The 700 Club - May 23, 2013

Steve and Sandra had the perfect master plan that gave their big family a large home and freedom from debt. When the plan failed, they were left with two mortgages, trying to avoid foreclosure. See how they came out on top and what they ... Read Transcript


Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE CITY OF LONDON IS

REELING FROM A BRUTAL ACT OF

TERRORISM BY ISLAMIC

RADICALS.

TWO MEN WITH MEAT CLEEFERS

CLEAVERS AND KNIVES STABBED

A BRITISH SOLDIER TO DEATH

IN FRONT OF DOZENS OF

PEOPLE.

Terry: THE MEN SAID IT

WAS AN ACT OF REVENGE FOR

DEATHS IN IRAQ AND

AFGHANISTAN.

Reporter: THE VICTIM

WAS A BRITISH SOLDIER, SEEN

BY EYE WITNESSES WALKING

NEAR HIS BARRACKS.

FIRST THE ATTACKERS RAN OVER

HIM WITH A CAR.

AND THEN THEY SAVAGELY

STABBED HIM WITH KNIVES.

WITNESSES SAY THEY SHOUTED

GOD IS GREAT JUST BEFORE THE

ATTACK.

I SAW THAT THE OTHER GUY

HAD THE AXE AND THE GUN.

AND THEN AFTER THAT, ABOUT

20 MINUTES BEFORE THE POLICE

COME.

Reporter: EQUALLY

SHOCKING, THE ATTACKERS DID

NOT FLEE, APPROACHING

CONFUSED BY-STANDERS WITH

THEIR BLOODY HANDS TO

DELIVER A MESSAGE.

ONE SAID, "WE SWEAR BY

ALMIGHTY ALLAH, WE WILL

NEVER STOP FIGHTING YOU."

THE KILLERS CALLED THE

ATTACK AN EYE FOR AN EYE.

THE POLICE SHOT AND WOUNDED

BOTH MEN, WHO WERE LATER

TAKEN TO NEARBY HOSPITALS.

BRITISH OFFICIALS CALLED THE

INCIDENT AN ACT OF

TERRORISM, AND IMMEDIATELY

INCREASED SECURITY AT ALL OF

LONDON'S MILITARY BASES.

DESPICABLE ACTS LIKE

THESE WILL NOT GO

UNPUNISHED.

Reporter: BUT

RIGHT-WING ACTIVISTS QUICKLY

STAGED A PROTEST AND CLASHED

WITH POLICE.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

WE HAVE TIPTOED AROUND THIS

ISSUE.

THIS ISSUE IS POLITICAL

ISLAM SPREADING ACROSS THIS

COUNTRY.

Reporter: THE MAYOR

URGED THE PEOPLE OF THE CITY

TO REMAIN CALM, CALLING THE

ATTACK A ONE-TIME INCIDENT.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: WE NEED TO HEAR

FROM MUSLIM LEADERS

CONDEMNING THIS ATTACK.

THERE WERE SOME MUSLIM

GROUPS IN GREAT BRITAIN THAT

HAVE DONE SO.

BUT WHAT ABOUT MOSQUES

AROUND THE WORLD TO SAY, NO,

THIS IS IS NOT OUR

RELIGION.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM THEM.

AND IN UNTIL WE HEAR FROM

THEM, I THINK THIS KIND OF

HOME-GROWN TERRORISM,

BECAUSE THE NEWS REPORT SAYS

THESE MEN WERE BORN AND

RAISED IN GREAT BRITAIN, SO

THIS IS ONE OF THOSE LONE

WOLF TERRORISM ATTACKS THAT

SEEMS TO BE JUST SPONTANEOUS

BECAUSE OF THEIR RELIGION.

WELL, HERE AT HOME, THE

MASSIVE TORNADO IN OKLAHOMA

TUESDAY MAY HAVE CAUSED MORE

THAN $2 BILLION WORTH OF

DAMAGES, AND CBN'S

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS ON

THE SCENE TO HELP THE STORM

SURVIVORS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: FOR MANY IN

THE TIGHT-KNIT COMMUNITY OF

MOORE --

I ONLY KNOW OF ONE THING

THAT IS 100%, AND THAT IS

JESUS CHRIST.

Reporter: TELLING WHERE

THEY WERE WHERE THE TORNADO

HIT IS IS LIKE THERAPY.

LESTER SHOWS US THE STORM

SHELTER BEHIND HIS HOUSE OF

MORE THAN 20 YEARS.

HE CALLED HIS WIFE FROM WORK

AND TOLD HER TO TAKE

COVERMENT.

10 OR 15 SECONDS LATER, I

HEARD THE TRAIN COMING IN.

AND THEN I HEARD KA-BOOM!

Reporter: LESTER KNEW

EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED.

THE OLD OAK TREE IN HIS

BACKYARD CRUSHED THE

SHELTER'S CONCRETE TOP.

WHAT HE DIDN'T KNOW IS IF

HIS WIFE WAS DEAD OR ALIVE.

Reporter: WHAT WAS

GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND WHEN

YOU HEARD THAT KA-BOOM?

AM I GOING TO BE ABLE TO

TALK TO MY WIFE OF 39

YEARS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T

BELIEVE IN MIRACLES, BUT I

DO AND I ALWAYS HAVE.

Reporter: STANDING ON A

STREET LIKE THIS, YOU BEGAN

TO SEE HOW INDISCRIMINATE

THE TORNADO WAS.

THIS HOUSE IS COMPLETELY

LEVEL.

BUT IF YOU LOOK RIGHT ACROSS

THE STREET, THE STRUCTURE IS

STILL STANDING.

BUT THE ONE THING THESE

SCENES ARE DOING IS IS

BRINGING PEOPLE AWAY.

>

LESS THAN 500 FEET AWAY,

AND WE COULD HAVE HAD

NOTHING.

Reporter: HE FELT THE

NEED TO HELP, IN SPITE OF

HIS OWN PERSONAL HARDSHIP.

I HAVE NO WORK RIGHT

NOW.

I WAS LAID OFF OF MY JOB ON

FRIDAY, SO I'VE GOT NOTHING

BUT TIME ON MY HANDS.

Reporter: DAVID IS JUST

ONE OF THE MANY VOLUNTEERS

WITH "OPERATION BLESSING,"

WHICH IS ON THE GROUND

OFFERING DISASTER RELIEF IN

THE FORM OF FOOD, LABOR, AND

PRAYERS.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

TEAMED UP WITH HIGHLAND

BAPTIST CHURCH.

THE PASTOR WATCHED AS THE

TORNADO SPIRALLED TOWARDS OF

CHURCH AND TURNED AT THE

LAST MINUTE.

HE BELIEVES IT WAS SPARED AT

THE LAST MINUTE.

PART OF THE REASON IS SO

WE COULD BE BE A HUB AND BE

ABLE TO LOVE ON PEOPLE.

Reporter: AND FOR THOSE

RECEIVING THEIR HELP, IT

MEANS THE WORLD.

JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS,

MOORE, OKLAHOMA.

Gordon: IF YOU WANT TO

HELP THE VICTIMS OF THAT

TERRIBLE TRAGEDY, ALL YOU IS

TO DO IS GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO HELP.

I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

A PORTION OF EVERY GIFT

GOES INTO "OPERATION

BLESSING" TO HELP THE

NEEDY.

AND 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 DO THAT, JUST

CALL US.

1-800-759-0700.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Gordon: IN A STRONG

ECONOMY, FLIPPING HOUSES CAN

BE A PROFITABLE BUSINESS,

AND THAT WAS TRUE FOR JEFF.

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.

AND 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 BUSINESSES

FLIPPING HOUSES.

AT THAT TIME, I FELT LIKE

ME, ME, ME, AND NOT RELYING

ON GOD.

I DIDN'T REALLY BELIEVE IN

TITHING -- 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 DOWNTURN, JEFF WAS

STUCK WITH A HOUSE THAT

WON'T SELL.

WEEKS TURNED INTO MONTHS,

AND MONTHS INTO A YEAR.

SO I WAS IN A POSITION THAT

NO MATTER WHAT THE PRICE, I

HAD TO SELL.

I LOST NEARLY 100 GRAND.

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 I NEEDED TO START

PUTTING GOD FIRST.

Reporter: JEFF STARTED

TITHING TO HIS CHURCH, AND

THEN WENT ON LINE AND SIGNED

UP WITH PLEDGE EXPRESS TO

GIVE MONTHLY TO CBN.

IN THE BEGINNING IT WAS

KIND OF TOUGH, 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

TO 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 THINK YOU

HAVE THE SECRET?

AND I SAID, WHAT DO YOU YOU

MEAN.

HE SAID, 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

THAT 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 WHAT

THE BIBLE SAYS, "BLESSED ARE

ALL WHO FEAR THE LORD AND

WHO WALK IN HIS WAYS.

YOU WILL EAT THE FRUIT OF

YOUR LABOR.

THUS IS IS THE MAN BLESSED

WHO FEARS THE LORD."

JEFF SAID, OKAY, I'M GOING

TO START TRUSTING GOD, AND

I'M GOING TO START TRUSTING

HIM WITH MY MONEY, AND HE

GOT THE TURNAROUND.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF

YOU JUST TRUST HIM.

WHEN CHAD HAD OPEN-HEART

SURGERY, HE WAS OUT OF WORK

FOR FOUR MONTHS, BUT EVEN

WITHOUT CHAD'S INCOME, HIS

FAMILY PAID ALL OF THEIR

BILLS ON TIME, AND THEY

NEVER RAN OUT OF MONEY.

HERE IS HOW THEY DID IT.

Reporter: CHAD AND KIM

BUSHY ARE A HARD-WORKING

COUPLE WHO LIVE OFF THEIR

FARM.

ALONG WITH THEIR CHICKENS,

LLAMAS, AND GOATS.

I BEGGED MY HUSBAND FOR A

GOAT.

AND HE SAID YOU CAN HAVE A

GOAT IF YOU DO SOMETHING

WITH IT.

AND SO WE ACTUALLY MADE LOTS

OF THINGS.

CHEESE ANDIZE CREAM.

>AND ICE CREAM.

Reporter: A FEW YEARS

EARLIER, CHAD DEVELOPED

HEART DISEASE AND HAD TO

HAVE OPEN-HEART SURGERY.

HE WAS UNABLE TO WORK FOR

FOUR MONTHS.

IN SPITE OF THE FINANCIAL

CHALLENGES, CHAD AND KIM

CONTINUED TO TITHE AND GIVE

TO CBN FROM THE MONEY THEY

MADE, SELLING SOAP MADE FROM

GOAT MILK.

AS THEY GAVE, GOD PROVIDED.

IT WOULD ALWAYS SEEM LIKE

ANY TIME WE WERE IN REAL

NEED, SOMEONE WOULD CALL AND

SAY, HEY, I NEED 10 BARS OF

SOAP AND WE WOULD HAVE WHATPç

WE NEEDED.

Reporter: WHILE CHAD

WAS LAID UP FROM SURGERY,

FRIENDS FROM CHURCH PUT

THEIR MONEY TOGETHER AND

TOOK CARE OF THEIR BILLS AND

BOUGHT THE FAMILY

GROCERIES.

WE HAD ABOUT $1,000 IN

VISA GIFT CARDS AND ANOTHER

$500 IN LOCAL FOOD CARDS.

Reporter: AND WHEN THEY

RAN OUT OF FEED TO FEED

THEIR

ANIMALS, A NEIGHBOR

HAPPENED TO CALL AND ASKED

CHAD IF THEY NEEDED ABOUT

$400 WORTH OF HAY.

I SAID, I CAN'T PAY YOU.

HE SAID PAY WHEN YOU GET THE

MONEY.

I HAD SO MUCH HAY, OUR

ENTIRE LOFT WAS FULL.

Reporter: THE BUSHYS

HAVE ADOPTED THREE CHILDREN,

AND THEY'RE ALL IN COLLEGE

NOW.

I LOVE HOW THEY SUPPORT

THE ORPHANS AND CARE FOR THE

ORPHANS, AND FEED THEM AND

CLOTHE THEM.

Reporter: AND THEIR

9-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER,

ELIZABETH, IS LEARNING TO

GIVE, TOO.

IN FACT, SHE LOVES CBN SO

MUCH, THAT INSTEAD OF SAVING

HER MONEY FOR A PONY, SHE

GAVE HER $20 TO CBN.

I KEPT ON WATCHING CBN,

AND I FELT LIKE A BIG PAIN

IN MY HEART, THAT YOU NEED

TO GIVE.

I TALKED TO MY MOM AND DAD

ABOUT IT, AND THEY SAID YOU

CAN GIVE.

SHE WROTE OUT THE CHECK AND

I SENT IT IN THE MAIL.

I STARTED A GIVING JAR FOR

THE CBN.

IT BLESSES ME SO MUCH TO

SEE OUR DAUGHTER GIVING AND

UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS

IMPORTANT, TO UNDERSTAND THE

PRINCIPLES OF OBEYING GOD'S

WORD.

Reporter: THE BUSHYS

BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN'T

OUTGIVE GOD.

THAT'S WHY THEY RECENTLY

INCREASED THEIR GIVING TO

CBN.

ONLY GOD KNOWS HOW MANY

APPLES YOU CAN GET OUT OF

ONE SEED.

BUT IF YOU GIVE TO GOD, AND

SOW INTO CBN, YOU'LL NEVER

SEE THE END OF THE

BLESSING.

I WANT TO TELL OTHER KIDS

YOU SHOULD GIVE, BECAUSE IF

YOU GIVE, IT SHALL BLESS

GOD.

Gordon: HERE IS WHAT

THE BIBLE SAYS: "I WANT YOU

TO SHARE YOUR FOOD WITH THE

HUNGER, AND TO WELCOME

WANDERS INTO YOUR HOME, GIVE

CLOTHES TO THOSE WHO NEED

THEM.

IF YOU DO THOSE THINGS, YOUR

SALVATION WILL COME LIKE THE

DAWN.

THE LORD WILL ANSWER, YES, I

AM HERE, AND HE WILL QUICKLY

REPLY."

CHAD, ELIZABETH -- THEY ALL

UNDERSTAND THIS FROM A VERY

PRACTICAL STANDPOINT.

BECAUSE THEY OPENED THEIR

HOME, THEY BROUGHT IN

ORPHANS, AND THEY SHARED

WITH THE POOR AND THE NEEDY,

AND GOD ANSWERED THEIR

PRAYERS, AND GOD PROVIDED

FOR THEM IN THEIR TIME OF

NEED.

HE WILL DO THAT FOR YOU IF

YOU JUST TRUST HIM.

I HAVE SOME GREAT NEWS.

SOME EXISTING CBN PARTNER,

LIKE CHAD AND KIM, SAY WE

LOVE GIVING AND WE LOVE

LIVING A LIFE OF

GENEROSITY.

AND THEY WANT TO CHALLENGE

YOU, WHICH MEANS THEY'LL

MATCH YOUR DOLLAR, DOLLAR

FOR DOLLAR.

$50,000.

LORD, WE ASK FOR YOUR

BLESSING AND WE ASK FOR

MULTIPLICATION.

WE KNOW YOUR WORD OVER THEM

IS TRUE, AND YOU WILL OPEN

THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN AND

POUR OUT BLOO BLESSINGS

THEY CANNOT CONTAIN.

FOR THOSE WATCHING, MAKING

DECISIONS, JUST SPEAK TO

THEM AND ENCOURAGE THEM.

WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, A $50,000

CHALLENGE.

THAT MEANS EXISTLY CBN

DONORS WILL MATCH YOUR GIFT,

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS

A DAY, AND YOU JOIN WITH

TENSS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

WHO WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD

TODAY.

THEY WANT TO HELP PEOPLE.

IF THAT'S YOU, GIVE US A

CALL, 1-800-759-0700.

SOME OF YOU SAY I CAN GIVE

MORE THAN "700 CLUB," AND

WE'VE GOT "700 CLUB" GOLD,

$40.

THOUSAND CLUB IS I $1,000 A

YEAR, $84.

AND 2500 CLUB IS IS $2500 A

YEAR, AND FOUNDER'S CLUB IS

$5,000.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WE'VE GOT

ANOTHER REASON FOR YOU TO

CALL.

WE HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL

FOR YOU.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," WE WANT TO GIVE YOU

THIS BRAND NEW D.V.D. CALLED

"OUR FATHER."

IN IT YOU'RE GOING TO LEARN

ABOUT HISTORY'S MOST

POWERFUL PRAYER AND HOW YOU

CAN USE IT TO CHANGE YOUR

LIFE.

Gordon: HE HEALED THE

SICK, WALKED ON WATER, AND

REBUKED THE STORM.

JESUS PERFORMED MIRACLES

THAT CHANGED THE WORLD, AND

HE SHARED THE SECRET TO THAT

POWER WITH YOU AND ME.

IEGZ

Terry: IF YOU'RE LIKE

ME, YOU'VE KNOWN THE LORD'S

PRAYER, AND EVEN IT PRAYED

IT, FOR YEARS IN YOUR OWN

LIFE.

BUT WATCHING THIS D.V.D.

OPENED MY EYES OF WHY JESUS

TOLD US TO PRAY IT THIS

WAY.

THIS IS CALLED "OUR FATHER,

KEYS TO THE LORD'S PRAYER,"

AND WE'RE GOING TO SEND IT

TO YOU WHEN YOU CALL AND

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU IN

ADVANCE FOR CARING ABOUT

OTHER PEOPLE AND WANTING TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Gordon: WHEN TODD LOST

HIS JOB, HIS WIFE WENT FROM

HOME-MAKER TO BREAD WINNER.

ALL SHE COULD FIND WAS

PART-TIME FEEDING JOBS.

AT ONE POINT, SHE HAD TO

FEED HER FAMILY WITH FOOD

OTHER PEOPLE HAD HAD THROWN

AWAY.

Reporter: DANA NEVER

THOUGHT IT WOULD COME TO

THIS, THAT HER FAMILY

FINANCES WERE HIT ROCK

BOTTOM.

IT HAPPENED WHEN HER HUSBAND

TODD LOST HIS JOB BECAUSE OF

A DRUG ADDICTION.

HE WENT INTO REHAB, AND DANA

STARTED CLEANING HOUSES AND

CORPORATE APARTMENTS JUST TO

MAKE ENDS MEET.

WHEN YOU LOSE EVERYTHING,

AND YOU HAVE NOT JUST

YOURSELF, BUT YOUR CHILDREN

TO PROVIDE FOR AND YOUR

RESPONSIBLE FOR, NOTHING IS

BENEATH YOU.

Reporter: MANY OF THE

APARTMENTS DANA CLEANED HAD

JUST BEEN VACATED.

OFTEN SHE FOUND UNOPENED

FOOD THAT WAS LEFT BEHIND,

THAT SHE WAS ALLOWED TO TAKE

HOME.

THERE WAS LOTS OF THINGS

I WAS ABLE TO TAKE HOME TO

MY FAMILY AND MAKE MEALS OUT

OF.

IT WAS LIKE MANA FROM

HEAVEN.

Reporter: DANA

REMEMBERS THE TOUGH CHOICES

SHE WAS FORCED TO MAKE.

I WAS REALLY TORN BETWEEN

ARE WE GOING TO HAVE GAS

MONEY TO GET TO THE NEXT JOB

THAT IS GOING TO GIVE ME

MONEY, OR ARE WE GOING TO

HAVE MILK FOR THEIR CEREAL.

AND I CHOSE THE GAS.

Reporter: DANA WAS

DESPERATE FOR ANSWERS.

SHE STARTED WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB," WHERE SHE HEARD

ABOUT THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

WHAT IT TAUGHT ME WAS

THAT I COULD SOW INTO THE

KINGDOM, AND IT OPENS THE

DOOR TO GOD'S BLESSINGS TO

START MOVING IN OUR LIVES.

Reporter: DANA STARTED

TITHING OFF OF THE LITTLE

BIT SHE MADE CLEANING

APARTMENTS.

SHE ALSO STARTED GIVING TO

CBN.

NOT LONG AFTER THAT, DANA

SAYS GOD PROVIDED HER WITH A

CLEANING

JOB THAT TOOK CARE

OF THE NEXT MONTH'S RENT.

IT WAS EXACTLY $500 SHE

PAID ME FOR THAT JOB.

GOD KNEW MY NEED, AND GOD

PROVIDED A WAY FOR ME TO

MEET THAT NEED.

Reporter: DANE A NA

DANA SAYS GOD ALWAYS

SUPPLIED THEIR EVERY NEED.

EVENTUALLY HER HUSBAND BEAT

HIS DRUG ADDICTION AND WENT

BACK TO WORK.

LIFE NOW IS SO EXCITING.

IT IS A TRULY ABUNDANT

LIFE.

Reporter: TODAY THEY

BOTH HAVE STEADY JOBS AND

THEY BOTH GIVE TO CBN AT

"THE 700 CLUB" GOLD

MEMBERS.

JUST RECENTLY THEY BOUGHT

THEIR FIRST HOME.

WHEN WE WALKED IN THE

DOOR AND PUT THE KEY IN, I

CARRIED MY WIFE IN, TO LOOK

UP AND SEE THE LIGHT COMING

THROUGH THE BIG WINDOW IS

UNREAL.

I ASKED FOR A POND, AND GOD

GAVE US A LAKE.

AND SO ME AND MY SON GO

FISHING A LOT.

WE ALL GO FISHING, BUT GOD

GAVE US THIS HOUSE.

MATTHEW 6: 33, WHEN YOU

SET YOUR EYES ON GOD, HE

KNOWS THE DESIRES OF OUR

HEART AND OUR NEEDS, BUT HE

GIVES THAT AND SO MUCH MOR.

Gordon: LITION TO

LISTEN TO THE WORDS OF

JESUS: "DON'T WORRY ABOUT

HAVING ENOUGH FOOD OR

CLOTHING."

HE WILL GIVE YOU EVERYTHING

YOU NEED IF YOU LIVE FOR HIM

AND MAKE THE KINGDOM OF GOD

YOUR PRIMARY CONCERN.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT DANA

DID.

SHE SAID, I'M GOING TO TRUST

GOD.

WE'RE GOING THROUGH A VERY

DIFFICULT TIME, AND I NEED

TO TRUST HIM, AND I NEED TO

TRUST HIM ON A DAILY BASIS.

AND GOD CAME THROUGH FOR

HER.

AND HE'LL COME THROUGH FOR

YOU IF YOU JUST TRUST HIM.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS JUST $20 A MONTH, 65

CENTS A DAY.

WER DAY.

JOIN WITH TENS OF THOUSANDS

OF PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE A

BLESSING IN THE WORLD.

WE TRAIN LOCAL CHRISTIANS

HOW TO PREACH THE GOSPEL ON

TELEVISION, IN THEIR OWN

LANGUAGE, USING TESTIMONY OF

WHAT JESUS IS DOING IN THEIR

OWN COUNTRY, AND THEN

LEADING THEM IN A PRAYER OF

SALVATION, INTRARESULT THE

RESULTS ARE INCREDIBLE.

PEOPLE ARE FINDING JESUS BY

THE MILLIONS, ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

ALL BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE

YOU WHO SAY, YES, I WANT TO

GIVE; I WANT TO BE BE A PART

OF IT.

IF THAT'S YOU, CALL US RIGHT

NOW, 1-800-759-0700.

WHEN STEVE AND SANDRA BOUGHT

A NEW HOUSE, THEY THOUGHT

THEIR OLD ONE WOULD SELL

QUICKLY.

THEN THE HOUSING MARKET

CRASHED, AND THEY FOUND

THEMSELVES WITH TWO

MORTGAGES AND SEVEN

CHILDREN.

Reporter: RAISING SEVEN

ADOPTE

D

CHILDREN ISN'T EASY,

BUT CBN PARTNERS STEVE AND

SANDRA HOPE SAY IT IS WORTH

IT.

WE ARE HELPING CHANGE THE

DESTINY IN THE COURSE OF A

CHILD'S LIFE.

AND

SO THAT BECAME THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING FOR US.

WE ACTUALLY GOT OUR FIRST

FOUR WITHIN 15 MONTHS.

SO WE SAY WE WENT FROM ZERO

TO FOUR IN 15 MONTHS.

Reporter: THE YOUNG

FAMILY QUICKLY OUTGREW THEIR

SMALL HOME.

THEY BOUGHT A BIGGER HOUSE,

EVEN THOUGH THEY HADN'T SOLD

THEIR OLD ONE, BUT THE

HOUSING MARKET IT WAS

BOOMING, SO THEY WEREN'T

CONCERNED.

WE ASSUMED WE WOULD SELL

QUICKLY.

AND HAVE THIS BIG HOME AND

BE DEBT-FREE FROM A MORTGAGE

IN A COUPLE OF YEARS.

IT WAS THIS WONDERFUL MASTER

PLAN THAT DID NOT WORK OUT

AT ALL.

Reporter: THAT'S

BECAUSE THE HOUSING MARKET

CRASHED.

THEY WERE UNABLE TO SELL

THEIR FIRST HOME, AND NOW

THEY CAN STUCK WITH TWO

MORTGAGES.

THEY QUICKLY BURNED THROUGH

THEIR SAVINGS.

NOW WE'RE AT A PLACE

WHERE WE WERE TRYING TO

AVOID FORECLOSURE BY TRYING

TO DO WHATEVER WE COULD TO

MAKE THE PAYMENTS.

THAT MEANT WE WOULD SELL

ANYTHING WE COULD FIND

AROUND THE HOUSE THAT WE

WEREN'T USING OR DIDN'T

NEED.

WE ACTUALLY SOLD BOTH OF

OUR CARS, LITERALLY, TO PAY

THE MORTGAGE.

Reporter: THINGS WERE

TIGHT FOR THE FAMILY AND

THEY HAD TO CUT BACK ON

EVERYTHING, EXCEPT WHAT THEY

GAVE TO THEIR CHURCH AND TO

CBN.

WE WOULD NEVER CUT BACK

ON TITHES.

THAT'S SOMETHING YOU TR TO

DO.

Reporter: AT ONEPOINT

THEY INCREASED THEIR GIVING

TO CBN.

THE LORD SPOKE TO ME

DURING A TELETHON THAT CBN

WAS DOING TO INCREASE OUR

MONTHLY GIVING.

IN THE NATURAL, IT WAS NUTS,

ABSOLUTELY NUTS, BUT WE DID

IT.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

IT WAS A LONG, TOUGH

JOURNEY, THEY TRUSTED GOD

WOULD PROVIDE, AND HE DID.

WE DIDN'T REALLY GO

WITHOUT.

WE NEVER WENT WITHOUT A MEAL

OR WITHOUT CLOTHES OR

WITHOUT A ROOF OVER OUR

HEAD.

GOD ALWAYS PROVIDED.

Reporter: THEY SAY HE

EVEN REPLACED THEIR CARS

WITH TWO PASSENGER VANS.

TWO DIFFERENT TIMES

WITHIN FOUR MONTHS, TWO

DIFFERENT PEOPLE WALKED UP

TO ME WITH KEYS IN THEIR

HAND.

Reporter: AND THEN

FINALLY A BREAKTHROUGH.

THEY SOLD THE SECOND HOUSE

AND WALKED AWAY FREE AND

CLEAR.

IT WAS PEACE THAT WE

HADN'T EXPERIENCED FOR FOUR

YEARS.

IT WAS A NEW START.

IT WAS FRESH.

Reporter: NOW WITH ONLY

ONE MORTGAGE, STEVE AND

SANDRA PAID OFF THEIR

DEBTS.

THEY EVENTUALLY ADOPTED

THREE MORE CHILDREN.

THEY LOVE CBN, TOO,

ESPECIALLY "SUPERBOOK."

THEY HAVE SINCE MOVED INTO A

HOME BIG ENOUGH FOR ALL OF

THEM, AND THEY WERE ABLE TO

KEEP THEIR FIRST HOME AS A

RENTAL PROPERTY.

THEY BELIEVE IT IS ALL

BECAUSE THEY WERE FAITHFUL

TO GIVE.

WE LEARNED THAT HE WAS

OUR SOURCE, AND HE ALONE.

NOT OUR JOBS, NOT WHAT OTHER

PEOPLE WERE ABLE TO GIVE

US.

THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE

WRESTLING WITH THIS WHOLE DO

I REALLY NEED TO TITHE?

DO I REALLY NEED TO GIVE?

I CAN'T AFFORD TO GIVE.

AND I DON'T KNOW HOW ELSE TO

EXPLAIN IT, BUT TO JUST TEST

THE LORD.

YOU CANNOT OUTGIVE GOD.

Gordon: YOU CAN'T

OUTGIVE HIM.

HERE IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

ABOUT THAT: "BRING ALL OF

THE TITHES INTO THE

STOREHOUSE THAT THERE MAY BE

FOOD IN MY HOUSE, AND PROVE

ME NOW IN THIS, SAYS THE

LORD OF HOPE, IF I WILL NOT

OPEN FOR YOU THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR OUT A

BLESSING THAT THERE WILL NOT

BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE

IT."

MALACHI GOES ON TO SAY: "AND

HE WILL REBUKE THE DEVOUR

FOR YOUR SAKE."

WHAT WAS DEVOURING THEIR

INCOME?

TRYING TO MAINTAIN TWO

MORTGAGES.

BECAUSE THEY SAID WE'RE

GOING TO PROVE GOD, HE IS

GOING TO EVEN COVER OUR

MISTAKES, HE IS GOING TO BE

ABLE TO DO IT ALL FOR US,

AND HE CAME THROUGH FOR

THEM, AND HE'LL COME THROUGH

FOR YOU I IF YOU JUST TRUST

HIM.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

FORGIVENESS AND PROVISION.

GORDON TEACHES US ABOUT THE

MOST IMPORTANT WORDS IN THIS

PRAYER IN THIS NEW D.V.D.,

THE ONES THAT STARTED "OUR

Wendy: ISN'T THAT

NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: EARLIER WE

SHOWED YOU HOW "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS PROVIDING HOPE

AND HELP FOR STORM SURVIVORS

IN MOORE, OKLAHOMA.

JUST LAST WEEK, WE WERE

HELPING PEOPLE IN THE TOWN

OF GRANDBERRY, TEXAS, WHICH

WAS HIT BY A STRING OF 16

TORNADOES IN ONE NIGHT.

I HEARD THE RAIN, AND

THEN I HEARD THE HAIL, AND

THE HAIL WAS HITTING SO MUCH

IT SOUNDED LIKE SOMEBODY WAS

STANDING THERE CHUCKING

ROCKS.

MY DEUTE DAUGHTER CALLED ME

AND SAID, MOM, FIND SOME

PLACE TO HIDE, THE TORNADO

IS COMING.

Reporter: SHE WAS IN

THE PATH OF A DEADLY TORNADO

THAT TORE THROUGH TEXAS.

I LOOKED DOWN AND

THOUGHT, WHERE ARE RE GOING

TWE GOING TO GO.

AND THEN I THOUGHT OF THE

CLOSET.

I WAS ASKING GOD, PLEASE

MAKE IT GO AWAY.

AND I FELT LIKE HE WAS IN

THE CLOSET WITH ME WITH HIS

ARMS AROUND ME.

A FEW MINUTES LATER, THE

SOUNDS LET UP AND I CRAWLED

OUT OF THERE.

Reporter: THIS IS WHAT

WAS LEFT OF HER HOME.

NOT A SINGLE WALL WAS

THERE.

ALL OF HER BELONGINGS

SCATTERED AROUND.

I WAS SO MUCH IN AWE OF

EVERYTHING, I COULD NOT

BELIEVE THE DEVASTATION.

Reporter: JEAN HAD NO

IDEA OF WHAT TO DO TODAY,

BUT RELIEF WAS ON THE WAY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" ARRIVED

SHORTLY AFTER THE STORM.

VOLUNTEERS HELPED HER

SALVAGE THE FEW MOMENTOS

LEFT BEHIND.

I AM SO THANKFUL THERE

ARE SO MANY PEOPLE OUT HERE

THAT REALLY WANT TO HELP,

THAT CARE ABOUT EVERYBODY.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING"

CONTINUES TO WORK IN THE

HARDEST HIT AREAS OF THE

MIDWEST, SENDING HUNDREDS OF

VOLUNTEERS TO HELP PEOPLE

RECOVER AND PROTECT WHAT IS

LEFT OF THEIR HOMES.

JEAN SAYS SHE IS GRATEFUL TO

THE DONORS WHO SUPPORT THE

WORK OF "OPERATION

BLESSING."

KEEP GIVING AND KEEP

GIVING BECAUSE THEY ARE

THERE FOR YOU.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS A

BLESSING.

IT IS A BLESSING.

THANK YOU.

Terry: YOU KNOW, YOU

COME ALONG, YOU CAN WATCH

EFFORT, BUT WHEN IT'S

FINALLY YOUR HOME AND YOUR

FAMILY, YOUR POSSESSIONS, IT

DIFFERENT TURN.

GORDON?

Gordon: IN MOST

COMMUNITIES, THE BIRTH OF A

BABY IS A REASON TO

CELEBRATE.

BUT IN ONE GUATEMALAN TOWN,

ONE BABY'S BIRTH SPREAD FEAR

AND PANIC AMONG THE

NEIGHBORS.

WHEN LESLIE WAS BORN IN

THIS REMOTE VILLAGE IN

GUATEMALA, HER PARENTS KNEW

IMMEDIATELY THEIR BABY'S

LIFE WAS IN DANGER.

MY OWN EXTENDED FAMILY

TOLD ME TO KILL MY

DAUGHTER.

WE THOUGHT SOMEONE MIGHT

BREAK INTO THE HOUSE AND

STEAL HER AND THEN KILL

HER.

Reporter: LESLIE WAS

BORN WITH A CLEFT PALLET.

IN SOME COMMUNITIES LIKE

THIS, LESLIE'S CONDITION WAS

THOUGHT TO BRING A CURSE ON

THE AREA.

IT HAS BEEN REPORTED THAT

FOUR BABIES WITH CLEFT

PALLETS HAVE ALREADY BEEN

KILLED HERE.

WE HID HER.

WE COVERED HER FACE WITH A

BLANKET WHEN WE WENT

OUTSIDE.

BUT AFTER A WHILE, WE

COULDN'T HIDE HER ANYMORE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE

BABY LESLIE FACED OTHER

CHALLENGES, LIKE

MALNUTRITION.

WHEN MY WIFE FED HER, SHE

WOULD CHOKE, TRYING TO

SWALLOW THE MILK.

THE MILK JUST CAME OUT

HER NOSE.

I WONDERED IF SHE MIGHT DIE

IN SPITE OF OUR EFFORTS.

Reporter: WHEN AN

"OPERATION BLESSING" MEDICAL

TEAM CAME TO A NEARBY

VILLAGE, LESLIE'S PARENTS

TOOK HER TO SEE A DOCTOR.

WE QUICKLY SET UP A FREE

SURGERY FOR LESLIE AT A

HOSPITAL IN THE CITY.

IT HAS NOW BEEN A YEAR SINCE

THAT LIFE-CHANGING SURGERY,

AND LESLIE IS DOING GREAT.

IN FACT, WHILE WE WERE

THERE, THE FAMILY HELD A

SPECIAL SERVICE OF

THANKSGIVING IN THE VILLAGE

CHURCH.

WITH MY DAUGHTER'S

SURGERY, YOU HAVE BROUGHT

HAPPINESS TO ME AND TO MY

HUSBAND.

THANK YOU WITH ALL OF MY

HEART FOR WHAT YOU'VE DONE

FOR OUR FAMILY.

Gordon: WHAT AN AMAZING

TRANSFORMATION, TO GO FROM

THE NEIGHBORS ARE GOING TO

COME AND KILL MY DAUGHTER,

TO THAT BEAUTIFUL SMILE.

WONDERFUL LITTLE GIRL A HOPE

IF THAT'S YOU, GIVE US A

CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

WE'VE GOT A $50,000

CHALLENGE, AND WE NEED TO

STOP THAT CLOCK BECAUSE SOME

CBN PARTNERS ARE SAYING

$50,000 ISN'T ENOUGH.

THEY WANT TO ADD $75,000 TO

IT, AND TAKE IT TO

$125,000.

LORD, WE JUST ASK FOR

BLESSING AND ANOINTING OVER

THIS, THAT YOU GIVE THE

INCREASE.

AND FOR THE PARTNERS WHO

PHONES.

THANKS, GORDON.

Wendy: 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., GORDON

TAKES YOU THROUGH THE WORDS

IN "OUR FATHER."

HERE IS WHAT VIEWER HAD TO

SAY.

I STARTED SURFING THE

OTHER DAY.

AND WE SAID THE LORD'S

PRAYER WHEN WE GET IN THE

WATER.

I WATCHED "OUR FATHER"

RECENTLY AND I LOVED IT.

GORDON'S TEACHING STOOD

OUT.

HE IS SHOWING EVERYBODY OR

TEACHING THE STEPS TO

COMMUNICATE WITH GOD.

GOD WANTS US TO BE HAPPY.

HE WANTS US TO ENJOY LIFE.

HE IS OUR FATHER, AND HE

LOVES US.

Wendy: MAYBE YOU'RE

LIKE ME AND YOU'VE BEEN

PRAYING THE LORD'S PRAYER

YOUR ENTIRE LIFE AND NEVER

REALLY REALIZED HOW RICH,

HOW POWERFUL IT TRULY IS

IS.

IT IS IN HERE.

GORDON BREAKS IT DOWN PHRASE

HOW TO PRAY THE WAY JESUS

PRAYED.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

GORDON?

Gordon: THE GOLF COURSE

IS A PLACE TO RELAX AND

SPEND A FEW HOURS WITH

FRIENDS.

FOR ANTHONY GRIFFIN, IT WAS

A PLACE WHERE HE DEVELOPED A

MILLION DOING IDEA.

Reporter: ANTHONY

TRAINED SOLDIERS ON HOW TO

OPERATE MILITARY VEHICLES.

BUT WHEN HE IS NOT AT WORK,

HE IS ON THE GOLF COURSE.

HE IS PASSIONATE ABOUT GOLF

AND EVEN TEACHES KIDS.

IN GOLF, YOU HAVE GOLF

ETIQUETTE.

IN MINISTRY, YOU HAVE

ETIQUETTE, TOO, THE KINGDOM

OF GOD, AND WE HAVE THE

PRINCIPLES AND LAWS OF GOD.

Reporter: INCLUDING THE

PRINCIPLE OF TITHING.

IF I GIVE, I'LL RECEIVE.

BUT YOU DON'T GIVE TO

RECEIVE; YOU GIVE BECAUSE

YOU LOVE GOD.

AND A BLESSING IS PRONOUNCED

ON YOUR LIFE THROUGH YOU

GIVING.

Reporter: FOR ANTHONY,

GIVING INCLUDES GIVING TO

CBNMENT.

> CBN.

THEY'RE TEACHING THE

PRINCIPLES AND PRECEPS OF

GIVING.

Reporter: AND ANTHONY

HAS SEEN BLESSINGS IN A HUGE

WAY.

GOD GAVE HIM THE IDEA FOR A

UNIQUE GOLF SHOE DESIGN.

ONE DAY WHILE I WAS

PLAYING GOLF, I WAS HITTING

THE BALL, AND A TEE FLIPPED

UP AND WENT INTO MY SHOES.

THE TEASE TEES, WHEN YOU

HIT IT, THEY'LL FLIP.

AND THIS FLIPPED INTO MY

SHOE.

I WAS LIKE, WHERE DID MY TEE

GO.

AND THE LORD GAVE ME A

VISION, KEEP IT IN MY SHOE.

Reporter: ANTHONY

DESIGNED A SHOE THAT KEEPS

THE TEE AND BALL MARKER

RIGHT IN THE SHOE.

IN GOLF, YOU HAVE TO DO

EVERYTHING ON THE GROUND.

YOU HAVE TO BEND DOWN

ANYWAY.

Reporter: PRE-ORDERS

CAME FLOODING IN.

HIS FIRST ORDER FROM THE

MANUFACTURER IS 200,000

PAIRS OF SHOES, WITH 500,000

TO FOLLOW.

ANTHONY IS EXPECTED TO MAKE

MILLIONS.

HE IS GRATEFUL GOD GAVE HIM

SUCH AN INNOVATIVE IDEA, AND

HE FEELS THE LORD BLESSED

HIM BECAUSE OF HIS

FAITHFULNESS TO GIVE.

JUST GIVE.

JUST TRUST GOD AND WATCH GOD

WORK.

Gordon: JUST TRUST GOD

TO WORK.

HOW DOES GOD WORK?

YOU SAW IN ANTHONY'S LIFE,

HE GAVE HIM AN IDEA.

HE WANTS US TO BE BLESSED

AND TO PROSPER AS OUR SOULS

PROSPER.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS,

AND YOU CAN TRUST IT.

IF YOU WANT TO TEST GOD WITH

GIVING, GIVE US A CALL,

JUST SAY, I WANT TO BE A

PART OF EVERYTHING CBN IS

DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, FOR ONE

GRANDMOTHER IN THAILAND,

RETIREMENT IS NOT AN

OPTION.

SHE HAS THREE JOBS, TWO

GRANDSONS TO RAISE, AND SHE

DOES MOST OF HER WORK ON A

MOTORCYCLE.

GRANDMA KIA LOVES HER

GRANDSONS.

SHE'S BEEN RAISING THEM

SINCE THEY CAME TO LIVE WITH

HER SEVEN YEARS AGO, AFTER

THEIR PARENTS ABANDONED

THEM.

I REALLY DO LOVE THOSE

BOYS.

I WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR

THEM.

OUR GRANDMA GIVES US FOOD

TO EAT.

WE HELP HER KEEP OUR HOUSE

CLEAN.

SOMETIMES I ALSO HELP HER

WITH HER WORK.

I LOVE MY GRANDMA.

Terry: EVERY DAY

GRANDMA KIA COLLECTS BOTTLES

TO RECYCLE AND GATHERS PALM

LEAVES TO SELL.

SHE USES A MOTORCYCLE WITH A

SIDE CAR TO GET AROUND.

BUT

THAT ONLY BRINGS IN

ABOUT A DOLLAR A DAY.

THEN THE MOTORCYCLE BROKE

DOWN.

SO I WALKED AROUND FROM

6:00 IN THE MORNING TO 6:00

AT NIGHT.

AND I DID ODD JOBS FOR

PEOPLE.

I WENT TO THE PIER AND

PICKED UP THE

FISH THAT THE

FISHERMEN DROPPED ON THE

FLOOR.

Terry: WHEN CBN

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" HEARD

ABOUT GRANDMA KIA, WE

REPAIRED HER MOTORCYCLE SO

SHE COULD COLLECT BOTTLES

AGAIN AND USE IT AS A

MOTORCYCLE TAXI.

FINALLY, WE SET UP A FISH

FARM IN HER BACKYARD SO SHE

COULD RAISE FISH TO SELL.

NOW OUR STOMACHS ARE

ALWAYS FULL.

I WILL NEVER HAVE TO BEG FOR

FOOD AGAIN.

I CANNOT THANK CBN ENOUGH

FOR HELPING ME AND MY

GRANDCHILDREN.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: I HOPE YOU SENSE

WHAT A DIFFERENCE YOU'RE

ABLE TO MAKE IN THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE AS YOU WATCH GRANDMA

KIA'S STORY.

HOW UNBELIEVABLE YOU CAN

BRING THAT KIND OF HOPE INTO

A SITUATION WHERE A

GRANDMOTHER WAS SO

DESPERATELY DOING THE RIGHT

THING, DESPERATELY TRYING TO

RAISE HER BOYS, OR HER

GRANDBOYS, AND GIVE THEM

FOOD TO EAT EVERY DAY, HOPE

FOR A FUTURE.

YOU STEPPED RIGHT INTO THE

MIDDLE OF HER NEED AND

DIDN'T JUST GIVE HER A

HANDOUT.

YOU GAVE HER A HAND-UP AND

THEIR LIVES ARE FOREVER

CHANGED BECAUSE OF YOU.

IF YOU'RE A "THE 700 CLUB"

MEMBER, I WANT TO ASK YOU

TODAY TO CONSIDER GOING UP

TO THE NEXT LEVEL OF

MEMBERSHIP.

WHEN YOU JOIN AT WHATEVER

LEVEL GOD HAS TOLD YOU TO

JOIN, WOULD YOU DO IT USING

SOMETHING WE CALL PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

IT MEANS WE SAVE SOME COSTS

IN PROCESSING, AND SO WE CAN

PUT MORE OF YOUR GIFT INTO

THE LIVES OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU

JUST SAW IN THIS LITTLE

FAMILY.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB," AND I

WANT TO DO IT DOING PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU

IS TO SEND YOU POWER FOR

LIFE TEACHINGS.

YOU'RE GOING TO GET ONE OF

THESE EVERY MONTH.

AND WE THINK THEY'LL BLESS

YOU EVEN AS WERE YOU REACH

EVEN AS YOU TOUCH AND BLESS

OTHERS.

Gordon: HE NEEDED EXTRA

HELP FEEDING HIS FAMILY.

SO HE VISITED A FOOD PANTRY

AND GOT MUCH MORE THAN JUST

GROCERIES.

Reporter: FRANK WILSON

ENJOYS DAYS AT THE BALLPARK

WITH HIS DAUGHTER AND SON.

THIS SINGLE FATHER MAKES

EVERY GAME A PRIORITY

BECAUSE HE KNOWS FIRSTHAND

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING

THERE FOR HIS KIDS.

MY FATHER, HE WAS NOT

AROUND.

I ALWAYS PROMISED MYSELF

GROWING UP THAT I WOULD

NEVER BE LIKE MY FATHER.

Reporter: FRANK OWNS A

SMALL BUSINESS, CLEANING AND

DETAILING NEW HOMES.

WORK WAS STEADY UNTIL THE

ECONOMIC CRISIS HIT A FEW

YEARS AGO, AND JOBS CAME TO

A SUDDEN HALT.

MY BUSINESS WASN'T

ACCOMPLISHING AS MUCH A AS

MUCH AS I WANTED TO.

THERE WERE MANY, MANY WEEKS

I DIDN'T HAVE A PAYCHECK.

Reporter: WHILE DRIVING

HOME, FRANK SAW A SIGN

OFFERING FREE BREAD FROM THE

"OPERATION BLESSING" STORE

HOUSE.

HE STOPPED TO GET SOME FOR

HIS FAMILY.

TIMES WERE TIGHT.

AND I STOPPED TO GET A LOAF

OF BREAD.

THAT'S ALL THAT WAS ON MY

MIND.

Reporter: HE CAME BACK

THE NEXT WEEK AND GOT

GROCERIES AND HOUSEHOLD

SUPPLIES.

WHEN YOU COME HOME WITH

SOME FOOD IN YOUR BASKET,

YOU HAVE SOME APPLES AND

VARIOUS KINDS OF CANNED

FOOD.

IF YOU PUT DOLLARS AND CENTS

TO IT AS THE STORE, IT IS A

LOT.

FOOD IS PROBABLY THE HIGHEST

THING IN THE FAMILY BUDGET.

SO IF YOU SAVE MONEY ON

FOOD, THAT'S AN EXTRA

EXPENSE YOU CAN USE ON

SOMETHING ELSE IN YOUR

HOUSEHOLD.

Reporter: ONE WEEK WHEN

HE PICKED UP FOOD, HE WAS

INVITED TO CHURCH.

I DIDN'T THINK MUCH OF

IT, BUT I DID DECIDE HERE

I'M EATING THE BREAD AND

TAKING THE FOOD, AT LEAST I

CAN GO ONE TIME TO CHURCH.

Reporter: HE WENT TO A

SERVICE THE NEXT SUNDAY, AND

FOUND HIMSELF COMING BACK

EACH WEEK.

WHATEVER WORD THE PASTOR

GAVE OUT, I WOULD COME HOME

AND REREAD IT.

I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT

READING THE BIBLE.

Reporter: HIS FAITH

GREW, AND SOON HIS WHOLE

FAMILY WAS ATTENDING

CHURCH.

HIS DAUGHTER GOES TO SUNDAY

SCHOOL, WHILE HIS SON HELPS

OUT WHEREVER HE CAN.

FRANK SEES THAT THE FOOD

FROM "OPERATION BLESSING"

OPENED THE DOOR TO SOMETHING

MUCH DEEPER.

I BEGAN TO SEE THE BREAD,

NOT AS JUST BREAD WHERE YOU

MAKE A SANDWICH AND ENJOY IT

FOR LUNCH, BUT THE BREAD OF

LIFE.

Reporter: BESIDES

HOLDING WEEKLY FOOD

DISTRIBUTIONS, THEY REACH

OUT TO THOUSANDS THROUGH

LARGE COMMUNITY EVENTS.

HOT MEALS, GROCERIES AND

HEALTH SCREENINGS ARE PRO

PROVIDED AT NO COST.

FRANK WAS SO BLESSED, HE NOW

GIVES BACK BY VOLUNTEERING

AT THE FOOD BANK.

RIGHT HERE IN OUR

NEIGHBORHOOD, PEOPLE ARE

ACTUALLY LITERALLY BEING FED

BY THE FOOD THAT COMES

DIRECTLY FROM THE WAREHOUSE

OF THE "OPERATION

BLESSING."

IT IS JUST GOOD TO KNOW THAT

THEY'RE BACK THERE.

THEY'RE YOU'RE HELPING

HAND.

Gordon: THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

THAT WONDERFUL STORY.

YES, WE RESPOND TO

DISASTERS.

YES, WE HAVE DISASTER TEAMS

THAT GO OUT WHEN THESE

HORRIBLE TORNADOES AND

HURRICANES HIT.

WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE.

BUT WE'RE, ON A REGULAR

BASIS, FEEDING THREE MILLION

AMERICANS EVERY SINGLE

MONTH.

IT'S THOSE WONDERFUL

"OPERATION BLESSING" TRUCKS

THAT GO AROUND AND PROVIDE

THESE FOOD PANTRIES WITH ALL

KINDS OF GOOD SO WE CAN HELP

PEOPLE IN TIME OF NEED.

AND YOU'RE A PART OF IT WHEN

YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE 700

CLUB" BECAUSE A PORTION OF

EVERY GIFT GOES INTO THE

WORK OF "OPERATION

BLESSING."

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, CALL

US NOW, 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF IT.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

WE'VE ALL HEARD THE LORD'S

PRAYER, AND MANY OF US HAVE

PRAYED IT MANY, MANY TIMES,

BUT DO YOU KNOW THE MEANING

BEHIND THE WORDS?

AND WHAT'S THE KEY TO

RELEASING THE POWER OF THIS

PRAYER IN YOUR LIFE?

WELL, GORDON EXPLAINS ALL OF

THAT AND MORE IN HIS LATEST

D.V.D. "OUR FATHER."

Wendy: YOU KNOW, JESUS

TOLD HIS DISCIPLES THIS IS

THE WAY YOU SHOULD PRAY, SO

SHOULDN'T WE ALL WANT TO

LEARN HOW TO PRAY THAT WAY?

GORDON UNLOCKS THE KEYS TO

THE POWER, AND YOU CAN LEARN

TO PRAY THE WAY JESUS

PRAYED.

IT IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU CALL RIGHT NOW AND JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH.

MAYBE YOU CAN DO A LITTLE

MORE, $40, A GOLD LEVEL.

WE'RE GOING TO BLESS YOU BY

SENDING YOU THREE OF THESE

D.V.D.s.

ONE FOR YOU YOU AND TWO TO

GIVE AWAY.

IF YOU TAKE IT UP TO THE

THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL, $84 A

MONTH, OR MAYBE A LITTLE

MORE, WE'RE REALLY GOING TO

BLESS YOU WITH FIVE

D.V.D.s, FOR ALL OF THE

PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE YOU

REALLY WANT TO BLESS.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIG

CHALLENGE.

IT'S $125,000, WITH LESS

THAN 10 MINUTES LIST ON THE

CLOCK.

IF YOU GO TO YOUR PHONES

RIGHT NOW, YOUR PLEDGE WILL

BE MATCHED DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR, SO DON'T DELAY; THIS

IS THE TIME.

TERRY?

Terry: ALL OVER THE

WORLD, "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

PROVIDES SAFE HOMES FOR

AT-RISK CHILDREN.

IN CHINA, A HOME LIKE THIS

KEPT ONE YOUNG GIRL FROM

BEING KIDNAPPED BY

TRAFFICKERS.

AFTER SASHA'S FATHER DIED OF

A HEART ATTACK, A GROUP OF

MEN PAID HER A VISIT.

THEY WEREN'T THERE TO OFFER

CONDOLENCES.

THEY WERE THERE TO TRAFFIC

HER.

HER NEIGHBOR HEARD ABOUT THE

TRAFFICKERS' PLANS.

THEY LIED TO SASHA AND

TOLD HER THEY WOULD PROVIDE

HER AND HER MOTHER WITH A

NEW HOME.

BUT THEY WERE PLANNING TO

SELL THEM BOTH FOR MONEY.

Terry: TRAFFICKERS

THRIVE IN THIS REGION

BECAUSE IT IS SO REMOTE AND

IMPOVERISHED.

SASHA HERSELF WOULD HAVE

BEEN WORTH JUST A FEW

HUNDRED DOLLARS.

THEY PLANNED TO IS SELL

HER AS A CHILD BRIDE.

SHE WOULD FACE A LIFE OF

BEATINGS AND INTIMIDATION TO

KEEP HER FROM ESCAPING.

IT ALWAYS FELT LIKE THEY

WERE BAD GUYS WATCHING ME

AND FOLLOWING ME.

I DESPERATELY WANTED SOMEONE

TO SAVE ME.

Terry: MRS. GONG WANTED

THE SAME.

SO SHE TOOK SASHA'S MOTHER

TO AN ELDERLY HOME, AND THEN

MOVED SASHA MILES AWAY, TO A

SAFE HOUSE, RUN BY CBN AND

"ORPHANS' PROMISE."

WHEN SHE FIRST CAME HERE,

SHE WAS PALE AND SKINNY.

SO WE MET HER PHYSICAL

NEEDS, AND WE TOLD HER ABOUT

THE LOVE OF THE LORD, AND WE

TAUGHT HER TO READ THE

BIBLE.

SINCE THEN, SHE HAS RECEIVED

THE LORD AS HER SAVIOR, AND

NOW HER LIFE IS MUCH

BETTER.

I'M NOT AFRAID ANYMORE.

I KNOW THE LORD WILL BE WITH

ME AND ALWAYS PROTECT ME.

I HAVE MY OWN BED, AND I

SLEEP WELL EVERY NIGHT.

IT IS LIKE I HAVE A REAL

FAMILY.

I'M REALLY GRATEFUL THE LORD

GAVE ME A HOME LIKE THIS.

I THANK CBN AND "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," BECAUSE WITHOUT

YOUR HELP, THERE WOULD BE NO

SAFE HOME FOR SASHA, OR ANY

OF THESE CHILDREN.

YOU HAVE GIVEN THEM A PLACE

WHERE THERE IS LOVE AND

SUPPORT.

AND THE CHILDREN'S HEARTS

ARE BEING HEALED.

YOU ARE TRULY SERVANTS OF

THE LORD.

Terry: YOU CAN SEE IT

IN SASHA'S FACE.

CAN YOU IMAGINE HER FATHER

DIES, A TREMENDOUS LOSS TO A

FAMILY IN CHINA, AND THEN

SHE IS FACED WITH THE FEAR

OF KNOWING THAT PEOPLE ARE

OUT TO DO HARM TO HER AND TO

HER MOTHER.

AND THEY HAVE NO

PROTECTION.

THANKS TO HER NEIGHBOR, SHE

WAS BROUGHT TO A SAFE

PLACE.

HER MOM IS LIVING IN A SAFE

PLACE.

SASHA HAS A GREAT HOME.

SHE IS LIVING WITH HOPE AND

DREAMS OF A FUTURE.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING THAT

POSSIBLE.

THAT'S THE KIND OF

DIFFERENCE YOU CAN MAKE WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE ASKING YOU

TO DO RIGHT NOW, GO TO YOUR

PHONE AND CALL.

MANY OF YOU I KNOW HAVE BEEN

FAITHFUL "700 CLUB" PARTNERS

FOR SO LONG.

WOULD YOU CONSIDER GOING UP

TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

WE TALKED ABOUT "700 CLUB"

GOLD, A GIFT OF $40.

I KNOW THE THOUSAND CLUB MAY

SEEM INTIMIDATING TO YOU AT

$84, BUT THAT IS $21 A

WEEK.

MANY OF US CAN DO THAT.

AND I WANT TO ASK YOU TO

CONSIDER MOVING UP TODAY SO

WE CAN HELP EVEN MORE PEOPLE

LIKE SASHA AND HER MOTHER.

THERE ARE PEOPLE AROUND THE

WORLD WHO SIMPLY ARE WAITING

FOR HOPE TO COME INTO THEIR

DESPERATE CIRCUMSTANCES, AND

WE CAN BE THAT HOPE IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

SO CALL NOW.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700, OR LOG

ON TO CBN.COM.

GORDON?

Gordon: IN PARTS OF

INDIA, CHRISTIANS LIVE IN

DANGER BECAUSE OF THEIR

FAITH.

ONE FAMILY SUFFERED

DEVASTATING LOSSES, SO THEY

PRAYED TO GOD FOR HELP.

AND A TEAM FROM CBN ARRIVED

IN THEIR VILLAGE WITH THE

ANSWER TO THEIR PRAYERS.

Reporter: IN HINDU

RADICALS IN INDIA ATTACKED

CHRISTIANS WHO REFUSED TO

RENOUNCE THEIR FAITH IN

JESUS.

SOME OF HIS FAMILY MEMBERS

COULDN'T ESCAPE.

MY SON AND

DAUGHTER-IN-LAW WERE CAUGHT

AND BURNED ALIVE.

BUT WE TOOK THE CHILDREN AND

RAN INTO THE JUNGLE.

WHEN WE CAME BACK, WE SAW

OUR PARENTS' BURNED BODY.

EVERYONE TOLD US THEY WENT

TO BE BE WITH JESUS.

AT THAT TIME, I WAS JUST

EIGHT YEARS OLD.

Reporter: OVER THE NEXT

FOUR YEARS, GIVINDA AND HIS

WIFE WORKED HARD, CUTTING

WOOD AND BUILDING FENCES, SO

THEY CAN TAKE CARE OF THEIR

GRANDCHILDREN.

BUT THEIR OLD AGE WAS MAKING

IT MORE DIFFICULT EVERY

DAY.

WE SUFFERED A LOT

FINANCIALLY AFTER THE

ATTACK.

WE STOPPED SENDING OUR

GRANDDAUGHTERS TO SCHOOL

BECAUSE WE DID NOT HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY ALL OF

THE SCHOOL SUPPLIES.

WE CRIED OUT TO GOD ALMOST

EVERY DAY.

I BOWED DOWN AT THE FEET

OF JESUS AND PRAYED THAT HE

WOULD GIVE MY GRANDPARENTS

ENOUGH STRENGTH TO CONTINUE

THEIR HARD WORK.

Reporter: THEN CBN CAME

TO THEIR VILLAGE AND OFFERED

A FREE AFTER-SCHOOL

PROGRAM.

WHEN MY GRANDCHILDREN

JOINED THE PROGRAM, THEY

RECEIVED ALL OF THEIR SCHOOL

SUPPLIES.

THEY WERE ALSO ABLE TO GO

BACK TO SCHOOL AFTER CBN

PAID THE TUITION FEES.

Reporter: AND KNOWING

THAT GAVINDA AND HIS WIFE

COULDN'T HANDLE THEIR

STRENUOUS JOBS MUCH LONGER,

WE BUILT THEM A STORE SO

THEY CAN EASILY SUPPORT

THEIR FAMILY.

WE WERE SO EXCITED WHEN

CBN STOCKED IT WITH

DIFFERENT ITEMS TO SELL.

I THANK CBN SO MUCH FOR

THEIR HELP.

JESUS DID ALL OF THIS FOR

US.

HE IS IS VERY IMPORTAN VERY

IMPORTANT IN OUR LIVES

BECAUSE HE DIED FOR US ON

THE CROSS AND ROSE AGAIN.

WE LOVE JESUS SO MUCH

BECAUSE HE LOVED US SO

MUCH.

Gordon: THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "700

CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

PEOPLE IN THAT FAMILY.

Terry: IN HONDURAS, ONE

OUT OF EVERY FOUR CHILDREN

SUFFERS FROM CHRONIC

MALNUTRITION.

CHILDREN LIKE WILSON, WHO

OFTEN GO TO BED HUNGRY,

UNTIL "OPERATION BLESSING"

ARRIVED IN THIS VILLAGE.

TAKE A LOOK.

I LOOKED FOR A BASKET,

BUT THERE WEREN'T ANY.

I WENT TO BED HUNGRY.

Reporter: 12-YEAR-OLD

WILSON HAD EATEN THE LAST

TORTILLA THE NIGHT BEFORE.

IT HAD BEEN HIS ONLY MEAL OF

THE DAY.

NOW WITH THE CORN FLOUR

GONE, THERE WAS NO FOOD FOR

ANYONE.

I PRAYED GOD TO HELP MY

FATHER TO HAVE MONEY TO BUY

FOOD.

Reporter: A BLIGHT HAD

WIPED OUT THE FAMILY'S

POTATO CROP.

THAT MEANT LOSING SIX

MONTHS' INCOME.

I SAW MY FATHER VERY SAD,

AND MY MOTHER CRYING AND

PRAYING ALL OF THE TIME.

Reporter: WILSON

SOMETIMES WENT TO FIND WORK

WITH HIS DAD, BUT WORKING

TOGETHER, THEY ONLY EARNED A

FEW DOLLARS A DAY, BARELY

ENOUGH TO BUY FOOD.

THE FAMILY'S PASTOR KNEW

ABOUT THEIR SITUATION AND

CALLED "OPERATION

BLESSING."

SOON WE BROUGHT LARGE SACKS

OF SEEDLING POTATOES AND

FERTILIZER FOR EVERYONE.

WILSON GRABBED HIS OLD WORK

BOOTS AND TOOLS AND WENT TO

HELP HIS DAD WITH THE

PLANTING.

THE SMALL COMMUNITY POODLE

THEIR RESOURCES AS THEY

WAITED FOR THE NEW CROP TO

GROW.

FINALLY THE POTATOES WERE

READY TO HARVEST.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH

BIG POTATOES LIKE THOSE.

THEY WERE HUGE.

Reporter: WILSON'S DAD

SOLD HIS ENTIRE HARVEST FOR

A GREAT PROFIT.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SIX

MONTHS, THE FAMILY HAD

PLENTY TO EAT.

AND WITH THE EXTRA MONEY

THEY EARNED, WILSON'S DAD

WAS ABLE TO BUY HIS SON A

NEW PAIR OF BOOTS.

THE FOOD MOM AND DAD GIVE

US NOW IS DELICIOUS.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR HELPING MY

FAMILY.

Terry: FOOD TO EAT,

THAT'S ALL MANY FAMILIES ARE

ASKING FOR, JUST LET US HAVE

FOOD TO EAT.

YOU ARE MAKING THAT POSSIBLE

FOR FAMILIES LIKE WILSON.

WENDY?

Wendy: WE HAVE ALL

HEARD THIS LINE FROM THE

LORD'S PRAYER, "GIVE US THIS

DAY OUR DAILY BREAD," BUT

WHAT DOES THAT REALLY MEAN?

GORDON ANSWERS THAT QUESTION

AND MORE IN HIS NEW TEACHING

"OUR FATHER."

Gordon: WE'RE COUNTING

DOWN TO VICTORY.

IT HAS BEEN A TREMENDOUS

DAY.

$125,000 ON THIS CHALLENGE,

AND AGAINST THAT YOU GAVE

$153,000.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PROVERBS 28: "HE

WHO GIVES TO THE POOR WILL

LACK NOTHING."

FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT GAVE,

THANK YOU, GOD BLESS YOU,

AND MAY THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN BE OPEN FOR YOU TODAY

AND FOR THE REST OF YOUR

LIVES.

GOD BLESS YOU.p?
