The 700 Club - August 8, 2013

After a fiery car crash and desperate prayers, witnesses say angels showed up and performed a miraculous rescue. Plus, Robert started out as the face of the law, but his decision to be a dirty cop put him on the other side. Read Transcript


SOMEONE WITH A BADGE HAS

A LOT OF POWER.

Gordon: A CROOKED COP

GOES ON THE RUN FOR 22

YEARS.

I COULD RUN INTO THE

WOODS, AND NOBODY WOULD EVER

FIND ME.

Gordon: PLUS...

I REMEMBER SEEING THE CAR

COME THROUGH MY WINDSHIELD.

Gordon: -- TWO DRIVERS

TRAPPED.

THE STEERING WHEEL WERE

YOU STUCK IN MY CHEST.

I DON'T MOVE.

I SAW THESE HANDS REACH

PAST ME WHERE THERE WAS NO

ROOM.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

FOR TODAY'S TOP STORIES,

LET'S GO OVER TO THE CBN

NEWS DESK.

Lee: GORDON, THE TRIAL

OF FORT HOOD MASSACRE

SUSPECT NIDAL HASAN RESUMES

TODAY IN TEXAS.

HE IS ACTING AS HIS OWN

DEFENSE ATTORNEY, BUT NOW

HIS STANDBY DEFENSE TEAM IS

DEMANDING IT BE ALLOWED TO

TAKE OVER ITS CASE OR BE

EXCUSED.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: LAWYERS SAY

NIDAL HASAN AS A DEATH WISH,

AND THEY WANT NO PART IN IT,

STATING, "WE DO NOT THINK IT

IS WISE TO HELP HIM ACHIEVE

THAT GOAL."

BUT HIS STANDBY ATTORNEY IS

THERE IN CASE HE CHANGES HIS

MIND OR NEEDS AS VICE.

HE TOLD THE JUDGE, IN HIS

MIND, HASAN ACTUALLY WANTS

THE DEATH SENTENCE.

THEIR JOB IS TO REPRESENT

THEIR CLIENTS, TO PREVENT

HIM FROM GETTING THE DEATH

PENALTY, AND THEIR

PERCEPTION IS THAT THAT IS

SOMETHING HE, IN FACT,

WANTS.

Reporter: IN HASAN'S

OPENING STATEMENT ON MONDAY,

HE ADMITTED THE EVIDENCE

WOULD CLEARLY SHOW HE WAS

THE SHOOTER.

HE WENT ON TO TELL THE

MILITARY JURY HE WAS A

MUCHAHADIN, AN ISLAMIC

FIGHTER ENGAGED IN A

RELIGIOUS FIGHT.

HE SAYS HE WAS TRYING TO

PREVENT AMERICANS FROM

KILLING THE TALIBAN.

HIS OWN WORDS ARE DECLARING

IT IS TERRORISM.

Reporter: HASAN IS

CHARGED WITH THE MURDERS OF

13 PEOPLE, AND THE ATTEMPTED

MURDER OF 32 MORE.

HE TRIED TO PLEAD GUILTY

BEFORE THE TRIAL BEGAN, BUT

THE GOVERNMENT DENIED THE

PLEA BECAUSE IT WOULDN'T

HAVE ALLOWED THEM TO PURSUE

THE DEATH PENALTY.

MEANWHILE, MANY VICTIMS AND

THEIR FAMILIES ARE SUING THE

GOVERNMENT, BECAUSE THEY SAY

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS KEPT

THE MILITARY FROM STOPPING

HASAN.

OBSERVERS SAY FOR WHATEVER

REASON, THE MILITARY MISSED

THE WARNING SIGNS.

I DO COMPARE THIS TO THE

BOSTON BOMBING, THAT THERE

ARE FACTS THERE THAT COULD

HAVE PREVENTED IT THAT THE

F.B.I. HAD THAT THEY DID NOT

SHARE WITH THE BOSTON

POLICE.

I THINK THAT A LOT OF THE

PEOPLE THAT SAW HIS RADICAL

BEHAVIOR WERE NOT REPORTING

IT TO THE PROPER

AUTHORITIES,OR, OR THOSE

WHO RECEIVED THE INFORMATION

DID NOT WANT TO HANDLE IT,

FOR WHATEVER REASON, AND IT

IS DISAPPOINTING.

Lee: MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS AND THEIR STAFFS

WILL STILL GET FINANCIAL ADD

FOR ANY HEALTH CARE PLANS.

A STATUTE IN THE OBAMACARE

LAW SAID THEY HAD TO BUY

THEIR PLANS THROUGH THE NEW

INSURANCE EXCHANGES.

THAT WOULD HAVE MEANT A HUGE

INCREASE IN COSTS.

BUT NEW GUIDELINES WILL LET

THE MEMBERS AND THEIR STAFFS

KEEP THEIR FINANCIAL AID

FROM THE U.S. GOVERNMENT.

THE PENTAGON COULD BEGIN

GIVING BENEFITS TO GAY

SPOUSES IN THE MILITARY BY

THE END OF THE MONTH.

A PROPOSAL WOULD GIVE

SAME-SEX SPOUSES ACCESS TO

HEALTH CARE AND HOUSING

BENEFITS.

THE PENTAGON MIGHT, INSTEAD,

GIVE SAME-SEX COUPLES 10

DAYS OF LEAVE TO TRAVEL THE

STATES WHERE THEY CAN MARRY

LEGALLY.

NOW MORE INFORMATION ON A

STORY WE BROUGHT YOU

RECENTLY ABOUT A REMARKABLE

DISCOVERY IN ISRAEL.

ARCHEOLOGISTS BELIEVE THEY

HAVE UNCOVERED THE REMAINS

OF A PALACE OF KING DAVID.

JOHN WAGGI HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: ABOUT

20 MILES OUTSIDE OF

JERUSALEM, ARCHEOLOGISTS

FOUND THE BEST EXAMPLE YET

OF A FORTIFIED CITY IN JUDAH

FROM THE TIME OF KING

DAVID.

THE CITY OVERLOOKED THE

VALLEY OF ALLAH, WHERE DAVID

KILLED GOLIATH.

BEFORE WE EXCAVATED HERE,

THERE WAS MANY DEBATE ABOUT

KING DAVID, IF HE WAS A

HISTORICAL FIGURE OR NOT.

Reporter: HEBREW

UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR YOSI

GAR FINKEL SAYS EVEN THOUGH

DAVID IS FAMOUS IN THE

BIBLE, NO EVIDENCE OF HIS

TIME AS KING HAD BEEN FOUND

IN HEBRON ON JERUSALEM.

PEOPLE STARTED ASKING,

MAYBE IT WAS STORIES, IF IT

EXISTED.

OR IF HE EXISTED, MAYBE HE

WAS LIVING IN A TENT.

BUT NOT KINGDOMS OR

FORTIFIED CITIES.

Reporter: THAT CHANGED

SEVEN YEARS AGO, WHEN THE

EXCAVATIONS BEGAN.

AFTER A WHILE, IT TURNED

OUT THERE WAS A BIG CITY

HERE, WHICH WAS HEAVILY

FORTIFIED.

SOME OF THE STONE HERE, UP

TO EIGHT STONES.

THIS IS NOT A SMALL

VILLAGE.

THIS IS A REAL IMPORTANT

STRONGHOLD.

Reporter: SOME

ARCHEOLOGISTS CAUTION THAT

THE SITE MAY HAVE BELONGED

TO ANOTHER KINGDOMS.

BUT GARFINKEL IS CONVINCED.

THEY FOUND A 1,000 SQUARE

METRE PALACE AT THE CENTER

OF THE SITE.

IT HAD AN EXCELLENT VIEW

FROM THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA

TO THE HEBRON MOUNTAINS.

ANOTHER BUILDING WOULD HAVE

COLLECTED TAXES.

HOW COULD YOU COLLECT

TAXES?

EVERYBODY HAD TO DONATE SOME

OF THEIR PRODUCT.

WHEAT, BARLEY, LEGUMES, AND

SO ON AND SO FORTH.

AND THEY WERE STORED IN BIG

STORAGE ROOMS IN STORAGE

HOUSES.

Reporter: AND THERE

WERE NO PICK BONES FOUND AT

THE SITE, SHOWING THAT

PEOPLE FOLLOWED THE BIBLICAL

COMMANDMENT AGAINST EATING

PORK.

HE SAYS ALL OF THE

DISCOVERIES ADD UP.

IT IS DIFFERENT FROM THE

PHILISTINES.

Reporter: THE DIG WILL

SOON BE FINISHED AS

ARCHEOLOGISTS LOOK FOR MORE

ANSWERS AT ANOTHER

EXCAVATION SITE.

THIS AREA IS GOING TO BE

DEVELOPED INTO A NATIONAL

PARK.

TO DEVELOP THIS PLACE TO BE

A TOURIST AREA, AND PEOPLE

FROM ISRAEL AND ABROAD CAN

COME, AND THEY CAN SEE THE

ONLY PLACE IN THE WORLD

WHERE YOU CAN SEE A CITY

FROM THE TIME OF KING

DAVID.

Reporter: JOHN WAGGI,

CBN NEWS.

Lee: AMAZING

DISCOVERY.

THOSE ARE TODAY'S TOP

STORIES FROM CBN NEWS.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL HAVE

THE REST OF TODAY'S "700

CLUB" AFTER THIS.

Gordon: ROBERT DAVIS

WAS ONE OF AMERICA'S

LONGEST-RUNNING FUGITIVES,

HE WAS HUNTED BY THE F.B.I.

AND U.S. MARSHALS FOR 22

YEARS.

BUT BEFORE ROBERT WAS A

FUGITIVE, HE WAS A COP.

Reporter: ROBERT LEON

DAVID WAS A CROOKED COP.

JUST ABOUT EVERY CRIME

YOU COULD NAME, WE DID.

AND ALL OF THE WHILE, WE

WERE WEARING THE BADGE.

SOMEONE WITH A BADGE HAS A

LOT OF POWER.

Reporter: HE GREW UP A

HARD-HEADED CHILD IN THE

CARE OF HIS CHRISTIAN

GRANDMOTHER.

SHE USED BIBLE STORIES TO

TEACH HIM RIGHT FROM WRONG.

SHE SAID ONE DAY YOU WILL

REMEMBER -- WHEN I'M GONE,

YOU WILL REMEMBER THE THINGS

I'M TELLING YOU NOW.

Reporter: HE JOINED THE

NEW ORLEANS POLICE

DEPARTMENT WITH GOOD

INTENTIONS AND OUTSTANDING

ABILITY.

I WENT ON WITH GOOD HOPES

AND TRYING TO, AS MUCH AS

ONE MAN CAN, CHANGE THE

WORLD.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE FEW

PLACES THAT COULD.

AND I WENT ON THE FORCE WITH

THE INTENTIONS OF BEING

HONOURABLE.

Reporter: BUT HIS IDEAS

OF CHANGING THE WORLD WERE

CHALLENGED HIS FIRST DAY ON

THE JOB.

THE SENIOR OFFICER I'M

RIDING WITH, 17 YEARS OF

EXPERIENCE, STARTED STOPPING

GUYS FOR NO REASON.

STARTED SEARCHING GUYS FOR

NO REASON.

STARTED STOPPING VEHICLES

FOR NO REASON.

HE WAS DOING EVERYTHING THE

ACADEMY SAID DON'T DO.

Reporter: HE FILED A

COMPLAINT WITH SUPERVISORS,

BUT THEY CONVINCED HIM TO

THINK TWICE BEFORE BLOWING

THE WHISTLE ON ANOTHER

OFFICERMENT.

AT THAT VERY MOMENT, I

REALIZED WHAT I WAS GETTING

INVOLVED IN.

I REALIZED THIS PARTICULAR

FORCE I WAS ON WAS CORRUPT.

I REALIZED I HAD TWO CHOICES

TO MAKE: EITHER I GET OUT OF

THIS, OR I JOIN THE CLUB.

UNFORTUNATELY, I JOINED THE

CLUB.

EVERYTHING GRANDMA TAUGHT ME

WAS OUT THE DOOR NOW.

I THINK AT THE RATE I WAS

GOING, I COULD HAVE WOUND UP

KILLING SOMEBODY.

Reporter: ROBERT AND

HIS PARTNERS ADMINISTERED

THEIR OWN FORM OF STREET

JUSTICE.

RUB SOMEONE ON MONDAY,

SEX WITH SOMEONE,

UNWARRANTED, TUESDAY, YOU

WERE TRANSPORTING DRUGS ON

WEDNESDAY, AND PROTECTING

DRUG ADDICTS ON THURSDAY.

EVEN INTERNAL AFFAIRS HAS TO

MAKE A MOVE.

Reporter: INTERNAL

AFFAIRS SET UP SURVEILLANCE

AND CAUGHT ROBERT BREAKING

THE LAWS HE WAS SWORN TO

PROTECT.

I WAS LOOKING AT 30 YEARS

IN ANGOLA.

I HAD ALREADY PLACED 27

PEOPLE IN THE SAME PRISON.

THE WORD CAME DOWN, ONCE I

WAS FOUND GUILTY THEY WOULD

RAPE ME AND KILL ME.

I KNEW I WAS GOING TO BE

DEAD WITHIN 24 HOURS OF

BEING PLACED IN ANGOLA.

Reporter: HE DECIDED TO

RUN AWAY BEFORE HE CAME TO

TRIAL.

WHILE OUT ON BAIL, HE

DISCOVERED SURVIVAL

TECHNIQUES AND HOW TO LIVE

IN THE WILDERNESS.

HE MADE HIS WAY TO CANADA

AND LIVED AS A FUGITIVE.

I COULD RUN AND STAY IN

THE WOODS AND NOBODY WOULD

FIND ME.

SO I MADE THAT DECISION.

MAYBE I WOULD COME OUT

SOMETIMES TO GET SOME MONEY,

$20, $30 TO GET SOME CANNED

GOODS.

Reporter: FOR 22 YEARS,

HE CROSSED THE U.S. AND

CANADIAN BORDERS.

HE LIVED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE

HE COULD BE CAUGHT AT ANY

MOMENT.

AND HE BLAMED GOD FOR HIS

CIRCUMSTANCES.

HOW COULD THERE BE A

GOD?

THIS GOD THING IS A

CHARADE.

IT CAN'T BE TRUE.

AND, PLEASE, DON'T MENTION

JESUS CHRIST.

I HAD AN AFFINITY FOR

DISLIKEING HIM. DISLIKEING HIM.

I BECAME AN ATHEIST.

Reporter: AFTER YEARS

OF LIVING ON THE RUN, HIS

MIND WAS A MESS OF EMOTIONS

AND REGRET.

ROBERT THOUGHT OF KILLING

HIMSELF.

FOR A STRETCH OF TWO OR

THREE DAYS, WAS GOING

BETWEEN SUICIDE AND ALL

KINDS OF FEELINGS.

SO MANY THINGS STARTED

COMING UP.

AND I BELIEVED AT THAT POINT

I JUST WANTED TO END IT

ALL.

I HAD A PISTOL WITH ME, AND

I THOUGHT ABOUT IT.

Reporter: YET PASSAGES

FROM THE BIBLE HIS

GRANDMOTHER TAUGHT HIM CAME

TO MIND.

ROBERT DECIDED TO TEST GOD.

AND GOD ANSWERED.

I KEPT TESTING HIM WITH

MANY, MANY THINGS.

THERE WAS AN OLD COFFEE CAN

SITTING OUT THERE.

AND I TOOK A ROCK AND PLACED

IT ON TOP OF AN UPSIDE DOWN

CAN.

I SAID, IF I WAKE UP IN THE

MORNING AND THAT ROCK IS

UNDERNEATH THAT CAN, I'LL

BELIEVE YOU EXIST AND I'LL

TURN MYSELF IN.

WHEN I WOKE UP, THAT ROCK

WAS NOT ON TO OF THAT CAN.

I NEVER HAD THE COURAGE TO

LOOK UNDER THE CAN.

WHEN YOU THINK YOU'RE

DEALING WITH GOD IN THE

WOODS IN TENNESSEE, IT IS A

VERY, VERY SCARY FEELING.

I INSTANTLY LOST ALL

ATHEISTIC VIEWPOINTS.

AND I CAME BACK TO MY

GRANDMOTHER.

AND VISIONS OF BIBLE

PASSAGES CAME BACK IN MY

HEAD.

THAT VERY NEXT DAY I

SURRENDERED TO THE POLICE

ENFORCEMENT.

BUT I FIRST SURRENDERED TO

GOD.

I COULD NOT FATHOM A GOD

THAT WAS TELLING ME TO

SURRENDER, ONLY TO BE

SURRENDERING TO DEATH.

IT HAD TO BE SURRENDERING TO

LIFE.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT THE

JUDGE WAS GOING TO RELEASE

ME.

I ACTUALLY THOUGHT I WOULD

GET THE 30 YEARS.

BUT SHE FELT THAT I HAD

SERVED TIME, AND THAT SHE

WAS GOING TO TAKE A CHANCE

ON ME.

SHE TOLD ME THAT.

I'M GOING TO TAKE A CHANCE

ON YOU.

Reporter: ROBERT IS A

FREE MAN.

HE TELLS HIS STORY TO POLICE

ACADEMY RECRUITS, AND WORKS

TO BRING ROGUE COPS TO

JUSTICE.

I FEEL THAT MY VERY

REASON FOR COMING BACK OUT

OF THE WOODS IS TO HELP

PEOPLE.

AT LEAST ASSIST ONE COP TO

NOT DO WHAT I DID.

AND THAT IT WOULD CAUSE A

COMMON CITIZEN TO REPORT A

COP THAT IS BAD.

Reporter: AS HE LOOKS

BACK ON HIS 22 YEARS ON THE

RUN FROM GOD AND THE LAW, HE

NOW KNOWS THAT HE WAS NEVER

ALONE.

GOD WAS THERE FOR ME, AND

HE IS THERE FOR ME NOW.

I FORGOT GOD.

AND I HATED HIM.

BUT GOD DIDN'T FORGET ME.

AND AS MUCH AS I HATED HIM,

HE LOVED ME.

Gordon: AND GOD HASN'T

FORGOTTEN YOU.

YOU MAY HAVE REJECTED HIM.

YOU MAY HAVE THOUGHT, OKAY,

THIS IS ALL A CHARADE, JUST

LIKE ROBERT DID.

THAT THERE CAN'T BE ANYTHING

HERE.

CAN ANY OF THIS BE TRUE?

CAN WHAT I LEARNED AS A

CHILD, WHAT MY GRANDPARENTS

TAUGHT ME, WHAT MY PARENTS

TAUGHT ME -- AND MAYBE JUST

LIKE ROBERT, YOU FOUND

YOURSELF DEEP IN THE WOODS,

WONDERING, STILL AGAIN, WHAT

IS THIS ALL ABOUT?

HOW CAN I FIND MY WAY HOME?

WELL, THE GOOD NEWS -- AND

IT'S GREAT NEWS -- IS THAT

GOD HASN'T FORGOTTEN ABOUT

YOU.

AND HE IS LOOKING FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

JESUS IS REAL SPECIFIC.

HE LEAVES THE 99 TO GO FIND

THE LOST ONE.

AND HE IS CONSTANTLY DOING

THAT.

AND HE IS THERE FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW, IF YOU JUST ASK

HIM.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CRY

OUT AND SAY, JESUS, HERE I

AM.

IF YOU'RE REAL, IF THIS IS

FOR REAL, COULD YOU SHOW

ME?

COULD YOU SHOW UP FOR ME?

AND LET ME KNOW.

NOW, HERE IS THE GOSPEL.

SO OFTEN WE FIND IT VERY

HARD TO BELIEVE THIS KIND OF

THING, THAT GOD REALLY LOVES

US.

BUT HERE IS THE GOSPEL.

GOD MADE YOU.

YOU'RE HIS CHILD.

WE WERE ALL MADE IN THE

IMAGE OF GOD.

WHAT WAS HIS PLAN?

HIS PLAN WAS THAT YOU AND I

WOULD BE IN A GARDEN WITH

HIM.

AND HE'D COME DOWN IN THE

COOL OF THE EVENING AND TALK

WITH US.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTED.

HE WANTED TO HAVE

RELATIONSHIP FROM THE VERY

BEGINNING.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTED.

BUT WHAT HAPPENED?

WELL, WE MESSED IT UP.

WE DID SOMETHING THAT HE

VERY CLEARLY TOLD US NOT TO

DO.

AND WITH THAT CAME THE

KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL.

AND IN THAT, WE STARTED

JUDGING OURSELVES AND

JUDGING ALL OF THE PEOPLE

AROUND US.

NOBODY MEASURED UP.

NOBODY WAS GOOD ENOUGH.

AND WHEN WE LOOK IN THE

MIRROR, WE SEE IT.

AND WE LITERALLY CONDEMN

OURSELVES.

WE JUDGE OURSELVES.

AND WE START THINKING, HOW

COULD A RIGHTEOUS AND A HOLY

GOD HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH

ME?

AND SO WE TURN AWAY.

AND WE REJECT HIM.

BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS GOD

DIDN'T GIVE UP ON HIS

DREAM.

HE SAID, I'VE GOT A WAY.

I'LL SEND JESUS.

AND HE'LL TAKE THE PENALTY.

HE'LL DIE FOR ALL SINS, FOR

ALL PEOPLE, FOR ALL TIMES.

AND THEN WHEN HE HAS

COMPLETED THAT, I'M GOING TO

RAISE HIM FROM THE DEED SO

THAT HE CAN BE THE FIRST

BORN INTO THE NEW LIFE FOR

ALL OF MY CHILDREN.

AND WITH THAT JESUS WANTS TO

BRING A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE,

A LOT OF BROTHERS AND

SISTERS, WITH HIM.

AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE.

AND IF YOU BELIEVE, THEN HE

COMES.

NOW, HE DOESN'T WANT BLIND

FAITH.

HE'LL SHOW YOU.

YOU CAN PUT A ROCK ON TOP OF

A CAN AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

BUT HERE IS THE PATRIOT

PRAYER FOR YOU: JESUS, IF

YOU'RE THERE, WILL YOU SHOW

UP FOR ME?

WILL YOU COME INTO MY

HEART?

CAN YOU MAKE ME NEW AGAIN?

CAN YOU SHOW ME THAT I'M

FORGIVEN?

CAN YOU LOVE ME, JUST AS YOU

SHOWED ROBERT THAT YOU LOVED

HIM?

AND IF YOU PRAY THAT WITH

ALL OF YOUR HEART, HE'LL

ANSWER.

HE'LL COME IN.

THIS ISN'T SOME JOKE THING

THAT YOU DO.

THIS ISN'T SOMETHING THAT

YOU DO AS A TEST.

IT IS SOMETHING YOU DO WITH

ALL OF YOUR HEART.

AND THEN YOU FIND HIM.

IF THIS IS FOR YOU, IF THIS

IS WHAT YOU WANT, BOW YOUR

HEAD RIGHT NOW.

DON'T CHANGE THIS CHANNEL.

BUT RIGHT NOW LET TODAY BE

THE DAY YOU COME OUT OF THE

WOODS.

YOU COME HOME.

AND YOU FIND THAT GOD IS

REAL AND HE IS WAITING FOR

YOU.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU AND I

OPEN MY HEART TO YOU, AND I

ASK THAT YOU COME IN.

JESUS, PLEASE FORGIVE ME OF

ALL OF THE THINGS THAT I'VE

DONE WRONG.

I WANT YOU TO MAKE ME NEW

AGAIN, TO RESTORE ME, TO

CLEANSE ME, TO SET ME FREE.

AND, JESUS, IF YOU'LL DO

THIS FOR ME, I PROMISE TO

FOLLOW YOU ALL OF THE DAYS

OF MY LIFE.

HEAR MY PRAYER, FOR I PRAY

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A BAPTISM,

A BAPTISM OF YOUR LOVE.

LET THEM KNOW THAT THEIR

PRAYER HAS BEEN HEARD, AND

THAT YOU HAVE ACCEPTED THEM

ONCE AGAIN INTO YOUR

FAMILY.

BE WITH THEM.

GIVE THEM PEACE.

FORGIVE THEM OF ALL OF THEIR

SINS.

FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT IF WE'LL

BELIEVE IN OUR HEARTS AND

THEN CONFESS WITH OUR

MOUTHS, WE SHALL BE SAVED.

WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS DO

THAT.

PICK UP THE PHONE AND MAKE A

TOLL-FREE CALL.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, HE

TOOK HOME THE GRAND PRIZE ON

THE REALITY SHOW "TOP

SHOP."

I GOT MY FREE TICKET INTO

THE FINALE BY HITTING A GOLF

CARD AT 100 YARDS, AND

NOBODY ELSE COULD COME

CLOSE.

Terry: HE TELLS US HIS

SECRET TO HITTING THE

TARGET, SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Terry: THE TV SHOW "TOP

SHOT" FEATURES NAVY SEALS,

ARMY VETS, AND F.B.I.

AGENTS.

BUT THE WINNER OF SEASON

THREE OF THIS SHOOTING

COMPETITION ISN'T A MARKSMAN

BY TRADE.

HE IS A 28-YEAR-OLD CAMP

COUNSELLOR NAMED DUSTIN

ELLERMAN.

CHUCK HOLTON HAS HIS STORY.

Reporter: TOP SHOT IS A

HISTORY CHANNEL ANSWER TO

THE REALITY SHOW.

IN THIS WEAPONS COMPETITION,

16 SHARP-SHOOTERS MUST

MATTEMASTER THE MOST

PRIMITIVE OF WEAPONS.

IN THE MOST FIS

SOPHISTICATED.

AT THE SAME TIME, OVERCOMING

GRUELING OBSTACLES.

DUSTIN WENT ON TO WIN THE

TOP SPOT ON THE SHOW.

BUT UNLIKE THE OTHERj

CONTESTANTS, HE IS

SELF-TAUGHT.@w

SO TODAY HE IS GOING TO SHOWúF

ME A THING OR TWO.

OKAY, BUDDY, SHOW ME WHATúÑ

YOU'VE GOT.

WHAT ARE WE SHOOTING AT?

PENNIES, 50 YEARS.

CHEAPER THAN DIMES.

Reporter: LET'S DO IT.

ALL OF THEM DONE.

Reporter: I THINK WE'RE

BREAKING SOME SORT OF

FEDERAL LAW.

I THINK SO.

Reporter: MANY VIEWERS

CONSIDERED DUSTIN THE LEAST

LIKELY TO WIN.

AT ONLY 28 YEARS OLD, HE AND

HIS WIFE, BRITTANY, RUN A

CHRISTIAN SUMMER CAMP IN

LAVALLEA, TEXAS.

"CAMP HIS WAY" WAS

FOUNDED BY MY PARENTS.

WE HAVE TONS OF COOL, FUN

ACTIVITIES.

WE SHOW THEM A GOOD TIME AND

TEACH THEM ABOUT JESUS.

Reporter: THE IDEA OF

COMPETING ON "TOP SHOT"

SOUNDED LIKE A FUN ADVENTURE

AT FIRST.

ONCE I STARTED GETTING

INTO THE CASTING PROCESS,

AND THINGS STARTED GETTING

MORE SERIOUS, I WAS, LIKE,

THREE MILLION VIEWERS -- GOD

CAN USE THIS AS A PLATFORM.

I STARTED TO SEE THAT MAYBE

HE WANTED ME IN THAT.

IT IS REALITY TV, SO THEY

JUST WANT YOU TO BE

YOURSELF.

THAT'S EASY ENOUGH.

I'M NOT AN ACTOR, THAT'S FOR

SURE.

Reporter: DUSTIN SPENT

A LOT OF TIME WITH THE 13

OTHER MALE CONTESTANTS ON

THE SHOW.

MOST OF THE GUYS IN THE

HOUSE WERE GREAT AND

HONORABLE GUYS, SPORTS

GUYS.

I WENT IN THINKING I WOULD

BE INSULTED, BUT REALLY I

HAD A LOT OF RESPECT FROM

THE GUYS.

IT WAS NEAT, JUST ASKING ME

ABOUT MY FAITH, AND LETTING

ME SHARE IN LITTLE WAYS.

Reporter: HOW DID YOU

BECOME THIS TOP SHOT?

IT IS SOMETHING THAT HAS

BEEN IN ME SINCE I WAS A

LITTLE GUY.

A B.B. GUN AND MY HAND.

MY

SUMMER WAS SPENT AT MY

GRANDPARENTS' FARM SHOOTING

B.B.s.

Reporter: DUSTIN TAUGHT

HIMSELF PRACTICALLY

EVERYTHING HE KNOWS ABOUT

WEAPONS.

[LAUGHTER]

ISN'T THAT COOL.

Reporter: MOST OF THE

"TOP SHOT" CONTESTANTS HAD

EXTENSIVE TRAINING WITH THE

MILITARY OR LAW

ENFORCEMENT.

Reporter: HOW DID YOU

BEAT THESE GUYS?

IT WAS PRETTY CRAZY.

IT IS GOD'S FAVOR.

EVEN IF GOD DIDN'T SUPER

NATURALLY HELP ME PUT THE

BULLET IN THE TARGET, HE

GAVE ME MY ABILITY.

YOU DON'T SEE THE 200 PEOPLE

WHO MAKE THE TOP SHOT HAPPEN

BEHIND THE CAMERA.

AND KNOWING HEY, WHEN YOU

CAN'T THROW A ROCK STRAIGHT,

THREE MILLION PEOPLE ARE

GOING TO LAUGH AT YOU ON

TV.

THERE IS A LOT OF PRESSURE

THAT GOES INTO THAT, AND A

LOT OF GUYS CRUMBLE UNDER

THAT PRESSURE.

ME, I WAS JUST THERE TO HAVE

FUN.

I WAS TRUSTING GOD TO EITHER

HELP ME DO GOOD, OR IF HE IS

DONE WITH ME, I'M CONTENT.

Reporter: HITTING THE

TARGET WASN'T THE HARDEST

PART FOR DUSTIN.

THE HARDEST PART IS

SPENDING THAT MUCH TIME AWAY

FROM MY FAMILY WITHOUT ANY

CONTACT.

THE TOUGHEST TIME WAS SIX

WEEKS AWAY, AND ANSWERING

THE QUESTIONS FROM THE BOYS,

WHERE IS DADDY?

IT IS KIND OF LIKE, DADDY IS

OUT OF TOWN.

HE IS WORKING.

Reporter: WHAT IS YOUR

FAVORITE SHOOTING

CHALLENGE.

THE 1022s.

I LOVE 1022s, AND THIS IS

A PERFECTED ONE.

I WAS SUPPOSED TO CUT TWO

TIPS IN HALF WITH IT, AND SO

I DID SO.

I GOT MY FREE TICKET INTO

THE FINALE BY HITTING A GOLF

BALL AT 100 YARDS WITH IT,

AND NOBODY ELSE COULD COME

CLOSE.

Reporter: DUSTIN

FINISHED THE FINAL CHALLENGE

IN JUST TWO MINUTES, TAKING

THE "TOP SHOT" CROWN.

WERE YOU

SURPRISED?

I WAS VERY SURPRISED IN

HOW I MEASURED UP WITH ALL

OF THESE PROFESSIONAL

SHOOTERS.

Reporter: I COULDN'T

HELP BUT ASK

DUSTIN TO GIVE

ME A FEW SHOOTING TIPS AT

HIS RANGE.

OH, YOU DO.

THERE IT IS!

THAT'S A SMALL TARGET, TOO!

Reporter: DUSTIN TOOK

HOME THE $100,000 GRAND

PRIZE FROM "TOP SHOT."

SOME OF THAT MONEY IS COMING

BACK HERE TO "CAMP HIS WAY,"

TO TEACH KIDS ABOUT GOD'S

LOVE.

AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE, DUSTIN

IS GETTING LOTS OF

INVITATIONS TO SHARE THIS

STORY AND HIS SKILLS.

> HAVE THE NAVY SEALS COME

CALLING?

I WENT AND SHOT WITH THE

F.B.I. THE OTHER DAY, AND

THAT WAS FUN.

I GOT PERFECT CALLS ON ALL

OF THEIR COURSES.

GOD GIVES US GIFTS AND

TALENTS AND ABILITIES ALL

FOR A REASON.

AND IT IS JUST AMAZING THAT

GOD CAN USE SOMETHING EVEN

AS SILLY AS SHOOTING TO

BRING GLORY TO HIS NAME.

IT IS PRETTY NEAT.

Terry: PRETTY NEAT,

INDEED.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE

INFORMATION ON THE PROGRAM,

THE LATEST SEASON OF "TOP

SHOT," ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

WE'LL HAVE THE INFORMATION

THERE.

WHAT A GREAT GUY.

TALK ABOUT USING HIS

POSITION FOR THE LORD.

Gordon: IT IS ONE OF

THOSE GOD OPENING A DOOR

THAT IS WONDERFUL FOR HIM.

COMING UP, TWO SUPER NATURAL

RESCUES FROM ONE CAR WRECK.

AS HE STARTED PULLING ME

THROUGH, IT WAS JUST A BURST

OF WHITE LIGHT.

HE SEEMED TO JUST EMERGE

THROUGH THE DOOR.

AND HE JUST KIND OF FLOATED

OUT ON THE GROUND.

Gordon: FOUR EYE

WITNESSES SEE ANGELS, RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

A GAY BRITISH COUPLE IS

SUING THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND

SO THAT THEY CAN GET MARRIED

IN AN ANGLICAN CHURCH.

THE UNITED KINGDOM'S NEW

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LAW FOR

BIDS THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND

FROM PERFORMING SAME-SEX

MARRIAGES AND SAYS OTHER

CHURCHES ARE NOT REQUIRED TO

FORM THEM.

BUT THE COUPLE SAYS THEY

WANT TO GET MARRIED IN THEIR

CHURCH, THE CHURCH OF

ENGLAND, AND THE ONLY WAY

THEY CAN MAKE THAT HAPPEN,

THEY SAY, IS BY FILING A

LAWSUIT.

THE FAMILY OF AN AMERICAN

DETAINED IN NORTH KOREA FOR

THE PAST NINE MONTHS IS

RENEWING CALLS FOR HIS

RELEASE.

KENNETH BAE IS AN AMERICAN

TOUR OPERATOR AND CHRISTIAN

MISSIONARY, HE WAS ARRESTED

LAST NOVEMBER.

HE HAS BEEN SENTENCED TO 15

YEARS OF HARD LABOR.

HIS SISTER SAYS HIS RECENT

LETTERS HOME HAVE PORTRAYED

TROUBLING HEALTH

CONDITIONS.

THE FAMILY PLANS A PRAYER

VIGIL AT A SEATTLE CHURCH ON

SATURDAY.

THEY HOPE TO PLACE MORE

PRESSURE ON U.S. AUTHORITIES

TO WIN THIS RELEASE.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: ON MARCH 25th,

2009, ON HIGHWAY 6, NEAR

WACO, TEXAS, TWO CARS

CRASHED INTO EACH OTHER

HEAD-ON.

EYE WITNESSES AT THE SCENE

SAW A FIERY CRASH AND ALSO A

DIVINE RESCUE AT THE HANDS

OF ANGELS.

9-1-1, WHAT'S YOUR

EMERGENCY?

THERE HAS BEEN A REALLY

SERIOUS CAR ACCIDENT.

WE HAVE A VEHICLE THAT IS UP

SIDE DOWN AND ON FIRE.

THESE PEOPLE ARE TRAPPED,

AND WE NEED THE JAWS OF

LIFE.

WE NEED HELP NOW!

Reporter: FOR LIVES

INTERSECTED ON HIGHWAY 6 IN

CRAWFORD, TEXAS THAT DAY.

SHERRY AND CODY CLEMENS,

LISA BOWDEN, AND ANTHONY

RUSO ALL MET IN THE MIDST OF

TRAGEDY.

BUT ALL SAY THEY HAD A SUPER

NATURAL ENCOUNTER ON THAT

ROAD THAT CHANGED THEIR

LIVES FOREVER.

I WAS A MILE AWAY FROM

WORK, AND IT WAS RAINING,

AND I LOST CONTROL.

Reporter: HER CAR SLID

INTO THE PATH OF ANTHONY'S

ONCOMING CAR.

I REMEMBER SEEING THE CAR

COME THROUGH MY WINDSHIELD,

AND THAT'S IT.

I BLACKED OUT.

I REMEMBER WAKING UP.

Reporter: THE IMPACT

FLIPPED LISA'S S.U.V.

MULTIPLE TIMES, CRUSHING

ANTHONY'S CAR.

BOTH DRIVERS WERE TRAPPED.

MY FEET WERE ON FIRE.

THE CAR WAS FILLING UP WITH

SMOKE.

THERE WAS FIRE COMING IN

THROUGH MY LEFT DOOR.

AND IT HAD BURNED MY ARM.

I DIDN'T FEEL NO PAIN OR

ANYTHING LIKE THAT, BUT I

JUST KNEW I WASN'T GOING TO

DIE THIS WAY.

THE STEERING WHEEL WERE YOU

STUCK IN MY CHEST AND I

COULDN'T MOVE.

Reporter: ANTHONY

BLACKED OUT A SECOND TIME.

LISA BEGAN TO PRAY.

I JUST REMEMBER SAYING,

GOD, HELP ME.

IT SEEMED LIKE WHEN I HAD

THAT PEACE COME OVER ME,

THAT EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO

BE OKAY, IS WHEN SHERRY

SHOWED UP.

Reporter: SHERRY AND

CODY

CLEMENS SAW THE WRECKED

VEHICLES AND RACED TO HELP.

SHERRY CALLED 9-1-1 AND THEN

SHE CRIED OUT TO GOD FOR A

MIRACLE.

I COULD JUST FEEL THE

GIFT OF FAITH STIRRING

INSIDE OF MY CHEST, THAT

NOBODY IS GOING TO DIE

HERE.

NOBODY.

I'M NOT GOING TO WATCH

ANYBODY DIE.

GOD IS GOING TO SHOW UP.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

RAN OVER TO LISA'S BURNING

S.U.V.

CODY CLIMBED INSIDE TO TRY

TO PULL LISA FROM THE

BANNERING FLAMES.

GOT GAVE HIM THE COURAGE

TO GO INSIDE.

THE NEXT THING I KNOW, I

WAS IN THE CAR.

I WAS UP SIDE DOWN, AND

THE SEAT BELT -- I KEPT

TRYING TO RELEASE IT, BUT IT

WOULDN'T RELEASE.

I HANDED HER THE KNIFE,

AND HE CUT THE SEAT BELT AND

SHE FELL TO THE ROOF.

AND BOTH HER AND I REALIZED

SHE WASN'T COMING OUT OF THE

VEHICLE.

THE ROOF HAD BEEN CRUSHED,

AND THOUGHT NOT MUCH ROOM.

MAYBE LESS THAN EIGHT INCHES

FOR HER TO GET THROUGH.

Reporter: IN A SPLIT

SECOND, THE IMPOSSIBLE

SITUATION TURNED INTO A

DIVINE RESCUE.

WHEN I REACHED OUT, AND

WE GRABBED EACH OTHER'S

HANDS, THERE WAS ANOTHER SET

OF HANDS THAT GRABBED OUR

HANDS.

AS I SAW CODY'S HANDS, I

SAW A SET OF WHITE HANDS

AROUND HIS.

AS HE STARTED PULLING ME

THROUGH, IT WAS JUST A BURST

OF WHITE LIGHT.

BEFORE I KNEW IT, WE WERE

BOTHITO OUTSIDE THE

VEHICLE.

Reporter: SHERRY, WHO

HAD BEEN STANDING NEXT TO

THE S.U.V., WITNESSED THE

WHOLE THING.

GOD SENT AN ANGEL TO PULL

LISA OUT OF THAT CAR.

I SAW THIS BRIGHT LIGHT.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT WAS

LIKE, BOOP, CODY AND LISA

WAS ON THE GRASS NEXT TO

ME.

IT COULD ONLY BE GOD'S

ANGELS PULLING ME THROUGH

THIS.

Reporter: A FEW FEET

AWAY, ANTHONY LAY

UNCONSCIOUS, WITH NO WAY TO

ESCAPE THE FIRE CONSUMING

THIS CAR.

THERE WAS THIS HUGE

EXPLOSION, AND THE FLAMES

COMPLETELY ROLLED OVER THE

CAR AND OVER ANTHONY.

JUST CONSUMED IT IN THE

BLACK, ROLLING FLAMES.

AND I JUST SCREAMED.

I SAID, GOD, SEND YOUR

ANGELS NOW!

Reporter: AT THAT

MOMENT, ANOTHER EYE WITNESS

SAW A SECOND MIRACLE

UNFOLD.

I WAS JUST CRYING OUT,

GOD, YOU'VE GOT TO HELP THIS

MAN.

YOU'VE GOT TO HELP THIS

MAN.

HE SEEMED TO JUST EMERGE

THROUGH THE DOOR.

AND HE JUST KIND OF FLOATED

OUT ON THE GROUND.

SO I BELIEVE THAT GOD SENT

SUPER NATURAL ANGELS HERE TO

HELP HIM GET OUT OF THAT

VEHICLE.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

ANTHONY LOST CONSCIOUSNESS

DURING THE ACCIDENT, HE SAYS

THERE IS NO DOUBT WHO

RESCUED HIM FROM THE FIERY

CRASH.

IT WAS DEFINITELY GOD.

DEFINITELY.

I FEEL LIKE WHAT HAPPENED TO

ME IS A MIRACLE.

I CAN ONLY SAY THAT THE

LORD SENT AN ANGEL AND

REMOVED LISA FROM THE CAR

BECAUSE SHE WAS NOT GOING TO

COME OUT OF THAT CAR.

AND HE ALSO SENT AN ANGEL

AND PULLED ANTHONY OUT OF

THIS CAR BECAUSE HE WAS NOT

COMING OUT OF THAT CAR,

EITHER.

Reporter: SOON AFTER,

FIREFIGHTERS ARRIVED TO

DOUSE THE FLAMES.

GOD HAS ALREADY PULLED

EVERYBODY OUT OF THE

VEHICLES, AND EVERYBODY WAS

ON THE GROUND.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN WE LOOK

OVER, AND EVERYBODY LOOKS,

AND HERE IS THIS HUGE

RAINBOW, JUST COMPLETELY

ENCOMPASSING THE ENTIRE

SCENE.

Reporter: LISA AND

ANTHONY WERE TAKEN TO THE

HOSPITAL WITH SERIOUS

INJURIES, INCLUDING BROKEN

BONES AND SEVERE BURNS.

I WENT THROUGH EIGHT

MONTHS OF REHAB.

AND I'M ABLE TO WALK.

RECOVERY HAS BEEN GREAT.

MY BURNS HAVE HEALED WITH NO

PROBLEMS.

NO SKIN GRAFTS.

THAT WAS ANOTHER MIRACLE

THAT HAPPENED.

IT TOOK ME, I THINK, OVER

A YEAR THAT I WAS GOING

BETWEEN A WALKER TO

CRUTCHES, AND THEN FROM

CRUTCHES TO A CANE.

I FEEL GOOD TO BE WALKING

WITH A CANE.

BUT I STILL WANT TO WALK

WITHOUT ONE.

Reporter: TWO YEARS

LATER, THE MIRACLE ON

HIGHWAY 6 REMAINS ETCHED IN

THEIR MINDS.

A DAY THAT DESPERATE PRAYERS

WERE ANSWERED, PRECIOUS

LIVES WERE SAVED, AND GOD

ORCHESTRATED AN HEROIC

RESCUE.

GOD LOVES US SO MUCH.

I THINK IT IS HIS MERCY.

BEING COVERED AND PROTECTED

WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS, YOU

KNOW, AND THAT'S WHAT IT

WAS.

THE ANGEL OF DEATH, OR

WHATEVER, IT PASSED OVER.

HE DIDN'T HAVE ANY RIGHT.

HE HAD NO AUTHORITY TO TAKE

ANYBODY'S LIFE THAT DAY.

BECAUSE JESUS WAS THERE AND

HE PULLED THEM OUT.

GOD ANSWERS THE FERVENT,

HEART-FELT CRY -- OUR

FERVENT, HEART-FELT

PRAYERS.

GOD ANSWERS THOSE AND HE

DELIVERS US.

Terry: THE EFFECT

EFFECTIVE FERVENT PRAYER.

THAT'S WHY WE ENCOURAGE YOU

TO GET IN THE WORD.

THERE ARE SOME PROMISES

THERE FOR YOU.

AS YOU WATCH THIS STORY

TODAY, I HOPE THAT YOUR

FAITH HAS BEEN BUILT TO

BELIEVE FOR YOUR NEED THAT

THE SAME GOD WHO HEARD THE

CRY IN THE MOMENT OF THAT

ACCIDENT FOR THESE PEOPLE

HEARS YOUR CRY TODAY, AND

WANTS TO SPEAK AND MOVE IN

THE MIDST OF YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCES.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU, BUT

FIRST HERE ARE SOME ANSWERS

TO PRAYER TO ENCOURAGE IN

YOUR FAITH.

PAMELA, WHO IS FROM WAR SAW,

MISSOURI, HAD SUFFERED WITH

SEVERE ABDOMINAL PAIN EVERY

DAY OF HER LIFE.

AT TIMES DOCTORS DIDN'T

THINK SHE WOULD SURVIVE

BECAUSE SHE COULDN'T EAT.

ON OCCASION, THE PAIN WAS SO

BAD SHE WOULD PASS OUT.

SHE SAW MANY DOCTORS WHO

COULD NOT IDENTIFY THE

PROGRAM.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND GORDON,

GOD GAVE YOU A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU'VE BEEN CRYING OUT FOR

YEARS OF HEALING, AND GOD

HAS HEARD YOUR PRAYER.

GOD CLAIMED THAT WORD, AND

PAMELA HASN'T HAD ANY

PROBLEM SINCE.

AND SHE CAN EAT NORMALLY.

Gordon: SHE IS CAROL,

WHO COULDN'T SWALLOW FOOD

VERY WELL.

SHE HAD A PERSISTENT

METALLIC TASTE IN HER

MOUTH.

THE DOCTOR TOLD HER SHE HAD

A SPLIT ESOPHAGUS.

SHE WENT ON A RESTRICTED

DIET.

SHE SUFFERED FOR MORE THAN

THREE YEARS.

THEN ONE DAY WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB," TERRY, YOU HAD A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

YOUR STOMACH AND ESOPHAGUS

HAVE A PROBLEM.

YOU HAVE A METALLIC TASTE IN

YOUR MOUTH.

GOD IS HEALING FROM THAT.

CAROL CLAIMED, THE METALLIC

TASTE WENT AWAY, SHE EATS

WHATEVER FOOD SHE WANTS, AND

SHE IS PRAISING GOD.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.

GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

HHE LOVES US ALL.

AND WHAT HE WANTS TO DO IS

BEEN OUR VERY PRESENT HELP

IN TIME OF NEED.

SO WHAT'S YOUR NEED, AND IS

GOD BIG ENOUGH TO TAKE CARE

OF YOUR NEED?

IT MAY NOT BE AS SEVERE AS

BEING TRAPPED IN A CAR WITH

A STEERING WHEEL CRUSHING

YOUR CHEST, AND YOU NEED TO

SOMEHOW BE SUPER NATURALLY

TRANSPORTED OUT OF THAT CAR,

BUT WHAT IS YOUR NEED.

GOD IS ABLE.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS HAVE

FAITH IN HIM.

THAT'S WHAT JESUS SAID, THAT

THAT'S THE KEY TO MIRACLES,

HAVE FAITH IN GOD.

AND HE ADDED, WHEN YOU

PRAYER, BELIEVE THAT YOU

HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED, AND

YOU WILL HAVE IT.

SO WHEN WERE YOUR NEEDS

MET?

WELL, THEY WERE MET 2,000

YEARS AGO ON A CROSS JUST

OUTSIDE JERUSALEM.

AND BY HIS STRIPES YOU WERE

HEALED.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE

ALREADY RECEIVED, AND YOU

WILL HAVE IT.

NOW, I CALL FAITH AN

ACTION.

IT'S AN ACT.

IT'S A WONDERFUL VERB.

SO ACT YOUR FAITH.

AND IN AN ACT OF FAITH,

PLACE YOUR HAND ON THAT AREA

OF THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

IF YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR

FINANCES, LAY HANDS ON YOUR

POCKETBOOK, ON YOUR

CHECKBOOK, ON YOUR WALLET.

LET'S BELIEVE GOD.

IF IT'S FOR YOUR FAMILY, LAY

HANDS ON A PICTURE OF THEM.

LET'S BELIEVE GOD.

AND HE SAYS, IF TWO OR MORE

AGREE TOUCHING ANYTHING, IT

SHALL BE DONE.

THOSE ARE HIS WORDS.

WE CAN RELY ON THEM.

WE CAN TRUST THEM.

SO PLACE A HAND ON IT.

LET'S BELIEVE AND LET GOD DO

ALL OF THE REST.

PRAY WITH US.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE WITH YOU, AND

AS PEOPLE ARE ACTING THEIR

FAITH AND LAYING A HAND ON

THAT AREA OF THE BODY THAT

NEEDS HEALING, WE COME INTO

AGREEMENT WITH THEM NOW.

AND WE SAY TO THEM NOW, OUT

LOUD -- TOGETHER WE SAY OUT

LOUD BE HEALED AND BE MADE

WHOLE IN JESUS' NAME.

BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS

CHRIST, I WAS HEALED AND I

AM HEALED NOW.

I RECEIVE IT, I BELIEVE IT,

AND I DECLARE IT OVER MY

BODY NOW.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE

BEEN SUFFERING WITH SEVERE

MIGRAINES.

IT IS AROUND YOUR SINUS

AREA, BUT PARTICULARLY A

PROBLEM AROUND YOUR RIGHT

EYE AND INTO THE TEMPLE.

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU NOW.

HE IS TAKING IT AWAY.

YOU JUST FELT LIKE A COOL

BREATH GO THROUGH YOUR

HEAD.

IT IS JUST AMAZING THAT IT

IS GONE.

AND GOD JUST WANTS TO

REASSURE YOU IT'S NEVER

COMING BACK.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE IN

FEAR ANY LONGER.

YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED.

YOU HAVE BEEN RESTORED NOW.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU'VE GOT A

BLOOD CONDITION, WHERE YOU

HAVE LOW WHITE CELL COUNT.

THE DOCTORS ARE VERY

CONCERNED.

IT'S LEADING TO ALL KINDS OF

OTHER INFECTIONS BECAUSE

YOUR

BODY CAN'T DEFEND

ITSELF.

BUT GOD IS ABLE

, AND HE IS

ABLE TO HEAL YOU NOW, IN

JESUS' NAME.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE -- IT'S NOT REAL

LARGE.

IT'S A SMALL GOYTER THAT IS

ON YOUR THYROID.

GOD IS GOING TO HEAL THAT

FOR YOU NOW, AND IT IS GOING

TO BEGIN TO LOSE SIZE AND GO

AWAY.

Gordon: SOMEONE JUST

HEARD TERRY SAY THYROID, AND

YOU SAID, PLEASE SAY

PARATHYROID.

AND GOD WANTS TO BE VERY

SPECIFIC WITH YOU, THAT YOUR

PARATHYROID IS GOING TO BE

HEALED.

YOUR BODY CHEMICAL IS GOING

TO BE NORMAL, AND WHAT YOU

NEED FOR DAY-TO-DAY LIVING

IS GOING TO BE SUPPLIED FOR

YOU NOW.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE WHO HEARD THAT REPORT

ON THE ESOPHAGUS, AND YOU

ARE HAVING A LOT OF TROUBLE

WITH YOUR ESOPHAGUS.

GOD IS HEALING THAT ACID

REFLUX, AND HEALING THE

DAMAGED TISSUE THERE.

JUST RECEIVE IT FROM HIM

NOW, IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU WERE IN A CAR

ACCIDENT, AND YOU RECEIVED A

BLOW TO YOUR ABDOMEN.

AND THERE IS LINGERING

DAMAGE.

I THINK SPECIFICALLY TO THE

LIVER.

AND GOD IS ABLE -- HE IS

ABLE TO RESTORE TISSUE.

HE IS ABLE TO GIVE LIFE

WHERE THERE IS NO LIFE.

AND SO HE IS SPEAKING LIFE

TO YOU NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE HEALED.

Terry: AND THE SAME

THING TO SOMEONE WHO HAS A

DETERIORATING RIGHT

HIPBONE.

GOD IS HEALING AND RESTORING

THAT BONE TO YOU.

ACTUALLY CREATIVELY

RESTORING THAT TO YOU.

THAT PAIN IS GOING TO BE

GONE.

YOU'RE GOING TO WALK CLEARLY

AGAIN.

Gordon: AND FOR THOSE

WE DIDN'T HAVE WORDS FOR, WE

CLAIM THIS WORD FROM PSALMS,

THAT WE BLESS THE LORD.

OH, MY SOUL, WE DO NOT

FORGET ALL OF YOUR BENEFITS

BECAUSE YOU FORGIVE ALL OF

OUR INIQUITY.

ALL OF IT IS GONE.

AND YOU HEAL ALL OUR

DISEASES.

ALL OF THEM ARE HEALED BY

YOU.

WE THANK YOU FOR IT, JESUS.

WHEN WE RECEIVE YOU, WE

RECEIVE ALL THAT WE NEED.

BE WITH US NOW, FOR WE ASK

IT IN YOUR NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Gordon: IF YOU'VE BEEN

TOUCHED BY GOD, WE WANT TO

SHARE IN YOUR GOOD REPORT.

Gordon: RACHEL

HERNANDEZ WORKS LONG HOURS

TO PROVIDE FOR HER FAMILY OF

EIGHT, BUT SHE STILL FINDS

TIME TO HELP HUNDREDS OF

OTHERS IN HER COMMUNITY.

Reporter: ON A LONG

HIGHWAY BETWEEN SAN ANTONIO

AND EL PASO, TEXAS, RACHEL

HERNANDEZ WORKS AS A

JANITORIAL SUPERVISOR AT A

HIGHWAY REST STOP.

SHE GETS UP AT 4:00 EVERY

MORNING TO GO TO WORK JUST

SO SHE CAN PROVIDE FOR HER

FAMILY.

IT IS KIND OF HARD

SOMETIMES TO GET UP AND JUST

WALK, OR JUST GET UP AND TRY

AND START YOUR DAY.

IT IS VERY HARD TO BE ABLE

TO PICK UP GROCERIES, TO PAY

THE LIGHT BILL, FIX MY CAR

IF IT BREAKS DOWN.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO

START.

I HAVE TO BE THERE.

AND I HAVE TO TO BE THE

STRONGEST ONE.

Reporter: RACHEL

SUPPORTS A FAMILY OF EIGHT

WHO ALL LIVE IN A

THREE-BEDROOM MOBILE HOME.

HER HUSBAND, RUBIN, IS

UNABLE TO WORK.

HE IS HAVING ONGOING

CHEMOTHERAPY FOR BLADDER

CANCER.

IT IS HARD FOR ME NOT TO

WORK.

I HAVE ALWAYS WORKED.

AND NOW I CAN'T WORK.

Reporter: THE PASTOR

SAYS THE HERNANDEZ FAMILY IS

NOT ALONE.

THERE ARE APPROXIMATELY

900 FAMILIES WHO LIVE IN

THIS AREA, AND THEY SAY THE

STATISTICS IS THAT 90% OF

THEM ARE IN POVERTY.

Reporter: BUT THERE IS

HELP FOR THESE FAMILIES.

MIKE RUNS A FOOD

FAMILY.

Reporter: RACHEL

DECIDED TO BE PART OF

HELPING HER NEIGHBORS WHO

WERE STRUGGLING, JUST AS SHE

WAS.

THE FIRST TIME I GAVE OUT

A BOX, IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE

THE BIGGEST PERSON IN THE

WORLD.

LIKE, OH, MY GOD, I JUST

GAVE OUT A BOX OF FOOD TO

SOMEBODY THAT REALLY NEEDED

IT.

IT IS NOT JUST ME.

IT'S THEM, TOO.

SHE KNOWS THE NEEDS OFORE

OF HER COMMUNITY.

SHE HAS BEEN HERE 38 YEARS.

I THINK RACHEL OUGHT TO BE

MAYOR.

SHE HAS SHARED WHAT

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

GIVEN TO COWBOY FELLOWSHIP,

AND COWBOY FELLOWSHIP HAS

GIVEN TO RACHEL, AND NOW SHE

MAKES SURE EVERYBODY

RECEIVES THE SAME BLESSING.

I NEVER KNEW THAT THERE

WAS STILL PEOPLE OUT THERE

THAT CARED LIKE THAT.

I REALLY DIDN'T.

Terry: KELLY SAYS, "FOR

YEARS MY NIECE HAS BEEN

STRUGGLING WITH SEVERAL

ATTEMPTS OF SUICIDE AND

CUTTERING HERSELF.

IS IT POSSIBLE FOR SOMEONE

TO BE SO LOST THEY CAN'T GET

BACK TO GOD?

WHAT CAN I TELL HER TO HELP

HER GET BACK TO GOD?"

Gordon: KELLY, NUMBER

ONE, I WOULD BE PRAYING FOR

HER EARNESTLY AND WATCHING

FOR THE CHANGE.

CAN SOMEBODY BE SO LOST THAT

THEY CAN'T GET BACK TO GOD?

NO.

THE PSALMIST SAID, "I MADE

MY BED IN HELL, AND BEHOLD

YOU WERE THERE."

GOD IS ABLE TO REACH

ANYONE.

THE PRODIGAL, HE WENT OFF TO

A FAR COUNTRY.

BUT WHAT WAS IT THAT TURNED

THE PRODIGAL?

HERE HE IS, HE HAS WASTED

THE INHERITANCE THAT HIS DAD

HAS GIVEN HIM.

HE HAS WASTED IT, AND NOW HE

IS FEEDING PIGS.

WHAT CAUSED HIM TO FINALLY

WAKE UP?

THE BIBLE SAYS HE CAME TO

HIMSELF WHEN HE STARTED

LOOKING AT THE FOOD THE PIGS

WERE EATING AND WAS

ENVIOUS.

SO PRAY THAT THERE WOULD BE

THAT KIND OF TURN, THAT THEY

WOULD ACTUALLY COME TO

THEMSELVES AND REALIZE HOW

MUCH BETTER IT IS TO BE WITH

GOD THAN TO BE AWAY FROM

HIM.

Terry: OKAY, THIS IS

CHERYL WHO WANTS TO

KNOW, "MY DAUGHTER GAVE HER

LIFE TO CHRIST AT A YOUNG

AGE, AND NOW SHE IS AN ADULT

AND HAS SERIOUS DOUBTS ABOUT

THE BIBLE AND GOD.

IS SHE STILL SAVED?"

Gordon: CHERYL, I WOULD

SAY ABSOLUTELY.

ALL WHO CALL IN THE NAME OF

THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.

NOW, DO CHRISTIANS GO

THROUGH DOUBTS?

YEAH.

AND GOD WANTS TO ANSWER

THOSE.

DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE HARD

QUESTIONS.

HE DOESN'T WANT US TO HAVE

BLIND FAITH.

THE REASON HE HAS GIVEN US A

BRAIN IS SO WE CAN USE IT.

FIND THE QUESTIONS SHE IS

ASKING AND THEN DO SOME

RESEARCH.

THERE ARE SO MANY RESOURCES

AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET.

WE'D LOVE TO ANSWER WHATEVER

QUESTIONS SHE'S GOT.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM JESUS FROM

MATTHEW 28: "THOUGH I AM

WITH YOU ALWAYS, EVEN TO THE

END OF THE AGE."
