[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

CAN THE COURTS PUT LIMITS,

GEOGRAPHICAL LIMITS, ABOUT

YOUR FREE SPEECH?

THAT'S THE QUESTION BEFORE

THE SUPREME COURT TODAY.

Terry: THE HIGH COURT

HAS HEARD A CASE ABOUT A LAW

THAT PREVENTS PRO-LIFE

SUPPORTERS FROM VOICING

THEIR OPINIONS TOO CLOSE TO

AN ABORTION CLINIC.

PAUL STRAND HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: MASSACHUSETTS

SET UP 35 BUBBLE ZONES

AROUND THE ENTRANCES AND

EXITS TO ITS ABORTION

CLINICS IN 2007, AFTER A FEW

EPISODES OF VIOLENCE AND

EVEN MURDER OF CLINIC

WORKERS AND ANGRY

CONFRONTATIONS.

THERE WERE LARGE GROUPS

OF PEOPLE STANDING SHOULDER

TO SHOULDER IN OUR DOORWAY,

USUALLY SCREAMING AT FULL

VOLUME, TRYING TO PREVENT

OUR PATIENTS AND STAFF FROM

COME NOO COMING INTO THE

HEALTH CENTER.

Reporter: PRO-LIFERS

SAY IT IS PREVENTING THEM

FROM SAVING UNBORN BABIES,

WHO'S MOTHERS MAY CHANGE

THEIR MIND WITH AN

ENCOURAGING WORD.

MRS. McCULUM AND OTHERS

HAVE BEEN GREATLY HINDERED

IN THEIR MINISTRY.

THEY HAVE HAD HUNDREDS OF

SAVES IN THE PAST, AND THAT

HAS DWINDLED TO NEXT TO

NOTHING.

Reporter: McCULUM AND

OTHERS SUED OVER THE

MASSACHUSETTS LAW.

SHE TOLD CBN NEWS SHE

DOESN'T HARASS WOMEN, BUT

HELPS THEM.

AND SHE SAYS MOST WOMEN

DON'T WANT TO GET AN

ABORTION.

BUT THEY CAN'T SEE A WAY OUT

UNTIL SOMEBODY LIKE HER

COMES ALONG.

LOSING ONE BABY IS ONE

TOO MANY.

ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS BY

ABORTION.

YOU KNOW ONE FOURTH OF OUR

YOUNG PEOPLE ARE MISSING.

Reporter: THE COURTS

HAVE UPHELD THE BUBBLE ZONE

LAW IN THE PAST, BUT A

NUMBER OF JUSTICES ARE

QUESTIONING THIS

MASSACHUSETTS LAW.

THE FATE OF SIMILAR BUFFER

ZONE LAWS AROUND THE COUNTRY

NOW HANGS IN THE BALANCE.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS, THE

SUPREME COURT.

Gordon: A NEW

GOVERNMENT REPORT SAYS THE

DEADLY ATTACKS ON AMERICANS

IN BENGHAZI COULD HAVE BEEN

PREVENTED.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: THE REPORT IS

THE FINDING OF A YEAR LONG

INVESTIGATION BY THE SENATE

AND INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE.

SENATORS WANTED TO KNOW WHAT

EXACTLY PROMPTED THE ATTACKS

THAT LEFT FOUR AMERICANS

DEAD, INCLUDING CHRIS

STEVENS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: IN THE FIRST

TRULY BIPARTISAN LOOK AT THE

DEAD OF ATTACK AT THE U.S.

CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI, THE

SENATE COMMITTEE BLAMES THE

STATE DEPARTMENT, THE

MILITARY, AND U.S.

INTELLIGENCE, FOR MISSING

OBVIOUS WARNING SIGNS.

THE REPORT INDICATES THERE

WERE NO PROTESTS PRIOR TO

THE ATTACKS AS THE WHITE

HOUSE FIRST CLAIMED.

AT LEAST 60 TERRORISTS PEN

STRAIGHTED TH PEN.

PEPENETRATED THE

CONSULATE.

IN RESPONSE CLINTON'S

SPOKESPERSON REFERRED ALL

QUESTIONS BACK TO THE STATE

DEPARTMENT, WHICH DISPUTED

THE CONCLUSION THE ATTACK

COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED.

BUT OTHERS CONTEND THE

THREAT WAS CLEAR.

SENATOR ZAC CHAMBLIS ISSUED

THIS STATEMENT, "IN SPITE OF

THE DETERIORATING SITUATION

IN BENGHAZI, THE UNITED

STATES SIMPLY DID NOT DO

ENOUGH TO PREVENT THESE

ATTACKS AND ENSURE THE

SAFETY OF THOSE SERVING IN

BENGHAZI."

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: THE REPORT

ALSO POINTS OUT THAT

AMBASSADOR STEVENS HAD

REJECTED ADDITIONAL SECURITY

BEFORE THE ATTACKS.

WELL, TODAY IS NATIONAL

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM DAY IN

AMERICA.

EVERY JANUARY 16th, THE

PRESIDENT ISSUES A

PROCLAMATION COMMEMORATING

THE PASSAGE.

THOMAS JEFFERSON WROTE THE

STATUTE WHICH BECAME THE

BASIS FOR THE RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM GUARANTEE.

THE STATUE READS, "NO ONE

SHOULD BE COMPELLED TO,."

GORDON, MORE THAN 200 YEARS

LATER, THAT RIGHT REMAINS

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT

RIGHTS WE HAVE IN AMERICA.

Gordon: AND IT IS PART

OF THE U.N. CHARTER.

THERE IS A SIMILAR WORDING.

NOT IDENTICAL, BUT SIMILAR.

IT IS AMAZING, WHEN WE LOOK

AT THE WORLD TODAY, HOW

OFTEN THAT CHARTER IS NOT

BEING FOLLOWED.

AND IT IS ESPECIALLY TRAGIC

THAT IN AFGHANISTAN AND

IRAQ, COUNTRIES WERE

AMERICANS HAVE LOST THEIR

BLOOD AND THEIR LIVES, WE

INSTALL THE CONSTITUTION

THAT DOESN'T GUARANTEE

THAT.

WE INSTALL CONSTITUTIONS

THAT ARE BASED ON SHARI'A

LAW, WHICH RECOGNIZES NO

RELIGION, OTHER THAN ISLAM.

WE'LL BE BACK AFTER THIS.

Gordon: AS A LAWYER,

RANDY EARNED A LOT OF

MONEY.

HE ALSO SPENT A LOT OF

MONEY.

SOON RANDY AND HIS WIFE WERE

$75,000 IN DEBT.

AND THE CREDITORS WERE ON

THE PHONE.

GOOD MORNING.

Reporter: RANDY RODKIS

IS A SUCCESSFUL ATTORNEY IN

JONESTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA.

HELPING PEOPLE IS THE

REAL SATISFACTION.

Reporter: RANDY AND HIS

WIFE, KAREN, WERE YOUNG

NEWLYWEDS WHEN HE OPENED HIS

OWN LAW FIRM.

I HAD THE ABILITY TO EARN

MONEY, BUT I HAD THE ABILITY

TO SPEND MONEY.

THE MONEY CAME IN, AND IT

WENT OUT, AND WE WEREN'T

GETTING ANYWHERE.

Reporter: ACCEPT DEEPLY

IN DEBT.

THEY HAD HOME EQUITY LOANS

AND HOME LOANS AND CAR AND

CREDIT CARD DEBT THAT

TOTALLED $70,000MENT.

> $70,000.

I WANTED A NICE CAR.

BEING AN ATTORNEY, I

THOUGHT, I WILL MAKE MORE

MONEY.

I KNEW IT WAS CAUSING MORE

STRESS ON KAREN.

I PHYSICALLY WOULD HAVE

TIMES WHEN I WOULD JUST

SHAKE.

SOMETIMES YOU WOULD GET A

PHONE CALL.

THIS CREDITOR WOULD WANT TO

KNOW, WELL, WHERE IS THERE

PAYMENT.

THAT WAS VERY EMBARRASSING.

Reporter: AFTER SEVERAL

YEARS, THE COUPLE AGREED ON

ONE THING: THEY NEED TO

RETURN TO CHURCH.

ONCE THERE THEY RECOMMITTED

THEIR LIVES TO CHRIST.

THAT'S WHERE THEY LEARNED

ABOUT THE PRINCIPLE OF

TITHING.

I WOULD HAVE TAKEN ALL OF

OUR MONEY AND PAID OFF THE

BILLS AND GIVE THE REST TO

THE LORD.

I WOULD LOOK AT OUR

INCOME AND THE BILLS AND

SAY, THERE IS NO WAY.

I PRAYED FOR RANDY.

AND I PRAYED THAT GOD WOULD

SHOW HIM.

Reporter: SOON KAREN'S

PRAYER WAS ANSWERED.

I WAS GOING TO WORK ONE

DAY, AND THE FINANCIAL

PRESSURE WAS REALLY BOILING

OVER.

AND I JUST YELLED OUT IN THE

CAR, GOD, WHY ARE YOU DOING

THIS TO ME?

AND THE "THIS" WAS LACK, NOT

HAVING ENOUGH TO MEET THE

BILLS.

AS CLEARLY AS I SPOKE, THERE

WAS A VOICE FROM THE BACK

SEAT.

AND HE SAID, DON'T TRUST IN

MONEY; TRUST IN GOD.

THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND

THAT THE GOD OF THIS

UNIVERSE SPOKE TO ME

PERSONALLY THAT MORNING.

Reporter: THEY SAY THEY

TITHED FAITHFULLY FOR

MONTHS, AND YET SAW NO

INCREASES IN THEIR

FINANCES.

FINALLY THE LIGHT WENT ON

THAT WE WERE NOT BEING GOOD

STEWARDS.

I COULD SEE GOD'S WISDOM.

HE WASN'T GOING TO POUR OUT

MORE MONEY FOR US TO JUST

SPEND MORE MONEY.

Reporter: SO THE FAMILY

BEGAN TO PAY THEIR BILLS

EARLY AND STOPPED USING

CREDIT CARDS.

THEY PAID DOWN THEIR DEBT,

AND THEY ALSO INCREASED

THEIR GIVING.

THE MORE WE DID, THE MORE

HE DID.

AND THE MORE HE WOULD THEN

TRUST US WITH MORE.

Reporter: THEN RANDY

RECEIVED AN OFFER TO BECOME

A PARTNER IN A PRESTIGIOUS

LAW FIRM, AND THEY WERE ABLE

TO PAY OFF MORE OF THEIR

DEBT.

GOD REALLY PUT IN MY

HEART TO BE DEBT-FREE,

BECAUSE IT WOULD FREE UP THE

MONEY TO DO HIS WORK.

Reporter: AND THEN IN

1985, THEY JOINED "THE 700

CLUB."

THEY RESPOND WHEN THERE

IS A NEED.

Reporter: TODAY THE

COUPLE IS COMPLETELY

DEBT-FREE.

TITHING BRINGS BLESSING,

THAT'S TRUE.

BUT, ALSO, WE ARE TO HONOR

GOD IN

OUR LIFE

LIFESTYLE.

YOU NEVER CAN OUTGIVE THE

LORD.

WE ARE LIVING THAT.

IT IS A SIMPLE BEGINNING.

JUST DO WHAT HE SAYS.

DO WHAT HE SAYS.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE, AND IT'S REALLY THE

COMMANDMENT FROM JESUS.

YOU LOOK AT IN MAT MATTHEW

6: "DON'T STORE OF TREASURES

HERE ON EARTH WHERE THEY CAN

ERODE.

STORE THEM UP IN HEAVEN,

WHERE THEY NEVER LOSE THEIR

VALUE.

IF YOUR PROFITS ARE IN

HEAVEN, YOU'RE HEART WILL BE

THERE, TOO."

BECKY HAD FIVE KIDS, NO JOB,

AND A HUSBAND IN PRISON, BUT

SHE STILL MANAGED TO PAY OFF

$100,000 IN DEBT.

HERE IS HOW SHE DID IT.

Reporter: DRUG

POSSESSION CONVICTIONS

LANDED BECKY'S HUSBAND IN

TEXAS STATE PRISON.

WITHOUT HIM AROUND, SHE WAS

IN CHARGE OF THE FAMILY'S

FINANCES AND DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

IT WAS DEVASTATING.

WE OWED EVERYBODY.

Reporter: HER HUSBAND,

JIMMY, HAD ALWAYS BEEN A

HARD WORKER AND A SOLID

PROVIDER, UNTIL DRUG

ADDICTION WRECKED HIS LIFE

AND DESTROYED HIS

CAR-CRUSHING BUSINESS.

BILLS MOUNTED AND CREDITORS

CALLED.

BECKY'S JOB DIDN'T EVEN

COVER THEIR HOUSEHOLD

EXPENSES.

AS SHE WONDERED HOW TO GET

BY, BECKY SAYS GOD TOLD HER

TO TAKE OVER HER HUSBAND'S

BUSINESS.

THE LORD SAID, YOU HAVE

TO TAKE OVER HIS BUSINESS.

I SAID, I DON'T NOW HOW.

HE SAID, YOU DON'T, BUT I

DO.

AND WE'LL DO IT.

Reporter: THIS IS A

LOVE STORY.

SHE LOVED JIMMY WHEN NOBODY

ELSE COULD LOVE HIM OR WOULD

LOVE HIM.

Reporter: JIMMY READ

LETTERS

HOW

HIS WIFE COVERED

THE TR TRI STATE AREA.

FROM THE BEGINNING, SHE

LOOKED TO GOD FOR HELP.

HONESTLY, I RAN THIS

BUSINESS ON FAITH.

AND I PRAYED ABOUT EVERY

DECISION BECAUSE I LIVED

FROM DAY TO DAY.

Reporter: AS THE MONEY

CAME IN, SHE TITHED TO HER

LOCAL CHURCH.

SHE ALSO STARTED GIVING TO

"THE 700 CLUB" AND CALLING

THE PRAYER LINE OFTEN.

IT WAS JUST NICE TO HEAR,

YOU CAN DO THIS.

LET'S PRAY ABOUT IT.

Reporter: BECKY BUILT

SOLID BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS

AND PAID OFF CREDITORS.

WITHIN TWO YEARS, SHE PAID

OFF NEARLY $100,000 IN

DEBT.

AS GOD BLESSED HER, SHE GAVE

MORE.

ALL THE WHILE, BECKY AND

JIMMY WROTE TO EACH OTHER

CONSTANTLY.

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

I BEGAN TO SEE AND

UNDERSTAND THE PEACE THAT I

HAD NEVER KNOWN OR NEVER

UNDERSTOOD.

WHEN HE CAME HOME, IT WAS

LIKE A DIFFERENT PERSON CAME

HOME.

IT WAS LIKE I GOT A BRAND

NEW HUSBAND, A BRAND NEW

FATHER TO ALL OF OUR KIDS.

HE WAS A CHANGED MAN.

AND HE WAS THE PICTURE OF

REPENTANCE.

HE'S A NEW MAN NOW, FROM

THE FIRST TIME I MET HIM.

AND HAVING PRAYER SUPPORT

LIKE "THE 700 CLUB," IT'S

AWESOME.

Reporter: TODAY THEY'RE

RUNNING A THRIVING BUSINESS

TOGETHER.

GOD HAS LITERALLY PULLED

US OUT OF THE PITS OF HELL

AND DISPAIR INTO A LIFE OF

ABUNDANCE AND OVERFLOW.

OBVIOUSLY, WE'RE SERVING

A MORE MIRACULOUS GOD THAN

I'VE EXPERIENCED.

I ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY TO

GIVE TO "THE 700 CLUB" AND

SEE WHAT GOD WILL DO.

Gordon: BECKY AND JIMMY

LEARNED THE SECRET.

HERE IS THE PROMISE, FROM

PROVINCE 19: "IF YOU HELP

THE POOR, YOU ARE LENDING TO

THE LORD, AND HE WILL REPAY

YOU."

I'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS.

LORD, WE JUST ASK FOR

BLESSING OVER THIS.

AND WE ASK FOR

MULTIPLICATION, THAT THERE

WOULD BE INCREASE, 30, 60,

100-FOLD.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, $75,000 ON A

CHALLENGE.

WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT

EXISTING CBN DONORS LIKE

GIVING SO MUCH, THEY WANT TO

HOW DRIEWM DREAMS FROM GOD

CAN INSPIRE IDEAS, CHANGE

LIVES, AND EVEN CHANGE

HISTORY.

Gordon: FROM EMPERORS,

PHARAOHS AND KINGS --

GOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN,

THROUGH THE AGES, SPEAKING

TO PEOPLE THROUGH DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

Gordon: TO SCIENTISTS,

MUSICIANS, AND EVEN

CHILDREN.

I HAVE HAD THIS DREAM

BEFORE.

IT HAPPENED A COUPLE OF

WEEKS BEFORE.

I'VE HAD THIS DREAM BEFORE.

Gordon: SEE THE DREAMS

THAT CHANGED HISTORY, AND

LEARN WHAT TO DO WHEN GOD

SPEAKS TO YOU.

Announcer: IN GORDON

ROBERTSON'S NEWEST D.V.D.

TEACHING, "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT," YOU'LL DISCOVER HOW

GOD USED DREAMS THROUGHOUT

THE BIBLE.

HOW TO KNOW IF A DREAM IS

FROM GOD.

WHAT TO DO WHEN GOD SPEAKS

TO YOU IN DREAMS.

AND HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE

PLANS GOD HAS FOR YOU.

Gordon: DREAMS CAN TELL

US WHAT GOD WANTS US TO DO.

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.

Terry: WE WANT YOU TO

HAVE THIS.

GOD IS ALWAYS TRYING TO

SPEAK TO HIS PEOPLE.

HE DOES IT IN MANY WAYS.

DREAMS IS ONE OF THE WAYS

THAT GOD SPEAKS TO US.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF IT IS

HIM?

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT HE

WANTS YOU TO DO?

IT'S ALL HERE IN "VISIONS OF

THE NIGHT."

CHALLENGE.

GIVE WILL BE MATCHED DOLLAR

FOR DOLLAR, SO YOUR GIVING

GOES TWICE AS FAR AND DOES

TWICE AS MUCH.

GORDON?

Gordon: TOM WEBBER

WORKED AT THE SAME COMPANY

FOR 34 YEARS.

SO WHEN HE FOUND OUT THE

BUSINESS WAS FOLDING, TOM

AND HIS WIFE PRAYED FOR A

MIRACLE.

AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THEY

GOT.

Reporter: BEFORE DAWN

IN CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA, TOM

WEBBER IS HARD AT WORK

CRAFTING HIS AWARD-WINNING

SWISS.

GOD HAS JUST BEEN SO GOOD

TO US.

34 YEARS MAKING CHEESE.

Reporter: BUT LAST YEAR

TOM RECEIVED SOME BAD NEWS,

THE COMPANY WAS CLOSING.

AS THE LEAD CHEESE-MAKING

KER AND PLANT MANAGER, HE

WAS STUNNED.

SOON HE AND EVERYONE ELSE

WOULD BE OUT OF WORK.

I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE

ROAD AND I HAD TO HANG UP.

I FELT LIKE A BABY.

BECAUSE YOU WORKED SO HARD

FOR SO MANY YEARS.

IT WAS OUT OF MY CONTROL.

Reporter: WHEN HE

SHARED THE NEWS WITH HIS

WIFE, TERRY, HER THOUGHTS

WENT IMMEDIATELY TO THE

HARD-WORKING FAMILIES WHO

WOULD FEEL THE FALLOUT FROM

THE PLANT CLOSING.

I KNOW THE ONE FELLOW,

HIS WIFE JUST HAD HEART

SURGERY.

JUST THE IDEA OF THEM GOING

WITHOUT INSURANCE WHEN THEY

HAD THESE MEDICAL BILLS.

Reporter: EVERYTHING IN

THE BUILDING WAS TAGGED TO

SELL ON THE AUCTION BLOCK.

AND EVERYONE, EXCEPT TOM,

WAS LAID OFF.

HE STAYED TO OVERSEE THE

SHUTDOWN.

THE PEOPLE'S LIVES THAT

ALL OF A SUDDEN STOPPED.

THEY HAD TO CHANGE AND MOVE

ON AND TRY TO PICK UP THE

PIECES.

IT SEEMED PRETTY HOPELESS.

Reporter: THE WEBBERS

PRAYED FOR A MIRACLE.

AND EVEN IN THE FACE OF

CERTAIN UNEMPLOYMENT, THEY

ALSO CONTINUED TO TITHE AND

GIVE TO MINISTRIES LIKE

CBN.

I THOUGHT THAT WAS THE

WORST THING WE COULD DO, IS

TO BACK OFF.

WHERE IS MY FAITH?

AND BELIEF IN GOD'S WORLD IF

I WOULD BACK OFF FROM MY

GIVING?

I INITIALLY WAS THINKING,

WHY WOULD GOD ALLOW THIS?

WE'VE BEEN TITHERS, AND

WE'VE BEEN FAITHFULLY

GIVING.

IT DAWNED ON ME, YOU DON'T

GIVE TO GET.

YOU GIVE BECAUSE IT IS IN

YOUR HEART TO GIVE AND TO

DONATE AND TO HELP OTHER

PEOPLE.

Reporter: AS THE DAYS

COUNTED DOWN, TOM EDGED

CLOSER TO THE UNEMPLOYMENT

LINE.

DURING THAT PROCESS, MY

WIFE WAS REALLY ADAMANT

ABOUT FEELING THAT GOD HAD

AN ANSWER.

GOD WAS NOT GOING TO SHUT

THIS PLANT DOWN.

I WOULD FEEL THE LORD SAY

TO ME THAT THERE WAS A BUYER

FOR PENN CHEESE.

Reporter: A WEEK LATER,

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT TOM

HEARD ON THE PHONE.

UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP, PENN

CHEESE WAS BACK IN

BUSINESS.

I DON'T THINK I EVER SAW

MY HUSBAND SO FULL OF JOY

AND EXPECTANCY.

HE CALLED PEOPLE WITH A BIG

SMILE ON HIS FACE TO SAY,

THERE IS A BUYER FOR THE

FACTORY, AND PAPERS ARE

SIGNED.

Reporter: THE NEW

OWNERS UPDATED THE PLANT AND

PUT EVERYBODY BACK TO WORK,

MAKING THEIR WORLD-FAMOUS

CHEESE.

THE WEBBERS GIVE ALL THE

CREDIT TO GOD.

GOD DID HONOR OUR

PRAYERS.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO

PUT IT IN WORDS BECAUSE GOD

CAME IN IN SUCH A HUGE WAY.

Gordon: GOD WANTS TO

COME IN IN A HUGE WAY.

TOM AND TERRY, HERE THEY

ARE, FAITHFUL GIVERS,

FAITHFUL TITHERS, FAITHFUL

TO THE LORD, OBEDIENT TO THE

COMMANDMENTS.

HERE WAS DOING EVERYTHING

RIGHT.

AND HERE IS TOM, HE IS ABOUT

TO LOSE NOT JUST HIS JOB,

BUT THE JOB AT EVERYONE AT

THE PLANT HAD IS THE MANAGER

FOR.

AND ALL OF THE WORK, 34

YEARS, HE IS LOOKING AT IT

ALL GO AWAY.

AND HE IS WONDERING WHY?

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?

WHY DID GOD ALLOW IT?

HE HAS GOT THAT WHY

QUESTION.

BUT INSTEAD OF STAYING IN

THAT WHY QUESTION, THEY

STARTED PRAYING.

AND THEY STARTED AGREEING

TOGETHER.

AND I LOVE WHAT JESUS SAYS

IN THE LORD'S PRAYER.

"GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY

BREAD."

IT'S A COMMUNITY PRAYER.

IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT OUR

FATHER, NOT ABOUT US

INDIVIDUALLY.

IT IS ABOUT US IN

COMMUNITY.

SO HE STARTED PRAYING FOR

THE WORKERS OF THE PLANT,

THAT THEY WOULD HAVE A JOB,

THAT EVERYTHING WOULD BE

RESTORED.

"GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY

BREAD."

AND HIS PRAYER WAS

ANSWERED.

AND GOD WILL DO THAT FOR

YOU, TOO.

SO STOP LOOKING AT IT FROM A

STANDPOINT OF WHAT CAN I GET

OUT OF IT, BUT START LOOKING

AT IT FROM THE STANDPOINT OF

WHERE IS MY HEART?

AM I LOVING GOD?

AM I LOVING THE PEOPLE

AROUND ME?

AND IF I'M DOING THAT, THEN

AUTOMATICALLY I WILL BE

GENEROUS.

I WANT TO LIVE IN THE WAY

GOD HAS ASKED ME TO LIVE.

AND THEN THE BLESSINGS

FLOW.

AND IT'S NOT JUST TO YOU.

IT'S TO EVERYONE AROUND

YOU.

IT'S THE "OUR FATHER" WHO IS

GIVING US "OUR BREAD."

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

THAT, IF YOU WANT TO BE A

PART OF BRINGING BLESSINGS

TO PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD,

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

YEAR.

HARD TO BELIEVE, ISN'T IT.

SOME ARE CONFUSING, MAYBE

EVEN A LITTLE CRAZY, BUT

DREAMS CAN ALSO BE THE WAY

THAT GOD IS SPEAKING TO

YOU.

WATCH THIS.

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?

TERRY?

Terry: AS A CBN

PARTNER, YOU'RE HELPING US

CHANGE LIVES ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

IN CHINA, TWO BOYS WHO WERE

BORN DEAF CAN NOW HEAR AND

SPEAK, AND IT'S ALL BECAUSE

OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

MING AND GUY ARE BROTHERS

AND THE BEST OF FRIENDS.

THEY UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER

WELL BECAUSE BOTH BOYS WERE

BORN DEAF.

THEIR PARENTS ARE DEAF,

TOO.

I WORRIED THAT MY SON

WOULD NOT HAVE ANY FRIENDS,

AND LATER WOULD NOT BE ABLE

TO FIND WORK.

JUST THE THOUGHT OF THAT

MADE ME

CRY.

Terry: A DOCTOR SAID

THEIR BOYS NEEDED HEARING

AIDS AND LANGUAGE TRAINING,

BUT THE FAMILY WAS EXTREMELY

POOR.

I COULD NOT PAY FOR ONE

HEARING AID, LET ALONE TWO.

SINCE WE ARE DEAF, NO ONE

WILL HIRE US.

Terry: SO FOR THE SAKE

OF THEIR SONS, THE COUPLE

STARTED BEGGING ON THE

STREETS.

PEOPLE POINTED AT US AND

LAUGHED AT US.

I WAS SO ASHAMED.

Terry: THEY ESTIMATED

IT WOULD TAKE AT LEAST 10

YEARS OF BEGGING TO COLLECT

ENOUGH MONEY FOR HEARING

AIDS.

THEN ONE DAY MR. ZUST SAW

SOMETHING THAT GAVE HIM

HOPE.

THERE WAS A SCHOOL WITH

ALL OF THE CHILDREN WEARING

HEARING AIDS.

I MET THE PRINCIPAL AND

TALKED TO HIM ABOUT OUR SONS.

I WAS SO TOUCHED BY THIS

COUPLE AND THEIR LOVE FOR

THE BOYS.

I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING TO

HELP.

Terry: THE PRINCIPAL

CALLED CBN.

WHILE THE COUPLE'S CONDITION

WAS TOO HARD TO BE TREATED,

THEY GAVE THE BOYS HEARING

AIDS.

I

WILL NEVER FORGET WHEN

OUR BOYS PUT ON THE HEARING

AIDS FOR THE FIRST TIME.

I AM SO HAPPY NOW.

THEY HAVE FRIENDS AND

THEY'LL BE ABLE TO GET JOBS

NOW WHEN THEY GROW UP, FOR

SURE.

Terry: AND WE ALSO

HELPED THE COUPLE START

THEIR OWN BARBER SHOP, SO

THEY DON'T HAVE TO BEG ON

THE STREETS ANYMORE.

I WILL WORK HARD TO

PROVIDE A GOOD LIFE FOR MY

SONS.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

YOUR HELP AND YOUR LOVING

HEART.

YOU HAVE COMPLETELY CHANGED

ALL OF OUR LIVES.

Terry: ISN'T IT AMAZING

TO KNOW THAT YOU AND I CAN

DO THAT, THAT WE CAN MAKE

THAT KIND OF A DIFFERENCE.

TWO HEARING AIDS AND THE

OPPORTUNITY TO START A SMALL

BUSINESS CHANGED THE LIVES

OF THIS FAMILY.

WHO KNOWS WHAT THOSE BOYS

WILL GROW UP TO BE.

THEY ARE NOW HEARING, THEIR

LANGUAGE IS DEVELOPING.

THE PARENTS HAVE OPPORTUNITY

FOR HOPE AND A FUTURE.

YOU DID THAT, "700 CLUB"

MEMBERS, AND THAT'S THE KIND

OF THING THAT YOU ARE DOING

ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

THAT KIND OF NEED EXISTS IN

MANY, MANY PEOPLE'S LIVES.

AND SO WE'RE ASKING YOU IF

YOU, IF YOU'RE NOT A "700

CLUB" MEMBER, PLEASE JOIN

WITH US.

GORDON JUST SHOWED YOU ALL

GOING TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

LOUISIANA.

THERE WERE TIMES I

COULDN'T MAKE ENDS MEET.

THE WATER WOULD GET CUT OFF,

AND I WOULD HAVE TO GO TO

THE NEIGHBOR'S TO USE THEIR

BATHTUB TO BATHE MY KIDS.

ONE NIGHT I OPENED THE

CABINET, AND I HAD A HALF

JAR OF PEANUT BUTTER, TWO

BOXES OF RAHMAN NOODLES, AND

THINKING, WHAT DO I FEED

THEM?

WHERE IS IT GOING TO COME

FROM?

Reporter: WHEN IT

LOOKED LIKE THERE WAS

NOWHERE TO TURN, AMY GOT A

KNOCK ON THE DOOR.

A NEIGHBOR GAVE HER A BOX OF

FOOD FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING" PARTNER "HEALING

CHURCH."

WHEN I PUT THAT FOOD INTO

THAT EMPTY CABINET AND I

CLOSED THE DOOR, I HAD TO

OPEN IT BACK UP JUST TO SEE

IT.

THERE IS FOOD IN MY

CABINET.

Reporter: "HEALING

PLACE" TEAMS UP WITH

"OPERATION BLESSING" TO

PROVIDE FOOD AND HOUSEHOLD

SUPPLIES TO FAMILIES WHO

NEED IT MOST.

THEY DISTRIBUTE HOT MEALS,

CLOTHING AND GROCERIES,

THROUGH THEIR DREAM CENTER,

WHICH IS LOCATED IN ONE OF

THE POOREST AREAS OF BATON

ROUGE.

WE FEEL LIKE WE CAN MEET

THEIR PHYSICAL NEEDS, AND

THAT GIVES US A PLATFORM TO

MEET THEIR SPIRITUAL NEEDS.

WE DON'T THINK WE COULD DO

THAT WITHOUT "OPERATION

BLESSING" AND THE TRUCKS AND

THE FOOD.

Reporter: AMY CONTINUED

TO PICK UP FOOD FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING" WHEN

HER FAMILY NEEDED IT.

AND HER FAMILY BECAME ACTIVE

IN THE CHURCH.

IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, I

FOUND GOD.

AND I HAVE A RELATIONSHIP

WITH HIM AND RELY ON HIM FOR

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: SHE

VOLUNTEERS WITH THE SINGLE

MOMS' MINISTRY AND HELPS

LEAD THE FOOD DISTRIBUTION

TEAM.

SHE SAYS SHE IS HONORED TO

HELP OTHER SINGLE MOMS IN

NEEDMENT.

TO BE ABLE TO BLESS THEM

WITH THE FOOD FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND

GIVE THEM A MEAL, AND SO

THEIR KIDS' BELLIES CAN GET

FULL, IT IS AN AMAZING

TURNAROUND.

THERE ARE SO MANY CHILDREN

THAT GO A DAY OR TWO WITHOUT

A MEAL.

AND TO KNOW THAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" SEES THAT NEED AND

THEY'RE REACHING OUT IN

EVERY SINGLE DIRECTION TO BE

ABLE TO FILL THAT NEED IS

JUST AMAZING.

Gordon: JOIN WITH US.

WE'RE NOT JUST REACHING OUT

HERE IN AMERICA.

WORLD, AND WE'RE DOING IT IN

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

BLESSING" TO HELP PEOPLE.

IT, JOIN WITH US.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A DREAM

THAT FELT LIKE A MESSAGE

FROM GOD?

IN OUR NEW D.V.D., "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT," GORDON

EXPLAINS WHAT TO DO WHEN

THAT HAPPENS AND HE SPEAKS

FROM HIS OWN EXPERIENCE.

Gordon: I HAD A DREAM.

AND IT WAS A NIGHTMARE KIND

OF DREAM.

I WAS WITH JESUS, AND I KNEW

IT WAS THE END OF THE

EARTH.

AND HERE I AM ON A LEDGE,

OVERLOOKING A VERY DARK

PIT.

AND THERE WERE ALL OF THESE

ASIAN FACES LINED UP IN A

ROW, MORE THAN I COULD

NUMBER.

AND THEY POINTED TO ME AND

SAID, IF YOU HAD COME, I

WOULD HAVE BELIEVED.

WELL, THAT DREAM, I WOKE UP

IN A COLD SWEAT.

AND I KNEW I COULDN'T

PRACTICE LAW ANYMORE.

Wendy: YEAH, I THINK I

WOULD HAVE WOKEN UP IN A

COLD SWEAT, TOO.

THAT WAS PRETTY AMAZING.

ISN'T IT AMAZING HOW GOD CAN

LITERALLY HOLD THE KEYS TO

OUR DESTINY IN DREAMS.

THANK GOODNESS THAT GORDON

HEEDED THE WARNING IN THAT

DREAM.

MAYBE GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU

IN THE SAME WAY, BUT YOU'RE

HAVING A LITTLE BIT OF

TROUBLE FIGURING IT ALL

OUT.

WE CAN HELP.

THAT'S WHY PUT TOGETHER

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT."

WHAT DO YOUR DREAMS MEAN?

IT'S ALL IN THIS FASCINATING

D.V.D.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

IT'S OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU CALL, 1-800-759-0700.

OUR SMILING COUNSELLORS ARE

WAITING RIGHT NOW TO TAKE

YOUR CALL.

SO PLEASE GO TO YOUR PHONES

RIGHT NOW.

GORDON?

Gordon: IT IS NORMAL

FOR SMALL BUSINESSES TO

STRUGGLE THROUGH THEIR FIRST

FEW YEARS.

THAT WASN'T THE CASE WITH

LONI'S COMPANY.

IN JUST ONE YEAR, HE DOUBLED

HIS INCOME.

HE SAYS IT IS ALL ABOUT

BECAUSE OF A DECISION HE

MADE EARLY IN HIS YEAR.

Reporter: WHEN LONI AND

TRACY WERE NEWLYWEDS, THEY

STARTED GOING TO CHURCH.

LONI WAS JUST STARTING

OUT IN THE OIL FIELD, AND I

WAS WORKING AS A

COSMETOLOGIST, AND FINANCES

WERE TIGHT.

BUT WHEN WE GOT OUR

PAYCHECKS, THAT IS THE FIRST

THING WE DID.

WE TOOK THE TITHE OUT.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

CONTINUED TO GIVE THROUGH

THE YEARS.

GOD JUST PROVIDED.

IT DIDN'T MATTER IF THE

TRUCK BROKE, THE TIRES WENT

BAD, WHATEVER, THE MONEY WAS

THERE.

Reporter: THEY ALSO HAD

SUCCESSFUL CAREERS.

EVENTUALLY LONI WANTED TO

START HIS OWN OIL

MAINTENANCE COMPANY, BUT HE

WOULD NEED $80,000 TO BUY

TOOLS.

ONE OF MY BROTHERS IS IN

THE BUSINESS, AND I CALLED

HIM AND SAID, DO YOU HAVE

ANY TOOLS?

I GO OVER THERE AND HE TOOLS

ME OUT WITH EVERYTHING I

NEED.

IT DIDN'T COST ME A DIME.

I CREDIT THAT TO GOD AND

TITHING.

Reporter: LONI'S

BUSINESS TOOK OFF, AND AS

THE FAMILY'S BUDGET IN

INCREASED, THEY STARTED

GIVING TO OTHER MINISTRIES.

I WAS, LIKE, THANK YOU,

GOD, THAT YOU ALLOWED ME TO

BE ABLE TO DO THAT.

Reporter: IN 2012, LONI

AND TRACY BECAME "700 CLUB"

PARTNERS.

I WAS WATCHING THE

PROGRAM ONE DAY AND WAS

SEEING ALL OF THE THINGS

THAT CBN IS INVOLVED IN,

FROM DIGGING WATER WELLS TO

FOOD TO EDUCATION TO

STARTING PEOPLE UP IN A

BUSINESS SO THAT THEY CAN

PROVIDE FOR THEIR FAMILY, SO

I WAS, LIKE, WO WOW, I KIND

OF WOULD LIKE TO BE A PART

OF THAT.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT

GIVING IS SEEING PEOPLE'S

NEEDS FULFILLED.

BEING A PART OF GOD'S HANDS

AND SHOWING LOVE.

CBN JUST SEEMS TO RADIATE

THAT TO ME.

Reporter: THAT SAME

YEAR LONI PICKED UP A NEW

CLIENT, AND THE COUPLE'S

INCOME HAS DOUBLED.

THEY SAY IT ALL GOES BACK TO

THEIR ORIGINAL DECISION TO

GIVE TO GOD.

YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE GOD.

AND HE IS GOING TO BE THERE

TO MEET THOSE NEEDS.

AND HE'LL JUST KEEP POURING

THE FINANCIAL BLESSINGS TO

US, AND WE'LL KEEP POURING

THEM BACK.

TO BE DEPENDENT ON GOD IS

A GOOD THING.

I CHALLENGE YOU TO TEST HIM,

CHECK HIM OUT, AND SEE IF HE

IS NOT FAITHFUL.

Gordon: HE'LL BE

FAITHFUL TO YOU.

LONI AND TRACY LEARNED

THAT.

AND THEY LEARNED IT VERY

PRACTICALLY.

AND THEY SAW GOD COME

THROUGH.

AND WHAT HE DID FOR THEM,

HE'LL DO FOR YOU IF YOU'RE

FAITHFUL IN WHAT YOU DO.

IF IT IS NOT SOME ON

AGAIN/OFF AGAIN THING.

IF YOU SAY I'M WITH GOD, I'M

GOING TO DO IT GOD'S WAY,

WHEN YOU DO IT THAT WAY,

THAT'S WHEN THE BLESSINGS

COME.

IF YOU WANT TO START THAT,

JUST GIVE US A CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

$20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A DAY,

AND YOU JOIN WITH TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THAT ARE

JUST LIKE LONI AND TRACY,

AND THEY SAY, WE LOVE GIVING

AND WE WANT TO BE GENEROUS.

SOME OF YOU CAN GIVE AT A

HIGH LEVEL.

THERE IS "700 CLUB" GOLD,

$40 A MONTH.

AND THEN THERE IS THE

THOUSAND CLUB, AND THAT

BREAKS OUT TO $84 A MONTH.

NOW IS THE TIME TO GIVE

BECAUSE WE'VE GOT A $75,000

CHALLENGE.

SO YOUR GIFT IS

AUTOMATICALLY DOUBLED FOR

THE NEXT SIX MINUTES AND 51

SECONDS.

SO CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: IN AFRICA

MALARIA CLAIMS THE LIFE OF

ONE CHILD EVERY MINUTE.

A LITTLE GIRL NAMED LUCKY

MIGHT HAVE BEEN ONE OF THOSE

STATISTICS WITHOUT TREATMENT

FROM A MEDICAL CLINIC SET UP

BY "OPERATION BLESSING."

Reporter: 4-YEAR-OLD

LUCY AND HER LITTLE SISTER

WERE SO SICK WITH MALARIA

THAT THEY HAD TO BE CARRIED

BY THEIR MOTHER INTO THE

"OPERATION BLESSING" MEDICAL

CLINIC NEAR THEIR HOME.

BUT GIRLS WERE SICK, BUT

LUCY'S CASE WAS FAR WORSE.

SHE HAD BEEN HAVING

FEVER.

LUCY WAS REALLY A ANEMIC.

Reporter: WITHOUT AN

IMMEDIATE TRANSFUSION, SHE

WOULD DIE.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING"

RUSHED LUCY AND HER SISTER

TO THE NEAREST HOSPITAL,

WHICH WAS TWO HOURS AWAY.

THERE WE ARRANGED FOR THE

GIRLS TO RECEIVE I.V.s

WITH MEDICINES, AND NEEDED

TRANSFUSIONS FOR LUCY.

WE HAVE THE MALARIA THAT

KILLS CHILDREN, ESPECIALLY

FOR CHILDREN UNDER FIVE.

Reporter: WE DROVE OUT

TO SEE WHERE SHE LIVED.

WE DISCOVERED THIS

BROKEN-DOWN CHANTEY.

THE ROOF LEAKS, AND THE

WALLS ARE OPEN TO WEATHER,

WIND, AND MOSQUITOS.

IT IS THE WORST HOUSE IN THE

ENTIRE COMMUNITY.

LUCY'S GRANDMOTHER IS A

WIDOW.

SHE WORKS LONG HOURS UNDER

THE HOT SUN MAKING

CHARCOAL.

I FEEL SO HELPLESS.

SOMETIMES I CAN'T SLEEP

BECAUSE I WORRY ALL OF THE

TIME.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" BROUGHT MATERIALS

AND PAID WORKMEN TO BUILD

LUCY AND HER GRANDMOTHER A

NEW HOUSE.

SOON THE WALLS WERE UP AND

THE ROOF WAS IN PLACE, AND

IT WAS TIME TO GET LUCY FROM

THE HOSPITAL.

WITH A NEW HOUSE AND A

HEALTHY GRANDDAUGHTER, THIS

FAMILY FEELS HOPEFUL ABOUT

THE FUTURE FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN YEARS.

I HAVE NEVER HAD SUCH A

NICE HOUSE LIKE THIS.

YOU HAVE SAVED OUR LIVES.

THANK YOU.

Terry: HOW CAN YOU NOT

LOVE THOSE SMILES?

HOW CAN YOU NOT FEEL SOME

SENSE OF JUST AWE THAT YOU

GOT TO HAVE A PART IN THAT

IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER?

YOU MADE IT POSSIBLE.

WE SAY THANK YOU TO ALL OF

YOU.

PLEASE HELP US TO CONTINUE

TO BRING THIS KIND OF CARE

AND THIS KIND OF ANSWER INTO

THE LIVES OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

TRULY IN NEED.

GOD BLESSES US WITH SO MUCH,

AND HE WANTS US TO ENJOY

THAT AND BE GRATEFUL FOR IT,

BUT HE ALSO WANTS US TO

SHARE THAT WITH PEOPLE WHO

ARE IN NEED.

GO TO YOUR PHONE AND SAY,

YES, I WANT TO BE PART OF

THE ANSWER.

AND YOU CAN DO THAT BY

JOINING "THE 700 CLUB" AT

WHATEVER LEVEL YOU WISH.

WE WANT YOU TO GO TO YOUR

PHONE NOW IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CHALLENGE AND SAY, I'LL BE A

PART OF THAT.

THE NUMBER IS

1-800-759-0700.

WHEN YOU CALL, JUST SAY, I

WOULD LIKE TO JOIN "700

CLUB," AND I WOULD LIKE TO

DO IT USING PLEDGE EXPRESS.

WHAT IS THAT?

IT IS ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES ALL

OF THE WORK.

IT IS REALLY QUITE

WONDERFUL.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE

STAMPS OR ENVELOPES ON

HAND.

THE BANK DOES IT ALL FOR

YOU.

IT SAVES PROCESSING COSTS ON

OUR END THAT ALLOWS US TO

PUT EVEN MORE OF YOUR GIFT

INTO THE LIVES OF LITTLE

FAMILIES LIKE YOU JUST SAW.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU

FOR USING PLEDGE EXPRESS IS

TO SEND YOU "POWER FOR LIFE"

TEACHINGS.

WE THINK THEY WILL BLESS

YOU.

GORDON?

Gordon: ALL OVER THE

WORLD, CBN PROVIDES FREE

MEDICAL CARE FOR CHILDREN IN

NEED, LIKE THIS BABY BOY IN

INDONESIA.

HE WOULD HAVE BEEN

DISFIGURED FOR LIFE WITHOUT

HELP FROM PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

Terry: SURIANI WAS

EXCITED THE DAY THAT HER SON

WAS BORN, UNTIL SHE SAW HIM

FOR THE FIRST TIME.

AFTER THE MIDWIFE PUT MY

CHILD ON MY CHEST, I SAW THE

CLEFT LIP.

I CRIED.

Terry: SURIANI KNEW

THAT HER SON'S CONDITION

COULD BE FIXED WITH A SIMPLE

OPERATION, BUT SHE ALSO KNEW

THEY COULD NEVER AFFORD IT.

SURIANI'S HUSBAND WORKS TWO

JOBS.

SOME DAYS HE WORKS AS A

MINER, THE OTHER DAYS AS A

FARMER.

TOGETHER, THE JOBS DIDN'T

PROVIDE ENOUGH FOR SURGERY.

WHEN MERSA WAS ABOUT SEVEN

MONTHS OLD, A VILLAGE

OFFICIAL TOLD THE COUPLE

THAT CBN WAS COMING TO THEIR

ISLAND TO DO FREE CLEFT LIP

SURGERIES.

AS SOON AS THE DOCTORS

ARRIVED, SHE REGISTERED HER

SON AND HE WAS TAKEN IN FOR

THE OPERATION.

TWO MONTHS LATER, WHEN WE

WENT TO CHECK ON MERSA, WE

FOUND THE LIP ALL HEALED UP

FROM SURGERY.

I'M VERY HAPPY AND

THANKFUL TO GOD, AND TO

THOSE WHO HAVE HELPED MY

SON.

THE DIFFERENCE IS REALLY

AMAZING.

THAT'S WHY I SAY A BIG THANK

YOU TO CBN FOR WHAT THEY DID

TO HELP US.

Gordon: A BEAUTIFUL

CHANGE, ALL MADE POSSIBLE

BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE YOU

CARED ENOUGH TO GIVE.

IF THAT'S YOU, GIVE US A

CALL, 1-800-759-0700.

WE'VE GOT A $75,000

CHALLENGE.

WE NEED TO STOP THE CLOCK

BECAUSE SOME CBN PARTNERS

WANT TO DOUBLE IT.

THEY WANT TO TAKE IT TO

$150,000.

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: AND TAKE IT TO

THE END OF THE HOUR.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS.

AND WE ASK FOR YOUR

PROVISION, THAT YOU WOULD

INCREASE, 30, 60, 100-FOLD.

AND FOR THOSE WATCHING,

MAKING DECISIONS, ENCOURAGE

THEM, BE WITH THEM, LET THEM

KNOW THAT YOU'RE THERE WITH

THEM.

YOU'RE EMMANUEL.

BE WITH US NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

$150,000 ON A CHALLENGE.

15 MINUTES, 50 SECONDS ON

THE CLOCK.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO

CALL US, 1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

IT IS GETTING EXCITING, AND

I JUST HAVE TO TELL YOU

ABOUT A CALL THAT JUST CAME

IN.

GARY FROM NEBRASKA -- I JUST

HAPPENED TO BE STANDING NEXT

TO ONE OF OUR COUNSELLORS,

STEVE, AND I GOT TO TALK TO

GARY FROM NEBRASKA.

HE JUST WENT TO THE GOLD

LEVEL.

HE WAS ALREADY A CBN

PARTNER, BUT HE SAID THIS

YEAR I'M GOING TO TAKE IT TO

THE NEXT LEVEL, TO "THE 700

CLUB" GOLD LEVEL.

HE IS EXCITED TO GET

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT," NOW

GOD IS SPEAKING TO US IN

DREAMS.

GARY, IT WAS GREAT TALKING

TO YOU.

PEOPLE ARE ALREADY TALKING

ABOUT OUR NEW D.V.D.,

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT," AND

ONE VIEWER HAD A CHANCE TO

WATCH IT RIGHT BEFORE SHE

HIT THE SLOPES.

HERE IS WHAT SHE HAD TO

SAY.

I EXPERIENCE SOME VERY

VIVID DREAMS SOMETIMES, AND

WAKE UP WITH DIFFERENT

EMOTIONS, WHETHER IT BE AN

EMOTION OF ELATION OR FEAR.

I DON'T KNOW QUITE WHAT IT

MEANS.

BUT I FEEL LIKE THERE IS

SOMETHING BEHIND THAT

DREAM.

GORDON'S D.V.D., "VISIONS OF

THE NIGHT," WAS A GREAT

EXPERIENCE FOR ME TO LOOK

CLOSELY WHAT PURPOSE IT MAY

HAVE IN OUR LIVES.

WILL IT BE A LIFE LESSON?

IS IT SOMETHING WE WILL GO

THROUGH AND ENDURE?

I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT HE

STARTED IT OUT WITH WHERE

THE BIBLICAL REFERENCES

WERE.

I THINK IT WAS EASY FOR

OTHER PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND.

IT HAS INSPIRED ME TO

ACTUALLY GO BACK IN THE

BIBLE AND LOOK FOR MORE

DREAM EVENTS, TO SEE HOW

THAT ALSO MAY RELATE TO

THINGS FOR MYSELF OR MY

CO-WORKERS OR MY FRIENDS MAY

BE GOING THROUGH.

I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO

SEE THESE EVENTS DO HAPPEN,

THAT THERE ARE

OPPORTUNITIES.

IF YOU'RE READY, HE WILL

SPEAK TO YOU.

Wendy: DOESN'T THAT

THOUGHT JUST MAKE YOU WANT

TO HIT THE SLOPES.

ANYWAY, IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD A

CHANCE TO SKI THIS YEAR,

MAYBE SOON.

THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH

WHAT I WANT TO TALK TO YOU

ABOUT.

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT," HOW

GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU IN

DREAMS.

THIS IS YOURS WHEN YOU CALL

AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO JOIN

"700 CLUB."

I JUST SPOKE TO GARY, AND HE

IS GOING UP TO THE GOLD

LEVEL.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A

CHALLENGE OUT TO MY FRIENDS

AND FAMILY AND EVERYBODY IN

WEST VIRGINIA.

I KNOW YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN

SUFFERING WITH THE WATER

CRISIS IN CHARLESTON.

YOU'RE IN OUR PRAYERS, AND

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

THERE ON THE SCENE,

PROVIDING WATER AND SHOWERS,

SO WE KNOW GOD IS THERE AT

WELL.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT."

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CHALLENGE.

$150,000, WITH JUST 13

MINUTES LEFT ON THE CLOCK.

THAT MEANS IF YOU GO TO YOUR

PHONES RIGHT NOW AND SAY

YES, EVER PLEDGE WILL BE

MATCHED DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.

PLEASE GO TO YOUR PHONES

NOW.

THANK YOU.

Gordon:

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS

PROVIDING FOOD, SHELTER, AND

EDUCATION FOR THOUSANDS OF

CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD,

LIKE FOR THIS YOUNG BOY IN

INDIA WHO WAS NEARLY

STARVING WHEN WE MET HIM.

Terry: CHIM MEA WAS

ONLY 4 YEARS OLD WHEN HIS

FATHER DIED.

THEN HIS MOTHER ABANDONED

HIM AT HIS GRANDMOTHER'S.

SOMETIMES WHEN THERE WAS

NO FOOD IN THE HOUSE, I

WOULD JUST WALK AROUND IN

THE VILLAGE ALONE.

Terry

:

A NEIGHBOR KNEW

THEY WERE BARELY GETTING BY,

SO HE TOLD THEM ABOUT A

PLACE THAT COULD HELP.

HE SAID THERE IS A ROOM

FOR POOR BOYS, AND IF HE

WANTED, HE COULD SEND ME

THERE.

SHE THOUGHT IT WAS THE BEST

THING FOR ME, SO I WENT TO

THE NEW HOME.

Terry: THIS CHILDREN'S

HOME IS SPONSORED BY

"ORPHAN'S PROMISE".

ALL OF THE BOYS WERE

ORPHANED OR ABANDONED.

I WAS HAPPY TO BE THERE.

Terry: CHIN MEA LOVES

HIS NEW HOME AND HIS NEW

CLOTHES.

AND HE IS FINALLY GETTING A

GOOD EDUCATION AS A

CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.

I FOUND OUT THAT I LIKE

TO STUDY.

Terry: HE TAKES HIS

CLASSES SERIOUSLY, AND HAS

BECOME THE TOP STUDENT IN

HIS CLASS.

THE TOPIC HE LOVES LEARNING

ABOUT THE MOST IS JESUS

CHRIST.

I BELIEVE HE IS THE ONE,

TRUE GOD.

NOW I LIKE READING THE BIBLE

AND PRAYING TO JESUS.

I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR

HELPING ALL OF US AT THE

HOME AND GIVING US A GOOD

LIFE.

I WILL PRAY FOR EVERY ONE OF

YOU.

Gordon: I WILL PRAY FOR

EVERY ONE OF YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: A FEW MONTHS AGO

TYPHOON HAIYAN SLAMMED INTO

SOUTHEAST ASIA.

THE CATEGORY 5 STORM WAS THE

DEADLIEST ON RECORD IN THE

PHILIPPINES.

AND CBN'S DISASTER RELIEF

TEAM WAS ON THE GROUND,

HELPING THE STORM SURVIVORS

REBUILD THEIR LIVES.

Reporter: THIS PILE OF

WOOD IS ALL THAT IS LEFT OF

NARSIST'S HOME.

LAST NOVEMBER, A TYPHOON

RIPPED THROUGH THE

PHILIPPINES, LEAVING DEATH

AND DESTRUCTION IN ITS

WAKE.

CBN PROVIDED FOOD AND WATER

FOR FAMILIES LIKE THIS.

AND THEY PROVIDED FREE CARE

FOR STORM SURVIVORS.

AS NARSIST'S BROTHER HELPED

HER TO REBUILD HER HOUSE,

THE CBN TEAM PROVIDED

COUNSELLING FOR HER AND HER

FAMILY AND OTHERS WHO LOST

FAMILY MEMBERS IN THE

TYPHOON.

THE COUNSELLOR ENCOURAGED

ME NOT TO LOSE HOPE IN GOD

AND TO KEEP PRAYING.

I FELT BETTER AFTER WE

PRAYED.

Reporter: AND AS SCHOOL

BEGAN AGAIN, WE SET UP A

SPECIAL SCREENING OF

"SUPERBOOK," TELLING THE

CHILDREN ABOUT THE FIRST

CHRISTMAS.

I LIKE HOW THE ANGLES

ANNOUNCED THANGELS

ANNOUNCED THE BIRTH OF

JESUS.

Reporter: MANY HAVE

PRAYED TO RECEIVE JESUS AS

THEIR SAVIOR.

I WAS REMINDED TO HAVE

FAITH IN GOD.

I THANK GOD HE SAVED OUR

LIVES, AND I AM THANKFUL FOR

PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO CARE FOR

US.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING US.

Terry: THAT STORM WAS A

TRAVESTY TO THE WHOLE

COUNTRY SIDE.

AND WE WANT TO SAY THANK

YOU.

AND WE HAVE STAYED ON THE

GROUND THERE.

WE'RE ALREADY IN PLACE

THERE.

AND YOU'VE ALLOWED THAT TO

HAPPEN.

WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO BRING

FOOD, WATER, ASSISTANCE TO

THEM, COUNSELLING, AND MOST

OF ALL, PRAYING WITH PEOPLE

WHO ARE IN DESPERATE

SITUATIONS.

PEOPLE WHO KNOW GOD, AND WHO

NEED A HAND TO BELIEVE AND

TO STAND IN FAITH IN THE

MIDST OF THAT SCENARIO.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING US TO

BE THERE.

THAT'S WHAT YOU DO AROUND

THE WORLD.

LET ME TELL YOU HOW YOU CAN

BE A PART OF THIS.

MANY OF YOU WATCH THIS

PROGRAM AND SEE THESE

STORIES, AND YOU HAVEN'T

GOTTEN UP AND GONE TO YOUR

PHONE.

WILL YOU DO THAT RIGHT NOW?

WHEN YOU SAY, YES, I WANT TO

BE A PART OF REACHING OUT TO

PEOPLE IN NEED, EVERYTHING

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, UP TO

$150,000.

YOU CAN JOIN "THE 700 CLUB"

TRULY, TRULY ARE MAKING A

DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE.

THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT.

GORDON?

Gordon: WELL, JUST

OUTSIDE CAIRO, A SINGLE

MOTHER RUNS A SMALL FOOD

STAND.

SHE WORKS HARD AND STILL

STRUGGLES TO FEED HER

CHILDREN.

SO WE DECIDED TO MAKE HER

JOB A LITTLE EASIER.

Reporter: MARKASA WORKS

HARD TO PROVIDE FOR HER

DAUGHTERS.

BUT FOR YEARS, THEY COULD

BARELY PUT FOOD ON THE

TABLE.

WE COULDN'T EVEN AFFORD

ANY MEAT.

MY GIRLS SOMETIMES SAID TO

ME, THE NEIGHBORS HAVE

CHICKEN.

WHY CAN'T WE HAVE CHICKEN?

Reporter: SO MARKASA

DECIDED TO OPEN A FOOD

STAND.

BUT I DIDN'T HAVE THE

MONEY FOR THE THINGS I

NEEDED.

SO I USED WHAT I COULD

AFFORD OR I ALREADY HAD.

Reporter: USING

HOUSEHOLD POTS AND PANS, SHE

COULD ONLY MAKE A LITTLE

FOOD AT THE TIME, SO SHE

EARNED VERY LITTLE, TOO.

WHEN WE HEARD ABOUT HOW HARD

SHE WAS WORKING, CBN BOUGHT

MARKASA ALL OF THE EQUIPMENT

SHE NEEDED TO SUCCEED.

THE NEW EQUIPMENT IS VERY

GOOD AND REALLY HELPS ME.

MY NEW THINGS HAVE GOOD

HANDLES SO I DON'T BURN

MYSELF.

IF I AM BUSY WITH ORDERS, MY

COSTUMERS WILL WAIT BECAUSE

THEY SAY MY FOOD IS THE

BEST.

THAT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD.

Reporter: MARKASA HAS

SEEN THAT GOD PROVIDES.

THANK YOU.

WE NEEDED YOUR HELP.

WE WILL NEVER FORGET THE

LOVE AND KINDNESS YOU HAVE

SHOWN US.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

THAT BLESSING.

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, CALL

AND JOIN WITH US.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A PART OF IT.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF

EVERYTHING CBN IS DOING

AROUND THE WORLD.

A PORTION OF EVERY GIFTER

GOEEVERY GIFT GOES INTO THE

WORK OF CBN INTERNATIONAL TO

PREACH THE GOSPEL AROUND THE

WORLD.

ANOTHER PORTION GOES INTO

"OPERATION BLESSING" TO HELP

PEOPLE.

SO IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT,

NOW IS THE TIME TO CALL US.

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT,

THANKS, GORDON.

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, JOSEPH

AND DANIEL OFTEN INTERPRETED

OTHER PEOPLE'S DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

THAT IS NOT JUST FOR PEOPLE

IN THE BIBLE, THOUGH.

YOU CAN INTERPRET YOUR OWN

DREAMS.

AND 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

GREEMSTUDYING 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 INTO

THE BOOK OF REVELATION, GOD

HAS BEEN SPEAKING TO PEOPLE

THROUGH DREAMS AND VISIONS.

IT STARTED ME ON THIS VERY,

VERY EXCITING JOURNEY OF

HEARING THE VOICE OF THE

LORD.

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: I KNOW GOD HAS

SPOKEN TO ME MANY TIMES IN

DREAMS, ABOUT WARNING ME OF

THINGS OR GIVING ME

DIRECTION.

IT IS FASCINATING, THE WAY

GOD SPEAKS TO YOU.

I'VE GOT THE PERFECT THING

FOR YOU RIGHT NOW, "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT," HOW GOD IS

SPEAKING TO US IN DREAMS.

THIS IS YOURS WHEN YOU CALL

US, 1-800-759-0700, OR LOG

ON TO CBN.COM.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

$150,000 CHALLENGE WITH JUST

THREE MINUTES AND 30 SECONDS

LEFT ON THE CLOCK, SO I'M

GOING TO THROW IT BACK OVER

TO GORDON.

Gordon: WHEN 9-YEAR-OLD

RUDY DEVELOPED A

LIFE-THREATENING HERNIA, HIS

PARENTS WERE TOLD HE NEEDED

SURGERY.

BUT WITH AN INCOME OF JUST

$75 A MONTH, THEY KNEW THEY

CAN NEVER AFFORD IT.

Reporter: UNTIL

RECENTLY, RUDY WAS AN ACTIVE

CHILD.

LIKE MANY 9-YEAR-OLDS,

SOCCER WAS A PASSION.

BUT HIS MOM WORRIED EVERY

TIME HE PLAYED.

THERE WAS A BIG LUMP ON

HIS STOMACH, WHICH

PUSHE

D

TO

HIS NAVAL.

Reporter: RUDY SUFFERED

FROM AN UMBILICAL HERNIA.

IT REALLY HURTS.

Reporter: RUDY'S

PARENTS TOOK THEIR SON TO

THE DOCTOR, BUT COULDN'T

AFFORD THE CORRECTIVE

SURGERY THAT WAS NEEDED.

I WENT HOME AND CRIED AND

WONDERED HOW WE COULD SAVE

ENOUGH TO GET AN OPERATION

FOR OUR SON.

Reporter: BOTH OF

RUDY'S PARENTS MAKE BRICKS

FOR A LIVING AT A COMPANY

NEAR THEIR HOME.

BUT THEIR COMBINED INCOME IS

ONLY $75 A MONTH.

A SHORT TIME LATER, CBN

PROVIDED RUDY WITH FREE

SURGERY TO REPAIR THE

DANGEROUS HERNIA.

A FEW WEEKS AFTER THAT, HE

WAS BACK PLAYING SOCCER AND

IN PERFECT HEALTH.

I AM HAPPY.

I CAN PRAY NOW.

NO MORE PAIN.

I WANT TO SAY THANKS TO

EVERYONE WHO HAVE HELPED

ME.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE PART OF HELPING

THAT, YOU'RE PART OF

BLESSING PEOPLE.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

BLESSING PEOPLE AROUND THE

WORLD.

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER,

WE'VE GOT A $150,000

CHALLENGE BEFORE US.

WE WANT TO GO WAY OVER THE

TOP ON THIS.

NOW IS THE TIME TO CALL US.

WE'RE COUNTERING DOWN

COUNTING DOWN TO THE LAST

SECONDS ON THIS.

WE'RE GOING TO COUNT

EVERYTHING ON THE PHONES

AGAINST THIS CHALLENGE.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, FARMING IS

BACK-BREAKING WORK, NO

MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE.

BUT FOR ONE FAMILY IN INDIA,

IT IS MORE DIFFICULT THAN

USUAL BECAUSE EVERY DAY THEY

HAD TO WALK FOR MILES JUST

TO GET WATER

.

Reporter: SHULA AND HER

HUSBAND ARE FARMERS IN A

SMALL VILLAGE IN WESTERN

INDIA.

THEY SPEND MOST OF

THEIR DAY

GETTING WATER FOR THEMSELVES

AND THEIR CATTLE.

WE HAVE TO WALK TO A

VILLAGE THAT IS TWO MILES

AWAY.

IT TAKES US SEVERAL HOURS.

WE STOP AT LEAST THREE TIMES

COMING BACK WITH THE WATER

SINCE THE POTS ARE SO

HEAVY.

Reporter: THE PASTOR

VISITED FROM TIME TO TIME TO

SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH THEM.

WHEN I FOUND OUT THEIR

VILLAGE DIDN'T HAVE A GOOD

SOURCE OF DRINKING WATER, I

CONTACTED CBN'S LIVE WATERS

TEAM.

SOON THEY

ARRIVED.

Reporter: THE WELL WAS

DEDICATED TO JESUS CHRIST.

MY HUSBAND AND I KNOW IT

WAS JESUS WHO GAVE US THIS

WELL.

WE ARE SO THANKFUL THAT HE

MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO

GET WATER IN OUR VILLAGE.

Reporter: SHULA AND HER

HUSBAND BECAME CHRISTIANS

AND WERE BAPTIZED.

MY HUSBAND AND I NOW GO

TO CHURCH AND PRAY

TOGETHER.

THE WELL OPENED OUR HEARTS

TO JESUS AND FILLED OUR

LIVES WITH JOY.

Terry: CALL NOW.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU SO

WE CAN CONTINUE TO TOUCH

LIVES LIKE THIS.

AND IT HAPPENS BECAUSE OF

YOUR GENEROSITY.

Gordon: WE'VE GOT JUST

12 SECONDS LEFT.

1-800-759-0700.

WE'RE GOING TO COUNT

EVERYTHING THAT IS ON THE

PHONES AGAINST THIS

WONDERFUL CHALLENGE.

IT HAS BEEN A GREAT

MORNING.

WE HAD A $150,000

CHALLENGE.

AND AGAINST THAT YOU GAVE

$194,000.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALMS 41:

"BLESSED IS HE WHO CONSIDERS

THE POOR.

THE LORD WILL DELIVER HIM IN

TIME OF TROUBLE."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN

TOMORROW.
