The 700 Club - January 18, 2013

Dale's real estate job crashed with the economy. Desperate and living in a cheap motel, he received a revelation from God and took courageous action that freed him financially. Read Transcript


[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

A MAJOR SNOWSTORM HIT THE

SOUTHEAST, LEAVING UP TO A

FOOT OF SNOW IN SOME

PLACES.

Terry: ONE MAN DIED

WHEN HIS CAR HIT A DOWNED

TREE, AND TENS OF THOUSANDS

LOST POWER.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE FIRST

STORM OF THE WINTER SEASON

FOR MANY IN THE SOUTH, AND

IT LED TO A TOUGH EVENING

COMMUTE.

UP TO A HALF A FOOT OF SNOW

FELL IN AREAS OF

MISSISSIPPI, MAKING IT

NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO DRIVE.

IN VIRGINIA, STATE POLICE

WERE FLOODED WITH CALLS

DURING THE WORST OF THE

STORM.

DISPATCHERS RECEIVING MORE

THAN 700 CALLS.

IT LED TO A NIGHTMARE ON THE

INTERSTATES.

IT TOOK ME AN HOUR TO

DRIVE A MILE AND A HALF.

THE SNOW KEPT COMING DOWN

AND THINGS STARTED GETTING

SLOWER AND SLOWER.

IT WAS THERE FOR THREE TO

FOUR HOURS, FOR SURE.

Reporter: ALONG WITH

THE SNOW, THE STORM BROUGHT

WITH IT STRONG WINDS.

A RALEIGH MAN SAYS A TREE

FELL INTO HIS CAR, NARROWLY

MISSING HIS HOUSE.

WE HEARD A LOUD RUMBLING

NOISE, AND I THOUGHT IT WAS

MY KIDS JUMPING ON BEDS, BUT

WE LOOKED OUTSIDE AND SAW

THE TREE.

Reporter: NEW MOM,

REBECCA, ENJOYED THE SNOW,

EVEN WITH HER POWER OUT.

WE'RE GOING TO SIT BY THE

FIRE, STAY WARM, AND WAIT

FOR OUR FIRST SNOW.

Reporter: THE SOUTHEAST

HAS BEEN HIT HARD BY THE

NATION'S WORST DROUGHT IN

DECADES.

EXPERTS SAY RAIN AND SNOW

ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST THIS

WINTER IS CRUCIAL.

ABOUT A THIRD OF MISSISSIPPI

IS IN DROUGHT, AND MORE THAN

91% OF GEORGIA.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: DROUGHT RELIEF

FROM THIS IS GOOD NEWS.

AND THE OTHER GOOD NEWS IS

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS WAIT A

FEW HOURS, AND IT WILL ALL

MELT AWAY.

POLITICAL LEADERS INP

WASHINGTON ARE TRYING TO

GAIN THE FREEDOM OF A

CHRISTIAN PASTOR IN IRAN.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY.

Lee: MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS WANT IRAN TO

RELEASE AN IRANIAN REVEREND

PASTOR.

HE FACES TRIAL ON MONDAY ON

WHAT ARE BELIEVED TO BE

TRUMPED UP CHARGES RELATED

TO THIS CHRISTIAN FAITH.

HE COULD FACE THE DEATH

PENALTY.

IRANIAN SOLDIERS ARRESTED

HIM.

THEY HAVE NOW DENOUNCED HIS

IMPRISONMENT AND

PROSECUTION.

12 SENATORS AND 37 HOUSE

MEMBERS ARE URGING THE

SECRETARY OF STATE TO TAKE A

MORE ACTIVE ROLE IN SEEKING÷

ABADINA'S RELEASE.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE IS ALSO PLEADING

HIS CASE.

TWO PEOPLE ARE MAKING A

PUBLIC GESTURE OF BACKING

PRESIDENT OBAMA WITH

PRAYER.

Reporter: ROD SHANK,

AND PAT MAHONEY ARE PASTORS

WHO KNOW MANY EVANGELICALS

ARE UPSET WITH THE ELECTION

RESULTS.

BUT THEY WANT TO LET NONE OF

THAT RELIEVES THEM OF THEIR

OBGATION TO PRAY FOR

PRESIDENT OBAMA.

IN TIMOTHY, WE'RE TOLD TO

PRAY FOR OUR LEADERS.

THERE IS NO AFTE ASTERISK.

IT IS SOMETHING WE'RE ALL

OBLIGATED TO DO, AND THE

BIBLE SAYS THIS PLEASES GOD,

OUR SAVIOR.

I SAY, DO YOU NEED ANY MORE

REASONS THAN THAT?

IT PLEASES GOD.

Reporter: THE STATE

ACTION BUILDING IS RIGHT

ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE

SUPREME COURT.

ON INAUGURATION DAY, TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WILL

PASS BY.

WE'RE GOING TO SEE A LOT

OF PEOPLE DOING THIS,

BECAUSE BANNERS CAPTURE

ATTENTION, AND AS FAR AS I

KNOW, WE'RE THE ONLY BETTER

THAN ANYWHERE IN VIEW.

Reporter: THE

INAUGURATION ITSELF WILL BE

HELD FOUR BLOCKS FROM HERE,

BUT FOUR YEARS AGO,

PRESIDENT OBAMA DID STOP BY

TO PAY A COURTESY CALL.

IF HE DOES THAT, SHE LIKELY

TO DRIVE RIGHT BY THIS

BETTER THAN, THAT LET'S HIM

NOW PEOPLE OF FAITH ARE

PRAYING FOR HIM.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Lee: AVAILETH MUCH.

Gordon: I HOPE WE'RE

ALL PRAYING FOR THE

PRESIDENT.

TALK ABOUT CHALLENGING

TIMES, WHETHER YOU'RE

DEALING WITH THE DEFICIT,

TRYING TO GET THE BILLS

PASSED THROUGH CONGRESS, HE

NEEDS PRAYER.

SO POLICE B PLEASE BE

PRAYING FOR HIM AND PRAYING

FOR WISDOM.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: LAST FALL, CORY

CARTER STARTED COLLEGE WITH

A PART-TIME JOB, AND A CAR

THAT WAS OLDER THAN HE WAS.

WHEN IT DIED, HE DIDN'T HAVE

A LOT OF MONEY TO SPEND ON A

NEW ONE.

BUT CORY FOUND A WAY TO GET

THE CAR HE WANTED AT HALF

THE PRICE.

Reporter: 18-YEAR-OLD

CORY CARTER HAS BEEN

LEARNING A LOT OF THINGS HIS

FIRST YEAR OF COLLEGE.

BUT WHAT HE HAS LEARNED

ABOUT MANAGING HIS MONEY

CAME FROM WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

I WOULD WATCH IT EVERY

MORNING.

GORDON WAS TALKING ABOUT

TITHING, AND GOD GIVES IT

BACK TO YOU WHEN YOU TITHE.

ONE DAY I FELT LIKE GOD WAS

MOVING ME TO JOIN.

Reporter: CORY WASN'T

SURE ABOUT MAKING THE

COMMITMENT TO TITHE,

ESPECIALLY SINCE HIS HOURS

HAD BEEN CUT AT THE GROCERY

STORE, WHERE HE WORKS.

HE BECAME A "700 CLUB"

ANYWAY.

I GAVE MY FIRST CHECK,

AND THEN I WALK IN AND I

LOOK AT MY SCHEDULE, AND I(B B

WAS LIKE, HUH, THAT'S A

LITTLE STRANGE.

I'M BACK UP TO 28 HOURS.

Reporter: AND CORY ALSO

NEEDED A NEW CAR BECAUSE HIS00

OLD ONE WAS READY FOR THE

JUNK PILE.

IT LOOKED HIDEOUS, WAS

UGLY AS SIN.

I JUST WANTED A FORD RANGER

THAT WAS BLUE.

I WAS LOOKING ON CRAIGSLIST,

AND THEY WERE ALL $8,000,

$7,000.

Reporter: CORY ENLISTED

HIS SUN UNCLE TO HELP HIM.

I GOT THAT CALL ONE DAY

AND HE SAYS, I HAVE A BLUE

FORD STANDARD.

AND I SAID, I'LL TAKE IT HOW

MUCH IS IT?

IT MUST BE BE $7,000, OR

$8,000.

AND HE SAID, I JUST TALKED

THEM DOWN TO TWO GRAND.

TITHING, YOU GET REWARDS AND

BLESSINGS FOR IT.

IT IS NOT JUST STRAIGHT

CASH.

I THINK I ONLY GOT THAT

VEHICLE BECAUSE I TITHED,

AND I TOOK THAT RISK.

Reporter: CORY SAYS HE

ESPECIALLY LOVES GIVING TO

CBN.

IF YOU WANT YOUR MONEY TO

REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE, TO

GO SOMEWHERE, GIVE TO CBN.

THEY SHOW YOU WHERE IT

GOES.

"ORPHANS' PROMISE." THEY GO

INTO ANY COUNTRY THAT NEEDS

HELP.

THEY ROLL THE TRUCKS IN,

THEY DON'T CARE WHAT IT

TAKES, AND THEY HELP

PEOPLE.

Reporter: CORY STILL

TITHES FAITHFULLY, AND HE IS

CONFIDENT THAT GOD WILL

CONTINUE TO PROVIDE.

WHEN I TALK TO PEOPLE

ABOUT IT, I ALWAYS THE THEM

THAT, YOU KNOW, IT IS GOING

TO BE GIVEN BACK TO YOU.

YOU SHOULDN'T TITHE JUST TO

GET MONEY BACK.

YOU SHOULD JOYFULLY GIVE,

BUT DON'T THINK YOU'RE

THROWING YOUR MONEY OUT THE

WINDOW.

BECAUSE YOU WILL BE

BLESSED.

HE KEEPS HIS PROMISES.

HE HAS DONE IT FOR ME.

Gordon: GOD KEEPS HIS

PROMISES.

HE DID IT FOR CORY, AND HE

WILL DO IT FOR YOU.

"IF YOU HELP THE POOR, YOU

ARE LENDING TO THE LORD, AND

HE WILL REPAY YOU."

SOMETIMES IT IS IN VERY

TANGIBLE WAYS.

SOMETIMES IT IS INTANGIBLE

WAYS.

BUT HE WANTS TO BLESS HIS

CHILDREN.

WE DON'T HAVE TO TALK HIM

INTO IT.

HE WANTS TO DO THAT.

WHAT IS HE LOOKING FOR?

HE IS LOOKING FOR OBEDIENCE,

THAT WE DO IT IN ACCORDANCE

WITH HIS INSTRUCTIONS, HOW

HE HAS TAUGHT US.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, WHEN YOU

FOLLOW WHAT IT SAYS, THEN

THE BLESSINGS COME.

WHEN CYNTHIA LOST HER JOB,

SHE WAS OUT OF WORK FOR

SEVEN MONTHS.

IN ALL OF THAT TIME, SHE

NEVER MISSED A CAR PAYMENT

OR A MORTGAGE PAYMENT.

HERE IS HOW SHE DID IT.

I WASN'T IN CONTROL OF MY

MONEY.

MY MONEY WAS IN CONTROL OF

ME.

BECAUSE I WOULD SEE

SOMETHING, AND I WOULD GO

GET IT.

I WORKED HARD FOR IT, AND

THE VOICES TELL YOU THAT YOU

DESERVE IT.

Reporter: THAT'S THE

MINDSE MINDSET CYNTHIA

HORTON ADOPTED AS A YOUNG

CAREER WOMAN.

I WOULD CHANGE CARS EVERY

TWO YEARS BECAUSE I THOUGHT

THAT IS WHAT I WAS SUPPOSED

TO DO.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY,

MOST OF HER MONEY WENT TO

PAYING BILLS AND CREDITORS.

I REMEMBER I HAD TO WRITE

EVERYTHING DOWN, EVERYTHING

I WAS GOING TO SPEND.

IF ANYTHING CAME IN $2 OVER,

I WAS GOING TO BE IN A

BIND.

Reporter: SHE STARTED

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I STARTED HEARING THESE

PRINCIPLES THAT WERE VERY

FOREIGN TO ME.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

I REMEMBER WRITING THAT

FIRST CHECK.

I THOUGHT ANGELS WOULD BE

SINGING BECAUSE IT WAS A

HUGE STEP FOR ME.

Reporter: CYNTHIA

DIDN'T HAVE A HANDLE ON

SPENDING, THOUGH, AND HE

DEBT GREW TO $30,000.

AS LONG AS YOU CAN PAY

THAT MONTHLY PAYMENT, LIFE

IS GOOD.

IT WASN'T A GOOD WAY TO

LIVE.

Reporter: THEN SHE LOST

HER JOB.

CYNTHIA SAID SHE HAD TO RELY

SOLELY ON GOD, WHICH WASN'T

EASY FOR HER.

I SAID, GOD, I NEED YOUR

HELP.

MY MORTGAGE PAYMENT IS

DRAFTING THE NEXT DAY.

I HAD 1.87 IN MY CHECK.

Reporter: THAT NEXT

DAY, SHE RECEIVED A LOAN

OFFER AT A WHOPPING 27%

INTEREST.

CYNTHIA ADMITS SHE WAS

TEMPTED.

I THOUGHT, THIS IS A

QUICK ANSWER TO MY PROBLEM.

AND GOD SAID, IT MAY BE A

QUICK ANSWER, BUT IT IS THE

RIGHT ANSWER.

BUT I WROTE VOID ON THAT

CHECK.

HIS SPECIFIC INSTRUCTION WAS

TO CONTINUE GIVING THE SAME

AMOUNT AS WHEN I HAD A JOB.

DURING SEVEN MONTHS OF

UNEMPLOYMENT, I NEVER MISSED

A HOUSE PAYMENT, I NEVER

MISSED A CAR PAYMENT.

GOD WAS FAITHFUL.

Reporter: CYNTHIA

LANDED A JOB, AND SAID GOD

STARTED SHOWING HER WAYS TO

PAY OFF HER DEBT.

ONE OF THEM WAS TO GIVE

MORE.

HE ASKED ME TO DOUBLE MY

GIVING TO CBN.

I SAID, DOUBLE MY GIFT, I

MEAN, 20 WAS A STRETCH.

40 WAS, WOW.

Reporter: CINC CYNTHIA

INCREASED HER DEBT, AND IN

TIME PAID OFF ALL OF HER

DEBT AND IS DEBT-FREE.

SHE IS ALSO A MEMBER OF THE

CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE.

CYNTHIA SAYS SHE HAS AN

UNDERSTANDING OF GIVING AND

FAITH.

MY PHILOSOPHY IS GOD GETS

10%, 90% IS MINE.

MY PHILOSOPHY NOW IS 100% IS

GOD'S.

HE GAVE IT TO ME, ANYWAY.

THAT'S ONE OF THE PRINCIPLES

THAT I LEARNED, WHEN I GIVE

IT TO GOD, HE IS GOING TO

GIVE SO MUCH MORE WITH IT

THAN I CAN IMAGINE, AND THEN

HE BLESSES ME BACK ALONG THE

WAY.

Gordon: CYNTHIA, WHEN

SHE FIRST STARTED, SHE

THOUGHT IT WAS A FOREIGN

CONCEPT.

SHE NEVER HEARD IT BEFORE.

HERE WE CALL IT THE LAW OF

ROOF RECIPROCITY, LUKE 36:

"GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

BACK TO YOU.

A GOOD MEASURE, SHAKEN WILL

BE POURED INTO YOUR LAP.

FOR WITH THE MEASURE YOU

USE, IT WILL BE MEASURED

BACK TO YOU."

IT IS A SIMPLE PRINCIPLE,

BUT IT STARTS WITH YOU FIRST

GIVING.

SO OFTEN WE WAIT, AND WE

SAY, I'M GOING TO WAIT UNTIL

I THINK I HAVE ENOUGH.

AND THEN I'LL GIVE FROM

THAT.

IT IS THE PRINCIPLE THAT YOU

PUT INTO ACTION, AND WHEN

YOU GIVE AND WHEN YOU

INITIATE IT, THAT'S WHAT

PUTS THE WHOLE PRINCIPLE,

THE LAW OF RECIPROCITY, AND

GET IT WORKING FOR YOU.

BECAUSE WHEN YOU GIVE, IT

WILL BE GIVEN BACK TO YOU.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS.

SOME CBN DONORS, JUST LIKE

CYNTHIA, SAY WE LOVE GIVING,

WE LOVE LIVING A LIFE OF

GENEROSITY, AND WE WANT TO

CHALLENGE OTHERS TO GIVE.

SO FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES,

THEY'LL MATCH YOUR DONATIONS

$100,000.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

FOR THIS.

WE ASK FOR YOUR ANOINTING,

YOUR EMPOWERMENT, YOUR

ABILITY, AND WE ASK FOR OPEN

HEAVEN OVER THE DONORS WHO

MADE IT POSSIBLE TO ISSUE

THIS CHALLENGE.

AND FOR THOSE WATCHING,

MAKING DECISIONS NOW, I JUST

ASK THAT YOU WOULD SPEAK TO

THEM, ENCOURAGE THEM, AND

LET THEM KNOW HOW MUCH YOU

WANT TO BLESS THEM AND BE

WITH THEM.

WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT.

A $100,000 CHALLENGE.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

GORDON?

Gordon: AS A FREE LANCE

PHOTOGRAPHER, JOHN JACKSON

WAS DROWNING IN DEBT.

HE EVEN HAD TO SELL HIS CARS

JUST TO PAY HIS BILLS.

THEN ONE DAY JOHN MADE A

DECISION THAT MORE THAN

DOUBLED HIS INCOME.

Reporter: JOHN JACKSON

WORKS IN A PAINT STORE.

BUT ON THE WEEKENDS HE LOVES

WORKING AS A FREE LANCE

PHOTOGRAPHER.

HE IS ALSO A PARTNER WITH

CBN.

THEY SHOW WHAT THEY'RE

DOING EVERY DAY.

EVERY WEEK.

WHETHER IT IS ORPHANAGES,

WHETHER IT'S AROUND THE

WORLD OR HERE IN MY

NEIGHBORHOOD.

THEY SHOW WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

AND TO ME, BASED ON WHAT

I'VE LEARNED THROUGH

SCRIPTURE, THAT'S GOOD

GROUND.

THAT THAT'S GOOD GROUND,

THEN YOU'LL GET A HARVEST.

Reporter: IN 1995, JOHN

STARTED GIVING $20 A MONTH.

HE SAYS THAT SOON AFTER

THAT, GOD PROMPTED HIM TO

GIVE $84.

BUT JOHN RESISTED.

I KIND OF PUSHED IT --

I'M LIKE, I CAN'T AFFORD

THAT.

Reporter: AT THE TIME,

JOHN WAS STRUGGLING WITH HIS

FINANCES AND RIDING A BIKE

TO WORK.

HE HAD A FULL-TIME JOB AT A

LOCAL PAINT STORE, BUT HIS

CAR NEEDED EXPENSIVE

REPAIRS, AND HE HAD TO SELL

IT AT A LOSS JUST TO MAKE

ENDS MEET.

ONE DAY I WAS RIDING, AND

I WAS, LIKE, LORD I'M TIRED

OF THIS.

WHAT'S NEXT?

AGAIN, YOU NEED TO GIVE.

PLEDGE EXPRESS, THIS IS HOW

MUCH.

NOT JUST THIS MUCH, BUT

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

HE WAS SPECIFIC ON WHAT HE

WANTED ME TO DO.

Reporter: FINALLY, JOHN

INCREASED HIS PLEDGE TO $84

A MONTH.

WHEN I MADE UP MY MIND TO

DO IT, THAT'S WHEN THE

PROMOTIONS STARTED COMING.

NOW I JUST RECENTLY GOT

PROMOTED TO STORE MANAGER,

AND THAT WELL OVER DOUBLED

MY PAY.

Reporter: AND JOHN SAW

GOD AT WORK IN OTHER WAYS.

FOR ONE THING, HIS

PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS TOOK

OFF.

I'M GETTING MORE HITS ON

MY WEBSITE.

IT HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED.

IT HAS MORE THAN TRIPLED.

AND I FOUND A CAR, EXCELLENT

CONDITION, FOR $2200.

THE BLUE BOOK SAYS IT IS

WORTH $3800.

IT'S GOD.

I'M JUST FOLLOWING HIS

PRINCIPLES.

Reporter: JOHN SAYS

THAT HE LEARNED THOSE

PRINCIPLES IN PART FROM

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I HEAR CBN TALK ABOUT IT

ALL OF THE TIME.

THEY USE THE SCRIPTURE.

YOU SOW SPARELY, AND YOU

REAP SPARINGLY.

AND YOU SOW ABUNDANTLY, AND

THEN YOU REAP ABUNDANTLY.

I'VE SEEN IT IN MY OWN

LIFE.

YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO

TITHE.

YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO SOW

INTO A MINISTRY LIKE CBN.

JUST BE OBEDIENT TO GOD.

LISTEN TO WHAT HE IS TELLING

YOU.

GET INVOLVED.

PARTNER WITH CBN, AND YOU'LL

BE BLESSED.

Gordon: LISTEN TO THE

WORDS FROM ISAIAH 1: "IF YOU

WILL ONLY OBEY ME AND LET ME

HELP YOU, THEN YOU WILL HAVE

PLENTY."

JOHN LEARNED THAT AND SAID,

I'M GOING TO BE OBEDIENT,

I'M GOING TO DO WHAT GOD

TELLS ME TO DO, AND THAT LED

FOR A COMPLETE TURNAROUND

FOR HIM, AND IT CAN HAPPEN

TO YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TRUST

GOD, AND TRUST HIM WITH YOUR

FINANCES.

DO IT NOW, CALL US NOW.

SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE A

PART OF EVERYTHING YOU'RE

DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF

"OPERATION BLESSING."

I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE AROUND

THE WORLD.

IF THAT'S YOU, CALL US NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

WHEN YOU CALL, ASK FOR

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING.

YOU KNOW YOUR DONATION IS

GOING TO COME IN ON TIME

EVERY SINGLE MONTH.

WE SAVE SO MUCH ON THE

PROCESSING, WE CAN SEND AS

OUR GIFT BACK TO YOU POWER

FOR LIFE, MONTHLY TEACHING

C.D.s.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE THOSE, ASK

FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS WHEN YOU

CALL.

OR WHEN YOU SIGN UP ON

cbn.com, YOU ALL RIGHT SIGN

UP FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS.

WHEN THE HOUSING MARKET

CRASHED, DALE COULDN'T EVEN

MAKE THE MINIMUM PAYMENTS ON

HIS HOUSE.

BUT TODAY, DALE IS

COMPLETELY DEBT-FREE.

Reporter: AFTER HIS

LOSS, DALE STRUGGLED

FINANCIALLY.

BECAUSE HE WAS A REALTOR,

WHEN THE MARKET CRASHED, HIS

INCOME CRASHED WITH IT.

I ONLY GET PAID IF I SELL

SOMETHING.

I WAS A LITTLE OVER $100,000

IN DEBT IN CREDIT CARD AND

INSTALLMENT LOAN DEBT.

Reporter: DALE TRIED TO

MAKE MINIMUM PAYMENTS EACH

MONTH ON THAT DEBT, BUT EVEN

THAT WAS PROVING TO BE

POSSIBLE.

I FELT EXTREMELY

DESPERATE.

REALIZING I HAD SO MUCH

GOING OUT AND NOT ENOUGH

COMING IN TO EVEN BE CLOSE

TO MAKING THOSE PAYMENTS.

AT THAT POINT, IT WAS JUST A

NIGHTMARE.

Reporter: DALE

EVENTUALLY MOVED OUT OF HIS

HOME AND INTO A CHEAP

MOTEL.

IT HAD OLD, PANELLED

WALLS THAT WERE PAPER THIN.

YOU COULD HEAR EVERYTHING

GOING ON IN THE HOTEL.

Reporter: IT WAS AT THE

HOTEL LIKE THIS THAT DALE

DECIDED TO FAST AND PRAY.

IT WAS THERE GOD REVEALED A

SPECIFIC TRUTH TO HIM.

MY LIFE, FINANCIALLY, AND

IN MANY OTHER WAYS SEEMED TO

DRASTICALLY CHANGE FOR THE

NEGATIVE BECAUSE OF NOT

TITHING.

Reporter: SO DALE

IMMEDIATELY STARTED TITHING

AGAIN, EVEN THOUGH HE SAID

IT WAS VERY HARD.

THAT MONEY SHOULD HAVE

WENT TO THE DEBTS.

IT DIDN'T MAKE SENSE.

BUT IT MADE SENSE THAT I

KNEW GOD WAS THERE AND HE

WOULD HELP ME.

Reporter: DALE SAYS GOD

DID BEGIN TO HELP HIM.

EVERY MONTH THAT WENT BY

THAT I DIDN'T MISS ANY

PAYMENTS, IT JUST KEPT

BUILDING MY FAITH AND

HELPING ME TRUST GOD EACH

MONTH, EVEN MORE.

Reporter: ONE MONTH

DALE SAW THE BILLS COME DUE

AND NEEDED MORE THAN HE HAD

COMING IN IN COMMISSIONS.

THAT MONTH HE RECEIVED A

BONUS PAYMENT, A GIFT ABOVE

AND BEYOND THE COMMISSION HE

WAS DUE.

I GET THIS CHECK AT MY

OFFICE, IN THE MAIL, FROM A

DOCTOR AND HIS WIFE, FOR THE

EXACT AMOUNT OF THOSE

PAYMENTS, WHICH WAS $2,000.

Reporter: CONVINCED

THAT GOD WAS AT WORK IN HIS

FINANCES, DALE DECIDED TO

INCREASE HIS GIVING.

I FELT LIKE I NEEDED TO

GIVE EVEN MORE.

AND, AGAIN, THIS IS WHERE

THE TEACHING, YOU KNOW, ON

"THE 700 CLUB" AND CHRISTIAN

TELEVISION REALLY HELPED

ME.

OTHER PEOPLE'S TESTIMONIES

REALLY HELPED ME TO REALIZE

THAT I WANTED TO GIVE EVEN

MORE.

Reporter: DALE BECAME A

CBN PARTNER.

AS HE CONTINUED TO GIVE

TITHES AND OFFERINGS, HE

NOTICED EVEN MORE DRAMATIC

BUSINESS GROWTH IN A

SHRINKING ECONOMY.

I BEGAN TO SEE MY DEBTS

GET PAID OFF.

A LITTLE HERE, A LITTLE

THERE.

SOMETIMES A LOT.

I WASN'T WORKING ANY MORE

HOURS.

I WASN'T WORKING ANY

HARDER.

I WASN'T DOING ANYTHING

DIFFERENT.

AND YET IT WAS VERY CLEAR

THAT GOD WAS BRINGING ME

COSTUMERS.

Reporter: BY THE END OF

THE THIRD YEAR, DALE WAS

GIVING AWAY EVEN MORE.

THAT YEAR HE PAID OFF THE

LAST OF HIS $100,000 DEBT.

MY DEBT BEGAN BEING PAID

OFF IN LARGE LUMPS.

7,000, 10,000, $15,000, JUST

FROM SALES.

Reporter: DALE

EVENTUALLY REMARRIED AND HAS

TWO CHILDREN.

THE COUPLE CURRENTLY GIVE

AND RECENTLY DOUBLED THEIR

PLEDGE TO CBN BECAUSE THEY

KNOW THE PRINCIPLE OF GIVING

WORKS.

TO ANYONE SKEPTICAL ABOUT

GIVING OVER AND ABOVE THE

TITHE, AND GIVING TO AN

ORGANIZATION LIKE CBN, I

WOULD BEG THEM -- BEG THEM

TO TRY IT.

BEG THEM TO SEE WHAT GOD

WOULD DO FOR THEM.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE, FROM MATTHEW 25:

"TO THOSE WHO USE WELL WE

THEY ARE GIVEN, EVEN MORE

WILL BE GIVEN, AND THEY WILL

HAVE AN ABUNDANCE.

BUT FROM THOSE WHO DO

NOTHING, EVEN WHAT LITTLE

THEY HAVE WILL BE TAKEN

AWAY."

HERE IS DALE, HE IS GOING

THROUGH A DIVORCE, HE'S

LIVING IN A MOTEL, AND HE'S

GOING, HOW DID I GET HERE?

AND HE DOESN'T HAVE NEAR THE

INCOME HE NEEDS IN ORDER TO

PAY OFF HIS DEBTS.

BUT HE DECIDED TO USE WELL

WHAT HE DID HAVE, AND THAT

MADE THE DIFFERENCE FOR

HIM.

AND IT CAN MAKE THE

DIFFERENCE FOR YOU.

HE TURNED HIS LIFE AROUND

WITH GOD'S HELP.

HE STARTED PROSPERING

BECAUSE HE PUT TO USE WHAT

HE WAS GIVEN.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT, CALL

US, 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A PART OF EVERYTHING YOU'RE

DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF CBN

CENTS A DAY, AND YOU JOIN

LET'S GO OVER TO KRISTI AT

THE PHONES.

Kristi: THANK YOU,

GORDON.

IF YOU COULD GET A GLIMPSE

OF LIFE AFTER DEATH, HOW

WOULD THAT CHANGE THE WAY

YOU LIVE NOW?

WE TALKED TO A FEW PEOPLE

WHO FACED THAT VERY QUESTION

AFTER THEY DIED AND FOUND

THEMSELVES IN HELL, AND THEN

GOT A SECOND CHANCE TO

LIVE.

TAKE A LOOK.

WHAT IF YOU KNEW HELL IS

REAL BECAUSE YOU HAVE SEEN

IT?

THE STENCH OF HELL IS THE

MOST ROTTENOUS THING YOU CAN

EVER SMELL IN YOUR LIFE.

Reporter: BECAUSE

YOU'VE BEEN THERE.

I LOOKED UP, AND I SAW

DEATH AND HELL IN HIS EYES.

Reporter: HOW WOULD IT

CHANGE THE WAY YOU LIVE YOUR

LIFE?

I WOULD SAY I'M SORRY,

PLEASE FORGIVE ME.

THE REPENTANCE IS VERY

IMPORTANT.

Reporter: GET THE REAL

STORY FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE

EXPERIENCED LIFE BEYOND THE

GRAVE.

Kristi: MANY OF US

THINK ABOUT THE NOW.

WE INVEST IN NOW.

AND WHEN WE THINK ABOUT

INVESTING IN THE FUTURE, WE

THINK ABOUT OUR KID'S

COLLEGE.

BUT WHAT ABOUT INVESTING IN

ETERNITY.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

ARE YOU DOING THAT?

IF YOU'RE NOT, I WANT TO

ENCOURAGE YOU WITH STORIES,

STORIES THAT ARE IN THIS

D.V.D.

CALLED "LIFE BEYOND THE

GRAVE, PART TWO".

WE DID PART ONE A WHILE AGO,

AND PEOPLE WERE SO RIVETED

AND WANTED PART TWO.

AS A PERSON -- AS A WOMAN

WHO GOT SAVED WHEN I WAS

FIVE YEARS OLD, AND LIVED

FOR THE LORD FOR MANY YEARS

OF MY LIFE, I HAVE TO TELL

YOU HOW THIS D.V.D. CHANGED

MY LIFE.

I STARTED TO WATCH IT, AND

WITHIN A COUPLE OF STORIES,

I FELL ON MY KNEES AND I

SAID, LORD, I'VE GOT TO MAKE

SURE THAT MY LIFE IS RIGHT

BEFORE YOU.

I KNOW I WALK BY YOU AND I

MAY SAY THANK YOU, JESUS,

THANK YOU, JESUS, BUT I

INVEST SO MUCH TIME IN MAYBE

MY SON, MY KIDS, MY JOB, I

FORGOT ABOUT INVESTING IN

GOD.

DO YOU DO THE SAME THING?

IF YOU DO, LET'S INVEST IN

2013 AND DEVOTE OUR LIVES TO

JESUS CHRIST.

THAT IS THE MISSION OF CBN.

WE'VE BEEN HERE FOR 50

YEARS, AND WE WANT TO BE

HERE FOR 50 MORE YEARS TO

BRING MORE PEOPLE INTO THE

KINGDOM.

WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU.

WE ARE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

WITH US.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH

IS ALL IT COSTS.

WE TALKED ABOUT THIS D.V.D.

A LOT BECAUSE IT IS AN

IMPACTFUL D.V.D., BUT THIS

IS A GREAT WITNESSING TOOL.

SOMETHING YOU CAN GIVE TO

YOUR FAMILY, YOUR KIDS, THE

GRANDKIDS YOU'VE BEEN

PRAYING FOR.

THIS IS IT.

PUT IT IN THEIR HANDS.

I PROMISE YOU, THEIR LIVES

WILL CHANGE FOREVER.

WHEN YOU BECOME A "700 CLUB"

GOLD, WE'LL GIVE YOU THERE,

AND THAT'S $40 A MONTH.

WHEN YOU BECOME A THOUSAND

CLUB LEVEL, WE'LL GIVE YOU

FIVE.

THAT'S $84 A MONTH.

SO CALL RIGHT NOW.

DON'T FORGET, WE'RE IN THE

MIDDLE OF A CHALLENGE, AND

I'M GOING TO THROW TO

TERRY.

Terry: THANKS, KRISTI.

YOU KNOW, ALMOST THREE

MONTHS AFTER HURRICANE

SANDY, THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

IN NEW JERSEY ARE STILL

HOMELESS.

AND "OPERATION BLESSING"

TEAMS REMAIN THERE, HELPING

STORM SURVIVORS WHO HAVE

NOWHERE ELSE TO TURN.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: IN THE FIRST

FEW WEEKS FOLLOWING

HURRICANE SANDY, THE FOLKS

IN THE SMALL, COASTAL TOWN

OF LITTLE EGG HARBOR NEW

JERSEY BEGAN THE LONG

PROCESS OF PUTTING THEIR

LIVES TOGETHER.

FROM THE START, "OPERATION

BLESSING" WAS THERE.

AL CAPRIOTI, WHO LOST BOTH

LEGS DUE TO COMPLICATIONS

FROM DIABETES, HAD NOWHERE

TO TURN WHEN TREES CRASHED

DOWN ON HIS HOME.

INSURANCE CLAIMS WOULD TAKE

TIME, AND WITH WATER

DRIPPING INTO THIS HOUSE, HE

WAS OUT OF OPTIONS.

IT CAME THROUGH THE BACK

BEDROOM, AND IT BLEW MY

SKYLIGHT OUT.

AND IT CAUSED A LEAK IN THE

ROOF OVER HERE, JUST BELOW

MY BED.

AS I WAS SLEEPING, I STARTED

GETTING WET.

MY WIFE WAS UPSET.

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?

I AIN'T GOT THIS KIND OF

MONEY TO TAKE CARE OF THIS.

Reporter: A FRIEND TOLD

HIM THAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" WAS IN THE AREA,

HELPING PEOPLE RECOVER FROM

THE STORM.

WE GAVE THEM A CALL AND

THEY WERE HERE.

I SAID, WOW!

THEY SAID THEY CAN REMOVE

THESE TREES OFF THE ROOF.

I SAID, YOU SURE?

BECAUSE THERE IS ONE TREE --

IT'S AWFUL TREE.

HE GOES, WE'LL TAKE CARE OF

IT.

AND THEY CAME IN HERE WITH A

CREW, AND THEY KNOCKED THAT

TREE RIGHT OUT.

Reporter: WITHIN HOURS,

"OPERATION BLESSING"

VOLUNTEERS SHOWED UP AND

REMOVED THE TREES.

THEN THEY NAILED A TARP IN

PLACE TO KEEP THE RAIN AND

SNOW OUT UNTIL INSURANCE

COULD REPLACE THE ROOF.

I WAS OVERWHELMED.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.

THANK YOU IS NOT ENOUGH.

AND THEN THEY PRAYED WITH

US.

AND I KNEW RIGHT THERE AND

THEN THAT THAT WAS IT.

THAT WAS HIM.

HE WAS IN MY HOUSE.

MAKING SURE THAT EVERYBODY

WAS SAFE.

BECAUSE GOD DOES TAKE CARE

OF HIS OWN.

Reporter: THROUGH YOUR

DONATIONS, "OPERATION

BLESSING" WILL CONTINUE TO

WORK IN LITTLE EGG HARBOR

AND OTHER DEVASTATED

COMMUNITIES, HELPING

FAMILIES IN THEIR DESPERATE

TIME OF NEED.

THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU

DID.

IT WAS A BLESSING THAT YOU

WERE HERE.

I MEAN, REALLY.

I NEVER THOUGHT THIS WOULD

EVER HAPPEN TO ME.

I BELIEVE THAT WHEN YOU

CAN'T HANDLE IT NO MORE,

THERE IS ONLY ONE SET OF

FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND, AND

THAT'S THE LORD'S.

Terry: IT TAKES A LOT

OF TIME TO MOVE GOVERNMENT

AGENCIES, INSURANCE

COMPANIES.

BUT WHEN DISASTER STRIKES,

WE CAN BE THERE RIGHT AWAY.

HOW DOES THAT WORK?

IT HAPPENS BECAUSE PEOPLE

LIKE YOU CARE ENOUGH ABOUT

OTHER PEOPLE IN THEIR TIME

OF NEED TO SAY, WE WANT TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE ASKING YOU

TO DO TODAY.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB," MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

THAT'S WHAT WE ARE ALL

ABOUT.

WE'RE ABOUT TOUCHING PEOPLE

RIGHT AT THEIR POINT OF

NEED.

HELPING THEM IN CONCRETE

WAYS, AND LOVING THEM TO

WHOLENESS.

YOU CAN BE A PART OF THAT.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH,

NUMBER RIGHT NOW,

1-800-759-0700, YOU CAN JOIN

YOU CAN ALSO JOIN US BY

LOGGING ON TO CBN.COM.

Gordon: IN MOST

COMMUNITIES, THE BIRTH OF A

BABY IS A REASON TO

CELEBRATE.

BUT IN ONE GUATEMALA TOWN,

ONE BABY'S BIRTH SPREAD FEAR

AND PANIC AMONG THE

NEIGHBORS.

Reporter: WHEN LESLIE9p

WAS BORN IN HIS REMOTE

VILLAGE IN GUATEMALA, HER

PARENTS KNEW IMMEDIATELY HER

LIFE WAS IN DANGER.

MY OWN EXTENDED FAMILY

TOLD ME TO KILL MY

DAUGHTER.

WE THOUGHT SOMEONE MIGHT

BREAK INTO THE HOUSE AND

STEAL HER AND THEN KILL

HER.

Reporter: LESLIE WAS

BORN WITH A CLEFT PALLET.

IN SOME COMMUNITIES LIKE

THIS, LESLIE'S CONDITION WAS

THOUGHT TO BRING A CURSE IN

THE AREA.

IT HAS BEEN REPORTED THAT

FOUR BABIES WITH CLEFT

PALLETS HAVE ALREADY BEEN

KILLED HERE.

WE HID HER.

WE COVERED HER FACE WITH A

BLANKET WHEN WE WENT

OUTSIDE.

BUT AFTER A WHILE, WE

COULDN'T HIDE HER ANYMORE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

BABY LESLIE FACED OTHER

CHALLENGES, LIKE

MALNUTRITION.

WHEN MY WIFE FED HER, SHE

WOULD CHOKE, TRYING TO

SWALLOW THE MILK.

THE MILK JUST CAME OUT

HER NOSE.

I WONDERED IF SHE MIGHT DIE

IN SPITE OF OUR EFFORTS.

Reporter: WHEN AN

"OPERATION BLESSING" MEDICAL

TEAM CAME TO A NEARBY

VILLAGE, LESLIE'S PARENTS

TOOK HER TO SEE A DOCTOR.

WE QUICKLY SET UP A FREE

SURGERY FOR LESLIE AT A

HOSPITAL IN THE CITY.

IT HAS NOW BEEN A YEAR SINCE

THAT LIFE CHANGING SURGERY,

AND LESLIE IS DOING GREAT.

IN FACT, WHILE WE WERE

THERE, THE FAMILY HELD A

SPECIAL SERVICE OF

THANKSGIVING IN THE VILLAGE

CHURCH.

FROM MY DAUGHTER'S

SURGERY, YOU HAVE BROUGHT

HAPPINESS TO ME AND TO MY

HUSBAND.

THANK YOU WITH ALL MY HEART

FOR WHAT YOU'VE DONE FOR OUR

FAMILY.

Gordon: WHAT A

WONDERFUL THING, TO BE ABLE

TO GIVE THAT CHILD A HOPE

AND A FUTURE.

FOR US, IT'S SIMPLE, BUT FOR

THAT FAMILY, IT WAS

IMPOSSIBLE.

WHERE ARE THEY GOING TO FIND

THE MONEY TO TAKE CARE OF

THAT KIND OF A CELESTICA

PALATE CELESTICA PAL --

CLEFT PALLET, THAT KIND OF A

PROBLEM.

WHEN WE JOIN TOGETHER --

TOGETHER, IT MULTIPLIES THE

BLESSING.

AND WE'RE ABLE TO HAVE

"OPERATION BLESSING" TEAMS

ON THE GROUND, IN PLACES

LIKE GUATEMALA.

WE MAY NEVER GO THERE, WE

MAY NEVER VISIT, BUT WE CAN

GO IN YOUR NAME WHEN YOU

BECOME A MEMBER OF "THE 700

CLUB."

YOU'RE A PART OF THAT

BECAUSE A PORTION OF EVERY

GIFT GOES INTO THE WORK OF

"OPERATION BLESSING."

ANOTHER PORTION GOES INTO

THE WORK OF CBN

INTERNATIONAL, WHERE WE'RE

PREACHING THE GOSPEL AROUND

THE WORLD.

BUT WE ALSO WANT TO DO IT IN

VERY TANGIBLE WAYS, WHERE

WE'RE GIVING PEOPLE A HOPE

AND A FUTURE BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO.

NOW, WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF

A $100,000 CHALLENGE.

WHAT THAT MEANS IS EXISTING

CBN DONORS LOVE LIVING

GENEROUSLY AND CHALLENGING

OTHERS TO GIVE AS WELL.

SO THEY'LL MATCH YOUR GIFT,

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, UP TO

$100,000.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

WE'VE GOT GREAT NEWS BECAUSE

WE'RE MORE THAN DOUBLING

THAT CHALLENGE.

$100,000 IS NOT ENOUGH.

THEY WANT TO TAKE IT TO

$225,000.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING.

WE ASK FOR MULTIPLICATION.

WE ASK FOR ENABLEMENT TO

TAKE THE GOSPELAROUND THE

WORLD.

TO HELP PEOPLE IN NEED, TO

DO FOR OTHERS.

WE ASK FOR ENABLEMENT IN

THAT.

WE ASK FOR A BLESSING TO THE

PARTNERS THAT MAKE IT

POSSIBLE.

THAT YOU WOULD OPEN WINDOWS

IN HEAVEN AND POUR OUT

BLESSINGS UPON THEM THEY

CANNOT CONTAIN.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

ALL IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, $225,000 ON

THE CHALLENGE.

22 MINUTES TO GO.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO

CALL US NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

THE BIBLE TELLS US A LITTLE

BIT ABOUT HEAVEN, BUT HAVE

YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW

MORE.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

WHO WILL YOU SEE THERE?

AND WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU

GET THERE?

IN "LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE,

PART TWO", YOU'LL MEET

PEOPLE WHO HAVE ANSWER ALL

OF THOSE QUESTIONS AND MORE

BECAUSE THEY'VE BEEN THERE.

Announcer: WHAT IF YOU

KNEW HEAVEN IS REAL BECAUSE

YOU'VE SEEN IT?

EVERYBODY IS ALIVE.

NOTHING IS DEAD.

BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN

THERE.

THERE IS MORE LOVE THAN

YOU CAN IMAGINE.

HOW WOULD IT CHANGE THE

WAY YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE?

HE WAS SO EAGER, WE'VE

GOT TO GET PEOPLE SAVED.

WE'VE GOT TO LET PEOPLE KNOW

ABOUT JESUS.

GET THE REAL STORY FROM

PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED

"LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO".

NO EYE HAS SEEN, NO EAR

HAS HEARD, NO MIND HAS

CONCEIVED WHAT GOD HAS

PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE

HIM.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT,

AND YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS

"LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO".

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

$20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY.

YOU'LL MEET PEOPLE WHO HAVE

DIED, AND STEPPED INTO

ETERNITY, AND THEY'VE COME

BACK TO TELL THEIR AMAZING

STORIES OF HEAVEN, AND THEIR

WARNINGS ABOUT HELL.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

IT IS BACK BY POPULAR

DEMAND.

AGAIN, JUST 65 CENTS A DAY,

MAKES YOU A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER.

MAYBE YOU'RE ALREADY A

PARTNER AND WE WANT TO SAY

THEC.

THANK YOU.

LET'S GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL,

OUR GOLD LEVEL, $40.

YOU CAN BARELY GO TO THE

MOVIES ON A SATURDAY NIGHT

AND GET THE POPCORN, THE

COKE, AND THE CANDY FOR

$40.

YOU CAN CERTAINLY PUT THAT

ASIDE FOR SOMETHING AS

INCREDIBLE AS HELPING GOD TO

SPREAD THE GOSPEL OF JESUS

CHRIST AROUND THE WORLD.

WHEN YOU DO, WE WILL GIVE

YOU THREE "LIFE BEYOND THE

GRAVE, PART TWO"s.

WHEN YOU JOINED AT THE

THOUSAND LEVEL JUST $84 A

MONTH, WE'LL GIVE YOU FIVE

"LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO"s.

SO RIGHT NOW, WE'RE IN THE

MIDDLE OF A $225,000

CHALLENGE.

THAT MEANS IF YOU GO TO YOUR

PHONES OR YOUR COMPUTER

RIGHT NOW, cbn.com, EVERY

DOLLAR THAT YOU PLEDGE WILL

BE MATCHED DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR.

IN THIS ECONOMY, THAT IS A

GREAT DEAL.

GORDON?

Gordon: WHEN CHAD BUSHY

HAD OPEN-HEART SURGERY, HE

WAS OUT OF WORK FOR FOUR

MONTHS.

BUT EVEN WITHOUT CHAD'S

INCOME, HIS FAMILY PAID ALL

THEIR BILLS ON TIME AND THEY

NEVER RAN OUT OF MONEY.

HERE IS HOW THEY DID IT.

Reporter: CHAD AND KIM

BUSHY ARE A HARD-WORKING

COUPLE, WHO LIVE OFF THEIR

FARM, ALONG WITH THEIR

CHICKENS, LLAMAS, AND

GOATS.

I BEGGED MY HUSBAND FOR A

GOAT.

HE SAID YOU CAN HAVE A GOAT

IF YOU DO SOMETHING WITH

IT.

SO WE ACTUALLY MADE LOTS

OF THINGS, CHEESE AND ICE

CREAM.

I LOVE THE OUTDOORS, SO I

THANK GOD FOR GIVING ME HIS

NATURE TO WORK WITH.

Reporter: A FEW YEARS

EARLIER, CHAD DEVELOPED

HEART DISEASE AND HAD TO

HAVE OPEN-HEART SURGERY.

HE WAS UNABLE TO WORK FOR

FOUR MONTHS.

IN SPITE OF THE FINANCIAL

CHALLENGES, CHAD AND KIM

CONTINUED TO TITHE AND GIVE

TO CBN FROM THE MONEY THEY

MADE SELLING SOAP MADE FROM

GOAT MILK.

AND AS THEY GAVE, GOD

PROVIDED.

IT WOULD ALWAYS SEEM LIKE

ANY TIME WE WERE IN REAL

NEED, SOMEONE WOULD CALL AND

SAY, HEY, I NEED 10 BARS OF

SOAP AND WE WOULD HAVE WHAT

WE NEEDED.

Reporter: AND WHILE

CHAD WAS LAID UP AFTER

SURGERY, FRIENDS FROM CHURCH

PUT THEIR MONEY TOGETHER AND

TOOK CARE OF THEIR BILLS AND

BOUGHT THE FAMILY

GROCERIES.

THEY HAD, LIKE, A

THOUSAND DOLLARS IN VISA

GIFT CARDS.

AND THEY GAVE US ANOTHER

$500 IN FOOD CARDS TO THE

LOCAL GROCERY STORE.

THAT COVERED MOST OF OUR

EXPENSES RIGHT THERE.

Reporter: WHEN THEY RAN

OUT OF HAY TO FEED LIAR

THERE ANIMALS, AND A

NEIGHBOR CALLED AND ASKED

THEM IF THEY NEEDED HAY.

AND I SAID, I CAN'T PAY

YOU FOR IT.

AND HE SAID, PAY ME WHEN THE

GET THE MONEY.

I HAD SO MUCH HAY, MY ENTIRE

LOFT WAS FULL.

Reporter: THE BUSHYS

HAD ADOPTED THREE CHILDREN,

AND THE OLDEST ONE IS IN

COLLEGE NOW.

I LOVE HOW THEY SUPPORT

THE ORPHANS, HOW THEY CARE

FOR THE ORPHANS, AND FEED

THEM AND CLOTHE THEM.

Reporter: AND THEIR

9-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER,

ELIZABETH, IS LEARNING TO

GIVE, TOO.

IN FACT, SHE LOVES CBN SO

MUCH, INSTEAD OF SAVING HER

MONEY FOR A PONY, SHE GAVE

HER $20 TO CBN.

I KEPT ON WATCHING CBN,

AND I FELT LIKE A BIG PAIN

IN MY HEART, THAT YOU NEED

TO GIVE.

I TALKED TO MY MOM AND DAD

ABOUT IT, AND THEY SAID YOU

CAN GIVE.

SHE WROTE DOWN THE CHECK,

AND I SENT IT IN THE MAIL.

I ACTUALLY STARTED A GIVING

JAR FOR CBN.

IT BLESSES ME VERY MUCH

TO SEE OUR DAUGHTER GIVING

AND UNDERSTAND THAT IT'S

IMPORTANT, TO UNDERSTAND THE

PRINCIPLES OF OBEYING GOD'S

WORD.

Reporter: THE BUSHYS

BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN'T

OUTGIVE GOD.

THAT'S WHY THEY RECENTLY

INCREASED THEIR GIVING TO

CBN.

ONLY GOD KNOWS HOW MANY

APPLES YOU CAN GET OUT OF

ONE SEED.

BUT IF YOU GIVE TO GOD, SOW

INTO CBN, YOU'LL NEVER SEE

AN END TO THE BLESSING.

I WANT TO TELL OTHER KIDS

YOU SHOULD GIVE.

BECAUSE IF YOU GIVE, IT WILL

BLESS GOD.

Gordon: BLESS GOD.

I LOVE THAT STORY.

I LOVE THAT FAMILY.

I LOVE HOW GOD PROVIDED FOR

THEM AND PROVIDED IN VERY

UNUSUAL WAYS.

HE LOVES TO HELP HIS

CHILDREN.

HE WANTS TO BLESS US.

WE DON'T HAVE TO TALK HIM

INTO US.

"FOR GOD SO LOVED THE

WORLD --" THAT MEANS YOU --

"THAT HE GAVE" -- HE WANTS

TO GIVE.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

YOU'RE PART OF ALL OF IT

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

SO CALL US, 1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: I LOVE ELIZABETH

BUSHY.

HERE IS THIS LITTLE GIRL.

THERE IS SO MUCH WE COULD

LEARN FROM HER.

SHE IS NOT ASKING GOD FOR

ANYTHING.

SHE IS WANTING TO BLESS

HIM.

ELIZABETH, YOU'RE AMAZING.

WHEN YOU BECOME A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, YOU'RE HELPING

PEOPLE LITERALLY ALL OVER

THE WORLD.

LIKE THIS WIDOW AND HER

FAMILY IN CHINA.

WHEN WE MET THEM, THEY WERE

LIVING IN A SHACK THAT WERE

SO RUN DOWN, SHE AND HER

CHILDREN GOT FROSTBITE

INSIDE THEIR HOME.

Reporter: YIN AND YU

ALWAYS DREADED THEIR WALK

HOME FROM SCHOOL WITH THEIR

FRIENDS.

THEY DIDN'T WANT THEIR

CLASSMATES TO SEE WHERE THEY

LIVED, IN AN OLD, RUNDOWN

SHACK.

THEY HAD A BIGGER HOME AT

ONE POINT, BUT IT WAS

DESTROYED BY A HEAVY

RAINSTORM.

MR. AND MRS. TAO WORKED VERY

HARD, BUT WHEN MR. TAO DIED,

EVERYTHING CHANGED.

I PLANTED CORN, AND ONLY

MAKE $150 A YEAR.

IT WAS AWFUL.

MY MOM WORKED SO HARD THAT

HER HAIR TURNED GREY.

SO EVEN THOUGH WE ARE SMALL,

MY SISTER AND I PITCHED IN

TO HELP.

EN THE SUMMER, OUR ROOF

LEAKED BADLY, SO OUR SHEETS

AND PAJAMAS WERE ALWAYS

WET.

AND IN THE WINTER, OUR ROOM

FROZE INSIDE.

IT WAS SO COLD THAT WE

GOT FROSTBITE ON OUR HANDS

AND FEET.

THERE ISN'T EVEN ROOM TO

COOK.

I HAVE TO PREPARE MEALS

OUTSIDE.

AND IF WE DON'T HAVE POWER,

THE CHILDREN HAVE TO DO

THEIR HOMEWORK BY CANDLE

LIGHT.

Terry: AFTER THREE

YEARS OF THIS, THE FAMILY

STILL ONLY HAD ONE-THIRD OF

WHAT THEY NEEDED TO BUILD A

NEW HOME.

SO MRS. TAO TURNED TO GOD.

I SAID, LORD, I BELIEVE

IN YOU.

THAT YOU CAN MAKE A WAY FOR

ME.

Terry: SHORTLY AFTER

MRS. TAO PRAYED, CBN CAME TO

THEIR VILLAGE AND HELPED

BUILD THE TAOS A NEW HOME,

WHICH WAS MUCH LARGER THAN

THEIR OLD ONE.

I CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE MY

CLASSMATES OVER.

Terry: THERE ARE NO

LEAKS IN THEIR ROOF, AND

THIS WINTER THEY WON'T HAVE

TO WORRY ABOUT FROSTBITE

BECAUSE CBN GAVE THE TAOS A

BRAND NEW HEATER.

I THANK THE LORD, FOR HE

HAS SHOWN HIS GRACE TO ME.

AND I THANK CBN, FOR YOU

HAVE GIVEN ME AND MY

CHILDREN A REAL HOME.

YOU ARE ANGELS SENT FROM

GOD.

Terry: WHAT AN AMAZING

STORY.

THIS WOMAN IN SUCH A POINT

OF NEED, AND RIGHT INTO ALL

OF THAT YOU COME.

YOU SO, THAT'S HOW THESE

THINGS HAPPEN.

IT HAPPENS BECAUSE PEOPLE

LIKE YOU SEE THE STORIES

WE'RE SHARING WITH YOU, AND

THEY SAY I WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

AND THEN YOU ALLOW US TO

EXPAND, TO REACH EVEN MORE

FAMILIES, TO BE THERE, TO

HELP, TO OFFER WHAT THEY

NEED TO TEACH, TO CHANGE

THEIR LIVES.

TO GIVE THEM HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

THAT'S WHAT "700 CLUB"

MEMBERS DO.

THEY DO IT ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

THEY EVEN DO IT RIGHT HERE

AT HOME IN THE UNITED STATES

OF AMERICA.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS OUT

ON THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE A

PART OF THAT.

WILL YOU CALL US RIGHT NOW.

SAY, I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A "700

CLUB" MEMBER, GO UP TO THE

NEXT CLUB LEVEL.

WHEN YOU CALL AND JOIN,

WOULD YOU ALSO SAY I WOULD

LIKE TO JOIN USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES ALL

OF THE WORK.

IT SAVES YOU A LOT OF

HASSLE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT ENVELOPES AND STAMPS

BEING AVAILABLE.

THE BANK DOES IT FOR YOU.

YOU CAN STOP IT WHENEVER YOU

WANT.

BUT IT DOES SAVE US SOME

PROCESSING COSTS SO WE CAN

PUT EVEN MORE OF YOUR GIFT

INTO THE LIVES OF PEOPLE

LIKE THIS LITTLE FAMILY IN

CHINA, SO DESPERATE.

WE WANT YOU TO CALL NOW, AND

SAY, I WANT TO GIVE THROUGH

PLEDGE EXPRESS, AND WE'LL

SEND YOU "POWER FOR LIFE"

TEACHINGS.

WE RECEIVE THEM HERE AT CBN,

AND WE WANT TO SHARE THEM

WITH YOU.

WHEN YOU LOG IN ONLINE AND

GIVE, YOU'RE AUTOMATICALLY

GIVING THROUGH PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

AND WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

FOR YOUR GENS ROS

GENEROSITY.

Gordon: TODAY OLIVIA

SPENDS HER DAYS IN IS FOOD

DISTRIBUTION FOOD.

AND SHE LOVES GIVING BACK TO

PEOPLE BECAUSE NOT LONG AGO

SHE WAS THE ONE WHO NEEDED

HELP.

Reporter: SHE ENJOYED

THE FAMILY ATMOSPHERE AND

THE OPPORTUNITY TO HELP

OTHERS IN NEED.

WITH A GOOD JOB AS A BANK

SUPERVISOR, THE SINGLE

MOTHER OF THREE NEVER

THOUGHT ONE DAY SHE WOULD BE

ON THE RECEIVING END.

BUT AT THE EARLY AGE OF 25,

HER HEALTH BEGAN TO FAIL.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY I

WAS SICK.

I MEAN, THERE WERE DAYS WHEN

I WENT TO STEP OUT OF BED, I

WOULD COLLAPSED TO THE

FLOOR.

Reporter: DOCTORS

COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS

WRONG WITH OLIVIA.

AND HER CONDITIONED

WORSENED, TO THE POINT SHE

WAS TOO WEAK TO WORK.

WITHOUT AN INCOME, SHE

DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO PROVIDE

FOR HER CHILDREN.

BECAUSE I COULDN'T WALK,

I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR A

MONTH OR TWO MONTHS AT A

TIME, BUT THE BILLS DIDN'T

STOP.

THE MORTGAGE DIDN'T STOP.

Reporter: BUT

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PARTNER, "BREAD OF LIFE" WAS

THERE TO HELP.

EVERY MONTH THE MINISTRY

DISTRIBUTES FOOD AND OTHER

SUPPLIES TO MORE THAN 1500

FAMILIES IN PERRY,

PENNSYLVANIA.

THE PASTOR SAYS THE FOOD

FROM "OPERATION BLESSING"

MEETS A CRITICAL NEED.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE

WHO DO NOT HAVE WORK OR

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE ON

FIXED INCOMES THAT JUST

CAN'T MAKE ENDS MEET TODAY.

Reporter: THE FOOD AND

SUPPLIES OLIVIA GOT HELPED

HER FAMILY MAKE IT THROUGH

ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT

TIMES IN THEIR LIVES.

THE DOCTORS EVENTUALLY

DIAGNOSED HER WITH A WEAK

ADRENAL CONDITION.

THEY GOT HER CONDITION UNDER

CONTROLLED.

WITH HER HEALTH STEADILY

IMPROVING, OLIVIA GOT A JOB

AT A BANK IS A BACK ON HER

FEET.

SHE SAYS SHE'LL NEVER FORGET

THE KINDNESS HER FAMILY WAS

SHOWN.

I TRULY BELIEVE IT WAS

GOD'S WAY OF SHARING, TO

LEAN ON HIM.

IF IT WEREN'T FOR "OPERATION

BLESSING," WE WOULDN'T HAVE

HAD ANYTHING.

AND I MIGHT HAVE LOST MY

HOME AND I MIGHT HAVE LOST

MY CHILDREN BECAUSE I

COULDN'T HAVE FED THEM.

AS FAR AS A GIFT, IT IS THE

BIGGEST GIFT I COULD HAVE

EVER RECEIVED.

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN A HINDU

FARMER NEEDED CLEAN WATER,

HE DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING

RADICAL.

HE PRAYED TO THE CHRISTIAN

GOD FOR HELP.

HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT,

AND HOW HIS PRAYER CHAIMPLED

CHANGED AN ENTIRE VILLAGE.

Reporter: RAISING

LIVESTOCK IN THE HILLS OF

NORTHWEST INDIA CAN BE A

VERY DIFFICULT JOB,

ESPECIALLY IF YOU DON'T HAVE

A CLOSE WATER SOURCE.

SOHAN HAD TO WALK TWO MILES

TO GET WATER FOR HIS FAMILY,

WATER, AND GOATS.

HE BEGGED HIS HINDU GODS FOR

HELP, BUT NOTHING CHANGED.

THEN A LOCAL PASTOR

ENCOURAGED HIM TO PRAY TO

JESUS.

IN MY HEART, I WOULD PRAY

TO JESUS EVERY MORNING,

NOONTIME, AND EVENING, FOR

WATER CLOSE TO MY HOME.

Reporter: IT WASN'T

LONG BEFORE SOHAN SAW HIS

PRAYERS ANSWERED.

CBN'S LIVING WATERS TEAM

CAME TO HIS VILLAGE AND

DRILLED A WELL.

THIS WELL IS A BIG

BLESSING TO MY FAMILY AND

VILLAGE.

IT IS ALSO A BLESSING FOR MY

CATTLE AND GOATS.

NOW I

CAN BATHE

THEM AND

GIVE THEM PLENTY OF WATER TO

DRINK.

I AM SO

HAPPY.

Reporter: SOHAN

AND HIS

FAMILY GAVE THEIR LIVES TO

CHRIST.

AND THEY WEREN'T THE ONLY

ONES.

168 OTHER VILLAGERS WERE

BAPTIZED BECAUSE THEY SAW

THE WELL AS A TANGIBLE SIGN

THAT GOD IS REAL AND HE

LOVES THEM.

I BELIEVE JESUS CHRIST IS

THE ONE

TRUE GOD.

BECAUSE HE GAVE ME WATER

AFTER I PRAYED FOR A WELL.

MY FAMILY DRINKS WATER FROM

IT.

AND THEY ARE HAPPY AND AT

PEACE.

WHEN I

DIE, I KNOW I WILL BE

IN HEAVEN WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

Terry: THAT'S AN

AMAZING STORY, ISN'T IT?

NOT JUST THIS MAN HAVING

LIFE CHANGING, LIFE-SAVING

WATER NEAR HIS HOME, BUT

WATER FOR HIS SOUL.

BUT NOT JUST FOR HIM, HIS

FAMILY, AND NOT JUST THIS

FAMILY, HIS VILLAGE.

THAT ALL STARTED WHEN YOU

CARED ENOUGH TO SAY, LET US

COME IN AND MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

LET US LOVE THESE PEOPLE.

PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN ANOTHER

PART OF THE WORLD.

YOU'LL NEVER SEE THEM;

YOU'LL NEVER MEET THEM, BUT

THEIR LIVES ARE FOREVER

CHANGED BECAUSE YOU CARED.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO HELP US

MAKE THAT KIND OF A

DIFFERENCE IN EVEN MORE

LIVES.

GORDON?

Gordon: I LOVE THAT

I SPEND A LOT OF TIME IN

IF YOU WANTED HOT WATER,

THAT MEANT YOUR BUCKET HAD

TO STAND IN THE SUN.

JUST TO SEE THE VILLAGE

GATHER AROUND THE LOCAL

WELL, AND JUST THE AMOUNT OF

TIME IT TOOK FOR THEM TO GET

FRESH WATER.

AND FOR VILLAGES THAT DIDN'T

HAVE THAT, THE KIND OF WATER

THAT THEY WERE DRINKING, YOU

WOULDN'T WANT TO FEED TO

ANIMALS, BUT HERE HUMANS

WERE DRINKING THIS WATER,

AND IT WAS LEADING TO

DISEASE.

THE CHILDREN WERE DYING

BECAUSE OF DI DYSENTERY.

LET'S RESOLVE THAT.

HOW CAN WE DO SOMETHING

WHEN VILLAGERS REALIZED SHE

HAD BEEN ABANDONED, A WOMAN

FROM "HOPE IN CHRIST"

MINISTRIES IMMEDIATELY

PICKED HER UP.

THIS NEW DORM BUILT BY CBN'S

DOZENS OF OTHER CHILDREN.

THEY GIVE US FOOD AND I EAT

I AM BACK UP TO 21 HOURS

REPORTER: HE WAS READY FOR

A NEW CAR.

I WANTED A FORD RANGER THAT

THEY WERE 8,000, 7,000 DOLLARS

REPORTER: CORY ENLISTED HIS

UNCLE TO HELP HIM.

HE SAID HE TALKED THEM DOWN.

TITHING YOU GET REWARDS AND

BLESSINGS.

IT IS NOT JUST STRAIGHT CASH.

HE DOES IT IN OTHER WAYS.

I THINK I GOT THAT VEHICLE

BECAUSE I STARTED TITHING, TOOK

THAT RISK.

CORY SAYS HE ESPECIALLY LOVES

GIVING TO CBN.

IF YOU WANT YOUR MONEY TO GO

SOME WHERE, GIVE IT TO CBN.

THEY HAVE ORPHAN'S PROMISE, THEY

GO INTO ANY COUNTRY THAT NEEDS

HELP.

THEY ROLL THE TRUCKS IN, THEY

HELP PEOPLE.

REPORTER: CORY STILL TITHES

FAITHFULLY.

HE IS CONFIDENT GOD WILL

CONTINUE TO PROVIDE.

WHEN I TALK TO PEOPLE, I TELL

THEM IT IS GOING TO BE GIVEN

BACK TO YOU.

YOU SHOULDN'T TITHE JUST TO GET

STUFF BACK, JOYFULLY GIVE.

YOU WILL BE BLESSED FOR IT.

HE KEEPS IT PROMISES.

HE HAS DONE IT FOR ME.

HE CAN DO IT FOR ANYBODY.

GORDAN: HE IS LOOKING FOR

THOSE THAT GIVE CHEERFULLY.

GOD LOVED THE WORLD SO MUCH THAT

HE GAVE AND HE GAVE SOMETHING

VERY PRECIOUS, HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN

SON.

THAT IS HOW GENEROUS GOD IS.

HE IS LOOKING FOR US TO SAY,

OKAY, WILL YOU OBEY ME?

HERE IS THE PROMISE PROVERBS 19,

IF, CONDITIONAL, IF YOU HELP THE

POOR, YOU ARE LENDING TO THE

LORD.

HE WILL REPAY YOU.

CORY FOUND GOD REPAYS IN

WONDERFUL WAYS, UNUSUAL WAYS.

HE WANTS TO GIVE US OUR HEART'S

DESIRE.

WE DON'T HAVE TO TALK HIM INTO

IT.

HE LOVES US.

WHEN WE START DOING THINGS HIS

WAY, THAT IS WHEN THE BLESSINGS

COME.

WHEN CYNTHIA LOST HER JOB, SHE

WAS OUT OF WORK SEVEN MONTHS,

SHE NEVER MISSED A CAR OR

MORTGAGE PAYMENT.

HERE IS HOW SHE DID IT.

MY MONEY WAS IN CONTROL OF

ME.

I WORKED HARD FOR IT.

THOSE VOICES TELL YOU YOU

DESERVE IT.

REPORTER: THAT IS THE MINDSET

CYNTHIA HORTON ADOPTED AS A

CAREER WOMAN.

I HAD NEW CARS EVERY TWO

YEARS.

HER MONEY WENT TO BILLS AND

CREDITORS.

IF ANYTHING CAME IN $2 OVER I

WAS GOING TO BE IN A BIND.

REPORTER: SHE STARTED

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I HEARD THESE PRINCES VERY

FOREIGN TO ME.

GIVE AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO

YOU. CYNTHIA BECAME A CBN

PARTNER.

IT WAS A HUGE STEP FOR ME.

REPORTER: CYNTHIA DIDN'T HAVE

A HANDLE ON SPENDING AND HER

DEBT CREW TO $30,000.

AS LONG AS YOU CAN PAY THE

MONTHLY PAYMENT LIFE WAS GOOD.

IT WASN'T GOOD.

REPORTER: THEN SHE LOST HER

JOB.

SHE HAD TO DEPEND SOLELY ON GOD

WHICH WASN'T EASY.

IT WAS VERY STRESSFUL.

I REMEMBER PACING BACK AND

FORTH.

I SAID GOD, I NEED YOUR HELP, MY

MORTGAGE PAYMENT WAS DRAFTING

THE NEXT DAY, I HAD $1.87 IN THE

BANK.

SHE APPROVED AN OFFER FOR

$6,000 AT A WHOPPING 27%

INTEREST.

SHE WAS TEMPED.

NEW GOD SAID IT IS NOT YOUR

ANSWER.

A PERMANENT MARKER I WROTE VOID

ON THAT CHECK.

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW THAT

MORTGAGE PAYMENT DRAFTED.

SHE BELIEVED GOD TOLD HER TO

KEEP GIVEN.

HIS SPECIFIC INSTRUCTION WAS

TO CONTINUE GIVING THE SAME

AMOUNT.

DURING SEVEN MONTHS OF

UNEMPLOYMENT, NEVER MISED A

HOUSE OR CAR PAYMENT.

GOD WAS FAITHFUL

REPORTER: CYNTHIA LANDED A

JOB.

GOD STARTED SHOWING WAYS TO PAY

OFF HER DEBT.

ONE WAS TO GIVE MORE.

HE ASKED ME TO DOUBLE MY

GIFT.

DOUBLE MY GIFT?

$20 WAS A STRETCH, NOW $40?

REPORTER: CYNTHIA PAID OFF

ALL OF HER DEBT AND DEBT FREE.

SHE IS A MEMBER OF CBN'S

CHAIRMAN CIRCLE.

SHE HAS AN UNDERSTANDING OF

GIVING AND FAITH SHE NEVER HAD

BEFORE.

GOD GETS 10%, 90% IS MINE.

MY PHILOSOPHY IS IT IS ALL HIS.

HE GAVE IT TO ME ANY WAY.

THAT IS ONE OF THE PRINCIPLES I

LEARNED.

WHEN I GIVE IT TO GOD, HE IS

GOING TO DO SO MUCH MORE THAN I

COULD EVER IMAGINE.

HE BLESSES ME BACK ALONG THE

WAY.

GORDAN: I LOVE CYNTHIA'S

STORY.

IN CHALLENGING TIMES SHE

CONTINUED TO GIVE.

THIS ISN'T A GET RICH SCHEME.

EVEN IN THE TOUGH TIMES,

CONTINUE TO GIVE.

THAT IS THE WAY OUT OF THE

DIFFICULTY.

HE CHALLENGED CYNTHIA, GIVE

MORE.

IN THAT SHE PUT INTO PRACTICE,

SOMETHING WE CALL LAW OF

RECIPROCITY.

IT IS THE SECRETS OF THE KINGDOM

OF GOD, LUKE CHAPTER 6, THESE

ARE THE WORDS

IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU.

SO OFTEN THE WORLD SAYS WAIT

UNTIL YOU ARE WEALTHY.

IF YOU WANT TO PUT THESE

PRINCIPLES INTO ACTION, YOU HAVE

TO START WITH A GIFT.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO

YOU.

GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN,

SHAKEN AND RUNNING OVER WILL BE

POURED INTO YOUR LAP.

IT WILL BE MEASURED BACK TO YOU.

THESE ARE THE WORDS OF JESUS.

YOU CAN TRUST THEM.

WHEN GOD CHALLENGED CYNTHIA,

GIVE MORE, SHE WAS PUTTING INTO

PRACTICE THE LAW OF RECIPROCITY.

SHE WAS ABLE TO GET OUT OF DEBT,

GET A NEW JOB, ABLE TO HAVE HOPE

AND A FUTURE BECAUSE THAT IS

WHAT GOD WANTS FOR HIS CHILDREN.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM.

YOU HAVE TO PUT THE PRINCIPLE

INTO PRACTICE AND START GIVING.

IF I CAN HAVE A DRUM ROLL,

EXISTING CBN PARTNERS JUST LIKE

CYNTHIA SAY WE LOVE LIVING A

GENEROUS LIFE.

WE WANT TO BE KNOWN FOR OUR

GENEROSITY.

GIVE.
