GOOD MORNING, MICHAEL. THIS IS CINDY, TESTING FOR "THE 700 CLUB,"
SEPTEMBER25, 2012. カカカ
[APPLAUSE] >> Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB."
HIGH SCHOOL, GRADUATION, FOOTBALL GAMES, AND MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONIES.
THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE PUBLIC EVENTS WHERE AMERICANS ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO MENTION
GOD. >> Terry: PAUL STRAND LOOKS AT THE GROWING
WAVE OF ANTI CHRISTIAN HOSTILITY COMING FROM AMERICA'S COURTS.
>> Reporter: ANGELA FACED THE REAL POSSIBILITY OF GOING TO JAIL FOR HER FATE.
IT BEGAN WHEN A JUDGE RULED NO ONE AT HER TEXAS HIGH SCHOOL COULD USE THE NAME GOD OR
PRAY. SHE FELT SHE SHOULD PRAY, EVEN IF IT MADE
HER GO TO JAIL. >> I THOUGHT I HAD TO MENTALLY PREPARE MYSELF
FOR WHAT COULD BE COMING. >> Reporter: THIS EXAMPLE IS ONE OF 640 CASES
OF RELIGIOUS HOSTILITY CITED IN THIS REPORT. LIBERTY INSTITUTE'S JEFF MATIRE, WHO TAKES
ON MANY OF THESE CASES, HELPED PUT THE REPORT TOGETHER.
>> THE RATE OF HOSTILITY TO PEOPLE OF FATE IS OVERWHELMING.
>> Reporter: ONE CASE INVOLVED THE VETERAN'S ADMINISTRATION DEMANDING TO PREVIEW PASTOR
SCOTT'S PRAYER BEFORE A MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY. >> I HAD NEVER SAID A PRAYER IN MY LIFE WHERE
I DIDN'T END IT BY SAYING "IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, I PRAY, AMEN."
>> Reporter: ALL THESE PEOPLE WERE TOLD THEY HAD TO STOP MENTIONING HIM.
>> THAT MAKES ME FEEL SMALL. >> Reporter: HE IS ALSO WORKING TO SAVE THIS
VETERANS' MEMORIAL CROSS IN SAN DIEGO, ONE OF SEVERAL CASES COULD HAVE SERIOUS NATIONAL
CONSEQUENSES IF COURTS ORDER THEIR REMOVAL. >> ARE WE GOING TO SANDBLAST GOD FROM THE
TOMB OF THE UNKNOWN SOLDIERS. >> Reporter: BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS, IF BELIEVEIES
FIGHT, THEY USUALLY WIN. >> YOU NEED TO STAND UP AND FIGHT.
>> Reporter: ONE DAY BEFORE HER GRADUATION, SHE COULD PRAY AND SAY WHATEVER SHE WANTED.
>> I THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT LOVE, AND A NATION WHERE WE ARE FREE, AND IT IS IN JESUS'
NAME I PRAY. >> Reporter: AND COURTS EVENTUALLY RULED PASTOR
RAINY, AND ALL VETERANS AT BURIALS ARE ALLOWED TO FREELY EXPRESS THEIR FAITH.
BUT AMERICANS' RELIGIOUS LIBERTY HANGS IN THE BALE.
PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS. >> Gordon: SOMEWHERE IN OUR CULTURE, IN MY
LIFETIME, WE'VE GOTTEN IT IN OUR HEADS THAT SOMEHOW PRAYER IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
AND THE SUPREME COURT NEEDS TO STEP UP AND PUT SOME RESTRICTIONS ON THIS BECAUSE THEY'VE
GONE SO FAR WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE THAT EVEN ERECTING A CROSS IS A PUBLIC CEMETERY
IS NOW DEEMED SOMEHOW ILLEGAL. WE HAVE THE RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH.
WE ALSO HAVE THE RIGHT OF FREE ASSEMBLY. WE ALSO HAVE THE RIGHT OF FREE EXERCISE OF
RELIGION. AND AS CITIZENS, WE SHOULD NEVER SURRENDER
THOSE RIGHTS. WE NEED TO STAND UP AND FIGHT, EVEN THOUGH
IT DOES COST A LOT. IMAGINE TAKING A CASE FOR A HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION
SPEECH ALL THE WAY TO AN APPELLATE COURT. THAT TAKES A LOT OF MONEY.
BUT THERE ARE GROUPS THAT ARE THERE FOR US AND TO HELP US, AND SO WE NEED TO USE THEM.
PRAYER IS BEING DROPPED AT YET ANOTHER HIGH SCHOOL.
LEE WEBB HAS MORE ON THAT STORY FROM THE CBN NEWS ROOM.
>> Lisa: A PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL IN WEST VIRGINIA HAS DROPPED PRE GAME PRAYERS FROM THEIR FOOTBALL
GAMES. SISSONVILLE HIGH SCHOOL MADE THE DECISION
AFTER THE FREEDOM FROM RELIGION FOUNDATION DEMANDED THE SCHOOL STOP PLAYING.
MANY STUDENTS AND PARENTS DO NOT AGREE WITH THAT DECISION.
PRINCIPAL JOHN REEDY SAYS HALF OF THE SCHOOLS 650 STUDENTS WORE PURPLE ON FRIDAY TO SHOW
THEIR SUPPORT FOR THE PRE GAME PRAYER. AND FANS RECITED THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AT THE
FOOTBALL GAME. PRESIDENT OBAMA IS TAKING A BREAK FROM THE
ASSEMBLY. THE PRESIDENT ALSO SAYS THAT THE U.S. WON'T
ALLOW IRAN TO DEVELOP NUCLEAR WEAPONS, BUT IRAN'S PRESIDENT, MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD, DENIES
HIS COUNTRY IS BUILDING THOSE BOMBS. HE TOLD REPORTERS IN NEW YORK IRAN ISN'T WORRIED
ABOUT AN ISRAELI STRIKE ON IRAN. HE ADDED THAT ISRAEL HAS NO ROUTES IN THE
MIDDLE EAST AND WOULD BE ELIMINATED. REPRESENTATIVES FROM MUSLIM COUNTRIES ARE
AGAIN ASKING THE U.N. TO PASS AN INTERNATIONAL LAW AGAINST BLASPHEMY.
IT COMES AFTER MUSLIM RIOTS AGAINST A MOVIE ATTACKING ISLAM.
THE 57th ORGANIZATION OF ISLAMIC CORPORATION HAS PUSHED THE U.S. TO PASS A LAW AGAINST
DEFAMATION OF RELIGION. BUT THE U.S. AND OTHER WESTERN DEMOCRACIES
HAVE TURNED BACK THOSE SUGGESTIONS. GORDON, THEY ARGUE THEY RUN COUNTER TO THE
IDEA OF FREE SPEECH AND RELIGION. >> Gordon: ABSOLUTELY THEY RUN COUNTER TO
IT. WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED TO A PAKISTANI
GIRL, WHEN AN IMAM MADE UP CHARGES AND GOT HER THROWN INTO JAIL FOR SUPPOSEDLY BLASPHEMY
AGAINST ISLAM, BUT THE PUSH IS ON, AND WE'LL SEE MORE AND MORE EFFORTS TO TRY TO MAKE IT
ILLEGAL. THE MUSLIM STATES THE MUSLIM ORGANIZED
STATES WILL TRY TO DO THAT, GET IT PASSED THROUGH THE U.N., AND HAVE IT BE SOME SORT
OF BASIC HUMAN RIGHT. AT THE SAME TIME, EVEN THOUGH THEY SIGNED
OFF THE DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS, THEY DON'T OBSERVE IT THEMSELVES.
THERE IS FREEDOM OF RELIGION, FREEDOM OF CONSCIOUS. TRY GOING TO SAUDI ARABIA AND BUILDING A CHURCH,
AND YOU'LL FIND OUT, NO, YOU CAN'T DO THAT THERE.
WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.
>> Gordon: FOR
MARCO AND REBECCA, DEBT WAS A WAY OF LIFE. THEY HAD NO IDEA HOW TO LIVE ON A BUDGET,
AND THE BILLS PILED UP. THEN REBECCA MADE A DECISION THAT HELPED THEM
TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR DEBT AND STILL HAVE MONEY TO SPARE.
>> Reporter: MARCO AND REBECCA CALLED LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS, HOME.
REBECCA DRIVES A SCHOOL BUS, AND MARCO IS A WELDER.
SEVERAL YEARS AGO, THEY WEREN'T MAKING AS MUCH AS THEY DO NOW AND COULDN'T PAY THEIR
BILLS. >> IT WAS A VERY DARK TIME.
IT WAS VERY DEPRESSING. AND WE HAD TO LET THINGS GO.
>> EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, WE HAD TO BORROW SOME MONEY, AND THEN I HAD TO TURN AROUND
AND PAY THAT BACK. SO THAT WAS ALSO MAKING IT A LITTLE BIT MORE
STRESSFUL. >> Reporter: THEN REBECCA LEARNED SOMETHING
ON "THE 700 CLUB." >> I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO BUDGET.
I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT BUDGETING LOOKED LIKE. I KNEW YOU GOT MONEY AND YOU PAID YOUR BILLS
AND THAT WAS IT. GORDON TALKED ABOUT PAYING OFF THE SMALLER
AMOUNTS FIRST, AND LITERALLY STARTED WITH THE SMALLEST ONE, AND STARTED PAYING ON IT,
WAS CONSISTENT WITH MY PAYMENT, AND PAID IT OFF AND WENT TO THE NEXT ONE AND THE NEXT
ONE, AND ON DOWN THE LIST. I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE THE BILLS NOW WERE CONTROLLING
ME. I NOW CONTROLLED MY BILLS.
>> Reporter: REBECCA ASKED MARCO IF THEY COULD TITHE TO THEIR CHURCH AND GIVE TO CBN.
MARCO AGREED. >> WHEN HE SAID SHE WANTED TO START GIVING
TO CBN, I SAID, BABY, YOU DO WHAT IS BEST WITH OUR MONEY.
>> Reporter: IMMEDIATELY THEIR FINANCIAL SITUATION CHANGED.
>> WHEN I REALIZED I COULD NOT ONLY PAY MY BILLS, BUT TO PAY THEM ON TIME, I JUST WANTED
TO CRY. BECAUSE THIS WAS GOD WORKING THIS.
HE WAS TAKING THAT LITTLE BIT THAT WE WERE GIVING AND TURNING IT INTO SOMETHING AMAZING.
HE WAS SHOWING US THAT HE DOES WORK. HE WAS SHOWING US THAT YOU CAN TRUST HIM.
HE WAS SHOWING US THAT GIVING DOES WORK. >> IT WAS A WELCOME BLESSING.
KNOWING THAT I DIDN'T HAVE TO GO AND BEG AND BORROW TO TRY TO SURVIVE ANYMORE.
>> Reporter: THEN THEY DOUBLED THEIR GIVING TO CBN.
SHORTLY AFTER, MARCO GOT A RAISE, AND REBECCA WAS PROMOTED TO SUPERVISOR OF ALL OF THE SCHOOL
BUS ROUTES. >> NOW WE CAN AFFORD THESE EXTRAS.
WE WERE PURCHASING THINGS WE DIDN'T THINK WE COULD.
AND IT WAS WITH CASH. IT WASN'T GOING INTO DEBT.
IT WAS MONEY WE HAD LEFT OVER AFTER PAYING OUR BILLS.
THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING TO US. WE'RE JUST TWO PEOPLE, ORDINARY INDIVIDUALS,
AND GOD HAS REALLY SHOWN HIS BLESSING AND HIS FAVOR ON IS FOR BEING OBEDIENT.
HE CAME THROUGH. YOU CAN'T OUTDO GOD.
>> Gordon: HERE ARE THE WORDS FROM JESUS, LUKE 6: "GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU."
YOU HAVE TO PUT THIS IN MOTION, AND THEN IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU "A GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED
DOWN, SHAKEN, WILL BE POURED INTO YOUR LAP. FOR WITH THE MEASURE YOU USE, IT WILL BE MEASURED
BACK TO YOU." MARCO AND REBECCA WERE IN DEBT.
THEY WERE IN TROUBLE. AND THEY HEARD A TEACHING ON HOW TO CREATE
A BUDGET. AND LET ME GIVE THAT TO YOU RIGHT NOW SO YOU
CAN HAVE THE SAME TOOLS THAT THEY HAD THAT TURNED THEIR LIVES AROUND.
I CALL IT THE 10 10 80 RULE. TITHE 10% OF YOUR INCOME, AND MAKE SURE YOU
PAY YOURSELF. THIS IS WHERE A LOT OF PEOPLE MESS UP.
YOU'RE NOT PAYING YOURSELF. YOU'RE NOT LOOKING AT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY'S
FINANCES YOU'RE REALLY IN BUSINESS. YOU'RE IN BUSINESS FOR YOUR FUTURE, YOU'RE
IN BUSINESS FOR YOUR COLLEGE TUITION FOR YOU'RE CHILDREN, AND YOU'RE IN BUSINESS FOR YOUR
RETIREMENT. IF YOU'RE NOT PAYING YOURSELF, YOU'RE NOT
SAVING. WHEN THESE UNEXPECTED EXPENDITURES COME, YOU
WON'T HAVE ANY MONEY IN THE BANK TO PAY THEM. AND THEN WRITE OUT ALL OF YOUR EXPENSES.
IT'S GOT TO BE 80% OF YOUR INCOME. IF YOU FOLLOW THAT SIMPLE RULE, YOU WILL PROSPER.
YOU WILL INCREASE YEAR OVER YEAR OVER YEAR. THERE WILL BE A POUNDING OF IT.
AND JUST IMAGINE 20 YEARS OF PAYING YOURSELF 10%, AND HOW MUCH MONEY WILL ACCUMULATE.
IF YOU'RE IN DEBT, YOU NEED TO GET OUT OF DEBT.
AND JUST LIKE REBECCA DID, START WITH THE SMALL ONES AND GET SOME SMALL VICTORIES.
AND SEE THAT MOUNTAIN OF DEBT START TO WHITTLE DOWN.
AND WHEN YOU GET COMPLETELY DEBT FREE, IT WILL BE A DAY OF REJOICING.
10 10 80. 10% TITHING, GET GOD ON YOUR SIDE: GIVE AND
IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU. AND 10% FOR YOURSELF.
MAKE SURE YOU'RE PAYING YOURSELF. YOU'RE IN BUSINESS FOR YOUR FUTURE.
PAY YOURSELF, AND THEN LIVE ON THE 80% AND SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU.
WHEN TODD OPEN HEART SURGERY, HE WAS OUT OF WORK FOR 10 MONTHS.
BUT EVEN WITHOUT TODD'S INCOME, HIS FAMILY PAID ALL THEIR BILLS ON TIME AND NEVER RAN
OUT OF MONEY. >> Reporter: CHAD AND KIM LIVED OFF THEIR
FARMS. >> I BEGGED MY HUSBAND FOR A GOAT.
HE SAID YOU CAN HAVE A GOAT IF YOU DO SOMETHING WITH IT.
WE DID LOTS OF THINGS. WE MADE CHEESE AND ICE CREAM.
>> I LOVE THE OUTDOORS, SO I THANK GOD FOR GIVING ME HIS NATURE TO WORK WITH.
>> Reporter: A FEW YEARS EARLIER, CHAD DEVELOPED HEART DISEASE AND HAD TO HAVE OPEN HEART SURGERY.
HE WAS UNABLE TO WORK FOR FOUR MONTHS. DESPITE THE CHALLENGES, CHAD AND KIM CONTINUED
TO TITHE AND CONTINUED TO WORK, SELLING THE GOAT MILK.
>> IT SEEMED LIKE ANY TIME WE WERE IN REAL NEED, SOMEONE WOULD CALL AND SAY, I NEED 10
BARS OF SOAP AND WE WOULD HAVE WHAT WE NEEDED. >> Reporter: WHILE CHAD WAS LAID UP FROM SURGERY,
FRIENDS FROM CHURCH PUT THEIR MONEY TOGETHER AND TOOK CARE OF THEIR BILLS AND BOUGHT THE
FAMILY GROCERIES. >> WE HAD $1,000 IN VISA GIFT CARDS, AND ANOTHER
$500 IN FOOD CARDS FOR MONEY. >> Reporter: WHEN THEY RAN OUT OF HAY TO FEED
THEIR ANIMALS, A NEIGHBOR HAPPENED TO CALL AND SAY HE HAD SOME HAY.
>> I SAID, I CAN'T PAY YOU. HE SAID YOU CAN ME WHEN YOU GET THE MONEY.
>> Reporter: THE BUSHY'S HAVE ADOPTED THREE CHILDREN, AND THE OLDEST ONE IS IN COLLEGE
RIGHT NOW. "ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS THE REASON THEY JOINED
"THE 700 CLUB." >> I LOVE HOW THEY CARE FOR THE ORPHANS AND
FEED THEM AND CLOTHE THEM. >> Reporter: AND THEIR 9 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER,
ELIZABETH, IS LEARNING TO GIVE, TOO. IN FACT, SHE LOVES CBN SO MUCH, INSTEAD OF
SAVING HER MONEY FOR A PONY, SHE GIVES HER $20 TO CBN.
>> I KEPT ON WATCHING CBN. AND I FELT LIKE A BIG PAIN IN MY HEART TO
GIVE. I TALKED TO MY MOM AND DAD, AND THEY SAID
YOU CAN GIVE. I ACTUALLY STARTED GIVING JARS TO THE CBN.
>> IT BLESSES ME VERY MUCH TO SEE OUR DAUGHTER GIVING, AND TO UNDERSTAND THE PRINCIPLES OF
OBEYING GOD'S WORD. >> Reporter: THE BUSHYS UNDERSTAND YOU CANNOT
OUTGIVE GOD. THAT'S WHY THEY INCREASED THEIR GIVING TO
CBN. >> ONLY GOD KNOWS HOW MANY APPLES YOU CAN
GET FROM ONE SEED. IF YOU GIVE TO CBN AND GOD, YOU WILL NEVER
SEE THE END OF THE BLESSING. >> YOU SHOULD GIVE, BECAUSE IF YOU GIVE IT
WILL BLESS GOD. >> Gordon: YOU SHOULD GIVE BECAUSE IT WILL
BLESS GOD, BUT IT WILL ALSO BLESS YOU. IF YOU START UNDERSTANDING THE PRINCIPLES,
GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU, YOU PUT THAT IN MOTION.
THESE ARE LAWS THAT GOD SET OUT FOR US. YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE HIM.
WHEN YOU START GIVING, YOU START THAT PROS PROCESS, AND IT WILL START HAPPENING TO YOU.
CBN PARTNERS, JUST LIKE CHAD AND KIM, WE LIKE GIVING SO MUCH, WE WANT TO CHALLENGE OTHERS
TO GIVE. FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, THEY'RE CHALLENGING
YOU $75,000. WHAT THAT MEANS IS THEY'LL MATCH YOUR GIFT.
IF YOU CALL IN THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, THEY'LL MATCH YOU, DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, UP TO $75,000.
SO $20 BECOMES $40. AND $100 BECOMES $200, AND $1,000 BECOMES
$2,000. LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING FOR THE PARTNERS
WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE TO ISSUE THIS CHALLENGE. AND WE ASK YOU WOULD SPEAK TO THOSE WATCHING
NOW, ENCOURAGE THEM, LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU HAVE THEIR FUTURE AND IT'S YOUR PLAN TO PROSPER
THEM, TO GIVE THEM A HOPE AND A FUTURE. SO DO IT, LORD, SPEAK TO THEM, FOR WE ASK
IT IN JESUS' NAME. AMEN.
YOU HEARD IT, $75,000, 30 MINUTES TO GO TO MAKE IT.
WHAT WE NEED IS FOR YOU TO GO TO THE PHONE AND CALL US AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO BECOME
A MEMBER OF "THE 700 CLUB." THE NUMBER IS TOLL FREE, 1 800 759 0700, AND
JUST SAY, YEAH, I WANT TO BE A PART OF IT. I WANT TO BE A PART OF EVERYTHING YOU'RE DOING
AROUND THE WORLD. SO DO IT, CALL US.
TERRY? >> Terry: AS VOLUNTEERS AS AN ORPHANAGE, MR.
AND MRS.CHEN WERE USED TO HELPING YOUNG CHILDREN.
BUT WHEN THEIR BABY WAS BORN, THEY WERE THE ONES THAT NEEDED HELP.
MR. AND MRS.CHEN MARRIED IN THEIR MID 20s, AND IMMEDIATELY SIGNED UP TO VOLUNTEER AT
AN ORPHANAGE. SO BY THE TIME MRS.CHEN GOT PREGNANT, THE
COUPLE CARED FOR A LOT OF BABIES AND FELT PREPARED TO BE PARENTS.
WHAT THEY WEREN'T REPAIRED FOR WAS THEIR BABY'S CLEFT LIP AND FACE.
>> I CRIED WHEN I SAW HER FACE. I KNEW PEOPLE WERE MOCKED.
I COULDN'T IMAGINE MY OWN BABY BEING TREATED LIKE THAT ALL HER LIFE.
>> Reporter: HER CLEFT LIP WAS SEVERE AND KEPT HER FROM EATING AND DEVELOPING LIKE SHE
SHOULD. >> SHE WAS SO SMALL.
SHE WAS ONLY 7.7POUNDS. I TRIED TO FEED HER, BUT SHE ALWAYS CHOKED,
AND HER FACE TURNED RED AND PURPLE. AND THEN SHE COULDN'T SLEEP BECAUSE SHE WAS
SO HUNGRY AND UNCOMFORTABLE. EVERY TIME SHE CRIED, IT WAS LIKE MY HEART
WAS BEING CUT INTO 100 PIECES. >> I WAS WORRIED MY DAUGHTER WOULD CHOKE TO
DEATH. AND WHAT IF HE MALNUTRITION LED TO RETARDATION.
OUR DOCTOR THOUGHT THERE WAS NO WAY TO HELP HER IN THE LONG RUN.
THEY SAID WE WOULD BE BETTER JUST GIVING HER UP.
>> Terry: THE POOR NEWLYWEDS DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY FOR SURGERY, BUT THEY DID HAVE FAITH.
>> I PRAYED TO THE LORD EVERY DAY. I BELIEVE HE HAS THE PERFECT PLAN FOR MY BABY,
AND I ENTRUSTED MY BABY TO HIM. >> Terry: NOT LONG AFTER PRAYING, MRS.CHEN
GOT A CALL WITH SOME VERY GOOD NEWS. CBN HAD AGREED TO HELP PAY FOR SAYON'S SURGERY.
IT WAS A THREE HOUR PROCEDURE THAT COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED HER FACE AND HER LIFE.
>> IT WAS LIKE ALL OF MY BURDENS WERE IMMEDIATELY TAKEN AWAY.
I WAS RELEASED FROM ALL WORRIES ABOUT MY DAUGHTER'S FUTURE.
I COULD NOT EVEN RECOGNIZE THAT THIS WAS MY BABY.
IT IS INCREDIBLE. SHE IS SO PRETTY.
>> WE VOLUNTEERED AT THE ORPHANAGE AND HELPED THE OTHERS.
AND THEN WHEN WE NEEDED HELP, GOD STRETCHED OUT HIS MERCIFUL HAND TO US, AND LED CBN TO
HELP US. I WANT TO THANK CBN FOR ARRANGING THE BEST
HOSPITAL AND THE BEST DOCTOR FOR MY BABY, SO THAT SHE COULD HAVE THIS SUCCESSFUL SURGERY
AND A MUCH BETTER LIFE. >> Terry: YOU KNOW, SO OFTEN WHEN WE SEE A
CLEFT LIP, CLEFT PALLET NEED, WE THINK OF THE SHAME, THE MOCKING THAT GOES ON, AND THE
DIFFICULTY OF HAVING PEOPLE SHARING AT YOU. BUT FOR CHILDREN THAT ARE THIS SMALL AND HAVE
THIS SEVERE OF AN ISSUE, THEY CAN'T EVEN EAT. THEY'RE CHOKING ON THEIR OWN FOOD.
YOU LITERALLY GAVE LIFE TO THIS CHILDREN. IF YOU'RE A "THE 700 CLUB" MEMBER, YOU ARE
DOING THIS FOR CHILDREN ALL AROUND THE WORLD AND WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.
IF YOU'RE NOT A "THE 700 CLUB" MEMBER, WHAT A GREAT TIME TO MAKE A DECISION TO DO SOMETHING
TODAY. WE TALKED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF GIVING,
AND NOT JUST FOR THE PERSON RECEIVING, BUT FOR THE PERSON WHO IS GIVING AS WELL.

DOUBLED. >> Gordon: WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO GIVE
US A CALL RIGHT NOW. IN PARTS OF PERU, WATER IS STORED IN SISTINES
THAT ARE HARD TO REACH. FOR ONE FAMILY, A TRIP TO GET WATER ALMOST
LED TO TRAGEDY. >> Reporter: ZIMA IS ONLY 4 YEARS OLD, BUT
THAT DOESN'T STOP HER FROM HELPING HER MOM AROUND THE HOUSE.
BUT THE FIRST TIME SHE WENT TO COLLECT WATER ALMOST BECAME A TRAGEDY.
SHE LEANED OVER TO GET WATER AND FELL IN. >> I HURT THE NEIGHBOR START TO SCREAM, ZIMA
FELL INTO THE WELL. >> Reporter: SHE STRUGGLED TO STAY AFLOAT,
BUT BECAUSE SHE SWALLOWED SO MUCH WATER BUT HER MOTHER PULLED HER OUT.
>> I SAID, LORD, NO SAVE MY DAUGHTER. AND THEN I SAID, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, LORD.
>> Reporter: WHEN "OPERATION BLESSING" HEARD OF THIS WATER, WE DECIDED TO DIG THEM A WELL.
IT PROVIDES FRESH DRINKING WATER FOR OVER 400 PEOPLE IN THE AREA.
THE BEST PART FOR ZIMA AND HER FAMILY, IT IS COMPLETELY ENCLOSED.
>> WE HAVE CLEAN WATER EVERY DAY, AND WE DON'T GET SICK.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE PHONES. >> Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.
IT IS GOOD TO STAY INFORMED AND WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE WORLD.
BUT IF YOU WATCH THE NEWS, YOU'LL THINK THAT AMERICA'S BEST DAYS ARE OVER.
BUT NOT IF YOU WATCH PAT ROBERTSON'S NEW C.D. >> Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT.
GOD HAS A PLAN, AND THE BIBLE SAYS SO. JEREMIAH 29: 11: "I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE
FOR YOU. PLANS TO HELP YOU PROSPER, TO GIVE YOU HOPE
AND A FUTURE." WE WANT TO GIVE YOU HOPE WITH PAT'S NEW TEACHING

IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE. AND WE'LL SEND YOU "GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA."
>> Gordon: IN TODAY'S ECONOMY, YOU MIGHT THINK TWICE ABOUT ASKING YOUR BOSS FOR A RAISE.
NOT MICAH MARTINEZ. HE COULDN'T EVEN AFFORD TO HEAT HIS HOME FOR
THE WINTER, SO HE ASKED FOR A RAISE AND GOT MUCH MORE THAN THAN HE EXPECTED.
>> Terry: MIKE AND TINA JUST MOVED TO A NEW AREA AND THEY WERE STRUGGLING RAISING THEIR
TWO CHILDREN ON THEIR OWN. >> WE ARE NEW PEOPLE TO THE AREA.
AND WE HAD TO JUGGLE FOOD AND BILLS AND CAR AND HOUSE, AND JUST MAKING IT ALL WORK.
>> Terry: SO TO CUT CORNERS, THEY SKIMPED ON FOOD AND LOWERED THE HOUSE TEMPERATURE
DURING THE WINTER. >> I HAVE PICTURES OF EMMY SITTING ON THE
FLOOR IN THE HOUSE WITH A THICK, KNITTED SWEATER WITH A HAT BECAUSE IT WAS COLD.
>> Terry: THEY WERE LIVING PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK WITH NO END IN SIGHT.
>> WE JUST HAD TO LEARN. >> Reporter: YEARS BEFORE MIKE AND ELLEN MET
WHILE BACKPACKING IN INDIA. ELLEN WAS HINDU BEFORE SHE MET MIKE.
>> GOD WAS THERE, WORKING THROUGH CBN IN HER LIFE AND MY LIFE.
>> GOD LED ME TO MY HUSBAND, WHO LED ME TO THE LORD.
>> Reporter: MIKE REMEMBERS HIS MOTHER TAUGHT HIM ABOUT GIVING, AND THE YOUNG COUPLE WAS
EAGER TO PUT THESE PRINCIPLES IN ACTION. >> IT LOOKED LIKE THE SMALLEST TIME OF GIVING
FROM THE NATURAL PERSPECTIVE, BUT I BELIEVE SPIRITUALLY, FROM GOD'S PERSPECTIVE, IT WAS
OUR GREATEST TIME OF GIVING. WHEN WE GAVE OUT OF OUR LACK AND NOT OUR ABUNDANCE.
>> WITH STARTED REALLY TITHING, AND BEING CONSISTENT IN OUR TITHING, KNOWING THAT GOD
WANTS THIS FROM US, YOU KNOW. AND WE STARTED GIVING FAITHFULLY.
AND THEN THINGS STARTED MOVING. >> Reporter: THE MARTINEZES SAW THEIR FAITH
WORKING. SOMETIMES THROUGH PEOPLE THEY DIDN'T EVEN
KNOW. >> IT WASN'T ALWAYS MONEY.
BUT IT WAS ALWAYS PROVISION, SOMEHOW TO GET US THROUGH FINANCIALLY.
>> Reporter: THEN MIKE WAS OFFERED A NEW JOB, FOR A COMPANY THAT MAKES AND SELLS HIGH PRECISION
BEARINGS. >> AND HE SAID, SOME PEOPLE WOULD LOSE THEIR
JOB ASKING FOR A 15% RAISE. THEN MY BOSS SAID, HERE'S WHAT WE'RE GOING
TO DO, WE'RE GOING TO PUT YOU ON A COMMISSION BASED TO YOUR SALARY.
AND IT ENDED UP BECOMING A 25% RAISE. >> PRETTY SOON AFTER THAT, WE MOVED TO A TWO
BEDROOM HOUSE, WHERE OUR CHILDREN COULD HAVE THEIR OWN ROOM, AND WE COULD HAVE OUR OWN
ROOM. AND WE HAD A BIG BACKYARD, WHERE THEY COULD
PLAY. IT WAS SUCH A BLESSING, JUST TO BE ABLE TO
GIVE THEM THAT. ALL OF IT CAME OUT OF ONE.
>> Reporter: THE MARTINEZES WANTED TO GIVE BACK, AND THEY CHOSE "THE 700 CLUB."
>> GOD IS SAYING I WANT TO BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY. HE IS SAYING I LOVE YOU.
IT IS ABOUT HOW MUCH ARE YOU GOING TO TRUST HIM.
>> Gordon: HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM ISAIAH 1: "IF YOU WILL ONLY OBEY ME AND LET ME HELP
YOU, THEN YOU WILL HAVE PLENTY." MICHAEL AND ELLEN, IT WAS HARD FOR THEM TO
GIVE. THEY WERE LIVING IN VERY DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES.
BUT THEY GAVE, AND THEN THEY GAVE FAITHFULLY. IT WASN'T JUST, I'M GOING TO DO THIS ONE TIME.
THEY GAVE FAITHFULLY. AND THEN GOD GAVE HIM CREATIVE IDEAS THAT
ALLOWED HIM TO TURN AROUND A BUSINESS AND HELP HIS EMPLOYER AND MAKE MORE MONEY.
AND HE GOT REWARDED FOR THAT. THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU WILL ONLY OBEY
GOD AND LET HIM HELP YOU. THEN THE BLESSINGS COME.
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 BE A PART OF DRILLING WELLS.

LARRY AND LAURA WORKMAN HAD A MULTI MILLION BUSINESS, UNTIL THE RECESSION HIT, AND THEY
FOUND THEMSELVES WITH MORE DEBT THAN THEY HAD EVER IMAGINED.
>> $1.5MILLION WE OWED, AND THE LETTERS KEPT COMING, AND THE THREATS.
THAT'S THE ONE THAT WOKE ME UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
>> THEY WANT MORE MONEY THAN YOU EVEN POSSIBLY COULD HAVE.
I REMEMBER WE WERE DRIVING IN THE CAR AND JUST CRYING.
THERE IS NO WAY WE HAVE THIS MONEY. >> Reporter: WHEN THE RECESSION HIT IN 2008,
LARRY AND LAURA WORKMAN WATCHED THEIR ROOFING BUSINESS TAKE A DIVE.
RESULTING IN $1.5MILLION IN BACK TAXES. NATIONAL SINGLE PLY HAD ONCE BEEN A MULTI
MILLION CORPORATION. NOW THE ECONOMIC ELEVATOR THAT HAD TAKEN THE
BUSINESS UP WAS GOING DOWN. >> WE WERE ALWAYS HAVING TO PUT MONEY INTO
THE COMPANY AND PUT MONEY INTO THE COMPANY. WHEN YOU START RUNNING OUT OF MONEY, YOU HAVE
NO CUSHION. I HAD NO CUSHION, AND IT MAKES YOU FEEL INSECURE.
>> Reporter: LARRY AND LAURA AGREED THEY WOULD KEEP TITHING ON WHAT LITTLE THE MONEY DID
MAKE. >> YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO DO IT.
IF I'M GOING TO TRUST HIM TO TAKE ME TO HEAVEN WHEN I DIE, YOU'VE GOT TO TRUST HIM WITH THIS.
>> IT IS EASY TO GIVE WHEN TIMES ARE GOOD. WHEN TIMES ARE TOUGH, YOU'VE GOT TO SUCK IT
UP AND DO IT. >> Reporter: ONE PLACE THEY KEPT GIVING WAS
TO CBN. LAURA SAYS BECAUSE GOD TOLD THEM TO.
>> I LIKE THE WAY THEY HELP OTHERS. AND THEY GO TO POVERTY STRICKEN PLACES WHERE
THEY DON'T KNOW GOD, AND THEY PREACH THE GOSPEL. >> Reporter: JUST LAST FALL THEIR CRISIS ENDED.
ONE OF LARRY'S BIGGEST COMPETITORS CHOSE TO DOWN SIZE, GIVING LARRY THE OPPORTUNITY TO
BID ON CONTRACTS, MAKING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS MORE.
PUTTING THE COMPANY BACK IN THE BLACK. >> IT IS LIKE A BIG BURDEN WAS LIFTED OFF
YOUR SHOULDER. >> IT WASN'T A SPRINKLE.
IT WAS LIKE A DOWNPOUR. IT'S ALMOST OVERWHELMING.
>> Reporter: IN LESS THAN A YEAR, THE WORKMAN'S PAID THEIR BACK TAXES AND OTHER DEBTS.
THEY ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO GIVE. >> DO IT.
YOU MUST DO IT. YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO DO IT.
GOD WILL HELP YOU TO BE FAITHFUL AND TRUE. HE'LL HONOR THOSE WHO HONOR HIM.
YOU CANNOT AFFORD NOT TO TRUST GOD. ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE DOWN LIKE THAT.
YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO TRUST GOD. >> Gordon: TRUST HIM.
WHEN YOU TRUST HIM WITH YOUR FINANCES, YOU'RE PUTTING YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR HEART IS.
PROVERBS 11: "IT IS POSSIBLE TO GIVE AWAY AND BECOME RICHER.
IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO HOLD ON TIGHTLY AND LOSE EVERYTHING.
YES, THE LIBERAL MAN SHALL BE RICH. BY WATERING OTHERS, HE WATERS HIMSELF."
WHEN YOU DO THAT, WHEN YOU PUT THESE PRINCIPLES INTO PRACTICE, AND DO IT ON A REGULAR BASIS,
THAT'S WHEN GOD COMES THROUGH. AND HE DID FOR LARRY AND LAURA.
THEY FACED NOT JUST A MOUNTAIN, BUT AN EVEREST OF DEBT, AND GOD GOT THEM THROUGH IT.
AND HE CAN DO IT FOR YOU IF YOU JUST TRUST HIM.
IF YOU WANT TO START TRUSTING GOD WITH YOUR FINANCES, GIVE US A CALL.
1 800 759 0700. BE PART OF WHAT WE'RE DOING.
WE WANT TO SEE THE GOSPEL GO OUT TO EVERY NATION, EVERY TRIBE, EVERY TONGUE.
WE HAVE 15 PRODUCTION CENTERS LOCATED AROUND THE WORLD.
WE TRAIN LOCAL CHRISTIANS HOW TO PREACH THE GOSPEL ON TELEVISION, IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE,
AND SHOW THEM HOW TO DO THE STORIES SO THAT PEOPLE CAN SEE WHAT JESUS IS DOING IN THEIR
COUNTRY RIGHT NOW, HOW HE IS CHANGING LIVES. AND THAT'S IT'S A SIMPLE FORMULA, BUT IT
WORKS. AND WHEN PEOPLE SEE WHAT JESUS DOES FOR OTHERS,
THEY SAY I WANT THAT, TOO. AND SO THEY PRAY WITH US, BY THE MILLIONS.
SO IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF IT, CALL US, 1 800 759 0700.
TERRY? >> Terry: FOR ALBERTO, LIFE AS A SINGLE DAD
IN GUATEMALA WASN'T EASY. HE HAD SIX CHILDREN AND VERY LITTLE MONEY.
BUT THEN HE LOST HIS JOB AND THINGS GOT EVEN WORSE.
>> Reporter: ALBERTO BECAME A SINGLE PARENT AFTER HIS WIFE ABANDONED THE FAMILY.
>> THINGS HAVE BEEN VERY BUSY FOR US SINCE SHE LEFT BECAUSE I HAVE TO RAISE OUR SIX CHILDREN
ON MY OWN. I WOULD WORRY ABOUT THEM.
I RUSHED HOME EACH DAY AFTER WORK. >> I WAS VERY SAD EVERY TIME MY DAD LEFT FOR
HIS JOB. >> Reporter: THEN ALBERTO LOST HIS JOB PROCESSING
SALT, AND THINGS GREW EVEN MORE CHALLENGING. THIS IS WHERE THE FAMILY HAS BEEN FORCED TO
LIVE, IN A CHANTEY WITH A DIRT FLOOR, AND WALLS MADE OF PLASTIC BAGSMENT.
>> WE WERE HUNGRY, BUT MY DAD DIDN'T HAVE MONEY TO BUY FOOD.
>> Reporter: THE FIRST THING "OPERATION BLESSING" DID WAS BUILD THE FAMILY A NEW, STURDY HOME,
ONE THAT WOULD PROTECT THEM FROM THE ELEMENTS. >> I WOULD NEVER DREAM WE WOULD HAVE A HOUSE
LIKE THIS. I AM SO THANKFUL TO GOD.
>> THANKS FOR OUR NEW HOUSE. IT IS VERY NICE.
>> Reporter: WHEN WE LEARNED THAT ALBERTO HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND ANOTHER JOB, WE
ASKED HIM ABOUT OTHER SKILLS AND DREAMS. >> I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE MY OWN BICYCLE
REPAIR BUSINESS. >> Reporter: SO "OPERATION BLESSING" GAVE
ALBERTO ALL OF THE TOOLS AND SUPPLIES HE NEEDED TO OPEN A SMALL REPAIR BUSINESS RIGHT IN FRONT
OF HIS NEW HOME. NOW HE CAN WORK AND TAKE CARE OF HIS CHILDREN
THROUGHOUT THE DAY. >> THANKS TO "OPERATION BLESSING," I HAVE
RECEIVED SO MANY BLESSINGS FOR MY FAMILY. NOW I CAN ENJOY MY LIFE WITH MY KIDS.
THANKS TO YOU. >> THANK YOU!
>> Terry: YOU GAVE THIS MAN BACK HIS DIGNITY. YOU GAVE HIM AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A LIVING
FOR HIS FAMILY, HOPE AND A FUTURE FOR HIS CHILDREN, A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE.

C.D.s. AND YOU WILL HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF KNOWING
YOU ARE TOUCHING AND BLESSING OTHERS. >> Gordon: IN APRIL, A STRING OF TORNADOES
DAMAGED MORE THAN A DOZEN HOMES IN THE DALLAS, FORT WORTH AREA.
WHEN MARIA'S HOME WAS CONDEMNED, SHE WAS GIVEN 48 HOURS TO GET HER STUFF AND GET OUT.
>> Reporter: MANY PEOPLE LOST EVERYTHING WHEN THE TORNADOES HIT THE DALLAS FORT WORTH AREA.
MARIA WAS IN DANGER OF LOSING EVERYTHING SHE OWNED.
>> YOU HAVE UNTIL SATURDAY. YOU HAVE, LIKE, TWO DAYS TO MOVE OUT.
>> Reporter: MARIA'S BUILDING WAS CONDEMNED, AND SHE WAS GIVEN 48 HOURS TO MOVE.
MARIA LIVES ALONE AND KNEW THERE WAS NO WAY SHE COULD MOVE HER FURNITURE AND HER BELONGINGS
BY HERSELF. >> I'M REALLY NOT KNOWING WHAT I'M GOING TO
DO, BUT I'M JUST TRYING TO STAY POSITIVE BECAUSE I REMEMBER GOD SAYING I'M WITH YOU.
>> Reporter: HELP WAS ON THE WAY. >> ALL OF THIS GROUP OF PEOPLE SHOWED UP,
AND I'M, LIKE, WOW! I COULDN'T BELIEVE 10, 15 PEOPLE SHOWED UP.
EVERYBODY KNEW WHAT TO DO. EVERYBODY WAS HELPFUL.
>> WE HEARD ABOUT MARIA'S DEADLINE. WE KNEW THERE WERE A LOT OF LOGISTICS THAT
WERE GOING TO BE INVOLVED. SO WE SENT ABOUT A DOZEN PEOPLE TO PACK UP
HER BELONGINGS, AND WE SENT A CONSTRUCTION WORKER DOWN TO THE U HAUL PLACE TO GET A TRUCK.
>> Reporter: MARIA FOUND A PLACE TO LIVE WITH A RELATIVE.
AND WITH THE HELP OF "OPERATION BLESSING," SHE COULD PUT HER BELONGINGS IN STORAGE.
>> WHEN YOU HAVE TWO HANDS, YOU CAN ONLY DO SO MUCH.
BUT WHEN YOU HAVE TWO HANDS AND FOUR HANDS AND LOTS OF HANDS, YOU CAN DO LOTS OF THINGS.
ROW WITH THE ELECTRICITY OUT BECAUSE OF THE TORNADO, THE FINAL PACKING WAS DONE BY BATTERY
OPERATED LIGHTS. THE LAST BOXES WERE PACKED, AND THE ROOM WAS
EMPTY. WITH "OPERATION BLESSING"'S HOPE, MARIA MET
HER DEADLINE WITH TIME TO SPARE. >> TO HAVE YOU ALL HERE, "OPERATION BLESSING,"
IT IS LIKE A REAFFIRMATION OF GOD SAYING I'M WITH YOU.
>> Gordon: A REAFFIRMATION THAT GOD IS WITH YOU.
WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE FOR PEOPLE IN NEEDS.
WHETHER IT IS PROVIDING THEM A WAY TO EARN MONEY ON THEIR OWN, OR JUST PROVIDING THEM
HELPING HANDS TO HELP THEM MOVE. WE WANT TO DO THAT.
AND WE'RE THERE IN YOUR NAME WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."
IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT.
WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A $75,000 CHALLENGE. IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL, WE'VE GOT SOME GREAT
NEWS. SOME PARTNERS ARE SAYING $75,000 ISN'T ENOUGH.
THEY WANT TO TAKE IT UP TO $125,000 TO THE END THE HOUR.
LORD, WE ASK FOR BLESSING ON THIS, WE ASK FOR MULTIPLICATION.
WE ASK YOU WOULD OPEN WINDOWS IN HEAVEN AND POUR OUT BLESSINGS PEOPLE CANNOT CONTAIN.
AS THEY SEEK YOU AND SEEK TO BE OBEDIENT TO YOU, BLESS THEM, ENCOURAGE THEM.
FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS' NAME. AMEN.
YOU HEARD IT, $125,000 WITH JUST 17 MINUTES AND 40 SECONDS TO GO.
SO GO TO THE PHONE. BE PART OF IT.
BE PART OF EVERYTHING WE'RE DOING AROUND THE WORLD.
CALL US, 1 800 759 0700. LET'S CHECK IN WITH KRISTI WATTS.
>> Kristi: THANK YOU, GORDON. HISTORY BOOKS CAN TELL YOU ALL ABOUT AMERICA'S
PAST. BUT HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT
THE COUNTRY'S FUTURE. IT
IS ALL HERE IN PAT ROBERTSON'S D.V.D. CALLED "GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA."
>> Kristi: WE ALL KNOW THAT THE ELECTION IS, I DON'T KNOW, CLOSE TO 40 DAYS AWAY.
AND NOW IS THE TIME TO PRAY. IF YOU'RE THINKING, HOW SHOULD I PRAY FOR
OUR COUNTRY? HOW CAN I PRAY FOR AMERICA?
WELL, PAT'S GO TO SHOW YOU IN "GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA, HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE DAYS AHEAD."
THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN YOU BECOME A "THE 700 CLUB" PARTNER.
WE'RE ASKING YOU TO CALL IN RIGHT NOW, 1 800 759 0700.
WE'VE GOT ABOUT 16 MINUTES LEFT ON THIS CHALLENGE. I ALMOST FORGOT ABOUT THIS: DON'T YOU LOVE
A GOOD DEAL? I DO.
MAYBE YOU'RE A "THE 700 CLUB" PARTNER AND SAY I WANT TO TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL, "THE
700 CLUB" GOLD. YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THAT HAPPENS?
WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU THREE D.V.D.s. YOU CAN KEEP ONE FOR YOURSELF AND GIVE TWO
OTHERS AWAY TO MAYBE NEIGHBORS OR FAMILY MEMBERS. THE SAME WITH THE THOUSAND CLUB MEMBER, WE
GIVE YOU FIVE D.V.D.s. TAKE ONE FOR YOURSELF AND GIVE THE OTHER FOUR
AWAY SO WE CAN COLLECTIVELY PRAY FOR OUR NATION. WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A CHALLENGE, SO EVERY
DOLLAR IS AUTOMATICALLY DOUBLED. SO WE NEED YOU TO CALL IN NOW.
>> Gordon: THEIR HOUSE IS PAID OFF, AND THEY'RE COMPLETELY DEBT FREE, AND THEY SAY IT IS ALL
BECAUSE OF A DECISION THEY MADE WHEN THEY FIRST GOT MARRIED.
>> Reporter: GARY AND CAROL CROWE LIVE IN THE OZARK MOUNTAINS OF ARKANSAS.
>> IT IS ONE OF THE NEATEST COMMUNITIES WE HAVE EVER LIVED IN.
>> Reporter: GARY AND CAROL ARE CBN PARTNERS. CBN'S MEDICAL MISSIONS CONVINCED THEM TO MAKE
THEIR FIRST PLEDGE. >> THE SURGERIES THEY DO FOR CATARACTS AND
FOR CHILDREN BORN WITH CLEFT PALLETS ALL OF THAT IS JUST WONDERFUL, TO SEE HOW GOD
USES THE MONEY WE SEND. >> Reporter: AND THE CROWES HAVE CONTINUED
TO GIVE, EVEN DURING TOUGH ECONOMIC TIMES, BECAUSE OVER A LIFETIME, THEY'VE SEEN GOD
TAKE CARE OF THEIR FINANCES. LIKE THE TIME GARY WAS HIRED AS A STOCK CLERK.
IN JUST SIX YEARS, HE WENT FROM CLERK TO GENERAL MANAGER OF TWO MANUFACTURING FACILITIES.
>> I CAN NEVER REMEMBER A TIME WHEN I WAS UNEMPLOYED FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME.
THERE WAS ALWAYS PROVISION. GOD WAS ALWAYS THERE AND PROVIDED FOR US.
>> Reporter: AFTER 13 YEARS, GARY LEFT MANUFACTURING AND BOUGHT A PICTURE FRAMING BUSINESS.
THEY RAN THEIR SUCCESSFUL COMPANY AND SOLD IT FOR A PROFIT.
>> I BELIEVE WE HAVE EXPERIENCED GOD'S BLESSING ON OUR LIFE THROUGH THE YEARS BECAUSE OF THE
FACT WE GAVE BACK TO HIM WHAT WAS RIGHTFULLY HIS.
>> Reporter: GARY WORKS FULL TIME AS AN ASSISTANT PASTOR, AND CAROL WORKS PART TIME IN A CARD
SHOP. NOT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO, BUT BECAUSE THEY
ENJOY IT. >> GOD SAYS PROVE ME, AND SEE IF I WON'T OPEN
THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN AND POUR OUT BLESSINGS UPON YOU THAT YOU CANNOT CONTAIN.
AND WE HAVE PROVEN THAT TRUE. AND WE JUST FEEL THAT YOU CAN'T, IN ANY WAY,
OUTGIVE GOD. >> Gordon: YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE GOD.
AND THE WORD IS THAT THE MEASURE YOU USE IS HOW ITS MEASURED BACK TO YOU.
AND THAT, YOU JUST SAW THE RESULTS OF A LIFETIME OF GIVING, WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT WONDERFUL
COUPLE. MAKE IT A PRACTICE, THAT IT JUST BECOMES PART
OF YOUR LIFE, AND SEE WHAT GOD WILL DO FOR YOU.
CALL US AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE PART OF IT.
I WANT TO BE PART OF EVERYTHING. I WANT TO SEE THE GOSPEL GO AROUND THE WORLD.
I WANT TO SEE ORPHANS HELPED, AND I WANT TO SEE WELLS DRILLED SO PEOPLE CAN HAVE FRESH
DRINKING WATER. AND I WANT TO SEE CLEFT PALLETS HELPED.
IF THAT'S YOU, CALL US, 1 800 759 0700. >> Terry: I'M GLAD YOU MENTIONED ORPHANS,
BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A LOOK AT A NATION WITH A BIG PROBLEM.
IT IS KENYA. THEY HAVE MORE THAN A MILLION ORPHANS.
EVERY DAY THOUSANDS OF THESE CHILDREN ROAM THE STREETS, THEY'RE HOMELESS AND BEGGING
FOR HELP. >> Reporter: WHEN NELSON'S PARENTS DIED, HE
WAS FORCED TO LIVE ON THE STREETS AND BEG FOR FOOD.
>> SOMETIMES I HAD NO CLOTHES TO WEAR. I JUST WALKED NAKED IN THE STREET.
AT NIGHT I GOT SO HUNGRY, I WOULD KNOCK ON PEOPLE'S DOORS AND BEG THEM TO FEED ME SOMETHING.
>> Reporter: NELSON WAS STARVING, BUT BECAUSE OF HIS STRANGE BEHAVIOR, PEOPLE IN THE VILLAGE
ACCUSED HIM OF BEING A WITCH. >> I REALLY DIDN'T LIKE THE WAY PEOPLE TREATED
ME. IT MADE ME SAD.
>> Reporter: THEN ONE DAY HE HEARD A PASTOR PREACHING ON A STREET CORNER.
HE BEGGED HIM FOR SOMETHING TO EAT. THE PASTOR TOOK HIM TO A CHILDREN'S HOME,
SUPPORTED BY "ORPHANS' PROMISE." HERE NELSON FOUND A HOME.
>> I HAVE EVERYTHING I NEED, FOOD TO EAT, A PLACE TO SLEEP, AND EVEN CLOTHES TO WEAR.
>> Reporter: NELSON IS STUDYING HARD IN SCHOOL. AND IN HIS SPARE TIME, HE LIKES TO READ THE
BIBLE. THE CHILDREN HERE ARE HAPPY AND WELL CARED
FOR. MOST OF THEM WERE FOUND LIVING IN THE STREETS,
PRACTICALLY STARVING. SOME OF THEM MIGHT NOT EVEN BE ALIVE TODAY
IF NOT FOR THE HELP OF "ORPHANS' PROMISE." BUT ALL OF THE KIDS WE TALKED TO SAID AT NIGHT,
WHEN THEY PRAY, THEY THANK GOD FOR THE PEOPLE THAT HELP SUPPORT THEM.
>> NOW MY LIFE IS VERY GOOD. THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME.
I PRAY THAT GOD WILL BLESS YOU. >> Terry: WHEN NELSON MILES, THE SUN COMES
OUT. AND NELSON IS SMILING BECAUSE YOU WERE THERE
FOR HIM AT A POINT OF DESPERATE NEED. CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING A YOUNG CHILD AND NOT
BELONGING TO ANYONE, NOT HAVING FOOD ON THE TABLE, NOT HAVING A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE?
NOW HE HAS ALL OF THAT, AND HE IS BEING EDUCATED AND TOLD ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE HAS A FATHER
WHO LOVES HIM, WHO IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE WITH HIM.
THANK YOU FOR MAKING THAT HAPPEN. THAT'S WHY WE ASK YOU TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."
WILL YOU GO TO YOUR PHONE RIGHT NOW? OUR NUMBER IS TOLL FREE.
1 800 759 0700. JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
IN THE LIVES OF PEOPLE IN NEED AROUND THE WORLD.
TODAY I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB." GORDON?
>> Gordon: AFTER HIS SISTER DIED, ALMA ADOPTED HER NIECE AND NEPHEW, EVEN THOUGH SHE COULD
BARELY AFFORD TO FEED THEM. WHEN "OPERATION BLESSING" HEARD ABOUT ALMA'S
GENEROSITY, WE GAVE HER FAMILY SOME MUCH NEEDED HELP.
>> Reporter: ERIC AND HIS SISTER NEEDED A PLACE TO STAY AFTER THEIR MOTHER WAS KILLED
BY A STRAY BULLET. SO THEIR AUNT ALMA DECIDED TO TAKE THEM IN.
>> IF I HAD BEEN THE ONE WHO HAD DIED, I'M SURE MY SISTER WOULD HAVE TAKEN IN MY CHILDREN.
>> Reporter: BUT TIMES HAVE BEEN TOUGH FOR ALMA.
SHE IS ALSO A SINGLE MOTHER, RAISING HER TWO CHILDREN.
HER GREATEST CHALLENGE WAS TO MAKE ENOUGH MONEY TO PROVIDE FOOD FOR EVERYONE.
>> SOMETIMES I ONLY HAD A LITTLE JUICE OR A PIECE OF BREAD FOR THEM TO TAKE TO SCHOOL.
GOD KNOWS HOW I TRIED MY BEST TO GIVE THEM EVERYTHING I COULD.
ALTHOUGH IT HAS BEEN HARD, WE HAVE BECOME A BIG FAMILY.
>> Reporter: WHEN "OPERATION BLESSING" LEARNED WHAT ALMA WAS DOING FOR ERIC AND HIS SISTER,
WE SET UP A PLAN TO HELP. FIRST WE ENROLLED HER IN CLASSES TAUGHT BY
"OPERATION BLESSING," TO TRAIN HER HOW TO SEW AND RUN A SMALL BUSINESS.
THEN WE SURPRISED HER AND GAVE HER A NEW SEWING MACHINE.
WITH THE MACHINE AND A LITTLE START UP CAPITAL, ALMA IS ALREADY MAKING MONEY.
>> NOW THAT I HAVE A NEW MACHINE, I MAKE THE CLOTHING AND I SELL THEM IN THE COMMUNITY.
>> Reporter: ALMA'S CLOTHES HAVE BEEN IN HIGH DEMAND AT THE STORES WHERE SHE SELLS THEM,
AND ORDERS HAVE BEEN POURING IN. MEANWHILE, FOR ERIC AND HIS SISTER, LIFE IS
MUCH BETTER. ALMA IS ABLE TO PROVIDE FOOD FOR THEM AND
HOPE FOR THE FUTURE. >> THANK YOU, "OPERATION BLESSING."
>> Gordon: IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE 700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF BLESSING THAT FAMILY.
IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, CALL US. WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A $125,000 CHALLENGE.
WE HAVE $21,000 TO GO. SO CALL US, 1 800 759 0700.
LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE PHONES. >> Wendy: GORDON, IF YOU'RE TIRED OF ALL OF
THE DOOM AND GLOOM IN THE HEADLINES TODAY, AND WHO ISN'T, WE HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS FOR
YOU ABOUT AMERICA'S FUTURE. IT IS ALL HERE IN PAT ROBERTSON'S LATEST D.V.D.
TEACHING CALLED "GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA." HERE IS WHAT PEOPLE ARE ALREADY SAYING ABOUT
IT. >> I WAS JUST WATCHING PAT'S TEACHING ON GOD'S
PLAN FOR AMERICA. AND I WAS VERY ENCOURAGED.
I THINK PAT'S TEACHING IS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR.
THERE IS SO MUCH NEGATIVE ON THE TV, AND IT IS GOOD TO KNOW THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH NEGATIVITY,
WE HAVE A COVENANT. AND THERE IS A WAY FOR US TO RENEW THAT COVENANT
IF WE THINK WE HAVE GONE TOO FAR. IT IS POSITIVE NEWS FOR TODAY.
IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR ANYBODY WHO IS DISCOURAGED ABOUT THE STATE OF OUR COUNTRY.
IT IS VERY GOOD NEWS. >> Wendy: YOU KNOW WHAT?
GOD KEEPS HIS PROMISES. AND HE HASN'T FORGOTTEN THAT COVENANT HE MADE
WITH OUR FOREFATHERS, WHEN THEY DEDICATED THIS GREAT LAND TO JESUS CHRIST.
IT SEEMS LIKE THE WORLD IS GOING CRAZY, BUT GOD REMEMBERS AND HE IS FAITHFUL.
WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU WITH GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA.
GOD HAS A PLAN. HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU, FOR ME, FOR ISRAEL,
AND FOR AMERICA. WE WANT YOU TO GET EXCITED ABOUT IT.
GOD HAS A PLAN FOR US. SO WE WANT YOU TO HAVE IT RIGHT NOW WHEN YOU
JOIN "THE 700 CLUB." JUST 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH, TO CHANGE
THE WORLD, AND IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE, ALSO. WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIG CHALLENGE.
$125,000, WITH JUST SIX AND A HALF MINUTES LEFT ON THE CLOCK.
THAT MEANS IF YOU GO TO YOUR PHONES RIGHT NOW, EVERY DOLLAR YOU PLEDGE WILL BE MATCHED
DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR. IF YOU'RE ALREADY A MEMBER, RIGHT NOT TAKE
IT UP A NOTCH TO $40, THE GOLD LEVEL, AND IF YOU DO, WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU THREE D.V.D.s.
AND MAYBE YOU CAN DO MORE, $84 A MONTH, OUR THOUSAND CLUB MEMBER, AND WE'RE GOING TO GIVE
YOU FIVE. MAYBE YOU CAN GIVE THEM AWAY FOR CHRISTMAS
GIFTS. GO TO THE PHONES RIGHT NOW.
TERRY? >> Terry: IN HER SMALL LAND, IN THAILAND,
MRS.SHAW AS THE MOTHER GOD HAS BLESSED. BUT WHEN WE MET HER, SHE WAS A MOTHER OF TWO
CHILDREN AND NO HOME. >> Reporter: WHEN CBN THAILAND SAW HER, THIS
IS ALL SHE HAD LEFT. A TYPHOON HAD DESTROYED EVERYTHING.
>> I WAS VERY CONCERNED, ESPECIALLY FOR MY CHILDREN.
>> Reporter: SHE IS A WIDOW, RAISING HER CHILDREN ALONE.
HER OLDEST DAUGHTER FEELS THE WEIGHT OF THE SITUATION.
>> I FEEL SO SORRY FOR MY MOTHER AND MY LITTLE BROTHER.
>> Reporter: AFTER THE TYPHOON, THE TIE GOVERNMENT GAVE HER SOME MATERIALS TO REBUILD.
BUT SHE DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY TO HAVE SOMEBODY TO DO THE WORK.
SO SHE BEGGED A RELATIVE TO TAKE THEM IN. >> I KNEW WE COULD ONLY STAY HERE A SHORT
TIME. I DIDN'T WANT TO BE A BURDEN.
I COULD ONLY PRAY FOR HELP. >> Reporter: SO CBN HIRED A CREW TO HELP BUILD
HER HOUSE. MRS.SIA'S NEIGHBORS WERE ALSO HAPPY SHE
HAD BEEN GIVEN A NEW HOUSE. >> ONLY A KIND AND POWERFUL GOD CAN MAKE SOMETHING
LIKE THIS HAPPEN. NOW PEOPLE CALL ME THE MOTHER WHOM GOD HAS
BLESSED. >> THIS IS A VERY GOOD HOUSE, A STRONGER HOUSE.
MY MOTHER IS VERY HAPPY. >> I WILL REMEMBER THIS FOR THE REST OF MY
LIFE. MAY GOD BLESS YOU EVEN MORE THAN YOU BLESSED
ME. >> Terry: THANK YOU.
THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE ASKING PEOPLE DO TODAY, TO STAND UP AND SAY, LET ME BE THE ONE.

COUPLE WHO'S CHILD WAS DYING. HERE IS A LOOK AT HOW PEOPLE LIKE YOU HELPED

WHEN HE WAS A BABY, AND HIS PARENTS DIDN'T KNOW WHY.
>> WELL, WE TOOK HIM TO A DOCTOR IN THE CITY TWO DIFFERENT TIMES, BUT HE COULDN'T DIAGNOSE
WHAT WAS WRONG WITH HIM. >> OUR HEARTS WERE BROKEN.
WE WERE SAD TO SEE OUR SON GROWING WEAKER EACH DAY.
>> Reporter: THAT'S WHEN THE FAMILY LEARNED ABOUT A FREE "OPERATION BLESSING" CLINIC.
THIS IS A PHOTO OF DION WHEN THEY FIRST EXAMINED HIM AND DIAGNOSED HIM WITH BRONCHITIS AND
SEVERE MALNUTRITION. >> THE BONES IN HIS HANDS AND LEGS WERE VISIBLE.
HE WAS SO WEAK, HE COULDN'T STAND UP. >> Reporter: "OPERATION BLESSING" IMMEDIATELY
GAVE DION AN ANTIBIOTIC AND SPECIAL FORMULA TO HELP HIM GAIN WEIGHT.
WHEN WE CAME TO A FOLLOWUP VISIT TO HIS HOME, WE DISCOVERED WHY THE FAMILY MEMBERS HAD BEEN
SICK. FILTHY MATTRESSES AND NO VENTILATION FOR A
COOKING STOVE IN HIS HOME. WE GAVE THEM NEW MATTRESSES AND PAINTED AND
CLEANED HIS HOUSE, AND BUILT A PLATFORM FOR AN OUTDOOR KITCHEN.
