The 700 Club - Jan. 22, 2014

When Rex and Rosa moved to beautiful New Mexico, they found themselves in a financial desert. Rex lost his job and money was running out fast. That’s when he remembered a principle that led to financial security in the past. Read Transcript

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

AMERICANS IN THE NORTHEAST

ARE DIGGING OUT TODAY AFTER

A FAST-MOVING STORM DUMPED

MORE THAN A FOOT OF SNOW IN

SOME AREAS AND CAUSED MAJOR

TRAVEL DELAYS ALONG THE EAST

COAST.

Terry: THE STORM WAS A

THOUSAND MILES LONG,

STRETCHING FROM KENTUCKY TO

NEW ENGLAND, AND MORE

FREEZING TEMPERATURES ARE ON

THE WAY.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THAT

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: SNOW SHOVELS

ARE SCRAPING, AND

SNOWBLOWERS HUMMING AS

MILLIONS OF AMERICANS START

DIGGING OUT.

IT IS REALLY BAD.

I HAD AN IDEA IT WAS

COMING, BUT I DEPUT DIDN'T

THINK IT WAS GOING TO BE

THIS MUCH.

Reporter: THE WIPTD

WINTER STORM THAT BLEW IN

FROM THE MIDWEST AND UP THE

EAST COAST LEFT VEHICLES

SPINNING OUT OF CONTROL,

TRACTOR TRAIMENTDZ

TRACTOR-TRAILERS IN A BIND

AND TURNED CARS INTO GIANT

SLEDS.

AND BLOWING SNOW QUADRUPLED

COMMUTE TIMES IN PLACES LIKE

NEW YORK.

IT IS TERRIBLE.

I ALMOST DID A 360.

Reporter: THE STORM IS

BLAMED FOR AT LEAST ONE

VEHICLE DEATH IN NEW

ENGLAND.

IN WASHINGTON, THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN, AND

COLLEGE STUDENTS HAD A

BALL.

THIS IS EASILY GOING TO

BE THE BIGGEST SNOWSTORM OF

THE SEASON, FOR CITIES LIKE

WASHINGTON, D.C., RICHMOND,

AND ALL THE WAY DOWN TO

VIRGINIA BEACH.

REALLY BAD OUTSIDE.

I'D LIKE TO GO HOME AND MAKE

A POT OF SOUP AND ENJOY THE

KIDS AND EVERYTHING AND TRY

TO BE SAFE.

Reporter: BEHIND THE

SNOW, MORE EXTREME WEATHER.

THE MID-ATLANTIC AND

NORTHEAST ARE BRACING FOR

FRIGID TEMPERATURES.

BOSTON, NEW YORK CITY, AND

EVEN WASHINGTON, D.C. WON'T

GET ABOVE FREEZING FOR

DAYS.

WE DON'T EXPECT IT WILL

BE A LONG WINTER SHUT-IN,

BUT JUST BE PREPARED AND

CHECK ON YOUR NEIGHBORS AND

ELDERLY AND YOUR RELATIVES,

TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE OKAY AS

WELL.

Reporter: MANY AIR

TRAVELLERS WILL BE GROUNDED

FOR ANOTHER DAY.

MORE THAN 1,000 FLIGHTS ARE

CANCELLED TODAY, FOLLOWING

MORE THAN 2,000

CANCELLATIONS YESTERDAY.

AND WHERE OFFICIALS ARE

STILL TRYING TO CLEAR SNOW,

THEY ARE URGING FOLKS TO

STAY HOME IF POSSIBLE.

IF IT IS NOT NECESSARY,

UH-UH.

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Gordon: WELL, THE COLD

WEATHER WON'T STOP THE

ANNUAL MARCH FOR LIFE

TODAY.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

JOHN?

Reporter: GORDON,

PRO-LIFE ADVOCATES WILL BE

TAKING PART IN THAT MARCH.

IT IS HELD IN THE NATION'S

CAPITAL EVERY

JANUARY 22nd.

THIS YEAR MARKS THE 41st

ANNIVERSARY OF ROE VS. WADE,

AND ESTIMATES 56 MILLION

BABIES HAVE BEEN ABORTED

SINCE THEN.

EACH YEAR THOUSANDS GATHER

TO MARCH AGAINST THE

ABORTION LAW THAT MADE IT

LEGAL IN 1973.

> MILITANT BUDDHISTS HAVE

ATTACKED CHRISTIANS IN SRI

LANKA IN RECENT DAYS.

THIS MOB ATTACKED TWO

CHRISTIAN PRAYER CENTERS IN

THE RESORT TOWN OF

PICATAWA.

THE MILITANTS SAID THE

CHRISTIAN CENTERS HAD BEEN

ORDERED CLOSED AND WERE

VIOLATING THE LAW BY STAYING

OPEN.

THE CHRISTIANS SAID THE

BUILDINGS WERE REGISTERED.

SIGNS IN WINDOWS WERE

SMASHED, BIBLES AND

DOCUMENTS DESTROYED.

> CANADA'S PRIME MINISTER

STEPHEN HARPER SAYS HIS

COUNTRY WILL STAND WITH

ISRAEL, QUOTE,"THROUGH FIRE

AND WATER."

HARPER TOOK THAT POSITION IN

A SPEECH TO THE ISRAELI.

Pam PARLIAMENT THIS

WEEK.

HE IS WRAPPING UP THIS

FOUR-DAY VISIT TO ISRAEL

TODAY.

HE HELD A PRESS CONFERENCE

WITH PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU, WHERE THEY

ANNOUNCED A STRATEGIC

PARTNERSHIP.

AND HARPER ALSO SAYS CANADA

SUPPORTS ISRAEL BECAUSE IT

IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

GORDON, WE KNOW AS

CHRISTIANS, THE RIGHT THING

FOR US TO DO IS PRAY FOR THE

PEACE OF JERUSALEM.

Gordon: THANKS, JOHN.

ONE OF THE THINGS OF PRIME

MINISTER POINTED OUT,

INCREASINGLY IN THE MIDDLE

EAST, YOU HAVE GOVERNMENTS

BLAMING ALL OF THE SOCIAL

ILLS IN THEIR COUNTRY ON THE

NATION OF ISRAEL.

AND ISRAEL HAS BECOME A

SCAPEGOAT FOR EVERYTHING

THAT IS GOING WRONG IN THEIR

ECONOMY, IN THEIR POLITICS,

IN THEIR CIVIL LIBERTIES.

HE RIGHTLY POINTED OUT

THAT'S NOT TRUE.

AND WE SHOULDN'T BUY INTO

THIS LIE.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER

THIS.

Announcer: THROUGHOUT

THE BIBLE --

I HAVE HAD A DREAM.

Announcer: THROUGHOUT

TIME...

IN MY SLEEP, THE CAUSE OF

GOD APPEARED.

Announcer: AND EVEN

TODAY...

IT HAPPENED A COUPLE OF

WEEKS AGO.

I HAD THIS DREAM BEFORE.

Announcer: GOD SPEAKS

TO US THROUGH DREAMS.

Gordon: WHAT DO YOUR

DREAMS MEAN?

IS GOD TRYING TO TELL YOU

SOMETHING?

Announcer: FIND OUT

WHAT TO DO WHEN GOD SPEAKS

TO YOU IN "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT."

Gordon: WELL, MILLIONS

OF AMERICANS ARE STILL OUT

OF WORK.

NOT LONG AGO REX JOHNSON WAS

ONE OF THEM.

HE AND HIS WIFE WERE LIVING

HAND TO MOUTH UNTIL REX GOT

A JOB OFFER WITHOUT EVEN

APPLYING FOR IT.

Reporter: REX AND ROSA

JOHNSON LOVE TAKING IN A

BEAUTIFUL SUNSET AT THEIR

HOME IN THE NEW MEXICO

DESERT.

SHORTLY AFTER THEY MOVED

HERE, THOUGH, REX LOST HIS

JOB WHEN HIS COMPANY

DOWNSIZED, AND THEY HAD TO

LIVE ON SAVINGS.

SOMETIMES IT IS HAND TO

MOUTH, BUT I'M DOING MY

BEST.

THAT'S ALL A MAN CAN DO.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

REX WAS HOME MORE OFTEN AND

STARTED WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" WITH ROSA, WHO HAD

BEEN A LONG-TIME VIEWER.

THE BIBLICAL TEACHINGS ON

THE SHOW REMINDED HIM OF THE

IMPORTANCE OF GIVING AND

TITHING FAITHFULLY,

SOMETHING THEY HADN'T DONE

FOR YEARS.

BUT AS I GOT INTERESTED

IN "THE 700 CLUB," I STARTED

REMEMBERING WHEN WE WERE

TITHING REGULARLY, AND WE

WERE DOING THESE THINGS.

AND IT WOULD SEEM LIKE WE

WOULD NEED SOME MONEY, AND

SOMEHOW IT WOULD HAPPEN.

I'D GET OVERTIME OR

SOMETHING UNEXPECTED WOULD

HAPPEN.

Reporter: WHEN ROSA

SUGGESTED THEY START GIVING

TO CBN, REX WAS WAY AHEAD OF

HER.

GOD MADE A PROMISE, AND

REALLY CBN BROUGHT THAT OUT

AND IT KEPT RESONATING IN MY

MIND.

THAT'S WHERE HE SAID, TRY

ME.

I SAID, YOU KNOW, I'M GOING

TO DO IT.

Reporter: SO THE

JOHNSONS BECAME CBN

PARTNERS.

SOON AFTER --

ONCE I MADE THAT

COMMITMENT, THE NEXT DAY I

GOT A PHONE CALL FOR A JOB I

DIDN'T APPLY FOR.

YES, I WAS SURPRISED.

IT IS MIRACULOUS.

Reporter: IN FACT, THE

JOB WAS BETTER THAN THE ONE

HE APPLIED FOR, AND THE

JOHNSONS BELIEVE IT IS

BECAUSE OF THEIR

FAITHFULNESS TO GIVE.

NOW THEY'RE EXCITED ABOUT

GIVING.

THEY SAY THERE HAVE BEEN

TIMES THEY COULDN'T WAIT TO

INCREASE THEIR PLEDGE TO

CBN.

I'M WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," AND GORDON IS

TALKING, AND I'M SITTING

THERE AND I'M GETTING

STIRRED IN MY HEART.

I THINK, I NEED TO GIVE A

LITTLE MORE MONEY.

Gordon: A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER SAYING I WANT TO BE

IN THE CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE.

I WAS WORKING OUT, AND

AFTER THAT, I DID MY

COOLDOWN AND INCREASED OUR

PLEDGE.

Reporter: REX AND ROSA

ARE CONVINCED THAT THROUGH

THEIR GIVING, GOD HAS

BLESSED THEM IN MORE WAYS

THAN THEY CAN COUNT.

I'M ABLE TO GIVE.

I'M ABLE TO SAVE.

I'M PAYING OUR BILLS.

AND NOW I WOULDN'T THINK OF

NOT GIVING TO GOD.

SO I'M FEELING GOOD.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE FROM MALACHI: "BRING

ALL OF THE TITHES INTO THE

STORE HOUSE, THAT THERE MAY

BE FOOD IN MY HOUSE, AND

PROVE ME NOW IN THIS, SAYS

THE LORD OF HOSTS, IF I WILL

NOT OPEN FOR YOU THE WINDOWS

OF HEAVEN AND POUR OUT A

BLESSING THAT THERE WILL NOT

BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE

IT."

THE SAME THING THAT HAPPENED

TO REX AND ROSA CAN HAPPEN

TO YOU IF YOU JUST PUT THE

SAME PRINCIPLE INTO

PRACTICE.

WHEN YOU DO THAT FAITHFULLY

AND CONSISTENTLY, THAT'S

WHEN THE BLESSINGS COME.

> IT IS PART OF YOUR OWN

DREAM, BE YOUR OWN BOSS.

GARY PARKS GOT THAT IDEA

SIMPLY BY DRIVING DOWN THE

STREET.

Reporter: GARY WORKED

AT SEVERAL PART-TIME JOBS,

INCLUDING WORKING AT A GAS

STATION, AND BUILDING

WELDERS.

EVEN WITH THE LONG HOURS HE

WORKED, HE STRUGGLED T TO

PAY THE BILLS.

SHARON REMEMBERS WHEN THEY

HAD TO BUY FOOD PAST ITS

EXPIRATION DATE AT THE

GROCERY STORE.

MY SON WOULD GET OUT HIS

CEREAL AND GET READY TO PUT

IT IN, AND THERE WOULD BE

BUGS IN THERE CRAWLING

AROUND AND HE WOULD FREAK

OUT.

WE HAD AN ELECTRIC BILL

FOR $25, AND WE WERE TRYING

TO FIGURE OUT WHERE WE WOULD

GET THE MONEY FOR THAT.

Reporter: SHARON

STARTED CLEANING HOUSES TO

BRING IN SOME EXTRA INCOME.

YOU DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO

DO TO PAY YOUR BILLS.

Reporter: SHARON ALSO

BEGAN TO PRAY AND ASKED GOD

TO FIX THEIR FINANCES.

ONE DAY SHE TURNED ON "700

CLUB."

HE STARTED TEACHING ON

THE LAW OF RESIPROCITY, AND

IT OPENED MY EYES ABOUT

TITHING AND GIVING AND

REAPING AND SOWING.

Reporter: SHE JOINED

"THE 700 CLUB" FROM HER

SMALL INCOME CLEANING

HOUSES.

THREE MONTHS LATER, SHE GOT

A CONTRACT MAKING $8,000 A

MONTH CLEANING COMMERCIAL

BUSINESSES.

AND GARY GOT A FULL-TIME JOB

WITH BENEFITS, WITH THE

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF

FORESTRY.

AND HE STARTED TITHING,

TOO.

I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE IT

A TRY AND SEE WHAT IT WOULD

DO FOR ME.

ROW

Reporter: THAT'S WHEN

GARY SAID GOD GAVE HIM A NEW

IDEA.

I SEEN A BRAND NEW HOUSE

AND THE CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS

WAS ALL OVER THE WAY.

THE LORD SAID, YOU NEED TO

MAKE A CONTAINMENT AREA AND

HAUL THAT AWAY.

IN 30 DAYS, I MADE MORE

MONEY THAN I DID ALL YEAR

LONG WITH THE STATE OF

FLORIDA FORESTRY SERVICE.

Reporter: GARY WENT TO

MAKING SIX FIGURES IN JUST

SIX MONTHS.

THERE WAS SO MUCH WORK, HIS

WIFE WENT TO WORK FOR HIS

COMPANY.

I WAS SO EXCITED FOR WHAT

HE WAS DOING IN OUR LIVES.

Reporter: GARY SOLD HIS

BUSINESS TWO MONTHS BEFORE

THE RECESSION HIT THE

HOUSING INDUSTRY.

I STARTED OUT WITH FIVE

DRUX TRUCKS, AND WHEN I

SOLD THE BUSINESS, I HAD 18

TRUCKS.

THE LORD TOLD ME TO SELL THE

BUSINESS.

Reporter: THE PARKS

ALSO TOLD THEIR SONS ABOUT

GIVING.

OUR PROFITS HAVE TRIPLED,

AND OUR BUSINESS IS GOING

UP.

AND EVERY YEAR IT SEEMS WE

HAVE MORE AND MORE WORK.

AND WE'VE NEVER STOPPED.

ALL IT TOOK WAS THAT ONE

CHANCE OF GIVING, AND LOOK

AT WHERE WE ARE AT NOW.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR ME

AND MY FAMILY, HE CAN DO FOR

EVERY OTHER FAMILY OUT

THERE.

I GUARANTEE GOD WILL

BLESS YOU.

JUST STEP OUT.

AND HE WILL MEET YOU.

WHEREVER YOU'RE AT, IF IT IS

EVEN A PENNY OR A DOLLAR, HE

WILL BLESS YOU.

Gordon: IF IT IS JUST A

PENNY OR A DOLLAR, HE WILL

BLESS YOU.

PALM 128 TECHNOLOG 128:

"HOW JOYFUL AND PROSPEROUS

YOU WILL BE."

THAT IS THE LORD'S BLESSING

FOR THOSE WHO FEAR HIM.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS.

SOME CBN PARTNERS SAY WE

LOVE GIVING TO CBN, AND WE

WANT TO CHALLENGE OTHERS TO

GIVE.

AND SO FOR THE NEXT 30

MINUTES, THEY'LL MATCH YOUR

GIVING, DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR,

$50,000.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS, AND WE ASK FOR

MULTIPLICATION, THAT YOU

WOULD INCREASE IT.

THAT YOU WOULD GIVE 30, 60,

100-FOLD INCREASE.

AND FOR THOSE WATCHING RIGHT

NOW, WE KNOW YOUR PROMISES

OVER THEM ARE TRUE, THAT YOU

WILL OPEN THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR OUT A

BLESSING THEY CANNOT

CONTAIN.

BE WITH THEM NOW.

ENCOURAGE THEM.

FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, $50,000 ON A

CHALLENGE.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

DIRECTIONS FOR YOUR FUTURE,

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 NEWEST D.V.D.

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.

GORDON?

Gordon: WHEN CHAD HAD

OPEN-HEART SURGERY, HE WAS

OUT OF WORK FOR FOUR

MONTHS.

EVEN WITHOUT CHAD'S INCOME,

HIS FAMILY PAID ALL OF THEIR

BILLS ON TIME AND THEY NEVER

RAN OUT OF MONEY.

HERE IS HOW THEY DID IT.

Reporter: CHAD AND KIM

BUSHY ARE A HARD-WORKING

COUPLE WHO LIVE OFF THEIR

FARM.

ALONG WITH THEIR CHICKENS,

LLAMAS, AND GOATS.

I BEGGED MY HUSBAND FOR A

GOAT.

HE SAID YOU CAN HAVE A GOAT

IF YOU DO SOMETHING WITH

IT.

AND SO WE ACTUALLY MADE LOTS

OF THINGS, CHEESE AND ICE

CREAM.

I LOVE THE OUTDOORS, SO I

JUST THANK GOD FOR GIVING ME

HIS NATURE TO WORK WITH.

Reporter: A FEW YEARS

EARLIER, CHAD DEVELOPED

HEART DISEASE AND HAD TO

HAVE OPEN-HEART SURGERY.

HE WAS UNABLE TO WORK FOR

FOUR MONTHS.

IN SPITE OF THE FINANCIAL

CHALLENGES, CHAD AND KIM

CONTINUED TO TITHE AND GIVE

TO CBN FROM THE MONEY THEY

MADE SELLING SOAP MADE FROM

GOAT MILK.

AND AS THEY GAVE, GOD

PROVIDED.

IT WOULD ALWAYS SEEM ANY

TIME WE WERE IN REAL NEED,

SOMEONE WOULD CALL AND SAY,

HEY, I NEED 10 BARS OF

SOAP.

Reporter: AND WHILE

CHAD WAS LAID UP FROM

SURGERY, FRIENDS FROM CHURCH

GOT TOGETHER AND PAID THEIR

BILLS AND BOUGHT THE FAMILY

GROCERIES.

THEY GAVE US $500 IN

GIFTS AND ANOTHER $500 IN

GROCERIES.

Reporter: WHEN THEY RAN

OUT OF HAY TO FEED LIAR

THEIR ANIMALS, A NEIGHBOR

CALLED AND ASKED CHAD IF

THEY NEEDED HAY?

I SAID, I CAN'T PAY YOU

FOR IT.

AND HE SAID, PAY ME WHEN YOU

GET THE MONEY.

I WAS LIKE, COME ON IN.

I HAD SO MUCH HAY, OUR

ENTIRE LOFT WAS FULL.

Reporter: THE BUSHYS

HAVE ADOPTED THREE CHILDREN,

AND THE OLDEST ONE IS IN

COLLEGE NOW.

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS WHY

THEY ADOPTED.

I LOVE HOW THEY SUPPORT

THE ORPHANS AND FEED THEM

AND CLOTHE THEM.

Reporter: IN THEIR

9-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER,

ELIZABETH, IS LEARNING TO

GIVE, TOO.

IN FACT, SHE LOVES CBN SO

MUCH, INSTEAD OF SAVING HER

MONEY FOR A PONY, SHE GAVE

HER $20 TO CBN.

I KEPT ON WATCHING CBN,

AND I FELT A BIG PAIN IN MY

HEART, THAT YOU NEED TO

GIVE.

I TALKED TO MY MOM AND DAD

ABOUT IT, AND THEY SAID YOU

CAN GIVE.

SHE WROTE OUT THE CHECK AND

I SENT IT IN THE MAIL.

I ACTUALLY STARTED A GIVING

JOR FOR CBN.

IT BLESSES ME VERY MUCH

TO SEE OUR DAUGHTER GIVING

AND TO UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS

IMPORTANT, TO UNDERSTAND THE

PRINCIPLES OF OBEYING GOD'S

WORD.

Reporter: THE BUSHYS

BELIEVE YOU CANNOT OUTGIVE

GOD.

THAT'S WHY THEY RECENTLY

INCREASED THEIR GIVING TO

CBN.

ONLY GOD KNOWS HOW MANY

APPLES YOU CAN GET OUT OF

ONE SEED.

BUT IF YOU GIVE TO GOD, AND

SOW INTO CBN, YOU'LL NEVER

SEE THE END OF THE

BLESSING.

I TALK TO OTHER KIDS AND

SAY YOU SHOULD GIVE, BECAUSE

IF YOU GIVE IT WILL BLESS

GOD.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE FROM PROVERBS: "IF

YOU HELP THE POOR, YOU ARE

LENDING TO THE LORD AND HE

WILL REPAY YOU."

AND THE BUSHYS FOUND THAT

OUT.

THEY SAID, WE'RE GOING

THROUGH A TOUGH TIME, AND

GOD PROVIDED FOR THEM

BECAUSE HE HONORS HIS WORD.

HE WATCHES OVER IT TO

PERFORM IT.

IF YOU WANT THAT HAPPENING

IN YOUR LIFE, DO THE SAME

THING.

WHEN YOU OBSERVE THE

PRINCIPLES, WHEN YOU SAY I'M

GOING TO DO LIFE GOD'S WAY,

THAT'S WHEN THE BLESSINGS

COME.

WE'VE GOT A $50,000

CHALLENGE.

THAT MEANS YOUR GIFT IS

MATCHED DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR UP

TO $50,000.

SO GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING LAST

NIGHT, YOU PROBABLY HAD

THREE OR FOUR DREAMS, EVEN

IF YOU DON'T REMEMBER THEM.

THE MOST COMMON DREAMS ARE

ABOUT FALLING, FLYING, OR

EVEN SHOWING UP FOR WORK IN

YOUR PAJAMAS.

SO WHAT DO YOUR DREAMS

MEAN?

WE'LL HELP YOU FIGURE IT OUT

IN GORDON'S NEW D.V.D.,

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT."

WATCH THIS.

Gordon: FROM EMPERORS,

PHARAOHS, AND KINGS --

GOD HAS BEEN ALWAYS,

THROUGH THE AGES, SPEAKING

TO PEOPLE THROUGH DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

Gordon: TO SCIENTISTS,

MUSICIANS, AND EVEN

CHILDREN.

I 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 HAD K HE CAN PROVIDE.

Announcer: "VISIONS OF

THE NIGHT," AVAILABLE NOW.

Wendy: IF YOU WERE

DREAMING ABOUT SNOW LAST

NIGHT AND YOU LIVE IN

VIRGINIA BEACH, IT WASN'T A

DREAM.

WE WOKE UP TO A BEAUTIFUL

BLANKET OF SNOW AND WE HAD A

BLIZZARD LAST NIGHT.

BUT WE WANT YOU TO

UNDERSTAND THE DREAMS THAT

GOD IS GIVING YOU IN THE

NIGHT.

THIS IS GOING TO HELP YOU,

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT," HOW

GOD SPEAKS TO YOU IN YOUR

DREAMS.

YOU CAN HAVE IT WHEN YOU GO

TO YOUR PHONES AND SAY, YES,

I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

1-800-759-0700 IS THE NUMBER

TO CALL, OR YOU CAN LOG ON

TO CBN.COM.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A CBN

PARTNER, WHICH IS $20 A

MONTH, JUST 65 CENTS A DAY,

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU.

BUT IT IS A BRAND NEW YEAR,

AND I WOULD LIKE TO

CHALLENGE YOU TO TAKE IT UP

TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

$40 A MONTH IS THE "700

CLUB" GOLD LEVEL.

WE'RE GOING TO BLESS YOU

BACK BY GIVING YOU THREE

D.V.D.S.

IF YOU CAN DO MORE, $84 A

MONTH, OUR THOUSAND CLUB

LEVEL, WE'RE GOING TO SEND

YOU FIVE D.V.D.s.

THE NUMBER IS

1-800-759-0700, AND JUST SAY

YES.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT

$50,000 CHALLENGE WITH 21

MINUTES AND 38 SECONDS LEFT

ON THE CLOCK.

I'M GOING TO THROW IT BACK

TO GORDON.

Gordon: FOR A FARMER, A

DROUGHT COULD MEAN CROP

FAILURE.

JENNIFER'S FARM EXPERIENCED

BOTH IN THE SAME SUMMER, AND

SHE STILL MANAGED TO TURN A

PROFIT.

HERE IS HOW SHE DID IT.

Terry: WHEN JENNIFER

INHERITED THE FAMILY FARM,

IT CAME WITH AN 80-YEAR

HISTORY OF ABUNDANCE.

EVEN WHEN IT WAS TOO WET

OR A DROUGHT, I REMEMBER

HEARING THE STORY REPEATED

OVER AND OVER.

Terry: BUT DURING AN

ESPECIALLY SEVERE DROUGHT IN

2012, FARM MANAGER DAVID

KNIGHT CALLED WITH BAD

NEWS.

UNLESS WE GOT A RAIN

BEFORE THE POLLENATION, WE

WERE GOING TO HAVE SOME

PRETTY DEVASTATING RESULTS.

I WAS SHOCKED.

80 YEARS, AND THERE HAS

NEVER, NEVER BEEN A CROP

FAILURE.

Terry: SO JENNIFER

PRAYED AND THE CLOUDS

OPENED.

IT WAS HAILING, AND

THAT'S A FARMER'S WORST

NIGHTMARE.

IF THERE IS DROUGHT AND

HAIL, OBVIOUSLY THERE WILL

NOT BE A PROFIT AFTER THE

HAIL.

Terry: SHE PRAYED

AGAIN.

I WAS SAYING, OH, LORD,

PLEASE HELP ME, HELP MY

LAND.

ANY PROFITS YOU GIVE, I WILL

GIVE IT ALL TO "THE 700

CLUB."

I DID SPELL IT OUT

SPECIFICALLY, "THE 700

CLUB."

Terry: THE FARMLAND WAS

A FEW HOURS FROM HOME.

SO FOR MONTHS SHE HAD NO

IDEA HOW THE CROPS WERE

DOING.

WHEN DAVE FINALLY CALLED,

SHE BRACED HERSELF FOR THE

WORST.

YOU HAD A SUCCESSFUL

CROP.

AND I'M, LIKE, SAY THAT

AGAIN?

I DON'T BELIEVE THIS.

AT THAT POINT I KNEW I WAS

GOING TO BE ABLE TO WRITE A

BIG CHECK TO CBN.

Terry: IT TURNED OUT

THE HAILSTORM STOPPED ABOUT

FIVE MILES SHORT OF

JENNIFER'S FARM.

AND EVEN THOUGH IT BARELY

SPRINKLED THAT SPRING AND

SUMMER, THEY HARVESTED A

BUMPER CROP OF CORN.

IT IS REMARKABLE.

IT'S A MIRACLE.

WHEN DAVE SENT THE CHECK

IN DECEMBER, IT WAS OVER

$20,000.

Terry: JUST DAYS BEFORE

JENNIFER WROTE THE CHECK, A

PIECE OF MEDICAL EQUIPMENT

BROKE DOWN AT A CBN MEDICAL

CLINIC IN UKRAINE.

JENNIFER'S DONATION MORE

THAN COVERED THE COST OF

REPLACING IT WITH A BETTER

PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.

SO I WROTE JENNIFER A LETTER

OF THANKS.

"DEAR JENNIFER, YOU HAVE

THRILLED THE HEARTS OF OUR

TEAM AT THE KIEV MEDICAL

CLINIC.

YOUR GIFT WILL TOUCH THE

LIVES"...

"OF THOUSANDS OF POOR

FAMILIES WHO ARE TREATED

THERE FREE OF CHARGE."

A MAJOR NEED WAS FILLED IN

UKRAINE FROM A CROP FAILURE

THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

Terry: TODAY SHE IS

PASSING ON STORIES ABOUT THE

FAMILY FARM TO HER

GRANDCHILDREN.

NOW I CAN SAY IT AND MEAN

IT, FO FOR 80 YEARS THE

CROPS HAVE NEVER FAILED.

THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR

WE'RE TO GIVE GOD OUR FIRST

FRUITS.

EVEN WHEN MONEY IS TIGHT,

THE FIRST CHECK IS TO THE

KINGDOM.

SMALL OR BIG, GOD CAN

MULTIPLY IT.

HE IS GOD, OUR PROVIDER.

AND I AM EAGER TO WRITE THE

FIRST CHECK TO HIM TO SAY

THANK YOU.

Gordon: WRITING THE

FIRST CHECK.

THAT GETS YOU INTO PROVERBS

3, AND THIS WONDERFUL

PROMISE: "HONOR THE LORD

WITH YOUR POSSESSIONS AND

WITH THE FIRST FRUITS OF ALL

OF YOUR INCREASE, SO YOUR

BARNS WILL BE FILLED WITH

PLENTY AND YOUR VATS WILL

OVERFLOW WITH NEW WINE."

JENNIFER DID THAT.

SHE HONORED THE LORD WITH

THE FIRST FRUITS, AND FROM

THAT SHE WALKED INTO THAT

WONDERFUL BLESSING.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.

IF YOU JUST DO THE SAME

THING.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO START

DOING THAT, GIVE US A CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

IT'S ONLY $20 A MONTH, 65

CENTS A DAY.

SOME OF YOU CAN JOIN AT A

HIGHER LEVEL.

WE'VE GOT "700 CLUB" GOLD

FOR YOU AT $40 A MONTH.

AND THEN THE THOUSAND CLUB

IS $1,000 A YEAR, AND THAT

BREAKS OUT TO $84 A MONTH.

WHEN YOU CALL, ASK FOR

PLEDGE EXPRESS, AND THAT'S

ELECTRONIC MONTHLY GIVING,

WHERE THE BANK DOES ALL OF

THE WORK.

THERE ARE NO CHECKS TO WRITE

AND NOTHING TO MAIL IN.

YOU KNOW IT IS COMING IN ALL

AUTOMATICALLY EVERY SINGLE

MONTH.

AND WE CAN SEND AS OUR GIFT

TO YOU "POWER FOR LIFE,"

MONTHLY GIVING C.D.s.

ASK FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS WHEN

YOU CALL OR WHEN YOU GIVE ON

THE INTERNET, YOU

AUTOMATICALLY SIGN UP FOR

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

Terry: IF YOU'RE A CBN

PARTNER, YOU'RE HELPING US

ANSWER THE PRAYERS OF PEOPLE

YOU HAVE NEVER EVEN MET.

IN CHINA, A WIDOW AND HER

SON LIVED IN AN OLD HOUSE

WITH A LEAKY ROOF.

HER SON WAS ALWAYS SICK, SO

SHE PRAYED TO GOD FOR HELP,

AND CBN DELIVERED THE ANSWER

TO THOSE PRAYERS.

AFTER HER HUSBAND DIED OF

CANCER, MRS. ANH WAS LEFT TO

RAISE HER SON ALL ALONE.

SHE JUST WANTED HIM TO BE

HEALTHY AND LIVE IN A DECENT

HOME.

BUT ALL THEY HAD WAS A VERY

OLD HOUSE, AND YAN WAS

ALWAYS SICK.

IN THE WINTER THE RAIN

LEAKED IN THE ROOF AND OUR

BLANKETS AND PAJAMAS ALWAYS

GOT WET.

MY HANDS AND FEET FROZE AND

TURNED PURPLE.

Terry: IT MADE IT HARD

FOR YAN TO SLEEP.

HE WOKE UP SEVERAL TIMES

A NIGHT AND HE HAD FEVERS A

LOT.

I WAS WORRIED BECAUSE HE WAS

SO FAINT.

HE NEEDED REST SO HE WOULD

GROW.

I JUST HELD HIM AND TRIED TO

COMFORT HIM.

Terry: HIS PARENTS HAD

TALKED ABOUT BUILDING A NEW

HOME BEFORE MR. ANH DIED,

BUT NOW ON ONE INCOME,

MRS. ANH COULD BARELY AFFORD

REPAIRS.

I AM ILLITERATE, AND SO

FINDING WORK IS HARD.

I WAS LIVING ON $31 A YEAR

FROM OUR CORN.

I DIDN'T WANT MY MOM TO

CRY AND HAVE TO WORK SO HARD

ANYMORE.

I WANTED THE LEAKING AND THE

COLD TO JUST STOP.

Terry: MRS. ANH IS A

CHRISTIAN, SO SHE PRAYED TO

GOD FOR HELP.

THEN CBN SHOWED UP.

SOMEONE FROM CBN CAME TO

OUR VILLAGE AND PROMISED TO

BUILD A NEW HOUSE FOR MY SON

AND ME.

I JUMPED AS HIGH AS I

COULD AND SHOUTED FOR JOY.

Terry: SOON THE ANH'S

NEW TWO STORY HOME WAS READY

FOR THEM TO MOVE IN, FULLY

EQUIPPED WITH A HEATER.

NOW I CAN SLEEP THROUGH

THE NIGHT.

NOW THAT YAN CAN SLEEP,

HE HAS ENERGY DURING THE DAY

AND IS GROWING STRONG.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR HELPING

US WHEN WE LOST EVERYTHING.

THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO

THE LORD AND BEING HIS HANDS

AND FEET.

Terry: CAN YOU IMAGINE

HAVING NO HEAT IN YOUR HOME

IN THE WINTER?

TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO

PONDER THAT POSSIBILITY.

AND THEN HAVE COLD, MELTING

SNOW FALLING ON YOU, YOUR

BLANKET, YOUR PAJAMAS ARE

WET.

THE MATTRESS IS A MESS.

AND TRYING TO GET SLEEP.

THIS LITTLE BOY HAD SUCH

CONCERN FOR HIS MOM.

HE ALREADY LOST HIS DAD.

AND RIGHT IN THE MIDST OF

THAT HOPELESSNESS AND NEED,

YOU SHOWED UP, "700 CLUB"

MEMBERS.

AND HIS MOTHER, AND MAKING A

DIFFERENCE IN THEIR LIFE.

GORDON?

Gordon: PERRY COUNTY,

PENNSYLVANIA, HAS BEEN HIT

HARD BY THE RECESSION.

THAT'S WHY "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS THERE.

WORKING WITH LOCAL GROUPS TO

FEED FAMILIES WHO NEED A

LITTLE EXTRA HELP, LIKE

GEORGE AND BECCA CLAGE.

Reporter: AS GEORGE

SERVES OVERSEAS WITH THE

U.S. ARMY, HE KNOWS BACK

HOME HIS WIFE, BECCA, AND

THEIR THREE CHILDREN, ARE

TAKEN CARE OF THANKS TO THE

STEADY INCOME THE MILITARY

PROVIDES.

THE SEPARATION, THOUGH, IS

DIFFICULT.

IT IS HARD WITH MY KIDS

BEING YOUNGER.

THEY DON'T TRULY UNDERSTAND

WHERE HE IS GOING AND WHAT

IS GOING ON.

GOD HAS A PURPOSE IN

EVERYTHING.

WE PREPARED IN EVERY WAY

THAT WE COULD.

WE'RE TRUSTING THAT GOD IS

GOING TO HELP US PULL

THROUGH.

Reporter: BECCA

ENCOURAGES THE KIDS TO SEND

SCRAP BOOKS TO THEIR DAD.

AND AFTER ENDURING A

DIFFICULT PERIOD A FEW YEARS

AGO, FOLLOWING A LOSS OF HIS

SALES JOB DUE TO THE

RECESSION.

THERE WAS NO, IN A FEW

WEEKS OR WE'LL GIVE YOU A

MONTH.

IT WAS LIKE HE WENT TO WORK

ONE DAY AND THAT WAS IT.

WE DIDN'T HAVE A FAIR

WARNING.

Reporter: THE FAMILY

LIVES IN PERRY COUNTY,

PENNSYLVANIA, AN AREA THAT

HAS BEEN ESPECIALLY HARD HIT

BY THE RECESSION.

BECCA WORKS PART-TIME AS A

HAIRDRESSER, BUT THAT INCOME

WASN'T ENOUGH AFTER GEORGE

LOST HIS JOB.

THEY TURNED TO BREAD OF

LIFE, AN OUTREACH.

YOUR FIRST THOUGHT IS

I'LL GO WITHOUT BEFORE I LET

MY KIDS GO WITHOUT.

KNOWING THEY WERE TAKEN CARE

OF AND THEY HAD THE THINGS

THEY NEEDED MAKES YOU SLEEP

AT NIGHT.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" TEAMS

UP WITH "BREAD OF LIFE," TO

HELP OVER 1500 A MONTH IN

PERRY COUNTY.

THE PASTOR SAYS THE FOOD

FROM "OPERATION BLESSING"

DOES MORE THAN JUST NEED

PHYSICAL NEEDS.

THE FOOD GIVES US SUCH A

TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITY TO

SHOW PEOPLE THAT WE CARE,

THAT JESUS CARES, ABOUT

THEM.

AND IT OPENS THEIR HEART TO

RECEIVE GOD'S WORD.

Reporter: THE FAMILY IS

DOING WELL NOW, THANKS TO

THE INCOME FROM THE ARMY.

AND WHILE HER HUSBAND SERVES

HIS COUNTRY, BECCA MAKES IT

A PRIORITY TO VOLUNTEER AT

"BREAD OF LIFE."

SHE SAYS SHE IS GRATEFUL

THEY WERE THERE FOR HER

FAMILY, AND WANTS TO MAKE

SURE OTHERS HAVE THE SAME

KIND OF BLESSING THEY GOT

WHEN THEY NEEDED IT MOST.

IT WAS A RELIEF TO KNOW

WE HAD "BREAD OF LIFE," AND

"OPERATION BLESSING" THERE

TO HELP US WHEN WE WERE IN

THE TRENCHES.

THANKS DOESN'T REALLY EVEN

COVER IT.

IT SEEMS LIKE SUCH A SMALL

WORD TO SAY BECAUSE IT IS.

IT IS AMAZING THE LIVES THAT

ARE TOUCHED AND CHANGED

THROUGH "OPERATION

BLESSING."

Gordon: WHEN PEOPLE ARE

HURTING, WE WANT TO BE

THERE.

WE WANT TO BE THERE WITH

HANDS OF LOVE AND

COMPASSION, TO SAY YOU'RE

NOT GOING THROUGH THIS

ALONE.

WE WANT TO HELP YOU SEE IT

THROUGH.

THAT IS HAPPENING ACROSS

AMERICA.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

FEEDING THREE MILLION

AMERICANS EVERY MONTH

THROUGH THAT WONDERFUL FOOD

PROGRAM.

AND THAT'S JUST ONE OF THE

THINGS WE'RE DOING.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF ALL OF

IT.

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.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS.

AND WE ASK FOR YOUR

$150,000, AND WE HAVE UNTIL

THE END OF THE HOUR.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

SO GO TO THE PHONE AND CALL

US.

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO OVER TO WENDY.

Wendy: THANK YOU,

GORDON.

I LOVE THIS SCRIPTURE IN

AMOS 3, AND IT SAYS GOD DOES

NOTHING WITHOUT REVEALING

HIS PLANS AND HIS SECRET TO

HIS SERVANTS.

AND THROUGHOUT HISTORY, GOD

HAS USED DREAMS TO DO JUST

THAT.

TAKE A LOOK.

Announcer: IN GORD

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 LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW

GOD USED DREAMS THROUGHOUT

THE BIBLE, AND TO LEARN MORE

ABOUT HOW GOD IS SPEAKING TO

YOU IN YOUR OWN DREAMS,

GUESS WHAT?

WE HAVE THE PERFECT GIFT FOR

YOU NOW.

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT."

GORDON'S PHENOMENAL NEW

TEACHING.

YOU CAN HAVE THE ANSWER WHEN

YOU GIVE US A CALL RIGHT

NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

AND JUST SAY, YES, I LOVE

CBN, I LOVE WHAT YOU'RE

DOING AROUND THE WORLD, AND

I WANT TO BE A PART OF IT.

IT IS THAT SIMPLE.

OUR COUNCILLORS ARE WAITING

TO TAKE YOUR CALL.

THEY BRAVED THE SNOW TO GET

IN HERE THIS MORNING TO PRAY

FOR YOU.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

$150,000, AND I'M GOING TO

THROW IT BACK OVER TO

GORDON.

Gordon: A NEW STUDY

SAYS EIGHT OUT OF 10

AMERICANS ARE STRESSED OUT

ABOUT MONEY.

FOR SCOTT CARLTON THAT

STRESS WAS MULTIPLIED WHEN

HIS BUSINESS FAILED AND HE

WAS FORCED TO DECLARE

BANKRUPTCY.

Reporter: SCOTT CARLTON

OF IDAHO RECENTLY FACED ONE

OF THE MOST CHALLENGING

SEASONS OF HIS LIFE.

HIS LANDSCAPING BUSINESS HAD

FAILED AND HE WAS BROKE.

YOU'RE COVERAGE GETS TO

THE POINT WHERE THERE IS

NOTHING LEFT.

AND THERE IS NOTHING LEFT IN

THE FRIDGE.

YOU'RE AT THAT POINT WHERE

DOG FOOD IS LOOKING PRETTY

GOOD.

Reporter: FOR YEARS,

SCOTT INVESTED EVERYTHING IN

THE BUSINESS, REGULARLY

WORKING SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.

BUT WITH THE DOWNTURN IN THE

ECONOMY, SCOTT SAYS HE MADE

SOME RISKY BUSINESS

DECISIONS THAT FORCED HIM

INTO BANKRUPTCY.

I SAW MY BUSINESS SHRINK

FROM 45 EMPLOYEES TO THREE

EMPLOYEES WITHIN A MATTER OF

MONTHS.

IT WAS AS IF I WAS LOSING A

PART OF ME.

BECAUSE THAT WAS ALL THAT I

HAD.

HOW COULD I KEEP GOING ON?

BECAUSE I HAD FAILED SO

MISERABLY.

AND IT TRULY WAS MY FAULT.

I THOUGHT ABOUT ENDING IT,

ABSOLUTELY.

I DIDN'T TURN TO GOD.

I PUSHED GOD AWAY.

I STOPPED GOING TO CHURCH.

I STOPPED READING MY BIBLE.

I STOPPED PRAYING.

Reporter: AS SCOTT

RECOMMITTED HIS LIFE TO

CHRIST AND BEGAN TO TITHE,

THINGS BEGAN TO CHANGE FOR

HIM.

THE FIRST THING THAT

HAPPENED, HE GOT A

HIGH-PAYING JOB AS A SENIOR

STAFFER WORKING FOR AN IDAHO

CONGRESSMAN.

HE HAD WORKED IN GOVERNMENT

YEARS BEFORE.

KNOWING THAT THERE WAS A

MONTHLY INCOME WAS SURELY A

BLESSING AT THAT MOMENT IN

TIME.

Reporter: THEN SCOTT

BEGAN TO NOTICE OTHER

BLESSINGS.

EVERY TIME I RAISED MY

PLEDGE TO CBN, I WOULD

EITHER GET A RAISE OR SOME

SIDE INCOME.

Reporter: IN FACT, THIS

PAST YEAR, SCOTT MADE AN

EXTRA $40,000 FROM SOME

LANDSCAPE SOFTWARE HE

CREATED AND OTHER LANDSCAPE

BUSINESS HE DID ON THE

SIDE.

SCOTT CREDITS HIS SUCCESS TO

ONE SIMPLE PRINCIPLE.

TITHING WORKS.

I'M POSITIVE YOU CAN'T

OUTGIVE GOD.

Gordon: YOU CAN'T

OUTGIVE GOD.

TITHING WORKS.

WHEN YOU PUT IT INTO

PRACTICE ON A REGULAR BASIS,

THAT'S WHEN THE BLESSINGS

COME.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

JUST $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A "700

CLUB" MEMBER, CONSIDER GOING

TO "700 CLUB" GOLD, $40 A

MONTH.

AND WE'VE GOT THE THOUSAND

CLUB, WHICH IS $1,000 A

YEAR, AND IT BREAKS OUT TO

$84 A MONTH.

AT WHATEVER LEVEL, NOW IS

THE TIME TO CALL US.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: MR. AND MRS. YU

WANTED CHILDREN MORE THAN

ANYTHING.

AFTER 10 YEARS, THAT DREAM

FINALLY CAME TRUE.

BUT WHEN MRS. YU FIRST HELD

HER NEWBORN TWINS FOR THE

FIRST TIME, WHAT SHE SAW WAS

SO SHOCKING, SHE NEARLY

FAINTED.

Terry: AFTER 10 YEARS

OF MARRIAGE, THIS COUPLE

STILL COULD NOT HAVE

CHILDREN.

MY PARENTS SUGGESTED WE

ADOPT.

Terry: THE YUs WERE

JUST ABOUT TO GIVE UP WHEN

THE DOCTOR GAVE THEM SOME

STARTLING NEWS.

THEY WERE PREGNANT WITH

TWINS.

BUT NINE MONTHS LATER, THE

BABY BOYS WERE BOTH BORN

WITH CELESTICA LIP CLEFT

LIPS AND PA PALATES.

MRS. YU NEARLY FAINTED WHEN

SHE SAW THEM.

AFTER WAITING SO LONG, IT

SEEMED UNFAIR.

IT WAS SO HARD FOR ME TO

ACCEPT THIS.

Terry: DOCTORS DIDN'T

OFFER MUCH HOPE, EITHER.

THEY SAID THEY NEVER HAD

SEEN SUCH SEVERE CLEFT LIPS

OR PALATES.

AND THEY SAID THE BABIES

NEEDED SURGERY RIGHT AWAY.

Terry: A TWO WEEKS OLD,

THE TWINS GOT PNEUMONIA.

WATCHING THEIR LITTLE

BODIES GET MORE AND MORE

SICK WAS REALLY SCARY.

I WORRIED ABOUT THEM AND

WONDERED IF THEY WOULD GROW

UP TO BE LIKE NORMAL

CHILDREN.

Terry: MR. YU WORKS

HARD DRIVING A TRACTOR, BUT

HE ONLY MAKES $80 A MONTH.

THAT MEANT CLEFT LIP AND

PALATE SURGERIES WAS OUT OF

THE QUESTION.

SOME SUGGESTED THEY GIVE UP

THEIR BABIES.

ONE DOCTOR SUGGESTED THEY

CALLED CBN FOR HELP.

THEY DID.

AND WITHIN A WEEK, CBN HAD

SET UP FREE SURGERIES FOR

THE BOYS.

I WAS SO HAPPY WHEN I

HEARD ABOUT THE KIND-HEARTED

PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES,

AND HOW THEY WERE GOING TO

HELP US.

I COULD HARDLY WAIT TO SEE

THE TWINS ALL FIXED UP.

Terry: THE

TRANSFORMATION BROUGHT

SMILES TO THE TWINS' FACES

AND JOY TO THE YU's

HEARTS.

I USED TO THINK THERE WAS

NO HOPE AND LIFE WAS TOO

HARD.

SINCE THE OPERATIONS, MY

TWINS ARE GETTING HEALTHIER

AND HEALTHIER EVERY DAY.

THEY WERE GROWING UP FAST

AND LOOKING LOVELY.

IT IS SO GOOD TO KNOW THERE

IS SOMEONE LIKE CBN OUT

THERE WILLING TO HELP.

I'M EXTREMELY GRATEFUL.

VERY THANKFUL.

NOW THE TWINS WILL HAVE A

BRIGHT FUTURE.

Terry: HE IS RIGHT

ABOUT THAT.

THEIR LIVES WERE FOREVER

CHANGED BY YOUR KINDNESS AND

GENEROSITY.

AND WE JUST WANT TO SAY

THANK YOU.

WHAT AN AMAZING

TRANSFORMATION.

YOU OPENED THE DOOR TO THE

FUTURE FOR THESE LITTLE

WINS, AND YOU BLESSED THE

HEARTS OF THEIR PARENTS.

THEIR HEARTS WERE SO

DESPERATE TO HELP THEIR

CHILDREN.

THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES MADE

THAT SO IMPOSSIBLE.

YOU ARE PART OF THE ANSWER

TO GOD RESPONDING TO THEIR

PRAYERS.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

LISTEN, RIGHT NOW CALL "THE

700 CLUB" AND JOIN WITH US.

SAY, I WANT TO BE A

PARTNER.

ALL YOU DO IS CALL THAT

TOLL-FREE NUMBER ON YOUR

SCREEN, AND EXPRESS YOU

WOULD LIKE TO JOIN AT ANY

LEVEL YOU CHOOSE, AND THEN

SAY I WOULD LIKE TO DO IT

WHAT WE CALL PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

IT IS ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES ALL

OF THE WORK.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE

ENVELOPES OR STAMPS OR

REMEMBER TO SEND ANYTHING.

IT IS ALL AUTOMATICALLY DONE

FOR YOU BY YOUR BANK.

YOU CAN STOP ANY TIME YOU

WANT.

BUT IT DOES SAVE US SOME

PROCESSING COSTS, SO EVEN

MORE OF YOUR GIFT CAN GO

RIGHT INTO THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE LIKE THAT FAMILY.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU

FOR USING THAT IS TO SEND

YOU A "POWER FOR LIFE"

TEACHING.

AND YOU'LL HAVE THE

PRIVILEGE OF KNOWING YOU ARE

A BLESSING TO SOMEONE ELSE.

Gordon: IN EASTERN

AFRICA, MEN OF THE MASA

TRIBE ARE RAISED TO BE

WARRIORS, AND THEY SPEND

MUCH OF THEIR TIME AWAY FROM

HOME.

THEIR WIVES AND CHILDREN ARE

OFTEN LEFT BEHIND TO FEND

FOR THEMSELVES.

IN ONE KENYAN VILLAGE, THE

FAMILIES WENT WITHOUT BASIC

NECESSITIES, LIKE FOOD AND

WATER.

[SINGING]

Reporter: IN THE

FOOTHILLS OF MOUNT

KILIMANJARO, "OPERATION

BLESSING" OWNS 50 ACRES OF

LAND.

IT IS A POOR AREA, WHERE

MANY PEOPLE HAVE NO

EDUCATION AT ALL.

SO THE FIRST THING WE DID

WAS BUILD A SCHOOL.

I NEVER THOUGHT MY

CHILDREN WOULD GET AN

EDUCATION.

NOW THAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" HAS BUILT A SCHOOL

THERE, I CAN WALK MY

CHILDREN TO SCHOOL.

THIS IS A GREAT BLESSING.

GOD HAS REMEMBERED US.

Reporter: UNTIL NOW,

THE CLOSEST SCHOOL WAS MORE

THAN FIVE MILES AWAY.

THIS YES, WHERE DOZENS OF

MASAI FAMILIES LIVE IS RIGHT

IN BETWEEN TWO MAJOR GAME

PARKS.

IT IS A HIGH TRAFFIC ZONE

FOR ELEPHANTS.

THEY SAID THE ELEPHANTS

DON'T USUALLY MESS WITH

ADULTS, BUT THEY HAVE BEEN

KNOWN TO ATTACK CHILDREN.

THE MASAI HAVE TO WORK SO

HARD TO MAKE A LIVING, THEY

CAN'T MAKE THE HOURS OUT OF

THEIR DAY TO WALK THEIR KIDS

FIVE MILES TO AND FROM

SCHOOL.

SO THIS SCHOOL REALLY

REPRESENTS THE ONLY

OPPORTUNITY THESE KIDS HAVE

AT GETTING AN EDUCATION.

AS SOON AS WE OPENED THE

SCHOOL, FAMILIES SIGNED UP

MORE THAN 60 CHILDREN.

THEY LOVE GOING TO SCHOOL

HERE.

BUT IT DIDN'T TAKE THE

TEACHERS LONG TO REALIZE

THAT NO ONE WAS BRINGING

ANYTHING TO EAT FOR LUNCH.

THEY FOUND OUT FAMILIES

DIDN'T HAVE ANY FOOD TO SEND

WITH THEIR KIDS.

SO WE'RE GIVING THE KIDS

FREE LUNCHES AND TAKING FOOD

TO THE MOST NEEDY FAMILIES.

THE FAMILIES HERE ARE SO

GRATEFUL FOR THE HELP OF

"OPERATION BLESSING," THAT

WHILE WE'RE SERVING LUNCH TO

THE CHILDREN, THE PARENTS

CAME OUT TO SING A

TRADITIONAL SONG FOR US.

IT IS IN MASAI, AND IT

TRANSLATES, "WE DIDN'T

EXPECT IT, BUT A BLESSING

HAS COME TO US."

FAMILIES ARE NOW FARMING A

LARGE PORTION OF "OPERATION

BLESSING'S" LAND, SO THEY

ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING TO

EAT.

THIS IS A DRY PART OF

AFRICA, WHERE THE PLANTS AND

THE PEOPLE NEED WATER

DESPERATELY.

SO WE ALSO DUG A DEEP WELL

HERE.

AND WE STILL HAVE ENOUGH

LAND FOR JOB TRAINING

CENTERS, SCHOOL EXPANSION,

OR MORE FARMING.

AS WE KEEP WORKING,

"OPERATION BLESSING" WILL

CONTINUE TO GIVE HOPE TO THE

MASAI IN THIS ISOLATED PART

OF KENYA.

THIS IS WHERE I WAS

BORN.

I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING

LIKE THIS HERE.

IT IS LIKE A MIRACLE COMING

INTO A PLACE WHERE THERE WAS

NOTHING.

WE ARE PRAYING AND THANKING

THE LORD FOR WHAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS DOING IN THIS

COMMUNITY.

Gordon: IMAGINE BEING

PART OF THAT, BEING PART OF

BLESSING PEOPLE AROUND THE

WORLD?

THAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

SO IF YOU'RE INTERESTED, NOW

IS THE TIME TO DO IT.

WE'VE GOT A $150,000

CHALLENGE BEFORE US.

AND WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

THIS IS OUR JANUARY

TELETHON.

THIS IS THE TELETHON THAT

DETERMINES THE BUDGET FOR

CBN GOING FORWARD INTO THE

NEW YEAR.

AND WE NEED TO HEAR FROM

YOU.

WITHOUT YOU WE CAN'T DO

THESE THINGS.

WE CAN'T GO TO AFRICA AND

PROVIDE THAT KIND OF

RELIEF.

WE CAN'T PREACH THE GOSPEL

AROUND THE WORLD.

IT IS ALL MADE POSSIBLE

BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE YOU CARE

ENOUGH TO GIVE.

IF THAT'S YOU, GIVE US A

CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," WE'RE GOING TO SEND

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

OF THE NIGHT."

PEOPLE ARE ALREADY TALKING

ABOUT IT, AND WE WANTED YOU

TO HEAR WHAT THEY'RE

SAYING.

TAKE A LOOK.

I JUST WATCHED "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT," AND I THOUGHT

IT WAS AMAZING.

IT IS A VERY POWERFUL

VIDEO.

IT REALLY MAKES YOU THINK

ABOUT GOD DELIVERING A

MESSAGE THROUGH DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

IN GORDON'S D.V.D.,

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT," IT

WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR

ME TO LOOK CAREFULLY AT WHAT

PURPOSE WE HAVE IN OUR

LIVES.

HEARING THE STORIES OF

PEOPLE WHO ALSO HAD DREAMS

AND VISIONS ENCOURAGED ME.

KNOWING NOW THAT HE

PROVIDES INFORMATION THROUGH

DREAMS, I NEED TO BE A

LITTLE BIT MORE OPEN.

I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT

TO SEE THAT THESE EVENTS DO

HAPPEN.

IT HAS INSPIRED ME TO

ACTUALLY GO BACK IN THE

BIBLE.

THE D.V.D. MADE ME FEEL

ENCOURAGED AND PUT HOPE IN

ME TO KNOW THAT GOD STILL

SPEAKS TO HIS PEOPLE TODAY.

THERE ARE OPPORTUNITIES.

IF YOU'RE READY, HE WILL

SPEAK TO YOU.

Wendy: DREAMS ARE AN

AMAZING WAY THAT GOD SPEAKS

TO US.

LET'S FACE IT, SOMETIMES IT

IS THE ONLY WAY HE CAN SPEAK

TO US, WHEN WE'RE QUIET AND

STILL AND HE CAN REALLY GET

OUR ATTENTION.

I LOVE TO KEEP A JOURNAL BY

MY BED AND RECORD MY

DREAMS.

MAYBE YOU'RE THE SAME WAY,

AND MAYBE YOU WOULD LIKE TO

BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD

IS SAYING TO YOU.

WE WANT TO HELP YOU WITH

THAT IN OUR NEW D.V.D.,

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT," AND

WHAT DO YOUR DREAMS MEAN?

THAT'S WHAT WE WANT TO HELP

YOU ANSWER.

THIS NEW D.V.D. IS YOURS

WHEN YOU CALL AND SAY, YES,

I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH TO MAKE MAKE A HUGE

DIFFERENCE IN PEOPLE'S

LIVES.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A "700

CLUB" MEMBER, I WOULD LIKE

TO CHALLENGE YOU TO GO TO

THE NEXT LEVEL.

$40 A MONTH, THAT'S OUR GOLD

LEVEL.

WE'RE GOING TO BLESS YOU

BACK WITH THREE OF THE NEW

TEACHING, ONE FOR YOU AND

THREE TO GIVE AWAY.

IF YOU CAN GO EVEN HIGHER,

OUR THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL,

$84-DOLLAR A MONTH, AND FIVE

D.V.D.s WILL BE OUR GIFT

TO YOU, ONE FOR YOU AND FOUR

TO GIVE AWAY, OR YOU CAN

GIVE THEM ALL AWAY.

WE JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW WE

REALLY LOVE YOU AND

APPRECIATE YOU AND WE WANT

TO BLESS YOU.

IF YOU GO TO YOUR PHONES

RIGHT NOW, EVERY DOLLAR THAT

YOU PLEDGE WILL BE MATCHED

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

PLEASE DON'T DELAY.

10 MINUTES AND 26 SECONDS

LEFT ON THE CLOCK.

BACK TO YOU, GORDON.

Gordon: CBN PROGRAMS

ARE BROADCAST IN MORE THAN

100 COUNTRIES AND PRODUCED

IN MORE THAN 30 LANGUAGES

AROUND THE WORLD.

IN INDONESIA, A MUSLIM MAN

HEARD ABOUT JESUS FOR THE

VERY FIRST TIME AFTER

WATCHING THAT COUNTRY'S

VERSION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

Reporter: ICAN IS A

GRANDFATHER WHO USES

TRADITIONAL PUPPETS TO TEACH

HIS GRANDCHILDREN.

FOR YEARS HE WORKED AS A

PROFESSIONAL STORY-TELLER.

NOW THAT HE IS RETIRED, HE

SAYS HE HAS PLENTY OF TIME

TO THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE.

NOW THAT I AM OLDER, I

OFTEN THINK ABOUT WHERE I

WOULD GO AFTER I DIE.

Reporter: ICAN WAS A

MUSLIM ALL HIS LIFE.

ONE DAY HE SAW A CHRISTIAN

TELEVISION PROGRAM.

IT WAS CBN'S INDONESIAN

VERSION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

I FELT LIABILITIES LIKE

I NEEDED TO SEND A TEXT

MESSAGE TO CBN.

I THOUGHT IF I DID, I MIGHT

BE ABLE TO KNOW GOD.

Reporter: WE EXCHANGED

TEXTS WITH HIM AND ANSWERED

HIS QUESTIONS.

AT THAT TIME, MY LIFE WAS

FULL OF CHALLENGES.

I WANTED TO BELIEVE IN JESUS

BECAUSE I WANTED TO HAVE

PEACE AND HAPPINESS.

Reporter: WHEN A CBN

TEAM WENT TO ICAN'S HOME, HE

AND HIS FAMILY PRAYED WITH

US AND GAVE THEIR LIVES THAT

CHRIST.

A FEW WEEKS LATER ICAN HAD A

VIVID DREAM ABOUT JESUS.

HE WAS DRESSED ALL IN

WHITE, AND HE SAID, "ICAN, I

WANT TO SHOW YOU

SOMETHING."

HE SHOWED ME TWO GROUPS OF

PEOPLE.

ALL OF THE PEOPLE IN ONE

GROUP WERE CRYING OUT FOR

HELP.

THEY WERE VERY AFRAID.

THE OTHER GROUP WAS VERY

HAPPY.

THEY WERE SINGING AND

LAUGHING.

AND THEY WERE NOT AFRAID.

Reporter: THEN JESUS

GAVE HIM SOME INSTRUCTIONS.

HE TOLD ME, "ICAN, LOOK

AROUND YOU AND TELL PEOPLE

WHAT YOU HAVE SEEN SO THEY,

TOO, CAN RECEIVE

SALVATION."

Reporter: ICAN AND HIS

WIFE STARTED ATTENDING A

BIBLE CLASS AND ATTENDING

PRAYER MEETINGS TO GROW IN

THEIR NEW FAITH.

IF I HAD NOT WATCHED THE

CBN PROGRAM, I WOULD NOT

KNOW JESUS AND I WOULD NOT

HAVE PEACE.

PLEASE, YOU MUST KEEP ADDING

THESE PROGRAMS IN MY

LANGUAGE SO OTHERS CAN KNOW

JESUS LIKE I DO.

Gordon: WHAT A

TREMENDOUS DREAM.

AND IT MIRRORS WHAT JESUS

SAID IN THE GOSPELS.

"LIFT UP YOUR EYES FOR THE

FIELDS ARE WHITE UNTO

HARVEST."

THAT'S WHY WE WANT TO

BROADCAST THE GOOD NEWS, THE

GOSPEL, AROUND THE WORLD.

SO THE PEOPLE LIKE ICAN CAN

SEE IT.

HERE HE IS, AND HE'S SAYING,

I WANT TO KNOW GOD.

I WANT TO HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW THE WAY.

ALL WE HAVE TO I DO IS

ANNOUNCE THE GOOD NEWS, THAT

JESUS CAME, HE LIVED A

SINLESS LIFE AND HE DIED ON

THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS.

BUT IT DOESN'T STOP THERE.

HE ROSE AGAIN FROM THE

GRAVE, AND HE CAN APPEAR TO

PEOPLE IN THEIR DREAMS.

AND WE'RE SEEING THAT IN

CULTURE AFTER CULTURE, WHERE

GOD IS SHOWING UP AND HE IS

PROVING HIMSELF.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAYS HE

PROVED HIMSELF.

THAT'S GOING ON TODAY.

HE IS DOING IT TODAY.

INFALLIBLE PROOF THAT GOD IS

THERE, THAT JESUS IS REAL,

AND HE IS THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER.

AND YOU CAN BE A PART OF

THAT.

YOU CAN BE A PART OF

PREACHING THE GOSPEL AROUND

THE WORLD.

HOW?

JUST JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

$20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A DAY,

AND YOU JOIN WITH TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THAT

WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE,

THAT SAY, YES, I WANT TO SEE

THE GOSPEL GO AROUND THE

WORLD.

IF THAT'S YOU, GIVE US A

CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: IN MANY

CULTURES, GYPSIES ARE

CONSIDERED SOCIAL OUTCASTS,

SO IT IS HARD FOR THEM TO

FIND WORK OUTSIDE THEIR

CAMPS.

THAT'S WHY CBN IS HELPING

GYPSY FAMILIES IN UKRAINE

START BUSINESSES OF THEIR

OWN.

Reporter: FOR

GENERATIONS GYPSY FAMILIES

IN UKRAINE HAVE LIVED IN A

CYCLE OF POVERTY.

CHRISTINA'S LIFE HAS BEEN

FILLED WITH NEED AND

HUNGER.

EVERYTHING IS SO HARD

HERE.

WHEN I GET OLDER AND HAVE

CHILDREN, I REALLY WANT MORE

FOR THEM.

I DON'T WANT THEM TO

EXPERIENCE WHAT I WENT

THROUGH.

Reporter: SO SHE WORKS

HARD IN SCHOOL AND WANTS TO

GET A GOOD JOB ONE DAY.

I REALIZED IN THE SIXTH

GRADE WHAT I WANTED TO

BECOME.

A HAIRDRESSER, WHEN I GROW

UP.

I ASKED MY PARENTS TO PAY

FOR MY HAIR DRESSING

COURSES, BUT THEY SAID WE

DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY FOR

FOOD, LET ALONE EXTRA

CLASSES.

Terry: CHRISTINA GOES

TO CLASSES SUPPORTED BY

CBN.

AND SHE IS NOW ON IN ONE OF

THE WORSHIP GROUPS.

I KEEP ASKING GOD TO HELP

MAKE MY DREAMS COME TRUE.

Terry: AT ONE OF OUR

SUMMER CAMPS, CHRISTINA MET

A VOLUNTEER WHO WAS TEACHING

PEOPLE TO CUT HAIR.

SHE REALIZED CHRISTINA HAS A

NATURAL TALENT FOR THIS KIND

OF WORK.

THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES LIVE

IN CAMPS LIKE THIS.

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR

THEM TO FIND WORK OUTSIDE

THE CAMP.

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, JOSEPH

AND DANIEL OFTEN INTERPRETED

OTHER PEOPLE'S DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

BUT THAT IS NOT JUST FOR

PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE.

YOU ALSO 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.

AND THAT REALLY PUT ME ON A

JOURNEY TO BEGIN STUDYING

DREAMS FROM A BIBLICAL

PERSPECTIVE.

AND I WAS BLOWN AWAY BY

THAT.

BUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE

OLD TESTAMENT, BUT ALL THE

WAY TO 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: JANE IS RIGHT.

GOD WILL USE DREAMS TO WARN

US ABOUT THINGS TO COME, TO

CAUSE US TO PRAY FOR OTHER

PEOPLE, AND EVEN TO COMFORT

US.

GOD USES DREAMS IN SO MANY

WAYS.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEARN

MORE ABOUT THEM, WE HAVE THE

PERFECT GIFT FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW, "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT."

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU GIVE US A CALL RIGHT NOW

AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE A

PART OF CBN AND WHAT YOU'RE

DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

THE NUMBER TO CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A PARTNER,

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TAKE IT

UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL, $40 A

MONTH, WE WOULD LIKE TO

BLESS YOU BACK WITH THREE

D.V.D.s.

GORDON?

Gordon: LAST FALL THE

INDIAN COAST WAS RAVAGED BY

A CYCLONE.

IT WAS THE SECOND STRONGEST

TROPICAL STORM EVER TO HIT

IN INDIA.

AND CBN DISASTER TEAMS WERE

ON THE GROUND, HELPING

PEOPLE REBUILD THEIR LIVES.

Reporter: SUBANINI WAS

DOING HER BEST TO SUPPORT

HER FAMILY BY SELLING

VEGETABLES.

BUT HER ONLY SOURCE OF

INCOME SOON WASHED AWAY.

IN OCTOBER 2013, CYCLONE

PHALINE POUNDED INDIA.

THE FLOODS WASHED AWAY

EVERYTHING, INCLUDING MY

VEGETABLES AND BOWLS.

WE PRAYED TO JESUS CHRIST

AND ASKED HIM TO HELP US AND

GIVE US WHAT WE NEEDED TO

STAY ALIVE.

Reporter: THEN CBN CAME

TO HER VILLAGE TO HELP.

WE WERE SO RELIEVED WHEN

CBN CAME TO OUR HOME AND

GAVE US FOOD GRAINS AND

OTHER THINGS WE NEEDED.

Reporter: AFTER WE TOOK

CARE OF HER FAMILY'S

IMMEDIATE NEEDS, WE HELPED

HER RESTART HER BUSINESS.

THIS TIME BIGGER AND

BETTER.

WE GAVE HER A CART WITH

SCALES AND BOWLS AND STOCKED

IT FULL OF VEGETABLES.

YOU HAVE GIVEN US A NEW

LIFE.

I KNOW I WILL BE ABLE TO

SUPPORT MY FAMILY BY SELLING

LOTS OF VE VEGETABLES WITH

THE CART.

I WANT TO THANK YOU FROM THE

BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

JUST IMAGINE PEOPLE AROUND

THE WORLD -- IF YOU'RE A

MEMBER OF "THE 700 CLUB,"

THEY'RE THANKING YOU BECAUSE

YOU'RE THERE.

IT IS THE FAITHFUL GIVING

THAT ALLOWS US TO HAVE THESE

DISASTER TEAMS IN PLACE IN

INDIANA, INDONESIA, THE

PHILIPPINES, JAPAN, AROUND

THE WORLD.

WHEN DISASTER STRIKES, WE

WANT TO BE ABLE TO STRIKE

BACK WITH LOVE AND

COMPASSION, TO SHOW PEOPLE

THAT GOD CARES FOR THEM.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL DAY.

IT'S A GREAT DAY.

$150,000 ON THE CHALLENGE.

AND AGAINST THAT YOU GAVE

$155,000.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM CORINTHIANS:

"THANKS BE TO GOD, WHO GIVES

US THE VICTORY TO OUR LORD

JESUS CHRIST."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN

TOMORROW.
