HURRICANE SANDY HAS FOLKS ON

THE EAST COAST ON EDGE.

FLOODING RAINS, HIGH WINDS, FORK

FORECASTERS EVEN CALLING FOR

SNOW.

WE'LL HAVE THE LATEST ON THE

MONSTER SYSTEM THEY CALL

FRANKENSTORM.

THE WORLD SERIES HEAR FROM

PLAYERS WHO SAY JESUS CHRIST IS

THE REAL VICTORY.

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE, I AM LEE

WEB.

WE BEGIN WITH THE LATEST

FORECAST.

WE TURN TO ACCUWEATHER'S ADRIAN

GREEN. RIGHT ON IN THROUGH

TOMORROW, IT HAS STARTED THE

LEFTWARD TURN.

WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO SEE

IT THROUGHOUT NEW JERSEY SHORE.

CERTAINLY SOMETHING TO KEEP IN

MIND THERE.

IT IS NOT JUST THEM FEELING THE

IMPACT.

WE FELT IT FROM BALTIMORE DOWN

TO VIRGINIA BEACH, SOME

LOCATIONS HAVE PICKED UP ONE TO

TWO INCHES OF RAIN IN A SHORT

AMOUNT OF TIME.

QUITE A LOT OF FLOODING.

WE HAVE ALSO GOT TO CONTEND WITH

THE SURGE, FIVE TO TEN FOOT

STORM SURGE FUNNELING IN FROM

NEW JERSEY UP TO NEW YORK CITY.

A BIG TIME FACTOR HERE, SOME

LOCATIONS ALONG THE MASON-DIXON

LINE COULD PICK UP EIGHT INCHES

OF RAIN AND GUSTS UP TO AROUND

60-70 MILES AN HOUR AND LOCALLY

GUSTIER.

A LOT OF TREES AND POWER LINES

COULD COME DOWN BECAUSE OF THE

GUSTY WINDS HERE TODAY AND INTO

THE DAY TOMORROW.

WE HAVE THE SNOWY SIDE OF THINGS

UP AND DOWN THE APPALACHIANS.

WE HAVE GUSTY WINDS AND A LOT OF

SNOW HEADING THAT WAY AS WELL.

THANK YOU, ADRIAN FOR THAT

REPORT.

YOU HEARD ADRIAN TALKING ABOUT

WASHINGTON, D.C. MUCH OF THE

NATION'S CAPITOL IS SHUT DOWN AS

SANDY BRINGS RAIN AND WIND.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS MORE.

WE ARE IN LAFAYETTE PARK IN

FRONT OF WASHINGTON.

WINDS ARE INCREASING AS THE DAY

PROGRESSES.

A SUSTAINED EVENT WITH HEAVY

RAINS AND HIGH WINDS.

TONIGHT WE ARE LOOKING AT

HURRICANE FORCE WINDS, 60-70

MILES AN HOUR.

TRIES WILL FALL AND POWER WILL

BE DISRUPTED.

THE CITY IS PRETTY DEAD.

FEDERAL WORKERS WERE TOLD TO

TAKE THE DAY OFF.

CITY ALSO SHUT DOWN ITS METRO

SYSTEM.

VERY FEW PEOPLE COMING INTO THE

CITY.

PRESIDENT OBAMA PLANNED TO

CAMPAIGN IN FLORIDA.

HE FLEW THERE SUNDAY EVENING.

HE DECIDED HE NEEDED TO GET AIR

FORCE ONE BACK TO WASHINGTON,

SAFELY.

HE IS MONITORING THE STORM FROM

THE WHITE HOUSE.

GOVERNOR ROMNEY CANCELLED IN

VIRGINIA SO AS NOT TO TIE UP

OFFICIALS.

RESIDENTS ARE TAKING HURRICANE

SANDY SERIOUSLY.

THEY REMEMBER THE STORM THAT HIT

IN JULY.

DURING THAT STORM, THOUSANDS OF

RESIDENTS LEFT WITHOUT POWER,

SOME FOR WEEKS.

THAT MEMORY IS STILL FRESH IN

THEIR MINDS AND MANY RESIDENTS

SPENT THE WEEKEND PREPARING FOR

HURRICANE SANDY.

HUNKERED DOWN IN WASHINGTON,

D.C., I AM JENNIFER WISHON, CBN

NEWS.

THANK YOU, JENNIFER FOR

BRAVING IF WEATHER IN

WASHINGTON.

HURRICANE SANDY COULD COVER

HUNDREDS OF SQUARE MILES AND

CAUSE 100 BILLION DOLLARS IN

DAMAGE.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

WASHINGTON'S ENTIRE PUBLIC

TRANSIT SYSTEM SHUT DOWN, MANY

MAJOR HIGHWAYS CLOSED.

ALL AIR TRAVEL CANCELLED UNTIL

SANDY PASSED.

IT AFFECTS TRAVELERS ALL OVER

THE COUNTRY. AS THE STORM

CONTINUES ON ITS TRACK, MILLIONS

ARE AFFECTED FROM CAROLINAS TO

CANADA AND WEST TO THE GREAT

LAKES. THIS STORM IS GOING

TO HAVE THE WORST

CHARACTERISTICS OF A HURRICANE

AND NOR'EASTER.

LARGE AREA OF FLOODING RAIN AND

DAMAGING WINDS.

RIGHT NOW THE MOST LIKELY

SCENARIO HAS A STORM SURGE IN

LONG ISLAND SOUND OF SEVEN TO

TEN FEET AND AS HIGH AS ELEVEN

FEET.

THAT WOULD LEAD TO UNPRECEDENTED

FLOODING.

LAST TIME WE SAW THIS WAS NEVER

P. WAS NEVER.

OFFICIALS EXPECT POWER CREWS

FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY ON STAND

BY.

ESTIMATED 10 MILLION PEOPLE

COULD LOSE POWER.

NEW YORK CITY OFFICIALS ARE IN

THE THICK OF PREPARATIONS.

FOLKS IN MANHATTAN COULD SEE

MAJOR DAMAGE AS WELL.

HERE IN NJ NEW JERSEY AND NEW

YORK, MANY PREPARED FOR THE

WORST WHILE HOPING FOR THE BEST.

POWER COMPANY WORKERS DILIGENTLY

PLACE SANDBAGS NEAR THE CITY'S

UNDERGROUND ELECTRICAL GRID

WHICH IS VITAL TO THE NATION'S

FINANCIAL CENTER.

MASSIVE FLOODING ARE EXPECTED TO

HIT THE NATION'S MOST POPULOUS

CITY HARD.

HERE IN NEW YORK CITY, EXPECTING

STORM SURGE OF FOUR TO EIGHT

FEET.

EVEN THE CITY'S SUBWAY STATIONS

HAVE BEEN BOARDED UP AND ORDERED

SHUT DOWN BY THE GOVERNOR.

IF YOU DON'T EVACUATE, YOU

ARE ENDANGERING THE LIVES OF OUR

FIRST RESPONDERS.

HARD LESSONS LEARNED FROM

HURRICANE IRENE, MANY NEW

YORKERS ARE TAKING THIS STORM

SERIOUSLY.

WE WENT TO READYFOOD.GOV.

I DON'T KNOW IF I HAVE ENOUGH

SUPPLIES FOR A WEEK. BRING

IT ON, HURRICANE SANDY.

DESPITE DARKENING SKIES AND

WARNINGS TO GET READY FOR THE

STORM, THIS COUPLE PRESSED AHEAD

WITH THEIR WEDDING PLANS. WE

ARE PACKING UP EVACUATED FROM

THE HOTEL AS WE ARE HEADING TO

THE VENUE SPOT.

WE DON'T KNOW IF IT IS A

HURRICANE OR STORM.

WE KNOW STORM.

IT IS A HURRICANE.

LISA IS HER NAME.

SANDY.

SANDY, OKAY.

THAT IS BETTER.

MEANWHILE, SANDY IS SURE TO

LEAVE A LASTING MARK ON THE CITY

THAT NEVER SLEEPS.

WORST OF SANDY'S WRATH IS

EXPECTED ALONG THE NEW YORK-NEW

JERSEY COAST.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

REPORTER: CBN SPOKE WITH ADAM

VICTOR.

HE EXPLAINED HOW CATASTROPHIC

SANDY COULD BE TO NEW YORK

CITY'S ELECTRICAL GRID. THE

FINANCIAL MARKETS, MUCH OF THE

SUBWAY SYSTEMS, ALL COME THROUGH

THIS FACILITY.

500 FEET BEHIND ME, YOU ARE ON

THE EAST RIVER AND ONLY 15 FEET

ABOVE THE WATER LEVEL.

THIS IS EQUIPMENT YOU CAN'T GO

AND REPLACE EASILY.

IT IS CUSTOM MADE EQUIPMENT AND

COULD TAKE WEEKS IF NOT MONTHS

TO GET THE GRID UP AND RUNNING.

WITHOUT THE GRID, YOU DON'T HAVE

THE STOCK EXCHANGE, YOU DON'T

HAVE THE FINANCIAL MARKETS.

IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO SAY WE'LL

MOVE THE COMPUTERS, WE HAVE BACK

UP COMPUTERS OUTSIDE THE CITY.

YOU HAVE A MILLION PEOPLE

WORKING THE FINANCIAL MARKETS,

HOW ARE YOU GOING TO MOVE THESE

PEOPLE TO ALTERNATE PLACES ON A

DAY'S NOTICE TO LOS ANGELES OR

OTHER FINANCIAL CAPITOLS OF THE

WORLD?

COAST GUARD RESCUED 14 PEOPLE

OFF THE OUTER BANKS OF NORTH

CAROLINA.

TWO CREW MEMBERS MISSING.

THREE MASTED SHIP IS A

RECREATION FOR BUILT FOR THE

1962 MOVIE "MUTINY."

THE CREW TRIED TO SAIL AROUND

THE STORM.

THEY BEGAN TAKING ON WATER IN

18-FOOT SEAS.

THEY CONTACTED THE U.S. COAST

GUARD.

SANDY HITTING BATTLEGROUND

STATES OF NORTH CAROLINA, HO NEW

HAMPSHIRE, AND OHIO.

PRESIDENT ASKED AMERICANS TO

PULL TOGETHER AND HELP ONE

ANOTHER TO CHECK ON NEIGHBORS,

FRIENDS AND ELDERLY AND PAUL

RYAN ASKED AMERICANS TO PRAY FOR

THOSE IN SANDY'S PATH.

THE STORM EFFECTS EARLY VOTING.

MANY POLLING STATIONS CLOSED

UNTIL THE STORM PASSES.

BOTH CANDIDATES SAY AMERICANS

WILL CHOOSE BETWEEN TWO VISIONS.

THAT WAS REGENT UNIVERSITY'S

CLASH OF THE TITANS ANNIVERSARY.

REPORTER: POLITICAL HEAVY

WEIGHTS FORMER CLINTON WHITE

HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY DIDI MYERS

AND EDWIN DALE.

ALSO RICK SANTORUM AND

MISSISSIPPI GOVERNOR HALEY

BARBER.

STEVE KROFT MODERATED THE DEBATE

WHICH TACKLED THE ECONOMY.

DEBATERS TALKED ABOUT ABORTION,

FOREIGN POLICY AND TAXES.

BOTTOM LINE IS TWO PARTIES AND

TWO COMPETING VISIONS FOR

AMERICA.

REPUBLICANS VISION.

IT IS OUR FOUNDER'S VISION.

A VISION OF A COUNTRY THAT

BELIEVES RIGHTS COME TO PEOPLE

FROM GOD.

ROLE OF THE GOVERNMENT IS

LIMITED TO PROTECTING THOSE

RIGHTS.

DEMOCRAT'S VISION.

GOVERNMENT DOES HAVE A ROLE

IN MOTIVATING AND INSTIGATING

THE CHANGE.

THAT IT CAN THROUGH INVESTMENTS

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

IT CAN CREATE OPPORTUNITY FOR

PEOPLE THAT DON'T HAVE ANY.

THE SHARPLY DIVIDED DIVISIONS

ARE IN POLL NUMBERS.

LATEST RASMUSSEN SURVEY HAS MITT

ROMNEY AT 50% TO BARACK OBAMA'S

48

48%.

IT IS CLOSE.

ANY TIME THERE IS MOVEMENT AND

THE MOVEMENT CLOSES THE GAP, WE

HAVE TO BE WEARY. CLASH OF

TITANS AUDIENCE MEMBERS MADE IT

CLEAR, THEY WANT TO SEE MORE

UNITY.

AT 25, THIS WOMAN IS A NEW

AMERICAN CITIZEN VOTING FOR THE

FIRST TIME.

FROM IF TOP DOWN, AMERICANS

NEED TO GET AWAY FROM THE PARTY

AND GET TOGETHER FOR AMERICA.

HOW REFRESHING IS THAT?

THAT IS A CRITICAL ISSUE.

THAT IS WHY JUSTIN COOK CAME

IN AND THAT IS HOW HE IS GOING

TO VOTE.

COMING IN I WAS INDEPENDENT

AND GOING OUT UNFORTUNATELY

STILL INDEPENDENT.

COMING UP, FOUR WINS IN A

ROW.

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS MAKE WORLD

SERIES HISTORY.

MORE ON THE CELEBRATION AND

UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE FROM THE

PLAYERS AFTER THIS.

CBN'S SPORTS REPORTER SEAN

BROWN TALKED WITH SEVERAL

PLAYERS SAID WINNING OR LOSING

IS SECONDARY TO WHAT COUNTS IN

LIFE.

JESUS CHRIST CHANGED MY LIFE

NOT JUST IN BASEBALL, BUT LIFE

IN GENERAL.

HE IS MY ROCK. GIANT'S

PITCHER MADISON PITCHING FOR

SEVEN INNINGS WITHOUT A SCORE.

BECOMING A CHAMPION IS GREAT BUT

PALES IN COMPARISON TO HAVING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.

YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN THE

WORLD SERIES, NOTHING THAT

COMPARES TO HAVING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD.

NO QUESTION I WOULDN'T BE WHERE

I AM WITHOUT HIM. RYAN F

FOGELSONG'S CAREER HAS BEEN A

WORLD WIN.

HE MADE HIS WAY BACK TO THE

GIANTS AND PLAYING WITH HIS

FIRST WORLD SERIES.

HE GIVES GOD ALL THE GLORY FOR

HIS SUCCESS.

I DEFINITELY FEEL LIKE

EVERYTHING I HAVE BEEN THROUGH

IN MY CAREER HAS BEEN HIS PLAN.

SOMETIMES HIS PLAN IS HARD TO

SEE WHEN THINGS AREN'T GOING

YOUR WAY.

IF YOU KEEP PRAISING HIM HE IS

GOING TO BRING YOU OUT ON THE

OTHER SIDE.

HE BROUGHT ME THROUGH IN A

SPECIAL WAY.

I FEEL LIKE HE WAS PREPARING ME

FOR THIS MOMENT.

I HAVE BEEN CALM AND COLLECTED

THIS WHOLE TIME.

I FEEL HE IS WITH ME. LIKE

MADISON BUMGARTNER,THIS IS HIS

11 SERIES.

HE FOUND THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY

TO TRULY HAVE PEACE IN YOUR

LIFE.

IT IS NOT A WORLD SERIES

CHAMPIONSHIP.

I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS

THAT IS PRESSED UPON ME IS CAST

ALL YOUR ANXIETIES UPON HIM,

DON'T BE ANXIOUS.

HE IS THE KING OF KINGS, MAN.

WHEN IT COMES TO JESUS, I SEE A

LOT OF BALLPLAYERS SEEING A LOT

OF MONEY AND THEY ARE NOT

PEACEFUL.

THERE IS SOMETHING MISSING.

FOR ME, I LIKE TO COME AT GUYS,

YOU CAN HAVE EVERYTHING IN THE

WORLD, MAN, MONEY, FAME, WOMEN,

CARS, BOATS, HOUSES, WHATEVER

YOU WANT.

IT IS NOT GOING TO BE

FULFILLING.

JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN

FULFILL YOU.

JESUS LOVES YOU NO MATTER WHAT.

WHAT HE GIVES ME IS A GIFT TO DO

THINGS FOR HIM, NOT FOR MYSELF.

THAT IS MY FORM OF WORSHIP.

I WORSHIP WITH EVERYTHING I HAVE

GOT.

I CAN'T SING OR DANCE LIKE

DAVID.

FOR ME MY WORSHIP IS TO THROW A

LOT OF STRIKES.

IF I WORSHIP HIM, I DON'T WORRY

ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE.

UP NEXT, JOHNNY ERICKSON TATA

TALKS ABOUT HER LATEST LIFE AND

DEATH CHALLENGE WITH CRITICAL

ADVICE TO ALL WOMEN.

WELCOME BACK.

JOHNNY ERICKSON TATA SHOWS US

HOW HER FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST

HAS HELPED HER.

SHE IS NOW FACING BREAST CANCER.

SHE IS FACING IT HEAD ON AND

INSPIRING MORE PEOPLE.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS HER STORY.

JONI IS ONE OF THE LEADING

CHRISTIAN ADVOCATES.

A DIVING ACCIDENT AT THE AGE OF

17 PARALYZED HER FROM THE NECK

DOWN.

TWO YEARS AGO HER LIFE TOOK

ANOTHER UNEXPECTED TURN.

DOCTORS DIAGNOSED HER WITH STAGE

THREE BREAST CANCER.

BECAUSE OF MY QUAD MREEJ YA,

DANCER NEVER ENTERED MY

THINKING.

ALWAYS SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED

TO OTHER WOMEN.

NOT ME.

IT WAS A SHOCK, IT WAS STUNNING.

LITTLE DID I REALIZE I WAS

FALLING INTO A STATISTIC THAT

ONE OUT OF EVERY WEIGHT WOMEN

WILL GET BREAST CANCER.

I JUST HAPPEN TO BE IN THAT

BREAST CANCER.

IT BEGAN WHEN JONI DISCOVERED

SOMETHING DIFFERENT IN THE SHAPE

OF HER BREASTS, A SUSPICIOUS

THREE-INCH MASS.

SHE DECIDED TO DOCUMENT HER

STORY.

I REMEMBER THINKING OH GOD,

GIVE ME A BREAK, FOUR DECADES IN

A WHEELCHAIR, DON'T I GET A

LITTLE REPRIEVE HERE?

DON'T I GET TIME OFF?

FURTHER TESTING CONFIRM

CANCER.

SHE HAD TO HAVE A MASTECTOMY.

MY GOD BY IMAGE IS PRETTY

POOR WITH QUAD MREEJ YA.

IT MADE ME FRIGHTENED.

I AM MARRIED.

MY HUSBAND OF 30 YEARS, WHAT

WILL HE THINK?

HOW WILL HE REACT?

WHAT WILL HE SAY?

A QUESTION IS WHAT IF I HAD

KNOWN SOONER?

IT HAD BEEN NINE YEARS SINCE HER

LAST BREAST EXAM.

HAD I HAVE AN ANNUAL

MAMMOGRAM WE MIGHT HAVE CAUGHT

IT.

PERHAPS IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN STAGE

ONE ON TWO.

AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY

RECOMMENDS WOMEN 20-39 UNDERGO A

CLINICAL BREAST EXAM EVERY THREE

YEARS, WOMEN 40 AND OLDER NEED

ONE EVERY YEAR AND ALSO AN

ANNUAL MAMMOGRAM.

JONI'S LUNGS ARE FRAGILE AND

BONES THIN.

SHE DECIDED TO STOP

CHEMOTHERAPY.

MY LIFE IS A MATTER OF

BALANCING COMPETING RISKS.

WHAT IS GOING TO ENABLE ME TO

LIVE THE LONGEST?

THERE IS A RISK MY CANCER MAY

RETURN.

AS A QUADRIPLEGIC, I WOULD

RATHER BE ABLE TO SIT UP IN A

WHEELCHAIR AND BREATHE AND

STRENGTH AND STAMINA TO FACE MY

DAYS AS I DO.

JONI KEPT HER THOUGHTS

FOCUSSED ON THE LORD, NOT THE

CANCER.

I BEGAN TO SEE CANCER

WOULDN'T WIN IF I DIE.

CANCER WOULD ONLY WIN IF I

FAILED TO CHERISH JESUS CHRIST.

WITH THAT ATTITUDE I WAS ABLE TO

LIVE IN THE PRESENT, NOT WALLOW

IN THE PAST, NOT BE FILLED WITH

THOUGHTS OF REGRET, WHY DIDN'T I

GET A MAMMOGRAM?

IF ONLY.

I THINK THERE IS SPECIAL JOY AND

COURAGE IN LIVING IN THE MOMENT.

LIVE RIGHT NOW. TODAY JONI

IS HAPPY AND HEALTHY FOR THE

MOST PART.

IN THE MEANTIME, SHE IS THANKFUL

TO BE A LIVING TESTIMONY TO

GOD'S FAITHFULNESS.

WHEN PEOPLE SEE US SMILE IN

THE MIDST OF CHRONIC PAIN,

CANCER, QUAD MREEJ YA, WHATEVER.

THEY LOOK AT US TO THINK HER GOD

MUST BE GREAT IN THE MIDST OF

HER AFFLICTION.

I WANT WHAT SHE HAS.

I NEED HER JOY.

WHAT A RICH TESTIMONY THAT IS.
