The 700 Club - January 24, 2013

The Dawkins started tithing consistently and God blessed them to be able to start their own successful restaurant, Cutlass Grille located in Chesapeake, Virginia. Read Transcript


[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

WOMEN ARE MOVING TO THE

FRONT LINES.

THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF

HAVE LIFTED THE MILITARY'S

BAN ON WOMEN IN COMBAT.

Terry: BUT THAT CHANGE

WON'T TAKE PLACE OVERNIGHT,

AND NOT EVERYONE THINKS IT

IS A GOOD IDEA.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: IT IS A

HISTORIC DAY FOR WOMEN

SERVING IN THE MILITARY AND

A STUNNING TURNAROUND.

A UNANIMOUS VOTE BY THE

COUNTRY'S TOP GENERALS

REMOVES THE 1994 BAN ON

WOMEN SERVING ON THE FRONT

LINE.

THEY'VE PROVEN THEMSELVES

TIME AND TIME AGAIN, AND

FINALLY THEY'LL GET THE

RECOGNITION, WHICH IS KEY.

Reporter: LEON PANETTA

PLANS TO ACCEPT THE JOINT

CHIEF'S RECOMMENDATION

TODAY.

CRITICS SAY PUTTING MEN AND

WOMEN TOGETHER IN COMBAT

COULD HURT UNIT

EFFECTIVENESS, CREATING

DISTRACTIONS AND SEXUAL

TENSION.

THEY ALSO SAY WOMEN ARE NOT

PHYSICALLY ABLE TO PERFORM

MORE DEFENDING TASKS.

DUNCAN HUNTER SAYS THE MOVE

IS, QUOTE,"TOTALLY OUT OF

LEFT FIELD.

THE QUESTION YOU'VE GOT TO

ASK YOURSELF EVERY SINGLE

TIME YOU MAKE A CHANGE LIKE

THIS IS: DOES IT INCREASE

THE COMBAT EFFECTIVENESS OF

THE MILITARY?"

I THINK THE ANSWER IS NO.

BUT WOMEN HAVE BEEN SERVING

IN DIRECT COMBAT ROLES FOR

YEARS IN IRAQ AND

AFGHANISTAN.

THE REALITY OF THE

BATTLEFIELD HAS CHANGED,

REALLY SINCE THE VIETNAM

ERA.

JUST ABOUT EVERYONE IS

SERVING IN A COMBAT

SITUATION.

WE WERE TAKING BULLETS

EVERYWHERE.

I SAW ONE GUY FALL.

Reporter: AN ABC NEWS

POLL SHOWS THREE-QUARTERS OF

AMERICANS SUPPORT WOMEN IN

COMBAT.

WOMEN MAKE UP 14% OF THE

1.4 MILLION ACTIVE DUTY

PERSONNEL.

VETERANS SAY LIFTING THE BAN

MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR THE

FEMALES TO MAKE THE MILITARY

A LASTING CAREER.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: I THINK THIS IS

JUST A RECOGNITION OF THE

MODERN BATTLEFIELD.

TO SAY THEY'RE FRONT LINES

ANYWAY, WHEN YOU'RE DEALING

WITH AN INSURGENCY IS KIND

OF ABSURD.

WHERE IS THE FRONT LINE IN

AFGHANISTAN.

SO AS A RESULT, ANYONE

SERVING IN THE MILITARY IS

ALREADY IN THE FRONT LINES

IN THIS KIND OF WARFARE.

SO JUST RECOGNIZING THAT

WOMEN ARE ALREADY COMMITTED

TO BATTLE, ALREADY ON THE

FRONT LINES, PERHAPS IS

OVERDUE.

WE COULD TAKE A LESSON FROM

THE ISRAELI DEFENSE FORCE.

THEY'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR

YEARS.

THE PRESIDENT OF EGYPT IS

BACK IN THE NEWS WITH MORE

CONTROVERSIAL REMARKS, AND

WHAT IS NOT BEING REPORTED

HE IS ACTUALLY QUOTING THE

QURAN.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

Lee: MOW

MOHAMMED MORSI

SAYS THE MEDIA MADE TOUCH

ABOUT THIS COMMENTS ABOUT

JEWS.

HE RECENTLY CAME UNDER FIRE

FOR CALLING

JEWS, QUOTE,"BLOOD SUCKERS,

AND THE DESCENDENTS OF APES

AND PIGS," BAG IN 2010.

HE SAID CHILDREN MUST BE

NURSED ON JEWS.

FOREIGN POLICY MAGAZINE

REPORTS MORSI TOLD HIM THE

U.S. MEDIA IS MAKING A BIG

DEAL OF HIS COMMENTS BECAUSE

IT IS CONTROLLED BY,

QUOTE,"CERTAIN FORCES."

DEMOCRAT CHRIS COONS WAS IN

THAT MEETING AND SAID MORSI

DID NOT USE THE PHRASE "THE

JEWS," BUT IT IS OBVIOUS

THAT IS WHAT HE MEANT.

FOX NEWS REPORTS THE JETS

LEFT THE NAVAL STATION IN

FORT WORTH, TEXAS ON

TUESDAY.

U.S. WILL GIVE MORE TANKS TO

EGYPT THIS YEAR.

ALL PART OF A FOREIGN AID

PACKAGE.

SOME U.S. CONGRESSMEN SAIDS

U.S. SHOULD NOT GO AHEAD

WITH THIS OVER MORSI'S

COMMENTS.

THE U.S. HAS PASSED A PLAN

TO LET THE GOVERNMENT KEEP

OPERATING FOR THREE MORE

MONTHS BEFORE THE SHOWDOWN

OVER FEDERAL SPENDING.

THE REPUBLICANS HAVE COME UP

WITH A NEW BUDGET PLAN.

THEY SAY IT WILL BALANCE THE

BUDGET IN 10 YEARS WITHOUT

TAX INCREASES, BUT IT WOULD

REQUIRE MORE SPENDING CUTS

THAN THE PREVIOUS IDEAS.

DEMOCRATS SAY THOSE CUTS ARE

TOO DEEP, AND THEY WANT MORE

TAX HIKES.

REPUBLICANS SAY THE

DEMOCRATS GOT MORE TAXES AS

PART OF THE SO-CALLED FISCAL

CLIFF DEAL, AND NOW IT IS

TIME TO FOCUS ON SPENDING

CUTS.

YOU WONDER WHEN THE

REPUBLICANS ARE REALLY GOING

TO HOLD THE DEMOCRATS' FEET

TO THE FIRE ON THAT ISSUE.

Gordon: I KIND OF

WONDER WHEN THE DEFICIT IS

GOING TO HOLD ALL OF OUR

FEET TO THE FIRE.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT FROM A

DEFICIT STANDPOINT, HOW LONG

CAN WE CONTINUE TO BORROW?

WHEN YOU START TALKING

$16 TRILLION, AND IN JUST A

COUPLE OF YEARS, IT WILL BE

$20 TRILLION.

IT BECOMES IMPOSSIBLE TO PAY

THAT BACK.

SO REGARDLESS OF REVENUE

INCREASES IN THE FORM OF

TAXES, OR SPENDING CUTS

SPECIFICALLY TO ENTITLEMENT

PROGRAMS, MEDICARE,

MEDICAID, AND SOCIAL

SECURITY, AND THESE WILL NOT

BE CUTS IN BENEFITS, BUT

JUST DELAYS, AND ARE YOU EL

AVAILABLELIGIBLE FOR THAT

KIND OF BENEFIT FROM THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT -- UNTIL

WE GET INTO THAT KIND OF

DISCUSSION, WE'RE NOT GOING

TO SOLVE THE DEFICIT

PROBLEM.

AND THAT'S GOING TO BE THE

DOMINANT PROBLEM OF THE NEXT

10 YEARS.

AND IF WE'RE CONTINUING TO

FIGHT BATTLES ON POLITICAL

GROUNDS, IS IT TAXES OR IS

IT SPENDING, AND START

LOOKING AT THAT WE'VE GOT A

DEFICIT PROBLEM, AND UNTIL

WE DEAL WITH THAT

EFFECTIVELY AND IMMEDIATELY,

WE'RE ALL HEADED TO

TROUBLE.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: SEAN AND RACHEL

WERE BEHIND ON THEIR BILLS,

AND THE COLLECTION AGENCIES

WERE CALLING.

THEY WERE DOWN TO THEIR LAST

$80, AND HERE IS HOW THEY

USED IT TO MULTIPLY THEIR

MONEY.

Reporter: LIKE MANY

COUPLES, SEAN AND RACHEL

WERE ONE PAYCHECK AWAY FROM

FINANCIAL DISASTER.

SEAN HADN'T SEEN A PAY

INCREASE IN FOUR YEARS, DUE

TO A SALARY FREEZE AT HIS

JOB.

MANY TIMES, THEY SIMPLY

DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH TO PAY

THEIR BILLS.

WE DIDN'T GET TO

FORECLOSURE, BUT WE DID GET

THE NOTICES IN THE MAIL, THE

CERTIFIED NOTICES THAT WE'RE

BEHIND ON OUR MORTGAGE.

THERE WERE TIMES WHEN WE

WERE LIVING PAYCHECK TO

PAYCHECK, AND WE JUST DIDN'T

KNOW HOW A CERTAIN BILL WAS

GOING TO GET PAID.

SO IT WAS VERY STRESSFUL FOR

US.

Reporter: SEAN AND

RACHEL BOTH WORKED CORPORATE

JOBS, BUT THEY KNEW THEY

NEEDED SOMETHING TO FALL

BACK ON.

SO THEY STARTED A CATERING

CONCESSION BUSINESS, SELLING

SEAN'S JERKY CHICKEN AT

CONCERTS AND THE WEEKENDS.

BUT STARTING A BUSINESS PUT

THEM FURTHER BEHIND ON THEIR

BILLS.

BILL COLLECTORS WERE

THREATENING US, AND COURT

NOTICES, WHERE WE HAD TO GO

TO COURT BECAUSE OF UNPAID

BILLS.

Reporter: SEAN GOT A

SECOND JOB WORKING THE

SECOND SHIFT AS A MEAT

PACKER, BUT THAT STILL

WASN'T ENOUGH.

I WAS OVERWORKED AND

STRESSED OUT.

IT WAS A VERY HUMBLING

EXPERIENCE FOR ME.

Reporter: SEAN AND

RACHEL WERE GENEROUS, BUT

THEY DIDN'T ALWAYS TITHE.

ONE DAY THEY HEARD A MESSAGE

THAT SAID THEY NEEDED TO

TRUST IMOD.

GOD.

THEY PUT THEIR LAST $80 IN

THE OFFERING BASKET ON

SUNDAY.

IT FELT GOOD.

I KNEW HE WAS GOING TO

PROVIDE.

Reporter: SEAN SOLD A

VEHICLE TO BRING IN EXTRA

MONEY, AND A BUYER OFFERED

HIM OVER $8,000, WELL OVER

WHAT IT WAS WORTH.

WE WERE ABLE TO GET

CURRENT ON THE BILLS.

MY BROTHER-IN-LAW, WHEN

WE WERE TELLING HIM WHAT

HAPPENED, HE SAID, GOD GAVE

IT BACK TO YOU 100-FOLD.

HE ASKED YOU TO TEST HIM,

AND YOU DID, AND HE GAVE IT

BACK TO YOU.

Reporter: IN 2010, SEAN

LOST HIS CORPORATE JOB.

WITH HIS SEVERANCE, HE

DECIDED TO LIVE HIS DREAM,

TO OPEN HIS OWN RESTAURANT.

I REALLY CAN'T WANT TO GO

BACK INTO THE WORK FORCE.

I DIDN'T WANT TO START OVER

WITH ANOTHER COMPANY, AND I

REALLY WANTED TO START A

RESTAURANT BECAUSE I KNEW I

HAD A GOOD PRODUCT.

AND BOTH OF US CAME INTO AN

AGREEMENT, LET'S OPEN A

RESTAURANT.

Reporter: THEY OPENED

THE CUTLESS GRILL IN

VIRGINIA.

WE KNEW HE HAD A GREAT

PRODUCT, AND WE KNEW AS LONG

AS WE GLORIFIED GOD, HE WAS

GOING TO GROW OUR BUSINESS

FOR US, AND HE CERTAINLY

HAS.

INITIALLY WE SAW A JUMP,

LIKE, 30%, AND YEAR AFTER

YEAR IT GREW.

LOOKING AT DECEMBER 2000 TO

2010, IT WENT UP 198%, SO%

HAS BEEN REALLY, REALLY

GOOD.

Reporter: SEAN AND

RACHEL ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO

TRUST GOD AND BE OBEDIENT,

TOO.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE

EVERYONE TO PUT THEIR FAITH

IN GOD, AND TRUST HIM WITH

YOUR TITHE AND OFFERINGS.

GOD HAS A GOOD PLAN, AND

WHEN YOU'RE IN TRYING TIMES,

FALL BACK ON THE LORD AND

HIS WORD, AND HE WILL

PROVIDE.

Gordon: I LOVE THIS

STORY.

WHEN YOU'RE IN TRYING TIMES,

FALL BACK ON THE LORD AND

HIS WORD, AND HE'LL SEE YOU

THROUGH.

HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM

MALACHI 3: "BRING ALL OF THE

TITHES INTO THE STORE HOUSE

THAT THERE MAY BE FOOD IN MY

HOUSE, AND PROVE ME NOW IN

THIS, SAYS THE LORD OF

HOSTS, IF I WILL NOT OPEN

FOR YOU THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR OUT A

BLESSING THAT THERE WILL NOT

BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE

IT."

HERE ARE SEAN AND RACHEL,

THEY'RE IN VERY TOUGH

CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT THEY HEAR

A MESSAGE ON TITHING, AND

THEY SAY, OKAY, WE'LL GIVE.

WE'LL GIVE OUR LAST $80, AND

THEN GOD CAME THROUGH FOR

THEM AND PROVIDED A WAY.

YOU WON'T HEAR ME SAY THIS

OFTEN, BUT I'M REALLY GLAD

SEAN LOST HIS JOB BECAUSE HE

WAS THEN ABLE TO MAKE THE

DREAM HAPPEN.

AND HIS DREAM WAS TO OPEN

HIS OWN RESTAURANT, AND GOD

BLESSED THAT, AND BLESSED

HIM WITH THE SKILL TO MAKE

WONDERFUL FOOD, AND TO SEE

AN INCREASE, NOT JUST 100%,

BUT A 198% INCREASE IN JUST

ONE YEAR.

NOW, THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU,

IF YOU JUST PUT INTO

PRACTICE WHAT GOD HAS FOR

YOU.

AND HE SPELLED IT OUT VERY

CLEARLY IN THE BIBLE, WHAT

TO DO WITH YOUR FINANCES.

AND WHEN YOU DO IT HIS WAY,

THAT'S WHEN THE BLESSINGS

COME.

SCOTT AND BRANDY SQUIRES

WERE $3500 IN DEBT, AND THEY

PROMISED THE BANK THEY WERE

WOULD HAVE THE MONEY AT THE

END OF THE DAY.

THERE WAS JUST ONE PROBLEM:

SCOTT AND BRANDY HAD NO IDEA

WHERE THEY WERE GOING TO GET

THE MONEY.

WE HAD A TOUGH TIME

PAYING OUR BILLS.

WE HAD A TEENY, ONE

BEDROOM APARTMENT AND A OLD

CAR.

AND WE ONLY HAD ONE

COUCH, ONE PIECE OF

FURNITURE AFTER WE GOT

MARRIED.

Reporter: THEY STARTED

OUT WITH VERY LITTLE.

BRANDY HAD JUST GRADUATED

FROM COLLEGE, AND WAS

WORKING AT A TUTORS COMPANY,

AND SCOTT WAS FINISHING HIS

DEGREE AND WORKING

PART-TIME.

IT WAS A VERY EMOTIONAL

TIME.

BRANDY AND I REALLY HAD TO

SEEK THE LORD ABOUT HOW WE

WERE SUPPOSED TO GET OUT OF

THIS FINANCIAL SITUATION,

WHICH IS VERY TOUGH.

Reporter: THEN BRANDY

LEARNED THE TUTORING COMPANY

SHE WORKED FOR WAS CLOSING

BECAUSE THE OWNERS WERE

LEAVING THE STATE.

SCOTT SUGGESTED THEY BUY THE

BUSINESS.

IT SEEMED IMPOSSIBLE.

THEY HAD NO MONEY FOR A DOWN

PAYMENT, AND THOUSANDS OF

DOLLARS IN CREDIT CARD AND

STUDENT LOAN DEBT.

I TOLD BRANDY IT IS GOING

TO BE OKAY BECAUSE I FEEL

LIKE GOD HAS PUT IN MY HEART

WE'RWE'RE SUPPOSED TO HAVE

THAT BUSINESS.

Reporter: SO THEY SPOKE

TO THE OWNERS, WHO AGREED TO

SELL THE BUSINESS TO THE

SQUIRES WITH NO DOWN

PAYMENT.

NOW THE SQUIRES HAD THEIR

OWN BUSINESS AND A LOT OF

HARD WORK AHEAD OF THEM.

THE FIRST YEAR WAS

FINANCIALLY VERY ROUGH.

Reporter: WITH PAYROLL

AND OTHER EXPENSES, SCOTT

AND BRANDY WEREN'T CLEARING

MUCH FROM THE BUSINESS.

BUT THEY SOON LEARNED A

LESSON THAT WOULD TURN THEIR

FINANCES AROUND.

THE FIRST DAY I LEARNED

ABOUT TITHING, WE WERE

SITTING DOWN AND WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

I LOOKED AT BRANDY, AND I

SAID, WE NEED TO START

GIVING.

WE DIDN'T HAVE MUCH TO GIVE,

SO WE GAVE $20.

EVEN JUST $20, WHEN YOU

HAVE TO BORROW MONEY FOR

FOOD SOMETIMES, IT SEEMED

SILLY AND UNREASONABLE TO

GIVE $20.

Reporter: IF THEY

DEPUTY HAVE MONEY, THEY GAVE

AWAY THEIR POSSESSIONS.

THERE WAS ONE TIME WHERE

WE NEEDED $3500 BY 5:00.

AND GOD JUST PUT ON MY

HEART.

HE SAID, YOU GAVE, YOU DID

WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DO.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

OKAY.

Reporter: THE DAY THE

MONEY WAS DUE, THE BANK

CALLED SCOTT.

AND SO THE BANK SAID,

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

AND I SAID, I WILL BRING IN

A CHECK BEFORE YOU CLOSE.

AND HE SAID, SO DO YOU KNOW

SOMEONE WHO IS GOING TO

BRING YOU A CHECK?

AND I SAID NO.

BUT I SAID, I WILL BRING IN

A CHECK BEFORE 5:00.

THEY SAID OKAY.

Reporter: A FEW HOURS

LATER, A NEW STUDENT'S

MOTHER WALKED IN AND PAID

FOR A TUTORING PACKAGE IN

FULL.

SHE COMES IN AND SAYS, I

WANT TO BUY 140 LESSONS UP

FRONTS, WHERE MOST PEOPLE

BUY EIGHT OR NINE.

IT WAS 4:30, AND WE HAD 40

MINUTES TO GET TO THE BANK,

AND SHE WROTE US A $4,000

CHECK.

Reporter: IN JUST A FEW

YEARS, THE SQUIRE'S TUTORS

BUSINESS HAS GROWN FROM 20

20 STUDENTS TO 70, AND THEY

BOUGHT A HOUSE AND PAID OFF

$40,000 IN DEBT.

WE GIVE MORE NOW THAN

WHAT WE MADE BEFORE WE GOT

THE BUSINESS.

SO IT HAS BEEN ABSOLUTELY

AMAZING, ABOUT HOW GOD HAS

BLESSED US COMPLETELY WITH

OUR PERSONAL AND BUSINESS

FINANCES.

Gordon: GOD WANTS TO

BLESS HIS CHILDREN, BUT HE

IS LOOKING FOR US TO DO WHAT

HE HAS ASKED US TO DO.

AND WHEN WE DO THAT, THAT'S

WHEN THE BLESSINGS COME.

HERE IT IS FROM MATTHEW 25:

29: "TO THOSE WHO USE WELL

WHAT THEY ARE GIVEN, EVEN

MORE WILL BE GIVEN, AND THEY

WILL HAVE AN ABUNDANCE.

BUT TO THOSE WHO DO NOTHING,

EVEN WHAT LITTLE THEY HAVE

WILL BE TAKEN AWAY."

HERE IS SCOTT AND BRANDY,

AND THEY'RE IN REAL

DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES.

BUT THEY MAKE A DECISION

THEY'RE GOING TO TITHE, AND

THEY'RE GOING TO DO IT IN

VERY UNUSUAL WAYS.

HOW CAN WE START GIVING AWAY

THINGS TO PEOPLE?

HOW CAN WE HAVE LESS OF

THINGS THAT WE DON'T USE

ANYMORE -- HOW CAN WE MAKE

THAT PART OF OUR GENEROSITY,

OUR GIVING, AND SEE WHAT GOD

DOES.

AND GOD GAVE SCOTT THE

ASSURANCE.

YOU'VE DONE WHAT I'VE ASKED

YOU TO DO.

I'M GOING TO TAKE CARE OF

YOU.

SO MUCH SO, HE HAS THE FAITH

TO TELL THE BANK, I'M GOING

TO BRING YOU A CHECK TODAY,

AND GOD CAME THROUGH FOR

HIM.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF

YOU JUST TAKE THE CHALLENGE

AND SAY, I WANT TO GIVE.

IN 2013, I WANT TO BE KNOWN

FOR MY GENEROSITY.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS

BECAUSE CBN PARTNERS, JUST

LIKE SCOTT AND BRANDY, SAY

WE LOVE GIVING.

WE LOVE LIVING A LIFE OF

GENEROSITY.

SO THEY WANT TO CHALLENGE

YOU.

FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES,

THEY'LL MATCH YOU, DOLLAR

FOR DOLLAR, UP TO $75,000.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS.

AND WE ASK FOR

MULTIPLICATION.

AND AS YOU TOOK CARE OF

SCOTT AND BRANDY, WE JUST

ASK THAT YOU WOULD TAKE CARE

OF THE DONORS WHO MADE IT

POSSIBLE TO ISSUE THIS

CHALLENGE.

AND FOR THOSE WATCHING,

MAKING DECISIONS TODAY, JUST

BLESS THEM, ENCOURAGE THEM,

BE WITH THEM.

FOR WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, 30 MINUTES ON

A $75,000 CHALLENGE.

WHAT THAT MEANS IS PEOPLE

WHO ALREADY DONATE TO CBN

SAY THEY WANT TO MATCH NEW

DOLLARS COMING IN.

SO FOR THE NEXT 29 MINUTES

AND 47 SECONDS, THEY'LL

MATCH YOU, DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR, UP TO $75,000.

GORDON?

Gordon: TODAY VAN

WILSON RUNS A MILLION DOLLAR

BUSINESS, AND HE LOVES BEING

HIS OWN BOSS.

BUT JUST A FEW YEARS AGO,

VAN WAS OUT OF WORK, LIVING

ON DISABILITY, AND WONDERING

HOW TO PAY HIS BILLS.

Reporter: VAN WILSON

TOOK UP GOLF A FEW YEARS

AGO, AND ENJOYS PLAYING WHEN

HE IS NOT WORKING.

BUT HIS CAREER AND HIS GAME

SUFFERED A MAJOR SETBACK

WHEN HE BROKE HIS HIP.

I GOT UP ONE MORNING AND

FELL ON THE FLOOR.

I HAD NO WARNING THAT MY HIP

WAS GOING TO GIVE ME

TROUBLE.

Reporter: VAN NEEDED A

HIP REPLACEMENT AND BACK

SURGERY.

HE WAS OUT OF WORK FOR TWO

YEARS AS HE RECUPERATED.

I HAD JUST MOVED.

I HAD GONE THROUGH A DIVORCE

SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE THAT.

AND HERE I AM WITH BOXES AND

A LITTLE PLACE, IN A BRAND

NEW NEIGHBORHOOD, WITH NOT

MANY FRIENDS.

I REALLY LOST EVERYTHING I

HAD.

Reporter: VAN'S FAITH

WAS STRONG, BUT TIME DURING

HIS RECOVERY WASN'T EASY.

HE WAS ON A SHARPLY LIMITED

INCOME UNTIL HE WAS TOLD HE

COULD TAKE EARLY RETIREMENT

FROM HIS JOB.

IT WAS REALLY GREAT TO

SEE GOD'S TIMING.

IT CAME RIGHT ON THE EXACT

MINUTE THAT I HAD TO HAVE

SOMETHING.

Reporter: AS HE HEALED,

HE READ HIS BIBLE AND

WATCHED TV.

THAT'S WHEN HE SAW A STORY

ON "THE 700 CLUB."

THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT

THEY GAVE THEIR TITHES.

THEIR BUSINESS WAS COMING

BACK AROUND.

AND THEY WERE PUTTING THINGS

BACK TOGETHER IN THEIR LIFE

AGAIN.

AND I SAID, I'M GOING TO DO

THAT.

Reporter: MONEY WAS

STILL TIGHT, BUT VAN DECIDED

TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

AND THAT SET THE WHOLE

THING IN MOTION.

I WAS WAITING ON GOD, BUT

GOD WAS WAITING ON ME.

Reporter: A FEW DAYS

LATER HE GOT A CALL FROM A

FRIEND ABOUT A NEW BUSINESS

OPPORTUNITY, SELLING HEALTH

AND FITNESS PRODUCTS, AND

VAN COULD WORK FROM HOME.

IT HAS GONE BETTER AND

QUICKER THAN ANYTHING I'VE

EVER DONE.

I REALLY BELIEVE THE WAY IT

WORKED, THAT IT WAS GOD THAT

DID IT.

Reporter: AFTER A YEAR

AT HIS NEW JOB, VAN GOT A

CALL FROM HIS BUSINESS

PARTNER.

HE SAID, HAVE YOU ADDED

UP YOUR VOLUME.

HE SAID, YOU DID OVER A

MILLION DOLLARS OF BUSINESS

IN A YEAR.

AT ONE POINT, WE EVEN HAD A

PRODUCT SHORTAGE.

NOW WE HAVE THREE PLANTS,

PRODUCING 24 HOURS A DAY.

THEY'RE AHEAD OF THEIR

PROJECTIONS.

THEY CAN'T KEEP UP WITH IT.

Reporter: TODAY VAN IS

IN THE SAME BUSINESS AND

BACK ON THE LINKS.

GOD HAS MET MY NEEDS.

IF HE WILL DO IT FOR ME,

HE'LL DO IT FOR YOU.

HE'LL DO IT FOR EVERYBODY.

Gordon: HE'LL DO IT FOR

EVERYBODY BECAUSE HE WANTS

TO.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TALK GOD

INTO BLESSING HIM.

YOU JUST HAVE TO SHOW HIM

THAT YOU'RE WILLING TO LIVE

LIFE ACCORDING TO HIS RULES

AND HIS PRINCIPLES.

HERE IS VAN.

HE IS DIVORCED, HE IS

DISABLED, HE IS OUT OF WORK,

HE DOESN'T HAVE ANY FRIENDS,

AND HE IS LIVING IN A SMALL

APARTMENT WITH A BUNCH OF

BOXES AROUND HIM.

AND HE SEES A STORY ABOUT

WHAT GOD CAN DO TO PEOPLE

WHO SAY, OKAY, I'LL LIVE IN

ACCORDANCE TO GOD'S RULES,

AND I'LL START GIVING.

AND HE STARTED DOING THAT,

AND GOD STARTED BLESSING

HIM.

YOU SEE THE TURNAROUND, AND

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF

YOU JUST SAY, I'M GOING TO

TAKE THE PRINCIPLES THAT GOD

HAS LAID OUT IN THE BIBLES

AND I'M GOING TO LIVE BY

THEM.

"IT IS POSSIBLE TO GIVE AWAY

AND BECOME RICHER, IT IS

ALSO POSSIBLE TO HOLD ON TOO

TIGHTLY AND LOSE

EVERYTHING.

YES, THE LIBERAL MAN SHALL

BE RICH; BY WATERING OTHERS,

HE WATERS HIMSELF."

JUST TAKE THAT TO HEART.

WHEN YOU START TAKING CARE

OF THE POOR, WHEN YOU START

LIVING A LIFE OF GENEROSITY,

THAT'S WHEN THE BLESSINGS

COME.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE ARE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," $20 A MONTH,

IN 2006, AMERICA'S HOUSING

MARKET WAS AT ITS PEAK, AND

SO WAS DEBRA'S REAL ESTATE

BUSINESS.

BUT WHEN THE BUBBLE BURST

JUST A FEW YEARS LATER,

DEBRA AND HER HUSBAND FOUND

THEMSELVES $5 MILLION IN

DEBT.

Reporter: BEFORE 2009,

DEAL AND DEBORAH HOBBY LIVED

LARGE.

DEBRA WAS A SUCCESSFUL REAL

ESTATE WORKER, AND DEAL

OWNED A BODY SHOP.

I WAS VERY DRIVEN.

I WAS ALL ABOUT ACQUIRING

THE NEXT DEAL.

Reporter: AND SHE

DEVELOPED SEVERAL AFFLUENT

SUBDIVISIONS, AND IN 2006,

THE COUPLE BOUGHT TWO

ADDITIONAL PROPERTIES WITH

PLANS TO DEVELOP THEM AS

WELL.

REAL ESTATE WAS BOOMING.

Reporter: AS THE

COUPLE'S BUSINESS EXPLODED

SO DID THEIR LIFESTYLE.

EVERYBODY IN TOWN COULD SEE

THEIR 4600 DREAM HOME FROM

THE MAIN ROAD.

WE BECAME CONSUMED WITH

WHAT WE THOUGHT WE HAD TO

HAVE IN ORDER TO BE HAPPY.

IT WAS BASICALLY STUFF.

Reporter: IN 2009, THE

HOUSING MARKET CRASHED, AND

THE HOBBY'S BUSINESS DRIED

UP ALMOST OVERNIGHT.

ALL OF THE BUILDERS THAT

WE BASICALLY WORKED WITH

BASICALLY QUIT OR WENT

BANKRUPT OR BOTH.

IT WAS LIKE ONE DAY IT WAS

FINE AND THE NEXT DAY IT

JUST DIED.

Reporter: THE HOBBYS

WERE QUICKLY BURIED IN AN

IMPOSSIBLE AMOUNT OF DEBT.

BANKS DEMANDED PAYMENT ON

THE LOANS THEY HAD TAKEN

OUT.

$3 MILLION, $4 MILLION WE

WERE IN DEBT.

IT CAUSED A LOT OF FEAR,

ALMOST A PANIC.

Reporter: DEBRA SHIFTED

HER REAL ESTATE APPROACH,

AND D.L. STARTED WORKING

OVERNIGHT.

BUT IT WASN'T ENOUGH.

FIRST THE HOBBYS WERE FORCED

TO SELL THEIR HOME AT A HUGE

LOSS.

IN 2010, THEY DECLARED

PERSONAL BANKRUPTCY.

WHEN THEY MOVE THEIR FAMILY

OF FOUR INTO A 1,000 SQUARE

FOOT HOME, THEY FELT

DEFEATED.

OUR MARRIAGE WAS IN

SHAMBLES.

WE PUT GOD ON THE BACK

BURNER.

THAT'S WHAT CAUSED US TO

UNRAVEL.

WE REALIZED, WE HAVE NO

PEACE IN OUR HEART AND IN

OUR HOME.

THAT IS WHEN WE DECIDED

TO REALLY FOCUS ON GOD AND

EACH OTHER.

WE MADE A COMMITMENT TO GOD,

WE WERE GOING TO FOLLOW HIM,

NO MATTER WHAT.

Reporter: D.L. AND

DEBORAH AGREED ON ONE THING:

THEY WOULD KEEP ON TITHING,

DESPITE THEIR DIFFICULTIES.

AND THEY STARTED TO WATCH

"THE 700 CLUB," AND

EVENTUALLY BECAME PARTNERS.

THERE WERE SO MANY

STORIES ON THERE THAT GAVE

ME HOPE, THROUGH GOD'S

WORD.

IT JUST ENCOURAGED US.

Reporter: WITH THEIR

NEW FOCUS, AMAZING THINGS

STARTED TO HAPPEN IN THAT

1,000 SQUARE FOOT HOME.

IT HEALED US.

AND MOVING TO A SMALLER HOME

AND HAVING LESS DISTRACTION

AND LESS PRESSURE, IT

ENABLED US TO APPRECIATE THE

REAL THINGS, THE IMPORTANT

THINGS IN LIFE.

Reporter: DEBORAH'S

BUSINESS EVENTUALLY STARTED

TO REBOUND.

WITHIN TWO YEARS OF THE

BANKRUPTCY, THE HOBBYS

BOUGHT A LARGER HOME.

TODAY THEY LIVE THEIR LIVES

FOCUSED ON GOD.

NOT WORRIED ABOUT WHAT THEY

CAN GET, BUT WHAT THEY CAN

GIVE.

GOD DOUBLE DARED YOU ON

THIS ONE, TO TRY HIM AND SEE

IF HE WON'T POUR YOU OUT A

BLESSING.

OUR FINANCES HAVE BEEN

RESTORED BECAUSE OF HIM.

AND I BELIEVE IT IS BECAUSE

OF US CONTINUING TO TITHE.

AND US PUTTING GOD FIRST IN

OUR LIVES.

Gordon: HE TELLS US TO

PUT HIM FIRST, TO PUT THE

KINGDOM OF GOD FIRST.

WHEN WE DO THAT, ALL OF

THESE OTHER THINGS WILL BE

ADDED UNTO US.

BUT JESUS HAS A SPECIFIC

WARNING ABOUT THE DECEIT OF

RICHES.

YOU FIND IT IN LUKE 12:

"BEWARE, DON'T ALWAYS BE

WISHING FOR WHAT YOU DON'T

HAVE.

FOR REAL LIFE AND REAL

LIVING ARE NOT RELATED TO

HOW RICH WE ARE.

YES, EVERY MAN IS A FOOL WHO

GETS RICH ON EARTH BUT NOT

IN HEAVEN."

TAKE THAT WARNING TO HEART.

YOU WANT TO LOOK AT PEOPLE

THAT SOMETIMES HAVE VERY

MISERABLE LIVES, AND YOU

READ THE BIOGRAPHIES OF RICH

MEN, AND YOU SEE WHAT

HAPPENS.

DON'T BE A FOOL WITH THAT.

DON'T BE FOOLED BY WHAT THE

WORLD SAYS IS WHAT YOU NEED

TO BE HAPPY.

BECAUSE IT DOESN'T PRODUCE

HAPPINESS.

NOW, DOES GOD WANT YOU TO

HAVE THINGS?

DOES HE WANT TO GIVE YOU THE

DESIRES OF YOUR HEART?

YES, HE DOES.

BUT HE WANTS TO DO IT IN A

WAY THAT YOU'LL HAVE A

LOVING FAMILY, THAT YOU'LL

HAVE A RICH EXPERIENCE, A

RICH LIFE, FILLED WITH

RELATIONSHIPS.

AND HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE

THAT YOU'RE PUTTING HEAVEN

FIRST, AND YOU'RE PUTTING

THE KINGDOM OF GOD FIRST.

AND WHEN YOU DO THAT, AND

WHEN YOU LAY UP TREASURY IN

HEAVEN, WELL, THEN YOU'RE

REALLY WISE IN GOD'S EYES.

NOW, START THINKING ABOUT

WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE

WITH YOU IN HEAVEN.

IS IT ANY OF YOUR

POSSESSIONS?

NO.

THE THING WE GET TO TAKE,

AND IT'S NOT A THING, IT'S

PEOPLE.

YOU GET TO TAKE THE PEOPLE

THAT YOU'RE ABLE TO WITNESS

TO, YOU'RE ABLE TO BRING

INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

THAT'S HOW YOU CAN LAY UP

TREASURE.

THAT'S WHAT THE APOSTLE PAUL

SAID, YOU'RE MY CROWN.

HE WAS TALKING TO THE PEOPLE

HE HAD SHARED THE GOSPEL

WITH.

SO DO THAT, AND START

SAYING, OKAY, THIS IS MY

LIFESTYLE.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE I'M

KEEPING HEAVEN IN FRONT OF

ME.

I KNOW MY ULTIMATE

DESTINATION, AND IT'S NOT

SOME BIG HOUSE HERE.

THERE IS A BIG HOUSE FOR ME

UP IN HEAVEN, AND I WANT TO

MAKE SURE THERE ARE LOTS OF

PEOPLE GOING WITH ME.

NOW, HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

WELL, ONE, YOU CAN START

LIVING A LIFE OF WITNESSING

AND DISCIPLESHIP.

AND ANOTHER -- BECAUSE NOT

ALL OF US GET TO GO ON

MISSION TRIPS, AND NOT ALL

OF US GET TO BE

MISSIONARIES, BUT WE CAN BE

PART OF SENDING THE GOSPEL

AROUND THE WORLD.

AND YOU CAN BE PART OF THAT

BY JOINING "THE 700 CLUB."

BECAUSE WE'RE DOING IT.

WE'RE IN OVER 130 COUNTRIES,

PREACHING THE GOSPEL IN OVER

40 LANGUAGES.

WE'RE GETTING READY TO

RELEASE "SUPERBOOK," BIBLE

CARTOON STORIES FOR THE

CHILDREN OF THE WORLD.

OUR GOAL OVER THE NEXT FIVE

YEARS IS FOR 300 MILLION

CHILDREN TO SEE THE STORIES

OF THE BIBLE IN THEIR OWN

LANGUAGE.

AND ALL OF THAT KICKS OFF

THIS YEAR.

AND WE NEED YOUR HELP TO DO

THAT.

SO IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART

OF SHARING THE BIBLE WITH

THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD,

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

SHARING THE GOSPEL, LEADING

PEOPLE INTO A PRAYER OF

SALVATION AROUND THE WORLD,

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

JUST $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY.

SOME OF YOU SAY I CAN JOIN

AT A HIGHER LEVEL.

WE'VE GOT "THE 700 CLUB"

GOLD, $40 A MONTH.

AND THOUSAND LEVEL IS

$$1,000 A YEAR, $84 A

MONTH.

AND 2500 LEVEL, THAT'S $2500

A YEAR.

AND THE FOUNDERS CLUB IS

$5,000 A YEAR, AND CHAIRMAN

'S LEVEL IS $10,000 OR

MORE.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

THE BIBLE TELLS US A LITTLE

ABOUT HEAVEN, BUT HAVE YOU

EVER WANTED TO KNOW MORE?

WHO WILL YOU SEE, AND WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET THERE?

IN "LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE,

PART TWO," YOU'LL MEET

PEOPLE WHO CAN ANSWER ALL

THOSE QUESTIONS BECAUSE

THEY'VE BEEN THERE.

Wendy: THEY DIED, THEY

STEPPED INTO ETERNITY, AND

NOW THEY'VE COME BACK TO

TELL THEIR AMAZING STORIES

OF HEAVEN AND THEIR WARNINGS

ABOUT HELL.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO KNOW MORE,

MORE STORIES, WE WANT YOU TO

HAVE MORE.

"LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO," IT'S OUR GIFT TO YOU

WHEN YOU CALL RIGHT NOW AND

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH.

1-800-759-0700.

THAT'S THE NUMBER TO CALL.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

IT'S ANOTHER GREAT WAY TO

GIVE.

MAYBE YOU'RE ALREADY A "700

CLUB" PARTNER.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE

IN LIVES AROUND THE WORLD,

IN WAYS YOU WILL NEVER KNOW

UNTIL YOU GET TO HEAVEN.

SO THANK YOU.

BUT IT IS A NEW YEAR.

AND I WANT TO CHALLENGE

YOU.

WHY NOT TAKE IT UP TO THE

GOLD LEVEL.

JUST $40 A MONTH, AND YOU

CAN BE EVEN MORE OF A

BLESSING.

WE'RE GOING TO BLESS YOU

BACK WITH THREE D.V.D.s,

THREE "LIFE BEYOND THE

GRAVE, PART TWO"s.

AND SOME OF US CAN DO MORE.

YOU'RE SAYING, WENDY, I CAN

DO MORE THAN $40 A MONTH.

COME ON THEN.

WE WANT YOU TO DO MORE.

WE WANT TO BLESS YOU WITH

"LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO," IT IS OUR GIFT TO YOU

WHEN YOU CALL

1-800-759-0700.

THIS D.V.D. IS PROBABLY THE

MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN

SIT DOWN AND WATCH BECAUSE

IT COULD DETERMINE WHERE YOU

AND YOUR LOVED ONES SPEND

ETERNITY.

IS THERE ANYTHING MORE

IMPORTANT THAN THAT?

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

IT IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU CALL RIGHT NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN YOU DO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," YOU ARE

GIVING NEW LIFE TO PEOPLE

ALL OVER THE WORLD.

LIKE ONE ELDERLY COUPLE IN

CHINA.

THEY WANTED TO GET SPEECH

THERAPY FOR THEIR DEAF

GRANDSON, BUT THAT WOULD

HAVE COST THEM EVERY PENNY

THEY EARNED FOR THE NEXT

FOUR YEARS.

GRANDPA YANIS A POOR

FARMER.

HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE ALWAYS

WORKED HARD TO MAKE ENDS

MEET.

BUT MONEY GOT REALLY TIGHT

WHEN THEY STARTED RAISING

THEIR GRANDSON, SHOON.

THE DOCTOR SAID MY

GRANDSON IS DEAF, AND HE

SAID SHOON WOULD NEVER SPEAK

HIS ENTIRE LIFE.

Terry: SO EVEN WHEN

THEIR TRACTOR BROKE DOWN,

AND THEY HAVE NO WAY TO

REPLACE IT, THE YANS TOOK

ODD JOBS TO BUY THEIR

GRANDSON A HEARING AID.

AND WHILE GRANDMA TRIED TO

TEACH SHOON TO SPEAK, THERE

WASN'T MUCH PROGRESS.

WHAT THE BOY NEEDED WAS

SPEECH THERAPY, BUT NO

MATTER HOW HARD THE YANS

TRIED, THEY COULDN'T AFFORD

THAT.

AFTER THE TRACTOR BROKE

DOWN, I ONLY MADE $40 A

MONTH, AND MY GRANDSON

NEEDED $2,000 FOR SPEECH

THERAPY.

Terry: THEN THE YANS

HEARD ABOUT CBN AND OUR

MISSION TO HELP NEEDY

CHILDREN IN CHINA.

I TOLD MY HUSBAND, WE

NEED TO PRAY TO GOD AND ASK

CBN TO SAY YES TO OUR

REQUEST FOR HELP.

Terry: AND WE DID.

CBN SENT SHOON TO SPEECH

THERAPY, AND NOW HE CAN

COMMUNICATE JUST LIKE THE

OTHER CHILDREN HIS AGE.

SHOON IS TOTALLY

DIFFERENT THAN HE WAS

BEFORE.

WHEN HE SPEAKS, IT IS LIKE

POETRY TO MY EARS.

Terry: WE KNOW SHOON

WILL HAVE OTHER NEEDS AS HE

DEVELOPS, AND WANTED HIS

GRANDPARENTS TO HAVE A WAY

TO PROVIDE FOR HIM.

SO WE REPLACED THEIR BROKEN

DOWN TRACTOR WITH A BRAND

NEW, ADVANCED MODEL.

IT IS A MUCH BETTER

TRACTOR THAN I EVER DREAMED

OF HAVING.

Terry: NO ONLY WILL

THIS NEW TRACTOR BOOST THEIR

OWN BUSINESS, BUT THE YANS

CAN RENT IT OUT TO OTHER

FARMERS, TOO.

WE MADE ABOUT $2500 JUST

FROM SPRING FARMING.

THAT'S DOUBLE WHAT WE USED

TO MAKE WITH OUR OLD

TRACTOR.

YOU TOTALLY TRANSFORMED MY

FAMILY'S LIFE.

I DON'T KNOW ANYONE ELSE WHO

WOULD DO WHAT YOU DID.

I THANK GOD FOR YOU.

YOU HAVE BEEN AN ANSWER TO

OUR PRAYERS.

Terry: IT'S AN AMAZING,

STORY, ISN'T IT?

HERE ARE THESE GRANDPARENTS,

IN THE LATER YEARS OF THEIR

LIVES, AND THEY TAKE ON

RAISING A GRANDCHILD WHO IS

DEAF, AND WHO HAS NO ABILITY

TO HEAR OR TO SPEAK.

THEY'RE TRYING TO DO THE

BEST THAT THEY CAN.

THIS LITTLE BOY HAS SOME

REALLY LEGITIMATE AND DEEP

PHYSICAL NEEDS.

AND THEY'RE MAKING JUST A

PITTANCE, AND THEN THE

TRACTOR BREAKS DOWN.

IT IS LIKE -- IT'S THE

PERFECT STORM.

BUT RIGHT INTO THE MIDST OF

THAT HOPELESSNESS YOU CAME.

IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

PARTNER, THAT'S THE KIND OF

DIFFERENCE YOU'RE MAKING ALL

AROUND THE WORLD, AND YOU'RE

DOING IT EVERY DAY.

IN THE LIVES OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE ASKING YOU

RIGHT NOW TO GO TO YOUR

PHONE AND JOIN WITH US.

BE A WORLD-CHANGER, MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE WHO ARE IN HOPELESS

SITUATIONS AND JUST NEED A

HAND-UP.

1-800-759-0700 IS THE NUMBER

TO CALL.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB," AND

WE'RE IN A CHALLENGE RIGHT

NOW, SO THAT MEANS WHEN YOU

CALL, WHATEVER LEVEL OF "700

CLUB" MEMBERSHIP YOU JOIN,

EVERY DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL

BE MATCHED DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR.

SO CALL.

GORDON?

Gordon: ONE OF THE

TOWNS HIT HARDEST BY SUPER

STORM SANDY WAS LITTLE EGG

HARBOR, NEW JERSEY.

MANY DIDN'T HAVE FLOOD

INSURANCE, SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS GIVING THEM

SOME MUCH-NEEDED HELP

REBUILDING THEIR HOMES.

Reporter: THE WORK OF

"OPERATION BLESSING"

CONTINUES TO LITTLE EGG

HARBOR, NEW JERSEY.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

VOLUNTEERS HAVE GUTTED AND

CLEANED OUT OVER 300 DAMAGED

HOUSES IN THE AREA.

HOMEOWNER ANNA ANDERSON IS

GRATEFUL FOR THE HELP.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

COME HERE AND DONE FOR US

THINGS THAT I KNOW WE COULD

NEVER HAVE DONE FOR

OURSELVES.

Reporter: LIKE MANY OF

THE RESIDENTS HERE, ANNA

DIDN'T HAVE FLOOD INSURANCE,

AND COULDN'T AFFORD TO

REPAIR HER HOME.

THAT'S WHY "OPERATION

BLESSING" TOOK THEIR EFFORTS

A STEP FURTHER, AND ARE IN

THE PROCESS OF RESTORING HER

HOME.

THEY HAVE REPLACED MY

ELECTRICITY, WHICH WAS ALL

UNDER WATER.

THEY HAVE TORN DOWN MY WALLS

AND ARE IN THE PROCESS OF

REPLACING THAT NOW.

IT IS JUST THINGS I KNOW I

COULD NOT HAVE AFFORDED TO

DO MYSELF.

THEY'RE SAVING OUR LIVES.

THEY ARE SAVING OUR LIVES.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

RESTORING MANY OTHER HOMES

AS WELL.

AND WITH YOUR HELP, WE'LL

CONTINUE TO STAND WITH THE

VICTIMS OF HURRICANE SANDY,

AND OTHERS WHO FACE

CATASTROPHES AROUND THE

WORLD.

THEY ARE NOTHING SHORT

AND NOTHING SHY OF WHAT

THEIR NAME SAYS.

THEY ARE A BLESSING.

THEY ARE A GOD-SENT.

Gordon: SAVING OUR

LIFE.

THAT IS AN INCREDIBLE

TESTIMONY OF WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN PEOPLE LIKE YOU CARE

ENOUGH TO GIVE.

AND WE ALL JOIN TOGETHER TO

SAY, WHEN DISASTERS STRIKE,

WE WANT TO STRIKE BACK.

AND WE WANT TO STRIKE BACK

WITH LOVE AND COMPASSION, TO

BE THERE AND HELP PEOPLE IN

THEIR TIME OF NEED.

IF THAT'S YOU, CALL US RIGHT

NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A PART OF EVERYTHING YOU'RE

DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF

"OPERATION BLESSING."

I WANT TO BE A PART OF CBN

INTERNATIONAL.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF "THE

700 CLUB."

I WANT TO JOIN.

CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

AND NOW I'VE GOT SOME GREAT

NEWS.

SOME CBN DONORS SAY $75,000

ISN'T ENOUGH ON A

CHALLENGE.

THEY WANT TO DOUBLE IT, TO

$150,000, AND GIVE US TO THE

END OF THE HOUR.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS.

AND WE ASK FOR

MULTIPLICATION.

FOR PEOPLE THAT HAVE MADE IT

POSSIBLE TO DOUBLE THIS

CHALLENGE, THAT THEY WOULD

ENJOY DOUBLE BLESSINGS THIS

YEAR.

BE WITH THEM AND ENCOURAGE,

FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, $150,000.

17 MINUTES AND 45 SECONDS TO

GO.

CALL US NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO KRISTI AT THE

PHONES.

Kristi: THANK YOU,

GORDON.

A RECENT STUDY SHOWS ABOUT

60% OF AMERICANS BELIEVE IN

HELL, WHICH MEANS THAT 40%

DON'T, WHICH IS CRAZY TO

ME.

IN "LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE,

PART TWO," YOU'RE GOING TO

MEET SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO

AGREE WITH THE 60%.

WHY?

BECAUSE THEY'VE BEEN THERE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Kristi: YOU KNOW, I'VE

TOLD THIS STORY BEFORE, AND

I'M GOING TO SHARE IT WITH

YOU RIGHT NOW.

I GOT SAVED WHEN I WAS FIVE

YEARS OLD BECAUSE OUR

PARENTS TOOK US TO CHURCH.

IT WAS A SATURDAY NIGHT, AND

THEY SHOWED US A MOVIE ABOUT

HELL.

I STILL REMEMBER EVERY SCENE

FROM THAT MOVIE.

WHEN I GOT HOME, I WENT TO

MY MOTHER, AND I SAID, MOM,

WHEN I DIE, WILL I GO TO

HELL?

AND SHE SAID, IT'S JOUR

CHOICE.

AND I SAID, WHAT DO YOU MEAN

IT'S YOUR CHOICE?

SHE SAID, THE ONLY WAY TO

GET TO HEAVEN IS THROUGH

JESUS CHRIST.

IF YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR

MOUTH, AND BELIEVE IN YOUR

HEART, THAT JESUS IS LORD,

YOU WILL BE SAVED.

FROM THAT POINT TO THIS

POINT, I SERVED THE LORD.

THAT WAS THE GREATEST

WITNESSING TOOL AT FIVE

YEARS OLD THAT THE MINISTRY

USED, AND IT BROUGHT ME TO

THE LORD.

NOW I HAVE IT IN MY HAND.

SO FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

BEEN PRAYING FOR, THAT HAVE

BEEN ON YOUR PRAYER LIST,

AND YOU WANT THEM TO COME

INTO THE KINGDOM, YOUR

CHILDREN, YOUR SPOUSES, YOUR

GRANDKIDS, THIS IS A GREAT

WITNESSING TOOL.

AND JUST LIKE THE DECISION

AND CHOICE THAT I MADE WHEN

I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD, THEY

CAN MAKE THAT SAME

DECISION.

BUT THE KEY IS, YOU'VE GOT

TO HAVE THIS IN YOUR HAND.

CALL IN NOW.

THIS IS "LIFE BEYOND THE

GRAVE, PART TWO," AND IT IS

LIFE, CHANGING. LIFE-- LIFE CHANGING.

AND IT IS TWO-FOLD, NOT ONLY

WILL BE YOU BLESSED AND

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO BLESS

OTHERS, BUT YOU'LL BE A

BLESSING TO NATIONS BECAUSE

YOU'LL BE PARTNERING WITH

CBN.

IF YOU CALL IN RIGHT NOW,

AND YOU SAY I WANT TO DO

"700 CLUB" GOLD, THAT'S $40

A MONTH, WE'LL GIVE YOU

THREE.

IF YOU SAY, KRISTI, I'VE GOT

MORE THAN THREE, THAT'S

OKAY.

WE CAN GIVE YOU FIVE IF YOU

JOIN AT THOUSAND CLUB

LEVEL.

THAT'S $884 A MONTH.

BUT HERE IS THE KEY: THE KEY

IS TO DO SOMETHING.

IF THERE ARE PEOPLE YOU'VE

BEEN PRAYING FOR, LET THIS

BE THE TOOL THAT GOD USES TO

REACH INTO THEIR HEARTS AND

CHANGE THEIR LIVES FOR

ETERNITY.

CALL AND JOIN NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

Gordon: THESE DAYS, IT

IS HARD TO FIND A GOOD

INVESTMENT FOR YOUR MONEY,

BUT THOMAS DID.

HE TURNED $3 INTO $3,000 IN

JUST A FEW DAYS.

Reporter: ERIC THOMAS

WORKS A DAY JOB AND HE IS

PASSIONATE ABOUT GIVING TO

CBN.

I'VE BEEN WATCHING THE

CLUB FOR A WE'LL.

WATCHING HURRICANE SANDY,

AND HOW THEY ARE TRULY

CARING FOR PEOPLE.

I JUST WANTED TO BE A PART

OF THAT.

Reporter: ERIC HAS

ALWAYS BEEN A TITHER, GIVING

AWAY 10% OF HIS INCOME.

I STARTED SEEING SOME

REWARDS COMING BACK FROM

TITHING, ESPECIALLY GIVING

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

Reporter: AND THEN HE

WAS LAID OFF FROM HIS SALES

JOB AND STAR STRUGGLED TO

GET BY.

I STARTED DONATING

PLASMA.

IT WAS A VERY LOW POINT IN

MY LIFE.

FOR PLASMA, YOU CAN ONLY GET

$30 A SESSION.

Reporter: BUT, STILL,

HE WANTED TO KEEP TITHING.

I WOULD TITHE AND USE THE

REST TO PUT GAS IN MY CAR.

Reporter: JUST THREE

DAYS AFTER HE DECIDED TO

KEEP TITHING, A FRIEND

OFFERED HIM A GIG PLAYING

DRUMS FOR A MUSICAL

PRODUCTION.

HE TOLD ME IT IS GOING TO

BE PAYING THREE GRAND A

MONTH.

I REALIZED THAT GOD

MULTIPLIED THOSE $3 INTO

BEING $3,000 IN AN INSTANT,

JUST BECAUSE I OPENED MY

HEART.

Reporter: WHEN THE

MUSICAL PRODUCTION ENDED,

ERIC WAS OUT OF A JOB

AGAIN.

I HAD TO MAKE IT UP IN MY

MIND THAT I NEEDED TO PRESS

ON, DESPITE MY

SURROUNDINGS.

Reporter: A FEW DAYS

LATER, HE LEARNED ABOUT A

JOB OPENING AT XEROX.

HE JUST HIRED ME RIGHT

THERE ON THE SPOT.

IT JUST ELEVATED MY FAITH

EVEN MORE.

GOD IS MY SOURCE.

WHETHER IT IS THROUGH

PRAYER, WHETHER IT IS GIVING

YOUR TITHES, EXPECT, EXPECT

FOR GOD TO MOVE.

Gordon: EXPECT GOD TO

MOVE.

HE WILL HONOR HIS WORD.

WE CALL IT THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

IT IS ONE OF THE LAWS OF THE

KINGDOM OF GOD.

AND IT'S ANNOUNCED BY JESUS

CHRIST IN LUKE, WHERE HE

SAYS, "GIVE AND IT WILL BE

GIVEN UNTO YOU."

SO OFTEN WE DON'T GIVE UNTIL

WE THINK WE HAVE ENOUGH TO

GIVE.

BUT GOD SAYS GIVE FIRST, AND

IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU.

NOW, ERIC, HE TOOK THIS TO

EXTREMES, WHERE HE IS SO IN

NEED OF MONEY, THAT HE IS

GIVING AWAY PLASMA AND

GETTING $30.

AND HE SAYS, I'M GOING TO

TAKE $3 OUT OF THAT $30, AND

I'M GOING TO GIVE.

THAT TURNED AROUND FOR HIM.

THAT SHOWED TO HIM THAT HE

BELIEVED IN THE PRINCIPLES

THAT GOD HAD LAID OUT.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THE SAME

THING, PUT THE SAME

PRINCIPLE INTO ACTION, WHERE

YOU GIVE AND THEN IT IS

GIVEN UNTO YOU.

DO THAT.

CALL US.

1-800-759-0700.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

JOIN US IN PREACHING THE

GOSPEL AROUND THE WORLD.

JOIN US IN HELPING PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD THROUGH

"OPERATION BLESSING."

JOIN EVERYTHING WE'RE

DOING.

HOW MUCH IS IT?

JUST $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY.

SOME OF YOU SAY I CAN GIVE

MORE.

I CAN GIVE AT "700 CLUB"

GOLD, THAT'S $40 A MONTH.

THOUSAND LEVEL IS $$1,000 A

YEAR.

AND 2500 CLUB IS $2500 A

YEAR, AND FOUNDERS LEVEL IS

$5,000 A YEAR.

WHETHER IT IS LIKE ERIC, $3,

$5, $10, $20 -- AT WHATEVER

LEVEL GOD IS SAYING GIVE,

TRY HIM, TEST HIM ON THIS,

AND SEE IF YOU WON'T GET THE

SAME RESULTS.

DO IT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: IN A REMOTE PART

OF SIBERIA, A SINGLE MOTHER

STRUGGLED TO SUPPORT HER

FAMILY.

WORN OUT, SHE SAID A

DESPERATE PRAYER.

AND YOU, CBN PARTNERS, WERE

THE ANSWER TO THAT PRAYER.

Reporter: IT IS KNOWN

FOR ITS FROZEN GROUND, SHORT

SUMMERS, AND BITTERLY COLD

WINTERS, WHEN TEMPERATURES

PLUMMET TO 60 BELOW ZERO.

MANY HERE EAT THE REINDEER.

THEY MAKE CLOTHING FROM

REINDEER HIDES, BUT THE

HIDES ARE SO TOUGH, HER OLD

SEWING MACHINE CAN'T GET

THROUGH THEM, SO SHE SEWS

EVERYTHING BY HAND.

WE CAN'T AFFORD A SEWING

MACHINE, BUT I WILL SEW ANY

WAY I CAN.

I PRAYED I COULD GET A

PROPER SEWING MACHINE.

IF I DID, I COULD MAKE

CLOTHING FOR MY CHILDREN AND

MAKE OTHER THINGS TO SELL.

Reporter: DELINA HAS

CARED FOR HER TWO DAUGHTERS

AND HER ELDERLY MOTHER

ALONE, FOR MORE THAN 10

YEARS.

MY MOTHER IS A VERY

HARD-WORKING PERSON.

OUR FATHER DRANK A LOT AND

LEFT OUR FAMILY.

MY SISTER, GRANDMA, AND I

HAVE SURVIVED ONLY BECAUSE

OF OUR MOTHER AND ALL THAT

SHE DOES FOR US.

I HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING,

CHOP THE WOOD, FETCH THE

WATER, AND EARN THE MONEY.

I'M PLAYING THE ROLE OF THE

MOTHER AND FATHER IN MY

FAMILY.

Reporter: WHEN DELINA'S

PASTOR TOLD US ABOUT HER AND

HER FAMILY, WE VISITED THEIR

HOME AND GAVE THEM AN ANSWER

TO HER PRAYERS.

A HEAVY-DUTY SEWING MACHINE,

STRONG ENOUGH TO MAKE

CLOTHING FROM THE REINDEER

HIDES.

YOU HAVE GIVEN ME SO MUCH

HOPE.

NOW I CAN SEW QUALITY

CLOTHING FOR MY CHILDREN AND

SELL TO OTHERS.

Reporter: THE REST OF

THE FAMILY IS HELPING OUT

WITH THE NEW BUSINESS, TOO.

NOW THEY HAVE WARM CLOTHES

AND A STEADY INCOME.

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MUCH

YOU HAVE HELPED US.

SEWING WITH THIS MACHINE IS

FAST AND EASY.

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.

Terry: HELPING PEOPLE

TWO," IS THAT I'M NOW, LIKE,

IT TOOK MY FEAR AWAY BECAUSE

I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING TO

Wendy: ISN'T THAT

AMAZING?

IF YOU JOIN AT THE THOUSAND

LEVEL, WE'RE GOING TO GIVE

WE HAVE JUST FIVE MINUTES

LEFT ON THE CLOCK, SO I'M

GOING TO THROW IT OVER TO MY

FRIEND, GORDON ROBERTS.

Gordon: YOU MAY THINK

YOU'RE STRUGGLING

FINANCIALING, BUT LET ME

INTRODUCE YOU TO A

HARD-WORKING FAMILY AND

HONDURAS.

THIS HARD-WORKING MOTHER AND

DAUGHTER EACH WORK

EIGHT-HOUR SHIFTS A DAY AND

THEY ONLY EARN $4 A DAY.

Reporter: TOGETHER AT

THE HOUSE, THEY WORK UNTIL

NOON, ASSEMBLING

FIRECRACKERS AND STRINGING

THEM TOGETHER.

FOR EIGHT HOURS WORK

TOGETHER, THEY WILL EARN A

DOLLAR.

ROSY DOES OTHER THINGS TO

HELP HER MOM, LIKE WATCHING

HER BROTHER AND SISTER WHILE

HER MOM GOES TO HER SECOND

JOB AS A MAID.

ROSY DOESN'T MIND TOO MUCH,

IT'S JUST SCHOOL SHE

MISSES.

Reporter: ROSY'S MOM IS

A SINGLE PARENT.

EVEN WORKING 80 HOURS A

WEEK, SHE STILL STRUGGLES TO

PROVIDE FOR HER FAMILY.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING"

DECIDED TO HELP ROSY AND HER

MOM, FATAMA.

FIRST WE TAUGHT BOTH MOTHER

AND DAUGHTER HOW TO SEW.

AND THEN WE TAUGHT THEM HOW

TO START AND RUN A SMALL

BUSINESSES DOING MENDING,

AND MAKING SMALL ITEMS LIKE

BLANKETS AND SHEETS.

THEN "OPERATION BLESSING"

GAVE THIS FAMILY A SEWING

MACHINE, AND ALL OF THE

PATTERNS, THREAD, AND CLOTH

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN BABY TASHA

WAS BORN WITH SERIOUS BIRTH

DEFECTS, HER PARENTS KNEW

THERE WAS NO WAY THEY COULD

HELP HER.

THEY BARELY MADE ENOUGH

MONEY TO SURVIVE.

AND TASHA NEEDED NOT ONE,

BUT TWO MAJOR OPERATIONS.

Reporter: 2-YEAR-OLD

TASHA IS NOT YET AWARE OF

HER CLEFT LIP OR THE LUMP

GROWING ON HER FOREHEAD, BUT

HER PARENTS CERTAINLY ARE.

AS I WAS HOLDING HER IN

MY ARMS, I LOOKED AT HER,

AND I COULDN'T HOLD BACK MY

TEARS.

I WONDER IF HER CONDITION

COULD BE FIXED.

WHENEVER I GIVE HER MILK OR

FOOD, IT CAME OUT OF HER

NOSE.

I WONDERED HOW LONG SHE

WOULD SURVIVE.

Reporter: TASHA'S

PARENTS LOVE HER VERY MUCH.

TASHA AND I ARE VERY

CLOSE, BECAUSE I CARE FOR

HER MOST OF THE TIME.

WHENEVER I HAVE TO GO TO THE

MARKET, SHE CRIES, WANTING

TO GO WITH ME.

Reporter: TASHA'S

PARENTS ARE CHRISTIANS.

THEY LIVE IN A SMALL TOWN IN

INDONESIA, WHERE LAMSON

EARNS A LIVING SELLING BIRD

FOOD.

WITH HIS SMALL INCOME, THEY

KNEW THAT PAYING FOR SURGERY

WAS OUT OF THE QUESTION.

CBN MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR

TASHA TO HAVE A CLEFT LIP

SURGERY FOR FREE.

THE NEWS WAS SUCH AN

ENCOURAGEMENT.

I THOUGHT, THIS IS GOD'S WAY

OF PROVIDING HEALING FOR MY

DAUGHTER.

Reporter: TASHA'S LEFT

CLEFT LIP SURGERY WAS

SUCCESSFUL.

WE THEN ARRANGED FOR A

SECOND SURGERY TO REMOVE THE

LUMP FROM HER FOREHEAD.

WE FEEL LIKE LEAPING FOR

JOY.

I AM THANKFUL FOR

EVERYONE WHO HELPED HER.

I PRAY THAT GOD WILL BLESS

CBN AND THAT THEY WILL KEEP

HELPING PEOPLE IN NEED.

Terry: IF YOU'RE A CBN

PARTNER, SHE IS OFFERING

PRAYERS OF GRATITUDE IN YOUR

NAME TO THE FATHER.

WE WANT TO BE PART OF

CHANGING LIVES LIKE TASHA,

AND GIVING THEM HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

THAT'S HOW IT ALL HAPPENS.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

1-800-759-0700.

Gordon: WE'VE GOT

$6,000 LEFT ON A $150,000

CHALLENGE.

WE'VE GOT 143 PHONES BUSY

RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE GOING TO COUNT

EVERYTHING ON THOSE PHONES

AND DECLARE VICTORY ON

THIS.

THERE IS THE BLUE NUMBER,

THE NUMBER OF PHONES THAT

ARE BUSY.

CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM FROM HEBREWS:

"NOW FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE

OF THINGS HOPED FOR, THE

EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT

SEEN."

THURSDAY JANUARY 24, 2013.

CBN.

700 CLUB TELETHON.

WELCOME TO THE 700 CLUB.

WOMEN ARE MOVING TO THE FRONT

LINES, THE JOINT CHIEFS OF

STAFF HAVE LIFTED THE

MILITARY'S BAN ON WOMEN IN

COMBAT.

BUT THE CHANGE WON'T TAKE

PLACE OVER NIGHT AND NOT

EVERYONE THINKS IT'S A GOOD

IDEA, EPHRAIM GRAM HAS --

GRAHAM HAS THE STORY.

THE STUNNING TURN AROUND, A

UNANIMOUS VOTE BY THE TOP

GENERALS REMOVES THE BAN IN

WOMEN SERVING IN DIRECT COMBAT

ROLES.

THEY'VE PROVEN TH*EMENTSES

TIME AND TIME AGAIN AND THEY'LL

GET THE RECOGNITION.

LEON WILL ACCEPT THE JOINT

RECOMMENDATION TODAY, THAT

MEANS THE MILITARY WILL BE

FULLY INTEGRATED FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN U.S. HISTORY, CRITICS

SAY PUTTING MEN AND WOMEN

TOGETHER IN COMBAT COULD HURT

UNIT EFFECTIVENESS, AND WILL

CREATE SEXUAL TENSION.

WOMEN ARE NOT PHYSICALLY ABLE

TO PERFORM MORE DEMANDING TASKS.

REPRESENTATIVE DUN KIN HUNTER

SAYS THE MOVEMENT IS OUT OF

LEFT FIELD.

THE QUESTION YOU HAVE TO ASK

YOURSELF EVERY TIME YOU MAKE A

CHANGE LIKE THIS, DOES IT

INCREASE THE COMBAT

EFFECTIVENESS OF THE MILITARY,

I THINK THE ANSWER IS NO, BUT

ADVOCATES FOR THE CHANGE POINT

OUT, WOMEN HAVE BEEN SERVING IN

DIRECT COMBAT ROLE FOR YEARS IN

IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.

THE REALITY OF THE BATTLE

FIELD HAS CHANGED SINCE THE VIE

ET YAM ERA, JUST ABOUT EVERYONE

IS SERVE INING A COMBAT

SITUATION.

WE WERE TAKING FIRE EVERYONE

WR*, I REMEMBER HEARING THE

BULLETS GOING BY ME AND HITTING

THE GROUND BESIDE ME, I SHOT

ONE GUY AND I SAW HIM FALL.

AN NBC POLL SAYS U.S.

SUPPORTS WOMEN IN COMBAT, THEY

MAKE UP 14 PIRS OF THE MILITARY

PERSON NEM.

VETERANS SAY LIFTING THE COMBAT

BAN MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR

FEMALES TO MAKE THE MILITARY A

LASTING CAREER.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

IN TODAY'S WARFARE, IT'S

HARD TO DETERMINE WHERE THE

FRONT LINES ARE WHEN YOU'RE

DEALING WITH AN INSURGENCY IN

AFGHANISTAN, WHERE DO THE LINES

BEGIN AND END AND I THINK IT'S

A RECOGNITION THAT IF YOU'RE IN

THE MILITARY TODAY, YOU'RE IN

FRONT LINE COMBAT WHEREVER YOU

ARE, AND SO THAT ON SOME LEVELS

IS A GOOD THING, BUT WE

PROBABLY NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT

WHAT ISRAEL DID, THE ISRAELI

DEFENSE FORM ALLOWED WOMEN IN

COMBAT AND HAD TO PULL BACK

FROM THAT BECAUSE THEY

DISCOVERED IN COMBAT THE MEN

RUSHED TO THE DEFENSE OF THE

WOMEN IN THEIR PLATOONS AND

STOPPED FOCUSING ON THE ENEMY

AND STARTED PROTECTING, AND SO

WHEN WE SEE THAT, WE'LL SEE AND

WE MAY BE INTO SOME GRAND

SOCIAL EXPERIMENT.

WELL, THE PRESIDENT OF EGYPT IS

BACK IN THE NEWS WITH MORE

CONTROVERSIAL REMARKS AND THE

INTERESTING THING IS HE WAS

QUOTING THE CAR RAN AND YOU'RE

NOT HEARING THAT ANYWHERE ELSE,

AND IF WE CAN GET THE QUOTE UP

FROM THE KORAN, HERE IT IS,

SOME OF WHOM WERE TURNED INTO

APES AND SWAN, THE KORAN IS

TALK ABOUT JEWS AND THAT IS

WHAT THE PRESIDENT OF EGYPT WAS

SAYING, LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY

FROM THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

THEY SAY THE AMERICAN MEDIA

MADE TOO MUCH OF HIS REMARKS

ABOUT JEWS AND HE IMPLIED THE

REASON WAS BECAUSE THAT JEWS

CONTROLLED THE MEDIA HERE, HE

CAME UNDER FIRE FROM CALLING

JEWS BLOOD SUCKERS AND THE

DESEN ACCIDENTS OF APES AND

PIGS, CHILDREN MUST BE NURSED

ON HATRED AND JEWS WHO SUPPORT

THEM.

FOREIGN POLICY MAGAZINE ROARS

MOR SI TOLD THEM THE U.S. MEDIA

IS MAKING A BIG DEAL OF ITS

COMMENTS BECAUSE IT'S

CONTROLLED BY "CERTAIN FORCES".

DEMOCRATIC OFFICER SAID HE DID

USE THE PHRASE THE JEWS BUT IT

WAS OBVIOUS TO ALL THE SENATORS

THAT'S WHAT HE MEANT.

THE U.S. HAS GONE AHEAD WITH

ITS [INAUDIBLE] OF FOUR FM

FETTER JETS, THE JETS LEFT THE

NAVAL STATION TUESDAY, THE U.S.

WILL GIVE MORE HIGH-TECH F16'S

ALONG WITH TWO ABRAHAM'S TANKS

TO EGYPT THIS YEAR, IT'S ALL

PART OF A FOREIGN AID PACKAGE,

SOME SAY THE U.S. SHOULD NOT GO

AHEAD WITH THAT DEAL GIVEN

MORSI'S REMARKS.

CONGRESS HAS ANOTHER DEBATE

OVER TAXES AND SPENDING FOR

NOW, THE HOUSE HAS PASSED A

PLAN TO LET THE GOVERNMENT

OPERATE OVER THREE MORE MONTHS

BEFORE FEDERAL SPENDING, THEY

CAME UP WITH A NEW BUDGET PLAN,

THEY SAY IT WILL BUDGET IN TEN

YEARS, DEMOCRATS SAY THOSE CUTS

ARE TOO DEEP AND THEY WANT MORE

TAX HEIGHTS, THE DEMOCRATS GOT

MORE TAXES AS PART OF THE

FISCAL CLIFF DEAL AND NOW IT'S

TIME TO FOCUS ON MORE CUTS.

THE REPUBLICANS ARE TALKING

REALLY BIG BUT WILL THEY HOLD

THE DEMOCRAT'S FEET ON THE FIRE

IN THIS ISSUE.

I KIND OF DOUBT IT AND WHEN

YOU LOOK AT IT FROM A DEFICIT

STANDPOINT, THEY ARE ALL

RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TRILLION

DEFICIT THAT OUR GRANDCHILDREN

WILL ENJOY, HOW CAN YOU PAY IT,

I DON'T THINK WE HAVE TEN YEARS

TO BALANCE THINGS.

IF WE DON'T START LOOKING AT

BOTH REVENUE AND SPENDING CUTS

AND HOW DO WE CHANGE THE

REQUIREMENTS FOR BEING PART OF

SOME OF THESE FEDERAL PROGRAMS

AND REDUCE THE OVERALL CASH

OUTLAY THAT WE'RE GIVING AWAY

ON A YEARLY BASIS, IF THIS

DEFICIT STARTS TO TOP 20

TRILLION, IS IT GOING TO GET TO

25 TRILLION IN THAT 10 YEAR

PERIOD.

AT WHAT POINT IS IT COMPLETELY

UNAFFORDABLE AND I WISH THE

DEBATE WERE ON THAT AS OPPOSED

TO NO TAXES, NO SPENDING CUTS,

WE NEED A COMBINATION OF BOTH,

REVENUE AND CUTS IN ORDER TO

BALANCE OUR BUDGET.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF THE

700 CLUB RIGHT AFTER THIS.

WELL, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

IS DEBATING LOU TO BUDGET THE

BUDGET, YOU CAN MAKE

RESOLUTIONS FOR 2013 OF HOW YOU

CAN GET AHEAD, YOU DON'T HAVE

TO BE BEHIND ON YOUR BILLS, YOU

DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT

FINANCES AND HERE'S A STORY FOR

YOU, IT'S SHAWN AND RACHEL,

THEY WERE BEHIND ON THEIR

BILLS, THE COLLECTION AGENCIES

WERE CALLING, THEY WERE DOWN TO

THEIR LAST 80 DOLLARS AND

HERE'S HOW THEY USED IT TO

CHANGE THEIR MONEY.

LIKE MANY COUPLES, SHAWN AND

RACHEL WERE JUST ONE PAYCHECK

AWAY FROM FINANCIAL DISASTER.

SHAWN HADN'T SEEN A PAY

INCREASE IN FOUR YEARS DUE TO A

SALARY FREEZE AT HIS JOB.

MANY TIMES, THEY SIMPLY DIDN'T

HAVE ENOUGH TO PAY THEIR BILLS.

WE DIDN'T GET TO FORE CLOSE,

WE DID GET THOSE NOTICES IN THE

MAIL THAT WE'RE BEHIND ON OUR

MORTGAGE.

THERE WERE TIMES WHEN WE

WERE LIVING PAYCHECK TO

PAYCHECK AND WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW

A CERTAIN BILL WAS GOING TO GET

PAID SO IT WAS STRESSFUL FOR US.

ALTHOUGH THEY BOTH WORKED

CORPORATE JOBS, THEY KNEW THEY

NEEDED SOMETHING TO FALL BACK

ON, THEY STARTED CATERING, BUT

STARTING A BUSINESS PUT THEM

FURTHER BEHIND ON THEIR BILLS.

BILL CORRECTORS WOULD

THREATEN US WITH PHONE CALLS,

COURT NOTICES WHERE WE HAD TO

GO TO CART BECAUSE OF UNPAID

BILLS.

SHAWN GOT A SECOND JOB

WORKING THE MID NIGHT SHIFT AS

A MEATPACKER BUT IT STILL

WASN'T ENOUGH.

I WAS STRESSED OUT,

OVERWORKED, IT WAS A VERY

HUMBLING EXPERIENCE FOR ME.

SHAWN AND RACHEL WERE

GENEROUS WITH THEIR GIVING BUT

THEY DIDN'T ALWAYS TITHE, ONE

DAY THEY HEARD A MESSAGE ON

TITHING THAT MADE THEM REALIZE

THEY NEEDED TO TRUST GOD, THEY

PUT THEIR LAST 80 DOLLARS INTO

THAT OFFERING BASKET THAT

SUNDAY.

I FELT GOOD, I FELT LIKE GOD

WAS TALKING TO US.

I KNEW IT WAS THE RIGHT THING

TO DO AND I KNEW HE WAS GOING

TO PROVIDE.

SHAWN SOLD A VEHICLE HE

OWNED TO BRING IN EXTRA MONEY,

THE BUYER OFFERED HIM 8

THOUSAND DOLLARS, WELL OVER

WHAT HE THOUGHT IT WAS WORTH.

WE WERE ABLE TO GET CURRENT

ON ALL OUR BILL AND IS WE

DIDN'T THINK WE WERE DRAWN INTO

DEBT ANYMORE.

MY BROTHER-IN-LAW, WHEN WERE

WERE TELLING HIM WHAT HAPPENED,

HE SAID GOD GAVE IT BACK TO YOU

100 FOLD, HE ASKED YOU TO TEST

IT AND YOU DID AND HE GAVE IT

BACK TO YOU.

IN 2010, SHAWN LOST HIS

CORPORATE JOB, WITH HIS

SEVERANCE, HE DECIDED TO LIVE

HIS DREAM AND OPEN UP A

RESTAURANT.

I DIDN'T REALLY WANT TO

START ANOTHER COMPANY AND I

WANTED TO HAVE A RESTAURANT

BECAUSE I KNEW I HAD A GOOD

PRODUCT.

BOTH OF US WERE IN AGREEMENT.

THEY OPENED THE CUTLASS

GRILL IN CHESAPEAKE, VIRGINIA.

HE COOKS FOOD AMAZINGLY WELL

AND WE KNEW HE HAD A GREAT

PRODUCT AND WE KNEW AS LONG AS

WE GLORIFIED GOD THAT HE WAS

GOING TO GROW OUR BUSINESS FOR

US AND HE CERTAINLY HAS.

INITIALLY WE SAW A JUMP IN

30%, YEAR OVER YEAR, IT JUMPED

115%, LOOKING FROM DECEMBER OF

2011 TO 2010, IT WENT UP 198%,

SO BUSINESS HAS BEEN REALLY,

REALLY GOOD.

SHAWN AND RACHEL HAVE SEEN

GOD BLESS THEIR OBEDIENCE TO

TITHE AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO

TRUST GOD AND BE OBEDIENT TOO.

I WILL INBACKER ENCOURAGE

EVERYONE TO PUT THEIR FAITH IN

GOD AND TEST THEM WITH YOUR

TITHES AND OFFERING.

HE HAS A GOOD PLAN FOR YOU,

AND WHEN YOU'RE IN TRYING

TIMES, FALL BACK ON THE LORD

AND HIS WORD AND HE WILL

PROVIDE.

HE WILL PROVIDE.

HERE'S A PROMISE HE GIVES TO US

OF US, IT'S FROM MALACHI,

CHAPTER 3, BRING ALL THE TITHES

INTO THE STOREHOUSE, IF THERE

MAY BE FOOD IN MY HOUSE, IF I

WILL NOT OPEN FOR YOU THE

WINDOWS OF HEAVEN AND POUR OUT

A BLESSING THAT THERE WILL NOT

BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE IT.

THAT PROMISE IS FOR YOU, YOU

LOOK AT SHAWN AND RACHEL'S

STORY AND IT'S INCREDIBLE THE

TURN AROUND, AND IT'S ONE OF

THOSE UNBELIEVABLE ONES WHERE

IT'S GOOD FOR SHAWN TO BE LET

GO FROM HIS WORK BECAUSE THEN

HE WAS ABLE TO PURSUE HIS DREAM.

HE'S A WONDERFUL CHEF AND FOR

HIM TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THE

SEVERANCE AND SAY I'M GOING TO

NOW OPEN MY DREAM RESTAURANT

AND GOD SUPPLIES WHAT HE NEEDED

BOTH TO OPEN AND THEN TO

INCREASE, AND AN INCREASE OF

198% OVER A YEAR, PHENOMENAL IN

A RESTAURANT BUSINESS, ALL

BECAUSE SHAWN AND RACHEL SAY WE

LIKE TITHING, WE LIKE GIVING

AND WE GIVE AND GOD SUPPLIES

OUR NEED.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM, YOU CAN LEAN

ON HIM, SO IN 2013, RESOLVE

THAT THIS YEAR, YOU'RE GOING TO

TRUST GOD.

YOU'RE GOING TO LEAN INTO HIS

PROMISES AND DO IT HIS WAY,

THEN THE BLESSINGS COME.

WELL, SCOTT AND BRANDY SPIRES

WERE 35 THOUSAND DOLLARS IN

DEBT AND THEY PROMISED THE BANK

THEY WOULD HAVE THE MONEY AT

THE END OF THE DAY, THERE WAS

ONE APPROXIMATE SCOTT AND

BRANDY HAD NO IDEA WHERE THEY

WERE GOING TO GET THE MONEY.

WE HAD A TOUGH TIME PAYING

OUR BILLS.

WE HAD A LITTLE APARTMENT

AND THIS JUNKY CAR.

WE HAD ONE PIECE OF

FURNITURE AFTER WE GOT MARRIED.

LIKE MANY NEWLYWEDS, SCOTT

AND BRANDY STARTED OUT WITH

LITTLE, BRANDY HAD GRADUATED

FROM COLLEGE AND STARTED AT A

TUTORING COMPANY, SCOTT WAS

FINISHING HIS DEGREE AND WAS

WORKING PART TIME.

BRANDY AND I REALLY HAD TO

SEEK THE LORD ABOUT HOW WE WERE

TO GET OUT OF THIS FINANCIAL

SITUATION WHICH WAS TOUGH.

ER

THEN BRANDY LEARNED THE

TUTORING COMPANY SHE WAS

WORKING AT WAS CLOSING BECAUSE

THE OWNERS WERE LEAVING THE

STATE.

THEY WERE REQUESTED TO BUY THE

BUSINESS, THEY HAD TOSSES OF

DOLLARS OF CREDIT CARD AND

STUDENT LOAN DEBT.

I SAID TO BRANDY, IT'S GOING

TO BE OKAY BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE

GOD HAS PUT IN MY HEART THAT

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO HAVE IS THAT

BUSINESS.

THEY SPOKE TO THE TUTORING

BUSINESS AND THEY AGREED THE

COUPLE THEY PAID THEM OUT OF

THE MONEY THEY WOULD BRING IN

THE FIRST YEAR, NOW THEY HAD

THEIR FIRST BUSINESS AND A LOT

OF HARD WORK AHEAD OF THEM.

THE FIRST YEAR WAS

FINANCIALLY VERY ROUGH.

WITH PAYROLL AND OTHER

EXPENSES, SCOTT AND BRANDY WERE

NOT CLEARING MUCH PR THE

BUSINESS BUT THEY LEARNED A

LESSON THAT WOULD TURN THEIR

FINANCES AROUND.

THE FIRST DAY I LEARNED

ABOUT TITHING, WE WERE SITTING

DOWN WATCHING 700 CLUB, I

LOOKED AT BRANDY AND I SAID I

THINK WE NEED TO START GIVING,

WE GAVE 20 DOLLARS.

EVEN JUST 20 DOLLARS, WHEN

YOU HAVE TO BORROW MONEY FOR

FOOD SOMETIMES, IT SEEMED SILLY

AND UNREASONABLE TO GIVE EVEN

20 DOLLARS.

IF THEY DIDN'T HAVE MONEY,

THEY GAVE AWAY THEIR

POSSESSIONS.

THERE WAS ONE TIME WHERE WE

NEEDED 3500 DOLLARS BY 5:00.

AND GOD JUST PUT ON MY

HEART, HE SAID YOU GAVE, YOU

DID WHAT YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO

DO, EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

OKAY.

THE DAY THE MONEY WAS DUE,

THE BANK CALLED SCOTT.

SO, THE BANK SAID WHAT ARE

YOU GOING TO DO AND I SAID I

WILL BRING IN A CHECK BEFORE

YOU CLOSE, SO I SAID, DO YOU

KNOW SOMEONE THAT'S GOING TO

BRING YOU A CHECK, AND I SAID,

NO, BUT I WILL BRING IT IN

BEFORE YOU CLOSE, BEFORE 5:00,

I WILL BRING IN THE CHECK AND

THEY SAID OKAY *.

A FEW HOURS LATER, A NEW

STUDENT'S MOTHER WALKER IN AND

PAID FOR A TUTORING PACKAGE IN

FULL.

SHE COMES IN AND SAYS I WANT

TO BUY 140 LET'S SONS UP FRONT

WHERE MOST PEOPLE BUY 8 OR 9,

IT WAS 4:30, WE HAD 40 MINUTES

TO GET TO THE BANK, SHE WROTE

US A 4 THOUSAND DOLLAR CHECK.

IN JUST A FEW YEARS, THEIR

TUTORING BUSINESS HAS GROWN

FROM 7 STUDENTS TO 70, THEY

BOUGHT A HOUSE AND PAID OFF 40

THOUSAND DOLLARS IN DEBT.

WE GIVE MORE THAN WHAT WE

MADE BEFORE WE GOT THE

BUSINESS, SO IT'S BEEN

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING ABOUT HOW

GOD HAS BLESSED US COMPLETELY

WITH OUR PERSONAL AND BUSINESS

FINANCES.

SCOTT AND BRANDY, THEIR

STORY CAN BE YOUR STORY, TO

THOSE WHO USE WELL WHAT THEY

ARE GIVEN, EVEN MORE WILL BE

GIVEN AND THEY WILL HAVE AN

ABUNDANCE, BUT FROM THOSE WHO

DO NOTHING, EVEN WHAT LITTLE

THEY HAVE WILL BE TAKEN AWAY

AND SCOTT AND BRANDY RESOLVE TO

SAY WE'RE GOING TO USE WELL

WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN US AND WHEN

THEY PUT THAT PRINCIPLE INTO

ACTION, THEN AMAZING THINGS

STARTED HAPPENING IN THEIR

LIFE, THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU,

IF YOU JUST START TRUSTING GOD

WITH YOUR FINANCES.

NOW, IF I CAN GET A DRUM ROLL,

I HAVE SOME GREAT NEWS, SOME

CBN PARTNERS SAY WE LOVE LIVING

A LIFE OF GENEROSITY, WE LOVE

GIVING AND THEY WANT TO

CHALLENGE OTHERS TO GIVE SO

THEY'LL MATCH YOU DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR ANYTHING YOU GIVE IN THE

NEXT 30 MINUTES UP TO 150

THOUSAND DOLLARS.

[APPLAUSE].

GORDON?

TODAY, VAN WILSON LOVES

BEING HIS OWN JOB, HE RUNS HIS

OWN BUSINESS, NOW HE'S LIVING

ON DISABILITY AND WONDERING HOW

TO PAY HIS BILLS.

VAN WILSON ENJOYS PLAYING

WHEN HE'S NOT WORKING AS A

MARKETING CONSULTANT, BUT HE

BROKE HIS HIP.

I GOT UP ONE MORNING AND

FELL TO THE FLOOR, I HAD NO

WARNING THAT MY HIP WAS GOING

TO GIVE MY ANY TROUBLE, IT WENT

TOTALLY OUT.

VAN NEEDED A HIP REPLACEMENT

AND BACK SURGERY, HE WAS OUT OF

WORK FOR TWO YEARS.

THERE WERE SEVERAL YEARS

BEFORE THAT AND HERE I AM WITH

BOXES AND A LITTLE PLACE AND A

BRAND NEW NEIGHBORHOOD WITH NOT

MANY FRIENDS.

I REALLY LOST EVERYTHING I HAVE.

VAN'S FAITH WAS STRONG, BUT

TIME DURING HIS RECOVERY WASN'T

EASY.

HE WAS ON A SHARPLY LIMITED

INCOME UNTIL HE WAS TOLD HE

COULD TAKE EARLY RETIREMENT

FROM HIS JOB.

IT WAS REALLY GREAT TO SEE

GOD'S TIMING, IT CAME RIGHT ON

THE EXACT MONTH THAT I HAD TO

HAVE SOMETHING.

AS HE HEALED, HE READ HIS

BIBLE AND WATCHED TV, THAT'S

WHEN HE SAW A STORY ON THE 700

CLUB.

THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT THEY

WERE GIVING THEIR TITHES, THEIR

BUSINESS WAS COMING BACK AROUND

OR FITTING THINGS CERTAIN

THINGS IN THEIR LIFE AGAIN AND

I SAID I'M GOING TO DO THAT.

MONEY WAS STILL TIGHT BUT

VAN DECIDED TO JOIN THE 700

CLUB.

AND THAT SET THE WHOLE THING

IN MOTION.

I WAS WAITING ON GOD BUT GOD

WAS WAITING ON ME.

A FEW DAYS LATER, HE GOT A

CALL FROM A FRIEND ABOUT A NEW

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY SELLING

HEALTH AND FITNESS PRODUCTS AND

VAN COULD WORK FROM HOME.

IT'S GONE BETTER AND QUICKER

THAN ANYTHING I EVER DONE, SO I

REALLY BELIEVE THE WAY IT

WORKED, THAT IT WAS GOD WHO DID

IT.

AFTER A YEAR ON HIS JOB, VAN

GOT A CALL FROM HIS BUSINESS

PARTNER.

ER

HE SAID YOU DID OVER A

MILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS IN A

YEAR.

AT ONE POINT, WE HAD A PRODUCT

SHORTAGE, NOW WE HAVE THREE

PLANTS PRODUCING 24 HOURS A

DAY, SO THEY'RE A YEAR AHEAD OF

THEIR PROJECTIONS.

TODAY VAN IS IN THE SAME

BUSINESS, HE'S EXCITED ABOUT

HIS FUTURE.

GOD'S MET MY NEEDS AND HE'S

DONE BETTER THAN THAT, IF HE'LL

DO IT FOR ME, HE'LL DO IT FOR

YOU AND HE'LL DO IT FOR

EVERYBODY.

HE'LL DO IT FOR EVERYBODY

BUT WHAT IS HE WAITING FOR,

LISTEN TO WHAT VAN SAID, WE'RE

WAITING ON GOD AND GOD'S

WAITING FOR US, HE'S WAITING

FOR US TO PUT INTO PRACTICE THE

PRINCIPLES HE'S LAID OUT AND

ONE OF THE PRINCIPLES, WE CALL

THAT THE LAW OF RECIPROCITY, IT

COMES FROM THE GOSPEL OF LUKE,

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO

YOU, SO OFTEN, WE THINK I HAVE

TO HAVE ENOUGH MONEY BEFORE I

CAN GIVE, BUT GOD SAYS GIVE

FIRST AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS,

HERE'S A PROMISE FROM PROVERBS

CHAPTER 11, IT'S POSSIBLE TO

GIVE AWAY AND GET RICHER, YES,

THE LIBERAL MAN SHALL BE RICH

BY WATERING OTHERS, HE WATERS

HIMSELF, VAN MADE THE DECISION,

I'M GOING TO WATER OTHERS AND

IN THAT PROCESS, GOD TURNED HIS

LIFE AROUND, HERE HE WAS

DIVORCED, ON DISABILITY, HAD TO

MOVE INTO A SMALL APARTMENT

SURROUNDED BY BOXES, HAD NO

FRIENDS.

GOD TURNED HIS LIFE AROUND.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU

JUST TRUST HIM.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO TRUST GOD,

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN THE

700 CLUB, SAY I WANT TO BE A

PART OF PREACHING THE GOSPEL

AROUND THE WORLD, I WANT TO BE

A PART OF OPERATION BLESSING

AROUND THE WORLD WHERE WE BLESS

PEOPLE IN TANGIBLE WAYS, I WANT

TO BE A PART OF EVERYTHING THAT

CBN DOES, CALL US RIGHT NOW,

WELL, JENNIFER DICK ENSON WAS

LIVING HER DREAM JOB, SHE HAD A

GOOD JOB, A BEAUTIFUL HOME, A

COMPANY CAR, WHEN THE RECESSION

HIT, JENNIFER WATCHED IT ALL

DISAPPEAR OVER NIGHT.

JENNIFER DICK CONS ALWAYS

WANTED TO LIVE IN A BIG HOUSE

IN THE COUNTRY, SHE WORKED AS

AN ACCOUNT MANAGER TO ACHIEVE

HER GOAL, SHE NEVER THOUGHT HER

LIVELIHOOD WAS IN JEOPARDY.

I NEVER DREAMED THAT I WOULD

FIND MYSELF UNEMPLOYED.

BUT THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT

HAPPENED WHETHER THE BUSINESS

SHE WORKED FOR WENT BANKRUPT

OVER NIGHT.

AND THEY SAID THAT WE MAY

NOT GET OUR LAST PAYCHECKS, WE

MOST LIKELY WOULD NOT BE

REIMBURSED FOR ANY OUTSTANDING

EXPENSES, THAT THE FOLLOWING

MONDAY, OUR INSURANCE BENEFITS

WOULD CEASE TO EXIST.

THOSE THINGS COMBINED COST

JENNIFER CLOSE TO 5 THOUSAND

DOLLARS, IN ADDITION, SHE LOST

HER COMPANY CAR AND HER GAS

CARD, WHICH MEANT LARGE BILLS

SHE HAD NEVER HAD BEFORE.

I'M SINGLE SO THERE WAS NO

ONE TO SHARE THE EXPENSES WITH,

THE MORTGAGE AND THE EXPENSES,

HAVING A HOME WAS ALL ON ME.

SO, WHEN HER SAVINGS RAN

OUT, JENNIFER PUT HER HOUSE ON

THE MARKET, MONTH AFTER MONTH,

SHE LOOKED FOR WORK, SHE HAD

BEEN A FAITHFUL CBN PARTNER

SINCE 1998 AND WASN'T SURE IF

SHE COULD CONTINUE GIVING.

I WAS TEMPTED TO DECREASE MY

GIVING OR MAYBE STOP GIVING ALL

TOGETHER FOR A WHILE, BUT I

JUST SETTLED IT EARLY THAT IT

WAS NOT A CHOICE FOR ME, THAT

GOD HAD BEEN FAITHFUL TO ME.

THERE WAS NO WAY THAT I WAS

GOING TO GIVE TO HIM AND GIVE

TO THE NEEDS OF OTHER PEOPLE

THROUGH OPERATION BLESSING AND

ORPHANS' PROMISE AND CBN AND

THAT THE LORD WOULD NOT MAKE A

WAY FOR ME.

JENNIFER WAS AT CHURCH ONE

SUNDAY WHEN SOMEONE GAVE HER AN

IDEA.

ONE OF THE ELDERS SUGGESTED

THAT I BE VERY SPECIFIC IN MY

PETITION TO GOD ABOUT THE TYPE

OF JOB THAT I WANTED, THE

POSITION THAT I WANTED, AND ALL

OF THE DETAILS.

JENNIFER MADE HER LIST AND

DIDN'T HOLD BACK.

SHE CONTACTED THE 700 CLUB AND

ASKED CBN TO AGREE WITH HER IN

PRAYER.

THEN WHILE SHE WAS WATCHING A

SPECIAL 700 CLUB WEBCAST

DEDICATED TO OVERCOMING

FINANCIAL DIFFICULTY, SHE GOT A

CALL.

AND IT WAS THE COMPANY THAT

I HAD WRITTEN DOWN ON THE

PAPER, THAT WAS ONLY A WEEK

LATER, THEY SAID THEY HAD MY

RESUME AND I WAS ONE OF THE

CANDIDATES THEY WANTED TO

INTERVIEW.

TWO MONTHS LATER, JENNIFER

GOT THE JOB.

I GOT EVERYTHING THAT I

WROTE ON THAT LIST, THE

POSITION, THE SALARY, THE

COMPANY CAR.

JENNIFER DIDN'T HAVE TO SELL

HER HOUSE AFTER ALL.

IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST

EXCITING PARTS OF GETTING MY

JOB WAS TO PICK UP THE PHONE

AND CALL THE REALTOR AND SAY,

YOU KNOW, I'M TAKING MY HOUSE

OFF THE MARKET.

AND WHAT ABOUT ALL THE

SAVINGS SHE LOST?

I JUST RECENTLY GOT MY TAX

RETURNS AND I WAS ABLE TO PUT

THAT INTO SAVING, SO I'M SAVING

AGAIN, AND I AM GETTING BACK ON

TRACK AND GOD IS RESTORING ME.

I THINK IT'S A MIRACLE.

NOW JENNIFER ENCOURAGES

OTHERS WHO ARE GOING THROUGH

TOUGH ECONOMIC TIMES.

WHEN WE ARE IN TIMES OF

NEED, THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE

THE BEST TIME THE GIVE TO

OTHERS AND TO JUST RELEASE AND

LET GOD HAVE EVERYTHING AND

GIVE THE PRINCIPLE OF

RECIPROCITY AN OPPORTUNITY TO

WORK.

HE DID IT FOR ME AND I KNOW

THAT HE WILL DO IT FOR YOU.

HE WILL DO IT FOR YOU

BECAUSE HE HONORS HIS WORD.

HERE IT IS FROM PSALM 37, TRUST

IN THE LORD AND DO GOOD, THEN

YOU WILL LIVE SAFELY IN THE

LAND AND PROSPER, TAKE THE

LIGHT IN THE LORD AND HE WILL

GIVE YOU YOUR HEART'S DESIRE.

ONE OF THE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT

JENNIFER'S STORY, SHE ACTUALLY

WROTE DOWN WHAT HER HEART'S

DESIRE WAS, WHAT SHE WANTED AND

WHEN GOD ANSWERED HER PRAYERS,

SHE KNEW EXACTLY THAT IT WAS

GOD ANSWERING BECAUSE IT WAS

EXACTLY WHAT SHE WROTE DOWN.

BE SPECIFIC IN YOUR PRAYERS, BE

SPECIFIC IN HOW YOU APPROACH

GOD AND WHEN YOU APPROACH GOD

KNOWING THAT YOU'RE DOING IT IN

ACCORDANCE WITH HIS RULES AND

HIS LAWS AND ONE OF THE LAWS OF

THE KINGDOM OF GOD, WE CALL IT

THE LAW OF RECIPROCITY, GIVE

AND IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU,

JENNIFER PUT ALL THAT DOWN AND

SHE SAID THIS IS WHAT I'M DOING

AND I KNOW GOD WILL HONOR HIS

WORD SO GOD GAVE HER HER

HEART'S DESIRE BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT HE WANTS TO DO.

WE DON'T HAVE TO TALK HIM INTO

IT AND ARGUE AND BEG AND PLEAD,

WE HAVE TO DO IT IN HIS WAY AND

ASK SPECIFICALLY AND THEN THE

PROMISES COME.

GENEROUS GIVING, GIVE US A CALL

BUY THEIR DEAF GRANDSON A

HEARING AID.

CALLED, THE YOUNG'S COULDN'T

AFFORD THAT.

AFTER MY OLD TRACTOR BROKE

DOWN, I ONLY MADE 40 DOLLARS A

MONTH AND MY GRANDSON NEEDED 2

THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR SPEECH

THERAPY.

CBN AND OUR MISSION IN CHINA.

I TOLD MY HUSBAND, YOU NEED

TO PRAY TO GOD AND ASK HIM TO

MAKE CBN SAY YES TO OUR REQUEST

TO HELP.

AND WE DID.

CBN SENT CHU TO SPEECH THERAPY,

NOW HE CAN COMMUNICATE JUST

LIKE THE OTHER KIDS HIS AGE.

CHU IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT

THAN HE WAS BEFORE.

WHEN HE SPEAKS, IT'S LIKE

POETRY TO MY EARS.

WE KNOW CHU WILL HAVE OTHER

NEEDS AS HE DEVELOPS AND WANTED

HIS GRANDPARENTS TO HAVE A WAY

TO PROVIDE FOR HIM SO WE

REPLACED THE TRACTOR WITH A

BRAND NEW ADVANCED MODEL.

IT'S A MUCH BETTER TRACTOR

THAN I EVER DREAMED OF HAVING.

NOT ONLY WILL THIS TRACTOR

BOOST THEIR OWN BUSINESS BUT

THEY CAN RENT IT OUT TO OTHER

FARMERS AS WELL.

WE MADE DOUBLE FROM SPRING

FARMER.

HE TOTALLY TRANSFORMED MY

FAMILY'S LIFE.

I THANK GOD FOR YOU, YOU HAVE

BEEN AN ANSWER TO OUR PRAYERS.

A LITTLE BOY IF RURAL CHINA

LIVING IN AN AREA OF POVERTY,

HE CAN'T HEAR OR SPEAK, WHAT

KIND OF A FUTURE DO YOU THINK

HE'S GOING TO HAVE?

GORDON?

IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO

FIND A RISK-FREE INVESTMENT FOR

YOUR MONEY, BUT ERIK THOMAS

DID, HE TURNED 3 DOLLARS INTO 3

THOUSAND IN A FEW SHORT DAYS.

JAN'S DRUMMER ERIK THOMAS

WORKS A DAY JOB TO MAKE ENDS

MEET.

I'VE BEEN WATCHING THE CLUB

FOR A WHILE AND SEE HATING

THEY'RE DOING WITH OPERATION

BLESSING AND RELIEF FOR

HURRICANE SANDY, HOW THEY TRULY

ARE CARING FOR PEOPLE, I WANTED

TO BE A PART OF THAT.

ERIK HAS ALWAYS BEEN A

TITHER GIVING AWAY 10% OF HIS

INCOME.

I STARTED TO SEE SOME

REWARDS COMING BACK WITH

TITHING AND MORE ESPECIALLY

GIVEN TO THE 700 CLUB.

THEN HE WAS LAID OFF FROM

HIS SALES JOB AND STRUGGLED TO

GET BY.

I STARTED DONATING PLASMA, I

WAS AT A LOW POINT IN MY LIFE,

MORE PLASMA, YOU CAN ONLY GET

30 DOLLARS A SESSION.

STILL HE WANTED TO KEEP ON

TITHING.

ER

I WOULD TAKE FOR 3 DOLLARS

TO TITHE AND USE THE REST FOR

PUTTING GAS IN MY CAR,

SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

JUST A FEW DAYS HE DECIDED

TO KEEP TITHING, A FRIEND AT

THE DENVER PERFORMING ARTS

CENTER OFFERED HIS A FULL TIME

GIG PLAYING FOR A MUSICAL

PRODUCTION.

HE TOLD ME IT'S GOING TO BE

PAYING THREE GRAND A MONTH, I

STARTED TO THINK ABOUT IT AND I

REALIZED THAT GOD MULTIPLIED

THOSE 3 DOLLARS INTO BEING 3

THOUSAND DOLLARS, JUST BECAUSE

I OPENED MY HEART TO WHAT HE

HAD FOR ME.

WHEN THE MUSICAL PRODUCTION

ENDED, ERIK WAS OUT OF A JOB

AGAIN.

I REALLY HAD TO MAKE IT UP

IN MY MIND THAT I NEEDED TO

PRESS ON DESPITE MY

CIRCUMSTANCES, DESPITE MY

SURROUNDINGS.

A FEW WEEKS LATER, HE HEARD

OF A JOB OPENING AT XEROX.

I APPLIED FOR THE POSITION,

HE LIKED ME FROM THE GET-GO, HE

HIRED ME RIGHT THERE ON THE

SPOT AND IT ELEVATED MY FAITH

EVEN MORE, GOD IS MY SOURCE,

WHETHER IT'S THROUGH PRAYER OR

GIVING YOUR TITHES, EXPECT FOR

GOD TO MOVE.

EXPECT GOD TO MOVE, HE WANTS

TO HELP HIS CHILDREN.

JUST BE CONVINCED OF THAT, BUT

WHAT IS HE LOOKING FOR?

HE'S LOOKING FOR OUR

FAITHFULNESS TO SAY WE'LL DO IN

IN ACCORDANCE WITH HIS RULE AND

IS HIS WAYS, ERIK GOT INTO VERY

EXTREME SITUATIONS, IF YOU CAN

IMAGINE BEING REQUIRED TO

DONATE YOUR PLASMA SO YOU CAN

HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO PUT GAS IN

YOUR CAR, BUT EVEN IN THAT, HE

SAID I'M GOING TO TITHE, I'M

GOING TO LIVE GOD'S WAY AND OUT

OF THAT 30 DOLLARS, I'M GOING

TO TAKE 3 DOLLARS AND GIVE IT

AWAY AND TRUST GOD WITH MY

FINANCES.

WHEN YOU DO IT HIS WAY, THAT'S

WHEN THE PROMISES COME.

THIS IS NOT SOME ON AGAIN, OFF

AGAIN THING, THIS IS NOT SOME

KIND OF HEAVENLY SLOT MACHINE,

THIS IS A LIFESTYLE OF SAYING I

WANT TO BE GENEROUS, I WANT TO

GIVE AND WHEN YOU DO IT THAT

WAY, THEN THE BLESSINGS COME

AND THEY COME IN UNEXPECTED

WAYS.

I HAVE SOME WONDERFUL NEWS, IF

I CAN GET A DRUM ROLL, SOME CBN

GIVING AND WE WANT TO TAKE THIS

TERRY?

WHEN BABY TASHA WAS BORN

WITH BIRTH DEFECTS, HER PARENTS

KNEW THERE WAS NO WAY THEY

COULD HELP HER, THEY BARELY

MADE ENOUGH MONEY TO SURVIVE

AND TASHA NEEDED NOT JUST ONE

BUT TWO MAJOR OPERATIONS.

TWO YEAR-OLD TASHA IS NOT

YET AWARE OF HER CLEFT LIP OR

HER L*UFRP GROWING ON HER

FOREHEAD.

AS I WAS HOLDING HER, I

LOOKED ALT HER AND I COULDN'T

HOLD MY TEARS, I WONDERED IF

HER CONDITION COULD BE FIXED.

WHENEVER I GIVE HER MILK OR

FOOD, IT CAME OUT OF HER NOSE.

I HAD TO TAKE EXTRA CARE WHEN

FEEDING HER.

I WONDERED HOW SHE WOULD

SURVIVE.

TASHA'S PARENTS LOVE HER

VERY MUCH.

TASHA AND I ARE VERY CLOSE

BECAUSE I CARE FOR HER MOST OF

THE TIME.

WHENEVER I HOLD HER, SHE CRIES.

TASHA'S PARENTS ARE

CHRISTIANS, THEY LIVE IN A

SMALL TOWN WHERE THEY HAVE A

SMALL INCOME, PAYING FOR

SURGERY WAS OUT OF THE QUESTION.

CBN MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR TASHA

TO HAVE A CLEFT LIP SURGERY FOR

FREE.

THE NEWS WAS SO GREAT, I

SAID THIS IS GOD'S WAY OF

PROVIDING TO HEAL HER.

TASHA'S CLEFT LIP SURGERY

WAS SUCCESSFUL.

THEN SHE HAD A SURGERY TO

REMOVE THE GROWTH ON HER HEAD.

OUR FEARS ABOUT HER FUTURE

ARE GONE.

WE FEEL LIKE LEAPING FOR JOY.

I'M THANKFUL FOR EVERYONE

WHO HELPED US, I PRAY THAT GOD

BLESS CBN AND PEOPLE KEEP

GIVING.

TASHA'S MOM SAID THIS IS

GOD'S WAY OF HELPING US, IT'S

GORDON?

IN PARTS OF PERU, WATER IS

STORED IN DEEP WEMS, AND FOR A

FAMILY TO GET WATER, IT ALMOST

ENDED IN TRAGEDY.

THIS DOESN'T STOP HER FROM

WORKING HARD AROUND THE HOUSE,

BUT THE FIRST TIME SHE WENT TO

COLLECT WATER FOR HER MOM

BECAME A NEAR TRAGEDY, THE

LITTLE GIRL LEANED OVER TO GET

SOME WATER AND FELL IN.

I HEARD THE MAYBE START TO

SCREAM, SHE FELL INTO THE WEM.

THE GIRL STRUCK LED TO STAY

AFLOAT BUT BECAUSE SHE

SWALLOWED SO MUCH WATER, SHE

LOST CONSCIOUSNESS, HER MOTHER

WAS FINALLY ABLE TO GET HER OUT.

I SAID, NO, MY GOD, LORD,

PLEASE DON'T TAKE HER AWAY FROM

ME.

WHEN I SAW MY DAUGHTER

BREATHING, I FELT SHE HAD BEEN

BORN AGAIN, THEN I SAID, LORD,

THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

WHEN OPERATION BLESSING

FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS DANGEROUS

PIT WELL, WE DECIDED TO GIVE

THEM A NEW, SAFER ONE.

THIS WELL PROVIDES FRESH

DRINKING WATER FOR MORE THAN

400 PEOPLE IN THE AREA.
