[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

AN AMERICAN PASTOR ON TRIAL

IN IRAN IS NOW MISSING.

GUARDS HAVE TOLD HIS FAMILY

HE IS NO LONGER IN THE

PRISON, WHERE HE HAS BEEN

HELD FOR SEVERAL MONTHS.

Terry: PASTOR SAEETER

ABIDINE HAS NOT BEEN SEEN

SINCE MONDAY.

Reporter: A

DISAPPOINTMENT FOR THE

FAMILY OF THE PASTOR.

MONDAY THEY SAID THE PASTOR

WILL BE RELEASED AFTER

POSTING BAIL.

THEN CAME NEWS THAT BAIL HAD

BEEN REJECTED.

HE RECENTLY WAS ABLE TO

SNEAK OUT OF HIS JAIL.

HE SAID, "ONE DAY I'LL BE

TOLD I'LL BE FREE AND

ALLOWED TO SEE MY KIDS ON

CHRISTMAS, AND THE NEXT DAY

I'M TOLD I'LL BE HANGED."

HE IS CHARGED WITH

ATTEMPTING TO UNDERMINE THE

IRANIAN GOVERNMENT FOR HIS

WORK STARTING HOUSE CHURCHES

IN THE IRANIAN PUBLIC.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE IS FIGHTING FOR

HIS RELEASE.

THEY SAY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT

IS NOT DOING ENOUGH.

WE DID NOT SEE ANY REAL

ACTION FROM THE STATE

DEPARTMENT UNTIL LAST WEEK,

WHEN FINALLY THE MEDIA'S

ATTENTION ON THIS HAD SHAMED

THEM INTO SAYING WE'RE

ACTUALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE

MATTER.

ALL THEY HAD DONE BEFORE IS

SAID THEY WERE AWARE OF IT.

BUT THEY HAVE STILL FALLEN

SHORT OF CALLING FOR AN

AMERICAN CITIZEN'S RELEASE.

Reporter: 50 MEMBERS OF

THE HOUSE SIGNED AND

DELIVERED A LETTER TO

SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY

CLINTON, URGING HER TO BRING

ABEDINI HOME.

THE STATE ISSUED A

STATEMENT, QUOTE,"REMAIN

CONCERNED ABOUT THE U.S.

CITIZEN, AND WE CALL ON THE

IRANIAN AUTHORITIES TO

RELEASE MR. AB ABEDINE,EDINI."

HIS WIFE SAYS SHE AND HER

CHILDREN PRAY.

HE IS IN CONTROL.

HE WILL BRING EVERYTHING FOR

GOOD, AND FOR HIS GLORY,

WHICH IS WHAT WE WANT.

Gordon: IF YOU WANT TO

HELP THIS PASTOR, THE CENTER

CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE

HAS ISSUED A PETITION.

SO FAR 225,000 PEOPLE HAVE

SIGNED UP.

YOU CAN FIND THE LINK AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

AND I ENCOURAGE YOU TO CALL

YOUR CONGRESSMAN, CALL YOUR

SENATOR.

LET'S GET CONGRESSIONAL

ACTION.

LET'S GET SENATE PRESSURE ON

THE STATE DEPARTMENT.

WE NEED ACTION ON THIS.

202-224-3121.

WELL, IN FURTHER NEWS,

AMERICANS FROM AROUND THE

COUNTRY ARE IN WASHINGTON

TODAY TO SPEAK OUT IN

SUPPORT OF THE UNBORN.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

Lee: THAT'S

RIGHT,

GORDON.

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

PRO-LIFE ACTIVISTS HAVE COME

TOGETHER IN OUR NATION'S

CAPITAL FOR THE ANNUAL MARCH

FOR LIFE.

IT HAS BEEN HELD EVERY YEAR

TO MARK THE ANNIVERSARY OF

ROE VS. WADE.

THE LANDMARK DECISION THAT

LEGALIZED ABORTION

NATIONWIDE.

THIS IS THE 40th

ANNIVERSARY OF THAT RULING.

ABOUT 55 MILLION BABIES HAVE

BEEN ABORTED OVER THAT

SPAN.

RHODE ISLAND'S HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES OVERWHELMING

PASSED LEGISLATION

LEGALIZING SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE.

THE VOTE WAS 55-15.

BUT THE BILL IS UNCERTAIN IN

THE SENATE.

A SENATOR OPPOSES SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE, BUT SAYS SHE WILL

NOT STOP A COMMITTEE VOTE.

BUT SIDES ARE DIVIDED ON

WHETHER THERE BE A VOTE IN

THE FULL SENATE.

WE HAVE TO BE HONEST,

WE'RE CONFIDENT THIS BILL

WON'T BE THE LIGHT OF DAY.

Lee: CELL PHONE

PROVIDER AT&T IS ISSUING A

WARNING TO ITS COSTUMERS

ABOUT THE FLU.

CELL PHONES CAN SPREAD THE

FLU VIRUS EASILY, AND THAT'S

BECAUSE OF HOW OFTEN PEOPLE

SHAKE HANDS AND TURN

DOORKNOBS BEFORE USING THEIR

HOMES.

PEOPLE SHOULD CLEAN AND

DISINFECT THEIR PHONES

ANNUALLY, USE HANDS-FREE

HEADSETS, AND AVOID TAKING

THEIR PHONES INTO

RESTAURANTS.

Gordon: AND LET ME ADD

ANOTHER ONE TO THAT, YOUR

REMOTE CONTROL.

MAKE SURE YOU'RE

DISINFECTING THAT ON A

REGULAR BASIS.

AND PARTICULARLY IF YOU'RE

IN A HOSPITAL, BECAUSE

THAT'S THE PLACE WHERE, MORE

LIKELY THAN NOT, YOU'RE

GOING TO GET AN INFECTION.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: TODAY EILEEN

TUEY IS HAPPILY MARRIED AND

DEBT-FREE.

JUST A FEW YEARS AGO, SHE

WAS A SINGLE MOM, LIVING

PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK, AND

READY TO DECLARE

BANKRUPTCY.

I WAS SINGLE AND

STRUGGLING, AND TRYING TO

MAKE ENDS MEET.

AND I HAD A LITTLE GIRL I

HAD TO FEED.

Reporter: EILEEN TUEY

HAD RUN OUT OF OPTIONS.

AN ELECTRICIAN BY TRADE, SHE

HAD A TOUGH TIME FINDING

WORK BECAUSE CONSTRUCTION

JOBS HAD DRIED UP.

I WAS GETTING READY TO

LOSE MY HOME.

I COULD HARDLY PAY MY

MORTGAGE AND THE ELECTRICITY

AND THE PHONE, AND ALL OF

THE UTILITIES I NEEDED TO

PAY.

Reporter: EILEEN WAS ON

THE VIRGE OF DECLARING

BANKRUPTCY.

AND THE BANK WAS ABOUT TO

FORECLOSURE ON THEIR HOME.

IT CAME TO THE POINT

WHERE I HAD $200 TO MY NAME,

AND IT WASN'T ENOUGH TO PAY

THE MORTGAGE.

NOT ENOUGH TO COVER THE

BILLS.

AND I SAID, OKAY, GOD.

I FEEL LIKE THIS IS IT.

I'M GOING TO BE IN THE

STREETS.

SO I MIGHT AS WELL GIVE YOU

ALL I HAVE.

AND SO I GAVE GOD ALL I

HAD.

THE WHOLE $200.

Reporter: EILEEN SAYS

IT WAS THEN THINGS STARTED

TURNING AROUND.

I ENDED UP GETTING A CALL

FROM THE BANK THAT DAY, AND

THEY CALLED ME TO SAY, WE'RE

GOING TO REINSTATE YOUR

LOAN.

AND I SAID, HOW IS THAT

POSSIBLE?

AND THEY SAID, WELL, YOU HAD

A RELATIVE THAT CALLED IN

AND GAVE ALL OF THE MONEY

THAT YOU OWED.

Reporter: BUT THAT,

EILEEN SAYS, WAS JUST THE

BEGINNING.

SHE FOUND A PERMANENT

FULL-TIME JOB, CAUGHT UP ON

HER BILLS, AND IT WAS ABLE

TO PAY BACK HER RELATIVES.

I WAS BEING FAITHFUL WITH

WHAT GOD WAS GIVING ME.

AND BEING ABLE TO SAY, YOU

KNOW, LORD, I TITHE AND I

BELIEVE YOUR WORD.

I BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL

DELIVER ME.

AND HE WOULD TIME AND TIME

AND TIME AGAIN.

AND HE NEVER FAILED ME.

NOT ONES DID HE FAIL ME.

Reporter: YEARS LATER,

EILEEN MARRIED LEONARD.

SHE TOLD HIM HOW GOD HAD

ALWAYS PROVIDED FOR HER, AND

SHE WAS CONVINCED IT IS

BECAUSE SHE WAS FAITHFUL TO

GIVE.

THAT'S THE ONE THING THAT

GOD SAYS, PROVE ME IN THIS

AND SEE IF I WON'T POUR YOU

OUT A BLESSING THAT YOU

CANNOT CONTAIN.

SO I PROVED HIM OVER AND

OVER AGAIN, AND HE WOULD

POUR OUT BLESSING AFTER

BLESSING THAT I STILL CANNOT

CONTAIN.

Reporter: BEFORE LONG,

LEONARD SAW HOW IT WORKED IN

HIS LIFE AS WELL.

AS WE GIVE IN FAITH TO

GOD, GOD IS GOING TO TURN

AROUND AND BLESS US SO THAT

THEN WE CAN BLESS OTHERS

MORE.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

PLACES THE TUEYS GIVE TO IS

CBN.

ANY TIME I SEE THEM GOING

INTO A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY,

SEEING LITTLE KIDS HAVE

SURGERY, CLEAN DRINKING

WATER, THOSE ARE THE KINDS

OF THINGS THAT EXCITE ME.

BECAUSE I KNOW I CAN'T GO

THERE AND DO THOSE THINGS,

BUT I KNOW THAT I CAN ADD TO

THE CAUSE.

ONE OF THE BIG ONES IS

"OPERATION BLESSING."

WHENEVER THERE ARE

DISASTERS, THAT'S THE CHURCH

IN ACTION.

Reporter: THE COUPLE IS

NOW DEBT-FREE, AND THEIR

HOME IS PAID FOR.

YOU REALLY CAN'T AFFORD

NOT TO TITHE.

BECAUSE GOD IS A GOOD GOD,

AND HE WANTS TO SHOW OFF.

HE REALLY WANTS TO SHOW

OFF.

Gordon: GOD WANTS TO

SHOW OFF.

I LOVE THIS.

I LOVE EILEEN'S SIMPLE

FAITH.

AND SIMPLE FAITH IS THE BEST

FAITH.

YOU JUST SAY, I WANT TO

TRUST AND OBEY.

NOW, WHAT DOES GOD WANT US

TO DO?

YOU FIND IT IN ISAIAH 58: "I

WANT YOU TO SHARE YOUR FOOD

WITH THE HUNGRY, AND TO

WELCOME POOR WANDERS IN YOUR

HOME.

GIVE CLOTHES TO THOSE WHO

NEED THEM.

IF YOU DO THESE THINGS, YOUR

SALVATION WILL COME LIKE THE

DAWN.

THEN WHEN YOU CALL, THE LORD

WILL ANSWER, YES, I AM

HERE.

HE WILL QUICKLY REPLY."

EILEEN AND LEONARD LEARNED

THAT.

THEY LEARNED IF THEY TOOK

CARE OF THE POOR AND HELPED

PEOPLE IN NEED, THEN WHEN

THEY CRIED AND ASKED GOD,

GOD WOULD SUPPLY.

THEY LEARNED THAT WONDERFUL

SECRET.

LET 2013 BE THE YEAR WHEN

YOU LEARN THAT SECRET, WHERE

YOU SAY, I'M GOING TO TRUST

GOD.

I'M GOING TO TRUST HIM WITH

MY FINANCES.

I'M GOING TO DO IT THE WAY

HE ASKS ME TO DO IT, AND SEE

IF YOU DON'T GET THE SAME

BLESSINGS THAT EILEEN AND

LEONARD GOT.

LIKE MANY AMERICANS, JOSEPH

AND MELANIE WERE HIT HARD BY

THE RECESSION.

AT ONE POINT THEY HAD TO

CHOOSE BETWEEN BUYING FOOD

OR BUYING GAS TO GET TO

WORK.

Reporter: JOSEPH AND

MELANIE HARDING LOVED THE

FREEDOM OF RIDING THEIR

MOTORCYCLE ON THE OPEN

ROAD.

IT REMINDS THEM OF THEIR

NEWFOUND FINANCIAL FREEDOM.

THE HARDINGS LIVE IN THE

HEARTLAND OF MICHIGAN.

TODAY THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL

ENTREPRENEURS.

BUT THEY'VE KNOWN THEIR

SHARE OF HARD TIMES.

MELANIE WAS A COMPUTER

DRAFTER, AND JOSEPH WAS A

RESTAURANT COOK.

STILL, LIKE MANY AMERICANS,

THEY LIVED PAYCHECK TO

PAYCHECK.

IT IS A STRUGGLING.

IT IS DAY TO DAY.

I THINK IT IS FEAR.

YOU LAY AWAKE AT NIGHT

WONDERING WHERE THAT NEXT

$10 IS GOING TO COME FROM SO

YOU CAN HAVE GAS TO GET TO

WORK OR FOOD TO EAT.

IT IS JUST BASIC NEEDS.

IT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A

PRISONER.

IT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE

YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO GET

AHEAD.

Reporter: WITH A

STRUGGLING ECONOMY, MELANIE

SAYS THEY HAD

TO

MAKE SOME

TOUGH DECISIONS.

DO I HAVE GAS IN MY CAR

TO GO TO MY FRIEND'S

BIRTHDAY PARTY, OR DO I HAVE

TO STAY HOME SO I CAN GET TO

WORK TOMORROW.

TWO DAYS BEFORE THE

PAYCHECK, I MIGHT NOT BE

ABLE TO PAY MY UTILITY

BILLS, SO I'M GOING TO HAVE

TO CHOOSE TO PAY A LATE FEE

IN ADDITION TO THAT.

OR MAYBE HAVE MY UTILITIES

TURNED OFF.

Reporter: AFTER

SUFFERING A BACK INJURY,

JOSEPH HAD TO LEAVE HIS

JOB.

AS HE RECUPERATED, HE

STARTED WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" EVERY MORNING.

THAT'S WHERE HE LEARNED

ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF

GIVING.

JUST BE OBEDIENT, AND

JUST GIVE GOD WHAT IS

ALREADY HIS.

IT BELONGS TO HIM, ANYWAY.

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND HEARING THE STORIES IS

WHAT REALLY SPOKE TO HIM.

REAL PEOPLE SHARING HOW

THEIR LIVES WERE CHANGED,

AND THEIR FINANCES AND

BUSINESSES WERE CHANGED FROM

TITHING.

SO HE GOT THAT MESSAGE FROM

CBN.

Reporter: MELANIE HAD

GROWN UP IN CHURCH AND

ALREADY KNEW ABOUT TITHING,

BUT HAD BEEN INCONSISTENT.

WHEN SHE STARTED WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB" WITH JOSEPH,

SOON THEY BEGAN GIVING AS A

COUPLE.

THE COMPANY MELANIE WORKED

FOR SUFFERED IN THE ECONOMY,

TOO.

SHE LEFT HER JOB AND STARTED

A HOME-BASED BUSINESS.

WHEN JOSEPH GOT BACK ON HIS

FEET, HE STARTED SELLING

ITEMS SHE BOUGHT ON eBAY.

HE HAS BLESSED ME WITH SO

MUCH WISDOM.

A LOT OF TIMES I'LL BUY

THINGS, THINKING IT WILL BE

WORTH SOMETHING, AND I SPEND

$4 OR $5 ON IT, AND IT IS

WORTH $300.

IN A THREE-YEAR

TIMEFRAME, IT MULTIPLIED BY

10.

I GUESS THAT'S A 10th WE

GIVE, AND NOW IT HAS COME

BACK TO US AND IT KEEPS

GROWING.

Reporter: MELANIE AND

JOSEPH LOVE GIVING TO CBN

EVERY MONTH.

CBN FOLLOWS THE WORD.

WHEN I WATCH THE SHOW, I

JUST KNOW THAT GOD IS THE

CENTER OF EVERYTHING CBN

DOES.

AND SO I REALLY WANT TO

SUPPORT AN ORGANIZATION LIKE

THAT.

Reporter: JOSEPH SAYS

HE NO LONGER FEELS LIKE A

PRISONER TO HIS FINANCES.

I JUST FEEL PEACE.

EVER SINCE I'VE BEEN

TITHING, I'VE NEVER HAD TO

WORRY ABOUT BILLS.

THERE IS ALWAYS MONEY TO PAY

THE BILLS.

HE DOESN'T NEED OUR

MONEY, YOU KNOW?

IT'S FOR US.

TITHING IS FOR US.

AND IT IS AN INVESTMENT, AND

IT OPENS THE DOOR FOR US TO

BE BLESSED FINANCIALLY, SO

THAT WE CAN BLESS OTHERS.

Gordon: JOSEPH AND

MELANIE LEARNED THE SECRET,

AND THEY LEARNED THE SECRET

IN THE MIDDLE OF JOSEPH

BEING OUT OF WORK.

HE HURT HIS BACK.

HE COULDN'T CONTINUE

WORKING.

BUT HE WAS ABLE TO WATCH A

TELEVISION SHOW THAT TAUGHT

HIM ABOUT TITHING, AND HE

SAID, THAT'S A GOOD IDEA.

LET ME DO THAT AND SEE IF WE

CAN'T TURN THIS AROUND.

GOD RESPONDEDMENT HERE IS

HIS PROMISE, FROM MATTHEW 6:

"SO DON'T WORRY ABOUT HAVING

ENOUGH FOOD OR DRINK OR

CLOTHING.

YOU'RE HEAVENLY FATHER

ALREADY KNOWS ALL OF YOUR

NEEDS, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU

ALL YOU NEED FROM DAY TO DAY

IF YOU LIVE FOR HIM AND MAKE

THE KINGDOM OF GOD YOUR

PRIMARY CONCERN."

JOSEPH AND MELANIE SAID,

YES, I WANT TO DO THAT.

I WANT TO LIVE FOR HIM.

I WANT TO MAKE THE KINGDOM

OF GOD OUR PRIMARY CONCERN,

AND THAT TURNED THEIR LIVES

AROUND.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF

YOU JUST SAY, OKAY, I WANT

TO TRUST GOD.

NOT JUST WITH THE LITTLE

THINGS OF LIFE, OR TRUST HIM

WITH MY SALVATION, WHICH IS

A BIG THING, BUT I WANT TO

TRUST HIM WITH EVERYTHING.

AND WHEN YOU DO THAT AND YOU

PUT THE KINGDOM OF GOD AS

YOUR PRIMARY CONCERN, THEN

EVERYTHING ELSE GETS ADDED

UNTO YOU.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS.

SOME CBN PARTNERS JUST LIKE

JOSEPH AND MELANIE SAY WE

LOVE LIVING.

AND SO WE WANT TO MATCH

PEOPLE THAT GIVE FOR THE

NEXT 30 MINUTES.

WE WANT TO MATCH THEM

$100,000.

Terry: YES!

Gordon: LORD, WE ASK

FOR BLESSING OVER THIS, AND

WE ASK FOR YOUR ANOINTING,

THAT YOU WOULD BE WITH US.

AND, LORD, FOR THOSE

WATCHING AND MAKING

DECISIONS, ENCOURAGE THEM.

AND FOR THOSE WHO MADE THIS

CHALLENGE POSSIBLE, WE JUST

SPEAK OVER THEM A BLESSING.

AND WE ASK THAT WINDOWS IN

HEAVEN WOULD BE OPEN IN

THEIR LIVES AND YOU WOULD

POUR OUT A BLESSING THEY

CANNOT CONTAIN.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

ALL IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, $100,000 ON A

CHALLENGE.

JUST 29 MINUTES AND 56

SECONDS TO GO ON THE CLOCK.

THE CHALLENGE IS EXISTING

TWO."

IN THIS, YOU'LL MEET NINE

PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY DIED,

HERE IS A SNEAK PREVIEW.

Gordon: IT IS A

QUESTION EACH ONE OF US MUST

FACE.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

IMPORTANT DECISIONS YOU'LL

EVER MAKE: WHERE WILL YOU

SPEND ETERNITY?

Terry: WE WANT YOU TO

HAVE THIS.

WE THINK YOU'LL BE REALLY

TOUCHED BY THE TESTIMONIES

TOLL-FREE NUMBER YOU SEE ON

YOUR SCREEN,

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com, AND BECOME A "700

CLUB" MEMBER THAT WAY.

Gordon: IN A STRONG

ECONOMY, FLIPPING HOUSES CAN

BE A PROFITABLE BUSINESS,

AND THAT WAS TRUE FOR THE

MAN IN OUR NEXT STORY.

UNTIL AMERICA'S REAL ESTATE

BUBBLE BURST AND HE FOUND

HIMSELF $100,000 IN DEBT.

Reporter: IN THE

BEAUTIFUL HAWAIIAN ISLANDS,

JEFF OWNS A ROOFING COMPANY,

JUST NORTH OF HONOLULU.

HE TOOK OVER 18 YEARS AGO,

WHEN HIS FATHER RETIRED.

HE ALSO BEGAN TO RESTORE AND

FLIP HOUSES.

THE FIRST HOUSE I EVER

DID, IT WAS REALLY

STRESSFUL, BUT WE ACTUALLY

DID REALLY WELL ON THAT

HOUSE.

WE WALKED AWAY WITH PROBABLY

$75,000, TO $80,000.

Reporter: SO JEFF

EXPANDED HIS SIDE BUSINESS,

FLIPPING HOUSES.

AT THAT TIME, I FELT LIKE

ME, ME, ME, AND NOT RELYING

ON GOD.

I DIDN'T REALLY BELIEVE IN

TITHING.

AND I KNOW IT WAS THE RIGHT

THING TO DO, BUT I NEVER

DID.

Reporter: JEFF WAS AN

INEXPERIENCED INVESTOR, AND

WHEN THE REAL ESTATE MARKET

TOOK A DOWNWARD TURN, JEFF

WAS STUCK WITH A HOUSE THAT

WOULDN'T SELL.

WEEKS TURNED INTO MONTHS,

AND MONTHS ALMOST TURNED

INTO A YEAR.

SO I WAS IN A POSITION THAT

NO MATTER WHAT THE PRICE

WAS, I HAD TO SELL.

AND ON THIS, I LOST MAYBE

$100,000, OVER A $100,000.

Reporter: HE STARTED

COMING HOME FOR LUNCH TO

SAVE MONEY.

WHILE HE ATE, HE WATCHED

"THE 700 CLUB."

I STARTED WATCHING, AND

THEY HAD THESE INTERVIEWS

WHERE PEOPLE WERE STARTING

TO TITHE ON THEIR LOSSES AND

THEIR BUSINESSES, AND HOW

THEY CAME OUT OF THIS.

IT TOOK ME A WHOLE WEEK TO

REALIZE I REALLY HAVEN'T

BEEN FAITHFUL TITHING.

I WAS THINKING ABOUT

MYSELF.

I REALIZED THAT I NEEDED TO

START PUTTING GOD FIRST.

Reporter: JEFF STARTED

TITHING TO HIS CHURCH.

THEN WENT ON LINE AND SIGNED

UP WITH PLEDGE EXPRESS TO

GIVE MONTHLY TO CBN.

IN THE BEGINNING, IT WAS

KIND OF TOUGH, YOU KNOW.

BUT JUST WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," I JUST FELT THAT I

NEED TO TRUST GOD.

Reporter: JEFF SAID GOD

STARTED SHOWING HIM HOW TO

RESTRUCTURE HIS BUSINESS AND

BEGIN TO MAKE A PROFIT.

HE INCREASED HIS GIVING, AND

IN TIME HE WAS ABLE TO PAY

DOWN HIS DEBT.

MY ACCOUNTANT TOLD ME

THIS YEAR, YOU HAVE THE

SECRET.

AND I SAID, WHAT DO YOU

MEAN?

AND HE SAID, IN YOUR TITHING

AND OFFERINGS, EVERY YEAR I

SEE YOU TITHE MORE AND MORE,

AND YOUR INCREASE IN INCOME

GROWS MORE AND MORE.

Reporter: JEFF SAYS FOR

THE PAST TWO YEARS, HIS

BUSINESS HAS EXCEEDED HIS

WILDEST DREAMS IN PROFITS.

"THE 700 CLUB" SEEMS LIKE

IT WAS RIGHT AT THAT MOMENT

WHERE THEY WERE THERE WHEN I

NEEDED SOMEBODY.

EVEN IN THE ROUGHEST TIMES,

I LEARNED TO TRUST GOD.

GOD WILL ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF

ME AND CARRY ME, NO MATTER

WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES ARE.

GOD WILL BE FIRST.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

WARNING, AND IT IS A WARNING

FROM GOD TO THE CHILDREN OF

ISRAEL, AS THEY GETTING

READY TO GO INTO THE

PROMISEDLAND.

DEUTERONOMY 8: "NEVER THINK

IT WAS YOUR OWN STRENGTH AND

ENERGY THAT MADE YOU

WEALTHY.

ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT IT IS

THE LORD, YOUR GOD, WHO

GIVES YOU THE POWER TO

BECOME RICH."

JEFF LEARNED THAT.

HE THOUGHT, OKAY, I'M

FLIPPING HOUSES IN A STRONG

ECONOMY, EVERYTHING IS GOING

GREAT FOR ME, AND HE DIDN'T

TITHE BECAUSE HE DIDN'T

BELIEVE IN IT.

AND THEN THINGS TURNED, AND

HE FOUND THE SECRET.

AND THAT IS, IF YOU PUT GOD

FIRST, IF YOU HONOR HIM WITH

THE FIRST FRUITS, AND THEN

ALL OF THESE OTHER THINGS

ARE GOING TO BE ADDED UNTO

YOU.

IT IS GOD WHO GIVES YOU THE

POWER TO GET WEALTHY.

AND TO HEAR THE TESTIMONY OF

HIS OWN ACCOUNTANT SAY, YOU

FOUND THE SECRET.

I SEE WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

I SEE THAT YOU'RE INCREASING

YOUR GIVING EVERY YEAR, AND

GOD'S INCREASING YOUR

INCOME.

BECAUSE IT IS GOD THAT GIVES

US THE POWER TO BECOME

WEALTHY.

THAT IS ONE OF THE GREAT

SECRETS OF THE KINGDOM OF

GOD.

HERE WE CALL IT THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

IT SOUNDS COUNTERINTUITIVE,

THAT GIVE, AND IT WILL BE

GIVEN UNTO YOU, BUT THESE

ARE THE WORDS OF JESUS.

AND YOU FIND THEM IN LUKE.

GIVE, YOU START IT, GIVE,

AND THEN GOD KICKS INTO GEAR

AND HE GIVES UNTO YOU, AND

IT IS ONE OF THE GREAT

SUCCESS STORIES, TO SEE HOW

GOD CAN TURN A LIFE AROUND.

IF YOU, IN 2013, SAY, YES,

THIS IS THE YEAR WHERE I'M

GOING TO TRY IT.

I'M GOING TO SEE WHAT GOD

CAN DO WITH MY FINANCES.

DO IT.

CALL US.

SCOTT AROUND IS A SUCCESSFUL

BUSINESSMAN WITH A GREAT

FAMILY AND A BEAUTIFUL

HOME.

BUT JUST SEVEN YEARS AGO,

SCOTT WAS LIVING IN A

CARDBOARD BOX AND EATING OUT

OF A DUMPSTER.

MY FIRST WIFE DIED OF

BREAST CANCER.

WHEN SHE PASSED AWAY, I

REALLY FLOUNDERED.

AND I ENDED UP BEING

HOMELESS IN THE STREETS OF

TUCSON, ARIZONA.

Reporter: IN 2005,

SCOTT GOT OFF THE STREET AND

THE DRUGS.

HE BECAME A CHRISTIAN AND

LEARNED ABOUT TITHING.

WHEN SCOTT GOT A JOB WORKING

CONSTRUCTION, HE DECIDED IT

WAS TIME TO PUT WHAT HE

LEARNED INTO PRACTICE.

IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT AT

FIRST, BECAUSE FOR ME TO

GIVE MONEY WHEN I WAS JUST

COMING OUT OF THE STREETS,

WAS A BIG DECISION.

RIGHT AWAY, I STARTED SEEING

THE SUPER NATURAL FAVOR OF

GOD.

I WENT FROM LIVING IN A

HALF-WAY HOUSE TO GETTING MY

OWN APARTMENT.

Reporter: SCOTT WANTED

TO HELP OTHERS IN RECOVERY,

AND BEGAN PRAYING FOR A

JOB.

HE WAS HIRED A FEW MONTHS

LATER.

I PRAYED FOR A MONTH

STRAIGHT BEFORE THEY HIRED

ME.

OTHERS HAD COLLEGE DEGREES,

WERE ALREADY WORKING FOR THE

COMPANY, WANTED THAT

POSITION, AND THEY HIRED ME

BECAUSE THEY JUST SAW THE

LOVE THAT I HAVE FOR OTHER

PEOPLE AND HOW MUCH I WANTED

TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE GET

BETTER.

Reporter: SCOTT WAS

OFFERED THE POSITION OF

RESIDENT MANAGER IN 2006.

JUST THREE YEARS LATER, HE

RECEIVED ANOTHER PROMOTION.

GOD GAVE ME PROMOTIONS

THAT NO MAN COULD GIVE ME.

Reporter: IN 2010,

SCOTT BECAME A "700 CLUB"

PARTNER.

PAT ROBERTSON AND "THE

700 CLUB" ARE GOING OUT AND

IMPACTING THE WORLD IN AN

AMAZING WAY, ESPECIALLY HERE

IN THE UNITED STATES.

HELPING POOR PEOPLE, HELPING

DISADVANTAGED PEOPLE,

BUILDING WELLS IN COUNTRIES

LIKE AFRICA, WHERE PEOPLE

ARE STARVING TO DEATH ON A

DAILY BASIS.

I'M NOT ABLE TO TAKE

MISSIONARY TRIPS YET, BUT I

CAN CERTAINLY GIVE MONEY TO

"THE 700 CLUB" AND BE A PART

OF WHAT THEY'RE DOING ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

Reporter: TODAY SCOTT

IS HAPPILY MARRIED AND HAS A

FAMILY.

HE OWNS HIS OWN HOME AND

CONSIDERS GIVING ONE OF THE

KEYS TO HIS SUCCESS.

AS I FAITHFUL TITHED OVER

THE YEARS, GOD SHOWED ME THE

INCREASE.

IT IS AN ABSOLUTE MIRACLE,ñç

WHAT JESUS CHRIST HAS DONE

IN MY LIFE.

I LIVED IN A CARDBOARD BOX

SEVEN AND A HALF YEARS AGO.

I LIVED IN DUMPSTERS, EATING

OUT OF DUMPSTERS, AND NOW

GOD HAS PROVIDED AN

INCREDIBLE HOME, WHERE I CAN

HAVE BIBLE STUDIES IN MY

HOUSE.

IT'S JUST -- IT'S NOT A

CASTLE, BUT IT'S MY CASTLE.

I COULDN'T DO WHAT HE IS

DOING FOR ME.

SO IF YOU'RE OUT THERE

THINKING, I DON'T HAVE THE

RESOURCES TO TITHE, IF

YOU'RE OUT THERE THINKING,

IT IS TOO MUCH TO ASK, TRUST

GOD.

YOU TRUST HIM TO BE YOUR

ETERNAL SAVIOR, AND NOW

TRUST HIM WITH YOUR MONEY.

IT IS THE NEXT STEP, THE

ONLY STEP TO TAKE, AND HE

WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN.

Gordon: TRUST GOD, HERE

IS THE PROMISE, FROM PSALM

37: "TRUST IN THE LORD AND

DO GOOD, AND THEN YOU WILL

LIVE FAITHFULLY IN THE LAND

AND PROSPER.

TAKE DELIGHT IN THE LORD AND

HE WILL GIVE YOU YOUR

HEART'S DESIRES."

SCOTT GOT HIS HEART'S

DESIRE.

HE GOT A HOME HE COULD LIVE

IN.

HE GOT A FAMILY.

HE GOT THE THINGS HE

EARNESTLY DESIRED, ALL

BECAUSE HE TRUSTED THE LORD,

HAVE THE SATISFACTION IN

KNOWING YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE

A HUGE DIFFERENCES IN

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

LIVES.

IN THE PAST TWO MONTHS, MORE

THAN 4,000 VOLUNTEERS HAVE

JOINED "OPERATION BLESSING,"

TO HELP SURVIVORS OF

HURRICANE SANDY.

SURVIVORS LIKE BURT AND JEAN

MESH.

Reporter: BURT AND JEAN

MESH TRIED TO SALVAGE

WHATEVER THEY COULD AFTER

HURRICANE SANDY RIPPED

THROUGH THEIR HOME IN BREEZY

POINT, NEW YORK.

AND THEY WERE ALSO IN THE

MIDDLE OF ADDING A ROOM TO

THEIR HOUSE WHEN THE STORM

HIT.

THE PLASTER WARPED, AN

AREA ROTTED OUT.

THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT IN

THERE.

EVERYTHING WAS THROWN OUT.

Reporter: THE MESHES,

BOTH IN THEIR 80s, SPENT

THEIR SAVINGS ON THE

ADDITION, AND COULDN'T

AFFORD THE COSTLY REPAIRS TO

THEIR HOME.

JODY GETTIES REMEMBERS

MEETING THIS COUPLE.

WHEN WE SAW EVERYTHING

THEY WENT THROUGH, AND THE

INSPIRATION THEY ARE TO

THEIR ENTIRE COMMUNITY, IT

WAS AN INSPIRATION TO US.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING"

VOLUNTEERS WORKED

TIRELESSLY.

THE MESHES THOUGHT THEY WERE

JUST GUTTING THEIR HOUSE,

BUT WHEN THE COUPLE CAME

HOME THREE WEEKS LATER, THEY

WERE IN FOR A BIG SURPRISE.

OH, JODY, IT IS JUST

GORGEOUS!

WHEN SHE OPENED THE

DOORS, AND WE SAW THE REST

OF THE HOUSE, IT WAS ALMOST

MORE THAN YOUR HEART COULD

TAKE.

I MEAN, YOU JUST DIDN'T KNOW

HOW TO DEAL WITH IT

EMOTIONALLY, IN GRATEFULNESS

AND APPRECIATION TO ALL OF

THE PEOPLE THAT DID THE

WORK.

WHEN I WALKED IN THIS

AFTERNOON, I REALLY DIDN'T

BELIEVE THAT WAS MY HOUSE.

WHOA, IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

YOU WONDER WHERE IT ALL CAME

FROM AND WHO WOULD DO SUCH A

THING.

UNBELIEVABLE.

REALLY UNBELIEVABLE.

Reporter: WITH YOUR

SUPPORT, "OPERATION

BLESSING" WILL CONTINUE

HELPING PEOPLE LIKE THE

MESHES AROUND THE WORLD IN

TIMES OF DISASTER.

ANYBODY THAT HAS DONATED

TO "OPERATION BLESSING" OR

CONTINUES TO DONATE TO MAKE

PEOPLE'S LIVES FEEL MORE

BLESSED, HOW WONDERFUL.

AND HOW WONDERFUL THAT ALL

THESE VOLUNTEERS DO THE WORK

GRATIS, AND HAVE A SMILE ON

THEIR FACE AND LOVE IN THEIR

HEART.

Terry: BURT SAYS, YOU

WONDER WHO WOULD DO THIS AND

WHERE DID IT ALL COME FROM.

IT HAPPENED BECAUSE PEOPLE

LIKE YOU CARE ENOUGH TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

THAT'S HOW THAT KIND OF WORK

GETS DONE.

IT IS NOT JUST FOR BURT AND

JEAN.

IT IS HAPPENING FOR HUNDREDS

OF FAMILIES UP THERE.

GORDON?

Gordon: EVERY MORNING

THE FATHER IN THIS NEXT

STORY GOES OFF TO WORK, DEEP

IN THE COAL MINES OF CHINA.

IT IS A DANGEROUS JOB, BUT

THIS HARD-WORKING DAD IS

RISKING HIS LIFE TO TRY TO

SAVE HIS DAUGHTER.

Terry: SHOON WORKS UP

TO 2,000 FEET UNDERGROUND AS

A COAL MINER.

HIS SHIFTS ARE NEVER LESS

THAN 12 HOURS LONG, AND HE

RARELY GETS A NIGHT OFF.

HE DOES IT ALL FOR HIS

5-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER, CON

YONG.

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A

SERIOUS HEART DEFECT AS A

BABY, AND ALL OF THE DOCTORS

SAID UNLESS SHE GOT HEART

SURGERY, SHE WOULD DIE.

SHE WAS SO WEAK AND

FRAGILE AND ALWAYS SICK.

IT BROKE MY HEART TO SEE MY

DAUGHTER SUFFERING LIKE

THAT.

BUT WE COULDN'T GET ANY HELP

BECAUSE WE COULDN'T PAY FOR

SURGERY.

Terry: DESPITE THE

DANGER OF HIS JOB, CON

YONG'S FATHER ONLY BRINGS IN

$158 A MONTH.

SOMETIMES THE MINES

COLLAPSE AND GET FLOODED,

BUT I WOULD RATHER RISK

DYING MYSELF THAN LOSING MY

DAUGHTER.

SHE IS WORTH EVERYTHING TO

MY WIFE AND ME.

Terry: AS HARD AS HE

WORKED, SHOON STILL COULD

NOT RAISE ENOUGH MONEY FOR

SURGERY, AND CON YONG'S

HEART CONDITION TOOK A TURN

FOR THE WORSE.

SOME PEOPLE TOLD ME THAT

IT WASN'T WORTH IT TO TRY TO

SAVE CON YONG'S LIFE

ANYMORE, AND JUST TO FORGET

ABOUT IT.

BUT WE DIDN'T GIVE THAT A

SECOND THOUGHT.

Terry: THEN CON YONG'S

MOTHER HEARD THAT CBN WAS

COMING TO TOWN TO HELP FUND

HEART SURGERY FOR CHILDREN

LIKE HER DAUGHTER.

SOON A DAUGHTER REPAIRED THE

HOLE IN HER HEART AND

REPOSITIONED HER ARTERY.

I FEEL SO RELEASED

RELIEVED NOW.

I WAS ALWAYS SO CONCERNED

ABOUT MY DAUGHTER, BUT NOT

ANYMORE.

ALL OF MY WORRIES ARE GONE,

AND I BELIEVE CON YONG HAS A

VERY BRIGHT FUTURE.

THANK YOU, CBN.

Gordon: GIVING PEOPLE A

HOPE AND A FUTURE.

THAT'S WHAT GOD WANTS TO

DO.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE WANT TO

DO.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

IF YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT

HELL IS LIKE, WE HAVE A

FIRSTHAND ACCOUNT FROM

SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN THERE.

TAKE A LOOK.

I BEGAN TO FEEL A TUGGING

AND A PULLING.

LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS, THE

DEMONS WILL TUG AT YOU.

THEY WERE CALLING MY NAME,

AND THEY WERE SAYING, WE

GOTCHA, WE GOTCHA, YOU

BELONG TO US NOW.

I SAW SOULS, LOST SOULS,

THAT WAS IN TORMENT, IN THE

LAKE OF FIRE.

THEY WAS CRYING AND CALLING

ON GOD.

THEY WAS HOPELESS.

Wendy: WOW!

THAT IS SCARY STUFF.

YOU KNOW, HELL IS REAL,

DEMONS ARE REAL.

AND GOD DOES NOT WANT YOU TO

GO THERE.

IN FACT, HE MADE A PERFECT

WAY SO THAT NONE OF US HAS

TO GO THERE FOR EVEN ONE

SECOND.

HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST.

YOU KNOW IT IS TIME TO

JESUS, HE IS WAITING FOR

TODAY, SHAQUITA OLIVER OWNS

A THRIVING BUSINESS.

BUT NOT LONG AGO, THIS

SINGLE MOTHER WAS BARELY

GETTING BY ON MINIMUM WAGE.

SHE WAS BEHIND ON HER BILLS,

ABOUT TO BE EVICTED.

Reporter: SHAQUITA

OLIVER OWNS A HAIR STYLING

SALON JUST SOUTH OF

ATLANTA.

I LOVE WHAT I DO.

I LOVE THE PEOPLE.

I LOVE TO MAKE THEM PRETTY.

I LIKE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

ISSUES THAT COME IN THE DOOR

AND THEY SAY, CAN YOU FIX

ME?

AND I SAY, YEAH, I CAN FIX

YOU.

Reporter: HER SALON IS

SUCCESSFUL, WHICH IS A GOOD

THING, SINCE SHE IS A SINGLE

MOM RAISING FIVE KIDS.

BUT BEFORE SHE OPENED HER

BUSINESS, SHE WAS IN A

FINANCIAL MESS.

HER MINIMUM-WAGE JOB JUST

DIDN'T CUT IT.

IT WAS A LOT.

I WAS TRYING TO JUGGLE

PAYING THE RENT, PAYING THE

ELECTRICITY, PROVIDING

THINGS I NEEDED FOR THE

KIDS.

I JUST DIDN'T MAKE ENOUGH

MONEY.

Reporter: THREE MONTHS

BEHIND ON RENT AND FACING

EVICTION, SHAQUITA HAD NO

CLUE WHAT TO DO.

HER PASTOR ENCOURAGED HER TO

APPLY WHAT THE BOOK OF

MALACHI SAYS ABOUT MONEY.

THE PASTOR, HE SAYS,

THAT'S THE ONLY SCRIPTURE

WHERE GOD SAYS, PUT ME TO

THE TEST.

I'LL OPEN THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR YOU OUT A

BLESSING YOU WON'T HAVE

ENOUGH ROOM TO RECEIVE.

I SAID, I NEED WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN TO OPEN UP FOR ME.

I SAID, I'M GOING TO TRY

IT.

Reporter: A FEW WEEKS

LATER, SHE GOT A CALL FROM

WORK SAYING SHE RECEIVED A

BONUS.

MY CHECK CAME THE DAY OF

THE EVICTION.

AND I STUCK MY RECEIPT UP TO

THEM, AND I SAID, YOU WON'T

BE NEEDING TO DO AN EVICTION

HERE.

Reporter: SHAQUITA THEN

RECEIVED A PROMOTION.

AND THE MORE SHE GAVE, THE

MORE GOD BLESSED HER.

AND WHEN SHE FOUND "THE 700

CLUB," SHE WANTED TO GIVE

OVER AND ABOVE HER TITHES.

I WANTED TO SOW INTO THE

"THE 700 CLUB."

BECAUSE I BELIEVE THEY ARE

GOOD GROUND.

Reporter: HER KIDS

WANTED TO SOW, TOO, AND SO

HE ASKED IF THEY WANTED TO

SEND IN $20, TOO, AND THEY

ALL SAID YES.

TITHING WORKS.

IT NOT ONLY WORKS, IT

WORKS.

IT WORKS BEYOND WORKING.

Gordon: YOU CAN ENJOY

TITHING AND GIVING.

IN FACT, JESUS SAID IT IS

MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THAN IT

IS TO RECEIVE BECAUSE YOU

KNOW YOU'RE PART OF GOD'S

LARGER PLAN.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE PART OF

GIVING THE GOSPEL OUT.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE PART OF

HELPING PEOPLE.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE PUTTING THE

KINGDOM OF GOD FIRST IN YOUR

LIFE.

IF THAT'S YOU, GIVE US A

CALL.

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 "THE

700 CLUB."

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

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, CAMPING

OUT CAN 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 CAMP.

THIS IS RUSLAN, HE IS ONE OF

THEM, AND HE IS 7 YEARS

OLD.

THERE IS A 2-MONTH-OLD BABY

IN HERE.

RUSLAN IS WET TO THE CORE,

BECAUSE IT IS A COLD, RAINY

DAY HERE.

AND THIS LITTLE FAMILY IS

DOING THEIR BEST TO MAKE A

LIVING.

YOU CAN CAN SEE THE DAD IS

MAKING BASKETS OUT OF PIECES

OF TWIG 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 THEM A

HOME FOR THEM THAT WILL TAKE

THEM OUT OF THE COLD, OUT OF

THE RAIN, AND MAKE IT

THROUGH THE WINTER AND MAYBE

EVEN HAVE A GOOD LIFE HERE.

WORKING WITH OUR CBN STAFF

IN UKRAINE, "ORPHANS'

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 CONDITION OF

THE 2-MONTH-OLD BABY BOY WHO

HAD A TERRIBLE COUGH AND

FEVER.

HIS MOTHER WAS SO MAL

MALNOURISHED, THAT NURSING

HIM JUST WASN'T ENOUGH.

THAT DAY WE GAVE HIM FORMULA

AND MEDICINE FOR LIMIT

PETRO.

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 LIVE HOOD

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 WOULD GIVE US SUCH A

HOUSE.

THANK YOU.

Terry: POVERTY BEYOND

IMAGINING, AND THEN YOU CAME

IN, "700 CLUB" MEMBERS, AND

YOU'VE MADE AN INCREDIBLE

DIFFERENCE.

NOT JUST IN THIS LITTLE

FAMILY, BUT IN THAT ENTIRE

COMMUNITY.

IT IS ONE OF MANY ROMA

COMMUNITIES THAT YOU ARE

HELPING TO CREATE

TRANSFORMATION IN, AND WE

SAY THANK YOU FOR THAT.

IT IS WHAT JESUS WOULD HAVE

US DO.

WE'RE INVITING YOU TO BE A

PART OF THAT.

GO TO YOUR PHONE AND CALL

RIGHT NOW.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WHEN YOU DO, WILL YOU SAY

YOU WANT TO DO IT USING

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES ALL

OF THE WORK.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO REMEMBER

TO MAIL ANYTHING, AND YOU

DON'T HAVE TO HAVE STAMPS OR

ENVELOPES ON HAND.

YOU CAN STOP ANY TIME YOU

WANT.

BUT IT SAVES US SO MUCH IN

THE PROCESSING EXPENSES,

THEY WE CAN SPEND MORE OF

THAT ON PEOPLE IN NEED.

AND OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK

YOU IS TO SEND YOU "POWER

FOR LIFE."

THESE ARE TEACHINGS WE GET

HERE AT CBN, AND WE WANT TO

SHARE THEM WITH YOU.

WE SAY THANK YOU FOR BEING A

BLESSINGS TO OTHERS.

Gordon: IN AMERICA, A

DRINK OF WATER IS AS CLOSE

AS THE NEAREST FAUCET.

BUT IN ONE HONDURAS VILLAGE,

GETTING A DRING OF CLEAN

WATER MEANS A FOUR-HOUR

WALK.

Reporter: EVERY DAY

MICHEL AND HIS FAMILY HAS TO

WALK FOUR HOURS TO COLLECT A

FEW CONTAINERS FULL OF

WATER.

I REMEMBER A FEW TIMES WE

ASKED THE FARMER IF WE CAN

GET WATER FROM HIM, SINCE HE

WAS CLOSER, AND HE SAID NO.

IT WAS RESERVED FOR HIS

ANIMALS.

Reporter: DURING THE

RAINY SEASON, THE CREEKS AND

RIVERS SWELL AND CAN BE

DANGEROUS FOR COLLECTING

WATER.

MICHEL AND HIS WIFE AND

CHILDREN HAVE TO TAKE RISKS

TO GET WATER.

ONE DAY I FELL DOWN INTO

THE CURRENT AND HAD TO GRAB

SOME BRANCHES JUST TO SAVE

MYSELF.

Reporter: ANOTHER DAY,

MICHEL REMEMBERS RESCUING A

YOUNG BOY WHO NEARLY DROWN

IN THE RIVER.

A COUPLE OF HOURS LATER

AND HE WOULD HAVE DIED.

Reporter: THE

GOVERNMENT PROMISED

TO

DIG A

A WELL, BUT IT NEVER

HAPPENED.

THEN "OPERATION BLESSING"

DISCOVERED THE REMOTE

COMMUNITY HIDDEN AWAY IN THE

MOUNTAINS, AND IMMEDIATELY

DUG A WELL FOR THEM.

WE THEN INSTALLED PIPES TO

BRING THE CLEAN, CLEAR WELL

WATER INTO EVERY HOME.

SINCE "OPERATION

BLESSING" CAME TO HELP US,

EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED FOR

US IN OUR VILLAGE.

THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN FEEL

SAFE, AND EVERYONE IS SO

GRATEFUL FOR THE WATER.

AND I SAID, THE WATER YOU

BROUGHT TO US IS A GREAT

BLESSING.

THANKS FOR ALL YOU'VE DONE.

Gordon: AND THANKS FOR

ALL YOU'VE DONE.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

THAT.

YOU'RE PART OF BRINGING

CLEAN WATER TO PEOPLE.

AND YOU'RE PART OF REPAIRING

CLEFT PALLETS.

YOUR PART OF PROVIDING FREE

SURGERY.

YOU'RE PART OF MEDICAL

MISSIONS.

YOU'RE PART OF DISASTER

RELIEF.

YOU'RE PART OF PREACHING THE

GOSPEL AROUND THE WORLD.

YOU'RE PART OF ALL OF IT

BECAUSE YOU SAID, YES, I

WANT TO GIVE.

IF THAT'S YOU, CALL US RIGHT

NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

WE'VE GOT NINE MINUTES AND

37 SECONDS TO MAKE THE

CHALLENGE.

WE'VE GOT $37,000 TO GO.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

WE WANT TO GO OVER THE TOP

ON THIS.

SO PLEASE CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO KRISTI AT THE

PHONES.

KRISTI?

Kristi: THANK YOU,

GORDON.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY

HEAVEN IS LIKE?

IN OUR LATEST D.V.D. CALLED

"LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO," YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR

STORIES FROM PEOPLE WHO

ACTUALLY WENT THERE AND CAME

BACK TO SHARE THEIR STORY.

IN FACT, HERE IS A SNEAK

PREVIEW.

THE FIRST THING THAT

COMES TO ME IS HE IS

BRIGHT -- JUST LIKE JOHN

SAYS, HE IS BRIGHTER THAN

THE NEW DAY SUN.

IN THE NEXT PHRASE, I SAY I

WISH PEOPLE COULD GRAB IT.

AND IT IS THIS ONE, "AND WE

COULD LOOK AT HIM."

EVERYTHING IS RIGHT, THERE

IS NOTHING WRONG HERE.

AND I SAID, IT'S PAST PEACE,

PEACE PASSE PAST

UNDERSTANDING.

YOU'RE REALLY EXPERIENCING

THE LOVE HE HAS FOR YOU.

Kristi: "LIFE

BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART TWO,"

I TELL YOU, IT IS ONE OF THE

BEST WITNESSING TOOLS OUT

THERE, OF COURSE, OTHER THAN

THE BIBLE AND OUR OWN

PERSONAL TESTIMONY.

BUT WHAT MAKES IT SO COOL

IS, IT IS ABOUT, I DON'T

KNOW, SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE

DIFFERENT TESTIMONIES OF

INDIVIDUALS WHOLIZE WHO

LIVED THEIR OWN LIVES, LIKE

WE DO, EVERY SINGLE DAY.

BUT IT WAS THAT MOMENT WHERE

THEY CAME FACE TO FACE WITH

DEATH.

MANY OF THEM DIED, SOME WENT

TO HEAVEN; SOME WENT TO

HELL.

BUT PRAISE GOD, THEY CAME

BACK TO SHARE THEIR

TESTIMONY.

WHAT EVERY ONE OF THEM SAID

WHEN THEY CAME BACK, THEY

SAID, I WANT TO DO

EVERYTHING I NEED TO DO TO

ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS MY

LORD AND SAVIOR SO I CAN

SPEND ENITY WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

SO THAT'S WHY WE WANT TO

GIVE THIS TO YOU, "LIFE

BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO."

IT IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU PARTNER WITH US.

SO WE'RE ASKING YOU TO DO

JUST THAT, FOR 65 CENTS A

DAY, $20 A MONTH IS ALL IT

TAKES.

SO MANY PEOPLE FROM AROUND

THE WORLD HAS SAID, KRISTI,

WE WANT TO STAND IN THE GAP

FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T STAND

FOR THEMSELVES.

AND WHEN YOU CALL IN RIGHT

NOW, AND YOU SAY, $20 A

MONTH, I CAN DO MORE THAN

THAT, MAYBE $40 A MONTH,

WE'LL GIVE YOU THREE

D.V.D.s.

WE'LL GIVE YOU FIVE

D.V.D.s IF YOU JOIN AT THE

THOUSAND LEVEL, WHICH IS $84

MONTH.

BUT WHATEVER YOU DO, THE KEY

IS TO DO SOMETHING.

WHEN SHOULD YOU DO IT?

RIGHT NOW BECAUSE WE HAVE

SEVEN MINUTES LEFT ON THIS

CHALLENGE, WHICH MEANS EVERY

DOLLAR YOU GIVE IS DOUBLED.

SO CALL IN RIGHT NOW.

Terry: IT IS HARD TO

IMAGINE ANYONE WANTING TO

HARM A NEWBORN BABY, BUT IN

NIGERIA, ONE NEW FATHER HAD

TO ACTUALLY HIDE HIS INFANT

SON BECAUSE THE LOCAL

VILLAGERS WANTED TO KILL

HIM.

EVERYONE TOLD ME TO TAKE

HIM OUT INTO THE BUSH AND

LEAVE HIM THERE TO DIE OR BE

KILLED BY WILD ANIMALS.

Reporter: EVERY

MORNING, ALUWABI HEADS OUT

WITH HIS DAD TO HELP HIM

WORK ON THE FAMILY FARM.

BECAUSE OF THE BOY'S CLEFT

LIP, HIS FATHER HAS FEARED

FOR HIS SON'S LIFE.

THE BOY IS NINE YEARS OLD

NOW, AND PEOPLE ARE STILL

TELLING ME TO TAKE HIM OUT

INTO THE JUNGLE SO HE WILL

DIE.

I SAID, NO, I WILL NOT KILL

HIM.

HE IS MY SON.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN A

LONELY LIFE FOR ALUWABI,

EVEN HIS OWN BROTHERS HAVE

MOCKED HIM, SIMPLY BECAUSE

HE LOOKS DIFFERENT FROM

THEM.

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN VERY

ASHAMED OF MY SICKNESS.

WHENEVER I WENT OUTSIDE, I

COVERED MY FACE WITH MY

HAND.

Reporter: ALUWABI HAS

ASKED HIS DAD, MANY TIMES ON

THEIR WALKS WITH THE FIELD,

IF THERE WAS ANYONE WHO

COULD HELP HIM.

HIS DAD'S ANSWER WAS ALWAYS

THE SAME.

I TOLD THE BOY TO PRAY

THAT ONE DAY GOD WOULD SEND

SOMEONE TO OUR VILLAGE WHO

COULD HELP HIM GET THE

SURGERY.

Reporter: ONE DAY CBN

CAME TO HIS VILLAGE, AND

IMMEDIATELY ARRANGED FOR HIM

TO GO TO A HOSPITAL IN THE

CITY.

THERE A SURGEON REPAIRED THE

BOY'S CLEFT LIP.

WE FOLLOWED UP AND FOUND HIM

HAPPILY INTERACTING WITH HIS

SIBLINGS.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

TO CBN FOR HELPING MY SON

WITH THIS SURGERY.

I PRAY THAT GOD WILL BLESS

YOU SO MUCH FOR WHAT YOU

DID.

Terry: A 9-YEAR-OLD

LITTLE BOY WITH NO HOPE FOR

A FUTURE ON THE OTHER SIDE

OF THE WORLD, AND YOU WERE

ABLE TO TOUCH HIM.

HOW DID YOU DO THAT?

YOU CALLED THAT NUMBER THAT

IS ON YOUR SCREEN, AND SAID,

I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

THAT KIND OF WORK IS BEING

Gordon: WHEN 7-YEAR-OLD

GUISER SUDDENLY STARTED

DOING POOR IN SCHOOL, HIS

TEACHER OPINION NISHED HIM. NISHED-- PUNISHED HIM.

BUT WHAT SHE DIDN'T SNOW IS

HER STUDENT WAS SLOWLY GOING

BLIND.

Reporter: 7-YEAR-OLD

GUISER LIKES TO DRAW AND

LIKES ART.

BUT THIS ACTIVITY BECAME

MORE DIFFICULT FOR GUISER

AFTER HE DEVELOPED A

JUVENILE CATARACT IN HIS

EYE.

WITH THIS EYE, I CAN'T

SEE ANYTHING.

SO I

HAVE

TO GET CLOSE TO

THE PAPER TO SEE THINGS

BETTER.

Reporter: RENA IS A

WIDOW, AND SHE HAS COME TO

DEPEND ON GUISER WITH DAILY

CHORES.

BUT SECRETLYLY SHE WORRIES

HE WILL DEVELOP A CATARACT

IN THE OTHER EYE.

SHE DOES LAUNDRY TO SUPPORT

THEM, BUT THAT ONLY BRINGS

IN ENOUGH FOR FOOD.

I TRIED TO THINK OF

ANYTHING I COULD DO TO GET

EYE SURGERY FOR HIM, BUT IT

WAS IMPOSSIBLE.

I ASK GOD EVERY DAY TO HELP

US.

Reporter: WHEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" LEARNED

OF GUISER'S CONDITION, WE

QUICKLY ARRANGED FOR HIM TO

HAVE A FREE SURGERY, TO

REMOVE THE CATARACT AND PUT

A NEW LENS INTO THE EYE.

IN A MATTER OF MOMENTS, THE

SURGERY WAS DONE.

A FEW WEEKS LATER, WE WENT

BACK TO VISIT GUISER, AND

FOUND HE COULD SEE

PERFECTLY.

I AM VERY HAPPY NOW

BECAUSE I CAN

SEE WITH BOTH

EYES.

WHEN I GROW UP, I AM GOING

TO BE A PAINTER.

I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT MY

SON RECEIVED THIS FREE

SURGERY.

YOU HAVE BEEN A GREAT

BLESSING TO US.

Gordon: THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'VE BEEN A

GREAT BLESSING TO THAT

FAMILY BECAUSE YOU GAVE

SIGHT TO SOMEONE WHO WAS

LOSING THEIR EYESIGHT.

JUST IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO

DO THAT, AND DO THAT ON A

REGULAR BASIS, ALL BECAUSE

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

US.

Terry: DO YOU KNOW HERE

SEVEN AMERICAN FAMILIES IS

GOING TO GO TO BED HUNGRY,

AND 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 STOREHOUSE.

IF I DIDN'T HAVE THE

FOOD, I PROBABLE WOULD HAVE

MISSED WATER OR ELECTRIC SO

I COULD BUY THE FOOD FOR MY

FAMILY.

Reporter: BOB EVANS IS

THE FOUNDER OF THE STORE

HOUSE, AND HE SAYS HE

DOESN'T KNOW WHAT THEY WOULD

DO WITHOUT "OPERATION

BLESSING."

THEY HAVE BEEN SUCH A

BLESSING FOR US.

WE NEVER KNOW WHAT WE'RE

GOING TO GET.

IT'S LIKE CHRISTMAS EVERY

MONTH.

THEY PUT WIFE IN M FOOD

IN MY KITCHEN FOR MY WIFE

AND KIDS.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

EARLIER YOU HEARD ONE OF OUR

PARTNERS SAY, I CAN'T GO TO

ALL OF THESE PLACES

PERSONALLY.

I CAN'T HELP ALL OF THESE

PEOPLE, BUT I GIVE TO CBN

CALL AND JOIN THE "700 CLUB"

WELCOME TO THE "700 CLUB,"

AND AMERICAN PASTOR ON TRIAL IN

IRAN.

IS NOW MISSING.

GUARDS TOLD HIS FAMILY HE IS NO

LONGER IN THE PRISON.

THE PASTOR HASN'T BEEN SEEN

SINCE HIS TRIAL ON MONDAY.

A WEEK OF DISAPPOINTMENT FOR

THE PASTOR, SAYING THAT THE

PASTOR WOULD BE RELEASED AFTER

POSTING BAIL.

AND THEN CAME NEWS THAT BAIL WAS

REJECTED.

HE MANAGED TO SNEAK OUT OF HIS

PRISON CELL.

AND SPOKE OF HIS EXPERIENCE,

QUOTE, THIS IS MY PROCESS TODAY,

ONE DAY I AM TOLD I WILL BE

FREED TO SEE MY CHILDREN ON

CHRISTMAS AND THEN NOT RELEASED.

HE IS CHARGED OF UNDERMINING THE

ISLAMIC GOVERNMENT HOLDING HOUSE

CHURCHES.

JAILED SINCE SEPTEMBER.

THE AMERICAN LAW AND JUSTICE IS

FIGHTING FOR HIS RELEASE.

THEY SAID THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS

NOT DOING ENOUGH.

WE DIDN'T SEE ANY ACTION FROM

THE STATE DEPARTMENT UNTIL LAST

WEEK, SAYING THEY WERE CONCERNED

OF THE MATTER.

ALL THEY HAD DONE BEFORE WAS

SAYING THEY WERE AWARE OF IT.

THEY HAVE FALLEN SHORT OF THIS

AMERICAN'S RELEASE.

50 HAVE SIGNED A LETTER

URGING TO BRING THEM HOME.

AND THEY HAVE SENT IN THIS

MESSAGE:

THE STATE DEPARTMENT IS IN

CLOSE CONTACT WITH THE FAMILY

AND ENGAGED IN THIS CASE.

THE PASTOR'S FAMILY TOLD CBN

NEWS THAT SHE AND HER CHILDREN

TRUST AND PRAY THAT IT'S IN THE

CONTROL OF THE LORD.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP THIS

PASTOR, THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR

LAW AND JUSTICE HAS DRAFTED A

PETITION URGING THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT TO PUT PRESSURE ON

THE FREEING OF THE PASTOR.

SO FAR 225,000 PEOPLE HAVE

SIGNED UP.

YOU CAN BE ONE OF THOSE, GO TO

THE LINK AT CBNNEWS.COM, AND YOU

CAN CALL YOUR SENATOR.

ASK CONGRESSMAN OR SENATOR AND

SAY I WANT YOU TO HELP US TO GET

THIS PASTOR FREED IN IRAN.

CAN WE PUT MORE PRESSURE ON THE

STATE DEPARTMENT TO HELP IN THIS

EFFORT AND GET HIM FREED AND OUT

OF THAT COUNTRY.

OTHER NEWS, AMERICANS IN THE

CAPITAL TODAY TO SPEAK OUT ABOUT

THE UNBORN.

TENS OF THOUSANDS HAVE COME

TOGETHER IN OUR NATION'S CAPITAL

FOR THE ANNUAL MARCH FOR LIFE.

IT'S HELD EVERY YEAR ON THE

ANNIVERSARY OF ROE VERSUS WADE.

RHODE ISLAND'S HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES OVERWHELMING

PASSED LEGISLATION LEGALIZING

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

THE BILL'S FATE IS UNCERTAIN IN

THE RHODE ISLAND SENATE.

SENATOR REED OPPOSES SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE, BUT WILL NOT STOP A

COMMITTEE VOTE AND DIVIDED ON

THE FULL VOTE IN THE SENATE.

WE HAVE TO BE CONFIDENT THAT

THIS WON'T SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY.

CELL PHONE PROVIDER AT&T IS

ISSUING A WARNING TO THEIR

CUSTOMERS ABOUT THE FLU.

CELL PHONES CAN SPREAD THE FLU

EASILY, BECAUSE OF HOW OFTEN

PEOPLE SHAKE HANDS AND SAYING

THAT PEOPLE SHOULD DISINFECT

THEIR PHONES REGULARLY, AND

PREVENT FROM TAKING OUT THEIR

PHONES IN RESTAURANTS.

GOOD ADVICE.

YES, GOOD ADVICE AND MAKE

SURE THAT YOUR REMOTE CONTROL IS

DISINFECTED.

IN THIS FLU SEASON THERE IS A

NASTY BUG GOING AROUND, TAKE

EVERY PRECAUTION.

BACK WITH THE "700 CLUB" AFTER

THIS.

TODAY EILEEN IS HAPPILY

MARRIED AND DEBT FREE.

BUT JUST A FEW YEARS AGO SHE WAS

A SINGLE MOTHER LIVING PAYCHECK

TO PAYCHECK AND STRUGGLING ARE

BANKRUPTCY.

EILEEN HAD RUN OUT OF

OPTIONS.

ELECTRICIAN BY TRADE, SHE HAD A

TOUGH TIME FINDING WORK BECAUSE

CONSTRUCTION JOBS HAD DRIED UP.

I WAS GETTING READY TO LOSE

MY HOME AND COULDN'T PAY THE

ELECTRICITY AND PHONE.

EILEEN WAS ON THE VERGE OF

DECLARING BANKRUPTCY AND THE

BANK WAS ABOUT TO CLOSE HER

HOME.

IT WAS TO THE POINT THAT I

HAD $200 TO MY NAME.

IT WASN'T ENOUGH TO PAY THE

MORTGAGE OR COVER THE BILLS.

AND I SAID, OKAY, GOD, I FEEL

LIKE THIS IS IT.

I AM GOING TO BE ON THE STREETS,

I MIGHT AS WELL GIVE YOU ALL I

HAVE.

SO I GAVE GOD ALL I HAD, $200.

EILEEN SAYS IT WAS THEN THAT

THINGS TURNED AROUND.

I GOT A CALL FROM THE BANK

THAT DAY, AND THEY SAID, WE ARE

GOING TO REINSTATE YOUR LOAN.

AND I SAID HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE.

AND THEY SAID YOU HAVE A

RELATIVE THAT CALLED IN AND GAVE

ALL THAT THAT YOU OWED.

BUT THAT WAS JUST THE

BEGINNING, SHE GOT CAUGHT UP ON

HER BILLS AND GAVE BACK TO THAT

RELATIVE.

I WAS ABLE TO GIVE WHAT GOD

GAVE ME.

AND I SAID, GOD, I BELIEVE YOUR

WORD AND THAT YOU WILL DELIVER

ME.

AND HE WOULD TIME AND TIME AND

TIME AGAIN.

AND HE NEVER FAILED ME, NOT ONCE

DID HE FAIL ME.

YEARS LATER EILEEN MARRIED

LEONARD, AND TOLD HIM HOW GOD

HAD PROVIDED TO HER.

AND SAID IT WAS BECAUSE SHE WAS

FAITHFUL TO GIVE.

THAT'S ONE THING THAT GOD

SAYS, PROVE ME IN THIS, AND SEE

IF I DON'T POUR OUT A BLESSING.

AND I PROVED HIM OVER AND OVER

AGAIN, AND HE POURED OUT

BLESSING AFTER BLESSING.

BEFORE LONG LEONARD SAW HOW

IT WORKED IN HIS LIFE AS WELL.

AS WE GIVE IN FAITH TO GOD.

GOD IS GOING TO TURN AROUND AND

BLESS US.

SO THEN WE CAN BLESS OTHERS

MORE.

ONE OF THE PLACES THAT THEY

GIVE TO IS CBN.

ANY TIME I SEE THEM GOING

INTO A THIRD-WORLD COUNTRY.

AND SEEING KIDS HAVING SURGERY

AND DRINKING WATER.

THOSE ARE THINGS THAT EXCITE ME.

I KNOW I CAN'T GO THERE AND DO

THOSE THINGS BUT CAN ADD TO THE

CAUSE.

ONE OF THE BIG THINGS IS

OPERATION BLESSING.

WHEN THERE IS DISASTERS, THAT'S

THE CHURCH IN ACTION.

THE COUPLE IS NOW DEBT FREE

AND THEIR HOME IS PAID FOR.

YOU REALLY CAN'T AFFORD NOT

TO TITHE.

BECAUSE GOD IS A GOOD GOD.

AND HE WANTS TO SHOW OFF.

HE REALLY WANTS TO SHOW OFF.

HERE'S A PROMISE FROM GOD,

ISAIAH 58, I WANT YOU TO SHARE

YOUR FOOD WITH THE HUNGRY AND

WELCOME THOSE WHO WANDER IN YOUR

HOMES.

GIVE CLOTHES TO THOSE WHO NEED

IT.

IF YOU DO THESE THINGS, YOUR

SALVATION WILL COME LIKE THE

DAWN, AND THEN THE LORD WILL

QUICKLY REPLY.

IF YOU WANT QUICK ANSWERS, JUST

AS EILEEN GOT, DO WHAT SHE DID,

AND OFFERED TO GOD AND TITHE AND

GOD HONORED HER.

AND ONE COUPLE WAS HIT HARD BY

THE RECESSION AND AT ONE POINT

HAD TO PICK BETWEEN BUYING FOOD

OR GAS.

JOSEPH AND

MELANIE LOVED THE

FREEDOM OF RIDING THEIR

MOTORCYCLE ON THE RIDE.

THE HARDINGS LIVE IN THE

HEARTLAND OF MICHIGAN.

TODAY THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL

ENTREPRENEURS BUT THEY HAVE

KNOWN THEIR SHARE OF HARD TIMES.

MELANIE WAS A COMPUTER DRAFTER

AND JOSEPH A COOK.

STILL LIKE MANY AMERICANS THEY

LIVE PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK.

IT'S A STRUGGLE AND A FEAR

THAT YOU LAY AWAKE AT NIGHT

WONDERING WHERE THAT NEXT $10

COMES FROM.

FOR THE BASIC NEEDS.

MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A

PRISONER.

LIKE YOU WILL NEVER GET

AHEAD.

WITH

A STRUGGLING

ECONOMY,

MELANIE SAYS THEY HAD TO MAKE

TOUGH DECISIONS.

DO I HAVE GAS IN MY CAR TO GO

TO A FRIEND'S BIRTHDAY PARTY OR

HAVE TO STAY HOME TO GET TO

WORK.

TWO DAYS BEFORE THE PAYCHECK I

MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PAY MY

UTILITY BILL AND SUFFER THAT

TURNED OFF.

A FEW DAYS BEFORE BACK

SURGERY, JOSEPH WATCHED THE "700

CLUB" AND LEARNED ABOUT THE

OBEDIENCE OF GIVING.

YOU JUST NEED TO BE OBEDIENT.

WATCHING THE "700 CLUB" IS

WHAT SPOKE TO HIM.

REAL PEOPLE HOW THEIR FINANCES

AND BUSINESSES WERE CHANGED BY

TITHING.

HE GOT THAT MESSAGE FROM CBN.

MELANIE GREW UP IN CHURCH AND

KNEW ABOUT THE TITHING BUT WAS

INCONSISTENT.

AND SOON THEY STARTED GIVING AS

A COUPLE.

SHE LEFT HER JOB AND STARTED A

HOME-BASE BUSINESS.

WHEN JOSEPH GOT

BACK ON HIS

FEET, HE STARTED SELLING ITEMS

ON EBAY.

HE'S BLESSED ME AND A LOT OF

TIMES I BUY THINGS, AND MAYBE

IT'S WORTH SOMETHING AND I SPENT

4 OR $5 AND IT'S WORTH 300.

IN A THREE-YEAR TIME FRAME IT

MULTIPLIED BY 10.

A TENTH WE GIVE AND NOW ITS COME

BACK TO US AND KEEPS GROWING.

MELANIE AND JOSEPH LOVE

GIVING TO CBN EVERY MONTH.

CBN FOLLOWS THE WORD, WHEN I

WATCH THE SHOW, I KNOW THAT GOD

IS THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING THAT

CBN DOES.

I REALLY WANT TO SUPPORT AN

ORGANIZATION LIKE THAT.

JOSEPH SAYS HE NO LONGER

FEELS LIKE A PRISONER ON HIS

FINANCES.

I JUST FEEL PEACE.

SINCE I HAVE BEEN TITHING, I

NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE

BILLS.

THERE IS MONEY TO PAY THE BILLS.

HE DOESN'T NEED OUR MONEY,

YOU KNOW.

TITHING IS FOR US.

IT'S AN INVESTMENT AND OPENS THE

DOOR FOR US TO BE BLESSED

FINANCIALLY SO WE CAN BLESS

OTHERS.

MELANIE GOT THE SECRET.

TITHING ISN'T FOR GOD.

IT'S FOR US.

SO WE CAN WALK IN HIS BLESSING.

HERE IT IS FROM MATTHEW 6, DON'T

WORRY ABOUT FOOD, DRINK OR

CLOTHING.

YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER KNOWS YOUR

NEEDS AND WILL GIVE TO YOU IF

YOU LIVE FOR HIM AND MAKE HIS

KINGDOM YOUR PRIMARY CONCERN.

I HAVE WONDERFUL NEWS AND CBN

PARTNERS LIKE MELANIE AND

JOSEPH, SAYING WE WANT TO

CHALLENGE OTHERS TO GIVE AND

MATCH THEIR GIFTS UP TO

$150,000.

FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES.

LET'S PRAY.

THIS.

AND WE JUST KNOW THAT YOUR

PROMISES ARE TRUE.

AND YOU WILL OPEN WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR OUT BLESSINGS WE

CANNOT CONTAIN.

ENCOURAGE PEOPLE THAT ARE

WATCHING, SPEAK TO THEM.

YOUR BODY, YOU WILL BE PRESENT

WITH JESUS FOR ALL ETERNITY.

IT'S SAID THAT ONE MAN'S

EXPERIENCE TRUMPS ANOTHER MAN'S

OPINION.

DOUBLED.

OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS

VOLUNTEERS HAVE JOINED TO HELP

SURVIVORS OF SUPER STORM SANDY.

SURVIVORS LIKE THIS COUPLE THAT

HAD NO MONEY TO REBUILD THE HOME

THEY LOST.

BURT AND JEAN TRIED TO

SALVAGE WHAT THEY COULD AS

HURRICANE SANDY RIPPED THROUGH

THEIR HOME.

THEY WERE AT THE POINT OF ADDING

TO THE HOUSE WHEN THE STORM HIT.

THERE WAS AN AREA THAT ROTTED

OUT.

THERE WAS NOTHING THAT WAS

LEFT IN THIS.

EVERYTHING WAS THROWN OUT.

BOTH IN THEIR 80S SPENT THEIR

SAVINGS ON THE ADDITION AND

COULDN'T AFFORD THE COSTLY

REPAIRS TO THEIR HOME.

JODIE REMEMBERS MEETING THE

FAMILY.

WHEN WE MET JEAN AND BURT AND

WE KNEW THIS IS A FAMILY WE

NEEDED TO HELP, THEY WERE AN

INSPIRATION TO US.

OPERATION BLESSING WORKED

TIRELESSLY.

THE METZ THOUGHT THEY WERE JUST

GUTTING THEIR HOUSE, BUT WHEN

THEY CAME HOME THREE WEEKS

LATER, THEY WERE IN FOR A BIG

SURPRISE.

WHEN SHE OPENED THE DOOR AND

WE SAW THE REST OF THE HOUSE, IT

WAS ALMOST MORE THAN YOUR HEART

COULD TAKE.

I MEAN YOU JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW

TO DEAL WITH IT.

EMOTIONALLY AND GRACEFULNESS.

AND APPRECIATION TO ALL THE

PEOPLE THAT DID THE WORK.

WHEN I WALKED IN THIS

AFTERNOON, I REALLY DIDN'T

BELIEVE THAT WAS MY HOUSE.

IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

YOU WONDER WHERE IT ALL CAME

FROM?

AND WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING.

UNBELIEVABLE.

REALLY UNBELIEVABLE.

WITH YOUR SUPPORT, OPERATION

BLESSING WILL CONTINUE TO HELP

PEOPLE LIKE THE METZ'S AROUND

THE WORLD IN TIMES OF DISASTER.

ANYONE WHO HAS DONATED TO

OPERATION BLESSING WILL CONTINUE

TO DONATE TO MAKE PEOPLE'S LIVES

FEEL MORE BLESSED.

HOW WONDERFUL.

AND HOW WONDERFUL THAT ALL OF

THESE VOLUNTEERS DO THE WORK AND

HAVE A SMILE ON THEIR FACE AND

LOVE IN THEIR HEART.

HOW WONDERFUL THAT IS AND ALL

MADE POSSIBLE BECAUSE PEOPLE

LIKE YOU CARE TO GIVE.

WHEN DISASTER STRIKES, WE WANT

TO STRIKE BACK WITH LOVE AND

COMPASSION.

AND ONE OF THE UNTOLD STORIES

ABOUT SUPER STORM SANDY, MANY

PEOPLE IN NEW YORK AND NEW

JERSEY WHO WERE SEVERELY

AFFECTED DIDN'T HAVE FLOOD

INSURANCE.

THEY ARE LEFT WITH NOTHING AND

HOW DO THEY REBUILD THEIR LIVES.

WELL, WE WANT TO BE THERE FOR

THEM.

PEOPLE LIKE THE COUPLE YOU SAW,

PEOPLE IN NEED.

IF THAT'S YOU AND YOU WANT TO

HELP US, CALL THE "700 CLUB,"

800-759-0700 AND SAY YES, I WANT

TO BE A PART OF EVERYTHING YOU

ARE DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

EXPRESS, DO IT NOW.

800-759-0700.

EVERY MORNING THE FATHER IN

THIS NEXT STORY GOES OFF TO WORK

DEEP IN THE COAL MINES OF CHINA.

IT'S A DANGEROUS JOB, BUT THIS

MAN IS RISKING HIS LIFE TO TRY

TO SAVE HIS DAUGHTER.

WORKING SHIFTS AS A COAL

MINER, HIS SHIFTS ARE LONG.

AND RARELY GETS A NIGHT OFF.

HE DOES IT FOR HIS FIVE-YEAR-OLD

DAUGHTER.

HE KNOWS SHE'S COUNTING ON HIM.

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH SERIOUS

HEART DEFECT AS A BABY.

AND ALL THE DOCTORS SAID UNLESS

SHE GOT HEART SURGERY, SHE WOULD

DIE.

SHE WAS SO WEAK AND FRAGILE

AND ALWAYS SICK.

IT BROKE MY HEART TO SEE MY

DAUGHTER LIKE THAT.

BUT WE COULDN'T GET HELP, WE

COULDN'T PAY FOR SURGERY.

DESPITE HIS DANGEROUS JOB, HE

ONLY BRINGS IN $150 A MONTH.

SOMETIMES THE MINES GET

FLOODED.

BUT I WOULD RATHER RISK DYING

THAN LOSING MY DAUGHTER.

AS HARD AS HE WORKED, HE

COULDN'T RAISE ENOUGH FOR

SURGERY.

AND SUNGYOUNG'S LIFE TOOK A

WORSE TURN.

SOME SAID IT WASN'T WORTH IT

AND JUST FORGIVE ABOUT IT.

BUT WE DIDN'T GIVE THAT A SECOND

THOUGHT.

THEN HER MOTHER HEARD THAT

CBN WAS COMING TO TOWN TO FUND

SURGERY LIKE HER DAUGHTER.

SOON THE DOCTORS REPAIRED THE

HOLE IN HER HEART.

I WAS SO RELIEVED NOW.

I WAS SO CONCERNED ABOUT MY

DAUGHTER.

BUT NOT ANYMORE.

ALL OF MY WORRIES ARE GONE AND I

BELIEVE SHE HAS A BRIGHT FUTURE.

THANK YOU, CBN.

WHAT PARENTS CAN'T RELATE TO

THAT STORY?

WHAT PARENTS CAN'T UNDERSTAND

THE ACHE IN YOUR HEART KNOWING

THAT YOUR CHILD IS DYING AND HOW

DO I FIND AN ANSWER?

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS YOU ARE

BRINGING THAT TO PEOPLE AROUND

THE WORLD.

OFFERING RELIEF FOR PEOPLE THAT

CAN'T AFFORD IT.

HELP US DO THAT.

LOOK AT THIS PRECIOUS GIRL.

HOW COULD YOU NOT LOVE THAT

FACE, SHE HAS A HOPE AND FUTURE

AND THAT'S WHY WE ARE ASKING YOU

TO CALL, 800-759-0700, AND YOU

CAN LOG ON TO CBN.COM AND JOIN

THE "700 CLUB" THAT WAY.

OVER TO KRISTI.

THANK YOU, WHEN YOU THINK OF

HEAVEN, WHAT IS THE FIRST THING

THAT COMES TO MIND?

PEARLY GATES?

STREETS OF GOLD?

IN THIS DVD PEOPLE SAY THERE IS

SO MUCH MORE TO HEAVEN THAN YOU

CAN THINK.

WHAT IF YOU KNEW HEAVEN WAS

REAL BECAUSE YOU HAD SEEN IT?

EVERYTHING IS ALIVE, NOTHING

IS DEAD.

BECAUSE YOU HAD BEEN THERE.

THERE IS MORE THAN LOVE THAN

YOU CAN IMAGINE.

HOW WOULD IT CHANGE HOW YOU

LIVE YOUR LIFE?

HE WAS SO EAGER, WE HAVE TO

GET PEOPLE SAVED, PEOPLE HAVE TO

KNOW ABOUT JESUS.

GET THE REAL STORY FROM

PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED

"LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE".

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU PARTNER WITH US.

SO CALL IN NOW.

WHEN YOU CALL IN AND SAY, "700

CLUB" PARTNER IS NOT ENOUGH, AND

I WANT TO GO GOLD.

WE WILL GIVE YOU THREE OF THESE,

ONE TO GIVE AWAY OR FOR A 1,000

CLUB MEMBER WE WILL GIVE YOU

FIVE.

IN A SLIPPING ECONOMY,

HOUSING COULD BE NOT PROFITABLE.

WHEN THE MARKET BURST AND

FINDING HIMSELF $100,000 IN

DEBT.

IN THE BEAUTIFUL ISLANDS OF

HAWAI'I, JEFF TOOK OVER HIS

FATHER'S BUSINESS, AND RESTORED

AND FLIPPED HOUSES.

THE FIRST HOUSE I DID, IT WAS

REALLY STRESSFUL.

WE DID REALLY WELL ON THAT

HOUSE, WE WALKED AWAY WITH 75 TO

80 GRAND.

SO JEFF EXPANDED HIS

BUSINESS.

I FELT THAT HE NEEDED ME, AND

NOT BELIEVING IN GOD.

BUT I KNEW ABOUT TITHING BUT

DIDN'T.

WHEN THE MARKET TOOK A TURN,

JEFF WAS STUCK WITH A HOUSE THAT

WOULDN'T SELL.

WEEKS TURNED TO MONTHS AND

MONTHS INTO A YEAR.

I WAS IN A POSITION THAT I HAD

TO SELL.

AND WITH THIS I LOST OVER 100

GRAND.

HE STARTED COMING HOME FOR

LUNCH TO SAVE MONEY.

WHILE HE ATE HE WATCHED THE "700

CLUB."

I STARTED WATCHING AND THEY

HAD INTERVIEWS WHERE PEOPLE WERE

STARTING TO TITHE ON THEIR

LOSSES AND BUSINESSES AND HOW

THEY CAME OUT OF THIS.

AND IT TOOK A WHOLE WEEK TO

REALIZE THAT I HADN'T BEEN

FAITHFUL IN TITHING, I WAS

THINKING ABOUT MYSELF.

AND I NEEDED TO PUT GOD FIRST.

JEFF BEGAN TO TITHE IN HIS

CHURCH AND THEN WENT ONLINE TO

GIVE TO CBN:

IN THE BEGINNING IT WAS TOUGH

BUT I REALIZED I NEEDED TO TRUST

GOD.

JEFF INCREASED HIS GIVING AND

IN TIME HE PAID DOWN HIS DEBT.

MY ACCOUNTANT TOLD ME, YOU

HAVE THE SECRET.

AND I SAID WHAT DO YOU MEAN, AND

HE SAID EVERY YEAR I SEE YOU

TITHE MORE AND YOUR INCREASE IN

INCOME GROWS MORE.

JEFF SAID IN HIS PAST TWO

YEARS HIS BUSINESS HAS EXCEEDED

HIS WILDEST DREAMS IN PROFITS.

THE "700 CLUB" WAS THERE WHEN

I NEEDED SOMEBODY.

EVEN IN THE ROUGHEST TIMES I

LEARNED TO TRUST GOD.

GOD WILL ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF ME,

NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES, GOD

WILL BE FIRST.

NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES

GOD WOULD BE FIRST.

HE FULFILLING SOMETHING THAT GOD

WARNED ISRAEL ABOUT, DEUTERONOMY

8, NEVER THINK THAT IT WAS YOUR

OWN STRENGTH THAT MADE YOU

WEALTHY.

ALWAYS REMEMBER IT'S THE LORD

YOUR GOD THAT GIVES YOU THE

POWER TO BE RICH.

JEFF LEARNED THAT, AND WHEN HE

STARTED TO PUT GOD FIRST, THEN

THINGS AROUND EE EE EED -- THINGS TURNED

AROUND AND INCREASES CAME.

IF YOU WANT TO START A GENEROUS

LIFE, AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A GIVER.

CALL 800-759-0700 TO SAY YES, I

WANT TO JOIN THE "700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH.

AND YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE LIKE

JEFF.

WE HAVE 16 MINUTES LEFT ON A

$150,000.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU NOW,

CALL 800-759-0700.

SCOTT ARNOLD IS A SUCCESSFUL

BUSINESSMAN WITH A GREAT FAMILY

AND BEAUTIFUL HOME.

BUT JUST SEVEN YEARS AGO SCOTT

WAS LIVING IN A CARDBOARD BOX

AND EATING OUT OF A DUMPSTER.

MY FIRST WIFE DIED OF BREAST

CANCER.

AND HE PASSED AWAY, I FLOUNDERED

AND WAS HOMELESS IN THE STREETS

OF TUCSON, ARIZONA.

IN 2005, SCOTT GOT OFF THE

STREETS AND DRUGS AND BECAME A

CHRISTIAN AND LEARNED ABOUT

TITHING.

WHEN HE GOT A JOB IN

CONSTRUCTION, HE STARTED TO PUT

IT IN PRACTICE.

IT WAS TOUGH FOR ME COMING

OFF THE STREETS, IT WAS A BIG

DECISION.

RIGHT AWAY I SAW THE SUPER

NATURAL FAVOR OF GOD, AND I GOT

AN APARTMENT.

SCOTT STARTED PRAYING FOR

PEOPLE AND HIRED PEOPLE IN

REHABILITATION CENTER.

I PRAYED FOR A MONTH AND

OTHERS HAD COLLEGE DEGREES, AND

THEY HIRED ME BECAUSE THEY SAW

THE LOVE I HAD FOR OTHER PEOPLE.

AND HOW MUCH I WANTED TO HELP

OTHER PEOPLE GET BETTER.

SCOTT WAS OFFERED THE

POSITION OF RESIDENT MANAGER IN

2006.

JUST THREE YEARS LATER HE

RECEIVED ANOTHER PROMOTION.

GOD GAVE ME PROMOTIONS THAT

NO ONE ELSE COULD HAVE GIVEN ME.

PEOPLE AND BUILDING WELLS IN

AFRICA.

TRIPS YET.

TODAY SCOTT IS HAPPILY

MARRIED AND HAS A FAMILY.

CONSIDERS GIVING HIS SUCCESS.

AS I FAITHFULLY TITHED GOD

GAVE TO ME.

I LIVED IN A CARDBOARD BOX AND

EATING OUT OF DUMPSTERS.

AND NOW GOD HAS PROVIDED AN

INCREDIBLE HOME WHERE I CAN HAVE

BIBLE STUDIES IN MY HOUSE.

IT'S NOT A CASTLE, BUT IT'S MY

CASTLE.

OUTSIDE ALL YEAR LONG EVEN IN

TEMPERATURES BELOW ZERO.

I AM HERE IN UKRAINE IN A

GYPSY CAMP.

THERE IS 13 PEOPLE LIVING INSIDE

THIS TENT, THIS ONE OF THEM.

SEVEN YEARS OLD.

THERE IS A BABY IN HERE.

THIS ONE IS WET TO THE CORE.

AND THIS FAMILY IS DOING THEIR

BEST TO MAKE A LIVING.

YOU SEE THAT THE DAD IS MAKING

BASKETS OUT OF PIECES OF TWIG.

AND THE MOM IS GATHERING

MUSHROOM TO BRING FOOD HOME FOR

THE CHILDREN.

OUR GOAL IS TO BUILD A HOME FOR

THEM, TAKE THEM OUT OF THE COLD

AND RAIN.

AND ALLOW THEM TO MAKE IT

THROUGH THE WINTER MAYBE HAVE A

GOOD LIFE HERE.

WORKING WITH OUR CBN STAFF IN

UKRAINE, ORPHAN'S PROMISE WAS

PUT TOGETHER TO BUILD A SHELTER

FOR THIS FAMILY.

THE MOST EFFICIENT AND TIMELY

SOLUTION WAS A HOUSE MADE OF

METAL WITH A STRONG FLOOR, AND

AN AIR-TIGHT WINDOW AND DOOR.

ALONG WITH A WOOD-BURNING STOVE

MAKES THIS ONE OF THE BEST HOMES

IN THIS GYPSY COMMUNITY.

DURING MY VISIT, WE WERE ALARMED

AT THE CONDITION OF THE

TWO-MONTH OLD BABY BOY THAT HAD

A TERRIBLE COUGH AND FEVER.

HIS MOTHER WAS NO MALNOURISHED

THAT NURSING WASN'T ENOUGH.

THAT DAY WE GAVE HER FORMULA AND

MEDICINE FOR PETRO.

NOW HE HAS PUT ON WEIGHT AND

LOOKS HEALTHIER.

IN FACT EVERYONE LOOKS

HEALTHIER.

IN ADDITION TO THE FATHER'S

BASKET MAKING WE HAVE PROVIDED

FOR THEIR LIVELIHOOD TO SUSTAIN

THIS FAMILY.

I THANK GOD FOR THE HELP YOU

HAVE GIVEN US.

I COULDN'T DREAM THAT SOMEONE

WOULD GIVE US SUCH A HOUSE.

THANK YOU.

POVERTY BEYOND IMAGINING.

IN AMERICA A DRINK OF WATER IS

AS CLOSE AS THE FAUCET.

IN ONE HONDURAN VILLAGE IT MEANS

A LONG WALK.

EVERY DAY THEY HAVE TO WALK

HOUR TO GET A CONTAINER OF

WATER.

I REMEMBER ASKING FOR A

FARMER IF WE CAN GET WATER THAT

IS CLOSER, BUT HE SAID NO, IT

WAS FOR HIS ANIMALS.

DURING THE RAINY SEASON IT

CAN BE DANGEROUS TO COLLECT THE

WATER.

ONE DAY I FELL DOWN INTO THE

CURRENT AND HAD TO GRAB SOME

BRANCHES JUST TO SAVE MYSELF.

ANOTHER

DAY

MICHELLE

REMEMBERED RESCUING A YOUNG

BOY

THAT NEARLY DROWN

IN

THE

STREAM.

A

COUPLE

MINUTES

LATER,

HE

WOULD HAVE

DIED.

MICHELLE

AND

HIS

FAMILY

WAITED FOR THE

GOVERNMENT TO

HELP

THEM WITH A

WELL.

AND THEN THEY

FOUND A COMMUNITY

HIDDEN IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DUG

A WELL FOR THEM.

AND INSTALLED PIPES INTO EVERY

HOME.

THE OPERATION BLESSING CAME

TO HELP US, EVERYTHING CHANGED

FOR US IN THE VILLAGE.

THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN ARE SAFE

WHO HAS BEEN THERE.

TAKE A LOOK.

I BEGAN TO FEEL A TUGGING, A

PULLING.

LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS, DEMONS THEY

TUG AND CALL MY NAME.

I HEARD, WE GOTCHA, AND I SAW

SOULS THAT WERE CRYING.

AND HOPELESS.

MAN, THAT IS SUPER SCARY.

HELL IS REAL.

DEMONS ARE REAL.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GO THERE.

AND GOD DOESN'T WANT YOU TO GO

THERE.

AND WE DON'T WANT YOU TO GO

THERE.

THAT'S WHY WE HAVE "LIFE BEYOND

THE GRAVE PART 2."

THIS IS STORIES ABOUT HEAVEN AND

SUPER SCARY WARNINGS ABOUT HELL.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS.

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU.

AND JOIN THE "700 CLUB," HOW

MUCH?

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH.

AS GORDON MENTIONED WE ARE IN

THE MIDDLE OF A BIG CHALLENGE,

WITH 27 MINUTES LEFT ON THE

CLOCKS.

THAT MEANS IF YOU GO TO THE

PHONES, EVERY DOLLAR YOU PLEDGE

WILL BE MATCHED DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR.

THIS IS THE HOUR AND THE TIME

THAT WE NEED YOUR HELP.

WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU, GO

TO YOUR PHONES NOW.

WHEN AMERICA'S HOUSING MARKET

COLLAPSED, DALE LAWSON WAS LEFT

WITH $120,000.

BACK THEN HE COULDN'T MAKE THE

MINIMUM PAYMENT.

BUT TODAY DALE IS COMPLETELY

DEBT FREE.

AFTER HIS DIVORCE, DALE

LAWSON STRUGGLED FINANCIALLY.

BECAUSE HE WAS A REALTOR, AND

WITH THE HOUSING MARKET CRASH HE

CRASHED WITH IT.

I ONLY GET PAID WHEN I SELL A

HOUSE.

DALE TRIED TO MAKE MINIMUM

PAYMENTS ON HIS DEBT, BUT EVEN

THAT PROVED TO BE IMPOSSIBLE.

I FELT EXTREMELY DESPERATE,

REALIZING I HAD ALL

GOING

OUT

AND NOT ENOUGH COMING IN.

IT WAS JUST A NIGHTMARE.

DALE EVENTUALLY MOVED OUT OF

HIS HOME AND INTO A CHEAP HOTEL.

IT HAD OLD PANELLED WALLS,

PAPER THIN.

YOU COULD HEAR EVERYTHING GOING

IN THE HOTEL.

BUT IT WAS THAT HOTEL THAT

DALE DECIDED TO FAST AND PRAY.

AND GOD REVEALED A TRUTH TO HIM.

MY FINANCES CHANGED FOR THE

NEGATIVE BECAUSE OF NOT TITHING.

SO DALE IMMEDIATELY BEGAN TO

TITHE AGAIN, EVEN THOUGH HE SAID

IT WAS HARD.

THAT MONEY SHOULD HAVE GONE

TO THE PAYMENTS, AND THE DEBT.

IT DIDN'T MAKE SENSE.

BUT IT MADE SENSE IN THAT I KNEW

THAT GOD WAS THERE AND HE WOULD

HELP ME.

DALE SAYS HE DID HELP HIM.

EVERY MONTH THAT WENT BY THAT

I DIDN'T MISS ANY PAYMENTS.

KEPT BUILDING MY FAITH AND

HELPING ME TO TRUST GOD EACH

MONTH EVEN MORE.

ONE MONTH DALE SAW THE BILLS

DUE AND NEEDED MORE IN

COMMISSIONS.

THAT MONTH HE RECEIVED A BONUS

PAYMENT.

I GET THIS CHECK IN MY OFFICE

IN THE MAIL FROM A DOCTOR AND

HIS WIFE FOR THAT SAME AMOUNT.

INCREASED TO THIS LEVEL HE

DECIDED TO GIVE MORE.

WATCHING CHRISTIAN TELEVISION

AND OTHER PEOPLE'S TESTIMONIES

HELPED ME REALIZE I WANTED TO

GIVE MORE.

DALE BECAME A CBN PARTNER AND

HE SAW A GROWTH

IN A SHRINKING

ECONOMY.

I BEGAN TO SEE MY DEBTS PAID

OFF.

I WASN'T WORKING ANY MORE HOURS.

I WASN'T WORKING ANY HARDER; YET

IT WAS CLEAR THAT GOD WAS

BRINGING ME CUSTOMERS.

BY THE END OF THE THIRD YEAR,

DALE WAS GIVING AWAY MORE.

THAT YEAR HE PAID OFF THE LAST

OF HIS 100,000 DEBT.

MY DEBT BEGAN PAID OFF IN

LARGE LUMPS.

SEVEN, 10,

$15,000.

JUST FROM

SALES.

DALE

EVENTUALLY REMARRIED AND

HAS TWO CHILDREN.

THE COUPLE CURRENTLY GIVE AND

RECENTLY DOUBLED THEIR PLEDGE TO

CBN.

BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE PRINCIPLE

OF GIVING WORKS.

IF ANYONE IS SKEPTICAL OF

GIVING OVER AND ABOVE THE TITHE.

AND GIVING TO AN ORGANIZATION

LIKE CBN.

I WOULD BEG THEM, BEG THEM TO

TRY IT.

BEG THEM TO SEE WHAT GOD WOULD

DO FOR THEM.

SEE WHAT GOD WILL DO FOR YOU.

IF YOU JUST START A LIFE OF

GIVING.

IT'S NOT AN ON AGAIN, OFF AGAIN

THING.

IT'S NOT SOME KIND OF HEAVENLY

SLOT MACHINE.

BUT IF YOU SAY THAT I WILL

DEDICATE MY LIFE TO GIVING AND

GIVING TO THE WORK OF GOD.

THEN YOU GET WHAT DALE GOT, YOU

WALK INTO BLESSINGS.

SO MUCH YOU CAN'T CONTAIN IT.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT.

CALL US.

800-759-0700 AND SAY YES, I WANT

TO BE A PART OF IT.

WE HAVE A CHALLENGE AND WE HAVE

88,000 TO GO.

800-759-0700

WELL, IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE

ANYONE WANTING TO HARM A

NEW-BORN BABY.

BUT IN NIGERIA, ONE NEW DAD HAD

TO HIRE SOMEONE TO PROTECT

HIS

SON.

EVERYONE TOLD

ME TO GO OUT IN

THE BUSH AND LEAVE HIM THERE TO

DIE OR KILLED BY WILD ANIMALS.

EVERY DAY THIS MAN HAS TO GO

OUT AND WORK AND BECAUSE OF HIS

CLEFT LIP THEY WANT TO KILL THE

BOY.

THE BOY IS NINE YEARS OLD AND

EVERYONE SAYS TO TAKE HIM TO THE

JUNGLE AND WILL DIE.

AND I SAID NO, I WILL NOT KILL

HIM, HE'S MY SON.

IT'S BEEN A HARD LIFE FOR

HIM, HE LOOKS DIFFERENT.

I ASHAMED OF MY SICKNESS,

WHEN I GO OUTSIDE, I COVER MY

FACE WITH MY HAND.

HIS DAD ASKED FOR ANYONE TO

HELP, AND HIS DAD'S ANSWER IS

THE SAME.

I TOLD THE BOY TO PRAY, THAT

ONE DAY GOD WILL SEND SOMEONE TO

OUR VILLAGE TO HELP HIM GET THE

SURGERY.

ONE DAY CBN CAME TO THE

VILLAGE AND ARRANGED FOR HIM TO

GO TO A NEARBY HOSPITAL AND

THERE THE SURGEON REPAIRED THE

BOY'S CLEFT LIP.

WE FOUND HIM HAPPILY INTERACTING

WITH HIS SIBLINGS.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO

CBN FOR HELPING MY SON WITH THIS

SURGERY.

I LOVE THAT SHOT OF HIM AT

THE END, SITTING WITH A SMILE ON

HIS FACE.

AND INTERACTING WITH HIS FAMILY.

THIS IS A BOY THAT HAD TO HIDE

THE LOWER HALF OF HIS FACE EVERY

TIME HE WENT OUTSIDE OF THE

HOUSE.

I THINK OF THE SCRIPTURE THAT

SAYS GOD LIFTS OUR HEADS.

WILL YOU CALL NOW, 800-759-0700.

CALL AND SAY, I WANT TO JOIN THE

"700 CLUB."

DID POORLY IN SCHOOL.

HIS TEACHER PUNISHED

HIM.

WHAT SHE DIDN'T KNOW THAT HER

STUDENT WAS SLOWLY GOING BLIND.

SEVEN-YEAR-OLD GEYSER LOVES

ART, HE DRAWS EVERYTHING HE

SEES.

BUT DURING HIS FAVORITE ACTIVITY

BECAME MORE DIFFICULT FOR GEYSER

AFTER DEVELOPING A JUVENILE

CATARACT IN HIS LEFT E

YE.

WITH THIS

EYE, I

CAN'T

SEE

ANYTHING.

SO I HAVE TO GET CLOSER TO THE

PAPER TO SEE THINGS BETTER.

RINA IS A WIDOW AND DEPENDS

ON GEYSER TO HELP HER WITH THE

CHORES.

BUT SHE WORRIES THAT HE WILL

DEVELOP A CATARACT IN HIS OTHER

EYE AND GO COMPLETELY BLIND.

I TRIED TO THINK OF ANYTHING

I COULD DO TO GET EYE SURGERY

FOR HIM.

BUT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE.

I HAVE GOT EVERYDAY TO

HELP.

WHEN OPERATION BLESSING

LEARNED OF GEYSER'S CONDITION,

WE ARRANGED FOR HIM TO HAVE

SURGERY AND

PUT A

LENS

IN THE

EYE.

IN A MATTER OF

MOMENTS

THE

SURGERY

WAS

DONE.

WE WENT BACK TO SEE GEYSER AND

LEARNED HE CAN SEE

PERFECTLY.

I AM HAPPY

NOW, I CAN SEE

WITH BOTH EYES.

WHEN I GROW

UP,

I AM GOING TO BE

A

PAINTER.

I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT MY SON

CHRIS SUPPORTS HIS WIFE AND

TWO CHILDREN AS AN AUTO

COMMISSION.

I THANK GOD THAT I HAVE A

JOB.

BUT WITH A CUT IN HIS JOB,

THE FAMILY IS FINDING WAYS TO

STRETCH THE BUDGET, THEY ARE

GETTING FOOD FROM OPERATION

BLESSING.

BOB EVANS IS THE FOUNDER OF

JOSEPH'S HOUSE, AND SAID THAT

THIS IS A TEAM EFFORT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE DO

WITHOUT OPERATION BLESSING, THEY

ARE SUCH A BLESSING, THEY BRING

IN A VARIETY OF FOOD.

WE NEVER KNOW WHAT WE WILL GET,

IT'S LIKE CHRISTMAS.

THEY PUT FOOD ON OUR TABLE,

AND I AM GLAD TO KNOW THERE ARE

OTHER PEOPLE TRYING TO DO THE

BEST FOR THEIR FAMILY.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE ELSE YOU

CAN TOUCH PEOPLE AROUND THE

WORLD AS IN THE UNITED STATES.

WE ARE ASKING YOU TO GO TO THE

I WANT TO TAKE YOU TO INDONESIA

TO MEET A COUPLE WHOSE CHILD WAS

DYING.

HERE IS A LOOK HOW PEOPLE LIKE

YOU SAVED HIS LIFE.

LITTLE DION WAS SICK AS A

BABY AND HIS PARENTS DIDN'T KNOW

WHY.

WE TOOK HIM TO

A

DOCTOR

IN

THE CITY TWO

DIFFERENT

TIMES BUT

THEY COULDN'T DIAGNOSE WHAT WAS

WRONG WITH HIM.

OUR HEARTS WERE BROKEN, WE

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO THE

CHILD.

AND THAT'S WHEN THEY LEARNED

ABOUT OPERATION CLINIC, WHERE

THEY DIAGNOSED DION WITH SEVERE

MALNUTRITION.

THE BONES IN DION'S HANDS

WERE SO WEAK.

OPERATION BLESSING GAVE DION

ANENT

ANENT -- ANT

BIOTIC.

AND THEY PROVIDED FOR THEM

AND

BUILT AN OUTDOOR KITCHEN.

THE LOVE THAT YOU GIVE TO US,

WE CANNOT RETURN.

I THANK YOU TOO IF YOU A

MEMBER OF THE "700 CLUB" OVER TO

WENDY.

WE HAVE GIVEN YOU A SNEAK

PEEK AT "LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE"

IT'S INCREDIBLE.

DON'T TAKE OUR WORD BUT LISTEN

TO THIS VIEWER.

I THINK THAT LIFE BEYOND THE

GRAVE WOULD HELP ANYONE THAT

DOUBTS THE REALITY OF HEAVEN AND

HELL.

THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR

YOU TO SEE INSIDE A PERSONAL

FORGIVENESS.

I WAS REMINDED WHILE WATCHING

THE DVD THAT PRAYER IS A WAY AND

NO SIN CANNOT BE FORGIVEN.

GOD LOVES US MORE THAN YOU KNOW.

IT'S A GLORIOUS DAY, AND

PEOPLE ARE RESPONDING,

PENNSYLVANIA, CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE,

ALL OF THAT GOES INTO THIS

CHALLENGE.

FANTASTIC.

WE HAVE A $250,000 CHALLENGE AND

YOU GAVE 369.

THESE WORDS FROM PSALM 13, I

WILL SING TO THE LORD BECAUSE

HE'S DEALT WITH ME.

FROM ALL OF US, GOD BLESS YOU
