NEW YORK IS STILL REELING

AFTER TAKING A 1-2 PUNCH BY

SUPERSTORM SANDY, AND THEN

FOLLOWED BY A NOR'EASTER.

AS TODAY BEGINS, MORE THAN

500 PEOPLE REMAIN WITHOUT

POWER IN NEW YORK AND NEW

JERSEY.

Kristi: BUT THE BIG

APPLE, GORDON IS DEALING

WITH ANOTHER PROBLEM.

HEATHER CELLS REPORTS ON GAS

RATIONING.

Reporter: GAS SHORTAGES

IN SANDY'S AFTERMATH HAVE

IMMOBILIZED MANY, AND LED TO

LONG LINES AT THE PUMP.

NOW NEW YORK CITY AND LONG

IL I'LL ARE FOLLOWING NEW

JERSEY -- LONG ISLAND ARE

FOLLOWING NEW JERSEY'S

LEAD.

THEY'RE RATIONING GAS.

ALLOWING COSTUMERS WITH

ODD-NUMBERED LICENSE PLATES

TO FILL UP ON ODD DAYS, AND

CONSUMERS WITH EVEN NUMBERS

TO FILL UP ON EVEN DAYS.

THE WIRES SPARK.

EVERY DAY THEY SPARK FROM

SOMEWHERE ELSE.

Reporter: THE SECOND

NOR'EASTER BLANKETED THE

REGION WITH SNOW AND PLUNGED

SOME BACK INTO DARKNESS.

IT WAS GREAT TO HAVE IT.

AND THEN WE LOSE IT AGAIN.

IT WAS EXTREMELY

FRUSTRATING.

Reporter: AND IT IS HAM

HAMPERING THE NATION'S AIR

TRAVEL.

ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY,

THE AIRLINES CANCELLED

ALMOST 2,000 FLIGHTS.

NON-PROFIT EFFORTS ARE

HELPING IN MYSTIC ISLAND,

NEW JERSEY, AND MYSTIC

POINT, NEW YORK.

WE'RE GOING TO HELP

PEOPLE PUT THEIR LIVES BACK

TOGETHER.

THIS IS A COMMUNITY THAT

SURE DOES DESERVE EVERYONE'S

PRAYERS AND ALL OF OUR HOPE

AND ALL OF OUR HELP.

WE'RE GOING TO BE HERE

WORKING FOR QUITE SOMETIME.

Reporter: THE DAMAGE

ESTIMATE FOR SANDY RIGHT

NOW, UP TO $50 BILLION.

THAT'S THE SECOND MOST

EXPENSIVE STORM IN U.S.

HISTORY, RIGHT BEHIND

HURRICAN HURRICANE

KATRINA.

ACCORDING TO SOME REPORTS,

BEFORE THEY GET POWER BACK.

THAT IS WELL PAST

THANKSGIVING.

WE NEED TO STEP UP OUR HELP

TO HELP THOSE IN NEED.

WHILE THE NORTHEAST

STRUGGLES TO RECOVER FROM

STORMS, ANOTHER GROUP OF

AMERICANS IS WORKING TO HELP

THOSE WHO SERVE IN OUR

MILITARY.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY.

Lee: VETERANS' DAY IS

THIS SUNDAY.

THE HOLIDAY TAKES ON GREATER

SIGNIFICANCE EVERY YEAR

BECAUSE WE LOSE MORE THAN

800 WORLD WAR II VETS EACH

DAY.

AND OUR YOUNGER GENERATION

REMAINS ON THE BATTLEFIELD

IN AFGHANISTAN.

ONE GROUP WANTS TO START A

NEW TRADITION THIS VETERANS'

DAY.

PAUL STRAND HAS THEIR

STORY.

Reporter: TERRY

BELIEVES AMERICA'S MILITARY

DOES AND HAS DONE SO MUCH

FOR THE COUNTRY, EVERY

AMERICA NEEDS TO ACKNOWLEDGE

THEM THIS COMING SUNDAY.

AT NOONTIME, NO MATTER

WHERE YOU ARE, TO BE IN

SILENCE, JUST FOR A MOMENT,

AND TO SHOW GRATITUDE AND

THANKSGIVING.

Reporter: SHE SAYS

THOSE WHO DEFEND AND FIGHT

FOR AMERICA RICHLY DESERVE

THIS TIME OF SILENCE AND

PRAYER.

MOST OF OUR MILITARY

THINKS THAT WE'VE FORGOTTEN

THEM.

INSTEAD OF FORGETTING THEM,

NOT ONLY ARE WE THINKING

ABOUT THEM, BUT WE'RE GOING

TO BE PRAYING FOR THEM.

Reporter: HER FRONT

LINE FAITH IS WORKING

YEAR-ROUND FOR SERVICE

MEMBERS WHO IT HAS FOUND

STARVING FOR SPIRITUAL SUS

SUSTINANCE.

IT IS OVER SEVEN HOURS OF

RELIGIOUS CONTENT, AND THE

CHAPLAINS SAY THANK YOU FOR

BRINGING GOD TO OUR

SOLDIERS, AND OR SOLDIERS TO

GOD.

Reporter: WITH IT COSTK

COSTING ABOUT $24 A PEACE,

FRONTLINE IS FINDING HIS

NEEDS MUCH MORE SUPPORT IF

IT HOPES TO FILL THE NEEDS

OF THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS

OF TROOPS WANTING THEM.

Lee: MEANWHILE,

MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS

AROUND THE WORLD WILL UNITE

IN PRAYER FOR THE

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER

FOR THE PERSECUTED CHURCH.

IT IS A TIME FOR STANDING

FOR THOSE WHO SUFFER FOR

FOLLOWING CHRIST.

ATTACKS AGAINST CHRISTIANS

IN NATIONS LIKE EURO,

PAKISTAN, AND EGYPT ARE

INCREASING, AS GARY LANE

REPORTS, THOSE ARE NOT THE

WORST PLACES TO BE A

CHRISTIAN.

Reporter: CHRISTIANS

ARE UNDER INTENSE SITUATIONS

IN COUNTRIES.

BUT NORTH KOREA IS THE WORST

PERSECUTOR OF CHRISTIANS.

AFTER THE DEATH OF KIM

JONG-IL, HIS SONG AND

SUCCESSOR IS CONTINUING

EFFORTS TO RID THE NATION OF

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANS ARE ARRESTED,

IMPRISONED, AND EVEN

EXECUTED, SIMPLY FOR

BELIEVING IN A FAITH OTHER

THAN THE STATE RELIGION,

KNOWN AS SELF-RELIANCE.

WE PROTECTED THIS CHRISTIAN

BY HIDING HIS FACE AND

CALLING HIM BY A DIFFERENT

NAME.

MR. BAY WAS IN PRISON FOR

HELPING A FRIEND.

THERE WAS WERE

INTERROGATIONS AND TORTURE,

BUT THE HARDEST THING WAS

SITTING STILL ON THE FLOOR

WITHOUT MOVING MY ARMS,

LEGS, MORE THAN A YEAR.

Reporter: HE SAYS GOD,

NOT MAN, DELIVERED HIM FROM

DEATH.

HE TOLD HIS STORY TO THE

C.I.A. OF SEOUL U.S.A.

IT IS DETAILED IN THE NEW

BOOK, "THESE ARE THE

GENERATIONS."

THE SAME KINDS OF THINGS

FROM NORTH KOREAN DEFECTORS

FOR 10 YEARS, BUT IT WAS

VERY HARD TO FIND SOMEONE

WILLING TO SPOKE ABOUT THESE

THINGS ON THE RECORD.

BUT FOR MR. BAY, HE SPOKE

OPENLY, BECAUSE HIS MOTHER

AND FATHER, WHO ARE IN A

CONCENTRATION CAMP, PREPARED

THEIR WHOLE LIVES THAT

LIKELY THAT'S WHERE THEY

WOULD END UP.

Reporter: AND HOW

SHOULD NORTH AMERICANS PRAY

FOR NORTH KOREA?

MR. BAY TALKS ABOUT THE

KIND OF PERSECUTION WE FACE

IN THE WEST, WHICH IS THE

PERSECUTION OF PROSPERITY.

EVERY DAY PROSPERITY EN

ENABLES US NOT TO DENY

OURSELVES, BUT TO DENY THE

CROSS BECAUSE OUR RELIGION

BRINGS US COMFORT.

HE SAYS, PRAY THAT WE WILL

EACH BE FOUND FAITHFUL TO

OVERCOME THE PERSECUTION

UNDER WHICH WE EXIST IN

ORDER TO REPRESENT AND

WITNESS TO THE GOODNESS OF

THE LORD FAITHFULLY.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Lee: WOW!

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF

PRAYER FOR THE PERSECUTED

CHURCH BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

WE SPOKE TO ERIC FOLEY TO

HEAR THE NORTHERN KOREANS

PRAY THAT GOD WOULD NOT

NECESSARILY MOVE THEM FROM

THE SITUATION THEY'RE IN,

BUT THAT GOD WOULD CAUSE

THEM TO BE FAITHFUL WHERE

THEY ARE.

IT IS A VERY POWERFUL

PRAYER.

Gordon: IT IS A VERY

POWERFUL PRAYER.

IT IS LINE WITHIN APOSTLE 4,

WHERE THE SANHIDRIN

PROHIBITED THEM FROM

PREACHING THE GOSPEL.

THEY ASKED FOR BOLDNESS TO

PREACH THE GOSPEL.

THAT SIGNS AND WONDERS WOULD

FOLLOW, AND GOD WOULD

STRETCH FORTH HIS HAND AND

PERFORM MIRACLES SO THAT THE

GOSPEL WOULD GO FORTH.

THIS SIEWFLTD, PRA SUNDAY,

PRAY FOR THE PERCENTS

PERSECUTED CHURCH.

THERE ARE SO MANY COUNTRIES

WHERE IT IS RESTRICTED.

THEY'RE NOT EVEN ALLOW TO

MEET TOGETHER AND PRAY.

IN SOME COUNTRIES, IT IS

ILLEGAL TO POSSESS A BIBLE.

WE NEED TO LIFT THEM UP IN

PRAYER.

AT THE SAME TIME, RECOGNIZE

THEY'RE PRAYING FOR US.

YEARS AGO, I WAS WITH A

GROUP OF PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS IN A RESTRICTED

COUNTRY.

AND I WANTED TO PRAY FOR

THEM.

THEY STOPPED ME.

THEY SAID, DON'T PRAY FOR

US.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR THE

CHRISTIANS IN AMERICA, THAT

THE CARES AND THE CONCERNS

OF THIS WORLD WOULD NOT

CHOKE THE WORD AND MAKE IT

UNFRUITFUL.

RECOGNIZE THEY'RE PRYING FOR

US JUST AS WE'RE PRAYING FOR

THEM.

Kristi: THAT WAS

BEAUTIFUL.

YOU CAN'T HELP BUT WATCH

THOSE STORIES AND REMIND

OURSELVES THE IMPORTANCE AND

GRATITUDE OF RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM WE HAVE HERE IN

AMERICA.

Consuelo: AN AMERICA.

Gordon: AND UNDERSTAND

WE NEED TO PREACH THE GOSPEL

WITH BOLDNESS.

ANGLICAN CHRISTIANS HAVE A

NEW SPIRITUAL LEADER TODAY.

STAY TUNED, GORDON AND

KRISTI WILL BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB" AFTER

THIS.

Kristi: THE RED BIRD,

IT'S NOT A MIGRATING BIRD.

IT IS CONSISTENT AND

CONSTANT.

AND IT IS ALSO THE TITLE OF

A NEW C.D. BY AN ARTIST WHO

IS BEST-KNOWN NO FOR HIS

SONG, "LOVE IS NOT A

FIGHT."

Reporter: WARREN

BARFIELD STARTED PLAYING THE

GUITAR WHEN HE WAS 15.

IN COLLEGE, HE WAS MORE

INTERESTED IN BOOKING HIS

OWN CONCERTS THAN GOING TO

CLASS.

IN 1995, WITH HIS PARENTS'

BLESSING, WARREN LEFT SCHOOL

FOR A YEAR.

AFTER 200,000 MILES AND 600

GIGS, HE SETTLED IN NASH

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE.

SINCE THEN, HE RELEASED

THREE ALBUMS.

FIVE OF HIS SONGS HIT THE

TOP CHRISTIAN CHARTS.

HIS SONG "LOVE IS NOT A

FIGHT," GOT NEARLY A MILLION

HITS.

HE SHOWCASES HIS VOICE AND

TALENT, BOTH OF WHICH HAVE

MADE HIM ONE OF THE MOST

POPULAR CHRISTIAN ARTISTS IN

MUSIC TODAY.

Kristi: WE'RE NOT GOING

TO MAKE YOU WAIT ANY

LONGER.

HERE IS WARREN BARFIELD

SINGING A SONG INSPIRED BY

HIS REAL LIFE LOVE, HIS WIFE

MEGAN.

THIS SONG IS CALLED "THE

RIGHT TIME."

[APPLAUSE]

*

* I WAS SITTIN' IN THE

KITCHEN, MY MAMA DOING

DISHES *

* I WAS THINKING OUT LOUD

* SHE WAS JUST LISTENING

ABOUT A NEW GIRL AND MY

WORLD *

* I LOVED HER

* BUT THAT'S REALLY ALL I

HAD TO OFFER *

* AND MAMA SAID, SON, YOU

CAN'T PASS UP A GOOD

THING *

* IF YOU'RE WAITING FOR THE

RIGHT TIME *

* THE RIGHT TIME WILL FLY

RIGHT BY YOU *

* ALWAYS PLANNING, NEVER

MOVING *

* ALWAYS PRAYING, NEVER

DOING *

* IT AIN'T LIVING

* YOU'RE JUST SPENDING YOUR

LIFE *

* WAITIN' FOR THE RIGHT

TIME *

* JUST A FEW YEARS LATER,

WITH MY RING ON HER

FINGER *

* WE WERE BARELY GETTING BY

ON A DREAM AND A PRAYER *

* A FEW THINGS.

*

* SPACE IN OUR LIVES FOR A

LITTLE ONE *

* SO WHEN WE GOT THE NEWS

* IT WAS LIKE GOD SAYING I

KNEW BETTER THAN TO WAIT ON

YOU *

* IF YOU'RE WAITING FOR THE

RIGHT TIME *

* THE RIGHT TIME WILL FLY

RIGHT BY *

* ALWAYS PLANNING, NEVER

MOVING *

* ALWAYS PRAYING, NEVER

DOING *

* IT AIN'T LIVING IF YOU'RE

JUST SPENDING YOUR LIFE *

WAITING FOR THE RIGHT

TIME *

* AND I'VE LEARNED THE

UNKNOWN *

* AIN'T AS SCARY AS YOU

THINK *

* AND THE BEST THINGS DON'T

ALWAYS HANG AROUND FOR THOSE

WHO WAIT *

* SO IF YOU'RE WAITING FOR

YOUR RIGHT TIME *

* THE RIGHT TIME, IT WILL

FLY RIGHT BY YOU *

*

ALWAYS PRAYING, BUT YOU'RE

[APPLAUSE]

Kristi: OH, WARREN,

THAT WAS WONDERFUL.

THANK YOU.

Kristi: THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

IT IS NICE MEETING YOU, BY

THE WAY.

I WAS BACK THERE LISTENING

TO THE LYRICS, THINKING

ABOUT THE RIGHT TIME.

AS CHRISTIANS, WE'RE ALWAYS

WAITING FOR GOD TO MOVE, FOR

THAT RIGHT TIME, FOR HIM TO

GIVE US THE GREEN LIGHT.

SOMETHING MY MOM ALWAYS

SAID, KRISTI, A LOT OF TIMES

WE SIT AND WAIT, GOD, SHOULD

WE?

MY MOM SAID IT IS NOT ABOUT

WAITING FOR THE GREEN LIGHT,

BUT GO UNTIL GOD SAYS STOP.

AND MY MOM SAYS, WE'RE

ALWAYS PLANNING BUT WE NEVER

ACTUALLY MOVE.

AND WE'RE ALWAYS PRAYING,

BUT WE'RE NEVER ACTUALLY

DOING.

AND I THINK THERE IS

SOMETHING TO BE STEPPING OUT

IN FAITH.

MY MOM GAVE ME THAT ADVICE

AS A KID AND IT HAS ALWAYS

STUCK WITH ME THROUGH LIFE.

Kristi: I LOVE THAT.

THAT HAS BEEN A PERTINENT

ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE.

I READ YOU WERE IN COLLEGE,

AND YOU WERE PLANNING MUSIC

MORE THAN YOUR CLASSES --

I'M NOT TELLING ON YOU,

WARREN.

IT'S COMMON KNOWLEDGE.

MY PARENTS KNEW.

Kristi: HOW DID FAITH

PLAY A PART IN THAT?

MY DAD IS A PASTOR, AND

MY DAD WOULD LEAVE A TOWN

AND MOVE OUR FAMILY TO A

WHOLE OTHER PLACE TO LIVE

BECAUSE HE BELIEVED GOD

CALLED HIM.

AND WHEN I CAME TO MY

PARENTS AND I SAID, I

BELIEVE THAT GOD IS CALLING

ME TO DO THIS.

THEY DIDN'T GO, MAYBE YOU

SHOULD GET SOME SAFETY

FIRST.

THEY WERE LIKE, IF YOU FEEL

GOD IS CALLING YOU, YOU YOU

SHOULD GO.

AND MEETING MY WIFE, AND

THIS WORKED OUT.

YES, WE TOOK A STEP, NOT

KNOWING HOW IT WOULD HAPPEN,

AND GOD PROVIDED FOR US.

WE HAVE TWO CHILDREN NOW, A

BOY NAMED MONTGOMERY AND A

GIRL NAMED ADA BETH.

AND YOU'RE LIKE, ARE WE

READY?

YOU HAVE TO JUST GO AND

BELIEVE THAT GOD IS CAPABLE

AND ABLE.

Kristi: I LOVE IT.

I'M ALMOST CURIOUS WHEN

PEOPLE WRITE ALBUMS AND PUT

THEM TOGETHER, HOW DO THEY

NAME THEM?

WHERE DID RED BIRD COME

FROM?

I WRITE ABOUT MY FAMILY,

AND AS I'M LEARNING, AS A

HUSBAND AND A DAD.

I PUT MY KIDS TO BED EVERY

NIGHT WHEN I'M HOME, AND WE

SAY OUR PRAYERS AND SING

SONGS.

WE ALWAYS SING THREE SONGS.

I WANTED TO WRITE A SONG FOR

THEM.

SO I SAT DOWN WITH A GUITAR,

AFTER PUTTING THEM TO BED

ONE NIGHT, AND STARTED

WRITING THIS LULLABY, AND

WANTED TO SAY, I'M ALWAYS

GOING TO BE HERE FOR YOU.

AND THE RED BIRD WAS SORT OF

THE IMAGE I KI CAME UP WITH

THE RED BIRD DOESN'T

MIGRATE.

WHEN OTHER BIRDS ARE LEAVING

FOR COLD WEATHER, THE RED

BIRD STAYS.

WHEN THINGS GET TOUGH, I'M

GOING TO BE HERE FOR YOU.

I'M NOT LEAVING TO FIND

COMFORT.

AS I LOOKED INTO IT MORE, I

FOUND OUT THAT THE RED BIRD

IS A MONOGMOUS BIRD.

AND I THOUGHT IT IS A GREAT

ANALOGY.

I WANT TO BE THERE FOR MY

WIFE, AND I WANT TO BE THE

RED BIRD FOR MY KIDS, AND

THEY CAN COUNT ON ME

ALWAYS.

Kristi: I LOVE THAT,

WARREN.

WARREN'S NEW C.D. IS CALLED

"RED BIRD" AND IT'S

AVAILABLE ON iTUNES.

TO GET A COPY, ALL YOU HAVE

TO DO IS LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

THE THING I'M EXCITED ABOUT

IS YOU'RE GOING TO PLAY US

TO BREAK.

SING US A SONG AND TELL US

MORE ABOUT THE RED BIRD,

WARREN.

I WILL.

THANK YOU.

* YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

* IN YOUR TIME OF TROUBLE

* I'LL BE THERE

Lee: STILL AHEAD, SHE

WAS 20 YEARS OLD.x

I HAD TRACK MARKS

LITERALLY FROM MY FEET TO MY

NECK.

Lee: IN JAIL AND

PREGNANT.

I DON'T WANT TO HAVE MY

BABY HERE.

Lee: HOW THIS YOUNG

MOTHER BEAT THE ODDS.

I'VE BEEN SET FREE.

*

Gordon: WELL, THE

UNITED STATES ICON, UNCLE

SAM, HAS LONG BEEN

ASSOCIATED WITH RECRUITING

FOR THE MILITARY.

BUT THE UNCLE SAM YOU'RE

ABOUT TO MEET IS INTO A

DIFFERENT KIND OF

RECRUITMENT.

Reporter: TERRY HORN,

KNOWN AS UNCLE SAM, AND HIS

WIFE CYNTHIA, HAVE BEEN

TEACHING KIDS ABOUT THE

BIBLE FOR OVER 40 YEARS.

THEY TAKE THEIR MOBILE

CHURCH, CALLED THE

CHURCHCAM, TO

NEIGHBORHOODS.

I DRESS IN THIS CRAZY

COSTUME, BUT I LOVE YOU AND

LOVE YOUR KIDS.

Reporter: THEY USE VAN

TRIL VAN TRILLTRILOQUISEM

AND TOYS.

EVERYTHING THAT WE TRY TO

DO WITH THE KIDS FROM THE

GOSPEL AND TEACHING THEM THE

WORD BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW

THE WORD, WHEN THEY SEE IT

ON "SUPERBOOK," THEY

CONNECT.

I CAN'T BRAG ENOUGH ABOUT

"SUPERBOOK."

MY KIDS GREW UP ON

"SUPERBOOK," THE V.H.S.

VERSION, BUT THIS VERSION

BLOWS THAT VERSION OUT OF

THE WATER.

THE CHARACTERS ARE RIGHT ON

WITH WHAT THEY'RE SAYING IN

THE SCRIPT, IT'S BIBLE.

Reporter: AND THE KIDS

OF JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA,

LOVE "SUPERBOOK."

WE HAVE 13-YEAR-OLDS AND

14-YEAR-OLDS, WHO ASK ME,

WHEN THEY SEE ME, UNCLE SAM,

THE NEXT TIME YOU SHOW A

MOVIE, CAN IT BE

"SUPERBOOK"?

ABSOLUTELY.

MY FAVORITE PART WAS WHEN

DANIEL PRAYED TO GOD SO THE

LIONS WOULDN'T EAT HIM.

I LEARNED TO LISTEN AND

NOT DISOBEY.

MY FAVORITE PART OF

"SUPERBOOK" IS WHEN THE KING

HAD TO FREE THE ISRAELITES.

Gordon: CHILDREN LOVE

"SUPERBOOK," AND WE WANT TO

GET THEM EVEN MORE

EPISODES.

OUR GOAL IS OVER THE NEXT

FIVE YEARS, 300 MILLION

CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD TO

SEE THE "SUPERBOOK" SERIES.

SO WE'RE GOING TO START NEXT

YEAR BROADCASTING.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF

FINISHING UP THE FIRST 13

EPISODES, SO WE HAVE A

TELEVISION SEASON THAT WILL

GO OUT.

AND THEN WE'LL TRANSLATE IT

INTO 38 LANGUAGES SO THE

CHILDREN OF THE WORLD WILL

GET IT.

WE'RE HOPING TO LAUNCH, I

BELIEVE, IN MARCH, IN THE

PHILIPPINES.

SO WHAT WE'RE ASKING FOR IS

FOR YOU TO HELP WITH THE

PRODUCTION COSTS.

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A PART OF IT.

AND FOR A GIFT OF $25, WE'LL

SEND YOU THE LATEST EPISODE,

WHICH IS JUST BEING

RELEASED, THE MIRACLES OF

JESUS.

IF YOU'RE PART OF THE

"SUPERBOOK" D.V.D. CLUB, IT

IS ALREADY ON ITS WAY TO

YOU.

IF YOU'RE NOT PART OF IT,

YOU CAN JOIN THAT AS WELL,

AND THAT WAY YOU'RE

AUTOMATICALLY GOING TO GET

EACH NEW EPISODE AS IT IS

RELEASED.

YOU WON'T JUST GET ONE

D.V.D.

YOU'LL GET ONE PLUS TWO MORE

THAT YOU CAN SHARE WITH

OTHERS.

YOU CAN SHARE WITH YOUR

CHURCH AND WITH MINISTRIES

TO CHILDREN.

WE WANT TO GET THE BIBLE

STORIES OUT FOR THE CHILDREN

TO UNDERSTAND.

WHEN THE BIBLE CHARACTERS

ARE TALKING, THEY'RE TALKING

VERSES FROM THE BIBLE.

WE WANT TO MAKE IT FUN.

WE WANT TO MAKE IT

ENTERTAINING.

BUT WE ALSO WANT TO BE VERY

SERIOUS ABOUT GETTING THE

GOSPEL OUT TO THE CHILDREN

OF THE WORLD.

SO IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART

OF IT, CALL US.

1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

ON THE "SUPERBOOK" PAGE, ON

THE GIVING PAGE, YOU CAN

ALSO GET CAUGHT UP.

WE HAVE EIGHT EPISODES THAT

HAVE ALREADY BEEN RELEASED.

"THE MIRACLES OF JESUS" IS

THE NINTH EPISODE.

WE'RE WELL ON OUR WAY TO THE

FIRST 13.

WE SHOULD HAVE THEM ALL BY

JANUARY.

IT WILL BE A GREAT YEAR NEXT

YEAR AS THIS GOES AROUND THE

WORLD.

Kristi: AND WHAT A

PHENOMENAL CHRISTMAS GIFT

THIS WILL BE.

Gordon: WAIT JUST A

LITTLE BIT BECAUSE IN JUST A

FEW WEEKS, WE'RE GOING TO BE

OFFERING A TWO-PACK, THE

LAST SUPPER PLUS THE FIRST

CHRISTMAS.

THAT WILL BE READY BY THE

END OF THIS MONTH.

Kristi: I LOVE IT.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE IT,

TOO.

MY SON LOVES IT, BY THE

WAY.

UP NEXT, A HARD-CORE DRUG

ADDICT MAKES AN AMAZING

COMEBACK.

IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW

HAS A DRUG PROBLEM, CALL

THEM UP RIGHT NOW BECAUSE

THEY DO NOT WANT TO MISS

IT.

Kristi: WELL, TODAY

SAMANTHA MOSLEY IS A

CONFIDENT YOUNG PROFESSIONAL

AND MOTHER.

AND THAT'S A MIRACLE.

WHY?

BECAUSE JUST A FEW YEARS

AGO, SAMANTHA WAS A DRUG

ADDICT, SERVING TIME IN

JAIL.

I HAD TRACK MARKS

LITERALLY FROM MY FEET TO MY

NECK.

I WAS COVERED.

IT WAS A QUICK, EASY HIGH.

AND IT WAS SOMETHING THAT I

COULD DO ANYWHERE.

IT CONSUMED EVERY PART OF MY

LIFE.

Reporter: SAMANTHA

MOSLEY STARTED USING DRUGS

WHEN SHE WAS 12 YEARS OLD AS

A WAY TO FIT IN.

BY THE TIME SHE WAS 18,

SAMANTHA WAS A HARD-CORE

DRUG ADDICT.

SHE RAN AWAY FROM HOME AND

GOT INVOLVED IN AN ABUSIVE

RELATIONSHIP WITH A MAN

TWICE HER AGE.

HE INTRODUCED ME TO

HARDER DRUGS, WHERE I BECAME

ADDICTED TO CRACK COCAINE.

I BEGAN DOING ANYTHING TO

FEED MY ADDICTION.

AND I ENDED UP GETTING

ARRESTED FOR POSSESSION OF

DRUGS.

Reporter: SAMANTHA WAS

SIX MONTHS PREGNANT AND HIGH

WHEN SHE WENT TO JAIL.

WHEN I WAS THERE, IT WAS

SUMMERTIME AND WAS HOT.

AND I DIDN'T WANT TO GO

OUTSIDE FOR RECREATION.

AND THE ALTERNATIVE WAS TO

GO TO A CHAPEL SERVICE.

WHEN I STARTED TO GO AND

HEAR ABOUT GOD AND JESUS AND

HIS FORGIVENESS AND HIS

LOVE, SOMETHING TOUCHED MY

HEART AND I KNEW THAT THERE

WAS SOMETHING GREATER.

AND I JUST STARTED PRAYING.

AND MY PRAYERS WERE SO

SIMPLE, BUT IT WAS, GOD, I

NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE.

I NEED TO DO SOMETHING

BETTER WITH MY LIFE FOR MY

CHILD.

I DON'T WANT TO HAVE MY BABY

HERE.

Reporter: SAMANTHA

REACHED OUT TO HER PARENTS

FOR HELP.

THEY STARTED LOOKING FOR

PROGRAMS, BUT EVERYWHERE

THEY FOUND SAID I COULD

COME, BUT ONCE I HAD MY BABY

I WOULD HAVE TO LEAVE.

I KNEW THAT WASN'T AN

OPTION.

I KNEW I NEEDED SOMEWHERE

THAT I COULD HAVE MY CHILD x

WITH ME.

Reporter: SAMANTHA'S

MOTHER LEARNED ABOUT NEW

LIFE HOME FOR WOMEN AND

CHILDREN, A REHABILITATION

PROGRAM SPONSORED IN PART BY

CBN.

THE PROGRAM ALLOWS MOTHERS

TO BRING THEIR CHILDREN AS

THEY GO THROUGH RECOVERY.

SHE GOT ALL OF THE

INFORMATION, AND SHE SENT IT

TO ME.

AND I JUST STARTED PRAYING.

I USED TO JUST SIT AND STARE

AT A PICTURE OF THE HOUSE

AND SAID, THIS IS WHERE I'M

GOING TO BE.

ONE DAY I KNEW IN MY HEART

THAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

Reporter: SAMANTHA WENT

DIRECTLY FROM JAIL TO THE

PROGRAM.

I WILL NEVER FORGET, I

PULLED UP TO THE FRONT OF

THE HOUSE.

WHEN I GOT OUT OF THE CAR,

THERE WERE TWO STAFF

STANDING OUTSIDE AND THEY

JUST EMBRACED ME.

IT WAS JUST THE MOST

INCREDIBLE FEELING BECAUSE

THEY JUST LOVED ME.

BACK THEN I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

IT WAS, BUT I KNOW IT WAS

THE LOVE OF CHRIST THAT

EMBRACED ME.

IT CONSUMED ME.

IT WAS THE SAME FEEL WITH

THE DRUGS, BUT IT WAS LOVE,

AND IT WAS SOMETHING I NEVER

EXPERIENCED BEFORE IN MY

LIFE.

Reporter: SAMANTHA GAVE

HER LIFE TO CHRIST.

AFTER HER DAUGHTER WAS

BORN, SHE STARTED PLANNING

FOR THE FUTURE.

I HAD MY G.E.D.

I NEVER WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL,

BUT I REALLY WANTED TO HELP

WOMEN.

AND I KNEW THROUGH THE

ENCOURAGEMENT AND GRACE AND

THE STAFF HERE, THAT GOING

BACK TO SCHOOL WOULD BE THE

BEST WAY TO ACHIEVE THOSE

GOALS.

Reporter: SAMANTHA

CHOSE TO ATTEND REGENT

UNIVERSITY'S ONLINE PROGRAM

TO GET HER BACHELOR'S DEGREE

IN COUNSELLING.

REGENT UNIVERSITY JUST

OFFERED ME THE OPPORTUNITY

TO BE ABLE TO GO TO SCHOOL

ONLINE, TO GET A DEGREE IN A

SECULAR DISCIPLINE OF

PSYCHOLOGY, WITH A CHRISTIAN

BASIS, AND BE ABLE TO TAKE

CARE OF MY DAUGHTER.

EVEN THOUGH I WAS AN ONLINE

STUDENT, I FELT LIKE I KNEW

MY TMPS AN TEACHERS AND I

COULD TALK TO THEM IF I HAD

AN ISSUE OR PROBLEM OR

NEEDED CLARIFICATION ON

SOMETHING.

I LOVED LEARNING PSYCHOLOGY

WITH A CHRISTIAN

FOUNDATION.

Reporter: SAMANTHA

GRADUATED WITH HONORS FROM

REGENT UNIVERSITY IN

MAY 2012.

TODAY SHE IS AN ACTIVE

MOTHER, BUT WORKS TO COUNSEL

OTHER WOMEN IN THE RECOVERY

PROGRAM AND NEW LIFE HOME.

I DON'T HAVE TO LIVE

UNDER THE STIGMA THAT I'LL

BE A DRUG ADDICT FOR THE

REST OF MY LIFE.

I'VE BEEN SET FREE.

I THINK WALKING IN THAT

TRUTH AND THE NEWNESS OF

LIFE IS WHAT CHANGES US, AND

KNOWING WE DON'T HAVE TO BE

THOSE PEOPLE FROM THE PAST.

THAT WE DO HAVE AN

OPPORTUNITY AND A SECOND

CHANCE AT LIFE THAT ONLY

COMES THROUGH CHRIST.

Kristi: I LOVE THAT.

YOU KNOW, GOD SAYS HE HAS

GIVEN US A HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

AND HE USES US AND DIFFERENT

PEOPLE TO PROVIDE THAT.

AND WHAT A WONDERFUL STORY

OF HOW YOU, REGENT

UNIVERSITY, AND PEOPLE

REALLY REACHED OUT TO HER.

WE HAVE MORE INFORMATION ON

NEW LIFE HOME FOR WOMEN AND

CHILDREN ON OUR WEBSITE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOG ON

TO CBN.COM.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW

MORE ABOUT REGENT

UNIVERSITY, DIAL THE NUMBER

ON YOUR SCREEN.

1-800-373-5504, OR YOU CAN

LOG ON TO REGENT.E.D.U..

Gordon: WHAT A

WONDERFUL STORY.

Kristi: IT IS LOVELY.

SPEAKING OF LOVELY, WE'VE

GOT A LOT OF QUESTIONS OUT

THERE.

SO WE'RE GOING TO JUMP RIGHT

IN.

ANITA SAYS, "MY FAMILY AND

FRIENDS ARE DEVASTATING

ABOUT THE RESULTS OF OUR

ELECTION.

I KNOW MORE PEOPLE WERE

PRAYING FOR MITT ROMNEY TO

BE ELECTED.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 2

CHRONICLES.

IF THE RESULT OF PRAYER

ISN'T GOD'S WILL, THEN WHY

BOTHER PRAYING?"

Consuelo:

Gordon: THE LORD'S

PRAYER IS THAT WE SHOULD

PRAY THAT GOD'S WILL WILL BE

DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN

HEAVEN.

THE REASON WE'RE ASKED TO

PRAY IS BECAUSE GOD'S WILL

IS NOT BEING DONE.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT IN THAT

LENS, YOU SHOULD BE

ENCOURAGED TO PRAY EVEN

MORE, AND ESPECIALLY FOR OUR

LEADERSHIP AND OUR

GOVERNMENT, REGARDLESS OF

WHO WON.

GOD IS NOT A REPUBLICAN AND

HE IS NOT A DEMOCRAT.

HE IS ABOVE ALL OF THAT.

IF WE WANT HIS BLESSINGS, WE

NEED TO PRAY IN HIS ACCORD

DANCE.

1 TIM 2: "THEREFORE I EXALT

FIRST OF ALL SUP

SUPPLECATIONS, AND PRAYERS

AND INTERCESSIONS BE GIVING

OF THANKS BUT MADE FROM ALL

MEN.

THAT WE MAY LEAD QUIET AND

PEACE OF A LIFE IN ALL

GODLINESS, FOR THIS IS THE

GOOD AND THE ACCEPTABLE IN

GOD OUR SAVIOR, WHO DESIRES

ALL MEN TO BE SAVED AND TO

COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE

TRUTH."

THAT SHOULD ENCOURAGE OUR

PRAYER LIFE.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU AND

ANYONE DISAPPOINTED IN THE

OUTCOME OF THE ELECTION,

PRAY FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA.

GIVE THANKS FOR HIM.

ASK GOD TO GIVE HIM WISDOM.

ASK GOD'S MERCY TO BE OVER

HIM.

IF WE DO THAT -- AND THERE

IS PLENTY OF PRECEDENT FOR

IT.

WHEN YOU GO BACK TO SAMUEL,

HE SAID, I WON'T SIN AND NOT

PRAY FOR YOU.

HE DIDN'T PICK PARTICULAR

PEOPLE IN ISRAEL TO PRAY FOR

AND NOT TO PRAY FOR.

HE PRAYED FOR ALL OF THEM

AND THAT GOD WOULD HAVE

MERCY ON ALL OF THEM.

WHY?

BECAUSE HE WANTED THEM

SAVED.

IF YOU UNDERSTAND IT IS

GOD'S WILL FOR ALL TO BE

SAVED, THAT WILL INFORM YOUR

PRAYER LIFE.

SO DON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

UNDERSTAND THAT GOD'S PLAN

AND PURPOSE IS STILL BEING

DONE.

AND WE'RE HIS AMBASSADORS,

AND WE'RE TO PRAY THAT HIS

WILL WILL BE

DONE ON EARTHS

IT IS IN HEAVY.

Kristi: FANTASTIC

ANSWER.

Gordon: PRAY FOR

OBAMA.

WE WERE DOING IT DURING THE

WHOLE TIME OF PRAYER UP TO

AND DURING THE ELECTION.

I PRAY FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA.

WE NEED TO PRAY FOUR HIM.

WE NEED TO PRAY FOR OUR

LEADERSHIP.

WE'RE FACING VERY DIFFICULT

TIMES, FROM AN ECONOMIC

STANDPOINT, FROM A TERRORISM

STANDPOINT, WHAT IS GOING ON

IN SYRIA, IRAN, AND ISRAEL.

WE NEED TO BE PRAYING.

Kristi: YOU'RE RIGHT.

AND WE NEED TO CAUTION

OURSELVES BECAUSE SO OFTEN

WE PUT OUR HOPE IN LEADERS

AND THE GOVERNMENT, WHEN WE

NEED TO REMEMBER THAT OUR

HOPE LIES IN THE LORD AND

THE LORD ALONE.

Gordon: MEN WILL ALWAYS

LET YOU DOWN.

THEY'LL MAKE MISTAKES.

LEADERS WILL LET YOU DOWN.

BUT WHEN YOU YOUR HOPE IN

HIM, YOU'RE IN A GOOD

PLACE.

Kristi: ABSOLUTELY.

IF I HAD A TAMBOURINE, I'D

BE SHAKING IT.

Gordon: CAN I GET A

WITNESS.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM 1 PETER 4: "ABOVE

ALL THINGS, HAVE FERVENT

LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER, FOR

LOVE WILL COVER A MULTITUDE

OF SINS."

FOR KRISTI, FOR LEE, FOR ME

AND ALL OF US, GOD BLESS

YOU.

BE IN PRAYER FOR OUR NATION,

BE IN PRAYER FOR OUR

PRESIDENT, AND LET'S SEE

WHAT GOD WILL DO.

GOD BLESS YOU.
