Reporter: 61-YEAR-OLD

MIKE HAS RIDDEN AND WORKED

ON MOTORCYCLES HIS WHOLE

LIFE.

AND HE HAS EVEN BUILT BIKES,

LIKE THESE BEAUTIES, IN THE

SHOP WHERE HE NOW WORKS.

I LIKE TO PUT MY IDEAS

INTO A MOTORCYCLE THAT IS

DIFFERENT.

NONE OF THE MOTORCYCLES I

BUILD ARE THE SAME.

Reporter: MIKE MARRIED

MARY IN THE PHILIPPINES IN

2005.

THEY LIVED THERE FOR THE

YEARS.

WHEN THEY MOVED TO THE

UNITED STATES, MIKE HAD A

HARD TIME FINDING A JOB.

MIKE KNEW THAT MARY CHRIS

WATCHED "THE 700 CLUB" EVERY

DAY, BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW SHE

WAS GIVING MONEY TO THE

MINISTRY.

AND I SAID, HONEY, WHAT

ARE YOU DOING?

AND SHE SAID, WELL, I'VE

BEEN DOING THIS FOR MONTHS.

I TOLD HER WE COULDN'T

AFFORD TO SEND $20.

I WASN'T WORKING AND SHE WAS

DOING IRONING FOR A

NEIGHBOR.

Reporter: BUT THEN HE

BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT WHAT HE

WAS DOING WITH THE LITTLE

SHE MADE.

MY WIFE WAS GIVING ALL

SHE HAD.

AND SHE SHOWED ME -- I'M

SORRY (SOBBING).

SHE SHOWED ME WHAT REAL

GIVING IS, THE HEART OF

GIVING.

Reporter: MARY CHRIS

ALSO URGED MIKE TO WATCH

"THE 700 CLUB" WITH HER.

WE STARTED WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB" AND LISTENING TO

PAT AND GORDON, AND THEN WE

STARTED LEARNING ABOUT

MALACHI 3: 10.

AND I SAID, OKAY, IF I'M

GOING TO GIVE $20, THEN THE

LORD WILL GIVE IT BACK TO

US.

Reporter: SO MIKE SENT

OFF A CHECK TO CBN.

ABOUT A WEEK LATER, I

SOLD A MOTORCYCLE ENGINE I

HAD IN MY SHED FOR $2500.

I HAD IT THERE FOR YEARS.

I HAD ALMOST FORGOTTEN ABOUT

IT.

Reporter: WHEN MIKE

WENT BACK INTO THE HOUSE AND

TOLD MARY CHRIS WHAT

HAPPENED, SHE REMINDED HIM

ABOUT WHAT THEY HAD BEEN

LEARNING.

THE FIRST THING MY WIFE

SAID, YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE

$250 TO THE LORD.

AND I SAID, WHY?

AND THEN I SAID, YOU'RE

RIGHT, AND WE MAILED THE

$250 IN.

Reporter: AND SOON

AFTER THEY INCREASED THEIR

GIVING TO "700 CLUB" GOLD,

OR $40 A MONTH.

SHORTLY AFTER THAT I GOT

A JOB.

AND THEN WE HAD FRIENDS WHO

HAD A BEAUTIFUL HOME, AND

THEY ASKED US TO LIVE THERE

AND TAKE CARE OF THE HOUSE,

FREE OF RENT.

RENT-FREE FOR OVER FIVE

YEARS?

THAT WAS A BLESSING.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

THEN INCREASED TO THE

THOUSAND CLUB, AND

EVENTUALLY BECAME CBN

FOUNDERS.

OUR INCOME HAS

INCREASED.

AND EVERY TIME WE INCREASE

OUR GIVING, THE LORD FINDS

WAYS TO INCREASE OUR

EARNINGS.

I WENT FROM MAKING $20 AN

HOUR TO MAKING $42 AN HOUR.

Reporter: AND NOT ONLY

THAT, MARY CHRIS STARTED A

SMALL BUSINESS CLEANING

HOUSES.

OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS,

THE SHE HAS GONE FROM ONE

CLIENT TO SEVEN.

MIKE AND MARY CHRIS KNOW THE

ANSWER TO GOD'S PROVISION IN

THEIR LIVES IS SIMPLE.

THE SIMPLE THING IS

OBEYING GOD.

DO YOU BELIEVE GOD CAN'T

LIE?

OF COURSE HE CAN'T LIE.

THEN WHY DON'T YOU BELIEVE

THIS?

GOD SAYS TEST HIM.

PROVE HIM WRONG.

YOU CAN'T PROVE HIM WRONG.

HE IS GOING TO PROVE HIMSELF

RIGHT, JUST BY OBEYING WHAT

HE ASKS YOU TO DO.
