- [Narrator] The followingprogram is sponsored by CBN.
- Well, welcome to The 700 Club.
The Senate Judiciary Committeeis ready to hear testimony
on the allegations of sexual assault
against Judge Kavanaugh.
But now his accuser saysshe's not ready to talk.
Christine Ford says shewants the FBI to investigate
her charges before she testifies.
- Committee republicanssay Monday is her chance
to come forward and state her case.
If she doesn't, they planto go forward with the vote.
CBN Capital Hill Correspondent,Abigail Robertson
reports on this swirling controversy.
- Republicans delay thecommittee vote on Judge Kavanaugh
this week to take Dr. ChristineBlasey Ford up on her offer
to share her allegationsagainst the nominee.
Then late Tuesday, she changed her tune,
saying she doesn't want to appear
until the FBI looks into her claims.
- If she is not going tobe part of the hearing
that would be a very interesting
and unfortunate turn of events.
- [Abigail] Democrats have also pushed
for an FBI investigation.
- I came here because ofhow Anita Hill was handled
and the one thing I do know
is that committee membersneed to have the facts.
That's why they're asking for
an FBI background investigation
and I believe that that wouldproduce a much better hearing.
- [Abigail] But Grassleysays the FBI investigation
is closed and the President agrees.
- I don't think the FBIreally should be involved
because they don't wanna be involved,
they say this is not really their thing.
But I think politically speaking,
the Senators will do a very good job.
- [Abigail] Trumptweeted the Supreme Court
is one of the main reasons he got elected.
Any hopes republicans arewanting, the democrats playbook.
Meanwhile, Judge Kavanaughis ready to share his story
on Monday but Dr. Ford hasnot agreed to either a private
or public hearing with the Committee.
The Committee also reached out
to the third person Ford claimed
was in the room with them, Mark Judge.
Judge refused to appearsaying in his statement
he has no memory of the alleged incident
and never saw Brett act inthe manner Dr. Ford describes.
Evangelist Franklin Graham told CBN News,
he thinks this allegation isa tactic to keep conservatives
off the bench and that weshouldn't hold people accountable
for something they did as a teenager.
- This is just an attempt to smear him.
They couldn't find anythingelse in his record.
And so this is just anattempt to smear him
and to smear his name andput a black dot on it.
And I hope the Senate is smarter than this
and they're not gonnalet this stop the process
from moving forward andconfirming this man.
- Grassley's office saysthe invitation for Dr. Ford
to testify on Monday still stands
and that nothing the FBIdoes would have any baring
on what she tells the Committee,
adding there is no reasonfor any further delay.
Reporting from Washington,Abigail Robertson, CBN News.
- Well, if this is somethingout of the democrat playbook.
If this is an 11th hour delaying tactic,
well, then shame on the democrats.
This is, talk about taking someone
and just destroying their reputation.
And then you're not willing to testify
in front of a closed hearing?
I can understand you don'twanna be on international news
but if you're makingallegations, you're saying
this person's unfit for the Supreme Court.
Well these are the verypeople that are deciding that.
The Judiciary Committeehas gotta pass that vote
in order to go to the fullSenate for confirmation.
These are the decision makers.
This is the jury, that you needto present the case before.
So, if all of this is a delaying tactic,
well then shame on the democrats.
In other news, President Trumpvisits North Carolina today
to see first hand the damageof Hurricane Florence.
John Jessup has more on thatstory from our CBN News Bureau
in Washington, John.
- That's right Gordon, thePresident's visit comes
as flood waters still coverlarge parts of the state.
The video that you're about to see
is not a river, it'sactually Interstate 40
in North Carolina.
Rivers have swelled evenhigher after Hurricane Florence
dumped trillions of gallons of water.
Coast Guard crews areworking around the clock
airlifting families to safety.
Meanwhile, in Wilmington,people are waiting in line
for hours for food and water.
Right now 10,000 peopleare still in shelters
and some have no homes to return to.
Well, North Korea has agreedto dismantle a testing site
for intercontinental ballistic missiles.
South Korea's PresidentMoon made the announcement
at a joint press briefing withNorth Korea's Kim Jong-un.
Moon says internationalinspectors will be on site
to witness the facility's closing.
The leaders also signed anagreement to establish peace
between the two Koreas,technically still at war.
U.S. religious leadersare urging companies
not to do business with Turkey
as long as American PastorAndrew Brunson remains in prison.
Turkish and American business leaders
will meet for an investmentconference next week.
Turkey's president is expected to attend
but faith leaders say he can't be trusted
as long as Brunson is in jail.
The U.S. Commission onInternational Freedom
sent a letter to PresidentTrump expressing it's concerns
about the pastor who hasbeen languishing in jail
for the past two years.
Gordon back to you.
- I agree with this.
We need to really hold Turkeyaccountable for their actions.
They've falsely accused
and falsely imprisoned Pastor Brunson.
It's all a hostage situation.
They've offered to trade him for a cleric,
a Muslim cleric that currentlylives in Pennsylvania.
That cleric and PresidentErdogan were all part
of a political movement a few years ago
and then they had a falling out.
So what Turkey wants is thisMuslim cleric to come back
to face trial andpresumably to be executed.
We should never caveinto that kind of demand.
There was a deal supposedly made
where Israel wouldrelease a Turkish citizen
in one of their jails inexchange for Pastor Brunson.
President Trump thoughtthat deal was in place
and then Turkey backed out.
Well, they need to paythe consequences here.
If you're going to be a member
of the international community,
you can't take othercitizens of other countries
and put them in jailon trumped up charges.
There has to be consequences for it.
And one of those is well,
we don't have to dobusiness with you anymore.
We'll be right back withmore of The 700 Club.
Shauntee. and Claudia weredown to their last two dollars,
a house they couldn'tsell went into foreclosure
and the couple had to file for bankruptcy.
Then at their lowest pointthey decided to began tithing.
And before long theyexperienced a total turnaround.
- [Narrator] WhenShauntee and Claudia moved
from Florida to Virginia for a new job,
they had nothing but highhopes for their future.
- We were ready for a newchange for our family.
Although we were leavingbehind many family members
and friends, it was an exciting time.
- [Narrator] The couple rented a house
while they put theirold home on the market.
Unfortunately, it was 2007and the housing market
was slowing down.
Now they had to pay for botha mortgage and their rent.
- You have to always be twosteps in trying to figure out
what you're gonna do.
So there's not a lot of peace in it
when you're just depending on yourself.
- [Narrator] In a short time Shauntee
saw his commission based income wain.
As the bills mounted they took out loans
and maxed out credit cardsjust to meet monthly expenses.
- I bought things when Iknew I didn't have the money
to pay back the credit cards.
We started using loans to pay the bills
on a house in Florida.
Things were really justgetting out of control.
- [Narrator] At one point they were down
to their last two dollars.
- We just couldn't pay anything anymore.
And it was scary because we didn't know
what we were going to do.
- [Narrator] By now theydropped the asking price
for their home down to halfof what they still owed.
But it still wouldn't sell.
Soon their house was in foreclosure
and before long they hadto file for bankruptcy.
- You have nothing and youneed that monkey off your back.
And so that was the absolute,
that was our very low point for sure.
- [Narrator] They knewthey couldn't get out
of their financial mess themselves.
So they prayed to Godand decided to tithe.
- Claudia] We realized that weneeded to be obedient to God.
- [Shauntee] Even whenwe didn't have anything,
we still tithed.
And it felt right to tithe.
- [Narrator] They also began selling
their personal belongings.
They continued to trust God to provide,
then a few months later theyfinally saw the turn around
they've been praying for.
- The jobs just startedpouring in for Shauntee.
And everything just started taking off.
We knew that it was God thatprovided for us at that moment.
It was amazing to have extra money.
- More clients, more sales,it's a miracle, it's awesome.
I wasn't scrambling to getto the bank to pay the bills,
they were paid.
- [Narrator] Shauntee andClaudia were able to save again
and they increased their giving.
Claudia also started watching The 700 Club
and they became partners.
- I liked everything that CBN did,
disaster relief, surgeries for kids.
They seem to just be all over the place
helping people and Iwanted to be part of that.
- [Narrator] Today, Shauntee and Claudia
rebuilt their credit andhave since bought a new home.
Their income has doubledand they currently give
at a founder's level.
They love to give and they love the joy
of being obedient to God.
- If you just walk in faith.
You give your tithe, give your gifts,
he will take care of you.
- He will take care ofyou, you can trust him.
Here it is from Matthew 25.
To those who use well what they are given
even more will be given andthey will have an abundance.
But from those who do nothing,
even what little theyhave will be taken away.
And Shauntee and Claudia putthose principles into practice
and you see the result.
Well, today Everette and Charlotte Collins
have paid off their mortgageand they live debt free.
It's a far cry from a few years back
when Everett was diagnosedwith stage four cancer
and was force to retire early.
Well, during that traumatic time,
Charlotte says one thing keptthe couple financially stable,
- [Narrator] Empty nestersEverette and Charlotte Collins
run a home inspectionbusiness so successful,
they can set their own hours.
- We want to work one day a week, we can
or if we want to work five days we can.
- And God's blessing us so much
we're able to go onvacations maybe twice a year.
- [Narrator] Still just a few years ago,
that company was failing.
- It was real slow, one ortwo home inspections a month.
- At one point he thought hewould have to go bankrupt.
- [Narrator] Everette andCharlotte were no strangers
to big life challenges.
Prior to starting theirhome inspection business,
Everette was diagnosedwith stage four cancer.
He had to retire early fromhis full time factory job,
sell a side business in construction
and pay all the outstanding bills.
- The doctors when they diagnosed me
they didn't know what my future was.
It was bad, it got real bad.
- It was a very scarytime and very emotional.
- [Narrator] Faced with a dwindling income
and uncertain future, theCollins say their faith in God
and obedience in giving keptthem financially stable.
- Absolutely, the tithingis what held us through.
It had 100% to do with tithing.
- [Narrator] A few monthslater, Everette's doctors
declared him cancer free.
As his energy increased hewas eager to get back to work.
That's when Everette saysthe Lord gave him an idea
for a new business.
- I told Charlotte, I said I want to go,
I want to get trained, certifiedto be a home inspector.
- [Narrator] Remarkably after paying
all the medical expensesand outstanding debts,
the couple still had the fundsto launch a new business.
But after several yearsthe company was struggling.
That's when the Collinssay a Christian friend
challenged them to increase their giving.
- He talked to a guy oneday that said, give 11%
and see what that does for you.
- He said Everette, hesaid you won't believe
what God has blessed mewith by giving 1% more.
And I said, I think I'll try that.
Because the scripture says try me
and see if I will not pour out a blessing.
- [Narrator] When the Collinsincreased their giving,
they say the turnaround intheir business was dramatic.
- It was immediate, absolutely immediate.
Now he has to turn home inspections down.
We can't get all of them.
- I give 11% and then 12 and then 13,
it just kept getting better and better.
- The business now is better than great.
And I give God all the glory for that.
- [Narrator] In under a year,the Collin's income doubled.
They were able to pay off their mortgage
and today, they live debt free.
Giving is still the top priority
and CBN is at the top of their list.
- I love giving my money to The 700 Club.
To see everything that they do,
it just makes me want to give more
than I'm giving to them now.
- When I was going throughthe toughest time in my life,
we watched it and I just gotblessed over and over and over.
- We just sewed that seed andwe've reaped the benefits.
And we are still reaping the benefits.
- Ask God what he wants you to give
and give from your heart, sew a seed
and watch what happens,God will bless you.
- Ask God to see what you should give
and give from your heart.
Here's the principle from Deuteronomy.
Love the Lord your God, walk in his ways
and keep his commands andthen you will live in increase
and the Lord your God will bless you.

- Well, Tai and Talaat McNeely are a team.
Together they encourage people
to get their financial houses in order.
That doesn't mean they'vealways seen eye to eye
when it comes to money.
In fact, there was a timewhen Talaat was holding on
to a secret and it's onethat threatened to end
their marriage before it even began.
- Tia and Talent McNeely are known
as America's number one money couple.
Through their website, His and Her Money,
they've showed millions
how to properly manage their finances.
- Never in our wildestdreams will we have seen God
take this ministry and justtake us to different places.
I mean, we speak at churches,we have our online presence.
We have almost a milliondownloads on iTunes,
over three million views on YouTube.
- [Narrator] Thingsweren't always so great
for Tai and Talaat.
As singles they had radicallydifferent spending habits.
- I never wanted toborrow and if I did borrow
I wanted to pay that money off right away.
I was taught thatanytime you borrow money,
it is your duty to pay it back.
- I wanted everythingthat was just coming out
that was brand new thathad name brands on it
but I ended up in over $30,000 in debt
and nothing good to show for it.
There was a time where I would literally
have to say a little prayeras I put the debit card
into the gas pump to get gas in my car
just hoping that it wouldn't be declined.
- [Narrator] Talaat hadstarted to change his habits
and was working hard tofix his financial problems.
But as they got closerto their wedding day,
he ran out of time and had to come clean.
- And at this point in mylife, my behavior changed
but I still had theconsequences looming over me.
This beautiful womanthat I'm about to marry
has been debt free her whole life.
So how am I gonna approach this young lady
and say hey I don't knowwhat I'm doing all the way
with this money thing.
And as a matter of fact,I'm over $30,000 in debt,
will you marry me?
- I was devastated, I mean devastated.
I felt like my wholeworld was crashing right
before my eyes.
And it wasn't necessarilythe debt because I knew
that we can overcome thedebt but it was that trust.
I was truly afraid ofwhat I was gonna encounter
through the marriage.
- [Gordon] Tai opted to pray for guidance
and felt that she shouldgive Talaat another chance.
Sometime later the couple said I do
and started on the roadto financial healing.
- I started to see that the wayI was interacting with money
was leading to me to aplace I didn't wanna get to.
I was living paycheck to paycheck,
stressed out every 27th of the month
because I had spent all my money.
And so I began to just really learn
and not just learn, not just read
but start to implementthings that I could.
I couldn't do it all and Icouldn't do it all at once.
And so I slowly over time began
to build up good money habits.
We were able to get outof debt in our first year
as a result of us comingtogether as a team
to tackle this debt.
- That first year, it still blows my mind
the way I'm even thinking about it.
The amount of money that wewere throwing at that debt
and the amount of money thatwas coming into the household.
I was actually in a salesposition at the time
and I saw God reign on that.
He started to bless me to make my numbers
and over exceed my numbers.
- [Gordon] The McNeely'swere able to pay off the debt
and they even began to save money.
Those savings came in handy when Talaat
was in graduate school.
And a pregnant Tai had toleave work due to an injury.
- There was a time, a period of months
where neither one of ushad income coming in.
- During this time, we sawGod's hand as never before.
And we know its without a shout of a doubt
because we always continue to give.
He took that money and it was almost like
he allowed it to stretch.
- We had savings that Godhad been preparing us for.
We didn't know we were being prepared for
but he was preparing us for this moment.
And I believe that the biggest reason why
none of our bills were ever behind.
We didn't face any bankruptcy,
we didn't face any repossessions.
We didn't go without foodwas because at no point
did we ever stop giving.
- God was always our sourcehe was our sustainer.
There was nothing thatwas going to ever allow me
to say let's stop giving.
- [Gordon] The couple becameso outspoken about God's care
in their time of need thatpeople began asking them
for financial advice.
- And we would began toanswer these questions
and help people and give them ideas
and give them strategiesand we found that wow,
we really like doing this.
We really felt the joy ofthe Lord as we were helping
his people become betterstewards of their money.
- [Gordon] That passionled to their ministry,
His and Her Money.
And through that books, conferences
and television appearances.
- Keep in mind that youcannot afford not to give.
The number one thing that I feel has made
the biggest impact in myfinances today was giving.
- Here's the principle, it'sfrom Proverbs, chapter 11.
It is possible to giveaway and become richer.
It's also possible to hold on too tightly
and lose everything.
Yes, the liberal man shallbe rich by watering others,
he waters himself.
Tai and Talaat put thatprinciple into practice
and you see the result.
The same thing will happen to you
because God watches overhis word to perform it.
He is the source of ideas, he's creative.
He wants to bless his children.
All he's looking for is foryou to do it in accordance
with his commands, when you do it his way
then the blessings come.
If you'd like to starta lifetime of giving,
give us a call 1-800-700-7000.
Just say yes, I wanna bea member of The 700 Club.
It's $20 a month, that's 65 cents a day.

Right now, CBN's Operation Blessing
is on the ground in NewBern, North Carolina
bringing people much needed relief.
Take a look.
- [Narrator] The aftermathof Hurricane Florence
continues to take it's tollon New Bern, North Carolina.
- We say, okay, we've beenthrough storms before,
no problem but we did not realize
that it was gonna havethe impact that it had.
- [Narrator] With mostpeople still in shelters
and unable to returnto their flooded homes,
Operation Blessing had teamed up
with Without Limits Christian Center
to meet the community'smost immediate needs.
- We've been able to bringin a 26 foot box truck
and then now we've been able to bring in
our tractor trailer truck fullof emergency relief supplies,
like hygiene kits, water,Home Depot flood buckets.
- [Narrator] James Macgyveris the church's pastor.
- Because what happens is as a church,
we're always gonna do whatever we can
but in a disaster like this,we don't have enough resources
to do it by ourselves.
So we prayed that God wouldraise up somebody to help
and then next thing I know,you guys are bringing trucks
and bringing supplies.
In just a few days, we have been able
to help so many people.
- It's made my day.
- [Narrator] Pearlie is justone of hundreds we've helped.
- I got like, toothpaste, toothbrush,
Q-tips, cleaning stuff.
You know, stuff I didn't have,
'cause I lost everythingso I ain't have nothing.
And finding out that this is here,
it's been a blessing for me'cause I really do need it,
me and my mom.
- [Narrator] With the powerstill out in much of New Bern,
we're now also helpingto provide hot meals
for the community.
- We've had people inbox us, email us
and tell us hey, we haven'thad a hot meal in two days
or three days or four days.
After awhile, it kind of wears on you.
So for them to be able tocome and get a hot meal,
even get the suppliesthat you guys have given,
it really kind of givesthem a sense of strength,
a sense of joy and kind ofreally reignites their faith.
And say okay, I've justgotta stay in the fight.
I've just gotta keep going,I'm gonna get through this.
- I'm crying for joy tohave something warm to eat.

Well the little girl in ournext story was two years old
before her parentsdiscovered she was deaf.
And they spent all their money
on nerve damage therapy to no avail.
Then her mother began to pray to God
for someone to help her and before long
that prayer was answered.
- [Narrator] As atoddler, KeXin had a smile
that won over everyone around her.
No one questioned her lackof communication skills
until she was two.
- [Interpreter] A friendasked if she was speaking yet?
I didn't think it was a big deal.
Then my friend said herdaughter start talking
at one and half andmaybe KeXin couldn't talk
because she couldn't hear.
- [Narrator] So Mrs.Zhang did an experiment.
She made some loud noise butKeXin barely paid attention.
- [Interpreter] Then we asked her
to blow out her birthday candles.
She didn't respond.
- [Narrator] The Zhang's tooktheir daughter to a doctor
and found out there wasnerve damage in her ears
and she was deaf.
- [Interpreter] I couldn't help but cry.
And I never cried before.
I wish so much that I couldjust give her my ears.
- [Narrator] The couplespent their entire savings
on nerve growth injections.
But after six months,KeXin still couldn't hear.
As friends found out she was deaf,
they started treating her differently
and she began to withdraw.
- [Interpreter] When she saw strangers,
she just hid behind me.
Everything was quiet in her world.
She couldn't hear thebirds sing or hear music.
She needed hearing aids, sowe sold our wedding jewelry
and my husband left from meand got a construction job

Well after his father died,
Barry McGarrh had one desperate prayer,
to honor the promise he made
to turn the family business around.
His wife Joanne came upwith a plan to do just that
from something she learnedwhile watching The 700 Club.
- [Narrator] Barry and JoanMcGarrh run Bluegrass Transport
and Expediters, asuccessful trucking business
in Henderson Kentucky.
Barry's been part of thecompany for 30 years,
every since he was a young man
and started driving for his dad.
- That was his wholedream is to have something
that he could pass onto his kids.
- [Narrator] But just a few years ago,
they were on the verge oflosing the family business.
Before Barry's father passed away in 2011,
Barry made him a promise.
- Just told him that Iwould do everything I can
to turn his business around.
- [Narrator] By September,the company was down
to eight trucks.
- I'm going by our next doorneighbor's trucking company
and they had some newtrucks parked out front.
And I said, Lord, would youtake us back to that day
that we could buy new trucks like that.
And I told God, I said,I would like to thank
that I can make Dad proud toturn this business around.
- [Narrator] Even though times were tough,
Barry and Joanne werecommitted to tithing.
It's a concept they learnedfrom watching The 700 Club.
- I was hearing other people's testimonies
of going through afinancial challenge, giving
and it's when they gavethat God blessed back.
And it was a conviction, so in my heart
that I really felt likethis is going to be
the ultimate test for us togive at this crucial, crossroads
in our lives.
And I just felt like I had enough faith
that once we gave that's when
we were going to reallysee the blessing come.
- [Narrator] Not only did Joanneand Barry continue tithing,
they decided to make apledge to CBN in faith
from their business account.
A couple of weeks later afriend and business associate
called Barry at work with an idea.
- He wanted to beone-third partner with us
and so it's been aperfect match right away,
I mean, we started holding our own.
- [Narrator] In the last seven years
the business had donemore than hold it's own.
In fact, it's tripled.
The company has grownfrom 13 employees to 40
and from eight trucks to 33.
Barry says he knows thathis dad would be proud.
- I sure would like for mydad to know that this business
has turned around and so today,
I mean, it's just adifference in night and day
and what God's blessing has been.
- [Narrator] Barry andJoanne see it all as a result
of their obedience through giving.
- We can see a definite correlation
with an answer to theprayer our giving to CBN
and God bringing us out of that situation.
- Partnering with CBN is special to us
because it's not just whatwe believe God can do for us
by our giving but it's also to know
that you're given themessage of testimonies
and to think how many more people
are out there hearing themessage of the gospel.
- He will come through,God will make a way
where it seems like there is no way.
- Sending the message ofthe gospel around the world
that's what CBN is all about.
We want to see the wholeworld know about Jesus.
And whether that's throughour testimony shows
where hosts pray for people in countries
in their own language,using stories of what Jesus
is doing in their country,not some far away time
or far away place butright where they are.
And then the impact of Superbook,
how that's changing all generations.
