EAT SOME FRESH

VEGETABLES.

Wendy: FARM FRESH IN

THE MIDDLE OF A FOOD

DESERT.

I THINK THIS IS IS REALLY

WONDERFUL.

Wendy: PLUS, IN

INVESTMENT GURU SHARES HOW

TO THRIVE IN TOUGH TIMES.

AND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS FROM A

NAGGING COUGH.

I COUGHED ALL NIGHT

LONG.

Wendy: HER BREATH OF

FRESH AIR.

AND IT WAS JUST THAT

FAST.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF ACID

TURK, TURKEY BECOME A

SECULAR STATE.

NOT AN ISLAMIC STATE, BUT A

SECULAR STATE.

AND NOW THE RULING

AUTHORITIES ARE TRYING TO

TURN IT INTO AN ISLAMIC

STATE, AND A LOT OF THE

TURKS DON'T LIKE IT.

SO TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE HAVE TAKEN TO THE

STREETS.

THEY'RE PROTESTING AGAINST

THEIR GOVERNMENT'S ATTEMPT

TO TURN THEIR COUNTRY INTO

AN ISLAMIC STATE.

Terry: HUNDREDS OF RIOT

POLICE WITH WATER CANNONS

LINED AROUND THE PRIME

MINISTER'S OFFICE, AND A MAN

DIED IN ONE OF THE

PROTESTS.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THIS LOOK

AT THE UNFOLDING DRAMA.

George: IT BEGAN AS A

PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION OVER

A DISPUTED CONSTRUCTION

PROJECT.

[YELLING]

George: BUT QUICKLY

ESCALATED INTO NATIONWIDE

PROTESTS AGAINST THE TURKISH

GOVERNMENT.

[YELLING]

George: CROWDS CHANTING

"JUMP, JUMP, IF YOU'RE NOT

FOR TAYYECP."

THIS CROWD WANTS HIM AND HIS

GOVERNMENT GONE.

TENS OF THOUSANDS ARE

ACCUSING THE PRIME MINISTER

OF TRYING TO IMPOSE STRICT

ISLAMIC REFORMS ON A COUNTRY

THAT HAS DEEP SECULAR

TRADITIONS.

THIS IS NOT TAKSIM

SQUARE.

THIS IS RED SQUARE.

THIS IS IS THE SQUARE OF THE

REVOLUTION.

WE WILL BE HERE UNTIL HE

LEAVES.

George: SINCE COMING TO

POWER IN 2002, ERDOGAN HAS

LIFTED THE BAN ON WOMEN

WEARING HEAD SCARVES, AND

RECENTLY PASSED A LAW

RESTRICTING THE SALE AND

ADVERTISING OF ALCOHOL,

SIGNS, PROTESTORS SAY, OF A

CREEPING ISLAMIZATION OF

TURKEY.

WE ARE CONTINUING THIS

RESISTANCE.

IT STARTED THREE TO FOUR

DAYS AGO.

PEOPLE DON'T SEE WHAT IS

HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY.

George: DEMONSTRATIONS

HAVE HIT 48 CITIES ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

POLICE ARE ACCUSED OF BEING

HEAVY-HANDED.

TURKEY IS A KEY AMERICAN

ALLY IN THE REGION, BUT THE

U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE

CALLED ERDOGAN TO SHOW

RESTRAIN.

WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT

THE REPORTS OF EXCESSIVE USE

OF FORCE BY THE POLICE.

George: AS THE HEART OF

THIS CRISIS IS A BATTLE

BETWEEN SECULAR,

LIBERAL-MINDED TURKS, AND

THOSE WHO WANT TO TURN THE

COUNTRY MORE ISLAMIC.

Pat: REMEMBER, THE

OTTOMAN EMPIRE WAS THE POWER

HOURS, AND WHEN IT FELL,

TURKEY WAS CALLED THE SICK

MAN OF EUROPE.

BUT IT'S EUROPEAN.

AND IT IS A BRIDGE BETWEEN

THE WEST AND THE MIDDLE

EAST.

AND IT HAS GOTTEN MORE AND

MORE EUROPEAN.

THEY HAVE A THRIVING STOCK

MARKET.

THEY HAVE THRIVING

BUSINESSES, AND THEY DON'T

WANT TO GO BACK TO ISLAM.

SO ERDOGAN HAS MADE A

MISTAKE.

AND, WELL, WE WISH THE

REBELS WELL.

HERE AT HOME, THE CRAZY MAN

WHO SHOUTED ALLAH AKBAR WHEN

HE BEGAN KILLING PEOPLE OUT

IN TEXAS AT FORT HOOD.

HE NOW SAYS HE'S GOING TO BE

HIS OWN LAWYER.

AND LEE WEBB HAS MORE ON

THAT STORY FROM THE CBN NEWS

ROOM.

Lee: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

NIDAL ASSAD IS GOING TO USE

THE LEGAL STRATEGY CALLED

"THE DEFENSE OF OTHERS."

HE MAY ARGUE HE WAS TRYING

TO PROTECT FELLOW MUSLIMS IN

AFGHANISTAN FROM THE U.S.

SOLDIERS ON HIS BASE IN

TEXAS.

THOSE SOLDIERS WERE IS SET

TO GO TO AFGHANISTAN, WHERE

THEY MAY HAVE FOUGHT OTHER

MUSLIMS.

ASSAD OPPOSED THE IRAQ WAR

IN AFGHANISTAN.

HE WAS SET TO BE DEPLOYED IN

THE WEEKS BEFORE THAT MASS

SHOOTING.

VICTIMS ARE OUTRAGED THAT

THE FORMER ARMY PSYCHIATRIST

WILL NOW BE ALLOWED TO

QUESTION THE SAME WOUNDED

SOLDIERS HE IS ACCUSED OF

SHOOTING.

THEY FEAR HE WILL TRY TO

INTIMIDATE WITNESSES.

Pat: THIS GUY IS IS

CRAZY, AND THE PSYCHIATRIST

WHO STUDIED HIM UNDERSTOOD

HE WAS CRAZY, MENTALLY

DERANGED.

HE NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN

PUT ON ACTIVE DUTY OR NEAR

WEAPONS, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN

HE KILLS AMERICAN SERVICEMEN

WITH THAT MUSLIM SHOUT THAT

GOD IS GREAT.

THEY SAID WELL, IT IS AN

INSTANCE OF CIVIL UNREST.

IT IS NO SUCH THING.

IT IS MORE EVIDENCE OF THE

MUSLIM PHILOSOPHY THAT HAS

TAKEN OVER THESE PEOPLE.

TO ALLOW HIM TO RANT IN

COURT AND TO ABUSE THE VERY

PEOPLE THAT HE SHOT, IT'S

HORRIBLE TO EVEN

CONTEMPLATE.

LEE?

Lee: CONSERVATIVE

GROUPS TARGETED BY THE

I.R.S. ARE TELLING THEIR

SIDE OF THE STORY TO

CONGRESS.

SEVERAL OF THE GROUPS SAY

THEIR APPLICATIONS FOR TAX

EXEMPT STATUS WERE DELAYED,

AND AGENTS ASKED IN

INTRUSIVE AND UNNECESSARY

QUESTIONS ABOUT WHO GAVE

THEM MONEY, THEIR POLITICAL

VIEWS, AND EVEN HOW THEY

PRAYED.

MEMBERS OF SIX OF THE GROUPS

ARE TESTIFYING BEFORE THE

HOUSE WAYS AND MEANS

COMMITTEE.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS

CONDUCTING A SEPARATE

CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION.

ACTING I.R.S. COMMISSION

DANIEL WOREFAL SAYS HE KNOWS

THE AGENCY HAS TO CORRECT

ITS PROBLEMS.

THE AGENCY STANDS READY

TO CONFRONT THE PROBLEMS

THAT OCCURRED, HOLD

ACCOUNTABLE THOSE WHO ACTED

INAPPROPRIATELY.

Lee: BUT REPUBLICANS

WANT TO SEE JUST WHAT ACTION

THE I.R.S. WILL TAKE.

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE

ANTHONY SCALICE WARNS THAT

THE HIGH COURT'S RULING ON A

D.N.A. CASE COULD LEAD TO A

POLICE STATE.

THE COURT RULED THAT THE

POLICE COULD TAKE D.N.A.

SAMPLES FROM SUSPECTS WANTED

FOR SERIES CRIMES WITHOUT A

WARRANT.

28 STATES AND THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT NOW TAKE D.N.A.

SWABS AFTER ARREST.

PRIVACY ADVOCATES ARGUE THAT

TAKING A SUSPECT'S D.N.A.

WITHOUT A SEARCH WARRANT

VIOLATES THE FOURTH

AMENDMENT.

THE JUDGE WROTE, NIGH,

"MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT,

AS AN ENTIRELY PREDICTABLE

CONSEQUENCE OF TODAY'S

DECISION, YOUR D.N.A. CAN BE

TAKEN AND ENTERED INTO A

DATA BASE IF YOU'RE EVER

ARRESTED, RIGHTLY OR

WRONGLY, AND FOR WHATEVER

REASON."

PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL MEET

WITH CHINA'S LEADERS, AND

THE WHITE HOUSE SEES THAT AS

A TOP TRADE.

IT COMES DAYS AFTER CHINESE

HACKERS PRODUCED A

STAGGERING SECURITY BREACH.

Reporter: THE CYBERWAR

WITH CHINA IS BEING CALLED

THE GREATEST NATIONAL

SECURITY CHALLENGE FACING

THE U.S.

NOW AFTER MONTHS OF SECURITY

BREACHES INVOLVING CHINESE

HACKERS, THE OFFICIALS SAY

THE BLUEPRINTS OF AT LEAST

29 U.S. CRITICAL WEAPONS

SYSTEM HAVE BEEN

COMPROMISED.

THAT INCLUDES THE BLACKHAWK

HOSPITAL, AND EVEN

HELICOPTER, AND EVEN THE

STATE-OF-THE-ART EQUIPMENT.

HOW DO YOU LET CHINA

ATTACK OUR CARRIERS?

HOW DO YOU PRESERVE CHINA'S

I.C.B. M.s FROM U.S.

MISSILE DEFENSE.

HOW DO YOU GET ADVANTAGE IN

THE AIR AND IN THE SEA.

Reporter: A STUDY

PUBLISHED BY THE "WASHINGTON

POST" SAYS THE U.S.

SUSTAINED STAGGERING

LOSSES.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS

CALLED ON CHINA TO STOP

CYBERTHEFT.

THE U.S. MILITARY BELIEVE IT

IS PART OF THE PEOPLE'S

LIBERATION ARMY HIGHEST

COMMAND.

IT REALLY NARROWS THE GAP

AND SHAPES THE ODDS IN

CHINA'S DIRECTIONMENT WE

STILL ARE MILITARILY

SUPERIOR, NO DOUBT ABOUT

THAT, BUT WE'RE NOT AS

SUPERIOR AS WE WERE BEFORE

ALL OF THIS HAPPENED.

THERE IS SOME SERIOUS RISK

AS A RESULT OF THIS.

THIS IS SOMETHING WE

RAISED VERY DIRECTLY WITH

THE CHINESE, AND WE'RE GOING

TO DO SO THROUGH DIPLOMATIC

CHANNELS AND BE VERY

CONSISTENT.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Lee: PAT, WHERE DO YOU

THINK OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH

CHINA SHOULD GO?

Pat: I THINK IT SHOULD

BE FRIENDLY, AND WE SHOULD

DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO

CULTIVATE WARM RELATIONS.

BUT THE CHINESE ARE SAYING

YOUR NATIONAL SECURITY

AGENCY SPIES ON US ALL OF

THE TIME.

WE HAVE ONE OF THE MOST

SOPHISTICATED SYSTEMS.

AND IT TAKES IN DATA BYTES

FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.

WHAT WE SHOULD PROBABLY DO

IS -- YOU KNOW, THEY USED TO

HAVE LETTERS OF MARK THAT

THEY GIVE TO PRIVATEERS TO

GO OUT AND RAISE THE ENEMY

SHIPS.

I THINK WE SHOULD GIVE SUCH

LETTERS TO SOME OF THE

COMPUTER HACKERS AND SAY YOU

GO HAVE AT THE CHINESE AND

SEE WHAT YOU CAN FIND OUT.

I THINK WE OUGHT TO HAVE

SOME DEFENSE.

THE BEST DEFENSE IS A GOOD

OFFENSE.

I THINK WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE

THESE PEOPLE ARE JUST

VIOLATING ALL OF THE NORMS.

BUT THEY SAY WE'RE DOING

IT -- THEY SAY THE UNITED

STATES IS DOING IT, TOO.

AND THE TRUTH IS WE ARE.

BUT I'M SURE WE COULD COME

UP WITH A STOCK NET WE COULD

INSERT INTO THE CHINESE

COMPUTERS THAT WOULD THROW

SOME OF THEIR CALCULATIONS

OFF A LITTLE BIT AND SLOW

DOWN THEIR PROGRESS.

OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE

CHINESE -- WE'RE ONE OF THE

TWO GREAT POWERS IN THE

WORLD AND WE DON'T WANT A

WAR WITH THEM AND THEY DON'T

WANT A WAR WITH US.

LET'S TRY TO BE NICE AND

MAKE FRIENDS.

Lee: PAT, MORE THAN

HALF OF THE PEOPLE DIAGNOSED

WITH A NEW VIRUS HAVE DIED,

AND DOCTORS HAVE WARNED IT

IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME

BEFORE IT ARRIVES HERE IN

THE U.S.

Reporter: THE WORLD'S

LEADING HEALTH OFFICIALS ARE

FRANTICALLY STUDYING A NEW

MYSTERY VIRUS.

IT IS BEING CALLED MERS.

SO FAR ITS VICTIMS ALL HAVE

ONE THING IN COMMON: THEY'VE

EITHER TRAVELLED TO THE

MIDDLE EAST OR COME IN VERY

CLOSE CONTACT WITH SOMEONE

WHO DID.

WE REALLY NEED, AS FAST

AS POSSIBLE, TO LEARN HOW TO

CONTROL THIS VIRUS.

WE HAVE TO TRY TO RUN FASTER

THAN THE VIRUS DOES.

Reporter: 49 CASES OF

THE NEW DISEASE HAVE BEEN

REPORTED SINCE JUNE.

27 OF THOSE CASES HAVE

DIED.

THAT'S A 52% MORTALITY

RATE.

THE FIRST CASES WERE

REPORTED IN SAUDI ARABIA.

BUT ALREADY PEOPLE IN AT

LEAST SEVEN COUNTRIES HAVE

BECOME INFECTED.

HEALTH EXPERTS COMPARE THE

VIRUS TO SARS, THE DEADLY

RESPIRATORY VIRUS THAT TOOK

OFF NEARLY 10 YEARS AGO,

SPREADING FIRST BETWEEN 12

HOTEL GUESTS, AND THEN

ACROSS THE ENTIRE GLOBE

AFTER THOSE GUESTS GOT ON

AIRPLANES.

WITHIN NINE MONTHS, THERE

WERE MORE THAN 8,000 CASES

AND MORE THAN 700 DEATHS.

FOR NOW, RESEARCHERS REMAIN

CLUELESS.

THEY KNOW THAT THE SYMPTOMS

OF MERS INCLUDE FEVER,

CHILLS, AND MUSCLE ACHES.

LATER, BREATHING PROBLEMS.

BUT IT IS STILL UNCLEAR WHAT

THE HOST ANIMAL OF THE VIRUS

IS AND HOW IT IS SPREAD TO

HUMANS.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Lee: A MOTHER IN

SCOTLAND DEFIED THE ODDS BY

GIVING BIRTH TO HER THIRD

SET OF TWINS.

DOCTORS SAY THE CHANCES OF

DOING THAT ARE 500,000 TO

ONE.

TARRYN ROGERS GAVE BIRTH TO

TWIN DAUGHTERS AFTER HAVE

TWO SETS OF TWIN BOYS, AND

THEY'RE AGES 12 AND 14.

SHE HISTORY HESHE SAYS HER

HUSBAND DID NOT BELIEVE HER

WHEN SHE BROKE THE NEWS.

THEY PLAN TO GET A BIGGER

CAR AND CONVERT THE LOFT IN

THEIR HOME INTO BEDROOMS.

Pat: IT IS OBVIOUSLY

THE SCOTS ARE GOING TO RULE

THE WORLD.

THEY'RE ON THEIR WAY TO IT.

TERRY, I HAVE TO MAKE A

CORRECTION, AND LEE POINTED

OUT TO ME THAT PSYCHIATRIST

IN THE ARMY ARE NOT AP

APPOINTED.

BUT ASSAD HAD A WEAPON, SO

HE GOT ONE.

BUT HE WASN'T ISSUED A

WEAPON BY THE UNITED STATES,

FROM WHAT WE GATHER.

Terry: UP NEXT, THEY

CAN'T GO TO THE FARM, SO THE

FARM IS COMING TO THEM.

I THINK IT IS A BLESSING

FOR SOME PEOPLE BECAUSE

EVERYBODY DOESN'T HAVE

THIS.

Terry: MEET THE MAN WHO

IS BRINGING FRESH FOOD INTO

THE INNER CITY AFTER THIS.

Pat: DID YOU READ IN

THE NEWS RECENTLY THAT THE

BERRIES FROM A HEALTH FOOD

FARM WERE SOLD BY COSTCO IN

CALIFORNIA AND A COUPLE OF

WESTERN STATES, AND THEY

CONTAIN HEPATITIS.

Terry: REALLY?

I DID NOT HEAR THAT.

Pat: I LIKE THEIR

BERRIES, AND I ENJOY THEIR

BERRIES, SO I DON'T WANT TO

DOWN PLAY COSTCO.

Terry: WASH THEIR

BERRIES.

YOU SHOULD WASH ALL FRUITS.

Pat: NOT THEIR FROZEN

BERRIES.

THESE ARE KIRKLAND.

IT IS SOME KIND OF AN

ORGANIC FARM AND THEY HAD

HEPATITIS.

BUT THE QUESTION IS: WHAT DO

YOU WONDER ABOUT THE FOOD

YOU'RE EATING?

WE HAVE ALL OF THESE

SCARES.

BUT HOW ABOUT WHEN YOU DON'T

HAVE ENOUGH OF IT?

YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW, AND

THAT'S WHY SO MANY PEOPLE

HAVE GONE BACK TO BUYING

FOOD THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY,

FROM LOCAL FOLKS THEY CAN

TRUST.

THIS IS A FASCINATING STORY

THAT OUR LORI JOHNSON FOUND

IN WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE

STATE CAPITAL OF VIRGINIA,

RICHMOND.

HERE IS LORI.

Reporter: EARLY IN THE

MORNING, MARK LILY DRIVES

HIS FARMERS' MARKET ON

WHEELS FROM RICHMOND,

VIRGINIA, TO THE

COUNTRYSIDE.

HE STOPS AT A NUMBER OF

FAMILY FARMS TO PICK UP THE

FOOD HE'LL SELL A LITTLE

LATER WHEN HE RETURNS TO THE

CITY.

AND TALK ABOUT FRESH, THESE

MELONS WERE ON THE VINE AT

SUNRISE AND WILL BE ON

SOMEONE'S DINNER TABLE AT

SUNSET.

MOST TIMES IT IS NOT

SPRAYED WITH HEAVY

CHEMICALS.

AND IT'S VERY LOW INTENSIVE

FARMING.

IT IS NOT INDUSTRIALIZED

FARMING.

THERE IS NOT A WHOLE LOT OF

PESPESTICIDES OR

HERBICIDES.

THE SMALLER FARMS ARE

ROTATING THEIR CROPS.

THE SOIL HAS MORE NUTRIENTS

IN IT.

Reporter: LOCAL PRODUCE

IS ALSO HEALTHY BECAUSE IT

IS PICKED RIPE WHEN VITAMINS

ARE AT THEIR PEAK.

ON THE OTHER HAND, PRODUCE

THAT IS SHIPPED LONG

DISTANCES IS PICKED EARLY

AND OFTEN SPRAYED WITH

CHEMICAL RIPEN ERS.

THEY PUT ALL KINDS OF

PRESERVATIVES AND ADDITIVES

ON THE FOOD.

I'VE EVEN HEARD OF THEM

SPRAY PAINTING THE FOOD TO

GIVE IT COLOR.

Reporter: AND MARK ALSO

GOES LOCAL FOR DAIRY,

LIVESTOCK AND POULTRY.

IT TAKES LESS FUEL TO

TRANSPORT THE FOOD FROM FARM

TO MARKET.

THE FARTHEREST THAT MARK

TRAVELS IS 150 MILES FOR

PURE MAPLE SYRUP AND

ORGANIC, WHOLE GRAIN BREAD.

THEN AFTER HE COLLECTS THE

FOOD, HE HEADS BACK TO THE

CITY, THE INNER CITY.

THIS ROVING FARMERS' MARKET

MAKES ITS STOPS IN SO-CALLED

FOOD DESERTS, URBAN AREAS

WHERE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

WITHOUT TRANSPORTATION LIVE

MORE THAN A MILE FROM A

GROCERY STORE.

HERE FOLKS HAVE LITTLE

CHOICE BUT TO BUY WHATEVER

UNHEALTHY PROCESSED FOOD IS

IS AVAILABLE AT A

CONVENIENCE STORE NEXT TO

THE CIGARETTES AND LOTTERY

TICKETS.

YOU ALL WANT TO EAT SOME

FRESH VEGETABLES?

YES.

I HAVE A WHOLE BUS FULL

OF STUFF.

I THINK IT IS A BLESSING

FOR CERTAIN PEOPLE.

BECAUSE EVERYBODY DON'T HAVE

A RIDE.

AND THIS IS MORE HEALTHY.

Reporter: MARK TEACHES

HIS COSTUMERS ABOUT WHAT HE

SELLS AND WHAT HE DOESN'T.

I'VE HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE

ASK ME FOR BANANAS AND

PINEAPPLES, AND ALL KINDS OF

STUFF THAT DOESN'T EVEN GROW

IN VIRGINIA.

THERE IS A WHOLE EDUCATION

PROCESS THAT PEOPLE HAVE TO

ADOPT.

Reporter: AND HE

TEACHES THEM HOW TO COOK

FOODS THEY DON'T NORMALLY

PUT ON THEIR TABLE.

YOU PUT IT IN THE OVEN

FOR ABOUT 45 MINUTES ON 350,

375.

Reporter: HE ACCEPTS

FOOD STAMPS AND IS SO

PASSIONATE ABOUT

DISTRIBUTING HEALTHY FOOD HE

SOMETIMES JUST GIVES IT

AWAY.

HE HAS EVEN GOTTEN THE

ATTENTION OF CITY LEADERS.

I THINK IT IS A MARVELOUS

IDEA.

IT REALLY HELPS TO EDUCATE

THE POPULATION, GIVE THEM AN

OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE ACCESS

TO REALLY FRESH FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES THAT THEY MIGHT

NOT NORMALLY BE ABLE TO GET

TO IN SOME OF THE BETTER-END

CITY MARKETS.

Reporter: VISITING

RETIRING HOMES IS ALSO A

PRIORITY BECAUSE ESPECIALLY

NEED A HEALTHY MARKET.

I THINK IT IS A BEAUTIFUL

THING BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT

PEOPLE IN HERE WHO ARE

DIABETIC, AND THEY CAN COME

OUT AND GET FRESH

VEGETABLES, AND IT'S

ORGANIC.

IT IS HARD FOR US TO GET

TO THE STORE.

IF WE DO GET TO THE STORE,

WE'VE GOT TO CATCH TWO

BUSES, AND WE'VE GOT TO

CATCH TWO BUSES BACK.

I BELIEVE THIS IS REALLY

WONDERFUL.

Reporter: MARK HAS BEEN

DOING THIS FOR FOUR YEARS.

HE GOT THE IDEA MANY YEARS

AGO, BUT NEEDED THE PROPER

MOTIVATION TO BEGIN.

I WAS FORTUNATE.

I GOT FIRED FROM MY JOB.

THAT WAS THE BEST THING THAT

EVER HAPPENED TO ME.

Reporter: MARK HAD A

BIG DREAM TO TAKE HEALTHY

FOOD TO PEOPLE WHO DON'T

NORMALLY GET IT.

BUT HE HAD A SMALL BUDGET,

SO HE BOUGHT THIS OLD CHURCH

BUS FOR $3600 OFF OF

CRAIGSLIST.

WITHIN A MONTH, HE WAS ON

THE ROAD AND MADE ENOUGH

MONEY TO SUPPORT HIS

FAMILY.

HE SAYS AMERICA'S CURRENT

FOOD SYSTEM IS

UNSUSTAINABLE.

INSTEAD WAITING FOR

SOMETHING TO COMPLETELY FALL

APART AND COLLAPSE, WE CAN

ACTUALLY TRY TO CHANGE IT

BEFORE THAT HAPPENS.

Reporter: MARK SAYS HE

HAS NEVER WORKED THIS HARD

BUT HAS NEVER BEEN HAPPIER,

KNOWING HIS COSTUMERS DON'T

HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WHERE

THEIR FOOD COMES FROM.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS,

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA.

Pat: NOW, DOESN'T THAT

WARM YOUR HEART.

Terry: WHAT A GREAT

IDEA.

HE IS DOING SOMETHING THAT

MATTERS AND WONDERFUL.

Pat: AND IT HELPS

PEOPLE.

AND THE PEOPLE IN THE INNER

CITY, IN THE SO-CALLED FOOD

DESERTS, THEY'RE THRILLED

THEY CAN HAVE FRESH FOOD AND

VEGETABLES.

THAT'S GREAT.

HATS OFF TO THAT WONDERFUL

MAN.

Terry: WE'RE ALWAYS

TALKING ABOUT THE VALUE OF

ORGANIC ON THIS PROGRAM,

TOO.

SO WHAT A TREAT.

.

Pat: IT IS GREAT, AND

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT ALL OF THE PESTICIDES

AND THE CHEMICALS THAT ARE

ON THE FOOD.

THAT'S GREAT.

Terry: IT REALLY IS.

COMING UP, SHE'S BEEN CALLED

ONE OF THE TOP MONEY

MANAGERS IN THE COUNTRY.

KIMBERLY FOSS SHARES HOW YOU

CAN RECESSION-PROOF YOUR

FINANCIAL FUTURE.

THAT'S WHEN WE CALM BACK.

RTA YIP

Terry: WELL, WHEN

KIMBERLY FOSS WAS JUST 11

YEARS OLD, SHE KNEW SHE

WANTED TO BE BE A MONEY

MANAGER.

HER REASON WAS SIMPLE: SHE

HAD TO WEAR HAND-ME-DOWN

CLOTHES ALL OF THE TIME, AND

KIMBERLY JUST WANTED TO BE

ABLE TO AFFORD A NEW PAIR OF

JORDASH JEANS, AND SINCE

THEN SHE HAS BECOME ONE OF

THE MOST SOUGHT-AFTER

FINANCIAL EXPERTS IN THE

COUNTRY.

IN THESE UNEASY TIMES,

YOU NEED ADVICE YOU CAN

TRUST.

KIMBERLY FOSS IS A HIGHLY

RESPECTED FINANCIAL EXPERT.

SHE CONTRIBUTES FREQUENTLY

TO FOX NEWS, CNBC, AND THE

"WALL STREET JOURNAL".

IN HER NEW BOOK "WEALTHY BY

DESIGN" KIMBERLY GIVES GOOD

ADVICE TO HELP YOU INVEST IN

THE FUTURE, NO MATTER WHAT

THE FINANCIAL CLIMATE.

Terry: KIMBERLY FOSS IS

HERE WITH US NOW.

AND WE WELCOME YOU TO THE

"THE 700 CLUB."

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

Terry: FIRST QUESTION,

DID YOU EVER GET THOSE

JORDASH JEANS?

I DID.

Terry: WHEN YOU SAID

YOU WANTED TO BECOME A MONEY

MANAGER AND PURSUE A CAREER,

THAT YOU ACCOMPLISHED WHAT

YOU WANTED TO DO BY SETTING

GOALS.

AND YOU TELL PEOPLE TODAY

THAT'S ONE OF THE PLACES

THEY NEED TO BEGIN, TOO.

NUMBER ONE, YOU HAVE TO

FIGURE OUT WHERE DO YOU WANT

TO BE OR WHAT DO YOU WANT TO

DO.

AND THE BIGGEST THING TO

ACHIEVING THOSE GOALS IS

WRITE THEM DOWN.

THERE IS A HARVARD STUDY

THAT SAYS THAT 3% OF THE

POPULATION THAT ACTUALLY

WRITE THINGS DOWN HAVE 100

TIMES MORE MONEY -- NOT THAT

THAT'S MORE IMPORTANT AFTER

A COLLEGE EDUCATION, BUT

THERE IS A CONNECTION TO

WRITING THINGS DOWN AND TO

ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS.

Terry: DO YOU STILL DO

THAT TODAY?

ABSOLUTELY.

MY WHOLE STAFF HAS A

FRANKLIN DAYTIMER AND WE

HAVE OUR GOALS, ONE, TWO,

THREE.

Terry: IF SOMEONE HAS

NEVER DONE THAT, WHERE DO

YOU START?

WITH A YOUNG TEENAGER, MY

DAUGHTER, I SAT HER DOWN.

WHAT DOES SHE WANT TO DO?

WHERE DOES SHE WANT TO GO?

AND WE SAT DOWN AND DID A

BUDGET.

I LOVE AN AP APP CALLED

CALLEDmint.com.

YOU NODE TO KNOW WHERE YOUR

MONEY IS GOING BEFORE YOU

CAN PLACE IT TO MAKE IT DO

WELL.

Terry: YOU START YOUR

BOOK WITH THE FINANCIAL

CRASH OF 2008.

HOW DID YOU SURVIVE THAT?

AND HOW DID YOU HELP YOUR

CLIENTS SURVIVE THAT?

IT WAS AN INSANE TIME.

Terry: DID YOU SEE THAT

COMING?

NO ONE SAW THAT COMING.

IF YOU SAW THAT COMING, YOU

WERE ONE OF 100 MILLION

PEOPLE.

BUT WHEN IT DID COME, I

THOUGHT, THIS IS GOING TO

CHANGE THE FINANCE WORLD

FOREVER.

IT WAS VERY SCARY.

WITH THAT, I WAS NOT ONE TO

JUST SIT STILL.

SO I WANTED TO REALLY LOOK

AND SAY, WHAT CAN WE DO?

WE CAN'T JUST SIT HERE.

THAT'S WHEN I GOT MY MIND

THINKING, AND WE WERE ABLE

TO CREATE A STRUCTURED

PRODUCT FOR MY CLIENT AND WE

RETURNED THEM 14.5% FOR FOUR

YEARS.

Terry: GOOD FOR YOU.

IT IS ONE THING TO DO IT FOR

YOURSELF, BUT THERE IS

ANOTHER THING HAVING PEOPLE

WHO DEPEND AND YOU.

> ON YOU.

ABSOLUTELY.

HAVING YOUR ASSETS IN ONE

BASKET -- IF YOU'RE RUNNING

THROUGH THE FOREST AND YOU

HAVE ONE BASKET WITH EGGS,

AND YOU TRIP-AND-FALL, HOW

MANY EGGS DO YOU?

NOT MANY.

BUT IF YOU HAVE 12 BASKETS,

THEN YOU HAVE A BETTER

CHANCE.

SO DIVERSIFICATION.

Terry: YOU WRITE, IN

ORDER TO STAY THE COURSE, WE

HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE ON

THE COURSE.

HOW DOES ONE DETERMINE

THAT?

I THINK FIRST YOU HAVE TO

HAVE A PLAN.

THAT IS JUST THE BEGINNING

OF MY BOOK.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PLAN.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE GOALS.

IF YOU CAN'T DO THAT

YOURSELF, SEEK OUT A

PROFESSIONAL, A C.F.P.,

SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN THROUGH

THIS BEFORE.

THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED AN

INVESTMENT POLICY

STATEMENT.

THAT IS YOUR ROADMAP FOR

FINANCIAL SECURITY.

AND YOU CHECK BACK WITH THAT

EVERY YEAR.

THAT'S YOUR PLAN.

YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU

STAY ON THAT COURSE AND NOT

GO OFF.

Terry: MOST PEOPLE

DON'T HAVE THE BACKGROUND

AND THE EDUCATION THAT YOU

DO.

WHERE DO YOU THINK MOST

PEOPLE GO WRONG?

MOST PEOPLE GO WRONG IN

THE FEAR AND GRIEF CYCLE.

MY GOAL IS TO EDUCATE PEOPLE

SO THEY CAN MAKE WISE

DECISIONS WITH THEIR MONEY

AND STAY OUT OF THAT FEAR

AND GREED.

IF WE DO THAT AND WE HAVE A

PLAN, THAT IS CREATION FOR

LONG, SUSTAINABLE PLAN.

FEAR IS WHEN THE MARKET

CRASHED IN 2008, AND

SUBSEQUENTLY, 2007 WAS A

VERY GREEDY TIME.

Terry: YOU HAVE A RULE

CALLED THE 50-30-20.

I LOVE THAT RULE.

THIS EMERGED OUT OF MY

DAUGHTER, WHO IS 21, TRYING

TO MANAGE MONEY.

I'M TRYING TO TEACH HER HOW

TO MANAGE MONEY.

THAT IS 50% OF YOUR

TAKE-HOME INCOME SHOULD GO

TO THE ESSENTIALS, AND

THAT'S HOUSING,

TRANSPORTATION, UTILITIES,

AND FOOD.

THAT'S IT.

IF IT IS NOT ONE OF THOSE,

IT IS NOT A CORE.

INTERNET IS NOT A CORE.

AND THEN --

Terry: 40-INCH SCREEN

TV IS NOT A CORE.

EXACTLY.

ON THE FINANCIALS, IT IS

BASICALLY TITHING, YOUR DEBT

REDUCTION AND RETIREMENT

SAVINGS.

AND SO THOSE ARE THOSE

THREE.

AND THE 20% IS THE REST OF

IT, EVERYTHING ELSE.

Terry: DO MOST PEOPLE

LIVE ABOVE THAT 50%?

OH, YES.

Terry: BECAUSE THAT

DOESN'T SEEM LIKE A LOT OF

MONEY -- THOSE ARE THE

BIGGIES.

THAT IS WHY THIS IS SO

SIMPLE AND IT WORKS SO

WELL.

BECAUSE IT IS 50% TO CORE,

30% TO FINANCIALS, AND 20%

TO EVERYTHING ELSE.

BUT YOU HAVE TO BE

DISCIPLINED TO USE THOSE.

AND THAT'S WHEN THE

mint.com COMES IN.

AND THAT'S WHY I DID THE

BOOK.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE

THAT AN INSTRUCTION BOOK.

AND THEY COULD USE MONEY NOT

AS SOMETHING THAT IS FEARED

OR SOMETHING THAT IS A

DREDGERY, BUT IT IS A TOOL

OF FINAL HOPE.

Terry: IT CAN HELP

YOU.

RIGHT.

IT IS A TOOL OF FINANCIAL

HELP.

Terry: TOOK A BIT FOR A

MINUTE -- YOU KNOW THE

BABY-BOOMERS ARE ALL COMING

INTO RETIREMENT.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO

SOMEONE WHO IS ABOUT TO

RETIRE AND DOESN'T HAVE WHAT

THEY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE OR

MAYBE WHAT THEY NEED.

FIRST OF ALL, IT IS NEVER

TOO LATE TO STOP SAVING.

YOU MAY HAVE TO SAVE MORE.

OR YOU MAY HAVE TO SAVE MORE

THAN WHAT YOU HAVE NOW TO

LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT TO.

YOU MAY HAVE TO ACTUALLY

WORK A LITTLE LONGER.

WHICH IS OKAY BECAUSE WE'RE

HEALTHIER, AND WE WANT TO BE

BPURPOSEFUL FOR GOD'S

WORD.

AND CHECK YOUR ALLOCATION.

SOMETIMES WE'LL BE SEDUCED

TO TAKING TOO MUCH.

LIKE IN THE MARKET RIGHT

NOW, PEOPLE ARE FORCED INTO

THE MARKET BECAUSE THE

YIELDS ARE SO LOW, THAT

EVERYBODY IS BEING FORCED

INTO THE STOCK MARKET.

BE CAREFUL, BECAUSE THAT

MARKET CAN DROP, AND WE

PROBABLY WILL HAVE SOME

PULLBACKS.

SO IT GOES BACK TO THAT

ALLOCATION.

HOW MUCH TO STOCKS, AND HOW

MUCH TO FUNDS.

A PERSON IN THEIR 50s, I

WOULD SAY 40% OF STOCKS AND

60% OF BONDS.

EVEN THOUGH THE BONDS ARE

REALLY, REALLY YIELDING VERY

LOW RIGHT NOW, RATES WILL GO

UP.

MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT TAKE

LONG-TERM BONDS IN YOUR

PORTFOLIO.

Terry: STAY THE

COURSE.

ABSOLUTE THE.

LY.

Terry: WE WANT TO THANK

YOU FOR BEING WITH US.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE GREAT

MONEY MANAGEMENT TIPS, CHECK

OUT THE BOOK.

IT'S CALLED "WEALTHY BY

DESIGN," AND IT IS AVAILABLE

NATIONWIDE.

SO GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH

US.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: AND STILL TO

COME, DARLA SAYS, "MY

52-YEAR-OLD SON HASN'T

WORKED SINCE THE 1st OF

DECEMBER, AND I'M DOING ALL

I CAN, BUT I CAN'T HELP BUT

THINK I SHOULD LET GOD MEET

HIS NEEDS.

SHOULD I STOP HELPING HIM?"

YOU'LL GET YOUR ANSWER FROM

PAT LATER ON "THE 700

CLUB."

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

OF THE LEADERS OF THE

PROTEST INTO EXILE AND ON A

FAITH JOURNEY THAT

CHRIST.

HE NOW HEADS A MINISTRY

OPPOSED TO CHINA'S FORCED

ABORTIONS UNDER ITS

SHE TOLD A U.S. SUBCOMMITTEE

THAT HER COUNTRY MAY BE

MATERIALLY RICH, BUT IT IS

PRESIDENT OBAMA MEETS WITH

A CENTRAL FLORIDA SCHOOL

DISTRICT IS PO APOLOGIZING

FOR USE AN EYE-SCANNING

EQUIPMENT ON STUDENTS

WITHOUT THEIR PARENTS'

PERMISSION.

THE CAMERAS WERE INSTALLED

ON SCHOOL BUSES AS PART OF A

SECURITY PROGRAM AND

CAPTURED STUDENTS' NAMES AND

IDENTIFICATION.

BUT PARENTS WERE NEVER

NOTIFIED ABOUT THE SYSTEM.

THE SCHOOL IS APOLOGIZING

FOR NOT GIVING PARENTS THE

CHANCE TO OPT OUT.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITHIF0Y MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"ION,

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: MANY OF YOU SENT

IN E-MAIL QUESTIONS, AND WE

WANT TO ANSWER SOME OF THOSE

TODAY.

THE FIRST QUESTION IS FROM

DARLA, WHO SAYS, "MY

52-YEAR-OLD NON-CHRISTIANSON

HASN'T WORKED SINCE THE

FIRST OF DECEMBER LAST

YEAR.

I'M HELPING HIM ALL I CAN TO

KEEP HIS HEAD ABOVE WATER,

INCLUDING BUYING A TRUCK FOR

HIM.

AM I WRONG IN GIVING HIM

WHAT HE NEEDS?

AM I TAKING HIM OUT OF GOD'S

HANDS.

SHOULD WE, AS PARENTS, LET

GOD HANDLE OR CHILDREN

INSTEAD OF GIVING THEM WHAT

THEY NEED?"

Pat: DARLA, THAT'S A

QUESTION MANY PARENTS ARE

FACING.

BUT IF SOMEBODY IS NOT DOING

WHAT THEY SHOULD DO, YOU

BECOME AN ENABLER.

A 52-YEAR-OLD HAUTE T OUGHT

TO GET A JOB.

IF HE IS ALWAYS THINKING HE

CAN GO TO MOM AND GET WHAT

HE WANTS, THEN THE INCENTIVE

TO GO OUT AND FACE THE WORLD

IS TAKEN AWAY FROM HIM.

HE NEEDS TO GET A PLACE OF

HIS OWN.

HE NEEDS TO BE ON HIS OWN.

SO YOU'RE NOT HELPING HIM

ANY.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT TAKING

HIM AWAY FROM GOD'S WILL, I

DON'T KNOW.

BUT TO GIVE A CHILD A HAND

ALONG THE WAY, THAT'S WHAT

PARENTS DO.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE

WORLD WRONG WITH THAT.

Terry: SHE SAYS HER SON

IS 52, AND I'VE BEEN GUILTY

OF THIS, AND WE DO THINGS

FOR OUR CHILDREN AND WE

DON'T TEACH THEM TO HANDLE

THEIR MONEY WELL --

Pat: I HAVE NO IDEA

WHAT TEACHING SHE GAVE ALONG

THE WAY, BUT THEY SHOULD

HAVE HAD AN ALLOWANCE, AND

THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO

UNDERSTAND MONEY, AND THEY

SHOULD DO IT WHEN THEY'RE

LITTLE KIDS.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER

WHO SAYS, "I'LL BE LEAVING

NEXT FALL TO ATTEND

COLLEGE.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS

CALLED ME TO BE A YOUTH

PASTOR AND WORK OVERSEAS ONE

DAY.

MY DAD REFUSES TO TALK TO ME

ABOUT MY FUTURE.

WHEN I BRING IT UP, HE TELLS

ME I DON'T NEED TO RUN OUT

OF THE HOUSE AS SOON AS I

TURN 18.

I DON'T WANT TO SIT AT HOME

AND NOT BE PRODUCTIVE.

HOW DO I CHOOSE BETWEEN GOD

AND MY FATHER?"

Pat: I DON'T THINK

YOU'RE HEARING FROM GOD LIKE

YOU THINK.

GOD HAS GIVEN YOU A FATHER,

AND HE HAS GIVEN YOU WISDOM,

AND YOU NEED TO RECEIVE THAT

WISDOM.

I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE.

MY OWN LIFE, I HAD FOUR

YEARS OF COLLEGE, AND THEN I

HAD THREE YEARS OF LAW

SCHOOL.

AND THEN I HAD BUSINESS

EXPERIENCE.

AND THE LORD CALLED ME TO

HIS SERVICE OUT OF

BUSINESS.

AND I WANTED TO GET GOING

RIGHT THEN.

BUT THE LORD SAID GO AND

SPEND TIME, THREE MORE YEARS

, IN THEOLOGICAL SCHOOL.

IT HAS BEEN INVALUABLE.

YOU WANT TO GO OUT AND JUMP

OUT INTO THE WORLD WITHOUT

THE PROPER WEAPONS, WITHOUT

THE PROPER INTELLECTUAL

BACKGROUND, AND WITHOUT THE

MATURITY YOU NEED.

GOD IS IN NO HURRY.

HE WAS IN NO HURRY TO CREATE

THE EARTH.

AND HE IS IN NO HURRY TO GET

YOU LAUNCHED.

GET THE TRAINING YOU NEED

AND GET THE MATURITY YOU

NEED BEFORE YOU GO OUT AND

BEGIN TO FACE THE GIANTS

THAT ARE OUT THERE IN THE

WORLD AHEAD OF YOU.

Terry: THIS IS LEN WHO

SAYS, "WHAT DOES THE BIBLE

MEAN WHEN IT SPEAKS OF A REP

ROBATE MIND.

DOES THIS MEAN THERE IS NO

CHANCE OF REPENTANCE?"

Pat: I THINK REPRO

REPRO BATE IS A MIND THAT

HAS TURNED AWAY FROM THE

LORD.

BUT THERE IS NOTHING THAT

SAYS THAT THAT MIND CAN'T BE

CONVERTED AND COME BACK TO

THE LORD.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT THIS IS

SOMETHING THAT YOU WILL

RESCIND AWAY YOUR LAST

CHANCE.

BUT THAT IS WHAT THEY'RE

TALKING ABOUT, A MIND THAT

HAS REJECTED THE THINGS OF

GOD.

IT IS DANGEROUS, DANGEROUS

GROUND.

Terry: THIS IS KATIE

WHO SAYS, "AFTER WORKING FOR

20 YEARS FOR THE SAME

COMPANY, MY FATHER HAS JUST

BEEN LAID OFF.

I HEARD HIM TELL MY MOTHER

THAT TO SAVE MONEY, THEY

WOULD STOP TITHING.

I'M WORRIED THIS SITUATION

WILL MAKE A BAD SITUATION

WORSE.

HOW DO I EXPLAIN MY

MISGIVINGS ABOUT THIS

WITHOUT CROSSING THE LINE AS

THEIR DAUGHTER?"

Pat: YOU DIDN'T TELL ME

HOW OLD YOU ARE, OR HOW OLD

YOUR PARENTS WERE, EXCEPT

THEY WORKED 20 YEARS FOR ONE

COMPANY AND WERE LAID OFF.

I THINK IF YOU HAVE FAMILY

PRAYER TIME, YOU COULD

DISCUSS IT.

YOU COULD SAY I REALLY

BELIEVE THAT GOD WILL BLESS

US AS A FAMILY IF WE

CONTINUE TO GIVE UNTO THE

LORD.

BUT, YOU KNOW, THAT'S UP TO

YOUR FATHER.

Terry: THIS IS KELLY

WHO SAYS, "WE OFTEN TALK

ABOUT GOD BLESSING JOB AFTER

HIS TIME OF TESTING, AND

THAT GOD BLESSED JOB WITH A

NEW, LARGER FAMILY.

BUT WHERE WAS GOD FOR JOB'S

ORIGINAL FAMILY?

WHERE WAS THE BLESSING FOR

THEM?"

Pat: THEY CAUGHT IT IN

THE NECK.

I DON'T KNOW -- ACTUALLY, IT

WASN'T GOD.

IT WAS SATAN, SATAN WHO

BROUGHT THE PROBLEM ON JOB,

AND NOT GOD.

GOD SAID HE IS EXHIBIT "A."

HE IS MY MAN.

IF YOU EVER CONSIDERED JOB,

ME IS EXHIBIT A.

AND SATAN SAID, I'M GOING TO

GO AFTER HIM AND PROVE

YOU'RE WRONG.

AND GOD SAID, OKAY, JUST

DON'T TAKE HIS LIFE AWAY.

UNFORTUNATELY, SATAN HURT

JOB'S FAMILY.

WHERE WAS GOD?

WELL, GOD LET THINGS

HAPPEN.

GOD DOES NOT SPARE US FROM

ALL OF THE THINGS IN LIFE.

HE DOESN'T.

NOR DOES HE SPARE EVERYONE

FROM WHAT SATAN WANTS TO DO

TO THEM.

BUT IN JOB'S CASE, GOD SAID,

SATAN, YOU CAN ONLY GO SO

FAR, BUT YOU CAN'T TAKE HIS

LIFE.

Terry: TAMMY SAYS,

"SOMETIMES I GET SO

OVERWHELMED WITH LIFE I

DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO PRAY

FOR.

WHEN I GET THAT LOW AND

DISCOURAGED, HOW SHOULD I

PRAY.

I CATCH MYSELF REPEATING

THANKING THE LORD FOR LOVING

ME."

Pat: TAMMY, YOU'RE

DOING THE RIGHT THING.

SPEND TIME WORSHIPPING THE

LORD, SPEND TIME TELLING HIM

YOU LOVE HIM.

ONE TIME I HAD ONE TOO MANY

THINGS GOING ON.

IT WAS A BURDEN AND A BURDEN

AND A BURDEN.

AND I SAID, GOD, I CAN'T

HANDLE THIS BURDEN ANY

LONGER AND I'M GOING TO GIVE

IT TO YOU.

AND GOD SAID, OKAY, AND HE

TOOK IT.

WITHIN A FEW DAYS,

EVERYTHING WORKED OUT.

TERRY, I RECOMMEND THAT FOR

YOU.

WHATEVER BUENAS TARDES

YOU'VBURDENS YOU'VE GOT,

TAKE ONE OR TWO AND HAND

THEM TO GOD.

Terry: GOOD QUESTIONS

TODAY.

TODAY WEN YU IS A HAPPY,

HEALTHY GIRL.

BUT IT WASN'T LONG AGO HER

PARENTS WORRIED SHE WOULDN'T

LIVE TO SEE HER SEVENTH

BIRTHDAY.

6-YEAR-OLD WEN YU JUST

WANTED WHAT ALL OF THE OTHER

KIDS HAD, SOME FRIENDS.

BUT SHE WAS SLOWER AND

SMALLER THAN EVERYONE ELSE.

AND THE HARDER SHE TRIED TO

MAKE FRIENDS, THE MORE SHE

GOT REJECTED.

I REMEMBER ONE DAY WHEN

MY SISTER WAS IN GYM CLASS,

AND SHE WAS RUNNING AND

TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH HER

CLASSMATES.

BUT SHE FELL DOWN AND

EVERYBODY LAUGHED AT HER.

SOMETIMES I EVEN SAW OTHER

KIDS PUSHING HER DOWN.

IT MADE ME SO SAD.

Terry: WEN YU WAS BORN

WITH A HOLE IN HER HEART AND

A WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM.

HER PARENTS WERE POOR, AND

DID EVERYTHING THEY COULD TO

TREAT THEIR DAUGHTER'S

CONDITION.

I WORKED EARLY IN THE

MORNING AND AFTER THE DARK,

ALL TO HELP MY LITTLE GIRL.

I WANTED HER TO BE HEALTHY

AND HAVE A COMFORTABLE

LIFE.

MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN

THE WORLD.

Terry: BUT MR. FAWN

ONLY MADE $150 A MONTH, AND

THAT COVERED WEN YU'S

MEDICINE AT FIRST.

BUT SOON THE MEDICINE

STARTED EATING AWAY AT THE

GIRL'S SENSITIVE STOMACH.

AND THEN TEMPERATURES

DROPPED BELOW ZERO, AND WEN

YU GOT PNEUMONIA.

I WAS SO AFRAID THAT I

WAS GOING TO LOSE MY

SISTER.

I WISHED THAT SOMEHOW I

COULD JUST TAKE HER PAIN ON

MYSELF.

Terry: THE WHOLE FAMILY

KNEW WEN Y YU'S ONLY HOPE

WAS HEART SURGERY, BUT THE

FAMILY COULD NOT AFFORD IT.

I TOLD MYSELF I DO

ANYTHING FOR THEIR HELP.

BUT I DIDN'T HAVE TO DO

ANYTHING.

CBN CALLED ME AND TOLD ME

THEY HAD ALREADY ARRANGED

FOR SURGERY FOR WEN YU.

I THOUGHT I WAS DREAMING.

Terry: THE SURGERY WAS

A SUCCESS.

TODAY WEN YU'S HEART AND

IMMUNE SYSTEM ARE STRONG.

WHEN I SAW THE SMILE ON

MY DAUGHTER'S FACE FOR THE

FIRST TIME, MY LITTLE HEART

CAME BACK TO LIFE.

I LOVE TO WATCH HER RUN AND

JUMP.

YOU SAVED WEN YU, AND YOU

SAVED MY FAMILY, TOO.

Terry: A LITTLE GIRL SO

LOVED BY HER PARENTS AND HER

SISTER.

THEY JUST DID NOT HAVE THE

MEANS TO FIX A VERY FIXABLE

SITUATION.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER YOU

KNOW THIS OR NOT, BUT "700

CLUB" MEMBERS MAKE THIS KIND

OF MEDICAL ANSWER AVAILABLE

TO PEOPLE FOR FREE AROUND

THE WORLD.

IT IS JUST ONE OF THE THINGS

THAT YOUR GIFTS DO WHEN YOU

AND FOOD WHEN THEY NEED IT.

WE'RE GIVING PEOPLE

MICROENTERPRISE STUDENTS

OPPORTUNITIES SO THEY CAN

CHANGING LIVES.

SHE IS A PRECIOUS LITTLE

GIRL, ISN'T SHE?

Pat: IT IS AMAZING.

I MET DONG CHO'S SON, AND HE

IS RUNNING AN AMAZING

CHARITY.

AND HE WAS HURT IN THE

REVOLUTION, BUT THE NUMBERS

OF PEOPLE THEY'RE HELPING.

BUT YOU THINK THESE MASSES

OF PEOPLE -- YOU THINK LIFE

IS CHEAP, BUT IT IS NOT.

THE PARENTS LOVE THEIR

CHILDREN LIKE WE DO HERE IN

THE UNITED STATES.

THEY CARE FOR THEIR LITTLE

ONES.

IF WE CAN REACH OUT AND HELP

THE POOR AND THE NEEDY IN

THOSE COUNTRIES, THEY

APPRECIATE IT A GREAT DEAL.

SO IT IS SOMETHING YOU CAN

DO TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

ALL RIGHT, LET'S PRAY.

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP -- WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A

BREAK FIRST -- BUT THE COUGH

THAT WOULDN'T QUIT.

I WOULD LAY AND CRY

BECAUSE THERE WAS NOTHING

ELSE I COULD DO.

AND I WOULD PRAY, GOD,

PLEASE HEAL ME.

Terry: FIND OUT HOW SHE

GOD THAGOT THAT HEALING.

THAT'S COMING UP NEXT.

Pat: WE BELIEVE IN

MIRACLES, AND WE'RE GOING TO

ASK GOD FOR MIRACLES IN YOUR

LIFE.

AND I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT

ONE.

KAREN JANDEL HAD SUFFERED

FROM BRONCHITIS AND

PNEUMONIA, NOT FOR A FEW

MONTHS, BUT FOR SEVERAL

YEARS.

BUT WHEN JANUARY ROLLED

AROUND, KAREN STARTED

COUGHING.

AND SHE COULDN'T STOP.

AT FIRST SHE TURNED TO

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS, BUT

THESE DIDN'T WORK.

AND, GUESS WHAT?

SHE TURNED ON THE TELEVISION

SET.

Reporter: IN

JANUARY 2013, KAREN JANDEL

WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A SEVERE

SINUS INFECTION THAT DRAINED

INTO HER LUNGS.

A DEEP, PAINFUL COUGH KEPT

HER AWAKE NIGHT AFTER

NIGHT.

EMOTIONALLY, I WAS

DRAINED.

I WAS FRUSTRATED.

AND SINCE I COULDN'T SLEEP,

I WASN'T GETTING MY IMMUNE

SYSTEM BACK TO WHERE IT

SHOULD HAVE BEEN.

Reporter: KAREN'S

DOCTOR GAVE HER A STRONG,

FIVE-DAY ANTIBIOTIC FOR THE

INFECTION.

I COME HOME, AND I TOOK

THE TWO PILLS, AND 5:00 CAME

AND I STARTED COUGHING. AND

I COUGHED ALL NIGHT LONG.

SATURDAY NIGHT I TOOK THE

NEXT ANTIBIOTIC, AND I

DIDN'T SLEEP THAT NIGHT,

EITHER.

AND THE COUGH SEEMED TO BE

GETTING WORSE.

Reporter: KAREN

FINISHED FOUR DAYS OF THE

ANTIBIOTIC, BUT THE COUGHING

CONTINUED.

I WOULD LAY AND CRY AND

PRAY, GOD, PLEASE HEAL

MERE.

Reporter: ON THE FIFTH

DAY, KAREN SAT DOWN TO WATCH

"THE 700 CLUB" AND PRAYED

FOR ENCOURAGEMENT.

I WENT THROUGH THE

PROGRAM, AND PAT STARTED

PRAYING FOR PEOPLE.

AND I SAID, GOD, PLEASE,

PLEASE LET HIM HAVE A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE THAT I'M GOING

TO BE HEALED.

WITHIN A SPLIT SECOND, I

HEARD PAT.

HE HAD A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE

THAT SOMEONE WAS CRYING OUT

TO GOD.

THEY HAVE A VERY, VERY DEEP

COUGH.

YOU HAVE A DEEP COUGH.

YOU'VE BEEN CRYING OUT TO

GOD, PLEASE HELP ME.

GOD HAS HEARD YOUR PRAYER,

AND YOU'LL FEEL HEAT IN YOUR

LUNGS, AND IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, YOU'RE TOTALLY

HEALED.

I SAID, GOD, THAT'S ME.

I'M CLAIMING IT, AND I

PRAISE YOU AND I THANK YOU.

I KNOW I AM NOT GOING TO

COUGH ANYMORE.

I'M CLAIMING YOUR HEALING.

I FELT A WARMTH GO FROM MY

LUNGS ALL THE WAY THROUGH MY

RIB CAGE AND UP INTO MY

CHEST.

AND IT WAS JUST THAT FAST.

BUT I KNEW WHEN GOD HEALED

ME.

Reporter: THAT NIGHT

KAREN SLEPT PEACEFULLY FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN WEEKS, AND

HER COUGH NEVER RETURNED.

I COULDN'T DO ANYTHING

BUT SIT AND CRY.

AND I PRAISED AND THANKED

GOD.

AND I SAID, I KNOW THAT IT

HAD TO BE YOU.

YOU WERE MY HEALER BECAUSE

THE ANTIBIOTICS WERE DOING

NOTHING.

IT IS JUST WONDERFUL FOR ME

TO HAVE THAT GREAT OF A

FRIEND, THAT I CAN CALL ON

HIM ANY HOUR OF THE DAY OR

NIGHT, BECAUSE I KNOW HIS

DOOR IS NEVER CLOSED AND HIS

PHONE IS NEVER OFF THE

HOOK.

HE DOES ANSWER PRAYER.

HE ANSWERED IT 2,000 YEARS

AGO, AND HE ANSWERS IT NOW.

Pat: WAS AN AFFIRMATION

OF FAITH.

KAREN JANDEL.

MARIE OF CLIMATE FALLS

OREGON WOULD GET SICK EVERY

TIME SHE ATE.

SHE SPENT ALMOST $10,000 ON

DOCTORS' VISITS AND VARIOUS

TESTS.

THEY COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING

WRONG.

SHE KEPT ON A STRICT DIET TO

AVOID GETTING SICK.

AND ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND MARIE

HEARD TERRY GIVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, QUOTE,"YOU'RE

HAVING TROUBLE DIGESTING

YOUR FOOD NORMALLY, AND

THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

EXTENUATING PROBLEMS BECAUSE

OF THAT."

MARIE FELT A WARMTH IN HER

BODY.

THE NEXT WEEKEND SHE WENT

OUT FOR DINNER AND ATE AND

DID NOT GET SICK.

AND SHE HAS NOT HAD ANY

TROUBLE SINCE.

Terry: PRAISE THE

LORD.

THAT'S AMAZING.

THIS IS INTERESTING BECAUSE

IT IS KIND OF LIKE THE STORY

WE JUST SAW.

FOR THREE MONTHS, SHERRY OF

ATHENS, TEXAS, SUFFERED FROM

A VERY BAD COUGH AND IT

WOULD OFTEN KEEP HER UP AT

NIGHT.

SHE SAW THE DOCTOR TWICE,

TAKING MEDICATIONS, AND IT

DID NOT HELP.

ONE DAY, PAT, YOU HAD A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID, YOU HAVE A COUGH

THAT IS CONTINUING.

YOU SAID, YOUR LUNGS WILL BE

HEALED.

SHE CLAIMED THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, AND SHE SAID SHE

HAD NO COUGHING THAT NIGHT

AND HAS NOT HAD ANY PROBLEMS

WITH THE COUGH SINCE THAT

DAY.

Pat: YOU SAY THOSE

PEOPLE ARE SPECIAL?

YEAH, THEY'RE SPECIAL, BUT

SO ARE YOU.

WE ARE ALL SPECIAL BEFORE

GOD.

HE IS SO WONDERFUL.

HOW DO WE KNOW OF HIS LOVE?

HIS LOVE EXCEEDS ANYTHING WE

CAN EVER IMAGINE.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN TOGETHER AND WE'RE

GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU, AND

YOU PRAY WITH US.

LORD, WE COME BEFORE YOU,

RECOGNIZING OUR INABILITY,

BUT REC MOVING YOUR

ABILITY.

BUT RECOGNIZING YOUR

ABILITY.

YOU CREATED THE EARTH, THE

STARS, THE HEAVENS -- YOU

CREATED IT ALL.

YOU PUT MAN ON THIS PLANET.

AND, LORD, WE ASK NOW THAT

YOU WOULD FIX SOME OF THE

PEOPLE IN THIS AUDIENCE.

THEY'RE CRYING OUT TO YOU

WITH SUFFERING IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

SOMEBODY HAS A HERNIA, AND

THE LORD IS HEALING YOU

RIGHT NOW.

AND A MIRACLE IS TAKING

PLACE.

THERE IS SOMEBODY WITH

EXCESSIVE BLEEDING.

I'M NOT QUITE SURE WHAT THE

PROBLEM IS, BUT IT IS

EXCESSIVE BLEEDING, AND GOD

IS STOPPING THAT BLEEDING

RIGHT NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM

WITH THE FLAP UNDERNEATH

YOUR TONGUE, AND IT AFFECTS

YOUR SPEECH.

GOD IS HEALING THEY

SITUATION FOR YOU, AND

YOU'RE GOING TO SLOWLY FEEL

ALL OF THAT DISPERSE AND

YOUR GOING TO BE ABLE TO

SPEAK NORMALLY AGAIN.

Pat: SOMEBODY HAS LIKE

A WART OR A SORE ON THE BALL

OF YOUR FOOT.

AND RIGHT NOW GOD IS HEALING

THAT.

THAT THING THAT HAS BEEN

UGLY AND SORE IS JUST

HEALING UP AS I SPEAK IN

JESUS' NAME.

THANK YOU, LORD.

NOW, BLESS THE PEOPLE, LORD,

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

WELL, THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR TODAY'S PROGRAM.

WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR YOU

AGAIN TOMORROW.

PLUS YOU'LL HEAR HOW ONE

CHILD SURVIVED AFTER BEING

JUST A YEAR TO LIVE.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS OF JESUS:

"WHATEVER THING YOU ASK FOR

WHEN YOU PRAY, BELIEVE THAT

YOU RECEIVE THEM AND YOU

WILL HAVE THEM."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

GOD BLESS YOU.

BYE-BYE.
