Sisters Barbara Shores and Helen Shores Lee remember growing up in Alabama during the turbulent Civil Rights era. Plus, when 1200 pounds of equine fell on Amy's leg she wondered how life would change. Read Transcript


REPORTER: AT HOME WITH THE

LONE STAR STATE'S KNEWEST

SENATOR.

WHY TED CRUISE IS CALLING IT THE

NEWEST HOPE.

IT IS A TEST TO SEE WHAT WE

THE PEOPLE CAN DO STANDING

TOGETHER.

REPORTER: PLUS THE CIVIL

RIGHT'S HERO WHO WAS MARTIN

LUTHER KING'S HERO.

HOW HE FOUGHT FOR CHANGE WHILE

RISKING HIS LIFE.

EVERYONE IN THES HOUSE IS

THROWN OUT.



PAT: WELCOME LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN TO THIS EDITION OF

"700 CLUB." THEY ARE BACK TO

FIGHTING IN WASHINGTON.

PRESIDENT BACK FROM PLAYING GOLF

WITH TIGER WOODS.

HE TOOK LESSONS, I MIGHT ADD

FROM TIGER WOODS FORMER COACH.

MAYBE HIS GOLF GAME IMPROVED.

I DON'T KNOW.

HE IS BACK TO FIGHT THE

REPUBLICANS.

HE IS TALKING ABOUT THE HORRIBLE

THING THAT IS WILL HAPPEN IF

THIS SO-CALLED SEQUESTER IS PUT

IN PLACE.

WALL STREET JOURNAL HAD

SOMETHING INTERESTING.

THEY SAID THIS IS 3.2% OF THE

TOTAL FEDERAL SPENDING.

AND I ASK YOU VERY COGENTLY,

WOULD 3.2% OF YOUR SPENDING

DESTROY YOUR LIFE?

KRISTI IS HERE, I'LL ASK THAT

QUESTION WOULD 3.2% CUT IN YOUR

OVERALL SPENDING DESTROY YOUR

LIFE?

KRISTI: NO, BUT IF THESE CUTS

CONTINUE, IN TERMS OF THE

SPENDING IT IS OKAY.

DON'T KEEP RAISING THE TAXES,

THAT INFEAR RATES ME.

PAT: THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THE

PRESIDENT IS SAYING.

YOU ARE RIGHT.

YOU CAN'T RACE TAXES, 3.2% IS

PEANUTS.

WE HAVE 3.6 TRILLION DOLLAR

BUDGET AND TAKE OUT ABOUT 80 OR

90 BILLION DOLLARS OUT OF IT.

IT IS PEANUTS.

IT IS AMAZING.

AT ANY EVENT.

THIS IS THE GAMESMANSHIP.

THEY WANT TO KEEP GETTING MORE

AND MORE MONEY.

THEY COULD START BY TAKING 550

MILLION DOLLARS GOES TO PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

THE GOVERNMENT COULD STOP THAT

IN A HEART BEAT IF THAT IS THE

BIG PROBLEM AND LEAVE THE LIGHTS

ON THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT.

KRISTI: PAT, IF THEY CAN'T

REACH A DEAL BY MARCH 1ST,

AUTOMATIC SPENDING CUTS GO INTO

EFFECT.

HOW SERIOUS ARE THOSE CUTS?

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER: PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

TURNING UP THE PRESSURE ON

REPUBLICANS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: PEOPLE WILL

LOSE JOBS.

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE MIGHT PICK UP

AGAIN.

REPORTER: IT IS SET TO GO

INTO EFFECT IN 10 DAYS, KNOWN AS

SEQUESTRATION AND INCLUDING THE

MILITARY.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: IF CONGRESS

ALLOWS THIS MEAT CLEAVER

APPROACH, IT WILL JEOPARDIZE

MILITARY READINESS AND EDUCATION

AND ENERGY AND MEDICAL RESEARCH.

REPORTER: PRESIDENT SAID IF

THESE CUTS GO INTO PLACE, IT

WILL BE BECAUSE REPUBLICANS WERE

NOT WILLING TO WORK WITH

DEMOCRATS.

REPUBLICANS ARE FIGHTING BACK.

THEY SAY THE CUTS WILL HAPPEN

AND THE PRESIDENT SHOULD BE HELD

RESPONSIBLE.

THEY ARGUE THE SEQUESTER WAS HIS

IDEA.

SOME POINT OUT HE THREATENED IN

NOVEMBER OF 2011 TO VETO ANY

ATTEMPT TO STOP THE SEQUESTER.

WE ARE HERE BECAUSE THE

PRESIDENT REFUSED TO CUT

SPENDING IN ANY PLACE AND WOUND

UP WITH A SEQUESTER.

REPORTER: CRITICS SAY THEY GO

FAIRLY UNNOTICED.

ENTIRE SEQUESTER CUT IS 80

BILLION OUT OF 400 BILLION

DOLLARS, IT IS BARELY

UNNOTICEABLE.

IT IS WHAT THEY SPEND ON POST-IT

NOTES.

REPORTER: THE PRESIDENT

ALREADY GOT THE TAX INCREASES

DURING NEGOTIATIONS OVER FISCAL

CLIFF.

REPUBLICAN PARTY IS NOT GOING

TO TRADE SPENDING CUTS.

REPORTER: MOT LEY SAYS.

TO MAKE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY

FIGHT WITH THEM AMONGST

THEMSELVES IN THE HOPES TO

CREATE ENOUGH TURMOIL THAT THEY

LOSE CONTROL OF THE PARTY IN

2014.

REPORTER: REPUBLICANS

PROPOSALS INCLUDE ELIMINATING

LOOPHOLES AND SUBSIDIES IN THE

TAX CODE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

PAT: WHAT I THINK THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE SHOULD DO IS

CALL ON THE CONGRESS, ESPECIALLY

REPUBLICANS TO STAND TOUGH ON

THIS ONE.

AGAIN 85 BILLION DOLLARS OUT OF

3.6 TRILLION IT IS NOTHING IN

COMPARISON.

IT IS UP TO THE PRESIDENT.

HE DECIDED ON THIS SEQUESTER.

IT WAS HIS IDEA.

HE WAS GIVEN THE SIMPSON-BO

PLAN.

IN MY OPINION A BRILLIANT PLAN

TO MAKE ACROSS THE BOARD

ANALYSIS OF WHERE THE NEEDS WERE

AND POTENT SHL REVENUE SOURCES,

IT WAS HIS COMMITTEE.

THEY GAVE HIM A REPORT, HE PUTS

IT IN THE BOTTOM DRAWER.

DOESN'T PAY ATTENTION TO IT.

AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE JUST NOT

FOOLS.

HE MUST THINK THEY ARE.

BUT THE TIME HAS COME AND IF YOU

WANT TO LET YOUR VOICE BE KNOWN,

CAPITOL HILL 202-224-2131.

TELL YOUR SENATOR TO HANG TOUGH

ON THIS THING.

KRISTI POINTED OUT, WE DON'T

NEED TAXES RAISED.

THEY ARE HITTING PEOPLE PRETTY

HARD.

THIS 'OBAMACARE' IS HURTING

PEOPLE DRAMATICALLY IN TERMS OF

HEALTH CARE.

IT IS DRAMATIC!

THE DANGER THAT IS TAKING PLACE.

SO ANYHOW, SO MUCH FOR THAT.

IT IS GOING TO BE THE DEBATE.

I THINK IF THERE EVER WAS A

FALSE ONE, IT IS THIS ONE,

PRESIDENT CREATE AS SEQUESTER

AND COMES UP TO FIGHT AGAINST

THE SEQUESTER, REPUBLICANS FAULT

THEY DON'T COME OFF A SEQUESTER

HE PROPOSED.

DANGERS OF BIG SPENDING ARE

CATCHING UP WITH SOME AMERICAN

STATES AS WELL AS THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT, ALSO SOME OF THE

DETROIT.LLY

DETROIT BANKRUPT?

MORE.BB

REPORTER: A STATE REVIEW TEAM

DETERMINED THE MOTOR CITY HAS NO

ATISFACTORY PLAN TO RESOLVE A

FINANCIAL PROBLEM.

BORROWEDNN

YEARS.HE

RICK SNYDER HAS 30 DAYS

TO DECIDE IF AN EMERGENCY

MANAGER NEEDS TO TAKE CHARGE.

IT HAS BEEN A STRAIN ON THE

CITY.

THE CITY HAS BEEN RUNNING

DEFICITS EVERY YEAR SINCE 2005.

THEY HAVE BEEN MASKING WITH

LONG-TERM BORROWINGS.

REPORTER: FINANCIAL EXPERTS

BELIEVE BANKRUPTCY MAYBE

DETROIT'S ONLY REMEDY.

THEY ARE CONFIDENT THERE ARE

OTHER SOLUTIONS IF THE CITY AND

STATE WORK TOGETHER.

PRICE OF OIL MAY GO ABOVE $100.

THAT COULD MEAN HIGHER PRICES AT

THE GAS PUMP.

OIL HAS BEEN MOVING HIGHER IN

THE LAST FEW MONTHS, FROM LOW OF

77 DOLLARS LA$77 LAST SUMMER TO $98 A FEW

WEEKS AGO.

OIL HASN'T BEEN ABOVE $100 FOR

NEARLY A YEAR.

IT COULD TAKE MORE MONEY OUT OF

OUR POCKETS AND ACT AS A DRAG ON

THE ECONOMY.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS PLANNING

A RESPONSE TO THE ONGOING CYBER

ATTACKS.

A UNIT OF CHINA'S MILITARY BASED

IN SHANGHAI.

UNRELENTING CAMPAIGN OF CYBER

CLANSY THAT WROTE "HUNT FOR RED

OCTOBER" HE WROTE ANOTHER BOOK.

A FEW CHINESE GENIUSES PUT ON

SERIOUS HACKING IN THE UNITED

STATES.

THEY ARE ABLE TO CLOSE DOWN WITH

THESE THINGS.

THEY CAN CLOSE DOWN OUR POWER

GRID, SHUT DOWN THE

TRANSPORTATION NETWORK, SHUT

DOWN THE GROUND CONTROL FOR OUR

AIRLINES.

THEY CAN WREAK HAVOC WITH THE

STOCK MARKETS.

IT IS INCREDIBLE HOW BRITTLE WE

ARE IN RELATION TO THE COMPUTERS

WE USE.

THEY ARE SUCH GREAT TOOLS.

IF THEY GO BAD, YOUR SOCIETY IS

IN TROUBLE.

THE CHINESE ARE EXPLOITING IT

FOR ALL THEY ARE WORTH.

NOT JUST THE CHINESE, OTHERS

DOING THE SAME.

RUSSIAN MOBS INVOLVED IN THE

THING, CRIMINAL ENTERPRISES

HACKING IN.

I THINK ONE COMPUTER I AM

FAMILIAR WITH, PERSON IN CHARGE

TOLD ME THEY WERE GETTING

300,000 HITS A DAY TAX AGAINST

EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS.

WHO KNOWS WHAT IS BEING DONE TO

THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT.

TO THINK OUR MILITARY MAYBE

COMPROMISED BY SOMETHING LIKE

THIS.

TIME WE MAKE SOME SERIOUS

CHANGES.

THAT CLANCY BOOK IS A THRILLER,

LEE.

REPORTER: PAT, BENJAMIN

SERIOUS ATTEMPT TO REACH A PEACE

AGREEMENT WITH THE PALESTINIANS,

DO YOU THINK HE'LL DO IT.

PAT: HE NEEDS 61 VOTES.

HE PERSONALLY WON 31.

HE HAS TO HAVE A COALITION.

SHE IS A LABOR PARTY.

THEY HAVE A BIG BLOCK.

HE IS MORE COMFORTABLE WITH HER.

IT IS RATHER UNUSUAL.

THEY ARE ENEMIES, POLITICS MAKES

STRANGE BEDFELLOWS.

I AM NOT SAYING THEY ARE

BEDFELLOWS, IT IS A METAPHOR

USED.

HE IS A GOOD MAN.

I HOPE THEY DON'T TIE HIM DOWN

SO MUCH WHERE HE CAN'T ACT

FORCEFULLY.

LEE?

REPORTER: RACHEL'S EPILEPSY

KEPT HER PRISONER IN HER OWN

HOME.

SHE COULDN'T DRIVE AND AFRAID TO

BE AROUND PEOPLE FOR FEAR OF

HAVING A SEIZURE.

YEAH.

IT WAS ROUGH.

REPORTER: SHE TRIED ALL KINDS

OF MEDICINES WHICH CAUSED

TERRIBLE SIDE EFFECTS AND DIDN'T

EVEN WORK.

THEN SHE HEARD ABOUT EPILEPSY

SURGERY.

EPILEPSY SURGERY CAN HELP

MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN TAKING

MEDICINE ALL THEIR LIFE,

CONTINUING TO SEIZE AND NOT

PARTICIPATE IN LIFE.

REPORTER: DR. WILLIAM BINGMAN

HAS BEEN PERFORMING EPILEPSY

SURGERY FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS

INVOLVES FINDING THE SPOT WHERE

THE SEIZURES ORIGINATE AND

CUTTING IT OUT.

FROM A PERSONALITY

STANDPOINT, WE HAVE ALL SEEN

MOVIES WHERE PEOPLE HAVE FRONTAL

LOBEECTOMIES AND IT IS NOT LIKE

THAT WITH THIS TYPE OF SURGERY.

REPORTER: EPILEPSY SURGERY

HAS A HIGH SUCCESS RATE, TO THE

PATIENT, THE IDEA IS DAUNTING TO

SAY THE LEAST.

I TALKED TO GOD DAILY

THROUGHOUT THE 10 PLUS YEARS OF

HAVING SEIZURES.

CAME TO A POINT WHERE I REALLY

FELT I HEARD HIM SAY NOW IS THE

TIME TO HAVE THE SURGERY.

IT GAVE ME THE COURAGE TO MOVE

FORWARD WITH SOMETHING SO

INCREDIBLY SCARY.

REPORTER: NOW SHE IS SO GLAD

SHE DID.

HER SEIZURES DISAPPEARED, OFF

HER MEDICINE AND LIVES A NORMAL

LIFE.

SHE DRIVES AND EVEN WENT ON A

MISSION TRIP TO AFRICA.

IT WILL BE AS OF THIS

NOW I HAVE BEEN SEIZURE FREE,

PRAISE GOD.

REPORTER: FOR PEOPLE WITH

EPILEPSY WHOSE MEDICINE ISN'T

WORKING, EPILEPSY SURGERY IS A

LITTLE KNOWN OPTION THAT CAN

STOP SEIZURES, LORIE JOHNSON,

CBN NEWS.

REPORTER: GREAT NEWS.

MORE EVIDENCE SITTING TOO LONG

IS BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH,

RESEARCHERS FROM KANSAS STATE

UNIVERSITY STUDIED 63,000

AUSTRALIAN MEN.

THOSE THAT SAT MORE THAN FOUR

HOURS A DAY WERE MORE LIKELY TO

GET CANCER OR ARTHRITIS.

IT INCREASES IF THEY SIT LONGER.

THOSE SITTING MORE THAN EIGHT

HOURS A DAY HAD THE HIGHEST

RISK.

PAT, OUR CONTROL ROOM, THESE

GUYS HAVE HEARD WHAT I SAID.

THEY ARE OUT OF THEIR SEATS AND

STANDING, GOOD FOR THEM!

PAT: WE'LL GIVE THEM --

PEOPLE.

ALL THE PEOPLE IN OFFICES SIT.

THEY WORK BEHIND COMPUTERS.

I AM SITTING HERE.

I READ.

I DON'T READ STANDING UP AND

WALKING AROUND.

KRISTI: IN OFFICES, PAT,

PEOPLE ARE DOING DIFFERENT

THINGS SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO

SIT.

AT "THE 700 CLUB," A LOT OF THE

PRODUCERS THAT HAVE THEIR DESK

RAISED AND THEY STAND.

I AM NOT ONE OF THEM.

[LAUGHTER].

PAT: THEY HAVE SLOW MOVING

TREADMILLS SO PEOPLE ARE WALKING

KRISTI: [LAUGHTER] YOU AND

YOUR HORSES.

KRISTI: TEXAS SENATOR TED

SENATE, PERSONAL HERO AND

GREATEST PASSION AFTER THIS.

REPORTER: WITH TWO KIDS IN

TOW, HER LIFE ON THE STREETS.

DRINKING, WHATEVER I DIDN'T

REPORTER: AND THE STRANGER

THAT RESCUED HER THURSDAY ON

"THE 700 CLUB."

PAT: REPUBLICANS ARE

EARNESTLY SHOPPING AROUND TO

FIND SOMEBODY THAT CAN BE THEIR

STANDARD BEARER.

THEY SEEM TO LIKE HISPANICS

BECAUSE THE HISPANICS ARE THE

LARGEST VOTING BLOCK IN THE

COUNTRY AS THEY KEEP

PROGRESSING.

A MAN NAMED TED CRUZ FROM TEXAS

WHO TOOK HIS PLACE IN THE SENATE

IN JANUARY.

HE QUICKLY BECAME ONE OF THE FEW

REPUBLICANS CALLED A POTENTIAL

ROCK STAR AND SHAKING THINGS UP

IN WASHINGTON.

WHAT MAKE THIS IS LONE STAR

LAWMAKERS TICK?

OUR DAVID BRODY TRAVELED TO

TEXAS TO FIND OUT.

I GOT MONEY.

REPORTER: THIS IS WHAT TRULY

DRIVES TED CRUZ, TIME AT HOME

WITH WIFE AND DAUGHTERS IN

HOUSTON, AWAY FROM WASHINGTON'S

HUSTLE AND BUSTLE.

DILIGENCE, PROVERBS 22:29

TELLS US

REPORTER: FAMILY DEVOTIONS.

ALTHOUGH THEY FACE WORK WHEN

DADDY GOES TO WASHINGTON.

IN THE TWO MONTHS SINCE TED CRUZ

DESCENDED ON WASHINGTON HE HAS A

PATH.

THANKS BE TO GOD.

REPORTER: CRUZ STARTED AS A

POLITICAL UNKNOWN REGISTERING 2%

POLES.

TEA PARTY PACKING AND STRONG

MESSAGE LED TO PRIMARY WIN

AGAINST GOP LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR

AND POWERED HIM TO THE SENATE.

IT WAS BREATHTAKING AND A

TESTAMENT TO THE GRASS ROOTS.

IT WAS A TESTAMENT TO WHAT, WE,

THE PEOPLE CAN DO STANDING

TOGETHER.

REPORTER: CRUZ FAMILY IS USED

TO OVERCOMING ODDS, CUBAN FATHER

ARRIVED IN THE STATES AT AGE 18

SPEAKING NO ENGLISH WITH $100 TO

HIS NAME.

HE WENT FROM A DISHWASHER TO

REGULARLY WORKING SEVEN DAYS A

WEEK AND PUT HIMSELF THROUGH

COLLEGE.

HIS FATHER TRAVELS AS A BAPTIST

PASTOR.

MY DAD HAS BEEN MY HERO MY

WHOLE LIFE.

WHAT I HAVE FOUND MOST

EXTRAORDINARY IS HOW COMMON

SENSE IT IS.

REPORTER: CRUZ'S CAREER

FOLLOWS UP BRINGING WITH

POLITICAL DISCUSSION AROUND THE

FAMILY TABLE.

EVEN MEMORIZED U.S. CONSTITUTION

AS A SUPERSMART HIGH SCHOOLER.

I GAVE 80 SPEECHES ALL OVER

THE STATE ON FREE MARKET

ECONOMICS AND BECAME MY PASSION.

REPORTER: IN COLLEGE, CRUZ

CONNECTED THE CONSTITUTION WITH

HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH.

HIS MENTOR, CHRISTIAN PROFESSOR

AND CONSERVATIVE ROBBIE GEORGE

HELPED HIM EMBRACE CONCEPT OF

LAW.

RIGHTS ARE GIVEN TO EVERY ONE

GOD.@;

ROLE OF GOVERNMENT FUNDAMENTALLY

IS TO PROTECT THE RIGHTS.

REPORTER: THAT BECAME CENTRAL

TO CRUZ'S POLITICAL COURT.

CRUZ, A SOUTHERN BAPTIST DOESN'T

SHY AWAY FROM TALKING ABOUT HIS

FAITH.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, FAITH

IS NOT ORGANIZED RELIGION.

IT IS NOT GOING TO A CHURCH.

IT IS A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP

WITH JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR LORD

AND SAVIOR.

REPORTER: HE IS DETERMINED

NOT TO USE IT AS A WEAPON.

I THINK ANYONE IN POLITICS,

YOU HAVE A SPECIAL OBLIGATION TO

AVOID BEING A PHARISEE, TO AVOID

OSTENTATIOUSLY WRAPPING YOURSELF

IN YOUR FAITH.

REPORTER: CRUZ HAS TAKEN

STRONG STANDS AGAINST INCREASING

DEBT CEILING.

WE DO NOT KNOW FOR EXAMPLE,

IF HE RECEIVED COMPENSATION FOR

GIVING PAID SPEECHES AS EXTREME

OR RADICAL GROUPS.

SENATOR CRUZ HAS GONE OVER

THE LINE.

HE BASICALLY HAS IMPUGNED THE

PAY PATRIOTISM.

REPORTER: FIRST CLASS CRUZ,

NEXT NEW HOME.

ALSO REPUBLICAN BARACK OBAMA.

REPORTER: THEY ARE CALLING

YOU A GOP ROCK STAR, WHAT DO YOU

THINK?

I TRY TO PAY VERY LITTLE

ATTENTION TO THE MEDIA.

IT IS A FICKLE CREATURE.

REPORTER: CRUZ IS FOCUSSED ON

A NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY.

I THINK PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

THE MOST RADICAL PRESIDENT WE

HAVE EVER SEEN.

AN AWFUL LOT OF REPUBLICANS FAIL

TO STAND FOR PRINCIPLE AND

CONTRIBUTED TO THIS MESS.

REPORTER: HEIDI CRUZ KNOWS HE

WILL STAND FOR PRINCIPLE.

ONLY GOT BETTER AND BETTER AS

THINGS GOT TOUGHER.

THAT GAVE VOTERS AND US AS HIS

FAMILY A LOT OF CONFIDENCE HE IS

PRETTY GOOD.

REPORTER: CALM IN THE

STRENGTH IN THE STORM?

INTERESTING.

I AM NOT SURE THAT ASSESSMENT

IS ALWAYS TRUE AROUND THE DINNER

TABLE.

REPORTER: IT IS TRUE IN

NATIONAL POLITICS, DAVID BRODY,

CBN NEWS, IN HOUSTON, TEXAS.

PAT: THINK ABOUT RONALD

REAGAN, HE WAS SMART ENOUGH TO

REALIZE THEY HAD TO MAKE

COMPROMISES FROM TIME TO TIME,

HE DID SO.

AT THE SAME TIME, HE HELD TO

CORE, BASIC AMERICAN, FREE

MARKET PRINCIPLES.

AND THAT IS WHAT ENDEARED HIM TO

THE PEOPLE.

TED CRUZ HAS DEEPLY HELD

BELIEFS, HAVING MEMORIZED THE

CONSTITUTION.

THAT IS SOMETHING.

HAVING GONE TO HARVARD LAW

SCHOOL, HE IS NOT AN

INTELLECTUAL SLOUCH.

HE HAS DEEPLY HELD BELIEFS AND

COMPORT TO WHAT THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE FEEL ABOUT THE COURSE OF

THIS COUNTRY AND THAT IS WHY HE

WINS IN TEXAS.

KEEP YOUR EYE ON HIM.

HE DOESN'T LOOK OR APPEAR QUOTE

HISPANIC.

HE DOESN'T TALK THAT WAY, HE

DOESN'T HAVE ANY ACCENT OR

ANYTHING.

IT LOOKS LIKE THAT MAYBE THE

FUTURE OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

TED CRUZ AND MARCO RUBIO, TWO

RISING STARS, VERY ATTRACTIVE,

INTELLIGENT ARTICULATE PEOPLE.

WE WISH THEM THE BEST.

SURE KRISTI DOES, TOO.

KRISTI: LET'S SWITCH GEARS.

EVERYBODY KNOWS YOU LOVE HORSES.

YOU BEGAN RIDING HORSES AS A

YOUTH.

COMING UP, A WOMAN TRAPPED

BENEATH HER HORSE WITH NO ONE

AROUND TO HELP.

HE GOT HIS HOOF CAUGHT.

HE STRUGGLED.

I WENT DOWN WITH HIM.

THAT WAS THE MOST HELPLESS

FEELING.

KRISTI: A SERIES OF MIRACLES

HELPED THESE TWO WALK OUT OF THE

WOODS WITHOUT A LIMP.

PLUS PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS, WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T GO

AWAY.

@?

KRISTI: EVERY MORNING AMY

JACOBS ENJOYS RIDING HER HORSE,

CHIC.

PAT, WHAT IS THE NAME OF YOUR

HORSE?

PAT: UFANO PORTUGUESE.

I HAVE RIDDEN ABOUT 70 YEARS.

KRISTI: THAT IS A LONG TIME.

PAT: I HAVE HAD A HORSE FALL

ON ME, ONE FALL DOWN WITH ME ON

HIM.

I HAVE HAD ANY NUMBER OF TIMES

BEEN BOUNCED OFF OF PEOPLE THAT

DID SOMETHING.

WHAT ELSE HAVE THEY DONE TO ME?

I AM STILL SURVIVING.

KRISTI: YET YOU SURVIVED.

PAT: I HAVE A HORSE THAT

DOESN'T DO THAT NUTTY STUFF.

WE ARE GOING TO TELL ABOUT --

LARGEST POPULATION OF HORSES.

AMY SAYS SHE AND CHIC HOLD A

SPECIAL CONNECTION.

WE HAVE HAD CHIC SINCE HE WAS

SIX YEARS OLD, 22 YEARS.

HE IS A MEMBER OF THE FAMILY.

ONE OF THE THINGS I LOVE MORE

THAN ANYTHING IS COMING TO THE

BARN AND RIDING MY HORSE BY

OURSELVES.

REPORTER: MAY 2011 AMY AND

CHIC SADDLED UP.

A SPRAWLING 900 ACRE HORSE FARM,

AN HOUR AND A HALF INTO THEIR

JOURNEY, SOMETHING WENT TERRIBLY

WRONG.

WE CAME TO AN AREA ALONG

FLOYD FORT CREEK.

I WAS NOTICING SOMETHING UNDER

HIS FEET WAS MOVING.

NOT NORMAL.IS WAS

WE WERE WALKING ON A PANEL GATE

THAT HAD FALLEN.

REPORTER: PIECE OF METAL LAY

HIDDEN IN THE WEEDS.

OPENINGS ARE 8X6.

HE GOT HIS HOOF CAUGHT.

HE STRUGGLED AND FELL COMPLETELY

OVER.

OF COURSE I WENT DOWN WITH HIM.

MY LEFT FOOT WAS UNDER HIM.

I TRIED TO GET IT OUT FROM UNDER

HIM.

I COULDN'T MOVE IT.

THAT WAS THE MOST HELPLESS

FEELING.

REPORTER: AS THE 1200 POUND

HORSE STRUGGLED TO GET ON HIS

FEET, AMY WAS IN DANGER OF BEING

CRUSHED TO DEATH, ONE WRONG MOVE

COULD BREAK HIS LEG.

HIS MASSIVE BODY WEIGHT

SMOTHERED AMY'S LEG AND AFTER

HOURS COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE.

I SAID A SILENT PRAYER AND

SAID GOD IT IS UP TO YOU.

I WAS IN THE WOODS BY MYSELF.

I COULDN'T YELL TO SOMEONE TO

HELP ME.

IT WAS CHIC AND ME AND I KNEW

GOD HAD TO HELP US.

REPORTER: AMY SAW HER CELL

PHONE STILL HAD A SIGNAL AND

IMMEDIATELY CALLED FOR HELP.

I CALLED MY FAMILY, NO

ANSWER.

ABOUT THE FOURTH CALL WAS TO

TIM, HIS WIFE'S FAMILY ANSWERED

THE PHONE.

HE COULD GET IN CONTACT WITH

PEOPLE THAT COULD HELP ME.

REPORTER: JAMIE SPARKS AND

RESIDENT HORSE TRAINER WAS

CALLED IN FOR HELP.

I WAS GETTING READY TO LEAVE

AND MY DAD CALLED AND SHE WAS ON

THE BACK OF THE FARM.

SHE CAME AROUND BEHIND ME AND

RAKED ME OUT FROM UNDER THE

HORSE RIGHT AS SHE TRIED TO

STAND UP.

THE FEELING CAME BACK IN MY LEG.

I TOLD HER TO LAY ON CHIC'S

HEAD AND KEEP HIM CALM.

HORSES CAN STRESS OUT AND

EVENTUALLY DIE IF THEY ARE TOO

STRESSED.

REPORTER: SOON MORE HELP

ARRIVED.

IT LOOKED SERIOUS TO ME.

HORSE WAS PRETTY CALM.

IF THE HORSE STARTED KICKING, IT

COULD HAVE DONE DAMAGE.

I HAD TO USE THE CUTTERS TO PULL

HIS LEG FREE.

REPORTER: CHIC JUMPED TO HIS

FEET AGAIN VIRTUALLY UNHARMED.

GOD DEFINITELY SAVED ME AND

CHIC.

NEITHER ONE OF US LIMPED OR WENT

TO THE DOCTOR OR LASTING

PROBLEMS.

HE WENT BACK TO THE FIELD TO

GRAIZE, BUSINESS AS USUAL.

IT WAS AMAZING.

WE HAD MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE.

CASCADE OF MIRACLES.

GOD MADE ME HAVE PEACE AND MADE

SURE CHIC DIDN'T PANIC.

GOD CAN MAKE A DONKEY TALK.

HE ANSWERS PRAYER.

I AM GLAD HE ANSWERED THAT ONE

THAT DAY.

KRISTI: I LOVE THAT.

GOD DOES ANSWER PRAYERS.

HE IS A MIRACLE-WORKING GOD,

ISN'T HE, PAT.

PAT: HE HAS THE ANGELS

LOOKING AFTER US.

LET'S PRAY FOR SOME PEOPLE.

WHEN I WAS A KID, MAYBE 13, 14,

SOMETHING, I WAS GALLOPING A

HORSE ACROSS A FIELD.

THERE WAS A SMALL DITCH.

HE STEPPED INTO IT.

NEXT THING YOU KNOW I WAS

LOOKING THAT HORSE STRAIGHT IN

THE EYE, HE WAS COMPLETELY ON

TOP OF ME.

KRISTI: OH MY GOODNESS!

PAT: BROKE THE SADDLE TREE.

I COULD HAVE BEEN SPLIT DOWN THE

MIDDLE.

KRISTI: WERE YOU INJURED?

PAT: NO.

IT WAS JUST THE LORD.

GOD CAN SEND THESE ANGELS.

LET'S PRAY FOR PEOPLE.

KRISTI: LET'S ENCOURAGE THEM

QUICK.

VIEWED STORIES, GO DO CBN.COM.

KRISTI: WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB," THIS IS YOUR

OPPORTUNITY TO ASK PAT WHATEVER

YOU WANT ON A SEGMENT WE LIKE TO

CALL BRING IT ON.

LYNN SAYS WHAT IS THE MEANING OF

THE EXPRESSION GOD IS MARRIED TO

THE BACKSLIDER?

PAT: UM, I THINK THAT IS A

MISUNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THE

BIBLE HAS TO SAY.

FRANKLY, I HAVE NEVER HEARD THE

EXPRESSION BEFORE I WAS ASKED

THAT QUESTION.

WE HAD THE RESEARCH DEPARTMENT

VERY KINDLY REFERRED US TO

JEREMIAH 3:14 WHICH SAYS:

RETURN OH BACKSLIDING CHILDREN

SAYS THE LORD, PERIOD.

FOR I AM MARRIED TO YOU.

WHO IS HE TALKING ABOUT?

HE IS TALKING ABOUT ISRAEL,

JUDAH, EFRAM.

I AM MARRIED TO ISRAEL, NOT

BACKSLIDERS.

TWO FROM ONE FAMILY BRING YOU

THE ZION.

GOD ISN'T MARRIED TO ANY

BACKSLIDERS.

KRISTI: SHERRY SAYS PSALM

139:14, I AM FEARFULLY AND

WONDERFULLY MADE, WHAT IS MEANT

BY "FEARFULLY MADE?"

PAT: LOOK AT SOMEBODY, HE IS

SO SMART IT IS FRIGHTENING, SHE

IS SO BEAUTIFUL IT IS

FRIGHTENING?

KRISTI: NO BUT I'LL TAKE IT.

PAT: THAT IS WHAT IT MEANS,

FEARFUL.

CONSTRUCTION OF OUR BODIES AND

BEINGS SOMETHING THAT COULD

CREATE IN SOMEBODY'S MIND.

SCARY HOW AMAZING WE ARE.

KRISTI: MIKE SAYS I HAVE A

QUESTION ABOUT RECEIVING THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

I DON'T SPEAK IN TONGUES AND

NEVER HEARD AUDIBLE VOICE OF GOD

OR PROPHESIED OR SEEN A VISION.

IS IT POSSIBLE I HAVE A

SPIRITUAL GIFT THAT MANIFESTS

ITSELF IN A DIFFERENT WAY.

THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION.

PAT: SOME HOW, YOU ARE

HOLDING BACK.

YOU HAVEN'T MOVED INTO THE

FULLNESS OF THE LORD.

IN ORDER TO HAVE THOSE

MANIFESTATIONS, FIRST THE

BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

SOME HOW OR OTHER THAT HASN'T

HAPPENED TO YOU.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU NEED

COUNSELING OR SOMEONE TO WORK

WITH YOU OR SURRENDER YOURSELF.

YOU MENTIONED SPEAKING IN

TONGUES.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SPEAK IN

YOUR VENN KNACK LAR AND YOUR

LANGUAGE AT THE SAME TIME.

PEOPLE ARE BUSY ASKING GOD FOR

SOMETHING THEY DON'T HAVE TIME

TO RECEIVE.

IF YOU SAID WOULD YOU LOAN ME A

DOLLAR AND I HELD OUT A DOLLAR.

IF YOU SAID WILL YOU PLEASE GIVE

ME A DOLLAR.

IF YOU SAID WILL YOU PLEASE GIVE

ME THE DOLLAR.

YOU SAID PLEASE, PLEASE, I AM SO

NEEDY.

HERE IS THE DOLLAR.

GOD IS HOLDING OUT THESE GIFTS.

YOU ARE SO BUSY ASKING AND

CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR LACK THAT

YOU ARE NOT RECEIVING THE LORD.

FOCUS IN ON JESUS.

HE IS THE BAPTIZER IN THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

THEN RECEIVE WHAT HE HAS AND

THANK HIM FOR IT.

KRISTI: MAY I ASK YOU IN

TERMS OF SPEAKING FOR TONGUES.

VERY FIRST TIME I EVER SPOKE IN

TONGUES, MY MOTHER TOLD ME THE

SAME ADVISE, OPEN YOUR MOUTH,

KRISTI.

I THOUGHT IT WOULD COME.

I STARTED OPENING MY MOUTH AND

IT CAME OUT.

PAT: BIBLE SAYS THEY SPOKE.

THEY DID THE SPEAKING.

KRISTI: BARBARA SAYS IN

HEAVEN WILL WE BE ONE SEX OR

OTHER WILL WOMEN SHARE EQUALITY

WITH MEN?

PAT: READ THE BIBLE MORE,

JESUS SAID NEITHER MARRIED BUT

LIKE ANGELS, DON'T HAVE SEX.

THEY DON'T REPRODUCE.

THAT IS WHAT SEX IS ABOUT.

MALE AND FEMALE TO HAVE BABIES.

JESUS SAID THEY WILL BE LIKE THE

ANGELS.

THERE IS NOT MALE OR FEMALE.

OF COURSE THEY ARE ALL EQUAL.

KRISTI: THELMA, WHAT IS THE

BEST WAY TO PRAY?

I TRY TO PRAY EVERYDAY BEFORE I

START MY DAY.

PAT: WHAT IS IT IS FOR YOU,

STANDING SITTING, RAISING HANDS,

GOOD FOR YOU.

WHATEVER IT IS, IT IS THE TOUCH

OF YOUR SPIRIT WITH THE SPIRIT

OF GOD.

THAT IS WHAT PRAYER IS ABOUT.

DEEP CALLS UNTO DEEP.

YOUR SPIRIT IS COMMUTING WITH

GOD.

THE PHYSICAL POSTURE OF YOUR

BODY ISN'T WHAT IS IMPORTANT.

IT IS THE ATTITUDE OF YOUR

HEART.

YOU COULD BE ON YOUR KNEES AND

WISHING THAT YOUR SISTER-IN-LAW

WAS DEAD AND YOU ARE NOT EXACTLY

COMMUTING WITH GOD.

IT IS NOT YOUR PHYSICAL POSTURE

AS THE ATTITUDE OF YOUR HEART.

THAT IS WHAT GOD IS LOOKING FOR.

KRISTI: THAT IS IT.

PAT: THAT IS IT?

OH CHRISTY.

KRISTI: IF YOU WANT TO ASK A

QUESTION LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

I THINK THERE IS A BRING IT ON

QUESTION SPACE THERE SOME WHERE.

PAT: YES, IN DEED.
