*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

ON HIS THIRD DAY IN

OFFICE, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

MOVING AHEAD WITH ONE OF

HIS BEST-KNOWN CAMPAIGN

PROMISES: BUILDING A WALL

ON THE BORDER WITH MEXICO.

Terry: THE PRESIDENT

ALSO SAYS HE'LL MAKE

ANOTHER ANNOUNCEMENT SOON,

HIS CHOICE FOR A NEW

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE.

REPORTER HEATHER SELLS HAS

THAT STORY.

Heather: THE

PRESIDENT TWEETED THE NEWS

ON HIS PERSONAL TWITTER

ACCOUNT, SAYING, WE WILL

BUILD THE WALL.

THE PLAN, A MEASURE TO

JUMP-START CONSTRUCTION.

HE IS ALSO EXPECTED TO

TAKE ANOTHER DECISIVE

ACTION ON IMMIGRATION THIS

WEEK, LIKE A FOUR-MONTH

HALT ON ALL REFUGEE

ADMISSIONS, AND A SHORTER

BAN ON PEOPLE COMING FROM

MUSLIM-MAJORITY COUNTRIES.

THE NEWS COMES AS THE

ADMINISTRATION CONTINUES

TO DEFEND THE PRESIDENT'S

BELIEF THAT MILLIONS OF

ILLEGAL VOTES WERE CAST IN

NOVEMBER.

I THINK HE STATED HIS

CONCERNS OF VOTER FRAUD

AND PEOPLE VOTING

ILLEGALLY DURING THE

CAMPAIGN, AND HE CONTINUES

TO MAINTAIN THAT BELIEF

BASED ON STUDIES AND

EVIDENCE PEOPLE HAVE

PRESENTED TO HIM.

Heather: AND THE

PRESIDENT IS ALSO MOVING

AHEAD ON THE ECONOMY.

ON TUESDAY, HE MET WITH

THE HEADS OF THE BIG THREE

U.S. CAR-MAKERS AND OTHER

AUTOMOBILE MAKERS,

PROMISING TO STREAMLINE

THE ENVIRONMENTAL PRO PROCESS.

WE'RE BRINGING

BUSINESSES BACK TO THE

UNITED STATES BIG LEAGUE,

AND WE'RE REDUCING TAXES

AND UNNECESSARY

LEGISLATION.

Heather: TRUMP SIGNED

EXECUTIVE ORDERS TO MOVE

FORWARD WITH THE

CONSTRUCTION OF THE

KEYSTONE X.L. PIPELINE AND

DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE.

AND HE SAYS HE'LL SOON

ANNOUNCE PERHAPS HIS MOST

IMPORTANT NOMINEE: HIS

CHOICE FOR A NEW JUSTICE

O OON THE SUPREME COURT TO

REPLACE ANTONIN SCALIA.

WE HAVE OUTSTANDING

CANDIDATES, AND WE WILL

PICK A TRULY GREAT SUPREME

COURT JOUST.

Heather: THE THREE

JUDGES ARE ALL STRONG

CONSERVATIVES.

THE TOP CONTENDER RIGHT

NOW NEIL GORSUCH,

INTERPRETING THE

CONSTITUTION AND LAWS

BASED ON THEIR ORIGINAL

MEANING.

ALSO ON THE SHORT LIST,

WILLIAM PRYOR, WHO ONCE

CALLED ROE VS. WADE AN

ABOMINATION.

AND THOMAS HARDIMAN, KNOWN

FOR HIS SUPPORT OF GUN

RIGHTS.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE'LL

ANNOUNCE HIS DECISION NEXT

THURSDAY.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: IN OTHER

TRUMP NEWS, THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES PASSED A

STRONG PRO-LIFE BILL.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN

NEWSROOM.

George: THAT'S RIGHT,

GORDON.

THE HOUSE HAS PASSED

LEGISLATION TO BAN THE USE

OF FEDERAL TAXPAYER MONEY

FOR NEARLY ALL ABORTIONS.

THE MEASURE WOULDLIES WOULD ALSO

BLOCK TAX CREDITS FOR SOME

WHO ARE BUYING ABORTION

UNDER OBAMACARE.

CONGRESS PASSED A SIMILAR

BILL IN 2015, BUT

PRESIDENT OBAMA THREAT END

TTHREATENEDTO VETO THE BILL.

THE BILLS NEEDS TO GO

THROUGH THE SENATE FIRST,

WHERE IT COULD FACE

CONSIDERABLE OPPOSITION

FROM DEMOCRATS.

> THE SENATORS VOTED

96-4 TO APPROVE NIKKI

HALEY.

SHE SAID RUSSIA CANNOT BE

TRUSTED RIGHT NOW, AND

SUPPORTS MOVING THE U.S.

EMBASSY IN ISRAEL FROM TEL

AVIV TO JERUSALEM.

STAYING ON ISRAEL, ISRAEL

HAS ANNOUNCED PLANS, BY

THE WAY, TO BUILD 2500

MORE SETTLEMENT HOMES IN

THE WEST BANK.

THE MOVE COMES DESPITE

OPPOSITION FROM

PRO-PALESTINIAN FORCES WHO

CONSIDER THE SETTLEMENTS

ILLEGAL.

THEY SAY IT DESTROYS PLANS

FOR A TWO-STATE SOLUTION

THAT WOULD CREATE

EVENTUALLY A PALESTINIAN

STATE.

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU WROTE IN A

Facebook POST ON TUESDAY

THAT ISRAEL WILL, QUOTE,

"CONTINUE TO BUILD MORE

SETTLEMENTS."

GORDON, RIGHT BACK TO YOU.

Gordon: THIS IS ALL

PART OF A RESPONSE TO THE

U.N. VOTE SAYING IT WAS

BLATENTLY ILLEGAL TO HAVE

SETTLEMENTS, AND BLATENTLY

ILLEGAL FOR THERE TO BE

ANY ISRAELI OCCUPATION OF

EAST JERUSALEM, WHICH IS

LIKE THROWING A RED FLAG

UP IN FRONT OF BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU.

AND HE SAYS, I'LL SHOW

YOU.

THIS IS ALL BACK IN THE

FACE OF THE U.N.

RESOLUTION.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS GOING TO

SUPPORT IT.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS GOING TO

MOVE THE U.S. EMBASSY FROM

TEL AVIV TO JERUSALEM.

AND ONCE JERUSALEM BECOMES

RECOGNIZED AS THE

UNDIVIDED CAPITAL OF

ISRAEL, WATCH OUT.

AT THAT POINT IN TIME WILL

THERE EVER BE PEACE IN THE

MIDDLE EAST?

> WE'LL BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: THE

DRAKEFORD'S OWED THOUSANDS

OF DOLLARS, AND THEY WENT

EVEN DEEPER IN DEBT TO PAY

THE BILLS.

WELL, THAT CYCLE OF

SPENDING WENT ON FOR YEARS

UNTIL THEY DECIDED TO PUT

GOD TO THE TEST.

Reporter: VIVIENNE

AND JAMES WORKED HARD TO

MAKE THEIR TRUCKING

COMPANY A SUCCESS.

THEY ALSO TRUSTED IN A

SIMPLE BIBLICAL PRINCIPLE.

HE SHOWED UP AND HE

SHOWED ME.

IT TAUGHT ME TO GIVE AND

STAY FAITHFUL TO GOD.

Reporter: TWO YEARS

AFTER THEY MARRIED, BOTH

WERE LAID OFF FROM THEIR

JOBS AT A LOCAL INDUSTRIAL

PLANT.

WE WAS DEVASTATED.

WE HAD JUST GOT MARRIED,

HAD ACQUIRED A HOME AND

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: THEY BOTH

DREW UNEMPLOYMENT AND

BEGAN THE DIFFICULT SEARCH

FOR JOBS.

WE WERE RUBBING TWO

NICKELS TOGETHER.

MONEY WASN'T COMING IN.

BILLS WAS STACKING UP.

GET ONE CREDIT CARD AND

PAY ANOTHER, AND STILL

GETTING BEHIND.

WE WAS DEPRESSED A LOT.

Reporter: JAMES TOOK

EVERY ODD JOB HE COULD

FIND.

BUT AFTER THREE YEARS,

THEY WERE STILL

UNEMPLOYED.

THE FINANCIAL STRESS DROVE

VIVIENNE BACK TO THE

CHRISTIAN FAITH OF HER

CHILDHOOD.

SHE BEGAN TO ATTEND CHURCH

AND LEARNED ABOUT TITHING.

I JUST TOLD HIM, LORD,

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TITHE

BECAUSE WE'RE IN SO MUCH

DEBT.

I SAID, IF YOU CAN BRING

US OUT OF THIS DEBT, I

PROMISE YOU I WILL TITHE.

Reporter: IT WAS LONG

BEFORE JAMES COMMITTED HIS

LIFE TO THE LORD AND

JOINED VIVIENNE IN A

COMMITMENT TO TITHE.

I GAVE 10% TO MY CHURCH

AND PROVIDED FOR OTHER

PEOPLE, EVEN THOUGH I

DIDN'T HAVE.

Reporter: WITHIN A

FEW MONTHS, JAMES AND

VIVIENNE BOTH LANDED

FULL-TIME JOBS.

IT CAME BACK.

I GOT ME A GOOD JOB.

IT PROVIDED INCOME.

I GOT OFF UNEMPLOYMENT.

Reporter: AROUND THE

SAME TIME, VIVIENNE

DISCOVERED "700 CLUB."

SHE MOVED FROM BEING A FAN

TO A FINANCIAL PARTNER

WHEN HURRICANE HUGO HIT

CHARLESTON.

AND I SAW "OPERATION

BLESSING" IN CHARLESTON.

I SAID, LOOK, LOOK AT "THE

700 CLUB."

THIS IS MINISTRY AT ITS

FULLEST ON THE GROUND.

YOU'RE NOT JUST TALKING

THE TALK ON A TELEVISION

PROGRAM.

YOU KNOW, I GAVE TO YOU,

AND NOW YOU ARE IN MY

STATE AND YOU'RE HELPING

US.

Reporter: SOON

AFTERWARDS, THE COUPLE

TOOK ADVANTAGE OF A

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY TO

START A TRUCKING COMPANY.

THEY PLEDGED TO TITHE ON

EVERY PENNY THEY MADE.

FRIENDS SAID, YOU WILL

NEVER MAKE IT.

I SAID WITH GOD'S HELP,

WE'LL MAKE IT.

Reporter: AFTER

SEVERAL DIFFICULT MONTHS,

THE COMPANY BEGAN SHOWING

A PROFIT.

THE FIRST THING VIVIENNE

DID WAS INCREASE THEIR

PLEDGE TO "THE 700 CLUB."

WHEN I SAW THAT FIRST

CHECK, I KNEW I NEEDED TO

BE FAITHFUL TO GOD AND MY

LOCAL CHURCH AND "THE 700

CLUB."

Reporter: OVER THE

NEXT SEVERAL YEARS, THE

COMPANY GREW RAPIDLY.

10 YEARS LATER, WHEN THEY

WANTED TO GET OUT OF

BUSINESS, THEIR PROFIT

DEPENDED ON THE SALE OF

THEIR LAST BIG RIG.

WE WERE ABLE TO SELL

THAT TRUCK AND MADE A GOOD

PROFIT.

Reporter: THAT SALE

DOUBLED THEIR PROFITS AND

GUARANTEED THEM A

COMFORTABLE RETIREMENT,

HELPED PAY OFF THEIR

MORTGAGE, AND ALLOWED

JAMES TO GET BACK IN THE

DRIVER'S SEAT.

THE COUPLE SAYS IT WAS

THEIR WILLINGNESS TO GIVE

FREELY THAT PUT THEM ON

THE ROAD TO FINANCIAL

SUCCESS.

BELIEVE IN GOD, AND IT

WILL HAPPEN, ABSOLUTELY.

WHEN PEOPLE ARE IN

DESPERATE TIMES, THEY HOLD

ON AND HOLD TITLE.

HOLD TITLE.

BUT GOD HAS TAUGHT ME OVER

THE YEARS, WHAT IS IN YOUR

HAND CANNOT BRING YOU OUT

OF DEBT, CANNOT HELP YOU

GET TO THAT NEXT SEASON.

JUST GIVE AND TRUST THE

GIVER.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE FROM PSALM 37:

"TRUST IN THE LORD AND DO

GOOD, AND THEN YOU WILL

LIVE FAITHFULLY IN THE

HAND AND PROSPER.

TAKE DELIGHT IN THE LORD,

AND HE WILL GIVE YOU YOUR

HEART'S DESIRE."

FOR VIVIENNE AND JAMES,

THEY LIVED THAT OUT.

THEY TRUSTED HIM, AND THEY

TRUSTED HIM WITH THEIR

FINANCES.

> WELL, A LITTLE BIT

GOES A LONG WAY.

THAT WAS A HARD WAY FOR

TERRY TO LEARN.

SHE NICKELED AND DIMED HER

WAY INTO DEEP DEBT.

AND HERE IS HOW A SMALL

CHANGE GOT HER BACK IN THE

BLACK.

Reporter: TERRY

CASGASA COULDN'T

UNDERSTAND WHY SHE WAS

ALWAYS BEHIND ON HER

BILLS, ESPECIALLY WORKING

TWO JOBS.

I WAS ALWAYS TROUBLED

AND BURDENED AND EXTREMELY

STRESSED, BECAUSE I WOULD

BE AFRAID, WILL HAVE I

ENOUGH MONEY FOR

GROCERIES?

Reporter: TERRY WENT

TO A FINANCIAL COUNSELLOR

TO GET HELP.

AND IT WAS THERE SHE

REALIZED HER PROBLEM.

I WAS SPENDING MONEY

AND NOT REALIZING HOW MUCH

I WAS SPENDING.

$2 OR $3 A DAY SPENT ON A

CUP OF COFFEE, BUT THAT

ADDS UP ON A DAILY BASIS.

AND SEEING MY FINANCES IN

FRONT OF ME ON A SPREAD

SHEET, AND BEING TOLD YOU

ACTUALLY DO MAKE ENOUGH

MONEY.

Reporter: THEY TAUGHT

TERRY HOW TO MANAGE HER

FINANCES USING BIBLICAL

PRINCIPLES.

THAT MEANT GOING ON A

BUDGET AND TITHING OFF HER

INCOME.

SOMETHING SHE THOUGHT SHE

COULDN'T DO.

I HEARD ABOUT IT, BUT I

THOUGHT THE SAME THING, I

CAN'T AFFORD TO DO IT.

I WAS ALWAYS SO AFRAID.

Reporter: TERRY

FOLLOWED THEIR ADVICE,

STICKING TO HER BUDGET AND

TITHING.

WHEN SHE MADE THE

ADJUSTMENT TO TITHING OFF

BOTH PAYCHECKS, SHE

NOTICED A CHANGE WITH HER

PART-TIME JOB, SELLING

FURNITURE.

I WAS MAKING ABOUT $200

TO $400 A PAYCHECK.

AND ONCE THE SHIFT

STARTED, IT WAS $1,000,

$1100 IN ONE PAYCHECK.

AND THAT'S ONE DAY A WEEK.

TO SEE THAT COME IN AND TO

REALIZE, OH, MY GOSH, THE

LORD REALLY HAS BEEN MY

SOURCE.

HE HAS SEEN I'VE BEEN

OBEDIENT.

IT JUST BLEW ME AWAY.

Reporter: THEN TERRY

SAID GOD ASKED HER TO QUIT

HER PART-TIME JOB.

AND NOW SHE IS ENJOYING

HER FULL-TIME JOB.

AND SHE SAYS HER FINANCES

HAVEN'T SKIPPED A BEAT.

EVEN AFTER I PA MAKE MY

TITHES AND PAY MY BILLS, I

STILL HAVE MONEY LEFT IN

MY ACCOUNT.

Reporter: AND NOW SHE

CAN SUPPORT MINISTRIES SHE

LOVES, LIKE CBN AND

"ORPHANS' PROMISE."

I LOVE ANYTHING THAT

HAS TO DO WITH THE LITTLE

ONES, AND THEM FINDING

GOOD HOMES.

WATCHING THE STORIES ABOUT

THEM TUGS AT YOUR HEART.

I FEEL LIKE I REALLY HAVE

TO GIVE TO THAT BECAUSE I

LOVE CHILDREN.

SO MANY PEOPLE SAY I CAN'T

AFFORD IT.

WELL, YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT

TO.

BECAUSE OUR MONEY IS NOT

OURS.

IT ALL BELONGS TO THE

LORD.

HE WANTS TO SEE THAT WE

TRUST IN HIM ENOUGH AND

BELIEVE IN HIM ENOUGH.

Gordon: "IF YOU WILL

ONLY OBEY ME AND LET ME

HELP YOU, THEN YOU WILL

HAVE PLENTY."

AND TERRY WALKED IT OUT.

SHE PUT THESE PRINCIPLES

INTO PRACTICE, AND YOU SEE

THE RESULT.

THE SAME THING WILL HAPPEN

TO YOU IF YOU FOLLOW THE

SAME PRINCIPLE.

GOD WATCHES OVER HIS WORD

TO PERFORM IT.

> NOW, I'VE GOT SOME

GREAT NEWS FOR YOU.

SOME CBN PARTNERS, JUST

LIKE TERRY, FROM MICHIGAN,

WANT TO CHALLENGE YOU TO

GIVE.

THEY'LL MATCH YOUR GIVING

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR $90,000

UNTIL THE END OF THE HOUR.

SO LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS.

WE ASK FOR THE INCREASE

THAT CAN ONLY COME FROM

YOU, 30, 60, 100-FOLD.

BLESS YOUR PEOPLE TODAY,

LORD GOD.

OPEN THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN

AND POUR OUT A BLESSING

THEY CANNOT CONTAIN, FOR

WE ASK IT IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

$90,000 IS THE CHALLENGE.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

O DO?

WELL, WE'RE ASKING YOU TO

GO TO THE PHONE AND CALL

US AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

CENTS A DAY.

SOME CAN JOIN AT "700

CLUB" GOLD, WHICH IS $40.

THEN WE HAVE THE THOUSAND

CLUB, WHICH BREAKS OUT TO

$84 A MONTH.

AT WHATEVER LEVEL, NOW IS

THE TIME TO DO IT.

CALL US RIGHT NOW:

1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, WHEN YOU

DO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB," WE

WANT TO SAY THANK YOU WITH

SOMETHING THAT WE THINK

WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON'S

BEST-SELLING SERIES "THE

SECRET KINGDOM" AND GORDON

ROBERTSON'S TEACHING ON

"THE LAW OF EXPECTATION."

AND NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME

EVER, WE'RE OFFERING THEM

ALL TOGETHER ON ONE D.V.D.

TAKE A LOOK.

Gordon: YEARS AGO, MY

FATHER HAD A GREAT

REVELATION: IF JESUS WAS

GOD, THEN EVERYTHING HE

SAID WAS A LAW OF THE

UNIVERSE.

Pat: AND IT APPLIES

TO EVERYBODY.

IT APPLIES TO CHRISTIANS.

IT APPLIES TO

NON-CHRISTIANS.

Gordon: THESE

SPIRITUAL LAWS WERE THE

FOUNDATION OF HIS

BEST-SELLING BOOK "THE

SECRET KINGDOM."

Announcer: IN PAT

ROBERTSON'S "THE SECRET

KINGDOM", YOU'LL LEARN HOW

GOD'S KINGDOM WORKS, THE

PRINCIPLES THAT BUILD

GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT.

Gordon: WE HAVE

COMPILED THOSE TEACHINGS

ON THIS D.V.D. FOR YOU, AS

WELL AS MY TEACHING CALLED

"THE LAW OF EXPECTATION."

WHICH WAS INSPIRED BY THE

LAWS OF "THE SECRET

KINGDOM."

WHAT YOU EXPECT THE FUTURE

TO BE, YOU CAN CAUSE IT TO

BE JUST MATERIAL B MERELY BY THE FACT

THAT YOU BELIEVE IT.

Terry: THERE ARE

PRINCIPLES THAT GOD HAS

INSTILLED INTO THE WORLD

THAT WE LIVE IN, AND WHEN

YOU KNOW AND UNDERSTAND

WHAT THOSE ARE, THEY OPEN

THE DOOR TO ALL KINDS OF

PEACE AND HOPE AND

PROSPERITY.

WE WANT YOU TO KNOW ALL OF

THAT.

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

WHAT A GREAT DAY TO DO IT.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE:

1-800-700-7000.

CALL NOW.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," AND WE

WILL GET "THE SECRET

KINGDOM" OUT TO YOU RIGHT

AWAY.

GORDON?

Gordon: TODAY, MORE

THAN HALF OF AMERICANS ARE

LIVING PAYCHECK TO

PAYCHECK, WITH LITTLE OR

NO SAVINGS.

GARY AND DEBRA LIVED THAT

WAY FOR YEARS UNTIL THEY

MADE A DECISION THAT

TRIPLED THEIR INCOME.

OUR FINANCES WERE JUST

ENOUGH TO GET US TO THE

END OF THE MONTH.

THERE WASN'T A WHOLE LOT

OF MONEY TO PUT INTO

SAVINGS.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, I'M

NOT SURE THERE WAS ANY

MONEY TO PUT IN THE

SAVINGS.

Reporter: GARY AND

DEBRA WERE LIVING PAYCHECK

TO PAYCHECK, UNTIL ONE

SUNDAY MORNING WHEN THEY

HEARD THREE SEPARATE

MESSAGES ABOUT ONE TOPIC:

GIVING.

IT WAS ONE OF THOSE

THINGS LIKE, OKAY, GOD,

YOU TOLD ME ONCE, YOU TOLD

ME TWICE, YOU TOLD ME

THREE TIMES.

I THINK I BETTER BE

LISTENING.

THERE WAS NO ROOM IN

BLACK AND WHITE, IN THE

MATH, TO GIVE.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

DECIDED TO PRAY ABOUT IT

AND GIVE.

AND THEN SOMETHING

HAPPENED.

WE HAD MONEY LEFT OVER.

I WAS, LIKE, I GET IT GOD,

YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE CARE

OF IT.

WE WENT TO LIVING OFF 90%,

AND GOT STRETCHED THAT 90%

TO ALLOW US TO START

SAVING.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

SAYS THAT THE LISTEN THEY

LEARNED THEM PREPARED THEM

FOR THEIR NEXT ADVENTURE,

WHEN THEY MOVED ACROSS THE

STATE TO START A HEALTH

CLUB.

GOD LAID ON MY HEART TO

OPEN A BUSINESS.

WE LOADED MY YOUNG FAMILY

UP AND CAME TO WEST TEXAS.

WE DIDN'T HAVE A PLACE

TO LIVE.

WE DIDN'T HAVE JOBS.

WE JUST PICKED UP AND

MOVED.

AND THAT WAS SCARY.

Reporter: THEY SOON

DISCOVERED THAT DEBRA WAS

PREGNANT, BUT THEY HAD NO

INSURANCE.

AND THEIR NEW BUSINESS

NEVER TOOK OFF.

WE HAD TO USE OUR

CREDIT CARDS FOR MEDICAL

BILLS.

I BEGAN SUBSTITUTE

TEACHING, AND DEBRA WAS

SELLING HEALTH PLANS, AND

THAT WAS AN INCOME FOR US.

AND THEN SHE GOT A JOB AT

GOLD'S GYM.

WE KNEW GOD WOULD

PROVIDE FOR US.

IT STARTED WHEN WE STARTED

TITHING.

IT ALL GOES BACK TO THAT

LEAP OF FAITH.

WE WOULD BE AT THE END

OF THE MONTH AND THERE

WOULD BE NOTHING, AND ALL

OF A SUDDEN SOMEBODY WOULD

LITERALLY MAIL US A CHECK.

THEY OWED SOME MONEY FOR

HEALTH SUPPLEMENTS OR FOR

DEBRA'S TRAINING, AND WE

WOULD LOOK AT EACH OTHER

AND SAY, THANK YOU, GOD.

IT WAS A GOD THING.

Reporter: SOON GARY

WAS OFFERED A JOB AS A

HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL.

IN 2009, THEY DECIDED TO

BECOME CBN PARTNERS, AND

DEBRA NOTICED AN IMMEDIATE

CHANGE IN HER BUSINESS.

THE MORE I GAVE TO CBN,

THE MORE COSTUMERS JUST

CAME KNOCKING ON MY DOOR.

AND I WAS NOT ADVERTISING,

SO I KNEW IT WAS GOD.

THAT CONFIRMED, OKAY, YOU

WANT ME TO GIVE MY MONEY

TO CBN.

Reporter: BUSINESS

GOT EVEN BETTER A FEW

MONTHS LATER, WHEN DEBRA

WAS OFFERED A JOB TEACHING

SENIOR FITNESS CLASSES.

IT DOUBLED AND TRIPLED

BY THE END OF THE YEAR.

Reporter: GARY ALSO

GOT A RAISE AT HIS JOB,

AND THE EXTRA INCOME

ALLOWED THEM TO PAY OFF

THEIR DEBT.

WE'RE DOWN TO OUR HOUSE

PAYMENT.

THIS WILL BE PAID OFF IN,

LIKE, FOUR YEARS.

AND WE'VE GOT ONE CAR

PAYMENT.

SO WE'RE GETTING CLOSE.

Reporter: GARY AND

DEBRA WANTS OTHERS TO KNOW

THAT GIVING HAS CHANGED

MORE THAN JUST THEIR

FINANCES.

IT IS A LEAP OF FAITH,

BUT IT IS A WONDERFUL LEAP

OF FAITH.

THE BLESSINGS THATED GOD

HAS ARE JUST INCREDIBLE.

Gordon: A WONDERFUL

STORY.

HERE IS A WORD FOR YOU

FROM HEBREWS 11: "WITHOUT

FAITH, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO

PLEASE HIM.

FOR HE WHO COMES TO GOD

MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS

AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER

OF THOSE WHO DILIGENTLY

SEEK HIM."

AND HERE GARY AND DEBRA,

THEY'RE SAYING, WE DID THE

MATH AND THERE IS NO WAY

WE CAN TITHE 10%, THERE IS

JUST NO WAY.

BUT THEY TAKE A LEAP OF

FAITH.

AND YOU SAW THE RESULTS.

SUDDENLY THINGS START TO

CHANGE FOR THEM.

AND SOON THAT 90% BECAME

ENOUGH FOR THE EXPENSES.

AND THEN GOD LED THEM ON A

GREAT ADVENTURE, WHICH

THEY TOOK EVERY STEP BY

FAITH.

IF YOU DO THAT, IF YOU

LIVE THAT WAY, YOU SHOW

GOD THAT YOU TRUST HIM.

AND WHEN YOU DO THAT, YOU

PLEASE HIM BECAUSE GOD

LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER.

IF YOU WANT TO START A

LIFESTYLE OF DOING THIS, A

LIFETIME OF DOING IT, CALL

US.

THIS ISN'T SOME GET RICH

QUICK SCHEME.

THIS IS SOMETHING WHERE

YOU SAY, I WANT TO HONOR

GOD WITH MY FIRST FRUITS.

I WANT TO SHOW HIM I TRUST

HIM WITH MY FINANCES.

WHEN YOU DO THAT

REGULARLY, THAT'S WHEN THE

BLESSINGS COME.

THIS ISN'T A ONE-TIME

THING.

YOU HAVE TO SAY, I'M

COMMITTED TO DO IT.

AND I WANT TO DO IT.

I WANT TO SHOW HIM I TRUST

HIM.

CALL: 1-800-700-7000.

SAY, YES, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

SOME OF YOU CAN JOIN AT A

HIGHER LEVEL.

WE HAVE "THE 700 CLUB"

HOW ABOUT YOUR FINANCIAL

INVESTMENTS?

WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO GET

ALL OF THAT AND MORE IN

OUR LATEST D.V.D., "THE

SECRET KINGDOM" AND "THE

LAW OF EXPECTATION."

Announcer: THE

CHRISTIAN BROADCASTING

NETWORK PRESENTS "THE

SECRET KINGDOM" AND "THE

LAW OF EXPECTATION."

Pat: TAKE WHAT YOU

HAVE AND GIVE IT, AND THAT

STARTS SOMETHING COMING

BACK TO YOU.

IT IS THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

BUT IT GOES MUCH BEYOND

THAT.

IF YOU GIVE KINDNESS TO

SOMEBODY, YOU WILL GET

KINDNESS BACK.

IF YOU ARE MERCIFUL TO

SOMEBODY, YOU'LL GET

MERCIFUL BACK.

Wendy: I LOVE THAT,

YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.

IT IS IN THE BIBLE.

IT IS IN THE SECRET

KINGDOM.

YOU KNOW, GOD HAS SECRETS,

SECRETS HIDDEN IN HIS

WORD.

THE GOOD NEWS IS HE WANTS

TO REVEAL THEM TO YOU AND

ME BECAUSE HE LOVES US AND

HE WANTS TO SHARE THINGS

WITH US.

WE WANT TO SHARE THIS WITH

YOU, AND IT'S CALLED "THE

SECRET KINGDOM" AND "THE

LAW OF EXPECTATION."

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU

WHEN YOU GIVE US A CALL

RIGHT NOW AND JUST SAY,

YES, I WANT TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY.

THAT'S ALL IT TAKES.

$20 A MONTH IS ALL IT

TAKES TO BECOME A CBN

PARTNER.

THE NUMBER IS RIGHT THERE

ON YOUR SCREEN:

1-800-700-7000.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com.

NOW, IF YOU'RE ALREADY A

CBN PARTNER, I JUST WANT

TO SAY THANK YOU.

YOU'RE MAKING A HUGE

DIFFERENCE AROUND THE

WORLD.

BUT IT IS A BRAND NEW

YEAR.

I WOULD LIKE TO CHALLENGE

YOU TO GO TO YOUR PHONES

AND INCREASE.

LET'S GO UP TO THE GOLD

LEVEL, WHICH IS JUST $40 A

MONTH.

OUR THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL IS

$84 A MONTH, AND YOU'RE

GOING TO GET FIVE

D.V.D.s.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

$90,000 CHALLENGE.

AND THAT MEANS EVERY

DOLLAR THAT YOU PLEDGE

RIGHT NOW WILL BE MATCHED

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

THIS IS A GREAT TIME TO GO

TO YOUR PHONES AND WE NEED

YOUR HELP.

Terry: WHEN YOU

BECOME A CBN PARTNER,

YOU'RE LITERALLY HELPING

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD.

LIKE THIS LITTLE GIRL FROM

CHINA.

TODAY SHE IS A HAPPY,

ACTIVE CHILD, BUT NOT LONG

AGO SHE WAS SO WEAK SHE

COULD BARELY WALK.

FOR YEARS, WAN LIN ONLY

HAD TWO FRIENDS.

I PLAY WITH MY KITTEN

ALL OF THE TIME.

Terry: THE OTHER WAS

HER BIG BROTHER, HUANG HU.

HE WAS LIKE A BIG,

STRONG TREE TO ME.

Terry: WAN LIN WISHED

SHE HAD MORE FRIENDS, BUT

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A

SERIOUS HEART PROBLEM WHEN

SHE WAS ONE AND NEVER HAD

A NORMAL CHILDHOOD.

SHE WAS LIKE A CAGED

BIRD WHO TRIED TO FLY

FREELY, BUT SHE COULDN'T.

HER LIPS TURNED DARK A

LOT AND SHE GOT DIZZY.

SHE HAD HORRIBLE FEVERS.

I WAS SCARED THAT SHE

MIGHT DIE AT ANY TIME.

THE DOCTOR SAID SHE

NEEDED SURGERY, BUT WE

DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY.

Terry: SO MRS. WONG

WORKED HARD DOING ODD JOBS

TO MAKE ENDS MEET AND SAVE

UP TO FOR WAN LIN'S SURGERY.

HER BROTHER HELPED, TOO.

IT WAS MY WAY OF

SHOWING MY SISTER THAT I

LOVED HER.

DURING VACATION, I WORKED

FROM 9 a.m. TO

10 p.m., AND I GAVE MY

MOTHER ALL OF MY WAGES.

IF I COULD GET MY SISTER

SURGERY, IT WOULD ALL BE

WORTH IT.

Terry: BUT IT WOULD

BE YEARS BEFORE THE

HUANG'S COULD SAVE ENOUGH.

MEANWHILE, WAN LIN

STRUGGLED TO BREATHE AND

GOT PROGRESSIVELY WORSE.

ONE DAY MY WHOLE BODY

WAS IN PAIN.

I LOOKED IN THE MIRROR AND

THOUGHT, I'M NOT PRETTY AT

ALL.

Terry: SHORTLY AFTER,

WAN LIN ENDED UP IN THE

HOSPITAL.

HER HANDS TREMBLED AND

SHE LOOKED PALE, BUT I

JUST BELIEVED GOD WOULD

HAVE MERCY AND SAVE MY

SISTER.

Terry: THEN CBN HEARD

ABOUT WAN LIN, AND WE

HELPED SET UP AND PROVIDE

HER WITH SURGERY.

NOW I'M HAPPY.

I DON'T FEEL ANY PAIN

ANYMORE.

SO I CAN RIDE MY BIKE AND

PLAY WITH OTHER CHILDREN.

WAN LIN IS COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT, AND HER

LAUGHTER IS LIKE BIRDS

SINGING.

YOU GAVE US A HAND WHERE

WE NEEDED IT MOST.

IF EVERYONE SHOWED LOVE

LIKE THIS, THE WORLD WOULD

BE SUCH A BETTER PLACE.

WHEN I GROW UP, I HOPE

TO BE KIND AND LOVING,

JUST LIKE YOU.

Terry: SO MANY OF THE

CONDITIONS THAT PEOPLE

CONTEND WITH AROUND THE

WORLD ARE TREATABLE, EVEN

FIXABLE, BUT THEY JUST

DON'T HAVE THE MEANS TO DO

IT.

YOU, "700 CLUB" MEMBERS,

ALLOW US TO COME RIGHT

INTO THE MIDST OF THAT

NEED AND MAKE A

LIFE-CHANGING, LIFE-SAVING

DIFFERENCE.

WE SAY THANK YOU.

GORDON?

Gordon: AS A SAILOR

IN THE NAVY, MATT HAS TO

LEAVE HIS FAMILY FOR LONG

PERIODS OF TIME.

WE ARE DOING EVERYTHING WE

CAN TO MAKE THEIR TIME

APART A LITTLE EASIER.

Reporter: MATT AND

HIS WIFE, BRIE, DON'T TAKE

FAMILY TIME FOR GRANTED.

SHTHEY CHERISH EVERY MINUTE

TOGETHER WITH THEIR

CHILDREN.

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'RE TAKING HIM FOR A

YEAR.

I COULDN'T SURVIVE IF I

DIDN'T HAVE A RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD.

JUST KNOWING HE IS IN

CONTROL AND HE HAS A PLAN,

AND THAT HE'S GOING TO BE

THERE TO GET ME THROUGH

IT.

MOMMY, YOU CAN GIVE ME

A HUG.

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.

BUT TO THEM IT WAS VERY

IMPORTANT.

IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT

SHE WAS CLOSE TO FAMILY

AND PEOPLE SHE COULD RELY

ON, AND THAT WHO

ULTIMATELY WOULD THERE FOR

HER AND OUR KIDS.

Reporter: MATT WOULD

BE ELIGIBLE TO COME HOME

ONCE ON LEAVE, BUT THEY

WOULD VO T HAVE TO PAY FOR HIS

TRAVEL EXPENSES, MONEY

THEY DON'T HAVE.

THEIR PASTOR STOPPED BY

THE GOOD NEWS.

WE'RE GOING TO BE ABLE

TO HELP YOU WITH SOME OF

THE THINGS THAT ARE COMING

UP AS YOU MOVE DOWN TO

TEXAS.

I KNOW THAT WILL BE QUITE

EXPENSIVE.

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 THE ROUNDTRIP FROM

BAHRAIN.

THAT'S AWESOME.

THAT'S A HUGE BLESSING.

THAT'S AMAZING.

WE'RE VERY THANKFUL,

VERY THANKFUL.

Reporter: SEVEN

MONTHS AFTER THE MOVE THE

TEXAS, OUR CBN CAMERAS

WERE THERE WHEN MATT CAME

HOME ON LEAVE.

SECOND WEEK OF OUR

TELETHON AND WE NEED YOUR

HELP.

GORDON?

Gordon: AS A SINGLE

MOTHER, SHANNON STRUGGLED

TO PAY HER BILLS ON A

SUBSTITUTE TEACHER'S

SALARY.

SO SHE CUT BACK ON

EVERYTHING EXCEPT ONE

THING.

Reporter: THE MOST

IMPORTANT LESSON SHE LOVES

TO SHARE IS THE IMPORTANCE

OF GIVING.

I LEARNED ABOUT TITHING

FROM WATCHING MY

GRANDPARENTS AND MY MOM.

SHE TITHED FAITHFULLY.

Reporter: SHANNON'S

COMMITMENT TO TITHING WAS

TESTED WHEN SHE BECAME A

SINGLE MOM.

HER SMALL SALARY AS A

SUBSTITUTE TEACHER MADE IT

NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO PAY

THE BILLS.

I THOUGHT, IT COULD BE

SO EASY JUST TO NOT TITHE

BECAUSE I REALLY NEED THE

MONEY.

AND THE LOWEST POINT WAS

HAVING TO TELL OTHER

PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, WE

COULDN'T DO THING WITH

THEM BECAUSE WE DIDN'T

HAVE THE MONEY.

IT WAS VERY HUMILIATING.

Reporter: ONE SOURCE

OF ENCOURAGEMENT DURING

THIS TIME WAS "THE 700

CLUB."

I WOULD WATCH PAT

ROBERTSON, AND IT WOULD

ENCOURAGE ME TO KEEP

TITHING.

Reporter: SOON

SHANNON'S TEMPORARY

TEACHING JOB BECAME A

PERMANENT ONE.

AND AS HER INCOME

INCREASED, SO DID HER

GIVING.

SHE BECAME A CBN PARTNER.

I REALLY FELT THAT I

NEEDED TO TITHE TO CBN

BECAUSE MY GRANDMOTHER AND

MY UNCLE HAD COME TO KNOW

THE LORD, AND THEY HAVE

BOTH PASSED ON NOWMENT AND

NOW.AND I KNOW THEY'RE IN

HEAVEN BECAUSE OF THIS

SHOW.

IT TOUCHED MY HEART, SO I

JUST KNEW I NEEDED TO GIVE

BACK.

Reporter: JUST ONE

YEAR AFTER SHE BECAME A

PARTNER, SHANNON RECEIVED

AN INHERITANCE T FROM HER

GREAT UNCLE.

SHE WANTED TO HONOR HIM.

SO SHE DOUBLED HER PLEDGE

AND THEN DOUBLED IT AGAIN.

I WANTED TO GET TO THAT

TOP LEVEL.

YOU WOULD HAVE THE

TELETHONS, AND I'D BE

WATCHING THEM, AND I'D BE

LIKE, I THINK I CAN GIVE A

LITTLE MORE THIS YEAR.

Reporter: TODAY

SHANNON IS A CHAIRMAN

CIRCLE'S MEMBER.

AND SHE TELLS OTHERS

GIVING HAS HELPED HER IN

HER LIFE IN MORE WAYS THAN

ONE.

IF YOU TRUST HIM WITH

YOUR MONEY AND TRUST HIM

WITH YOUR HEART, YOUR

WHOLE LIFE WILL JUST

CHANGE.

IT WILL BE REMARKABLE.

Gordon: YOU JUST HAVE

TO TRUST HIM.

WHEN YOU TRUST HIM WITH

YOUR MONEY, YOU TRUST HIM

WITH EVERYTHING THAT YOU

HAVE, AND THAT'S WHEN THE

BLESSINGS COME.

DON'T HOLD BACK FROM GOD.

SHOW HIM HOW MUCH YOU HAVE

FAITH IN HIM.

IF YOU WANT TO START DOING

THAT, HAVE A LIFETIME OF

DOING THAT, GIVE US A

CALL.

1-800-700-7000.

AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

YES, I WANT TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB" GOLD.

OR, YES, I WANT TO JOIN

THE THOUSAND CLUB.

AT WHATEVER LEVEL, NOW IS

THE TIME TO CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, FAITHFUL

FRIENDS LIKE SHANNON ARE

IMPACTING THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE LIKE SONYA.

NOT LONG AGO, SONYA WAS A

PREGNANT WIDOW WITH FOUR

CHILDREN.

SHE HAD NO HOME AND A

DEADLY CASE OF MALARIA.

THANKS TO CBN'S "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," SHE AND HER

CHILDREN NOW HAVE A NEW

HOME AND A NEW LIFE.

TAKE A LOOK.

SONYA LIVED A HAPPY LIFE

WITH HER HUSBAND AND THEIR

FOUR CHILDREN.

WHEN SHE LEARNED SHE WAS

PREGNANT AGAIN, SHE WAS

THRILLED.

BUT HER JOY QUICKLY TURNED

TO SADNESS WHEN HER

HUSBAND DIED OF AIDS.

AFTER HE DIED, MY SON

KEPT ASKING, WHERE IS

DADDY?

AND I JUST COULDN'T TELL

HIM.

Terry: AFTER THE

FUNERAL, SONYA AND HER

CHILDREN STAYED WITH HER

HUSBAND'S FAMILY.

FORCED TO SLEEP OUTSIDE

WITH NO MOSQUITO NETS,

SONYA GOT MALARIA.

I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING

TO DIE, TOO.

I THOUGHT, WHAT WILL

HAPPEN TO MY CHILDREN?

THEY WILL HAVE NO FATHER

OR MOTHER.

THAT THOUGHT KEPT ME

ALIVE.

Terry: SHE TOOK HER

CHILDREN TO HER PARENTS'

HOME, BUT HER PARENTS ONLY

HAD ENOUGH MONEY TO

SUPPORT THEMSELVES.

WE SPENT DAYS WITHOUT

ANY REAL FOOD.

SURVIVING ON WHAT LITTLE

MY MOTHER GOT FROM THE

FIELDS.

Terry: THEN SONYA

REACHED OUT TO "LIFE

CHILD" SUPPORTED BY CBN.

WE ARRANGED FOR THE FAMILY

TO MOVE INTO A HOME

SUPPORTED BY THE MINISTRY.

AND WE HELPED SONYA TREAT

THE MALARIA AND THE H.I.V.

INFECTION SHE GOT FROM HER

HUSBAND.

A FEW MONTHS AFTER

ARRIVING, SHE HAD A BABY

BOY, WHO WAS BORN HEALTHY

AND WITH NO H.I.V.

GOD ANSWERED ALL OF MY

PRAYERS.

MY CHILDREN COULDN'T

BELIEVE THEY EACH GOT

THEIR OWN BEDS.

BECAUSE BEFORE, WE ALL

SLEPT TOGETHER IN MY

PARENTS' LIVING ROOM.

IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL

HERE.

I LOVE THAT IT IS SUCH A

BEAUTIFUL PLACE.

Terry: ALL OF THE

CHILDREN IN THE VILLAGE GO

TO SCHOOL RIGHT HERE, AND

THERE IS A CLINIC THAT

TAKES CARE OF THEIR

MEDICAL NEEDS.

THIS IS THE FIRST OF 18

HOMES BEING BUILT TO HELP

FAMILIES LIKE SONYA'S STAY

TOGETHER.

AS SHE IS SUPPORTED HERE,

SHE WILL HELP TAKE CARE OF

DOZENS OF ORPHANS WHO

DESPERATELY NEED A SAFE

PLACE TO LIVE.

I WILL CARE FOR THEM

LIKE THEY ARE MY OWN.

I THANK GOD THAT I AM HERE

BECAUSE NOW I CAN HELP

OTHER CHILDREN, AS WELL AS

MY OWN.

THANK YOU, CBN!

Terry: THANK YOU,

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS,

BECAUSE YOU MAKE EFFORTS

LIKE THIS POSSIBLE.

YOU TOOK A WOMAN WHO'S

LIFE WAS CHALLENGED BY TWO

LIFE-THREATENING

INFECTIONS.

YOU GAVE HER A BRAND NEW

LIFE, HELP, HOPE, A

FUTURE, A HOME FOR HER

CHILDREN, FOOD ON THE

TABLE.

THAT'S JUST ONE STORY.

AND THERE ARE THOUSANDS

AND THOUSANDS LIKE IT

HAPPENING ALL AROUND THE

WORLD EVERY DAY BECAUSE OF

YOUR GENEROSITY.

WE SAY THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE COULDN'T DO IT WITHOUT

YOU.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO CALL

RIGHT NOW AND JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

WHEN YOU DO, IMMEDIATELY

WE'RE GOING TO SEND YOU

"THE SECRET KINGDOM."

BUT ON TOP OF THAT, WE

WANT TO ASK IF YOU'LL DO

IT USING PLEDGE EXPRESS.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES

ALL OF THE WORK.

IT IS PRETTY WONDERFUL.

IT SAVES US SOME

ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS SO WE

CAN PUT MORE OF YOUR GIFT

INTO THE LIVES OF PEOPLE

LIKE SONYA AND HER

CHILDREN.

WE WANT TO SEND YOU "POWER

FOR LIFE" C.D.s, AND WE

THINK IT WILL BE A

BLESSING TO YOU.

SO HERE IS OUR TOLL-FREE

NUMBER: 1-800-700-7000.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT

TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

TELL US WHAT CLUB LEVEL

YOU'D LIKE TO JOIN AT, AND

SAY, I'D LIKE TO DO IT

USING PLEDGE EXPRESS.

WE THANK YOU.

GORDON?

Gordon: WHEN YOU JOIN

WITH US, YOU'RE CHANGING

LIVES ALL OVER THE WORLD.

LIKE THIS YOUNG WOMAN AND

HER GRANDDAUGHTER IN

CHINA. ON A GOOD DAY,

THEY COULD EARN $4 BY

SELLING POTATOES.

ON A BAD DAY, THEY

STARVED.

Terry: WHEN JIALI'S

FATHER DIED AND HER MOTHER

ABANDONED HER, GRANDMA SUE

SET OUT TO PROVIDE JIALI

WITH THE BEST LIFE SHE

COULD.

I WANTED HER TO GO TO

SCHOOL.

I DIDN'T WANT HER TO

SUFFER LIKE ME.

Terry: FOR YEARS SHE

SOLD POTATOES AT A TOURIST

ATTRACTION ON THE TOP OF A

MOUNTAIN.

SOMETIMES JIALI WENT, TOO.

IT TOOK ALMOST AN HOUR

TO GET THERE.

AND THE LONG WALK HURT HER

BACK AND HER LEGS.

Terry: IT WAS A GOOD

DAY IF THEY MADE $4.

MANY TIMES I DID NOT

SELL EVEN ONE POTATO.

AND I WOULD WAKE UP IN THE

MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

WORRYING THAT THE NEXT DAY

WOULD BE THE SAME.

Terry: AT THIS RATE,

JIALI COULDN'T STAY IN

SCHOOL OR EAT A BALANCED

DIET.

SHE GOT DIZZY A LOT.

I DIDN'T HAVE MONEY TO

BRING HER TO THE DOCTOR OR

GET HER MEDICINE.

IT WAS SO STRESSFUL THAT I

WANTED TO COMMIT SUICIDE.

BUT I KNEW IF I DID, MY

GRANDDAUGHTER WOULD SUFFER

EVEN MORE.

Terry: MEANWHILE,

JIALI WORRIED ABOUT HER

GRANDMOTHER, ESPECIALLY

AFTER THEY GOT CAUGHT IN A

BAD RAINSTORM ON THE WAY

TO WORK.

WE WERE SHIVERING LIKE

TWO DRENCHED SHEEP.

WE SOLD POTATOES ANYWAY.

BUT GRANDMA COULDN'T WALK.

Terry: THEY DIDN'T

HAVE ENOUGH FIREWOOD TO

KEEP THE HOUSE WARM AND

COULDN'T AFFORD COAL.

SO GRANDMA SUE GOT WORSE.

I WAS AFRAID SHE WOULD

DIE.

WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT

HER?

Terry: GRANDMA SUE IS

A CHRISTIAN, SO SHE ASKED

GOD TO HEAL HER AND

IMPROVE HER LIFE.

SOON SHE RECOVERED AND MET

A REPRESENTATIVE FROM CBN.

WE PAID FOR SOME OF

JIALI'S SCHOOL FEES AND

PROVIDED HER WITH

NUTRITIOUS FOOD.

WE STOCKED THEIR HOME WITH

COAL SO THEY WOULD BE WARM

IN THE WINTER.

AND WE HELPED GRANDMA SUE

START A LIVESTOCK

BUSINESBUSINESS.

CBN BOUGHT COWS FOR US

SO WE CAN BREED THEM AND

SELL THEM FOR MONEY.

NOW MY GRANDMA WON'T HAVE

TO CARRY HEAVY THINGS.

I AM MOVED THAT GOD

WOULD LOVE ME SO MUCH HE

WOULD BRING YOU NICE

PEOPLE FROM SO FAR AWAY TO

HELP US.

WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS MY

HAPPINESS.

Gordon: IF YOU'RE A

MEMBER OF "THE 700 CLUB,"

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

CALL AND JOIN US NOW.

> WELL, TWO MONTHS AGO,

A SERIES OF WILDFIRES

RIPPED THROUGH THE CITY OF

HAIFA IN ISRAEL.

MORE THAN 70,000 PEOPLE

WERE FORCED TO FLEE.

AND MANY OF THEM RETURNED

TO FIND THEIR HOMES IN

RUINS.

Reporter: WHEN STRONG

WINDS AND EXTREMELY DRY

CONDITIONS CAUSED A

WILDFIRE SPREAD ACROSS

HAIFA, ISRAEL, MILLIE

CARON DIDN'T KNOW IF SHE

AND HER CHILDREN WOULD

SURVIVE.

FOR TWO HOURS, WE RAN

OUTSIDE THE NEIGHBORHOODS.

EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD WAS ON

FIRE.

Reporter: MORE THAN

70,000 PEOPLE WERE FORCED

TO EVACUATE HAIFA.

NEARLY 500 HOMES WERE

DAMAGED OR COMPLETELY

DESTROYED.

THE NEXT MORNING I CAME

HERE, AND I SAW

EVERYTHING.

AND I STARTED TO CRY.

THE WHOLE LIVING ROOM, THE

WHOLE PATIO, WAS BURNED.

THE AIR CONDITIONER WAS

MELTED, THE FURNITURE WAS

MELTED.

THE WHOLE ROOM WAS BLACK.

I CANNOT EVEN TELL YOU.

Reporter: JUST A FEW

HOURS AFTER THE FIRE WAS

PUT OUT, "OPERATION

BLESSING" ISRAEL IT WAS ON

THE GROUND IN HAIFA WITH

BLANKETS, SHOES, AND FOOD.

THAT'S WHEN THE "OPERATION

BLESSING" DIRECTOR MET

MILLIE.

THIS FAMILY LOST PRETTY

MUCH EVERYTHING.

AND THEY DON'T HAVE

INSURANCE.

WE'RE HERE ASSISTING THEM.

WE BROUGHT MATTRESSES,

SOME FURNITURE.

WE BROUGHT KITCHEN

SUPPLIES.

EVERYTHING THEY NEED WHILE

THEY'RE RENTING A NEW

PLACE.

IT IS VERY, VERY

EXCITING.

IT IS SMALL, BUT FOR US IT

BECAUSE YOU KNOW THEY'RE

THINKING ABOUT YOU AND

WANT TO HELP YOU.

FOR US IT IS A LOT.

I KNOW ONE DAY I WANT TO

"SUPERBOOK" IS TEACHING

THE STORIES OF THE BIBLE

TO CHILDREN AROUND THE

WORLD.

AND IN MYANMAR, IT ALSO

TALLEST ONE 8-YEAR-OLD

GIRL HOW TO HANDLE BULLIES

AT SKEEL.

SCHOOL.

Reporter: WHEN NO ONE

WAS LOOKING, VAL SOMETIMES

STOLE THINGS FROM HER

CLASSMATES.

SHE BELIEVES HER ACTIONS

WERE JUSTIFIED BECAUSE OF

THE WAY THEY TREATED HER.

I STOLE THINGS FROM

THEM BECAUSE THEY WERE

BULLYING ME.

Reporter: AT HOME,

VAL'S MOM NEEDED HELP WITH

THE FAMILY BUSINESS, BUT

THE 8-YEAR-OLD REFUSED TO

DO ANYTHING.

I FELT VERY UPSET AND

DISAPPOINTED WHEN SHE

REFUSED TO HELP ME.

Reporter: THEN ONE

DAY AT CHURCH, VAL WATCHED

A "SUPERBOOK" EPISODE

ABOUT THE 10 COMMANDMENTS.

WHEN I WATCHED

"SUPERBOOK," I FOUND OUT

THAT STEALING IS FORBID.

FORBIDDEN.

SO I DECIDED I WOULD NOT

DO THAT ANYMORE.

Reporter: AFTER

WATCHING THE EPISODE, VAL

TOLD HER SUNDAY SCHOOL

TEACHER SHE HAD BEEN

STEALING.

I ASKED JESUS TO

FORGIVE MY SIN AND BE MY

SAVIOR.

I ALSO PRAYED HE WOULD

HELP ME MAKE PEACE WITH

THE BULLIES.

Reporter: BACK HOME,

VAL ASKED HER MOM TO

FORGIVE HER, TOO.

SHE PROMISED SHE WOULD

LISTEN TO ME AND OBEY AND

CHANGE HER BEHAVIOR.

IT HAS BEEN AMAZING.

NOW SHE HELPS ME THE FIRST

TIME I ASK.

I AM SO HAPPY FOR THE

CHANGE IN HER.

Reporter: VAL ALSO

SHARED THE GOSPEL WITH HER

CLACLASSMATES, INCLUDING THE

> LET'S GO TO WENDY AT

THE PHONES.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT,

THANKS.

> GARY HAVEN WENT FROM

BEING FLAT BROKE TO OWNING

THE MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR

"CURVES" BUSINESS.

IT TAUGHT US THOSE

BASIC BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES

THAT IF APPLIED, ALLOW GOD

TO BLESS US.

Gordon: WE HAVE

COMPILED THOSE PRINCIPLES

ON THIS D.V.D. FOR YOU, AS

WELL AS MY TEACHING CALL

"THE LAW OF EXPECTATION."

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

THAT'S BETTER.

GARY HAVEN, HE READ "THE

SECRET KINGDOM", AND THE

LORD BLESSED HIM SO MUCH.

GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

WHAT HE CAN DO FOR GARY,

HE CAN DO FOR YOU.

YOU CAN DISCOVER THE

SECRET THAT UNLOCKS

MIRACLES IN YOUR LIFE.

THE NUMBER IS $258,000

WITH FOUR MINUTES LEFT ON

THE CLOCK.

AND I'M THROWING IT OVER

TO TERRY.

Terry: FOR A LONG

TIME, LENA LOOKED FORWARD

TO THE BIRTH OF HER

DAUGHTER.

BUT WHEN THAT DAY CAME, IT

WASN'T ANYTHING LIKE SHE

IMAGINED.

Reporter: LENA'S

FIRST INSTINCT AS A MOTHER

WAS TO BLAME HERSELF WHEN

HER DAUGHTER WAS BORN WITH

A CLEFT PALATE.

I THOUGHT IT WAS

SOMETHING I DID WRONG.

Reporter: SHE WATCHED

HELPLESSLY AS HER DAUGHTER

TRIED TO EAT AND DRINK.

EVERY TIME PASCA DRANK

MILK, SHE CHOKED ON IT AND

IT CAME OUT OF HER NOSE.

Reporter: THEN THE

TODDLER FIGURED OUT THAT

BY PUTTING THREE FINGERS

IN HER MOUTH TO BLOCK HER

CLEFT PALATE, IT WOULD

KEEP HER FROM CHOKING

WHILE SHE DRANK.

HER PARENTS TRIED TO SAVE

FOR HER SURGERY, BUT

TOGETHER THEY EARNED ONLY

A DOLLAR A DAY.

THEN SOMEONE TOLD THEM

ABOUT CBN.

AND WE ARRANGED FOR PASCA

TO RECEIVE THE SURGERY FOR

FREE.

THE FIRST TIME I SAW

HER AFTER THE OPERATION, I

AM SO HAPPY AND GRATEFUL.

HER LIPS ARE BEAUTIFUL.

Terry: YOU KNOW, WHEN

A CHILD HAS A CLEFT PALATE

AND A CLEFT LIP, IT IS NOT

JUST A VISUAL THING THAT

WE'RE TRYING TO CORRECT.

IT IS LITERALLY THE

ABILITY TO EAT, TO TAKE

NOURISHMENT, TO GROW AND

THRIVE AS A CHILD, AND

THEN TO BE ABLE TO SPEAK

CLEARLY AND THE VISUAL.

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS, YOU

ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN

THE LIVES OF THOUSANDS OF

CHILDREN WHO HAVE THE

MISFORTUNE OF BEING BORN

WITH THIS.

IT IS CORRECTABLE.

THEY JUST DON'T HAVE THE

MEANS TO DO IT.

BUT YOU ALLOW US TO COME

RIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE OF

THAT NEED AND MAKE A HUGE

DIFFERENCE.

THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT

FOR PASCA, AS WELL AS

THOWLSZ OTHOUSANDS OF OTHERS.

CALL RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

BIG CHALLENGE.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

WILL YOU USE PLEDGE

EXPRESS, WHICH MEANS OUR

GIVING GOES FURTHER

BECAUSE WE SAVE ON

ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS.

PASCA'S CORRECTION WAS

AVAILABLE BECAUSE YOU

CARED ENOUGH TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

SO CALL NOW.

GORDON?

Gordon: WELL,

WATERING THE VEGETABLE

GARDEN OUTSIDE CLASS WAS

NOT AN EASY TASK FOR MALU.

HE HAD TO WALK EIGHT MILES

ROUNDTRIP TO GET THE

WATER.

BUT NOT ANYMORE, THANKS TO

PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

Reporter: EVERY

MORNING MALU WATERS THE

VEGETABLE GARDEN.

THERE IS ONLY ONE PROBLEM,

HE HAS TO WALK TWO MILES

EACH WAY TO GET THE WATER,

AND HE MAKES THAT TRIP

FOUR TIMES A DAY.

HE HAS TO COLLECT WATER

BECAUSE THE TANK THAT HELD

RAIN WATER FOR THE SCHOOL

WAS DESTROYED DURING A

TYPHOON.

SO CBN CAME AND DUG A DEEP

WELL FOR THE SCHOOL.

NOW HE AND THE OTHER

CHILDREN HAVE ALL OF THE

CLEAN WATER THEY NEED TO

DRINK AND TO USE FOR THE

VEGETABLE GARDEN.

AND MORE WATER IS

HELPING THE PLANTS GROW

FASTER.

Reporter: HE IS

EXCITED BECAUSE HE KNOWS

WHEN THE VEGETABLES ARE

GROWN, HE AND HIS

CLASSMATES WILL BE ABLE TO

SELL THEM, TO BE ABLE TO

BUY BOOKS AND SCHOOL

SUPPLIES FOR EVERYONE.
