Watch the 700 Club Canada for November 21, 2012. Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON.

THANKS FOR JOINING US TODAY.

YOU KNOW, LAURA LYNN, THERE

ARE SITUATIONS IN LIFE THAT

CAN CAUSE US TO GET TO THE

WHITE KNUCKLES AND SHAKY KNEES,

WHERE YOU SAY, GOD,

CAN YOU GET ME OUT OF HERE, CAN

YOU REMEMBER ONE OF THOSE

SITUATIONS IN YOUR LIFE?

I REMEMBER OUR CAMERA MAN

SAYING, I'VE BEEN DOING THIS

SERIES ON WHAT YOU THINK

CANADA, I WAS WITH TWO CAMERA

MEN AND A COUPLE OF PRODUCTION

ASSISTANTS AND WE STARTED

WALKING THE STREETS, AND I'LL

TELL YOU, THEY DON'T LIKE

THE CAMERAS DOWN THERE AND WE

GOT SOME WATER BOTTLES THROWN

AT US SO THE CAMERA MAN WAS

LIKE, GET ME OUT OF HERE AND I

SAID, HEY, WE ARE COVERED BY

GOD, LET'S GO, SO WE GOT SOME

EXCELLENT INTERVIEWS THAT DAY,

AND YOU KNOW, YOU JUST GOT TO

BE STRONG.

I REMEMBER ONE OF THOSE

MOMENTS WHEN I WAS IN DARK, AND

I SAID, GOD, GET ME OUT OF HERE.

WAS THERE A SPIDER?

NO, I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM

WITH SPIDERS, I GOT BIT WHEN I

WAS A CHILD, SO IF YOU'RE GOING

TO EXPLOIT THAT, PRAY FOR HER.

YOU'LL SEE TWO STORIES WHERE

ORDINARY PEOPLE WERE AT A POINT

IN THEIR LIVES WHERE ONLY GOD

COULD HELP THEM.

KATIE SOUSA'S STORY PROVES

THAT GOD CAN REACH YOU, EVEN IN

SOLITARY CONFINEMENT, THE

AMAZING WAY GOD PREPARED HER

FOR HER NEW LIFE OF FREEDOM.

YOU'LL SEE WHEN LAURA LYNN

HIT THE STREETS, WHEN SHE ASKED

WHAT YOU BELIEVE CANADA AS PART

OF HER ONGOING SERIES.

ALSO THE COREYS SHARE WHAT

HAPPENED WHEN THEY

BECAME TRAPPED IN THE STORM OF

THE CENTURY, THIS IS HOW THEIR

DRAMATIC RESCUE UNFOLDED.

ON MAY 1, 2010, THE CITIZENS

OF NASHVILLE TENNESSEE BRACED

THEMSELVES FOR HISTORIC

FLOODING.

IT WAS ESSENTIALLY THE STORM

OF THE CENTURY.

JOE AND COLLEEN COREY

CHECKED THEIR PANTRY AND

REALIZED THEY HAD VERY LITTLE

FOOD AND WEREN'T PREPARED FOR

THE STORM, THEY THOUGHT THEY

COULD OUTRUN THE STORM SO

THEY RUSHED TO A NEARBY GROCERY

STORE WITH THEIR SON, CLAY.

WENT SHOPPING ON THE WAY

BACK, WE ENCOUNTERED 10 TO 15

INCHES OF WATER.

IT SURGED FROM 10 INCHES TO

A MATTER OF THREE MEET IN A

MATTER OF MINUTES.

IT WAS AN IMMEDIATE SURGE OF

WATER.

AT THAT POINT, I ROLLED THE

WINDOW DOWN AND TOLD MY WIFE

AND MY SON TO GET OUT AND ON

THE HOOD, I PULLED THEM OUT AND

GOT ON MY HOOD MYSELF.

I KNEW I HAD TIME TO MAKE

ONE PHONE CALL AND I KNEW I HAD

TOO TELL ME MOTHER ONE LAST

TIME THAT I LOVED HER IF WE

DIDN'T MAKE IT.

MY MOTHER SAID WHEN SHE GOT THE

CALL FOR ME THAT SHE

IMMEDIATELY CALLED PEOPLE IN

OUR CHURCH, THEY STARTED A

PRAYER CHAIN, OUR MINISTER, SHE

SAID ALL I THOUGHT ABOUT WAS A

POWER OF PRAYER.

A SECOND SURGE SLAMMED THE

VEHICLE.

THAT SECOND SURGE SLAMMED ME

AGAINST THE VEHICLE, I LOOKED

AT MY SON AND MY WIFE AND I

SAID, I LOVE YOU, STAY WITH THE

VEHICLE.

I WATCHED THAT VEHICLE SUCK

HIM UNDERWATER AND HE

DISAPPEARED BEFORE MY VERY EYES

AND AS CLAY AND MY 12 YEAR-OLD

SON AND I WERE SITTING ON TOP

OF THAT CHEVY TRAIL BLAZER, I

THOUGHT I'M GOING TO BECOME A

WIDOW.

MY SON WAS SAYING THE LORD'S

PRAYER OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND

THE STRENGTH IN HIS VOICE WAS

UNBELIEVABLE.

I SAID A PRAYER ON THE HOOD

OF THE CAR AND I KEPT ON

PRAYING THE WHOLE TIME BECAUSE

I KNEW IF I PRAYED, THEN WE

MIGHT BE A BETTER CHANCE OF

GETTING OUT.

AT THAT POINT IT WAS ABOUT A

MINUTE LATER THAT I HEARD MY

HUSBAND SCREAMING OUR NAME, I

TURN TODAY THE RIGHT AND I SAW

JUST JOE'S HEAD JUST ABOVE AND

THIS SWIRLING WATER.

JOE HAD GRAB ADD TREE AND

COULD SEE THE WATER WOULD

SOON OVERTAKE THE TRAIL BLAZER.

THE CURRENT KEPT GETTING

STRONGER AND KEPT RISING.

SEEING THE FEAR IN HIS FACE,

HE KEPT LOOKING AT ME

AND SAID I KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO

BE OKAY, I KNOW YOU AND CLAY

AREN'T GOING TO KEEP MUCH

LONGER.

COLLEEN AND CLAY JUMPED OFF

OF THE CAR.

HE HAD ONE CHANCE TO RESCUE

ME, HE PULLED ME OUT OF THAT

WATER WITH HIS ARM AND THREW ME

ON THIS BRANCH ABOVE HIS HEAD,

AT THAT SPLIT SECOND, I TURNED

MY HEAD TO CHECK AND SEE WHERE

MY SON WAS AND MY SON HAD

DISAPPEARED, CLAY WAS GONE AND

ALL I COULD THINK WAS HE WAS

UNDER THAT WATER.

THAT'S THE POINT I THOUGHT

I'M GOING TO DIE.

HIS FACE WAS UNDER THE

SURFACE OF THE WATER AND HIS

HAND WAS UP AND I REACHED UP

AND GRABBED HIM AND THREW HIM

ABOVE ME.

AFTER FIGHTING THE

WATER FOR AFTER AN HOUR, THE COY

FAMILY SAW THREE EMS WORKERS

WORKING THE WATER.

THE WATER THAT DAY WAS

ROUGHER THAN ANY WATER I HAVE

SEEN, I'VE GROWN UP ON THE

WATER AND NEVER HAVE I SEE SEEN

WATER THIS ROUGH.

I REMEMBER THINKING, LORD,

GIVE THEM THE STRENGTH AND THE

ABILITIES TO GET TO US IN THIS

WATER.

I REMEMBER LIEUTENANT SAM CLARK

SAID WE HAVE ONE CHANCE TO MAKE

THIS WORK, WE HAVE SECONDS, HE

SAID THIS BOAT ISN'T GOING TO

LAST MUCH LONGER.

JOE, COLLEEN AND CLAY ALL

CAUGHT THEIR LIFE JACKETS AND

WERE PULLED INTO THE BOAT WITH

A DRAG LINE, AFTER THE RESCUE,

18 MEN OR SHORE HEAVED THE ROW

BOAT BACK IN WITH A ROPE.

MY SON WAS CLINGING ON THOSE

THOSE VINES AND CLINGING ON.

WHATEVER YOU'RE GOING

THROUGH, IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT

IT IS, GOD CAN HELP YOU GO

THROW IT AS -- THROW IT

THROUGH IT AS LONG AS YOU ASK

FOR HIS HELP.

IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE FEELINGO

EXPERIENCE THAT KIND OF LOVE.

WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A

DOUBTED, GOD IS THERE, WITHOUT

A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, HE CARES

ABOUT HIS CHILDREN.

IT WAS DEVINE INTERVENTION AT

ALL POINTS IN TIME AND I CAN

TELL YOU, THAT DAY IN THAT

WATER, THOSE PRAYERS WERE

ANSWERED.

YOU KNOW THE THING THAT

REALLY AMAZES ME IS HOW THINGS

CAN SHIFT LIKE THAT, IN

NASHVILLE, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU

REMEMBER THAT FLOOD, THE WATER

ROSE WITHIN TEN SECONDS ALL THE

WAY TO THE TOP OF THAT CAR AND

JOE AND COLLEEN AND CLAY WERE

JUST TRAPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF A

RAGING RIVER BED, WOW, YOU KNOW

THE THING THAT REALLY TOUCHED

ME, EVERY TIME I SEE THE

TESTIMONIES THAT COME IN, IT

JUST LEVELS ME TO THE GROUND,

WHERE LITTLE CLAY IS, HE'S

PRAYING THE LORD'S PRAYER AND

HE GOT STRONGER AND STRONGER

AND STRONGER, MY GOD, TO THE

POINT HE SAW HIS DAD GET SUCKED

UNDER AND HE JUST KEPT PRAYING,

COLLEEN WAS LOSING IT BUT CLAY

KEPT PRAYING AND THEN JOE POPS

UP OUT OF THAT MURKY WATER ONLY

TO SEE CLAY GET SUCKED UNDER AS

WELL AND HE COULDN'T FIND HIM.

I'VE BEEN IN THOSE TYPE OF

STORMS BEFORE, MONSOON SEASON

IN ARIZONA, JESUS IS DOING THAT

TO SOME DEEP WATT AND HER

SAYING HOW DOES IT HAPPEN SO

QUICK.

YOU KNOW HOW DIFFICULT IT IS

BECAUSE WHEN COLLEEN, JOE AND

CLAY WERE ON THE ROOF, IT TOOK

18 EMERGENCY WORKERS TO PULL

THEM TO SAFETY, BUT JOE GRABBED

HIS SON, HE GRABBED HIS WIFE

AND HE GOT SUPERHUMAN STRENGTH

AND I BELIEVE THAT GOD IS NOW

DOING THE SAME THING IN YOUR

LIFE.

YOU KNOW, BRIAN, I THINK

ABOUT HOW, YOU KNOW, OUR LIVES

SOMETIMES ARE JUST -- WE NEED

TO BE RESCUED, WE'VE GOT A

RAGING STORM GOING ON IN OUR

LIVES AND SOMEBODY OUT THERE,

YOU KNOW WHEN THIS IS TALKING

ABOUT, THIS MAY NOT BE A

PHYSICAL STORM, THIS IS A STORM

INSIDE OF YOU AND EVERYTHING

HAS GONE WRONG.

I'LL TELL YOU WHOSE HAND,

THE HAND OF YOUR FATHER REACHES

OUT TODAY AND HE WILL GRAB YOU,

HE WILL GRAB YOU IN ANY MESS

THAT YOU HAVE DUG YOURSELF, HE

IS YOUR RESCUING AND HE IS

THERE FOR YOU TODAY.

JUST LIKE PRAYER, JUST LIKE

PLAY, THE LORD ANSWERS PRAYER,

THE SHORTEST PRAYER IN THE

BIBLE IS LORD SAVE ME, THAT'S

WHAT PETER PRAYED, LET'S PRAY

THAT, I WANT YOU TO PRAY THAT

PRAYER BUT AFTER YOU PRAY IT,

CALL THE NUMBER ON THE SCREEN,

TODAY'S YOUR RESCUE ON THE

COUNT OF THREE, ONE, TWO,

THREE, LORD, SAVE ME, NOW CALL

THE NUMBER ON THE SCREEN.

1-855-759-0700.

DADDY?

YEAH, BUDDY?

HOW MANY NICKELS ARE IN A

DOLLAR?

THERE ARE 20 NICKELS IN A

DOLLAR.

LOOK, HOW DO BIRDS FLY?

DOES MILK REALLY MAKE MY BONES

STRONGER?

YEAH, YEAH

DADDY, WHEN WE DIE, WILL WE

GO TO HEAVEN?

DO YOU HAVE THE ANSWER TO

LIFE'S BIGGEST QUESTION?

CALL THE 700 CLUB, WE'LL HELP

YOU FIND ANSWERS TO THE

IMPORTANT QUESTIONS LIFE BRINGS

YOUR WAY.

I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY

ABOUT ONE OF THE MAJOR

PRINCIPLES IN THE WORD OF GOD

FOR SUCCESSFUL LIVING AND THAT

IS OBEDIENCE, ECCLESIASTES 58

SAYS THAT OBEYS GOD, THEY WILL

KNOW THE RIGHT TIME AND

PROCEDURE, THEY DID NOT HAVE

THE WISDOM TO USE PROPER TIME

AND PROCEDURE, YOU SEE, BEFORE

JESUS CAME AS THE FINAL

SACRIFICE ON THE ALTAR FOR

MANKIND, THERE ARE SACRIFICIAL

OFFERINGS NECESSARY TO ATONE

FOR HUMANITY'S SIN, CANE AND

ABEL WERE TO BRING THESE

SACRIFICES BEFORE GOD, ABEL, HE

HONORED THE PROPER GIFT THAT

GOD ASKED HIM TO BRING, THE FIRT

OF HIS FLOCK, CANE DIDN'T

GET IT, HE WAS NOT OBEDIENT AND

HE DID HIS OWN THING, HE

BROUGHT A SACRIFICE THAT SEEMED

GOOD TO HIM, SOME FRUIT FROM

THE GROUND BUT IT WAS NOT WHAT

GOD HAD ASKED FOR, THE BIBLE

SAYS GOD HAS RESPECT AND REGARD

FOR ABEL'S SACRIFICE BUT NOT

FOR CANE'S, IN GENESIS 4 VERSE

6, THE LORD SAID TO CANE WHY

ARE YOU ANGRY AND WHY DO YOU

LOOK SAD AND DEPRESSED AND

DEJECTED, IF YOU DID WELL OR

GOD'S SAYING IF YOU JUST OBEY,

WILL YOU NOT BE ACCEPTED, THIS

IS A SIMPLE CONCEPT, JUST OBEY,

NEXT GOD SAYS SOMETHING THAT IS

A PROFOUND TRUTH, IT'S AN

INCREDIBLE INSIGHT, HE SAID IN E

NEXT VERSE, IF YOU DO NOT DO

WELL OR DON'T OBEY, SIN

CROUCHES AT YOUR DOOR, ITS

DESIRE IS FOR YOU, BUT YOU MUST

MASTER IT.

DID YOU HEAR THAT?

SIN CROUCHES AT YOUR DOOR, ITS

DESIRES FOR YOU BUT YOU MUST

MASTER IT.

THE ENEMY, HE IS ALWAYS LURKING

AND PROWLING AT YOUR DOOR

ENTICING YOU TO WALK IN

DISOBEDIENCE, HE HATES YOU,

WANTS TO DESTROY YOU BY PUTTING

ALL THESE QUESTIONS IN YOUR

MIND ABOUT WHY YOU SHOULD DO

THIS OR THAT, SOME PEOPLE

SAYING SERVING GOD IS JUST SO

HARD, LOOK AT ALL THOSE DUMB

RULES THAT YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW,

WELL, I HAVE A FRIEND, HE SPENT

MUCH OF HIS LIFE IN

LAWLESSNESS, HE WAS A PIMP AND

A DRUG ADDICT, COCAINE, HEROIN

AND ALCOHOL RA RAVAGED HIS

WORLD, HE SCHEMED AND STOLE AND

HE DID EXACTLY AS HE PLEASED,

AFTER YEARS AND JAIL AND BEING

HOMELESS, HE DID NOT FIND THAT

DISOBEDIENCE WAS THE SIMPLE

WAY, TODAY HE IS HEARING GOD'S

VOICE, HE'S WORKING FULL TIME

IN A RECOVERY HOME LEADING

OTHERS IN A LIFE OF SERVICE TO

JESUS.

HE WOULD TELL YOU THIS, OBEYING

GOD IS LIVING THE GOOD LIFE,

IT'S EASY COMPARED TO THE PAIN

AND SHAME OF SIN.

YOU SEE, HE HAS LEARNED THE

SECRET OF MASTERING HIS WILL,

WHEN SIN CROUCHES AT YOUR DOOR

AND DESIRES TO DESTROY YOU, YOU

MUST MASTER IT, OBEDIENCE IS

MASTERING YOUR WILL TO DISOBEY,

IT IS THE ULTIMATE YIELDING OF

YOUR WILL TO GOD'S WILL.

YOU KNOW WHEN GOD LOOKS AT

YOUR SACRIFICE, IT REALLY

MASTERS WHAT YOU GIVE TO GOD

BECAUSE GOD LOOK AT THE END

FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, HE

LOOKS AT EVERY SACRIFICE AND

THE PERFECT SACRIFICE AND THAT

IS THE PERFECT SACRIFICE OF HIS

SON, THE BIBLE SAYS ABEL GAVE

THE CHOICE CUT, HE GAVE THE FAT

OF THE LITTER, HE GAVE THE

BEST, AND WHAT CANE DID, HE

GAVE A LITTLE BIT OF FRUIT

SAYING I'M GOING TO GIVE GOD

ANYTHING, WE TRY TO LIVE THE

SAME WAY AND WE RUN FROM CHURCH

TO CHURCH, PLACE TO PLACE,

MINISTRY TO MINISTRY BUT GOD IS

SAYING ALL ON YOUR KNEES, OBEY

AND YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THE

DOORS OPEN UP.

WELL, IN JESUS NAME.

UP NEXT, LAURA LYNN IS BACK ON

THE STREET AND NOW SHE TALKS

WITH WEBSTER.

YOUR NAME IS WEBSTER, AND

YOU GOT CANCER?

YES.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU KNOWN

ABOUT THAT?

SINCE I WAS 3.

WOW, THAT'S AN AWFUL LONG

TIME, YEAH.

SO, YOU WERE SAYING THAT YOU

FEEL LIKE MAYBE YOU'RE GOING TO

PASS AWAY SOON, LIKE YOU'VE GOT

THAT FEELING?

I DON'T KNOW, THE PAIN IS A

LOT OF PAIN, RIGHT.

I TRY TO IGNORE IT BUT IT'S

STILL THERE, RIGHT.

YEAH.

SOMETIMES THEY SAY, YOU

KNOW, DO THE RIGHT THING OR

WHATEVER AND YOU BELIEVE IN

GOD, MAYBE THE PAIN WILL GO

AWAY, BUT IT'S HARD TO SEE.

WHERE'S YOUR PAIN?

ALL OVER MY BODY, IT'S LIKE

ARTHRITIS, IT'S LIKE BODY

ARTHRITIS OR SOMETHING, IT'S

WORSE NOW.

SO, WEBSTER, DO YOU FEEL

THAT YOU KNOW THAT YOUR

ETERNITY IS SECURE, THAT YOU

KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING AFTER

I PRAY WITH YOU FOR THAT.

YEAH, YOU COULD PRAY.

FATHER, I JUST PRAY FOR

WEBSTER, I PRAY, JESUS, THAT

YOU WOULD DELIVER HIM, OH, GOD,

WELCOME BACK, UP NEXT, KATIE

SOUSA ENCOUNTERS GOD IN THE

MOST EXTREME CIRCUMSTANCES.

KATIE SOUSA WANTED THE

GOOD LIFE.

I HAD ALL THESE DIFFERENT

PRECONCEIVED IDEAS ABOUT WHAT

THE GOOD LIFE IS, I THOUGHT IF

I'M WORKING IN THE

ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY, THAT'S

THE GOOD LIFE, IF I'VE GOT

MONEY, THAT'S THE GOOD LIFE, IF

I'M FAMOUS, THAT'S THE GOOD

LIFE.

KATIE PURSUED HER DREAMS Z.

I REALLY LOVED RADIO BECAUSE

I LOVED MUSIC SO MUCH AND I

THOUGHT RADIO WOULD BE FUN SO I

GOT INTO RADIO WHEN I WAS

YOUNG, 17 YEARS OLD, I WAS ON

THE AIR, I GOT A JOB AT WORKING

AT CBS TELEVISION, STARTED

DOING CAMERA WORK THERE AND RAN

AUDIO.

ACTING AND MODELING

OPPORTUNITIES FOLLOWED, BUT

DRUG USE THAT BEGAN IN HER

TEENS BECAME A FULL FLEDGED

ADDICTION THAT THREATENED

EVERYTHING.

I WAS DOING ALL THESE GREAT

THINGS ON ONE HAND, AND I'M

STILL EMPTY AND HORRIBLE EVEN

THOUGH I HAD THIS GREAT THING

HAPPENING TO ME.

IT WAS LIKE I WAS SO MISERABLE

AND EMPTY AND I DIDN'T KNOW

WHY, I WAS FILLING MY CELLS UP

WITH DRUGS AND DOING ALL THESE

DIFFERENT THINGS TO TRY TO MAKE

MYSELF FEEL SATISFIED.

KATIE WAS CHOSEN FOR A ROLE

WITH UNIVERSAL STUDIO, JUST

BEFORE HER CALL-BACK, SHE WENT

IN A DRUG BINGE.

I WENT INTO THIS MEETING

WASTE AND HAD THE HIGH GUY AT

UNIVERSAL LOOKED AT ME AND SAID

YOU LOOK AO LIKE A HEROIN

ADDICT, GET OUT OF MY OFFICE

RIGHT NOW.

I BLEW ALL MY OPPORTUNITIES, SO

I FELL FACE FIRST INTO CRIME

AND I BECAME A FULL TIME SELLER

BECAUSE I WAS ALREADY SELLING

DRUGS TO EVERYBODY AND I

STARTED COOKING METH.

SHE WAS ARRESTED 12 TIMES IN

ONE YEAR MULTIPLE TIMES FOR

MULTIPLE FELONY, FINALLY SHE

WAS ARRESTED ON FEDERAL CRIMES

MANUFACTURING NARCOTICS AND

WEAPONS VIOLATIONS, SHE WAS

SENTENCED TO 13 YEARS IN PRISON.

I'M FIGHTING WITH THE COPS,

I ATTACKED AN OFFICER, I'M

GETTING SHOOK DOWN EVERY DAY BY

THE C.O.'S THAT ARE IN THE

FACILITY BECAUSE I AM JUST

STARTING UP PROBLEMS EVERY DAY

WITH ALL THE OFFICERS AND OTHER

INMATES THERE AND I GOT THROWN

IN THE HOLE OVER AND OVER AND

OVER AGAIN WHILE I'M THERE.

FINALLY AFTER A YEAR OF

VIOLENT BEHAVIOR BEHIND BARS,

KATIE REACHED HER BREAKING

POINT.

I HAD BEEN TAKEN TO THIS

LOCK DOWN CELL THAT WASN'T LIKE

A REGULAR LOCK DOWN CELL, IT

WAS BOOKING, YOU DIDN'T GET A

MATTRESS, IT WAS COVERED WITH

URINE AND VOMIT AND FECES AND

RIGHT THERE, I GOT A

REVELATION, THIS IS GOD'S WAY

OF DEALING WITH YOU, IT TOOK

THIS LEVEL OF A LOCK DOWN CELL

TO GET YOU TO BREAK.

I'M THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN SAVE

YOU OUT OF THIS AND I

REMEMBER FINALLY HAVING IT, I

REMEMBER SLUMPING DOWN AND

THINKING I CAN'T TAKE THIS

ANYMORE.

I MEAN, I HAD BEEN FIGHTING

EVERYBODY ON THE STREETS AND

NOW I'M FIGHTING EVERYBODY INSIE

AND I DIDN'T REALIZE THAT I WAS

FIGHTING GOD HIMSELF, AND RIGHT

THEN, THE LORD SPOKE TO

ME, HE SAID I WANT YOU TO

SURRENDER TO YOUR CAPTIVITY

BECAUSE THIS IS MY PLAN AND

IT'S PERFECT.

KATIE PRAYED TO BECOME A

CHRISTIAN, SHE READ THE BIBLE

AND SHARED WHEN SHE READ WITH

HER INMATES.

THE ONLY BOOK IN THE WHOLE

PLACE WAS THE BIBLE, I REMEMBER

PICKING IT UP AND READING

THROUGH IT AND I THOUGHT, THIS

IS THE COOLEST THING I EVER

READ IN MY LIFE, I WENT FROM

THE FRONT TO THE BACK AND THE

FRONT TO THE BACK OVER AND OVER

AGAIN, THE HOLY SPIRIT BEGAN TO

POINT OUT THESE SCRIPTURES.

AS I READ THEIR STORY, THEIR

STORY IS MY STORY, IT'S A STORY

OF EVERY CON THAT I HAD EVER

KNOWN AND I STARTED GETTING

EXCITED ABOUT IT AND TEACHING

IT TO EVERYBODY I COULD TEACH

IT TO.

HER TOUGH GIRL AND

REPUTATION STARTED TO CHANGE.

EVERYBODY'S WORSHIPPING GOD,

WE'RE BAPTIZING PEOPLE

IN THE SHOWER, THIS AMAZING

BREAK OUT OF GOD IS HAPPENING

RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS

CAPTIVITY.

AFTER SERVING FIVE YEARS OF

HER 13 YEAR SENTENCE, KATIE WON

HER APPEAL AND WAS RELEASED

EARLY, SHE'S FREE NOW AND HER

VIEW OF THE GOOD LIFE HAS

CHANGED DRAMATICALLY.

THE GOOD LIFE IS HAVING YOUR

PURPOSE AND HAVING YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

THERE'S BEEN SO MANY AMAZING

THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED TO ME

BECAUSE I'VE HAD MY PURPOSE,

FOR ONE, WHEN I GOT OUT OF

PRISON, I QUICKLY DISCOVERED

THAT I DIDN'T WANT TO DO DRUGS

ANYMORE, YOU KNOW, I'M SO

FILLED UP WITH THIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, SO

EXCITED ABOUT THIS SPECIAL

THING THAT GOD'S GIVEN ME TO

DO, THIS MISSION, THE BOOK, THE

MINISTRY, THAT I HAD NO DESIRE

TO DO DRUGS.

KATIE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT THE

LESSONS SHE LEARNED ABOUT TIME

IN CAPTIVITY AND HOW GOD CAN

PREPARE PRISON FOR THEIR

PURPOSE.

HE HAS AN AMAZING PLAN WHERE

HE WANTS TO USE CAPTIVITY TO

TOTALLY GIVE US OUR DREAMS, TO

GIVE US OUR FUTURE.

HE LOVES US SO MUCH THAT HE'S

GOT A PLAN FOR IT AND IT'S WAY

BIGGER THAN WHAT WE THOUGHT IT

WAS GOING TO BE, IT'S AWESOME.

WELL, YOU KNOW, I RECENTLY

GOT A LETTER FROM A FELLOW IN

THE KINGSTON JAIL AND I WON'T

SAY YOUR NAME FOR YOUR PRIVACY,

BUT I READ YOUR STORY, I READ

ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE DONE AND

YOUR CONVICTION AND ALSO THE

SHAME AND THE REGRET THAT YOU

ARE LIVING WITH EVERY SINGLE

DAY.

I WANT YOU TO KNOW SOMETHING,

EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US, EVERY

ONE OF OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS AS

FILTHY RAGS BEFORE GOD, THE

MOST PERFECT PEOPLE, MAYBE THE

PEOPLE THAT ARE THINKING

THEY'RE DOING EVERYTHING

RIGHT, THAT'S LIKE FILTHY RAGS

BEFORE GOD, GOD FORGIVES THOSE

WHO HAVE REPENTED FOR WHAT

THEY'VE DONE, GOD HAS ALREADY

PAID THE PRICE TO COMPLETELY

WIPE AWAY YOUR SHAME, YOU DON'T

HAVE TO SPEND ONE MORE DAY IN

SHAME.

I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE

REGRET BECAUSE SOMEBODY LOST

THEIR LIFE, I UNDERSTAND THAT

YOU CAN'T GET THOSE DAYS BACK

BUT CAN I TELL YOU SOMETHING,

WHAT YOU DO TODAY WITH YOUR

LIFE WILL MATTER FOR ETERNITY,

THERE IS AN ETERNITY WHERE ALL

TEARS WILL BE WIPED AWAY,

YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO SAY

SORRY PERSONALLY ONE DAY AND

GIVE THEM A HUG AND FEEL THE

REDEMPTION AND THE FORGIVENESS,

THE AWESOME POWER OF GOD AT

WORK IN YOUR LIFE TODAY IS

MAGNIFICENT AND YOU DO NOT HAVE

TO FEEL LIKE A SECOND CLASS

CITIZEN BECAUSE YOU'RE IN JAIL

AND BECAUSE YOUR LIFE SEEMS TO

HAVE BEEN TAKEN FROM YOU, YOU

CAN TURN IT ALL AROUND, GOD IS

YOUR SOURCE, HE IS YOUR HOPE,

HE IS YOUR STRENGTH AND YOUR

REDEEMER TODAY AND THAT IS FOR

YOU, YOU CAN BANK ON IT FOR THE

REST OF YOUR LIFE.

YOU KNOW, IT'S SO TRUE,

LAURA LYNN, I WANT TO REMIND

YOU AS A PASTOR, WITH EVERY

ACTION, THERE IS A REACTION,

AND MANY TIMES, GOD CAN CLEAR

OUR PATHS BUT SOMETIMES HE

DOESN'T ALLOW THAT BECAUSE HE

WANTS US TO LIVE GRATEFUL EACH

DAY, THAT IT WAS ONLY BY HIS

GRACE -- I'VE SEEN SO MANY

PEOPLE, I GO TO THE DON JAIL

AND I GO INTO THESE PRISONS

ACROSS CANADA AS WELL AND TALK

TO MEN AND WOMEN AND THE

REALITY, GOD IS THERE BECAUSE

HE'S EVERYWHERE, NO MATTER

WHERE YOU ARE, WE REALIZE THE

POWER OF GOD IS CAPABLE OF

DOING FAR MORE THAN WE COULD

DO, AND LET ME GIVE YOU

SOMETHING ELSE, JESUS IS A

FRIEND OF SINNERS, IF HE CAME

JUST TO STOP YOU FROM SINNING,

HE FAILED, BUT IF HE STOPPED

YOU FROM DOING WORK FROM THE

THE DEVIL, IT WAS A MISSION

ACCOMPLISHED, I'M WONDERING IF

PAST, CALL US RIGHT NOW,
