EARTHQUAKE, TSUNAMIS,

HURRICANES --

Reporter: THERE IS NO

SHORTAGE OF THINGS THAT

COULD GO WRONG.

WE COULD HAVE AN ECONOMIC

COLLAPSE, WE COULD HAVE

TERRORIST ATTACKS.

Reporter: THE QUESTION

IS, ARE YOU READY?

THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WE

SUFFER HERE IN NORTH AMERICA

IS COMPLACENCY.

Reporter: WE'LL SHOW

YOU HOW TO BRACE YOURSELF

FOR DOOM'S DAY.

AND

WHY

YOU'LL NEED MORE

THAN JUST CANNED FOOD AND

BOTTLED WATER.

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

ONCE AGAIN, THE ARAB SPRING

IS TURNING INTO A DEADLY

NIGHTMARE.

NOW THE UNITED STATES

AMBASSADOR TO LIBYA IS

DEAD.

AFTER ANGRY MUSLIMS STORMED

THE AMERICAN EMBASSY IN

BENGHAZI.

A MOB ATTACKED THE

EMBASSY IN EGYPT AS WELL,

AND U.S. OFFICIALS FEAR MORE

VIOLENCE COULD BE COMING.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS A LOOK A

THE ATTACKS AND WHAT IS

BEHIND THEM.

Reporter: A DEADLY DAY

ACROSS NORTH AFRICA AS ANGRY

MUSLIM MOBS TOOK TO THE

STREETS.

AND LIBYAN PROTESTORS KILLED

CHRIS STEVENS AND THREE

OTHER AMERICANS AT THE

CONSULATE THERE.

IT ALL STARTED IN EGYPT,

WHERE PROTESTORS SCALED THE

WALLS IN CAIRO AND TORE UP

THE AMERICAN FLAG.

THEY WERE ANGRY ABOUT A FILM

PRODUCED IN THE U.S.

PROTESTORS REPLACED THE

AMERICAN FLAG WITH A BLACK

FLAG WITH AN ISLAMIC

DESCRIPTION.

IT SAYS, QUOTE,"THERE IS NO

GOD BY ALLAH, AND MOHAMMED

IS HIS PROPHET."

WE ARE OBVIOUSLY WORKING

WITH EGYPTIAN SECURITY TO

TRY TO RESTORE ORDER AT THE

AM SEE, AN -- EMBASSY, AND

TO WORK WITH THEM TO TRY TO

GET THE SITUATION UNDER

CONTROL.

Reporter: TODAY THE

AMERICAN EMBASSY IN EGYPT

SAYS THEIR PEOPLE ARE ALL

SAFE AND ACCOUNTED FOR, BUT

THE SITUATION IS FAR FROM

UNDER CONTROL.

SHORTLY AFTER VIOLENCE

ERUPTED IN EGYPT, OFFICIALS

RECEIVED REPORTS OF A NEW

ATTACK IN BENGHAZI, LIBYA.

THEY FIRED WEAPONS AND

ROCKET-PROPELLED GRENADES.

HILLARY CLINTON SAID IN A

STATEMENT "THE UNITED STATES

DEPLORES ANY ATTEMPTS TO

DENIGRATE THE RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS OF OTHERS.

LET ME BE CLEAR, THERE IS

NEVER ANY JUSTIFICATION FOR

VIOLENT ACTS OF THIS KIND."

THE

RESPONSIBLE FOR

THE

ANTI-MUSLIM MOVIE IS IN

HIDING TODAY.

HE SAYS HIS FILM IS INTENDED

TO BE A POLITICAL STATEMENT

CONDEMNING ISLAM.

A RADICAL ISLAMIC GROUP

CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY FOR

THE ATTACKS.

LOCAL MEDIA ESTIMATED ABOUT

2,000 PEOPLE PARTICIPATED IN

THE EGYPTIAN PROTESTS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: YOU WONDER WHAT IT

IS IN THESE MUSLIMS THAT

CAUSES THEM TO GO CRAZY

BECAUSE SOMEBODY SAYS

SOMETHING ABOUT MOHAMMED,

MOST OF WHICH HAPPENS TO BE

TRUE.

HE TOOK HIS FAVORITE WIFE

WHEN SHE WAS EIGHT OR NINE

YEARS OLD, AND HE WAS 53,

AND HE BEGAN HAVING SEXUAL

ACTIONS WITH THAT 8 OR

9-YEAR-OLD CHILD.

WE CALL THAT PEDOPHILE.

HE HAD A NUMBER OF WIVES,

AND THIS MOVIE SHOWED HIM

HAVING SEXUAL INTERCOURSE

WITH ONE OF MORE OF HIS

WIVES.

MOHAMMED WAS VERY FRANK

ABOUT WHAT HE DID AND WHAT

HE DIDN'T DO, AND YOU READ

SOME OF THE WRITINGS OF

MOHAMMED AND WHAT HE HAD TO

SAY, AND IT IS ALL IN

THERE.

BUT HE SEEMED TO -- MUSLIMS

CAN HAVE FOUR WIVES, AND HE

PROBABLY HAD MORE THAN HIS

QUOTA, BUT, NEVERTHELESS,

WHY DO THEY RIOT?

WHY DO THEY KILL PEOPLE?

WAS IT ABOUT THIS RELIGION

THAT MAKES THEM SO TERRIBLY

OFFENSIVE?

THE REASON THEY'RE SO

DEFENSIVE IS BECAUSE THEY

CAN'T PROVE WHAT THEY

BELIEVE.

WHAT DO YOU THINK, IF A MAN

IS 53 YEARS OLD AND STARTS

HAVING SEX WITH AN

8-YEAR-OLD.

WELL, IT VIOLATES ALL OF

THE DIFFERENT STANDARDS.

WHEN I WAS WATCHING ALL OF

THE NEWS, THE THING THAT

BOTHERED ME THE MOST, WHEN

THERE WERE SO MANY THINGS

GOING ON IN LIBYA, WE SENT

OUR TROOPS OVER THERE TO

PROTECT THEM.

AND HOW QUICKLY PEOPLE

FORGET HOW YOU'RE

RETAILIATEING AGAINST US.

Pat: GOOD THINKING.

YEAH, THEY DON'T APPRECIATE

WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

THERE WAS AN ARTICLE TODAY

ABOUT SHOULD WE HAVE A

PRESENCE IN THE MIDDLE

EAST?

WE OBVIOUSLY HAVE TO PROTECT

THE OIL, WE HAVE TO PROTECT

THE SUEZ CANAL, AND WE HAVE

TO PROTECT THE TRADE ROUTES,

AND IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT

PART OF THE WORLD.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU, ISHMAL,

THE BIBLE SAYS, WAS LIKE A

WILD DONKEY.

AND APPARENTLY THAT SPIRIT

HAS PERVADED THESE PEOPLE,

AND IT'S JUST CRAZY.

BUT THEY DO IT.

ONE MS. UNIVERSE CONTEST,

AND THEY GO CRAZY.

ONE CARTOON ABOUT MOHAMMED

AND THEY GO CRAZY.

MAYBE SANITY WILL BE

RESTORED ONE DAY, BUT IT

WON'T BE ANY TIME SOON.

LEE WEBB HAS THE REST OF OUR

TOP STORIES FROM THE CBN

NEWS.

LEE?

Lee: THE WHITE HOUSE

DENIES REPORTS THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA FAILED TO

MEET WITH BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU.

THE ISRAEL PAPER REPORTED

THAT NETANYAHU WANTED THE

MEETING, BUT THE

ADMINISTRATION SAYS THE TWO

WILL NOT BE IN THE CITY AT

THE SAME TIME.

THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS THE

PRESIDENT DID PHONE

NETANYAHU TO TALK ABOUT

IRAN.

MEANWHILE, NETANYAHU HAS

CRITICIZED WASHINGTON'S

REFUSAL TO GIVE DETAILS OF

WHAT WOULD PROVOKE A U.S.LED

MILITARY STRIKE AGAINST

IRANIAN NUCLEAR FACILITIES.

HE SAYS GIVING THEM

DEADLINES IS

COUNTER-PRODUCTIFF.

COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE.

THEY SAY WAIT, THERE IS

STILL TIME.

AND I SAY, WAIT UNTIL WHAT?

WAIT UNTIL WHEN?

THOSE IN THE INTERNATIONAL

COMMUNITY WHO REFUSE TO PUT

RED LINES BEFORE IRAN DON'T

HAVE A MORAL RIGHT TO PLACE

A RED LINE BEFORE ISRAEL.

Lee: THIS WILL BE THE

FIRST TIME PRIME MINISTER

NETANYAHU PRASTLES TO

TRAVELS TO THE U.S. WITHOUT

SEEING THE PRESIDENT.

PAT, THAT IS THE $64,000

QUESTION: WAIT FOR WHAT?

Pat: VERY BRILLIANTLY

SAID BY NETANYAHU.

THESE GUYS AREN'T FOOLISH,

AND THEY DO KNOW AN ELECTION

IS COMING UP, AND THEY DO

KNOW THE JEWISH COMMUNITY.

WE UNDERSTAND, AND WE DID A

STORY ON IT YESTERDAY, THE

NUMBER OF AMERICANS WHO LIVE

IN ISRAEL, WHO ARE VERY PRO

ISRAELI, AND WHO DO NOT LIKE

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

SO THEY'RE GOING TO BE A

SOLID BLOCK VOTING

REPUBLICAN.

AND WAS NETANYAHU TRYING TO

SEND A SIGNAL TO THE JEWISH

PEOPLE, THE AMERICANS?

IT IS HARD TO SAY.

BUT THEIR ROMANCE WITH THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY, WHICH GOES

BACK TO FRANKLIN ROOS VELTD,

IS GETTING SERIOUSLY FRAYED

BY THE ACTIONS OF THIS

ADMINISTRATION.

Lee: MOODY'S SAYS IT

WILL LIKELY CUT THE U.S.

CREDIT RATING IF NEGOTIATORS

CANNOT REACH A DEAL.

IF CONGRESS DOES NOT MAKE A

DEAL, AUTOMATIC SPENDING

CUTS WILL BE KICK IN.

AND MANY ECONOMISTS WARN IT

COULD LEAD TO ANOTHER

RECESSION AND DRIVE UP THE

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE.

THE NATION'S THIRD LARGEST

SCHOOL DISTRICT REMAINS

CLOSED TODAY.

TEACHERS IN CHICAGO ARE ON

STRIKE OVER MAYOR RON

EMMANUEL'S EVALUATION.

THE UNION SAYS IT IS UNFAIR

TO TEACHERS IN

UNDERPRIVILEGED AND

UNDERPERFORMING SCHOOLS.

THE UNION ALSO WANTS

TEACHERS WHO ARE LAID OFF

AND SCHOOLS CLOSED TO BE THE

FIRST TO BE HIRED BACK WHEN

JOBS OPEN UP IN THAT SCHOOL

DISTRICT.

BUT SCHOOL PRINCIPALS SAY

THA COULD FORCE THEM TO

BRING BACK UNQUALIFIED

TEACHERS.

THE UNION SAYS THERE WILL BE

NO RESOLUTION UNTIL THEY

AGREE ON ALL 50 PROVISIONS.

THEY MAKE AN AVERAGE OF

76,000 DOLLARS A YEAR.

AND 47% OF THE CITY'S VOTERS

SUPPORT THE TEACHERS'

UNION.

39% ARE AGAINST THE STRIKE.

PAT?

Pat: YOU KNOW, IT IS AN

AMAZING THING.

I THINK THE NUMBER I'VE SEEN

IS AT LEAST 60% OF THE

TEACHERS IN CHICAGO SEND

THEIR CHILDREN TO PRIVATE

SCHOOLS BECAUSE THEY REALIZE

HOW BAD THE SCHOOL SYSTEM

IS.

AND WHAT RON EMMANUEL IS

TRYING TO DO IS GET SOME

KIND OF DISCIPLINE AND ORDER

AND REGULATION INTO THIS.

I'M NOT IN FAVOR OF TEACHING

TO A TEST.

I THINK THAT'S WRONG.

I THINK TO RUN A SCHOOL

SYSTEM, TO TEACH YOUR

CHILDREN TO PASS A TEST IS

NOT A SUCCESSFUL WAY.

IT IS WRONG.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, THE TEST

SCORES OF STUDENTS, THE

ACHIEVEMENTS OF STUDENTS ARE

INDICIA OF THE TEACHING.

AND THE IDEA YOU HAVE TO

FORCE BACK HIRING

INCOMPETENT TEACHERS BECAUSE

THEY'RE FIRST BY

SENIORITY -- PUBLIC SERVICE

UNIONS ARE WRONG.

THEY'RE WRONG FOR AMERICA.

THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BE

PUBLIC SERVANTS, AND THEY

CANNOT HAVE UNIONS THAT

MITIGATE AGAINST THE WELFARE

OF THE COMMUNITY.

THIS IS A FIGHT, AND IT

COULD CARRY DOWN TO THE

ELECTIONS.

WE TALKED ABOUT ONE ELECTION

HOT SPOT, WHICH WILL BE

ISRAEL, AND THIS IS THE

SECOND ELECTION HOT SPOT

BECAUSE IF THE UNIONS TURN

AGAINST OBAMA, OR IF HE

COMES OUT AND DOES SOMETHING

UNPOPULAR, IT IS GOING TO BE

VERY BAD.

BUT HE'S BEING BLAMED FOR IT

BECAUSE RON EMMANUEL WAS HIS

GUY.

WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

BUT THESE PEOPLE WERE PRETTY

WELL-PAID.

I DON'T WANT TO DENIGRATE

ANY TEACHERS, BUT $76,000 A

YEAR IS A GOOD SALARY.

I THINK IT IS A GOOD

SALARY, BUT NOW I'M GOING TO

BE FOR THE TEACHERS.

MY BROTHER LIVES OUTSIDE OF

CHICAGO AND WE HAD THIS

CONVERSATION.

WHEN IT COMES TO TEACHERS,

THE VERY HEART AND ESSENCE

OF TEACHERS -- THEY HAVE A

HEART AND LOVE FOR KIDS.

AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME WHEN

THEY KNOW THE KIDS SHOULD BE

IN SCHOOL AND THEY'RE

STRIKING, THEY REALLY ARE

CONVICTED.

THEY HAVE SOME MAJOR

CONVICTIONS OF WHAT IS GOING

ON.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT

THE TEACHERS HAVE THEIR

WEALTH AS WELL.

WHAT IS IT, RON EMMANUEL --

Pat: ROM.

MAYBE THE THOUGHT IS HE

IS COMING IN HEAVY HANDED

AND THEY NEED MORE

NEGOTIATION.

WE'RE HAVING A CONVERSATION,

AND SO HE WAS GIVING ME SOME

INSIGHT.

Pat: YOU'RE A SINGLE

MOM?

AND YOU GO TO WORK.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE SINGLE

MOTHERS WHO'S CHILDREN CAN'T

GO TO SCHOOL?

THERE IS A CASCADE OF

CONSEQUENCES.

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH

THAT.

Pat: AND TO STRIKE AT

THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, IT

IS OUTRAGEOUS.

BUT HASN'T THIS BEEN

GOING ON FOR MONTHS, BUT

THEY HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO

MEET IT?

Pat: BUT THE TEACHERS

SAY THIS IS IT, TAKE IT OR

LEAVE IT, MY WAY OR THE

HIGHWAY?

THE SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS A

RIGHT TO SAY WE DEMAND

QUALITY.

WE WANT YOU TO MEET CERTAIN

STANDARDS, AND TEACHERS

DON'T WANT TO DO THAT, AND

THEY HAVE TO.

WE HAVE TO LOOK AFTER OUR

CHILDREN.

OKAY.

WELL, LEE'S GOT MORE ON

THIS.

SOME GOOD NEWS FROM THE

CHURCHES IN CHICAGO.

LEE?

Lee: CHICAGO CHURCHES

ARE STEPPING UP TO HELP THE

CHILDREN WHO ARE OUT OF

SCHOOL BECAUSE OF THE

STRIKE.

MANY ARE OPENING THEIR DOORS

TO HELP FEED CHILDREN WHO

WOULD NORMALLY EAT THEIR

MEALS AT SCHOOL.

AND SOME CHURCH LEADERS ARE

SPEAKING OUT, CALLING ON

BOTH SIDES TO COME TO AN

AGREEMENT TO GET THE

CHILDREN BACK IN THE

CLASSROOM.

OUR KIDS ARE ALREADY

BEHIND, EVERY DAY THAT

THEY'RE OUT OF SCHOOL,

THEY'RE FALLING DEEPER

BEHIND.

SO I JOIN THIS BODY OF

CLERGY TO LEND VOICE, TO SAY

LET'S GET A DEAL TONIGHT, SO

THAT OUR CHILDREN CAN PURSUE

THEIR DREAMS.

Lee: THE CHICAGO SCHOOL

DISTRICT HAS ASKED

ORGANIZATIONS LIKE CHURCHES

TO PLAN DAY ACTIVITIES TO

KEEP CHILDREN SAFE DURING

THE STRIKE.

A NEW STUDY SHOWS MOST

CHURCH-GOING CHRISTIANS DO

NOT READ THE BIBLE EVERY

DAY.

LIFEWAY RESEARCH FOUND THAT

90% OF CHURCH--GOERS AGREE

WITH THE STATEMENT, "I

DESIRE TO PLEASE AND HONOR

CHILDREN IN ALL I DO."

BUT ONLY 19% READ THE BIBLE

EVERY DAY.

ABOUT 25% READ THE BIBLE A

FEW TIMES A WEEK.

14% SAID THEY READ THE BIBLE

ONCE A WEEK, AND 22% SAID

ONCE A MONTH.

AND 18% RARELY OR NEVER READ

THE BIBLE.

THE APOSTLE PAUL VIEWED

SCRIPTURE AS VITAL TO AA

CHRISTIAN'S GROWTH.

HE WROTE THIS "ALL SCRIPTURE

IS GOD-BREATHED, AND IT IS

USEFUL FOR TEACHING,

CORRECTING AND TRAINING IN

RIGHTEOUSNESS."

STUDENTS ACROSS BRITAIN ARE

BEING WATCHED, EVEN WHILE

THEY'RE IN THE BATHROOM.

MORE THAN 200 HIGH SCHOOLS

HAVE SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS IN

BATHROOMS AND LOCKER ROOMS.

ONE SCHOOL OFFICIAL SAYS THE

CAMERAS ARE NECESSARY TO

CATCH KIDS SMOKING AND

BULLYING IN SCHOOL.

THEY SAY THEY ARE POINTED AT

THE SINKS, NOT INSIDE THE

CUBICALS, AND THEY SAY THE

IMAGES ARE REVIEWED ONLY IF

AN INCIDENT IS REPORTED.

AND THE VIDEO IS DELETED

AFTER 30 DAYS.

CIVIL RIGHTS GROUPS, THOUGH,

CLAIM THE CAMERAS ARE AN

INVASION OF PRIVACY.

Pat: I WOULDN'T WANT A

CAMERA IN MY BATHROOM.

WHO WANTS A CAMERA INTO

THE BATHROOM?

Pat: GOING INTO THE

PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE?

THAT IS ABSURD.

IT IS ABSURD ON SO MANY

LEVELS.

Pat: I'M AN ANGLOPHILE,

BUT I TELL YOU THIS BIG

BROTHER SYNDROME HAS SEIZED

THAT NATION.

THEY'VE GOT CAMERAS CAMERAS

ON EVERY CORNER AND THEY'RE

MONITORING THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE.

SHOUT FREEDOM, FOLKS.

CAST OFF THE YOLK OF

BONDAGE.

FREEDOM IN THE BATHROOM.

WHEN YOU WERE LITTLE, PAT,

WERE YOU IN THE BOY SCOUTS?

Pat: YES.

I WASN'T A VERY GOOD BOY

SCOUT, BUT I WAS IN THEM.

I COULDN'T BUILD A FIRE WITH

TWO MATCHES, AND THAT KEPT

ME FROM MOVING UP IN THE

RANKS.

THAT'S A DRAG.

I WAS NEVER A GIRL SCOUT,

BUT I WAS A BROWNIE.

Pat: AND YOU SOLD

COOKIES?

WE NEVER GOT TO THAT.

I THINK I DROPPED OUT BEFORE

THAT.

Pat: THE BROWNIES SOLD

COOKIES.

I THINK I ONLY DID IT FOR

ABOUT A YEAR.

IF YOU WERE A BOY SCOUT, YOU

KNOW THE MOTTO OF BOY SCOUTS

IS "BE PREPARED."

COMING UP WE'RE GOING TO

MEET PEOPLE WHO TAKE THAT TO

HEART.

YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO

FEED YOUR FAMILY, FEED YOUR

NEIGHBOR, AND HELP A

FRIEND.

AND WE'LL SHOW YOU WHAT

YOU NEED TO HAVE ON HAND IN

CASE OF AN EMERGENCY.

SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Pat: WHAT IS A

PREPPER?

THEY ARE NOT PEOPLE WHO GO

TO PREP SCHOOLS.

THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE

PREPARING FOR THE ULTIMATE

DISASTER, WHATEVER IT

HAPPENS TO BE.

I WANT TO POINT OUT,

KRISTI --

YES, PAT.

Pat: THAT YOU HAVE IN

YOUR HOME AN ELECTRIC

GENERATOR?

NO.

Pat: YOU'RE NOT

PREPPED.

I'M KIND OF PREPPED.

Pat: WHAT DO YOU DO IF

THE POWER GOES OFF?

I KNOCK ON YOUR DOOR AND

SAY, HEY, PAT, YOU GOT A

GENERATOR?

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: WELL, GAS -- IF

ELECTRICITY GOES OUT -- WE

WERE UP IN THE MOUNTAIN, AND

EVERYTHING WENT OUT.

THAT LAST STORM, IT KNOCKED

OUT EVERYTHING.

PEOPLE OUT IN WEST VIRGINIA

WERE DRIVING ALL THE WAY TO

LEXINGTON, VIRGINIA, TO GET

GAS IN THEIR CARS BECAUSE

THE FILLING STATIONS DIDN'T

HAVE ELECTRICITY.

TRAGEDY, IT CAN HAPPEN TO

US.

SO I WANT TO URGE PEOPLE TO

GET A GENERATOR.

AND GET A GAS-FIRED

GENERATOR.

AND IF YOU COOK WITH GAS, AS

OPPOSED TO ELECTRICITY,

YOU'VE GOT SOMETHING.

A PROPANE TANK OR

SOMETHING.

YOU REMEMBER CHUCK

HOLTON, HE IS PHENOMENAL,

AND HE WILL BE HERE TO TELL

US MORE.

Pat: THE MORE

UNCERTAINTY THERE IS IN OUR

COUNTRY, THE MORE THE RANKS

OF THESE PREPPERS CONTINUES

TO GROW.

CHUCK HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: WHEN AN

UNEXPECTED SUMMER STORM

KNOCKED OUT POWER IN THE MID

ATLANTIC REGION IN JULY,

MORE THAN 4 MILLION PEOPLE

WENT WITHOUT POWER FOR UP TO

TWO WEEKS.

IN ADDITION, A SEVERE

DROUGHT IS PUTTING A SERIOUS

STRAIN ON THE NATION'S

INFRASTRUCTURE.

COUPLED WITH THE THREAT OF A

CURRENCY COLLAPSE, CIVIL

UNREST OR OTHER NIGHTMARE

SCENARIOS, STOCKING FOR THE

UNEXPECTED IS LOOKING MORE

POPULAR.

A GROWING SEGMENT IS ASKING

THE QUESTION: WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT FOR

MORE THAN JUST A FEW DAYS?

MANY OF THESE PREPPERS THINK

THE RECORD-SETTING BLACKOUT

COULD BE JUST A FREE VIEW OF

THINGS TO COME.

WE CAN HAVE AN ECONOMIC

COLLAPSE.

WE CAN CAN HAVE TERRORIST

ATTACKS.

WE CAN HAVE SOCIAL UNREST,

NATURAL DISASTER,

EARTHQUAKES, TSUNAMIS,

HURRICANES.

Reporter: KEITH IS A

DIE-HARD PREPPER AND

RECENTLY STARTED A BUSINESS

HELPING OTHER OTHERS OTHERS

GET READY, TOO.

THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WE

SUFFER HERE IN AMERICA IS

COMPLACENCY.

THEY FIGURE SINCE NOTHING

HAS HAPPENED IN SEVERAL

YEARS, NOTHING WILL EVER

HAPPEN.

SURVIVORS ARE SOMETIMES

PORTRAYED AS CRAZIES.

BUT BEING PREPARED IS MORE

POPULAR THAN EVER.

THIS WEEKEND, IN THE

MOUNTAINS OF NORT NORTH

CAROLINA, A COUPLE THOUSAND

PEOPLE GOT TOGETHER TO

DISCUSS THE RISK AND FIND

OUT WHAT THEY CAN DO ABOUT

THEM.

IT IS VERY ENVIRONMENTAL,

VERY GREEN.

IT TAKES US OFF OF FOSSEL

FUELS, AND VERY EASY TO DO.

Reporter: JOEL

HENDERSON IS THE CO-OWNER OF

GREEN GOLD FILTERS, ONE OF

THE VENDORS AT THE PREPPERS

CONVENTION.

HIS MISSION IS HELPING FOLKS

TO ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING THAT

AMERICA HAS BEEN TRYING TO

DO FOR YEARS, RUN A VEHICLE

WITHOUT FOREIGN OIL.

IF ANYBODY HAS A DIESEL

OIL, TRUCK, TRACTOR, YOU CAN

USE COOKING OIL AS AN

ALTERNATIVE DIESEL FUEL.

YOU GO TO THIS LOCAL

RESTAURANT IN NASHVILLE,

INDIAN RESTAURANT, THIS IS

THEIR USED COOKING OIL THEY

WERE THROWING AWAY, AND WE

RAN IT THROUGH OUR FILTER

SYSTEM, AND NOW WE HAVE A

DIESEL FUEL I'LL PUT RIGHT

IN MY TANK.

Reporter: THIS MOVEMENT

IS BEING HELPED WITH NEW

TELEVISION SHOWS.

THE MOST POPULAR IS

"NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC'S

DOOM'S DAY PREPPERS."

IT IS THE HIGHEST RATED

SHOW RIGHT NOW ON NATIONAL

GEOGRAPHIC.

IT IS THE SHOW ABOUT YOUR

AVERAGE AMERICAN FAMILY,

UNIQUE PEOPLE, THAT ARE

PREPPING FOR ANY PROBLEMS.

WHETHER THAT BE AN ECONOMIC

COLLAPSE, TO SOLAR PLANS,

2012.

NO MATTER WHAT IT IS,

THEY'RE GOING TO BE BE

PREPARED.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

CHALLENGES FOR THE SHOW IS

MOST PREPPERS AREN'T EAGER

TO ADVERTISE THEIR

STOCKPILES, BECAUSE IF THE

BOTTOM DROPS OUT, LOOTING

COULD BE A REAL PROBLEM.

WE UNDERSTAND IT COULD BE

A RISK TO PEOPLE, BUT WE DO

RESPECT PEOPLE'S PRIVACY.

ON THE SHOW, WE DON'T HAVE

TO SAY YOUR FIRST NAME OR

LAST NAME.

WE DON'T HAVE TO SAY WHERE

YOU'RE FROM.

WE HAVE EACH PREPPER GIVE A

TAKE AWAY TO OUR VIEWERS SO

THEY CAN LEARN MORE.

Reporter: BUT KEITH

SAYS THE FIRST STEP TO BEING

PREPARED HAS NOTHING TO DOXv

WITH CANNED FOOD OR BOTTLED

WATER.

YOUR FIRST THING IN

PREPAREDNESS FOR ME

PERSONALLY IS YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

THAT'S THE VERY FIRST

THING.

IF YOU BUILD A SOLID

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST, THEN AFTER THAT, IF

YOU CAN GET FOOD, WATER

STORED AWAY, A LITTLE SAFE

RETREAT.

IT WILL ALL FALL IN PLACE.

YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO FEED

YOURSELF, FEED YOUR FAMILY,

HELP A NEIGHBOR, HELP A

FRIEND.

100 YEARS AGO, IT WASN'T

STRANGE FOR PEOPLE TO HAVE

FOOD SUPPLIES IN THEIR

BASEMENT.

BUT THAT HAS CHANGED.

MANY DON'T HAVE ANY FOOD

SUPPLY OR EVEN AN EMERGENCY

KIT.

BUT MAYBE IT IS NOT A BAD

IDEA TO STOCK UP, JUST IN

CASE.

FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION

IN NORTH CAROLINA, I'M CHUCK

HOLTON FOR CBN NEWS.

Pat: CHUCK, ARE THERE

WITH AUTOMATIC WEAPONS,

READY TO BLOW AWAY THE

INVADERS.

IF THE APOCALYPSE DOESN'T

COME, IT IS PROBABLY A GOOD

IDEA TO HAVE SUPPLIES.

Pat: I READ ABOUT

PEOPLE THAT GET STUCK IN

SNOWSTORMS, AND THE PEOPLE

WHO HAVE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF

PREPARATION SURVIVE AND THE

OTHERS DIE.

THAT'S RIGHT.

IT WILL ALLOW YOU TO STAY

ALIVE ENOUGH TO GET TO

HELP.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE'VE BEEN

TALKING ABOUT IS THE GO

BAG.

YOU SPEND A THIRD OF YOUR

LIFE AT WORK.

KRISTI, IF YOU HAVE TO WALK

HOME IN THOSE SHOES, YOU'D

BE IN TROUBLE.

MAYBE IT WOULDN'T BE A BAD

IDEA TO HAVE SOME SNEAKERS

IN YOUR CAR AND SOME WATER,

A POWER BAR.

THERE IS A WHOLE INDUSTRY

ABOUT PREPPING IN SURVIVAL,

AND THEY HAVE THE NITROGEN

PACKS AND M.R.E.s, BUT YOU

DON'T HAVE TO HAVE

EVERYTHING.

Pat: CAN YOU GET

M.R.E.s --

WHAT IS AN M.R.E.?

MEALS READY TO EAT.

WE SAY MEALS REJECTED BY THE

ENEMY.

Pat: HORRIBLE-TASTING

GARBAGE.

YOU JUST BUY A LITTLE

MORE EVERY TIME YOU GO TO

THE STORE OF WHAT YOU

USUALLY EAT.

GET SOME EXTRA RICE AND

BEANS AND STAPLE FOODS.

GET SOME COFFEE AND BACON.

IF YOU HAD EVERYTHING YOU

NEEDED TO SURVIVE, AND YOU

DIDN'T HAVE BACON AND

COFFEE, WOULD YOU REALLY

CARE?

Pat: BUT HOW LONG WOULD

THIS LAST?

YOU HAVE A 30-DAY SUPPLY?

IT WOULDN'T HURT TO HAVE

30 DAYS.

Pat: IF SOMETHING

REALLY BAD HAPPENED, IT

WOULD BE A LOT LONGER THAN

30 DAYS.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

BUT WE'RE LESS RESILIENT AS

A CHLT CULTURE THAN WE EVER

HAVE BEEN.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO DO THIS.

AND IF YOU DON'T, YOU BECOME

A LIABILITY TO THE SOCIETY.

AS CHRISTIANS, I THINK IT IS

IMPORTANT FOR US TO BE

PREPARED, SO NOT ONLY CAN WE

TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN

FAMILIES, BUT WE CAN HELP

OTHERS.

Pat: BUT WE'RE NOT

GOING TO GO INTO BUNKERS

WITH AUTOMATIC WEAPONS, AND

IF THEY TRY TO TAKE OUR FOOD

WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK.

FOOD, WE'RE GOING TO BLOW

THEM AWAY.

NO, WE'RE NOT.

STAPLES, WATER, BEANS,

MILK --

ONE GALLON PER PERSON PER

DAY.

Pat: I WAS THERE ON THE

MOUNTAIN WHEN EVERYTHING

IT.

DID YOU LOSE POWER?

Pat: DID I EVER.

AND I HAD A 100-KILOWATT

GENERATOR, AND GUESS WHAT?

IT GOT HIT BY LIGHTNING.

OH.

SO WHAT DID YOU DO, PAT?

Pat: SO MY WIFE AND I

ATE BY CANDLELIGHT, AND WE

HAD A GAS STOVE AND WE

COOKED BY GAS AND IT WAS

VERY ROMANTIC.

NINE MONTHS LATER --

DEE DEE IS GOING TO BE

EXPECTING.

WHEN OUR POWER WENT OUT

FOR FOUR DAYS, ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT WE FOUND IS

THAT -- I LIVE IN A LOG

HOME.

WE HAD LOTS OF CANDLES AND

LANTERNS AND STUFF, BUT

THAT'S A FIRE HAZARD.

THESE THINGS ARE ALL OVER

OUR FRONT YARD.

THEY ARE SOLAR LIGHTS THAT

GO ALONG OUR SIDEWALK.

AND WE TOOK THEM INSIDE AND

THE KIDS USED THEM AS

FLASHLIGHTS.

Pat: AND HOW MUCH LIFE

DO THEY HAVE?

THEY'LL GO ALL NIGHT

LONG.

THEY HAVE A COUPLE OF

BATTERIES IN THERE.

THOSE ARE THE THINGS MANY

OF US PUT ON OUR LAWN.

Pat: THIS LITTLE

BABY -- I DON'T HAVE ONE.

THIS IS A REALLY GOOD

IDEA.

BECAUSE IF THE

COMMUNICATIONS GO OUT, YOU

NEED TO HAVE SOME WAY TO

LISTEN TO FIND OUT WHAT IS

GOING ON.

Pat: WHERE DO YOU GET

THESE THINGS?

YOU CAN GET THEM ON THE

INTERNET OR WAL-MART, ALL

OVER THE PLACE.

THIS IS SOLAR-POWERED, AND

YOU CAN CRANK IT IF THERE IS

NO SUN.

YOU CAN POWER IT THAT WAY.

IT HAS A FLASHLIGHT AND

LASER CANNON.

Pat: FOR AN

EMERGENCY --

YOU ARE LIKE TWO LITTLE

BOYS IN A CANDY STORE.

Pat: NO.

WHEN THE POWER GOES OUT, YOU

HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING

BATTERY-POWERED.

AND MOST PEOPLE -- I DON'T

HAVE ONE.

THAT'S RIGHT.

IT IS NOT A BAD IDEA.

HERE IS SOMETHING

INTERESTING -- THIS IS

COOL.

THIS IS COOL.

HE'S GOING TO TELL YOU.

WE HAD TO CHARGE OUR

PHONES WHEN THE POWER WENT

OUT, AND I HAD JUST BOUGHT

THIS FOR CAMPING.

THIS IS A CAMP STOVE.

IT IS CALLED BIOLIGHT, AND

IT RUNS ON WOOD.

TWIGS.

THE HEAT FROM THE FIRE

CHARGES THE BATTERY, WHICH

THEN WILL CHARGE YOUR CELL

PHONE.

ISN'T THAT AMAZING.

?

WE WERE BACK IN THE

BACKYARD --

Pat: WHERE DO YOU GET

THAT?

ON THE INTERNET.

Pat: WHAT'S THIS BABY?

THIS IS A SOLAR GENERATOR

I BOUGHT AFTER ALL OF THIS

HAPPENED.

IT HAS A SOLAR PANEL HERE.

Pat: I SEE YOU'VE GOT

YOUR GUN, READY TO BLAST

SOMEBODY.

AND THE BATTERY WILL RUN

A LAPTOP, A FAN, AND CHARGE

YOUR PHONE.

Pat: WHERE DO YOU GET

THAT THING?

ON THE INTERNET.

ON THE INTERNET, THAT'S

RIGHT.

AMAZON.CA, $275, OR

SOMETHING.

THIS IS A SOLAR GENERATOR,

AND THERE ARE LOTS OF THEM

OUT THERE.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST, LET'S

TALK ABOUT TWO THINGS:

FUEL -- WHEN THE POWER GOES

OUT, GAS STATIONS CANNOT

PUMP FUEL.

IT WOULDN'T HURT TO HAVE A

FEW GALLONS OF GAS, AND

SECURITY.

THERE WAS LOOTING TAKING

PLACE IN THE TOWN WHERE I

LIVE WITHIN 12 HOURS OF THE

POWER GOING OUT.

Pat: WHAT DO YOU DO,

SHOOT THE LOOTERS.

WELL, YOU NEED TO BE ABLE

TO PROTECT YOUR FAMILY.

I KNOW THAT'S A SENSITIVE

SUBJECT.

Pat: THIS THING RIGHT

HERE IS -- I'M NOT GOING TO

SHOOT YOU.

IT'S A PROP, FOLKS.

IT'S A PROP.

Pat: THIS WOULD BE

ENOUGH TO GET RID OF A

LOOTER.

IT CERTAINLY WOULD SCARE

ME AWAY IF I SAW YOU

CARRYING THAT THING.

Pat: IT'S GOT BULLETS,

AND IF ONE OF THEM HITS YOU,

IT WILL BLOW OVER YOUR

STOMACH.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS, IT IS

IMPORTANT TO BE ABLE TO

PROTECT YOUR FAMILIES AND

DISCOURAGE THE PEOPLE THAT

WOULD TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE

SITUATION.

Pat: WE'RE SUPPOSED TO

BE SPEAKING LOVE, BUT

CHUCK'S A TROUPER.

DID YOU EVER USE ONE OF

THOSE THINGS?

I THINK PROTECTING MY

FAMILY IS THE MOST LOVING

THING I CAN DO FOR THEM.

Pat: REMEMBER MICHAEL

DECAUCUS SAYS IF SOMEBODY

WAS RAPING MY WIFE, I

WOULDN'T GO IN THERE AND

KILL HIM BECAUSE I'M A MAN

OF LOVE.

HE LOST THE ELECTION.

I WOULDN'T VOTE FOR HIM

THEN, EITHER.

Pat: THAT'S WHY THEY

VOTED FOR GEORGE BUSH.

THIS IS FOR GASOLINE.

I LOVE THESE --

THEY'RE REALLY CUTE,

TOO.

LIKE $2 A POP.

Pat: WHAT ARE THEY

CALLED?

SOLAR L.E.D. LIGHTS.

Pat: GET THEM ON THE

INTERNET.

ALL RIGHT, YALE.

Y'ALL, THEY'RE TELLING ME

TO WRAP IT UP.

Pat: THE SURVIVAL OF

AMERICA IS AT STAKE, AND YOU

WANT TO HURRY UP AND GET A

COMMERCIAL.

NO, BUT IT IS LIKE TWO

LITTLE GADGET GUYS.

AS YOU CONTINUE TO TALK

ABOUT THE TRINKETS IN

SURVIVAL, CHECK OUT CHUCK'S

BLOG, CALLED

bootsonthegroundgustanandi

AND IT IS ON CBN.COM.

THEY'RE STILL TALKING.

YES.

Pat: I WANT TO ASK A

QUESTION.

OKAY, PAT, GO.

Pat: YOU'RE JUST

TALKING SO MUCH.

IN AN EMERGENCY, YOU DON'T

LET THE ROME D WOMEN DID

ALL OF THAT TALKING.

WHERE IS THAT GUN -- I'M

JUST KIDDING.

Pat: CHUCK, HAVE YOU

GOT A FACT SHEET ON ALL OF

THIS STUFF.

THERE WAS A FACT SHEET

THAT PAT WASN'TED LISTENING

WHEN I SAID IT, AND IT IS

CALLED "BOOTS ON THE

GROUND," AND IT IS AVAILABLE

ON CBNNEWS.COM.

Pat: CHUCK, YOU'RE

TREMENDOUS, BROTHER.

THANK YOU.

CAN I WRAP IT NOW?

Pat: WRAP WHAT?

CHUCK, IT WAS LOVELY.

YOU GUYS FINISH YOUR G.I.

JOE TALK.

I THOUGHT IT WAS ON A

COOKING SHOW.

Pat: YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO

BE THE WEAKER SEX.

THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT THE

WEAKER, AND HE MEANS WE'RE

SO DELEGATE BUT WE'RE

STRONG.

DON'T MAKE HER MAD.

SHE IS GOING TO START THAT

HEAD SHAKING IN A MINUTE AND

WE'RE IN TROUBLE.

AS THEY CONTINUE TO HAVE

THEIR OWN SHOW, COMING UP,

WE'VE HEARD THE STORY OF

JOHN RAMSEY, BUT THAT WASN'T

THE ONLY DEATH IN THE RAMSEY

FAMILY.

TAKE A LOOK.

IT JUST DIDN'T MAKE

SENSE.

CAR ACCIDENT IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE DAY, JUST A FREAK

ACCIDENT.

SHE AND HER BOYFRIEND WERE

BOTH KILLED.

I REALLY HIT ROCK BOTTOM.

JOHN RAMSEY TELLS US HOW

HE DEALT WITH THE LOSS OF

TWO CHILDREN, UP NEXT.

*

Pat: ONE OF THE MOST

TRAGIC FAMILIES IN AMERICA,

PARENTS TO THE SWEET LITTLE

GIRL, JONBENET, WHO WAS

BRUTALLY RAISED AN RAPED

AND KILLED, AND YET THEY

WERE BLAMED FOR HURTING

THEIR OWN CHILD.

AND ON DECEMBER THE 25th,

THE BODY OF JONBENET RAMSEY

WAS FOUND IN THE BASEMENT OF

HER HOME.

SHE HAD A NYLON CORD WRAPPED

AROUND HER NECK, DUCT TAPE

COVERING HER SWEET LITTLE

MOUTH.

AND SHE HAD A FRACTURED

SKULL.

HER PARENTS, JOHN AND PATSY

RAMSEY, WERE THE MAIN

SUSPECTS IN THE

INVESTIGATION.

IT WAS A BOTCHED

INVESTIGATION BY PEOPLE WHO

WERE, FRANKLY, INCOMPETENT.

AND THE RAMSEYS WERE

EVENTUALLY CLEARED OF ANY

WRONG-DOING, BUT THEY HAD TO

BEAR NOT ONLY THE GRIEF OF

LOSING THEIR CHILD TO THE

APROBIUM THAT CAME ABOUT

BECAUSE OF THIS

INVESTIGATION.

JOHN RAMSEY TOLD SCOTT ROSS

HE NEEDED MORE THAN A LETTER

FROM THE D.A. TO END HIS

SUFFERING.

Reporter: JONBENET

RAMSEY'S SLAYING REMAINS ONE

OF THE MOST HIGH-PROFILE

UNSOLVED MURDER CASES.

TODAY SHE WOULD BE 22.

HER FATHER, JOHN RAMSEY,

STILL WAITS FOR HER KILLER

TO BE FOUND.

IT IS A HORRIFIC CRIME.

THE MURDER OF A CHILD IS

BEYOND ANY PERSON'S NORMAL

COMPREHENSION.

Reporter: IN THE 15

YEARS SINCE JONBENET'S

BRUTAL MURDER, ONE MEDIA

EXPERT NOTED THAT THE STILL

UNSOLVED SLAYING OF THE

BEAUTY QUEEN INITIATED ONE

OF THE FOULEST, YELLOWEST

CHAPTERS IN AMERICAN

JOURNALISM.

YOU WILL PILLERATED BY

THE PRESS AND THE

AUTHORITIES AND BY THE

WORLD.

THE POLICE ALWAYS LOOK AT

THE PARENTS FIRST, AND WE

ACCEPTED THAT AND JUST

ASSUMED THEY WOULD COMPLETE

THAT CYCLE AND MOVE ON,

WHICH, OF COURSE, THEY DID

NOT.

BUT, YOU KNOW, IT DIDN'T

MATTER REALLY.

WHAT MATTERED WAS WE LOST

OUR CHILD.

THAT WAS THE CRUSHING BLOW.

THE REST OF IT WAS, LIKE,

WHATEVER.

WE JUST ACCEPTED IT.

IT WASN'T -- WE WOULD HAVE

GIVEN EVERYTHING TO HAVE OUR

CHILD BACK.

Reporter: JONBENET'S

MURDER WASN'T THE ONLY

TRAGEDY HER FATHER, JOHN

RAMSEY, SUFFERED.

OVER A 14-YEAR SPAN HE LOST

HIS OLDEST DAUGHTER, BETH,

WHO WAS KILLED IN A CAR

ACCIDENT.

LITTLE JONBENET, AND THEN

HIS WIFE, PATSY, JUST 49 TO

CANCER.

PATSY NEVER LIVED TO SEE

THEIR FAMILY PUBLICLY

EXONERATED AS SUSPECTS IN

JONBENET'S SLAYING.

Reporter: HOW LONG DID

YOU HAVE TO LIVE WITH THIS,

AS THE TERM WAS COINED AT

THE TIME, THE UMBRELLA OF

SUSPICION.

WE WERE OFFICIALLY

CLEARED AND APOLOGIZED TO BY

THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY IN

2008, SO THAT WAS 12 YEARS.

Reporter: MARY LACEY,

BOULDER'S NEW DISTRICT

ATTORNEY, SAID THEY CLEARED

THE FAMILY OF JONBENET'S

MURDER.

"THIS D.N.A.PROFILE BELONGS

TO THE PER TRADER.

THE CONDITIONS IN THIS CASE

CREATED AN ONGOING HELL FOR

JONBENET RAMSEY AND HIS

FAMILY, WE DICTATE THAT THE

RAMSEYS BE TREATED ONLY AS

VICTIMS OF THIS SERIOUS

CRIME."

I DON'T VIEW IT AS A

LET'S GO OUT AND CELEBRATE.

IT WAS JUST ANOTHER STEP IN

THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

BUT THE INTERESTING THING

WAS, OF COURSE, THAT THE

MEDIA WAS OUT TO LYNCH US.

THE INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE WERE

WONDERFUL TO US.

IT REALLY OPENED MY EYES TO

HOW COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE CAN

BE, AND HOW IMPORTANT THAT

IS.

WE CERTAINLY SAW EVIDENCE

AND EXAMPLES OF HOW GOD

TAKES THINGS AND TURNS THEM

FOR GOOD.

AND, YOU KNOW, I GOT A

LETTER FROM A LADY SEVERAL

YEARS AGO THAT SAID I WAS

CONTEMPLATING SUICIDE, AND I

DECIDED IF YOU COULD HANDLE

YOUR PROBLEMS, I COULD

CERTAINLY HANDLE MINE.

Reporter: IN TIME,

JOHN'S GRIEF GAVE WAY TO

HAPPY MEMORIES OF HIS

DAUGHTER.

I STILL, OF COURSE, THINK

OF JONBENET AS A SWEET

LITTLE 6-YEAR-OLD.

Reporter: JOHN, A "NEW

YORK TIMES" BEST-SELLING

AUTHOR HAS WRITTEN ANOTHER

BOOK, "THE OTHER SIDE OF

SUFFERING," TO ENCOURAGE

PEOPLE BROKEN BY TRAGEDY OR

INJUSTICE.

HE SAYS THE DEATH OF HIS

OLDEST DAUGHTER, BETH, IN

1992, WAS THE BEGINNING OF

HIS FAITH JOURNEY.

THE FIRST WORDS OUT OF MY

MOUTH AS I HUNG UP THE PHONE

THAT MORNING, THERE IS NO

GOD.

I SCREAMED, THERE IS NO

GOD.

BECAUSE IT JUST DIDN'T MAKE

SENSE.

A CAR ACCIDENT IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE DAY.

A FREAK ACCIDENT.

SHE AND HER BOYFRIEND WERE

BOTH KILLED.

I REALLY HIT ROCK BOTTOM.

AND PRIOR TO THAT TIME, I

WAS A CULTURAL TIME.

I WAS A CHRISTIAN BECAUSE I

WAS BORN IN A CHRISTIAN

HOME.

AND THAT'S WHAT YOU DID ON

SUNDAYS.

I DIDN'T REALLY GET IT.

DIDN'T REALLY UNDERSTAND

IT.

SOME GOOD FRIENDS CAME

ALONGSIDE ME, ONE IN

PARTICULAR TOOK ME ASIDE AND

SAID, JOHN, I'VE BEEN

PRAYING FOR YOU.

I WANT TO SPEND TIME WITH

YOU.

TAUGHT ME HOW TO STUDY THE

BIBLE.

SO MY FAITH HAD REALLY

GROWN.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

UNDERSTAND NOW ABOUT GOD AND

JESUS?

THAT YOU DIDN'T KNOW BACK

THEN?

JESUS IS REAL.

HE IS WHO HE SAID HE IS.

I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT.

I CAN COMMUNICATE WITH HIM

IN PRAYER.

HE IS REAL.

SO WHEN JONBENET WAS

MURDERED, I HAD FAITH.

IT WASN'T JUST A LOGICAL

EXERCISE.

IT HAD GONE FROM MY HEAD TO

MY HEART.

SO I KNEW JONBENET WAS

OKAY.

I DIDN'T QUESTION GOD AS TO

WHY THIS HAPPENED.

Reporter: JOHN'S

SUFFERING CONTINUED.

PATSY HAD BEEN HEALED OF

STAGE FOUR OVARIAN CANCER IN

1994, BUT EIGHT YEARS LATER

IT WAS BACK.

2002 PATSY'S CANCER

RETURNS.

SHE HAD, I THINK, THREE

REMISSIONS OVER THE NEXT

THREE OR FOUR YEARS.

AND THEN THE POINT CAME

WHERE I WANTED GOD TO TAKE

HER HOME BECAUSE SHE WAS

SUFFERING SO MUCH.

IT WAS, LIKE, GOD, PLEASE

TAKE HER HOME.

IT IS TIME TO END THIS

SUFFERING AND STRUGGLE.

DEATH BECAME BOTH A SORROW

AND A RELIEF FOR ME, IN A

STRANGE WAY.

WE KNEW WE'D MISS HER

TERRIBLY, BUT I WAS GRATEFUL

THAT SHE WAS NOT SUFFERING

ANYMORE.

Reporter: AS A WIDOWER

AND SINGLE FATHER, JOHN WAS

CHALLENGED BY A FRIEND TO

LIVE AS IF HIS BEST DAYS

WERE AHEAD.

HE SPENT TIME IN INDIA

SERVING LOCAL PASTORS.

YOU JOINED UP WITH WIWIM,

YOUTH WITH A MISSION, TO

BECOME A MISSIONARY TO

INDIA.

IT WAS A WONDERFUL

EXPERIENCE.

IT REALLY MOVED MY SPIRITUAL

JOURNEY ALONG DOUBLE TIME.

Reporter: HE ALSO FELL

IN LOVE WITH AND MARRIED

JAN.

JAN, MY WIFE, GREW UP IN

ETHIOPIA AS A MISSIONARY

KID.

A REAL SOLID BELIEVER, SO

WE'VE HAD A WONDERFUL

MARRIAGE.

AND IT'S BEEN A BLESSING FOR

ME.

AND HELPED ME DO ALL OF THIS

TO VIEW THAT THE BEST DAYS

OF MY LIFE ARE STILL AHEAD

OF ME.

Reporter: THROUGH ALL

OF THIS, JOHN, YOU COULD

HAVE COME OUT ON THE OTHER

SIDE OF IT, AN ANGRY,

BITTER, RESENTFUL MAN, AND

YOU DIDN'T.

NO.

I THINK THERE WERE SEVERAL

FACTORS.

ONE IS WE WERE REALLY

BLESSED BY THE COMPASSION OF

OUR FELLOW MAN.

PEOPLE JUST REACHED OUT TO

US AND CARRIED OUR SPIRITS

AND ENCOURAGED US AND

APOLOGIZED FOR WHAT WAS

BEING SAID AND DONE TO US.

IT REALLY WAS AN UPLIFTING

EXPERIENCE FOR US.

Reporter: THROUGH ALL

OF THIS PROCESS, SUFFERING

IS PART OF THE PACKAGE THAT

JESUS SAYS YOU INHERIT WHEN

YOU EMBRACE HIM.

IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.

I'VE LEARNED THAT PRETTY

MUCH EVERYBODY SUFFERS AT

SOME POINT IN THEIR LIFE.

LIFE IS NOT NECESSARILY

EASY, AND PEOPLE STRUGGLE,

PARTICULARLY NOWADAYS, AND

THAT WAS KIND OF AN

EYE-OPENER FOR ME.

AND THAT IT HAS A BEGINNING

ANN END. ANN-- AND AN END.

AND THAT IS WHAT THE BOOK IS

ABOUT, THAT THERE IS AN END

TO SUFFERING.

IT IS NOT FOREVER.

Pat: THAT IS SO

INSPIRING.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID THOSE

WHO LIVE GODLY IN CHRIST

SHALL SUFFER PERSECUTION.

THEY SHALL GO THROUGH

PRESSURES.

AND THE WORD IN GREEK IS

PHILIPSUS, WHICH MEANS

PRESSURE.

TEMPTATIONS, TRIAL,

SUFFERING.

DON'T THINK WHEN YOU COME TO

JESUS IT IS ALL A BED OF

ROSES.

IT IS LIKE THAT SONG, "I

NEVER PROMISED YOU A ROWS

GARDEN."

AND HE DIDN'T PROMISE US

THAT.

HE PROMISED US A CROSS.

BUT THE RAMSEYS HAVE HAD

SOMETHING MORE THAN THAT.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE A CURSE IS

DESCENDED UPON HIM.

I'M SO GLAD HE HAS COME OUT

OF THAT.

WHAT A WONDERFUL MAN.

LOVELY WIFE, STRICKEN BY

CANCER.

SHE WAS A BRIGHT, VIVACIOUS,

YOUNG LADY.

YOU HEAR THEIR STORY AND

IT IS TRAGIC.

JOHN RAMSEY SHARES MORE OF

HIS STORY IN HIS NEW BOOK.

AND THE BOOK IS CALLED "THE

OTHER SIDE OF SUFFERING,"

AND YOU CAN GET A COPY IN

STORES NATIONWIDE.

UP NEXT, WE'RE GOING TO

SWITCH GEARS.

COOKING.

COOKING, RIGHT?

IT'S EASY.

A COLLEGE KID CAN DO IT.

WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW

TO HAVE FIVE-STAR COOKING IN

YOUR DORM ROOM.

UP NEXT.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

CHRISTIAN PRISON INMATES IN

CALIFORNIA ARE STUDYING TO

BECOME EVANGELISTS AND

CHURCH PLANNERS AFTER THEY

ARE RELEASED.

ABOUT 900 INMATES IN 18

PRISONS ARE PARTICIPATING IN

THE 3.5 YEAR PROGRAM.

IT IS THE RESULT OF A

PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN WORLD

IMPACT AND PRISON

FELLOWSHIP.

10 MEN GRADUATED FROM THE

PROGRAM LAST YEAR, AND 14

MORE EXPECTED TO GRADUATE

THIS YEAR.

PRISONS IN MICHIGAN,

FLORIDA, AND COLORADO HAVE

ALSO STARTED CLASSES.

NEW COLLEGE STUDENTS

NORMALLY DECIDE WITHIN WEEKS

WHERE THEY WILL SPEND THEIR

TIME IN COLLEGE.

IT CREATES A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY AND A CHALLENGE

FOR COLLEGE MINISTRIES.

SO THEY'RE BUSY WELCOMING

STUDENTS AND PRAYING THEY

MAKE THEIR FAITH LIFE A BIG

PART OF THEIR COLLEGE

EXPERIENCE.

UNIVERSITY CHRISTIAN

FELLOWSHIP AND CAMPUS

CRUSADE ANTICIPATE A RECORD

YEAR FOR MINISTRY.

LAST YEAR THEY SAW MORE THAN

3300 STUDENTS COME TO FAITH

IN CHRIST.

THAT'S AN INCREASE OF 700

FROM THE YEAR BEFORE.

UNIVERSITY STAFFERS AND

VOLUNTEERS OVERSEE ALMOST

900 CHAPTERS NATIONWIDE.

CREW HAS MORE THAN 1700.

MORE THAN 73,000 STUDENTS

ARE INVOLVED IN THAT

MINISTRY.

Kristi: REMEMBER

COLLEGE?

REMEMBER THAT TIME WHEN, I

DON'T KNOW, FOR MOST COLLEGE

STUDENTS THE CLOSEST THINGS

THEY GET TO A DECENT MEAL IS

FAST FOOD.

REMEMBER THAT?

THAT'S WHAT IS GOING ON

NOW.

WE'RE TALKING A LOT OF

MACARONI AND CHEESE.

WELL, THE FAGGE FACT IS

MANY STUDENTS ARE AWAY FROM

MOM AND DAD FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN THEIR LIVES, AND THE

BOTTOM LINE IS THEY HAVE NO

CLUE HOW TO COOK.

BUT AS OUR NEXT GUEST WILL

SHOW US, IT DOESN'T HAVE TO

BE THAT WAY.

TAKE A LOOK.

NISA BURNS IS CALLED THE

CHEF FOR A NEW GENERATION,

WITH HER CONCEPT OF KITCHEN

ABILITY.

SHE DEFINES THIS AS BECOMING

BEST FRIENDS WITH YOUR

KITCHEN IN ORDER TO FEED

YOURSELF FOR LIFE.

THAT'S ONE REASON HER

RECIPES ARE GEARED TOWARDS

COLLEGE STUDENTS ON THEIR

OWN FOR THE FIRST TIME.

NISSA SAYS COOKING TO BE

EASY, NATURAL, AND FUN.

SHE'LL SHOW YOU DELICIOUS

AND HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES TO

DRIVDRIVE-THROUGH OR QUICK,

PROCESSED FOODS.

Kristi: NISSA IS THE

AUTHOR OF THE SOON TO BE

RELEASED COOKBOOK "KITCHEN

ABILITY."

IT IS SO GOOD TO SEE YOU.

KITCHEN ABILITY -- I'M GLAD

I DON'T HAVE TO SAY IT MORE

THAN ONE TIME.

IT IS A FANTASTIC WORD.

KITCHEN ABILITY -- IT'S

ABOUT BECOMING BEST FRIENDS

WITH YOUR KITCHEN.

WHETHER YOU'RE IN A DORM

ROOM OR A SMALL APARTMENT --

I ALWAYS SAY NEVER CALL

YOURSELF A BAD COOK.

BECAUSE NO MATTER IF YOU

HAVE A MICROWAVE, A TOASTER

OVEN OR A RICE COOKER, YOU

CAN MAKE THESE RECIPES WE'RE

GOING TO MAKE TODAY.

COME ON, GIRL, LET'S ROCK

IT.

YOU THINK ABOUT COLLEGE AND

BEING AWAY FROM MOM AND DAD

BECAUSE MOM ALWAYS COOKS FOR

YOU, AND YOU'RE IN A COLLEGE

DORM --

IF YOU JUST HAVE THE

BASICS.

A RICE COOKER, A BLENDER, A

TOASTER OVEN.

YOU CAN DO ANYTHING.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE THINGS

WE CAN DO.

NISSA, GIRL, SHOW ME.

ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS

WE'RE GOING TO MAKE IS WHAT

MY MOM USED TO MAKE FOR US

AS WE WERE RUNNING OUT THE

DOOR.

THIS IS A BANANA CINNAMON

WAFFLE.

AND CINNAMON, THAT'S

DELICIOUS.

AND THEN YOU'RE GOING TO

PUT YOUR PEANUT BUTTER ON,

ABOUT A TABLESPOON.

LOVING IT.

YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH

PEANUT BUTTER.

THAT'S ONE OF THE FOUR BASIC

FOOD GROUPS: VEGETABLES,

MEAT, BREAD, AND PEANUT

BUTTER.

I LOVE IT.

YOU'RE GOING TO SLICE YOUR

BANANA, ABOUT THREE OR FOUR,

AND PUT IT ON TOP LIKE

THIS.

AND YOU WRAP IT INTO A PAPER

TOWEL OR A ZIPLOC BAG AND

YOU'RE OUT THE DOOR AND

READY TO GO TO CLASS.

PERFECT COLLEGE MEAL.

AND I'M IMPRESSED WITH HOW

QUICKLY YOU DID THAT.

EVERYTHING HERE IS UNDER

15 MINUTES.

AND YOU DID IT.

I HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT

THAT.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THOSE

WRAPS.

YOU CAN MAKE THIS IN YOUR

COLLEGE DORM?

YES.

IT IS KIND OF MY TAKE ON THE

TACO.

THE HEALTHY VERSION OF THE

TYPICAL TACO.

BASICALLY ALL YOU NEED IS A

MINI FRIDGE.

IF YOU WANT TO MAKE IT THE

NIGHT BEFORE AND PUT IT IN A

PORTABLE CONTAINER FOR

CLASS, MAKE SURE YOU PUT

LIME JUICE ON YOUR AVOCADOS,

BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T,

THEY'LL BROWN.

ICEBERG LETTUCE, FRESH

TOMATOES, AVOCADOS, AND A

LITTLE BIT OF CILANTRO.

WHEN YOU GO TO COLLEGE,

EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT THE

FRESHMAN 15, YOU GET CHUNK

CHUNK -- I KNOW I DID.

SO THAT'S HEALTHY.

WE'RE GOING TO FAST FORWARD

BECAUSE IT IS LIVE

TELEVISION.

TALK ABOUT THIS.

THIS IS MY TAKE ON TOMATO

SOUP.

I FELT -- MY AUNT ABBEY

HELPED ME WITH THIS DISH.

CAME OVER AND SAID HEY,

LET'S MAKE SOMETHING REALLY

QUICK AND EASY AND FUN.

YOU TAKE A CAN OF ITALIAN

STEWED TOMATOES, MAKE SURE

YOU USE ALL OF THE JUICE.

YOU CAN CRUSH THEM IF YOU

LIKE IT CREAMIER.

AND ADD A LITTLE BIT OF

MILK.

YOU CAN DO THIS IN YOUR DORM

ROOM.

THROW THAT IN THE MICROWAVE,

AND 30 SECONDS, AND YOU'VE

GOT SMOOTH SOUP.

LOOK AT YOU.

YOU'VE GOT A LITTLE BIT OF

GARNISH -- I DON'T KNOW WHAT

THAT IS.

PARSLEY.

AND YOU CAN TOP IT WITH

BASIL IF YOU WANT TO GET

SASSY.

WE LIKE SASSY.

THIS IS A RICE COOKER, BUT

THERE IS PASTA IN THERE.

YOU CAN COOK PASTA IN A

RICE COOKER.

THIS IS MY FAVORITE

MACHINE.

YOU CAN STEAM VEGETABLES IN

IT AND MAKE PASTA IN IT.

COLLEGE STUDENTS SHOULD HAVE

THESE.

THAT'S A REALLY GOOD

COMMERCIAL.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAY,

FOR $19.95 -- I'M SORRY.

THEY'RE LIKE HURRY UP.

YOU ADD YOUR FETA CHEESE,

TOMATOES, A LITTLE BIT OF

OLIVE OIL.

AND AS YOU DO THIS, I'M

GOING TO GO TO THE NEXT

THING.

OLIVES.

OKAY.

AND YOU SERVE --

YOU CAN SERVE THIS HOT OR

COLD.

SO IF YOU WANT IT FOR A

PASTA SALAD COLD, YOU CAN

HAVE IT COLD.

SO THOSE ARE SOME MEALS.

BUT WHAT ABOUT SNACKS?

WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE YOU

SNACK ALL OF THE TIME.

THIS IS MY SUBSTITUTE FOR

POTATO CHIPS.

PUT FET TO CHEES FETA

CHEESE INSIDE SOME POTATOES,

AND PUT THEM IN WHILE YOU'RE

STUDYING.

AND, OF COURSE, THESE.

OTHER SNACKS YOU CAN DO.

I MAKE MY OWN HOMEMADE

TRAIL MIX.

IT IS CHEAPER.

BUYING IT IN BULK AND DOING

IT YOURSELF IS HAVING U IT

THROUGHOUT THE WEEK IS SO

MUCH CHEAPER.

YOU WENT FROM COLLEGE TO

BE A NURSE, AND NOW YOU'RE

JUST ABOUT TO GRADUATE FROM

CULINARY SCHOOL?

A.I., VIRGINIA BEACH.

I'M SO PROUD OF YOU.

NEXT WEEK.

GOOD JOB.

ALL RIGHT, NISSA, I WANT TO

SAY THANK YOU SO MUCH.

AGAIN, YOU'VE GOT A BOOK.

IT IS JUST ABOUT TO COME

OUT, IT IS CALLED "KITCHEN

ABILITY, THE COLLEGE

STUDENT'S GUIDE TO EASY,

HEALTHY, AND DELICIOUS

FOOD," AND IT IS AVAILABLE

TO PREORDER.

THIS IS GREAT.

IF NOT JUST FOR YOU, YOUR

DAUGHTERS, YOUR SONS,

NIECES, NEPHEWS, WHOEVER IS

IN COLLEGE.

THIS IS GREAT FOR THEM.

AND IT WILL BE IN STORES

NEXT MONTH.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

APPRECIATE IT.

I WISH YOU WERE IN MY

DORM WHEN I WAS THERE.

Pat: WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM THE PSALMS,

"THE LORD HAS HEARD MY

SUPPLICATION, THE LORD WILL

RECEIVE MY PRAYER."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT FOR TODAY'S SHOW.

TOMORROW WE'VE GOT THE

GRANDSON OF ONE OF THE

FOUNDERS OF THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.
