(dynamic music)

- [Announcer] The followingprogram is sponsored by CBN.

(inspirational music)

- Well welcome to The 700 Club.

President Trump's nomineefor attorney general

has pledged to protect RobertMueller's investigation.

In his confirmation hearing yesterday,

William Barr told senatorshe won't be bullied

by Congress, the media,or even the president.

- Still, Democratic senatorsbelieve he's partial

to the president.

Some pressed him to committo giving up oversight

of the Russian investigation.

Charlene Aaron has the story.

- Right out of the gate

Senate Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham

addressed critics' mainconcerns about Bob Barr.

Will he protect the Mueller investigation?

- On my watch Bob will beallowed to finish his work.

- Do you believe MisterMueller would be involved

in a witch hunt against anybody?

- I don't believe MisterMueller would be involved

in a witch hunt.

- [Charlene] Barr insisted he would resist

any outside pressure

to improperly influence the investigation.

- I will not be bulliedinto doing anything

I think is wrong by anybody,whether it be editorial boards

or Congress or the president.

- [Charlene] Unlike hispredecessor, Jeff Sessions,

Barr refused to commit to recusing himself

from the Russia investigation.

- Let's imagine it's a judgment call,

and the judgment by thecareer ethics officials

in the agency are thatyou recuse yourself?

- Then--- Under what scenario

would you not follow their recommendation?

- If I disagreed with it.

- And what would the basisof that disagreement be?

- I came to a different judgment.

- On what basis?

- The facts.

- Such as?

- Such as whatever factsare relevant to the recusal.

- [Charlene] Barr also explained his memo

to DOJ officials defending President Trump

from accusations of obstruction.

- I was speculating.

I freely said it at the beginning.

I was writing in the dark,and we're all in the dark.

Every lawyer, every talking head,

everyone who thinksabout or talks about it

doesn't have the facts.

- [Charlene] On CBN News's Faith Nation,

Andrew Coan, author and professor

of law at the University ofArizona suggested Barr's sharing

of the memo with thepresident's legal advisors

raises concern, but Barrwill likely be confirmed.

- And I do think that thatraises some real questions

about his ability tosupervise this investigation.

And partially I think he'sgoing to be confirmed,

but I think there's relativelylittle doubt about that.

- Barr said under JusticeDepartment guidelines

Mueller's findings would be confidential.

But that in the interest of transparency

he would then release hisown summary of the report

to the public and Congress.

Meanwhile, when it comesto questionable moments

inside the DOJ, like thoseanti-Trump text messages

between former FBI agentsLisa Page and Peter Strzok,

Barr promised to look into it.

Charlene Aaron, CBN News.

- In other news, a groupaffiliated with al-Qaeda

carried out a deadlyterror attack in Kenya.

Efrem Graham has morefrom our CBN News room.

- Gordon, at least 15 people,including one American,

died in that attack.

Four gunmen stormed a luxury hotel

popular with westerners in Nairobi.

Anti-terrorist squads responded

going room to room to clear the hotel.

Explosions and gunfireheard into the evening

even after the attack was declared over.

The Islamist terrorist group al-Shabaab

has claimed responsibility.

The Somali-based group hascarried out several attacks

in neighboring Kenya.

British Prime Minister Theresa May

faces a no-confidence votetoday after a huge defeat

of her Brexit plan in parliament Tuesday.

British lawmakers heatedlydebated May's plan

for Britain's departurefrom the European Union.

The deal is likened to a divorce

and everything, from trade totravel, is being negotiated.

The UK remains divided over Brexit

with protestors on both sides

gathering outside parliament.

May, though, is expected tosurvive that no-confidence vote.

Here at home the IRS isrecalling furloughed workers

to process tax refunds.

Some 46,000 employees,nearly 60% of its workforce,

The workers will not be performing audits

or providing taxpayerassistance during the shutdown.

Remember, you can alwaysget more on this story

We'll be right back with much more

of today's 700 Club right after this.

(inspirational music)

- Well after her husband lefther with three young children,

Maria Miller couldn'topen a checking account

or get a credit card.

Before long, she was on food stamps

and dependent on herparents to pay her rent.

Well today she lives in her dream home

and runs her own real estate business.

Maria's complete reversalof fortune all began

with a phone call closelyfollowed by a stroke of her pen.

- [Narrator] Maria Millermay be in her mid 70s,

but she has more energy thansome people half her age.

- I do a lot of Zumba,usually three times a week,

an hour each time.

I really enjoy it, so much so, I decided

to become an instructor.

- [Narrator] And that's not all she does.

Maria is also the president ofher own real estate company.

- This is Maria, yes?

- She loves helping peoplefind their dream home

and remembers when there was no way

she could buy one herself.

After her divorce, shehad liens against her.

She couldn't open a checkingaccount or get a credit card.

I was left with three kids to raise,

so there wasn't muchmoney (laughing) at all.

We struggled just to pay rent.

And for a time I was onSection Eight and food stamps.

We ate a lot of rice, a lot of hamburger.

- [Narrator] Friends helped her get a car,

and her parents used theirsocial security income

to pay her rent.

Still, Maria needed afinancial breakthrough.

She gave at church andwatched The 700 Club.

While she'd supported CBN at times,

now as a single mom working on commission,

she didn't think she could afford it.

Then one day someone from CBNcalled to check in on her,

and Maria mentioned her money problems.

- She said, "Well why don'twe pray for your finances?"

I'm, like, ah (clickstongue), why don't we?

Thank you.

So then she prayed for me, you know?

And so after I hung up, I was, like,

I need to go back and start giving again.

- [Narrator] So by faith

Maria started consistentlygiving $20 a month to CBN.

Before long, she became atop producer in her office

making twice what she'dmade the year before.

- The only reason I can think of

is those extra $20 a month.

I was, like, whoa, this works!

- [Narrator] Other agents started asking

where her success was coming from.

- Tell you my secret.

You know, you have to giveabove and beyond your tithe

to further God's kingdom.

- [Narrator] With her increased income

she paid off her debt andfaithfully gave even more.

Once, she gave a thousand dollars to CBN.

- It was like the Holy Spirit said do it.

And I just kept (laughing)making more sales.

And I thought, wow, Iwonder if I can buy a home.

- [Narrator] Soon, she wasa first-time homeowner.

Now, years later, she ownsseveral rental properties

and continues to give to CBN.

- Any time I see where CBNjust even buys a sewing machine

for somebody to make themselves sufficient

and to get out of their poverty,it just touches my heart.

To bring water to people that are drinking

from this disgusting, that'sall that money represents,

is being able to help people.

- [Narrator] Maria encourages others

who are financially stuck

to follow in her footsteps and give.

- You just gotta trust God.

You give above your tithe

to further God's kingdom, that's it.

You can't outgive God.

The more I give Him, the more I have.

And the more grateful Iam, so the more I give.

It's just never-ending.(uplifting music)

- Maria has a lot of faith.

And here it is from Hebrews:

Without faith it isimpossible to please Him,

for he who comes to God must believe

that He is, and that Heis a rewarder of those

who diligently seek Him.

Maria put it in line.

She says, "I'm going todiligently pursue God.

"I'm going to do life His way.

"I believe that He is, and He's a rewarder

"of those who do these things."

When she got all of thatstraight, the blessings came.

Well John and Becky Marshallcould buy anything they wanted,

and for six years they did just that.

Then when the housing market collapsed,

they lost everything.

And one day while Beckywas hosting her friends,

the sheriff's department came knocking.

- [Narrator] In 2004,John and Becky Marshall

started, what became, a successful

multi-million dollartelecommunications business.

For many years they enjoyed a large salary

and the lifestyle that came with it.

- I could have had anything I wanted:

motor homes, boats,excessive trips, you name it.

When you have everything that you want,

you tend to want more for some reason.

- [Narrator] But in 2010,

they lost some of their largest clients.

As a result, the couple wasforced to close their business

and sell many of their possessions.

And all they were left with

was an overwhelming amount of debt.

- I remember sitting at thekitchen table with my friends,

and the doorbell rings.

And it's the sheriff's department

serving my husband with papers.

It's just the constantdefeat, the humiliation

that you receive as a person

when you have a large amount of debt.

- [Narrator] Medicalbills and other expenses

continued to mount.

Eventually, the Marshall's

had to go on governmentassistance to buy food.

- It's depressing.

You feel like you'velost, not only control,

but the ability to provide.

- That's really hard, though,

when you're going through horrible times,

and you don't know howyou're gonna feed your kids.

- [Narrator] To make endsmeet, John began working

out of town and takingsubcontracting jobs.

Meanwhile, Becky started reading her Bible

and watched The 700 Club for comfort.

One day, Becky saw something

that changed her family's lives.

- Terry was praying.

- There's somebody else,

you are in a deep problematicfinancial situation.

You're going to see the handof God move on your behalf.

- I'm, like, that's me.

- [Narrator] Soon, Johnstarted watching with Becky,

and together they rededicated their lives

and their money to God.

In 2013, they startedtithing to their church

and giving to CBN.

- Well it starts as a gentle nudge,

and then you start to get it.

- We made a commitment to each other

that, no matter what,

we would begin to give the 10%

of whatever we had at that point.

- [Narrator] In addition to giving,

the couple started cutting their expenses,

paying off debt, andtrusting God to provide.

- It didn't matter ifwe were giving pennies

or if we were givinga large dollar amount,

the Lord was continually providing for us.

- [Narrator] Within ayear of giving to CBN,

John was able to stop traveling for work.

He opened a new business, andit was an immediate success.

And within nine months, helanded a prime contract.

- Every single week we've had the money

to pay our employees.

We've had the money to grow.

It's always worked out.

(billiard balls clacking)

- [Narrator] Within twoyears after the Marshalls

opened their business,their customer base tripled.

Along with it, they've been able

to triple their giving to CBN.

They say they owe all theirsuccess to giving to God first.

- We have been faithful to our church here

and to CBN Ministries with our money.

And because of that faithfulness,

God's given us more, andwe've been able to give more.

If you have any doubtin your mind, any doubt,

to trust God with $1,10 cents, $20, do it.

He will see you throughthe most difficult time.

And He will bless you.

- Well John and Rebecca arewalking out the I wills of God.

You find 'em in Psalm 91.

Well here are some promises.

Here's just one of them from verse 15:

He will call on me, and I will answer him.

I will be with him in trouble,

I will deliver him and honor him.

And here is John andRebecca, they're going

through the dishonor of havinga sheriff knock on your door.

They're going through that.

But the I wills of God: I will honor you,

I will deliver you, I will answer you,

I will be with you in time of trouble,

all came true for them.

Why?

Because they said we'regoing to do it God's way.

We're going to live life God's way.

When you do that, then the I wills of God

can come true for you.

Now I've got some wonderful news.

- Americans are carrying

over one and a half trillion dollars

of student loan debt.

Fallon Scott's share of that burden

was enough to stress herout, cause her to lose sleep,

then to lose her hair.

One day, Fallon felt ledto make a $1,000 gift,

and that helped her pay offnearly $200,000 in loans.

- [Narrator] Fallon Scottgraduated from Baylor University

in 2009 with a master'sdegree in accounting.

But she didn't need to be a numbers whiz

to see she had a huge problem.

- I actually borrowed over a 100 grand,

about a 150 grand in student loan debt.

Then for me it was theamount that had accrued

to the principal, the amount of interest

that had accrued during that time.

That's when the burden, like,that's when it really hit me,

when I realized I owed over 200 grand.

By the time I left school,that's when I felt,

I mean, I don't even have words

for the amount of pressure,stress, hair falling out,

from the weight of that number.

- [Narrator] Fallon got a job,

but the massive debt was still there.

She struggled to pay itdown whenever she could.

- I think it was even more stressful

to come from a backgroundof finance and accounting,

knowing what you need tobe doing with your money

and not being able to do that every day.

I mean, paycheck topaycheck was a good week.

I was paycheck to credit card to paycheck.

Yeah, there was no...

There just wasn't enough,just wasn't enough.

It had me in a very, not justphysically sick, stressed,

but in a very bad place emotionally.

And even spiritually, like, God, why me?

You know, like, why, why?

Like, how am I gonna get out of this?

- [Narrator] Fallon's father is a pastor,

and she learned aboutthe importance of giving

growing up in their church.

She decided to give anextra $1,000 at her church

after her pastor spoke about the blessings

of giving to others.

- It was very specific aboutsowing a seed and just,

I don't remember if it wasto get out of your situation,

or if it was specifically about business,

but I knew in that momentthat I had to sow it.

And I feel like God was,like, if you just trust Me

and watch what I do in a year,

and it was pretty mucha year from that seed

that shifted everything.

- [Narrator] A friend toldFallon about a job opportunity.

So she decided to check it out.

She started her new job in 2014.

- When it'd taken me fiveyears and two degrees

and a CPA license to earn, Ihad done that in five months.

Another five months, by my 10th month,

I actually earned a $50,000 bonus.

And then the next monthI got a $100,000 bonus

and was bringing homefive figures every month

and really able to get myself

back where I needed to be physically,

spiritually, and financiallyand then help others

do the same.

- [Narrator] Fallon was even able

to pay off her credit carddebts and her car loan.

And when she married DeVon in 2017,

they were able to pay for thewedding out of their savings.

Today the couple continues toput God first in all they do.

And Fallon plans to pay off

the remainder of her studentloan within two years.

- So what was God's role in this?

I mean, it's laughable now,but every little piece,

He was just, like, just wait, just wait.

I've got it planned out.

I know what God will do when you sow

and do it from a trustingand believing place,

and a trusting and abelieving expectant place.

(uplifting music)

- Sowing from a trusting place,

and here's a promise for you:

If you will only obeyme and let me help you,

then you will have plenty.

That promise is for you.

All He's looking for is your obedience.

And just with Fallon,and when she said, "Okay,

"I'll sow a seed,"

and she sowed it expectantly

and a turn around thatwas absolutely miraculous.

Wonderful things happen when you obey God

when you do it His way.

- Well when you do join The 700 Club,

you're helping people all over the world,

like a little girl named Lilly.

Lilly was born with acleft lip and palate.

She was also born with an older sister

who did everything she could

to help Lilly get the surgery she needed.

It just wasn't enough.

(charming music)

- [Terry] YanYan's dreamcame true when she heard

that she was finally goingto have a little sister.

- [Translator] I wanted herlife to be beautiful and free,

like a butterfly.

So I saved all my pocket money

and bought her a butterfly dress.

I hoped it would bring her good luck.

- [Terry] But Lilly was bornwith a cleft lip and palate.

- [Translator] I rememberwhen my mother started

giving her baths.

I was afraid that the waterwould go into her mouth

where the cleft lip was, and she'd choke.

I didn't even want to hold her.

I was scared of hurting her.

- [Translator] She couldn'teat bread or drink milk powder,

so she was very thin.

Once, she caught such a bad cold

that we thought she might die.

- [Translator] I wasafraid that the high fever

might burn her brain.

- [Terry] The cleft lipkept her from communicating.

- [Translator] When she was hungry,

she pointed at the bowland then at her mouth.

I was concerned that shewouldn't be able to talk

in the future.

- [Terry] As she got older,

Lilly started noticing her lip herself.

- [Translator] She pointed at her mouth

in front of the mirror,like she wanted to know

why she wasn't like other people.

It made me so sad.

- [Translator] We were anxious,

especially when I saw herhiding her mouth with her hand.

- [Translator] She wantedme to buy her a mask

so other people wouldn't laugh at her.

I told her Daddy will fix your lip.

- [Terry] But he and hiswife couldn't do it alone,

so YanYan started working in the fields

from four in the morninguntil ten at night.

- [Translator] SometimesI would see butterflies.

It helped me to go on.

I took it as a sign thatone day my sister's mouth

would be cured, andshe would be beautiful.

- [Terry] But the Zhangs were never able

to raise enough money for that to happen.

Mr. Zhang started lookingeverywhere for help,

and every organizationrefused him, except for CBN.

We made sure Lilly gotsurgery, free of charge.

- [Translator] Hermouth is totally healed!

I'm so happy!

- [Translator] She's healthy and can eat

with no problems now.

- [Translator] I wantto thank the good people

at CBN who did this.

She doesn't even have a scar.

She's very cheerful.

She speaks very clearlyand is as beautiful

as a butterfly, exactlywhat I always hoped for!

(uplifting music)

- This little girl'ssmile lights up the room.

Well leaves boiled in water, some days

that's all Marta and herthree children had to eat.

Other days they had nothinguntil Marta received a hand up

for the very first time in her life.

- [Narrator] Isaiah knew how hard it was

for his mom to providefood for the family.

So he went searching near his home

for wild plants and roots to cook.

- [Translator] I foundsomething called chipilin.

It is a little like a spinach

that adds some flavor to the boiled water.

- [Translator] He collects theplants and I make the broth.

- [Narrator] But this flavored broth

provided only a few calories.

Marta and the children were starving.

- [Translator] Some dayswhen I can't find work,

I say, I am sorry children,

today we're not going to be able to eat.

Tomorrow I will see what I can do.

- [Narrator] Marta is a singlemom raising three children.

Her husband abandoned them four years ago.

(speaking in a foreign language)

- [Translator] We are allstruggling to survive.

- [Narrator] So OperationBlessing met with Marta

and trained her to run a business.

Then we delivered a largeamount of flour, eggs,

and other staples tosell right from her home.

- [Translator] Even whenI had them in my hands,

I couldn't believe it,

because I have never receivedhelp like this, never.

- [Narrator] Business hasbeen brisk over the past year,

and Marta earns $250 a month in profits,

plenty to support her family

and provide enough for them to eat.

- [Translator] Having a place to sleep

and having something to eat every day

is the best thing thatever happened to us.

- [Translator] Thanks, Operation Blessing

for helping our family.(uplifting music)

Well when Travis lost hisjob just before the holidays,

he and his wife Cara could have panicked.

Instead, they relied on God's promise

to provide for their family.

And that's exactly what happened.

- [Narrator] Travis andCara cherish spending time

with their two young daughters.

But just a few years ago,family time was rare.

Travis was working long hours

away from home as a plant manager.

- I saw my kids usuallyfour days every two weeks.

- [Narrator] After 12 yearswith the same company,

Travis expected a promotion.

But in 2016, just beforeThanksgiving, he was laid off.

Cara was a stay-at-home mom,

so it was a blow to their family's income,

but not to their faith.

- God provides.

It's not the job.

It's not the things that we do.

But He will take care of all of our needs,

and living that out is reallyhard (laughing) sometimes.

- [Narrator] Travis andCara prayed strategically

about their needs.

As homeschoolers with two young children,

they felt the pressure,

but they never stoppedtithing or giving to CBN.

(door shutting)Less than two months later,

Travis was offered a newjob making more money,

plus he wasn't traveling as much.

- So I see my (sneezing)my kids twice as much

as what I used to.

- And to see that worked out,

it strengthened our relationshipand our marriage, as well.

- [Narrator] Travis andCara were so grateful

they decided to increasetheir giving to CBN.

For them it's all about faith and trust.

- CBN honors the money that you give,

and it's at work in thelives of other people.

And that's one of the reasons

that I'm most excited about CBN.

There's a heart for Christ,

a heart for shining God'slove out into the world

and for caring for people.

And that's really themission, the great commission.

And so that's why we love CBN.

- I think CBN ends uptouching many of the areas

of the world that you asan individual cannot touch.

- God will return much morethan what you've given,

because whatever you've released to him,

he will return to you.(uplifting music)

- Be a part of it.

Veronica began to lose all hope.

was born with a cleft lip,

Veronica felt like Godmust be punishing her.

- [Translator] I rememberasking God what I did wrong.

Some people said that Faith was cursed,

but I never believed it.

I thought God was angry at me.

- [Narrator] When OperationBlessing found out

about Faith's cleft lip, wearranged for her surgery.

Then we learned about theirterrible living conditions

and Veronica's asthma, so,we built them a new house.

and helped her start a small business

selling daily necessities.

- [Translator] I have theonly shop in this area.

When my neighbors need help,

I'll buy their beans to support them

and later sell it at a profit.

It's an amazing feeling beingable to provide for my family

and help my community.

- [Narrator] Her business is doing so well

that her husband will soon comehome to help her expand it.

- [Translator] The Lord is my shepherd.

He is our provider.

Thank you so much foreverything you have done for us.

May God bless you forhaving such giving hearts.

- Boy, everyone wasblessed in this situation,

not just Veronica and herhusband and their family,

but the entire community around them.

She has the only opportunityto sell the goods

that they need to buy.

Jim and Rose Langwellbegan living in a camper

with their three children.

in this borrowed camperon her sister Dawn's

and her husband Randy's property.

Despite that part of Randy and Dawn's roof

I will do anything to tryand repay them for this.

I mean, it's just huge.

- [Narrator] Jim and rose planned

to move into another rentalhome as soon as possible.

But they wouldn't have any furniture

unless they bought whatthey needed on credit.

- We finally didn't owe anyoneor any bank or anything,

and we were in a really good spot,

a really comfortable spot.

And then just in the blink of an eye,

now we're facing that again.

- We struggled before, andGod always pulls us through,

so, I'm hopeful.

- [Narrator] Their situation changed,

because the Lord's Table Church

contacted CBN's Helping the Home Front.

Myroslava lived her with herhusband and three children

in this drafty house withpeeling paint and a leaky roof.

He loved the children and helped me.

Then my world fell apart.

- [Terry] After he died,Myroslava sold everything

to pay for the funeral.

- [Translator] We had nothing.

I had no stove, no furniture.

The house was empty, the walls were raw,

and we were starving.

- [Terry] Desperate, Myroslava sent

her two older children tolive with their grandma.

Myroslava kept the baby with her

since he was nursing at the time

and there was no extraroom at her in-laws.

This is Myroslava's6-year-old daughter Snezhana.

- [Translator] I love my mom very much.

I wanted to stay with her, butshe didn't have even a bed.

- [Terry] That's whenCBN's Orphans Promise began

to work with the family.

First we provided construction materials

and then hired a crew to build a new house

for Myroslava and her children.

- [Translator] When my children saw

what a beautiful houseyou were building for us,

they could hardly wait for us to move in.

a stove, and other furniture.

It's warm in here, andI like it very much.

to become a Christian.

- [Translator] I'm sohappy that my children

have all they need.

I'm full of joy and so grateful to you.

Thank you so much!

under those circumstances?

Can I just say, 700 Club members,
