Relief from Financial Insecurity

Dana is raising three children alone when a quirky TV set suddenly alters her life. Read Transcript


Reporter: AFTER DANA

GOT MARRIED, HER DREAMS OF

LIVING HAPPILY EVER AFTER

SOON FADED.

HER HUSBAND WAS CONVICTED

FOR CONTRACTOR FRAUD AND

PRESCRIPTION FORGERY.

IT LEFT ME IN SUCH A

STATE OF SHOCK AND

HOPELESSNESS BECAUSE I

TRUSTED HIM.

Reporter: HE WAS

SENTENCED TO 10 YEARS IN

PRISON.

THEY DIVORCED, AND FOR

THE FIRST TIME, DANA AND HER

THREE GIRLS WERE ON THEIR

OWN.

AND THAT LEFT ME WITH

NOTHING BECAUSE I HAD NO

EXPERIENCE, I HAD NO

EDUCATION, I HAD NO, YOU

KNOW, ABILITY, OR SO I

THOUGHT, TO TAKE CARE OF

EVERYTHING ON MY OWN.

AND I WAS DEVASTATED.

AND I JUST PRETTY MUCH RAN

AWAY FROM GOD FOR A WHILE.

Reporter: SHE WORKED

ODD JOBS, BUT DIDN'T MAKE

MUCH MONEY.

I COULDN'T EVEN BUY

AND WE WERE, YOU KNOW, VERY

RELIANT ON RAHMAN NOODLES.

I FELT VERY DESTITUTE AT

THAT TIME.

Reporter: ONE DAY DANA

AND THE GIRLS WERE WATCHING

TV.

THE TELEVISION JUST SHUT

OFF.

EVERYTHING ELSE WAS ON, BUT

THE TV WAS OFF.

I GOT UP AND WENT TO FLIP

THE BREAKERS.

I HIT THE SWITCH A FEW

TIMES.

I CAME BACK AND SAT DOWN AND

PRESSED THE POWER ON THE

REMOTE, AND WHEN I TURNED IT

ON, IT WAS "THE 700 CLUB"

THAT WAS ON.

AND I PROMISE YOU THAT IS

NOT WHAT WE WERE WATCHING AT

ALL, OKAY?

AND WHEN I TURNED IT ON, A

LADY SAID, I WANT YOU TO

KNOW THAT YOU CAN TRUST THE

LORD WITH YOUR FINANCES.

Terry: TRUST GOD TO

PROVIDE WHAT YOU NEED.

AND I THOUGHT, WHAT IS

BETTER THAN THAT.

I THOUGHT, GOD IS STILL

LOOKING AFTER ME.

HE STILL DOES LOVE ME.

HE MAY NOT BE THAT MAD AT ME

AFTER ALL, FOR HIM TO GET MY

ATTENTION LIKE THAT.

BECAUSE I WAS RUNNING AFAR.

I GOT THE PHONE AND CALLED

THE NUMBER ON THE SCREEN.

THE LADY PRAYED WITH ME,

SAID A BEAUTIFUL PRAYER,

THAT I WOULD GET A REGULAR,

FULL-TIME JOB.

AND I BECAME A PARTNER WITH

"THE 700 CLUB" AT THAT

MOMENT.

AND I DECIDED RIGHT THEN TO

START TITHING.

Reporter: A FEW WEEKS

LATER DANA GOT A JOB AS THE

ACTIVITY DIRECTOR AT A HOME

FOR SENIOR CITIZENS.

I GOT A JOB THAT I

ABSOLUTELY LOVE DOING.

AND A FEW MONTHS AFTER THAT,

I WAS HIRING PEOPLE TO DO

WHAT I WAS DOING.

AND I WAS PUT IN AN EVEN

HIGHER POSITION.

SO THAT WAS A PIVOTAL MOMENT

IN GOD RESCUING ME, PULLING

ME BACK.

Reporter: DANA

REMARRIED.

TODAY SHE AND HER HUSBAND,

FRANK, TRUST GOD WITH THEIR

MARRIAGE, THEIR CHILDREN AND

THEIR FINANCES.

DANA THANKS GOD FOR THE MANY

BLESSINGS IN HER LIFE.

IT WAS A GIFT FROM GOD,

TO HELP ME OUT LIKE THAT.

HE SHOWED ME THAT HEhHAS GOT

HE'S TAKING CARE OF ME.
