The 700 Club - January 23, 2013

The Parkers’ were faithful tithers but they racked up a lot of credit card debt. They learned how to get out of debt by watching Pat's teachings and now they are debt free. Read Transcript


[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

ANOTHER BRUTAL COLD WAVE IS

HITTING MUCH OF THE COUNTRY,

AND IT IS BRINGING

TEMPERATURES WELL BELOW

ZERO.

Terry: THIS FREEZING

SNOW AND COLD IS MORE THAN

JUST UNCOMFORTABLE, IT IS

ALSO DANGEROUS.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THE

STORY.

I DON'T EVEN WANT TO GO

OUT OF THE HOUSE.

VERY COLD.

IT'S LIKE NEEDLES

STICKING IN YOUR FACE.

Reporter: MORE THAN

100 MILLION PEOPLE ARE

WAKING UP IN AN ICE BOX THIS

MORNING.

WINDCHILL ADVISORIES HAVE

BEEN POSTED IN 15 STATES,

FROM THE MIDWEST TO THE EAST

COAST.

ON TUESDAY, THE WINDCHILL IN

MAINE BROUGHT TEMPERATURES

TO 50 BELOW.

AROUND THE GREAT LAKES,

-40°.

AND IN NORTH CAROLINA, 10

BELOW.

THE EXTREME COLD IS ALREADY

BEING BLAMED FOR AT LEAST

FOUR DEATHS.

BLINDING SNOW CAUSED A

150-CAR PILEUP IN OHIO.

AND PEOPLE WORKING OUTSIDE,

LIKE CONSTRUCTION WORKERS,

ARE AT RISK OF HYPOTHERMIA

OR FROSTBITE.

YOU CAN EXPERIENCE

FROSTBITE WITHIN FIVE TO 10

MINUTES OF BEING OUTSIDE.

Reporter: EVEN INSIDE,

TEMPERATURES CAN MAKE THINGS

UNCOMFORTABLE.

IT SIMPLY FROZE THE WATER

SERVICE IN THE HOUSE.

YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING.

PRETTY MUCH, YOU GO TO WASH

YOUR HANDS, AND YOU CAN'T

EVEN DO THAT.

NO COFFEE, NO TOILET.

Reporter:

METEOROLOGISTS SAY THE

WEATHER IS LIKELY TO GET

EVEN WORSE.

WITH EVEN COLDER CONDITIONS

COMING IN BY THE END OF THE

WEEK.

THIS AIR MASS THAT HAS

SET IN FROM THE PLAINS ALL

THE WAY TO THE MID-ATLANTIC

AND THE NORTHEAST, IS SOME

OF THE COLDEST WEATHER WE'VE

SEEN IN AT LEAST A COUPLE OF

YEARS.

Reporter: TEMPERATURES

IN THE NORTHEAST AND THE

WEST ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN

BELOW FREEZING UNTIL AT

LEAST THE WEEKEND.

Gordon: IF YOU'RE

LIVING IN THAT COLD, PLEASE

STAY INSIDE AND STAY SAFE.

IT MAY BE COLD IN MANY PARTS

OF THE COUNTRY, BUT

SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY

CLINTON COULD BE TAKING SOME

HEAT ON CAPITOL HILL TODAY.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY.

Lee: MRS. CLINTON

FACING TOUGH QUESTIONS ABOUT

LIBYA.

SHE IS FINALLY TESTIFYING ON

THE ATTACK ON THE U.S.

EMBASSY IN BENGHAZI.

CLINTON POSTPONED HER

TESTIMONY LAST MONTH DUE TO

A CONCUSSION AND BLOOD CLOT

NEAR HER BRAIN.

THE REPUBLICANS CLAIM THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IGNORED

SIGNS OF DETERIORATING

SECURITY IN LIBYA, AND

REFUSED REQUESTS FOR MORE

SECURITY THERE.

AND THEY PO ALSO SAY THEY

PORTRAYED AN ACT THE

TERRORISM OF OVER AN

ANTIISLAMIC VIDEO.

CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS ON

THE SURPRISING RESULTS OF AN

ELECTION THAT SAW THE

HIGHEST TURNOUT IN MORE THAN

A DECADE.

Reporter: AS EXPECTED,

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU COMBINING

WITH THE CUTA PARTY RETAINED

THE MOST SEATS.

THE RESULTS PUT ISRAEL'S

CENTER RIGHT AND CENTER LEFT

RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE AT 60

APIECE.

THE EMERGE OF THE CENTRAL

LAHUD PARTY.

THAT'S THE BIG NEWS, IT

IS KIND OF A CENTER

PICTURE.

THAT'S WHAT THE ISRAELI LEC

TOR RATE IS LOOKING LIKE.

Reporter: THE RESULTS

ARE NETANYAHU WILL MOST

LIKELY BE THE NEXT PRIME

MINISTER.

BUT OTHERS THINK LAPID CAN

HELP HIM.

OTHERS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT

WHAT THE NEXT ISRAELI

GOVERNMENT WILL LOOK LIKE

AND HOW LONG IT WILL LAST.

ISRAELIS MIGHT BE GOING TO

THE POLLS AGAIN IN THE NOT

TOO DISTANT FUTURE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

TEL AVIV.

Lee: GORDON, BACK TO

YOU.

Gordon: AFTER AN

ELECTION, YOU HATE TO BE

PREDICTING THERE WILL BE

ANOTHER ELECTION VERY

QUICKLY.

BUT THAT IS THE

PARLIAMENTARY SYSTEM, AND IF

YOU CAN'T HOLD THE MAJORITY,

YOU'RE BACK TO THE POLLS.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: FOR YEARS, JIM

AND CAROLINE PARKER LIVED ON

CREDIT CARDS.

THE ONLY FINANCIAL PLAN THEY

HAD WAS BUY NOW, PAY LATER.

WELL, THAT PLAN DIDN'T QUITE

WORK OUT, AND THE PARKERS

FOUND THEMSELVES UNDER A

MOUNTAIN OF DEBT.

Reporter: FOR A LONG

TIME, CAROLINE PARKER HAD

HER OWN IDEAS ABOUT HOW GOD

BLESSED PEOPLE.

I WAS GOING TO

MANUFACTURE SOME PROSPERITY

BY USING MY CREDIT CARDS.

YOU GET GOODS AND

MERCHANDISE, RIGHT?

AND AS LONG AS YOU CAN PAY,

THIS WAS HIS WAY.

THIS IS THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN BEING OPENED TO ME.

Reporter: CAROLINE AND

HER HUSBAND, JIM, BEGAN

TITHING WHEN THEY FIRST

MARRIED.

AND THEY ALSO USED CREDIT

CARDS TO GET THINGS THEY

NEEDED OR WANTED FOR THEIR

GROWING FAMILY.

THEIR CONSUMER DEBT REACHED

$15,000.

IT WAS KIND OF

DEPRESSING, BECAUSE IT PUTS

YOU DOWN.

BECAUSE HERE YOU ARE, YOU'RE

MAKING PLENTY MONEY, BUT YOU

DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY.

YOU KNOW, TO DO THE THINGS

YOU NEED TO DO, BUT IT'S

BECAUSE IT IS ALL GOING TO

CREDITORS.

Reporter: ONE DAY JIM

AND CAROLINE GOT A WAKEUP

CALL WHEN THEY COULDN'T PAY

THEIR MORTGAGE ON TIME.

THAT'S WHEN THEY STARTED

WATCHING PAT ROBERTSON TEACH

ABOUT A SYSTEM TO PAY OFF

THEIR CREDIT CARDS.

PAT SAID GO TO THE

SMALLEST ONE AND TAKE THAT

AMOUNT AND GO THE NEXT ONE.

TAKE THAT AMOUNT AND GO TO

THE NEXT ONE.

AND THAT'S WHAT I DID.

Reporter: THE PARKERS

PUT THAT LESSON INTO

PRACTICE AND STARTED TO

AGGRESSIVELY PAY DOWN THEIR

CREDIT CARD DEBT.

THEY ALSO JOINED "THE 700

CLUB."

I LOVE WHAT THEY DO.

WHEN I LOOK AT "700 CLUB"

AND THE WELLS THAT THEY

BUILD, THE "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," "OPERATION

BLESSING," THE GOSPEL IS

GOING OUT OVER THE

AIRWAVES.

Reporter: THE PARKERS

FINALLY PAID OFF THEIR

CREDIT CARDS, AND NOT A

MOMENT TOO SOON.

CAROLINE'S COMPANY DECIDED

TO LEAVE THE STATE WHERE

THEY LIVE, AND SHE WAS LEFT

WITHOUT A JOB.

THE COMPANY PAID HER ENTIRE

YEAR'S SALARY AS PART OF HER

SEVERANCE PACKAGE.

THAT WAS A BLESSING

BECAUSE THERE WERE PEOPLE

BEING FIRED WITH NOTHING.

AND THE SECOND THING WAS, I

DIDN'T HAVE ANY DEBT.

Reporter: TODAY JIM AND

CAROLINE ARE RETIRED, AND

THEY SAY THEY HAVE FOUND

PEACE AS THEY HAVE LEARNED

TO TRUST GOD WITH THEIR

FINANCES.

GOD IS ABLE TO SUPPLY,

AND HE IS ABLE TO GIVE YOU

MORE THAN WHAT YOU COULD

EVER GIVE OUT.

Gordon: AND YOU MAY BE

LIKE JIM AND CAROLINE, AND

DON'T, FOR A MINUTE, THINK

YOUR POSITION IS HOPELESS.

YOU CAN GET OUT FROM A

MOUNTAIN OF DEBT, BUT WHAT

YOU NEED TO DO IS A LITTLE

PLASTIC SURGERY, WHERE YOU

TAKE THOSE CARDS AND CUT

THEM UP.

AND THEN SAY, OKAY, IF I

DON'T HAVE THE CASH, I'M NOT

BUYING IT.

AND THEN DO JUST WHAT JIM

AND CAROLINE DID, PICK THE

LOWEST ONE AND START PAYING

THAT OFF.

AND ONCE IT IS PAID OFF, ADD

THAT PAYMENT INTO THE NEXT

ONE.

AND ONCE THAT'S PAID OFF,

ADD THAT PAYMENT INTO THE

NEXT ONE.

AND OVER TIME, YOU'LL FIND

THAT YOU CAN GET OUT OF

DEBT.

AND YOU AVOID THE TRAP THAT

THE BIBLE WARNS ABOUT, THAT

THE BORROWER IS THE SERVER

OF THE LENDER.

NOW, WHEN YOU START TO LIVE

LIFE THE WAY GOD WANTS YOU

TO DO, YOU RUN INTO THIS

WONDERFUL PROMISE FROM PSALM

128: "HOW JOYFUL ARE THOSE

WHO FEAR THE LORD.

ALL WHO FOLLOW HIS WAYS.

YOU WILL ENJOY THE FRUIT OF

YOUR LABOR, HOW JOYFUL AND

PROSPEROUS YOU WILL BE."

THAT IS THE LORD'S BLESSING

FOR THOSE WHO FEAR HIM.

RESOLVE IN 2013 THAT YOU'RE

GOING TO DO IT GOD'S WAY.

WHEN YOU DO IT HIS WAY, THEN

YOU RUN RIGHT INTO THE

PROMISES THAT HE HAS FOR

YOU, THAT HE WANTS YOU TO BE

JOYFUL.

HE WANTS YOU TO ENJOY THE

FRUIT OF YOUR LABOR.

WELL, WHEN JIM FREEBURG GOT

LAID OFF, HE SPENT THE NEXT

TWO YEARS TRYING TO FIND

WORK.

THEN ONE DAY JIM'S WIFE GAVE

HIM SOME ADVICE THAT GOT HIM

TWO JOB OFFERS THE VERY NEXT

DAY.

Reporter: JIM FREEBERG

AND HIS WIFE, JANET, ENJOY

LIVE IN COLORADO.

JIM HAS ALWAYS HAD STEADY

WORK IN CONSTRUCTION, BUT

AFTER 30 YEARS, HE WAS LAID

OFF.

I DIDN'T ANTICIPATE I

WOULD BE IN THAT SPOT IN MY

LIFE.

Reporter: JANET STAGED

HOMES ON THE MARKET AND TOOK

A HIT, TOO.

THE COUPLE WENT THROUGH

THEIR SAVINGS AND STARTED

CUTTING CORNERS EVERY WAY

THEY COULD.

JIM SEARCHED FOR A JOB BUT

CAME UP EMPTY.

THERE WAS NO APPARENT

RELIEF ON THE RISE.

Reporter: FRIENDS AND

FAMILY HELPED THEM GET BY.

THERE WAS PROVISION, BUT

IT WAS HUMBLING PROVISION.

Reporter: AND THEN

JANET HAD A BREAKTHROUGH.

THE LORD WOKE ME UP ONE

MORNING WITH PSALM 23: 1:

"HE LEADS YOU, HE GUIDES

YOU, HE FEEDS YOU."

IT WAS NO LONGER THE JOB IS

MY PROVISION.

IT WAS HE IS MY PROVISION.

Reporter: JANET AND JIM

DECIDED TO TRUST GOD.

THEY TITHED OFF THE MONEY

PEOPLE WERE GIVING THEM AND

CONTINUED PARTNERING WITH

CBN.

EVERY TIME THAT WE WOULD

TITHE, THE LORD WAS FAITHFUL

TO GET US TO THE NEXT SPOT.

Reporter: FOR TWO

YEARS, THE FREEBERGS

CONTINUED TO HAVE JUST

ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY THEIR

BILLS EVERY MONTH, BUT JIM

WAS STILL FRUSTRATED.

I WOULD SAY, I DON'T

THINK THE CONSTRUCTION

INDUSTRY WILL EVER RETURN.

JANET MADE A SUGGESTION TO

ME, MAYBE WHAT YOU'VE BEEN

SAYING ABOUT THE

CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY --

MAYBE YOU'VE BEEN IN,

EFFECT, CURSING YOURSELF

WITH YOUR OWN WORDS.

SO I ASKED THE LORD TO

FORGIVE ME FOR THE WORDS

THAT I HAD SPOKEN.

AND TO GIVE ME A SECOND

CHANCE.

Reporter:

A FEW WEEKS LATER, THE

COUPLE HEARD A MESSAGE ON

DECLARING THE WORD OF GOD.

WE DROVE TO A NEARBY

MOUNTAIN TOP, AND WE READ

GOD'S PROMISES FOR US AND

DECLARED THEM FOR OUR LIFE.

Reporter: THE VERY NEXT

DAY, JIM GOT TWO JOB

OFFERS.

I HAD BEEN WORKING FOR

TWO YEARS, ON MY OWN,

STRUGGLING TO GET SOMEBODY

TO RETURN A PHONE CALL TO

ME.

SO GOD IS BIGGER THAN I

EVER GAVE HIM CREDIT FOR.

HE CAN DO THINGS THAT ARE

IMPOSSIBLE.

HE IS NOT AFFECTED BY THE

ECONOMY.

HE IS NOT AFFECTED BY

ANYTHING.

HE IS GOD.

Gordon: I LOVE WHAT JIM

AND JANET DID.

WHEN THEY STOPPED CURSING

THEMSELVES AND THEY ASKED

GOD, PLEASE FORGIVE US FOR

THAT.

GOD IS THE GOD OF SECOND

CHANCES.

HE IS THE GOD OF THIRD,

FOURTH, FIFTH, SIXTH,

SEVENTH CHANCES -- HE IS THE

GOD OF 70 TIME SEVEN

CHANCES.

THAT WHEN YOU TURN TO HIM

AND YOU ASK HIM FOR HELP, HE

WILL GIVE IT TO YOU.

AND HE CAN TURN ANY CURSE

INTO A BLESSING IF YOU JUST

LET HIM.

HERE IS THE PROMISES, FROM

DEUTERONOMY 23: "THE LORD

YOUR GOD TURNED THE CURSE

INTO A BLESSING FOR YOU

BECAUSE THE LORD YOUR GOD

LOVES YOU."

NOW, SOME OF YOU ARE DOING

THE SAME THING THAT JIM WAS

DOING.

YOU'RE TALKING BAD ABOUT THE

ECONOMY.

YOU'RE TALKING BAD ABOUT

YOUR SITUATION.

INSTEAD OF LOOKING TO THE

FUTURE, INTO WHAT GOD HAS

FOR YOU, AND EVEN LOOKING TO

WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU TODAY,

YOU WANT TO STAY TRAPPED IN

THE PAST AND YOU WANT TO

START THINKING, WHOA IS YOU,

IT IS ALL DOOM AND GLOOM.

LOOK TO HIM.

HE IS THE AUTHOR AND THE

FINISHER OF YOUR FAITH.

LOOK TO HIS PROMISES, AND DO

WHAT JIM AND JANET DID,

PRONOUNCE THE BLESSING OVER

YOURSELF.

READ THE PROMISES, BELIEVE

THE PROMISES, PROCLAIM THE

PROMISES, AND SEE IF IT WILL

HAPPEN TO YOU.

I'VE GOT SOME WONDERFUL

NEWS.

SOME CBN PARTNERS JUST LIKE

JIM AND JANET SAY WE LOVE

GIVING.

WE LOVE LIVING A LIFE OF

GENEROSITY.

WE LOVE THE PROMISES THAT

GOD HAS FOR THOSE THAT

GIVE.

SO THEY WANT TO CHALLENGE

YOU.

AND THEY'LL MATCH YOUR

GIFTS, DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, UP

TO $50,000, FOR THE NEXT 30

MINUTES.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST ASK FOR

BLESSING OVER THIS.

LORD, WE PROCLAIM THE

PROMISES, THE GREAT AND

PRECIOUS PROMISES, THAT

YOU'VE MADE.

THAT THEY'RE ALL YES AND

AMEN FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN

CHRIST JESUS, AND SO WE

PROCLAIM YOUR PROMISES OVER

YOUR CHILDREN, AND WE ASK

FOR BLESSING FOR THEM.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

ALL IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

CHALLENGE.

WHAT THAT MEANS IS EXISTING

GORDON?

Gordon: HURRICANE SANDY

WAS ONE OF THE MOST

EXPENSIVE NATURAL DISASTERS

IN AMERICAN HISTORY.

MANY STORM SURVIVORS DON'T

EVEN HAVE THE MONEY TO CLEAN

UP WHAT IS LEFT OF THEIR

HOMES.

THAT'S WHY "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS IN NEW YORK AND

NEW JERSEY, BRINGING HOPE

AND HELP TO THOSE WHO NEED

IT.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN A

DEVASTATING WINTER FOR THE

RESIDENTS OF BREEZY POINT,

NEW YORK.

ALTHOUGH HURRICANE SANDY HIT

IN LATE OCTOBER, MANY PEOPLE

HERE ARE STILL WITHOUT

WATER, ELECTRICITY, AND

BASIC NECESSITIES.

PRETTY MUCH LOST MOSTLY

EVERYTHING.

THE ELECTRIC WAS UNDER

WATER.

ALL OF MY APPLIANCES AND

FURNITURE AND BEDS, AND MOST

OF THE CLOTHING WAS

DAMAGED.

Reporter: BUT THE

PEOPLE IN BREEZY POINT

HAVEN'T TO FACE THIS

DISASTER ALONE.

SINCE THE FIRST CRITICAL

HOURS FOLLOWING THE STORM,

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

BEEN HERE, HELPING BREEZY

POINT STORM VICTIMS

RECOVER.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAD

A HUGE TRAILER IN OUR

COMMUNITY HERE, AND THEY

OFFERED TO COME OVER AND

HELP REMOVE THE DEBRIS AND

THE COUCHES AND THE

FURNITURE, BECAUSE I

WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO

DO ANY OF IT WITHOUT THE

ASSISTANCE.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING"

DIRECTOR OF DISASTER RELIEF,

JODY GETTIES SAYS THEY

WORKED ON OVER 400 HOMES.

A LOT OF THAT WAS THE

GUTTING OF THE HOMES.

BUT NOW WE'RE REBUILDING.

WE'LL BE TAKING TWO HOUSES

AT A TIME, THREE HOUSES AT A

TIME, BUT AS WE PROGRESS ON

EACH HOME, OTHER PEOPLE SEE

THE PROGRESS AND IT GIVES

THEM COURAGE AND STRENGTH,

KNOWING THEY CAN REBUILD

THEIR LIVES.

Reporter: AS THE PEOPLE

OF BREEZY POINT REBUILD

THEIR LIVES, THEY WILL NEVER

FORGET THOSE WHO CAME IN

THEIR NEED.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

ANOTHER WAY OF GOD SHOWING

YOU THAT IT WILL BE OKAY,

THAT WE'LL GET THROUGH IT.

WHAT WILL BE WILL BE, AND

WE'LL BE ABLE TO COME BACK

AND HAVE EVERYTHING LIKE WE

HAD HAD IT BEFORE.

Gordon: THAT'S WHAT WE

WANT TO DO, AND WE'RE DOING

IT IN YOUR NAME.

THE WORLD, LIKE THIS COUPLE

IN CHINA.

SHORTLYLY AFTER THAT BABY'S

BIRTH, THEY WERE TOLD TO

START PREPARING FOR HIS

DEATH.

Terry: THE SHONS WERE

THRILLED WHEN THEY HEARD

THEIR SON WAS BORN, UNTIL

THEY TOLD HIM HE HAD A

DISEASE.

WHEN THE DOCTOR TOLD ME

HE HAD HEART DISEASE, MY

WORLD FELL APART.

IT WAS OUR WORST

NIGHTMARE.

I WAS SO WORRIED ABOUT MY

BROTHER.

EVERY TIME HE CRIED, I

CRIED, TOO.

Terry: AND HE CRIED ALL

OF THE TIME.

HE COULD NOT BREATHE.

AND HE WOULD CHOKE ON HIS

TEARS.

I WAS SO SCARED HE WOULD

CHOKE TO DEATH IN HIS

SLEEP.

Terry: THE HOLE IN

HOSHON'S HEART GREW BIGGER.

AND SINCE THEY COULD NOT

AFFORD SURGERY, THEY KNEW

THEY WOULD SOON LOSE THEIR

SON.

JUST AS THEY WERE ABOUT TO

GIVE UP HOPE, THEY HEARD

ABOUT CBN'S MISSION TO HELP

CHILDREN LIKE THEIRS.

WHEN CBN SAID THEY WOULD

HELP US WITH SURGERY, I

ALMOST SHOUTED WITH JOY.

THIS MEANT MY SON WOULD

LIVE.

Terry: A DOCTOR

REPAIRED THE HOLE IN

HOSHON'S HEART AND

REPOSITIONED HIS ARTERY.

TODAY, YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW

HOW CLOSE THIS PRECIOUS

LITTLE BOY ONCE CAME TO

LOSING HIS LIFE.

MY SON IS HAPPY AND

HEALTHY NOW.

I NEVER THOUGHT SUCH A

WONDERFUL THING WOULD HAPPEN

TO MY FAMILY.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVING

HEART FOR MY SON.

YOUR HELP HEALED MY BROKEN

HEART AND MADE ME WHOLE AND

STRONG AGAIN.

I LOVE MY LITTLE

BROTHER.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SAVING

HIS LIFE.

Terry: WHAT IF THAT WAS

YOUR LITTLE BOY?

WHAT IF YOU COULDN'T DO WHAT

NEEDED TO BE DONE TO SAVE

HIS LIFE?

YOU KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING

THAT COULD BE DONE, BUT YOU

JUST COULDN'T AFFORD IT?

LET'S GO OVER TO KRISTI.

Kristi: THANK YOU SO

MUCH, TERRY.

IF YOU COULD GET A GLIMPSE

OF LIFE AFTER DEATH, HOW

WOULD THAT CHANGE THE WAY

YOU LIVE NOW?

WE TALKED TO A FEW PEOPLE

WHO TEAF FACED THAT VERY

QUESTION AFTER THEY DIED AND

FOUND THEMSELVES IN HELL.

AND THEN THEY GOT A SECOND

CHANCE AT LIFE.

TAKE A LOOK.

I COULD HEAR THESE MOANS

AND THESE CRIES.

I COULD FEEL MY BODY

LEAVING.

IT WAS PITCH-BLACK DARK.

THAT'S THE MOMENT WHEN I

UNDERSTOOD WHAT DEATH WAS.

Kristi: CAN I TELL YOU

THAT THIS D.V.D. IS ONE OF

THOSE D.V.D.s THAT WILL

CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND IMPACT

YOUR LIFE FOR A LIFETIME.

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, I GOT

SAVED WHEN I WAS FIVE YEARS

OLD, WHEN OUR PARENTS TOOK

US TO CHURCH AND SHOWED US A

MOVIE ABOUT HELL, AND I CAME

HOME AND I SAID, MOMMY, I

WANT TO MAKE SURE I DON'T GO

THERE.

AND SHE SAID IF YOU ACCEPT

JESUS AS YOUR LORD AND

SAVIOR, AND CONFESS WITH

YOUR MOUTH, YOU WON'T.

AND I DID.

IF YOU DIED TODAY, DO YOU

KNOW WHERE YOU WILL GO?

YOU MAY BE SHAKING YOUR HEAD

AND SAYING, KRISTI, YES, I

DO KNOW, BUT MAYBE YOU'VE

GOT SPOUSES OR KIDS OR

FRIENDS THAT DON'T KNOW.

THEIR LIFE.

GORDON?

Gordon: IT IS PART OF

THE AMERICAN DREAM, BE YOUR

OWN BOSS.

GARY PARKS GOT THE 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 NEVER

COULD QUITE MAKE ENDS MEET.

HE WORKED SEVERAL PART-TIME

JOBS, INCLUDING WORKING AT A

GAS STATION AND BUILDING

WITH WELDERS.

SHARON REMEMBERS WHEN THEY

HAD TO BUY FOOD PAST THE

EXPIRATION DATE AT THE

DISCOUNT STORE.

MY SON WOULD GET OUT HIS

CEREAL AND GET READY TO PUT

IT IN, AND THERE WOULD BE

BUGS IN THERE CRAWLING

AROUND AND HE WOULD FREAK

OUT.

WE HAD AN ELECTRIC BILL

OF $25, AND WE WERE TRYING

TO FIGURE OUT WHERE WE WOULD

GET THE MONEY TO PAY THAT.

Reporter: SHARON

STARTED CLEANING HOUSES ON

THE SIDE.

YOU DO WHATEVER YOU DO

TO, SO YOU WORK.

Reporter: ONE DAY SHE

TURNED ON "THE 700 CLUB."

AND HE STARTED TEACHING

ABOUT THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

AND IT 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

THIS A TRY AND SEE WHAT IT

WOULD DO FOR ME.

Reporter: AND THAT'S

WHEN GARY SAYS GOD GAVE HIM

THE IDEA FOR HIS NEW

COMPANY, CLEANING UP

CONSTRUCTION SITES.

I SEEN A BRAND NEW HOUSE

BEING BUILT, AND

CONSTRUCTION STUFF WAS ALL

OVER THE YARD.

AND THE LORD SAID, YOU NEED

TO GO MAKE A CONTAINMENT AND

START HAULING THAT AWAY.

IN 30 DAYS, I MADE MORE

MONEY THAN I DID THE WHOLE

YEAR WORKING FOR THE

FORESTRY BUSINESS.

Reporter: THERE WAS SO

MUCH WORK, SHARON QUIT HER

CLEANING BUSINESS AND WENT

TO WORK FOR THE HAULING

COMPANY.

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: AND THE PARKS

ALSO TAUGHT THEIR SONS ABOUT

GIVING, AND TODAY KELLY IS A

PARTNER WITH HIS DAD IN A

NEW BUSINESS.

OUR PROFITS HAVE

TRIPLED.

AND EVERY YEAR IT SEEMS WE

HAVE MORE AND MORE WORK, AND

WE NEVER STOP.

ALL IT TOOK WAS THAT ONE

CHANCE AT GIVING.

I GUARANTEE YOU, GOD WILL

BLESS YOU.

JUST STEP OUT, AND HE WILL

MEET YOU RIGHT THERE.

WHEREVER YOU'RE AT, IF IT IS

EVEN A PENNY OR A DOLLAR, HE

WILL BLESS YOU.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE, FROM PROVERBS 3:

"KEEP MY COMMANDS IN YOUR

HEART, FOR THEY WILL PROLONG

YOUR LIFE MANY YEARS AND

BRING YOU PROSPERITY.

LET LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS

NEVER LEAVE YOU, AND THEN

YOU WILL FAVOR AND A GOOD

NAME IN THE SIGHT OF GOD AND

MAN."

LET LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS

NEVER LEAVE YOU.

SHARON AND GARY LEARNED THAT

FAITHFUL GIVING WAS THE

ANSWER.

AND IN RESPONSE, GOD STARTED

GIVING THEM TREMENDOUS IDEAS

THAT LED TO AN INCREASE THAT

IS UNBELIEVABLE.

AND THEN GUIDED THEM AT

SPECIFIC POINTS OF WHEN TO

SELL THE BUSINESS, WHAT TO

DO WITH THE PROCEEDS, HOW TO

INCREASE EVEN MORE, EVEN IN

THE MIDDLE OF THE

RECESSION.

GOD WILL DO THAT FOR YOU IF

YOU JUST SAY, I WILL BE

FAITHFUL IN GIVING.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT, GIVE

US A CALL, 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

IT IS JUST $20 A MONTH, 65

CENTS A DAY.

AND WHEN YOU CALL, ASK FOR

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING.

THE BANK DOES ALL OF THE

WORK.

THERE ARE NO CHECKS TO

WRITE, AND YOU KNOW YOUR

GIFT IS GOING TO COME IN

EVERY SINGLE MONTH.

ASK FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS WHEN

YOU CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

WELL, TODAY MANY AMERICANS

ARE JUST ONE PAYCHECK AWAY

FROM LOSING EVERYTHING.

FOR YEARS BILL AND TINA

WILSON LIVED THAT WAY, UNTIL

AN UNUSUAL GIFT HELPED THEM

INCREASE THEIR INCOME.

Reporter: A COUPLE OF

YEARS AGO, BILL WILSON WAS

THE COUNTY DEPUTY, AND TINA

WAS A STAY-AT-HOME MOM WITH

THEIR THREE BOYS.@ @

THE COUPLE WAS EXCITED ABOUT

THEIR GROWING FAMILY, BUT

DISCOURAGED ABOUT THREE

TIGHT BUDGET.

WE'RE LIVING FROM

PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK PRETTY

MUCH.

YOU LOOK AT YOUR BUDGET AND

YOU LOOK AT THE EXPENSES

GOING OUT VERSUS THE MONEY

COMING IN, AND YOU'RE, LIKE,

HOW IS THIS GOING TO

HAPPEN?

NOT KNOWING IF WE'LL HAVE

THE MONEY FOR FOOD, THE

MORTGAGE, IT WAS HARD.

Reporter: IN 2009, TINA

HEARD ABOUT "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND HEARD ABOUT THE

PRINCIPLE OF TITHING.

OFF AND ON WE WERE

TITHING.

WHEN WE COULD AFFORD, WE

WOULD TITHE.

THE LORD KEPT WORKING ON US

TO KEEP TITHING, WHETHER IT

WAS EASY FOR NOT.

I WAS CONVINCED FROM

WATCHING THE TESTIMONIES AND

READING THE BIBLE.

IT STARTED AS A PRAYER, TO

CONVINCE BILL, TO SHOW HIM

HOW THE PRINCIPLE WORKED.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY,

BILL AND TINA STARTED

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB"

TOGETHER REGULARLY, AND

DECIDED TO GIVE $20 A MONTH

TO CBN, ON TOP OF THEIR

TITHE.

MONTHS LATER, THEY RECEIVED

A GIFT THAT DRAMATICALLY

CHANGED THEIR INCOME.

TINA WAS LOOKING FOR OUR

FAMILY, A MILK COW.

Reporter: TINA BEGAN

LOOKING FOR A JERSEY COW

THAT COULD PROVIDE HER

FAMILY WITH FRESH DAIRY.

JERSEY COWS ARE SO CUTE,

WITH THEIR LONG EYELASHES

AND BIG, BROWN EYES.

SHE WENT ON LINE AND

FOUND A WEBSITE FOR JERSEY

ACRES.

TINA E-MAILED THIS LADY, AND

THE LADY E-MAILED BACK AND

ASKED TINA, ARE YOU A

CHRISTIAN?

I WAS, LIKE, THAT'S A

STRANGE QUESTION, AND WHY DO

YOU ASK?

AND SHE SAID, I HAVE BEEN

PRAYING ABOUT THIS COW THAT

I DON'T NEED.

I FEEL LIKE THE LORD WANTS

ME TO GIVE YOU THIS COW.

I WAS CRYING, BECAUSE IT WAS

AN ANSWER TO MY PRAYER, TO

SHOW THAT THE PRINCIPLE OF

GIVING AND TITHING WORKS.

Reporter: AFTER

STARTING THEIR FARM WITH

THEIR ONE COW, BOBBY JOE,

BILL AND TINA INCREASED

THEIR PLEDGE TO CBN, TO $40

A YEAR.

THEIR ONE MILK COW TURNED

INTO A BUSINESS, AND TODAY

THEY SELL MILK AND CHEESE.

BECAUSE IT WAS THE LORD'S

IDEA, HE MADE IT COME ABOUT,

SO WE PUT "J" IN FRONT OF

"T" AND "B."

THE LORD KNEW WE WOULD ENJOY

THE DAIRY FARMING.

THE PRAYERS STARTED AS BEING

FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT, NOT

OWING ANYONE, AND WE'RE ON

THAT ROAD.

IT IS AMAZING HOW MANY

PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED IN JUST

ONE BUSINESS.

YOU HAVE TO TAKE A STEP

OF FAITH.

I KNOW THAT THE LORD WILL

PREVAIL AND HE WILL ALWAYS

STEP UP.

TO ANYONE WHO ISN'T

CONVINCED, I WOULD SAY TO

JUST TRUST HIM.

HE IS THE GOD OF THE

UNIVERSE, AND WE'RE HIS

CHILDREN, AND HE WANTS TO

PROSPEROUS US AND NOT HARM

US.

AS A PERSONAL TESTIMONY, IT

WORKS.

Gordon: TRUST HIM.

THAT'S ALL HE REQUIRES.

ALL HE WANTS IS FOR US TO

TRUST IN HIM.

AND HERE IS THE PROMISE,

FROM PSALM 37: "TRUST IN THE

LORD AND DO GOOD.

THEN YOU WILL LIVE SAFELY IN

THE LAND PROSPER.

TAKE DELIGHT IN THE LORD,

AND HE WILL GIVE YOU YOUR

HEART'S DESIRE."

TINA HAD AN UNUSUAL HEART'S

DESIRE, I WANT A DAIRY COW.

AND THEY STARTED GIVING, AND

GOD STARTED BLESSING THEM,

AND THROUGH THAT ONE HEART'S

DESIRE, A WHOLE NEW BUSINESS

THAT CAME OUT THAT BLESSED

THEM AND BLESSED THEIR

FAMILY AND BLESSED THEIR

FINANCES.

IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU

JUST TRUST IN THE LORD.

IF YOU WANT TO START GIVING,

CALL US, 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IT'S ONLY $20 A MONTH, 65

CENTS A DAY, AND YOU JOIN

WITH TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE WHO WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE TODAY, THAT WANT

TO SEE THE GOSPEL PREACHED

AROUND THE WORLD, THAT WANT

OF DISASTER.

ALL OF IT MADE POSSIBLE

BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE YOU CARE

ENOUGH TO GIVE.

IF THAT'S YOU, GIVE US A

CALL, 1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, CAM PENG

OUT CA PENG -- CAMPING OUT

COULD BE FUN IN THE

SUMMERTIME, BUT RECENTLY I

MET A FAMILY WHO LIVED IN A

TENT ALL YEAR LONG, EVEN IN

THE WINTER.

THROUGH RAIN AND SNOW AND

TEMPERATURES THAT REACHED 20

BELOW ZERO.

I'M HERE IN UKRAINE, IN A

GYPSY CAMP.

THERE ARE 13 PEOPLE LIVING

INSIDE THIS TENT.

THIS IS RUSLAN, WHO IS ONE

OF THEM.

HE IS SEVEN YEARS OLD.

THERE IS A TWO-MONTH-OLD

BABY IN HERE.

RUSLAN IS WET TO THE CORE

BECAUSE IT IS A COLD, RAINY

DAY HERE.

THIS LITTLE FAMILY IS DOING

THEIR BEST TO MAKE A

LIVING.

YOU CAN SEE THE DAD IS

MAKING BASKETS OUT OF PIECES

OF TWIG THAT HE HAS GATHERED

FROM THE WOODS.

THE MOM, RIGHT NOW, IS OUT

GATHERING MUSHROOMS SO SHE

CAN BRING SOME FOOD HOME FOR

HER CHILDREN.

OUR GOAL IS TO BUILD A HOME

FOR THEM THAT WILL TAKE THEM

OUT OF THE COLD, OUT OF THE

RAIN, AND ALLOW THEM TO MAKE

IT THROUGH THE WINTER AND

MAYBE EVEN HAVE A GOOD LIFE

HERE IN UKRAINE.

WORKING WITH OUR CBN STAFF

IN UKRAINE, "ORPHAN'S

PROMISE" WAS QUICKLY ABLE TO

PUT TOGETHER A PLAN TO BUILD

A SHELTER FOR THIS FAMILY.

THE MOST EFFICIENT AND

TIMELY SOLUTION WAS A HOUSE

MADE OF METAL WITH A STRONG

WOOD FLOOR AND A THICK LAYER

OF INSULATION.

AN AIR-TIGHT WINDOW AND

DOOR, ALONG WITH A NEW

WOOD-BURNING STOVE, MAKES

THIS ONE OF THE BEST HOMES

IN THIS GYPSY COMMUNITY.

AND SOME BASIC FURNISHINGS

AND WARM BLANKETS WILL KEEP

THIS FAMILY COMFORTABLE ALL

WINTER.

DURING MY VISIT, WE WERE

ALARMED AT THE QUESTION OF

THE TWO-MONTH-OLD BABY BOY,

WHO HAD A TERRIBLE COUGH AND

FEVER.

HIS MOTHER WAS SO

MALNOURISHED, THAT NURSING

HIM JUST WASN'T ENOUGH.

THAT DAY WE GAVE HER FORMULA

AND MEDICINE FOR LITTLE

PETRO.

AND NOW HE IS NO LONGER

SICK, HAS PUT ON WEIGHT, AND

LOOKS MUCH HEALTHIER.

IN FACT, EVERYONE LOOKS

HEALTHIER AND HAPPIER.

IN ADDITION TO THE FATHER'S

BASKET-MAKING, WE HAVE PLANS

TO HELP THEM WITH A GARDEN

OR OTHER LIVELIHOOD THAT

WILL BRING IN ENOUGH MONEY

TO SUSTAIN THIS FAMILY.

I THANK GOD FOR THE HELP

YOU HAVE GIVEN US.

I COULDN'T EVEN DREAM THAT

SOMEONE COULD GIVE US SUCH A

HOUSE.

THANK YOU.

Terry: THESE ARE

HARD-WORKING PEOPLE, WHO

MOVE AROUND TO DIFFERENT

COUNTRIES IN THE AREA AS

CROPS NEED TO BE PICKED.

THEY'RE MIGRANT WORKERS, AND

THEY WORK VERY, VERY HARD,

BUT SOMETIMES IT IS JUST NOT

ENOUGH.

YOU ALLOWED US TO COME RIGHT

INTO THE MIDDLE OF THAT NEED

AND TO SOLVE A HUGE NEED,

NOT JUST FOR THOSE PARENTS,

BUT FOR THEIR CHILDREN AS

WINTER CAME UPON THEM.

YOU CAN KNOW RIGHT NOW,

TODAY, "700 CLUB" MEMBERS,

BECAUSE OF YOU, THEY'RE IN A

WARM HOME AND ARE ABLE TO

EAT AND PROVIDE FOR THEIR

FAMILY.

AND WE SAY THANK YOU FOR

THAT.

THIS KIND OF HELP IS WHAT

WE'RE EXTENDING TO PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE ASKING YOU

TO GO TO YOUR PHONE AND BE A

PART OF THAT.

Gordon: I'VE GOT SOME

$50,000 ON A CHALLENGE ISN'T

ENOUGH.

THEY WANT TO ADD $75,000 TO

IT, TAKING IT TO $125,000.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING ON

THIS.

WE ASK FOR WINDOWS IN HEAVEN

TO BE OPEN OVER THE DONORS

WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE TO

ISSUE THIS CHALLENGE.

FOR THOSE WATCHING, MAKING

DECISIONS RIGHT NOW, WE ASK

THAT YOU WOULD BLESS THEM

AND ENCOURAGE THEM.

DO IT ALL, LORD, FOR WE ASK

IT IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.

AND AMEN.

$125,000 ON A CHALLENGE.

20 MINUTES TO GO.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO

CALL US NOW, 1-800-759-0700.

IN HONDURAS, MANY PEOPLE

CAN'T AFFORD THE MOST BASIC

MEDICAL CARE.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING" SET

UP CLINICS WITH FREE DOCTORS

AND MEDICINE, AND FOR THE

BABY IN ONE VILLAGE, THAT

MEANT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

LIFE AND DEATH.

Reporter: WHEN

3-MONTH-OLD BRIAN WOKE UP

WITH A COUGH, HIS MOTHER

WASN'T TOO WORRIED AND

PREPARED SOME HOME

REMEDIES.

HOURS LATER, BRIAN GOT

WORSE.

HE BEGAN TO COUGH AND HAD

A FEVER.

THEN IT BECAME HARD FOR HIM

TO BREENL.

BREATHE.

I THOUGHT WE WERE LOSING

HIM, THAT HE WAS GOING TO

DIE.

I PANICKED.

I THOUGHT, WE ARE POOR.

WE DON'T HAVE MONEY FOR A

DOCTOR OR A CLINIC.

Reporter: THAT'S WHEN

THEY REMEMBERED A CLINIC IN

ANOTHER TOWN, THAT HAD

MEDICINE DONATED FROM AN

ORGANIZATION IN AMERICA.

BUT IT WAS ALREADY LATE AND

THE CLINIC WAS CLOSED.

THE NEXT MORNING MURACRUZ

RACED TO THE CLINIC.

WHEN I GOT THERE, I SAW

ALL OF THESE PEOPLE, BUT I

WAS SO DESPERATE, I RAN TO

ONE OF THE DOCTORS AND SAID,

HELP ME, MY SON IS DYING.

Reporter: A DOCTOR

QUICKLY CHECKED BRIAN AND

TOLD HIS MOTHER HE HAD

PNEUMONIA.

BUT AS SOON AS BRIAN

RECEIVED HIS FIRST BREATHING

TREATMENT, WITH MEDICINE

PROVIDED BY "OPERATION

BLESSING," HE STARTED TO

PERK UP.

THE DOCTOR THEN GAVE BRIAN'S

MOM STRONG ANTIBIOTICS, ALSO

GIVEN TO THE CLINIC BY

"OPERATION BLESSING."

THOSE ANTIBIOTICS SAVED

BRIAN'S LIFE.

THE DOCTOR TOLD ME WOULD

TO DO, AND I GAVE HIM ALL OF

THE MEDICINE.

Reporter: WITHIN A FEW

DAYS, BRIAN WAS FEELING MUCH

BETTER.

AND WHEN HIS MOM TOOK HIM

BACK TO THE CLINIC 10 DAYS

LATER, THE DOCTOR GAVE BRIAN

A CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO THANK

YOU FOR SAVING MY SON'S LIFE

WITH THE WONDERFUL

MEDICINE.

MY GOD BLESS "OPERATION

BLESSING."

Gordon: AND MAY GOD

BLESS YOU.

PLATE SAYS, "HAPPY

THAT'S WHAT GOD HAS FOR US

IN HEAVEN.

THE BIBLE SAYS IN THIS LIFE

WE'LL HAVE TROUBLE, BUT

HEAVEN, IT SAYS, IS A PLACE

OF NO MORE TEARS, NO MORE

SADNESS.

THAT'S WHAT GOD HAS FOR US.

BUT THE CHOICE IS OURS IN

THIS LIFE.

HOW DO WE MAKE THAT CHOICE?

WE EITHER CHOICE JESUS

CHRIST AS OUR SAVIOR, OR WE

Gordon: WHILE MANY

AMERICANS ARE STRUGGLING TO

FIND WORK, MARLENE CARTER

HAD THREE JOBS.

BUT AT THE END OF EVERY

MONTH, SHE STILL DIDN'T HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY HER

BILLS.

IF SOMETHING WAS GOING TO

SHUT OFF, THAT'S WHAT I

WOULD HAVE TO PAY.

IF SOMETHING ELSE WASN'T

GOING TO SHUT OFF, I

WOULDN'T PAY IT, BUT THEN

NEXT MONTH IT WAS GOING TO

SHUT OFF.

Reporter: MARLENE

CARTER'S LIFE WAS A

FINANCIAL CATASTROPHE.

SHE WORKED THREE JOBS AND

STILL COULDN'T PAY ALL OF

THE BILLS.

IT WAS A JUGGLING ACT.

Reporter: MARLENE BEGAN

PRAYING FOR A SOLUTION.

SHE ALSO STARTED WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

A LOT OF TIMES, AFTER MY

THIRD JOB, I WOULD HAVE TO

GO GROCERY SHOPPING LATE AT

NIGHT.

HERE I WOULD BE PUTTING AWAY

MY GROCERIES, AND I WOULD

HAVE THE TELEVISION ON IN

THE KITCHEN, AND CBN WAS

ON.

AND I JUST WAS FASCINATED.

Reporter: ONE OF THOSE

LESSONS WAS GIVING AWAY 10%

OF YOUR INCOME.

I REMEMBER THINKING, OH,

MY.

I WORK THREE JOBS AND I'M

STILL JUGGLING MY BILLS.

I DON'T SEE HOW I WOULD BE

ABLE TO COME UP WITH MONEY

JUST TO SEND IN FOUR A

DONATION.

IT JUST SEEMED ALL FOREIGN

TO ME.

BUT THEN I THINK THAT THE

LORD WAS CONVICTING ME TO

TRY IT.

Reporter: MARLENE GAVE

TO SEVERAL MINISTRIES,

INCLUDING TO CBN, AND

SOMEHOW WAS ABLE TO MAKE HER

MONEY STRETCH.

SOMEHOW ON PAPER IT

DIDN'T MAKE SENSE, AND I

HEARD PEOPLE TESTIFY TO

THAT, AND IT IS THE TRUTH,

AND IT'S, LIKE, THIS DOESN'T

ADD UP, BUT IT IS AMAZING

HOW THAT HAPPENS.

Reporter: THEN MARLENE

INCREASED HER GIVING, AND A

FEW MONTHS LATER LANDED A

NEW JOB, MAKING MORE THAN

ALL OF HER PREVIOUS THREE

JOBS COMBINED.

I WAS REALLY GRATEFUL,

TREMENDOUSLY RELIEVED.

Reporter: WHEN MARLENE

INCREASED HER GIVING AGAIN,

SHE GOT A PROMOTION.

HE SAID TEST ME ON THIS,

AND I WILL OPEN UP THE

WINDOWS OF HEAVEN AND POUR

OUT BLESSINGS, MORE THAN YOU

CAN CO CONTAIN, AND IT IS

THE TRUTH.

Gordon: IT IS THE

TRUTH.

AND IT SEEMS STRANGE, AND IT

SEEMED STRANGE TO MARLENE,

HOW DO YOU GET MORE BECAUSE

YOU START GIVING.

HERE WE CALL IT THE LAW OF

RESP.

I RESP -- LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

YOU FIND IT IN LUKE, "GIVE

AND IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO

YOU."

SO OFTEN WE SAY LET'S GET

ENOUGH MONEY AND I CAN START

GIVING FROM THE EXCESS I

HAVE.

BUT GOD SAYS NO, DO IT MY

WAY.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

THAT'S WHAT MARLENE

DISCOVERED.

WHEN YOU PUT THAT PRINCIPLE

INTO PRACTICE, WHAT GOD HAS

DONE FOR OTHERS, HE WILL DO

FOR YOU.

SO IF YOU WANT TO START A

LIFE OF GENEROSITY, A LIFE

OF GIVING, CALL US,

Terry: I DON'T KNOW

ABOUT DINNER TIME AT YOUR

HOUSE, BUT AT ABOUT 5:00,

6:00, MY HOUSE STARTS SAY,

MOM, WHAT'S FOR DINNER.

IMAGINE FACING YOUR

CHILDREN, TELLING THEM YOU

DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO FEED

THEM.

ANGEL AND MIRNA FACED THAT

DECISION EVERY DAY.

Reporter: SHE TOOK TINY

BITES, TRYING TO MAKE HER

SMALL CRACKER LAST.

THAT WOULD BE HER ONLY MEAL

THAT DAY.

WE DIDN'T HAVE MONEY TO

BUY FOOD.

WE ONLY ATE CRACKERS.

MY STOMACH ACHED A LOT.

Reporter: BUT WENDY'S

MOTHER STILL CRIES WHEN THEY

THINK ABOUT THOSE TERRIBLE

DAYS.

I KNEW MY CHILDREN WERE

HUNGRY.

THEY ALWAYS ASKED FOR MORE.

BUT I DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING

TO GIVE THEM.

Reporter: A HURRICANE

HAD SWEPT THROUGH THEIR TOWN

IN MEXICO, DESTROYING THEIR

HOME AND THEIR FAMILY'S

SMALL ICE CREAM CART, THEIR

ONLY WAY TO MAKE A LIVING.

I SEARCHED THE

FLOODWATERS FOR MY CART, BUT

I COULDN'T FIND IT.

I ONLY FOUND A FEW

CONTAINERS IN THE RIVER.

Reporter: WITH THE FEW

CONTAINERS, THEY MADE THE

HOME MADE ICE CREAM, BUT

WITHOUT THE CART, IT WOULD

BE HARD TO SELL.

I HAD NO MONEY TO FIX IT,

AND WE DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH TO

EAT.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" DECIDED

TO HELP.

FIRST, WE GAVE ANGEL NEW

PARTS, PAINT, AND TOOLS HE

NEEDED TO FIX UP THAT

DAMAGED CART.

SOON THE BROKEN DOWN CART

LOOKED BRAND NEW.

THEN WE BOUGHT ANGEL A LARGE

AMOUNT OF SUGAR, CREAM, AND

OTHER COMMODITIES LOST IN

THE FLOOD.

I NEVER IMAGINED HOW MUCH

HELP I WAS GOING TO RECEIVE

FROM "OPERATION BLESSING."

MY PROFITS HAVE DOUBLED WHAT

I MADE BEFORE THE

HURRICANE.

NOW I CAN FEED MY FAMILY.

I GIVE THANKS TO

"OPERATION BLESSING" FOR

EVERYTHING THEY GAVE TO US.

IT IS HARD TO FIND WORDS

TO EXPRESS MY THANKS TO

YOU.

THANK YOU.

Terry: THIS IS JUST ONE

OF THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES

Gordon: TONIGHT, ONE IN

SEVEN AMERICAN FAMILIES WILL

GO TO BED HUNGRY.

THAT'S WHY "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS WORKING ALL

OVER AMERICA TO HELP

STRUGGLING FAMILIES PUT FOOD

ON THE 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 THAT 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

WAY 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 FOR MY

FAMILY.

Reporter: BOB EVANS IS

THE FOUNDER OF JOSEPH'S

STORE HOUSE, AND HE SAYS

HELPING FAMILIES IS A TEAM

EFFORT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE

WOULD DO WITHOUT "OPERATION

BLESSING."

THEY HAVE BEEN SUCH A

BLESSING TO US TO BRING IN A

VARIETY OF FOOD.

WE NEVER KNOW WHAT WE'RE

GOING TO GET.

IT IS LIKE CHRISTMAS ONCE A

MONTH.

THEY PUT FOOD IN OUR

KITCHEN, AND MY WIFE AND ME

AND MY KIDS ARE VERY, VERY

GRATEFUL FOR THAT.

I'M GLAD TO KNOW THERE ARE

OTHER PEOPLE OUT THERE THA

THAT WANT TO HELP PEOPLE

TRYING TO DO THE BEST FOR

OUR FAMILIES.

WERE VERY DIFFERENT.

SHE WAS BORN WITH A CLEFT

LIP AND ABANDONED BY HER

PARENTS.

AN "OPERATION BLESSING"

SOCIAL WORKER FOUND THE

LITTLE GIRL WALKING AROUND

ALONE.

I MET HER ONE MORNING,

WALKING AROUND ALONE,

CRYING, AND LOOKING HUNGRY.

THE CHILDREN WERE SCARED OF

HER BECAUSE OF THE CLEFT

PALLET SHE HAD.

THEN I TOOK HER TO OUR

OFFICE.

Reporter: RIMBIAN'S

GRANDFATHER FOUND OUT FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING" THAT

SHE NEEDED A PLACE TO STAY,

SO HE TOOK HER INTO HIS

HOME.

"OPERATION BLESSING" PAID

HER CLEFT LIP, AND THEN

ENROLLED HER AT A SPECIAL

BOARDING SCHOOL, WHERE SHE

RECEIVED SPEECH THERAPY.

SHE IS ATTENDING A SCHOOL

WHERE SHE HAS PLENTY OF

FRIENDS AND A LOVING

GRANDFATHER NEARBY.

SO SHE STARTED TO SAY OKAY, I AM

GOING TO LIVE MY LIFE GOD'S WAY

AND I AM GOING TO GIVE.

GOD GAVE HER AN IDEA FOR A

BUSINESS THAT QUICKLY GENERATED

STARTED WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB"

AND HEARD ABOUT THE PRINCIPLE OF

TITHING.

OFF AND ON WE WERE TITHING

WHEN WE COULD AFFORD TO TITHE,

WE WOULD TITHE.

THE LORD KEPT WORKING ON US TO

KEEP TITHING WHETHER IT WAS EASY

OR NOT.

I WAS CONVINCED FROM WATCHING

THE TESTIMONIES AND READING THE

BIBLE.

IT STARTED AS PRAYER TO CONVINCE

BILL TO SHOW HIM HOW THE

PRINCIPLE WORKED.

REPORTER: EVENTUALLY BILL AND

TINA STARTED WATCH "THE 700

I WAS CRYING.

IT WAS AN ANSWER TO MY PRAYER TO

SHOW BILL THE PRINCIPLE OF

GIVING AND TITHING

INCREASED THEIR PLEDGE TO

THEIR ONE MILK COW TURNED INTO

A

GROWING BUSINESS.

JTB JERSEY FARMS.

THEY SELL MILK, BUTTER AND

CHEESE.

IT WAS THE LORD'S IDEA AND HE

MADE IT COME ABOUT, I THOUGHT IT

ONLY APPROPRIATE TO GIVE HIM THE

GLORY.

WE PUT J IN FRONT OF T&B.

JESUS THEN TINA AND BILL.

HAD ONE COW AND NOW FIVE COWS

AND A BULL.

THE PRAYERS STARTED AS BEING

FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT, NOT

OWING ANYONE.

WE KNOW WE ARE ON THAT ROAD.

IT AMAZES ME HOW MANY PRAYERS

ARE ANSWERED IN ONE BUSINESS.

YOU HAVE TO TAKE A STEP OF

FAITH.

THE LORD WILL PREVAIL AND ALWAYS

STEP UP.

TO ANYONE WHO ISN'T CONVINCED

TRUST HIM.

HE IS THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE

WANTS TO PROSPER US AND NOT TO

HARM US.

WHILE MANY AMERICANS ARE

STRUGGLING TO FIND WORK, MARLENE

CARTER HAD THREE JOBS.

STILL AT THE END OF EVERY MONTH,

SHE DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO

PAY HER BILLS.

IF SOMETHING WAS GOING TO

SHUT OFF, THAT IS WHAT I WOULD

HAVE TO PAY, THEN THE NEXT MONTH

IT WAS GOING TO SHUT OFF.

REPORTER: MARLENE CARTER'S

LIFE WAS A FINANCIAL

CATASTROPHE.

SHE WORKED THREE JOBS AND STILL

COULDN'T PAY ALL THE BILLS.

IT WAS A JUGGLING ACT.

REPORTER: MARLENE BEGAN

PRAYING FOR A SOLUTION AND BEGAN

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

A LOT OF TIMES AFTER MY THIRD

JOB, I WOULD HAVE TO GO GROCERY

SHOPPING LATE AT NIGHT.

I WOULD BE PUTTING AWAY MY

GROCERIES AND HAVE THE

TELEVISION ON, CBN WAS ON.

I WAS FASCINATED.

REPORTER: ONE OF THE LESSONS

WAS GIVING AWAY 10% OF YOUR

INCOME.

I REMEMBER THINKING OH MY, I

WORK THREE JOBS AND STILL

JUGGLING MY BILLS.

I DON'T SEE HOW I WOULD BE ABLE

TO COME UP WITH MONEY FOR A

DONATION.

IT SEEMED FOREIGN TO ME.

I THINK THE LORD WAS CONVICTING

ME TO TRY IT.

MARLENE GAVE TO SEVERAL

MINISTRIES, INCLUDING CBN AND

WAS ABLE TO MAKE HER MONEY

STRETCH.

SOMETIMES IT IS LIKE THIS

DOESN'T ADD UP.

IT IS AMAZING HOW THAT HAPPENS.

REPORTER: THEN MARLENE

INCREASED HER GIVING.

A FEW MONTHS LATER LANDED A NEW

JOB MAKING MORE THAN ALL THREE

OF HER PREVIOUS JOBS COMBINED.

I WAS GRATEFUL AND RELIEVED

REPORTER: WHEN SHE INCREASED

HER GIVING, SHE GOT A PROMOTION.

IT IS THE TRUTH.

GORDAN: IT IS THE TRUTH WHEN

YOU TRUST GOD WITH YOUR

FINANCES, THAT IS WHEN THE

BLESSING HAPPENS.

FOR MARLENE AND MAYBE JUST FOR

YOU AS WELL, IT SEEMS STRANGE.

WOKE UP WITH A COUGH, HIS MOTHER

HE BEGAN TO COUGH AND HAD A

FEVER.

I THOUGHT WE WERE LOSING HIM

THAT HE WAS GOING TO DIE.

I PANICKED.

I THOUGHT WE ARE POOR.

WE DON'T HAVE MONEY FOR A DOCTOR

OR CLINIC.

THAT IS WHEN WE REMEMBERED

MEDICINE DONATED FROM AMERICA.

IT WAS LATE AND THE CLINIC WAS

CLOSED.

THE NEXT MORNING, THEY RACED TO

THE CLINIC.

WHEN I GOT THERE I SAW ALL

THESE PEOPLE.

I WAS SO DESPERATE I RAN INTO

THE ONE OF THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE

AND SAID HELP ME, MY SON IS

DYING.

REPORTER: THE DOCTOR QUICKLY

CHECKED BRIAN AND SAID HE HAS

PNEUMONIA.

AS SOON AS HE RECEIVED HIS FIRST

TREATMENT PROVIDED BY ORPHAN'S

PROMISE, HE PERKED UP.

HE RECEIVED STRONG ANTIBIOTICS.

THEY SAVED BRIAN'S LIFE.

THE DOCTOR TOLD ME WHAT TO

DO.

I GAVE HIM ALL OF THE MEDICINE.

A FEW DAYS, BRIAN WAS

FEELING MUCH BETTER.
