The 700 Club - Sept. 23, 2013

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB".

ISLAMIC TERRORISTS LAUNCHED

ATTACKS THIS WEEKEND. IN

PAKISTAN THEY ATTACKED A CHURCH

AND KIZZED DOZENS.

IN KENYA THE ATTACKS ARE

STILL GOING ON AND THE

ATTACKERS ARE TALKING NON

MUSLIM.

IT OPENED THIS WEEKEND AND

THERE WERE PANIC.

AND GUNSHOTS GOING ON.

AND AT LEAST 68 ARE DEAD AND

HUNDREDS WOUNDED. IT WAS SAID

THAT THEY TARGETED NON MUSLIM

AND LET ALL THE MUSLIM LEAVE.

THE AL-QAEDA GROUP IS CLAIMING

RESPONSIBILITY SAYING IT'S

PUNISHMENT FOR KENYA FOR

SENDING

TROOPS TO FIGHT IN SOMALIA.

THEY WERE TARGETING THESE

ATTACKS. THIS WAS THE MOST

SUCCESSFUL ONE INSIDE KENYA

TODAY.

MEANWHILE A PART OF THE

TALIBAN IS CLAIMING

RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ATTACK

ON

THE CHRISTIANS. OFFICIALS SAY

MORE THAN 80 PEOPLE WERE KILLED

AND OVER 140 WOUNDED.

MY DAUGHTER IN MY LAP DIED

IN

FRONT OF ME.

THE ATTACK HAPPENED ON

SUNDAY

AS A CHURCH SERVICE WAS LETTING

OUT AND A COUPLE OF SUICIDE

BOMBERS BLEW THEMSELVES UP

WHILE

PARISHIONERS WERE GETTING A

FREE

MEAL AND OTHERS ARE PROTESTING.

IN EVERY VILLAGE PEOPLE ON

THE STREET AND AGAINST THIS

BRUTAL ACT.

THEY MAKE UP 3% OF THE

POPULATION AND THIS ATTACK

HIGHLIGHTS THEIR VULNERABILITY.

CHARLENE ISRAEL CBN NEWS.

THOSE ATTACKS ARE HORRIFIC

AND THE

TARGETING OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN

AND NON MUSLIM AND LET'S JOIN

IN

PRAYER FOR THE SURVIVORS OF

THIS

HORRIBLE TRAGEDY AND PRAY FOR A

QUICK SOLUTION AND THAT THE

TALIBAN IS EXPOSED FOR WHAT

THEY

ARE. IT IS NOT A RELIGION OF

PEACE. IT'S DEFINITELY A

RELIGION OF VIOLENCE. IN

WASHINGTON A BIG DEADLINE ARE

BOOMING AND OPPONENTS OF THE

HEALTH CARE LAW ARE REFUSING TO

BACK DOWN. WE HAVE THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

THAT'S RIGHT GORDON.

LAWMAKERS ARE NOT CLOSER TO A

DEAL AND LESS THAN A WEEK

BEFORE

A GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN. AND

THEY SAID THEY WOULD FUND THE

GOVERNMENT BUT NOT OBAMACARE.

I BELIEVE WE SHOULD STAND

OUR

GROUND AND I DON'T BELIEVE

HARRY

REID AND BARACK OBAMA SHOULD

SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT. THE

HOUSE VOTED TO FUND THE

GOVERNMENT AND IF HARRY REID

KILLS THAT HE IS RESPONSIBLE

AND

HE SHOULD LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE

AND DON'T FUND OBAMACARE

BECAUSE

IT'S HURTING THE GOVERNMENT.

CRUISE SAYS A GOVERNMENT

SHUT

DOWN IS INEVITABLE UNLESS THEY

FUND IT. THE PASTOR WHO IS IN

BEHIND BARS AND HIS WIFE TOLD

PEOPLE AT LIBERTY UNIVERSITY

AND

EVEN THOUGH HE WAS ASKED TO DO

THESE THINGS HE IS SHARING THE

GOSPEL.

THEY SAID THEY WOULD RETURN

HIM IF HE DENIED HIS CHRISTIAN

FAITH AND HE HAS LEAD OVER 30

PEOPLE TO CHRIST IN THAT PRISON.

A PRAYER VIEG

-- VIG I WILL IS BEING TELD

THURSDAY. COLORADO IS WORKING

TO REBUILD 200 MILES OF

HIGHWAYS

AND BRIDGES BECAUSE OF THE

FLOODING AND HUNDREDS OF HOMES

WERE DESTROYED AND DAMAGED.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS BEEN

WORKING WITH THE CHURCHES TO

MEET THE NEEDS. THEY PARTNERED

WITH LIFE BRIDGE CHURCH TO SEND

OUT VOLUNTEERS AND HELPED

RESIDENTS IN THE AREA WITH MUCH

NEEDED CLEAN UP. GORDON,

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS A CLEAR

EXAMPLE HOW TO DEMONSTRATE THE

LOVE AND COMPASSION OF JESUS

CHRIST AND ADMINISTER THOSE IN

NEED.

IT'S A BIG THANK YOU TO THE

LIFE BRIDGE CHURCH AND THANK

YOU

TO YOU IF YOU'RE A PART OF "THE

700 CLUB" YOU'RE A PART OF

THAT.

WE WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS

.

WELL TODAY GARY AND SANDY

ARE

SELF EMPLOYED AND LIVING IN

THEIR DREAM HOUSE BUT AT ONE

TIME THEY WERE HOW THE OF WORK

AND MONEY AND PRAYING FOR A

MIRACLE.

GOING TO THE BLACK HILLS OF

SOUTH DAKOTA THE MANSION, HOME

OF CBN PARTNERS GARY AND SANDY.

THIS IS MORE THAN A HOME AND A

PLACE FOR WEDDINGS AND SPECIAL

EVENTS AND ALSO A BUSINESS, BUT

IT TOOK YEARS FOR THE COUPLE TO

BE IN A POSITION TO BUY THE

HOME

BECAUSE IN 1990 GARY A

COMMERCIAL PILOT BECAME ILL AND

COULDN'T WORK.

ONE DAY HE GOT OUT OF BED

AND

COULDN'T MOVE AND DIAGNOSED

WITH

A VIRUS. HIS I'M MIEWN SYSTEM

SHUT DOWN.

EVENTUALLY GARY RECOVERED

BUT

HE WAS OUT OF WORK SO LONG THEY

LOST THEIR HOME

THEY

CUT BACK WHERE THEY COULD

EXCEPT

THEIR TITHING AND GIVING.

WE'RE PARTNERING WITH THE

LORD. WE HAVE THAT REALLY

CLEAR. EVERYTHING THAT WE HAVE

REALLY DOES BELONG TO HIM.

AND WE KEPT THAT COMMITMENT

AND ALL I CAN SAY IS DOORS

STARTING OPENING FOR US THAT

ONLY GOD COULD OPEN.

BY NOW THEY STARTED A

BUSINESS DEVELOPING HEALTH

SUPPLEMENTS. THEY COMMITTED TO

RUN DEBT FREE AND GIVE OF THE

PROFITS. IT

GREW STEADILY AND RECOVERED

AFTER YEARS OF STRUGGLE

THINGS JUST HAVE BECOME EASY.

THEY ALSO BECAME CBN

PARTNERRINGS.

I KNOW WHEN I GIVE CBN

THEY'RE FEEDING AND CLOTHING

PEOPLE. THEY'RE GOING INTO

EVERY PART OF THE WORLD IF

THERE

IS A DISASTER. THEY'RE

TEACHING

THE WORD OF GOD.

SO WHEN THE MANSION CAME UP

FOR SALE THEY WERE FINALLY IN A

POSITION TO MAKE AN OFFER.

THEY

GOT THE HOME FOR HALF THE

ASKING

PRICE.

THINK THAT WE WOULD BE HERE

AND GOD WOULD ENTRUST US WITH

THIS PROPERTY. IT'S SUCH

GOODNESS OF GOD.

TODAY THE COUPLE'S BUSINESS

CONTINUES TO GROW. THEY'RE

CONVINCED IT'S BECAUSE OF THEIR

FAITHFULNESS TO GIVE.

GOD HAS OPENED UP A TREASURE

THAT ONLY HE COULD DO.

GOD WANTS TO BLESS

US AND GET THAT UNDERSTANDING

AND PERM WRAIT YOUR BEING. ME

WANTS TO DO IT. HERE IS THE

KEY.

"LET THEM SHOUT FOR JOY AND BE

GLAD TO FAVOR MY RIGHTEOUS

CAUSE

AND LET THEM SAY

CONTINUALLY AND HAVE PLEASURE

AND THE PROSPERITY AND HE WANTS

TO GIVE THEM THEIR HEARTS

DESIRE. THEN YOU GET A

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT VIEW OF

HOW

SHOULD WE LIVE. NOW THIS ISN'T

A GREAT SLOT MACHINE IN THE SKY

AND YOU PUT THINGS IN AND OUT

COMES ALL THESE BLESSINGS.

IT'S

NOT THAT WAY. WHAT'S THE KEY?

YOU FIND IT IN VERSE 27 HERE

AND

FIND THEM GLAD AND FAVOR MY

RIGHTEOUS CAUSE. THAT'S THE

KEY. WHEN YOU FAVOR WHAT GOD

WANTS TO DO IN THE WORLD TODAY.

WHEN YOU SAY I WANT TO PUT THE

KINGDOM OF GOD FIRST AND HIS

RIGHTEOUSNESS. I WANT TO SEE

HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS EXPEND AND

THE

GOOD NEWS AROUND THE WORLD. I

WANT TO BE PART OF HELPING

PEOPLE IN NEED. I WANT TO

REACH

OUT TO THE POOR AND NEEDY AND

JUSTICE ESTABLISHED IN THE LAND

AGAIN. IF YOU DO THESE THINGS,

YOU FAVOR HIS RIGHTEOUS CAUSE,

THEN HE WILL TAKE SPECIAL

PLEASURE IN GIVING YOU BLESSING

AND WHAT YOUR HEART DESIRES.

HE

DID THAT FOR GARY AND SANDY HE

WILL DO IT FOR YOU. IN THIS

TIMES A PAY CUT ISN'T GOOD AND

ESPECIALLY IN THIS SALARY BUT

MIKE TOOK A JOB PAYING LESS AND

IT PAID OFF IN WAYS HE COULDN'T

HAVE IMAGINED.

IN ALL THE YEARS OF THEIR

MARRIAGE THEY HAVE BEEN

GENEROUS

EVEN IN THE DIFFICULT OF TIMES.

I NEVER STOPPED TITHING AND

IT BELONGS TO GOD AND GOD WILL

TAKE CARE OF ME.

2012 BROUGHT CHALLENGES.

MIKE STEPPED DOWN BECAUSE OF A

JOB IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY AND

THE

LACK OF HOURS WERE TAKING TOLL

ON HIS HEALTH.

I AM GETTING ALONG IN MY

YEARS

HERE.

HE TOOK A JOB WITH HALF OF

THE HOURS.

I WAS OKAY WITH THAT AND I

WAS ON CALL AS A CONSULTANT.

THE ANDERSONS WERE CARRYING

$30,000 IN DEBT AND NEVER

HADDAGE EMERGENCY ACCOUNT SO

EVERYTHING WENT ON CREDIT.

WE WEREN'T PAYING THEM OFF

AND WE WERE GIVING MORE TO GOD.

THE ANDERSONS WERE ALREADY

MEMBERS OF "THE 700 CLUB" AND

DECIDED TO INCREASE THEIR

GIVING. SHE SAW A STORY ABOUT

AN 85 YEAR OLD COUPLE THAT LOST

EVERYTHING FROM HURRICANE SANDY

AND CBN REBUILT THEIR HOME.

THEY SAW THE COUPLE WALKING

IN THE FIRST TIME AND AMAZED.

IT TOUCHED MY HEART SO THAT DAY

I CHANGED TO PLEDGE EXPRESS AND

INCREASED TO $100. ALL OF A

SUDDEN I WAS GETTING MORE WORK

WHERE I WAS MAKING MORE THAN

BEFORE AND WE'RE EVEN.

THEN THEY DECIDED TO TAKE

ANOTHER STEP OF FAITH. THEY

INCREASED THE PLEDGE TO CBN

AGAIN. SHE HEARD GORDON TALK

CREATIVE IDEAS.

GORDON WAS TALKING WHEN YOU

GIVE TO GOD AND IT'S NOT JUST

PAYCHECKS BUT CREATIVE IDEAS.

SO WHEN SHE DISCOVERED THAT

THE LIFE INSURANCE POLICY WAS

GOING TO INCREASE AND CASHED IT

IN AND BOUGHT A TERM LIFE

INSURANCE POLICY AND MADE A

$25,000 PROFIT.

WE TOOK A CHUNK OF MONEY OFF

AND PAID OFF THE CREDIT CARDS

AND THE CAR AND NOW WE HAVE

LIFE

INSURANCE AND SAME AMOUNT AND

IT'S NOT THAT MUCH MORE.

TODAY THEY'RE LIVING THEIR

DREAM IN THEIR WEST COAST BEACH

HOUSE.

THE BIBLE SAID IF YOU

DELIGHT

YOURSELF IN THE LORD HE WILL

GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR

HEART. WE DIDN'T MAKE IT

HAPPEN. WE FOLLOWED GOD AND HE

MADE IT HAPPEN. WE'RE BLESSED.

MIKE AND VIVE LEARNED THE

SECRET AND FOLLOWED GOD AND

THEY

WERE DONE THAT AND HONOR THE

LORD WITH YOUR POSSESSIONS AND

WITH THE FIRST FRUIT OF YOUR

INCREASE SO THE BARNS ARE

FILLED WITH PLENTY AND THE VATS

WILL OVERFLOW WITH NEW WINE.

IF

I CAN GET A DRUM ROLL I HAVE

SOME AMAZING NEWS AND SOME CBN

PARTNERS LOVE GIVING TO CBN SO

WE WANT TO CHALLENGE OTHERS TO

GIVE AND WHAT THEY'RE PROMISING

THEY WILL MATCH THE GIFT DOLLAR

FOR DOLLAR FOR THE NEXT 30

MINUTES $200,000.

[APPLAUSE]

LORD WE ASK FOR BLESSING. WE

JUST ASK FOR INCREASE FOR THE

PARTNERS WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE

TO

ISSUE THIS CHALLENGE. JUST

BLESS THEM. LET THEM TO BE

OVER

FLOWING WITH THE BLESSINGS OF

THE LORD AND FOR THOSE WATCHING

MAKING DECISIONS NOW SPEAK TO

THEM, ENCOURAGE THEM BECAUSE WE

ASK IT M JESUS' NAME. AMEN.

$200,000.

MINUTES ON THE CLOCK. WE'RE

ASKING TO YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB". IT'S $20 A MONTH. WE

WHATEVER LEVEL GOD IS SPEAKING

TO YOU TO GIVE. NOW IS THE

TIME

TO DO IT. WE HAVE A $200,000

CHALLENGE SO YOUR GIVING IS

DOUBLED UP THAT AMOUNT. TERRY.

WELL, I THINK YOU WOULD

AGREE

ME THAT THE WORLD WE LIVE IN IS

QUITE CHAOTIC IN THIS AGE AND

HOW DO WE LIVE? WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB" WE WANT TO GIVE

YOU OUR D.V.D. AND IT'S TITLED

QUESTIONS.

IF YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY

TO COME BEFORE ALL MIGHTY GOD

ASK ONE QUESTION WHAT WOULD

THAT

BE

WHEN NELSON'S BUSINESS TOOK

A

HIT HIM AND HIS WIFE WENT

THROUGH THE SAVINGS AND HE GOT

A

SECOND JOB AND ONE DAY HE TOOK

A

DETOUR. WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

SAVED HIS COMPANY.

TO ME NOTHING WAS IMPORTANT

TO ME AND DIDN'T MEAN ANYTHING

EXCEPT MY LITTLE GIRL.

THEIR WORLD WAS TURNED

UPSIDE

DOWN WHEN THEIR THREE YEAR OLD

DAUGHTER WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A

CONDITION THAT REQUIRED OPEN

HEART SURGERY.

TO TELL YOU IT WAS VERY

DIFFICULT WOULDN'T PUT IT INTO

WORDS.

HE OWNS HIS OWN BUSINESS

PUTTING FENCING IN AND BETWEEN

HIS DAUGHTER AND DOCTOR VISITS

HE HAD TROUBLE CONCENTRATING ON

WORK.

NELSON WAS FALLING APART AND

THE BUSINESS STRUGGLE AND HE

WAS

STRESSED OUT.

THEY PRAYED FOR A SUCCESSFUL

SURGERY AND RECOVERY FOR THEIR

DAUGHTER.

WHEN THE DOCTOR CAME OUT AND

SAID EVERYTHING CAME OUT

PERFECT. IT WAS AMAZING TIME.

THE BUSINESS DIDN'T RECOVER

AS QUICKLY. THE COUPLE WENT

THROUGH THE SAVINGS AND NELSON

SOOK ON WORK SELLING CARS.

IN THE DARKEST TIMES I

PRAISED GOD THAT I HAD INCOME

ING

IN IN AND EVEN THOUGH IT WAS

LITTLE I THAIRCHLED HIM FOR

THAT. ONE DAY NELSON WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB". THEY

WERE TALKING ABOUT A DAUGHTER

IN

CHINA THAT NEEDED HEART SURGERY

SO THE 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.

NELSON WAS ALREADY A TITHER

AND EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE

STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY HE

DECIDED TO BECOME A "THE 700

CLUB" PARTNER.

MY FEW DOLLARS CAN

CONTRIBUTE

TO THAT CAUSE THAT SAVED THIS

GIRL SO I AM ALL IN.

A FEW WEEKS LATER HE WAS

DRIVING HOME FROM WORK.

I FELT THE HOLY SPIRIT

PROMPT

ME TO GET OFF ON THIS EXIT AND

I

LOOKED OVER TO MY RIGHT AND

THERE WAS A BIG CONSTRUCTION

SITE AND I HEARD THE HOLY

SPIRIT

SAY PULL IN THERE.

HE INTRODUCED HIMSELF AND

OFFERED HIS SERVICE.

HE SAYS YEAH WE'RE LOOKING

TO

GET A FENCE DONE. WHY DON'T

YOU

GIVE ME A QUOTE. IT WAS OUR

BIGGEST PROJECT IN THE HISTORY

OF OUR COMPANY.

THIS JOB BROUGHT THEIR

FINANCES BACK ON TRACK. TODAY

BUSINESS IS GOING GREAT.

MALACHI SAYS TRUST ME AND

MAKE YOUR HOUSE OVER FLOW. I

ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY THAT 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.

HERE'S THE PROMISE FROM LUKE

CHAPTER SIX. GIVE AND BE GIVEN

TO YOU. A GOOD MEASURE PRESS

DOWN AND SHAKING TOGETHER AND

RUNNING OVER WILL BE PORED INTO

YOUR LAP FOR WITH THE MEASURE

YOU USE IT WILL BE MEASURED TO

YOU. IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT,

YOU WANT TO SAY YES, I WANT TO

START GIVING, I WANT TO GIVE

GENEROUSLY AND CHEERFULLY CALL

YOU'RE DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

I WANT TO BE PART OF "OPERATION

BLESSING". I WANT TO BE PART

OF

CBN INTERNATIONAL. I WANT TO

BE

PART OF EVERYTHING "THE 700

CLUB" IS INVOLVED IN. CALL US

NOW 1-800-759-0700. WELL WHEN

CHAD HAD OPEN HEART SURGERY HE

WAS OUT OF WORK FOR FOUR MONTHS

BUT EVEN WITHOUT INCOME THE

FAMILY PAID ALL THE BILLS ON

TIME AND THEY NEVER RAN OUT OF

MONEY. HERE'S HOW THEY DID IT.

CHAD AND KIM BUSHY ARE HARD

WORKY 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

ONE IF YOU DO SOMETHING WITH IT

SO WE MAKE LOTS OF THINGS.

CHEESE AND ICE CREAM.

I LOVE THE OUT OUT DOORS SO

I

THANK GOD GIVING ME THE NATURE

TO WORK WITH.

A FEW YEARS LATER JACK

NEEDED

SURGERY AND WAS UNABLE TO WORK

FOR FOUR MONTHS. IN SPITE OF

THE FINANCIAL CHALLENGES THEY

CONTINUED TO TITHE AND GIVE TO

CBN FROM THE MONEY THEY MADE

FROM SELLING SOAP AND GOAT MILK

AND AS THEY GAVE GOD PROVIDED.

ANYTIME WE WERE NEED SOMEONE

WOULD CALL AND "NEED $10 OF

SOAP" AND WE WOULD HAVE WHAT

WE

NEEDED AND WHAT WE WAS LAID UP

FROM SURGERY FRIENDS FROM

CHURCH

PAID THE BILLS AND BOUGHT THE

GROWSH

GROCERYS.

AND THEY GAVE US A FOOD CARD

AND IT COVERED MOST OF THE

LIVING EXPENSES RIGHT THERE.

AND WHEN THEY RAN OUT OF HAY

FOR THE ANIMALS A NEIGHBOR

CALLED AND ASKED IF THEY NEEDED

$400 OF HAY.

I SAID I CAN'T PAY FOR IT.

PAY IN A FEW MONTHS. COME ON

EMPTY. I HAD SO MUCH HAY MY

ENTIRE BARN WAS FULL.

THEY ADOPTED THREE CHILDREN

AND THE ONEEST ONE IS IN

COLLEGE

NOW.

"ORPHANS PROMIS".

AND I LOVE IT.

AND THEIR DAUGHTER IS GIVING

TOO. IN FACT SHE LOVES CBN SO

MUCH INSTEAD OF USING HER MONEY

FOR A PONY SHE GAVE HER $20 TO

CBN.

THERE WAS CBN AND A PAIN IN

MY HEART THAT YOU NEED TO GIVE

AND I TALKED TO MY MOM AND DAD

AND THEY SAID I COULD GIVE AND

SHE WROTE THE CHECK AND I

STARTED A GIVING JAR FOR THE

CBN.

IT'S SO NICE TO HAVE OUR

DAUGHTER GIVING AND

UNDERSTANDING THE PRINCIPLES OF

O BOYS GOD'S WORD.

THEY BELIEVE YOU CAN'T OUT

GIVE GOD AND THAT'S WHY THEY

INCREASED THE GIVING TO GOD.

ONLY GOD KNOWS HOW MANY

APPLES YOU IT GET OUT OF ONE

SEED AND IF YOU GIVE TO CBN YOU

WILL NEVER SEE THE END OF THE

BLESSING.

I TELL KIDS YOU SHOULD DO IT

BECAUSE IF YOU GIVE IT WILL

BLESS GOD.

I LOVE THAT STORY. HERE IS A

PROMISE FROM PSALM 41. THE

LORD

WILL LIVER IN TIME OF TROUBLE.

IF YOU WANT TO CONSIDER THAT

GIVE US A CALL. WE'RE REACHING

OUT TO THE POOR AND NEEDY

AROUND

THE WORLD. RIGHT HERE IN

AMERICA WE ARE FEEDING 3

MILLION

AMERICANS THROUGH "OPERATION

BLESSING" AND THE FOOD TRUCKS

THAT DELIVER FOOD BY THE

CONTAINER LOAD TO FOOD BANKS

AND

CHURCHES ACROSS THE NATION AND

PEOPLE ARE BLESSED BECAUSE

PEOPLE LIKE YOU GIVE. IF YOU

WANT TO BE A PART OF IT GIVE US

A CALL RIGHT NOW

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE PHONES.

THANKS GORDON. RECENTLY

SCOTT ROSS SAT DOWN WITH PAT

ROBERTSON TO TALK ABOUT LIFE'S

LIGGEST QUESTIONS AND WHERE TO

FIND THE ANSWERS IN THE BIBLE.

IT'S IN HERE IN OUR NEW D.V.D.

"HOW SHALL WE NOW LIVE". TAKE

A

LOOK.

WHO IS JESUS? DID JESUS

EVER

CLAIM HIMSELF TO BE GOD, NOT

JUST ANOTHER GOD, BUT GOD

HIMSELF?

HE WAS ASKING IN HIS TRIAL

ARE YOU THE SON OF GOD? I AM.

ARE YOU THE MESSIAH? I AM AND

YOU WILL SEE THE SON OF MAN

COMING IN THE CLOUDS OF GLORY

AND TO THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER

AND YES HE CLAIMS BECAUSE HE

WAS.

NO MATTER WHAT QUESTION YOU

HAVE, NO MATTER WHAT PROBLEM

YOU'RE GOING THROUGH RIGHT NOW

I

CAN PROMISE YOU GOD HAS A

SOLUTION AND HE WANTS TO ANSWER

YOUR QUESTION EVEN MORE THAN

YOU

WANT TO ASK IT. WE WANT TO

HELP

YOU FIND THOSE ANSWERS IN PAT'S

NEW TOUCHING CALLED "HOW SHALL

WE NOW LIVE". QUESTIONS LIKE

THIS STILL HAPPEN TODAY. WHY

IS

THERE SUFFERING IN THE WORLD?

HOW DO YOU GET IT? GO TO THE

PHONES AND 1-800-759-0700 OR UG

LOG ON TO CBN.COM. WE IN THE

MIDDLE OF A CHALLENGE.

$200,000. THAT MEANS EVERY

DOLLAR YOU PLEDGE IS MATCHED

DOLLAR PER DOLLAR. WE HAVE 18

MINUTES LEFT. IF YOU'RE A "THE

700 CLUB" PARTNER HOW MUCH IS

IT? 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH

AND THINK ABOUT TAKING IT TO

THE

$40 A MONTH LEVEL. WE WANT TO

BLESS YOU WITH THREE OF PAT'S

TEACHINGS AND MAKE YOU CAN CAN

DO MORE $84 A MONTH AND GIVE

YOU

FIVE OF THESE TEACHINGS. WE'RE

IN THE MIDDLE MUCH A BIG

CHALLENGE. WE NEED YOU TO GO

TO

THE PHONES RIGHT NOW. GORDON.

IN THE MASAI TRIBE MEN ARE

BROUGHT UP TO THE WARRIORS AND

THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN ARE LEFT

TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES. IN ONE

KENYAN VILLAGE THEY WENT

WITHOUT

BASIC NECESSITIES LIKE FOOD AND

WATER.

IN THE FOOTHILLS OF

MOUNTAINS

WHERE THE MASAI OWNS "OPERATION

BLESSING" OWNS 50 ACRES OF

LAND.

IT'S A POOR AREA WHERE PEOPLE

HAVE NO EDUCATION AT ALL SO THE

FIRST THING WE DID WAS BUILD A

SCHOOL.

I DIDN'T THINK MY CHILDREN

WOULD GET AN EDUCATION. NOW

THEY HAVE THE SCHOOL HERE I CAN

WALK MY CHILDREN TO SCHOOL.

THIS IS A GREAT BLESSING. GOD

HAS REMEMBERED US.

UNTIL NOW THE CLOSEST SCHOOL

WAS MORE THAN 5 MILES AWAY:

THIS AREA WHERE DOZENS OF

FAMILIES LIVE IS RIGHT IN

BETWEEN TWO GAME PARKS. IT'S A

HIGH TRAFFIC ZONE FOR

ELEPHANTS.

THE MAS I TALKED TO USUALLY SAY

THEY DON'T MESS WITH ADULTS BUT

THEY HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO ATTACK

CHILDREN AND THEY HAVE TO WORK

SO HARD TO MAKE A LIVING AND

CAN'T TAKE THE TIME TO WALK THE

KIDS TO SCHOOL AND THAT IS

20 MILES OF WALKING A DAY SO

THIS SCHOOL REPRESENTS THE ONLY

OPPORTUNITY THESE KIDS HAVE AT

GETTING AN EDUCATION.

AS SOON AS WE OPENED THE

SCHOOL FAMILIES SIGNED UP MORE

THAN 60 CHILDREN. THEY LOVE

GOING TO SCHOOL HERE BUT IT

DIDN'T TAKE THE TEACHERS LONG

TO

REALIZE THAT NO ONE WAS

BRINGING

ANYTHING TO EAT FOR LUNCH.

THEY

FOUND OUT FAMILIES DIDN'T HAVE

ANY FOOD TO SEND WITH THEIR

KIDS

SO WE'RE GIVING THE KIZ LUNCHES

AND TAKING FOOD TO THE NEEDY

FAMILIES.

THE FAMILIES ARE SO GRATEFUL

FOR "OPERATION BLESSING" WHILE

WE'RE SERVING LUNCH TO THE

CHILDREN THE PARENTS CAME OUT

TO

SING A TRADITIONAL SONG FOR US

AND IT'S IN MASAI, "WE DIDN'T

EXPECT IT BUT A BLESSING CAME

TO

US".

FAMILIES ARE FARMING A LARGE

PORTION OF THE LAND SO THEY

ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING TO EAT.

THIS IS A DRY PART OF AFRICA

WHERE THE PLANTS AND THE PEOPLE

NEED WATER DESPERATELY SO WE

ALSO DUG A DEEP WELL HERE AND

WE

STILL HAVE LAND FOR JOB

TRAINING

CENTERS AND SCHOOL EXPANSION OR

MORE FARMING. AS WE KEEP

WORKING "OPERATION BLESSING"

WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE HOPE TO

THE MASAI IN THIS ISOLATING

PART

OF KENYA.

THIS IS WHERE I WAS BORN. I

HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE

THIS HERE. IT IS LIKE A

MIRACLE

COMING INTO A PLACE WHERE THERE

WAS NOTHING. WE ARE THANKING

THE LORD FOR WHAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS DOING IN THIS AREA.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB" THANK YOU. YOU'RE

PART OF THAT. JUST IMAGINE

THAT

THE MASAI ARE SINGING OVER YOU

AND SINGING BLESSINGS OVER YOU

BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU HAVE DONE.

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER JOIN

WITH

US AND JOIN IN EVERYTHING WE'RE

DOING AROUND THE WORLD. IT'S

EASY. THE NUMBER IS TOLL FREE.

1-800-759-0700. JUST SAY YES,

FROM YOU. CALL US NOW.

1-800-759-0700. TERRY.

YOU JUST SAW A STORY FROM

SOME OF THE WORK IN EAST AFRICA

THAT WE'RE DOING. I WANT TO

TAKE YOU TO CHINA AND A COUPLE

PRAYED FOR A CHILD AND THEY

WERE

ANSWERED BUT NOT EXACTLY IN THE

WAY THEY EXPECTED.

AFTER A MISCARRIAGE MRS.

SHAW

WAS TOLD SHE WOULDN'T BE ABLE

TO

CONCEIVE BUT THEY DESPERATEDLY

WANTED A BABY.

I ASKED THE LORD TO PLEASE

GIVE ME A CHILD.

THE COUPLE'S PRAYERS WERE

ANSWERED THE MOMENT THEY

STEPPED

FOOT INTO AN

ORPHANAGE AND SAW A BOY WITH A

CLEFT PALET.

I SAW HIM AND HE NEEDED A

FAMILY.

THE LORD PUT THE LOVE INTO

ME

AND WHISPERED "HE'S THE CHILD".

THEY ADOPTED THE CHILD AND

NAMED HIM "GOD ANSWERED OUR

PRAYERS AND GIVE US THE BEST".

IF WAS A CHALLENGE TO GET

HIM

TO DRINK THE MILK. HE CRIED

ALL

THE TIME. WHEN I SAW HIM

SUFFERING AND HOW HARD HIS LIFE

WOULD BE WITH THIS CLEFT LIP.

IT BROKE MY HEART AND I CRIED

TOO.

THE BABY NEEDED SURGERY BUT

MR. SHAW WAS THE MECHANIC AND

ONLY MAKES $10 A DAY.

I THOUGHT ABOUT GOING INTO

DEBT TO GIVE MY CHILD SURGERY

BUT FIRST WE ONCE AGAIN TURN TO

THE LORD.

I KNEW HE CARED EVEN MORE

FOR

MY BABY THAN I DID.

THEN THE SHAWS HEARD ABOUT

CBN AND HOW WE HELP CHILDREN

LIKE THEIRS. AS SOON AS THE

COUPLE CONTACTED US WE SET UP

CLEFT LIP AND PALET SURGERY.

AS SOON AS I GOT THE NEWS I

FELT THE DARK CLOUD WAS GONE

AND

THE SUN CAME OUT. I WAS SO

HAPPY.

THE SURGERY CHANGED THE

BABY'S FACE AND LIFE.

WHEN THEY PUT HIM IN MY ARMS

I LOOKED DOWN AND COULD BARELY

RECOGNIZE MY BABY. HE'S SO

HANDSOME. HE'S HEALTHY AND

DIDN'T HAVE PROBLEMS EATING OR

DRINKING. I THANK THE LORD FOR

THIS AND I THANK CBN FOR

HELPING

US WHEN WE HAD NO HOPE.

YOU HAVE MADE ME SUCH A

HAPPY

MOTHER. EVERY TIME I SEE A

SMILE I WILL THINK OF YOU AND

HOW YOU WERE WILLING TO SHARE

YOUR LOVE WITH A POOR FAMILY

LIKE MINE.

ALL AROUND THE WORLD CBN

PARTNERS ARE MAKING MIRACLES

HAPPEN. IF YOU'RE A CBN

PARTNER

WE SAY THANK YOU. MAYBE YOU

WOULD LIKE TO GO UP TO THE NEXT

CLUB LEVEL. IF YOU'RE A "THE

700 CLUB" MEMBER GO UP TO GOLD

AND IF YOU'RE ON GOLD TRY THE

THOUSAND CLUB. WE HAVE A 2500

CLUB LEVEL. THE FOUNDERS JOIN

US AT $417 A MONTH AND FROM ARE

CHAIRMAN'S MEMBER AND GIVE

THOUSAND DOLLARS OR MORE A

YEAR.

WHEN YOU CALL RIGHT NOW TO SAY

WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO IN

THIS COMING YEAR AND NOT ONLY

WILL THE DOLLAR BE MATCHED BUT

WE ASK YOU TO USE PLEDGE

EXPRESS

AND THAT MEANS THE BANK DOES

ALL

THE WORKS AND YOU DON'T NEED TO

HAVE STAMPS ON HAND AND

ENVELOPES AND WRITING CHECKS.

YOU CAN STOP IT ANYTIME YOU

WANT

BUT IT SAVES PROCESSING COST SO

WE CAN PUT MORE OF YOUR GIFT

INTO THE LIVES OF THE YOUNG

FAMILY YOU JUST SAW. OUR THANK

YOU FOR USING PLEDGE EXPRESS IS

SEND YOU POWERFUL LIFE

TEACHINGS. WE RECEIVE THESE AT

CBN ON A REGULAR BASIS AND WE

WANT TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU AND

THINK THEY'RE A BLESSING TO

YOU.

1-800-759-0700. SAY I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB" AND LET

THEM

KNOW THE LEVEL AND I WOULD LIKE

TO USE IT USING PLEDGE EXPRESS.

WE THANK YOU.

THANKS TERRY. WE RECENTLY

GOD ANYTHING WHAT WOULD YOU ASK

HIM?" WE TOOK THE TOP 10

QUESTIONS AND IT'S NOW IN THIS

NEW D.V.D., HOW FAR HOW FAR.

PAT GIVES YOU THE BIBLICAL

AS A FREE LANCE PHOTOGRAPHER

JOHN JACKSON WAS DROWNING IN

DEBT AND ONE DAY HE MADE A

DECISION THAT MORE THAN

DOUBLEDHIS INCOME.

JOHN JACKSON WORKS IN A

PAINT

STORY BUT LOVES TO WORK AS A

PHOTOGRAPHER AND ALSO A PARTNER

WITH CBN.

THEY SHOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING

EVERYDAY, EVERY WEEK WHETHER

IT'S AROUND THE WORLD OR IN MY

NEIGHBORHOOD THEY SHOW WHAT

THEY'RE DOING AND TO ME BASED

ON

WHAT I HAVE LEARNED THROUGH

SCRIPTURE THAT IS GOOD GROUND.

IF THAT IS GOOD GROUND THEN YOU

WILL GET A HARVEST.

IN 1995 JOHN STARTED GIVING

$20 A MONTH. HE SAYS SOON

AFTER

THAT GOD PROMPTED HIM TO GIVE

$84 A MONTH BUT JOHN RESISTED.

I KIND OF PUSHED IT. I

CAN'T

AFFORD THAT.

AT THE TIME JOHN WAS

STRUGGLING WITH HIS FINANCES

AND

RIDING A BIKE TO WORK. HE HAD

A

JOB AT A PAINT STORE BUT HIS

CAR

NEEDED EXPENSIVE REPAIRS AND

HAD

TO SELL IT AT A LOST JUST TO

MAKE ENDS MEET.

ONE DAY I WAS RIDING AND

LORD

I AM TIRED OF THIS AND WHAT IS

NEXT? AGAIN YOU NEED TO GIVE.

PLEDGE EXPRESS. THIS IS HOW

MUCH. NOT JUST GIVE THIS MUCH

BUT PLEDGE EXPRESS. HE WAS

SPECIFIC ON WHAT HE WANTED ME

TO

DO.

FINALLY JOHN INCREASED HIS

CBN PLEDGE TO $84 A MONTH.

WHEN I MADE UP MY MIND TO DO

IT THAT'S WHEN THE PROMOTION

STARTED COMING. NOW I RECENTLY

GOT PROMOTED TO STORE MANAGER

AND THAT WELL DOUBLED MY PAY.

IN ADDITION TO HIS PROMOTION

JOHN SAW GOD AT WORK IN OTHER

WAYS. FOR ONE THING HIS

PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS TOOK OFF.

I AM GETTING MORE HITS ON MY

WEBSITE. IT'S MORE THAN

DOUBLED, MORE THAN TRIPLED, AND

I FOUND A CAR EXCELLENT

CONDITION FOR $2,200. THE BLUE

BOOK SAYS IT'S WORTH $3,800.

IT'S GOD. I AM JUST FOLLOWING

HIS PRINCIPLES.

JOHN SAYS HE LEARNED THOSE

PRINCIPLES IN PART FROM

WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB".

I HEAR CBN TALK ALL THE

TIME.

THEY USE THE SCRIPTURE

[INAUDIBLE] SEW ABUNDANTLY AND

YOU WILL SEW A BUNTANTLY AND I

SEEN IT AND YOU CAN'T CONVINCE

ME OTHERWISE.

JOHN BELIEVES THIS IS THE

KEY

TO HIS BLESSINGS.

YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO

FIGHT

AND LIKE A MINISTRY LIKE CBN.

LISTEN TO WHAT GOD IS TELLING

YOU. PARTNER WITH CBN. WILL

BE

BLESSED.

CAN I GET A DRUM ROLL? AND

THERE ARE PARTNERS THAT SAY I

LIKE GIVING AND WANT TO

KNOWLEDGE OTHERS TO GIVE AND

THEY WANT TO INCREASE THIS TO

$300,000.

[APPLAUSE]

WITH LESS THAN 18 MINUTES ON

THE

CLOCK. LORD WE ASK FOR A

BLESSING OVER THEM. WE KNOW

THAT YOUR WORD WILL BE TRUE FOR

THEM THAT YOU WILL OPEN THE

WINDOWS OF HEAVEN AND POOR OUT

A

BLESSING AND BLESS YOUR PEOPLE

AND ASK IT IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN. YOU HEARD IT. $300,000

IS THE CHALLENGE. WE NEED TO

HEAR FROM YOU SO CALL US NOW.

WELL PERRY COUNTY

PENNSYLVANIA HAS BEEN HIT HARD

BY THE RECESSION. THAT'S WHY

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS THERE

WORKING TO FEED FAMILIES WHO

NEED A LITTLE EXTRA HELP LIKE

GEORGE AND BECCA CLAY.

AS GEORGE SERVED OVERSEAS

WITH THE ARMY HE KNOWS BECCA

AND

THEIR CHILDREN ARE TAKEN CARE

THANKS TO THE STUDY INCOME THE

MILITARY PROVIDES. THE

OPERATION IS DIFFICULT.

IT'S HARD WITH THE KIDS.

THEY DON'T TRULY UNDERSTAND

WHAT

IS GOING ON.

GOD PREPARES US AND WE

PREPARE AS HOPING TO PULL

THROUGH IT.

BECKY HELPS THE KIDS DO

SCRAP

BOOKS AND KEEP IN TOUCH OVER

THE

INTERNET AND GORGE HAD A

DIFFICULT PERIOD THREE YEARS

AGO

AND A LOSS OF HIS SALES JOB DUE

TO THE RECESSION.

THERE WASN'T WELL IN A FEW

WEEKS OR GIVE YOU ANOTHER MONTH

OR WHATEVER. KIND OF LIKE HE

WENT INTO WORK ONE DAY AND THAT

WAS IT SO WE DIDN'T HAVE A FAIR

WARNING.

THEY LIVE IN PENNSYLVANIA

AND

IN AN AREA THAT WAS HARD HIT BY

THE RECESSION. BECCA WORKS

HART

TIME AS A HAIR DRESSER BUT IT

WASN'T ENOUGH. THEY PICKED UP

FOOD AND OTHER HOUSEHOLD

SUPPLIES WHEN THEY NEEDED IT.

YOUR FIRST THOUGHT IS I WILL

GO WITHOUT BEFORE WE KIDS GO

WITHOUT AND KNOWING THEY HAD

THE

THINGS THEY NEEDED MAKES YOU

SLEEP BETTER AT NIGHT.

"OPERATION BLESSING" JOINS

UP

WITH THIS GROUP TO HELP PEOPLE

IN THE COUNTY. HE SAYS IT

MEETS

MORE THAN THE PHYSICAL NEEDS.

THE FOOD GIVES US TREMENDOUS

OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW PEOPLE THAT

WE CARE, THAT JESUS CARES ABOUT

THEM AND OPENS THE HEART TO

RECEIVE GOD'S WORD.

THEY ARE DOING WELL NOW

BECAUSE OF THE INCOME FROM THE

ARMY AND WHILE HER HUSBAND

SERVES THIS COUNTRY BECCA MAKES

IT A PRIORITY TO VOLUNTEER HERE

AND THEY WERE GRATEFUL FOR WHAT

THEY GOT AND THAT OTHERS GET

THE

BLESSING WHEN THEY NEED IT MOST.

IT WAS RELIEF WE HAD

"OPERATION BLESSING" THERE TO

HELP US WHEN WE WERE IN THE

TRENCHES. THANKS DOESN'T COVER

IT. THAT'S JUST -- SEEMS LIKE

A

SMALL WORD TO SAY BECAUSE IT'S

AMAZING, THE LIVES THAT ARE

TOUCHED AND CHANGED THROUGH

"OPERATION BLESSING".

WELL THANKS DOESN'T COVER IT

FOR US EITHER AS GEORGE SERVES

ALL OF US IN THE MILITARY, AND

IT'S A PRIVILEGE TO COME ALONG

SIDE BECCA AND HER FAMILY AND

NOW SHE IS DOING THE SAME THING

FOR OTHER FAMILIES. THAT'S

WHAT

HAPPENS. WE ALL TOUCH EACH

OTHER AND WE WANT TO THANK YOU

FOR FAMILIES HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES AND IN A PLACE OF NEED.

PLEASE BE PART OF THAT WITH US.

1-800-759-0700. WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB" DO IT USING

PLEDGE EXPRESS. IT'S

A HINDU FARMER NEEDED CLEAN

WATER AND DID SOMETHING RADICAL

FOR HELP AND THIS IS WHAT

HAPPENED NEXT AND HOW IT

CHANGED

THE ENTIRE VILLAGE.

NORTHWEST INDIA CAN BE A VERY

DIFFICULT JOB ESPECIALLY IF YOU

SOURCE.

HE HAD TO WALK 2 MILES TO GET

WATER FOR THE FAMILY AND

ANIMALS. HE BEGGED THE HINDU

GODS FOR HELP BUT NOTHING

CHANGED AND A LOCAL PASTOR

ENCOURAGED HIM TO PRAY TO JESUS.

I WOULD PRAY TO JESUS EVERY

NOON TIME AND EVEN FOR WATER

LIFE TO CHRIST AND THEY WEREN'T

THE ONLY ONES AND MANY OTHER

VILLAGERS WERE BAPTDIZED AND

SAW

IT AS A TANGIBLE SIGN.

WELL TODAY JOSE HAS A GOOD

JOB AND EVEN MAKES ENOUGH MONEY

TO HELP HIS NEIGHBORS BUY FOOD

BUT NOT LONG AGO HE WAS OUT OF

WORK HIMSELF AND HIS FAMILY WAS

STARVING.

JOSE HAS ALWAYS WORKED HARD

TO PROVIDE FOR HIS FAMILY UNTIL

THE DAY HE OPENED A STORAGE

SHED

AND REALIZED SOMEONE HAD STOLEN

HIS TOOLS. HE RACED AROUND THE

CONSTRUCTION SITE HOPING TO

FIND

THEM BUT THEY WERE GONE.

WHEN THEY WERE STOLEN I KNEW

I WAS GOING TO GET FIREED.

A DAY LATER JOSE LOST HIS

JOB.

I THOUGHT NOW I WON'T BE

ABLE

TO BRING IN MONEY FOR THE

HOUSEHOLD EXPENSES, SCHOOL, OR

MEDICINE.

THREE MONTHS PAST AND HE WAS

ONLY ABLE TO FIND ODD JOBS THAT

PAID LITTLE. HE WAS BEGINNING

TO FEEL LIKE A FAILURE AS A

CHILD.

WHEN I WAS A BOY I WENT

HUNGRY AND THE TRUTH IS I NEVER

WANTED MY CHILDREN TO FACE THAT.

WHEN "OPERATION BLESSING"

CAME TO DOWN FOR A FREE SHOE

DISTRIBUTION WE LEARNED ABOUT

HIS FAMILY. THEN WE TOOK JOSE

SHOP TO REPLACE THE TOOLS AND A

LOCK TO KEEP THEM SAFE.

THEY BOUGHT ME TOOLS AND

HAMMER AND WHEEL BARRELO AND

NEW

TOOLS AND BETTER THAN THE ONES

I

HAD.

WELL HERE IN AMERICA MOST

FIVE YEAR OLDS ARE STARTING

AMERICA BUT IN EASTERN INDIA

ONE

LITTLE BOY SPENT THE DAYS ON

THE

STREET BEGGING FOR FOOD.

EVERYDAY FROM DAWN UNTIL

DUSK

HE SINGS THROUGHOUT THE SMALL

VILLAGE IN INDIA. IT'S THE

ONLY

WAY THE FIVE YEAR OLD CAN MAKE

MONEY FOR FOOD.

MY FATHER DIED BEFORE I WAS

BORN AND MY MOTHER DIED THE DAY

SHE GIVE BIRTH TO ME.

HIS GRANDMOTHER SELLS FIRE

WOOD FROM THE JUNGLE AND HE

BEGS

AT THE SHOPS. SHE MAKES ENOUGH

TO LIVE BUT SOMETIMES IT'S NOT

ENOUGH TO BUY FOOD FOR THEM

BOTH

SO SHE DECIDED TO TAKE HIM TO A

CHILDRENS' HOME SUPPORTED BY

"ORPHANS PROMIS" HERE HE HAS

FOOD EVERYDAY AND ENROLLED IN A

CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.

BEFORE COMING HERE I HAD TO

WORK ALL THE TIME BUT NOW I CAN

GO TO SCHOOL AND LEARN MANY

THINGS.

IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG BUT HE

ASKED JESUS TO BE HIS LORD AND

SAVIOR. NOW INSTEAD OF SINGING

FOR FOOD HE THINGS ABOUT GOD'S

LOVE.

MY NEW FRIENDS LOVE ME SO

MUCH. I REALLY LIKE IT HERE.

OUR LITTLE BOY WAS NO WHERE

TO BELONG AND HOPE FOR THE

FUTURE AND YOU CHANGE TODAY

ALL.

AND $2,200. ALL OF THAT GETS

MAXED TO THIS CHALLENGE. I

WANT

TO TAKE YOU TO MEET A COUPLE

WHOSE CHILD WAS DYING. THIS IS

HOW PEOPLE LIKE YOU SAVED HIS

LIFE.

LITTLE DEON STARTED GETTING

SICK WHEN HE WAS A BABY AND HIS

PARENTS DIDN'T KNOW WHY.

WE TOOK HIM TO A DOCTOR IN

THE CITY TWO DIFFERENT TIMES

BUT

HE COULDN'T DIAGNOSE WHAT WAS

WRONG WITH HIM.

OUR HEARTS WERE BROKEN AND

SAD TO SEE OUR SON GROWING

WEAKER EACH DAY.

THAT'S WHEN THE FAMILY

LEARNED ABOUT A CLINIC AND THIS

IS WHEN HE WAS FIRST DIAGNOSED

AND HAD MALNUTRITION.

HE WAS SO WEAK HE COULDN'T

STAND UP.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

IMMEDIATELY GAVE DEON AN

ANTIBIOTIC AND FORMULA TO HELP

HIM GAIN WEIGHT

AND WHEN WE WENT THERE WE SAW

HOW THE WHOLE FAMILY WAS

GETTING

SICK AND WE REPLACED THE

MATTRESSES AND AN OUT DOOR

KITCHEN.

I THANK YOU WITH ALL MY

HEART.

IT'S A GLORIOUS DAY.
