700 Club Films Broken Chains for Their TV Show

On April 26th and 27th Broken Chains was filmed by the 700 Club for their world wide TV program. On the 26th they filmed us at our regular Wednesday Night Homeless Outreach and then on the 27th they interviewed Pastor Cody; then went with him to visit the homeless corridor downtown and hand out hamburgers, toiletries, socks and water. We are very appreciative of their interest in Broken Chains. Thanks to the 700 Club!!

The 700 Club is a live television program that airs each weekday. It is produced before a studio audience at the broadcast facilities of The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) in Virginia Beach, Virginia. On the air continuously since 1966, it is one of the longest-running programs in broadcast history. The program is hosted by Pat Robertson, Terry Meeuwsen, and Gordon Robertson, with news anchor John Jessup. The 700 Club is a mix of news and commentary, interviews, feature stories, and Christian ministry.

The 700 Club can be seen in 96 percent of the homes in the U.S. and is carried on ABC Family cable network, FamilyNet, Trinity Broadcasting Network, plus numerous local U.S. television stations, and is seen daily by approximately one million viewers. CBN International maintains 15 television production centers around the world that create indigenous versions of The 700 Club and other Christian programs in 39 languages. CBN International programs are broadcast in 138 countries to an estimated yearly viewing audience of 360 million people.

The mission of CBN and its affiliated organizations is to prepare the United States of America and the nations of the world for the coming of Jesus Christ and the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth. Our ultimate goal is to achieve a time in history when “the knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.”

Other Highlights

Pastor Cody plays in the 2017 IREM annual golf tournament

On April 28th Pastor Cody played in the annual IREM (Institute of Real Estate Management) golf tournament at the Siena Golf Club. IREM, as mentioned in earlier newsletters, has selected to support Broken Chains as their community project for 2017.

Pastor Cody and his close friend, Kenny Atchison, had a wonderful time at the event. Kenny won a trophy for the longest drive. Pastor Cody was able to connect with many local men and women in the real estate environment. After the golf tournament, a luncheon and silent auction was held.

Just for interest sake, Pastor Cody says that while they were golfing, everyone saw lots & lots & lots of rabbits on the course.

We want to thank Mike Reschke of RBM Building Services for sponsoring Pastor Cody and Kenny, and for all his help and information leading up to the tournament. We have been informed that a donation from IREM will be forthcoming and this is greatly appreciated!!! Thank you IREM!!!

Easter Baskets for Broken Chains

Impact Companies, again this year, provided 50 Easter baskets for Broken Chains to distribute to the needy children in Las Vegas.

Some were handed out on the street and some were given to Casa de Luz which is in an area of the city where many children go without things like an Easter basket.

We want to thank all those at Impact Companies for their generosity and kindness to those less fortunate!! God Bless you all!!

Pastor Cody baptizes Brian Jordan

On April 9th, Pastor Cody baptized Brian Jordan, who is our daughter Susie’s boyfriend. The baptism took place at Central Christian Church with many family members and friends attending. His son, Bryce, came in from out of town just for the event.

Brian had been attending classes at Central to prepare for his baptism. Congratulations, Brian!! We are so proud of you!!

Request to our readers:

We have ladies at church who are knitting hats, scarves & mittens for Broken Chains, to distribute next fall and winter. If anyone has any old yarn, or would like to purchase some yarn; we would love to have it to give to these ladies. Just drop it off at Hope Church, say it’s for Broken Chains and they will see that we get it.

If you live outside of Las Vegas and are interested in helping with this project, just send your yarn or check to Broken Chains, 2550 E. Desert Inn, #585, Las Vegas, NV 89121.

Thank you so much for helping out with this project!!
