Building a Hedge of Financial Protection

Ted and Linda have seen amazing financial provision over the years. They strongly encourage people with a winning investment strategy you should try out. Ready to see what it can do for you? Read Transcript

NARRATOR: Ted and Linda are both retired and loving life.

They've also been loyal 700 Club viewers for years.

They were both watching the show when they gave

their lives to Jesus Christ.

Look into that TV, and he says, if you die right now,

do you know where you're going?

And I just kind of turned and looked at Linda, and I said,

I don't know.

I don't think so.

We started watching it every day from that night on.

We knew that God was speaking to us,

and it most definitely through The 700 Club.

A few weeks later, they saw Pat teaching on giving.


Do what he says, and then watch what he'll do for you.

NARRATOR: Linda was excited to try it out.

Ted, on the other hand, was reluctant.

How I grew up, it was nothing like that.

I never heard nothing about tithing.

So when she started mentioning that about taking

some of our money, I thought, whoa, now wait a minute.

NARRATOR: But after studying about what

the Bible said about giving, Ted jumped on board.

They started tithing to their local church

and giving $15 a month to CBN.

LINDA: It started immediately at that-- whenever we gave,

we got blessed.

One way or another, we got blessed.

And it wasn't to give to get, but it just happened.

TED: After we just kept giving, it just got

to be just a natural thing.

The Lord blessed us so good to where we

didn't owe money on the house.

NARRATOR: They say that God has honored their giving

over the past 30 years.

When Ted lost his job after his employer of 24 years shut down,

the couple continued to give.

LINDA: And I just said, OK, Lord, you said test me

and prove me.

And I said, I'm going to continue to write these checks.

And money would come in from people that owed us money

that I had forgotten about.

He immediately got another job.

I mean, just-- he always takes care of us.

NARRATOR: Ted and Linda have increased their giving

to CBN to over $400 a month.

They say their reward isn't financial gain.

It's the joy of helping others.

LINDA: The Lord's the center of it all.

I mean, you're being a witness of love

when you give to others.

And what joy it is when you see on TV what your money's going

for-- Operation Blessing, military, orphans-- and you

know that you're part of it.

I'd say, hey, try it.

Just try it.

All kind of people say you can't never out-give God.

And you can't.
