The 700 Club - August 14, 2012

Scott Ross sits down with Hollywood icon Ann-Margret to discuss her early career, her marriage, her alcoholism and her faith. Plus, Stephen Marvin suffered a hand injury that he couldn't afford to see a Dr. for, so he watched The 700 Club. Read Transcript


SHE'S THE STAR OF

"BYE-BYE BIRDIE," AND "THE

CINCINNATI KID."

WE TALK TO ANN-MARGRET ABOUT

HER EPIC CAREER.

LUCILLE BALL, GENE

HACKMAN -- AND YOU WERE THE

FIRST PERSON TO KISS HIM ON

THE SCREEN.

I SORT OF NIBBLED ON HIS

SHOULDER.

Reporter: AND HER

SECRET LIFE?

I LOVE MY PRIVACY.

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

TERRIBLE DROUGHT IN THE

MIDWEST.

A REFINERY FIRE IN

CALIFORNIA, SHORTAGES IN THE

HEARTLAND OF ILLINOIS, GAS

PRICES ARE NOW, IN SOME

STATES, OVER $4 A GALLON,

AND IT LOOKS AS IF -- IT

LOOKS AS IF FOOD PRICES ARE

GOING THROUGH THE ROOF.

MY WIFE WENT TO THE GROCERY

STORE YESTERDAY, AND SHE

CAME BACK AND SHE SAID SHE

DIDN'T BUY VERY MUCH, AND

SHE SPENT $130.

Kristi: THAT'S VERY

EASY TO DO.

Pat: EASY TO DO?

WELL, THAT'S HEARTBREAKING

TO THE AVERAGE BUDGET.

Kristi: ABSOLUTELY.

Pat: IF YOU THINK

THAT'S NOT GOING TO IMPACT

THE ELECTION, IT'S GOING TO,

AND PEOPLE WILL SAY I CAN'T

STAND THIS.

LET'S MAKE A CHANGE.

AMERICANS ARE FEELING THE

PAIN AT THE PUMP WITH GAS

PRICES SHOOTING UP AGAIN.

> BUT WHAT IF WE DIDN'T

DEPEND ON FOREIGN COUNTRIES

FOR OUR OIL?

COULD AMERICA PRODUCE OUR

OWN ENERGY RIGHT HERE AT

HOME?

WELL, THE ANSWER IS

ABSOLUTELY YES.

Kristi: ENERGY IS A

PREMIUM IN THE U.S. TODAY.

CALIFORNIA IS EVEN OFFERING

A REWARD FOR COSTUMERS WHO

CUT BACK ON AIR CONDITIONING

TO SAVE ELECTRICITY.

HERE IS REPORTER MARK MARTIN

WITH THE STORY.

Reporter: THE HEATWAVE

IN CALIFORNIA TRIGGERED WHAT

IS CALLED A STATE-WIDE FLEX

ALERT.

ASKING CALIFORNIANS TO CUT

BACK ON ELECTRICITY ON

CERTAIN HOT DAYS.

IT IS GOOD FOR THE POWER

GRID, AND HELPS US BUILD UP

THAT TRANSMISSION AND

RESERVES.

IT IS REALLY GOOD FOR THE

CONSUMER BECAUSE THEY'RE

GOING TO COME OUT AHEAD.

Reporter: BUT MANY

EXPERTS SAY WE NEED TO

PRODUCE MORE.

COAL IS THE LARGEST SOURCE

OF ENERGY PRODUCED IN THE

U.S., AND IS USED TO

GENERATE ABOUT HALF THE

ELECTRICITY HERE.

HOWEVER, MANY IN THE COAL

INDUSTRY IN WEST VIRGINIA

FEEL THEY'RE BEING TARGETED

BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL

PROTECTION AGENT SEE.

WHEN PEOPLE OPPOSE THE

COAL INDUSTRY, THEY SHOULD

THINK LONG AND HARD AND TAKE

A HISTORY LESSON ON HOW

IMPORTANT THAT COAL HAS BEEN

TO AMERICAN CIVILIZATION AND

THE FREEDOM OF ALL WESTERN

DEMOCRACY.

Reporter: AND OTHERS

POINT TO THE NATURAL GAS

BOOM IN PLACES LIKE

PENNSYLVANIA.

RECENT ADVANCES ALONG WITH

HYDRAULIC FRACTURING ARE

FREEING THE GAS FROM ITS

ROCK PRISON DEEP BELOW THE

GROUND.

THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE

BLESSING, THAT WE HAVE BEEN

ABLE TO UNLOCK THIS

RESOURCE.

WHAT IT CAN DO IS, FOR THE

FIRST TIME, WE HAVE A REAL

ABILITY TO TAKE CONTROL OF

OUR ENERGY FUTURE.

Reporter: SIMILAR

TECHNOLOGY IS BEING USED TO

DRILL FOR OIL AND SHALE ROCK

IN STATES LIKE NORTH DAKOTA

AND MONTANA.

WITH AMERICAN ENERGY

RESERVES, THE HEAD OF SHELL

OIL SAID THE U.S. COULD AIM

FOR NEAR ENERGY INDEPENDENCE

IN THE NEXT 20 YEARS.

ANALYSTS SAY THE BENEFITS OF

DEVELOPING OIL, NATURAL GAS,

AND COAL RESOURCES, WOULD

AMOUNT TO FINANCIAL WIND

FALLS OF AROUND $5 TRILLION

FOR THE U.S.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THAT IS A HAPPY

SCENARIO.

THE UNHAPPY SCENARIO IS THAT

THE ENVIRONMENTALISTS WANT

TO BLOCK IT, AND PEOPLE IN

THE ADMINISTRATION WANT TO

CRIPPLE THE COAL COMPANIES.

AND THEY WANT TO LIMIT THE

FRACKING AND THESE NATURAL

SHAILS.

SHALES.

THE SHALE IS THE SOURCE BED

OF A GREAT DEAL OF OUR OIL.

AND IT HAS BEEN LOCKED UP

FOR MILLENNIUM, ACTUALLY,

FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS.

AND NOW, BY DRILLING A HOLE

DOWN MAYBE 5,000 FEET, AND

GOING OUT HORIZONTALLY,

MAYBE ANOTHER 2,000 FEET OR

SO, AND THEN SHOOTING HOLES

IN THAT PARTICULAR

FORMATION, THE AMOUNT OF OIL

AND GAS COMING OUT IS SIMPLY

STAGGERING.

AND NOBODY DREAMED IT COULD

HAPPEN, BUT IT IS HAPPENING

NOW.

AND UP IN NORTH DAKOTA,

THEY'RE HAVING A BOOM, AND

THE BUCK, WHICH IS ONE OF

THE FORMATIONS, AND THE

EAGLE FOR SHALE DOWN IN

TEXAS, AND OTHER FORMATIONS

UP IN PENNSYLVANIA -- IT IS

ENORMOUS.

WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS FIGURE

OUT A WAY OF USING NATURAL

GAS TO MOTIVATE CARS.

WE CAN USE IT RIGHT NOW FOR

ELECTRICITY.

MANY, MANY UTILITIES ARE

SHIFTING TO GAS INSTEAD OF

COAL.

AND THAT, WITH CLEAN COAL --

THE SOUTH AFRICANS HAVE

FIGURED OUT WAYS OF BURNING

COAL CHEAPLY AND WITHOUT

ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE.

BUT WE'RE NOT DOING IT.

AS A NATION, WE AREN'T

FOCUSING ON THE RICHES AT

OUR HAND.

INSTEAD OF THAT, WE

FORBIDDEN DRILLING ON THE

COAST.

WE FORBID DRILLING IN

ANWAR.

WE WILL NOT LET OIL

COMPANIES LOOK FOR THE OIL

THAT IS THERE.

AND STAILT STATES ARE VERY

CONCERNED ABOUT LIMITING THE

AMOUNT OF HYDRAULIC FRACKING

GOING ON.

FOLKS, GOD HAS RICHLY

BLESSED THIS NATION.

LET'S GET PEOPLE IN OFFICE

WHO WILL UNDERSTAND IT AND

THANK HIM FOR THE BLESSING,

AND THEN USE IT FOR THE GOOD

OF ALL OFHINK IT IS TIME TO

THROW OUT THE BUMS THAT ARE

STOPPING THIS PROGRESS.

LEE WEBB HAS THE REST OF OUR

TOP STORIES FROM THE CBN

NEWS ROOM.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, FRANCE IS

HOVERING ON THE EDGE OF

RECESSION, AND THAT WOULD BE

BAD NEWS FOR THE REST OF

EUROPE.

FRANCE IS THE EUROPEAN

UNION'S SECOND LARGEST

ECONOMY.

IT'S ECONOMY SHOWED NO

GROWTH FOR THE THIRD

STRAIGHT QUARTER.

MANY OF THE OTHER ECONOMIC

POWERS IN EUROPE ARE IN

RECESSION ALREADY, INCLUDING

BRITAIN, ITALY, AND SPAIN.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: I TELL YOU, THIS

IS GOING TO PUT THE BRAKES

ON PRESIDENT HOLLANDE'S

SOCIALIST PLANS.

YOU CANNOT GET BLOOD FROM A

TURNIP, AND HE IS TRYING TO

SQUEEZE THE RICH.

THE RICH ARE GOING TO BE

FLEEING FRANCE LIKE RATS ON

A SINKING SHIP.

IN A DEPRESSION, YOU CAN'T

GEM UP GOVERNMENT SPENDING.

THE FRENCH ARE IN TROUBLE,

BUT NOT NEAR AS MUCH AS THE

SPANISH.

UNEMPLOYMENT IN SPAIN IS

JUST SHORT OF 25%.

BUT AMONG THE YOUNG PEOPLE,

IT IS CLOSE TO 50%.

THINK OF THE HOPELESSNESS

WITH YOUNG PEOPLE COMING

INTO THE JOB MARKET AND NO

PLACE FOR THEM TO WORK.

AND THAT'S THE SITUATION IN

SPAIN.

IT IS A MESS.

LET'S NOT GO THERE IN THIS

COUNTRY.

LEE?

Lee: A COUNTY JUDGE IN

ARIZONA HAS DISMISSED A

LAWSUIT CHALLENGING THE

GOVERNOR'S DAY OF PRAYER

PROCLAMATION.

THE WISCONSIN-BASED "FREEDOM

FROM RELIGION" FOUNDATION

FILED SUIT.

THEY SAY THE DAY OF PRAYER

VIOLATES A CONSTITUTIONAL

LAW AGAINST STATE AND

RELIGION.

GOVERNORS IN ALL 50 STATES

ISSUED SIMILAR PROCLAMATIONS

LAST YEAR.

THE NEW PRESIDENT OF EGYPT

APPEARS TO BE MAKING A PLAY

FOR MORE POWER.

MOHAMMED MORSI IS A MEMBER

OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD,

AND HE OUSTED SOME OF THE

COUNTRY'S MOST POWERFUL

MILITARY LEADERS.

THE MOVE COULD, AND I

EMPHASIZE COULD, LEAD TO A

REMOVAL OF THE TOP PEOPLE.

OTHERS SAY MORSI MUST HAVE

WORKED CLOSELY WITH OTHER

MILITARY LEADERS BEFORE

MAKING THE MOVE.

THE GOAL IS TO MAKE EGYPT A

MUSLIM COUNTRY.

NBC EARNED GOLD MEDAL

RATINGS FOR THE LONDON

OLYMPICS.

THE GAMES HAD THE HIGHEST

AUDIENCE IN U.S. TELEVISION

HISTORY.

MORE THAN 219 MILLION

AMERICANS TUNED IN.

NBC HAD THE PREVIOUS RECORD

DURING THE BEIJING

OLYMPICS.

THOSE GAMES HAD 215 MILLION

VIEWERS.

31MILLION WATCHED THE

CLOSING CEREMONIES IN LONDON

LAST SUNDAY.

THAT'S THE MOST OF ANY

OLYMPIC FINISHES OUTSIDE THE

U.S. IN 36 YEARS.

IF YOU'RE AN "AMERICAN IDOL"

FAN AND DIDN'T GET ENOUGH OF

IT ON TELEVISION, THE TOP 10

FINALISTS ARE GIVING

CONCERTS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

IT IS A GRUELING SCHEDULE,

AND IT CAN BE A TEST OF

FAITH FOR SOME OF THE

CONTESTANTS.

JENNIFER WISHON EXPLAINS.

YOU HAVE TO GO WITHOUT

ANY SEAT BELT ON.

WE HOLD ON TO ANYTHING TO

SURVIVE.

* NO PAY NO MIND TO THE

DEMONS THAT KILL YOU WITH

FEAR *

Reporter: THEY'RE HALF

WAY THROUGH A 46 PERFORMANCE

CONCERT TOUR, TAKING THEM TO

MORE THAN 30 STATES.

IT'S FUN, BUT IT IS LIKE

I'M SO READY TO BE BACK IN

MY OWN BED AND GET SOME

SWEET TEA AND GOOD SOUTHERN

HOME COOKING.

Reporter: HE'LL GET IT

WHEN HIS TOUR HITS HIS HOME

STATE OF TENNESSEE.

THEY'RE NOT AFRAID TO SHARE

THEIR FAITH IN JESUS

CHRIST.

GETTING TIME TO GET IN

THE WORD IS HONESTLY LIKE

PULLING TEETH.

I NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD BE

LIKE THAT, BUT IT IS HARD

WHEN YOU'RE OUT ON THE

ROAD.

Reporter: THE MUSIC

BUSINESS IS GLAMOROUS, BUT

HAHN SAYS IT IS ALL LONELY.

IT ATTACKS YOU SO

QUICKLY, YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW

YOU'VE BEEN ATTACKED.

YOU LOOK BACK AND YOU THINK,

WOW, I WENT TOO FAR AND I

BECAME SUCH A DIFFERENT

PERSON.

AND THAT'S WHEN YOU REALIZE

YOU HAVE TO GO TO BACK TO

WHO YOU ARE.

Reporter: DIXON IS

WORKING ON A SOLO ALBUM THAT

SHOULD BE OUT BEFORE

CHRISTMAS.

I HAVE A LITTLE OVER 30

SONGS NOW TO PICK FOR

RECORDS.

IT IS JUST ABOUT PICKING THE

RIGHT ONES AND RUNNING WITH

THEM AND SEE WHAT GOD DOES

WITH THEM.

* I'M GLAD YOU CAME.

*

PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER

WITH ME.

MY DREAM HAS BEEN A GUY

GOING AFTER GOD'S OWN

HEART.

Reporter: FOR NOW,

MUSIC IS HIS MINISTRY, AND

THE TAGE I STAGE IS HIS

PULPIT.

I HAVE PEOPLE WHO WILL

SEE ME AND SEE MY MESSAGE

AND EVERYTHING.

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Lee: STRESS AND

DEPRESSION COULD BE HURTING

YOUR BRAIN, LITERALLY.

YALE RESEARCHERS ANY CHRONIC

STRESS AND MAJOR DEPRESSION

COULD CAUSE THE BRAIN TO

SHRINK.

AND THAT CAN LEAD TO THE

BRAIN GETTING SMALLER.

IT IS AMAZING STATISTICS

THERE, PAT.

Pat: WE WANT BIG

BRAINS.

HAVE YOU GOT A BIG BRAIN?

Kristi: HUGE.

Pat: THAT'S BECAUSE YOU

DON'T HAVE ANY STRESS.

YOU'RE WORKING WITH ME AND

THERE IS NO STRESS.

Kristi: YOU KEEP

BELIEVING THAT, PAT.

Pat: I DO.

Kristi: I'M NOT GOING

TO SAY I HAVE A SMALL

BRAIN.

Pat: A BIG BRAIN.

BECAUSE YOU'RE SO RELAXED.

Kristi: SO TRUE.

Pat: STAY LOOSE.

GO WITH THE FLOW.

I TOLD MY SECRETARY, THERE

IS A FRENCH STATEMENT, TRIE

TRONKIL.

Kristi: AND WHAT DOES

IT MEAN?

Pat: STAY LOOSE.

TRANQUILITY WILL MAKE YOUR

BRAIN CELLS GET MORE

ACTIVE.

STRESS THERE TAKE THEM DOWN

AND DESTROY YOU.

DON'T STRESS OUT.

NOTHING IS THAT IMPORTANT.

Kristi: THAT'S SO

TRUE.

Pat: OUR DEAR FRIEND,

BILLY GRAHAM.

WE WANT TO SALUTE HIM AND

SHOW OUR APPRECIATION OF A

GREAT MAN.

Lee: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

REVEREND BILLY GRAHAM IS

EXPECTED TO RETURN HOME IN

THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.

HE IS BEING TREATED FOR

BRONCHITIS AT A NORTH

CAROLINA HOSPITAL.

DOCTORS SAY HIS CONDITION IS

STEADILY IMPROVING.

THIS LATEST SCARE HAS PEOPLE

IN HIS HOME TOWN REFLECTING

ON REVEREND GRAHAM'S SEVEN

DECADES OF MINISTRY.

Reporter: REVEREND

BILLY GRAHAM'S INFLUENCE

SPREADS WORLDWIDE, BUT

RESIDENTS IN HIS HOME TOWN

OF ASHVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA,

SAY THEY FEEL A SPECIAL

CONNECTION TO THE

93-YEAR-OLD EVANGELIST.

HE IS SOMEONE I LOOK UP

TO GREATLY.

HE HAS BEEN A GREAT

INFLUENCE ON MY LIFE AND MY

MINISTRY.

I PRAY FOR HIM.

Reporter: DANNY SAYS HE

IS A PREACHER BECAUSE OF

GRAHAM'S INFLUENCE.

HIS MINISTRY HAS BEEN

IMPECCABLE.

HE HAS GIVEN OF HIMSELF, AND

HE HAS DONE SO MUCH FOR NOT

JUST OUR AREA, BUT FOR THE

ENTIRE WORLD AND THE KINGDOM

OF GOD.

Reporter: VISITORS IN

NORTH CAROLINA WERE SHOCKED

TO HEAR GRAHAM WAS IN THE

HOSPITAL.

MANY DRIVE FROM ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY TO RETRACE THE

REVEREND'S FAITH JOURNEY.

WE PRAY FOR THE BEST FOR

HIM AND HIS FAMILY.

Reporter: HIS

GRANDDAUGHTER SAYS THAT THE

FEVER IS GONE AND THE

ANTIBIOTICS SEEM TO BE

WORKING AGAINST THE

INFECTION.

WE FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT.

HE HAS THE SWEETEST, MOST

WONDERFUL CARE.

Reporter: GRAHAM'S

NIECE SAYS HE IS IN GREAT

SPIRITS AND READY TO GET

BACK HOME AND FINISH WRITING

HIS LATEST BOOK, DUE OUT

NEXT YEAR.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Lee: THIS IS GRAHAM'S

THIRD HOSPITAL STAY IN

LITTLE MORE THAN A YEAR FROM

RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS, AND HE

SUFFERS FROM PARKINSON'S AND

SOME HEARING AND VISION

LOSS, BUT WE'RE TELL SUNDAY

HE FELT GOOD ENOUGH TO GET

UP AND WATCH HIS SON PREACH

ON TELEVISION.

Pat: WELL, HE IS A DEAR

FRIEND FOR MANY YEARS.

I WORKED IN THE BILLY GRAHAM

CRUSADE IN NEW YORK.

AND THAT WAS IN 1957, AND IN

THOSE DAYS, BILLY WAS SAYING

THIS IS MY LAST ONE.

REALLY?

THIS IS THE BIG CULMINATION,

AND YOU EXPECT HE IS GOING

TO DIE ANY MINUTE.

AND '67, '77, '87, '97,

2007, AND HE IS STILL GOING

STRONG.

BUT HE DOES HAVE A SHUNT IN

HIS HEAD.

HE HAS SERIOUS IMPAIRED

HEARING.

HE CAN'T HEAR MUCH OF

ANYTHING.

I THINK HE HAS PROSTATE

CANCER, AND I DON'T KNOW

ABOUT PARKINSON'S.

THEY SAID HE HAS

PARKINSON'S, BUT I'M NOT

SURE THAT IS THE CORRECT

DIAGNOSIS.

GOD BLESS HIM.

HE WAS WITH US AT THE BERLIN

WALL, WHEN THE WALL FELL

OVER IN EUROPE, AND HE

GRACIOUSLY CONSENTED TO BE

THERE AT THAT TIME.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER WE

COORDINATED OUR VISITS.

WHAT A GREAT MAN.

WE LOVE HIM AND WE PRAY FOR

HIM.

PRAY FOR BILLY GRAHAM.

HE HAS BEEN AN INSPIRATION

TO ALL OF US.

Kristi: ABSOLUTELY.

UP NEXT, MORE THAN 50% OF

YOUNG PEOPLE UNDER THE AGE

OF 25 ARE UNEMPLOYED.

FIND OUT WHO THEY ARE, WHERE

THEY LIVE, AND WHY THEY'RE

SO ANGRY, AFTER THIS.

STILL AHEAD, ANN-MARGRET

RARELY GIVES INTERVIEWS.

I LOVE MY PRIVACY.

WELL, WE'LL LEAVE NOW.

Reporter: SO WHAT IS

SCOTT ROSS DOING IN HIS

LIVING ROOM.

I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING

WHICH IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO

ME.

Reporter: OKAY.

FIND OUT WHAT THAT

SOMETHING IS ON TODAY'S "THE

700 CLUB."

I COULDN'T MAKE IT.

I COULD NOT GO A STEP

FURTHER, OKAY?

Pat: JUST IMAGINE,

LIVING IN A COUNTRY WHERE

ONE OUT OF EVERY FOUR PEOPLE

IS OUT OF WORK.

AN UNEMPLOYMENT RATE OF AN

ALARMING 25%.

IN AMERICA, THAT WOULD BE A

DISASTER.

BUT IN SPAIN, THAT DISASTER

IS REALITY.

A WHOPPING 53% OF THE YOUTH

UNDER AGED 25 IN SPAIN ARE

UNEMPLOYED, WITH NO

PROSPECTS IN SIGHT.

AS DALE HERD REPORTS FROM

BARCELONA, IT HAS CREATED A

WHOLE LOST GENERATION OF

SPANISH YOUTH.

Reporter: IN PORTUGAL,

A LOCKSMITH IS CUTTING THE

BOLTS OFF AN APARTMENT THAT

HAS BEEN REPOSSESSED BY THE

COURT.

HE IS PUTTING NEW LOCKS ON

THE DOOR.

THE FAMILY ISN'T HOME, AND

THE PLACE LOOKS LIKE THEY

ABANDONED IT.

IN TORASSA, SPAIN, OUTSIDE

OF BARCELONA, THEY TRIED TO

STOP THE EVICTION OF A

FAMILY WHO HAS FALLEN BACK

ON THEIR MORTGAGE.

THE FATHER SAYS, I WANT TO

WORK AND PAY THE MORTGAGE.

SOME SAY IT IS A DEPRESSION

IN SPAIN, BUT SOME SAY IT IS

A FULL-BLOWN DEPRESSION.

IN SPAIN, THE UNEMPLOYMENT

RATE IS 24.6%, CLOSE TO THE

LEVEL OF THE UNITED STATES

DURING THE GREAT

DEPRESSION.

BUT THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE

FOR SPANIARDS UNDER THE AGE

OF 25 IS AN INCREDIBLE 53%,

THE HIGHEST IN WESTERN

EUROPE.

HIGHER THAN GREECE, AND

STILL RISING.

IT HAS CREATED A LOST

GENERATION OF 20 SOMETHINGS

WITH VERY BLEAK PROSPECTS

AHEAD OF THEM.

SPAIN IS ONE OF THE E.U.

COUNTRIES BEING CRUSHED BY

THE EURO.

THE ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL IS

FIGHTING AGAINST SPAIN'S

EFFORTS TO RECOVER.

Reporter: ON THE

OUTSKIRTS OF BARCELONA, YOU

CAN SEE ONE OF THE

CEMETERIES.

BUILDINGS UNDER CONSTRUCTION

NOW ABANDONED.

GRAVE STONES WERE A BOOM

TIME THAT VANISHED.

NOW A BARCELONA BLOGGER,

SANTIAGO, RUNS A NEW

WEBSITE, "THE LOST POOR."

HIS FRIEND HAS ALREADY

DECIDED TO LEAVE SPAIN FOR

ICELAND.

WE HAVE NO PROSPECTS.

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO PLAN

YOUR LIFE HERE.

SO WE ARE NOW THINKING OF

MOVING AW ABROAD.

Reporter: JUDITH SANZ

IS AN OUT OF WORK

AGRICULTURAL ENGINEER.

I'VE BEEN UNEMPLOYED FOR

13 MONTHS NOW.

NOWADAYS THINGS LOOK SO BAD

THAT I AM CONTEMPLATING THE

POSSIBILITY OF MOVING

ABROAD.

THE WAY THINGS LOOK TODAY,

I'M SERIOUSLY THINKING ABOUT

IT.

Reporter: ALBERTO

RODRIGUEZ SAYS WHEN HE

FINISHES HIS M.B.A., HE

WANTS TO MOVE TO LONDON.

A HISTORIC DEBT CRISIS,

BUSINESS FAILURES, AND HIGH

UNEMPLOYMENT LEVELS HAVE

CREATED SOCIETIES IN WHICH

YOUNG PEOPLE JUST STARTING

OUT SEE NO FUTURE, NO WAY TO

START THEIR CAREERS.

MANY WESTERN NATIONS HAVE

MADE IT HARD, IF NOT

IMPOSSIBLE, TO AND AN

ENTREPRENEUR.

IN PARIS, CLEMENT FOUND IT

SO HARD TO START A BUSINESS

AS A YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR,

INSTEAD, HE STARTED A

"GILBERT-STYLE" COMIC

STRIP.

ALL OF THE SHIPS LOOK THE

SAME, SO IT REPRESENTS THE

PATH EVERYBODY WILL TEND TO

FOLLOW IF THEY ARE FOLLOWING

WHERE SOCIETY WANTED THEM TO

GO.

Reporter: WHILE STILL

WORKING ON HIS M.B.A., HE

WAS TRYING TO SET UP A

COMPANY TO SEND FRENCH

PRODUCTS TO JAPAN, AND THEN

THE GOVERNMENT STARTED

DEMANDING MONEY.

I RECEIVED THE TAXES I

HAD TO PAY AS IF I DIDN'T

MAKE ANY PROFIT.

SO WE WORKED REALLY HARD,

AND GOVERNMENT WERE ASKING

US, LIKE, $2,000 EACH FOR

JUST HAVING CREATED THE

BUSINESS, EVEN IF WE EARNED

ZERO DOLLARS.

SO WE DECIDED TO STOP THE

BUSINESS BEFORE IT BECAME

TOO EXPENSIVE.

Reporter: GRAN JOHN

CONSIDERED LEAVING FRANCE,

BUT DECIDED TO STAY AND

NAVIGATE THE BUSINESS

CULTURE.

BUT POLLS HAVE SHOWN MOST

YOUNG PEOPLE WOULDN'T EVEN

THINK OF STARTING A

BUSINESS.

THEY WANT LIFETIME

GOVERNMENT JOBS.

ACROSS EUROPE, THE LOST

GENERATION IS ANGRY.

IT BELIEVES IT WAS HANDED A

MESS THEY DIDN'T CREATE.

TOO MANY OFTEN LIVE WITH

THEIR PARENTS, SOMETIMES

INTO THEIR 40s.

LIKE NUNO PINTO IN PORTUGAL

WHO HAS ALREADY THROWN IN

THE TOWEL AND FILED FOR

BANKRUPTCY.

I AM 40 YEARS OLD, AND

I'M LIVING WITH MY PARENTS.

THAT'S MY PAINFUL REALITY.

FOR THAT REASON I'M HERE, TO

SEE IF I CAN GET WHAT IS MY

LAST CHANCE AT PERSONAL

BANKRUPTCY.

Reporter: WHEN THESE

ARE THE PROSPECTS THAT YOUNG

PEOPLE HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD

TO, IT SHOWS JUST HOW BAD IT

HAS BECOME FOR EUROPE'S LOST

GENERATION.

DALE HERD, CBN NEWS IN

BARCELONA.

Pat: DALE GIVES SOME

TREMENDOUS INSIGHT.

IT IS FRIGHTENING WHAT HE

SHOWS, BUT IT IS TRUE.

I WAS THINKING ABOUT SPAIN.

SPAIN AT ONE TIME WAS THE

GREATEST EMPIRE IN THE

WORLD.

IT HAD AN ARMATTA OF SHIPS.

IT HAD OVERSEAS COLONIES.

IT'S SHIPS BROUGHT IN TONS

AND TONS OF GOLD AND SILVER

FROM THE NEW WORLD.

IT HAD LAVISH PALACES.

IT HAD A FABULOUS ARMY.

EVERYTHING ABOUT SPAIN WAS

REALLY SOMETHING.

AND THEY HAD BEAUTIFUL ART.

THE PAINTERS WERE JUST

FABULOUS.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TO THE PRADO

IN MADRID, YOU WOULD

UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE

GRACIOUSNESS.

DELICIOUS FOOD,

ENTERTAINMENT.

THEY HAD THE BULL FIGHTING,

AND THEY HAD TIENTAS, WHICH

IS THE TRYOUTS FOR HEIFERS

TO SEE IF THEY'RE MEAN

ENOUGH TO BREED BULLS.

THEY HAD DANCES AND

PARTIES.

THEY HAD EVERYTHING.

NOW LOOK AT THEM.

53% UNEMPLOYMENT.

WHY?

WELL, IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG

FOR BAD GOVERNMENT TO

DESTROY A THRIVING

ENTERPRISE AND A THRIVING

NATION.

IF YOU CUT OFF THE

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT, YOU

WILL KILL THE FREEDOM OF THE

PEOPLE.

AND THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENED.

WHEN SOCIALISM COMES IN, IT

KILLS THE SPIRIT OF

ENTREPRENEURSHIP, WHICH IN

TURN WILL EAT AWAY THE

FABRIC OF A NATION.

IT HAPPENED TO SPAIN.

IT IS HAPPENING IN FRANCE.

IT IS HAPPENING IN OTHER

COUNTRIES IN EUROPE.

AND THEY DON'T SEEM TO WAKE

UP.

AND I'D LIKE TO SOUND AN

ALARM BECAUSE MOST OF US

AMERICANS, WE COME FROM SOME

PLACE IN EUROPE.

MOST OF US.

A FEW COME FROM AFRICA AND

SOUTH AMERICA AND SO FORTH,

BUT MOST OF US COME FROM

ENGLAND, IRELAND, OR

SCOTLAND OR SPAIN OR

PORTUGAL OR GERMANY -- ONE

OF THOSE COUNTRIES.

AND WE WISH THE MOTHER

COUNTRIES WELL, BUT THEY HAD

BETTER WAKE UP.

IF THEY JUST WENT OUT AND

JUST ABOLISHED ABOUT 80% OF

THEIR REGULATIONS, JUST

ABOLISHED THEM AND TURN LOSE

THE ANIMAL PASSIONS OF THEIR

PEOPLE.

IN A MATTER OF 10 OR 15

YEARS, THE WHOLE SITUATION

WOULD BE REVERSED.

BUT THEY'RE NOT GOING TO DO

IT, ARE THEY, KRISTI?

Kristi: YES, THEY ARE.

I BELIEVE, PAT, THEY CAN

TURN THAT SITUATION AROUND.

Pat: HOPE IS GOOD.

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE HAVE HOPE.

Kristi: WE HAVE HOPE.

COMING UP, THE ACTRESS WHO

WAS DISCOVERED BY GEORGE

BURNS, DANCED WITH ELVIS,

AND GAVE PAT BOONE HIS FIRST

ON-SCREEN KISS.

I WAS THE FIRST PERSON.

I KISSED HIM ON HIS

SHOULDER.

OH, AT THAT TIME -- I SORT

OF NIBBLED ON HIS SHOULDER.

Kristi: ANN-MARGRET

TALKS ABOUT HER BATTLE WITH

ALCOHOL AND THE ONE THING

SHE COULD NEV ññññ 

Kristi: HOLLYWOOD ICON

ANN-MARGRET HAS SPENT A

LIFETIME IN THE SPOTLIGHT.

BEGINNING WITH HER FIRST

FILM ROLE AS THE DAUGHTER OF

BETTE DAVIS.

AND WAS IN "A POCKET FULL OF

MIRACLES."

STILL, SCOT ROSS HAS THE

PLEASURE OF TALKING WITH

ANN-MARGRET RECENTLY IN HER

BEVERLY HILLS HOME, WHERE

SHE TOLD SCOTT SHE HAD

SOMETHING TO SAY, WHICH,

QUOTE," IS REALLY IMPORTANT

TO ME."

Reporter: GIRL NEXT

DOOR AND SEX KITTEN.

THESE STARKLY CONTRASTING

QUALITIES HAVE CAPTIVATED US

FOR DECADES.

ANN-MARGRET BECAME A STAR

WHEN SHE WAS BARELY OUT OF

HIGH SCHOOL.

HER CAREER HAS BEEN STELLER,

BUT HER PERSONAL LIFE HAS

TAKEN SOME TOUGH TURNS.

Reporter: YOU DON'T DO

MANY INTERVIEWS, DO YOU?

NO.

NO.

Reporter: WHY?

I LOVE MY PRIVACY.

Reporter: WELL, WE'LL

LEAVE NOW.

I LOVE OUR HOME.

Reporter: OH, YEAH.

WE'VE BEEN HERE SINCE

1968.

Reporter: YOU REALLY

ARE AN INTROSPECTIVE

PERSON.

YOU'RE NOT A SHOW BUSINESS

PERSON.

YOU DON'T RUN AROUND AND GO

TO PARTIES.

YOU LIKE TO BE AT HOME WITH

ROGER, YOUR DOG, AND THE

MOTORCYCLE.

AND THE KITTIES.

Reporter: AND THE

KITTIES.

LET ME RUN SOMETHING BY

YOU --

OH, DEAR.

Reporter: THIS IS MIND

BLOWING TO ME, GEORGE BURNS,

WHO DISCOVERED YOU.

YES, HE DISCOVERED ME.

AND HE SAID, YOU WANT TO

COME TO VEGAS WITH ME?

[LAUGHTER]

Reporter: DID YOU HAVE

ANY INKLING AT THAT TIME,

WHAT THAT WAS OPENING UP TO

YOU?

EVERYTHING CAME FROM THAT

PERFORMANCE.

THOSE 10 DAYS, 10 NIGHTS IN

LAS VEGAS.

JACK BENNY, BOBBY DARRIN,

WHO I LOVE, PAT BOONE, AND

YOU WERE THE FIRST PERSON TO

KISS HIM ON SCREEN -- IS

THAT TRUE?

I WAS THE FIRST PERSON.

I KISSED HIM ON HIS

SHOULDER.

OH, AT THAT TIME, I SORT OF

NIBBLED ON HIS SHOULDER.

Reporter: NIBBLED?

MAKE A NOTE.

AND, OF COURSE, ELVIS, STEVE

McQUEEN, LUCILLE BALL,

JACK NICHOLSON, THE DUKE,

JOHN WAYNE.

BETTE DAVIS, DEAN MARTIN,

GENE HACKMAN, AND WE DON'T

HAVE TIME FOR THE REST.

THAT'S UNBELIEVABLE.

I AM SO BLESSED.

I HAVE BEEN SO VERY BLESSED

IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: FOR A LITTLE

GIRL FROM SWEDEN, FIVE YEARS

OF AGE, TO MOVE INTO THIS,

WHAT, PANTHEON OF ARTISTS

AND STARS --

EVER SINCE I WAS FOUR

YEARS OLD, I LOVED MAKING

PEOPLE SMILE, MAKING THEM

THINK.

MAKING THEM FEEL GOOD.

FEELING SOME KIND OF

EMOTION.

Reporter: BUT IT WAS

LIKE A ROCKET.

THE THINGS TOOK OFF.

IT WAS ONE THING AFTER

ANOTHER AFTER ANOTHER, AND

YOU WERE OUT THERE.

SO BLESSED.

Reporter: IS THAT HOW

YOU VIEW IT, AS A BLESSING?

SO BLESSED.

OH, MY GOODNESS.

Reporter: HOLLYWOOD

MAGAZINE PREDICTED A WEDDING

BETWEEN A ANN-MARGRET AND

ELVIS.

BUT IT WAS ROGER SMITH WHO

CAPTURED HER HEART.

I KNEW ON THE THIRD DATE

THAT WE WERE GOING TO BE

MARRIED.

Reporter: DID YOU LET

HIM KNOW THAT?

NO.

NO.

IT JUST FELT RIGHT.

Reporter: AND HE,

HIMSELF, QUITE A SUCCESSFUL

ACTOR, "77 SUNSET STRIP."

HE WAS QUITE THE MAN AT THE

TIME.

HE STILL IS.

Reporter: WELL, I DON'T

QUESTION IT.

HE HAD MORE FAITH IN ME

THAN I DID.

Reporter: REALLY?

UH-HUH.

ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS ABOUT

MY VIEW OF HIM WAS THAT HE

WOULD PROTECT ME.

Reporter: HE GAVE YOU A

SAFE PLACE?

YES, HE DID.

Reporter: IN 1980,

ROGER WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A

NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASE THAT

CAUSES EXTREME WEAKNESS.

IT AFFECTS PEOPLE

DIFFERENTLY, BUT HE HAS BEEN

IN REMISSION FOR A LONG

TIME.

Reporter: BUT YOU STUCK

IT OUT, TOO.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO LEAVE

MARRIAGES TODAY BECAUSE THEY

DON'T LIKE THE SAME

RESTAURANTS.

YOU KNOW.

BOTH OF YOU HAVE TO WANT

IT TO WORK, AND WE DO.

AND WE STILL LIKE EACH

OTHER.

AND WE STILL LAUGH.

HOW ABOUT THAT?

Reporter: IN 1994, ANN

TALKED CANDIDLY ABOUT HER

LIFE AND CAREER IN HER

AUTOBIOGRAPHY, "ANN-MARGRET,

MY STORY."

IT CAUSED YOU TO HAVE TO

REALLY EXAMINE YOURSELF,

TOO?

YES.

YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH A LOT

OF ANGST.

Reporter: AND YOU DID,

AND, AGAIN, YOU WROTE ABOUT

IT.

THE SIZE OF THAT DROVE YOU

TO DRINKING?

THAT'S SOMETHING I DEALT

WITH.

I DEALT WITH IT.

Reporter: AND YOU

OVERCAME IT?

I DEALT WITH IT.

YOU NEVER REALLY OVERCOME

IT, BUT I DEALT WITH IT.

Reporter: HOW DID YOU

DO IT?

AND I HAVE BEEN

CONSTANTLY DEALING WITH IT.

Reporter: IS IT STILL A

BATTLE TODAY?

YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO BE

AWARE OF IT, BUT I HAVE BEEN

WITHOUT IT NOW FOR 32

YEARS.

ALL MY LIFE I'VE HAD THIS

FEELING DEEP, DEEP, DEEP

INSIDE OF ME.

MY FAITH AND MY FEELINGS.

Reporter: HOW WOULD YOU

IDENTIFY THE SOMETHING THAT

IS INSIDE YOU?

I MEAN, YOU GO OUTSIDE

AND YOU SEE -- YOU SEE THE

FLOWERS, YOU SEE THE TREES,

YOU SEE -- I MEAN, YOU SEE

ALL OF YOUR LOVED ONES.

AND THEN YOU THINK OF WHO

CREATED IT ALL.

Reporter: IN HER FIRST

SIX YEARS IN SWEDEN, AND

LATER IN THE U.S.,

ANN-MARGRET AND HER FAMILY

ATTENDED THE LUT LUTHERAN

CHURCH.

SHE SAYS SHE PRAYS AND LOOKS

FOR THE GOOD IN PEOPLE.

Reporter: YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, WITH

JESUS CHRIST, THAT PART OF

IT, IS THAT A REALITY TO

YOU?

OH, YES.

Reporter: IT IS.

I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING

WHICH IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO

ME.

Reporter: OKAY.

IF I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD

NEVER SEE MY MOTHER AND

FATHER AGAIN, I COULDN'T

MAKE IT.

I COULD NOT GO A STEP

FURTHER, OKAY?

Reporter: OKAY.

AND SO KNOWING THAT YOU KNOW

THE LORD, AND THAT YOUR

PARENTS DID, THAT ASSURES

YOU OF THAT?

YES.

Reporter: SO AFTER ALL

OF THE ACCOLADES AND ALL OF

THE AWARDS AND EVERYTHING

ELSE, YOU SAID NONE OF THAT

REALLY COUNTS?

FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.

Kristi: PAT?

Pat: WHAT A LOVELY

LADY.

LOVELY.

Kristi: ABSOLUTELY.

ARE YOU --

Pat: AM I WHAT?

Kristi: NO, NO, NO.

YOU KEEP GOING.

I KNOW, I KEEP INTERRUPTING

YOU.

Pat: SHE IS VERY

CHARMING.

I THINK THAT'S BEAUTIFUL,

AND HER STRUGGLE WITH

ALCOHOL, I DIDN'T KNOW

ABOUT.

BUT SHE COULDN'T -- I GUESS

HER MOTHER AND FATHER WERE

DEAD, AND IF SHE COULDN'T

SEE THEM -- THAT'S

INTERESTING, I WANT TO BE

ABLE TO SEE MY MOTHER AND

FATHER.@H

THAT LITTLE BOY WHO DIED,HÑ@Ñ

THAT BURPO KID, HE WENT TO

HEAVEN AND HE SAW ALL OF HIS

ANCESTORS.

HE SAW GREAT GRANDPARENTS

AND EVERYTHING.

BY THE WAY, I'M GOING TO --

I AM A GREAT GRANDFATHER.

I HAVE TWO, AND ONE MORE IS@

COMING.

Kristi:@ A@ TOTAL OF HOW

MANY?

Pat: I HAVE 14

GRANDCHILDREN AND THREE

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN -- WELL,

TWO AND A HALF.@

I'M THRILLED.úú

I'M A PATRIARCH.

Kristi: DON'T YOU THINK

HOW COOL IT IS THAT GOD

PLACED A VISION IN YOUR

HEART, AND BECAUSE YOU'RE

OBEDIENT, YOU ARE SEEING IT

COME FORTH IN YOUR CHILDREN

AND THEIR CHILDREN, AND

THEIR CHILDREN AFTER THAT.

Pat: THE THOUSANDS OF

GENERATIONS TO THEM THAT

LOVE HIM.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

SERVING GOD IS A GOOD

THING.

IT MAY BE DIFFICULT AT

TIMES, BUT IT IS THE WAY TO

GO.

ALL RIGHT, LET'S GET SOME

QUESTIONS.

Kristi: WE'RE GOING TO

BEGIN WITH CHERYL, AND SHE

SAYS, "WHAT DOES THE BIBLE

TEACH ABOUT DEFENDING ONE'S

FAMILY WITH A WEAPON.

I NEVER FIRED A GUN UNTIL I

WAS 63.

I'VE TAKEN A TRAINING CLASS

AND HAD TRAINING ON MY GUN.

I'M AWAITING MY CONCEALED

CARRY PERMIT, BUT THERE ARE

HOME INVASIONS WEEKLY AROUND

US WITH HOMEOWNERS BEING

HURT OR KILLED.

I STILL FEEL CONFLICTED

ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF

EVER SHOOTING A PERSON, BUT

I FEEL I COULD IF THEY EVER

INVADED MY HOME OR TRIED TO

ATTACK ME IN A PUBLIC

PLACE."

Pat: I THINK THAT

SELF-DEFENSE IS OKAY.

IT IS NOT MURDER.

IF YOU DEFEND YOURSELF OR

DEFEND YOUR FAMILY.

AND I THINK WE WOULD

PROBABLY HAVE A LOT LESS

CRIME IF THE CRIMINALS KNEW

IF THEY BROKE INTO THE HOUSE

THEY WOULD BE MEETING A

GRANNY WITH A SHOTGUN.

Kristi: YOU KNOW?

Pat: REALLY.

THEY THINK IT IS WITH

IMPUNITY.

THIEVES DO NOT WISH TO

ENCOUNTER ANYBODY.

THEY WANT TO STEAL YOUR

PROPERTY AND LEAVE.

IF THEY HAPPEN TO RUN INTO

YOU IN YOUR BEDROOM, WHILE

YOU'RE SLEEPING, THEY'LL TRY

TO KILL YOU SO YOU WON'T

TALK.

IF THEY THOUGHT -- SOME OF

THESE CRAZIES THAT GET LOOSE

IN THEATERS AND SCHOOLS, IF

THEY KNEW A CERTAIN NUMBER

OF PEOPLE WHO WERE ARMED --

THAT YOUNG MAN AT VIRGINIA

TECH, IF SOME OF THE

STUDENTS WERE ARMED, HE

COULDN'T HAVE GONE ON THE

KILLING RAMPAGE THAT HE

DID.

ANYHOW, I DON'T THINK

ANYTHING IS WRONG WITH

SELF-DEFENSE.

IF SELF-DEFENSE IS IN LAW,

IT'S A JUSTIFICATION FOR

HOMICIDE.

AND I SEE NOTHING WRONG WITH

DEFENDING YOURSELF AND USING

FORCE TO DO IT.

THE BIBLE SAYS TURN THE

OTHER CHEEK, I KNOW.

SOMEBODY SLAPS YOU ON ONE

CHEEK, TURN THE OTHER ONE.

AND THAT'S THE NORMAL

DEFENSE THAT WE'RE SUPPOSED

TO HAVE.

JESUS SAID DON'T RESIST

EVIL.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WHEN

IT COMES TO DOWN TO YOUR

WIFE GETTING KILLED, I THINK

THAT YOU NEED TO STAND UP.

Kristi: SURE.

PAT, I'VE GOT TO BE HONEST

WITH YOU.

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN SO

CONFLICTED, AND LET ME TELL

YOU WHY.

BECAUSE I TOTALLY AGREE

YOU'VE GOT TO PROTECT YOUR

FAMILY AND BABIES.

ONE OF THE VERY FIRST

STORIES I EVER DID WHEN I

WAS FIRST STARTING OUT, A

DAD WHO ACCIDENTALLY SHOT

HIS SON.

BECAUSE HIS SON HAD GONE TO

SPEND THE NIGHT AT A

FRIEND'S HOUSE AND DECIDED

TO COME HOME EARLY IN THE

MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

SO THE FATHER THOUGHT IT WAS

A BURGLAR AND ENDED UP

SHOOTING HIM.

AND I INTERVIEWED THE DAD

AND I INTERVIEWED THE SON,

WHO HAD MAJOR BRAIN

COMPLICATIONS, AND I WAS

ALWAYS CONFLICTED BECAUSE

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT --

Pat: THAT WAS AN

ACCIDENT.

Kristi: OF COURSE.

Pat: GUNS ARE

DANGEROUS.

WE HAVE HERE AT CBN A

TRAINED POLICE FORCE --

THEY'RE TRAINED WITH

WEAPONS.

Kristi: EXACTLY.

Pat: AND, OF COURSE,

I'M TRAINED WITH WEAPONS.

BUT THE THOUGHT OF TAKING

SOMEBODY'S LIFE IS SOMETHING

HORRIBLE.

IT IS ONE THAT SHOULDN'T BE

TAKEN LIGHTLY.

THIS WHOLE IDEA, YOU SEE HIM

AND SAY I'M GOING TO BLOW

HIM AWAY -- NO WAY.

HUMAN LIFE.

Kristi: NEXT QUESTION,

MAUREEN SAYS, "I LEARNED

ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF

COCONUT OIL FROM YOUR SHOW,

AND I THANK YOU.

I HAVE DEM SHO DEMENTIA IN

MY FAMILY, I'M WONDERING

ABOUT OMEGA-3 FISH OILS.

IS THAT SOMETHING I SHOULD

TAKE?"

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

THE WHOLE IDEA IS TO GET

CIRCULATION GOING SO YOU

DON'T BUILD UP THE AN

ANALOID PLAQUES.

FISH OIL, I TAKE THREE

TABLESPOONS A DAY.

Kristi: DOESN'T IT COME

BACK UP WHEN YOU BURP --

Pat: THEY HAVE THE

NORWEGIAN KIND NOW WITH A

LITTLE LEMON.

AND ANOTHER THING I

RECOMMEND IS PHOSPHA

PHOSPHATITLE SERIN.

AND THE OTHER IS A ACEYTL

AND IT CAUSES THE BRAIN TO

FLOW.

ALZHEIMER'S IS A DREADED

DISEASE, AND PEOPLE DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT IS THE DEAL,

BUT WE DID A THING ABOUT

COCONUT OIL AND IT SEEMS TO

HELP.

WHAT DID I JUST SAY?

Kristi: I NEED THE@

VITAMINS FOR BRAIN

RETENTION.

PHOSPHATATED --

Pat: SAY IT AGAIN.

WHAT IS IT?

Kristi: OH, NI

GOODNESS, PAT.

I DON'T REMEMBER ALL OF

THEM.

Pat: JUST ONE.

Kristi: OMEGA-3s, AND

PHOSPHATITLE SERIN.

Pat: AND WHAT'S THE

SECOND ONE?

Kristi: WE TALKED ABOUT

OMEGA-3 FISH OIL.

Pat: AND WHAT WAS THE

OTHER ONE?

L-CARNITIN.

IT INCREASES BLOOD FLOW IN

YOUR BRAIN.

Kristi: IT IS FLOWING

RIGHT NOW.

Pat: I DON'T MEAN TO

PUT STRESS ON YOU?

Kristi: SANDY, THE

PRODUCER, IS LIKE GO TO THE

NEXT STORY.

Pat: NO.

SHE WANTS YOU TO TELL THE

ANSWERS.

Kristi: STILL AHEAD,

PAT, A SINGLE MOM HAS TO

MAKE SOME DIFFICULT

CHOICES.

I HAD TO MAKE DECISIONS

ON DO I PAY CERTAIN BILLS,

OR DO I BUY FOODS, OR DO I

BUY MY PRESCRIPTIONS.

SOMETIMES I'VE HAD TO PUT

STUFF BACK OFF THE SHELF.

Kristi: SEE WHERE THIS

MOTHER OF THREE FINDS HELP

AND HOPE FOR HER FAMILY.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWS BREAK.

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS

MOVED A STEP CLOSER TO

OFFICIALLY ENDORSING

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

AND CALLING FOR THE REPEAL

OF THE FEDERAL LAW THAT

DEFINES MARRIAGE AS A UNION

BETWEEN ONE MAN AND ONE

WOMAN.

A COMMITTEE VOTED TO ADD THE

ISSUES TO THE PARTY'S

PLATFORM THIS WEEKEND.

THE PLATFORM NOW GOES TO THE

NATIONAL CONVENTION IN NORTH

CAROLINA IN SEPTEMBER.

THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

HAS FILED A LAWSUIT ASKING A

FEDERAL COURT TO ENFORCE A

SUBPOENA AGAINST

ATTORNEY-GENERAL ERIC

HOLDER.

THE HOUSE HAS TRIED FOR

MONTHS TO GET HOLDER TO

RELEASE DOCUMENTS RELATED TO

THE "FAST AND FURIOUS"

GUN-RUNNING SCANDAL.

AN OPERATION WHERE MORE THAN

2,000 GUNS WERE ALLOWED TO

BE TRANSFERRED ACROSS THE

U.S. BORDER INTO MEXICO.

THE GUNS WERE USED TO KILL

AT LEAST ONE U.S. BORDER

AGENT AND SCORES OF U.S.

CITIZENS.

THE WHITE HOUSE REFUSES TO

TURN OVER THE DOCUMENTS,

CLAIMING EXECUTIVE

PRIVILEGE.

PAT AND KRISTI WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELCOME BACK TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

MICHELLE DELABONO IS THE

SINGLE MOTHER OF THREE

CHILDREN.

SHE ALSO HAS MULTIPLE

SCLEROSIS.

BUT THAT DOESN'T STOP

MICHELLE FROM BEING

EVERYTHING IN HER POWER TO

PROVIDE FOR HER POWER.

AND NOW SHE HAS SOME HELP

PUTTING FOOD ON THE TABLE.

Reporter: ONE OF

MICHELLE'S FAVORITE

ACTIVITIES IS PLAYING AT THE

PARK WITH HER CHILDREN.

BUT SOME DAYS SHE CAN ONLY

WATCH FROM A DISTANCE

BECAUSE SHE IS BATTLING

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

MICHELLE'S M.S. MAKES IT

DIFFICULT FOR THE SINGLE

MOTHER OF THREE TO WALK OR

EVEN COOK A MEAL FOR HER

FAMILY.

I CALL IT A CHALLENGE.

I DON'T CALL IT A

DISABILITY.

I CALL IT AS A CHALLENGE

BECAUSE THEN IT GIVES ME

MORE REASONS TO GO ON.

Reporter: MICHELLE AND

HER FAMILY LIVE ON A VERY

LIMITED INCOME FROM SOCIAL

SECURITY.

THEY SHOP AT THRIFT STORES

TO HELP STRETCH THEIR

DOLLARS.

BUT WITH THE RISING COST OF

FOOD AND GASOLINE, IT IS

TOUGH TO GET BY.

I HAD TO MAKE DECISIONS

ON DO I PAY CERTAIN BILLS

THIS MONTH OR DO I BUY FOOD

THIS MONTH OR DO I BUY

PRESCRIPTIONS.

I ALWAYS TRY TO BUDGET MY

MONEY AND FINANCES, AND

SOMETIMES I'VE HAD TO PUT

STUFF BACK ON THE SHELVES.

Reporter: TO HELP FILL

THE GAP, MICHELLE TURNS TO

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PARTNER, JOSEPH'S

STOREHOUSE.

Reporter: THIS MINISTRY

PROVIDES FOOD AND SPIRITUAL

SUPPORT FOR MIABLE IN WILSON

COUNTY, TENNESSEE.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PROVIDES THOUSANDS OF POUNDS

OF FOOD TO HELP FAMILIES

LIKE MICHELLE.

MICHELLE SAYS SHE IS

GRATEFUL TO JOSEPH'S

STOREHOUSE AND "OPERATION

BLESSING" FOR HELPING TO PUT

FOOD ON THE TABLE.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO SEE

PEOPLE WHO HAVE A KIND HEART

AND THEY HELP OUT FAMILIES

SUCH AS MYSELF.

THEY DON'T REALLY GET

PRAISED, BUT I'M THE TYPE OF

PERSON THAT I'LL NEVER

FORGET SOMEBODY THAT HELPS

ME AND MY FAMILY.

Pat: WHAT A BEAUTIFUL

LADY.

WHAT A BRAVE PERSON.

WE NEED TO PRAY FOR SOMEBODY

LIKE MICHELLE DELABONO.

AND THE FACT WE CAN HELP HER

WITH FOOD SO SHE DOESN'T

HAVE ALL OF THAT STRESS,

WE'RE DELIGHTED.

IT IS ONE MORE PERSON WE'RE

HELPING.

WE'RE YOU'RE HAND EXTENDED

TO HELP.

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE,

JUST GIVE US A CALL AND SAY

THIS IS FOR "OPERATION

BLESSING," OR THIS IS FOR

CBN, WHATEVER.

1-800-759-0700.

WE'VE GOT SOME WONDERFUL

TESTIMONY LEFT TO GO IN THIS

SHOW, AND KRISTI IS GOING TO

TELL US ABOUT IT.

Kristi: WE DO, PAT.

STEVEN MARTIN WAS EXPECTED

TO SPEND SOME DOWN TIME WITH

HIS FAMILY, INSTEAD AN

ACCIDENT STOLE HIS GOOD TIME

AND ROBBED HIM OF THE USE OF

HIS HANDS FOR TWO YEARS.

AS A FAMILY, WE WERE JUST

ENJOYING THE JACUZZI.

AND WE HAD A GERMAN SHEPHERD

DOG, AND SHE WAS NIPPPING AT

THE BUBBLES IN THE JACUZZI.

AND WE WERE AFRAID SHE WOULD

BITE ONE OF THE BOYS.

I GRABBED HER AT THE SCRUFF

OF HER NECK, AND IN DOING

THAT, SOMETHING HAPPENED IN

MY HAND AND IT SNAPPED AND I

COULDN'T RELEASE MY

FINGERS.

Reporter: IN AN

INSTANT, STEVEN LOST THE USE

OF HIS LEFT HAND.

I HAD TROUBLE EVEN

HOLDING A GLASS.

AS YOU DO EVERYTHING WITH

YOUR THUMB AND YOUR OTHER

FINGER, AND I COULDN'T GRASP

ANYTHING.

THERE WAS NO CONTROL THERE.

Reporter: WHEN HIS HAND

DIDN'T GET ANY BETTER,

STEVEN WENT TO THE DOCTOR.

THE DOCTOR TOLD ME AT

THAT POINT THE ONLY WAY TO

REPAIR WHAT I HAD, WHICH HE

REFERRED TO AS TRIGGER

FINGER, WAS THROUGH

SURGERY.

THAT WASN'T AN OPTION.

HAND SURGERY WAS IN THE TENS

OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.

AND THAT IS SOMETHING WE

COULDN'T AFFORD.

Reporter: STEVEN DIDN'T

HAVE ANY MEDICAL INSURANCE,

SO HE BEGAN TAKING

OVER-THE-COUNTER PAIN

MEDICATION.

THE PAIN MEDICATION WOULD

TAKE THE EDGE OFF.

IT WOULDN'T REALLY TAKE IT

AWAY.

YOU WORKED AROUND IT AND

START TO LIVE WITH THE

PAIN.

YOU DON'T HAVE ANY CHOICE.

Reporter: STEVEN PRAYED

FOR MANY NIGHTS FOR GOD TO

HEAL HIS HAND.

HE ALSO FOUND EN

ENCOURAGEMENT FROM WATCHING

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

OUT OF THE BLUE, TERRY

GOES, I SEE A MAN WITH HIS

HAND -- AND SEE SEEMED

CONFUSED -- IN THE SHAPE

WITH A CLAW.

THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE,

WHERE YOU HAVE A PROBLEM

WITH YOUR HAND, WHERE IT

GETS LOCKED INTO SORT OF A

CLAW-LIKE POSITION.

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU.

AND I WAS LIKE, IT'S GOT

TO BE ME.

IT WAS INSTANTANEOUS.

THE PAIN WAS GONE.

I CAN MOVE MY FINGERS

WITHOUT ANY TROUBLE.

I'M A BELIEVER, AND I

BELIEVE IN PRAYER, BUT WHEN

IT HAPPENS TO YOU, IT IS

AMAZING.

Reporter: STEVEN AND

KAREN WERE AMAZED STEVEN

COULD OPEN HIS HAND FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN TWO YEARS.

I GRABBED THE PHONE AND

CALLED FAMILY.

HE WAS ABLE TO USE HIS HANDS

AND OPEN HIS HANDS.

IT WAS VERY EXCITING.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

FIRST THINGS STEVEN WAS ABLE

TO DO THAT HE HADN'T BEEN

ABLE TO DO BEFORE, WAS SHOOT

HIS BOW.

IT ALLOWED ME TO DO

ACTIVITIES I WASN'T ABLE TO

DO.

TO WORK WITH MY KIDS ON THE

CAR.

AND TO HAVE THAT BONDING

THAT A FATHER NEEDS TO HAVE

WITH YOUNG TEENAGERS.

I'M PROOF THAT GOD STILL

HEALS TODAY.

GOD IS ACTIVE TODAY AND

YESTERDAY AND TOMORROW, AND

YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THE

SCRIPTURES.

AND HE SAYS HE IS THE HEALER

AND THAT HE WANTS TO HEAL

YOU.

GOD HEALS.

Kristi: GOD DOES HEAL

AND HE IS TRUE TO HIS WORD.

THAT'S WHY WE WANT TO

ENCOURAGE YOU RIGHT NOW WITH

MORE INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE

SEEN A MIRACLE FROM GOD.

HERE IS ONE --

Pat: LET'S PRAY.

Kristi: YOU WANT TO

PRAY?

Pat: NO.

TELL US MORE.

SHE HAD AN INFECTION FROM

THE BACK OF HER THROAT THAT

CAUSED BLEEDING.

PAT, YOU GAVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID THERE IS A FUNGUS

IN THE BACK OF YOUR THROAT.

IT WOULD BE LIKE A BURNING

IN YOUR THROAT, THAT IS

GOING TO BE HEALED

COMPLETELY.

SHE IMMEDIATELY FELT THE

HEAT, AND THE BLEEDING IN

HER THROAT STOPPED.

HOWEVER, THERE WAS STILL

IRRITATION IN HER THROAT.

A FEW DAYS LATER, SHE FELT

THE HEAT AND THE HEALING WAS

COMPLETE.

Pat: A FUNGUS IN HER

THROAT -- I DIDN'T KNOW THAT

LADY, BUT GOD KNEW.

AND GOD KNOWS YOU.

WHAT IS HURTING?

DO YOU HAVE A SKIN RASH?

PSORIASIS?

DO YOU HAVE AN EAR PROBLEM,

YOU CAN'T HEAR?

WHATEVER THE PROBLEM, WE'RE

GOING TO PRAY.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH KRISTI,

AND WE AGREE TOGETHER FOR

THE NEEDS OF THIS AUDIENCE.

A NECK MUSCLE IS BEING

HEALED RIGHT NOW..

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR NECK.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, BE

MADE WHOLE.

KRISTI?

Kristi: THE LORD IS

HEALING SOMEONE WITH A TORN

LIGAMENT IN YOUR LEG.

YOU TWISTED IT, OR YOU FELL,

AND THE LORD IS HEALING YOU

RIGHT NOW.

THANK YOU, JESUS.

Pat: A BLADDER

INFECTION WAS JUST HEALED.

YOU'VE HAD AN AWFUL TIME

WITH THIS.

IT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR SIX

OR SEVEN YEARS.

AND RIGHT NOW, AT THIS

MOMENT, THAT INFECTION IS

BEING BURNED OUT OF YOUR

BODY, AND YOU WILL HAVE NO

MORE PROBLEM WITH IT.

AND MAY THE ANOINTING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT COME UPON YOU

AND MEET EVERY NEED IN YOUR

LIFE IN JESUS' NAME.

Kristi: THANK YOU,

LORD.

AMEN.

Pat: TOMORROW WE HAVE

ANOTHER IN THE SERIES BY

THIS CHARMING LADY, KRISTI,

WHO IS GOING TO TELL YOU

SOMETHING ABOUT --

Kristi: DATING FOR

SINGLE PARENTS.

Pat: AND YOU'RE ONE OF

THEM?

Kristi: I'M A SINGLE

PARENT.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT DATING,

BUT I'M A SINGLE PARENT.

Pat: DO YOU KNOW HOW TO

DO SAFE DATE?

Kristi: I DON'T KNOW

ABOUT DATING.

TUNE IN TOMORROW AND YOU'LL

FIND OUT.

Pat: TODAY WE LEAVE YOU

WITH THESE WORDS FROM THE

PSALMS: "OH, LORD, MY GOD, I

CRIED OUT TO YOU AND YOU

HEALED ME."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT.

WE'VE GOT TELEPHONES

AVAILABLE.

EVEN THOUGH THIS PROGRAM

ISN'T ON THE AIR, IF YOU

NEED HELP, 1-800-759-0700,

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

AND TOMORROW, KRISTI WILL

UNVEIL HER SECRET.

Kristi: ON THE SERIES.

WE'RE A MESS TODAY, PAT.

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

BYE-BYE.
