD FOR "OPERATION

BLESSING."

Gordon: AND WE'RE

FEEDING THREE MILLION PEOPLE

EVERY MONTH.

ALL MADE POSSIBLE BECAUSE

YOU CARE.

WE HAD A SQUEAKER, WE HAD

$150,000 ON THE CHALLENGE.

AGAINST THAT YOU GAVE

$150,000.

THANK YOU.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALM 41:

"BLESSED IS HE WHO CONSIDERS

THE POOR.

THE LORD WILL DELIVER HIM IN

TIME OF TROUBLE."

FOR TERRY, FOR WENDY, FOR

KRISTI, FOR ME, FOR ALL OF

US, GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN.
