The 700 Club - January 19, 2017

When Shavon had to quit her high-paying job due to health reasons, she and her husband Mike soon found themselves $30,000 in debt. They learned a valuable strategy, and the unexpected starting happening. This financial strategy can help you too. Read Transcript

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

TOMORROW DONALD TRUMP WILL

BE SWORN IN AS THE NEXT

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

AND THE NEW REPUBLICAN

CONGRESS IS ALREADY TAKEN

OFFICE, AND THEY'RE READY

TO WORK WITH THE PRESIDENT

ON HIS TOP PRIORITIES.

Terry: THOSE ISSUES

INCLUDE REPEALING AND

REPLACING OBAMACARE,

STRENGTHENING THE ECONOMY,

AND REBUILDING THE

MILITARY.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US THAT STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: THE 115th

CONGRESS IS OFFICIALLY IN

SESSION.

WHILE ONE SIDE PICKS UP

THE PIECES FROM A BRUTAL

DEFEAT.

I BELIEVE THE DEMOCRATS

MUST TAKE A HARD LOOK AT

WHAT WE CAN DO BETTER.

Reporter: REPUBLICANS

HAVE HIT THE GROUND

RUNNING, PREPARING TO TAKE

FULL ADVANTAGE OF THEIR

THREE-BRIDGE LEAD.

THE TOP OF THE

CONSERVATIVE PRIORITY LIST

IS REPEALING OBAMACARE,

BUDGET RESOLUTIONS THAT

DISMANTEL THE ACT HAVE

ALREADY PASSED BOTH THE

HOUSE AND SENATE, BUT NOT

ALL REPUBLICANS SUPPORTED

THEM.

SENATOR RAND PAUL, ONE OF

THE FEW WHO VOTED AGAINST

PARTY LINES, SAYS HE IS IN

FAVOR OF REPEALING THE LAW

AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, BUT

NOT IF IT ADDS $9 TRILLION

TO THE DEBT.

MY POINT TO THEM WAS

WHY DON'T WE INTRODUCE A

BUDGET THAT ACTUALLY

BALANCES.

MY HOPE IS AT THE SAME

TIME WE REPEAL OBAMACARE

IS TO HAVE A SEPARATE VOTE

ON REPLACING OBAMACARE.

Reporter: ANOTHER

PRESSING MATTER: BOOSTING

THE MILITARY.

WE NEED TO REBUILD OUR

MILITARY.

IT IS IN VERY BAD SHAPE.

IT HAS BEEN CUT BY 21%,

WHILE OTHER ADVERSARIES

HAVE INCREASED THEIR

CAPABILITIES TO THE POINT

WHERE THEY'RE CLOSING THE

GAP BETWEEN OURSELVES AND

THEM.

Reporter: BOTH

PARTIES IN THE HOUSE AND

SENATE SHOW DISCONTENT

WITH THE UNITED NATIONS'

LATEST RESOLUTION AGAINST

ISRAEL.

WE NEED TO STAND BEHIND

OUR FRIENDS IN ISRAEL WHO

PRACTICE DEMOCRACY, NOT

TERRORISM.

Reporter: AS A

RESPONSE, SENATOR LINDSEY

GRAHAM, WHO OVERSEES

FOREIGN OPERATIONS, WANTS

TO CUT FUNDING TO THE U.N.

U.S. TAXPAYERS COVER MORE

THAN A FIFTH OF THAT

ANNUAL BUDGET.

IT WENT UP TWO MONTHS

AGO.

AND I SAID, IF IN THE LAST

DAYS OF THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION YOU PASS A

RESOLUTION CONDEMNING

ISRAEL FOR THEIR

SETTLEMENT POLICIES, THEN

YOU'RE GOING TO RUN AFOWL

OF SENATOR GRAHAM.

Reporter: SENATOR

GRAHAM CAN BE A HARSH

CRITIC OF THE

PRESIDENT-ELECT, BUT IS

SUPPORTIVE OF TRUMP'S

PROMPTPROMISES FOR REFORM.

IF HE WANTS TO REFORM

THE TAX CODE, COUNT ME IN.

IF HE'S GOING TO LOOK FOR

PRO-LIFE JUDGES TO PUT ON

THE SUPREME COURT, COUNT

ME IN.

Reporter: REPORTING

FROM CAPITOL HILL, ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: TOMORROW

WE'LL HAVE A SPECIAL

INAUGURATION EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB," AND WE'LL

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE

PRESIDENT-ELECT'S TOP

CABINET PICKS AND THE

AGENDA FOR HIS FIRST 100

DAYS.

THAT'S ON TOMORROW'S "700

CLUB."

> IN OTHER NEWS, IT

LOOKS LIKE THE

PRESIDENT-ELECT IS GOING

TO GET RIGHT TO WORK

DURING HIS FIRST DAY IN

OFFICE.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN

NEWSROOM.

Efrem: GORDON, DONALD

TRUMP IS SET TO HAND DOWN

AS MANY AS FIVE NEW

EXECUTIVE ORDERS TOMORROW,

THE SAME DAY HE TAKES THE

OATH OF OFFICE.

THAT IS THE WORD FROM

TRUMP'S TRANSITION TEAM.

TRUMP HAS SAID HE WANTS TO

OVERTURN A WIDE VARIETY OF

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

EXECUTIVE ORDER, INCLUDING

THOSE ON ILLEGAL

IMMIGRATION, GUN CONTROL,

AND RELOIP RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.

> DONALD TRUMP'S NOMINEE

TO BE THE AMBASSADOR TO

THE UNITED NATIONS

SUPPORTS MOVING THE U.S.

EMBASSY IN ISRAEL FROM TEL

AVIV TO JERUSALEM.

TRUMP PROMISED TO MAKE

THAT MOVE DURING THE

PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.

NIKKI HALEY TOLD SENATE

FOREIGN RELATIONS

COMMITTEE MEMBERS SHE,

QUOTE, "ABSOLUTELY BACKS

THE MOVE."

AND SHE BLASTED THE U.N.

FOR ITS ATTACKS ON THE

JEWISH STATE.

NOWHERE HAS THE U.N.'S

FAILURE BEEN MORE

CONSISTENT AND MORE

OUTRAGEOUS THAN IT IS --

THAN ITS BIAS AGAINST OUR

CLOSE ALLY, ISRAEL.

Efrem: A SPOKESPERSON

FOR JORDAN RECENTLY TOLD

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS THE

MOVE WOULD, QUOTE, "IN

FLAME THE ISLAMIC AND ARAB

STREETS."

HALEY ALSO SAID SHE WOULD

NEVER LET THE U.N. SUPPORT

AN INTERNATIONAL

ENVIRONMENT THAT

ENCOURAGES THE BOYCOTTING

OF ISRAEL.

GORDON?

Gordon: IT HAS BEEN

AN INTERESTING TIME WITH

THESE VARIOUS CANDIDATES

FOR CABINET POSITIONS, BUT

I REALLY APPLAUD WHAT

GOVERNOR HALEY IS SAYING.

WE NEED TO REALIZE THAT

THE STREETS IN THE MIDDLE

EAST ARE ALREADY INFLAMED.

AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO

WITH ISRAEL.

IT HAS TO DO WITH CIVIL

WAR IN SYRIA, CONTINUING

UNREST IN IRAQ, THE RISE

OF RADICAL ISLAM IN THE

FORM OF ISIS, AND ALL OF

THIS, AND ALL OF THE

DIPLOMATIC HISTORY OF THE

PAST EIGHT YEARS, ALL IT

HAS DONE IS EMBOLDEN THE

BOYCOTT DIVESTMENT

SANCTION MOVEMENT.

AND IT IS ABOUT TIME WE

SUPPORT ISRAEL AND SAY,

WE'RE NOT BACKING OFF OF

THAT.

WHEN YOU'RE NOT WILLING TO

RECOGNIZE ISRAEL'S RIGHT

TO EXIST, WELL, YOU HAVE

NO PLACE IN THE

NEGOTIATION TABLE.

> WE'LL BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

AFTER THIS.

Gordon: SHANTO RAY

Gordon: SHANTO RAY

STARTED OUT WITH AN

ENTRY-LEVEL JOB, MAKING

JUST $9 AN HOUR.

TODAY SHE OWNS A

MULTI-MILLION REAL ESTATE

BUSINESS, SHE IS LIVING

HER DREAM, AND WELL ON HER

WAY TO HER ULTIMATE GOAL,

WHICH IS GIVING AWAY 90%

OF HER INCOME.

Reporter: MEET

SHANTELLE RAY.

SHE IS THE SKILL BEHIND A

MULTI-MILLION REAL ESTATE

COMPANY, A COMPANY THAT

HAS BEEN NAMED AS ONE OF

THE FASTEST GROWING IN

AMERICA.

TO DATE, SHE HAS 130

EMPLOYEES AND FIVE

LOCATIONS.

WE ARE GROWING AT ABOUT

35% TO 40% EVERY SINGLE

YEAR WE'VE BEEN IN

BUSINESS.

SO IT HAS REALLY BEEN

EXCITING.

Reporter: YEARS AGO,

SHANTTELLE WAS STRUGGLING.

I WAS A YOUTH PASTOR

AND I MATE $9 AN HOUR FOR

ONLY 20 HOURS A WEEK, BUT

I WORKED LIKE 60 HOURS A

WEEK.

I WAS PUTTING LITERALLY

GROCERIES ON MY CREDIT

CARD AT THAT TIME.

Reporter: AFTER

SEVERAL YEARS OF CHARGING

HER LIVING EXPENSES AND

ONLY PAYING MINIMUM

PAYMENTS, SHE WAS $10,000

IN DEBT AND MAXED OUT ON

CREDIT.

THAT'S WHEN I REALLY

STARTED TO PANIC BECAUSE I

COULDN'T USE MY CREDIT

CARD FOR GAS AND GROCERIES

AND THINGS THAT I NEEDED.

Reporter: DURING THIS

DIFFICULT TIME, SHE HEARD

A MESSAGE AT CHURCH ON THE

BIBLICAL PRINCIPLE OF

TITHING.

MY IMMEDIATE ACTION

WHEN THEY TALKED ABOUT

TITHING, WAS, LIKE, I JUST

CANT DO IT RIGHCAN'T DO IT RIGHT NOW.

MAYBE WHEN I MAKE MORE

MONEY, THAT MAKES SENSE.

Reporter: BUT SHE WAS

DESPERATE ENOUGH TO TRY

TITHING.

I FINALLY GOT TO THE

PLACE WHERE I WAS, LIKE,

OKAY, GOD, I'M GOING TO GO

ALL OUT AND TEST YOU TO

SEE IF YOU ARE REALLY TRUE

IN THIS AREA.

Reporter: THE NEXT

SUNDAY, AS SHE WAS GETTING

READY FOR CHURCH, SHE

WROTE A $30 CHECK FOR THE

OFFERING.

I WAS, LIKE, PLEASE,

GOD, LET THIS GO THROUGH

BECAUSE I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW

WHAT THE BALANCE WAS AT

THAT TIME.

BUT YOU SAID TEST ME IN

THIS, SO I'M GOING TO TRY

IT.

Reporter: THE VERY

NEXT TODAY, SHE RECEIVED A

$300 REFUND CHECK FROM HER

UTILITY COMPANY.

I WAS LIKE, WOW, GOD

REALLY DID PROVIDE.

Reporter: IT WASN'T

LONG BEFORE SHE RECEIVED

ANOTHER FINANCIAL

BREAKTHROUGH.

I WAS TALKING THE MY

AUNT A FEW DAYS LATER, AND

SHE SAID, I JUST DECIDED I

WANT TO PAY OFF THAT

$10,000 CREDIT CARD.

Reporter: WHILE

LISTENING TO A PODCAST

ABOUT TITHING 90%, SHE

FELT GOD WAS TELLING HER

TO DO THE SAME.

I WAS THINKING, I JUST

MADE THE COMMITMENT TO

START TITHING, AND NOW YOU

WANT ME TO GIVE 90% AWAY?

I SAID, GOD, IF THIS IS

WHAT YOU'RE LAYING ON MY

HEART, I'M GOING TO DO IT.

I'M GOING TO INCREASE MY

TITHE BY 3% EVERY YEAR.

Reporter: SIX MONTHS

LATER, SHANTELLE RECEIVED

A JOB OFFER THAT DOUBLED

HER INCOME.

AND THEN IN 2005, HER

INCOME HAD ANOTHER

DRAMATIC INCREASE WHEN HE

LAUNCHED A CAREER IN REAL

ESTATE.

I SOLD MORE HOUSES IN

HAMPTON RHODES THAN ANYONE

ELSE.

AND EVERYONE JUST REFERRED

ME BUSINESS.

IT WAS SUCH A BLESSING.

Reporter: THE REST OF

HER SUCCESS STORY CAN BE

READ IN THE BOTTOM LINE OF

HER OWN REAL ESTATE

COMPANY, LAUNCHED IN 2012.

THERE IS A FIRST IN 1

SAMUEL 3: 20, THAT SAYS,

"THOSE WHO HONOR ME, I

WILL HONOR."

IT IS REALLY A MATTER OF

REAPING AND SOWING.

AND WE KEEP GIVING AND HE

KEEPS GIVING BACK.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

PROMISE FOR YOU FROM

MATTHEW 25, AND THESE ARE

THE WORDS OF JESUS: "TO

THOSE WHO USE WELL, WOULD

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."

AND SHANTELLE STARTED

SAYING, I'M GOING TO DO

THAT.

I'M GOING TO START USING

WELL WHAT I'VE BEEN GIVEN.

AND WHEN SHE DID THAT,

THEN THE BLESSINGS

HAPPENED.

THE SAME THING WILL HAPPEN

TO YOU.

THIS ISN'T SOME GET-RICH

QUICK SCHEME, BUT IT IS A

LAW.

WE CALL IT THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

THE LAW IN THE KINGDOM OF

GOD.

IT SEEMS

COUNTER-INTUITIVE.

IT SEEMS LIKE, WHEN I HAVE

EVERYTHING TOGETHER, THEN

I CAN START GIVING.

THAT'S NOT THE WAY THE LAW

WORKS.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

THAT'S WHAT JESUS SAID.

YOU HAVE TO PUT IT IN

MOTION.

AND WHEN SHANTELLE PUT IT

IN MOTION, THAT'S WHEN THE

BLESSINGS CAME.

> WELL, WHEN MIKE'S

SMALL BUSINESS SLOWED

DOWN, HIS SALARY

PLUMMETTED.

HE LOST THOUSANDS OF

DOLLARS.

BUT MIKE AND HIS WIFE HAD

AN UNUSUAL WAY TO DEAL

WITH THE SHORTFALL.

AND WITHIN A FEW MONTHS,

THEY GOT THEIR MONEY BACK

AND MUCH MORE.

Reporter: SINCE 1971,

MIKE AND LADEL BRIERY HAVE

SUPPORTED CBN.

MIKE HAD HIS OWN BUSINESS

SELLING INSURANCE, AND

SUDDENLY PEOPLE STARTED

CANCELLING THEIR POLICIES.

IT DROPPED OUR INCOME

ABOUT $2,000 A MONTH,

WHICH IS VERY SUBSTANTIAL.

BECAUSE, LIKE MOST PEOPLE,

WE STILL HAVE HOUSE

PAYMENTS, WE HAD CAR

PAYMENTS, WE HAD OUR

MONTHLY OBLIGATIONS OF

INSURANCE AND THE LIGHT

BILL.

WE HAD ALL OF THAT.

IT WAS SCARY.

I REALLY HAD TO FIGHT THE

NEGATIVE THOUGHTS IN MY

MIND.

YOU AREN'T GOING TO MAKE

IT.

YOU WON'T MAKE THE PLEDGE.

YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE

EVERYTHING.

IT'S LIKE THIS: YOU'VE

GOT DOUBT AND YOU'VE GOT

THE ANSWER.

WHICH ONE ARE YOU GOING TO

CHOOSE?

I CHOOSE THE ANSWER.

Reporter: MIKE AND

LADEL HONORED THEIR PLEDGE

TO CBN, AND A SHORT TIME

LATER, MIKE GOT A SURPRISE

PHONE CALM.

CALL.

HE INHERITED A SMALL TRACT

OF LAND A FEW YEARS EARLY,

AND NOW AN OIL COMPANY

WANTED TO BUY THE RIGHTS

TO IT.

AND THEN THEY GOT AN OFFER

ON A PROPERTY THEY WERE

TRYING TO SELL FOR YEARS.

IN A FOUR MONTH PERIOD,

GOD SUPPLIED OVER A HALF

MILLION DOLLARS.

OUR MOUTHS WERE JUST

OPENED.

WE WERE JUST STUNNED.

WE WERE SO EXCITED.

BUT WE CAN JUST AMAZED AT

WHAT GOD WAS DOING IN OUR

LIVES.

Reporter: NOT ONLY

DID THE MONEY COVER THEIR

PLEDGE, IT ALSO RESTORED

THEIR FINANCES.

AND THE MATERIAL WORLD,

YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN IT.

BUT IF YOU'RE A CHILD OF

GOD AND YOU HAVE THE

CONFIDENCE THAT HE IS

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF YOU,

YOU JUST KNOW THAT YOU

KNOW.

HE IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE

THERE FOR YOU.

HE IS ALWAYS GOING TO HELP

YOU.

HE'S GOING TO ALWAYS

GIVE BACK MORE TO YOU THAN

WHAT YOU GIVE TO HIM.

Reporter: SINCE THEN,

THEY'VE GIVEN ABOVE AND

BEYOND THEIR PLEDGE.

THEY SAY GIVING IS MORE

THAN A RESPONSIBILITY:

IT'S A PRIVILEGE.

I HAVE TO DO FOR HIM, I

HAVE TO GIVE BACK TO HIM.

MY OBLIGATION TO GOD IS

TO SHARE FROM OTHER PEOPLE

WHAT GOD CAN DO.

Gordon: "IT IS

POSSIBLE TO GIVE AWAY AND

BECOME RICHER.

IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO

HOLD ON TOO TIGHTLY AND

LOSE EVERYTHING.

YES, THE LIBERAL MAN SHALL

BE RICH.

BY WATERING OTHERS, HE

WATERS HIMSELF."

HERE IS MIKE AND LADEL,

AND THINGS ARE LOOKING

BAD, AND THEY SAY NO.

GOD HAS OUR FUTURE.

HE WILL PROVIDE WHAT WE

NEED IF WE LIVE FOR HIM

AND MAKE THE KINGDOM OF

GOD OUR FIRST CONCERN.

IF YOU DO THAT, THE SAME

THING WILL HAPPEN TO YOU.

AND IT'S NOT A ONE-TIME

THING.

IT IS NOT AN ON AND OFF

THING.

WHEN YOU DO IT

CONSISTENTLY, THAT'S WHEN

THE BLESSINGS HAPPEN.

> I'VE GOT SOME GREAT

NEWS.

SOME PARTNERS IN TEXAS AND

SOUTH CAROLINA ARE JOINING

TOGETHER AND THEY WANT TO

CHALLENGE OTHERS TO GIVE.

THEY LOVE GIVING AND THEY

WANT OTHERS TO ENJOY IT.

THEY'RE CHALLENGING YOU BY

MATCHING YOUR DONATIONS,

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, TO

$125,000.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST ASK FOR

BLESSING FOR THE PARTNERS

FROM SOUTH CAROLINA AND

TEXAS, WHO MADE IT

POSSIBLE TO ISSUE THIS

CHALLENGE.

YOUR WORD OVER THEM WILL

BE TRUE.

YOU WILL OPEN THE WINDOWS

OF HEAVEN AND POUR OUT

BLESSINGS OVER THEM.

AND FOR THOSE WATCHING,

MAKING DECISIONS, JUST BE

WITH THEM AND ENCOURAGE

THEM.

BLESS THEM, LORD GOD, FOR

WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, $125,000 ON

THE CHALLENGE.

Terry: WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," WE WANT TO

SAY THANK YOU WITH

SOMETHING WE THINK WILL

HELP YOUR FINANCES AND

LITERALLY EVERY OTHER PART

OF YOUR LIFE.

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON'S

TEACHING "THE SECRET

KINGDOM" AND GORDON'S

TEACHINGS "THE LAW OF

EXPECTATION."

TAKE A LOOK.

Gordon: YEARS AGO, MY

FATHER HAD A GREAT

REVELATION: IF JESUS WAS

GOD, THEN EVERYTHING HE

SAID WAS THE LAW OF THE

UNIVERSE.

Pat: AND IT APPLIES

TO EVERYBODY.

IT APPLIES TO CHRISTIANS.

IT APPLIES TO NONE

CHRISTIANS.

Gordon: THESE

SPIRITUAL LAWS WERE THE

FOUNDATION OF HIS

BEST-SELLING BOOK, "THE

SECRET KINGDOM."

Gordon: WE HAVE

COMPILED THOSE TEACHINGS

ON THIS D.V.D. FOR YOU, AS

WELL AS MY TEACHING CALLED

"THE LAW OF EXPECTATION",

WHICH WAS INSPIRED BY THE

LAWS OF "THE SECRET

KINGDOM."

WHAT YOU EXPECT THE FUTURE

TO BE, YOU CAN CAUSE IT TO

BE, JUST MERELY BY THE

FACT THAT YOU BELIEVE IT.

Announcer: NOW FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN ONE

D.V.D., "THE SECRET

KINGDOM" AND "THE LAW OF

EXPECTATION."

Terry: THERE ARE

PRINCIPLES AT WORK IN OUR

WORLD, AND PAT OUTLINES

ALL OF THAT IN "THE SECRET

KINGDOM."

IT WAS HIS "NEW YORK

TIMES"' BEST-SELLING BOOK.

IT IS ALL HERE FOR THE

FIRST TIME COMPILED

TOGETHER, ALONG WITH

GORDON'S TEACHING ON THE

"THE LAW OF EXPECTATION."

IT IS OUR WAY OF SAYING

THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT

OTHER PEOPLE.

CALL AND JOIN RIGHT NOW.

HERE IS THE GREAT THING:

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CHALLENGE.

THAT MEANS THAT EVERY

DOLLAR THAT YOU PLEDGE

DOLLAR, SO THAT YOUR

GIVING RIGHT NOW GOES

TWICE AS FAR.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE:

1-800-700-7000.

YOU CALL NOW.

AND SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

AND WHEN YOU DO, WE'RE

GOING TO SEND YOU "THE

SECRET KINGDOM" AND "THE

LAW OF EXPECTATION."

YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE THIS.

Gordon: A YEAR AGO,

SHAVON MARTIN WAS OUT OF

WORK AND $30,000 IN DEBT.

SO SHE AND HER HUSBAND

MADE AN INVESTMENT, AND

JUST THREE MONTHS LATER

THEY WERE COMPLETELY

DEBT-FREE.

HERE IS WHAT THEY DID AND

HOW THEIR FINANCIAL PLAN

CAN WORK FOR YOU.

Reporter: SHAVON

MARTIN NEW SHE HAD TO QUIT

HER JOB.

26 YEARS OF WORK-RELATED

STRESS THAT TAKEN A TOLL

ON HER HEALTH.

I WAS GOING THROUGH A

TURBULENT TIME OF MY JOB.

I WAS A VICE PRESIDENT ON

PARK AVENUE AT A MAJOR

BANK.

I WAS GOING THROUGH SORT

OF A MID-LIFE CRISIS, AND

I WAS VERY DEPRESSED.

Reporter: AFTER A FEW

MONTHS OFTEN AND SOME

MUCH-NEEDED REST, SHAVON

WAS READY TO WORK AGAIN.

BUT FINDING A NEW JOB

WASN'T EASY.

AND THE CREDIT CARD BILLS

BEGAN TO PILE UP.

WE WERE SORT OF IN A

BAD SPOT, ACTUALLY.

AND IT WAS, YOU KNOW,

SCARY FOR MY HUSBAND.

THERE WAS A DAY OR TWO

WHERE SHE SAID, YOU KNOW

HOW MUCH DEBT WE HAVE?

AND THAT WAS A SHOCKER FOR

ME.

Reporter: THEY WERE

SOON $30 O ,000 IN TH30,000 IN DEBT.

ERIC WAS WORKING, BUT HE

DIDN'T MAKE ENOUGH TO

COVER THEIR HUGE DEBT.

I WAS GETTING MORE AND

MORE PANICKED, NO ONE IS

GOING TO HIRE ME.

Reporter: STILL OUT

OF WORK, SHE WOULD WATCH

TV.

WHILE I WAS UNEMPLOYED,

I WOULD WATCH "THE 700

CLUB."

THERE ARE VERY FEW THINGS

TO WATCH, AS MOST PEOPLE

KNOW, DURING THE DAY THAT

ARE UPLIFTING AND

POSITIVE.

IT WAS SORT OF A BRIGHT

SPOT IN MY DAY.

I WOULD LISTEN TO THE

PEOPLE'S TESTIMONY, AND

THEY WERE SO POSITIVE, I

THOUGHT, WOW, THAT'S SO

INTERESTING.

Reporter: SHAVON

LEARNED ABOUT TITHING AND

HOW GOD BLESSES THOSE WHO

GIVE TO OTHERS.

IT TAUGHT ME FAITH, NOT

TO TRUST IN MONEY, BUT TO

TRUST INE IN GOD, THAT HE WILL

TAKE CARE OF YOU.

AND IN JANUARY OF 2016, MY

HUSBAND AND I DECIDED TO

START GIVING.

Reporter: THEY

DISARLTEDESTARTED TO GIVE TO THEIR

CHURCH AND TO CBN.

MY HUSBAND'S CONTRACT

WAS INCREASED

UNEXPECTANTLY, AND I GOT A

JOB IN AN AREA OF BANKING

I HADN'T KNOWN PREVIOUSLY.

AND THEN WE GOT A TAX

REFUND WE DID NOT EXPECT

TO RECEIVE.

I THOUGHT WE WOULD GET

A GOOD-SIZED RETURN, BUT

IT WAS BIGGER THAN I

THOUGHT.

ALL OF THIS HAPPENED

WITHIN THREE MONTHS, AND

THAT SET US UP FOR BEING

ABLE TO PAY OFF OUR DEBT

AND MY GETTING MYSELF

ORGANIZED WITH MY LIFE,

TOO.

GOING TO WORK EVERY DAY,

ENJOYING LIFE, EXERCISING,

ADULT, ALL OF THOSE

THINGS.

Reporter: TODAY

SHAVON AND ERIC LIVE ON

THE UPPER EAST SIDE OF

MANHATTAN, AND THEY'RE

PROUD TO BE CBN PARTNERS.

THE BEST MESSAGE I GOT

FROM TITHING IS THAT GOD

CARES FOR US AND HE IS

FAITHFUL IN THIS WORD.

WHEN YOU GIVE 10% BACK TO

GOD, YOU'RE TELLING HIM

THAT YOU BELIEVE THAT

HE'LL TAKE CARE OF YOU.

Gordon: HE WILL TAKE

CARE OF YOU.

AND HERE IS HIS PROMISE.

HE ACTUALLY SAYS TO US,

TEST ME IN THIS.

IT IS FROM MALACHI: "BRING

ALL OF THE TITHES INTO THE

STOREHOUSE THAT THERE MAY

BE FOOD IN MY HOUSE, AND

PROVE ME NOW IN THIS."

SOME TRANSLATIONS SAY

"TEST ME IN THIS."

"IF I WILL NOT OPEN FOR

YOU THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN

AND POUR OUT A BLESSING

THAT THERE WILL NOT BE

ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE

IT."

THAT'S A WONDERFUL PROMISE

AND IT IS FROM GOD ALL

MIGHT SE.

YOU CAN BANK ON IT.

HE SAYS, TEST ME, PROVE

ME.

IF YOU WANT TO START THAT,

GIVE US A CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE

GOSPEL PREACHED AROUND THE

WORLD, JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

THIS IS YOURS WHEN YOU

CALL RIGHT NOW:

1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, WHEN WE

FIRST MET BRIAN, HE WAS

INJURED, HE WAS HOMELESS,

AND TRYING TO SUPPORT HIS

TWO LITTLE GIRLS.

BUT THIS SINGLE DAD'S LIFE

HAS TURNED AROUND

COMPLETELY BECAUSE OF HELP

FROM PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

Reporter: BRIAN AND

HIS TWO DAUGHTERS, PEARL

AND DACEY DAYS DAISY, HAVE

EXPERIENCED HARD TIMES.

THEIR MOTHER LEFT US

WHEN THEY WERE THREE AND

FIVE.

Reporter: SOON AFTER,

BRIAN WAS INJURED ON THE

JOB AND COULD NO LONGER

WORK.

HE COULDN'T MAKE HIS RENT

PAYMENT, AND HIS YOUNG

FAMILY WAS EVICTED FROM

THEIR APARTMENT.

THE CONSENSUS WAS, HEY,

BRIAN, YOU CAN'T DO THIS.

I SAID, I'M NOT GOING TO

LEAVE MY GIRLS BECAUSE

NOBODY GETS LEFT BEHIND.

DADDY IS NOT GOING

ANYWHERE, AM I?

UH-UH.

Reporter: WHILE HIS

DAUGHTERS STAYED WITH

RELATIVES, BRIAN SLEPT

BEHIND GAS STATIONS AND

RODE HIS BIKE AROUND TOWN

LOOKING FOR WORK.

THERE WERE WEEKS WHEN I

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WE WERE

GOING TO DO.

I WAS GETTING PRETTY

DESPERATE.

Reporter: AFTER

MONTHS OF SEARCHING, BRIAN

LANDED A JOB, BUT HE AND

THE GIRLS STILL NEEDED A

PLACE TO LIVE.

WE GOT A CALL FROM A

REFUGE.

IT WAS A BIG LOAD OFF MY

SHOULDERS.

MANY OF THESE FAMILIES,

THEY DON'T HAVE ANYBODY.

Reporter: STEPHANIE

KEK, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF

"RIVER OF REFUGE" IN

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, MET

BRIAN AND HIS DAUGHTERS.

THEY NEED LOVE AND

SUPPORT AND THEY JUST NEED

SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN

THEM.

Reporter: THEY

PROVIDED BRIAN

TRANSITIONAL HOUSING TO

KEEP HIS FAMILY TOGETHER.

AND PEARL AND DAISY GOT

NEW CLOTHES AND SCHOOL

SUPPLIES.

I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT WHERE WE'RE GOING TO

STAY.

THE REST JUST FALLS IN

PLACE.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT

THE HOUSE WOULD PROBABLY

BE THAT MOST OF THE STUFF

WE DIDN'T HAVE TO BUY.

Reporter: CBN HAS

COME ON BOARD WITH "RIVER

OF REFUGE," AND PROVIDED

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO

CONTINUE TO HELP FAMILIES

LIKE BRIAN'S.

CBN HAS BEEN WONDERFUL.

GORDON HAS BEEN A GREAT

SUPPORT.

WE'RE TRYING SO HARD TO

CREATE THIS SAFE HAVEN FOR

THE FAMILIES, TRULY A

REFUGE FOR THEM TO BE

SAFE, FOR THEM TO FEEL

LOVED.

BECAUSE WE'RE GIVEN

THIS LITTLE LEEWAY, AND I

JUST GOT A PROMOTION.

I'M GETTING A RAISE.

SO OUR BLESSINGS ARE

STARTING TO COME IN.

Terry: HOPE, YOU

CAN'T PUT A PRICE TAG ON

THE GIFT OF HOPE.

AND IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, THAT'S WHAT YOU

ARE PUTTING OUT TO THE

WHOLE WORLD.

EVERY PLACE THAT WE TOUCH,

EVERY PERSON WHO'S LIFE IS

IMPACTED, IT IS THE GIFT

OF HOPE AND A VERY

PRACTICAL HAND-UP.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

THIS IS A GREAT TIME TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

THERE IS SO MUCH NEED IN

THE WORLD TODAY, AND WE

ARE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN

THE MIDST OF IT.

LET ME SHOW YOU HOW YOU

CAN DO THAT.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH MAKES YOU A "700

CLUB" MEMBER.

BUT THERE ARE LOTS OF

LEVELS.

YOU CAN GO UP TO "700

CLUB" GOLD AT $40 A MONTH.

IF YOU'RE AT $40 MONTH,

CONSIDER THE THOUSAND

CLUB, WHICH IS $84 A

MONTH.

OUR FOUNDER'S JOIN US AT

$217 A MONTH.

AND WE HAVE A GROUP CALLED

THE CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE

WHICH GIFT US WITH $10,000

OR MORE A YEAR.

ASK GOD WHAT HE WOULD HAVE

YOU DO.

THEN WHEN YOU GO TO YOUR

PHONE NOT WITH JUST THE

> 10-YEAR-OLD LANEY

KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THE

BIBLE.

YET UNTIL RECENTLY, SHE

HAD NEVER BEEN TO CHURCH.

FOR THE PAST YEAR LANEY

HAS BEEN LEARNING ABOUT

GOD ALL BY HERSELF, WITH

HELP FROM CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK."

Reporter: MEET LANEY,

SHE IS A 10-YEAR-OLD

ASPIRING ARTIST.

I LOVE TO DRAW HORSES.

I LOVE TO USE PEOPLE.

Reporter: ONE OF

LANEY'S FAVORITE PEOPLE IS

HER 80-YEAR-OLD NEIGHBOR,

SKIP, WHO IS NEARLY BLIND.

THEY HAVE A VERY SPECIAL

FRIENDSHIP THAT BEGAN WITH

THEIR MUTUAL LOVE FOR

ANIMALS.

THERE IS NOTHING I

WOULD EVEWOULDN'T DO FOR THAT

LITTLE GIRL.

Reporter: AND HE

WANTED LANEY TO KNOW ABOUT

THE MAN WHO DID DIE FOR

HER.

IN SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS

THAT DAY, LANEY AND THE

OTHER CHILDREN WATCHED AN

EPISODE OF "SUPERBOOK."

THE PASTOR NOTICED THAT

LANEY THAT A LOT OF

ANSWERS FOR A GIRL WHO HAD

RARELY BEEN TO CHURCH.

I SAID, LANEY, HOW MANY

TIMES HAVE YOU BEEN TO

CHURCH?

AND SHE SAID, WELL, THIS

IS MY SECOND TIME.

AND I SAID, WELL, I DON'T

UNDERSTAND, HOW DO YOU

KNOW ABOUT THIS?

AND SHE SAID, I LEARNED IT

ALL ON THE "SUPERBOOK"

APP.

I WAS SHOCKED TO FIND

OUT HOW MUCH SHE KNEW

ABOUT THE BIBLE.

Reporter: LANEY

EXPLAINED A YEAR BEFORE A

CLASSMATE SHOWED HER THE

FREE "SUPERBOOK" APP.

AND SHE DOWNLOADED IT ON

TO HER TABLET AND STARTED

PLAYING "SUPERBOOK" GAMES.

THEN SHE RESPONDED TO AN

INVITATION SHE SAW ON THE

APP.

IT SAYS, ARE YOU READY

TO ACCEPT GOD?

AND I SAID YES.

AND IT TOLD ME A PRAYER TO

SAY.

AND SINCE THEN, GOD HAS

ALWAYS BEEN IN MY HEART.

Reporter: LANEY LOOKS

FORWARD TO GOING TO CHURCH

EVERY WEEK WITH SKIP.

HER FAVORITE CHARACTERS

ARE GIZMO AND JOY.

YOU WOULDN'T EXPECT A

LADY TO BE STRONG, BUT SHE

IS REALLY STRONG.

Reporter: SHE SAYS

THE MESSAGES AND STORIES

IN "SUPERBOOK" WILL MAKE A

BIG DIFFERENCE IN LANEY'S

LIFE, AND IN THE LIVES OF

OTHER CHILDREN.

WE'RE ASKING GOD, GOD,

PLEASE BRING YOUR LOVE AND

YOUR LIGHT AND YOUR HOPE

TO THESE LITTLE KIDS, AND

GOD DID THAT FOR LANEY.

Reporter: LANEY WAS

RECENTLY BAPTIZED, AND NOW

SHE TELLS EVERYONE,

INCLUDING HER PARENTS,

ABOUT "SUPERBOOK" AND

JESUS.

I TELL MY MOM AND DAD

THAT IT IS REALLY FUN.

AND IT IS REALLY GOOD FOR

ME TO LEARN ABOUT GOD.

AND I'M SO THANKFUL FOR

THE "SUPERBOOK" APP.

SHE WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN

THE LORD WITHOUT

"SUPERBOOK."

I THINK IT IS THE BEST

THING THAT COULD HAPPEN TO

HER.

Gordon: YOU CAN TAKE

THE STORIES OF THE BIBLE

WORLD.

I KNOW YOU WANT TO JOIN

THIS GROUP OF WONDERFUL

PEOPLE GOING UP AND

STEPPING OUT IN FAITH, SO

GORDON?

Gordon: NOT LONG AGO,

BRIAN WAS SO DEEP IN DEBT,

HE HAD TO CHOOSE WHICH OF

HIS BILLS HE WAS GOING TO

PAY EACH MONTH.

HE WAS DOWN TO HIS LAST

$5.

INSTEAD OF SPENDING IT, HE

USED IT TO HELP PEOPLE WHO

WERE EVEN WORSE OFF THAN

HE WAS.

Reporter: BRIAN BRYCE

WAS MAKING A GOOD LIVING

AS A CHEF IN TEXAS.

BUT NO MATTER HOW MANY

HOURS HE WORKED, THE BILLS

DIDN'T GET PAID BECAUSE

BRIAN'S TOP PRIORITIES

WERE ALCOHOL AND DRUGS.

I WAS A SLAVE TO MY

ADDICTIONS.

THEY WERE IN CONTROL, NOT

ME.

Reporter: SO HE

STARTED BORROWING FROM HIS

BOSS AGAINST HIS PAYCHECK.

ONCE I BORROWED A

LITTLE MONEY FROM THAT

CHECK, I ENDED UP WITH

LESS MONEY ON THE NEXT

ONE.

IT KEPT KIND OF

SNOWBALLING.

IT GOT TO THE POINT WHERE

I WAS DECIDING WHICH OF

THE UTILITIES WERE GOING

TO GET CUT OFF.

THE WATER WAS GETTING SHUT

OFF ON A REGULAR BASIS.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT

WHEN HE FELT LIKE HE

COULDN'T TAKE ANYMORE,

BRIAN BROKE DOWN AND

PRAYED.

I CRIED OUT TO GOD TO

KILL ME.

I ASKED HIM TO TAKE ME

HOME BECAUSE IF THIS WAS

MY LIFE, I DIDN'T WANT TO

BE HERE.

AS I WAS CRYING OUT TO

HIM, THAT'S WHEN I FELT

HIS ARMS WRAP ME UP AND

LIFT ME UP, SAYING, YOU'RE

MY SON.

I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO.

HE HAD BEEN RIGHT THERE

WITH ME THE WHOLE TIME.

I JUST HAD FAILED TO SEE

HIM.

Reporter: SUDDENLY

ALL OF BRIAN'S ADDICTIONS

WERE GONE.

HE HEALED ME IN A

SECOND.

IT WAS LIKE BEING ALIVE

FOR THE FIRST TIME.

Reporter: WITHOUT HIS

EXPENSIVE HABITS, HE WAS

PAYING DOWN HIS DEBTS.

HE EVEN STARTED GIVING

MONEY AWAY.

I WAS DOWN TO MY LAST

FIVE BUCKS, AND I SAID,

LORD, THIS IS FOR YOU.

I ACTUALLY MAILED THAT ONE

INTO CBN.

Gordon: HE SEES YOUR

HEART.

HE SEES YOUR PAIN.

HE SEES YOUR TEARS.

MY ONLY SOURCE OF

SPIRITUAL FOOD WAS

BASICALLY WATCHING PASTORS

ON TELEVISION AND WATCHING

CBN.

Reporter: WHILE BRIAN

WAS PAYING OFF ALL OF HIS

DEBT, HE STARTED GOING TO

CHURCH AND TITHING, AND

CONTINUED TO GIVE TO "THE

700 CLUB."

I JUST LOVED A LOT OF

THE MINISTRIES.

I THOUGHT ABOUT WELLS

BEING DUG FOR PEOPLE IN

THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES FOR

PEOPLE WHO HAD NOTHING.

IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE I

COULD BE A PART OF THAT.

Reporter: BRIAN SAYS

AS HE GAVE, HE RECEIVED.

AS ONE OF THE MEMBERS

OF MY CONGREGATION DECIDED

SHE WAS GOING TO MOVE, AND

OUT OF NOWHERE SHE GAVE ME

NEW FURNITURE.

SHE SAW ME IN NEED.

I WAS PAYING FOR A TAXI TO

GO TO AND FROM WORK, OVER

$300 A MONTH.

INSTEAD OF SELLING HER

CAR, SHE DECIDED JUST TO

GIVE IT TO ME.

Reporter: BRIAN STILL

WORKS AS A CHEF, AND HE IS

PURSUING A LATC BACHELOR'S

DEGREE IN MINISTRY.

I WOULD LOVE TO

SPECIALIZE IN ADDICTION

MINISTRY.

Reporter: HE SAYS HE

HAS SEEN FIRSTHAND WHY

TRUSTING GOD CAN DO FOR

YOUR LIFE.

WHEN HE SAYS TITHE TO

ME, IT MEANS GIVE ME YOUR

FIRST FRUITS.

HE DESERVES THE BEST.

HE GAVE ME HIS BEST.

HE DIDN'T SEND ONE OF HIS

SERVANTS TO US, HE SENT

HIS SON.

HE SENT US HIS FIRST BORN.

WHY SHOULDN'T WE GIVE IT

TO HIM.

Gordon: THE

PRINCIPLES WORK FOR

EVERYONE.

YOU PUT THE PRINCIPLE INTO

PRACTICE, AND THEN GOT

RESPONDS.

HE IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR

OTHERS, HE WILL DO FOR

YOU.

WHAT HE IS LOOKING FOR IS

FAITH.

THE EYES OF THE LORD GO TO

AND FRO OVER THE WHOLE

WORLD TO SHOW HIMSELF

STRONG TO THOSE WHO'S

HEARTS ARE LOYAL TO HIM.

SO HE IS LOOKING FOR THAT

FAITH.

AND HOW CAN YOU SHOW IT?

VERY TANGIBLY WITH YOUR

FINANCES.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR GOD

TO BLESS YOUR FINANCES,

PUT THE PRINCIPLE OF

RECIPROCITY INTO PRACTICE.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO START THAT,

GIVE US A CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

YOU ASK FOR PLEDGE

1-800-700-7000.

Terry: I'D LIKE TO

TAKE YOU TO CAMBODIA,

WHERE ONE SINGLE MOM WAS

SO POOR THAT SHE HAD TO

FEED HER CHILDREN WEEDS

JUST TO SURVIVE.

SO WHEN WE MET THIS

DESPERATE FAMILY, WE GAVE

THEM MORE THAN JUST FOOD.

WE ALSO GAVE THEM A WAY TO

REBUILD THEIR LIVES.

EVERY MORNING AT 4 a.m.

CHANU WENT WITH HIS MOM TO

WORK AT THIS MEAT

PROCESSING FACILITY IN

CAMBODIA.

HE DROPPED OUT OF SCHOOL

TO HELP, EVEN THOUGH HIS

MOM WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO

GOT PAID.

BECAUSE OF CHANU'S

HELP, I EARNED A LITTLE

MORE MONEY.

WITHOUT HIS HELP, WE WOULD

ALL STARVE AND DIE.

Terry: SHE STILL ONLY

EARNED $3 FOR A 15-HOUR

SHIFT.

I DON'T MAKE ENOUGH FOR

THREE MEALS.

WE NEVER HAVE BREAKFAST.

Terry: SOMETIMES THEY

RESORTED TO EATING WEEDS

FROM A SWAMP JUST TO

SURVIVE.

ONE DAY CHANU WAS SO

HUNGRY, HE STOLE A BONE TO

MAKE SOUP FOR HIS FAMILY.

WHEN HE CAUGHT ME, I

FELT SO ASHAMED.

MATERIALITYF.

TerryASHAMED.

Terry: AND THEN SHE

GOT FIRED.

AND FOOD WAS EVEN MORE

SCARCE.

SHE TRIED TO GET A JOB AT

A SOWING FACTORY WHERE SHE

ONCE WORKED, BUT IT HAD

SHUT DOWN.

THEN SHE MET A SUPPORTER.

WITH A MACHINE, I'M

MAKING CLOTHES AND I MAKE

LOTS OF KIDS' UNIFORMS,

LIKE I DID IN THE

FACTORYMENT ANFACTORY.AND NOW MY BOYS WILL NEVER

STARVE BEGAN.

Terry: CHANU HAS NOW

GONE BACK TO SCHOOL WITH A

UNIFORM MADE BY HIS MOM.

AND THEY PRAYED TO BECOME

CHRISTIANS.

CBN GAVE US A SEWING

MACHINE AND UNIFORMS.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

FOR EVERYTHING.

Terry: CHANU SAYS

THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM

OF HIS HEART.

DID YOU SEE THE LOOK ON

THE FACE OF HIS MOM?

DIGNITY HAS BEEN RESTORED.

HOPE FOR THE FUTURE ALIVE

IN THEIR HEARTS NOW, AND

IT ALL CAME FROM PEOPLE

LIKE YOU, WHO ARE MEMBERS

OF "THE 700 CLUB."

THAT'S WHAT WE DO AROUND

THE WORLD.

GORDON?

Gordon: AS A MARINE

IN COMBAT, NED IS TRAINED

TO HANDLE TOUCH

SITUATIONS.

WHILE HE IS OVERSEAS, HIS

WIFE FACES A DIFFERENT

KIND OF CHALLENGE HERE AT

HOME: FIGURING OUT HOW TO

PAY THE BILLS.

Reporter: IN THE

MIDST OF WAR, MARINE

COMMUNICATION SPECIALIST

NED'S JOB IS TO CAPTURE

FOOTAGE OF PHOTOS OF

COMBAT WHERE CIVILIAN

REPORTERS ARE NOT

ALLOWEDED TO GO.

AS A CHRISTIAN, HE

BELIEVES GOD HAS SAVED HIM

IN BATTLE.

I HAVE STEPPED ON A

BOMB THAT DID NOT GO OFF.

THE ONLY REASON I MUST BE

HERE IS BECAUSE GOD HAS

PLANS.

Reporter: DURING

DEPLOYMENTS, NED RELIES ON

HIS WIFE, MELISSA, TO

HANDLE THE HOUSEHOLD IN

NORTH CAROLINA.

WITH TWO KIDS AND ONE ON

THE WAY, HE FEELS HER JOB

IS JUST AS IMPORTANT.

IT IS ALMOST

UNBELIEVABLE WHAT SHE IS

CAPABLE OF DOING.

I FEEL LIKE SHE GENUINELY

CAN HANDLE ANYTHING.

THERE IS A SENSE OF

NATIONAL PRIDE THAT COMES

WITH BEING MARRIED TO

SOMEBODY WHO CHOOSES TO

MAKE THAT SACRIFICE.

Reporter: NOT LONG

AGO, MELISSA STARTED

TAKING ONLINE COURSES TO

FINISH MEDICAL TRAINING

FOR HER MID-WIFE CAREER.

SHE LOOKS FORWARD TO

CONTRIBUTING TO THE

FAMILY'S INCOME, BUT UNTIL

THEN, PAYING BILLS WITH

NED'S INCOME WAS TOUGH.

WE REALIZED WE WERE

USING CREDIT CARDS TO PAY

FOR THINGS LIKE GROCERIES

BECAUSE WE JUST WEREN'T

GETTING BY.

PANIC REALLY KIND OF

SETS IN.

THE HUGE PICTURE OF

EVERYTHING THAT SEEMS TO

BE FALLING APART ALL AT

ONCE.

Reporter: EVEN AFTER

NED TOOK ON A SECOND JOB

DELIVERING PIZZA, THE

COUPLE COULDN'T GET AHEAD.

THEY PRAYED THAT GOD WOULD

GET THEM THROUGH THE

FINANCIAL CRISIS.

SOMEWHERE ALONG THE

WAY, SOMETHING IS COMING

THAT IS GOING TO GET US

OUT OF THIS, THAT GOD

ISN'T FINISHED AND ISN'T

JUST STANDING AROUND,

WAITING FOR US TO WALLOW

INTO SELF-PITY.

Reporter: THEIR

CHURCH CONTACTED CBN AND

ASKED FOR HELP.

I WAS JUST SO THANKFUL

THAT "HELPING THE

HOMEFRONT" IS WILLING TO

BE AN AGENT FOR GOD IN

EXPRESSING HIS KINDNESS

AND HIS GENEROSITY.

Reporter: CALGARY

CHAPEL'S PASTOR GREG

SCHMIDT TOLD THEM CBN WAS

HELPING THEM PAY FOR THE

MOVE AND PAYING OFF A

PORTION OF HER TUITION.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW

TO SAY THANK YOU.

I GUESS JUST TO START

THERE.

Reporter: PASTOR GREG

HAD ONE MORE SURPRISE.

WE HAVE A FINANCIAL

MENTOR TO HELP YOU.

OH, MY.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO

THAT?

I GUESS YOU COULD SAY,

GOD IS GOOD.

YES, REALLY, REALLY

GOOD.

Reporter: NED AND

MELISSA MET WITH A

FINANCIAL ADVISOR AND

MAPPED OUT A PLAN TO GET

THEM THROUGH UNTIL MELISSA

GETS HER DEGREE.

JUST IN TIME FOR THE

ARRIVAL OF HER NEW SON.

I FEEL LIKE THE BIGGEST

BURDEN HAS BEEN LIFTED.

PART OF IT.

MIRACLES AREN'T JUST

SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED A

LONG TIME AGO IN THE

BIBLE.

MIRACLES ARE FOR YOU

TODAY.

ON OUR LATEST D.V.D., PAT

ROBERTSON REVEALS THE

SECRET TO SEEING THEM IN

YOUR LIFE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Wendy: I LOVE HEARING

THAT, NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD.

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TELL ME.

WHATEVER IT IS, GOD KNOWS.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT, HE

WANTS YOU TO GET YOUR

HOPES UP.

IT IS NOT TOO LATE.

YOU HAVEN'T MISSED IT, AND

IT IS STILL ON THE WAY.

GOD SAYS IN PALMS 37: 4:

"I WANT TO GIVE YOU THE

DESIRES OF YOUR HEART."

THAT'S THE KIND OF GOD WE

SERVE.

BUT WE HAVE TO GET OUR

HOPES UP BY EXPECTING.

IT IS CALLED "THE LAW OF

EXPECTATION."

THE KEY TO RECEIVING IS

BELIEVING.

IT SOUNDS TOO SIMPLE, BUT

IT IS THE LAW.

JUST LIKE THE LAW OF

GRAVITY WORKS EVERY TIME.

BOOM.

33 SECONDS LEFT ON THE

THROW IT OVER TO GORDON.

Gordon: PARTNERS FROM

OREGON SAYING $225,000 IS

NOT ENOUGH.

THEY WANT TO TAKE IT TO

$260,000.

LORD, WE JUST ASK FOR

BLESSING OVER THE PARTNERS

FROM OREGON WHO MADE IT

POSSIBLE FOR US TO

INCREASE THIS CHALLENGE.

OPEN THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN

AND POUR OUT A BLESSING,

Terry: YOU KNOW,

PEOPLE CAN BE SO CRUEL AND

ESPECIALLY CHILDREN.

BLENDER MOUTH AND UGLY

MONSTER, THESE ARE JUST A

COUPLE OF THE NAMES A

YOUNG GIRL IN CHINA WAS

CALLED ALL BECAUSE OF HER

CLEFCLEFT PALATE.

AND YET TODAY SHE LOVES TO

LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND

SMILE AND IT IS THANKS TO

PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

NO ONE IN XIA'S VILLAGE

WOULD TALK TO HER.

THEY JUST LAUGHED AT ME

AND CALLED ME BLENDER

MOUTH.

Terry: SHE BELIEVED

THAT WAS ALL SHE WOULD

EVER BE.

I KNOW I'M UGLY.

EVERY TIME I LOOK IN THE

MIRROR, I SEE SOMEONE

UGLY.

I'M HEARTBROKEN.

THERE WERE TIMES I WANTED

TO JUMP OFF A BUILDING AND

END MY LIFE.

I REMEMBER ONE TIME SHE

TRIED TO DRINK POISON.

I RAN AND TRIED TO STOP

HER.

Terry: ULTIMATELY HER

MOM ABANDONED THE FAMILY,

LEAVING MR. WANG TO TAKE

CARE OF HIS DAUGHTER

HIMSELF.

I JUST WANTED TO BE

PRETTY LIKE OTHER GIRLS,

BUT I WASN'T.

SO I HID UNDER A BLANKET

ON MY BED AND CRIED EVERY

DAY AFTER SCHOOL.

SHE DID VERY BAD IN

SCHOOL.

SHE HAD BREATHING

PROBLEMS, AND SHE GOT NOSE

BLEEDS ALL OF THE TIME.

I FELT SO SORRY FOR HER.

ESPECIALLY WHEN SHE ASKED

ME WHEN SHE COULD GET

SURGERY.

Terry: AS A FARMER,

MR. WANG ONLY MAKES A FEW

DOLLARS A DAY.

I HAVE TO PAY FOR

LIVING EXPENSES, SCHOOL

FEES AND MEDICINES FOR

HER, SO I COULDN'T SAVE

FOR SURGERY.

BUT I SAID, DON'T WORRY,

WE'LL FIND A WAY TO FIX

YOUR LIP.

YOU'LL BE FINE.

I DID NOT WANT MY DAUGHTER

TO HAVE TO STAY IN THE

COUNTRY HER WHOLE LIFE,

WITH NO FRIENDS AND NO

FUTURE.

Terry: BUT THAT WAS

THE DIRECTION SHE WAS

HEADED UNTIL CBN SET UP

AND PAID FOR THE CLEFT LIP

SURGERY SHE AND HER FATHER

HAD DREAMED OF.

NOW THAT MY LIP HAS

BEEN REPAIRED, I LOOK IN

THE MIRROR AND THINK I'M

BEAUTIFUL, LIKE A BOUQUET

OF FLOWERS.

I EVEN HAVE DIMPLES, THAT

I NEVER HAD BEFORE.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING MY

DAUGHTER SURGERY AND

COMPLETELY CHANGING HER

LIFE.

Terry: TODAY SHE HAS

FRIENDS, AND SHE HOPES TO

BE A CLEFT LIP SURGEON ONE

DAY, AND AFTER MEETING

PEOPLE FROM CBN, SHE HAS

PRAYED TO BECOME A

CHRISTIAN.

I HAVE A GOD WHO LOVES

ME.

I KNOW HE SENT CBN TO HELP

ME.

AND NOW I WILL LIVE TO

HELP OTHERS.

Terry: WOW, THERE YOU

HAVE A FULL CIRCLE

INVESTMENT.

SHE'S BEAUTIFUL, ISN'T

SHE?

SHE WOULD NOT HAVE HAD THE

FUTURE THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN

HER WITHOUT YOUR LOVING,

HELPING HAND.

WE SAY THANK YOU, "THE 700

CLUB" MEMBERS.

IT IS SO SIMPLE FOR US TO

GO TO OUR PHONES AND MAKE

AN INVESTMENT, LIKE WE'RE

ASKING YOU TO MAKE TODAY,

BUT IN THIS LITTLE GIRL'S

LIFE, YOU MADE ALL OF THE

DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.

AND WE WANT TO SAY THANK

YOU.

THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT

OTHERS WHO SIMPLY ARE

UNFORTUNATE AND IN

CIRCUMSTANCES THAT DON'T

ALLOW THEM TO GET THE HELP

THEY NEED.

WHETHER IT IS FINDING

CLEAN DRINKING WATER, OR

HAVING SURGERY, FOOD TO

PUT ON THE TABLE FOR THEIR

CHILDREN -- YOU ARE IT'S

ANSWER THAT GOD ITHEANSWER THAT GOD IS SEN DING

TO ALL OF THAT.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CHALLENGE.

EVERY DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL

BE MATCHED DOING FOR

DOLLAR.

DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR.

CALL NOW.

Gordon: LIKE MOST

CHILDREN, CAROL HAS A FEAR

OF SNAKES, ESPECIALLY

SINCE HER GRANDFATHER DIED

FROM A SNAKE BITE.

STILL, EVERY DAY SHE HAD

TO WALK DOWN A

SNAKE-INFESTED PATH TO GET

CLEAN WATER, FOUR TIMES A

DAY.

Reporter: JASINTA AND

HER TWO DAUGHTERS LIVE IN

THIS JUNGLE COMMUNITY IN

HONDURAS.

SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, TWICE A

DAY, THEY MADE THEIR WAY

DOWN THIS STEEP SLOPE TO

COLLECT WATER FROM A

STAGNANT POND.

ONE DAY JASINTA FELL.

I RAN AND TRIED TO HELP

HER, BUT SHE COULDN'T

STAND UP FOR A LONG TIME.

Reporter: WHILE HER

BACK HEALED, SHE SENT HER

DAUGHTER TO COLLECT WATER.

CAROL NOW MADE FOUR TRIPS

A DAY INSTEAD OF TWO.

SHE DIDN'T MIND THE EXTRA

WORK.

SHE WAS AFRAID OF SNAKES.

I AM ALWAYS AFRAID A

SNAKE WILL COME OUT AND

BITE ME.

I AM ALWAYS WATCHING.

MAMA TOLD ME THAT GRANDPA

DIED WHEN A SNAKE BIT HIM.

Reporter: JASINTA IS

A SINGLE PARENT, RAISING

TWO DOGS.

SHE WORKS ON A COFFEE

PLANTATION, PLANTING AND

HARVESTING.

THEIR GREATEST CHALLENGE

HAS ALWAYS BEEN COLLECTING

CLEAN WATER.

TIMES WHEN I DRANK THE

WATER I GOT SICK AND THREW

UP.

I DIDN'T LIKE TO DRINK IT.

ONE DAY MY LITTLE SISTER

GOT REALLY SICK.

EVERY TIME MY GIRLS GOT

SICK, I HAD TO BORROW

MONEY TO TAKE THEM DOWN

THE MOUNTAIN TO THE

DOCTOR.

Reporter: SO

"OPERATION BLESSING"

OFFERED TO HELP.

WE UNCOVERED AN

UNDERGROUND SOURCE OF

WATER.

WE THEN PURIFIED IT AND

PUMPED IT INTO A 10,000

GALLON TANK.

NOW THERE IS FRESH WATER

AVAILABLE FOR EVERYONE IN

THE COMMUNITY, INCLUDING

CAROL AND HER FAMILY.

WHEN I SAW THE WATER, I

THOUGHT WE WILL NEVER GO

BACK AND CARRY WATER FROM

THE POND AGAIN.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR BRINGING US

CLEAN WATER.

Gordon: AND THANK

YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," THANK YOU

BECAUSE YOU'RE PART OF

THAT CLEAN WATER.

YOU'RE PART OF PROVIDING

FOR THAT WONDERFUL FAMILY.

IT IS JUST INCREDIBLE WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN WE ALL GET

TOGETHER AND SAY, YES,

LET'S DO SOMETHING.

LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

IF THAT'S YOU, GIVE US A

CALL: 1-800-700-7000.

WE'VE GOT $8,000 LEFT, AND

33 SECONDS LEFT ON THAT

CLOCK.

I'M TAKING THE RED NUMBER

DOWN BECAUSE WE'RE HEARING

FROM PEOPLE.

SOUTH CAROLINA, THIS IS A

2500 CLUB MEMBER SAYING I

WANT TO DOUBLE AND GO TO

FOUNDER.

$5,000.

AND THEN FROM CLAIREMONT,

FLORIDA, ANOTHER 2500 CLUB

MEMBER SAYING I'M GOING TO

FOUNDER, $5,000.

THAT TAKES US OVER INTO

THE GREEN WITH SIX SECONDS

ON THAT CLOCK.

YOU CAN STILL BE A PART OF

IT.

WE WANT TO GO OVER THE

TOP.

IT HAS BEEN GLORIOUS.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL

CHALLENGE, AND AGAINST

THAT YOU GAVE $272,000.

> WE LEAVE YOU TODAY

WITH THESE WORDS FROM 1

CORINTHIANS: "THANKS BE TO

GOD WHO GIVES US THE

VICTORY THROUGH OR LORD

JESUS CHRIST."

LET THAT BE YOUR WATCH

WORD TODAY, "THANKS BE TO

GOD WHO GIVES US THE

VICTORY."

FOR TERRY, WENDY, FOR ME,

FOR ALL OF US HERE, GOD

BLESS YOU AND WE'LL SEE

YOU AGAIN TOMORROW.
