Watch the 700 Club Canada for December 26, 2012. Read Transcript


HELLO. I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA-LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON. THANKS FOR

JOINING US TODAY.

LAURA-LYNN, YOU KNOW,

SCARY MOVIES, WHEN WE

WERE KIDS, AND I KNOW YOU

GUYS ARE IN YOUR JAMMIES

RIGHT NOW, BOXING DAY,

GETTING READY TO GO OUT

AND SHOP. BUT, YOU KNOW,

CONFESSION IS GOOD FOR THE

SOUL, BAD FOR THE

REPUTATION.

YEAH.

I REMEMBER MY MOM TOLD

ME DO NOT WATCH THOSE

SCARY MOVIES. BUT I USED TO

LIKE THE NIGHT GALLERY AND

THINGS LIKE THAT.

KIDS LOVE THAT.

LIKE BELA LUGOSI AND

BORIS KARLOFF A CLUE. AND

I'M NOT GOING TO DO THAT

AGAIN. BUT I'M JUST TELLING

YOU.

YEAH.

BUT WHAT WAS YOUR

SCARIEST MOVIE?

WELL, I WATCHED, UM, ONE

OF THE HANNIBAL LECTER

MOVIES. YOU KNOW, SILENCE

OF THE LAMBS. OH, JUST--

YOU'RE JUST BRINGING BACK

BAD MEMORIES. OH. I NEVER--

NEVER WILL WATCH THAT. IN

FACT, I REFUSE TO WATCH

SCARY MOVIES NOW. BECAUSE

IT JUST FEEDS MY WORST SIDE.

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? ALL

THE FEAR. I REFUSE TO WATCH

IT. SO--

I AGREE.

BUT ON TODAY'S SHOW.

WE'LL MEET GIGI ERNETA. SHE

WAS ONCE KNOWN AS THE

SCREAM QUEEN FOR HER ROLES

IN SOME OF HOLLYWOOD'S

SCARIEST MOVIES. TODAY,

SHE'LL SHARE WHAT HAPPENED

WHEN THE DARKNESS ON SET

MOVED INTO HER REAL LIFE.

THANKFULLY GIGI'S STORY

HAS A HAPPY ENDING AND SO

DOES DOROTHY HARTLINGS

BUT SHE WOULD NOT BE HERE

TO TELL HER STORY IF IT

WEREN'T FOR A KNOCK, A

MYSTERIOUS KNOCK AT HER

DOOR.

HMM. AND WE TAKE

ANOTHER LOOK BACK AT THE

BEST OF 2012 AS I WENT OUT

AND ASKED CANADIANS WHAT

THEY BELIEVED ABOUT FAITH.

BUT FIRST, DO ANGELS

REALLY EXIST? DOROTHY

HARTLING'S STORY WILL

PROVIDE YOU WITH THE

ANSWER.

I THINK THEY DO.

UM-HUM. I KNOW THEY DO.

I HAD, UH, PRIOR LIKE

BEEN ON CHEMOTHERAPY AND

RADIATION AND IT WAS, UH,

BREAST CANCER AND BLADDER

CANCER. AND, UH, YEAH. THEY

WANTED TO OPERATE ON ME

BEFORE CHRISTMAS TO RE--

REMOVE THEM, YOU KNOW,

MULTIPLE CYSTS THAT WERE

OBVIOUSLY, UM, UH, OH BOY,

CANCEROUS. SO I ASKED FOR A

SECOND OPINION AND THEY

SENT ME TO SUNNYBROOK

HOSPITAL IN TORONTO AND,

UH, THEY OPERATED BUT THEY

DID NOT FIND THE MULTIPLE

CYSTS. SO, UM, UH, WE

DECIDED WE WOULD HAVE A

LITTLE TREAT FOR OURSELVES.

SO WE THOUGHT WE WOULD,

UM, UH, GET, UM, YOU KNOW,

LOOK INTO HAVING, UM, UH, A

FIREPLACE INSTALLED IN OUR

HOME. AND, UH, AND SO

HOWEVER THE, UH,

INSPECTORS, THEY CAME AND

INSPECTED EVERYTHING AND,

AND, UH, SAID THEY WERE JUST

AS THEY WERE LEAVING, THEY

SAID NOW YOU CAN TURN ON

THE GAS. AND SO WE WERE

ABOUT TO TURN ON THE GAS

AND, UH, AND THERE WAS AN

INTERRUPTION OF SOMEBODY

KNOCKING ON THE DOOR. AND,

UH, AND WE WERE WONDERING,

YOU KNOW, HOWEVER WE

OPENED THE DOOR AND, UH,

THE INSPECTORS WHO HAD

JUST FINISHED INSPECTING THE

GAS, THEY WERE JUST PULLING

OUT OF THE DRIVEWAY AND

THIS OTHER PERSON AT THE,

UH, FRONT DOOR SAYING WE

NEED TO CALL THE

CONSUMER'S GAS AND HAVE

THEM COME BACK OVER

QUICKLY. AND HE SPOKE WITH

AUTHORITY. WE COULDN'T

QUESTION LIKE WE JUST--HE

JUST SEEMED TO HAVE

AUTHORITY THAT WE MUST

PHONE THE CONSUMER'S GAS.

AND HE, UM, UH, HE JUST

SHONE. I SAW THIS GLOW ON

HIS FACE AND I WANTED TO

ASK HIM ARE YOU A

CHRISTIAN? BUT I THINK HE

WAS SENT BY THE LORD. I WAS

THINKING ABOUT, OH, YOU

KNOW, HE--HE LOOKS SO

DIFFERENT LIKE HE WAS FILLED

WITH LOVE AND COMPASSION.

AND, UH, AS SOON AS WE

CLOSED THE DOOR I, UH, LIKE

WE HAVE THESE HUGE

WINDOWS RIGHT BESIDES THE

DOOR AND, UH, AND SO MY

HUSBAND AND I--WELL I DID

PARTICULARLY, YOU KNOW,

LOOKED OUT THE WINDOW

BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, IT'S A

BIG WINDOW. AND, UH, AND

HE--HE WAS NOWHERE TO BE

SEEN. LIKE WE HAD THIS HUGE

BIG DRIVEWAY AND STEPS, A

BIG VERANDA. AND, YOU

KNOW, AND, UH, UH, HE DID

NOT WALK DOWN THE STEPS OR

DOWN THE DRIVEWAY. THERE

WAS NO CAR AND HE JUST

DISAPPEARED. SO HE WOULD

HAVE HAD TO JUMP OVER THE

RAILS SO WHY WOULD HE DO

THAT? AND, UH, HE, UM, WE

HAVE A HUGE VERANDA,

RIGHT? LIKE ABOUT OH, EIGHT

CEMENT STEPS TYPE OF THING

OFF THE VERANDA AND THEN

YOU HAVE TO TAKE FIVE OR SIX

STEPS BEFORE YOU GET TO THE

STEPS ITSELF, YOU KNOW?

AND, UM, UH, AND THEN WE

HAVE A HUGE DRIVEWAY.

OKAY, MAYBE POSSIBLY HE

DOESN'T OWN A CAR. BUT, I

MEAN, WHERE COULD HE GO? I

MEAN, WE MOVED WITHIN A

SECOND, LESS THAN THAT

GOING FROM THE DOOR TO THE

WINDOW. SO WHERE COULD HE

GO? WE WERE BOTH AT THE

DOOR, AND WE CLOSED THE

DOOR AND I SAID TO MY

HUSBAND COULD HE HAVE

BEEN AN ANGEL? AND MY

HUSBAND QUICKLY RAN TO THE

PHONE AND HE PHONED, UH,

THE CONSUMER'S GAS AND

THEY SENT SOMEBODY OVER

VERY QUICKLY. AND, UH, THEY

CAME OVER AND THEY SAID

THE FUMES FROM THE GAS

WERE SURROUNDING THE

HOUSE. THERE COULD HAVE

BEEN AN EXPLOSION. AND, UM,

SO WE JUST PRAISED THE LORD.

YOU KNOW, UM, IT COULD

HAVE BEEN DEVASTATING

BECAUSE WE HAD A FIRE PRIOR

TO THAT, UH, YOU KNOW?

SOME WHILE AGO PRIOR. AND,

UM, OH YEAH. HE WAS

DEFINITELY AN ANGEL. GOD

DOES SEND ANGELS. LIKE I

JUST--YES, THERE WAS A FIRE

AND I WAS GOING THROUGH

CANCER AT THE SAME TIME.

MY HUSBAND PASSED AWAY.

THE TRUTH IS, WHAT THE DEVIL

MEANS FOR EVIL, I MEAN, GOD

DIDN'T CAUSE THE CANCER, IT--

CANCER CAME ABOUT. SO IF I

HAD TO GO INTO DEPRESSION

AND ANXIETY, THINGS COULD

HAVE GOTTEN WORSE. UH, THE

BLESSINGS, ALL THE BLESSINGS

THAT WE HAVE ON THIS EARTH

HAVE COME FROM GOD. EVERY

BLESSING WE HAVE, AND WE'VE

GOT TO GIVE GOD THE GLORY

BECAUSE THERE ARE ANGELS.

I'VE SEEN MANY ANGELS BUT

I'VE GIVEN THIS ONE TODAY AS

AN EXAMPLE.

I LOVE THAT STORY. YOU

KNOW, I'M CONVINCED THAT

THERE IS GOING TO BE MOVIE

NIGHTS IN HEAVEN AND IT

AIN'T GOING TO BE NO SCARY

MOVIES. IT'S GOING TO BE

ABOUT HOW ALL OF THE TIMES

THAT GOD INTERSECTED OUR

LIVES. YOU KNOW WHEN YOU

COULDN'T FIND YOUR KEYS

AND YOU WERE JUST SO

FRUSTRATED? MAYBE THAT

WAS AN ANGEL JUST PUTTING

YOUR KEYS UNDER THAT

PILLOW SO THAT YOU WOULD

BE DELAYED JUST A LITTLE BIT

BECAUSE THERE WAS GOING TO

BE AN ACCIDENT ON THAT

HIGHWAY 1 AND NOBODY

WANTED YOU TO BE RIGHT IN

THE MIDDLE OF IT. THINK

ABOUT ALL THE TIMES THAT

THINGS JUST WERE A LITTLE

WEIRD AND YOU'RE LIKE AM I

IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE? I

MEAN, I ROUTINELY KIND OF

LIVE IN THAT WORLD LIKE

WHAT'S GOING ON? I LOSE

STUFF AND THEN I FIND IT IN

THE STRANGEST PLACES. I JUST

WONDER, THE WORD OF GOD

SAYS TO BE CAREFUL TO

ENTERTAIN STRANGERS

BECAUSE THEY COULD BE

ANGELS AND YOU'RE UNAWARE

OF IT. THIS CAUSES ME TO BE

KIND TO THE--THE MOST, YOU

KNOW, TO THE LOWLIEST

PEOPLE THAT YOU FIND

AROUND YOU. TO THAT

BEGGAR ON THE STREET, TO

THAT ONE WHO NEEDS, YOU

KNOW, A BITE TO EAT OR IS

BEGGING FOR MONEY. YOU

KNOW, ONCE IN A WHILE, I

WONDER IF GOD JUST DOESN'T

TEST THE COMPASSION IN OUR

HEARTS. IT'S NOT THAT WE

WOULD, UM, YOU KNOW, HELP

PEOPLE TO STAY IN ADDICTION

BY GIVING THEM CASH, BUT

DOES GOD EVER WANT TO JUST

TEST US BY PUTTING AN ANGEL

THAT'S NOT EVEN ATTRACTIVE

RIGHT IN FRONT OF US? WE

NEVER KNOW WHO IT IS. AND,

UH, I LOVE THAT MOVIE BRUCE

ALMIGHTY. DO YOU

REMEMBER THE END OF THAT

MOVIE WHERE, UM, WHERE

THE--THE FELLOW WHO PLAYED

GOD AND BRIAN'S GOING TO

REMIND ME OF HIS NAME IN A

MOMENT. BUT AT THE END HE'S

A BEGGAR ON THE STREET

HOLDING ONE OF THOSE CRAZY

SIGNS AND HE LOOKS LIKE HE'S

CRAZY BUT IT'S THE FACE OF

GOD. AND, UH, SO OFTEN BRIAN

I THINK ABOUT IN LIFE WE

LOOK TO THE NATURAL.

YEAH.

AND WE--YOU KNOW, WE

FEEL--I KNOW YOU'RE REAL,

YOU'RE NOT AN ANGEL. BUT

WHAT ARE THOSE THINGS THAT

WE DON'T UNDERSTAND AND

WE DON'T SEE AROUND US?

GOD'S GOT ANGELS WATCHING

OVER US.

WELL, I THINK WHAT YOU'RE

SAYING LAURA-LYNN BE AND

WHAT PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW,

MORGAN FREEMAN IS THE GUY

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

THAT'S IT. YEAH. MORGAN

FREEMAN.

BUT WHAT--WHAT PEOPLE

NEED TO UNDERSTAND IS

WE'RE JUST--WE'RE NOT JUST

PHYSICAL BEINGS HAVING A

TEMPER OR SPIRITUAL

EXPERIENCE JUST WATCHING

THIS TIME. BUT WE ARE

SPIRITUAL BEINGS HAVING A

TEMPORARY PHYSICAL

EXPERIENCE. I'D LIKE TO GET

SOMETHING INTO YOUR HANDS.

THIS IS SUPERNATURAL. YOU

KNOW, WE HAVE MORE

REPORTED SITES OF ANGELS IN

THE NEW TESTAMENT,

ESPECIALLY IN THE TIME WHEN

JESUS WAS BORN AND THE

ANGELS SPOKE TO THE

SHEPHERDS AND GOING

BEYOND. SO ANGELS ARE WITH

US NOW. AND GOD SPEAKS

TODAY. WE BELIEVE THAT. I

WANT YOU TO CALL THAT

NUMBER ON SCREEN. 1-855-759-

0700. BUT I WANT TO PRAY

WITH YOU THAT GOD WOULD

OPEN UP YOUR EYES AND

ALLOW YOU TO NOW MOVE

INTO THE PLACE. FATHER, IN

JESUS' NAME, I PRAY THAT

THERE WOULD BE NO

COINCIDENCE, NO LONGER

WILL WE USE THAT WORD BUT

WE WILL SAY IT'S A DIVINE

INCIDENT BECAUSE YOU HAVE

A PLAN FOR OUR LIVES. NOW

PLEASE OPEN THE EYES OF

YOUR SONS AND YOUR

DAUGHTERS THAT THEY COULD

RECEIVE YOUR PURPOSE AND

PLAN IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.

AMEN, IF YOU PRAYED THAT

PRAYER, CALL THE NUMBER ON

YOUR SCREEN. 1-855-759-0700.

OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY.

ASK FOR THE

SUPERNATURAL.

DADDY?

YEAH BUDDY.

HOW MANY NICKELS IN A

DOLLAR?

THERE ARE 20 NICKELS IN A

DOLLAR.

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.

(MUSIC)

I RECENTLY TRAVELED TO

MY BIRTH PLACE UGANDA EAST

AFRICA ON ONE OF THOSE LONG

OVERNIGHT FLIGHTS. WE ATE

OUR MEAL AND THE CLEAN UP

WAS DONE AND THE LIGHTS

WERE TURNED OFF IN THE

CABIN SO THAT EVERYONE

COULD GET SOME REST. I

FOUND MYSELF WIDE AWAKE

AND DRAWN TO LOOK OUT AT

THE BLACKNESS OF THE NIGHT

SKY FROM MY WINDOW SEAT. I

HAD NEVER SEEN A SIGHT LIKE

THIS BEFORE. THE STARS WERE

THE MOST BRIGHT AND MOST

BEAUTIFUL THAT I HAD EVER

WITNESSED. PSALMS 8:3-5

CAME TO MY MIND. "WHEN I

VIEW AND CONSIDER YOUR

HEAVENS, THE WORK OF YOUR

FINGERS, THE MOON AND THE

STARS WHICH YOU HAVE

ORDAINED AND ESTABLISHED.

WHAT IS MAN THAT YOU ARE

MINDFUL OF HIM OR THE SON

OF MAN THAT YOU CARE FOR

HIM. YET YOU HAVE MADE HIM

BUT A LITTLE LOWER THAN

GOD OR THE HEAVENLY BEINGS

AND YOU HAVE CROWNED HIM

WITH GLORY AND HONOR." I

WAS SO SMALL IN COMPARISON

TO THIS VAST SKY AND ON THIS

INCREDIBLE EVENING, THE BIG

DIPPER WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF

ME AT THE VERY CENTER OF

MY VIEW. MY EYES TOOK IT IN

ITS MAJESTY. IN FACT, ALL THE

STARS IN THE HEAVENS WERE

STUNNINGLY BRIGHT. I FELT

USHERED INTO A SERENITY I

REALLY NEEDED IN LIGHT OF

MY BUSY SCHEDULE. AND I

NOTED THAT I COULDN'T SEE

THE GROUND MOVING BENEATH

US IN ITS USUAL WAY. IT WAS

PITCH-BLACK. I LOOKED IT THE

WING OF THE PLANE AND AS IT

STRETCHED MOTIONLESS

AGAINST THE BACK DROP OF

THE STARLIT EXPANSE AND IT

WAS A VERY STRANGE SITE AS I

FOLLOWED THE TIP OF THE

WING STRAIGHT UP TO THE

HANDLE OF THE

CONSTELLATION AND THERE

WAS NO WAY TO TELL THAT WE

WERE IN MOTION. I COULDN'T

SEE ANYTHING MOVING. I

CHECKED OUR AIR SPEED

THROUGH THE FLIGHT

TRACKING SYSTEM ON THE TV

CONSUL IN THE SEAT IN FRONT

OF ME AND WE WERE MOVING

AT 883 KILOMETERS PER HOUR.

THAT'S REALLY FAST AND YET

IT APPEARS AS IF THE AIRCRAFT

WAS SUSPENDED MOTIONLESS

WITH THE STARS TWINKLING

LIKE DIAMONDS ALL AROUND. I

THOUGHT TO MYSELF, IT'S AS IF

I'M JUST A SPECK OF DUST

FLOATING. IN COMPARISON TO

THIS BREATHTAKING DISPLAY, I

KNEW THAT I WAS JUST ONE

TINY PIECE OF GOD'S

CREATION. I PONDERED THAT

NO MATTER HOW FAST I MIGHT

BE GOING PERHAPS AT

BREAKNECK SPEED THROUGH

LIFE, GOD, HE STAYS THE SAME.

THIS WAS A VISUAL FOR ME. HE

NEVER CHANGES.

CONSIDERING THE SOMETIMES

TURBULENT, INCREDIBLY RAPID

RIDE THROUGH LIFE, I REALIZE

THAT GOD IS THE UNWAVERING

HOPE THAT WE CAN CLING TO

DURING THIS JOURNEY.

PSALMS 36:7 SAYS, "HOW

PRECIOUS IS YOUR STEAD FAST

LOVE, OH GOD. THE CHILDREN

OF MEN TAKE REFUGE, THEY

PUT THEIR TRUST UNDER THE

SHADOW OF YOUR WING." THAT

NIGHT, I CAUGHT A GLIMPSE OF

HOW GOD CARRIES AND HE

COVERS US. YES, THERE IS A

VAST DISTANCE THAT WE WILL

TRAVEL. BUT IF WE REMAIN

CONFIDENT IN HIS STEADFAST

LOVE, AND IN HIS POWERFUL

ABILITY TO GUIDE US AND

HOLD US IN PLACE, WE WILL

NOT BE MOVED. WE WILL STAY

FIXED AND ATTACHED TO THE

COURSE THAT HE HAS

DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR

US.

AMEN. YOU KNOW, AS

LAURA-LYNN WAS SHARING

ABOUT HER TRIP TO AFRICA,

YOU KNOW, I COULDN'T HELP

BUT THINK ABOUT THE 119TH

PSALM. OH THAT OUR WAYS

WERE DIRECTED TO KEEP YOUR

STATUTES, THEN WE WOULD

NOT BE ASHAMED WHEN WE

LOOK INTO ALL YOUR

COMMANDMENTS. SAID LORD, I

DELIGHT IN YOUR WILL. YOU

KNOW, WHEN YOU DELIGHT IN

GOD'S WILL, GOD DELIGHTS IN

US. AND THERE'S A VERY

SIMPLE WAY EVEN DURING THIS

TIME WHEN YOU'RE IN YOUR

JAMMIES AND YOU TALK

ABOUT BOXING DAY,

ACKNOWLEDGE GOD. PUT HIM

FIRST. MAKE THAT YOUR

RESOLUTION THIS YEAR

BEFORE YOU EAT, BEFORE YOU

DRINK, BEFORE YOU GO OUT,

BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING

AND WATCH WHAT GOD'S

GOING TO DO. YOU MAY FEEL

LIKE IT'S MOTIONLESS, BUT

HE'S GOING TO MOVE YOU WITH

LOCOMOTIVE POWER. WELL,

COMING UP NEXT, SOME OF OUR

FAVORITES FROM THE YEAR OF

2012. THIS IS RYAN AND LAURA-

LYNN.

SO RYAN, YOU'RE OUT HERE

AT, UH, WHITE ROCK. HOW IS

YOUR DAY GOING?

UM, YEAH. NO. IT'S BEEN

COOL. I ACTUALLY GOT BACK

FROM WORK, WE HAD DINNER,

AND I CAME DOWN HERE AND

SPENT SOME TIME WITH GOD

AND, UH, A LOT OF STUFF'S

GOING IN MY LIFE IS THAT, UM,

JUST KIND OF TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT WHAT I'M

SUPPOSED TO DO IN LIFE AND

JUST SOME SITUATIONS GOING

ON AND, UM, IT'S BEEN REALLY

COOL BECAUSE I JUST KIND OF

KEPT REBELLING AGAINST GOD

AND, UM, YOU KNOW, MESSING

UP AND STUFF. AND, UH, BUT I

KNEW THAT IN MY HEART I

NEED TO GET IT RIGHT WITH

GOD BECAUSE I COULDN'T KEEP

LEAVE--LIVING THE WAY I

WANTED TO LIVE MY LIFE AND

NEVER REALLY WORKS OUT SO

WELL. SO I JUST KNEW THAT I

HAD TO MAKE A DECISION OF

NO MATTER, YOU KNOW,

WHAT'S GOING ON IN MY LIFE,

UM, TO CHOOSE GOD OVER

EVERYTHING EVEN IF IT'S BAD

OR GOOD AND JUST TRUST GOD

AND SO--

NOW WHAT KIND OF THINGS

DO YOU DO TO REALLY, UM,

INVEST IN THE FAITH THAT YOU

HAVE? LIKE READING THE

WORD AND--

YEAH. I THINK LIKE YEAH.

FOR ME IT'S READING THE

WORD AND WHICH I'VE BEEN

DOING LATELY SO I NEED TO--

THAT'S WHAT I JUST SORT OF

MADE TODAY IS I JUST--

YOU MADE THAT DECISION

TODAY?

WELL, A LONG TIME AGO

BUT YES, RESTARTING AGAIN.

RESTARTING AGAIN?

YES, AGAIN, YEAH.

YEAH. BECAUSE YOU GOT A

LITTLE BIT OFF TRACK, RIGHT?

EXACTLY. YEAH.

WHAT IS THE MOST

PROFOUND THING THAT--THAT

GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU WHEN

YOU'VE BEEN IN A TIME OF

CRISIS?

UM, I THINK HE'S JUST GIVEN

ME A PEACE LIKE TODAY

INCIDENTALLY, IT'S JUST LIKE I

WAS WORKING AND I JUST--HE'S

LIKE RYAN, DO YOU WANT TO

LIVE THIS WAY? OR IT'S LIKE

DO YOU WANT TO LIVE MY

WAY? BECAUSE YOUR WAY'S

NOT WORKING OUT. AND--AND

I JUST GO LIKE THERE'S NO

WAY I CAN LIVE THIS LIFE

WITHOUT GOD. I MEAN,

THERE'S JUST NO POINT. AND

GOD'S MY EVERYTHING AND,

UM, I THINK HE JUST BRINGS

THAT PEACE AND HE'S KIND OF

SPEAKS IN THAT STILL, SMALL

VOICE OF LIKE I AM HERE AND

LIKE I AM ALIVE AND I LIVE IN

YOU AND YOU'RE AMAZING

AND LIKE I LOVE YOU AND JUST

THAT KIND OF--THAT KIND OF

COMES OVER YOU AND YOU

JUST KIND OF EXPERIENCE

THAT.

WOW, WOW.

YEAH. SO--

WELL, YOU ARE AMAZING

RYAN. YOU ARE AMAZING AND

GOD LOVES YOU. YOU ARE--

YOUR SPIRIT IS SO LARGE IN

HIM.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

SHARING THOSE BEAUTIFUL

WORDS.

NO PROBLEM. THANK YOU

SO MUCH.

ALL RIGHT. GOD BLESS YOU.

GOD BLESS.

(MUSIC)

YOU KNOW, AT THE END

THERE WHEN I TOLD RYAN

THAT, UH, HIS SPIRIT JUST FELT

SO LARGE. IT WAS SO TRUE.

LIKE YOU COULD JUST FEEL THE

LOVE OF GOD EMANATING

FROM THIS YOUNG MAN AND I

APPRECIATE HIM TALKING TO

ME AND THAT HE IS MAKING A

RENEWED COMMITMENT TO

FOLLOW GOD AND TO FOLLOW

HIM MORE INTENSELY.

ESPECIALLY THIS IS A NEW

(MUSIC)

WELCOME BACK. UP NEXT,

SEE WHAT HAPPENED WHEN

HOLLYWOOD SCREAM QUEEN

BEGAN NOTICING HER WORK

WAS GOING HOME WITH HER.

I REMEMBER SITTING THERE

AND--AND THE CURTAIN

OPENED AND IT--IT WAS LIKE I

REALIZED AT THAT MOMENT

THIS WAS IT FOR ME. THIS IS

WHERE I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE.

GIGI ERNETA WAS BORN IN

NEW YORK AND BEGAN HER

PROFESSIONAL PERFORMING

CAREER AT THE AGE OF 8.

WHEN HER PARENTS MOVED TO

HOUSTON. SHE JOINED THE

HOUSTON BALLET COMPANY

AND WAS CHOSEN FOR A LEAD

CHILD ROLE IN THE

NUTCRACKER.

I GOT MY FIRST DANCING

CONTRACT WHEN I WAS 14. I

AUDITIONED FOR MY FIRST

COMMERCIAL WHEN I WAS 15

AND I DID IT IN ENGLISH AND

SPANISH FOR MCDONALD'S.

AND, UH, THAT'S HOW IT

STARTED.

GIGI CONTINUED HER

ACTING AND DANCE UNTIL THE

END OF HIGH SCHOOL. SHE

RECEIVED NUMEROUS AWARDS

AND RECEIVED A SCHOLARSHIP

TO THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS

DRAMA DEPARTMENT. DURING

HER TIME IN COLLEGE, GIGI

WORKED IN RADIO AND

MARRIED. AS HER CAREER

DEVELOPED, SHE FELT IT WAS

TIME TO MOVE TO

HOLLYWOOD.

HI, IT'S ME, HOLLYWOOD'S

GOSSIP PRINCESS AND DO I

HAVE A SCOOP FOR YOU.

I REALIZED THAT

HOLLYWOOD WAS REALLY

HARD AND THERE WERE PEOPLE

WHO KEPT SAYING, OH, YOU

KNOW, YOU CAN DO THAT, IT

WON'T HURT YOUR CAREER,

YOU KNOW, IT'S WORK. AND I

HAD STARTED TO TAKE JOBS

THAT I SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN

TAKING. THEY WERE LATE

NIGHT AND THEY WERE THESE

REALLY RACY MOVIES THAT,

YOU KNOW, THEY'RE NOT

PORNOGRAPHY BUT THEY'RE

REALLY PUSHING THE

THRESHOLD. I DID ZOMBIE

FILMS, I DID VAMPIRE FILMS.

SOON GIGI WAS KNOWN FOR

HER EXTENSIVE WORK IN

HORROR FILMS AND WAS

QUICKLY LABELED A SCREAM

QUEEN.

I--I THINK THAT THE

DARKNESS THAT I WAS

EXPERIENCING ON THE SET

STARTED TO MANIFEST ITSELF

IN--IN MY LIFE. PEOPLE WERE

DYING AND EVERYTHING IN

THESE MOVIES AND THERE WAS

A LOT OF BLOOD AND GUTS. IT

WAS ALL DARKNESS.

IN 2007 WHILE GIGI'S CAREER

AS A SCREAM QUEEN WAS

FLOURISHING, AT HOME, HER

MARRIAGE FELL APART.

MY LIFE GOT REALLY OUT OF

CONTROL. AND IN MY DIVORCE,

IT--IT BLEW UP. AND I NEEDED

HELP AFTER MY DIVORCE. I

WAS RAISED CATHOLIC, I

UNDERSTOOD THE PRIEST

DOING, UM, COMMUNION, BUT I

DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHO

CHRIST WAS. I USED TO SAY TO

PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, I KEEP

CALLING GOD AND HE'S GIVING

ME THE BUSY SIGNAL. I JUST

KNEW THAT THERE WAS

SOMETHING MISSING BETWEEN

ME AND GOD. I HAD PEOPLE

COMING INTO MY LIFE, HAD

THE CASTING DIRECTOR COME

INTO MY LIFE. I HAD ANOTHER

GIRL WHO WAS A WARDROBE

LADY, UM, COME INTO MY LIFE

AND TELL ME, YOU KNOW, YOU

REALLY OUGHT TO READ THE

BIBLE AND WHERE--WHERE ARE

YOU WITH GOD?

DURING THIS TIME, A FRIEND

OFFERED GIGI A PLACE TO STAY

WHILE SHE GOT BACK ON HER

FEET. ONE NIGHT, SHE TRIED

READING THE BIBLE.

ALL THROUGH ALL THIS I

WAS CRYING OUT TO THE LORD

AND I SAID THIS ISN'T MAKING

ANY SENSE. I DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE

DOING HERE. AT THAT POINT

WAS MY COMPLETE

RESIGNATION. I SAID I CAN'T

DO THIS ANY MORE, THAT'S IT.

AND I WOULD JUST KEPT

CRYING AND CRYING IN THE

MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

THAT SAME NIGHT, GIGI

NOTICED A NOISE IN THE

BEDROOM. THE NEXT

MORNING, SHE ASKED HER

FRIEND TO COME TO HER

ROOM AND LISTEN FOR THE

NOISE.

IT SOUNDED LIKE A

GARGLING NOISE AND SHE

GOES GOSH, IT SOUNDS LIKE--IT

SOUNDS LIKE THE INSIDE OF A

WHALE.

GIGI CALLED HER CHRISTIAN

FRIEND AND TOLD HER ABOUT

THE NOISES.

SHE'S LAUGHING, SHE SAYS

READ--READ JONAH. JUST READ

JONAH AND CALL ME BACK.

SHE OPENED TO THE BOOK

OF JONAH WHICH TOLD OF A

MAN WHO HAD DISOBEYED GOD

AND BEEN SWALLOWED IN THE

BELLY OF A WHALE FOR THREE

DAYS.

EVERY SINGLE WORD CAME

OUT AND JUST JUMPED RIGHT IN

MY HEART AND THAT WAS IT.

IT WAS LIKE I KNEW THE

ANSWER WAS RIGHT IN FRONT

OF ME. I REALIZED THAT

READING THE BIBLE AND--AND

UNDERSTANDING THAT CHRIST

DIED FOR MY SINS THAT I

COULD BE HERE FOR MY WHOLE

LIFE REALLY IT JUST CHANGED.

JUST BAM. AND I WAS SO

EXCITED. UH, I DIDN'T--I

REALLY DIDN'T UNDERSTAND

WHAT WAS HAPPENING, BUT I

WAS--I WAS READY FOR CHRIST.

AFTER THAT, IT WAS LIKE THAT

BUSY SIGNAL WENT AWAY AND

THE CONNECTION WAS DIRECT.

GIGI HAD SOME HARD

DECISIONS TO MAKE ABOUT

HER CAREER. SEVERAL

MONTHS LATER, SHE LEFT HER

HORROR ROLES AND MOVED

BACK TO TEXAS.

WHEN I LEFT CALIFORNIA, I

IMMEDIATELY GOT IN A BIBLE-

BASED CHURCH AND STARTED

TO SPEND LOTS OF TIME WITH

THE LORD. I REALIZED IT

WASN'T JUST MY WORK THAT

HAD TO CHANGE, BUT IT--THE

WAY I LIVED HAD TO CHANGE.

AND IT WAS AMAZING RIGHT

AWAY I STARTED GETTING

BLESSED WITH WORK THAT

WAS QUALITY, QUALITY WORK

AND THINGS I WOULDN'T

AUDITION FOR, THEY WOULD

JUST COME TO ME.

GIGI CO--STARS WITH

WILLIAM DEVANE AND JOHN

SCHNEIDER IN HER MOST

RECENT FILM FLAG OF MY

FATHER. THE FAITH-BASED

FILM TACKLES THE ISSUE OF

POST TRAUMATIC STRESS

DISORDER IN SOLDIERS. IT WAS

RECENTLY AWARDED BEST

NARRATIVE FEATURE AT THE GI

FILM FESTIVAL.

I ACTUALLY WAS IN THE

THEATER WITH SOLDIERS AND

SOME OF THEM WEEPING AND I

REALIZED THAT THE HEALING

WAS HAPPENING. I REALIZED

THAT MY WHOLE LIFE I WAS

SUPPOSED TO--TO BE DOING

THIS. I ALWAYS WANTED

PEOPLE TO KNOW A DEEPER

FEELING INSIDE. A DEEPER

EMOTION, A DEEPER

UNDERSTANDING. AND NOW IT

WAS ACTUALLY COMING

THROUGH, IT WAS HAPPENING.

SO NOW I'M REACHING OUT A

LOVE, IT'S A TOTALLY

DIFFERENT THING. AND THAT'S

ONLY GOING TO COME FROM

CHRIST.

YOU KNOW, THE AMAZING

THING ABOUT THIS TESTIMONY

IS GIGI, SHE KEPT GETTING

BUSY SIGNALS UNTIL SHE

REALLY HEARD FROM THE

WORD OF GOD WHAT GOD WAS

SAYING. AND THEN IT BECAME

CRYSTAL CLEAR FIBER OPTIC,

SHE WAS ABLE TO HEAR

EXACTLY WHAT GOD WANTED

OF GIGI. AND GOD TURN IT

AROUND. AND I BELIEVE THAT

HE'S GOING TO DO THAT FOR

YOU AS WELL. YOU KNOW, YOU

MIGHT BE SITTING AROUND IN

YOUR JAMMIES RIGHT NOW

AND SAYING, YOU KNOW,

THINGS HAVEN'T BEEN GOING

SO WELL. BUT I WANT MY 2013

TO BE BETTER THAN MY 2012.

NOW LET ME GIVE YOU WHAT--

WHAT GIGI RECEIVED AS WELL

BECAUSE SHE HEARD A

GURGLING SOUND THAT

SOUNDED LIKE WHALES AND,

UH, AND SHE WAS IN A WHALE

OF A MESS. SO HER FRIEND

TOLD HER GO TO THE BOOK OF

JONAH AND THIS IS WHAT IT

SAYS. IN THE BOOK OF JONAH,

ACTUALLY THE PROPHET IS

TOLD GO TO NINEVEH. BUT HE

GOES TO TIMBUKTU AS FAR

AWAY FROM WHERE GOD TOLD

HIM TO GO AS POSSIBLE. AND

GOD ALLOWED A SHIP TO BE

WAITING FOR JONAH AND IT

SAYS NINE TIMES IN THAT FIRST

CHAPTER HE WENT DOWN,

DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN.

AND THAT SHIP STARTED GOING

DOWN AND THESE SEASONED,

UH, SEAMEN STARTED CRYING

OUT AND THEY SAW HIM

SLEEPING AND THEY SAID

THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG

BECAUSE YOU SHOULD BE

SCREAMING JUST LIKE WE ARE

RIPPING YOUR HAIR OUT. YOUR

HAIR SHOULD BE ON FIRE. BUT,

UH, HE SAID IT'S ME WHY THIS

IS GOING ON. YOU MIGHT BE

THE JONAH IN THE HOUSE

RIGHT NOW BECAUSE, UH,

GOD'S GETTING YOUR

ATTENTION. IT SAID IN THE

SECOND CHAPTER IN THE FIRST

VERSE, IT SAYS, "I CRIED OUT

TO THE LORD BECAUSE OF MY

AFFLICTION AND HE ANSWERED

ME." THAT SIMPLE. IF YOU CRY

OUT TODAY, HE'LL ANSWER

YOU AND HE'LL TURN YOUR

WHALE OF A MESS INTO A

MASTERPIECE.

HMM, I THINK EVERY ONE OF

US, BRIAN HAVE, UM, BEEN IN A

PLACE IN LIFE WHERE, UH, WE

ARE RUNNING TO TIMBUKTU

WHEN GOD HAS CALLED US TO

ANOTHER PLACE. FOR US, OUR

FAMILY, WE WENT TO

TUKTOYAKTUK, BUT THAT

HAPPENED TO BE WHERE GOD

ACTUALLY CALLED US WAS

TUKTOYAKTUK.

BUT IT'S A REAL PLACE,

THOUGH?

YEAH, IT'S A REAL PLACE.

AND, UH, WHEREVER GOD

WANTS YOU TO GO, YOU MIGHT

AS WELL JUST GET THERE.

YEAH.

BECAUSE HE WILL PURSUE

YOU RELENTLESSLY BECAUSE

HE LOVES YOU AND HE HAS A

GREAT PLAN. AND IF WE ARE

OBEDIENT TO HIM AND WE

FOLLOW HARD AFTER HIS CALL,

WE ARE GOING TO END UP IN

GREAT, GREAT, GREAT PLACES.

WHY DON'T YOU DO SOME

BUSINESS WITH GOD RIGHT

NOW AND JUST SAY GOD, HELP

ME, IN JESUS' NAME. HE HEARD

YOU. 1-855-759-0700. WE SURE

LOOK FORWARD TO BEING

WITH ALL OF YOU AGAIN SOON.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, I'M

LAURA-LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON.

AND I'M BRIAN WARREN.

HAVE A GREAT DAY CANADA.

GOD BLESS.
