LIAM DEGRAPH OF VERMONT

LIKES JUST ABOUT ANYTHING

THAT MOVES.

HE IS ESPECIALLY HANDY WITH

HIS A.T.V.

HE LOVES CARS AND

VEHICLES.4JQj:áHE WAS TWO, I CAUGHT

HIM PULLING TIRES OFF OF HIS

A.T.V.

HE HAD IT ON A JACK.

Reporter: RIGHT NOW,

LIAM HAS HIS EYES ON A

SPECIAL DIRT BIKE.

IT IS 125 CCs, AND I

WANT IT TO BE BLUE.

IN AND A COUPLE OF YEARS,

I'LL BE ABLE TO BUY IT.

Reporter: HE COULD HAVE

ALREADY BOUGHT HIS TRAINING

BIKE, BUT HE DECIDED TO DO

SOMETHING ELSE WITH HIS

MONEY.

HIS MOTHER, ALYSSA, TAUGHT

HIM ABOUT TITHING WHEN HE

WAS THREE.

I SAID, I DON'T KNOW WHAT

THE TITHE IS, MOM, WHAT IS

THAT.

AND SHE TOLD ME THAT THE

BIBLE SAYS GIVE 10% TO GOD,

AND IT WILL KEEP US HUMBLE,

AND IT IS STEALING FROM GOD

IF YOU DON'T TITHE.

Reporter: ALYSSA IS A

SINGLE MOM, WHO HAS ALWAYS

TITHED HERSELF, EVEN WHEN

SHE WAS A COLLEGE STUDENT,

WORKING PART-TIMEND

RAISING!XER SON.

THE LORD PROMISES IF

WE'RE FAITHFUL, HE WILL

PROVIDE ALL OF OUR NEEDS.

MY MOM TOLD ME THAT IT

WAS IMPORTANT TO GIVE TO

SOMEBODY THAT HEARING THE

WORD OF GOD.

SINCE THEN I DECIDED I

WANTED TO TITHE.

I LIKE HAVING HIM BE ABLE

TO WATCH CBN.

AS A SINGLE MOM, IT IS

REALLY NEAT TO BE ABLE TO#S( EI-PULL INSOME OTHER GODLY

MEN, EVEN IF IT IS THROUGH

TV.

Reporter: AFTER LOTS OF

CHORES AND SIDE JOBS, LIAM

HAD $70 TO GIVE.

I TOLD THE LADY, I WOULD

LIKE TO GET A MONEY ORDER

FOR CBN.

I WAS HOPING IT WOULD GO TO

SOME KID IN ASIA OR SOME

OTHER COUNTRY, WHO DIDN'T

HAVE FOOD OR WATER OR MONEY

TO BATHE.

EVERY TIME I TITHE, GOD HAS

GIVEN ME MORE OPPORTUNITIES

TO EARN THAT MONEY TOWARDS

THAT BIKE.

I NOTICED WHEN YOU DON'T

TITHE, YOU DON'T GET THAT

OTHER OPPORTUNITY.

Reporter: RECENTLY LIAM

GOT A BIG CHECK FOR HELPING

OUT AT HIS MOM'S OFFICE, AND

SOON HE'LL HAVE THAT DREAM

BIKE.

HE SAYS, TAKE IT FROM HIM,

TITHING WORKS.

HE IS ALREADY SAVING FOR

HIS NEXT MONEY ORDER RUN.

I'D LIKE TO TITHE MY

WHOLE LIFE BECAUSE GOD HAS

JUST BEEN GOOD TO ME IN MY

CHILDHOOD, AND I WOULD LIKE

TO BE ABLE TO BE GOOD TO HIM

THE REST OF MY LIFE.

HE SAYS YOU SHOULD TITHE

10%.

HE IS PERFECT, AND HE ALWAYS

TELLS THE TRUTH, SO WHY

SHOULDN'T YOU?
