Movie producer Carol Mathews talks about her new movie 'Home Run.' Plus, Russ's journey home to Iran lands him in prison when he can't stop sharing Christ with Muslims. Read Transcript


Lee: YOU BURN COAL, YOU

GET FLY ASH.

THERE IS NO HARM TO HUMAN

HEALTH.

AS A RESULT OF THE ELEMENTS

THAT ARE IN COAL ASH.

Lee: BUT DON'T TELL

THAT TO THIS WOMAN.

IT ATE THE ROOF OFF OF MY

HOUSE, SO WHAT IS IT DOING

TO THE INSIDES OF MY BODY.

Lee: NOW YOU SEE IT --

IT WAS A 45-POUND TUMOR.

Lee: -- NOW YOU DON'T,

AND TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELCOME TO THE

SHOW, AND THANKS FOR BEING

WITH US.

IT IS THE MOST SENSATIONAL

MURDER TRIAL YOU MAY KNOW

NOTHING ABOUT BECAUSE IT IS

GETTING NO MEDIA COVERAGE.

Terry: THE CRIMES TOOK

PLACE IN AN ABORTION CLINIC

IN PHILADELPHIA, AND ALMOST

ALL OF THE VICTIMS IN THIS

CASE ARE UNBORN BABIES.

GARY LANE HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: DR. KERMIT IS

CHARGED WITH KILLING A WOMAN

PATIENT AND SEVEN BABIES

ALLEGEDLY BORN ALIVE AT HIS

ABORTION CLINIC IN INNER

CITY, PHILADELPHIA.

HE COULD FACE THE DEATH

PENALTY.

EIGHT FORMER EMPLOYEES

ALREADY PLEADED GUILTY.

SOME TO THIRD DEGREE

MURDER.

THEY TESTIFIED ABOUT THE

BIZARRE PRACTICES AT THE

CLINIC, INCLUDING SOME OF

THE HORRIBLE THINGS SHE

SAW.

ONE SAID SHE SAW ABORTED

BABIES MOVE AT LEAST TEN.

ANOTHER SAID SHE SNIFFED THE

SPINES OF AT LEAST THREE

BABIES.

SHE CRIED AS SHE THOUGHT HE

WAS 30 WEEKS, ABOUT SEVEN

AND A HALF MONTHS ALONG.

THE DOCTOR JOKE LATER THAT

THE BABY WAS SO BIG HE COULD

HAVE WALKED TO THE BUS

STOP.

HIS FORMER LAWYER, BILL

BRENNAN, SAYS THE TRIAL WILL

TAKE SOME TIME.

BETWEEN DEATH PENALTY,

AND LENGTH OF THE SERVICE

AND THE ABORTION ISSUE --

ACTUALLY, WHEN YOU FACTOR

THAT IT GOT INTERNATIONAL

ATTENTION WHEN IT BROKE, IT

IS GOING TO BE A LONG,

DIFFICULT PROCESS.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH THE

ASSOCIATED PRESS HAS

REPORTED ON THE TRIAL, IT

HAS RECEIVED VIRTUALLY NO

NATIONAL MEDIA COVERAGE.

THAT HAS LED SOME

CONSERVATIVES TO CRITICIZE

THE MEDIA.

"LET ME STATE THE OBVIOUS:

THIS SHOULD BE FRONT-PAGE

NEWS.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO OPPOSE

ABORTION RIGHTS TO FIND

LATE-TERM ABORTION

ABHORRENT.

THE DEAFENING SILENCE OF TOO

MUCH OF THE MEDIA, ONCE A

FORCE FOR JUSTICE IN

AMERICA, IS A DISGRACE."

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: IT IS LIKE IF

YOU RUN AN ABORTION CLINIC,

YOU GET A FREE PASS.

THAT'S WHAT'S GOING ON.

AND THE NEWS ALSO THIS WEEK

ABOUT A PLANNED PARENTHOOD

CLINIC THAT WAS UNSANITARY.

THEY WEREN'T SCRUBBING DOWN

THE TABLES.

THEY WEREN'T STERILIZING

INSTRUMENTS.

THERE IS A CALL HERE FOR

INSPECTIONS.

THE PART OF THAT STORY THAT

IS AMAZING IS THAT CLINIC IN

PHILADELPHIA, THEY WOULDN'T

HAVE BEEN CAUGHT IF IT

HADN'T BEEN FOR PRESCRIPTION

VIOLATIONS.

THAT'S WHAT STARTED THE

INVESTIGATION.

AND THEN WHEN THEY OPENED

THE DOORS, THEY FOUND A

HORROR SHOW INSIDE.

AND FOR IT NOT TO BE COVERED

IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

CBN NEWS WILL BE BRINGING

YOU MORE COVERAGE OF THIS

TRIAL FROM PHILADELPHIA.

AND ARMY OFFICER'S PUBLIC

E-MAIL HAS LED TO A QUICK

RESPONSE FROM TWO CHRISTIAN

GROUPS.

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: THE E-MAIL

CALLS THE TWO CHRISTIAN

ORGANIZATIONS, QUOTE,"HATE

GROUPS."

CHARLENE ISRAEL TELLS US

WHAT WAS IN THE E-MAIL.

Reporter: THE E-MAIL

CAME FROM LIEUTENANT JACK

RIDGE.

THE 14 PAGE DOCUMENT WAS

ADDRESSED TO SUBORDINATES.

IT LABELLED TWO FAMILY

ORGANIZATIONS, THE FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL, AND THE

AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION,

AS DOMESTIC HATE GROUPS.

ONE SECTION OF THE E-MAIL

READS, "THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT

IN AMERICA HAS EMPLOYED

STRATEGIES TO BEAT BACK THE

GAY RIGHTS MOVEMENT."

AND IT SAID, "JUST WANT TO

ENSURE EVERYONE IS SOMEWHAT

EDUCATED ON SOME OF THE

GROUPS OUT THERE THAT DO NOT

SHARE OUR ARMY VALUES."

IT IS OUTRAGEOUS THAT

F.R.C. AND THE AMERICA

FAMILY ASSOCIATION WOULD BE

DESIGNATED AS DOMESTIC HATE

GROUPS BY OUR OWN MILITARY,

PARTICULARLY FAMILY RESEARCH

COUNCIL.

Reporter: BRIAN FISHER,

OF THE AMERICAN FAMILY

ASSOCIATION, SAYS THE

PENTAGON'S ASSOCIATION COMES

FROM THE SOUTHERN POVERTY

LAW CENTER, A GROUP THAT

PRODUCED A SO-CALLED HATE

MAP, PRODUCED BY A MAN WHO

PLEADED GUILTY FOR AN ATTACK

ON A SECURITY GUARD AT THE

FAMILY RESOURCES LAST

SUMMER.

THE FIRST THING WE NEED

TO SEE HAPPEN IS FOR THE

PENTAGON TO DISTANCE

THEMSELVES FROM THIS E-MAIL,

AND THEN FROM THE SOUTHERN

POVERTY LAW CENTER.

THIS IS A THOROUGHLY

DISCREDITED SOURCE OF

INFORMATION.

THEY DESIGNATED F.R.C. AND

F.R.A. AS HATE GROUPS,

SIMPLY BECAUSE WE DISAGREE

WITH THEM ON THE SUBJECT OF

HOMOSEXUALITY.

WELL, SPEAKING THE TRUTH IS

NOT HATRED.

IT IS A COMPLETELY

OUTRAGEOUS, UNFUNDED

ALLEGATION.

Reporter: THE E-MAIL

CAME AFTER REPORTS THAT AN

ARMY TRAINING BRIEF LISTED

BOTH ORGANIZATIONS AS HATE

GROUPS.

THERE IS NO ATTACK ON

CHRISTIANS OR THOSE WHO HOLD

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

BUT RETIRED GENERAL OF THE

FAMILY RESEARCH GENERAL

TELLS CBN NEWS THAT THE ARMY

NEEDS TO TAKE A STRONG STAND

ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM FOR

CHRISTIANS.

THE ARMY NEEDS TO COME

OUT WITH A STATEMENT THAT IS

VERY CLEAR IN SUPPORTING THE

RELIGIOUS LIBERTIES OF

CHRISTIANS, JUST AS THEY

HAVE WITH THE LIBERTIES OF

OTHER ORGANIZATIONS IN OUR

MILITARY TODAY.

Reporter: CHARLENE

ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: THE INTERNAL

REVENUE SERVICE IS USING ITS

COMPUTERS TO TRACK THE

ONLINE ACTIVITIES OF

AMERICANS AS IT TRIES TO

FIND TAX CHEATS.

THE I.R.S. HAS MASSIVELY

UPGRADED ITS COMPUTING POWER

IN RECENT YEARS.

AND U.S. NEWS AND WORLD

REPORT SAYS THE TAX AGENCY

IS PUTTING TOGETHER A HUGE

AMOUNT OF INFORMATION ON

TAXPAYERS, FROM CREDIT CARD

AND ELECTRONIC PAYMENTS,

INDIVIDUAL INTERNET

ADDRESSES, E-MAILING

PATTERNS AND MORE.

THEY CAN COMPARE THE

INFORMATION THEY GATHER WITH

PEOPLE'S TAX RETURNS, BUT

THE POTENTIAL FOR

SURVEILLANCE HAS SOME PEOPLE

WORRIED.

ONE EXPERT TELLS U.S. NEWS,

QUOTE,"I AM SURE PEOPLE WILL

BE CONCERNED ABOUT THE USE

OF PERSONAL INFORMATION ON

DATA BASIS AND GOVERNMENT,

AND THOSE CONCERNS ARE

WELL-TAKEN.

THERE SHOULD BE

SAFEGUARDS."

YOU CAN FIND ALL OF THE INFO

ON THIS STORY BY GOING TO

OUR WEBSITE ON

CBNNEWS.COM.

Gordon: IT IS AMAZING

WHAT THE I.R.S. IS DOING.

WHEN YOU START WONDERING,

WHY IN THE WORLD IS THE

I.R.S. INTERESTED IN WHAT I

PUT UP ON Facebook?

WELL, THE EXCUSE FOR IT IS

THEY'RE TRYING TO CATCH TAX

CHEATS.

AND THE DEAL IS, YOU CLAIM

ON YOUR TAX RETURNS THAT YOU

TAKE A BUSINESS TRIP, BUT

THEN YOU'RE POSTING ON LINE

THAT YOU'RE VISITING FAMILY

AT THE SAME TIME.

THAT'S THEIR JUSTIFICATION

FOR IT, BUT IT DOES -- THIS

IS BIG BROTHER.

AND WHEN YOU START THINKING

EVERYTHING YOU'RE DOING

ONLINE NOW IS BEING TRACKED

BY A HUGE GOVERNMENT

COMPUTER, AND I.R.S. AGENTS

ARE GOING THROUGH THAT,

LOOKING FOR PROFILE

INFORMATION, AND THEN IN THE

EVENT OF AN AUDIT, ALL OF

THAT DATA IS THEN AVAILABLE

TO THE AGENT GIVING YOU THE

AUDIT, IT DOES BRING A CHILL

DOWN YOUR SPINE, AND YOU

START WONDERING, WHERE HAVE

WE GONE AS A COUNTRY?

IF ALL OF THIS INFORMATION

IS FREE TO THEM WITHOUT A

WARRANT, THEN THERE IS NO

MORE PRIVACY.

AND IT WILL START DRIVING

BEHAVIOR THE OTHER WAY.

WOULD YOU STILL WANT TO BE

ON Facebook?

WOULD YOU STILL WANT TO BE

SENDING E-MAILS, WOULD YOU

STILL WANT TO BE DOING THAT

KIND OF BEHAVIOR IF YOU KNOW

THE I.R.S. IS GOING TO TRACK

IT?

THIS DOES HAVE REAL WORLD

CONSEQUENCES.

THERE WAS A CRIMINAL TRIAL

RECENTLY FOR SOMEONE WHO WAS

USING AN ILLEGAL TAX DODGE.

AND THEY FOUND OUT IN THE

SENTENCING HOW THE I.R.S.

KNEW.

THEY HAD GOTTEN A LIST OF

CLIENTS FROM A SO-CALLED TAX

EXPERT WHO WAS OPERATING OUT

OF SWITZERLAND, AND HIS LIST

OF CLIENTS THEN BECOME THE

AUDIT TARGETS FOR THAT YEAR

FOR THE I.R.S.

SO THEY'RE OUT THERE, AND

THEY'RE SNOOPING, AND

THEY'RE LOOKING, AND LOOKING

OVER YOUR SHOULDER.

Terry: WOW, THE NUMBER

OF MAN HOURS, AND JUST THE

NUMBER OF PEOPLE IT WOULD

TAKE TO DO SOMETHING LIKE

THAT --

Gordon: WELL, IT IS NOT

PEOPLE ANYMORE.

IT IS ALL COMPUTER AL

ALORRHYTHMS.

THEY WERE ABLE TO TAKE ALL

OF THE ELECTRONIC FILE

RETURNS AND PROCESS THEM IN

LESS THAN A DAY.

THAT USED TO TAKE FOUR

MONTHS.

Terry: WOW!

Gordon: SO THEY'VE GOT

SOME REALLY BIG MACHINES.

THEY'VE GOT A LOT OF

COMPUTER POWER.

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

IT IS CALLED FLY ASH, AND IT

FLOATS IN THE AIR WHERE THIS

MAN LIVES.

I WANT THIS UNIT TO BE

CLEANED UP.

I'M TIRED OF SEEING THIS.

Terry: WHAT EXACTLY IS

FLY ASH, AND IS IT A PUBLIC

HEALTH THREAT?

FIND OUT COMING UP.

Gordon: WHEN COAL IS

BURNED AT POWER PLANTS, IT

PRODUCES A BY-PRODUCT KNOWN

AS FLY ASH.

MANY TIMES THE WASTE ISN'T

PROPERLY STORED, AND IT CAN

GET INTO THE SURROUNDING

AREA.

AS MARK MARTIN FOUND OUT,

THAT CAN LEAD TO SERIOUS

HEALTH CONCERNS.

Reporter: THE TENNESSEE

KINGTON PLANT SUFFERS A

MAJOR FLY ASH SPILL.

IT COVERED HUNDREDS OF

ACRES, RESULTING IN THE

EVACUATION OF A NEARBY

RESIDENTIAL AREA, AND IT

DAMAGED A GAS LINE, AND

DISRUPTED TRANSPORTATION.

IN THE AFTERMATH, T.B.A.

ENDED UP BUYING ALL 180

PROPERTIES, AND 150 HOUSES

AFFECTED BY THE SPILL AND

RECOVERY EFFORT.

CONSTRUCTION WORKERS HAUL

OFF THE LAST REMAINING

PRODUCTS OF FLY ASH.

AN EARTH AND DIKE FAILED,

RELEASING AN ESTIMATED

5.4 MILLION PILES OF FLY

ASH, AND 300 ACRES

SURROUNDING THE KINGSTON

FOSSEL PLANT.

WHAT ABOUT THE EFFECTS OF

THE FLY ASH ON THE HEALTH OF

PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT?

ACCORDING TO THE T.B.A., IT

IS NOT A PROBLEM.

WE LOOK TO INDEPENDENT

STUDIES.

THEY HAVE DETERMINED IN

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF

SAMPLES, AND IN TWO STUDIES

THAT ARE PUBLIC, THAT THERE

IS NO HARM TO HUMAN HEALTH

AS A RESULT OF THE ELEMENTS

THAT ARE IN COAL ASH.

BUT I UNDERSTAND THAT PEOPLE

ARE WORRIED, AND PERHAPS

THERE ARE OTHER ISSUES AND

THEY NEED TO CHECK WITH

THEIR PHYSICIANS.

Reporter: TELL THAT TO

WORRIED PEOPLE LIVING IN

PENNSYLVANIA.

THE VIEW FROM THIS MAN'S

YARD IS A MASS OF RUBBLE.

HE SHOWED CBN NEWS THE

SUBSTANCE AROUND HIS

PROPERTY THAT HAS BEEN

TESTED AND PROVEN TO BE FLY

ASH.

THIS IS IN THE BACK OF

THE HOUSE.

YOU CAN SEE IT'S ALL OVER

EVERYWHERE.

Reporter: SUNNY SAYS HE

AND HIS WIFE HAVE BATTLED

CANCER, AND HE HAS ASTHMA.

I CERTAINLY DON'T BELIEVE

THAT IT IS HELPING ME,

ESPECIALLY LIKE WHEN I COME

OUT HERE.

MY EYES BEGIN TO WATER.

I CAN TASTE FOUL THINGS.

AND I SEE DUST THAT IS

COMING FROM THE DUMP UP

THERE.

Reporter: THE PRIMARY

CONCERN FOR RESIDENTS OF

LABEL, PENNSYLVANIA, IS WHAT

IS CALLED FUGITIVE DUST.

THEY SAY BECAUSE THE FLY ASH

IS NOT CONTAINED PROPERLY,

THE WIND BLOWS IT INTO THEIR

COMMUNITIES, COATING THEIR

PROPERTIES AND AFFECTING

THEIR HEALTH.

SUNNY'S NEIGHBORS, IMA AND

RUDY SMITH TELL CBN NEWS

THEY'RE BOTH ON KIDNEY

DIALYSIS.

IT ATE THE ROOF OFF OF MY

HOUSE.

IF IT DID THAT, WHAT IS IT

DOING TO THE INSIDES OF MY

BODY?

BREATHING, I'M COUGHING, AND

MY EYES ARE BURNING.

I CAN'T GO OUTSIDE AND SIT.

Reporter: IMA'S

HUSBAND, RUDY, BELIEVES FLY

ASH IS AT LEAST PARTLY TO

BLAME FOR THE DEATH OF HIS

FRIEND, WHO WAS ONLY 56

YEARS OLD.

I WANT THIS COMMUNITY TO

BE CLEANED UP.

I'M TIRED OF SEEING OUR

FRIENDS IN THIS COMMUNITY

DIE.

MY FRIEND -- WE USED TO WORK

AT THE COAL MINES.

HE DIED FROM CANCER IN THE

SINUSES.

Reporter: THE NATION'S

LARGEST COAL ASH EMPOUNDMENT

IS ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF

NORTH OF LABEL.

IT IS KNOWN AS LITTLE BLUE

RUN, AND SITS ON THE

PENNSYLVANIA-WEST VIRGINIA

BORDER.

THE FLY ASH IS STORED IN

THIS LARGE BODY OF WATER,

AND HOMEOWNERS HERE SAY

HEALTH ISSUES ARE

PREVALENT.

BE SABRINA TELLS CBN NEWS

SHE KNOWS A LOT OF PEOPLE

WHO ARE SICK, AND SHE BLAMES

FLY ASH.

I WOULD SAY 83, FOR

SURE.

IT IS ALL HEALTH PROBLEMS,

WHETHER IT IS CANCER OR IT'S

LUNG, SIMPLE SINUS ISSUES,

ASTHMA, WHICH IS LUNG, YOU

KNOW, SKIN RASHES THAT ARE

JUST -- THEY JUST APPEAR FOR

NO REASON.

Reporter: MARCY HUGHES

LIVES NEAR LITTLE BLUE RUN,

AND DOCTORS DIAGNOSED HER

DAUGHTER WITH HOPKINS

DISEASE.

MARCY BELIEVES FLY ASH IS

CONNECTED.

WHEN WE WENT TO A

PHYSICIAN IN PITTSBURGH, HE

ASKED US POINTBLANK WHAT

WERE WE DOING IN BEAVER

COUNTY, BECAUSE AS THE SAME

TIME SHE WAS DIAGNOSED AS

HOPKINS, THERE WERE SEVERAL

OTHERS.

Reporter: A 2010 REPORT

BY PHYSICIANS FOR SOCIAL

RESPONSIBILITY AND EARTH

JUSTICE STATES, QUOTE,""COAL

ASH CONTAINS ARSENIC, LED,

MERCURY, CADINUM AND SELL

SELSELLENIUM."

IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO

INJURY ALL OF THE MAJOR

HEALTH ORGANS, AND EVEN

CONTRIBUTE TO MORTALITY.

LISA WORKS FOR THE

ENVIRONMENTAL INTEGRITY

PROJECT, AND SHE IS AN

ADVOCATE FOR PEOPLE LIVING

NEAR BLUE RUN.

AS A PERSON WHO HAS SPENT

LOTS OF TIME WITH THESE

FOLKS WHO ARE LIVING NEAR

THESE SITES, THERE SEEMS TO

BE A PATTERN THAT DEVELOPS

THAT MAKES YOU WONDER: IS

THERE A CORRELATION BETWEEN

IT?

I THINK AT THIS POINTS WE

DON'T KNOW, BUT I THINK WE

SHOULD BE ERRING ON THE SIDE

OF CAUTION AND PUTTING IN

SAFETY MECHANISMS THAT

REALLY ARE COMMON SENSE SO

WE CAN PROTECT HUMAN

HEALTH.

Reporter: MARKUSI AND

OTHERS WANT THE E.P.A. TO

ESTABLISH FEDERAL MINIMUM

STANDARDS TO ALL 50 STATES

TO PROTECT THE HEALTH OF

PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT.

STANDARDS THAT THE STATE

WOULD ENFORCE.

THEY INCLUDE MINING FLY ASH

DUMPS, AS WELL AS COVERING

THEM DAILY.

PUTTING TARPS OVER THE

TRUCKS THAT HAUL THE ASH,

AND FULL DISCLOSURE OF

POLLUTANTS IN THE ASH, THE

PHASING OUT OF WET STORAGE

PLANTS, AND CONTINUOUS

MONITORING AT THE DUMP

SITE.

WE NEED TO SAY MAYBE THE

COST OF DOING BUSINESS

INCLUDES HEALTHY PRO

PROTECTION FOR EVERYONE,

WORKERS AND PEOPLE WHO SHARE

THE FENCE LINE.

Reporter: THE

ENVIRONMENTAL AGENCY

OFFICIALLY CONSIDERS FLY ASH

NON-HAZARDOUS WASTE.

BUT ITS WEBSITE SAYS IT

CONTAINS, QUOTE,"MERCURY,

CADINUM AND ARSENIC,

ASSOCIATED WITH CANCER.

E.P.A.'s RISK ASSESSMENT

AND DAMAGE REPORT, FIND

THESE CONTAMINATES CAN LEECH

INTO GROUND WATER AND OFTEN

MIGRATE INTO DRINKING WATER

SOURCES, POSING SIGNIFICANT

HEALTH CONCERNS."

AND THE E.P.A. SAID, "FLY

ASH IS COMPOSED OF VERY

SMALL, FINE PARTICLES, AND

BREATHING IN FLY ASH MAY

CAUSE RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS

IN HUMANS."

IT IS COMING ON MY

PROPERTY, HARMING ME AND MY

WIFE, PLUS MY NEIGHBORS,

PLUS MY DOGS.

I'VE LOST FOUR OR FIVE DOGS

TO CANCER.

YOU KNOW, IT'S JUST NOT

RIGHT.

Reporter: MARK MARTIN,

CBN NEWS, TENNESSEE AND

PENNSYLVANIA.

Gordon: THIS IS A

SERIOUS HEALTH CONCERN.

HERE LOCALLY, WE HAD A

DEVELOPER, WHO AT THE TIME

IT WAS LEGAL, AND HE GOT

APPROVAL FROM E.P.A., AND HE

BOUGHT FLY ASH FROM THE

POWER COMPANY, AND EVERYBODY

THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A

GREAT THING, A NEW USE FOR

FLY ASH.

AND HE WENT OUT AND BUILT A

GOLF COURSE USING FLY ASH

FOR THE DUNES.

HE DIDN'T KNOW AT THE TIME

IT WOULD THEN LEECH INTO THE

GROUND WATER.

AND ALL OF THOSE TOXINS THEN

WENT INTO THE WELLS OF THE

SURROUNDING COMMUNITY.

AND INSTEAD OF BEING A GREAT

BLESSING, IT BECAME A GREAT

CURSE, AND THERE ARE STILL

LAWSUITS COMING OUT FROM

THAT.

JUST BECAUSE THE E.P.A.

RIGHT NOW IS SAYING IT IS

LEGAL, THERE ARE OBVIOUSLY

SOME WARNING SIGNS THAT

THERE IS MORE TO IT THAN WE

REALLY KNOW ABOUT, AND WHAT

ARE THE SAFETY

CONSIDERATIONS BEING PUT IN

PLACE ON THESE DUMP SITES,

BOTH TO MAKE SURE THE DUST

DOESN'T FLY OFF AND WHEN

WATER COMES, IT DOESN'T

LEECH INTO THE GROUND

WATER.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE MORE ON

THIS BECAUSE THERE IS

ANOTHER TYPE OF FLY ASH THAT

COMES FROM MUNICIPAL SOLID

WASTE.

WHEN THAT IS BURNED, ALL

KINDS OF THINGS ARE IN

THAT.

WHEN THAT IS BURNS, THAT

RESIDUE IS EVEN MORE TOXIC

THAN WHAT YOU FIND IN COAL.

SO IF YOU'RE ANYWHERE NEAR A

DUMP, AND YOUR MUNICIPALITY

IS SAYING WE WANT TO OPEN

THIS UP FOR FLY ASH, AND IT

IS ALL LEGAL AND IT IS ALL

SAFE, TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT

IT.

TERRY?

Terry: WOW.

CONTAINMENT, CONTAINMENT,

CONTAINMENT.

WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'RE

GOING TO PRAYING FOR YOU AND

YOUR NEEDS.

BUT, FIRST, THE STORY OF A

WOMAN MIRACULOUSLY HEALED OF

A 35-POUND TUMOR, AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: A "SUPERBOOK"

BIBLE APP HAS BEEN

RELEASED.

IT IS CLIMBING INTO THE TOP

TEN ON THE iTUNES APP

STORE.

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET IT.

IT IS FREE, AND IT WILL BE A

GREAT, WONDERFUL WAY TO

INTRODUCE YOUR CHILDREN TO

THE BIBLE.

THERE ARE LOTS OF FUN GAMES,

AND THERE ARE BIBLE

QUIZZES.

THERE ARE CLIPS FROM

"SUPERBOOK," ALL PUT INTO

THE BIBLE STORIES SO AS

THEY'RE READING THAT

CHAPTER, IF THERE IS A

"SUPERBOOK" EPISODE ON IT,

THEY CAN WATCH CLIPS FROM

THE EPISODE, AND GET

INFORMATION ABOUT BOTH THE

ARCHEOLOGY OF THAT PERIOD,

AND FURTHER QUESTIONS ABOUT

WHAT THESE CHARACTERS DO IN

OTHER STORIES OF THE BIBLE,

AND IT'S ALL FREE.

SO IF YOU WANT MORE

INFORMATION, JUST GO TO

SUPERBOOK.CA/TV.

DOWNLOAD IT.

IT WILL BE A FUN THING FOR

YOUR CHILDREN.

Terry: JOAN YETS WAS

GIVEN DEVASTATING NEWS WHEN

HER DOCTOR TOLD SHE HAD A

10-POUND TUMOR.

I CAN HANDLE THIS LIKE

I'VE HANDLED EVERYTHING ELSE

IN MY LIFE, ME AND GOD.

I WAS HAVING BLEEDING.

I FINALLY WENT TO THE DOCTOR

TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON.

AND HE DID A COLONOSCOPY AND

HE FOUND A TUMOR -- HE

CALLED IT A MASS.

WHEN I CAME OUT OF THE

ANESTHESIA, HE SAID WE ARE

GOING TO TAKE YOU INTO THE

C.A.T. SCAN.

IT WAS A 35 TO 40-POUND

TUMOR.

AND THERE WAS AN INFECTION

IN THERE.

WE WENT THROUGH A 10-DAY

COURSE OF TREATMENT WITH

ANTIBIOTICS.

I WAS IN SHOCK.

I TOLD GOD IN MY PRAYER,

WHEN I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

CANCER, GOD, I WANT TO BE

WITH YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING,

BUT I'M NOT DONE DOING YOUR

WORK YET.

THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE

THAT NEED WHAT YOU HAVE

GIVEN ME.

THEN I STARTED GOING TO THE

CHURCH I GO TO NOW, AND THEY

REALLY BELIEVED IN HEALING.

AND I WENT TO THE ELDERS AND

THEY PRAYED OVER ME.

I FELT NOT ANYTHING

PHYSICAL, BUT JUST

SPIRITUALLY.

AND THIS IS WHERE I NEED TO

BE, WITHIN A BODY OF

BELIEVERS.

I CAN'T DO THIS ALONE.

THAT NEXT DAY I WENT BACK

FOR ANOTHER C.T. SCAN FOR A

FOLLOWUP, AND THEY FOUND

NOTHING.

THERE WAS NO INFECTION AND

THERE WAS NO TUMOR.

IT IS JUST AMAZING WHAT GOD

HAS DONE.

SO THIS INCIDENT ACTUALLY

TAUGHT ME HOW TO REACH OUT.

IT TAUGHT ME THE CHURCH IS

THERE FOR ME.

THE CHURCH IS THERE TO PRAY

OVER ME.

WHEN TWO OR THREE ARE

GATHERED TOGETHER, THERE HE

IS IN THE MIDST OF US.

Terry: AND HERE WE ARE

TO GATHER TOGETHER TO PRAY

FOR YOUR PRAYER NEEDS, AND

HE IS IN THE MIDST OF US.

WE WANT TO REACH OUT AND

PRAY FOR YOU, PRAY FOR THE

THINGS YOU'RE ASKING FOR IN

YOUR OWN LIFE, AND ASK FOR

GOD'S BLESSING AND FAVOR ON

ALL OF YOU.

Gordon: REALIZE THE

CHURCH IS YOU.

AND YOU HAVE ACCESS TO THE

POWER THAT IS AVAILABLE TO

ALL BELIEVERS.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT

"WHERE TWO OR MORE ARE

GATHERED TOGETHER IN MY

NAME, THERE I AM IN THE

MIDST OF THEM."

YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL HIM

DOWN FROM HEAVEN.

HE IS GOING TO BE RIGHT

THERE WITH YOU.

IF THERE IS SOMEBODY WITH

YOU RIGHT NOW, JUST ASK THEM

TO COME AND LAY HANDS ON YOU

AND CLAIM THIS GREAT VERSE

FROM JAMES 5: "IF ANY OF YOU

ARE SICK, LET THEM CALL FOR

THE ELDERS, AND LET THEM

PRAY.

AND THE PRAYER OF FAITH WILL

RAISE THEM UP."

SO LET'S JUST PRAY,

BELIEVING THAT GOD IS ABLE,

THAT HE IS WILLING, THAT BY

HIS STRIPES WE WERE HEALED.

AND LET'S JUST BELIEVE THAT

RIGHT NOW, AND JUST BE LIKE

LITTLE CHILDREN, AND SAY,

OKAY, GOD, I'LL DO IT I IN

ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR WORD.

AND WE'LL BELIEVE, AND

TOGETHER WE CAN HAVE GREAT

MIRACLES HAPPEN.

NOW, IF YOU'RE ALONE, DON'T

WORRY BECAUSE TERRY AND I

WILL AGREE WITH YOU.

AND WE'LL COME INTO

AGREEMENT WITH YOU, AND YOU

CAN LAY HANDS ON YOURSELF.

AND LET'S JUST BELIEVE GOD.

BELIEVE GOD.

REALIZE THAT THE SENTERIAN

SERVANT WASN'T AROUND.

IT WAS JUST WORDS SPOKEN BY

JESUS, AND SHE WAS HEALED

THAT VERY HOUR, AND THAT CAN

HAPPEN TO YOU.

SO LET'S JUST PRAY AND

BELIEVE, AND LET GOD DO ALL

OF THE REST.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU, AND WE

JUST COME INTO AGREEMENT

WITH THEM NOW.

AND WE JUST KNOW NOW, WHEN

TWO OR THREE ARE GATHERED

TOGETHER IN MY NAME, YOU'RE

HERE IN THE MIDST OF US.

AND SO, LORD, WE'RE

GATHERING, AND WE'RE

GATHERED IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, THE SAVIOR, THE

HEALER, THE DELIVERER.

THE RESTORER OF OUR SOULS --

THOSE ARE YOUR NAMES, AND

WE'RE GATHERED IN YOUR NAME

NOW.

SO WE JUST ASK FOR YOU TO BE

RELEASED INTO THESE BODIES

NOW, AND WE DECLARE OVER

THEM BE HEALED NOW, IN

JESUS' NAME.

DEPRESSION, DARK THOUGHTS,

BE GONE NOW.

AND REPLACED WITH

RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND

JOY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.

LET PEACE COME TO YOUR

PEOPLE, LORD GOD.

THE PEACE THAT SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING, FOR YOUR NAME

IS THE PRINCE OF PEACE.

LET THEM BE HEALED AND

RESTORED NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

THERE IS A WOMAN, YOUR NAME

IS MARY.

YOU'RE HAVING DIFFICULTY

BREATHING.

AND I BELIEVE IT'S A

RESPIRATORY ILLNESS THAT IS

CHRONIC.

I THINK IT IS CALLED

C.O.P.D.

YOU'RE ABLE TO BREATHE NOW.

JUST TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND

REALIZE THE ENERGY YOU'RE

MISSING, THE LIFE THAT

YOU'RE MISSING, HAS BEEN

RESTORED TO YOU NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

HE IS HEALING YOU NOW.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE CHRONIC

MIGRAINES, AND THEY ACTUALLY

START HERE, AT THE BACK OF

YOUR HEAD, AND MOVE UP AS

THEY GET WORSE.

IT ACTUALLY ISN'T JUST A

MIGRAINE, IT IS BECAUSE YOU

HAVE A MISALIGNMENT BETWEEN

YOUR BRAINSTEM AND YOUR

SPINE.

GOD IS STRAIGHTENING THAT

OUT FOR YOU NOW.

YOU'LL FEEL THAT RELEASE IN

YOUR HEAD WHERE THAT

PRESSURE AND INTENSE PAIN IS

GONE NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH DAMAGE TO THE

NERVE ENDINGS, AND IT IS

LIKE A PAIN IN THE RIGHT

SIDE OF YOUR NECK.

AND IT IS CHRONIC, AND THE

DOCTORS DON'T HAVE ANY

SOLUTION FOR YOU, BUT GOD

DOES.

HE IS ABLE TO HEAL THAT.

AND SO NOW IN JESUS' NAME,

JUST RECEIVE THAT.

AND THOSE NERVES BE RESTORED

NOW IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A CONDITION, IT'S

LIKE -- HYPER -- I DON'T

KNOW WHAT YOU CALL IT, BUT

YOU PERSPIRE UNBELIEVABLY.

IT IS YOUR HANDS, IT'S YOUR

FEET, AND IT IS SO

UNCOMFORTABLE.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU.

YOU'VE HAD IT FOR A LONG

TIME, AND IT IS JUST GOING

TO BE GONE NOW.

Gordon: I'LL JUST

AFFIRM THAT.

YOU'RE FEELING A WAVE --

IT'S LIKE A COOLNESS --

COMING OVER YOU.

IN JESUS' NAME, YOU'RE BEING

HEALED.

LORD, WE THANK YOU, FOR YOU

ARE THE HEALER.

WHEN WE GATHER IN YOUR NAME,

YOU'RE HERE.

THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU

HAVE DONE FOR US.

WE BLESS YOU AND WE PRAISE

YOUR NAME.

IN JESUS' NAME WE PRAY,

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOOD REPORT, SO GIVE US

A CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

AND JUST TELL US YOUR

STORY.

AND IF YOU NEED PRAYER, IF

YOU NEED SOMEONE TO AGREE

WITH YOU IN PRAYER, I

BELIEVE IN PERSEVEREING

PRAYER.

IT IS OKAY.

JESUS SAID, COME, SEEK, ASK,

KNOCK.

YOU CAN PRAY MULTIPLE

TIMES.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU 24 HOURS

A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.

IT IS OUR HONOR AND OUR

PRIVILEGE TO PRAY FOR YOU.

SO CALL US.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP LATER,

A FORMER MUSLIM FACES THE

CONSEQUENCES OF BEING A

CHRISTIAN IN IRAN.

I FAILED, AND MY LEG WAS

BROKEN, SHATTERED, I KNEW IT

WAS GOING TO BE HARD.

Terry: THE MIRACLE THAT

HELPS THIS MAN ESCAPE A

SNAKE PIT.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS AWARDED

AN ARMY CHAPLAIN THE MEDAL

OF HONOR FOR HIS HEROISM

DURING THE KOREAN WAR.

HIS NEPHEW ACCEPTED THE

AWARD FROM THE PRESIDENT ON

THURSDAY.

CAPON WAS KNOWN AS FATHER

CAPON.

HE SAVED A FELLOW SOLDIER

FROM BEING EXECUTED.

HE LED PRAYER SERVICES IN

CAPTIV CAPTIVITY.

HE WAS PERSECUTED FOR HIS

FAITH, BUT NEVER LOST IT.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

HELPING TO RELIEVE HUNGER

THERE PROGRAMS IN THE

AFRICAN COUNTRY OF NIGER.

EVERYTHING WAS WIPED OUT,

INCLUDING MOST OF THE CROPS

THEY SURVIVED ON.

"OPERATION BLESSING" BOARDED

SMALL BOATS SETTING OUT TO

HELP MALI.

THEY BROUGHT SEEDS FOR

VILLAGERS TO REPLANT THEIR

GARDENS.

THE HARVEST FROM THOSE SEEDS

WILL HELP ILIAT ALLEVIATE

SOME OF THE HUNGER THAT HAS

PLAGUED THAT AREA.

FOR MORE, YOU CAN GO TO

CBN.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: HE KNOWS WHAT

IT MEANS TO SUFFER FOR HIS

FAITH.

HE'S BEEN KIDNAPPED, BEATEN,

THROWN INTO A SNAKE PIT, AND

LEFT FOR DEAD.

BUT NOTHING COULD MAKE HIM

DENY HIS SAVIOR.

Reporter: RUSS GREW UP

WIN PRE-REVOLUTIONARY IRAN.

HIS PARENTS WERE MODERATE

MUSLIMS, BUT AS A CHILD,

RUSS WAS OFTEN SKEPTICAL

ABOUT HIS LOVE.

MY DAD TRIED TO TEACH ME,

BUT I WAS -- I HAD DOUBTS IN

MY MIND.

Reporter: HE ATTENDED A

SCHOOL WITH SEVERAL AR MEAN

ARMENIAN CHRISTIANS.

THEY TALKED ABOUT HOW

JESUS WAS BORN, FROM THE

VIRGIN MARY, WHICH IS WHAT

MADE ME INTEREST RATEED IN

THE CHRIST.

Reporter: DURING RUSS'

CHILDHOOD, THE SHAW OF IRAN

WAS IN POWER, AND MUSLIMS

WERE MORE TOLERANT OF

IERAS.

CHRISTIANS.

BEFORE, CHRISTIANS AND

MUSLIMS LIVED BESIDE EACH

OTHER AND WE NEVER HAD

PROBLEMS.

Reporter: RUSS WENT TO

COLLEGE IN THE UNITED

STATES, AND THEN IN 1979,

HIS WORLD CHANGED FOREVER,

WHEN THE SHAW WAS OVERTHROWN

BY THE AYATOLLAH KHAMENEI.

HE WAS AFRAID TO RETURN TO

IRAN, AND EVENTUALLY MARRIED

A WOMAN WHO ATTENDED A PEN

PENTECOSTAL CHURCH.

ONE NIGHT HE SLIPPED INTO A

CHURCH SERVICE.

I KNOW CHRIST WAS WITH

ME.

I WAS CRYING, ACTUALLY.

I WENT FORWARD AND ACCEPTED

CHRIST TO BECOME MY SAVIOR.

AND MY SINS WILL BE

FORGIVEN.

Reporter: RUSS MOVED

BACK TO IRAN TO CARE FOR HIS

SICK MOTHER.

HE MARRIED A MUSLIM WOMAN,

AND THEY HAD A SON NAMED

SALAR.

HE COULDN'T STOP TELLING

PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS, AND THE

NEW MUSLIM GOVERNMENT DIDN'T

LIKE THAT.

I WAS STOPPED BY A REGIME

GUARD, AND THEY BLINDFOLDED

ME AND THEY TOOK ME TO THEIR

PLACE.

THEY KEPT ME FOR ABOUT

THREE, FOUR DAYS.

THEY DIDN'T FEED ME

ANYTHING.

THEY JUST GAVE ME SOME

WATER.

AND THEY STARTED BEATING

ME.

THEY BEAT ME ABOUT 90

TIMES.

I NEVER FELT THE PAIN, EVEN

THOUGH MY BACK WAS BLEEDING,

AND I WAS SEEING THE BLOOD

DRIPPING ON THE FLOOR.

THEY COME AND BEAT ME UP.

AND I CALLED FOR CHRIST.

I SAID PRAISE THE LORD.

MY BACK WAS BRUISED AND

SCARRED AND BLEEDING.

BUT I WAS STANDING UP AND

SMILING.

AND I WAS TELLING THEM, GOD

BLESS YOU.

THEY WERE JUST STUNNED.

THEY COULDN'T SAY ANYTHING.

Reporter: BUT THIS

WASN'T THE ONLY TIME THEY

ARRESTED AND TORTURED RUSS.

EVERY TIME THEY DID THIS,

THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING

TO, YOU KNOW, TEACH ME A

LESSON.

AND THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE

ME COME BACK, BUT EACH TIME

I WAS PRAYING THROUGH THE

BEATING, AND I BECAME

STRONGER.

Reporter: RUSS TOOK A

JOB AS A FOREMAN WITH A

MINING COMPANY, WHERE HE HAD

ANOTHER ENCOUNTER WITH A

GUARD.

HE CAME OUT OF MY OFFICE,

PROBABLY FOUR TO SEVEN FEET

AWAY FROM MY OFFICE.

AND I WAS WALKING RIGHT

BESIDE HIM, AND HE WOULD

PUSH ME DOWN.

AND I FELL, AND MY LEG WAS,

YOU KNOW, BROKEN,

SHATTERED.

AND THIS PLACE WAS IN THE

EDGE OF THE DESERT.

AND WHEN I FELL IN THERE, I

KNEW THERE WAS GOING TO BE

SNAKES AROUND ME, CRAWLING.

I WAS PRAYING, SCREAMING FOR

HELP.

BUT NOBODY COULD HEAR ME.

Reporter: LATER THAT

NIGHT, RUSS' BOSS CAME TO

CHECK ON HIM, HEARD HIM

CRYING FOR HELP, AND PULLED

HIM FROM THE PIT.

THEY CALLED 9-1-1, AND

THEY TOOK ME OUT, AND I HAD

A 10-HOUR SURGERY ON MY LEG

AND MY HIP.

AND I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL, I

THINK ABOUT A WEEK.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

RUSS WAS IN THE SNAKE PIT

FOR SEVERAL HOURS, HE WAS

NEVER BITTEN.

I WAS JUST PRAYING THE

WHOLE TIME.

AND IT WAS ANOTHER PROBABLY

MIRACLE THAT WAS BY CHRIST.

Reporter: WHEN RUSS

RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL,

HE ESCAPED TO TURKEY AND

EVENTUALLY SOUGHT ASYLUM

FROM THE U.S.

HIS WIFE, HOWEVER, REFUSED

TO LEAVE, AND THEY WERE

DIVORCED.

BUT HE WAS REUNITED WITH HIS

SON IN 2007.

TODAY RUSS LOVES SHARING

CHRIST WITH MUSLIMS.

LOOKING AT IT FROM THE

RADICAL POINT, CHRIST CAN

GIVE THEM PEACE.

GOD CAN GIVE THEM FREEDOM.

PROBABLY NOBODY HAS TOLD

THEM ABOUT THAT.

Reporter: RUSS SETTLED

IN KENTUCKY AND WORKS WITH A

LOCAL TRANSPORT COMPANY.

SALAR IS NOW ATTENDING

COLLEGE.

RUSS MARRIED BRENDA, AND

THEY ARE BOTH ACTIVE IN

THEIR CHURCH.

JESUS IS MY WHOLE LIFE.

I FOUND PEACE IN JESUS.

I FOUND COMFORT IN JESUS.

I FIND FREEDOM IN JESUS.

I BELIEVE THAT MY SINS ARE

FORGIVEN, AND I WILL

DEFINITELY HAVE A GOOD

LIFE.

Gordon: YOU, TOO, CAN

FIND PEACE IN JESUS.

YOU CAN FIND COMFORT.

EVEN IN THE MIDDLE OF BEING

TORTURED.

HERE RUSS IS PRAYING, AND HE

IS ASKING FOR JESUS TO BE

WITH HIM.

AND HE SAYS, I DIDN'T FEEL

THE PAIN.

JESUS TOOK IT ALL AWAY.

HE IS IN THAT PIT,

SURROUNDED BY SNAKES, AND HE

ASKED FOR JESUS TO BE WITH

HIM.

YOU CAN HAVE THAT SAME

PEACE, THAT SAME SECURITY,

THAT SAME COMFORT.

AND THEN THE GREATEST GIFT

HE GIVES US IS LOVE, TO KNOW

THAT WE'RE ACCEPTED JUST AS

YOU ARE.

JUST AS YOU ARE.

WHY?

BECAUSE HE MADE YOU.

AND HE WANTS TO BE WITH

YOU.

AND HE WANTS TO HAVE THAT

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU.

IF THIS IS FOR YOU, IF THIS

IS WHAT YOU WANT, JUST BOW

YOUR HEAD RIGHT NOW.

DON'T CHANGE THE CHANNEL.

DON'T TURN AWAY.

LET WHAT RUSS FOUND FIND

YOU.

SO THAT YOU CAN KNOW THAT

SAME PEACE, THAT SAME

SECURITY, THAT SAME COMFORT,

THAT SAME LOVE.

IT'S REAL SIMPLE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK.

JESUS SAYS, "BEHOLD I STAND

AT THE DOOR AND KNOCK.

IF ANYONE OPENS THE DOOR,

I'LL COME IN."

YOU CAN BE THAT ANYONE WHO

OPENS THE DOOR.

HOW DO YOU DO IT?

BY PRAYING AND FOR ASKING,

AND ASKING FOR HIM TO COME

IN.

SO PRAY WITH ME.

IT WILL BE VERY SIMPLE.

AND I PROMISE YOU, JESUS

PROMISES YOU, HE'LL ANSWER.

HE'LL SAVE YOU.

HE'LL GIVE YOU THAT PEACE.

LET'S PRAY.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU, AND,

LORD, I JUST CONFESS TO YOU

I'M TROUBLED, AND I NEED

PEACE.

I NEED FORGIVENESS.

I NEED YOUR LOVE.

AND I NEED TO KNOW THAT YOUR

PRESENCE IS IN ME AND WITH

ME.

SO, JESUS, RIGHT NOW I OPEN

THE DOOR, AND I ASK THAT YOU

COME IN.

I ASK THAT YOU COME INTO MY

LIFE, INTO MY HEART, INTO

MAY INNER MOST BEING.

AND, JESUS, I WANT TO BE

WITH YOU.

I WANT TO KNOW THIS PEACE.

SO DO IT NOW.

BE WITH ME NOW, FOR I ASK IT

IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, JUST BAPTIZE THEM IN

YOUR PEACE.

LET THEM BE SURROUNDED WITH

A FLOOD OF LOVE AND PEACE

AND JOY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.

DO IT NOW, FOR I ASK IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I'VE

GOT SOMETHING FOR YOU.

IT'S A FREE PACKET, AND IT'S

ALL ABOUT HOW YOU LIVE THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE.

IT IS CALLED "A NEW DAY,"

AND IT'S FREE.

ALL YOU'VE GOT TO DO IS ASK

FOR IT.

THE NUMBER IS FREE.

OBLIGATION AT ALL.

JUST CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

AND JUST SAY, I PRAYED, AND

I WANT TO GET "A NEW DAY," I

PACKET.

IT IS THERE FOR YOU.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

NEW MOVIE ABOUT FEEDING

ADDICTIONS FOR GOOD.

WE'LL SHOW YOU SCENES FROM

"HOMERUN," AND TELL YOU

ABOUT THE REAL LIFE RECOVERY

PROGRAM BEHIND THIS FILM.

Gordon: THE MAN IN THIS

NEXT STORY HAD TO BEG FOR

MONEY TO FEED HIS FAMILY.

AFTER HE AND HIS WIFE BOTH

BECAME SICK.

WITH SIX CHILDREN TO CARE

FOR, HE WAS DESPERATE, BUT

HE STILL HELD ON TO A DREAM

THAT FINALLY CAME TRUE.

Reporter: HE AND HIS

WIFE HAVE BEEN MARRIED 30

YEARS, AND HAVE HAD SIXh

CHILDREN TOGETHER.ú

FOR DECADES, ABUNI DID

CONSTRUCTION.

HE MADE A GOOD LIVING, BUT

MOST OF THE MONEY WAS SPENT

ON HIS WIFE'S MEDICAL

BILLS.

Translator: MY WIFE

DEVELOPED A BLOOD CONDITION

THAT LEFT HER VERY TIRED AND

WEAK.

HE WENT TO THE HOSPITAL AND

SAW YOU DOCTORS ALL OF THE

TIME.

WE SPENT EVERYTHING WE HAD

ON DOCTORS.

Reporter: SHE

EVENTUALLY RECOVERED, BUT

THE FAMILY WAS LEFT

DESTITUDE.

WHEN I MET THEM, THEY TOLD

ME A HEART CONDITION AND

OTHER MEDICAL PROBLEMS

FORCED ABUNI TO STOP

CONSTRUCTION WORK ALL

TOGETHER.

Translator: I COULD ONLY

DO LITTLE JOBS HERE AND

THERE.

I TRIED TO MAKE ENOUGH MONEY

TO FEED MY FAMILY.

SOMETIMES I WOULD ASK FOR

CREDIT.

SOMETIMES I BEGGED PEOPLE TO

GIVE ME A LITTLE BIT OF

MONEY.

THAT WAS VERY HARD.

I WAS ALWAYS AFRAID THAT ONE

DAY I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO

PROVIDE FOR THEM.

Reporter: HE DID SAY

THERE WAS SOMETHING HE KNEW

HE COULD DO TO SUPPORT HIS

FAMILY, BUT IT WAS ONLY A

DISTANT DREAM.

Translator: I WOULD LIKE

TO HAVE A FEW SHEEP, BUT

THEY ARE VERY EXPENSIVE.

WE BARELY HAVE ENOUGH MONEY

TO SURVIVE, SO WE COULD

NEVER SAVE ENOUGH FOR

SHEEP.

Reporter: SO ABNUA AND

HIS FAMILY WANT TO RAISE

SHEEP.

THEY HAVE PLENTY OF LAND TO

DO IT.

THE FIRST BIG CONSIDERATION

IS WHERE ARE THEY GOING TO

KEEP THEM?

SO THE FIRST THING WE DID

WAS BUILD A BIG ADDITION ON

TO THE SIDE OF THEIR HOUSE.

WE ARE STARTING OFF THEIR

HERD WITH HALF A DOZEN

SHEEP.

WHEN WE ARRIVED, HE AND HIS

FAMILY KNEW THEIR LIVES HAD

CHANGED.

Translator: I'M VERY

HAPPY.

THANKS TO GOD FOR THIS

BLESSING.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL DAY FOR

ALL OF US.

Reporter: ABNUI WILL

FEED HIS SHEEP, AND THE MILK

FROM THE SHEEP WILL HELP

FEED HIS FAMILY.

Translator: I USED TO SEE

PEOPLE GIVING MILK TO THEIR

CHILDREN OR FEEDING CHEESE.

IT MADE ME SAD I COULDN'T DO

TO FOR MY FAMILY, AND NOW I

CAN.

ALL I WANTED IS A SIMPLE

LIFE.

AND NOW WE HAVE THAT AND

MORE.

I WANT TO THANK ALL OF THE

PEOPLE WHO HELPED US.

WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, A SNEAK

PEEK AT THE NEW FILM ABOUT

SECOND CHANCES.

FIND OUT ABOUT THE REAL LIFE

RECOVERIES BEHIND THE MAKING

OF THIS MOVIE, AFTER THIS.

Terry: NEXT FRIDAY, THE

MOVIE "HOMERUN" WILL OPEN IN

THEATERS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

ACCORDING TO THE EXECUTIVE

PRODUCER, THAT'S A MIRACLE

IN ITSELF.

WE'LL FIND OUT WHY IN JUST A

MOMENT.

BUT FIRST, TAKE A LOOK AT A

CLIP FROM THE FILM.

Announcer: NOW STEPPING

UP, NUMBER 9, CORY BRAND.

CORY, YOU DRINKING ON THE

PLANE?

WOULD YOU PLEASE SLOW

DOWN!

Terry: CORY BRAND'S

D.U.I. CAUGHT ON TAPE, OVER

A MILLION HITS.

DOC, IS HE ALL RIGHT?

YOU'VE BEEN SUSPENDED FOR

EIGHT WEEKS.

WAS THERE ALCOHOL

INVOLVED IN THE ACCIDENT?

THE GRISLYS WANT PROOF

YOU ARE ATTENDING A 12-STEP

PROGRAM.

Terry: POLICE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," THE

EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF

"HOMERUN," CAROL MATTHEW.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH

US.

THANK YOU.

Terry: LET'S TALK ABOUT

THE MIRACLE BEHIND THE MAKE

OMAKING OF THIS MOVIE.

I THINK THE FIRST MIRACLE

IS I'M PRODUCING IT.

I NEVER REALLY SAW MYSELF

PRODUCING MYSELF A FEATURE

FILM, BUT WHEN MY PARTNER

AND CO-PRODUCER SUGGESTED,

LET'S JUST DO A FILM, I SAID

YES.

AND THE SECOND MIRACLE WAS

HOW QUICKLY WE GOT FUNDING.

ANOTHER MIRACLE WAS GETTING

THE FOLKS THAT CELEBRATE

RECOVERY ON BOARD WITH

ANDREW OKULITCAN OKLAHOMA

GROUP THAT DIDN'T HAVE

EXPERIENCE.

IT WAS ONE THING AFTER

ANOTHER.

Terry: YOU MENTIONED

THIS, BUT THE SUBJECT YOU

TALK ABOUT IS RECOVERY AFTER

ADDICTION.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS?

TOM SAID, LET'S DO A

FILM.

AND ANOTHER MIRACLE IS

INSTEAD OF JUST BARGING OUT

THE DOOR AND DECIDING ON A

SUBJECT MATTER, I REALLY

WENT AND PRAYED ABOUT IT.

AND THE IDEA OF ADDICTION

JUST CAME TO ME, AND I

REALLY FELT LIKE IT WAS FROM

THE LORD.

BECAUSE IT REALLY WASN'T

BEEPING ON MY RADIO

ANYWHERE.

Terry: REALLY?

I DIDN'T HAVE A KNOWN

ISSUE OF THAT IN MY FAMILY.

I HADN'T JUST READ THE MOST

RECENT ARTICLE ABOUT

ADDICTION IN AMERICA, SO IT

REALLY FELT INSPIRED BY THE

LORD.

Terry: EACH MEMBER OF

YOUR PRODUCTION TEAM DID

SOMETHING UNUSUAL TO PREPARE

FOR THIS FILM.

TELL US ABOUT THAT.

Reporter: TWO O.

TWO OF THE SCREEN WRITERS

AND MY PARTNER, WE DECIDED

WE WOULD GO THROUGH THE 12

STEPS OF RECOVERY.

IT IS SOMETHING WE DID,

SAYING WE WERE GOING TO DO

IT FOR RESEARCH.

AND I THINK GOD JUST SMILED,

BECAUSE HE WAS LIKE, NO,

YOU'LL HAVE MORE THAT YOU'LL

GET OUT OF IT.

Terry: WHAT HAPPENED

WHEN YOU WENT THROUGH THAT?

EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN

JOURNEY.

BUT I THINK IT OPENED MY

EYES.

WHEN I WAS PRAYING WHAT TO

DO A MOVIE ABOUT, I FELT THE

LORD SAY, I WANT TO FREE

PEOPLE FROM THEIR PRISONS OF

ADDICTION.

AND WHAT I REALIZED IS WE

ALL HAVE PRISONS.

WE ALL HAVE AREAS OF OUR

HEART WHERE WE FEEL LOCKED

UP, AND AREAS OF OUR LIFE

WHERE WE FEEL STUCK.

I FELT LIKE I WAS NO

DIFFERENT.

I MIGHT NOT HAVE AN ISSUE

WITH CHEMICAL ADDICTION OR

SOME OF THE LARGER PROBLEMS

WITH THINK OF WHEN WE THINK

OF 12 STEPS, BUT I HAVE

OTHER ISSUES IN MY LIFE THAT

NEED THE ATTENTION AND THE

SURRENDER THAT IT TAKES TO

HAVE THE HEALING.

Terry: IT IS SO

INTERESTING, BECAUSE JESUS

SAID THAT'S WHY HE CAME, TO

SET THE CAPTIVE FREE.

YOU CHOOSE TO CELEBRATE

RECOVERY, AN A REALLY

EFFECTIVE PROGRAM.

TELL US ABOUT THAT.

I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT IT,

REALLY.

BUT IN MY CHURCH, WE

CELEBRATE RECOVERY.

BUT ON SUNDAY MORNING, AN

INDIVIDUAL WOULD GET UP AND

TELL THEIR STORY.

GREAT COURAGE TO TALK ABOUT

SOME OF THE DARKER PLACES OF

THEIR LIVES, AND TELL HOW

THE LORD HEALED THEM THROUGH

THIS PROCESS OF CELEBRATE

RECOVERY.

I THOUGHT, HOW INTERESTING

WOULD THAT BE TO HAVE OUR

MAIN CHARACTER BE PUSHED

ALONG IN HIS STORY BY THE

STORIES OF OTHERS IN

CELEBRATE RECOVERY.

Terry: IT REALLY IS AN

AFFECTIVE PROGRAM IN LOTS OF

CHURCHES AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

WHO IS THE TARGET FOR THIS

FILM?

I THINK IT IS APPEALING

TO PEOPLE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE

THE CHURCH, BUT IF I HAD TO

SAY WHO IS THIS REALLY FOR?

I WOULD SAY IT IS FOR THE

CHURCH.

I BELIEVE THERE ARE SO MANY

PEOPLE IN OUR CHURCH PEWS

TODAY THAT ARE STUCK IN AN

AREA OF THEIR LIVES.

THEY LOVE THE LORD, AND THEY

KNOW THE WORD, BUT THERE IS

ONE NAGGING AREA.

MAYBE IT IS A DECISION THEY

CAN'T UNDO THAT THEY WISH

THEY COULD.

MAYBE IT IS A HABIT THEY

CAN'T BREAK.

I BELIEVE THIS FILM GIVES

HOPE FOR CHANGE.

I THINK SOMETIMES WE JUST

THINK WE'LL NEVER CHANGE.

THAT THIS IS IT, WE'RE GOING

TO LIVE LIKE THIS FOR THE

REST OF OUR LIVES.

I THINK "HOMERUN" IS FOR ALL

OF THOSE PEOPLE.

I BELIEVE THOSE PEOPLE ARE

ALL IN NEED ARE HEARING THAT

GOD IS INTERESTED IN HEALING

ASPECTS OF OUR LIFE THAT

WE'RE STUCK IN.

Terry: WITH THAT SAID,

IS THE TAKE AWAY HOPE?

IT IS HOPE, IT IS A

BELIEF THAT WE CAN GET

BETTER, IT IS A BELIEF THAT

GOD IS INTERESTED IN US, AND

IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO LIVE

A LIFE THAT GOD CREATED US

TO LIVE.

Terry: HOW DID THIS

CHANGE YOU?

YOU SPOKE ABOUT HOW UNUSUAL

IT WAS THAT YOU EVEN SAID

YES.

IT IS MORE UNUSUAL THAT

I'M SITTING HERE.

IT HAS CHANGED ME IN SO MANY

WAYS.

I HAVE SAT ACROSS FROM MEN

AND WOMEN WHO HAVE GOTTEN ON

BOARD AND LINKED ARMS.

YOU CANNOT DO A FILM WITHOUT

AMAZING PEOPLE BEHIND YOU.

OUR DIRECTOR, OR CAST, FOR

THEM TO SAY YES TO THIS FILM

MEANS THEY SAID NO TO

SOMETHING ELSE.

INVESTORS WHO PAID FOR THIS

FILM TO BE DONE -- IT IS AN

AMAZING ROAD.

I SEE THE LORD'S HAND.

MY HUSBAND SAYS HE HAS GROWN

IN HIS FAITH JUST WATCHING.

AND SO I'VE GROWN.

I'VE GROWN AND SEEN AND

TRUSTED LORD.

Terry: YOU EXPERIENCED

THE FAVOR OF GOD?

ABSOLUTELY.

EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

Terry: THE MOVIE WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT IS CALLED

"HOMERUN," AND IT IS GOING

TO OPEN IN THEATERS

NATIONWIDE, APRIL 19th.

AND THERE IS A BOOK BASED ON

THE MOVIE, CALLED THE SAME

THING, "HOMERUN."

WATCH FOR IT.

IT IS GOOD.

IT HAS GOT A GREAT MESSAGE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING

WITH US, AND WE'LL BE

PRAYING FOR GREAT SUCCESS.

THANK YOU.

Terry: 2 CORINTHIANS 1:

20: "FOR NO MATTER HOW MANY

PROMISES GOT HAS MADE, THEY

ARE YES IN CHRIST."

THAT'S FOR YOU, GOD BLESS

YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT WEEK.
