WORDS YOU MAY NOT EXPECT

TO HEAR FROM A C.E.O.

THERE SHOULD BE LOVE IN

THE WORKPLACE.

Gordon: ONE TOP BOSS

REVEALS A NEW BUSINESS

STRATEGY.

LOVE OTHERS AS HE LOVED

US.

Gordon: PLUS, GET AN

EARLY START ON THANKSGIVING

DINNER.

Gordon: WE'RE GOING TO

TRY TO MAKE THIS AS SIMPLE

AS POSSIBLE.

WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE A

FIVE-STAR MEAL THE EASY

WAY.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

♪♪♪

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE NATION IS FOCUSED ON THE

RACE FOR THE WHITE HOUSE

THIS ELECTION YEAR.

AND DEMOCRATS AND

REPUBLICANS ARE ALSO

FIGHTING FOR CONTROL OF THE

SENATE AND CONGRESS.

Terry: AND ONE OF THE

DEMOCRATS' KEY TARGETS IS

CONGRESSMAN ALLEN WEST OF

FLORIDA.

DAVID BRODY BRINGS US A LOOK

AT THIS TOUGH POLITICAL

BATTLE.

David: DEMOCRATS VIEW

HIM AS PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER

ONE.

ALLEN WEST SIMPLY RUBS THIS

THE WRONG WAY.

DEMOCRATS ARE FIGHTING

WEST'S INSULTS BY FUNNELING

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THROUGH

ITS CHALLENGER

PATRICK MURPHY.

THERE IS NAME CALLING AND

HATRED THAT HE PREACHES ON A

DAILY BASIS.

Reporter: WEST TELLS

CBN NEWS THERE IS A REASON

DEMOCRATS ARE OUT TO GET

HIM, AND IT STARTS WITH THE

FACT HE IS BLACK AND

CONSERVATIVE.

WHY DO THEY WANT TO TAKE

YOU DOWN, EXACTLY?

I'M NOT THE STORY THEY

WANT TO GET OUT THERE.

IF THIS TYPE OF STORY GETS

OUT, WHAT HAPPENS TO THIS

CONSISTENT VOTING ELECTORAL

THEY HAVE IN THE BLACK

COMMUNITY.

Reporter: IT STRETCHES

ALONG FLORIDA'S COAST TO

FORT PIERCE.

THE PROCESS KNOWN AS

REDISTRICTING, MADE WESS'

DISTRICT LESS THAN

CONSERVATIVE.

THE COMPETITION HAS LED TO

NASTY ADVERTISING, LIKE A

WESS SPOT SHOWING A

10-YEAR-OLD MUGSHOT OF

PATRICK MURPHY AFTER HIS

ARREST FOR AN ALLEGED

DRUNKEN BRAWL.

MURPHY RAN AN AD WITH

CHILDREN RECITING WORDS THAT

ALLEN WESS HAS USED AGAINST

DEMOCRATS.

YOU'RE NOT A LADY.

YOU'RE THE MOST VIAL,

DESPICABLE MEMBER OF THE

COMMUNIST --

COMMUNIST --

COMMUNIST PARTY.

Reporter: WE ASKED WESS

ABOUT HIS OPPONENT.

PATRICK MURPHY, IS HE IN

OVER HIS HEAD?

JUST AN EMPTY SUIT.

I THINK HIS DAD WANTS TO BUY

HIM A POLITICAL SUIT SO HE

CAN HAVE INFLUENCE IN

WASHINGTON, D.C.

Reporter: MURPHY'S DAD

BACKS THE CONTROVERSIAL ADS

AGAINST WESS, LIKE THIS.

THEY ARE TO HAVE NO

COORDINATION WITH POLITICAL

COMPAIGNS.

WHEN YOUR DAD IS STARTING

A PACK JUST FOR YOU AND HE

IS THE MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR,

YOU CAN'T TELL ME THERE IS

NO COLLABORATION BETWEEN DAD

AND SON ON THIS.

Reporter: THE WESS

CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN FIGHTING

BACK, WITH WESS' WIFE TAKING

TO THE AIRWAVES.

I DO MY BEST TO IGNORE

POLITICAL MUD-SLINGING, BUT

RECENT ATTACKS ON MY HUSBAND

GO TOO FAR.

Reporter: THE BELIEF BY

MURPHY'S CAMPAIGN AND

NATIONAL DEMOCRATS, WESS'

RHETORIC WILL TURN OFF

MODERATE VOTERS IN THIS

DISTRICT.

HE IS VERY CONSERVATIVE,

AND IN SOME WAYS IT MAKES

HIM A VERY GOOD TARGET

BECAUSE HE IS SO OVER THE

TOP SO OFTEN IT GIVES THE

DEMOCRATS SOMETHING REALLY

TO PUSH ON, WHILE THAT PLAYS

WELL TO THE VERY HARD-CORE

CONSERVATIVES, THE TEA

PARTIERS, IT IS THE MODERATE

TO CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS,

WILL THEY GO FOR IT?

Reporter: BUT WESS IS

GOING TO KEEP SPEAKING THE

TRUTH.

IT COMES TO WHY THE OTHER

SIDE DOESN'T LIKE ME,

BECAUSE I SHOW THE POLITICAL

COURAGE THEY NEVER WILL BE

ABLE TO SHOW.

NOT JUST STANDING UP AGAINST

THEM, BUT STANDING FOR THAT

WHICH IS RIGHT FOR OUR

COUNTRY.

I'LL CONTINUE TO DO IT.

WHEN I GO TO ISAIAH 54: 17,

IT HELPS ME TO UNDERSTAND

WHEN IT SAYS "NO WEAPON

FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL

PROSPER, AND EVERY JUDGMENT

AGAINST YOU YOU SHALL

CONDEMN."

Reporter: DAVID BRODY,

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA.

Gordon: YOU CAN EXPECT

SOME OCTOBER SURPRISES

COMING OUR WAY IN RACES

ACROSS THE NATION.

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT

NATION.

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO VOTE.

IF YOU'RE NOT REGISTERED,

THERE IS STILL SOME TIME IN

SOME STATES.

A LOT OF THEM HAVE ALREADY

CLOSED THE REGISTRATION.

IF YOU'RE NOT REGISTERED,

CHECK YOUR STATE.

YOU CAN GO TO CBN.COM.

WE HAVE A VOTER REGISTRATION

MAP AND YOU CAN FIND WERE

WHAT ARE THE RULES IN YOUR

STATE.

YOU CAN GET THE LATEST

POLITICAL STORIES FROM DAVID

BRODY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CHECK

OUT "THE BRODY FILE" ON

CBN.COM.

THERE IS A NEW DEVELOPMENT

IN THE SHOOTING ATTACK IN

THE FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL

IN WASHINGTON LAST AUGUST.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY.

Lee: GORDON, THE MAN

ACCUSED OF SHOOTING A

SECURITY GUARD INSIDE THE

F. R.C. HEADQUARTERS

BUILDING FACES A TERRORISM

CHARGE.

FLOYD LEE IS THE FIRST TO BE

PROSECUTED UNDER THE

ANTITERRORIST ATTACK OF

2002.

HE IS ACCUSED OF OPENING

FIRE INSIDE THE LOBBY OF THE

F.R.C. BUILDING.

HE WAS CARRYING A BACKPACK

WITH AMMUNITION AND

CHICK-FIL-A SANDWICHES.

IT HAPPENED AFTER

CHICK-FIL-A'S PRESIDENT MADE

HEADLINES BY STANDING UP FOR

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

IN ATLANTA, A MEGA CHURCH IS

MOURNING THE LOSS OF ONE OF

ITS MEMBERS.

HE WAS SHOT WHILE DELIVERING

A SERMON.

COURT RECORDS INDICATE HE

WAS ONCE COMMITTED TO A

MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY IN

MARYLAND AFTER FACING

VARIOUS CRIMINAL CHARGES,

INCLUDING ATTEMPTED MURDER.

ABOUT 25 PEOPLE ?

INJURED.

A VIDEO SHOWS AN UNDERCOVER

OPERATIVE SUGGESTING A PLAN

TO CAST FAKE BALLOTS.

PATRICK MORAN HAS BEEN INTO IT.

THE VIDEO WAS RELEASED BY

PROJECT VIRATOS.

IT LOOKS INTO POSSIBLE VOTER

FRAUD IN VIRGINIA AND

FLORIDA.

PRO-LIFE ORGANIZATIONS PLAY

DIFFERENT ROLES TO END

ABORTION IN OUR NATION.

ONE GROUP IS COMMITTED TO

PRAYING.

PAUL STRAND REPORTS ON "40

DAYS FOR LIFE" OUTSIDE THE

SECOND LARGEST PLANNED

PARENTHOOD CLINIC IN THE

COUNTRY.

Reporter: THOSE WHO

GATHER AT "40 DAYS FOR LIFE"

SPEND MOST OF THE TIME?

PRAYING.

IT GIVES YOU A DEDICATED

WAY TO COME AND PRAY.

Reporter: EVERY ONCE IN

A WHILE YOU'LL HEAR A

HEARTBREAKING STORY.

HE SAID, MY GIRLFRIEND

HAD AN ABORTION BECAUSE SHE

SAID I COULDN'T MARRY HER

BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE A

JOB.

I TOLD HER I WOULD FIND

A WAY TO SUPPORT HER AND

HAVE A BABY.

SHE HAD AN ABORTION, AND THE

NEXT DAY I GOT A JOB.

I HAD THREE ABORTIONS.

Reporter: SOME HERE ARE

TRYING TO SAVE WOMEN FROM

MAKING THE SAME MISTAKE THEY

DID IN ABORTING THEIR

CHILDREN.

WOMEN ARE NATURAL TRAINED

MOTHERS, AND THERE IS ALWAYS

THAT HOLE WHEN YOU

TERMINATED A PREGNANCY.

YOU CAN LIVE FOR YEARS AND

TRY TO BURY IT, BUT IT IS

ALWAYS VERY DEEP-SEATED,

DEEP DOWN, WHERE YOU NEVER

GET OVER IT.

Reporter: BUT THEN YOU

HEAR SWEET STORIES OF

SUCCESS, LIKE WHAT HAPPENED

TO A WOMEN IN MONSIGNOR

SMITH'S OWN PARISH.

SHE WAS CONSIDERING AN

ABORTION.

SHE HEARD A PRAYER FOR AN

END TO ABORTION@ AND FOR

PROTECTION OF HUMAN LIFE AND

DECIDED NOT TO ABORT THE

CHILD.

Reporter: ONE SUCH

CHANGE OF HEART STICKS IN

ROSA'S MEMORY.

INVOLVING A WOMAN SHE WAS

SECRETLY PREGNANT AND TOLD

NO ONE SHE WAS GETTING AN

ABORTION.

SUNDAY NIGHT HER MOTHER

CALLED HER AND SAID,

ANGELICA, PLEASE DO NOT DO

ANYTHING TO THAT BABY.

SHE SAID I PRAYED TO THE

LORD, AND WHEN YOU GET TO

THAT CLINIC, YOU WILL SEE

PEOPLE PRAYING FOR YOU, AND

THOSE PEOPLE WERE SENT BY

GOD.

SHE SAID, WHEN I CAME AROUND

THE CORNER ON MONDAY, I SAW

YOU KNEELING DOWN AND

PRAYING.

Reporter: ANGELICA HAD

HER BABY.

SUCH STORIES KEEP MANY OF

THESE PRAYER WARRIORS COMING

BACK.

I FEEL LIKE IT GIVES THE

WOMEN HOPE, WHEN THEY SEE US

OUT HERE PRAYING, KNOWING

WE'RE HERE GIVING UP OUR

TIME FOR THEM.

I THINK IT MAKES A

DIFFERENCE.

IT IS ENORMOUS.

THERE IS NO JUDICIARY OR

POLICE FORCE THAT CAN STOP A

PRAYER.

Reporter: BOB GILLSON

FROM NEARBY BOULDER IS IF

BELIEVERS KNEW THE EFFECTS

THEIR PRAYERS COULD HAVE,

MANY MORE WOULD BE AT THE

"40 DAYS FOR PRAYER."

VIL JILS.

VIGILS.

THERE ARE PEOPLE'S LIVES

ARE LOSS, THERE ARE PEOPLE

WITH SUBSTANCE ABUSE,

SUICIDES -- THE LIST GOES ON

ON AND.

Reporter: THIS "40

DAYS" CAMPAIGN GOES THROUGH

THE SUNDAY JUST BEFORE

ELECTION DAY.

HAS IT HAD AN EFFECT?

DURING THESE VIGILS, SOME

6,000 BABIES HAVE BEEN

SAVED, ABOUT 70 ABORTION

WORKERS HAVE QUIT THEIR

JOBS, AND ABOUT A DOZEN

ABORTION FACILITIES HAVE

CLOSED DOWN.

PAUL STRAND, REPORTING FROM

THE "40 DAYS FOR LIFE" IN

DENVER.

Lee: ABORTION IS ONE OF

THE REASONS BILLY GRAHAM HAS

ASKED FOR PRAYER FOR

AMERICA.

HER WRITES ABOUT THE MORAL

DECLINE OF THE COUNTRY.

HE SAYS MILLIONS OF BABIES

HAVE BEEN ABORTED, AND OUR

NATION SEEMS LARGELY

UNCONCERNED.

SELF-CENTEREDNESS AND

INDULGENCE IS PART FOR

REASON.

"MY HEARTACHES FOR AMERICA

AND ITS DECEIVED PEOPLE.

THE WONDERFUL NEWS IS OUR

LORD GOD IS A GOD OF MERCY

AND HE RESPONSES TO

REPENTANCE.

IN JONA'S DAY, WHEN HE

FINALLY TRAVELLED AND

PROCLAIMED GOD'S WARNING,

PEOPLE REPENTED.

I BELIEVE THE SAME THING CAN

HAPPEN AGAIN THIS TIME IN

OUR NATION."

GORDON, THAT IS A VERY

POWERFUL PRAYER.

Gordon: THAT IS A VERY

POWERFUL PRAYER AND A GOOD

ANALOGY.

WE NEED TO KEEP IN MIND THAT

JONAH DIDN'T WANT TO KEEP

THE MESSAGE OF REPENTANCE.

HE ACTUALLY WANTED GOD TO

JUDGE THEM.

THAT'S WHY HE WENT AWAY.

HE KNEW IN GOD WOULDN'T

JUDGE THEM AND DESTROY THEM,

AND HE WANTED THEM

DESTROYED.

SO TODAY, ASK YOURSELF, ARE

YOU AWAITING JUDGMENT FOR

AMERICA?

OR ARE YOU PRAYING AND ARE

YOU ASKING GOD TO TURN, JUST

AS HE DID FOR THAT NATION,

WILL HE DO IT FOR OUR

NATION?

THE PROMISE THAT YOU ARE

PRAYING YOU FIND IN

CHRONICLES: "IF MY PEOPLE

WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME,

WILL SEEK MY NAME AND TURN

THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I

WILL HEAL THEIR LAND."

IT IS UP TO US, THE ONES WHO

CALL US CHRISTIANS, IT UP TO

TURN AND SEEK GOD'S FACE,

AND IF WE DO THAT, WE WILL

HEAR FROM HEAVEN.

LET'S AGREE TOGETHER IN

PRAYER.

OVER A QUARTER OF A MILLION

PEOPLE HAVE JOINED US, AND

WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US AS

WELL.

AND SAY, WHAT IS YOUR PRAYER

FOR AMERICA, AND WHAT IS

YOUR PRAYER FOR YOURSELF?

JOIN FOR US AND LET'S PRAY

THROUGH THE ELECTION AND

PAST THE ELECTION -- I THINK

IT WILL TAKE MORE THAN THE

ELECTIONS TO TURN US

AROUND.

WE NEED PRAYER, FOR GOD'S

PEOPLE, WHO ARE CALLED BY

HIS NAME, TO HUMBLE

THEMSELVES AND PRAY AND ASK

GOD TO HEAL OUR LAND.

"MY PRAYER FOR AMERICA IS

SPIRITUAL AWAKENING ACROSS

THE NATION."

HERE IS ANOTHER ONE, "THAT

THE ECONOMY WILL IMPROVE AND

JOBS WILL INCREASE."

Terry: AND HERE ONE IS

SAYING, "LET'S PRAY TO

RETURN TO THE VALUES OUR

COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED ON."

AND SOMEONE ELSE IS SAYING,

"I'M PRAYING FOR PEOPLE AND

A DROP IN THE CRIME RATE."

Gordon: JOIN WITH US.

LET'S PRAY FOR AMERICA AND

JOIN.

CALL THAT NUMBER AND SAY,

YES, I'LL BE AGREEING WITH

YOU IN PRAYER.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT AMERICA

TO YOU.

AND, LORD, WE JUST ASK FOR

AN AWAKENING IN OUR HEARTS,

THAT THERE WOULD ONCE AGAIN

BE A HUNGER FOR YOU.

THAT WE WOULD SEEK YOUR

FACE.

THAT WE WOULD SEEK THE GRACE

AND THE MERCY THAT CAN ONLY

COME IN YOUR PRESENCE.

SO, LORD, LIFT UP YOUR COUNT

COUNTENANCE UPON US, CAUSE

YOUR FACE TO SHINE OWN US,

AND GIVE US YOUR PEACE, THE

PEACE THAT SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING.

LORD, TURN AMERICA, TURN OUR

HEARTS, HEAL OUR LAND, FOR

WE ASK IT IN JESUS' NAME,

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Gordon: JOIN WITH US.

JOIN WITH OVER 250,000

PEOPLE THAT HAVE SAID, YES,

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR

AMERICA.

BE PART OF IT, AND BE PART

OF IT EVERY DAY, AND TO DO

IT EVERY DAY.

LET'S AGREE IN PRAYER.

AND AS WE AGREE IN PRAYER,

WE CAN SEE A CHANGE IN OUR

LAND.

NOW, WHEN YOU CALL AND JOIN

WITH US, WE'VE GOT SOMETHING

FOR YOU.

SO THAT YOU HAVE SOME KEYS

ON HOW TO PRAYER.

IT'S CALLED "STEPS TO

REVIVAL IN AMERICA."

IT'S A BOOKLET.

WE CAN EITHER MAIL IT TO

YOU, OR YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE

P.D.F. FILE.

EITHER WAY, CALL AND WE'LL

SEND IT RIGHT OUT TO YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, HE

WENT FROM MANAGER TO MINIMUM

WAGE.

FIND OUT WHAT ONE C.E.O.

LEARNED ABOUT HIS COMPANY

WHEN HE BECAME AN UNDERCOVER

BOSS.

AND LATER, WE'LL SHOW YOU A

SIMPLE WAY TO MAKE

THANKSGIVING DINNER.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

WE'LL BE BACK.ñ

Terry: WELL, YOU DON'T

HEAR MUCH ABOUT LOVE ON WALL

STREET, OR IN THE BOARD

ROOM, UNLESS IT'S ABOUT

MONEY.

THE HEAD OF ONE OF THE

COUNTRY'S LEADING THEME

PARKS HOPES TO CHANGE THAT.

TELEVISION VIEWERS FIRST SAW

JOEL MANBIAN ON "

"UNDERCOVER BOSS."

THIS BOSS WANTS TO TELL THE

WORLD THAT LOVE WORKS, EVEN

IN CORPORATE AMERICA.

SHE IS LIKE WHAT WE CALL

THE CULTURE KEEPER.

Reporter: JOEL'S JOB IS

TO SHOW FAMILIES A GOOD

TIME.

HIS MISSION AT HERSHIN

FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT IS

MAINTAIN A CULTURE THAT

LOVES JESUS.

WE ARE TO LOVE JESUS AS

HE LOVES US.

HE PLEADED WITH HIS

DISCIPLES ON HIS LAST NIGHT

TO DO THAT.

I DON'T SEE HOW WE CAN GO TO

WORK MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

AND LEAVE THAT ALONE.

Reporter: ON THE CBS

SHOW "UNDERCOVER BOSS,"

VIEWERS WITNESSED THAT CARE

WHEN JOEL DISGUISED HIMSELF

AS AN ENTRY LEVEL WORKER AT

SILVER CITY.

MORE THAN 18 MILLION VIEWERS

WATCHED JOEL MANBI THAT

WEEK.

IT WAS A SHOW THAT MADE HIM

A HOUSEHOLD NAME, AND ALSO A

SHOW THAT TRANSFORMED HIS

HEART.

WHAT "UNDERCOVER BOSS"

DID FOR ME IS ALLOW ME TO

TOUCH THE TRUE STORIES OF

THOSE WHO WERE SUFFERING

INSIDE OUR OWN COMPANY.

AND EVERYBODY HAS SOMETHING

GOING ON IN THEIR LIFE.

IT MAY NOT BE CANCER, IT MAY

NOT BE A DESTROYED HOME LIKE

IT WAS IN "UNDERCOVER

BOSS."

BUT EVERYBODY IS

STRUGGLING.

WHEN I TOUCHED THEIR LIVES,

I WANTED TO HELP.

Reporter: AFTER THE

PROGRAM, HERSHIN

ENTERTAINMENT RAMPED UP

"SHARE IT FORWARD" WHICH

HELPS FAMILIES IN NEED.

JOEL SAYS "SHARE IT FORWARD"

HAPPENED ABOUT 40 FAMILIES A

YEAR.

AND NOW THAT NUMBER HAS

GROWN TO MORE THAN 800.

WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN

HERE.

FRANKLY, WE DON'T NEED THE

GOVERNMENT TO HELP US TAKE

CARE OF OUR EMPLOYEES.

I THINK I WOULD RATHER DO IT

OURSELVES.

Reporter: THAT WASN'T

THE ONLY LESSON FROM GOING

UNDERCOVER.

JOEL RECEIVES E-MAILS FROM

AROUND THE WORLD FROM PEOPLE

WHO WATCHED THE SHOW AND

COMPLAINED ABOUT THEIR OWN

BOSSES.

I REALIZED WE HAD A

LEADERSHIP CRISIS IN OUR

COUNTRY.

THAT'S WHY I DECIDED TO

WRITE THIS BOOK, SO I COULD

SHARE THESE PRINCIPLES.

Reporter: THE RESULT:

"LOVE WORKS, SEVEN TIMELESS

PRINCIPLES FOR AFFECTIVE

LEADERS."

HE ENCOURAGES THOSE IN

CHARGE TO FOLLOW BIBLICAL

GUIDELINES OF BEING PATIENT,

KIND, TRUSTFUL, UNSELFISH,

TRUTHFUL, FORGIVING AND

DEDICATED.

LOOK AT PROFITS

DIFFERENTLY.

HERSHIN FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT

SEES THEM AS A PRODUCT OF

DOING THE RIGHT THING OVER

AND OVER AGAIN FOR COSTUMERS

AND EMPLOYEES.

WE'RE IN MARKETS LIKE SAN

FRANCISCO AND PHILADELPHIA.

THEY DON'T NECESSARILY

ALWAYS AGREE WITH THE

CHRISTIANITY PART, BUT THEY

AGREE WITH THE VALUES PART,

AND THEY LIKE KNOWING HOW

THEY'RE GOING TO BE

TREATED.

I'LL TELL YOU, IT HAS WORKED

EVERYWHERE, NOT JUST IN

BRANSON.

Reporter: JOEL SAYS YOU

CAN LEAD THIS WAY AND STILL

HIT THE NUMBERS.

HE DESCRIBES HIS COMPANY AS

MORE PROFITABLE THAN EVER.

DURING THE LAST SEVEN YEARS,

OPERATING PROFIT GREW MORE

THAN 50%.

AND THE COMPANY GENERATES A

14% ANNUAL RETURN TO

SHAREHOLDERS.

[LAUGHTER]

Reporter: CO-FOUNDERS

JACK AND PETE HERSHIN, WHOM

JOEL CALLS HIS HEROS, CALL

HIS STILL A WIN-WIN.

WE TALKED TO THE REGIONAL

VICE PRESIDENT, BRAD THOMAS

HERE ABOUT BUDGET, AND HE'LL

SAY JOEL IS VERY STRICT ON

BUDGET, BUT JOEL PAYS

ATTENTION TO THE PEOPLE OF

THIS COMPANY.

HE KNOWS MORE -- I'VE BEEN

HERE 52 YEARS, AND HE KNOWS

MORE ABOUT THE MEN AND WOMEN

IN THE COMPANY BY THEIR

FIRST NAME THAN I DO.

THE POTENTIAL OF THAT

BOOK IMPACTING OTHER

LEADERS, AND THEREFORE

CHANGING THE LIVES OF ENTIRE

ORGANIZATIONS, IS VERY, VERY

EXCITING.

THE BIGGEST THING I WANT

READERS TO TAKE AWAY IS THAT

LOVE DOES WORK AS A

LEADERSHIP PRINCIPLE IN THE

FOR-PROFIT WORLD.

IT IS NOT JUST FOR THE

HOME.

IT IS ALSO LOVE THE VERB,

NOT LOVE THE EMOTION.

IF SOMEBODY NEEDS PRAYER,

SHE'LL SEND OUT AN E-MAIL

AND PRAY.

Reporter: THIS C.E.O.

BELIEVES LOVE, THE VERB,

WILL LEAD TO MORE CONTENT

LEADERS, EMPLOYEES, AND

COSTUMERS, A CULTURE WHERE

THE USE OF POWER DOESN'T

BECOME THE ABUSE OF POWER.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS,

BRANSON, MISSOURI.

Terry: A LOT OF WISDOM

IN THAT FOR ALL OF US, ISN'T

THERE?

WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO WORK IN

AN ENVIRONMENT LIKE THAT.

THAT'S AWESOME.

Consuelo:

Gordon: I LOVE TALKING

WITH JOEL.

HE DOESN'T JUST TALK THE

TALK.

HE REALLY WALKS IT.

WE'VE GOT TO REMEMBER THAT

LOVE DOES WORK.

IT NEVER FAILS.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

AND, YOU KNOW, I'LL JUST

UNDERLINE IT.

HE IS NOT TALKING ABOUT SOME

KIND OF AN EMOTION.

HE IS QUOTING OUT OF

CORINTHIANS, THAT WONDERFUL

CHAPTER ON LOVE.

AND IN THE FIRST DESCRIPTION

OF LOVE IS "LOVE IS

PATIENT."

Terry: I LIKE THAT.

AND KIND.

Gordon: AND KIND.

Terry: COMING UP NEXT,

WE'RE GOING TO MEET ANOTHER

ENTREPRENEUR WHO LEADS WITH

LOVE, AND SEE HOW IT TOOK

HER HALF WAY AROUND THE

WORLD.

AND THEN LATER, GORDON SHOWS

US HOW TO COOK A

THANKSGIVING TURKEY AND THEHIS

ULTIMATE MASHED POTATOES.

Gordon: LOCATED ON

THE EASTERN COAST OF AFRICA,

THE COUNTRY OF MOZAMBIQUE

WAS ONE OF THE POOREST

COUNTRIES, BUT FORTUNES ARE

CHANGING, AND NOT JUST

ECONOMICALLY.

JOINING US WITH MORE IS

HEIDI BAKER, WHO HAS BEEN

WORKING AS A MISSIONARY IN

MOZAMBIQUE FOR NEARLY 20

YEARS.

HEIDI, WELCOME BACK TO THE

SHOW.

THANK YOU.

Gordon: GIVE US AN

UPDATE ON MOZAMBIQUE?

IT IS THE FASTEST GROWING

ECONOMY IN THE WORLD --

WELL, IN AFRICA.

Gordon: WHO KNEW?

WHO KNEW.

AND PEOPLE ARE CRASHING IN.

PEOPLE ARE COMING TO JESUS.

THERE WAS A PROVINCE THAT

WAS PEOPLE OF ANOTHER FAITH,

AND THE GOVERNMENT --

Gordon: YOU'RE BEING

POLITICALLY CORRECT.

I AM.

I AM.

PEOPLE OF ANOTHER FAITH.

Gordon: CARE TO NAME

THE FAITH?

MOZAMBIQUE WAS KNOWN AS THE

BATTLEGROUND.

RIGHT.

BUT IN THE NORTH, THERE WERE

ALL THREE PROVINCES OF

ANOTHER FAITH.

AND THE PROVINCE WHERE WE

LIVE, CABO ALGADO, THE

GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCED IT IS

NO LONGER OF THE OTHER

FAITH, THAT IT IS A

CHRISTIAN PROVINCE.

Gordon: THAT IS HUGE.

AND THE GOVERNMENT BOWED

TO JESUS AND LET OUR SENIOR

LEADERS, MOZAMBIQUE LEADERS,

LAY HANDS ON THEM AND

INAUGURATE THEM.

Gordon: THAT IS TRULY

UNBELIEVABLE.

I KNOW.

IT'S A TRUE STORY.

Gordon: BECAUSE THOSE

SAME LEADERS ARE LITERALLY

PUTTING THEIR LIFE ON THE

LINE.

YEAH, THEY ARE.

Gordon: BECAUSE THE

OTHER FAITH WILL COME AND

KILL YOU FOR DOING THAT.

YEAH, WE'VE BEEN IN

TROUBLE.

BUT, YOU SEE, JESUS KEEPS

SHOWING UP.

Gordon: HE DOES THAT.

IT'S A GREAT STORY,

AGAIN, OF LEADERS, BIG CHIEF

LEADERS, AND THE QUEEN WAS

THERE.

THE QUEEN OF THE VILLAGE.

AND SHE BROUGHT A BLIND LADY

TO OUR MEETING, AND NOTHING

HAPPENED.

SHE WENT BACK TO HER HUT

BLIND.

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT,

THIS LADY OF ANOTHER

FAITH -- YOU CAN IMAGINE

WHICH ONE -- AND SHE JUST

GOES TO SLEEP, AND SUDDENLY,

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

IN A HUT WITH NO

ELECTRICITY, HER EYES OPEN

UP.

JESUS OPENS HER EYES.

SHE DOESN'T KNOW WHO OPENED

HER EYES.

TWO DOVES, SHE SEES, COME

DOWN FROM HEAVEN AND LAND ON

HER SHOULDER, AND THEY HAVE

FLOWERS IN HER BEAKS.

AND SO SHE RUNS TO THE

MOSQUE, OKAY.

AND SHE RUNS TO THE MOSQUE

AND SHE SAYS, MY EYES OPENED

UP.

I WAS AT THIS MEETING LAST

NIGHT WHERE THEY WERE

TALKING ABOUT JESUS.

THE SHIA SAID GO AHEAD AND

GO TO THE CHRISTIANS, THEY

CAN EXPLAIN THIS TO YOU.

SHE, OF COURSE, GAVE HER

LIFE TO JESUS.

THE QUEEN OF THE VILLAGE

GAVE HER LIFE TO JESUS.

AND THE LEADER GAVE HIS LIFE

TO JESUS.

THAT'S THE STUFF THAT IS

HAPPENING, JESUS IS SHOWING

UP.

Gordon: THAT IS A

MIRACLE, A STRAIGHT OUT OF

THE PAGES OF THE BIBLE

MIRACLE.

WOW.

YOU SAID ADOPTION WAS ON

YOUR HEART?

THE SPIRITS OF ADOPTION,

AND I THINK IN THE WESTERN

WORLD, THE EASTERN WORLD,

THE AFRICAN WORLD, A LOT OF

PEOPLE STILL HAVE ORPHAN

SPIRITS.

WE TAKE IN LITERAL ORPHANS,

BUT THEY DON'T STAY THAT

WAY.

YOU KNOW, WHEN DADDY GOD

TAKES A HOLD OF YOUR LIFE,

THEN YOU START TO FIND OUT

WHO YOU ARE, AND YOU'RE NO

LONGER AFRAID.

AND I FEEL LIKE THIS SPIRIT

OF ADOPTION IS HERE TO TOUCH

THE CHURCH SO THAT

PEOPLE --

Gordon: IN AMERICA,

WHEN YOUú SAY THE WORDú

"ADOPTION," PEOPLE THINK

ABOUT LITERAL ADOPTION.

BUT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT A

SPIRITUAL CONCEPT WHERE

PEOPLE NO LONGER FEEL ES

ESTRANGED FROM

GOD, THAT GOD IS AWAY FROM

THEM AND HE DOESN'T WEAR

ABOUT THEM, AND HE IS WAY

OFF IN HEAVEN AND HE IS NOT

RIGHT HERE WITH THEM NOW.

YEAH.

WHERE HE TAKES THEIR ORPHAN

SPIRIT.

THE ORPHAN SPIRIT WANTS TO

GET ALL THEY CAN FOR

THEMSELVES.

THEY'RE AFRAID TO GIVE THEIR

LIFE.

THEY'RE AFRAID THEY MIGHT

NOT GET ENOUGH.

THEY MIGHT NOT GET FED.

Gordon: THEY'RE AFRAID

TO TRUST?

YEAH.

BUT WHEN THE SPIRIT OF

ADOPTION HITS YOU, THAT

TOTAL SPIRIT, YOU'RE NOT AN

ORPHAN.

YOU'RE A SON.

WHEN THAT HITS YOU, THEN

EVERYTHING CHANGES AND YOU

ARE FREE TO GIVE YOUR LIFE

AWAY BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHO

YOU ARE.

DADDY LOVES YOU SO YOU CAN

JUST JUMP ON HIS FEET AND

YIELD YOUR LIFE AND DO

ANYTHING AND GO ANYWHERE.

Gordon: AND YOU'RE NOT

JUST TALKING.

YOU'RE LIVING IT.

BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN GIVING

YOUR LIFE AWAY FOR 20

YEARS?

37.

I'VE BEEN PREACHING THE

GOSPEL FOR 37 YEARS.

Gordon: WHAT TOOK YOU

TO MOZAMBIQUE?

I HAD A VISION WHEN I WAS

16.

I HAD JUST BECOME A

CHRISTIAN, AND I WAS

WORSHIPPING THE LORD.

I WAS ON THE FIFTH DAY OF A

FAST.

AND I WAS JUST IN THE GLORY

IN THIS LITTLE TINY

PENTECOSTAL CHURCH.

AND HIS PRESENCE JUST FELL

ON ME.

AND I WAS COVERED IN THIS

WHITE LIGHT.

AND THE ONLY TIME OF 37

YEARS OF LIVING FOR HIM THAT

I HEARD AN AUDIBLE VOICE.

HE SAID TO GO TO AFRICA,

ASIA, AND ENGLAND.

BEEN TO ASIA 12 YEARS, WITH

MY HUSBAND, ROLLAND, IN THE

U.K. FOR THREE, AND THEN IT

WAS AFRICA.

AND WHERE IN AFRICA, LORD?

AFRICA IS A HUGE PLACE.

WHERE ARE WE GOING?

AND HE SAID GO TO THE

POOREST NATION ON THE

EARTH.

THAT WAS MOZAMBIQUE.

SO I JUST SAT ON THE STREET

CORNER AND LEARNED THE

LANGUAGE FROM THE CHILDREN.

AND THEN HE SAID, BRING THEM

HOME.

AND I DIDN'T HAVE A HOME.

BUT HE GAVE US HOMES.

AND HE GAVE US LOTS OF

HOMES.

NOW WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF

HOMES AND THOUSANDS OF

CHURCHES.

AND THE PASTORS KNOW AND

UNDERSTAND THAT ALL PASTORS

TAKE HOME ORPHANS.

Gordon: HOW IS ALL OF

THIS BEING SPORTED?

THE BEAUTIFUL BODY OF

CHRIST.

JUST PEOPLE WHO CARE.

Gordon: PEOPLE FROM

AROUND THE WORLD?

FROM AROUND THE WORL.

-- FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

THEY JUST CARE.

WE FIGURE IF GOD CALLS YOU

TO DO SOMETHING, THEN HE'LL

PAY FOR IT.

AND KIDS ARE ON HIS HEART,

STARVING KIDS.

Gordon: I LIKE TO SAY,

IF IT'S GOD'S WILL IT'S

GOD'S BILL.

YEAH.

HOW CAN YOU WORRY ABOUT IT.

Gordon: IF HE SAYS TO

DO IT, DO IT.

TO BUILD SCHOOLS,

CLINICS, HOSPITALS,

UNIVERSITIES -- WHAT HE

SAYS -- YOU GUYS KNOW IT

WELL HERE.

YOU CAN'T FREAK OUT ABOUT

IT.

IF YOU'RE A DAUGHTER OR A

SON AND HE SAYS TO DO IT,

THEN YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A

HUGE FAMILY.

YOU NEVER DO ANYTHING

ALONE.

WE ALL NEED EACH OTHER.

WE'RE LIKE A CONNECTED NET.

HE SHOWED ME THAT ONE DAY.

I WAS PRAYING, WHAT'S THE

VISION FOR IRIS, AND I SAW

THIS HUGE NET, AND I

THOUGHT, THAT'S THE IRIS

NET.

AND I HEARD THE INTERNAL

VOICE.

AND HE SAID, THAT'S NOT

IRIS, THAT'S THE WHOLE NET.

HE IS SHOWING ME PEOPLE LIKE

YOURSELVES.

HE IS SHOWING ME ALL OF

THESE DIFFERENT THINGS, "Y"

LAMB AND "THE 700 CLUB" AND

ALL OF THE TRANSLATORS, AND

HE SAID YOU'RE THIS LITTLE

PIECE, THE TINY PIECE OF THE

NET.

AND I SAW THIS CORD COMING

DOWN FROM HEAVEN WITH

ANGELS, WEAVING IN

TOGETHER.

AND HE SAID, ONLY WHEN YOU

WORK TOGETHER CAN YOU BRING

IN THE HARVEST.

IT WAS POWERFUL.

Gordon: THAT'S VERY

TRUE.

IT WAS SO POWERFUL.

Gordon: WHAT DO YOU

THINK ABOUT AMERICA TODAY?

WE SEEM TO BE DEEPLY

DIVIDED.

THERE SEEMS TO BE A LOT OF

RANCOR AND PEOPLE THROWING

INCREDIBLY HARSH WORDS AT

EACH OTHER.

I THINK WE NEED TO GO LOW

AND SLOW AND LISTEN TO ONE

ANOTHER.

WE NEED TO LISTEN TO ONE

ANOTHER.

BECAUSE THERE ARE THINGS ON

PEOPLE'S HEARTS THAT NEED TO

BE SHARED.

AND IF WE JUST ATTACK AND

DON'T LISTEN, THEN WE MISS

IT.

AND AS WE GO LOW AND SLOW

AND WE LISTEN TO ONE

ANOTHER, AND WE CRY OUT FOR

MERCY, AND WE CRY OUT FOR

GOD'S MERCY AND GRACE, I

BELIEVE HE'LL HEAL OUR

LAND.

AND I'VE BEEN COMING -- I

TRAVELLED A THIRD OF MY

LIFE, AND I'VE BEEN COMING

MORE OFTEN HERE TO CALL

YOUNG PEOPLE INTO THEIR

DESTINIES AND TO BELIEVE

THAT IF THEY'RE CALLED INTO

THE POLITICAL REALM, THAT

THEY'LL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES

TO BE FORMED, TO BE TRAINED,

TO BE IN THE PLACE WHERE

THEY CAN LITERALLY SPEAK

INTO THE NATION.

I FEEL LIKE GOD WANTS TO

CALL SOME KIDS OUT THERE WHO

ARE STILL BEING FORMED, TO

RISE UP TO SHINE IN DARK

PLACES.

AND RIGHT NOW THERE IS A LOT

OF DARKNESS.

Gordon: THERE IS.

AND WE HAVE TO MAKE A

CHANGE.

Gordon: BUT I AGREE

WITH YOU, THE GENERATION

COMING UP RIGHT NOW GIVES ME

SO MUCH HOPE.

THEY ARE SO ACTIVE.

THEY WANT TO CHANGE THE

WORLD.

THEY WANT TO IMPROVE THE

WORLD.

AND THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

GIVE UP.

AND I LOVE THAT.

ALL RIGHT.

I THINK WE'RE OUT OF TIME.

WE CAN TALK FOREVER.

BLESS YOU.

Gordon: THANKS FOR

BEING WITH US.

IF YOU WANT MORE INFORMATION

ABOUT IRIS MINISTRIES, ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

CBN.COM.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: IT IS HARD TO

BELIEVE IT, BUT THANKSGIVING

IS ONLY FOUR WEEKS AWAY.

BUT THAT IS PLENTY OF TIME

FOR YOU TO PREP A SUCCULENT

FEAST, AND WE'RE GOING TO

GIVE YOU OUR TOP TURKEY

TRICKS WHEN WE COME BACK.

STAY WITH US.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

IN FRANCE, SUPPORTERS OF

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE

PROTESTED THE GOVERNMENT'S

PUSH TO LEGALIZE GAY

MARRIAGE AND GIVE HOMOSEXUAL

COUPLES THE RIGHT TO ADOPT.

HUNDREDS CAME OUT TO SPEAK

OUT FOR FAMILY VALUES IN

PARIS THIS WEEK.

THOSE POSTERS SAY "A FATHER,

A MOTHER, WE DON'T LIE TO

CHILDREN."

WE'RE AGAINST THIS LAW IN

THE NAME OF THE RIGHTS OF

THE CHILDREN.

BECAUSE WE WANT TO PROTECT

THE CHILDREN AGAINST A VERY

UNFAIR DEPRIVATION, THE ONE

OF A DADDY OR A MOMMY.

IT IS A NECESSITY TO HELP

THE FAMILIES WHO HAVE

PROBLEMS, SINGLE FAMILIES,

CHILDREN WHO NEED SUPPORT.

BUT IT SEEMS UNFAIR TO

DELIBERATELY DECIDE A CHILD

WON'T HAVE A FATHER OR Ap

MOTHER.

Lee: THAT BILL IS SET

TO BE INTRODUCED TO THE

FRENCH PARLIAMENT

NOVEMBER 7th.

SCIENTISTS IN OREGON HAVE

CREATED HUMAN EMBRYOS USING

THE GENES FROM THREE

PEOPLE.

RESEARCHERS AT THE OREGON

HEALTH AND SCIENCES

UNIVERSITY USED A

CONTROVERSIAL TECHNIQUE THAT

BLENDS THE GENES OF ONE MAN

AND TWO WOMEN.

THE SCIENTISTS STRESSED

THEY'RE NOT USING THE

EMBRYOS TO CREATE CHILDREN.

BUT THEY LEAD IT CAN LEAD TO

BREAKTHROUGHS TO REPLACE

DEFECTIVE GENES, AND THE

PASSING OF INCURABLE

DISEASES FROM ONE GENERATION

TO THE NEXT.

CRITICS SAY IT COULD

LEAD TO THE CREATION OF

DESIGNER BABIES AND PROBLEMS

MAY NOT SURFACE FOR SEVERAL

GENERATIONS.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: THE

THANKSGIVING DINNER CAN BE

ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT

MEALS TO PREPARE ALL YEAR

LONG.

EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE

COOKED JUST RIGHT.

AND IF IT IS NOT, YOU HAVE

THIS GUILT YOU'RE LETTING

PEOPLE DOWN.

THAT CAN BE STRESSFUL, SO

DON'T FLIP OUT.

INSTEAD, JUST FLIP YOUR

TURKEY.

RECENTLY I WENT TO THE

KITCHEN WITH KRISTI WATTS TO

SHOW HERE HOW IN DONE.

TODAY WE'RE COOKING

THANKSGIVING DINNER, AND

BECAUSE I'M COOKING WITH

KRISTI, IT'S GOING TO BE

THANKSGIVING DINNER MADE

EASY.

WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO

SAY?

Gordon: THAT YOU CAN'T

COOK, BUT YOU'RE GETTING

BETTER.

A COUPLE OF YEARS WE DID THE

WHOLE THING THAT CATH AND I

DO, WITH THE TURKEY AND THE

BRIAN. BRINE.

TODAY IS THANKSGIVING THE

EASY WAY.

SO EASY YOU CAN DO IT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT A WHOLE LOT OF

PREPARATION.

FOR THANKSGIVING, YOU ALWAYS

HAVE TO STARTER WITH THE

TURKEY.

THE TURKEY TAKES THE LONGEST

TO COOK.

YOU HAVE TO SET ASIDE THREE

AND A HALF HOURS SO THE

TURKEY HAS TIME TO REST.

WHY DOES THE TURKEY NEED

TO REST?

Gordon: SO THE JUICES

REDISTRIBUTE AND IT HELPS

WITH THE MOISTURE.

AND THE WHOLE THING WITH THE

BURNING PROCESS, IS TO MAKE

SURE THAT THE TURKEY MEAT

AND THE BREAST MEAT ARE

MOIST.

TURKEY HAS VERY LITTLE FAT,

SO YOU HAVE TO DO EXTRA

THINGS, LIKE BRINING IT.

WHAT YOU DO IS COOK IT UP

SIDE DOWN.

THIS IS THE BACKBONE.

AND THE BREAST IS NOW ON THE

BOTTOM.

AND ALL OF THE FAT FROM THE

DARK MEAT AND THE BACK MEAT

IS GOING TO FLOW THROUGH THE

BREAST MEAT AND WON'T COME

OUT.

AND THIS IS THE OTHER TRICK,

YOU DON'T PUT IT ON ANY KIND

OF WIRE RACK BECAUSE YOU

DON'T WANT IT STICKING TO

THAT.

WHEN YOU TURN IT TO FINISH

IT, YOU WANT THE SKIN TO BE

ALL RIGHT AND WONDERFUL AND

LOOK GOOD.

SO FOR PRESENTATION

PURPOSES, YOU PUT IT ON A

BED OF CELERY AND ONIONS.

PLEASE DON'T USE CARROTS

BECAUSE CARROTS WILL BURN IN

THREE HOURS IN AN OVEN.

I LIKE SAGE, WE'VE GOT

ROSEMARY AND TIME, ALL FRESH

HERBS.

.T

YOU PUT THAT IN THE CAVITY

OF THE BIRD AND ALL OF THAT

WILL HELP KEEP IT MOIST.

BECAUSE WHEN THE CAVITY

DRIES OUT, IT WILL DRY OUT

THE TURKEY.

ALL OF THAT WILL PROVIDE

MOISTNESS AND FLAVOR.

DO YOU CHOP IT UP OR SHOVE

IT UP?

I SHOVE IT UP BECAUSE

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO EAT IT.

KEEP THE SECRET IT IS UNIONS

AND CELERY, AND UP SIDE DOWN

FOR TWO HOURS.

BEFORE YOU PUT THE BIRD IN,

TAKE FOUR TABLESPOONS OF

BUTTER.

CHOP THAT INTO LITTLE PIECES

AND PUSH IT UNDER THE SKIN

OF THE BREAST MEAT.

Kristi: COME ON,

BROTHER, I HAVE NEVER DONE

THAT.

I WOULD TAKE THE BUTTER AND

I WOULD PUT IT ON TOP --

Gordon: YOU'VE GOT TO

GET IT UNDERNEATH THE SKIN

AND THAT WAY THE BIRD

DOESN'T BURN.

YOU'RE GOING TO NEED OVEN

MITS AND YOU TAKE EACH SIDE

AND YOU JUST FLIP.

YOU WANT A LIGHT BIRD FOR

THIS.

YOU DON'T WANT ONE OF THE

BIG 26-POUND MONSTERS THAT

FEED 20 PEOPLE.

ARE YOU READY FOR MY

ULTIMATE MASHED POTATOES?

Kristi: COME ON,

BROTHER.

I'M READY.

YOU KNOW POTATOES ARE ONE OF

MY FAVORITE SIDES.

Gordon: DO YOU KNOW

WHAT LEEKS ARE?

I'VE HEARD OF THEM, BUT,

NO.

DO THEY HAVE A TASTE?

Gordon: YEAH, THEY'RE

VERY MUCH LIKE UNIONS.

VERY MUCH LIKE UNIONS.

Gordon: I'M NOT SURE

YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT.

A LITTLE SALT IN YOUR

BUTTER -- WHATNOT TO DO IN

THE KITCHEN WITH KRISTI.

DON'T EAT RAW UNIONS.

Kristi: WAS THAT

TACKY.

Gordon: YOU NEED A

BREATH MINT.

Kristi: I KNOW.

Gordon: YOU'RE HEARING

THAT SIZZLE, ALL OF THAT IS

GOOD.

YOU ARE TRYING TO COOK THIS

DOWN UNTIL THEY'RE JUST

WILTED.

YOU DON'T WANT ANY COLOR ON

THEM.

YOU WANT A PIECE OF THAT

ORANGE?

Kristi: IS IT THAT

BAD?

I HAVE SOME APPLE?

Gordon: ALL RIGHT.

DON'T TALK WITH YOUR MOUTH

FULL.

Kristi: ALL RIGHT.

FINISH UP.

Gordon: I'LL START THE

CARROTS.

THIS IS A REAL SIMPLE CARROT

DISH, BUT IT ADDS A LOT OF

FLAVOR BECAUSE YOU'RE USING

ORANGE WITH IT.

YOU START WITH SOME WATER,

AND BRING IT UP TO A BOIL.

A COUPLE OF TABLESPOONS IN

THE BOTTOM.

YOU'RE JUST TRYING TO GET IT

TO A POINT WHERE YOU'LL

CREATE A WHOLE LOT OF STEAM,

BUT YOU DON'T WANT A WHOLE

LOT OF LIQUID ON THAT.

YOU NEED TO SALT THIS, TOO.

Kristi: THAT IS THE

COOLEST LITTLE SALT THING.

Gordon: ALL RIGHT, YOU

CUT YOUR CARROTS ON THE

BIAS, AND YOU PUT THEM INTO

THE HOT WATER.

Kristi: I WOULD HAVE

SAID CUT THEM ON A SLANT,

BUT I'LL USE THE WORD

"BIAS."

Gordon: OKAY.

THIS IS GETTING SOME COLOR.

NOW, DO YOU SMELL THE

DIFFERENCE?

YOU DON'T LIKE IT?

Kristi: NO, I DO LIKE

IT.

BUT YOU'RE LIKE SMELL THE

DIFFERENCE FROM WHAT?

Gordon: THAT RAW THING

YOU ATE.

WHEN YOU COOK IT DOWN, IT

GETS A REALLY MILD UNION

FLAVOR.8

Kristi: IT'S ACTUALLY

LOVELY.

Gordon: YOU COOK IT

DOWN UNTIL IT IS WILTED.

AND THEN YOU ADD IN THIS

WONDERFUL HEAVY CREAM.

THIS IS NOT A LOW-FAT

RECIPE.

Kristi: I SEE.

Gordon: THAT WAS

PROBABLY ABOUT A CUP, A CUP

AND A HALF.

YOU BRING THIS BACK UP TO

HEAT BECAUSE YOU NEED ALL OF

THIS HOT.

YOU'RE GOING TO ADD IT INTO

POTATOES THAT YOU'VE ALREADY

COOKED.

AND YOU GET TO HAVE FUN WITH

POWER TOOLS IN THE KITCHEN,

WHICH IS REALLY NICE.

Kristi: WHICH YOU KNOW

I'M EXCITED ABOUT.

Gordon: HAVE YOU EVER

USED ONE OF THESE?

Kristi: NO, I HAVE

NOT -- WELL, SOMETHING

SIMILAR FOR LIKE A

MILKSHAKE.

Gordon: THIS IS A STICK

BLENDER.

INSTEAD OF TRYING TO PUT

THIS INTO A BLENDER, YOU

TAKE THE BLENDER TO IT.

AND THAT'S REALLY COOL.

YOU WANT TO TRY THIS?

Kristi: YOU KNOW I DO,

BROTHER.

YOU KNOW I DO.

Gordon: BE CAREFUL.

NOTICE I'M BACKING UP.

Kristi: I DID NOTICE

YOU BACKED UP.

I SAW THAT.

Gordon: SEE HOW EASY

THAT IS.

Kristi: IT'S VERY

EASY.

BUT IT'S WHIPPING THE

CREAM.

IS IT SUPPOSED TO BE

CHOPPING UP THE LEEKS?

IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE

CHOPPING UP THE LEEKS.

Kristi: AM I DONE?

Gordon: I THINK YOU AR

DONE.

NOW WE TURN OFF THE HEAT.

WE TAKE THIS.

NOW, ONE OF THE KEYS TO

MASHED POST TOES IS HAVING

-- POTATOES IS HAVING THE

RIGHT MIX.

I LIKE YUKON GOLD, BUT I

LIKE RUSSETS BECAUSE IT

MAKES IT THAT FLUFFY

TEXTURE.

SO YOU GET THE FLAVOR OF THE

YUKONS AND THEN THE RED

POTATOES.

YOU DRAIN THE SALTED WATER

OFF AND THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE

LEFT WITH.

YOU POUR THIS ON AND DO

ABOUT HALF OF IT AT FIRST.

YOU KNOW HOW TO MASH,

RIGHT.

Kristi: OF COURSE.

CAN WE USE THAT

THING AGAIN?

Gordon: NO, BECAUSE YOU

WANT TO HAVE TEXTURE.

YOU HAVE TO WATCH HOW MUCH

CREAM YOU USE BECAUSE YOU

DON'T WANT IT TO TURN INTO

SOUP.

Kristi: I THINK IT'S

PERFECT -- DO YOU THINK?

Gordon: DO YOU WANT TO

TASTE IT?

Kristi: WHAT ABOUT

PEPPER.

YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE PEPPER.

YOU KNOW I LIKE TO USE THESE

LITTLE THINGS.

YOU WANT ME TO TASTE IT

RIGHT FROM THERE?

Gordon: YEAH.

Kristi: THAT'S KIND OF

TACKY.

SHOULDN'T I PUT IT ON A

PLATE?

Gordon: NO.

IT'S A COOK'S TEST.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO DIP BACK

IN.

Kristi: YUMMY.

WHEN I TASTED THE LEEKS, I

THOUGHT IT WAS VERY UNIONY,

AND I GOT WORRIED -- I'M NOT

GOING TO LIE -- BUT THE

WHOLE THING TASTES LIKE

POTATOES.

Gordon: AND YOU GO,

WOW, WHAT IS THAT?

YOU'RE NOT SURE OF THAT.

Kristi: YOU JUST TAUGHT

ME SOMETHING, GORDON,

BECAUSE THOSE ARE GOOD.

Gordon: READY TO GO

BACK OVER HERE TO THE

CARROTS, WHICH OUGHT TO BE

DONE.

YOU KNOW WHAT I FORGOT?

Kristi: WHAT DID YOU

FORGET?

Gordon: THE ORANGE

PEEL.

I SHOULD HAVE PUT ITF IN

THERE WHEN THEY WERE

STEAMING, BUT I'LL PUT IT IN

NOW.

YOU ADD IN A COUPLE OF

TABLESPOONS OF BUTTER IN THE

END.

YOU COOK THEM IN THE WATER,

AND THEN YOU USE THE WATER.

THAT IS SUGAR.

WHAT YOU WANT IS TO TAKE

ABOUT A TEASPOON OF THIS,

AND THIS GIVES YOU THAT

WONDERFUL GLAZE.

Kristi: REALLY?

I TELL YOU, SOMETHING,

YOU'RE SCHOOLING ME HERE.

I NEVER WOULD HAVE THOUGHT

TO BE ORANGES AND CARROTS.

Gordon: ALL YOU'VE GOT

TO DO IS WAIT UNTIL THE

BUTTER MELTS, AND THERE IS

ENOUGH HEAT TO PARTIALLY

CARMELIZE THAT SUGAR.

AND AT THE END OF THIS --

Kristi: HOW CONVENIENT

IS THAT?

THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.

Gordon: THANKSGIVING

MADE EASY.

GLAZED CARROTS.

Kristi: CAN I TASTE

THAT NOW, TOO?

Gordon: YEAH.

WHAT DO YOU THINK -- YOU

HAVEN'T PUT IT IN YOUR MOUTH

YET.

Kristi: SERIOUSLY, I

THINK THERE IS A WONDERFUL

COMBINATION BETWEEN BUTTER

AND SUGAR THAT JUST MAKES

THE WORLD A HAPPY PLACE.

Gordon: WASN'T THAT

GREAT?

IT SHOULD HAVE A LITTLE MORE

ORANGE FLAVOR.

WE'RE GOING TO MOVE OVER.

THIS IS WHAT THE TURKEY

LOOKS LIKE WHEN YOU TAKE IT

OUT, AND IT IS STILL MOIST.

THIS IS HOW THAT GRAVY TURNS

OUT.

IT HAS GOT A WONDERFUL

VEGETABLE FLAVOR TO

IT.

HERE IS ONE OF CATHERINE'S

FAVORITES.

WITH AN OATMEAL TOPPING.

THESE ARE PEAS AND UNIONS,

WHICH IS SORT OF A

TRADITION.

THIS IS REAL SIMPLE AND

BEAUTIFUL TO MAKE.

Kristi: WHAT IS THAT?

Gordon: YOU TAKE A

WHEEL OF BRIE AND YOU TAKE

SOME PIECES OF APPLE.

YOU PUT THAT INTO THE OVEN,

PUT BROWN SUGAR INTO THE

BRIE, AND YOU DRIZZLE HONEY

ALL OVER IT, AND THE APPLES

ARE ALL WARM AND COOKED, AND

IT IS DELICIOUS.

PECAN PIE -- THIS IS THE PIE

THAT HAS MADE ME THE LARGE

MAN I AM.

IT CALLS TO ME AT NIGHT.

I'LL BE IN BED, AND IT WILL

SAY EAT.

A WONDERFUL PECAN PIE, AND

SHE HAS REDUCED THE CALORIE

COUNT ON THIS.

YOU WANT SOME GRAVY WITH

THIS?

Kristi: YEAH.

GRAVY MAKES ME HAPPY.

Gordon: ALL OF THESE

RECIPES ARE AVAILABLE FROM

CBN.COM.

IF YOU WANT TO LEARN HOW TO

COOK THE UP SIDE DOWN

TURKEY, HOW TO MAKE MY

ULTIMATE MASHED POTATOES,

ALL OF CATHERINES PIES --

ALL OF IT AVAILABLE ON

THANKSGIVING MADE EASY.

YOU CAN FIND IT ON

cbn.com, AND DOWNLOAD IT

FOR FREE, AND THIS YOU'RE

YOU CAN SAY WE'RE GOING TO

HAVE AN EASY THANKSGIVING

MEAL.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

KRISTI FINISHES EATING.

Terry: OVER THE YEARS,

CBN HAS DRILLED THOUSANDS OF

WELLS TO PROVIDE CLEAN WATER

FOR PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

BUT IN ONE PART OF INDIA,

DRILLING IS ACTUALLY

ILLEGAL, SO WE HAD TO FIND A

NEW WAY TO GET DRINKING

WATER FOR AN ENTIRE

VILLAGE.

Reporter: WHEN

10-YEAR-OLD PUSHA ISN'T AT

SCHOOL, SHE HELPS HER MOTHER

TAKE CARE OF THEIR WATER

BUFFALO.

BUT LATELY THEIR LIVES HAVE

BEEN ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT,

THAT'S BECAUSE PUSHA AND HER

FAMILY HAVE BEEN GETTING

SICK FROM THEIR DRINKING

WATER.

IT IS INFECTED WITH LARVAE.

LICE ONCE CAME OUT OF MY

HANDS, AND I SORES ON MY

FACE AND I HAD STOMACH

ACHES.

Reporter: PUSHA'S PAIN

WAS SO BAD SHE COULDN'T GO

TO SCHOOL ANYMORE.

MANY OF HER NEIGHBORS WERE

ALSO GETTING SICK FROM THE

WATER.

WHEN CBN HEARD ABOUT THEIR

PROBLEM, WE WANTED TO DRILL

THEM A WELL.

BUT THAT IS AGAINST THE LAW

BECAUSE THE WATER LEVEL IN

THEIR AREA IS TOO LAW.

SO WE CAME UP WITH ANOTHER

PLAN, PORTABLE WATER

FILTERS.

ENOUGH FOR A FAMILY OF FOUR

TO LIVE ON FOR A YEAR.

WHEN THE FILTERS NEED TO BE

REPLACED, IT WILL ONLY COST

$5.

PUSHA AND HER FAMILY HAVE

ALREADY SEEN A BIG

DIFFERENCE IN THEIR LIVES.

THE WATER WE USED TO

DRINK, THEY SAID IT WAS NOT

GOOD, BUT NOW MY CHILDREN

LIKE TO DRINK A LOT OF

WATER.

THE WORMS ARE ALL GONE

AND WE DON'T HAVE

STOMACHACHES.

I FEEL SO GOOD.

Reporter: WITH YOUR

HELP, CBN PLANS TO GIVE

WATER PURIFYERS TO EVERY

FAMILY IN THIS VILLAGE, SO

THEY CAN ALL HAVE CLEAN

DRINKING WATER.

I WANT TO THANK ALL OF

THE PEOPLE WHO GAVE US THE

WATER FILTER.

SINCE I DON'T GET SICK

ANYMORE, I CAN GO TO

SCHOOL.

THE WATER FILT HAS MADE OUR

LIVES SO MUCH BETTER.

Terry: IT IS HARD FOR

YOU AND I TO IMAGINE THAT IN

MOST PARTS OF THE WORLD,

WATER IS DIFFICULT TO COME

BY, CLEAN WATER, SOMETIMES

IMPOSSIBLE.

THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE WAYS

AS A "700 CLUB" MEMBER THAT

YOU'RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE

IN THE LIVES OF THOUSANDS

AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

AND IT'S THE REASON WE ASK

YOU TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE OUT TO TOUCH PEOPLE'S

LIVES, IN PRACTICAL WAYS,

LIKE YOU JUST SAW, BUT ALSO

WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS

CHRIST.

YOU CAN BE A PART OF

THAT BY JOINING "THE 700

CLUB," IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY,

JUST $20 A MONTH.

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WHEN YOU DO, WE WANT TO SEND

YOU "GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA,

HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE DAYS

AHEAD."

THIS IS A TEACHING BY PAT.

WE THINK IT WILL REALLY BE

AVAILABLE TO YOU.

AND YOU'LL KNOW YOU'RE

TOUCHING AND CHANGING

SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE AT THE

SAME TIME.

GORDON, TIME FOR SOME

E-MAILS.

READY?

Gordon: LET'S BRING IT

ON.

Terry: JERRY SAYS,

"SEVERAL YEARS AGO, MY WIFE

HEARD THE LORD TELL HER SHE

HAD A GIFT OF HEALING AND

SHE WAS TO PRAY FOR PEOPLE'S

SIC NECESSARY.

SHE HAS SINCE SEEN SO MANY

MIRACLES TAKE PLACE.

WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND IS

WHY SHE HASN'T BEEN HEALED.

SHE HAS TERRIBLE BACK PAIN.

WE PRAYED AND ASKED THE LORD

FOR HEALING, YET SHE STILL

SUFFERS.

WHY CAN SHE BE USED TO HEAL

OTHERS, BUT SHE IS STILL IN

PAIN?"

Gordon: THIS IS ONE OF

THE GREAT MIRACLES.

HE TAUGHT ME A GREAT DEAL BY

MINISTRY AND THE WORD OF

HEALING -- I WOULD GO AROUND

WITH HIM TO CONFERENCES IN

INDIA.

IT WAS TRULY A WONDERFUL

EXPERIENCE.

BUT HE HAD POLIO AS A

CHILD.

AND HE WOULD HAVE TO HAVE

SOMEONE HELP HIM GET TO THE

PULPIT.

AND HE WOULD HAVE LEG BRACES

THAT WOULD LITERALLY LOCK IN

PLACE TO ALLOW HIM TO

SPEAK.

TREMENDOUS ANOINTING.

TREMENDOUS POWER OF GOD.

THEY CALL HIM THE BILLY

GRAHAM OF INDIA.

WHEN HE WOULD HAVE THESE

MEETINGS, THERE WOULD BE

500,000 PEOPLE IN

ATTENDANCE.

AND IT WAS JUST AN ANGUISH

FOR HIM.

HE LIVED A LIFE IN PAIN.

AND I'LL NEVER FORGET, HE

SAID, GORDON, YOU'VE PRAYED

FOR MANY PEOPLE, BUT YOU'VE

NEVER PRAYED FOR ME.

THAT HE WANTED ME TO PRAY

FOR HIM.

AND SO WHY DIDN'T GOD HE'LL

HIM?

I DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T HAVE ALL OF THE

ANSWERS.

IT IS ONE OF THE GREAT

MYSTERIES.

BUT I WILL TELL YOU, KEEP

PRAYING, KEEP SEEKING, AND

KEEP KNOCKING, AND REALIZE

GOD LOVES YOU INFINITELY.

GOD WANTS TO HEAL YOU.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO ARGUE HIM

INTO IT.

IT IS BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

KEEP PRAYING FOR OTHERS AND

KEEP ASKING GOD FOR

YOURSELF.

Terry: THIS IS FROM

SANDRA WHO SAYS,

"WHAT EPHESIANS 2: 8 AND 9

MEAN.

IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD, NOT

BY WORKS SO NO ONE CAN

BOAST.

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN CONFUSED BY

THE TERM GRACE, AND WILL YOU

HELP ME UNDERSTAND THE

MEANING OF THAT WORD?"

Gordon: THE MEANING

BEHIND GRACE IS WHERE WE GET

THE ENGLISH WORD "CHARITY."

IT IS GOD'S GIFT TO YOU.

DID YOU COME UP WITH YOU?

DID YOU INVENT YOU?

NO.

GOD DID.

WHO INVENTED SALVATION?

DID YOU?

NO, GOD DID.

LET IT BE ALL ON HIM, THAT

IT IS HIS FREE GIFT TO YOU,

AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO

RECEIVE IS IT HAVE FAITH.

IT IS BY GRACE, THROUGH

FAITH, THAT YOU'RE SAVED.

IT IS NOT OF ANY WORKS OF

THE LAW.

IT'S TOTALLY FROM GRACE.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM FROM PSALM 55:

"CAST YOUR BURDEN ON THE

LORD, AND HE SHALL SUSTAIN

YOU."

GOD BLESS YOU, AND WE'LL SEE

YOU AGAIN.
