Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

PRESIDENT TRUMP CONTINUES

TO MOVE FULL SPEED AHEAD,

FULFILLING HIS CAMPAIGN

PROMISES.

HE IS MEETING WITH

REPUBLICANS TODAY TO TALK

ABOUT GETTING HIS AGENDA

THROUGH CONGRESS,

INCLUDING THE REPEAL OF

OBAMACARE.

Terry: AND THE

PRESIDENT IS LOOKING AT

DRASTICALLY CUTTING

AMERICA'S ROLE IN THE

UNITED NATIONS.

JENNIFER WISHON BRINGS US

THE STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Jennifer: PRESIDENT

DONALD TRUMP TRAVELLED TO

PHILADELPHIA TODAY TO

GENERATE BROTHERLY LOVE

AMONG REPUBLICANS IN

CONGRESS.

HE IS THERE FOR A STRATEGY

SESSION, DESIGNED TO PUT

G.O.P. LAWMAKERS ON THE

SAME PAGE ON ISSUES LIKE

REPLACING OBAMACARE DURING

THESE CRUCIAL EARLY DAYS

OF HIS ADMINISTRATION.

THE PRESIDENT IS MOVING

AHEAD WITH HIS AGENDA

THROUGH EXECUTIVE ACTIONS.

HE IS EXPECTED TO PUT A

TEMPORARY HALT ON THE FLEW

OF REFUGEES INTO THE U.S.,

AND DIRECT HIS

ADMINISTRATION TO STOP

ISSUING VISAS TO PEOPLE

COMING FROM COUNTRIES WITH

STRONG TIES TO TERRORISM,

INCLUDING IRAN, SYRIA, AND

YEMEN.

AFTER SIGNING AN EXECUTIVE

ORDER TO BEGIN THE PROCESS

OF BUILDING A WALL ALONG

THE NATION'S SOUTHERN

BORDER, TRUMP RENEWED HIS

PROMISE THAT MEXICO WILL

PAY FOR THE CONSTRUCTION.

President Trump: WE

WILL BE, IN A FORM,

REIMBURSED BY MEXICO.

Jennifer: THE MEXICAN

PRESIDENT IS CONSIDERING

CANCELLING HIS TRIP

FOLLOWING TRUMP'S ORDER TO

BUILD THE WALL.

Jennifer: TRUMP'S

ACTIONS ON TRADE,

MANUFACTURING AND BUSINESS

RELATIONS ARE CAUSING WALL

STREET TO GO UP.

THE DOW JONES CROSSED THE

MILESTONE OF 20,000 THIS

WEEK.

AND THE PRESIDENT IS

LAUNCHING AN INVESTIGATION

INTO VOTER FRAUD.

WHERE YOU HAVE FOLKS ON

ROLLS THAT HAVE BEE BEEN

DECEASED OR MOVED.

Jennifer: NIKKI HALEY

HAS BEEN SWORN IN AS

AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED

NATIONS.

SHE SUPPORTS THE

PRESIDENT'S CALL TO MOVE

THE U.S. EMBASSY IN

JERUSALEISRAELTO JERUSALEM.

AND THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS

CONSIDERING DRASTICALLY

REDUCING THE UNITED STATES

ROLE IN THE U.N.,

INCLUDING ELIMINATING

FUNDING FOR THE U.N. OR

OTHER AGENCIES THAT GIVE

FULL MEMBERSHIP TO THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY,

SUPPORT PROGRAMS THAT FUND

ABORTIONS OR GO AROUND

SANCTIONS AGAINST IRAN OR

NORTH KOREA.

THE U.S. PAYS 22% OF THE

U.N. BUDGET.

> JENNIFER WISHON, CBN

NEWS, WASHINGTON.

Gordon: IN OTHER

NEWS, A MAJOR WORLD LEADER

IS JOINING PRESIDENT TRUMP

AND THE REPUBLICANS IN

PHILADELPHIA TODAY.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THAT

STORY.

Charlene: BRITISH

PRIME MINISTER TERESA MAY

WILL TELL REPUBLICANS THAT

THE U.S. AND THE U.K. WERE

LEADERS IN BUILDING THE

MODERN WORLD AND THEY CAN

GET TOGETHER AGAIN.

TRUMP AND MAY ARE EXPECTED

TO DISCUSS A TRADE DEAL

WITH THE U.K. AS IT

PREPARES TO LEAVE THE

EUROPEAN UNION AFTER LAST

YEAR'S BREXIT VOTE.

> PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH

ARE STILL CLEANING UP AND

RECOVERING FROM THE DEADLY

TORNADOES AND STORMS THAT

STRUCK THE REGION THIS

PAST WEEKEND.

AND "OPERATION BLESSING"

VOLUNTEERS ARE ON THE

SCENE TO HELP PEOPLE IN

THE HARD-HIT TOWN OF

ALBANY, GEORGIA.

GARY LANE HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: MARTIN TOOK

COVER WHEN SH HE HEARD WHAT

SOUNDED LIKE A FREIGHT

TRAIN COMING.

IT LASTED ABOUT A

MINUTE OR TWO MINUTES, AND

WHEN I CAME OUT, EVERY

TREE IN MY YARD WAS DOWN.

Reporter: HE SAID HE

WOULD NEVER HAVE ENOUGH

MONEY OR ABILITY TO REMOVE

THE DOWNED TREES.

ONE COMPANY SAID IT WOULD

CHARGE HIM $22,000 TO DO

THE WORK.

THAT'S WHEN "OPERATION

BLESSING" VOLUNTEERS MOVED

INTO ACTION.

HE WAS TOUCHED BY THEIR

KINDNESS AND HELP.

IT RENEWS MY FAITH.

I THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.

Reporter: DAN MOORE

IS DIRECTOR OF THE U.S.

DISASTER RELIEF.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

VOLUNTEERS HAVE BEEN HARD

AT WORK WITH TARPS AND

DEBRIS REMOVAL, AS WELL AS

SALVAGING PERSONAL

BELONGINGS.

Reporter: AND

"OPERATION BLESSING" WILL

BE PARTNERING WITH

SHERWOOD BAPTIST CHURCH

AND THE HOME DEPOT COMPANY

TO HELP MORE PEOPLE IN THE

DAYS AHEAD.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS ACCEPTING

VOLUNTEERS TO HELP PEOPLE

RECOVER FROM THE TORNADO

IN ALBANY, GEORGIA.

VOLUNTEERS MEET MONDAY

THROUGH SATURDAY AT

8 a.m. AT THE NEW BIRTH

FELLOWSHIP CHURCH AT 2106

RAIDIAN SPRINGS ROAD IN

ALBANY.

WE ANNOUNCED EARLIER IF

YOU WANTED TO VOLUNTEER,

YOU HAD TO PROVIDE YOUR

OWN LODGING, BUT STARTING

TOMORROW, "OPERATION

BLESSING" WILL BE ABLE TO

PROVIDE OVERNIGHT SHELTER

FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO GO

TO ALBANY AND VOLUNTEER.

THAT WILL KICK OFF

TOMORROW NIGHT.

FOR MORE INFORMATION --

YOU HAVE TO BE

PRE-REGISTERED IN ORDER TO

GET THE SHELTER.

YOU HAVE TO CALL 757-374-

757-374-0944.

757-374-0944.

AND YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND

OUT MORE ABOUT GOING TO

THEIR WEBSITE, ob.org.

> WE'LL BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

AFTER THIS.

Gordon: STUDIES SHOW

THAT THE NUMBER ONE REASON

COUPLES FIGHT IS MONEY.

THAT WAS DEFINITELY TRUE

FOR JIM AND GINGER.

WHEN GINGER WANTED TO MAKE

AN INVESTMENT, JIM THOUGHT

IT WAS A BAD IDEA.

EVENTUALLY HE GAVE IN, AND

TODAY JIM WILL TELL HE IS

GLAD HE DID.

Reporter: JIM AND

GINGER ARE LIVING THEIR

DREAM LIFE IN ALASKA.

JIM HAS A SENIOR POSITION

WITH AN OIL COMPANY, AND

GINGER IS A TOP-SELLING

REALTOR.

THEY SAY THEIR SUCCESS

GOES BACK TO GIVING.

IT JUST SEEMS LIKE THE

MORE AND MORE THAT WE

GIVE, THE MORE AND MORE

THINGS THAT HAPPEN, THE

MORE BLESSINGS THAT ARE

RETURNED.

Reporter: WHEN JIM

AND GINGER MARRIED, HE WAS

SERVING IN THE AIR FORCE,

AND SHE HAD TWO CHILDREN

FROM A PREVIOUS MARRIAGE.

RIGHT FROM THE START,

THEIR BUDGET WAS TIGHT.

GINGER KNEW THEY SHOULD BE

TITHING, BUT CONVINCING

JIM WASN'T SO EASY.

I DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING

ABOUT TITHING.

SO, YEAH, WHEN SHE FIRST

STARTED SAYING, HEY, I

WANT TO GIVE, I'M

THINKING, WE COULD USE

THIS MONEY FOR SO MUCH

OTHER STUFF.

SOMETHING THAT GOD

REALLY LAID ON MY HEART IS

HE WOULD ALWAYS PROVIDE.

Reporter: HE FINALLY

AGREED, AND THEY STARTED

TITHING FAITHFULLY TO

THEIR CHURCH.

THERE WERE HARD TIMES.

THERE WERE MANY TIMES I

DIDN'T KNOW HOW I WAS

GOING TO MAKE IT TO

PAYDAY.

THAT IS THE MIRACLE OF

GOD, IS THAT HE CAN BRING

BLESSINGS OUT OF THE WORST

DROUGHT.

IT ALWAYS SEEMED LIKE

IT WAS RIGHT WHEN YOU

NEEDED IT, IT'S THERE.

IT WAS REALLY NEAT.

Reporter: AS THE

COUPLE TITHED, THEIR

INCOME KEPT INCREASING.

IN 1995, TIM RETIRED FROM

THE AIR FORCE AND GOT A

GREAT JOB AND SEVERAL

PROMOTIONS.

GINGER GOT HER REAL ESTATE

LICENSE AND WAS EVENTUALLY

ABLE TO START HER OWN

COMPANY.

OVER THE YEARS, THEY ALSO

DEVELOPED A PASSION FOR

HELPING OTHERS.

IN 2006, THE COUPLE

DECIDED TO GIVE ABOVE

THEIR TITHE TO CBN.

I LOVE TO HEAR THE

TESTIMONIES OF WHAT "THE

700 CLUB" AND CBN IS

DOING.

EVERY TIME YOU HEAR OF A

DISASTER, A FLOOD OR AN

EARTHQUAKE, CBN IS THERE.

AND I FEEL SO GOOD BEING A

PARTNER BECAUSE YOU CAN'T

GET ON O A PLANE AND FLY TO

EVERY DISASTER, BUT THAT

IS A WAY I FEEL LIKE I CAN

BE THERE.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

THEY'RE FINANCIALLY SECURE

NOW, THEY TAKE NOTHING FOR

GRANTED AND SAY THEIR

BLESSINGS COME FROM GOD

AND THEIR OBEDIENCE TO

GIVE.

GIVE AND WHATEVER HE

WANTS YOU TO HAVE, HE'LL

GIVE YOU.

THE MORE I GIVE, THE MORE

COMES BACK.

I CONSIDER US REALLY

BLESSED, I REALLY DO.

IF YOU HAVE THAT LOVE

IN YOUR HEART AND YOU WANT

TO HELP PEOPLE, GIVE.

GIVE AND HE WILL GIVE AND

HE WILL BLESS US ACCORDING

TO HIS RICHES AND GLORY.

Gordon: WE CALL ITS

LAW OF RESP, FROITSLAW OF RESIPROCITY.

"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."

IT SEEMS

COUNTER-INTUITIVE.

WE ALWAYS THINK, I'LL GIVE

WHEN I HAVE ENOUGH.

NO.

THE PRESENCTHE PRINCIPLE IS YOU GIVE

FIRST AND THEN IT WILL BE

GIVEN UNTO YOU.

> DAY LEON JOHNSON AND

HIS WIFE, TANYA, OWN FIVE

SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES.

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THEY

WERE ONCE SO BROKE THEY

COULDN'T EVEN AFFORD TO

SHOP AT THE DOLLAR STORE.

Reporter: PLAYING

GOLF IS ONE OF THE WAYS

LEON AND TONYA TAKE A

BREAK FROM RUNNING FIVE

SUCCESSFUL COMPANIES.

MY LIFE IS INCREDIBLE

RIGHT NOW BECAUSE OF GOD.

Reporter: LEON HAS

LEARNED SOME HARD LESSONS.

IT WAS 1993 WHEN HE AND A

PARTNER STARTED A MOBILE

CAR DETAILING OPERATION

AFTER 14 1/2 YEARS IN THE

NAVY.

EVEN THOUGH HE WORKED HARD

AND HAD A LOT OF

COSTUMERS, HE WASN'T

MAKING A PROFIT.

WHEN YOU GO INTO

BUSINESS, EVERYONE

BELIEVES YOU'RE GOING TO

BE AN INSTANT SUCCESS.

WE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND

MARKET RESEARCH.

SO YOU QUICKLY REALIZE YOU

HAVE A LOT OF BUSINESS,

BUT YOU'RE NOT MAKING A

PROFIT.

Reporter: TANYA

SALARY AS A BANK TELLER

WAS THEIR OWN INCOME.

THEY COULDN'T KEEP UP WITH

THEIR BILLS AND HAD TO

RENT AN APARTMENT.

A FRIEND RENTED OUT A ROOM

TO THEM AND THEIR YOUNG

DAUGHTER.

I REMEMBER SOME NIGHTS

LAYING THERE AND CRYING

MYSELF TO SLEEP.

AND MY HUSBAND DIDN'T EVEN

KNOW, BUT I WAS SILENTLY

CRYING OUT TO GOD, SAYING

GOD, YOU'VE GOT TO HELP

US.

Reporter: LEON

STARTED SUFFERING FROM

STRESS AND ANXIETY.

MY CONSISTENT PRAYER TO

GOD WAS, GOD, I LOVE YOU.

I NEED YOUR HELP.

GOD'S ANSWER TO ME WAS

CONSISTENTLY, I LOVE YOU;

FOLLOW MY PRINCIPLES.

Reporter: ONE OF

THOSE PRINCIPLES WAS

TITHING, SOMETHING THE

COUPLE HADN'T DONE

CONSISTENTLY SINCE

STARTING THE BUSINESS.

LEON DECIDED TO TITHE

FAITHFULLY ON ANYTHING HE

MADE.

HE SAYS AFTERWARDS THE

BUSINESS STARTED TURNING A

PROFIT.

IT DID SO WELL, THEY WERE

ABLE TO MOVE INTO A HOUSE

THEY HAD RENTED.

BUT AFTER A YEAR, THEY HAD

STOPPED GOING TO CHURCH

AND TITHING.

ONCE AGAIN, THE BUSINESS

STARTED LOSING MONEY.

I THINK THE REASON I

WENT BACK TO MY OLD WAYS

IS SOMETIMES WE FEEL LIKE,

OKAY, THANK YOU, GOD, I'VE

GOT IT FROM HERE.

Reporter: AFTER A

YEAR, HIS BUSINESS BEGAN

FAILING.

HIS INCOME DROPPED SO

DRAMATICALLY, THAT HE

COULDN'T AFFORD TO SHOP AT

DISCOUNT STORES.

THE REALITY HIT ME THAT

I COULD NOT AFFORD ONE

ITEM IN THE DOLLAR STORE.

THAT WAS A VERY SOBERING

MOMENT FOR ME.

FROM THAT POINT, IN THAT

DOLLAR STORE, I SAID,

LORD, I GET IT.

LORD, I WILL BE FAITHFUL.

LORD, I WILL BE OBEDIENT.

Reporter: SOON

AFTERWARDS, HE AND LA

TONYA FOUND A NEW CHURCH

AND STARTED TITHING.

WE ACTUALLY HAD HOPE

AGAIN.

Reporter: WITH THE

DETAILING BUSINESS DOING

SO WELL, TONYA QUIT HER

JOB AT THE BANK AND

STARTED A CLEANING

BUSINESS OF HER OWN.

AND NOW THE COUPLE OWN

FIVE SUCCESSFUL

BUSINESSES.

THE FINANCIAL BLESSING

HAS BEEN WONDERFUL, BUT

GOD HAS RESTORED ME TO

RIGHT-THINKING AND

HUMILITY.

AND AS A MAN, I FEEL THAT

I'M VERY WELL-BALANCED.

Reporter: IN ADDITION

TO THEIR TITHES, THE

COUPLE ARE ALSO CBN

FOUNDERS.

IT IS A GREAT MINISTRY,

A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO

GIVE TO SOMETHING THAT IS

A LOT BIGGER THAN US.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

HAS LEARNED MANY LESSONS

ABOUT RUNNING A BUSINESS,

BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE

IS GIVING OBEDIENTLY TO

GOD.

GOD IS FAITHFUL.

HE IS A GOD THAT WILL NOT

LIE.

DETERMINE IN YOUR HEART

AND MIND THAT I'M GOING TO

START.

AND GOD KNOWS YOUR HEART.

HE KNOWS WHERE YOU ARE,

AND HE WILL MEET YOU RIGHT

WHERE YOU ARE.

GOD IS FAITHFUL TO

EVERYTHING AND TO EVERY

PRINCIPLE AND TO EVERY

PROMISE THAT'S WRITTEN IN

THE WORD.

BE OBEDIENT TO GOD.

JUST TRUST HIM.

Gordon: JUST TRUST

HIM.

HERE IS A PROMISE FOR YOU

FROM PROVERBS 11: "IT IS

POSSIBLE TO GIVE AWAY AND

BECOME RICHER.

IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO

HOLD ON TOO TIGHTLY AND

LOSE EVERYTHING.

YES, THE LIBERAL MAN SHALL

BE RICH BY WATERING OTHERS

OTHERS, HE WATERS

HIMSELF."

AND LEON AND TONYA LEARNED

THAT.

THEY LEARNED THAT THE HARD

WAY BECAUSE WHEN THEY

STOPPED GIVING, THEN

THINGS DRIED UP.

IT IS POSSIBLE TO HOLD ON

TOO TIGHTLY AND LOSE

EVERYTHING.

BUT THE WONDERFUL

PRINCIPLE, WHEN YOU PUT IT

INTO PRACTICE, GIVE AND IT

WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU.

THIS ISN'T SOME GET RICH

QUICK KIND OF THING.

IT IS SOMETHING WHERE YOU

HAVE A LIFE TILE O LIFESTYLE OF DOING

IT, OF GIVING GENEROUS AND

CHEERFULLY AND THAT'S WHEN

THE BLESSINGS COME.

> IN EXISTING CBN

PARTNERS WANT TO CHALLENGE

OTHERS TO GIVE.

SO TO THE END OF THE HOUR,

THEY'LL CHALLENGE YOU AND

MATCH YOUR GIVING, DOLLAR

FOR DOLLAR, $142,000.

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: AND LET'S

PRAY.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS, AND WE ASK FOR

INCREASE.

AND WE ASK FOR THE

INCREASE THAT CAN ONLY

COME FROM YOU, THAT 30,

60, 100-FOLD INCREASE.

LORD, MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR

YOUR CHILDREN TO BELIEVE

IN YOUR PROMISES.

GIVE US THE FAITH TO

BELIEVE.

WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

D.V.D. CALLED "THE SECRET

KINGDOM" AND "THE LAW OF

EXPECTATION."

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ON

ONE D.V.D., WE'RE OFFERING

YOU ALL OF THE TEACHINGS

FROM PAT'S NATIONAL

BEST-SELLER, PLUS THE

BONUS TEACHING FROM

GORDON.

TAKE A LOOK.

Gordon: YEARS AGO, MY

FATHER HAD A GREAT

REVELATION: IF JESUS WAS

GOD, THEN EVERYTHING HE

SAID WAS THE 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

KEYS THAT BUILD SUCCESS IN

FINANCES, HEALTH,

RELATIONSHIPS, AND MUCH

MORE.

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 MERELY BY THE

FACT THAT YOU BELIEVE IT.

Announcer: NOW FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN ONE

D.V.D., "THE SECRET

KINGDOM" AND "THE LAW OF "THE LAW OF

EXPECTATION."

Terry: THERE BE

PRINCIPLES THAAREPRINCIPLES THAT HAVE BEEN

ESTABLISHED BY OUR CREATOR

HIMSELF.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB" TODAY, NOT ONLY WILL

YOUR GIFT GO TWICE AS FAR

BECAUSE WE'RE IN THE

MIDDLE OF A CHALLENGE, BUT

WE'RE GOING TO SEND YOU

OUR GIFT: "THE SECRET

KINGDOM" AND "THE LAW OF

EXPECTATION."

IT WILL BE A HUGE BLESSING

FOR YOU.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE:

1-800-700-7000.

GORDON?

Gordon: KIM STILL

REMEMBERS STANDING IN LINE

FOR FOOD STAMPS.

HER HUSBAND, MAC, RECALLS

ALMOST LOSING EVERYTHING

WHEN THE ECONOMY TANKED.

TODAY THE COUPLE OWNS A

NUMBER OF BUSINESSES AND A

NUMBER OF EXOTIC

PROPERTIES.

AND JUST ONE DECISION MADE

ALL OF THE DIFFERS.

DIFFERENCE.

Reporter: ABOUT AN

HOUR NORTH OF SAN DIEGO,

LIES OCEANSIDE,

CALIFORNIA.

MAC AND KIM CALL THIS

HOME.

THEY ENJOY THE BEAUTIFUL

SUNSETS AND PEACEFUL

ATMOSPHERE.

AND EVERY DAY THEY GIVE

GOD THE CREDIT.

IT IS JUST STUNNING ALL

OF THE TIME.

I WAKE UP EVERY MORNING

THINKING, I CAN'T BELIEVE

I'M HERE.

LIFE IS GREAT.

I'M VERY BLESSED TO BE

HEALTHY.

AND GOD HAS REALLY BLESSED

US, FOR SURE.

Reporter: MAC AND KIM

NOW OWN SEVERAL THRIVING

BUSINESSES.

BUT WHEN THEY GOT MARRIED

OVER 30 YEARS AGO, BOTH

WERE STRUGGLING

FINANCIALLY.

KIM WAS A SINGLE MOM

RAISING THREE CHILDREN.

WHEN I WAS 32 YEARS

OLD, I WENT THROUGH A

DIVORCE.

AND I WAS STANDING IN THE

FOOD STAMP LINE, WAITING

TO GET FOOD STAMPS FOR MY

KIDS BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE

A JOB, DIDN'T HAVE ANY

MONEY.

Reporter: MAC WAS A

REAL ESTATE INVESTOR

SUPPORTING FOUR KIDS.

HE LOST NEARLY EVERYTHING

WHEN THE ECONOMY TANKED.

EVERY OPTION I EXPLORED

AND TRIED WASN'T WORKING.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW I WOULD

MAKE A LIVING, HONESTLY.

Reporter: MAC AND KIM

WERE BOTH CHRISTIANS.

EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE

STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY,

THEY DECIDED TO MAKE

TITHING A PRIORITY.

WHEN WE FIRST STARTED

OUT, WE REALIZED THAT WE

NEEDED TO PUT GOD FIRST

AND THEN TAKE CARE OF OUR

EXPENSES, AND THEN TRY TO

LIVE WITHIN OUR MEANS, IF

NOT UNDER OUR MEANS.

IT IS EASY TO GIVE WHEN

YOU'RE FINANCIALLY

BLESSED.

BUT WHEN YOU'RE REALLY

STRAPPED, YOU KNOW, YOU

ALWAYS KIND OF SAVE THAT

FOR LAST BECAUSE YOU'VE

GOT TO THINK OF OTHER

THINGS LIKE HOUSING AND

FOOD AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

SO YOU DON'T THINK ABOUT

GIVING TO GOD FIRST AND

NOT WORRYING THAT HE'LL

TAKE CARE OF YOU.

WELL, I WAS WORRIED,

BUT I BELIEVE YOU DON'T

GIVE UP.

YOU KEEP TRYING AND YOU

CAN MOVE FORWARD.

Reporter: AS THE REAL

ESTATE MARKET IMPROVED,

THEY BEGAN MAKING MONEY

FLIPPING HOMES.

INSTEAD OF PROFITING ALL

OF THE PROFITS, MAC WANTED

TO INVEST IN A COLLATERAL

LOAN BUSINESS.

I SAW THINGS CHANGING

FOR THE GOOD.

ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER,

LOCATIONS WOULD OPEN UP

THAT I DIDN'T THINK WAS

POSSIBLE.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

THEY COULD AFFORD

INVESTING IN RENTAL

PROPERTY ON MAUI.

EVERY PIECE OF THE

PROPERTY GOD HAD HIS

FINGERPRINTS ON.

IT WAS AMAZING.

Reporter: AS THE

COUPLE'S SUCCESS GREW, SO

DID THEIR GIVING.

ONE DAY DURING THE

TELETHONS, THE LORD LAID

IT ON MY HEART TO JUST

DOUBLE MY GIVING AND I

DID.

AND GOD JUST KEPT GIVING

ME MORE AND MORE AND MORE.

Reporter: MAC AND

KIM'S NET WORTH HAS

TRIPLED SINCE THEIR EARLY

DAYS OF FLIPPING HOUSES.

THEY BELIEVE GOD HAS

BLESSED THEM BECAUSE THEY

PUT HIM FIRST AND EVERY

AREA OF THEIR LIVES.

I REALLY FEEL STRONGLY

IF YOU'RE OBEDIENT, GOD

WILL BLESS YOU.

MEAHE'LL TAKE CARE OF YOU.

Gordon: IF YOU'RE

OBEDIENT, GOD WILL BLESS

YOU.

HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM

MATTHEW, AND THESE ARE THE

WORDS OF JESUS: "DON'T

WORRY ABOUT HAVING ENOUGH

FOOD OR DRINK OR CLOTHING.

YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER

ALREADY KNOWS ALL YOUR

NEEDS, AND HE WILL GIVE

YOU ALL YOU NEED FROM DAY

TO DAY IF YOU LIVE FOR HIM

AND MAKE THE KINGDOM OF

GOD YOUR PRIMARY CONCERN."

MAC AND KIM, WHEN THEY

WERE DOWN, THEY SAID,

WE'RE GOING TO PUT GOD

FIRST.

AND YOU SEE THE BLESSINGS

THAT HAPPENED TO THEM.

IT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU IF

YOU FOLLOW THE SAME

PRINCIPLES.

GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

HE STANDS BY HIS WORD TO

HONOR IT, AND HE WILL

HONOR IT FOR YOU.

CALL US IF YOU WANT TO

START A LIFESTYLE OF

GIVING: 1-800-700-7000.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IT'S JUST $20 A MONTH, 65

CENTS A DAY.

WHEN YOU CALL AND ASK TO

JOIN, PLEASE ASK FOR

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

THE BANK DOES ALL OF THE

WORK, AND WE SEND AS OUR

GIFT TO YOU, "POWER FOR

LIFE," OUR MONTH TEACHING

C.D.s.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANK YOU,

GORDON.

WELL, IT IS A BRAND NEW

YEAR, WITH A NEW

OPPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE

YOUR LIFE.

AND IT ALL STARTS BY

CHANGING THE WAY WE THINK.

GORDON CALLS IT "THE LAW

OF EXPECTATION."

YOU CAN PUT IT TO WORK IN

YOUR LIFE WITH THIS NEW

D.V.D. COMBO FROM PAT AND

GORDON.

Wendy: WOW, THIS IS A

POWERFUL COMBO.

GORDON AND PAT HAVE TEAMED

UP TOGETHER TO BRING YOU

THIS, "THE SECRET KINGDOM"

AND "THE LAW OF

EXPECTATION."

YOU CAN DISCOVER THE

SECRETS THAT UNLOCK

MIRACLES IN YOUR LIFE.

YOU KNOW, THE KINGDOM, AS

PAT WAS SAYING IN THAT

PROMO, HAS EVERYTHING THAT

WE NEED AS BELIEVERS, BUT

WE'VE GOT TO ACCESS IT.

WE'VE GOT TO DIG IT OUT

BECAUSE GOD HAS SECRETS

HIDDEN IN HIS WORD THAT HE

WANTS TO REVEAL TO YOU AND

ME.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO

TO YOUR PHONES AND SAY,

YES, I WANT TO JOIN "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

CALL 1-800-700-7000.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com AND SAY, I WANT

TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

GREAT QUESTION.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH IS ALL IT TAKES TO

BECOME A CBN PARTNER.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY THERE,

THAT'S GOOD NEWS.

BUT I WANT TO CHALLENGE

YOU.

IT'S A BRAND NEW YEAR.

LET'S GO UP TO THE GOLD

LEVEL, JUST $40 A MONTH.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, WE'RE

GOING TO BLESS YOU BACK

WITH THREE D.V.D.s.

AND IF YOU CAN GO

HIGHER -- HEY, A LOT OF US

CAN -- GO UP TO THE

THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL, AND

WHEN YOU DO THAT, WE'RE

GOING TO GIVE YOU FIVE

D.V.D.s.

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU

WHEN YOU GIVE US A CALL

RIGHT NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," YOU'RE

HELPING PEOPLE FROM ALL

PARTS OF THE WORLD, LIKE A

LITTLE BOY FROM CHINA

NAMED DONG SHU.

MORE THAN ANYTHING, HE

LONGED TO RIDE A BIKE.

BUT A LIFE-THREATENING

INFECTION MADE THAT

IMPOSSIBLE.

EVERY TIME DONG SHU SAW A

BICYCLE, HE PICTURED

HIMSELF ON IT, RACING

THROUGH THE STREETS OF HIS

TOWN.

IT WAS A FAR-FETCHED DREAM

FOR A BOY WHO COULDN'T

WALK OR HOLD HIS HEAD UP

WITHOUT A BRACE.

HIS BACTERIA MOVED

THROUGHOUT HIS BODY AND

INFECTED HIS BONES.

HE GOT FEVERS EVERY

AFTERNOON AND ALWAYS CRIED

OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

NIGHT.

I COULDN'T MOVE.

EVERY DAY I THOUGHT, WHEN

WILL I BE BETTER?

WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO GO

TO SCHOOL AND RUN?

WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO

RIDE A BIKE?

Terry: BY THE TIME HE

WAS FOUR, TWO SECTIONS OF

DONG SHU'S SPINE THAT

DETERIORATED BY THE

INFECTION.

DOCTORS SAID WITHOUT

TREATMENT AND SURGERY,

HE'D BECOME PERMANENTLY

PARALYZED AND DIE.

SOMETIMES HE GOT REALLY

BED HEADACHES AND WOULD

BEAT HIS BED WITH HIS

FISTS.

HE FELL DOWN ALL OF THE

TIME, AND COULD NOT EVEN

SIT UP TO EAT OR DRINK,

BUT HE WAS ALWAYS SUCH A

POSITIVE BOY.

HE HELPED ME TO BE

POSITIVE, TOO.

Terry: MR. YANG

WORKED HARD, SOLD LAND AND

BORROWED MONEY, BUT COULD

NEVER AFFORD SURGERY.

I STILL BELIEVED ONE

DAY I WOULD BE OKAY.

I BEGGED THE LORD,

PLEASE DO THIS FAVOR FOR

OUR SON AND I WILL PRAISE

YOU FOREVER.

Terry: SOON A FRIEND

TOLD THE YANGS ABOUT CBN.

WE ARRANGED TREATMENTS TO

GET RID OF THE TOXIC

BACTERIA IN DONG SHU'S

BODY.

WE ALSO SET UP AND PAID

FOR SURGERY TO FIX HIS

SPINE.

I COULD FEEL GOD'S LOVE

THROUGH YOU.

I'M GRATEFUL BEYOND

EXPRESSION.

TODAY I WAS ABLE TO

STAND UP STRAIGHT.

IT WAS THE HAPPIEST DAY OF

MY LIFE.

I AM HEALED.

BECAUSE OF THIS, NOW I

BELIEVE, LIKE MY WIFE,

THAT GOD IS REAL.

IT IS A MIRACLE.

Terry: AND NOW DONG

SHU CAN RACE THROUGH TOWN

LIKE HE ALWAYS WANTED TO,

ON A BRAND NEW BICYCLE,

ALSO GIVEN TO HIM BY CBN.

I FEEL LIKE I'M FLYING.

YOU MADE MY DREAM COME

TRUE.

Terry: MAKING DREAMS

COME TRUE, BEING PART OF

THE ANSWER TO PEOPLE'S

PRAYERS AROUND THE WORLD,

IS WHAT "700 CLUB" MEMBERS

DO EVERY DAY.

GOD USES US TO SHOW

EXPRESSIONS OF HIS LOVE TO

OTHER PEOPLE.

AND JOINING "THE 700 CLUB"

IS AN EXCELLENT WAY TO DO

THAT.

BECAUSE WE'RE AT WORK NOT

JUST AROUND THE WORLD, BUT

HERE AT HOME AS WELL.

I WANT TO INVITE YOU TO BE

A PART OF THAT RIGHT NOW.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE:

1-800-700-7000.

LOOK AT THE DIFFERENT

BECAUSE WHEN YOU REACH OUT

SO CALL NOW.

GORDON?

Gordon: EVERY DAY WE

HEAR ABOUT THE HORRORS OF

ISIS IN THE NEWS.

AHAN AND AZIZA ARE SYRIAN

REFUGEES WHO HAVE

PERSONALLY SUFFERED AT THE

HANDS OF THE TERRORISTS.

THEIR FAMILY WAS FORCED TO

LEAVE THEIR HOME AND

EVERYTHING THEY OWN TO

FLEE TO IRAQ.

THEY ESCAPED WITH THEIR

LIVES, BUT AHAN'S BROTHER

NEVER MADE THE IT OUT.

Reporter: AZIZA AND

HER CHILDREN WERE FORCED

TO RUN THE NIGHT ISIS

ATTACKED THEIR HOME.

WE WENT AS FAST AS WE

COULD AND LEFT EVERYTHING

BEHIND TO BE DESTROYED BY

ISIS.

I ONLY THOUGHT ABOUT OUR

SURVIVAL AND GETTING TO MY

HUSBAND IN TURKMENISTAN.

Reporter: THE BORDER

WAS CLOSED, SO SHE PAID A

SMUGGLER TO GET THEM IN

IRAQI, AFGHANISTAN.

THEN THEY JOINED HER

HUSBAND.

HE HAD GONE AHEAD TO FIND

WORK.

I WAS SO HAPPY TO SEE

THEM AND HOLD THEM IN MY

ARMS.

BUT MY BROTHER DIDN'T

ESCAPE.

ISIS CAPTURED HIM AND CUT

HIM INTO PIECES AND SENT

ME THE PICTURES ON MY

PHONE.

NOW I SEE THAT IMAGE IN MY

HEAD EVERY DAY.

Reporter: THEY

QUICKLY FOUND OUT HOW HARD

LIFE IS FOR REFUGEES.

THE COST OF LIVING HERE

IS TOO HIGH.

AND THE COMPANY I WORK FOR

HAS REFUSED TO PAY FIVE

MONTHS OF WAGES THEY OWE

ME.

NO ONE IS WILLING TO HELP

US.

I'M ESPECIALLY WORRIED FOR

MY WIFE BECAUSE WE FOUND

OUT SHE IS PREGNANT.

MY HUSBAND HAS HIGH

BLOOD PRESSURE BECAUSE OF

HIS STRUGGLES, AND I AM

AFRAID HE WILL HAVE A

HEART ATTACK.

WE CAN BARELY BUY FOOD,

BUT THE HARDEST PART, AS A

MOTHER, IS NOT BEING ABLE

TO GET TOYS FOU FOR MY

CHILDREN.

MY SON'S ONLY TOY IS

BROKEN.

IT IS HIS DREAM TO HAVE A

REMOTE-CONTROLLED CAR, BUT

WE CAN'T AFFORD IT.

Reporter: AZIZA CAN'T

FIND A JOB BECAUSE OF THE

STIGMA AGAINST WOMEN.

WE TOOK HER TO AN ANCIENT

MARKET IN IRBIL AND HELPED

HER BUY EVERYTHING SHE

NEEDED.

AND WE FOUND A STORE FRONT

CLOSE TO HER HOME AND PAID

THREE MONTHS' RENT IN

ADVANCE.

THIS WAS AN AMAZING

THING FOR YOU TO DO FOR

US.

Reporter: AND CBN GOT

BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICINE

FOR AHAN AND PRENATAL

VITAMINS FOR AZIZA.

AND BEFORE WE LEFT, WE HAD

BRAND NEW TOYS FOR THE

CHILDREN.

I'M SO GRATEFUL TO GOD

FOR HAVING MET YOU.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR DESIRE

TO HELP US.

ISLAM COMES WITH A

BLOODY SWORD.

AND NOW WE HAVE

CHRISTIANITY, WHO CAME

WITH SUPPORT AND LOVE.

Gordon: WE WANT TO

HELP PEOPLE VERY

TANGEABLY.

WHETHER THAT IS REFUGEES

IN IRAQ, REFUGEES COMING

OUT OF SYRIA, REFUGEES IN

LEBANON, OR PEOPLE RIGHT

HERE AT HOME THAT NEED

MUCH-NEEDED FOOD OR HELP

WITH DISASTER RELIEF --

WHEN DISASTER STRIKES, WE

LOVE AND COMPASSION.

GARY HAVEN WAS AT ROCK

KINGDOM", AND IT CHANGED

EVERYTHING.

IT CHANGED HIS LIFE.

WE MADE IT EASY FOR YOU TO

HAVE TO READ IT; YOU CAN

THAT MEANS EVERY DOLLAR

YOU PLEDGE RIGHT NOW WILL

BE DOUBLED, MATCHED DOLLAR

FOR DOLLAR.

THIS IS A GREAT TIME TO GO

TO YOUR PHONES AND WE NEED

YOUR HELP.

GORDON?

Gordon: WELL, MARK

AND SUE WERE S SO BROKE THEY

WERE DOWN TO NOTHING BUT

SOME CHANGE IN A JAR.

SO WHEN MARK DECIDED HE

WANTED TO GIVE SOME OF

THAT MONEY AWAY, SUE

STRONGLY RESISTED AT

FIRST.

THEN SHE AGREED, AND LATER

THAT DAY SHE REALIZED IT

WAS THE BEST THING THEY

COULD HAVE EVER DONE.

Reporter: MARK AND

SUE REMEMBER THE EARLY

YEARS OF THEIR MARRIAGE.

LIVING IN COLORADO, THEY

COULDN'T FIND FULL-TIME

WORK.

THEY HAD TO RELY ON TEMP

JOBS TO GET BY.

WE WERE DOING REALLY,

REALLY POORLY AS FAR AS

BEING ABLE TO PAY THE

BILLS.

Reporter: THEN ONE

NIGHT MARK HEARD A MESSAGE

FROM A PREACHER ON

TELEVISION.

HE WAS TEACHING ABOUT

TITHING.

I FELT THE SPIRIT OF THE

LORD TELLING ME THIS IS

SOMETHING TO DO IN

OBEDIENCE TO HIM.

Reporter: SUE WASN'T

SO SURE.

WHY WOULD I TITHE WHEN

WE DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY.

Reporter: THE ONLY

MONEY THEY HAD WAS THE

LOOSE CHANGE THEY KEPT IN

A JAR.

AND ALTHOUGH SUE WAS

FRUSTRATED AND WORRIED,

SHE AGREED.

I TOOK THE JAR OF

CHANGE, DUMPED IT OUT AND

BEGAN COUNTING IT.

THAT'S ALL WE HAD LEFT

TO BY BREAD AND GROCERIES,

BUT THAT'S WHEN WE WERE

GOING TO TITHE OUT OF.

Reporter: MARK

RECEIVED A PHONE CALL.

I SAID, SUE, YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO BELIEVE THIS, BUT

THAT WAS A JOB OFFER AND I

START TOMORROW MORNING.

Reporter: IT WAS A

FULL-TIME POSITION THAT

MORE THAN COVERED THEIR

EXPENSES AND LAUNCHED MARK

INTO A CAREER IN I.T.

THAT PRETTY MUCH

SETTLED IT FOR ME AS FAR

AS TITHING.

I GOT THE CON TENT FROM CONCEPT FROM GOD

RIGHT THERE.

EVEN BEFORE WE ACTUALLY

TITHED, WE JUST MADE THE

COMMITMENT, AND THE LORD,

AGAIN, SHOWED, YES, THIS

IS EXACTLY WHERE YOUR

HEART NEEDS TO BE AND YOU

NEED TO TRUST ME.

Reporter: MARK AND

SUE HAVE BEEN TITHING EVER

SINCE, NO MATTER WHAT THE

CHALLENGES.

AND GOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN

FAITHFUL.

MARK STILL ENJOYS A

SUCCESSFUL CAREER IN I.T.

THAT HAS LANDED THE COUPLE

IN ALASKA.

AS WE SURRENDER MORE

AND MORE TO HIM, AND

TITHING IS A BEGINNING

PART OF THAT, HE REWARDS.

Reporter: AND THEY

ALSO SUPPORT CBN.

SUE LOVES HOW "OPERATION

BLESSING" PROVIDES CLEAN

DRINKING WATER TO

DESPERATE PEOPLE AROUND

THE WORLD.

HOW MANY CHILDREN'S

LIVES WERE SPARED BECAUSE

THEY DRANK HEALTHY WATER?

SO THAT REALLY, REALLY

MEANT A LOT TO ME.

Reporter: MARK SAYS

THEIR FAITH HAS GROWN AS

THEY HAVE TRUSTED GOD

THROUGH TITHING.

TITHING IS TEACHING US

TO TRUST HIM, THAT HE IS

FAITHFUL, THAT HE IS GOD.

WHAT WE THINK OF AS MONEY,

IT'S ALL HIS.

AND HE SAYS, TEST HIM IN

THIS.

SEE IF I DEN I DON'T POUR OUT

BLESSINGS UPON YOU.

AND HE HAS WITH US.

Gordon: AND HE WILL

DO THE SAME FOR YOU

BECAUSE HE STANDS BY HIS

WORD TO PERFORM IT.

I'VE GOT SOME WONDERFUL

NEWS.

SOME CBN PARTNERS FROM

OKLAHOMA WANT TO ADD TO

THE CHALLENGE.

THEY WANT TO ADD $46,000

TO IT.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS.

AND WE ASK FOR INCREASE.

AND WE ASK ESPECIALLY THAT

YOU WOULD SPEAK TO PEOPLE

TODAY.

ENCOURAGE YOUR PEOPLE,

LORD GOD, FOR WE ASK IT

ALL IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

WELL, WE'VE GOT A

CHALLENGE, 89,000 IS WHAT

IS LEFT ON AN $188,000

CHALLENGE.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

SOME OF YOU CAN COME IN AT

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN

CATASTROPHIC FLOODS

RAVAGED THE CITY OF

ROSENBERG, TEXAS, THE

ANDRATI'S HOME WAS

DEVASTATED.

IN NO TIME, THIS FAMILY

SAW 40 YEARS OF THEIR

LIVES REDUCED TO A PILE OF

RUBBLE ON THE SIDE OF THE

ROAD.

Reporter: FELIC FELICEANO

AND ARORA DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

TO DO AFTER AED FLOOD.

EVERYTHING HAD TO BE

STRIPPED OUT OF THE HOUSE,

AND IT BECAME A VERY

PITIFUL SITE.

Reporter: BUT THE

FAMILY DID WHAT THEY COULD

TO KEEP THEIR SPIRITS UP.

YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING

HAS A REASON ON WHY IT

HAPPENEDMENT WE HAVHAPPENED.

WE HAVE A LOT OF FAITH IN

GOD.

I HAD TO TELL MY HUSBAND

EVERY DAY IT IS GOING TO

BE OKAY.

THE BIGGEST

DISAPPOINTMENT FOR ME WAS

SEEING THE PILE.

NEARLY 40 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 ROSENBURG,

TEXAS.

THAT'S WHERE "OPERATION

BLESSING" BECAME A

BLESSING TO ME.

THEY SENT IN A GROUP OF

VOLUNTEERS, AND THEY WENT

AHEAD AND TOOK EVERYTHING

OUT OF THE HOUSE, CUT THE

SHEET ROCK OUT TO ABOUT

FOUR FEET.

Reporter: BUT THE

"OPERATION BLESSING" TEAM

WASN'T FINISHED.

WE ASKED THE FAMILY TO

STAY AWAY FOR A COUPLE

EXTRA WEEKS SO WE COULD

GET EXTRA WORK DONE ON

THEIR HOME.

WE NEVER THOUGHT THIS

WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

WHEN WE OPENED THE

FRONT DOOR, NEVER

EXPECTING WHAT WE SAW.

WOW!

WOW!

A COMPLETE HOME.

I WOULD HAVE NEVER

GUESSED -- AND I DON'T

THINK ANYBODY IN THE WORLD

WOULD HAVE 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 DREAMS.

YOU HAVE 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, THE COUPLE 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, OF COURSE, ALL I'VE

GOT TO DO IS LOOK AROUND.

HERE IT IS.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: THAT

HEART-FELT THANK YOU IS

FOR YOU, "700 CLUB"

MEMBERS.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

AS WELL.

IT'S BECAUSE OF YOUR

KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY,

THAT WE'RE ABLE TO TOUCH

FAMILIES LIKE THIS IN A

WAY THAT GIVES THEM A

FRESH START, A BRAND NEW

BEGINNING.

AND ISN'T THAT GOD'S WAY?

AND HE GIVES US THE

PRIVILEGE OF PARTICIPATING

IN IT.

GO TO YOUR PHONE AND BE A

PART OF IT.

THE MOMENT YOU CALL, EVERY

DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL BE

MATCHED DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

SO LET US HEAR FROM YOU.

WHEN YOU CALL AND YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," AT

WHATEVER LEVEL YOU DECIDE

TO JOIN AT, WOULD YOU ALSO

DO IT USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS?

ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS SO WE

CAN PUT EVEN MORE OF YOUR

GIFT DIRECTLY INTO THE

LIVES OF PEOPLE LIKE THE

ANDROTIS.

THANK YOU IS TO SEND YOU

"POWER FOR LIFE"

TEACHINGS.

CALL NOW.

GORDON?

Gordon: WELL, WHEN

RITA'S APARTMENT CAUGHT ON

FIRE, SHE WAS TERRIFIED

SHE WOULD BE BURNED ALIVE.

SHE ESCAPED WITH HER LIFE

BUT LOST EVERYTHING SHE

OWNED.

AND FOR THIS ELDERLY WOMAN

LIVING IN ISRAEL, THE

TRAUMA BROUGHT BACK

HORRIFIC MEMORIES OF THE

HOLOCAUST.

Reporter: RITA LOVES

SPENDING TIMES WITH HER

FRIENDS IN HER APARTMENT

IN ISRAEL.

THEIR COMPANY HELPS HER

COPE WITH THE HORRIBLE

MEMORIES SHE HAS ARE THE

HOLOCAUST.

THE BOMBS STARTED

FALLING AND IT WAS SO

SCARY.

FIRE WAS EVERYWHERE.

Reporter: RITA'S

PARENTS QUICKLY LOADED HER

AND HER SISTER ON A HORSE

DRAWN CART AND THEY FLED.

THEIR BELONGINGS WERE

CONFISCATED AND THEY WERE

FORCED TO WALK BACK TO

THEIR VILLAGE, WHICH WAS

SOON TURNED INTO A GHETTO.

I SAW PUBLIC

HUMILIATION, VIOLENCE,

EXECUTIONS.

Reporter: IN THE

CHAOS OF THE FINAL DAYS OF

THE WAR, A CHRISTIAN

NEIGHBOR WAS ABLE TO SNEAK

HERE FAMILY INTO THEIR

HOME, WHERE THEY WERE

HIDDEN UNTIL THE AREA WAS

LIBERATED.

THEY SAVED US OUT OF

THE GOODNESS OF THEIR

HEARTS, AND I WILL NEVER

FORGET THAT.

Reporter: YEARS AFTER

SURVIVING THE HORRORS OF

THE HOLOCAUST, RITA MOVED

TO ISRAEL.

BUT LIFE HASN'T BEEN EASY

LATELY.

BAD WIRING AND AN OLD TV

CAUSED AN ELECTRICAL FIRE.

EVERYTHING SHE OWNED WAS

DESTROYED.

I WAS TERRIFIED, AND I

TRIED TO GET OUT AS FAST

AS I COULD.

BUT I HAVE TROUBLE

WALKING, AND I THOUGHT I

WOULD BURN UP.

I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS

GOING TO DO.

I HAVE NO INSURANCE AND NO

MONEY.

EVERYTHING I HAD WAS LOST.

Reporter: SO CBN

ISRAEL GOT RITA BRAND NEW

APPLIANCES, INCLUDING A

STOVE, REFRIGERATOR AND

WASHING MACHINE.

AND WE ALSO BOUGHT HER NEW

FURNITURE, AND A MORE

STABLE WALKER.

NOW SHE HAS NEW FRIENDS

WHO SHE INVITES OVER TO

ENJOY HER APARTMENT.

I'M SO THANKFUL YOU

WERE WILLING TO HELP ME.

EMOTIONALLY I WAS

DESTROYED.

BUT I HAVE PEACE IN MY

HEART NOW.

I PRAY THAT YOU WILL

CONTINUE TO HELP OTHERS.

WHAT YOU DO IS SO

IMPORTANT.

Gordon: WE WANT TO

HELP PEOPLE IN ISRAEL.

WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE IN

CHINA.

WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE

FAIRYTALE.

RUNS BATTED I Terry: RAY AND JEMMA

HAVE ONE DREAM, TO GIVE

THEIR GRANDDAUGHTER A

BETTER LIFE.

RAIN OR SHINE, GRANDPA RAY

WORKED HARD TO PROVIDE FOR

HIS FAMILY'S NEEDS.

BUT THEN A TYPHOON

DESTROYED THEIR COCONUT

TREES AND THE RICE HE

PLANTED.

IT WAS HARD.

I BORROWED RICE PLANTS

FROM OTHER FARMERS.

I PROMISED THEM HALF OF MY

HARVEST.

WE DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH FOOD

TO SURVIVE UNTIL THE NEXT

HARVEST.

Terry: SO GRANDPA

WORKED OTHER JOBS TO PAY

THE MODEST FEES FOR

PRINCESS TO ATTEND SCHOOL.

WHEN THEIR MONEY RAN OUT,

GRANDMA HAD TO BUY FOOD ON

CREDIT.

WHEN PRINCESS GOT SICK,

THEY HAD TO BORROW MONEY

FOR MEDICINE.

WHEN I HAVE A HIGH

FEVER, I SHIVER A LOT.

GRANDMA TAKES CARE OF ME.

Terry: ONE DAY

PRINCESS WENT TO A FEEDING

PROGRAM SPONSORED BY CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE." FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG

TIME, PRINCESS ATE A

HEALTHY LUNCH, WITH LOTS

OF FRESH VEGETABLES.

THAT FOOD IS MY

FAVORITE.

IT TASTES GOOD.

SHE IS ALWAYS EXCITEDED

TO GO FOR LUNCH AT THE

CENTER.

I'M SO HAPPY SHE IS EATING

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES.

SHE HASN'T GOTTEN SICK

EVER SINCE.

Terry: WE THEN

TRAINED GRANDMA AND HELPED

HER START A BUSINESS TO

INCREASE THE FAMILY'S

INCOME.

I STARTED THE FOOD

VENDING BUSINESS.

I KEPT ADDING ITEMS TO THE

MENU.

AND MY FOOD ALWAYS SELLS

OUT.

> WHEN VER YO VERONICA'S FATHER

GOT SICK, HER MOTHER AND

HER WERE DESPERATE.

ONE DAY AFTER VERONICA SAW

AN EPISODE OF "SUPERBOOK,"

SHE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT DO

DO TO HELP HER FATHER.

Reporter: ALIOTTO IS

KNOWN AS THE POOREST AREA

OF ALL OF CENTRAL AMERICA.

BUT A NEW "SUPERBOOK"

CURRICULUM IS BRINGING

HOPE TO FOLKS LIKE VER ON

KA ANVERONICA AND HER PARENTS.

IT TEACHES ME LOOSEST ME A LOT OF

THINGS ABOUT THE BIBLE.

Reporter: HER DAD

SELLS FRUIT.

SOMETIMES VERONICA'S MOM

HELPS HIM.

EACH MONTH THEY EARN $250.

THEY WERE BARELY GETTING

BY WHEN RAFAEL GOT SICK.

I STARTED TO FEEL PAIN

ALL THROUGH MY BODY.

I HAD A TERRIBLE HEADACHE.

I SPENT THREE DAYS LYING

IN MY BED.

I FELT SO ALONE.

WHEN I ASKED GOD, WHAT CAN

I DO?

I COULDN'T STAND TO SEE MY

HUSBAND SUFFERING.

BUT I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY TO WRITE ONE

BILL.

Reporter: AROUND THAT

TIME, VERONICA WATCHED A

"SUPERBOOK" EPISODE THAT

TAUGHT HER ABOUT PRAYER

AND TRUSTING GOD.

I PRAYED FOR MY FAMILY

AND ASKED GOD TO HELP US.

IT WORRIES ME THAT MY

PARENTS DON'T HAVE ANY

MONEY.

Reporter: GOD

ANSWEREDED VE VERONICA'S

PRAYER.

FIRST, HER FATHER FULLY

RECOVERED.

THEN WE GOT RAFAEL SET UP

WITH A BIGGER, BETTER

CART, SO HE CAN SELL TWICE

AS MUCH EVERY DAY.

I THANK GOT EVERY DAY.

THIS CART IS VERY BIG.

AND I CAN GIVE VERY GOOD

SERVICE TO MY CLIENTS NOW.

AND BECAUSE OF THIS, MY

INCOME HAS RISEN.

Reporter: VERONICA

AND HER FAMILY SAY THAT

ONE EPISODE OF "SUPERBOOK"

CHANGED EVERYTHING.

NOW SHE PRAYS AND TALKS

TO HER FRIENDS ABOUT GOD.

SO MANY GOOD THINGS

HAPPENED AFTER I WATCHED

"SUPERBOOK."

IT HELPED ME TO HAVE MORE

FAITH.

I PRAYED FOR MY DAD, AND

NOW HE FEELS BETTER AND WE

HAVE FOOD.

Gordon: IT IS

WONDERFUL WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN THE STORIES OF THE

BIBLE GET TO THE CHILDREN

OF THE WORLD.

WE HAVE THE FAITH OF A

LITTLE CHILD.

AMAZING THINGS CAN HAPPEN.

WE WANT TO SEE THAT

HAPPEN.

TODDLER WHO CRIES WHEN SHE

LOOKS AT HERSELF IN THE

MIRROR.

SHE WAS BORN WITH A CLEFT

LIP AND HER PARENTS

ABANDONED HER.

Reporter: HER

GRANDPARENTS TOOK HER IN A

DAY AFTER SHE WAS BORN.

I THOUGHT, HOW COULD MY

SON AND HIS WIFE GET A

DIVORCE AND LEAVE THEIR

DAUGHTER JUST LIKE THAT.

Reporter: WHAT THEY

DIDN'T REALIZE IS HOW

DIFFICULT IT WOULD BE TO

RAISE A CHILD WITH A CLEFT

PALATE.

SITIA OFTEN LOOKS AT

HERSELF.

WHEN SHE CRIES, I ASK HER

WHY AND SHE POINTS TO HER

LANE.

ONCLIP.

ONCE I HEARD SOME PEOPLE

SAY SHE LOOKS LIKE A

VAMPIRE.

Reporter: THEN THEY

LEARNED ABOUT CBN'S CLEFT

LIP SURGERIES.

THEY TOOK HER FOR A

CHECKUP, BUT THE NEWS WAS

NOT GOOD.

SHE HAD TUBERCU LOSS.

Reporter: SO VINCE CBN GAVE

HER MERCHANDISE.

MEDICINE.

TODAY SHE IS A HEALTHY

3-YEAR-OLD WHO CAN'T WAIT

TO GO TO PRE-SCHOOL.

OUR NEIGHBORS SAY SHE

CALL US, AND YOU CAN STILL

BE A PART OF IT.

WHEN YOU CALL, I WANT YOU

TO HAVE THIS.

IT'S A WONDERFUL TEACHING,

MY FATHER'S SIGNATURE

TEACHING.

IT'S "THE SECRET KINGDOM."

AND WITHIN THAT, HE

UNLOCKS WHAT GOD REVEALED

TO HIM ABOUT HOW JESUS,

WHEN HE TALKS, HE IS

LAYING DOWN THE LAWS OF

THE KINGDOM.

HE IS LAYING DOWN THE LAWS

OF THE UNIVERSE.

AND WHEN YOU OBSERVE THESE

LAWS, YOU CAN HAVE GREAT

SUCCESS IN YOUR LIFE, IN

YOUR MINISTRY.

IT HAS BEEN WHAT HAS BUILT

CBN OVER THE YEARS.

I WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

IT IS YOURS WHEN YOU JOIN.

1-800-700-7000.

WE HAD $188,000 ON THE

CHALLENGE.

AGAINST THAT YOU GAVE

$209,000.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM HEBREWS:

"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."
