The 700 Club - September 11, 2017

Molly was like many college students who thought credit cards gave you free money. She was wrong. After drowning in $36,000 of debt, Molly experienced intense anxiety. Then she learned a new way to tackle debt. See what she did. Read Transcript


WELCOME TO THE "700

CLUB".

IRMA WEAKENED INTO A

TROPICAL STORM

MONDAY MORNING. IT WAS A

MAJOR

HURRICANE MORE THAN 400

MILES WIDE.

TODAY PEOPLE ARE JUST

BEGINNING TO

RECOVER FROM THIS MASSIVE

STORM..

CBN'S "OPERATION

BLESSING" WAS ON

THE SCENE BEFORE IRMA

ARRIVED TO

HELP. GARY LANE BRINGS US

THIS STORY

FROM ALCALA, FLORIDA..

IRMA MADE LANDFALL AS A

CATEGORY 4

HURRICANE LEADING STORM

SURGES AND

SPIN OFF TORNADOS.

AS HURRICANE IRMA MOVED IN,

MANY

SOUGHT REFUGE LIKE AT THIS

SCHOOL IN

ALCALA. WE HELPED MANY OF

THOSE WHO

WERE IN NEED AND HELPED

DELIVERING

ITEMS AT VAN GUARD HIGH

SCHOOL.

THIS IS A DOG FRIENDLY

ENVIRONMENT

AND THERE IS ABOUT 1100

PEOPLE WITH

ABOUT 400 DOGS..

HE SAID I SAW YOUR TRUCK

OUT ON

24TH STREET AND WE HAVE THIS

WAREHOUSE STANDING HERE. I

SAID IS

THERE ANYTHING YOU NEED IN

THE

SHELTER THAT YOU DON'T HAVE.

WHAT DO YOU NEED?

WHAT I REALLY NEED IS

SOME SNACKS.

THERE ARE LOTS OF KIDS IN

THERE.

AND EVEN.

YOU LIKE SNACKS, DON'T

YOU?

I DO TOO. IT MAY NOT BE

HEALTH

FOOD BUT WE ALL NEED SNACKS.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

DELIVERED

DRINKING WATER AND SUGAR

FREE POWER

AID.

IT'S A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY TO

MAKE SURE THEY CAN SIT BACK

AND TAKE

A DEEP BREATH AND RELAX AND

HAVE THAT

SNACK, HAVE THAT POWER AID..

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

READY TO

DELIVER MORE HELP.

ONCE IT CLEARS, WE CAN

HELP SEND

MORE TRUCKS TO THE

MINISTRIES AND THE

PLACES THAT NEED IT THE

WORSE..

"OPERATION BLESSING"

ISN'T WAITING

UNTIL IRMA PASSES TO OFFER

HELP TO

THE PEOPLE IN FLORIDA. THEY

ARE

HELPING REFUGEES AND

EVACUEES THAT

ARE LIVING IN SHELTERS IN

THE STATE.

ONCE THE HURRICANE DOES

PASS, THAT'S

WHEN THE REAL WORK WILL

BEGIN.

Gordon: GARY LANE JOINS US

NOW LIVE

FROM ORLANDO.

GARY, WHAT ARE THE

CONDITIONS THERE

TODAY?

Gary: WELL, GORDON, THE

WIND HAVE

DIED DOWN TO 55 MILES AN

HOUR.

BUT THE REAL CONCERN IS IN

--

NORTHERN FLORIDA THAT IS

STILL

GETTING HAMMERED A BIT AND

THERE ARE

STILL TORNADOS.

THE WORSE WILL BE IN NAPLES

AND THE

ISLANDS. A LOT OF PEOPLE

WERE PRAYING

AND PRAYERS WORK. IT COULD

HAVE BEEN

MUCH MUCH WORSE.

ARE YOU THERE FOR THE

REST OF THE

WEEK?

WELL, THEY CAN'T REALLY

GO

ANYWHERE RIGHT NOW TODAY

BECAUSE

THERE IS A CURFEW IN PLACE

UNTIL

ABOUT 6:00 P.M.. SO,

AUTHORITIES ARE

URGING PEOPLE TO STAY OFF

THE ROADS,

THIS -- THEY HAVE TO ASSESS

ONLY

EMERGENCY VEHICLES ALLOWED

ON THE

ROADWAYS. THAT ENDS AROUND

6:00 P.M.

ONCE THAT'S OVER, THEY CAN

ASSESS THE

NEEDS AND THEY HAVE PASTORS

IN PLACE

IN THE COMMUNITY.

THEY KNOW WHERE THE NEED IS

AND MANY

TRUCKS ALREADY. WITH 350,000

BOTTLED

WATER AND MANY SUPPLIES

WHERE NEEDED.

WE'LL BRING THAT TO YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Gordon: IF YOU ARE A

MEMBER OF THE

"700 CLUB", THAT'S YOUR

GIFTS IN

ACTION AS WE ARE PREPARED TO

PROVIDE

HURRICANE RELIEF TO THE

PEOPLE IN

FLORIDA.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH

MORE OF THE

"700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: FROM FASHION TO

TIPS ON

MOTHERHOOD, MOLLY TALKS

ABOUT IT ALL.

NOW SHE WANTS TO SHARE SOME

ADVICE

THAT RESCUED HER FROM

$36,000 OF DEBT.

HEY, GUYS, MOLLY

STILLMAN..

MOLLY IS A PROFESSIONAL

FASHION

BLOG. SHE HAS A FOLLOWING AS

A

STAY-AT-HOME MOM..

SHE WAS DROWNING IN

$36,000 OF

CREDIT CARD DEBT.

I WAS TERRIFIED.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS

GOING TO DO.

WHEN MOLLY WAS IN

COLLEGE, SHE

SIGNED UP FOR CREDIT CARDS

AND WHEN

THINGS GOT TOUGH, SHE

STARTED

SHOPPING.

WHEN YOU START WITH A

$10,000

LIMIT, YOU ARE LIKE, I HAVE

$10,000

TO SPEND..

WHEN MOLLY STARTED HER

ENTRY LEVEL

JOB, SHE STRUGGLED TO PAY

HER BILLS.

I CAN'T RECALL HOW MANY

TIMES I

WOULD WITHDRAW ON MY ACCOUNT.

SHE STARTED LOOKING FOR

WORK AS

SHE WAS IN TROUBLE.

I STARTED TO LOOK AT THE

MISTAKES

I MADE LITERALLY GLARING AT

ME IN THE

FACE.

SHE CUT DOWN EXPENSES AND

SOLD HER

POSSESSIONS AND BEGAN TO GET

ITEMS

FROM THE FOOD BANK.

I WAS WORKING FOUR JOBS

AND BARELY

MAKING ENDS MEET, IT REALLY

STARTS TO

WEAR YOU DOWN.

SHE DECIDED TO ATTEND

CHURCH WITH

HER BOYFRIEND..

I STARTED TO DO THINGS MY

WAY FOR

A LONG TIME AND LOOK WHERE

IT GOT ME.

I SAID, ALL RIGHT, GOD, I

WILL DO

THINGS YOUR WAY..

SOON HER PASTOR GAVE A

SERMON

ABOUT TITHING..

I REMEMBER HEARING HIM

SAY GIVE

10% OF YOUR INCOME BACK TO

GOD AND

YOU WILL HAVE A BLESSING

THAT YOU

CAN'T EVEN STORE THEM ALL.

AFTER THAT, THEY DECIDED

TO GIVE

$50..

I DECIDED TO SURRENDER MY

WALLET

TO GOD..

THAT INCLUDED A BUDGET

THAT

INCLUDED GIVING.

SHE SAID, THERE IS NO

DOUBT.

I'M GOING TO TITHE.

A FEW WEEKS LATER, I

RECEIVED A

BONUS AT WORK..

SHE WOULD TITHE WITH HER

FIRST

BONUS CHECK..

AS I STARTED TO GIVE

MORE, I

STARTED TO SEE A DIRECT

CORRELATION

IN THE BLESSINGS I WAS

RECEIVING. I

RECEIVED ANOTHER BONUS AT

WORK, I GOT

A RAISE..

INEVITABLY WHEN SHE WOULD

PAY HER

TITHES, SOMETHING ELSE WOULD

HAPPEN..

IN THE FOLLOWING YEAR,

MOLLY

RECEIVED A JOB THAT WOULD

DOUBLE HER

SALARY..

HE HAD BEEN SO FAITHFUL

THE WHOLE

TIME..

MOLLY PAID OFF HER CREDIT

CARD

DEBT AND BECAME MS. JOHN

STILLMAN.

SHE QUIT HER JOB AND BEGAN

TO

DEDICATION ALL OF HER

EFFORTS TO HERE

BLOG..

WHEN I SAW HER GIVE HER

FINANCES

TO GOD, I CAN SEE THE CHANGE

TO

TITHING. HE SAYS, TRUST ME

IN THIS

AND SEE IF I DON'T THROW

OPEN THE

FLOOD GATES OF BLESSINGS.

IT WAS ABOUT TAKING THAT

ACT OF

FAITH. WHEN I REALLY DID NOT

KNOW HOW

IT WAS GOING TO WORK. WHEN

THE LORD

SAID TRUST ME, I DID AND HE

PROVED

FAITHFUL.

Gordon: IT WAS AN ACT OF

FAITH. WE

DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND HOW

IT'S

GOING TO WORK OUT. THAT'S

FAITH. I

LIKE TO SPELL FAITH, RISK,

WHEN YOU

BELIEVE GOD AND YOU BELIEVE

HIS

WORDS. MOLLY HAD A SPECIAL

TEACHING

FROM GOD WHERE THERE'S THIS

JAR WHERE

HE CALLS IT HERE ARE THE

THINGS YOU

NEED TO DO.

I CALL IT THE 80/10/10 RULE.

YOU HAVE

A BUDGET AND 80% IS WHAT YOU

ARE

GOING TO LIVE ON. YOU ARE

NOT GOING

TO LIVE ON CREDIT CARDS.

SOME OF US

TAKE PLASTIC SURGERY AND WE

DON'T

WANT TO LIVE ON CREDIT CARDS

AND BUY

THINGS AND PAY IT OVER TIME.

NO, LIVE

ON YOUR MEANS. LIVE ON THAT

80%. THE

SECOND PIECE, 10% NEEDS TO

GO INTO

SAVINGS. YOU HAVE TO PAY IT

YOURSELF.

IF YOU ARE NOT SAVING FOR AN

EMERGENCY FUND, NOT SAVING

FOR

RETIREMENT, YOU ARE NOT

SAVING FOR

YOURSELF. THE WHOLE PURPOSE

OF

WORKING IS TO HAVE A LIFE

AWAY FROM

WORK AND SAVE FOR THE FUTURE

AND

THOSE SPECIAL THINGS YOU

WANT. 10%.

YOU'VE GOT TO PAY YOURSELF.

AND FIRST

AND FOREMOST, LET IT BE FOR

LAST. 10%

AS A TITHE WHERE YOU GIVE

AND YOU DO

IT CHEERFULLY. YOU DON'T DO

IT FROM A

SENSE OF OBLIGATION. YOU DO

IT

BECAUSE YOU HAVE FAITH IN

GOD THAT HE

WILL WATCH OVER HIS WORD.

WE CALL IT THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY.

WHERE IF YOU PUT IT INTO

MOTION. YOU

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

IF YOU FOLLOW THESE

PRINCIPLES AND

THE SAME THING THAT HAPPENED

TO

MOLLY. THOUSANDS, TENS OF

THOUSANDS

OF DOLLARS IN CREDIT CARD

DEBT ALL

TAKEN AWAY.

IT WASN'T THAT SHE WASN'T

WORKING

HARD. SHE HAD FOUR OTHER

JOBS.

IT'S BECAUSE SHE WASN'T

PUTTING GOD

FIRST AND WASN'T LIVING

WITHIN HERE

MEANS. WHEN SHE STARTED

THOSE THINGS,

THAT'S WHEN CHANGE HAPPENED..

WHEN AARON AND SABRINA

MARTIN SAID

GOD IS THE LORD OF THE

HARVEST, THEY

MEAN THAT LITERALLY. THE TWO

SAW

THEIR CASH CROP WITHER AWAY

AND THEY

STARTED TO TRUST GOD. HERE

IS WHAT

HAPPENED NEXT..

AARON AND SABRINA MARTIN

WERE

DOING WELL WITH THEIR FARM

AND

SUPPORTING THEIR FAMILY IN

WYOMING

AND THEN THEY WERE CLEANED

OUT BY AN

AGGRESSIVE DISEASE.

AS A CONVENTIONAL FARMER

YOU CAN

SPREAD THIS ORGANIC AND

THERE WAS

NOTHING YOU CAN DO.

WE HAD 1 YEAR NO CROP AT ALL.

THE MARTIN'S RELIED ON

THEIR

HARVEST TO KEEP FOOD ON THE

TABLE.

WITHOUT THIS CASH CROP, THEY

COULDN'T

BRING FOOD TO THE TABLE..

WITHOUT THIS INCOME, WE

ARE NOT

GOING TO HAVE ANY.

DESPITE THEIR HARDSHIP,

THEY

DIDN'T STOP GIVING TO THEY

ARE CHURCH

AND THE MINISTRY OF THE "700

CLUB"..

YOU SEE ALL THEY DO. THE

SURGERY

FOR THE CLEFT PALATE.

AS A FARMER, ALL MY TIME

IS HERE

AND WHAT I CAN DO THAT IS

THROUGH THE

"700 CLUB"..

1 DAY THE MARTIN'S WENT

TO CHURCH

AND QUIETLY TOOK A SEAT IN

THE BACK

ROW..

ALL OF A SUDDEN THE

PASTOR STOPS

THE WORSHIP SERVICE AND

SAYS, I WOULD

LIKE TO HAVE AARON AND

SABRINA COME

UPFRONT. WE THOUGHT, WHAT IN

THE

WORLD? WE GO UPFRONT AND HE

SAID,

THE HOLY SPIRIT JUST TOLD ME

WHATEVER

YOU GUYS ARE DEALING WITH IS

SOMETHING HUGE THAT HE'S GOT

YOUR

BACK AND HE'S GOING TO TAKE

CARE OF

IT.

JUST KEEP YOUR EYES ON HIM.

WE INTO

-- KNEW AT THAT MOMENT WE

WERE GOING

TO BE ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU,

LORD, I

KNOW THIS HARVEST IS COMING..

EVEN AS THEY LOOKED AT

THE CROP,

AARON DECIDED TO CHECK THE

FIELD ONE

MORE TIME..

I GOT THERE AND I PULLED

UP THAT

HEAD, THAT HEAD WAS FULL OF

CURLS

FROM BOTTOM TO TOP.

THAT YEAR WAS ONE OF THE

LARGEST

AND HIGHEST QUALITY WHEAT

CROPS IN

THE AREA AND TURNED MARTINS

TOP

DOLLAR.

IT HAD TO HAVE BEEN A

MIRACLE

BECAUSE IT WASN'T SUPPOSED

TO HAPPEN.

IT'S GOD'S GRACE. IT'S THE

ONLY WAY

THAT WE WOULD HAVE PRODUCED

WHAT IT

DID.

WE ALSO BELIEVE THAT

MIRACLE CAME

BECAUSE THEY NEVER STOPPED

GIVING..

EVEN THROUGH LAST YEAR,

THAT NEVER

CROSSED MY MIND TO STOP

TITHING OR

SHORT TITHING. ANY OF THAT.

THERE'S

NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.

I WASN'T GOING TO STOP

TITHING

REGARDLESS..

IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING, IT

DOESN'T

MEAN THAT GOD HAS LEFT YOU.

IT MEANS THAT YOU CHOSE

WHAT'S BEST..

HE'S WAITING FOR YOU TO

RELY ON

HIM. HERE IS FROM MATTHEW 6,

DON'T

WORRY ABOUT FOOD AND

CLOTHING, YOUR

HEAVENLY FATHER WILL GIVE

YOU YOUR

NEGLIGENT -- NEEDS FROM

DAY-TO-DAY

IF YOU ARE GIVING TO HIM.

AARON AND

SABRINA WERE LOOKING AT A

LOST WHEAT

HARVEST. THAT'S WHAT THEY

USE TO PAY

THEIR BILLS. GOD SHOWED UP

FOR THEM.

HE THERE SHOW UP FOR YOU AND

WATCHES

YOUR WORDS TO PERFORM IT. I

HAVE

PARTNERS THAT LOVE TO GIVE

TO CBN AND

WANT TO CHALLENGE OTHERS TO

GIVE.

AT THE END OF THE HOUR THEY

WILL

MATCH YOUR GIVING DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR,

$125,000.

LET'S PRAY, LORD, WE ASK FOR

A

BLESSING OVER THIS AN WE ASK

FOR

INCREASE.

THE KIND OF INCREASE THAT

COMES FROM

YOU AT 30, 60, 100 FOLD.

BLESS THE

PARTNERS THAT MADE IT

POSSIBLE TO

ISSUE THIS CHALLENGE AND FOR

THOSE

WATCHING MAKING DECISIONS,

BLESS

THEM, SPEAK TO THEM, FOR WE

ASK IT

ALL IN IN IN JESUS' NAME,

AMEN.

Gordon: SABRINA AND BRUCE

WERE

NEVER ON THE SAME PAGE ABOUT

MONEY.

FOR SABRINA IT WAS ALL ABOUT

SECURITY. FOR BRUCE, TOTAL

CONTROL

WAS KEY. THEN 1 DAY AT TAX

TIME,

THEIR EYES WERE SUDDENLY

OPEN AND

THIS MARRIED COUPLE FINALLY

BECAME A

TEAM..

WHEN BRUCE AND SABRINA

MARRIED,

THEY BROUGHT DIFFERENT

EXPECTATIONS

ABOUT MONEY TO THE ALTER.

IT WAS THE SECOND MARRIAGE

FOR BOTH

AND SABRINA HAD STRUGGLED

FOR SEVERAL

YEARS AS A MOTHER.

I GREW UP VERY POOR. I

SAW WHAT

MONEY WAS. SECURITY WAS A

BIG DEAL

FOR ME..

BRUCE CAME FROM A POOR

BACKGROUND

TOO.

THE STRUGGLES HE EXPERIENCED

LED TO

MONEY IN THE FUTURE.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I

HAD

ENOUGH. I WAS AFRAID THE

BILLS

WEREN'T GOING TO BE PAID. I

WAS IN

CONTROL AND PROTECTING UP

FUNDING..

THEY BOTH HAD JOBS THAT

PAID WELL.

THE BRUCES DECIDE TO HANDLE

THEIR

FUNDS SEPARATELY.

I KNEW THE BILLS WOULD BE

PAID,

BUT IT WASN'T MINE.

I WAS TOO MUCH IN

CONTROL..

WHEN THEY PAID THEIR

TAXES

TOGETHER, THEY WERE ASHAMED

ABOUT

WHAT THEY DISCOVERED.

THE ACCOUNTANT ASKED US,

I HAVE

YOUR DOCUMENTS BUT I DID NOT

RECEIVE

YOUR CHARITABLE

CONTRIBUTIONS.

THAT WAS EMBARRASSING AND

I FELT I

HAD DISAPPOINTED GOD.

THAT WAS AN -- AWAKENING.

WHY NOT WANT THAT TO HAPPEN

AGAIN.

BRUCE AND SABRINA WERE

CHRISTIANS

BUT THEY DIDN'T PUT TITHING

INTO

PRACTICING.

IT WAS A PART OF MY FAITH

I WASN'T

DOING.

I CAN TRUST YOU WITH

EVERYTHING BUT

THIS.

BRUCE AND SABRINA BEGAN

TO TITHE.

I THOUGHT WE FINALLY ARE

ON THE

SAME TEAM, WE HAVE THE SAME

GOAL..

THEY DECIDED TO BECOME

MEMBERS.

WHENEVER THEY WERE OUT

WITH

"SUPERBOOK", I THOUGHT THEY

ARE

MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND

CHANGING

LIVES.

I STARTED TO PAY

ATTENTION AT HOW

THEY WERE HELPING PEOPLE

THAT WERE

DESPERATE AND I CAN FEEL THE

COMMITMENT THAT THEY HAVE IN

SAVING

PEOPLE.

IT WAS OVERWHELMING..

AFTER TITHING FOR SEVERAL

MONTHS,

SABRINA AND BRUCE STARTED TO

SEE

CHANGES IN THEIR FINANCES.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW

THIS

HAPPENED..

SHE WOULD SAY. DO YOU THINK

IT'S GOD?

I SAID, WELL, I DO NOW.

THEY DECIDED TO INCREASE

THEIR

GIVING TO CBN.

THAT WAS A PROBLEM FOR ME

BECAUSE

HIM NOT WANTING TO PART WITH

MONEY, I

KNEW WHAT HE HAD ARRIVED TO

MAKE

THAT DECISION..

THEY DECIDED TO GIVE TO

CBN AGAIN.

BRUCE DECIDED TO MAKE

ANOTHER DEAL

AND THEIR INCOME IMPROVED BY

33%..

I THINK IT'S A DIRECT

RESULT FROM

GIVING. I THINK HIM YIELDING

TO THE

MONEY WITH THE LOWERED AND

TO ME HAS

OPENED THE FLOOD GATES.

IT USED TO BE ABOUT

MONEY, NOW

IT'S ABOUT MY RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE

LORD.

I HAVE LEARNED TO TRUST.

THE TREASURES THAT ARE GIVEN

TO YOU

ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH YOUR

OBEDIENCE

TO HIS WORD. YOU CANNOT OUT

BLESS

GOD.

Gordon: I LOVE THIS STORY.

HIS

ACCOUNTANT ASKED WHERE ARE

YOUR

CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS.

IT EMBARRASSED HIM. HOW DID

I

DISAPPOINT GOD? HOW DID I

LET THIS

HAPPEN? LET'S GO BACK TO

GENESIS AND

HERE IS THE FIRST OFFERING

EVER MADE.

IT'S THE STORY

WHEN THE COUPLE CAME HOME

3 WEEKS

LATER, THEY WERE IN FOR A

BIG

SURPRISE.

I SEE IT NOW. THANK YOU

VERY

MUCH.

IT WAS ALMOST MORE THAN

YOUR HEART

CAN TAKE. YOU JUST DIDN'T

KNOW HOW TO

DEAL WITH IT.

EMOTIONALLY, AND

GRATEFULNESS AND

APPRECIATION THE ALL THE

PEOPLE THAT

DID THE WORK.

WHEN I WALKED IN THIS

AFTERNOON, I

REALLY DIDN'T BELIEVE THAT

WAS MY

HOUSE.

OH, IT'S BEAUTIFUL. I WONDER

WHERE IT

ALL CAME FROM AND WHO WOULD

DO SUCH A

THING. UNBELIEVABLE..

WITH YOUR SUPPORT,

"OPERATION

BLESSING" WILL CONTINUE

HELPING

PEOPLE LIKE THEM AROUND THE

WORLD IN

TIMES OF DISASTER.

ANYBODY THAT HAS DONATED

TO

"OPERATION BLESSING" OR

CONTINUE TO

DONATE TO MAKE PEOPLE'S

LIVES FEEL

MORE BLESSED, HOW WONDERFUL,

AND HOW

WONDERFUL THAT ALL OF THESE

VOLUNTEERS DO THE WORK

GRATIS AND

HAVE A SMILE ON THEIR FACE

AND LOVE

IN THEIR HEART.

Terry: THAT'S YOU, CBN

ANSWERED HER PRAYERS..

I WAS BLESSED TO KNOW MY

FOR US. THANK YOU, CBN CLUB

MEMBERS.

THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE DOING

HERE AND

AROUND THE WORLD. GORDON?

Gordon: HE'S A HARD

WORKING SINGLE

FATHER, BUT WHEN JOBS ARE

SCARCE, HE

GOES WITHOUT FOOD HIMSELF.

BUT THANK

GOD THEY NO LONGER HAVE TO

GO WITHOUT

FOOD..

HE BECAME A SINGLE FATHER

OF THREE

AFTER HIS WIFE DIED TO

CANCER..

1 DAY, MY FATHER DIDN'T

EAT..

SANTOS SOLD EVERYTHING

AND NOW HE

WAS FORCED TO MOVE AROUND

AND PROVIDE

A PLACE TO LIVE AND WORK..

HE ALWAYS TAKES US WITH

HIM SO WE

ARE SAFE..

WHEN SOMEONE WANTED TO

HIRE ME, I

SAID I HAVE TO TAKE MY

CHILDREN WITH

ME BECAUSE I CANNOT LEAVE

THEM ALONE..

SANTOS FOUND A PLACE TO

LIVE IN

EXCHANGE TO CARE FOR A

LANDOWNERS

COW, BUT HE NEEDED A STEADY

INCOME

FOR FOOD AND MEDICINE.

AFTER "OPERATION BLESSING"

CAME, WE

GAVE HIM FOOD AND GAVE HIM

CHICKENS

TO RAISE AND SELL.

THEY GAVE ME A CHICKEN

FARM. I

COULDN'T BELIEVE IT..

I HELP HIM WITH THE

CHICKENS AND

GIVE THEM WATER..

I NOW MAKE $150 FROM THE

CHICKEN

FARM..

HE TAKES CARE OF CHICKENS

AND WE

ARE NOT HUNGRY ANYMORE. WE

ARE HAPPY.

CHILDREN GIVING THANKS TO

GOD

BECAUSE YOU CARED ENOUGH TO

GIVE.

JUST IMAGINE THAT. WE HAVE

33 SECONDS

LEFT IN THIS WONDERFUL

CHALLENGE. WE

ARE GOING WAY OVER-THE-TOP

ON THIS.

BUT YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT.

TOLL-FREE PHONE NUMBER:

1-800-700-7000.

AND WE ARE HEARING FROM

SHEPHERDSVILLE, KENTUCKY,

SOMEONE

CALLING IN TODAY SAYING

INCREASING TO

$6960.

AND FROM MISSOURI, SOMEONE

INCREASING

$6,000.

WE ARE OUT OF TIME ON THE

CHALLENGE.

IT'S BEEN A WONDERFUL DAY.

WE HAVE A $280,000 CHALLENGE

AND

AGAINST THAT YOU GAVE

$222,000. WE

LEAVE YOU WITH THESE WORDS

FROM

HEBREW. FAITH IS THE

SUBSTANCE OF

THINGS HOPED FOR. THE

EVIDENCE OF

THINGS NOT SEEN. GOD BLESS

YOU. WE'LL

SEE YOU BEGIN TOMORROW.
