MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT

STORY FROM

WASHINGTON, JOHN.

REPORTER: HAIL, HIGH WINDS

FROM NEW YORK TO

VIRGINIA.

TORNADO TOUCHED DOWN WEST OF

ALBANY DESTROYING SEVERAL HOMES,

TREES POWER LINES AND EVEN

KNOCKED OVER THIS TRACTOR

TRAILER.

AS SOON AS WE GOT TO THE

HOUSE THERE IS HAIL THE SIZE OF

GOLF BALLS.

WE SAW ALL OF OUR CARS.

MY BACK WINDSHIELD, SUNROOF, ALL

SHATTERED.

COLORADO RESIDENTS SAW MORE

STORMS BRINGING HAIL, FLING AND

TORNADOS.

HERE IN WASHINGTON, THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES HAS PASSED A

MEASURE THAT WILL END THE

NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY'S BULK

COLLECTION OF THE PHONE RECORDS.

THE FINAL VERSION OF THE BILL

WAS WEAKENED BECAUSE THE

SURVEILLANCE PROGRAMS ARE A

CRITICAL SAFEGUARD AGAINST

TERRORIST PLOTS.

THE WHOLE DEBATE OVER PRIVACY

VERSES SECURITY.

THREE STATES LAUNCHED AN

INVESTIGATION FROM THEFT,

CONNECTICUT, ILLINOIS AND

FLORIDA ARE WORKING TO FIND OUT

HOW CUSTOMERS GOT PASS WORDS,

E-MAIL ADDRESSES AND BIRTHDAYS.

EBAY SAYS NO CREDIT CARD NUMBERS

ARE FINANCIAL DATA STOLEN.

THE E COMMERCE COMPANY ADVICED

THEM TO CHANGED THEIR PASSWORDS

BUT YOU CAN IMAGINE THEY ARE

UPSET.

GORDAN: THIS IS BIGGER THAN

THE TARGET BREECH OVER THE

CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS.

YES THE DATA WAS STOLEN.

YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR CREDIT CARD

NUMBERS AND NOTIFY YOUR BANK YOU

HAVE BEEN COMPROMISED.

YOU CAN'T GET A NEW BIRTH DATE

AND ADDRESS EASILY.

THIS IS A DATA THEFT THAT CAN

LEAD TO IDENTITY THEFT.

MAKE SURE YOU CHANGE YOUR

PASSWORD, WE'LL BE

RIGHT BACK

AFTER THIS.

GORDAN: ON HER WEDDING DAY,

DANA IMAGINED A WONDERFUL LIFE

WITH HER NEW HUSBAND.

SHE NEVER DREAMED 15 YEARS LATER

SHE WOULD HAVE NO MONEY AND NO

JOB.

HER DREAMS OF LIVING HAPPILY

EVER AFTER, HER HUSBAND WITH

CONVICTED OF FORGERY.

IT LEFT ME IN A STATE OF

SHOCK AND HOPELESSNESS.

I HAVE DEPENDED ON HIM.

HE WAS SENTENCED TO TEN YEARS

IN PRISON.

THEY DIVORCED, FOR THE FIRST

TIME DANA AND HER GIRLS WERE ON

THEIR OWN.

THAT LEFT ME WITH NOTHING.

I HAD NO EXPERIENCE, NO

EDUCATION.

I HAD NO ABILITY OR SO I THOUGHT

TO TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING ON MY

OWN.

I WAS DEVASTATED AND RAN AWAY

FROM GOD FOR A WHILE.

SHE WORKED ODD JOBS AND

DIDN'T MAKE MUCH MONEY.

I COULDN'T BUY GROCERIES AND

ANYTHING DIRT CHEAP.

I FELT DESTITUTE AT THAT TIME.

ONE DAY THEY WERE WATCHING

TV.

EVERYTHING WAS OFF BE THE TV.

I TRIED TO FLIP THE BREAKERS AND

HIT THE SWITCH A FEW TIMES.

CAME BACK DOWN, SAT DOWN,

PRESSED THE POWER ON THE REMOTE,

WHEN I TURNED IT ON, IT WAS "THE

700 CLUB" ON.

I PROMISE YOU, THAT IS NOT WHAT

WE WERE WATCHING AT ALL.

OKAY.

WHEN I TURNED IT ON, A LADY

SAID, I WANT YOU TO KNOW YOU CAN

TRUST THE LORD WITH YOUR

FINANCES.

I LOOKED AT HER AND I THOUGHT,

OH MY GOSH.

GOD IS STILL LOOKING AFTER ME.

I GOT ON THE PHONE, CALLED THE

NUMBER ON THE SCREEN.

THE LADY PRAYED WITH ME AND I

WOULD GET A REGULAR JOB, STEADY

INCOME, I CAME A PARTNER AND

DECIDED TO START TITHING.

A FEW WEEKS LATER SHE GOT A

JOB AS AN ACTIVITY DIRECTOR AT A

HOME FOR CITIZENS.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED DOING IT.

I WAS HIRING PEOPLE TO DO WHAT I

WAS DOING.

THAT WAS A PIVOTAL MOMENT IN GOD

RESCUING ME.

PULLING ME BACK.

DANA REMARRIED, TODAY SHE AND

HUSBAND TRUST GOD WITH MARRIAGE,

CHILDREN AND FINANCES.

DANA THANKS GOD FOR THE MANY

BLESSINGS IN HER LIFE.

IT WAS A GIFT FROM GOD TO

HELP ME OUT.

HE SHOWED ME HE HAS GOT MY BACK

TAKING CARE OF ME.

GORDAN: HE HAS YOUR BACK AND

WANTS TO TAKE CARE OF YOU WITH

YOU WILL LET HIM.

HERE IS THE PROMISE IT IS FOR

DANA, FOR YOU, ANYONE WHO WILL

DO THE SAME THING, IT IS FROM

PSALMS 50.

CALL UPON ME IN THE DAY OF

TROUBLE, I WILL DELIVER YOU AND

YOU SHALL GLORIFY ME.

DANA MADE A DECISION, I AM GOING

TO TRUST THE LORD WITH MY

FINANCES.

SHE IS FEELING DESTITUTE,

WONDERING HOW AM I GOING TO MAKE

IT ON RAMEN NOODLES.

HE'LL SHOW UP IF YOU IF YOU DO

THE SAME.

NOT LONG AGO LATISHA WAS ON

UNEMPLOYMENT AND SHE MADE A

DECISION AND HER FUN WAS RINGING

WITH JOBS.

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 HAPPY WITH MYSELF AT THE

TIME.

VERY UNSURE.

IN THE BACK OF MY MIND I KNEW

GOD WOULD PROVIDE.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW.

I WAS LOOKING AT MY MESS SAYING

HOW CAN YOU HELP US HERE AND

NOW?

THIS IS TOO MUCH.

THIS IS TOO MUCH.

AS SHE SCRAPED BY ON HER

SAVINGS AND UNEMPLOYMENT CHECKS,

THE BILLS BECAME UNBEARABLE.

FOOD WAS SCARCE IN THE HOUSE

SOMETIMES.

WE BECAME BEST FRIENDS WITH THE

PEANUT AND BUTTER SANDWICH.

SHE TITHED FAITHFULLY TO HER

CHURCH, SOMETHING SHE STARTED

MONTHS AGO.

WHY WOULD I STOP NOW, WHETHER

I AM GOING TO TITHE FROM MY

WAGES OR UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS

OR A RANDOM CHECK IN THE MAIL.

I AM GOING TO GIVE GOD WHAT I

SAID I WOULD GIVE HIM.

IT CAME FROM SOMETHING SHE

LEARNED AT CHURCH.

THEY TAUGHT A BASIC PRINCIPLE

ABOUT SOWING.

GOD IS LOOKING FOR YOUR

OBEDIEN

OBEDIENCE.

SHORTLY AFTER HER PHONE BEGAN

TO RING.

EVERY TIME IT WAS A DIFFERENT

EMPLOYER LOOKING FOR AN

INTERVIEW.

SOON SHE WAS READY FOR THE

NEXT STEP, SHE INCREASED HER

GIVING.

ONE DAY HER SUPERVISOR CAME TO

HER.

SHE HANDS ME A FOLDED UP

SHEET OF PAPER WITH A JOB

POSITION.

I THOUGHT IT WAS ODD MY CURRENT

SUPERVISOR WAS SHOWING ME

ANOTHER JOB.

SHE SAID I BELIEVE YOU HAVE

ABUNDANT POTENTIAL.

SHE APPLIED FOR THE JOB,

THREE WEEKS LATER...

I WAS DRIVING TO MY

DAUGHTER'S SCHOOL WHEN I

RECEIVED THE PHONE CALL.

IT IS THE HR DIRECTOR FROM THE

DREAM JOB.

HE SAID I DON'T WANT TO TAKE

MUCH MORE OF YOUR TIME.

CAN YOU 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 A 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 DIDN'T HAVE ANY OTHER

RESOURCE.

THIS IS QUOTED, LUKE 6:38, GIVE

AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU,

IN GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN,

SHAKEN TOGETHER AND RUNNING OVER

BY UNTIL THEIR NEWBORN DAUGHTER

NEEDED AN EXPENSIVE OPERATION.

WHEN SHOUYON FOUND OUT SHE

WAS GOING TO HAVE A SISTER SHE

COULDN'T WAIT.

I WAS SURE SHE WOULD LOOK

LIKE A BEAUTIFUL DOLL.

SHE WAS WRONG.

MY SISTER WAS BORN WITH A

CLEFT LIP AND PALATE.

IT DIDN'T ONLY EFFECT HER

APPEARANCE BUT ALSO STUNTED HER

GROWTH.

SHE COUGHED AND CHOKED WHEN I

TRIED TO FEED HER.

SHE WAS MALNOURISHED.

HOW WOULD SHE EVER MARRY LOOKING

LIKE THIS?

THEY NEEDED CLEFT LIP AND

PALATE SURGERY BUT THEY ARE

FARMERS AND LIVE ON $310 A YEAR.

I WAS CONSTANTLY DEPENDENT ON

THE MONEY.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO HELP

MY BABY.

I WAS WOR RID.

I PRESENTED TO BE OKAY.

MY EYES WERE ALWAYS RED FROM

CRYING.

NO ONE THEY ASKED COULD HELP.

THEN THEY HEARD ABOUT CBN.

WE ARRANGED FOR FREE SURGERY.

I WAS SO HAPPY I JUMPED

REALLY HIGH.

THE CLEFT LIP AND PALATE

SURGERY MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN

HER LIFE.

SHE IS LIKE A NEW GIRL.

SHE LOOKS LIKE A PRINCESS WITH

THE HAIR PIN I GAVE HER AND THE

BEAUTIFUL SMILE FROM CBN.

NOW SHE HAS GAINED WEIGHT.

SHE WILL BE A I BELIEVE TO GO TO

SCHOOL, FIND A JOB AND GET

MARRIED.

I DO NOT NEED TO WORRY ABOUT

HER FUTURE ANYMORE.

HELP.

GORDAN.

GORDAN: FOR MONTHS,

NINE-YEAR-OLD LIAM HAS BEEN

SAVING SPARE CHANGE TO BUY A NEW

BIKE.

YET WHEN HE HAD ENOUGH SAVED UP,

LIAM CHANGED HIS MIND AND SPENT

THE MONEY ON PEOPLE HE HAD NEVER

MET.

NINE-YEAR-OLD LIAM DEGRAPH OF

VERMONT IS INTO ANYTHING THAT

MOVES.

HE IS ESPECIALLY HANDY WITH HIS

ATV.

HE LOVES CARS AND VEHICLES.

WHEN HE WAS TWO, I CAUGHT HIM

PULLING TIRES OFF OF HIS ATV.

HE HAD IT ON JACKS.

RIGHT NOW, LIAM HAS HIS EYES

ON A SPECIAL DIRT BIKE.

125 CCS AND WANT IT TO BE

BLUE AND I WANT TO DO TRICK.

S.

HE DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING

ELSE WITH HIS MONEY.

HIS MOTHER TAUGHT HIM ABOUT

TITHING WHEN HE WAS THREE.

SHE SAID THE BIBLE SAYS GIVE

10% TO GOD IT WILL KEEP US

HUMBLE AND IT IS STEALING FROM

GOD IF WE DON'T TITHE.

HIS MOTHER HAS TITHED EVEN

WHEN SHE WAS A COLLEGE STUDENT

RAISING HER SON.

THE LORD IS FAITHFUL AND WILL

PROVIDE ALL OUR NEEDS.

MY MOM SAID IT IS IMPORTANT

TO GIVE TO THE WORD OF THE

SPIRIT.

I DECIDED I WANTED TO TITHE TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

AS A SINGLE MOM, IT IS NEAT

TO PULL IN OTHER GODLY MEN, EVEN

IF IT IS THROUGH TV.

AFTER CHORES AND SIDE JOBS,

LIAM HAD $70 TO GIVE.

I WAS HOPING IT TO GO TO SOME

KID IN NEED IN ASIA OR IN

ANOTHER COUNTRY FOR FOOD OR

WAT

WATER.

EVERY TIME I TITHE, GOD HAS

GIVEN ME MORE OPPORTUNITY

WHEREAS WHEN YOU DON'T TITHE,

YOU DON'T GET THAT OTHER

OPPORTUNITY.

RECENTLY, LIAM GOT A BIG

CHECK FOR HELPING OUT AT HIS

MOM'S OFFICE.

HE'LL HAVE THAT DREAM BIKE.

TAKE IT FROM HIM, TITHING WORKS.

HE IS ALREADY SAVING FOR HIS

NEXT MONEY ORDER RUN.

I WOULD LIKE TO TITHE MY

WHOLE LIFE.

GOD HAS BEEN GOOD TO ME.

I WOULD LIKE TO BE GOOD TO HIM

THE REST OF MY LIFE.

HE SAID TO TITHE 10%.

HE IS PERFECT AND ALWAYS TELLS

THE TRUTH.

WHY SHOULDN'T WE.

GORDAN: PSALMS 37:21, THE

GODLY ARE GENEROUS GIVERS.

HE SAVED UP MONEY FOR A BIKE.

HE SAID I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

I WANT TO HELP OTHERS.

I WANT TO HELP OTHERS I HAVEN'T

MET.

I WANT TO HELP THEM AND BE A

PART OF WHAT GOD IS DOING IN THE

WORLD TODAY.

HIS WIFE SET A GOAL TO PAY OFF

HALF A MILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF

DEBT IN ONE YEAR.

HERE IS HOW THEY DID IT AND HOW

THAT SAME PRINCIPLE CAN WORK FOR

YOU.

KEITH AND ELLEA THOMPSON

ENJOY LIVING ON THEIR FAMILY'S

RANCH IN EL PASO, TEXAS.

I LOVE THE PEACE OF THE OUT

DOORS, YOU GET AWAY FROM THE

CITY OF A DAY OF WORK AND WATCH

THE QUAIL RUN.

THEY LOVE THE PEACE OF MIND

TO BECOME COMPLETELY DEBT FREE.

WHEN MY HUSBAND AND I READ IN

THE BIBLE, WE SHOULD OWE NO MAN

ANYTHING.

THAT SPARKED HIS DESIRE TO BE

COMPLETELY OUT OF DEBT.

THE COUPLE WAS TRYING TO PAY

OFF 26 RENTAL PROPERTIES, THEY

OWED OVER $450,000.

PAYING OFF THAT DEBT WOULD TAKE

YEARS.

THE WAY I THOUGHT THE FIGURES

WERE, WE WOULD BE IN OUR 60S.

THEN KEITH REMEMBERED THE

STORIES ON "THE 700 CLUB."

I HAVE HEARD AND SEEN

MIRACLES ON TV SHOWING DEBTS

PAID DOWN.

MY HUSBAND SAID THERE IS NO

REASON WE CAN'T BELIEVE WE WILL

BE OUT OF DEBT.

THOMPSONS COMMITTED TO

PRAYING AND READING THEIR BIBLE

DAILY AND CONTINUE TITHING.

IN FACT THEY INCREASED TO THEIR

CHURCH AND CBN.

MONEY STARTED COMING IN.

EVERYTHING I TOOK I APPLIED TO

PAY OFF LOANS.

THEY DECIDED TO SELL THEIR

HOME.

APPRAISAL CAME IN $100,000 LESS

THAN WHAT THEY WERE ASKING.

THEY HAD FAITH IT WOULD SELL.

LESS THAN A MONTH LATER, IT DID.

THE LORD BROUGHT IN SOMEBODY

THAT REALLY WANTED THE HOUSE.

THAT WAS A MIRACLE THAT WE GOT

OUR ASKING PRICE AT 100,000 MORE

THAN THE APPRAISED PRICE.

KEITH AND ELLEA PAID OFF ALL

THEIR DEBT IN LESS THAN A YEAR.

FINANCIAL FREEDOM.

PENSECOLA, FLORIDA WAS HIT BY

RECORD BREAKING RAINS.

FLASH FLOODS THROUGH THE CITY

OPERATION BLESSING IS IN

PENSECOLA HELPING PEOPLE LIKE

TONY AND NANCY HUNTER REBUILD

WHEN A HISTORIC FLASH FLOOD

HIT PENSECOLA, FLORIDA, MANY

FAMILIES LOST EVERYTHING THEY

WHEN I SAW THE HOUSE THE NEXT

MORNING, IT WAS DEVASTATING,

WATER EVERYWHERE, DIRT

EVERYWHERE.

NANCY AND TONY HUNTER BOTH

SERVE OTHERS WORKING AS NURSES.

THEY HAVE INSURANCE BUT ONLY

COVERS HALF OF WHAT THEY LOST.

THEY NEEDED TO GUT THEIR HOME

BEFORE MOLD SET IN.

THEY HAD NO ONE TO HELP THEM.

I FELTED LIKE IT WAS GOING TO

TAKE US WEEKS AND MONTHS TO BE

ABLE TO GO THROUGH EVERYTHING.

IT WAS MORE THAN WANTING TO RUN

AND HIDE BECAUSE IT WAS

OVERWHELMING.

I AM NOT A YOUNG MAN ANYMORE.

IF I HAD TO FACE THIS ON MY OWN,

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN PRETTY

DIFFICULT.

THAT IS WHEN OPERATION

BLESSING ARRIVED WITH DOZENS OF

VOLUME FEAR -- VOLUNTEERS.

THEY IMMEDIATELY GOT TO WORK.

BODY OF CHRIST IS SUPPOSED TO

BE THERE FOR EACH OTHER, YOU

WERE.

WE TORE OUT DRY WALL AND WET

CARPET BEFORE MOLD SET IN AND

TOOK TIME TO PRAY WITH THE

FAMILY.

TONY SAYS IN SPITE OF OF ALL

GORDAN?

GORDAN: CBN'S ANIMATED

PROGRAM "SUPERBOOK" IS

INTRODUCING STORIES OF THE BIBLE

TO CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD.

IT IS REACHING THE FARTHEST

CORNERS OF THE EARTH LIKE THIS

REMOTE VILLAGE IN EASTERN

RUSSIA.

RICK AND MARY ANNA ARE

MISSIONARIES NOT FAR FROM ARCTIC

CIRCLE.

THEY WORK WITH THE PEOPLE GROUP

KNOWN AS EVANKI.

MOST FATHERS WORK FAR FROM HOME

RAISING REINDEER AND THE MOTHERS

TAKE CARE OF THE HOME AND THE

KIDS ARE LEFT ALONE.

I KNOW HOW MUCH THEY NEED

LOVE.

MARRIANNA KNOWS SHARING THE

GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST IS

IMPORTANT.

SHE HERSELF GREW UP NEVER

HEARING ABOUT GOD BECAUSE IN THE

SOVIET UNION, PRACTICING ANY

ORGANIZED RELIGION WAS

FORBIDDEN.

MARRIANNA KNEW THERE WAS MORE.

IT WAS LIKE I WAS SEARCHING

FOR HIM WITH MY -- IT WAS

CBN'S ORIGINAL "SUPERBOOK."

THEY TALKED ABOUT ABOUT GOD

AND ABOUT WHO JESUS WAS.

THEY EVEN PROMISED TO SEND A

BOOKLET TO ANYONE WHO WROTE A

LETTER.

MARRIANNA SOON RECEIVED A

BOOKLET THAT CHANGED HER LIFE

FOREVER.

I IMMEDIATELY UNDERSTOOD THAT

JESUS DIED FOR ME.

I PRAYED THE PRAYER IN THE

BOOKLET.

MARRIANNA KEPT WATCHING

CARTOONS, SHE SHOWS THE NEW

"SUPERBOOK" TO HER OWN FAMILY.

MY KIDS ENJOYED "SUPERBOOK"

VERY MUCH AND ENJOYED THIS

CARTOON WITH GREAT DELIGHT.

SHE PREPARES TO SHOW THEM TO

THE EVANKI CHILDREN.

I WAS SO EXCITED WHEN I

LEARNED THEY WERE MAKING NEW

"SUPERBOOK" CARTOONS.

I THINK THAT IS WONDERFUL.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR THIS

CARTOON.

IT SAVED ME AND MEANS A LOT.

MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU.

GORDAN: THANK YOU, IF YOU ARE

A MEMBER OF THE "THE 700 CLUB,"

GORDAN: AS A FREELANCE

PHOTOGRAPHER, JOHN JACKSON WAS

DROWNING IN DEBT.

HE HAD TO SELL HIS CAR TO PAY

HIS BILLS.

$25 A MONTH.

SOON AFTER, GOD PROMPTED HIM TO

GIVE $84 A MONTH.

JOHN RESISTED.

HIS CAR NEEDED EXPENSIVE REPAIRS

AND HAD TO SELL IT AT A LOSS TO

MAKE ENDS MEET.

LORD, I AM TIRED OF THIS,

WHAT IS NEXT?

AGAIN YOU NEED TO GIVE, PLEDGE

EXPRESS, THIS IS HOW MUCH.

HE WAS SPECIFIC.

FINALLY JOHN INCREASED PLEDGE

TO $84 A MONTH.

WHEN I MADE UP MY MIND TO DO

IT, THAT IS WHEN THE PROMOTION

STARTED COMING.

I RECENTLY GOD PROMOTED TO STORE

MANAGER.

THAT WELL OVER DOUBLED MY PAY.

IN ADDITION TO HIS PROMOTION,

JOHN SAW GOD AT WORK IN OTHER

WAYS, HIS PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS

TOOK OFF.

I AM GETTING MORE HITS ON MY

WEBSITE.

MORE THAN DOUBLED, MORE THAN

TRIPLED.

I FOUND A CAR, EXCELLENT

CONDITION FOR $2200.

BLUE BOOK SAID IT WAS WORTH

$3,800.

IN PART FROM WATCHING "THE 700

I HEAR CBN TALK ABOUT IT ALL

THE TIME, THEY USE THE

SCRIPTURE, YOU SOW SPARINGLY,

YOU'LL REAP ABUNDANTLY, IF YOU

AND GARBAGE.

I HAVE NO CHOICE.

HIS MOTHER FILTERS IT AND

BOILS IT, THEY STILL GET SICK.

I REMEMBER ONE TIME, I WAS SO

SICK MY PARENTS HAD TO TAKE ME

TO THE HOSPITAL AND MISS SCHOOL

THREE DAYS.

ONE DAY HE FELL INTO THE OPEN

WELL.

I WAS VERY SCARED.

I WAS SO COLD. HE IS THE ONLY

CHRISTIAN AND HOPED HELP WOULD

COME.

HIS BROTHER HELPED HIM OUT WITH

THE ROPE.

NEW AFTER THAT I DIDN'T WANT TO

GO BACK TO THE WELL.

I PRAYED GOD WOULD MAKE ANOTHER

WAY FOR US TO GET WATER.

HE WAS VERY EXCITED WHEN CBN

DUG A NEW WELL WITH A PUMP NEAR

HIS HOME.

HE, HIS FAMILY AND WHOLE

COMMUNITY HAVE FRESH CLEAN

DRINKING WATER.

THE OPEN PIT WELL COVERED UP AND

NO MORE ACCIDENTS.

HIS FAMILY WAS SO TOUCHED BY

CBN'S HELP, THEY TOO PRAYED TO

BECOME CHRISTIANS.

I AM SO HAPPY EVERYONE IN MY

FAMILY BELIEVES IN JESUS NOW.

THANK YOU, CBN.

TERRY: THAT IS THE SMILE

SUCH A PRECIOUS COMMODITY AND

BEING ABLE TO STAND UNDERNEATH

WATER PROVIDED IN ABUNDANCE?

ALL OF THAT IS A PRIVILEGE.

IT IS ALSO HELP AS YOU CAN SEE.

WHEN BISHOP LITTLETON DEPLOYED

TO SOUTH KOREA, HIS WIFE STAYED

BEHIND WITH THIS MILITARY

FAMILY.

THEY HAVE HAD TO DO WITHOUT

BASIC THINGS.

ARMY SERGEANT BISHOP

LITTLETON LOVES TO BE HOME WITH

HIS FAMILY.

HIS HOUSE HOLD RUNS SMOOTHLY

WHEN HE IS GONE THANKS TO HIS

WIFE KEYSHA.

I AM VERY PROUD OF HER, SO

MUCH SHE DOES, BILLS.

WHEN BISHOP LEFT IN FOR SOUTH

KOREA, SHE MOVED INTO DEPLOYMENT

MODE KNOWING THEIR FOUR CHILDREN

RELIED ON HER.

IT IS FOUR FACES, THAT IS

WHAT KEEPS ME GOING.

AT THE TIME THE FAMILY HAD

VERY LITTLE FURNITURE, NO

KITCHEN CHAIR, NO LIVING ROOM

FURNITURE, ALL FOUR KIDS SHARED

ONE DRESSER, ONE BEDROOM EMPTY.

WHAT FURNITURE THEY DID HAVE WAS

BROKEN.

THEY WANTED TO AVOID BUYING

FURNITURE ON CREDIT.

SOME PEOPLE SAY YOU DON'T

HAVE ACCOUNTS TO SIT ON OR

CHAIRS FOR YOUR KIDS.

I DON'T FIND IT THAT BAD.

IT IS BETTER TO PAY OFF DEBT

THAN HAVE EVERYTHING AND CAN'T

PAY TO KEEP YOUR LIFE GOING.

WHEN CALVARY CHAPEL CONTACTED

CBN NEWS, THEY HELPED PAY FOR

HIS FLIGHT BACK WHEN HE CAME

HOME FOR LEAVE.

THE COUPLE WAS TOGETHER WHEN

THEY LEARNED CBN WAS BUYING THEM

A HOUSEFUL OF FURNITURE.

CALVARY CHAPEL TOOK THEM TO THE

STORE, OWNER SOLD IT AT COST.

THEY RECEIVED A DRESSER FOR

THEIR DAUGHTER, BUNK BEDS,

MATTRESSES AND DRESSER FOR THEIR

SONS AND BEDROOM FURN FOR THE

OLDEST BOY, DINET AND FAMILY

ROOM FURNITURE.

THIS IS MIND BLOWING.

OUR GOD IS AWESOME.

WHEN BISHOP RETURNS FOR THE

REST OF HIS TOUR, KEYSHA AND

CHILDREN WILL BE MUCH MORE

COMFORTABLE ON THE HOME FRONT.

IT IS AMAZING.

IT IS, IT IS AMAZING.

GORDAN: WE WANT TO HELP

PEOPLE.

ESPECIALLY, I AM THRILLED WITH

THIS NEW HELPING THE HOME FRONT

REALIZING THE FAMILIES OF OUR

MEN AND WOMEN IN MILITARY

SERVICE, THEY ARE SERVING, TOO.

IT IS A HARDSHIP.

NOT ONLY IS THE MILITARY PAY

LOW.

YOU ARE DEALING WITH A

SITUATION, FAMILIES HAVE ONE OF

THE PARENTS GONE FOR EXTENDED

TOURS OF DUTY.

WE WANT TO HELP THEM AND HONOR

THEIR SERVICE BECAUSE THEY ARE

SERVING, TOO.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

THAT, JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

$20 A MONTH 65 CENTS A DAY. YOU

JOIN WITH TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE THAT WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

WE ARE CLOSING IN ON VICTORY

WITH 3:09 TO GO.

WE ARE GETTING HELP FROM

MIDLAND, VIRGINIA, SOWING

GENEROUSLY, $12,000.

THAT TAKES US TO $21,000.

LET'S GO TO WENDY.

WENDY: I JUST OFF THE PHONE

WITH LOREN FROM JACKSONVILLE,

FLORIDA.

SHE SAID THIS MORNING, I WOKE

UP, WE TURNED ON "THE 700 CLUB"

AND LOOKED AT EACH OTHER, GOD

HAS BEEN WHETHER HE SAYING US SO

MUCH.

WE ARE GOING TO GO UP TO THE

GOLD LEVEL AT $40 A MONTH AND

SEE WHAT GOD DOES NEXT.

I KNOW GOD IS GETTING READY TO

BLESS YOUR SOCKS OFF.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LIVE UNDER

THE BLESSINGS OF GOD?

YOU CAN FIND OUT IN OUR NEW DVD

FROM PAT AND GORDAN ROBERTSON.

THIS IS OUR GIFT WHEN YOU

CALL RIGHT NOW, TERRY?

TERRY: AROUND THE WORLD,

CBN'S ORPHAN'S PROMISE IS

HELPING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

AT-RISK CHILDREN WITH BASIC

NEEDS LIKE FOOD AND SHELTER.

WE ARE ALSO HELPING THEM GET THE

MEDICAL CARE THEY NEED.

WITHOUT HELP FROM YOU, ONE

LITTLE BOY WOULD HAVE BEEN BLIND

THE REST OF HIS LIFE.

VONYA WAS BORN WITH CROSSED

EYES.

BECAUSE OF HIS DISABILITY, HIS

PARENTS SENT HIM TO AN

ORPHANAGE.

I HAVE HAD CROSSED EYES ALL

MY LIFE AND HARD TO DO HOMEWORK.

WITHOUT TREATING HIS CROSSED

EYES, HE WOULD EVENTUALLY GO

BLIND IN ONE EYE.

I AM SCARED OF GOING BLIND.

I DREAM I WILL LOOK NORMAL AND

HAVE GOOD EYE SIGHT.

THEN MAYBE I WOULD HAVE FRIENDS.

A SIMPLE SURGERY WOULD HELP

VON

VONYA --

ORPHAN'S PROMISE HAS BEEN

SUPPORTING THIS ORPHANAGE FOR

YEARS AND TELLING THE KIDS ABOUT

GOD'S LOVE.

IN TIME, VONYA TRUSTED GOD WITH

HIS DREAM.

I PRAYED FOR MY EYES TO BE

STRAIGHT LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE'S.

WE PAID FOR THE OPERATION,

WITHIN A FEW WEEKS, HIS LIFE WAS

DRASTICALLY DIFFERENT.

I SEE VERY WELL NOW, I CAN

READ AND DO MY HOMEWORK, TOO.

YOU HAVE HELPED OUR CHILDREN

SO MUCH, THANK YOU FOR PROVIDING

THIS SURGERY.

MY EYES ARE NICE AND STRAIGHT

NOW.

I CAN SEE VERY WELL AND HAVE

LOTS OF FRIENDS, THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

GORDAN: GLORIOUS NEWS,
