  • 00:03:09.979 --> 00:03:11.147
  • HIS JOY NECESSARILY,
  • 00:04:11.341 --> 00:04:13.476
  • WE'RE MAKING HIM HAPPY.
  • 00:04:18.047 --> 00:04:19.315
  • JUST A FEW YEARS AGO.
  • 00:05:59.482 --> 00:06:01.717
  • WE'RE A PART OF A FAMILY.
  • 00:06:09.192 --> 00:06:11.227
  • James: OUR FAMILY LIFE
  • 00:07:19.328 --> 00:07:20.596

  • IF I CAN ONLY GET
  • 00:08:12.315 --> 00:08:13.616
  • SITTING IN CHURCH.
  • 00:09:41.804 --> 00:09:42.838
  • BLOATED UP ON HIS STUFF
  • 00:09:48.978 --> 00:09:50.079
  • THEN YOU REALIZE,
  • 00:10:59.148 --> 00:11:00.416
  • I WANT TO KNOW,
  • 00:11:07.923 --> 00:11:09.425
  • "I'M VERY SHY."
  • 00:12:36.245 --> 00:12:37.413
  • IS VERY HARD.
  • 00:12:42.952 --> 00:12:44.019
  • THEY SAID,
  • 00:12:47.223 --> 00:12:48.290
  • "I JUST NEED TO ASK YOU,
  • 00:12:54.697 --> 00:12:56.699
  • FIRST JOHN THREE,
  • 00:14:02.298 --> 00:14:04.333
  • "IF YOU SEE SOMEONE
  • 00:14:09.605 --> 00:14:11.440
  • HE NEEDS TO BE AWAKENED.
  • 00:14:47.009 --> 00:14:48.077
  • MARRIED THERE,
  • 00:14:53.983 --> 00:14:55.084
  • WE'RE RIGHT NOW BEGINNING
  • 00:16:51.467 --> 00:16:53.102
  • TO DRILL WELLS.
  • 00:16:53.102 --> 00:16:55.270
  • THEY'RE $4800 EACH.
  • 00:16:55.270 --> 00:16:56.538
  • BETTY AND I HAVE COMMITTED
  • 00:16:56.538 --> 00:16:57.706
  • AND ASKED GOD
  • 00:16:57.706 --> 00:16:58.974
  • TO HELP US EVERY TIME
  • 00:16:58.974 --> 00:17:00.075
  • THE MISSIONARIES CALL
  • 00:17:00.075 --> 00:17:01.176
  • AND EVERY TIME
  • 00:17:01.176 --> 00:17:02.277
  • WE HAVE THE EMPHASIS
  • 00:17:02.277 --> 00:17:03.378
  • WE WANT TO DRILL A WELL.
  • 00:17:03.378 --> 00:17:04.446
  • GOD ANSWERED THAT PRAYER.
  • 00:17:04.446 --> 00:17:05.547
  • IT'S BEEN ONE OF
  • 00:17:05.547 --> 00:17:06.682
  • THE GREATEST JOYS OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:06.682 --> 00:17:07.850
  • WE HAVE MANY PEOPLE TELL US
  • 00:17:07.850 --> 00:17:08.884
  • WE MAKE THAT THE GOAL
  • 00:17:08.884 --> 00:17:10.018
  • FOR THE YEAR, TO DRILL A WELL.
  • 00:17:10.018 --> 00:17:12.187
  • THAT'S AWESOME!
  • 00:17:12.187 --> 00:17:13.455
  • SOME OF YOU SAY,
  • 00:17:13.455 --> 00:17:14.656
  • "JAMES, YOU DON'T KNOW HOW
  • 00:17:14.656 --> 00:17:15.757
  • MUCH I'D LIKE TO DO THAT."
  • 00:17:15.757 --> 00:17:16.792
  • I BELIEVE YOU.
  • 00:17:16.792 --> 00:17:17.993
  • BUT DO YOU KNOW MOST OF THE
  • 00:17:17.993 --> 00:17:19.128
  • INCOME TO HELP DRILL WELLS
  • 00:17:19.128 --> 00:17:20.295
  • COMES FROM PEOPLE
  • 00:17:20.295 --> 00:17:21.530
  • WHO GIVE $48?
  • 00:17:21.530 --> 00:17:22.865
  • WE'VE SAID THAT BASICALLY
  • 00:17:22.865 --> 00:17:23.966
  • GIVES TEN PEOPLE WATER
  • 00:17:23.966 --> 00:17:25.167
  • THE REST OF THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:17:25.167 --> 00:17:26.535
  • YOU CAN MULTIPLY THAT BY THREE
  • 00:17:26.535 --> 00:17:27.936
  • AND YOU'VE GOT $144
  • 00:17:27.936 --> 00:17:29.204
  • AND YOU JUST GAVE
  • 00:17:29.204 --> 00:17:30.439
  • 30 PEOPLE WATER FOR LIFE.
  • 00:17:30.439 --> 00:17:31.773
  • I USE THOSE NUMBERS
  • 00:17:31.773 --> 00:17:34.143
  • TO SHOW THE IMPACT IT MAKES,
  • 00:17:34.143 --> 00:17:35.711
  • TO KNOW THAT EVERYONE
  • 00:17:35.711 --> 00:17:36.945
  • HAS A PART,
  • 00:17:36.945 --> 00:17:39.248
  • EVERYONE CAN HAVE A PART,
  • 00:17:39.248 --> 00:17:41.150
  • THERE IS NO GIFT TOO SMALL.
  • 00:17:41.150 --> 00:17:42.451
  • I DON'T THINK
  • 00:17:42.451 --> 00:17:43.619
  • IF YOU'VE BEEN BLESSED BY GOD,
  • 00:17:43.619 --> 00:17:44.820
  • THERE'S ANY GIFT
  • 00:17:44.820 --> 00:17:46.088
  • YOU COULD GIVE TOO LARGE.
  • 00:17:46.088 --> 00:17:47.256
  • WOULD YOU RIGHT NOW
  • 00:17:47.256 --> 00:17:49.091
  • GO AND GET YOUR BANKCARD?
  • 00:17:49.091 --> 00:17:50.192
  • IF YOU WANT TO WRITE A CHECK,
  • 00:17:50.192 --> 00:17:51.627
  • BY THE WAY, MAKE IT TO LIFE ,
  • 00:17:51.627 --> 00:17:52.995
  • THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE GIVING.
  • 00:17:52.995 --> 00:17:54.196
  • BUT CALL US AND TELL US
  • 00:17:54.196 --> 00:17:55.931
  • YOU'RE PUTTING IT IN THE MAIL.
  • 00:17:55.931 --> 00:17:57.332
  • IF YOU GET THE BANKCARD,
  • 00:17:57.332 --> 00:17:58.500
  • YOU CAN GO ONLINE
  • 00:17:58.500 --> 00:17:59.668
  • OR YOU DIAL THAT NUMBER;
  • 00:17:59.668 --> 00:18:00.769
  • THAT'S A PRAYER LINE,
  • 00:18:00.769 --> 00:18:01.904
  • OTHERS WILL BE CALLING
  • 00:18:01.904 --> 00:18:03.038
  • TO GET PRAYER.
  • 00:18:03.038 --> 00:18:04.239
  • BUT WOULD YOU CALL
  • 00:18:04.239 --> 00:18:06.074
  • TO BE AN ANSWER TO PRAYER?
  • 00:18:06.074 --> 00:18:07.242
