The 700 Club - Jan. 15, 2014

Charlie and Amy graduated college with degrees and a promise to themselves for their finances. That promise laid a foundation that reaped rewards beyond their expectations. Discover what they did and what it can do for you too. Read Transcript


[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

OVER THE HOLIDAYS, IDENTITY

THIEVES STOLE PERSONAL

INFORMATION FROM MORE THAN

100 MILLION SHOPPERS, AND

SECURITY EXPERTS SAY THAT'S

ONLY THE BEGINNING.

Terry: AMERICANS ARE

NOW FACING A NEW THREAT FROM

CYBERTHIEVES, AND THIS TIME

THEY'RE OUT TO GET YOUR TAX

REFUND.

HERE IS DALE HERD.

Reporter: YOUR IDENTITY

IN THE HANDS OF CRIMINALS.

IT IS A NIGHTMARE FOR

MILLIONS OF AMERICANS.

THE NUMBER OF TARGET

COSTUMERS WHO'S PERSONAL

INFORMATION WAS STOLEN OVER

THE HOLIDAYS IS NEARLY THREE

TIMES LARGER THAN FIRST

REPORTED.

AS MANY AS 110 MILLION

PEOPLE.

NAMES, ADDRESSES, PHONE

NUMBERS, AND E-MAIL.

IF YOUR INFORMATION HAS

BEEN BREACHED, YOU NEED TO

KNOW ABOUT IT.

THEY SAY THAT ALL OF THE

DAYS THEY WERE CONCERNED

WITH, AND OUT OF ALL OF

THOSE DAYS, I'VE BEEN HERE

SIX TIMES USING MY CARD.

Reporter: EVEN IF

YOU'VE BEEN TRACKING YOUR

CREDIT CARD SINCE THE

BREACH, YOU MAY STILL NOT BE

IN THE CLEAR.

BECAUSE IT COULD BE WEEKS OR

MONTHS BEFORE CRIMINALS USE

YOUR INFORMATION.

MANY TIMES, THERE MAY NOT

BE ANY SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY

YET, BECAUSE THE ATTACKERS

MAY SIT ON THIS INFORMATION

FOR SOME TIME.

THEY MAY SELL THAT

INFORMATION TO OTHER

PEOPLE.

Reporter: IDENTITY

THEFT IS ALREADY THE NUMBER

ONE COMPLAINT OF THE FEDERAL

TRADE COMMISSION, AND WITH

TAX SEASON RAMPING UP, THAT

IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE.

TAX-RELATED IDENTITY THEFT

IS BECOMING BIG BUSINESS FOR

CYBERCRIMINALS.

IF THE HACKER IS SUCCESSFUL,

YOUR TAX RETURN WILL BE

KICKED OUT OF THE SYSTEM AND

THE REFUND WILL BE DENIED.

BECAUSE THE I.R.S. COMPUTERS

WILL SHOW THAT SOMEONE WAS

ALREADY PAID.

EXPERTS SAY IF YOU FILE BY

MAIL, DO IT AT A POST

OFFICE, NOT FROM AN UNLOCKED

MAILBOX IN FRONT OF YOUR

HOME.

IF YOU FILE ELECTRONICALLY,

USE A SECURED COMPUTER ON A

SECURE NETWORK.

IF YOUR MONEY IS HACKED, YOU

COULD GET YOUR MONEY

EVENTUALLY, BUT IT COULD BE

DELAYED FOR UP TO SIX

MONTHS.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: WE'RE ALL

STARTING TO TRACK OUR CREDIT

CARD ACCOUNTS AND EXAMINE

EVERY CHARGE ON THERE TO

MAKE SURE WE'RE NOT ONE OF

THE VICTIMS.

BUT THERE IS OBVIOUSLY MORE

OUT THERE, AND THE THIEVES

SEEM TO BE VERY INVENTIVE.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE

INFORMATION ON HOW TO

PROTECT YOURSELF FROM

IDENTITY THEFT BY GOING TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

A NEW REPORT TODAY SHOWS HOW

THE GOVERNMENT IS SPYING ON

OTHER COUNTRIES.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

JOHN?

Reporter: GORDON,

THAT'S RIGHT.

THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY

HAS BUGGED ABOUT 100,000

COMPUTERS AROUND THE WORLD,

BUT NONE HERE IN THE U.S.

CITING N.S.A. DOCUMENTS, THE

"NEW YORK TIMES" SAYS THE

AGENCY SOFTWARE MONITORS THE

COMPUTERS AND SENDS

INFORMATION BACK BY

RADIOWAVES, AND IT CAN BE

USED TO CREATE SO-CALLED

DIGITAL HIGHWAYS TO LAUNCH

CYBERATTACKS.

IT HAS ALSO BEEN USED TO SPY

ON U.S. ALLIES IN THE WAR ON

TERROR, SUCH AS SAUDI

ARABIA, PAKISTAN, AND

INDIA.

> A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS

STRUCK DOWN OKLAHOMA'S BAN

ON SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, RULING

IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

THE COUPLE SUED FOR THE

RIGHT TO MARRY AND TO HAVE A

MARRIAGE FROM ANOTHER

JURISDICTION RECOGNIZED IN

OKLAHOMA.

THE JUDGE SAID THE STATE'S

VOTER-APPROVED BAN VIOLATES

THE EQUAL PROTECTION CLAUSE

IN THE CONSTITUTION.

THIS COMES LESS THAN A MONTH

AFTER A FEDERAL JUDGE IN

UTAH REACHED THE SAME

CONCLUSION.

MORE THAN 30 STATES HAVE

PASSED AMENDMENTS OR LAWS

LIMITING MARRIAGE TO A MAN

AND WOMAN.

THE GOVERNOR OF OKLAHOMA

CRITICIZED THE RULING,

SAYING IT UNDERMINED THE

STATES' VOTERS WHO PASSED

THE BAN BY A 3-1 MARGIN.

> THE WATER SUPPLY IS

RETURNING BACK TO NORMAL

AFTER A CHEMICAL SPILL

TAINTED THE WATER.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

WORKING WITH A LOCAL UNION

MISSION, PROVIDING BOTTLED

WATER, SHOWER TRAILERS,

DIAPERS, AND OTHER RELIEF

SUPPLIES.

THIS IS WONDERFUL.

THIS IS NOTHING BUT A

BLESSING.

THEY REALLY TREAT ME

WONDERFUL.

THEY HAVE GIVEN MY PAPER

TOWELS AND PLATES AND WATER

AND ANY KIND OF ASSISTANCE I

NEED.

I HAD TO EVACUATE MY

CHILDREN BECAUSE MY OLDER

SON HAS ASTHMA.

IF WE DIDN'T HAVE THIS, IT

WOULD BE HORRIBLE.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

DISTRIBUTING OVER 76,000

BOTTLES OF WATER TODAY.

AND "OPERATION BLESSING"

COULDN'T DO THAT WORK

WITHOUT THE FAITHFUL SUPPORT

OF OUR PARTNERS.

Gordon: THAT'S RIGHT,

JOHN.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," THE PEOPLE OF

WEST VIRGINIA THANK YOU

TODAY.

BECAUSE WITHOUT YOU, THEY

WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO HAVE

DRINKING WATER.

WONDERFUL NEWS.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER

THIS.

CAN.

THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE --

I HAVE HAD A DREAM.

THROUGHOUT TIME --

IN MY SLEEP, THE CAUSE OF

GOD APPEARED.

AND EVEN TODAY.

IT HAPPENED A COUPLE OF

WEEKS AGO.

GOD SPEAKS TO US THROUGH

DREAMS.

Gordon: WHAT DO YOUR

DREAMS MEAN?

IS GOD TRYING TO TELL YOU

SOMETHING?

FIND OUT WHAT TO DO WHEN

GOD SPEAKS TO YOU IN

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT."

Gordon: STUDIES SHOW

THAT AMERICANS NOW OWE MORE

MONEY ON STUDENT LOANS THAN

ON THEIR CARS OR THEIR

CREDIT CARDS.

THAT WAS THE CASE FOR

CHARLIE AND AMY UNTIL

CHARLIE FOUND A WAY TO

TRIPLE HIS INCOME AND PAY

OFF THEIR DEBT.

Reporter: CHARLIE AND

AMY SCOTT LOVE SPENDING TIME

AT THEIR HOME IN TEXAS WITH

THEIR

THREE YOUNG KIDS.

BEFORE THEY TOOK ON RAISING

A FAMILY, THEY WERE A YOUNG

COUPLE, FRESH OUT OF

COLLEGE, TRYING TO GET

AHEAD.

THAT WAS TOUGH TO DO

CONSIDERING THEY OWED TENS

OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN

STUDENT LOANS.

EVERY DAY YOU'RE WAKING

UP CARRYING THESE HUGE

BURDENS.

Reporter: AT THE TIME,

CHARLIE WAS A MANAGER AT A

PLANT, AND AMY TAUGHT

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

CHARLIE WANTED TO USE HIS

ENGINEERING DEGREE, BUT

HADN'T FOUND ANYTHING.

NOT ONLY ARE WE

CHALLENGED WITH TRYING TO

GET OUT OF DEBT, BUT WITH

ME, AS A HUSBAND AND

PROVIDER, TRYING TO FIND MY

VOCATION.

NO MATTER WHAT IS GOING

ON IN OUR LIVES, THIS

BELONGS TO GOD.

NO MATTER HOW BIG OUR

DEBT, WE'RE GOING TO MAKE

TITHING ONE OF THE CORNER

STONES OF OUR MARRIAGE.

Reporter: SO THEY GAVE

TO THEIR CHURCH AND ALSO

CBN.

THOUGH SOME WONDERED IS THAT

THE BEST WAY TO GET OUT OF

DEBT?

HOW CAN YOU GET RID OF

DEBT WHILE AT THE SAME TIME

GIVING MONEY, AND IT DOESN'T

MAKE SENSE.

WE JUST HAD A PEACE, THAT

THIS IS WHAT WE'RE SUPPOSED

TO DO.

IF YOU STICK WITH IT AND

YOU'RE FAITHFUL AND YOU

TRUST GOD, GOD ALWAYS COMES

THROUGH.

Reporter: AFTER TWO

YEARS, CHARLIE SAYS GOD

OPENED UP AN OPPORTUNITY FOR

HIM IN THE OIL AND GAS

INDUSTRY AS AN ENGINEER.

IT WAS A PERFECT FIT.

I KNEW IT WAS GOD BECAUSE

IT IS SOMETHING I COULDN'T

DREAM UP.

WE DIDN'T RAISE OUR STANDARD

OF LIVING, BUT WE USED THIS

SURPLUS, MONTH AFTER MONTH,

AND APPLIED IT TO OUR DEBT.

Reporter: THE SCOTTS

WERE ABLE TO PAY OFF THEIR

STUDENT LOANS SOONER THAN

THEY THOUGHT POSSIBLE.

WHEN WE PAID THAT LAST

CHECK, IT WAS A BREATH OF

FRESH AIR.

WE FELT TOTALLY FREE.

Reporter: NOW CHARLIE

AND AMY HAD THE MONEY TO BUY

THEIR DREAM HOME.

CHARLIE IS DOING SO WELL

WITH HIS CAREER, THAT AMY

QUIT HER TEACHING JOB TO

SPEND MORE TIME WITH THEIR

KIDS.

TRUST GOD.

TRY IT, AND SEE WHAT

HAPPENS.

WITH OBEDIENCE COMES

BLESSING.

WHEN YOU TRUST GOD AND YOU

TAKE A STEP OUT AND YOU

APPLY THAT FAITH, THAT'S

LIVING FAITH.

THAT JUST SHOWS THE POWER OF

GOD IN OUR LIFE.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE FROM PSALM 37: "TAKE

DELIGHT IN THE LORD, AND HE

WILL GIVE YOU YOUR HEART'S

DESIRE.

COMMIT EVERYTHING YOU DO TO

THE LORD, TRUST HIM, AND HE

WILL HELP YOU."

AND CHARLIE AND AMY DID

THAT.

THEY DIDN'T VIEW THESE AS,

YOU KNOW, RULES THAT YOU'RE

FORCED TO DO.

THEY TOOK DELIGHT IN DOING

IT.

AND THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE.

AND THAT'S WHAT MADE THE

DIFFERENCE FOR THEM.

AND IT CAN MAKE THE

DIFFERENCE FOR YOU.

WELL, A FEW YEARS AGO, MIKE

WAS OUT OF WORK AND RUNNING

LOW ON CASH.

SO HE WAS SURPRISED TO LEARN

WHAT HIS WIFE WAS DOING WITH

THE FEW DOLLARS THEY HAD

LEFT.

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 CHRIS IN THE

PHILIPPINES IN 2005.

THEY LIVED THERE FOR A

YEAR.

WHEN THEY RETURNED TO THE

STATES, MIKE HAD A HARD TIME

FINDING A JOB.

THAT'S WHEN HE STARTED TO

LEARN ABOUT A PRINCIPLE THAT

CHANGED EVERYTHING.

MIKE NEW THAT MARY CHRIS

WATCHED "THE 700 CLUB" EVERY

DAY, BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW SHE

WAS GIVING MONEY TO THE

MINISTRY.

I SAID, HONEY, WHAT ARE

YOU DOING?

AND SHE SAID, WELL, I'VE

BEEN DOING THIS FOR A COUPLE

OF MONTHS.

I TOLD HER AT FIRST THAT WE

COULDN'T AFFORD TO SEND

$20.

I WASN'T WORKING.

AND SHE WAS DOING IRONING

AND THINGS FOR A NEIGHBOR.

Reporter: BUT THEN MIKE

BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT WHAT HE

SAW HIS WIFE DOING WITH THE

LITTLE BIT SHE WAS MAKING.

MY WIFE WAS GIVING ALL

SHE WILL.

AND SHE SHOWED ME -- I'M

SORRY.

I'M SORRY.

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.

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 IS YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE

$250 TO THE LORD.

AND I SAID, WHY?

AND THEN I SAID, I'M SORRY,

YOU'RE RIGHT.

WE HAVE TO GIVE $250 TO THE

LORD.

SO WE MAILED IT INTO CBN.

Reporter: SOON AFTER

THAT THEY WERE WATCHING A

CBN TELETHON, AND THEY

INCREASED THEIR PLEDGE.

SHORTLY AFTER THAT I GOT

A JOB.

AND WE HAVE FRIENDS WHO HAVE

A BEAUTIFUL HOME, AND THEY

ASKED US TO LIVE THERE, TAKE

CARE OF THE HOUSE, FREE OF

RENT.

RENT-FREE FOR OVER FIVE

YEARS?

THAT WAS A BLESSING.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

TEN INCREASED TO THE

THOUSAND CLUB, AND

EVENTUALLY BECAME CBN

FOUNDERS.

OUR INCOME HAS INCREASED,

AND IT'S REAL FUNNY BECAUSE

EVERY TIME WE INCREASE OUR

GIVING, THE LORD FINDS WAY

TO INCREASE OUR EARNINGS.

IT'S REALLY STRANGE.

I WENT FROM MAKING $20 AN

HOUR TO MAKING $42 AN HOUR.

Reporter: NOT ONLY

THAT, MARY CHRIS STARTED A

SMALL BUSINESS CLEANING

HOUSES.

OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS, 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 SECRET IS OBEYING

HIM.

THAT'S THE SECRET.

YOU ASK ANY CHRISTIAN, DO

YOU BELIEVE THE BIBLE?

OF COURSE.

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.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE FROM PROVERBS: "KEEP

MY COMMANDS IN YOUR HEART,

FOR THEY WILL PROLONG YOUR

LIFE MANY YEARS AND BRING

YOU PROSPERITY.

LET LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS

NEVER LEAVE YOU.

THEN YOU WILL WIN FAVOR AND

A GOOD NAME IN THE SIGHT OF

GOD AND MAN."

MIKE LEARNED THAT, AND HE

KEPT BEING REMINDED OF IT.

IF YOU KEEP GOD'S COMMANDS

IN YOUR HEART AND YOU DO

THEM, THAT'S WHEN THE

BLESSINGS COME.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS.

SOME CBN PARTNERS JUST LIKE

MIKE SAY WE LOVE GIVING, AND

WE WANT TO CHALLENGE OTHERS

TO GIVE.

SO FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES,

THEY'LL MATCH YOUR GIFT,

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR,

$125,000.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS.

AND, LORD, WE ASK FOR

BLESSING FOR THE PARTNERS

WHO GIVE.

WE KNOW THAT YOUR WORD OVER

THEM WILL BE TRUE AND IS

TRUE IN THEIR LIVES.

YOU WILL OPEN THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR OUT

BLESSINGS THEY CANNOT

CONTAIN.

BE WITH US NOW, ENCOURAGE US

NOW, FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Gordon: YOU HEARD IT,

$125,000 ON THE CHALLENGE.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

JUST $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY.

SOME OF YOU CAN JOIN AT A

HIGHER LEVEL.

WE'VE GOT "THE 700 CLUB"

GOLD, WHICH IS $40 A MONTH.

AND THEN THE THOUSAND CLUB,

WHICH IS $1,000 A YEAR, AND

THAT BREAKS OUT TO $84 A

MONTH.

AT WHATEVER LEVEL GOD IS

SPEAKING TO YOU TO GIVE, NOW

IS THE TIME TO CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: TONIGHT, WHEN

YOU GO TO SLEEP, YOU'LL HAVE

AN AVERAGE OF FOUR DREAMS.

SO WHY DO WE DREAM AT

NIGHT?

IS IT STRESS, OR MAYBE THAT

LATE-NIGHT SNACK YOU HAD?

OR PERHAPS GOD IS TRYING TO

TELL YOU SOMETHING.

FIND OUT IN OUR NEW D.V.D.,

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT."

Gordon: THE BIBLE SAYS

THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE

VISIONS OF THE NIGHT.

THE QUESTION FOR US TODAY

IS: DOES GOD STILL SPEAK IN

OUR DREAMS?

CAN GOD USE OUR DREAMS TO

WARN US, INSTRUCT US,

INSPIRE US, CALL US TO PRAY

AND BUILD OUR FAITH?

Announcer: IN GORDON

ROBERTSON'S NEW NEWEST

GOD USES DREAMS.

GORDON?

Gordon: AS A FREELANCE

PHOTOGRAPHER, JOHN JACKSON

WAS DROWNING IN DEBT.

HE EVEN HAD TO SELL HIS CAR

JUST TO PAY HIS BILLS.

THEN ONE DAY JOHN MADE A

DECISION THAT MORE THAN

DOUBLED HIS INCOME.

Reporter: JOHN JACKSON

WORKS IN A PAINT STORE.

BUT ON THE WEEKENDS, HE

LOVES WORKING AS A FREELANCE

PHOTOGRAPHER.

HE IS ALSO A PARTNER WITH

CBN.

THEY SHOW WHAT THEY'RE

DOING EVERY DAY, EVERY

WEEK.

WHETHER IT'S ORPHANAGES,

WHETHER IT IS AROUND THE

WORLD OR HERE IN MY

NEIGHBORHOOD.

THEY SHOW WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

AND, TO ME, BASED ON WHAT

I'VE LEARNED THROUGH

SCRIPTURE, THAT'S GOOD

GROUND.

IF THAT'S GOOD GROUND, THEN

YOU'LL GET A HARVEST.

Reporter: IN 1995, JOHN

STARTED GIVING $20 A MONTH.

HE SAYS THAT SOON AFTER

THAT, GOD PROMPTED HIM TO

GIVE $84 A MONTH.

BUT JOHN RESISTED.

I KIND OF PUSHED IT

ASIDE.

I'M, LIKE, I CAN'T AFFORD

THAT.

Reporter: AT THE TIME,

JOHN WAS STRUGGLING WITH HIS

FINANCES AND RIDING A BIKE

TO WORK.

HE HAD A FULL-TIME JOB AT A

LOCAL PAINT STORE, BUT HIS

CAR NEEDED EXPENSIVE

REPAIRS, AND HE HAD TO SELL

IT AT A LOSS JUST TO MAKE

ENDS MEET.

ONE DAY I WAS RIDING, AND

I WAS, LIKE, LORD, I'M TIRED

OF THIS.

WHAT'S 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.

Reporter: FINALLY JOHN

INCREASED HIS CBN PLEDGE TO

$84 A MONTH.

WHEN I MADE UP MY MIND TO

DO IT, THAT'S WHEN THE

PROMOTIONS STARTED COMING.

NOW I JUST RECENTLY GOT

PROMOTED TO STORE MANAGER.

THAT WELL-OVER DOUBLED MY

PAY.

Reporter: AND JOHN SAW

GOD AT WORK IN OTHER WAYS.

FOR ONE THING, HIS

PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS TOOK

OFF.

I'M GETTING MORE HITS ON

MY WEBSITE.

IT HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED.

IT HAS MORE THAN TRIPLED.

AND I FOUND A CAR, IN

EXCELLENT CONDITION, FOR

$2200.

THE BLUE BOOK SAYS IT IS

WORTH $3800.

IT IS GOD.

I'M JUST FOLLOWING HIS

PRINCIPLES.

Reporter: JOHN SAYS

THAT HE LEARNED THOSE

PRINCIPLES IN PART FROM

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I HEAR CBN TALK ABOUT IT

ALL OF THE TIME.

THEY USE THE SCRIPTURE.

YOU SOW SPARINGLY, YOU REAP

SPARINGLY.

AND YOU SO ABUNDANTLY, AND

YOU REAP ABUNDANTLY.

I HAVE SEEN THAT IN MY OWN

LIVES.

Reporter: JOHN BELIEVES

THAT OBEDIENCE IS KEY.

YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO

TITHE.

YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO SOW

INTO A MINISTRY LIKE CBN.

JUST BE OBEDIENT TO GOD.

LISTEN TO WHAT HE IS TELLING

YOU.

BE A PARTNER WITH CBN.

YOU'LL BE BLESSED.

Gordon: JOHN WALKED

INTO THIS PROMISE, MATTHEW

25: "TO THOSE WHO USE WELL

WHAT THEY ARE GIVEN, EVEN

MORE WILL BE GIVEN AND THEY

WILL HAVE AN ABUNDANCE.

BUT FROM THOSE WHO DO

NOTHING, EVEN WHAT LITTLE

THEY HAVE WILL BE TAKEN

AWAY."

LET TODAY BE THE DAY WHERE

YOU DECIDE YOU'RE GOING TO

DO SOMETHING, YOU'RE GOING

TO USE WELL.

YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE INTO

THE KINGDOM.

YOU'RE GOING TO STORE UP

TREASURE IN HEAVEN.

EMPERORS, PHARAOHS, AND

Wendy: I'M ALWAYS

AMAZED AT THE WAY GOD SPEAKS

TO US IN DREAMS.

ABOUT SIX MONTHS AGO, I WAS

THINKING ABOUT SELLING MY

HOME.

AND I HAD A DREAM THAT THAT

WOULD NOT BE A GOOD TIME TO

DO IT AND I WOULD END UP

VERY SORRY IF I SOLD AT THAT

TIME.

OF COURSE, I DID NOT PUT MY

HOUSE ON THE MARKET.

PLEASE GO TO YOUR PHONES

RIGHT NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: IF YOU'RE A CBN

PARTNER, YOU HAVE THE

OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE THE

LIVES OF PEOPLE YOU HAVE

NEVER EVEN MET.

FOR YEARS A CHINESE PASTOR

PRAYED FOR A WAY TO GET HIS

CHILD THE SURGERY SHE

NEEDED, AND THANKS TO PEOPLE

LIKE YOU, THAT PRAYER WAS

ANSWERED.

EVERY NIGHT MR. AND

MRS. YANG WENT INTO THEIR

DAUGHTER'S ROOM TO PRAY FOR

HER.

THEY ALWAYS THANKED GOD FOR

HER GENTLE SPIRIT AND ASKED

FOR HIM TO PLEASE MAKE A WAY

FOR HER TO WALK NORMALLY.

JAMU HAD A DISLOCATED HIP.

SHE HAD A PROBLEM WHEN

SHE WAS JUST TWO.

SHE COULD NOT WALK RIGHT.

I FIGURED SHE WAS YOUNG AND

IT WOULD EVENTUALLY BE

FINE.

BUT THEN THE DOCTOR DID AN

X-RAY AND SAID MY JAMU

NEEDED A SURGERY.

Terry: MR. YANG IS A

PASTOR AND THE COUPLE IS

POOR, SO THEY HAD NO WAY TO

PAY FOR SURGERY.

THE DOCTORS TOLD US IT

WOULD COST ALMOST $5,000.

AND WE ONLY HAD $1,500.

Terry: THE YANGS KNEW

THAT WITHOUT HIP SURGERY,

JAMU WOULD HAVE A ROUGH LIFE

AHEAD.

IF SHE DID NOT GET HELP,

SHE WOULD LIMP HER ENTIRE

LIFE.

IF SHE ALWAYS LIMPED,

PEOPLE WOULD LAUGH AT HER.

NO MATTER HOW WONDERFUL A

PERSON SHE IS, OR HOW HAPPY

OR BRAVE, PEOPLE WOULD STILL

REJECT HER.

AND IT WOULD BE HARD FOR HER

TO GET MARRIED OR FIND A

JOB.

Terry: EVEN AT HER

YOUNG AGE, JAMU SEEMED TO

UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH SHE

NEEDED HELP.

WHENEVER I BOUGHT

ANYTHING, EVEN GROCERIES,

JAMU ASKED ME TO PLEASE SAVE

THE MONEY FOR SURGERY

INSTEAD.

I TOLD HER THAT WE BELIEVE

THE LORD WOULD MAKE A WAY

FOR HER.

Terry: THEN A FRIEND

TOLD MR. YANG ABOUT CBN, AND

WE OFFERED TO HELP PAY FOR

JAMU'S HIP SURGERY AND

FOLLOWUP TREATMENTS.

I IMMEDIATELY SAID,

PRAISE THE LORD.

Terry: THE SURGERY WAS

A SUCCESS.

TODAY JAMU CAN WALK AND RUN

BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE.

THE YANGS SAY CBN PARTNERS

WERE THE ANSWER TO ALL OF

THEIR PRAYERS.

EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE FAR

AWAY, OUR HEARTS ARE KNIT

TOGETHER.

YOU DID NOT HESITATE WHEN

THE LORD TOUCHED YOUR HEART

TO HELP THE POOR.

I THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP.

NOW MY DAUGHTER IS HEALTHY

AND I PRAY FOR YOU EVERY

DAY.

MAY THE LORD BLESS AND

REWARD YOU.

Terry: CAN YOU IMAGINE

BEING A PARENT, LOVING YOUR

CHILD DEARLY, KNOWING THEY

HAVE A SITUATION THAT NEEDS

TO BE CORRECTED, THAT CAN BE

CORRECTED, BUT YOU SIMPLY

CAN'T AFFORD IT.

YOU STEPPED RIGHT INTO THE

MIDDLE OF JAMU'S PARENTS'

SITUATION OF HER LIFE AND

YOU CHANGED IT.

YOU CHANGED IT.

THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS

THAT "700 CLUB" MEMBERS ARE

GORDON?

Gordon: LIKE MANY

PEOPLE IN THE MILITARY

TODAY, JAMIE JACKSON HAD A

HARD TIME FINDING A JOB WHEN

SHE CAME BACK HOME FROM

DEPLOYMENT.

AS A SINGLE MOM, JAMIE

DIDN'T EVEN HAVE THE MONEY

TO BUY BEDS FOR HER

CHILDREN.

AFTER YEARS OF SERVING HER

COUNTRY, SHE HAD NOWHERE TO

TURN.

SO WE DECIDED TO GIVE HER

FAMILY SOME MUCH-NEEDED

HELP.

Reporter: JAMIE JACKSON

IS A BUSY LADY.

SHE IS A SINGLE MOM RAISING

FIVE ACTIVE BOYS.

JAMIE WAS CALLED UP BY THE

AIR FORCE RESERVE AND SERVED

HER COUNTRY AS AN ACTIVE

DUTY AIRMAN FOR SEVEN

YEARS.

SHE NOW WORKS FULL-TIME AND

REMAINS IN THE AIR FORCE

RESERVES.

JUST BEING A SINGLE MOM

IN GENERAL, OF FIVE BOYS, IS

A LOT.

Reporter: EVEN WITH HER

SALARY AND RESERVE PAY

COMBINED, JAMIE SAYS

PROVIDING FOR HER FAMILY IS

TOUGH.

IN FACT, TWO OF HER BOYS

SLEEP ON ONE LOVE SEAT, AND

ONE SLEEPS ON A

TODDLER-SIZED MATTRESS.

ON TOP OF THAT, JAMIE'S

DISHWASHER BROKE AND HER VAN

NEEDED NEW BRAKES.

ALSO, SHE OWED $4500 IN BACK

PAYMENTS ON HER MORTGAGE.

SHE TOLD HER PASTOR SHE GOT

BEHIND WHEN SHE RETURNED

FROM ACTIVE DUTY AND

DISCOVERED HER FORMER

EMPLOYER DIDN'T HOLD HER JOB

BEYOND THE REQUIRED FIVE

YEARS.

SOMETIMES IT IS A

FINANCIAL STRUGGLE, BEING A

MOM OF FIVE BOYS.

Reporter: JAMIE'S

CHURCH, CAVALRY CHAPEL, WAS

THE IDEAL PARTNER WHEN CBN

WAS IDENTIFYING MILITARY

FAMILIES IN NEED.

CBN COMING ALONG CAVALRY

CHAPEL, AND HELPING OUR

LOCAL MEMBERS RIGHT HERE IN

THIS COMMUNITY, IS JUST

AMAZING TO US.

Reporter: A TEAM OF

VOLUNTEERS ARRIVED AND

HELPED JAMIE WITH SIMPLE

HOME REPAIRS AND BOUGHT HER

A NEW DISHWASHER.

AND THEN CAVALRY AND CBN

TOOK JAMIE TO A LOCAL

FURNITURE STORE AND BOUGHT

BEDS AND MATTRESSES FOR THE

THREE BOYS WHO DID NOT HAVE

BEDS.

I HAD NO IDEA THERE WERE

PEOPLE OUT THERE WILLING TO

OPEN UP THEIR HEARTS.

Reporter: PASTOR REGGIE

ALSO TOLD JAMIE THAT CAVALRY

CHAPEL AND CBN WERE PRAYING

TO FIX HER BRAKES.

AND THERE WAS ONE MORE

SURPRISE.

THANKS TO CHRISTIAN

BROADCAST NETWORK, WE'RE

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR

$3500 BILL THAT IS DUE.

AND NOW YOU CAN BE FULLY

CAUGHT UP FOR SERVING YOUR

COUNTRY FAITHFULLY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY

(SOBBING).

THANK YOU.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

I AM VERY GRATEFUL THAT

THEY WOULD JUST OPEN UP

THEIR HEARTS TO HELP ME AND

OTHER MILITARY FAMILIES IN

THE FUTURE.

IT REALLY IS AWESOME.

Gordon: YOU CAN BE A

PART OF THAT.

YOU CAN BE A PART OF HELPING

PEOPLE.

NOT A HANDOUT, BUT A

HAND-UP.

AND AN HONOR FOR THE SERVICE

THAT THEY HAVE DONE.

WE'VE GOT TO RECOGNIZE THIS

IS THE LONGEST WAR IN

AMERICAN HISTORY.

AND WE HAVE FAMILIES THAT

HAVE BEEN DIVIDED FOR

YEARS.

AND THOSE FAMILIES AT HOME,

THEY'RE SERVING, TOO.

THOSE FIVE KIDS, THEY WERE

SERVING WITH MOM BECAUSE MOM

WASN'T PART OF THEIR LIFE

DURING HER DEPLOYMENT.

WE NEED TO REACH OUT WITH

HANDS OF LOVE AND COMPASSION

AND SAY, WE'RE HERE FOR

YOU.

WE WANT TO HONOR YOUR

SERVICE.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

IT, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A PART OF EVERYTHING CBN IS

DOING.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

$125,000 CHALLENGE.

THAT MEANS YOUR GIFT IS

AUTOMATICALLY DOUBLED FOR

THE NEXT 13 MINUTES AND 31

SECONDS.

SO GO TO THE PHONE AND CALL

US.

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO OVER TO WENDY AT

THE PHONES.

WENDY?

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

I LOVE THE SCRIPTURE FROM

THE BOOK OF AMOS.

IT SAYS, "GOD DOES NOTHING

WITHOUT REVEALING HIS PLANS,

HIS SECRETS, TO HIS

SERVANTS."

AND THROUGHOUT HISTORY, GOD

HAS USED DREAMS TO DO JUST

THAT.

TAKE A LOOK.

Gordon: YOU CAN DREAM

OF THE GOOD WORKS GOD HAS

CREATED FOR YOU.

AND FIND THE SATISFACTION IN

LIFE THAT ONLY HE CAN

PROVIDE.

Announcer: "VISIONS OF

THE NIGHT," AVAILABLE NOW.

Wendy: IF YOU WOULD

LIKE TO BETTER UNDERSTAND

HOW GOD USED DREAMS

THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, OR

JUST BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT

GOD IS SAYING TO YOU IN YOUR

OWN DREAMS, WE HAVE THE

PERFECT GIFT FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

IT IS CALLED "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT."

THIS IS GORDON'S FANTASTIC

NEW TEACHING.

WHAT DO YOUR DREAMS MEAN?

SOME ARE VERY CLEAR, AND

SOME NEED SOME

INTERPRETATION.

THIS WILL REALLY HELP YOU

OUT.

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU HELP US OUT.

GO TO YOUR PHONES,

1-800-759-0700, OR YOU CAN

LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A "700

CLUB" PARTNER, $20 A MONTH,

65 CENTS A DAY, THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

WE LOVE THAT YOU'RE WITH

US.

I WANT TO CHALLENGE YOU TO

GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

$40 A MONTH.

THAT'S A "700 CLUB" GOLD

LEVEL.

WHY NOT TAKE IT UP.

IT IS A NEW YEAR.

YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE GOD.

AND YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE US.

IF YOU GIVE AT THE $40 A

MONTH LEVEL, WE'RE GOING TO

BLESS YOU WITH THREE OF

GORDON'S NEW TEACHING,

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT."

IF YOU CAN DO $84 R84 A

MONTH, OUR THOUSAND CLUB

LEVEL, WE'RE GOING TO GIFT

YOU WITH FIVE "VISIONS OF

THE NIGHT."

GORDON?

Gordon: CORY STARTED

COLLEGE WITH A PART-TIME CAR

THAT WAS OLDER THAN HE WAS.

WHEN IT DIED, HE DIDN'T HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY A NEW

ONE.

BUT CORY FOUND A WAY TO GET

THE CAR HE WANTED AT HALF

THE PRICE.

Reporter: 18-YEAR-OLD

CORY CARTER IS LEARNING A

LOT OF THINGS HIS FIRST YEAR

OF COLLEGE.

BUT WHAT HE IS LEARNING

ABOUT MANAGING HIS MONEY

CAME FROM WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

I WOULD WATCH IT EVERY

MORNING.

GORDON WAS TALKING ABOUT

TITHING, AND GOD GIVES IT

BACK TO YOU WHEN YOU TITHE.

ONE DAY I FELT LIKE GOD WAS

MOVING ME TO JOIN.

Reporter: CORY WASN'T

SURE ABOUT MAKING THE

COMMITMENT TO TITHE,

ESPECIALLY SINCE HIS HOURS

WERE CUT AT THE GROCERY

STORE WHERE HE WORKS.

HE BECAME A "700 CLUB"

PARTNER ANYWAY.

I GAVE MY FIRST CHECK AND

I WALK IN AND LOOK AT MY(B(B

SCHEDULE, AND I'M, LIKE,

H'MMM, THAT'S A LITTLE

STRANGE, I'M BACK UP TO 27

HOURS.

Reporter: AND CORY ALSOú

NEEDED A NEW CAR BECAUSE HIS

OLD ONE WAS READY FOR THE

JUNK PILE.

IT LOOKED HIDEOUS.

I WANTED A FORD RANGER.

AND THEY WERE ALL, LIKE,

$8,000, $7,000.

CORY ENLISTED HIS UNCLE TO

HELP HIM.

I GOT THAT PHONE CALL ONE

DAY AND HE SAID I HAVE THE

FORD RANGER.

AND I SAID, I'M TAKE IT.

AND IT MUST BE $6,000, AND

SHE WAS, LIKE, I JUST TALKED

THEM DOWN TO THREE GRAND.

TITHING, YOU GET REWARDS FOR

IT AND YOU GET BLESSINGS FOR

IT.

AND IT IS NOT JUST STRAIGHT

CASH.

I THINK HE DOES IT IN OTHER

WAYS.

I THINK I ONLY GOT THAT

VEHICLE BECAUSE I STARTED

TITHING AND TOOK THAT RISK.

Reporter: AND CORY SAYS

HE ESPECIALLY LOVES GIVING

TO CBN.

IF YOU WANT SOMEONE TO

REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE, IF

YOU WANT YOUR MONEY REALLY

TO GO SOMEWHERE, YOU SHOULD

GIVE TO CBN.

THEY SHOW YOU WHERE IT

GOES.

YOU KNOW, THEY HAVE

"ORPHANS' PROMISE," AND THEY

GO INTO ANY COUNTRY THAT

NEEDS HELP.

THEY ROLL THE TRUCKS IN.

THEY DON'T CARE WHAT IT

TAKES.

AND THEY HELP PEOPLE.

Reporter: CORY STILL

TITHES FAITHFULLY, AND HE IS

CONFIDENT THAT GOD WILL

CONTINUE TO PROVIDE.

WHEN I TALK TO PEOPLE

ABOUT IT, I ALWAYS TELL THEM

THAT, YOU KNOW, IT IS GOING

TO BE GIVEN BACK TO YOU.

YOU SHOULDN'T TITHE JUST TO

GET STUFF BACK.

YOU SHOULD JOYFULLY GIVE,

BUT DON'T THINK YOU'RE

THROWING YOUR MONEY OUT THE

WINDOW BECAUSE YOU WILL BE

BLESSED FOR IT.

HE KEEPS HIS PROMISES.

HE HAS DONE IT FOR ME.

HE CAN DO IT FOR ANYBODY.

Gordon: HE KEEPS IT

PROMISES.

AND HE'LL KEEP HIS PROMISE

TO YOU.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS.

SOME CBN PARTNERS JUST LIKE

CORY SAY, WE LOVE GIVING TO

CBN.

WE LOVE TO WATCH THE STORIES

OF OUR GIFTS IN ACTIONS.

SO WE WANT TO CHALLENGE

OTHERS TO GIVE.

SO THEY'RE GOING TO INCREASE

THIS CHALLENGE.

NOT BY A LITTLE BIT.

BY $150,000.

WE'RE TAKING IT TO

$275,000.

AND WE'VE GOT UNTIL THE END

OF THE HOUR.

LORD, WE ASK FOUR YOUR

BLESSING OVER THIS.

AND WE ASK FOR A

MULTIPLICATION.

WE ASK FOR BLESSING FOR THE

PARTNERS WHO MADE IT

POSSIBLE, AND BLESSING FOR

THOSE WHO RESPOND.

BE WITH THEM, ENCOURAGE

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, $275,000 ON A

CHALLENGE.

THAT MEANS YOUR GIFTS ARE

MATCHED.

YOU'RE DOUBLED FOR THE NEXT

22 MINUTES AND 29 SECONDS.

GIVE US A CALL.

$275,000.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO

CALL US NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: IN THE

PHILIPPINES, A YOUNG GIRL

NAMED SANDY WAS BORN WITH A

HOLE IN HER HEART.

HER PARENTS COULD AFFORD THE

SURGERY THAT WOULD SAVE HER

LIFE UNTIL THEY MET A TEEN

FROM CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

Reporter: BECAUSE OF A

SERIOUS MEDICAL CONDITION,

7-YEAR-OLD SANDY CANNOT GO

TO SCHOOL LIKE HER BROTHER.

INSTEAD, SHE HAS TO STAY

WITH HER MOM WHILE SHE GOES

TO WORK.

I STOPPED GOING TO SCHOOL

BECAUSE I HAVE A BAD HEART.

Reporter: SANDY WAS

BORN WITH A HOLE IN HER

HEART.

THAT HAS MADE IT DIFFICULT

FOR HER TO BREATHE OR DO ANY

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY.

WHEN I PLAY, I GET TIRED

EASILY.

I HAVE TO SIT DOWN MOST OF

THE TIME.

ONE NIGHT SHE WAS

BREATHING SO HARD I RUSHED

HER TO THE HOSPITAL.

I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO

LOSE HER.

SOMETIMES I WISHED HER

SICKNESS WAS LIKE A DRESS.

I WOULD HAVE TAKEN IT AND

WORN IT IN HER PLACE.

IT IS SO HARD.

Reporter: ALEXANDER AND

HER HUSBAND KNEW THAT HEART

SURGERY COULD SAVE THEIR

DAUGHTER'S LIFE, BUT THEIR

COMBINED INCOME COULD BARELY

PAY FOR MEDICINE.

WHEN SOMEONE FROM CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" MET

SANDY, WE PRAYED FOR HER AND

ARRANGED FOR HER TO HAVE

FREE SURGERY TO CLOSE THE

HOLE IN HER HEART.

AFTER THE OPERATION, WE ALSO

GAVE HER FOLLOWUP CARE AND

MEDICINE.

THE PAIN IN MY CHEST IS

GONE, AND I DON'T FEEL

TIRED.

MY DAUGHTER IS ALIVE.

SHE LOOKS GREAT.

EVEN WHEN SHE PLAYS THE

WHOLE DAY.

I REALLY THANK GOD FOR CBN.

THANK VERY MUCH FOR HELP

ME.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: YOU GAVE SANDY A

HEALED HEART, A HOPE, HER

CHILDHOOD BACK, A FUTURE.

ALL OF THAT BECAUSE YOU

CARED ENOUGH TO GIVE.

YOU SEE, THAT'S THE WAY IT

WORKS.

YOU AND I COME TOGETHER.

WE SAY, WE WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

WE COMBINE OUR GIVING, AND

WE REACH OUT TO THE WORLD.

YOU REALLY CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

THAT'S WHY RIGHT NOW WE'RE

ASKING YOU TO GO TO YOUR

PHONE AND CALL.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIG

CHALLENGE NOW, $275,000.

BE A PART OF THAT BECAUSE

THE MORE WE ARE ABLE TO

GIVE, THE MORE WE ARE ABLE

TO TOUCH THE LIVES OF PEOPLE

IN NEED.

WHEN YOU CALL, WHETHER

YOU'RE CALLING ON THE PHONE

OR LOGGING ON TO cbn.com

TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB," USE

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES ALL

OF THE WORK.

IT IS REALLY PRETTY

WONDERFUL.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE

STAMPS OR ENVELOPES ON

HAND.

IT IS JUST DONE FOR YOU.

BUT IT SAVES US PROCESSING

COSTS, ENOUGH THAT WE WANT

TO SEND YOU THIS, "POWER FOR

LIFE" TEACHING.

YOU'LL GET ONE OF THEM EVERY

MONTH.

WE THINK THEY WILL BE A REAL

BLESSING TOW TO YOU, AND

YOU, AT THE SAME TIME, WILL

BE BLESSING OTHERS.

DO IT NOW, JOIN.

AND WE SAY THANK YOU.

Gordon: MANY CHILDREN

ARE AFRAID OF THE DARK, BUT

THESE CHILDREN HAD A REASON

TO BE SCARED: THEY LIVE IN

AN OPEN, PLASTIC TENT, AND

AT NIGHT THE RATS CAME IN.

Reporter: IN HER HOME,

MADE OUT OF PLASTIC AND TREE

LIMBS, 39-YEAR-OLD ELIANA

HAS STRUGGLED, TRYING TO

PROVIDE FOR HER THREE SMALL

CHILDREN.

SHE EARNS MONEY BY WASHING

CLOTHES BY HAND.

SHE TOLD US LIVING HERE

WOULDN'T BE SO BAD, EXCEPT

FOR THE RATS.

SOMETIMES THEY BITE THE

CHILDREN WHILE THEY ARE

SLEEPING.

A RAT BIT ME ON MY TOE.

IT HURT ME A LOT.

I WAS AFRAID TO GO TO

SLEEP BECAUSE I WAS AFRAID

THAT THE RAT WOULD BITE ME.

Reporter: THE RATS

OFTEN CAME OUT AT NIGHT,

WHILE THE HOUSE WAS

COMPLETELY DARK.

BECAUSE ELIANA COULDN'T

AFFORD TO PAY FOR

ELECTRICITY.

I AM VERY AFRAID OF

DARKNESS.

Reporter: WHEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" MET THE

FAMILY, WE BUILT THEM A

STURDY NEW HOUSE, AWAY FROM

THE RATS.

I'M HAPPY FOR MY NEW

HOUSE.

THERE ARE NO RATS

ANYMORE.

I REALLY LIKE MY HOUSE.

Reporter: THEN WE HAD

THE ELECTRICITY TURNED ON.

AND TO HELP THIS SINGLE MOM

EXPAND HER LAUNDRY BUSINESS,

WE GAVE HER A NEW WASHING

MACHINE.

THIS IS AMAZING.

I WASH FASTER AND FOR MORE

PEOPLE WITH THE WASHING

MACHINE.

Reporter: NOW WITH THE

INCREASE IN BUSINESS, ELIANA

WILL BE ABLE TO PAY THE

ELECTRIC BILL AND FEED HER

KIDS.

THANK YOU, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR OUR NEW

HOUSE.

WE NO LONGER LIVE WITH THE

RATS.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING US

HOPE.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE

RESPONSIBLE FOR GIVING THAT

FAMILY HOPE.

AND THAT'S WHAT GOD WANTS TO

DO FOR ALL HIS CHILDREN.

HE WANTS TO GIVE US A HOPE

AND A FUTURE.

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

THIS IS AN INTERESTING FACT,

DID YOU KNOW BY THE TIME YOU

DIE, YOU'LL HAVE SPENT SIX

YEARS OF YOUR LIFE

DREAMING?

THAT'S HARD TO BELIEVE,

ISN'T IT.

IF YOU THINK THAT'S A WASTE

OF TIME, YOU MIGHT THINK

AGAIN.

YOUR DREAMS MAY BE THE VERY

THING GOD IS USING TO SPEAK

TO YOU.

Announcer: FROM

EMPERORS, PHARAOHS AND

KINGS --

GOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN

THROUGH THE AGES SPEAKING TO

PEOPLE THROUGH DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

Announcer: TO

SCIENTISTS, MUSICIANS, AND

EVEN CHILDREN.

I'VE HAD THIS DREAM

BEFORE.

IT HAPPENED A COUPLE OF

WEEKS BEFORE.

I'VE HAD THIS DREAM BEFORE.

Announcer: SEE THE

DREAMS THAT CHANGED OUR

FUTURE AND LEARN WHAT TO DO

WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO YOU.

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT,"

Wendy: I KNOW I'VE HAD

MANY DREAMS WHERE GOD HAS

WARNED ME OF THINGS IN THE

FUTURE, EITHER PERSONALLY OR

NATIONALLY OR

INTERNATIONALLY.

ENCOURAGEMENT.

IF YOU'RE A DREAMER, AND YOU

THAT MEANS IF YOU GO TO YOUR

PHONES RIGHT NOW, EVERY

DOLLAR YOU PLEDGE WILL BE

MATCHED DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

I'M GOING THROW IT BACK OVER

TO TERRY MEEUWSEN.

Terry: WHEN WHEN A

HAILSTORM DESTROYED HER

HOUSE, PROVIDING FOR HER

FAMILY BECAME EVEN MORE

DIFFICULT.

Reporter: WHEN NASHA'S

HUSBAND PASSED AWAY TWO

YEARS AGO, ALL HE WAS ABLE

TO LEAVE TO HIS WIFE AND TWO

CHILDREN IS THIS BAMBOO

HOUSE, WHICH HE HAD BUILT

WITH HIS OWN HANDS.

OUR HOUSE GAVE US SHADE

FROM THE SUN AND SHELTER

FROM THE RAIN.

Reporter: TO MAKE

MONEY, NASHA GREW ON

BORROWED LAND.

UNTIL THE OWNER SAID SHE

COULD NO LONGER USE IT.

LIFE HAS BECOME VERY

HARD.

I HAD TO TAKE ON MY

HUSBAND'S JOB OF EARNING

MON.

I WON'T GIVE UP, THOUGH,

BECAUSE I LOVE MY CHILDREN.

Reporter: THEN A STORM

WITH BASEBALL-SIZED HAIL

NEARLY DESTROYED THEIR

BAMBOO HOUSE.

WE WERE TERRIFIED.

THE STORM BLEW PARTS OF OUR

WALLS AWAY.

WE PRAYED GOD WOULD PROTECT

US.

Reporter: AFTER THE

STORM, NASHA COULDN'T AFFORD

TO FIX THE HOUSE OR THE

ROOF, SO THEY LIVED IN WHAT

REMAINED.

WHEN A STAFF MEMBER FROM CBN

SAW HOW THEY WERE LIVING, WE

BUILT THEM A BRAND NEW

HOUSE.

I NEVER DREAMED THAT I

WOULD HAVE A HOUSE LIKE

THIS.

GOD SENT HIS SERVANTS TO

HELP ME.

Reporter: AND WE GAVE

HER SOME PIGS TO RAISE AND

SELL.

WE ALSO GAVE HER THE TOOLS

AND SEED NEEDED TO START A

SMALL GARDEN OUTSIDE HER NEW

HOME.

I AM SO HAPPY.

GOD HAS BLESSED ME THROUGH

CBN.

MY CHILDREN AND I GIVE

THANKS TO GOD, AND TO YOU

FOR ALL YOUR HELP.

Terry: THIS WAS

THAILAND, THE WIDOW TRYING

TO RAISE HER CHILDREN,

DOING THE BEST SHE COULD.

AND THEN LIFE HAPPENS.

IT HAPPENS TO ALL OF US, BUT

IN SOME PLACES IN THE WORLD,

PEOPLE HAVE A HARD TIME

RECOVERING FROM THAT.

THAT'S WHY YOU AND I HAVE

THE BLESSING OF BEING ABLE

TO STEP IN AND SAY, WE WANT

TO COME ALONGSIDE OF YOU AND

GIVE YOU A HAND UP, THE

ABILITY TO REACH OUT AND

START OVER AGAIN, TO HAVE A

NEW LIFE, TO PROVIDE FOR

YOUR CHILDREN.

THAT'S ALL PART OF BEING A

"700 CLUB" MEMBER.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE ASKING YOU

RIGHT NOW TO GO TO YOUR

PHONE AND CALL.

JOIN WITH THE REST OF US.

WE CAN TOUCH AND CHANGE THE

WORLD.

"THE 700 CLUB" MEMBERSHIP,

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A "700

CLUB" MEMBER, GO UP TO THE

NEXT CLUB LEVEL.

THERE IS A LIST OF THE

OPTIONS BEFORE YOU.

ASK GOD PRAYERFULLY WHAT HE

WOULD HAVE YOU DO, AND THEN

GIVE WITH GUSTO, EXPECTING

GOD TO USE YOU IN A POWERFUL

WAY, TO TRULY MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

PLEASE, CALL NOW.

GORDON?

Gordon: IN COSTA RICA,

MANY CHILDREN DROP OUT OF

SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO

SPEND THEIR DAY LOOKING FOR

FOOD.

SO "ORPHANS' PROMISE" SOLVED

THAT PROBLEM BY BRINGING THE

FOOD TO THE SCHOOLS.

Reporter: HERE IN ONE

OF COSTA RICA'S POOREST

NEIGHBORHOODS, A CHRISTIAN

SCHOOL IS HELPING TO EDUCATE

CHILDREN.

BUT THE SCHOOL WAS FACING A

CRISIS.

MOST OF THE KIDS WERE

HUNGRY.

SOME WERE EVEN STARVING.

LIKE KENDRICK, WHO GOT

EMOTIONAL WHEN HE TALKED

ABOUT HIS FRIENDS.

I FEEL SAD THAT WE DIDN'T

HAVE ANYTHING TO EAT.

SOMETIMES IF I HAD FOOD, I

SHARED IT WITH MY FRIENDS.

Reporter: FOR A WHILE,

THE SCHOOL HAD PROVIDED

MEALS FOR THE STUDENTS.

BUT THE PROGRAM GOT CLOSED

DOWN WHEN THEY RAN OUT OF

MONEY.

UNFORTUNATELY, BECAUSE WE

COULDN'T GIVE KIDS THAT ONE

MEAL, MANY OF THEM DROPPED

OUT OF THE SCHOOL.

Reporter: THANKS TO

CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE,"

THE SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM WAS

ABLE TO START UP AGAIN.

NOW KENDRICK AND HIS FRIENDS

HAVE A MEAL EVERY DAY DURING

SCHOOL.

TO CELEBRATE THE REOPENING

OF THE LUNCH PROGRAM, WE

BROUGHT "SUPERBOOK'S" GIZMO

TO VISIT.

WE THEN SHOWED THE KIDS ONE

OF THE NEW EPISODES FROM THE

CBN ANIMATED SERIES.

THAT DAY WAS FUN.

WE LEARNED ABOUT JONAH AND

WHY THE FISH SWALLOWED HIM.

Reporter: AND NOW THE

KIDS ARE DOING BETTER IN

SCHOOL, TOO.

THE PERFORMANCE IS UP

THIS YEAR.

WE CAN SAY IT IS DIRECTLY

RELATED TO WHEN WE RESTARTED

THE MEAL PROGRAM FOR THE

KIDS.

I AM SO GRATEFUL.

IT IS A GREAT GIFT THAT YOU

HAVE GIVEN TO US.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

THAT.

YOU'RE PART OF GIVING

CHILDREN A GREAT GIFT.

YOU'RE PART OF DOING THESE

THINGS AROUND THE WORLD.

NOT JUST HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES, BUT IN

LATIN-AMERICA, IN AFRICA, IN

INDIA, CHINA, INDONESIA, THE

PHILIPPINES.

WE WANT TO REACH THE WORLD

WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS

CHRIST.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

THAT, JUST JOIN US.

A PORTION OF EVERY GIFT GOES

INTO THE WORK OF "OPERATION

BLESSING."

ANOTHER PORTION GOES INTO

THE WORK OF CBN

INTERNATIONAL TO PREACH THE

GOSPEL AROUND THE WORLD,

WHERE WE TRAIN LOCAL

CHRISTIANS HOW TO DO

CHRISTIAN TELEVISION.

NOT IN ENGLISH, BUT IN THEIR

OWN LANGUAGE, WITH

TESTIMONIES OF WHAT JESUS IS

DOING IN THEIR COUNTRY, NO

SOME FAR AWAY TIME OR FAR

AWAY PLACE.

AND YOU'RE A PART OF ALL OF

IT WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

SO GO TO THE PHONE AND DO

IT.

1-800-759-0700.

ASK FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS WHEN

YOU CALL.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING WHERE THE BANK DOES

ALL OF THE WORK, AND WE SEND

TO YOU OUR GIFT, "POWER FOR

LIFE," MONTHLY TEACHING

C.D.s.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE THOSE, ASK

FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS WHEN YOU

CALL, OR LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

WHEN YOU GIVE ON THE

INTERNET MONTHLY, YOU

AUTOMATICALLY SIGN UP FOR

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN A HINDU

FARMER NEEDED CLEAN WATER,

HE DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING

RADICAL.

HE PRAYED TO THE CHRISTIAN

GOD FOR HELP.

HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

AND HOW THAT PRAYER CHANGED

AN ENTIRE VILLAGE.

Reporter: RAISING

LIVESTOCK IN THE HILLS OF

NORTHWEST INDIA CAN BE A VR

VERY DIFFICULT JOB,

ESPECIALLY IF YOU DON'T HAVE

A CLOSE WATER SOURCE.

SOHAN HAD TO WALK TWO MILES

TO GET WATER FOR HIS FAMILY,

CATTLE, AND GOATS.

HE BEGGED HIS HINDU GODS FOR

HELP, BUT NOTHING CHANGED.

THEN 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.

Reporter: IT WASN'T

LONG ISN'T JOHAN SAW HIS

PRAYERS ANSWERED.

CBN'S LIVING WATERS TEAM

CAME TO HIS VILLAGE AND

DRILLED A WELL.

THIS WELL IS A BIG

BLESSING TO MY FAMILY ANDp?

VILLAGE.

IT IS ALSO A BLESSING TO MY

CATTLE AND GOATS.

NOW I CAN BATHE THEM AND

GIVE THEM PLENTY OF WATER TO

DRINK.

I AM SO HAPPY.

Reporter:

SOHAN

AND HIS

FAMILY GAVE THEIR LIVES TO

CHRIST.

AND THEY WEREN'T THE ONLY

ONES.

168 OTHER VILLAGERS WERE

BAPTIZED BECAUSE THEY SAW

THE WELL AS A TANGIBLE SIGN

THAT GOD IS REAL AND HE

LOVES THEM.

I BELIEVE JESUS CHRIST IS

THE

ONE TRUE GOD BECAUSE HE

GAVE ME WATER AFTER I PRAYED

FOR A WELL.

MY FAMILY DRINKS WATER FROM

IT, AND THEY ARE HAPPY AND

AT PEACE.

WHEN I

DIE, I KNOW I WILL BE

IN HEAVEN WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

Terry: A FAMILY WHO

FOUND TRUTH BECAUSE OF YOUR

CARING AND YOUR GENEROSITY.

THAT KIND OF OPPORTUNITY,

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, JOSEPH

AND DANIEL OFTEN INTERPRETED

OTHER PEOPLE'S DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

THAT IS NOT JUST FOR PEOPLE

IN THE BIBLE.

YOU CAN INTERPRET YOUR OWN

DREAMS AS WELL.

WE'LL HELP YOU LEARN HOW IN

OUR NEW D.V.D. "VISIONS OF

THE NIGHT."

HERE IS A QUICK PREVIEW WITH

AUTHOR JANE HAMMOND.

NOT EVERY DREAM IS FROM

THE LORD, AND NEITHER IS

EVERY NIGHTMARE FROM THE

DEVIL.

WHEN I WAS 18 YEARS OLD, I

HAD A DREAM ONE NIGHT THAT

WAS A LIFE-CHANGING DREAM

FOR ME.

THAT REALLY PUT ME ON A

JOURNEY TO BEGIN STUDYING

DREAMS FROM A BIBLICAL

PERSPECTIVE.

I WAS BLOWN AWAY BY THAT.

ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE OLD

TESTAMENT, EVEN INTO THE NEW

TESTAMENT, ALL THE WAY

THROUGH TO THE BOOK OF

REVELATION, GOD HAS BEEN

SPEAKING TO PEOPLE THROUGH

DREAMS AND VISIONS.

IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER, IF

GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU, THEN

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO

LEARN TO DISCERN THE VOICE

OF GOD.

Wendy: WOW!

IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO

LEARN TO DISCERN THE VOICE

OF GOD.

I LOVE JANE HAMMOND, SHE IS

A PHENOMENAL BIBLE TEACHER

AND HAS WRITTEN A BOOK ON

DREAMS.

WE HAVE THE PERFECT GIFT FOR

YOU, "VISIONS OF THE NIGHT,"

HOW GOD SPEAKS YOU IN

DREAMS.

THIS CAN BE YOURS WHEN YOU

CALL AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "700 CLUB."

I WANT TO DO SOMETHING

DIFFERENT THIS YEAR, I WANT

TO HELP OTHERS.

THIS IS THE TIME, LIKE TERRY

SAID.

THIS IS A BRAND NEW YEAR.

YOU CANNOT OUTGIVE GOD.

WHAT YOU DO AT THE BEGINNING

OF THE YEAR IS SO IMPORTANT,

AND IT GIVES GOD AN

OPPORTUNITY TO MOVE ON YOUR

BEHALF.

BUT IF YOU DON'T DO

ANYTHING, YOU CAN'T EXPECT

ANYTHING.

PLEASE GO TO YOUR PHONES

RIGHT NOW, 1-800-759-0700.

OR LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

WE'RE GOING TO BLESS YOU

WITH "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT."

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TAKE IT

TO THE GOLD LEVEL, $40 A

MONTH, WE'RE GOING TO BLESS

YOU BACK WITH THREE

D.V.D.s.

IF YOU CAN DO MORE, $84 A

MONTH, OUR THOUSAND CLUB

LEVEL, WE'RE GOING TO BLESS

YOU WITH FIVE.

SO PLEASE GO TO OUR PHONES

RIGHT NOW AND SAY YES.

GORDON?

Gordon: THIS WINTER HAS

BROUGHT RECORD-BREAKING COLD

TO MANY PARTS OF THE WORLD.

IN UKRAINE, GYPSY FAMILIES

ARE USED TO SUB ZERO

TEMPERATURES, AND EVERY

WINTER IS A FIGHT FOR

SURVIVAL.

Reporter: WINTER CAN BE

A BEAUTIFUL TIME OF YEAR,

BUT FOR GYPSY FAMILIES IN

THE UKRAINE, IT IS A

DIFFICULT SEASON TO

SURVIVE.

IT IS SO COLD IN OUR

HOUSE.

ALL OF US ARE FREEZING.

WE CAN'T EVEN COVER

OURSELVES BECAUSE WE HAVE NO

BLANKETS.

Reporter: THIS OLD

STOVE IS THE ONLY SOURCE OF

HEAT IN VOSI AND FLORA'S

HOME.

WE PUT A LOT OF WOOD INTO

IT, AND IT'S CONSUMED WITHIN

MINUTES.

AND AS SOON AS THE FIRE

GOES OUT, THERE IS NO

WARMTH.

IT IS FREEZING COLD AGAIN.

BUT THE BIGGEST PROBLEM

IS THAT WHEN WE USE IT, THE

SMOKE FILLS UP THE ENTIRE

HOUSE.

Reporter: THE CHILDREN

GET SICK ALL OF THE TIME

FROM BREATHING THE SMOKE,

LIVING WITHOUT HEAT, AND NOT

HAVING ANY WARM CLOTHES.

SHE IS SICK, SO I TOOK

HER TO

THE HOSPITAL

YESTERDAY.

SHE IS SICK, TOO.

AND THIS ONE HAS A FEVER.

Reporter: WE KNEW WE

HAD TO DO SOMETHING TO HELP

THIS FAMILY SURVIVE THE

HARSH WINTERS.

SO WE INSTALLED NEW WINDOWS,

PUT A NEW ROOF AND NEW DOOR

ON THEIR HOME AND INSTALLED

A NEW STOVE THAT DOESN'T

SMOKE.

YOU GAVE US CLOTHING AND

MEDICINE FOR OUR CHILDREN,

TOO.

THE JACKETS ARE SO WARM THEY

CAN GO OUTSIDE NOW.

ALL OF US ARE VERY

THANKFUL.

THE NEW STOVE DOESN'T USE

NEARLY AS MUCH WOOD.

SO NOW I CAN SELL THE EXTRA

WOOD TO BUY FOOD.

OUR LIVES ARE SO MUCH

BETTER NOW AND OUR CHILDREN

NO LONGER FREEZE.

I PRAISE THE LORD FOR THIS.

THANK YOU.

Gordon: THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," THANK YOU.

YOU'RE HELPING PEOPLE ALL

AROUND THE WORLD.

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, NOW

IS THE TIME TO DO IT.

WE'RE CLOSING IN ON VICTORY

ON A $275,000.

WE WANT TO GO WAY OVER THE

TOP.

WE JUST HAVE A MINUTE AND 40

SECONDS LEFT ON THAT CLOCK.

GO TO THE PHONE AND CALL US,

1-800-759-0700.

SAY, YES, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS JUST $20 A MONTH.

TERRY?

Terry: ERIC IS A

TYPICAL BOY WHEN IT COMES TO

PLAYING, AND HE IS PRETTY

FEARLESS.

SO ONE DAY ERIC PUT HIMSELF

IN HARM'S WAY WITHOUT EVEN

KNOWING IT.

Reporter: LIKE MOST

BOYS HIS AGE, 10-YEAR-OLD

ERIC AND HIS FRIENDS LOVE

CATCHING BUGS AND FISH IN

THE SMALL CANALS NEAR THEIR

HOME.

ONE DAY ERIC REACHED INTO A

HOLE AND FELT SOMETHING BITE

HIM.

A SNAKE BIT MY FINGER.

I SCREAMED FOR HELP AND RAN

HOME.

Reporter: A SHORT TIME

LATER, ERIC SHOWED UP HERE

AT THIS FREE CBN MEDICAL

CLINIC THAT HAD COME TO HIS

VILLAGE IN THE PHILIPPINES.

DR. WENDELL TOOK ONE LOOK AT

THE SWOLLEN FINGER AND KNEW

THE BOY WAS IN DANGER.

THE SNAKE'S VENOM WAS NOT

LETHAL, OR ERIC WOULD NOT

LIVE THIS LONG.

BUT THE VENOM DID CAUSE HIS

TISSUES TO DIE.

WITHOUT PROPER TREATMENT, HE

COULD LOOSE THE FINGER

LOSE

HIS FINGER OR HAND.

Reporter: A NURSE GAVE

HIM A TETANUS SHOT.

BY THE END OF THE DAY, ERIC

WAS FEELING SO MUCH BETTER,

HE DID A CARTWHEEL FOR US

AND FOR HIS FRIEND.

THANK YOU.

YOU'RE THE BEST.

Terry: BEING THERE IN

TIMES OF NEED, THAT'S WHAT

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS DO.

JOIN WITH US SO WE CAN MAKE

A DIFFERENCE.

1-800-759-0700.

CALL US NOW.

GORDON?

Gordon: WE'VE HAD A

GLORIOUS DAY.

IT IS WONDERFUL.

WE HAD A $275,000, AND

AGAINST THAT YOU GAVE

$296,000.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PROVERBS 14: "HE

WHO HAS MERCY, HAPPY IS

HE."

FOR TERRY AND ME AND ALL OF

US HERE, GOD BLESS YOU, AND

GOD BLESS ALL WHO GAVE.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN

TOMORROW.
