The 700 Club - Sept. 25, 2013

Starting as a realtor right before the bottom fell out of the housing market left Burt and Natalia with an income that couldn’t pay the bills. They were also forced to move out of their house. Now, the couple says they’ve “discovered the ... Read Transcript


WELCOME TO THE 700 CLUB.

REPUBLICAN SENATOR TED CRUZ AND

HIS TEA PARTY ALLIES TOOK

CONTROL OF THE FLOOR OVERNIGHT.

HE LOST A MARATHON SPEECH THAT

OBAMACARE MUST BE DE FUNDED.

AS OF THIS MORNING SENATOR

CRUZ WHAT STILL AT IT.

HE SAID HE'S ONLY LISTENING TO

MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WHO WANTS

SOMEONE TO FINALLY TAKE A SAND.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THAT STORY.

I INTEND TO SPEAK IN

OPPOSITION TO OBAMACARE.

SENATOR CRUZ SAID HE WOULD

SPEAK UNTIL HE COULD NO LONGER

STAND.

CRUZ AND HIS ALLY HAVE

CONTROLLED THE FLOOR SINCE

TUESDAY AFTERNOON.

THEIR AIM?

TO DELAY THE SENATE FROM VOTING

ON THE HOUSE SPENDING BILL.

I WANT TO STAND AND FIGHT

FOR THE MORE THAN 1.6 MILLION

AMERICANS WHO HAVE SIGNED A

NATIONAL PETITION AGAINST

OBAMACARE, AND TO THE MILLIONS

MORE WHO DIDN'T BECAUSE THEY

WERE TOLD BY A POLITICIAN IT'S

NOT POSSIBLE.

CRUZ SUPPORTS THE BILL WHICH

FUNDS THE GOVERNMENT PASS THE

SEPTEMBER 30TH DEADLINE, BUT DE

FUNDS OBAMACARE.

HE KNOWS THAT MEASURE HAS NO

CHANCE OF PASSING IN THE

DEMOCRATICALLY CONTROLLED

SENATE, BUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

DON'T LIKE OBAMACARE.

AND, SO, CRUZ CONTINUES.

IT IS NOW LATE AT NIGHT.

I'M GOING TO VENTURE TO SAY

MOST MEMBERS OF THE UNITED

STATES SENATE ARE HOME IN BED

ASLEEP WHILE AMERICA LIVES THE

NIGHTMARE.

THE LATEST ABC NEWS

WASHINGTON POST POLL SHOWS WHEN

IT COMES TO OBAMACARE'S IMPACT,

36% SAY IT WILL ALREADY

WORSENED THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM

OVERALL.

ONLY 19% ZIM PROPERTIV.

AMERICANS ARE ALSO CONFEWED

OVER WHAT OBAMACARE WILL MEAN

FOR THEM.

62% SAY THEY LACK THE

INFORMATION NEEDED TO

UNDERSTAND THE CHANGES.

SEE IMPROVEMENT

AS THE CLOCK CONTINUES TICKING

PRESIDENT OBAMA TEAMED UP WITH

PRESIDENT CLINTON TO HELP THE

HEALTH CARE LAW.

YOU CAN MANAGE HEALTH CARE

AND CUT INFLATION.

HOME DEPOT AND WALGREENS

HAVE ALREADY CUT SEVERAL

HUNDRED THOUSANDS EMPLOYEES

LOOSE GIVING THEM A VOUCHER TO

FIND HEALTH CARE UNDER THE

OBAMACARE HEALTH CARE CHANGES.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM.

JOHN JOSEPH HAS THIS STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

JOHN?

GORDON, FOUR CHRISTIAN

UNIVERSITIES IN OKLAHOMA HAVE

FILED SUIT AGAINST THE

OBAMACARE BIRTH CONTROL MANDATE.

SOUTHERN NAZARENE UNIVERSITY,

OKLAHOMA, BAPTIST AND MID

AMERICA CHRIS CHANCE UNIVERSITY

ARGUE THE MANDATE VIOLATES

THEIR BELIEFS.

ONE SCHOOL CITED ITS COMMITMENT

TO SUPPORT THE UNBORN.

GOD IS GOD, NOT THE GOVERNMENT,

AND WE MUST OBEY GOD RATHER

THAN MEN.

> KENYA HAS BEGUN THREE DAYS

OF MOURNING FOR THOSE KILLED IN

THIS WEEK'S DEADLY MALL ATTACK.

ISLAMIC TERRORISTS WOUNDED 60

PEOPLE AND WOUNDED HUNDRED

OTHERS.

FIVE AMERICANS AMONG THE

WOUNDED.

THE DEATH TOLL IS EXPECTED TO

RISE BECAUSE BODIES ARE STILL

TRAPPED UNDER THE RUB HE WILL.

OFFICIALS NOW CONTROL THE MALL

AFTER THE FOUR-DAY STANDOFF.

THERE ARE FEARS SOME TERRORISTS

COULD BE HIDING.

THE MALL ATTACK WAS THE

DEADLIEST SCARE SINCE THE 1 08

BOMBING EMBASSY WHICH KILLED

200 PEOPLE.

> WORRIED NOT TO BE FOOLED BY

THE PEACEFUL WORDS OF IRAN'S

NEW PRESIDENT.

HE TOLD THE UNITED NATIONS HIS

COUNTRY WANTS TO RESTART

NUCLEAR NEGOTIATIONSES, BUT

SPOKESMAN WARNS IRAN WILL DO

WHATEVER IT TAKES TO DECEIVE

THE WEST.

WHAT WE'RE CONCERNED ABOUT

IS UNDER THE SMOKE SCREEN OF

PROFESSED GOOD INTENTIONS THAT

IRAN IS TAKING A PAGE OUT OF

THE NORTH KOREAN PLAY BOOK,

THAT IN PROFESSING THEIR

COMMITMENT TO NONPROLIFERATION,

THAT THEY ARE ILLICITLY

CONTINUING TO BUILD A NUCLEAR

WEAPON AND ALL THE FACTS POINT

IN THAT DIRECTION.

HE LOOK FORWARD TO

DISCUSSING THE MATTER WITH

PRESIDENT OBAMA AT THE WHITE

HOUSE NEXT WEEK.

> GORDON, WHAT DO YOU THINK

WE NEED TO SEE TO CONSIDER THIS

A GENUINE OPENING FROM IRAN?

I WOULD WANT TO SEE ACTIONS

THAT BACK UP THE WORDS.

AND RIGHT NOW I'M VERY CAUTIOUS

ABOUT BELIEVING IRAN IS SOMEHOW

CHANGED.

KEEP IN MIND ONE OF THEIR

ACTIONS, BEN, OVER JUST THE

PAST FEW YEARS, THEY'RE THE

LARGEST FUNDER OF HEZBOLLAH,

THEY'RE THE LARGEST FUNDER OF

HAMAAS.

BOTH OF THOSE ORGANIZATIONS ARE

TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS.

THEY'RE DEDICATED, IRANIAN

LEADERS SAY WE WANT TO WIPE

ISRAEL OFF THE MAP.

THEY WANT TO TAKE IT OUT.

THEY'VE BEEN STEADILY BUILDING

A NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

AND UNTIL THOSE ACTIONS CHANGE,

I FRANKLY DON'T BELIEVE IT.

I THINK IT'S JUST YET ANOTHER

STALL TACTIC TO KEEP SANCTIONS

AWAY.

WHILE THEY CONTINUE TO DEVELOP

NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

I'D LIKE TO BELIEVE IT THE

OTHER WAY.

I'D LIKE TO BELIEVE THEY'RE

BEING GENUINE.

BUT UNTIL THEIR ACTIONS BACK UP

THEIR WORDS, I THINK WE NEED TO

BE VERY CAUTIOUS.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF THE

700 CLUB AFTER THIS.

IF YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY

TO COME BEFORE ALMIGHTY GOD TO

ASK ONE QUESTION, WHAT WOULD

THAT QUESTION BE?

WHY IS THERE SO MUCH

SUFFERING?

WILL I GO TO HEAVEN?

HOW CAN I KNOW YOU, GOD?

WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH MY

LIFE?

HOW CAN I HAVE A LIFE LINE?

FIND THE BIBLICAL SAWER TO

LIFE'S MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS.

PAT ROBERTSON TEACHERS HOW

SHALL WE, AVAILABLE NOW.

TODAY THE AVERAGE COST OF

RAISING A CHILD IN AMERICA IS

MORE THAN $240,000.

THAT'S AN INVESTMENT THEY WERE

READY TO MAKE THANKS TO A

DECISION THEY MADE EARLY IN

THEIR MARRIAGE.

BURT AND ITALIA COULD HARDLY

WAIT FOR THE DAY THEY BRING

THEIR FIRST CHILD HOME.

A NEW BABY ISN'T THE ONLY THING

THEY'RE EXCITED ABOUT.

OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS BURT'S

REAL ESTATE BUSINESS HAD BEEN

STEADILY GROWING.

MY AVERAGE SALE HAS

INCREASED MORE THAN THREE

TIMES, SO, THAT MEANS THE

AVERAGE COMMISSION HAS

INCREASED PROPORTIONATELY AS

WELL.

THEY SAY IT'S BECAUSE

THEY'VE DISCOVERED THE SECRET

TO FINANCIAL SUCCESS.

WE HAVE JUST SEEN PHENOMENAL

THINGS HAPPEN AS A RESULT OF

TITHING, AND NOW AS SOON AS THE

CHECK IS DEPOSITED, WE GO

ONLINE AND START GIVING.

THAT WASN'T ALWAYS THE CASE.

WHEN THE COUPLE MARRIED, BURT

WAS TRYING TO BUILD UP HIS REAL

ESTATE BUSINESS WHEN THE BOTTOM

FELL OUT OF THE HOUSING MARKET.

THERE WASN'T ENOUGH MONEY

COMING IN.

WE HAD TO MOVE OUT OF OUR

HOUSE AND LIVE IN AN APARTMENT

AND WE HAD TO LEASE OUR HOUSE

TO GET BACK OUR FINANCIAL PART

TIME INVESTMENT.

THEY STILL STRUGGLED TO MAKE

ENDS MEET EVEN THOUGH THEY

DOWNSIZED.

IT WAS HARD.

INSTEAD OF BEING BUSY AND

PUTTING PEOPLE IN MY CAR AND

SHOWING THEM HOMES, I DIDN'T

HAVE MUCH TO DO.

WE WERE AT THE WORST POINT

FINANCIALLY, EMOTIONALLY,

SITTING HOME IN THE APARTMENT

WATCHING MOVIES ON NETFLIX AND

SHE SAID, I THINK WE SHOULD

START TITHING.

THEY HAD HEARD ABOUT TITHING

THROUGH BIBLICAL TEACHING

THROUGH WATCHING THE 700 CLUB

BUT THEY NEVER ACTED ON IT

UNTIL NOW.

WE DECIDED TO GIVE BECAUSE

IT DIDN'T FEEL LIKE 10% WAS

GOING TO MAKE ANYTHING WORSE.

THEN EVEN IN A DEPRESSED

MARKET BURT'S REAL ESTATE

BUSINESS STARTED PICKING UP,

JUST KEPT GETTING BETTER.

2009'S INCOME WAS BETTER

THAN '8.

WE CONTINUED TITHING 10%

STRAIGHT OFF THE TOP OFF THE

GROSS.

2010'S INCOME WAS MORE THAN

2009'S.

2011 HIGHER THAN 2010.

2012 WAS HIGHER THAN 2011, AND

2013 DOUBLED 2012.

DURING THAT TIME THEY

CONTINUED TITHING TO THEIR

CHURCH.

THEY ALSO STARTED GIVING TO THE

700 CLUB.

WE WOULD PUT OUR MONEY WHERE

OUR HEART WAS.

THAT WAS A TURNING POINT.

IT INCREASED SO MUCH BECAUSE

THAT'S WHAT THAT MINISTRY DOES.

WE WANTED TO BE A PART OF IT.

BURT AND NATALIE SAY THEIR

FINANCES HAVE NEVER BEEN BETTER.

THEY SINCE MOVED INTO A NEW

HOME IN TIME TO GET THE BABY

ROOM READY.

THEY SAY IT'S BECAUSE OF THEIR

GIVING AND GOD'S FAITHFULNESS.

NOW TODAY WHEN WE TITHE IT'S

NOT BLIND FAITH.

WE HAVE EXPERIENCE.

WE HAVE A TRACK RECORD WITH HIM

PROVIDING.

WHEN YOU TRUST GOD WITH THAT

MONEY, YOU'RE GOING TO END UP

TRUSTING HIM WITH EVERY ASPECT

OF YOUR LIFE AND IT WILL BE THE

BEST DECISION THAT YOU CAN MAKE.

BURT AND NATALIE LEARNED THE

SECRET AND IT'S IN PROVERBS

CHAPTER 3.

HONOR THE LORD WITH YOUR

POSSESSIONS AND WITH THE FIRST

FRUITS OF ALL YOUR INCREASE SO

YOUR BARNS WILL BE FILLED WITH

PLENTY AND YOUR VATS WILL

OVERFLOW WITH NEW WINE.

IF YOU PUT GOD FIRST, EVEN IN

THE MIDDLE OF DIFFICULTY, IF

YOU PUT HIM FIRST, THEN HE

HONORS HIS WORD AND HE WILL

BLESS YOU.

> WHEN CYNTHIA LOST HER JOB

SHE WAS OUT OF WORK SEVEN

MONTHS.

IN THAT TIME SHE NEVER MISSED A

CAR PAYMENT OR MORTGAGE PAYMENT

AND HERE'S HOW SHE DID IT.

I WASN'T IN CONTROL OF MY

MONEY.

MY MONEY WAS IN CONTROL OF ME

BECAUSE I WOULD SEE SOMETHING,

I'D GO GET IT.

I WORKED HARD FOR IT AND THE

VOICES TELL YOU THAT YOU

DESERVE IT.

THAT'S THE MIND-SET CYNTHIA

HORTON ADOPTED AS A YOUNG

CAREER WOMAN.

I WOULD CHANGE CARS EVERY

TWO YEARS BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I

THOUGHT WE WERE SUPPOSED TO DO.

JUST WENT ON SPENDING SPREES

BECAUSE I HAD MONEY TO DO

SOUGHTV

EVENTUALLY MOST OF HER MONEY

WENT TO PAYING BILLS AND

CREDITORS.

I REMEMBER I'D HAVE TO SPEND

A LOT OF TIME WRITING

EVERYTHING DOWN, EVERY PENNY

THAT I WAS GOING TO SPEND.

IF ANYTHING CAME IN $2 OVER, I

WAS GOING TO BE IN A BIND.

SHE STARTED WATCHING THE 700

CLUB.

I STARTED HEARING THESE

PRINCIPLES THAT WERE VERY

FOREIGN TO ME, YOU KNOW, ABOUT

GIVE AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO

YOU.

CYNTHIA DECIDED TO BECOME A

CBN PARTNER.

I REMEMBER WRITING THAT

FIRST CHECK.

IT WAS, YOU KNOW, I THOUGHT

ANGELS WERE GOING TO BE SINGING

BECAUSE IT WAS SUCH A HUGE STEP

FOR ME.

CYNTHIA STILL DIDN'T HAVE A

HANDLE ON SPENDING, THOUGH, AND

HER DEBT GREW TO $30,000.

AS LONG AS YOU CAN PAY THAT

MONTHLY PAYMENT LIFE WAS GOOD,

AND IT WASN'T GOOD.

THAT WASN'T THE WAY TO LIVE.

THEN SHE LOST HER JOB.

CYNTHIA SAYS SHE HAD TO DEPEND

SOLELY ON GOD, WHICH WASN'T

ALWAYS EASY.

IT WAS VERY STRESSFUL FOR ME

ESPECIALLY ONE TIME IN

PARTICULAR I REMEMBER PACING

BACK AND FORTH.

I SAID, YOU KNOW, GOD, I NEED

YOUR HELP.

MY MORTGAGE PAYMENT IS DRAFTING

THE NEXT DAY.

I HAD $1.87 IN THE BANK.

THAT DAY SHE RECEIVED A

PRE-APPROVED LOAN OFFER FOR

$6,000 AT A WHOPPING 27%

INTEREST.

CYNTHIA ADMITS SHE WAS TEMPTED.

AND I'M THINKING, THIS IS A

QUICK ANSWER TO MY PROBLEM.

GOD SAID, IT MIGHT BE A QUICK

ANSWER, BUT IT'S NOT YOUR

ANSWER, AND A PERMANENT MARKER

I WROTE VOID ON THAT CHECK.

AND I CAN'T TELL YOU TO THIS

DAY HOW THAT MORTGAGE PAYMENT

DRAFTED THE NEXT DAY.

AND EVEN THOUGH MONEY WAS

TIGHT, SHE BELIEVES GOD TOLD

HER TO KEEP GIVING.

HIS SPECIFIC INSTRUCTION WAS

TO CONTINUE GIVING THE SAME

AMOUNT AS WHEN I HAD A JOB.

DURING 7 MONTHS OF

UNEMPLOYMENT, I NEVER MISSED A

HOUSE PAYMENT.

I NEVER MISSED A CAR PAYMENT.

GOD WAS FAITH FURL.

CYNTHIA LANDED A JOB AND

SAYS, GOD STARTED SHOWING HER

WAYS TO PAYOFF HER DEBT.

ONE OF THEM WAS TO GIVE MORE.

HE ASKED ME TO DOUBLE MY

GIVING TO CBN.

I SAID, DOUBLE MY GIFT?

20 WAS A STRETCH, NOW 40 WAS,

WOW.

CYNTHIA INCREASED HER GIVING.

IN TIME SHE PAID OFF ALL OF HER

DEBT AND IS STILL DEBT FREE.

SHE'S ALSO A MEMBER OF CBN'S

CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE.

CYNTHIA SAYS SHE HAS AN

UNDERSTANDING OF GIVING AND

FAITH SHE NEVER HAD BEFORE.

GIVING WAS GOD GETS 10%, 90%

IS MINE.

MY PHILOSOPHY NOW IS IT'S ALL

HIS.

I CANNOT GO WRONG HAVING

EVERYTHING I OWN IN HIS HANDS.

HE GAVE IT TO ME ANYWAY.

THAT'S ONE OF THE PRECTIONS I

LEARNED, WHEN I GIVE IT TO GOD

HE'S GOING TO DO SO MUCH MORE

WITH IT THAN I COULD EVER

IMAGINE.

AND THEN HE BLESSES ME BACK

ALONG THE WAY.

[...] PRINCIPLE

HERE'S THE PROMISE.

HERE ARE THE WORDS OF JESUS IN

LUKE CHAPTER 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 WITH THE MEASURE

YOU USE IT WILL BE MEASURED TO

YOU.

CYNTHIA LEARNED THAT SECRET AND

SHE STARTED GIVING AND GOD

STARTED BLESSING.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU

JUST HONOR HIM AND HONOR THE

PROMISE AND SAY, I BELIEVE IT.

IF JESUS SAYS IF I GIVE IT WILL

BE GIVEN UNTO ME, I CAN TRUST

HIM AND I CAN TRUST HIS

UNFAILING LOVE.

GORDON?

LIKE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS,

JOSEPH AND MELANIE WERE HIT

HARD BY THE RECESSION.

AT ONE POINT THEY HAD TO CHOOSE

BETWEEN BUYING FOOD OR BUYING

GAS TO GET TO WORK.

*

JOSEPH AND MELANIE HARDING

LOVED THE FREEDOM OF RIDING

THEIR MOTORCYCLE ON THE OPEN

ROAD.

IT REMINDS THEM OF THEIR NEW

FOUND FINANCIAL FREEDOM.

THE HARDINGS LIVE IN THE

HEARTLAND OF MICHIGAN.

TODAY THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL

ENTREPRENEURS, BUT THEY'VE

KNOWN THEIR SHARE OF HARD TIMES.

MELANIE WAS A COMPUTER DRAFTER

AND JOSEPH WAS A RESTAURANT

COOK.

STILL, LIKE MANY AMERICANS,

THEY LIVED PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK.

IT IS RAP A STRUNG.

IT'S A DAY TO DAY.

I THINK IT'S FEAR.

YOU LAY AWAKE AT NIGHT

WONDERING WHERE THAT NEXT $10

IS GOING TO COME FROM SO YOU

CAN HAVE GAS TO GET TO WORK OR

FOOD TO EAT.

[...]

IT'S JUST BASIC NEEDS.

MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A

PRISONER.

MAKES YOU FEEL, YOU KNOW, LIKE

YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO GET AHEAD.

WITH THE STRUGGLING ECONOMY,

MELANIE SAYS THEY HAD TO MAKE

SOME TOUGH DECISIONS.

DO I HAVE GAS IN MY CAR TO

GO TO MY FRIEND'S BIRTHDAY

PARTY?

OR DO I HAVE TO STAY HOME SO I

CAN GET TO WORK TOMORROW?

TWO DAYS BEFORE THE PAYCHECK

MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO PAY MY

UTILITY BILL SO I'M GOING TO

HAVE TO CHOOSE TO PAY A LATE

FEE IN ADDITION TO THAT.

OR MAYBE HAVE MY UTILITIES

TURNED OFF.

AFTER SUFFERING A BACK

INJURY, JOSEPH HAD TO LEAVE HIS

JOB.

AS HE RECUPERATED, HE STARTED

WATCHING THE 700 CLUB EVERY

MORNING.

THAT'S WHERE HE LEARNED ABOUT

THE IMPORTANCE OF GIVING.

JUST BE OBEDIENT AND JUST

GIVE GOD WHAT'S ALREADY HIS.

IT BELONGS TO HIM ANYWAY.

WATCHING THE 700 CLUB AND

HEARING THE STORIES IS WHAT

REALLY SPOKE TO HIM, REAL

PEOPLE SHARING HOW THEIR LIVES

WERE CHANGED AND THEIR FINANCES

AND BUSINESSES WERE CHANGED

FROM TITHING.

WE GOT THAT MESSAGE FROM CBN.

MELANIE HAD GROWN UP IN

CHURCH AND ALREADY KNEW ABOUT

TITHING BUT HAD BEEN

INCONSISTENT.

SHE STARTED WATCHING THE 700

CLUB WITH JOSEPH AND SOON THEY

BEGAN GIVING AS A COUPLE.

THE COMPANY MELANIE WORKED FOR

SUFFERED IN THE ECONOMY, TOO.

SHE LEFT HER JOB AND DEVELOPED

A HOME-BASED BUSINESS TO A

FULL-TIME COMMITMENT.

JOSEPH GOT BACK ON HIS FEET, HE

STARTED SELLING ITEMS HE BOUGHT

AT ESTATE AND GARAGE SALES ON

EBAY.

HE BLESSED ME WITH SO MUCH

WISDOM.

A LOT OF TIMES I BUY THINGS I'M

THINKING, WELL, MAY BE WORTH

SOMETHING.

I'D SPEND 4 OR $5 ON IT AND

IT'S WORTH 300.

IN A THREE-YEAR TIME FRAME

IT MULTIPLIED BY 10.

I GUESS THAT'S A 10TH WE GIVE

AND NOW IT'S COME BACK TO US

AND IT JUST KEEPS GROWING.

MELANIE AND JOSEPH BELOVED

GIVING TO CBN EVERY MONTH.

CBN FOLLOWS THE WORD.

WHEN I WATCH THE SHOW, I JUST

KNOW THAT GOD IS THE CENTER OF

EVERYTHING CBN DOES.

AND, SO, I REALLY WANT TO

SUPPORT AN ORGANIZATION LIKE

THAT.

JOSEPH SAYS HE NO LONGER

FEELS LIKE A PRISONER TO HIS

FINANCES.

I JUST FEEL A PEACE.

EVER SINCE I'VE BEEN TITHING, I

NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT

BILLS. THERE'S ALWAYS MONEY TO

PAY THE BILLS.

HE DOESN'T NEED OUR MONEY,

YOU KNOW.

IT'S FOR US.

TITHING IS FOR US AND IT IS AN

INVESTMENT, AND IT OPENS THE

DOOR FOR US TO BE BLESSED

FINANCIALLY SO THAT WE CAN

BLESS OTHERS.

HERE'S THE PROMISE THAT

JOSEPH AND MELANIE DISCOVERED.

YOU FIND IT IN DEUTERONOMY.

IN ALL THESE BLESSINGS SHALL

COME UPON YOU AND OVERTAKE YOU

BECAUSE YOU OBEY THE VOICE OF

THE LORD YOUR GOD.

JUST IMAGINE BLESSINGS

OVERTAKING YOU.

[...]

WHY?

BECAUSE EURO BEAD YOU'RE

OBEDIENT AND YOU SAY YOU WANT

TO DO THINGS GOD'S WAY.

THAT'S WHEN THE BLESSINGS COME.

IF YOU WANT TO START A

LIFE-STYLE OF GENEROUS GIVING

AND SAY I'M GOING TO BE

OBEDIENT TO WHAT GOD WANTS ME

TO DO AND I EXPECT A MIRACLE TO

WHAT HE'S PROMISED, CALL US TO

1-800-759-0700 AND SAY YES, I

WANT TO BE A MEMBER OF THE 700

CLUB.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF $100,000

CHALLENGE.

THEY'LL MATCH UP TO $100,000.

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

> AS A REAL ESTATE AGENT, SHE

LOST HALF HER INCOME WHEN THE

HOUSING MARKET CRASHED.

AND WITH TWO CHILDREN TO

SUPPORT, THIS SINGLE MOM WAS

SOON LIVING ON CREDIT AND

DROWNING IN DEBT.

CATHERINE RAY IS A REAL

ESTATE AGENT.

I LOVE HELPING EVERYONE, BUT

THAT FIRST-TIME HOME BUYER IS

JUST SO EXCITED.

10 YEARS AGO CATHERINE

BECAME A SINGLE MOTHER AFTER

HER DIVORCE.

DESPITE HER SUCCESSFUL CAREER,

SHE SAYS IT WAS HARD TO MAKE A

WHOLE NEW LIFE FOR HERSELF AND

HER BOYS BOBBY AND COLIN.

I NEVER SAW MYSELF BEING IN

THE SITUATION IT THAT I WOULD

FACE LIFE ALONE.

AND IT WAS JUST VERY, VERY

SCARY.

THEN IN 2007 WHEN THE

HOUSING MARKET CRASHED,

CATHERINE SAW HER INCOME CUT IN

HALF.

SHE HAD TO WIPE OUT HER SAVINGS

JUST TO PAY THE BILLS.

SO, CATHERINE TURNED TO CREDIT

CARDS.

SHE RACKED UP MORE THAN $20,000

IN CREDIT CARD DEBT.

I WAS HAVING TO BUY MY

GROCERIES ON MY CREDIT CARD

JUST TO HAVE FOOD IN THE HOUSE.

CATHERINE AND HER BOYS

ALWAYS WENT TO CHURCH AND

TITHED EVEN DURING DIFFICULT

TIMES.

SHE DECIDED TO FAST AND PRAY

AND SHE STARTED WATCHING THE

700 CLUB.

SO, A COUPLE OF TESTIMONIES

OF HOW THEY WENT OVER AND

BEYOND EVEN IN TIME OF NEED, I

THOUGHT, I CAN GO OVER AND

BEYOND, TOO.

AND I KNOW GOD WILL SHOW HIS

PROMISES FAITHFUL TO ME LIKE HE

HAS TO OTHERS.

CATHERINE CONTINUED TO GIVE

TO HER CHURCH AND JOIN THE 700

CLUB.

AND GOD TOOK CARE OF HER NEEDS.

IS THIS AMAZING EVERY TIME

HOW SOMETHING WOULD COME

THROUGH TO HELP ME TO MEET THE

FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS THAT I

HAVE.

ONE YEAR LATER CATHERINE

INCREASED HER GIVING TO THE 700

CLUB GOLD LEVEL.

SOON AFTER SHE SOLD A LISTING

THAT GAVE HER THE BIGGEST

COMMISSION SHE'D EVER MADE.

BY THE END OF THE YEAR SHE HAD

EARNED $25,000 MORE THAN THE

YEAR BEFORE.

CATHERINE'S YOUNGER SON COLIN

BELIEVES IN TITHING AND HAS

SEEN GOD REWARD HIS OBEDIENCE

TO GIVE.

I GOT MY FIRST JOB, MY MOM

ASKED ME IF I WAS GOING TO

TITHE.

I SAID, OF COURSE I'M GOING TO

TITHE BECAUSE IT WAS ABOUT 50

BUCKS, BUT I DIDN'T MIND.

I WAS REALLY PROUD OF HIM.

CATHERINE IS STEADILY PAYING

OFF HER CREDIT CARDS.

SHE KNOWS WHEN SHE'S FAITHFUL

TO GIVE, GOD IS FAITHFUL TO

KEEP HIS PROMISES.

I'VE LEARNED TO HAVE A

DEEPER RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

AND TO TRUST HIM FOR ALL MY

NEEDS, THAT HE IS MY SOURCE,

NOT REAL ESTATE, BUT THAT GOD

IS MY SOURCE.

GOD IS THE SOURCE.

THE BIBLE SAYS HE IS THE ONE

THAT GIVES US THE POWER TO GET

WEALTH.

HERE'S WHAT IT ALSO SAYS.

DEUTERONOMY CHAPTER 30.

LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD.

WALK IN HIS WAYS.

KEEP HIS COMMANDS.

THEN YOU WILL LIVE AND INCREASE

AND THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL

BLESS YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT, CALL US

NOW, 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE A

MEMBER OF THE 700 CLUB.

SOME OF YOU WHO ARE ALREADY 700

CLUB MEMBERS, WHY DON'T YOU

DID, WHICH IS INCREASING AND

GOING TO 700 CLUB GOLD, $40 A

MONTH.

THERE IS ALSO A THOUSAND CLUB,

THANKS, GORDON.

WHEN YOU JOIN THE 700 CLUB,

THIS DVD THAT I'M HOLDING RIGHT

HERE IS OUR GIFT TO YOU.

IT'S THE LATEST TEACHING BY PAT

ROBERTSON CALLED HOW SHALL WE

NOW LIVE?

AND HERE'S WHAT ONE VIEWER HAD

TO SAY ABOUT THIS DYNAMIC NEW

TEACHING.

I DON'T THINK A LOT OF

AMERICANS REALLY HAVE A CLUE.

I THINK WE'VE KIND OF BECOME A

CULTURE THAT IS TRYING TO BE

ACCEPTING OF EVERYBODY, TRYING

NOT TO STEP ON ANYBODY'S TOES

AND OFFEND ANYONE.

I RECENTLY WATCHED PAT

ROBERTSON TEACHES HOW SHALL WE

NOW LIVE AND I LIKED IT BECAUSE

HE SPOKE TRUTH AND I THINK THAT

WE HAVE TO GET BACK TO THE

BASIC OF SPEAKING TRUTH AND NOT

BEING ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL,

NOT BEING ASHAMED OF JESUS

BECAUSE THAT'S THE ONLY WAY

WE'RE GOING TO CHANGE THIS

WORLD.

HOW SHALL WE NOW LIVE?

A LOT OF PEOPLE LOVE THIS.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE IT, IT'S

OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN YOU CALL

NOW, 1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

> NOW, IF YOU'RE READY TO GET

BLESSED LIKE YOU'VE NEVER BEEN

BLESSED BEFORE, IF YOU'VE NEVER

GIVEN, YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE SAYS

YOU HAVE TO GIVE TO RECEIVE AND

YOU CAN NEVER OUTGIVE GOD.

WELL, I WANT YOU TO KNOW WHAT

THAT FEELS LIKE BECAUSE THERE

CHILDREN ALL OVER THE WORLD WHO

CHILDREN LIKE HI WHO WAS FORCE

TODAY DROP OUT OF SCHOOL AND

WORK ALL DAY LONG IN THE FIELDS

OF VIETNAM.

AFTER HIS FATHER DIED AND

HIS MOTHER ABANDONED HIM,

TEN-YEAR-OLD HI WENT TO LIVE AT

A NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE IN ORDER TO

EARN HIS KEEP, HE TOOK CARE OF

THE NEIGHBOR'S COW.

I SPENT ALL DAY LOOKING FOR

IT.

I WAS SO WORRIED I WOULD HAVE

TO WORK FOR IT.

THINGS WEREN'T GOING WELL

WHERE HE LIVED.

HE FACED CONSTANT HUNGER AND

HAD TO DROP OUT OF SCHOOL TO

WATCH THE COWS.

THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH FOOD AT

THE HOUSE.

WHEN I WAS HUNGRY, I WOULD

CLIMB UP A TREE TO GET SOME

FRUIT TO EAT.

THEN A CHILDREN'S HOME

SUPPORTED BY CBN ORPHAN'S

PROMISE HEARD ABOUT THE BOY AND

TOOK HIM IN.

HE NO LONGER MISSES MEALS AND

HE WAS ABLE TO RETURN TO SCHOOL.

THE FIRST DAY BACK TO

SCHOOL, I HAD NEW SHOES AND NEW

SCHOOL BAG.

I AM SO HAPPY LIVING HERE AT

THE CHILDREN'S HOME WITH MY NEW

FRIENDS.

HI FEELS LIKE HE'S PART OF A

I LOVE LISTENING TO THE

THEY TAKE CARE OF ME.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR HELPING ME.

HI IS PART OF A FAMILY

AGAIN, AND YOU MADE THAT

POSSIBLE.

LITTLE BOY?

GORDON?

WELL, TAKING CARE OF A NEW

BABY CAN BE OVERWHELMING FOR

ANY PARENT.

BUT ONE COUPLE IN CHINA HAD AN

EXTRA CHALLENGE.

THEY WEREN'T SURE THEIR BABY

WOULD LIVE TO SEE HER FIRST

BIRTHDAY.

WHEN MRS. LU SAW JAW YIN AT

THE ORPHANAGE, THERE WAS A

CONNECTION.

I WANTED TO HOLD HER.

HER SPARKLING EYES LOOKED AT ME

AND SHE SEEMED TO SAY, HELP ME,

I WANT A MOMMY AND DADDY,

PLEASE TAKE ME HOME.

IF SHE SAID YES, SHE KNEW

SHE AND HER HUSBAND WOULD FACE

MANY CHALLENGES BECAUSE JAW YIN

HAD A CLEFT LIP AND PALATE.

I PRAYED TO THE LORD AND

ASKED WHAT I SHOULD DO.

AND I FELT LIKE HE SHOULD SAY,

JUST TAKE HER AND DON'T WORRY

ABOUT IT.

AND GETTING HER TO YOU.

SO, THE LU'S ADOPTED JAW YIN.

THE FIRST FEW MONTHS WERE HARD.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO FEED

JAW YIN.

SHE CONSTANTLY CRIED AND CHOKED

ON THE MILK I GAVE HER.

SHE WAS SO HUNGRY.

AND ONLY GAINED ONE POUND IN

TWO MONTHS.

I WANTED TO CRY.

JAW YIN NEEDED CLEFT LIP

SURGERY SOON.

I WAS AFRAID SHE WAS GOING TO

DIE OR SHE WOULDN'T EVER BE

ABLE TO SPEAK RIGHT.

AND THEN SHE WOULD BE MOCKED

HER WHOLE LIFE.

MR. LU COULDN'T AFFORD THE

SURGERY.

HE'S A COAL MINOR AND MAKES

ONLY $32 A MONTH.

SO, EVERY DAY THE COUPLE PRAYED

FOR A MIRACLE.

I ASKED THE LORD TO PLEASE

SAVE MY BABY'S LIFE.

I KNOW HE LOVE LITTLE ONES AND

THAT HE HAD A PLAN TO HELP HER.

I JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW IT WOULD

HAPPEN.

THEN THE LUS HEARD ABOUT HOW

CBN HELPS PROVIDE SURGERY FOR

CHILDREN LIKE THEIRS.

I KNEW THE LORD HAD HEARD

OUR PRAYERS.

I WENT HOME AND HELD MY BABY

AND SAID, YOU ARE GOING TO BE

CURED.

YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A PERFECT

LIP AND A BEAUTIFUL SMILE.

I LAID HER DOWN AND THANKED THE

LORD.

JAW YIN WAS IN AND OUT OF

THE OPERATING ROOM AND HEALED

IN NO TIME.

WHEN I SAW HER AFTER

SURGERY, I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY

EYES.

SHE'S A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE FLOWER.

THANK YOU, CBN.

ABOUT LIFE, OF COURSE, AND IN

HIS LATEST TEACHING PAT

ROBERTSON SHOWS YOU HOW TO FIND

THE ANSWER IN THE BIBLE.

HERE'S WHAT ONE VIEWER HAD TO

SAY ABOUT THIS NEW DVD, HOW

SHALL WE NOW LIVE?

I JUST SAW PAT ROBERTSON

TEACH US HOW SHALL WE NOW LIVE.

OVER THE COURSE OF MY CHRISTIAN

LIFE I'VE HAD THOSE QUESTIONS

MYSELF AND WANTED TO FIND

ANSWERS TO THEM.

SO, IT REALLY CHALLENGED ME TO

DIG DEEPER, TO FIND OUT THE

ANSWERS FOR MYSELF.

I THINK THIS IS A GOOD DVD AT

THIS TIME IN OUR COUNTRY

BECAUSE WE NEED TO BE READY FOR

THOSE ANSWERS TO CONTINUE TO

EQUIP PEOPLE AND RAISE UP

DISCIPLE AND FOLLOWERS OF

CHRIST TO DO A GREAT WORK.

THE BIBLE SAYS, GET WISDOM,

AND WITH THAT GET UNDERSTANDING.

GOD WANTS TO ANSWER YOUR

QUESTIONS EVEN MORE THAN YOU

EVEN WANT TO ASK HIM BECAUSE

HE'S SO GOOD, HE LOVES YOU.

HE'S GOT A PLAN AND A PURPOSE

FOR YOUR LIFE.

WELL, IF YOU'VE GOT A LOT OF

QUESTIONS, WE'VE GOT A LOT OF

ANSWERS IN PAT ROBERTSON'S NEW

TEACHING HOW SHALL WE NOW LIVE?

BIBLICAL ANSWERS TO TODAY'S TOP

QUESTIONS.

BUT WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS,

THESE.

GORDON?

WELL, MOST PEOPLE TAKE 15 OR

30 YEARS TO PAYOFF A MORTGAGE.

BUT BILL LENDER MAN PAID OFF

HIS HOUSE IN JUST SEVEN YEARS,

AND TODAY HE'S DEBT FREE.

HERE'S HOW HE DID IT.

BILL LENDER MAN IS A FIFTH

GRADE TEACHER FROM SCOTTSDALE,

ARIZONA WHO IS LOOKING FOR WAYS

TO HELP PEOPLE.

MY ENTIRE BACKYARD IS

DEDICATED TO GROWING FOOD TO

FEED PEOPLE.

I HAVE 7 PLUM TREES, 15 APPLE

TREES, .

BILL HASN'T ALWAYS BEEN THE

GIVER HE IS TODAY.

EVEN THOUGH HE FAITHFULLY

TITHED SINCE HIS TEACHING JOB

HE SAYS HE DIDN'T MANAGE THE

REST OF HIS MONEY WELL.

NOT ONLY DID HE MAKE BAD

INVESTMENTS EARLY ON, HE

REFINANCED HIS HOUSE AND HAD

HARDLY ANY EQUITY AFTER 13

YEARS.

SO, BILL ASKED GOD FOR HELP.

ONE DAY I WAS JOGGING IN THE

PARK AND JESUS SPOKE TO ME AND

HE SAID, BILL, PAYOFF MY HOUSE

AND I'LL PAYOFF YOUR HOUSE.

BILL IMMEDIATELY BEGAN

GIVING BEYOND HIS TITHE TO HELP

HIS CHURCH PAYOFF SOME LOANS.

SO, WHEN I WAS INSPIRED BY

GOD TO START ALSO GIVING

OFFERINGS, THAT'S WHEN GOD

OPENED THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN

AND SENT OUT A BLESSING TO ME

THAT I COULDN'T CONTAIN.

BILL SAYS IT WASN'T LONG

BEFORE HE STARTED TO MAKE A LOT

OF EXTRA MONEY FROM SOME

TEXTBOOKS HE'D WRITTEN.

I KNEW THAT BY GIVING TO GOD

THINGS WOULD HAPPEN AND THINGS

DID HAPPEN.

AND BEFORE I KNEW IT, MY HOUSE

WAS PAID OFF.

LATER HE SOLD THAT HOUSE AND

MOVED INTO A BIGGER ONE.

IN JUST SEVEN YEARS IT WAS PAID

OFF, TOO.

IT IS IT'S BEEN BILL'S GOLD

EVER SINCE TO GIVE ABOVE HIS

TITHE TO HIS CHURCH AND CBN.

GIVE AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN

TO YOU, GOOD MEASURE PRESSED

DOWN SHAKEN TOGETHER RUNNING

OVER.

IT'S SO ESSENTIAL, BUT I CAN'T

IMAGINE LIVING WITHOUT GIVING

TO GOD.

COULDN'T IMAGINE LIVING

WITHOUT GIVING TO GOD.

WHEN YOU GIVE AND YOU GIVE

GENEROUSLY, THAT'S WHEN THE

BLESSINGS COME.

IF I CAN GET A DRUM ROLL.

WE'VE GOT SOME WONDERFUL

GENEROUS NEWS OF EXISTING CBN

PARTNERS WHO SAY 100,000 ON A

CHALLENGE IS NOT ENOUGH.

THEY WANT TO ADD 150 TO IT.

TAKE IT TO $250,000.

LORD, WE ASK FOR A BLESSING

OVER THIS.

AND WE ASK FOR BLESSING FOR THE

PARTNERS WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE

TO INCREASE THESE CHALLENGE.

AND WE ASK FOR BLESSING FOR

THOSE WHO ARE WATCHING RIGHT

NOW.

BLESS THEM, ENCOURAGE THEM, FOR

WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS' NAME,

AMEN.

> YOU HEARD IT, 250 ON A

CHALLENGE, 19 MINUTES 20

SECONDS TO MAKE IT.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO

GIVE US A CALL, 1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

IN PARTS OF NIGERIA LOOKING

FOR WATER IS A JOB THAT NEVER

ENDS.

FOR THE WOMEN IN ONE VILLAGE,

GETTING WATER MEANT ACTUALLY

SPENDING THE NIGHT IN A

RIVERBED.

AS THE SUN BEATS DOWN ON

NORTHERN NIGERIA, FAMILIES

SPEND THE ENTIRE DAY FARMING.

POUF AND HER CHILDREN WORK LONG

HOT HOURS WITHOUT A DRINK.

WE GET BACK HOME AND THE

CHILDREN WOULD BE SO THIRSTY

THEY WOULD CRY.

I CRIED, TOO, BECAUSE WE HAD NO

WATER.

TO GET WATER, SHE WALKED

MORE THAN A MILE TO A DRY

RIVERBED.

SHE DUG A HOLE AND WAITED.

AS THE WATER SEEPED IN, IT WAS

BROWN AND MUDDY, BUT IT WAS ALL

SHE HAD.

MANY DAYS I SLEPT AT THE

RIVER BANK WITH MY BABY BECAUSE

WE HAD TO WAIT A LONG TIME FOR

THE HOLE TO FILL WITH WATER.

IF OTHER WOMEN CAME WHO WERE

STRONGER THAN ME, THEY WOULD

TAKE THE WATER AND I WOULD WAIT

AGAIN.

THOSE OF US WHO WAITED SUFFERED

POISONOUS INSECT BITES AND GOT

INFECTION.

IN THIS VILLAGE, EVERY

FAMILY FACED THE SAME STRUGGLE.

THEY BARELY HAD ENOUGH WATER TO

COOK OR BATHE SO THE CHILDREN

WERE CONSTANTLY SICK.

WHEN HER BROTHER, A PASTOR CAME

TO VISIT, SHE TALKED TO HIM

ABOUT THE VILLAGE'S DESPERATE

NEED FOR WATER.

HER BROTHER WAS A MISSIONARY

WHO PARTNERED WITH CBN AND HE

KNEW WE COULD HELP.

BEFORE LONG, THERE WAS A

BRAND-NEW WELL RIGHT IN THE

CENTER OF THE VILLAGE.

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER,

EVERYONE HAD FRESH, CLEAN

DRINKING WATER.

WE ASKED FOR HELP AND THE

HELP CAME.

NOW WE HAVE WATER.

WE CAN DRINK, COOK, AND KEEP

OUR CHILDREN CLEAN AND HEALTHY.

THIS IS A GIFT FROM YOU THAT

SHAPED OUR LIVES AND SAVED OUR

CHILDREN.

CBN, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

NOT JUST AN ABUNDANCE OF

WATER, BUT QUALITY, CLEAN,

CLEAR WATER, SOMETHING THEY HAD

NEVER HAD BEFORE AND GOD USED

YOU TO BRING IT TO THEM.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO BE A PART

OF THAT.

WE'RE DOING IT ALL AROUND THE

WORLD WITH WATER, WITH MEDICAL

RELIEF, WITH EDUCATION, FINDING

HOMES FOR CHILDREN WHO ARE

ALONE.

WE NEED YOU TO HELP US.

SO, PLEASE GO TO YOUR PHONE AND

CALL RIGHT NOW.

THERE'S OUR TOLL FREE NUMBER,

> WELL, WHEN AN EARTHQUAKE

STRUCK THE COAST OF GUATEMALA,

OPERATION BLESSING WAS ON THE

SCENE HELPING THE 15,000

SURVIVORS.

LIKE THIS WIDOW WHO LOST HER

HUSBAND AND HER HOME IN THE IT

EARTHQUAKE.

40 SECONDS, THAT'S ALL IT

TOOK FOR AN EARTHQUAKE TO TAKE

THE LIFE OF HER HUSBAND WHERE

HE WORKED.

WHEN I HEARD MY HUSBAND'S

DEAD, I WAS IN SHOCK.

IT WASN'T UNTIL THREE DAYS

LATER THAT I REALIZED WE'D LOST

OUR HOME, TOO.

AT FIRST SHE AND HER THREE

DAUGHTERS WE HADTHV TO LIVE AT

A SHELTER.

EACH NIGHT THERE THE GIRLS

CRIED FOR THEIR DADDY AND FOR

THEIR HOME.

I TELL MY MOM TO TAKE US

FROM THE SHELTER, LET'S GO, AND

I WANTED TO BE IN MY HOUSE.

MY DAUGHTERS WOULD CAUSE ME

GREAT PAIN.

I TOLD THEM TO PUT THEIR FAITH

IN GOD, BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

TO DO.

I DIDN'T HAVE A JOB, NO MONEY

EVEN TO BUY FOOD.

THAT'S WHEN OPERATION

BLESSING ARRIVED WITH FOOD,

WATER, MEDICINE, AND BLANKETS

FOR THE 15,000 EARTHQUAKE

VICTIMS.

WE THEN DECIDED THAT SHE AND

HER CHILDREN WOULD BE AMONG THE

FIRST TO RECEIVE A BRAND-NEW

HOME.

WHEN I GOT THE NEWS THAT

OPERATION BLESSING WAS BUILDING

US A HOUSE, I THOUGHT, GOD HAS

ANSWERED MY PRAYERS AND QUICKLY.

IN A COUPLE OF DAYS HER

HOUSE WAS FINISHED AND THEY

WERE ABLE TO MOVE IN.

MY HOUSE IS VERY PRETTY.

WE REALLY LIKE IT AND ARE

HAPPY.

BUT WE KNEW THAT AS A WIDOW

SHE ALSO NEEDED A WAY TO

SUPPORT HER FAMILY.

SO, WE BOUGHT HER A COMMERCIAL

CORN GRINDER TO START A SMALL

BUSINESS.

WITH THE PROFITS SHE CAN BUY

FOOD AND PAY FOR OTHER LIVING

EXPENSES.

SHE COULD NOT BELIEVE HER EYES

WHEN WE GAVE HER THE GRINDER.

SHE TOLD US IT WAS THE VERY

THING THAT SHE HAD WANTED TO

BUY TO START A SMALL BUSINESS.

THANK YOU FOR THE GRINDER

AND MY HOUSE AND MY NEW

BUSINESS.

YOU HAVE SHOWN ME I'M NOT ALONE

AND GOD DID NOT ABANDON ME OR

MY DAUGHTERS.

THANK YOU.

IMAGINE BEING THE ANSWER TO

PEOPLE'S PRAYER AROUND THE

WORLD.

HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE JOIN

OVER THE PAST YEAR THOUSANDS

OF VOLUNTEERS HAVE JOINED

OPERATION BLESSING TO HELP THE

SURVIVORS OF SUPER STORM SANDY.

PEOPLE LIKE BURT AND JEAN, AN

ELDERLY COUPLE WITH NO MONEY TO

REBUILD THE HOME THAT THEY LOST.

BURT AND JEAN TRIED TO

SALVAGE WHAT LITTLE THEY COULD

AFTER HURRICANE SANDY RIPPED

THROUGH THEIR HOME IN BREEZY

POINT, NEW YORK.

THEY WERE ALSO IN THE MIDDLE OF

ADDING A ROOM TO THEIR SMALL

HOUSE WHEN THE STORM HIT.

THE PLASTER BOARD, THE

FLOORING WARPED, AN AREA ROTTED

OUT.

THERE WAS NOTHING THAT WAS LEFT

IN THERE.

EVERYTHING WAS THROWN OUT.

EVERYTHING.

BOTH IN THEIR 80S SPENT

THEIR SAVINGS ON THE ADDITION.

COULDN'T AFFORD THE COSTLY

REPAIRS TO THEIR HOME.

JOY OF OPERATION BLESSING

REMEMBERS MEETING THE FAMILY.

WHEN WE MET JEAN AND BURTH

WE KNEW THIS IS A COUPLE WE

NEEDED TO HELP.

WE SAW WHAT THEY WENT THROUGH.

THE EFFORTS THROUGH THE ENTIRE

COMMUNITY WAS AN INSPIRATION TO

US.

OPERATION BLESSING

VOLUNTEERS WORKED TIRELESSLY.

THE METS'S THOUGHT THEY WERE

JUST GUTTING THE HOUSE.

WHEN THE COUPLE CAME IN THREE

WEEKS LATER THEY WERE IN FOR A

BIG SURPRISE.

IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.

WHEN SHE OPENED THE DOOR AND

WE SAW THE REST OF THE HOUSE,

IT WAS ALMOST MORE THAN YOUR

HEART COULD TAKE.

I MEAN, YOU JUST DIDN'T KNOW

HOW TO DEAL WITH IT EMOTIONALLY

AND GRATEFULNESS AND

APPRECIATION TO ALL THE PEOPLE

THAT DID THE WORK.

WHEN I WALKED IN THIS

AFTERNOON, I REALLY DIDN'T

BELIEVE THAT WAS MY HOUSE.

WHOA, IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

YOU WONDER WHERE IT ALL CAME

FROM AND WHO WOULD DO SUCH A

THING.

UNBELIEVABLE.

VERY UNBELIEVABLE.

WITH YOUR SUPPORT, OPERATION

BLESSING WILL CONTINUE HELPING

PEOPLE LIKE THE METSES AROUND

THE WORLD IN TIMES OF DISASTER.

THOSE WHO DONATED TO

OPERATION BLESSING OR CONTINUE

TO DONATE TO MAKE PEOPLE'S

LIVES FEEL MORE BLESSED, HOW

WONDERFUL.

AND HOW WONDERFUL THAT ALL

THESE VOLUNTEERS DO THE WORK

THRIVE AND HAVE A SMILE ON

THEIR FACE AND LOVE IN THEIR

HEART.

BURT AND JEAN, YOU HAVE TO

LOVE THEM, DON'T YOU?

CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING IN YOUR

80S AND THINKING THAT YOU'RE

MOVING FORWARD WITH ADDING ONTO

YOUR HOME, AND THEN LOSING

EVERYTHING YOU HAVE,

EVERYTHING, WITH NO ANSWER, NO

SOLUTION.

> WELL, INDONESIA IS THE

WORLD'S LARGEST MUSLIM NATION.

THANKS TO A SCHOOL STARTED BY

CBN, CHILDREN THERE ARE HEARING

THE NAME OF JESUS FOR THE VERY

FIRST TIME.

WHEN 13 YEAR OLD KERIDAN WAS

ONLY 7 HE HAD TO DROP OUT OF

SCHOOL.

HIS PARENTS SIMPLY COULDN'T

AFFORD TO SEND HIM.

I WAS REALLY SAD THAT I HAD

TO QUIT SCHOOL.

I WANTED TO CONTINUE.

THEN ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO HE

AND HIS PARENTS LEARNED ABOUT A

SCHOOL THAT HAD BEEN STARTED BY

CBN.

IT PROVIDED A FREE EDUCATION

FOR STUDENTS LIKE HIM WHO

COULDN'T AFFORD SCHOOL FEES.

I REALLY LIKE GOING HERE

BECAUSE THE TEACHERS ARE KIND

AND THE KID ARE NICE TO ME, TOO.

HE SAID WHILE HE ATTENDED

THE SCHOOL, HE RECEIVED

SOMETHING ELSE FROM CBN.

I HAD BEEN SUFFERING WITH A

HERNIA AND IT WAS BAD.

BUT WE COULDN'T AFFORD A

SURGERY.

MY BROTHERS TOLD MY TEACHER AND

CBN PROVIDED ME WITH FREE

SURGERY.

NOW I'M NO LONGER IN PAIN.

AND DURING AN AFTERNOON

PROGRAM, THE MUSLIM TEEN

LEARNED ABOUT JESUS.

AT THE CBN SCHOOL, I NEVER

HEARD ABOUT JESUS AT ALL.

THEY TAUGHT US THAT JESUS DIED

FOR OUR SINS ON THE CROSS.

IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR HIM

TO PRAY TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN.

I PRAYED TO RECEIVE JESUS

INTO MY HEART.

I THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP.

YOU GAVE ME FREE SURGERY AND A

SCHOOL TO ATTEND.

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING.
