Gordon: A GANG MEMBER,

IN AND OUT OF JAIL OVER 20

TIMES.

OCCASIONALLY I FELT

GUILTY.

I FEEL LIKE, MAN, I'M

HURTING MY FAMILY.

THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING.

I REMEMBER THE GUN TO MY

HEAD.

I CALLED OUT TO GOD, I SAID,

YOU KNOW, GOD, FORGIVE ME

FOR WHAT I'M DOING.

Gordon: TODAY ON "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

OTHER.

AND EXPLORE TOPICS THAT

MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

YOUNG CHILDREN LOVE TO

IMAGINE WHAT THEY WILL BE

WHEN THEY GROW UP.

MANY DREAM OF BECOMING A

FIREFIGHTER, POLICE OFFICER,

EVEN AN ASTRONAUT.

HOWEVER, THE MAN YOU'RE

ABOUT TO MEET HAD VERY

DIFFERENT GOALS.

INTERPRET

Ted:

Terry: AS A CHILD,

JOHN'S LIFE AMBITION WAS TO

JOIN A GANG AND GO TO JAIL.

IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR THAT

TO BE REALITY.

AND NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES

JOHN WENT TO PRISON, JOHN

WOULD NOT RENOUNCE THE GANG

LIFE UNTIL A BULLET WAS PUT

IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD.

I KNEW AT THE AGE OF 13,

THAT I WANTED TO BE A GANG

MEMBER AND GO TO JAIL.

Reporter: BY THE TIME

HE WAS 30, PRISON WAS LIKE A

SECOND HOME, AND HARD DRUGS

WAS PART OF HIS EVERYDAY

LIFE.

IT ALL STARTED WHEN JOHN WAS

13 AND HIS FAMILY BROKE UP.

HE WAS THE YOUNGEST OF FIVE

KIDS, AND HIS PARENTS'

DIVORCE HIT HIM HARD.

WHEN I FOUND OUT ABOUT MY

PARENTS' DIVORCE, I FELT

KIND OF STRAIGHTED.

I FELT KIND OF LOST.

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS WERE

GONE, ALL OUT OF THE HOUSE.

I WAS BASICALLY GOING FROM

HOUSE TO HOUSE.

I FELT LIKE NOT KNOWING WHAT

WAS THE NEXT STEP FOR MY

LIFE AND WHERE I WAS GOING

TO GO.

Reporter: AS A LATCH

KEY KID, JOHN LONGED FOR A

PLACE TO BELONG.

HE FOUND HIS NEW FAMILY IN

THE STREET GANGS OF RIALTO,

CALIFORNIA.

I WAS DOING HORRIBLE IN

SCHOOL.

I REMEMBER CAUSING PROBLEMS

AND FIGHTS.

WHAT THE GANG BROUGHT TO ME

WAS SOME SORT OF

ACCEPTANCE.

BECAUSE OF MY ANGER ISSUES,

I FELT LIKE I FIT RIGHT IN.

Reporter: BY 14, JOHN

HAD DROPPED OUT OF HIGH

SCHOOL AND WAS COMPLETELY

ENGULFED IN THE GANG

LIFESTYLE.

HE WAS WILLING TO DO

WHATEVER IT TOOK TO FIT IN.

I FELT LIKE I HAD TO PUT

A FRONT ON ALL OF THE TIME

TO MAKE MYSELF KNOWN.

MY GOOD DAY WAS SOMEBODY

ELSE'S BAD DAY OUT THERE IN

THE STREET.

ANYWHERE FROM STEALING CARS,

GOT CAUGHT WITH A GUN,

HAVING CONCEALED WEAPONS.

AND I STARTED DOING CRYSTAL

AND HEROIN, AND THINGS LIKE

THAT BRING YOU RESPECT IN

THE GANG.

Reporter: BECAUSE OF

HIS DRUG ADDICTIONS AND

CRIME SPREES, JOHN BECAME

ESTRANGED FROM HIS REAL

FAMILY.

OCCASIONALLY I FELT

GUILTY.

I FELT LIKE, MAN, I'M

HURTING MY FAMILY.

WHEN YOU'RE FAMILY DOESN'T

WANT YOU AROUND BECAUSE OF

THE THINS YOU'R THINGS

YOU'RE DOING, OF COURSE

YOU'RE GOING TO HIDE THAT

PAIN AND DOING MORE DRUGS.

I REMEMBER ONE MY DAD

SAYING, IS IT GOING TO BE

YOUR FAMILY OR THEM.

I FELT LIKE IT WAS THEM.

Reporter: BY THE AGE OF

30, JOHN HAD BEEN IN AND OUT

OF THE COUNTY JAIL 20

TIMES.

HE ALSO SERVED FIVE TERMS IN

THE STATE PRISON, MAINLY FOR

GRAND THEFT AUTO AND PAROLE

VIOLATIONS.

NOW HE HAD THE RESPECT OF

HIS FELLOW GANG MEMBERS AND

PLENTY OF ENEMIES.

IN 1997, A RIVAL GANG MEMBER

SHOT JOHN AT POINT-BLANK

RANGE IN THE BACK OF THE

HEAD.

I REMEMBER SOMEBODY

JUMPING OUT OF THE BUSHES.

THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW, I

REMEMBER THE GUN TO MY

HEAD.

IF I WOULDN'T HAVE TURNED, I

BELIEVE THAT IT WOULD HAVE

BEEN TO MY TEMPLE.

BUT, INSTEAD, IT WAS EN

INLODGED IN THE BACK OF MY

SKULL.

I WASN'T TOO SURE WHAT WAS

GOING TO GO ON, BUT THERE

WAS BLOOD ALL OVER THE

PLACE.

I STARTED THINKING OF GOD.

I SAID, GOD, FORGIVE ME FOR

WHAT I'M DOING.

Reporter: JOHN WAS ABLE

TO LEAVE THE HOSPITAL TWO

DAYS LATER, WITH FRAGMENTS

OF BULLETS STILL LODGED IN

HIS SKULL.

HE QUICKLY RETURNED TO THE

STREETS.

IN 2002, HE RETURNED TO

PRISON IN CHINO.

AND HE STARTED TO THINK MORE

ABOUT HIS PRAYER.

AND HE LEARNED ABOUT SOME OF

HIS FRIENDS BACK HOME WHO

HAD BECOME CHRISTIANS.

I ACCEPTED THAT MY LIFE

WASN'T GOING TO CHANGE.

BUT, AT THE SAME TIME, IF

THERE WAS A GOD, AND IF HE

SAVED MY OLD FRIENDS, THEN

MAYBE THERE WAS IS

POSSIBILITY THAT THAT

MIRACLE COULD HAPPEN IN MY

LIFE.

FOR THE FIRST TIME, REALLY,

I STARTED PRAYING.

Reporter: JOHN WAS

RELEASED ALMOST 40 DAYS

LATER.

INSTEAD GOING TO HIS OLD

GANG, HE WENT TO SEE HIS

MOTHER.

REGARDLESS OF WHATEVER I

WENT THROUGH IN MY LIFE, MY

MOM WOULD ALWAYS ENCOURAGE

ME.

SHE WOULD TELL ME, YOU KNOW,

MAKE LITTLE COMMENTS LIKE,

ONE DAY GOD IS GOING TO

CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

Reporter: THIS TIME SHE

ENCOURAGED HIM TO CHECK IN

WITH HIS PAROLE OFFICER,

INSTEAD OF RETURNING TO HIS

OLD HABITS AND ADDICTIONS.

JOHN STARTED THINKING ABOUT

THE EFFECTS OF HIS LIFESTYLE

AND KNEW HE WOULD BE KILLED

IF HE RETURNED TO THE

STREETS.

THIS FEAR CAME OVER ME,

LIKE I HADN'T HAD BEFORE,

AND I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING

TO DIE.

I TOLD MY MOM, YOU KNOW

WHAT?

IF I GO BACK, I'M GOING TO

DIE.

Reporter: JOHN'S PAROLE

OFFICER GAVE HIM THE NUMBER

OF A CHRISTIAN MEN'S HALFWAY

HOUSE.

JOHN CHECKED IN THE NEXT

DAY.

DURING JOHN'S FIRST DAY IN

THE HOUSE, TWO MEN STARTED

TO TALK TO JOHN ABOUT GOD.

I REMEMBER THESE TWO MEN

COMING TO ME AND THEY ASKED

ME IF I KNEW JESUS CHRIST.

I TOLD THEM NO.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHO HE WAS.

WHEN I READ THE SCRIPTURE,

IT SAID MY SINS WOULD BE

WASHED AWAY.

WHEN I FOUND OUT JESUS COULD

FORGIVE ME OF MY SIN, THAT'S

ALL I NEEDED.

Reporter: AFTER THREE

MONTHS IN THE PROGRAM, JOHN

WAS STUDYING THE BIBLE AND

PRAYING REGULARLY.

I STARTED TO CHANGE MY

DESIRES.

MY DESIRES BECAME.

I CAN SAY THEY BECAME GODLY

DESIRES.

I WANTED A FAMILY.

I WANTED TO GET MARRIED.

THINGS I DIDN'T HAVE

BEFORE.

I WANTED TO WORK.

I NEVER HELD A JOB.

I NEVER EVEN WORKED.

THEY REALLY STARTED

MINISTERING TO ME ABOUT

THINGS I NEEDED TO TO BE A

MAN IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: ONE DAY

DURING A PRAYER TIME AT THE

MEN'S HOME, JOHN ASKED GOD

TO HELP HIM WITH HIS DRUG

ADDICTION.

I FEEL LIKE I CHALLENGED

HIM THAT DAY.

I SAID, GOD, IF YOU'RE REAL,

I WON'T DRINK NO MORE OR

SMOKE NO MORE.

I WON'T GO BACK IF YOU'RE

FOR REAL.

I REMEMBER HIM TELLING ME I

WASN'T GOING TO GO BACK NO

MORE, THAT THE CYCLE WAS

BROKEN.

Reporter: JOHN NEVER

RETURNED TO GANG LIFE OR HIS

ADDICTIONS.

TODAY HE IS MARRIED AND HAS

REUNITED WITH HIS FAMILY.

HE IS ALSO THE PASTOR OF A

CHURCH AND RUNS A STREET

MINISTRY.

I WOULD SAY THE BIGGEST

PART IS THAT HE CAN FORGIVE

YOU.

I CAN HONESTLY SAY WHAT GOD

HAS DONE FOR ME IS HE HAS

JUST NOT DELIVERED ME, BUT

HE HAS BEEN MY STRENGTH IN

THE TIME OF MY STORM.

I WOULD SAY YOU CAN CHANGE,

IT IS POSSIBLE.

GOD IS FOR REAL, AND I CAN

BE THE FIRST TO SAY THAT

MIRACLE CAN HAPPEN IN

SOMEBODY'S LIFE.

Gordon: GOD IS FOR

REAL.

AND YOU CAN DO THE SAME

THING THAT JOHN DID.

YOU CAN PRAY THE SAME

PRAYER.

JESUS, IF YOU'RE REAL, IF

THIS IS ALL TRUE, CAN YOU

DELIVER ME?

CAN YOU SET ME FREE?

CAN YOU FORGIVE ME?

SO OFTEN WHEN WE'RE OFF IN

THE WORLD LIKE JOHN WAS, WE

GET THE WRONG IDEA.

WE START THINKING, GOD IS

MAD AT US, OR GOD DOESN'T

WANT US ANYMORE.

OR HOW CAN A HOLY AND

RIGHTEOUS GOD HAVE ANYTHING

TO DO WITH ME?

GET IT STRAIGHT, JESUS WAS A

FRIEND OF SINNERS.

HE LIKED TO HANG OUT WITH

SINNERS.

HE LIKED TO BE WITH TAX

COLLECTORS, PROSTITUTES

PROSTITUTES.

HE WOULD GO OUT OF HIS WAY

TO BE WITH DEMON-POSSESSED

PEOPLE.

HE TRAVELLED ALL THE WAY

ACROSS THE SEA OF GALILEE

JUST TO FIND ONE, BECAUSE HE

WANTED TO SET HIM FREE.

THAT'S WHAT HE DOES.

HYPOTHETICALS HIS NATURE.

THAT'S HIS NATURE.

AND HE CAN'T DENY HIMSELF.

HE IS THE SAVIOR.

AND THAT MEANS OF YOU.

THAT HE IS ABLE TO FORGIVE

ANYTHING YOU'VE EVER DONE

WRONG, AND HE IS ABLE TO SET

YOU ON THE RIGHT PATH.

AND HE CAN TAKE AWAY THE

DESIRE FOR DRUGS, FOR

ALCOHOL, CIGARETTES, FOR

PORNOGRAPHY.

HE CAN DO IT ALL.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LET

HIM.

AND PRAY THE SAME PRAYER

THAT JOHN PRAYED.

JESUS, IF YOU'RE REAL, IF

THIS IS ALL REAL, IF THIS IS

FOR ME, IF YOU REALLY CAME,

IF YOU REALLY DIED FOR ME,

COULD YOU DO THIS, COULD YOU

SET ME FREE?

AND IF YOU PRAY THAT WITH

ALL OF YOUR HEART, HE'LL

COME.

HE'LL ANSWER THAT.

JUST AS HE DID FOR JOHN.

NOW, JOHN SAYS I DIDN'T HAVE

TO TAKE A 12-STEP PROGRAM.

I TOOK ONE STEP; I

SURRENDERED TO JESUS AND I

ASKED HIM TO DO WHAT I

COULDN'T DO.

NOW, IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING

ABOUT DRUG ADDICTION, AND

YOU HEARD WHAT JOHN WAS

TAKING, YOU KNOW THAT'S A

MIRACLE THAT HE WAS SET

FREE.

THAT'S A MIRACLE.

AND ON TOP OF THE MIRACLE

FROM DRUGS, HE TOOK AWAY

CIGARETTES.

IN YOU'RE A SMOKER, YOU KNOW

THAT'S A MIRACLE, TOO.

THAT SAME MIRACLE CAN HAPPEN

TO YOU IF YOU ASK HIM.

NOW, SO OFTEN WE START

THINKING FAITH IS SOMEHOW

BLIND.

NO, FAITH IS NOT BLIND.

FAITH HAS EVIDENCE.

FAITH HAS SUBSTANCE, AND

JOHN KNOWS HIS REDEEMER.

AND WHEN HE TALKS TO YOU AND

TELLS YOU HIS STORY, HE IS

TALKING FROM EXPERIENCE.

AND THE EXPERIENCE OF A

MIRACLE THAT SEEMS

MIND-BLOWING, THAT GOD COULD

TAKE SOMEONE WHO HAS SET

OUT -- MY LIFE GOAL IS TO BE

A GANG MEMBER, MY LIFE GOAL

IS TO BE IN PRISON, AND TURN

IT ALL AROUND AND GIVE HIM A

FAMILY, MAKE HIM A MINISTER,

HAVE HIM HAVE A CHURCH.

JUST BELIEVE THAT JESUS

WANTS TO DO IT FOR YOU.

AND COME TO HIM.

AND IF YOU PRAY IT, HE'LL

ANSWER.

SO IF THIS IS FOR YOU, IF

YOU WANT TO CHANGE, DON'T

CHANGE THE CHANNEL.

CAPTIAL MANAGEMENT YOUR LIFE

BY JUST PRAYING A VERY

SIMPLE PRAYER.

BOW YOUR HEAD WITH ME.

CLOSE YOUR EYES.

AND LET JESUS DO IT FOR

YOU.

LET'S PRAY TOGETHER.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

IT OUT LOUD.

DON'T BE ASHAMED.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU AND I

HEAR THAT YOU'RE A FRIEND OF

SINNERS.

AND, JESUS, RIGHT NOW I NEED

YOU TO BE MY FRIEND.

I NEED YOU TO COME INTO MY

LIFE.

I NEED YOU TO CHANGE MY

HEART AND CHANGE MY DESIRES

AND SET ME FREE.

SO, JESUS, HEAR MY PRAYER.

IF YOU'RE THERE, IF YOU'RE

REAL, COME IN, MAKE ME NEW

AGAIN.

FORGIVE ME OF THE THINGS

THAT I'VE DONE WRONG.

AND, JESUS, I WANT TO FOLLOW

YOU.

I WANT TO BE B WITH YOU, SO

HEAR MY PRAYER.

ANSWER IT TODAY, FOR I ASK

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A BAPTISM

IN YOUR LOVE.

I ASK THAT YOUR PRESENCE

WOULD SURROUND THEM AND BE

IN THEM AND FILL THEM TO

OVERFLOWING WITH THE

KNOWLEDGE OF YOU.

WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT

THEIR PRAYER HAS BEEN HEARD

AND HAS BEEN ANSWERED NOW.

AND WE ASK IT ALL IN THE

NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES,

JESUS.

JESUS, OUR SAVIOR, OUR

REDEEMER.

DO IT NOW, LORD, IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT IF

YOU'LL BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART

AND THEN CONFESS WITH YOUR

MOUTH, YOU SHALL BE SAVED.

WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS

MAKE A TOLL-FREE CALL AND DO

JUST THAT, CONFESS WITH YOUR

MOUTH.

I PRAYED WITH THAT GUY ON

TV.

I ASKED JESUS TO COME INTO

MY HEART.

WHEN YOU CALL, I WANT

SOMETHING FOR YOU.

I WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

IT IS A C.D. TEACHING.

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

HOW DO YOU LIVE THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE?

WHAT DO CHRISTIANS BELIEVE?

WHAT ARE THE FUNDAMENTALS OF

THE FAITH?

IT'S ALL FREE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS MAKE

THAT CALL.

1-888-777-1999.

THERE WILL BE SOMEBODY ON

THE OTHER END OF THE PHONE.

WE'RE NOT HERE TO JUDGE.

WE'RE NOT HERE TO CONDEMN.

WE'RE HERE TO TELL YOU GOD

LOVES YOU.

AND WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU,

BE THERE FOR YOU, SO MAKE

THE PHONE CALL.

THE PACKET IS FREE, THE

PHONE CALL IS FREE.

SO DO IT NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, ORPHANS

IN SIERRA LEONE FIND HOPE IN

THE MIDST OF POVERTY.

HOW THEY WENT FROM SLEEPING

ON THE FLOOR TO LIVING IN

THE NICEST HOME IN THE

VILLAGE, AFTER THI THIS.

Gordon: STILL AHEAD, A

YOUNG WIFE AND MOTHER

STRIVES TO STAY ON TOP.

I WOULD BE OVERWHELMED

WITH EXTREME NAUSEA, TO THE

POINT WHERE I WOULD BEGIN TO

VOMIT.

IT WAS MY SECRET.

IT WAS MY BIG SECRET.

Gordon: BUT SHE

COULDN'T KEEP HER SECRET FOR

LONG.

FIND OUT WHY AND THE NEXT

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

Terry: SIERRA LEONE HAS

ONE OF THE HIGHEST CHILD

MORTALITY RATES IN THE

WORLD, BUT THANKS TO

"ORPHANS' PROMISE," DOZENS

OF CHILDREN THERE NOW HAVE A

SAFE HOME AND A BRIGHT

FUTURE.

HERE IN LONGI, ON THE COAST

OF SIERRA LEONE, LIFE IS

VERY DIFFICULT.

PEOPLE STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE

ON VERY LITTLE.

IT'S ESPECIALLY HARD FOR

ABANDONED CHILDREN.

PASTOR JACOB AND HIS WIFE,

SATU, HAVE TAKEN ALMOST TWO

DOZEN NEEDY CHILDREN INTO

THEIR HOME.

ORPHANS AND NEGLECTED

CHILDREN ALL FIND A SAFE

PLACE HERE.

BUT THEY LIVE IN JUST THREE

SMALL ROOMS IN A RENTED

HOUSE.

AT NIGHT THE CHILDREN SLEEP

ON THIN GRASS MATS ON THE

FLOOR.

WHEN "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

HEARD ABOUT THEIR NEED, WE

KNEW WE HAD TO DO SOMETHING

FOR JACOB AND THE KIDS.

SO WE BUILT THEM A BRAND NEW

HOME, BIG ENOUGH FOR ALL OF

THEM.

THE KIDS COULDN'T WAIT TO

GET INSIDE TO LOOK AROUND.

FOR MANY OF THEM, THIS WOULD

BE THE VERY FIRST TIME THEY

SLEPT IN A BED.

THEY WERE ALL EXCITED, BUT

IT WAS ESPECIALLY

HEART-WARMING TO SEE THE

LITTLE GIRLS JUMPING ON

THEIR NEW BED.

THEY ALL GOT AN EXTRA

SURPRISE WHEN THEY WENT INTO

THE LIVING ROOM AND SAW

THEIR NEW TV.

NOW THEY'LL BE ABLE TO WATCH

CHRISTIAN PROGRAMS LIKE

CBN'S "SUPERBOOK," AND THEY

HAVE ROOM TO RUN AROUND AND

PLAY OUTSIDE.

TODAY THESE ONCE FORGOTTEN

CHILDREN LIVE IN THE NICEST

HOME IN THE VILLAGE.

PASTOR JACOB SAYS HE FEELS

BLESSED TO PROVIDE SUCH A

WONDERFUL HOME TO HIS

CHILDREN.

IT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD

BECAUSE I KNOW MY CHILDREN

ARE NOT SLEEPING ON THE

MAT.

NOW EACH OF THEM HAVE A

BED.

I FEEL SO HAPPY ABOUT THAT.

Terry: BECAUSE OF YOUR

GIFTS TO "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

AND CBN, THESE CHILDREN HAVE

A SAFE PLACE TO GROW UP.

THIS CENTER MEANS HOPE FOR

THEM.

THEY KNOW THAT THIS PLACE

WILL CHANGE THEIR LIVES.

AND TO ALL OF YOU WHO MADE

THIS POSSIBLE, THEY HAVE

SOMETHING THEY'D LIKE TO SAY

TO YOU.

KIDS.

THANK YOU!

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: BEAUTIFUL

CHILDREN.

AND I LOVE THE HEART OF

PASTOR JACOB BECAUSE HE IS

NOT JUST A VISIONARY FOR HIS

CITY, FOR HIS COUNTRY, BUT

HE SEES EVERY CHILD, ONE

CHILD AT A TIME.

WORKING WITH PEOPLE LIKE

THAT AROUND THE WORLD IS

WHAT ALLOWS US TO TOUCH THE

LIVES OF THOUSANDS AND

THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN,

GIVING THEM HOPE AND A

FUTURE, A PLACE TO BELONG.

A PLACE WHERE THEY'RE TRULY

LOVED AND THEY'RE BEING

EDUCATED.

AND, AS YOU CAN SEE, WHERE

WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO

BRING IN MATERIALS THAT

TEACH THEM ABOUT THE LOVE OF

JESUS CHRIST.

IT IS SO IMPORTANT FOR KIDS

TO KNOW THEY HAVE A FATHER

WHO WILL LOVE THEM ALWAYS,

NEVER LEAVE THEM, NEVER

FORSAKE THEM.

WHEN YOU GIVE TO "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," YOU'RE HELPING US

TAKE THAT MESSAGE TO

CHILDREN WHO HAVE BEEN LEFT

BEHIND OR ABANDONED,

CHILDREN WHO ARE OFTEN

WITHOUT HOPE OR A FUTURE.

WOULD YOU JOIN WITH US TODAY

IN MAKING THAT KIND OF A

DIFFERENCE.

YOU CAN GIVE YOUR GIFT BY

CALLING 1-888-777-1999, OR

YOU CAN GIVE BY LOGGING ON

TO CBN.COM.

JOIN WITH US TODAY.

WE'RE OUT TO CHANGE THE

WORLD, AND ESPECIALLY THIS

NEXT GENERATION OF CHILDREN

WHO CAN CHANGE THEIR WORLD.

GORDON TERROR.

Gordon?

Gordon: THIS IS "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE," AND THIS

IS THE SHOW WHERE YOU GET TO

BE INTERACTIVE.

LET'S GO TO THE CHATROOM.

JILL ASKS, "I HAVE A

HEADACHE WITH PAIN AND

STIFFNESS IN MY NECK.

PLEASE PRAY THAT I GET

RELIEF AND HEALED."

Gordon: DO YOU HAVE

ANOTHER ONE?

KIRON SAYS, "PLEASE PRAY

FOR MY FATHER, LLOYD, HE HAS

PARKINSON'S DISEASE AND

CANCER."

Gordon: WE'RE GOING TO

BE PRAYING FOR THOSE, BUT

FIRST WE HAVE THIS

INCREDIBLE STORY THAT WILL

ENCOURAGE YOUR FAITH.

IMAGINE HAVING A 30-POUND

TUMOR, AND THEN IMAGINE THAT

WITHIN A DAY IT

DISAPPEARED.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS

STORY.

IT'S UP NEXT.

Terry: DAWN YATES WAS

GIVEN DEVASTATING NEWS AFTER

HER DOCTOR DISCOVERED, GET

THIS, A 35-POUND CANCEROUS

TUMOR.

FOR MANY THIS WOULD BE A

DEATH SENTENCE, BUT DAWN HAD

A SECRET WEAPON.

I CAN HANDLE THIS BY

MYSELF, LIKE I'VE HANDLE

EVERYTHING ELSE IN MY LIFE.

IT'S JUST ME AND GOD.

I WAS HAVING BLEEDING, WHICH

I KNEW WAS NOT RIGHT.

I WAS HOPING IT WOULD HEAL

UP.

I FINALLY WENT TO THE DOCTOR

TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON.

HE DID A COLONOSCOPY AND

FOUND A TUMOR -- IN FACT, HE

CALLED IT A MASS.

WHEN I CAME OUT OF THE

ANESTHESIA, SHE SAID WE'RE

GOING TO TAKE YOU IN AND DO

A C.A.T. SCAN.

AND IT WAS A 35 TO 40-POUND

TUMOR, AND IT WAS

CANCEROUS.

THE REPORT SHOW CARCINOMA.

AND THERE WAS YOU AN

INFECTION IN THERE AS WELL.

I WENT THROUGH A 10-DAY

COURSE OF TREATMENT WITH

ANTIBIOTICS.

I TOLD GOD IN MY PRAYER,

WHEN I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

CANCER, GOD, I WANT TO BE

WITH YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING,

BUT I'M NOT DONE DOING YOUR

WORK YET.

THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE

WHO NEED WHAT YOU'VE GIVEN

ME.

THEN I STARTED GOING TO THE

CHURCH I GO TO NOW, AND THEY

REALLY BELIEVED IN HEALING.

I WENT TO THE ELDERS, AND

THEY PRAYED FOR ME.

I DIDN'T FEEL ANYTHING

PHYSICALLY, BUT JUST

SPIRITUAL, THAT THIS IS

WHERE I NEED TO BE, IN A

BODY OF BELIEVERS, I CAN'T

DO THIS ALONE.

THAT NEXT DAY I WENT BACK

FOR ANOTHER C.T. SCAN FOR A

FOLLOWUP, AND THEY FOUND

NOTHING.

THERE WAS NO INFECTION, AND

THERE WAS NO TUMOR.

IT IS JUST AMAZING WHAT GOD

HAS DONE.

AND SO THIS INCIDENT

ACTUALLY TAUGHT ME HOW TO

REACH OUT.

IT TAUGHT ME THAT THE CHURCH

IS THERE FOR ME.

THE CHURCH IS THERE TO PRAY

OVER ME.

AND WHERE TWO OR THREE ARE

GATHERED TOGETHER, THERE HE

IS IN THE MIDST OF US.

Terry: AND WE ARE HERE

TO PRAY FOR YOU TODAY.

PRAYER CHANGES THINGS.

GOD HAS ENCOURAGED US OVER

AND OVER AGAIN TO ASK, TO

KNOCK.

AND HE SAYS HE IS STANDING

AND WAITING.

WAITING FOR US TO OPEN THE

DOOR.

WAITING FOR US TO ALLOW HIM

INTO THE MIDST OF OUR

CIRCUMSTANCES AND OUR

NEEDS.

SO WE WANT TO PRAY RIGHT

NOW.

Gordon: YEAH, WE DO.

JUST KEEP IN MIND IT IS OUR

FATHER.

THE PRAYER IS SUPPOSED TO BE

IN COMMUNITY, WHERE WE SHARE

ONE ANOTHER'S BURDENS.

SO IF YOU'VE GOT A NEED, IF

YOU'VE GOT A BURDEN, JUST

COME AND WE'LL PRAY.

THE BIBLE SAYS IF TWO OR

MORE AGREE TOUCHING

ANYTHING, IT SHALL BE DONE.

AND START THINKING THAT YOU

DON'T HAVE TO BEG GOD FOR

THIS.

JESUS CALLED IT THE

CHILDREN'S BREAD.

THAT AS A LOVING, HEAVENLY

FATHER, HE WANTS TO PROVIDE

THE CHILDREN'S BREAD.

HE WANTS TO DO IT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TALK HIM

INTO IT.

YOU JUST HAVE TO COME TO HIM

IN SIMPLE FAITH, BELIEVING.

AND THEN YOU GET THE

MIRACLE.

SO WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

THOSE IN THE CHATROOM WHO

HAVE PUT THEIR REQUESTS IN.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

WHAT I ASK YOU TO DO, IS IN

AN ACT OF FAITH, JUST LAY

YOUR HAND ON THAT AREA OF

THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

NOW, IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY

NEED, THAT'S WONDERFUL.

BUT JOIN WITH US AND LET'S

CREATE A GREAT CIRCLE OF

PRAYER.

WHERE TOGETHER WE COME TO

OUR FATHER AND ASK FOR THE

CHILDREN'S BREAD AND ASK FOR

IT TODAY.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU RIGHT

NOW.

AND WE JUST COME TOGETHER AS

ONE.

AND WE SAY, FOR THOSE WHO

NEED HEALING, FATHER, LET

THEM BE HEALED.

LET YOUR WILL BE DONE ON

EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.

AND IN HEAVEN, THERE ARE NO

SICK.

THERE ARE NO TEARS.

THERE IS JUST RIGHTEOUSNESS,

PEACE AND JOY.

AND SO WE JUST ASK FOR YOUR

RIGHTEOUSNESS AND YOUR PEACE

AND YOUR JOY TO FLOW THROUGH

THESE BODIES NOW.

AND WE PRONOUNCE OVER THEM,

BE HEALED NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

AND BE EVE EVERY BIT

WHOLE.

THERE IS A WOMAN, YOU'RE

LAYING YOUR HAND ON YOUR

ABDOMEN.

YOU'VE GOT DIVE GOT

DIVERTICULITIS, AND YOU'RE

SAYING, CAN I BE HEALED,

TOO?

AND THE ANSWER FOR YOU IS

YES.

SO BE HEALED NOW, AND LET

ALL OF THAT PAIN AND

DISCOMFORT LEAVE YOU NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE

RESTORED.

THERE IS SOMEONE WITH

TERRIBLE PROBLEMS IN YOUR

RIGHT HIP FROM SPURS, BONE

SPURS, GROWTHS, UNUSUAL

GROWTH IN IT'S HIP JOINT.

GOD IS HEALING YOU OF THAT

RIGHT NOW.

AND NOW JUST BEGIN TO DO

WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO BEFORE,

AND REALIZE THAT IS NOW

PAIN-FREE.

AND IT FEELS GOOD.

AND GOD HAS TOUCHED YOU AND

HEALED YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A PROBLEM AT THE

LOWER PART OF YOUR BACK.

NOT DOWN IN YOUR HIP REGION,

BUT IN THE BOTTOM AREA, AND

IT'S ALMOST LIKE YOU'RE

HAVING MUSCLE SPASMS.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOU RIGHT

NOW AND HEALING THAT.

YOU'RE JUST GOING TO FEEL

THAT TIGHTNESS, THAT

ACHINESS THAT IS CONSTANTLY

THERE, SLOWLY GO AWAY.

AND NO MORE OF THAT

TIGHTENING AND THAT INTENSE

PAIN IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: SOMEONE WITH A

TERRIBLE FUNGAL INFECTION IN

THE TOES OF YOUR LEFT FOOT,

AND GOD IS TAKING THAT AWAY

FOR YOU.

HE IS HEALING YOU AND

TOUCHING YOU NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

SOMEONE ELSE WITH PAIN IN

THE BALLS OF YOUR FEET, AND

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR YOU

TO WALK.

AND GOD IS ABLE TO RESTORE

CUSHION THERE.

HE IS ABLE TO RESTORE MUSCLE

THERE, SO YOU'RE NOT JUST

STEPPING ON BONE, BUT YOU'VE

GOT THE CUSHION THAT YOU

NEED TO WALK PROPERLY.

BE HEALED NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

LORD, WE JUST THANK YOU, FOR

YOU ARE THE HEALER.

YOU ARE THE REDEEMER, YOU'RE

THE FORGIVER, AND YOU'RE THE

HEALER.
