When her pastor crossed the line with her sexually Katrina wanted out of this life. Plus, riding out a hurricane in a vehicle became deadly when a tree fell on the roof of Morganne's car. Read Transcript


Lee: A CITY ON LIFE

SUPPORT.

IT'S JUST SUCH

DEVASTATION AND POVERTY AND

CRIME AND DRUGS.

Lee: IT IS A NEW LEASE

ON LIFE.

PLUS...STORM CHASING A

HURRICANE.

MORGAN HAS ALWAYS WANTED

TO SEE A STORM.

Lee: A FAMILY TAKES A

HIT, AND THEIR DAUGHTER'S

LIFE HANGS IN THE BALANCE.

THEY TOLD US THE CHANCE

HER SURVIVING IS NOT GOOD.

AND IF SHE DOES...

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

THE BOSTON MARATHON BOMBINGS

HAVE REIGNITED THE FEAR OF

TERRORISM ACROSS THE

NATION.

YOU'VE ALSO RENEWED THE FEAR

THAT AMERICA COULD EVEN GET

INTO A SURVEILLANCE

SOCIETY.

Terry: THE TERROR

ATTACK HAS POLITICIANS

DEBATING NATIONAL SECURITY

AND IMMIGRATION.

BUT AS JOHN JESSUP REPORTS,

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE JUST

AS WORRIED ABOUT THEIR

PRIVACY.

Reporter: AFTER CAMERAS

CAPTURED THE CHAOTIC SCENE

AT THE BOSTON MARATHON

FINISH LINE, THE CITY'S

POLICE CHIEF SAYS HE WANTS

MORE CAMERAS TO HELP LAW

ENFORCEMENT KEEP WATCH ON

POSSIBLE HIGH-VALUED

TARGETED AREAS DOWNTOWN.

A COLLECTION OF VIDEO, BOTH

PRIVATE AND PUBLIC, AND CELL

PHONES, HELPED IDENTIFY

THEIR SUBJECTS.

NOW OTHER CITIES MAY WANT TO

FOLLOW SUIT.

BUT PRIVACY ACTIVISTS --

PREVENTING CRIMES ARE NOT

SOMETHINGTHAT CAMERA

SYSTEMS ARE SHOWN TO BE

USEFUL FOUR.

Reporter: MARK'S

ORGANIZATION KEEPS A

WATCHFUL EYE ON THOSE WHO

ARE MONITORING D.C.'S VAST

NETWORK OF CAMERAS.

WHILE HE BELIEVES THE

TECHNOLOGY CAN BE USEFUL, HE

SAYS IT ISALSO LIMITED.

YOU LOOK AT STUDY AFTER

STUDY, AND THE LESSON THAT

YOU TAKES THAT

CAMERAS CAN BE HELPFUL AFTER

THE FACT.

BUT THEYRARELY PREVENT

CRIMES, AND THEY CERTAINLY

DIDN'T IN BOSTON.

Reporter: TEXAS

CONGRESSMAN LOUIE GOMER HAS

OTHER CONCERNS.

TECHNOLOGY IS A FANTASTIC

INSTRUMENT TO FIGHT CRIME,

BUT THE DANGER IS THAT

EVERYONE GETS MONITORED ALL

THE TIME.

Reporter: HE IS IS

WORRIED THE EXPANSION OF

SURVEILLANCE COULD LEAD TO

GOVERNMENT OVERREACH, WITH

BIG BROTHER CAPABLE OF

KNOWING WHAT VIRTUALLY

EVERYONE HAS BEEN DOING.

WE'RE CLOSE TO THAT NOW.

THEY HAVE THE CAPABILITY OF

GOING ON AND FINDING OUT

WHAT YOU'VE PURCHASED OR

WHAT WEBSITES YOU GO TO,

WHAT E-MAILS YOU SEND.

Reporter: IT IS AN EVEN

GREATER CONCERN WITH THE USE

OF UNMANNED DRONES FLYING

OVER OFF-AIR SPACE.

DRONE SURVEILLANCE RAISES

ISSUES THAT ARE SIMILAR TO

THE CAMERA SURVEILLANCE IN

CITIES.

THIS IS ANOTHER USEFUL

TECHNOLOGY.

IT HAS PUBLIC BENEFIT, BUT

THIS SHOULD NOT BECOME A

TYPE OF SURVEILLANCE OF ALL

ACTIVITY THAT PEOPLE ENGAGE

IN.

THAT WOULD BE GOING TOO

FAR.

Reporter: THE ADVANT OF

FEWER TECHNOLOGIES WILL

CONTINUE TO SPARK CONCERNS

ABOUT PRIVACY, AND THE

POST-9/11 WORLD, THE TRADE

OFF BETWEEN FEELING SECURE

MAKES ANYONE PRIVACY TO BE

DEBATED FOR YEARS TO COME.

JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: THANKS, JOHN.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IF YOU

READ THAT CHILLING BOOK,

"1984 GEORGE ORWELL," AND IT

WAS A SHOCKER WHEN IT WAS

PUBLISHED, BUT NOW PEOPLE

SORT OF TAKE IT FOR

GRANTED.

THINK WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF

YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING

AND THERE IS A CAMERA THAT

WATCHES WHAT YOU DO.

YOU WALK OUT OF YOUR HOME,

AND YOU HAVE TO LOG INTO

SOME KIND OF A BOX THAT

TELLS WHERE YOU ARE AND WHAT

TIME YOU STARTED YOUR DAY.

AND THEN YOU GET ON A BUS OR

YOU GET IN YOUR CAR,

WHATEVER YOU DO, AND WHAT DO

YOU DO DURING THE DAY?

WHEN YOU GET TO YOUR OFFICE,

YOU PUNCH ANOTHER BUTTON AND

YOU LOG IN.

ALL OF THE TIME YOU'RE UNDER

SURVEILLANCE, EVERY TIME YOU

MOVE.

WHEN IS THERE FREEDOM?

WELL, THERE IS NO FREEDOM.

AND THAT WAS THE WHOLE

PREMISE OF "1984," AND THERE

CAME A TIME WHEN, QUOTE,"BIG

BROTHER" MONITORED

EVERYTHING.

WE'RE COMING TO THAT NOW.

IT IS NOT A PLEASANT

SITUATION, BUT THIS IS WHAT

THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT WHEN

IT SAYS YOU CAN'T BUY OR

SELL WITHOUT THE MARK OF THE

BEAST.

YOU HAVE TO BE PART OF THAT

WORLD SYSTEM.

AND A FEW, AND VERY, VERY

FEW, CAN ESCAPE, BECAUSE

RIGHT NOW THEY CAN GO DOWN

INTO THE BUSH IN DARKEST

AFRICA AND HUNT YOU DOWN.

SO YOU SAY, WELL, WE'RE

GOING TO FEEL SECURE --

SECURE FROM WHOM?

I BELIEVE THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE ARE MORE AFRAID OF

THE OVERREACH OF BIG

GOVERNMENT, THAN THEY ARE

SOME OCCASIONAL BOMBER.

EVEN IF THE BOMBER KILLS A

FEW PEOPLE.

THEY WOULD STILL RATHER HAVE

THEIR FREEDOM THAN TO HAVE

BIG BROTHER IN CONSTANT

SURVEILLANCE.

WELL, THE F.B.I. SAYS THAT

THEY HAVE THWARTED A NEW

TERROR ATTACK.

LEE WEBB HAS MORE FROM THE

CBN NEWSROOM.

Lee: PAT, THIS TIME THE

SUSPECT IS SAID TO BE PART

OF AN AMERICAN MALITIA

GROUP.

24-YEAR-OLD BUFORD ROGERS

WAS ARRESTED IN HIS HOME.

AUTHORITIES FOUND PIPE

BOMBS, MOLOTOV COCKTAILS AND

A ROMANIAN ASSAULT RIFLES.

HE WAS PLANNING AN ATTACK

AGAINST LOCAL RESIDENTS AND

POSSIBLY THE F.B.I.

GOVERNMENTAL OFFICIALS.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS

ACCUSING CHINA'S MILITARY OF

CARRYING OUT COMPUTER-BASED

ATTACKS AGAINST THE U.S.

IT SAYS CHINA HAS BEEN

SPYING ON U.S., DIPLOMATIC,

ECONOMIC, AND DEFENSE

PROGRAMS.

AND THE REPORT ALSO WARNS

THAT THE COMPUTER SKILLS

NEEDED FOR THIS KIND OF

SPYING ARE SIMILAR TO THE

KIND NEEDED TO CONDUCT

CYBERWARFARE.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THE

U.S. HAS DIRECTLY ACCUSED

THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT AND

ITS MILITARYOF USUAL

CYBERATTACKS TO SALE U.S.

INFORMATION.

THE ATTACK ON BENGHAZI IS

BACK ON CAPITOL HILL.

IT IS FIELDING REPUBLICAN

CHARGES THAT THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION ISINGAGED

A COVERUP.

GEORGE THOMAS REPORTS.

Reporter: THREE MEN,

ALL CAREER STATE DEPARTMENT

EMPLOYEES, WILL TESTIFY THIS

WEEK THAT THE WHITE HOUSE

MISLED THE COUNTRY ON WHAT

HAPPENED AT THE U.S. DEP

MASU.S. DIPLOMATIC

MISSION.

ACCORDING TO INTERVIEW

TRANSCRIPTS, HE SAYS "I

THOUGHT IT WAS A TERRORIST

ATTACK FROM THE GET-GO."

I THINK EVERYBODY IN THE

MISSION THOUGHT IT WAS A

TERRORIST ATTACK FROM THE

BEGINNING.

U.S. AMBASSADOR TO LIBYA,

CHRIS STEVENS, DIED IN THE

ATTACK, ALONG WITH THREE

OTHER AMERICANS.

YET FIVE DAYS AFTER THE

ATTACK ON SEPTEMBER 11,

2012, SUSAN RICE WENT ON

MULTIPLE SUNDAY SHOWS,

BLAMING THE INCIDENT ON A

ANTIMUSLIM VIDEO THAT WENT

ON THE INTERNET.

SOME REPUBLICANS SAY THE

ADMINISTRATION'S RESPONSE

WAS CALCULATED, COMING ON

THE HEELS OF A PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTION LESS THAN TWO

MONTHS AWAY.

CLEARLY THERE WAS A

POLITICAL DECISION TO SAY

SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN

WHAT WAS REASONABLE TO SAY.

Reporter: AND HICKS

WILL ALSO TESTIFY THAT A

SMALL TEAM OF U.S. FORCES

WERE READY TO FLY A RESCUE

MISSION TO BENGHAZI, BUT

WERE ORDERED TO STEP DOWN.

THIS DIRECTLY CONTRADICTS

THE WHITE HOUSE, WHICH SAYS

ALL AVAILABLE RESOURCES WERE

EMPLOYED TO RESPOND TO THE

ATTACK.

SOME DEMOCRATS SAY RICE'S

COMMENTS ABOUT THE ATTACK

WERE WRONG, AND REFERENCES

TO ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS AND

al-QAEDA WERE SCRUBBED FROM

HER TALK.

SOME ACCUSE THE

ADMINISTRATION OF TRYING TO

DOWN PLAY THE THREAT BY

TERRORISTS.

THERE IS A TENDENCY TO

UNDERPLAY WHAT IN FACT IS A

GROWING AND PRETTY

DANGEROUS, AND TO SOME

EXTENT, A DIFFERENT KIND OF

THREAT THAN WHAT WE WERE

FACING THREE OUR FOR YEARS

AGO.

Reporter: HICKS HAS

ALSO TOLD INVESTIGATORS THAT

AMBASSADOR RICE'S RESPONSE

MAY HAVE HAMMERED EFFORTS TO

CAPTURE THOSE.

"I THINK THE REASON IT TOOK

US SO LONG TO GET THE F.B.I.

TO BENGHAZI WAS BECAUSE OF

THOSE SUNDAY TALK SHOWS."

HICKS AND OTHERS WILL SPEAK

FOR THE FIRST TIME WHEN THEY

APPEAR BEFORE CONGRESS.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Lee: PAT, UNTIL THIS

POINT, MOST OF THE STORY HAS

BEEN COVERED BY THE MORE

CONSERVATIVES.

Pat: WHAT WAS THE BIG

THING ABOUT WATERGATE?

IT WAS THE ADMINISTRATION

LYING, LYING TO CONGRESS,

LYING ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING

ON, TRYING TO SUBVERT THE

AGENCIES OF GOVERNMENT.

WELL, THE LIBERAL MEDIA

JUMPED ON RICHARD NIXON AND

BROUGHT HIM DOWN.

HE FINALLY HAD TO RESIGN.

BUT WE'VE GOT A PRESIDENT

NOW WHO DELIBERATELY LIES.

THIS IS A LIE.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

THEY HAVE AN AGENDA.

THE AGENDA IS, WE HAVE WON

THE WAR ON TERROR, SO THERE

ISN'T A WAR ON TERROR NAME.

AND al-QAEDA IS NO LONGER

AN OPERATIVE FORCE.

IT IS JUST A BAND OF ROGUES

OCCASIONALLY OUT THERE.

SO IF ANYTHING HAPPENS, IT

HAS TO BE SPONTANEOUS

BECAUSE OF A VIDEO.

AND SO SOME LOW-LEVEL

STAFFER IN THE CAIRO EMBASSY

DISEEDED THADECIDED SHE --

I BELIEVE IT WAS A SHE --

WAS GOING TO APOLOGIZE FOR

WHAT THE UNITED STATES DID.

AND WE'RE SORRY, AND AFTER

THAT, SOME OF THESE THINGS

BEGAN.

BUT THE WHOLE THOUGHT THAT

THIS WAS SPONTANEOUS

DEMONSTRATION IN RELATION TO

A VIDEO WAS MADE OUT OF A

HOLE CLOTH.

THEY WERE A SERIES OF LIES.

HILLARY CLINTON APPARENTLY

WAS INVOLVED IN LYING, AND

SUSAN RICE WAS SET UP AS THE

FALL GUY.

SHE MADE THE ROUND ON THE

SUNDAY TALK SHOWS AND SAID

THE MISINFORMATION OVER AND

OVER AGAIN.

HOW LONG ARE THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE GOING TO PUT UP WITH

THIS?

YOU SAY, MOST PEOPLE THEY

DON'T CARE.

BENGHAZI, WHO CARES?

WELL, IT MAKES A GREAT DEAL

OF DIFFERENCEYOUR

PRESIDENT DOESN'TTELL YOU

THE TRUTH.

Lee: PAT, THE U.S.

SENATE HASALLOWED NEW TAXES

FOR INTERNET SALES.

RIGHT NOW MOST INTERNET

SHOPPING IS TAX-FREE.

THIS BILL WILL ALLOW EACH

STATE TO START TAXING

INTERNET SELLS AS THEY

CHOOSE.

IT WILL LEVEL THE PLAYING

FIELD TO BRICK AND MORTER

STORES WHO HAVE LOST

BUSINESS.

BUT MANY SMALLER ONLINE

COMPANIES SAY THEY MAY NOT

BE ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH THE

TAX REQUIREMENTS ACROSS THE

NUMEROUS STATES WHERETHEY

DOBUSINESS.

IT FACESAN UPHILL BATTLE IN

THE HOUSE.

OBAMACARE COULD CAUSE

THOUSANDS OFVERY SICK

PEOPLETO LOSE INSURANCE

COVERAGE.

THE PRE-EXISTING PLAN IS

SUPPOSED TTHOSE

CONSIDERED UNINSURABLE.

BUT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

IS CAPSPENDING AT

$5 BILLION.

THAT LEAVES THE STATES WITH

THE REST OF THE BILL.

AND IN A LETTER TO THE

HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

SECRETARY, A LEADING STATE

HEALTH OFFICIAL SAYS ENROLL

EES ARE AT INCREASE IN

PREMIUMS AND OUT OF POCKET

COSTS THAT MAY MAKE

CONTINUED ENROLLMENT COSTS

PROHIBITIVE.

AND HE WARNS THAT MANY

PEOPLE WILL SIMPLY LOSE

THEIR INSURANCE COVERAGE.

Pat: LEE, IT BREAKS MY

HEART AND IT SHOULD BAKE THE

HEART OF EVERY THINKING

AMERICAN, THAT WE HAVE

DESTROYED, OR ARE IN THE

PROCESS OF DESTROYING, THE

GREATEST HEALTH CARE SYSTEM

IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.

THIS THING IS A

MONSTROSITY.

THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR IT

NEVER READ IT.

THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS IN

IT.

NANCY PELOSI SAID WE'VE GOT

TO PASS IT SO WE CAN FIND

OUT WHAT IS IN IT.

THE HIDDEN CONSEQUENCES ARE

GIGANTIC, JUST HIDDEN

CONSEQUENCES, AND THEY'RE

JUST STARTING TO COME TO

LIGHT, AND THEY'RE GOING TO

COME TO LIGHT OVER AND OVER

AGAIN.

PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE

HURT.

POOR FAMILIES ARE GOING TO

BE DAMAGED.

THE AMERICAN ECONOMY IS IS

GOING TO BE HURT.

IT WAS A DISASTER.

AND THIS WAS THE CENTER

PIECE OF THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

HE IS PLACED THAT IT IS

CALLED OBAMACAREMENT

OBAMACARE.

WELWELL, HE SHOULDN'T BE.

THE WHOLE THING NEEDS TO BE

SCRUBBED.

THE ENTIRE WALL NEEDS TO BE

CANCELLED, AND START ALL

OVER AGAIN.

THERE ARE CERTAIN FEATURES

IN IT, LIKE THE

AFFORDABILITY OF INSURANCE,

AND SO FORTH, THAT NEED TO

BE PUT BACK IN.

IT COULD BE DONE ON A VERY,

VERY SIMPLE BASES.

NOTHING LIKE THIS GAR

MONSTROSITY.

Lee: A COURT HAD

BLOCKED THE GOVERNMENT FROM

ENFORCINGA MANDATE WHILE

TINDEL PLUSHTINDELS

PUBLISHERS WEREARGUING IN

COURTS.

IT MEANS TINDEL HOUSE WILL

NOT HAVE TO PROVIDE

CONTROVERSIAL

ABORTION-CAUSING DRUGS WHILE

THE CASE MOVES FORWARD IN

COURT.

PAT?

Pat: GOOD FOR TINDEL.

THEY PUBLISH THE LIVING

BIBLE, AMONG OTHER THINGS.

Terry: THAT IS GOOD

NEWS.

COMING UP NEXT, IT ONCE

LOOKED LIKE A WAR ZONE.

NOW THIS HISTORIC DISTRICT

HAS HAD A FACELIFT.

SEE THE PLAN TO REBUILD

AMERICA'S POOREST CITY WHEN

WE COME BACK.

AND THEN LATER ON, SHE

WANTED TO SEE A HURRICANE

CLOSE UP, AND THIS IS WHAT

IT COST HER.

A TEENAGER'S MIRACULOUS

STORM SURVIVAL STORY IS IS

STILL AHEAD.

Pat: ACROSS AMERICA,

CITIES HAVE BEEN GOING

BANKRUPT.

AND ALONG WITH THE

BANKRUPTCY, OF COURSE, IS

THE FACT THAT THE POLICE

DEPARTMENT ISN'T FUNDED

ADEQUATELY, AND CRIME BEGINS

TO PROLIFERATE.

CHICAGO IS I CONSIDERED THE

DEADLIEST CITY IN AMERICA.

BUT IT DOESN'T TAKE FIRST

PLACE.

THE MOST VIOLENT IS CAMDEN,

NEW JERSEY, WHICH ALSO

HAPPENS TO BE THE POOREST.

AS EPHRAIM GRAHAM REPORTS,

SOME LONG-TIME RESIDENTS OF

CAMDEN ARE TRYING TO TURN

THEIR CITY AROUND.

WATCH THIS.

I NEVER FOUND CAMDEN TO

BE A BAD PLACE.

Reporter: TINA SCOTT

DESIGNS CLOTHES.

SHE BEGAN WITH BRIDAL GOWNS

AND THEN PIONEERED

CUSTOM-DESIGNED ROBES FOR

WOMEN PREACHERS.

HER GARMENTS NOW SHIP TO

GERMANY, JAPAN, THE

CARRIBEAN, AND ACROSS THE

UNITED STATES.

MIND YOU, I FLUNGED

SEWING IN HIGH SCHOOL.

I HAD TO MAKE A PURPLE

PLEADED SCHOOL, AND I

COULDN'T DO IT, AND I GOT A

FAILING GRADE.

Reporter: THE

SEAMSTRESS AND SINGLE MOM

SPENT HER LIFE CHEATING THE

ODDS.

A PERFECT EXAMPLE IS WHEN

SHE CHOSE THIS NEIGHBORHOOD

TO START HER BUSINESS.

I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN

DESCRIBE IT TO YOU.

Reporter: THE OLD

PICTURES LOOK LIKE THEY CAME

FROM A WAR ZONE.

HER SHOP, A SHELL OF A

BUILDING, WITH NO ROOF AND

NO OTHER BUSINESSES NEARBY.

I WAS LOOKING THROUGH THE

EYES OF FAITH.

IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE IT FELT

LIKE WHAT GOD WAS LEADING ME

TO.

Reporter: TODAY,

CAMDEN'S REVITALIZED

HISTORIC CITY CAPTURES

TINA'S VISION AND MORE.

BUT IT IS STILL A WORK IN

PROGRESS THAT DOESN'T

STRETCH FAR ENOUGH.

ONCE YOU LEAVE FROM THIS

AREA, WHICH IS A LOT OF NEW

BUILDINGS AND A LOT OF NEW

CONSTRUCTION, AND GO TWO OR

THREE STREETS OVER, IT LOOKS

LIKE YOU'RE IN A TOTALLY

DIFFERENT PLACE.

Reporter: WE VISITED

THOSE PLACES.

CAMDEN IS A SMALL CITY,

REALLY.

IT IS NINE SQUARES MILES.

Reporter: WITH MICHAEL

DELEON.

HE SPENT THREE YEARS

SHOOTING A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT

THE CITY.

THERE ARE 70,000, THEY

SAY, PEOPLE IN CAMDEN, AND

IT IS SO SMALL.

NO MATTER WHERE YOU DRIVE

AROUND THE CITY, THERE IS

SUCH DEVASTATION AND POVERTY

AND CRIME AND DRUGS.

Reporter: CAMDEN SITS

IN A THRIVING CITY, BUT

THEIR REALITY IS NOT NEARLY

AS BRIGHT.

MORE THAN 42% OF ITS

POPULATION LIVES BELOW THE

POVERTY LEVEL.

AT ONE TIME, CAMDEN WAS A

THRIVING FACTORY TOWN, HOME

TO CAMPBELL'S SOUP AND RCA.

THE RACE RIOTS OF 1969 AND

'71 LEFT THE CITY IN RUINS.

AND THOSE WHO COULD AFFORD

TO LEAVE DID.

AND THAT WAS FOLLOWED BY

YEARS OF POLITICAL

CORRUPTION.

WHAT WAS TROUBLING ME SO

MUCH ABOUT WHAT WAS

HAPPENING IN CAMDEN AND

OTHER URBAN CITIES IN NEW

JERSEY WAS THE AMOUNT OF

KIDS THAT WERE DYING DUE TO

VIOLENCE AND DRUG ABUSE.

I GOT A MEMBER OF MY FAMILY

KILLED, AND IT DIDN'T STOP

MY DRUG ADDICTION AND DIDN'T

STOP MY GANG INVOLVEMENT.

AND I WAS PRESENT IN THE

ROOM WHEN A GANG MEMBER SHOT

AND KILLED MY BEST FRIEND,

AND I WENT TO PRISON FOR

AGGRAVATED MANSLAUGHTER.

Reporter: AFTER SERVING

TEN YEARS, HE CHOSE DEDICATE

HIS LIFE TO HELP CHILDREN

MAKE BETTER CHOICES WITH

THEIRS.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG

WITH THIS CITY THAT CAN'T BE

FIXED BY WHAT IS RIGHT WITH

THIS CITY.

AND THEY EN INFLUENCE, IN A

POSITIVE WAY, OTHER PEOPLE.

Reporter: HE INTRODUCED

US TO ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE.

TAWANDA JONES TURNS THE CITY

WATER TOWER INTO A DANCE

HALL FIVE DAYS A WEEK.

THIS IS CAMDEN'S

SOPHISTICATED SISTER'S DRILL

TEAM, A DANCE TROUPE JONES

STARTED WHEN SHE WAS ONLY

15.

SHE WAS INSPIRED BY HER

GRANDFATHER WHO BOUGHT THE

TEAM THEIR FIRST UNIFORMS

AND DRUMS 26 YEARS AGO.

MY GRANDFATHER JUST SEES

THE GREAT IN EVERYONE.

WHAT HE CONSTANTLY FED TO ME

IS IS THERE IS NOT ENOUGH

PEOPLE THAT CARE.

YOU HAVE TO BE ONE OF THOSE

PEOPLE.

Reporter: TAWANDA'S

GIRLS KNOW SHE CARES FROM

THE MOMENT THEY MET.

I JUST MET HER JUST ONLY

FOUR MONTHS AGO, AND SHE IS

LIKE A SECOND MOM.

SHE WANTS SO MUCH FOR ME,

AND I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MUCH

SHE WANTS FOR ME AND HOW

MUCH SHE WANTS ME TO SUCCEED

IN LIFE.

AND THAT SURPRISED ME, YOU

KNOW?

AND I'M JUST SO HAPPY.

I LOVE HER SO MUCH.

I CAN'T EVEN SAY IT ENOUGH.

WHEN THEY'RE IN THAT

WATER TOWER, THEIR WHOLE

EXPRESSION, EVERYTHING

CHANGES.

EVERYTHING CHANGES.

THEY REALLY LEAVE A LOT AT

THE DOOR, AND THEY DANCE THE

PAIN AWAY.

Reporter: TAKE DESIREE,

WHO LOST HER FATHER WHEN SHE

WAS ONLY 3.

SHE WAS LYING ON THE

STREET AND A DRUNK

MOTORCYCLE HIT HIM.

AND HE SLIPPED A MILE OR

TWO, AND HE BROKE ALL OF HIS

BONES AND DIED.

Reporter: BUT DESIREE

IS STILL A DADDY'S GIRL.

AND SHE THOUGHT OF HIM WHEN

THEY PERFORMED ON "DANCING

WITH THE STARS."

WE HAVE NEVER HAD A

DROPOUT.

WE HAVE NEVER HAD A

DROPOUT.

GOD.

GOD.

I CAN'T POSSIBLY TAKE CREDIT

FOR NONE OF THIS.

YOU KNOW, IT'S DEFINITELY

ALL GOD.

*

WORTH THE PRICE, THE PRICE

WE HAVE TO PAY *

WHAT OTHERS SEE AS

CAMDEN, YOU KNOW, I REALLY

CAN'T SPEAK FOR THEM.

BUT THIS IS MY CITY, AND I

LOVE IT.

* THERE IS A PROMISE

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS, CAMDEN,

NEW JERSEY.

Pat: IT'S AN INSPIRING

STORY.

CAMDEN -- WE DIDN'T MENTION

EARLIER -- WAS ONE OF THE

FIRST CITIES IN AMERICA TO

GO BANKRUPT.

BUT, TERRY, YEARS AGO, WHEN

I WOULD TAKE A TRAIN FROM

WASHINGTON TO NEW YORK,

THERE WAS A BIG SIGN

ALONGSIDE THE RAILROAD THAT

SAID, "WHAT CAMDEN MAKES,

THE WORLD TAKES."

Terry: CAMPBELL SOUP.

Pat: CAMPBELL SOUP THEY

WERE TAKING AND RCA, AND

THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN -- BUT,

HEY, THE HUMAN SPIRIT,

INDOMITABLE, AND WE TIP OUR

HATS TO THESE BRAVE PEOPLE

AND THAT DANCE TROUPE AND

OTHERS WHO ARE TRYING TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Terry: WHAT IS

ASTONISHING IS IT DOESN'T

TAKE VERY MANY PEOPLE TO

BEGIN THE PROCESS OF TURNING

IT AROUND.

IT TAKES DETERMINATION AND

COMMITMENT.

Pat: WELL, IF YOU LIVE

IN A SLUM, AND I HAVE LIVED

AND AN AREA LIKE FOR A

LITTLE WHILE, THERE IS THIS

FEELING OF HOPELESSNESS

BECAUSE THERE ARE PEOPLE ON

DRUGS --

Terry: IT IS BROKEN

DOWN.

Pat: AND IT FEEDS ON

ITSELF.

BUT A SMALL CORE CAN BEGIN

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Terry: AND THEY HAVE.

THAT'S EXCITING.

THAT'S WONDERFUL.

Pat: AND THEY HAVE.

Terry: COMING UP, A

FAMILY VENTURES OUT IN THE

MIDST OF A HURRICANE AND

GETS THE SMACKDOWN.

IT WAS LIKE A SUDDEN

STOP, WHEN THE TREE HIT THE

VAN.

WHAT WAS PIERCING THROUGH

ME IS IS THE WORDS, "MORGAN

IS NOT BREATHING."

HER TONGUE CAME OUT OF HER

MOUTH.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

TEENAGER WALKED OUT OF THE

HOSPITAL IN LESS THAN TWO

WEEKS, AGAINST ALL ODDS.

*

Terry: TEENAGER MORGAN

ROUNDY HAD ALSO WANTED TO

SEE A HURRICANE FIRSTHAND.

AND WHEN IRENE HIT VIRGINIA

IN 2011, HER DREAM CAME

TRUE.

BUT HER PARENTS' WORST

NIGHTMARE HAD JUST BEGUN.

MORGAN HAS ALWAYS WANTED

TO SEE A STORM.

SHE KIND OF SAID TO ME, CAN

WE JUST DRIVE OUT AND SEE

WHAT THE WATER LEVELS ARE

DOING.

IT WASN'T REALLY BAD WHEN WE

LEFT.

WE STARTED TO SEE A FEW

SIGNS OF SOME TREE BRANCHES

DOWN, AND THE CONSENSUS WAS

WE WOULD GO AHEAD AND HEAD

TOWARDS HOME.

IT WAS LIKE A SUDDEN STOP

WHEN THE TREE HIT THE VAN.

IT WAS KIND OF LIKE A

DREAM.

WHAT WAS PIERCING THROUGH

ME IS THE WORDS, "MORGAN IS

NOT BREATHING."

AND ALL I COULD SEE WAS HER

KNEES, COVERED WITH HER HAIR

SPRAWLED OVER HER, AND HER

HANDS AND BOTH OF HER ARMS

HANGING LIFELESSLY AT HER

SIDE.

HER DAD -- HE PUT HIS HANDS

THROUGH THE WINDOW, AND HE

PUTS HIS HANDS UNDERNEATH

HER CHIN, AND HE JUST GENTLY

LIFTED IT UP.

AND HER TONGUE CAME OUT OF

HER MOUTH.

AND HER EYES STARTED LIKE A

SEIZURE A LITTLE BIT,

ROLLING A LITTLE BIT.

BUT THERE WAS NO EXPRESSION

IN HER EYES AT ALL.

SHE WASN'T MAKING ANY

CONTACT.

THERE WAS NO RECOGNITION,

BUT SHE STARTED TO BREATHE.

SHE STARTED TO BREATHE.

AND WE JUST KEPT PRAYING.

AS SOON AS THE RESPONSE

TEAM CAME, WE LEFT THE SIDE

OF THE VAN AS THEY WERE

COMING IN WITH THE BOARD.

AND I WAS PRAYING THE

WHOLE TIME.

I DON'T KNOW IF ANYONE

THOUGHT I WAS IN MY RIGHT

MIND AT THAT TIME, BUT I

KEPT ASKING, JESUS, HELP MY

BABY.

THEY BROUGHT MORGAN BACK

INTO THE EMERGENCY ROOM, AND

THEY WERE TELLING US THAT IT

WAS CRITICAL.

AND THE NEXT THING I KNOW,

WE WERE UPSTAIRS IN THE

SURGERY ROOM, THE PRE-OP.

AND THEY WERE VERY CANDID,

AND THEY TOLD US, THE CHANCE

OF HER SURVIVING IS NOT

GOOD, AND IS SHE A DONOR?

IT WAS REALLY HARD TO WALK

INTO THE ROOM AND TO SEE

HER.

SHE HAD TUBES COMING OUT THE

BACK OF HER SKULL AND A

ROUND DEVICE, ABOUT THIS

BIG, THAT WAS CAPTURING THE

DRAIN OF THE BLOOD AND THE

FLUID THAT WAS STILL COMING

OUT.

AND HER DAD HAD GONE TO ONE

OF THE ROOMS TO SLEEP.

AND WHEN HE CAME BACK, I

REMEMBER HIM SAYING, IS

MORGAN AWAKE.

AND SHE OPENED HER EYES.

AND SHE KIND OF TURNED HER

HEAD TOWARDS HIM.

HE CAME OVER THERE, AND HE

JUST KIND OF BENT DOWN AND

KISSED HER.

AND SAYS, I LOVE YOU, AND

SHE NODDED HER HEAD.

AFTER THE ACCIDENT, I

REMEMBER BEING IN THE

HOSPITAL ROOM.

I REMEMBER ASKING WHAT DAY

IT WAS.

THEY TOLD ME IT WAS

TUESDAY.

I THOUGHT IT WAS ALL A

DREAM.

AND THEY WERE, LIKE, NO, IT

REALLY HAPPENED.

SHE WAS IN THERAPY FOR

ABOUT A WEEK.

SHE HAD TO BE ABLE TO WALK

COMPLETELY UNATTENDED.

IT WAS REALLY HARD

BECAUSE I STOOD UP, AND THE

MOMENT I WOULD STAND UP, IT

IS KIND OF LIKE YOU'RE

SPINNING AROUND IN THE

CIRCLE 100 TIMES AND YOU

STOP.

YOU'RE, LIKE, REALLY DAZED.

THAT'S HOW I WAS.

SO IT WAS A LONG PROCESS,

BUT ONCE I GOT TO LEAVE, I

WAS SO EXCITED.

SO HAPPY TO GO.

AFTER 13 DAYS, SHE WAS

ABLE TO WALK OUT OF THE

HOSPITAL ON HER OWN TW TWO

FEET.

AS FAR AS SCHOOL GOES, WE

HAD TO HAVE A TEAM STUDY

MEETING BECAUSE THE SCHOOL

WOULD NOT ALLOW HER TO COME

BACK TO SCHOOL, WHILE SHE

HAD TO WEAR THE HELMET.

MY SWELLING -- IT LOOKED

LIKE I HAD A BONE IN THERE.

MY SWELLING WAS SO BIG.

IT WAS BIGGER THAN THE RIGHT

SIDE.

WE REACHED OUT TO OUR

COMMUNITY OF FRIENDS TO PRAY

AND ASK FOR THAT SWELLING TO

GO DOWN.

AND THE NEXT MORNING, IT

COMPLETELY WENT DOWN.

SO WHEN SHE WENT TO HAVE THE

STAPLES REMOVED, THEY

AGREED, IT WAS WONDERFUL AND

SHE WOULDN' WOULD BE ABLE

TO HAVE SURGERY.

I'M HAPPY I'M GETTING TO

GO AND PUTTING THE BONE BACK

IN MY HEAD.

I DON'T HAVE TO WEAR THIS

SILLY HELMET ANYMORE.

THAT HELMET WAS A SYMBOL OF

YOU'RE NOT INDEPENDENT.

YOU HAVE TO WEAR THIS

WHEREVER YOU GO.

WHEN THEY WHEELED HER OUT

AND WE GOT TO SEE HER FOR

THE FIRST TIME, SHE WAS SO

SWOLLEN.

HER EYES WERE CLOSED BECAUSE

THEY WERE SO SWOLLEN.

IT WAS VERY INTENSE.

AND HER PAIN LEVEL WAS SO

MUCH MORE THAN THE FIRST

TIME.

WHEN I GOT HOME, I HAD

PHYSICAL THERAPY, AND THAT

WAS INTENSE.

I GOT REALLY ANGRY.

I WAS, LIKE, WHERE IS MY

MEMORY?

WHY CAN'T I UNDERSTAND

THIS?

SHE HAD A LOT OF MAKE-UP

WORK.

WHAT WOULD NORMALLY TAKE

ME A QUICK 15 MINUTES, TOOK

ME OVER THREE HOURS.

SHE WORKED HER WAY

THROUGH IT, AND CAUGHT UP

WITHIN A FEW MONTHS.

TO HAVE HER FINALLY

GRADUATE, IT WAS HARD.

BUT TO REALIZE THAT SHE WAS

GOING TO GET TO GRADUATE

WITH HER CLASS, WITH HER

FRIENDS THAT SHE GREW UP

WITH.

I THINK EVERYONE TEARED UP

AS SHE WALKED ACROSS THAT

STAGE.

I'M VERY PROUD OF HER, AND

VERY THANKFUL TO GOD.

I AM COMPLETELY, 100%

RECOVERED NOW.

I HAVE SHORT HAIR, AND IF

YOU PULL IT AROUND, YOU CAN

KIND OF SEE A SCAR.

IF YOU FEEL AROUND, YOU CAN

FEEL THE SCREWS.

BUT I DON'T GET THOSE

HEADACHES ANYMORE.

MY MEMORY IS FINE.

THIS WAS THE HARDEST

THING I EVER WENT THROUGH IN

MY WHOLE LIFE.

WAS SEEING HER LIKE THAT.

FAITH IS NOT WHAT YOU SEE.

IT'S NOT WHAT YOU FEEL.

REAL FAITH IS BEING

COMPLETELY CONVINCED AND

ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THAT

GOD'S WORD IS TRUE.

Terry: WE WANTED YOU TO

SEE MORGAN'S STORY TODAY

BECAUSE WE WANT TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

AND HER STORY IS SUCH AN

INDICATIVE SIGN OF GOD'S

FAITHFULNESS, OF HIS LOVE

FOR HIS CHILDREN, OF HIS

HEARING OUR PRAYERS, OF HIS

ABILITY TO DO WHAT DOCTORS

CANNOT DO.

AND WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU

AND YOUR NEED TODAY.

Pat: HER MOTHER SAYS,

WE WANT YOU TO BELIEVE THAT

GOD'S WORD IS TRUE.

HERE IS SOMETHING, TERRY,

AND IT IS HEATHER.

SHE LIVED IN ARAB, ALABAMA,

AND WAS HAVING A HARD TIME

BREATHING.

AND HER TEMPERATURE REACHED

104 DEGREES.

HER MOTHER TOOK HER TO THE

E.R., WHERE THE DOCTOR

DIAGNOSED IT WAS BRONCHITIS,

AND SO ON.

TERRY GAVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, YOU HAVE A

BRONCHIAL CONDITION, AND ALL

THAT IS GOING AWAY AND THE

SWELLING IS GOING AWAY, AND

BREATHE, AND LO AND BEHOLD,

A MIRACLE TOOK PLACE.

Terry: KIMBERLY FELT A

LUMP IN HER THROAT.

BUT OVER MONTHS, IT GOT TO

THE POINT WHERE SHE COULDN'T

CATCH HER BREATH AFTER SHE

WENT FOR HER EVENING WALKS.

SHE DECIDED TO SEE A

DOCTOR.

BUT BEFORE SHE WENT, SHE

BEGAN WATCHING THIS SHOW.

AND PAT, YOU SAID, YOU'VE

GOT A STRICTER IN YOUR

THROAT.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS OPENING

THAT UP.

AND SHE THOUGHT, THAT IS FOR

ME.

SHE TOUCHED THE TELEVISION

WITH HER HAND AND HER

THROAT, AND THE NEXT MORNING

THE SWELLING WAS COMPLETELY

GONE AND SHE COULD BREATHE

NORMALLY.

Pat: FOLKS, GOD IS

ALIVE.

GOD IS ALMIGHTY.

GOD IS ALL POWERFUL.

WITH HIM, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

THERE IS NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE

WITH GOD.

I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO

PRAY.

TERRY AND I WILL JOIN HANDS,

AND WE'LL PRAY TOGETHER.

WE'LL PRAY FOR YOU AND

EVERYBODY.

WE'RE GOING TO JOIN RIGHT

NOW.

FATHER, IN JESUS' PRECIOUS

AND HOLY NAME, MAY THE POWER

OF GOD TOUCH PEOPLE'S

LIVES.

SOMEBODY HAS GOT A BONE

SPUR, I GUESS IT'S IN YOUR

HEEL.

A BONE SPUR, AND IT IS VERY

PAINFUL.

YOU SAY THIS IS A CALCIUM

DEPOSIT THAT IS IS STICKING

INTO SOMETHING.

RIGHT NOW IT IS LITERALLY

MELTING AWAY AND IT WILL BE

GONE.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE AN OCULAR PROBLEM.

I'M NOT EXACTLY SURE WHAT IT

IS, BUT IT HAS AFFECTED YOUR

VISION.

MORE THAN THAT, IT IS

UNCOMFORTABLE.

IT IS LIKE A SENSATION YOU

GET IN YOUR EYES THAT CAUSES

YOU TO RUB THEM AND IT

AFFECTS YOUR VISION.

GOD IS CLEARING THAT UP FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW.

Pat: YOU HAVE A NERVOUS

CONDITION.

YOU'RE SHAKING, AND IT'S NOT

PARKINSON'S, BUT IT ACTS

LIKE THAT.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS JUST

HEALING YOU.

THE NERVOUS AR NERVES ARE

GOING TO BE COMPLETELY

WHOLE.

THE THE NERVES ARE, LIKE, ON

FIRE.

AND THE NERVE SHEVES ARE

EXPOSED.

BUT GOD IS DOING A MIRACLE,

IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE WATCHING AND YOU'RE

FRUSTRATED BECAUSE

EVERYTHING MENTIONED IS A

PHYSICAL NEED.

AND YOU HAVE AN EMOTIONAL

AND PSYCHOLOGICAL NEED.

AN ESTRANGEMENT FROM YOUR

MOM.

GOD IS HEALING THAT.

AND WHEN HE OPENS THAT DOOR,

RECEIVE IT AND WALK THROUGH

IT.

Pat: LORD, MEET THEIR

NEEDS.

TOUCH LIVES IN JESUS' NAME.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, WE'RE

HERE.

COMING UP LATER, WE HAVE

YOUR E-MAIL.

Terry: JAZZI SAYS,

"I'VE BEEN A CHRISTIAN EVER

SINCE I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD,

AND NOW I'M 19, AND I'M

READY TO HAVE A REAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, BUT

HOW DO I DO IT?"

WE'RE GOING TO "BRING IT ON"

WITH JAZZI'S QUESTION AND

MORE.

STAY TUNED.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

A MIRACULOUS STORY OUT OF

OHIO.

THREE CLEVELAND WOMEN, WHO

WENT MISSING AROUND 10 YEARS

AGO, HAVE BEEN FOUND ALIVE.

THE WOMEN WERE FOUND IN THIS

HOUSE ON A QUIET CLEVELAND

STREET AFTER A NEIGHBOR

HEARD ONE OF THEM SCREAMING

FOR HELP.

AMANDA BERRY DISAPPEARED IN

2003, THE DAY BEFORE HER

17th BIRTHDAY.

INSIDE THAT HOUSE POLICE

FOUND GINA DEJESUS, AND

MICHELLE KNIGHT, WHO

VANISHED IN 2002 AT THE AGE

OF 21.

POLICE SAY THREE HISPANIC

BROTHERS IN THEIR 50s ARE

IN CUSTODY.

THE INVESTIGATION

CONTINUES.

THE UNITED NATIONS SAYS

SYRIAN REBELS HAVE USED

CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN THEIR

FIGHT AGAINST THE ASSAD

REGIME.

THEY FOUND EVIDENCE THAT

FREE SYRIAN ARMY USED THE

NERVE AGENT SARIN, BUT THE

UNITED NATIONS SAY THEY

CANNOT OFFER CONCRETE PROOF

ABOUT THAT.

REBEL FORCES DENY THE CLAIM,

AND THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS IT

IS HIGHLY LIKE THE THE ASSAD

REGIME WAS BEHIND THOSE

CHEMICAL ATTACKS INSTEAD.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBN

CBNNEWS.COM.

STAY TUNED, PAT AND TERRY

WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" AFTER THIS.

Terry: WE WANT TO

ANSWER SOME OF THE E-MAIL

QUESTIONS THAT YOU'VE SENT

IN, SO WE'RE GOING TO "BRING

IT ON."

JAZZI SAYS, "I'VE BEEN A

CHRISTIAN EVER SINCE I WAS

FIVE YEARS OLD, AND I'M 19

NOW.

I WAS ALWAYS TOLD TO PRAY,

READ THE BIBLE, AND I'LL GO

TO HEAVEN.

NOW THAT I'M OLDER, I'M

READY TO HAVE A REAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, BUT

HOW DO I DO IT?

WHEN I TRY, I REVERT BACK TO

MY OLD WAYS AND START

PRAYING FOR THINGS I WANT.

AM I ON THE RIGHT TRACK?"

Pat: JAZZI, I LIKE YOUR

NAME.

ANYHOW, NO, YOU'RE NOT ON

THE RIGHT TRACK.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS IS

FALL IN LOVE WITH JESUS.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE?

DO YOU HAVE SOMEBODY YOU

LOVE?

IT IS A LOVE AFFAIR.

HE DIED FOR YOU.

HE LOVES YOU.

AND YOU NEED TO GET INTO A

RELATIONSHIP WHERE YOU

WORSHIP HIM AND YOU TELL HIM

YOU LOVE HIM, AND HE TELLS

YOU HE LOVES YOU, AND HE

BEGINS TO SHARE WITH YOU THE

DEEP THINGS ON HIS HEART AND

YOU SHARE WHAT IS ON YOUR

HEART.

YOU THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE

HAS DONE AND YOU WORSHIP HIM

AND YOU ADORE HIM.

AND HE, IN TURN, WILL GIVE

YOU THE DESIRE OF YOUR

HEART.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

DEEP CALLS TO DEEP.

THAT'S WHAT PRAYER IS.

IT IS NOT SOME FORMULA.

IT IS NOT SOME MECHANICAL

THING.

IT IS A LOVE AFFAIR.

CAN YOU IMAGINE A MAN GOING

OUT WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND AND

HE SAYS, LET'S SEE WHAT THE

BOOK SAYS HERE.

I'M SUPPOSED TO SAY THIS AND

I'M SUPPOSED TO TOUCH THIS.

AND I'M SUPPOSED TO WHISPER

THAT.

NO WAY.

THERE HAS GOT TO BE SOME

SPONTANEITY SOMEWHERE.

Terry: RUTH SAYS, "THEY

PLAN TO PROSECUTE OFFICERS

IN THE ARMED FORCES IF THEY

SHARE THEIR FAITH, WILL THEY

ATTEMPT TO REDEFINE

CHAPLAINS?"

Pat: I'M NOT SURE WHO

IS BEHIND THIS.

I THINK SOME SCREW BALLS ARE

BEHIND IT.

I DON'T THINK THE ARMY WILL

GO FOR SOME OF THE EXTREME

THINGS ARE PROPOSED.

I DON'T THINK THEY WILL

REDEFINE CHAPLAINS.

THEY'VE GOT TO BE FREE.

IF THE ARMY TRIES TO REIN

THEM IN, THERE WILL BE AN

OUTCRY.

BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO TRY

TO FORCE US TO CONFORM TO

THEM.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: THIS IS PEDRO

WHO SAYS, "I'VE BEEN A

CHRISTIAN SINCE THE AGE OF

13.

I'VE SEEN PEOPLE SPEAK IN

TONGUES.

I BELIEVE THE LORD TOUCHES

PEOPLE.

BUT IN CHURCH, I SEE PEOPLE

WHO LOOK LIKE THEY'RE HAVING

SEIZURES.

THEY CLAIM IT WAS THE HOLY

SPIRIT THAT TOUCHED THEM.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT GOD IS A

GOD OF ORDER, SO I'M

QUESTIONING IF I'M IN THE

RIGHT CHURCH, AND IF THESE

ACTIONS ARE FROM GOD."

Pat: IT SOUNDS LIKE

YOU'RE IN THE WRONG CHURCH.

LOOK, WE HAVE FLESH AND WE

HAVE SPIRIT.

AND WHEN THE FLESH RESISTS

THE SPIRIT, YOU'LL FIND ALL

KINDS OF PHYSICAL

MANIFESTATIONS.

FOR EXAMPLE, IT IS LIKE A

WIRE.

IF YOU HAVE HEAVY RESISTANCE

IN A WIRE, IT WILL GET HOT.

IF THE WIRE WILL CONDUCT

ELECTRICITY, WHICH IT IS

SUPPOSED TO, IT WON'T GET

HOT.

YOU DON'T WANT YOUR WIRES IN

YOUR HOUSE GETTING HOT.

YOU WANT THEM TO LIGHT

LIGHTS.

THE SAME THING WITH THE

POWER OF GOD.

IT IS THERE TO HEAL.

IT IS TO BLESS.

IT IS TO ILLUMINATE.

IT IS NOT TO HAVE PEOPLE

JUMP AND BARK AND ROLL ON

THE FLOOR AND CLIMB THE

WALL.

THAT IS FLESHLY

MANIFESTATIONS.

GET OUT OF THAT PLACE.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER

WHO SAID, "MY MOTHER SAID IT

WAS PROPHESIED BEFORE MY

BIRTH THAT I WOULD BECOME A

PREACHER.

A MAN APPROACHED MY MOTHER

TO TELL HER THIS.

HE SAID HE HAD BEEN LED BY

GOD ACROSS A FEW STATES TO

GIVE HER THIS MESSAGE.

WOULD GOD REALLY COMMUNICATE

SOMETHING OF THIS NATURE?"

Pat: YES, HE CERTAINLY

WILL.

I DON'T KNOW THAT PARTICULAR

GUY WAS GOD'S MESSENGER, BUT

HE CERTAINLY WILL.

I READ TODAY HOW GOD SENT AN

ANGEL.

HIS NAME WAS GABRIEL, AND HE

SAID I HAVE COME TO TELL YOU

THAT YOUR WIFE IS GOING TO

HAVE A BABY.

AND HE WILL BE GREAT IN THE

SIGHT OF THE LORD.

THE SAME ANGEL CAME TO A

YOUNG VIRGIN, WHO'S NAME IS

MARY, AND SAID YOU WILL

BRING FORTH A SON WHO WILL

BE CALLED THE SON OF GOD.

SO THESE MESSENGERS DO

HAPPEN.

IN YOUR CASE, I DON'T KNOW

IF THIS GUY WAS FOR REAL OR

NOT.

I WOULD GIVE IT CREDENCE

UNTIL YOU FIND OUT

OTHERWISE.

Terry: WHAT WOULD A

YOUNG PERSON DO WHEN A WORD

HAS BEEN SPOKEN OVER THEM

LIKE THAT.

YOU DON'T BECOME A PREACHER

BECAUSE A WORD --

Pat: NO.

YOU'LL HAVE TO GET A WITNESS

IN YOUR OWN HEART.

IN THE MOUTH OF TWO OR MORE

WITNESSES, EVERYTHING WILL

BE ESTABLISHED.

GOD WILL HAVE TO SHOW IT TO

YOU.

Terry: LISA SAYS, "MY

12 YEARS OLD SAYS IT TAKES A

WHILE BEFORE GOD HEARS OUR

PRAYERS.

SHE SAYS IT TAKES TIME FOR

THE SOUND TO TRAVEL.

DOES GOD HEAR PRAYERS RIGHT

AWAY?"

Pat: YOU'RE KID IS TOO

SMART.

I THINK IT IS LIKE THE AIR

AROUND US.

IT DOESN'T TAKE TIME FOR YOU

TO BREATHE IN THE AIR.

THE SPEED OF THOUGHT IS

INSTANT.

IT IS FASTER THAN THE SPEED

OF LIGHT.

I CAN THINK TODAY ABOUT A

DISTANT GALAXY THAT IS

THOUSANDS OF LIGHT YEARS

AWAY, AND I CAN VISUALIZE IT

IMMEDIATELY.

BUT WHEN WE PRAYER, THE HOLY

SPIRIT, GOD, IS WITHIN US.

THE FATHER IS IN US.

SO IN A SENSE, WE'RE TALKING

TO SOMEBODY RIGHT HERE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT A

WHILE FOR YOUR PRAYER TO GO

THROUGH ALL OF THE

CHANNELS.

SO TELL YOUR KID, YOU KNOW,

HE'S GOT ONE SCIENCE, BUT HE

NEEDS ANOTHER ONE.

ALL RIGHT.

WHAT ELSE?

Terry: THE HEAVENLY

ONE.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR YOUR E-MAILS

TODAY.

BUT WE DO THANK YOU FOR

THEM.

WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.

UP NEXT, CHURCH WAS THE ONLY

PLACE SHE FELT SAFE, AND HER

MINISTER WAS THE ONLY MAN

SHE TRUSTED.

I WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED

BY THE PASTOR.

I WAS DEVASTATED.

I REMEMBER PRAYING TO GOD,

SAYING, IF THIS IS WHAT

CHURCH IS LIKE, THEN I DON'T

WANT ANY PART OF IT.

Terry: SEE WHAT

HAPPENED WHEN HER HUSBAND

DOESN'T BELIEVE HER, AND HE

REFUSES TO LEAVE THAT

CHURCH.

Terry: KATRINA SWEET

WAS 11 YEARS OLD WHEN HER

STEPFATHER FIRST RAPED HER.

BUT SHE WAS A MARRIED WOMAN

WHEN THE NEXT MAN ASSAULTED

HER, AND SHE WAS IN THE WON

PLACE WHERE SHE HAD GROWN TO

FEEL SAFE, HER CHURCH.

WITH THE ONE MAN IN THE

WORLD SHE COMPLETELY

TRUSTED, HER PASTOR.

Reporter: KATRINA SWEET

SPENT MOST OF HER LIFE

SEARCHING FOR STABILITY.

WHEN SHE WAS ONLY 11, HER

STEPFATHER BEGAN MOLESTING

HER.

HE TOLL MY INNOCENCE.

HE TOOK MY INNOCENCE FROM

ME.

HE TOOK MY ABILITY TO

TRUST.

I BECAME VERY AFRAID, AFRAID

TO DO THE SIMPLE THINGS.

AFRAID TO BE IN A ROOM BY

MYSELF.

AFRAID TO SLEEP AT NIGHT.

Reporter: CHURCH WAS

THE ONLY PLACE KATRINA FOUND

SOLACE.

I GREW UP IN CHURCH.

AND WHENEVER I WAS THERE, I

ALWAYS FELT THIS INCREDIBLE

PEACE.

Reporter: KATRINA

FINALLY TOLD HER MOTHER.

HER MOTHER REFUSED TO

LISTEN.

NO ONE SAID A WORD.

I FELT REJECTED.

I FELT ABANDONED BY MY

MOTHER.

I FELT THAT SHE WAS PLACING

HER HUSBAND OVER MY

PROTECTION AND MY SAFETY.

Reporter: THE PAIN

BECAME TOO MUCH, AND SHE

MOVED IN WITH HER

GRANDMOTHER.

HER ABUSER WAS GONE, BUT THE

PAIN LINGERED.

IT LEFT A VOID IN ME OF

WANTING TO BE LOVED, WANTING

TO BE AFFIRMED.

I WANTED SOMEONE TO LOOK AT

ME AS BEING SPECIAL.

SO THE FIRST GUY WHO SAID,

HEY, YOU'RE PRETTY, YOU'RE

BEAUTIFUL, THEN I GAVE

MYSELF TO HIM.

Reporter: BEFORE LONG,

KATRINA BECAME PREGNANT.

BY NOW SHE WAS TIRED,

CONFUSED, AND HURT.

SHE THOUGHT ABOUT THE PEACE

SHE FELT IN CHURCH AS A

CHILD, AND SHE GAVE HER LIFE

TO CHRIST.

OVER TIME, KATRINA'S FAITH

GREW.

SHE MARRIED A CHRISTIAN MAN

AND HAD ANOTHER CHILD.

SHE ALSO HELPED THE PASTOR

WITH SECRETARIAL WORK.

I SAW HIM AS A FATHER

FIGURE.

I SAW HIM AS SOMEONE THAT I

COULD TRUST.

Reporter: BUT SOON THAT

IMAGE WAS DESTROYED.

I WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED

BY THE PASTOR.

I WAS DEVASTATED.

I THOUGHT CHURCH WAS

DIFFERENT.

I THOUGHT CHURCH PEOPLE WERE

DIFFERENT.

I REMEMBER PRAYING TO GOD,

SAYING, IF THIS IS WHAT

CHURCH IS LIKE, THEN I DON'T

WANT ANY.

I DON'T WANT ANY PART OF

IT.

Reporter: TO MAKE

THINGS WORSE, HER HUSBAND

DIDN'T BELIEVE HER.

HE REFUSED TO LEAVE THE

CHURCH.

WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I

BLAMED MY MOTHER FOR NOT

PROTECTING ME OR PEOPLE IN

MY FAMILY.

WHEN THAT HAPPENED WITH THE

PASTOR, I DID -- I BLAMED

GOD.

Reporter: KATRINA

DIVORCED HER HUSBAND AND

LEFT WITH HER TWO CHILDREN.

AFTER THAT, SHE BECAME

INVOLVED IN A SERIES OF

RELATIONSHIPS.

EACH TIME SHE WANTED THE

SAME THING, TWO FEEL SAFE,

WANTED, LOVED.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WITH HER

BOYFRIEND WHEN HIS PHONE

RANG.

HE LOOKED AT THE CALLER

I.D., AND I SAID WHO WAS

THAT?

AND HE WHISPERED SOFTLY IN

MY EAR, AND HE SAID YOUR

REPLACEMENT.

YOUR REPLACEMENT.

I CAN'T EVEN DESCRIBE TO YOU

WHAT THAT DID TO ME AND HOW

THAT MADE ME FEEL.

I'M THINKING THE WHOLE TIME

HOW UGLY I WAS, HOW USELESS

I WAS.

I'M WITHOUT PURPOSE.

NO ONE WOULD EVER WANT YOU.

WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE.

JUST END IT.

JUST END IT.

Reporter: KATRINA LEFT

THE HOUSE AND DROVE TO A

BRIDGE.

I REMEMBER SITTING IN MY

CAR, LOOKING AT THE BRIDGE,

THINKING THIS IS IT.

WHY NOT JUST END IT HERE.

SITTING IN THE CAR POUNDING

ON THE STEERING WHEEL.

WEEPING BECAUSE I FELT JUST

SO USELESS.

Reporter: BUT HER TEARS

WERE INTERRUPTED BY THOUGHTS

OF HER CHILDREN.

I ENVISION MY CHILDREN

SEEING MY BODY PULLED.

I DIDN'T WANT THAT IMAGE TO

BE WITH THEM FOR THE

REMAINDER OF THEIR LIVES.

Reporter: KATRINA KNEW

SHE NEEDED GOD.

I REMEMBER PRAYING ONE

WORD, I CRIED ONE WORD,

HELP.

HELP IS WHAT I SAID.

I FEEL LIKE GOD HEARD MY CRY

FOR HELP, AND I DIDN'T KNOW

HOW MY LIFE WAS GOING TO

TURN OUT.

I JUST HAD A SENSE THAT

EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO BE

OKAY.

Reporter: SHE FOUND A

CHURCH, AND A WOMAN THERE

INVITED HER TO A WOMEN'S

RETREAT.

THERE SHE REDEDICATED HER

LIFE TO CHRIST.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND IT

ALL THEN, I DIDN'T HAVE THE

FULL PICTURE, BUT I KNEW AS

TIME WENT ON, GOD WAS WITH

ME.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, I KNEW

THAT I HAD A RELATIONSHIP

WITH HIM AND THAT HE WAS

WITH ME.

AND I WANTED TO LEARN AS

MUCH AS I COULD LEARN ABOUT

HIM.

Reporter: TODAY KATRINA

IS AN AUTHOR, MOTIVATIONAL

SPEAKER, AND FOUNDER OF A

NON-PROFIT CALLED "PAT."

SHE SAYS SHE IS GRATEFUL

THAT GOD HEALED HER

EMOTIONALLY SO THAT SHE CAN

SHARE CHRIST'S LOVE WITH

OTHERS.

I NEVER THOUGHT ANYTHING

GOOD WOULD HAPPEN TO ME.

I ONLY SAW GOOD THINGS

HAPPENING TO ANOTHER

PEOPLE.

I FEEL THAT GOD HAS RESTORED

EVERYTHING THAT I'VE LOST.

EVERYTHING THAT I THOUGHT

WOULDN'T BE, GOD HAS AND IS

MAKING IT INTO REALITY.

Terry: AND GOD CAN

RESTORE YOUR BROKEN AREAS,

TOO.

THAT'S WHY THEY CALL HIM THE

REDEEMER.

HE BRINGS BACK TO LIFE,

GIVES BACK THAT WHICH WAS

TAKEN FROM YOU.

THE BIBLE SAYS WE ARE

CREATED, AND THAT GOD LOVED

US SO MUCH THAT WE ARE

CREATED IN HIS OWN IMAGE AND

LIKENESS.

HE PUT A LITTLE BIT OF

HIMSELF IN US.

HE WANTS US TO HUNGER AFTER

HIM.

BUT THROUGHOUT LIFE, YOU

KNOW, THE ENEMY OF GOD COMES

ALONGMENT ANALONG.

AND WHAT IS HIS GREATEST

DELIGHT?

TO MAR THAT IMAGE.

TO MAKE US QUESTION IF THERE

IS A GOD WHO LOVES US, TO

SEPARATE US FROM HIM.

AND YET JESUS GAVE US THIS

PROMISE.

HE SAID, "I'LL NEVER LEAVE

YOU OR FORSAKE YOU."

HE IS THE ALPHA AND OMEGA.

THE LOVE WE LOOK FOR IN

OTHER PLACES, WHETHER IT IS

BECAUSE OUR BROKENNESS OR

JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE A NEED

TO BE LOVED, WE CAN ONLY

FIND IN HIM.

THERE IS A HOLE INSIDE OF

US, CREATED TO BE FILLED BY

THE ONE WHO CREATED US.

WHO CREATED THE WHOLE

UNIVERSE.

AND LOVED US ENOUGH TO MAKE

IT A GIFT TO US.

IF YOU'RE BROKEN TODAY, IF

YOU'RE LISTENING TO

KATRINA'S STORY, AND YOU'RE

SAYING, I JUST CAN'T HANG ON

ANYMORE.

I'VE TRIED IT ALL, I'VE DONE

IT ALL, AND NOTHING WORKS.

IF YOU HAVEN'T FALLEN IN

LOVE WITH JESUS, LIKE PAT

TALKED ABOUT EARLIER IN THE

SHOW, THEN YOU HAVEN'T TRIED

THE ONLY THING THAT WORKS,

BUT YOU CAN TODAY.

YOU CAN START RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS WHAT YOU DO: YOU

SAY, JESUS, I'M A SINNER.

I HAVE BLOWN IT.

I HAVE MADE MISTAKES.

I'VE FALLEN SHORT OF THE

MARK.

I NEED YOU.

FORGIVE MY SINS.

FORGIVE MY SINS.

COME INTO MY LIFE.

COME INTO MY HEART.

I WANT TO KNOW YOU.

I WANT YOU TO BE THE LORD OF

MY LIFE AND THE SAVIOR OF MY

SOUL.

FILL ME WITH YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT.

TEACH ME YOUR WAYS.

AND ASK THAT IN JESUS'

NAME.

IT'S A CONVERSATION.

JUST OPEN YOUR HEART AND

BEAR YOUR SOLE TO HIM AND

INVITE HIM IN.

HE IS THE REDEEMER, THE

HEALER, THE ONE AND ONLY ONE

WHO CAN MAKE YOU WHOLE.

IF YOU HAVE A NEED YOU WOULD

LIKE SOMEONE TO PRAY ABOUT

WITH YOU, CALL THAT

TOLL-FREE NUMBER ON YOUR

SCREEN, 1-800-759-0700.
