Lee: THE FORGOTTEN

VICTIMS OF THE ARAB SPRING.

ETS THE WEAKEST AND THE

MOST VULNERABLE THAT SUFFER

THE MOST.

Lee: PLUS, THE MIRACLE

THAT GOT THIS KID BACK ON

HIS FEET.

I KNEW THAT GOD CARED

ABOUT ME AND HE WANTED TO

PROTECT ME.

Lee: AND THEN WE'LL

SHOW YOU HOW TO DECK THE

HALLS THE SOUTHERN LIVING

WAY, ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WAS A

MODERATE, THE PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES, BUT THE

EGYPTIAN PEOPLE, THE

NEWSPAPERS, THE SCHOLARS,

AND MANY PEOPLE ON THE

STREET, ARE SAYING HE IS

WORSE THAN THE PHARAOHS.

HE IS A DICTATOR, HE IS

TRYING TO TAKE ABSOLUTE

POWER, AND THEY'RE OUT IN

THE STREETS PROTESTING IN TA

HIR SQUARE IN CAIRO.

Terry: THE EGYPTIANS

ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE

GROWING POWER OF ISLAMISTS

IN THE GROWING COUNTRY, AND

WHAT THEY COULD DO TO OUR

COUNTRY.

Reporter: EGYPT TODAY

IS DIVIDED AND IN CRISIS.

TO PROTEST MORSI'S DECREES,

SOME OF THE NEWSPAPERS RAN

FRONT-PAGE HEADLINES THAT

SAID NO TO DICTATORSHIP.

WE TOOK THE POSITION OF

DISSPENDING THE PRINT OF THE

NEWSPAPER TOMORROW AS

OBJECTIONS TO THE ARTICLES

IN THE CONSTITUTION THAT

LIMIT FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

Reporter: LAST WEEK,

MORSI RUSHED THROUGH A DRAFT

CONSTITUTION, WRITTEN MOSTLY

BY ISLAMISTS.

MANY CHRISTIANS BOYCOTTED

THE CONSTITUTION.

IT GIVES MUSLIMS

UNPRECEDENTED POWER TO

IMPLEMENT SHARI'A LAW.

AND MORSI GAVE HIMSELF

SWEEPING NEW POWERS AND

IMMUNITY FROM JUDICIAL

REVIEW.

THAT LED TO A CRISIS WITH

EGYPT'S JUDGES, WHO WENT ON

STRIKE.

FOR THE JUDICIARY TO

SUSPEND ITS DAILY WORK IS A

BITTER, STRONG, AND CLEAR

MESSAGE.

WE HAVE NEVER SEEN

MEMBERS OF THE

CONSTITUTIONAL CODE BE

BANNED FROM ENTERING THE

CODE TO PROCEED WITH

SESSIONS AND TO VIEW CASES.

THAT PRESENTS A HUGE

PROBLEM.

IN OTHER WORDS, THAT A

PUBLIC OF EGYPT HAS BEEN

RAPED BY THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

Reporter: MORSI'S

ACTIONS HAVE LED MANY

EGYPTIANS TO WONDER IF THEY

TRADED ONE DICTATOR FOR

ANOTHER.

WITHIN SIX MONTHS FROM

THE DAY MORSI WAS SWORN IN,

HE TOOK ALL OF THE POSSIBLE

POWERS OF THE COUNTRY INTO

HIS HANDS.

Reporter: FORMER

ISRAELI AMBASSADOR TO EGYPT

SAYS MORSI AND THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD HAVE REUNITED

THOSE WHO FEEL THE

REVOLUTION THAS BEEN

HIJACKED.

THEY MADE A RESOLUTION,

AND SACRIFICED THEMSELVES,

AND NOW IN EUROPE AND THE

DICTATORSHIP, THEY KEEP

THEM.

Reporter: HE WARNS THIS

DIVISION IN EGYPT COULD LEAD

TO VIOLENCE.

HE IS ALSO BAFFLED AT THE

RELATIVE SILENCE OF THE

U.S.

THE LAST TWO OR THREE

COMMUNICATIONS THEY

PUBLISHED FROM THE WHITE

HOUSE AND THE POPULAR

STATES, WAS THAT THEY ARE

GIVING SUPPORT TO THE MUSLIM

BROTHERS.

Reporter: THE U.S. AND

THE REGION COULD BE DEALING

WITH THIS PROBLEM FOR A LONG

TIME.

MASEL'S ADVICE?

WE SHOULD PRAY THAT IT

WILL FINISH IN A WAY THAT

DEMOCRACY WILL PREVAIL.

Reporter: IN

THE

MEANTIME, THE FUTURE OF

EGYPT HANGS IN THE BALANCE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Pat: THANKS, CHRIS.

WE HAVE BEEN WARNING ON THIS

PROGRAM ABOUT THE DANGERS OF

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

THEY TRIED TO ASSASSINATE

ONE OF THEIR PRIME

MINISTERS, PRESIDENT NASSAR,

AND HE LASHED BACK, AND, YOU

KNOW, WENT AFTER THEM.

SAME THING WITH HAZ HAFA.

HE WENT AFTER THE

BROTHERHOOD, AND HE REALIZED

THE DANGERS.

BUT THE UNITED STATES JUST

BLINDLY EMBRACES THEM, OH,

THIS IS A MODERATE GROUP AND

WE NEED TO HAVE THEIR

ADVICE.

AND THEY COME INTO THE

COUNCILS IN THE WHITE HOUSE

TO ADVICE ON OUR POLICY.

THEY WANT A CALAFATE, THEY

WANT TO RETURN TO SHARI'A

LAW.

THEY WANT TO BLOT OUT THE

LAWS GOVERNING WOMEN.

THE REASON THEY HAD A

SECTION IN THROUGH

CONSTITUTION HAVING TO DO

WITH SEX TRAFFICKING, AND

THE ISLAMISTS DIDN'T WANT

THAT BECAUSE THEY WANTED

CHILD BRIDES.

SO THEY DIDN'T WANT TO BE

RESTRICTED FROM DOING THAT.

IT'S A TERRIBLE THING.

AND, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT

THE UNITED STATES NEEDS TO

TAKE A STAND.

BUT WE'VE GOT A PRESIDENT

AND THE SECRETARY OF STATE

WHO DON'T WANT TO TAKE A

STAND, AS THEY SHOULD,

AGAINST AN OBVIOUS EVIL.

IF THAT ISN'T BAD ENOUGH,

THE UNITED STATES MAY SOON

GET INVOLVED IN ANOTHER

CRIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY.

Lee: PAT, THE WHITE

HOUSE AND ITS ALLIES ARE

CONSIDERING MILITARY OPTIONS

AGAINST SYRIA, IF IT USES

CHEMICAL WEAPONS AGAINST ITS

OWN PEOPLE.

THE U.S. SAYS THAT WOULD BE,

QUOTE,"CROSSING A RED

LINE."

NAT TO IS SAID TO APPROVE

SENDING MISSILES TO TURKEY

TO PROTECT FROM A POSSIBLE

MISSILE ATTACK FROM SYRIA.

SYRIA'S FOREIGN MINISTER

SAYS THE GOVERNMENT WOULD

NOT USE SUCH WEAPONS ON ITS

OWN PEOPLE UNDER ANY

CIRCUMSTANCE.

BUT SECRETARY OF STATE

HILLARY CLINTON SAYS THE

SYRIAN OPPOSITION IS GETTING

STRONGER.

I DON'T KNOW THAT YOU CAN

SAY THAT FOR THE ENTIRE

COUNTRY IT IS YET AT A

TIPPING POINT.

BUT IT CERTAINLY SEEMS THAT

THE REGIME WILL BE MUCH

HARDER PRESSED IN THE NEXT

MONTHS.

Lee: WHITE HOUSE

SPOKESMAN JAY CARNE WARNED

BASHAR al-ASSAD,

QUOTE,"THE WORLD IS

WATCHING, AND THAT HE WILL

BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS

ACTIONS."

PAT?

Pat: WHAT A JOKE.

HE IS GOING TO BE HELD

ACCOUNTABLE?

WHO IS GOING TO HOLD HIM

ACCOUNTABLE AND UNDER WHAT

TERMS?

THAT'S NONSENSE.

IN ORDER FOR THE UNITED

STATES TO GET IN THERE AND

DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE

MISSILES WILL PROBABLY TAKE

85,000 TROOPS ON THE

GROUND.

THE SYRIAN MILITARY IS

WELL-ARMED AND SO FAR LOYAL

TO THE PRESIDENT.

FOR THE UNITED STATES TO

COME IN AND TRY TO DO

ANYTHING, IT WOULD BE

RIDICULOUS.

WE CAN'T DO IT.

AT THE SAME TIME, WE WERE ON

THE HORNS OF A DILEMMA.

WE DIDN'T WANT TO BACK THOSE

REBELS BECAUSE NOBODY KNEW

EXACTLY WHO THEY WERE.

THERE ARE SERIOUS SUSPICIONS

THEY MAY BE PART OF

AL-QAEDA.

WE'RE BEING FACED WITH A

NUMBER OF CHALLENGES.

THE MAJOR ONE, PROBABLY, IN

AMERICA HAS TO DO WITH THE

NEGOTIATIONS ON THIS

SO-CALLED FISCAL CLIFF.

WE CAN'T SEEM TO HAVE

LEADERS WHO WANT TO PUT

AMERICA FIRST.

ALL THEY DO IS PUT THEIR OWN

POLITICAL IDEOLOGY FIRST.

AND THERE SEEMS TO BE, AT

LEAST AS FAR AS THE WHITE

HOUSE GOES, NO POSSIBILITY

OF COMPRISE.

AND YOU THINK OF SOME OF THE

HORRIBLE THINGS WE'RE

SPENDING MONEY ON, BUT WE

CANNOT, AS A NATION, TAKE

OUR LEADERSHIP ROLE IN THE

WORLD IF WE DON'T HAVE THE

MONEY TO DO IT.

IF WE'RE OUT OF MONEY, THAT

MEANS WE'RE OUT OF POWER.

AND THAT'S NOT A GOOD

SITUATION.

LEE?

Lee: THE WHITE HOUSE

QUICKLY REJECTED A

REPUBLICAN PROPOSAL ON THE

FISCAL CLIFF STANDOFF.

THE 10-YEAR, $2.2 TRILLION

PROPOSAL IS SIMILAR TO WHAT

HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER

SUPPORTED LAST YEAR.

BUT DEMOCRATS WANT MORE

TAXES AND FEWER SPENDING

CUTS, AND A WHITE HOUSE

SPOKESMAN IS EVEN

THREATENING A FISCAL FREE

FALL, HEATHER CELLS HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: THE NEW

REPUBLICAN OFFER CALLED FOR

RAISING THE ELIGIBILITY AGE

FOR MEDICARE, AND LOWERING

COST OF LIVING HIKES FOR

SOCIAL SECURITY.

IT WOULD ALSO RAISE

$800 BILLION IN HIGHER TEX

REVENUE, AND NOTABLY, IT

DOES NOT RAISE TAX RATES FOR

THE WEALTHY.

THE WHITE HOUSE VIEWS THAT

AS UNACCEPTABLE.

YESTERDAY DURING A PHOTO OP,

THE PRESIDENT REFUSED TO

COMMENT ON THE G.O.P. PLAN.

BUT A SENIOR WHITE HOUSE

OFFICIAL CALLS THE PLAN A

STEP BACKWARDS, SAYING

REPUBLICANS MUST AGREE TO

HIGHER TAX RATES FOR THE

WEALTHY OR THE NATION WILL

BLAME THEM FOR TAKING US

OVER THE FISCAL CLIFF.

AND DEMOCRATS DON'T LIKE THE

G.O.P.'s PROPOSAL TO CUT

MEDICARE AND SOCIAL

SECURITY.

SOME ECONOMISTS BELIEVE

WASHINGTON'S GRIDLOCK IS

HURTING THE ECONOMY, AND

ESTIMATE AT LEAST 200,000

FEWER JOBS HAVE BEEN CREATED

THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF

UNCERTAINTY AROUND THE

FISCAL CLIFF.

WALL STREET SO FAR REMAINS

OPTMISTIC THAT A DEAL WILL

BE STRUCK, BUT TH SO THE

LACK OF PROGRESS HAS NOT LED

TO A MARKET CRUNCH.

A PERSON FROM TEXAS SAYS SHE

GOT ANGRY OVER THE WEEKEND

WATCHING THE TALK SHOWS.

IF I WAS WORKING THE WAY

CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT

WERE WORKING, I WOULD

PROBABLY LOOSE MY JOB.

Reporter: PAIGE IS

STARTING A PETITION THAT

WOULD HALT

ALL

PAYCHECKS AND

HEALTH BENEFITS FOR MEMBERS

OF CONGRESS UNLESS THEY

AVOID THE FISCAL CLIFF.

Lee: MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS TECHNICALLY HAVE

UNTIL THE END OF

THE YEAR TO

BROKER A DEAL, BUT HOUSE

MEMBERS ARE SCHEDULED TO

BREAK FOR CHRISTMAS A WEEK

FROM FRIDAY.

SO, PAT, MANY BELIEVE THE

CRISIS MUST BE SETTLED IN

THE NEXT 10 DAYS.

ARE YOU HOLDING OUT MUCH

HOPE FOR A DEAL?

Pat: I'M REALLY NOT,

LEE.

IN ALL SERIOUSNESS, IF OBAMA

IS INSISTING ON RAISING SOME

TAX RATES ON WEALTHY PEOPLE,

I THINK CHUCK SCHUMER, ON

THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE, SAID WE

GO FOR A MILLION DOLLARS A

YEAR.

YOU RAISE THE TAX RATES ON

PEOPLE MAKING OVER A MILLION

DOLLARS A YEAR, AND YOU TAKE

IT UP FIVE POINTS OR

SOMETHING.

IT IS A SYMBOLIC THING.

AND OBAMA WOULD SAY, LOOK, I

WON.

BUT YOU TAKE AWAY FROM HIM

HIS MAJOR WEAPON, AND HE

SAYS WELL THE CONGRESS IS

WANTING TO DEFEND THE

MILLIONAIRES, SO YOU TAKE

THAT AWAY FROM HIM.

AND THEN WHAT HAS HE GOT?

HE THEN HAS GOT TO DEFEND

SPENDING MONEY TO DISCOVER

WHAT THE DRUGS ARE ON

CHINESE PROSTITUTES AND SUCH

NONSENSE.

IT IS INSANE WHAT WE'RE

DOING.

AND, OF COURSE, IT IS COMMON

SENSE TO RAISE THE

ELIGIBILITY AGE OF SOCIAL

SECURITY.

WE DON'T DIE AT 65 ANY

LONGER.

THE EXPECTANCY RATE IS 78.

PEOPLE DON'T DIE, AND THEY

DON'T GET INFIRMED AT AN

EARLIER AGE.

THE AGE LIMITS WHEN

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT WAS IN

OFFICE WERE MUCH, MUCH

DIFFERENT THAN THEY ARE

NOW.

THERE IS NO REASON THAT WE

COULDN'T ALTER THE

ELIGIBILITY RATE FOR SOCIAL

SECURITY AND MEDICARE.

IF PEOPLE WHO WOULD JUST HAD

SOME COMMON BUSINESS SENSE

WOULD COME TOGETHER AND

WOULD SAY, LET'S CUT A DEAL

THAT WOULD MAKE SOME SENSE.

LET'S NOT HURT THE ECONOMY.

LET'S WORK WITH THIS GROUP

AND TAKE AWAY THINGS THAT

DON'T MATTER.

I'LL TELL YOU ONE THING THAT

WOULD LEAD TO SOME HOUSES,

THE MORTGAGE INTEREST

REDUCTION.

THE CANADIANS NOW HAVE A

VERY ROBUST HOUSING BECAUSE

THEY DON'T HAVE A DEDUCTION

FOR MORTGAGE INTEREST.

I DON'T THINK IT IS

SOMETHING WE NEED AS

AMERICANS.

I THINK THAT THE AMERICAN

REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY WILL DO

VERY WELL WITHOUT THAT

PROVISION, AND THAT'S

SOMETHING THAT WOULD SAVE A

GREAT DEAL OF MONEY FOR THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

BUT THE TIME HAS COME THAT

THIS IDEOLOGY KASAM GETS

BRIDGED.

AND THE TROUBLE IS THE

PRESIDENT NOW SAYS I'M GOING

TO HAWAII.

I'M GOING ON VACATION.

IS HE?

IN THE MIDDLE OF ONE OF THE

GREATEST ECONOMIC CRISES THE

COUNTRY HAS FACED IN

DECADES?

HE IS GOING TO SURF AND SWIM

IN HAWAII?

LEE?

Lee: A

LEADING PRO-LIFE

LOBBYIST SAYS SOME PLANNED

PARENTHOOD ORGANIZATIONS ARE

QUILTING THE ORGANIZATION

RATHER THAN BEING FORCED TO

DO ABORTIONS.

Reporter: MARJORIE IS

ONE OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S

BIGGEST ENEMIES.

HER ORGANIZATION IS

DEDICATED TO ELECTING MORE

PRO-LIFE WOMEN HERE AND

NATIONWIDE.

SHE HAS BEEN HIGHLIGHTING

THAT SEVERAL AFFILIATES HAVE

QUIT PLANNED PARENTHOOD,

RATHER THAN GO WITH THE

MANDATE THAT ALL OF THE

CLINICS MUST PROVIDE

ABORTIONS BY 2013.

ONE IN IOWA COMPLAINED

ABOUT THIS AND OTHER GOINGS

ON IN THAT CLINIC, AND SHE

WAS IMMEDIATELY BOOTED OUT.

AND NOW SHE IS ACTUALLY

HELPING US IN OUR DEFUND

PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

THEY BOOT PEOPLE OUT AND

BRAG ABOUT IT, AND SAY WE

DID IT, AND SAY YOU JUST

TAKE IT.

Reporter: IT GALLS HER

HOW MUCH TAXPAYERS MONEY

GOES TO THE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD ORGANIZATION.

IT IS AROUND $300,000 A

YEAR.

WE'RE PAYING A MILLION

DOLLARS TO THEM EVERY DAY.

TODAY, TOMORROW, THE NEXT

DAY, WE'RE PAYING THEM A

MILLION DOLLARS TO RUN THE

ORGANIZATION.

Reporter: THE OTHER DAY

SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN

SUGGESTED HE AND OTHER

REPUBLICANS NEED TO SHUT UP

ABOUT ABORTION.

PRESUMABLY BECAUSE HE THINKS

IT IS A LOSING ISSUE.

SHE SAYS THEY FIRST LAUGHED

AND THEN GOT OUTRAGED.

BECAUSE TOP REPUBLICANS

NEVER MENTIONED ABORTION,

MUCH LESS FOUGHT IT.

THERE WAS WAS STRICT AND

SEVERE DISCIPLINE, ONLY TALK

ABOUT JOBS AND THE ECONOMY.

Reporter: SHE SAYS THE

SILENCE ABOUT ABORTION WAS

DEPRESSING.

EVERYONE WHO IS FIGHTING

A CAUSE SAYS SILENCE IS

COMPLICITY.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

MAJOR ELECTION WATCH PARTIES

NOVEMBER 6 WAS CO-SPONSORED

BY

THE S.P.A. LIST.

AS OBAMA WON, THE PARTYING

PARTYING CEASED.

WHEN OBAMA WON, WE

STARTED CRYING.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

CHILDREN, WHO WE'RE

FIGHTING

FOR THEM.

AND TO SEE

IT ALL COLLAPSE,

OF COURSE YOU'RE GOING TO BE

VERY

SAD.

GUYS ARE MAD, THE GIRLS ARE

CRYING.

Reporter: INSURANCE

ABOUT 2 A.M. THAT NIGHT,

PEOPLE GATHERED, PRAYED, AND

COLLECTIVELY DECIDED THEY

MUST FIGHT ON.

WE'RE GOING TO KEEP ON

GOING, AND WE'RE NOT GOING

TO STOP UNTIL EVERY CHILD IS

SAVED.

Reporter: PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

Lee: PAT, SHE IS WAGING

A COURAGEOUS FIGHT.

GOING BACK TO THE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD CLINICS, THAT IS

ENCOURAGING THAT SOME WANT

TO GET OUT OF THE ABORTION

BUSINESS.

Pat: THEY SHOULD, LEE,

BECAUSE THERE IS A LAWSUIT

UNDER WAY IN CALIFORNIA AND

ALSO ONE IN TEXAS.

YOU DON'T HEAR MUCH ABOUT

THAT.

THE ACLJ IS BRINGING THE

LAWSUIT, AND A COUPLE OF

WHISTLE-BLOWERS AT HIGH

LEVELS IN THE ORGANIZATION

OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD HAVE

REVEALED THAT THE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD HAS TRIPLE BILLED

THE GOVERNMENT FOR

PROCEDURES THEY PERFORMED.

AND THE AMOUNT OF MONEY IS

IN THE TENS AND TENS OF

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

FRAUDULENT CLAIMS FOR

PROCEDURES THAT WERE NOT

PERFORMED NOW, LEE, AS I

UNDERSTAND IT, AS MUCH AS

$500 MILLION OF TAXPAYER

MONEY IS BEING GIVEN EVERY

YEAR TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

NOW, YOU TALK ABOUT WE DON'T

WANT TO MAKE CUTS.

WELL, WHY CAN'T YOU CUT

THAT.

THAT IS AN UNNECESSARY

EXPENSE.

AND IF THE PRIVATE SECTOR

WANTS TO FUND PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, THEY CAN BE MY

GUEST, BECAUSE THIS IS A

FREE COUNTRY.

BUT AS FAR AS THE TAXPAYERS,

THEY SHOULDN'T BE FORCED TO

PAY FOR THE PRINCIPLE

ABORTION PROVIDER IN

AMERICA.

AND YET THE PRESIDENT

SAID -- AND THIS IS THE

THING WE'VE GOT TO

REMEMBER -- HE IS AN

IDDEOLOG, AND HE BASICALLY

SAID I WILL SHUT THE

GOVERNMENT DOWN RATHER THAN

DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

THAT WAS IN THE PREVIOUS

NEGOTIATIONS.

HE SAID, I WILL SHUT THE

GOVERNMENT DOWN.

THE DEMOCRATS SAY, WE CAN'T

GIVE CUTS.

YES, THEY CAN.

THEY CAN CUT $500 MILLION

THERE.

AND THEY CAN ALSO STOP

GIVING MONEY TO FIND OUT THE

EFFECT OF DRUGS ON CHINESE

PROSTITUTES.

THIS IS THE KIND OF STUFF

THAT GOES ON.

THE WASTE IS APPALLING.

WHY SHOULD YOU AND I GIVE

OUR TAX MONEY TO FUND ALL OF

THAT FOOLISHNESS, BUT WE'RE

DOING IT.

AND IT IS TIME THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE SAY NO.

I THINK THE PRESIDENT NEEDS

TO HEAR THAT LOUD AND

CLEAR.

Lee: A POWERFUL TYPHOON

SLAMMED INTO THE SOUTHERN

REGION OF THE PHILIPPINES

TODAY, WILLING AT LEAST 40

PEOPLE, AND MORE THAN 50,000

WERE FORCED TO FLEE FROM

FLOODED VI VILLAGES.

TYPHOON BOFA HIT AT DOWN,

TOPPLING TREES, TRIGGERING

LANDSLIDES AND FLOODING

VILLAGES.

THE SOUTHERN PHILIPPINES IS

UNACCUSTOMD TO TW TYPHOONS

LIKE THIS.

FLU SEASON IS OFF TO A

START, AND THE CENTERS FOR

DISEASE CONTROL SAID IT

COULD BE A BAD ONE.

IT IS ALREADYING COMING FROM

FIVE STATES, ALABAMA,

LOUISIANA, AND TEXAS.

THIS IS THE EARLIEST FLEW

SEASON IN A DECADE.

BUT EXPERTS SAY THERE IS

GOOD NEWS.

THIS YEAR'S FLU VACCINE,

WE'RE TOLD, IS A GOOD

MATCH.

THE C.D.C. SAYS MORE THAN A

THIRD OF AMERICANS HAVE

ALREADY BEEN VACCINATED.

THE VACCINATIONS ARE

RECOMMENDED FOR EVERYONE SIX

MONTHS OR OLDER, BECAUSE THE

FEVER, BODY ACHES, AND

CONGESTION ARE NO FUN TO

DEAL WITH.

PAT, JUST DEALING WITH THE

COMMON COLD IS BAD ENOUGH.

Pat: BROTHER, I AIN'T

TAKING ANY FLU SHOTS, AND

MS. TERRY ISN'T TAKING ANY

FLU SHOTS.

Terry: I'M NOT.

Pat: I TAKE A LOT OF

VITAMIN "C," AND I TAKE

OTHER VITAMINS.

Terry: IN THIS

INSTANCE, THEY'RE SAYING

THIS YEAR IS -- THE SHOT IS

COMPARABLE TO WHAT THE FLU

BUG IS.

BUT USUALLY YOU'RE TAKING A

SHOT THAT IS MADE FROM LAST

YEAR'S FLU BUG, SO I DON'T

WANT THAT.

Pat: WELL, I'M NOT --

WELL, ANYHOW, IF YOU WANT TO

TAKE A SHOT, BE MY GUEST.

Terry: THERE ARE LOTS

OF FREE ONES ALL OVER THE

PLACE.

Pat: TERRY AND I ARE

GOING TO OPT OUT.

Terry: YES, WE ARE.

STILL HEY AHEAD, A LITTLE

GUY BUT WITH A BIG PROBLEM.

MY GRANDMOTHER IS A

NURSE, AND SHE SAID IF I

WOULDN'T DO SOMETHING ABOUT

IT, IT WOULD EAT MY TOE OFF

LITERALLY.

I FELT TERRIFIED, PRETTY

MUCH.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS BOY

WAS HEALED WITHOUT GOING TO

THE DOCTOR.

FIRST, THE ORPHANS OF THE

ARAB SPRING.

SEE WHAT IS BEING DONE TO

BRING HOPE AND HELP TO

EGYPT'S SUFFERING CHILDREN.

Pat: WELL, WHILE THE

WORLD FOCUSES ON THE

POLITICAL CHAOS IN EGYPT,

ONE GROUP OF PEOPLE IS STILL

SUFFERING QUIETLY IN THAT

COUNTRY.

AWAY FROM THE SPOTLIGHT OF

THE NEWS.

THEY ARE WIDOWS AND

ORPHANS.

AS GARY LANE REPORTS,

CHRISTIANS FROM AMERICA AND

EGYPT ARE REACHING OUT TO

HELP THESE SUFFERING PEOPLE

FIND HOPE.

THE SITUATION IS, OF

COURSE, GETTING WORSE.

THERE IS A LOT OF

INSECURITY, INSTABILITY THAT

IS HAPPENING IN EGYPT.

Reporter: 25% OF

EGYPTIANS LIVE AT OR BELOW

THE POVERTY LEVEL, EARNING

LESS THAN $2 A DAY.

MANY ARE WIDOWS.

AN ESTIMATED 1.7 MILLION

EGYPTIAN CHILDREN ARE

ORPHANS.

RAMIN ARAD IS THE LEADER OF

A GROUP THAT REACHES OUT TO

THE EGYPTIAN WIDOWS AND

THEIR CHILDREN.

ONCE THE FATHER PASSES

AWAY, YOU HAVE NOTHING.

THE FIRST STEP, OF COURSE,

THE CHILDREN ARE PULLED OUT

OF SCHOOL.

THEY BECOME THEN THE CHILD

LABOR, THEY BECOME THE CHILD

BRIDES, THEY BECOME THOSE

THAT ARE ABUSED, AND THEY

GROW TO PERPETUATE THIS

POVERTY.

Reporter: THE WIDOWS

AND ORPHANS ARE TREATED AS

SOCIAL OUTCASTS.

UNLIKE AMERICAN, EGYPTIANS

HAVE NO UNEMPLOYMENT OR

SOCIAL SECURITY.

31-YEAR-OLD NAMA HUSBAND,

GEORGE, DIED FROM STOMACH

CANCER FOUR YEARS AGO.

SHE AND HER TWO CHILDREN

HAVE STRUGGLED EVER SINCE.

THEY LIVE IN A SMALL,

ONE-ROOM ASSESSMENT NEAR THE

CITY OF LUX OR.

A CHRISTIAN VOLUNTEER

REGULARLY VISITS HER AND HER

CHILDREN.

Reporter: IF THE WIDOWS

AND THEIR CHILDREN ARE TO

HAVE A BRIGHTER FUTURE, THEY

NEED AN EDUCATION.

ANTONIO COULD BARELY READ,

BUT AFTER 15 SESSIONS WITH A

COPTIC CHRISTIAN, HE CAN NOW

READ BIBLE STORIES.

GO AHEAD.

HE STARTED OUT WITH JUST

SENDING MONEY TO THE

CHILDREN.

THEN WE REALIZED, WAIT A

MINUTE, TO REALLY HELP THEM

AND GET THEM ON THEIR FEET,

WE NEED TO FOCUS ON

EDUCATION.

Reporter: A CHRISTIAN

TUTOR HELPED 16-YEAR-OLD

CUROLOS TO GET BETTER GRADES

IN SCHOOL.

HIS FATHER, A TAILER DIED AT

THE AGE OF 38.

TODAY HIS SEWING MACHINE

SITS IDLE.

HIS MOTHER LEARNED SKILLS,

BUT HAD NO MONEY TO GET

STARTED.

CARING CHRISTIANS PROVIDED

HER WITH SEED MONEY TO

OPERATE A SMALL HAIR SALON.

BEFORE I HAD NO SOCIAL

LIFE.

I WAS AFRAID TO GO OUT IN

PUBLIC.

I DIDN'T HAVE MUCH

SELF-ESTEEM.

I TALK TO PEOPLE NOW.

I'M A TOTALLY DIFFERENT

PERSON.

I THANK GOD THIS SALON IS

PROVIDING FOOD AND CLOTHING,

EVERYTHING WE NEED.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT IS

THE LORD WHO IS PROVIDING

FOR US.

Reporter: 15-YEAR-OLD

IMAN WAS ONLY THREE YEARS

OLD WHEN HIS FATHER DIED

FROM INTESTINAL BLEEDING.

AMERICAN CHRISTIANS PAID FOR

HIS SCHOOL FEES SO HE CAN

REMAIN IN SCHOOL.

THEY ALSO PAID FOR HIS

MOTHER'S HEART SURGERY.

SHE NOW DOES SOME SMALL

SEWING JOBS TO HELP PROVIDE

FOR HER FAMILY.

THEY LIVE IN SEVERAL ROOMS

IN THIS HOUSE, BUT THE

LANDLORD WANTS THEM TO

LEAD.

IMAN TAKES A VOLUNTEER ON A

TOUR OF THE HOUSE THEY ARE

BUILDING FOR HIS FAMILY.

THE HELP MADE A BIG

DIFFERENCE.

THE CHILDREN WOULD NOT HAVE

BEEN ABLE TO CONTINUE IN

THEIR SCHOOL.

THEY ARE NOW DOING WELL IN

THEIR CLASSES.

I'M SO GRATEFUL TO GOD FOR

THE HELP.

Reporter: HE AND HIS

SIBLINGS NOW HAVE A BRIGHTER

FUTURE BECAUSE OF THE HELP

OF THE CARING AND EGYPTIAN

CHRISTIANS.

UNFORTUNATELY, THE RISE OF

THE ISLAMISTS MAY CAUSE

GREATER PERSECUTION AGAINST

NON-MUSLIMS.

RASAD SAYS MANY CHRISTIANS

ARE READY FOR THE NEXT WAVE

OF PERSECUTION.

MANY OF THE CHRISTIANS

SAID I'M LITERALLY READY TO

DIE FOR CHRIST.

WE WANT TO BE MORE AND MORE

READY TO PREPARE AND SUPPORT

AND MAKE THE CHRISTIANS IN

EGYPT STRONGER AND

STRONGER.

CHRIST GIVES US AN OFFER TO

WORK BESIDE HIM.

TO ME, I THINK IT IS THE

BIGGEST HONOR.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS, LUXOR, EGYPT.

Pat: YOU SAY TO

YOURSELF AS AN AMERICAN

CHRISTIAN, ARE YOU READY TO

DIE FOR YOUR FAITH?

ARE YOU CALLED UPON TO

SUFFER?

UNFORTUNATELY, THAT HASN'T

HAPPENED IN ANY KIND OF

MEANINGFUL MEASURE HERE IN

AMERICA.

WE'VE BEEN SPARED THESE

THINGS.

BUT THINK OF THESE BROTHERS

AND SISTERS IN CHRIST, THAT

THERE ARE ALL OVER THE

WORLD, WHO ARE SUFFERING

BECAUSE OF MILITANT ISLAM

THAT HAS SET OUT TO KILL

THEM.

AND THEY ARE STANDING TRUE

TO THE LORD.

AND WE PRAY FOR THEM, AND WE

NEED TO CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR

THEM.

THINK OF THEM WHEN YOU'RE IN

YOUR PRAYERS.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, ON A LIGHTER NOTE,

DECORATING FOR THE HOLIDAY,

YOUR MAILBOX, YOUR MANTEL,

AND LOTS MORE.

WE'VE GOT SOME WONDERFUL

IDEAS FOR CHRISTMAS DECOR

FROM SOUTHERN LIVING

MAGAZINE.

BEFORE WE GET TO ALL OF

THAT, A 9-YEAR-OLD IS

MIRACULOUSLY HEALED, AND WE

WANT TO SHOW YOU WHAT

HAPPENS.

THEN WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU

AND YOUR NEEDS.

ALL OF THAT AFTER THIS.

Terry: JIMMY WAS AFRAID

TO GO TO THE DOCTOR, AND

THAT'S WHY THE 9-YEAR-OLD

HID THE INFECTION THAT WAS

SPREADING ON HIS FOOT FROM

HIS PARENTS.

UNTIL THE DAY HIS MOM

FINALLY SAW IT.

Reporter: WHEN TIMMY'S

FOOT STARTED BOTHERING HIM,

HE DIDN'T THINK MUCH OF IT.

IT FELT LIKE NOTHING AT

FIRST, BUT THEN IT STARTED

GETTING WORSE AND WORSE.

IT WAS ITCHING AT FIRST, AND

THEN IN, LIKE, A WE'LL BE

RIGHT BACKWEEK, IT STARTED

TO HURT.

I STARTED SCRATCHING IT AND

IT WAS REALLY HURTING BY

THEN.

Reporter: IT WAS A

FUNGAL INFECTION THAT GOT SO

BAD, TIMMY STOPPED GOING

RUNNING WITH HIS MOM,

EMILY.

BUT HE NEVER SAID ANYTHING

TO HIS MOM OR HIS DAD

BECAUSE HE WAS SCARED OF

GOING TO THE DOCTOR.

BECAUSE I THINK

EVERYTHING SOUNDS PAINFUL IN

DOCTOR'S TERMS.

Reporter: THEN ONE DAY,

AS THEY WERE GETTING READY

TO GO OUT, EMILY SAW TIMMY'S

FOOT.

I SAW THREE BAD

INFECTIONS.

SO I KIND OF GOT UPSET AND

REALLY SCARED.

IT WAS PRETTY GRUESOME,

AND SO SHE WAS FREAKING OUT

A LOT.

I DID FREAK OUT.

WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME?

I THOUGHT, THAT'S MY BABY

AND THAT'S HIS PERFECT

LITTLE FEET.

SO I DID CRY AND DID GET

UPSET.

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?

THE SKY IS FALLING.

MY GRANDMOTHER IS A

NURSE, AND SHE THOUGHT IF I

WOULDN'T DO SOMETHING ABOUT

IT, IT WOULD EAT MY TOE OFF,

LITERALLY.

I FELT TERRIFIED, PRETTY

MUCH.

Reporter: THEY STARTED

TREATING THE INFECTION WITH

ANTIFUNGAL OINTMENTS

IMMEDIATELY, AND WANTED TO

SEE RESULTS.

I WANTED TO SEE IT HAPPEN

VERY FAST.

AND EVERY DAY I THOUGHT THIS

ISN'T MOVING ALONG LIKE IT

SHOULD.

WE WEREN'T SEEING ANY

HEALING FROM THAT.

WE WERE PRAYING, TOO.

WHEN ONE OF MY KIDS ARE

ILL OR INJURED, I'M ALWAYS

PRAYING FOR THEM.

Reporter: THEN ONE DAY

SHE WAS WATCHING TV IN THE

KITCHEN.

I WATCH THE "700 CLUB"

EVERY DAY, AND I WAS

WATCHING IT, AND I HEARD

TERRY SAY THERE IS A PARENT

PRAYING FOR YOUR CHILD,

TIMOTHY.

Terry: THERE IS A

PARENT PRAYING FOR A CHILD

NAMED TIMOTHY.

GOD HAS HEARD YOUR PRAYER

AND THE THING YOU ASKED FOR

WILL BE DONE.

IT WAS SUCH A PERSONAL

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

I GOT SO EMOTIONAL.

TIMOTHY, COME HERE!

I THOUGHT I WAS IN

TROUBLE, SO I WENT

DOWNSTAIRS.

I WAS YELLING AND

PRAISING GOD, AND I DID YELL

AT TIMOTHY, BUT HE KNEW IT

WASN'T ANYTHING BAD.

Reporter: EMILY PLAYED

THE CLIP AGAIN AND THEY

WATCHED IT TOGETHER.

I THOUGHT IT WOULD GET

HEALED IN A COUPLE OF DAYS

AND I WAS REALLY HAPPY.

BUT IT TURNED OUT IT GOT

HEALED IN A COUPLE OF

HOURS.

I DID SEE A CHANGE RIGHT

AWAY.

I FELT REALLY GOOD

BECAUSE I COULD RUN WITH MOM

ON THE JOGGING TRAILS AND DO

ALL OF THE STUFF I WANTED TO

DO BEFORE.

Reporter: TIMMY HAD

HEARD ABOUT WORDS OF

KNOWLEDGE BEFORE, BUT HE

NEVER REALLY UNDERSTOOD WHAT

THEY WERE OR HOW THEY WORKED

UNTIL THAT DAY.

I KNEW THAT GOD CARED

ABOUT ME, AND HE WANTED TO

PROTECT ME.

AND I THOUGHT HE WAS REALLY

NICE AT THAT TIME.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: TIMOTHY, YOU GET

IT.

GOD DOES LOVE YOU AND CARE

ABOUT YOU.

AND HE CARES ENOUGH TO LET

YOU KNOW BY NAME.

I HEAR YOUR PRAYER.

AND HE HEARS A MOM'S HEART,

PRAYING FOR HER CHILD.

Pat: WHAT AN AMAZING

LITTLE BOY, SO ARTICULATE.

Terry: LIKE THERE IS A

GROWNUP IN THERE.

Pat: WE HAVE TIME TO

PRAYER.

Terry: THIS IS JOSEPH,

AND HE SUFFERED FROM

SORENESS IN BOTH ARMS.

AT TIMES, HE SAID THE ACHE

ALSO EXTENDED INTO HIS LOWER

BACK.

IF HE TRIED TO PICK UP

SOMETHING AS LIGHT AS A

SMALL SODA BOTTLE, HE

COULDN'T LIFT IT AND HOLD

IT.

UNABLE TO AFFORD A VISIT TO

THE DOCTOR, SO THE PROBLEM

CONTINUED FOR LONGER THAN A

YEAR.

ONE DAY HE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM AND HE HEARD YOU

SPEAK, PAT.

START MOVING THOSE JOINTS.

AND SO JOSEPH CLAIMED THE

WORD.

HE SAID THE PAIN LEFT, AND

HE IS NOW ABLE TO LIFT

OBJECTS WITHOUT ANY PAIN AT

ALL.

Pat: I DIDN'T KNOW

JOSEPH, AND YOU DIDN'T KNOW

TIMOTHY, BUT GOD KNEW THEM.

KAREN, WHO LIVES IN

BUCKHANNON, WEST VIRGINIA,

BEGAN TO HAVE TROUBLE

BREATHING.

SHE COUGHED A LOT AND HAD

TROUBLE SWALLOWING.

SHE SOUGHT HELP FROM SEVERAL

DOCTORS WITH NO AVAIL.

ONE DAY WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," SHE HEARD TERRY GIVE

A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, QUOTE,"YOU HAVE

SOME KIND OF LUNG CONDITION

THAT DOESN'T ALLOW YOU TO

BREATHE DEEPLY."

AND TERRY HAD ANOTHER WORD

ABOUT SOMEONE HAVING

PROBLEMS WITH EATING.

AS TERRY WAS PRAYING, KAREN

FELT A COOLING SENSE SAYS,

AND FROM THAT MOMENT ON SHE

HAS BEEN ABLE TO BREATHE

WITHOUT ANY BREATHING

PROBLEMS.

FOLKS, GOD IS ABLE.

HE IS ABSOLUTELY ALMIGHTY.

YOU SEE, HE IS ALMIGHTY.

THAT MEANS THERE ISN'T

ANYTHING HE CAN'T DO.

HE CREATED THIS WORLD.

HE CREATED THE UNIVERSE.

HE CREATED EVERYTHING THAT

WE HAVE, FROM THE DAWN OF

HISTORY TO THE DAY THAT WE

LIVE IN.

HE HAS GOT IT ALL UNDER

CONTROL.

NOW, TERRY AND I ARE GOING

TO JOIN TOGETHER.

HERE IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS:

"IF TWO OF YOU WILL AGREE ON

EARTH AS TOUCHING ANYTHING

THAT THEY EX ASK, IT WILL

BE DONE FOR THEM BY MY

FATHER, WHO IS IN HEAVEN."

SO AS YOU AGREE ON EARTH,

THE FATHER IN HEAVEN HEARS

AND DOES WHAT YOU ASK FOR.

THAT'S WHAT JESUS SAID.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO JOIN IN

AGREEMENT, AND WE'RE GOING

TO ASK YOU TO AGREE WITH

US.

WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

WHAT PROBLEM DO YOU HAVE?

AND WE'RE GOING TO PRAY

TOGETHER.

FATHER, TERRY AND I JOIN IN

AGREEMENT.

YOU SAID IF TWO OF YOU WILL

AGREE -- WE AGREE NOW FOR

THE PEOPLE IN THIS AUDIENCE

WHO ARE SUFFERING.

SOMEBODY ELSE WITH A LUNG

PROBLEM, IT'S A THING THAT

YOU'VE GOT -- THE LORD HAS

HEALED THAT FUNGUS THAT IS

GOING IN YOUR LUNGS.

YOU ARE COMPLETELY HEALED.

YOU'LL FEEL A BURNING IN

YOUR LUNGS AND YOU ARE

HEALED.

IN JESUS' NAME.

A HEART CONDITION HAS BEEN

HEALED BY THE POWER OF GOD.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE YOU HAVE A VERY SORE

THROAT.

IT IS NOT TONSILS BECAUSE

YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TONSILS,

BUT YOU HAVE A SWELLING AND

IT'S VERY, VERY PAINFUL.

GOD IS HEALING WHATEVER THAT

IS.

AND SOMEBODY ELSE, YOU HAVE

ESOPHAGEAL PROBLEMS AND YOUR

VERY AFRAID TO GO TO THE

DOCTOR.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION AND YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO HAVE IT ANYMORE.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT A

PROBLEM, ACID REFLUX AND SO

FORTH, ALMOST LIKE

PROJECTILE VOMITING, YOU

HAVE BEEN VERY SICK IN YOUR

STOMACH, AND YOU'VE BEEN

SAYING, OH, GOD, WOULD YOU

HELP ME.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR

ABDOMEN, AND IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, BE HEALED.

Terry: SOMEBODY ELSE,

WITH THE ARCHES OF YOUR

FEET, GREAT PROBLEM AND

DISCOMFORT.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU,

AND YOU'LL BE ABLE TO WEAR

NORMAL SHOES AND WALK

DISTANCES WITHOUT ANY

PROBLEM.

Pat: YOU HAVE A VIRUS,

THERE ARE NIGHT SWEATS, AND

YOU WAKE UP SOAKING WET

BECAUSE OF THE

PERSPIRATION.

GOD HAS JUST BURNED THAT

VIRUS OUT OF YOUR BODY.

YOU'RE COMPLETELY HEALED IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

Terry: AND SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE ARTHRITIS,

AND YOU'RE GOING TO KNOW

THIS IS YOU BECAUSE THIS IS

THE TERM THE DOCTOR USED, IN

YOUR LUMBAR REGION.

AND IT IS SO PAINFUL,

BENDING, STOOPING DOWN, AND

GOD IS HEALING THAT

COMPLETELY.

YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL A

WARMTH IN THAT AREA OF YOUR

BODY, AND IT IS GOING TO BE

AS THOUGH YOU'RE 18 YEARS

OLD AGAIN.

Pat: I BELIEVE THE NAME

IS MICHAEL, YOU'RE PRAYING

FOR $150,000, AND YOU'RE

SAYING, GOD, I'VE GOT TO

HAVE THIS MONEY.

AND THE LORD HAS HEARD YOUR

PRAYER.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE A

FINANCIAL MIRACLE IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: GOD IS GOOD ALL OF

THE TIME.

IF YOU NEED FURTHER PRAYER,

WE INVITE YOU TO CALL IN.

IT'S A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS JUST

CALL IN, 1-800-759-0700.

WE'RE HERE BECAUSE WE LOVE

YOU AND WE'RE HERE TO HELP

YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, THEY

ARE PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND ME,

THE VICTIMS OF HURRICANE

SANDY.

ALL OF THESE YEARS I'VE

DONATED TO OTHER PEOPLE, AND

NOW I'M ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE

THAT NEEDS THE DONATION.

Terry: WATCH WHAT IS

BEING DONE TO HELP THE

RESIDENTS OF BREEZY POINT

AFTER -- GET THIS -- FIVE

WEEKS WITHOUT POWER AND

COUNTING.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

A CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY TO

PAKISTAN IS IN CRITICAL

CONDITION AFTER BEING SHOT

IN THE CITY OF LAHORE.

REJETTA EMMY IS A DIRECTOR

OF THE FULL GOSPEL

MINISTRIES IN PAKISTAN.

THE GUNMAN SHOT HER IN FRONT

OF HER HOME.

THE SHOOTER ESCAPED, AND NO

ONE HAS CLAIMED

RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE

ATTACK.

EMMY IS IN HER 70s, AND

HAS WORKED IN THE MUSLIM

COMPANY FOR EVERLY YEARS.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS ISSUED A

TEMPORARY JUST THAT PREVENTS

COUNCILLORS FROM USE THERAPY

WITH MINORS.

JUDGE WILLIAM SHHUB SAYS IT

OUTWEIGHS THAT THE THERAPY

COULD HARM YOUNG PEOPLE.

HE SAID THE CLAIM IS BASED

ON QUESTIONABLE AND

SCIENTIFICALLY INCOMPLETE

STUDIES.

THE INJUNCTION APPLIES ONLY

TO THREE COUNCILLORS WHO

SOUGHT TO OVERTURN THAT

LAW.

IT WILL REMAIN IN FORCE NOW

UNTIL A TRIAL.

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"

AFTER THIS.

Pat: CHRISTMAS, THREE

WEEKS.

Terry: OH, THAT'S TOO

FAST.

Pat: I'M SURE YOU'RE

ALL PREPARED.

YOU HAVE GOTTEN DECORATIONS

UP, YOU'VE DONE ALL OF YOUR

COOKING, AND YOU'RE JUST

GOING TO SIT BACK --

Terry: I DO HAVE A TREE

ON THE DECK IN A PAIL OF

WATER.

Pat: WELL, I'VE GOT ONE

OF THE ARTIFICIAL DEALS THAT

HAS THE LIGHTS ALL SET UP.

YOU PLUG IN THREE SOCKETS.

OKAY.

SHOPPING IS NOT ON THE MINDS

OF MOST OF THE RESIDENTS OF

BREEZY POINT, NEW YORK.

THEY'RE STILL REELING FROM

THE EFFECTS OF HURRICANE

SANDY.

Reporter: FIVE WEEKS

AFTER THE DEVASTATION OF

HURRICANE SANDY, THE FOLKS

OF BREEZY POINT, NEW YORK,

ARE STILL WITHOUT POWER.

RESIDENTS ARE STRUGGLING TO

PUT THEIR LIVES BACK

TOGETHER.

WE'VE WATCHED HURRICANE

KATRINA, AND WE'VE WATCHED

THE TSUNAMI, AND MOST OF US

HAVE WATCHED IT ON CNN OR

READ IT IN NEWSPAPERS.

NOW WE'RE SEEING IT HAPPEN

HERE.

AND IT IS PRETTY

OVERWHELMING.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

BEEN HELPING IN BREEZY POINT

SINCE THE STORM HIT THE

AREA, CLEANING OUT DAMAGED

HOUSES AND GIVING THE

RESIDENTS FOOD AND

SUPPLIES.

WE'RE ALWAYS HERE TO HELP

COMFORT PEOPLE, TO BRING

HOPE, TO LOVE THEM AND PRAY

WITH THEM.

TO KNOW THEY'RE NOT HERE

ALONE, THE RESIDENTS, BUT

WE'RE HERE TO HELP THEM AND

TO LET THEM KNOW THERE IS A

FUTURE AND THAT THEY CAN

REBUILD THEIR LIVES.

Reporter: THROUGHOUT

THE CLEANUP, O.B. VOLUNTEERS

HAVE SERVED AS AN

INSPIRATION TO THE PEOPLE OF

BREEZY POINT.

MANY WERE TRYING TO CLEAN

OUT THEIR HOUSES ALONE.

AND THEN "OPERATION

BLESSING" SHOWED UP, AND I'M

VERY GRATEFUL THAT THEY

DID.

AND IT HAS BEEN A BLESSING.

APPROPRIATELY NAMED BECAUSE

WE JUST COMPLETED A

SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF WORK

IN A RELATIVELY SHORT PERIOD

OF TIME.

THE GENEROSITY OF

EVERYBODY WAS DOING ABOVE

AND BEYOND WHAT WAS

EXPECTED.

THEY HAVE THE FOOD SET

UP, SO WHEN WE WORKED ALL

DAY, WE COULD JUST GO AND

GET FOOD TO EAT BECAUSE

THERE IS NO PLACE TO EAT,

AND THE REFRIGERATORS DON'T

WORK.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

STOOD ARM IN ARM WITH THIS

DEVASTATED COMMUNITY.

AND WITH YOUR HELP, THEY

WILL CONTINUE TO HELP THOSE

IN NEED.

ALL OF THESE YEARS I

DONATED FOR OTHER PEOPLE,

AND NOW I'M ONE OF THOSE

PEOPLE THAT NEEDS THE

DONATION.

I THANK YOU FROM THE BECOME

BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

Pat: LISTEN, "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS STILL WORKING

IN NEW YORK AND STILL NEEDS

HELP.

AND THOSE PEOPLE NEED HELP.

I WAS TALKING TO GARY

LEBLANC, THE HEAD OF MERCY

SHIFTS, WHICH, OF COURSE, IS

AFFILIATED HERE WITH WHAT WE

DO.

AND HE TOLD ME THEY HAD FED

55,000 MEALS.

AND HE SAID THE PEOPLE WERE

SO GRATEFUL.

THEY HADN'T HAD A HOT MEAL

IN SOME OF THOSE AREAS FOR

DAYS ON END.

THEY DON'T HAVE ANY WATER.

Terry: HAVE CAN YOU

HAVE A HOT MEAL, UNLESS

YOU'RE SET UP WITH COOKING

WITH GAS OUTSIDE.

Pat: YOU CAN'T.

IT IS JUST DEVASTATING, AND

THEN SOMEBODY COMES ALONG

AND LOVES YOU, THEY'RE SO

THRILLED.

THE THING THAT TOUCHED ME SO

MUCH, AND BROUGHT TEARS TO

MY EYES, THEY WERE IN A

HOUSING PROJECT, MOSTLY

HISPANIC, AND HE SAID THE

LITTLE KIDS WERE COMING DOWN

AND SAYING, CAN WE GET A

MEAL?

THERE IS A LADY UP ON THE

25th FLOOR, SHE CAN'T COME

DOWN, AND I'D LIKE TO TAKE

HER A MEAL.

THESE LITTLE KIDS WERE

RUNNING MEALS UP AND DOWN TO

THESE PEOPLE.

THERE IS SHARING AND

COMPASSION.

AND IT'S SO IMPORTANT.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IF WE

SHARE TOGETHER, GOD WILL

BLESS US AND BLESS YOU.

SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN

HERE.

THIS THING IS GOING OUT.

WE PUT OUT SOME VERY PRETTY

THINGS, BY THE WAY.

THIS IS FOR CHRISTMAS.

WE HAD ONE FOR THANKSGIVING,

AND THIS IS FOR CHRISTMAS.

INSIDE THERE IS A LITTLE

BOOKLET THAT IS A

DEVOTIONAL.

IT HAS ALL OF THESE NICE

DEVOTIONS.

Terry: IT IS REALLY

BEAUTIFUL.

Pat: AND RIGHT HERE IS

MY WIFE'S ORANGE DATE NUT

CAKE THAT HAS BROUGHT RAVES

FROM THOSE WHO HAVE TASTED

IT.

INSIDE IS A LITTLE

BLASPHEMY, IS MAC AND

CHEESE.

Terry: I'M TELLING YOU

YOU'RE GOING TO BE IN A HEAP

OF TROUBLE BECAUSE A LOT OF

PEOPLE LOVE THEM.

Pat: I KNOW.

THE MAC AND CHEESE --

Terry: THERE ARE MAC

AND CHEESE CONNOISSEURS.

Pat: IT IS ALL HERE.

YOU'VE GOT A DEVOTIONAL, AND

MUSIC AND ALL KINDS OF

LOVELY THINGS FOR

CHRISTMAS.

IT IS A LOVELY LITTLE BOOK

AND LITTLE DECORATING TIPS.

YOU'LL GET THAT, AND ALONG

WITH IT, IT WILL BE OUR

REQUEST TO SAY HELP US AT

THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.

WE WANT TO GIVE A LOT OF

PRESENTS.

WE WANT TO GIVE FOOD AND WE

WANT TO HELP PEOPLE

SUFFERING.

AND IF WE CAN BRING SOME

CHEER, SHARE THE BLESSING

THAT IS COMING TO YOU WITH

OTHERS.

AND THE PRINCIPLE THAT I

HAVE TRIED TO APPLY, AND

I'LL DO IT AGAIN, IS YOU

FIGURE WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO

SPEND ON YOUR THANKSGIVING

OR ON YOUR CHRISTMAS DINNER,

WHICHEVER, AND WRITE A CHECK

FOR THAT AMOUNT TO

"OPERATION BLESSING."

Terry: IT MAKES A HUGE

DIFFERENCE.

WE HAVE SUCH AN OPPORTUNITY

TO GET THAT TO THE RIGHT

PEOPLE.

Pat: BELIEVE ME, WE

KNOW WHERE THEY ARE AND WHO

THEY ARE AND HOW TO HELP

THEM AND HOW TO MAKE IT VERY

EFFICIENT.

OKAY.

Terry: COMING UP LATER,

WE'RE GOING TO BRING IT ON.

CLARA WANTS TO KNOW HOW CAN

A PERSON MAKE SURE HE IS

SAVED AND WILL GET TO GO TO

HEAVEN.

WE'RE GOING TO ANSWER

CLARA'S QUESTION AND MORE

WHEN WE BRING IT ON.

FIRST, DECORATING FOR

CHRISTMAS ON A BUDGET.

WHO DOESN'T NEED THAT?

BY USING WHAT IS IN YOUR

VERY OWN BACKYARD.

SEE HOW TO DO IT WHEN WE

COME BACK.

*

Terry: LISTEN, JUST

BECAUSE YOU'RE ON A BUDGET

AND MONEY IS TIGHT, YOU

DON'T HAVE TO SCALE BACK ON

CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED COULD BE

RIGHT IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD.

NOT INSPIRED TO DECK THE

HALLS AND TRIM THE TREE?

KIMBERLY WIBETTMAN, EDITOR

AT LARGE FOR SOUTHERN LIVING

MAGAZINE, HAS IDEAS TO MAKE

YOUR SEASON BRIGHT.

IN CHRISTMAS FOR SOUTHERN

LIVING, KIMBERLY HAS FESTIVE

DECORATING TIPS THAT WILL

HELP ADD SPARKLE TO YOUR

HOME THIS SEASON.

YOU'LL BRING CHRISTMAS CHEER

TO YOUR OUTDOOR DE COR AND

GIVE YOUR GUESTS A MERRY

WELCOME INSIDE.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," SOMEBODY

WHO IS GOING TO HELP US DO

THAT, KIMBERLY WHITMAN.

THANK YOU.

Terry: HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

AND TO YOU.

Terry: IN OUR AREA,

BECAUSE WE'RE IN

WILLIAMSBURG, WE SEE SO MUCH

OF THAT.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THE MANTEL

AND TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE

DONE HERE.

THE MANTEL IS WHERE

PEOPLE GATHER TOGETHER FOR A

NICE CELEBRATION.

IT IS A NICE PLACE TO REALLY

PUT AN EMPHASIS.

THESE ARE ALL MATERIALS YOU

CAN GET IN YOUR YARD.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE THEM

OUTSIDE, MAYBE THE

SUPERMARKET.

AND WE'VE ADDED MINT JULEP

CUPS, AND EVEN GLASSES,

SOMETHING SMALL THAT WOULD

FIT ON THE MANTEL.

AND WE FILLED THEM WITH

WHITE ROSES.

KIND OF FRESH DURING THE

HOLIDAYS, AND UNEXPECTED.

Terry: I LOVE THE STARK

WHITE WITH THE GREEN AND THE

PINE CONES.

A LITTLE BIT OF DRAMA.

Terry: AND SPEAKING OF

DRAMA, YOU CAN HAVE THAT

OUTSIDE YOUR HOUSE.

YOU'VE DONE IT REALLY WITH

YOUR MAILBOX.

THAT'S RIGHT.

IT IS AN UNEXPECTED PLACE TO

ADD SOME EMBELLISHMENT,

MAYBE A PLACE WE WOULDN'TP?

THINK OF, BUT IT IS A REALLY

NICE PLACE.

THESE ARE, ALL AGAIN,

MATERIALS YOU WOULD FIND IN

YOUR YARD.

MAYBE EXTRA CLIPPINGS OFF

THE BOTTOM OF YOUR CHRISTMAS

TREE.

Terry: THAT'S WHY THEY

ASKED ME IF I WANTED THOSE.

YES.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO PUT THEM

ON YOUR MANTEL.

THERE IS MAGNOLIA LEAVES AND

HOLLY BERRIES --

Terry: MAGNOLIA LEAVES

ARE SO BEAUTIFUL.

IF YOU'RE LIVING IN THE

SOUTH, WOW, YOU'RE MISSING

IT IF YOU DON'T USE THEM IN

SOME WAY.

ABSOLUTELY.

YOU CAN EVEN POLISH THEM

WITH SOME PLEDGE AND THEY

GET SHINY.

Terry: HOW DO YOU

ATTACH THAT SO IT STAYS ON

THE MAILBOX?

IT'S JUST PIPE CLEANERS.

YOU CAN GET THEM THE SAME

COLOR OF YOUR MAILBOX OR YOU

CAN GET GREEN AND RED, AND

WE JUST WOUND IT AROUND.

Terry: LET'S TALK ABOUT

THE TABLE.

I LOVE THE SMELL OF CLOVES

AND CINNAMON.

YOU'VE DONE SOMETHING

AWESOME WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL

DISPLAY OF ORANGES AND

LIMES.

THANK YOU.

IT IS VERY TRADITIONAL

CHRISTMAS DECOR, AND THE

KIDS CAN GET INVOLVED IN

THIS PROJECT.

ALL GENERATIONS CAN ENJOY

THIS.

THEY USED TO DO THIS AGES

AND AGES -- HUNDREDS OF

YEARS AGO, AND THEY WOULD

LET THEM DRY DURING THE

HOLIDAY SEASON AND THROW

THEM IN THE FIREPLACE FOR

THE FRAGRANCE ONCE THEY WERE

DRIED UP.

TRADITIONALLY THEY WERE DONE

WITH ORANGES, BUT AS YOU CAN

SEE, WE TRIED OTHER CITRUS

FRUITS, LIMES, LEMONS.

YOU PICK UP A TOOL TO PIERCE

WITH.

I'LL USE A FORK.

YOU MAKE SOME HOLES IN ANY

PATTERN YOU LIKE.

THE FORKS ARE EASY, IF YOU

WANT TO DO A STRIPE BECAUSE

THEY JUST GO ALL THE WAY

DOWN.

Terry: THAT'S GREAT.

AND THEN YOU TAKE THE

CLOVES --

Terry: AND WE'RE JUST

GOING TO POP THEM IN THERE.

THAT'S RIGHT.

OBVIOUSLY WITH THE LONGER

SIDE DOWN, AND THEY POP

RIGHT IN.

Terry: THESE DO SMELL

WONDERFUL.

DON'T THEY?

IT IS A GREAT THING TO DO IF

YOU'RE GATHERING FRIENDS

TOGETHER OR TRYING TO KEEP

LITTLE HANDS PREOCCUPIED

WHILE YOU'RE COOKING A

HOLIDAY MEAL.

Terry: AND THIS IS A

GREAT CENTER PIECE FOR YOUR

HOME.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL

CENTERPIECE, AND IF YOU HAVE

CAKE STANDS, YOU CAN PILE

THEM HIGH.

Terry: AND YOU ADDED

GREENERY AND I IT REALLY

SMELLS AWESOME.

AND YOU CAN ROLL IT IN

CINNAMON TO GIVE IT EXTRA

FRAGRANCE.

AND YOU CAN USE A GLUE GUN

AND GLUE SOME RIBBONS ON.

JUST GET PLAYFUL.

Terry: OH, WOW!

SMELLS WONDERFUL.

DO YOU WANT TO GLUE ONE ON

YOURS?

Terry: IS THIS HOT?

I THINK IT IS.

Terry: COME ON, LITTLE

GUY, GET IN THERE.

HERE YOU GO.

Terry: COME ON.

THANK YOU.

THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

THERE WE GO.

THERE WE GO.

AND HERE IS A STAR.

Terry: THAT'S A GREAT

IDEA.

A PRETTY LITTLE

EMBELLISHMENT.

Terry: HAVE FUN.

THIS IS A GREAT ACTIVITY TO

DO SOMETHING WITH THE

FAMILY.

SOMETIMES YOU'RE LOOKING FOR

THOSE SPECIAL THINGS THAT

ALLOW YOU TO DO THAT.

AND SPEAKING OF THAT, HOW

FUN IS THIS?

I AGREE.

Terry: THIS IS AN ALL

PEPPERMINT WREATH AND YOU

DID ATTACH THE BOW.

AND YOU DID THIS WITH A GLUE

GUN AND PEPPERMINT?

YES.

WE TOOK A FOAM WREATH FORM

AND WE SPRAYPAINTED IT RED.

BECAUSE A LITTLE OF IT WILL

SHOW BETWEEN THE

PEPPERMINT.

AND YOU HAVE TO LET IT DRY.

AND IF YOU HAVE LITTLE HANDS

AROUND THAT YOU WANT TO KEEP

BUSY, YOU CAN ASK THE

CHILDREN TO UNWRAP ALL OF

THE PEPPERMINTS FOR YOU.

I CHOSE RED AND WHITE, BUT

THEY HAVE THE GREEN AND

WHITE ONES AND THE GREEN AND

RED ONES.

I LIKE THE RED AND WHITE

BECAUSE IT IS SO FRESH.

IT IS VERY SIMPLE, WE TAKE

THE GL GLUE GUN AGAIN,

HOPEFULLY IT WILL WORK FOR

YOU AGAIN.

YOU JUST PUT A LITTLE BIT OF

GLUE DOWN.

WE'RE JUST GOING TO DO ONE

LAYER OF THE PEPPERMINT.

WE DON'T WANT THEM TO

OVERLAP.

Terry: THERE YOU GO.

AND THAT SHOULD FIT RIGHT

IN THERE.

Terry: THAT IS A REALLY

FUN THING TO DO.

I LOVE THE LOOK OF JUST THE

RED AND WHITE ON IT.

IT'S REALLY GREAT.

I HAVE TO SAY I HAVE A

COLLECTION OF THESE BOOKS

BECAUSE I FIND THEM SO FUN.

YOU'RE GOING TO FIND THESE

CHRISTMAS DECORATING IDEAS,

AND LOTS MERE MORE, IN THE

"2012 CHRISTMAS SOUTHERN

LIVING."

AND WE HAVE THE INSTRUCTIONS

FOR THE THINGS THAT KIMBERLY

AND I HAVE BEEN TALKING

ABOUT, FOR ALL OF THE

DECORATIONS YOU'VE SEEN

ONLINE, AND ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO IS LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

THIS BOOK IS ABSOLUTELY

BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED WITH

GREAT IDEAS.

THANK YOU.

AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU.

Terry: PAT, OVER TO

YOU.

Pat: I'M SURE "SOUTHERN

LIVING," WOULD APPRECIATE

YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TO THEIR

VERY EXCELLENT MAGAZINE,

WHICH MY WIFE HAS HAD FOR

YEARS.

COMING UP NEXT, WE HAVE YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

AND VERA WANTS TO KNOW HOW

SOMEONE WHO HAS SOLD HIS

SOUL TO THE DEVIL EVER GETS

DELIVERED OR REDEEMED.

THAT'S AN INTERESTING

QUESTION JUST COMING UP

BEFORE CHRISTMAS.

Terry: WE WANT TO

QUICKLY GET TO THE E-MAIL

QUESTIONS TODAY.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

CLACLARA, WHO SAYS, "HOW

CAN A PERSON MAKE SURE HE IS

SAVED AND GETS TO GO TO

HEAVEN?"

Pat: IT IS NOT ON

FEELING.

IT IS BASED ON THE BIBLE.

THE BIBLE SAYS IF YOU

BELIEVE ON THE LORD, JESUS

CHRIST, YOU SHALL BE SAVED.

YOU COMMIT YOURSELF TO HIM.

BUT THE HOLY SPIRIT BEARS

WITNESS WITH OUR SPIRIT THAT

WE'RE CHILDREN OF GOD.

THE BIBLE SAYS IF OUR HEARTS

CONDEMN US NOT, THEN WE HAVE

CONFIDENCE BEFORE GOD THAT

WHAT WE ASK FOR WE RECEIVE

OF GOD.

BUT YOU DON'T WANT YOUR

HEART CONDEMNING YOU.

SO IF YOU'RE SINNING ALL OF

THE TIME, YOU SAY, WELL, HOW

CAN I BE SURE?

WELL, STOP SINNING AND START

SERVING THE LORD.

IF YOU HAVE GUILT IN YOUR

HEART, IT WILL TAKE SOME OF

THAT ASSURANCE AWAY FROM

YOU.

WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME.

WE'LL TAKE THAT UP ON

ANOTHER PROGRAM.

Terry: HERE IS A VIEWER

WHO WANTS TO KNOW, CAN

SOMEONE WHO HAS SOLD HIS

SOUL TO THE DEVIL EVER BE

DELIVERED OR REDEEMED?

Pat: THAT'S A FAMOUS

PLAY IN THOUTEST, AND THEN

DANIEL IS ARGUING FOR THE

SOUL OF SOMEBODY -- OF

COURSE IF YOU'VE GIVEN

YOURSELF OVER TO THE DEVIL

YOU CAN BE REDEEMED.

Terry: YOU CAN CHANGE

YOUR MIND.

Pat: YOU CAN CHANGE

YOUR MIND AND SAY I WITHDRAW

THE PROMISE I MADE TO YOU

AND I'M NOW COMMITTED TO

JESUS.

YOU'VE GOT TO TURN TO

JESUS.

YOU TURN AWAY FROM THE ONE

AND YOU TURN OVER TO HIM.

AND OF COURSE YOU CAN BE

SAVED.

THAT'S NOT A PERMANENT

TRANSACTION.

SELLING YOURSELF TO THE

DEVIL.

TOMORROW, OLYMPIC STAR GABBY

DOUGLAS, WHO IS FROM

VIRGINIA BEACH, SHE IS GOING

TO TELL ABOUT THE TEST OF

HER FAITH.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM COLOSSIANS: "LET

THE PEACE OF GOD RULE IN

YOUR HEARTS AND BE

THANKFUL."

SEE YOU TOMORROW.
