A Money Strategy For Tough Times

Donnie and Bonnie love CBN and with good reason!

Bonnie shares, “We’ve been married for 29 years and it’s been a part of our life for 29 years.”

Shortly after getting married, the couple became CBN partners. At the time, they owned a construction company and no matter what, they decided to tithe, even during the tough times.

Bonnie says, “It didn’t matter whether there was no work, or whether there was a lot of work. We continued to always tithe 10% and God was always faithful to provide for us.”

In the mid- nineties, the couple felt called to go into full-time ministry. Donnie closed his construction business. They used their savings to help with their living expenses. In the meantime, Donnie continued working as a driving instructor, but it was never enough especially during the holidays.

Donnie remembers, “On Christmas Eve we went to church and this younger couple, said, ‘Merry Christmas’ and handed us an envelope and we said, ‘Thanks.’  And we got in the truck and I said, ‘Hey, open that card up, Bonnie, and see what the Christmas card says.’”

Bonnie recalls, “And when we opened it up, there was $1,000 cash in there. And that was just what we needed to meet our bills for that month. This is what I’ve learned about the Lord, He loves the 11th hour. He is never late, but He is always on time.”

The couple continued tithing and giving to CBN. Just last May, they increased their giving to the 2500 Club level.    

Bonnie shares, “We were watching The 700 Club and Donnie and I looked at each other and said, ‘It’s time to increase. If we need an increase, then we need to increase.’ And that’s what we did. We love everybody there. We love the news portion; that’s one of our favorite things. I say CBN News is the most fair and balanced, and the truth.”

Donnie says, “I love Operation Blessing. They're going around drilling wells all over the world for people cause they can't drink clean water.”

Donnie works fewer hours and can devote more time to their full time ministry. They want everyone to understand why giving is so important.

Bonnie says, “God has proven himself over and over and over again. And you just can’t not trust Him. He’s so faithful. He’s never, ever let us down. And He is not going start now.”
