Gordon Terry: HELLO, AND

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB."

DONALD TRUMP SAYS HE CAN

GET THE ECONOMY GROWING

AGAIN.

HE IS PROMISING TO CUT

TAXES, AND HE SAYS HIS

PLAN WILL CREATE MILLIONS

OF NEW JOBS OVER THE NEXT

DECADE.

HILLARY CLINTON IS BACK ON

THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL AFTER

HER HEALTH SCARE, AND SHE

SAYS VOTER TURNOUT WILL

PLAY A KEY ROLE IN WHO

WINS THE ELECTION.

GARY LANE HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: DONALD

TRUMP UNVEILED MORE

DETAILS OF HIS ECONOMIC

PLAN IN NEW YORK.

TRUMP SAID AS PRESIDENT,

HE'LL ACT TO TAP INTO THE

UNREALLIZED POTENTIAL OF

AMERICAN WORKERS AND THEIR

DREAMS.

HE PLEDGED TO CREATE

25 MILLION NEW JOBS AND

GROW THE ECONOMY OVER 10

YEARS AT AN AVERAGE ANNUAL

RATE OF 3.5%.

U.S. ECONOMIC GROWTH UNDER

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS NEVER

REACHED 3% IN ANY ONE

YEAR, SOMETHING THAT HAS

NEVER HAPPENED UNDER

ANOTHER U.S. PRESIDENT.

I'M GOING TO LOWER YOUR

TAXES VERY, VERY

SUBSTANTIALLY.

I'M GOING TO GET RID OF

UNNECESSARY REGULATIONS.

ALL OF THE REGULATIONS, ON

YOUR BUSINESS AND IN YOUR

LIFE.

Reporter: TRUMP

APPEARED ON "THE TONIGHT

SHOW".

JIJIMMY FALLON MADE ONE

REQUEST OF THE

PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE.

CAN I MESS YOUR HAIR

UP?

GO AHEAD.

DONALD TRUMP, EVERYONE!

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

IT WAS BACK ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL FOR HILLARY

CLINTON.

FRESH FROM THREE AND A

HALF DAYS OF RESTING FROM

PNEUMONIA, SHE SPOKE TO

THE NATIONAL HISPANIC

CAUCUS IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

CLINTON WASTED LITTLE TIME

RESUMING HER ATTACKS

AGAINST DONALD TRUMP.

GOING AFTER HIM AFTER HE

TOLD THE "WASHINGTON POST"

HE DIDN'T WANT TO ANSWER

THE QUESTION RIGHT NOW,

WHETHER OR NOT PRESIDENT

OBAMA WAS BORN IN THE U.S.

THIS MAN WANTS TO BE

OUR NEXT PRESIDENT?

WHEN WILL HE STOP THIS

UGLINESS, HIS BIGOTRY?

IF WE JUST SIGH AND SHAKE

OUR HEADS AND ACCEPT THIS,

THEN WHAT DOES THAT TELL

OUR KIDS ABOUT WHO WE ARE?

Reporter: THE TRUMP

CAMPAIGN SAID HE DOES

BELIEVE THAT THE PRESIDENT

WAS BORN IN THE U.S.

EVEN THOUGH POLLS SHOW

MANY VOTERS DON'T LIKE

EITHER CANDIDATE, CLINTON

IS FACING AN ENTHUSIASM

GAP.

ONLY 50% OF DONALD TRUMP

SUPPORTERS SAY THEY'RE

EXCITED TO VOTE FOR HIM.

THE PERCENTAGE OF HILLARY

CLINTON'S SUPPORTERS IS

EVEN LESS.

ONLY 43% SAY THEY'RE

EXCITED ABOUT HER.

WITH LESS THAN TWO MONTHS

TO GO, BOTH CANDIDATES

KNOW THAT INDEPENDENT

VOTERS HOLD THE KEY TO

WINNING THE WHITE HOUSE.

AND HILLARY CLINTON SAYS

THERE IS ANOTHER IMPORTANT

FACTOR.

WHAT MATTERS WHO

REGISTERS TO VOTE AND WHO

IS MOTIVATED AND MOBILIZED

TO TURN OUT TO VOTE.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Terry: 52 MORE DAYS

OF LOGGING THROUGH ALL OF

THIS, AND THEN WE ACTUALLY

GET TO VOTE.

> IN OTHER NEWS, THE

NATION OF HUNGARY IS

SETTING UP AN OFFICE TO

HELP PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS

AROUND THE WORLD.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY.

Efrem: TERRY,

HUNGARY'S NEW SPECIAL

DEPARTMENT WILL COORDINATE

AND RESCUE PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS.

THE CHIEF-OF-STAFF OF THE

PRIME MINISTER SAYS IT

WILL ORGANIZE

INTERNATIONAL AID FOR

THESE CHRISTIANS WHEN THE

WORK OF PROFIT AND

NON-PROFIT GROUPS IS NOT

ENOUGH.

THE PRIME MINISTER HAS

WARNED THAT THE INFLUX OF

REFUGEES HAS THREATENED

CHRISTIANITY IN EASTERN

EUROPE.

HE SAYS GOVERNMENTS IN THE

REGION MUST TAKE ACTION TO

PROTECT CHRISTIANS.

> THE BODIES OF THREE

YOUNG AMERICAN MEN ARE

BACK IN THE U.S. AFTER

THEY DIED FIGHTING ISIS IN

SYRIA.

THE MEN NEVER JOINED THE

U.S. MILITARY.

THEY DIED SEPARATELY

FIGHTING WITH A KURDISH

GUERRILLA GROUP.

THE CASKETS OF LEVY

SHIRLEY, JORDAN

McTARVARD AND SAVAGE

ARRIVED ON WEDNESDAY.

> THE GOVERNMENT IS

RECALLING NEARLY ONE

MILLION OF THE COMPANY'S

GALAXY NOTE 7 PHONES AFTER

MORE THAN 90 REPORTS FROM

ACROSS THE COUNTRY OF

BATTERIES IN THE PHONES

SPONTANEOUSLY OVERHEATING

AND EXPLODING.

THE PRODUCT PRESENTS

SUCH A SERIOUS FIRE

HAZARD, I'M URGING ALL

CONSUMERS TO TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF THIS RECALL

RIGHT AWAY.

OWNERS OF THESE PHONES

SHOULD RETURN THEM

IMMEDIATELY.

THE NEW PHONE SHOULD BE

AVAILABLE BY NEX

WEDNESDAY.

> WE'LL BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

Terry: RANDY AND

KAREN PALLAR LIVED A

LAVISH LIFESTYLE FOR THE

FIRST TWO YEARS OF THEIR

MARRIAGE.

IF THEY WANTED TO GO

SOMEWHERE OR BUY

SOMETHING, THEY SIMPLY

SAID CHARGE IT.

BEFORE LONG THEY WERE

DROWNING IN DEBT, BUT HERE

IS HOW THEY ENDED UP ON

TOP OF THEIR FINANCES.

Reporter: RANDY AND

KAREN PALLAR WORKED HARD

TO LIVE THEIR CAREERS AND

LIVE FREE.

HE HAS BLESSED US

BEYOND WHAT WE COULD EVER

DREAM OF.

Reporter: BUT RANDY

AND KAREN HAD VERY

DIFFERENT ATTITUDES ABOUT

MONEY AND SUCCESS.

I WANTED THE SAME

THINGS I SAW OTHER PEOPLE

AROUND ME WANTING AND

GETTING.

IT WAS NORMAL.

YOU KNOW, THE AMERICAN

DREAM.

Reporter: IN THE

FIRST TWO YEARS THEY WERE

MARRIED, THEY LIVED A LIFE

FILLED WITH PARTIES,

TRAVEL, AND LAVISH

SPENDING, ALL ON CREDIT.

I WOULD SAY I HAD

PROBABLY ABOUT 20 CARDS.

THAT WAS A WAY TO GET THE

THINGS I WANTED.

IT WAS SO EASY.

YOU KNOW, YOU PULLED IT

OUT, CHARGED IT.

Reporter: BEFORE

LONG, THEY HAD $63,000 IN

CREDIT CARD DEBT.

TWO LARGE CAR LOANS, AND A

HEFTY MONTHLY MORTGAGE.

WE WERE IN THAT BIG

DEBT BONDAGE.

IT IS VERY ENTICING,

AND WE FELL INTO THAT

TRAP.

Reporter: BUT THE

DECISION TO CHANGE THEIR

DIRECTION CAME A YEAR

LATER.

RANDY'S BROTHER DIED

UNEXPECTANTLY, LEAVING

RANDY TO TAKE A DEEPER

LOOK AT HOW HE WAS LIVING.

I KNEW AT THAT MOMENT

THAT I NEEDED TO GIVE MY

LIFE TO THE LORD.

Reporter: RANDY BEGAN

TO SEARCH THE BIBLE, AND

HE FOUND THAT GOD HAD A

LOT TO SAY ABOUT HOW TO

LIVE AND HOW TO HANDLE

MONEY.

I FELT THE LORD'S

STRONG IMPRESSION.

AND HE SAID, YOU SHOULD

START TITHING.

Reporter: RANDY WAS

EAGER TO LEARN MORE ABOUT

GOD'S FINANCIAL

PRINCIPLES.

HE FOUND MANY OF THE

ANSWERS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

PAT TAUGHT THE THINGS

THAT HE TALKED ABOUT, THE

LAW OF RESIPROCITY, AND HE

TALKED ABOUT BUDGETING.

Reporter: RANDY HAD A

STRICT BUDGET, WHICH

INCLUDED TITHING AND

GIVING UP CREDIT CARDS.

BUT KAREN WASN'T READY TO

GIVE UP HER PLASTIC.

I CAN'T LIVE LIKE THAT.

I GET PAID ONCE A MONTH,

AND YOU WANT ME TO GO THE

WHOLE MONTH ON THIS AMOUNT

OF MONEY?

Reporter: SOON KAREN

ACCEPTED CHRIST, TOO.

AND SHE GOT ON BOARD WITH

RANDY'S PLANS TO USE GOD'S

PRINCIPLES FOR THEIR

MONEY.

WE DECIDED TO GET OUT

OF DEBT BECAUSE, ONE, THAT

IS NOT GOD'S PLAN FOR US.

WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE

SLAVE TO THE LENDER.

Reporter: AT FIRST,

RANDY WASN'T SURE HOW THEY

COULD KEEP UP WITH BILLS,

PAY OFF THEIR DEBT, AND

TITHE.

WHEN 10 PLUS PERCENT IS

NOT ALREADY INCLUDED WHAT

YOU DO, YES, IT IS A

RADICAL CHANGE.

Reporter: BUT AFTER

SEVERAL MONTHS, THE COUPLE

WAS AMAZED BY THEIR BOTTOM

LINE.

I CAN'T SAY I DON'T

KNOW HOW WE DIDN'T MISS

SOMETHING BECAUSE ON PAPER

IT LOOKED AS IF WE JUST

WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO PAY

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: AFTER SIX

YEARS OF DILIGENTLY

FOLLOWING GOD'S

PRINCIPLES, THEY PAID OFF

THEY'RE $63,000 IN DEBT

AND THEN THEIR MORTGAGE.

WHERE YOU CAN SEE GOD

REALLY WORKING, WE HAD

PAID EVERYTHING OFF.

OUR INCOME HAS PROBABLY

TRIPLED.

BEING OUT OF DEBT, WE

HAVE PEACE.

WE CAN HELP OTHERS.

Reporter: THAT'S WHY

IN 2004, THEY STARTED

GIVING TO CBN AT THE

THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL.

THEY WERE DOING THINGS

IN A LOT OF AREAS, DIGGING

WELLS, PROVIDING MEDICAL

ATTENTION, ESTABLISHING

HOMES FOR ORPHANS.

WE WANT TO SEE THE WORK

THAT CBN DOES.

THAT'S WHY WE GIVE.

Reporter: THEY KNOW

SUCCESS ISN'T ABOUT WHAT

THEY HAVE.

IT'S ABOUT WHAT THEY GIVE.

ASK GOD TO PLANT A

DESIRE IN YOUR HEART TO

GIVE MORE THAN TO HAVE

STUFF.

AND TO KNOW IN YOUR HEART

THAT GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF

ALL YOUR NEEDS ACCORDING

TO HIS RICHES AND GLORY.

THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO, IS TO BE FAITHFUL IN

WHAT HE ASKS YOU TO DO.

BLESSINGS WILL COME.

HE WILL GIVE YOU THE

DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.

Terry: BOY, THERE IS

SUCH RICH INFORMATION IN

WHAT RANDY AND KAREN SHARE

WITH US THERE.

THEY SAID WHEN THEY FIRST

LOOKED AT IT AND

CONSIDERED THE 10%, THEY

COULDN'T IMAGINE HOW THEY

WERE GOING TO BE ABLE TO

DO THAT, OR HOW THEY WOULD

PAY IT OFF.

HE SAYS TODAY, I'M STILL

NOT EXACTLY SURE HOW IT

ALL HAPPENED.

TRUST GOD.

BEGIN THE JOURNEY WITH

HIM.

HIS WISDOM IS TO SET US

FREE, TO GIVE US PEACE, SO

WE ARE NOT SLAVES TO THE

LENDER.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART

OF THAT, START THE

JOURNEY.

THIS IS WHAT GOD SAYS IN

MALACHI 3: 10: "BRING ALL

OF THE TITHES INTO THE

STOREHOUSE THAT THERE WILL

BE FOOD IN MY HOUSE, AND

PROVE ME NOW, 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."

THIS IS THE ONE PLACE

WHERE GOD SAYS, TEST ME

AND SEE IF WHAT I'M

TELLING YOU IS NOT TRUE.

TEST ME AND SEE IF I WILL

NOT BE YOUR PROVIDER IN

EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE.

START THAT JOURNEY WITH

GOD TODAY.

> I WANT YOU TO MEET

JOHN RICHARDS.

HE IS A MASTER

HAIRSTYLIST, AND HIS

CLIENTS COME FROM ALL

PARTS OF THE WORLD.

BUT HE REMEMBERS THE DAYS

WHEN HE LOST HIS FIRST

SALON AND WAS SOON $52,000

IN DEBT, AND WITH NO

RELIEF IN SIGHT, HE PRAYED

FOR A MIRACLE.

Reporter: JOHN

RICHARDS HAS BEEN A

HAIRSTYLIST FOR MORE THAN

50 YEARS.

IN THE LATE '90s, HE

OWNED A SUCCESSFUL SALON,

BUT HE MADE AN HONEST

MISTAKE.

THE I.R.S. CLASSIFIED ALL

OF HIS STYLISTS AS

EMPLOYEES, AND DEMANDED

BACK TAXES.

AND WHEN KNEE COULDN'T BE

INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS,

THEY ALL LEFT.

THEY ALL WALKED OUT ON

ME.

I WAS, LIKE, LEFT ALONE.

Reporter: JOHN LOST

HIS BUSINESS.

THAT'S WHEN HE STARTED

USING CREDIT CARDS TO PAY

HIS BILLS AND HOUSEHOLD

EXPENSES.

BY 2002, JOHN AND HIS

WIFE, LYNETTE, WERE

$52,000 IN DEBT.

AT THAT POINT, IT WAS

THE LOWEST WE HAD BEEN.

I ALWAYS KNEW GOD ALWAYS

TAKES CARE OF US.

I ALWAYS HAD THAT

ASSURANCE, BUT IT WAS

TOUGH.

Reporter: JOHN AND

LINDA HAD BEEN CBN

PARTNERS SINCE 1983.

EVEN THOUGH MONEY WAS

TIGHT, THEY KEPT GIVING TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

THAT'S ONE THING

LYNETTE WANTED TO MAKE

SURE WE KEPT DOING, KEEP

TITHING.

WE HAVE TO HONOR GOD, NO

MATTER WHAT.

IN 2002, I STARTED ASKING

GOD FOR A FINANCIAL

MIRACLE.

EVERY MORNING, I PRAYED,

GOD, I NEED A MIRACLE.

Reporter: ONE

AFTERNOON WHILE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," JOHN AND

LYNETTE JOINED PAT AND

GORDON AS THEY PRAYED.

PAT GOT DONE PRAYING,

AND NOTHING HAPPENED.

AND I SHRUGGED MY

SHOULDERS.

AND THEN THERE WERE FOUR

SECONDS LEFT OF THE

PROGRAM, AND GORDON SAID,

EXCUSE ME, DAD --

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE NAMED JOHN, AND

YOU'RE PRAYING FOR A

FINANCIAL MIRACLE.

AND GOD HAS HEARD YOU AND

HE IS GOING TO GIVE YOU A

MIRACLE.

I WAS A LITTLE

HESITANT, BUT GOD PROVED

HIMSELF TIME AND TIME

AGAIN.

Reporter: SEVERAL

MONTHS LATER, THEIR

FINANCIAL MIRACLE BEGAN TO

UNFOLD.

JOHN WENT BY HIS OLD SALON

AND NOTICED THAT IT WAS

STILL EMPTY.

HE IMMEDIATELY CALLED HER

FORMER LANDLORD.

HE CAME BACK WITH THIS

NUMBER, LESS THAN A THIRD

OF WHAT I WAS PAYING

BEFORE.

I SAID, CLIFF, CHECK THAT

OUT.

AND HE SAID, THAT'S NOT

RIGHT, IT IS $600 A MONTH.

I SAID, I'LL TAKE IT.

THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF

MY FINANCIAL MIRACLE.

THE FIRST TWO YEARS, I

DOUBLED WHAT I TOOK IN THE

YEAR BEFORE.

AND IN 2005, WE PAID OFF

ALL OF OUR DEALT.

IN 2006, MY BUSINESS

REALLY STARTED TAKING OFF.

ONE YEAR, I BELIEVE IT WAS

2007, I TOOK IN JUST SHY

OF $400,000 IN MY

BUSINESS.

Reporter: THEN IN

2008, THE STOCK MARKET

TOOK A DIVE.

MOST OF JOHN'S CLIENTS

PAID TOP DOLLAR FOR HAIR

EXTENSIONS, BUT WHEN THE

ECONOMY TANKED, MANY OF

THEM DISAPPEARED.

AND HE WAS FACING THE

POSSIBILITY OF LOSING HIS

SALON AGAIN.

WE NEED ANOTHER

MIRACLE.

SO WE PRAYED.

AND THAT'S WHEN WE DECIDED

TO JUMP TO THE FOUNDERS'

CLUB.

I SAID, LORD, THE MEASURE

YOU GIVE IS THE MEASURE

YOU'LL BE RECEIVING.

SO WE DID THAT.

THE NEXT DAY WE JUMPED TO

FOUNDERS' CLUB.

MY BUSINESS STARTED

GETTING BETTER.

BUT IN 2012, IT WAS

FEBRUARY, THAT THIS GIRL

SHOWED UP.

HER NAME IS BECKY.

AND SHE WANTED EXTENSIONS,

BUT NOBODY COULD DO HER

HAIR.

I'M ONE OF TWO PEOPLE WHO

CAN DO HAIR EXTENSIONS

AFTER CHEMO ON ONE INCH OF

HAIR.

THIS IS SO GOD, THAT GOD

WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE

THIS.

I NEVER SAW THIS COMING.

Reporter: A LOCAL

NEWS STATION COVERED

BECKY'S TRANSFORMATION,

AND IT WAS POSTED ON

YouTube AND

Facebook.

AND THAT THING WENT

VIRAL.

I HAVE PEOPLE COMING IN

FROM PERU, BELGIUM,

AUSTRALIA, THE

PHILIPPINES.

Reporter: JOHN IS

ALREADY BOOKING

APPOINTMENTS FOR NEXT

YEAR, AND HE AND LYNETTE

CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE

MINISTRIES OF CBN.

IT IS NOT THAT GOD

NEEDS OUR MONEY.

IT'S BECAUSE WE'RE

OBEDIENT TO HIS WORD.

AND OUT OF SACRIFICE, GOD

USES THAT.

AND SO WE ARE TO HELP

OTHERS.

AND WE ARE TO GIVE

SELFLESSLY.

AND IT IS A JOY TO GIVE.

YOU WANT TO GO ON THE

RIDE OF A LIFETIME?

GIVE.

I CAN'T EXPLAIN IT, I

DON'T KNOW HOW HE DOES IT,

BUT IT IS GOD'S RULE: GIVE

AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO

YOU.

Terry: I LOVE JOHN

AND LYNETTE'S STORY.

GOD DOESN'T NEED OUR

MONEY.

WHAT GOD WANTS IS A

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

FOR US TO KNOW THAT HE IS

GOOD DEEPLY ENOUGH THAT

WE'RE WILLING TO TRUST

HIM.

TRUST HIM.

AND THEN HE SHOWS OFF BY

PROVIDING FOR US.

HE IS OR DAD.

YOU CAN TRUST HIMSELF.

THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS IN

LUKE 6: 38: "GIVE AND IT

WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU, A

GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED

DOWN, SHAKEN TOGETHER, AND

RUNNING OVER WILL BE

POURED INTO YOUR LAP, FOR

WITH THE MEASURE YOU USE,

IT WILL BE MEASURED TO

YOU."

> I'VE GOT A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TODAY.

AND I WANT TO TELL YOU

ABOUT IT RIGHT NOW.

WE HAVE SOME FRIENDS THAT

HAVE STOOD WITH CBN FOR A

LONG TIME.

THEY PARTNER WITH US IN

THE THINGS THAT WE DO

AROUND THE WORLD.

AND TODAY THEY HAVE SAID

THEY WILL GIVE AN

OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO

CALL.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR

LAST DAY OF TELETHON HERE.

AND THIS IS WHAT SUPPORTS

WHAT WE GET TO DO

THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

SO WE'RE INVITING YOU TO

A MONTH, OR THERE ARE

DIFFERENT "700 CLUB"

WENDY?

Wendy: THAT'S A GOOD

WORD, TERRY.

THANKS SO MUCH.

WELL, NO MATTER WHAT

YOU'RE FACING RIGHT NOW,

YOU NEED THE WORD OF GOD

IN YOUR LIFE.

LET'S FACE IT, WE ALL DO.

AND NOTHING IS MORE

POWERFUL THAN HEARING THE

SPOKEN WORD.

THAT'S WHY PAT ROBERTSON

HAS RECORDED THE GOSPEL OF

JOHN ON C.D., AND NOW

WE'RE OFFERING THIS AS OUR

GIFT TO YOU WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

TAKE A LOOK.

Pat: HELLO, THIS IS

PAT ROBERTSON.

I'VE JUST FINISHED

RECORDING ONE OF THE MOST

BELOVED BOOKS IN ALL THE

BIBLE.

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO

JOHN.

"I AM THE RESURRECTION AND

THE LIFE.

THE ONE WHO BELIEVES IN ME

WILL LIVE, EVEN THOUGH

THEY DIE."

MY HOPE IS THAT YOU WILL

USE THIS RECORDING TO

ALLOW THE WORD OF GOD TO

ABIDE IN YOU.

Pat: "IF YOU REMAIN

IN ME AND MY WORDS REMAIN

IN YOU, ASK WHATEVER YOU

WISH AND IT WILL BE DONE

FOR YOU."

Pat: LISTEN TO IT

AGAIN AND AGAIN AND SPEAK

THE WORDS ALONG WITH ME.

LET THESE GREAT PASSAGES

FILL YOUR HEART AS THE

WORD OF GOD TRANSFORMS

YOUR MIND AND BUILDS YOUR

FAITH.

Announcer: RECEIVE

THE POWER OF GOD'S

LIFE-GIVING WORD.

THE GOSPEL OF JOHN, READ

BY PAT ROBERTSON,

AVAILABLE NOW.

Pat: MAY GOD RICHLY

BLESS YOU AS YOU MEDITATE

ON JESUS.

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

YOU KNOW, I LOVE HOW THE

GOSPEL OF JOHN STARTS.

IT STARTS "IN THE

BEGINNING WITH THE WORD,

AND THE WORD IS WITH GOD

AND THE WORD IS GOD."

I LOVE THE FACT THAT OUT

OF ALL OF THE BOOKS IN THE

BIBLE, IT IS THE ONE YOU

REALLY GET TO KNOW JESUS

AS THE SON OF GOD, AS THE

LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

AND I THINK, PROBABLY EVEN

MORE IMPORTANTLY, HOW MUCH

YOU LOVE YOU AND ME.

HE LOVES YOU AND ME SO

MUCH THAT HE WENT TO THE

CROSS AND DIED FOR MY SINS

AND FOR YOUR SINS.

THERE IS SO MUCH IN THE

GOSPEL OF JOHN.

AND NOW WE'VE MADE IT EASY

FOR YOU TO LISTEN TO IT

BECAUSE IT IS ALL RIGHT

HERE ON THIS C.D.

YOU CAN POP IT IN YOUR CAR

AND LISTEN TO IT.

YOU CAN FILL YOUR HEART

WITH GOD'S PROMISES.

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU

WHEN YOU CALL RIGHT NOW

AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, IS ALL IT TAKES TO

BECOME A CBN PARTNER.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A CBN

PARTNER AT THAT LEVEL, I

WANT TO SAY THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

YOU'RE MAKING A HUGE

DIFFERENCE AROUND THE

WORLD AND HERE AT HOME AS

WELL.

I WOULD LIKE TO CHALLENGE

YOU TO TAKE IT UP TO OUR

GOLD LEVEL.

THAT'S JUST $40 A MONTH.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, WE WANT

TO BLESS YOU BACK WITH

THREE OF PAT'S NEW

RECORDING OF THE GOSPEL OF

JOHN.

IF YOU CAN GO TO OUR

THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL, WE'RE

GOING TO GIVE YOU FIVE

C.D.s.

THINK OF FOUR PEOPLE WHO

CAN BE BLESSED BY THIS.

THIS OUR GIFT TO YOU RIGHT

NOW WHEN YOU CALL.

I'LL THROW IT OVER TO

GORDON.

Gordon: MORE THAN A

THIRD OF MILLENNIALS ARE

LIVING WITH THEIR PARENTS

BECAUSE THEY CAN'T AFFORD

TO LIVE ON THEIR OWN.

BUT NOT THIS COUPLE.

THAT'S BECAUSE THEY'VE

DISCOVERED A FINANCIAL

STRATEGY THAT HAS

INCREASED THEIR PROFITS

FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS.

Reporter: JORDAN AND

AARON WORK HARD AND PLAY

HARD.

THEY STAY FIT, LOVE A GOOD

MEAL, AND LIKE MANY

MILLENNIALS, THEY GO ON

SOCIAL MEDIA.

THEY BOTH ADMIT THEY NEED

TO BE CAREFUL BECAUSE IT

IS EASY TO GET SUCKED INTO

A SELFISH MINDSET.

IT IS TO LOOK GOOD, AS

FAR AS OUTFITS, WHAT CAR

THEY DRIVE.

EVERYBODY IS TRYING TO GET

AHEAD.

Reporter: THEY TRY

HARD TO STAY FOCUSED ON

OTHER THINGS.

WE PRIORITIZED WHEN WE

FIRST GOT MARRIED, GOD IS

NUMBER ONE, THEN FAMILY

NUMBER TWO, AND OUR JOBS

AND CAREER, NUMBER THREE.

Reporter: AND WHILE

THEY'RE VERY SUCCESSFUL

REAL ESTATE BROKERS, THEIR

GOAL ISN'T TO BUILD A BIG

BANK ACCOUNT SO THEY CAN

BUY THINGS FOR THEMSELVES.

INSTEAD, THEY CHOOSE TO

INVEST IN PROMOTING GOD

AND GIVING TO OTHERS.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

TITHED TO THEIR CHURCH AND

ARE CBN PARTNERS.

THEY INCREASE THEIR GIVING

TO CBN ON A REGULAR BASIS.

I MADE A COVENANT IN MY

HEART WITH THE LORD THAT I

WOULD GIVE 5% MORE A YEAR.

AND IN DOING THAT, I JUST

DID IT AS KIND OF A STEP

OF FAITH.

I REALIZED, HE REALLY IS

MY PROVIDER.

SO I CAN TRUST HIM WITH

THESE EXTRA LITTLE BITS

EVERY MONTH AND EVERY

YEAR.

Reporter: SINCE

GIVING MORE, THEY HAVE

SEEN THEIR PROFITS

INCREASE FOR THE PAST SIX

YEARS.

JORDAN AND AARON CREDIT IT

TTO GOD.

WE ARE NO MORE SPECIAL

THAN THE GUY NEXT TO US.

WE JUST FOUND THIS KEY TO

PARTNER WITH GOD AND WHAT

HE IS DOING ON EARTH.

I THINK IT IS ABOUT

YOUR HEART POSTURE TO THE

LORD AND THE THING YOU'RE

GIVING TO.

Reporter: THEY

ESPECIALLY LIKE GIVING TO

CBN BECAUSE OF HOW CBN

USES SOCIAL MEDIA TO SHARE

STORIES OF LOVE.

I POST THEM ON MY

Facebook, AND IT IS A

NICE TOOL THAT THE LORD IS

USING TO PLANT SEEDS IN

PEOPLE AND TO REACH OUT TO

THEM.

I JUST KNOW IN MY LIFE

THAT THE LORD, HE HAS

FILLED ME WITH HIS LOVE

AND HIS SPIRIT, AND IT

JUST MAKES ME COME ALIVE.

AND I KNOW THAT GOD REALLY

IS EVERYTHING IN LIFE.

SO IF I CAN PARTNER WITH

GOD IN BRINGING THAT SAME

MESSAGE TO MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE ACROSS THE WORLD

THROUGH WHAT CBN IS DOING,

THEN THAT'S JUST -- WHAT

AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY AND

PRIVILEGE.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE OTHERS

TO BE PARTNERS WITH CBN

BECAUSE IT REALLY HAS

BROUGHT SO MUCH BLESSING

TO OUR LIVES.

THERE IS NO BETTER

ORGANIZATION OUT THERE TO

GIVE TO.

Gordon: JORDAN AND

AARON HAVE IT.

THEY HAVE THE SECRETS.

THEY KNOW IF THEY FOLLOW

THE PRINCIPLES THAT GOD

HAS LAID OUT IN THE BIBLE,

THEY'LL HAVE SUCCESS.

HERE IS A PROGRAMS FROM

MATTHEW 25: "TO THOSE WHO

USE WELL WHAT THEY ARE

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."

JORDAN AND AARON SAID,

WE'RE GOING TO USE WELL

WHAT WE'VE BEEN GIVEN.

WE'RE GOING TO INCREASE,

AND WE'RE GOING TO DO THAT

REGULARLY AND SEE WHAT GOD

DOES.

AND YOU SEE THE RESULTS.

YOU SEE WHAT THEIR LIFE

MEANS.

SO IF YOU WANT TO START

DOING THAT, GIVE US A CALL

AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

1-800-700-7000.

IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE

GOSPEL PREACHED AROUND THE

WORLD, JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

IF YOU WANT TO SEE PEOPLE

HELPED AROUND THE WORLD,

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

DO IT NOW.

1-800-700-7000.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANK YOU,

GORDON.

WELL, DO YOU WANT TO READ

THE BIBLE MORE BUT YOU

JUST DON'T KNOW WHERE TO

BEGIN?

WE'VE GOT THE ANSWER HERE.

A C.D. SET OF THE GOSPEL

OF JOHN READ BY OUR VERY

OWN PAT ROBERTSON.

TAKE A LOOK.

Announcer: LET THE

SPOKEN WORD OF GOD

TRANSFORM YOUR MIND AND

INCREASE YOUR FAITH WITH

THE GOSPEL OF JOHN.

Pat: "I HAVE COME

THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE

AND HAVE IT TO THE FULL."

Announcer: FIND

ASSURANCE OF GOD'S LOVE

AND PLAN FOR YOU AS YOU

LISTEN AGAIN AND AGAIN.

Pat: "MY SHEEP LISTEN

TO MY VOICE.

I GIVE THEM ETERNAL LIFE."

Announcer: FILL YOUR

HEART AND MIND WITH THE

PROMISE OF GOD.

GET THE GOSPEL OF JOHN

READ BY PAT ROBERTSON,

AVAILABLE NOW.

Wendy: MAYBE YOU'RE

SAYING, I'VE READ THE

GOSPEL OF JOHN SO MANY

TIMES, I DON'T NEED TO

READ IT.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT FAITH

COMES BY HEARING, AND

HEARING BY THE WORD OF

GOD.

THERE IS SOMETHING THAT

HAPPENS TO OUR SPIRITS AND

OUR SOULS WHEN WE LISTEN

TO THE WORD OF GOD.

I KNOW FROM PERSONAL

EXPERIENCE, WHEN I LISTEN

TO THE WORD OF GOD, IT

JUST ENCOURAGES ME.

IT IS SOMETHING YOU CAN DO

WHEN YOU'RE DRIVING, WHEN

YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY TO THE

GYM, WHEN YOU'RE ON YOUR

WAY TO THE GROCERY STORE.

YOU CAN FEED YOUR SPIRIT.

A LOT OF TIMES, WHO HAS

TIME TO SIT DOWN AND READ

THE BIBLE.

BUT YOU CAN LISTEN TO THE

BIENBIBLE IN YOUR CAR.

YOU CAN FILL YOUR DRIVE

TIME WITH GOD'S WORD AND

SO MUCH MORE.

THE NUMBER TO CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A CBN

PARTNER, THAT'S $20 A

MONTH, BY THE WAY, 65

CENTS A DAY, IS ALL IT

TAKES TO BECOME A CBN

PARTNER.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

YOU'RE MAKING A HUGE

DIFFERENCE.

BUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO

BE AN EVEN BIGGER

BLESSING, LET'S TAKE IT TO

THE GOLD LEVEL, $40 A

MONTH.

AND WE'RE GOING TO BLESS

YOU WITH THREE C.D.s.

IF YOU CAN TAKE IT UP TO

OUR THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL,

$84 OR HIGHER, WE'RE GOING

TO BLESS YOU WITH FIVE.

I'M GOING TO THROW IT OVER

TO MISS TERRY NOW.

Terry: THANKS, WENDY.

> I WANT YOU TO MEET

4-YEAR-OLD AMALA, WHO HAS

A BRIGHT SMILE THAT COULD

LIGHT UP ANY ROOM.

AND NOW THANKS TO FRIENDS

LIKE YOU, SHE HAS A BRIGHT

FUTURE AS WELL.

TAKE A LOOK.

> AMALA IS AN ENERGETIC

AND HAPPY LITTLE GIRL.

SHE IS ALWAYS SINGING,

AND SHE WANTS TO DO

EVERYTHING I DO, EVEN IF

IT IS SOMETHING AS SIMPLE

AS WASHING DISHES.

Terry: AMALA'S

PARENTS ALWAYS DO THEIR

BEST TO SHOW HER HOW MUCH

THEY LOVE HER.

BUT WHEN HER FOURTH

BIRTHDAY ARRIVED, THEY

WERE FACED WITH A

DIFFICULT CHOICE.

SHE ASKED US WHY THERE

WASN'T ANY PRESENTS.

I TRIED TO EXPLAIN THAT IF

WE DID, WE WOULD HAVE NO

FOOD FOR THE REST OF THE

WEEK.

SHE JUST DIDN'T

UNDERSTAND.

Terry: EVERY MORNING,

AMALA WATCHED HER FRIENDS

WALK TO THE LOCAL DAYCARE

CENTER.

HER PARENTS COULDN'T

AFFORD THE FEES THERE, SO

SHE HAD TO STAY HOME.

SHE CRIED AND TOLD ME

SHE WANTED TO GO WITH A

FRIEND.

IT WAS JUST ANOTHER THING

SHE WANTED THAT WE COULD

NOT GIVE HER.

Terry: THEN "LIFE

CHILD," A MINISTRY

SUPPORTED BY CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE,"

LEARNED ABOUT AMALA.

WE ENROLLED HER IN THE

DAYCARE AND PAID ALL OF

HER FEES.

NOW DURING THE DAY, SHE IS

LEARNING LOTS OF NEW

THINGS.

AND SHE FINALLY GETS TO

PLAY WITH HER FRIENDS.

I LOVE IT HERE.

AT HOME, I ONLY HAVE ONE

TOY.

BUT HERE I HAVE MANY TOYS

AND MANY FRIENDS.

Terry: DURING ONE OF

THEIR BIBLE LESSONS, THE

TEACHER ASKED THE CLASS

WHO WANTED TO BE JESUS'

FRIEND?

EVERY LITTLE HAND WENT UP,

ACCEPT AMALA.

I DIDN'T RAISE MY HAND

BECAUSE I FIRST WANTED TO

GO HOME AND CLEAN MYSELF

UP.

I DIDN'T WANT TO BE DIRTY

WHEN I MET JESUS.

Terry: SOON AMALA'S

PARENTS GAVE THEIR HEARTS

TO CHRIST, TOO.

AMALA IS THE ONE WHO

TOLD US TO PRAY, SOMETHING

WE NEVER DID BEFORE.

I HAVE REALIZED HOW

IMPORTANT EDUCATION IS.

I KNOW NOW THAT THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING IS THE

BIBLE AND OUR RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD.

Terry: AND TO HELP

THE FAMILY EARN A STEADY

INCOME, CBN GOT AMALA'S

MOTHER ENROLLED IN SEWING

CLASSES.

SOON SHE'LL BE STARTING

HER OWN BUSINESS.

SO THE NEXT TIME AMALA'S

BIRTHDAY COMES AROUND,

SHE'LL HAVE PLENTY OF CAKE

AND PRESENTS.

I NO LONGER WORRY.

SHE HAS A BRIGHT FUTURE.

THANK YOU, CBN!

Terry: SHE IS ONE

BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL.

AND NOW SHE HAS ONE

AMAZING LIFE THAT'S BEGUN.

HER WHOLE FUTURE IS GOING

TO BE DIFFERENT BECAUSE

YOU CARED ENOUGH TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE FOR HER.

AND NOT JUST HER, BUT FOR

HER MOM AS WELL.

THAT WHOLE FAMILY IS GOING

TO CHANGE BECAUSE YOU WERE

THERE AT A POINT OF NEED.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT TODAY.

MEETING PEOPLE RIGHT AT

THEIR POINT OF NEED,

REACHING OUT AND GIVING

THEM A HANDS-UP SO THAT

THEY CAN LIVE DIFFERENTLY.

IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, YOU'RE DOING THAT

ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

AND IF YOU'RE NOT, TODAY

IS THE DAY YOU NEED TO

JOIN.

YOU NEED TO STOP JUST

WATCHING AND FINALLY SAY,

I WANT TO BE A PART OF

THIS.

AND THE WAY TO DO THAT IS

TO GO TO YOUR PHONE AND

CALL THIS TOLL-FREE

NUMBER: 1-800-700-7000.

YOU JUST TELL THE PERSON

WHO ANSWERS ON THE OTHER

END, I WANT TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

TELL THEM WHAT CLUB LEVEL,

AND WE ALREADY SAY THANK

YOU TO YOU FOR CARING TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

GORDON?

Gordon: IN CHINA, A

YOUNG GIRL DREW PICTURES,

PICKED WILD FLOWERS AND

MADE A WREATH TO CELEBRATE

THE BIRTH OF HER NEW BABY

BROTHER.

THEN WHEN HE WAS BORN, ALL

OF THE CELEBRATIONS

STOPPED, AND SUDDENLY HIS

FAMILY BECAME DESPERATE

FOR HELP.

Terry: SHE COULD

HARDLY WAIT TO MEET HER

BABY BROTHER.

I PICKED WILD FLOWERS

IN THE MOUNTAINS AND MADE

A WREATH HE COULD WEAR

WHEN HE GOT HOME FROM THE

HOSPITAL.

AND I DREW A PICTURE OF

HIM, LOOKING REALLY

HANDSOME.

Terry: BUT SADLY, SU

SONG WAS BORN WITH A CLEFT

LIP AND PALATE.

HE WAS IN CRITICAL

CONDITION.

Terry: MR. GOU

WORRIED HE WOULDN'T BE

ABLE TO AFFORD SURGERY FOR

HIM, BECAUSE AS A FARMER

HE ONLY MAKES $9 A WEEK.

AND HIS WIFE CAN'T WORK

BECAUSE SHE IS ALMOST

COMPLETELY DEAF.

I JUST HOPED FOR A

MIRACLE.

Terry: SU SONG'S

CLEFT LIP AND PALATE MADE

IT HARD FOR HIM TO EAT OR

DRINK.

IT WAS SO BAD THAT I

COULDN'T GET CLOSE TO HIM.

I NEVER GAVE HIM THE GIFTS

I MADE HIM.

I THREW AWAY THE WREATH.

Terry: MEANWHILE, SHE

CAME UP WITH A PLAN.

I SAVED EVERYTHING I

COULD FOR SURGERY FOR SU

SONG.

I NEVER SPENT ANY MONEY ON

DRINKS, EVEN ON HOT DAYS.

BUT MY DAD SAID IT WOULD

COST THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS,

I CRIED.

Terry: SU SONG STAYED

INSIDE, MALNOURISHED AND

DEHYDRATED.

THE FEW TIMES HE WENT OUT,

PEOPLE LAUGHED AT HIM AND

CALLED HIM A MONSTER.

I FELT SO SORRY FOR MY

POOR LITTLE BROTHER.

I WANTED TO PROTECT HIM.

Terry: THEN A FLOOD

DROWNED THE FAMILY'S

CROPS, DRAINING THEIR

INCOME.

ALL HOPE FOR SURGERY WAS

LOST.

I BEGGED THE DOCTORS TO

HELP SU SONG, BUT THEY

SAID NO.

THEY DIDN'T CARE ABOUT US

BECAUSE WE ARE POOR.

Terry: SHORTLY AFTER

THIS, CBN CAME TO SU

SONG'S VILLAGE.

WE TOLD THE GOUs WE

WOULD BE HAPPY TO PROVIDE

CLEFT LIP AND PALATE

SURGERY FREE OF CHARGE.

IT SEEMS LIKE OUR WORLD

IMMEDIATELY WENT FROM

CLOUDY TO SUNSHINE.

THE SURGERY WAS SO GOOD,

SU SONG WON'T EVEN HAVE

SCARS.

HE IS FINALLY STARTING TO

GROW AND CAN EVEN GO TO

SCHOOL.

I KNOW HE WILL HAVE A GOOD

LIFE.

Terry: AND NOW SU

SONG LOOKS AS CUTE AS THE

PICTURES HIS CENTER FIELD

DRAWS.

SISTER DRAWS.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING

US.

THANK YOU FOR BRINGING US

ALL HOPE.

MAY YOU BE HAPPY FOREVER.

Gordon: BRINGING

HOPE.

JUST IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO

SAY, YOU BROUGHT HOPE TO

THAT FAMILY.

YOU BROUGHT HOPE TO THAT

LITTLE BOY.

YOU GAVE HIM A HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

IT IS ALL POSSIBLE WHEN

PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU SAY,

YES, WE CARE ENOUGH TO

GIVE.

WE WANT TO BE A PART OF

IT.

IF THAT'S YOU, CALL US

NOW: 1-800-700-7000.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A $

$108,000.

THAT MEANS YOUR GIVING IS

AUTOMATICALLY MATCHED AND

DOUBLED.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A MEMBER

YOU.

CONSIDER GOING UP.

CONSIDER BEING A "700

CLUB" GOLD MEMBER AT $40 A

MONTH.

WE ALSO HAVE A THOUSAND

CLUB AND THAT BREAKS OUT

TO $484 A MONTH.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS SO

MUCH.

NOTHING INCREASES YOUR

FAITH LIKE THE WORD OF

GOD.

AND THE BEST WAY TO FILL

YOUR MIND WITH GOD'S

PROMISES IS BY HEARING THE

WORDS SPOKEN OUT LOUD.

THAT'S WHY PAT HAS

RECORDED THIS TWO C.D.

SET, THE GOSPEL OF JOHN,

ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL

BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

Wendy: IT IS

AVAILABLE NOW, BUT YOU

HAVE TO GO TO YOUR PHONES

TO GET IT.

AND THE NUMBER ON YOUR

SCREEN: 1-800-700-7000.

THAT IS THE WAY YOU GET

THIS.

LET THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD

CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

HEARING THE WORD OF GOD

THAT TRANSFORMS OUR MINDS,

THAT ENCOURAGES OUR FAITH.

SO WE WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

IT IS OUR GIFT WHEN YOU

CALL RIGHT NOW.

ALL THIS WEEK I'VE BEEN

CHALLENGING YOU.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A CBN

PARTNER AT OUR $20 A MONTH

AND YOU CANNOT OUTGIVE

GOD.

RIGHT, GORDON?

Gordon: THAT'S RIGHT.

> WELL, JOANNE STASHA

WAS IN HER 80s, AND YET

SHE REMAINS ACTIVE EVERY

DAY, HELPING PEOPLE ALL

OVER THE WORLD, WITHOUT

EVEN LEAVING HER LIVING

ROOM.

HERE IS HOW SHE DOES IT.

Reporter: EVERY DAY

84-YEAR-OLD JOANNE STASHA

GETS ON HER COMPUTER, TO

PRAY FOR PENA PEOPLE ALL OVER

THE WORLD WHO NEED HOPE

AND ENCOURAGEMENT.

WHEN YOU PRAY FOR

SOMEBODY, THERE ARE THREE

INVOLVED: THERE IS YOU AND

GOD AND THE PERSON YOU'RE

PRAYING FOR.

AND THAT IS SO PERSONAL.

I HAVE TO LOOK FOR

OPPORTUNITIES TO WITNESS

FOR GOD ALL THE TIME.

Reporter: SHE FOUND

ONE OF THOSE STUDENTS WHEN

SHE SAW CBN HELPING PEOPLE

RISE ABOVE THEIR

CIRCUMSTANCES.

CBN IS FANTASTIC IN

GETTING PEOPLE SET UP SO

THAT THEY CAN BE PROUD OF

THEMSELVES AND MAKE THEIR

OWN MONEY, EARN THEIR OWN

WAY, INSTEAD OF JUST

TAKING A HANDOUT.

Reporter: JOANNE

STARTED GIVING TO CBN AS A

THOUSAND CLUB MEMBER.

THEN ONE DAY WHILE

WATCHING A TELETHON, SHE

DOUBLED HER GIVING.

I SAW THIS LITTLE CHILD

TRYING TO HELP HER MOTHER

GET THIS DIRTY WATER.

AND I THOUGHT, LORD,

THEY'LL GET SICK AND

THEY'LL DIE.

THEY CAN'T DRINK THAT

WATER.

THEY NEED A WELL WITH

CLEAR WATER.

SO THE HOLY SPIRIT JUST

SPOKE TO MY HEART.

WELL, WHAT ARE YOU GOING

TO DO ABOUT IT?

AND I THINK, THIS IS ONLY

GOD.

GOD ONLY WORKS THIS WAY,

WHERE HE REACHES OUT AND

TOUCHES PEOPLE BY MY

OBEDIENCE, PLUS EVERYBODY

ELSE THAT GIVES.

Reporter: JOANNE ALSO

SEES HOW HER GIFTS ARE

HELPING HER

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN LEARN

ABOUT GOD AND HIS

TEACHINGS THROUGH CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK."

I LEARNED FROM

"SUPERBOOK" ABOUT GOD,

THAT HE CAN DO EVERYTHING.

YOU JUST NEED TO LISTEN

AND LEARN FROM HIM.

THAT EXCITES ME AND

BLESSES ME.

AND I'M INVESTING IN THEIR

ETERNITY, IN THEIR ETERNAL

LIFE.

Reporter: IT IS THIS

SAME DESIRE FOR PEOPLE ALL

AROUND THE WORLD THAT

JOANNE SHARES WITH CBN.

I'M VERY HAPPY -- VERY

HAPPY BEING A CBN PARTNER.

I FEEL LIKE I'M A PART OF

A WONDERFUL, BIG FAMILY.

AND THEIR ONLY MAIN

CONCERN IS SPREADING THE

WORD OF GOD AND HELPING

THOSE IN NEED.

AND I'M A PART OF THAT,

AND THAT'S A BLESSING.

Gordon: BE A PART OF

IT.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE A LOT MORE THAN A TV

SHOW.

WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD.

WE WANT TO PREACH THE

GOSPEL AROUND THE WORLD.

NOT IN ENGLISH.

WE WANT TO TRAIN

CHRISTIANS HOW TO PREACH

THE GOSPEL, THROUGH

TELEVISION, IN THEIR OWN

LANGUAGE, IN THEIR OWN

COUNTRIES, SHOWING WHAT

"THE 700 CLUB."

SO CALL US NOW:

1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, LAST MAY

CATASTROPHIC FLOODS

RAVAGED THE CITY OF

ROSENBURG, TEXAS.

IINCLUDING THE HOME OF THE

ANDRATI FAMILY.

IN NO TIME THEY SAW 40

YEARS OF THEIR LIVES

REDUCED TO A PILE OF

RUBBLE ON THE SIDE OF THE

ROAD.

Reporter: FELICIANO

AND AURORA DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO AFTER A

CATASTROPHIC FLOOD IN

DATEDED THEIR TEXAS HOME.

ALL OF THE FLOORING,

INSULATION, ALL OF THE

FURNITURE -- EVERYTHING

HAD TO BE STRIPPED OUT OF

THE HOUSE.

IT BECAME A VERY PITIFUL

SIGHT.

Reporter: BUT THE

FAMILY DID WHAT THEY COULD

TO KEEP THEIR SPIRITS UP.

EVERYTHING HAS A

REASON.

WE HAVE A LOT OF FAITH IN

GOD.

I HAD TO TELL MY HUSBAND

EVERY DAY, IT'S GOING TO

BE OKAY.

THE BIGGEST

DISAPPOINTMENT FOR ME WAS

SEEING THE PILE...40 YEARS

YEARS...JUST OUT BY THE

ROAD.

IT IS STILL HARD FOR ME TO

SEE.

Reporter: EVEN BEFORE

THE FLOOD, IT WAS

DIFFICULT HAVING THREE

GENERATIONS LIVING UNDER

ONE ROOF.

THE BOYS ARE STILL DEALING

WITH THE GRIEF OF LOSING

THEIR DAD IN A CAR

ACCIDENT.

IN THE WAKE OF THE

FLOODING, "OPERATION

BLESSING" SET UP A BASE OF

OPERATIONS IN ROSENBERG,

TEXAS.

THAT'S WHERE "OPERATION

BLESSING" BECAME A

BLESSING TO ME.

THEY SENT IN A GROUP OF

VOLUNTEERS.

THEY WENT AHEAD AND TOOK

EVERYTHING OUT OF THE

HOUSE.

TOOK THE SHEET ROCK OUT TO

ABOUT FOUR FEET.

Reporter: BUT THE

"OPERATION BLESSING" TEAM

WAS NOT FINISHED.

WE ASKED THE FAMILY TO

STAY AWAY FOR A COUPLE OF

WEEKS SO WE COULD GET A

LITTLE EXTRA WORK DONE ON

THEIR HOME.

WE NEVER THOUGHT THIS

WAS GEG T GOING TO HAPPEN.

WE SAW THE BIG BANNER,

EVERYBODY WELCOMING US

HOME.

AND WHEN WE OPENED THE

FRONT DOOR, NEVER

EXPECTING WHAT WE SAW.

WOW!

A COMPLETE HOME.

I WOULD HAVE NEVER GUESSED

THAT "OPERATION BLESSING"

AND THEIR GROUP OF

VOLUNTEERS COULD DO SUCH A

JOB IN SUCH A SHORT TIME.

AND IT'S TRULY A BLESSING

TO US.

THIS WAS JUST BEYOND

OUR WILDEST DREAM.

YOU'VE GOT YOUR OWN BED

NOW.

AS A FATHER, AFTER

SEEING WHAT I HAVE SEEN,

IT WAS OVERWHELMING.

TO HAVE OUR LIVES PUT

TOGETHER AGAIN.

Reporter: WITH THE

FLOOD DAMAGE TAKEN CARE

OF, FELICIANO AND AURORA

CAN NOW FOCUS ON HELPING

THEIR FAMILY HEAL.

THANK YOU.

FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY

HEART, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE, ALL

OF THE DONORS, AND

"OPERATION BLESSING," ALL

OF THE VOLUNTEERS.

WHEN I HEAR THE WORD

"OPERATION BLESSING," I

SEE THE FACES OF ALL OF

THE PEOPLE THAT WERE HERE,

HELPING.

AND,, O, OF COURSE, ALL I'VE

GOT TO DO IS LOOK AROUND.

HERE IT IS.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: YOUR HEART

GOES OUT TO THIS FAMILY.

THEY LOSE THEIR SON, THE

FATHER OF THESE

GRANDCHILDREN, AND THEN

THEY LOSE THEIR HOME, 40

YEARS OF POSSESSIONS.

AND THEN YOU ARRIVE.

WHEN "OPERATION BLESSING"

ARRIVES AND THOSE TRUCKS

ROLL IN, IT HAPPENS

BECAUSE OF YOU.

THAT'S WHY TODAY WE'RE

SAYING, WILL YOU HELP US

DO MORE OF THIS?

THERE IS SO MUCH NEED IN

THE UNITED STATES AND

AROUND THE WORLD.

AND "700 CLUB" PARTNERS

ARE IMPACTING EVERYTHING.

$20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY, MAKES YOU A "700

CLUB" MEMBER.

CALL NOW.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

GORDON?

Gordon: LITTLE BOYS

LOVE SUPER HEROS.

THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS

THAT CARY AND NEIL WERE

DRAWN TO "SUPERBOOK."

THEY WANTED THEIR SONS TO

HAVE THE ULTIMATE ROLE

MODEL FOR THEIR SUPER

HERO, AND THAT'S EXACTLY

WHAT THEY GOT.

Reporter: CARY AND

NEIL ARE CAREFUL ABOUT

WHAT THEIR KIDS WATCH ON

TV.

OUR KIDS ARE AT THE AGE

WHERE THEY'RE FASCINATED

WITH SUPER HEROS.

THE WORLD WILL PUT OUT

SUPER HEROS THAT, FOR ONE,

ARE NOT REAL, AND, TWO,

YOU CAN'T BELIEVE IN.

"SUPERBOOK" IS A

DOCUMENTARY ON REAL SUPER

HEROS.

JESUS IS A REAL SUPER

HERO.

JOSEPH IS A SUPER HERO.

EVERY STORY IS ABOUT A

SUPER HERO THAT HAS

CHANGED THE WORLD.

IT WAS LIKE THAT THE

HEROS THAT THEY HAD KIND

OF WORSHIPPED BEFORE

STARTED TO BECOME THE

HEROS OF THE BIBLE.

AND JESUS BEING THE BIG

ONE.

Reporter: THEIR

OLDEST SON, JUDGE, AGREES.

I LIKE REVELATIONS

BECAUSE JESUS FIGHTED THIS

BIG SNAKE.

Reporter: "SUPERBOOK"

IS MORE THAN JUST

ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE

BOYS.

WITH EVERY NEW EPISODE,

THEY LEARN MORE ABOUT THE

BIBLE.

I THINK FOR A CHILD, IT

MAKES ALL OF THE

DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD,

TO SEE IT LIVED OUT, AND

FOR THEM TO BE ABLE TO

RELATE.

BECAUSE I CAN READ THEM

STORIES ALL OF THE TIME,

BUT TO HAVE IT REENACTED

FOR CHILDREN IS HUGE.

I LIKE IT BECAUSE IT

TEACHES ABOUT JESUS.

IT BRINGS THE WORD TO

LIFE FOR THE BOYS.

AND ONCE WE READ THE

SCRIPTURES, IT HELPS THEM

TO KIND OF GET A PICTURE

OF WHAT WE JUST READ.

Reporter: CAR YEAR CARY AND

NEIL ESPECIALLY APPRECIATE

HOW "SUPERBOOK" REINFORCES

THE SAME CHRISTIAN VALUES

THEY'RE TEACHING.

IT HELPS ME BE A BIG

BOY, AND IT HELPS ME BE A

GOOD KID, SO MOM CAN TEACH

ME EVERYTHING ABOUT IT.

WHEN WE STARTED

WATCHING "SUPERBOOK" IN

THE HOME, IT IS LIKE THE

SPIRITUAL TEMPERATURE IN

OUR HOME JUST WENT UP, UP

THROUGH THE ROOF.

Reporter: WITH SUCH A

YOUNG FAMILY, NEIL AND

CARY PLAN ON KEEPING

"SUPERBOOK" AROUND FOR A

LONG TIME.

THEY KNOW THAT WHAT THEIR

SONS LEARN TODAY IS

PREPARING THEM FOR THE

FUTURE.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT

"SUPERBOOK" IS IT REALLY

TEACHES BOYS WHERE REAL

POWER COMES FROM, HOW TO

REALLY BE MEN OF GOD.

THE VALUES THAT

"SUPERBOOK" TEACHES MY

CHILDREN IS HOW TO TAKE

BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES AND

APPLY THEM TO REAL-LIFE

SITUATIONS, TO SHOW

COMPASSION, TO SHOW

FORGIVENESS, TO SHOW LOVE.

IT TEACHES THEM HOW TO BE

MORE LIKE JESUS, AND

THAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT

THING.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR

MAKING "SUPERBOOK."

Gordon: AND THANK

YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

MAKING "SUPERBOOK."

WE WANT TO TAKE THE

STORIES OF THE BIBLE TO

SPOKEN ALOUD THAT REALLY

BRINGS IT TO LIFE.

NOW YOU CAN LISTEN TO THE

GOSPEL OF JOHN AS READ BY

PAT ROBERTSON.

HERE IS A SAMPLE FROM THIS

POWERFUL, NEW C.D.

Announcer: AN EXCERPT

FROM THE GOSPEL OF JOHN.

Pat: JESUS WENT ON TO

SAY: "I AM THE VINE.

YOU ARE THE BRANCHES.

IF YOU REMAIN IN ME, AND I

IN YOU, YOU WILL BEAR MUCH

FRUIT.

IF YOU REMAIN IN ME, AND

MY WORDS REMAIN IN YOU,

ASK WHATEVER YOU WISH AND

IT WILL BE DONE FOR YOU."

Announcer: THE GOSPEL

OF JOHN, AVAILABLE NOW.

Wendy: I LOVE THE

GOSPEL OF JOHN BECAUSE

MORE THAN ANY OTHER

GOSPEL, YOU REALLY GET TO

MEET JESUS.

YOU GET TO SEE WHO HE IS,

HEAR HIS WORDS.

AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY, YOU

FIND OUT HOW MUCH HE LOVES

YOU AND ME.

THIS IS OUR GIFT FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW, WHEN YOU CALL

THIS IS A POWERFUL,

POWERFUL BOOK OF THE

BIBLE.

WE MAKE IT CONVENIENT FOR

YOU TO LISTEN TO IT AND

HEAR THE WORD OF GOD.

GIVE US A CALL RIGHT NOW.

WE'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM

YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: THANKS, WENDY.

> I WANT YOU TO MEET

SAMIRA, AND SHE IS ALWAYS

ON HER FEET AND DANCING

FOR JOY.

BUT WHEN WE FIRST MET HER,

SHE COULD BARELY WALK AND

HER CONDITION JUST BROKE

HER MOTHER'S HEART.

SAMIRA'S EYES SPARKLE WHEN

SHE SMILES.

SHE SEEMS TO HAVE NO CARES

IN THE WORLD.

THE TRUTH IS SAMIRA WAS

BORN WITH TWO CLUBBED

FEET.

A SERIOUS DISABILITY THAT

CAUSES SEVERE PAIN AND

LIMITS HER MOVEMENT.

HER MOTHER, NORA, SUFFERS,

TOO.

I FEEL PAIN BECAUSE SHE

IS MY CHILD.

I CAN'T LOOK AT HER

WITHOUT CRYING.

BUT I CAN'T DO ANYTHING

FOR HER.

I CAN PRAY FOR THE SURGERY

THAT WOULD ALLOW HER TO

WALK AND RUN AND PLAY LIKE

OTHER CHILDREN.

Terry: SAMIRA RARELY

CRIES, BUT THIS DAY HER

TEARS FALL WHEN SHE SEES

HER MOTHER CRY.

I HAVE ONE DREAM: FOR

SAMIRA TO BE HEALTHY AND

WALK NORMALLY.

Terry: YET NORA KNOWS

HER DREAM IS UNLIKELY TO

COME TRUE.

THIS POOR FAMILY CAN

BARELY AFFORD FOOD.

AND LIKE MOST PEOPLE IN

THIS VILLAGE, NORA AND HER

HUSBAND ARE UNEDUCATED AND

THEIR JOB OPPORTUNITIES

ARE LIMITED.

MY HUSBAND IS HIRED BY

PEOPLE TO DO JOBS LIKE

CUTTING GRASS, AND IS ONLY

PAID $2 TO $4 A DAY.

Terry: THAT'S WHY

NORA WAS OVERJOYED WHEN

CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

OPENED A SCHOOL NEARBY.

SHESHE ENROLLED SAMIRA RIGHT

AWAY.

BUT WE KNEW SHE NEEDED

SURGERY, THAT HER PARENTS

COULD NEVER AFFORD.

IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE WE

LOCATED A PHYSICIAN AND

PAID THE FULL COSTS OF

SAMIRA'S SURGERY.

11 MONTHS LATER, WHEN HER

CASTS WERE REMOVED, HER

LEGS AND FEET WERE NORMAL.

MY CHILD CAN DO

EVERYTHING.

WHAT ELSE COULD I EVER

WANT?

THANK YOU.

IT HAS ALL BEEN BECAUSE OF

YOU.

I CAN WALK AND JUMP.

I CAN PLAY WITH OTHER

CHILDREN.

I EVEN TAKE DANCING

LESSONS AT MY SCHOOL.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME

STRAIGHT LEGS.

Terry: HOW COULD YOU

NOT WANT TO BE A PART OF

THAT LITTLE GIRL'S

MIRACLE?

IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, YOU WERE A PART OF

IT.

AND THAT KIND OF WORK IS

GOING ON EVERY DAY, EVEN

AS WE'RE SPEAKING NOW,

IT'S HAPPENING ALL ACROSS

AMERICA AND ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

DON'T MISS THE OPPORTUNITY

TO BE A PART OF THAT.

IT GIVES YOU SUCH A SENSE

OF SATISFACTION AND

PURPOSE IN YOUR LIFE.

AND ALL YOU NEED TO DO TO

BE A PART OF IT IS JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, MAKES YOU A "700

CLUB" MEMBER.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A "700

CLUB" MEMBER, GO UP TO THE

NEXT CLUB LEVEL.

THAT MEANS IF YOU'RE A

GENERAL MEMBER, GO UP TO

"THE 700 CLUB" GOLD.

THAT'S $40.

MAYBE YOU'RE AT THE GOLD

LEVEL.

WELL, GO UP TO THE

THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL.

THAT'S $84 A MONTH.

OR THE 2500 CLUB AT $209 A

MONTH.

AND OUR FOUNDERS JOIN US

AT $417 A MONTH.

AND SOME OF YOU CAN JOIN

THE CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE.

JUST GO TO YOUR PHONE AND

SAY, I WANT TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

YOU'LL BE RESPONDING TO

GOD'S ADMONITION TO GIVE,

AND YOU'RE GOING TO

RECEIVE THE GOSPEL OF

JOHN, WHICH IS PRETTY

WONDERFUL.

SO YOU CALL NOW.

GORDON?

Gordon: WELL, MARCUS

IS A FATHER OF THREE.

AND HE IS ALSO A MARINE

WHO IS FACING A LONG

DEPLOYMENT.

HE WANTED HIS WIFE AND

CHILDREN TO BE NEAR FAMILY

WHILE HE WAS AWAY, SO THEY

WERE ABOUT TO GO INTO DEBT

TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

INSTEAD, THIS MILITARY

COUPLE RECEIVED A HAND-UP

FROM CBN'S "HELPING THE

HOMEFRONT."

Reporter: BEHIND

EVERY FRONTLINE MARINE

MILITARY OPERATION, STANDS

A SUPPORT GROUP WITH

HUNDREDS OF MARINES

WORKING HARD TO ENSURE THE

MISSION IS A SUCCESS.

ONE SUPPORT TEAM INCLUDES

FLIGHT EQUIPMENT MECHANIC

MARCUS.

EVERYTHING THAT WE DO

IS ESSENTIAL TO GETTING

THE MISSION DONE.

THE TROOPS CAN'T GET ON

GROUND WITHOUT THE PLANES

WORKING.

THE PLANES CAN'T WORK

WITHOUT THE MECHANICS TO

FIX THE PLANES.

Reporter: WHEN HE IS

AWAY, MARCUS RELIES ON HIS

WIFE, OSHA, TO TAKE CARE

OF THEIR CHILDREN.

MY WIFE DOES AN

EXCELLENT JOB.

SHE IS MY BACKBONE IN SO

MANY WAYS.

Reporter: OSHA RELIES

ON HER STRENGTH IN GOD, TO

GIVE HER THE STRENGTH.

WITHOUT HIM, I WOULD

NOT BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH

OUR FIRST DEPLOYMENT.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

DECIDED TO MOVE OSHA AND

THE CHILDREN CLOSER TO

FAMILY.

THEY DECIDED TO GO INTO

DEBT TO DO IT THE.

>IT.

IT MAKES ME FEEL

COMFORTABLE TO KNOW THEY

HAVE UNCLES AND AUNTS AND

GRANDPARENTS RIGHT THERE,

INSTEAD OF SEVERAL MILES

AWAY.

Reporter: WHEN THEIR

PASTOR, CHRIS PHILIPS,

LEARNED ABOUT THEIR

DECISION TO TAKE OUT A

LOAN, HE CONTACTED CBN FOR

HELP.

PASTOR CHRIS TOLD THE

COUPLE THE GOOD NEWS.

WE WANT TO PAY FOR THE

U-HAUL RENTAL, TO GET YOU

LOADED UP AND GET YOU OUT

OF TOWN.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THAT SOUNDS AWESOME.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, WE

WANT TO MAKE SURE WE TAKE

OCCUR OF THE EXPENSES THAT

ARE RELATED TO THE TRAVEL,

SO THAT NOTHING WILL COME

OUT OF YOUR POCKET TO GET

YOU DOWN THERE.

IT'S A BLESSING.

A RELIEF.

I'M NOT DONE YET.

JUST BEFORE YOU DEPLOY, WE

WANT TO PAY THE EXPENSES

TO FLY YOU FROM

JACKSONVILLE TO VALDOSTA,

SO THAT...YOU'LL BE ABLE

TO SEE YOUR FAMILY ONE

LAST TIME BEFORE YOU ARE

SEPARATED FOR MONTHS.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Reporter: OSHA CAN

NOW GET THROUGH THE

DEPLOYMENT WITHOUT

WORRYING ABOUT DEBT.

I AM SO GRATEFUL TO CBN

AND THIS PROGRAM, FOR

SHOWING THE MILITARY THEY

DO SUPPORT THEM AND YOU

UNDERSTAND AND YOU CAN

HELP THEM OUT AS WELL.

IT JUST MEANS SO MUCH.

Gordon: WE WANT TO

SUPPORT OUR FAMILIES WHO

ARE SERVING.

SO MANY SERVICE MEMBERS,

THEY'VE BEEN ON MULTIPLE

DEPLOYMENTS.

AND THEIR FAMILIES ARE

SERVING, TOO.

AND WE WANT TO RECOGNIZE

THAT.

WE WANT TO BE THERE AND BE

A HELP TO THEM.

YOU'RE A PART OF IT WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER,

WE'RE CLOSING IN ON THE

FINAL SECONDS.

JUST TWO SECONDS LEFT IN

THIS $214,000 CHALLENGE.

IT HAS BEEN A MARVELOUS

DAY.

WE HAD THIS INCREDIBLE

CHALLENGE, AND AGAINST

THAT YOU GAVE $222,000.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM PROVERBS:

"HE WHO HAS MERCY ON THE

POOR, HAPPY IS HE."

AND FOR ALL OF YOU THAT

CALL AND GAVE TODAY, YOU

HAD MERCY ON THE POOR, AND

MAY YOU BE HAPPY TODAY.

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN NEXT

WEEK.
