The 700 Club - September 29, 2015

He pastored a small church early in his career but made little money to support his family. He started selling watermelons on the side, and his income ultimately skyrocketed. See how he did it and what he credits for his success. Read Transcript


Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

AT THE U.N. ON MONDAY,

WORLD LEADERS SPARRED OVER

THE MIDDLE EAST, WITH THE

UNITED STATES AND RUSSIA

FIRMLY ON OPPOSITE SIDES.

PRESIDENT OBAMA CALLED

SYRIAN PRESIDENT BASHAR

al-ASSAD A TYRANT WHO

MUST BE REMOVED, WHILE

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT PUTIN

DEFENDED HIM AS A

STABILIZING FORCE AGAINST

ISIS.

Terry: PUTIN IS NOW

BUILDING HIS OWN COALITION

OF COUNTRIES TO FIGHT

ISIS, AND HE IS BOOSTING

RUSSIA'S MILITARY POSITION

IN THE REGION.

HERE IS DALE HURD WITH

THAT STORY.

Reporter: AS BARACK

OBAMA HAS SOUGHT TO PULL

AMERICA'S MILITARY OUT OF

THE MIDDLE EAST, RUSSIA'S

VLADIMIR PUTIN HAS BEEN

MORE THAN HAPPY TO FILL

THE VACUUM.

AT THE UNITED NATIONS ON

MONDAY, THEY DISCUSSED

WORKING TOGETHER TO FIGHT

ISIS.

BUT A KEY ISSUE IS

DIVIDING THE TWO LEADERS:

WHAT TO DO ABOUT SYRIA'S

BLOODY DICTATOR BASHAR

al-ASSAD.

President Obama: WHEN

A DICTATOR SLAUGHTERS TENS

OF THOUSANDS OF HIS OWN

PEOPLE, THAT IS NOT JUST A

MATTER OF ONE NATION'S

INTERNAL AFFAIRS.

Reporter: PUTIN SEES

IT DIFFERENTLY.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

WE THINK IT IS AN

ENORMOUS MISTAKE TO REFUSE

TO COOPERATE WITH THE

SYRIAN GOVERNMENT AND ITS

ARMED FORCES WHO ARE

FIGHTING TERRORISM FACE TO

FACE.

Reporter: THE U.S.

STILL INSISTS SYRIA'S

FUTURE CANNOT INCLUDE

MR. ASAD.

BUT ANALYSTS SAY AMERICA'S

CLOUT IN THE AREA IS

SHRINKING.

THE U.S. NOW FINDS ITSELF

ON THE OUTSIDE OF A NEW

ALLIANCE BETWEEN RUSSIA,

IRAN, SYRIA AND AMERICA'S

ALLY, IRAQ.

THE U.S. HAS LEARNED THAT

IRAQ WILL SHARE

INTELLIGENCE WITH THE

RUSSIAN ALLIANCE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SOUNDED

OPEN TO WORKING WITH THEM,

TOO.

President Obama: THE

UNITED STATES IS PREPARED

TO WORK WITH ANY NATION,

INCLUDING RUSSIA AND IRAN,

TO RESOLVE THE CONFLICT.

Reporter: BUT CRITICS

SAY IT HAS BEEN OBAMA'S

OWN POLICY OF RETREAT THAT

HAS ALLOWED RUSSIA TO GET

STRONGER IN THE MIDDLE

EAST, WHILE AT THE SAME

TIME REDUCING THE

INFLUENCE OF THE UNITED

STATES.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: COLIN POWELL

SAID FAMOUSLY ABOUT IRAQ,

IF YOU BREAK IT, YOU OWN

IT.

AND WHAT WE'VE DONE

RECENTLY IS SAY WE DON'T

OWN IT, AND WE'VE

RETREATED AND WE HAVE

PULLED OUT OF BOTH IRAQ

AND AFGHANISTAN.

THE TALIBAN IS BACK ON THE

RISE IN AFGHANISTAN.

THEY'VE JUST TAKEN A MAJOR

NORTHERN CITY, AND THE

GOVERNMENT FORCES THERE

ARE FIGHTING AGAINST THEM

AGAIN.

AND NOW IN IRAQ, IS IT

SUNNI, IS IT SHI'ITE --

WHAT IS IT?

AND THE DISTURBING NEWS

THAT IRAQ HAS NOW AGREED

TO SHARE INTELLIGENCE WITH

IRAN AND SYRIA AND RUSSIA

ABOUT ISIS BECAUSE THEY'RE

LOOKING FOR HELP IN HOW TO

FIGHT THAT TERROR.

SO IS IT ANY WONDER IN

THIS VACUUM THAT RUSSIA IS

SEEING AN OPPORTUNITY?

IS IT ANY WONDER THAT IRAN

IS SEEING AN OPPORTUNITY?

AND WHAT WOULD THAT MEAN

FOR THE WORLD, IF IRAN,

RUSSIA, SYRIA AND IRAQ GOT

TOGETHER IN SOME SORT OF

COALITION?

WELL, YOU LOOK AT SOME OF

THE PROPHECIES IN THE

BIBLE, AND THE RISE OF THE

KINGS OF THE EAST -- ARE

WE ACTUALLY WITNESSING

THAT IN OUR TIME?

> WELL, IN OTHER NEWS,

MORE FIGHTING BETWEEN

PALESTINIANS AND ISRAELI

POLICE AT THE TEMPLE

MOUNT.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU

IN WASHINGTON.

Joseph: THE FINDING

CAME AT THE TEMPLE MOUNT

ON MONDAY.

ISRAELI POLICE HAVE BEEFED

UP SECURITY AFTER MULTIPLE

CLASHES IN RECENT WEEKS.

A POLICE SPOKESWOMAN SAYS

PALESTINIANPALESTINIANS THREW ROCKS

AND FIREBOMBS.

THE COMPOUND IS SACRED TO

JEWS, THE SITE OF TWO

ANCIENT BIBLICAL JEWISH

TEMPLES.

MUSLIMS BELIEVE IT IS

WHERE MUHAMMAD ASCENDED TO

HEAVEN.

> HERE IN WASHINGTON,

AMERICA'S LARGEST ABORTION

PROVIDER IS TESTIFYING HOW

PLANNED PARENTHOOD HAS

BEEN SELLING ABORTED BABY

BODY PARTS.

CONGRESS LAUNCHED AN

INVESTIGATION AFTER

UNDERCOVER VIDEOS EXPOSED

THE PRACTICE.

THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD

PRESIDENT SAYS THE

ABORTION PROVIDER IS PROUD

OF ITS ROLE IN FETAL

TISSUE RESEARCH, ARGUING

THAT THE HARVESTING OF

ABORTED BABY ORGANS IS A

MINISCULE PART OF ITS

SERVICES.

OPPONENTS SAY THEY'RE

BREAKING FEDERAL LAWS BY

PROFITING FROM FETAL

TISSUE SALES AND CHANGING

ABORTION PROCEDURES.

THEY WANT CONGRESS TO STOP

SENDING TAXPAYER MONEY TO

THE GROUP.

DEMOCRATS HAVE BLOCKED

THAT MOVE IN THE SENATE

WITH A FILIBUSTER.

> IRANIAN PRESIDENT

HASSAN ROUHANI HAS LEFT

THE UNITED STATES WITHOUT

MEETING NAGHMEH ABEDINI.

SHE HAD REQUESTED A

MEETING WITH THE

DELEGATION, BUT ROUHANI

DEPARTED IMMEDIATELY AFTER

HIS ADDRESS AT THE UNITED

NATIONS.

HER HUSBAND, PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI, HAS SERVED THREE

YEARS OF AN EIGHT-YEAR

SENTENCE.

ROUHANI SAID HE WOULD

RELEASE ALL HELD IN IF THE

U.S. WOULD RELEASE THEIR

PRISONERS.

GORDON, IT IS TRAGIC A MAN

IMPRISONED SIMPLY FOR HIS

CHRISTIAN FAITH.

Gordon: AND EVEN MORE

TRAGIC THAT THE U.S.

SIGNED A TREATY WITH THE

SAME GROUP THAT DIDN'T

REQUIRE HIS RELEASE.

WE REMOVED ALL OF THE

SANCTIONS AGAINST THEM,

AND DIDN'T REQUIRE THE

RELEASE OF ONE OF OUR OWN

CITIZENS FROM THEIR

PRISON.

THE REASON HE IS IN PRISON

IS BECAUSE HE IS A

CHRISTIAN.

AND WE DIDN'T ASK FOR HIM

BACK.

WE DIDN'T MAKE THAT A

FUNDAMENTAL ON THIS NEW

TREATY.

WHY?

I HAVE NO IDEA.

BUT IF YOU THINK IRAN IS

SOMEHOW GOING TO BE A

FRIEND OF THE UNITED

STATES, THINK AGAIN.

AND IF THEY DEVELOP A

NUCLEAR WEAPON, YES,

ISRAEL WILL BE A TARGET,

BUT I THINK WE'LL BE A

TARGET AS WELL.

> WELL, WE'LL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

GOORM Gordon: AS THE PARTE PASTOR

OF A SMALL CHURCH, TONY

MOORE MADE A SMALL AMOUNT

OF MONEY, SO HE TOOK A

SIDE JOB.

AND HE HAS TURNED IT INTO

A MULTIMILLION BUSINESS.

Reporter: FOR MORE

THAN 20 YEARS, WATERMELONS

HAVE BEEN THE SOURCE OF

SUCCESS FOR CATHY AND TONY

MOORE.

BUT EARLY ON IN THEIR

RELATIONSHIP, THEY

WONDERED IF THEY WOULD

EVER BE ABLE TO GET AHEAD.

TONY DIDN'T MAKE MUCH,

PASTORING A SMALL CHURCH.

MY FIRST SET SALARY WAS

$200 A WEEK.

Reporter: AND WITH

MINIMAL MEDICAL INSURANCE,

THEY FACED BIG BILLS AFTER

THEY HAD THEIR FIRST BABY.

WE CAME VERY CLOSE TO

GETTING PUBLIC ASSISTANCE.

BUT I DIDN'T FEEL

PERSONALLY I WAS SUPPOSED

TO DO THAT.

Reporter: INSTEAD,

THEY TITHED FROM THEIR

MEAGER INCOME AND RELIED

ON GOD.

WE DID THE BEST WE

COULD.

I TRIED TO BE A FRUGAL

SHOPPER AND USED COUPONS

AND STRETCHED THE BUDGET.

I CAN'T EXPLAIN TO YOU

THAT THE BILLS WOULD BE

HERE AND THE INCOME HERE,

BUT AT THE END OF THE

MONTH, IT SEEMS THEY WOULD

MEET EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Reporter: PASTORS OF

SMALL CHURCHES OFTEN HAVE

SECOND JOBS.

TONY WAS NO EXCEPTION.

BACK IN THE EARLY

'90s, MY STEPFATHER WAS

A FARMER AND HE HAD 300 OR

400 MELONS HE GREW.

I WOULD PICK UP 100 TO 200

WATERMELONS AT A TIME, AND

I STARTED PEDALLING THEM

OUT.

Reporter: TONY DID SO

MUCH BUSINESS OUT OF THE

BACK OF A PICKUP, OTHER

FARMERS TOOK NOTICE AND

ASKED HIM TO SELL THEIR

MELONS, TOO.

AND AS THEY'RE INCOME

INCREASED, THEY KEPT ON

TITHING.

WHEN WE PRAYED FOR GOD

TO BLESS US AND TO PROVIDE

FOR US, GOD OFTENTIMES

BLESSES US WITH THE

ABILITY TO DO THOSE THINGS

THAT NEED TO BE DONE.

Reporter: SOON HE WAS

SHIPPING OUT MELONS BY THE

THOUSANDS.

AND I REMEMBER THAT

FIRST YEAR I SOLD 10

TRACTOR-TRAILER LOADS, AND

I THOUGHT I HAD REALLY

DONE SOMETHING.

NOW DURING THE BUSY TIME

OF OUR YEAR HERE, WE CAN

DO 20 TO 25

TRACTOR-TRAILER LOADS IN A

DAY.

I REMEMBER ONE YEAR

SITTING DOWN AND WORKING

ON MY TAXES, AND MY GIVING

EXCEEDED MY ADJUSTED GROSS

INCOME JUST A FEW YEARS

BEFORE.

MY THOUGHT WAS: I WONDER

HOW MUCH I CAN TOP THAT BY

NEXT YEAR.

Reporter: ON TOP OF

THEIR TITHE, THE MOORES

GIVE TO A NUMBER OF

MINISTRIES, INCLUDING CBN.

CBN HAS REALLY MEANT A

LOT TO US OVER THE YEARS

AS WE WATCHED THE PROGRAM

AND HAVE SEEN HOW GOD HAS

BLESSED PEOPLE THROUGH THE

PROGRAM ITSELF, AS WELL AS

"OPERATION BLESSING," PLUS

CBN NEWS, BECAUSE I GET TO

HEAR NEWS FROM A CHRISTIAN

PERSPECTIVE.

Reporter: TODAY TONY

PASTORS A CONSIDERABLY

LARGER CHURCH, WHILE

MOORE'S PRODUCE BROKERS

HUNDREDS OF MELONS EVERY

SUMMER.

THEIR KIDS HELP OUT WITH

THE BUSINESS, AND TOGETHER

THEY ENJOY THE SIDE

BUSINESS AS A FAMILY.

THEY CREDIT THEIR SUCCESS

TO GIVING.

WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN

TITHERS.

WE TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO

TITHE.

WE FOUND YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE

GOD.

IT IS ALL ABOUT HIM.

AND WHEN WE HONOR HIM, HE,

INDEED, HONORS US.

Gordon: AND HE WILL

HONOR YOU IF YOU FOLLOW

THE SAME PRINCIPLE.

HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM 2

CORINTHIANS 9: "REMEMBER

THIS, A FARMER WHO PLANTS

ONLY A FEW SEEDS WILL GET

A SMALL CROP.

BUT THE ONE WHO PLANTS

GENEROUSLY WILL GET A

GENEROUS CROP FOR FOD GOD

LOVES THE PERSON WHO GIVES

CHEERFULLY.

AND GOD WILL GENEROUSLY

PROVIDE ALL YOU NEED.

AND YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE

EVERYTHING YOU NEED AND

PLENTY LEFT OVER TO SHARE

WITH OTHERS."

AND TONY AND CATHY WALKED

THAT OUT.

THEY STARTED VERY SMALL.

AND IT IS AMAZING TO ME,

GOD LOVES TO START SMALL.

AND WHEN WE DO IT HIS WAY,

WE BUILD IT HIS WAY, TO

SAY, I'M GOING TO LIVE

GENEROUS MANY, I'M GOING

TO CONTINUE TO GIVE, AND

I'M GOING TO GIVE.

AS GOD PROVIDES, I'M GOING

TO INCREASE.

AND WHEN YOU DO THAT AND

DO THAT CONSISTENTLY,

THAT'S WHEN THE BLESSINGS

HAPPEN.

JOE AND REBECCA WERE

LIVING PAYCHECK TO

PAYCHECK AND FIGHTING ALL

OF THE TIME.

AND THEN THEY MADE AN

INVESTMENT THEY COULDN'T

AFFORD -- AT LEAST THAT'S

WHAT THEY THOUGHT.

BUT WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

SAVED THEIR MARRIAGE AND

CHANGED THEIR LIVES.

Reporter: AS A YOUNG

COUPLE, JOE AND REBECCA

SHERER HAD ALWAYS MADE

GOING TO CHURCH A

PRIORITY.

TITHING, ON THE OTHER

HAND, WAS ANOTHER MATTER.

I JUST THOUGHT ONCE

THOSE PLATES ARE PASSED,

YOU GIVE WHATEVER IS IN

YOUR POCKET.

YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO

GIVE THAT.

YOU GIVE WHATEVER YOU WANT

TO GIVE.

Reporter: THEY FELT

THEY SHOULD TRY TO GIVE

MORE, BUT THEY NEVER DID.

I FELT LIKE I WAS

LIVING SO PAYCHECK TO

PAYCHECK AND COULDN'T GO

AND GIVE 10%.

WE HAD SOME NO-INTEREST

PAYMENTS ON, LIKE,

FURNITURE BILLS AND STUFF

LIKE THAT.

SO ALL IN ALL, WE WERE

EASILY A COUPLE HUNDRED

THOUSAND IN DEBT.

Reporter: THEY HADN'T

LEARNED TO TRUST GOD WITH

THEIR FINANCES.

WE WERE STILL THINKING

IT WAS OUR MONEY, SO THAT

WAS THE BIGGEST THING.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

FOUGHT OFTEN, NOT KNOWING

HOW TO GET OUT OF THEIR

FINANCIAL HOLE.

I WOULD SAY, WELL, THIS

IS GOING ON THIS MONTH.

SO I HAVE TO HAVE ENOUGH

MONEY FOR THIS AND THIS

AND THIS.

AND HE WOULD SAY, WELL, WE

JUST DON'T HAVE IT.

AND THAT'S WHEN WE WOULD

ARGUE.

AND WE WOULD REALLY FIGHT

ABOUT THAT.

Reporter: IN 2005

THEY STARTED GOING TO A

DIFFERENT CHURCH.

THE MESSAGE WAS REALLY

ABOUT BEING ALL IN FOR

HIM.

ALL IN.

NOT JUST IN TITHING, BUT

IN PRAYER AND THE WAY YOU

RAISE YOUR FAMILY.

AND HOW, YOU KNOW, YOU'RE

A MAN OF GOD, AND HOW YOU

NEED TO REPRESENT HIM.

SO THAT ALL BASICALLY GOT

ME TO WHERE I WAS JUST,

LIKE, WE HAVE TO DO THIS.

NOW WE INVITED HIM IN

OUR FINANCES BECAUSE WE

WERE TRUSTING HIM WITH

THEM.

Reporter: THEY SAY

ONCE THEY STARTED TITHING,

THEY SAW GOD AT WORK IN

THEIR FINANCES, STARTING

WITH JOE'S JOB AT A

TRUCKING COMPANY.

IT WAS WITHIN 30 DAYS

AFTER WE STARTED DOING THE

10%, I GOT A PHONE CALL

FROM OUR OWNER, AND HE

SAID, HEY, WE WANT YOU TO

BE THE DIRECTOR IN OUR

SOUTHERN CAL BRANCH.

SIX MONTHS LATER, I HAD

ANOTHER PROMOTION TO BE

THE VICE PRESIDENT OF

SALES FOR THAT PARTICULAR

REGION.

WE HAD MORE MONEY TO

PAY BILLS.

WE ENDED UP REALLY

FOCUSING ON OUR DEBT.

Reporter: OVER THE

YEARS, THEY KEPT GIVING

AND CHIPPING AWAY AT THEIR

DEBT.

TODAY JOE AND REBECCA ARE

NEARLY DEBT-FREE.

I TRULY FEEL LIKE WE'RE

BLESSED.

OUR FINANCES ARE IN ORDER.

WE FEEL CONFIDENT AND

COMFORTABLE THAT GOD

CONTINUES TO PROVIDE FOR

US, AND WE'RE ABLE TO

CONTINUE TO DO THE THINGS

AND BLESS PEOPLE WHEN WE

CAN.

HE DOES TELL YOU TO

TEST HIM IN THAT SPECIFIC

THING, YOU KNOW, FINANCES.

BECAUSE I THINK HE DESIRES

TO SHOW HIS FAITHFULNESS

TO YOU.

Gordon: HE DESIRES TO

SHOW HIS FAITHFULNESS.

ISN'T THAT WONDERFUL?

GOD WANTS TO SHOW OFF.

HE WANTS TO SHOW HOW

FAITHFUL HE IS.

HE LITERALLY CHALLENGES

US, TEST ME IN THIS.

HERE ARE THE WORDS FROM

PROVERBS: "HONOR THE LORD

WITH YOUR POSSESSIONS, AND

WITH THE FIRST FRUITS OF

ALL OF YOUR INCREASE, SO

YOU'RYOUR BARNS WILL BE FILLED

WITH PLENTY AND YOUR VATS

WILL OVERFLOW WITH NEW

WINE."

JOE AND REBECCA LIVED THAT

WAY, AND YOU SAW THE

RESULTS OF WHAT HAPPENED

WHEN THEY CHANGED THEIR

IDEA ABOUT GIVING.

AND WHEN THEY GAVE, GOD

HONORED THEM.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS.

SOME PARTNERS FROM

VIRGINIA AND CALIFORNIA

SAID THEY WANT TO

CHALLENGE OTHERS TO GIVE.

AND SO FOR THE NEXT -- I

THINK UNTIL THE END OF THE

HOUR, THEY ARE GOING TO

CHALLENGE YOU $90,000.

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS.

WE ASK FOR INCREASE.

WE ASK FOR THE

MULTIPLICATION THAT ONLY

YOU GIVE.

30, 60, 100-FOLD.

BLESS PEOPLE, LORD.

SHOW OFF YOUR

FAITHFULNESS, AND

ENCOURAGE THEM, AND SPEAK

TO THEM, FOR WE ASK IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

THE CHALLENGE IS $90,000.

THAT MEANS YOUR GIVING

WILL AUTOMATICALLY MATCHED

UP TO AND INCLUDING THAT

AMOUNT.

GORDON?

Gordon: WELL,

DANIELLE WAS OUT OF WORK.

AND IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE

HE WAS OUT OF MONEY AS

WELL.

SHE WAS DOWN TO HER LAST

$40 WHEN SHE MADE AN

INVESTMENT THAT GOT AN

IMMEDIATE RETURN THE VERY

NEXT DAY.

Reporter: A FEW SHORT

YEARS AGO, DANIELLE CRISP

LOST HER JOB AS A

HAIRSTYLIST AND WAS

SCRAPING TO GET BY.

IN ORDER TO KEEP FOOD ON

THE TABLE FOR HER AND HER

SONS, MATTHEW AND DERRICK,

SHE REGULARLY VISITED

LOCAL FOOD PANTRIES.

I WOULD GO CHURCH TO

CHURCH JUST TO PUT FOOD ON

THE TABLE.

Reporter: THEN ONE

DAY DANIELLE CAME ACROSS

"THE 700 CLUB."

AND PAT ROBERTSON WAS

TALKING ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN WE GIVE.

I SAT DOWN AND REALLY

STARTED TAKING IT IN.

Reporter: AND THEN

GORDON PRAYED.

Gordon: FOR THOSE

WATCHING AND MAKING

DECISIONS, SPEAK TO THEM,

BLESS THEM, AND ENCOURAGE

THEM.

FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

I JUST FELT GOD'S

PRESENCE.

I FELT LIKE HE SAID, YOU

CAN START AT $20 A MONTH.

I HAD $40 TO MY NAME.

I WAS, LIKE, OKAY, GOD,

YOU KNOW I HAVE $40 AND I

NEED THIS AND I NEED THAT.

I SAID, IF YOU'RE REAL,

YOU'LL PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

Reporter: SO SHE SENT

A CHECK FOR $20 TO CBN.

THE NEXT DAY A FRIEND

STOPPED BY AND ASKED

DANIELLE FOR A HAIRCUT AND

PAID HER $20.

I WAS, LIKE, WOW GOD IS

ANSWERING A PRAYER.

IT MADE ME START THINKING.

Reporter: DANIELLE

REALIZED SHE COULD TRUST

GOD WITH ALL OF HER

PRAYERS.

THE FIRST THING THAT

HAPPENED IS I GOT A JOB.

THAT JOB ENDED AFTER A

YEAR, AND THEN I GOT A

BETTER-PAYING JOB.

WITH THAT BETTER-PAYING

JOB, I GAVE MORE.

AND EVERY TIME I GAVE

MORE, I GOT BLESSED MORE.

Reporter: TODAY

DANIELLE TEACHES THE

PRE-SCHOOL CLASSES AT HER

CHURCH AND RECENTLY MOVED

INTO A NEW HOME WITH HER

BOYS.

GOD IS BIGGER THAN I

EVER THOUGHT HE WAS.

IT MEANS SO MUCH TO TAKE

CARE OF MY FAMILY, TO BE

THERE AND SUPPORT MY KIDS

LIKE THEY'VE NEVER KNOWN

BEFORE.

YOU CAN'T OUT GIVE GOD.

Gordon: GOD IS BIGGER

THAN I EVER THOUGHT HE

WAS.

WHEN YOU START

UNDERSTANDING THAT, THAT

HE IS ABLE TO DO

EXCEEDINGLY ABOVE ALL YOU

COULD EVER ASK OR THINK,

AND ALL HE IS LOOKING FOR

IS A HEART THAT IS LOYAL

TO HIM.

HERE IS THE VERSE 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."

AND DANIELLE LEARNED THAT

VERY TANGIBLY.

SHE WAS DOWN TO HER LAST,

AND SHE SAID, WHAT DO I DO

NOW?

SE SAIDSHE SAID, I'M GOING TO

TRUST GOD.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT,

CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

HOW MUCH IS IT?

JUST $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS

A DAY.

SOME OF YOU CAN JOIN AT A

HIGHER LEVEL, AND WE HAVE

"700 CLUB" GOLD, WHICH IS

$40.

AT WHATEVER LEVEL, CALL US

NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

> 24 YEARS AGO, ALTHEA

WAS AN IMMIGRANT.

TODAY SHE IS MORE

SUCCESSFUL THAN SHE EVER

THOUGHT POSSIBLE, AND SHE

IS GOING TO SHARE HER

SECRET WITH YOU.

Reporter: CBN PARTNER

ALTHEA DEVENISH MOVED TO

THE U.S. FROM TRINIDAD TO

BECOME A PHARMACIST.

SHE UNDERSTOOD THE VALUE

OF WORKING HARD AND SAVING

MONEY.

EVEN AT THE AGE OF

EIGHT OR NINE, I WAS

CLEANING HOUSES AND

WASHING FOR THE HOUSEHOLD.

SHE ALWAYS TOLD US, NO

MATTER WHAT IS GOING ON,

SAVE SOMETHING FOR

TOMORROW.

Reporter: SHE PRIDED

HERSELF ON HER WORK ETHIC,

AND THINGS WERE GOING

WELL.

BUT THERE WAS STILL

SOMETHING MISSING IN HER

LIFE.

IN 1991, SHE BECAME A

CHRISTIAN AND BEGAN

STUDYING THE BIBLE.

WHEN I GAVE MY LIFE TO

THE LORD, THAT'S WHEN I

GOT INTO THE MEAT OF THE

WORD.

AND THE MEAT OF THE WORD

IS WHAT CHANGED MY LIFE.

Reporter: ONE THING

SHE LEARNED WAS THE

IMPORTANCE OF TITHING AND

TRUSTING GOD WITH HER

FINANCES.

ONE OF THE FIRST

MESSAGES WHEN I WENT TO

CHURCH WAS THE BLESSING OF

DEUTERONOMY 28.

AND SO I WAS ABLE TO HEAR

ALL THAT GOD HAD IN STORE

FOR ME.

IT WAS NO LONGER MY MIGHT

AND MY BRAIN AND MY

ABILITY OR MY

INTELLIGENCE, EVEN THOUGH

ALL OF THAT GOD WOULD USE,

BUT NOW I WAS CONNECTED TO

THE SOURCE OF WISDOM, THE

SOURCE OF POWER, AND THE

SOURCE OF STRENGTH.

I STARTED TITHING RIGHT

AWAY.

BY THE GRACE OF GOD, I

HAVE NEVER MISSED TITHING.

Reporter: SHE SAYS AS

SHE TITHED, GOD WAS ALWAYS

FAITHFUL.

LIKE THE TIME HER COMPANY

WAS BOUGHT OUT, AND SHE

CASHED OUT HER STOCK

OPTIONS TO BEGIN INVESTING

IN RENTAL PROPERTIES.

BY THE GRACE OF GOD --

I DON'T KNOW HOW WE DID

IT -- SOMEONE BROUGHT THE

MONEY IN AND I BECAME

DEBT-FREE.

Reporter: SHE SAYS AS

GOD BLESSED HER, SHE

WANTED TO BLESS OTHERS

THROUGH GIVING.

SO THE SHE BECAME A CBN

PARTNER.

I LOVE WHAT CBN DOES.

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS IN

WHAT PART OF THE WORLD,

YOU'RE THERE.

YOU'RE ALWAYS HELPING THE

POOR AND HELPING A CHILD.

BECAUSE HERE I AM.

I CANNOT GO AND FIND THAT

CHILD.

BUT I GIVE TO CBN AND THIS

CHILD HAS A GOOD LIFE.

THAT'S WHY IT IS

IMPORTANT.

WHEN YOU'RE CONNECTING

WITH A MINISTRY, YOU'RE

CONNECTING TO SOMEBODY

STRONG.

I DO BELIEVE THAT THE

ANOINTING THAT I'M WALKING

IN RIGHT NOW IS BECAUSE OF

THE PEOPLE I'M CONNECTED

TO.

Reporter: ALTHEA IS

STILL WORKING AS A

PHARMACIST AND PROSPERING

WITH HER RENTAL

PROPERTIES.

WHILE SHE STILL BELIEVES

IN HARD WORK, SHE KNOWS

THE TRUE BLESSINGS COME

FROM GOD.

BY THE GRACE OF GOD, I

CAN EVEN GIVE OR LOVE OR

HAVE COMPASSION.

BUT THANK GOD HE IS HERE.

ONCE YOU SAY YES, LORD,

U.S. ME, SEND ME.

HE WILL BRING THE MONEY TO

YOU.

YOU BRING THE HOMES AND

THE INVESTMENTS AND

WHATEVER WE NEED BECAUSE

HE KNOWS IF HE CAN GET IT

TO US, IT CAN FLOW THROUGH

US TO WHEREVER IT IS

NEEDED.

Gordon: WHAT A

WONDERFUL CONCEPT.

GOD WANTS TO PROVIDE.

AND WHEN YOU'RE IN HIM --

IF YOU'RE AT THE SOURCE OF

WISDOM, YOU'RE AT THE

SOURCE OF BLESSING, THEN

AMAZING THINGS CAN HAPPEN.

BUT WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO

DO THAT?

WELL, YOU HAVE TO LIVE

YOUR LIFE IN ACCORDANCE

WITH WHAT HE TELLS YOU.

AND WHAT HE LAYS OUT VERY

CLEARLY IN THE BIBLE.

AND HE SAYS, IT'S NOT EVER

GOING TO BE YOUR OWN HARD

WORK OR YOUR OWN SMARTS

THAT BRINGS IT TO YOU.

THE IT IS THE LORD, YOUR

GOD, WHO GIVES YOU THE

POWER TO GET WEALTH.

THAT'S WHAT THAT VERSE WAS

FROM DEUTERONOMY.

GOD IS THE SOURCE.

AND WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND

IT, AND YOU SAY I'M GOING

TO LINE UP WITH THE

SOURCE, THAT'S WHEN THE

BLESSINGS COME.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT,

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE

GOSPEL PREACHED AROUND THE

WORLD, IF YOU WANT TO SEE

PEOPLE HELPED AROUND THE

WORLD, CALL US NOW:

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WHEN YOU CALL, ASK FOR

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING WHERE THE BANK DOES

ALL OF THE WORK.

WE SAVE SO MUCH ON THE

PROCESSING, WE CAN SEND AS

OUR GIFT TO YOU, "POWER

FOR LIFE," MONTHLY

TEACHING C.D.s.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE THOSE,

ASK FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS

WHEN YOU CALL.

LET'S GO OVER TO WENDY AT

THE PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS,

GORDON.

IF YOU THINK YOU'RE TOO

BUSY TO STOP AND READ THE

BIBLE, THINK AGAIN.

PAT ROBERTSON RECENTLY

RECORDED A SERIES OF

SCRIPTURES THAT YOU CAN

LISTEN TO ANYWHERE.

IT IS ALL HERE ON HIS NEW

D.V.D., "THE TRANSFORMING

WORD."

Wendy: LIFE CAN BE

KIND OF SCARY SOMETIMES,

CAN'T IT?

BUT IF YOU'RE A CHILD OF

GOD, YOU DON'T HAVE TO

LIVE IN FEAR.

GOD DOESN'T WANT YOU TO

HAVE FEAR.

HE PROMISES PEACE TO YOU.

BUT WE HAVE TO DO OUR

PART.

BECAUSE FAITH COMES BY

HEARING.

THAT'S WHY IT IS SO

IMPORTANT TO HEAR AND

MEDITATE ON THE WORD OF

GOD.

THAT'S WHY THIS NEW

TEACHING, CALLED "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD," VERSES

TO OVERCOME FEAR AND FILL

YOUR LIFE WITH CONFIDENCE

TERRY?

Terry: DID YOU EVER

HAVE IT HAPPEN WHERE

YOU'RE WATCHING A STORY ON

TV, AND YOU THINK I WISH I

COULD DO SOMETHING TO HELP

THEM.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "700

CLUB," YOU'RE HELPING

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD.

LIKE THESE TWINS FROM

GUATEMALA.

WITHOUT HELP FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING," THEY

WOULD HAVE BEEN BLIND FOR

THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.

ALBILA AND ALBA ARE

IDENTICAL TWINS.

BECAUSE THEY ARE NEARLY

BLIND, THEY MUST FEEL

THEIR WAY ALONG THIS FENCE

IN ORDER TO WALK TO

SCHOOL.

WE SEE WHAT IS NEAR.

WE DON'T SEE ANYTHING

FARTHER.

WE HAVE MANY HEADACHES.

Terry: THEIR JUVENILE

CATARACTS STARTED

DEVELOPING SOON AFTER THEY

WERE BORN.

TO NAVIGATE AROUND THEIR

HOUSE, THEIR DAD TAUGHT

THEM TO COUNT THE STEPS

BETWEEN ROOMS.

WE COUNT TWO STEPS FROM

THE KITCHEN TO THE

BEDROOM.

Terry: AND ATTENDING

SCHOOL IS BECOMING MORE

AND MORE OF A CHALLENGE.

WE OFTEN FEEL SAD.

SOME DAYS WE FEEL LIKE

QUITTING SCHOOL AND

STAYING HOME.

Terry: WHEN THE

GIRLS' PARENTS COULDN'T

AFFORD SURGERY, THEY

TURNED TO AN OLD FOLK

TRADITION FOR HELP.

WE THOUGHT WE CAN TAKE

THE CURSE AWAY FROM THE

GIRLS, RUBBING THEIR EYES.

Terry: OWE "OPERATION SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" ARRANGED TO TAKE

THE GIRLS TO A HOSPITAL IN

THE CITY.

THERE A SIMPLE SURGERY

CHANGED EVERYTHING.

BEFORE, I COULD NOT SEE

HARDLY ANYTHING.

NOW I CAN SEE EVERYTHING.

I CAN SEE THE COCONUTS

ON THE TOP OF OUR TREE.

I CAN SEE MY HOUSE.

AND ALL OF THE ANIMALS

PASSING BY.

Terry: THE GIRLS HAVE

NOW RETURNED TO SCHOOL,

FILLED WITH HOPE.

[CHEERING]

THANKS TO "OPERATION

BLESSING" FOR OPERATING ON

MY EYES.

THANKS TO GOD AND A BIG

APPLAUSE TO THEM.

Terry: THE GIFT OF

SIGHT, IT'S REALLY MORE

THAN JUST SIGHT.

IT'S A COMPLETE OPENING UP

OF THEIR FUTURE.

ALL THEIR TOMORROWS WILL

BE DIFFERENT BECAUSE YOU

CARED ENOUGH TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE, "700 CLUB"

WE SAY THANK YOU.

AND TO THE REST OF YOU WHO

DIFFERENCE.

GORDON?

Gordon: WELL, A FEW

YEARS AGO, VINCE AND TRACY

MARTELLA HAD NO IDEA WHERE

THEIR NEXT MEAL WAS COMING

FROM.

VINCE WAS IN SCHOOL, AND

TRACY HAD JUST LOST HER

JOB.

AND SOMETIMES THEY HAD TO

CHOOSE BETWEEN PAYING THE

MORTGAGE AND FEEDING THEIR

FAMILY.

Reporter: THE

MARTELLA FAMILY LOVES

EVERYTHING BASEBALL.

BUT AMERICA'S PASTTIME WAS

THE LAST THING ON THEIR

MINDS AFTER TRACY WAS LET

GO AT WORK.

I WAS DEVASTATED

BECAUSE I HAD LOST A JOB

AND I THOUGHT THAT WOULD

BE MY CAREER.

ALL I COULD THINK IS HOW

AM I GOING TO FEED MY

KIDS.

Reporter: VINCE WAS

WORKING HARD TO FINISH A

TRADE SCHOOL, WHILE TRACY

TOOK ANY JOB SHE COULD,

LIKE CLEANING HOUSES FOR

FRIENDS.

I FELT THAT WAS A

REFLECTION ON ME, AND IT

WAS HARD.

I REMEMBER FEELING

HELPLESS.

THE MORE WE CUT BACK, THE

MORE IMPOSSIBLE IT LOOKED.

I DECIDED AT THAT POINT,

GOD, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE

TO DO SOMETHING.

Reporter: THE

MARTELLAS TURNED TO GOD

FOR COMFORT AND STAYED IN

CONSTANT PRAYER.

AND THEN A FRIEND TOLD

THIS ABOUT AN "OPERATION

BLESSING" PARTNER, "HOUSE

OF HOPE."

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 HELP TO

MORE THAN 1500 FAMILIES IN

GEORGIA.

WE STARTED GOING EVERY

WEEK AND WE WOULD MAKE IT

THROUGH.

I WOULD COME HOME AND

SEE THOSE GROCERIES AND I

WOULD KNOW SHE DIDN'T

SPEND ALL OF THIS MONEY AT

A GROCERY STORE BECAUSE WE

DIDN'T HAVE THAT KIND OF

MONEY.

AND IT WOULD BLOW ME AWAY.

Reporter: VINCE

EVENTUALLY FOUND A JOB AS

A PROPERTY MANAGER WHILE

TRACY STARTED TUTORING FOR

A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.

THEY'RE NOW ON TOP OF

THEIR BILLS AND EXPENSES

AND VOLUNTEERING AT "HOUSE

OF HOPE."

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

CHILDREN.

Gordon: IF YOU'RE A

MEMBER OF "THE 700 CLUB,"

THANK YOU FOR MAKING THAT

POSSIBLE.

AND THAT IS HAPPENING

ACROSS AMERICA.

WE'RE FEEDING --

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

FEEDING THREE MILLION

AMERICANS THROUGH FOOD

PANTRIES, CHURCHES

INVOLVED IN FOOD

MINISTRIES.

OUR TRUCKS ARE ROLLING

LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE

DAY.

WE ARE SUPPLYING THEM WITH

THE FOOD THEY NEED SO THAT

THEY CAN HELP OTHERS.

LET ME ASK YOU, WHAT ARE

YOU AFRAID OF?

NOT LONG AGO, WE HIT THE

STREETS TO ASK PEOPLE THAT

QUESTION, AND WE GOT SOME

INTERESTING ANSWERS.

Reporter: RECENTLY WE

ASKED PEOPLE, WHAT ARE YOU

AFRAID OF?

MY WIFE.

UNKNOWN.

CLOSED PLACES.

Reporter: THEN WE

ASKED THEM TO LISTEN TO

EXCERPTS FROM "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD," VOLUME

TWO.

FOR THE LORD, YOUR GOD,

HE IS THE ONE WHO GOES

WITH YOU.

HE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU NOR

FORSAKE YOU.

IT IS GOOD STUFFMEN STUFF.

I AGREE TOTALLY.

Reporter: CALL NOW TO

RECEIVE YOUR COPY OF "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD," VOLUME

TWO, VERSES TO OVERCOME

FEAR AND EXPERIENCE PEACE.

Wendy: EVER WONDER

WHY GOD SAYS SO MANY TIMES

IN HIS WORD, DO NOT FEAR?

BECAUSE HE KNEW WE WERE

GOING TO NEED IT.

SOMEBODY OUT THERE RIGHT

NOW NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT GOD

IS SAYING TO YOU.

AND HE IS SAYING, DO NOT

FEAR.

I AM WITH YOU.

I AM FOR YOU.

I'M GOING TO HELP YOU.

I'VE GOT THIS.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

TRUST HIM AND MEDITATE ON

HIS WORD.

HE IS A GOOD GOD.

WE HAVE THE THING THAT IS

GOING TO HELP YOU AND

ENCOURAGE YOUR FAITH.

IT IS CALLED "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD,"

OVERCOMING WORD AND

ANXIETY IN YOUR LIFE.

IT IS ACTUALLY HARDER TO

STAY IN FEAR AND TO STAY

IN WORRY THAN TO STAY IN

THE PEACE OF GOD.

JUST A LITTLE BIT OF TIME

SPENT WITH THE FATHER AND

MEDITATING TO HIS WORD CAN

CHANGE EVERYTHING.

WE WANT YOU TO LIVE IN

VICTORY.

WE WANT YOU TO BE AN

OVERCOMER.

GORDON?

Gordon: THAT'S RIGHT,

I DO.

> AS A FREE LANCE

PHOTOGRAPHER, JOHN JACKSON

WAS DROWNING IN DEBT.

HE EVEN HAD TO SELL HIS

CAR JUST TO PAY HIS BILLS.

THEN ONE DAY JOHN MADE A

DECISION THAT MORE THAN

DOUBLED HIS INCOME.

Reporter: JOHN

JACKSON WORKS IN A PAINT

STORE, BUT ON THE

WEEKENDS, HE LOVES WORKING

AS A FREE LANCE

PHOTOGRAPHER.

HE IS ALSO A PARTNER WITH

CBN.

THEY SHOW WHAT THEY'RE

DOING EVERY DAY, EVERY

WEEK, WHETHER IT IS

ORPHANAGES, WHETHER IT IS

AROUND THE WORLD OR HERE

IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

THEY SHOW WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

AND TO ME, BASED ON WHAT

I'VE LEARNED THROUGH

SCRIPTURE, THAT'S GOOD

GROUND.

IF THAT'S GOOD GROUND,

THEN YOU'LL GET A HARVEST.

Reporter: IN 1995,

JOHN STARTED GIVING $20 A

MONTH.

HE SAYS SOON AFTER THAT,

GOD PROMPTED HIM TO GIVE

$84 A MONTH, BUT JOHN

RESISTED.

I'M, LIKE, I CAN'T

AFFORD THAT.

Reporter: AT THE

TIME, JOHN WAS STRUGGLING

WITH HIS FINANCES AND

RIDING A BIKE TO WORK.

HE HAD A FULL-TIME JOB AT

A LOCAL PAINT STORE, BUT

HIS CAR NEEDED EXPENSIVE

REPAIRS AND HE HAD TO SELL

IT AT A LOSS JUST TO MAKE

ENDS MEET.

ONE DAY I WAS RIDING,

AND I WAS, LIKE, LORD I'M

TIRED OF THIS.

WHAT'S NEXT?

AGAIN, YOU NEED TO GIVE

PLEDGE EXPRESS, THIS IS

HOW MUCH.

NOT JUST GIVE THIS MUCH,

BUT PLEDGE EXPRESS IT.

HE WAS SPECIFIC ON WHAT HE

WANTED ME TO DO.

Reporter: FINALLY

JOHN INCREASED HIS CBN

PLEDGE TO $84 A MONTH.

WHEN I MADE UP MY MIND

TO DO IT, THAT'S WHEN THE

PROMOTIONS STARTED COMING.

NOW I JUST RECENTLY GOT

PROMOTED TO STORE MANAGER.

AND THAT WELL OVER DOUBLED

MY PAY.

Reporter: IN ADDITION

TO HIS PROMOTION, JOHN SAW

GOD AT WORK IN OTHER WAYS.

FOR ONE THING, HIS

PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS TOOK

OFF.

I'M GETTING MORE HITS

ON MAY WEBSITE.

IT HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED.

IT HAS MORE THAN TRIPLED.

AND I FOUND A CAR, IN

EXCELLENT CONDITION, FOR

$2200.

THE BLUE BOOK SAYS IT IS

WORTH $3800.

IT'S GOD.

I'M JUST FOLLOWING HIS

PRINCIPLES.

Reporter: JOHN SAYS

HE LEARNED THOSE

PRINCIPLES IN PART FROM

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I HEAR CBN TALK ABOUT

IT ALL OF THE TIME.

THEY USE THE SCRIPTURE,

YOU SOW SPARINGLY, YOU

REAP SPARING.

YOU SOW ABUNDANTLY, AND

YOU'LL REAP ABUNDANTLY.

AND I'VE SEEN IT IN MY OWN

LIFE.

Reporter: JOHN

BELIEVES OBEDIENCE IS KEY

TO UNLOCKING GOD'S

BLESSINGS.

YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO

TITHE.

YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO

SOW INTO A MINISTRY LIKE

CBN.

JUST BE OBEDIENT TO GOD.

LISTEN TO WHAT HE IS

TELLING YOU.

GET INVOLVED.

PARTNER WITH CBN, AND

YOU'LL BE BLESSED.

Gordon: JOHN KNOWS

THE SECRET.

JUST OBEY.

LISTEN TO WHAT HE TELLS

YOU AND THEN THE BLESSINGS

WILL COME.

TERRY?

Terry: MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DISPLACED

BY THE SYRIAN CIVIL WAR,

AND MANY OF THEM HAVE

FOUND SAFETY IN COUNTRIES

LIKE TURKEY.

BUT NOW THEY'RE TRAPPED IN

REFUGEE CAMPS AND THEY'RE

STRUGGLING FOR BASIC

NECESSITIES.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: BEFORE

LEAVING SYRIA, HASAN AND

HIS FAMILY LIVED A

COMFORTABLE LIFE, IN A BIG

HOUSE ON THEIR OWN FARM.

NOW THE WHOLE FAMILY LIVES

IN ONE SMALL TENT IN RURAL

TURKEY, AND THEY'RE

STRUGGLING TO MAKE IT.

OUR HOME WAS DESTROYED

IN THE WAR.

AND WE HAD TO RUN FOR OUR

LIVES.

WE CAME HERE TO ESCAPE THE

FIGHTING AND LOOK FOR

WORK.

Reporter: FINDING

EVERY DAY NECESSITIES LIKE

WATER IS HARD ENOUGH, BUT

WHILE WE DELIVERED FOOD TO

THE CAMP, HASAN TOLD US

THE KIDS AND ALL OF THE

FAMILIES WERE TERRIFIED OF

SNAKES CRAWLING INTO THE

TENTS AFTER DARK.

AND WE FOUNTAIN OUT H ALSO FOUND OUT HE

IS SEVERELY DIABETIC AND

IS SICK.

I AM VERY SICK.

I WORK IN THE FIELDS AFTER

I'M ABOUT TO PASS OUT, AND

THEN EAT A SUGAR CUBE.

Reporter: HE SHOWED

US HIS TENT AND HIS

DWINDLING SUPPLY OF

INSULIN.

I'M SO WORRIED ABOUT

WHAT MY FAMILY WOULD DO

WITHOUT ME, THAT I CAN'T

SLEEP AT NIGHT.

SOMETIMES I HAVE PANIC

ATTACKS AND CAN'T CONTROL

MY BREATHING.

Reporter: TWO DAYS

LATER WE WENT BACK TO THE

CAMP WITH A FRESH SUPPLY

OF INSULIN FOR HASAN AND A

FEW SURPRISES FOR ALL OF

THE FAMILY.

WE GOT A WATER TANK AND

HOOKED UP A HOSE FOR THE

CAMP.

WE ALSO RAN ELECTRICITY TO

EVERY TENT AND SET UP

LIGHTS.

NOW THAT WE HAVE

LIGHTS, WE WON'T HAVE TO

BE AFRAID OF SNAKES

ANYMORE.

Reporter: SO WE

BROUGHT FOOD, WATER,

ELECTRICITY, AND MEDICINE

TO THIS LITTLE REFUGEE

CAMP.

AND NOW OUR LOCAL

MISSIONARY IS TALKING TO

EVERYBODY ABOUT JESUS

CHRIST.

HERE IN TURKEY, CBN IS

REACHING OUT TO THOSE MOST

IN NEED, SHARING THE LOVE

OF CHRIST AND BRINGING

HOPE FOR A BETTER FUTURE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

THE INSULIN.

AND WITH THE HELP YOU

BROUGHT TO US.

WE CAN REST AT EASE FOR A

WHILE.

WE'VE BEEN RUNNING FROM

THE WAR FOR A LONG TIME.

YOU'RE THE FIRST PEOPLE

WHO HAVE HELPED US.

Terry: EVERY NIGHT ON

THE NEWS WE SEE STORIES

SHARING THE PLIGHT OF

THESE PEOPLE, PEOPLE WHO

DON'T HAVE ANYWHERE TO

BELONG, ANYWHERE TO ESCAPE

TO, WHO YOU JUST MAKING IT

THAT IS ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING, BUT IT MEANS YOUR

BANK DOES ALL OF THE WORK.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE

STAMPS OR ENVELOPES TO

REMEMBER ANYTHING.

IT IS ALL DONE FOR YOU.

YOU CAN STOP AT ANY TIME

IT SAVES US SOME

PROCESSING COST SO WE CAN

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

Gordon: FOR A

10-YEAR-OLD GIRL IN INDIA,

"SUPERBOOK" IS MORE THAN

JUST A CARTOON.

IT IS A WAY TO TEACH HER

ENTIRE FAMILY ABOUT JESUS.

Reporter: 10-YEAR-OLD

LYDIA LOVES PLAYING WITH

HER GRANDFATHER.

WHEN HE SUDDENLY BECAME

ILL, SHE WAS HEARTBROKEN.

HIS HANDS AND LEGS

STARTED HURTING A LOT.

SO WHEN HE COULD NOT WALK

FOR SEVERAL MONTHS, I FED

HIM AND TOOK CARE OF HIM.

Reporter: LYDIA'S

GRANDFATHER WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH SEVERE DIABETES,

WHICH CAUSED PARTIAL

PARALYSIS.

THE MEDICATION PRESCRIBED

FOR HIM DID NOT HELP.

HE HAD TO GIVE UP HIS JOB

AS A GARDENER FOR THE

GOVERNMENT AND COULD NO

LONGER PROVIDE FOR HIS

FAMILY.

AND SO LYDIA'S MOTHER GOT

A JOB FOR A TAILER SHOP

RUN BY THE LOCAL CHURCH.

WHEN I WENT THERE, I

LEARNED HOW TO DANCE, SING

SONGS, PRAY, AND READ THE

BIBLE.

THEY ALSO SHOWED US

"SUPERBOOK."

ONE OF THE STORIES WAS

ABOUT A MAN WHO WAS

PARALYZED.

JESUS TOLD HIM, YOUR SINS

ARE FORGIVEN.

GET UP.

AND IMMEDIATELY THE MAN

STOOD UP.

SO I BELIEVED IF I PRAYED

TO JESUS, HE WOULD LISTEN

TO MY PRAYERS AND HEAL MY

GRANDFATHER.

Reporter: LYDIA ALSO

ASKED THE PASTOR FOR

HELPMENT.

>HELP.

AT THE CHURCH, THEY

BEGAN TO PRAY FOR HIM.

THEN I TALKED TO HIM AND

READ HIS SCRIPTURES BOW ABOUT

GOD'S HEALING POWERS.

THEN HE PRAYED FOR ME,

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I

STARTED GETTING BETTER.

IT WASN'T LONG AND I GOT

UP AND STARTED WALKING.

Reporter: IN LESS

THAN A MONTH, LYDIA'S

GRANDFATHER FELT SO WELL,

THAT HE WENT BACK TO WORK.

BOTH HE AND LYDIA HAVE NO

DOUBT WHO HEALED HIM.

I KNEW JESUS HEALED ME

AFTER MY GRANDDAUGHTER AND

THE CHURCH PRAYED FOR ME.

SO I ASKED HIM TO BE MY

ONE TRUE GOD.

AFTER MY GRANDFATHER

WAS HEALED, I PRAYED TO

JESUS TO COME INTO MY

HEART.

I WANTED TO LIVE AS HIS

CHILD FROM THAT DAY ON.

Reporter: LYDIA IS

PRAYING FOR THE REST OF

HER FAMILY TO GIVE THEIR

LIVES TO CHRIST, TOO.

MY BROTHER LIKES IT A

LOT WHEN I READ HIM

STORIES FROM THE BIBLE AND

WATCH "SUPERBOOK" WITH

HIM.

HE SEES HOW HAPPY I'VE

BEEN EVER SINCE I ACCEPTED

JESUS INTO MY LIFE.

Gordon: IT IS

WONDERFUL.

TAKING THE STORIES OF THE

BIBLE TO THE CHILDREN OF

THE WORLD, AND THEN SEEING

THE FULFILLMENT.

A CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM.

IF YOU HAVE A FAITH AS A

CHILD, YOU CAN ENTER THE

KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

IT IS WONDERFUL WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN YOU PREACH

THE GOSPEL TO CHILDREN.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART

OF IT, JOIN "700 CLUB."

TERRY?

Terry: FOR A WI WIDOW IN

SOUTH AFRICA, EARNING A

LIVING AND TAKING CARE OF

SIX CHILDREN WASN'T EASY,

AND DAYCARE WAS OUT OF THE

QUESTION UNTIL "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" STEPPED IN TO

HELP.

4-YEAR-OLD NISOLE IS THE

YOUNGEST OF HER FIVE

SIBLINGS.

HER FATHER DIED WHEN SHE

WAS VERY YOUNG, LEAVING

HER FAMILY WITH NO ONE BUT

THEIR MOTHER TO TAKE CARE

OF THEM.

SHE WAS TOO YOUNG TO

UNDERSTAND.

SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHERE HE

HAD GONE.

Terry: WHILE NIZOLE'S

BROTHERS AND SISTERS WENT

TO SCHOOL, SHE SPENT THE

DAY WITH HER MOTHER, WHO

SOLD CANDY ON THE STREETS

AND AT SCHOOL.

I HAD NO ONE WHO COULD

TAKE CARE OF HER, SO WHILE

I WAS SERVING COSTUMERS,

SHE WOULD WANDER OFF.

Terry: SOMETIMES

NIZOLE STAYED HOME, WHERE

A COUSIN WAS SUPPOSED TO

TAKE CARE OF HER.

BUT ONE DAY LITTLE NIZOLE

WALKED OUT OF THE HOUSE

AND WANDERED THE STREETS

ALONE.

SHE WAS FOUND BY A

CARE-GIVER FROM A

CHILDREN'S CENTER,

SUPPORTED BY "ORPHANS'

PROMISE." TODAY NIZOLE IS

ONE OF 30 CHILDREN

SPONSORED BY "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" TO COME TO THIS

DAYCARE CENTER FOR FREE.

BEFORE SHE WAS IN

DAYCARE, SHE USED TO BE

VERY SHY.

BUT NOW NIZOLE PLAYS WITH

OTHER CHILDREN.

NOW THAT I KNOW MY

DAUGHTER IS SAFE, I GET

ALL OF MY WORK DONE MORE

QUICKLY.

WHEN I GET HOME, WE SPEND

QUALITY TIME TOGETHER.

Terry: NIZOLE'S MOM

WAS RUNNING LOW ON

SUPPLIES FOR HER BUSINESS.

SO WE GAVE HER NEW STOCK

AND ENOUGH FOOD TO GET

AHEAD.

WE ALSO GAVE THEM NEW,

WARM CLOTHES FOR THE

COMING WINTER.

I THANK GOD FOR HELPING

US.

Terry: HOW CAN THEY

HEAR IF THEIR NEED IS SO

GREAT?

YOU STEP IN, YOU MAKE A

DIFFERENCE, YOU MEET THEIR

NEED, AND YOU SHARE THE

LOVE OF GOD WITH THEM.

IT'S A WIN.

AND YOU CAN BE A PART OF

THAT AROUND THE WORLD, AS

WELL AS HERE AT HOME.

CBN IS WORKING IN ALL OF

THESE AREAS.

AND WE WANT YOU TO HELP US

EXPAND WHAT WE'RE DOING,

DEEPEN THE WORK THAT WE'RE

DOING, SO THAT MORE PEOPLE

CAN UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH

GOD LOVES THEM.

AND WE CAN ALSO ALLEVIATE

SO MUCH OF THE NEED IN

THEIR LIVES.

CALL NOW.

BE A PART OF MAKING A

DIFFERENCE.

1-800-759-0700 IS OUR

NUMBER.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT

TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

LOTS OF CLUB LEVELS FOR

Gordon: WELL, IN

INDIA, MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

STILL DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO

CLEAN DRINKING WATER.

FOR ONE WOMAN, THE SEARCH

FOR WATER ALMOST TURNED

DEADLY.

Reporter: CORY FEARED

WALKING TO GET WATER

BECAUSE POISONOUS SNAKES

ARE ALWAYS NEARBY.

ONE TIME I WAS BITTEN

BY A SNAKE WHEN I WAS

GETTING WATER.

MY FAMILY THOUGHT I WAS

GOING TO DIE.

ONE OF THEM TOLD THE

PASTOR WHAT HAPPENED AND

HE CAME TO MY HOUSE AND

PRAYED FOR ME.

AFTER I PRAYED, THE

LORD JESUS CHRIST HEALED

HER.

SHE COMPLETELY RECOVERED.

THAT'S WHEN MY HUSBAND

AND I PUT OUR TRUST IN

JESUS AS THE ONE TRUE GOD.

Reporter: BUT CORY

STILL HAD TO KEEP GOING TO

THE WELL, EVEN THOUGH THE

WATER SHE RISKED HER LIFE

FOR WAS ALMOST AS

DANGEROUS AS THE SNAKES.

IT IS FILLED WITH

GARBAGE, DIRT, AND BUGS.

DRINKING THAT WATER OFTEN

MADE MY HUSBAND AND ME

SICK.

WHEN WE WERE SICK, WE

COULDN'T WORK.

THAT MEANT WE COULDN'T

EAT.

Reporter: THEY KNEW

JESUS COULD DO MIRACLES,

SO THEY ASKED HIM FOR

HELP.

WE PRAYED THAT HE WOULD

SOLVE OUR WATER PROBLEM,

AND SOON CBN CAME TO OUR

VILLAGE AND DUG A WELL.

Reporter: ALL OF THE

VILLAGERS REJOICED,

KNOWING THEY COULD EASILY

AND SAFELY GET CLEAN WATER

FROM CBN'S WELL.

THE WELL IS CLOSE TO

OUR HOME.

NOW WE DON'T HAVE TO WALK

FAR OR BE AFRAID OF SNAKES

WHILE GETTING WATER.

NOW WE WILL NOT GET SICK

FROM DIRTY WATER AND WE

WILL HAVE MORE TIME TO

WORK.

WE THANK GOD AND CBN FOR

MAKING THIS POSSIBLE.

Gordon: JOIN WITH US.

JOIN IN EVERYTHING WE'RE

DOING.

CALL US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, EVERY

YEAR IN THAILAND,

THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN ARE

ABANDONED BY THEIR PARENTS

OR SOLD INTO SLAVERY.

THE 2-YEAR-OLD IN THIS

NEXT STORY MIGHT HAVE BEEN

ONE OF THEM IF SHE HADN'T

BEEN RESCUED BY "ORPHANS'

PROMISE."

Reporter: YOU CAN

PROBABLY TELL BY THE SMILE

ON HER FACE THAT

2-YEAR-OLD DETERRY IS

HAPPEN TO BE PART OF HER

BIG, NEW FAMILY.

SHE LIVES HERE IN THIS

HOME IN THAILAND SPONSORED

BY CBN'S "ORPHANS'

PROMISE." IN THE TWO AND A

HALF YEARS SHE HAS BEEN

HERE, SHE HAS RECEIVED

GOOD FOOD AND THE LOVE OF

CHILDREN SHE NOW CALLS

BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

AND THIS IS ONE OF HER

HOUSE PARENTS, NAMED JIB.

HE HELPS TO GUIDE AND CARE

FOR HER.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD

BROUGHT DETERRY TO US.

WHEN EVERY I LOOK AT HER,

I AM REMINDED OF THE GRACE

AND LOVE OF GOD.

Reporter: NOW

SURROUNDED BY HER BIG

FAMILY, SHE IS THRIVING.

SHE LOVES TO WORSHIP AND

TO RAISE HER LITTLE HANDS

IN PRAISE TO THE LORD.

AND THANKS TO CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE," SHE

WILL HAVE A SAFE PLACE TO

LIVE FOR AS LONG AS SHE

NEEDS IT.

LITTLE DETERRY KNOWS

THAT WE LOVE HER AND THAT

THIS IS HER HOME NOW.

WE WANT TO THANK EVERYONE

WHO HAS HELPED US.

Gordon: YOU CAN BE A

PART OF IT.

IT HAS BEEN A WONDERFUL

DAY.

$131,000 CHALLENGE, AND

AGAINST THAT YOU GAVE

$165,000.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM DEUTERONOMY:

"ALL OF THESE BLESSINGS

SHALL COME UPON YOU AND

OVERTAKE YOU BECAUSE YOU

OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD

YOUR GOD."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

Gordon: WELCOME
