[APPLAUSE]

GORDAN: WELCOME TO "700

CLUB." ISLAMIC TERRORISTS HAVE

ALREADY ISSUED A DEADLY THREAT

AGAINST THE WINTER OLYMPICS IN

RUSSIA.

TERRY: THEY WARN THE GAMES

WILL FEATURE A SURPRISE FOR ALL

THE MUSLIM BLOODSHED AROUND THE

WORLD.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER: RUSSIAN LEADERS

HAVE TRANSFORMED SOCHI INTO A

POLICE STATE AND INSISTS THE

WINTER OLYMPICS GAME WILL BE

SAFE.

THE JOB OF THE WINTER

OLYMPICS IS TO INSURE THE

SAFETY.

WE WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES.

REPORTER: THE RUSSIAN

GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO BE MORE

COOPERATIVE AND AMERICAN

MILITARY OFFICIALS ARE STUDYING

PLANS FOR EVACUATING.

SOME ATHLETES HAVE SET UP THEIR

OWN PLANS.

U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT IS WARNING

PEOPLE TO BE CAUTIOUS.

ONE U.S. SENATOR WOULD NOT GO.

I WOULD NOT GO.

REPORTER: TERROR GROUP BEHIND

LAST MONTH'S ATTACKS IN

VULGAGORE ARE SCENE MAKING

EXPLOSIVES AND WARN OF A

SURPRISE PACKAGE FOR THOSE THAT

COME TO THE GAMES.

VLADIMIR AND OFFICIALS WILL

BE LUCKY IF THEY GET THROUGH IT

WITHOUT ANYTHING

HAPPENING.

REPORTER: RUSSIAN SECURITY

INTENSIFIED.

AREA IS THE SAME SPOT WHERE THE

TERRORIST PULLED OFF THE SAME

ATTACKS LAST MONTH.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

GORDAN: AMAZING THING IS THEY

WARNED BASED ON VIOLENCE BASED

ON VIOLENCE IN SYRIA AND

SOMALIA.

THOSE ARE TWO OF THE COUNTRIES

THEY SPECIFICALLY MENTION.

VIOLENCE IS COMING FROM OTHER

MUSLIMS.

OLYMPIC ATHLETES AND SPECTATORS

GOING TO THE GAMES HAD NOTHING

TO DO WITH IT.

WHAT IS THIS WAR ALL ABOUT?

I DON'T HAVE A CLUE.

IN OTHER NEWS, AMERICAN

MISSIONARY IMPRISONED IN NORTH

KOR

KOREA.

REPORTER: GORDAN, KENNETH BAY

APPEALED TO U.S. GOVERNMENT TO

SECURE HIS RELEASE.

A CHRISTIAN AND FORMER TOUR

GUIDE IN NORTH KOREA.

HE IS SERVING 15 YEARS HARD

LABOR FOR CRIMES AGAINST THE

STATE.

HE COMMITTED ANTIGOVERNMENT ACTS

AND APOLOGIZED FOR THEM.

HE COULD BE FREED IF NORTH KOREA

AND U.S. GOVERNMENTS WORK

TOGETHER.

THEY THINK THEY COACHED BAY.

AS AMERICA HONORS MARTIN LUTHER

KING JR., MANY CONSERVATIVES SAY

HIS BELIEF IN CHRISTIAN VALUES

HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN.

FLORIDA TODAY SAYS CONSERVATIVES

POINT TO IDEAS THEY SHARE LIKE

TRADITIONAL FAMILIES, HELPING

YOURSELF AND PATRIOTISM.

HE ALSO CALLED FOR HELPING THE

POOR AND AVOIDING WAR.

PRESIDENT REAGAN SIGNED MARTIN

LUTHER KING LAW INTO LAW IN

1983.

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS HAVE

RESERVATIONS OF PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S PLAN.

NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY SHOULD

NO LONGER STORE THE PHONE

RECORDS OF ORDINARY AMERICANS.

CALIFORNIA DEMOCRATIC SENATOR

DIANNE FEINSTEIN SAYS THAT COULD

BE A PROBLEM.

THE GOVERNMENT MAY NEED THE

INFORMATION QUICKLY TO FIGHT A

TERRORIST THREAT.

VERMONT SENATOR PATRICK LEAHY

SAYS THEY DON'T WANT THEM TO

REACH INTO THE PRIVATE LIFE.

GORDAN, TO THAT, WHAT A NOVEL

IDEA.

[LAUGHTER]

GORDAN: I THINK WE HAVE LOST

THIS.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT RISE OF

TERRORISM, WORLDWIDE.

NEED TO RESPOND INSTANTANEOUSLY.

NO POLITICIAN WANTS TO GIVE UP

THE ABILITY TO INSTANTANEOUSLY

LOOK AT EVERYONE IN A PARTICULAR

GEOGRAPHIC REGION AND FIND OUT

WHAT THEY WERE DOING FOR THE

PAST FIVE YEARS OF THEIR LIFE

AND GET ALL THE CONNECTIONS

TOGETHER IN ORDER TO STOP A

TERRORIST ATTACK.

BECAUSE OF THAT, WE ARE

VOLUNTARILY SURRENDERING OUR

LIBERTY IN A FALSE SEARCH FOR

SECURITY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER

THIS.

GORDAN: IN ONE MONTH, MARCIA

BRADLEY WENT FROM UNEMPLOYED TO

TEMP JOB TO A FULL TIME JOB WITH

A PROMOTION.

IT ALL STARTED WITH ONE PHONE

CALL.

THE SMALL TOWN OF CANNON

,

GEORGIA WAS HIT HARD BY THE

RECESSION.

HER AND HER HUSBAND WERE

ENCOURAGED BY WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

WE WATCHED HOW GOD WAS

BLESSING THE MINISTRY, ALSO HOW

HE WAS BLESSING OTHERS THAT

DON'T HAVE ANYTHING.

DURING THE TELETHON, OUR

SPIRITS CONNECTED.

SHE SAID WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO?

I LOOKED AT HER AND SAID CALL

THEM.

GIVE.

WE NEED TO GIVE.

I DON'T KNOW HOW WE CAN DO IT.

I DON'T KNOW HOW WE CAN MANAGE

IT, WE HAVE TO.

EDDY AND MARCIA GAVE $5.

SOON AFTER MARCIA APPLIED AT AN

EGG FARM.

SHE WAS HIRED.

EVERYDAY I WOULD GO IN, I

THANKED GOD FOR GIVING ME THIS

JOB.

BEING BEAD -- OBEDIENT TO HIM.

WITHIN A MONTH MARCIA GIVEN A

PERMANENT POSITION AND PROMOTED

TO QUALITY CONTROL.

I KNEW GOD HAS HIS FAVOR AND

ENCOURAGED ME TO DO MY PART

BECAUSE GOD HAD BEEN DOING HIS

PART.

AFTER HER PROMOTION, THEY

INCREASED GIVING TO "THE 700

CLUB" AT $40 A MONTH.

WE DON'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT

THAT I DON'T HAVE A NEED OF

ANYTHING.

I JUST THANK

GOD I

AM

ALLOWED TO

HELP SOMEONE

ELSE.

EDDY

AND MARCIA FEEL GOOD

ABOUT BEING PART OF CBN.

WE WATCHED ALL THE WORK AND

OUTREACH THAT "THE 700 CLUB"

DOES.

IT TOUCHED OUR HEARTS

TREMENDOUSLY.

I LOVE IT.

I WANT TO BE MORE A PART

OF IT.

IT

OVERWHELMS MY

HEART.

IT IS $.65 A DAY,

I MEAN, WE CAN

FIND THAT WAS ON THE GROUND OR

OUR COUCH IF WE DUG DEEP ENOUGH.

GORDAN: PROVERBS 3, 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.

EDDY AND MARCIA LEARNED AND

LIVED THAT.

MARCIA GOT FAVOR AND GOT

PROMOTIONS, ALL BECAUSE THEY

KEPT THE COMMANDMENTS IN THEIR

HEART.

THEY DID IT FROM THEIR HEART,

NOT A SENSE OF OBLIGATION.

THEY LOVE TO BE A PART OF WHAT

GOD IS DOING.

THAT IS WONDERFUL.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU DO

THE SAME THING FROM YOUR HEART.

THAT IS WHERE GOD'S CONCERN, IF

YOU KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS.

NOT LONG AGO LA TEE SHA WAS

LIVING ON UNEMPLOYMENT AND

OVERWHELMED BY BILLS.

SHE MADE A DECISION AND SUDDENLY

HER PHONE WAS RINGING WITH JOB

OFFERS.

SHE LOVES RAISING HER

FIVE-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER.

A FEW YEARS AGO SHE WAS RECENTLY

DIVORCED, LOST HER JOB AND

CARING FOR HER BABY.

NOT VERY HAPPY WITH MYSELF AT

THAT TIME AND VERY UNSURE.

IN THE BACK OF MY MIND, I KNEW

GOD WOULD PROVIDE.

I JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW.

I WAS LOOKING AT MY MESS AND

SAID GOD HOW CAN YOU HELP US

HERE AND NOW?

THIS IS TOO MUCH.

THIS IS TOO MUCH.

AS LATISHA SCRAPED BY IT

BECAME UNBEARABLE.

FOOD WAS SCARCE.

WE BECAME BEST FRIENDS WITH

PEANUT AND JELLY SANDWICHES.

I HAVE SEEN GOD WORK BEFORE.

WHY WOULD I STOP NOW?

WHETHER I AM GOING TO TITHE FROM

WAGES, OR UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS,

I AM GOING TO GIVE GOD WHAT I

SAID I WOULD GIVE HIM.

IT CAME FROM SOMETHING SHE

LEARNED IN CHURCH.

THEY TAUGHT A BASIC BIBLICAL

PRINCIPLE ABOUT SOWING.

LATISHA DECIDED TO TRUST GOD

AND GIVE MORE.

SHORTLY AFTER HER PHONE WOULD

RING.

EVERY TIME IT WAS A DIFFERENT

EMPLOYER SAYING ARE YOU

AVAILABLE FOR AN INTERVIEW.

SHE WAS OFFERED A JOB.

SOON SHE WAS READY FOR THE NEXT

STEP.

SHE INCREASED HER GIVING AGAIN.

ONE DAY HER SUPERVISOR CAME TO

HER.

SHE HANDS ME A FOLDED UP

PIECE OF PAPER.

I THOUGHT IT WAS ODD MY CURRENT

SUPERVISOR WAS SHOWING ME

ANOTHER JOB.

SHE SAID I BELIEVE IN YOU AND

HAVE ABUNDANT POTENTIAL TO DO

MUCH MORE THAN YOU ARE DOING.

LOOK AT THIS POSITION AND APPLY.

SHE APPLIED FOR THE JOB.

I WAS DRIVING MY DAUGHTER TO

SCHOOL.

IT WAS THE HR DIRECTOR.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF YOU CAN

START THIS POSITION IN TWO

WEEKS?

I HAD TO PULL OVER.

[LAUGHTER].

I WAS ON THE PHONE AND HE IS

LIKE ARE YOU THERE?

I AM LIKE YES, CAN YOU GIVE ME A

MINUTE, PLEASE.

I PUT THE PHONE ON MUTE AND

SHOUTED HALLELUJAH.

I WAS SO HAPPY.

WITH THE NEW JOB HER SALARY

DOUBLED.

TODAY SHE CONTINUES TO GIVE MORE

AND CREDITS ALL HER SUCCESS TO

GOD'S FAITHFULNESS.

I HAD TO DO THIS.

I HAD TO GET TO KNOW GOD AS MY

SOURCE.

LUKE 6:38, GIVE AND IT SHALL BE

GIVEN UNTO YOU IN GOOD MEASURE,

PRESSED DOWN, SHAKEN TOGETHER

AND RUNNING OVER.

WITH THE SAME MEASURE YOU MEET

SHALL BE MEASURED BACK TO YOU.

I AM SITTING HERE SAYING, GOD

HAS BEEN SO FAITHFUL.

I MEAN REALLY, I COULD HAVE BEEN

ANYWHERE ELSE.

IT COULD HAVE GONE ANOTHER WAY,

IT REALLY COULD HAVE.

GOD HAS BEEN SO FAITHFUL.

GORDAN: HE'LL BE FAITHFUL TO

YOU.

WHAT IS HE LOOKING FOR?

HE IS LOOKING FOR YOU TO KEEP

HIS COMMANDMENTS IN YOUR HEART.

SHE SAID I DIDN'T HAVE ANY OTHER

SOURCE.

I ONLY HAD GOD.

BIBLE TALKS ABOUT THAT, TOO,

DECEITFULNESS OF RICHES, IT LIES

AND SAYS YOU CAN TRUST IN IT.

ONLY ONE WE CAN TRUST IN IS GOD.

LATISHA PUT THE PRINCIPLES INTO

ACTION AND HAPPENED FOR HER.

HERE IS THE VERSE LUKE 6 WE CALL

IT THE LAW OF RECIPROCITY.

GIVE AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO

YOU.

SHE PUT THAT INTO MOTION.

SCRIPTURE SAYS YOU HAVE TO DO IT

FIRST, GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

SHE DID THAT.

SHE WON FAVOR IN THE EYES AND

GOD AND MAN.

SHE GOT GIVEN TO BECAUSE SHE

GAVE.

SHE PUT GOD FIRST, WHEN YOU DO

THAT, ALL THESE OTHER THINGS GET

ADDED UNTO YOU.

IF I CAN GET A DRUM ROLL, MAJOR

DONORS OF CBN SAY WE LOVE

GIVING.

WE WANT TO CHALLENGE OTHERS TO

GIVE IN THIS TELETHON.

THEY'LL MATCH YOUR GIFT DOLLAR

FOR DOLLAR UP TO $150,000.

[APPLAUSE] LET'S PRAY, LORD, WE

ASK A BLESSING OVER THIS.

WE JUST ASK FOR YOUR PEACE TO BE

ON US AND ON THE VIEWERS TODAY.

THAT YOU WOULD SPEAK TO THEM AND

ENCOURAGE THEM AND LORD, FOR

THOSE GOING THROUGH

GORDAN?

GORDAN: LIKE MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS, JOSEPH AND MELANIE

WERE HIT HARD BY THE RECESSION.

THEY HAD TO CHOOSE FROM BUYING

FOOD OR GAS TO GET TO WORK AT

ONE POINT.

JOSEPH AND MELANIE

HARDING

LOVE THE

FREEDOM OF RIDING THEIR

MOTORCYCLES ON THE OPEN ROAD.

IT REMINDS THEM OF THEIR

NEWFOUND FINANCIAL FREEDOM.

THEY LIVE IN HEARTLAND AFTER

MICHIGAN.

THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL

ENTREPRENEURS.

THEY KNOW THEIR SHARE OF HARD

TIMES.

MELANIE A COMPUTER DRAFTER AND

JOSEPH A COOK.

IT IS A STRUGGLE.

IT IS A DAY-TO-DAY.

FEAR.

YOU LAY AWAKE WONDERING WHERE

THAT NEXT $10 IS GOING TO COME

FROM SO YOU CAN HAVE GAS TO GET

TO WORK OR FOOD TO EAT.

IT IS BASIC NEEDS.

MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A

PRISONER.

MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE

NEVER GOING

TO GET

AHEAD.

WITH

A

STRUGGLING

ECONOMY,

MELANIE

SAYS THEY HAD TO MAKE

TOUGH DECISIONS.

DO HAVE I HAVE GAS IN MY CAR

OR STAY HOME SO I CAN GET TO

WORK TOMORROW.

TWO DAYS BEFORE MY PAYCHECK, I

AM GOING TO HAVE TO CHOOSE TO

PAY A LATE FEE OR HAVE MY

UTILITIES PAID OFF.

AFTER SUFFERING A BACK

INJURY, JOSEPH HAD TO LEAVE HIS

JOB.

WHILE RECUPERATING HE WATCHED

"THE 700 CLUB" EACH MORNING.

HE LEARNED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE

OF GIVING.

BE OBEDIENT, GIVE GOD WHAT IS

HIS.

IT BELONGS TO HIM ANY WAY.

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

HEARING THE STORIES, REAL PEOPLE

SHARING HOW THEIR LIVES WERE

CHANGED IN FINANCES AND

BUSINESSES CHANGED FROM TITHING.

HE GOT THAT MESSAGE FROM CBN.

MELANIE HAD GROWN UP IN

CHURCH AND KNEW ABOUT TITHING.

SHE HAD BEEN INCONSISTENT.

MELANIE LEFT HER JOB AND

DEVELOPED A HOME-BASED BUSINESS

INTO A

FULL

COMMITMENT.

WHEN JOSEPH GOT BACK ON HIS

FEET, HE STARTED SELLING ITEMS

ON EBAY.

A LOT OF TIMES I'LL BUY

SOMETHING FOR $4 OR $5 AND IT

WAS $300.

IT MULTIPLIED IN A THREE AND

FOUR YEAR PERIOD.

IT IS A TENTH WE GIVE AND KEEPS

GROWING.

MELANIE AND JOSEPH LOVE

GIVING TO CBN EVERY MONTH.

CBN FOLLOWS THE WORD WHEN I

WATCH THE SHOW, I JUST KNOW THAT

GOD IS THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING

CBN DOES.

I REALLY WANT TO SUPPORT AN

ORGANIZATION LIKE THAT.

JOSEPH NO LONGER FEELS LIKE A

PRISONER TO HIS FINANCES.

I FEEL PEACE.

EVER SINCE I HAVE BEEN TITHING,

I HAVE NEVER HAD TO WORRY ABOUT

BILLS.

ALWAYS MONEY TO PAY THE BILLS.

TITHING IS FOR US.

IT IS AN INVESTMENT.

IT OPENS A DOOR FOR US TO BE

BLESSED FINANCIALLY SO WE CAN

BLESS OTHERS.

GORDAN: HERE IS WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS MATTHEW 6: DON'T

WORRY ABOUT HAVING ENOUGH FOOD

OR DRINK OR CLOTHING.

YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER ALREADY

KNOWS YOUR NEEDS.

HE'LL GIVE YOU ALL YOU NEED FROM

DAY-TO-DAY IF YOU LIVE FOR HIM

RIGHT AND MARKED HER WHOLE LIFE.

MOTHER AFRAID AND FATHER WANTED

TO LET HIM DIE BECAUSE OF AN

UNUSUAL BIRTH DEFECT.

BY THE TIME HE TURNED TWO, A

LARGE TUMOR HAD GROWN ON THE

HIS MOTHER, OLIVIA WAS SHOCKED

AT HOW BIG IT HAD GOTTEN.

I THOUGHT MY BABY WOULD DIE

BECAUSE OF IT.

VILLAGERS THOUGHT THE BOY'S

CONDITION HAD BEEN CAUSED BY

WITCHCRAFT.

EVERY TIME FRANKLIN'S MOTHER

LEFT THE HOME, SHE WAS SHUNNED

BY OTHERS.

THE PEOPLE IN

THE

VILLAGE

SAID THERE WAS A CURSE

ON MY

FAMILY.

OTHERS

RAN AWAY WHEN THEY SAW ME

WITH THE BABY.

OLIVIA'S HUSBAND TOLD HIS

WIFE TO LET THE SON DIE.

WHEN SHE REFUSED, HER HUSBAND

ABANDONED HIM.

HE WENT AWAY AND

NEVER C

AME

BACK.

I HAD TO RAISE MY BABY ALONE.

OLIVIA LEARNED ABOUT

OPERATION BLESSING AND WENT TO

ASK FOR HELP.

AFTER TESTS, A DOCTOR DIAGNOSED

A CONDITION AND SCHEDULED FREE

SURGERY FOR FRANKLY.

I WAS SO HAPPY AFTER MY SON'S

OPERATION.

EVERYONE WAS SURPRISED TO SEE

THE GROWTH WAS GONE.

SOON FRANKLY HAD RECOVERED

COMPLETELY.
