The 700 Club - August 28, 2013

Finalist from HGTV's Design Star, Jeribai Tascoe shares why faith is important to him. Plus, Resia's arthritis in her shoulder was debilitating, but no match for God's power. Read Transcript


Lee: SIX COUNTRIES --

I WANTED TO GET OUT AND

SEE THE WORLD.

Lee: ONE YEAR, AND THE

EDUCATION OF A LIFETIME.

GOD TOTALLY BROKE DOWN

EVERY PART OF ME.

Lee: AND THEN A

CRIPPLING PAIN HEALED IN AN

INSTANT.

I SAID, WOW, THAT'S ME!

Lee: PLUS, THE

RUNNER-UP FROM HGTV'S STAR.

DESIGN TIPS FROM JERIBY

TASCO.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, THANK YOU,

AND WELCOME.

THIS IS THE ANNIVERSARY OF A

VERY SPECIAL EVENT THAT TOOK

PLACE IN AMERICA.

THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE MARCH

ON WASHINGTON, AND THE

FAMOUS SPEECH GIVEN BY

MARTIN LUTHER KING.

THE "I HAVE A DREAM"

SPEECH.

WE HAVE SEVERAL OF HIS

PRODGINY, CHILDREN, AND SO

FORTH, THAT WILL BE TALKING

TODAY.

HAVE YOU SEEN CLIPS LATELY?

Wendy: I HAVEN'T SEEN

IT YET.

I CAN'T WAIT.

Pat: IT IS A VERY

MOVING MOMENT.

AND THEY HAD HOLLYWOOD STARS

CHARLTON HESTON AND BURT

LANCASTER, JUST A WHOLE

BUNCH OF THEM SINGING.

IT WAS QUITE AN EVENT.

A SIMINAL MOMENT IN CIVIL

RIGHTS IN AMERICA.

AFTER DAYS OF TALKING, IT

LOOKS LIKE THE U.S. AND ITS

ALLIES COULD LAUNCH A STRIKE

ON SYRIA AT ANY TIME.

Wendy: AND ISRAEL IS

GETTING READY IN CASE SYRIA

RETALIATES AGAINST THEM, AND

THE TENSION IN THE MIDDLE

EAST COULD HIT AMERICANS IN

THE POCK BOOK.

POCKETBOOK.

Reporter: STRONG WORDS

FROM THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION BUILDS IN THE

CASE AGAINST SYRIA.

THERE IS NO DOUBT WHO IS

RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS HEINOUS

USE OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN

SYRIA.

THE SYRIAN REGIME.

Reporter: BUT STILL NO

DECISION TODAY ON HOW THE

U.S. WILL RESPOND.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

POSITIONED MILITARY ASSETS

IN THE REGION, AND THE

PENTAGON HAS IDENTIFIED

POTENTIAL TARGETS, MOST

LIKELY CHEMICAL WEAPONS'

SITES, AND MILITARY

INSTALLATIONS.

AND NOW THEY WAIT ON THE

PRESIDENT'S ORDERS.

WE ARE READY TO GO.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE IS CONSULTING WITH

HOUSE AND SENATE LEADERS AND

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND VICE

PRESIDENT BIDEN HAVE BEEN ON

THE PHONE WITH WORLD

LEADERS, TRYING TO GAINFUL

INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT.

KEY U.S. ALLIES ARE ON BOARD

FOR MILITARY RESPONSE.

THE QUESTION NOW FOR US

IS ARE WE MORE LIKELY TO

DETER THE FUTURE USE OF

CHEMICAL WEAPONS BY ACTING

OR NOT ACTING.

Reporter: THE ARAB

LEAGUE RELEASED A STATEMENT

HOLDING ASSAD RESPONSIBLE

FOR THE ATTACK, AND CALLED

ON THE U.N. IS RESPOND, BUT

STOPPED SHORT OF CALLING FOR

MILITARY ACTION.

THE U.N. IS NOT LIKELY TO

GIVE ITS SUPPORT, BUT WHITE

HOUSE OFFICIALS SAY ASSAD'S

ACTIONS POSE A DIRECT THREAT

TO U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY,

GIVING PRESIDENT OBAMA LEGAL

JUSTIFICATION FOR

LAWMPLEGIN LAUNCHING A

STRIKE WITHOUT U.N.

AUTHORIZATION.

MEANWHILE, SYRIA STANDS BY

ITS WARNING THAT IT WILL

RESPOND TO ANY MILITARY

STRIKE BY USING ALL MEANS.

IF BAS BASHAR al-ASSAD

DID HESITATE TO USE CHEMICAL

WEAPONS AGAINST HIS OWN

SLEEPING CIVILIANS, WHAT IS

TO STOP HIM FROM USING THEM

AGAINST SLEEPING TURKS OR

ISRAELIS.

Reporter: FIGHTING IN

THE MIDDLE EAST COULD HIT

AMERICANS IN THE

POCKETBOOK.

THE PRICE OF OIL ROSE AGAIN

TODAY ABOVE $112.

THAT IS GOING TO MEAN HIGHER

PRICES AT THE GAS PUMP.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, CHARLENE.

WE DON'T WANT TO SEE WAR.

NOBODY WANTS TO SEE WAR.

I THINK WITH ASSAD IT IS A

LOT OF BLUFF, BUT HE IS

TRYING TO I EMULATE HIS

FATHER, WHO WAS A BRUTAL

DICTATOR.

AND THIS GUY, WHO WAS

TRAINED AS A DOCTOR, IS

TRYING TO EMULATE HIS

FATHER'S BRUTALITY.

BUT WE CAN'T LET THAT ATTACK

ON HIS CIVILIANS GOING ON.

Wendy: SO YOU THINK THE

U.S. IS DOING THE RIGHT

THING BY GETTING INVOLVED?

Pat: WE HAVE TO.

BUT WE WAITED TOO LONG.

NOW WE'RE, LIKE, LEADING

FROM BEHIND.

WE'RE ALWAYS COMING BEHIND

BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT ISN'T

A MAN OF ACTION.

BUT IT LOOKS LIKE NOW WE'RE

GOING TO SEE SOMETHING -- I

DON'T KNOW.

IT WILL TAKE MORE THAN A FEW

CRUISE MISSILES.

THEY'LL PROBABLY HAVE TO

LAND TROOPS AND GO AFTER THE

CHEMICAL SITES.

Wendy: WHEN YOU SEE

THOSE PICTURES OF THE PEOPLE

AFTER THEY'VE BEEN AFFECTED,

YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING.

Pat: IT IS HARD,

WENDY.

THE THING WE SHOULD DO IS

TARGET ASSAD.

I SAW ONE COLUMN THAT SAID

ASSAD IS THE PROBLEM, AND HE

OUGHT TO BE TAKEN OUT.

BUT HE IS SUPPORTED BY A

CODERRE OF MILITARY WHO WANT

TO KEEP POWER.

THE A ALAWITES ARE A SMALL

SECT.

THERE IS A SMALL CODERY WHO

HOLD POWER OVER THE

POPULATION.

AND HE DOESN'T WANT TO GIVE

UP THAT POWER.

AND HE HAS PEOPLE WHO WILL

SAY WE'RE GOING TO FIGHT TO

THE END.

WELL, THEY MAY HAVE TO.

RADICAL MUSLIMS LAUNCHED A

BRUTAL ATTACK ON CHURCHES IN

EGYPT RECENTLY.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY.

Lee: PAT, THE CHURCH

HAS SUFFERED ITS WORST

ATTACKS IN CENTURIES IN

EGYPT OVER THE PAST TWO

WEEKS ALONE.

RISLASTIC RADICALISM SPURRED

THAT VIOLENCE.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL FOUND OUT,

THE ATTACKS WERE MET WITH

CHRISTIAN LOVE.

Reporter: THE CITY OF

MINIA SITS AT THE EPICENTER

OF THE PERSECUTION AGAINST

THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH.

THIS IS THE CHURCH IN

MINIA, ONE OF THE DOZENS OF

CHURCHES THAT HAVE BEEN

DESTROYED THROUGHOUT EGYPT.

THIS IS A 100-YEAR-OLD

CHURCH.

AS YOU CAN SEE, IT HAS BEEN

COMPLETELY DESTROYED ON THE

INSIDE.

ONE EGYPTIAN EXPERT SAID THE

VIOLENCE AGAINST THE

CHURCHES IN EGYPT IS THE

WORST IN NEARLY 700 YEARS.

Reporter: THIS

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO AIRED FOR

THE FIRST TIME ON NATIONWIDE

TV, AND IT SHOWS THE INSIDE

OF THE SANCTUARY IS

COMPLETED GUTTED AND THE

ALTER DESTROYED.

NOW THE CHURCH USES THIS

MAKESHIFT ALTER OUTSIDE, AND

THE PASTOR EXPLAINED TO US

THEY STARTED HOLDING THEIR

SERVICES AT 6:30 IN THE

MORNING.

ENGINEERS SAY THE CHURCH

WOULD NEED TO BE TORN DOWN

BEFORE IT COULD BE REBUILT.

TO BE SURE THAT

EVERYTHING IS BURNED, THEY

PUT FIRE IN EVERY PLACE.

BEFORE THIS TIME, THEY MAKE

A SIGN FOR CHRISTIAN PLACES

OR CAUSES OR HOUSES OR

BUILDINGS.

AND IF THE PLACE HAS AN "X"

ON IT, THEY BURN THE PLACE.

Reporter: THE CHURCHES

WEREN'T THE ONLY TARGETS.

SCHOOLS, CARS, AND

BUSINESSES OWNED BY

CHRISTIANS WERE DESTROYED.

MUSLIM RADICALS MARKED

CHRISTIAN BUSINESSES WITH A

BLACK "X" BEFORE TORCHING

THEM.

PERHAPS MOST SHOCKING WAS

THE DESTRUCTION OF THIS

CHRISTIAN ORPHANAGE.

THIS IS A COPTIC

CHRISTIAN ORPHANAGE CALLED

CHRIST'S SOLDIERS.

MUSLIM MOBS DESTROYED THE

BUILDING, LEAVING ABOUT 200

CHILDREN WITHOUT SHELTER.

BUT THEY WANTED TO LEAVE A

MESSAGE FOR THE ATTACKERS,

AND THEY WROTE IT ON THE

WALL OUTSIDE.

IT SAID, "YOU MEANT TO HURT

US, BUT WE FORGIVE YOU.

GOD IS LOVE, AND EVERYTHING

WORKS OUT FOR GOOD."

THEY ALSO WROTE, "LOVE YOUR

ENEMIES."

THIS IS WHAT REMAINS OF THE

BOOKSTORE IN MINIA OF THE

BIBLE SOCIETY OF EGYPT.

THEIR STORE IN NEARBY ASHUTE

WAS ALSO DESTROYED.

FOR THE LAST 150 YEARS,

WE'VE BEEN OPERATING AND WE

HAVE BOOK SHOPS IN THE

STREETS, IN ALEXANDRA AND

EGYPT.

AND IT HAS NEVER HAPPENED IN

THIS HISTORY.

Reporter: ACCORDING TO

THIS EGYPTIAN WEBSITE, MORE

THAN 60 CHURCHES WERE

ATTACKED, FROM MINIA, AL

ALEXANDRA, AND THROUGHOUT

EGYPT.

IT BEGAN AFTER MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD SUPPORTERS USED

THE CHURCHES AT SCAPEGOATS

FOR THE ARMY'S DECISION TO

BREAK UP TWO CAMPS IN

CAIRO.

YET CHRISTIANS POINT OUT

MANY OF THEIR MUSLIMS

NEIGHBORS PROTECTED THEM.

THEY SEE THIS AS THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD AGAINST THE

CHRISTIANS.

EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE BEEN

TARGETED, THEY ARE

RESPONDING WITH LOVE, AS

CHRISTIANS.

WE ARE IN EGYPT TO

SERVE.

WE ARE IN EGYPT TO

DEMONSTRATE THE CHRISTIAN

LOVE.

WE DO EVERY EFFORT TO BE

SELF-RESTRAINED AND TO SHOW

THE CHRISTIAN LOVE THAT THE

LORD HAS TAUGHT US TO SHOW.

Reporter: THE CHURCHES

ARE ASKING FOR PRAYER AND

SUPPORT FROM THE CHURCH

WORLDWIDE.

WHAT HAPPENS IN EGYPT

AFFECTS EVERYBODY.

WE'RE ASKING THEM TO PRAY

FOR THE COUNTRY.

WE'RE ASKING THEM TO PRAY

FOR CHRISTIANS.

AND WE'RE ALSO ASKING THEM

TO PRAY FOR THE GOVERNMENT,

FOR THE EXISTING GOVERNMENT,

THAT THE LORD MAY GIVE THEM

WISDOM, GUIDANCE IN EVERY

DECISION THEY MAKE.

Reporter: WHILE LIVING

UNDER THREATS, THEY VOW TO

CONTINUE THEIR MINISTRIES.

THEY SAY THE BUILDINGS HAVE

BEEN DESTROYED, BUT THE

CHURCH GOES ON.

AND THEIR FAITH REMAINS IN

JESUS CHRIST, WHO PROMISED

HE WOULD BUILD HIS CHURCH.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

MINIA, EGYPT.

Lee: AN AMAZING DISPLAY

OF GOD'S GRACE IN EGYPT.

50 YEARS AGO TODAY MARTIN

LUTHER KING, JR. DELIVERED

ONE OF THE MOST ENDURING

SPEECHES IN AMERICAN

HISTORY.

IT WAS ABOUT HIS DREAM TO

SEE RACIAL EQUALITY IN

AMERICA.

CBN NEWS SAT DOWN WITH THREE

GENERATIONS OF THE KING

FAMILY ABOUT THEIR THOUGHTS

FIVE DECADES LATER.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THAT

STORY.

I HAVE A DREAM TODAY.

Reporter: THOSE FAMOUS

WORDS FROM DR. MARTIN LUTHER

1963, WILL NEVER BE

FORGOTTEN, MORE THAN 250,000

PEOPLE ATTENDED THE MARCH ON

WASHINGTON.

* WE SHALL OVERCOME

Reporter: CBN NEWS SAT

DOWN WITH THREE GENERATIONS

OF THE KING FAMILY WOMEN TO

SEE IF THE DREAM HAS BEEN

REALIZED.

DR. ALVITA KING IS THE NIECE

IT HAS NOT BEEN REALIZED,

BUT WE'RE ON THE WAY.

Reporter: A NEW

THIS WORLD.

>

Reporter: DR. KING'S

SISTER, NAOMI RUTH, ACTUALLY

ATTENDED THE MARCH ON

WASHINGTON 50 YEARS AGO.

SHE SAYS SHE'LL NEVER FORGET

HOW FAR WE'VE COME AS A

COUNTRY.

JUST BEING THERE AND

LOOKING OUT AT THAT SEA OF

PEOPLE, OVER 250,000 STRONG

OR MORE, AND THEN LOOKING AT

THAT WATER, JUST BROUGHT

BACK TO ME MANY, MANY OF MY

SPIRITUAL VALUES.

Reporter: TODAY THE

KINGS CARRY ON THEIR FAMILY

LEGACY AND HOPE THE NEXT 50

YEARS WILL BE EVEN MORE

SUCCESSFUL.

* I NO LONGER AM A SLAVE

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS.

Lee: A SPECIAL U.S.

ENVOY WILL TRAVEL TO NORTH

KOREA THIS WEEK TO SEEK THE

RELEASE OF JAILED AMERICAN

CHRISTIAN KENNETH BAE.

HE IS A TOUR OPERATOR AND

CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY.

HE WAS ARRESTED LAST

NOVEMBER AND ACCUSED OF

HOSTILE ACTS AGAINST THE

NORTH KOREAN GOVERNMENT.

HE IS SERVING 15 YEARS OF

HARD LABOR AND IS SAID TO BE

IN POOR HEALTH.

ROBERT KING, A STATE

DEPARTMENT SPECIAL ENVOY FOR

HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUES WILL

REQUEST A PARDON ON

HUMANITARIAN GROUNDS.

EATING BROCCOLI COULD HELP

YOU AVOID GETTING THE MOST

COMMON FORM OF ARTHRITIS.

RESEARCHERS IN THE U.K.

FOUND THAT A KEY COMPOUND IN

BROCCOLI CAN HELP SLOW THE

SPREAD OF OSTEOARTHRITIS ARE

EVEN PREVENT IT.

IT BLOCKS AN ENZYME THAT

DESTROYS THE CARTILAGE AND

JOINTS.

IT IS ALWAYS FOUND IN

BRUSSEL SPROUTS AND

CABBAGE.

50% WILL GET SOME FORM OF

ARTHRITIS IN THEIR

LIFETIME.

PAT?

Pat: WOW!

I HAVE SOMETHING ELSE TO

ADD.

DR. ROY FROM THE CLEVELAND

CLINIC WAS HERE.

HE IS A TERRIFIC GUY.

AND HE SAID THE RESEARCH AT

CLEVELAND CLINIC HAS

INDICATED THAT BROCCOLI --

BROCCOLI -- IF A PREGNANT

WOMAN WILL EAT BROCCOLI

THREE TIMES A WEEK DURING

HER PREGNANCY, HE SAID IT

WILL ABSOLUTELY IMMUNIZE HER

FUTURE CHILD AGAINST

CANCER.

HOW ABOUT THAT?

Wendy: THAT'S

INCREDIBLE.

I LIKE TO JUICE MY

BROCCOLI.

YESTERDAY I JUICED IT WITH

GREEN APPLE AND IT IS

DELICIOUS.

Pat: SAME THING.

WHEN YOU GET READY TO HAVE

BABIES, KEEP THAT IN MIND.

THREE TIMES A WEEK.

Wendy: THREE TIMES A

WEEK.

IT IS A MIRACLE VEGETABLE.

WELL, IT IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL

SUMMER CAMP.

THIS ONE COVERS SIX

ADVENTURES IN THREE

CONTINENTS, WELCOME TO CAMP

KIBU WHEN WE COME BACK.

AND WHEN WE COME BACK, MEET

JERABY TASCO, AND SEE WHERE

THIS AMAZING SELF-TAUGHT

DESIGNER GOT HIS TALENT.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

ALL WITH US.

THE NORMAL CAREER TRACK IS

YOU TAKE HIGH SCHOOL, AND

THEN YOU MOVE ON TO

COLLEGE.

YOU EITHER GO TO COMMUNITY

COLLEGE OR A LIBERAL ARTS

COLLEGE OR SOME OTHER KIND

OF COLLEGE.

BUT THAT'S THE TRACK.

NOW A GROWING NUMBER OF HIGH

SCHOOL STUDENTS SAY WE WANT

SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

THEY'RE TAKING A YEAR OFF.

WHAT DO THEY DO?

GEORGE THOMAS IS GOING TO

INTRODUCE US TO THREE GRADS

WHO TOOK A WORLDWIDE JOURNEY

DURING WHAT IS CALLED THE

GAP YEAR.

* WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN

Reporter: THIS IS THE

STORY OF THREE

19-YEAR-OLDS.

WHO DECIDED TO LIVE FOR

ALMOST A YEAR OUTSIDE THEIR

COMFORT ZONES.

LADY DOUGLAS IS FROM

AMARILLO, TEXAS.

GOD TOTALLY BROKE DOWN

EVERY PART OF ME.

EVERY INCH OF ME.

DEAR, JESUS, I THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR THIS DAY.

AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

THE WAY THAT YOU PROVIDED

FOR US THROUGHOUT THIS

TRIP.

Reporter: KRISTEN HEND

DRICKS IS FROM NORMAN,

OKLAHOMA.

I HAVE GROWN UP IN A

CHRISTIAN HOME AND A

CHRISTIAN SCHOOL, TO WHERE

THAT'S ALL I HAVE BEEN

SURROUNDED WITH.

I WASN'T EVER TRULY ABLE TO

MAKE MY FACE MY OWN.

Reporter: AND KARA

QUINSHAW IS FROM JACKSON,

TENNESSEE.

AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, I WAS

TIRED OF BEING IN A

CLASSROOM.

YOU'RE IN A CLASSROOM FOR 15

YEARS, AND YOU'RE EXPECTED

TO GO TO COLLEGE RIGHT AFTER

THAT.

I WANTED TO GET OUT AND SEE

THE WORLD.

Reporter: THE TEENAGERS

SIGNED UP WITH CAMP KIBO, A

COLORADO-BASED CHRISTIAN

ORGANIZATION THAT ENCOURAGES

STUDENTS TO TAKE A YEAR OFF

OF SCHOOL IN BETWEEN HIGH

SCHOOL AND COLLEGE.

THIS GAP YEAR TREND IS

GROWING IN AMERICA.

HARVARD, YALE, AND PRINCETON

ARE AMONG THE CHAMPIONS OF

THIS DIRECTION.

LUKE DIRECTS THE PROGRAM.

WE TELL STUDENTS YOU'RE

MAKING AN INVESTMENT FOR A

YEAR THAT IS GOING TO LAST A

LIFETIME IN REWARD.

Reporter: SIX

ADVENTURES, SIX COUNTRIES,

THREE CONTINENTS.

AND IT ALL STARTS WITH

ORIENTATION WEEK.

SITTING IN THIS LITTLE

VALLEY IN BETWEEN TWO

MOUNTAINS WITH A RIVER

RUNNING THROUGH IT.

THEY'RE TAKEN TO ALL

DIFFERENT CORNERS OF

SOUTHWEST COLORADO, TO

BACKPACK, TO ROCK CLIMB AND

MOUNTAIN BIKE.

BUT IN THE MORNINGS, WE TAKE

THEM THROUGH A WORLD-VIEW

CURRICULUM.

Reporter: MORE THAN

10,000 PEOPLE HAVE ENROLLED

IN THIS CAMP SINCE 1996.

WE'RE TRYING TO CHANGE AN

ENTIRE YOUTH CULTURE BY

OFFERING THEM A CHANCE TO

SEE THE WORLD IN A DIFFERENT

WAY, AND REALLY BY TEACHING

THEM HOW TO FOLLOW JESUS.

AND HOW TO DO THAT BY LOVING

GOD AND LOVING OTHERS.

Reporter: THE GAP HERE

BEGAN FOR THE GIRLS ON THE

STREETS OF DENVER.

FOR NEARLY THREE MONTHS THEY

PARTNERED WITH A CHRISTIAN

MINISTRY TEACHING AT-RISK

STUDENTS, AND REACHING THOSE

ON THE MARGINS OF SOCIETY.

ALL THREE FACED RESISTANCE

AT HOME ABOUT TAKING THE

YEAR OFF.

I WAS ROLLING THROUGH THE

MOTIONS OF LIFE.

THERE IS NOTHING GOING ON.

AND I WANTED OUT OF THAT.

I WANTED TO BE CHALLENGED.

Reporter: THAT

CHALLENGE CAME NEXT IN

HAITI, WHERE THEY WORKED

WITH AN ORGANIZATION FEEDING

MORE THAN 8,000 SCHOOL

CHILDREN EACH DAY.

AND IN BETWEEN VISITS TO

ORPHANAGES, FOOD

DISTRIBUTION AND MEDICAL OUT

REACHES, THE THREE HAD

PLENTY OF OTHER PROJECTS

THAT KEPT THEM BUSY.

I THINK LIVING IN

AMERICA, WE LIVE IN A

BUBBLE.

AND SO IT IS SO HARD TO SEE

WHAT THE REAL WORLD IS EVEN

LIKE.

BUT COMING AND DISCOVERING

THE WORLD FOR MYSELF HAS

JUST SHOWN ME HOW BIG THIS

WORLD IS, AND HOW BIG OF A

GOD WE SERVE.

Reporter: FOR THE NEXT

FEW MONTHS, THEY TRAVELLED

THOUSANDS OF MILES, STOPPING

IN THE AFRICAN COUNTRIES OF

RWANDA AND TANZANIA, SERVING

WITH LOCAL CHRISTIAN

PARTNERS ALL ALONG THE WAY.

WE BELIEVE WHEN YOU TAKE

STUDENTS TO THE MARGINS OF

THE WORLD, YOU'LL SEE GOD

PRESENT THE MOST.

OUR STUDENTS ARE LEARNERS.

THE CLASSROOM IS THE

CULTURE, AN IN THE

MARGINALIZED COMMUNITIES.

THEIR PROFESSORS ARE THESE

PEOPLE THEY HAVE COME TO

SERVE.

Reporter: AND THEY HAD

A CHANCE TO CLIMB

KILIMANJARO.

HOW IS EVERYBODY

FEELING?

SLIGHTLY TERRIFIED.

FREAKING OUT.

George: REACHING THE

19,340-FOOT SUMMIT PROVED TO

BE A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE

FOR KARA.

WHILE YOU'RE CLIMBING IT,

YOU THINK OF HO HOW SMALL

YOU ARE.

AND THEN YOU THINK OF HOW

BIG THE GOD IS THAT CREATED

THAT MOUNTAIN.

Reporter: THE NEXT

DESTINATION, INDIA, A

BUSTLING COUNTRY WITH

EXTREME LEVELS OF POVERTY.

ALL THREE SAID INDIA WAS THE

HARDEST AS THEY MINISTERED

AMONG THE POOR.

LANI WAS IMPRESSED BY THE

PEOPLE WHO CONTINUED FACING

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION.

I ALWAYS LIVED IN A

SHELTER WHERE CHRISTIANITY

EXISTS.

GOD HUMBLED ME AND SHOWED ME

I SHOULD NEVER TAKE

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM FOR

GRANTED.

Reporter: IT BEGAN

ALMOST EIGHT MONTHS AGO, ON

THE

STREETS OF

COLORADO.

FROM THERE THE GIRLS WENT TO

HAITI, TANZANIA, INDIA, AND

FINALLY, HERE TO THE

VILLAGES OF PHILIPPINES

WHERE THE FOLKS USE A HALF

BASKETBALL TO FETCH WATER IN

A WELL.

FOR THE GIRLS, IT HAS BEEN A

LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE, AN

OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE

THE DEPTHS OF GOD'S LOVE FOR

THEM, AND ALSO FOR THE

PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER HEARD

THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.

THE LAST EIGHT MONTHS ON

GAP HERE HAS BROUGHT ME

CLOSER TO GOD BECAUSE I'VE

SEEN HIM WORK IN MY LIFE AND

OTHERS LIVES SO CLEARLY.

NEVER ONCE IN THE BIBLE DOES

IT TALK ABOUT AN ORDINARY

LIFE.

BEING A LIVING SACRIFICE IS

MESSY.

IT'S HARD.

IT'S DIRTY.

I WANT PEOPLE TO

EXPERIENCE THE SAME JOY AND

THE SAME COMPASSION THAT I

HAVE LEARNED THROUGHOUT THIS

GAP YEAR.

Reporter: THEIR GAP

YEAR ENDED RECENTLY WITH A

GRADUATION CEREMONY BACK IN

COLORADO.

ALL THREE START COLLEGE IN A

FEW WEEKS.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS,

BAKOLO, PHILIPPINES.

Pat: THAT'S AN IN

SPIRING THING.

I'M SURE WENDY IS ITCHING TO

GO.

IT IS TOO LATE FOR YOU,

DEAR.

Wendy: TO GET A GAP

YEAR?

HOW ABOUT A SABBATICAL?

Pat: YOU'RE NEEDED

HERE.

Wendy: WHEN THOSE GIRLS

WERE CLIMBING KILIMANJARO, I

WAS VERY JEALOUS.

THAT WOULD BE VERY

EXCITING.

Pat: IT IS 19,000

FEET.

YOU CAN DO THAT?

Wendy: I CLIMB THE

MOUNTAINS AROUND HERE --

Pat: THAT IS A LITTLE

DIFFERENT.

Wendy: IT IS A LITTLE

DIFFERENT.

Pat: I GUESS YOU COULD

PREP FOR IT BY GOING UP AND

DOWN VIRGINIA MOUNTAINS.

Wendy: I MAY HAVE TO GO

TO COLORADO AND DO THE

14,000.

SEE IF WE CAN DO THAT.

Pat: PRAY FOR WENDY.

MAYBE SHE'LL HAVE A LONG

SLEEP AND GET OVER THIS.

[LAUGHTER]

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

DESIGN TIPS FROM HGTV DESIGN

FINALIST, JERIBAI TASCOE.

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELL, IF AT

FIRST YOU DON'T SUCCEED, TRY

AGAIN.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT A

DESIGNER NAMED JERIBAI

TASCOE DID, AND HE MADE HIS

DREAM COME TRUE THE SECOND

TIME AROUND.

Reporter: JERIBAI

TASCOE WAS A FINALIST ON

SEASON 8 OF HGTV "STAR."

IT AWARDS ONE LUCKY DESIGNER

THE CHANCE TO WIN HIS OR HER

OWN SHOW.

EACH WEEK, JERIBAI CONTINUED

INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM

CHALLENGES.

ALL OF THE PROJECTS WILL

SCRUTINIZED BY A PANEL OF

JUDGES.

AS A RUNNER-UP, HE IS

THANKFUL FOR HIS TIME ON THE

SHOW, AND HE CREATES HIS

DESIGN SKILLS AND SUCCESS TO

GOD.

Wendy: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," THE

RUNNER-UP, JERIBAI TASCOE.

IT IS A PLEASURE TO BE

HERE.

Wendy: I CAN'T WAIT FOR

THIS SEGMENT BECAUSE I LOVE

DESIGN.

AND I'M NOT VERY GOOD AT IT

MYSELF.

YOU ARE A HUGE FAN OF THE

SHOW, HGTV's "STAR."

OH, YES.

Wendy: SHOW DID YOU

EARN A SPOT ON THE SHOW?

MY WIFE AND I WOULD WATCH

THE SHOW ALL OF THE TIME.

AND ONE OF OUR HOMES WE

PURCHASED WE TOTALLY

REMODELED.

I ENDED UP SENDING MY ONE

HOUSE INTO THE SHOW, AND

THEY LOVED THE WORK I DID,

AND SO THAT EARNED ME A

SPOT.

Wendy: BUT NOT THE

FIRST TIME, RIGHT?

NO.

THE FIRST TIME, I DIDN'T

QUITE MAKE IT ON.

THE SECOND TIME AROUND, THEY

CALLED ME AND WANTED ME TO

BE PART OF SEASON 8.

Wendy: HOW DOES THE

SHOW WORK FOR THOSE WHO

HAVEN'T SEEN IT?

IT IS BASICALLY A REALITY

SHOW, BUT THERE IS A DESIGN

COMPETITION.

THERE ARE DIFFERENT

CHALLENGES THEY PUT THE

DESIGNERS THROUGH.

THEY HAVE

YOU DO ROOMS,

CONVENTIONAL ROOMS, LIKE

LIVING ROOMS OR DINING

ROOMS.

THERE IS A KITCHEN

CHALLENGE -- I ALWAYS

DREADED THE KITCHEN

CHALLENGE.

AND THEN THERE IS SOME

UNEXPECTED.

THEY MAY THROW YOU IN A

SHIPPING CONTAINER AND HAVE

YOU DESIGN THAT.

A LOT OF UNEXPECTED STUFF.

Wendy: WHAT WOULD YOU

SAY IS PROBABLY THE MOST

CHALLENGING DESIGN THEY GAVE

YOU TO DO?

FOR ME IT WAS THE BUS

CHALLENGE.

WE REDESIGNED THE SCHOOL

BUS.

THEY TOOK THE CHAIRS OUT,

AND WE HAD THE WHOLE LENGTH

OF THE SCHOOL BUS TO WORK

WITH.

BUT IT WAS EXTREMELY

DAUNTING.

Wendy: WHAT DID YOU

DO?

I TURNED MINE INTO A

BOXER'S LAUNCH.

THE BACK AREA IT WAS A

TRAINING AREA FOR A BOXER,

AND THE FRONT END WAS AN

AREA FOR THEM TO RELAX.

Wendy: HOW WOULD YOU

DESCRIBE YOUR OVERALL

STYLE?

I CALL MY STYLE FRESH

REMIX.

IT IS BASICALLY A

CONTEMPORARY STYLE.

Wendy: JERIBAI, YOU ARE

SELF-TAUGHT.

YOU DIDN'T GO TO DESIGN

SCHOOL.

YOU GIVE THE LORD A LOT OF

CREATE FOR YOUR TALENT?

ABSOLUTELY.

HE GETS ALL OF THE CREDIT.

I'VE BEEN CREATIVE SINCE I

WAS A LITTLE GUY.

THE COMPUTERS ALWAYS

INTERESTED ME AS WELL.

I WAS DOING COMPUTER-AIDED

DRAWING BY 14, 15.

AND THERE ARE A LOT OF TIMES

WHEN I RAN INTO LITTLE

DEAD-ENDS WITH MY CAREER,

AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO.

AND EVERY SINGLE TIME IT

WAS -- IT WAS A PRAYER,

LORD, HELP ME THROUGH THIS

AND SHOW ME WHAT TO DO.

AND HE WOULD SHOW ME EVERY

SINGLE TIME.

Wendy: AND HE HELPED

YOU THROUGH SOME PRETTY HARD

TIMES, AND TIMES WHERE YOU

GOT PRETTY DEEP IN DEBT.

ABSOLUTELY.

Wendy: HOW DID THE LORD

HELP YOU?

HE HELPED ME FOCUS, AND

HE HELPED ME WITH THAT FRUIT

OF THE SPIRIT, AT THE END OF

THE LIST, SELF-CONTROL.

IT WAS ABOUT LEARNING HOW TO

CONTROL SPENDING HABITS AND

TO BE A GOOD STEWARD WITH

THINGS HE TRUSTED ME TO.

I NEEDED TO BE DILIGENT WITH

WHAT HE HAD GIVEN ME.

Wendy: YOU KNEW THAT

GOD OPENED THE DOOR FOR YOU

TO BE ON THIS SHOW.

WHAT WAS YOUR NUMBER ONE

GOAL WHEN YOU WERE ON THIS

SHOW.

AND HOW DID THE

CONTESTANTS -- THEY PROBABLY

FIGURED OUT YOU WERE A

BELIEVER.

AND HOW DID THEY REACT TO

YOU?

I THINK MY NUMBER ONE

GOAL WAS REALLY TO JUST BE A

MAN OF CHARACTER.

DO MY PARENTS PROUD AND DO

MY HOME CHURCH AND FAMILY

PROUD, PEOPLE I'M CLOSE TO.

AND IT REALLY WAS TO TREAT

EVERYBODY WITH A LOT OF

RESPECT, A LOT OF -- I HAVE

A LOT OF ADMIRATION FOR THE

OTHER CONTESTANTS BECAUSE

THEY'RE PROFESSIONALS IN

THEIR OWN RIGHT.

I FELT LIKE THE UNDERDOG

WHEN I WAS THERE BECAUSE

THEY'VE ALL BEEN IN THE

PROFESSION FOR QUITE A

WHILE.

IT WAS A LOT OF RESPECT.

Wendy: YOU WERE THE

RUNNER-UP, BUT YOU'RE STILL

DESIGNING.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TODAY?

TODAY WE'RE DOING A LOT

OF INTERIOR WORK.

I'M GETTING A LOT OF CALLS,

OF COURSE, ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY, WHICH IS PRETTY

COOL.

AND BECAUSE OF THE INTERNET

AND MY SAVVY WITH USING THE

WEB AND LEVERAGING THAT, I'M

ABLE TO DO A LOT OF DESIGN

FROM AFAR.

I CAN DESIGN PEOPLE'S HOMES

AND SEND THEM PLANS AND THEY

CAN EXECUTE THEM ON THEIR

OWN TIME.

Wendy: A LOT OF PEOPLE

MIGHT BE LIKE ME.

I'VE LIVED IN THE SAME PLACE

FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS.

I'VE BEEN STARING AT THIS

WALL THINKING I WANT TO

PAINT IT.

AN ACCENT WALL?

EVERYTHING IS WHITE.

HOW CAN YOU BREAK OUT OF

THAT?

DO YOU HAVE TO TAKE A LEAP

OF FAITH AND SAY, I'M GOING

TO TRY A COLOR.

I'D LIKE TO TRY CRANBERRY OR

RED, BUT I'M ALWAYS, LIKE,

IT MIGHT BE TOO LOUD.

THE BIGGEST THING IS LIKE

YOU SAID, TAKE A LEAP, A

COLOR LEAP.

GET A SAMPLE OF PAINTER

PAINT ONE WALL, AND LET THAT

ABSORB INTO YOUR SYSTEM.

IT HAS GOT TO BE A COLOR

THAT YOU LOVE.

A LOT OF TIMES WE PICK

REALLY BRIGHT AND VIBRANT

COLORS, AND THEY LOOK GREAT,

BUT YOU SOMETIMES HAVE TO

TONE THEM DOWN.

Wendy: WE HAVE TWO

LAMPS OVER HERE THAT ARE

VERY BEAUTIFUL.

THEY DIDN'T START OUT THAT

WAY, THOUGH.

WE

HAVE THE BEFORE PICTURES,

I'M TOLD.

AND WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A

LOOK AT THOSE RIGHT NOW.

THERE IS THE FIRST ONE.

UH-HUH.

Wendy: PRETTY BASIC.

AND TELL THE STORY -- YOU

WERE ON YOUR WAY HERE

YESTERDAY, AND ONE OF THE

LAMPS BROKE IN YOUR SUITCASE

AND LITERALLY SHATTERED?

EXACTLY.

THE BEFORE SHOT OF THE LAMP

WAS A FAUX FINISHED LAMP.

Wendy: SO YOU HAD TO GO

SHOPPING YESTERDAY, AND YOU

SAID YOU BOUGHT ONE OF THESE

LAMPS FOR 98 CENTS.

YEAH.

THAT'S THE BEAUTY OF BEING A

DO-IT-YOURSELFER.

Wendy: AND THE LAMPS

ARE GORGEOUS NOW.

I LOVE THE YELLOW ONE.

THEY TURNED OUT REALLY

GOOD.

Wendy: JUST THE BOTTOM

PART WAS 98 CENTS?

UH-HUH.

AND WE GOT THE SHADE AT A

LOCAL STORE.

Wendy: I'M GOING TO GO

WITH THIS ONE.

THAT WAS THE 98-CENT

ONE.

Wendy: IT IS A LITTLE

MORE ORNATE.

AND I WANTED TO PAINT

THIS ONE WHITE, SO IT LOOKS

LIKE A PIECE OF POTTERY.

Wendy: WHAT COLOR WAS

IT FIRST?

IT WAS A FAUX FINISH.

THE TOP LOOKED LIKE IT WAS

METAL.

SO I WANTED TO PAINT IT ALL

WHITE, GIVE IT A CLEAN,

CLASSIC LOOK, AND COMPLEMENT

THAT WITH A HERRING BONE

SHADE.

Wendy: AND WHERE DID

YOU FIND THE SHADES?

I THINK THE SHADES WE GOT?

AT TARGET.

Wendy: YOU JUST BOUGHT

THE SHADES LIKE THAT?

I REALLY KEYED OFF THE

SHADE FOR THE DESIGN.

I FOUND THE SHADE I REALLY

LIKED AND THE PATTERN I

REALLY LIKED, AND PAINTED

THE BASE TO COMPLEMENT IT.

Wendy: WELL, I NEED YOU

TO COME OVER TO MY HOUSE

BEFORE YOU LEAVE, IF THAT'S

OKAY, AND TAKE A LOOK.

JERIBAI, GREAT TO HAVE YOU

ON THIS SHOW.

YOU'RE AN INSPIRATION.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: PAT?

Pat: THAT'S ONE WAY TO

GET FREE DECORATING TIPS.

I HOPE IT HELPS.

THE ONE CHALLENGE WE CAN

GIVE HIM IS TO REDESIGN A

NEEDLE.

THAT'S THE ONE YOU CAN'T

IMPROVE ON, BUT MOST

EVERYTHING ELSE.

WHAT A BRILLIANT GUY.

YEARS AGO, I USED TO THINK

THEY WERE REALLY COMING,

OWNED BY THE HEARST

COMPANY.

AND THEY'VE GROWN AND HAVE A

VERY RESPONSIVE,

ENTHUSIASTIC AUDIENCE.

GOOD FOR THEM, AND GOOD FOR

THIS BRILLIANT YOUNG MAN.

BUT THAT WOULD BE THE

CHALLENGE.

YOU REDESIGN A NEEDLE FOR

IT, AND WE'LL SEE HOW GREAT

OF A DESIGNER YOU ARE.

NOBODY HAS BEEN ABLE TO

IMPROVE ON IT.

STILL AHEAD, A WOMAN

SUFFERING WITH SEVERE

ARTHRITIS IS SUPER NATURALLY

HEALED IN AN INSTANT.

PLUS, ON TODAY'S PROGRAM,

WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR YOU AND

YOUR NEEDS.

STAY WITH US.

*

Pat: WE HAVE A

MIRACLE!

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE

MIRACLES?

MIRACLES ARE FUN.

IT IS FUN TO SEE GOD AT WORK

BECAUSE THOSE O OF YOU WHO

THINK GOD IS DEAD, I WANT

YOU TO KNOW HE IS VERY MUCH

ALIVE.

RESIA WORKS AS A CARETAKER

FOR THE ELDERLY, BUT HER JOB

BECAME MORE DIFFICULT FOUR

YEARS AGO WHEN SHE DEVELOPED

SEVERE ARTHRITIS IN HER

SHOULDERS.

A COUPLE OF TIMES THE PAIN

WAS SO INTENSE, RESIA HAD TO

BE TAKEN TO THE EMERGENCY

ROOM.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS

WONDERFUL STORY.

I BEGAN EXPERIENCING PAIN

IN MY SHOULDER.

THE PAIN WOULD TRAVEL FROM

MY SHOULDER DOWN INTO MY

RIGHT ARM.

IT GOT SO INTENSE AT TIMES

THAT I COULD NOT USE MY

RIGHT ARM, AND ESPECIALLY

LIFTING AND REACHING ABOVE

MY HEAD.

OUR DIAGNOSIS WHY A SEVERE

CASE OF ARTHRITIS.

THEY GAVE ME PAIN PILLS, BUT

I DIDN'T WANT TO DEPEND ON

THOSE PAIN PILLS BECAUSE I

WAS THINKING ABOUT THE SIDE

EFFECTS.

THE ULTIMATE ANSWER WAS

GOD.

I WANTED GOD TO DO THE

WORK.

AND I KNOW IT WOULD BE

PERFECTLY DONE.

I JUST ENJOY WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB."

AND AS A MATTER OF FACT,

I'VE BEEN WATCHING IT FOR

MANY YEARS.

SO I HAVE SEEN MANY PEOPLE

BEING HEALED, DELIVERED, SET

FREE.

THAT PARTICULAR NIGHT I WAS

REALLY IN SEVERE PAIN.

AND SO I TURNED ON MY TV

SET, AND "THE 700 CLUB" WAS

ON.

PAT ROBERTSON GAVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

Pat: THE ARTHRITIS GO

AWAY.

THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WITH

ARTHRITIS.

RIGHT AS I SPEAK, AT THIS

MOMENT, START MOVING THOSE

ARTHRITIC JOINTS IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

I SAID, WOW!

THAT'S ME.

I LIFTED UP BOTH OF MY

HANDS.

I SAID, LORD, I THANK YOU

FOR THIS MIRACLE.

THANK YOU FOR THIS HEALING

THIS MORNING.

NO MORE PAIN AT ALL.

I HAVE NOT HAD ANOTHER PAIN

FROM THAT DAY THAT PAT

ROBERTSON GAVE THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, UP TO THIS DAY.

NO MORE LIMITATION OR

ANYTHING.

I CAN DO ANYTHING THAT I

WANT TO DO WITH THIS RIGHT

ARM.

HIS WORDS THAT HE WAS

BRUISED FOR OUR INEQUITIES,

AND BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

WE BELIEVE ON GOD'S DIVINE,

HOLY WORD.

HIS WORD IS TRUE.

BELIEVE GOD.

GIVE HIM A TRY AND TRUST

HIM.

Pat: MAN, WE NEED RESIA

ON THIS SHOW MORE OFTEN.

SHE BUILDS THE FAITH OF US.

WE HAVE SO MANY OTHERS.

DO YOU WANT TO SHARE.

Wendy: HERE IT IS.

FOR THREE AND A HALF YEARS,

TRISH, FROM IOWA, SUFFERED

FROM EXCESSIVE BLEEDING ON A

REGULAR BASIS.

THE LOSS OF IRON FROM HER

BODY LEFT HER TIRED ALL OF

THE TIME.

SHE DID NOT HAVE HEALTH

INSURANCE AND COULD NOT

AFFORD TO SEE A DOCTOR.

LAST JUNE, WHILE SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB," SHE

HEARD YOU GIVE A WORD, PAT,

"THERE IS SOMEBODY WITH

EXCESSIVE BLEEDING.

GOD IS STOPPING THAT

BLEEDING RIGHT NOW."

TRISH CLAIMED THE WORD FOR

HERSELF, AND EVER SINCE SHE

HAS NOT HAD ANOTHER EPISODE

OF EXCESSIVE BLEEDING AND

HAS BEEN COMPLETELY HEALED.

Pat: ISN'T THAT

WONDERFUL.

REMEMBER THAT WOMAN WHO SAID

SHE WASTED ALL OF HER

SUBSTANCE ON DOCTORS.

SHE SPENT EVERYTHING SHE

HAD.

SHE HAD THIS QUOTE, "ISSUE

OF BLOOD."

AND THEY COULDN'T STOP IT.

HERE IS ONE, BEVERLY, WHO

LIVES IN NIAGARA FALLS, NEW

YORK, WAS IN A BAD ACCIDENT

A YEAR AGO.

THAT RESULTED IN PRESSURE ON

THE SCIATIC SUPERVISE AND

OTHER NERVE DAMAGE.

DESPITE THREE STRONG

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS,

SHE STILL HAD PAIN IN HER

LEGS.

SHE HAD NO FEELING IN THE

UPPER SIDE OF HER BODY.

LAST JUNE SHE HEARD

WENDY --

Wendy: THAT'S ME.

Pat: THAT'S YOU.

GIVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

LORD, I BELIEVE YOU'RE

TOUCHING PEOPLE ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY RIGHT NOW WHO HAVE

BEEN SUFFERING WITH NERVE

PAINS IN THEIR LEGS FROM THE

SCIATIC NERVE.

WE THANK YOU FOR THE

HEALING.

INSTANTLY, THE PAIN IN

BEVERLY LEGS WERE HEALED.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: GOD IS GOOD.

WE'RE GOING TO JOIN HANDS

TOGETHER, AND IT IS SAID IF

TWO OR MORE AGREE, TOUCHING

HANDS, IT WILL BE DONE AS IT

IS HEAVEN.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

SISTER, AND WE BELIEVE GOD

RIGHT NOW, IN JESUS' NAME,

FOR THE ANOINTING OF YOUR

HOLY SPIRIT.

WE ASK FOR POWER.

WE ASK FOR LOVE.

WE ASK FOR THE FLOW OF YOUR

DEAR SPIRIT TO COME INTO

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

SOMEBODY'S KNEE IS LOCKED

UP.

YOU HAVE GOT A TRICK KNEE.

AND YOU START WALKING AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU STUMBLE

AND YOU CAN'T STAND UP.

GOD IS RESTORING THE

CARTILAGE IN YOUR KNEE.

YOU'RE HAVING A CREATIVE

MIRACLE RIGHT NOW AS WE

SPEAK.

SOMEBODY IS COUGHING UP

BLOOD.

THE LORD IS TOUCHING YOU

RIGHT NOW.

YOUR LUNGS ARE HEALED IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

Wendy: SOMEBODY WITH

MELANOMA RIGHT NOW, YOU'RE

VERY SCARED, BUT THE LORD IS

HEALING THAT.

RIGHT NOW HE IS CLEANSING

YOUR BLOOD, AND YOU ARE

HEALED, AND THE DOCTORS --

THERE WILL BE A GOOD

REPORT.

YOUR MELANOMA IS BEING

HEALED IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: THERE IS SOMEBODY

WHO HAS GOT SOMETHING ALL

OVER YOUR FACE.

IT IS SORT OF A WEIRD

DISEASE.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE A BURN,

BUT IT ISN'T.

IT COVERS YOUR FACE.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR FACE

RIGHT NOW, AND WIPE YOUR

HAND ACROSS YOUR FACE, AND

GOD HAS JUST HEALED YOU.

YOUR SKIN IS GOING TO BE

LIKE A BABY, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

LORD, FOR THOSE IN THIS

AUDIENCE WHO ARE SUFFERING

FINANCIALLY, WE PRAY THE

POWER OF GOD TO MEET THEIR

NEED.

REACH OUT TO THEM, LORD, AND

SHOW THEM YOUR WAY AND LET

THE TOUCH OF GOD BE IN THEIR

LIVES, IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: HAVE YOU GOT

ANYTHING ELSE?

Wendy: I DON'T KNOW IF

THIS IS A WORD, BUT I GOT A

REQUEST TO PRAY FOR SOMEBODY

WITH A BRAIN TUMOR THIS

MORNING.

IT SEEMS LIKE WE GET SO MANY

REPORTS OF PEOPLE WITH BRAIN

TUMORS THESE DAYS.

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO PRAY

AGAINST THAT AND PRAY FOR

THIS PERSON.

HIS NAME IS TOMMY.

LORD, WE JUST PRAY RIGHT NOW

THAT YOU WOULD COMPLETELY

HEAL TOMMY OF THIS BRAIN

TUMOR IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

LORD.

AND, LORD, WHATEVER IS

CAUSING IT, IF IT IS

SOMETHING IN OUR SOCIETY, IN

OUR AIR, IN THE FOOD WE'RE

EATING, LORD, WE JUST PRAY

THAT YOU WOULD TOUCH PEOPLE

AND HEAL THEM OF THESE

CANCERS IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: AND AMEN.

Wendy: WELL, UP NEXT,

WE'RE GOING TO "BRING IT

ON."

NANCY SAYS, "AFTER ADAM AND

EVE WERE CAST OUT OF THE

GARDEN OF EDEN, THEY HAD

CHILDREN.

THEIR CHILDREN MARRIED, BUT

WHO DID THEY MARRY?

IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE IF

EVERYBODY CAME FROM ADAM AND

EVE."

GREAT QUESTION.

PAT TACKLES THIS QUESTION

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

TIME TO "BRING IT ON."

WE'VE GOT SOME GOOD ONES

TODAY, PAT.

A VIEWER WRITES, "I RECENTLY

FOUND OUT MY HUSBAND HAS

BEEN CHEATING ON ME.

HE BASICALLY HAS BEEN LIVING

WITH THE OTHER WOMAN OFF AND

ON WHILE I WAS PREGNANT AND

THROUGH MY DELIVERY.

HE SAYS HE WANTS US TO MAKE

IT AND I SHOULD FORGIVE

HIM.

HE WANTS ME TO ALLOW HIM TO

STAY WITH THE WOMAN UNTIL HE

IS OKAY TO COME HOME SINCE

HE HAS UNFINISHED BUSINESS

WITH HER.

THIS IS KILLING ME SLOWLY.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: I DON'T THINK THAT

TAKES A LOT OF THOUGHT.

THE LORD SAID, YOU KNOW, IN

TERMS OF -- DIVORCE IS

PERMISSIBLE IN CASE OF

ADULTERY.

AND THERE IS NO CASE THIS IS

ADULTERY.

HE IS RUNNING OVER YOU LIKE

A LAWN MOWER.

HE IS TRYING TO KICK YOU

AROUND AND HE IS NOT CARING

ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS.

GET A LAWYER AND GET A

DIVORCE.

I HATE TO COUNSEL THIS

BECAUSE GOD HATES DIVORCE.

BUT IN THIS CASE YOU DON'T

WANT TO STAY AROUND THIS MAN

BECAUSE YOU SAID IT IS

KILLING YOU.

IT IS KILLING YOU SLOWLY.

GET RID OF HIM AND YOU HAVE

ALL OF THE GROUNDS IN THE

WORLD.

Wendy: NANCY WRITES IN,

"AFTER ADAM AND EVE WERE

CAST OUT OF THE GARDEN OF

EDEN, THEY HAD CHILDREN.

BUT WHO DID THEY MARRY?

IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE IF ALL

OF THE CHILDREN CAME FROM

ADAM AND EVE.

THIS CONFUSES ME."

Pat: THE LAWS ABOUT

INCEST CAME IN A LONG TIME

AFTER ADAM AND EVE.

INCEST ISN'T TOO GOOD A

THING AT ALL, I THINK

GENETICALLY YOU PASS ON

DEFECTIVE GENETIC MATERIAL.

SO YOUR CHILDREN ARE LIABLE

TO BE BORN WITH SERIOUS

MENTAL DEFECTS.

ADAM AND EVE WERE ABSOLUTELY

PERFECT.

AND THEIR CHILDREN COULD --

BROTHERS AND SISTERS COULD

HAVE MARRIED TOGETHER.

THEY HAD TO.

THERE IS NO OTHER WAY OF

HAVING PROCREATION.

IN EGYPT, THE ROYAL FAMILIES

ONLY MARRIED EACH OTHER.

OF COURSE, YOU'LL GET ALL

KINDS OF GENETIC PROBLEMS.

YOU'LL GET HEMOPHILIACS AND

OTHER THINGS LIKE THAT,

BLOOD DISEASES AND WHAT HAVE

YOU.

BUT IN EGYPT THEY THOUGHT

THEY WERE THE PURE LINE AND

THEY HAD TO KEEP IT THAT

WAY.

WELL, WHERE DID THEY COME

FROM?

THAT'S HOW IT STARTED, AND

LITTLE BY LITTLE BY LITTLE,

YOU GET FIRST COUSINS AND

SECOND COUSINS, AND THE NEXT

THING YOU KNOW THEY'RE NOT

KIN TO EACH OTHER AT ALL.

THERE IS NO OTHER

EXPLANATION.

I'M SORRY.

Wendy: BRENDA

WRITES, "PAT, WE HAVE SOME

TEENAGERS IN OUR CHURCH WHO

DO NOT BATHE.

HOW DO WE APPROACH THE

SUBJECT WITH SCRIPTURE

WITHOUT HURTING THEIR

FEELINGS?

HELP."

Pat: IF THE KID STINKS,

YOU DON'T WANT TO HURT THEIR

FEELINGS -- COME ON.

YOU TALK TO THEIR PARENTS

AND SAY, YOU'VE GOT A

TEENAGER WHO IS REALLY

SMELLY.

THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS.

THERE USED TO BE THE SAYING

"CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO

GODLINESS."

Wendy: HOW CAN THEY

STAND THEMSELVES?

Pat: THE OLIFACTORIES

ARE THE ONES THAT ADAPT.

I USED TO LIVE IN THE SMALL

HILLS, AND THEY CAME OUT OF

THE HILLS ON SATURDAY AND I

WENT TO THE COWBOY THEATERS,

AND YOU TALK ABOUT SMELLY --

I MEAN, IT WAS HORRIBLE.

BUT YOU GET USED TO IT.

I'M WATCHING THE MOVIE, AND

THE FACT THAT THE PEOPLE

AROUND ME DON'T SMELL WELL,

WELL, THAT'S JUST TOO BAD.

BUT YOU DO ADAPT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO

SAY, BUT YOU TALK TO THEIR

PARENTS.

THAT'S WHO YOU OUGHT TO

CONSULT WITH.

Wendy: DON'T BE AFRAID

TO CONFRONT THEM.

Pat: TELL HIS PARENTS.

Wendy: RACHEL

WRITES, "MY HUSBAND IS A

CHRISTIAN, AND HE SAYS SINCE

GOD HATES DIVORCE, WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS ABOUT HOW A

HUSBAND SHOULD LOVE AND

TREAT HIS WIFE DOESN'T

PERTAIN TO SECOND

MARRIAGES.

HE USES THIS AS AN EXCUSE TO

HOW HE TREATS ME.

ANY THOUGHTS?

I NEED SOMETHING MORE TO

TELL HIM."

Pat: I WOULD TELL HIM

YOU'RE GOING TO A LAWYER,

AND YOU'VE GOT RIGHTS TO HIS

PROPERTY, AND YOU WANT

HALF.

AND MAYBE THAT WILL WAKE HIM

UP.

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY HIS

WIFE.

THE FACT -- I DON'T KNOW HOW

COME YOU GOT MARRIED.

YOU DIDN'T TELL ME.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FIRST

MARRIAGE.

BUT ARE 100% WIFE.

AND FOR HIM TO USE SOME

COCKEYED VERSION OF THE

BIBLE TO MISTREAT YOU MAKES

ME VERY UPSET.

IT MAKES ME VERY UPSET TO

SEE HOW PEOPLE MISUSE THE

WORD OF GOD FOR THEIR OWN

SELFISH REASONS.

YOU SAY, HOW CAN I WAKE HIM

UP?

THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT -- YOU

SAY I HAVE CONTACTED A

LAWYER, AND I WANT HALF OF

EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT.

I AM A WIFE.

IF HE SAYS, I DON'T AGREE,

SAY, OKAY, WE'LL TAKE IT TO

THE JUDGE.

OTHERWISE, LET'S LIVE IN

HARMONY TOGETHER.

Wendy: LINDA

WRITES, "IS IT OKAY TO EAT

FOODS THAT ARE NAMED AFTER

THE DEVIL.

FOR INSTANCE, DEVILS FOOD

CAKE AND DEVILED EGGS.

WHAWOULD I BE DISHONORING

GOD IF I EAT THEM?"

Pat: I DON'T THINK SO.

THE THING WAS IF YOU EAT

MEAT THAT WAS AN OFFERING

AND YOU DIDN'T KNOW IT, YOU

PRAY AND HE'LL CLEAN IT UP.

THIS OTHER THING IS A JOKE.

THE DEVILED EGGS, THEY ARE

DELICIOUS.

Wendy: I USED TO GO

HIKING AND CAMPING IN A

PLACE CALLED DEVIL'S LAKE.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

BEAUTIFUL PLACES I HAVE EVER

BEEN.

I DIDN'T LIKE THAT NAME, BUT

I STILL WENT.

Pat: IF YOU DON'T

BELIEVE IN THAT STUFF AND

YOU DON'T AGREE WITH IT, AND

THE FACT THAT SOMEBODY HAS

GIVEN IT A NAME -- THEY

COULD -- THEY HAVE THINGS

THEY CALL SLOPPY JOE'S.

DOES IT MEAN JOE SLOPPED

THEM?

I DON'T THINK SO.

ONE MORE?

Wendy: I THINK THAT'S

IT.

WELL, COMING UP, YOU'RE

ABOUT TO SEE A REMARKABLE

STORY OF TWO MIRACLES.

MIRACLES LIKE THOSE RECORDED

IN THE BIBLE.

BOTH WERE EXPERIENCED BY THE

SAME MAN, AND HIS NAME IS

SINUCCI.

Reporter: THOUSANDS OF

VILLAGES LIKE THIS DOT THE

LANDSCAPE OF WEST AFRICA.

BUT WHAT YOU MIGHT NOT

REALIZE IS THAT EVERY

VILLAGE HAS A DARK SIDE,

FILLED WITH WITCHCRAFT,

IDOLS, AND VOO-DOO.

THIS IS THE WORLD WHERE

SINUCCI LIVES.

HE HAD BEEN DEDICATED TO

SERVE AS A VOO-DOO PRIEST.

THE CUTS ON HIS CHEEK ARE A

REMINDER OF HIS DARK PAST.

FOR YEARS HE PRACTICED THE

DARKNESS.

HE WASN'T SURPRISED WHEN A

DOZEN YEARS AGO, HE STARTED

TO GO BLIND HIMSELF.

I COULDN'T SEE ANYTHING

CLEARLY.

MOST TIMES THINGS WERE

BLURRY, BUT SOMETIMES I WAS

IN COMPLETE DARKNESS.

Reporter: DOCTORS,

VOO-DOO PRIESTS, EVEN

GLASSES COULD NOT FIX HIS

VISION.

ONE DAY HE WENT TO VISIT HIS

SISTER IN ANOTHER VILLAGE.

SHE INVITED HIM TO WATCH

"THE 700 CLUB," A PROGRAM

THAT AIRS THERE, A PROGRAM

THAT HAD CHANGED HIS

SISTER'S LIFE.

THAT NIGHT SINUCCI HAD A

VIVID DREAM.

IN MY DREAM, I SAW A MAN

BEING NAILED TO A CROSS.

AS I STOOD THERE, I HEARD

HIM SAY, YOUR SINS ARE

FORGIVEN.

Reporter: REMARKABLY,

SINUCCI NEVER HEARD ABOUT

JESUS DEATH OR CRUCIFIXION.

THE NEXT DAY HE AND HIS WIFE

PRAYED TO BECOME

CHRISTIANS.

JESUS SET ME FREE FROM A

LIFETIME OF BONDAGE, AND HE

CHANGED ME.

Reporter: ONE WEEK

LATER, STILL PARTIALLY

BLIND, SINUCCI WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

THIS TIME HE PRAYED WITH PAT

ROBERTSON FOR GOD TO HEAL

THIS EYES.

AS I PRAYED WITH THE

WHITE MAN, LIQUID STUFF CAME

OUT OF MY EYES.

SUDDENLY I COULD SEE

PERFECTLY.

MY VISION WAS RESTORED.

Reporter: TODAY SINUCCI

IS ABLE TO WORK ON THE FARM

AGAIN, AND ENJOYS SPENDING

TIME WITH HIS WIFE AND

CHILDREN.

HIS EYESIGHT IS PERFECT.

I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR "THE

700 CLUB" PROGRAMME.

GOD USED IT TO TOUCH ME THAT

DAY, AND HE IS USING IT TO

TOUCH OTHERS, TOO.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: ISN'T THAT

AMAZING.

SINUCCI WAS NOT A BELIEVER,

BUT HE WATCHED "THE 700

CLUB" FOR THE FIRST TIME,

PRAYED WITH THE WHITE MAN,

AND RECEIVED JESUS AND WAS

HEALED.

THAT WAS YOU, PAT, I THINK.

YOU'RE THE WHITE MAN.

Pat: THESE THINGS ARE

ON TAPE.

THAT'S WHAT IS SO

WONDERFUL.

WHAT GOES ON OVER IN

AFRICA -- SOMETIMES WE DO IT

LIVE ON SATELLITE, BUT A LOT

OF TIMES IT IS ON TAPE.

AND THE LORD WILL JUST DO

MIRACLES AND DEVILS FLEE

BECAUSE GOD'S POWER IS VERY

EXCITING.

Wendy: AND IF YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB," 65 CENTS A

DAY, $20 A MONTH, WE WILL

GIVE YOU "POWER FOR LIFE."

GRADUATEING FROM COLLEGE.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM THE BOOK OF

JAMES, WHO SAYS, "DRAW NEAR

TO GOD, AND HE WILL DRAW

NEAR TO YOU."

HE WILL BE FOUND BY THOSE

OF YOU WITH US.
