HE'S BEEN A PASTOR AND A

POLITICIAN.

TODAY MIKE HUCKABEE TELLS US

ABOUT HIS MOST IMPORTANT

ROLE.

AND THEN...

I'VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS,

AND I SAID, WHAT'S THE BAD

NEWS.

AND HE GOES, I THINK YOU

HAVE LEUKEMIA.

AND I'M, LIKE, WHAT'S

LEUKEMIA?

AND I'M, LIKE, IS THAT A

CANCER.

AND THE NEWS GOT WORSE.

I THINK YOU HAVE ABOUT

TWO WEEKS TO LIVE.

HOW SHE BEAT THE ODDS.

YOU CAN PUT YOUR TRUST IN

MEDICINE, BUT THE ULTIMATE

HEALING HAS TO BE GOD.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

THESE FOLKS LIVE UNDER THE

CONSTANT THREAT OF ROCKET

ATTACKS, INCLUDING STRIKES

ON THEIR CHILDREN'S

SCHOOLS.

AND THAT'S WHAT LIFE IS LIKE

EVERY DAY FOR PEOPLE IN

SOUTHERN ISRAEL.

Terry: NOW ISRAEL IS

CONSIDERING MILITARY ACTION

AGAINST THE PALESTINIANS,

AFTER AN INCREASE IN THOSE

ROCKET ATTACKS FROM GAZA.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE STORY

FROM JERUSALEM.

Reporter: ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

BRIEFED SOME 74 AMBASSADORS

AND DIPLOMATS IN ASCALON,

WELL WITHIN RANGE OF ROCKETS

FROM THE GAZA STRIP.

IF AN ALARM IS SOUNDED,

YOU HAVE EXACTLY 30 SECONDS

TO FIND SHELTER.

Reporter: THE

INVITATION CAME AS MORE THAN

120 ROCKETS PUMMELLED

SOUTHERN ISRAEL IN A 48-HOUR

PERIOD, SCORING SEVERAL

DIRECT HITS, CLOSING

SCHOOLS, AND SENDING SHOCK

SHOCKWAVES THROUGH THE

SOUTH.

IT'S FAMILIES, OLD

PEOPLE, CHILDREN, BABIES,

ARE TARGETED ON A DAILY

BASIS BY PEOPLE WHO TOOK

AREAS THAT WE VAC CATED,

THAT THE GOVERNMENT OF

ISRAEL VACATED, AND CAME IN

THERE AND ARE NOW HIDING

BEHIND CIVILIANS AND FIRING

ON OUR CHILDREN.

Reporter: THESE VIDEOS

SHOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO RUN

FOR COVER AND THEN WAIT FOR

THE EXPLOSIONS.

SINCE 2001, NEARLY 13,000

ROCKETS AND MORTERS HAVE

LANDED IN ISRAEL.

MORE THAN 8,000 SINCE ISRAEL

HAS PULLED OUT FROM THE GAZA

TRIP IN 2005.

NETANYAHU SAID THE SITUATION

IS UNACCEPTABLE.

I DON'T KNOW ANY OF YOUR

GOVERNMENTS WHO CAN ACCEPT

SUCH ATTACKS.

Reporter: MICKEY

ROSENFELD SAID FOREIGN-RANGE

ROCKETS COULD HIT CITIES

LIKE ASHALON, ASHCA.

THESE ARE MADE IN CHINA

AND WHICH ARE SMUGGLED IN,

AND MAKES ITS WAY THROUGH

EGYPT, INTO ISRAEL, AND THE

GAZA TRIP, AND FIRED

DIRECTLY INTO THE SOUTHERN

PART OF ISRAEL.

Reporter: BESIDES THE

ROCKETS, ISRAEL OFTEN

BATTLES THE INTERNATIONAL

PRESSURE TO EXERCISE

RESTRAINT.

BUT MANY ISRAELIS ARE SAYING

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

AND NETANYAHU SAID ISRAEL

WILL FIGHT FOR RIGHT TO

DEFEND ITS PEOPLE.

WE'LL TAKE WHATEVER

ACTION IS NECESSARY TO PUT A

STOP TO THIS.

IT IS SOMETHING I THINK IS

UNDERSTOOD BY YOU, WHO ARE

HERE TODAY, BUT BY ANY

FAIR-MINDED PERSON AND ANY

FAIR-MINDED GOVERNMENT IN

THE WORLD.

THEY WOULD UNDERSTAND IT IS

OUR RIGHT TO DEFEND OUR

PEOPLE.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Pat: YOU KNOW, WHEN

ARIEL SHARON GAVE UP THE

GAZA, I THOUGHT IT WAS A BIG

MISTAKE.

THEY TALKED ABOUT LAND FOR

PEACE.

BUT HE SURRENDERED WHAT WAS

THE PATTRIMONY OF ISRAEL,

AND THEY TORE DOWN THEIR

HOMES AND IT WAS A NASTY

MESS.

THIS IS WHAT THANKS HE GETS

FROM THE PALESTINIANS.

SO HAMAS HAS MOVED INTO THE

GAZA AREA.

IT WAS ALL A WASTELAND, AND

THE PLACE WAS SUFFERING IN

MISERY FOR THE PALESTINIAN

PEOPLE WHO WERE LIVING

THERE, BUT THESE PEOPLE HAVE

MADE IT WORSE.

AND IT JUST SEEMS LIKE, TO

ME, ISRAEL IS GOING TO HAVE

TO INVADE AND GO IN AND

CLEAN THAT THING OUT.

YOU JUST CANNOT ALLOW THAT

AS A BASE FOR ROCKETS.

AND ISRAEL IS SO SMALL.

WHENEVER YOU GO THERE, YOU

REALIZE WHAT A TINY, TINY

COUNTRY IT IS.

Terry: AND SURROUNDED.

WHAT NETANYAHU SAID IS SO

TRUE.

THERE IS NOT ANOTHER COUNTRY

IN THE WORLD, IF FIRED UPON

LIKE THIS, THAT WOULD NOT

RESPOND.

Pat: IMAGINE IF WE HAD

13,000 ROCKET ATTACKS FROM

CANADA?

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT.

IN NEW YORK, UP STATE NEW

YORK, AND ACROSS IN DETROIT

AND PLACES LIKE THAT.

IT WOULD BE UNBELIEVABLE.

THE UNITED STATES -- WE'D BE

SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE AND

IT WOULD JUST BE TERRIBLE.

BUT WE EXPECT THE ISRAELIS

TO, QUOTE,"SHOW RESTRAINT."

WELL, I THINK IT IS TIME TO

MOVE IN, AND MAYBE -- BUT

THE ISRAELIS DON'T WANT

THEM.

THEY DON'T WANT TO GOVERN

THAT AREA, BUT AT THE SAME

TIME, THEY'RE STUCK WITH

THEM.

I THINK THEY NEED TO GO IN

THERE AND REESTABLISH

ORDER.

IT WILL BE PAINFUL, BUT

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DO

IT.

WELL, HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES, THE BUDGET CRISIS IN

WASHINGTON IS BEING FELT ALL

THE WAY TO WALL STREET.

WHEW!

MANY WEALTHY PEOPLE ARE

SELLING.

WELL, THEY SHOULD.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

Lee: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

WASHINGTON IS

TALKING

ABOUT

RAISING TAXES ON CAPITAL

GAINS, DIVIDENDS, AND OTHER

INVESTMENTS.

SO INVESTORS ARE SELLING

THEIR FINANCIAL ASSETS, LIKE

STOCKS THIS YEAR, AND THAT

WAY THEY WON'T HAVE TO PAY

THE HIGHER TAXES ON GAINS IF

THAT WOULD SELL THEM NEXT

YEAR.

INVESTORS ARE WORRIED ABOUT

THE SO-CALLED FISCAL CLIFF.

CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE

HAVE TO MAKE A DEAL BEFORE

JANUARY 1st TO CUT THE

BUDGET, AND THAT DEAL COULD

INCLUDE HIGHER TAXES ON

INVESTMENTS.

TAXES ON CAPITAL GAINS,

INCLUDING PROFITS FROM

STOCKS, COULD GO UP 15% TO

25%, AND TAXES ON DIVIDENDS

COULD GO UP 15% TO 43%.

THE U.S. WILL BECOME THE

WORLD'S LARGEST OIL PRODUCER

BY AROUND 2020.

THAT'S THE FORECAST FROM THE

INTERNATIONAL ENERGY

AGENCY.

IT POINTS OUT THAT THE U.S.

IS PRODUCING OIL AND NATURAL

GAS AND USING ENERGY MORE

EFFICIENTLY THESE DAYS.

THE AGENCY ALSO SAYS THE

U.S. COULD BECOME NEARLY

SELF-SUFFICIENT IN ENERGY BY

THE YEAR 2035.

AND IT SAYS FOSSEL FUELS

WILL REMAIN THE TOP ENERGY

SOURCE IN THIS COUNTRY FOR

YEARS TO COME, PAT.

Pat: WELL, YOU KNOW,

THEY TALKED ABOUT THE PEAK

OIL.

A GUY NAMED HUBBARD, AND HE

SAID THAT THERE WILL BE A

PEAK OIL, WHERE WE'LL RUN

OUT OF OIL, AND THEN IT WILL

SLOWLY DECLINE.

BUT WHAT HE WAS NOT TAKING

INTO ACCOUNT WAS THE SHALES,

AND SHALES ARE EVERYWHERE.

THEY'RE IN PENNSYLVANIA, NEW

YORK, VIRGINIA, WEST

VIRGINIA, THEY'RE IN OHIO,

AND THEY'RE ALL THROUGHOUT

THE MIDWEST, AND THEY'RE

VERY PROLIFIC IN TEXAS, AND

THEN THEY'RE OUT IN THE

ROCKY MOUNTAINS.

ONE OF THE OIL COMPANIES

FIGURED THAT IF THEY COULD

GET THAT OIL LOOSE FROM THE

SHALES, IT WOULD BE A

BONANZA.

AND SO THEY TAKE A HUGE

AMOUNT OF WATER, MAYBE A

MILLION OR MORE GALLONS --

EXCUSE ME, 50,000 GALLONS OF

WATER AND A MILLION AND A

HALF POUNDS OF SAND AND BLOW

IT INTO THESE FORMATIONS,

AND IT CRACKS THE ROCKS, AND

OUT COMES THE OIL.

AND THESE OIL WELLS ARE

RUNNING 300, 400, 500,

1,000, 200,000 BARRELS A

DAY.

AND THE RIGS ARE RUNNING

LIKE CRAZY.

IT IS ALL OVER TEXAS.

YOU'VE GOT THE UTAHKA SHALE

IN THE PENNSYLVANIA AREA --

Terry: HOW PREVALENT IS

IT IN OTHER PARTS OF THE

WORLD?

Pat: WELL, IT'S OVER IN

EUROPE AND POLAND AND PLACES

LIKE THAT, BUT THEY DON'T

HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY WE DO.

IT SHOWS AMERICAN ENTERPRISE

AND INGENUITY IS

EXTRAORDINARY.

BUT THE E.P.A. WILL DID

ANYTHING TO STOP IT.

ANYTHING THIS GOVERNMENT CAN

DO TO KEEP THIS COUNTRY FROM

PROSPERING, THEY'LL DO IT.

THE E.P.A. IS TRYING ITS

BEST TO STOP US, AND DIVERT

US INTO WIND FARMS AND

THINGS LIKE THAT.

IT IS JUST CRAZY.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY INSANE.

IN ANY EVENT, LIKE IT OR

NOT, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A

BONANZA, AND WE'LL BE

PRODUCING MORE OIL THAN

SAUDI ARABIA, MAYBE AS MANY

AS 11 MILLION BARRELS A

DAY.

Terry: WOW!

HOW IS THE JOB MARKET

AFFECTED BY THAT?

Pat: TWO OR THREE

MILLION.

YOU'VE GOT ALL OF THE RIGS

GOING.

YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE PEOPLE

MANNING THE RIGS.

YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE

GEOLOGISTS, AND PEOPLE

COMING OUT OF SCHOOL, IT'S A

HUGE AMOUNT --

Terry: THAT'S GOOD

NEWS.

Pat: OF COURSE IT IS

GOOD NEWS.

BUT LIKE THAT KEYSTONE

PIPELINE COMING FROM CANADA,

A WOL WONDERFUL SOURCE OF

OIL, AND OBAMA STOPPED IT

COLD.

THAT WAS GOING TO BRING

20,000 JOBS TO FOR STEEL

WORKERS IN THE UNITED

STATES.

AND HE KILLED THE PROJECT.

SOMEHOW HE DIDN'T HAVE TO

PAY THE PRICE AT THE

ELECTION.

IN ANY EVENT, IT IS GOOD

NEWS.

NOW WE'RE GOING TO SWING ON

TO ONE OF THOSE WEIRD

THINGS.

YOU THINK A GUY IS

BRILLIANT.

HE'S GOT A Ph.D. FROM

PRINCETON.

HE HAS GOT FOUR STARS.

HE HAS WRITTEN A BOOK OF

COUNTERINSURGENTCY.

AND HE IS ONE OF THE

GREATEST GENERALS AMERICA

HAS EVER PRODUCED, AND YET

HE CAN'T KEEP HIS PANTS

ZIPPED.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, THE SCANDAL

INVOLVING C.I.A. DIRECTOR

DAVID PETRAEUS HAS

EXPANDED.

THE PENTAGON IS

INVESTIGATING THE TOP U.S.

COMMANDER IN AFGHANISTAN,

PETRAEUS SUCCESSOR, BY THE

WAY, FOR SENDING WHAT MAY

HAVE BEEN INAPPROPRIATE

E-MAILS TO THE WOMAN AT THE

CENTER OF THE PETRAEUS

STORY.

Reporter: ANOTHER TOP

U.S. COMMANDER COULD GO DOWN

WITH PETRAEUS.

GENERAL JOHN ALLEN IS UNDER

INVESTIGATION FOR ALLEGEDLY

SENDING INAPPROPRIATE

E-MAILS TO JILL KELLEY.

SHE WAS RECEIVING

THREATENING E E-MAILS FROM

THE WOMAN HAVING AN AFFAIR

WITH HIM.

U.S. OFFICIALS SAY THERE ARE

BETWEEN 20,000 TO 30,000

E-MAILS BETWEEN ALLEN AND

KELLEY, AND NEW DETAILS OF

THE AFFAIR WITH PAULA

BROADWELL CONTINUES TO

EMERGE.

AGENTS LEFT HER HOME WITH

FILES, BOXES, AND A

COMPUTER.

IN HIS UNIVERSE, THIS

MORAL FAILING IS

UNACCEPTABLE, AND RENDERS

HIM UNWORTHY OF CONTINUES

THIS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE

NATION.

Reporter: AND MORE

QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY THE

F.B.I. WAITED UNTIL AFTER

THE ELECTION TO ALERT THE

WHITE HOUSE ABOUT THE

PETRAEUS AFFAIR.

THE F.B.I. WAS NOT JUST

CONDUCTING A CRIMINAL

INVESTIGATION OF AN ALLEGED

E-MAIL HARASSMENT CASE.

IT WAS LOOKING INTO WHETHER

A SEPARATE SET OF E-MAILS

BETWEEN PETRAEUS AND

BROADWELL MIGHT INVOLVE A

SECURITY BREACH.

IT DOESN'T ADD UP THAT

THE F.B.I. WOULD CARRY ON

THIS TYPE OF INVESTIGATION

WITHOUT BRINGING IT TO THE

PRESIDENT OR THE HIGHEST

LEVELS OF THE WHITE HOUSE.

Reporter: THE F.B.I. IS

EXPECTED TO PRESENT A

TIMELINE OF ITS

INVESTIGATION AT A MEETING

WITH CONGRESS ON WEDNESDAY.

Lee: PETRAEUS DENIES

GIVING BROADWELL ANY OF THE

SENSITIVE INFORMATION

ALLEGEDLY FOUND ON HER

COMPUTER, PAT.

Pat: FOLKS, I DON'T USE

E-MAIL.

THANK THE LORD.

BUT EVERYBODY ELSE DOES.

MY WIFE USES E-MAIL.

BUT THOSE THINGS ARE

PUBLIC.

YOU GO ON TO THE INTERNET

AND YOU SEND OUT MESSAGES,

AND I CANNOT BELIEVE HE'S

TEENAGERS, FOR EXAMPLE, ON

Facebook, THEY PUT THESE

INTIMATE DETAILS OF

THEMSELVES.

THEY HAVE PICTURES OF

THEMSELVES WITH NO CLOTHES

ON AND THEY PUT THEM ON THE

INTERNET.

WHAT ARE THEY THINKING.

AND FOR GENERALS -- THESE

GUYS ARE GENERALS.

WHAT ARE THEY THINKING WHEN

THEY SEND OUT E-MAILS.

GOOD GRIEF.

AT LEAST THEY COULD MAKE

TELEPHONE CALLS.

THEY HAVE E-MAILS, AND THEY

HAVE A WRITTEN RECORD.

AND ALL OF THOSE THINGS ARE

SEARCHABLE AT LAW.

IT'S UNBELIEVABLE.

IT SEEMS LIKE THERE IS NO

WAY YOU CAN GET RID OF

THEM.

IN THE OLD DAYS, YOU COULD

GET RID OF THEM.

NOWADAYS THEY CAN'T GET RID

OF IT.

WHY WOULD THEY BE SO STUPID

AS TO DO IT, BUT THEY DO AND

THEY GET CAUGHT.

LEE?

Lee: GASOLINE RATIONING

HAS ENDED IN NEW JERSEY, BUT

THE NORTHEAST RECOVERY FROM

SUPERSTORM SANDY IS STILL

SLOW.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

HELPING TO SPEED THINGS UP.

THESE ARE IMAGES OF

VOLUNTEERS AT WORK IN

ROCKAWAY BEACH, NEW YORK.

THEY CAME TO THE RESCUE OF A

FAMILY AT THEIR WITS END.

MY MOTHERS CAR WAS

TOTALLY SUBMERGED UNDER

WATER, AND MY CAR, AND MY

APARTMENT, ALL OF THE STUFF

WAS DESTROYED.

"OPERATION BLESSING" WAS A

BIG HELP.

I'M BLESSED THAT THEY CAME

AND HELPED ME AND MY MOM

THROUGH THIS WORK.

IT WOULD TAKE ME A COUPLE OF

DAYS TO DO THIS BY MYSELF.

Lee:

"OPERATION BLESSING'S" AID

IS A COMFORT TO MANY NEW

YORKERS WHO ARE BEYOND

FRUSTRATED THAT THEIR POWER

HAS YET TO BE RESTORED,

PAT.

Pat:

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

WORKING AND SOME REMOTE

PLACES.

FAR ROCKAWAY, IT IS FAR.

IT IS A LONG WAY AWAY FROM

THE CENTER OF MANHATTAN, BUT

THEY'RE OUT THERE, AND THEY

HAVE SUFFERED.

AND WE'RE HELPING PEOPLE IN

ROCKAWAY BEACH, AND ON

STATEN ISLAND.

I LIVED ON STATEN ISLAND.

IT WAS KIND OF RURAL, BUT

NOW WITH THE BRIDGE, IT IS

MUCH MORE POPULATED.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, THEY'VE

BEEN SUFFERING IN STATEN

ISLAND.

AND BREEZY POINT HAS JUST

BEEN -- NATIONAL MEDIA HAS

FOCUSED IN ON BREEZY POINT.

THOSE PEOPLE HAVE JUST GONE

THROUGH HORRORS.

AND THEY ARE SUFFERING, AND

ALSO MYSTIC ISLAND, NEW

JERSEY.

WE'VE BEEN HELPING ALL OF

THEM WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING."

AND OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO

THOSE PEOPLE.

THEY HAVE BEEN BRAVE.

THEY HAVE BEEN COURAGEOUS.

THEY HAVE BEEN DRAWING

TOGETHER AS NEIGHBORS, AND

YET THEY NEED HELP.

THEY HAVEN'T BEEN GETTING

THE HELP THEY OUGHT TO GET

FROM EITHER THE RED CROSS OR

FEMA.

SO WE'RE IN THE GAP IN SOME

MEASURE TO HELP WITH HOT

FOOD AND WITH ALL OF THE

SUPPLIES THEY NEED, AND

THOUSAND O OF POUNDS OF

FOOD AND SUPPLIES AND

GROCERIES.

Terry: SO MANY OF THEM

HAVE TALKED ABOUT THERE IS

NOBODY HERE.

IT IS A BLESSING TO SEE

SOMEONE SHOW UP WHO IS

THERE, EVEN JUST TO COMFORT

YOU AND RECOGNIZE YOU'RE

NEED, YOUR DILEMMA.

Pat: THEY WERE -- THE

RED CROSS WAS HANDING OUT

DOUGHNUTS AND COCOA.

THESE PEOPLE ARE STARVING

AND THEY'RE FREEZING COLD.

THEY NEED BLANKETS.

THEY NEED SUBSTANTIAL

STUFF.

AND THEY NEED PEOPLE TO HELP

REBUILD THEIR HOMES.

WE'RE DOING WHAT WE CAN, BUT

IT IS ONE MORE AREA -- IF

YOU WANT TO HELP "OPERATION

BLESSING" IN THIS, TELEPHONE

IS 1-888-777-1999

1-888-777-1999,

1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com, AND THE NEED IS

STILL GREAT.

THE CRISIS HASN'T GONE

AWAY.

AND NOW IT IS COLD, AND IT'S

GETTING COLDER.

WE'VE HAD A COUPLE OF WARM

DAYS HERE, AND THE WEATHER

HAS SHIFTED IN OUR PART OF

THE COUNTRY, ABOUT 20°

COLDER.

Terry: BUT WE CAN MAKE

A DIFFERENCE.

Pat: WE CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE, YES, SIR.

Terry: UP NEXT, THE

GOVERNOR AS GRANDPA.

STAY TUNED FOR A SIDE OF

MIKE HUCKABEE YOU HAVEN'T

SEEN BEFORE WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: WELL, FORMER

ARKANSAS GOVERNOR MIKE

HUCKABEE SHOCKED THE NATION

WHEN HE RAN AN INCREDIBLE

RACE AT THE REPUBLICAN

PRIMARIES.

HE WON STATE AFTER STATE.

HE POLLED UP A VERY

SUBSTANTIAL FOLLOWING.

PEOPLE LOVED HIM, AND THEN

HE HAS GONE ON TO BE A

COMMENTATOR ON THE FA FOX

NETWORK.

BUT THE THING HE WANTED TO

DO WAS TO GIVE HIS GRANDSON,

CHANDLER, SOMETHING THAT

WOULD LAST FOREVER.

AND IN THE MIDST OF THAT,

HIS GRANDDAUGHTER, SCARLET

WAS BORN, REVEALING A SIDE

OF HIM NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: MIKE HUCKABEE

HAS WORN MANY HATS IN THIS

LIFETIME, FROM PASTOR TO

POLITICIAN, GOVERNOR TO

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, EVEN

TALK-SHOW HOST, POLITICAL

PUNDIT, AND BASS PLAYER IN A

BAND.

BUT HE IS ALSO A

GRANDFATHER, AND WITH ALL OF

HIS CONTRIBUTIONS, HIS MOST

RECENT IS THE ONE HE DEEMS

THE MOST IMPORTANT.

IN HIS BOOK "DEAR CHANDLER,

DEAR CHARLOTTE, THE THINGS

THAT MATTER MOST."

THE BOOK TOUCHES ON FAITH,

LOVE, VALUES, AND WORTH

ETHIC.

ALL THROUGH HUCKABEE'S OWN

TRANSPARENT LIFE LESSONS AND

PERSONAL STORIES.

Pat: JOINING US FROM

NEW YORK IS A GOOD FRIEND,

MIKE HUCKABEE.

GOVERNOR, NICE TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU, PAT.

WHAT AN HONOR TO BE BACK

WITH YOU.

Pat: WHAT DO YOU WANT

TO TEACH YOUR

GRANDCHILDREN.

I'VE GOT 14 OF THEM, SO GIVE

ME SOME TIPS.

WELL, YOU PROBABLY COULD

SCHOOL ME ON IT.

I THINK SOMETIMES WE GET SO

BUSY WITH THE ACTIVITIES OF

OUR KIDS AND OUR GRANDKIDS

THAT WE FAIL TO REALIZE IS

THE GREATEST THING WE CAN

GIVE THEM IS NOT A PIECE OF

THE 401K, OR A VINTAGE

GUITAR THAT THEY WILL

PROBABLY SELL ON eBAY THE

DAY I'M GONE, BUT IT IS TO

HELP THEM CONNECT WITH WHO

IS BEFORE THEM SO THEY HAVE

SOME UNDERSTANDING WHO THEY

ARE.

WHO IS GOD?

WHY DO YOU HAVE PARENTS?

WHY DO THINGS SOMETIMES

HURT?

WHY DO WE DIE?

THOSE ARE QUESTIONS KIDS

WILL GROW UP ASKING, AND

SOMETIMES YOU'D LOVE TO PUT

YOUR ARM AROUND THEM AND

TELL THEM.

THE TRAGEDY IS SOMETIMES, BY

THE TIME THEY GET OLD ENOUGH

TO UNDERSTAND THOSE ANSWERS,

WE'RE TOO OLD TO GIVE THEM

OR YEAR NOT AROUND ANYMORE.

THIS WAS A GREAT BOOK FOR ME

TO WRITE.

WHAT I WANTED TO DO IS

STIMULATE THEM TO WRITE

THEIR OWN STORIES.

TO PUT SOMETHING DOWN FOR

THEIR GRANDKIDS, SO THAT

THEY'LL HAVE SOMETHING TO

REMEMBER THEM BY.

Pat: MIKE, YOU'VE

WRITTEN THAT THE HIGHEST

REWARD IS FOR WORK IS NOT

WHAT YOU GET OUT OF IT, BUT

WHAT YOU RECEIVE, WHAT YOU

BECOME BY IT.

TELL US WHAT THAT MEANS.

I THINK WE'VE LIVED IN A

SOCIETY, AND CAPITALISM IS A

GREAT THING, AND IT IS A

WONDERFUL, MOTIVATING FORCE,

BUT WORK IS NOT JUST ABOUT

OBTAINING SOMETHING.

IT IS ABOUT BECOMING A

RESPONSIBLE HUMAN BEING.

THE THINGS THAT WE RECEIVE

FOR OUR WORK, THOSE ARE THE

FRINGE BENEFITS, BUT THE

GREATEST BLESSINGS ARE WHAT

WE BECOME.

IF WE LEARN TO BE

RESPONSIBLE, AND WE LEARN TO

BE SELF-SUFFICIENT AND

INDEPENDENT, DEPENDING ONLY

UPON GOD AND HIS STRENGTH

AND HIS PURPOSE FOR OUR

LIVES, THEN WE'RE HAPPY

PEOPLE.

WE HAVE SCROI.

JOY.

IF ALL WE DO IS WORK HARD

AND WE WANT SOMETHING, THEN

OUR LIVES ARE ONLY WRAPPED

UP IN THE SOMETHINGS, AND

THE SOMETHINGS CAN BE

DESTROYED, THEY CAN BE LOST,

THEY CAN BE TAKEN FROM US.

IT GOES BACK TO THE BIBLICAL

ADMONITION, STORE UP YOUR

TREASURES AND HAVE THEM

WHERE THIEVES CAN'T GET TO

IT, AND NOTHING CAN CORRUPT

IT.

WHEN WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE

GREATEST TREASURES OF LIFE

ARE THE INTANGIBLES.

I WANT MY GRANDKIDS TO GROW

UP WITH THE THINGS THAT ARE

INTANGIBLE ARE MUCH MORE

IMPORTANT THAN THINGS THAT

AREN'T.

Pat: YOU LEARNED

SOMETHING BY PICKING UP

PECANS.

WHEN I WAS A KID, MY

PARENTS USED TO FORCE MY

SISTER AND ME TO GO UT ON

PICK UP THE PECANS FROM THE

TREE.

I USED TO HATE THAT WITH A

VENGEANCE.

IT IS SOMETHING I DIDN'T

WANT TO DO.

I THOUGHT SATURDAY MORNINGS

ARE FOR ME.

THEY ARE FOR CARTOONS.

BUT IN STIL INSTILLING IN

ME A WORK ETHIC IS A GIFT

FROM GOD THAT MY PARENTS

INSTILLED IN ME.

I SHUTTER TO THINK WHAT I

WOULD HAVE BECOME IF I SAT

AROUND AND DEPENDED ON

SOMEBODY ELSE TO DO FOR ME.

THE GREATEST TRAGEDY OF A

HUMAN LIFE IS THAT WE ARE

EVER TO BELIEVE WE ARE TO BE

WAITED ON HAND AND FOOT.

EVEN GOING BACK TO OUR

PATRIOTISM, AND REMEMBERING

THE WORDS OF JOHN F.

KENNEDY, "ASK NOT WHAT YOUR

COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU, BUT

WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR

COUNTRY."

THAT'S TRUE.

I THINK ABOUT THOSE PECANS,

I WISH I HAD A COUPLE OF

PECAN TREES IN MY YARD.

THEY WOULD BE PRETTY

VALUABLE THESE DAYS.

Pat: I HAD THEM IN MY

YARD, AND MY KIDS HAD TO

WORK ON SATURDAY.

ONE OF THEM DESTROYED A

RIDING LA LAWN MOWER.

AND THEY SET THE THING ON

FIRE -- IT WAS A TRAGEDY.

BUT THEY LEARNED.

WE JUST HAD AN ELECTION.

SOME PEOPLE ARE REJOICING

AND SOME AREN'T.

WHAT'S YOUR TAKE ON THE

ELECTION?

I THINK PEOPLE HAD TO

REMEMBER HOW CLOSE IT WAS.

THIS WAS A RACE DECIDED BY

LESS THAN 2% OF THE VOTE.

THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE

OUT THERE HAND WRINGING, AND

PARTICULARLY A LOT OF

CHRISTIANS WHO THINK MAYBE

THE VALUES WE HOLD JUST

DON'T WORK.

THE FACT IS CHRISTIANS

DIDN'T GO VOTE IN BIG

NUMBERS THIS TIME.

THE REASON THAT A LOT OF

CANDIDATES DID NOT WIN IS

BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WHO COULD

HAVE AND WOULD HAVE

SUPPORTED THEM DID NOT GO

VOTE.

THIS WAS NOT A VOTE OF A

MESSAGE OF BARACK OBAMA

WINNING.

IT WAS ABOUT THE INCREDIBLE

MACHINERY OF HIS

"GET-OUT-THE-VOTE" EFFORT

THAT WON.

I HOPE PEOPLE DON'T THINK WE

NEED TO BACK OFF OUR

COMMITMENT TO THE SANCTITY

OF EVERY HUMAN LIFE OR THE

VALUE OF LIFE, OR THE

IMPORTANCE OF MARRIAGE, OR

FIGHTING FOR POVERTY AND

DISEASE AND WANTING TO STAND

FOR PEOPLE AT EVER LEVEL OF

HUMAN LIFE.

I DON'T THINK THIS ELECTION

WAS THE END-ALL ELECTION.

IT DOES TELL US WE HAVE TO

BE INCLUSIVE.

WE CAN'T HAVE A PARTY IN

WHICH EVERYBODY LOOKS JUST

LIKE ME.

I DON'T WANT EVERYBODY TO

LOOK JUST LIKE ME.

I WELCOME PEOPLE.

I GOT 49% OF THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTE IN MY

STATE WHEN I RAN FOR

GOVERNOR BECAUSE I BELIEVE

THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE OF COLOR

WILL ACCEPT THE CONSERVATIVE

MESSAGE OF A REPUBLICAN IF

THEY KNOW WE CARE, AND I IF

THEY KNOW OUR POLICIES ARE

INCLUSIVE.

THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO GET

TO.

THIS IDEA THAT PEOPLE OF

COLOR ARE NEVER GOING TO BE

A PART OF THE RUSSIAN

REPUBLICAN PARTY, THAT'S

NONSENSE.

HISPANICS AND

AFRICAN-AMERICANS ARE MORE

PRO-TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE AND

MORE PRO-LIFE THAN MOST OF

THE WHITE VOTERS.

Pat: I HOPE YOU STAY

WITH IT BECAUSE YOUR VOICE

IS NEEDED.

MIKE, I WANT TO THANK YOU.

GOVERNOR HUCKABEE, "DEAR

CHANDLER, DEAR CHARLOTTE,"

AND THE BOOK IS OUT NOW ON

AMAZON WHERE BOOKS ARE

SOLD.

IT WOULD BE A NICE PRESENT

FOR YOUR GRANDCHILDREN FOR

CHRISTMAS.

Terry: WHAT A GREAT

LEGACY.

SMART IDEA.

Pat: COME BACK AGAIN.

HOPE TO.

Terry: COMING UP, AN

AMAZING ANSWER TO PRAYER.

THE STORY OF A BEAUTIFUL

WOMAN WITH A DEADLY

DIAGNOSIS.

I'M, LIKE, WHAT'S

LEUKEMIA?

IS THAT A CANCER.

WITHIN WEEKS WITHOUT

TREATMENT, YOU WILL DIE.

Terry: HEAR HOW A

PROMISE KEPT THIS WIFE AND

MOTHER ALIVE AND ASTONISHED

HER DOCTORS.

PLUS WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS, SO STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: SHE HAD NOT BEEN

TO SEE HER DOCTOR IN SIX

YEARS.

SHE FELT GREAT.

UNTIL A ROUTINE BLOOD TEST

REVEALED THAT VERA HAD A

TICKING TIME BOMB IN HER

SYSTEM.

ONE THAT COULD KILL HER

WITHIN TWO WEEKS.

COMING FROM A BACKGROUND

OF A BROKEN HOME, A

FATHERLESS HOME, AND WE WERE

POOR -- THERE WERE SIX

KIDS.

WE HAD NOTHING.

SO MY WHOLE IDEA WAS IF I'M

SUCCESSFUL AND I HAVE

FINANCES, THEN PEOPLE WON'T

LOOK AT ME AS A POOR

ORPHAN.

THEY'LL SEE MY SUCCESS.

Reporter: VERA

KIRKPATRICK MADE A NAME FOR

HERSELF SELLING ART.

BY HER MID-20s, SHE WAS

THE SUCCESSFUL WOMAN SHE

ALWAYS DREAMED OF BECOMING.

I WANTED TO CREATE MY OWN

RULES, MY OWN WORLD, YOU

KNOW.

Reporter: VERA MET JOHN

KIRKPATRICK, AND THEY

MARRIED.

JOHN'S FAITH IN GOD WAS

STRONG.

AND HE TRIED TO SHARE IT

WITH HIS WIFE.

I FOUND SOMEONE THAT WAS

REALLY INTO ME, THAT LOVED

ME, THAT WOULD DO ANYTHING

FOR ME.

Reporter: VERA AND JOHN

MOVED TO HAWAII AND INVESTED

IN TWO ART GALLERIES.

TOGETHER THEY BECAME EVEN

MORE SUCCESSFUL.

BUT VERA FELT THE EMPTINESS

THAT HAD HAUNTED HER

CHILDHOOD.

SHE DECIDED JOHN WAS THE

PROBLEM.

JOHN ENDED UP PUTTING ME

ON A PEDESTAL.

AND THAT WAS GOOD FOR A

WHILE, BUT THEN I GOT TIRED

OF THAT.

Reporter: JOHN COULDN'T

UNDERSTAND WHY VERA DIDN'T

APPRECIATE HIS ATTENTION.

WELL, I THOUGHT SHE WAS

WRONG.

I KNEW THAT SHE NEEDED ME

AND WHAT I COULD PROVIDE WAS

VALUABLE.

Reporter: VERA SAW IT

AS CONTROL.

I DIDN'T WANT TO BE

MOLDED AND SHAPED.

I'M THE POWERFUL PERSON, NOT

WE, BUT ME.

Reporter: THE YEARS

PASSED.

THE MARRIAGE SUFFERED.

EVEN AS THEY RAISED THREE

CHILDREN, VERA THOUGHT ABOUT

LEAVING JOHN.

BUT BY THE SUMMER OF 2009,

VERA WOULD NEED JOHN MORE

THAN EVER.

HER ROUTINE PHYSICAL

REVEALED TROUBLING NEWS.

YOU HAVEN'T BEEN HERE IN

SIX YEARS.

I'M GOING TO DO A ROUTINE

BLOOD TEST.

Reporter: VERA WAS

NEVER SICK AND WORKED OUT

TWICE A DAY.

SHE SAYS THE RESULTS OF HER

BLOOD WORK WERE LIKE A PUNCH

IN THE STOMACH.

I'VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS.

AND I SAID, WHAT'S THE BAD

NEWS.

AND HE GOES, I THINK YOU

HAVE LEUKEMIA.

AND I'M, LIKE, WHAT'S

LEUKEMIA?

I'M THINKING FOR A MINUTE,

AND I'M, LIKE, WAIT, IS THAT

A CANCER?

AND HE GOES YEAH.

AND HE SAYS, WHAT'S WORSE IS

I THINK YOU HAVE ABOUT TWO

WEEKS TO LIVE.

Reporter: SHE WANTED A

SECOND OPINION, SO

ONCOLOGIST ANTHONY DESALVA

WAS CALLED IN.

HE CONFIRMED THE RESULTS.

ACUTE LEUKEMIA, IN THE

ABSENCE OF URGENT TREATMENT,

IS RAPIDLY FATAL.

IT IS TYPICALLY WITHIN WEEKS

WITHOUT TREATMENT YOU WILL

DIE.

Reporter: VERA NEEDED

MORE THAN SUCCESS NOW.

SHE NEEDED GOD.

SHE HAD ATTENDED CHURCH ALL

HER LIFE BUT DIDN'T KNOW IF

GOD WOULD LISTEN.

I'M TELLING YOU AT THAT

MOMENT, EVERYTHING JUST FELL

FOR ME.

IT WAS LIKE THE BAGS, THE

CLOTHES, THE MATCHING PURSE

AND SHOES -- NONE OF THAT

MATTERED.

OKAY, GOD, WAIT A MINUTE.

I'M IN A CROSSROADS HERE.

ARE YOU REAL?

CAN I CALL ON YOU?

ARE YOU ABLE?

ALL OF THESE STORIES AND ALL

OF THESE THINGS, IS THAT FOR

REAL MY WHOLE LIFE?

ARE YOU MAD AT ME?

WILL YOU EVEN LISTEN TO ME

NOW?

I'VE BEEN DOING EVERYTHING

ON MY OWN TERMS.

THE FIRST THING I DID WAS

REACHED OUT FOR A LIFESAVER,

AND THAT WAS GOD.

SO I WENT BACK TO MY ROOTS.

BECAUSE I WASN'T GOING TO

SAVE MYSELF.

YOU CAN PUT YOUR TRUST IN

MEDICINE, BUT THE ULTIMATE

HEALING IS GOING TO HAVE TO

BE GOD.

Reporter: WITHIN TWO

DAYS, FAMILY WAS CALLED IN

TO TAKE CARE OF THE

CHILDREN.

VERA AND JOHN FLEW TO

SEATTLE WHERE THEY MET

DR. JOHN KEGEL WITH THE FRED

HUTCHISON CANCER RESEARCH

CENTER.

HIS ASSESSMENT OF VERA'S

DIAGNOSIS OF ACUTE MYELOID

LEUKEMIA WASN'T PROMISING.

IT WAS ONE THE WORST A.M.

L., REALLY HIGH RISK.

WE TREATED HER WITH A HIGH

REGIMEN OF CHEMOTHERAPIES,

AND WE WEREN'T REALLY SURE

IT WOULD WORK.

BUT WE DID FEEL IT WAS

IMPORTANT FOR HER, GIVEN THE

HIGH-RISK NATURE OF HER

DISEASE.

Reporter: BEFORE THE

TREATMENTS BEGAN, JOHN

BELIEVED GOD GAVE THEM A

PROMISE.

WHEN THE DOCTORS COME IN,

THEY HAVE TO TELL YOU ALL OF

THE WORST-CASE SCENARIOS.

IT IS LIKE WHATEVER THEY

SAID, IT DIDN'T MATTER

BECAUSE GOD SAID SHE'S GOING

TO LIVE, SHE'S GOING TO

LIVE.

THE SCRIPTURE, JEREMIAH

29: 11: "FOR I KNOW THE

PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU, NOT TO

HURT YOU OR TO HARM YOU, BUT

TO GIVE YOU A HOPE AND A

FUTURE."

I TOOK THAT LITERALLY.

Reporter: FOR MONTHS,

VERA SUFFERED THROUGH

AGONIZING CHEMOTHERAPY

TREATMENTS.

JOHN STAYED BY HER SIDE AND

BELIEVED GOD FOR HER

HEALING.

THEIR CHILDREN FLEW TO

SEATTLE TO SPEND TIME WITH

HER, BUT THE DAYS GREW

DARKER AND DARKER.

I WAS JUST OVERWHELMED.

AND IN MY POCKET, I DON'T

KNOW IF I HEARD SOMETHING OR

WHATEVER, BUT I REACHED IN

MY POCKET AND GOT MY PHONE

OUT, AND THEY'RE LIKE, THIS

IS THE CBN PRAYER LINE.

Reporter: JOHN AND VERA

RELIED ON THE CBN PRAYER

CENTER FOR SUPPORT.

BUT FOR A STAFF MEMBER TO

CALL THEM AND KNOW THEIR

NEED JUST AMAZED JOHN.

I WAS, LIKE, WOW, GOD,

YOU KNEW AT THE EXACT

MOMENT.

Reporter: THEY REJOICED

WHEN VERA WENT INTO

REMISSION.

BUT HER BATTLE FOR LIFE WAS

FAR FROM OVER.

I THINK THE ODDS OF

LONG-TERM SUCCESS WERE CLOSE

TO ZERO WITHOUT THE STEM

CELL TRANSPLANT FOR SURE.

Reporter: BUT VERA'S

BLOOD CONTAINED A RARE

ANTIGEN THAT WAS DIFFICULT

TO MATCH.

THE SEARCH FOR A DONOR WENT

WORLDWIDE.

DAYS PASSED AND VERA

WAITED.

THE WHOLE TIME YOU'RE

JUST GOING, IF I CAN JUST

GET THROUGH THIS, IF I CAN

GET THROUGH THIS AND GET THE

TRANSPLANT, I'M GOING TO

LIVE.

SO YOU JUST GO INTO SURVIVAL

MODE.

Reporter: FINALLY A

DONOR WAS FOUND.

WE HAD TO USE AN

ALTERNATIVE DONOR THAT

WASN'T COMPLETELY MATCHED.

THAT WAS ALSO VERY HIGH-RISK

AND MORE CHALLENGING.

Reporter: THE SAME

MONTH VERA WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH LEUKEMIA, A MAN NAMED

DIMITRI WAS VOLUNTEERING A

SA SALIVA SAMPLE AT A BLOOD

BANK I IN TEL AVIV.

21 DAYS LATER SHE LEFT TO BE

MONITORED OFF-CAMPUS.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD HAD

HIS WONDERFUL HANDS ALL OVER

VERA.

NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.

YOU COULD SEE IT EVERY

SINGLE DAY WHEN YOU SAW

HER.

Reporter: AFTER SEVEN

MONTHS, VERA FINALLY

RETURNED HOME TO HAWAII.

DR. ANTHONY DISALVO TOOK

OVER HER CARE.

IT IS AMAZING.

I'VE SENT THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE FOR TRANSPLANTS, AND

I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING

LIKE VERA.

I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYBODY

RECOVER SO QUICKLY AND SO

PROFOUNDLY.

Reporter: JOHN AND VERA

SAY THE PROMISE GOD GAVE

THEM CAME TO PASS.

I THINK THE MESSAGE TO ME

WAS IF GOD GIVES YOU A

PROMISE, TRUST IN THAT

PROMISE BECAUSE IT WILL COME

TO PASS.

NO MATTER WHAT THE

CIRCUMSTANCES SAY, TRUST IN

WHAT GOD HAS SPOKEN TO YOU.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL LOVE

AFFAIR WITH GOD AND I NOW.

AND HE MENDED MY BROKEN

HEART.

HE FIXED MY MARRIAGE AND

BRINGS PEACE AND JOY TO MY

HOME, TO MY STORES, MY

GALLERIES, AND HE HAS

RADICALLY CHANGED THE

CHILDREN'S HEARTS THROUGH

GOD.

EVEN MY LITTLE 9-YEAR-OLD,

YOU KNOW, JESUS HEALED MY

MOMMY'S BLOOD, AND HE DID.

THIS JOURNEY CONTINUES.

IT'S ALL UPWARD AND ONWARD.

AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT GOD

HAS IN STORE, BUT I'M PRETTY

SURE IT'S A GOOD THING.

I'M PRETTY SURE IT'S A GOOD

THING.

Terry: FOR I KNOW THE

PLANS THAT I HAVE FOR YOU,

SAYS THE LORD.

PLANS TO PROSPER YOU AND

GIVE YOU HOPE AND A FUTURE.

THAT IS WHAT SHE -- THAT'S

ONE PROMISE.

ONE PROMISE.

Pat: YOU LAY HOLD OF

GOD, AND GOD HAS THE

ANSWER.

IT IS AN AMAZING STORY.

TERRY, YOU HAVE ANOTHER

ANSWER YOU WANT TO SHARE.

Terry: THIS IS FROM

LISA.

SHE SAYS, "I WATCH YOUR

PROGRAM EVERY NIGHT.

I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A CYST

ON MY THYROID AND WAS TOLD

BY THE DOCTOR I HAVE TO HAVE

A NEEDLE BIOPSY IN MY NECK.

I'M DEATHLY AFRAID OF

NEEDLES, ESPECIALLY IN MY

NECK.

THE NIGHT I FOUND OUT ABOUT

THIS DIAGNOSIS, I WAS

WATCHING YOUR PROGRAM, AND

PAT SAID, THERE IS SOMEONE

OUT THERE WITH SOMETHING ON

YOUR THYROID AND JESUS IS

HEALING IT RIGHT NOW.

I PUT MY HAND ON MY NECK,

AND THANK YOU, JESUS.

TWO WEEKS LATER, THE DOCTOR

COULD FIND NO CYST AND NO

NEEDLES."

Pat: PRAISE THE LORD.

THERE IS SOMEBODY FROM

HAMPTON, NEW YORK, WHO WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH PARANOID

SCHIZOPHRENIA 10 YEARS AGO.

SHE TOOK MEDICATIONS, BUT

THEY HAD A MAJOR SIDE EFFECT

AND THEY CAUSED HER TO HAVE

A CLENCHED JAW.

AND ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

AND SHE HEARD TERRY SAYING,

SOMEBODY, YOU HAVE

SCHIZOPHRENIA AND A CLENCHED

JAW, AND GOD IS HEALING

THAT.

THIS WOMAN, PAT, CLAIMED THE

WORD OF GOD AND HAS BEEN

SYMPTOM AND MEDICATION-FREE

EVER SINCE.

Terry: THAT'S A YAY,

GOD!

Pat: YOU SAY, THESE ARE

SPECIAL PEOPLE, BUT WE'RE

ALL PEOPLE IN GOD'S EYES.

TERRY AND I WANT TO PRAY

TOGETHER AND WE'RE GOING TO

BELIEVE GOD FOR YOU.

FATHER, WE JOIN TOGETHER AND

WE PRAY FOR THESE IN THIS

AUDIENCE WHO ARE SUFFERING,

WHO NEED HEALING.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PEOPLE

RIGHT NOW WHO HAVE HEART

PROBLEMS, YOU HAVE LEAKY

VALVES IN YOUR HEART, YOU

HAVE HEART MURMURS, YO AND

YOU HAVE OTHER CONDITIONS.

WE SPEAK THAT THOSE HEARTS

SHOULD REGULATE AND BEAT AS

NORMAL, AND THAT YOU WOULD

BE EVERY BIT WHOLE.

AND YOU'LL FIND STRENGTH

COMING INTO YOUR BODY EVEN

AS WE SPEAK.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

NAMED MARTY, AND YOU HAVE A

CONDITION THAT HAS PLAGUED

YOU FOR SOME TIME.

AND YOU FEEL LIKE GOD HAS

NOT RESPONDED.

TODAY IS YOUR DAY.

WHATEVER IT IS THAT IS

PLAGUING YOU, BE SET FREE IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: THE WORD "VICTORY"

COMES TO MIND.

MANY OF YOU FEEL DEFENDED.

I WANT TO PROCLAIM THE WORD

OF JESUS, THERE IS VICTORY

IN THE LORD.

IN YOUR OWN LIFE, SAY I AM A

VICTOR IN JESUS CHRIST.

JUST SAY IT AND BELIEVE IT,

AND RECEIVE VICTORY FROM

THIS MOMENT ON IN JESUS'

NAME.

Terry: AND LESLIE, YOUR

PRAYER HAS BEEN HEARD AND

GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

Pat: LESLIE, AMEN.

TERRY, WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: WAYS TO BEAT THE

STRESS, SAVE MONEY, AND HAVE

MORE FUN THIS HOLIDAY

SEASON.

WHO DOESN'T NEED THAT?

OUR KRISTI HAS THE GAME PLAN

WITH A SPECIAL GUEST, COMING

UP.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

THE U.P.S. FOUNDATION IS

CUTTING OFF SUPPORT TO THE

BOY SCOUTS OVER IT'S POLICY

OF EXCLUDING GAY OR LESBIANS

FROM BEING SCOUTS OR SCOUT

LEADERS.

IT GAVE MORE THAN $85,000 TO

THE BOY SCOUTS LAST YEAR.

NOW THE FOUNDATION SAYS THAT

ALL GROUPS APPLYING FOR

GRANTS WILL HAVE TO MEET THE

SAME HIRING SYNDROMES AS

U.P.S.

THE FOUNDATION MADE THE

CHANGE AFTER AN ON-LINE

PETITION PROTESTING ITS

GRANTS TO THE SCOUTS

GARNERED 80,000 SIGNATURES.

PEOPLE IN 22 STATES HAVE

PETITIONED THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT TO SUCCEED FROM

THE UNION AFTER PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S RE-ELECTION.

SOME 157,000 PEOPLE IN

STATES, INCLUDING LOUISIANA,

ALABAMA, GEORGIA, AND TEXAS,

HAVE SIGNED THEIR NAMES TO

PETITIONS.

THE PETITIONS HAVE BEEN

SUBMITTED THROUGH THE WHITE

HOUSE'S WEBSITE CALLED "WE

THE PEOPLE."

LOUISIANA WAS THE FIRST

STATE TO FILE WITH MORE THAN

13,000 SIGNATURES.

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS YET TO

RESPOND.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN ALWAYS GET

THE LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Kristi: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

I'M HERE WITH LIFE COACH,

JENNIFER TUMION, AND SHE IS

GOING TO SHOW US WAYS TO

TAKE THE STRESS OUT OF THE

HOLIDAYS BY PUTTING THE FUN

BACK INTO THEM.

LET'S GET RIGHT IT.

THERE IS A LOT OF STRESS

AROUND THE HOLIDAYS, AND THE

HOLIDAYS HAVE SO MUCH

MEANING AND BEAUTY AND JOY,

AND WE WANT TO SPREAD IT AND

STRESS LESS AND SMILE MORE

THROUGHOUT THE HOLIDAY

SEASONS.

SO LET'S START WITH SOME

BASICS.

THANKSGIVING IS HERE.

CHRISTMASTIME, CONNECT

PEOPLE BY MAKING A PHOTO

SET.

SOMETHING THAT IS FUN.

SOMETHING YOU CAN TAKE

PICTURES OF THE FAMILY.

MAYBE GET A PILGRIM HAT.

A LITTLE TURKEY PUPPET.

HAVE EVERYBODY POSE AND MAKE

A SIGN THAT SAYS THE HOLIDAY

AND THE YEAR.

PRINTOUT THE PICTURES AND

YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO GIVE

BEFORE THEY LEAVE.

THEY CAN ALL TAKE PICTURES

TOGETHER AND HAVE A BLAST.

Kristi: I CHEATED A

LITTLE AND HIT THE PHOTO

BOOTH A LITTLE EARLIER AND

HAD SO MUCH FUN.

IT KIND OF DESTRESSES

EVERYONE.

AND ALSO MUSIC.

MUSIC IS SOMETHING THAT

MAKES US ALL SMILE AND ENJOY

EACH OTHER'S COMPANY.

AND IF YOU FIND OUT YOUR

GUESTS -- WHAT THEIR

FAVORITE SONGS ARE AHEAD OF

TIME, YOU CAN DO A LITTLE

PRE-HOST PLANNING AND MAKE A

C.D. OF EVERYBODY'S FAVORITE

MUSIC.

AND GIVE IT TO THEM AFTER

THE PARTY.

Kristi: AND YOU CAN

PLAY IT DURING THE PARTY.

AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO

STRESS OUT.

I HAVE MY KIDS TAKE THEIR

CRAYONS AND MAKE SNOWMEN.

YOU COULD DO IT RIGHT AT THE

PARTY.

YOU CAN TAKE PICTURES AND

SCAN THEM AND MAKE THE C.D.

COVERS.

THIS IS N MY GRANDFATHER,

AND WE FOUND AN OLD PICTURE

OF HIM AND MADE A C.D. FOR

HIM.

Kristi: AND MY FAMILY

IS ALL ABOUT THE FOOD, AND

IT BETTER BE GOOD.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THE FOOD.

MY FAMILY IS FOODIES AS

WELL.

BUT RATHER THAN STRESSING

OVER 10 SUPER DISHES, I SAY

MAKE ONE SUPER DISH.

THIS IS MY HUSBAND'S

CHESTNUT SAUSAGE.

Kristi: LET ME TASTE IT

WHILE YOU'RE TALKING.

GO AHEAD AND EAT IT.

Kristi: DON'T MIND IF I

DO.

KEEP TALKING.

THIS TAKES A LITTLE MORE

TIME.

AND YOU CAN KEEP THE OTHER

MEALS -- OR THE OTHER FOOD

CHOICES SORT OF SIMPLE.

ADD IN LITTLE THINGS.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO DO SWEET

POTATOES, YOU CAN GO AND BUY

IT IF YOU DON'T HAVE TIME.

Kristi: THIS IS GREAT.

I'LL TELL MY HUSBAND.

YOU CAN PUT CINNAMONS IN

PECANS.

IT IS A HALF HOMEMADE

APPROACH.

YOU CAN ADD THE CHEESE TO

ADD INTO YOUR MASHED

POTATOES, AND BLACKBERRIES

TO PUT INTO A SALAD.

IT KEEPS IT SIMPLE, BUT

STILL GOURMET.

Kristi: WITH OUR KIDS,

WITH THINK ABOUT CHRISTMAS

GIFTS.

THE FOOD AND THE GIFTS.

GIFT SHOPPING CAN BE

STRESSFUL.

I THINK IF YOU CAN MAKE IT A

LITTLE PERSONAL TO THE

RECIPIENT, THEY'RE GOING TO

FEEL REALLY GOOD AND IT IS

GOING TO STRESS-FREE THE

HOLIDAY SEASON.

IF YOU KNOW ONE OF YOUR

FRIENDS IS ALWAYS ON HER

FEET, GET HER A PAIR OF SPA

SOCKS OR NECK WRAP.

WRITE A LITTLE NOTE, USE

THIS AT NIGHT TO RELAX.

FOR A MOM THAT IS RUNNING

ALL THE TIME, A LITTLE MUG

THAT SAYS, "TAKE SOME

TIME."

SO IT GIVES A LITTLE MORE

MEANING AT THE HOLIDAYS.

THESE ARE SUPER SIMPLE

NECKLACES YOU CAN MAKE.

YOU GO TO THE CRAFT STORE

AND GET A CHARM THAT IS

SPECIFIC FOR THE PERSON

YOU'RE GIVING IT TO.

FOR THE TEA PERSON, YOU CAN

GET A LITTLE TEA PUT AND PUT

IT ON THE STRING.

AND YOU PRINTOUT ON YOUR

PRINTER, "TAKE TIME FOR

TEA."

"LET THIS NECKLACE REMIND

YOU YOU ALWAYS HAVE A FRIEND

TO HAVE TEA WITH."

THE NECKLACE ON THE STRING

WAS LESS THAN $6 IN TOTAL.

Kristi: BUT THE THOUGHT

BEHIND IT IS PRICELESS.

IT ELEVATES THE MEANING.

EVEN THE BIBLE IS SUCH A

GREAT GIFT.

Kristi: COME ON.

A FRIEND WHO IS GOING

THROUGH SOME TOUGH TIMES.

I PUT A LITTLE KEY WITH THE

STRING.

I SAID THIS IS THE KEY TO

RELIEVE YOUR STRESS.

I WOULD MARK OFF SOME

PASSAGES THAT ARE SPECIFIC

TO WHAT THAT PERSON IS GOING

THROUGH WITH A LITTLE NOTE.

IT IS A NICE GIFT TO REMIND

PEOPLE THAT THE LORD IS WITH

THEM.

THEY DON'T NEED TO STRESS.

THEY HAVE THEIR STRESS

RELIEF RIGHT IN THEIR

HANDS.

Kristi: JENNIFER HAS A

WHOLE BOOK HOW TO ENJOY A

STRESS FE-FREE LIFE.

IT IS CALLED "BALANCE YOUR

LIFE, BALANCE YOUR SCALE."

AND YOU CAN CHECK OUT HER

RECIPES WHEN YOU CHECK OUT

CBN.COM.

JENNIFER, THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

I APPRECIATE YOU.

THANK YOU.

Kristi: THIS WAS GREAT

FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON, AND

I CAN'T WAIT TO GET MORE

IDEAS.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Pat: THANKSGIVING IS

COMING UP NEXT WEEK.

Terry: YES.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

Pat: NO, I REALLY

CAN'T.

AND FOLLOWING THAT SHORTLY

IS CHRISTMAS.

THIS IS COMING TO YOU.

IT IS OVERFLOWING WITH

THANKFULNESS.

TO SHOW WE'RE THANKFUL, WE

WANT TO HELP THOSE LESS

FORTUNATE.

THIS IS COMING TO YOU.

PLEASE OPEN IT, PLEASE FILL

OUT SOMETHING.

BY THE WAY, HERE IS THE

GREAT RECIPE.

Terry: I HAVE IT ON MY

DESK.

Pat: GET IT OFF YOUR

DESK AND MAKE IT.

Terry: I'M PLANNING IT

FOR THE THANKSGIVING

WEEKEND.

Pat: YOU ARE?

Terry: OH, YES.

Pat: THEY'LL LOVE IT.

LET'S ANSWER SOME

QUESTIONS.

Terry: THIS FIRST IS

FROM JULIETTE WHO SAYS, "IF

GOD HAS ALREADY PURPOSED HIS

WILL, CAN OUR PRAYERS CHANGE

HIS WILL?"

Pat: JESUS SAID, YOU

KNOW, PRAY THAT YOUR FLIGHT

BE NOT ON THE SABBATH IN THE

WINTERTIME.

HE IS TALKING ABOUT THE

TRIBULATION COMING IN THAT

PART OF THE WORLD.

HE SAYS YOU CAN CHANGE THAT

BY YOUR

PRAYERS.

SO I THINK OUR PRAYERS -- I

DON'T UNDERSTAND THE

INTERPLAY BETWEEN US AND

GOD, BUT OUR PRAYERS DO MAKE

A DIFFERENCE.

BUT THE WILL OF GOD DOES

STAND.

HE HAS A PLAN AND A WILL

THAT WE'RE NOT GOING TO

CHANGE.

AND JESUS HIMSELF SAID, FOR

EXAMPLE, THE TIME I COME

BACK, THE DAY, NOBODY KNOWS,

NOT EVEN THE ANGELS.

THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THE

FATHER HAS KEPT TO HIMSELF.

WHAT WE DO WON'T HAVE ANY

EFFECT ON IT.

BUT DO I KNOW THE MYSTERIES,

THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN MAN

AND GOD, NO.

BUT WE KEEP TRYING TO

LEARN.

Terry: KAREN SAYS, "ARE

THERE ANY STEPS BETWEEN MAN

AND GOD THAT CAN PROTECT MAN

FROM DEMONIC INFLUENCES?"

Pat: READ THE WORD AND

SPEAK, SPEAK.

SATAN, I BIND YOU AND THE

FORCES OF EVIL.

DON'T HESITATE TO USE THOSE

WORDS AND MEAN THEM.

IN THE POWER OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

THE OTHER THING IS, BE

FILLED WITH THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

BE ANOINTED BY THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

WALK IN THE SPIRIT.

PRAY IN THE SPIRIT.

LIVE IN THE SPIRIT.

IN THAT SPIRITUAL REALM, YOU

WILL HAVE AUTHORITY OVER

DEMONIC POWER.

Terry: AND PRAISE, I

THINK, TOO.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

Terry: A VIEWER

SAYS, "IS IT EVER OKAY TO

DISOBEY YOUR AUTHORITY?"

Pat: LOOK AT WHAT THE

APOSTLE PETER SAID.

WHETHER IT IS RIGHT FOR YOU

TO OBEY GOD OR OBEY YOU,

YOU'VE GOT TO DECIDE.

THE CIVIL AUTHORITIES TOLD

THEM THEY COULDN'T SPEAK,

AND THEY SAID WE CANNOT BUT

SPEAK THE THINGS WE HAVE

SEEN AND HEARD.

Terry: GAIL SAYS, "I

HAVE VISITED CHURCHES WHERE

THE WHOLE CONGREGATION

SPEAKS IN TONGUES WITHOUT AN

INTERPRETER, DOESN'T IT SAY

NO MORE THAN ONE OR TWO

SHOULD SPEAK AND NOT WITHOUT

AN INTERPRETER.

AND ALSO DOESN'T 1

CORINTHIANS SAY EACH ARE

GIVEN DIFFERENT GIFTS, SO

WOULDN'T ALL HAVE THE GIFT

OF TONGUE TONGUES."

Terry: THERE ARE TIMES

IN A CHURCH WHERE THERE IS

PRAYER, AND PEOPLE ARE

QUIETING PRAYING --

Pat: RAG E PRAYING IN

THE SPIRIT, AND PRAYING IN

THEMSELVES.

BUT THERE IS THE ABILITY TO

BRING MESSAGES, AND THERE IS

THE ABILITY TO WORSHIP GOD

IN THE SPIRIT.

ALL OF US WHO ARE

SPIRIT-FILLED CAN PRAY IN

THE SPIRIT, IN TONGUES.

BUT IF THEY'RE PRAYING, AS

TERRY SAID TO THE LORD, AND

THEY'RE ALL PRAYING

TOGETHER, THAT'S OKAY.

BUT IF YOU'VE GOT EVERYBODY

BRINGING MESSAGES AT THE

SAME TIME, THEN IT IS

CHAOS.

I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE YOU

WERE TALKING ABOUT.

Terry: AVERY SAYS, "I'M

A HAIRDRESSER, AND I LIVE

PAPAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK, AND

THE TIPS I RECEIVE HELP GET

BY.

I WAS WONDERING, IS IT WRONG

TO CLAIM MY TIPS AT THE END

OF THE YEAR FOR TAXES?

I'M AFRAID IF I DO, I

WOULDN'T GET MUCH BACK AT

THE END OF THE YEAR?"

Pat: EVERYBODY HATES TO

PAY TAXES, BUT THE TRUTH IS,

YOUR TIPS ARE TAX ABLE

INCOME.

GOD WILL BLESS YOU.

Terry: DON'T BE AFRAID

OF GIVING GOD WHAT HE ASKS

FOR AND HE'LL GIVE YOU ALL

YOU NEED.

Pat: TAX EVASION IS ONE

OF THE THINGS THEY PUT YOU

IN JAIL FOR.

YOU WOULD

Terry: EMMA SAYS, "I'VE

BEEN STRUGGLING OVER THIS

QUESTION, IF A CHRISTIAN

DIES LOVING AND BELIEVING IN

CHRIST AND YET WITH A DRUG

ADDICTION AND THE ACT OF

USING, WOULD HE GO TO HELL

BECAUSE HIS DRUG USE IS AN

ACT.

PLEASE ANSWER."

Pat: WHY WOULD YOU TAKE

A CHANCE?

IF YOU KNOW TAKING DRUGS IS

WRONG AND YOU ABUSE YOUR

BODY.

BUT DOES GOD FORGIVE YOU?

MAYBE THE THIEF ON THE

CROSS, AND HE SAID, LORD,

REMEMBER ME.

AND JESUS SADE SAID, THIS

DAY YOU'LL BE WITH ME IN

PARADISE.

THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED A

DEATH-BED REPENTANCE.

BUT YOU'RE TAKING DRUGS AND

YOU PASS OUT AND YOU DIE --

WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?

THE ANSWER IS, I WOULDN'T DO

IT.

BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST AND YOU SHALL BE

SAVED -- THAT'S WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
