The 700 Club - May 22, 2013

A car wash business seemed like a good investment-but it wasn’t. See what Raymond and Suzanne Berg did that gave them a new successful business and allowed them to pay off their debt. Read Transcript


Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

PEOPLE IN MOORE, OKLAHOMA,

ARE STARTING TO CLEAN UP AND

REBUILD, AFTER BEING HIT BY

A TORNADO MORE POWERFUL THAN

THE ATOMIC BOMB THAT

LEVELLED HER HIROSHIMA.

Terry: AS JOHN JESSUP

REPORTS, THOUGH, THERE ARE

ARE ALREADY SIGNS OF

RECOVERY.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN

TWO DAYS SINCE THE TWISTER

TURNED THE CITY OF MOORE UP

SIDE DOWN, EMOTIONS STILL

RUN HIGH.

I BALLED ALL MORNING, AND

NOW I'M ON THE UPSIDE.

Reporter: HARDER,

STILL, BECAUSE THE LOSS FROM

THE F-5 TORNADO PROVED MORE

COSTLY.

Reporter: HOW ARE YOUR

NEIGHBORS?

SOME DIDN'T MAKE IT.

SOME ARE IN HOSPITAL.

Reporter: WHILE THE

CITY CORDONED OFF AREAS TO

KEEP PEOPLE SAFE, PEOPLE

LIKE BETH RETURNED TO THEIR

HOMES.

THE SEARCH MADE MORE

DIFFICULT BECAUSE NOT

EVERYTHING IN BETH'S HOME

BELONGS TO HER, LIKE THE

JEEP SITTING RIGHT IN THE

MIDDLE OF WHAT USED TO BE

HER LIVING ROOM.

Reporter: THAT IS NOT

EVEN HER CAR?

UH-UH.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE THAT CAME

FROM.

Reporter: HOW ABOUT THE

BLUE ONE?

THAT IS IS MINE.

Reporter: SHE TOOK

SHELTER IN A FRIEND'S PLACE,

BUT AFTER THE STORM CLEARED,

SHE WONDERED IF SHE COULD

MAKE IT OUT ALIVE.

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO

GET OUT OF HERE.

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO OPEN

THIS DOOR.

SHE SAID SHE WAS PUSHING AND

PUSHING AND PUSHING, AND SHE

SAID SHE GOT IT OPEN JUST

ENOUGH TO BARELY CRAWL OUT.

Reporter: EMERGENCY

CREWS HAVE CHECKED DAMAGED

PROPERTY AT LEAST THREE

TIMES.

WITH EACH PASSING DAY, THE

HUNT FOR POSSIBLE SURVIVORS

GROWS DIM, BUT STILL THERE

ARE STORIES OF HOPE.

Reporter: THIS IS

BRIARWOOD ELEMENTARY.

WHILE THE SCHOOL IS

DEMOLISHED, AMAZINGLY, ALL

OF THE STUDENTS THAT WERE

INSIDE MADE IT OUT ALIVE.

SO NOW THIS COMMUNITY THAT

SURVIVED TRAGEDY BEFORE

SHARES IN GRIEF ONCE AGAIN,

BUT THEY'RE BOUND BY THEIR

UNWAVERING GRIEF TO

OVERCOME.

I LOVE AMERICA, AND WE'RE

STRONG.

Reporter: JOHN JESSUP,

CBN NEWS, MOORE, OKLAHOMA.

Gordon: YOU JUST ADMIRE

THE RESILIENCE OF THE HUMAN

SPIRIT, IN THE FACE OF

DISASTER, TO SAY WE'RE GOING

TO GO ON.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS ON

THE SCENE IN OKLAHOMA WITH

FOOD AND SUPPLIES FOR THE

VICTIMS OF THIS DEVASTATING

TRAGEDY.

MICHELLE WILSON BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Reporter: THE FIRST OF

"OPERATION BLESSING'S"

DISASTER RELIEF TRUCKS

ARRIVE IN MOORE, OKLAHOMA ON

TUESDAY, FILLED WITH FOOD,

WATER, AND OTHER SUPPLIES.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS IS

ONE OF THE FIRST RESPONDERS

WITH MUCH-NEEDED DISASTER

RELIEF FOR THOSE DIRECTLY

AFFECTED BY OKLAHOMA'S MOST

DEADLY TORNADOES.

IT WAS A SIGHT.

I HAD TO TAKE A DEEP BREATH

AND REGAIN MY COMPOSURE.

Reporter: THIS IS MARK,

WHO TOLD US THAT HIS HOME

WAS NEARLY DESTROYED.

MY WHOLE FENCE IS GONE

OVER THERE, YOU CAN SEE.

Reporter: HE IS

THANKFUL HE AND HIS FAMILY

SURVIVED.

A LOT OF MY FRIENDS'

HOMES ARE TOTALLED.

SEEING NOTHING LEFT BY A

SLAB OR BRICKS.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING'S" PHIL

HOREN WAS ON THE SCENE TO AS

ASSESS THE DAMAGE.

THERE ARE LOT OF PEOPLE

HERE WITH DISABILITIES AND

WHO HAVE NO ONE ELSE TO HELP

THEM.

WE'RE GOING TO SEEK THOSE

PEOPLE OUT, THE MOST

VULNERABLE.

THEY'RE ON THE TOP OF OUR

LIST.

34,000 POUNDS OF FOOD,

JUST THINGS WE CAN HELP

THESE FAMILIES WITH.

YOU'VE SEEN OTHER

DEVASTATION ON THE

TELEVISION, BUT THERE ARE

HOMES STILL STAND, BUT THERE

IS WIDESPREAD POWER

OUTAGES.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

PARTNERING WITH HIGHLAND

BAPTIST CHURCH, WHICH IS IN

THE HEART OF THE COMMUNITY.

IT IS PART OF THE BODY OF

CHRIST TO BE ABLE TO SHARE

TOGETHER AND LINK ARMS

TOGETHER AND JUST DO WHAT HE

CALLED US TO DO, LOVE ON

PEOPLE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

Gordon: WHEN DISASTERS

STRIKE, WE WANT TO STRIKE

BACK WITH LOVE AND

COMPASSION AND VERY TANGIBLE

HELP IN THEIR TIME OF NEED.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

IT, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

A PORTION OF EVERY GIFT GOES

INTO THE WORK OF "OPERATION

BLESSING" TO HELP THOSE IN

NEED.

AND IF YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER

AND BE PART OF THE RELIEF

EFFORT, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO

IS GO TO ob.org, AND CLICK

ON THE VOLUNTEER BUTTON, AND

THERE IS A WAY YOU CAN SIGN

UP.

DO IT NOW, CALL THAT NUMBER,

1-800-759-0700.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: WHEN THEIR

COMPANY FAILED, RAYMOND AND

SUSANNE HAD A HARD TIME

PAYING THEIR BILLS, UNTIL

THEY GOT SOME ADVICE FROM A

FAMILY FRIEND.

Reporter: CAR WASHING

IN MINNESOTA IS VERY

IMPORTANT FOR INDIVIDUALS

WHO HAVE NICE VEHICLES, OF

COURSE, AND WANT TO KEEP

THEM IN GOOD CONDITION.

Reporter: SCOTT BROKER

RAYMOND BURR WAS COUNTING ON

THE POPULARITY OF CAR

WASHING WHEN HE BOUGHT A CAR

WASHING COMPANY.

HIS HOPES FOR LARGE PROFITS

NEVER MATERIALIZED.

AS HIS REVENUES DROPPED, HIS

ANXIETY SOARED.

3 A.M. WAKEUPS WERE

COMMON.

I COULDN'T PAY SOME BILLS

AND HAD TO GET EXTENSIONS ON

COMMITMENTS.

Reporter: AND THE

CREATORS WER CREDITORS WERE

CALLING.

I WAS PRAYING, LORD, WILL

YOU HELP ME FIND NEW

CAPITAL.

WILL YOU HELP ME FIND NEW

PARTNERS, AND IT WASN'T

BEING ANSWERED.

Reporter: HIS WIFE,

SUSANNE, WAS A FLIGHT

ATTENDANT, BUT HER SALARY

ALONE WASN'T PAYING THE

BILLS.

SO THEY CONSIDERED STOPPING

THEIR TITHE.

MY GIRLFRIEND SAID TO ME,

ARE YOU TITHING?

AND I SAID, GAIL, WE CANNOT

AFFORD TO TITHE.

Reporter: GAIL SHOWED

SUSANNE SCRIPTURES ABOUT HOW

GIVING WAS IMPORTANT.

SO THE BIRDS CHANGED THEIR

MIND AND CONTINUED TO

TITHE.

THE A PASSAGE IN THE BIBLE

CONFIRMED THEY WERE DOING

THE RIGHT THING.

DO NOT BE CONCERNED ABOUT

TOMORROW FOR TODAY HAS

ENOUGH TROUBLES OF ITS OWN.

IT LODGED IN MY HEART.

IF YOU ARE MY LORD AND

YOU'RE THE LORD OF THE

UNIVERSE, I TRUST YOU WITH

EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE.

Reporter: AND THAT

MEANT TRUSTING GOD WHEN HE

SOLD THE CAR WASH COMPANY.

HE USED HIS STOCKBROKER

BACKGROUND TO START A

FINANCIAL BUILDING

BUSINESS.

HIS GOAL WAS TO PAY OFF HIS

DEBT AS SOON AS HE BUILT HIS

CLIENTELE.

HE DID IT MORE QUICKLY THAN

HE THOUGHT POSSIBLE.

TO NOT KNOWING HOW I

COULD PAY IT TO SUDDENLY

HAVING $45,000 TO PAY OFF MY

DEBT.

IT WAS ONLY FROM THE LORD.

I DO NOT TAKE ANY CREDIT FOR

THE ABILITY TO EXPAND MY

BUSINESS THAT QUICKLY.

Reporter: THE BIRDS

FEEL GOD SAW THEM THROUGH

THEIR FINANCIAL STORM

BECAUSE THEY WERE FAITHFUL

TO TITHE, EVEN WHEN THEY

THOUGHT THEY COULDN'T.

AND THEY ARE ALSO CBN

PARTNERS, AND GOD CONTINUES

TO BLESS THEIR BUSINESS.

IF YOU TRUST IN THE LORD,

HE WILL SEE YOU THROUGH, HE

WILL PROVIDE FOR YOU.

HE DID FOR ME, HE DID IT FOR

US.

Gordon: AND HE'LL DO IT

FOR YOU.

WHAT HAPPENED TO RAYMOND CAN

HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU JUST

TRUST HIM.

HERE IS THE PLEA, AND IT IS

FROM THE BIBLE, FROM THE

BOOK OF ISAIAH, AND IT IS

FROM GOD: "IF YOU WILL ONLY

OBEY ME AND LET ME HELP YOU,

THEN YOU WILL HAVE PLENTY."

AND RAYMOND LEARNED THAT.

HE SAID, OKAY, I'M GOING TO

OBEY GOD.

I'M GOING TO OBEY GOD WITH

WHAT HE TELLS ME TO DO.

HE IS GOD OF ALL OF THE

UNIVERSE, AND HE IS ABLE TO

PROVIDE FOR HIS CHILDREN.

WHAT IS HE LOOKING FOR?

HE IS LOOKING FOR US TO OBEY

HIM AND TRUST HIM, AND THEN

HE WILL HELP US.

AS AN INSURANCE BROKER,

ERNEST SESSION MADE A LIVING

HELPING PEOPLE MANAGE THEIR

MONEY.

BUT WHEN IT CAME TO HIS OWN

FINANCES, ERNEST WASN'T

EXACTLY TAKING HIS OWN

ADVICE.

Reporter: ERNEST

SESSION IS A SUCCESSFUL

INSURANCE FINANCIAL

PLANNER.

BUT IN THE EARLY YEARS OF

HIS MARRIAGE, HE NEEDED SOME

FINANCIAL HELP HIMSELF.

I FELT LIKE I HAD HOLES

IN MY POCKET, QUITE

FRANKLY.

IT SEEMED LIKE I COULDN'T

HOLD ON TO MONEY.

AND SOMETHING WOULD ALWAYS

COME UP.

THERE WERE MANY NIGHTS WHEN

I WOKE UP, AND MY WIFE WAS

STILL ASLEEP, AND I WORRIED

ABOUT HOW AM I GOING TO PAY

THE BILLS.

Reporter: MARGARET

SUGGESTED THAT TITHING WAS

THE ANSWER TO THE COUPLE'S

PROBLEMS, BUT ERNEST DIDN'T

AGREE.

WE WERE ALREADY

STRUGGLING.

OUR BIGGEST TREAT WAS ONCE A

MONTH TO GO TO

TOMcDONALD'S, AND THAT WAS

A STRUGGLE.

SO IT DIDN'T MAKE SENSE FOR

ME TO GIVE AWAY 10% OF MY

INCOME.

Reporter: MARGARET

PRAYED THAT ERNEST WOULD

CHANGE HIS MIND.

AFTER HEARING MANY MESSAGES

FROM HIS PASTOR, HE CHANGED

HIS MIND.

I THOUGHT, LET ME TRY IT

GOD'S WAY TO SEE IF IT

WORKS.

Reporter: WHEN THEY

STARTED IMMEDIATELY TITHING

ON THEIR INCOME, THEY SAW AN

IMMEDIATE CHANGE IN THEIR

FINANCES.

SOME MONEY CAME WE WERE

NOT EXPECTING, AND I REALLY

JUST BELIEVE THAT WAS, LIKE,

A CONFIRMATION FROM GOD,

SEE, I AM WATCHING AND I DO

CARE AND I WILL BLESS YOU.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

KEPT TITHING, EVEN WHEN

MARGARET LEFT HER JOB TO

STAY AT HOME WITH THE KIDS,

AND GOD CONTINUED TO CONCEDE

THE SESSION'S NEEDS.

THE NEXT YEAR, WHEN HE

QUIT WORKING, I ACTUALLY

MADE UP HER SALARY.

I MADE MY SALARY, PLUS HER

SALARY, PLUS SEVERAL

THOUSAND DOLLARS MORE.

THAT WAS AMAZING, THAT GOD

HAD PROVIDED IN SUCH A WAY,

BECAUSE I HAD SUCH A FEAR I

WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DO IT.

I KNOW IT WASN'T ME DOING IT

ON MY OWN, BUT IT WAS GOD

SHOWING ME I CAN RELY UPON

HIM.

Reporter: NOW THAT

THEIR HOME FINANCES WERE IN

ORDER, ERNEST HAD TO TACKLE

OVER $100,000 IN BUSINESS

DEBT.

HE WAS SURPRISED AT WHAT GOD

DIRECTED HIM TO DO.

IT FELT LIKE THE LORD

BEGAN TO LEAD ME, AND

SPEAKING TO ME, HE TOLD ME

THAT THE BUSINESS WAS HIS,

THE ENTIRE BUSINESS BELONGED

TO HIM, AND I NEEDED TO

BEGIN TO TITHE OFF THE

ENTIRE BUSINESS.

Reporter: ERNEST KNEW

IT WOULD BE A CHALLENGE, BUT

HE SAID YES TO GOD.

AND WENT TO TITHING ON WHAT

HE WAS MAKING AFTER TAXES,

TO TITHING ON HIS PRE-TAXED

PROFIT.

IN THE FOLLOWING YEARS, HIS

COMPANY GREW 150%, AND HE

WAS ABLE TO PAY DOWN HIS

DEBT.

THE SESSIONS ALSO BECAME CBN

PARTNERS.

IF WE, AS CHRISTIANS,

DON'T GIVE, WHO WILL.

WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO

DO THAT, TO HELP SUPPORT

MINISTRIES, GET THE WORD

OUT.

Reporter: ERNEST AND

MARGARET HAD HELPED PUT TWO

SONS THROUGH COLLEGE, AND

NOW HAVE A LIFE THEY ONLY

DREAMED OF.

I WAS A KID WHO GREW UP

IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, IN AN

APARTMENT.

I HAVE NEVER FLOWN ON AN

AIRPLANE IN MY LIFE.

I'VE FLOWN ON SO MANY

AIRPLANES NOW, I CAN HARDLY

KEEP TRACK OF THEM.

AND GOD CONTINUES TO DO

WONDERFUL, AMAZING THINGS.

HE KEEPS ME FROM HAVING

THOSE HOLES IN MY POCKETS

ANYMORE.

AND THE NIGHTS OF NOT

SLEEPING WELL, NO MORE.

I JUST BELIEVE THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING IS IS TO

GIVE TO GOD.

YOU CAN'T ROB GOD AND EXPECT

TO PROSPER.

THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT

WHEREVER OUR TREASURE IS,

THAT'S WHERE OUR HEART IS.

I BELIEVE GOD IS IS LOOKING

FOR MEN, WOMEN, BOYS AND

GIRLS, THAT HE CAN TRUST,

THAT HE KNOWS HE HAS THEIR

HEART.

Gordon: ERNEST AND

MARVA LEARNED THE SECRET,

AND YOU CAN, TOO.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAY, I

WANT TO BE LOYAL TO GOD.

THEN THIS PROMISE FROM THE

BIBLE COMES TRUE FOR YOU.

"FOR THE EYES OF THE LORD

RUN TO AND FRO THROUGHOUT

THE WHOLE EARTH, TO SHOW

HIMSELF STRONG ON BEHALF OF

THOSE WHO'S HEART IS LOYAL

TO HIM."

ERNEST PROVED THAT HE WAS

LOYAL TO GOD.

HE PROVED I WANT TO OBEY GOD

AND LET HIM HELP ME.

AND WHEN HE DID, AND WHEN HE

OBEYED WHAT GOD WAS TELLING

HIM TO DO, THEN HE

PROSPERED.

AND THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU

IF YOU JUST TRUST GOD WITH

YOUR FINANCES.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS.

SOME EXISTING CBN PARTNERS

SAY WE LOVE GIVING, AND WE

LOVE LIVING A LIFE OF

GENEROSITY.

AND SO THEY WANT TO

CHALLENGE OTHERS TO GIVE.

SO FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES,

THEY'LL MATCH YOUR GIFT,

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, UP TO

$50,000.

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: LORD, WE ASK

FOR BLESSING OVER THIS, AND

WE JUST ASK FOR YOUR

ANOINTING TO BE ON THIS.

YOU GIVE THE INCREASE, LORD,

SO WE JUST ASK FOR THAT

NOW.

AND WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD

SPEAK TO THOSE WHO ARE

WATCHING NOW, ENCOURAGE

THEM.

WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

GORDON?

Gordon: SCOTT ARNOLD 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, AND WHEN SHE

PASSED AWAY, I REALLY

FLOUNDERED.

I ENDED UP BEING HOMELESS IN

THE STREETS OF TUCSON,

ARIZONA.

Reporter: IN 2005,

SCOTT GOT OFF THE STREETS

AND THE DRUGS.

HE BECAME A CHRISTIAN AND

LEARNED ABOUT TITHING.

WHEN SCOTT GOT A JOB WORKING

CONSTRUCTION, HE DECIDED IT

WAS TIME TO PUT WHAT HE

LEARNED INTO PRACTICE.

IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT AT

FIRST BECAUSE FOR ME TO GIVE

MONEY WHEN I WAS JUST COMING

OUT OF THE STREETS WAS A BIG

DECISION.

WELL, RIGHT AWAY I STARTED

SEEING THE SUPER NATURAL

FAVOR OF GOD.

> I WENT FROM LIVING IN A

HALFWAY HOUSE TO GETTING MY

OWN APARTMENT.

Reporter: SCOTT BEGAN

PRAYING FOR A JOB AT A LOCAL

REHABILITATION CENTER.

HE WAS HIRED A FEW MONTHS

LATER.

I PRAYED FOR A MONTH

STRAIGHT BEFORE THEY HIRED

ME.

OTHERS HAD COLLEGE DEGREES,

WERE ALREADY WORKING FOR THE

COMPANY, WANTED THAT

POSITION, AND THEY HIRED ME

BECAUSE THEY JUST SAW THE

LOVE I HAVE FOR OTHER PEOPLE

AND HOW MUCH I WANTED TO

HELP OTHER PEOPLE GET

BETTER.

Reporter: SCOTT WAS

OFFERED THE POSITION OF

RESIDENT MANAGER IN 2006.

JUST THREE YEARS LATER, HE

RECEIVED ANOTHER PROMOTION.

GOD GAVE ME PROMOTIONS

THAT NO MAN COULD GIVE ME.

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 FAITHFULLY TITHED

OVER THE YEARS, GOD SHOWED

ME THE INCREASE.

IT'S AN ABSOLUTE MIRACLE

WHAT JESUS CHRIST HAS DONE

IN MY LIFE.

I LIVED IN A CARDBOARD BOX

SEVEN AND A HALF YEARS AGO.

I LIVED IN DUMPSTERS, EATING

OUT OF DUMPSTERS, AND NOW

GOD HAS PROVIDED AN

INCREDIBLE HOME WHERE I CAN

HAVE BIBLE STUDIES IN MY

HOUSE.

IT'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

RESOURCE 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 AND THE

ONLY STEP TO TAKE, AND HE

WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN.

Gordon: WHAT A

REMARKABLE STORY, A

REMARKABLE TURNAROUND.

TO GO FROM HOMELESSNESS,

EATING OUT OF A GARBAGE

DUMP, TO HAVING YOUR OWN

FAMILY, HAVING YOUR OWN

HOME, ALL OF THAT MADE

POSSIBLE BECAUSE SCOTT

TRUSTED GOD.

HE FIRST TRUSTED HIM WITH

HIS LIFE AND WITH HIS

ETERNAL SOUL.

HE SAID, GOD, I NEED YOU.

I CAN'T DELIVER MYSELF FROM

THESE ADDICTIONS, BUT YOU

CAN.

AND THEN WHEN HE GOT FREE

FROM ALL OF THAT, HE SAID,

I'M GOING TO TRUST GOD WITH

EVERYTHING.

HERE IT IS FROM PSALMS 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."

NOW, THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU

WHEN YOU START TRUSTING GOD

WITH EVERYTHING.

AND IF YOU WANT TO START A

LIFE OF GENEROUS GIVING,

GIVE US A CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

$20 A MONTH, 65 IS CENTS A

DAY.

SOME OF YOU SAY I CAN GIVE

MORE THAN THAT.

YOU CAN GIVE AT "THE 700

CLUB" GOLD, THAT'S $40 A

MONTH, AND THEN WE HAVE THE

THOUSAND CLUB, AND THAT'S

$1,000 A YEAR, AND THAT

BREAKS OUT TO $84 A MONTH.

AT WHATEVER LEVEL GOD IS IS

SPEAKING TO YOU TO GIVE, NOW

IS THE TIME TO DO IT.

WE'VE GOT A $50,000

CHALLENGE, WHICH MEANS

EXISTING CBN DONORS, JUST

LIKE SCOTT, SAY WE LOVE

LIVING GENEROUSLY, AND WE

WANT TO CHALLENGE OTHERS TO

GIVE.

AND THEY'LL MATCH YOU,

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, UP TO

$50,000.

CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

WHEN NELSON'S BUSINESS TOOK

A HIT, HE AND HIS WIFE WENT

THROUGH THEIR SAVINGS, AND

NELSON HAD TO GET A SECOND

JOB.

THEN ONE DAY HE HEARD A

VOICE, TELLING HIM TO TAKE A

CERTAIN HIGHWAY EXIT, AND

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT SAVED HIS

COMPANY.

TO ME, NOTHING WAS

IMPORTANT ANYMORE.

NOTHING MEANT ANYTHING TO ME

EXCEPT MY LITTLE GIRL.

Reporter: NELSON AND

BEVERLY'S WORLD WAS TURNED

UP SIDE DOWN, WHEN THEIR

3-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH A CONDITION

THAT REQUIRED OPEN-HEART

SURGERY.

TO TELL YOU THAT IT WAS

VERY DIFFICULT WOULDN'T PUT

IT INTO WORDS.

Reporter: NELSON OWNED

HIS OWN BUSINESS INSTALLING

FENCES, BUT BETWEEN SPENDING

TIME AT DOCTORS' OFFICES AND

WORRYING ABOUT HIS DAUGHTER,

HE HAD TROUBLE FOCUSING ON

WORK.

NELSON WAS FALLING APART,

AND THE BUSINESS STARTED TO

STRUGGLE.

HE WAS TREMENDOUSLY STRESSED

OUT.

Reporter: NELSON AND

BEVERLY PRAYED FOR A SUCCESS

SURGERY AND A QUICK RECOVERY

FOR THEIR DAUGHTER.

WHEN THE DAUGHTER CAME

OUT AND SAID EVERYTHING CAME

OUT PERFECT, I JUST THANKED

GOD.

IT WAS AN AMAZING TIME.

Reporter: NELSON'S

BUSINESS DIDN'T RECOVER AS

QUICKLY AS THEIR DAUGHTER

DID.

THE COUPLE WENT THROUGH

THEIR SAVINGS, AND NELSON

TOOK ON ADDITIONAL WORK

SELLING CARS.

EVEN THROUGH THE DARKEST

DAYS, I STILL PRAISED GOD.

I HAD SOME INCOME COMING

IN.

I THANKED HIM FOR THAT.

Reporter: ONE DAY

NELSON WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT A

COUPLE WHO HAD A DAUGHTER IN

CHINA, AND SHE NEEDED HEART

SURGERY.

SO THIS FAMILY DIDN'T HAVE

THE MONEY, AND "THE 700

CLUB" PAID FOR THE ENTIRE

SURGERY.

THIS LIFE-THREATENING

PROBLEM.

SO OBVIOUSLY, THAT WAS VERY

NEAR AND DEAR TO ME.

Reporter: NELSON WAS

ALREADY A TITHER, AND EVEN

THOUGH THEY WERE STRUGGLING

FINANCIALLY, HE DECIDED TO

BECOME A "700 CLUB"

PARTNER.

HOW AWESOME IT WOULD BE

THAT MY FEW DOLLARS THAT I'M

GIVING CAN CONTRIBUTE TO

THAT CAUSE THAT SAVED THIS

LITTLE GIRL.

SO I'M ALL IN.

Reporter: A FEW WEEKS

LATER, HE WAS DRIVING HOME

FROM WORK.

I FELT THE HOLY SPIRIT AT

THAT TIME PROMPT ME TO GET

OFF ON THIS EXIT.

AND THEN I LOOKED OVER TO MY

RIGHT, AND THERE WAS THIS

BIG CONSTRUCTION SITE.

AND I REALLY FELT THE HOLY

SPIRIT TELL ME TO JUST PULL

IN THERE.

Reporter: NELSON

INTRODUCED HIMSELF TO THE

PROJECT MANAGER AND OFFERED

HIS SERVICES.

HE SAID, YEAH, WE'RE

LOOKING TO GET A FENCE

DONE.

HOW ABOUT YOU GIVING ME A

QUOTE?

IT TURNED OUT TO BE OUR

BIGGEST PROJECT IN THE

HISTORY OF MY COMPANY.

Reporter: THE JOB

PRODUCED MORE THAN $100,000,

AND BROUGHT THE FAMILY'S

FINANCES BACK ON TRACK.

TODAY BUSINESS IS GOING

GREAT.

IN MALACHI, IT SAYS, JUST

TRUST ME AND TITHE.

I'M GOING TO MAKE YOUR

STOREHOUSE TO OVERFLOW.

I ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY WHO IS

GOING THROUGH A FINANCIAL

CHALLENGE IN THEIR LIFE, TO

GIVE WITH YOUR HEART -- GIVE

WITH A CHEERFUL HEART.

WHEN YOU'RE FAITHFUL, HE

GIVES BACK MORE THAN YOU CAN

EVER IMAGINE.

Gordon: AND HE WILL

GIVE BACK MORE THAN YOU CAN

EVER IMAGINE.

NELSON'S STORY CAN BE YOUR

STORY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS OBEY

HIM.

WE CALL IT THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY.

AND THESE ARE THE WORDS OF

JESUS, LUKE 6: "GIVE AND IT

WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU, A GOOD

MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN,

SHAKEN TOGETHER AND RUNNING

OVER, WILL BE POURED INTO

YOUR LAP.

FOR WITH THE MEASURE YOU

USE, IT WILL BE MEASURED TO

YOU."

NELSON DID THAT.

HE SAID, I'M GOING TO GIVE,

AND THE LAW OF RESIPROCITY

TOOK OVER, AND GOD GAVE BACK

TO HIM.

HE TOLD HIM EXACTLY WHERE TO

GO TO FIND THE BIGGEST DEAL

HIS BUSINESS EVER HAD.

HE'LL DO THAT FOR YOU.

HE IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR OTHERS,

HE WILL DO FOR YOU.

BUT YOU'VE GOT TO PUT IT IN

MOTION.

YOU'VE GOT TO USE THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY TO YOUR OWN

ADVANTAGE BY GIVING, AND

THEN IT KICKS IN FOR YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO START THAT,

GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A PART OF IT.

"GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY

BREAD."

BUT WHAT DOES THAT REALLY

MUCH MORE IN HIS NEW

Wendy: ISN'T THAT

REALLY AMAZING?

I'VE BEEN PRAYING THE LORD'S

PRAYER ME ENTIRE LIFE, I'M

SURE YOU HAVE, TOO, AND

NEVER REALLY REALIZED HOW

THAT'S WHY "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS STILL THERE,

HELPING PEOPLE LIKE BARBARA

JOYCE, A THREE-TIME CANCER

SURVIVOR WHO'S HOME WAS

COVERED BY 10 FEET OF

WATER.

Reporter: A LOOK FROM

ABOVE BREEZY POINT, NEW

YORK, SHOWS THE DESTRUCTION

THAT SUPER STORM SANDY LEFT

BEHIND.

FLOODWATERS DESTROYED 2800

HOMES.

A SIX-ALARM FIRE LEFT 100

OTHERS IN RUINS.

THIS STORM, SANDY, WAS

THE WORST WE EVER HAD.

IT WAS DEVASTATING.

Reporter: BARBARA JOYCE

HAS LIVED IN BREEZY POINT

SINCE SHE WAS FIVE, THE

DAUGHTER OF A POLICE

OFFICER.

WITH NO FAMILY CLOSE BY, AND

SANDY BEARING DOWN, BARBARA

TOOK REFUGE AT A FRIEND'S

HOUSE.

I LEFT AT 3:00 THE NIGHT

BEFORE.

SOME PEOPLE STAYED AND THEY

ALMOST DIED.

AND PEOPLE HAD TO RUN INTO

THEIR ATTIC BECAUSE THE

WATER WAS SO HIGH.

Reporter: BARBARA'S

HOME TOOK ON 10 FEET OF

WATER, SO SHE LOST MOST OF

HER BELONGINGS.

PHOTOS OF A LIFETIME OF

MEMORIES WERE DESTROYED.

IT LEFT THIS THREE-TIME

CANCER SURVIVOR SHATTERED,

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

HER LIFE, HOMELESS.

I WAS SUFFERING, I WAS

STRUGGLING.

I WAS RUINED.

NOW WHERE AM I GOING TO GO?

Reporter: BARBARA

STAYED WITH FRIENDS AS LONG

AS THEY COULD, BUT HAD NO

PLACE TO CALL HOME.

I KNOW WHAT IT IS TO BE

HOMELESS, AND I COULD FEEL

FOR THE PEOPLE THAT ARE OUT

ON THE STREET BECAUSE I WAS

THERE.

Reporter: WITHOUT FLOOD

INSURANCE, BARBARA DIDN'T

HAVE THE RESOURCES TO

REBUILD.

BUT "OPERATION BLESSING" WAS

ALREADY ON THE SCENE.

WE MET BARBARA JUST A FEW

DAYS AFTER THE STORM.

"OPERATION BLESSING" WERE

THE FIRST PEOPLE TO GIVE ME

A HAND.

THEY WERE THERE FROM DAY

ONE.

Reporter: TEAMS OF

VOLUNTEERS BEGAN THE CLEANUP

PROCESS AND HELPED BARBARA

SALVAGE WHAT SHE COULD.

AND WHEN THE DIRECTOR OF

U.S. DISASTER RELIEF HEARD

BARBARA AND HEARD OF HER

STRUGGLES, SHE PUT IN A MUCH

BIGGER PLAN.

"OPERATION BLESSING" WOULD

PROVIDE BARBARA WITH A

TOTALLY REFURNISHED AND

REBUILT HOME.

IN LESS THAN THREE HOURS,

WE'LL BE WELCOMING MISS

BARBARA JOYCE BACK HOME.

THERE IS LOTS OF ACTIVITY IN

THE HOUSE.

WE'RE MOVING IN FURNITURE.

WE'RE CLEANING UP THE

HOUSE.

OUTSIDE THEY'RE PLANTING

FLOWERS, AND MAKING THE

LANDSCAPING BEAUTIFUL,

BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO GIVE

THIS HOMEOWNER A SURPRISE OF

A LIFETIME.

WELCOME HOME, BARBARA!

[YELLING]

AH, OH, IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

IT'S SUCH A GOOD SURPRISE,

HONESTLY.

I CAN'T BEGIN TO TELL YOU

HOW GRATEFUL I AM.

YOU TOOK MY STRESS AWAY, MY

STRUGGLING, MY SUFFERING.

Reporter: BARBARA IS NO

LONGER HOMELESS.

ONCE AGAIN SHE HAS A PLACE

TO CALL HER OWN.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU,

THANK YOU.

I'M SO HAPPY.

I'M SO HAPPY.

I'M SO BLESSED AND SO

GRATEFUL BECAUSE OF YOU,

"OPERATION BLESSING."

SO MANY PEOPLE HELPED.

Terry: WE'RE SEEING SO

MANY PEOPLE, WHO HAVE BEEN

SO DEVASTATED BY THINGS THAT

HAVE HAPPENED IN THEIR LIVES

JUST NATURALLY.

YOU AND I CAN MAKE A

TREMENDOUS DIFFERENCE.

WE CAN BRING HOPE BACK INTO

THE MIDST OF HOPELESSNESS.

HERE AT HOME AND AROUND THE

WORLD AS WELL.

YOU CAN DO THAT FOR 65 CENTS

A DAY, $20 A MONTH.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE ASKING YOU

TO GO TO YOUR PHONE AND

CALL.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY I WANT TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB" AT WHATEVER LEVEL

YOU CHOOSE.

WOULD YOU CONSIDER DOING 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.

IT IS ALL DONE FOR YOU.

IT SAVES US SOME MONEY ON

THE PROCESSING COSTS, AND SO

WE CAN PUT EVEN MORE OF YOUR

GIFT INTO THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE LIKE MISS BARBARA.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU BY

SENDING YOU "POWER FOR LIFE"

TEACHINGS.

WE GET ONE EVERY MONTH, AND

WE THINK THEY WILL BE A

BLESSING TO YOU AS WELL.

Gordon: WE'VE GOT A

$50,000 CHALLENGE.

AND WE HAVE TO STOP THAT

CLOCK BECAUSE SOME CBN

PARTNERS SAY $50,000 ISN'T

ENOUGH TO DO WHAT IS NEEDED

IN THE WORLD.

THEY WANT TO TAKE IT TO

$225,00,000 UNTIL THE END

OF THE PROGRAM.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS.

AND WE ASK, ESPECIALLY, FOR

A BLESSING OVER THE PARTNERS

THAT MADE IT POSSIBLE TO

MAKE THIS CHALLENGE.

WE KNOW YOUR WORD, THAT YOU

WILL OPEN THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR OUT BLESSING

THEY CANNOT CONTAIN.

SPEAK TO THEM AND COMFORT

THEM.

IN JESUS' NAME WE ASK THIS.

AMEN.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO

GO TO THE PHONE AND CALL US,

1-800-759-0700, AND SAY,

YES, I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

WHEREVER DISASTERS STRIKE,

WE WANT TO STRIKE BACK WITH

LOVE AND COMPASSION.

AND WHEN AN EARTHQUAKE

STRUCK CHINA'S SZECHUAN

PROVINCE, THE CBN TEAM WAS

ON THE GROUND, CARING FOR A

COMMUNITY OF ELDERLY PEOPLE

WITH NOWHERE ELSE TO TURN.

Reporter: IT WAS JUST

AFTER 8 A.M. SATURDAY

MORNING, APRIL 20th, WHEN

THE GROUND STARTED SHAKING

IN THE REMOTE PROVINCE OF

YAAN, IN SOUTHEAST CHINA.

MY FIRST REACTION WAS,

THIS MUST BE AN EARTHQUAKE.

RIGHT AWAY I RAN, AND

TELLING OTHER VILLAGES TO

RUN, TOO.

THE WHOLE WALL COLLAPSED

ON TOP OF PEOPLE.

Reporter: CHINA

REPORTED A MAGNITUDE 7

EARTHQUAKE THAT DAY.

NEARLY 200 PEOPLE DIED.

10,000 MORE WERE INJURED AND

NEEDED IMMEDIATE MEDICAL

ATTENTION.

ESPECIALLY IN MALSI, WHERE

MOST OF THE POPULATION IS

ELDERLY.

THEY HAD NO CLOSE

RELATIVES WHEN THE QUAKE

OCCURRED.

THE 60 YEARS OLD TO CARE FOR

THE 70 YEARS OLD.

THE 70 YEARS OLD TO CARE FOR

THE 80 YEARS OLD.

AFTER THE DISASTER, THEY

JUST LOST HOPE.

Reporter: TODAY MOST

VILLAGERS WERE LIVING

INTENTS.

MR. FAP FANG WAS CRYING

BECAUSE HE WAS IN SHOCK.

A LOCAL CBN TEAM MOBILIZED

AND MADE ITS WAY OVER ROUGH

ROADS TO MEET THE NEEDS OF

PEOPLE LIKE MR. FANG.

WE SENT ONE OF OUR VOLUNTEER

DOCTORS INTO SEE HIM RIGHT

AWAY AND BROUGHT HIM SOME

FOOD.

HE AND HIS WIFE WERE

GRATEFUL.

I THANK YOU.

I THANK YOU.

Reporter: IN ADDITION

TO PROVIDING FREE MEDICAL

TREATMENT FOR THE VICTIMS,

WE DISTRIBUTED GROCERIES,

BLANKETS, AND OTHER

EMERGENCY SUPPLIES.

IT REALLY HELPS TO SEE

CBN HERE IN MY PARENTS'

VILLAGE.

THEY WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE

WHO BROUGHT US TANGIBLE

RELIEF EVERY DAY.

THE RELIEF DOES NOT ONLY

LAST FOR ONE OR TWO DAYS.

IT TAKES SOME TIME FOR

REBUILDING.

WE HOPE MORE AND MORE PEOPLE

WILL HELP US TO CONTINUE OUR

WORK HERE.

Gordon: BE A PART OF

IT.

BE A PART OF EVERYTHING

WE'RE DOING, WHETHER IT IS A

DISASTER IN NEW JERSEY,

OKLAHOMA, OR CHINA, WE WANT

TO BE THERE, AND WE WANT TO

HELP PEOPLE AND LET THEM

KNOW WE LOVE THEM, AND GOD

LOVES THEM, TOO.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

IT, JUST JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

CALL US, 1-800-759-0700.

AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN.

NOW, HOW MUCH IS IT?

IT IS $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS

A DAY.

SOME OF YOU SAY WELL, I CAN

GIVE MORE THAN THAT.

WE'VE GOT "700 CLUB" GOLD,

$40 A MONTH.

THOUSAND CLUB IS $1,000 A

YEAR, AND THAT BREAKS OUT TO

$84 A MONTH.

AT WHATEVER LEVEL GOD IS

SPEAKING TO YOU TO GIVE, NOW

IS THE TYP TIME TO DO.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

$225,000 CHALLENGE, WITH 20

MINUTES TO GO.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

WHEN JESUS' DISCIPLES ASKED

THEM HOW TO PRAY, HE GAVE

THEM AN ANSWER THAT BECAME

THE MOST FAMOUS PRAYER IN

HISTORY.

IN THIS NEW D.V.D., "OUR

FATHER," GORDON TAKES YOU

THROUGH THE LORD'S PRAYER.

HERE IS WHAT ONE VIEWER HAD

TO SAY.

WE ACTUALLY SAID THE

LORD'S PRAYER WHEN WE GOT IN

THE WATER THE OTHER DAY.

THAT'S SOMETHING I DID.

I WATCHED "OUR FATHER"

RECENTLY, AND I LOVED IT.

GORDON'S TEACHING OF THE

LORD'S PRAYER STOOD OUT.

HE IS SHOWING EVERYBODY --

OR HE IS TEACHING THE STEPS

TO COMMUNICATE WITH GOD.

GOD WANTS US TO BE BE

HAPPY.

HE WANTS US TO ENJOY LIFE.

HE IS OUR FATHER, AND HE

LOVES US.

Wendy: IF I WAS OUT

THERE SURFING, I WOULD

DEFINITELY BE PRAYING THE

LORD'S PRAYER, LORD, DELIVER

ME FROM THE SHARKS.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE

THIS, "OUR FATHER, KEYS TO

THE LORD'S PRAYER," AND THIS

COULD REALLY CHANGE YOUR

LIFE.

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU GIVE US A CALL RIGHT

NOW, 1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A MEMBER,

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU.

WE NEED YOU.

AND WE NEED YOU TO GO TO THE

NEXT LEVEL.

IF YOU CAN, $40 A MONTH,

THAT'S OUR GOLD LEVEL.

WE'RE GOING TO BLESS YOU

WITH THREE D.V.D.s.

ONE FOR YOU AND TWO TO GIVE

AWAY.

HOW ABOUT DOING A LITTLE

MORE, $84 A MONTH, THAT'S

OUR THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL, AND

THERE ARE ALSO EVEN HIGHER

LEVELS.

WE'D REALLY APPRECIATE

THAT.

YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE

GOD.

HE WILL BLESS YOU IN

PROPORTION TO THE WAY YOU

GIVE.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

WE WANT YOU TO BE BLESSED,

AND WE WANT YOU TO HAVE "OUR

FATHER, KEYS TO THE LORD'S

PRAYER."

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

$225,000 CHALLENGE.

THAT MEANS EVERY DOLLAR THAT

YOU PLEDGE RIGHT NOW WILL BE

MATCHED DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

PLEASE DON'T WAIT, GO TO

YOUR PHONES RIGHT NOW.

GORDON?

Gordon: WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," YOU JOIN

THOUSANDS OF OTHER PEOPLE

WHO WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE AROUND THE

WORLD.

PEOPLE LIKE SHONZI, WHO HAS

BEEN A CBN PARTNER SINCE SHE

WAS OLD ENOUGH TO WORK.

Reporter: CHAUNCEY

JOINED "700 CLUB" WHEN SHE

WAS JUST 16 YEARS OLD,

FOLLOWING HER MOTHER'S

EXAMPLE.

I'VE BEEN SOWING FOR A

LONG TIME, INTO THE "700

CLUB," SINCE I WAS OLD

ENOUGH TO WORK.

I WOULD SEE HER WRITE THE

ENVELOPE AND SEND IT OFF TO

CBN.

IT LET'S YOU SEE OTHER

PEOPLE'S LIVES AND HOW GOD

WAS SO FAITHFUL.

Reporter: WHEN SHE WAS

A LITTLE GIRL, HER FAMILY

DIDN'T HAVE MUCH, BUT SHE

DID HAVE A BIG DREAM.

WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, I

WANTED TO BE AN AUTHOR.

Reporter: RECENTLY,

CHAUNCEY'S FIRST CHILDREN'S

BOOK ROLLED OFF THE PRESS

AND FOUND ALMOST IMMEDIATELY

SUCCESS.

IT WAS ON AMAZON'S HOT

NEW RELEASES FOR, LIKE, TWO

WEEKS STRAIGHT.

IT WAS ALWAYS MY DREAM TO BE

AN AUTHOR, AND HERE I AM AT

30, AND I'M LIVING IT.

IT IS NOT A DREAM ANYMORE;

IT IS A REALITY.

Reporter: SHE

ATTRIBUTES HER SUCCESS TO

THE LAW OF RECIPROCITY.

I WOULD JUST SAY, GET OUT

THE CHECKBOOK, MAIL IT IN,

AND WATCH GOD SHOW UP IN

YOUR LIFE AND BLESS YOU

BEYOND REASON.

I'M A WITNESS THAT THE LAW

OF RESIPROCITY WORKS.

GIVE AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

IT IS JUST AMAZING.

Gordon: IT IS AMAZING.

AND IT IS AMAZING WHAT CAN

HAPPEN WHEN YOU TRUST GOD

WITH YOUR FINANCES.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

DO IT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

$25,000 CHALLENGE.

IF WE GET THE RED NUMBER UP,

$153,000.

IN SOUTH CAROLINA, A FOUNDER

SAYING I WANT TO DO IT

THROUGH PLEDGE EXPRESS,

$5,000.

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: ALL OF THAT

GETS MATCHED AND DOUBLED,

$148,000 LEFT ON THAT RED

NUMBER.

CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

Terry: ROGER AND HIS

WIFE BOTH LONG HOURS IN THE

SUN IN SOUTHERN INDIA, AND3

YET THEY COULD BARELY AFFORD

TO FEED THEIR FAMILY.

SO WHEN THEIR 5-YEAR-OLD SON

WAS INJURED, THEY HAD NO

MONEY FOR MEDICAL CARE.

Reporter: THEY WORK

HARD AS DAY LABO LABORERS

IN SOUTHERN INDIANA.

ONE DAY WHEN THEY RETURNED

HOME, THEY FOUND THEIR

5-YEAR-OLD PUNCTURED HIS

EYE.

WE WERE SO SCARED WHEN WE

SAW HIS EYE BLEEDING.

WE TOOK HIM TO A DOCTOR, AND

HE GAVE US SOME MEDICINE.

BUT THE NEXT DAY MY SON TOLD

US HE COULDN'T SEE OUT OF

HIS RIGHT EYE.

Reporter: A TRAUMATIC

CATARACT HAS FORMED IN HIS

EYE, BUT HIS PARENTS

COULDN'T AFFORD TO PAY FOR

SURGERY TO REMOVE IT.

WE FELT SO BAD THAT WE

COULDN'T HELP OUR SON.

THEN THE HEAD MASTER AT

AHMED'S SCHOOL TOLD US HE

COULDN'T GO BACK TO SCHOOL

UNTIL HE GOT HIS EYE FIXED.

BUT WE BARELY MAKE ENOUGH TO

FEED OUR FAMILY.

Reporter: THEY WENT TO

SEVERAL HOSPITALS LOOKING

FOR HELP, BUT EVERY TIME

THEY WERE TURNED AWAY.

THEN THEY FOUND A HOSPITAL

THAT PARTNERED WITH CBN.

THE DOCTOR TOLD THEM THAT

AHMED WERE GET A FREE

OPERATION.

WHEN I EXAMINED HIM, HE

HAD A PERFORATION IN THE

CORNEA.

HE NEEDED SURGERY TO PUT AN

ARTIFICIAL LENS IN THE EYE.

Reporter: THE NEXT DAY

THE BANDAGE WAS REMOVED.

SOON HE WAS ABLE TO SEE

CLEARLY AND GO BACK TO

SCHOOL.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR

HELPING AHMED GET HIS SIGHT

BACK.

YOU HAVE NOT ONLY GIVEN HIM

CLEAR VISION, BUT YOU HAVE

ALSO GIVEN HIM A FUTURE.

Terry: WITHOUT AN AN

EDUCATION, AHMED WOULD HAVE

NO FUTURE.

THIS WAS AN UNEXPECTED

TRAGEDY THAT OCCURRED, AND

HIS FAMILY SIMPLY DIDN'T

HAVE ANY EXTRA MONEY.

YOU CAME INTO THE MIDST OF

THAT, BROUGHT THEM THE

OPPORTUNITY FOR THEIR SON TO

BE CARED FOR FOR FREE, WHICH

ALLOWED HIM TO GO BACK INTO

SCHOOL.

AND FOR THEM AS PARENTS TO

CONTINUE TO TAKING CARE OF

THEIR LITTLE FAMILY.

YOU'RE DOING THIS ALL AROUND

THE WORLD, EVERY SINGLE DAY,

IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER.

IF YOU'RE NOT, WILL YOU CALL

TOUCH EVEN MORE LIVES, LIKE

AHMED'S AND HIS FAMILY.

YOU.

CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

CBN PROVIDES FREE MEDICAL

CARE FOR CHILDREN ALL OVER

THE WORLD.

LIKE THIS BABY BOY IN

INDONESIA.

HE WOULD HAVE BEEN

DISFIGURED FOR LIFE WITHOUT

HELP FROM PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

Terry: SERIANI WAS

EXCITED THE DAY THAT HER SON

WAS BORN, UNTIL SHE SAW HIM

FOR THE FIRST TIME.

AFTER THE MIDWIFE PUT HIM

ON MY CHEST, I SAW THE CLEFT

LIP.

I CRIED.

Terry: SERIANI KNEW

THAT HER SON'S CONDITION

COULD BE FIXED WITH A SIMPLE

OPERATION, BUT SHE ALSO KNEW

THEY COULD NEVER AFFORD IT.

SERIANI'S HUSBAND WORKS TWO

JOBS.

SOME DAYS HE WORKS AS A

MINER, THE OTHER DAYS AS A

FARMER.

TOGETHER THE JOBS DIDN'T

PROVIDE ENOUGH FOR SURGERY.

WHEN MERCÍ WAS ABOUT SEVEN

MONTHS OLD, A VILLAGE

OFFICIAL TOLD THE COUPLE

THAT CBN WAS COMING TO THEIR

ISLAND TO DO FREE CLEFT LIP

SURGERIES.

AS SOON AS THE DOCTORS

ARRIVED, SERIANI REGISTERED

HER SON, AND HE WAS TAKEN IN

FOR THE OPERATION.

TWO MONTHS LATER, WHEN WE

WENT TO CHECK ON MERCÍDAN,

WE FOUND THE LIP ALL HEALED

UP FROM SURGERY.

I'M VERY HAPPY AND

THANKFUL TO GOD AND TO THOSE

WHO HAVE HELPED MY SON.

THE DIFFERENCE IS REALLY

AMAZING.

THAT'S WHY I SAY A BIG THANK

YOU TO CBN FOR WHAT THEY DID

TO HELP US.

Gordon: AND A BIG THANK

THERE IS SO MUCH NEED IN THE

WORLD TODAY.

SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

WE'VE GOT A LONG WAY TO GO.

THE RED NUMBER IS $113,000.

SO WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU,

CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

THROUGHOUT THE SCRIPTURES,

JESUS TOLD HIS DISCIPLES TO

PRAY.

BUT THERE WAS ONLY ONE TIME

WHEN HE TOLD THEM HOW TO

PRAY.

WE KNOW IT, OF COURSE, AS

THE LORD'S PRAYER.

HERE IS WHY IT IS SO

IMPORTANT.

Wendy: YOU'RE GOING TO

LOVE THIS TEACHING.

IT IS SO RICH.

IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, YOU'VE

BEEN PRAYING THE LORD'S

PRAYER YOUR ENTIRE LIFE,

THOUSANDS OF TIMES, AND

NEVER REALLY UNDERSTANDING

THE INCREDIBLE POWER.

IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, JESUS

TOLD HIS DISCIPLES THIS IS

HOW YOU PRAY, SO IT OUGHT TO

BE POWERFUL, RIGHT?

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS

POWER.

IT IS OUR GIFT TO YOU, WHEN

YOU CALL RIGHT NOW.

"OUR FATHER" LEARN HOW TO

PRY THE WAY JESUS PRAYED.

IT IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU CALL AND JOIN "THE 700

WE'RE GOING TO SEND YOU

THREE D.V.D.s AS OUR WAY

OF SAYING THANKS, ONE FOR

PERHAPS YOU CAN DO EVEN

MORE, $84, OUR THOUSAND CLUB

LEVEL, OR EVEN HIGHER.

WE'RE GOING TO REALLY BLESS

YOU, WE'RE GOING TO SEND YOU

FIVE "OUR FATHER, KEY TO THE

LORD'S PRAYER" D.V.D.s.

ANYONE YOU WANT TO BLESS.

TERRY?

Terry: EVERY MOTHER

WAITS EAGERLY TO HEAR HER

BABY'S FIRST WORDS, BUT FOR

ONE MOTHER IN VIETNAM, THAT

DAY WAS ESPECIALLY SWEET,

AND YOU'RE ABOU BOUB TO SEE

WHY.

Reporter: CAMTI CAME

DOWN WITH GERMAN MEASLES

WHILE SHE WAS PREGNANT.

SHE IMMEDIATELY WENT TO HER

DOCTOR IN VIETNAM, WHO

RECOMMENDED THEY TERMINATE

THE PREGNANCY.

SHE AND HER HUSBAND ARE

CHRISTIANS, SO THEY PRAYED

ABOUT WHAT TO DO.

WE BELIEVED THAT GOD

CREATED THIS BABY.

NO ONE HAD THE RIGHT TO

THIC TAKE THIS BABY.

Reporter: EVERYTHING

SEEMED NORMAL UNTIL THEY

DISCOVERED SOMETHING.

HE WOULD MAKE NOISES.

Reporter: A DOCTOR

CONFIRMED IT, HE WAS DEAF.

IF HE WERE EVER TO HEAR, HE

WOULD NEED HEARING AIDS, BUT

THE COUPLE COULDN'T AFFORD

IT.

WHEN HE HAS THE HEARING

AIDS ON, HIS FACE LIGHTS

UP.

I'M SO HAPPY HE CAN HEAR

NOW.

Reporter: THEN WE

PROVIDED SPEECH THERAPY

CLASSES FOR BO.

WHENEVER BO SAYS MAMA,

I'M OVERJOYED TO HEAR HIS

VOICE.

Reporter: AND NOW THAT

HE CAN HEAR, ONE OF HIS

FAVORITE THINGS TO DO IS

PLAY WITH HIS BROTHER.

WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR

THE KINDNESS AND LOVE CBN

SHOWED US AND DID FOR OUR

SON.

THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS

YOU YOU.

Terry: SO MANY OF THE

MEDICAL NEEDS THAT WE SHARE

WITH YOU FROM AROUND THE

WORLD ARE THINGS THAT IN THE

UNITED STATES WOULD BE

FAIRLY EASY TO CORRECT.

BUT IN MANY PARTS OF THE

WORLD, PEOPLE DON'T HAVE ANY

OPPORTUNITY FINANCIALLY TO

JUST SIMPLY HELP THEIR

CHILDREN LEARN TO SPEAK.

THEY CAN'T HEAR.

SOME OF THEM NEED TO LEARN

TO WALK.

YOU'RE MAKING ALL OF THATñ

POSSIBLE.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," WE WANT TO SAY THANK

YOU FOR HAVING COMPASSION

AND A HEART OF MERCY TO HELP

OTHER PEOPLE.

IF YOU HAVEN'T JOINED WITH

US, DO IT NOW.

YOU'LL BE JOINING THOUSANDS

MAKE THAT KIND OF A

DIFFERENCE.

IT IS ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING.

YOUR BANK DOES ALL OF THE

WORK, BUT IT SAVES

TEACHINGS.

BLESSED BY IT.

SO PLEASE CALL NOW.

Gordon: WE'VE GOT

WHEN MARICA'S SON WAS BORN,

HE NEEDED SURGERY TO BE ABLE

TO WORK.

BUT MARICA DIDN'T EVEN HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY FOR A RIDE TO

THE HOSPITAL.

Terry: HERE IN UKRAINE,

THE LANDSCAPE IS

PICTURESQUE, BUT THE PEOPLE

ARE TERRIBLY POOR.

HUNDREDS OF GYPSY CHILDREN

AND THEIR FAMILIES LIVE IN

SMALL CAMPS, WHERE THERE IS

ALWAYS GREAT NEED.

WE'VE HELPED CHILDREN LEARN

TO READ AND WRITE, AND WE'VE

GIVEN FAMILIES CLOTHING AND

MEDICAL CARE AND HELPED THEM

STAY WARM IN WINTER.

EVERYONE HERE NEEDS THE

BASIC NECESSITIES OF LIFE,

BUT OCCASIONALLY, WE NEED

SOMEONMEET SOMEONE WHO

NEEDS SOMETHING BEYOND THE

BASICS.

A BABY'S FIRST STEPS ARE

SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE, BUT

MARICA THOUGHT THAT DAY MAY

NEVER COME FOR HER SON, WHO

WAS BORN WITH A CROOKED LEG

AND ANKLE.

I WAS TOLD MY SON NEEDED

SURGERY, OTHERWISE HE

WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO WALK

NORMALLY WHEN HE GROWS UP.

MY HUSBAND WORKS ALL OF THE

TIME, BUT WE BARELY HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY FOR FOOD.

WE DON'T EVEN HAVE ENOUGH

MONEY FOR A TAXI TO THE

HOSPITAL.

Terry: JUST ONE YEAR

AGO, MARICA BECAME A

CHRISTIAN.

SHE HAS BEEN PRAYING FOR HER

SON EVER SINCE.

I ASK GOD EVERY DAY TO

HELP MY SON WALK.

Terry: WHEN WE LEARNED

ABOUT THIS PRECIOUS LITTLE

BOY'S PROBLEMS, WE

IMMEDIATELY PAID FOR HIS

SURGERY.

I REJOICED.

IT WAS A TRUE MIRACLE.

I SAW HIS LEG WAS PERFECTLY

STRAIGHT.

I PRAISED THE LORD FOR HIS

BLESSING.

I WILL ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL TO

YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Gordon: THAT'S WHAT

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS DO, THEY

PROVIDE HELP TO PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD.

CALL US, 1-800-759-0700.

ABILENE, TEXAS, A 2500 CLUB

INDIANA, $12,000, CHAIRMAN'S

ALL OF THAT GETS MATCHED AND

DOUBLED BECAUSE OF THIS

$225,000.

WE'RE COUNTING DOWN TO

VICTORY, JUST FIVE MINUTES

TO GO.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO

CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: HERE IN THE

WESTERN WORLD, POLIO HAS

BEEN ERADICATED, BUT IN SOME

THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES, SOME

PEOPLE ARE STILL BEING

CRIPPLED BY THAT DISEASE.

LIKE THIS WOMAN IN LAOS, WHO

HASN'T WALKED IN MORE THAN

30 YEARS.

Reporter: SHE

CONTRACTED POLIO WHEN SHE

WAS A CHILD AND HAS NEVER

BEEN ABLE TO WALK.

HER SISTER HAS LOOKED AFTER

HER SINCE THEY WERE VERY

YOUNG.

WHEN OUR PARENTS DIED IN

THE WAR, WE HAD TO BEG FOR

FOOD FROM RELATIVES.

WE WERE OFTEN VERY HUNGRY,

EVEN STARVING AT TIMES.

Reporter: BECAUSE OF

HER DISABILITY, PINKIO NEVER

WENT TO SCHOOL, BUT SHE DID

LEARN HOW TO WEAVE.

BUT SHE DIDN'T MAKE ENOUGH

TO BUY MUCH FOOD.

THE SKIRTS ARE NOT

EXPENSIVE BECAUSE THEY ARE

MADE WITH COTTON AND NOT

SILK.

IF I HAD SILK THREADS, MY

CREATIONS WOULD SELL FOR

MUCH MORE.

Reporter: CBN GAVE

PINKIO HER OWN BRAND NEW

LOOM AND LOTS OF SILK THREAD

TO EXPAND HER BUSINESS.

OVERNIGHT, WORD GOT OUT

ERIC IS A TYPICAL BOY WHEN

IT COMES TO PLAYING, HE IS

PRETTY FEARLESS.

ONE DAY HE PUT HIMSELF IN

HARM'S WAY WITHOUT EVEN

KNOWING IT.

Reporter: LIKE MOST

BOYS HIS AGE, 10-YEAR-OLD

ERIC AND HIS FRIENDS LOVE

CATCHING BUGS AND FISH IN

THE SMALL CANALS NEAR THEIR

HOME.

ONE DAY ERIC REACHED INTO A

HOLE AND FELT SOMETHING BITE

HIM.

A MAKE BIT MY T.D.

FINGER, AND I SCREAMED FOR

HELP.

Reporter: A SHORT TIME

LATER, ERIC SHOWED UP HERE,

AT THIS FREE CBN MEDICAL

CLINIC THAT HAD COME TO HIS

VILLAGE IN THE PHILIPPINES.

DR. WENDELL TOOK ONE LOOK AT

THE SWOLLEN FINGER AND KNEW

THE BOY WAS IN DANGER.

THE VENOM DID CAUSE THE

TISSUES OF HIS FINGERS TO

DIE.

WITHOUT PROPER TREATMENT, HE

COULD LOSE THE FINGER OR HIS

WHOLE HAND.

Reporter: A NURSE

DRESSED ERIC'S HAND AND GAVE

HIM A TETANUS SHOT.

THEN WE GAVE HIM A STRONG

ANTIBIOTIC TO FIGHT THE

INFECTION IN HIS FINGER.

BY THE END OF THE DAY, ERIC

WAS FEELING SO MUCH BETTER,

HE DID A CART WHILE

CARTWHEEL FOR US AND HIS

FRIEND.

THANK YOU, YOU'RE THE

BEST.

Gordon: $11,000 ON

$225,000, AND WE'RE GOING TO

COUNT VICTORY BECAUSE

CONROY, TEXAS, FOUNDER,

AND LAKE CHARLES, LOUISIANA,

A THOUSAND CLUB MEMBER

SAYING I'M GOING TO FOUNDER,

$5,000.

WE'RE GOING TO COUNT

EVERYTHING ON THE PHONE,

DECLARE VICTORY.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM CORINTHIANS:

"THANKS BE TO GOD WHO GIVES

US THE VICTORY THROUGH OUR

LORD, JESUS CHRIST."
