Gordon: HE TRAVELS THE

WORLD IN PACKED OUT

STADIUMS.

BECAUSE I HAVE NO ARMS

AND NO LEGS, HE IS USING ME

ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

Gordon: AND HE LET'S

NOTHING HOLD HIM BACK.

WE HAVE SEEN SO FAR

APPROXIMATELY -- AND THIS IS

CONSERVATIVE -- 2,000 SOULS

COME TO JESUS CHRIST FOR THE

FIRST TIME.

Gordon: MEET THE

UNSTOPPABLE NICK BOYACHUCK

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

ON "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE,"

WE USE TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY

FOR EACH OTHER AND EXPLORE

TOPICS THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM.

THERE MAY BE A FEW TIMES IN

LIFE WHEN THINGS GO

ACCORDING TO PLAN.

BUT IT OFTEN TURNS OUT THAT

OUR PLAN "B"s ARE THE BEST

THING THAT COULD HAVE

HAPPENED.

TODAY I WANT TO INTRODUCE

YOU TO NICK, WITH NO ARMS OR

LEGS, HE HAD EVERY REASON TO

GIVE UP.

BUT KNICKING KNOW NICK

KNOWS THAT THE KEY TO HIS

HAPPY IS NOT FOUND IN HIS

CIRCUMSTANCES.

AND THIS DISCOVERY HAS MADE

HIM UNSTOPPABLE.

Kristi: WHAT MAKES

SOMEONE EXTRAORDINARY?

THEIR ABILITIES?

[APPLAUSE]

Kristi: THEIR TALENT?

OR SIMPLY THEIR SMILE.

WHEN I FIRST MET NICK, I

KNEW I HAD JUST ENCOUNTERED

SOMEONE EXTRAORDINARY.

FROM THE MOMENT HE BEGAN TO

SHARE HIS AMAZING STORY WITH

ME, I WITNESSED FIRSTHAND

HOW GOD IS USING A MAN WITH

NO ARMS AND NO LEGS TO BE

GOD'S HANDS AND HIS FEET.

MY DAD WAS SAYING HIS

HEAD WAS NEXT TO MY MOM'S

HEAD AS I WAS BEING BORN,

AND HE SAW MY SHOULDER, AND

HE JUST WENT PALE.

HE WAS HOPING MY MOM DIDN'T

SEE ME BECAUSE HE SAW I HAD

NO RIGHT ARM.

AND MY DAD HAD TO LEAVE THE

ROOM.

AND HE COULDN'T BELIEVE WHAT

HE SAW.

AND THE DOCTOR CAME IN, AND

MY DAD SAID MY SON HAS NO

RIGHT ARM.

AND THE DOCTOR SAID, NO,

YOUR SON MAS NO ARMS OR NO

LEGS, AND MY DAD NEARLY FELL

ON THE FLOOR.

AND THE WHOLE CHURCH WAS

MOURNING, AND THINKING WHY

WOULD GOD LET SOMEONE BE

BORN THAT WAY.

AND MY MOM DIDN'T WANT TO

BREASTFEED ME OR ANYTHING.

AND IT TOOK THEM QUITE A

WHILE FOR THEM TO TRUST TO

GOD DIDN'T MAKE A MISTAKE

FOR THEM OR FOR ME.

Kristi: THEY CHOSE TO

TRUST GOD AND HIS PROMISE

THAT HE HAD A PLAN AND

PURPOSE, A HOPE AND A FUTURE

FOR THEIR SON.

BUT AS THE YEARS PASSED,

NICK, ON THE OTHER HAND, HAD

MANY CHALLENGES TRUSTING IN

A GOD THAT HE FELT GAVE HIM

LESS.

I CHALLENGED GOD.

I SAID, GOD, I KNOW THAT I'M

A SINNER.

THAT I KNOW THAT I WON'T

PROBABLY HAVE PEACE UNTIL

YOU'RE IN MY HEART, BUT I

WILL NOT LET YOU IN MY HEART

UNTIL YOU ANSWER ME WHY?

WHY DID YOU TAKE MY ARMS AND

LEGS?

WHY DIDN'T YOU GIVE ME WHAT

EVERYBODY ELSE HAS?

AND I SAID, GOD, UNTIL YOU

ANSWER ME THAT QUESTION, I

WILL NOT SERVE YOU.

SO I WANTED TO END IT.

IF GOD WASN'T GOING TO END

MY PAIN, I WAS GOING TO END

IT MYSELF.

SO AT AGE EIGHT, I TRIED TO

DROWN MYSELF IN A BATHTUB

WITH ABOUT FOUR INCHES OF

WATER.

I TOLD MY MOM AND DAD I'M

JUST GOING TO RELAX IN THE

BATHTUB.

YEAH, I TURNED OVER A COUPLE

OF TIMES IF I COUL COULD --

TIMES TO SEE IF I COULD DO

IT.

I COULDN'T DO IT.

WHAT STOPPED ME WAS MY LOVE

FOR MY PARENTS.

BECAUSE I LOVE THEM SO MUCH,

AND ALL THEY DID WAS LOVE

ME.

I THOUGHT IF I ACTUALLY WENT

THROUGH WITH THIS, I

PICTURED MY FUNERAL.

I PICTURED MY PARENTS.

AND ALL I SAW WAS GUILT ON

THEIR SHOULDERS, THAT THEY

COULDN'T HAVE DONE MORE.

Kristi: THAT WOULD BE

THE LAST TIME NICK WOULD

ATTEMPT SUICIDE, BUT IT

WOULDN'T BE THE LAST TIME HE

WOULD COME FACE TO FACE WITH

THOSE DEEP ISSUES THAT MADE

HIM WANT TO END THE PAIN.

THEN ONE DAY NICK'S MOTHER

HAD HIM READ AN ARTICLE

ABOUT A SEVERELY DISABLED

MAN, AND THAT MAN'S STORY

MADE A HUGE IMPACT O ON

NICK.

I HAVE A CHOICE TO BE

ANGRY AT GOD FOR WHAT I

DON'T HAVE OR BE THANKFUL

FOR WHAT I DO HAVE.

AND MY MOM SAID, NICK, GOD

IS GOING TO USE YOU.

I DON'T NOW HOW OR WHEN, BUT

GOD IS GOING TO USE YOU.

AND THAT'S WHEN THOSE SEEDS

STARTED TO PENETRATE IN MY

HEART.

AND THAT'S WHEN I FOUND OUT

THERE IS NO POINT SUCCEEDING

ON THE OUTSIDE IF YOU'RE

BROKEN ON THE INSIDE.

I GAVE MY LIFE TO JESUS

CHRIST WHEN I READ JOHN 9 AT

AGE 15.

WHERE A MAN WAS COMING

THROUGH A VILLAGE, AND THE

MAN -- THIS BLIND MAN FROM

BIRTH, JESUS SAW HIM.

AND PEOPLE SAID WHY WAS THIS

MAN BORN THAT WAY.

JESUS SAID IT WAS DONE SO

THAT THE WORKS OF GOD MAY BE

REVEALED THROUGH HIM.

IN TIMOTHY 3: 16, HE SAYS

ALL SCRIPTURE IS

GOD-BREATHED.

I BELIEVE GOD BREATHED IN MY

LIFE.

AND THIS PEACE CAME OVER

ME.

AND I FELT LIKE GOD ANSWERED

MY QUESTION.

Kristi: WHAT WAS THE

QUESTION, AND WHAT WAS THE

ANSWER?

THE QUESTION WAS WHY?

WHY DID YOU MAKE ME THIS

WAY?

AND THE ANSWER WAS: DO YOU

TRUST ME?

WHEN YOU SAY YES TO THAT

QUESTION, NOTHING ELSE

MATTERS.

Kristi: BUT WHAT WAS

IT, SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU,

THAT MADE YOU SAY, LORD, I'M

GOING TO TRUST YOUR WORD

BECAUSE I KNOW IT'S TRUE.

I'M GOING TO TRUST YOU EVEN

IF I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU

HAVE IN STORE FOR ME

TOMORROW?

BECAUSE THERE WAS NOTHING

ELSE I COULD FIND.

THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE THAT

COULD GIVE ME PEACE.

I KNEW ARMS AND LEGS

WOULDN'T GIVE ME PEACE

ANYWAY, ARMS AND LEGS

ALONE.

I NEEDED TO KNOW THE TRUTH

OF WHO I AM, WHY I'M HERE,

AND WHERE I'M GOING WHEN I'M

NOT HERE.

AND I HAVEN'T FOUND THAT

TRUTH ANYWHERE ELSE BUT IN

JESUS CHRIST.

Kristi: AND IT WAS IN

JESUS CHRIST WHERE NICK

FOUND THE STRENGTH TO DO

WHAT MANY THOUGHT WOULD BE

THE IMPOSSIBLE.

IT IS SO HARD TO BE

STRONG WHEN PEOPLE

CONSTANTLY SAY YOU'RE NOT

GOOD ENOUGH.

GO AWAY.

WE DON'T WANT ANYTHING TO DO

WITH YOU.

NICK, YOUR A NOBODY.

NICK, YOU CAN'T DO THAT.

NICK, NICK, NICK.

IN LIFE, IF YOU DON'T KNOW

THE TRUTH, THEN YOU CAN'T BE

FREE BECAUSE THEN YOU'LL

BELIEVE THAT THE LIES ARE

THE TRUTH.

ONCE WE REALIZE THAT WHEN WE

READ THE WORD OF GOD, AND

YOU KNOW THE TRUTH OF WHO

YOU ARE -- I AM NOT A MAN

WITHOUT ARMS AND LEGS.

I AM A CHILD OF GOD.

I AM FORGIVEN OF MY SINS.

I'M AN AMBASSADOR TO THE

KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF

LORDS.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT NICK.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT NICK'S

CAPACITY AND CAPABILITY TO

BECOME THIS CONQUEROR.

I'M NOTHING -- I'M NOTHING.

GOD, THOUGH, LIVES IN ME.

AND I NOW LIVE IN HIS

STRENGTH.

WHATEVER JESUS CONQUERED, I

CONQUERED.

I BELIEVE GOD DOESN'T GIVE

YOU A MIRACLE.

YOU ARE A MIRACLE OF GOD FOR

SOMEBODY ELSE'S SALVATION.

I THANK GOD HE DIDN'T ANSWER

MY PRAYER WHEN I WAS BEGGING

HIM FOR ARMS AND LEGS AT AGE

EIGHT.

BECAUSE, GUESS WHAT?

BECAUSE I HAVE NO ARMS AND

NO LEGS, HE IS USING ME

AROUND THE WORLD.

AND WE'VE SEEN SO FAR

APPROXIMATELY -- AND THIS IS

CONSERVATIVE -- 200,000

SOULS COME TO JESUS CHRIST

FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME IN

THE LAST SIX OR SEVEN

YEARS.

AND WHAT WOULD YOU RATHER?

WOULD YOU RATHER HAVE ARMS

AND LEGS MAKE YOU ON

EARTH -- NO.

WHATEVER HIS WILL IS.

BECAUSE I WOULD RATHER HAVE

NO ARMS AND NO LEGS

TEMPORARILY HERE ON EARTH TO

BE ABLE TO REACH SOMEONE FOR

JESUS CHRIST AND THEN SPEND

ETERNITY WITH THEM THERE.

Kristi: IN THE LAST

DECADE, NICK HAS SHARED THIS

STORY IN 24 COUNTRIES TO

OVER THREE MILLION PEOPLE.

AND WHETHER HE IS TALKING TO

A STADIUM PACKED WITH PEOPLE

OR ONE SINGLE PERSON, HIS

HEART BEHIND THE MESSAGE IS

THE SAME.

GOD LOVES YOU.

AND HE HASN'T FORGOTTEN YOUR

PAIN.

HE HASN'T FORGOTTEN YOUR

FAMILY.

AND MAYBE WHILE YOU'RE

WATCHING THIS INTERVIEW

YOU'VE COMPARED YOUR

SUFFERING TO MY SUFFERING.

THAT'S NOT WHERE HOPE IS TO

KNOW THAT SOMEONE ELSE, IN

YOUR OPINION, IS SUFFERING

MORE THAN YOU.

THAT'S NOT WHERE HOPE IS.

BUT HOPE IS IN THE NAME OF

GOD, THE NAME OF THE LORD

JESUS CHRIST.

HOPE IS WHEN YOU COMPARE

YOUR SUFFERING TO THE

INFINITE, IMMEASURABLE LOVE

AND GRACE OF GOD.

ISAIAH 40: 31: "THOSE WHO

WAIT UPON THE LORD WILL

RENEW THEIR STRENGTH, THEY

SHALL MOUNT UP ON WINGS AT

EAGLES."

I DON'T NEED MY

CIRCUMSTANCES TO CHANGE.

I DON'T NEED ARMS AND LEGS.

I NEED THE WINGS OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT, AND I'M FLYING

BECAUSE I KNOW JESUS IS

HOLDING ME UP.

DON'T GIVE UP ON GOD BECAUSE

GOD WILL NOT GIVE UP ON

YOU.

Gordon: YOU JUST HEARD

NICK QUOTE ISAIAH 40: 31:

"BUT THOSE WHO WAIT ON THE

LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR

STRENGTH.

THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH

WINGS LIKE EAGLES.

THEY SHALL RUN AND NOT BE

WEARY, AND THEY SHALL WALK

AND NOT FAINT."

IF YOU, LIKE NICK, HAVE A

LIFE VERSE, WE WANT TO HEAR

FROM YOU AND TELL US YOUR

STORY.

TELL US WHAT YOU WENT

THROUGH AND WHAT SCRIPTURE

YOU HELD ON TO, AND HOW IT

PROVIDED THE BREAKTHROUGH

FOR YOU.

STILL AHEAD, WE'RE GOING TO

MEET NICK.

HE IS GOING TO BE WITH US

LIVE VIA SKYPE, AND BELIEVE

THIS -- THIS IS PRETTY

INCREDIBLE.

HE GOT MARRIED AND HAS NOW

FATHERED A SON.

AND HE WENT ON OPRAH, AN

APPEARANCE THAT WENT VIRAL

AROUND THE WORLD.

THAT IS ALL NEXT ON "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

Gordon: BEFORE THE

BREAK, WE HEARD THE STORY OF

NICK, A YOUNG MAN BORN

WITHOUT ARMS AND LEGS, WHO

HAS OVERCOME OBSTACLES THAT

WOULD -- I'M NOT SURE I

COULD MATCH HIM.

WELL, SINCE WE DID THAT

STORY, NICK HAS NOW MARRIED

AND BECOME A FATHER AND

APPEARED ON OPRAH IN A CLIP

SEEN OVER TWO MILLION TIMES

ON YouTube.

TO TELL US MORE, NICK IS

JOINING US NOW.

NICK, WELCOME TO "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

HI, GORDON.

HOW ARE YOU?

Gordon: I'M DOING

WELL.

YOU GOT MARRIED IN 2012.

EVERYBODY LOVES A LOVE

STORY.

HOW DO YOU MEET YOUR WIFE?

WE MET -- EXCUSE ME --

IT'S LIKE 5 A.M. IN

CALIFORNIA -- NO IT'S NOT,

I'M JOKING.

WE MET A SMALL SPEAKING

ENGAGEMENT IN DALLAS,

TEXAS.

WE LOOKED AT EACH OTHER AND

WE BOTH SAW SOME FIREWORKS

GOING ON.

AND WE HAD A MUTUAL

FRIEND --

Gordon: WELL, THEY SAY,

NICK, THAT LOVE IS BLIND AND

MARRIAGE IS AN EYE

EYE-OPENER.

WHAT HAS MARRIAGE TAUGHT

YOU?

I'M JUST IN AWE EVERY DAY

THAT I GOT SOMEONE SO

AWESOME FROM THE INSIDE

OUT.

SHE IS ABSOLUTELY THE MOST

BEAUTIFUL AND AWESOME WOMAN

OF GOD I'VE EVER MET IN MY

LIFE.

EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY MORE

THAN I COULD ASK OR ATTAIN.

Gordon: EARLIER THIS

YEAR YOU BECAME A FATHER.

WOULD YOU HAVE ANY FEARS

YOUR SON WOULD HAVE A

PHYSICAL HANDICAP?

YOU KNOW, KNOWING THAT MY

DISABILITY WAS NOT GENETIC,

WE KNEW THAT THE CHANCES OF

HIM HAVING NO ARMS AND NO

LEGS WAS VERY, VERY, VERY

SMALL.

BUT WE WERE DEFINITELY

CURIOUS.

AND WE SAW THE FIRST

ULTRASOUND, AND I THINK IT

WAS WEEK NINE OR 10 OR 11,

BUT HE HAD HIS HAND UP IN

THE AIR, AND YOU COULD COUNT

ALL OF THE FIVE FINGERS

AND -- FOUR FINGERS AND ONE

THUMB.

IT WAS REALLY AWESOME, MAN.

Gordon: WHAT WAS IT

LIKE, THE FIRST TIME YOU

HELD YOUR SON?

I MEAN, EVEN THE FIRST

TIME I FELT HIM KICK IN MY

WIFE'S WOMB, I CAN'T

DESCRIBE IT.

EVEN WHEN HE WAS BORN,

BEFORE HE TOOK A BREATH OF

OXYGEN IN AND CRIED, FOR A

COUPLE OF SECONDS, HE WAS

LOOKING AT ME WHILE HE WAS

LAYING ON THE DOCTOR'S ARM,

WHILE SHE WAS PULLING OUT

SOME OF UMBILICAL CORD, AND

I CRIED.

IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE, MAN.

HOLDING HIM WAS A DREAM COME

TRUE.

AND WE PUT THAT PHOTO YOU

JUST SHOWED UP ON

Facebook, AND IT GOT EIGHT

MILLION HITS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE PRAYING

FOR ME THAT I WOULD GET

MARRIED AND HAVE A KID WITH

MY WIFE AND LOVE LIFE AS GOD

ORDAINED.

Gordon: WHEN YOU WERE

GROWING UP, DID YOU EVER

THINK THIS WOULD HAPPEN?

NO, NOT AS A KID.

NO WAY.

I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD GET

MARRIED.

AND THAT, ACTUALLY, I WAS A

BIG BURDEN.

THE BIGGEST BURDEN OF ALL

WAS FEELING LIKE I WAS GOING

TO BE ALONE FOR THE REST OF

MY LIFE AND NEVER HAVE A

PURPOSE TO LIVE FOR, AND

BULLYING FROM SCHOOL WAS

SUCH A BIG BURDEN THAT THAT

REALLY GOT ME DOWN.

I NEVER THOUGHT THAT THIS

WOULD HAPPEN.

AND EVEN AS A TEENAGER, I

HAD MY DOUBTS, OF COURSE.

Gordon: IT JUST SEEMS

TO BE SUCH A MIRACLE.

YOUR OVERALL TRANSFORMATION

AND JUST, I DON'T KNOW, THE

QUALITY OF YOUR SPIRIT.

I'M JUST SO IMPRESSED THAT

YOU HAVE THIS.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO

SOMEBODY THAT IS SUFFERING

FROM DEPRESSION OR JUST

DOESN'T SEE ANY HOPE IN

LIFE?

HOW WOULD YOU ENCOURAGE

THEM?

FOR ANYONE WHO SEES

ANYTHING GOD IN ME, IT IS

ALL BECAUSE OF GOD.

IT IS NOT THAT NICK WAS

SPECIAL OR THAT HE HAD MORE

STRENGTH OR DETERMINATION,

OR EVEN BETTER PARENTS.

NOT NECESSARILY ALWAYS THE

CASE.

BUT WHAT IS THE CASE IS

WHATEVER YOU HAVE, WHEN YOU

DEDICATE THAT TO THE LORD,

THAT'S WHEN HE CAN DO

MIRACLES WITH YOUR BROKEN

PIECES.

YOU KNOW, I WANT PEOPLE TO

BE CHALLENGED TO NEVER GIVE

UP, AND NOT PUT LIMITS ON

WHAT GOD CAN REALLY DO IN

YOUR LIFE.

IF YOU DON'T GIVE UP ON GOD,

GOD WILL NOT GIVE UP ON

YOU.

EVEN IF I HAD TO LET SOME

DREAMS GO ALONG THE WAY, I

KNOW GOD IS NEVER GOING TO

LET ME GO.

WHATEVER HE SAYS NO TO, HE

DEFINITELY MEANS YES TO

SOMETHING ELSE, THAT IS

MUCH, MUCH BETTER THAN WE

COULD EVER IMAGINE.

KNOWING THAT HEAVEN IS REAL,

THAT IS A WONDERFUL HOPE.

KNOWING THAT GOD IS WITH US,

THAT'S THE GREATEST HOPE.

SO NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, OR

WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH,

KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVED BY

GOD.

HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT.

TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME, AND

ASK HIM FOR THAT FAITH, AND

HE WILL GIVE IT TO YOU ONE

DAY AT A TIME.

Gordon: I KNOW IN MY

OWN LIFE, I SOMETIMES

WONDERED WHY DID GOD HAVE TO

BREAK ME IN ORDER TO USE

ME.

AND IT SEEMS LIKE YOU

STARTED OUT THAT WAY.

DID YOU EVER -- I KNOW IN

YOUR STORY YOU REALLY WENT

THROUGH A WHOLE PERIOD OF

SAYING, GOD, I NEED TO KNOW

WHY BEFORE I GOING TO

SURRENDER TO YOU.

HAVE YOU EVER REALLY GOTTEN

A SATISFACTORY ANSWER TO

THAT?

OR ARE YOU JUST SAYING I

JUST NEED TO JUST TRUST

HIM.

I JUST NEED TO RELY ON HIM,

THAT HE HAS A BETTER PLAN

FOR ME.

16 YEARS AGO, I GAVE MY

LIFE TO JESUS AFTER I READ

JOHN 9, AFTER I READ ABOUT A

MAMAN WHO WAS BLIND.

AND JESUS SAID HE WAS BLIND

SO THAT THE WORKS OF GOD

COULD BE DONE.

KNOWING HE IS BLIND, AND HE

CAN'T SEE WHAT IS GOING ON,

AND THIS JESUS PERSON -- IT

MUST HAVE BEEN HIS KIND

VOICE, IT MUST HAVE BEEN THE

LOVE OF HIS COMMUNICATING,

AND IT WAS HIS PRESENCE, OF

COURSE, HE IS GOD.

THE BLIND MAN WASN'T GOING,

WHOA, WHOA, WHOA WATT WATTS

WHAT'S GOING ON AS JESUS

SPAT IN THE CLAY AND

ANOINTED THAT MAN'S EYES

WITH THAT DIRT.

IT WASN'T GIVE ME THE "X"

"Y" "Z" OF WHAT YOU WANT TO

DO WITH MY LIFE, AND THEN

LET ME SEE IF I TRUST YOU.

THE BLIND MAN WAS JUST THERE

AND HE ALLOWED JESUS TO

PERFECT HIS PERFECT HIS

WILL.

AND I THAT'S WHEN I REALIZED,

I DON'T NEED TO KNOW.

I JUST NEED TO HAVE FAITH.

WHEN YOU HAVE FAITH IN GOD

ALMIGHTY, WHO CAN DO ALL

THINGS, THAT'S WHEN YOU CAN

OVERCOME ALL ADVERSITY,

BECAUSE NO WEAPON FORMED

AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER.

BECAUSE THERE IS NO

CIRCUMSTANCE OR NO PAIN THAT

GOD CANNOT USE TO BRING

SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL, NOT

JUST FOR THE GOOD, BUT

SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL.

IT IS A MIRACLE THAT NO ONE

CAN ARGUE WITH, THAT A MAN

WITH NO ARMS AND FEET TO BE

THE HANDS AND FEET OF GOD.

IF GOD CAN USE ME, GOD CAN

USE ANYONE.

THAT'S PART OF THE MESSAGE

AS WELL.

Gordon: NICK, WHAT IS

NEXT FOR YOU ON THE

JOURNEY?

YOU KNOW, GORDON, WE ARE

REALLY, REALLY EXCITED.

PLEASE GO TO LIFE WITHOUT

LIMBS.

BEFORE MY WIFE AND I FOUND

OUT WE WERE PREGNANT, WE

ORGANIZED STADIUMS IN 26

COUNTRIES, IN ASIAN AND ALL

OF SOUTH AMERICA.

TOTAL POPULATION OF

800 MILLION.

WE ARE USING OUR

FOUR-PRONGED INTERNATIONAL

MODEL, WHICH MEANS A

STADIUM, PRESS CONFERENCE,

GOVERNMENTAL MEETING AND A

HUMANITARIAN MEETING WITHIN

TWO DAYS OF GOING INTO THAT

COUNTRY, AND EFFECTIVELY

REACHING 80% OF THAT

POPULATION OVERNIGHT.

IF YOU CAN'T PICTURE THAT,

GO TO OUR WEBSITE, AND

YOU'LL SEE AN 18-MINUTE

VIDEO OF HOW THAT HAPPENED

IN THREE COUNTRIES.

THAT JUST HAPPENED IN

EASTERN EUROPE.

SO PLEASE PRAY FOR US.

WE ARE EXCITED.

IT IS GOING TO BE REALLY

HARD BECAUSE THE FIRST PART

OF THE JOURNEY, I'M NOT

GOING TO BE WITH MY WIFE AND

MY BOY.

AND WE PRAYED ABOUT IT, AND

WE REALLY FELT THAT MILLIONS

OF PEOPLE NEED TO HEAR THE

GOSPEL, AND WE'LL BE SEEING

EACH OTHER SOON AFTER THAT,

AND THEY'LL BE TRAVELLING

WITH ME AFTER THAT.

SO WE'RE REALLY EXCITED.

AND ALSO VERY, VERY

PASSIONATE ABOUT REACHING

OUT TO THE UNITED STATES OF

AMERICA LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

WE WERE JUST WITH GOVERNOR

GARY HERBERT OF UTAH, AND WE

DID A STATE-WIDE

ANTIBULLYING MESSAGE EVENT,

AND WE'RE GOING TO BOISE

THIS THURSDAY NIGHT TO SPEAK

WITH 7,000 PEOPLE.

GO TO OUR FAN PAGE AND PRAY

FOR US, AND SUPPORT US.

WE NEED YOUR PRAYERS AND

SUPPORT.

Gordon: NICK, YOU'VE

GOT ALL OF MY PRAYERS.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

IF YOU WANT MORE INFORMATION

ON NICK'S MINISTRY, "LIFE

WITHOUT LIMBS," WE'VE GOT A

CONNECTION ON OUR WEBSITE.

COMING UP, FROM ANCIENT

ARCHITECTURE, TO HISTORICAL

KINGS, FIND OUT HOW

"SUPERBOOK" IS BRINGING THE

BIBLE TO CHILDREN.

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: IN THE MOVIE

"BEN HURR," THE ROMANS FIGHT

A FLEET OF PIRATES THAT WERE

CONQUERED A HUNDRED YEARS

BEFORE THE FILM TOOK PLACE.

IN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS,

MOSES STARTS WALKING OUT OF

EGYPT GOING IN THE WRONG

DIRECTION.

THESE ARE JUST EXAMPLES OF

HOW HOLLYWOOD IS NOT DOING

THEIR HOMEWORK.

AS YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE, YOU

DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT

THOSE BLUNDERS WHEN WATCHING

THE NEW "SUPERBOOK."

I AM TAKING YOU TO MEET A

MAN WHO STOOD UP FOR WHAT HE

BELIEVED WAS RIGHT.

WHEN YOU'RE WATCHING

"SUPERBOOK," YOU'RE NOT JUST

WATCHING ANIMATED BIBLE

STORIES.

YOU'RE ALSO WATCHING ONE OF

THE MOST ACCURATE PORTRAYALS

OF THE ANCIENT MIDDLE EAST

EVER PUT INTO A CARTOON.

IT APPEARS WE'RE IN

ANCIENT BABYLON,

APPROXIMATELY 500 B.C.

EVERY DETAIL HAS BEEN

CHECKED FOR HISTORICAL

ACCURACY.

IF IT DIDN'T HAVE IT BACK

THEN, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

HAVE IT IN "SUPERBOOK."

WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE SO

IMPORTANT?

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SHOT.

IT IS ONLY UP THERE FOR A

FEW SECONDS, SO IF YOU

BLINK, YOU MIGHT MISS IT.

THAT MASSIVE BLUE STRUCTURE

WAS CALLED THE ISHTAR GATE.

IT WAS FAITHFULLY

RECONSTRUCTED BY OUR

"SUPERBOOK" ANIMATORS 2500

YEARS LATER.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THAT GATE

IS STILL AROUND.

ONLY IT IS NOT IN BABYLON

ANYMORE.

IT IS NOW STANDING IN A

MUSEUM IN GERMANY.

OUR PRODUCERS SAW THE GATE

AND MADE SURE THAT WHEN WE

DREW IT, WE HAD THE RIGHT

COLORS, THE RIGHT SIZE, AND

ALL OF THOSE LIONS ON THE

WALL FACING IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION.

Gordon: AND THE REASON

IS WE WANT TO LET CHILDREN

KNOW THAT THE THIS IS A

REAL PLACE AND A REALTIME,

AND THIS IS AN HISTORICAL

EVENT THAT HAPPENED.

AND IT IS NOT JUST THE

BACKGROUND.

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF

THIS OUTRAGE?

TAKE THIS HANDSOME

FELLOW.

THIS NAME IS DARIUS THE

GREAT.

HE WAS A REIGNING MONARCH OF

THE PERSIAN EMPIRE BETWEEN

522 AND 486 B.C.

HE IS ALSO THOUGHT TO BE THE

DARIUS REFERRED TO IN THE

BOOK OF DANIEL.

YOU ARE WISE ABOVE ALL

MEN IN MY KINGDOM.

WELL, WE DIDN'T JUST DRAW

HIM TO SUPPORT THE ZZ TOP

BEARD BECAUSE IT WAS COOL.

THAT'S ACTUALLY THE WAY HE

LOOKS.

EVEN A KING CAN BE

UNCERTAIN ABOUT WHAT IS

RIGHT.

Gordon: THE MORE

HISTORICALLY ACCURATE WE CAN

MAKE THEM, THE LONGER THE

SERIES WILL LAST.

BUT IT IS NOT JUST THE

LOOK THAT IS IMPORTANT.

THE FOUNDATION OF ANY

"SUPERBOOK" EPISODE IS THE

BIBLE STORY, WHETHER IT IS

DANIEL AND THE LIONS' DEN OR

MOSES AND CREATION.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THE

STORY BEING TOLD BY US

MATCHES UP TO THE STORY

BEING TOLD IN THE BIBLE,

EVEN DOWN TO THE DIALOGUE,

WHICH COMES DIRECTLY FROM

THE SCRIPTURES.

LONG LIVE THE KING.

MY GOD SENT HIS ANGELS TO

SHUT THE LIONS' SO THEY

WOULD NOT HURT ME FOR I HAVE

BEEN FOUND INCIDENT IN HIS

SIGHT.

ULTIMATELY, THE GOAL OF

"SUPERBOOK" IS TO TEACH KIDS

AROUND THE WORLD ABOUT THE

BIBLE.

THAT'S WHY THIS WILL BE

TRANSLATED INTO 18

LANGUAGES.

WE HOPE IN THE NEXT THREE

YEARS, 300 MILLION CHILDREN

WILL HEAR THE BIBLE STORIES,

FROM GENESIS TO REVOLUTION,

AND MANY OF THOSE KIDS WILL

BE HEARING ABOUT THE BIBLE

FOR THE FIRST AND ONLY TIME

THROUGH THIS PROGRAM.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE SUCH A

STICKLER FOR ACCURACY.

WE JUST ADDED THE TALKING

ROBOT.

Consuelo: I ROBOT.

Gordon: IF YOU WANT TO

BE A PART OF "SUPERBOOK,"

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO HELP US,

AND HELP US WITH THE

PRODUCTION COSTS.

THE EPISODES ARE EXPENSIVE

TO PRODUCE, AND EXPENSIVE TO

TRANSLATE AND EXPENSIVE TO

DISTRIBUTE.

BUT OUR GOAL OVER THE NEXT

FIVE YEARS IS FOR

300 MILLION CHILDREN TO

WATCH THE SERIES AROUND THE

WORLD.

WE'RE GOING TO BE

BROADCASTING THROUGHOUT

AFRICA, THROUGHOUT

LATIN-AMERICAN AND

THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST,

AND INDIA AND THE

PHILIPPINES, AND RIGHT HERE

IN THE UNITED STATES.

AND IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART

OF IT, WE'RE ASKING YOU TO

HELP US.

HOW MUCH?

$25.

THAT WILL GO TO THE

PRODUCTION, TRANSLATION, AND

DISTRIBUTION COST.

WHEN YOU JOIN THAT

"SUPERBOOK" D.V.D., FOR

EVERY TIME A NEW EPISODE

COMES OUT, WE'LL SEND YOU

NOT JUST ONE COPY, BUT WE'LL

SEND YOU THREE COPIES SO YOU

CAN SHARE WITH FAMILY.

YOU CAN SHARE WITH FRIENDS.

YOU CAN SHARE WITH YOUR

CHURCH.

SO THAT THE PEOPLE AROUND

YOU CAN BE EXPOSED TO THE

STORIES OF THE BIBLE.

NOT JUST YOU, YOUR CHILDREN

AND YOUR GRANDCHILDREN, BUT

WE CAN GET THE MESSAGE OUT

TOGETHER AND YOU CAN BE A

PART OF IT.

SO FOR $25, EVERY TIME A NEW

EPISODE COMES OUT, WE'LL

BILL YOUR CREDIT CARD.

ANOTHER $25, AND SHIP THEM

RIGHT TO YOU, SO YOU'LL BE

FIRST IN LINE TO GET THE NEW

EPISODES.

WE FINISHED SEASON ONE, SO

IF YOU WANT TO GET CAUGHT UP

ON THE SERIES, ALL YOU HAVE

TO DO IS GO TO cbn.com,

AND YOU CAN CLICK ON THE

"SUPERBOOK" LINK THERE, AND

YOU'LL FIND THE PREVIOUS

EPISODES IF YOU WANT TO GET

CAUGHT UP.

GOING FORWARD INTO SEASON

TWO, WE'RE GOING TO LAUNCH

THAT WITH THE STORY OF

JONAH.

CALL US, 1-888-777-1999.

THIS IS "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE," AND WE'RE

GOING TO INTERACT WITH YOU.

LET'S GO TO JOSEPH IN THE

CHATROOM.

WE HAVE BRENDA, AND SHE

SAYS "I'VE BEEN PRAYING TO

GET MARRIED SINCE I WAS A

TEENAGER.

I PRAY AND SEEK GOD AND READ

HIS WORD, AND I TRY TO DATE

ON LINE AND MEET NEW PEOPLE,

BUT I'M STILL ALONE.

HOW DO I KNOW THAT GOD HAS

HEARD MY PRAYER?"

Gordon: YOU KNOW, THE

BIBLE SAYS HE HAS HEARD OUR

PRAYER WHEN WE PRAY IN

ACCORDANCE WITH HIS WILL.

YOU FIND THAT IN THE LETTERS

OF JOHN.

YOU'RE PRAYING IN ACCORDANCE

WITH HIS WILL BECAUSE

MARRIAGE WAS INSTITUTED BY

GOD.

SO YOU KNOW HE HAS HEARD.

NOW THE ISSUE IS THE GUY

READY FOR YOU?

SO I WOULD SAY KEEP TRYING.

KEEP SEEKING.

KEEP KNOCKING.

DON'T GIVE UP AND SEE WHAT

GOD WILL DO FOR YOU.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM GALATIANS: "AND

LET US NOT GROW WEARY WHILE

DOING GOOD, FOR IN DUE

SEASON, WE SHALL REAP IF WE

DO NOT LOSE
