(MUSIC).


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.


AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER


THOMPSON, THANKS FOR JOINING US


TODAY.


LAURA LYNN, I'M INTO THE


SUMMER GROOVE, I'VE BEEN


BARBECUING, GOLFING AND


BARBECUING AND WEARING MY


CROCKS AS WELL AS, I WANT TO


MAKE SURE I GET EVERY OUNCE OF


THIS SUMMER.


THAT'S WHAT SUMMER MEANS TO


YOU?


TO ME, IT MEANS MY


DAUGHTER'S GRADUATION IS COMING


UP, HEADING TO THE MALL FOR


SOME NEW SUMMERWARE, GETTING


SOME NEW CROCKS -- I WOULD NOT


WEAR THOSE.


NO?


I'M GETTING YOU SOME CROCKS.


THEY'RE RIDICULOUS LOOKING,


BUT COMFORTABLE.


NOT THAT I'M DOING


ADVERTISING FOR IT, AFTER


GOLFING A FEW TIMES.


I HEARD THEY'RE REALLY COOL


BUT THEY DON'T LOOK GOOD, I


PREFER HEELS.


YOU'VE HEARD THE SAYING THAT


GOD ONLY GIVES US AND GIVES YOU


WHAT YOU CAN HANDLE, ON TODAY'S


SHOW, WE'LL SHOW YOU TWO


AMAZING STORIES OF PEOPLE WHO


WERE STRETCHED TO THE LIMIT OF


WHAT THEY COULD HANDLE SO THEY


TURNED TO GOD FOR A LITTLE HELP


AND HANDLE IT HE DID, YOU'LL


SEE WHAT WE MEAN BY IT A LITTLE


LATER IN THE SHOW.


CURT SCHILLING WILL GO DOWN


AS THE GUTSIEST PITCHERS TO


EVER PLAY BASEBALL, BUT HIS


GREATEST CHALLENGE CAME AT HOME


WHEN HE AND HIS WIFE SHONDA


FOUND THAT ONE OF THEIR


CHILDREN BECAME UNMANAGEABLE,


THEY'RE SHARE WHAT IT DID TO


THEIR MARRIAGE AND TO THEIR


FAITH.


NOW, GABRIEL


MACANANO'S STORY ISN'T ABOUT A


TROUBLED CHILD, IT WAS ABOUT A


TROUBLED DAD AND THAT DAD WAS


HIM, YOU'LL SEE WHY HIS KIDS


FEARED HIM AND WHAT HE DID TO


TURN HIS LIFE AROUND, BUT


FIRST, CURT SCHILLING TALKS


ABOUT BEING A MAJOR LEAGUE


PITCHER AND A DAD.


FOR 20 YEAR, MAJOR LEAGUE


PITCHER CURT SCHILLING WAS A


FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH, HE


LED THREE TEAMS WITH -- TO FOUR


WORLD SERIES APPEARANCES WITH


THREE CHAMPIONSHIPS, A NOTABLE


PERFORMANCE WAS DURING THE 2004


AMERICAN LEAGUE


CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES AGAINST THE


NEW YORK YANKEES WHEN HE


PITCHED WITH A BLOODY SUCK DUE


TO A TORN TENDON IN HIS ANKLE,


BUT WITH THE PRESSURE THAT


COMES WITH BEING A BIG LEAGUE


PITCHER, CURT AND HIS WIFE WILL


TELL YOU THEIR BIGGEST STRUGGLE


WITH AT HOME WITH THEIR THIRD


CHILD, GRANT.


WOW, THE JUMP FROM ONE TO


TWO AND TWO TO THREE IS LIKE


GOING FROM ONE TO TWO TO TWO


AND 700, NOW THAT THERE'S THREE


KIDS IN THE HOUSE, MAN TO MAN


DEFENSE NO LONGER APPLIES, YOU


HAVE TO PLAY ZONE AND THERE'S


ALWAYS ONE IN PLAY, WE COULDN'T


HAVE PICKED A THIRD ONE -- I


MEAN, HE'S A PING-PONG BALL,


RIGHT, HE'S IN PLAY ALL THE


TIME.


THREE YEARS AGO, GRANT WAS


DIAGNOSED WITH ASPERGER'S


SYNDROME, A FORM OF AUTISM IN


WHICH AN INDIVIDUAL EXHIBITS


ECCENTRIC BEHAVIOR, BUT FOR THE


FIRST 7 YEARS OF HIS LIFE,


NEITHER CURT NOR SHONDA KNEW OF


HIS CONDITION.


WHEN WAS IT THAT YOU BEGAN


TO NOTICE THAT NUMBER THREE WAS


A LITTLE DIFFERENT?


THERE WERE LITTLE THINGS HE


DID WHEN HE WAS DIFFERENT, IF


HE FELL, I COULDN'T PICK HIM UP


AND HUG HIM.


HE WOULD CRY AND I WOULD TOUCH


HIM TO SAY ARE YOU OKAY, AND HE


WOULD SAY STOP, STOP, YOU COULD


NOT COMFORT HIM AT ALL.


IN 2000, THE PHILLIES TRADED


HIM TO ARIZONA AND SHONDA


HAD TO TAKE CARE OF THE KIDS


AND THE MOVE, THINGS WITH GRANT


GOT WORSE.


YOU WANT TO HELP HIM BUT


HE'S PUSHING YOU AWAY, HOW DID


THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?


I FELT DEFEATED, I DIDN'T


KNOW HOW I WAS GOING TO CONNECT


AND BE A MOTHER TO HIM BECAUSE


I WAS DOING EVERYTHING IN MY


POWER THAT I KNEW HOW TO BE A


LOVING MOTHER AND NONE OF IT


WAS WORKING.


CURT HELPED LEAD THE DIAMOND


BACKS TO THE 2001 WORLD SERIES


AND SHORTLY AFTER, THE


SCHILLINGS HAD ANOTHER IN


ADDITION TO THE FAMILY, THEIR


YOUNGEST SON, GARRISON.


THEN IN 2004, CURT WAS TRADED


TO THE RED SOCKS BUT BY THIS


TIME, GRANT'S BEHAVIOR WAS


TAKING ITS TOLL ON THEIR


MARRIAGE.


IT MADE ME FEEL SAD, ALONE,


IT MADE ME FEEL CRAZY AND NOT A


GOOD MOTHER BECAUSE I WOULD


CALL HIM ON THE ROAD AND HE


WOULD SAY, HE DOESN'T RESPECT


YOU, YOU NEED TO DISCIPLINE HIM


MORE, AND I FELT THAT I WAS


DOING EVERYTHING I POSSIBLY


COULD, SO WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN


US WAS I DIDN'T WANT TO TELL


HIM ANYTHING BECAUSE I DIDN'T


WANT TO HEAR HIS QUICK FIX-ALL


THING WHEN HE WASN'T HERE TO


SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON.


I WAS FRUSTRATED BECAUSE I


NEVER GOT THE PHONE CALL OF HOW


WE JUST HAD THE GREATEST DAY


EVER, WE HAD SO MUCH FUN, YOU


KNOW, I'M LOOKING AT WHAT WE


HAVE AS A LIFE AND THINKING,


WE'RE THE MOST BLESSED, LUCKY


HUMAN BEINGS IN EXISTENCE AND


MAKING MILLIONS DOLLARS OF YEAR


TO PLAY BASEBALL, WE GET TO


TRAVEL ALL AROUND THE WORLD, I


ONLY GET TO WORK 6 MONTHS A


YEAR AND EVERY PHONE CALL WAS A


FIGHT, IT WAS AN ARGUMENT.


THEY BELIEVE GRANT HAD ADHD


AND WENT TO SEE A DR,, AFTER


TESTING, NOT ONLY WAS HE


DIAGNOSED WITH ADHD BUT HE WAS


ON THE SPECTRUM OF AUTISM AND


THE SCHILLINGS WERE IN DENIAL.


WE'VE KNOWN AUTISTIC KIDS.


RAIN MAN, WHEN YOU THINK


AUTISM.


SO, WHEN I WENT DO THAT


DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT WHICH I


THOUGHT I WAS GETTING THE ADHD


ONE, I GOT THAT, AND THEN HE


SAID HE'S ON THE SPECTRUM OF


AUTISM, AND I COULDN'T HAVE


FELT MORE NUMB THAN I FELT AT


THAT MOMENT.


DID YOU FEEL BAD AT ALL?


IMMENSE GUILT BECAUSE MUCH


LIKE SHE SAID, GRANT, FOR HIS


ENTIRE LIFE WAS GETTING


PUNISHED FOR THINGS HE DIDN'T


UNDERSTAND WHY HE WAS GETTING


PUNISHED FOR, WE WERE PUNISHING


HIM FOR THINGS WE COULDN'T


UNDERSTAND FROM THE FLIP SIDE.


WITH HELP FROM THE DOCTOR


AND THEIR FAITH IN CHRIST, THEY


BEGAN TO UNDERSTAND GRANT'S


CONDITION AND LEARNED HOW TO


DEAL WITH IT AND TODAY, THE


SCHILLINGS HAVE FOUND PEACE,


SHONDA HAS WRITTEN A BOOK, THE


BOOK IS BIGHTED THE BEST KIND


OF DIFFERENT AND THEY HOPE


THEIR STORY WILL HELP BRING


PEACE TO OTHERS WHO HAVE


SIMILAR STRUGGLES.


I REALIZE THAT I HAD TO


CHANGE MY APPROACH AND I HAD TO


LEARN HOW TO BRING THE BEST OUT


OF GRANT.


I ABSOLUTELY HAVE MADE PEACE


IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS BY


UNDERSTANDING THE LORD WILL


NEVER PUT SOMETHING ON YOUR


PLATE YOU CAN'T HANDLE.


CURT SCHILLING, YOU KNOW


WHAT, WHAT A GUY, AND TO


RECOGNIZE WHAT HE'S GONE


THROUGH AND BEING ON THE ROAD,


I KNOW AS A PROFESSIONAL


ATHLETE, YOU'RE IN AND OUT OF


DIFFERENT TOWNS BUT HIS WIFE


HAD THE LION SHARE OF DEALING


WITH THEIR CHILD, ASPERGER'S


SYNDROME, BEING AUTISTIC, IT'S


A DIFFICULT THING.


I WAS GOING THROUGH SOME


DIFFICULT TIMES WHEN MY SISTER


HAD PASSED, THEY GIVE US


SENSITIVITIES AND THEY CAUSE US


TO FIND A DIFFERENT PLACE IN


OURSELVES, YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY


PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT PASSIONS


IN DIFFERENT AREAS, BECAUSE


THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH


DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES, THE


APOSTLE PAUL SAID IN FIRST


CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 15 WHICH HE


HAD ASKED THREE TIMES FOR THIS


TO BE TAKEN AWAY, GOD SAID THIS


TO HIM, MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT


FOR YOU, FOR MY GRACE, MY


GRACE, MY GRACE IS MADE PERFECT


IN YOUR WEAKNESS.


AS LAURA LYNN COMES IN RIGHT


NOW, I KNOW THERE'S A LOT OF


WOMEN THAT ARE TAKING CARE OF


THOSE CHILDREN AND THE DADS ARE


ON THE ROAD.


AND THERE'S NOTHING THAT


TUGS ON OUR HEARTS WHEN OUR


KIDS ARE STRUGGLING AND


SOMETHING IS WRONG FM


GOD HAS NOT BEEN CAUGHT OFF


GUARD WITH THIS, HE WANTS TO


HELP YOU BUT HE WANTS TO GIVE


YOU SOME RELIEF, LAURA LYNN,


WHY DON'T WE PRAY FOR SOMEONE.


AND YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER,


GOD LOVES YOUR KIDS MORE THAN


YOU DO, HE REALLY LOVES THEM.


AND BECAUSE YOU'RE WORKING


HARD AND DOING WHAT YOU'RE


DOING, YOU KNOW, GOD KNOWS THAT


AS WELL, HE GIVES YOU THE TIME


THAT YOU NEED IN ORDER TO


ESTABLISH WHAT YOU HAVE TO.


LET'S PRAY, FATHER, WE JUST


THANK YOU LORD FOR EVERY FAMILY


THAT'S REPRESENTED BY EVERY


VIEWER THAT'S WATCHING RIGHT


NOW, I PRAY BLESSING INTO THE


FAMILIES, FATHER, WHEN THERE ARE


ISSUES WITH FAMILY, THEY BE


CLEARED UP, I PRAY YOUR GRACE


BE SUFFICIENT IN THAT SITUATION


AND YOU GIVE WISDOM TO THE


PARENTS, I PRAY, FATHER THAT


YOU WOULD TOUCH EVERY FAMILY,


BLESS EVERY FAMILY AND BRING


BLESSING OVER THIS ENTIRE


COUNTRY BECAUSE WE WANT TO BE A


COUNTRY THAT SEEKS YOU AND


CALLS OUT TO YOU, FATHER, WE


ARE THANKFUL THAT YOU LOVE US


AND WE SUBMIT THIS TO YOU IN


JESUS NAME, AMEN.


HEY, THE NUMBER ON THE


SCREEN, IF YOU NEED SOME EXTRA


HELP, 1-855-759-0700.


OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY.


TOO OFTEN, WE CARRY BAGGAGE


FROM OUR PAST.


YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE.


IT AFFECTS EVERYTHING AND


EVERYONE IN OUR LIVES.


IT'S ALWAYS THERE WEIGHING US


DOWN AND KEEPING US FROM


ACHIEVING TRUE HAPPINESS, BUT


DO YOU KNOW GOD NEVER MEANT FOR


US TO BE TRAPPED IN THE PAST?


YOU CAN BE FREE OF YOUR


BAGGAGE, LEARN HOW GOD'S


FORGIVENESS LEADS TO CHANGED


LIVES AND NEW BEGINNINGS.


CALL THE 700 CLUB.


HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE THE


DISCIPLES DID WHEN THEY WERE IN


A BOAT AND A FURIOUS STORM CAME


UP, THEY WERE TERRIFIED AND YET


JESUS, HE WAS ASLEEP ON THE


BOTTOM OF THE BOAT, IN MATTHEW


8, IT TELLS THE STORY OF HOW


THE DISCIPLES WENT AND THEY


WOKE HIM SAYING LORD, SAVE US,


WE'RE GOING TO DROWN, JESUS


REPLIED, YOU HAVE LITTLE FAITH,


WHY ARE YOU SO AFRAID, HE GOT


UP, HE REBUKED THE WINDS AND IT


WAS COMPLETELY CALM, THE MEN


WERE AMAZED AND ASKED, WHAT


KIND OF MAN IS THIS THAT EVEN


THE WINDS AND THE WAVES OBEY


HIM.


IT'S INTERESTING THAT JESUS


ACTUALLY TOLD THEM THAT THEY HAD


LITTLE FAITH AND HE ASKED THEM,


WHY ARE YOU SO AFRAID, BUT I'M


THINKING, WASN'T THAT OBVIOUS?


I MEAN, THESE MEN WERE


FISHERMEN AND THEY SPENT THEIR


WHOLE LIVES ON THIS WATER, THEY


HAD SEEN SEVERAL STORMS, YET


THIS ONE PANICKED THEM, JESUS


KNEW WHO HE WAS AND


THE POWER HE CARRIED.


THIS STORM DIDN'T SCARE HIM,


BUT TO THE DISCIPLES, THE STORM


REVEALED THEIR UNBELIEF BECAUSE


YOU SEE, IF THEY HAD TRULY


KNOWN WHO THIS JESUS WAS, THEY


WOULD NOT HAVE WOKEN HIM IN


THAT MANNER, THEY WOULD NOT


HAVE SPOKEN THOSE DESPERATE


WORDS OF TERROR, WE'RE GOING TO


DROWN, THEIR DREAD AND ANXIETY


EXPOSED THEIR CORE AND JESUS


KNEW, THEY DON'T TRUST ME, THEY


DON'T KNOW ME AND THEY DO NOT


BELIEVE I AM WHO I SAY I AM,


THE HEALER, THE DELIVERER AND


THE SAVIOR, IF THEY UNDERSTOOD


THE REVELATION AND THE


MAGNITUDE OF THE AUTHORITY AND


POWER THAT THIS MAN CARRIED IN


JUST THE BREATH OF HIS WORDS,


THEIR REACTION WOULD HAVE BEEN


COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.


THEN THEY WOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT


JESUS' VERY PRESENCE, IT BORE


THE WEIGHT AND INFLUENCE OF ALL


OF HEAVEN'S SUPREMACY, THEY MAY


HAVE INSTEAD AWOKEN JESUS AND


SAID, THERE'S A BIT OF A STORM


OUTSIDE BUT DON'T GET UP, JUST


SAY THE WORD, WOULD YOU JUST


SAY THE WORD AND CALM THIS


RAGING TEMPEST, YOU MAY BE IN


THAT PLACE TODAY WITH A TORNADO


BEARING DOWN ON THE


CIRCUMSTANCES OF YOUR LIFE AND


YOU MAY WONDER WHERE GOD IS AND


IT MAY SEEM LIKE HE'S JUST


ASLEEP AND NOT PAYING ANY


ATTENTION TO YOUR ANGUISH.


MY FRIEND, THE QUESTION TODAY


IS DO YOU KNOW WHO JESUS IS, DO


YOU KNOW THAT WITH ONE WORD


FROM HIS MOUTH, YOUR STORM CAN


BE OVER, THOUGH WE DO NOT


ALWAYS UNDERSTAND HIS TIMING,


HIS POWER IS UNDENIABLE, HIS


PLANS ARE PROFOUND AND CAN BE


TRUSTED, HIS STRATEGIES DEFY


HUMAN COMPREHENSION AND GOD'S


PROMISE IS THAT HE WILL NEVER


LEAVE YOU, HE WILL NEVER


FORSAKE YOU, THERE IS NO WISDOM


THAT CAN FORM AGAINST HIM, NO


ARROGANCE THAT WILL OUT WIT


HIM, HE IS MAGNIFICENT IN


BEAUTY AND RENOWNED FOR HIS


EXCELLENCE, HE IS YOUR ALL IN


ALL, THE ONLY ONE WOULD WILL


MAKE YOU GREAT, HE'S YOUR


BACKUP IN THE HEAT OF THE FRAY


AND THE AUTHOR OF EVERYTHING


MAGNIFICENT, HE IS IN THE MIDST


OF YOUR STORM AND YOU CAN TRUST


HIM.


YOU SURE CAN TRUST HIM, AND


LAURA LYNN, IT'S SO IMPORTANT


FOR US TO UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN


JESUS IS IN THE BOAT, HEY,


EVERYTHING IS ALRIGHT.


YOU REALIZE THAT WHEN JESUS GOT


UP, REBUKED THE WINDS AND THE


WAVES, HE'S GOT TO GET IN YOUR


BOAT, YOU MAY HAVE SOME STORMS


IN YOUR LIFE BUT I'M GOING PRAY


FOR YOU AND I WANT YOU TO CALL


THE NUMBER ON THE SCREEN, DON'T


TRY TO HANDLE IT BY YOURSELF,


THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE, FATHER,


I PRAY EVEN IN THIS MOMENT AS


YOU'RE STRENGTHENING SOMEONE'S


FAITH THAT YOU WOULD GRANT


THEM, LORD, THE ABILITY TO


TRUST YOU, SAY THIS WITH ME,


JESUS, BE JESUS IN ME, AMEN.


IF YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER,


1-855-759-0700, I'D LOVE TO


HEAR FROM YOU, LAURA LYNN TAKES


IT TO THE STREET AND TAKES THE


SPIRITUAL PULSE OF CANADA.


HI, GUYS.


WHERE ARE YOU GUYS FROM?


FROM GERMANY.


FROM GERMANY, YOU'RE SO


PRETTY.


IS THAT WHY YOU GUYS ARE


HANGING OUT WITH THIS PRETTY


GERMAN GORGEOUS GIRL.


NO, NO.


THAT'S NOT IT, DO YOU HAVE


ANY FAITH.


I BELIEVE IN GOD, YES, I'M A


CHRISTIAN.


WHAT ABOUT YOU, GOOD LOOKING


MAN.


YOU'RE ALL GOOD LOOKING BY THE


WAY.


THANKS FOR MENTIONING IT,


FINALLY.


WHAT ABOUT YOU, ARE YOU


CHRISTIAN?


I DO BELIEVE IN GOD BUT I'M


NOT GOING THE CHURCH QUITE


OFTEN BUT I DO BELIEVE IN GOD


AND THE BIBLE.


DO YOU BELIEVE IN JESUS THEN?


NOT THAT MUCH LIKE I BELIEVE


IN GOD.


DO YOU THINK HE WAS LYING?


THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.


HE WAS LYING, HE BELIEVED


THAT HE WAS THE SON OF GOD AND


SO ARE WE, WE'RE ALL GOD'S


CHILDREN.


JESUS COULD HAVE BEEN THE


SON OF GOD.


YEAH, HE COULD HAVE BEEN


DEFINITELY FOR SURE.


IF HE BELIEVED HE WAS THE


SON, HE EITHER WAS OR HE'S KIND


OF CRAZY, SO WHICH ONE IS IT?


SOMETHING IN BETWEEN.


SOMETHING IN BETWEEN?


HOW CAN YOU HAVE IN BETWEEN?


YOU GO AHEAD, YOU TELL ME, HOW


DO WE HAVE IN BETWEEN?


I DON'T THINK HE'S


NECESSARILY CRAZY IF HE'S NOT


THE SON OF GOD BUT TELLS PEOPLE


HE'S THE SON OF GOD BECAUSE --


ANYONE WHO CLAIMS TO BE THE


SON OF GOD BUT HE'S NOT, THAT'S


KIND OF A CRAZY THING.


WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY BEING


THE SON OF GOD?


HOW DOES --


SON OF GOD CAME TO EARTH,


BORN OF A VIRGIN SO HE WOULD


LIVE AND DIE TO TAKE AWAY THE


SINS OF THE WORLD, THAT'S THE


TRUE SON OF GOD.


I BELIEVE IT'S NECESSARY IN


ORDER TO BE BORN THAT A MAN AND


A WOMAN HAVE SEX AND THE --


SO, YOU DON'T BELIEVE


THERE COULD POSSIBLY BE


A MIRACULOUS CONCEPTION.


IF THERE WAS A GOD, COULD HE


NOT DO A MIRACLE.


OF COURSE.


THEN WHY COULDN'T IT BE


POSSIBLE.


IT COULD BE POSSIBLE, OF


COURSE.


IF THERE IS A GOD, HAVE YOU


EVER PRAYED THAT HE WOULD MAKE


HIMSELF REAL TO YOU?


ALL THE TIME, NOT ALL THE


TIME BUT A LOT OF TIMES WHEN I


REALLY WANT SOMETHING TO HAPPEN


AND I'M LIKE, PLEASE MAKE IT


HAPPEN.


SO, YOU DO ASK FOR


MIRACLES.


YES, SURE.


WELL, WHY DON'T WE PRAY AND


ASK GOD THAT HE WOULD REVEAL


HIMSELF TO YOU IF HE'S REAL.


THAT WOULD BE REALLY NICE OF


HIM.


FATHER, I JUST PRAY IN JESUS


NAME THAT YOU WOULD HELP DAVID


AND ELLY TO REALLY AND TRULY


UNDERSTAND WHO JESUS IS, AND IF


THERE IS A GOD, YOU WOULD


REVEAL THAT TO THEM AND FROM


THIS DAY ON, THEY'RE LOOKING


FOR TRUE SIGNS THAT THERE IS A


GOD AND THAT HE WOULD


MIRACULOUSLY INTERVENE IN YOUR


LIFE AND HE WOULD MAKE IT THE


BEST POSSIBLE LIFE EVER.


ARE YOU WITH ME?


YES, I WOULD LOVE THAT.


YOU WOULD LOVE THAT?


IT WOULD BE REALLY NICE, SO


I'VE DONE HIM LIKE THE BIGGEST


FAVOR, I SET HIS LIFE FREE,


WELL, I MEAN GOD DID, BUT I WAS


HIS MOST EXCELLENT TOOL.


YES, YOU WERE.


THANK YOU.


OKAY.


THANKS, YOU GUYS.


THANK YOU.


SO COOL.


YOU KNOW, IT'S INTERESTING WHEN


YOU GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE


THE SPIRITUAL PULSE, YOU FIND A


LOT OF DIFFERENT BELIEFS AS FAR


AS ENERGY, HIGHER POWER, WHAT


DO YOU NOTICE WITH THE GERMANS?


SO MUCH, THIS ONE FELLOW


BEING A CHRISTIAN FROM GERMANY,


THAT WAS REALLY NEAT AND THEN


YOU COULD TELL THE OTHER GUY IS


SORT OF A CHRISTIAN, DOES


BELIEVE IN JESUS BUT STILL NOT


TOTALLY SURE OF WHAT ALL OF


THAT MEANS AND THEN THE OTHER


FELLOW IS SAYING, I AM A


CHRISTIAN BUT I DON'T REALLY


BELIEVE IN JESUS, SO, YOU KNOW,


SOMETIMES IT'S ALL OVER THE MAP


AND WHAT I FIND IN CANADA IS


THAT PEOPLE DON'T REALLY HAVE


SOMETHING CONCRETE THAT THEY


BELIEVE IN, THERE'S A LOT OF


PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN THE


UNIVERSE AND THEY BELIEVE IN


ENERGY BUT THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT


THAT IS.


THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE AND WE


BELIEVE IN ABSOLUTE FIRST, IT'S


GOT TO BE THE TRUTH AND WE


TAKE IT AS THE TRUTH, HERE AT

CHILDREN AND WANTS TO BLESS

EVERYBODY NEED TO WATCH THIS


DVD.


WELCOME BACK TO THE 700 CLUB


CANADA, UP NEXT, GABRIEL MACANAO


LEARNS THE GREATEST


GIFT ABOUT LOVE.


MY MOM WOULD TELL ME SHE


LOVED ME AND THE NEXT MINUTE


SHE WOULD BEAT ME OVER THE HEAD


WITH THE BAMBOO WITH ONE OF


MY DAD'S KARATE STICKS, AND I


FELT IF THAT'S WHAT LOVE WAS


ALL ABOUT, I DIDN'T WANT NO


PART OF IT.


BOTH OF GABRIEL MACANANO'S


PARENTS WERE ALCOHOLICS


AND THEY BOTH ABUSED HIM


THROUGHOUT HIS CHILDHOOD.


IT WAS LIKE CHAOS INSIDE


THAT HOUSE.


WHEN THEY WOULD LEAVE AND LEAVE


US IN THE HOUSE, I WOULD PRAY


THAT THEY WOULD NEVER COME BACK.


GABRIEL STARTED


DRINKING WHEN HE WAS 7 YEARS


OLD, HE STARTED SMOKING


MARIJUANA WHEN HE WAS 8.


ONCE IT GOT INTO MY BODY AND


SYSTEM, IT'S LIKE I STEPPED OUT


OF REALITY AND INTO MY OWN


WORLD.


WHEN HE GOT OLDER, GABRIEL


ESCAPED HIS VOLATILE HOME


FOR AN EVEN MORE DANGEROUS


PLACE, A GANG, AND GABRIEL


LOVED TO FIGHT.


I GOT MORE PRAISE AT BEATING


PEOPLE UP WHEN I GOT HOME THAT,


YOU KNOW, IT FELT GOOD, I WOULD


GO GET DRUNK AND WE'D END UP IN


A FIGHT SO MY FRIENDS LOVED


COMING TO THE HOUSE, WE'RE


GOING TO GO OUT, WE'RE GOING TO


GO WHEREVER AND EVERY TIME WE'D


GO OUT, WE'D END UP IN A FIGHT.


HE WAS SOON SELLING DRUGS


AND GABRIEL GOT ADDICTED TO


COCAINE AND METH, DRUG ABUSE,


DUI'S, BURGLARY AND VANDALISM


BECAME A LIFE FOR GABRIEL, HE


WAS IN AND OUT OF JAIL FOR 12


YEARS.


WHEN I WAS RUNNING THE


STREETS OR WITH MY FRIEND, IF I


BEAT UP ONE OF MY FRIENDS, IT


WAS BECAUSE I LOVED YOU SO I


HAD A TWISTED WAY OF WHAT LOVE


WAS ALL ABOUT.


GABRIEL MET KIM IN 1993 AND


THEY MARRIED A FEW YEARS LATER,


THEY HAD TWO SONS BUT GABRIEL'S


KIDS WERE AFRAID OF HIM.


WHAT HURT ME THE MOST WAS MY


KIDS DIDN'T WANT -- THEY DIDN'T


WANT TO GET IN THE CAR WITH ME


AND GO ANYWHERE BECAUSE THEY


KNEW DAD WAS ALWAYS IN TROUBLE


AND WHEN WE GOT PULLED OVER


THAT DAD WENT IN THE POLICE CAR


AND THEY WENT SOMEWHERE ELSE.


GABRIEL GOT IN A BRUTAL


FIGHT WITH HIS BROTHER WHO WAS


ALSO ON DRUGS AND DRINKING.


HIS BROTHER ENDED UP IN THE


HOSPITAL.


MY BROTHERS AND SISTER AND


MY MOM ENDED UP GOING OVER


THERE TOO TO GO SEE HIM AND HE


WAS PRETTY BANGED UP AND THEY


WERE CALLING ME FROM OVER THERE


AND ASKED ME HOW I COULD DO


SOMETHING LIKE THAT AND I SAID,


MAN, YOU GUYS DON'T KNOW WHAT


I'VE BEEN THROUGH MY WHOLE LIFE


AND I HAD TO DEAL WITH HIM AND


TO THINK THAT AFTER THIS THAT


HE MIGHT WANT TO COME BACK AND


WHOOP ON ME AGAIN AND THAT


WASN'T GOING TO HAPPEN.


I WENT TO THE GOLF COURSE OUT


HERE, THERE WAS A LITTLE SPOT


WHERE THERE WAS LIKE A DIRTIED


AREA WITH SOME TREES WHERE NO


ONE COULD SEE ME WHEN I'M THERE


AND I GOT DONE SMOKING SOME


METH AND I PUT MY GUN IN MY


MOUTH AND IT DIDN'T GO OFF, YOU


KNOW, AND I WAS MAD.


AFTER HIS FAILED SUICIDE


ATTEMPT, GABRIEL WENT BACK TO


HIS OLD WAYS, DRUGS, VIOLENCE


AND JAIL.


I WAS IN THE CELL BY MIAMI


-- MYSELF AND I WAS SO MAD AT


GOD, I CURSED AT HIM, I SAID


YOU AIN'T NOTHING, YOU'RE


NOBODY, I GOT TO A POINT WHERE


I WAS DONE AND I FELT HIS


PRESENCE IN MY ROOM, MY CELL,


AND I KID YOU NOT, HE WAS LIKE


THIS IN MY ROOM AND ASKED ME IF


I WAS FINISHED AND I TOOK A


DEEP BREATH AND LET IT OUT, I'M


SO DOWN BUT YOU HAVE -- DONE,


BUT YOU HAVE TO SHOW ME YOU'RE


REAL, YOU'RE NOT SHOWING ME


ANYTHING.


AFTER HIS RELEASE, GABRIEL


MADE A DECISION.


YOU KNOW, THE FIRST THING I


DID WAS GO TO A MEETING AND


RAISE MY HAND, I SAID, I NEED


HELP BECAUSE IF I DON'T GET


HELP TODAY, I'M GOING TO LEAVE


THIS ROOM AND DO SOMETHING


STUPID.


A FRIEND HELPED HIM GET ON


THE RIGHT TRACK.


THIS GUY TOOK ME UNDER HIS


WING AND REALLY STARTED SHOWING


ME WHAT LIFE CAN BE LIKE AND


WHO GOD WAS.


GABRIEL'S SEARCH CONTINUED


UNTIL THE DAY HE WAS FLIPPING


THROUGH THE CHANNELS WATCHING


T.V.


I WAS WATCHING THE 700 CLUB


ONE DAY AND I WAS WATCHING PAT


ROBERTSON AND I FOLLOWED THAT


PRAYER THAT HE SAYS, HE DOES


THE SINNER'S PRAYER AND I


FOLLOWED THE PRAYER AND I FELT


SOMETHING DIFFERENT ABOUT ME


AND I STARTED ATTENDING CHURCH


REGULARLY AND STARTED REALLY


WORKING ON MYSELF TO DO


SOMETHING DIFFERENT ABOUT WHO I


WAS.


BUT GABRIEL HAD A PROBLEM.


I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO BE


ANYTHING ELSE OTHER THAN THE


PERSON I USED TO BE.


SO, HE STARTED READING HIS


BIBLE.


IN SO MANY WAYS, IT WAS


SHOWING ME WHAT I NEEDED TO DO


FOR HIM, IN TURN, WHAT HE WAS


GOING TO DO FOR ME AND IT WOULD


BE FOR HIS GLORY AND IT GAVE ME


A DIFFERENT MEANING OF WHAT MY


LIFE WAS ABOUT AND THAT IS TO


SERVE HIM AND TO SHOW OTHER


PEOPLE WHAT HE DOES WITHIN ME


BECAUSE ALL I KNOW HOW TO BE IS


ANGRY, DECEITFUL, UNWORTHY


INDIVIDUAL BUT GUIDED BY THE


HOLY SPIRIT, I GET TO TALK, I


GET TO SHARE WITH OTHERS ABOUT


WHO GOD IS.


GABRIEL HAS BEEN CLEAN FOR 8


YEARS AND HE LOVES TO TALK WITH


KIDS ABOUT THE DANGERS OF GANGS


AND HOW TO AVOID THEM.


IT'S A PASSION, NOT A JOB,


IT'S AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO


SOMETHING THAT GOD WANTS ME TO


DO, JUST LEARNING TO BE


OBEDIENT TO WHAT HE WANTS FROM


ME KNOWING THESE KIDS NEED A


LOT OF HELP.


HE SHOWED ME WHAT UNCONDITIONAL


LOVE IS, THERE'S NO STRINGS


ATTACHED TO LOVE, IT'S JUST


LOVE NO MATTER WHAT, ALL IT


TAKES IS SOME WORDS SAYING GOD,


I WANT TO KNOW YOU AND NO


MATTER WHERE YOU'RE AT, HE WILL


GRAB YOU AND HOLD YOU AND TELL


YOU THAT IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY.


GABRIEL MACANANO REALLY


FOUND OUT THAT LOVE NEVER


FAILS, I LOVE GOD AND THE WAY


HE WORKS, I CAN'T TALK ABOUT


HIM ENOUGH, I LOVE JESUS SO


MUCH AND HIS REDEEMING POWER,


YOU KNOW WHAT IT SAYS IN


CORINTHIANS 130, HE BECAME


WISDOM FROM GOD, RIGHTEOUSNESS


FROM GOD, REDEMPTION AND


SANCTIFICATION, AS LONG AS YOU'E


IN CONTACT WITH THEM, YOU


BECOME WHATEVER YOU'RE IN


CONTACT WITH, IT'S AMAZING


THOSE FORMATIVE YEARS WITH OUR


LIVES, HOW THEY CAN MAKE A


DIFFERENCE AND THEY CAN CAUSE A


LOT OF OTHER THINGS, A CHAIN


REACTION IN OUR LIVES, BUT LOVE


NEVER FAILS.


I REALLY BELIEVE THE LOVE OF


GOD IS HERE.


I'M GOING TO ASK LAURA LYNN TO


COME IN EVEN NOW BECAUSE WHAT


GABRIEL LEARNED IS THERE WAS A


NEW DAY WAITING ON HIM, AND


THIS IS SOME INFORMATION THAT I


WANT TO GET INTO YOUR HANDS


RIGHT NOW, SOME OF YOU MIGHT


THINK, I NEED A DO-OVER, I NEED


A TURN AROUND, I NEED GOD TO DO


ANOTHER WORK, SOMETHING IN MY


LIFE THAT I'VE NEVER SEEN


BEFORE, WOULD YOU CALL THE


NUMBER ON THE SCREEN,


1-855-759-0700 BECAUSE I


BELIEVE THAT YOU'RE IN THE


RIGHT POSITION FOR GOD TO JUST


BLOW INTO YOUR LIFE WITH A


MIRACLE.


AND YOU KNOW ON THE OTHER


END OF THAT NUMBER ARE PEOPLE


THAT HAVE POWERFUL FAITH, THAT


THEY JOINED IN THEIR FAITH WITH


YOURS FOR WHATEVER MIRACLE,


WHATEVER DIFFICULTIES THAT


YOU'RE GOING THROUGH, WE ARE


HERE TO SUPPORT YOU, THAT'S WHY


WE DO THIS EVERY DAY, THAT'S


WHY BRIAN AND I ARE HERE EVERY


DAY, TO JOIN WITH YOUR FAITH,


TO BUILD YOUR FAITH AND TO


INSPIRE YOU THAT THERE IS A GOD


AND HE DEEPLY LOVES YOU.


AND, FATHER, FOR ALL OF


THOSE THAT ARE RIGHT NOW LIKE


GABRIEL, THEY ARE FEELING THEY


ARE SO FAR AWAY FROM YOU, I


THANK YOU THAT IN THIS MOMENT


RIGHT NOW IS THE VERY MOMENT OF


TRUTH, FATHER, WOULD YOU PLEASE


GRAB HOLD OF THEM AND MOVE THEM


INTO THE PURPOSE THAT YOU HAVE


IN THEIR LIFE IN JESUS NAME.


IN JESUS NAME.

SCREEN, 1-855-759-0700.
