Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

A TEXAS GRAND JURY

INVESTIGATING PLANNED

PARENTHOOD HAS DELIVERED A

SURPRISING DECISION.

Terry: IT IS INDICTED

TWO OF THE PEOPLE BEHIND

THOSE UNDERCOVER VIDEOS

LAST YEAR.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THE

STORY ON THIS UNEXPECTED

TURN OF EVENTS.

Heather: THE HORRIFIC

UNDERCOVER FOOTAGE SHOWS

THE VIDEO-MAKERS PROPOSING

AS SUSPECTED BUYERS OF

FETAL TISSUES.

THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT

BUYING ABORTED BODY PARTS.

THE VIDEOS ALLEGE THAT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD SOLD

THEM FOR PROFIT, A

VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW.

RELEASED THIS PAST SUMMER,

THE FOOTAGE SPARKED

OUTRAGE AMONG MANY PEOPLE

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

IT IS AMAZING THEY

COULD CAPTURE THE VERY

GRUESOMENESS OF THESE

PROCEDURES.

Heather: A HOUSTON

GRAND JURY SAYS THAT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD DID NOT

VIOLATE THE LAW, BUT

THE-MAKERTHEMAKERS OF THE VIDEO DID,

AND CHARGED TWO OF THEM

WITH A FELONY, AND HAS NOT

RELEASED ANY OTHER

DETAILS.

ONE OF THOSE CHARGED,

DAVID DELIDEN, RESPONDED

TO THE INDICTMENTS SAYING

THAT HE USED THE SAME

UNDERCOVER TECHNIQUES AS

INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS,

AND HE FOLLOWED THE LAW.

HE IS THE FOUNDER OF "THE

CENTER FOR MEDICAL

PROGRESS," WHO MADE THE

VIDEOS.

THE GOVERNOR OF TEXAS SAYS

THE INDICTMENT WILL NOT

AFFECT THE STATE'S

INVESTIGATION OF THE

VIDEOS.

AND OTHERS ARE

INVESTIGATING PLANNED

PARENTHOOD AS WELL.

AND SOUTHERN BAPTIST

LEADER RUSSELL MOORE IS

CALLING THE INDICTMENTS

COMPLETE CORRUPTION.

HE NOTES THAT ONE THE

PROSECUTORS IN THE HARRIS

COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S

OFFICE HAS BEEN A PLANNED

PARENTHOOD BOARD MEMBER

SINCE 2013.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: I HAVE TO

SAY, WE DIDN'T SEE THIS

ONE COMING.

AND TALK ABOUT A COMPLETE

REVERSAL.

YOU DON'T INDICT UNLESS

THE PROSECUTORS IN FRONT

OF THE GRAND JURY ARE

ASKING FOR THE

INDICTMENTS, AND SO THAT'S

WHAT'S GOING ON HERE.

AND WHY, I DON'T KNOW.

WE WILL FIND OUT IN THE

TRIAL.

AND IN THAT TRIAL,

HOPEFULLY WE CAN FIND OUT

WERE THESE VIDEOS ALTERED,

LIKE THE ALLEGATIONS THAT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS

MAKING?

WERE THEY SUBSTANTIALLY

ALTERED, OR ARE THEY REAL

VIDEOS OF WHAT PLANNED

PARENTHOOD EMPLOYEES WERE

SAYING.

> WELL, IN OTHER NEWS,

ISIS COULD BE USING FAKE

PASSPORTS TO GET INTO

AMERICA.

AND LAUNCH DEADLY

TERRORIST ATTACKS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

John: THAT IS RIGHT,

GARDGORDON, ISIS HAS CREATED

ITS OWN PASSPORT INDUSTRY.

ABC MUSE IS REPORTING U.S.

HOMELAND SECURITY IS

WARNING THAT ISIS MAY HAVE

ALREADY USED FAKE

PASSPORTS HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES TO ENTER THE

UNITED STATES.

OFFICIALS BELIEVE ISIS CAN

PRODUCE THEM USING BLANK

PASSPORTS AND A PASSPORT

MACHINE CAPTURED IN

EUROPE.

> LESS THAN A WEEK

BEFORE THE IOWA CAUCASUS,

DONALD TRUMP AND TED CRUZ

HOPE TO OVERTAKE THE OTHER

BY WINNING THE COVETED

EVANGELICAL VOTE.

CBN NEWS GAINED EXCLUSIVE

ACCESS INTO TWO MEETINGS

BETWEEN SENATOR CRUZ AND

KEY IOWA PASTORS.

IF DONALD WINS IOWA, HE

RIGHT NOW HAS A

SUBSTANTIAL LEAD IN NEW

HAMPSHIRE.

IF HE WENT ON TO WIN NEW

HAMPSHIRE AS WELL, THERE

IS A VERY GOOD CHANCE HE

COULD BE UNSTOPPABLE AND

BE OUR NOMINEE.

THERE IS ONLY ONE CAMPAIGN

THAT CAN BEAT TRUMP IN

THIS STATE.

AND IF CONSERVATIVES

SIMPLY STAND UP AND UNITE,

THAT'S EVERYTHING.

John: AFTERWARDS CRUZ

SAT DOWN WITH CBN NEWS AND

SEEMED TO TAKE A SHOT AT

TRUMP'S EGO.

THIS ELECTION IS NOT

ABOUT ANY ONE PERSON.

ANY ONE INDIVIDUAL WHO

BELIEVES HE OR SHE WILL

MAKE AMERICA GREAT -- YOU

KNOW WHAT?

FOR SEVEN YEARS WE'VE HAD

A PRESIDENT IN THE WHITE

HOUSE WHO HAS HAD A

MESSIAH COMPLEX.

John: YOU CAN WATCH

MORE OF THE INTERVIEW FROM

INSIDE THE PASTORS'

MEETING ON "THE BRODY

FILE" AT cbnnews.com.

> WORLD LEADERS NEED TO

TAKE THE THREAT OF KILLER

ROBOTS SERIOUSLY.

THE MILITARY COULD USE

KILLER ROBOTS TO TRACK

DOWN AND KILL PEOPLE

WITHOUT BEING GUIDED BY

HUMAN BEINGS.

THOSE ROBOTS DON'T EXIST

YET, BUT THE TECHNOLOGY TO

BUILD THI THEM IS BEING

CONSTRUCTED AROUND THE

WORLD.

THE EXPERTS WARN THEY

COULD BE AS DEADLY AS

NUCLEAR WEAPONS AND NEED

TO BE REGULATED NOW BEFORE

AN ARMS RACE BEGINS.

GORDON, OF COURSE, TO KEEP

THEM OUT OF THE HANDS OF

TERRORISTS.

Gordon: I'M MORE

INTERESTED IN KEEPING THEM

OUT OF THE HANDS OF

GOVERNMENTS.

WE ALREADY HAVE KILLER

DRONES ROAMING THE SKY

THAT CAN RAIN DOWN DEATH

AT THE PUSH OF A BUTTON,

BUT IMAGINE AN AUTONOMOUS

ROBOT BEING ON THE LOOSE.

THIS IS THE STUFF OF

SCIENCE FICTION.

WE SEE THINGS KIND OF

THINGS IN MOVIES, AND IT

NEVER TURNS OUT RIGHT.

WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD WE

TRY TO INVENT THEM.

LET'S REGULATE GOVERNMENTS

AND SAY GOVERNMENTS

SHOULDN'T BE DOING THIS.

THIS IS NOT -- THIS SHOULD

NOT BE PART OF ANY FUTURE

WARFARE.

> WE'LL BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: IT CAN BE

HARD TO RUN A SMALL

BUSINESS, BUT MIKE AND

LESLIE HAVE FIGURED IT

OUT.

THEY HAVE WEATHERED THE

RECESSIONS IN THE PAST,

AND HERE IS WHAT THEY'VE

DONE TO GET READY FOR THE

FUTURE.

Reporter: IN 1994,

MIKE NORD LAND ANLAND AND HIS WIFE

PURCHASED CASCADE

ELECTRONICS IN PORTLAND,

OREGON.

I WAS IN ELECTRONICS,

AND THE OWNER WANTED TO

SELL THE BUSINESS.

WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE

GREAT FINANCIALLY FOR OUR

FAMILY.

Reporter: HOWEVER, IN

2001, MIKE AND LESLIE SAW

A DOWNTURN IN BUSINESS.

WE REALIZED BUSINESS

SLOWED DOWN A LOT.

AND PEOPLE WERE HOLDING

THEIR MONEY BACK.

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN IT

GOT PRETTY BAD.

WE LAID OFF MOST OF THE

EMPLOYEES, AND I STARTED

DOING MOST OF THE WORK

MYSELF.

IT IS CHALLENGING BECAUSE

THERE WERE TIMES WE

REALIZED MAYBE WE DIDN'T

PAY OURSELVES THAT MONTH.

Reporter: WITH THEIR

COMPANY IN THE RED, LESLIE

BEGAN TO PRAY ABOUT THEIR

GIVING.

THEIR COMPANY HAD ALWAYS

TITHED 10% OF THEIR

PERSONAL INCOME, BUT

LESLIE ALSO WANTED TO

TITHE OFF THEIR BUSINESS.

MIKE WAS RELUCTANT.

WE WERE ON TRACK WITH

OUR PERSONAL STUFF, BUT

THE BUSINESS WAS

DIFFICULT.

I WAS, LIKE, LORD, IF YOU

WANT THIS TO WORK, YOU'RE

GOING TO HAVE TO SPEAK TO

MY HUSBAND.

SHE SAID, THERE IS SO

MUCH MORE FOR US.

I RELEASED HER AND SAID,

ALL RIGHT, WHEREVER YOU

THINK IS IMPORTANT.

Reporter: MIKE AND

LESLIE DECIDED TO GIVE 10%

OF THEIR INCOME TO OTHER

INDUSTRIES.

IN 2010 THEY BECAME "THE

700 CLUB" PARTNERS.

WHEN WE STARTED GIVING

TO "THE 700 CLUB," THERE

WAS A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE.

I DON'T KNOW HOW IT

HAPPENED, BUT THERE IS

ALWAYS ENOUGH.

AND WE EVEN HAVE A

SAVINGS.

WE NEVER HAD A SAVINGS IN

ALL OF THE YEARS WE

ACTUALLY HAD THE BUSINESS.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

BUSINESSES IN THE PORTLAND

AREA THAT WE NO KNOW OF THAT

HAVE GONE OUT OF BUSINESS.

AND WE'RE STILL IN

BUSINESS.

WE HEAR THAT ALL OF THE

TIME: HOW ARE YOU IN

BUSINESS?

I SAY, WE HAVE THE FAVOR

OF THE LORD.

HAD WE HELD ON TO OUR

MONEY AND NOT TITHED, WHO

KNOWS WHERE WE WOULD BO.

BE.

Reporter: AND THEY

NOW GIVE FIVE TIMES THAT

AMOUNT TO CBN.

IF YOU TRUST GOD, THE

SKY IS THE LIMIT.

STAND IN FAITH ON IT,

PRAY ABOUT IT, GIVE, AND

START WATCHING WHAT GOD

DOES.

Gordon: START

WATCHING WHAT GOD DOES.

HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM

MATTHEW 25: "TO THOSE WHO

USE WELL WHAT THEY'RE

GIVEN, EVEN MORE WILL BE

GIVEN.

AND THEY WILL HAVE AN

ABUNDANCE.

BUT FROM THOSE WHO DO

NOTHING, EVEN WHAT LITTLE

THEY HAVE WILL BE TAKEN

AWAY."

AND LESLIE AND MIKE

LEARNED ALL OF THAT.

THEY PUT IT INTO PRACTICE,

AND YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENED.

IF YOU DO THE SAME THING,

THE SAME THING WILL HAPPEN

TO YOU.

> AS THE PASTOR OF A

SMALL CHURCH, TONY MOORE

MADE JUST $200 A WEEK.

SO HE TOOK A SECOND JOB TO

HELP PAY THE BILLS.

20 YEARS LATER, TONY STILL

HAS THAT SIDE JOB, AND HE

HAS TURNED IT INTO A

MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR

BUSINESS.

Reporter: FOR MORE

THAN 20 YEARS, WATERMELONS

HAVE BEEN THE SOURCE OF

SUCCESS FOR TONY AND CATHY

MOORE.

THEY RUN A SUCCESSFUL

WHOLESALE BUSINESS

TOGETHER.

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

WITH ABOUT 35 MEMBERS.

WHILE MY FIRST SALARY

WAS $200.

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 JUST DID THE BEST WE

COULD.

I'VE ALWAYS TRIED TO BE A

FRUGAL SHOPPER AND THRIFTY

AND USE COUPONS TO STRETCH

THE BUDGET.

I CAN'T EXPLAIN TO YOU

THAT THE BILLS WERE HERE

AND THE INCOME HERE, BUT

AT THE END OF THE MONTH,

IT SEEMED 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

PICKUP, OTHER FARMERS TOOK

NOTICE AND ASKED HIM TO

SELL THEIR MELONS, TOO.

AS THEIR BUSINESS GREW,

THEY KEPT UP WITH THEIR

TITHES.

FOOD LINE WAS OR FIRST

CORPORATE COMPANY.

WHEN WE PRAYED FOR GOD TO

BLESS US AND 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.

I REMEMBER THAT FIRST

YEAR I SOLD 10

TRACTOR-TRAILER LOADS, AND

I THOUGHT I HAD REALLY

DONE SOMETHING.

AND NOW DURING THE

BUSINESS TIME OF OUR YEAR,

WE COULD DO 20 TO 25

TRAILER TRUCKLOADS A DAY.

I REMEMBER SITTING DOWN

ONE YEAR TO DO TAXES, AND

MY INCOME TOPPED THE YEAR

BEFORE.

Reporter: ON TOP OF

THEIR TITHES, THE MOORES

GIVE TO A NUMBER OF

MINISTRIES, INCLUDING CBN.

CBN HAS REALLY MEANT A

LOT TO US OVER THE YEARS.

AS WE'VE WATCHED THE

PROGRAM AND SEEN HOW GOD

HAS BLESSED PEOPLE THROUGH

THE PROGRAM ITSELF, PLUS

"OPERATION BLESSING," PLUS

CBN NEWS BECAUSE I GET TO

HEAR NEWS FROM A CHRISTIAN

PERSPECTIVE.

Reporter: TODAY TONY

PASTORS A CONSIDERABLY

LARGER CHURCH, AND MOORES'

PRODUCE TRUCKS HUNDREDS OF

WATERMELONS EVERY SUMMER.

THE 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

TITHE THERS.

TITHERS.

WE TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO

TITHE.

WE FOUND YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE

GOD.

IT IS ALL ABOUT HIM.

WHEN WE HONOR HIM, HE

INDEED HONORS US.

Gordon: TONY AND

CATHY HAVE IT RIGHT.

WHEN WE HONOR HIM, HE

INDEED HONORS US.

"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 GOD

LOVES THE PERSON WHO GIVES

CHEERFULLY.

AND GOD WILL GENEROUSLY

PROVIDE ALL YOU NEED.

AND THEN YOU WILL ALWAYS

HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED

AND PLENTY TO SHARE WITH

OTHERS."

SOME CBN PARTNERS, JUST

LIKE TONY AND CATHY, SAY,

WE LOVE GIVING SO MUCH,

THEY WANT TO CHALLENGE

OTHERS TO GIVE.

SO UNTIL THE END. END OF THE

HOUR, THEY'LL MATCH YOUR

GIVING, DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR,

UP TO $100,000.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

FOR THIS.

AND WE ASK FOR BLESSING

FOR THE PARTNERS FROM OHIO

WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE TO

ISSUE THIS CHALLENGE.

BLESS THEM EXCEEDINGLY,

ABUNDANTLY.

GUIDE AND PROTECT THEM,

LORD GOD.

FOR THOSE WATCHING, LET

YOUR PEACE BE ALL AROUND

THEM AND IN THEM.

FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

$100,000 IS THE CHALLENGE

AMOUNT.

44 MINUTES AND 24 SECONDS

IS THE CLOCK.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

$20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY.

SOME OF YOU CAN JOIN AT

HIGHER LEVEL.

WE HAVE "700 CLUB" GOLD AT

$40.

AND THERE IS THE THOUSAND

CLUB, WHICH IS $1,000 A

YEAR, WHICH BREAKS OUT TO

$84 A MONTH.

AT WHATEVER LEVEL, CALL US

NOW: 1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN YOU

BECOME A CBN PARTNER, OUR

WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU IS

BY SENDING YOU THIS D.V.D.

IT IS PAT ROBERTSON'S

LATEST TEACHING ON HEAVEN.

IT FEATURES REAL PEOPLE

WHO HAD REAL ENCOUNTERS

WITH THE AFTER-LIFE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Terry: WHAT DOES

HAPPEN TO US AFTER WE DIE?

AND WHAT DOES THE BIBLE

HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT?

WELL, IT'S ALL IN HEAR,

"HEAVEN, WHAT GOD HAS

PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO

LOVE HIM."

WE WANT TO YOU HAVE THIS,

IT IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU JOIN "700 CLUB."

CALL RIGHT NOW.

WE HAVE THE $100,000

CHALLENGE THAT HAS JUST

BEEN LAUNCHED, AND THAT

MEANS WHEN YOU GIVE, EVERY

DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL BE

MATCHED DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

GORDON?

Gordon: WHEN CYNTHIA

LOST HER JOB, SHE WAS OUT

OF WORK FOR SEVEN MONTHS.

ALL OF THAT TIME SHE NEVER

MISSED A CAR PAYMENT OR A

MORTGAGE PAYMENT, AND HERE

IS HOW SHE DID IT.

I WASN'T IN CONTROL OF

MY MONEY.

MY MONEY WAS IN CONTROL OF

ME.

I WOULD SEE SOMETHING, AND

I WOULD GO GET IT.

I WORKED HARD FOR IT AND

THE VOICES TELL YOU TO GO

GET IT.

Reporter: THAT'S THE

MINDSET CYNTHIA ADOPTE ADOPTED AS

A YOUNG CAREER WOMAN.

I WENT ON SPENDING

SPREES BECAUSE I HAD MONEY

TO DO SO.

Reporter: OWE EVENTUALLY

MOST OF HER MONEY WENT TO

PAYING BILLS AND

CREDITORS.

I REMEMBER I WOULD HAVE

TO WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN,

EVERY PENNY I WAS GOING TO

SPEND.

Reporter: SHE STARTED

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I STARTED HEARING THESE

PRINCIPLES THAT WERE VERY

FOREIGN TO ME, ABOUT, YOU

KNOW, GIVE AND IT SHALL BE

GIVEN UNTO YOU.

Reporter: CYNTHIA

DECIDED TO BECOME A CBN

PARTNER.

I REMEMBER WRITING THAT

FIRST CHECK.

IT WAS -- I THOUGHT ANGELS

WERE GOING TO BE SINGING

BECAUSE IT WAS SUCH A HUGE

STEP FOR ME.

Reporter: CYNTHIA

STILL DIDN'T HAVE A HANDLE

ON SPENDING, THOUGH, AND

HER DEBT GREW TO $30,000.

AS LONG AS YOU CAN PAY

THAT MONTHLY PAYMENT, LIFE

IS GOOD.

AND IT WASN'T GOOD.

THAT WASN'T THE WAY TO

LIVE.

Reporter: THEN SHE

LOST HER JOB.

CYNTHIA SAYS SHE HAD TO

DEPEND SOLELY ON GOD,

WHICH WASN'T EASY.

IT WAS VERY STRESSFUL

FOR ME.

I REMEMBER ONE TIME PACING

BACK AND FORTH.

I SAID, GOT, I NEE GOD, I NEED YOUR

HELP.

MY MORTGAGE PAYMENT WAS

DRAFTING THE NEXT DAY AND

I HAD $1 IN MY BANK

ACCOUNT.

Reporter: SHE

RECEIVED AN OFFER AT 27%.

SHE ADMITS SHE WAS

TEMPTED.

I THOUGHT, THIS IS A

QUICK ANSWER TO MY

PROBLEM, AND GOD SAID, IT

MAY BE A QUICK ANSWER, BUT

IT IS NOT YOUR PAYMENT.

I WROTE VOID ON THAT

CHECK.

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW THAT

MORTGAGE CHECK DRAFTED THE

NEXT DAY.

Reporter: SHE

BELIEVES GOD TOLD HER TO

KEEP GIVING.

DURING SEVEN MONTHS OF

UNEMPLOYMENT, I NEVER

MISSED A HOUSE PAYMENT.

I NEVER MISSED A CAR

PAYMENT.

GOD WAS FAITHFUL.

Reporter: CYNTHIA

LANDED A JOB AND SAYS GOD

STARTED SHOWING HER WAYS

TO PAY OFF HER DEBT.

ONE OF THEM WAS TO GIVE

MORE.

HE ASKED ME TO DOUBLE

MY GIVING TO CBN.

I SAID, DOUBLE MY GIFT?

$20 WAS A STRETCH.

NOW $40 WAS -- WOW!

Reporter: CYNTHIA

INCREASED HER GIVING.

IN TIME SHE PAID OFF ALL

OF HER DEBT AND IS STILL

DEBT-FREE.

AND SHE IS ALSO A MEMBER

OF CBN'S CHAIRMAN'S

CIRCLE.

SHE SAYS HE HAS AN

UNDERSTANDING OF GIVING

AND FAITH SHE NEVER HAD

BEFORE.

MY PHILOSOPHY OF GIVING

WAS GOD GETS 10% AND 90%

WAS MINE.

MY PHILOSOPHY NOW IS, IT'S

ALL HIS.

HE GAVE IT TO ME ANYWAY.

WHEN I GIVE IT TO GOD, HE

IS GOING TO DO SO MUCH

MORE WITH IT THAN I COULD

EVER IMAGINE.

AND THEN HE BLESSES ME

BACK ALONG THE WAY.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PRINCIPLE FROM PROVERBS:

"GIVE FREELY AND BECOME

MORE WEALTHY.

BE STINGY AND LOSE

EVERYTHING.

THE GENEROUS WILL PROSPER

THOSE, AND THEY THEMSELVES

WILL BE REFRESHED."

HERE IS CYNTHIA, SHE IS

WRITING THAT FIRST CHECK,

AND SHE IS EXPECTING

ANGELS.

BUT WHAT WAS GOING ON IS,

SHE SAYS, I'M GOING TO

FOLLOW THAT PRINCIPLE.

I'M GOING TO GIVE AND SEE

WHAT GOD WILL DO.

THE SAME THING THAT

HAPPENED TO HER CAN HAPPEN

TO YOU IF YOU JUST FOLLOW

THE SAME PRINCIPLE.

OVER AND OVER AGAIN IN THE

BIBLE YOU SEE GOD SAYING,

GIVE, BE GENEROUS, TITHE,

GIVE OFFERINGS.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, THAT'S

WHEN WONDERFUL BLESSINGS

START TO FLOW INTO YOUR

LIFE.

IF YOU WANT TO START THAT,

GIVE US A CALL:

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

BE A MEMBER OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S JUST $20 A MONTH, 65

CENTS A DAY, AND YOU JOIN

WITH TENSE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE WHO WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.

IF THAT'S YOU, JOIN US

NOW: 1-800-759-0700.

> WELL, JOE AND REBECCA

WERE LIVING PAYCHECK TO

PAYCHECK AND FIGHTING ALL

OF THE TIME.

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

SHEAR HAD ALWAYS MADE

GOING TO CHURCH A

PROPRIETY.

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.

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.

THAT WAS THE BIGGEST

THING.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

FOUGHT OFTEN, NOT KNOWING

HOW TO GET OUT OF THEIR

FINANCIAL WHOLE.

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.

THAT'S WHEN WE WOULD ARGUE

AND 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 IN THE WAY

YOU RAISE YOUR FAMILY, AND

HOW 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.

WITHIN 30 DAYS AFTER WE

STARTED DOING THE 10%, I

GOT A PHONE CALL FROM OUR

OWNER, SAYING HEY, WE WANT

YOU TO BE THE DIRECTOR OF

SALES IN OUR SOUTHERN

CALIFORNIA 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.

AND 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.

HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM

MALACHI: "BRING ALL OF THE

TITHES INTO THE

STOREHOUSE, THAT 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."

JOE AND REBECCA LIVED BY

THAT PRINCIPLE, AND YOU

SAW THE RESULT.

IF YOU LIVE BY THE SAME

PRINCIPLE, YOU'LL SEE THE

SAME RESULT.

IF YOU WANT TO START DOING

THAT, CALL US NOW:

1-800-759-0700.

WE'RE IN A $100,000

CHALLENGE.

IF WE CAN GET THE RED

NUMBER UP, WE'VE GOT

$73,000 -- IT'S GOING

DOWN.

THAT RED NUMBER REPRESENTS

THE NUMBER THAT WILL BE

MATCHED.

IT WILL BE MATCHED DOLLAR

FOR DOLLAR UP TO THAT

$73,000.

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS,

GORDON.

LOVED ONES WHEN I GET

THERE.

THERE?

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, HOW

CAN I BE SURE I'LL SPEND

ETERNITY IN HEAVEN?

> EVERY DOING THAT YOU

MATCHED DOLLAR TO FOR DOLLAR,

SO THIS IS A GREAT TIME TO

GO TO YOUR PHONES.

Terry: CBN PARTNERS

ARE BLESSING PEOPLE ALL

AROUND THE WORLD.

IN CHINA, THEY HELPED A

HARD-WORKING YOUNG MOM WHO

COULDN'T AFFORD SURGERY

FOR HER SON.

MRS. JOW FELT A CONNECTION

WITH HER BABY THE MOMENT

SHE FELT MOVEMENT IN HER

WOMB.

I PATTED MY BELLY AND

KNEW HE WAS GOING TO BE A

BOY.

Terry: BUT SHE NEVER

GUESSED HER FOURTH CHILD

WOULD BE BORN WITH A CLEFT

LIP AND STILL STRUGGLING

TWO YEARS LATER.

HE COULD NOT EAT MUCH,

SO HE WAS WEAKER THAN MOST

CHILDREN HIS AGE.

Terry: MRS. JOW

ALREADY WORKED LONG HOURS

TO PROVIDE FOR HER FAMILY,

BUT SHE STARTED WORKING

EVEN MORE TO SAVE UP FOR

SURGERY FOR HER SON.

SHE KNEW WITHOUT IT, HER

SON WOULD SOON BE MUTE.

NEIGHBORS STARTED MAKING

FUN OF HIM ALREADY.

THEY MOCKED HIM AND

SAID, LOOK AT HIS MOUTH.

HE IS SO UGLY.

IT HURT ME SO MUCH.

IT MADE ME REALLY

UPSET, SO I TRIED TO

PROTECT MY BROTHER AND

MAKE PEOPLE STOP LAUGHING

AT HIM.

I LOVE HIM SO MUCH.

Terry: MEANWHILE,

IGOW'S CLEFT LIP GOT

BIGGER AND WORSE.

HE NEVER CLOSED HIS

MOUTH, SO HE CAUGHT MANY

COLDS AND HAD HIGH FEVERS.

Terry: WHEN CBN HEARD

ABOUT IGOW, WE CONTACTED

MRS. JOW RIGHT AWAY AND

TOLD HER WE WOULD COVER

THE COSTS FOR HIS CLEFT

LIP SURGERY. EVERYONE WAS

AMAZED AS THE

TRANSFORMATION.

IGOW LIKES TO SMILE NOW

AND LOOK IN THE MIRROR.

AND WHEN PEOPLE ASK IF HIS

LIP IS CRACKED ANYMORE, HE

SAYS NOT ANYMORE.

I'M DEEPLY MOVED BY YOUR

HELP.

YOUR LOVE HAS CHANGED OUR

LIVES.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR

FIXING MY BROTHER'S MOUTH.

I'VE NEVER BEEN HAPPIER

THAN NOW.

Terry: THESE

SURGERIES MAKE SUCH A

DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF

THE CHILDREN THAT ARE

BLESSED TO RECEIVE THEM

BECAUSE OF YOUR

GENEROSITY.

WITHOUT THAT, THEY WOULD

NOT BE ABLE TO EAT WELL,

WOULD BE MALNOURISHED,

WOULD NEVER SPEAK WELL,

THE MIDDLE OF A CHALLENGE.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE A

GENERAL "700 CLUB" MEMBER,

WHAT WEDNESDAY WAS TALKING WENDY WAS TALKING

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

GORDON?

Gordon: AS A SAILOR

IN THE NAVY, MATT HAS TO

LEAVE HIS WIFE AND

CHILDREN FOR LONG PERIODS

OF TIME.

SO WE'RE DOING EVERYTHING

WE CAN TO GIVE THEM MORE

TIME TOGETHER AND TO MAKE

THEIR TIME APART A LITTLE

EASIER.

Reporter: MATT AND

HIS WIFE, BRIE, DON'T TAKE

FAMILY TIME FOR GRANTED.

THEY CHERISH EVERY MINUTE

TOGETHER WITH THEIR

CHILDREN, HARPER AND

CONNOR.

MATT KNOWS HE COULDN'T DO

HIS JOB WITHOUT BRIE'S

SUPPORT.

WITHOUT HER, IT IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

SHE IS THE FOUNDATION OF

IT ALL.

THAT'S VERY SWEET.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

FACES ITS BIGGEST

CHALLENGE YET.

THEY LEARNED MATT WILL

LEAVE AGAIN FOR A YEAR.

BRIE IS STANDING ON HER

FAITH IN GOD TO HELP HER

COPE.

I JUST GOT MY HUSBAND

BACK FROM A SIX MONTH

DEPLOYMENT, AND TWO MONTHS

LATER THEY TOLD ME THEY

ARE TAKING HIM FOR A YEAR.

I COULDN'T SURVIVE IF I

DIDN'T HAVE THE

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

JUST KNOWING THAT HE IS IN

CONTROL AND HE HAS A PLAN,

AND THAT HE IS GOING TO BE

THERE TO GET ME THROUGH

IT.

> Reporter: THE COUPLE

DECIDED IT WAS BEST FOR

BRIE AND THE KIDS TO MOVE

BACK HOME TO TEXAS TO BE

NEAR FAMILY.

BUT THE NAVY DOESN'T PAY

FOR A VOLUNTARY MOVE.

SO THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO

INTO DEBT TO DO IT.

TO THEM, IT WAS WORTH IT.

IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT

TO BOTH OF US SHE WAS WITH

FAMILY AND CLOSE TO PEOPLE

THAT SHE COULD RELY ON,

AND WHO ULTIMATELY WOULD

BE THERE FOR HER AND OUR

KIDS.

Reporter: MATT WOULD

BE ELIGIBLE TO COME HOME

ONCE ON LEAVE, BUT THEY

WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR HIS

TRAVEL EXPENSES.

MONEY THEY DON'T HAVE.

MATPASTOR WYNN LETO STOPPED

BY WITH GOOD NEWS.

WE'RE GOING TO BE ABLE

TO HELP YOU WITH SOME OF

THE THINGS YOU NEED MOVING

TO TEXAS.

I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW

THAT CBN IS GOING TO PAY

FOR ALL OF THAT.

THAT'S AMAZING.

Reporter: AND PASTOR

WYNN TOLD THEM CBN WOULD

PAY FOR TRAVEL WHEN IT

CAME TIME FOR MATT'S

LEAVE.

CBN WOULD LIKE TO PAY

FOR MATT TO COME HOME, PAY

FOR HIS ROUNDTRIP, HIS

RETURN FROM BAHRAIN.

THAT'S AWESOME.

THAT'S A HUGE BLESSING.

I'M VERY THANKFUL, VERY

THANKFUL.

THAT'S AMAZING.

Reporter: SEVEN

MONTHS AFTER THE MOVE TO

TEXAS, OUR CBN CAMERAS

WERE THERE WHEN MATT CAME

HOME ON LEAVE.

DADDY!

Reporter: THIS FAMILY

HAD THREE WEEKS TOGETHER

THANKS TO CBN.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

HELPING MY FAMILY AND

BLESSING US, AND SHOWING

LET'S GO OVER TO WENDY AT

THE PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS,

GORDON.

CONQUERED ONCE AND FOR

ALL?

HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS:

THIS PLACE IS REAL AND

THESE PEOPLE HAVE SEEN IT.

Wendy: HEAVEN IS

GOING TO BE SO AMAZING, NO

WORDS CAN ADEQUATELY

DESCRIBE HOW INCREDIBLE IT

IS GOING TO BE.

MAYBE YOU'RE GOING TO GO

THERE, BUT YOU'RE SAYING,

I'M NOT WORTHY.

THERE IS NO WAY I COULD

GET IN.

HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS:

YES, YOU CAN.

JESUS ALREADY PAID THE

PRICE FOR YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS JUST

REPENT, JUST ASK GOD TO

FORGIVE YOU OF YOUR SINS

AND ASK HIM TO BE YOUR

LORD AND SAVIOR, AND THE

BIBLE PROMISES THAT YOU'RE

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY IS ALL

IT TAKES TO BECOME A CBN

WE'VE GOT OUR GOLD LEVEL,

21 MINUTES LEFT ON THE

CLOCK AND 41 SECONDS.

THAT MEANS EVERY DOLLAR

YOU PLEDGE RIGHT NOW WILL

BE MATCHED DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR.

GORDON?

Gordon: RUSS AND

CAROL WERE MAKING MINIMUM

WAGE, AND YET THEY STILL

HAD MONEY OVER AT THE END

OF THE WEEK.

THEY SAY IT IS BECAUSE OF

A PROMISE THEY MADE MANY

YEARS AGO, AND ONE THEY'RE

STILL KEEPING TO THIS DAY.

Reporter: RUSS AND

CAROL HAVE BEEN MARRIED

FOR OVER 50 YEARS.

THEAND THEY HAVE A REAL

PASSION FOR GIVING.

THEY BECAME CBN PARTNERS

IN THE '70s, AND THEY'VE

BEEN GIVING EVER SINCE.

THE MINISTRY CLOSE TO

MY HEART IS "OPERATION

BLESSING."

IT HAS A WORLDWIDE EFFECT.

THEY'RE OUT THERE

BRINGING HOPE TO PEOPLE

WHO MAYBE NEVER HEARD OF

THE GOSPEL.

AND WHEN THEY BRING OUT

PEOPLE WHO BRING FRESH

WATER TO OTHERS, THAT IS

SUCH A HOPE FOR THEM TO

TURN TO THE LORD AND BEGIN

TO TRUST HIM.

Reporter: RUSS AND

CAROL UNDERSTAND THAT

GIVING IS ONE OF GOD'S

FINANCIAL PRINCIPLES.

AS OWNERS OF A RECRUITING

AGENCY SINCE 1980, THEY'VE

USED THAT PRINCIPLE TO

WEATHER MANY FINANCIAL

STORMS, INCLUDING THREE

MAJOR RECESSIONS, BUT THEY

STAYED IN BUSINESS AND

DIDN'T HAVE TO LAY ANYONE

OFF.

IT IS BECAUSE WE STAYED

OBEDIENT TO THE LORD

THROUGH THOSE TIMES AND

CONTINUED GIVING THAT THE

LORD BLESSED US.

Reporter: TODAY RUSS

AND CAROL ARE ENJOYING

RETIREMENT.

OVER THE YEARS, ONE THING

HASN'T CHANGED.

THEIR PASSION TO GIVE AND

THEIR PARTNERSHIP WITH

CBN.

CBN IS SO WONDERFUL.

IT IS NOT ONLY THE WORDS

YOU MAY GET OUT OF IT FROM

GOD, IT IS THE FEELING YOU

HAVE OF HELPING.

I'VE BEEN CONSISTENT IN

GIVING TO CBN BECAUSE IT

HAS BEEN A MINISTRY THAT

HAS NOT ONLY SOWED INTO MY

OWN HEART, BUT I'VE SEEN

CBN DO THAT INTO OTHER

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

Gordon: BE A PART OF

IT.

BE A PART OF EVERYTHING

WE'RE DOING AROUND THE

WORLD.

CALL US AND JOIN:

1-800-759-0700 I'VE GOT

SOME GREAT NEWS.

WE'VE GOT SOME PARTNERS

FROM ILLINOIS, MICHIGAN,

AND WISCONSIN, ALL JOINING

TOGETHER, AND THEY WANT TO

ADD $90,436.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING.

WE ASK FOR BLESSING FOR

THE PARTNERS WHO MAKE IT

POSSIBLE.

AND WE ASK FOR BLESSING

FOR THOSE WHO ARE WATCHING

RIGHT NOW.

BE WITH THEM, GUARD THEM,

PROTECT THEM, FOR WE ASK

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Gordon: YOU HEARD IT,

$190,000 IS THE CHALLENGE

AMOUNT.

19 MINUTES AND 2 SECONDS

IS THE CLOCK.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

SO CALL US:

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: AT A TIME WHEN

THEY SHOULD BE SLOWING

DOWN, SNOW'S GRANDPARENTS

HAD TO WORK HARDER THAN

EVER.

THEY HAD TWICE AS MANY

MOUTHS TO FEED AND NO WAY

TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE.

GRANDMA DANG AND GRANDPA

SUNG DIDN'T THINK TWICE

ABOUT TAKING THEIR

GRANDKIDS.

THE CHILDREN HAD BEEN

ABANDONED BY THEIR

DRUG-ADDICTED MOTHER.

THEY WERE ABLE TO PROVIDE

FOR THEM UNTIL THEY BOTH

LOST THEIR JOBS.

WHEN WE LOST OUR JOBS,

WE HAD NOTHING TO EAT.

I WENT FROM FARM TO FARM,

HAULING SACKS OF RICE AND

FEED.

SOMETIMES MY WIFE HELPS ME

TO COLLECT BAMBOO LEAVES

IN THE JUNGLE TO SELL.

WHEN I SEE MY

GRANDPARENTS WORKING SO

HARD, I FEEL SORRY FOR

THEM.

I KNOW THEY WANT ME AND

OPE TO HAVE A BETTER LIFE.

Terry: THEN THE

COUPLE'S MOTORCYCLE BROKE

DOWN, AND EVEN THE SMALL

AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY EARN

DRIED UP.

SO CBN STEPPED IN AND

REPAIRED THEIR MOTORCYCLE.

THEN WE GAVE THEM A COW

AND A CALF TO START A

LIVESTOCK BUSINESS.

THEY'RE EXPECTING ANOTHER

CALF ANY DAY.

MY LIFE WAS FALLING

APART, BUT WHEN "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" SAW OUR NEEDS,

THEY VALUED US AND

SUPPORTED US.

WHAT THEY HAVE DONE FOR US

GOES BEYOND WORDS.

Terry: THE WHOLE

FAMILY WAS SO ENCOURAGED,

THEY PRAYED TO BECOME

CHRISTIANS.

I AM S AM SO EXCITED TO KNOW

JESUS AS MY SAVIOR AND TO

WORSHIP HIM.

I NEVER MISS CHURCH AND

BIBLE STUDY.

NOW I KNOW THAT GOD

CARES FOR US.

THANK YOU, "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," FOR HELPING MY

FAMILY.

Terry: GOD CARED FOR

THIS LITTLE FAMILY THROUGH

YOU, "700 CLUB" PARTNERS.

YOU SEE, SOMETIMES FOR A

FAMILY TO STAY TOGETHER,

FOR CHILDREN NOT TO BE

TAKEN OUT OF THEIR HOMES

AND PUT IN ORPHANAGES, ALL

PEOPLE NEED IS A LITTLE

BIT OF A HAND-UP.

NOT A HAND OUT, BUT A

HAND-UP.

SO THEY CAN BECOME

SELF-SUFFICIENT SO THEY

CAN SUPPORT THEIR

FAMILIES.

AND WE'RE DOING THAT IN

THE LIVES OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO GO TO

YOUR PHONE RIGHT NOW AND

BE A PART OF ALL OF THAT,

WHEN YOU DO JOIN TODAY AT

WHATEVER GOD PEEKS TO YOU SPEAKS TO YOU

ABOUT, WOULD YOU DO IT

USING PLEDGE EXPRESS.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE

ENVELOPES OR STAMPS OR

REMEMBER TO MAIL ANYTHING.

IT IS ALL DONE FOR YOU.

YOU CAN STOP IT WHEN YOU

LIKE.

BUT IT SAVES US SOME

ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS, SO

WE CAN PUT MORE OF OUR

GIFTS INTO THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE LIKE SNOW AND HER

FAMILY.

WHEN YOU CALL, SAY YOU'D

LIKE TO USE PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK

YOU FOR USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS IS TO SEND YOU

"POWER FOR LIFE".

THESE ARE TEACHINGS WE

RECEIVE ON A REGULAR BASIS

HERE AT CBN, AND WE'LL

SHARE THEM WITH YOU

MONTHLY.

WE THINK THEY'LL BE A

GREAT BLESSING TO YOU.

SO THANK YOU.

GORDON?

Gordon: CHRISTIANITY

IS ON THE RISE IN CHINA,

AND PEOPLE LIKE TUNG TIANG

ARE BIG REASONS WHY.

SHE IS BOLDLY TELLING

OTHERS ABOUT THE GOSPEL,

THANKS TO A LITTLE HELP

FROM "SUPERBOOK."

Terry: SHE IS A

CHRISTIAN AT A SCHOOL IN

CHINA, WHERE MOST STUDENTS

ARE ATHEISTS AND MUSLIMS.

WE ARE TAUGHT THERE

REALLY IS NO GOD, BUT THAT

HAS NEVER STOPPED ME FROM

BELIEVING IN THE GOD OF

THE UNIVERSE AND HOW HE

FORGAVE OUR SINS BY HIS

OWN BLOOD.

Terry: SHE

DESPERATELY WANTS HER

CLASSMATES TO KNOW GOD,

TOO.

I WANT MY CLASSMATES TO

BE BLESSED AND SAVED, LIKE

I AM.

BUT SOMETIMES WHEN I

SHARE, THEY TELL ME I'M IN

A CULT AND THAT I AM

LYING.

ONE TIME A BOY MOCKED MY

FAITH, AND I CRIED.

Terry: FOR A MONTH

TIANG STOPPED GOING TO

CHURCH AND WAS AFRAID TO

SHARE THE GOSPEL.

THEN SHE HAD A TALK WITH

HER DAD AND REMEMBERED AN

EPISODE OF "SUPERBOOK" SHE

HAD SEEN THAT WAS

TRANSLATED INTO MANDARIN

FOR THE CHILDREN OF CHINA.

"SUPERBOOK" TAUGHT ME

LOTS OF PRINCIPLES ABOUT

LIFE.

AND THAT MADE ME WANT TO

DO THINGS GOD'S WAY AND

PLEASE HIM.

PLUS I FOUND OUT THAT

CHRIS AND JOY ARE JUST

LIKE ME.

Terry: TIANG LEARNED

SHE HAD TO LOVE HER

ENEMIES, SO SHE STARTED

PRAYING FOR THE STUDENTS

WHO HURT HER FEELINGS.

AND WHEN SHE FOUND OUT

THERE WAS GOING TO BE A

"SUPERBOOK" PARTY AT

CHURCH, SHE INVITED HER

CLASSMATES.

THEY ALL CAME AND FOUND

IT VERY INTERESTING.

Terry: AFTER

"SUPERBOOK" WAS SHOWN, HER

SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER

ASKED IF THERE WAS ANYONE

WHO WANTED TO KNOW MORE

ABOUT JESUS.

AND SOME OF HER CLASSMATES

HAD STOOD UP.

I HAD NEVER BEEN TO

CHURCH BEFORE, SO THIS WAS

THE FIRST TIME I HEARD

ABOUT JESUS.

I LEARNED ABOUT HOW JESUS

COULD CHANGE MY LIFE.

NOW I WANT TO WATCH

MORE "SUPERBOOK."

HAVING MY CLASSMATES

MEET JESUS IS LIKE SAVING

THEIR LIVES.

IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY.

MY WISH IS THAT MORE AND

MORE CHILDREN IN CHINA

WILL WATCH IT AND KNOW THE

LORD JESUS, AND THAT

EVERYONE AROUND THE WORLD

WILL ACCEPT GOD.

Gordon: JOIN WITH US.

DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

YOUR PHONES RIGHT NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: LITTLE RAUL

HAS A BRIGHT FUTURE IN

FRONT OF HIM, BUT NOT LONG

AGO HE WAS GOING BLIND AND

HIS PARENTS COULDN'T DO

ANYTHING TO STOP IT.

Reporter: RAUL'S

PARENTS WERE CONCERNED

WHEN THEY NOTICED HE HAD

PROBLEMS WITH HIS RIGHT

EYE.

WE SAW A WHITE COLOR

PATCH IN HIS EYE WHEN HE

WAS A BABY.

WHEN HE GOT OLDER, THE

WHITE PATCH GREW BIGGER.

HE WAS ALWAYS COVER HIS

EYE BECAUSE IT HURT HIM SO

MUCH.

SUNLIGHT IRRITATED IT AND

MADE IT DIFFICULT FOR HIM

TO WALK OUTSIDE.

SO WE WERE SCARED THAT HE

WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO SEE

OUT OF THAT EYE.

Reporter: BUT THEN A

CBN MEDICAL CAMP VISITED

THEIR VILLAGE.

THEY TOLD US OUR SON

HAD A CATARACT, AND THEY

SAID THEY WOULD GIVE HIM A

FREE SURGERY.

Reporter: AT THE

HOSPITAL, THE DOCTOR

EXPLAINED THAT RAUL WAS

CLOSE TO LOSING VISION IN

HIS RIGHT EYE PERMANENTLY.

HE HAS A CATARACT.

AND THE SURGERY SHOULD BE

PERFORMED AS SOON AS

POSSIBLE.

Reporter: RAUL'S

FATHER WAS WORRIED ABOUT

THE OUTCOME OF THE

SURGERY, BUT HE KNEW IT

WAS THE BEST CHANCE TO

SAVE HIS SON'S SIGHT.

THE CATARACT WAS

REMOVED, AND A VERY GOOD

QUALITY LENS WAS PUT IN.

THIS IS THE LENS.

Reporter: THE NEXT

DAY THE BANDAGE WAS

REMOVED.

RAUL COULD SEE CLEARLY.

I'M EXTREMELY HAPPY

THAT MY BOY'S OPERATION

WENT WELL.

AND HIS EYE IS PERFECTLY

FINE.

NOW HE PLAYS A LOT

OUTSIDE WITHOUT ANY

DISCOMFORT.

AND HE REALLY LIKES TO

READ AND WRITE.

HE IS SO HAPPY.

IT IS SUCH A REMARKABLE

CHANGE.

I KNOW THAT WHEN HE

GROWS UP, HE WILL BE ABLE

TO STUDY WELL, GET A GOOD

JOB, AND HAVE A BRIGHT

FUTURE.

Terry: SUCH A

REMARKABLE CHANGE, HIS

MOTHER SAID.

I THINK YOU CAN SEE

CLEARLY IN THAT STORY,

THIS HAPPENED AT JUST THE

RIGHT TIME IN RAUL'S LIFE.

HE HAD NOT LOST HIS SIGHT

COMPLETELY.

HE IS READY TO GO TO

SCHOOL, AND NOW HE HAS THE

CAPACITY TO READ AND LEARN

WELL.

ALL OF THAT BECAUSE YOU

WERE GENEROUS AND

COMPASSIONATE ENOUGH TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN HIS

LIFE.

THAT'S WHAT "700 CLUB"

MEMBERS DO, THEY MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN PEOPLE'S

LIVES, MEETING THEM RIGHT

AT THEIR POINT OF NEED.

IT IS WHAT JESUS CALLS US

TO DO.

WE WANT TO INVITE YOU TO

BE A PART OF THAT.

TOLL-FREE NUMBER:

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," AND I'D

LIKE TO DO IT USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

IF YOU DO THAT, IT HELPS

US A LITTLE BIT AS WELL.

THERE YOU GO, ELECTRONIC

MONTHLY GIVING.

IT MEANS THE BANK DOES ALL

OF THE WORK FOR YOU, AND

SO EVEN MORE OF YOUR GIFTS

CAN BE PUT INTO THE LIVES

OF PEOPLE LIKE RAUL AND

HIS FAMILY.

SO CALL NOW.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

GORDON?

Gordon: AT ONE REMOTE

VILLAGE IN HONDURAS, WATER

IS SCARCE.

AND IT TASTES BAD AS WELL.

AND IT EVEN CAUSED ONE

CHILD TO COLLAPSE.

Reporter: WHEN

11-YEAR-OLD FERNANDO GOT

THIRSTY, THIS WAS THE ONLY

WATER HE HAD TO DRINK.

I DIDN'T LIKE IT

BECAUSE IT WAS

CONTAMINATED.

IT TASTED REALLY BAD.

Reporter: FERNANDO

AND HIS MOM CLIMB A

MOUNTAIN EVERY DAY TO

COLLECT WATER FROM THIS

STAGNANT POOL.

MARIAM USES A CLOTH TO

FILTER THE WATER, BUT

KNOWS IT IS NOT SAFE.

AS A RESULT, THE BACTERIA

IN THE POND HAVE BEEN

REPRODUCING IN FERNANDO'S

STOMACH.

ONE MORNING HE DEVELOPED

SUCH SEVERE CRAMPS, THAT

HE FAINTED.

IT WENT INTO MY

STOMACH.

IT FELT LIKE MY HEART WAS

IN THE BOTTOM OF MY CHEST

AND THEN EVERYTHING WENT

BLACK.

Reporter: SO

"OPERATION BLESSING" CAME

TO VISIT THE COMMUNITY AND

OFFERED TO HELP.

FIRST WE LOCATED A BETTER

WATER SOURCE ON TOP OF THE

MOUNTAIN.

THEN WE BUILT A TANK AND

WATER PURIFYER AND BROUGHT

THE WATER TO THE WHOLE

COMMUNITY.

IT IS SO AMAZING TO

HAVE WATER RIGHT HERE AT

MY HOUSE.

IT'S SO COOL AND CLEAN.

I'M NOT AFRAID TO DRINK IT

ANYMORE.

Reporter: AND WE ALSO

GAVE FERNANDO AND EVERYONE

ELSE IN THE COMMUNITY A

DOSE OF ANTI-PARASITE

MEDICINE, WHICH KEEPS THE

PARASITES AWAY FOR SIX

MONTHS.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR BRINGING

THE WATER TO OUR HOUSE.

Gordon: JUST IMAGINE

NOT HAVING ACCESS TO CLEAN

WATER, WHAT YOU AND I TAKE

FOR GRANTED EVERY SINGLE

MORNING.

YOU GO TO THE TAP AND TURN

IT ON, AND CLEAN DRINKING

WATER COMES OUT.

AND WHATEVER YOU NEED,

THERE IS AN ABUNDANCE OF

WATER.

THAT IS NOT THE CASE

AROUND THE WORLD.

AND JUST BEING A BLESSING

TO THEM, TO SAY, YES, WE

CARE ENOUGH TO GIVE AND

TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEEDS.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART

OF IT, CALL US RIGHT NOW:

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'VE GOT FIVE MINUTES AND

39 SECONDS LEFT, ON A

$190,000 CHALLENGE.

CALL US NOW:

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: ROSA AND HER

GRANDCHILDREN LIVED IN

FEAR AND THAT'S BECAUSE

THEY ALL LIVED IN A HOUSE

THAT WAS ABOUT TO

COLLAPSE.

Reporter: GRANDMA

ROSA KNEW HER HOUSE WAS IN

TROUBLE.

MY HOUSE WAS DANGEROUS.

ALL OF THE WOOD WAS

ROTTEN.

Reporter: A IS A

WIDOW, RAISING HER TWO

GRANDCHILDREN IN A

FLOATING HOUSE HERE ALONG

THE AMAZON RIVER AND PERU.

ONE NIGHT A BAD

THUNDERSTORM HIT, CAUSING

THE HOUSE TO COLLAPSE.

AFTER THAT, THEY KNEW THEY

WOULD HAVE TO MOVE.

I REMEMBER WE WERE

SLEEPING, AND THE HOUSE

STARTED TO TREMBLE.

I WAS SO SCARED.

AFTER THE STORM, THERE

WAS NO PLACE TO GO.

Reporter: WE FIRST

MET ROSA'S GRANDCHILDREN

AT A FREE "OPERATION

BLESSING" SHOE GIVE

ANYWHER-AWAYAT THEIR SCHOOL.

WHEN WE HEARD ABOUT THEIR

HOUSE, WITHIN A SHORT

TIME, WE BUILT THEM A NEW

ONE, WITH SOLID WALLS AND

A ROOF, AND DOUBLE

FLOATING LOGS THAT ALWAYS

KEEP THEM ABOVE WATER.

AND WE ALSO GAVE THEM

FURNITURE AND BEDS, THE

FIRST THEY HAD EVER HAD.

EVERY NIGHT I HAD ASKED

IN MY PRAYERS FOR A NEW

HOUSE.

NOW WE HAVE ONE.

Reporter: AND TO HELP

GRANDMA ROSA TO PROVIDE

FOR HER GRANDCHILDREN, WE

SET UP AND STOCKED A SMALL

GROCERY STORE, RIGHT IN

FRONT OF HER NEW HOUSE.

NOW SHE IS MAKING ENOUGH

MONEY TO BUY FOOD AND MEET

THEIR OTHER NEEDS.

I THANK YOU CBN AND

GOD.

I ASKED FOR A NEW HOUSE

AND MY OWN BUSINESS.

NOW I FEEL SO GRATEFUL TO

SEE GOD'S RESPONSE.

I AM HAPPY FOR MY

GRANDMA.

SHE GIVES US SO MUCH LOVE

AND HAPPINESS.

THANKS FOR A NEW HOUSE AND

STORE.

Terry: HERE IS A

GRANDMOTHER WHO IS LOVING

HER GRANDCHILDREN,

DILIGENTLY TAKING CARE OF

THEM, AND WONDERING HOW IN

THE WORLD THEY'RE GOING TO

MAKE IT WITH THEIR HOUSE

FALLING DOWN AND NO WAY TO

SUPPORT THEM.

YOU CAME RIGHT INTO THE

MIDDLE OF THAT NEED.

CAN I TELL YOU THAT HOUSE

IS THE NICEST ONE ALONG

THAT RIVER.

YOU JUST CAN'T BELIEVE

WHAT PEOPLE GO THROUGH.

BUT HERE IS A GRANDMOTHER

ALONE WITH GRANDCHILDREN,

AND YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE

IN THEIR LIVES, AND WE SAY

THANK YOU.

THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF

FAMILIES WAITING FOR HELP.

HELP US SAY YES TO THEM,

TOO, WON'T YOU?

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE:

1-800-759-0700.

WHEN YOU CALL NOW, EVERY

DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL BE

MATCHED DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

SO LET US HEAR FROM YOU.

GORDON?

Gordon: TONIGHT, ONE

IN SEVEN AMERICAN FAMILIES

WILL GO TO BED HUNGRY.

THAT'S WHY "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS WORKING ALL

OVER AMERICA TO HELP

STRUGGLING FAMILIES PUT

FOOD ON THE TABLE.

Reporter: CHRIS PRICE

SUPPORTS HIS WIFE AND TWO

CHILDREN BY WORKING AS AN

AUTO TECHNICIAN.

MY JOB TO ME IS VERY

IMPORTANT.

I THANK GOD EVERY DAY THAT

I HAVE A JOB.

Reporter: BUT A

RECENT CUT IN HIS HOURS

HAS MADE IT HARD JUST TO

PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE.

SO THE FAMILY IS FINDING

CREATIVE WAYS TO STRETCH

THEIR BUDGET.

CHRIS WALKS TWO MILES EACH

WAY TO AND FROM WORK, TO

SAVE ON GAS.

AND THEY GET FOOD FROM

BLESSING HOUSE.

BOB EVANS IS THE FOUNDER

OF THE STORE HOUSE, AND

SAYS IT IS A TEAM EFFORT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'D

DO WITHOUT "OPERATION

BLESSING."

IT'S SUCH A BLESSING TO

US.

WE NEVER KNOW WHAT WE'RE

GOING TO GET.

IT IS KIND OF LIKE

CHRISTMAS ONCE A MONTH.

IT PUT FOOD IN OUR

KITCHEN FOR US, AND MY

WIFE AND ME AND MY KIDS

ARE VERY, VERY GRATEFUL

FOR THAT.

Gordon: BE A PART OF

IT.

BE A PART OF EVERYTHING

WE'RE DOING RIGHT HERE IN

AMERICA.

WE'RE FEEDING THREE

MILLION AMERICANS EVERY

SINGLE MONTH THROUGH THE

WORK OF "OPERATION

BLESSING."

AND OUR TRUCKS ARE MOVING.

WE TAKE TRUCKLOADS OF FOOD

TO THESE FOOD BANKS, TO

CHURCHES INVOLVED IN FOOD

MINISTRIES.

WE WANT TO SEE PEOPLE HAVE

AN ABUNDANCE, SO THEY HAVE

THE ABILITY TO MAKE IT

THROUGH LIFE.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART

OF THAT, CALL US:

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

THANKS, GORDON.

STUDIES SHOW THAT ROUGHLY

75% OF AMERICANS BELIEVE

IN HEAVEN, BUT THAT

DOESN'T MEAN WE ALL AGREE

ABOUT WHAT IT IS LIKE.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS CLIP

FROM PAT ROBERTSON'S

LATEST D.V.D.

Wendy: I LIKE THE GUY

WHO SAYS, "HEAVEN IS GOING

TO BE PERFECT."

I AGREE WITH HIM.

GORDON?

Gordon: ALL RIGHT.

IT HAS BEEN A GLORIOUS

DAY.

$190,000 WAS THE AMOUNT.

WE WANT TO GO WAY OVER THE

TOP.

YOU CAN STILL BE A PART OF

IT.

CALL US NOW:

1-800-759-0700.

DON'T FORGET THE INTERNET

IF THE PHONES ARE BUSY,

LOG ON TO cbn.com.

YOU CAN GIVE MONTHLY

THERE.

AND WHEN YOU DO, YOU

AUTOMATICALLY SIGN UP FOR

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

WE'RE COUNTING DOWN TO

VICTORY.

IT'S BEEN A BIT OF A

SQUEAKER ON THIS ONE.

ONE SECOND LEFT.

WITH HAD $190,000

CHALLENGE, AND AGAINST

THAT YOU GAVE $195,000.

WE LEAVE YOU TODAY WITH

THESE WORDS FROM ACTS 20:

"REMEMBER THE WORDS OF THE

LORD JESUS, THAT HE SAID

IT IS MORE BLESSED TO GIVE

THAN TO RECEIVE."

FOR WENDY, FOR TERRY, FOR

ALL OF US HERE, GOD BLESS

YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.
