LAURA LYNN, YOU KNOW,WAITING IS PROBABLY ONE OF THEMOST DIFFICULT THINGS FOR US TODO.

ARE YOU STILL WAITING ON GODFOR SOMETHING? I AM, I'M WAITING ON, YOUKNOW, PROVERBS 31, THE WOMAN,

SHE HAS SERVANT GIRLS. OH? AND I HAVE NOT YET BEENBEQUEATHED THAT GIFT, THOSE

PEOPLE THAT THEY COOK FOR YOURFAMILY, THEY DO THINGS THATHELP YOU TO LIVE YOUR LIFE TOTHE FULLEST OF GOD'S POTENTIAL,

SO I AM WAITING ON THAT.ARE YOU WAITING FOR ANYTHING? SHE'S STILL IN PROCESS, SOPRAY FOR HER.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'M WAITING FOR,FOR 35 YEARS, PEGGY KERCHOFFCOULD DO NOTHING BUT PRAY ANDWAIT, SHE WAS STRICKEN WITH A

RARE DEBILITATING DISEASE, SHEKEPT BELIEVING GOD WOULD MOVEAND SHE WOULD BE HEALED. JEREMY GARRETT LOOKED LIKE

HE HAD IT ALL, A LOVING FAMILY,A GREAT CAREER, BUT ADDICTIONNEARLY TOOK IT ALL AWAY, HE'LLSHARE HOW GOD GAVE HIM HIS LIFE

BACK AND ALSO HIS FAMILY. AND LAURA LYNN HEADS OUTINTO THE STREETS TO CONTINUEHER ONGOING SERIES ON WHAT YOU

BELIEVE, CANADA, BUT FIRST,JEREMY GARRETT HITS ROCKBOTTOM AND FINDS GOT WAITINGFOR HIM THERE.

I HAD AMAZING PARENTS, MYMOM WAS AWESOME, ALWAYS THEREFOR US, SHE STAYED AT HOME, SOSHE SACRIFICED TO BE WITH US,

AND MY DAD, HE ALWAYS CAME HOMEFROM WORK AND WAS -- HE BECAMELIKE A REAL ROLE MODEL TO ME,MY FATHER, AND LOOKING UP TO

HIM, HE COULD BE STERN AT TIMESBUT HE HAD A RESPECT, RIGHT.FIRST TIME THAT I PICKED UP ADRINK WITH THE INTENT OF, YOU

KNOW, PARTYING AND WHATEVER, IENDED UP BEING COMPLETELYINTOXICATED TO THE POINT OF,LIKE, I WAS TAKEN TO THE

HOSPITAL BY THE POLICE ANDSTOMACH PUMPED, I DON'T KNOW, IDIDN'T KNOW WHO I WAS AT ALL.WHEN I GOT BACK FROM

UNIVERSITY, I WAS WORN OUT,WANTED TO HAVE A SERIOUSRELATIONSHIP AGAIN, YOU KNOW,YOU START TO BUILD SOMETHING

TOWARDS GETTING MARRIED, SO ISTOPPED DRINKING FOR A PERIODOF TIME AND GOT IN WITH A GROUPOF PEOPLE WITH THE CHURCH AND

STARTED TO GO DOWN THAT AVENUE,AND STILL HANGING OUT WITH MYOLD FRIENDS A LITTLE BIT HEREAND THERE, I MET THERESA AND WE

GOT ENGAGED AND THEN WE GOTMARRIED, WE STARTED HAVINGCHILDREN AND, YES, AT THATPOINT, I GOT TO BEGIN TO WORK

WITH A GENTLEMAN IN MY INDUSTRYWHO WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL AND HEWAS MENTORING ME.THINGS LOOKED VERY GOOD AS FAR

AS THAT'S CONCERNED, BUT THETHING IS, IS THAT EVERYTHINGLOOKED GOOD FROM THE CURB,THINGS LOOKED GOOD FROM THE

CURB.I JUST WAS LIKE, GOD, HELP MEOUT, MAN, LIKE, YOU KNOW, IWANT TO WANT TO STOP, RIGHT,

LIKE GOD WOULD JUST HELP ME,HELP ME STOP, I BUILT THISHOUSE OF CARDS BASED ONPROFESSION, SPORTS, HAVING

CHILDREN, YOU KNOW, GETTINGMARRIED, ALL OF THOSE THINGSTHAT I ENVISIONED AS THE THINGSTHAT PEOPLE WOULD, YOU KNOW,

WANT ME TO BE OR WHAT I WOULDTHINK WOULD BE A GOOD THING TOBE, YOU KNOW.I SAY IT'S A HOUSE OF CARDS

BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, IT CAN'TSTAND FOR A LONG PERIOD OFTIME, EVENTUALLY IT'S GOOD TOFALL DOWN, SO WHEN IT DOES, IT

WAS OFFICIAL, AND WHEN IT WASWIPED OUT, IT WAS OF MY OWNDOING.I HAD GONE OUT LIKE I HAD MANY

TIMES WITH FRIENDS TO HANG OUT,PARTY, HAVE A GOOD TIME, AND IDIDN'T COME HOME, AND THEN ITJUST GOT TO A DARK PLACE WHERE

I COULDN'T GET OUT OF AND ISTOPPED CALLING AND I JUSTDIDN'T COME HOME AND IT WENT ONFOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME.

BASICALLY I JUST SHUT THE WORLDOUT.I WANT TO BE A GOOD FATHER, IWANT TO BE A GOOD ROLE MODEL

AND I WANT TO BE A GOODPERSON, I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE,AND I THINK THAT'S GOD'S GLORYIN ME.

LIKE JESUS TALKED ABOUT DOINGTHE WILL OF THE FATHER, RIGHT,SO IF I'M TURNING MY WILL OVERTO GOD AND NOW I'M GOING TO DO

WHAT HE WANTS ME TO DO INSTEADOF WHAT I WANT TO DO, YOU KNOW,THAT'S GOD'S GLORY, BUT THEAMAZING THING IS THAT'S WHAT'S

BEST FOR ME, PROGRESS, NOTPERFECTION, AND THAT IS REALLYIMPORTANT AND THAT IS REALLYHELPFUL FOR ME IS BECAUSE I

JUST -- I NEED TO KEEP MOVINGFORWARD.I'M SEEKING GOD ON A DAILYBASIS TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY.

CHOOSE LIFE, THAT MAKES ME WANTTO CHOOSE LIFE, IT'S SO EASYWHEN I LOOK AT THEM AND GO,LIKE, YOU KNOW WHAT, THAT'S

WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT, RIGHT. I LOVE MY JOB.YOU KNOW, HERE AT THE 700 CLUBCANADA, I GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO

SEE PEOPLE'S LIVES, NOT IN THEPLACE WHERE THEY'RE JUSTSTUCK, BUT THE WHOLE SPECTRUM,THE BEGINNING, THE MIDDLE AND

THE END, AND SEE HOW GODCONTINUES WITH THAT CRIMSONTHREAD OF LOVE AND GRACE TOCONNECT IT TOGETHER.

YOU KNOW, JOHN CHAPTER 3, VERSE17, IT SAYS GOD DIDN'T SEND HISSON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMNTHE WORLD BUT TO RAISE THE

LEVER, HE WAS PERFECT ON THEOUTSIDE BUT HE HAD SOME DARKSECRETS, HE HAS HAD A FULLDELIVERANCE, I GOT AN

OPPORTUNITY OUTSIDE TO SEE HISLIFE AND HE'S A FAMILY MAN, HELOVES GOD AND YOU COULD SEETHAT HE IS STILL EACH DAY

LIVING BY THE VERY FAITH THATHAS SAVED HIM BUT I WONDER IFYOU'RE IN THAT SAME POSITIONTODAY, WE HAVE SOMETHING FOR

YOU.I DON'T IN ANY WAY PRESUME THATEVERYONE LOOKING AT THISTELEVISION IS LIVING IN THAT

AFTER OF PERFECTION BUT YOU MAYBE DEALING WITH ALCOHOLISM ORDRUG ABUSE JUST LIKE JEREMY ASWELL THAT IT'S EATING YOUR LIFE

DOWN TO THE BONE, YOU HAVE TOCALL THE NUMBER ON THE SCREENAND THEN REQUEST THISPARTICULAR, THE KEYS TO

POWERFUL LIVING, ALCOHOLISMTHAT PASTOR BRIAN WAS TALKINGABOUT, TODAY IS YOUR BEST DAYAND AS LAURA LYNN COMES IN, I

BELIEVE GOD IS GOING TO SETSOMEONE FREE, WHAT A WONDERFULTESTIMONY OF HIS GRACE. THERE ARE STAGGERING

STATISTICS ABOUT THE INFLUENCEOF ALCOHOL AND DRUGS ON OURSOCIETY AND GOD IS A GOD WHOCARES ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE GOING

THROUGH, THAT CRAVING, THATDESIRE, THAT OBSESSION THAT YOUHAVE IN YOUR SOUL, IF YOU WILLHAND THAT OVER TO GOD, HE IS

ABLE TO INTERVENE IN YOURSITUATION, AND FOR YOU OUTTHERE WHO FEELS LIKE IT'SOVERWHELMING AND YOU CAN'T SEE

THAT GOOD PLACE AT THE END OFTHIS ROAD, GOD KNOWS THEANSWER, AND HE IS THE ANSWER.YOU THINK THAT YOU'VE GOT TO GO

TO THIS PROGRAM OR THAT PROGRAMAND I'VE TRIED THIS, I'VE TRIEDTHAT, IT HASN'T WORK, YOU SAY,GOD WORKS, THE POWER OF JESUS,

INVOKING THE NAME OF JESUS INYOUR SITUATION WORKS, FOLLOWINGTHE PRINCIPLES IN THE WORD,THAT WORKS.

SAM CLANCY SAID HEAVEN ISLIKE A NEW PAIR OF GLASSES, IWONDER IF YOU NEED A NEW PAIROF GLASSES TODAY, CALL THE

GO TO HEAVEN? DO YOU HAVE THE ANSWER TOLIFE'S BIGGEST QUESTION?CALL THE 700 CLUB, WE'LL HELP

YOU FIND ANSWERS TO THEIMPORTANT QUESTIONS LIFE BRINGSYOUR WAY. MATTHEW 19:19 SAYS WE ARE

TO LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR AS WELOVE OURSELVES, I CAN TIMESWHEN I DID NOT LOVE MYSELF ANDTHIS MADE IT AWFULLY HARD TO

LOVE OTHER, I HAD FAILEDMISERABLE IN SOME KEY PIECES INMY LIFE, ONE OF THE GREATESTSTRUGGLES THAT CAME UP FOR ME

WAS THE DEEP SEEDED ME TO GETAPPROVAL THROUGH PERFORMANCE,IF I DID WELL, THEN I FELTACCEPTED AND LOVED AND IF I DID

POORLY, THEN I FELT REJECTED.MY SENSE OF SELF-WORTH BECAMEENTRENCHED IN DOING THINGS THATLOOKED GOOD SO THAT I WOULD BE

RECOGNIZED AS GOOD, IT WAS ALLABOUT MY IDENTITY, AS LIFE WENTON, OF COURSE, I FOUND MYSELFIN A SEASON WHERE I HAD

APPEARED TO BE FAILINGINCREDIBLY AND THINGS WERE NOTGOING ACCORDING TO MY PLANS, IFELT DEJECTED AND I COULD NOT

FEEL LOVE FOR MYSELF ANDSUBSEQUENTLY, HOW WOULD I THENLOVE OTHERS?I REMEMBER ONE TIME HAVING LOST

A SIGNIFICANT JOB, THEREJECTION WAS OVERWHELMING AS ILAY FLAT ON MY LIVING ROOMFLOOR WITH MY HEAD BURIED IN

THE RUG, I REALIZED THAT MYPOSITION HAD COME TO MEAN ATREMENDOUS AMOUNT TO ME, IT HADSYMBOLIZED MY VALUE AND MY

WORTH.I WAS A SOMEBODY BECAUSE OFWHAT I DID, IF I FAILED, THISTRANSLATED TO MY INNER CORE

FEAR THAT I WAS NOT ACCEPTED.SADNESS SWEPT OVER ME AS IASKED MYSELF WHO AM I NOW, GOD,WHO AM I NOW?

THE MAGNITUDE OF ROMANS 5:8GAVE ME A REVELATION, BUT GODDEMONSTRATES HIS OWN LOVETOWARD US IN THAT WHILE WE WERE

STILL SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FORUS, GOD DID NOT LOVE ME BECAUSEI WAS SUCCESSFUL OR SMART ORPOWERFUL, HE HAD LOVED ME

ENOUGH TO DIE FOR ME WHEN I WASA BROKEN, UNSUCCESSFUL, RUINEDGIRL.IT HAS TAKEN ME PERSONALLY A

VERY LONG TIME ON A VERYEXTENSIVE ROAD OF DISCOVERY TOSEE THAT GOD REMAINED FAITHFULWHEN I WAS NOT FAITHFUL, HE

LOVED ME WITH ALL MY ISSUES ANDALL MY FAILURES, I HAVE LEARNEDTHAT I CANNOT BE RIGHTEOUSENOUGH FOR GOD, MY ONLY HOPE IS

TO RECEIVE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESSAND GRAFT IT INTO THE CARCASSOF MY SOUL, SO NOW IF I'MHAVING A BAD DAY OR A SITUATION

IN MY LIFE IS NOT WORKING OUTAND I FEEL LIKE I FAILED, I CANSTILL LOVE MYSELF BECAUSE JESUSLOVES ME JUST THE WAY I AM, HE

DIED FOR ME EVEN IN MY WORSTSTATE, THIS THEN HELPS ME TOLOVE OTHERS IN THEIR WORSTPLACES.

IF GOD HAS EXTENDED SUCH GRACETOWARDS ME, THEN I AM COMPELLEDTO EXTEND THIS SAME GRACE TOOTHERS.

WE NOT ONLY NEED TO LOVEOURSELVES BUT ALSO LIKEOURSELVES TOO.SOMETIMES WE JUST NEED TO GET

OVER IT WHEN WE FAIL, I MEAN,JUST STOP THINKING THAT WE NEEDTO BE PERFECT BECAUSE THAT'SIMPOSSIBLE.

BECOME COMFORTABLE WITH YOURHUMANITY AND GOD'S DIVINITY. YOU KNOW, THAT'S SO TRUE, IBELIEVE THAT LAURA LYNN IS

TALKING ABOUT WHAT A LOT OF USBATTLE WITH, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOUARE IDENTIFIED BEINGSIGNIFICANT BY WHAT YOU DO,

JESUS SAID A SPARROW DOESN'TFALL TO THE GROUND UNLESS YOURHEAVENLY FATHER KNOWING IT, THEHAIRS ON YOUR HEAD ARE

NUMBERED, HE HAS SUCH ANINCREDIBLE MENTALITY THAT HECAN KEEP 6 BILLION PEOPLE INTRACK, THAT HE CAN FIGURE OUT

THE COURSE OF ACTION OF ALL THEHUMAN BEINGS ON EARTH ANDHAVING DONE THAT, HE KNOWSEVERY CELL IN THEIR BODY AND HE

KNOWS THE NUMBER OF HAIRS ONTHEIR HEAD. WELCOME BACK, UP NEXT, ANINCREDIBLE STORY OF

PERSEVERANCE AS 35 YEARS OFPRAYERS ARE ANSWERED FROM ONEWOMAN. PEGGY KERCHOFF IS NOT YOUR

TYPICAL GRANDMOTHER, SHE RIDESFOUR WHEELERS, MANAGES A RANCHAND TAKES CARE OF FOURGENERATIONS BUT FOR 35 YEARS,

SHE WAS PRISONER TO ADEBILITATING DISEASE CALLEDMYASTHENIA GRAVIS. IT'S THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

LOSES CONTROL, CHOOSES A TARGETTHAT UNFORTUNATELY IS NOT ANINVADING GERM BUT IS IN FACTTHE CONNECTION BETWEEN YOUR

NERVES AND YOUR MUSCLES. I HAD ONE OF THE WORST CASESKNOWN, A TYPICAL DAY FOR ME WASON THE COUCH AT HOME WITH MY

PHONE NEXT TO ME, PILES OFBOOKS, A TRASH CAN BESIDE MYBED THAT WAS MY POTTY BECAUSE ICOULDN'T MAKE IT TO THE

BATHROOM. AS A YOUNG WOMAN, PEGGY WASOUTGOING AND ATHLETIC AND SHEWAS ALSO A CHRISTIAN AND

DEVOTED TO HER HUSBAND ED, SHEHAD A CHILD, DURING THEPREGNANCY, PEGGY NOTICEDSOMETHING WASN'T RIGHT.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS WRONGWITH ME THEN, I COULDN'T GET UPOUT OF THE CHAIR, AS TIME WENTON, MORE AND MORE SYMPTOMS,

DROPPING THINGS, DOUBLE VISION,WEAKNESS. SHE GAVE BIRTH TO JENNIFER,FOUR YEARS LATER, CRAIG WAS

BORN, GRADUALLY, PEGGY'SCONDITION GOT WORSE AND HERDOCTORS COULDN'T FIGURE IT OUT. BECAUSE MY MOUTH WAS SO WEAK

AND I WOULD HAVE TO HOLD ITTOGETHER LIKE THIS TO TALK. AFTER 10 YEARS, SHE WASFINALLY DIAGNOSED WITH

MYASTHENIA GRAVIS, AT THE TIME,LITTLE WAS KNOWN ABOUT THEDISEASE AND NO CURE HAD BEENFOUND TO PEGGY WAS PUT ON

STEROIDS TO HELP STRENGTHENHER, THE KERCHOFFS WEREENCOURAGED TO FINALLY KNOW WHATWAS WRONG.

THEY HAD INDICATED THAT THEYHAD TREATMENTS THAT COULDMITIGATE, CONTROL THE DISEASEAND IT WOULD BE VERY LIMITED,

BUT IT WOULD ALLOW HER TOREASONABLY FUNCTION. DURING A PRAYER TIME, PEGGYSAYS SHE HEARD GOD SPEAK TO HER.

I HEARD THESE WORDS AND ITSAID, TAKE HOLD OF MY WORDS. PEGGY COMMITTED TO LEARNINGAND MEDITATING ON SCRIPTURE.

I HAD TO KEEP HOLDING ON TOTHE LORD FOR MY LIFE, THE WORDRESCUED ME.IT BECAME LIFE TO ME, THE WORDS

CAME ALIVE. BUT THE YEARS WENT ON ANDSHE DIDN'T GET BETTER, ONLYWORSE.

PEGGY TRIED HER BEST TO KEEPHER FAITH IN GOD BUT SOMETIMESIT WAS JUST TOO HARD. ONE DAY, I ASKED GOD, WHAT

HAVE I DONE TO DESERVE THIS?WHY ME?WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?DID I SIN?

BUT PEGGY WAS DETERMINED TOPUT HER HOPE IN GOD. I HAD TO CONTINUE TO STAYINTO THE WORD OF GOD, TO

CONTINUE TO BELIEVE THAT JESUSWOULD RESCUE ME. THEY EVENTUALLY FOUND ASPECIALIST IN HOUSTON, TEXAS,

HE URGED PEGGY TO GO ANINVASIVE SURGERY FOLLOWED BY APLASMA EXCHANGE PROCEDURE. IT IS A PECULIAR TECHNIQUE

WHICH YOU DRAW BLOOD OUT OF ONEARM, PUT IT THROUGH A MACHINETHAT IS ESSENTIALLY A VERYFANCY WASHING MACHINE, IT TAKES

OUT THE PLASMA FRACTION OF THEBLOOD, LEAVES THE BLOOD ITSELFAND THEN YOU GIVE THE BLOODBACK IN A DIFFERENT I.V. IN THE

OTHER ARM. IN DESPERATION, PEGGY AGREEDTO THE TREATMENTS BUT NEITHERTHE SURGERY OR THE PLASMA

EXCHANGE PUT HER INTOREMISSION, AS TIME PAST, SHEBECAME A GRANDMOTHER AND THENSHE MET DR. BLUM.

I'VE SEEN MANY CASES OFTHIS, PEGGY'S WAS ONE OF THEWORST IF NOT THE WORST THATI'VE SEEN IN THAT ENTIRE TIME.

MOST PATIENTS THAT HAVE IT ANYWORSE THAN THAT GO AHEAD ANDDIE. DR. BLUM ORDERED ANOTHER

PLASMA EXCHANGE AND PEGGYENDURED THE PROCEDURE ONCEAGAIN. I NEVER WANTED TO SURRENDER

TO DEATH.I COULD NOT LEAVE MY HUSBANDAND MY CHILDREN.I HAD TO FIGHT.

SLOWLY, PEGGY SAW CHANGES. I DIDN'T HAVE JUST ONEMOMENT THAT SAYS, OKAY, I'MWELL, IT WAS JUST VERY GRADUAL,

I JUST STARTED GETTING STRENGTHAND NOT FEELING SO BAD.MY SON AND HIS WIFE AND THREELITTLE GIRLS CAME TO LIVE WITH

US AND THEY WERE VERY ACTIVE,AND I STARTED BEING ABLE TOKEEP UP WITH THEM. 35 YEARS AFTER THE INITIAL

SYMPTOMS APPEARED, DR. BLUMDECLARED PEGGY IN REMISSION. PEGGY WAS IN BAD SHAPE, IDIDN'T THINK SHE WAS GOING TO

RECOVER, SHE DEFINITELY DID ANDTHAT IS A VERY RARE OCCURRENCE. MEDICALLY, PEGGY IS INREMISSION BUT SHE BELIEVES GOD

HAS TOTALLY HEALED HER. I'VE HAD MANY TIMES THAT ITHOUGHT, THIS IS GREAT, BUT ITMIGHT HIT ME AGAIN, OR I MIGHT

BE SICK AGAIN, BUT I'VE HAD TOHOLD TO THAT ONE SCRIPTURE THATSAYS, AFFLICTION SHALL NOT COMETHE SECOND TIME, AS I PUT THAT

WORD IN ME THAT TOLD ME ABOUTTHE CROSS, THE FAITH STARTEDGROWING IN ME TO CHANGE MYPHYSICAL BODY.

NOW NOTHING HOLDS PEGGY BACKFROM LIVING HER LIFE FULLY. I CAN RIDE 4 WHEELERS ANDDRIVE THE TRACTOR, MY FAVORITE

THING IS TO WALK WITH MYHUSBAND ALONG THE CREEK.MY LIFE DOES REFLECT GOD'SFAITHFULNESS, JUST DON'T GIVE

UP.AS LONG AS THERE'S BREATH, ASLONG AS THERE'S LIFE, CHOOSELIFE.

YOU KNOW, IF THAT DOESN'TSTIR YOUR FAITH UP, I DON'TKNOW WHAT WILL.35 YEARS WITH DOCTORS SAYING

THIS SHOULD HAVE KILLED HER,SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN GONE, ANDPEGGY SAID YOU NEVER GIVE UP ASLONG AS THERE'S BREATH.

CAN YOU REMEMBER WHAT JOEL FELTLIKE, HE LOST HIS CHILDREN, HISLIVESTOCK, AND HE WAS SORROWTESTED BUT JOEL NEVER GAVE UP,

HE SAID THOUGH YOU SLAY ME, YETWILL I TRUST YOU, GOD WANTS USTO COME INTO A PLACE OF SUCHSUBMISSION AND SURRENDER TO HIM

THAT WE JUST TRUST HIM WITH OURVERY LIVES AND YOU KNOW WHAT,HE'S A MIRACLE WORKING GOD, IFYOU'RE FACING A SITUATION TODAY

WHERE YOU FEEL LIKE, YOU KNOW,YOU'VE HAD THAT DIAGNOSIS, THEDOCTORS ARE SAYING IT'S NOTLOOKING FOR GOOD, GUESS WHAT,

IT'S NOT THE END, YOU RISE UPIN FAITH, YOU TAKE YOUR FAITHTODAY AND YOU JUST GIVEEVERYTHING THAT YOU'VE GOT TO

GOD AND YOU TRUST HIM FOREVERYTHING THAT YOU'RE WORTH.I WANT TO PRAY FOR SOMEONERIGHT NOW AND YOU KNOW THAT IT
