The 700 Club - Jan. 24, 2014

Imagine growing medical bills, losing your job, and creditors calling regularly for money you don’t have. That was Jason and Beth’s life. When they made a small investment, an amazing journey began. Watch how their investment grew and how ... Read Transcript

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

HEAVY SNOW AND ICE ARE

CREATING DEADLY CONDITIONS

ON AMERICA'S ROADS AND

HIGHWAYS.

ON THURSDAY THREE PEOPLE

DIED IN A 40-VEHICLE PILE-UP

IN INDIANA.

Terry: THE COLD WEATHER

IS REACHING FROM NORTH

DAKOTA ALL THE WAY DOWN TO

TEXAS.

MARK MARTIN HAS THAT STORY.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THE WAY

IT LOOKED.

EVEN I WAS IN TEARS JUST

LOOKING AT IT.

IT IS HORRIBLE.

Mark: MORE THAN 40

VEHICLES SMASHED TOGETHER ON

INTERSTATE 94 IN

NORTHWESTERN INDIANA.

BIG RIGS AND CARS TANGLED

AFTER WHITEOUT CONDITIONS.

THREE PEOPLE DIED AND MORE

THAN 20 WERE INJURED.

THE COLLISION WAS, LIKE,

BOOM.

LIKE A GUNSHOT.

YOU HEARD IT, AND IT WAS

CRAZY.

Reporter: THEN THERE IS

THE DEEP FREEZE, AFFECTING

195 MILLION AMERICANS.

EVEN THE DEEP SOUTH IS NOT

IMMUNE.

AT LEAST 35 STATES, FROM THE

MIDWEST TO THE GULF, ARE

DEALING WITH TEMPERATURES

BELOW FREEZING.

LIKE AT THAT, IT IS SO

COLD.

Reporter: CREWS PREPARE

FOR ICE.

I NEED LAYERS ON MY BODY

AND LAYERS ON MAY HANDS.

Mark: E IN THE WINDY

CITY OF CHICAGO, RESIDENTS

BRACE FOR WEATHER THAT FEELS

LIKE 20 BELOW ZERO.

I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO

SUMMER.

Mark: WINDCHILLS

DROPPING TO TEMPERATURES TO

45 BELOW.

IN NEARBY WISCONSIN, A

PROPANE SHORTAGE HAS

FAMILIES TAKING DRASTIC

ACTIONS.

FAMILIES LIB TH LIKE THE

BALDWINS.

THE CHILDREN ARE BUNDLED UP

INSIDE.

NORMALLY THEY'RE

BAREFOOT.

THEY'VE GOT SOCKS ON.

WE HAVE A HAT AND THE BABY.

Reporter: THEY ARE ONE

OF MANY FAMILIES RUNNING OUT

OF PROPANE DUE TO A PROPANE

SHORTAGE.

SHE HAS A WOOD-BURNING

FIREPLACE TO HEAT HER HOME,

BUT KEEPING IT GOING IS

TOUGH.

I HAVE TO GET UP THREE OR

FOUR TIMES TO KEEP IT

GOING.

I'VE GOT MY WALKER, BUT I'M

AFRAID OF FALLING AGAIN.

Reporter: A BRUTAL

WINTER AFFECTING PEOPLE

INSIDE AND OUT.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: IT IS A BRUTAL

WINTER.

IF YOU CAN STAY INDOORS,

THAT WOULD BE BETTER.

AND IF YOU CAN GET AWAY TO

HOTTER CLIMATES, IN

HONOLULU, 68°.

AND THERE IS A BRUTAL ATTACK

IN EGYPT.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: AT LEAST FIVE

PEOPLE ARE DEAD AFTER THE

THREE BOMBINGS IN CAIRO.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

SIGNIFICANT ATTACKS YET.

FOUR DIED IN THE HEART OF

THE CITY, WHERE A CAR BOMB

TARGETED POLICE

HEADQUARTERS.

HOURS LATER, ANOTHER PERSON

DIED IN THE BLAST NEAR METRO

STATION.

DOZENS WERE INJURED.

THE ATTACKS COME ON THE EVE

OF THE 23rd, THAT OUSTED

MOHAMMED MORSI.

> OBAMACARE IS MORE

UNPOPULAR THAN EVER.

59% OF VOTERS OPPOSE THE

LAW, WHILE 36% SUPPORT IT.

THE POLL ALSO FOUND 63%

THINK THE NEW LAW WILL RAISE

THEIR TAXES, AND 62% SAY IT

WILL IN CREASE THEIR

INSURANCE COSTS.

ONLY 19% THINK IT WILL

IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THEIR

CARE, WHILE 39% SAY IT WILL

GET WORSE.

> A GOVERNMENT REVIEW

PANEL SAYS THE NATIONAL

SECURITY AGENCY'S DAILY

COLLECTION OF PHONE RECORDS

IS ILLEGAL, AND IT SAYS IT

CAN'T FIND A SINGLE INSTANCE

WHEN THE PROGRAM DIRECTLY

HELPED TO DISCOVER OR

DISRUPT A TERRORIST ATTACK.

THE PRIVACY AND CIVIL

LIBERTIES OVERSIGHT PANEL

RECOMMENDED THAT THE

GOVERNMENT SHUT THE PROGRAM

DOWN.

TWO OF THE FIVE MEMBERS IN

THE PANEL SAY THE PHONE

SWEEPS ARE TOO VALUABLE TO

STOP, BUT THE OTHERS WARN IT

HAS SERIOUS IMPLICATIONS FOR

THE PRIVACY OF AMERICANS.

GORDON, AS UNPOPULAR THIS

PROGRAM IS, IT IS

INTERESTING TO LOOK AT THE

LAWMAKERS WHO THINK IN

NECESSARY TO KEEP IT GOING.

Gordon: I WOULD SIDE ON

THE SIDE OF WE SHOULD STOP

THIS.

THERE IS NO PROBABLE CAUSE,

AND WE'RE GETTING INTO A BIG

BROTHER ENVIRONMENT, WHERE

THE GOVERNMENT LITERALLY

KNOWS EVERYTHING WE DO

ONLINE.

I THINK THAT'S A CULTURE WE

SHOULDN'T FOSTER, WE

SHOULDN'T GO FORWARD.

SO IT'S WHERE YOU'RE FIND ME

ON PATRICK LEAHY'S SIDE, BUT

ON THIS ONE I AM.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER

THIS.

Announcer: THROUGHOUT

THE BIBLE --

I HAVE HAD A DREAM.

Announcer: THROUGHOUT

TIME --

IN MY SLEEP, THE CAUSE OF

GOD APPEARED.

Announcer: AND EVEN

TODAY...

IT HAPPENED A COUPLE OF

WEEKS AGO.

I HAD THIS DREAM BEFORE.

Announcer: GOD SPEAKS

TO US THROUGH DREAMS.

Gordon: WHAT DO YOUR

DREAMS MEAN?

IS GOD TRYING TO TELL YOU

SOMETHING?

Announcer: FIND OUT

WHAT TO DO WHEN GOD SPEAKS

TO YOU IN "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT."

Gordon: JASON AND BETH

WERE OUT OF WORK AND LIVING

ON FOO FOOD STAMPS.

AT ONE POINT THEY HAD ONLY

$1.25 LEFT, AND HERE IS HOW

THEY USED TO IT CHANGE THEIR

LIVES.

Reporter: JASON AND

BETH'S RELATIONSHIP WAS A

CONSTANT STRUGGLE.

THINGS WERE ABSOLUTELY

TERRIBLE.

HE WOULD LIE TO GET OUT AND

PARTY WITH WHOEVER HE COULD

PARTY WITH.

AND THEN WHEN HE WAS AT

WORK, I WOULD DO WHATEVER I

WANTED TO DO WITH MY FRIENDS

TO GET THROUGH THE DAY.

AND WE WERE SPIRITUALLY

UNHINGED, COMPLETELY

SPIRITUALLY UNHINGED.

Reporter: THEY WERE

ALSO BROKE.

JASON HAD BEEN LAID OFF FROM

HIS JOB AS AN ELECTRICIAN,

AND THEY WERE LIVING ON

UNEMPLOYMENT CHECKS AND FOOD

STAMPS.

CREDITORS WERE CALLING

US.

I HAD UNPAID MEDICAL BILLS

THAT I HAD TO TAKE CARE OF.

IT WAS REALLY TOUGH.

FINANCIALLY WE WERE

STRUGGLING WEEK TO WEEK, BUT

OFTEN DAY TO DAY.

WE WOULD HAVE TO CALL EITHER

MY PARENTS OR HIS PARENTS,

OR JUST NOT PAY THE BILL.

IT IS VERY HUMBLING

HAVING TO CALL YOUR MOM AND

HER KNOWING THAT YOU'RE ON

FOOD STAMPS.

Reporter: JASON'S

FATHER ENCOURAGED THEM TO GO

TO CHURCH.

THEY DID BE IN 2011, BOTH

JASON AND BETH REDEDICATED

THEIR LIVES TO JESUS

CHRIST.

I STARTED READING MY

BIBLE.

AS I STARTED READING THE

BIBLE MORE, AND IT STARTED

WORKING IN ME AND CHANGING

MY HEART.

Reporter: AS THEIR

FAITH GREW STRONGER, SO DID

THEIR MARRIAGE.

BUT JASON STILL DIDN'T HAVE

A JOB.

HIS FATHER SUGGESTED THEY

START

TITHING, SO ON THEIR

NEXT TRIP TO CHURCH, THEY

TOOK A STEP OF FAITH.

ALL WE HAD IS I HAD A

LITTLE CRUMBLED UP LITTLE

BILL IN MY POCKET, AND JASON

HAD A QUARTER IN HIS.

I TRIED TO GET THE LITTLE

QUIN CRINKLE US OUT THE

BEST AND JASON GOT THE

QUARTER OUT, AND WE PUT IT

IN THE BASKET.

WE WOULD BE FAITHFUL, AND

GOD WOULD BE FAITHFUL BACK.

WE WOULD GIVE THE $1TITY

1.25, AND HE WOULD BE

FAITHFUL THROUGH THE WEEK.

AND THEN WE WERE ABLE TO

GIVE $20, AND HE WAS

FAITHFUL THROUGHOUT THE

WEEK.

AND THEN HE WAS FAITHFUL

ABOVE AND BEYOND BY GIVING

JASON A JOB.

AND WE WERE SO EXCITED.

AS WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO

GIVE MORE, HE HAS BEEN

BLESSING US MORE AND MORE.

AND NOW I'M GOING TO BE

HIRED ON WITH THIS NEW

COMPANY AND I'LL BE MAKING

EVEN MORE MONEY.

Reporter: IN FACT, THE

COMPANY PROVIDES A RAISE

EVERY SIX MONTHS, AND IS

ALSO PAYING JASON TO FINISH

SCHOOL TO BE A JOURNEYMAN

ELECTRICIAN.

THEY SAY AS THEY'VE GROWN IN

THEIR FAITH, THEY'VE MADE

GIVING A PRIORITY.

ONE PLACE CLOSE TO THEIR

HEART IS CBN.

WHEN I SEE THESE SWEET

CHILDREN GATHERED AROUND THE

CLEAN, CLEAR WATER, YOU CAN

SEE LIVING WATER JUST GOING

INTO THOSE CHILDREN'S

VILLAGES, AND YOU'RE SO

PROUD TO BE PART OF THAT.

THAT WAS THE MAIN THING THAT

TOUCHED MY HEART WHEN I

WANTED TO BECOME PART OF

CBN.

Reporter: JASON AND

BETH BELIEVE THAT GIVING TO

GOD IS MORE THAN JUST AN ACT

OF KINDNESS.

IT IS NOT ABOUT ME GIVING

TO HIM, BECAUSE HE DOESN'T

NEED IT.

IT IS ABOUT HIM REACHING

DOWN AND PULLING ME UP.

AND THE ACT OF GIVING IS

WHAT HE USES TO INTERACT.

AND HE SAYS, PARTICIPATE,

PARTICIPATE IN MY KINGDOM.

YOUR MONEY IS NOT SOMETHING

I NEED.

I HAVE MANY CHILDREN THAT I

LOVE.

YOU GIVE TO ME, AND I HELP

MY CHILDREN, AND YOU'RE

HELPING YOUR BROTHERS AND

YOUR SISTERS.

Gordon: BETH HAS THE

PRINCIPLE DOWN.

WHEN YOU GIVE TO GOD, YOU'RE

HELPING OTHERS, AND THEN HE

REWARDS THAT.

HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM

MALACHI 3: "BRING ALL OF THE

TIENGTITHES INTO THE STORE

HOUSE THAT THERE WILL BE

FOOD IN MY HOUSE, AND PROVE

ME NOW IN THIS, IF I WILL

NOT OPEN THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR OUT A

BLESSING THAT THERE WILL NOT

BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE

IT."

THAT HAPPENED TO JASON AND

BETH, AND IT CAN HAPPEN TO

YOU IF YOU JUST FOLLOW THE

SAME PRINCIPLE.

> A FEW YEARS AGO, MIKE

WAS BETWEEN JOBS AND LOW ON

CASH.

SOT HE WAS SURPRISED TO

LEARN WHAT HIS WIFE WAS

DOING WITH THE FEW DOLLARS

THEY HAD LEFT.

Reporter: 61-YEAR-OLD

MICHAEL CALAMIA HAS RIDDEN

AND SOLD BIKES ALL HIS

LIFE.

I LIKE TO PUT MY IDEAS

INTO A MOTORCYCLE THAT IS

DIFFERENT.

NONE OF THE MOTORCYCLES I

BUILD ARE THE SAME.

Reporter: MIKE MARRIED

MARY CHRIS IN THE

PHILIPPINES IN 2005.

THEY LIVED THERE FOR A

YEAR.

WHEN THEY MOVED TO THE

UNITED STATES, MIKE HAD A

HARD TIME FINDING A JOB.

MIKE KNEW THAT MARY CHRIS

WATCHED "THE 700 CLUB" EVERY

DAY, BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW SHE

WAS GIVING MONEY TO THE

MINISTRY.

I SAID, HONEY, WHAT ARE

YOU DOING?

AND SHE SAID, I'VE BEEN

DOING THIS FOR A COUPLE OF

MONTHS.

I TOLD HER WE COULDN'T

AFFORD TO SEND $20.

I WASN'T WORKING, AND SHE

WAS DOING IRONING AND THINGS

FOR A NEIGHBOR.

Reporter: BUT THEN MIKE

BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT WHAT HE

SAW HIS WIFE DOING WITH THE

LITTLE SHE WAS MAKING.

MY WIFE WAS GIVING ALL

SHE HAD.

AND SHE SHOWED ME -- I'M

SORRY.

I'M SORRY.

SHE SHOWED ME WHAT REAL

GIVING IS, THE HEART OF

GIVING.

Reporter: MARY CHRIS

ALSO URGED MIKE TO WATCH

"THE 700 CLUB" WITH HER.

WE STARTED WATCHING "700

CLUB" AND LISTENING TO PAT

AND GORDON.

AND WE STARTED LEARNING

ABOUT MALACHI 3: 10.

AND I SAID, OKAY, IF I'M

GOING TO GIVE $20, THE LORD

WILL GIVE IT BACK TO US.

Reporter: SO MIKE SENT

OFF A CHECK TO CBN.

ABOUT A WEEK LATER, I

SOLD A MOTORCYCLE ENGINE I

HAD IN MY SHED FOR $2500.

I HAD IT THERE FOR YEARS.

I HAD ALMOST FORGOTTEN ABOUT

IT.

Reporter: WHEN MIKE

WENT BACK INTO THE HOUSE AND

TOLD MARY CHRIS WHAT

HAPPENED, SHE REMINDED HIM

ABOUT WHAT THEY'D BE

LEARNING.

THE FIRST THING MY WIFE

SAID IS YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE

$250 TO THE LORD.

AND I SAID WHY?

AND THEN I SAID, YOU'RE

RIGHT, HONEY, WE HAVE TO

GIVE $250 TO THE LORD.

AND SO WE MAILED IT INTO

CBN.

Reporter: SOON AFTER

THAT, THEY WERE WATCHING A

CBN TELETHON, AND THEY

INCREASED THEIR PLEDGE TO

$40 A MONTH, "700 CLUB"

GOLD.

SHORTLY AFTER THAT I GOT

A JOB.

AND THEN WE HAVE FRIENDS

THAT HAVE A BEAUTIFUL HOME,

AND THEY ASKED US TO LIVE

THERE AND TAKE CARE OF THE

HOUSE FREE OF RENT.

RENT-FREE FOR OVER FIVE

YEARS?

YOU KNOW, THAT WAS A

BLESSING.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

THEN INCREASED TO THE

THOUSAND CLUB, AND

EVENTUALLY BECAME CBN

FOUNDERS.

OUR INCOME HAS

INCREASED.

AND IT'S REAL FUNNY BECAUSE

EVERY TIME WE INCREASE OUR

GIVING, THE LORD FINDS WAYS

TO INCREASE OUR EARNINGS.

IT IS REALLY STRANGE.

I WENT FROM MAKING $20 AN

HOUR TO MAKING $42 AN HOUR.

Reporter: NOT ONLY

THAT, MARY CHRIS STARTED A

SMALL BUSINESS CLEANING

HOUSES.

OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS, SHE

HAS GONE FROM ONE CLIENT TO

SEVEN.

MIKE AND MARY CHRIS KNOW THE

ANSWER TO GOD'S PROVISION IN

THEIR LIFE IS SIMPLE.

THE SECRET IS OBEYING

HIM.

THAT'S THE SECRET.

YOU ASK ANY CHRISTIAN, DO

YOU BELIEVE THE BIBLE?

OF COURSE.

DO YOU BELIEVE GOD CAN'T

LIE?

OF COURSE HE CAN'T LIE.

THEN WHY DON'T YOU BELIEVE

THIS?

GOD SAYS TESTS HIM.

PROVE HIM WRONG.

YOU CAN'T PROVE HIM WRONG.

HE'S GOING TO PROVE HIMSELF

RIGHT.

JUST BY OBEYING WHAT HE ASKS

YOU TO DO.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE FROM PROVERBS: "KEEP

MY COMMANDS IN YOUR HEART

FOR THEY WILL PROLONG YOUR

LIFE MANY YEARS AND BRING

YOU PROSPERITY.

LET LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS

NEVER LEAVE YOU.

THEN YOU WILL WIN FAVOR AND

A GOOD NAME IN THE SIGHT OF

GOD AND MAN."

MIKE AND MARY CHRIS LEARNED

IT.

THEY DID THAT, THEY KEPT THE

COMMANDS IN THE HEART.

THAT'S WHERE GOD IS

INTERESTED IN.

IS IT COMING FROM YOUR

HEART?

ARE YOU LIVING FROM A SENSE

OF OBLIGATION OR BECAUSE YOU

REALLY WANT TO LIVE THAT

WAY?

AND MARY CHRIS SHOWED MIKE

THE SECRET.

AND WHEN HE STARTED PUTTING

INTO PRACTICE IN HIS LIFE,

THE SAME BLESSINGS

HAPPENED.

THE PROMISE CAME TRUE FOR

THEM, AND IT CAN COME TRUE

FOR YOU IF YOU JUST FOLLOW

THE SAME PRINCIPLE.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS.

SOME CBN PARTNERS LOVE

GIVING TO CBN.

AND SO THEY'VE CREATED A

CHALLENGE POOL WHERE WE GET

TO MATCH YOUR DONATION

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

$50,000 FOR THE NEXT 30

MINUTES.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING

OVER THIS.

AND WE ASK FOR YOUR

ANOINTING, THAT YOU WOULD BE

WITH US.

AND THAT YOU WOULD SPEAK TO

THOSE WATCHING RIGHT NOW AND

ENCOURAGE THEM AND BLESS

THEM.

BE WITH THEM, FOR WE ASK IT

ALL IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, $50,000 ON A

CHALLENGE.

30 MINUTES ON THE CLOCK.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT."

FIND OUT HOW GOD CAN GIVE

YOU CREATIVE IDEAS,

DIRECTION FOR YOUR FUTURE,

AND EVEN SOLUTIONS TO

PROBLEMS, AND ALL WHILE

YOU'RE SLEEPING.

Gordon: THE BIBLE SAYS

THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE

VISIONS OF THE NIGHT.

THE QUESTION FOR US TODAY

IS: DOES GOD STILL SPEAK IN

OUR DREAMS?

CAN GOD USE OUR DREAMS TO

WARN US, INSTRUCT US,

INSPIRE US, CALL US TO PRAY,

AND BUILD OUR FAITH?

Announcer: IN GORDON

ROBERTSON'S NEWEST D.V.D.

TEACHING, "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT," YOU'LL DISCOVER SHOW

GOD USED DREAMS THROUGHOUT

THE BIBLE, HOW TO KNOW IF A

DREAM IS FROM GOD, WHAT TO

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: GET CBN'S

MONTH.

THERE'S OUR TOLL-FREE NUMBER

ON THE SCREEN RIGHT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

LET US HEAR YOU FROM.

Gordon: NOT LONG AGO,

LA TIE LATIESHA WAS LIVING

ON UNEMPLOYMENT AND SHE WAS

OVERWHELMED WITH BILLS.

Reporter: LATISHA LOVES

HER JOB AS SERVING AS A

MANAGER FOR A HEALTH CARE

COMPANY.

AND SHE LOVES RAISING HER

5-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER.

A FEW YEARS AGO, IT WAS A

DIFFERENT PICTURE.

LATISHA WAS RECENTLY

DISCOVERED AND CARING FOR

HER BABY.

NOT VERY HAPPY WITH

MYSELF AT THAT TIME, AND

VERY UNSURE.

BUT IN THE BACK OF MY MIND,

I JUST KNEW THAT GOD WOULD

PROVIDE.

I JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW.

I WAS LOOKING AT MY MESS AND

SAYING, GOD, HOW CAN YOU

BLESS THIS SITUATION?

HOW CAN YOU HELP US HERE AND

NOW?

THIS IS TOO MUCH.

THIS IS TOO MUCH.

Reporter: AS LATISHA

SCRAPED BY ON HER SAVINGS

AND UNEMPLOYMENT CHECKS, THE

BILLS BECAME UNBEARABLE.

FOOD WAS SCARCE IN THE

HOUSE SOMETIMES.

WE BECAME BEST FRIENDS WITH

THE PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY

SANDWICH.

Reporter: BUT EVEN IN

HER TIME OF NEED, LATISHA

TITHED FAITHFULLY TO HER

CHURCH, SOMETHING SHE

STARTED MONTHS BEFORE.

I SEEN GOD WORK BEFORE,

WHY WOULD I STOP NOW?

WHETHER I'M GOING TO TITHE

FROM MY WAGES OR

UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS OR A

CHECK IN THE MAIL, I'M GOING

TO GIVE GOD WHAT I SAID I

WOULD GIVE HIM.

Reporter: IT CAME FROM

SOMETHING SHE LEARNED IN

CHURCH.

THEY TAUGHT A BASIC

BIBLICAL PRINCIPLE ABOUT

SOWING.

Reporter: NOT ONLY

THAT, LATISHA DECIDED TO

TRUST GOD AND GIVE MORE.

SHORTLY AFTER, HER PHONE

WOULD RING.

EVERY TIME MY PHONE WOULD

RING, IT WAS A DIFFERENT

JOB, A DIFFERENT EMPLOYER

SAYING, ARE YOU AVAILABLE

FOR AN INTERVIEW.

Reporter: LATISHA WAS

EXCITED TO GET BACK TO WORK,

BUT SOON SHE WAS READY FOR

THE NEXT STEP.

SO SHE DECIDED TO GIVE

MORE.

ONE DAY HER SUPERVISOR

APPROACHED HER.

SHE HANDED ME A FOLDED UP

PIECE OF PAPER.

AND SHE WAS SHOWING ME

ANOTHER JOB.

SHE CAME TO ME AND SHE SAID,

I BELIEVE IN YOU AND I

BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE AN

ABUNDANT POTENTIAL TO DO

MUCH MORE THAT YOU'RE DOING

RIGHT HERE.

LOOK AT THIS POSITION AND

APPLY.

Reporter: LATISHA

APPLIED FOR THE JOB, AND

THREE WEEKS LATER...

I WAS DRIVING TO MY

DAUGHTER'S SCHOOL WHEN I

RECEIVED A PHONE CALL.

AND I ANSWERED THE PHONE,

AND IT IS THE H.R. DIRECTOR

FROM THE DREAM JOB.

AND HE SAID, I DON'T WANT TO

TAKE UP MUCH MORE OF YOUR

TIME, BUT I'D LIKE TO KNOW

IF YOU COULD START THIS

POSITION IN TWO WEEKS.

I HAD TO PULL OVER.

I HAD TO PULL OVER.

I WAS ON THE PHONE, AND

HE'S, LIKE, ARE YOU THERE?

LATISHA, ARE YOU THERE?

AND I SAID, YES, CAN YOU

GIVE ME A MINUTE.

I PUT THE PHONE ON HOLD, AND

I WAS SCREAMING HALLELUJAH.

Reporter: WITH HER NEW

JOB, HER SALARY HAD

DOUBLED.

SHE CREDITS ALL OF HER

SUCCESS TO GOD'S

FAITHFULNESS.

I HAD TO DO THIS.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY OTHER

RESOURCE, SO I HAD TO GET TO

KNOW GOD AS MY SOURCE.

THIS IS QUOTED ALL OF THE

TIME, LUKE 6: 38: "GIVE AND

IT SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU,

IN GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED

DOWN, SHAKEN TOGETHER, AND

RUNNING OVER.

FOR WITH THE SAME MEASURE

THAT YOU GIVE, IT SHALL BE

MEASURED BACK TO YOU."

I'M SITTING HERE SAYING THAT

GOD HAS JUST BEEN SO

FAITHFUL.

I MEAN, REALLY, I COULD HAVE

BEEN ANYWHERE ELSE.

IT COULD HAVE GONE ANOTHER

WAY, IT REALLY COULD HAVE.

BUT GOD HAS JUST BEEN SO

FAITHFUL.

Gordon: AND HE'LL BE

FAITHFUL TO YOU IF YOU JUST

PUT THE SAME PRINCIPLE INTO

PRACTICE.

NOW, LATISHA LEARNED THAT

GOD WAS HER SOURCE.

AND BECAUSE SHE HAD THAT

FIRM PRINCIPLE, THEN FOR HER

PUTTING INTO ACTION LUKE 6:

38 WASN'T A STRUGGLE FOR

HER.

HERE IT IS: "GIVE AND IT

SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU."

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR GOD TO

PROVIDE, YOU HAVE TO PUT IT

INTO ACTION.

YOU HAVE TO INITIATE IT.

WE CALL IT THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY HERE.

GIVGIVE AND IT WILL BE

GIVEN UNTO YOU.

WHERE YOU PUT IT INTO

MOTION, THEN GOD KICKS IN

AND HE GIVES UNTO YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO START THAT,

GIVE US A CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

$20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY.

TO PEOPLE THROUGH DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

Gordon: THROUGH

SCIENTISTS, MUSICIANS, AND

EVEN CHILDREN.

I'VE HAD THIS DREAM

BEFORE.

IT HAPPENED A COUPLE OF

WEEKS BEFORE.

I'VE HAD THIS DREAM BEFORE.

Gordon: SEE THE DREAMS

PLEASE GO TO YOUR PHONES

RIGHT NOW.

I'M GOING TO THROW IT OVER

TO MISS TERRY.

Terry: WHEN YOU GIVE,

YOU'RE GIVING HOPE TO PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD, LIKE THIS

LITTLE BOY IN CHINA, WHO HAS

A WHOLE NEW FUTURE AND IT'S

THANKS TO PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

EVERY TIME LITTLE JUN HOMA

TRIED TO MAKE FRIENDS, THE

OTHER CHILDREN JUST

LAUGHED.

HE TRIED SO HARD TO GET

ALONG WITH PEOPLE.

HE USED TO COME HOME

CRYING AND POINTING AT HIS

LIPS.

THE KIDS CALLED HIM RABBIT

LIPS.

I JUST HELD HIM IN MY ARMS

AND CRIED WITH HIM.

Terry: JUN HO WAS BORN

WITH A SEVERE CLEFT LIP AND

PALATE.

HE HAD A HARD TIME EATING,

SO HE WAS SMALL FOR HIS

AGE.

AND AS HARD AS THE COUPLE

TRIED TO SAVE MONEY FOR

CLEFT LIP SURGERY, THEY

COULD NEVER AFFORD IT.

SOON JUN HO GAVE UP TRYING

TO MAKE FRIENDS AND SPENT

ALL HIS TIME WITH HIS PET

BUNNY RABBITS.

IT WAS THE ONLY FRIEND HE

HAD WHO WOULD NOT LAUGH AT

HIM.

I KNEW THE LONGER HE HAD TO

LOOK AT HIMSELF WITH THAT

CLEFT LIP, THE MORE INSECURE

HE WOULD BE.

I WORRIED ABOUT THIS

FUTURE, BUT THERE WAS

NOTHING I COULD DO.

Terry: AFTER ASKING

EVERY ORGANIZATION THEY KNEW

OF FOR ASSISTANCE, THE

FAMILY WAS JUST ABOUT TO

GIVE UP HOPE.

THEN THEY HEARD ABOUT CBN.

WE OFFERED TO HELP PROVIDE

CLEFT LIP AND PALATE SURGERY

FOR JUN HO.

THERE WAS A REAL LIGHT IN

OUR DARK WORLD.

I KNEW AT ONCE MY SON'S LIP

WOULD BE FIXED.

FINALLY HIS BROKEN HEART

WOULD BE HEALED.

Terry: JUN HO CAME OUT

OF SURGERY WITH A CONFIDENCE

HE NEVER HAD BEFORE.

TODAY HE HAS LOTS OF FRIENDS

AND GREAT HOPE FOR HIS

FUTURE.

IT IS LIKE HE IS A

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT BOY.

HE CAN EAT NOW.

SO HE IS GETTING BIGGER.

HE LOVES TO SMILE, AND HE

HAS A VERY OUTGOING

PERSONALITY.

HE IS EVEN GOING TO START

PRE-SCHOOL SOON.

NOW JUN HO LIKES TO LOOK

AT HIMSELF IN THE MIRROR.

BUT MORE IMPORTANT, HIS

CHARACTER IS HEALTHY NOW.

AS A FATHER, I JUST WANT TO

SAY THANK YOU.

WHEN OTHER PEOPLE WENT OUT

OF THEIR WAY TO AVOID US,

CBN CAME TO US FROM FAR AWAY

TO HELP, AND YOU DIDN'T EVEN

KNOW US.

I CAN REALLY FEEL THE LOVE.

Terry: CAN YOU BELIEVE

THE TRANSFORMATION IN THIS

LITTLE BOY?

IT'S NOT JUST THE PHYSICAL

TRANSFORMATION OF HIS

BEAUTIFUL SMILE NOW.

IT'S HIS HEART.

IT'S HIS FEELINGS ABOUT

HIMSELF.

HE WAS AT A PLACE WHERE HE

WAS POINTING TO HIS MOUTH

AND CRYING.

HE KNEW THAT PEOPLE WERE

MAKING FUN OF HIM.

THAT PEOPLE WERE PUSHING

AWAY FROM HIM.

YOU'VE GIVEN HIM HOPE AND A

FUTURE IN JUST SO MANY WAYS,

MORE THAN WE CAN BEGIN TO

EXPRESS.

AND WE WANT TO SAY THANK

YOU.

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS, YOU MADE

THAT POSSIBLE.

AND IT IS THE KIND OF THING

YOU'RE DOING AROUND THE

WORLD, BRINGING HOPE RIGHT

Gordon: LAST NOVEMBER,

A TORNADO STRUCK A SMALL

TOWN IN ILLINOIS, AND THE

STORM LEFT THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE HOMELESS, INCLUDING

LISA AND JESSE HUNTER.

THERE WASN'T ANY REAL

WARNING.

IT CAME TOO QUICKLY.

AND IN NOVEMBER, WHO THINKS

A TORNADO IS GOING TO COME.

Reporter: WHEN A

POWERFUL TORNADO TORE

THROUGH THEIR TOWN, LISA AND

JESSE HUNTER'S HOME WAS

DESTROYED.

THERE WERE APARTMENT

COMPLEXES IN FRONT OF WHERE

WE ARE, A SIX FOOT WALL

STICKING OUT OF THE GROUND.

IT WAS DEVASTATION.

IT WAS UNREAL.

Reporter: THEIR HOME

WAS GONE.

THEY HAD FEW POSSESSIONS

LEFT INTACT, AND NO RENTER'S

INSURANCE.

LISA, A REGISTERED NURSE,

EVEN LOST ALL HER WORK

CLOTHES.

THEY HAD NO IDEA HOW THEY

WOULD START OVER.

THAT'S WHEN VOLUNTEERS FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING" OFFERED

TO HELP.

THE NEXT THING I KNOW,

THERE ARE 16 PEOPLE FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING,"

HELPING ME GO THROUGH THINGS

THAT I WAS READY TO CLOSE

THE BOOK AND WALK AWAY FROM

BECAUSE I WAS DONE.

AND "OPERATION BLESSING"

FOUND TONS OF STUFF AND PUT

IT IN TOTES FOR US.

IT IS AMAZING.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENS

UNTIL IT HITS YOU AND RANDOM

STRANGERS WALK UP AND OFFER

HOPE.

Reporter: LITTLE DID

THE HUNTERS KNOW "OPERATION

BLESSING" HAD JUST BEGUN TO

HELP.

WHILE THEY WERE PREPARING TO

MOVE INTO THEIR NEW

APARTMENT WITH NO FURNITURE

OR BELONGINGS, WE COMPLETELY

FURNISHED AND DECORATED

THEIR NEW HOME.

[CHEERING]

OH, MY GOSH.

I CAN'T EVEN TELL YOU --

IT'S JUST UNBELIEVER.

UNBELIEVABLE.

YOU WALK IN AND IT IS

DECORATIONS THAT I WOULD

HAVE PICKED OUT, FURNITURE I

WOULD HAVE PICKED OUT.

IT IS AMAZING TO THINK 13

DAYS AGO TO NOW IS THIS.

NOW I'M SHOCKED AND I HAVE

TO PROCESS THIS.

IT IS WONDERFUL.

AND THANK YOU WOULD NEVER BE

ENOUGH WORDS TO SAY TO YOU

GUYS AND EVERYBODY THAT HAS

HELPED.

Reporter: WE ALSO GAVE

LISA NEW SCRUBS, SHOES, AND

GIFT CARDS SO SHE CAN BUY

WHATEVER ELSE SHE NEEDS TO

GO BACK TO WORK.

BEFORE WE LEFT, WE PRAYED

WITH JESSE AND LISA AND

ENCOURAGED THEM AS THEY SET

TAUOUT TO REBUILD THEIR

LIVES.

WE'RE REALLY THANKFUL AND

GRATEFUL FOR WHAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" HAS DONE FOR US.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

Gordon: YOU CAN BE A

SO GO TO THE PHONE AND CALL

1-800-759-0700.

WELL, STUDIES SHOW THAT

AMERICANS NOW OWE MORE MONEY

ON STUDENT LOANS THAN ON

THEIR CARS OR CREDIT CARDS.

AND THAT WAS THE CASE FOR

CHARLIE AND AMY, UNTIL

CHARLIE FOUND A WAY TO

TRIPLE HIS INCOME AND PAY

OFF THEIR DEBT.

Reporter: CHARLIE AND

AMY SCOTT LOVE SPENDING TIME

AT THEIR HOME IN TEXAS WITH

THEIR THREE YOUNG KIDS.

GOD JOB!

Reporter: BEFORE THEY

TOOK ON RAISING A FAMILY,

THEY WERE A YOUNG COUPLE

FRESH OUT OF COLLEGE, TRYING

TO GET AHEAD.

THAT WAS TOUGH TO DO

CONSIDERING THEY OWED TENS

OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN

STUDENT LOANS.

AS A GUY, YOU FEEL LIKE

YOU HAVE A BAG OF BRICKS ON

YOUR BACK.

EVERY DAY YOU'RE WAKING UP

CARRYING THESE HUGE

BURDENS.

Reporter: AT THE TIME,

CHARLIE WAS A MANAGER AT AN

ICE PLANT, WHILE AMY TAUGHT

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

CHARLIE WANTED TO USE HIS

ENGINEERING DEGREE, BUT SO

FAR HE HADN'T FOUND

ANYTHING.

NOT ONLY ARE WE

CHALLENGED TRYING TO GET OUT

OF DEBT, BUT ALSO WITH ME,

AS A HUSBAND, TRYING TO FIND

A FULFILLING VOCATION.

Reporter: EVEN THEN,

THEY WERE DETERMINED TO

GIVE.

NO MATTER WHAT IS GOING

ON IN OUR LIVES, THIS

BELONGS TO GOD.

NO MATTER HOW BIG OUR

DEBT IS, WE'RE GOING TO MAKE

TITHING ONE OF THE

CORNERSTONES OF OUR

MARRIAGE.

ROW THEY GAVE TO THEIR

CHURCH AND ALSO TO CBN.

THOUGH SOME WONDERED, IS

THAT THE BEST WAY TO GET OUT

OF DEBT?

HOW CAN YOU GET OUT OF

DEBT WHILE AT THE SAME

GIVING MONEY?

AND IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

WE JUST HAD A PEACE THAT

THIS IS WHAT WE'RE SUPPOSED

TO DO.

IF YOU STICK WITH IT AND

YOUR FAITHFUL AND YOU TRUST

GOD, GOD ALWAYS COMES TRUE.

Reporter: AFTER TWO

YEARS, CHARLIE SAYS GOD

OPENED UP AN OPPORTUNITY FOR

HIM IN THE OIL AND GAS

INDUSTRY AS AN ENGINEER.

IT WAS A PERFECT FIT.

I KNEW IT WAS FROM GOD

BECAUSE IT IS SOMETHING I

COULDN'T EVEN DREAM UP.

WE DIDN'T RAISE OUR STANDARD

OF LIVING.

AND WE JUST USED THAT

SURPLUS I GOT FROM THIS NEW

JOB AND APPLIED IT TO OUR

DEBT.

Reporter: SOON CHARLIE

GOT A RAISE AND THEIR INCOME

TRIPLED.

THEY WERE ABLE TO PAY OFF

THEIR STUDENT LOANS SOONER

THAN THEY EVER THOUGHT

POSSIBLE.

WHEN I PAID OFF THAT LAST

CHECK, IT WAS A FRESH

OF

BREATH AIR.

WE FELT TOTALLY FREE.

Reporter: NOW CHARLIE

AND AMY HAD THE MONEY TO BUY

THEIR DREAM HOME.

CHARLIE IS DOING SO GOOD

WITH HIS CAREER, AMY QUIT

HER JOB TO SPEND MORE TIME

WITH THE KIDS.

THEY BELIEVE ALL OF THIS

HAPPENED BECAUSE THEY DID

THINGS GOD'S WAY.

TRUST GOD, TRY IT, AND

SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

WITH OBEDIENCE COMES

BLESSING.

WHEN YOU TRUST GOD AND YOU

TAKE A STEP OUT AND APPLY

THAT FAITH, THAT'S LIVING

FAITH.

THAT JUST SHOWS THE POWER OF

GOD IN OUR LIFE.

Gordon: I LIKE TO SAY

THAT FAITH IS AN ACTION.

WHEN YOU PUT YOUR FAITH INTO

ACTION, WHEN YOU ACT WHAT

YOU BELIEVE, THAT'S WHEN THE

BLESSINGS, THAT'S WHEN THE

RESULT COMES.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT, CALL

US.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

I WANT TO BE A PART OF

EVERYTHING YOU'RE DOING

GOSPEL GO AROUND THE WORLD,

WE'RE DOING THAT.

PROGRAMS IN 15 DIFFERENT

PRODUCTION CENTERS, ALL

LOCATED STRATEGICALLY AROUND

THE WORLD.

WHERE WE TRAIN LOCAL

YOU'RE A PART OF THAT WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

BECAUSE A PORTION OF EVERY

GIFT GOES INTO THE WORK OF

CBN INTERNATIONAL, TO BRING

THE GOSPEL TO PEOPLE WHO

AFRICA AND INDONESIA AND THE

PHILIPPINES, IF YOU WANT TO

SEE THE GOSPEL GO OUT IN

LATIN-AMERICA, BE A PART OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

JOIN US NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: IN THE

PHILIPPINES, A YOUNG GIRL

NAMED SANDY WAS BORN WITH A

HOLE IN HER HEART.

HER PARENTS COULDN'T AFFORD

THE SURGERY THAT WOULD SAVE

SANDY'S LIFE, BUT THEN THEY

MET A TEAM FROM CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE."

Reporter: BECAUSE OF A

SERIOUS MEDICAL CONDITION,

7-YEAR-OLD SANDY CANNOT GO

TO SCHOOL LIKE HER BROTHER.

INSTEAD, SHE HAS TO STAY

WITH HER MOM WHILE SHE GOES

TO WORK.

I STOPPED GOING TO SCHOOL

BECAUSE I HAVE A BAD HEART.

Reporter: SANDY WAS

BORN WITH A HOLE IN HER

HEART.

THAT'S MADE IT DIFFICULT FOR

HER TO BREATHE OR DO ANY

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY.

I FEEL PAIN IN MY CHEST.

WHEN I PLAY, I GET TIRED

EASILY.

I HAVE TO SIT DOWN MOST OF

THE TIME.

ONE NIGHT SHE WAS

BREATHING SO HARD I RUSHED

HER TO THE HOSPITAL.

I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO

LOSE HER.

SOMETIMES I WISHED HER

SICKNESS WAS LIKE A DRESS.

I WOULD HAVE TAKEN IT AND

WORN IT IN HER PLACE.

IT IS SO HARD.

Reporter: ALEXANDRA AND

HER HUSBAND KNEW THAT HEART

SURGERY COULD SAVE THEIR

DAUGHTER'S LIFE, BUT THEIR

COMBINED INCOME COULD BARELY

PAY FOR MEDICINE.

WHEN SOMEONE FROM CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" MET

SANDY, WE PRAYED FOR HER AND

ARRANGED FOR HER TO HAVE

FREE SURGERY TO CLOSE THE

HOLE IN HER HEART.

AFTER THE OPERATION, WE ALSO

GAVE HER FOLLOWUP CARE AND

MEDICINE.

THE PAIN IN MY CHEST IS

GONE.

AND I DON'T FEEL TIRED.

MY DAUGHTER IS ALIVE!

SHE FEELS GREAT, EVEN WHEN

SHE PLAYS THE WHOLE DAY.

I REALLY THANK GOD FOR CBN.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

HELPING ME.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: EVERY PARENT

LOVES TO SEE THEIR CHILD OUT

PLAYING WITH THEIR FRIENDS,

HAVING FUN, DURING THE

THINGS THAT KIDS DO.

THIS LITTLE GIRL HAD SUCH A

PROBLEM, SHE HAD TO SIT ON

THE SIDELINES ALL OF THE

TIME, BUT ALSO CHRONIC PAIN

BECAUSE OF IT.

HER PARENTS COULD BARELY

AFFORD THE MEDICINE THAT SHE

NEEDED, AND THAT WAS JUST A

STOP-GAP.

YOU STEPPED RIGHT INTO THE

MIDDLE OF THAT HOPELESSNESS,

AND YOU GAVE THIS LITTLE

GIRL THE SURGERY THAT HAS

TOTALLY CURED HER

SITUATION.

TODAY SHE IS HAPPY, FULL OF

LIFE, AND SHE HAS HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

THAT'S THE KIND OF THING

YOU'RE DOING AROUND THE

WORLD.

WE SAY THANK YOU.

AND IT'S ALL WHY WE SAY

PLEASE JOIN WITH US.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A "700

CLUB" MEMBER, GO UP TO THE

NEXT CLUB LEVEL.

IF YOU'RE NOT A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, THIS IS A GREAT DAY

TO JOIN.

IT IS A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE IN NEED ALL AROUND

THE WORLD.

THOUSANDS OF US ARE DOING

THAT.

WE INVITE YOU TO

PARTICIPATE.

WHEN YOU GO TO YOUR PHONE

AND CALL AND SAY, I WANT TO

JOIN "700 CLUB," WOULD YOU

SAY, I WANT TO DO IT USING

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES ALL

OF THE WORK, BUT IT DOES

SAVE US SOME MONEY OR

PROCESSING COSTS, SO WE CAN

PUT MORE OF YOUR MONEY INTO

THE LIVES OF PEOPLE LIKE

SANDY.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU

IS TO SEND YOU "POWER FOR

LIFE" TEACHINGS EVERY

MONTH.

WE BELIEVE THEY WILL BLESS

YOU AND YOU WILL BE BLESSING

SOMEONE ELSE.

GORDON?

Gordon: IN PARTS OF

HONDURAS, A PART-TIME JOB IS

FINDING WATER, AND STRAINING

BUGS OUT OF THE WATER BEFORE

YOU DRINK IT.

Reporter: EVERY DAY,

10-YEAR-OLD KARI CARRIES

WATER HOME WITH HER MOM.

AND SHE TRIES NOT TO THINK

ABOUT WHAT IS IN THE

WATERMENT.

> WATER.

YOU CAN SEE BUGS OR WORMS

SWIMMING IN THE WATER.

IT IS ALWAYS A STRANGE

COLOR.

Reporter: THIS DIRTY

STREAM IS THE ONLY PLACE

KARI HAS TO GET WATER.

HER MOM STRAINS IT TO GET

THE BUGS OUT, BUT IT IS WHAT

THEY CAN'T SEE THAT MAKES

THIS WATER SO DANGEROUS.

I WAS ALWAYS THIRSTY, BUT

I WOULD WAIT UNTIL I

COULDN'T STAND THE THIRST NO

MORE.

SOMETIMES WHEN I DRANK THAT

WATER, MY STOMACH WOULD

REALLY HURT.

I COULDN'T GO OUT TO PLAY

WITH MY FRIEND BECAUSE I WAS

SO SICK.

Reporter: WHEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" LEARNED

THAT NO ONE HERE HAD GOOD

WATER, WE SET UP A

1500-GALLON TANK TO COLLECT

WATER FROM THE STREAM, AND A

PURIFICATION PLANT TO TREAT

IT.

WE THEN RAN PIPES WITH

PURIFIED WATER TO ALL OF

THE

HOMES IN THE VILLAGE.

I WAS SO EXCITED.

I THANKED GOD AND TOLD MY

MOM THAT GOD SENT THE PURE

WATER TO US.

Reporter: TODAY KARI NO

LONGER GETS STOMACH ACHES,

AND SHE LOVES BEING ABLE TO

GRAB A COOL GLASS OF CLEAN

WATER AFTER PLAYING

OUTSIDE.

I AM VERY HAPPY.

NOW WE HAVE GOOD WATER TO

DRINK.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BRINGING THE WATER TO OUR

HOME.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

NEW D.V.D. "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT."

PEOPLE ARE ALREADY TALKING

ABOUT IT, AND WE WANTED YOU

TO HEAR WHAT THEY HAVE TO

SAY.

TAKE A LOOK.

I JUST WATCHED "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT," AND I THOUGHT

IT WAS AMAZING.

IT IS A VERY POWERFUL

VIDEO.

IT REALLY MAKES YOU THINK

ABOUT GOD DELIVERING A

MESSAGE THROUGH DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

IN GORDON'S D.V.D.,

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT," WAS

A GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR ME TO

LOOK AT OUR LIVES, AND THINK

IS IT A LIFE LESSON,

SOMETHING WE'LL GO THROUGH

AND ENDURE.

HEARING THE STORIES OF

OTHER PEOPLE WITH DREAMS AND

VISIONS ENCOURAGED ME.

KNOWING NOW THAT HE

PROVIDES INFORMATION TO

DREAMS, I NEED TO BE A

LITTLE 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: I DON'T KNOW

ABOUT YOU, BUT I AM

CERTAINLY A DREAMER.

IN FACT, I KEEP A JOURNAL

NEXT TO MY BED SO I CAN

RECORD THE DREAMS GOD GIVES

TO ME.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEARN

MORE, WE HAVE THE PERFECT

GIFT FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

IT'S CALLED "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT."

WHAT DO YOUR DREAMS MEAN?

THAT'S THE QUESTION YOU'LL

FIND THE ANSWERS TO IF YOU

GO TO YOUR PHONES AND SAY,

YES, I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH.

THAT WILL TAKE THE GOSPEL TO

THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A CBN

I WANT TO CHALLENGE YOU TO

BASICALLY I'M SAYING THAT

YOUR PLEDGE WILL BE

DOUBLED.

SO, PLEASE, GO TO YOUR

PHONES RIGHT NOW AND MAKE A

HUGE DIFFERENCE.

GORDON?

Gordon: IF YOU'RE A CBN

PARTNER, YOU HAVE THE

OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE THE

LIVES OF PEOPLE YOU HAVE

NEVER EVEN MET.

FOR YEARS A CHINESE PASTOR

PRAYED FOR A WAY TO GIVE HIS

CHILD THE SURGERY SHE

NEEDED, AND THANKS TO PEOPLE

LIKE YOU, THAT PRAYER WAS

ANSWERED.

Terry: EVERY NIGHT MR.

AND MRS. YAN WENT INTO THEIR

DAUGHTER'S ROOM TO PRAY FOR

HER.

THEY ALWAYS THANKED GOD FOR

HER GENTLE SPIRIT AND ASKED

HIM TO PLEASE MAKE A WAY FOR

HER TO WALK NORMALLY.

JA MU HAD A DISLOCATED HIP.

SHE HAD A PROBLEM WHEN

SHE WAS JUST TWO.

SHE COULD NOT WALK RIGHT.

I FIGURED SHE WAS YOUNG AND

IT WOULD EVENTUALLY BE

FINE.

BUT THEN THE DOCTOR DID AN

X-RAY AND SAID MY JAMU

NEEDED SURGERY.

Terry: MR. YAN IS A

PASTOR AND THEY ARE POOR, SO

THEY HAD NO WAY TO PAY FOR

SURGERY.

THE DOCTOR TOLD US IT

WOULD COST $1,000.

WE ONLY HAD $150.

Terry: THEY KNEW

WITHOUT HIP SURGERY, JAMU

WOULD HAVE A ROUGH LIFE

AHEAD.

IF SHE DID NOT GET HELP,

SHE WOULD LIMP HER ENTIRE

LIFE.

IF SHE ALWAYS LIMPED,

PEOPLE WOULD LAUGH AT HER.

NO MATTER HOW WONDERFUL A

PERSON SHE IS OR HAPPY OR

BRAVE, PEOPLE WOULD STILL

REJECT HER.

IT WOULD BE HARD FOR HER TO

GET MARRIED OR FIND A JOB.

Terry: EVEN AT HER

YOUNG AGE, JAMU NEEDED TO

UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH SHE

NEEDED HELP.

WHENEVER I BOUGHT

ANYTHING, EVEN GROCERIES,

JAMU ASKED ME TO PLEASE SAVE

THE MONEY FOR SURGERY

INSTEAD.

I TOLD HER WE BELIEVED THE

LORD WOULD MAKE A WAY FOR

HER.

Terry: THEN A FRIEND

TOLD MR. YAN ABOUT CBN, AND

WE OFFERED TO HELP PAY FOR

JAMU'S HELP SURGERY AND

FOLLOWUP TREATMENTS.

I IMMEDIATELY SAID,

PRAISE THE LORD.

Terry: THE SURGERY WAS

A SUCCESS.

TODAY JAMU CAN WALK AND RUN

BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE.

THE YANS SAY CBN PARTNERS

WERE THE ANSWERS TO ALL OF

THEIR PRAYERS.

EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE FAR

AWAY, OUR HEARTS ARE KNIT

TOGETHER.

YOU DID NOT HESITATE WHEN

THE LORD TOUCHED YOUR HEART

TO HELP THE POOR.

I THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP.

NOW MY DAUGHTER IS HEALTHY.

MAY THE LORD BLESS AND

REWARD YOU.

Gordon: IF YOU'RE A

MEMBER OF "THE 700 CLUB,"

THERE IS A PASTOR IN CHINA

PRAYING FOR YOU BECAUSE OF

WHAT YOU DID, AND HOW YOU

ENABLED HIS LITTLE GIRL TO

GET THE SURGERY THAT THEY

NEEDED.

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, NOW

IS THE TIME TO CALL US.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A PART OF IT.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF

EVERYTHING CBN IS DOING

AROUND THE WORLD.

IT IS JUST $20 A MONTH, 65

CENTS A DAY, AND YOU JOIN

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

THAT WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE, THAT WANT TO

HELP PEOPLE, THAT WANT TO

SEE THE GOSPEL GO AROUND THE

WORLD.

IF THAT'S YOU, CALL US NOW.

WHEN YOU CALL, ASK FOR

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING, WHERE THE BANK DOES

ALL OF THE WORK, AND 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 THAILAND, A

64-YEAR-OLD WIDOW WAS

RAISING A 10-YEAR-OLD CHILD

WHO HAD BEEN ABANDONED.

THEY BOTH WORK ALL DAY, AND

YET THEY CAN BARELY EARN

ENOUGH MONEY FOR FOOD.

SO "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

DECIDED TO GIVE THEM SOME

MUCH-NEEDED HELP.

Reporter: AFTER SCHOOL,

10-YEAR-OLD KIM RUSHES HOME

TO HELP AROUND THE HOUSE.

I LIKE HELPING MY MOM

WITH THE CHORES.

WE CLEAN THE HOUSE, WASH THE

DISHES, AND DO THE LAUNDRY.

WE ALSO READ THE BIBLE

TOGETHER.

Reporter: KIM WAS FOUR

YEARS OLD WHEN HER MOTHER

ABANDONED HER AND A KIND OLD

COUPLE TOOK HER IN.

BUT AFTER HER HUSBAND DIED,

68-YEAR-OLD SANJI HAD TO

START MAKING CHARCOAL BY

HAND.

I WORRY BECAUSE MY MOM

WORKS OUTDOORS ALL DAY AND

SHE GETS VERY TIRED.

Reporter: KIM ALSO

HELPS HER MOM FIND BOTTLES

TO RECYCLE, AND THAT BRINGS

IN A FEW PENNIES.

BUT NO MATTER HOW HARD THEY

TRY, THERE WAS NEVER ENOUGH

TO BUY FOOD.

SO CBN STARTED A FISH FARM

IN THEIR BACKYARD.

WHEN THE FISH MATURE, KIM

AND HER MOM CAN SELL THEM

FOR A PROFIT.

SONJI IS COMPLET COMPLETELY

OUT OF DEBT NOW.

MY NOM DOESN'T HAVE TO

CUT WOOD AND BURN IT TO MAKE

CHARCOAL ANYMORE.

RAISING FISH IS A LOT EASIER

FOR HER.

SHE DOESN'T GET SICK AND SHE

WILL HAVE A LONG LIFE.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR CARING

ABOUT US.

Terry: KIM AND HER MOM

ARE GOING TO HAVE A LONG

LIFE.

THEY'RE GOING TO BE

HEALTHY.

THEY HAVE A MEANS OF

PRODUCING INCOME FOR THEIR

LITTLE FAMILY.

WE SAY THANK YOU.

THAT'S THE KIND OF THING

YOU'RE DOING AROUND THE

WORLD.

YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT A

HANDOUT.

IT IS A HAND UP.

IT IS SOMEONE COMING AND

SAYING, WE SEE YOU.

WE CARE ABOUT YOU.

WE'RE BRINGING YOU THE GIFT

OF HOPE.

HOW CAN YOU PUT A PRICE TAG

ON THAT?

ONE OF THE WAYS YOU CAN HELP

DO IT, THOUGH, IS TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIG

CHALLENGE.

$175,000.

SO CALL US, PLEASE.

Gordon: $40,000, AND

PHONES.

Wendy: THANK YOU, YOU

NEW YORKER, YOU.

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT.

> IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,

JOSEPH AND DANIEL OFTEN

INTERPRETED OTHER PEOPLE'S

DREAMS AND VISIONS.

THAT'S NOT JUST FOR PEOPLE

IN THE BIBLE.

YOU CAN HELP INTERPRET YOUR

OWN DREAMS.

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

OF THE NIGHT."

HERE IS A QUICK PREVIEW WITH

AUTHOR JANE HAMMOND.

NOT EVERY DREAM IS FROM

THE LORD, AND NEITHER IS

EVERY NIGHTMARE FROM THE

DEVIL.

WHEN I WAS 18 YEARS OLD, I

HAD A DREAM ONE NIGHT THAT

WAS A LIFE-CHANGING DREAM

FOR ME.

THAT REALLY PUT ME ON A

JOURNEY TO BEGIN STUDYING

DREAMS FROM A BIBLICAL

PERSPECTIVE.

I WAS BLOWN AWAY BY THAT.

BUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE

OLD TESTAMENT, EVEN TO THE

NEW TESTAMENT, EVEN TO THE

BOOK OF REVELATION, GOD HAS

BEEN SPEAKING TO PEOPLE

THROUGH DREAMS AND VISIONS.

IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER, IF

GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU, THEN

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO

LEARN TO DISCERN THE VOICE

OF GOD.

Wendy: JANE IS RIGHT,

IT IS AN EXCITING JOURNEY TO

LEARN TO LISTEN TO THE VOICE

OF THE LORD AND TO

UNDERSTAND WHAT HE IS SAYING

TO YOU IN YOUR DREAMS.

WE WANT TO HELP YOU WITH

THAT WITH "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT."

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU CALL RIGHT NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

OR LOG ON TO cbn.com AND

JUST SAY YES.

GORDON?

Gordon: ALL OVER THE

WORLD, CBN MEDICAL TEAMS ARE

PROVIDING FREE MEDICINE AND

SURGERY FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN'T

AFFORD IT.

AS YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE,

THEY'VE TREATED PATIENTS IN

SOME UNUSUAL PLACES.

Reporter: IN THE

AFTERMATH OF A TYPHOON THAT

RIPPED THROUGH THE

PHILIPPINES LATE LAST YEAR,

THEY STRUGGLED TO FIND

MEDICAL HELP FOR THEIR

3-MONTH-OLD DAUGHTER.

SHE WAS STRUGGLING TO

BREATHE.

SO THEY RODE FIVE HOURS BY

MOTORCYCLE TO FIND THE CBN

DISASTER TEAM.

WE JUST TOOK A CHANCE.

Reporter: A FLAT TIRE

HAD DELAYED THE TEAM'S

ARRIVAL, SO ACER AND HIS

FAMILY WENT LOOKING FOR

THEM.

SOON THEY FOUND THE TEAM A

FEW MILES DOWN THE ROAD,

CHANGING THE TIRE.

THERE ON THE SIDE OF THE

ROAD, CBN'S DR. SHEILA

EXAMINED BABY HANNAH AND

TOLD THE COUPLE SHE HAD

PNEUMONIA.

THEY QUICKLY GAVE HER AN

ANTIBIOTIC.

THAT ROADSIDE CARE SAVED

BABY HANNAH'S LIFE.

IT IS GOOD WE SAW HER.

SHE COULD HAVE DIED FROM

THIS IF SHE HAD NOT RECEIVED

TREATMENT IN TIME.

Reporter: AND IN

ADDITIONAL TO MEDICAL CARE,

WE GAVE THE COUPLE SOME FOOD

FOR THE JOURNEY HOME.

THANKS FOR SAVING OUR

BABY'S LIFE.

Gordon: YOU'RE PART OF

IT ALL WHEN YOU JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

YOU CAN BE A PART OF SAVING

PEOPLE, PROVIDING FREE

MEDICAL CARE, PROVIDING

FRESH WATER, TAKING CARE OF

ORPHANS, TAKING CARE OF

WIDOWS, AND SEEING THE

GOSPEL PREACHED AROUND THE

WORLD.

ALL POSSIBLE BECAUSE PEOPLE

LIKE YOU CARE ENOUGH TO

GIVE.

IF I CAN GET THE RED NUMBER

UP -- IT'S GOING DOWN, BUT

WE'RE AT $17,000 LEFT ON A

$175,000 CHALLENGE.

WE DON'T WANT TO FALL SHORT

ON THIS.

WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

THREE MINUTES AND 15 SECONDS

ON THE CLOCK.

GO TO THE PHONE AND CALL

US.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: IN THE WESTERN

WORLD, POLIO HAS BEEN

ERADICATED.

IN SOME THIRD WORLD

COUNTRIES, MANY PEOPLE ARE

STILL BEING CRIPPLED BY THE

DISEASE.

LIKE THIS WOMAN IN LAOS, WHO

HASN'T WALKED IN MORE THAN

30 YEARS.

Reporter: 34-YEAR-OLD

PINKIO CONTRACTED POLIO WHEN

SHE WAS A CHILD, AND HAS

NEVER BEEN ABLE TO WALK.

HER SISTER HAS LOOKED AFTER

HER SINCE THEY WERE VERY

YOUNG.

WHEN OUR PARENTS DIED IN

THE WAR, WE HAD TO BEG FOR

FOOD FROM RELATIVES.

WE WERE OFTEN VERY HUNGRY,

EVEN STARVING AT TIMES.

Reporter: BECAUSE OF

HER DISABILITY, SHE NEVER

WENT TO SCHOOL.

BUT SHE DID LEARN HOW TO

WEAVE.

BUT WITH THAT SKILL, SHE

DIDN'T EARN MUCH TO HELP HER

SISTER'S FAMILY TO BUY

FOOD.

THE FEW SKIRTS I MADE ARE

SOLD AT A VERY LOW PRICE.

Reporter: SHE KNEW IF

SHE HAD HER OWN LOOM AND ONE

OTHER ITEM, SHE COULD DO

MUCH BETTER.

IF I HAD SILK THREAD, I

COULD SELL THEM FOR MUCH

MORE.

Reporter: CBN GAVE

PINKIO HER OWN LOOM AND LOTS

OF SILK TO EXPAND HER

BUSINESS.

OVER NIGHT, WORD GOU OUT

ABOUT HER BEAUTIFUL

CREATIONS, AND SHE IS MAKE

MORE THAN EVER.

PINKIO EARNED FIVE TIMES

WHAT SHE USED TO MAKE WHEN

SHE USED THE OLD LOOM AND

THREAD.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR

HELPING ME.

I WISH YOU THE BEST, GOOD

HEALTH AND A GOOD FUTURE.

Terry: I AM SO TOUCHED

BY THE STEADFASTNESS AND

DETERMINATION OF PEOPLE IN

NEED THAT I MEET AROUND THE

WORLD.

WHAT A BLESSING IT IS TO BE

ABLE TO BRING HOPE TO THEM

THROUGH YOUR GENEROSITY AND

KINDNESS.

SHE WAS A HARD-WORKING

WOMAN, HAD A VISION, JUST

DIDN'T HAVE THE MEANS TO

MAKE IT COME TO PASS.

THEN YOU STEPPED RIGHT IN

THE MIDDLE OF THAT AND SAID,

WE WANT TO HELP YOU AND

PARTNER WITH THIS.

TOGETHER WE ALL PARTNER WITH

PEOPLE IN NEED AROUND THE

WORLD.

SO, PLEASE, CALL NOW.

WENDY?

Wendy: THANKS, TERRY.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A DREAM

THAT FELT LIKE A MESSAGE

FROM GOD?

IN OUR NEW D.V.D. "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT," GORDON

EXPLAINS WHAT TO DO WHEN

THAT HAPPENS, AND HE EXPEEX

SPEAKS FROM HIS OWN

EXPERIENCE.

Gordon: I HAD A DREAM

AND IT WAS A NIGHTMARE KIND

OF DREAM.

I WAS WITH JESUS, AND I KNEW

IT WAS THE END OF THE AGE.

HERE I AM ON A LEDGE

OVERLOOKING A VERY DARK

PIT.

AND THERE WERE ALL OF THESE

ASIAN FACES LINED UP IN A

ROW.

MORE THAN I COULD NUMBER.

AND THEY POINTED TO ME, AND

SAID, IF YOU HAD COME, I

WOULD HAVE BELIEVED.

WELL, FROM THAT DREAM I WOKE

UP IN A COLD SWEAT, AND I

KNEW I COULDN'T PRACTICE LAW

ANYMORE.

Gordon: IF I CAN GET

THE RED NUMBER UP, WE'VE GOT

$6,000 LEFT.

THIS IS GOING TO BE A

SQUEAKER.

NORTH CAROLINA, A 2500 LEVEL

DOUBLING TO FOUNDER,

$5,000.

WE'RE COUNTING DOWN TO

VICTORY.

WE'RE GOING TO COUNT

EVERYTHING THAT IS ON THE

PHONES RIGHT NOW.

WE HAVE 125 PHONES BUSY.

AND WE'RE WAITING ON A RED

NUMBER.

Terry: COME ON,

NUMBER.

COME ON.

Gordon: COME ON.

COME ON.

ALL RIGHT, WE'RE GOING TO

COUNT EVERYTHING ON THE

PHONES, DECLARE VICTORY ON

THIS ONE.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM ACTS 20:

"REMEMBER THE WORDS OF THE

LORD JESUS, THAT HE SAID IT

IS MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THAN

IT IS TO RECEIVE."

WE HAD $175,000 CHALLENGE,

AND AGAINST IT YOU GAVE

$180,000!
