The 700 Club - Sept. 27, 2013

Even people who are financially stable can be overcome by debt from health challenges. Gary and Sandee Coe had financial problems after illness caused Gary to lose his job and income, but they kept one commitment that opened doors to financial ... Read Transcript


GORDAN: WELCOME TO "THE 700

CLUB".

THE CLOCK IS TICKING AS AMERICA

EDGES CLOSER TO A GOVERNMENT

SHUT DOWN UNLESS CONGRESS RAISES

THE DEBT CEILING.

TERRY MEEUWSEN: HOUSE

REPUBLICANS MAY USE IS AS AN

OPPORTUNITY TO DELAY

'OBAMACARE.' HERE IS REPORTER

'OBAMACARE.'

AFTER A SENATE BILL TO KEEP

'OBAMACARE' FUNDED, IT GOES TO

THE HOUSE.

REPUBLICANS ARE LISTENING.

THE GOVERNMENT WILL HIT ITS

BORROWING LIMIT ON OCTOBER 17TH

UNLESS CONGRESS RAISES THE DEBT

CEILING.

THEY MAY USE IT TO ASK FOR A

ONE-YEAR DELAY IN IMPLEMENTING

'OBAMACARE.' THE PRESIDENT

ARGUES THE DEBT CEILING HAS

NEVER BEEN USED TO NEGOTIATE

NON-DEBT MATTERS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: NO CONGRESS

BEFORE THIS ONE HAS EVER, EVER

IN HISTORY BE IRRESPONSIBLE

ENOUGH TO THREATEN DEFAULT.

TO THREATEN AN ECONOMIC SHUT

DOWN, TO SUGGEST AMERICA NOT PAY

ITS BILLS, JUST TO TRY TO BLACK

BLACKMALE A PRESIDENT TO GIVE

THEM CONCESSION ON ISSUES THAT

HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH A BUDGET.

REPORTER: ACCORDING TO THE

"WASHINGTON POST," THEY POENT TO

25 TIMES IN THE 70S AND 80S,

CONGRESS USED THE DEBT CEILING

TO FORCE CONCESSIONS AND EXACTLY

WHAT THE CURRENT CONGRESS

INTENDS TO DO.

JOHN BOEHNER: PRESIDENT SAYS I

AM NOT GOING TO NEGOTIATE.

SORRY, THAT DOESN'T WORK THAT

WAY.

REPORTER: CHARLENE ISRAEL,

CBN NEWS.

GORDAN: I THINK THAT THE

QUICKEST WAY TO GET OVER

'OBAMACARE' IS LET IT GO INTO

EFFECT AND WHEN THE AVERAGE

AMERICAN SEES THE IMPACT,

PARTICULARLY AMERICANS AGE 27-40

WHO WILL BEAR THE BRUNT, THEN

WE'LL SEE THE CHANGE.

I WISH CAPITOL HILL WOULD START

ARGUING ABOUT THE BUDGET AND

GETTING IT TO BALANCE.

THAT WAY WE ARE NOT INTO THESE

NEVER ENDING BUDGET BATTLES AND

LIVE WITHIN OUR MEANS AND NOT

HAVE TO BORROW.

17 TRILLION IS A HUGE NUMBER AND

WILL TAKE DECADES AND KEEP

GROWING EXPONENTIALLY.

WHILE CAPITOL HILL ARGUES OVER

THE BUDGET, OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

IS ALSO NEGOTIATING WITH IRAN.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM

THE

CBN NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

REPORTER: THE HIGHEST LEVEL

CONTACT BETWEEN U.S. AND IRAN IN

SIX YEARS.

U.S. AND MEMBERS OF THE U.N.

SECURITY COUNCIL

HAVE

AGREED

TO

RESTART TALKS ON IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

I RAN'S PRESIDENT HAS ADOPTED A

MORE MODERATE APPROACH THAN HIS

PREDECESSOR.

ERICK STAKELBECK: IRANIAN

LEADERS ARE GOING TO DEVELOP

WEAPONS OF MASS DEATH.

REPORTER: PRESIDENT OBAMA

SAYS IRAN MUST PROVE COMMITMENT

WITH ACTIONS NOT JUST WORDS.

REVEREND BILLY GRAHAM HAS ADDED

HIS WORDS WITH THE CALL FOR THE

RELEASE OF PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI.

GRAHAM SENT A

LETTER

TO

IRAN'S

PRESIDENT URGING HIM TO FREE

PASTOR ABEDINI.

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND THE

STATE DEPARTMENT ATTENDED A

RALLY OUTSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE.

STATE DEPARTMENT DEPUTY

SECRETARY SAYS THEIR PRAYERS ARE

WITH HIS FAMILY AS THEY WORK TO

BRING HIM

HOME.

EVANGELICAL

BISHOP

ALIEAS WAS A

CHILD SOLDIER AND ENDURED A

BRUTAL CHILDHOOD BUT CAME TO

KNOW JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOR AND

SPREADS THE GOSPEL THROUGHOUT

AFRICA.

IF I HAD NOT ACCEPTED JESUS

AS MY PERSONAL SAVIOR.

BECAUSE OF THIS, I KEEP ON

THANKS JESUS FOR ACCEPTING ME

AND DELIVERING ME FROM MY SINS.

REPORTER: YOU CAN SEE THE

ENTIRE INTERVIEW ON "THE BRODY

FILE" ON CBNNEWS.COM.

GORDAN, HE HAS A HEART FOR JESUS

AND DESIRES TO WORK TOWARDS --

GORDAN: CONGRATULATIONS FOR

THIS WONDERFUL RECOGNITION.

I CONSIDER HIS WORK IN SOUTH

SEDAN ALL GEARED AROUND

PROVIDING FRESH WATER TO A

VILLAGE AS A MODEL FOR ALL

DEVELOPING NATIONS AS A WAY TO

LIFT VILLAGERS OUT OF POVERTY,

GET THEM OUT OF DISEASE AND A

PRODUCTIVE LIFE STYLE.

CONGRATULATIONS.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF THE

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

GORDAN: TODAY GARY AND SANDY

SELF-EMPLOYED AND LIVING IN

THEIR DREAM HOUSE.

AT ONE TIME OUT OF WORK, OUT OF

MONEY AND PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE.

TUCKED INTO THE BLACK HILLS

OF SOUTH DAKOTA LIES HISTORIC

MANSION HOME OF GARY AND SANDY.

THE PROPERTY IS A PLACE OF

CHOICE FOR WEDDINGS AND SPECIAL

EVENTS, ALSO A BUSINESS.

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.

HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

CYTOAMEGALIA VIRUS.

THEY LOST THEIR HOME.

THEY CUT BACK EXCEPT WITH

TITHING AND GIVING.

WE ARE PARTNERS WITH THE

LORD.

WE HAVE THAT REALLY CLEAR.

EVERYTHING WE HAVE DOES BELONG

TO HIM.

WE KEPT THAT COMMITMENT AND

ALL I CAN SAY IS, DOORS STARTED

OPENING FOR US THAT ONLY GOD

COULD OPEN.

BY NOW THEY STARTED A NEW

BUSINESS, TWO COMMITMENTS TO RUN

IT DEBT FREE AND GIVE OFF THE

PROFITS.

BUSINESS GREW STEADILY AND

RECOVERED FROM THEIR FINANCIAL

CRISIS.

AFTER YEARS OF STRUGGLE,

THINGS HAVE BECOME EASY.

THEY ALSO BECAME CBN

PARTNERS.

I KNOW WHEN I GIVE TO CBN,

THEY ARE FEEDING PEOPLE,

CLOTHING PEOPLE, GOING INTO

EVERY PART OF THE WORLD IF THERE

IS A DISASTER S. THEY ARE

TEACHING THE WORD OF GOD.

THEY WERE FINALLY IN THE

POSITION TO MAKE AN OFFER ON

THEIR HOME OFFERING HALF THE

ASKING PRICE.

TO THINK GOD WOULD ENTRUST US

WITH THIS PROPERTY IS THE

GOODNESS OF GOD.

TODAY THE COUPLE'S BUSINESS

HAS CONTINUED TO GROW AND THEY

ARE CONVINCED IT IS BECAUSE OF

THEIR FAITHFULNESS.

GOD HAS OPENED UP A TREASURE

ONLY HE CAN DO.

GORDAN: PSALM 35: LET THEM

SHOUT FOR JOY AND BE GLAD

BECAUSE THEY FAVOR GOD'S

RIGHTEOUS CALLS.

LET THEM SAY CONTINUALLY, LET

THE LORD BE MAGNIFIED WHO HAS

PLEASURE IN THE PROSPERITY OF

HIS SERVANT.

GET THE RIGHT IDEA ABOUT WHAT

GOD WANTS.

UNDERSTAND HE WILL TAKE PLEASURE

IN YOUR PROSPERITY, IT BRINGS

HIM JOY TO SEE YOU PROSPER AND

SUCCEED.

HE DOESN'T TAKE JOY IN SUFFERING

OR PEOPLE BEING POOR OR WORRIED

ABOUT THEIR FUTURE OR FINANCES.

HE TAKES NO JOY IN THAT.

HE TAKES JOY IN YOUR PROSPERITY.

WHAT IS THE KEY TO THAT?

THIS ISN'T SOME GET RICH QUICK

SCHEME.

KEY TO FINDING THAT AND HAVING

THE PROSPERITY GOD WANTS TO

FAVOR YOU WITH IS TO DO IT HIS

WAY, PSALM 35: LET THEM SHOUT

FOR JOY AND BE GLAD WHO FAVOR MY

RIGHTEOUS CAUSE.

WHEN YOU GET BEHIND GOD'S PLAN

AND PURPOSE AND WHAT GOD WANTS

TO DO, HIS RIGHTEOUS CAUSE.

OKAY, I AM GOING TO TAKE THE

GREAT COMMISSION SERIOUSLY.

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND HE WANTS YOU

TO TAKE CARE OF THE POOR AND

NEEDY.

HE WANTS YOU TO PROVIDE FOOD FOR

THOSE THAT CAN'T PROVIDE FOR

THEMSELVES.

WHEN YOU GET BEHIND HIS

RIGHTEOUS RIGHT CAUSE, THEN YOU

GET THE BLESSING.

THEN YOU'LL GET THE PROSPERITY.

AS A FREELANCE ARTIST, MARK

LOVED BEING HIS OWN BOSS UNTIL

THE WORK RAN OUT AND HE AND HIS

WIFE FOUND THEMSELVES BROKE AND

LIVING ON CREDIT CARDS.

PROFESSIONAL ARTIST MARK

PENDERGRASS IS A TALENTED

PAINTER, ILLUSTRATOR, SCULPTOR

AND SONG WRITER.

GOD HAS BEEN VERY WONDERFUL

TO ME.

ALL OF MY LIFE I HAVE ENJOYED

DOING WHAT I DO.

AT ONE POINT HE WAS WITHOUT A

PROJECT FOR ABOUT THREE MONTHS.

WE WERE LITERALLY DOWN TO OUR

LAST DOLLARS.

AT TIMES THEY HAD TO RELY ON

CREDIT CARDS TO PAY MORTGAGE AND

ENDED UP $40,000 IN DEBT.

WHEN THE CREDITORS CAME

KNOCKING AT THE DOOR, YOU HAVE

TO DO SOMETHING, WE HAD A LOT OF

DEBT.

WE KNEW GOD WAS GOING TO HAVE TO

DO A MIRACLE.

IN 2007, THEY STARTED

BREEDING TO MAKE MONEY AND

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB" AND

LEARNING ABOUT GIVING.

SHE BECAME A CBN PARTNER USING

THE INCOME FROM SELLING PUPPIES

AND MARK ALSO GAVE FROM HIS

BUSINESS.

THEY WOULD GET AT LEAST 10%.

FINANCIALLY THINGS GOT

BETTER.

RANDY ADMITS IT WAS HARD TO

TRUST GOD.

THEY HAD A TALK.

MARK LOVINGLY TOLD ME GOD WAS

MY SOURCE.

IT WAS LIKE A LIGHTBULB WENT

OFF.

GOD STARTED DEALING WITH ME

ABOUT TRUSTING HIM THROUGH THE

TIMES WHEN MARK DOESN'T HAVE A

PROJECT.

RANDY SAYS SHE LEARNED AN

IMPORTANT LESSON.

GIVE WITH A JOYFUL HEART.

UNDERSTAND GOD IS YOUR SOURCE.

SHORTLY AFTER RANDY CAME

ACROSS A JOB LISTING FOR AN

ILLUSTRATOR FOR CHILDREN'S

BOOKS.

THEY GAVE HIM TWO MORE

CONTRACTS.

THE COUPLE CONTINUED TO GIVE AND

GOD CONTINUED TO PROVIDE.

GOD STARTED PERFORMING

MIRACLES, JOBS COMING ALONG IT

HAS BEEN AN A FANTASTIC JOURNEY.

SINCE THEN MARK HAS HAD

PLENTY OF WORK.

THEY INCREASED THEIR GIVING TO

CBN AND NOW GIVE AT THE

FOUNDER'S LEVEL.

WE SEE THE WELLS BEING DUG

AND THE CHILDREN BEING

MINISTERED TO COUNTRIES

OVERSEAS.

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THAT.

I CAN'T GO THERE, I CAN'T DO

THAT.

BUT WE CAN SEND MONEY.

AND WE LOVE DOING THAT.

TODAY MARK WORKS FULL TIME

AND STILL GETS WORK ON THE SIDE.

HE AND RANDY ARE PRACTICALLY

DEBT FREE ALL BECAUSE THEY

TRUSTED GOD WITH THEIR FINANCES.

I HAVE GIVEN IN THE PAST,

ALWAYS DID IT OUT OF OBLIGATION,

WITH A GRUDGE FEELING.

GIVING IN A JOYFUL WAY IS THE

ONLY WAY TO GIVE.

GORDAN: IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO

GIVE.

MARK SAID WE CAN'T ALL GO BUT WE

CAN ALL SEND.

WHEN WE GET BEHIND GOD'S

RIGHTEOUS CAUSE, THIS IS WHEN WE

GET THE BLESSINGS.

WHEN YOU GIVE GENEROUSLY.

2 CORINTHIANS 9, THE FARMER WHO

PLANTS GENEROUSLY WILL GET A

GENEROUS PLOT.

YOU MUST BOTH MAKE UP YOUR OWN

MIND, GOD LOVES THE PERSON THAT

GIVES CHEERFULLY AND GOD WILL

PROVIDE ALL YOU NEED.

YOU'LL ALWAYS HAVE EVERYTHING

YOU NEED AND PLENTY LEFT OVER TO

SHARE WITH OTHERS.

THAT IS THE BIBLE PROMISE AND

YOU CAN LITERALLY BANK ON IT.

WHEN YOU GIVE CHEERFULLY FROM

YOUR HEART AND GIVE GENEROUSLY,

THEN THE BLESSINGS FLOW.

IF I CAN GET A DRUM ROLL,

EXISTING CBN PARTNERS SAY WE

LOVE GIVING GENEROUSLY AND WANT

TO CHALLENGE OTHERS TO GIFT SO

THEY CAN SHARE IN THE BLESSINGS

WE RECEIVE.

IN THE NEXT 30 MINUTES THEY'LL

MATCH DOLLAR FOR $150,000.

[APPLAUSE] LORD, WE ASK FOR

BLESSING OVER THIS AND

MULTIPLICATION.

THERE WOULD BE DOUBLE, TRIPLE,

30, 60, 100-FOLD BLESSING FOR

THE PARTNERS WHO MADE IT

POSSIBLE TO ISSUE THIS

CHALLENGE.

FOR THOSE WATCHING, SPEAK TO

THEM, ENCOURAGE THEM, FOR WE ASK

IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.

GORDAN: FOR MOST PEOPLE A PAY

CUT WOULD NOT BE GOOD NEWS.

LAST YEAR MIKE ANDERSON CHOSE TO

TAKE A JOB WITH A SMALLER

SALARY.

THAT DECISION PAID OFF IN WAYS

HE AND HIS WIFE NEVER IMAGINED.

IN THEIR 40 PLUS YEARS OF

MARRIAGE, MIKE AND VIVI ANDERSON

HAVE ALWAYS GAVE.

I HAVE NEVER STOPPED TITHING.

I KNOW IT BELONGS TO GOD AND HE

WILL TAKE CARE OF ME.

2012 BROUGHT EXCEPTIONAL

CHALLENGES.

MIKE STEPPED DOWN FROM A WELL

PAYING JOB IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY

BECAUSE THEY WERE TAKING A TOLL

ON HIS HEALTH.

A LOT OF STRESS, GETTING

ALONG IN MY YEARS.

MIKE TOOK A LESS STRESSFUL

JOB AT HALF THE SALARY.

MY INCOME WAS NOT VERY GOOD

BECAUSE I AM ON CALL, I AM A

CONSULTANT.

THEY WERE ALSO CARRYING

$30,000 IN CREDIT CARD DEBT.

WE COULDN'T SEEM TO PAY OFF

THE CREDIT CARDS.

WE ARE GOING TO GIVE MORE BACK

TO GOD.

ANDERSONS WERE ALREADY

MEMBERS OF THE "700 CLUB." THEY

DECIDED TO INCREASE THEIR

GIVING.

VIVI SAW A STORY ABOUT AN

85-YEAR-OLD COUPLE THAT LOST

EVERYTHING IN HURRICANE SANDY.

OPERATION BLESSING REBUILT THEIR

HOME.

THEY SHOW TODAY LITTLE COUPLE

WALKING IN FOR THE FIRST TIME.

THE LADY WAS SO AMAZED AND IT

TOUCHED MY HEART.

THAT DAY, I CHANGED TO PLEDGE

EXPRESS AND INCREASED TO $100.

I STARTED GETTING MORE WORK

MAKING MORE.

THEN THEY DECIDED TO TAKE

ANOTHER STEP OF FAITH.

THEY INCREASED PLEDGE TO CBN

AGAIN.

SHE HEARD GORDAN TEACH ABOUT

CREATIVE IDEAS TO INCREASE

INCOME.

GORDAN TALKED ABOUT ABOUT

WHEN YOU GIVE TO GOD, HE DOESN'T

ALWAYS GIVE YOU IN PAYCHECKS, HE

GIVES YOU CREATIVE IDEAS.

WHEN SHE DISCOVERED THEIR

WHOLE LIFE WAS INCREASING, SHE

CASHED IT IN AND BOUGHT TERM

LIFE INSURANCE AND IT INCREASED

TO $25,000.

TODAY THE ANDERSONS ARE LIVING

THEIR DREAM IN THEIR BEACH

HOUSE.

WE DIDN'T MAKE IT HAPPEN.

WE FOLLOWED GOD AND HE MADE IT

HAPPEN.

WE ARE BLESSED.

GORDAN: WE FOLLOWED GOD AND

HE MADE IT HAPPEN, PROVERBS,

BOOK OF WISDOM.

HONOR THE LORD WITH YOUR

POSSESSIONS AND FIRST FRUITS OF

ALL YOUR INCREASE SO YOUR BARNS

ARE FILL WISDOM PLENTY AND VATS

OVERFLOW WITH NEW WINE.

MIKE AND VIVI LIVING THE DREAM.

GOD SAW THEM THROUGH THE HARD

TIMES BECAUSE THEY WERE FAITHFUL

TO PUT HIM FIRST.

THEY HONORED HIM WITH THEIR

POSSESSIONS.

THEY HONORED HIM WERE THEIR

FIRST FRUITS.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, THAT IS WHEN

THE BLESSINGS FLOW.

LIFE STYLE OF THAT, CALL US NOW,

JOHN JACKSON WAS DROWNING IN

DEATH.

HE HAD TO SELL HIS CAR TO PAY

HIS BILLS.

HE MADE A DECISION THAT MORE

THAN DOUBLED HIS INCOME.

JOHN JACKSON WORKS IN A PAINT

STORE.

ON THE WEEKENDS HE WORKS AS A

FREELANCE PHOTOGRAPHER.

HE IS ALSO A PARTNER WITH CBN.

THEY SHOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING

WITH ORPHAN AGES, HERE OR AROUND

THE WORLD OR MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

TO ME, BASED ON WHAT I HAVE

LEARN EED SCRIPTURE THAT IS GOOD

GROUND.

IN 1995, JOHN GAVE $20 A

MONTH.

SOON AFTER THAT, GOD PROMPTED

HIM TO GIVE $84 A MONTH.

I PUSHED IT.

I AM LIKE I CAN'T AFFORD THAT.

HE WAS STRUGGLING WITH

FINANCES AND RIDING A BIKE TO

WORK.

HIS CAR NEEDED EXPENSIVE REPAIRS

AND HAD TO SELL IT JUST TO MAKE

ENDS MEET.

LORD, I AM TIRED OF THIS,

WHAT IS NEXT?

AGAIN YOU NEED TO GIVE, PLEDGE

EXPRESS, THIS IS HOW MUCH.

NOT JUST GIVE THIS MUCH, BUT

PLEDGE EXPRESS IT.

HE WAS SPECIFIC ON WHAT HE

WANTED ME TO DO.

FINALLY, JOHN INCREASED CBN

PLEDGE TO $84 A MONTH.

THAT IS WHEN THE PROMOTIONS

STARTED COMING.

NOW I RECENTLY GOT PROMOTED TO

STORE MANAGER.

THAT WELL OVER DOUBLED MY PAY.

IN ADDITION TO HIS PROMOTION,

GOD SAW JOHN AT WORK IN OTHER

WAYS, HIS PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS

TOOK UP.

I AM GETTING MORE HITS ON MY

WEBSITE.

I FOUND A CAR, EXCELLENT

CONDITION FOR $2,200.

THE BLUE BOOK SAYS IT IS WORTH

$3,800.

IT IS GOD.

I AM JUST FOLLOWING HIS

PRINCIPLES.

JOHN SAYS HE LEARNED THOSE

PRINCIPLES IN PART FROM WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

I HEAR CBN TALK ABOUT IT ALL

THE TIME, SOW SPARINGLY, REAP

SPARINGLY, SOW ABUNDANTLY YOU'LL

REAP ABUNDT DANTLY.

YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO SOW

INTO CBN.

BE OBEDIENT.

PARTNER WITH CBN, YOU'LL BE

BLESSED.

GORDAN: JOHN LEARNED WHEN YOU

OBEY WITH GOD SAYS THEN YOU GET

THE BLESSINGS, ISAIAH 1, IF YOU

ONLY OBEY ME AND LET ME HELP

YOU, THEN YOU WILL HAVE PLENTY.

IN JOHN'S LIFE, GOD SPOKE TO HIM

DIRECTLY.

GOD TAKES PLEASURE IN THE

PROSPERITY OF HIS SERVANT.

YOU HAVE TO FAVOR HIS RIGHTEOUS

CAUSE.

WHEN YOU DO THESE THINGS, THAT

IS WHEN THE BLESSINGS HAPPEN.

JOHN DID THAT.

GOD SPOKE TO HIM CLEARLY.

GIVE, CALL US NOW,

WE HAVE 17 MINUTES LEFT ON THE

CLOCK.

GO TO YOUR PHONES RIGHT NOW,

EVERY DOLLAR WILL BE MATCHED,

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO GET A

DEAL LIKE THAT, TERRY?

TERRY: ONLY HERE.

IN EASTERN AFRICA, MANY OF THE

MEN ARE RAISED TO BE WARRIORS.

THEY SPEND TIME AWAY FROM HOME.

WIVES AND CHILDREN OFTEN LEFT

BEHIND AND THEY HAVE TO FEND FOR

THEMSELVES.

IN ONE KENYAN VILLAGE, THEY WENT

WITHOUT BASIC NECESSITIES LIKE

FOOD AND WATER.

*

IN THE FOOTHILLS OF MOUNT

KILIMANJARO, OPERATION BLESSING

OWNS 50 LAKERS OF LAND.

IT IS A POOR AREA WHERE MANY

PEOPLE HAVE NO EDUCATION AT ALL.

FIRST THING WE DID WAS BUILD A

SCHOOL.

I NEVER THOUGHT MY CHILDREN

WOULD GET AN EDUCATION.

NOW THAT OPERATION BLESSING HAS

BUILT A 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 FIVE MILES AWAY.

THIS AREA WHERE DOZENS OF FAMILY

LIVE IS BETWEEN TWO MAJOR GAME

PARKS AND HIGH TRAFFIC ZONE FOR

ELEPHANTS.

THE ELEPHANTS DON'T MESS WITH

ADULTS BUT HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO

ATTACK CHILDREN.

THEY HAVE TO WORK HARD TO MAKE A

LIVING.

THEY CAN'T TAKE TIME OUT OF

THEIR DAY TO WALK THEIR CHILDREN

TO SCHOOL.

THAT WOULD ADD UP TO 20 MILES OF

WALKING A DAY.

THIS IS THE ONLY OPPORTUNITY FOR

THESE KIDS TO GET AN EDUCATION.

AS SOON AS WE OPENED THE

SCHOOL, FAMILIES SIGNED UP MORE

THAN 60 CHILDREN.

THEY LOVE GOING TO SCHOOL HERE.

IT DIDN'T TAKE THE TEACHERS LONG

TO REALIZE NO ONE WAS BRINGING

ANYTHING TO EAT FOR LUNCH.

FAMILIES DIDN'T HAVE FOOD TO

SEND WITH THEIR KIDS.

WE ARE GIVING THE KIDS FREE

LUNCHES AND TAKING THE FOOD TO

THE MOST NEEDY FAMILIES.

FAMILIES ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR

THE HELP OF OPERATION BLESSING.

WHILE WE WERE SERVING LUNCH TO

THE CHILDREN, THE PARENTS SANG,

IT TRANSLATES AS WE DIDN'T

EXPECT IT, A BLESSING HAS COME

TO US.

FAMILIES ARE FARMING A LARGE

PORTION OF OPERATION BLESSING'S

LAND.

THEY ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING TO

EAT.

THIS IS A DRY PART OF AFRICA,

PLANTS AND PEOPLE NEED WATER

DESPERATELY.

WE ALSO DUG A DEEP WELL.

WE HAVE ENOUGH LAND FOR JOB

TRAINING CENTERS, SCHOOL

EXPANSION OR MORE FARMING.

AS WE KEEP WORKING, OPERATION

BLESSING WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE

HOPE TO THE MASIAH IN THIS

ISOLATED PART OF KENYA.

THIS IS WHERE I WAS BORN.

IT IS LIKE A MIRACLE COMING INTO

A PLACE WHERE THERE IS NOTHING.

WE ARE PRAYING AND THANKING THE

LORD FOR WHAT OPERATION BLESSING

IS DOING IN THIS VILLAGE.

TERRY: I LOVE THE SHOT OF

ALL OF THOSE CHILDREN PUSHING

THEIR WAY INTO THE SCHOOL.

YOU KNOW WHAT IS BEING DONE IN

THIS VILLAGE IN KENYA IS

CHANGING THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY,

CHILDREN RECEIVING AN EDUCATION,

THEY ARE BEING WELL FED, PARENTS

LEARNING TO BE SELF-SUFFICIENT

AS THEY LEARN FARMING TECHNIQUES

AND FRESH WATER, YOU ARE

PROVIDING ALL OF THAT "THE 700

CLUB" MEMBERS.

YOU ARE MAKING A HUGE SDIFRNS.

DIFFERENCE.

GO TO YOUR PHONES AND CALL, SAY

YOU WANT TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WILL YOU DO IT SAYING YOU'LL DO

IT USING PLEDGE EXPRESS.

THAT IS ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING.

IT SAYS YOU HASSLE SO WE CAN PUT

MORE OF YOUR GIFT INTO THE LIVES

OF PEOPLE LIKE IN THAT TRIBE.

THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF PLACES WE

ARE WORKING AROUND THE WORLD.

WHEN YOU CALL AND SAY YOU WANT

TO USE PLEDGE EXPRESS, WE ARE

SENDING YOU "POWER FOR LIFE."

IT IS OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK

YOU FOR CARING ABOUT THE NEEDS

OF OTHERS AND BEING PART OF THE

SOLUTION, GORDAN?

GORDAN: WHEN A BABY BOY WAS

BORN IN GUATEMALA, ENTIRE

VILLAGE SAID HE WAS CURSED.

MOTHER AFRAID AND FATHER WANTED

TO LET HIM DIE BECAUSE OF AN

UNUSUAL BIRTH DEFECT.

BY TWO, A LARGE TUMOR HAD

GROWN ON FRANKLIN'S NECK.

HIS MOTHER OLIVIA WAS SHOCKED.

I NEVER THOUGHT MY BABY WOULD

BE BORN WITH SOMETHING LIKE

THIS.

I THOUGHT HE WOULD DIE BECAUSE

OF IT.

VILLAGERS THOUGHT IT WAS

CAUSED BY WITCHCRAFT.

SHE WAS SHUNNED BY OTHERS WHEN

SHE LEFT HER HOME.

THE

PEOPLE IN THE

VILLAGE

SAID

THERE WAS

A

CURSE.

OTHERS RAN AWAY WHEN THEY SAW ME

WITH THE BABY.

IT WAS HARD FOR ME.

OLIVIA TOLD HIS WIFE TO LET

THEIR SON DIE.

WHEN SHE REFUSED, HE ABANDONED

THEM.

HE

WENT

AWAY AND NEVER CAME

BACK.

ONE DAY OLIVIA LEARNED ABOUT

OPERATION BLESSING AND ASKED FOR

HELP.

A DOCTOR DIAGNOSED THE CONDITION

AND SCHEDULED FREE SURGERY FOR

FRANKLIN.

TWO DAYS LATER THEY TRAVELED

BACK TO THEIR REMOTE TOWN.

SOON FRANKLY RECOVERED

COMPLETELY.

OLIVIA KNOWS HER SON IS SAFE.

I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THE

PEOPLE AND DOCTORS THAT MADE

THIS MIRACLE HAPPEN.

GORDAN: 2009, MANY AMERICAN

BUSINESSES WERE CLOSING THEIR

TERRY?

TERRY: TAKING CARE OF A NEW

BABY CAN BE OVERWHELMING FOR ANY

PARENT.

ONE COUPLE IN CHINA WASN'T SURE

THEIR BABY WOULD LIVE TO SEE HER

FIRST BIRTHDAY.

WHEN MRS. LOU SAW THE BABY AT

THE ORPHANAGE, THERE WAS AN

INSTANT CONNECTION.

SHE SEEMED SO HOPELESS.

HER SPARKLING EYES LOOKED UP AT

ME, SHE SAID HELP ME, I WANT A

MOMMY AND DADDY, PLEASE TAKE ME

HOME.

IF MRS. LOU SAID YES, SHE

KNEW SHE AND HUSBAND WOULD FACE

MANY CHALLENGES BECAUSE THE BABY

HAD A CLEFT PALATE.

I FELT LIKE HE SAID JUST TO

TAKE HER DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

I AM GIVING HER TO YOU.

SO THE LOUS ADOPTED JAYIN.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO FEED

HER.

SHE CONSTANTLY CRIED AND CHOKED

ON THE MILK I GAVE HER.

SHE WAS SO HUNGRY.

ONLY GAINED ONE POUND IN TWO

MONTHS.

I WANTED TO CRY.

SHE NEEDED CLEFT LIP SURGERY OR

SHE WAS GOING TO DIE.

SHE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO SPEAK

FINE AND WOULD BE MARKED HER

WHOLE LIFE.

MR. LOU IS A COAL MINER AND

ONLY MAKES $230 A MONTH.

EVERYDAY THE COUPLE PRAYED FOR A

MIRACLE.

I ASKED THE LORD, PLEASE SAVE

MY BABY'S LIFE.

I KNOW HE HAD A PLAN TO HELP

HER.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW IT WOULD

HAPPEN.

THEN THE LOUS HEARD ABOUT HOW

CBN HELPS TO PROVIDE SURGERY FOR

CHILDREN LIKE THEIRS.

I KNEW THE LORD HAD HEARD OUR

PRAYERS.

I RAN HOME AND HELD MY BABY

AND SAID YOU ARE GOING TO BE

CURED.

YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A PERFECT

LIP AND BEAUTIFUL SMILE.

THEN I KNEELED DOWN AND THANKED

THE LORD.

JAYIN WAS OUT OF THE

OPERATING ROOM AND HEALED IN NO

TIME.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES

SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL FLOWER.

THANK YOU, CBN, YOU CARED ABOUT

MY BABY.

SOMETHING RADICAL, HE PRAYED TO

THE CHRISTIAN GOD FOR HELP.

HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT AND

HOW HIS PRAYER CHANGED AN ENTIRE

VILLAGE.

RAISING LIFE STOCK IN THE

HILLS OF NORTHWEST INDIA CAN BE

A VERY DIFFICULT JOB ESPECIALLY

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A CLOSE WATER

SOURCE.

SO HAUN HAD TO WALK TWO MILES

FOR HIS ANIMALS.

A LOCAL PASTOR ENCOURAGED HIM TO

PRAY TO JESUS.

IN MY HEART I WOULD PRAY TO

JESUS EVERY MORNING NOONTIME AND

EVENING FOR WATER CLOSE TO MY

HOME.

IT WASN'T LONG UNTIL HE SAW

HIS PRAYERS ANSWERED.

THIS WELL IS A BIG BLESSING

TO MY FAMILY AND VILLAGE AND A

BLESSING FOR MY CATTLE AND

GOATS.

I CAN BATHE THEM AND GIVE THEM

PLENTY OF

WATER

TO

DRINK.

I AM SO

HAPPY.

SO

HAUN

AND HIS FAMILY GAVE

THEIR LIVES TO CHRIST.

168 OTHER

VILLAGERS BAPTIZED

TANGIBLE SIGN GOD IS REAL

AND

LOVES

THEM.

I

BELIEVE THEM JESUS CHRIST

IS THE ONE TRUE GOD BECAUSE HE

GAVE ME WATER AFTER I PRAYED FOR

A WELL.

MY FAMILY DRINKS

ARE

HAPPY AND AT PEACE.

WHEN I DIE, I

KNOW I WILL BE IN
