GORDAN: FOR A FORMER, DROUGHT

OR HAIL CAN MEAN CROP FAILURE.

JENNIFER'S FARM HAD BOTH IN THE

SAME SUMMER.

SHE STILL TURNED A PROFIT.

REPORTER: WHEN JENNIFER POLAR

INHERITED THE FAMILY FARM, IT

CAME WITH AN 80-YEAR HISTORY OF

ABUNDANCE.

THERE WAS NEVER A CROP FAIR

EVEN EVEN IT WAS TOO WET.

TERRY: FARM MANAGER DAVE

RICE CALLED WITH BAD NEWS.

UNLESS WE HAD RAIN DURING

POLLINATION, WE WERE GOING TO

HAVE DEVASTATING RESULTS.

I WAS SHOCKED, 80 YEARS.

DEAR LORD.

TERRY: JENNIFER PRAYED AND

THE CLOUDS OPENED.

IT WAS HAILING AND A FARMER'S

WORST NIGHTMARE.

IF IT IS DROUGHT AND HELL THERE

WILL BE NOTHING.

TERRY: SHE PRAYED AGAIN.

OH LORD, PLEASE, HELP ME.

HELP MY LAND.

ANY PROFIT YOU GIVE, I WILL GIVE

IT ALL TO "700 CLUB." I SPELLED

IT OUT SPECIFICALLY "700 CLUB."

TERRY: THE FARM LAND WAS A

FEW HOURS FROM HOME.

FOR MONTHS JENNIFER HAD NO IDEA

HOW THE CROP WAS DOING.

WHEN DAVE CALLED, SHE BRACED

HERSELF FOR THE WORST.

YOU HAD A SUCCESSFUL CROP.

I AM LIKE SAY THAT AGAIN, I

DON'T BELIEVE THIS.

[LAUGHTER].

AT THAT POINT I KNEW I WAS GOING

TO BE ABLE TO WRITE A BIG CHECK

TO CBN.

TERRY: IT TURNED OUT THE

HAILSTORM STOPPED FIVE MILES

SHORT OF JENNIFER'S FARM.

EVEN THOUGH IT BARELY SPRINKLED,

THEY HARVESTED A BUMPER CROP OF

CORN.

IT IS REMARKABLE.

IT IS A MIRACLE.

WHEN DAVE SEPTEMBER THE CHECK

IN SEPTEMBER, OVER $20,000.

TERRY: JUST DAYS BEFORE

JENNIFER WROTE THE CHECK, A

PIECE OF MEDICAL EQUIPMENT BROKE

DOWN IN UKRAINE, JENNIFER'S

DONATION REPLACED IT WITH A

BETTER PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.

I WROTE JENNIFER A LATER OF

THANKS.

DEAR, JENNIFER, YOUR GIFT

TOUCHED THE LIVES --.

THOUSANDS OF POOR FAMILIES

AND CHILDREN TREATED THERE FREE

OF CHARGE.

A MAJOR NEED FILLED IN UKRAINE

FROM A CROP FAILURE THAT DIDN'T

HAPPEN.

TERRY: TODAY SHE IS PASSING

ON STORIES ABOUT THE FAMILY FARM

TO HER GRANDCHILDREN.

NOW I CAN SAY IT AND MEAN IT,

FOR 80 YEARS THE CROP HAS NEVER

FAILED IN THE GOOD AND BAD

WEATHER.

THE BIBLE IS CLEAR WE ARE TO

GIVE GOD OUR FIRST FRUITS.

FIRST CHECK IS TO THE KINGDOM,

SMALL OR BIG, GOD CAN MULTIPLY.

HE IS GOD, OUR PROVIDER, I AM

EAGER TO WRITE THE FIRST CHECK

TO SAY THANK YOU.

GORDAN: VERSE FROM THE BIBLE

JENNIFER WAS QUOTING, HONOR THE

LORD WITH YOUR POSSESSIONS,

FIRST FRUITS OF ALL YOUR

INCREASE, SO YOUR BARNS WILL BE

FILLED WITH PLENTY AND VATS WILL

OVERFLOW WITH NEW WINE.

JENNIFER LEARNED THE NEW SECRET,

IF YOU HONOR GOD WITH THE FIRST

FRUITS, HE'LL BE SPECIFIC WITH

WHAT HE WANTS YOU TO DO.

HE'LL TELL YOU.

IF YOU HONOR HIM, HE'LL PROVIDE.

HE'LL PROVIDE MIRACULOUSLY.

WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

DROUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A DOWN

ECONOMY, GOD CAN PROVIDE FOR HIS

CHILDREN.

HE KNOWS HOW TO DO IT.

WHAT IS HE LOOKING FOR?

FOR YOU TO HONOR HIM, TO SAY I

TRUST YOU.

I TRUST YOU WITH MY MONEY.

I TRUST YOU WITH MY CROPS AND

FIRST FRUITS AND HONOR YOU WITH

THEM.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, THEN YOU GET

THE CROPS TODAY GEORGE AND IRENE

MEDIALLY RUN A SUCCESSFUL

BUSINESS.

IN THEIR SPARE TIME THEY SET UP

A FOOD BANK.

WASN'T LONG SINCE THEY HAD TO

GET INTO THE FOOD BANK WHEN

GEORGE WAS IN PRISON.

GEORGE CARES ABOUT GIVING

MONEY AWAY.

MONEY IS A TOOL.

MONEY IS NOT MY GOD.

GOD HAS GIVEN US ACCESS THAT WE

CAN SOW INTO LIVES OF OTHER

PEOPLE.

QUITE A CHANGE FOR A MAN THAT

WAS ONCE A DRUG ADDICTED

CRIMINAL.

I MADE MONEY OFF THE BACKS OF

ADDICTED PEOPLE.

HE WAS A MESS.

I PRAYED THIS WOULD BE A

DIFFERENT.

ONLY SOURCE OF INCOME WAS A

SMALL TOW TRUCK.

IRENE TOOK THE WHEEL WHEN GEORGE

WAS IN JAIL.

I WOULD GET IN THE TOW TRUCK

AND GO GET CARS.

SHE WAITED IN THE FOOD BANK

LINE.

MY BUDGET WAS 30 BUCKS A

MONTH.

IN 2012, GEORGE WAS ARRESTED

FOR THE LAST TIME.

I COULDN'T STAND TO LOOK AT

MYSELF IN THE MIRROR.

BACK IN PRISON HIS LIFE

CHANGED.

SOMEBODY LEFT A BIBLE TRACK

ON THE FLOOR OF THE PRISON.

OPENED THE BIBLE UP AND GOD

REMINDED ME OF THE CROOKED

THINGS AND KNEW MY SOUL WAS IN

JEOPARDY AND CRIED OUT TO GOD.

GEORGE'S NEXT STEP FOLLOWED A

MESSAGE ACT GIVING TO OTHERS.

I WOULD GET MY COMMISSARY AND

GIVE IT AWAY TO OTHERS THAT

DIDN'T HAVE HAVE ANYTHING.

IT WAS ASTONISHING TO IRENE.

YOU KNOW, IRENE, THE LORD

WANTS ME TO GIVE THIS TO A MAN.

I THOUGHT AS LONG AS HE IS BEING

DIRECTED BY GOD, I DON'T HAVE A

PROBLEM.

I COULD TRUST HIM.

GEORGE SAYS HE RECEIVED A

PLAN FROM THE LORD.

HE WOULD GIVE ME AN INCOME

PRODUCING ASSET I COULD USE AS A

RESOURCE TO HELP PEOPLE.

TWO YEARS LATER, GEORGE

LAUNCHED MOTAL MOVERS, THE

COMPANY RAISED A $500,000 PROFIT

THE FIRST YEAR.

HE BUILT A CHURCH COMPLETE WITH

A FOOD BANK AND CLOTHES FOR THE

NEEDY.

WHEN THEIR PROFITS INCREASED, SO

DID THEIR GIVING.

LAST YEAR 40% OF PROFITS WENT TO

HELP OTHERS, THAT IS HEFTY SINCE

LAST YEAR PROFITS WERE NINE

MILLION DOLLARS.

HE HAS ALLOWED ME AND MY WIFE

TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE.

WE SPEND A LOT OF MONEY DOING

THAT.

I DON'T CARE IF IT TOOK A

MILLION DOLLARS TO SAVE ONE

SOUL.

THAT SOUL IS WORTH A MILLION

DOLLARS.

I WAS GREEDY FOR MONEY.

GOD BROKE THAT SPIRIT OF GREED

AND REPLACED IT WITH A SPIRIT OF

GENEROSITY.

GORDAN: WHAT AN INCREDIBLE

STORY AND INCREDIBLE TURN OVER.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.

GEORGE AND IRENE LEARN, FOR GOD

SO LOVED THE WORLD, HE GAVE HIS

ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, GAVE WHAT WAS

MOST PRECIOUS SO YOU AND I COULD

TURN AROUND AND BE JUST LIKE

GEORGE, FROM A LIFE OF CRIME TO

LIFE OF GENEROSITY.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET THERE?

TAKES THE SAME STEPS WHERE YOU

GET RIGHT WITH GOD AND DO IT

FIRST.

HUMBLE YOURSELF, PRAY, SAY LORD,

I AM SORRY FOR THE THINGS I HAVE

DONE WRONG, CAN YOU COME INTO MY

HEART?

CAN YOU FORGIVE ME?

CAN YOU SET ME FREE?

WHEN IT HAPPENS, OBEY HIM IN

WHAT HE TELLS YOU TO DO.

IF HE TELLS YOU TO GIVE, HERE

YOU HAVE GEORGE GIVING AWAY

CARS.

GEORGE TRUSTED HIM.

HE SAID I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU

AN INCOME PRODUCING ASSET.

INCOME IS INCREDIBLE.

THOUSANDS ARE BLESSED BY IT.

IMAGINE WHERE IT WILL BE 10-20

YEARS FROM NOW AS THEY CONTINUE

THIS LIFE OF GENEROSITY.

THEY ARE GOING TO FULFILL THIS

WORD FROM THE BIBLE, IT IS

POSSIBLE TO GIVE AWAY AND GET

RICHER AND HOLD ON TOO TIGHTLY,

YES THE LIBERAL MAN SHALL BE

RICH BY WATERING OTHERS, HE

WATERS HIMSELF.

GEORGE AND IRENE LIVED A LIFE OF

GENEROSITY AND REAPING THE

BENEFITS OF THAT VERSE FROM THE

BIBLE.

IF I CAN GET A DRUM ROLL,

EXITING CBN PARTNERS WANT TO

CHALLENGE OTHERS TO GIVE, FOR

THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, THEY'LL

MATCH YOUR GIFT DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR OF THE $75,000.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING, FOR

MULTIPLICATION AND INCREASE.

THE INCREASE THAT COMES FROM

YOU, 30, 60, 100 FOLD.

BLESS IT NOW.

FOR THOSE WATCHING, SPEAK TO

THEM.

ENCOURAGE THEM, WE ASK IT ALL IN

JESUS' NAME AMEN.

TERRY: AMEN.

POWER.

GORDAN: WHEN CYNTHIA LOST HER

JOB, SHE WAS OUT OF WORK SEVEN

MONTHS.

IN ALL THAT TIME SHE NEVER

MISSED A CAR OR MORTGAGE

PAYMENT.

HERE IS HOW.

I WASN'T IN CONTROL OF MY

MONEY, MY MONEY WAS IN CONTROL

OF ME.

I WORKED HARD FOR MY MONEY.

THOSE VOICES TOLD ME I DESERVED

IT.

THOSE ARE THE PRINCIPLES

ADOPTED AS A YOUNG CAREER WOMAN.

I GOT DIFFERENT CARS EVERY

TWO YEARS.

A LOT OF MONEY WENT TO BILLS

AND CREDITORS.

I HAD TO WRITE EVERY PENNY I

WANTED TO SPEND.

IF ANYTHING CAME IN $2 OVER I

WAS GOING TO BE IN A BIND.

SHE STARTED WATCHING "700

CLUB." CYNTHIA DECIDED TO BECOME

A CBN PARTNER.

I REMEMBER WRITING THAT FIRST

CHECK.

I THOUGHT ANGELS WERE GOING TO

BE SINGING.

IT WAS A HUGE STEP.

CYNTHIA DIDN'T HAVE A HANDLE

ON SPENDING, THOUGH, HER DEBT

GREW TO $30,000.

AS LONG AS YOU CAN PAY THAT

MONTHLY PAYMENT IT WAS GOOD BUT

IT WASN'T GOOD.

SOON SHE LOST HER JOB AND SHE

HAD TO DEPEND ON GOD.

IT WAS STRESSFUL.

I SAID GOD, I NEED YOUR HELP.

MY MORTGAGE PAYMENT WAS DRAFTING

THE NEXT DAY.

I HAD $1.87.

SHE RECEIVED A CREDIT CARD.

IN A PERMANENT MARKER I WROTE

VOID ON THE CHECK.

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW THAT

MORTGAGE PAYMENT DRAFTED.

SHE BELIEVES GOD TOLD HER TO

KEEP GIVING.

SPECIFIC INSTRUCTION WAS TO

CONTINUE GIVING THE SAME AMOUNT

AS WHEN I HAD A JOB.

DURING SEVEN MONTHS, NEVER

MISSED A CAR AND HOUSE PAYMENT.

GOD WAS FAITHFUL.

CYNTHIA LANDED A JOB AND GOD

STARTED SHOWING HER WAYS, ONE

WAS TO GIVE MORE.

HE ASKED ME TO DOUBLE MY

GIVEING TO CBN I SAID DOUBLE MY

GIFT?

$20 WAS A STRETCH, $40 WAS WOW.

CYNTHIA INCREASED GIVING AND

PAID OFF HER DEBT.

SHE IS NOW A MEMBER OF THE

CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE.

GOD GETS 10%, 90% IS MINE.

MY PHILOSOPHY IS IT IS ALL HIS.

I CAN'T GO WRONG HAVING

EVERYTHING IN HIS HANDS.

WHEN I GIVE IT TO GOD, HE IS

GOING TO DO SO MUCH MORE THAN I

COULD EVER IMAGINE.

THEN HE BLESSES ME BACK ALONG

THE WAY.

GORDAN: CYNTHIA HAS LEARNED

THE SECRET OF GENEROSITY.

HERE IT IS FROM THE BIBLE, GIVE

AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU,

GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN,

SHAKEN TOGETHER AND RUNNING OVER

POURED INTO YOUR LAP, WITH THE

MEASURE YOU USE, IT WILL BE

MEASURED TO YOU.

CYNTHIA ADOPTED A LARGE MEASURE.

SHE SAID I AM GOING TO COUNT IT

ALL HIS.

I KNOW IT IS IN GOOD HANDS, YOU

CAN TRUST HIM WITH YOUR MONEY,

YOUR LIFE, FAMILY, WITH

EVERYTHING.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GET IT

STRAIGHT, IF YOU DO THAT, THEN

YOU GET INTO ONE OF THE GREAT

PRINCIPLES OF THE UNIVERSE, WE

CALL IT THE LAW OF RECIPROCITY.

GIVE, YOU PUT IT IN MOTION, AND

IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU.

CALL US, 1-800-759-0700.

SAY YES, I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

AS A REAL ESTATE AGENT,

KATHERINE LOST HALF HER INCOME

WHEN THE HOUSING MASHT CRASHED.

WITH TWO CHILDREN TO SUPPORT

THIS MOTHER WAS RELYING ON

CREDIT AND DROWNING IN DEBT.

KATHERINE IS A REAL ESTATE

AGENT.

I LOVE HELPING EVERYONE THAT

FIRST TIME HOME BUYER IS SO

EXCITED.

TEN YEARS AGO KATHERINE

BECAME A SINGLE MOTHER.

IT WAS HARD TO MAKE A WHOLE NEW

LIFE FOR HERSELF AND BOYS, BOBBY

AND COLLIN.

I NEVER SAW MYSELF IN A

SITUATION FACING LIFE ALONE.

IT WAS VERY, VERY SCARY.

IN 2007 WHEN THE HOUSING

MARKET CRASHED, KATHERINE SAW

HER INCOME CUT IN HALF.

SHE HAD TO WIPE OUT HER SAVINGS

JUST TO PAY THE BILLS.

KATHERINE TURNED INTO CREDIT

CARDS RACKING UP MORE THAN

$20,000.

I WAS BUYING GROCERIES ON

CREDIT CARDS.

KATHERINE AND BOYS WENT TO

CHURCH EVEN DURING THE TOUGH

TIMES.

SHE PRAYED AND STARTED WATCHING

"700 CLUB.."

EVEN IN A TIME OF NEED, I SAW

PEOPLE GO OVER AND BEYOND, I

THOUGHT I COULD DO AND SHOW HIS

PROMISES LIKE HE HAD FOR OTHERS.

KATHERINE CONTINUES TO GO TO

CHURCH AND JOINED "700 CLUB.."

IT WAS AMAZING GOD WOULD COME

THROUGH.

ONE YEAR LATER, KATHERINE

INCREASED GIVING TO "THE 700

CLUB" GOLD LEVEL.

SOON AFTER SHE SOLD A LISTING

THAT GAVE HER THE BIGGEST

COMMISSION SHE EVER MADE, SHE

EARNED $25,000 MORE THAN THE

YEAR BEFORE.

KATHERINE'S YOUNGER SON COLLIN

BELIEVES IN TITHING AND SEEN GOD

REWARD HIS OBEDIENCE.

WHEN I GOT MY FIRST JOB MOM

SAID ARE YOU GOING TO TITHE?

I SAID OF COURSE.

IT WAS 50 BUCKS BUT I CAN'T

MIND.

I WAS VERY PROUD.

KATHERINE KNOWS WHEN SHE IS

FAITHFUL TO GIVE, GOD IS

FAITHFUL TO KEEP HIS PROMISES.

I LEARNED TO HAVE A DEEPER

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND TRUST

HIM FOR ALL MY NEEDS THAT HE IS

MY SOURCE NOT REAL ESTATE, BUT

THAT GOD IS MY SOURCE.

GORDAN: HERE ARE THE WORDS OF

JESUS: DON'T WORRY ABOUT HAVING

ENOUGH FOOD OR DRINK OR

CLOTHING.

YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER KNOWS YOUR

NEEDS AND GIVE YOU WHAT YOU NEED

DAY-TO-DAY IF YOU LIVE FOR HIM

AND MAKE THE KINGDOM OF GOD YOUR

PRIMARY CONCERN.

KATHERINE LEARNED THAT AND

WATCHING STORIES ON THIS SHOW

THAT ENCOURAGED HER.

GO OVER AND ABOVE EVEN IN A TIME

OF NEED AND SEE WHAT GOD CAN DO.

GORDAN: IN HER CHINESE

TAKING IN CHINESE CHILDREN.

ONE DAY SHE FOUND A CHILD ON HER

DOORSTEP THAT NEEDED MORE HELP.

FOR 14 YEARS, U MOW HAS TAKEN

CARE OF CHILDREN.

BUT THIS DAY A BABY WAS LEFT

WITH A CLEFT LIP AND PALATE.

I HAD NEVER SEEN ANYTHING

LIKE IT BEFORE.

SHE COULDN'T THINK OF AN

APPROPRIATE NAME.

I ALWAYS NAMED THEM SOMETHING

THEY COULD GROW INTO.

SHE NEEDED A SURGERY.

I COULDN'T AFFORD THAT.

U MOW FEARED THE CHILD WOULD

DIE YOUNG.

THE BABY HAD A HARD TIME EATING

AND DRINKING BECAUSE OF HER

CLEFT LIP AND UNABLE TO DEVELOP.

SHE CRIED EVERY TIME I GAVE

HER A BOTTLE.

MILK POURED OUT OF HER NOSE AND

TURNED GRAY.

I WAS AFRAID SHE WOULD CHOKE TO

DIE.

I HAVE LOST BABIES BEFORE.

I IT BREAKS MY HEARD.

I DIDN'T WANT THIS BABY TO DIE.

U MOW PRAYED FOR HELP.

I PRAYED SOMETIMES FOUR AND

FIVE HOURS.

I BELIEVED THE LORD WOULD SAVE

HER.

HER GRANDPARENTS STRUGGLED ON

THEIR FARM WITH OLD EQUIPMENT.

WE WERE DOING EVERYTHING WE

COULD.

IT WAS HARD TO TAKE CARE OF

BLESSY ON OUR INCOME.

I LOVED TO STUDY.

I COULDN'T GO TO SCHOOL BECAUSE

IT.

NEW BLESSY AND GRANDPARENTS

ASKED HINDU GODS FOR CHANGE.

NOTHING CHANGED.

A PASTOR VISITED THE HOME, THEY

TOLD PARENTS ABOUT THE FREE

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM CALLED VITA

JODI.

THEY WANTED BLESSY TO GET A GOOD

EDUCATION.

WHEN I GOT THERE, THEY GAVE

ME ALL MY SCHOOL SUPPLIES AND

PAID MY TUITION FEES SO I COULD

GO BACK TO SCHOOL.

EVERY MORNING THEY GAVE ME

BREAKFAST.

I AM SO HAPPY I CAN STUDY AGAIN.

SHE WAS HELPED WITH HER HOME

WORK AND ENJOYED SINGING,

DANCING AND MOST IMPORTANTLY

LEARNING ABOUT A FATHER THAT

WOULD NEVER LEAVE HER.

I LEARNED GOD IS OUR FATHER

IN HEAVEN.

MY FAMILY AND I WENT TO CHURCH.

OUR LORD AND SAVIOR.

WE ALSO GAVE BLESSY'S FAMILY

WHAT THEY NEEDED TO EARN MORE

MONEY.

SCHOOL BAG, CLOTHES, TUITIONS

AND HELPED MY GRANDPARENTS AND

WE ENJOYED GOING TO CHURCH.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WHAT WOULD MAKE A BUDDHIST MONK

AND ENTIRE FAMILY CONVERT TO

CHRISTIANITY?

IT STARTED WITH A CHILD THAT

COULDN'T WALK AND A MOTHER

PRAYING.

AT TWO AND A HALF YEARS OLD

THIS BABY WAS BORN WITH CEREBRAL

PALSY AND COULD BARELY ROLL

OVER.

WHEN SHE WAS JUST A BABY, I

TOOK HER EVERYWHERE TO TRY TO

GET HELP.

TO BUDDHIST MONKS AND HOSPITALS.

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED INCREASELY.

LIFE SEEMED HOPELESS.

A TEAM OF DOCTORS FROM AN

ORGANIZATION CALLED REACHING THE

LIGHT TRAVELED 12 HOURS BY TRAIN

FROM CAPITOL CITY TO REMOTE

TOWN.

SHE WAS TOLD SHE COULD RECEIVE

FREE THERAPY.

THE PROGRAM CONSISTS

OF THERAPY

AT THE CENTER, TEACHING THEM

EXERCISES AND FOLLOW UP VISITS

AT THE CENTER.

THE MOST SPECIAL PART OF THE

PROGRAM, IS THAT EVERY SESSION

FOCUSES ON JESUS CHRIST.

EACH TIME THEY CAME TO THE

CENTER, THE STAFF PRAYED FOR

THEM.

IT WAS THE FIRST TIME THEY EVER

HEARD ABOUT JESUS.

I HAD NO IDEA ABOUT GOD.

I CRIED OUT, ARE YOU REAL?

ARE YOU REAL?

IF YOU ARE REAL,

PLEASE HEAL MY

DAUGHTER.

DID YOU

BEGIN

TO

SEE

HER

IMPROVE?

OH YES, IT WAS REALLY

AMAZING.

FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS,

SHE PRAYED TO GOD EVERYDAY

BEFORE THERAPY.

THEY RED A BIBLE THE STAFF HAD

GIVEN HER.

WHEN THEY WERE IN THE CITY, THEY

ATTENDED A CHURCH NEAR THE

CENTER, EVEN THOUGH

HER

FATHER

WAS A BUDDHIST MONK, SHE THREW

HER BUDDHIST IDOLS IN THE FIRE.

I LOVE TO SHARE THE GOSPEL.

SHE STARTED A BIBLE STUDY.

SO FAR 30 PEOPLE HAVE GIVEN

THEIR LIVES TO CHRIST.

ONE OF THEM EVEN STARTED A HOME

CHURCH IN ANOTHER VILLAGE.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE WILL SAY SHE

IS THE DAUGHTER OF A MONK, HOW

CAN SHE SHARE ABOUT JESUS TO

OTHERS?

THAT DOES NOT MATTER TO ME.

I KNOW HE IS REAL.

I WILL JUST KEEP FOLLOWING HIM.

BECAUSE OF THIS OUTREACH, HER

FATHER BECAME A CHRISTIAN, AS

WELL AS HER HUSBAND, MOTHER, AND

FOUR OF HER FIVE SISTERS.

BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP AND GOD'S

GRACE.

IUSHIMA WHO COULDN'T SIT UP ON

HER OWN IS NOW WALKING.

THESE ARE HER FIRST STEPS TO A

BRIGHTER FUTURE AND A BRIGHTER

JOURNEY WITH JESUS CHRIST.

T

TAKE

CARE OF THE

CHILDREN.

IT HURTS TO REMEMBER IT.

THEN A EARTHQUAKE HIT

GUATEMALA AND DESTROYED THE

HOUSE.

I STARTED CRYING AND I WAS

ALONE WITH MY KIDS.

THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT.

IT WAS HARD.

I SAID MOM, WHERE ARE WE GOING

TO LIVE NOW?

THE SAME DAY THE QUAKE HIT,

OPERATION BLESSING BROUGHT

EMERGENCY FOOD, WATER
