Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

TODAY PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL

SIT DOWN WITH BRITISH

PRIME MINISTER THERESA MAY

IN HIS FIRST OFFICIAL

MEETING WITH A FOREIGN

HEAD OF STATE.

THEY'LL TALK ABOUT A RANGE

OF THINGS FROM TERRORISM

TO A POTENTIAL TRADE DEAL.

Terry: MANY ARE

CALLING THEM THE NEW

REAGAN AND THATCHER, BUT

THERE IS ONE TOPIC ON

WHICH THEY MAY NOT SEE EYE

TO EYE.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THAT

STORY.

Jennifer: PRESIDENT

DONALD TRUMP AND BRITISH

PRIME MINISTER THERESA

MAY, WILL THEY BECOME THE

NEXT REAGAN AND THATCHER?

MAY TOLD REPORTERS ON HER

PLANE RIDE THAT SOMETIMES

OPPOSITES ATTRACT.

PRIME MINISTER MAY IS THE

FIRST FOREIGN LEADER

PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL

RECEIVE AT THE WHITE

HOUSE.

IT IS SYMBOLIC OF THE

CLOSE RELATIONSHIP THAT

ENDURES BETWEEN THE U.S.

AND BRITAIN, BUT THERE ARE

MANY SERIES ISSUES TO

DISCUSS.

PERHAPS NEAREST AND

DEAREST FOR TRUMP IS

TRADE.

THE PRESIDENT HAS SPOKEN

EASILY ABOUT MAKING A FREE

TRADE DEAL WITH BRITAIN,

AND MAY IS ANXIOUS TO FIND

AN ECONOMIC PARTNER

OUTSIDE OF THE EUROPEAN

UNION, AS SHE ORCHESTRATES

BRITAIN'S BREXIT.

A NEW TRADE DEAL

BETWEEN BRITAIN AND

AMERICA MUST WORK FOR BOTH

SIDES AND SERVE BOTH OF

OUR NATIONAL INTERESTS.

IT MUST HELP TO GROW OUR

RESPECTIVE ECONOMIES, AND

TO PROVIDE THE

HIGH-SKILLED, HIGH-PAID

JOBS OF THE FUTURE.

Reporter: THE

DAUGHTER OF A VICCOR,

THURSDAY SHE VISITED WITH

CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS

HOLDING A RETREAT IN

PHILADELPHIA, WHERE SHE

PLAYED UP A STRONG

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE U.S.

AND AMERICAN

CONSERVATIVES.

THE VALUE IS LIBERTY,

THE DIGNITY OF WORK, THE

PRINCIPLES OF NATIONHOOD,

FAMILY, ECONOMIC PRUDENCE,

PATRIOTISM, AND PUTTING

POWER IN THE HANDS OF THE

PEOPLE.

Jennifer: SHE

REFERENCED PRESIDENT

RONALD REAGAN OFTEN, AND

EVEN PLAYED OFF HIS FAMOUS

QUOTE, "TRUST BUT VERIFY,"

TO EXPLAIN HER APPROACH TO

RUSSIA.

AND THEY WILL DISCUSS

JOINT EFFORTS TO DEFEAT

ISIS, THE WAR IN SYRIA,

AND NATO.

BUT ANOTHER MEETING WITH A

FOREIGN LEADER IS OFF

AFTER THE PRESIDENT OF

MEXICO CANCELLED HIS VIDEO

FOLLOWING A DISPUTE WITH

PRESIDENT TRUMP OVER A

WALL ON THE BORDER BETWEEN

U.S. AND MEXICO.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS PLANNED

TO SIGN NORE EXECUTIVE

ORDERS, INCLUDING A BAN ON

REFUGEES ENTERING THE

U.S., AND A HALT ON

IMMIGRATION OF IMMIGRANTS

FROM COUNTRIES WITH STRONG

TIES TO TERRORISM.

Gordon: THEY'RE GOING

TO TALK ABOUT THE SUPREME

COURT AND SOME OTHER

TOPICS, AND YOU CAN SEE

THE FULL WHITE HOUSE

INTERVIEW SUNDAY NIGHT AT

11 p.m. EASTERN ON ABC'S

FREEFORM CABLE CHANNEL.

AND IT WILL AIR MONDAY ON

"THE 700 CLUB."

> IN OTHER NEWS, VICE

PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE AND

KELLYANNE CONWAY WILL

SPEAK TO THE ANNUAL "MARCH

FOR LIFE" TODAY.

EVEN BEFORE TODAY'S MARCH,

WASHINGTON WAS FILLED WITH

PRO-LIFE EVENTS.

PAUL STRAND HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: EVEN BEFORE

THE "MARCH FOR LIFE," MANY

OF THE MARCHERS MARCHED

OVER TO THE NEW PLANNED

PARENTHOOD MEGA CENTER

HERE IN WASHINGTON TO

PROTEST.

LAST YEAR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD COMMITTED

323,999 ABORTIONS.

ALMOST ONE OUT OF EVERY

THREE ABORTIONS IN

AMERICA.

Reporter: A MAIN

GOAL: GETTING AMERICA TO

STOP THE TAXPAYER FUNDING

OF HIS ABORTION CENTER.

TAKE THE HALF MILLION

DOLLARS BEING USED TO HARM

AND TO HURT AND TO SHIFT

IT TO THOSE WHO HEAL.

Reporter: NOW THERE

IS ALL SORTS OF ACTIVITIES

AND EVENTS THAT SURROUND

IT.

THERE WAS A HUGE RALLY

WITH YOUNG PEOPLE POURING

IN DROVES INTO A HOTEL

BARROOM.

THIS FEATURED PRO-LIFE

CLOTHING, BOOKS, AND EVEN

ACTIVITIES.

AND THOSE WHO ALMOST GAVE

UP THEIR BABIES GO TO

LAWMAKERS' OFFICES TO

ADVOCATE FOR PRO-LIFE.

THIS WOMAN SAYS SHE WAS

DESPERATE OVER A

PREGNANCY, BUT A PRO-LIFE

CENTER TALKED HER INTO

KEEPING THE BABY, WHO IS

NOW ALEXIS.

I CANNOT IMAGINE A LIFE

WITHOUT MY MOM.

SO I'M GLAD.

I'M THANKFUL FOR

EVERYTHING, BUT ESPECIALLY

FOR MY DAUGHTER, ALEXIS.

Reporter: "40 DAYS

FOR LIFE" WAS REMINDING

PRO LIFE ACTIVISTS WHAT IS

REALLY ON THE LINE WHEN IT

COMES TO ABORTION.

IT IS THE MOST BRUTAL

ACT IN OUR NATION AND ONE

THAT NEEDS HOPE.

NOBODY GROWS UP WANTING AN

ABORTION.

WHEN WE'RE THERE, WE CAN

OFFER HOPE AND WE CAN

OFFER LOVE.

Reporter: PAUL

STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Gordon: IT IS

DEFINITELY A NEW DAY IN

WASHINGTON.

AND WE'LL SEE.

THE SUPREME COURT NOMINEE

IS GOING TO BE WHERE THE

REAL BATTLE IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

AND THAT WILL TAKE SOME

CONFIRMATION HEARINGS TO

CONFIRM.

BUT WE'LL SEE.

IT LOOKS VERY HOPEFUL.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" AFTER THIS.

Gordon: SHANTELLE RAY

STARTED OUT WITH AN

ENTRY-LEVEL JOB MAKING

JUST $9 AN HOUR.

TODAY SHE OBE OWNS A

MULTI-MILLION REAL ESTATE

BUSINESS.

SHE IS LIVING HER DREAM,

AND WELL ON HER WAY TO HER

ULTIMATE GOAL: GIVING AWAY

90% OF HER INCOME.

Reporter: MEET

SHANTELLE RAY.

SHE IS THE MAIN MOTIVATION

AND SKILL BEHIND A

MULTI-MILLION REAL ESTATE

COMPANY, A COMPANY THAT IS

NAMED AS ONE OF THE

FASTEST GROWING IN

AMERICA.

TO DATE, SHE HAS 130

EMPLOYEES AND FIVE

LOCATIONS.

WE'RE GOING AT ABOUT A

35% TO 40% EVERY SINGLE

YEAR WE'VE BEEN IN

BUSINESS.

IT HAS REALLY BEEN

EXCITING.

Reporter: YEARS AGO,

SHE WAS STRUGGLING WITH AN

ENTRY-LEVEL JOB AND A

MEAGER SALARY.

HER DEFINITION OF SUCCESS

THEN WAS HAVING ENOUGH

FOOD AND A ROOF OVER HER

HEAD.

I WAS A YOUTH PASTOR

AND I MADE $9 AN HOUR AND

I WORKED LIKE 60 HOURS A

WEEK.

I WAS PUTLY LITERALLY PUTTING LITERALLY

GROCERIES ON MY CREDIT

CARD BECAUSE I WAS MAKING

SO LITTLE I COULDN'T MAKE

IT.

Reporter: AFTER A

WHILE, SHANTELLE WAS

$10,000 IN DEBT AND

MAXEDED OUT ON CREDIT.

THAT'S WHEN I REALLY

STARTED TO PANIC BECAUSE I

COULDN'T USE MY CREDIT

CARD FOR GAS AND GROCERIES

AND THINGS THAT I NEEDED.

Reporter: DURING THIS

DIFFICULT TIME, SHANTELLE

HEARD A MESSAGE AT CHURCH

ON THE BIBLICAL PRINCIPLE

OF TITHING.

MY IMMEDIATE REACTION

WHEN THEY TALKED ABOUT

TITHING WAS I JUST CAN'T

DO IT RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: BUT MONTHS

LATER, SHANTELLE WAS STILL

COUNTING PENNIES AND

WORRIED ABOUT NOT BEING

ABLE TO MAKE HER RENT.

SHE WAS DESPERATE ENOUGH

TO TRY TITHING.

I FINALLY GOT TO THE

PLACE WHERE I WAS, LIKE,

OKAY, GOD, I'M GOING TO GO

ALL OUT AND TEST YOU TO

SEE IF YOU ARE REALLY TRUE

IN THIS AREA.

Reporter: THE NEXT

SUNDAY, AS SHE WAS GETTING

READY FOR CHURCH, SHE

WROTE A $30 CHECK FOR THE

OFFERING.

I WAS, LIKE, PLEASE,

GOD, LET THIS GO THROUGH

BECAUSE I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW

WHAT THE BALANCE WAS AT

THAT TIME.

Reporter: THE VERY

NEXT DAY SHE RECEIVED A

$300 REFUND CHECK FROM HER

UTILITY COMPANY IN THE

MAIL.

I WAS, LIKE, WOW, GOD

REALLY DID PROVIDE.

Reporter: SHANTELLE

CONTINUED TO TITHE

FAITHLY.

AND I WAS TALKING TO MY

AUNT A FEW DAYS LATER, AND

SHE WAS, LIKE, I JUST

DECIDED I WANT TO PAY OFF

THAT $10,000 CREDIT CARD.

Reporter: SHANTELLE

WAS ELATED BY HER AUNT'S

GENEROSITY, BUT SHE SAYS

THE GIFT WAS ALSO A

CHALLENGE.

I WAS THINKING, I JUST

MADE THE COMMITMENT TO

START TITHING, AND NOW YOU

WANT ME TO GIVE 90% AWAY?

I WAS, LIKE, GOD, IF THIS

IS WHAT YOU'RE LAYING ON

MY HEART, I'M GOING TO DO

IT.

I'M GOING TO INCREASE MY

TITHE BY 3% EVERY YEAR.

Reporter: SIX MONTHS

LATER SHE RECEIVED A JOB

OFFER THAT DOUBLED HER

ANNUAL SALARY.

THEN IN 2005, HER INCOME

HAD ANOTHER DRAMATIC

INCREASE WHEN SHE LAUNCHED

A CAREER IN REAL ESTATE.

I SOLD MORE HOUSES IN

HAMPTON THAT FIRST YEAR AS

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR.

EVERYONE JUST REFERRED ME

BUSINESS.

IT WAS SUST A BLESSING.

Reporter: THE REST OF

HER SUCCESS STORY CAN BE

READ IN THE BOTTOM LINE OF

HER OWN REAL ESTATE

COMPANY LAUNCHED IN 2012.

SHE SAYS SHE GIVES ALL OF

THE CREDIT TO GOD.

THERE IS A VERSE IN

SAMUEL 3: 20, AND IT SAYS

TO THOSE WHO HONOR ME, I

WILL HONOR.

WE KEEP GIVING AND HE

KEEPS GIVING BACK.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

WORD FOR YOU, 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."

HERE IS SHANTELLE, WHO IS

MAKING $9 AN HOUR, AND SHE

SAYS, OKAY, GOD, YOU'RE

CHALLENGING ME TO TITHE,

AND I'LL DO THAT.

AND THEN SHE STARTS, THEN

SHE HEARS A MESSAGE ABOUT,

CAN YOU GET TO THE POINT

WHERE YOU CAN GIVE 90% OF

YOUR INCOME AWAY.

AND SHE SAYS, OKAY, I'LL

TAKE THAT STEP.

I'LL INCREASE YEAR BY YEAR

AND HAVE THAT AS MY

LIFETIME GOAL.

AND YOU SAW THE RESULTS.

TO THOSE WHO USE WELL WHAT

THEY ARE GIVEN -- AND SHE

DECIDED I'M GOING TO USE

WELL.

I'M GOING TO PUT IT INTO

THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND

THE RESULTS SPEAK FOR

THEMSELVES.

> WELL, TODAY MORE THAN

HALF OF AMERICANS ARE

LIVING PAYCHECK TO

PAYCHECK WITH LITTLE OR NO

SAVINGS.

AND 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.

SMARVETION I' Reporter: GARY AND

DEBRA WERE LIVING PAYCHECK

TO PAYCHECK.

UNTIL ONE SUNDAY MORNING

WHEN THEY HEARD THREE

SEPARATE MESSAGES ABOUT

ONE TOPIC: GIVING.

IT IS WASN'T OF THOSE

THINGS, OKAY, GOD, YOU

TOLD ME ONCE, YOU TOLD ME

TWICE, YOU TOLD ME THREE

TIMES.

I THINK I BETTER BE

LIVING.

THERE WAS NO ROOM IN

BLACK AND WHITE, IN THE

MATH, TO TAKE OUT 10%.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

PRAYED ABOUT IT AND THEN

DECIDED TO GIVE.

AT THE END OF THE FIRST

MONTH, SOMETHING AMAZING

HAPPENED.

WE HAD MONEY LEFT OVER.

I WAS, LIKE, OKAY, GOD, I

GET IT.

YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE CARE

OF US.

WE WENT FROM 100%, WITH NO

SAVINGS, TO LIVING OFF OF

90%, AND GOD STRETCHED

THAT 90% TO ALLOW US TO

START SAVING.

FROM THEN ON WE JUST KEPT

WRITING THAT CHECK, FIRST

THING.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

SAYS THAT THE LESSON 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.

SO WE LOADED MY YOUNG

FAMILY UP AND CAME TO WEST

TEXAS.

WE DIDN'T HAVE A PLACE

TO LIVE.

WE DIDN'T HAVE JOBS, SO

THAT WAS SCARY.

Reporter: THEY SOON

DISCOVERED DEBRA WAS

PREGNANT, BUT THEIR NEW

BUSINESS NEVER TOOK OFF.

WE HAD A USE A CREDIT

CARD FOR OUR MEDICAL

BILLS.

I BEGAN SUBSTITUTE

TEACHING.

DEBRA HAD BEEN SELLING

HEALTH SUPPLEMENTS, SO

THAT WAS AN INCOME FOR US.

AND THEN SHE GOT A JOB AT

GOLDGOLDS GYM IN AMARILLO.

WE WERE STILL TITHING AND

BEING FAITHFUL.

WITH KNEW GOD BROUGHT

US HERE.

HE IS GOING TO PROVIDE FOR

IS.

US.

I DON'T THINK WE WOULD

HAVE HAD THAT FAITH IF WE

HADN'T SEEN THAT WHEN WE

STARTED TITHING.

Reporter: GARY AND

DEBRA SAYS GOD BLESSED

THEIR FAITHFULNESS.

WE'D 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 US SOME MONEY

FOR HEALTH SUPPLEMENTS OR

FOR DEBRA'S TRAINING, AND

WE WOULD LOOK AT EACH

OTHER AND SAY, THANK YOU,

GOD.

Reporter: SOON GARY

WAS OFFERED A JOB AS A

HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL.

IN 2009 THEY DECIDED TO

BECOME CBN PARTNERS.

AND DEBRA NOTICEDED 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 WASED GOD.

THAIT WAS IT WAS

GOD.

THAT CONFIRMED, OKAY, YOU

WANT ME TO GIVE OUR MONEY

TO CBN.

Reporter: AND DEBRA

WAS THEN 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.

THE EXTRA INCOME ALLOWED

THEM TO PAY OFF THEIR

DEBT.

WE'RE DOWN TO OUR HOUSE

PAYMENT.

IT WILL BE PAID OFF IN

ABOUT FOUR YEARS.

AND WE'VE GOT ONE CAR

PAYMENT.

SO WE'RE GETTING CLOSE.

Reporter: GARY AND

DEBRA WANT OTHERS TO KNOW

THAT GIVING CHANGED MORE

THAN JUST THEIR FINANCES.

IT IS A LEAP OF FAITH,

BUT A WONDERFUL LEAP OF

FAITH.

THE BLESSINGS GOD HAS ARE

JUST INCREDIBLE.

Gordon: IT IS A LEAP

OF FAITH.

HERE IT IS 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 GARY AND DEBRA PUT IT

TO THE TEST.

AND YOU SAW THE RESULT.

GOD HONORS HIS WORD.

HE STANDS OVER IT TO

PERFORM IT, BUT IT TAKES

US TAKING THAT LEAP OF

FAITH.

I SPELL FAITH R-I-S-K.

IT'S WHEN YOU HAVE THAT

RISK AND YOU SAY, I JUST

YOU WITH MY FINANCES, AND

THAT'S WHEN THE BLESSINGS

COME.

> I'VE GOT SOME GREAT

NEWS.

SOME EXISTING CBN

PARTNERS, JUST LIKE THE

WONDERFUL COUPLE YOU JUST

SAW, FROM MISSOURI AND

TEXAS, THEY SAY THEY WANT

TO JOIN TOGETHER AND

CHALLENGE OTHERS TO GIVE.

SO THEY WILL MATCH YOUR

GIVING DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR

$149,000 UNTIL THE END OF

THE HOUR.

AND LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST ASK FOR

BLESSING OVER THIS.

AND WE ASK FOR INCREASE.

AND WE ASK FOR THE

INCREASE THAT COMES FROM

YOU, 30, 60, 100-FOLD.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

$149,000 IS THE CHALLENGE

AMOUNT.

42 MINUTES AND 12 SECONDS

IS THE CLOCK.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

$20 A MONTH.

SOME CAN JOIN AT "700

CLUB" GOLD, $40 A MONTH.

AND THEN WE HAVE THE

THOUSAND CLUB, AND THAT

BREAKS OUT TO $84 A MONTH.

AT WHATEVER LEVEL, NOW IS

THE TIME TO JOIN BECAUSE

YOU'LL BE AUTOMATICALLY

MATCHED, UP TO AND

INCLUDING $149,000.

SO CALL US NOW:

1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, WHEN YOU

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB," WE

WANT TO THANK YOU WITH

SOMETHING SPECIAL THAT WE

THINK WILL REVOLUTIONIZE

YOUR LIFE.

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON'S

BEST-SELLING SERIES, "THE

SECRET KINGDOM", AND

GORDON ROBERTSON'S

TEACHING ON "THE LAW OF

EXPECTATION."

WE'RE OFFERING THEM

TOGETHER ON ONE D.V.D.

TAKE A LOOK.

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

EXPECTATION."

Terry: THESE ARE

PRINCIPLES THAT GOD HAS

SET IN ORDER IN THE

UNIVERSE THAT WE LIVE IN.

DON'T YOU THINK WE ALL

SHOULD KNOW WHAT THEY ARE

SO THAT WE CAN LIVE

ACCORDINGLY AND BE BLESSED

ACCORDINGLY?

THAT'S WHY WE WANT THIS TO

BE YOURS WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT'S OUR WAY OF SAYING

THANK YOU FOR CARING.

SO YOU CALL NOW.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE:

1-800-700-7000.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"700 CLUB."

SEND "THE SECRET KINGDOM"

EXPECTATION" OUT TO YOU.

WE THINK YOU'LL REALLY BE

BLESSED BY THIS.

AND WE SAY THANK YOU.

Gordon: WHEN MIKE'S

SMALL BUSINESS SLOWED

DOWN, HIS SALARY

PLUMMETTED AND HE LOST

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.

BUT MIKE AND HIS WIFE HAD

AN UNUSUAL WAY TO DEAL

WITH THE SHORTFALL.

WITHIN A FEW MONTHS, THEY

GOT THEIR MONEY BACK AND A

LOT MORE.

Reporter: SINCE 1971,

MIKE AND LADELLE HAVE

SUPPORTED CBN.

LAST YEAR THEY DECIDED TO

INCREASE THEIR PLEDGE.

ONE WEEK LATER THEY WERE

CHALLENGED TO HONOR THAT

COMMITMENT.

MIKE HAD HIS OWN BUSINESS

SELLING INSURANCE, AND

SUDDENLY PEOPLE STARTED

CANCELLING THEIR POLICIES.

IT DROPPED OUR INCOME

ABOUT $2,000 A MONTH,

WHICH IS VERY SUBSTANTIAL,

BECAUSE, LIKE MOST PEOPLE,

WE STILL HAD HOUSE

PAYMENTS, WE HAD CAR

PAYMENTS, WE HAD OUR

MONTHLY OBLIGATIONS OF

INSURANCE AND THE LIGHT

BILL.

WE HAD ALL OF THAT.

IT WAS SCARY.

I REALLY HAD TO FIGHT THE

NEGATIVE THOUGHTS IN MY

MIND: YOU AREN'T GOING TO

MAKE IT.

YOU WON'T MAKE THE PLEDGE.

YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE

EVERYTHING.

IT'S LIKE THIS: YOU'VE

GOT DOUBT AND YOU'VE GOT

THE ANSWER.

WHICH ONE ARE YOU GOING TO

CHOOSE?

I CHOOSE THE ANSWER.

Reporter: MIKE AND

LADELLE HONORED THEIR

PLEDGE TO CBN AND A SHORT

TIME LATER, MIKE GOT A

SURPRISE PHONE CALL.

HE INHERITED A SMALL TRACT

OF LAND A FEW YEARS AGO

LEERL.

AGO.

AND NOW AN OIL COMPANY

WANTED TO BUY THE RIGHTS

TO THAT PROPERTY.

IN A FOUR MONTHS'

PERIOD, GOD SUPPLIED A

HALF MILLION DOLLARS.

OUR MOUTHS WERE JUST

OPEN.

WE WERE JUST STUNNED.

WE WERE SO EXCITED AND

JUST AMAZED AT WHAT GOD

WAS DOING IN OUR LIVES.

Reporter: NOT ONLY

DID THE MONEY COVER THEIR

PLEDGE, IT ALSO RESTORED

THEIR FINANCES.

AND THE MATERIAL WORLD,

YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN IT.

BUT IF YOU'RE A CHILD OF

GOD AND YOU HAVE THE

CONFIDENCE THAT HE IS

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF YOU,

YOU JUST KNOW THAT YOU

KNOW.

HE IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE

THERE FOR YOU.

HE'S ALWAYS GOING TO HELP

YOU.

HE'S GOING TO ALWAYS

GIVE BACK MORE TO YOU THAN

WHAT YOU GIVE TO HIM.

Reporter: SINCE THEN,

THEY HAVE GIVEN ABOVE AND

BEYOND THEIR PLEDGE.

THEY SAY GIVING IS MORE

THAN A RESPONSIBILITY;

IT'S A PRIVILEGE.

I HAVE TO DO FOR HIM.

I HAVE TO GIVE BACK TO

HIM.

MY OBLIGATION TO GOD IS TO

BE ABLE TO SHARE WITH

OTHER PEOPLE WHAT GOD CAN

DO.

Gordon: HERE IS WHAT

HE CAN DO, AND IT'S 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, HE WATERS

HIMSELF."

AND MIKE AND LADELLE

LEARNED THAT.

IT IS POSSIBLE TO GIVE

AWAY, AND GOD CREATED

MIRACLES FOR THEM,

FINANCIAL MIRACLES.

GIVE US A CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

PUT THE SAME PRINCIPLES

INTO PRACTICE.

THIS ISN'T SOME GET RICH

QUICK KIND OF THING.

IT IS A LIFETIME OF

GENEROSITY.

IT IS A LIFETIME OF

SAYING, GOD, I WANT TO

HONOR YOU WITH MY FIRST

FRUITS.

I WANT TO OBEY YOU.

I WANT TO TITHE.

I WANT TO BE PART OF

SEEKING YOUR KINGDOM

FIRST.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, THEN

THEE OTHER BLESSINGS GET

ADDED UNTO YOU.

AND GOD IS THE ONE THAT IS

ABLE TO GIVE YOU 30, 60,

100-FOLD INCREASES.

IF YOU WANT THAT, START

SAYING, I WANT TO RESOLVE

TO BE A GENEROUS AND

CHEERFUL GIVER.

GIVE US A CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: I WANT TO

RESOLVE TO BE A CHEERFUL

AND GENEROUS GIVER, AND

THAT'S A GREAT MANTRA FOR

2017.

> DID YOU WANT MORE

SUCCESS IN YOUR JOBS, YOUR

RELATIONSHIPS, AND EVEN

YOUR FINANCIAL

INVESTMENTS?

WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO GET

ALL OF THAT AND MUCH MORE

IN OUR LATEST D.V.D., "THE

SECRET KINGDOM" AND "THE

LAW OF EXPECTATION."

Pat: IT IS THE LAW

ESCONDIDOLAW OFRESIPROCITY.

IF YOU GIVE KINDNESS TO

SOMEBODY, YOU'LL GET

KINDNESS BACK.

IF YOU'RE MERCIFUL TO

SOMEBODY, YOU'LL GET

MERCIFUL BACK.

Wendy: HAVE FAITH IN

GOD.

BELIEVE HIM, TAKE GOD AT

HIS WORD AND SEE WHAT HE

WILL DO FOR YOU.

IT IS CALLED "THE LAW OF

EXPECTATION."

SOMETHING HAPPENS WHEN WE

EXPECT GOD TO MOVE ON OUR

BEHALF.

HE LOOKS DOWN AND SAYS,

OKAY, THEY'RE EXPECTING

IT, I'M GOING TO DO IT.

IT IS CALL "THE LAW OF

EXPECTATION."

AND WE WANT TO E ENCOURAGE

YOUR FAITH WITH "THE

SECRET KINGDOM" AND "THE

LAW OF EXPECTATION."

YOU CAN DISCOVER THE

SECRETS THAT UNLOCK

HAPPINESS, SUCCESS,

MIRACLES AND SO MUCH MORE.

IT IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU CALL AND SAY, YES, I

WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

$20 A MONTH IS ALL IT

TAKES TO BECOME A CBN

PARTNER.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CHALLENGE, $149,000 WITH

34 MINUTES LEFT O ON THAT

CLOCK.

THAT MEANS EVERY DOLLAR

WILL BE MATCHED DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR.

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN WE FIRST

MET BRIAN, HE WAS INJURED

AND HOMELESS, AND TRYING

TO SUPPORT HIS TWO LITTLE

GIRLS.

BUT THIS SINGLE DAD'S LIFE

HAS TURNED AROUND

COMPLETELY, AND IT IS ALL

BECAUSE OF HELP FROM

PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

Reporter: BRIAN AND

HIS TWO DAUGHTER, PEARL

AND DAISY, HAVE

EXPERIENCED HARD TIMES.

AND WE KEEP UP WITH

THAT BECAUSE THEIR MOTHER

LEFT US WHEN THEY WERE

THREE AND FIVE.

Reporter: SOON AFTER

BRIAN WAS INJURED ON THE

JOB AND COULD NO LONGER

WORK.

HE COULDN'T MAKE HIS RENT

PAYMENT, AND HIS YOUNG

FAMILY WAS EVICTED FROM

THEIR APARTMENTMENT.

>APARTMENT.

PEOPLE SAID, BRIAN, YOU

CAN'T DO THIS.

AND I SAID, I'M NOT GOING

TO LEAVE MY GIRLS BECAUSE

NOBODY GETS LEFT BEHIND.

DADDY IS NOT GOING

ANYWHERE.

UH-UH.

Reporter: WHILE HIS

DAUGHTERS SLEPT WITH

RELATIVES, BRIAN RODE HIS

BIKE AROUND TOWN LOOKING

FOR WORK.

I REALLY DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT WE WERE GOING TO DO.

I WAS GETTING PRETTY

DESPERATE.

Reporter: AFTER

MONTHS OF SEARCHING, BRIAN

LANDED A JOB, BUT HE AND

THE GIRLS STILL NEEDED A

PLACE TO LIVE.

WE GOT A CALL FROM

RIVER REFUGE.

IT WAS A BIG LOAD OFF MY

SHOULDERS.

MANY OF THESE FAMILIES,

THEY DON'T HAVE ANYBODY.

Reporter: STEPHANIE

KEK, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF

RIVER OF REFUGE IN KANSAS,

MISSOURI, MET BRIAN AND

HIS DAUGHTERS DURING THEIR

SEARCH FOR HOUSING.

THEY NEED LOVE AND

SUPPORT AND SOMEONE TO

BELIEVE IN THEM.

Reporter: RIVER OF

REFUGE PROVIDED BRIAN

TRANSITIONAL HOUSING TO

KEEP HIS GIRLS TOGETHER.

AND PEARL AND DAISY GOT

NEW CLOTHES AND SCHOOL

SUPPLIES.

I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT WHERE WE'RE GOING TO

STAY.

THE REST FALLS IN PLACE.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT

THE HOUSE IS PROBABLY MOST

OF THE STUFF WE DIDN'T

HAVE TO BUY.

Reporter: CBN HAS

COME ON BOARD WITH RIVER

OF REFUGE AND CONTINUES TO

HELP FAMILIES LIKE

BRIAN'S.

CBN HAS BEEN WONDERFUL.

GORDON HAS BEEN A GREAT

SUPPORT.

WE'RE TRYING SO HARD TO

CREATE THIS SAFE HAVEN FOR

THESE FAMILIES, TRULY THE

REF FUSED FOTHEREFUGE FOR THEM TO FEEL

SAFE AND TO FEEL LOVED.

I JUST GOT A PROMOTION.

I'M GETTING A RAISE.

OUR BLESSINGS ARE STARTING

TO COME IN.

Terry: I LOVE THIS

SINGLE DAD.

I LOVE HIS COMMITMENT TO

HIS CHILDREN.

I LOVE HIS WILLINGNESS TO

HAVE HIS OWN LIFE CHANGED.

TO HAVE GOD DO SOMETHING

IN HIM.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT GOD IS

OUR REFUGE.

I THINK IT IS SO

SIGNIFICANT THAT THIS

PLACE IS CALLED RIVER OF

REFUGE.

AND CBN HAS BEEN A PART OF

SUPPORTING THAT FOR SOME

TIME NOW.

IT IS DOING AN AMAZING

WORK.

WHEN WE SUPPORT IT, IT IS

BECAUSE OF YOU.

WE THANK YOU, "THE 700

CLUB" MEMBERS.

YOU'RE MAKING A HUGE

DIFFERENCE IN LIVES NOT

JUST AROUND THE WORLD, BUT

RIGHT HERE AT HOME IN THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

IF YOU HAVEN'T JOINED "THE

700 CLUB" YET, TODAY IS A

GREAT DAY TO DO IT.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CHALLENGE.

DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL BE

MATCHED DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU

RIGHT NOW.

WILL YOU GIVE US A CALL?

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE:

1-800-700-7000.

LET ME SHOW YOU THIS: IF

YOU'RE ALREADY A "700

CLUB" MEMBER, YOU CAN JUMP

UP TO THE GOLD LEVEL, $40

A MONTH.

IF YOU'RE A GOLD CLUB

LEVEL, WHY DON'T YOU

CONSIDER THE THOUSAND CLUB

AT $84 MONTH.

OUR FOUNDERS GIVE $5,000 A

YEAR, AND THAT BREAKS DOWN

TO $417 A MONTH.

AND WE EVEN HAVE A GROUP

OF PEOPLE WE CALL THE

CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE, FRIENDS

WHO GIVE GIFTS OF $10,000

OR MORE A YEAR.

ASK GOD WHAT HE WOULD HAVE

YOU DO, AND THEN JUST DO

IT.

TRUST HIM ENOUGH AND BE

OBEDIENT ENOUGH TO DO IT.

JUST KNOW GOD WILL BLESS

YOU BECAUSE OF YOUR

CONCERN ABOUT HELPING

OTHERS.

SO CALL NOW.

GORDON?

Gordon: 10-YEAR-OLD

LANEY KNOWS A LOT ABOUT

THE BIBLE, BUT UNTIL

RECENTLY, SHE HAD NEVER

BEEN TO CHURCH.

SHE HAS BEEN LEARNING

ABOUT GOD ALL BY HERSELF

WITH HELP FROM CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK."

Reporter: MEET LANEY.

SHE IS A 10-YEAR-OLD

ASPIRING ARTIST.

I LOVE TO DRAW HORSES

AND PEOPLE.

Reporter: ONE OF

LANEY'S FAVORITE PEOPLE IS

HER 80-YEAR-OLD NEIGHBOR,

SKIP, WHO IS NEARLY BLIND.

THEY HAVE A VERY SPECIAL

FRIENDSHIP THAT BEGAN WITH

THEIR MUTUAL LOVE FOR

ANIMALS.

I TOLD HER MOTHER AND

DAD, YOU DON'T HAVE TO

WORRY ABOUT HER OVER HERE

BECAUSE IF ANYONE BOTHERED

HER, I WOULD DIE FOR HER.

Reporter: AND HE

WANTED LANEY TO KNOW ABOUT

JESUS, THE MAN WHO DID DIE

FOR HER.

HE INVITED HER TO GO TO

CHURCH.

IN SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS

THAT DAY, LANEY AND THE

CHILDREN WATCHED AN

EPISODE OF "SUPERBOOK."

HER PASTOR NOTICED SHE HAD

A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE.

I SAID, LANEY, HOW MANY

TIMES HAVE YOU BEEN TO

CHURCH?

AND SHE SAID, WELL, THIS

IS MY SECOND TIME.

I SAID, HOW DO YOU KNOW

ALL ABOUT THIS?

AND SHE SAID I LEARNED IT

ALL ON THE "SUPERBOOK"

APP.

SHE KNOWS MORE ABOUT

THE BIBLE THAN I DO.

Reporter: LANEY

EXPLAINED A YEAR BEFORE A

CLASSMATE TOLD HER ABOUT

THE "SUPERBOOK" APP AND

SHE LOADEDED IT.

AND THEN SHE RESPONDED TO

AN INVITATION SHE SAW ON

THE APP.

IT SAYS, ARE YOU READY

TO ACCEPT GOD, AND I SAID

YES.

AND THEN THEY TOLD ME A

PRAYER TO SAY, AND SINCE

THEN, GOD IS IN MY HEART.

Reporter: LANEY LOOKS

FORWARD TO GOING TO CHURCH

EVERY WEEK WITH SKIP AND

LEARNING MORE FROM

"SUPERBOOK."

HER FAVORITE CHARACTERS

ARE GIZMO AND JOY.

YOU WOULDN'T EXPECT A

LADY TO BE STRONG, BUT SHE

IS REALLY STRONG.

Reporter: SHE SAYS

THE ROLE MODELS FOUND IN

"SUPERBOOK" WILL MAKE A

BIG DIFFERENCE IN LANEY'S

LIFE AND OTHER CHILDREN.

WE'RE ASKING GOD,

PLEASE BRING YOUR LOVE AND

YOUR LIGHT AND YOUR LOPE HOPE

TO THESE LITTLE KIDS, AND

GOD DID THAT FOR LANEY.

Reporter: LANEY WAS

RECENTLY BAP TIGHTEST, AND BAPTIZED, AND N OW

SHE TELLS EVERYBODY ABOUT

"SUPERBOOK" AND JESUS.

I TELL MY MOM AND DAD

THAT IT IS REALLY FUN AND

IT IS REALLY GOOD FOR ME

TO LEARN ABOUT GOD.

I'M SO THANKFUL FOR THE

"SUPERBOOK" APP.

SHE WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN

THE LORD WITHOUT

"SUPERBOOK."

I THINK IT IS THE BEST

THING THAT COULD HAPPEN TO

HER.

GORDON?

Gordon: NOT LONG AGO,

BRIAN WAS SO DEEP IN DEBT,

HE HAD TO DECIDE WHICH OF

HIS BILLS HE WAS GOING TO

PAY EACH MONTH.

HE WAS DOWN TO HIS LAST

$5.

BUT INSTEAD OF SPENDING

IT, HE USED IT TO HELP

PEOPLE WHO WERE EVEN WORSE

OFF THAN HE WAS.

Reporter: BRIAN WAS

MAKING A GOOD LIVING AT A

CHEF AT AN ITALIAN

RESTAURANT IN TEXAS.

BUT NO MATTER HOW MANY

HOURS HE WORKED, HIS BILLS

DID NOT GET PAID BECAUSE

OF ALCOHOL AND ADDICTIONS.

SO HE STARTED BORROWING

FROM HIS BOSS.

ONCE I BORROWED A

LITTLE FROM THE NEXT

PAYCHECK, I HAD LESS ON

THE NEXT ONE.

I KEPT HAVING TO BORROW

AND HAVING TO BORROW.

IT GOT TO THE POINT WHERE

I WAS DECIDING WHICH OF

THE UTILITIES WERE GOING

TO GET CUT OFF.

WATER WAS GETTING SHUT OFF

ON A REGULAR BASIS.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT

WHEN HE FELT LIKE HE

COULDN'T TAKE ANYMORE,

BRIAN BROKE DOWN AND

PRAYED.

I CRIED OUT TO GOD TO

KILL ME.

I ASKED HIM TO TAKE ME

HOME BECAUSE IF THIS WAS

MY LIFE, I DIDN'T WANT TO

BE HERE.

AS I WAS CRYING OUT TO

HIM, THAT'S WHEN I FELT

HIS ARMS WRAP ME UP AND

LIFT ME UP SAYING, YOU'RE

MY SON AND I'LL NEVER LET

YOU GO.

HE HAD BEEN RIGHT THERE

WITH ME THE WHOLE TIME.

AND I JUST HAD FAILED TO

SEE HIM.

Reporter: SUDDENLY

ALL OF BRIAN'S ADDICTIONS

WERE GONE.

HE HEALED ME IN A

SECOND.

IT WAS LIKE BEING ALIVE

FOR THE FIRST TIME.

Reporter: WITHOUT HIS

EXPENSIVE HABITS, HE WAS

BAG DOWN HIS DEBTS.

PAYING DOWN HIS DEBTS.

HE EVEN STARTED GIVING

MONEY AWAY.

I WAS DOWN TO MY LAST

FIVE BUCKS, AND I SAID,

LORD, THIS IS FOR YOU.

I ACTUALLY MAILED THAT

INTO CBN.

Gordon: HE SEES YOUR

HEART.

HE SEES YOUR PAIN.

HE SEES YOUR TEARS.

MY ONLY SOURCE OF

SPIRITUAL FOOD WAS

BASICALLY WATCHING PASTORS

ON TELEVISION AND WATCHING

CBN.

Reporter: HE STARTED

GOING TO CHURCH AND

TITHING AND CONTINUED TO

GIVE TO "THE 700 CLUB."

I JUST LOVED A LOT OF

THE MINISTRIES THAT I SAW,

WELLS BEING DUG FOR PEOPLE

IN THIRD-WORLD COUNTRIES

WHO HAD NOTHING, AND

SEEING THE WORK THAT

"OPERATION BLESSING" WAS

DOING ACROSS THE WORLD AND

RIGHT HERE AT HOME.

IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE I

COULD BE A PART OF THAT.

Reporter: BRIAN SAYS

AS HE GAVE, HE RECEIVED.

ONE OF THE MEMBERS OF

MY CONGREGATION DECIDED

SHE WAS GOING TO MOVE.

AND OUT OF NOWHERE, SHE

GAVE ME NEW FURNITURE.

SHE SAW ME IN NEED.

I WAS PAYING FOR A TAXI TO

GO TO AND FROM WORK, OVER

$200 A MONTH.

INSTEAD OF SELLING HER

CAR, SHE DECIDED JUST TO

GIVE IT TO ME.

Reporter: BRIAN STILL

WORKS AS A CHEF, AND HE IS

PURSUING A BACHELOR'S

DEGREE IN MINISTRY.

I WOULD LOVE TO

SPECIALIZE IN ADDICTION

MINISTRY.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE GET

THE SAME CHANCES THAT I

GOT.

Reporter: HE SAYS HE

HAS SEEN FIRSTHAND WHAT

TRUSTING GOD CAN DO FOR

YOUR LIFE.

WHEN HE SAYS, TITHE TO

ME, IT MEANS GIVE HIM YOUR

FIRST FRUITS.

HE DESERVES THE BEST.

HE GAVE HIS BEST.

HE SENT HIS SON.

HE SENT US HIS FIRST

FRUIT.

WHY SHOULDN'T WE GIVE IT

TO HIM?

Gordon: SEND HIM YOUR

FIRST FRUIT.

SEND HIM YOUR BEST.

LET IT BE SET APART FOR

GOD.

WHEN YOU DO THAT

CHEERFULLY, WHEN YOU DO

THAT WITH A SPIRIT OF

GENEROSITY, THEN WONDERFUL

THINGS START TO HAPPEN

BECAUSE GOD LOVES A

CHEERFUL GIVER.

WHAT HE DID FOR BRIAN,

HE'LL DO FOR YOU.

HE IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

HE WATCHES OVER HIS WORD

TO PERFORM IT.

IF YOU WANT TO START A

LIFESTYLE, A LIFETIME OF

GIVING, GIVE US A CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

AND JUST SAY, YES, I WANT

TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WHEN YOU CALL, MAKE SURE

YOU ASK FOR PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING, WHERE THE BANK

DOES ALL OF THE WORK.

AND WE SEND AS OUR GIFT TO

YOU, "POWER FOR LIFE."

SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE

THOSE, ASK FOR PLEDGE

EXPRESS WHEN YOU CALL.

I'VE GOT SOME WONDERFUL

NEWS.

SOME PARTNERS FROM

MICHIGAN SAY WE WANT TO

ADD TO THIS CHALLENGE.

THEY WANT TO ADD $60,000.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST ASK FOR

BLESSING OVER THIS.

WE ASK FOR BLESSING THE

PARTNERS FROM MICHIGAN AND

WE ASK FOR BLESSING FOR

THE DONORS WHO ARE CALLING

RIGHT NOW.

OPEN THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN

AND POUR OUT A BLESSING

THEY CANNOT CONTAIN.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

ALL IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

> WELL, WE'VE GOT A NEW

AMOUNT, $209,000.

AND WE'VE GOT 93,000 TO GO

SECONDS.

IT IS COMING DOWN -- IT'S

CALL US AND BE A PART OF

IT: 1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN LAURA AND

HER FAMILY FLED THE WAR IN

SYRIA, THEY LEFT BEHIND

THE ONLY HOME THEY HAD

NEVER KNOWN.

THEIR NEW LIFE IN A

REFUGEE CAMP LOOKED BLEAK,

UNTIL CBN GAVE THEM HELP

AND HOPE FOR A BETTER

FUTURE.

Reporter: LAURA AND

HER BROTHER, BALAL, WALK

THROUGH THIS REFUGEE CAMP

EVERY DAY.

THEY STRUGGLE TO GET BY

EVERY DAY SINCE THE WAR

ENGULFED THE CITY IN SYRIA

AND THEIR FATHER WAS

KILLED.

I GET REALLY SAD WHEN I

HEAR OTHER GIRLS SAYING,

DADDY, DADDY, BECAUSE I

CAN'T SAY THAT ANYMORE.

WE BARELY MADE IT OUT

OF SYRIA, BUT LIFE HERE

HAS BEEN VERY HARD.

WE CAME WITH NOTHING, AND

WE RELY ON THE CHARITY OF

OUR NEIGHBORS TO SURVIVE.

Reporter: LAURA'S

MOTHER TOLD US ONE OF HER

BIGGEST WORRIES NOW IS HER

CHILDREN'S FUTURE.

IT HURTS LAURA NOT

BEING ABLE TO GO TO

SCHOOL.

SHE IS SUCH A SMART CHILD.

I JUST WANTED HER AND

BALAL TO DO ALL OF THE

THINGS I DID NOT.

Reporter: WE INVITED

THE CHILDREN TO ATTEND OUR

SCHOOL CENTER.

HERE THEY'RE LEARNING

MATH, ARABIC, ENGLISH, AND

MUSIC.

AND THEY'RE ALWAYS TAUGHT ALSO TAUGHT

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST.

IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY TO

KNOW THAT JESUS LOVES US.

JESUS IS MY GOD AND HE

WILL NEVER LEAVE US.

I TRY TO BE LIKE HIM.

I LIKE WRITE AND COLOR

AND PLAY WITH MY FRIENDS,

AND I REALLY LIKE TO SING

SONGS ABOUT JESUS.

Reporter: AND AT THE

CENTER, WE ALSO SHOW

"SUPERBOOK" IN ARAB.

I GET EXCITED LEARNING

ABOUT GOD.

I GO HOME EACH DAY AND

TELL MY MOM EVERYTHING I

HAVE LEARNED.

MY KIDS TELL ME ABOUT

JESUS CHRIST ALL THE TIME.

AND WHEN I'M FEELING

DEPRESSED, THEY SAY I

SHOULD PRAY, SO I DO.

IT FEELS GREAT.

Reporter: AND EVERY

MONTH "HEART FOR LEBANON"

AND "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

GIVE FOOD TO LAURA'S

FAMILY AND THOUSANDS OF

OTHER REFUGEES.

I CAN'T THANK "HEART

FOR LEBANON" AND "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" FOR EVERYTHING

THEY HAVE DONE FOR US.

THEY ARE HELPING US,

LIKE GOD TEACHES US TO

HELP OTHERS.

DEAR GOD, PLEASE BLESS AND

TAKE CARE OF THE ORPHANS

OF SYRIA.

AND PLEASE, GOD, BLESS THE

CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE OPENED

THIS SCHOOL.

PLEASE BLESS THEM AND GIVE

THEM FAITH.

AMEN.

Terry: CAN YOU

IMAGINE WHAT IT IS LIKE TO

LOSE EVERYTHING?

TO BE A WIDOW, RAISING

YOUR CHILDREN, AND NOW

YOU'RE IN A STRANGE

COUNTRY LIVING INTENTS AND

JUST TRYING TO SURVIVE AND

FIND FOOD FOR YOUR KIDS.

RIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE OF

THAT HOPELESSNESS, "700

CLUB" MEMBERS CAME WITH

THEIR KINDNESS, WITH THEIR

GENEROSITY, AND WITH THEIR

PROVISION.

WE SAY THANK YOU.

THIS FAMILY NOW HAS HOPE

FOR THE FUTURE.

THE MOM NO LONGER FEELS

GORDON?

Gordon: AS A MARINE

IN COMBAT, NED IS TRAINED

TO HANDLE TOUGH

SITUATIONS.

WHILE HE IS OVERSEAS, HIS

WIFE FACES A DIFFERENT

CHALLENGE AT HOME:

FIGURING OUT HOW TO PAY

THE BILLS.

Reporter: IN THE

MIDST OF WAR, NED'S JOB IS

TO CAPTURE FOOTAGE AND

PHOTOS OF COMBAT WHERE

VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL

FILCIVILIAN REPORTERS ARE NOT

ALLOW TO GO.

I HAVE STEPPED ON A

BOMB THAT DID NOT GO OFF.

THE ONLY REASON I'M HERE

IS BECAUSE GOD HAS PLANS.

Reporter: NED DEPENDS

ON HIS WIFE TO HANDLE THE

HOUSEHOLD.

WITH TWO KIDS AND ONE ON

THE WAY, HE FEELS HER JOB

IS JUST AS IMPORTANT.

IT IS ALMOST

UNBELIEVABLE WHAT SHE IS

CAPABLE OF DOING.

I FEEL LIKE SHE GENUINELY

CAN HANDLE ANYTHING.

THERE IS A SENSE OF

NATIONAL PRIDE THAT COMES

WITH BEING MARRIED TO

SOMEONE WHO CHOOSES TO

MAKE THAT SACRIFICE.

Reporter: MELISSA

STARTED TAKING ONLINE

COURSES TO GET HER MEDICAL

LICENSE.

ON TOP OF THAT, THE COUPLE

HAD TO OPEN A CREDIT CARD

TO PAY FOR MOVING EXPENSES

THE MILITARY DIDN'T COVER

WHEN THEY TRANSFERRED TO

CAMP LEJUNE.

WE REALIZED WE WERE

USING CREDIT CARDS TO PAY

FOR THINGS LIKE GROCERIES

BECAUSE WE JUST WEREN'T

GETTING BY.

PANIC REALLY KIND OF

SETS IN.

THE HUGE PICTURE OF

EVERYTHING THAT SEEMS TO

BE FALLING APART ALL AT

ONCE.

Reporter: EVEN AFTER

NED TOOK ON A SECOND JOB

DELIVERING PIZZA, THE

COUPLE COULDN'T GET AHEAD.

THEY PRAYED THAT GOD WOULD

GET THEM THROUGH THE

FINANCIAL CRISIS.

SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY

SOMETHING IS COMING THAT

IS GOING TO GET US OUT OF

THIS.

GOD ISN'T FINISHED AND

ISN'T JUST STANDING AROUND

WAITING FOR US TO WALLOW

INTO SELF-PITY.

Reporter: THEIR

CHURCH CONTACTED CBN AND

ASKED FOR HELP.

I WAS JUST SO THANKFUL

THAT "HELPING THE

HOMEFRONT" IS WILLING TO

BE AN AGENT FOR GOD IN

EXPRESSING HIS KINDNESS

AND HIS GENEROSITY.

Reporter: CALVARY

CHAPEL'S PASTOR GREG

SCHMIDT TOLD THEM CBN WAS

PAYING FOR THE MOVE AND

PAYING PART OF MELISSA'S

TUITION.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT

TO SAY.

THANK YOU -- I GUESS I'LL

START THERE.

Reporter: PASTOR GREG

HAD ONE MORE SURPRISE.

AND WE HAVE A FINANCIAL

MENTOR TO HELP YOU GET ALL

OF THESE THINGS FREE.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO

THAT?

I GUESS YOU CAN SAY GOD

IS GOOD.

YEAH.

REALLY, REALLY GOOD.

Reporter: NED AND

MELISSA MET WITH A

FINANCIAL ADVISOR AND

MAPPED OUT A PLAN TO GET

THEM THROUGH UNTIL MELISSA

GETS HER DEGREE.

AND THEY GOT THEIR BUDGET

IN LINE JUST IN TIME FOR

THE BIRTH OF THEIR SON.

I FEEL LIKE THE BIGGEST

BURDEN IS LIFTEDED.

MIRACLES AREN'T JUST

SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED A

LONG TIME AGO IN THE

BIBLE.

MIRACLES HAPPEN TODAY.

AND ON OUR LATEST D.V.D.,

PAT ROBERTSON REVEALS THE

SECRET TO SEEING THEM IN

YOUR LIFE.

Terry: MINT IS A

YOUNG, SIN SING GAL MOM SINGLE MOM WHO

ENJOYS HERE BABY BOY.

WHEN 20-YEAR-OLD MINT

LOOKS INTO HER BABY'S

EYES, SHE CAN'T HELP BUT

SMILE.

WHEN I WAKE UP IN THE

MORNING, I LOOK AT HIM.

WE SMILE AT EACH OTHER AND

WE KISS.

I'M SO HAPPY.

Terry: MINT HAS BEEN

KEEPING TRACK OF KIM'S

GROWTH THIS YEAR WITH

PHOTOS AND VIDEOS.

BUT ALMOST OF THIS ALMOST

NEVER HAPPENED BECAUSE AN

AUNT PRESSURED HER TO GET

AN ABORTION.

I WAS SO SCARED.

MY PARENTS DIDN'T KNOW I

WAS PREGNANT.

I DIDN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT

RAISING A CHILD AT THAT

POINT.

Terry: THEN MINT MET

SOME PEOPLE FROM A

MINISTRY SUPPORTED BY

CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

WE PROVIDED HER WITH A

PLACE TO LIVE AND HELPED

HER DECIDE TO KEEP HER

BABY.

THE HOUSE MOM THERE

BECAME LIKE A MOTHER TO

ME.

WHEN I HAD PROBLEMS, I

COULD TALK TO HER.

SHE LOVED ME LIKE A

DAUGHTER, TOO.

Terry: THANKS TO THE

SUPPORT AND LOVE SHE

RECEIVED THERE, MINT

PRAYED TO BECOME A

CHRISTIAN AND DECIDED TO

RAISE HER SON.

I DECIDED TO BELIEVE IN

JESUS.

HE IS REAL, AND HE WILL

HELP ME.

Terry: TO HELP MINT

SUPPORT HERSELF AS A

SINGLE MOM, "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" TAUGHT HER HOW TO

SEW.

AND WE GAVE HER A NEW

SEWING MACHINE.

NOW I MAKE CLOTHES

USING THE SEWING MACHINE,

AND I REPAIR CLOTHING.

I NOW HAVE MONEY TO FEED

AND TAKE CARE OF BOTH OF

US.

Terry: RECENTLY, MINT

WAS ABLE TO MOVE INTO A

PLACE OF HER OWN.

MY LIFE IS BETTER NOW.

I HAVE A JOB AND I CAN

TAKE CARE OF MYSELF AND

KIM.

THANK YOU, "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," FOR HELPING ME

TO DO WORK THAT I LOVE.

AND THANKS FOR LETTING ME

HAVE MORE TIME WITH MY

SON.

Terry: WHAT A

DIFFERENCE YOU MADE IN

THEIR LIVES.

DID YOU NOTICE THAT LITTLE

CIRCLE OF MOMS WITH

CHILDREN THAT MINT WAS

SITTING IN?

YOU TOUCHED EVERY ONE OF

THEIR LIVES, THE MOMS AND

THE CHILDREN.

WE SAY THANK YOU.

THAT'S JUST ONE WAY THAT

YOU ARE CHANGING PEOPLE'S

LIVES AROUND THE WORLD.

YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T PUT A

PRICE TAG ON HOPE OR ON A

HAND-UP.

A LOT OF PEOPLE JUST NEED

A SIMPLE HAND-UP, AND

YOU'RE PROVIDING THAT.

WOULD YOU HELP US WITH

THAT?

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB" TODAY.

AND WHEN YOU JOIN AT

TEACHINGS.

WE THINK THEY WILL BLESS

YOU.

WOULD YOU CALL US NOW?

Gordon: IN CAMBODIA,

ONE SINGLE MOTHER WAS SO

POOR THAT SHE HAD TO FEED

HER CHILDREN WEEDS JUST TO

SURVIVE.

SO WHEN WE MET THIS

DESPERATE FAMILY, WE GAVE

THEM MORE THAN JUST FOOD.

WE ALSO GAVE THEM A WAY TO

REBUILD THEIR LIVES.

Terry: EVERY MORNING

AT 4:00 A.M. CHANU WENT

WITH HIS MOM TO WORK AT

THIS MEAT PROCESSING

FACILITY IN CAMBODIA.

HE DROPPED OUT OF SCHOOL

TO HELP, EVEN THOUGH HIS

MOM WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO

GOT PAID.

BECAUSE OF CHANU'S

HELP, I EARNED A LITTLE

MORE MONEY.

WITHOUT HIS HELP, WE WOULD

ALL STARVE AND DIE.

Terry: STILL, SHE

ONLY EARNED $15 FOR A 13

HOUR SHIFT.

WE NEVER HAVE

BREAKFAST.

Terry: SOMETIMES THEY

RESORTED TO EATING WEEDS

FROM A SWAMP JUST TO

SURVIVE.

ONE DAY CHANU WAS SO

HUNGRY, HE STOLE A BONE TO

MAKE SOUP FOR HIS FAMILY.

WHEN THE BOSS CAUGHT

ME, I FELT SO ASHAMED AND

I CRIED.

Terry: THEN CHANU'S

MOM GOT FIRED.

WE LEFT THE PLACE

FILLED WITH SHAME.

Terry: SHE WAS OUT OF

WORK FOR MONTHS, AND FOOD

WAS EVEN MORE SCARCE.

SHE TRIED TO GET A JOB AT

A SEWING FACTORY WHERE SHE

ONCE WORKED BUT IT HAD

SHUT DOWN.

FIRST WE GAVE THE FAMILY A

SUPPLY OF FOOD.

AND THEN WE GAVE HER A NEW

SEWING MACHINE AND

SUPPLIES TO START A

BUSINESS.

WITH THE MACHINE, I AM AM

REPAIRING CLOTHES AND I

MAKE LOTS OF KIDS'

INCORPORATES, LIKE UNIFORMS, LIKE I DID IN

THE FACTORY.

Terry: CHANU HAS NOW

GONE BACK TO SCHOOL WITH A

UNIFORM MADE BY HIS MOM,

AND HIS GRADES ARE

SOARING.

AND THE FAMILY PRAYED TO

BECOME CHRISTIANS.

CBN'S "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" GAVE US A SEWING

MACHINE, FOOD, AND

UNIFORMS.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

FOR HELPING US WITH

EVERYTHING.

Gordon: THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "700

CLUB," THANK YOU.

BECAUSE YOU'RE PART OF

BLESSING THAT FAMILY.

GIVING THEM A HAND-UP, NOT

JUST A HANDOUT.

YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US: 1-800-700-7000 AND

SAY, YES, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

FITNESS CHAIN.

WHAT'S THE SECRET OF HIS

IT IS OUR GIFT WHEN YOU

GORDON?

Gordon: EVERY DAY

JANA'S PARENTS HAD TO

WATCH THEIR 8-YEAR-OLD

DAUGHTER BEING BULLIED

BECAUSE OF HER CROSSED

EYES.

THEY COULD BARELY AFFORD

TO SEE A DOCTOR, SO

SURGERY WAS OUT OF THE

QUESTION.

UNTIL THEY VISITED CBN'S

MOBILE MEDICAL CLINIC.

Reporter: JANA'S MOM

NOTICED HER DAUGHTER'S EYE

TURNING INWARD AT SIX

MONTHS OLD.

BY THE TIME JANA TURNED

EIGHT, HER CONDITION HAD

GOTTEN WORSE.

I HAVE A HARD TIME

READING.

I OFTEN HAVE HEADACHES.

Reporter:

UNFORTUNATELY, THE KIDS AT

SCHOOL DIDN'T MAKE LIFE

ANY EASIER FOR HER.

ONE BOY KEPT CALLING ME

CROSSED EYES.

SOMETIMES HE WOULD COME UP

AND JUST PUNCH ME.

Reporter: JANA'S DAD

IS A DELIVERY MAN AND HER

MOM WORKS AS A COOK.

TOGETHER THEY FINALLY

SAVED ENOUGH TO TAKE JANA

TO AN OPHTHALMOLOGIST.

BUT THEY COULDN'T AFFORD

THE CORRECTIVE SURGERY

THAT THE DOCTOR

RECOMMENDED.

IT BREAKS MY HEART TO

SEE MY DAUGHTER SUFFER

FROM HEADACHES AND

BULLYING IN SCHOOL.

Reporter: IN

DESPERATION, HER PARENTS

TOOK HER TO CBN'S MOBILE

MEDICAL CLINIC, HOPING WE

COULD HELP.

THERE WE ARRANGED FOR HER

TO RECEIVE FREE SURGERY TO

REPAIR THE WEAKENED EYE

MUSCLES.

JANA HAS RETURNED TO

SCHOOL AND HAS HAD NO MORE

PROBLEMS WITH EYE STRAIN.

I AM HAPPY THAT MY EYES

ARE STRAIGHT NOW AND I

WON'T BE BULLIED ANYMORE.

I AM GRATEFUL THAT GOD

SENT CBN TO HELP OUR

DAUGHTER.

THANK YOU TO THE DOCTOR

AND CBN.

Gordon: THANK YOU.

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ARE

CALLING.

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ARE

GIVING.

YOU'RE PART OF IT.

YOU'RE PART OF TAKING THE

GOSPEL AROUND THE WORLD.

YOU'RE PART OF HELPING

PEOPLE IN REMOTE AREAS.

YOU'RE PART OF SAYING,

YES, GOD LOVES YOU AND WE

LOVE YOU, TOO.

IT IS WONDERFUL WHEN WE

ALL JOIN TOGETHER TO SAY,

YES, WE CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

YOU CAN STILL GET IN ON

THIS CHALLENGE:

1-800-700-7000.

THREE SECONDS LEFT ON THAT

CLOCK.

AND WE'RE COUNTING DOWN TO

VICTORY.

WE'VE GONE OVER THE TOP.

IT WAS ABSOLUTELY

WONDERFUL.

$209,000, AND AGAINST THAT

YOU GAVE $292,000.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PHILIPPIANS 4:

"BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING,

BUT IN EVERYTHING, BY

PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION,

WITH THANKS, MAKE YOUR

REQUESTS BE KNOWN TO GOD."

FROM TERRY AND ALL OF US,

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU ON MONDAY.
