The 700 Club - May 16, 2014

A nine-year old uses a surprising strategy to obtain his heart’s desire. Plus, led to Christ by CBN’s original Superbook 20 years ago, Marianna returns to her native Russia as a missionary. Read Transcript


[APPLAUSE]

Terry: HELLO, EVERYONE,

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE DEBATE IS GROWING OVER

THE NEW COMMON CORE

CURRICULUM IN PUBLIC

SCHOOLS, AND NOW EVEN SOME

TEACHERS' UNIONS ARE

OPPOSING IT.

PARENTS ARE COMPLAINING THAT

THE NEW LESSONS DON'T MAKE

SENSE, AND CRITICS SAY THAT

THE PLAN GIVES THE

GOVERNMENT TOO MUCH POWER IN

THE CLASSROOM.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: MORE THAN 40

STATES HAVE IMPLEMENTED THE

COMMON CORE STANDARDS IN THE

LAST YEAR, BUT OPPOSITION IS

GROWING.

PARENT GROUPS HAVE FORMED IN

MULTIPLE STATES, AND INDIANA

BECAME THE FIRST STATE TO

DROP IT.

NOW TEACHERS' UNIONS ARE

BACKING OFF IN TENNESSEE,

NEW YORK STATE, AND CHICAGO,

AND TEACHERS ARE SAYING, NOT

SO FAST.

ONE BIG PROBLEM IS THE QUICK

ROLLOUT OF THE COMMON CORE

STANDPDS AND THE

GO WITH THEM.

WHAT WE'RE NOT HEARING IN

THE DEBATE IS THAT TEACHERS

ARE BEING EVALUATED LARGELY

ON THE IMPROVEMENTS THAT

THEIR KIDS MAKE, AS MEASURED

BY TESTS, THAT ARE BUILT OFF

THE COMMON CORE.

Reporter: BOTTOM LINE,

MAJOR CHANGES IN CURRICULUM

GUIDED BY THE NEW STANDARDS

HAVE MANY STUDENTS AND

TEACHERS CONFUSED AND

STRUGGLING TO CATCH UP AND

TRY TO PERFORM WELL ON

TESTS, WHICH INCLUDE SOME

cOR(LICATED PROBLEMS.

IT'S WHY AN OREGON TEACHERS'

UNION IS NOW JOINING THE

FIGHT.

IT WANTS OREGON TO DROP ITS

COMMON CORE TESTS FOR MATH

AND READING NEXT SPRING, BUT

THE STATE SAYS THE TESTS

WILL STAY BECAUSE THE

CURRENT BAR FOR STUDENTS IS÷

TOO LOW.

SUPPORTERS OF COMMON CORE

SAY THE STANDARDS WILL HELP

KEEP THE BAR HIGH FOR ALL

STUDENTS AND MAKE SURE ALL

CHILDREN GET THE SAME

EDUCATION.

BUT CRITICSúSHY THIS IS

ABOUT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

TAKING TOO MUCH CONTROL OF

EDUCATION.

AND THEY SAY THE STANDARDS

TAKE AWAY LOCAL OVERSIGHT.

PARENTS CAN'T GET RELIEF

FROM THEIR STATE OFFICIALS.

THEY REALLY CAN'T GET RELIEF

FROM FEDERAL OFFICIALS IN

MANY RESPECTS, AND THEY'RE

LEFT WITH NO ONE TO GO TO.

Reporter: FOR MONTHS

THE COMMON CORE FIGHT HAS

DCONSERVATIRj AND

LIBERALS.

BUT WITH LIBERAL TEACHER

GROUPS NOW JOINING THE

OPPOSITION, THE FIGHT JUST

GOT MORE COMPLICATED, AND IT

COULD EASILY SPILL OVER INTO

POLITICAL COMPAIGNS IN

UPCOMING ELECTIONS.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Terry: WELL, THE

CONTROVERSY OVER THIS CHON

CORE CURRICULUM IS FAR FROM

OVER, AND WE'LL KEEP YOU

POSTED ON ALL OF IT.

IN OTHER NEWS, A JUDGE IN

SUDAN HAS SENTENCED A

DEATH BECAUSE SHE WON'T GIVE

UP HER FAITH.

JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE ON THAT

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

JOHN?

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

TERRY.

MERIAM WAS CONVICTED OF

APOSTASY ON SUNDAY AFTER SHE

WOULDN'T CONVERT TO ISLAM.

SHE WAS GIVEN FOUR DAYS TO

CHANGE HER MIND, AND WHEN

SHE DIDN'T, THE JUDGE

SENTENCED HER TO DEATH BY

HANGING.

SHE SAYS HE HAS NEVER BEEN A

MUSLIM, BUT CHILDREN OFhAN

ISLAMIC FATHER IN SUDAN ARE

CONSIDERED ISLAM'S.

BUT SHE SAYS HER FATHER LEFT

HER FAMILY WHEN HE WAS

YOUNG, AND SHE WAS RAISED A

CHRISTIAN BY HER ETHIOPIAN

MOTHER.

SHE WAS SENTENCED TO 100

LASHES FOR ADULTERY.

THE JUDGE DELAYED THE

SENTENCE UNTIL AFTER HER

BABY IS BORN.

SHE IS EIGHT MONTHS

PREGNAOD.

HERE AT HOME, A TWO-DAY

SUMMIT AGAINST SEXUAL

EXPLOIMENTTATION

EXPLOITATION AND PORNOGRAPHY

IS UNDER WAY.

THEY SAY PORN HAS BEEN

LINKED TO VIOLENCE, ALONG

WITH ADULTERY AND DIVORCE.

A NEUROSURGEON TALKED ABOUT

HOW PORN CHANGES THE BRAINS

OF USERS AND CAUSES THEM TO

BE ADDICTED.

AND THEY SAY THE PORN

INDUSTRY DELIBERATELY SETS

OUT TO CREATE ADDICTS.

THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS

COMMISSION HAS TAKEN THE

FIRST STEP TOWARDS NEW

REGULATIONS FOR THE

INTERNET.

THE PROPOSED RULES WOULD

ALLOW INTERNET SERVICE

PROVIDERS TO CHARGE OTHER

BUSINESSES, MOR BUSINESSES

MORE FOR HIGHER SPEED ACCESS

OVER THE WEB.

THE DEMOCRATS SUPPORTED5=(HEM, AND THE REPUBLICANS

WERE AGAINST.

AND SUPPORTERS SAY THE WEB

NEEDS THAT REGULATION, WHILE

OPPONENTS ARGUE GOVERNMENT

REGULATION WOULD BE BAD FOR

THE WEB.

THE RULES ARE OPEN FOR

PUBLIC COMMENT FOR FOUR

MONTHS.

BACK TO YOU.

Gordon: WELL, THESE

REGULATIONS -- GET READY.

THIS IS NOT GOING TO MAKE IT

EASY FOR ANY NEW START-UP

BUSINESS.

AND FOR THOSE OF YOU AT

HOME, IT MAY ACTUALLY MAKE

THESE BOTTLENECKS EVEN

WORSE.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB" AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: FOR MONTHS,9-YEAR-OLD LIA HAS BEEN

SAVING HIS NEW CHANGE TO BUY

A NEW BIKE.

AND YET, WHEN HE FINALLY HAD

ENOUGH SAVED UP, LIAM

CHANGED HIS MIND AND SPENT

THE MONEY ON PEOPLE HE HAD

NEVER EVEN MET.

Reporter: 9-YEAR-OLD

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?

Gordon: LIAM HAS

LEARNED ONE OF THE GREAT

SECRETS.

HERE IT IS FROM PSALM 37:

"WHEN YOU DELIGHT YOURSELF

IN THE LORD, HE SHALL GIVE

YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR

HEART."

HERE LIAM SAID, I'M GOING TO

PUT GOD FIRST, I'M GOING TO

PUT THE TITHE FIRST, I'M

GOING TO PUT OTHERS FIRST.

I'M GOING TO HELP PEOPLE

I'VE NEVER EVEN MET AND I'M

GOING TO PROVIDE FOR THEM.

THEN WHAT HAPPENED?

GOD SAW THAT AND HE PROVIDED

FOR LIAM AND GAVE HIM HIS

HEART'S DESIRE.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF

YOU FOLLOW THE SAME

PRINCIPLE.

HERE IS LIAM WHO SAYS, I

WANT TO TITHE ALL MY LIFE.

WHEN YOU DO IT THAT WAY AND

YOU DO IT FAITHFULLY, THAT'S

WHEN THE BLESSINGS COME.

ON HER WELDING DAY, DANA

MANAGED A WONDERFUL LIFE

WITH A WONDERFUL HUSBAND.

SHE NEVER DREAMED THAT 15

YEARS LATER SHE WOULD BE

LEFT ALONE WITH THREE

CHILDREN, NO MONEY, AND NO

JOB.

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.

Gordon: HE'S GOT YOUR

BACK, TOO.

REALIZE YOUR HEAVENLY

FATHER -- AND HE LOVES YOU

TO CALL HIM DADDY, TO CALL

HIM FATHER -- OUR FATHER

LOVES YOU.

AND WHEN YOU ARE IN TROUBLE,

HE WANTS TO DELIVER YOU.

HERE IS THE PSALM THAT

PROMISES IT, PSALM 50: 15:

"CALL UPON ME IN THE DAY OF

TROUBLE.

I WILL DELIVER YOU, AND YOU

SHALL GLORIFY ME."

DANA LEARNED THE SECRET.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

UPON HIM.

AND SHOW HIM THAT YOU TRUST

HIM WITH YOUR FINANCES.

WHEN YOU DO, HE WILL PROVIDE

FOR YOU.

NOW, IF YOU WANT TO START

THAT, IF YOU WANT TO SAY, I

WANT TO LIVE A LIFE OF

TITHING, I WANT TO BE

FAITHFUL TO GOD.

GOD HAS BEEN FAITHFUL TO ME,

IN CHINA, A YOUNG FARMER AND

HIS FAMILY LIVE ON JUST $300

A YEAR.

THEY'VE ALSO MANAGED TO GET

BY, UNTIL THEIR NEWBORN

DAUGHTER NEEDED AN EXPENSIVE

OPERATION.

WHEN SHAYONG FOUND OUT SHE

WAS GOING TO HAVE A SISTER,

SHE COULDN'T WAIT.

I DECIDED TO GIVE MY TOYS

TO MY SISTER, WHEN SHE WAS

YOUNG, TO SHOW HER MY LOVE.

I WAS SURE

ABOUT THE MONEY.

I KNEW MY FAMILY WAS

DEPENDING ON ME.

BUT I DID NOT HAVE ANY WAY

TO HELP MY BABY.

I WAS WORRIED, TOO.

I PRETENDED TO BE OKAY IN

FRONT OF MY PARENTS BECAUSE

THEY HAD SO MUCH GOING ON

ALREADY.

BUT MY EYES WERE ALWAYS RED

FROM CRYING.

Terry: THE FAMILY KNEW

SHALING'A LIP WOULD ONLY GET

WORSE, AND NO ONE THEY ASKED

COULD HELP.

THEN THEY HEARD ABOUT CBN,

AND WE ARRANGED FOR FREE

SURGERY.

I SAW MY MOM SMILE FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG

TIME.

AND I WAS SO HAPPY THAT I

JUMPED REALLY HIGH.

Terry: THE CLEFT LIP

AND PALATE SURGERY MADE A

BIG DIFFERENCE IN SHALING'S

LIFE.

SHALING IS LIKE A NEW

GIRL.

SHE LOOKS LIKE A PRINCESS

WITH THE NEW SMILE FROM

CBN.

NOW SHE HAS GAINED

WEIGHT.

SHE WILL BE ABLE TO GO TO

SCHOOL, FIND A JOB, AND GET

MARRIED.

I DO NOT NEED TO WORRY

ABOUT HER FUTURE ANYMORE.

AND I'M SO THANKFUL FOR YOUR

KIND HELP.

Terry: CAN YOU IMAGINE

HOW DISTRAUGHT YOU WOULD

FEEL IF THAT WAS YOUR LITTLE

GIRL, AND YOU KNEW IT COULD

BE FIXED, BUT YOU DIDN'T

HAVE THE MONEY FOR IT.

AND THEN SOMEONE LOVES YOU

ENOUGH TO COME ALONG AND

WELL, NOT LONG AGO, LATICIA

WAS LIVING ON UNEMPLOYMENT

AND OVERWHELMED BY BILLS.

THEN SHE MADE A DECISION,

AND SUDDENLY HER PHONE WAS

RINGING WITH JOB OFFERS.

Reporter: LATICIA

THOMAS LOVES HER JOB SERVING

AS A MANAGER FOR A HEALTH

CARE COMPANY.

RAISING HER 5-YEAR-OLD

DIFFICULT.

A FEW YEARS AGO, IT WAS A

DIFFERENT PICTURE.

SHE HAD RECENTLY DIVORCED,

HAD LOST HER JOB, AND WAS

CARING FOR HER BABY.

I WAS NOT VERY HAPPY WITH

MYSELF AT THAT TIME, AND

VERY UNSURE.

BUT IN THE BACK OF MY MIND,

I JUST KNEW THAT GOD WOULD

PROVIDE.

I JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW.

I WAS LOOKING AT MY MESS AND

SAYING, GOD, HOW CAN YOU

BLESS THIS SITUATION?

HOW CAN YOU HELP US HERE AND

NOW?

THIS IS TOO MUCH.

THIS IS TOO MUCH.

Reporter: AS LATICIA

SCRAPED BY ON HER SAVINGS

AND UNEMPLOYMENT CHECKS, THE

BILLS BECAME UNBEARABLE.

FOOD WAS SCARCE.

WE BECAME BEST FRIENDS WITH

THE PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY

SANDWICH.

Reporter: BUT EVEN IN

HER TIME OF NEED, LATICIa

CHURCH.

SOMETHING SHE STARTED MONTHS

BEFORE.

I HAD SEEN GOD WORK

BEFORE, WHY WOULD I STOP

NOW?

WHETHER I'M GOING TO TITHE

FROM MY WAGES OR MY

UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS, OR A

CHECK IN THE MAIL, I'M GOING

TO GIVE GOD WHAT I SAID I

WOULD GIVE HIM.

Reporter: IT WAS

SOMETHING HE LEARNED IN

CHURCH.

THEY TAUGHT THE BASIC

LESSON ABOUT TITHING, AND

THAT GOD IS REALLY LOOKING

FOR YOUR OBEDIENCE.

Reporter: AND SHORTLY

AFTER, HER PHONE BEGAN TO

RING.

EVERY TIME MY PHONE WOULD

RING, IT WAS A DIFFERENT

JOB, A DIFFERENT EMPLOYER

SAYING, ARE YOU AVAILABLE

FOR AN INTERVIEW.

Reporter: SHE WAS

EXCITED TO GET BACK TO WORK,

BUT SOON SHE WAS READY FOR

THE NEXT STEP.

SO SHE INCREASED HER GIVING

AGAIN.

ONE DAY HQ SUPERVISOR CAME

TO HER.

SHE GAVE ME A FOLDED UP

PIECE OF PAPER WITH A JOB

POSITION.

AND I APPLIED FOR IT.

I THOUGHT IT WAS ODD THAT MY

CURRENT SUPERVISOR WAS

SHOWING ME ANOTHER JOB.

SHE CAME TO ME AND SAID, I

BELIEVE IN YOU.

I BELIEVE YOU HAVE AN

ABUNDANT POTENTIAL TO DO

MUCH MORE THAN YOU'RE DOING

HERE.

LOOK AT THIS POSITION AND

APPLY.

Reporter: SHE APPLIED

FOR THE JOB, AND THREE WEEKS

LATER --

I WAS DRIVING TO MY

DAUGHTER'S SCHOOL WHEN I

RECEIVED A PHONE CALL.

I ANSWERED THE PHONE, AND IT

WAS THE H.R. DIRECTOR FROM

THE DREAM JOB.

HE SAID, I'D LIKE TO KNOW IF

YOU COULD START THIS

POSITION IN TWO WEEKS.

I HAD TO PULL OVER.

I HAD TO PULL OVER.

I WAS ON THE PHONE, AND

HE'S, LIKE, ARE YOU THERE?

LATICIA, ARE YOU THERE?

I SAID, YES, CAN YOU GIVE ME

A MINUTE, PLEASE.

I PUT THE PHONE ON MUTE, AND

I BEGAN SCREAMING,

HALLELUJAH.

I WAS SO HAPPY.

Reporter: WITH THE NEW

JOB, LATICIA'S SALARY HAD

DOUBLED.

TODAY SHE CONTINUES TO GIVE

MORE, AND CREDITS ALL OF HER

SUCCESS TO GOD'S

FAITHFULNESS.

I HAD TO DO THIS.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY OTHER

RESOURCE.

SO 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.

AND WITH THE SAME MEASURE

THAT YOU USE, IT SHALL BE

MEASURED BACK TO YOU."

I'M SITTING HERE SAYING, GOD

HAS JUST BEEN SO FAITHFUL.

REALLY, I COULD HAVE BEEN

ANYWHERE ELSE.

IT COULD HAVE GONE ANOTHER

WAY, IT REALLY COULD HAVE,

BUT GOD HAS JUST BEEN SO

FAITHFUL.

Gordon: LATICIA LEARNED

ONE OF THE GREAT SECRETS,

AND WE CALL IT THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY.

THESE ARE THE WORDS OF

JESUS, "GIVE, AND IT WILL BE

GIVEN TO YOU.

A GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED

DOWN, SHAKEN TOGETHER, AND

RUNNING OVER WILL BE POURED

INTO YOUR LAP.

FOR WITH THE MEASURE YOU

USE, IT WILL BE MEASURED TO

YOU."

YOU CAN DO THE SAME THING.

YOU CAN PUT THE SAME

PRINCIPLE IN ACTION.

GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR OTHERS,

HE WILL DO FOR YOU IF YOU DO

THE SAME THING.

SO IF YOU WANT TO START

THAT, GIVE US A CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

WE'RE CLOSING IN ON VICTORY

ON A $32,000 CHALLENGE.

STILL 18 MINUTES AND 52

SECONDS ON THAT CLOCK.

BUT YOUR GIFT CAN BE DOUBLED

IF YOU GIVE RIGHT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

WELL, PEOPLE ARE ALREADY

TALKING ABOUT OUR LATEST

D.V.D. CALLED "LIVING UNDER

GOD'S BLESSING."

IT FEATURES TEACHING FROM

PAT AND GORDON ROBERTSON AND

SHOWS YOU HOW TO EXPERIENCE

THE SAME BLESSING THAT GOD

PROMISED THE NATION OF

IRISH.

HERE IS ONE VIEWER HAD TO

SAY ABOUT THIS EXCITING NEW

D.V.D.

GOD HELPS ME THROUGH

DAILY CHALLENGES BY POURING

HIS WISDOM INTO ME.

IT IS SIMPLY A MATTER OF

ASKING.

LIVING UNDER GOD'S BLESSING

REMINDS ME THAT GOD FULFILLS

HIS PROMISES.

AND ISRAEL IS PROOF THAT GOD

IS DOING THAT IN MEDICINE,

IN AGRICULTURE, IN

TECHNOLOGY, IN SCIENCE.

WE COULD LEARN SO MUCH FROM

ISRAEL IF WE WOULD PAY

ATTENTION TO THEM.

IT IS OBVIOUS THEY GOT THEIR

INSPIRATION FROM GOD.

I THINK PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW

THAT GOD IS THE GOD OF THE

ISRAELIS.

HE IS BLESSING THEM.

HE IS GIVING THEM IDEAS.

HE IS GIVING THEM

SOLUTIONS.

IF GOD WILL DO THAT FOR

ISRAEL, HE WILL DO IT FOR

ME.

LIVING UNDER GOD'S BLESSING

IS ENLIGHTENING,

INFORMATIVE, AND A

SAFE-BUILDING D.V.D.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO

ANYONE.

Wendy: ISRAEL IS PROOF

THAT GOD IS A GOD OF

MIRACLES.

AND WHAT GOD DID FOR ISRAEL,

HE WANTS TO DO FOR YOU.

LEARN HOW IN OUR NEW

TEACHING, "LIVING UNDER

GOD'S BLESSING."

THIS IS YOURS WHEN YOU PICK

UP THE PHONE RIGHT NOW AND

SAY, YES, I WILL JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

ANOTHER GREAT WAY TO GIVE.

YOU'RE SAYING, WENDY, HOW

MUCH IS IT?

GOOD QUESTION.

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY.

$20 A MONTH TO CHANGE THE

WORLD.

A LOT OF YOU ARE ALREADY CBN

PARTNERS, AND I WANT TO SAY

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU.

PUT I WANT TO CHALLENGE

IT IS A NEW SEASON.

LET'S TAKE IT UP TO THE NEXT

FIVE D.V.D.s.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

$32,000 CHALLENGE, AND THAT

MANAGEMATCHED DOLLAR FOR

GORDON?

Gordon: I'VE GOT SOME

WONDERFUL NEWS.

WE HAD A $32,000 CHALLENGE,

AND SOME PARTNERS FROM THE

SOUTH, TWO FROM TENNESSEE --

SIX TOTAL, TWO FROM

TENNESSEE, TWO FROM

LOUISIANA, ONE FROM FLORIDA,

WEGET TO 10:00, SO LET'S

PRAY.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THESE PARTNERS WHO MADE

IT POSSIBLE TO INCREASE THIS

CHALLENGE MORE THAN DOUBLE.

SO, LORD, BLESS THEM.

WE KNOW YOUR WORD IS TRUE,

SO OPEN THE WINDOWS OF

WELL, CBN'S ANIMATED PROGRAM

"SUPERBOOK" IS INTRODUCING

THE STORIES OF THE BIBLE TO

CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD.

AND IT'S REACHING THE

FARTHEST CORNERS OF THE

EARTH.

LIKE THIS REMOTE VILLAGE IN

EASTERN RUSSIA.

Reporter: RICK AND

MARIANA ARE MISSIONARIES IN

THE REMOTE FAR EAST OF

RUSSIA, NOT FAR FROM THE

ARCTICCIRCLE.

THEY WORK WITH THE PEOPLE

GROUP KNOWN AS THE ANCH

AVENGERS.

THEY LIVE FAR FROM HOME

TAKING CARE OF THE REINDEER,

WHILE THE MOTHERS TAKE CARE

OF THE HOUSEHOLD.

THE CHILDREN ARE OFTEN LEFT

ALONE.

IT BREAKS MY HEART FOR

THESE KIDS.

I KNOW HOW MUCH THEY NEED

LOVE.

Reporter: MARIANA KNOWSSAARING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS

CHRIST WITH THESE CHILDREN

AND THEIR FAMILIES IS VERY

IMPORTANT.

SHE GREW UP NOT HEARING

ABOUT GOD BECAUSE IN THE

SOVIET UNION PRACTICING ANY

ORGANIZED RELIGION WAS

AGAINST THE LAW.

BUT SHE KNEW THERE WAS

MORE.

IT WAS AS IF I WAS

SEARCHING FOR HIM WITH MY

HEART.

I SAID, I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU

ARE, BUT PLEASE HELP ME

LEARN ABOUT YOU.

Reporter: THEN MARIANA

SAW A CARTOON ON

TELEVISION.

IT WAS CBN'S ORIGINAL

"SUPERBOOK."

THEY TALKED ABOUT GOD AND

WHO JESUS WAS.

THEY EVEN PROMISED TO ANSWER

ANYONE WHO WROTE A LETTER.

Reporter: MARIANA WROTE

TO CBN AND SOON RECEIVED A

BOOKLET THAT CHANGED HER

LIFE FOREVER.

I IMMEDIATELY UNDERSTOOD

AND BELIEVED THAT JESUS DIED

FOR ME.

THAT IS WHY I PRAYED THE

PRAYER WRITTEN IN THE

BOOKLET.

Reporter: SHE KEPT

WATCHING "SUPERBOOK"

CARTOONS TO LEARN MORE ABOUT

GOD.

NOW SHE SHOWS THE NEW

"SUPERBOOK" TO HER OWN

FAMILY.

MY KIDS ENJOY "SUPERBOOK"

VERY MUCH.

AND THEY WATCH THIS CARTOON

WITH GREAT DELIGHT.

Reporter: SHE PLANS TO-SHOW THE CARTOONS TO THE

AVENKI CHILDREN, TOO.

THAT'S WHY WE GET THE

D.V.D.s, SO I CAN SHOW

THEM TO ALL OF THE CHILDREN

HERE.

I WAS SO EXCITED WHEN I

LEARNED THEY WERE MAKING NEW

"SUPERBOOK" CARTOONS.

I SAID, THAT'S WONDERFUL.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR

THESE CARTOONS.

IT SAVED ME, AND IT MEANS A

LOT TO CHILDREN.

MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU.

Terry: WHEN BISHOP

LITTLETON WAS DEPLOYED TO

SOUTH KOREA, HIS WIFE STAYED

BEHIND WITH THEIR FOUR

CHILDREN.

MONEY IS TIGHT FOR THIS

MILITARY FAMILY.

AND IN ORDER TO PAY THE

BILLS, THEY'VE HAD TO DO

WITHOUT SOME VERY BASIC

THINGS.

Reporter: ARMY SERGEANT

BISHOP LITTLETON LOVES BEING

HOME WITH HIS FAMILY.5 EI-BUT HE

KNOWS WHEN DUTY

CALLS, HIS HOUSEHOLD RUNS

SMOOTHLY WHEN, EH?

WHENHE IS GONE, THANKS TO

HIS WIFE, LE LATICIA.

I'M SO PROUD OF HER.

THERE IS SO MUCH SHE DOES.

I DON'T REALLY HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT THE HOME WHEN I'M NOT

HOME.

Reporter: LATICIA MOVED

INTO DEPLOYMENT MODE,

KNOWING THEIR FOUR CHILDREN

RELY ON HER TO STAY STRONG.

THERE ARE FOUR FACES THAT

KEEP ME GOING.

Reporter: AT THE TIME,

THE FAMILY HAD VERY LITTLE

FURNITURE, THERE WOULD NO

KITCHEN CHAIRS, NO LIVING

ROOM FURNITURE, AND ALL FOUR

SHARED ONE BEDROOM, AND ONE

ROOM WAS EMPTY.

BUT LATICIA SAYS THEY NEVER

COMPLAINED.

THEY WANTED TO AVOID BUYING

FURNITURE ON CREDIT.

SOME PEOPLE THINK, YOU

DON'T HAVE ANY CHAIRS, AND

YOUR KIDS ARE SITTING ON THE

TABLE.

AND I DON'T FIND IT REALLY

THAT BAD BECAUSE IT'S BETTER

TO PAY OFF DEBT THAN TO HAVE

EVERYTHING AND CAN'T PAY TO

KEEP YOUR LIGHTS ON OR YOUR

CAR GOING.

Reporter: WHEN CAVALRY

CHAPEL NEWPORT NEWS, THEY

BECAME THE NEXT TO HELP THE

FAMILY.

THE COUPLE WAS TOGETHER WHEN

THEY LEARNED CBN WAS BUYING

THEM A HOUSE FULL OF

FURNITURE.

THANK YOU.

Reporter: REGGIE MASON

TOOK THE LOCAL FURNITURE

STORE.

THE OWNER, MARK CHRISTIAN,

SOLD THE FURNITURE AT COST.

THEY RECEIVED A DRESSER FOR

THEIR DAUGHTER, AND BUNK

BEDS AND A DRESSER FOR THE

TWO YOUNGEST SONS.

AND A DRESSER FOR THE OLDEST

BOY --

HE IS REALLY GOING TO

LIKE THIS.

Reporter: AND A DINETTE

FOR THEIR FAMILY.

LATICIA SAYS GOD ANSWERED

THEIR PRAYERS.

SO WHEN BISHOP RETURNS TO

KOREA FOR THE REST OF HIS

TOUR, LATICIA AND THEIR

FAMILY WILL BE COMFORTABLE.

WE DON'T GET THINGS LIKE

THIS.

IT IS AMAZING.

IT IS AMAZING.

IT IS, IT IS AMAZING.

Terry: WHILE BISHOP IS

AWAY DEFENDING OUR NATION

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORlD ASTy WE ARE ABLE TO STEP IN

THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT A TIME

WHEN THE LAND OF ISRAEL WILL

REJOICE AND BLOSSOM, AS A

ROSE.

TODAY, WITH HARD WORK AND

INNOVATION, THAT PROPHECY IS

COMING TRUE.

Gordon: IN 1867, MARK

TWAIN TOURED THE LAND OF

ISRAEL.

HERE IS HOW HE DESCRIBED IT,

"A DESOLATE COUNTRY, A

SILENT, MOURNFUL EXPANSE."

TODAY MARK TWAIN WOULDN'T

EVEN RECOGNIZE THIS LAND.

OUT OF ROCKY SOIL, ISRAELIS

HAVE CREATED GARDENS AND

FARMS WITH SOME OF THE MOST

INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES IN THE

WORLD.

Wendy: DID YOU KNOW AS

A CHILD OF GOD, YOU HAVE

ACCESS TO THOSE SAME RICH

BLESSINGS THAT GOD HAS

POURED OUT ON ISRAEL.

IT IS SUCH A MIRACLE.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEARN

RYAN ROBERTS HAD ALWAYS

DREAMED OF PLAYING

PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL, UNTIL

A KNEE INJURY TOOK HIM OUT

OF THE GAME.

AFTMR!THAT, RYAN HAD A HARD

TIME MAKING A LIVING.

AND THEN HE SAYS GOD GAVE

HIM AN IDEA THAT LED TO A

WHOLE NEW CAREER.

Reporter: RYAN ROBERTS

IS PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING

ATHLETES IMPROVE THEIR

FOOTBALL SKILLS.

HIS CLINES ARE QUARTERBACKS

THAT WANT TO GET TO THE NEXT

LEVEL.

WHEN I TRAIN A KID, I

SAY, WHAT ARE YOU DOINg OUT

HERE.

AND THEY SAY, I'M HERE TO

GET BETTER.

AND I SAY, YOU'RE NOT HERE

TO GET BETTER, YOU'RE OUT

HERE TO BE THE BEST.

Reporter: HIS SKILLS

EARNED HIM A SPOT AT BAIL

BAILOR UNIVERSITY.

AND INJURY SIDELINED HIM.

AND THEY ARE STILL FRIENDS

TODAY.

WHEN RYAN GRADUATED, HE

WONDERED WHAT HE WOULD DO

NEXT.- I WAS A CERTIFIED TEACHER

AND A COACH.

AT THAT TIME IT WAS HARD TO

GET A JOB.

AT THAT POINT, I WAS MAKING

$7 AN HOUR AT A YMCA, WITH A

MASTER'S DEGREE AND SWEEPING

FLOORS.

Reporter: RYAN MARRIED

BRITTANY, HIS HIGH SCHOOL

SWEETHEART.

AS A COUPLE, THEY TITHED.

BRITTANY WAS DOING WELL IN

HER JOB AS AN R.N., BUT RYAN

FELT Ho WASN'T DOING WELL.

AND THAT'S WHEN HE

REMEMBERED THE CONVERSATION

HE HAD WITH HIS MOM.

SHE SAID, HAVE YOU EVER

THOUGHT ABOUT COACHING.

PARENTS WOULD PAY YOU TO

TEACH THEIR SONS.

Reporter: AT FIRST HE

ONLY HAD A FEW CLIENTS.

THAT'S WHEN HE SAYS GOD

CHALLENGED HIM TO DO

SOMETHING RADICAL, TO GIVE

AWAY AN ENTIRE WEEK OF

QUARTERBACK LESSONS SO HE

WOULD HAVE A CHANCE TO SHARE

THE GOSPEL WITH HIS

CLIENTS.

THAT DECISION WOULD COST HIM

$2,000.

IT WAS A RISK ON MY END.

BUT MY MINDSET WASN'T

THERE.

I WAS, LIKE, I'M DOING THIS

FOR GOD.

Reporter: RYAN REPORTS

NEARLY EVERY KID AND EVEN A

COUPLE OF PARENTS PRAYED TO

BECOME A CHRISTIAN.

YOU CAN'T PUT INTO WORDS

WHAT THAT FELT LIKE FOR ME.

IT WAS BETTER THAN ANY

TOUCHDOWN I HAD EVER

THROWN.

Reporter: THEN

SOMETHING ELSE HAPPENED TO

WEEKEND THAT CONFIRMED WHAT

GOD HAD SPOKEN TO HIM.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, HIS

PHONE RANG.

I HAD A MESSAGE FROM

ANOTHER DAD, SAYING HIS

BUSINESS WAS ABOUT TO

EXPLODE.

Reporter: THE KELLER

ADMINISTRATION HAD SENT OUT

AN E-MAIL TO 20,000 PARENTS,

ADVERTISING RYAN.

I TRIED TO DO THAT FOR A

YEAR, BUT THEY WANTED A LOT

OF MONEY TO DO THAT.

AND FROM THAT POINT, MY

LESSONS TOOK OFF.

MY LESSONS ON SATURDAY, I'D

BE GOING STRAIGHT FROM 8:00

IN THE MORNING TO 8:00 AT

NIGHT.

THE NEXT YEAR, I BELIEVE I

HAD MY FIRST SUMMER CAMP,

WITH CLOSE TO 80 KIDS.

I HAD NEVER DONE THAT

BEFORE.

Reporter: AND HE EVEN

HELD ONE OF HIS TRAINING

CAMPS AT AT&T IN DALLAS.

I THINK YOU HAVE TO BE

OBEDIENT TO GOD'S WORD.

HE SAYS, YOU KNOW, GIVE, AND

IT WILL BE GIVEN BACK TO

YOU.

Reporter: OVER THE PAST

TWO YEARS, RYAN HAS SEEN HIS

INCOME MULTIPLY TO MORE THAN

10 TIMES WHAT IT ONCE WAS AT

THE YMCA.

HE BELIEVES HE HAS BEEN

BLESSED BECAUSE OF HIS

OBEDIeNT

HE REMEMBERS THE NIGHT HE

BECAME A CBN PARTNER.

WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO ME,

NOT AN AUDIBLE VOICE, COMING

AND SITTING ON MY COUCH, BUT

IN MY HEART, BUT HE WAS

ASKING ME TO GIVE.

BUT THAT'S WHY I DON'T

WAIT.

I IMMEDIATELY DO IT.

IF YOU WANT TO SEE GOD SHOW

UP IN A REAL, RADICAL WAY,

LIKE HE HAS IN MY LIFE, I

ENCOURAGE YOU TO GIVE.

I PROMISE YOU, IF YOU CAN

TRUST GOD WITH YOUR

FINANCES, YOU CAN TRUST HIM

IN ANY OTHER AREA OF YOUR

LIFE.

Gordon: YOU CAN TRUST

HIM WITH YOUR FINANCES.

AND WHEN YOU DO, THAT'S WHEN

THE BREAKTHROUGHS COME.

IF YOU WANT TO START DOING

THAT, GIVE US A CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

I'VE GOT SOME EXCITING

NEWS.

SOME PARTNERS FROM

ARIZONA -- FOUR OF THEM SAY,

WE WANT TO GET TOGETHER AND

ADD $39,000 TO THIS

CHALLENGE.

THAT TAKES US TO A $143,215

TO THE END OF THE HOUR.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THE PARTNERS IN

ARIZONA, AS THEY HAVE

GIVEN.

YOUR WORD OVER THEM WILL BE

TRUE, AND YOU WILL GIVE BACK

THAT SUCH A MEASURE WILL BE

HEAPED UPON THEM, PRESSED

DOWN, SHAKEN TOGETHER, AND

RUNNING OVER.

AND FOR THOSE WATCHING,

MAKING DECISIONS, ENCOURAGE

THEM.

LORD, WE PRAY SPECIFICALLY

HARDSHIPS.

TERRY?

Terry: 12-YEAR-OLD SAM

YONG WORKED HARD TO HELP HIS

FAMILY PUT FOOD ON THE

TABLE.

HE HAS ALWAYS ENJOYED

HELPING THIS MOTHER, UNTIL

ONE DAY WHEN A SIMPLE TASK

NEARLY SO"Q HIM HIS LIFE.

Reporter: 12-YEAR-OLD

SAM YONG HAS TWO JOBS HE

LOVES: TAKING CARE OF HIS

COW AND CATCHING A FEW FISH

FROM THE POND FOR THE

FAMILY'S MAIN MEAL OF THEúw

DAY.

THERE IS ANOTHER JOB HE

DREADS, GETTING WATER FROM

AN OPEN-PIT WELL.

THE WATER FROM THIS WELL

IS VERY DIRTY.

I OFTEN SEE FROGS, SNAKE

SKIN, AND GARBAGE IN IT.

BUT WE USE IT FOR

EVERYTHING.

I DON'T WANT TO DRINK THE

WATER FROM THE WELL, BUT I

HAVE NO CHOICE.

Reporter: SAM'S MOTHER

FILTERS IT AND SOMETIMES

BOILS IT, BUT THE CHILDREN

STILL GET SICK.

I REMEMBER ONE TIME I WAS

SO SICK THAT MY PARENTS HAD

TO TAKE ME TO THE HOSPITAL.

I HAD TO MISS SCHOOL FOR

THREE DAYS.

Reporter: ONE DAY SAM

ACCIDENTALLY FELL INTO THE

OPEN-PIT WELL.

I WAS VERY SCARED.

I GOT HURT WHEN I FELL, AND

I FELT SO COLD.

Reporter: SAM IS THE

ONLY CHRISTIAN IN HIS

FAMILY, AND PRAYED THAT HELP

WOULD COME.

AND THEN HIS BROTHER, WHO

HAD SEEN HIM FALL INTO THE

WELL, QUICKLY PULLED HIM OUT

WITH A ROPE.

AFTER THAT, I DIDN'T WANT

TO GO BACK TO THE WELL.

I WAS AFRAID TO FALL IN@A@A

AGAIN.@A@A

I PRAYED THAT GOD WOULD MAKE

ANOTHER WAY FOR US TO GET

WATER.

Reporter: SO SAM WAS

NEW WELL WITH A PUMP, NEAR

HIS HOME.

NOW HE, HIS FAMILY, AND HIS

WHOLE COMMUNITY HAVE FRESH,

CLEAN DRINKING WATER.

THE OPEN-PIT WELL HAS BEEN

COVERED UP, AND THERE HAVE

BEEN NO MORE ACCIDENTS.

SAM'S FAMILY WAS SO TOUCHED

BY CBN'S HELP THAT THEY,

TOO, PRAYED TO BECOME

CHRISTIANS.

I'M SO HAPPY THAT

EVERYONE IN MY FAMILY5 EI-BELIEVES IN JESUS

NOW.

THANK YOU, CBN.

Reporter: GRANDPA RAOUL

EARNS MONEY SELLING CANDY

AND BY WORKING AS A HANDYMAN

IN A NEARBY VILLA.

BUT HIS SMALL INCOME BARELY

BUYS THEM FOOD.

AFTER THE FIRE WAS NOT AN

OPTION. AND REPLACING THE

FAULTY WIRE THAT CAUSED THE

FIRE WAS ALSO IMPOSSIBLE.

I WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR

MY GRANDSON, BUT IT HAS BEEN

SO HARD.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" BOUGHT THEM NEEDED

SUPPLIES TO REPLACE THE ROOF

WE ALSO REWIRED THE HOUSE

TERRY?

Terry: AROUND THE

WORLD, CBN'S "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" IS HELPING

THOUSANDS OF AT RISK

CHILDREN WITH BASIC NEEDS,

LIKE FOOD AND SHELTER.

LIKE YOU, ONE LITTLE BOY IN

UKRAINE WOULD HAVE BEEN

BLIND FOR THE REST OF HIS

LIFE.

BANIA WAS BORN WITH CROSSED

EYES.

BECAUSE OF HIS DISABILITY,

HIS PARENTS SENT HIM AWAY TO

AN ORPHANAGE.

I'VE HAD BAD EYES ALL MY

LIFE.

IT IS HARD TO SEE WITH

CROSSED EYES, AND IT IS HARD

TO DO HOMEWORK, TOO.

Terry: WITHOUT TREATING

HIS CROSSED EYES, BANIA

WOULD EVENTUALLY GO BLIND IN

ONE EYE.

I'M SCARED OF GOING

BLIND.

I DREAM THAT ONE DAY I WILL

LOOK NORMAL AND HAVE GOOD

EYESIGHT.

THEN MAYBE I WILL HAVE SOME

FRIENDS.

Terry: A SIMPLE SURGERY

WOULD HELP BANIA, BUT THE

ORPHANAGE DIDN'T HAVE THE

MONEY FOR IT.

THE GOVERNMENT BARELY

GIVES ENOUGH MONEY FOR FOOD

AND CLOTHING FOR THE

CHILDREN.

THEY WOULD NEVER PAY FOR

THAT KIND OF SURGERY.

Terry:

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" HAS BEEN

SUPPORTING THIS ORPHANAGE

FOR YEARS AND TELLING THE

KIDS ABOUT GOD'S LOVE.

IN TIME, BANIA TRUSTED GOD

WITH HIS DREAM.

I PRAYED AND ASKED FOR MY

EYES TO BE STRAIGHT, LIKE

EVERYONE ELSE'S.

Terry: WHEN I MET

BANIA, I KNEW HE NEEDED

SURGERY.

WE PAID FORE OPERATION.

AND WITHIN A FEW WEEKS, HIS

LIFE WAS DRASTICALLY

CHANGED.

I SEE VERY WELL NOW.

I CAN EVEN DO MY HOMEWORK,

TOO.

YOU HAVE HELP OUR

CHILDREN SO MUCH OVER THE

YEARS.

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING,

ESPECIALLY FOR PROVIDING

SURGERY FOR BANIA.

MY EYES ARE NICE AND

STRAIGHT NOW.

I CAN SEE VERY WELL AND I

HAVE LOTS OF FRIENDS.

Terry: YOU KNOW, IN

MANY COUNTRIES, WHEN A CHILD

HAS SOME KIND OF A PHYSICAL

PROBLEM, THE PARENTS FEEL

OVERWHELMED.

HAY HAVE NTHEY HAVE NO

MONEY TO TREAT IT, AND THE

CHILD IS TAKEN TO AN

ORPHANAGE.

THIS LITTLE BOY HAS A HOPE

AND A FUTURE BECAUSE YOU

STEPPED IN TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

HE IS NOT GOING TO LOSE HIS

EYESIGHT.

HE HAS GOT FRIENDS.

HE HAS SELF-ESTEEM NOW, AND

HE IS BEING TAUGHT HOW TO

HOPE AND DREAM FOR HIS

FUTURE.

WE ARE CBN'S OUTREACH TO THE

CHILDREN OF THE WORLD.

SO CALL RIGHT NOW.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IT'S YOU WHO MAKE THIS KIND

OF EFFORT POSSIBLE.

AND WE SAY THANK YOU ON

BEHALF OF BANIA AND OTHERS

LIKE HIM.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

1-800-759-0700.

CALL NOW AND KNOW THAT AS

YOU COMMIT, YOU ARE HAVING

YOUR GIFT DOUBLED RIGHT AT

THIS MOMENT.

SO WE NEED TO HEAR FROM

YOU.

GORDON?

Gordon: IT DOESN'T TAKE

TOO MUCH TO START A SMALL

BUSINESS -- IN FACT, FOR ONE

FAMILY ALL IT TOOK WAS A

PAIR OF GOATS.

Reporter: ZINA AND HER

HUSBAND RAISE LIVESTOCK TO

SUPPORT THEIR FAMILY IN

WESTERN INDIANA.

BUT THEN ZINA AND HER

CHILDREN GOT VERY SICK.

THEY SOLD EVERYTHING THEY

OWNED, INCLUDING THEIR

ANIMALS, TO PAY FOR MEDICINE

AND WITCH DOCTORS.

I THOUGHT MY DOCTORS

WOULD HAVE TO STOP GOING TO

SCHOOL AND WORK AS DAY

LABORERS SO WE COULD

SURVIVE.

Reporter: THAT'S WHEN

THEY HEARD ABOUT JESUS

CHRIST FROM A LOCAL PASTOR.

MY FAMILY AND I LEARNED

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST.

WE PRAYED TO HIM, AND HE

HEALED MY FAMILY AND ME.

AND THEN WE PRAYED THAT

JESUS WOULD HELP US WITH OUR

FINANCES.

Reporter: CBN FOUND OUT

ABOUT ZINA AND HER FAMILY
