HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO?

GORDAN: IN 2001, MUSIC WORLD

MOURNS PASSING OF JOHN LEE

HOOKER.

A CAREER LASTED SIX DECADES.

ONE OF JOHN LEE'S FORMER BAND

MATES IN A FIGHT FOR HIS OWN

LIFE, HIS SON, JOHNNY LEE, JR.

*

FIND THE PERFECT MIX OF

RHYTHM AND BLUES AND JAZZ, ADD

DOWN HOME FEEL, AND YOU

DISCOVERED JOHN LEE HOOKER

JR. HE IS THE SON OF JOHN LEE

HOOKER.

HE IS A TWO-TIME NOMINEE AND

SHARED RED CARPET WITH THE

WORLD'S BEST MUSICIANS AND

PLAYED ALONG BB KING, LENNY KRAV

VITS AND BOW DIDLY.

MY DAD CAME OUT WITH A HIT,

"BOOM, BOOM, BOOM,"

AND MY PEERS' MOMS AND DADS KNEW

WHAT A HIT RECORD WAS.

WOW, YOUR DAD GOT A HIT RECORD.

JOHN LEE JR. HAD A SECRET, HE

WAS ADDICTED TO DRUGS.

HE STARTED USING MARIJUANA IN

MIDDLE SCHOOL AND GOT

AGGRESSIVELY STRONGER.

IN EARLY YEARS IN HIGH SCHOOL,

HE STARTED SHOOTING HEROIN.

I WOKE UP THINKING ABOUT

DRUGS, I WENT TO SLEEP THINKING

ABOUT DRUGS.

AT LUNCH PERIODS, IN SCHOOL,

AFTER SCHOOL WAS OVER, I THOUGHT

ABOUT DRUGS.

DRUGS WAS THE THING.

JOHN WAS CONSTANTLY IN/OUT OF

COUNTY JAIL ON DRUG-RELATED

CRIMES.

DURING ONE STAY HIS CELL MATE

WANTED TO TEACH JOHN HOW TO

DEFEND HIMSELF IF HE EVER HAD TO

GO TO THE PENITENTIARY.

HE WOULD SAY STAND HERE.

I WOULD BOX MY WAY OUT.

HE WOULD SAY GOOD WORK.

I AM JUST GETTING YOU READY.

JUST AS HIS CELL MATE

PREDICTED, WHEN JOHN LEE TURNED

18, HE WAS MOVED TO AN ADULT

PRISON.

YOU ARE A KID.

GUYS 30 AND 40, WHO IS THIS

YOUNG BOY?

YOU ARE LIKE OH MY GOD, WHAT

HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO.

JOHN LEARNED ABOUT THE DARK

SIDE OF LIFE AFTER HIS FRIEND

WAS RAPED BY A CELL MATE.

AS A YOUNGSTER, YOU SAY DANG,

THAT COULD HAPPEN TO ME AS WELL.

YOU KNOW -- JUST -- THE DAY

THAT SAME INMATE HAD TO RAPE

JOHN LEE JR., HE HAD TO RELY ON

EVERY BOXING LESSON HE EVER

LEARNED.

I GRABBED HIM, AND BEAT HIM.

WHEN JOHN LEE GOT OUT OF

PRISON, HE WENT RIGHT BACK TO

DRUGS, MUSIC CAREER ENDED.

HE WAS HOMELESS AND OVERDOSED SO

MANY TIMES HE LOST COUNT.

UNCLES, PARENTS TELL ME YOU

ARE GOING TO DIE FROM DRUGS, YOU

ALREADY KNOW.

YOU WILL DIE FROM DRUGS.

I BELIEVED HIM.

I BELIEVED HIM AND I SAID I

KNOW.

BUT I DIDN'T CARE.

BY THE TIME JOHN LEE JR.

REACHED HIS 40S, HE WAS SHOOTING

HEROIN INTO HIS NECK BECAUSE THE

VEINS IN HIS ARMS COLLAPSED.

HE DEVELOPED A SEVERE INFECTION

AND WHEN HE WENT TO THE

HOSPITAL, HE FACED UP TO THE

POSSIBILITY HE COULD DIE.

THE DOCTOR LOOKED AT MY NECK

AND SAID, WE NEED TO GET THAT

INFECTION OUT OR YOU'LL DIE.

INSTANTLY, I BROKE OUT CRYING.

HE SAID YOU COULD DIE ANY

MINUTE.

HANG IN THERE, OKAY.

LAYING ON MY HOSPITAL BED, I

JUST BASICALLY SAID LORD, JESUS,

I NEED YOU TO WALK ME THROUGH

WITH THIS OR DEAL.

I SAID PLEASE, HELP ME HAVE

MERCY ON ME.

HELP ME.

AND HE HELPED ME.

HE HELPED ME.

AT THAT MOMENT, JOHN LEE

PRAYED TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN.

WHEN HE RECOVERED FROM THE

SURGERY, HE FACED MORE

DRUG-RELATED CHARGES.

HIS MOTHER CAME TO THE

SENTENCING TO PRAY FOR HER SON.

AS I WAS STANDING THERE AND

READING OFF THE CHARGES, I KNEW

I, I KNEW JUST LIKE I KNOW THAT

THIS HANGER CHIEF IS WHITE, THEY

ARE GOING TO SEND ME TO PRISON.

AND I SAW MY MOM OUT IN THE

AUDIENCE WITH HER HEAD BOWED.

SHE WAS PRAYING.

AND THE JUDGE SAID YOU ARE

SALVAGING, I AM GOING TO SEND

YOU TO JAIL.

IN MY HEART I KNOW THE LORD,

JESUS CHRIST HEARD MY MOMMA'S

PRAYERS IN MY BEHALF.

THE JUDGE SEND HIM TO A DRUG

REHAB.

HE COMPLETED AND LAUNCHED HIS

MUSIC CAREER AND WALKED THE RED

CARPET DRUG FREE.

EVERYONE THAT KNOWS HIM

SOMETHING REMARKABLE HAPPENED IN

HIS LIFE.

JESUS IS MY GOOD FRIEND.

HE IS THE STAR THAT SHINES IN

THE DARKNESS WHEN I DON'T

NOWHERE TO GO.

WHEN I AM LONELY, I CAN SPEAK

WITH HIM.

HE IS MY HOPE AND HE IS MY JOY.

HE HAS CAUSED MY NAME THAT

PEOPLE DIDN'T TRUST.

NOW I HAVE A GOOD NAME.

NOT BECAUSE OF CELEBRITY BUT

BECAUSE OF WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR

ME.

GORDAN: HE'LL DO THE SAME FOR

YOU, WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR

OTHERS, HE LOVES TO SAVE PEOPLE.

GET THAT IN YOUR HEAD.

JESUS CAME TO SAVE SINNERS.

THAT INCLUDES ME.

THAT INCLUDES YOU AND YOU CAN'T

EVER OUTRUN HIS LOVE.

YOU CAN'T GO TOO FAR.

MAYBE YOU ARE NOT LIKE JOHN ANY

LEE AND SHOOTING UP INTO YOUR

NECK, BUT MAYBE YOU HAVE HIT

ANOTHER BOTTOM.

YOU ARE WONDERING IS THERE ANY

HOPE FOR ME?

CAN I DO ANYTHING WITH MY LIFE?

CAN I EVER POSSIBLY HAVE A GOOD

NAME?

I HAVE GOOD NEWS FOR YOU, YES

YOU CAN.

JESUS LOVES TO TURN PEOPLE

AROUND.

HE LOVES TO RECEIVE PRODIGALS

BACK HOME.

HE IS WATCHING FOR THEM, HE IS

WATCHING ESPECIALLY FOR THEM AND

EVEN LEAVE THE 99 TO GO FIND

THAT 1, THAT ONE WHO IS LOST AND

NO HELP.

WHO CAN'T FIND A WAY HOME.

HE'LL EVEN GO AND SAY THIS IS

THE WAY.

JUST FOLLOW ME.

NOW.

IF THIS IS FOR YOU, YOU WANT TO

BE FREE FROM WHATEVER IS HOLDING

YOU, WHATEVER IS KEEPING YOU

FROM YOUR DREAMS, START

UNDERSTANDING THAT ALL THE

THINGS THAT GOD TELLS US TO DO,

IT IS FOR OUR BENEFIT.

HE IS LOOKING OUT FOR US.

HE HAS DREAMS FOR EACH ONE OF

US.

HE HAS PLANS, PURPOSES, CREATED

GOOD THINGS FOR US.

HE HAS DONE THAT BEFORE HE MADE

THE EARTH AND STILL HAS A DREAM

FOR YOU IF YOU JUST LET HIM.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAY JESUS,

IF YOU ARE THERE, IF YOU CAN

HEAR ME, I PROMISE YOU HE CAN.

CAN YOU SAVE ME?

CAN YOU TURN ME AROUND?

CAN YOU MAKE ME NEW AGAIN?

CAN YOU FORGIVE ME?

CAN YOU SET ME ON THE RIGHT

COURSE?

ANSWER TO ALL THOSE QUESTIONS IS

YES, YES, AND YES.

HE IS ALWAYS THERE.

HE IS THE GOD OF THE SECOND

CHANCE AND THE THIRD CHANCE AND

FOURTH CHANCE.

AS MANY CHANCES AS YOU NEED, HE

WANTS TO GIVE IT TO YOU.

NOW, IF THIS IS FOR YOU, IF THIS

IS WHAT YOU WANT, JUST BOW YOUR

HEAD, PRAY A VERY SIMPLE PRAYER,

JUST LIKE JOHNNY LEE, CRY OUT,

JESUS, CAN YOU HELP ME?

I NEED YOU NOW, I NEED A SAVIOR,

NOW.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, THAT'S RIGHT, SAY IT OUT

LOUD, JESUS.

I COME TO YOU AND I NEED YOU.

I NEED YOU IN MY LIFE.

I NEED YOU IN MY HEART.

I NEED TO BE MADE NEW AGAIN.

SO JESUS, RIGHT NOW, I ASK THAT

YOU FORGIVE ME.

THAT YOU RESTORE ME.

THAT YOU CLEANSE ME.

AND JESUS, I WANT TO FOLLOW YOU

FROM THIS DAY FORWARD I WANT TO

FOLLOW YOU.

HEAR MY PRAYER, FOR I PRAY IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE THAT JUST

PRAYED, I PRAY A BAPTISM IN YOUR

LOVE.

I ASK THAT YOUR LOVE WOULD

SURROUND THEM AND FILL THEM AND

BE ALL OVER THEM NOW.

LET THEM KNOW THEIR PRAYER HAS

BEEN HEARD AND HAS BEEN ANSWERED

NOW.

FOR I ASK IT IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, THE BIBLE

SAYS THAT IF YOU'LL BELIEVE IN

YOUR HEART AND THEN CONFESS WITH

YOUR MOUTH YOU SHALL BE SAVED.

MAKE A TOLL-FREE NUMBER AND DO

JUST THAT.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY TO THE PERSON THAT

ANSWERS THE PHONE, THEY ARE

THERE TO PRAY WITH YOU.

SAY I WANT TO MAKE JESUS LORD OF

MY LIFE.

I WANT TO CONFESS HE IS THE

SAVIOR, THE ONE FOR ME.

TERRY?

TERRY: UP NEXT, A DESPERATE

HOUSEWIFE WHO BEGAN

MOONLIGHTING.

I TOLD HIM I WAS EMBARRASSED.

I DIDN'T WANT TO SHOW MY BODY.

I WANTED TO PLEASE HIM.

TERRY: WHY THIS YOUNG WIFE

BECAME A STRIPPER WHEN WE COME

BACK.

TERRY: IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE

A HUSBAND PRESSURING HIS OWN

WIFE TO WORK IN A STRIP CLUB.

THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED TO

THE WOMAN IN OUR NEXT STORY.

IT SHATTERED HER WORLD AND

TURNED HER INTO SOMEONE SHE

DIDN'T RECOGNIZE.

I ALWAYS HAD BRUISES ON MY

CHEEKS AND ON MY ARM.

HOW COULD HE DO THAT TO ME?

WHY WOULD HE MAKE ME CRY?

I LET IT HAPPEN.

I THOUGHT MY LOVE WOULD CHANGE

HIM.

SHE FELL IN LOVE YOUNG AND

HARD.

SHE WAS JUST 14 YEARS OLD WHEN

SHE MET HER HIGH SCHOOL

SWEETHEART.

IT WAS MY FIRST BOYFRIEND,

FIRST LOVE.

HE WOULD GIVE ME LOVE AND

ATTENTION.

IT WAS SOMETHING I YEARNED FOR.

BY THE TIME SHE WAS 16, SHE

AND BOYFRIEND WERE SEXUALLY

ACTIVE.

THAT WASN'T HER ONLY SECRET.

SHE ALSO HID HER BOYFRIEND'S

ANGER.

HE STARTED BEING REALLY,

REALLY CONTROLLING.

YOU ARE THE ONLY GIRL FOR ME.

IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU, NOBODY ELSE

CAN HAVE YOU.

I THOUGHT I LOVED HIM AND THIS

WAS JUST A PHASE.

HE'LL STOP DOING WHAT HE WAS

DOING.

SHE COULDN'T CHANGE HIM AND

THE ABUSE DIDN'T STOP.

WE BROKE UP.

MY MOM WOULDN'T ALLOW HIM TO

COME OVER HERE.

ONE DAY HE CAME TO MY HOUSE WITH

HIS CAR.

HE CAME KNOCKING AT THE DOOR.

WHEN SHE CAME OUTSIDE, HE

KIDNAPPED HER.

HE GRABBED ME, THREW ME IN

THE CAR AND TOOK OFF CRAZY.

I REMEMBER SCREAMING AND CRYING

AND HELD ME BY THE HAIR AND SAID

YOU ARE GOING TO DIE TONIGHT IF

I CAN'T HAVE YOU NOBODY CAN.

SHE JUMPED FROM THE CAR AND

RAN HOME.

HE WAS ARRESTED AND SENT TO

JAIL.

WHEN HE GOT OUT OF PRISON AND

CONTACTED HER, SHE GOT SUCKED

BACK INTO THE RELATIONSHIP.

I THOUGHT HE HAD CHANGED

EVERYTHING WAS ALL GOOD IN THE

BEGINNING, HE WAS PT ABUSIVE.

WE WERE HAVING FUN.

HE WAS PERFECT.

THEY MARRIED WHEN SHE WAS 21.

ONE YEAR LATER THE ABUSE STARTED

AGAIN.

I HAD TO DO WHATEVER HE SAID.

IT WAS WORSE BECAUSE I WAS HIS

WIFE.

I REALLY BELONGED TO HIM.

HE WANTED ME TO LOOK LIKE A

BARBIE DOLL.

I HAD BREAST AUGMENTATION AND

SURGERIES.

EVEN WITH ALL THE CHANGES,

HER HUSBAND STILL WASN'T

SATISFIED.

HE HAD A NEW REQUEST.

HE WANTED HER TO STRIP.

I AM THINKING WHAT?

I HAD NEVER BEEN TO A STRIP

CLUB.

I WAS HURT.

IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY, WHY WOULD

YOU WANT SOMEONE ELSE TO SEE

THEIR BODY.

I WAS ALWAYS WANTING TO PLEASE

HIM.

SO SHE STARTED STRIPPING.

I WAS AFRAID OF HIM.

I SAID I WAS EMBARRASSED AND

DIDN'T WANT TO SHOW MY BODY.

I WAS SCARED AND NERVOUS.

SHE ALSO BEGAN DRINKING.

THE ALCOHOL MADE ME NOT CARE.

NOT THINK ABOUT WHAT I WAS

DOING.

AT HOME, THE ABUSE ONLY GOT

WORSE.

FINALLY SHE HAD HAD ENOUGH.

I GO SO FREAKED OUT, WHAT IF

HE ACCIDENTALLY KILLED ME?

I HAVE TO GET OUT OF HERE.

SHE LEFT HER HUSBAND AND TWO

YEARS LATER THEIR DIVORCE WAS

FINAL.

I FELT LIKE I GOT MARRIED.

I THOUGHT MARRIAGE WAS SO

SACRED.

SHE MANAGED TO HOLD DOWN A

REGULAR JOB AND DID MODELING AND

WENT BACK TO STRIPPING FOR

REGULAR MONEY.

SOCIETY TOLD ME SEX SELLS.

USE YOUR BODY, USE YOUR FACE.

SHE HATED WHO SHE HAD BECOME.

I CRIED OUT TO GOT, PLEASE

GET ME OUT OF THIS SITUATION.

A FEW DAYS LATER, SHE MET A

YOUNG ACTOR NAMED NOEL.

THE TWO STARTED A LONG DISTANCE

RELATIONSHIP.

AFTER A FEW WEEKS OF TALKING,

NOEL CALLED HER UP AND MADE A

CONFESSION.

HE SAID I WAS ALWAYS HAD A

STRUGGLE WITH GOD.

I WANT TO GET MY LIFE TOGETHER.

I WANT TO BE HAPPY AND SERVE

GOD.

I KNOW IT IS HARD.

I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN DO IT BY

MYSELF.

HE SAID I AM GOING TO THIS

SEMINAR, A CHRISTIAN SEMINAR.

DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD WANT TO

GO?

SHE WENT WITH NOEL.

SHE HEARD A WOMEN SHARE HER

TESTIMONY OF COMING TO CHRIST

AND LEAVING HER JOB AS A

STRIPPER.

SHE SAID GOD TOLD HER TO COME

TALK TO ME.

THAT IS WHEN I KNEW THIS WAS

GOD.

I REMEMBER CRYING AND SAYING

THIS IS TIME.

I NEED TO GIVE MY LIFE TO GOD.

I NEED TO STOP DOING WHAT I AM

DOING.

THAT IS THE DAY I GOD SAVED.

AFTER THAT I COULDN'T GO BACK TO

DANCING.

SINCE BEING SAVED, I NEVER WENT

BACK TO ANYTHING.

GOD HEALED ME OVERNIGHT.

NOEL ALSO ACCEPTED CHRIST.

TODAY THEY ARE MARRIED AND

SERVING GOD TOGETHER.

I ALWAYS FELT LIKE I WAS

ALONE AND LONELY.

NOW BEING SAVED, GOD SAID YOU

WERE NEVER ALONE.

GOD WANTS TO FILL OUR CUP AND

WANTS TO BE THE ONE WE CRY OUT

TO.

I NEED A WAY OUT, SHOW ME.

HE DID.

I AM GLAD HE DID IT WHEN HE DID

IT.

TERRY: SHE IS RIGHT.

GOD DOES WANT TO BE THE ONE.

YOU KNOW THE BIBLE SAYS YOU AND

I WERE CREATED IN THE IMAGE AND

LIKENESS OF GOD HIMSELF.

WE WERE CREATED TO HAVE

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP.

YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS UNTIL WE

HAVE THAT?

WE ARE DEFINED BY EVERYBODY AND

EVERYTHING WE TURN TO IN PLACE

OF HIM.

YET HE WAITS.

GOD WAITS.

WHAT DEFINES YOU IN YOUR LIFE?

IF IT IS ANYTHING OTHER THAN

JESUS THEN YOU HAVEN'T FIGURED

OUT WHAT YOU ARE REALLY CREATED

FOR.

YOU WON'T KNOW THAT PEACE AND

SATISFACTION TAMASA FOUND.

SHE TALKED ABOUT BEING LONELY.

WHEN WE ARE IN THAT PLACE, WE

MAKE A LOT OF WRONG CHOICES AND

ALLOW OTHER PEOPLE AND OTHER

THINGS TO DEFINE WHO WE ARE, TO

DETERMINE THE DIRECTION OUR

LIVES TAKE.

HERE IS THE GREAT THING ABOUT

GOD.

HE IS WAITING.

HE IS ALWAYS THERE, NEVER LEAVES

US.

HE IS WAITING FOR US TO TURN, TO

TURN AWAY FROM THE CHOICES THAT

WE MAKE, AND TO TURN INTO THE

LOVING ARMS OF A SAVIOR WHO GAVE

EVERYTHING SO THAT WE COULD BE

DEFINED BY HIM AND IN HIM.

YOU KNOW, JESUS' LAST PRAYER WAS

FOR YOU AND ME, ASKING A FATHER

WE WOULD BE ONE.

HE ALREADY NEW THE FATHER WAS IN

HIM.

I WANT TO BE ONE WITH THOSE YOU

HAVE GIVEN ME.

SOME OF YOU GREW UP WITH PARENTS

OR GRANDPARENTS WHO TOLD YOU

ABOUT THE LOVE OF GOD.

YOU MADE POOR CHOICES ALONG THE

WAY.

MANY HAVE DONE THAT.

WE SERVE THE GOD OF A SECOND

CHANCE.

TODAY I WANT TO INVITE YOU TO

FIND OUT WHAT YOU WERE CREATED

FOR AND INVITE YOU TO COME BACK

TO THE FATHER HEART OF GOD, TO

THE ONE WHO SAW YOU BEFORE THE

EARTH WAS FORMED, WHO CHOSE YOU

AND SAID THIS IS MY CHILD.

DON'T MISS OUT ON THAT, YOU CAN

HAVE IT TODAY.

IT IS AS SIMPLE AS ASKING FOR

IT.

IT MEANS SURRENDERING.

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LIVE YOUR

WAY ANYMORE.

IT MEANS SAYING GOD, I WANT TO

KNOW WHAT YOU CREATED ME FOR.

I WANT TO KNOW YOU.

I WANT AN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP

WITH YOU.

ASK GOD TODAY TO COME INTO THE

MIDST OF YOUR CONFUSION, YOUR

ALONENESS, WHATEVER YOUR NEED

MIGHT BE.

PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

GOD, I WANT TO KNOW YOU, THE

SAME WAY TOMASA KNOWS YOU.

I WANT THE FREEDOM OF KNOWING

ALL MY CHOICES, ALL THE

FOOLISHNESS AND MISTAKES HAVE

BEEN FORGIVEN BY YOU, NOT

BECAUSE I DESERVE TO BE FORGIVEN

BECAUSE YOU ARE MERCIFUL, GOD.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME, JESUS, BE THE

SAVIOR OF MY SOUL.

I AM A SINNER.

I AM ASKING YOU TO BE THE LORD

OF MY LIFE AS WELL, FILL ME WITH

YOUR HOLY SPIRIT, TEACH ME YOUR

WAYS TO SERVE YOU, HEAR YOUR

VOICE WHEN YOU SPEAK TO ME.

GOD, I WANT TO BE DEFINED BY

YOU.

THANK YOU FOR WAITING FOR ME.

TODAY I AM COMING HOME TO MY

HEART AND ASKING YOU TO FILL MY

HEART AND MAKE MY LIFE COUNT FOR

YOUR KINGDOM.

IN JESUS' NAME, I PRAY, AMEN.

IF YOU HAVE JUST PRAYED THAT

PRAYER, WE HAVE SOMETHING

WONDERFUL WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE

WITH YOU, IT IS FREE.

IT WILL HELP YOU GROW IN YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD,

GORDAN: NATHAN POW AND FAMILY

LOST THEIR HOME AND BELONGINGS

WHEN A TORNADO RIPPED THROUGH

JOPLIN, MISSOURI.

NATHAN AND CHILDREN UNHARMED.

THEIR STORY OF SURVIVAL HAS

BECOME A STORY OF HOPE AND

RESTORATION.

WHEN A MASSIVE TORNADO

RIPPED THROUGH JOB LYNN,

MISSOURI, NATHAN AND FOUR

CHILDREN HUDDLED UNDER THE

STAIRS.

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE ANYONE

SURVIVED.

WHEN I AM OUT HERE, IT MAKES

ME FEEL SAD BECAUSE IT IS JUST

LIKE GONE.

NATHAN HAS DEALT WITH MAJOR

HEART AND LUNG PROBLEMS FOR

YEARS.

THEY STILL KNOW IT IS REALLY

IMPORTANT.

IT IS ONLY STUFF.

KIDS ARE HERE.

FOR A TIME BEING, THIS SINGLE

DAD AND FOUR KIDS ARE IN A VERY

SMALL APARTMENT.

THIS IS WHERE ALL OF YOU GUYS

ARE STAYING?

THERE CAN ONLY BE TWO PEOPLE

IN THE TOP OF THE BED.

IT IS A LITTLE CROWDED BUT -- IT

WORKS.

WITH SISTERS KIM BER, KYLER

AND KELSEY IN ONE ROOM, NATHAN

HAS A ROOM TO HIMSELF.

A TEMPORARY BEDROOM IF YOU

WILL.

BRADLEY HAS IT WORST OF ALL.

THIS IS WHERE I STAY UP.

THIS IS WHERE YOU ARE

STAYING?

GEEZ, BRAD, MAN THIS ISN'T THE

SIZE OF A WALK-IN CLOSET.

AFTER THE TORNADO, NATHAN GOT A

GOOD DEAL ON A DAMAGED HOUSE HE

WANTS TO REBUILD.

HE HAS TO BE CAREFUL.

WITH THE HEART AND LUNG

PROBLEMS, HE HAS PUT IN A LOT OF

WORK AT THE HOUSE.

I HAVE WORKED EVERYDAY, EVERY

HOUR I WAS AVAILABLE WITH EVERY

VOLUNTEER AT THAT HOUSE UNTIL

THE LAST WEEK.

OPERATION BLESSING'S JODIE

GEDDES TOLD NATHAN AND THE KIDS

TO GIVE THEM A WEEK.

TEAMS FROM OPERATION BLESSING

AND HOME DEPOT HAVE BEEN AT THE

HOUSE EVER SINCE.

THEY FOUND OUT THEY ARE INTO

FISH TANKS.

THEY ARE MAKING DAD A SPECIAL

PROJECT.

FISH IS SOMETHING WE HAVE

GOTTEN INTO.

I HAD HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

ISSUES.

THEY SAID IT BRINGS YOUR

PRESSURE DOWN.

WE ENJOY IT.

VOLUNTEERS STARTED WITH

OPENING UP THE FLOOR PLAN TO

GIVE THIS FAMILY OF FIVE SPACE

TO SPREAD OUT.

HOUSE NEEDS WORK INSIDE AND OUT.

FROM REPLACING 30 WINDOWS TO

WIRING, FLOORING, LANDSCAPING,

AND MASONRY.

THEY EVEN HAVE TO REPLACE A

BUNCH OF STORM THAT THIS TORNADO

BLEW AWAY.

AND THE CLOCK IS TICKING.

WE CAME OUT WITH JODIE TO

LOOK AT THE PROGRESS.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

PEOPLE ARE WORKING IN EVERY

CORNER OF THE HOUSE.

PILES OF TOOLS AND MATERIALS

EVERYWHERE.

NOTHING IS COMPLETELY FINISHED

YET.

FAMILY IS COMING HOME TOMORROW.

THAT MEANS TONIGHT IS GOING TO

BE CRAZY.

CREW WORKED OVERNIGHT BY

FLASHLIGHT AND HEAD LIGHT.

BY MORNING A LOT LEFT TO DO.

ALL THAT HARD WORK WAS ABOUT TO

PAY OFF.

[APPLAUSE] JUST SEEING THE

OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE, THEY KNEW

A LOT MORE HAD BEEN ACCOMPLISHED

THAN THEY EVER IMAGINED.

[APPLAUSE].

THEN THEY WALKED INSIDE.

OH MY GOSH.

IT WAS QUITE AN OVERWHELMING

MOMENT.

THINK IT IS COMPARABLE TO

WHEN ONE OF THESE GUYS WAS BORN.

IT WAS A MOMENT LIKE THAT.

ALL THE VOLUNTEER LABOR AND

TON OF DISCOUNTED AND DONATED

FURNISHINGS, THEIR HOUSE

COMPLETELY RENOVATED.

KELSEY AND KYLER MADE A B-LINE

TO THEIR ROOM.

AWESOME!

EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT.

WE GET TO HAVE SLEEP OVERS A LOT

WITH OUR FRIENDS.

WHEN I WALK IN MY ROOM I FEEL

LIKE A CELEBRITY.

IT IS AWESOME IN MY ROOM.

CLOSE BY, BIG SISTER, KIMBER

HAS A ROOM OF HER OWN.

LOOK AT IT, DAD.

YOU HAVE A CLOSET, HONEY.

LOOK AT THE CLOSET.

IT IS JUST, IT WAS AMAZING TO

ME BECAUSE IT WAS ACTUALLY ALL

BLACK AND WHITE.

FULLY FURNISHED.

THEY WENT THROUGH EVERY INCH

OF THE HOUSE.

I CAN'T WAIT TO EAT BREAKFAST

HERE.

WOW.

I COULDN'T SLEEP IN THERE, I

HAVE MY CLOTHES IN THERE.

BRADLEY IS ACROSS THE HALL

FROM HIS DAD THAT MIGHT GET

REST.

HE HAS AN ACTUAL BEDROOM AND

ALONE TIME FROM US.

I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG IT WILL

BE BEFORE I LOOK BACK AND GO

TERRY: WHEN A SUDDEN STORM

UNLEASHED ITS WIND AND POUNDING

RAIN, CYNTHIA BLAZE NEW HER

HUSBAND, BERRY WAS IN BIG

TROUBLE.

NOTHING COULD COMPARE HER FOR

WHAT SHE SAW AT THE SCENE OF THE

ACCIDENT.

SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 1ST,

2004, BARRY BLAZE WAS RIDING HIS

MOTORCYCLE HOME.

CYNTHIA WAS BEHIND HIM.

A BRIDGE LAY STRAIGHT AHEAD.

IT HAD JUST STARTED TO

SPRINKLE A LITTLE BIT.

WE WERE DRIVING AROUND HOME AND

RIGHT BEFORE WE GET ON TO THIS

BRIDGE, IT STARTED TO REALLY

RAIN HARD AND WE ARE LIKE, THIS

ISN'T GOOD.

BARRY SHOULDN'T BE DRIVING.

AT THAT POINT WE WERE ON TO THE

BRIDGE.

IT IS A TWO-LANE ROAD.

MY DAD PULLED OFF AFTER THE

BRIDGE.

WE WERE PRAYING BARRY DIDN'T GET

ON THE BRIDGE.

CYNTHIA AND PARENTS WERE

PRAYING AND LOOKED BACK TO SEE

IF HE MADE IT OVER THE BRIDGE.

WE WENT BACK AND THAT IS WHEN

WE SAW A WHOLE BUNCH OF CARS

STOPPED.

WE KNEW.

THE FORCE OF THE WIND AND

RAIN AND WATER ON THE ROAD SENT

BARRY HEAD FIRST INTO THE

CONCRETE BARRIER.

IT WAS VERY BAD.

HIS HELMET UM -- WAS CRACKED IN

THE FRONT AND ALL THE WAY.

THE STUFFING WAS COMING OUT OF

IT.

HIS EARS WERE BLEEDING.

PARAMEDICS RUSHED BARRY TO

THE CLOSEST TRAUMA HOSPITAL

WHERE DOCTORS GAVE HIM NO CHANCE

OF SURVIVAL.

HE WAS SEVERE RI -- SEVERELY

HURT.

HE HAS DETACHED RETINAS.

IN ADDITION INJURIES TO BOTH

EARS WHICH IS UNUSUAL SITUATION

AND SUFFERING FROM HEARING LOSS

AND WAS NOT EXPECTED TO SURVIVE.

BARRY REMAINED IN A COMA AS

DOCTORS DID A CAT SCAN TO CHECK

FOR SKULL FRACTURES.

THEY FOUND NONE BUT BARRY WAS

STILL UNCONSCIOUS.

I CALLED MY SISTER-IN-LAW.

SHE PRAYED WITH ME.

IT WAS WHAT I NEEDED AT THAT

MOMENT.

BARRY MADE IT THROUGHOUT

NIGHT MUCH TO THE DOCTOR'S

AMAZEMENT.

HE WOKE UP THE NEXT DAY AND

REALIZE HE WAS BLIND AND

PARTIALLY DEAF.

IT WAS DIFFICULT AT TIMES.

I ALWAYS KNEW THAT HE IS HERE

AND I WAS JUST GLAD TO HAVE HIM

ANOTHER DAY.

BARRY SPENT A LOT OF TIME

PRAYING.

I HAD THIS INCREDIBLE

SENSATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

TELLING ME EVERYTHING WAS GOING

TO BE OKAY.

GOD WAS WITH ME AND HE WAS NOW

WRITING A NEW CHAPTER IN MY

LIFE.

I KNEW HIS SENSES WOULD BE

DIFFERENT.

I WOULD BE NEEDING TO TAKE CARE

OF HIM A WHILE.

GOD HAD GIVEN ME A PEACE IT WAS

GOING TO BE OKAY.

WHEN BARRY WAS DISCHARGED

FROM THE HOSPITAL, HE HAD TO

LEARN TO WALK.

SPECIALIST PERFORMED SURGERIES

TO FIX RETINAS AND BOTH EARS.

I WAS TRYING TO LOOK IN THE

MIRROR AND COULDN'T SEE MYSELF

AND FEELING FRIGHTENED AND

VULNERABLE.

I BEGAN SHAKING.

IN AN INSTANT MY WHOLE LIFE HAD

BEEN ALMOST TAKEN AWAY FROM ME.

I HAD THE MOST AMOUNT OF FEAR

AND INSECURITY IMAGINABLE.

BARRY WORRIED ABOUT HIS

CAREER AS A WORSHIP LEADER AND

MUSICIAN AND HOW HE WOULD

SUPPORT HIS FAMILY.

GOD IF YOU'LL GIVE ME ENOUGH

HEARING BACK TO HEAR PITCH AND

SING TO YOU AGAIN, THAT WOULD

ALLOW MY HEART TO REJOICE SO

MUCH.

THAT IS ALL I WANT.

AND SO GOD STARTED TO RESTORE

THAT.

FROM THAT DAY FORWARD...

BARRY'S RECOVERY WAS LONG AND

CHALLENGING.

CYNTHIA REMEMBER IT IS FIRST

MILESTONE.

I REMEMBER THE FIRST DAY HE

HEARD THE COFFEE POT.

IT WAS SOME SMALL LITTLE THING.

THAT MEANT A LOT.

EVENTUALLY, BARRY WAS ABLE TO

SEE CLEARLY AND HEAR WELL ENOUGH

WITH A HEARING AID TO RETURN TO

THE MUSIC CAREER.

DOCTOR GREEN WILL TELL YOU BARRY

BLAZE IS A WALKING MIRACLE.

IN MY MIND GOD IS THE ONE

THAT GET IT IS CREDIT.

WITH LIMITED HEARING, BARRY

PINNED A NEW COLLECTION OF SONGS

FOR CODE OF ETHICS BAND.

MOST SIGNIFICANT MOMENT IN

THIS WHOLE HEARING PROCESS, THE

ABILITY TO START RECORDING.

AS GOD GAVE THOSE THINGS BACK TO

ME, IT WAS JUST HUGE FOR ME.

THROUGH THE WHOLE OR DEAL,

BARRY CAME TO REALIZE, NO MATTER

HOW DIFFICULT THE STRUGGLE, GOD

IS ALWAYS THERE TO STRENGTHEN

HIM.

WHAT ALL OF THIS HAS TAUGHT

ME, DEFINITELY, FAITH AND TRUST

IN KNOWING GOD IS THERE AND HE

IS GOING TO TAKE MY HAND THROUGH

THE HARDEST TIMES.

ALTHOUGH I WILL HAVE FEAR, HE IS

WITH ME AND I AM HELD TIGHTLY IN

HIS VICTORIOUS RIGHT HAND.

TERRY: GOD IS ALL ABOUT

TAKING THE CHALLENGES THAT FACE

US IN LIFE AND USING THEM TO

TEACH US ABOUT WHO HE IS SO WE
