[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE HUNT FOR THE BLACK WIDOW

IS ON.

RUSSIAN SECURITY FORCES ARE

SEARCHING FOR A SUSPECTED

FEMALE SUICIDE BOMBER WHO

MAY BE HIDING OUT IN SOCHI,

AS PART OF A PLANNED

TERRORIST STRIKE AT THE

WINTER OLYMPICS.

Terry: I ISLAMIC

MILITANTS ALREADY RELEASED A

VIDEO WHICH PROMISE TO

TARGET THE GAMES WHICH START

IN LESS THAN THREE WEEKS.

Reporter: TODAY

AUTHORITIES ARE SEARCHING

FOR A SO-CALLED BLACK

WIDOW.

THAT'S THE TERM GIVEN TO THE

WIFE OF A DEAD TERRORIST,

WHO VOWED TO CARRY OUT AN

ATTACK TO AVENGE HER

HUSBAND'S DEATH.

THIS POSTER SHOWS THE WOMAN

THE POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR.

SHE IS FROM THE NORTH

CAUCUSES REGION, KNOWN TO BE

A HOTBED FOR TERROR.

THE BOSTON BOMBERS CAME

OUT OF THIS DAGESTAN CHECHEN

AREA.

Reporter: ERICK

STAKELBECK SAYS THE

MILITANTS HAVE LINKED TO

QUITE al-QAEDA, AND THEY

POSE A THREAT NOT ONLY IN

RUSSIA BUT AROUND THE

GLOBE.

RUSSIA HAS FOUGHT TWO

WARS IN CHECHNYA TO KEEP

THEM INTO THE FOLD.

THESE GUYS ARE

BLOOD-THIRSTY, AND THEY'RE

VICIOUS.

Reporter: CHECHEN

REBELS ARE WELL-KNOWN FOR

RECRUITING WOMEN TO BE

SUICIDE BOMBERS, AND THOSE

BLACK WIDOWS HAVE STRUCK

BEFORE.

IN 2010, TWO FEMALE SUICIDE

BOMBERS KILLED ABOUT 40

PEOPLE IN THE ATTACKS ON THE

MOSCOW TRAIN STATION.

CBN NEWS HAS REPORTED FROM

THAT DANGEROUS NORTHERN

CAUCUS REGION BEFORE.

BUT SOME BELIEVERS WORKING

IN THE SHADOWS CLAIM IT IS A

RISK WORTH TAKING, TO MAKE

THE NAME OF CHRIST KNOWN.

ONLY JESUS CAN CHANGE

LIVES AND BRING THE HOPE

PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR.

Reporter: ISLAMIC

MILITANTS IN THE REGION HAVE

ALREADY CARRIED OUT TWO

RECENT ATTACKS, AND THEY'RE

WARNING OF MORE TO COME,

INCLUDING WHAT THEY'RE

CALLING A SURPRISE PACKAGE

FOR VISITORS TO THE

OLYMPICS.

IF THE GAMES AREN'T

ATTACKED, THERE WILL BE

ATTEMPTS TO ATTACK, EITHER

THE TRANSIT ROUTES INTO THE

GAMES, OR PARTICULAR VENUES

ON THE OUTLYING AREAS.

Reporter: MEANWHILE

PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN

SAYS HE WILL USE WHATEVER

MEASURES ARE NECESSARY TO

ENSURE THAT THE OLYMPICS ARE

SAFE.

ALREADY MORE THAN 80,000

RUSSIAN TROOPS ARE DEPLOYED

ON THE GROUND.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: IN OTHER NEWS,

AMERICA'S EAST COAST IS

GEARING UP FOR YET ANOTHER

WINTER STORM.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

JOHN?

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

GORDON.

THE WINTER STORM IS

HAMMERING THE EASTERN PART

OF THE COUNTRY TODAY.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

WARNS IT COULD BRING UP TO

10 INCHES OF SNOW TO NEW

YORK AND PHILADELPHIA, AND A

POLAR FREEZE WILL SEND

TEMPERATURES PLUMMETTING TO

SUB ZERO FROM THE MIDWEST TO

THE NORTHEAST.

CHICAGO IS EXPECTING AS MUCH

AS TWO INCHES OF SNOW AN

HOUR IN CONDITIONS THAT FEEL

LIKE 22° BELOW 0, AND CREWS

IN VIRGINIA WORK AROUND THE

CHOCLOCK PREPARING ROADS.

SOME SPOTS WILL GET AS MUCH

AS SIX TO 12 INCHES, THAT

INCLUDES LONG ISLAND, BACK

TOWARDS D.C.

THE ARCTIC FRONT IS EXPECTED

TO LAST UNTIL THE WEEKEND.

> AN ICONIC CROSS HAS

SURVIVED A WARE NEAR

LOS ANGELES.

THE BLAZE SHOULD BE

CONTAINED BY WEDNESDAY.

AND ALTHOUGH AT LEAST SIX

HOMES AND 1700 ACRES WERE

DESTROYED, THE CROSS IS

STILL STANDING TALL.

IT SITS ON TOP OF A PEAK IN

THE AZUZA MILES, AND EVEN

THOUGH MUCH AROUND IT HAS

BEEN BURNED, THE CROSS

ITSELF SEEMS TO BE

UNSCATHED.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

THE HISTORY OF THE CROSS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

> STAYING OPTMISTIC AND

KEEPING A POSITIVEOUT

POSITIVE OUTLOOK ON LIFE

COULD KEEP YOU HEALTHIER AS

YOU GET OLDER.

THE RESEARCHERS FOUND PEOPLE

WHO ENJOY LIFE HAVE FEWER

PHYSICAL PROBLEMS AS THEY

AGE, SO THEY CAN WALK

FASTER, AND THEY'RE LESS

LIKELY TO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH

THEIR DAILY LIVES, LIKE

GETTING DRESSED OR GETTING

OUT OF BED.

ALL OF THE MORE REASON TO

STAY POSITIVE.

Gordon: THAT'S RIGHT.

SO LET'S ALL PUT ON A HAPPY

FACE.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER

THIS.

THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE...

I HAVE HAD A DREAM.

THROUGHOUT TIME...

IN MY SLEEP, THE CAUSE OF

GOD APPEARED.

AND EVEN TODAY...

IT HAPPENED A COUPLE OF

WEEKS AGO.

AND IT HAPPENED BEFORE.

GOD SPEAKS TO US THROUGH

DREAMS.

Gordon: WHAT DO YOUR

DREAMS MEAN?

IS GOD TRYING TO TELL YOU

SOMETHING?

FIND OUT WHAT TO DO WHEN

GOD SPEAKS TO YOU IN

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT."

Gordon: WHEN JOHN

HANSON STARTED WORKING, HE

MADE A DECISION ABOUT HOW HE

WOULD INVEST HIS MONEY.

AND OVER THE YEARS, HE

STUCK TO THAT PLAN, EVEN

WHEN MONEY WAS TIGHT AND THE

BILLS PILED UP.

Reporter: JOHN HANSON

SAYS SEMI RETIREMENT HAS HIS

BENEFITS.

FOR HIM, IT MEANS HAVING

TIME TO RIDE OUT INTO THE

ARIZONA DESERT ON HIS HORSE,

TAYLOR.

IT ALSO GIVES HIM TIME TO

CONSIDER THE THINGS HE HAS

LEARNED IN LIFE.

WHAT WE DO ON THIS EARTH

COUNTS FOR ETERNITY.

WE DON'T TAKE ANYTHING FROM

THIS EARTH.

IT IS NOT ABOUT THAT AND IT

IS NOT ABOUT US.

IT IS ABOUT THE LORD AND HIS

KINGDOMMENT.

Reporter KINGDOM.

Reporter: WHICH IS WHY

HE GIVES FAITHFULLY TO HIS

CHURCH AND MINISTRIES LIKE

CBN.

I REALIZED I DIDN'T WANT

TO JUST GIVE GOD TIPS.

I WANTED TO PUT HIM FIRST.

I LISTENED TO PAT'S TEACHING

THAT BY TITHING, WE'RE

LEARNING TO PUT GOD FIRST.

Reporter: HE SAYS GOD

ALWAYS PROVIDED FOR HIS

FAMILY, EVEN IN TOUGH

TIMES.

LIKE WHEN HIS WIFE,

CHRISTINE, WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH BREAST CANCER.

I SPENT A LOT OF NIGHTS

WITH HER AND MY KIDS.

I ROTATED EVENINGS WITH HER

SO SHE WAS NEVER ALONE THAT

ENTIRE TIME.

Reporter: JOHN DIDN'T

WORK FOR MONTHS, AND THE

MEDICAL BILLS STACKED UP.

AS BAD AS IT WAS THEN, I

PUT TITHING FIRST, BECAUSE I

TRUSTED GOD TO LEAD ME

THROUGH THIS.

I HAD OTHER WORK COMING IN,

AND GOD BLESSED ME WITH THAT

REGARD.

SO I STILL HAD INCOME COMING

IN DURING THAT PERIOD.

THE BILLS WERE SUBSTANTIAL,

AND GOD TOOK CARE OF THAT.

I WAS ABLE TO PAY ALL OF

THAT AS WE WENT.

Reporter: IN 2009,

CHRISTINE LOST HER BATTLE

WITH CANCER.

JOHN REACHED OUT TO CBN'S

PRAYER CENTER.

THEY WERE THERE.

AND A FEW TIMES THE

COUNSELLORS ACTUALLY CHOKED

UP AND WEPT WITH ME.

Reporter: IN TIME, JOHN

STARTED REBUILDING THIS

LIFE.

I LEARNED FROM LOSING

CHRISTINE IS THAT LIFE HERE

IS SHORT.

WE DON'T TAKE ANYTHING WITH

US.

AND I'VE BEEN ASKING GOD TO

GIVE ME MORE OF A HUNGER FOR

SEEING PEOPLE SAVED.

Reporter: A COUPLE OF

YEARS LATER, HE MET PATRICIA

AT CHURCH.

THEY FELL IN LOVE AND

MARRIED.

AND I AM BLESSED TO HAVE

A HAPPY, JOYFUL MARRIAGE.

SO I HAVE PEACE AND JOY IN

MY LIFE ONCE AGAIN.

AND THIS IS A VERY EXCITING

TIME TO BE A CHRISTIAN.

PATRICIA AND I WANT TO BE

HAPPY IN MINISTRY AND IN

WINNING SOULS, AND TITHING

IS WHAT GOD WANTS US TO DO.

Gordon: HERE ARE THE

WORDS OF JESUS: "DO NOT LAY

OUT FOR YOURSELVES TREASURES

ON EARTH, WHERE MONTH AND

RUST DESTROY, AND WHERE

THIEVES BREAK IN AND STEAL,

BUT LAY OUT FOR YOURSELF

TREASURES IN HEAVEN, WHERE

THIEVES DO NOT BREAK IN AND

STEAL.

BECAUSE WHERE YOUR TREASURE

IS, THERE YOUR HEART WILL

BE, ALSO."

AND JOHN REALIZED LIFE IS

SHORT.

HE SAID, I'M GOING TO START

LAYING OUT FOR MYSELF

TREASURES IN HEAVEN.

HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

BY MAKING SURE THAT YOU'RE

PREACHING THE GOSPEL AROUND

THE WORLD.

THAT IS WHAT IS MOST

IMPORTANT TO HIM.

THAT'S WHAT HE SAYS I WANT

TO DO, I WANT TO DEDICATE MY

LIFE TO DOING.

START THINKING ABOUT IT,

WHAT DO YOU TAKE WITH YOU TO

HEAVEN?

THE ONLY THING YOU TAKE ARE

THE PEOPLE THAT CAN GO WITH

YOU BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE

BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU DID ON

EARTH.

FOR MOST PEOPLE, A PAY CUT

WOULD NOT BE GOOD NEWS,

ESPECIALLY IN THIS ECONOMY.

LAST YEAR MIKE ANDERSON

CHOSE TO TAKE A JOB WITH A

SMALLER SALARY, AND THAT

DECISION PAID OFF IN WAYS HE

AND HIS WIFE NEVER

IMAGINED.

Reporter: IN THERE 40

PLUS YEARS OF MARRIAGE, MIKE

AND VIVI HAVE ALWAYS BEEN

GENEROUS, EVEN DURING

DIFFICULT TIMES.

I NEVER STOPPED TITHING.

I ALWAYS TITHE BECAUSE I

KNOW IT BELONGS TO GOD, AND

GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF ME.

Reporter: 2012 BROUGHT

EXCEPTIONAL CHALLENGES.

MIKE STEPPED DOWN FROM A

WELL-PAYING JOB IN THE FOOD

INDUSTRY BECAUSE THE LONG

HOURS AND LACK OF SLEEP WERE

TAKING A TOLL ON HIS

HEALTH.

IT WA

S A

LOT OF STRESS.

I'M GETTING ALONG IN MY

YEARS HERE.

Reporter: MIKE TOOK A

LESS STRESSFUL JOB AT ALMOST

HALF THE SALARY.

I WAS OKAY WITH THAT,

EVEN THOUGH AT THAT TIME MY

INCOME WAS STILL NOT VERY

GOOD BECAUSE I'M ON CALL.

Reporter: THE ANDERSONS

WERE ALSO CARRYING $30,000

IN CREDIT CARD DEBT.

THEY NEVER ESTABLISHED A

SAVINGS ACCOUNT, SO ALL

EMERGENCY EXPENDITURES HAD

TO GO ON CREDIT.

WE COULDN'T SEEM TO PAY

OFF THOSE CREDIT CARDS.

WE SAID, WE'RE GOING TO GET

OUT OF DEBT BECAUSE WE'RE

GOING TO GIVE MORE TO GOD.

Reporter: THE ANDERSONS

WERE ALREADY MEMBERS OF "THE

700 CLUB," SO THEY DECIDED

TO INCREASE THEIR GIVING.

VIVI SAW A STORY ON "THE 700

CLUB" ABOUT AN 85-YEAR-OLD

COUPLE WHO LOST EVERYTHING

DURING SUPERSTORM SANDY.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

REFURBISHED AND REBUILT

THEIR HOME.

THEY SHOWED THE LITTLE

COUPLE WALKING IN FOR THE

FIRST TIME.

I'LL NEVER FORGET.

THE LADY WAS JUST SO AMAZED,

AND IT JUST TOUCHED MY

HEART.

SO THAT DAY I CHANGED TO

PLEDGE EXPRESS AND INCREASED

TO $100.

ALL OF A SUDDEN I STARTED

GETTING MORE WORK, TO WHERE

I WAS MAKING A LOT MORE THAN

BEFORE.

Reporter: AND THEN MIKE

AND VIVI DECIDED TO TAKE

ANOTHER STEP OF FAITH.

THEY INCREASED THEIR PLEDGE

TO CBN AGAIN.

VIVI HEARD GORDON TEACH

ABOUT CREATIVE IDEAS TO

INCREASE INCOME.

GORDON WAS TALKING ABOUT

WHEN YOU GIVE TO GOD, HE

DOESN'T ALWAYS GIVE YOU IN

PAYCHECKS OR JUST NORMAL.

HE GIVES YOU CREATIVE

IDEAS.

Reporter: SO WHEN VIVI

DISCOVERED THEIR WHOLE LIFE

INSURANCE POLICY WAS GOING

TO INCREASE, SHE CASHED IT

IN AND BOUGHT A TERM LIFE

POLICY AND MADE A $25,000

PROFIT.

THAT CREATIVE IDEA, WE

TOOK A CHUNK OF MONEY OUT

AND PAID OFF CREDIT CARDS

AND PAID OFF A CAR.

AND WE HAVE ANOTHER LIFE

INSURANCE POLICY, THE SAME

AMOUNT, AND IT ISN'T THAT

MUCH MORE.

Reporter: TODAY THE

ANDERSONS ARE LIVING THEIR

DREAM IN THEIR WEST COAST

BEACH HOUSE.

THE BIBLE SAYS, IF YOU

DELIGHT YOURSELF IN THE

LORD, HE WILL GIVE YOU THE

DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.

WE DIDN'T MAKE IT HAPPEN.

WE FOLLOWED GOD, AND HE MADE

IT HAPPEN.

WE'RE BLESSED.

Gordon: JUST FOLLOW

GOD, AND HE'LL MAKE IT

HAPPEN.

HERE IS WHAT DEUTERONOMY

SAYS: "REMEMBER THE LORD

YOUR GOD, FOR IT IS HE WHO

GIS YOU POWE GIVES YOU

POWER TO GET WEALTH, THAT HE

MAY ESTABLISH HIS

COVENANT."

IF YOU LOOK AT HIS COVENANT,

HOW HE HONORS HIS WORD, HE

BACKS IT UP, AND HE IS THE

ONE WHO GIVES US THESE

THINGS, AND HE'LL GIVE YOU

CREATIVE IDEAS.

THAT'S WHAT HE LOVES TO DO.

HE LOVES TO BLESS HIS

CHILDREN.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TALK HIM

INTO IT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO ARGUE WITH

HIM.

HE WANTS TO ESTABLISH HIS

COVENANT.

WHAT IS HE WAITING FOR?

HE IS WAITING FOR YOU TO PUT

IT INTO PRACTICE.

AND WHEN YOU LIVE IN

ACCORDANCE WITH HIS RULES,

HIS COVENANT, THEN THE

BLESSINGS COME.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT SOME GOOD NEWS.

SOME MAJOR DONORS OF CBN

LOVE GIVING AND THEY WANT TO

MATCH YOUR DONATION DOLLAR

FOR DOLLAR, $50,000 FOR THE

NEXT 30 MINUTES.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS, AND WE ASK FOR

INCREASE, THAT YOU WOULD

DOUBLE, TRIPLE, QUADRUPLE.

AND FOR THOSE WHO GIVE, WE

WINDOWS AND POUR OUT A

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN YOU GIVE TO

CBN, WE WANT TO GIVE

SOMETHING BACK TO YOU.

IN OUR NEW D.V.D. "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT," YOU'LL SEE

HOW GOD USED DREAMS TO SPEAK

TO PEOPLE IN THE BIBLE.

HERE IS A PREVIEW.

Gordon: FROM EMPERORS,

PHARAOHS AND KINGS --

GOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN,

THROUGH THE AGES, SPEAKING

TO PEOPLE THROUGH DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

Gordon: THROUGH

SCIENTISTS, TEACHERS, AND

EVEN CHILDREN.

I'VE HAD THIS DREAM

BEFORE.

Gordon: SEE THE DREAMS

THAT CHANGED HISTORY, AND

LEARN WHAT TO DO WHEN GOD

PEEKS TO YOU.

> SPEAKS TO YOU.

IN GORDON ROBERTSON'S NEW

TEACHING, YOU'LL DISCOVER

HOW GOD USED DREAMS

THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.

HOW TO KNOW IF A DREAM IS

FROM GOD.

WHAT TO DO WHEN GOD SPEAKS

TO YOU IN DREAMS.

AND HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE

PLANS GOD HAS FOR YOU.

Gordon: DREAMS CAN TELL

US WHAT GOD WANTS US TO DO.

YOU CAN DREAM OF THE GOOD

WORKS GOD HAS CREATED FOR

YOU AND FIND THE

SATISFACTION IN LIFE THAT

ONLY HE CAN PROVIDE.

Announcer: "VISIONS OF

THE NIGHT," AVAILABLE NOW.

Terry: GOD HAS BEEN

SPEAKING TO PEOPLE THROUGH

DREAMS FOR GENERATIONS.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT."

BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT IS

STILL HAPPENING TODAY.

THIS IS YOURS WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," 65 CENTS A

DAY, $20 A MONTH, MAKES YOU

A "700 CLUB" MEMBER.

WILL YOU CALL THAT TOLL-FREE

NUMBER ON YOUR SCREEN RIGHT

YOU KNOW, AS GORDON JUST

MENTIONED, WE HAVE A $50,000

CHALLENGE GOING.

THAT MEANS YOU CALL, EVERY

DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL BE

MATCHED, DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR,

UP TO AND INCLUDING

$50,000.

GORDON?

Gordon: AS A SINGLE

MOTHER, JESSICA OFTEN LIVED

FROM PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK.

AT ONE POINT SHE ONLY HAD

$20 LEFT.

SHE KEPT $2 $10 TO BUY GAS,

AND USED THE OTHER $10 TO

MAKE A LIFE-CHANGING

INVESTMENT.

Reporter: JESSICA IS A

SINGLE MOM.

AS A 19-YEAR-OLD WITH A NEW

BABY, JESSICA STRUGGLED

FINANCIALLY.

SHE HAD TO DELAY HER COLLEGE

EDUCATION AND CAREER.

SHE LIVED ON A STRICT

BUDGET, CUTTING CORNERS

WHERE SHE COULD.

MY TIRES WOULD BLOWOUT ON

ME, PROBABLY ONE A WEEK, AND

I COULDN'T AFFORD TO GO TO

GET BRAND NEW TIRES ON MY

CAR.

SO WHAT I WOULD DO IS GO

DOWN THE STREET TO THE TIRE

SHOP AND HAVE THEM PUT ON

$20 TIRES.

I DID THAT FOR MONTHS, MANY

MONTHS.

Reporter: JESSICA

REMEMBERED THE TEACHING SHE

LEARNED GROWING UP IN HER

CHURCH.

I KNEW THAT BIBLICALLY

WHO I WAS AND WHO CHRIST WAS

WITH ME.

I NEEDED TO GIVE HIM HIS

PORTION THAT HE REQUIRED,

THAT HE ASKED OF ME TO

GIVE.

I JUST KNEW THAT CHRIST

WOULD COME THROUGH BECAUSE

HE DOESN'T FAIL.

HE SHOWED THAT RIGHT AWAY

WITH THOSE TIRES.

WHEN I STARTED PAYING MY

TITHES, I REALIZED I WASN'T

GETTING BLOWOUTS ANYMORE AND

I WASN'T HAVING TO PUT TIRES

ON MY CAR ANYMORE.

AND I HAD $20 TIRES ON MY

CAR FOR PROBABLY A YEAR AND

A HALF.

BECAUSE I TRUSTED HIM.

HE WAS PROVIDING.

Reporter: WHEN SHE

LANDED A TEMPORARY POSITION

WITH A CONSTRUCTION COMPANY,

HER BOSS IMMEDIATELY

EXTENDED WHAT WAS SUPPOSED

TO ONLY BE A THREE-DAY JOB.

SHE CAME UP TO ME AND

SAID, YOU'RE PROBABLY GOING

TO BE HERE A MONTH.

Reporter: OUT OF

GRATITUDE, JESSICA PUT HERE

LAST $10 OF THAT $20.

$20 IN THE OFFERING.

I THOUGHT, I CAN TRUST

YOU, TOO.

Reporter: LATER THAT

WEEK, HER BOSS SURPRISED

JESSICA AGAIN.

THAT THURSDAY SHE CAME UP

TO ME AND SHE SAID, WE ARE

GOING TO PAY YOU TOMORROW.

WE REALLY FEEL LIKE YOU

COULD USE THE MONEY.

IT WAS SUCH A GOD THING.

HE WAS COMPLETELY TAKING

CARE OF ME AND TAKING CARE

OF MY SON.

NOT ONLY DID HE GIVE ME MY

PAYCHECK THAT FRIDAY, BUT HE

GAVE ME A JOB THAT WAS

FULL-TIME AND I WAS THERE

FOR THREE AND A HALF YEARS.

Reporter: WHILE SHE

CONTINUED TO WORK, JESSICA

COMPLETED HER EDUCATION,

EARNING A BACHELOR'S DEGREE

IN ADMINISTRATION.

SHE MOVED ON TO A JOB IN A

HOUSTON CHEMICAL COMPANY.

AND IT GAVE HER A 40%

RAISE.

AND ALONG WITH TITHING TO

HER CHURCH, HE GIVES MONTHLY

TO CBN.

I REALLY LOVE "THE 700

CLUB."

I LOOK UP TO IT.

I WOULD LIKE TO BE ACTUALLY

OUT THERE DOING IT, BUT

BECAUSE I CAN'T, IT IS

SOMETHING I CAN GIVE TO.

AND CBN IS KIND OF THAT

CONNECTION TO WHAT I CAN

DO.

Reporter: WHILE JESSICA

TITHES AND GIVES, SHE

BELIEVES SHE IS SETTING AN

EXAMPLE FOR HER SON OF TRUST

IN GOD.

IT HAS ONLY BEEN NATHAN

AND ME AND GOD.

I DO BELIEVE THAT BECAUSE OF

MY OBEDIENCE TO THE LORD AND

THIS, AND TITHING, IT HAS

OPENED MY SON'S EYES,

NATHAN'S EYES, TO WHO GOD

REALLY IS, WHAT HE IS REALLY

DOING.

THAT'S NOT A SMALL THING.

AND SO TO HAVE HIM BE

COMPLETELY AWARE OF WHO

CHRIST IS EVEN THROUGH

TITHING, AND WHAT WE CAN

HAVE BECAUSE OF IT, AND MY

OBEDIENCE IS BLESSED, I CAN

TRUST HIM.

HE WILL HOLD US UP EVERY

SINGLE TIME.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE FROM DEUTERONOMY:

"AND ALL THESE BLESSINGS

SHALL COME UPON YOU AND

OVERTAKE YOU BECAUSE YOU

OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD,

YOUR GOD."

JESSICA DID THAT.

SHE DID THAT.

SHE OBEYED, AND THE

BLESSINGS STARTED COMING.

AND THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU

IF YOU JUST DO THE SAME

THING.

IF YOU WANT TO START GIVING,

GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A PART OF IT.

I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

Gordon: THE BIBLE SAYS

THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE

TERRY?

Terry: AS A CBN

PARTNER, YOU'RE HELPING US

BRING HOPE TO PEOPLE WHO

NEED IT.

LIKE A YOUNG FATHER IN

CHINA, WHO'S BABY DAUGHTER

WAS DYING.

HE SAID HE USED TO THINK

THERE WAS NO LOVE IN THIS

WORLD UNTIL HE MET A MEDICAL

TEAM FROM CBN.

MR. SHAY LOVED HIS DAUGHTER,

SHINYE, THE SECOND HE SAW

HER.

SHE WAS ADORABLE.

I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, I WANT

TO GIVE MY BABY A GOOD LIFE

AND BE THE BEST FATHER I CAN

BE.

Terry: THE SHAYS NEVER

GUESSED IN JUST SIX MONTHS,

SHINYE WOULD BE FIGHTING FOR

HER LIFE.

SHE GOT A VERY BAD COLD,

SO WE TOOK HER TO THE LOCAL

HOSPITAL, WHERE THE DOCTOR

SAID SHE HAD A HOLE IN HER

HEART AND NEEDED SURGERY.

I WAS SO SCARED FOR MY

DAUGHTER THAT I ALMOST

FAINTED.

Terry: MR. SHAY GOT A

JOB AT A ROCK QUARRY WORKING

12 HOURS A DAY TO RAISE

MONEY FOR SURGERY FOR

SHINYE.

EVERY DAY BEFORE I WENT

TO WORK, I KISSED MY BABY

GIRL GOOD-BYE.

IT WAS SO HARD TO LEAVE

HER.

SOMETIMES I COULD BARELY GO

ON.

BUT I DID ANYWAY.

I FELT LIKE IF MY DAUGHTER

DIED, IT WOULD BE MY FAULT.

Terry: THEN SHINYE GOT

PNEUMONIA.

SHE COUGHED ALL OF THE

TIME.

AND SHE COULD NOT EAT OR

SLEEP.

IT BROKE MY HEART.

AND I WISHED THAT SOMEHOW I

COULD TAKE HER PAIN UPON

MYSELF.

I HELD MY DAUGHTER, AND I

SAID, I'M SORRY, MY BABY.

I DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY

YET.

BUT I WILL KEEP TRYING.

Terry: SECRETLY

MR. SHAY WORRIED HE WOULDN'T

MAKE ENOUGH MONEY IN TIME TO

SAVE HIS DAUGHTER'S LIFE.

SO IN DESPERATION, THE

COUPLE BROUGHT SHINYE TO A

HOSPITAL IN THE CITY, WHERE

THEY BEGGED FOR HELP.

A DOCTOR PUT THE COUPLE IN

CONTACT WITH CBN.

WE SAID WE WOULD BE GLAD TO

HELP PAY FOR SHINYE'S HEART

SURGERY.

I TOLD HER, YOU ARE GOING

TO BE HEALTHY!

YOU ARE GOING TO LIVE.

Terry: A DOCTOR

REPAIRED THE HOLE IN

SHINYE'S HEART, AND SHE

RECOVERED QUICKLY.

TO CELEBRATE, HER PARENTS

JUST THREW HER A BIG PARTY.

SHE GAINED TWO POUNDS IN

JUST ONE MONTH.

NOW SHE SLEEPS WELL.

AND SHE LAUGHS A LOT, TOO.

I USED TO THINK THERE WAS

NO LOVE IN THIS WORLD, BUT

WHEN CBN HELPED US,

EVERYTHING CHANGED.

IT WAS LIKE THEY WERE FROM

HEAVEN.

NOW I'M THE HAPPIEST FATHER

IN THE WORLD.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING MY

DAUGHTER A NEW LIFE.

WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOUR

LOVE.

Terry: YOU REALLY DID

SAVE THAT LITTLE GIRL'S

LIFE.

AND CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING

THE DAD OF THAT LITTLE GIRL,

WORKING 12-HOUR DAYS IN A

ROCK QUARRY, SO DIFFICULT,

AND YET NEVER BEING ABLE TO

GET A LEG UP SO THAT YOU

COULD AFFORD THAT SURGERY.

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS MADE THAT

SURGERY POSSIBLE.

THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS

WE'RE ASKING YOU RIGHT NOW

TO GO TO YOUR PHONE AND JOIN

WITH THOUSANDS OF US WHO ARE

OUT TO TOUCH THE LIVES OF

OTHERS WITH LOVE, WITH CARE

AND CONCERN IN PRACTICAL

WAYS, AND WITH THE LOVE AND

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

BUT YOU NEED TO CALL RIGHT

GORDON?

Gordon: IN THE

PHILIPPINES, A YOUNG COUPLE

STRUGGLED TO EARN MONEY FOR

THEIR DAUGHTER'S SURGERY.

THEN A TYPHOON DESTROYED

THEIR BUSINESS, AND WHEN

THAT HAPPENED, EARNING MONEY

BECAME EVEN HARDER.

Reporter: 2-YEAR-OLD

DIANA ALWAYS WANTED TO PLAY

OUTSIDE, BUT HER MOM WAS

AFRAID.

DIANA WAS BORN WITH CROSSED

EYES AND DOUBLE VISION.

SHE OFTEN LOST HER

BALANCE AND FELL BECAUSE OF

HER VISION.

ONCE WHEN I DID LET HER RUN

OUTSIDE, SHE FELL AND GOT

HURT.

I'M AFRAID IT WILL HAPPEN

AGAIN.

Reporter: DIANA'S MOM,

DALI, TOOK HER MOM TO AN EYE

CLINIC TO SEE WHAT COULD BE

DONE.

SURGERY WAS THE ONLY OPTION,

ACCORDING TO THE DOCTOR.

BUT IT WASN'T AN OPTION FOR

THE COUPLE, WHO STRUGGLED TO

MAKE ENDS MEET.

MY HUSBAND AND I HAD BEEN

TRYING TO SAVE MONEY FOR THE

SURGERY.

BUT WHAT HE EARNS FROM

FISHING IS JUST ENOUGH FOR

FOOD.

Reporter: AND THEN

HEAVY FLOODING AND STRONG

WINDS SWEPT THROUGH THEIR

PROVINCE IN THE PHILIPPINES,

DAMAGING THEIR FISHING

BOAT.

MY HUSBAND COULDN'T WORK

ANYMORE, BUT I DIDN'T LOSE

HOPE.

I KNEW GOD WOULD HELP US.

Reporter: WHEN CBN CAME

TO THEIR COMMUNITY, WE

PROVIDED NEW BOATS FOR THE

FISHERMEN WHO LOST THEM IN

THE TYPHOON, INCLUDING ONE

FOR DIANA'S DAD.

AND THEN CBN ARRANGED

SURGERY TO REPAIR HER

CROSSED EYES.

WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT CBN

PARTNERS WERE PAYING FOR THE

SURGERY AND MEDICAL

EXPENSES, I WAS SO THANKFUL

TO GOD FOR ANSWERING MY

PRAYERS.

Reporter: SOON AFTER

THE DOCTORS REMOVED THE

BANDAGES FROM DIANA'S EYES,

SHE WAS READY TO RUN AND

PLAY OUTSIDE.

AND SHE'LL BE READY TO START

PRE-SCHOOL IN THE FALL.

MY DAUGHTER IS SO

BEAUTIFUL.

I'M SO HAPPY TO SEE HER

RUNNING WITH HER PLAYMATES.

THANK YOU, CBN.

YOU ARE GOD'S INSTRUMENT

THAT HELPED US.

Gordon: BE PART OF IT.

BE PART OF EVERYTHING WE'RE

DOING AROUND THE WORLD.

IT IS BECAUSE OF FAITHFUL

DONORS TO "700 CLUB," THAT

WE'RE ABLE TO ESTABLISH THAT

CENTER IN MANILA.

AND IT HAS GROWN, FROM 20

SECONDS LEFT ON A $50,000.

SO GO TO THE PHONE AND CALL

US, 1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: GORDON, THANK

YOU.

DID YOU KNOW BY THE TIME YOU

DIE, YOU WILL HAVE SPENT SIX

YEARS OF YOUR LIFE

DREAMING?

DOESN'T THAT SEEM LIKE A

COLOSSAL WASTE OF TIME?

IF YOU THINK IT IS, YOU

MIGHT WANT TO THINK AGAIN.

YOUR DREAMS MAY BE THE VERY

THING GOD IS USING TO SPEAK

TO YOU.

Announcer: FROM

EMPERORS, PHARAOHS AND

KINGS --

GOD HAS BEEN, ALWAYS

THROUGH THE AGES, SPEAKING

TO PEOPLE THROUGH DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

Announcer: TO

SCIENTISTS, MUSICIANS, AND

EVEN CHILDREN...

I'VE HAD THIS DREAM

BEFORE.

IT HAPPENED A COUPLE OF

WEEKS AGO.

Announcer: SEE THE

DREAMS THAT CHANGED OUR

FUTURE AND LEARN WHAT TO DO

WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO YOU.

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT,"

AVAILABLE NOW.

Wendy: I DON'T KNOW

ABOUT YOU, BUT I'M A

DREAMER.

I DREAM A LOT.

AND I KEEP A JOURNAL NEXT TO

MY BED SO I CAN RECORD THE

THINGS I THINK ARE

IMPORTANT.

NOT EVERY DREAM IS FROM GOD,

BUT MANY OF THEM ARE.

AND GORDON PUT TOGETHER THIS

PHENOMENAL NEW TEACHING,

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT," HOW

GOD SPEAKS TO YOU THROUGH

YOUR DREAMS.

THIS IS YOURS WHEN YOU GIVE

US A CALL RIGHT NOW AND SAY,

YES, I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

1-800-759-0700.

THAT'S THE NUMBER TO CALL.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CHALLENGE.

LET'S PUT THE NUMBER UP,

$50,000.

WITH JUST 12 MINUTES AND 35

SECONDS LEFT ON THE CLOCK.

THAT MEANS IF YOU CALL RIGHT

NOW, YOUR PLEDGE WILL BE

DOUBLED.

SO PLEASE DON'T DELAY.

GORDON?

Gordon: TODAY GARY AND

SANDY ARE SELF-EMPLOYED AND

LIVING IN THEIR DREAM

HOUSE.

BUT AT ONE TIME THEY WERE

OUT OF WORK, OUT OF MONEY,

AND PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE.

Reporter: TUCKED INTO

THE BLACK HILLS OF SOUTH

DAKOTA LIES THIS HISTORIC

MANSION, HOME OF GARY AND

SANDY COE.

THE PROPERTY IS MORE THAN A

HOME TO THE COES, IT IS A

PLACE FOR WEDDINGS.

IN 1990, GARY, A COMMERCIAL

PILOT, BECAME ILL AND

COULDN'T WORK.

ONE DAY HE GOT OUT OF BED

AND HE COULDN'T MOVE.

HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH WHAT

WAS CALLED SIDO MEGALA

VIRUS.

HIS SYSTEM SHUT DOWN.

Reporter: HE EVENTUALLY

GOT BETTER, BUT THEY LOST

THEIR HOME.

THEY CUT BACK ON EVERYTHING

EXCEPT TITHING AND GIVING.

EVERYTHING WE HAVE REALLY

DOES BELONG TO HIM.

WE KEPT THAT COMMITMENT,

AND ALL I COULD SAY IS DOORS

STARTED OPENING FOR US THAT

ONLY GOD COULD OPEN.

Reporter: NOW THE

FAMILY HAD STARTED A NEW

BUSINESS.

THEY MADE TWO COMMITMENTS,

TO RUN IT DEBT-FREE AND TO

GIVE OFF THE PROFITS.

THE BUSINESS GREW STEADILY,

AND IN SHORT TIME THEY

RECOVERED FROM THEIR

FINANCIAL CRISIS.

AFTER YEARS OF STRUGGLE,

THINGS JUST HAVE BECOME

EASY.

Reporter: THEY ALSO

BECAME CBN PARTNERS.

I KNOW WHEN I GIVE TO

CBN, THEY ARE FEEDING

PEOPLE, THEY ARE CLOTHING

PEOPLE, THEY'RE GOING

INTO

EVERY PART OF THE WORLD IF

THERE IS A DISASTER.

THEY'RE TEACHING THE WORD OF

GOD.

SO WHEN THE HOMESTAKE

MANSION CAME UP FOR SALE,

THEY WERE FINAL IN A

POSITION TO MAKE AN OFFER.

THEY GOT THE HOME FOR HALF

THE ASKING PRICE.

TO THINK THAT WE WOULD

EVEN BE HERE, AND THAT GOD

WOULD ENTRUST US WITH HIS

PROPERTY, IT'S JUST THE

GOODNESS OF GOD.

Reporter: TODAY THE

COUPLE'S BUSINESS HAS

CONTINUED TO GROW,

AND

THEY'RE CONVINCED IT IS

BECAUSE OF THEIR

FAITHFULNESS TO GIVE.

GOD HAS OPENED UP A

TREASURE THAT ONLY HE COULD

DO.

Gordon: WHEN YOU DO IT

GOD'S WAY, HE OPENS UP

TREASURES THAT ONLY HE CAN

DO.

HE OPENS UP THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POURS OUT A

BLESSING YOU CANNOT

CONTAIN.

SO IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT,

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE THAT

HAPPEN, DO IT HIS WAY.

WHEN YOU FOLLOW HIS

INSTRUCTIONS, THAT'S WHEN

THE BLESSINGS COME.

SO IF GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU

DO GIVE, NOW IS THE TIME TO

DO IT.

GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WHEN YOU CALL, ASK FOR

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING, WHERE THE BANK DOES

ALL OF THE WORK.

THERE ARE NO CHECKS TO

WRITE.

WE CAN SEND AS OUR GIFT TO

YOU, "POWER FOR LIFE,"

MONTHLY TEACHING C.D.s.

SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE THOSE,

ASK FOR PLEDGE EXPRESS WHEN

YOU CALL.

Terry: IN THE REMOTE

COMMUNITIES OF HONDURAS, IT

IS HARD FOR WOMEN TO FIND

WORK.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING" IS

HELPING THEM START

BUSINESSES OF THEIR OWN.

Reporter: AFTER HER

HUSBAND DIED, MARIA COULDN'T

FIND REGULAR WORK.

IN THIS RURAL PART OF

HONDURAS, THE ONLY JOB

AVAILABLE WAS AS A FARM

WORKER.

UNFORTUNATELY, SHE DIDN'T

ALWAYS GET HIRED.

THEY TOLD ME THAT THE JOB

WAS FOR MEN AND NOT FOR

WOMEN BECAUSE WOMEN ARE NOT

GOOD AT HARD LABOR.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

MARIA'S DAUGHTER, HEIDI, HAS

TO WAKE UP BY HERSELF EACH

MORNING, EAT A MEAGER

BREAKFAST, AND GET READY FOR

SCHOOL.

I KNEW MY MOM HAD TO GO

TO WORK, BUT I DIDN'T LIKE

TO BE ALONE.

I WAS AFRAID.

Reporter: BEFORE HIS

DEATH, MARIA'S HUSBAND HAD

PLANTED SOME CROPS NEXT TO

THEIR HOME.

MARIA DREMPT OF

DOING THAT

AGAIN SO SHE COULD BE CLOSER

TO HER DAUGHTER, BUT SHE

DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY

SEEDS AND FERTILIZER.

MARIA EVEN WENT TO THE BANK

TO GET A LOAN TO BUY SEEDS.

THE BANK TURNED HER DOWN.

THAT NIGHT WE HAD NO FOOD

TO EAT.

I WAS SO SCARED ABOUT WHAT

WOULD HAPPEN THE NEXT DAY.

WHAT WOULD I DO TO FEED MY

CHILD?

Reporter: THEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" GAVE

MARIA AND 20 OTHER WIDOWS

AND SINGLE MOTHERS, SEEDLING

POTATOES, AND FERTILIZER TO

START THEIR OWN FARMS.

I DIDN'T KNOW PEOPLE WHO

DIDN'T KNOW ME WOULD HELP ME

LIKE THIS.

Reporter: IN JUST THREE

MONTHS, MARIA HAS MADE $250

PROFIT FROM SELLING HER

POTATOES.

AND NOW THEY HAVE ENOUGH

MONEY FOR FOOD AND ENOUGH

LEFT OVER TO PLANT A WHOLE

NEW CROP.

I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER.

Terry: MARIA AND MANY

SINGLE MOMS LIKE HER ARE IN

DUSDUSTRIOUS, AND THEY WANT

TO WORK HARD.

YOU ALLOW US TO COME INTO

THE MIDST OF THEIR NEED AND

GIVE HOPE, OPPORTUNITY, AND

A FUTURE.

AND A HELPING HAND WHO SAYS

THERE IS SOMEONE WHO IS

STANDING WITH YOU, WHO IS

WATCHING OUT FOR YOU, AND

WHO LOVES YOU.

OF COURSE, IT IS THE LOVE OF

GOD.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

YOU REALLY CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE LIKE MARIA AND HER

FAMILY.

SO CALL NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

SAY, I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, AND THAT MAKES YOU A

GENERAL "700 CLUB" MEMBER.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A "700

CLUB" MEMBER, JOIN "700

CLUB" GOLD.

THAT'S A GIFT OF $40 A

MONTH.

MAYBE YOU'RE A GOLD MEMBER,

THEN GO UP TO THE THOUSAND

CLUB LEVEL.

THAT'S $84 A MONTH.

MAYBE YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN

THE 2500 CLUB, AND THEY GIVE

AT $209 A MONTH.

AND THEN THERE IS THE

FOUNDERS CLUB, OR MAYBE YOU

FRIENDS OF OURS IN THE

CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE, $10,000

OR MORE A YEAR.

ASK GOD WHAT HE WOULD LIKE

TO YOU DO BECAUSE WHEN WE

REACH OUT TO TOUCH THE NEEDS

OF OTHERS, GOD BLESSES US.

IT IS PART OF THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY.

GORDON?

Gordon: WHEN CARLA'S

HUSBAND WALKED OUT, HE LEFT

HER WHY FIVE CHILDREN AND NO

JOB.

TODAY SHE IS A SUCCESSFUL

BUSINESS WOMAN WITH A GREAT

FUTURE, THANKS TO "OPERATION

BLESSING."

Reporter: THE LAST

MESSAGE CARLA RECEIVED FROM

HER HUSBAND CAME ON A PIECE

OF CARDBOARD.

HE SAID HE WAS LEAVING HER.

JUST A NOTE, NO

EXPLANATION.

I WAS DEVASTATED AND FELT SO

HELPLESS.

HE WAS GONE.

Reporter: IN AN INSTANT

CARLA BECAME A SINGLE MOTHER

OF TWO WITH NO JOB AND $5 IN

HER POCKET.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO.

I HAD NOTHING TO FEED THE

CHILDREN.

I CRIED.

Reporter: AFTER SHE

SOLD THEIR FEW POSSESSIONS,

CARLA STARTED DOING LAUNDRY,

BUT THAT ONLY PROVIDED

INCOME ONE TO TWO DAYS A

WEEK.

BY THE END OF THE MONTH, SHE

LOST THE HOME THEY WERE

RENTING.

WE LEFT THERE AND STARTED

WORKING DOWN THE STREETS.

Reporter: ONE DAY AFTER

FINDING A FRIEND TO STAY

WITH, CARLA MET SOMEONE FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING."

THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT

GOD BROUGHT THESE KIND

PEOPLE TO ME.

Reporter: WE KNEW

CARLA'S GREATEST NEED WAS TO

PROVIDE FOR HER FAMILY.

SO WE GAVE HER A NEW CART

AND EVERYTHING ELSE NEEDED

TO START A SMALL BUSINESS

SELLING FOOD.

IT WAS AMAZING.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

I CRIED WHEN I SAW HOW THEY

WERE HELPING ME.

Reporter: CARLA HAS

BEEN RUNNING HER SMALL

BUSINESS FOR SIX MONTHS, AND

EACH MONTH SHE MAKES $300.

THIS ALLOWS HER TO RENT A

HOUSE AND PROVIDE FOR HER

CHILDREN.

WHEN PEOPLE SEE MY FOOD

CART, THEY ASK ME ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING."

AND I TELL THEM WHAT A

WONDERFUL BLESSING THEY HAVE

BEEN TO ME.

Gordon: AND WHAT A

WONDERFUL BLESSING YOU'VE

BEEN IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

YOU'RE PART OF THAT.

YOU ENABLE US TO DO THAT.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

IT, WE -- OUR SLOGAN IS WE

DON'T JUST GIVE HANDOUTS.

WE GIVE HANDS UP.

SO PEOPLE CAN HAVE A HOPE

AND A FUTURE, AND THEY CAN

TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR

THEIR FAMILIES, AND THE

DIGNITY OF BEING ABLE TO

EARN THEIR OWN INCOME.

AND ALL OF THAT IS MADE

POSSIBLE BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE

YOU CARE ENOUGH TO GIVE, TO

SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE A

PART OF IT.

A PORTION OF EVERY GIFT GOES

INTO THE WORK OF "OPERATION

BLESSING" TO HELP PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD.

AND YOU CAN BE A PART OF ALL

OF IT WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

CALL US NOW,

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

WE'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS.

WE HAVE SOME PARTNERS WHO

WANT TO INCREASE THIS

CHALLENGE, SO THEY'RE ADDING

ANOTHER $75,000 TO IT,

TAKING IT TO $125,000.

PEOPLE ARE ALREADY TALKING

ABOUT THIS.

WE WANTED YOU TO HEAR WHAT

THEY'RE SAYING.

TAKE A LOOK.

I JUST WATCHED "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT," AND I THOUGHT

IT WAS AMAZING.

IT IS A VERY POWERFUL

VIDEO THAT REALLY MAKES YOU

THINK ABOUT GOD DELIVERING A

MESSAGE THROUGH DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

GOORD GORDON'S D.V.D.

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT" WAS A

GREAT D.V.D.

HEARING THE STORIES OF

PEOPLE WHO ALSO HAD DREAMS

AND VISIONS ENCOURAGED ME.

KNOWING NOW THAT HE

PROVIDES INFORMATION THROUGH

DREAMS, I NEED TO BE A

LITTLE BIT MORE OPEN.

I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT

TO SEE THAT THESE EVENTS DO

HAPPEN.

IT HAS INSPIRED ME TO

ACTUALLY GO BACK IN THE

BIBLE.

THE D.V.D. MADE ME FEEL

ENCOURAGED AND PUT HOPE IN

ME, TO KNOW THAT GOD STILL

SPEAKS TO HIS PEOPLE TODAY.

THERE ARE OPPORTUNITIES.

IF YOU'RE READY, HE WILL

SPEAK TO YOU.

Wendy: IF YOU WOULD

LIKE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW

GOD USED DREAMS THROUGHOUT

THE BIBLE, AND HOW HE IS

SPEAKING TO YOU IN YOUR OWN

DREAMS, WE'VE GOT THE

ANSWER.

HERE IT IS, "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT," HOW GOD IS SPEAKING

TO US IN DREAMS.

WHAT DO YOUR DREAMS MEAN?

THIS IS GORDON'S PHENOMENAL

FAMILY.

TERRY?

Terry: HERE IN AMERICA,

MOST 5-YEAR-OLDS ARE JUST

STARTING KINDERGARTEN, JET

YET IN EASTERN INDIA, ONE

LITTLE BOY SPENT HIS DAYS ON

THE STREETS BEGGING FOR

FOOD.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

Terry: EVERY DAY, FROM

DAWN UNTIL DUSK, SUDU SINGS

THROUGHOUT HIS SMALL VILLAGE

IN INDIA.

IT IS THE ONLY WAY THE

5-YEAR-OLD CAN MAKE ENOUGH

MONEY TO BUY FOOD.

MY FATHER DIED BEFORE I

WAS BORN.

AND MY MOTHER DIED THE DAY

SHE GAVE BIRTH TO ME.

Terry: HIS GRANDMOTHER

SELLS FIREWOOD SHE COLLECTS

FROM THE JUNGLE, WH WHILE

SUDU BEGS ON THE SHOPS.

SHE MAKES ENOUGH TO LIVE ON

HER OWN, BUT SOMETIMES THEIR

COMBINED INCOME ISN'T ENOUGH

TO BUY FOOD FOR BOTH.

SO SHE DECIDED TO TAKE HIM

TO A CHILDREN'S HOME,

SUPPORTED BY "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

HERE HE HAS FOOD EVERY DAY

AND HE IS ENROLLED IN A

CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.

BEFORE COMING HERE, I HAD

TO WORK ALL THE TIME.

BUT NOW I CAN GO TO SCHOOL.

AND I CAN LEARN MANY

THINGS.

Terry: IT DIDN'T TAKE

LONG BEFORE SUDU ASKED JESUS

TO BE HIS LORD AND SAVIOR.

NOW INSTEAD OF SINGING FOR

FOOD, HE SINGS ABOUT GOD'S

LOVE.

*

MY NEW PARENTS AND

FRIENDS LOVE ME SO MUCH.

I REALLY LIKE IT HERE.

Terry: HE IS IN A HOME

WITH A MOTHER AND FATHER

OVERSEEING THE CHILDREN THAT

LIVE THERE.

HE IS GETTING AN EDUCATION,

EATING WELL EVERY DAY -,

DOING WHAT CHILDREN ARE

SUPPOSED TO DO.

NOT SINGING AND BEGGING FOR

FOOD, BUT LEARNING, GROWING,

BECOMING, DREAMING.

YOU MAKE THAT POSSIBLE FOR

CHILDREN LIKE SUDU ALL

AROUND THE WORLD WHEN YOU

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

GO TO YOUR PHONE AND CALL.

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE AN

INCREDIBLE DIFFERENCE.

Gordon: WELL, MORE AND

MORE SCHOOLS ARE SPONSORING

ANTI-BULLYING COMPAIGNS, AND

IT IS NOT JUST AN AMERICAN

PROBLEM.

IN MANY THIRD-WORLD

COUNTRIES, YOUNG CHILDREN

ARE BULLIED BECAUSE OF THEIR

SEVERE BIRTH DEFECTS.

Reporter: 9-YEAR-OLD

ARMON LIKES HELPING HIS

PARENTS AT THE BRICK FACTORY

BETTER PLAYING WITH THE KIDS

AT SCHOOL.

HIS CLASSMATES MAKE FUN OF

HIM BECAUSE OF HIS CLEFT

LIP.

IT MAKES ME WANT TO CRY.

Reporter: ARMON'S

MOTHER HAS STRUGGLED TO HELP

HER SON COPE WITH THE VERBAL

ABUSE AT SCHOOL.

HE TOLD ME, THE MEAN KIDS

CALL ME NAMES.

I TOLD HIM TO FIGHT BACK,

BUT HE SAYS HE DOESN'T WANT

TO.

Reporter: BUT ARMON'S

PARENTS COULDN'T AFFORD THE

COST OF AN OPERATION, SO CBN

OFFERED TO HELP.

WE WERE VERY HAPPY AND

EXCITED WHEN WE LEARNED THAT

CBN WOULD PROVIDE FREE

SURGERY FOR ARMON.

I'M READY TO GO IN FOR MY

OPERATION.

Reporter: THE

CBN-SPONSORED SURGERY

PROVIDED A BRAND NEW SMILE

FOR ARMON, AND WITHIN A FEW

WEEKS, HE WAS BACK IN

SCHOOL.

I WAS VERY SURPRISED TO

SEE MY LIPS.

I WAS VERY HAPPY.

HE IS NOT SHY ANYMORE.

HARD FOR HER GRANDCHILDREN,

AND UNTIL RECENTLY, THAT

MEANT WALKING TWO MILES FOR

DRINKING WATER.

Reporter: EVERY TIME

MRS. KIM GIVES HER

GRANDCHILDREN DRINKING

WATER, EVEN AFTER SHE BOILS

IT, SHE WORRIES THEY WILL

GET SICK.

THEIR ONLY SUPPLY OF

DRINKING WATER COMES FROM

THIS MUDDY POND.

MY GRANDCHILDREN OFTEN

SUFFER WITH PAIN BECAUSE OF

THE WATER.

BUT WE HAVE TO MAKE DUE WITH

IT.

I HAVE NOWHERE ELSE TO GET

IT.

Reporter: MR. KIM TAKES

CARE OF HER GRANDCHILDREN

SINCE HER PARENTS WORK HARD

IN A GARMENT FACTORY FAR

FROM HOME.

EVERY DAY, TWICE A DAY, SHE

WALKS FAR TO COLLECT THE

DRINKING WATER.

ONE TIME SHE FELL AND BROKE

HER ANKLE.

WHEN I TRIED TO STAND UP,

IT HURT SO MUCH THAT I

CRIED.

I CALLED FOR HELP, BUT NO

ONE CAME.

Reporter: MRS. KIM

SLOWLY MADE HER WAY HOME,

LEAVING THE WATER BUCKET

BEHIND.

IT WAS A WEEK BEFORE SHE WAS

ABLE TO GO BACK AND GET

MORE.

NOT LONG AFTER THAT, CBN DUG

A WELL RIGHT IN MRS. KIM'S

VILLAGE, VERY NEAR HER

HOME.

NOW SHE AND HER FAMILY HAVE

SAFE, CLEAN WATER FOR

DRINKING AND BATHING.

I NEVER EXPECTED THAT OUR

VILLAGE WOULD HAVE ITS OWN

WELL.

MY FAMILY WILL NOT GET SICK

ANYMORE.

AND THERE WILL BE NO MORE

ACCIDENTS WHEN WE GET

WATER.

I AM VERY HAPPY.

THANK YOU, CBN.

HAS SPOKEN TO HIS FOLLOWERS

THROUGH DREAMS.

IN THE NEW D.V.D., "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT," YOU'LL LEARN

THAT GOD IS STILL PEEKING

SPEAKING TO PEOPLE THROUGH

DREAMS TODAY.

I HAD A DREAM ONE NIGHT

THAT WAS A LIFE-CHANGING

DREAM FOR ME.

I GOT OUT OF MY BED AND I

BEGAN TO WALK THE FLOOR AND

I BEGAN TO PRAY AND I BEGAN

TO CALL OUT FOR MY BROTHER'S

LIFE.

THE NEXT MORNING HE WAS ON

HIS WAY TO SCHOOL, HE CAME

TO AN INTERSECTION, LIKE I

HAD SEEN IN THE DREAM, AND

GOT HIT BY A CAR THAT RAN A

RED LIGHT, AND IT ROLLED HIS

CAR OVER.

THE DIFFERENCE IS MY BROTHER

WALKED OUT OF THE CAR

WITHOUT EVEN A SCRATCH ON

HIS BODY.

I REAMLIZE REALIZED THAT

GOD WAS SPEAKING TO ME IN MY

DREAMS.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD LOVES TO

TEACH PEOPLE AS

INTERCESSORS.

I BELIEVE OUR JOB IN

PARTNERING WITH GOD IS TO

GET IN THE WAY OF THE

DEVIL'S PLAN.

Wendy: JANE IS RIGHT.

I KNOW GOD HAS USED DREAMS

TO WARN ME ABOUT MANY THINGS

IN MY LIFE.

WE WANT TO HELP YOU

GORDON?

Gordon: WHEN 7-YEAR-OLD

GIZER STARTED DOING POORLY

IN SCHOOL, HIS TEACHER

PUNISHED HIM.

WHAT SHE DIDN'T KNOW WAS HER

STUDENT WAS SLOWLY GOING

BLIND.

Reporter: 7-YEAR-OLD

GIZER LOVES ART.

HE DRAWS EVERYTHING HE

SEES.

I LIKE TO DRAW AND COLOR

WITH MY CRAYONS.

Reporter: BUT DOING HIS

FAVORITE ACTIVITY BECAME

MORE DIFFICULT FOR GIZER

AFTER HE DEVELOPED A

JUVENILE CATARACT IN HIS

EYE.

WITH HIS EYE I CAN'T SEE

ANYTHING.

Reporter: RINA IS A

WIDOW, AND HAS COME TO

DEPEND ON GIZER TO HELP HER

WITH THE DAILY CHORES.

SECRETLY SHE WORRIES HE WILL

DEVELOP A CATARACT IN HIS

OTHER EYE.

SHE DOES LAUNDRY TO SUPPORT

THEM, BUT THAT ONLY BRINGS

IN ENOUGH MONEY FOR FOOD.

I TRIED TO THINK OF

ANYTHING I COULD DO TO GET

EYE SURGERY FOR HIM, BUT IT

WAS IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM.

I ASK GO

D

EAVE DAY

EVERY DAY

TO HELP US.

Reporter: WHEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" LEARNED

OF GIZER'S CONDITION, WE

QUICKLY ARRANGED FOR HIM TO

HAVE FREE SURGERY, FOR THEM

TO REMOVE THE CATARACT AND

FOR THEM TO PUT A NEW LENS

INTO THE EYE.

THE SURGERY WAS

DONE.

A FEW WEEKS LATER WE WENT

BACK TO VISIT GIZER AND

FOUND HE COULD SEE

PERFECTLY.

I AM VERY HAPPY BECAUSE I

CAN SEE WITH BOTH EYES.

WHEN I GROW UP, I AM GOING

TO BE A PAINTER.

I AM SO THANKFUL MY SON

RECEIVED THIS SURGERY.

YOU HAVE BEEN A GREAT

BLESSING TO US.

TERRY?

Terry: GYPSIES ARE

AMONG THE POOREST PEOPLE IN

UKRAINE.

THEY'RE TREATED AS OUTCASTS,

AND MOST OF THEM DON'T HAVE

ENOUGH FOOD OR CLOTHING OR

SHELTER TO EVEN MAKE IT

THROUGH THE WINTER.

Reporter: VADIC AND HIS

MOTHER, ROSA, STRUGGLE EVERY

WINTER JUST TO STAY WARM.

WE HAVE A TERRIBLE

STOVE.

IT PROVIDES NO WARMTH, JUST

SMOKE.

I CHOKE ALL THE TIME.

MY MOTHER DOES, TOO.

Reporter: THE SMOKE

INSIDE THE HOUSE IS SO THICK

AND SUFFOCATING, IT COULD

KILL THEM.

SO WHEN WE WENT TO THEIR

VILLAGE ON A MEDICAL

MISSION, WE KNEW WE HAD TO

DO SOMETHING EXTRA TO HELP

THEM.

WE PUT IN INSULATION, FIXED

THEIR WINDOWS AND DOORS, AND

INSTALLED A NEW STOVE.

I LOVE THE NEW STOVE.

IT DOESN'T SMOKE AT ALL.

I ALSO GOT SOME GOOD

CLOTHES, WHICH WERE VERY

NICE.

Reporter: WITH THE HELP

OF CBN, VADIC AND HIS MOM

CAN COOK HOT MEALS EASILY

AND SAFELY.

AND THEY WON'T GET SICK OR

RISK SUFFOCATING OR FREEZING

ANYMORE.

IT IS SNOWING OUTSIDE,

BUT INSIDE WE WILL BE WARM

AND COMFORTABLE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE FOR

US.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: RIGHT NOW WE ARE

AT WORK IN OVER A DOZEN

GYPSY CAMPS IN UKRAINE,

MAKING THAT KIND OF A

DIFFERENCE.

OUTCASTS IN THEIR CULTURE,

AND YET YOU ALLOW US TO GO

RIGHT INTO THE MIDST OF

THEIR COMMUNITIES AND THEIR

VILLAGES AND TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE WITH THINGS THAT

LAST, THINGS THAT MAKE A

DIFFERENCE, ESPECIALLY WITH

THE MESSAGE OF GOD'S LOVE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

YOU ARE TRULY, TRULY MEETING

A NEED THERE.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT

NOW.

THAT'S HOW YOU MAKE THAT

DIFFERENCE.

WHEN YOU CALL, WHEN YOU GET

UP FROM YOUR CHAIR AND SAY,

TODAY I'M GOING TO BE THE

ONE WHO CALLS.

TODAY I'M GOING TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

OR I'M GOING TO INCREASE MY

MEMBERSHIP.

I CAN DO MORE.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TODAY TO BE

THE ONE WHO GOES TO THE

PHONE AND SAYS, YES, I WANT

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

PLEASE DO IT RIGHT NOW.

WENDY?

Wendy: THANKS, TERRY.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," WE'LL SEND YOU OUR

NEW D.V.D., "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT."

PEOPLE ARE ALREADY TALKING

ABOUT IT, AND WE WANTED YOU

TO HEAR WHAT THEY'RE

SAYING.

I JUST WATCHED "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT," AND I THOUGHT

IT WAS A AMAZING.

THE D.V.D. MADE ME FELL

ENCOURAGED AND PUT HOPE IN

ME TO KNOW THAT GOD STILL

SPEAKS TO PEOPLE TODAY

THROUGH DREAMS AND VILLAGES,

AND HE CAN BRING HIS DREAMS

AND PLANS TO EARTH IF WE

LISTEN AND FOLLOW WHAT HE

CALLED US TO DO.

SEEING THE D.V.D. AND

HEARING THE STORIES OF

PEOPLE WHO ALSO HAD DREAMS

AND VISIONS ENCOURAGED ME TO

CONTINUE TO HEAR FROM GOD,

AND ALLOW MYSELF TO BE OPEN

TO HEARING FROM GOD.

THIS CAN HAPPEN TO ANYBODY,

THAT GOD CAN SPEAK TO YOU

AND GOD CAN MOVE, AND HE

DOES, STILL, TO THIS DAY.

Wendy: YES, HE DOES.

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT," THIS

CAN BE YOURS WHEN YOU GIVE

US A CALL RIGHT NOW.

GORDON?

Gordon: IN MANY

THIRD-WORLD COUNTRIES, A

LITTLE HELP GOES A LONG

WAY.

IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO

SUPPORT AN ENTIRE FAMILY.

FOR ONE MAN IN INDIA, ALL IT

TOOK WAS A FISHING NET AND A

BICYCLE.

Terry: WHEN FLOODS HIT

THE EAST COAST OF INDIA,

DELAY'S FISHING NETS WASHED

AWAY, LEAVING HIM WITH NO

WAY TO MAKE A LIVING OR FEED

HIS FAMILY.

IT WAS HORRIBLE TO SEE

OUR ENTIRE VILLAGE SUBMERGED

UNDER WATER.

WE LOST EVERYTHING WE

OWNED.

MY FAMILY WAS STARVING.

Terry: CBN RESPONDED

QUICKLY TO THE DISASTER WITH

RELIEF SUPPLIES, FOOD, AND

SLEEPING BAGS.

WHEN WE LOST EVERYTHING,

YOU CAN THE ONLY ONES THAT

HELPED US.

YOU GAVE US WHAT WE NEEDED

TO SURVIVE.

Terry: WHAT WE GAVE HIM

NEXT REALLY PUT A SMILE ON

HIS DAUGHTER'S FACE.

I WAS SO HAPPY WHEN YOU

GAVE MY FATHER A BRAND NEW

FISHING NET, A BICYCLE TO

BRING HIS FISH TO THE

MARKET, AND AN ICE BOX TO

KEEP THE FISH FRESH.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HELPING US.

YOU GAVE ME EXACTLY WHAT I

NEEDED TO SUPPORT MY

FAMILY.

YOU HAVE RESTORED MY LIFE.

Gordon: IT HAS BEEN A

GLORIOUS DAY.

WE HAD A $125,000 ON THE

CHALLENGE.

AGAINST THAT, YOU GAVE

$163,000.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALM 115: "MAY

THE LORD GIVE YOU INCREASE,

MORE AND MORE, YOU AND YOUR

CHILDREN."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.
