Gordon: WELCOME TO THE "700

CLUB".

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT REOPENED

TODAY

AFTER CONGRESS REACHED A

SHORT-TERM

SPENDING DEAL.

NOW LAWMAKERS HAVE TO WORK

TOGETHER OR

WASHINGTON COULD SHUTDOWN AGAIN

IN JUST

A FEW WEEKS.

Terry: THE KEY STICKING

POINTS ONCE

AGAIN INVOLVE IMMIGRATION AND

POSSIBLE

LEGAL STATUS FOR THE DREAMERS.

ABIGAIL

ROBINSON BRINGS US THIS STORY

FROM

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: AFTER DAYS OF ROUND

THE

CLOCK NEGOTIATIONS, LAWMAKERS

FINALLY

REACHED AN AGREEMENT TO FUND

THE

GOVERNMENT FOR THE NEXT 3

WEEKS. THE

HOUSE VOTED MONDAY NIGHT TO END

THE

STANDOFF AS THE SENATE DID SO

EARLIER

IN THE DAY.

WITH DAMAGING ARTISAN

THEATRICS OF

THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN BEHIND

US,

THERE IS A BIPARTISAN

NEGOTIATION TO

RESUME.

THEY AGREED TO A TEMPORARY

STAFF

CENTER TO REOPEN THE GOVERNMENT

BUT

ONLY UNTIL FEBRUARY 8TH AFTER

CONGRESS

PROMISED TO TAKE OPEN THE

SENATE BILL

TO ADDRESS THE DREAMERS.

WHETHER IT'S APPROVED IS UP

TO ALL

OF US.

THEY BLASTED THE DEAL SAYING

DEMOCRATS HAVE CAVED IN WITH

SOME

CALLING IT A SHOE OUT.

McCONNELL

ASSURED THEM THAT IF THERE IS

NO VOTE

ANN OVERALL IMMIGRATION ISSUE,

THE

SENATE WILL STILL VOTE ON THE

BILL

FOCUSED ON PROTECTING THE

DREAMERS.

TO ALL THE DREAMERS WATCHING

TODAY,

DON'T GIVE UP.

THIS BIPARTISAN CENTER SAYS

THEY ARE

GLAD TO BRING THIS TO A BRINK.

IF THEY

DON'T DEAL WITH THESE ISSUES BY

FEBRUARY 8TH, THEY CAN RUN OUT

OF MONEY

AGAIN.

Gordon: IN OTHER NEWS, ALASKA

WAS

UNDER A TSUNAMI WARNING TODAY

OFF THE

COAST.

JOHN HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

GORDON, THAT

TSUNAMI WARNING WAS CANCELED

AFTER NO

EARTHQUAKE HIT THE COMMUNITIES

IN

ALASKA ABOUT 12:30 A.M. IN THE

GULF OF

ALASKA WHICH TRIGGERED A

TSUNAMI

WARNING FOR ALASKA AND BRITISH

COLUMBIA.

THEY WERE WARNED TO SEEK HIGHER

GROUND

OR MOVE INLAND.

THE WEST COAST WAS TEMPORARILY

UNDER

TSUNAMI WATCH AS WELL.

VICE-PRESIDENT VISITED THE

HOLOCAUST

MUSEUM WE HAVE THAT STORY FROM

JERUSALEM.

Reporter: THE FIRST OFFICIAL

STOP FOR

VICE-PRESIDENT PENCE WAS WHERE

HE

REPEATED THE WHITE HOUSE PLAN

TO MOVE

THE EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM BY THE

END OF

NEXT YEAR AND CHANGES ARE

COMING WITH

THE DEAL WITH IRAN.

WE ARE SENDING OUR SIGNAL TO

THE

EUROPEAN ALLY FOR A TIME FOR

CHANGES IN

THE IRAN NEW DEAL THAT

PROVISIONS IN

THE DEAL ARE COMPLETELY

ELIMINATED.

PENCE HAS ENHANCED HIS

REPUTATION

WITH ISRAEL.

HE DEALT WITH PROTESTS AND

TALKED TO

THE MEDIA AND PRIME MINISTER.

YOU SAW PEOPLE STANDING UP

AGAIN AND

AGAIN APPLAUDING THE PRINCIPLES

THAT

GUIDE YOUR POLICY AND APPLAUD

YOUR

GENUINE FRIENDSHIP FROM YOUR

HEART.

THE NEXT MEETING WAS AN

EMOTIONAL

ONE.

MANY KNOW THAT THE PENCE

VISIT IS AS

MUCH OF A PILGRIMAGE AS IT WAS

HERE AT

THE WESTERN WALL.

THEIR JUDAISM HOLIEST SITE

WAS

DESIGNED AS A SEARCH FOR PEACE

IN THE

HOLY CITY AND THE MIDDLE EAST.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

THANKS, CHRIS.

GORDON, LOOKS LIKE MIKE PENCE

WAS

TRYING TO SIGNAL THAT HE WAS A

TRUE

FRIEND OF ISRAEL.

Gordon: GOOD THING MIKE PENCE

WAS

WELL RECEIVED, BUT WHAT WILL BE

MORE IS

THE MOVEMENT OF THE CAPITOL TO

ISRAEL

AND THE ONLY SOVEREIGN NATION

OF THE

WORLD WHERE THE WORLD DOESN'T

RECOGNIZE

JERUSALEM AS A CAPITOL.

TO HAVE THAT MOVED WHAT WAS THE

PEACE

PROCESS.

HOPEFULLY FOR PALESTINIANS TO

GIVE UP

THEIR DREAM OF DRIVING ISRAEL

INTO THE

SIEGE AND THOSE THINGS SO WE

CAN

ACTUALLY FOCUS ON PEACE. WE'LL

BE RIGHT

BACK WITH MORE OF THE "700

CLUB" AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: WHEN BRUCE AND SHARON

BARNES

STARTED THEIR OWN COMPANY, THEY

WERE

ONLY ABLE TO BRING A FEW

DOLLARS IN AT

A TIME.

TODAY THEY ARE WORTH MILLIONS.

HERE IS

THEIR TURN AROUND.

THEY ARE THE OWNERS OF A

CONSTRUCTION COMPANY.

THEY STARTED MORE THAN 30 YEARS

AGO

DOING SMALL RESIDENTIAL JOBS.

THE FIRST JOB WE HAD AT BG

CONSTRUCTION WAS A $200 JOB.

BUSINESS WAS SLOW AND SOON THEY

WERE IN

DEBT.

FIRST WE WERE YOUNG AND HAD

YOUNG

CHILDREN AND IT WAS WEEK TO

WEEK TO PAY

FOR BILLS AND BUY GROCERIES.

THERE WERE 7 DAYS IN A WEEK

AND 24

HOURS A DAY AND I HAD TO WORK

BECAUSE I

HAD THREE DAUGHTERS AT THE TIME

AND I

HAD TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.

DESPITE THEIR TOUGH TIMES,

THEY GAVE

FROM THE BEGINNING.

GOD CONTINUED TO BLESS US

AND IT

BEGAN TO GROW.

FROM $5,000 JOBS TO BIGGER

AND

BIGGER.

THEY SOON BEGAN TO GET JOBS

BUT IN

1994, THEY LOST A CONTRACT.

I WAS LIKE, GOD, WE DID THIS

AND

THIS AND GOD MADE ME FOCUS.

HE SAID, YOU NEED TO REALIZE

THAT I

GAVE YOU THESE JOBS.

WE KNEW THAT GOD HAD JUST

REMOVED

THAT STRIVING WAS UP TO US TO

MAKE IT

HAPPEN, BUT HE WAS GOING TO

BRING US

THROUGH.

2 WEEKS LATER, BRUCE GOT A

CALL AND

OFFERED A SUBCONTRACTOR JOB.

THAT ONE JOB ALONE WAS TO MEET

MORE OF

HIS BUSINESS NEEDS FOR THE NEXT

3

YEARS.

THE MORE WE WERE BLESSED THE

MORE WE

GAVE.

THE COUPLE WERE BLESSED FOR

THEIR

GIVING OVER THE YEARS. AND THEY

WERE

ABLE TO GIVE MORE TO CBN.

THEY GO OVERSEAS.

IT'S AN OUTREACH THAT I CAN'T

DO

PERSONALLY, BUT I CAN PROVIDE

FOR THEM

TO GO.

TODAY THEY ARE DEBT FREE.

THEY HAVE TRUSTED GOD AS WELL.

HE CAN'T DO ANYTHING FOR ME

THAT HE

CAN'T DO FOR YOU.

JUST START SLOW.

IF YOU JUST START WITH A

SMALL

AMOUNT YOU WILL SEE HOW HE

CHANGES YOUR

LIFE.

Gordon: BRUCE AND SHARON GOT

A

WONDERFUL LESSON WHEN YOU

UNDERSTAND

GOD IS THE SOURCE AND

EVERYTHING WILL

FALL IN PLACE.

FROM CHAPTER 3, NO ONE CAN

RECEIVE

ANYTHING UNLESS GOD IS IN YOUR

PRESENCE.

GOD SAYS, I'M YOUR SOURCE. WHEN

YOU GET

THAT, ARE HE'S YOUR SOURCE,

LIFE GETS

REALLY EASY. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO

IS LIVE

IN ACCORDANCE WITH HIS

INSTRUCTIONS,

WHAT HE TELLS YOU TO DO, ARE

WHAT HE'S

LAID OUT IN THE BIBLE, WHEN YOU

DO IT

HIS WAY, THAT'S WHEN THE

BLESSINGS

COME.

WHEN MIKE'S SMALL BUSINESS

SLOWED DOWN,

HIS SALARY PLUMMETED AND HE

LOST

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. MIKE AND

HIS WIFE

HAD AN UNUSUAL WAY TO DEAL WITH

THE

SHORTFALL.

WITHIN A FEW MONTHS, THEY GOT

THEIR

MONEY BACK AND MUCH MORE.

SINCE 1971, MIKE AND LEE

BRIERY

SUPPORT CBN AND THEY DECIDED TO

INCREASE THEIR PLEDGE. THEY

WERE

WILLING TO CHALLENGE THEIR

COMMITMENT.

MIKE HAD A BUSINESS WITH

INSURANCE AND

SUDDENLY PEOPLE STARTED TO DROP

THEIR

POLICIES.

THEY DROPPED OUR INCOME

ABOUT $2,000

A MONTH WHICH WAS SUBSTANTIAL

BECAUSE

LIKE MOST PEOPLE WE HAVE CAR

PAYMENTS,

HOUSE PAYMENTS AND MONTHLY

OBLIGATIONS

AND INSURANCE AND LIGHT BILL,

WE HAD

ALL OF THAT.

IT WAS SCARY. I REALLY HAD

TO FIGHT

THE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS.

WE AREN'T GOING TO MAKE IT, WE

ARE

GOING TO LOSE EVERYTHING.

IT'S LIKE THIS.

YOU'VE GOT DOUBT AND YOU HAVE

THE

ANSWER. WHICH ONE ARE YOU GOING

TO

CHOOSE? I CHOOSE THE ANSWER.

MIKE AND LEE HONORED THEIR

PLEDGE

AND THEN HE GOT A PHONE CALL.

HE

ADOPTED A LAND YEARS EARLIER

AND NOW A

COMPANY WANTED TO BUY THE

MINERAL

RIGHTS TO IT.

TWO WEEKS AFTER THAT, THEY GOT

AN OFFER

ON A PROPERTY THEY WERE TRYING

TO SELL

OVER YEARS.

OVER A FOUR MONTH PERIOD, WE

WERE

OFFERED A MILLION DOLLARS.

WE WERE STUNNED AND WE WERE

JUST SO

EXCITED, BUT WE WERE JUST

AMAZED AT

WHAT GOD WAS DOING IN OUR LIVES.

NOT ONLY DID THE MONEY COVER

THEIR

PLEDGE, IT ALSO RESTORED THEIR

FINANCES.

IN THE MATERIAL WORLD YOU

CAN'T

EXPLAIN IT.

IF YOU ARE 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'S ALWAYS GOING TO HELP YOU.

HE'S GOING TO ALWAYS GIVE

THAT MORE

TO YOU THAN WHAT YOU GIVE TO

HIM.

SINCE THEN, THEY HAVE 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

BE ABLE TO SHARE WITH OTHER

PEOPLE WHAT

GOD CAN DO.

WHAT CAN GOD DO? WHEN YOU

START

THINKING THAT, ASKING THAT

QUESTION.

HOW BIG IS POSSIBLE?

HERE IS A PRINCIPLE FROM

PROVERBS

CHAPTER 11.

"IT IS POSSIBLE TO GIVE AWAY

AND BECOME

RICHER AND ALSO POSSIBLE TO

HOLD ON

TIGHTLY AND LOSE EVERYTHING.

YES, THE

LIBERAL MAN SHALL BE RICH BY

WATERING

OTHERS, HE WATERS HIMSELF. MIKE

AND LEE

WALKED THAT OUT.

YOU SEE THE RESULT.

IT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU

JUST

FOLLOW THE SAME PRINCIPLE.

I HAVE GOT SOME WONDERFUL NEWS.

SOME

EXISTING CBN PARTNERS WANT TO

CHALLENGE

OTHERS TO GIVE.

THEY WILL MATCH YOUR GIVINGS

DOLLAR FOR

DOLLAR UNTIL THE END.

$100,000. LORD, WE ASK FOR

BLESSINGS

FOR THIS AND ASK FOR INCREASE

TO COME

IN 305-0100 FOLD. LORD, BLESS

THOSE WHO

MADE IT POSSIBLE TO ISSUE THIS

CHALLENGE AND BLESS THOSE

WATCHING THIS

AND MAKING DECISIONS.

BE WITH THEM, ENCOURAGE THEM,

FOR WE

ASK IT ALL IN JESUS' NAME,

AMEN..

$100,000 IS THE CHALLENGE.

GORDON?

Gordon: ANTHONY O'NEAL IS A

FINANCIAL

CONSULTANT.

IT'S DIFFICULT TO REALIZE AFTER

A FEW

YEARS AGO ANTHONY WAS IN DEBT

AND

SLEEPING IN HIS CAR.

ANTHONY SPEAKS TO PEOPLE

AROUND THE

COUNTRY IN HOW TO SAVE MONEY.

HOW TO SAVE FOR YOUR MONEY.

IT WAS SOMETHING HE WISH HE

KNEW 15

YEARS AGO WHEN HE WAS IN

COLLEGE AND IN

DEBT.

TO ALL OF MY FRIENDS, THEY

SAID,

YOU'VE GOT SOME MONEY AND

BEFORE YOU

KNEW IT, I WAS WITHIN $25,000

IN DEBT.

HE WAS STILL ABLE TO MAKE

THE

MINIMUM PAYMENTS EVERY MONTH.

AS LONG AS I MADE THE SMALL

PAYMENTS, I WILL BE ALL RIGHT.

THEN HE LOST HIS SCHOLARSHIP

AND HAD

TO LEAVE SCHOOL AND THEN AFTER

HE LOST

HIS JOB AS WELL. AS TO HIS

FRIENDS HE

WAS TRYING TO IMPRESS, THEY

WERE NO

WHERE TO BE FOUND.

THE FRAT BROTHERS I TRIED TO

REACH

WERE NO WHERE TO BE FOUND. MY

FATHER

AFTER WE GOT INTO AN ARGUMENT,

HE SAID,

NO, YOU ARE GOING TO FIX THIS.

BEFORE LONG, HE WAS IN THE

BACKSEAT

OF HIS CAR.

I'M HOMELESS IN MY CAR.

IT'S NOT BECAUSE OF MY FRIENDS

OR MY

PARENTS.

IT'S BECAUSE OF ME. I REMEMBER

WASHING

MYSELF IN THE BACK OF MY CAR.

THAT'S WHEN MY WHOLE LIFE JUST

SHIFTED

RIGHT THERE.

1 DAY I SAID, IT'S NOT THE

WORLD'S

FAULT, ANTHONY.

YOUR FRIENDS DIDN'T FORCE YOU

TO DO

THAT.

YOU WANTED THAT, YOU WANTED TO

PLEASE

THEM.

ANTHONY WENT HOME AND MADE

THINGS

RIGHT WITH HIS PARENTS.

HE GOT A JO BE IN COLLECTIONS

AND

STOPPED SAVING FRIVOLOUSLY.

HE THEN STARTED PAYING TITHES.

THE BIBLE SAYS IT'S BEST TO

GIVE

THAN TO RECEIVE. I STARTED

LIVING AND

TEACHING THAT PHILOSOPHY THEN I

STARTED

SEEING GOD OPEN A LOT OF DOORS.

THAT'S WHEN ANTHONY SAYS HE

FOUND

HIS TRUE FASHION. TEACHING

PEOPLE HOW

TO MANAGE MONEY.

AT THE TIME HE JOINED DAVE

RAMSEY'S

TEAM.

ANTHONY O'NEAL JOINS US.

IN THE PAST FEW YEARS, HIS

INCOME

HAS TRIPLED. HE SAYS IT'S

BETTER TO

MAKE WISE CHOICES AND GIVING.

ANTHONY

HAS BOUGHT A HOME OF HIS OWN

AND PLANS

TO PAY IT OFF WITHIN A FEW

YEARS.

YOU NEED TO TITHES AND GIVE

YOUR

BLESSINGS.

IT WILL BLESS YOU THROUGHOUT

YOUR

ENTIRE LIVES.

FROM MATTHEW 25, THOSE WHO

SHARE

WHAT THEY ARE GIVEN, EVEN MORE

WILL BE

GIVEN.

THOSE WHO DO NOTHING, EVEN THE

LITTLE

THEY HAVE WILL BE TAKEN AWAY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS FOLLOW

THE SAME

PRINCIPLES. IF YOU WANT TO

START A LIFE

OF GIVING, THIS IS NOT SOME

SLOT

MACHINE UP IN THE SKY.

THIS IS SOMETHING WHERE YOU

SAY, I'M

GOING TO CHANGE MY BEHAVIOR,

I'M GOING

TO DO IT CONSISTENTLY.

I'M GOING TO DO IT REPEATEDLY

OVER THE

COURSE OF A LIFETIME.

THAT'S WHEN THE RESULTS COME IN.

BECAUSE IF YOU LIVE WITHIN YOUR

MEANS,

YOU ARE NOT INTO CONSUMER DEBT.

YOU TITHE, YOU SAVE, THOSE ARE

THE

PRINCIPLES.

IT'S REALLY EASY. IF YOU WANT

TO DO

THAT, CALL US NOW.

Terry: ERIKA IS JUST A SINGLE

MOM

GOING TO WORK. SHE HAD A TOUGH

TIME

PUTTING FOOD ON THE TABLE.

BUT SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT

THAT AFTER THE HELP SHE GOT

FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING".

ERIKA AND JEREMIAH LOVE

GOING TO

CLASSES TOGETHER.

LAST YEAR HE COMPETED AND SO

FAR SO

GOOD.

ERIKA DECIDED TO HOME SCHOOL

HER SON SO

HE CAN KEEP CENTERED OR GOD.

MY MOM I LOVE HER A LOT.

I AM HOME SCHOOLED BECAUSE MY

MOM CAN

TEACH ME.

EVERYTHING HE LEARNS IS FROM

GOD'S

WORD, AND WE GO TO CHURCH AND

JEREMIAH

DOESN'T COMPLAIN.

HE LOVES ME.

IS A REAL BLESSING TO KNOW

THAT THE

LORD IS WORKING IN HIS HEART

AND IN HIS

LIFE.

SHE WORKS LONG HOURS TO

PROVIDE FOR

HER SON.

I'M A SINGLE MOM, I HAVE TO

WORK TWO

JOBS.

I WORK FOR PARKS AND RECREATION

AND

THEN I WORK FOR GYMNASTICS

WHICH I'M A

COACH.

FINANCES ARE VERY TIGHT AND

IT'S A

DEFINITE STRUGGLE.

SHE PRAYS TO GOD.

I SPENT MANY NIGHTS IN MY

ROOM

PRAYING TO GOD.

MANY TIMES I HAVE TO SAY,

OKAY, WE

ARE GOING TO EAT TODAY OR WE

ARE GOING

TO HAVE GAS TO GET TO WORK

TODAY.

USUALLY WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO

IT, I

HAVE TO CHOOSE GAS BECAUSE IF I

CAN'T

GO TO WORK, THERE IS NO OTHER

INCOME

COMING IN.

IT'S HARD TO REALIZE THAT FOOD

IS IN

THE CABINET AND RUNNING OUT AND

THERE

IS NO MORE MONEY TO BUY FOOD TO

REPLACE

IT.

WHEN SARAH TOLD HER ABOUT

"OPERATION

BLESSING".

I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT

FOOD

WITH "OPERATION BLESSING".

I NOT ONLY LEAVE WITH MY TRUNK

FULL OF

GROCERIES, BUT I LEAVE WITH MY

HEART

FULL OF LOVE.

HAVING BEING ABLE TO PUT

FOOD ON HER

TABLE IS A BLESSING.

WITH "OPERATION BLESSING" SO

MANY

FAMILIES CAN BE HELPED. NOT

ONLY ARE

YOU FEEDING FAMILIES, BUT YOU

ARE

FEEDING THEIR SPIRIT.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING TO

"OPERATION

BLESSING" AND BLESSING MY

AS A FORMER MARINE, FRANK

FOSTER AND

HIS WIFE HIROKO HAVE BEEN

STATIONED

HERE OVERSEAS.

HE'S DONE BUT THEY ARE HELPING

AROUND

THE WORLD BECAUSE OF A

PARTNERSHIP THEY

BEGAN MORE THAN 40 YEARS AGO.

DURING FRANK FOSTER'S

40-YEAR

MILITARY CAREER.

HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE SETTLED

INTO THE

TOWN OF NORTH CAROLINA.

I WAS IN THE MARINE CORP AND

I WAS

DRAWN HERE BECAUSE WE WANTED TO

BE NEAR

THE MARINE FACILITY, ARE LIKE

THE PX,

THE HOSPITAL, THINGS LIKE THAT.

FRANK AND HIROKO MET NEARLY

50 YEARS

AGO WHEN FRANK WAS STATIONED IN

JAPAN

IN THE MARINES.

HE KNEW HIROKO WAS FOR HER WHEN

HE MET

HER.

I HEARD THIS VOICE AND IT

SAID YOU

ARE GOING TO MARRY THIS GIRL.

I HAD TO READ SOME SENTENCES

AND HE

SAID, YOU ARE GOOD AND I WAS

HIRED.

WITHIN 6 MONTHS, ARE FRANK

AND

HIROKO WERE MARRIED.

SOON THEY HAD THREE CHILDREN

AND HIROKO

BECAME A STAY-AT-HOME MOM. THEY

BECAME

PARTNERS FOR CBN.

I SAW WHAT CBN WAS DOING AND

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND

OPERATION HOME

FRONT. LOOK AT WHAT THEY ARE

DOING.

IT'S ENDLESS ON WHAT THEY DO

AND ALL

THE MONEY GOES TOWARDS THAT.

MY FAVORITE IS "ORPHAN'S

PROMISE".

EVERY TIME TERRY SHOWS WHAT

THEY ARE

DOING WITH EACH CHILD'S LIFE.

BY 1991 THEY MOVED FOR THE

FOUNDERS

LEVEL WHICH WAS 25% OF FRANK'S

INCOME.

I SAID, IT'S UP TO YOU. SHE

KNOWS MY

HEART AND I TRUST HER.

THE LORD KNOWS WHAT SHE'S

DOING. JUST

DO IT. JUST MAKE SURE I HAVE $2

FOR

LUNCH TOMORROW.

THEY ARE DOING EVERYTHING

THAT WE

COULD NOT DO WITH OUR MERE

PLEDGE AND

MONEY THAT WE GIVE.

THEY ARE JUST DOING SO MUCH FOR

THE

WORLD.

WHEN FRANK RETIRED FROM THE

MILITARY, THE FOSTERS REMAINED

FAITHFUL

AND TODAY THEY ARE A MEMBER OF

THE

CHAIRMAN CIRCLE.

WE JUST GO BY FAITH.

THAT'S THE ONLY THING HE

COMMANDS US TO

DO IS TO GO BY FAITH.

HOW HARD IS THAT.

TRY JESUS AND GIVING AND

THEN YOU

WILL BE BLESSED BECAUSE YOU

CANNOT GO

WRONG.

JUST TRY IT. IT'S THE ONLY

TIME WE

GET TO TEST GOD WITH OUR

TITHES, OUR

OFFERINGS, OUR GIFTS TO HIM.

IF YOU WANT TO START THAT, GIVE

US A

CALL.

TERRY?

Terry: WHEN MR. AND MRS. ZHOU

REALIZED BOTH OF THEIR

DAUGHTERS WERE

GOING DEAF, THEY SAVED FOR THE

HELP

THEY NEED.

BUT THEY WERE ONLY ABLE TO

AFFORD ONE

HEARING AID FOR ONE CHILD UNTIL

THEY

HEARD ABOUT CBN.

MRS. ZHOU ALWAYS GOT SCARED

WHEN IT

CAME TIME TO CROSS BUSY STREETS

WITH

HER TWO GIRLS AND CARRIED HER

YOUNGER

DAUGHTER YO YO.

I WAS SCARED TO ACROSS THE

STREET

WITH CARS BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T

HEAR.

BY THE TIME THEY WERE TWO,

THEY BOTH

HAVE GONE DEAF.

MY DOCTOR SAID THEY WERE NOT

ABLE TO

CURE THEM.

I WANTED TO DIE. I WISHED I

COULD GIVE

THEM MY EARS.

THEY WERE WORRIED THAT BOTH

GIRLS

WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO GO TO

SCHOOL, FIND

JOBS AND GET MARRIED.

THEY WOULD BE LOOKED ON FOR

THE REST

OF THEIR LIVES.

THEY USED THEIR ENTIRE

SAVINGS AND

COULD ONLY AFFORD HEARING AIDS

FOR

THEIR OLDER DAUGHTER AND THEY

WERE

SECONDHAND.

HEARING AIDS ARE LOUD.

THEY MAKE A SOUND LIKE CONSTANT

HIGH

PITCHED CHIRPING. IT MADE IT

HARD TO

LEARN ANYTHING.

THE COUPLE STARTED SAVING

FOR NEW

HEARING AIDS FOR BOTH GIRLS.

MRS. ZHOU

STARTED SELLING BOTTLE CAPS BUT

ONLY

MADE A FEW CENTS A DAY AND

STARTED

SELLING HER BLOOD.

HE TRIED TO SELL HIS HOUSE BUT

THERE

WERE NO BUYERS.

SOMETIMES I WAS AT MY WITS

END.

I COULDN'T HELP MY DAUGHTER.

SOMEONE TOLD THE ZHOUS ABOUT

CBN.

WE WERE ABLE TO PAY FOR THEIR

HEARING

AIDS.

THESE HEARING AIDS ARE GREAT.

THERE IS NO EXTRA NOISE IN

THEM. SO

BOTH OF MY DAUGHTERS CAN PLAY

LIKE

REGULAR KIDS. IT GIVES ME SO

MUCH JOY

IN MY HEART.

THE KIDS CAN GET GOOD JOBS,

GET

MARRIED, THEY WILL HAVE OPTIONS

IN

LIFE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

YOUR HELP.

IT'S BROUGHT US SO MUCH HOPE.

NOW, ALL

OF MY WORRIES ARE GONE.

Terry: IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE

THE

DESPERATION A YOUNG COUPLE LIKE

THIS

WOULD FEEL. BOTH OF THEIR

DAUGHTERS

DEAF AND NOBODY EVER TO SUPPLY

CLEAR

HEARING AIDS FOR THEM. YOU MADE

THIS

POSSIBLE TO HAPPEN AND YOU

OPENED UP

THEIR WORLD BECAUSE OF THAT AND

TAKEN

THAT DESPERATION OUT OF THE

HEARTS OF

THEIR MOM AND DAD.

HOW CBN IS

HELPING OUR NATIONS HEROES.

ISN'T EASY. THAT'S WERE HELP ON

THE

HOME FRONT GAVE THEM THE HELP

THEY

NEEDED.

PATRICK IS AN INFANTRY

SOLDIER

SCHEDULED TO LEAVE 6 MONTHS

AFTER THEIR

WEDDING.

I'M VERY PROUD OF IT.

IT TAKES A BRAVE PERSON TO DO

WHAT HE

DOES WHICH IS SCARE, BUT HE'S

ABLE TO

DO THIS FOR THE COUNTRY HE

LOVES.

I PRAY ALL THE TIME THAT

SHE'S SAFE,

I PRAY THAT HE KEEPS ME SAFE AS

WELL. I

FOUND THAT HE HAS BEEN THERE

SEVERAL

TIMES.

GOD PLAYS A BIG PART IN MY

LIFE AND

IN OUR RELATIONSHIP AND KEEPING

ME

STRONG.

HE KEEPS ME CALM AND HE KEEPS

ME GOING.

THEY ALSO PRAY FOR THEIR

FINANCES.

WITH PATRICK ON A SERGEANT

SALARY AND

CHRISTINA IN SCHOOLWORKING ONLY

PART-TIME, THEY KNEW THEY

DIDN'T HAVE

MUCH. PATRICK'S TRUCK NEEDED

REPAIR AND

THEY COULDN'T AFFORD TO FIX IT.

THE COUPLE COULDN'T BUY

FURNITURE FOR

THEIR FIRST APARTMENT TOGETHER.

IF I CAN'T GET THE APARTMENT

FIXED

UP AND EVERYTHING SHE NEEDS, I

DON'T

WANT HER TO SIT ON THE FLOOR.

I DON'T WANT HER TO NEED

ANYTHING

EXCEPT GOING TO SCHOOL.

THEY KNEW ABOUT THEIR

FINANCIAL

STRESS AND CONTACTED CBN AND

HELP ON

THE HOME FRONT.

WE STARTED PLANNING.

THEY INVITED THE NEWLY WEDS TO

THEIR

HOME AND STARTED TO TELL THEM

ABOUT

HELP ON THE HOME FRONT.

AND THERE IS MORE.

THEY TOOK US TO ASHLEY'S

FURNITURE

AND BLESS YOU ALL WITH -- BLESS

YOU ALL

SO, AS A NEWLY WED COUPLE GOING

DEPLOYMENT, YOU CAN PUT THAT

ISN'T THAT AWESOME?

[ LAUGHTER ]

THIS IS AWESOME.

YEAH. YEAH.

AFTER ARRANGING TO FIX THE

TRUCK,

THEY WENT TO ASHLEY HOME

FURNITURE TO

PICK OUT WHAT THEY NEEDED.

ASHLEY WAS

HAPPY TO GIVE A BIG DISCOUNT.

THEY WENT HOME.

Terry: DITHAPELO IS A YOUNG

GIRL

DOING GREAT IN SCHOOL. SHE'S

EVEN

PASSED ON SOME OF HER KNOWLEDGE

TO HER

PARENTS.

WHEN HER FATHER LOST HIS JOB,

SHE

TAUGHT HER FAMILY HOW TO PRAY.

THIS IS

COURTESY OF CBN'S "ORPHAN'S

PROMISE".

DITHAPELO WAS AT THE TOP OF

HER

CLASS, BUT 1 DAY HER TEACHER

NOTICED

SHE WAS ACTING SHY AND

WITHDRAWN. SHE

LEARNED THAT HER DAD LOST HIS

JOB AND

THEIR HOME. THEY WERE SLEEPING

IN THEIR

CAR IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER.

I WAS SO SCARED THAT NIGHT.

I PRAYED, JESUS, ARE HELP ME

NOT TO BE

AFRAID. I SLEPT IN THE BACK OF

THE CAR,

BUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT,

IT GOT

SO COLD, I COULDN'T SLEEP

ANYMORE. I

PRAYED TO GOD BECAUSE HE IS THE

ONLY

ONE WHO COULD HELP US.

HER DAYCARE CENTER IS A

BOARDING

SCHOOL SUPPORTED BY CBN'S

"ORPHAN'S

PROMISE". WHEN WE HEARD ABOUT

THE

FAMILY SLEEPING IN THE CAR, WE

INVITED

THEM TO STAY WITH US FOR A

WHILE. WITH

SOME HELP, THEY SAVED ENOUGH

MONEY TO

BUY A HOUSE.

AND WE TAUGHT HER MOM TO START

A

BUSINESS.

NOW I KNOW SOMETHING GOOD

CAN COME

OUT OF A BAD THING. WE LOST

EVERYTHING,

BUT NOW WE HAVE MORE THAN EVER

BEFORE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE WOULD HAVE

DONE

WITHOUT YOUR HELP.

THANKS TO THE HAND UP THEY

GOT FROM

"ORPHAN'S PROMISE", THEY NOW

HAVE A

HOME AND A STEADY INCOME.

AND DITHAPELO IS DOING GREAT IN

SCHOOL.

GOD SAVED US.

HE IS MIGHTY AND I AM HIS

PRINCESS.

I KNOW JESUS IS WATCHING OVER

MY FAMILY.

I LOVE BEING HERE AT SCHOOL.

I LIKE PLAYING WITH MY FRIENDS.

I AM SO HAPPY.

I'M VERY PROUD OF DITHAPELO.

SHE

TAUGHT US ABOUT PRAYER.

BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENED, I

RECEIVED

JESUS INTO MY HEART.

I KNOW GOD HAS MADE A WAY FOR

US."

THANK YOU, CBN.

BECAUSE OF WHAT DITHAPELO IS

LEARNING IN THAT PRESCHOOL THAT

YOU

MADE POSSIBLE, SHE WAS ABLE TO

SHARE

THAT WITH HER PARENTS, HER

PARENTS

BECAME BELIEVERS. EVERYONE OF

THOSE

CHILDREN THAT YOU SEE PLAYING

ON THE

PLAYING IS THERE BECAUSE OF

THAT ONE

THING. IT'S BECAUSE OF YOUR

GENEROSITY,

YOUR CARING. GOD EXPECTS US TO

GORDON?

Gordon: SURVEY SHOWS THAT

MOST PEOPLE

BECOME CHRISTIANS BEFORE THEIR

CHILDREN

ARE TEENAGE YEARS. THAT'S WHY

THE

PATTERSONS ARE SHARING

"SUPERBOOK" WITH

THEIR CHILDREN.

THE PATTERSON CHILDREN LOVE

"SUPERBOOK".

GETTING EXTRA COPIES FOR

KIDS WITH

THEIR BIRTHDAY PRESENTS. WE'LL

SLIP

THEM INTO THEIR GIFT BAG OR

WHEN KIDS

COME TO TRICKER TREAT, WE DO IT

THAT

WAY. OR GO TO THE LOCAL LIBRARY

AND PUT

THEM IN THE COUNTY'S

CIRCULATION SYSTEM

SO THEY CAN BE EXPOSED TO

"SUPERBOOK".

THE KIDS ARE LOOKING FORWARD

TO

"SUPERBOOK" NIGHT ON FRIDAYS.

THE KIDS LIKE "SUPERBOOK"

BECAUSE

THEY THINK IT'S ALWAYS FUNNY.

THEY

LAUGH AND EVEN MY 2-YEAR-OLD

WILL LAUGH

AT THINGS HE DOES.

THE DAD SAYS DON'T GO IN

THERE.

I LIKE THE SONGS.

SOMETIMES THERE ARE SONGS IN

THERE.

I LIKE THE QUESTIONS.

THEIR FAVORITE PART IS THE

EXPLORER

DVD.

THE INTERACTIVE PORTION OF THE

EPISODE.

OR AS SHELBY PUTS IT.

IT'S A DVD THAT SURPRISES

YOU WITH A

DVD YOU DIDN'T EVEN HAVE YET.

YOU DRAW THE KIDS IN THERE.

WE WERE DRAWING QUEEN ESTER.

HER PARENTS HAVE BEEN

SHARING

"SUPERBOOK" WITH THEIR KIDS

SINCE

HANNAH WAS 2.

IT BRINGS UP CONVERSATION

AND TALKS

ABOUT THE TRUTH. I WANT THEM TO

ALWAYS

COME TO ME AND GET THE TRUTH.

THAT'S WHY "SUPERBOOK" IS A

GREAT TOOL

FOR US AS A FAMILY BECAUSE I

FEEL IT IS

DEFINITELY GROUNDED IN TOOL.

I APPRECIATE THE CBN SUPPORT

BECAUSE

I TRUST THE VISION THAT GOD HAS

GIVEN

THEM. IT IS GOING TO MAKE ME

CRY. I

THANKFUL THAT THEY ARE RAISING

UP THE

NEXT GENERATION, THEY ARE

PREPARING A

FOUNDATION FOR THE NEXT

GENERATION.

ROXANNA MAKES A MEEKER

LIVING AND

SHE HAS TO SELL AND HER

CHILDREN WALK

WITH HER.

WHEN I MAKE SOME MONEY,

SOMETIMES MY

RO -- ROXANNA IS A WIDOW.

SHE WAS BEARING GETTING BY WHEN

WE KNEW WE HAD TO HELP HER.

"OPERATION BLESSING" GAVE HER

DREAMED UP.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING MY
