The 700 Club - May 8, 2015

Scott did something that helped him advance his career and increase his salary - and you can too! Also, 13-year-old Krishna desperately needed heart surgery Read Transcript


Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

ISIS IS USING SOCIAL MEDIA

TO RECRUIT AMERICANS FOR

DEADLY TERRORIST ATTACKS.

AND THE F.B.I. SAYS THEY

CAN'T TRACK EVERY POST.

Terry: THAT WARNING

COMES AFTER THIS WEEK'S

SHOOTING IN TEXAS.

AND THE GOVERNMENT SAYS

THERE COULD BE MORE

ATTACKS.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THE STORY.

Efrem: ELTON SIMPSON

AND NADIR SOOFI ARE THE

ROOMMATES BEHIND THE TEXAS

TERROR ATTACK, AND THE

NUESTRO FACES OF HOMEGROWN

TERRORISM.

THE DIRECTOR OF THE F.B.I.

SAYS YOUNG RECRUITS LIKE

THEM ARE BEING DRAWN IN BY

ISIS' SLICK ONLINE

MESSAGES.

*

Efrem: THE TERRORISTS

ARE USING HIP-HOP MUSIC,

PRODUCTIONS THAT MIMIC THE

POPULAR GRAND THEFT AUDO

VIDEO GAME, IMAGES OF

HANDSOME FIGHTERS, AND

PROMISES OF HOMES AND

SECURITY TO SELL A FALSE

VERSION OF LIFE UNDER ISIS

RULE.

YOUR SPEAKING TO THEM IN

A LANGUAGE THEY UNDERSTAND,

VIDEO, MOVING IMAGERY AND

MUSIC.

PEOPLE DO WANT TO BELONG TO

TRIBES.

THIS IS SAYING, JOIN OUR

TRIBE.

Efrem: AT LEAST 53

AMERICANS HAVE BEEN CHARGED

WITH TRYING TO TRAVEL TO

SYRIA TO JOIN THE FIGHT WITH

ISIS IN THE LAST YEAR.

BUT THERE MAY BE THOUSANDS

INSIDE THE UNITED STATES

CONSUMING THE TERRORISTS'

ONLINE POISON.

BACK IN Facebook, THE

F.B.I. DIRECTOR, JAMES COMEY

SAID THAT WE HAVE

INVESTIGATIONS ONGOING INTO

ISIS-RELATED ACTIVITY RIGHT

NOW IN ALL 50 U.S. STATES.

Efrem: WITH SKYPE,

Facebook, TWITTER, AND

OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA, THE

F.B.I. ESTIMATES IT'S

POSTING SOME 90,000 MESSAGES

EVERY DAY, TELLING FOLLOWERS

TO KILL WHERE YOU ARE, IF

YOU CAN'T TRAVEL TO SYRIA TO

JOIN THE FIGHT.

BEFORE THE ADVENT OF THIS

NEW TECHNOLOGY AND THE

GROWTH OF SOCIAL MEDIA, HOW

WOULD YOU REACH INTO THE

BASEMENTS AND BEDROOMS OF

AMERICAN HOMES?

Efrem: AND WHILE THE

ISIS CONNECTION MAY BEGIN ON

SOCIAL MEDIA, THE F.B.I.

WARNS: IF ISIS DOES MAKE

CONTACT WITH PEOPLE HERE IN

THE U.S., THE CONVERSATIONS

GO DARK BECAUSE THE

TERRORISTS STEER THEM INTO

INCRIPTED COMMUNICATIONS,

AND THE GOVERNMENT CAN NO

LONGER FOLLOW THEM, MAKING

THEM POTENTIALLY EVEN MORE

DANGEROUS.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: IT IS AMAZING

THAT THIS SORT OF LOW-TECH

GROUP IS SO SOPHISTICATED

THEY CAN OUTTECH THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA.

AND FOOL THE F.B.I., AND

HAVE THE F.B.I. ADMIT WE

CAN'T TRACK THEM ALL.

WE CAN'T GET TO THEM.

THE FIGHT HERE, REALLY,

THOUGH, ISN'T ABOUT

TECHNOLOGY.

IT'S ABOUT IDEOLOGY.

AND WE HAVE TO CONVINCE

PEOPLE THAT FOLLOWING THIS

KIND OF IDEOLOGY, IT'S NOT

GOING TO GET YOU TO HEAVEN.

IT'S NOT GOING TO GET YOU TO

SOME UTOPIA HERE ON EARTH.

IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN

THAT WAY.

WHAT IS IT GOING TO GET

YOU?

IT'S GOING TO GET YOU

DEATH.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS GOING TO

LEAD TO.

WE HAVE TO PREACH THAT

MESSAGE.

WE HAVE TO COME STRAIGHT AT

THE IDEOLOGY AND HAVE A WAR

OF IDEAS, NOT A WAR OF

BULLETS.

SO FAR WE HAVEN'T BEEN

WILLING TO ENGAGE IN THAT.

WE KEEP INSISTING THIS IS A

RELIGION OF PEACE.

WE KEEP INSISTING THAT

SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER THESE ARE

TERRORISTS AND WE CAN'T EVEN

ASSOCIATE ISLAM WITH THEM.

YOU HAVE TO SAY THEY'RE

TERRORISTS.

YOU CAN'T SAY THEY'RE

ISLAMIC TERRORISTS.

UNTIL WE GET TO THE POINT

WHERE WE SAY WE HAVE TO HAVE

A WAR OF IDEA, AND YOUR

IDEAS ABOUT GOD ARE WRONG.

IF YOU THINK BLOWING

YOURSELF UP IS GOING TO GET

YOU STRAIGHT TO HEAVEN, IF

YOU THINK TAKING OUT WEAPONS

AND CUTTING PEOPLE'S HEADS

OFF IS THE PATH TO HEAVEN,

YOU'RE WRONG.

UNTIL WE START WAGING THAT

WAR, WE'RE NOT GOING TO WIN

THIS.

> IN OTHER NEWS, PEOPLE

GATHERED ACROSS THE COUNTRY

ON THURSDAY TO PRAY FOU FOR

OUR NATION ON OUR ANNUAL DAY

OF PRAYER.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: AT THIS

CHURCH IN MARYLAND, PEOPLE

COULD DRIVE THROUGH FOR

PRAYER.

WE THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE

AN OPPORTUNITY TO REACH OUT

TO THEM FOR A FEW MOMENTS,

AS THEY DRIVE ON BY.

Reporter: EVERYONE WAS

INVITED.

I'M HERE SO I CAN BE

PRAYED FOR.

WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO JOIN

IN PRAYER TOGETHER, THINKING

ABOUT OUR COMMUNITIES,

THINKING ABOUT PUBLIC

SAFETY.

I PRAY FOR PEACE, FOR

SAFETY, NOT ONLY FOR LAWxíxí

ENFORCEMENT, BUT FOR THE

COMMUNITY.

Reporter: THExíxí THEME FOR

THIS YEAR'S "NATIONAL DAY OF

PRAYER" WAS "LORD, HEAR OUR

CRY," FROM 1 KINGS.

HEAR THE CRY OF YOUR

SERVANT THAT IS PRAYING IN

YOUR PRESENCE TODAY.

Reporter: ON CAPITOL

HILL, DECISION-MAKERS

HUMBLED THEMSELVES BEFORE

GOD.

IT IS TIMES LIKE THIS

WHEN WE BOW OUR HEAD IN

PRAYER.

Reporter: SOME

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES TOOK

TIME TO PRAY, INCLUDING

SENATOR CRUZ.

WE PAY FOR OUR LEADERS,

AND ASK THAT YOU GIVE THEM

WISDOM.

Reporter: DR. BEN

CARSON WAS THERE, TOO.

IT IS UP TO US, WHO ARE

THE TRIBAL LEADERS NOW, TO

STAND UP, TO STAND UP FOR

WHAT WE BELIEVE.

TO HAVE THE COURAGE AND THE

FAITH TO BELIEVE THAT GOD

WILL GET US THROUGH THIS

DIFFICULT PERIOD.

IF THE BELIEVERS WOULD

JUST TAKE ONE DAY, AND

EVERYBODY PRAY AT THE SAME

TIME, CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT

GOD WOULD DO?

THAT'S WHAT THE "NATIONAL

DAY OF PRAYER" IS ABOUT.

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Gordon: AND NOW, MORE

THAN EVER, WE NEED TO PRAY.

WE NEED TO ASK GOD TO

INTERVENE.

WITHOUT THE PRINCE OF PEACE,

WE'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE ANY

PEACE.

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO PRAY, SET

ASIDE TIME.

AND DON'T JUST DO IT ON THE

"NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER."

WE NEED TO BE PRAYING

CONTINUOUSLY AND PRAYING FOR

OUR LEADERS.

WELL, WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

AFTER THIS.

Gordon: FOR YEARS SCOTT

HOROWITZ HAD BEEN SAVING FOR

HIS DAUGHTER'S COLLEGE

FUNDMENT BUT WHEFUND.

BUT WHEN HE LOST HIS JOB,

THE BILLS KEPT COMING AND

SCOTT'S SAVINGS QUICKLY

DISAPPEARED.

Reporter: SCOTT AND HI

DUTY, ERIN, LOVE FLORIDA

STATE FOOTBALL.

HE HAD BEEN PLANNING FOR

YEARS TO PAY FOR ERIN'S

COLLEGE, BUT IN 2007 HE GOT

LAID OFF.

BY THEN HE WAS DIVORCED AND

HAD NOTHING TO FALL BACK

ON.

MY UNEMPLOYMENT WASN'T

EVEN PAYING MY BILLS.

I WAS GOING THROUGH MY

401K.

Reporter: SCOTT, WHO

HAD RECENTLY BECOME A

CHRISTIAN, WAS FRUSTRATED.

THEN ONE DAY A FRIEND FROM

CHURCH EXPLAINED HOW GOD

TAKES CARE OF US WHEN WE

TITHE.

SCOTT WAS SKEPTICAL, BUT HE

FELT HE HAD NOTHING TO

LOSE.

I WAS ALL RIGHT, I

ALREADY CAN'T PAY MY BILLS

ON THE LITTLE MONEY I'M

GETTING, SO I MIGHT AS WELL

SEE.

GOD, I'M GOING TO TEST YOU

ON THIS.

LET'S SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO.

IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS, I GET

A CHECK IN THE MAIL FROM THE

COMPANY THAT LAID ME OFF.

I GET A CHECK FOR ABOUT

$2,025 IN THE MAIL, AND IT

CAME AT A TIME WHEN I

REALLY, REALLY NEEDED IT.

Reporter: THEN A FEW

MONTHS LATER, SCOTLANDED A

JOB.

AS HIS INCOME ROSE, SO DID

HIS GIVING, AND HE STARTED

TO CLIMB OUT OF HIS

FINANCIAL HOLE.

THE MORE YOU DO IT, THE

MORE TRUST YOU BEGIN TO

BUILD.

THE MORE YOUR FAITH BUILDS

UP, THE MORE HE DOES FOR

YOU.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

Reporter: HE SAYS HIS

FAITH WAS TESTED AGAIN WHEN

HIS COMPANY DOWNSIZED AND HE

LOST THIS JOB.

THIS TIME HE WAS READY.

NOT ONLY DID HE TITHE OFF

HIS UNEMPLOYMENT CHECK, HE

GAVE MORE THAN THAT WHEN HE

BECAME A CBN PARTNER.

NOW MY FAITH HAS BEEN

ENERGIZED.

I KNEW HE WOULD TAKE CARE OF

ME AGAIN.

Reporter: IT WASN'T

LONG BEFORE HE LANDED

ANOTHER JOB WITH A BIGGER

SALARY.

THE MORE I PUT MY FAITH

IN HIM, HE KEEPS TAKING ME A

STEP ABOVE AND A STEP ABOVE

AND A STEP ABOVE.

IT HAS BEEN AN AMAZING

RIDE.

Reporter: SCOTT HAS

SINCE PAID OFF HIS DEBT AND

IS BUILDING UP HIS SAVINGS

AND RETIREMENT.

PLUS, HIS DAUGHTER, ERIN,

WAS AWARDED A COLLEGE

SCHOLARSHIP FOR TWO YEARS.

NOW SCOTT HAS THE TIME AND

MEANS TO SAVE UP FOR THE

REST OF HER EDUCATION.

IT IS A GOD THING.

IT IS NOTHING I DID.

IT IS AMAZING WHAT HE'LL DO

IF YOU'LL LET HIM.

Gordon: IT'S A GOD

THING.

IT IS NOTHING I DID.

IT IS AMAZING WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN YOU LET GOD -- WHEN YOU

PUT GOD INTO THE EQUATION.

THEN THINGS HAPPEN.

THE MIRACULOUS STARTS TO

HAPPEN.

HERE IS THE PROMISE, AND

THIS IS WHAT SCOTT RELIED

ON.

HE SAID, OKAY, I CAN'T PAY

MY BILLS ANYWAY, SO I'M

GOING TO TRY THIS.

AND HE SAID, I'LL TEST GOD

ON THIS.

FROM MALACHI 3: "BRING ALL

OF THE TITHES IN THE

STOREHOUSE SO 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."

IT IS WONDERFUL WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN WE BECOME GENEROUS,

WHEN WE BECOME GIVERS.

THERE IS AN OUTFLOW FROM US,

AND WITH THAT MIRACLES START

TO HAPPEN WITH OUR

FINANCES.

YOU JUST SAW IT IN SCOTT'S

STORY.

IF YOU DO THE SAME THINGS,

THE SAME PRINCIPLES WILL

COME INTO PLAY AND WORK FOR

YOU.

WILLIAM AND SANDRA LOVED TO

SPEND MONEY, EVEN WHEN THEY

DIDN'T HAVE IT.

WITH EVERY SWIPE OF THE

CREDIT CARD, THEY GOT DEEPER

AND DEEPER IN DEBT.

JUST WHEN THEY THOUGHT

THINGS COULDN'T GET ANY

WORSE, SANDRA LOST HER JOB.

Reporter: WILLIAM AND

SAND DR SANDRA PILLOS LOVED

TO FISH.

THIS ONE OF MY FAVORITE

THINGS TO DO IN MY SPARE

TIME.

SOMETIMES YOU GET A BITE

REAL QUICK, BUT OTHER TIMES

YOU HAVE TO WAIT AND BE

PATIENT.

I EQUATE THAT TO TITHING.

BECAUSE WE THROW THE BAIT,

WE LET IT SIT THERE, AND WE

WAIT.

Reporter: THERE WAS A

TIME WHEN THE COUPLE DIDN'T

HAVE THE PATIENCE, OR EVEN

THE DESIRE, TO GIVE.

MOST OF THEIR INCOME WENT TO

THINGS THEY DIDN'T REALLY

NEED.

SO THEY PUT EVERYTHING ON

CREDIT CARDS, AND SOON THEY

WERE IN OVER THEIR HEADS.

WE DON'T EVER THINK ABOUT

IT, YOU GO OUT AND EAT,

CHARGE, CHARGE, CHARGE.

AND THERE IS INTEREST AND

EVERYTHING ELSE.

SO WITH ALL OF THE CREDIT

CARDS WE HAD AND THE CARS

AND ALL OF THESE THINGS

ADDED UP.

IT ADDED UP TO A LITTLE

OVER $55,000.

WE NEEDED A MIRACLE.

Reporter: ABOUT THAT

TIME, WILLIAM HAD SOMETHING

ELSE GOING ON IN HIS LIFE.

THAT WAS THE TIMEFRAME

THAT THE LORD BROUGHT ME

BACK UNTO HIM.

IT WAS AN URGENCY IN MY

HEART TO DO WHAT WAS RIGHT

ACCORDING TO HIS WORD.

AND TITHING IS IN HIS WORD.

WE HAD TO REALIZE THAT

PUTTING GOD FIRST IN

EVERYTHING WAS THE KEY TO

OUR SUCCESS.

THEY SAY YOU CAN'T BEAT

GOD'S GIVING, SO I WANTED TO

REALLY PUT THIS TO THE

TEST.

IT WAS EITHER GOING TO BE

ALL GOD OR NOTHING, THAT'S

WHERE I WAS AT IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: WILLIAM WOULD

SOON GET THAT CHANCE.

IN 2007 SANDRA LOST HER

JOB.

AS THE COUPLE PRAYED, THEY

FELT LIKE GOD WAS LEADING

HER TO GO INTO EARLY

RETIREMENT, EVEN THOUGH THEY

WOULD HAVE ONE INCOME.

THEY TRUSTED GOD AND

CONTINUED TITHING AND

GIVING.

A YEAR LATER, WILLIAM WAS

OFFERED A JOB.

THEY OFFERED ME A

POSITION IN THIS NEW JOB,

WHICH WAS DOUBLING THE

SALARY I ALREADY HAD, WHICH

WAS FAR MORE THAN WE COULD

EVER ASK FOR.

Reporter: NOW THEY HAD

MORE TO GIVE AND MORE TO PUT

TOWARDS THEIR DEBT.

IN LESS THAN THREE YEARS,

THEY PAID OFF ALL OF THEIR

CREDIT CARDS.

ONCE THE FINAL PAYOFF WAS

MADE, IT WAS LIKE A BURDEN

WAS LIFTED OFF OUR

SHOULDERS.

IT WAS EASIER TO BREATHE.

WE PRAISED THE LORD FOR IT.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

SAYS TO RECEIVE GOD'S

BLESSINGS, WE NEED PATIENCE

AND A DESIRE TO GIVE.

GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU

MORE, BUT HE HAS TO TEACH US

TO RELEASE WHAT WE HAVE TO

RECEIVE MORE.

WHEN I STARTED SEEING THE

HEAVENS OPEN UP AND THE

BLESSINGS START COMING

TOWARDS US, I WAS, LIKE,

TAKE THE LORD AT HIS WORD.

GO FOR IT.

TRUST HIM.

TITHING IS JUST LIKE

FISHING: WHEN YOU'RE

PATIENT, YOU WILL GET A

CATCH.

Gordon: IF YOU'RE

PATIENT, YOU'LL GET A

CATCH.

HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM

PROVERBS: "IT IS POSSIBLE TO

GIVE AWAY AND BECOME

RICHER.

IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO HOLD

ON TOO TIGHTLY AND LOSE

EVERYTHING.

YES, THE LIBERAL MAN SHALL

BE RICH.

BY WATERING OTHERS, HE

WATERS HIMSELF."

I HAVE SOME GREAT NEWS.

SOME CBN PARTNER SAY THEY

LOVE GIVING, AND THEY WANT

TO CHALLENGE OTHERS TO

GIVE.

THEY'LL MATCH YOUR GIVING,

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, UP TO

$48,000.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST ASK FOR

BLESSING OVER THE PARTNERS

FROM MISSOURI AND TEXAS WHO

MADE IT POSSIBLE TO ISSUE

THIS CHALLENGE.

AND, LORD, OUR PRAYER OVER

THEM IS THAT YOU WOULD BE

WITH THEM.

YOU WOULD ENCOURAGE AND

STRENGTHEN THEM.

THAT YOUR PRESENCE WOULD BE

AROUND THEM CONSTANTLY.

AND, LORD, FOR THOSE

WATCHING MAKING DECISION, I

JUST THAT YOU WOULD

ENCOURAGE THEM AND BRING

THEM YOUR PEACE, FOR WE ASK

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

$48,000 ON A CHALLENGE.

43 MINUTES, 40 SECONDS ON

THE CLOCK.

DO?

GORDON?

Gordon: A FEW YEARS

AGO, MIKE WAS LOW ON CASH,

SO HE WAS SURPRISED TO LEARN

WHAT HE WIFE WAS DOING WITH

THE FEW DOLLARS THEY HAVE

LEFT.

Reporter: 61-YEAR-OLD

MIKE HAS RIDDEN AND WORKED

ON MOTORCYCLES HIS WHOLE

LIFE.

I LIKE TO PUT MY IDEAS

INTO A MOTORCYCLE THAT IS

DIFFERENT.

NONE OF THE MOTORCYCLES I

BUILD ARE THE SAME.

Reporter: MIKE MARRIED

MARY CHRIS IN THE

PHILIPPINES IN 2005.

THEY LIVED THERE FOR A

YEAR.

WHEN THEY RETURNED TO THE

STATES, MIKE HAD A HARD TIME

FINDING A JOB.

THAT'S WHEN HE STARTED TO

LEARN ABOUT A PRINCIPLE THAT

CHANGED EVERYTHING.

MIKE KNEW THAT MARY CHRIS

WATCHED "THE 700 CLUB" EVERY

DAY, BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW SHE

WAS GIVING MONEY TO THE

MINISTRY.

I SAID, HONEY, WHAT ARE

YOU DOING?

AND SHE SAID, I'VE BEEN

DOING THIS FOR A COUPLE OF

MONTHS.

I TOLD HER, FIRST, THAT WE

COULDN'T AFFORD TO SEND

$20.

I WASN'T WORKING.

SHE WAS DOING IRONING AND

THINGS FOR A NEIGHBOR.

Reporter: BUT THEN MIKE

BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT WHAT HE

SAW HIS WIFE DOING WITH THE

LITTLE BIT SHE WAS MAKING.

MY WIFE WAS GIVING ALL

SHE HAD.

AND SHE SHOWED ME -- I'M

SORRY.

I'M SORRY.

SHE SHOWED ME WHAT REAL

GIVING IS, THE HEART OF

GIVING.

Reporter: MARY CHRIS

ALSO URGED MIKE TO WATCH

"THE 700 CLUB" WITH HER.

WE STARTED WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB" AND LISTENING TO

PAT AND GORDON, AND THEN WE

STARTED LEARNING ABOUT

MALACHI 3: 10.

I SAID, OKAY, IF I'M GOING

TO GIVE $20, THEN THE LORD

WILL GIVE IT BACK TO US.

Reporter: SO MIKE SENT

OFF A CHECK TO CBN.

ABOUT A WEEK LATER, I

SOLD A MOTORCYCLE ENGINE

THAT I HAD IN MY SHED FOR

$2500.

I HAD IT THERE FOR YEARS.

I HAD ALMOST FORGOTTEN ABOUT

IT.

Reporter: WHEN MIKE

WENT BACK INTO THE HOUSE AND

TOLD MARY CHRIS WHAT

HAPPENED, SHE REMINDED HIM

ABOUT WHAT THEY'D BE

LEARNING.

THE FIRST THING MY WIFE

SAID IS, YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE

$25250 TO THE LORD.

AND I SAID, WHY?

AND THEN I SAID, YOU'RE

RIGHT, HONEY, WE HAVE TO

GIVE $250 TO THE LORD.

SO WE MAILED IT INTO CBN.

Reporter: SOON AFTER

THAT THEY WERE WATCHING THE

CBN TELATHON AND THEY

INCREASED THEIR GIVING TO

"THE 700 CLUB" GOLD OR $40 A

MONTH.

SHORTLY AFTER THAT I GOT

A JOBMENT AN JOB.

AND WE HAVE FRIENDS WHO HAVE

A BEAUTIFUL HOME, AND THEY

ASKED US TO LIVE THERE AND

TAKE CARE OF THE HOUSE, FREE

OF RENT.

RENT-FREE FOR OVER FIVE

YEARS?

THAT WAS A BLESSING.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

THEN INCREASED TO THE

THOUSAND CLUB AND EVENTUALLY

BECAME CBN FOUNDERS.

OUR INCOME HAS

INCREASED.

EVERY TIME WE INCREASE OUR

GIVING, THE LORD FINDS WAYS

TO INCREASE OUR EARNINGS.

IT IS REALLY STRANGE.

I WENT FROM MAKING $20 AN

HOUR TO MAKING $4 $42 AN

HOUR.

Reporter: NOT ONLY

THAT, MARY CHRIS STARTED A

SMALL BUSINESS CLEANING

HOUSES.

OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS, SHE

HAS GONE FROM ONE CLIENT TO

SEVEN.

MIKE AND MARY CHRIS KNOW THE

ANSWER IN THEIR LIVES IS

SIMPLE:

THE SECRET IS OBEYING

HIM.

DO YOU BELIEVE THE BIBLE?

OF COURSE.

DO YOU BELIEVE HE WON'T

LIE?

OF COURSE.

THEN WHY DON'T YOU TEST

THIS?

HE IS GOING TO PROVE HIMSELF

RIGHT, JUST BY OBEYING WHAT

HE ASKS YOU TO DO.

Gordon: JUST OBEY WHAT

HE ASKS YOU TO DO.

WONDERFUL WORDS TO LIVE BY.

HERE IT IS IN PROVERBS 3:

"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."

IF YOU WANT TO START DOING

THAT, IF YOU WANT TO TEST

GOD WITH THIS, CALL US NOW:

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

IT IS JUST $20 A MONTH, 65

SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE THOSE,

ASK FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS WHEN

WELL, IN 2009, MANY AMERICAN

BUSINESSES WERE CLOSING

THEIR DOORS, BUT NICOLE'S

SMALL SALON WAS JUST GETTING

STARTED, AND TODAY IT IS

STILL GOING STRONG.

AND HERE IS WHAT SHE DID TO

MAKE HER COMPANY

RECESSION-PROOF.

Reporter: NICOLE MENTO

OPENED HER OWN SALON WHEN

SHE WAS JUST 20 YEARS OLD.

WHILE MANY BUSINESSES WERE

FOLDING IN 2009, NICOLE

LAUNCHED HERS.

IN THE BEGINNING IT WAS

DIFFICULT BECAUSE I CAME

RIGHT OUT OF BEAUTY SCHOOL.

I HAD NO CLIENTS.

SO BASICALLY I STARTED

EVERYTHING FROM SCRATCH.

Reporter: NICOLE

TRUSTED GOD.

THE LORD JUST BLESSED MY

HANDS AND MY MAINED.

MIND.

HELP ME TO BUILD UP MY

CLIENTELE AND MY BUSINESS

AND TO GET THE RIGHT WORKERS

TO WORK HERE.

BUT I JUST PUT MY FAITH IN

GOD.

Reporter: SHE ALSO KNEW

THE BIBLICAL KEY TO

FINANCIAL SUCCESS STARTS

WITH GIVING.

THAT'S THE ONLY PLACE IN

THE BIBLE THAT GOD SAYS,

TEST ME IN THIS, THAT I WILL

NOT OPEN UP THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR OUT SO MANY

BLESSINGS THAT YOU CAN'T

EVEN CONTAIN THEM.

SO IF GOD SAYS TO TEST ME,

THAT'S THE ONLY PLACE IN THE

WORD THAT IT SAYS THAT, I

TESTED HIM.

Reporter: NICOLE, A CBN

PARTNER, WATCHES "THE 700

CLUB" EVERY DAY IN HER

SALON.

YOU CAN TRUST CBN.

THEY'VE BEEN AROUND FOR A

LONG TIME.

AND THEY HELP SO MANY PEOPLE

ALL OVER THE WORLD.

WOULDN'T IT MAKE YOU FEEL

GOOD TO BE A PART OF THAT.

Reporter: NICOLE HAS

PAID OFF HER START-UP

BUSINESS LOAN, AND THE

BUSINESS IS DEBT-FREE.

I'VE SEEN MY BUSINESS

GROW AND GROW AND GROW, AND

IT JUST KEEPS ON GROWING.

Reporter: SHE RECENTLY

INCREASED HER GIVING TO THE

2500 CLUB LEVEL.

I FEEL THAT THE WORD

SAYS, TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN,

MUCH IS REQUIRED.

SO IF GOD KEEPS BLESSING ME

AND GIVING ME MORE, THEN I

NEED TO BLESS OTHERS AND

GIVEN THEM MORE.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE FROM CORINTHIANS:

"GOD LOVES THE PERSON WHO

GIVES CHEERFULLY.

AND GOD WILL GENEROUSLY

PROVIDE ALL YOU NEED.

THEN YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE

EVERYTHING YOU NEED AND

PLENTY LEFT OVER TO SHARE

WITH OTHERS."

AND YOU CAN TELL WITH

NICOLE, SHE LOVES GIVING

CHEERFULLY.

SHE DOES THAT.

IF YOU WANT TO START A LIFE

OF DOING THAT, GIVE US A

CALL: 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A MEMBER.

IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE

GOSPEL PREACHED AROUND THE

WORLD, WE'RE DOING IT.

WE HAVE 15 PRODUCTION

GIVE.

OF IT, CALL US NOW:

TERRY?

Terry: RELIEF GROUPS

FROM AROUND THE WORLD ARE

WORKING TOGETHER TO HELP

SURVIVORS OF THE RECENT

EARTHQUAKE IN NEPAL.

BUT CBN WAS THERE LONG

BEFORE THE EARTHQUAKE TOOK

PLACE, HELPING PEOPLE LIKE

13-YEAR-OLD KRISHNA IN A

PART OF NEPAL WHERE MANY

PEOPLE HAVE NEVER SEEN A

DOCTOR.

HIGH IN THE MOUNTAINS OF

NORTHWEST NEPAL IS A LAND

THAT TIME HAS FORGOTTEN.

MOST PEEM I PEOPLE IN THE

HUMLA DOCTORS HAVE NO

RUNNING WATER, ELECTRICITY,

OR DOCTORS.

IT WAS ESPECIALLY HARD FOR

13-YEAR-OLD KRISHNA.

SHE SUFFERED EVERY DAY, NOT

KNOWING SHE HAD HEART

PROBLEMS.

Through Translator: I

COULDN'T WALK OR FETCH

WATER.

I FEEL WEAK.

IT IS DIFFICULT TO WORK.

I CANNOT DIG IN THE FIELD.

Terry: LIKE MOST PEOPLE

IN THEIR VILLAGE, KRISHNA

AND HER FAMILY WERE HINDU.

THEN THEY LEARNED ABOUT

JESUS CHRIST BY READING A

GOSPEL TRACT.

MY FATHER BECAME A

BELIEVER AND SAID I WOULD

SURVIVE.

LATER I ALSO BECAME A

BELIEVER.

Terry: THEIR FAITH IN

JESUS INFURIATED THEIR

NEIGHBORS.

THE VILLAGERS ASKED US,

WHAT WILL YOU GET BY

BELIEVE?

AND THEN THEY TOLD US TO

LEAVE THE VILLAGE.

Terry: BUT HER FAMILY

STOOD THEIR GROUND.

WE ASKED GOD FOR HELP.

WE SAID, LORD, WE PRAY THAT

THEY WILL ALSO BELIEVE IN

YOU.

Terry: KRISHNA'S

CONDITION GOT WORSE.

A DOCTOR IN A NEARBY VILLAGE

SAID SHE NEEDED OPEN-HEART

SURGERY.

I PRAYED, FATHER GOD,

PLEASE HELP ME.

PLEASE PROVIDE FOR ME.

SAVE MY LIFE.

Terry: THEN THEIR

PASTOR HEARD ABOUT CBN AND

CALL THEM.

WE CAME TO KRISHNA'S HOME

AND TOLD HER CBN WOULD PAY

FOR HER SURGERY AT A

HOSPITAL IN KATHMANDU.

BUT THAT MEANT KRISHNA WOULD

HAVE TO LEAVE HER HOME AND

FAMILY BEHIND.

WHEN KRISHNA AND THE CBN

TEAM ARRIVED AT THE

HOSPITAL, DOCTORS TOLD HER

SHE MADE IT JUST IN TIME.

THE SURGERY WAS A SUCCESS.

KRISHNA WAS TOLD SHE WOULD

HAVE TO LIVE IN KATHMANDU

FOR ONGOING MEDICAL

TREATMENTS AND BETTER LIVING

CONDITIONS.

SO A CHRISTIAN FAMILY THERE

WELCOMED HER AS PART OF

THEIR FAMILY.

SIX MONTHS LATER KRISHNA

WENT HOME FOR A VISIT.

SHE HAS GROWN.

AND SHE LOOKS HEALTHY.

Terry: KRISHNA AND HER

FAMILY GAVE ALL OF THE GLORY

TO JESUS CHRIST.

GOD IS GREAT AND HIGH

ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE.

Terry: AND SOME OF

THOSE WHO PERSECUTED THEM

NOW GATHER AT THEIR HOME TO

PRAISE AND WORSHIP THE ONE

TRUE GOD.

ALL OF YOU PRAYED FOR ME

AND THE MONEY FOR MY

OPERATION WAS SAVED.

I WANT TO THANK ALL OF THE

PEOPLE OF GOD.

Terry: KRISHNA'S LIFE

WAS SAVED.

SHE HAS HOPE AND A FUTURE,

BUT HER ENTIRE VILLAGE WAS

IMPACTED BY WHAT HAPPENED

THERE.

IT HAPPENED BECAUSE PEOPLE

LIKE YOU SAID, WE WANT TO

STAND UP AND MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

CHANGERS.

> WELL, A FEW YEARS AGO,

VINCENT AND TRACY MARTELLA

HAD NO IDEA WHERE THEIR NEXT

MEAL WAS COMING FROM.

VINCE WAS IN SCHOOL, AND

TRACY HAD JUST LOST THEIR

JOB.

SOMETIMES THEY HAD TO CHOOSE

BETWEEN MA PAYING THE

MORTGAGE AND FEEDING THEIR

FAMILY.

Reporter: THE MARTELLA

FAMILY LOVES BASEBALL.

BUT AMERICA'S PASTTIME WAS

THE LAST THING ON THEIR MIND

AFTER TRACY LOST HER JOB.

I WAS DEVASTATED I HAD

LOST MY JOB.

ALL I COULD THINK IS, WHAT

AM I GOING TO DO?

HOW AM I GOING TO FEED MY

KIDS?

WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW WE

WERE GOING TO MAKE IT.

I FELT LIKE THAT WAS A

REFLECTION ON ME, NOT

PROVIDING.

IT WAS HARD.

I JUST REMEMBER FEELING

HELPLESS.

THE MORE WE CUT BACK, THE

MORE IMPOSSIBLE IT LOOKED.

THEN I JUST DECIDED AT THAT

POINT, GOD, YOU'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO DO SOMETHING.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

TURNED TO GOD FOR COMFORT

AND STAYED IN CONSTANT

PRAYER.

THEN A

FRIEND TOLD THEM

ABOUT "OPERATION BLESSING"

PARTNER "WAREHOUSE OF HOPE,"

LED BY FOUNDER CRAIG

LARSON.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE STILL

WITHOUT JOBS.

PEOPLE ARE STRUGGLING

FINANCIALLY.

WE WANT TO GIVE PEOPLE

HOPE.

GOD IS USING "OPERATION

BLESSING" TO PROVIDE WHAT WE

NEED.

Reporter: "WAREHOUSE OF

HOPE" PROVIDES FOOD TO MORE

THAN 1500 FAMILIES IN

DOUGLASVILLE, GEORGIA.

WE STARTED GOING EVERY

WEEK TO MAKE IT THROUGH.

I WOULD COME HOME AND SEE

ALL OF THESE GROCERIES AND I

KNEW SHE DIDN'T GET THEM AT

A GROCERY STORE.

IT BLEW ME AWAY.

Reporter: VINCE

EVENTUALLY STARTED A JOB AS

A PROPERTY MANAGER, AND

TRACY STARTED TUTORING AT A

SCHOOL.

IT WAS A BLESSING THAT WE

WERE ABLE TO BLESS SOME

OTHER PEOPLE.

THAT WAS OBVIOUSLY JUST A

GREAT FEELING.

I MEAN, WHEN WE WERE

HURTING, WHEN WE DIDN'T HAVE

THE MONEY, IT WAS A

LIFESAVER.

"WAREHOUSE OF HOPE" AND

"OPERATION BLESSING"

DEFINITELY PUT FOOD ON OUR

TABLE.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING IT

POSSIBLE TO FEED MY FAMILY.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU MADE IT

POSSIBLE.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

JESUS TOLD HIS DISCIPLES

WITH JUST A SMALL AMOUNT OF

FAITH THEY COULD MOVE

MOUNTAINS.

AND THAT'S STILL TRUE FOR

YOU TODAY.

HEAR MORE OF GOD'S PROMISES

TO YOU IN PAT ROBERTSON'S

NEW D.V.D., "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD."

Wendy: THE BIBLE SAYS

FAITH COMES BY HEARING, AND

HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD.

YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES IT IS

NOT ENOUGH JUST TO READ THE

WORD.

YOU NEED TO HEAR IT.

IT DOES SOMETHING TO YOUR

SPIRIT AND IT DOES SOMETHING

TO YOUR FAITH, AND SUDDENLY

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR

YOU.

WE WANT TO MAKE IT EASY FOR

YOU TO HEAR THE WORD OF

GOD.

THAT'S WHY PAT HAS PUT

TOGETHER "THE TRANSFORMING

WORD," VERSES FOR HEALTH AND

HEALING.

THIS IS A C.D. AND A D.V.D.

AND THIS IS YOURS WHEN YOU

CALL RIGHT NOW.

IT IS OUR FREE GIFT TO YOU

WHEN YOU JUST SAY, YES, I

WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

1-800-759-0700.

THAT'S THE NUMBER TO CALL.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

WHEN YOU CALL, JUST SAY, I

I'M SURE YOU CAN THINK OF

FOUR OTHER PEOPLE WHO WOULD

REALLY BENEFIT FROM THIS

TEACHING.

THIS IS YOURS WHEN YOU CALL

US RIGHT NOW.

GORDON?

Gordon: EVERY MORNING

THESE SISTERS WATCH "THE 700

CLUB" TOGETHER.

BUT THEY DO MORE THAN JUST

WATCH.

AS CBN PARTNERS, THEY'RE

HELPING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD RIGHT FROM

THEIR LIVING ROOM.

Reporter: DRIVE NORTH

OF SEATTLE AND TAKE A FERRY

ACROSS THE PUGET SOUND, AND

YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF ON

WIGBY ISLAND.

WIGBY ISLAND IS HOME OF

COOPVILLE, WASHINGTON.

HOME TO THE INSEPARABLE

SISTERS, LIZ, MA MAXINE AND

JULIE.

I DEFINITELY ENJOY MY

SISTERS.

WE HAVE BIRTHDAYS EVERY

MONTH AND HAVE A GOOD TIME.

WE GET TOGETHER AS OFTEN

AS WE CAN.

I LOVE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" EVERY DAY BECAUSE I

ALWAYS LEARN SOMETHING NEW.

WE GET UP EVERY MORNING

AND DRINK OUR COFFEE TO

WATCHING PAT BECAUSE IT IS

NEWS YOU DON'T GET ON THE

OTHER CHANNELS.

I JUST FEEL IT IS MORE

OPEN AND TRUTHFUL.

Reporter: ALL THREE ARE

ALSO CBN PARTNERS.

THEY'RE EXCITED ABOUT WHAT

CBN IS DOING TO SPREAD THE

GOSPEL.

THE LORD HAS TOLD US...

"SUPERBOOK" IS WONDERFUL

BECAUSE I'VE NOTICED IN

OTHER COUNTRIES IT HELPS

THESE LITTLE CHILDREN TO

UNDERSTAND WHO THE LORD IS,

AND TO BE ABLE TO ACCEPT HIM

AS THEIR SAVIOR.

Reporter: THEY

ESPECIALLY LIKE CBN'S

"HELPING THE HOMEFRONT"

BECAUSE IT SUPPORTS MILITARY

FAMILIES.

I LOVE THE NEW PROGRAM

BECAUSE WE HAVE A MILITARY

BASE WHERE WE LIVE.

SO WE KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE

AND WHAT THEY'RE GOING

THROUGH.

Reporter: ALL THREE

HAVE FOLLOWED TERRY

MEEUWSEN'S JOURNEY AS SHE

LAUNCHED CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

I WOULD LIKE TO BE A PART

OF THAT PHYSICALLY, TO BE

ABLE TO GO WHEN SHE GOES.

BUT I CAN'T, SO I SEND MONEY

INSTEAD TO HELP THAT CAUSE,

AND IT'S VERY CLOSE TO MY

HEART.

Reporter: THESE ARE

JUST A FEW REASONS MAXINE,

JULIE, AND LIZ SUPPORT CBN.

CBN DOES SO MANY

WONDERFUL THINGS WITH THE

MONEY THAT IS GIVEN TO THEM,

TO BE ABLE TO HELP PEOPLE.

AND THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL

ABOUT, HELPING PEOPLE.

Gordon: BE A PART OF

IT.

BE A PART OF HELPING

PEOPLE.

BE A PART OF PREACHING THE

GOSPEL AROUND THE WORLD.

BE A PART OF SHARING THE

STORIES OF THE BIBLE WITH

THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD.

BE A PART OF "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

BE A PART OF ALL OF IT BY

JOINING "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS JUST $20 A MONTH, 65

CENTS A DAY.

SOME OF YOU CAN JOIN AT A

HIGHER LEVEL.

WE'VE GOT "THE 700 CLUB"

GOLD, $40 A MONTH.

WE HAVE THE THOUSAND CLUB,

WHICH BREAKS OUT TO $84 A

MONTH.

AT WHATEVER LEVEL GOD IS

SPEAKING TO YOU TO GIVE.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO

CALL US NOW: 1-800-759-0700.

WHEN YOU CALL AND JOIN AT

ANY LEVEL, $20 A MONTH OR

MORE, I WANT YOU TO HAVE

THIS.

IT'S "THE TRANSFORMING

WORD."

IT IS BOTH A D.V.D. AND A

C.D., WHERE YOU'LL GET

VERSES FOR HEALTH AND

HEALING.

AND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS -- I

WANT YOU TO REALLY

UNDERSTAND THIS, HOW

IMPORTANT IT IS TO HAVE THE

WORD SPOKEN OVER YOU.

WHEN THE APOSTLE PAUL LEFT

TIMOTHY IN CHARGE OF A

CHURCH, HE GAVE HIM

INSTRUCTIONS.

AND HE TOLD HIM, FOCUS ON

READING THE SCRIPTURES TO

THE CHURCH.

WHY?

BECAUSE IT WILL ENCOURAGE

THE BELIEVERS AND IT WILL

ALSO TEACH THEM.

WHEN YOU READ THE SCRIPTURES

ALOUD, SOMETHING HAPPENS

WITH THAT, WHERE IT

LITERALLY GETS INTO YOUR

SPIRIT, IT GETS INTO YOUR

INNERMOST BEING.

IT IS MORE THAN JUST READING

IT TO YOURS.

IT IS WHEN IT IS READ ALOUD

TO YOU THAT IT ACTIVATES.

FAITH COMES BY HEARING, AND

HEARING BY THE WORD.

I WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

IT IS YOURS WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

SO CALL US NOW:

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, THIS IS SO

HARD TO IMAGINE, BUT IN

THAILAND A WOMAN ABANDONED

HER 7-MONTH-OLD BABY, JUST

LEAVING HIM IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE STREET.

THE BABY WAS LATER ADOPTED

BY HIS GRANDPARENTS, BUT AT

THE TIME, THEY COULD BARELY

EVEN FEED THEMSELVES.

GRANDMA CAME RUNNING AFTER A

NEIGHBOR TOLD HER ABOUT

A

CRYING BABY IN THE STREET.

SHE SAID, COME, HURRY.

HE LOOKS LIKE YOUR

GRANDSON.

Terry: IT WAS HER

GRANDSON, TOM, SITTING IN

THE DIRT.

HIS LEGS COVERED IN AUNT

BITES.

HIS MOTHER HAD

ABANDONED

HIM.

HE WAS CRYING AND TRYING

TO GET AWAY FROM THE AUNTS.

I PICKED HIM UP AND

COMFORTED HIM.

IT BROKE MY HEART TO SEE HIM

THAT WAY.

Terry: TOM'S MOTHER

NEVER RETURNED, SO GRANDMA

URI AND HER HUSBAND RAISED

HIM AS BEST THEY COULD,

UNTIL GRANDPA SUFFERED A

STROKE.

MY HUSBAND USED TO DRIVE

A MOTORCYCLE TAXI, BUT AFTER

THE STROKE, HE COULDN'T WALK

OR TALK.

Terry: SO THE GRANDMA

HAD TO START SUPPORTING THE

FAMILY.

SHE HAD A SMALL STORE WITH A

LEAKY ROOF.

I DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY

TO FIX THE STORE.

I HAD TO BORROW MONEY FROM

OUR RELATIVES TO BUY FOOD.

Terry: ONE RELATIVE

SUGGESTED THEY SEND TOM TO

AN ORPHANAGE.

I TOLD MYSELF I WOULD

TAKE CARE OF HIM UNTIL HE

GROWS UP.

I LOVE MY GRANDMA VERY

MUCH.

SHE TAKES GOOD CARE OF ME.

WITHOUT HER, I WOULD

PROBABLY BE DEAD.

Terry: BUT THINGS GOT

WORSE WHEN THE GOVERNMENT

SHUT DOWN URI'S STORE

BECAUSE IT WAS TOO CLOSE TO

A CANAL.

THE AUTHORITIES TOLD ME

TO LEAVE BECAUSE THE CANAL

FLOODED.

I TRIED TO FIND WORK AT THE

MARKET, BUT PEOPLE SAID, NO,

WE ARE TOO OLD.

Terry: SO CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" HELPED

GRANDMA KEEP HER FAMILY

TOGETHER.

FIRST WE BUILT HER A NEW

STAND IN A SAFE LOCATION.

THEN WE SET IT UP WITH LOTS

OF GROCERIES, ALONG WITH A

STOVE, KITCHEN UTENSILS AND

A COOLER, SO GRANDMA COULD

PREPARE MEALS TO SELL.

GRANDPA'S CONDITION IMPROVED

SO MUCH HE IS HELP AT THE

STORE, TOO.

SINCE "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

HELPED US, WE ARE EARNING

SIX TIMES MORE THAN I USED

TO MAKE.

IT IS SO GOOD THAT SOMETIMES

WE RAN OUT OF THINGS TO

SELL.

I LOVE OUR NEW SHOP.

IT HELPS OUR FAMILY A LOT.

THANK YOU, "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

Terry: KEEPING

FAMILIES, WHEN IT CAN

HAPPEN, IS PART OF WHAT WE

DO.

EVERY CHILD NEEDS TO HAVE A

PLACE WHERE THEY BELONG.

YOU BE A PART OF THAT.

WON'T YOU HELP US?

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS

WORKING IN MORE THAN 60

COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD.

WE'RE REACHING OUT TO

CHILDREN WHO ARE DESPERATE

AND IN NEED.

WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU

HELP THEM IN A WAY THAT

THIEFG.

NEXT LEVEL, THE GOLD LEVEL.

BECAUSE WE'RE IN A

CHALLENGE, SO YOU'RE GIVING

GOES TWICE AS FAR.

HERE IS ANOTHER WAY TO

EXPAND THAT GIVING.

USE PLEDGE EXPRESS.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES ALL

OF THE WORK.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO REMEMBER

TO SEND ANYTHING OR HAVE

STAMPS OR ENVELOPES ON

HAND.

IT DOES SAVE US SOME

ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS SO WE

CAN PUT EVEN MORE OF YOUR

GIFT RIGHT INTO FAMILIES,

LIKE GRANDMA URI'S FAMILY,

THAT YOU JUST SAW.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU

FOR USING PLEDGE EXPRESS IS

TO SEND YOU A "POWER FOR

LIFE".

WE THINK THEY'LL BLESS YOU

AND YOU'LL BE BLESSING

OTHERS AT THE SAME TIME.

SO CALL NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

GORDON?

Gordon: IN THE

PHILIPPINES, A DEADLY

TYPHOON LEFT THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE HOMELESS AND HUNGRY.

IN ONE VILLAGE, WE MET AN

ELDERLY WOMAN AND HER

GRANDSON WHO HAD GONE DAYS

WITHOUT EATING.

Reporter: THE CHILDREN

IN THIS COMMUNITY IN THE

PHILIPPINES ARE PLAYING

NOW.

BUT IT WASN'T TOO LONG AGO

THAT THEY ALL FACED THE

DEADLIEST TYPHOON IN THEIR

NATION'S HISTORY.

CHILDREN LIKE 5-YEAR-OLD

ARNELL, HE TOLD US HE WENT

WITHOUT FOOD FOR DAYS.

MY DAD FOUND BREAD.

IT TASTED STALE, BUT I ATE

IT.

Reporter: ARNELL LOST

HIS MOTHER IN THE STORM, AND

HIS FATHER HAD TO GO LOOK

FOR WORK IN THE CITY.

SO ARNELL MOVED INTO A

TEMPORARY SHELTER WITH HIS

GRANDMA.

IT COMFORTS ME TO HAVE MY

GRANDSON WITH ME.

I WILL TAKE CARE OF HIM AS

LONG AS I LIVE.

Reporter: FOR A SHORT

TIME AFTER THE STORM,

GRANDMA JOSEFINA MADE A FEW

DOLLARS CLEARING DEBRIS, BUT

THAT JOB SOON ENDED.

WHEN HE DAD LOOKED FOR A

NEW JOB IN THE CITY, I

WORRIED ABOUT PROVIDING FOR

MY GRANDSON'S NEEDS.

Reporter: BUT JOSEFINA

DIDN'T HAVE TO.

Reporter: FO WORRY FOR

LONG.

CBN CAME TO THEM WITH FOOD

THAT WOULD LAST FOR WEEKS.

AND WE STARTED A LUNCH

PROGRAM AT HIS SCHOOL.

HE HAS MORE ENERGY

BECAUSE HE GETS TO EAT

HEALTHY MEALS IN SCHOOL

EVERY DAY.

OUR LUNCH TAKES GOOD.

I LIKE EATING FISH AND

BANANAS.

Reporter: CBN ALSO

BUILT A NEW HOUSE FOR ARNELL

AND JOSEFINA.

NOW ARNELL'S SISTER HAS BEEN

ABLE TO MOVE IN WITH THEM.

THEIR DAD ALSO FOUND A NEW

JOB AND IS SENDING MONEY TO

PROVIDE FOR THEM.

CBN HAS BEEN A BIG HELP

IN OUR RECOVERY FROM THE

TYPHOON.

YOU GAVE US WHAT WE NEEDED

TO KEEP GOING.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH,

CBN.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE A PART OF

THAT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

1-800-759-0700.

LETS GO OVER TO WENDY.

Wendy: HEY, GORDON,

GUESS WHAT?

I KNOW THIS WILL NOT

SURPRISE YOU, BUT PEOPLE ARE

ALREADY LOVING PAT

ROBERTSON'S NEW D.V.D., AND

THEY'RE LETING US KNOW.

HERE IS WHAT ONE VIEWER HAD

TO SAY ABOUT "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD."

ROMANS 10: 17 SAYS,

"FAITH COMES FROM HEARING,

AND HEARING FROM THE WORD OF

GOD."

AFTER I LOOKED INTO THE TRAN

"THE TRANSFORMING WORD," I

KNEW WE NEED TO MEDITATE ON

THE WORD.

GOD WANTS US TO KNOW HE IS A

HEALING GOD.

Wendy: SHE GETS IT.

IF YOU'RE A BELIEVER, YOU

ALREADY KNOW HOW POWERFUL

THE WORD OF GOD IS.

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO

WORK THE WORD.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

WELL, IT MEANS READ IT, OF

COURSE.

HEAR IT.

PROCLAIM IT.

AND THAT'S HOW YOU ACTIVATE

THE POWER OF GOD.

AND WE WANT TO HELP YOU DO

THAT.

IT IS SO EASY.

IT IS ALL IN HERE, "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD."

YOU CAN DISCOVER THE POWER

OF THE SPOKEN WORD.

THERE IS POWER OF LIFE AND

DEATH IN THE TONGUE AND SO

MUCH MORE.

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

1-800-759-0700.

THAT'S THE NUMBER TO CALL.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A CBN

PARTNER AT $20 A MONTH, I

JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

YOU ARE MAKING A HUGE

DIFFERENCE.

YOU'RE BEING A HUGE BLESSING

TO PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

SOME OF THEM YOU WON'T MEET

UNTIL YOU GET TO HEAVEN.

BUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE

AN EVEN BIGGER BLESSING, I

WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO GO

UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL, OUR

GOLD LEVEL, JUST $40.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, WE'RE

GOING TO BLESS YOU WITH

THREE D.V.D.s.

IF YOU GO TO OUR THOUSAND

CLUB LEVEL, JUST $84 A

MONTH, WE'RE GOING TO SEND

YOU FIVE OF "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD."

THIS IS YOURS WHEN YOU CALL

RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CHALLENGE.

$80,000.

THAT MEANS IF YOU GO TO YOUR

PHONES RIGHT NOW, EVERY

DOLLAR WILL BE MATCHED

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, SO THIS

IS THE TIME TO GIVE.

TERRY?

Terry: AS CBN PARTNERS,

YOU'RE HELPING THE POOREST

OF THE POOR.

LIKE THIS FAMILY IN CHINA.

THEIR HOUSE WAS FALLING

APART.

EVEN INSIDE IT WAS ALWAYS

COLD AND DAMP.

THE CHILDREN WERE ALWAYS

SICK.

BUT THERE WAS NO MONEY FOR

REPAIRS.

Terry: MAE YU AND LI

YONG LIVED AND AN OLD, LEAKY

HOUSE, MADE OF ROTTING

WOOD.

SOME PLACES IN THE HOUSE

GOT FROZEN.

EVEN WHEN I WRAPPED MYSELF

UP IN A BLANKET, I STILL

CANNOT SHOP SHIVERING.

AND BECAUSE IT WAS ALWAYS

DAMP, THERE WERE RATS AND

BUGS.

THE SOUND OF THE WIND WAS

SO SCARY, IT MADE ME CRY.

MY SCHOOL BOOKS AND MY BED

GOT ALL WED.

Terry: THE JONGS ARE

THE POOREST FAMILY IN THEIR

VILLAGE.

MR. JONG PLANTS CORN AND

POTATOES MILES AWAY.

MRS. JONG FARMS NEARBY.

TOGETHER THEY BARELY MAKES

$500 A YEAR.

SO THEY COULDN'T REPAIR

THEIR ROOF OR EVEN THINK

ABOUT GETTING A NEW HOME.

I REMEMBER ONE TIME THERE

WAS A THUNDERSTORM AND THE

ROOF WAS LEAKING REALLY

BADLY.

MY HUSBAND WAS AWAY

WORKING.

MY CHILDREN AND I HAD TO

DRAIN THE WATER OFF ALL BY

OURSELVES.

WE PRAYED AND PRAYED UNTIL

4:00 IN THE MORNING.

Terry: THEY SAT BY THE

FIRE MANY NIGHTS, BUT STILL

ENDED UP WITH SORES ON THEIR

HANDS AND FEET.

WE

DID OUR BEST, BUT AS A

HUSBAND AND A FATHER, I

BLAMED MYSELF.

SO IN THE MOST DIFFICULT

TIME, I TOLD THE LORD, I

GIVE EVERYTHING TO YOU.

I KNOW THAT YOU WILL PROVIDE

FOR MY FAMILY'S NEEDS.

Terry: THEN MR. JONG'S

BOSS TOLD HIM ABOUT CBN AND

OUR ONGOING HELP IN HIS

VILLAGE.

CBN GOT TO WORK FAST AND THE

JONGS PITCHED IN WITH THE

CONSTRUCTION.

TODAY THEY DON'T JUST HAVE A

NEW HOUSE, THEY HAVE A

HOME.

IT'S CONCRETE AND FULLY

EQUIPPED WITH A HEATER AND

NEW BLANKETS, SO THE

CHILDREN ARE ALWAYS WARM,

DRY, AND PROTECTED.

NOW I FEEL SO SECURE.

WHEN WE MOVED INTO OUR

NEW HOME, MY SISTER AND I

JUMPED ALL AROUND LIKE TWO

HAPPY LITTLE MONKEYS.

WE SLEEP REALLY WELL AND

WE'RE NOT AFRAID OF

ANYTHING.

MY CHILDREN KNOW WE COULD

NEVER HAVE DONE THIS ON OUR

OWN.

I GIVE ALL OF THE GLORY

TO GOD.

MAY YOU BE REWARDED FOR WHAT

YOU HAVE DONE.

MAY YOU BE ABLE TO BLESS

MORE PEOPLE WITH THE LOVE OF

GOD, JUST LIKE YOU BLESSED

US.

Terry: I TRY TO IMAGINE

WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IN THE

MIDDLE OF WINTER TO HAVE

WATER DRIPPING IN ON ME

THROUGH THE ROOF, TO WRAP UP

IN WET BLANKETS AND TRY TO

SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT,

STAY HEALTHY, AND TAKE CARE

OF MY KIDS.

IT IS NOT BECAUSE THESE

PEOPLE DON'T CARE ABOUT

THEIR CHILDREN.

THEY SIMPLY DON'T HAVE THE

MEANS TO MAKE THIS KIND OF

DIFFERENCE.

SO WHEN YOU MAKE IT POSSIBLE

TO COME RIGHT INTO THE MIDST

OF THAT NEED, YOU ARE

CHANGING THEIR LIVES, IN

MANY INSTANCES, FROM A

PHYSICAL STANDPOINT, SAVING

THEIR LIVES.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

YOUR COMPASSION AND

GENEROSITY TOUCHES THE WORLD

WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CHALLENGE.

EVERY DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL

BE MATCHED DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.

AND TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE AN

INCREDIBLE DIFFERENCE.

GORDON?

Gordon: IN INDIA, A

HUSBAND AND WIFE WORKED ALL

DAY, BUT THEY ONLY EARNED

$4.

THEY WERE BARELY SURVIVING,

SO THEY PRAYED FOR HELP.

AND PEOPLE LIKE YOU BECAME

THE ANSWER TO THEIR

PRAYERS.

Reporter: EVERY DAY,

FROM DAWN UNTIL DUSK, MALA

AND HER HUSBAND CRUSHED

STONES IN THE QUARRY.

MY HUSBAND MADE $3 AND I

MADE $1.

WE HAVE THREE CHILDREN.

OUR INCOME IS NOT ENOUGH TO

TAKE CARE OF OUR BASIC

NEEDS.

Reporter: TO

MAKE

MATTERS WORSE, MALA WOULD

SPEND UP TO TWO HOURS

FETCHING WATER FOR HER

FAMILY AFTER WORK.

ONE TIME I ALMOST GOT BIT

WHILE WALKING TO GET WATER.

> I COULD SEE THE SNAKE

RIGHT BY ME.

Reporter: AS

CHRISTIANS, THEY PRAYED TO

JESUS FOR

HELP.

THEN MALA THOUGHT OF A

BETTER WAY TO MAKE A

LIVING.

I HAD A DESIRE TO LEARN

TAILORING, SO I

TOOK A

CLASS, BUT I COULDN'T AFFORD

A SEWING MACHINE.

WHEN I HEARD ABOUT THEIR

WATER PROBLEMS, I ASKED CBN

IF THEY COULD DIG A WELL.

THEY SOON CAME OUT AND

STRUCK WATER.

Reporter: THE WELL WAS

DEDICATED IN THE NAME OF

JESUS CHRIST.

IT WAS A JOYOUS MOMENT FOR

EVERYONE.

MANY VILLAGERS UNDERSTOOD

THAT JESUS MADE THIS WELL

POSSIBLE, AND THEY ARE NOW

COMING TO CHURCH.

Reporter: THEN WE GAVE

HER WHAT SHE

NEEDED TO

PURSUE HER DREAM AND GIVE

HER FAMILY

A BETTER

LIFE.

YOU GAVE ME A MOTORIZED

SEWING MACHINE.

GOD HAS ANSWERED OUR

PRAYERS.

WE CAN NOW MAKE ENOUGH MONEY

TO RAISE OUR CHILDREN.

AND WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT GETTING BIT BY SNAKES

WHILE GETTING WATER.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER, YOU'RE A

PART OF THAT.

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, JOIN

DRINKING WATER FOR PEOPLE IN

TERRY?

Terry: JOHANNA HAD TO

FEED FOUR CHILDREN ON JUST

$2 A DAY.

SO WE DECIDED TO HELP THIS

SINGLE MOM.

TODAY SHE OWNS HER OWN

BUSINESS AND HER CHILDREN

NEVER HAVE TO GO TO BED

HUNGRY.

Reporter: EVERY DAY

JOHANNA WOULD MAKE HER WAY

THROUGH THIS

MOSQUITO-INFESTED SWAMP,

LOOKING FOR ONE THING:

MANGROVE CRABS.

FOR AN ENTIRE DAY'S WORK,

SHE'LL EARN ONLY $2.

I REALLY NEED TO GO TO

THE SWAMP EVERY DAY.

WITH FOUR KIDS, THERE WAS

NEVER ENOUGH.

Reporter: ONE DAY AS

SHE WAS CUTTING A PATH

THROUGH SOME THICK BRUSH,

HER

MACHETE SLIPPED AND CUT

HER HAND.

I STARTED TO SCREAM.

THEN SOMEBODY HELPED ME

GETTING TO THE CANOE.

Reporter: JOHANNA

PADDLED 40 MINUTES TO REACH

THE DOCK NEAR HER HOME.

I WENT TO THE CLINIC AND

THEY HELPED ME.

MY HAND WAS SO SWOLLEN.

Reporter: FOR A WEEK

JOHANNA COULDN'T COLLECT

CRABS TO SELL, BUT HER

CHILDREN STILL HAD TO

ELITE.

WHE EAT.

WHEN MY MOM COULD NOT

WORK, I WENT TO THE SWAMP TO

LOOK FOR CRABS TO MAKE A

SOUP.

Reporter: LATER JOHANNA

MET SOME FOLKS FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING."

SHE MENTIONED HER DREAMS OF

HAVING A BAKERY.

A FEW DAYS LATER, SHE WAS

SHOCKED WHEN WE ARRIVED AT

HER HOME WITH EVERYTHING

NEEDED TO START THAT

BUSINESS.

JOHANNA STILL REALIZED SHE

WAS THE ONLY ONE IN TOWN

SELLING DOUGHNUTS, AND

WITHIN A FEW MONTHS, SHE WAS

EARNING UP TO $450 A MONTH.

NICE

NOW I AM SO HAPPY BECAUSE

MY MOM HAS HER OWN

BUSINESS.

WE DON'T GO WITHOUT FOOD

ANYMORE.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR HELPING MY

MOM.

Terry: GIVING HOPE AND

A FUTURE, GIVING PURPOSE AND

MEANING, TEACHING ABOUT THE

LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST,

SHOWING HER CHILDREN THAT

THERE IS A PLAN AND A

PURPOSE FOR THEIR LIVES,

THAT GOD LOVES THEM BEYOND

WHAT THEY COULD ASK FOR,

HOPE, OR IMAGINE.

HE SEES THEIR NEED AND HE

KNOWS THEIR NAME.

HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?

BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND

ME SAY, YES, GOD, I WANT TO

BE A PART OF WHAT YOU'RE

DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

WE INVITE YOU TO DO THAT

TODAY.

GO TO YOUR PHONE AND CALL

AND SAY, I WANT TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

YOU CAN MAKE THIS KIND OF AN

INCREDIBLE DIFFERENCE RIGHT

FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN

LIVING ROOM, AND HAVE THE

SATISFACTION OF KNOWING THAT

BE A PART OF MAKING THAT

KIND OF A DIFFERENCE.

GORDON?

Gordon: IT HAS BEEN A

GLORIOUS DAY.

WE'RE COUNTING DOWN TO

VICTORY ON THIS $80,000

IT IS WONDERFUL, WHAT HAS

HAPPENED.

$80,000.

WORDS FROM PSALM 115: "MAY

THE LORD GIVE YOU INCREASE

MORE AND MORE, YOU AND YOUR

YOU.
