Lee: A RARE BACTERIA.

SEVEN OUT OF 10 PEOPLE

WHO CONTRACT THIS BACTERIA

DIE WITHIN 24 HOURS.

Lee: EATING HER ALIVE.

I WASN'T GOING TO LIVE

FOR TOO LONG.

Lee: AND THAT WASN'T

THE ONLY THREAT.

THEY CAME WITH A WITCH

DOCTOR.

Lee: HER FINAL

OPTIONS.

YOU SEE IF IT WORKS ARE

OR YOU LAY HERE AND DIE.

Lee: AS OUR WEEK OF

PRAYER CONTINUES ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WELL, IT'S ONE OF THE MOST

FAMOUS SPORTING EVENTS IN

THE NATION.

IT IS CALLED THE KENTUCKY

DERBY.

BUT THAT DERBY ALSO ATTRACTS

EVIL PEOPLE, HUMAN

TRAFFICKERS.

Terry: CRIMINALS SHOW

UP AT EVENTS LIKE THE DERBY

SO THEY CAN DEAL IN

PROSTITUTION AND SEX

TRAFFICKING.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE KENTUCKY

DERBY IS IS KNOWN AS THE

GREATEST TWO MINUTES IN

SPORTS.

FOR MANY, IT INVOKES THE

SOUNDS OF HOOF BEATS TO MY

OWN HOME.

TO HUMAN TRAFFICKERS, THE

CITY AND THE HORSE RACE ARE

SIMPLY AVENUES FOR

EXPLOITATION.

WE HAVE HIGH RATES.

WE HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM.

THE HANDLERS LOOK AT IT

AS A WAY OF MAKING FAST

MONEY.

THEY CAN DOUBLE OR TRIPLE

WHAT THEY NORMALLY MAKE.

Reporter: LOUISVILLE

POLICE AND VICTIMS RIGHTS

ESTIMATE POSTINGS ON THESE

SITES FOR LOUISVILLE HAVE

TRIPLED THIS WEEK, LEADING

UP TO THE KENTUCKY DERBY.

WOMEN AND WHAT WE BELIEVE

TO BE OUR CHILDREN, ARE

ADVERTISED AT PHILLIES AND

MUSTANGS.

Reporter: THE HUMAN

TRAFFICKING RINGS ARE SET UP

IN HOTELS IN EVERY PART OF

THE KENTUCKY, INDIANA AREA,

SURROUNDING LOUISVILLE.

ABOUT 10% OF THE HUNDREDS OF

PROSTITUTES IN LOUISVILLE

THIS WEEK ARE BEING FORCED

OR COERCED.

AFTER EACH PROSTITUTION

ARRESTS, POLICE LOOK FOR

SIGNS OF TRAFFICKING.

THEN WE CHANGE COURSE AND

TREAT THEM AS A VICTIM AND

NOT A CRIMINAL.

Reporter: TERESA FLOREZ

IS A SURVIVOR OF HUMAN

TRAFFICKING.

SHE FOUNDED THE ORGANIZATION

CALLED "TRAFFIC FREE."

AND SHE FOUNDED "SOAP,"

WHICH STANDS FOR SAVE OUR

ADOLESCENTS FROM

PROSTITUTION.

THE SOAP IS WRAPPED WITH A

RED BAND, THAT GIVES THE

NATIONAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING

HOT LINE NUMBER, AND ASKS

QUESTIONS LIKE: ARE YOU

BEING FORCED TO DO ANYTHING

YOU DO NOT WANT TO DO.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Pat: ISN'T THAT A

SHAME.

A WONDERFUL EVENT.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO A

DERBY?

Terry: I HAVE NEVER

BEEN TO THE DERBY.

I KNOW EVENTS LIKE THIS DRAW

THIS TYPE OF THING,.

Pat: YOU LOOK AT THE

HORSES RUNNING.

IT IS HORSES.

Terry: AND THEN THERE

IS THE UNDER-BELLY OF IT,

WHICH IS THIS.

Pat: HORSES DON'T HAVE

THINGS UNDER THEIR BELLY.

Terry: APPARENTLY THEY

DO AT THE KENTUCKY DERBY.

Pat: I WENT AS A GUEST

OF THE FORMER GOVERNOR, AND

HE HAD A TABLE RIGHT AT THE

FINISH LINE.

THERE WAS A HORSE NAMED

SWALE THAT I KNEW WAS

GOING TO WIN.

BUT I LOOKED AT SOMEONE

ELSE, AND HE WAS BETTING ON

ANOTHER HORSE, AND I THOUGHT

MAYBE HE KNOWS MORE THAN I

DO.

AND PEOPLE AT THE TABLE SAID

WHO IS GOING TO WIN, AND I

SAID, IT LOOKS LIKE SO AND

SO, BUT I KNEW IT WAS GOING

TO BE SWALE, AND SWALE ONE.

TWO RACES BEFORE THE

PRELIMINARIES, MY WIFE

PICKED TWO WINNERS.

Terry: REALLY?

Pat: AND THESE MEN FROM

NEW YORK SAID, HOW DID YOU

DO IT?

AND SHE SAID, WELL, I LIKED

HIS TAIL.

Terry: NOT A HORSE RACE

PERSON.

Pat: WELL, I MEAN, THEY

WON.

SHE KNEW.

HEY, SPEAKING OF WINNING,

CAN I DO A LITTLE BRAGGING?

Terry: CERTAINLY.

Pat: I HAVE A

GRANDSON -- HE'S GORDON'S

SON.

Terry: PATRICK.

Pat: PATRICK HAS TURNED

INTO A LITTLE STUD, TALK

ABOUT HORSES.

HE IS MR. MUSCLES.

Terry: HE IS A

WRESTLER, ISN'T HE?

Pat: HE IS A WRESTLER,

BUT HE JUST SHATTERED THE

SCHOOL RECORD WITH THE DISCUS.

Terry: REALLY?

Pat: AND HE IS JUST

WARMING UP.

Pat: I KNOW GORDON IS

PROUD OF HIM.

HE IS ESTATIC.

Terry: HE IS A GREAT

ATHLETE, FOOTBALL AND

EVERYTHING.

Pat: HE IS SO

DEDICATED.

I WAS IN THE GYM LIFTING

WEIGHTS FOR HIM, AND HE WAS

GRANDDADDY, THESE AREN'T

ENOUGH.

Terry: I WANT MORE.

Pat: SHATTERED THE

SCHOOL RECORD.

Terry: CONGRATULATIONS

TO HIM.

THAT'S VERY GOOD.

Pat: HE HAS A GREAT

FUTURE.

HE IS ALSO GOOD AT

ACADEMIC.

THEY'RE NOT INTO HORSES.

I'M INTO HORSES, AND THEY'RE

INTO WRESTLING.

I DID WRESTLING.

Terry: SO HE COMES BY

IT ALL NATURALLY.

Pat: I WASN'T VERY

GOOD.

NO.

HE GOT IT FROM HIS MOTHER'S

FATHER, WHO IS A COACH AND

PRETTY GOOD AT IT.

ISN'T THAT NICE?

Terry: THAT'S

WONDERFUL.

CONGRATULATIONS, GRANDPA.

Pat: A PROUD

GRANDFATHER.

Terry: A PROUD

GRANDFATHER.

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

THE BATTLE IS BREWING IN THE

MILITARY.

WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT YOUR

FAITH?

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

HERE IS LEE.

Lee: PAT, THE PENTAGON

IS SAYING IT COULD PROSECUTE

SOMEONE IN THE MILITARY FOR

SHARING THEIR RELIGIOUS

FAITH.

TOP MILITARY OFFICIALS MET

WITH A GROUP CALLED THE

MILITARY RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

FOUNDATION LAST WEEK.

MIKEY WEINSTEIN IS PRESIDENT

OF THAT GROUP.

RETIRED ARMY GENERAL JERRY

BOYKIN IS EXECUTIVE VICE

PRESIDENT OF THE FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL AND TOLD

CBN NEWS THAT THE MOVE WILL

BE TERRIBLE FOR THE

MILITARY.

IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT

OFFICERS OR COMMANDERING

SHARING THEIR FAITH.

IT IS ABOUT EVERY INDIVIDUAL

SOLDIER, SAILOR, AIRMAN, OR

MARINE BEING ABLE TO

EXERCISE THEIR FAITH.

THE FIRST AMENDMENT TALKS

ABOUT THE FREE EXERCISE

THEREOF, SPEAKING OF OUR

FAITH.

THIS WILL DESTROY OUR

MILITARY BECAUSE MOM AND DAD

OUT IN CENTRAL AMERICA --

YOU KNOW, THE CENTRAL PART

OF THE UNITED STATES -- ARE

NOT GOING TO WANT JOHNNIE OR

JANE TO JOIN THE MILITARY,

KNOWING THEY WILL NOT BE

ABLE TO EXERCISE THEIR FAITH

AT THE SAME TIME THEY ARE

PROTECTING THOSE

CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TO DO

SO.

Lee: SOME CHRISTIANS

SAY WEINSTEIN IS SIMPLY AN

ANTICHRISTIAN ATHEIST, AND

THE PENTAGON SHOULDN'T BE BE

DISCUSSING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

WITH HIM.

THAT IS THE IRONY OF THIS,

WHEN YOU'RE SWORN IN TO THE

MILITARY, YOU'RE SWORN TO

UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION, AND

YET THE CONSTITUTION IS NOT

UP HOLDING THESE SOLDIERS.

Pat: WE HAVE CHAPLAINS

IN THE NAVY, AND WE USED TO

HAVE ON THE SHIPS -- QUOTE,

"THE SMOKING LIGHT" WOULD BE

OUT, AND YOU COULDN'T SMOKE

DURING THE DIVINE SERVICES.

THERE WAS A PERIOD OF QUIET

ON THE SHIPS WHERE THERE WAS

A RELIGIOUS SERVICE.

THIS WIN WINESTEIN SOUNDS

LIKE AN ATHEIST.

I DON'T THINK THIS GUY

DESERVES ANYTHING.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF PEOPLE

IN HIGH-RANKING POSITIONS IN

THE ARMY AND IN THE ARMED

FORCES WHO ARE VERY

DEDICATED CHRISTIANS.

AND I DON'T THINK THEY'RE

GOING TO LET SOMETHING LIKE

THIS STAND.

I MEAN, PEOPLE HAVE TO BE

ABLE TO SHARE THEIR FAITH.

I MEAN, A COUPLE OF GUYS GO

OUT ON LEAVE AND THEY TALK

ABOUT JESUS, AND THEY'RE

GOING TO GET

COURT-MARTIALED?

THAT'S ABSURD.

Lee: THE SURVIVING

SUSPECT IN THE BOSTON

MARATHON BOMBINGS BRAGGED HE

KNEW HOW TO BUILD A BOMB

JUST A MONTH BEFORE THE

DEADLY ATTACKS.

NOW THREE OF DZHOKHAR

TSARNAEV'S FRIENDS ARE BEING

CHARGED.

THEY'RE ACCUSED OF REMOVING

EVIDENCE, LYING TO

INVESTIGATORS, AND

OBSTRUCTING MESSAGES.

Reporter: IT IS A

COVERUP THAT STARTED WITH A

TEXT MESSAGE.

TWO 19 YEAR OLDS RECOGNIZED

THEIR COLLEGE FRIEND

DZHOKHAR TSARNAEV FROM

SURVEILLANCE PHOTOS ON

TELEVISION.

ONE OF THE TEENS TEXTED HIM

TO ASK IF HE WAS THE

BOMBER.

HIS RESPONSE, "L.O.L.,"

LAUGHING OUT LOUD.

HE TEXTED, COME TO MY ROOM

AND TAKE WHATEVER YOU WANT.

THE TWO FRIENDS TOOK A

BACKPACK, AND HALLOWED OUT

FIREWORKS AND A COMPUTER.

THEY THREW THEM IN A

DUMPSTER BEHIND THE

APARTMENT.

THEIR LAWYERS DENIED THEY

DID ANYTHING WRONG.

THEY DID NOT

INTENTIONALLY OR KNOWINGLY

DESTROY EVIDENCE.

HE HAS COOPERATED FULLY

WITH THE AUTHORITIES AND

LOOKED FORWARD TO THE TRUTH

COMING UP.

Reporter: THE TWO YOUNG

MEN FROM KAZAKHSTAN ARE IN

THE UNITED STATES ON STUDENT

VISAS.

BUT ONE'S WAS TERMINATED IN

JANUARY.

DESPITE NOT HAVING A VALID

STUDENT VISA, HE WAS STILL

ALLOWED TO RE-ENTER THE

U.S.

THE TWO ARE NOT ACCUSED OF

ACTUALLY BEING INVOLVED IN

THE ATTACK.

BUT COURT PAPERS SHOW ONE

SUSPECT TOLD INVESTIGATORS

TSARNAEV BRAGGED ABOUT

KNOWING HOW TO MAKE A BOMB

NEARLY A MONTH BEFORE THE

BOSTON ATTACKS.

THE THIRD PERSON ARRESTED,

ROBEL PHILIPOS WAS A HIGH

SCHOOL FRIEND OF DZHOKHAR

TSARNAEV.

HE FACES FIVE YEARS IN

PRISON IF CONVICTED, AND A

$250,000 FINE.

Lee: A KOREAN-AMERICAN

HAS BEEN SENTENCED TO 15

YEARS HARD LABOR IN A NORTH

KOREAN PRISON.

KENNETH BAE OF WASHINGTON

STATE WAS ARRESTED NEAR THE

BORDER OF CHINA AND RUSSIA.

HE IS ACCUSED OF HOSTILE

ACTS AGAINST THE STATE.

HE IS THE SIXTH AMERICAN

HELD THERE SINCE 2009.

FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES SAY

HE IS A DEVOUT CHRISTIAN AND

FREQUENTLY TRAVELLED THERE

TO FOOD ORPHANS.

ONE LEADING ANALYST SAYS

THEY'RE USING BAE AS A PAWN

TO GET A HIGH-PROFILE

AMERICAN OFFICIAL TO VISIT

THE COUNTRY AND BUILD UP THE

IMAGE OF NORTHERN KOREAN

LEADER KIM JONG UN.

THE CITY THAT BROUGHT YOU

BANS ON LARGE SUGARY DRINKS

AND TRANS-FATS IS NOW THE

HOME OF THE FIRST PUBLIC

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WITH AN

ALL VEGETARIAN CAFETERIA.

IT IS TAKING HEALTHIER

SCHOOL LUNCHES TO AN

ENTIRELY NEW LEVEL.

BUT HOW DO THE KIDS FEEL

ABOUT TOFU WRAPS AND

VEGETARIAN CHILI?

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: YOU'VE

PROBABLY HEARD ABOUT MICHAEL

BLOOMBERG'S SODA CRACKDOWN

IN THE CITY.

PEOPLE SHOULD BE ALLOWED

TO EAT AND DRINK WHAT THEY

WANT TO DRING.

I THINK IT GOES BEYOND

WHAT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD

DO.

Reporter: BUT NOW A

LUNCH MEN NEW FO -- MENU

FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS.

IT ALL INVOLVES HEALTHING

EATING.

Reporter: PUBLIC SCHOOL

244 HAS BEEN EXPERIMENTING

WITH ALL VEGGIE MEANS SINCE

EARLIER THIS WEEK.

NOW IT IS FIVE DAYS A WEEK.

THIS MENU AT THIS SCHOOL

IS IN THE VANGUARD OF ONE OF

THE OPTIONS WE WANT TO OFFER

KIDS.

Reporter: PS244 HAS

MORE THAN 200 KIDS.

BEFORE THEY BEGIN THE FULL

VEGETARIAN MENU, STUDENTS

GRAPH STATED TOWARDS

VEGETARIAN ITEMS.

IT IS MORE NUTRITIOUS.

IT IS VERY HEALTHY AND

MAKES YOUR BODY STRONG.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

PETA COULDN'T BE MORE

PLEASED.

ONE EMPLOYEE

STATING, QUOTE,"WE THINK

THIS IS A REALLY EXCITING

DEVELOPMENT."

BUT WHEN A REPORTER ASKED

THE KIDS IF THEY LIKED THE

NEW LUNCHES, A LESS THAN

ENTHUSIASTIC RESPONSE, AND

CRITICS WORRY: CHILDREN WHO

EAT AN ALL VEGETARIAN DIET

MAY NOT GET THE PROTEIN THEY

NEED.

SOME HEALTH FOOD ADVOCATES

SAY THEY'RE NOT WORRIED.

MOST PEOPLE IN THIS

COUNTRY GET TWO TO THREE

TIMES MORE THAN THEY NEED.

PLANT-BASED PROTEINS ARE

ACTUALLY VERY HEALTHY.

THEY HAVE NO CHOLESTEROL,

AND THEY'RE LOW IN TOTAL FAT

AND SATURATED FAT AND

THEY'RE HIGH IN FIBRE.

Lee: PS244 IN NEW YORK

CITY IS A ZONED NEIGHBORHOOD

SCHOOL, SO STUDENTS WHO

PREFER MEAT ARE NOT ABLE TO

TRANSFER OUT, PAT.

AND CHILDREN WHO PREFER TO

EAT VEGETARIAN CANNOT

TRANSFER IN.

Pat: YOU KNOW, IT WAS

ONCE SAID THAT PROHIBITION

WAS THE REWARD OF THE

HYPOCRITES.

AND I JUST WONDER IF MAYOR

BLOOMBERG WOULD LIKE TO BE

FORCED TO EAT TOFU DAY AFTER

DAY AFTER DAY TO SEE HOW HE

LIKES IT.

ACTUALLY, I COMMEND THAT

SCHOOL.

IT IS GOOD STUFF THEY'RE

DOING, BUT THE KIDS DO NEED

PROTEIN.

AND IT NEEDS TO COME IN THE

FORM OF COTTAGE CHEESE OR

SOMETHING, OR SOME FISH.

BUT THAT ALL VEGETARIAN AT

LEAST FOR ONE MEAL A DAY IS

VERY GOOD.

YOU KNOW, KIDS, IF YOU LEAVE

THEM ALONE, LITTLE BABIES

WILL PICK HEALTHY FOOD.

BUT WE INSIST ON ADDING

SUGAR TO THINGS.

WE INSIST ON ADDING SALT TO

THEM, AND THEN WE TRAIN

THEIR PAL LATE PALLETS SO

THEY DON'T LIKE GOOD,

HEALTHY FOOD.

MY CHILDREN REBELLED AGAINST

MY BLOOMBERG NANNY --

Terry: SOYBEANS?

Pat: SOYBEANS -- THE

SOYBEANS WERE GOOD FOR THEM,

BUT IT WAS THE WHOLE WHEAT

BREAD.

THEIR FRIENDS WERE EATING

THIS WHITE BREAD, WHICH IS

NOTHING WORSE THAN GLUE.

IT'S PASTE.

BUT THEY WOULD TRADE

SANDWICHES.

WE WOULD GIVE THEM THESE

HEALTHY SANDWICHES.

FINALLY MY OLDEST SON MET A

GIRL, A LOVELY, LOVELY GIRL,

AND SHE WAS AMAZED TO FIND A

BOY WHO HAD BEEN MADE TO EAT

WHOLE WHEAT SANDWICHES,

BECAUSE SHE HAD TO.

AND SO THEY GOT MARRIED AND

HAD FIVE CHILDREN.

Terry: SO YOU AND

BLOOMBERG HAD A LOT IN

COMMON THEN.

YOU BOTH SET DOWN THE LAW.

Pat: WELL, IN A WAY OF

SPEAKING.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: SORRY.

I JUST COULDN'T RESIST.

Pat: MINE IS VOLUNTARY,

BECAUSE IF IT IS KIDS,

THAT'S ALL THEY GET.

BUT THEY ALL GREW UP

RELATIVELY HEALTHY AND

HAPPY.

AND WE HAVE 14 BEAUTIFUL

GRANDCHILDREN TO SHOW FOR

ALL OF THAT HEALTHNESS.

Terry: AND THEY'RE

STILL EATING WHOLE WHEAT.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW IF

THEY ARE.

Terry: COMING UP, A

FLESH-EATING BACTERIA THAT

KILLS SEVEN OUT OF 10 PEOPLE

WITHIN 24 HOURS.

WATCH HOW THIS WOMAN BATTLED

IT AND LIVED TO TELL ABOUT

IT.

BUT, FIRST, MEET A MAN FROM

THE SAME RUSSIAN CITY AS THE

BOSTON BOMBERS.

AND SEE HOW HE IS BRINGING

HOPE, RECONCILIATION AND

FORGIVENESS TO THE PEOPLE OF

THIS WAR-TORN NATION.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THERE

WAS AN EMPIRE, AND IT WAS

CALLED THE SOVIET UNION.

AND IT WAS A CONGLOMERATION

OF ALL KINDS OF STATES THAT

HAD BEEN PUT TOGETHER BY THE

COMMUNISTS, AND WE CALLED IT

COMMUNIST RUSSIA.

WELL, THERE WAS A BREAKUP,

AND IT BECAME NOW THE CENTER

OF DEMOCRATIC NATIONS.

AND A CONFEDERATION.

BUT YOUR HEAD BEGINS TO BLUR

WHEN YOU THINK OF KAZAKHSTAN

, UZBEKISTAN, DAGESTAN,

CHECHNYA.

Terry: DAGESTAN I HAD

NEVER HEARD OF BEFORE.

THE OTHERS I HAD AT LEAST

HEARD OF, BUT THIS IS NEW TO

ME.

Pat: TODAY YOU'RE GOING

TO LEARN THE SORTED TRUTH.

BUT THEY'RE ALL TOGETHER,

AND THE CAUCUS REGION WAS

JUST A HOTBED OF ISLAM.

THEY'RE ISLAMIC.

WHEREAS THE ESSENTIALLY

RUSSIAN, ALTHOUGH IT TURNED

COMMUNIST, WAS RUSSIAN

ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN.

ANYHOW, BEFORE THE BOMBINGS

TOOK PLACE IN BOSTON, MANY

AMERICANS HAD NEVER EVEN

HEARD OF THESE RUSSIAN

PROVINCES.

NOW WE KNOW THE MUSLIM

SUSPECTS CAME FROM JUST THAT

AREA.

MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN FIGHTING A

BRUTAL REBELLION THERE SINCE

THE LATE '90s.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAVE

BEEN KILLED.

BUT ONE MAN IS ON A MISSION

TO BRING PEACE AND THE

GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST TO

THIS WAR-TORN REGION.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: UNITED TURCON

IS NOT PROUD OF THIS PAST,

AND HE GETS UNCOMFORTABLE

TALKING ABOUT IT.

I LEFT HOME WHEN I WAS

YOU 13 YEARS OLD AND GOT

ENTANGLED WITH THE WRONG

CROWD.

I DID A LOT OF THINGS I'M

ASHAMED OF.

Reporter: HE IS FROM

THE SMALL RUSSIAN CITY OF

COSNODARD.

HIS LIFE INCLUDES DRUGS,

ARMED ROBBERY, PROSTITUTION,

HIRED ASSASSIN, MONEY

LAUNDERING, GUN SMUGGLING,

YOU NAME IT, TURCON DID IT

ALL AND THEN SOME.

IT IS AS IF I BECAME THE

DEVIL'S SLAVE.

I REMEMBER MAKING A PACT

WITH SATAN TO SERVE HIM.

Reporter: AND HIS DEEDS

EVENTUALLY CAUGHT UP WITH

HIM.

I WAS ARRESTED AND

SENTENCED TO 20 YEARS IN

PRISON.

Reporter: THAT'S THE

PAST.

AND TO WITNESS THE POWER OF

A LIFE TRANSFORMED BY GOD,

LOOK NO FURTHER THAN

TURCON.

THE YEAR WAS 1987, AND THE

FORMER SOVIET UNION PLACED

HUGE POLITICAL CHANGES, AND

HE SAT IN PRISON.

I HAD A BAD REPUTATION,

SOMEONE WHO HAD SPECIAL

CULT-LIKE POWERS.

PROPOSITION NERPRISONERS

WERE EVEN AFRAID OF ME.

Reporter: ONE DAY SOME

VISITORS CAME TO SHARE THE

GOSPEL MESSAGE.

BUT IT TWO FOUR YEARS FOR IT

TO SINK IN.

IN 1991, I REALIZED ITS

TRUE MEANING.

I DROPPED TO MY KNEES IN THE

PRISON CELL AND TOLD GOD I

WAS A SINNER.

FROM THAT MOMENT I WENT FROM

SERVING SATAN TO A SERVANT

OF JESUS.

Reporter: THE PRISON

MIRACULOUSLY SHORTENED HIS

SENTENCE BY FIVE YEARS, AND

HE WAS RELEASED IN 1996.

THE TODAY AFTER HE WALKED

OUT OF PRISON, HE WALKED

INTO A BIBLE TRAINING

SEMINAR, ORGANIZED BY

RUSSIAN MINISTRIES, WHICH

FOCUSES ON BRINGING THE

GOSPEL TO THE FORME FORMER

SOVIET UNION.

THEY PUT IN ME A

MISSIONARY HEART TO TRAIN

CHURCHES AND TRAIN THE NEXT

GENERATION OF LEADERS IN MY

COUNTRY.

Reporter: HE WAS

BAPTIZED SHORTLY

THEREAFTER.

NOW FOR MORE THAN 10 YEARS,

TURCON HAS BEEN LEADING A

CHURCH IN THE NORTHERN

CAUCUSES REGION.

I AM CONVINCED IT IS THE

LOVE OF CHRIST CAN TURN THIS

REGION AROUND.

Reporter: ISLAMIC

RADICALS HAVE WAGED A BLOODY

INSURGENCY FOR TWO YEARS.

IN THAT TIME, WARS HAVE

KILLED THOUSANDS AND

DISPLACED MANY MORE.

TURCON'S GOAL: REACH THIS

WAR-TORN REGION WITH

MESSAGES OF RECONCILIATION

AND FORGIVENESS.

ONE WAY IS TO REACH YOUNG

CHILDREN.

HE ORGANIZES DOZENS OF YOUTH

CAMPS EACH YEAR WITH LOCAL

CONGREGATIONS.

EVA IS A MEMBER OF HIS

CHURCH AND HELPS WITH THE

CAMPS.

THESE KIDS HAVE TO KNOW

THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE TO A

LIFE OF VIOLENCE.

WE SPEND TIME PLAYING GAMES

WITH THEM AND IT GIVES US AN

OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE THE

GOSPEL.

Reporter: MANY PARENTS

SAY THE CAMPS ARE GOD-SENT.

I LOVE IT WHEN THEY TALK

ABOUT PEACE AND GETTING

ALONG WITH OTHER ETHNIC AND

RELIGIOUS GROUPS.

Reporter: IN ONE CITY,

THE LOCAL COMMUNIST PARTY

TOOK OUT FULL-PAGE NEWSPAPER

ADS PROMOTING THE YOUTH

CAMPS.

YOU MAY BE SURPRISED, BUT

THERE ARE MANY CHRISTIANS IN

THE COMMUNIST PARTY.

Reporter: WHEN HE IS

NOT COORDINATING CAMPS OR

PREACHING, HE TRAINS YOUTH

TO BECOME LOCAL LEADERS

HERE.

WORKING IN THE NORTHERN

CAUCUSES IS NOT WITHOUT ITS

HARDSHIPS.

IT INCLUDES CHECHNYA, WHERE

MUSLIM MILITARY AND RUSSIAN

FORCES HAVE BATTLED BACK AND

FORTH TO CONTROL THE

PROVINCE.

THERE IS RELATIVE PEACE NOW,

BUT ISLAM'S INFLUENCE IS

GROWING.

WITH THE HELP OF THE RUSSIAN

GOVERNMENT AND SEVERAL

MUSLIM COUNTRIES, INCLUDING

SAUDI ARABIA, CHECHNYA HAS

TODAY ERECTED WHAT COULD BE

THE LARGEST MOSQUE IN

EUROPE.

FOR EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS

LIVING IN THIS PROVINCE,

LIFE FOR THEM CANNOT ONLY BE

CHALLENGING, BUT POTENTIALLY

DANGEROUS.

RAZNAM HAS FIRSTHAND

EXPERIENCE.

I HAVE BEEN REPEATEDLY

WARNED BY MUSLIM RADICALS

AND RUSSIAN AUTHORITIES TO

STOP TEACHING, BUT I WILL

NOT.

I AM A SIMPLE MAN WHO'S LIFE

WAS TOUCHED BY CHRIST.

I HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO

TELL OTHERS ABOUT HIM NO

MATTER THE COST.

Reporter: IT IS THE

PRICE HE AND OTHERS ARE

WILLING TO PAY TO BRING

LASTING PEACE.

GOD CHANGED MY LIFE THAT

DAY IN PRISON FOR A REASON,

AND THIS IS IT, TO BRING

HOPE AND CHRIST TO THIS

REGION.

Reporter: GEORGE

THOMAS, CHECHNYA.

Pat: WHERE GRACE

ABOUNDS, MUCH MORE ABOUNDS.

THAT'S WHAT IS HAPPENING

THERE.

IN KAZAKHSTAN, OUR PROGRAM,

"THE 700 CLUB," IS NUMBER

SEVEN OR EIGHT IN

POPULARITY.

IT IS WIDELY VIEWED BY THE

PEOPLE.

WE BROUGHT THE FLYING

HOSPITAL INTO THE AMATI, I

BELIEVE IT WAS, THE CAPITAL

OF KAZAKHSTAN.

OH, THEY HAD SUCH BIG

CELEBRATIONS, THE FACT THAT

WE WERE THERE, THE

PRESIDENT'S WIFE PUT ON A

BIG FESTIVAL -- IT WAS A

TEA.

Terry: A RECEPTION.

Pat: IT WAS A

RECEPTION.

IT WAS SO LAVISH, AND I'M

THINKING OF ALL OF THE FOOD

THEY PUT OUT.

THEY WERE SO GRACIOUS TO US

AND OUR STAFF.

THEY HAD "OPERATION

BLESSING" T-SHIRTS, AND THEY

WALKED THROUGH THE MARKET,

AND PEOPLE WERE BRINGING

THEM VEGETABLES AND FRUIT AS

GIFTS OF LOVE.

Terry: A THANK YOU.

Pat: THANK YOU

EXPRESSIONS.

I MEAN, IT IS JUST BEAUTIFUL

WHAT GOD IS IS DOING IN THAT

AREA.

BUT KAZAKHSTAN IS A LITTLE

DIFFERENT FROM SOME OF THE

OTHER MORE RADICAL PLACES,

LIKE CHECHNYA.

BUT WHEREVER -- WHEREVER THE

GOSPEL WILL GO, AND THE

PEACE OF GOD WILL TOUCH

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

SO PRAY FOR RUSSIA.

WE'VE HAD MILLIONS AND

MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE WHO HAVE ACCEPTED THE

LORD.

SOMETHING IN THE

NEIGHBORHOOD OF 14 MILLION

LETTERS WE'VE RECEIVED IN

OUR OFFICES IN KIEV AND THE

UKRAINE.

Terry: UP NEXT, A NURSE

IN A FIGHT FOR HER LIFE.

IF YOU LOOKED AT THE

WOUNDS THAT I HAD FROM MY

GROIN DOWN TO MY THIGH, YOU

WOULDN'T EVEN BELIEVE THAT I

WAS GOING TO SURVIVE.

EITHER I WAS GOING TO GET

AMPUTATED, THEY WERE GOING

TO TAKE MY LEGS, OR

SOMETHING.

Terry: SEE THE

TREATMENT THAT SAVED THIS

WOMAN FROM BEING EATEN

ALIVE.

Terry: EVERY DAY THIS

WEEK OUR CBN STAFF HAS BEEN

COMING TOGETHER AT NOON TO

PRAY FOR THE NEEDS OF YOU,

OUR PARTNERS AND VIEWERS.

SO FAR WE HAVE RECEIVED

85,678 PRAYER REQUESTS.

YESTERDAY GORDON LED OUR

PRAYER TIME.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK.

Gordon: THERE IS A

MENTAL FAITH WHERE WE SAY

THE RIGHT THING BECAUSE

WE'RE TAUGHT TO SAY THE

RIGHT THIN THING, BUT THEN

THERE IS THAT FAITH WHERE

YOU KNOW AND YOU KNOW.

AND THAT'S THAT GUT FAITH.

IT IS THE GUT FAITH THAT

GETS THE ANSWER.

THE KNOWING AND THE KNOWER.

THE EARTH SAYS SEEING IS

BELIEVING.

THE BIBLE SAYS BELIEVING IS

SEEING.

LET'S HOLD THESE BEFORE THE

LORD.

LORD GOD, WE JUST JOIN IN

WITH THESE PRAYERS.

MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR

PEOPLE.

SUPPLY ALL THEIR NEED,

ACCORDING TO YOUR RICHES AND

GLORY.

LORD, WE'VE NEVER SEEN THE

RIGHTEOUS GO HUNGRY BECAUSE

YOU PROVIDE THEIR DAILY

BREAD.

AND TOGETHER WE TOUCH THESE

NEEDS AND THIS LACK AND WE

SAY BE DONE NOW, FOR WE ASK

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN AND AMEN.

Terry: WELL, EACH DAY

WE'RE GATHERING TO PRAY FOR

YOU AND WITH YOU.

YOU CAN WATCH OUR CHAPEL

SERVICES IF YOU'D LIKE, AND

PRAY WITH US, OR GO TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBN.COM.

THAT'S AT NOON EASTERN TIME,

AND IT'S HAPPENING ALL WEEK

LONG.

DON'T FORGET YOU CAN STILL

SEND IN YOUR PRAYER

REQUESTS.

IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, YOU'RE RECEIVING

THIS MAILING, AND INSIDE IS

THIS LITTLE CARD WHICH WE

WOULD LIKE YOU TO SEND BACK

TO US WITH YOUR PRAY

REQUEST.

IF YOU HAVEN'T RECEIVED

THIS, YOU CAN STILL SEND US

YOUR PRAYERS.

CALL US, 1-800-759-0700.

AND WE'LL INCLUDE YOU IN OUR

PRAYER TIME THIS WEEK.

Pat: AND WE'RE GOING TO

HAVE A SPECIAL PRAYER TIME

THIS WEEK, SO DON'T GO

AWAY.

BUT I WANT TO TELL YOU A

STORY THAT WILL CURL YOUR

HAIR, FLESH-EATING

BACTERIA.

IT SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING OUT

OF THE SCI-FI CHANNEL, BUT

FOR JACKIE COMESHIA, IT WAS

ALL TOO REAL.

JACKIE WAS LITERALLY BEING

EATEN ALIVE, UNTIL SHE HEARD

A STILL VOICE, SMALL VOICE,

THAT SAVED HER LIFE.

WATCH THIS.

I WAS HOMELESS.

WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE YOUR

HOME, YOU'RE POWERLESS.

YOU'RE IN CONTROL OF

ANYTHING ANYMORE.

IT WAS A REAL WAR.

Reporter: JACKIE

IMMIGRATED TO THE U.S. FROM

AFRICA TO PURSUE THE

AMERICAN DREAM.

BUT WITH ALL OF HER SUCCESS,

SHE NEVER EXPECTED HER LIFE

WOULD END IN A MATTER OF

HOURS FROM A VIRALENT

FLESH-EATING BACTERIA.

SEVEN OUT OF 10 PEOPLE

WHO CONTRACT THIS BACTERIA

DIE WITHIN 24 HOURS.

Reporter: HER HEALTH

PROBLEMS STEMMED FROM WEIGHT

ISSUES THAT RAN IN HER WHOLE

FAMILY.

MY WHOLE LIFE I'VE BEEN

OVERWEIGHT.

BY THE TIME I TURNED 36, I I

WAS WEIGHING 276 POUNDS, AND

I WAS JUST 5' 6."

I DID EVERY PROGRAM OUT

THERE AND IT DIDN'T WORK FOR

ME.

Reporter: JACKIE

STUDIED NURSING IN AMERICA,

AND HER DREAMS BECAME HER

REALITY.

I STARTED MAKING A LOT OF

MONEY, BIG HOUSE, DESIGNER

CLOTHES.

I WAS HAPPY.

I WAS IN CONTROL OF MY

LIFE.

Reporter: SHE MARRIED

HENRY AND STARTED GOING TO

CHURCH WITH HIM.

BUT HER WEIGHT WAS

INTERFERING WITH HER HEALTH

AND HER CAREER.

I COULDN'T CLI CLIMB

STAIRS, I COULDN'T WALK.

I HAD SLEEP APNEA.

I KNEW I HAD TO DO

SOMETHING.

Reporter: JACKIE'S

DOCTOR REFERRED HER TO A

WORLREKNOWED GASTRIC

BYPASS SPECIALIST.

BUT HENRY WAS NOT SURE THIS

WAS THE BEST SOLUTION.

HENRY WAS ABSOLUTELY

AGAINST THE FACT I SHOULD DO

THE SURGERY.

I SAID THAT'S YOUR

CHOICE, BUT THAT DOESN'T

MEAN I SHOULDN'T SUPPORT

HER.

Reporter: SHE FLEW TO

BRAZIL AND UNDERWENT THE

SURGERY.

SHORTLY AFTER, HER BODY

REJECTED THE CHANGES.

I STARTED HAVING SIDE

EFFECTS OF THAT SURGERY.

SEVERE NAUSEA AND VOMITING.

THE NEXT YEAR, I WAS IN AND

OUT OF THE HOSPITAL ABOUT

NINE TIMES.

MY HEALTH WAS

DETERIORATING.

Reporter: AS WAS HER

AMERICAN DREAM.

I COULDN'T WORK FOR

SOMETIME, AND THE CAR GOT

REPOSSESSED.

WE LOST OUR HOME AND WE HAD

TO LOOK FOR A SMALLER

PLACE.

Reporter: JACKIE

DROPPED TO AN ASTONISHING

87 POUNDS AND WAS ONCE AGAIN

HOSPITALIZED.

I BECAME CRITICAL FROM

DEHYDRATION, AND THE DOCTOR

DECIDED HE WOULD DO A

REVISION OF THAT SURGERY TO

GET ME BACK TO HEALTH.

Reporter: BUT BEFORE

SHE COULD HAVE THAT

OPERATION, SHE WAS

TRANSFERRED TOAN EMERGENCY

MEDICAL CENTER.

WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE

HOSPITAL, I DIDN'T EVEN

REALIZE WHERE I WAS.

I SAW HENRY BY MY SIDE.

THE DOCTORS HAD TOLD HENRY,

WE'RE NOT SURE IF YOUR WIFE

WILL MAKE IT.

SHE HAS CONTRACTED THIS

FLESH-EATING BACTERIA.

Reporter: THE BACTERIA

HAD ALREADY EATEN 36% OF

JACKIE'S FLESH, AND HER

ORGANS WERE ON THE VIRGE OF

FAILING.

HENRY IMMEDIATELY CALLED HER

FRIENDS AND "THE 700 CLUB"

TO PRAY FOR JACKIE.

HENRY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A

MAN OF FAITH.

THERE WAS NO PLACE WE

DIDN'T TOUCH.

Reporter: AS THE

PRAYERS POURED IN, JACKIE

QUICKLY REALIZED SHE WAS

DEALING WITH MORE THAN A

PHYSICAL BATTLE.

I LAID IN BED, ON THE

SCREEN, RIGHT ABOVE ME, I

WENT INTO THIS REM, AND I

STARTED SEEING THINGS AS IF

THEY WERE REAL.

I DID SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE

THAT I RECOGNIZED FROM BACK

IN AFRICA.

AND THEY CAME WITH A WITCH

DOCTOR.

AND THE WITCH DOCTOR WAS

DRESSED ALL IN BLACK.

Reporter: THEY

THREATENED TO KILL JACKIE

WITH A DEVICE THEY HAD WITH

THEM.

THEY WOULD PUMP THE

MACHINES, AND WHEN THEY

PUMPED THE MACHINE, I COULD

FEEL THE PAIN IN DIFFERENT

PORTIONS IN MY BODY.

IT WENT ON AND ON AND ON.

IT WAS VERY TORMENTING.

Reporter: FOR THREE

DAYS, THE DEMONIC VISITORS

TORMENTED JACKIE, AND THE

PAIN AND AGONY CONTINUED.

I DID HAVE KIDNEY

FAILURE.

IF YOU LOOKED AT THE WOUNDS

I HAD FROM MY GROIN DOWN TO

MY THIGH, YOU WOULDN'T EVEN

BELIEVE I WAS GOING TO

SURVIVE.

EITHER I WAS GOING TO GET

AMPUTATED, THEY WERE GOING

TO CUT MY LEGS OR

SOMETHING.

I HAD A SMALL, STILL VOICE

THAT TOLD ME TO PROCLAIM THE

BLOOD OF JESUS.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THE BLOOD

OF JESUS MEANT.

I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, YOU

EITHER SAY IT AND SEE IF IT

WORKS, OR YOU JUST LAY THERE

AND DIE.

THE VOO-DOO PEOPLE, THEY

WERE FIGHTING ME.

I KEPT ON SAYING THE BLOOD

OF JESUS, THE BLOOD OF

JESUS.

ONE AFTER THE OTHER, THEY

ABANDONED THEIR EQUIPMENT.

AND THEY LEFT.

Reporter: THE PAIN AND

BACTERIA ALSO LEFT JACKIE'S

BODY, AMAZING THE MEDICAL

STAFF.

AND I SAID WOW, THAT

THING WORKS.

THERE MUST BE POWER IN THE

BLOOD OF JESUS.

THAT WAS A POWERFUL

REVELATION.

Reporter: JACKIE BEGAN

THE ROAD TO RECOVERY.

WHILE I WAS RECOVERING

FOR TWO YEARS, PHYSICALLY, I

WAS DRASTICALLY GROWING

SPIRITUALLY.

I DEVELOPED THAT HUNGER FOR

THE THINGS OF GOD AND THE

THINGSSUPER

NATURAL.

I THANK YOU GOD.

I SAID LORD JESUS CHRIST,

COME INTO MY HEART.

I MAKE YOU MY LORD AND

SAVIOR.

FORGIVE ME OF MY SINS.

FROM THIS DAY FORWARD I LIVE

FOR YOU.

Reporter: JACKIE HAS

FULLY RECOVERED.

SHE AND HENRY USE HER

MIRACLE STORY TO SHARE GOD'S

LOVE WITH OTHERS.

OUT THERE, THERE ARE

PEOPLE WHO NEED TO KNOW THE

SAVING GRACE OF GOD.

THE HEALING POWER OF GOD.

THIS IS ALL A MIRACLE, AND

ONLY GOD CAN DO THIS.

ONLY GOD CAN DO THE

IMPOSSIBLE.

YOU TRULY WANT TO KNOW THAT

GOD HEALS?

TRY HIM FOR YOURSELF AND SEE

HIM SHOW UP AND DO GREAT

THINGS FOR YOU.

Pat: GREAT THINGS FOR

YOU.

Terry: AMAZING STORY.

Pat: HERE ARE A FEW

PRAYER REQUESTS.

THERE IS A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD

GRANDSON WHO HAS MULTIPLE

SCLEROSIS.

AND HERE IS A SPOUSE TO BE

HEALED FROM ALZHEIMER'S.

AND A WIDOW NEEDS A JOB TO

SUPPORT THREECHILDREN.

HER INTERVIEW IS TODAY, FOR

A JOB.

Terry: LET'S PRAY FOR

HER.

AND HERE IS SOMEONE SAYING,

I NEED A DAUGHTER TO BE

HEALED FROM NON-ALCOHOLIC

SCLEROSIS OF THE LIVER.

SOMEONE PRAYING FOR $25,000

TO RESOLVE A DEBT.

AND SOMEONE SAYING I NEED

FREEDOM FROM THE FEAR,

ANXIETY, AND DEPRESSION THAT

PLAGUES ME.

Pat: THIS IS

INTERESTING.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE SOME

SUPPORT ON THIS PROGRAM THAT

NONE OF US CAN SEE.

IT'S REALLY -- LOOK AT

THIS.

THERE IS A LADY, WHO'S NAME

IS L LUCRESHA, AND SHE WAS

WATCHING OUR SHOW YESTERDAY,

AND SHE HEARD A VOICE THAT

SAID, DO NOT LEAVE THE

ROOM.

THAT'S THE BEST WAY OF

GETTING YOUR AUDIENCE BACK.

RIGHT THEN, SHE SAID, I HAD

A WORD, PAT -- ME, I HAD A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE OF SOMEONE

WITH SCOLIOSIS BEING

HEALED.

AND KRISTI SAID THERE IS

SOMEBODY WITH SCIATIC BEING

HEALED.

AND THIS LADY HAD BOTH OF

THESE, THE SCIATIC NERVE AND

SCOLIOSIS.

SHE HAD BOTH OF THEM.

IMMEDIATELY, LUCRESHA FELT A

CRACKING IN HER BACK, HEARD

THE SOUND IN HER YEARS, AND

SHE JUMPED UP AND INSTANTLY

REALIZED THE PAIN IN HER

BACK WAS GONE.

WOW!

Terry: I GUESS WOW.

Pat: DO YOU HAVE

ANOTHER ANSWER TO PRAYER?

Terry: NO, I DON'T.

HERE THEY ARE.

OH, HERE.

Pat: THEY GAVE YOU

ONE.

Terry: THERE IS A BURTH

O BUNCH OF THEM.

THIS IS ANNIE, SHE SUFFERED

WITH C.O.P.D. FOR 20 YEARS.

PAT, YOU SAID THERE IS A

WOMAN WHO IS COUGHING,

COUGHING, AND YOU WON'T BE

COUGHING ANYMORE.

AND SHE TOOK A BIG BREATHE

AND SHE WAS HEALED.

YOU HAD A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE

SOMEONE HAD A GROWTH ON HER

NECK, AND SHE FELT WARMTH

AND THE GOYTER IS GONE.

Pat: FOLKS, A LOT OF

PEOPLE ARE PRAYING.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW GREAT

GOD IS.

I CAN'T COMPREHEND HOW GREAT

GOD IS.

I AM SO THRILLED TO JUST BE

PART OF A LITTLE TOUCH OF

GOD IN YOUR LIFE.

I THINK IF WE CAN ALL PRAY

TOGETHER, THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE.

SO TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER, AND

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD

FOR YOU.

NOW WHAT IS YOUR NEED?

RIGHT NOW LET THIS BE THE

MOMENT.

LORD, WE'RE SURROUNDED BY

THOUSANDS OF PRAYER

REQUESTS.

PEOPLE WHO ARE PRAYING ALL

OVER AMERICA AND IN OTHER

PARTS OF THE WORLD.

GOD ALMIGHTY, NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE WITH YOU.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH

YOU.

Terry: THANK YOU,

LORD.

Pat: THERE IS A GROIN

INJURY.

I BELIEVE YOU'VE GOT A

HERNIA IN YOUR GROIN, AND

RIGHT NOW, IF YOU PUT YOUR

HAND ON THAT PART OF YOUR

ANATOMY, THAT HERNIA IS

GOING TO SHRINK, AND THERE

IS GOING TO BE FIBER AND

MUSCLE THAT WILL GROW, EVEN

AS WE'RE SPEAKING, TO SEAL

OFF THAT PROBLEM.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE HAD CLEFT

PALLET SURGERY.

IT WAS DONE, OBVIOUSLY, TO

HEAL A PALLET THAT WAS OPEN,

BUT YOU'VE HAD TROUBLE WITH

IT EVER SINCE.

IT EFFECTS HOW YOU SPEAK AND

EVEN YOUR EATING.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

YOU'RE JUST GOING TO HAVE --

I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS

CARTILAGE THAT NEEDS TO

GROW, BUT SOMETHING IS GOING

TO FILL THAT IN AND YOU

WON'T HAVE A PROBLEM IN IT

ANYMORE.

Pat: SOMEONE, YOU'VE

GOT WASTING IN THE MUSCLES

IN YOUR ARMS.

THEY'RE LIKE LITTLE STICKS.

RIGHT NOW YOUR MUSCLES ARE

GOING TO BEGIN GROWING.

JUST BEGIN TO PRAISE GOD.

SOMEONE IS PRAYING FOR A LOT

OF MONEY.

YOU'RE PRAYING FOR

$500,000.

AND YOU'RE SAYING, IS IT

POSSIBLE?

YES, IT IS POSSIBLE.

GOD OWNS IT ALL, AND OUT OF

THE ABUNDANCE OF THIS

TREASURES, HE IS GOING TO

SHARE WITH YOU WHAT YOU

NEED.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

RIGHT NOW IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

Terry: THERE IS A YOUNG

MOM, YOU HAVE FIVE KIDS AND

YOU'RE LOOKING FOR WORK.

GOD IS GOING TO SUPPLY THAT

NEED FOR YOU.

DON'T BE DISCOURAGED.

PRAY WITH EXPEC EXPECTANCY,

IT IS AROUND THE CORNER.

Pat: SOMEBODY, YOU'RE

VOMITING RIGHT NOW.

I THINK IT IS A MORNING

SICKNESS.

GOD IS GOING TO TAKE AWAY

THAT PROBLEM.

YOU WON'T FEEL NAUSEA

ANYMORE AS WE SPEAK.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: PRAISE GOD.

Terry: MANY PEOPLE

PRAYING TODAY.

Pat: ALL OF THOSE

PEOPLE, SCOLIOSIS AND

THINGS?

Terry: AWESOME.

GOD IS ABLE.

Pat: THANK YOU, LORD.

HE IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, WE

WANT YOU TO MEET MAN THAT

REINHARD BONNKE HAS PICKED

AS HIS SUCCESSOR.

THAT'S COMING UP.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

CALIFORNIA PASTOR GREG

LAURIE IS OPENING THE

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER AT

THE PENTAGON TODAY, DESPITE

OPPOSITION FROM GAY RIGHTS

GROUP.

HE IS THE HONORARY CHAIRMAN

OF THE NATIONAL DAY OF

PRAYER.

AND HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN

HAD URGED THE PENTAGON TO

WITHDRAW ITS INVITATION TO

LAURIE, BECAUSE HE TEACHES

THAT MARRIAGE SHOULD BE

BETWEEN ONE MAN AND ONE

WOMAN.

LAURIE SAYS, QUOTE,"I'M NOT

TRYING TO SENSOR ANYBODY

ELSE, AND I DON'T THINK THEY

SHOULD TRY TO CENSOR US."

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SAYS

THE JUDGE EXCEEDED HIS

AUTHORITY IN THE

MORNING-AFTER PILL.

THEY WANT HIS DECISION

SUSPENDED WHILE THE APPEAL

IS UNDER WAY.

U.S. SISTER JUDGE, EDWARD

KORMAN OF NEW YORK MANDATED

THAT EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION

BE AVAILABLE ON STORE

SHELVES TO ANYONE, NO MATTER

HOW YOUNG THEY ARE.

HE SAYS DRUGS LIKE THE PLAN

"B" PILL SHOULD BE SOLD JUST

LIKE ASPIRIN.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN ALWAYS GET

THE LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, WHEN HE

WAS 16 YEARS OLD, DANIEL

WROTE A LETTER TO EVANGELIST

REINHARD BONNKE, TELLING HIM

HE WAS YOU SUPPOSED TO WORK

WITH HIM.

HE SPELLED REINHARD BONNKE'S

NAME WRONG, BUT HE GOT THE

JOB ANYWHERE, MANY YEARS

LATER.

Reporter: WHEN DANIEL

PRAYS FOR PEOPLE, MIRACLES

HAPPEN.

HE TOOK THE PUNISHMENT

FOR YOUR SINS.

Reporter: IN 2004,

DANIEL WAS THE PASTOR OF A

SMALL CHURCH IN FLORIDA.

TO MAKE ENDS MEET, HE

STARTED WORKING IN THE

WAREHOUSE FOR REINHARD

BONNKE'S MINISTRY.

EVENTUALLY REINHARD ASKED

DANIEL TO TRAVEL WITH HIM AS

AN ASSISTANT.

LATER HE ASKED DANIEL TO

PREACH.

TODAY DANIEL MINISTERS

ALONGSIDE REINHARD AND SEES

GOD DO DO AWESOME MIRACLES

AROUND THE WORLD.

IN HIS BOOK "LIVE BEFORE YOU

DIE," HE SHARES HOW ACTIVE

PRAYERS WILL HELP YOU

DISCOVER WHAT GOD HAS

SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," DANIEL

COLENDA.

THANK YOU.

IT IS GREAT TO BE HERE.

Terry: YOU SAY YOU FELT

CALLED TO WORK WITH

REINHARD.

HOW DID GOD SPEAK TO YOUR

HEART ABOUT THAT?

IT IS AN AMAZING STORY.

I DON'T HAVE TIME TO TELL

THE WHOLE THING.

BUT WHEN I WAS 16, I WAS IN

A MEETING IN BROWNSVILLE,

FLORIDA, AND THERE WAS A

WOMAN THERE, SUZETTE, AND

SHE WAS REINHARD'S

ASSISTANT.

WHEN SHE BEGAN TO PRAY, THE

HOLY SPIRIT SPOKE TO ME AND

SAID YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO

WORK WITH THAT MAN.

AS YOU SAW IN THE CLIP, I

WENT HOME AND WROTE A LETTER

TO REINHARD, TELLING HIM THE

LORD SPOKE TO ME, BUT I

NEVER SENT HIM THE LETTER.

I NEVER SENT THE LETTER.

BECAUSE WHEN I SAW HOW BIG

HIS MINISTRY WAS, I THOUGHT

THIS MAN WOULD NEVER GET MY

LETTER AND READ MY LETTER.

BUT THE LORD HEARD ME.

Terry: IT WAS EIGHT

YEARS LATER THAT YOU BEGAN

TO WORK WITH REINHARD.

IF YOU DIDN'T WRITE THE

LETTER, HOW DID YOU FINALLY

CONNECT?

HIS MINISTRY, WHEN I WAS

16, WAS BASED IN GERMANY.

I WAS LIVING IN PENSACOLA.

OVER THE NEXT EIGHT YEARS,

HI MINISTRY MOVED FROM

GERMANY TO CALIFORNIA TO

ORLANDO.

AND I WAS LOOKING FOR A WAY

TO SUPPORT MY FAMILY.

I WAS WILLING TO WORK AT

McDONALD'S OR BURGER

KING.

IT DIDN'T MATTER.

A FRIEND OF MINE FROM BIBLE

SCHOOL SAYS THE MINISTER I

WORK FOR IS LOOKING FOR

SOMEONE TO RUN A PARTICULAR

DEPARTMENT.

AND I SAID WHAT MINISTER IS

IT?

AND HE SAID CHRIST FOR ALL

NATIONS, REINHARD BONNKE.

AND I WAS SWEEPING FLOORS,

AND REINHARD SAW ME, AND HE

WENT TO MY SUPERVISOR AND

SAID, ASK THAT YOUNG MAN IF

HE WANTS TO TRAVEL WITH ME

AS AN ASSISTANT.

SO I SAID, LET ME PRAY ABOUT

IT, AND I SAID YES.

IT TOOK ME ABOUT THAT LONG.

Terry: TALK ABOUT WHY

IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO BE

FAITHFUL IN THE LITTLE

THINGS.

THIS IS A PRINCIPLE THAT

JESUS LAID OUT OVER AND OVER

AGAIN IN THE GOSPELS.

HE THAT IS FAITHFUL WILL BE

MADE MUCH.

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE A VIEW

OF GOD'S WILL THAT IT IS

THIS BIG, GRAND SCHEME THEY

NEED TO ATTEND TO.

WHAT THEY DON'T REALIZE IS

GOD'S WILL IS FULFILLED ONE

DAY AT A TIME, ONE STEP AT A

TIME, ONE ACT OF OBEDIENCE

AT A TIME.

IF YOU'RE NOT BEING FAITHFUL

WHERE GOD HAS YOU TODAY,

DON'T EXPECT HIM TO PROMOTE

YOU TOMORROW.

WHAT YOU DO WITH GOD'S CALL

TODAY MATTERS.

Terry: IT IS LIKE THE

STORY OF JOSEPH.

YOU'RE BEING PREPARED.

AND YET SO MANY TIMES IN THE

PREPARATION, IT DOESN'T LOOK

LIKE WE'RE HEADED TO WHERE

WE SOMETIMES FEEL CALLED.

RIGHT.

Terry: YOU HAVE AN

AMAZING PRAYER MINISTRY IN

YOUR OWN RIGHT, AND YOU HAVE

SEEN MANY MIRACLES.

WHEN WE THINK OF REINHARD

AND HIS MINISTRY, WE THINK

OF MIRACLES BEING MANIFESTED

AROUND THE WORLD.

A FEW MONTHS AGO, SOMETHING

HAPPENED TO A YOUNG BOY, A

MIRACLE, TELL US ABOUT

THAT.

I WAS IN A CITY IN

NIGERIA, AND THERE WAS A

MOTHER WHO BROUGHT HER

3-YEAR-OLD SON TO THE

MEETING, AND HIS NAME WAS

GREAT.

SHE BROUGHT HIM TO RECEIVE

HEALING.

INSTEAD OF BEING HEALING, HE

DIED ON THE FIELD.

Terry: GOOD GRIEF.

AND MANY WOULD CURSE GOD

AND SAY WHY DID YOU DO

THIS.

NOT THIS MAMA.

SHE PICKED UP HIS LIFELESS

BODY, AND THE DOCTORS

CONFIRMED HE WAS DEAD.

SHE WAITED FOR A COUPLE OF

HOURS.

I SAW HER STANDING THERE

WEEPING, AND IOW I BEGAN TO

PRAY FOR HER SON.

I PRAYED FOR ABOUT 30

SECONDS,AND THEN I HANDED

HIM BACK OVER TO THE

MOTHER.

AS WE WERE DRIVING AWAY, THE

LITTLE BOY CAME BACK TO

LIFE.

THE NEXT DAY WHEN I ARRIVED,

HE WAS RUNNING AROUND

PLAYING.

TOTALLY MADE WHOLE BY THE

POWER OF GOD.

Terry: THESE TYPES OF

HEALINGS SEEM TO HAPPEN IN

THE AFRICAS, AND THE REMOTE

PLACES OF THE WORLD.

WHERE PEOPLE ARE DESPERATELY

POOR.

IS THERE FAITH GREATER?

WHY DO YOU THINK WE SEE SO

MUCH OF THAT IN THESE

AREAS?

PEOPLE ALWAYS ASK ME WHY

DO MIRACLES HAPPEN IN

AFRICA?

I DON'T THINK THEY DO.

THAT IS OUR MENTALITY.

HE SAYS HE WHO BELIEVE IN

GOD -- SO IF WE COME TO GOD

AND THINK HE DOES IT IN

OTHER TIMES, WE HAVE

PROPHESIED OUR OWN OUTCOME.

BUT THE TRUTH IS THE GOD OF

AFRICA AND ASIA AND EUROPE

IS THE GOD OF THE WESTERN

WORLD AND WE CAN TRUST GOD

FOR THE SAME THINGS.

Terry: YOU TALKED ABOUT

KNOWING GOD'S WILL WHEN YOU

WERE DISCUSSING IT FOR YOUR

OWN LIFE.

I THINK PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE

LONG TO KNOW THE WILL OF

GOD, BUT THEY DON'T ALWAYS

KNOW HOW TO FIND IT.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THEM?

HERE IS THE FIRST THING:

GOD'S WILL IS NOT

DIFFICULT.

A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK THEY

HAVE THIS GRAND MASTER GAME

IN MIND, NOT REALIZING GOD

IS TRYING TODAY TO REVEAL

HIS WILL.

THAT'S WHY I WROTE THIS

BOOK, BECAUSE PEOPLE NEED TO

KNOW GOD'S ANSWERS FOR THEIR

LIFE TODAY.

THINGS LIKE WHAT CITY DO I

LIVE IN?

WHO DO I MARRY?

WHAT JOB DO I TAKE?

THESE VERY PRACTICAL DOWN TO

EARTH, DAY-TO-DAY MATTERS IN

OUR LIFE, THAT LEADS US

ULTIMATELY INTO THAT GRAND

PLAN THAT GOD HAS FOR OUR

LIVES.

I WANTED PEOPLE TO

UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS EASY,

NUMBER ONE.

AND PART OF THE KEY IS BEING

ABLE TO HEAR GOD'S VOICE?

Terry: HOW DO YOU LEARN

TO DO THAT.

GOD SAYS HE SPEAKS IN A

STILL, SMALL VOICE.

AND MANY PEOPLE STRUGGLE

WITH HOW DO I KNOW IT IS

GOD?

I LAY OUT A LOT OF

PRINCIPLES IN THE BOOK, BUT

LET ME GIVE YOU THIS ONE

THAT IS SO SIMPLE.

HAVE YOU BEEN IN A CROWDED

SHOPPING MALL AND YOU HEARD

A VOICE FROM BEHIND YOU

CALLING YOUR NAME?

AND SINCE INSTANTLY

INSTANTLY YOU RECOGNIZED

IT.

EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS A LOT

OF NOISE, YOU RECOGNIZED A

FAMILIAR VOICE OF SOMEONE

YOU LOVE.

I THINK YOU NEED TO LOVE

HIM, SPEND TIME WITH HIM,

AND BECOME FAMILIAR WITH HIS

VOICE,AND YOU'LL RECOGNIZE

IT MORE AND MORE.

Terry: WHAT IS THIS

CODE SCANNING THING?

IT IS CALLED Q.R. CODES.

AS YOU'RE READING THE BOOK,

YOU COME ALONG THE BAR

CODES, AND YOU TAKE OUT YOUR

SMARTPHONE AND YOU SCAN

THEM.

AND A VIDEO WILL POP UP THAT

BACKS UP AND REINFORCES THE

THEME OF THE BOOK AND THE

CONTENT IN THE BOOK.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A

SMARTPHONE, YOU CAN JUST

TYPE IN THE ADDRESS.

IT IS THERE IN THE BOOK AS

WELL.

IT IS A VERY COOL FEATURE

THAT MAKES THE BOOK

INTERACTIVITY.

NOT JUST A READ, BUT AN

EXPERIENCE.

Terry: EVERYBODY CAN

UTILIZE THAT.

DANIEL'S BOOK IS CALLED

"LIVE BEFORE YOU DIE; WAKE

UP TO GOD'S WILL."

DANIEL WILL ALSO BE THE

SPECIAL GUEST AT OUR CHAPEL

SERVICE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOG ON

TO cbn.com, ANDTHAT'S AT

NOON EASTERN TIME.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

IT'S WONDERFUL TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

THE LORD BLESS YOU.

AND WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'LL

HAVE "BRING IT ON."

SUE SAYS, "MY HUSBAND LEFT

ME AND MY 3-YEAR-OLD

DAUGHTER FOR THE SECOND TIME

NINE MONTHS AGO.

I KEEP ASKING GOD TO TAKE

AWAY THE LOVE I HAVE FOR

HIM, BUT WITH EACH PASSING

DAY I FEEL WORTHLESS AND

HOPELESS.

HOW CAN I GET MY PRAYERS

ANSWERED?"

HANG ON, SUE.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE YOUR

QUESTION WHEN WE RETURN.

Terry: I'M GOING TO

JUMP RIGHT INTO SUE'S E-MAIL

QUESTION.

"MY HUSBAND LEFT ME AND MY

3-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER FOR THE

SECOND TIME NINE MONTHS

AGO.

I KEEP PRAYING AND ASKING

GOD TO TAKE AWAY ALL OF THE

LOVE I HAVE FOR HIM AND ALL

OF THE PAIN OF BEING

ABANDONED.

BUT WITH EACH PASSING DAY, I

JUST FEEL WORTHLESS AND

HOPELESS.

I'M IN A PIT OF DISPAIR.

HOW CAN I GET MY PRAYERS

ANSWERED?"

Pat: YOU'RE PRAYING FOR

THE YOUNG THING. THE-- WRONG THING.

YOU PRAYING FOR GOD TO TAKE

AWAY LOVE FOR A PERSON.

YOU SAY, GIVE ME LOVE AND

FORGIVENESS.

AND YOU BEGIN TO PRAY FOR

BLESSING ON HIM.

ONCE YOU START PRAYING THAT,

HE WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYER.

HOW IT COMES ABOUT REMAINS

TO BE SEEN.

YOU THANK GOD FOR WHAT HE

HAS DONE.

IF THE GUY HAS LEFT YOU,

THANK HIM FOR IT.

THANK YOU FOR TAKING THAT

MAN AWAY FROM ME.

GIVE ME LOVE FOR HIM, BUT

BUT --

Terry: AND THANK HIM

FOR YOUR DAUGHTER.

KIMBERLY SAYS, "WHEN SOMEONE

CALLS JESUS DADDY, I

LITERALLY HAVE A PHYSICAL

REACTION OF NAUSEA.

MY FATHER IS A HATEFUL,

HATEFUL MAN, AND I DON'T

THINK I'LL EVER BE ABLE TO

HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP

WITH JESUS IF I DON'T HAVE

THAT WITH MY FATHER.

YOU SAY TO PRAY TO HIM LIKE

YOUR TALKING TO DADDY.

PLEASE HELP ME."

Pat: KEEP IN YOUR MIND

A LOVING MAN, HE IS KIND AND

HE GOES TO YOUR BALLGAMES.

THINK OF HIM.

WHEN YOU START TALKING TO

GOD, THINK IN YOUR MIND OF

WHAT YOU'VE CREATED.

AND DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE

PAIN THAT WENT BEFORE.

CREATE IN YOUR OWN MIND

SOMETHING IDEAL.

AND GOD IS IDEAL.

TOMORROW, A PREMATURE BABY

WITH MULTIPLE PROBLEMS LIVES

UP TO HER NAME.

HER NAME IS MIRACLE.

TOMORROW, WE'LL SEE YOU

THEN.

BYE-BYE.
