The 700 Club - September 15, 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

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

FLORIDA STILL HAS A VERY

LONG WAY TO GO TO RECOVER

FROM HURRICANE IRMA.

MANY HOMES -- THE MOST OF

THEM DON'T HAVE POWER AND

MANY ARE STILL COVERED BY

FLOODWATERS.

Terry: THAT'S RIGHT.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS GOING

TO SEE THE DEVASTATION

FROM IRMA FIRSTHAND WHEN

HE VISITED NAPLES

YESTERDAY.

CBN'S "OPERATION BLESSING"

WAS ALSO THERE, BRINGING

FOOD, WATER, AND OTHER

SUPPLIES TO THOSE WHO ARE

IN NEED.

GARY LANE HAS THIS STORY.

Reporter: IN FORT

MYERS, THE PRESIDENT

PRAISED GOVERNMENT

RESPONDERS WHO ACTED

SELFLESSLY TO SAVE LIVES

IN THE HURRICANE.

President Trump:

PEOPLE THOUGHT THOUSANDS

AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

MAY HAVE THEIR LIVES

ENDED, AND THE NUMBER IS A

VERY SMALL NUMBER, WHICH

IS A GREAT TRIBUTE TO YOU.

Reporter: THEN IN

NAPLES, THE PRESIDENT AND

FIRST LADY RECEIVED A WARM

GREETING AND CHEERS AS

THEY ARRIVED AT A MOBILE

HOME PARK.

THEY LOOKED OVER THE

DAMAGE AND LISTEN O ED T LISTENED TO

RESIDENTS TELL THEIR

STORIES ABOUT WHAT

HAPPENED DURING THE STORM.

AND THEN THEY SERVED UP

HOAGIES FOR LUNCH.

LET'S MAKE AMERICA

GREAT AGAIN.

President Trump: COME

HERE.

GOD BLESS YOU.

I GOT THAT.

TAKE ANOTHER ONE.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT OFFERED WORDS OF

ASSURANCE THAT AMERICA

WON'T FORGET FLORIDA.

President Trump: I

JUST WANT TO TELL YOU, WE

ARE THERE FOR YOU 100%.

I'LL BE BACK HERE NUMEROUS

TIMES.

THIS IS A STATE THAT I

KNOW VERY WELL, AS YOU

UNDERSTAND.

AND THESE ARE SPECIAL,

SPECIAL PEOPLE.

AND WE LOVE THEM.

THANK YOU.

Reporter: FLORIDIANS

WERE ENCOURAGED TO SEE

PRESIDENT TRUMP SERVING UP

MEALS TO THE PEOPLE OF

NAPLES, BUT PERHAPS MORE

ENCOURAGING WAS TO KNOW

THAT CBN'S "OPERATION

BLESSING" WAS ON THE

GROUND HERE IN FLORIDA

LONG BEFORE IRMA ARRIVED.

BEFORE IRMA THREATENED

FLORIDA, O.B. HAD ITS

DISTRIBUTION HOUSE IN

OCALA.

TRUCKS WERE LOADED AND

READIED.

PARTNERING WITH LOCAL

CHURCHES, O.B. HAS ALREADY

DELIVERED WATER, FOOD, AND

OTHER SUPPLIES TO 10 OF

FLORIDA'S HARDEST HIT

CITIES.

IN NAPLES ON THURSDAY, A

TEAM OF VOLUNTEERS

UNLOADED AN O.B. TRUCK,

FILLED WITH ITEMS LIKE

FOOD AND WATER.

JODY GETTYS IS "OPERATION

BLESSING" VICE PRESIDENT

FOR U.S. DISASTER RELIEF.

NAPLES IS KNOWN AS ONE

OF THE WEL WEALTHIEST CITIES

IN AMERICA, BUT IT

REPRESENTS SOME OF THE

POOREST CITIES IN AMERICA.

SO IT IS VERY DIVERSE.

TODAY WE'RE DELIVERING

THOUSANDS OF POUNDS OF

PRODUCT, EMERGENCY FOOD

AND SUPPLIES.

Reporter: THE READY

TO EAT MEALS ARE COOKED

WITHOUT ELECTRICITY.

THESE ARE COMPLETE

KITS.

SPAGHETTI AND MEATBALLS,

AND WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT

THIS IS THAT IT HAS THE

WATER THAT YOU NEED TO

POUR ON TO THE HEATING PAD

TO ACTIVATE IT.

AND YOU SLIP IT INSIDE OF

THESE BOXES AND THAT

BECOMES AN OVEN.

Reporter: THIS PASTOR

THOALTOLD US HOW RESIDENTS

REACTED WHEN THEY RECEIVED

ANOTHER HARD TO GET ITEM:

BOTTLED WATER.

THE PEOPLE WERE CRYING,

HUGGING US, AND TRYING TO

PAYING US.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT MONEY.

THIS IS ABOUT MEETING THE

NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE BODY

OF CHRIST IS ALL ABOUT.

Reporter: A DONATION

FROM KUAUI MADE THE

DISTRIBUTION POSSIBLE.

THE PASTOR SAYS IT IS

IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE TO

DEMONSTRATE CARE AND

CONCERN FOR OTHERS IN

NEED.

TO BE ABLE TO HELP TAKE

CARE OF PEOPLE, THAT'S

WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT IN

THE BODY OF CHRIST.

AND WE'RE SO GRATEFUL TO

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND

CB"700 CLUB" AND WE'RE SO

BLESSED TO BE PARTNERING

WITH YOU TO SEE ALL THAT

GOD IS GOING TO DO.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS, FLORIDA.

Gordon: AND WHILE

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS IN

FLORIDA, WE'RE ALSO IN

MEXICO, IN ONE OF THE

HARDEST HIT AREAS AFTER

THAT 8.1 EARTHQUAKE LAST

WEEK.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

PROVIDING FOOD, MEDICAL

CARE, AND HELP FOR THE

ELDERLY.

AND WE'RE STILL IN TEXAS,

HELPING PEOPLE IN MORE

THAN A DOZEN CITIES WHO

WERE HIT BY HURRICANE

HARVEY.

AND THERE IS AN URGENT

NEED NOW FOR VOLUNTEERS

FOR TEXAS.

SO IF YOU WANT TO BE PART

OF THE "OPERATION

BLESSING" TEAM PROVIDING

RELIEF IN TEXAS, ALL YOU

HAVE TO DO IS GO TO THEIR

WEBSITE,

OB.ORG,AND

YOU CAN FIND MORE

INFORMATION ABOUT HOW YOU

CAN VOLUNTEER THIS

WEEKEND.

> WE'LL BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVEOF "THE 700 CLUB."

Gordon: FROM FASHION

TO TIPS ON MOTHERHOOD,

MOLLY STILLMAN BLOGS ABOUT

IT ALL.

NOW SHE WANTS TO SHARE THE

ONE PIECE OF ADVICE THAT

RESCUED HER FROM $36,000

OF CREDIT CARD DEBT.

HEY, GUYS, IT IS MOLLY

STILLMAN.

Reporter: MOLLY

STILLMAN IS THE HOST OF A

SUCCESSFUL LIFESTYLE AND

FASHION BLOG.

SHE HAS A LOYAL FOLLOWING

OF STAY-AT-HOME MOMS AND

EVEN CORPORATIONS.

BUT A FEW YEARS AGO, SHE

WAS A DEPRESSED 20

SOMETHING, DROWNING IN

$36,000 OF CREDIT CARD

DEBT.

I WAS TERRIFIED.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS

GOING TO DO.

Reporter: HER

FINANCIAL CRISIS STARTED

IN COLLEGE.

SHE SIGNED UP FOR TEMPTING

CREDIT CARD OFFERS.

WHEN CLASSES GOT TOUGH,

SHE WENT SHOPPING TO

RELIEVE STRESS.

WHEN YOU'RE 18 AND YOU

SEE A CREDIT CARD WITH A

$10,000 LIMIT, YOU'RE

LIKE, I HAVE $10,000 TO

SPEND.

EACH MONTH IT WAS A

LITTLE MORE DIFFICULT TO

PAY THOSE BILLS.

Reporter: MOLLY BEGAN

WORKING SIDE JOBS TO TRY

TO MAKE EXTRA MONEY.

BUT BEFORE LONG THE

FINANCIAL PRESSURE BECAME

OVERWHELMING.

I STARTED LOOKING AT

THE NUMBERS, AND IT WAS

ALMOST AS IF THEY WERE

COMING OFF OF THE PAGE

BECAUSE I COULD SEE THE

MISTAKES I HAD MADE, LIKE,

LITERALLY GLARING ME IN

THE FACE.

Reporter: MOLLY

SOUGHT FINANCIAL

COUNSELLING AND BEGAN THE

SLOW PROCESS OF PAYING

DOWN HER DEBT.

SHE CUT EXPENSES, SOLD HER

POSSESSIONS, AND EVEN GOT

GROCERIES FROM A FOOD

BANK.

BUT DESPITE HER EFFORTS,

SHE SAYS SHE STILL FELT

HELPLESS.

I WAS REACHING THIS

BREAKING POINT BECAUSE

WORKING FOUR JOBS AND

BARELY MAKING ENDS MEET

REALLY STARTS TO WEIGH YOU

DOWN.

Reporter: THAT'S WHEN

MOLLY AGREED TO ATTEND

CHURCH WITH HER NEW

BOYFRIEND, JOHN.

I TRIED TO DO

EVERYTHING MY WAY FOR A

REALLY LONG TIME, AND LOOK

WHERE IT GOT ME.

I SAID, ALL RIGHT, GOD,

I'M GOING TO DO THINGS

YOUR WAY.

Reporter: SEVERAL

WEEKS LATER, THE PASTOR

GAVE A SERMON ABOUT

THINKING ANTITHING AND GIVING.

I REMEMBER HEARING

GIVING 10% OF YOUR

EARNINGS.

Reporter: THE NEXT

SUNDAY SHE GAVE HER FIRST

OFFERING OF $50.

I SURRENDERED NOT JUST

MY HEART, BUT MY WALLET,

TO GOD.

SHE DECIDED, I'M

FOLLOWING JESUS NOW.

FOR HER THERE WAS NO

DOUBT.

I'M PAYING THE TITHES, AND

IT IS GOING TO BE A STEP

OF FAITH.

A FEW WEEKS LATER, I

RECEIVED MY FIRST BONUS AT

WORK.

Reporter: SO MOLLY

TITHED ON HER FIRST BONUS

CHECK AND INCREASED HER

GIVING AGAIN.

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 THEY

WOULD PAY HER TITHE,

SOMETHING WOULD HAPPEN.

Reporter: THE

FOLLOWING YEAR MOLLY

RECEIVED A JOB OFFER THAT

DOUBLED HER ANNUAL SALARY.

I REALIZED HE HAD BEEN

TRUE TO HIS WORD.

HE HAD BEEN SO FAITHFUL

THE WHOLE TIME.

Reporter: MOLLY PAID

OFF ALL HER CREDIT CARD

DEBT AND BECAME MRS. JOHN

STILLMAN.

MOLLY WAS ABLE TO QUIT HER

DAY JOB AND DEVOTE ALL HER

EFFORTS TO HER LUCRATIVE

BLOG.

MOLLY AND JOHN CONTINUED

TO GIVE GENEROUSLY AS A

COUPLE BECAUSE THEY KNOW

GIVING IS THE KEY TO

SUCCESS.

WHEN I SAW HER REALLY

SURRENDER HER FINANCES TO

GOD, I COULD VERY TANGIBLY

SEE THE CHANGE FROM NOT

TITHING TO TITHING.

MY MESSAGE TO PEOPLE IS:

TAKE GOD AT HIS WORD.

HE SAYS, TRUST ME IN THIS

AND SEE IF I DON'T THROW

OPEN THE FLOODGATES 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: WHEN THE LORD

SAID, TRUST ME, I DO.

DID.

AND HE PROVED FAITHFUL.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

THIS STORY THAT I

ABSOLUTELY LOVE.

THERE IS A VERY SIMPLE

PRINCIPLE IN IT.

AND I CALL IT: 80-10-10.

WHERE YOU RESOLVE YOU'RE

GOING TO LIVE ON 80% OF

YOUR INCOME.

SO 80% OF YOUR INCOME GOES

INTO YOUR EXPENSES, AND

THAT EXPENSE INCLUDES

PAYING DOWN THE CREDIT

CARDS.

AND THEN 10% YOU'VE GOT TO

PAY YOURSELF.

YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE

SAVINGS.

AND FROM THAT 10% OF

SAVINGS, YOU FIRST NEED TO

CREATE AN EMERGENCY FUND.

SO IF SOMETHING

CATASTROPHIC HAPPENS, ARE

YOU GOING TO HAVE THE CASH

AVAILABLE IN ORDER TO GET

OUT OF THE EMERGENCY.

AND THEN ONCE THE

EMERGENCY FUND IS FUNDED,

THEN YOU NEED TO START

SAVING FOR YOUR FUTURE AND

SAVING FOR RETIREMENT AND

SAVING FOR INVESTMENTS.

PAY YOURSELF.

AND FIRST AND FOREMOST,

10% GIVE AWAY, TITHE.

AND WHEN YOU START GIVING,

THEN THE THE LONG

RECIPROCITY KICKS IN.

IN.

THESE ARE THE WORDS OF

JESUS: GIVE AND IT WILL BE

GIVEN UNTO YOU.

WE HAVE TO INITIATE IT AND

THEN THE BLESSINGS COME.

WHAT HAPPENED TO MOLLY

CONVINCED JOHN, AND LET IT

CONVINCE YOU.

THE SAME THING WILL HAPPEN

TO YOU IF YOU FOLLOW THAT

SAME PRINCIPLE.

> WHEN STEVE AND JANET

MET, THEY WERE THE PERFECT

MATCH IN EVERY WAY, EXCEPT

IN HOW THEY MANAGED THEIR

MONEY.

STEVE HAD CREDIT CARD

BILLS AND OWED BACK TAXES,

AND JANET WASN'T USED TO

LIVING IN DEBT.

SO THE COUPLE SOUGHT THE

HELP OF AN ACCOUNTANT.

SURPRISINGLY, HE ADVISED

THEM TO INCREASE THEIR

GIVING AND BEFORE LONG

THEY WERE DEBT-FREE.

Reporter: WITHIN

MONTHS OF MEETING STEVE STEVE

SAYER, JANET KNEW SHE MET

HER MATCH.

HE LOVED GOD, OWNED HIS

OWN BUSINESS, AND LIKED

NICE THINGS.

WE LOVED TO GOLF.

WE LOVED TO JUST GO AWAY.

Reporter: SO THE TWO

MARRIED AND DIDN'T THINK

TWICE ABOUT THEIR

FINANCIAL SITUATION OR

WHAT THEIR LIFESTYLE MIGHT

COST THEM.

I JUST MET THE LOVE OF

MY LIFE.

I WASN'T GOING TO PUT THE

BRAKES ON MY LIFE.

Reporter: BUT NOT TOO

LONG AFTER THEIR

HONEYMOON, MONEY BECAME A

BIG ISSUE IN THEIR

MARRIAGE.

THAT'S WHEN SHE STARTED

ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT,

WELL, WHAT IS THIS BILL?

HOW MUCH DO YOU OWE?

Reporter: STEVE HAD

CREDIT CARD BILLS AND OWED

BACK TAXES BEFORE

MARRIAGE, AND HE WAS ALSO

$3,000 SHORT ON PAYROLL.

JANET WAS USED TO LIVING

IN DEBT TO SUPPORT HER

LIFESTYLE.

I PAID MY BILLS AND I

PAID MY CREDIT CARDS.

EVERYTHING WAS ALWAYS ON

TIME.

I HAD QUITE A FEW YEARS

OF HAPHAZARD LIVING, NO

FINANCIAL PRINCIPLES

WHATSOEVER.

Reporter: UNABLE TO

LIVE THE WAY THEY WANTED

TO WHEN ON THEIR COMBINED

INCOME, THE SAYERS WERE

SOON $65,000 IN DEBT.

I WAS FEELING PRETTY

OUT OF CONTROL WITH THE

FINANCES.

THERE WERE NIGHTS WHEN I

COULDN'T SLEEP.

AND IT WAS VERY HARD

BECAUSE MY HUSBAND AND I

DIDN'T COMMUNICATE THAT

WELL, WHEN IT CAME TO

FINANCES.

IT WAS MORE JUST ME

SHUTTING DOWN OR GETTING

TO A PLACE OF AVOIDANCE.

Reporter: JANET

PRAYED AND ALSO CONVINCED

STEVE TO FINALLY SEE AN

ACCOUNACCOUNTANT.

WE WERE AT THE POINT

WHERE SOMETHING HAD TO BE

DONE.

I WAS, LIKE, WE CAN'T BE

LIVING THIS WAY.

IT WAS A PLACE OF

VULNERABILITY TO ME, TO

SAY, OKAY, NO LONGER WILL

I HIDE BEHIND THE PRIDE OF

I'LL FIX WHATEVER IS

WRONG.

Reporter: THE

ACCOUNTANT GAVE THE COUPLE

A FINANCIAL PLAN THAT

INCLUDED DEBT REDUCTION,

PRACTICAL BUSINESS

MANAGEMENT, AND EVEN

THOUGH THEY WERE TITHING

AT CHURCH, ADVISED THEM TO

START GIVING EVEN MORE TO

SEE HOW GOD WOULD RESPOND.

DID IT MAKE SENSE?

PROBABLY NOT TO MOST.

BUT IT MADE SENSE TO ME TO

THE POINT WHERE I COULD

FULLY COMMIT AND KNOW THE

LORD WOULDN'T FAIL ME.

Reporter: SOON STEVE

WAS GIVEN A $75,000

ROOFING CONTRACT OUT OF

THE BLUE.

JANET STARTED GETTING

CONSISTENT RAISES,

PROMOTIONS.

THE TWO WERE ALSO BLESSED

IN OTHER WAYS.

WE HAD A COUPLE THAT

PAID OUR MORTGAGE ONE

MONTH.

THE MORE WE INCREASED

IN OUR GIVING, THE MORE

ABUNDANT OF GOD'S

PROVISION.

IT WAS BEAUTIFUL TO BE

ABLE TO SEE THINGS LIKE

THAT HAPPEN, KNOWING THAT

GOD HAD OUR BACKS WHEN HE

HAD OUR HEARTS.

Reporter: STEVE AND

JANET PAID OFF THEIR

$65,000 DEBT, WHILE THEY

INCREASED WHAT THEY GAVE

AT CHURCH EACH YEAR AND

BECAME CBN PARTNERS.

THEY ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO

STOP LIVING ON DEBT AND

GIVE INSTEAD.

WALK IN FAITH, NOT IN

FEAR, AND I BELIEVE YOU'LL

BE ABLE TO SEE THE GLORY

OF GOD ON YOUR LIFE.

TITHING AND GIVING MAY

NOT BE THE FIRST THING ON

YOUR RADAR WHEN YOU'RE IN

DEBT, BUT AS CHRISTIANS WE

NEED TO BELIEVE AND RELY

ON THE BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES

GOD HAS SET FORTH FOR US.

TEST HIM ON THIS WITH A

RIGHT HEART AND WITH AN

EXPECTING HEART.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

VERSE BEHIND THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

THAT'S WHAT WE CALL IT,

THE LAW OF RESIPROCITY.

HERE IT IS LUKE 6: "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."

NOW, THESE ARE THE WORDS

OF JESUS.

AND WHEN HE TALKS, YOU CAN

TRUST IT.

HE SAYS, IF YOU START

THIS, GIVE AND IT WILL BE

GIVEN UNTO YOU, AND THEN

YOU'LL RECEIVE PRESSED

DOWN, SHAKEN TOGETHER,

RUNNING OVER, AN

ABUNDANCE.

AN ACCOUNTANT SAID TO THE

COUPLE, YOU NEED TO IN

INCREASE YOUR GIVING.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

> NOW, I'VE GOT SOME

WONDERFUL NEWS.

SOME PARTNERS FROM

CALIFORNIA SAY WE LOVE

GIVING TO CBN, SO THEY

WANT TO CHALLENGE YOU TO

GIVE.

THAT MEANS THEY WILL MATCH

YOUR GIVING DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR, $100,000.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

FOR THE PATTERS WHO MADE PARTNERS WHO MADE

IT POSSIBLE TO ISSUE THIS

CHALLENGE.

LORD, GIVE US YOUR PEACE,

FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN AND AMEN.

$100,000 IS THE CHALLENGE

AMOUNT.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING TO YOU

TO DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

THE GENERAL PARTNERSHIP IS

$20 A MONTH.

AND WE HAVE THE GOLD

LEVEL, WHICH IS $40 A

MONTH.

AND THE THOUSAND CLUB

LEVEL IS $84 A MONTH.

A WHATEVER LEVEL, NOW IS

THE TIME TO CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

Terry: WHEN YOU

BECOME A "700 CLUB"

PARTNER, WE WANT TO GIVE

YOU THIS D.V.D.

IN IT, PAT ANSWERS SOME OF

YOUR MOST CHALLENGING

QUESTIONS.

IT IS CALLED "ASK

ANYTHING."

TAKE A LOOK.

Terry: WELL, THIS IS

OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN YOU

CALL AND JOIN "700 CLUB"

RIGHT NOW AT ANY CLUB

LEVEL THAT YOU CHOOSE.

IT IS OUR WAY OF SAYING

THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT

THE NEEDS OF OTHERS AND

DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

AGAIN, OUR NUMBER IS

TOLL-FREE: 1-800-700-7000.

CALL NOW.

SAY, I WANT TO JOIN "700

CLUB," AND WE'LL GET "ASK

ANYTHING" OUT TO YOU RIGHT

AWAY.

GORDON?

Gordon: MORE THAN A

THIRD OF MILLENNIALS ARE

LIVING WITH THEIR PARENTS,

MAINLY BECAUSE THEY CAN'T

AFFORD TO LIVE ON THEIR

OWN.

BUT NOT JORDAN AND ERIN.

THEY'RE ALREADY SUCCESSFUL

REAL ESTATE BROKERS WHO

NEVER WORRY ABOUT A

DOWNTURN IN THE MARKET.

THAT'S BECAUSE THEY

DISCOVERED A FINANCIAL

STRATEGY THAT HAS

MULTIPLIED THEIR PROFITS.

Reporter: JORDAN AND

ERIN WORK HARD AND PLAY

HARD.

THEY STAY FIT AND LOVE A

GOOD MEDIUM.

ANGOOD MEAL.

BOTH ADMIT THEY NEED TO BE

CAREFUL BECAUSE IT IS EASY

TO GET SUCKED INTO A

SELFIE MINDSET.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

PEOPLE TRYING TO GET AND

GATHER AND ABSORB AS MUCH

AS THEY CAN FOR

SELF-INTERESTS, AND TO

LOOK GOOD, AS FAR AS

OUTFITS, WHERE THEY LIVE,

WHAT CAR THEY DRIVE.

EVERYONE IS TRYING TO GET

AHEAD.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

TRIES HARD TO STAY FOCUSED

ON OTHER THINGS.

WE PRIORITIZED WHEN WE

FIRST GOT MARRIED, GOD IS

NUMBER ONE, FAMILY NUMBER

TWO, AND OUR JOBS AND

CAREER, NUMBER THREE.

Reporter: AND WHILE

THEY'RE VERY SUCCESSFUL

REAL ESTATE BROKERS, THEIR

GOAL ISN'T TO BUILD A BIG

BANK ACCOUNT SO THEY CAN

BUY THINGS FOR THEMSELVES.

INSTEAD, THEY CHOOSE TO

GIVE TO OTHERS.

I BELIEVE THAT'S WHAT

THE LORD PUT ME HERE FOR.

Reporter: THEY

INCREASE THEIR GIVING TO

CBN ON A REGULAR BASIS.

I MADE A COVENANT IN MY

HEART WITH THE LORD THAT I

WOULD GIVE 5% MORE A YEAR.

IN DOING THAT, IT WAS KIND

OF A STEP OF FAITH.

I REALIZED HE REALLY IS MY

PROVIDER, SO I CAN TRUST

HIM WITH THESE EXTRA BITS

EVERY MONTH AND EVERY

YEAR.

Reporter: THEY HAVE

SEEN THEIR PROFITS

CONSISTENTLY INCREASE FOR

THE PAST SIX YEARS.

THEY CREDIT THEIR SUCCESS

TO GOD, AND ENCOURAGE

OTHERS TO PUT GOD FIRST IN

THEIR LIVES AND GIVE.

WE'RE NOT ANYMORE

GIFTED OR SPECIAL THAN THE

GUY NEXT TO US.

I THINK WE JUST FOUND THIS

KEY TO THE KINGDOM, IN A

WAY TO PARTNER WITH GOD IN

WHAT HE IS DOING ON THE

EARTH.

I THINK IT IS ABOUT

YOUR HEART POSTURE TOWARDS

THE LORD AND TOWARDS THE

THING THAT YOU'RE GIVING

TO.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

ESPECIALLY LIKES GIVING TO

CBN BECAUSE OF HOW CBN

USES SOCIAL MEDIA TO SHARE

STORIES OF GOD'S LOVEMENT.

>LOVE.

I REPOST THEM ON MY

Facebook, AND IT IS A

NICE TOOL THAT THE LORD IS

USING NOWADAYS, TO PLANT

SEEDS IN PEOPLE AND REACH

OUT TO THEM.

I JUST KNOW IN MY LIFE

THAT THE LORD, HE HAS

FILLED ME WITH HIS LOVE

AND HIS SPIRIT.

AND IT JUST MAKES ME COME

ALIVE.

I KNOW THAT GOD REALLY IS

EVERYTHING IN LIFE.

IF I CAN PARTNER WITH GOD

IN BRINGING THAT SAME

MESSAGE TO MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE ACROSS THE WORLD

THROUGH WHAT CBN IS DOING,

THEN THAT'S JUST -- WHAT

AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY AND

PRIVILEGE.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE OTHERS

TO BE PARTNERS WITH CBN

BECAUSE IT REALLY HAS

BROUGHT SO MUCH BLESSING

TO OUR LOVES.

Gordon: JORDAN AND

ERIN PUT THE PRINCIPLES

INTO PRACTICE.

JORDAN SAID, GOD HAS PUT

ME ON THIS EARTH TO DO ONE

VERY SPECIFIC THING, AND

THAT IS TO HELP FUND THE

KINGDOM OF GOD.

WHEN HE HAS THAT, AND HE

SAYS, THIS IS MY GOAL: I'M

GOING TO PUT GOD FIRST,

FAMILY SECOND, BUSINESS

THIRD, HE HAS GOT HIS

PRIORITIES IN LINE.

AND HE SAYS, I'M GOING TO

BE VERY SERIOUS ABOUT

THIS, VERY INTENTIONAL.

AND WITH THAT A WONDERFUL

PROMISE COMES TO WORK FOR

HIM.

AND, AGAIN, THESE ARE THE

WORDS OF JESUS, FROM

MATTHEW 25: "TO THOSE WHO

USE WELL WHAT THEY ARE

GIVEN, EVEN MORE WILL BE

GIVEN, AND THEY WILL HAVE

AN ABUNDANCE."

JORDAN AND ERIN SAID, WE

ARE GOING TO USE WELL WHAT

WE ARE GIVEN.

AND YOU SEE THE ABUNDANCE

THAT HAS HAPPENED IN THEIR

LIVES.

IF YOU HAVE THAT DILIGENCE

AND THAT PERSEVERANCE,

HERE IS THE ORIENTATION OF

MY LIFE, THEN THE

BLESSINGS FLOW.

SO IF YOU WANT TO START

DOING THAT, GIVE US A

CALL: 1-800-700-7000.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"700 CLUB."

WE'VE GOT A $100,000

CHALLENGE.

35 MINUTES ON THE CLOCK.

AND LET'S GET THE RED

NUMBER UP.

$87,000 LEFT TO GO.

SO GIVE US A CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS SO

MUCH, GORDON.

WELL, YOU'VE HEARD GORDON

TALK ABOUT THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

IF YOU'RE GOT QUESTIONS

ABOUT HOW IT WORKS, YOU

ARE NOT ALONE.

IN OUR D.V.D. "ASK

ANYTHING," PAT SHARES WITH

A VIEWER EXACTLY HOW

GIVING UNLOCKS GOD'S

BLESSING IN YOUR LIFE.

HERE IS A QUESTION FROM

CAROL: "WHEN A FAMILY

ISN'T GIVING A FULL TITHE,

OR ANY TITHE TO THEIR

CHURCH OR MINISTRY, DOES

THAT LIMIT GOD'S FINANCIAL

BLESSING IN THEIR LIVES?"

Pat: THERE IS

SOMETHING ABOUT GOD BEING

YOUR PARTNER.

THE BIBLE SAYS, GIVE AND

IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU,

PRESSED DOWN, GOOD

MEASURE, RUNNING OVER,

HEAP INTO YOUR BOSSOM.

THERE ARE FOUR ADJECTIVES

IN THERE.

GIVING IS SO IMPORTANT.

YOU WANT TO UNLOCK THE

FLOW OF GOD'S BLESSING

INTO YOUR LIFE.

THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT, WITH

GIVING.

YOU DON'T WAIT FOR HIM TO

DO SOMETHING.

YOU START IT YOURSELF.

SO WHETHER IT IS $10 OR $5

OR $20, OR WHATEVER, GIVE

UP TUNTO THE LORD AND WATCH

HIM BEGIN TO DO SOMETHING.

AND THE LORD WILL BLESS.

THAT'S THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

Wendy: I LOVE THAT.

IT IS SO SIMPLE, ISN'T IT?

IF YOU WANT TO UNLOCK

GOD'S BLESSINGS IN YOUR

LIFE, IT ALL STARTS WITH

GIVING.

WHETHER YOU CAN GIVE A

LITTLE OR A LOT, THAT'S UP

TO YOU.

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO

GO TO YOUR PHONES AND SAY,

YES, I WANT TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

1-800-700-7000.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com WHEN YOU DO

THAT, WE HAVE A DAF D.V.D. FOR

YOU, "ASK ANYTHING."

IF ALREADY A CBN PARTNER

AT $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY, I JUST WANT TO SAY

THANK YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE

MAKING A BIG DIFFERENCE.

I WOULD LIKE TO CHALLENGE

YOU TO GO UP TO OUR GOLD

LEVEL, $40 A MONTH.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, WE WANT

TO BLESS YOU WITH THREE OF

PAT'S NEW TEACHING.

IF YOU CAN GO TO OUR

THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL, $84 A

MONTH OR HIGHER, YOU'RE

GOING TO GET FIVE.

I'M GOING TO THROW IT OVER

TO TERRY.

Terry: WHENEVER

DISASTER STRIKES IN THE

WORLD, CBN'S "OPERATION

BLESSING" STRIKES BACK.

OUR "OPERATION BLESSING"

TEAMS HAVE BEEN OWNER THE

GROUND IN TEXAS SINCE

BEFORE HURRICANE HARVEY

STRUCK, AND WE'RE STILL

THERE.

WE'RE HELPING PEOPLE

SURVIVE AND HELPING THEM

SALVAGE WHAT POSSESSIONS

ARE LEFT, AND GIVING THEM

HOPE AS THEY BEGIN TO

REBUILD THEIR LIVES.

TAKE A LOOK.

IT COMPLETELY WIPED OUT

EVERYTHING.

EVERYTHING IS WITHIN TWO

FEET OF WATER.

I NEVER HAD IT LIKE

THIS.

I FEEL LIKE A HOMELESS

MAN.

Reporter: HURRICANE

HARVEY SLAMMED INTO

SOUTHEASTERN TEXAS WITH A

VENGEANCE.

RISING WATER CHASED

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE TO

ROOFTOPS AND OVERWHELMED

RESCUERS WHO COULD NOT

KEEP UP WITH ALL OF THE

CALLS FOR HELP.

I'VE SEARCHED AND

SEARCHED AND SEARCHED,

TRYING TO FIND FOOD FOR

DAYS.

Reporter: MARY FISHER

DECIDED TO RIDE OUT THE

STORM IN HER MOBILE HOME

WITH THREE GRANDCHILDREN.

HER PROPERTY FLOODED, AND

FISHER SAYS WITHOUT THE

GENEROSITY OF "OPERATION

BLESSING," THEY WOULD HAVE

NOTHING TO EAT.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME

I'VE FOUND ANY KIND OF

FOOD, AND I'M SO GRATEFUL

FOR IT.

THANK YOU ALL SO VERY,

VERY MUCH FOR EVERYTHING

YOU'VE DONE.

FOLKS HERE IN THIS CITY

ARE WAY BELOW THE POVERTY

LINE.

Reporter: THIS PASTOR

SAW A LOT OF DESTRUCTION

IN HIS SMALL TOWN OF TAFT,

TEXAS.

TOGETHER WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING," PASTOR MOORE'S

CHURCH SPREAD THE LOVE OF

JESUS WITH FOOD, WATER,

AND NON-PERISHABLE ITEMS

LIKE CLOTHES AND SHOES.

WE'VE GOT FOLKS COMING

IN HERE AND GETTING

SUPPLIES AND WE'RE PRAYING

WITH THEM AND SHARING THE

LOVE OF JESUS WITH THEM,

ENCOURAGING THEM, AND

INVITING THEM TO A

PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH

THE LORD.

EVERYWHERE I'M AT THERE

ARE HAPPY FACES.

YOU BROUGHT A LOT OF JOY

TO US.

Reporter: THIS O.B.

VOLUNTEER USED SOCIAL

MEDIA TO GET OTHERS ON

BOARD IN THEIR RELIEF

EFFORTS.

IT BROUGHT A LOT OF

HAPPINESS TO MY HEART.

THANK YOU, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR COMING OVER

HERE AND HELPING OUR

COMMUNITY, BECAUSE IT IS

REALLY A BLESSING.

YOU ARE A BLESSING TO ALL

OF US HERE, AND TO ME.

Terry: THAT THANK YOU

GOES OUT TO YOU.

WE'RE THERE BECAUSE YOU

MAKE IT POSSIBLE.

THAT'S JUST ONE OF THE

REASONS THAT WE'RE ASKING

MOVE UP TO THE THOUSAND

CLUB LEVEL, AND THAT'S

$84.

OUR FOUNDERS JOIN US AT

EVERY DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL

BE MATCHED DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR, SO YOUR GIVING

GOES TWICE AS FAR.

WE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

FOR YOUR CALL.

GORDON?

Gordon: IN THE CITY

OF ROCKPORT, MOST HOMES

WERE DAMAGED BY THE HIGH

WINDS, RAIN, AND FLOODING

FROM HURRICANE HARVEY.

THE PEOPLE THERE ARE NOW

IN THE PROCESS OF

REBUILDING, AND THEY'RE

GETTING MUCH-NEEDED HELP

FROM A CLEANUP CREW OF

ANGELS, IN THE FORM OF

THOUSANDS OF "OPERATION

BLESSING" VOLUNTEERS.

Reporter: MOST GULF

COAST DISASTER RELIEF

VOLUNTEERS SAY THE SAME

THING ABOUT HARVEY'S SWATH

OF DESTRUCTION.

IT IS ALMOST A SENSORY

OVERLOAD BECAUSE THERE WAS

SO MUCH DAMAGE EVERYWHERE.

IT WAS HARD TO GRASP.

Reporter: A

CATASTROPHIC FLOOD

OVERWHELMED HOUSTON, BUT

HARVEY'S CATEGORY 4 WINDS

FLATTENED THE TOWN OF

ROCKPORT.

ROOFS WERE RIPPED OFF.

OVER 3,000 "OPERATION

BLESSING" VOLUNTEERS HAVE

BEEN THE BOOTS ON THE

GROUND, HELPING THIS

COMMUNITY RECOVER.

BEATRICE, WHO LIVES ON A

FIXED INCOME, SAYS SHE HAD

NO IDEA HOW SHE WOULD PAY

TO HAVE LARGE OAK TREES

REMOVED FROM HER YARD.

I'M SURE THERE ARE TREE

SERVICES, BUT NOT

NECESSARILY AFFORDABLE.

SOMEBODY TOLD ME TO GO

DOWN AND SIGN UP, AND I

DID, AND THESE ANGELS CAME

AND DID IT.

Reporter: THIS FAMILY

SAYS THEIR "OPERATION

BLESSING" VOLUNTEER CREW

CUT TREES, REMOVED DEBRIS,

AND LIFTED THEIR SPIRITS.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

HAS BEEN A BIG HELP.

BECAUSE WHEN OTHER PEOPLE

ARE HELPING YOU, IT SEEMS

LIKE NOT AS BIG A MOUNTAIN

YOU HAVE TO CONQUER.

Reporter: RICHARD'S

MOTHER IS DISABLED AND HIS

FATHER SUFFERS FROM

DEMENTIA.

THEY WANT TO HELP, BUT

SOMETIMES THEIR ABILITIES

DON'T MATCH UP TO THAT.

Reporter: CARL

MANAGES A SUCCESSFUL

LANDSCAPE COMPANY.

THE COMPANY'S OWNER IS

PAYING THEIR GUYS AND

DONATING THEIR TIME TO

"OPERATION BLESSING."

"OPERATION BLESSING"

MADE IT EASY FOR US.

THEY GIVE US THE JOBS AND

THE TASK, WHERE WE GET IN

AND DO WHAT WE'RE GOOD AT,

AND THEN THE NEXT GROUP

CAN COME IN.

Reporter: IN FOUR

DAYS, CARL'S EXPERT GROUP

CLEARED 21 TREES FROM 21

HOMES.

EVERY HOMEOWNER HAS

BEEN GRATEFUL.

SOME OF THEM, WE'RE ASKING

THEM HOW THEY'RE HOLDING

UP, AND SOME ARE DOING A

LITTLE BETTER THAN OTHERS,

BUT EVERYBODY IS GRATEFUL.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE

WOULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT

Y'ALL.

I'M GLAD THE LORD SENT

Y'ALL IN OUR DIRECTION.

Gordon: AND THEY WERE

SENT IN YOUR NAME.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "700

OUR LATEST D.V.D., "ASK

TOUGHEST QUESTIONS.

IN THIS CLIP YOU'RE ABOUT

GORDON?

Gordon: FOR 10 YEARS,

JOHN HAD BEEN LIVING THE

GOOD LIFE.

HE HAD A GREAT JOB, MONEY

IN THE BANK, AND A SECURE

FUTURE.

THEN WITHIN FOUR MONTHS HE

LOST HIS JOB, AND HE WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER.

Reporter: JOHN

BREITHAUPT LIVES IN THE

PACIFIC NORTHWEST WHERE HE

NEGOTIATES LAND AND TIMBER

CONTRACTS.

I HAD A SIX-FIGURE JOB

WITH A CAR AND A COMPANY

CREDIT CARD AND A 401K AND

A RETIREMENT PLAN.

I HAD A 36-FOOT BOAT THAT

I COULD MOOR AT THE

MARINA.

Reporter: THEN IN

2008, THE JOB MARKET

CRASHED.

HE LOST HIS JOB AND

MEDICAL BENEFITS.

AT THE SAME TIME, HE WAS

ALSO DIAGNOSED WITH

CANCER.

IT IS ALWAYS TOUGH TO

TALK ABOUT.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOUR

DOCTOR SAYS YOU HAVE A

TUMOR.

YOU NEED RADIATION AND

CHEMOTHERAPY?

YOU DO IT.

Reporter: OVER THE

NEXT FEW YEARS, JOHN SOLD

HIS ASSETS, EXHAUSTED HIS

SAVINGS, AND CASHED IN HIS

401K IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE

ENDS MEET AND PAY THIS

MEDICAL BILLS.

AT TIMES THEY WENT TO

COLLECTION, AND SO IT HURT

MY CREDIT.

LOSING MY CAR, LOSING MY

INSURANCE, LOSING MY CELL

PHONE, IT'S NOT A GOOD

FEELING.

Reporter: SPORADIC

WORK AND MULTIPLE TUMORS

FOLLOWED.

THEN AT 52, JOHN MOVED

HOME WITH HIS MOTHER.

IT IS TOUGH FOR A MAN

TO DO, TO ASK FOR HELP.

TO SAY I CAN'T DO IT.

THAT'S PRETTY TOUGH FOR A

SELF-SUSTAINING MAN.

SORT OF AN ALL-TIME LOW.

THAT'S WHEN I TURNED BACK

TO GOD.

I SAID, OKAY, GOD, I'LL

TRUST IN YOU.

YOU HELP ME GET OUT OF

THESE CIRCUMSTANCES.

Reporter: JOHN HAD

JUST UNDER $300 WHEN HE

SAYS HIS PRAYER WAS

ANSWERED.

HE WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

TERRY TALKED ABOUT

GIVING $20.

AND I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN

TOUCHED BY THE STORIES

THAT "700 CLUB" DO.

AND THE THOUGHT THAT WENT

THROUGH MY HEAD IS, WHAT'S

$20?

I THINK THE HOLY SPIRIT

JUST PROMPTED ME TO GIVE

THAT.

I HAD NEVER GIVEN TO A TV

MINISTRY BEFORE.

Reporter: JOHN CALLED

CBN AND PLEDGED $20.

WITHIN TWO WEEKS, HE HAD

FOUR CLIENTS AND WAS BACK

IN THE TIMBER CONSULTING

BUSINESS, WORKING AS AN

INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR.

THE LIGHT WENT OFF IN

MY HEAD.

I THOUGHT, THE ONLY THING

THAT HAS CHANGED BETWEEN

NOW AND THEN IS I STARTED

GIVING TO "700 CLUB."

AND IT BROUGHT TEARS TO MY

EYES.

I STOPPED AND PULLED OVER,

AND I CALLED "THE 700

CLUB," AND I SAID, I WANT

TO RAISE MY GIFT FROM $20

TO $100.

Reporter: AND JOHN

ALSO STARTED TITHING TO

HIS CHURCH.

NOW HE HAS CONSISTENT

WORK, A FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE,

AND HE IS ABLE TO PAY ALL

OF HIS MEDICAL BILLS.

MY FINANCES HAVE

RECOVERED.

I HAVE MORE CONSULTING

WORK THAN I KNOW WHAT TO

DO WITH RIGHT NOW.

I'M ABLE TO PUT BACK INTO

SAVINGS AND MY 401K.

I DON'T THINK THAT IS A

COINCIDENCE.

IT IS A GREAT MINISTRY.

IT IS A GREAT MINISTRY.

YOU SAY, LOOK, WE'RE

TIGHT.

WE CAN'T SQUEEZE ANOTHER

$100 OUT.

THEN GIVE 50, OR 40, OR

$20.

I DON'T BELIEVE IN GIVING

TO GET.

THAT'S NOT MY MOTIVATION.

BUT I GAVE A LITTLE BIT,

AND GOD BLESSED A LOT.

Gordon: YOU GIVE A

LITTLE BIT, AND GOD

BLESSES A LOT.

THAT IS THE FOUR SU SU

SUPERLATIVES.

ALL OF THESE THINGS WILL

BE POURED INTO YOUR LAP

BECAUSE YOU PUT THE

PRINCIPLE INTO PRACTICE.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

> I HAVE SOME WONDERFUL

NEWS.

SOME PARTNERS PARTICULAR

MISSOURI WANT TO $88,000

TO THIS CHALLENGE.

AND LET'S PRAY.

LORD, BLESS THIS.

BLESS THE PARTNERS WHO

WATCHING NOW.

ENCOURAGE THEM.

FOR WE ASK IT ALL IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN AND AMEN.

$188,000 IS THE CHALLENGE.

WE'VE GOT $122,000 TO GO.

SO CALL US RIGHT NOW.

1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: TEKO IS A

MOTHER WHO'S CHILDREN WERE

SICK AND STARVING, ALL

BECAUSE OF A LACK OF CLEAN

WATER.

SOME DAYS ALL HER FAMILY

HAD TO EAT WAS TREE

LEAVES.

NOT ANYMORE, THANKS TO A

PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN CBN

AND "INNOVATIONS AFRICA."

Reporter: MANY DAYS,

TEKO WALKS FOUR MILES TO

THE RIVER TO FETCH WATER.

ONE DAY ANIMALS

TRAMPLED THE WATER.

I WAS SO THIRSTY AND TOO

WEAK TO LOOK FURTHER, SO I

DRANK IT, BUT I COULDN'T

GIVE IT TO MY CHILDREN.

THEY FELL ASLEEP CRYING.

Reporter: WITH BARELY

ENOUGH WATER TO DRINK,

GROWING CROPS IS

PRACTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE.

WHEN THERE IS NOTHING

ELSE, PEOPLE GATHER TREE

LEAVES TO EAT.

WE DON'T EAT IT ALL.

I SAVE SOME FOR LATER.

WITHOUT WATER, EVERYTHING

IS DIRTY.

MY CHILDREN ARE ALWAYS

SICK.

SOMETIMES THEY COUGH UP

BLOOD.

I WONDERED WHY GOD GAVE ME

MY CHILDREN.

I WOULD RATHER SUFFER

ALONE THAN TO SEE THEM

SUFFER.

Reporter: TEKO WORKS

HARD EVERY DAY TO PROVIDE

FOR HER CHILDREN.

SHE AND MANY OTHERS CUT

GRASS TO SELL IN THE

MARKET.

AFTER CUTTING AND BUNDLING

THE GRASS AND WALKING

SOMETIMES FIVE MILES OR

MORE TO THE MARKET, A

WOMAN CAN EXPECT TO SELL

ONE BUNDLE FOR ABOUT 30

CENTS.

THAT'S THE PRICE OF A

SMALL HANDFUL OF TOMATOES.

THERE WAS A DAY THAT NO

ONE WOULD BUY THE GRASS.

I WALKED ALL THE WAY BACK

HOME, HOPING SOMEONE WOULD

LET US BORROW SOME FOOD,

BUT NO ONE HAD ANYTHING.

Reporter: WHEN CBN

AND INNOVATION AFRICA

STARTED DRILLING JUST

OUTSIDE THEIR VILLAGE, THE

NEWS SPREAD QUICKLY.

THEIR SEARCH FOR CLEAN

WATER HAD FINALLY ENDED.

OH, THAT'S GOOD.

Reporter: SO THIS IS

JUST A TEMPORARY TAP.

WE'RE ACTUALLY INSTALLING

NINE PERMANENT TAPS TOTAL.

WE'RE BUILDING A TALL

WATER TOWER OVER HERE, AND

THAT'S GOING TO GIVE US

THE PRESSURE WE NEED TO

PIPE WATER A MILE IN THAT

DIRECTION AND A MILE IN

THAT DIRECTION.

SO 5,000 PEOPLE IN THREE

VILLAGES ARE ALL GOING TO

HAVE FRESH, CLEAN WATER,

JUST A FEW STEPS FROM

HOME.

GOD SENT YOU TO RESCUE

US.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN

MY LIFE TO HAVE WATER THIS

CLOSE.

THE NEXT TIME YOU VISIT,

YOU WILL SEE TOMATOES,

UNIONS, AND OTHER

VEGETABLES GROWING FOR US

TO EAT AND TO SELL IN THE

MARKETS.

Reporter: THANKS TO

CBN AND "INNOVATION

AFRICA," TEKO'S FAMILY AND

MANY OTHERS HAVE GOOD,

NUTRITIOUS FOOD TO EAT,

AND FRESH, CLEAN WATER

RIGHT AT THEIR FINGERTIPS.

AT FIRST THE WATER WAS

1,000 MILES AWAY FROM US.

AND NOW MY CHILDREN CAN

SIMPLY WALK TO THE TAP AND

DRINK.

I WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY

IN AMERICA.

IN THE NAME OF GOD AND

JESUS CHRIST, MAY GOD

BLESS ALL OF YOU.

Terry: CLEAN DRINKING

WATER IS SO EASY HERE IN

THE UNITED STATES, SO WE

DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND

THE VALUE OF IT.

I HOPE THAT THANK YOU OF

THAT MOM IS SOMETHING THAT

TOUCHED YOUR HEART.

YOU MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR

HER FAMILY TO BE HEALTHY

AND WELL.

NOT JUST HER FAMILY, BUT

THE ENTIRE VILLAGE.

RIGHT NOW THERE IS A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY TO YOU TO MAKE

YOUR GIVING GO TWICE AS

FAR.

WHEN YOU CALL AND JOIN

"700 CLUB" RIGHT NOW,

EVERY DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL

BE MATCHED DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR.

BUT HERE IS ANOTHER WAY

YOU CAN EXPAND THE IMPACT

OF YOUR GIVING, AND THAT'S

TO DO IT USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES

ALL OF THE WORK.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE

STAMPS OR ENVELOPES OR

REMEMBER TO MAIL ANYTHING.

ALL OF THE SAVINGS GOES

RIGHT INTO THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE LIKE TEKO AND HER

FAMILY.

AND OUR WAY OF SAYING

THANK YOU FOR USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS, IS TO SEND YOU A

"POWER FOR LIFE" TEACHING

EVERY SINGLE MONTH.

GREAT BLESSING TO YOU.

AND YOU'LL HAVE THE

SATISFACTION OF KNOWING

SAVING LIVES ALL AROUND

THE WORLD, AS WELL AS HERE

AT HOME.

SO CALL NOW:

1-800-700-7000.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," AND SAY,

I'D LIKE TO DO IT USING

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

GORDON?

Gordon: WE'RE HEARING

FROM SOMEONE IN OUR

MILITARY, WHO IS LIVING

OVERSEAS, SO THEY'RE A

2500 CLUB MEMBER.

THEY WANT TO DOUBLE TO

FOUNDER, $5,000.

> WELL, ERICA IS A

SINGLE MOM WHO WORKS TWO

JOBS.

AND SHE ALSO HOME-SCHOOLS

HER YOUNG SON.

THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES WHEN

SHE HAD TO CHOOSE BETWEEN

GOING TO WORK AND PUTTING

FOOD ON THE TABLE.

WELL, THAT'S NO LONGER THE

CASE.

BECAUSE OF HELP ERICA GOT

FROM "OPERATION BLESSING."

Reporter: ERICA AND

HER SON, JEREMIAH, LOVE

SPENDING TIME BEING ACTIVE

TOGETHER.

I WORK AT A GYM, AND I

TEACH GYMNASTICS, SO I

GUESS IT WAS KIND OF

NATURAL THAT HE PICKED IT

UP.

HE ACTUALLY STARTED

COMPETING LAST YEAR, AND

SO FAR, SO GOOD.

Reporter: ERICA

DECIDED TO HOME-SCHOOL HER

SON SO HE COULD KEEP HIS

EDUCATION CENTERED ON GOD.

MY MOM LOVES ME A LOT

AND I LOVE MY MOM A LOT.

I LIKE BEING HOME-SCHOOLED

BECAUSE MY MOM CAN TEACH

ME.

EVERYTHING HE LEARNS

PRETTY MUCH COMES FROM

GOD'S WORD.

WE'RE AT CHURCH MANY TIMES

A WEEK, AND THERE IS NEVER

A COMPLAINT FROM JEREMIAH

ABOUT GOING TO CHURCH.

HE IS ALWAYS EXCITED AND

READY TO GO.

I DO LOVE JESUS.

AND I LOVE HIM BECAUSE HE

LOVES ME.

AND HE DIED ON THE CROSS

FOR US.

IT IS A REAL BLESSING

TO KNOW THAT THE LORD IS

WORKING IN HIS HEART AND

IN HIS LIFE.

SHE WORKS LONG HOURS TO

PROVIDE FOR HER SON.

I'M A SINGLE MOM.

I HAVE TO WORK TWO JOBS TO

MAKE ENDS MEET.

I WORK FOR CHESAPEAKE

PARKS AND RECREATION, I

TEACH PRE-SCHOOL CLASSES,

AND I ALSO WORK FOR

HURRICANE GYMNASTICS,

WHERE I'M A GYMNASTICS

COACH.

FINANCES ARE VERY TIGHT.

IT IS A STRUGGLE.

Reporter: ERICA SAYS

HER FAITH IN GOD SUSTAINS

HER.

THERE HAS BEEN MANY,

MANY NIGHTS AFTER JEREMIAH

GOES TO BED, I'M ON MY

KNEES AND GIVING MY

BURDENS TO GOD.

Reporter: WHEN THE

BILLS HAVE PILED UP, SHE

HAS MADE SOME TOUGH

CHOICES.

MANY TIMES I SAID,

OKAY, WE'RE GOING TO EAT

TODAY OR WE'RE GOING TO

HAVE GAS TO GET TO WORK

TODAY.

USUALLY WHEN IT COMES DOWN

TO IT, I HAVE TO CHOOSE

GAS BECAUSE IF I DON'T GO

TO WORK, THEN THERE IS NO

OTHER INCOME COMING IN.

IT IS HARD WHEN YOU

REALIZE THAT THE FOOD IN

THE CABINETS ARE KIND OF

RUNNING OUT AND THERE IS

NO MONEY IN THE BANK

ACCOUNTS TO BUY MORE FOOD

TO REPLACE IT.

Reporter: WHEN A

FRIEND AT CHURCH TOLD

ERICA ABOUT "OPERATION

BLESSING" PARTNER "HOUSE

OF BLESSING," SHE KNEW GOD

HAD ANSWERED HER PRAYERS.

I HAVE BEEN HELPED

GREATLY, TO KNOW MY SON

DOESN'T HAVE TO GO HUNGRY.

TO SIT DOWN WITH SOMEBODY

WHO CARES AND FOR THEM TO

PRAY WITH ME, I NOT ONLY

LEAVE WITH MY TRUNK FULL

OF GROCERIES, I LEAVE WITH

MY SPIRIT RENEWED.

Reporter: IT HAS

LIFTED A HEAVY BURDEN.

I JUST WANT TO THANK

EVERYBODY WHO GIVES AND

SACRIFICES WHAT THEY HAVE

TO GIVE TO "OPERATION

BLESSING."

SO THAT NOT JUST MY

FAMILY, BUT SO MANY

FAMILIES CAN BE HELPED AND

BLESSED BY THIS MINISTRY.

NOT ONLY ARE YOU HELPING

TO FEED OUR FAMILIES, BUT

YOU'RE FEEDING OUR SPIRIT.

YOU'RE HELPING PEOPLE

EXPERIENCE GOD'S LOVE

FIRSTHAND.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING TO

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND

BLESSING MY FAMILY.

Gordon: THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

THAT.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

DOING SO MUCH.

NOT JUST DISASTER RELIEF,

BUT EVERY SINGLE MONTH,

THREE MILLION AMERICANS

ARE BEING FED.

SO MANY OF US HAVE MORE

MONTH THAN MONEY.

AND WE WANT TO DO OUR PART

TO SAY, WE'RE HERE WITH

YOU.

WE WANT TO STAND WITH YOU

IN YOUR TIME OF NEED.

YOU'RE A PART OF ALLIST

WHEALL OF ITWHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

SO CALL NOW:

1-800-700-7000.

MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR

PLEDGE EXPRESS, WHERE THE

BANK DOES ALL OF THE WORK,

WHERE WE SEND TO YOU OUR

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: IN THE COURSE

OF HIS AMAZING LIFE, PAT

ROBERTSON HAS STARTED A

MINISTRY, A SCHOOL, A

HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATION,

AND CREATED THOUSANDS AND

THOUSANDS OF JOBS ALONG

THE WAY.

IN "ASK ANYTHING," PAT

SHARES WHAT HE LOOKS FOR

IN AN EMPLOYEE, AND WHAT

PEOPLE NEED TO DO IN ORDER

TO GET A JOB.

Terry: WE'RE GOING TO

TAKE SOME QUESTIONS NOW

ABOUT MONEY AND CAREERS.

SO LET'S START WITH JAKE

ON THIS, WHO E-MAILS: "CAN

YOU TELL ME THE CHARACTER

QUALITIES I SHOULD LOOK

FOR IN A GOOD HIRE?

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN

EMPLOYEES?

AND WHAT ARE THE SPECIAL

THINGS THAT MAKES SOMEONE

GREAT?"

Pat: THE BIGGEST

THING IS ENTHUSIASM.

ARE PEOPLE ENTHUSIASTIC,

AND DO THEY REALLY WANT TO

MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN.

THEY REALLY WANT TO

SUCCEED.

THAT'S THE FIRST.

SECONDLY, ARE THEY TEAM

PLAYERS?

WILL THEY GET ALONG WITH

OTHER PEOPLE?

BUT FROM A MANAGEMENT

STANDPOINT, I BELIEVE THAT

THE BEST MANAGERS ARE

THOSE WHO HIRE THE BEST

PEOPLE AND THEN GIVE THEM

A PATH TO RUN ON, A CAREER

PATH.

HERE IS THE GOAL, YOU GO

GET IT.

Wendy: PRACTICAL

WISDOM STRAIGHT FROM THE

BIBLE, THAT'S WHAT I LOVE

ABOUT THIS NEW D.V.D.,

"ASK ANYTHING."

THESE ARE BIBLICAL ANSWERS

TO SOME OF LIFE'S MOST

PROBING QUESTIONS.

BEST OF ALL, IT IS OUR

FREE GIFT TO YOU WHEN YOU

CALL AND SAY, YES, I WANT

TO JOIN "700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

GREAT QUESTION.

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, IS ALL IT TAKES TO

BECOME A CBN PARTNER.

MANY OF YOU ARE ALREADY

THERE, AND WE SAY THANK

YOU.

YOU ARE MAKING A HUGE

DIFFERENCE AROUND THE

WORLD.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE

A BIGGER DIFFERENCE, GO TO

YOUR PHONES AND SAY, I

WANT TO GO UP TO OUR GOLD

THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL, $84 A

MONTH OR HIGHER, AND WE'RE

GOING TO BLESS YOU WITH

FIVE D.V.D.s, "ASK

ANYTHING."

THIS IS YOURS WHEN YOU

CHALLENGE, $88,000.

THIS IS A GREAT TIME TO GO

TO YOUR PHONES.

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN YOU'RE A

CBN PARTNER, YOU'RE

HELPING PEOPLE ALL AROUND

THE WORLD, AS WELL AS HERE

AT HOME.

PATRICK AND HIS WIFE ARE

NEWLYWEDS, AND THEY'RE

LIVING ON A SERGEANT'S

SALARY, AND THAT ISN'T

EASY.

THAT'S WHY CBN'S "HELPING

THE HOMEFRONT" GAVE THIS

COUPLE A MUCH-NEEDED HAND.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: NEWLYWEDS

PATRICK AND CHRISTINA

DIDN'T HAVE MUCH TIME TO

SETTLE INTO MARRIED LIFE.

PATRICK WAS SCHEDULED TO

LEAVE JUST THREE WEEKS

AFTER THE WEDDINGMENT.

>WEDDING.

I'M VERY PROUD OF HIM.

HE IS WILLING TO SACRIFICE

FOR THE COUNTRY THAT HE

LOVES.

Reporter: BOTH OF

THEM SAY WHAT REALLY SEES

THEM THROUGH IS PRAYER.

WHEN I'M DEPLOYED, I

PRAY ALL OF THE TIME.

I PRAY THAT SHE IS SAFE.

I PRAY THAT HE KEEPS ME

SAFE AS WELL.

I FOUND HE HAS BEEN THERE

SEVERAL TIMES.

GOD PLAYS A BIG PART IN

MY LIFE AND IN OUR

RELATIONSHIP, AND IN

KEEPING ME STRONG.

HE KEEPS ME CALM AND HE

KEEPS ME GOING.

Reporter: THEY ALSO

PRAY FOR THEIR FINANCES.

WITH PATRICK ON A

SERGEANT'S SALARY, AND

CHRISTINA STILL IN SCHOOL,

WORKING ONLY PART-TIME,

THEY KNEW THEY WOULDN'T

HAVE MUCH.

IT DIDN'T HELP THAT

PATRICK'S TRUCK NEEDED

REPAIRS AND THEY DIDN'T

HAVE MONEY TO FIX IT.

THEY COULDN'T EVEN AFFORD

TO BUY FURNITURE FOR THEIR

FIRST APARTMENT TOGETHER.

I DON'T WANT HER

SITTING ON THE FLOOR.

I WANT HER TO BE SET UP.

I DON'T WANT HER TO HAVE

ANY ISSUES TO WORRY ABOUT,

EXCEPT SCHOOL AND HER JOB,

WHEN I'M GONE.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

HAD ATTENDED PREMARITAL

COUNSELLING, AND THE

BOWENS KNEW ABOUT THEIR

FINANCIAL STRESS AND

CONTACTED CBN'S "HELPING

THE HOMEFRONT."

WE STARTED PLANNING.

DONNY AND MICHELLE INVITED

THE NEWLYWEDS TO THEIR

HOME, AND STARTED BY

TELLING THEM CBN WOULD FIX

PATRICK'S TRUCK.

THAT'S GREAT.

Reporter: AND THERE

WAS MORE.

"HELPING THE HOMEFRONT"

WANTS TO TAKE YOU TO

ASHLEY FURNITURE.

AND THEY WANT TO BLESS YOU

ALL WITH...BLESS YOU ALL

WITH SOME FURNITURE.

SO AS A NEWLYWED COUPLE,

GOING INTO A DEPLOYMENT,

YOU CAN MAYBE PUT THAT

MONEY INTO SAVINGS.

YOU'VE GOT YOURSELF A

HOME.

YES.

[LAUGHTER]

ISN'T THAT AWESOME?

YEAH, THAT'S AWESOME.

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.

Reporter: AFTER

ARRANGING TO FIX THE

TRUCK, THEY WENT TO ASHLEY

HOME FURNITURE TO PICK OUT

WHAT THEY NEEDED.

ASHLEY'S WAS HAPPY TO GIVE

CBN A BIG DISCOUNT.

THE NEWLYWEDS SETTLED INTO

THEIR NEW HOME BEFORE

PATRICK LEFT.

I'M VERY GRATEFUL TO

CBN FOR DOING THIS FOR THE

FAMILIES THAT HAVE TO GO

THROUGH THINGS LIKE THIS.

IT IS A WONDERFUL

BLESSING.

I HOPE THEY CONTINUE TO DO

IT.

Terry: IT IS A

WONDERFUL BLESSING FOR US,

TO BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING

SPECIAL FOR COUPLES LIKE

PATRICK AND CHRISTINA, WHO

ARE GIVING THEIR ALL.

ISN'T IT WONDERFUL TO KNOW

THAT YOU AND I CAN STEP IN

AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE LIKE

THAT?

I WANT YOU TO BE A PART OF

THAT.

BLESSING BY JOINING "THE

BRI LIKES TO SHARE

I DECIDED TO TAKE A COUPLE

Reporter: CLIFF AND

BRI HAVE BEEN SHARING

"SUPERBOOK" WITH THEIR

OLDEST, WAS 2.

IT PREPARES THEIR

I WANT THEM TO ALWAYS BE

ABLE TO COME TO ME AND

KNOW THEY'RE GOING TO GET

THE TRUTH.

THAT'S WHY "SUPERBOOK" IS

A GREAT TOOL FOR US AS A

FAMILY, BECAUSE I FEEL IT

IS DEFINITELY GROUNDED IN

TRUTH AND BIBLICAL

KNOWLEDGE.

I CHOOSE CBN TO SUPPORT

BECAUSE I TRUST THEIR

INTEGRITY.

I TRUST THE VISION THAT

GOD HAS GIVEN THEM.

IT MAKES ME WANT TO CRY.

AND I'M JUST SO THANKFUL

FOR THE FACT THAT THEY'RE

RAISING UP THE NEXT

GENERATION WITH

"SUPERBOOK."

THEY'RE HELPING TO LAY A

FOUNDATION FOR

GENERATIONS.
