The 700 Club - February 27, 2012

Dr. David Thompson is touching lives and souls with his medical ministry in Africa. Plus, Josh Kezer spent 16 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Read Transcript


I KNEW I WAS INNOCENT,

BUT I KNEW HE DIDN'T CARED.

THAT THE SHERIFF WAS GOING

TO DO EVERYTHING IN HIS

POWER TO MAKE SURE I WAS

CONVICTED.

Reporter: AND

CONVICTED.

EVERYTHING WENT NUMB.

Reporter: A MAN HEADS

TO PRISON.

I WAS WITH SERIAL RAPERS

AND SERIAL CRIMINALS.

Reporter: FOR A CRIME

HE DIDN'T COMMIT.

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: THIS SHOCKING

STORY, 17 YEARS FOR

SOMETHING HE DIDN'T DO

BECAUSE THE JUSTICE SYSTEM

WANTED TO GET HIM.

HEY, TODAY WE'VE GOT SOME

INTERESTING PROGRAMS.

WE ARE TALKEDING ABOUT

POLITICS, BUT WE'VE GOT THE

GREAT HORSESHOE FILE.

Terry: YOU MAY NOT HAVE

MET HIM YET.

Pat: TODAY YOU'LL MEET

HIM, ALL FOR 60 JAM-PACKED

SECONDS.

BOTH RICK SANTORUM AND NEWT

GINGRICH SPOKE OUT ON CHURCH

AND STATE AT AMERICA'S

RELIGIOUS HISTORY.

Terry: THE REMARKS CAME

AS SANTORUM A CHALLENGING

MITT ROMNEY IN HIS

HOME-STATE OF MICHIGAN.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE STAKES

ARE HIGH FOR MITT ROMNEY AND

RICK SANTORUM.

MITT ROMNEY ORIGINALLY LOST

THE LEAD IN HIS HOME STATE,

BUT NOW POLLS SHOW HE FOUGHT

HIS WAY BACK AND IS

VIRTUALLY TIED WITH

SANTORUM.

I'M PLANNING ON WINNING

IN MICHIGAN AND ALSO,

ARIZONA.

OBVIOUSLY, THAT WILL BE HUGE

FOR US, PARTICULARLY FROM

HAVING COME FROM SO FAR

BEHIND HERE IN MICHIGAN.

OBVIOUSLY, THE MOMENTUM IS

IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

Reporter: SANTORUM

DOESN'T APPEARED TO BE

CONCERNED.

HE MADE AN APPEARANCE AS NAS

NASCAR ON SUNDAY.

BEFORE THE RACE WAS RAINED

OUT, HE ADVISED THE DRIVER

TO USE HIS CAMPAIGN

STRATEGY.

I HOPE FOR THE FIRST 400

400 OR 300 MILES, HE SITS IN

THE BACK AND THEN SNEAKS UP

AND WINS THIS THING.

Reporter: THEY SAY THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE WON'T HAVE

MUCH USE FOR A FRONT-RUNNER

WHO CAN'T EVEN WIN HIS HOME

STATE.

SOMEWHERE ALSO CONCERNED HIS

CONTROVERSIAL STATEMENT ON

ABORTION.

I BELIEVE IN AN AMERICA,

WHERE THE SEPARATION OF

CHURCH AND STATE IS

ABSOLUTE.

Reporter: PEOPLE OF

FAITH HAVE NO ROLE IN THE

PUBLIC SQUARE?

YOU BET THAT MAKES YOU THROW

UP.

WHAT KIND OF COUNTRY DO WE

LIVE IN WHERE ONLY PEOPLE OF

NON-FAITH CAN COME INTO THE

SQUARE AND MAKE THEIR CASE.

THAT MAKES ME THROW UP.

Reporter: NEUT GRING

GRING SAID PEOPLE WITH

THE -- NEWT GINGRICH SAID.

WE HAVE A SECULAR ELITEST

WING THAT DEEPLY, DEEPLY

DISBELIEVES IN AMERICA.

THAT WANTS TO CREATE A

DIFFERENT COUNTRY, BASED ON

A DIFFERENT SET OF

PRINCIPLES.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHEN HE CAME IN AS

THE BELEAGUERED WAR HERO WHO

WAS BEING PICKED ON, HE LOST

AND LOST AND LOST.

WHETHER HE CAN COME BACK --

I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY

RESURRECTIONS YOU GET IN

THIS LIFE.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: ANYHOW, I THINK

SANTORUM HURT HIMSELF IN

THAT LAST DEBATE, WHEN HE

TALKED ABOUT I WON AGAINST

MY PRINCIPLES, I WON AGAINST

MY PRINCIPLES, AND I HAD TO

TAKE ONE FOR THE TEAM.

NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO

THAT.

I'M SORRY.

RICK IS A GOOD MAN, BUT IT

LOOKS LIKE THE GAP IS

CLOSING.

AND I'M NOT AN ODDS-MAKER,

SO I'M NOT IN LAS VEGAS, BUT

I WOULD GIVE ODDS THAT

ROMNEY IS GOING TO SWEEP THE

TABLE ON THIS ONE.

Terry: IT WOULD BE

FASCINATING TO SEE.

IT WOULD BE A HIT TO HIM IF

HE DID NOT.

Pat: IT WOULD BE, BUT

HE CAN RECOVER BECAUSE HE

HAS ALL OF THE STUFF GOING.

BUT I JUST I THINK SANTORUM

IS SO PASSIONATE AND

FERVENT, AND GOD BLESS HIM,

BUT UNFORTUNATELY, THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE IN THE

CENTER.

AND WHEN YOU GET TOO FAR OUT

ON WHAT THEY CALL THE CORE

EXTREME, THEY GET WORRIED.

LEE?

Reporter: AMERICANS

STILL PREFER SPENDING CUTS

TO TAX INCREASES IN THE WAY

TO TRIM THE DEFICIT.

56% STILL PREFER CUTS IN

GOVERNMENT SERVICES TO SH

RINK THE DEFICIT.

THE POLL SHOWS STRONG

SUPPORT FOR PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S IDEA TO RAISE TAXES

ON THOSE WHO MAKE A MILLION

DOLLARS A YEAR OR MORE.

BUT MANY AMERICANS SAY THEY

PREFER SPENDING CUTS BECAUSE

THEY THINK THE GOVERNMENT

WASTES FAR TOO MUCH MONEY,

AND THEY ALSO BELIEVE IT

ENFORCES TOO MANY RULES AND

REGULATIONS, PAT.

Pat: THEY'RE RIGHT.

I THINK ROMNEY HAS COME UP

WITH A VERY, VERY

INTELLIGENT PRO-SUPPLY SIDE

TAX PROGRAM.

CUTS ACROSS THE BOARD, ALL

KINDS OF INTERESTING

THINGS.

I THINK COMING UP AGAINST

OBAMA, HE IS GOING TO HAVE

THE EDGE.

I THINK WHEN HE STARTS

SAYING, DO YOU WANT YOUR

TAXES RAISED, PEOPLE ARE

GOING TO SAY NO.

AND ALL OF THIS CLASS

WARFARE IS NOT GOING TO

PLAY.

MARK MY WORD, COME THE

GENERAL ELECTION, OBAMA HAS

HANDED A WEAPON TO MITT

ROMNEY, WHO I PRESUME WILL

BE THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE.

LEE?

Reporter: TURNING

OVERSEAS, IRAN'S DEPUTY

DEFENSE MINISTER SAYS HIS

COUNTRY IS READY

TO, QUOTE,"WIPE ISRAEL OFF

THE MAP."

ACMAN TAHITI SAID ANY ACT BY

THE ZIONIST REGIME WILL

BRING ABOUT ITS

DESTRUCTION.

SO HOW ARE THE PEOPLE OF

ISRAEL PREPARING FOR A

POSSIBLE WAR WITH IRAN.

CHRIS MITCHELL HIT THE

STREETS OF ISRAEL.

Reporter: WE KNOW IRAN

POSSESS AN EXTRA THREAT TO

ISRAEL.

BUT WHAT ARE THE ISRAELIS

THINKING?

WE CAME HERE TO THE HEART OF

JERUSALEM TO FIND OUT.

WHEN YOU LIVE IN ISRAEL

YOU SEE THINGS A LITTLE

DIFFERENTLY THAN WHEN YOU

DID WHEN WE LIVED IN THE

UNITED STATES.

WHEN YOU LIVE IN THE UNITED

STATES, YOU EXPECT EVERYONE

TO ACT IN A NORMAL, RATIONAL

MATTER, BUT WHEN YOU LIVE IN

ISRAEL, PEOPLE DON'T

NECESSARILY ACT THAT WAY.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

THINK ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON

BETWEEN ISRAEL AND IRAN?

IRAN IS THE BIGGEST

PROBLEM IN THE WORLD.

Reporter: OWNER --

IRONICALLY, THEY ARE

CONCERNED ABOUT OUTSET

THREATS.

THIS IS JUST NON-STOP

CHAOS AND WAR.

BUT I THINK IT IS ONE OF THE

COUNTRY'S STRENGTHS.

YOU AND I COULD STAND BACK

FROM A DISTANCE AND SAY,

WHAT, ARE THESE PEOPLE

CRAZY?

BUT THIS COUNTRY WOULD NOT

ACHIEVE THEIR BEST THINGS

THEY HAD IF PEOPLE SPENT

THEIR HOURS WORRYING ABOUT

THE NEXT ATTACK OR NEXT

THREAT.

Reporter: THEY HAVE

FORMED EVACUATION PACTS AND

ASKED ISRAEL TO SUPPLY THEM

AND THEIR FAMILIES WITH GAS

MASKS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT

ISRAEL AND IRAN?

FIRST THEY NEED TO EAT

SANDWICHES.

Reporter: AFTER THE

SANDWICHES, THEN WHAT?

ONLY BOMBING.

BOMBING.

I'M PREPARED.

Reporter: AND ARE YOU

DOING ANYTHING PERSONALLY TO

PREPARE?

NO.

I TRUST GOD.

HAVE A GOOD EVENING.

Reporter: OKAY.

ARE YOU GETTING READY IN ANY

WAY?

I THINK ISRAELIS ARE

READY.

WE HAVE THE WAY TO PROTECT

ITSELF.

WE JUST NEED TO GET THE

DECISION TO DO IT.

BECAUSE EVERYONE -- SOMEONE

SAID LIKE THIS, SOMEONE SAID

WE SHOOT, AND SOMEONE SAYS

WE SHOOT, WE JUST GET THE

DECISION AND TO DO IT.

WHAT IS GOING TO BE, GOD IS

GOING TO HELP US.

BUT WE HAVE THE WAY TO

PROTECT OURSELVES.

Reporter: HOW AND WHEN

ISRAEL PROTECTS ITSELF

REMAINS TO BE SEEN, BUT MANY

ISRAELIS WE TALKED TO DON'T

THINK WAR IS FAR AWAY.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Reporter: LIFE GOES ON,

PAT.

Pat: IT SURE DOES.

THEY'RE SO AMAZING OVER

THERE, IN THE MIDDLE OF

WAR.

BUT THEY'RE FACING 40,000 TO

60,000 ROCKETS UP ON THE

NORTH BORDER.

AND I KNOW IRAN IS A LOT OF

BLUSTER.

YOU FIND THOSE ARAB

COUNTRIES, THEY'RE SO

BLUSTER, THE MOTHER OF ALL

WARS AND ALL OF THAT STUFF.

THAT'S JUST THE WAY THEY

TALK.

IT'S OVER THE TOP.

AND THIS IS PART OF THE

RHETORIC THAT YOU HAVE IN

THE MIDDLE EAST, SO YOU HAVE

TO DISCOUNT IT.

BUT I THINK YOU CAN'T

DISCOUNT BUT SO MUCH THAT

THE IRANIANS HONEST TO

GOODNESS WANT TO DESTROY

ISRAEL.

THAT'S THEIR GOAL.

THEY WANT TO WIPE ISRAEL OFF

THE MAP.

THAT'S WHAT THEIR LEADER HAS

SAID.

AND ISRAEL HAS NO CHOICE BUT

TO BELIEVE HIM AND TO ACT

ACCORDINGLY.

AND I THINK ACT ACCORDINGLY

WILL BE SOME TIME BETWEEN

NOW AND JUNE, THERE WILL BE

A MILITARY STRIKE FROM THE

ISRAELIS AGAINST THE IRAN

NUCLEAR FACILITIES.

LEE?

Reporter: PAT, MORE

KILLING IN THE AFTERMATH OF

LAST WEEK'S ACCIDENTAL

BURNING OF QURANS IN

JALALABAD.

THE REVENGE FOR USE TROOPS

BURNING THE QURAN.

FOUR U.S. SOLDIERS ARE AMONG

30 PEOPLE KILLED IN THE

RIOTS AND ATTACKS.

U.S. MILITARY LEADERS AND

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAVE

APOLOGIZED TO MUSLIMS FOR

THE ACCIDENTAL BURNING OF

THOSE QURANS, PAT.

Pat: I THINK PRESIDENT

OBAMA SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO

US.

IT WAS AN AMERICAN SOLDIER

WHO GOT KILLED OVER THERE.

WE HAVEN'T KILLED ANY

AFGHANS.

THERE WERE BOOKS THAT HAD

WRITINGS IN THEM, THAT HAD

ALL KINDS OF LITTLE PLANS OF

HOW THEY'RE GOING TO DO

TERRORISM AGAINST OUR

FORCES.

SO THE TROOPS JUST PICKED

ALL WHAT LOOKED LIKE LITTER

UP AND PUT IT IN THE LITTER

BAG AND BURNED IT.

IT WASN'T SOME DESECRATION

OF THE PROPHET, BUT EVEN IF

IT WAS, SO WHAT.

SO WHAT?

DO WE GO AND RIOT IN A

CHRISTIAN COUNTRY BECAUSE

SOMEBODY BURNS A BIBLE?

YOU JUST THINK, COME ON.

BUT THAT'S THE WAY THOSE

PEOPLE ARE.

THEY'RE USING THIS AS AN

EXCUSE FOR VIOLENCE.

IT JUST SEEMS TO ME, AND

THIS IS ONE MAN'S OPINION,

WE OUGHT TO GET OUT OF THAT

COUNTRY.

WE HAVE NO BUSINESS BEING IN

AFGHANISTAN.

IT HAS NEVER BEEN PAS FIDE

BY ANY FOREIGN POWER.

IT BROKE THE PICK OF THE

RUSSIANS.

IT HAS BROKEN THE SPEAR

OF -- ALL THE WAY BACK TO

ALEXANDER THE GREAT.

WE SHOULDN'T HAVE OUR FORCES

IN AFGHANISTAN.

WE OUGHT TO JUST SAY, LOOK,

YOU'VE GOT A GOVERNMENT,

YOU'VE GOT A LEADER, YOU'VE

GOT AN ARMY, IT'S ALL YOURS,

AND WE'LL SEE YOU LATER.

AND YOU DECLARE VICTORY AND

YOU GET OUT.

THE TALIBAN IS GOING TO COME

BACK IN, AND THEY'RE ALREADY

NEGOTIATING WITH TALIBAN,

AND EVEN IF IT IS SO-CALLED

PEACEFUL, THE TALIBAN IS

GOING TO COME BACK IN AND

ESTABLISH SHARI'A, AND ALL

OF THOSE LAWS AGAINST WOMEN,

AND THERE IT IS GOING TO

BE.

IS IT GOING TO BE A THREAT

TO AMERICA?

PROBABLY NOT.

AND SO THE TIME IS GOING TO

COME TO SAY WE'VE HAD ENOUGH

OF THIS BUSINESS.

IT HAS WASTED TOO MUCH OF

OUR TREASURE, TOO MUCH OF

OUR FORCES.

TOO MANY YOUNG WOMEN ARE

BEING KILLED, TOO MANY YOUNG

MEN ARE BEING INJURED.

WE CAN'T HAVE IT ANYMORE.

LEE.

Reporter: THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD WON 58% OF THE

SEATS IN THE UPPER

PARLIAMENT.

THE al-NOOR PARTY WON 25%

OF THE SEATS.

THE UPPER PARLIAMENT DOES

NOT HAVE ANY LEGISLATIVE

POWERS, BUT SERVES IN AN

CONSULTING ROLE.

AN EGYPTIAN COURT PUSHES

BACK THE TRIAL OF 16

AMERICANS CHARGED WITH

CREATING UNREST.

THE TRIAL WAS SUPPOSED TO

GET UNDER WAY SUNDAY.

BUT THE JUDGE DELAYED IT

UNTIL LATE APRIL.

LAWYERS SAY THE DELAY MAY

PROVIDE MORE TIME TO FIND A

DIPLOMATIC SOLUTION.

THE AMERICANS ARE AMONG A

GROUP OF 43 PRO-DEMOCRACY

WORKERS FACING CRIMINAL

CHARGES.

THE SITUATION LEADING SOME

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO CALL

FOR AN END TO U.S. AID TO

EGYPT.

SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY

CLINTON SAYS AMERICAN

OFFICIALS ARE EVALUATING THE

LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN THIS

CASE.

CHURCHES WILL CONTINUE

MEETING FOR WORSHIP SERVICES

IN NEW YORK CITY PUBLIC

SCHOOLS WHILE THEIR LEGAL

CASE PLAYS OUT.

A JUDGE ISSUED A NEW

INJUNCTION THAT SAID, "IN

THIS COURT'S VIEW LOSING ONE

RIGHTS TO EXERCISE FREELY OR

FULLY HIS OR HER RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS IS A GREATER THREAT

TO OUR SOCIETY THAN A

MISUNDERSTANDING OF THE OUR

PREVIOUS LAWS."

THE CITY OF NEW YORK NOW

SAYS IT WILL FILE ANOTHER

APPEAL, PAT.

Pat: YOU WONDER WHAT IS

WRONG WITH BLOOMBERG.

WHY DON'T HE JUST SHAPE UP.

HE HAS MADE ALL OF HIS

MONEY.

HE'S A BILLIONAIRE.

HE HAS ALL OF THOSE SERVICES

THAT TELL PEOPLE WHAT TO BUY

STOCKS AND WHAT IS UP AND

WHAT IS DOWN.

WHY DIDN'T HE LAY DOWN THE

LAW?

THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

THERE IS NO QUESTION OF WHAT

THAT JUDGE SAYS IS CORRECT,

A MISPERCEIVED CONCEPTION OF

THE ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE.

GOD BLESS HER.

WHY WOULD THE CITY OF NEW

YORK APPEAL IT?

WHAT HAVE THEY GOT TO LOSE?

WHAT HAVE THEY GOT TO LOSE?

THEY'RE RENTING AN EMPTY

BUILDING TO A CONGREGATION,

AND THEY'RE RENTING TO OTHER

BUSINESSES AS BEFORE.

WHAT THAT IS SAYING IS THE

OFFICIALS IN NEW YORK AREN'T

FOR RELIGION.

THEY ARE ANTIRELIGIOUS.

AND BLOOMBERG IS SHOWING

HIMSELF.

HE IS ALL IN FAVOR OF

BUILDING A MOSQUE AT GROUND

ZERO, HE THINKS THAT'S

GREAT, BUT AS FAR AS LETTING

A CONGREGATION RENT AN EMPTY

SCHOOL BUILDING ON SUNDAY,

THEY DOESN'T WANT TO DO

THAT.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THAT

JUDGE.

LEE?

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING"

INTERNATIONAL LOST AN

IMPORTANT AND BELOVED MAB.

MEMBER.

COMEAR ASOBBI.

HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

CANCER.

HE DIED THIS PAST SATURDAY.

CUMMAR HELPED AN AVERAGE OF

30,000 PEOPLE A MONTH WITH

CLEAN WATER, MEDICAL

TREATMENT, AND DISASTER

RELIEF.

HE CAME BACK TO VIRGINIA IN

2007.

AND, PAT, WE PRAY FOR HIS

FAMILY AND THE STAFF AT

"OPERATION BLESSING."

HE WAS A BELOVED MEMBER OF

THAT STAFF.

Pat: HE WAS A BELOVED

MEMBER AND ALSO AN

OUTSTANDING PERSON.

I WAS WITH HIM IN INDIA.

I JUST LOVE CUMAR.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, WE HAD

A CONFERENCE CONCERNING

TRAFFICKING OF WOMEN --

Terry: A WEEK AGO.

Pat: A WEEK AGO.

AND TERRY WAS SITTING NEXT

TO ME, AND HE WAS RIGHT

ACROSS THE TABLE.

HE DIDN'T LOOK WELL AT ALL.

THEY SHOULD NEVER HAVE LET

HIM COME BACK --

Terry: BUT HE WAS SO

HAPPY TO BE OUT OF THE

HOSPITAL.

Pat: THEY SHOULD HAVE

GIVEN HIM MASSIVE VITAMIN

"C" AND YOGURT TO BUILD UP

THE I INTESTINAL FLURA.

BUT THE DOCTORS DIDN'T DO

THAT.

THEY SAID, YOUR CANCER IS

GONE.

YOU'RE RELEASED.

AND HE GOT -- I THINK THEY

CALLED IT SEPSIS.

BUT WE MISS HIM, AND OUR

PRAYERS ARE WITH HIS WIFE

AND FAMILY.

AND I JUST WANT TO SAY WE

LAMENT THE PASSING OF ONE OF

THE GREAT SERVANTS OF THE

LORD.

TERRY?

Terry: WE'LL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

AFTER THIS.

Reporter: TOMORROW...

I NEEDED A JOB, I LOOKED

IN THE PAPER, AND IT SAID,

MAKE 1,000 DOLLARS A WEEK.

IT WAS THE MONEY, HOW COULD

I REFUSE IT.

I THOUGHT I WAS ON TOP OF

THE WORLD.

Reporter: AND ANOTHER

ONE GOT HER OUT.

HOW ONE STRIPPER ESCAPED THE

NIGHT LIFE.

HE DIDN'T HAVE TO CHOOSE

ME, AND HE DID.

Reporter: TOMORROW ON

"THE 700 CLUB."

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, I SIT BEFORE YOU

AS A SURVIVOR OF CANCER.

I HAD PROSTATE CANCER SOME

YEARS AGO.

IT WAS SURGICALLY REMOVED,

AND I'VE BEEN CANCER-FREE

EVER SINCE.

MY WIFE HAD BREAST CANCER.

SHE HAD A MASTECTOMY OVER 20

YEARS AGO, AND SHE IS

CANCER-FREE, AND SO FOR

THERE WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL.

BUT NEARLY TWO MILLION

PEOPLE WILL BE DIAGNOSED

WITH CANCER THIS YEAR.

AND NOW THERE IS A PROMISING

NEW TREATMENT.

IT HAS A NAME THAT SOUNDS

LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF

SCIENCE FICTION.

BUT IT'S CALLED PROTON

THERAPY.

LAURIE JOHNSON HAS THIS

ENCOURAGING STORY.

Reporter: JEFF POWELL

AND HIS WIFE VICKI BELIEVE

THEY DODGED NOT ONE, BUT

TWO, BULLETS.

FIRST JEFF BEAT PROSTATE

CANCER, AND BECAUSE HE CHOSE

THE TREATMENT KNOWN AS

PROTON THERAPY, HE AVOIDED

THE MISERABLE SIDE EFFECTS

THAT OFTEN ACCOMPANY

TRADITIONAL METHODS.

I LOOKED AT SURGERY, AND

I TALKED TO PEOPLE WHO HAD

IT FOR PROSTATE, AND THEY

HAD A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH

INCONTINENCE AND SEXUAL

MALFUNCTION.

AT MY AGE, I DIDN'T WANT TO

LIVE LIKE THAT.

Reporter: PROTON

THERAPY PATIENTS HAVE FEWER

SIDE EFFECTS BECAUSE IT ONLY

KILLS THE CANCER.

TRADITIONAL RADIATION WORKS

LIKE A BULLET, DAMAGING

HEALTHY TISSUE AS IT ENTERS

AND EXITS THE BODY.

PROTON THERAPY, ON THE OTHER

HAND, IS LIKE A FIRECRACKER

PLACED INSIDE THE TUMOR.

THE EXPLOSION OF RADIATION

DAMAGES JUST THE TUMOR,

NOTHING ELSE.

THERE IS NO NAUSEA, NO

BURNING, AND BEST OF ALL, NO

ORGAN DAMAGE.

EVERYTHING THAT WORKED

WHEN I STARTED MY TREATMENT

WORKS FINE NOW.

Reporter: THERE ARE

ONLY NINE PROTON THERAPY

CENTERS IN ALL OF THE UNITED

STATES RIGHT NOW, BUT

ANOTHER EIGHT ARE ON THE

WAY.

ONE OF THE NEWEST TREATMENT

FACILITIES IS THIS ONE IN

HAMPTON, VIRGINIA.

THIS LOCATION WAS CHOSEN IN

PART BECAUSE THIS AREA OF

THE COUNTRY LEADS THE NATION

IN PROSTATE CANCER DEATHS.

I'M HALF WAY THROUGH THE

THERAPY NOW, THE TREATMENT

RIGHT NOW, AND IT HAS BEEN A

PRETTY GOOD EXPERIENCE.

Reporter: 45-YEAR-OLD

CRAIG FIELDINGS CHOSE PROTON

THERAPY TO TREAT HIS

PROSTATE CANCER.

HE HAS COME HERE MONDAY

THROUGH FRIDAY FOR ONE MONTH

AND HAS ONE MORE TO GO.

THE COST OF PROTON THERAPY

IS ABOUT THREE TIMES THE

COST OF TRADITIONAL

TREATMENT, BUT MOST INSURES,

LIKE CRAIG'S, COVER THE

TREATMENT.

IT IS A PAINLESS

PROCESS.

THERE IS NOTHING TO IT.

I'M IN AND OUT IN 15

MINUTES, AND I CAN GO BACK

TO WORK.

Reporter: PROSTATE

CANCER PATIENTS LIKE CRAIG

AREN'T THE ONLY ONES WHO

BENEFIT FROM THIS

BREAKTHROUGH.

ACCORDING TO THE SCIENTIFIC

DIRECTOR, SIGNI CYNTHIA

KEPPEL.

WE HAVE TREATED BREAST,

LUNG, ESOPHAGEAL.

AND IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT FOR

PEDIATRIC PATIENTS BECAUSE

KIDS HAVE A HIGHER

PROBABILITY OF GETTING A

TUMOR FROM STRAY RADIATION

ASSOCIATED WITH MORE

CONVENTIONAL RADIATION

THERAPY.

Reporter: THE PRECISION

ALSO ALLOWS THE PROTON BEAM

TO CONFORM TO THE EXACT

SHAPE OF THE TUMOR.

SOME CANCER HAVE UP TO A 40%

BETTER CURATE THAN

TRADITIONAL TREATMENT.

BECAUSE WE'RE NOT

GENERALLY DELIVERING DOSE TO

SURROUNDING TISSUE, YOU CAN

RAISE UP THE DOSE TO THE

TUMOR IN SOME CASE, SO WE'LL

HAVE A PROBABLE HIGHER

SUCCESS RATE.

SOME OF THE HEAD AND NECK

CANCER RATES ARE LIKE THAT.

WHAT WE'RE REALLY TRYING TO

DO IS GIVE THEM A BETTER

QUALITY OF LIFE AFTERWARDS.

Reporter: DURING

TREATMENT, THE PATIENT LIES

IN A CUSTOM-FITTED BRACE ON

A MACHINE CALLED A GANTRY.

IN AN ADJOINING ROOM,

TECHNICIANS ACTIVATE THE

PROTON BEAM.

NO NEEDLES; NO KNIVES.

THIS IS A

BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT

THE GANTRY ROOM.

THE PATIENT IS ON THE OTHER

SIDE OF THAT WALL.

THIS MACHINE IS THREE

STORIES TALL, WEIGHS

90 TONS, AND COSTS

$8 MILLION.

SO THIS IS IT.

Reporter: ONCOLOGIST

ALLEN THORNTON HAS BEEN

USING PROTON THERAPY SINCE

THE EARLY '90s.

THIS IS A RESOURCE TO THE

COMMUNITY AND TO THE

NATION.

IT BUILDS UPON OVER 50 YEARS

OF THIS THERAPY, FIRST

COMMENCING IN SWEDEN IN

1957, AND HARVARD IN 1961.

THERE ARE MANY, MANY

GENERATIONS OF PHYSICISTS

AND PHYSICIANS THAT HAVE

WORKED TIRELESSLY TO BRING

THIS TECHNOLOGY TO ITS

CURRENT FRUITION.

Reporter: THAT WORK

MEANS AN ANSWER TO PRAYER

FOR CANCER PATIENTS WHO

QUALIFY FOR PROTON THERAPY.

THEY CAN EXPECT TO KEEP MORE

HEALTHY TISSUE WHILE

ESCAPING CERTAIN SIDE

EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH

CONVENTIONAL THERAPY.

NOW THAT IT IS OVER, IF I

HAD TO DO THAT AGAIN,

HANDS-DOWN, THAT WOULD BE

THE WAY I WOULD GO.

Reporter: LAURIE

JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THAT'S NEW TO ME,

LAURIE.

I APPRECIATE IT.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I

DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS COSTS,

BUT IT IS SURE WORTH IT.

THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT

THE CONVENTIONAL

TREATMENT -- THE

CONVENTIONAL WAY OF TREATING

PROSTATE CANCER IS

EXTRAORDINARILY PAINFUL.

I DID THE ART ARTHOSCOPIC

SURGERY, AND THERE WAS SOME

SIDE EFFECTS, AND I WON'T GO

INTO THEM, BUT LET'S ASSUME

MEN WOULDN'T WANT TO HAVE

IT.

MY BROTHER HAD RADIATION,

AND HE DIED.

WE'RE LOOKING AT IF THIS

PROTON THERAPY WORKS,

HALLELUJAH.

Terry: INDEED.

STILL AHEAD, WE'LL BE

ANSWERING QUESTIONS FROM OUR

VIEWERS.

JESSICA SAYS, "MY HUSBAND

AND I ARE IN OUR 20s, AND

WE ENJOY FOR GOING OUT TO A

NIGHT OF DANCING.

BUT IS IT WRONG FOR

CHRISTIANS TO GO OUT TONIGHT

CLUBS?"

WE'LL TACKLE JESSICA'S

QUESTION, SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Pat: OKAY, IT IS WHAT

YOU'VE LONG-AWAITED.

I WAS ABLE TO ACQUIRE A

HORSE.

HE'S A LUSITONER, AND HE

CAME FROM PORTUGAL, VIA

CALIFORNIA TO VIRGINIA.

HE IS 17 HANDS.

Terry: THAT'S BIG.

Pat: VERY BIG.

LOVELY, WONDERFUL HORSE.

IN MARCH, I CELEBRATE 82

YEARS OF LIVING, AND RIDING

IS ONE OF MY WAYS OF STAYING

YOUNG.

Terry: IT IS.

IT IS A PASSION FOR YOU.

YOU ARE A BIT OF A HORSE

WHISPERER.

Pat: THAT'S EXACTLY

RIGHT.

I'M GOOD WITH HORSES.

I'M GOOD WITH DOGS.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THIS

GREAT BIG HORSE NAMED UFOLO,

WHICH MEANS IN PORTUGUESE, I

BOAST.

WATCH HIM.

Terry: HE'S BEAUTIFUL!

Pat: ISN'T HE LOVELY?

Terry: WOW!

WOW!

Pat: WONDERFUL.

SO GENTLE.

SUCH A NICE ANIMAL.

Terry: HE SEEMS TO HAVE

SO MUCH FUN DOING THAT WITH

YOU.

Pat: HE DOES.

YOU GET ON HIM, AND HE WANTS

TO DO THAT STUFF.

THEY LIKE TO TROT.

YOU KNOW, THE THING ABOUT

HORSES, THEY'RE VERY

RESPONSIVE.

AND YOU GET TO THE POINT,

AFTER YOU'VE RIDDEN THEM,

THEY GOT RESPONSIVE TO WHAT

YOU WANT, AND YOU GET

RESPONSIVE TO THEM, AND YOU

GET TO BE, LIKE, A TEAM.

Terry: DOES THAT FIRST

TAKE A WHILE?

THEY HAVE TO GET USED TO

YOU --

Pat: HE LEARNS THE

SIGNALS.

BUT HE IS BEAUTIFUL.

Terry: HE REALLY IS.

Pat: AND GOING INTO 82

YEARS --

Terry: AND RIDING

STRONG.

Pat: RIDING STRONG.

LET'S NOT GO INTO THE

SUNSET.

I'M HEADING FOR 100.

Terry: YOU'RE STILL IN

THE RING.

PAT, THIS IS JESSICA WHO

SAYS, "MY HUSBAND AND I ARE

A YOUNG COUPLE, IN OUR

20s, AND WE LOVE TO

DANCE.

IS IT WRONG FOR US TO GO OUT

TO A NIGHTCLUB IF YEAR

GOD-LOVING CHRISTIANS?"

Pat: I SEE NO REASON --

THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT

DANCING.

THEN SHALL THE MAD MAIDINS

DANCE BEFORE THE LORD.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE

EXUBERANT AND EXPRESS IT.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE

NIGHTCLUB ENVIRONMENT.

I DON'T KNOW IF THEIR

SMOKING AND DRINKING OR

HAVING RUCKUS MUSIC, BUT THE

IDEA THAT YOUR DANCING AND

DANCING BEFORE THE LORD OUT

OF JOY, I SAY THERE IS

NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE HAPPY.

ALL RIGHT?

Terry: THIS IS ANGELA

WHO SAYS, "MY 8-YEAR-OLD SON

HAS BEEN MOUTHING OFF TO ME

AND HIS TEACHERS.

I'VE DISCIPLINED, YES, I

SPANKED HIM, BUT IT DOESN'T

SEEM TO PHASE HIM.

WHAT DO YOU THINK I SHOULD

DO?"

Pat: WELL, GIVE -- I

DON'T KNOW IF HE IS SMALL

ENOUGH, BUT ONE OF THE MOST

EFFECTIVE WAYS OF GETTING A

KID TO SHUT UP IS TO PUT HIM

UNDER A COLD SHOWER.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: A SHOWER DOESN'T

HURT HIM.

Terry: NO, IT DOESN'T

HURT HIM.

Pat: BUT IT SHOCKS

HIM.

Terry: BUT THE PROBLEM

IS, ONCE HE MOUTHS OFF,

YOU'VE GOT TO GET HIM FROM

THE PLACE HE MOUTHS OFF TO

THE SHOWER.

HOW DO YOU DO THAT IN AN

EFFECTIVE WAY?

I WAS THINKING A GOOD BAR OF

SOAP.

Pat: BARS OF SOAP AND

WASH THEIR MOUTH OUT.

I THINK WHAT HE REALLY NEEDS

TO DO IS FIND THE LORD.

HE NEEDS TO GET GOD IN

CONTROL OF HIS LIFE.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE HE GOT

THAT.

BUT IT IS A REBELLIOUS

THING.

THE REBELLION WILL LEAVE,

BUT YOU CAN'T GET HIM GET

AWAY WITH IT.

HE IS JUST TESTING YOU TO

SEE IF HE CAN GET AWAY WITH

THIS.

SOME MEN COME ALONG, AND

PFFFFF!

Terry: WHERE DOES HE

HEAR THAT?

WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?

Pat: IT COMES FROM

WITHIN HIM.

I GAVE MY WIFE A LITTLE DOG,

AND THE LITTLE DOG DOESN'T

LIKE WHAT SHE SAYS, SO THE

LITTLE DOG STARTS BARKING AT

HIM.

HE COMES TO ME AND STARTS

BARKING AME AT ME, AND I

RAISE MY HAND, AND HE RUNS

OFF.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN HE

DOESN'T DO IT TO ME.

IT IS REBELLION, AND IT IS A

FORM OF REBELLION.

AND THEY'LL GROW OUT OF IT.

YOU CAN LOVE THEM THROUGH

IT, BUT I THINK FIRM

DISCIPLINE IS THE WAY TO

GO.

FIRM DISCIPLINE, BUT NOT

BRUTALITY.

Terry: ERIKA SAYS, "WHY

DOES GOD BLESS SOME WOMEN

THROUGH PREGNANCY.

MEANWHILE, I'VE WAITED FOR

YEARS, SUFFERED THROUGH

MISCARRIAGES AND PRAYED?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW WHY.

MY WIFE AND I HAVE CHILDREN,

AND PEOPLE WOULD SAY, I JUST

SHAKE HANDS WITH HER AND SHE

GETS PREGNANT.

I DON'T KNOW.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE HAVE

ADOPTED CHILD, AND THEY

RELAX AND THE NEXT THING

THEY DO IS GET PREGNANT.

Terry: JONATHAN

SAYS, "I HAVE RECENTLY BE

DIAGNOSED WITH

POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS

DISORDER.

DISORDER."

Pat: THERE IS A DOCTOR

THAT TOLD YOU THAT.

CHEMICAL IMBALANCE -- THAT'S

WHAT CAUSES SOME OF THESE

THINGS.

I THINK THE FACT THAT YOU

HAVE A DOCTOR THAT IS

TREATING WHAT AMOUNTS TO --

WHAT DO THEY CALL IT,

BIPOLAR -- IT YAWF IT USED

TO BE SCHIZOPHRENIA.

BUT WHEN YOU HAVE THESE

THINGS, THE CHEMICALS IN

YOUR BRAIN -- IF YOU CAN GET

A CHRISTIAN PSYCHIATRIST WHO

UNDERSTANDS THE CHEMISTRY

AND CAN WORK WITH YOU ON

THAT, AND THEN IT'S

NUTRITION, VITAMINS,

EXERCISE, THE STANDARD STUFF

WILL HELP YOU COME OUT OF

THAT.

Terry: HE WANTS TO

KNOW, HOW DOES HE KNOW THE

LORD IS SPEAKING?

HE IS NOT TRUSTING HIS OWN

MIND.

Pat: IF YOU THINK

YOU'RE HEARING VOICES, JUST

REALIZE YOU'VE GOT A

PSYCHOTIC PROBLEM.

YOU DON'T NEED TO BE

THINKING YOUR HEARING FROM

GOD OR ANYBODY.

YOU DO YOUR THING AND USE

OBJECTIVE STANDARDS, NOT

SUBJECTIVE, UNTIL YOU GET

STRAIGHTENED OUT.

Terry: THANK YOU FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS.

WE'RE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD

RIGHT NOW WITH AN AMAZING

STORY, AN INNOCENT MAN WHO

WAS SENTENCED TO 60 YEARS IN

PRISON.

I LIVED WITH SERIAL

KILLERS AND RAPISTS, CHILD

MOLESTERS, THIEVES, LIARS

AND CHIEFS.

I HAD LITERALLY HAD MEN

GAMBLING HOW LONG IT WOULD

TAKE ME TO BE GANG RAPED.

Terry: FIND OUT WHAT

SET THIS MAN FREE WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK?

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

THE ADMINISTRATION OF

CRIMINAL JUSTICE IS

DIFFICULT.

IT IS DIFFICULT FOR THE

COURTS.

IT IS DIFFICULT FOR THE

LAWYERS.

IT IS DIFFICULT FOR THE

POLICE.

DO YOU WANT TO LET GUILTY

PEOPLE, CRIMINALS GO FREE,

AND NOT PAY FOR THEIR

CRIMES?

IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE THAT

THE NET ISN'T SUFFICIENTLY

TIGHT TO CATCH INNOCENT

PEOPLE AND SEND THEM TO

PRISON.

IT IS A DIFFICULT THING.

WELL, WE'VE GOT ONE STORY

FOR YOU RIGHT NOW OF AN

INNOCENT MAN WHO THE SYSTEM

HOOKED.

THEY BROUGHT HIM IN AND JOSH

KEYSER WAS CONVICTED OF

SECOND-DEGREE MURDER AND

SENT TO PRISON FOR SOMETHING

HE DIDN'T DO, CRIME THAT HE

DIDN'T COMMIT AGAINST A

WOMAN HE HAD NEVER SEEN IN

HIS LIFE.

Reporter:

NOVEMBER 1992, 19-YEAR-OLD

MICHELLE LAWLESS WAS FOUND

IN HER CAR IN BENTON,

MISSOURI, BRUTALLY BEATEN

AND SHOT TO DEATH.

JOSH KEYSER, AN 18-YEAR-OLD

GANG MEMBER WITH A TROUBLED

PAST, WAS ARRESTED.

THE SHERIFF AND PROSECUTOR

QUICKLY BUILT A CASE AGAINST

HIM, AND BROUGHT HIM TO

TRIAL.

THE ONLY PROBLEM: JOSH

KEYSER WAS INNOCENT.

I KNEW THAT THE SHERIFF

WAS GOING TO DO EVERYTHING

IN HIS POWER TO MAKE SURE I

WENT TO PRISON.

I KNEW I WAS INNOCENT.

BUT I KNEW THAT HE DIDN'T

CARE.

THE EVIDENCE SPOKE IN MY

FAVOR.

THERE WAS D.N.A. FOUND

UNDERNEATH THE VICTIM'S

FINGERNAILS.

THE F.B.I. ACTUALLY TESTED

THE D.N.A. AND EXCLUDED ME.

THERE WAS NO FINGERPRINT, NO

PALPALM PRINT, NO MOTIVE,

NO CONNECTION TO THE

VICTIM.

Reporter: IT TOOK ONLY

THREE AND A HALF HOURS OF

DELIBERATION FOR THE JURY TO

ARRIVE AT THEIR VERDICT:

GUILTY.

JOSH WAS SENTENCED TO 60

YEARS IN PRISON FOR A MURDER

HE DID NOT COMMIT.

IT IS STILL HARD TO THINK

ABOUT.

EVERYTHING WENT NUMB.

IN THE DISTANCE I HEARD

YELLING AND SCREAMING, AND I

REALIZED THAT AT THAT MOMENT

WHAT I WAS HEARING WAS

MYSELF YELLING I DIDN'T DO

THIS.

I DIDN'T DO THIS!

Reporter: BEFORE THE

TRIAL EVER BEGAN, JOSH

RECEIVED A BIBLE IN JAIL AND

STARTED READING IT.

HE SAYS HE RENEWED HIS

CHILDHOOD FAITH.

I KEPT READING.

KEPT READING THROUGH THE

SCRIPTURES.

AND WHAT WAS HAPPENING IS I

WAS FINDING MYSELF LIKE

KNOWING I ALWAYS BELIEVED

THIS STUFF.

I WAS LEANING ON JESUS

IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE HE WAS

MY BEST FRIEND.

BECAUSE I HAD NOBODY ELSE TO

TALK TO AT TIMES.

Reporter: THAT FAITH

BECAME HE ONLY SOURCE OF

HOPE AS HE ENTERED THE

MISSOURI STATE

PENITENTIARY.

ONCE LABELLED THE BLOOD

BLOODIEST PRISON IN

AMERICA.

I LIVED WITH CHILD

MOLESTERS, RAPISTS,

THIEVES.

Reporter: JOSH SAYS IT

WAS GOD WHO KEPT HIM ALIVE

AND GAVE HIM HOPE.

I LITERALLY HAD MEN

GAMBLING AS TO HOW LONG IT

WOULD TAKE ME TO BE KILLER

RAPED.

AND THE HAND OF GOD WAS ON

ME THROUGH THE ENTIRE

EXPERIENCE.

IT WAS AN AWFUL EXPERIENCE,

BUT I BECAME SOMETHING

DIFFERENTMENT I BECAME A

CHRISTIAN.

WHEN YOU HAVE CHRIST IN THAT

PLACE, YOU CAN SEE THE

SUNSHINE.

YOU NOTICE THE LIFE AROUND

YOU.

THAT IS THE BEAUTY OF THE

LORD.

LIVING IN THAT NIGHTMARE,

BUT LIVING IN PURPOSE WHERE

THERE IS NO PURPOSE.

LIVING IN PEACE WHERE THERE

IS NO PEACE.

FEELING FREE WHERE

EVERYTHING AROUND YOU IS

CONFINED.

Reporter: INMATES AND

CHAPLAINS ALIKE WITNESSED

JOSH'S FAITH AND THE

PERSECUTION THAT CAME WITH

IT.

IT WAS A CONSTANT BARAGE

FOR JOSH TO STAND SO STRONG

WITH HIS FAITH THAT GOD WAS

GOING TO DELIVER HIM FROM

THESE THINGS.

HE FOCUSES IN ON THE WORD

AND HE FOCUSES IN ON HIS

GOD.

AND HE STILL HAD THAT HOPE

WHEN IT SEEMED NO ONE ELSE

BELIEVED IN HIM.

Reporter: BUT AFTER TWO

FAILED APPEALS, THERE WERE

MOMENTS WHEN JOSH STRUGGLED

TO KEEP HIS FAITH.

I DID NOT WANT TO WAKE UP

ANOTHER DAY IN PRISON.

I WAS TIRED AND I HAD HAD

ENOUGH.

HE WOULD TELL ME QUIETLY,

I'VE GOTTEN YOU THIS FAR.

WHAT MAKES YOU THINK I CAN'T

GET YOU TO WHERE I WANT

YOU.

HE STARTED WHISPERING IN MY

HEART AND MY MIND.

FIVE YEARS FROM NOW, NONE OF

THIS IS GOING TO MEAN

ANYTHING.

Reporter: AROUND THAT

TIME, JANE WILLIAMS, FROM

"LOVE INC," A PRISON

MINISTRY, GOT JOSH'S CASE

REOPENED.

I WANTED TO BE DECLARED

INNOCENT.

AND GOD GAVE ME A PEACE

ABOUT THAT.

GOD WAS ABOUT TO SHOW OFF.

HE WAS ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING

THAT HASN'T EVERY BEEN DONE

BEFORE.

I KNEW THAT AND I BELIEVED

THAT.

Reporter: AFTER 16

YEARS IN PRISON FOR A MURDER

HE DIDN'T COMMIT, JOSH HAD A

NEW TRIAL.

THIS TIME BY CLEAR AND

CONVINCING EVIDENCE, HE WAS

DECLARED INNOCENT.

AN OUTCOME ONLY JOSH HAD

SEEN COMING.

I HAD SEEN GOD DELIVER ME

FROM SITUATION AFTER

SITUATION, PEOPLE THAT TRIED

TO ATTACK ME, BEAT ME, RAPE

ME, KILL ME, AND I HAD SEEN

GOD DELIVER ME TIME AFTER

TIME AFTER TIME.

HOW COULD I EXPECT ANYTHING

DIFFERENT.

AND THAT TIME CAME.

I'M VERY THANKFUL FOR WHAT

THE JUDGE DID.

I'M VERY THANKFUL FOR THE

ATTORNEYS AND THE PEOPLE IN

MY LIFE, BUT I'M VERY

THANKFUL TO GOD BECAUSE HE

GAVE THEM TO ME.

HE SET ME FREE IN MY SPIRIT,

MY MIND AND MY BODY.

Reporter: TODAY JOSH IS

A FREE MAN.

HE SURROUNDS HIMSELF WITH

PEOPLE WHO LOVE HIM AND HIS

FAITH.

TURN TO JESUS.

IN YOUR MOMENT OF

DESPERATION, TURN TO JESUS.

I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT

THE LORD IS THE LORD OF

HOPE.

AND THAT HE IS NOT

INTIMIDATED BY ANYBODY'S

PROBLEMS.

HE IS NOT SHOCKED BY YOUR

STRUGGLES AND SINS.

HE CAN HANDLE YOU YOU.

AND HE CAN HANDLE ANYTHING

YOU'RE GOING THROUGH.

AND HE STILL DOES MIRACLES.

AND ON OCCASION, HE REACHES

INTO A PRISON AND HE SETS A

MAN FREE AFTER 16 YEARS.

THAT'S THE JESUS THAT I WANT

PEOPLE TO KNOW.

Pat: WE READ IN THE

BIBLE ABOUT A MAN NAMED

JOSEPH, A YOUNG FELLOW,

RIGHTEOUS BEFORE GOD,

FALSELY ACCUSED BY A WOMAN

OF TRYING TO RAPE HER.

FALSELY ACCUSED AND PUT INTO

PRISON.

FALSELY ACCUSED BY THIS OWN

BROTHERS AND SOLD INTO

SLAVERY.

HE HAD EVERY REASON IN THIS

HEART TO BE BIDDER, AND HE

HAD EVERY REASON TO TURN

AWAY FROM GOD.

BUT HE NEVER GAVE UP ON THE

LORD.

AND THE LORD NEVER GAVE UP

ON HIM.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT

ULTIMATELY, JOSEPH BECAME

THE SECOND MOST POWERFUL

RURA RULER IN THE MOST

POWERFUL NATION IN THE

WORLD.

BECAUSE HE WAS TRUE TO GOD.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING

TO HAPPEN TO JOSH KEYSER,

BUT YOU KNOW HE HAS NOTHING

GOOD COMING OUT.

HE HAS BEEN TRIED IN THE

FIRE.

I THINK OF NELSON MANDELA.

HE WAS PUT INTO THE FIRE AND

FALSELY ACCUSED, AND THE

NEXT THING YOU KNOW IS HE IS

PRESIDENT OF SOUTH AFRICA.

GOD WILL TAKE YOU THROUGH

THE FIRE.

THERE IS NO TESTING THAT HAS

TAKEN YOU -- SUCH IS COMMON

TO MAN, BUT GOD WILL MAKE A

WAY OF ESCAPE THAT YOU WILL

BE ABLE TO BEAR IT.

OUT OF IT, SOMETHING GOOD

WILL COME.

I KNOW YOU'RE SAYING, THAT'S

EASY FOR YOU.

YOU'RE ON A TV SET, AND

YOU'RE GIVING ME ADVICE OF

HOW EASY THINGS WILL BE.

I'M TELLING YOU THE TRUTH.

GOD HAS SOMETHING GOOD FOR

YOU.

HE HAS SOMETHING GOOD FOR

YOU.

DON'T DISPAIR.

IN THE MIDST OF WHATEVER IS

HAPPENING TO YOU, GOD WILL

TAKE YOU THROUGH.

HE WILL SEE YOU THROUGH.

YOU WILL NOT GO UNDER FOR

GOING OVER.

YOU WILL NOT PERISH.

BUT YOU NEED TO PUT YOUR

HAND ON THE LORD.

NOW, THE THING THAT JOSH

DID, HE GAVE HIS HEART TO

JESUS.

I'LL ASK YOU RIGHT NOW,

WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR HEART TO

THE LORD AT THIS MOMENT?

YOU DON'T KNOW HIM.

WHATEVER IT IS, HOWEVER HARD

IT IS, HOWEVER YOU'VE BEEN

ACCUSED, HOWEVER MUCH

WITNESS HAS BEEN BORNE

AGAINST YOU THAT IS FALSE.

IN THE BOOK OF PROVERBS, IT

SAYS, "A CURSE WITHOUT A

CAUSE CANNOT REMAIN, CANNOT

LIE."

A CURSE WITHOUT A CAUSE.

AND YOU MAY HAVE BEEN

CURSED, BUT IF THERE IS NO

CAUSE -- RIGHT NOW, LET'S

COMMIT YOU AND THE PROBLEMS

YOU'VE GOT TO THE LORD,

RIGHT NOW.

PRAYER THIS PRAYER.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY

WITH ME.

PRAY OUT LOUD OR PRAY

SENTLY, BUT PRAY IT.

JESUS, YOU KNOW MY HEART.

YOU KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING

IN MY LIFE.

I CONFESS TO YOU THAT I'M A

SINNER, AND I NEED A

SAVIOR.

AND SO RIGHT NOW I SURRENDER

MY LIFE TO YOU.

I GIVE YOU MY LIFE.

AND, LORD JESUS, AT THIS

MOMENT, COME IN, TAKE OVER.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I

COMMIT MY CIRCUMSTANCES TO

YOU.

I COMMIT MY FUTURE TO YOU.

LORD, I ASK FOR MIRACLES.

LOOK DOWN FROM HEAVEN AND

WATCH OVER ME AS YOUR

SERVANT.

AND LEAD ME INTO THAT WHICH

YOU HAVE FOR ME THAT IS

GOOD.

I RECEIVE IT NOW, LORD, IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT YOU TO ACKNOWLEDGE IT

AND TELL SOMEBODY.

WE'VE GOT FOLKS AT THE

TELEPHONES, COUNSELLORS THAT

ARE THERE.

I'VE GOT SOMETHING CALLED "A

NEW DAY."

YOU JUST MADE A DECISION,

AND THAT'S A NEW DAY.

I WANT YOU TO CALL AND SAY,

I PRAYED WITH PAT.

I'M GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT.

I WANT YOU TO START PRAISING

GOD, WHEREVER YOU ARE.

THE DEPTHS OF PRISON -- I

WANT YOU TO PRAISE GOD AND

THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE IS

DOING FOR YOU.

EXPECT A MIRACLE.

1-800-759-0700.

CALL AND SOMEBODY IS HERE TO

HELP YOU.

WHEREVER YOU CALL AND

WHATEVER YOU DO, LOOK TO THE

LORD.

HE WILL TAKE YOU THROUGH.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, THE

LONE DOCTOR FROM A JUNGLE

HOSPITAL SHARES THIS STORY

FROM THE MISSION FIELD.

IT'S AMAZING.

DON'T GO AWAY.

Terry: FOR EVERY

250,000 TO ONE MILLION

PEOPLE IN AFRICA, THERE IS

ONE SURGEON.

SO FROM A YOUNG AGE,

DR. DAVID THOMPSON MADE A

VOW TO BE A SURGEON ON CALL

IN AFRICA, EVEN IF HE WERE

THE ONLY ONE.

Reporter: DR. DAVID

THOMPSON IS THE FOUNDER OF

THE PAN AFRICAN ACADEMY OF

CHRISTIAN SURGEONS AND RUNS

A HOSPITAL IN GABON,

AFRICA.

HE GREW UP IN CAMBODIA,

WHERE HIS PARENTS WERE

MISSIONARIES.

HE WAS JUST 14 YEARS OLD,

WHEN HE FELT GOD'S CALL TO

BECOME A DOCTOR.

I SAW A MAN DIE.

AND HE DIED FOR LACK OF

BASIC MEDICAL CARE.

MY FATHER TRIED TO TALK TO

HIM ABOUT THE LORD, AND HE

SAID TO MY FATHER, DON'T

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR GOD.

JUST HELP ME.

FROM THAT MOMENT ON, I

DETERMINED THAT I WANTED TO

HELP PEOPLE SO THAT I COULD

TALK TO THEM ABOUT GOD.

Reporter: OVER THE

YEARS, DR. THOMPSON WORKED

TO PUT THAT DETERMINATION

INTO ACTION.

AND TODAY HIS ORGANIZATION

TRAINS SURGEONS TO FILL THE

INCREDIBLE NEED IN AFRICA.

AT THE HOSPITAL, THE

DOCTORS, ALONG WITH THE

STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS, ARE

MEETING THEIR PATIENTS'

PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL

NEEDS.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB" DR. DAVID

THOMPSON.

DOCTOR, IT IS WONDERFUL TO

HAVE YOU HERE.

IT'S GREAT TO BE HERE.

Terry: IT MUST BE

STRANGE TO COME BACK TO THE

UNITED STATES.

IT'S A LITTLE DIFFERENT,

YES.

Terry: HERE YOU ARE,

WHAT AN AMAZING STORY YOU

HAVE.

YOU GREW UP WITH PARENTS ON

THE MISSION FIELD, AND

EVENTUALLY THEIR LIVES WERE

EVEN TAKEN ON THE MISSION

FIELD.

AND YET THAT DIDN'T DETER

YOU.

TELL ME WHAT WENT ON IN YOUR

HEART AND HOW GOD CALLED YOU

TO THE AMAZING WORK YOU'RE

DOING?

WELL, WHEN MY PARENTS

WERE KILLED, THAT WAS A

CRISIS MOMENT IN MY LIFE.

AS I CRIED OUT TO GOD, GOD

SPOKE TO ME.

IT WAS THE FIRST TIME IN MY

LIFE I EVER HEARD FROM GOD

THAT WAY.

AND HE CHALLENGED ME TO

TRUST HIM.

AFTER A STRUGGLE, I DID.

I SAID, OKAY, I WILL TRUST

YOU, EVEN THOUGH I DON'T

UNDERSTAND.

FROM THAT MOMENT ON, GOD

BEGAN TO TAKE CHARGE OF MY

LIFE AND TO LEAD ME.

I BEGAN TO SEE INCREDIBLE

THINGS HAPPEN IN MY

MINISTRY.

EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED IN

AFRICA AFTERWARDS RESULTED

FROM THAT DECISION.

Terry: THAT IS A

TESTAMENT OF FAITH, TO TRUST

GOD.

YET THAT SEED WAS BURST IN

YOU AS A YOUNG BOY TO GO OUT

AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

HOW DID GOD DO THAT?

OUR FAMILY WAS TRAVELLING

TOGETHER IN CAMBODIA.

WE CAME ON THE SCENE OF AN

ACCIDENT.

WE SAW THIS MAN SERIOUSLY

INJURED FROM AN ACCIDENT

THAT JUST OCCURRED.

MY FATHER TRIED TO HELP HIM,

AND HE ASKED ME TO COME

ALONG WITH SOME WATER TO

GIVE TO THIS MAN.

WE REALLY COULDN'T DO

ANYTHING.

HIS CHEST WAS CRUSHED.

AND SO I JUST WATCHED AND

SAW MY FATHER TRY TO HELP

HIM.

AND THEN TRY TO PRAY WITH

HIM.

AND THIS MAN JUST SAID,

PLEASE, DON'T TELL ME ABOUT

YOUR GOD.

HELP ME.

AND HE DIED.

AND FROM THAT MOMENT ON, I

JUST BEGAN TO ASK GOD, IF HE

COULD HELP ME BECOME

SOMEBODY WHO HELPED PEOPLE

LIKE THAT AND SHARE CHRIST

WITH THEM BEFORE IT WAS TOO

LATE.

Terry: AND YOU WERE A

YOUNG BOY.

I WAS 14.

Terry: YOU HAD QUITE A

WAYS TO GO BEFORE YOU COULD

GET TO THE PLACE WHERE YOU

WERE ON THE MISSION FIELD.

NOW YOU'RE AT MONGOLO

HOSPITAL?

MONGOLO.

Terry: AND IT'S NOT

LIKE AND AMERICAN HOSPITAL.

TELL US WHAT YOU MET WHEN

YOU ARRIVED?

IT WAS A DISPENSARY.

IT DIDN'T HAVE A SUPPLIES OR

EQUIPMENT.

LOTS OF SICK PEOPLE SHOWING

UP.

LOTS OF SICK CHILDREN, POLIO

AND WHOOPING COUGH AND

MEASLES AND CHILDREN DYING.

A VERY DIFFICULT TIME.

AND MY WIFE AND I AND OUR

TEAM, WE REALLY DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

BUT WE JUST TRUSTED IN GOD,

AND HE KNOWS WHAT TO DO.

HE SHOWED US OVER AND OVER

AGAIN HOW TO PROCEED.

WE GOT VACCINES, AND WE

VACCINATED AND TOPPED THE --

STOPPED THE EPIDEMICS.

EVERY MORNING I GOT UP AND

SAID, OKAY, LORD, I DON'T

KNOW WHAT TO DO.

SHOW ME.

I'M REALLY NOT CLEVER ENOUGH

TO BUILD A HOSPITAL.

Terry: AND YOU'VE BEEN

CALLED UPON -- AS I'M

READING YOUR BOOK -- YOU'VE

BEEN CALLED UPON TO DO SOME

THINGS IN A JUNGLE.

TELL ME WHERE YOU ARE WITH

THE HOSPITAL AND THE

COMPOUND THERE NOW?

WE HAVE ABOUT 150 BEDS,

AND WE HAVE A GREAT TEAM,

NURSES THAT MY WIFE AND THE

OTHER NURSES HAVE TRAINED IN

A NURSING SCHOOL.

WE STARTED A SURGICAL

TRAINING PROGRAM BECAUSE I

REALLY NEEDED TO MULTIPLY

MYSELF IF QUIE WE'RE GOING

TO MAKE AN IMPACT AT ALL.

Terry: WHAT'S THE

BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU FACE

IN THE WORK THAT GOD SET

BEFORE YOU?

I THINK THE HARDEST THING

IS TRYING TO PRIORITIZE IT.

WHAT IS IT THAT GOD WANTS ME

TO DO TODAY.

HE KNOWS WHAT IS GOING TO BE

THE MOST EFFECTIVE.

I COULD GO IN 20 DIFFERENT

DIRECTIONS.

BUT JUST FOCUSING ON HIM AND

SAYING, LORD, CAN I WALK

WITH YOU TODAY?

Terry: YOU'VE BEEN

CALLED UPON TO DO ALL SORTS

OF THINGS, AS FAR AS

BUILDING LATREANS AND TAKING

DOWN TREES.

WHAT'S THE HARDEST MEDICAL

SITUATION YOU'VE COME UPON?

WHERE A PERSON IS DYING.

AND THERE IS NOTHING ELSE I

CAN DO.

AND THE TEMPTATION IS TO

WALK AWAY AND SAY, SORRY, I

CAN'T DO ANYTHING FOR YOU.

AND THAT'S WHERE GOD SPEAKS

AND SAYS THERE IS SOMETHING

MORE.

THIS IS AN ETERNAL PERSON.

AND TO BE ABLE TO SHARE WITH

THAT PERSON THE LOVE OF

JESUS AND KNOWING THEY'RE

GOING TO LIVE FOREVER.

THAT'S THE GREATEST THING I

HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO.

Terry: YOU HAVE NOT

ONLY HEALED THE MEDICALLY,

BUT TO BRING THOUSANDS AND

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE TO JESUS

CHRIST.

YOU ALL NEED TO READ THESE

BOOKS BECAUSE THEY'RE FILLED

WITH ADVENTURES AND LOTS OF

STORIES.

HIS BOOK IS CALLED "THE HAND

ON MY SCALPEL," AND HERE IS

OTHER ONE "ON CALL."

THESE ARE AVAILABLE

NATIONWIDE.

PRAY FOR HIM.

YOU NEED MORE HELP OVER

THERE?

YES, WE DO.

WE NEED TRAINED SERVICES WHO

ARE WILLING TO VOLUNTEER.

Terry: GO TO cbn.com

AND WE'LL TELL YOU HOW YOU

CAN GET IN TOUCH WITH HIM

AND HOW YOU CAN GET AHOLD OF

THE BOOKS.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING

HERE AND THE AMAZING WORK

YOU DO.

THANK YOU.

Terry: GOD BLESS YOU.

Pat: THERE ARE THESE

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD,

AND IT IS ALWAYS

ENCOURAGING.

WE WANT TO THANK EVERY ONE

OF YOU FOR JOINING US ON

TODAY'S EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

TOMORROW, HOW ONE WOMAN

SAVED HER HUSBAND'S LIFE.

AND HE SUFFERED TWO BRAIN

ANEURYSMS.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PROVERBS:

"WHOEVER PURSUES

RIGHTEOUSNESS AND LOVE FINDS

LIFE, PROSPERITY, AND

HONOR."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
