IT'S THE RED SOX VERSES

THE RED BIRDS IN THE FALL

CLASSIC.

WE'RE AT FENWAY PARK TO FIND

OUT HOW THE PLAYERS ARE

GETTING READY FOR THE BIG

GAME.

PLUS A ROUTINE ULTRASOUND

GOES WRONG.

IT WAS HORRIBLE.

IT WAS HORRIBLE NEWS.

WE WERE DEVASTATED.

Gordon: DOCTORS ADVISED

AN ABORTION.

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW HARD

IT REALLY IS GOING TO BE.

Gordon: HEAR WHY THIS

COUPLE HELD ON TO HOPE.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE

WITH ME.

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

EVIDENCE IS MOUNTING THAT

THE PROBLEMS OF THE

OBAMACARE GO BEYOND JUST THE

DIFFICULTIES WITH THE

WEBSITE.

MANY AMERICANS ARE LOSING

THEIR INSURANCE, AND OTHERS

ARE FINDING THAT THE COST OF

INSURANCE IS MUCH HIGHER.

Terry: CONGRESS IS

TRYING TO FIND OUT JUST WHAT

DID GO WRONG WITH THE

ROLLOUT OF OBAMACARE

ONLINE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: DEMOCRATS AND

REPUBLICANS ON THE HOUSE

ENERGY COMMITTEE AGREE: THE

ROLLOUT OF HEALTH CARE.GOV

IS PLAUD.

FLAWED.

HOW CAN THE

ADMINISTRATION FORCE

AMERICANS TO BUY FROM A

SYSTEM THAT DOES NOT WORK

AND WHO'S ROLLOUT HAS BEEN

NOTHING SHORT OF A

DISASTER.

Reporter: THE

REPUBLICANS ON THE

ADMINISTRATION ACCUSE

CONGRESS OF CONFUSING THEM.

WE WERE TOLD THAT

EVERYTHING WAS WORKING

PROPERLY AND IT COULD ALL BE

DONE ON TIME.

Reporter: CONTRACTORS

OF THE SOFTWARE INSIST THEY

DID THEIR PART, BUT THE

ADMINISTRATION DID NOT ALLOW

ENOUGH TIME FOR DEVELOPING

AND TESTING THE SITE.

KATHLEEN SEBELIUS SAYS SHE

IS CALLING UP THE RESERVES,

HOPING FOR A QUICK FIX TO AN

AILING SYSTEM.

WE'VE LOOKED ACROSS THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AT SOME

OF THE BEST TECH EXPERTS,

WHO WEREN'T NECESSARILY ON

THE GROUND WORKING ON THIS

PROJECT, BUT ARE NOW

INVOLVED.

Reporter: SOME

DEMOCRATS NOW SAY THE

ADMINISTRATION SHOULD EXTEND

THE DEADLINE FOR SIGNING UP,

AND REVISE THE PENALTIES FOR

THOSE WHO DON'T ENROLL.

ANOTHER WORRY, IT'S NOW

CLEAR, MANY AMERICANS ARE

FINDING THEIR HEALTH

INSURANCE PREMIUMS HAVE SHOT

UP.

AND KAISER HEALTH NEWS

REPORTS HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS HAVE RECEIVED

CANCELLATION NOTICES,

DESPITE THE PRESIDENT'S

ORIGINAL PROMISE PEOPLE

COULD KEEP THEIR PLANS.

DEMOCRATS WHO THOUGHT THEY

WOULD RUN FOR RE-ELECTION

NEXT YEAR NOW OR STARTING TO

WORRY ABOUT THE POLITICAL

FALLOUT.

AS REPUBLICANS POINT OUT,

THE WEBSITE FAILURES COULD

SIMPLY BE A SIGN OF MORE

PROBLEMS TO COME.

I'M ALSO CONCERNED ABOUT

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.

WILL ENROLLMENT GLITCHES

BECOME PROVIDER PAYMENT

GLITCHES?

WILL PATIENTS SHOW UP AT

THEIR DOCTOR'S OFFICE OR

HOSPITAL TO BE TOLD MAYBE

THEY ARE NOT COVERED OR EVEN

IN THE SYSTEM?

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS FACING YET

ANOTHER POLITICAL HEADACHE.

THIS TIME OVER THE NATIONAL

SECURITY AGENCY'S

INTERNATIONAL SURVEILLANCE

PROGRAMS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: GORDON,

EUROPEAN LEADERS ARE

PROMISING TO KEEP UP A

STRONG RELATIONSHIP WITH THE

UNITED STATES, THIS DESPITE

THEIR ANGER AT THE LATEST

ALLEGATIONS OF WIDESPREAD

U.S. SPYING ON ITS ALLIES.

THE LEADERS ARE MEETING IN

BRUSSELS, AND THEY WANT NEW

RULES ON SURVEILLANCE BY THE

END OF THE YEAR.

ANGELA MERKEL IS THE ALLEGED

TAXING ITARGET IN LATEST.

MERKEL SAID THIS SHATTERED

HER TRUST IN THE U.S., AND

UNDERMINED THE TRANS

ATLANTIC RELATIONSHIP.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SPOKE WITH

CHANCELLOR MERKEL BY PHONE

TO ENSURE HER THE U.S. IS

NOT LISTENING TO HER CALLS

NOW.

ONCE YOU HAVE THIS

CAPABILITY, YOU START TO USE

IT WITHOUT THINKING OF WHAT

YOU'RE DOING.

HERE IS A CASE WHERE THE

N.S.A. HAS GOTTEN COMPLETELY

OUT OF CONTROL.

I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT THAT

THE PRESIDENT REIN THIS IN

AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE SOON MAY BE FACING

ANOTHER ANGIE HEADS OF STATE

AS WELL.

THE GUARDIAN SAID IT

OBTAINED A MEMO SAYING THAT

THE N.S.A. WAS ABLE TO

MONITOR 35 WORLD LEADERS'

COMMUNICATION IN 2006.

THE U.S. AIR FORCE MAY DROP

AN OATH THAT THE CADETS

TAKE.

THE MILITARY RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM FOUNDATION SAYS THE

PHRASE "SO HELP ME GOD," AS

THE END OF THE QUOTE, IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

THE COLORADO SPRINGS GAS

GAZETTE SAYS THEY MAY MAKE

IT OPTIONAL.

BUT JAY SECULO FROM THE

AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW OF

JUSTICE SAYS THE PHRASE DOES

NOT VIOLATE THE

CONSTITUTION.

THE CHIEF OPPONENT OF A

PROGRAM, A 16-YEAR-OLD

STUDENT.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THIS

UPDATE ON HER STORY AND WHAT

IT MEANS FOR SCHOOLS AROUND

THE COUNTRY.

IT'S KIND OF LIKE A

DREAM.

YOU HOPED IT WOULD HAPPEN,

BUT YOU NEVER THOUGHT IT

WOULD.

AND WHEN IT DID, IT WAS LIKE

AWESOME.

Reporter: ANDREA

HERNANDEZ TOOK ON THE NORTH

SIDE SCHOOL DISTRICT, THE

LARGEST IN SOUTH TEXAS WITH

MORE THAN 100,000 STUDENTS

AND SHE WON.

AT ISSUE, THIS TRACKING

DEVICE, ALSO KNOWN AS A

SCHOOL I.D. BADGE.

THE TINY BATTERIES EMIT

RADIOWAVES THAT ALLOW A

SCHOOL TO LOCATE A STUDENT'S

EXACT LOCATION AT ANY POINT

IN THE DAY.

IT IS NOT JUST KNOWING

THE SCHEDULE OF A STUDENT,

WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT HOLD

TRUE FOR THAT DAY, BUT IT IS

PHYSICALLY KNOWING WERE

WHERE THAT CHILDREN IS.

Reporter: FOR

HERNANDEZ, IT VIOLATES HER

FAITH.

YOU COULDN'T BE IN THE

SCHOOL WITHOUT HAVING THE

CHIP, AND, YOU KNOW, YOU

COULDN'T BUY LUNCH OR VOTE

FOR HOMECOMING.

YOU COULDN'T DO THE NORMAL

THINGS.

JUST LIKE IN THE BIBLE, YOU

CAN'T BUY, SELL, OR TRADE

UNLESS YOU HAVE THE MARK.

Reporter: HERNANDEZ

PAID A HIGH PRICE FOR HER

PROTEST.

WHEN IT BECAME CLEAR SHE

WOULD NOT WEAR THE I.F.D.

BADGE, HER MAGNET HIGH

SCHOOL EXPELLED HER.

THEY SAID THEY WOULD BE

DROPPING ME FROM THE ROSTERS

THE FOLLOWING DAY.

Reporter: WHAT COST

NORTHSIDE TO SWITCH GEARS

AND DROP THE QUARTER MILLION

DOLLAR PROGRAM.

THE SPOKESMAN SAYS IT CAME

DOWN TO MONEY.

THEY HOPED THE BADGES WOULD

HELP THEM TRACK STUDENTS AND

BRING IN MORE FUNDS.

IN THE END, IT WAS BUMPED UP

BY LESS THAN 1%.

WHAT HAPPENED IN SAN ANTONIO

MAY SLOW DOWN THE MOVEMENT

TO PUT R.F.I.D. TECHNOLOGY

IN SCHOOLS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

THAT IS GOOD NEWS FOR

PRIVACY ADVOCATES AND FOR

HERNANDEZ, WHO IS BACK IN

READY TO ENJOY SCHOOL.

R.F.I.D. BEING GONE IS A

HUGE WEIGHT LIFTED OFF MY

SHOULDERS.

IT IS GOOD TO GO BACK AND

JUST BE A STUDENT.

AND IT'S GOOD TO NOT HAVE TO

WORRY ABOUT CHECKING AND ALL

OF THIS RADIATION FLOATING

AROUND THE SCHOOL.

Reporter: REPORTING IN

SAN ANTONIO, HEATHER CELLS,

CBN NEWS.

IRAN COULD BE JUST A

MONTH OR SO AWAY FROM

BUILDING A NUCLEAR BOMB.

A NEW REPORT FROM THE U.S.

INSTITUTE FOR SCIENCE AND

INTERNATIONAL SECURITY SAYS

IRAN COULD MAKE ENOUGH

WEAPONS GRADE URANIUM TO

MAKE A BOMB BY THEN.

THE REPORT SAYS THE NEW

FINDINGS HAVE IMPLICATIONS

FOR ANY NEGOTIATIONS WITH

IRAN OR ITS NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

IRAN IS CURRENTLY INVOLVED

IN INTERNATIONAL TALKS.

THE U.S. AND OTHER

COUNTRIES, LIKE ISRAEL,

BELIEVE IT WANTS TO BUILD A

NUCLEAR WEAPON.

A CHARGE THAT IRAN DENIES.

A COURT IN IRAN HAS

SENTENCED FOUR CHRISTIANS TO

80 LASHES EACH FOR DRINKING

WINE DURING A COMMUNITY

SERVICE.

THEY REPORT THAT THE VERDICT

WAS HANDED DOWN IN THE CITY

OF RASH ON MONDAY, AND THE

CHRISTIANS HAVE 10 DAYS TO

APPEAL.

IRAN HAS PUT NUMEROUS

CHRISTIANS IN PRISON,

INCLUDING PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

THAT BY GOING TO OUR WEBSITE

AT CBNNEWS.COM.

EVANGELIST BILLY GRAHAM IS

NOW HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL.

HE WAS ADMITTED EARLIER THIS

WEEK FOR PULMONARY TESTS AND

WAS RELEASED THURSDAY

NIGHT.

A SPOKESMAN SAYS HE WAS

ALERT THE WHOLE TIME AND DID

NOT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH

THE SCHEDULED TESTS.

FRANKLIN GRAHAM SAYS HIS

FATHER HAS ROUND-THE-CLOCK

CARE AND STILL SPEAKS AND

THINKS VERY CLEARLY.

SEVERAL IN HIS COMMUNITY OF

NORTH CAROLINA HAVE SHOWN

THEIR LOVE AND SUPPORT BY

PRAYING FOR GRAHAM.

WITH THE PRAYERS, HE'LL

STAY HEALTHY.

AND WITH HIS LAST MESSAGE HE

IS GOING TO PUT OUT IN

NOVEMBER, WE'RE LOOKING

FORWARD TO THAT.

Terry: COMING UP, AN

ARMY VET REMEMBERS THE DAY

AN I.E.D. BLEW OFF HIS LEG.

I DIDN'T WANT IT TO LAND

ON MY HEAD, AND REALIZING

THAT MY FOOT WAS GONE.

AND KNOWING THAT WHEN I HIT

THE GROUND, THEY NEEDED TO

GET TO WORK TO STOP THE

BLEEDING.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

WOUNDED WARRIOR, HIS WIFE,

AND OTHERS ARE RECEIVING

HELP AND HEALING IN ALASKA.

Gordon: MONDAY, HEAL

YOUR HEART AND HEAL YOUR

MIND.

FIRST, DR. CHAUNCEY CRANDEL

REVEALS HOW YOU CAN REVERSE

THE EFFECTS OF THE NATION'S

NUMBER ONE KILLER.

AND THEN...

I KNEW I WAS IN TROUBLE.

Gordon: A REVOLUTIONARY

NEW TYPE OF BRAIN SURGERY.

HEAR WHY SOME NEUROSURGEONS

AREN'T CUTTING OUT TUMORS.

THEY'RE BURNING THEM OUT.

IT BASICALLY GOT MY

PRIORITIES STRAIGHT.

Gordon: MONDAY ON "THE

700 CLUB."

Gordon: WELL, AMERICAN

TROOPS HAVE BEEN FIGHTING IN

THE MIDDLE EAST FOR MORE

THAN A DECADE.

AND THE CASUALTIES FROM

THESE WARS INCLUDE BOTH OUR

SERVICE MEMBERS AND THEIR

FAMS.

AS MARK MARTIN SHOWS US, A

NEW PROGRAM BRINGS WOUNDED

WARRIORS FROM ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY TO ALASKA FOR PEACE

AND HEALING.

Reporter: OUR JOURNEY

BEGINS IN A PLANE, THE MAIN

SOURCE OF TRANSPORTATION TO

PORT ALSOWORTH, A REMOTE

ALASKA VILLAGE LOCATED ABOUT

150 MILES SOUTHWEST OF

ANCHORIDGE.

WOUNDED WARRIORS AND THEIR

SPOUSES FOLLOW THIS BREEK

BREATHTAKING PATH IN THEIR

SEARCH FOR HEALING OF THEIR

BODIES, MINDS, AND

MARRIAGES.

LANDING ON THIS DIRT RUN WAY

BEGINS A WEEK UNLIKE ANY

OTHER.

AS THEY EXIT, THEY RECEIVE A

HERO'S WELCOME FROM PORT

ALSWORTH RESIDENCE, AND THE

STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS OF

SAMARITAN LODGE, ALASKA.

THEY COME OFF THE PLANE

CRYING BECAUSE THEY DID NOT

GET THAT KIND OF WELCOME

WHEN THEY CAME HOME

WOUNDED.

BECAUSE THEY CAME HOME BY

THEMSELVES.

THERE WAS NO BIG PARADE OR

ANYTHING.

MOST OF THEM WILL SAY, I

CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DID THAT

FOR ME.

THEY JUST FEEL SO LOVED.

Reporter: THE COZY

RETREAT CENTER A AN OASIS

FOR VETERANS AND SPOUSES

PARCHED BY WAR.

THE HUMANITARIAN

ORGANIZATION SAMARITAN'S

PURSE RUNS THE PROGRAM,

KNOWN AS "OPERATION HEAL OUR

PATRIOTS."

WE WANT THESE COUPLES TO

EXPERIENCE HEALING, GOD'S

HEALING IN THEIR LIVES.

I'M NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT

THE PHYSICAL HEALING, THAT'S

IMPORTANT, BUT I'M TALKING

ABOUT THE PHYSICAL AND

EMOTIONAL HEALING, AND THE

HEALING OF THEIR MARRIAGES.

SO MANY OF THESE COUPLES,

BECAUSE OF THE EXPERIENCES

THEY'VE GONE THROUGH ARE

FINDING THEMSELVES GOING IN

DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS.

Reporter: ACCORDING TO

THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT,

DIVORCE ENDED ABOUT 30,000

MILITARY MARRIAGES IN 2011.

PART OF THE HEALING PROCESS

HERE MEANS SIMPLY GETTING

THEIR MINDS OFF WOUNDS AND

DAY TO DAY STRESS BY

EXPERIENCING LIFE ALASKA

STYLE.

THAT INCLUDES BEARS,

FLY-FISHING, KAYAKING, AND

OF COURSE, R & R.

IT IS FUN TO SEE THE

EXCITEMENT ON THEIR FACE

WHEN THEY WALK IN THE

CABIN.

Reporter: SANDY LANE

AND HER HUSBAND, MARK,

MANAGE THE MARRIAGE RETREAT

CENTER.

IT IS A BLESSING TO BE

HERE.

FIRST OF ALL, TO BE PART OF

AN ORGANIZATION, A MISSION,

THAT TENDS TO THESE COUPLES,

THESE WOUNDED COUPLES.

AND NOT ONLY IS THE SPOUSE

WOUNDED, BUT THE PERSON THAT

SERVED IN THESE ARMED

FORCES, BUT THE OTHER SPOUSE

IS ALSO WOUNDED IN SO MANY

WAYS.

Reporter: OVER A THREE

AND A HALF MONTH PERIOD, 150

COUPLES FROM ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY ARRIVE HERE AT

SAMARITAN LODGE, ALASKA.

SOME OF THE WOUNDED WARRIORS

HAVE INJURIES WHICH ARE

VISIBLE.

OTHERS HAVE WOUNDS CAN ARE

NOT SEEN.

THIS IS THE LATEST AND

GREATEST MILITARY-ISSUED X3,

MADE BY AUTO BACH OUT OF

GERMANY.

Reporter: WHILE SERVING

IN AFGHANISTAN, AN I.E.D.

TOOK OFF BILLY'S RIGHT LEG

AT THE KNEE.

I REMEMBER THE WHOLE

THING.

I REMEMBER FLYING THROUGH

THE AIR, WORRYING ABOUT HOW

I WAS GOING TO LAND.

I DIDN'T WANT TO LAND ON MY

HEAD, AND REAL LYING

REALIZING THAT MY FOOT WAS

GONE, AND KNOWING WHEN I HIT

THE GROUND, I NEEDED TO GET

TO WORK TO STOP THE

BLEEDING.

Reporter: JENNIFER,

WHEN YOU LOOK DOWN THERE AT

THE PROSTHETIC LEG, WHAT

GOES THROUGH YOUR MIND?

HE IS A PRETTY AMAZING

GUY TO COME THROUGH ALL THAT

HE HAS COME THROUGH.

IT SEEMS NATURAL NOW.

IT IS JUST PART OF HIM.

Reporter: STILL,

INJURIES LIKE THIS, AND

THEIR NEW CHALLENGES, TAKE A

TOLL ON A MARRIAGE.

AFTER THEIR TIME AT

SAMARITAN LODGE, ALASKA,

HOWEVER, BILLY AND JENNIFER

RENEWED THEIR VOWS, ONE OF

THREE COUPLES TO DO SO

DURING OUR TIME HERE.

IT WAS PERFECT FOR US.

WE REALLY NEEDED THE TIME

FOR US TO RECONNECT, EWAY

FROM EVERYTHING, ESPECIALLY

JUST UNPLUGGING FROM THE

REST OF THE WORLD.

JUST BEING ABLE TO FOCUS ON

WHAT WE'RE DOING, AND WHAT'S

RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF US.

AND THAT HAS BEEN EXTREMELY

HELPFUL FOR US.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO

RECHARGE EVERY ONCE IN A

WHILE AND TAKE TIME FOR EACH

OTHER.

Reporter: HERNANDEZ AND

MARTI ALSO FEEL RECHARGED.

HERNANDEZ SUFFERED A BRAIN

INJURY IN IRAQ AND BATTLES

POST-TRAMATIC STRESS

DISORDER.

THE MARRIAGE ENRICHMENT

CLASSES WERE RIGHT ON POINT,

HITTING THE BIGGER ELEMENTS

OF LOVE AND SUPPORT.

I WOULD SAY THAT ALL

SERVICE MEMBERS NEED TO SEEK

GOD.

FIRST AND FOREMOST.

AND ADDRESS THE ISSUES THAT

ARE GOING ON.

Reporter: 15 DAYS AFTER

DAN STEVENS RETIRED AS A

NAVY CHAPLAIN, HE TOOK ON

THE SAME ROLE AT SAMARITAN

LODGE, ALASKA.

HE HAS WITNESSED DOZENS OF

LIVES CHANGED, THINKS TO

SALVATION THROUGH JESUS

CHRIST.

MY MISSION HERE IS TO

HELP PEOPLE COME TO KNOW THE

LORD JESUS CHRIST.

THAT HAS BEEN MY MISSION IN

THE MILITARY.

IT IS TO HELP PEOPLE WHERE

THEY ARE.

I NOW BAPTIZE YOU IN THE

NAME OF THE FATHER, THE SON,

AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

[APPLAUSE]

[CHEERING]

Reporter: AND SO BROKEN

MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE GIVEN

SO MUCH ARRIVE IN ALASKA NOT

KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT, AND

LEAVE HERE TRANSFORMED BY

THE HEALING POWER OF GOD.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS, PORT

ALSWORTH, ALASKA.

Gordon: WHAT A

WONDERFUL MINISTRY.

INVESTIGATIONS TO FRANKLIN

GRAHAM AND SAMARITAN'S PURSE

FOR DOING THIS MARVELOUS

WORK.

AND WE ALL NEED TO REALIZE

THAT SPOUSES OF MEMBERS OF

THE MILITARY ARE ALSO

SERVING, AND SERVING IN WAYS

WE OFTEN DON'T RECOGNIZE

BECAUSE THEY'RE FORCED INTO

BEING SINGLE PARENTS.

AND WITH THE LONG

DEPLOYMENTS THAT ARE NOW

STANDARD IN THE MILITARY,

THE CHURCH NEEDS TO RISE UP

TO HELP THEM.

SO IF YOU ARE IN OR NEAR A

MILITARY BASE, WOULD YOU

ENCOURAGE YOUR PASTOR, WHAT

CAN WE DO TO REACHITO TO

REACH OUT TO THE MILITARY

FAMILIES IN OUR AREA TO HELP

THEM MAKE IT THROUGH?

SO OFTEN THEY THINK THAT

THEY'RE ABANDONED.

AND WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE

THEY'RE SERVING, TOO.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING UP,

WE GO BEHIND THE SCENES OF

THE BATTLE BETWEEN THE BIRDS

AND THE BEARDS.

PLAYERS FROM THE

CARDINALS

AND THE RED SOX TALK ABOUT

LIFE BEYOND THE WORLD SERIES

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Gordon: THE RED BIRDS

AND THE RED SOX ARE NOW

TIED, WITH FIVE MORE GAMES

TO GO IN THE WORLD SERIES.

SPORTS REPORTER SEAN BROWN

FILED THIS REPORT ON THE

FALL

CLASSIC FROM FENWAY

PARK.

Reporter: LAST NIGHT,

AFTER A THRILLING BOSTON

VICTORY OF GAME ONE OF THE

WORLD SERIES, THE ST. LOUIS

CARDINALS FIRED RIGHT BACK,

STARTING AT THE TOP OF THEPd@D

SIXTH WITH THIS TRIPLE BY

MATT HALLADAY, WHICH LED TO

A SCORE AFTER THIS CHOPPER.

THEN THE BOTTOM OF THE

SIXTH, HERE COMES BIG PAPA,

DAVID ORTIZ, WHICH ALSO

BRINGS IN DUSTIN PEDROIA.

AND THE SOX ARE UP 2-1.

FOLLOW THE SEVENTH, AFTER

PETE AND JOHN SCORE, CARLOS

BELTRAN SCORES, AND THE

CARDS WIN IT 4-2, AND IT IS

OFF TO ST. LOUIS FOR GAME

THREE WITH THE SERIES TIED

ONE GAME APIECE.

HELLO, AND WELCOME TO

FENWAY PARK HERE IN BOSTON

FOR CBS COVERAGE OF THE 2013

WORLD SERIES, WHERE THE

BOSTON RED SOX AND THE

CARDINALS BATTLE IT OUT.

WINNING FOR THE CARDS, IT

WOULD BE THEIR 12th, FOR

THE SOX, THEIR 8th.

THE PLAYERS COME TO THIS

EVENT WITH ONE GOAL IN MIND:

TWO TAKE A CHAMPIONSHIP HOME

TO THEIR CITIES.

I TALKED TO THE PLAYERS AND

FOUND THERE IS ANOTHER GOAL

BIGGER THAN WINNING THE

CHAMPIONSHIP.

IT TOOK CARLOS 15 YEARS AND

FIVE TEAMS TO GET TO THE

WORLD SERIES.

FOR A

MOMENT IT LOOKED

LIKE

IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN OVER FOR

HIM IN GAME ONE AFTER

INJURING THIS RIBS AFTER

THIS AMAZING PLAY.

HE SAYS THROUGH GOD'S GRACE,

HE WAS ABLE TO COME BACK

STRONGER IN GAME TWO.

AND HE GIVES ALL OF THE

PRAISE TO THE LORD.

SOMETIMES, YOU KNOW, AS

HUMAN BEINGS WE WANT TO FIX

OUR OWN PROBLEMS WITH OUR

OWN POWER.

IT DOESN'T WORK LIKE THAT.

WHEN YOU HAVE JESUS ON YOUR

SIDE, EVERYTHING WORKS

BETTER.

THE GLORY IS TO GOD FOR

GIVING ME THE OPPORTUNITY,

FIRST OF ALL, TO PLAY THIS

GAME, AND TO BE SUCCESSFUL

IN

WHAT I DO.

NONE OF THIS COULD HAVE BEEN

POSSIBLE WITHOUT HIM.

Reporter: THIS IS MATT

HALLADAY'S THIRD TRIP TO THE

WORLD SERIES, SO HE IS USED

TO ALL OF THE ATTENTION AND

ADDED PRESSURE.

HE SAYS IT IS HIS FAITH IN

THE LORD THAT HELPS HIM

REMEMBER WHAT MATTERS MOST.

I THINK JUST REMEMBERING,

YOU KNOW, THE REAL REASON

I'M HERE AND THE PRIORITIES

AND THINGS LIKE THAT, AND

THAT JESUS HAS PUT ME HERE.

GO OUT AND HONOR HIM AND

PLAY THE GAME HE WOULD WANT

ME TO AND TRUST THE RESULTS

ARE IN HIS HANDS.

Reporter: MALATTA

MORENA SAYS HE GIVES ALL OF

THE HONOR AND GLORY TO GOD.

WE WOULDN'T BE HERE

WITHOUT HIM.

HE IS THE ONLY REASON WE'REx

HERE.

HOPEFULLY HE GIVES US HELP

TO BE PART OF THIS.

SO IT HAS BEEN A HUGE PART

FOR US.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE JESUS

CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE, I DON'T

KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE HIM.

Reporter: PITCHER ADAM

WAINWRIGHT HAS HAD A

PHENOMENAL POST-SEASON.

LIKE YADARAR AND MATT, HE

RECOGNIZES HOW AND WHY HE

HAS BEEN SO SUCCESSFUL.

TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN,

MUCH IS REQUIRED.

I DON'T TAKE THAT LIGHTLY.

I KNOW I'VE BEEN GIVEN A

TREMENDOUS PLATFORM HERE IN

ST. LOUIS TO BE ON STAGES

LIKE THIS, TALKING, AND WHEN

QUESTIONS LIKE THIS COME,

ABOUT JESUS, IT MAKES ME

SMILE.

MY SOURCE OF STRENGTH, MY

REASON FOR COMPETING THE WAY

I DO.

SO, YOU KNOW, IT'S SOMETHING

I DON'T MIND TALKING ABOUT

IN A SECULAR ATMOSPHERE,

WHERE PEOPLE MAY BELIEVE OR

MAY NOT BELIEVE.

IT IS SOMETHING I HOLD

DEARLY AND I CLING TO.

Reporter: LIKE THE

PLAYERS IN THE OTHER DUGOUT,

RED SOX CATCHER JARED SAYS

JESUS IS THE SOURCE OF HIS

STRENGTH AS WELL.

ESPECIALLY DURING TIMES OF

TRAGEDY.

IN APRIL OF THIS YEAR, THE

CITY OF BOSTON WAS

DEVASTATED AFTER TWO BOMBS

WENT OFF DURING THE BOSTON

MARATHON.

AND IN THE MONTHS THAT

FOLLOWED, THE COURAGEOUS

PEOPLE OF THE CITY GAVE

BIRTH TO A BATTLE CRY THAT

IS "BOSTON STRONG."

IT DEFINES EVERYTHING

ABOUT THIS CITY AND

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS TEAM.

THIS CITY HAS FOUND A WAY TO

RALLY AROUND AND NOT JUST

COWER BEHIND ONE ANOTHER OR

JUST STAY INSIDE.

THEY KIND OF WENT OUT AND

MADE IT A PURPOSE, THAT,

HEY, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT

HAPPENED TO US.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO LOOK AT

IT AS A WEAKNESS.

WE'RE GOING TO SHOW PEOPLE@ñ

HOW STRONG WE ARE.

OUR FAITH IN CHRIST IS

OBVIOUSLY THE MOST IMPORTANT

THING.

HE LAID HIS LIFE DOWN ON THE

CROSS FOR US, AND WE JUST

LIVE OUR LIFE FOR HIM.

HE HAS WORKED A LOT,

ESPECIALLY IN THIS CITY,

WITH EVERYTHING THAT HAS

HAPPENED.

JUST WHAT THIS CITY HAS BEEN

THROUGH AND WHAT WE'VE HAD

TO OVERCOME, YOU JUST FEEL

THE MOVEMENT.

YOU FEEL A LOT OF PEOPLE

JUST COMING TOGETHER.

ULTIMATELY, I THINK THAT'S

WHAT HE WANTS.

SO NO MATTER HOW IT HAPPENS,

IT IS HAPPENING AND IT'S HIS

PLAN.

Reporter: RED SOX

PITCHER JAKE PEAVY AGREES

WITH JARED, AND ADDS WHILE

WINNING THE CHAMPIONSHIP

WOULD BE A GREAT GIFT FOR

THE CITY, THE GREATEST GIFT

COMES FROM HAVING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

YOU REALLY REALIZE THAT

THE LORD HAS A PLAN FOR ALL

OF OUR LIVES.

AND THERE IS NOTHING BETTER

THAN KNOWING THAT YOU'RE A

CHRISTIAN, THAT YOU'RE

SAVED, AND KNOWING THAT

THERE WAS SOMEBODY WHO CARED

SO MUCH ABOUT US THAT HE

SENT HIS SON TO GIVE US

ETERNAL LIFE.

THAT'S THE COOLEST GIFT THAT

ANYBODY CAN EVER GIVE.

BECAUSE, OBVIOUSLY, WE'RE

ALL CAUGHT UP IN YOURSELVES

AND CENTRAL IN NATURE.

SO TO HAVE THAT GIFT FOR ME,

TO BE BROUGHT UP AND RAISED

IN THAT, OBVIOUSLY A HUGE

BLESSING.

I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

DON'T KNOW AND DON'T THINK

THE WAY WE DO, BUT I

CHALLENGE YOU TO LOOK INTO

IT AND ACCEPT THIS FREE GIFT

OF ETERNAL LIFE.

WHAT'S COOLER THAN THAT?

Gordon: HERE ARE SPORTS

STARS, THEY'RE ON THE

GREATEST STAGE THE WORLD

HAS, AND THEY ARE SAYING, I

CHALLENGE YOU TO ASK HIM, TO

FIND OUT IS JESUS REAL?

AND THEY'RE SAYING AS GREAT

AS THE WORLD SERIES IS,

THERE IS SOMETHING A WHOLE

LOT BETTER.

AND THAT IS A RELATIONSHIP

WITH HIM.

AND WHEN YOU HAVE THAT, THE

THINGS THAT THE WORLD OFFERS

ARE AWFULLY DIM IN YOUR SITE

BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT A

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR

CREATOR.

AND YOU START TO KNOW THE

PURPOSE FOR WHICH YOU WERE

MADE, AND THEN YOU HAVE THIS

WONDERFUL PROMISE THAT HE

HAS CREATED GOOD THINGS,

GOOD WORKS FOR YOU TO WALK

INTO.

AND HE DID THAT BEFORE HE

CREATED ANYTHING.

HE WAS THINKING OF YOU.

AND HOW TO SATISFY YOU.

AND HOW TO BRING YOU THE

DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.

NOW, IF YOU WANT TO KNOW HIM

AND YOU WANT TO FIND OUT IS

THIS TRUE, THERE IS A VERY

SIMPLE PRAYER.

JESUS, IF YOU'RE THERE, IF

YOU'RE REAL, IF YOU CAME FOR

ME, IF YOU REALLY WANT TO

HAVE THIS RELATIONSHIP I

HEAR ABOUT, IF YOU REALLY

WANT THAT WITH ME, COULD YOU

SHOW ME?

AND IF YOU PRAY THAT WITH

ALL OF YOUR HEART, THE BIBLE

PROMISES THAT WHEN WE SEEK

HIM WITH ALL OF OUR HEART,

WE'LL FIND HIM.

YOU KNOW, YOU NEED TO

UNDERSTAND HE WANTS TO SHOW

UP.

HE WANTS TO MANIFEST HIMSELF

FOR YOU.

AND EVEN IF YOU WERE THE

ONLY ONE TO BELIEVE, HE

STILL WOULD HAVE COME JUST

FOR YOU.

THAT'S HOW VALUABLE YOU

ARE.

IN HIS SIGHT.

SO IF YOU WANT THIS, IF YOU

WANT A RELATIONSHIP, IF YOU

WANT TO MEET JESUS, BOW YOUR

HEAD WITH ME.

PRAY A VERY SIMPLE PRAYER,

AND LET HIM DO ALL OF THE

REST.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR OTHERS,

HE WANTS TO DO FOR YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, JUST

SAY HIS NAME -- JESUS, I

COME TO YOU, AND I WANT TO

KNOW YOU.

AND I WANT TO HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU.

SO, JESUS, IF THIS IS REAL,

IF YOU CAME TO SAVE ME, IF

YOU CAME TO HAVE THIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH ME, THEN I

WANT THAT.

SO I OPEN MY HEART TO YOU.

AND I ASK THAT YOU COME IN.

I ASK THAT YOU FORGIVE ME OF

ALL OF THE THINGS THAT I'VE

DONE WRONG, THAT YOU MAKE ME

NEW, THAT YOU FORGIVE ME.

SO BE WITH ME, JESUS.

COME INTO MY HEART.

COME INTO MY LIFE.

FOR I ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A BAPTISM

IN YOUR LOVE.

I ASK THAT YOU FILL THEM TO

OVERFLOWING WITH YOUR LOVE,

YOUR PEACE, YOUR MERCY, YOUR

GRACE.

BE WITH THEM AND LET THEM

KNOW RIGHT NOW THAT YOU WILL

NEVER LEAVE THEM.

YOU WILL NEVER FORSAKE

THEM.

WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME

BELIEVERS I WAN, I WANT YOU

TO DO SOMETHING.

I WANT YOU TO TELL SOMEONE

THAT YOU DID THAT.

IT'S REAL EASY.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER,

1-800-759-0700.

WHEN YOU CALL, I'VE GOT

SOMETHING FOR YOU.

IT IS A C.D. TEACHING.

WHAT DO I DO NOW?

WHAT DO CHRISTIANS BELIEVE?

WHAT ARE THE FOUNDATIONS OF

THE FAITH?

IT IS ALL FREE.

THE PHONE CALL IS FREE.

THE PACKET IS FREE.

NO FINANCIAL OBLIGATION AT

ALL.

WE WANT TO GET TO YOU THE

PRINCIPLES OF CHRISTIANITY

AND WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

WE ALSO ENCOURAGE YOU TO

JOIN A LOCAL CHURCH, AND WE

REALLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ

THE BIBLE EVERY DAY.

IT IS THROUGH THAT, THAT'S

THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND.

BUT START WITH THAT PHONE

CALL.

MAKE IT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, A WOMAN WHO WAS

ADVISED BY DOCTORS TO

TERMINATE HER PREGNANCY.

I SAID, WELL, I'LL DEAL

WITH WHATEVER COMES.

AND HE SAID, YOU SAY THAT

NOW, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW HOW

HARD IT REALLY IS GOING TO

BE.

Terry: HEAR THE WORDS

THAT SAVED HER BABY'S LIFE.

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY PLANS

ISRAEL.

DUBBED A PEACE UNIVERSITY,

IT WILL BE LOCATED IN

Terry: SHRAY IS A YOUNG

CAMBODIA GIRL, WHO HOPES TO

BE A PASTOR ONE DAY, JUST

LIKE HER DAD.

HE IS HARD-PRESSED TO PUT

FOOD ON THE TABLE, AND MANY

DAYS THEY HAVE GONE HUNGRY.

BUT NOT ANYMORE.

THANKS TO A GIFT FROM PEOPLE

LIKE YOU.

THE 9-YEAR-OLD SHRAY LOOKS

FORWARD TO CHURCH EACH

SUNDAY AND LOVES LISTENING

TO THE PASTOR PREACH.

THE PASTOR IS HER FATHER.

I LIKE LISTENING TO MY

DADDY PREACH THE WORD OF

GOD.

IT MAKES HIM HAPPY TO BRING

PEOPLE TO JESUS.

Terry: SHE HELPS HER

DAD BY TEACHING BIBLE SONGS

TO THE YOUNGER CHILDREN IN

CHURCH.

SHE WANTS TO BECOME A PASTOR

SOME DAY, TOO.

I WANT TO BE LIKE MY

FATHER.

I WANT MANY PEOPLE TO

BELIEVE IN JESUS.

Terry: THE PASTOR AND

HIS WIFE HAVE BEEN GETTING

BY ON THE SUPPORT OF THEIR

SMALL CONGREGATION, BUT IN

THIS COUNTRY, WHICH IS CLOSE

TO THE GOSPEL, HE WANTS TO

SHARE WITH MORE PEOPLE.

HE HAS BEEN TRAVELLING TO

OTHER VILLAGES WHEN HE CAN,

BUT WITH A NEW BABY ON THE

WAY, HIS EVANGELISM EFFORTS

WILL HAVE TO STOP.

MY FATHER TAUGHT ME TO

TRUST IN GOD, EVEN WHEN WE

HAVE NOTHING TO EAT.

WE PRAY TO GOD EVERY DAY AND

ASK HIM TO BLESS OUR

FAMILY.

Terry: WHEN CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" MET THE

PASTOR AND HIS FAMILY, WE

GAVE THEM A COW TO START A

SMALL BUSINESS.

I MAKE SURE SHE HAS

ENOUGH WATER TO DRINK AND

GRASS TO EAT.

Terry: THE COW WILL

PROVIDE THE FAMILY WITH MILK

TO DRINK AND TO SELL, AND

SOON IT WILL GIVE BIRTH TO A

CALF, WHICH THEY WILL ALSO

SELL.

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" ALSO

HELPS SHRAY TO GO TO SCHOOL

BY GIVING HER A UNIFORM AND

SUPPLIES AND PAYING FOR HER

MODEST SCHOOL FEES.

THANK GOD AND CBN SO I

CAN CONTINUE TO LEAD PEOPLE

TO JESUS.

THANK YOU.

Terry: IT IS A BLESSING

TO BE ABLE TO HELP PEOPLE

LIKE THAT.

AND YOU KNOW IT DOESN'T TAKE

VERY MUCH.

I LOVE THIS LITTLE GIRL.

FAMILY'S FAITH IS STRONG.

THEY'RE OUT THERE MAKING A

DIFFERENCE, BUT SOMETIMES IT

IS TOUGH TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

AND YET YOU, IF YOU'RE A

"700 CLUB" MEMBER, MADE IT

POSSIBLE FOR THEM TO HAVE

FOOD ON THEIR TABLE AND TO

HAVE ENOUGH INCOME TO BE

COMFORTABLE.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR

CARING.

IF YOU'RE NOT A "700 CLUB"

LITTLE GIRL'S PRECIOUS

TESTIMONY WILL TOUCH YOUR

Gordon: IDA WENT TO

EIGHT DIFFERENT DOCTORS.

AND THEY ALL SAID THE SAME

THING, ULTRASOUNDS SHOW THAT

IDA'S UNBORN CHILD HAD A

HEART DEFECT THAT WAS WAY

TOO SMALL.

SO THEY SUGGESTED AN

ABORTION.

BUT IDA AND HER HUSBAND TOOK

A DIFFERENT APPROACH.

Reporter:

OCTOBER 17th, 2008 WAS

IDA'S BIRTHDAY.

SHE AND HER HUSBAND, JOHN,

WERE EXPECTING THEIR SECOND

CHILD.

AND THE COUPLE HAD GONE IN

FOUR A ROUTINE ULTRASOUND.

THEY LOOKED A LITTLE BIT

CONCERNED ABOUT ONE ISSUE.

AND THEY WANTED TO FIND OUT

MORE ABOUT THAT.

Reporter: AS THE

GARABIDIANS PREPARED TO GO

TO DINNER THAT NIGHT TO

CELEBRATE IDA'S BIRTHDAY,

THEY RECEIVED A CALL FROM

IDA'S DOCTOR WHO INFORMED

HER, HER SON HAD HYPER

PLASTIC LEFT HEART

SYNDROME.

WE OPENED UP THE COMPUTER

AND STARTED READING ALL OF

THESE DETAILS ABOUT WHAT

HYPER PLASTIC LEFT HEART

SYNDROME IS AND WE WERE

HORRIFIED.

IT WAS DEVASTATING.

AND THE DOCTOR WAS

SPEAKING TO US ABOUT ALL OF

THE DIFFERENT CHROMOSOMEAL

CONDITIONS THERE MIGHT BE,

DOWN SYNDROME.

Reporter: THE DOCTORS

EVEN SUGGESTED TO IDA SHE

CONSIDER TERMINATING HER

BABY.

I SAID, WE'RE NOT GOING

TO TERMINATE THIS BABY.

I CAN'T IMAGINE DOING THAT.

WE'LL DEAL WITH WHATEVER

COMES.

GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF THIS.

AND HE SAID, YOU SAY THAT

NOW, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW HOW

HARD IT REALLY IS GOING TO

BE.

Reporter: THAT EVENING

IDA'S FATHER, WHO WAS OUT OF

TOWN ON BUSINESS, TURNED ON

"THE 700 CLUB."

I HAPPENED TO TURN ON THE

TELEVISION, AND THE END OF

THE "THE 700 CLUB" PROGRAM

WAS ON.

AND TERRY MEEUWSEN WAS

SPEAKING AT THE END OF THE

PROGRAM.

Terry: SOMEBODY ELSE,

YOU'VE JUST GOTTEN A

DIAGNOSIS, AND YOUR

PREGNANT, THAT THERE IS

SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOUR

BABY.

AND IT'S EVEN BEEN SUGGESTED

THAT YOU CONSIDER ABORTING

IT.

BUT GOD IS SAYING TO YOU,

TRUST ME, HAVE FAITH.

WHAT THEY'RE TELLING YOU IS

THE PROBLEM WITH YOUR CHILD

IS NOT THE PROBLEM.

TRUST GOD.

Reporter: GEORGE CALLED

IDA, AND SHE AND HER HUSBAND

WENT ON LINE TO WATCH AND

CLAIMED THE WORD FOR THEIR

BABY.

OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL

MONTHS, THEY IN LISTED

PRAYER PARTNERS AT CBN TO

STAND WITH THEM.

ANY TIME THERE WAS A

DOUBT, GOD WOULD PLACE

SOMEONE WITH ENCOURAGING

WORDS OR A BIBLE VERSE THAT

WOULD JUST -- THE WORDS

WOULD JUMP OUT AT ME, AND I

KNEW GOD WAS SPEAKING TO

ME.

Reporter: AS IDA'S

PREGNANCY ADVANCED, DOCTORS

WARNED HER TO PREPARE FOR A

SERIES OF SEVERAL SURGERIES

AFTER BIRTH.

THEY WERE SUGGESTING WE

NEED TO DO A THREE-STAGE

SURGERY ON HIM TO MAKE ALL

OF HIS HEART WORK ONLY FROM

HIS RIGHT SIDE.

SO EVERY ULTRASOUND WE WENT

TO, THEY WOULD PRETTY MUCH

SAY THE SAME THING.

Reporter: BUT THE

COUPLE CONTINUED TO BELIEVE

GOD.

NO MATTER WHAT THESE

TESTS WERE SHOWING AT THE

DOCTORS' OFFICES, MY GOD WAS

BIGGER THAN THESE TESTS.

HE GAVE US THE PROBLEM HE

WAS GOING TO HEAL HIM.

MY PRAYER SPECIFICALLY

WAS, LORD, GIVE THIS CHILD A

WHOLE HEART SO HE CAN

WHOLEHEARTEDLY SERVE YOU IN

THE FUTURE.

Reporter: LITTLE JOHN

WAS BORN ON MARCH 10th,

2009.

AND THE DOCTORS PREPARED THE

COUPLE FOR WHAT LAY AHEAD.

THE WHOLE ISSUE WITH JOHN

IS MITRO VALVE.

AND WHEN HE WAS BORN, THEY

WENT BACK AND DID THE

ECHOGRAM ON HIS HEART, AND

THEY SAW THE MITRAL VALVE

WAS MUCH SMALLER THAN IT

SHOULD BE.

HE WAS MEASURING 5.6

MILLIMETRES, AND THEY WERE

LOOKING FOR 10.

THERE WAS ABOUT A SIX-DAY

WAITING PERIOD BEFORE THE

SURGERY WAS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

I ASKED ONE OF THE PEDIATRIC

CARDIOLOGISTS IF THEY WOULD

DO AN ECHOGRAM THE NIGHT

BEFORE.

HE SAYS THE MITRAL VALVE

DOESN'T GROW.

Reporter: THE NEXT DAY

JOHN WENT INTO SURGERY AND

WAS TAKEN OFF THE HEART

VALVE MACHINE AFTER JUST 20

MINUTES.

THE DOCTOR CAME IN AND

SAID EVERYTHING WENT WELL

WITH THE SURGERY.

JOHN IS GOING TO BE FINE.

HE IS NOT GOING TO NEED

ANYMORE SURGERIES.

I ASKED HIM, WHAT ABOUT THE

MITRAL VALVE.

HE SAID, THE MITRAL VALVE

MEASURED AT LEAST A NINE

MILLIMETER.

SO IT WAS A LITTLE LARGER

THAN WE EXPECTED IT TO BE.

WE WERE SO REJOICING AND WE

KNEW THERE IT IS, THE LORD

SAID IT'S NOT GOING TO BE

WHAT THE DOCTOR SAID IT IS.

Reporter: TODAY LITTLE

JOHN IS A PERFECTLY HEALTHY

4-YEAR-OLD.

IDA AND JOHN SAY THEIR

EXPERIENCE HAS TAUGHT THEM

TO TRULY TRUST GOD.

THIS WHOLE PROCESS JUST

EXPLODED OUR FAITH, TO KNOW

THAT HE IS GOING TO DO IT.

WE ALWAYS KNEW HE COULD DO

IT, BUT NOW WE KNOW HE IS

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF US.

WE DON'T LOOK AT OUR

CIRCUMSTANCES.

WE LOOK AT GOD AND WE FOCUS

ON JESUS, AND HIM TELLING US

HIS PROMISES IN THE WORLD:

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH

ME; I'M WITH YOU ALWAYS.

AND HE WILL NEVER LEAVE US.

Gordon: THAT IS THE

KEY: DON'T FOCUS ON THE

PROBLEM; FOCUS ON THE

SOLUTION.

AND START REAL LIVES THAT

JESUS IS THE ANSWER TO EVERY

HUMAN NEED.

HE IS YOUR SALVATION.

HE'S YOUR HEALER.

HE IS YOUR COUNSELLOR.

HE IS YOUR PROVIDER.

THESE ARE HIS NAMES.

IT IS HIS VERY NATURE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO CONVINCE

HIM TO DO IT.

YOU JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE

WHAT HE HAS ALREADY DONE AND

HE HAS ALREADY SAID.

NOW, WHAT HAS HE ALREADY

DONE?

WELL, THE BIBLE SAYS, "BY

THE STRIPES WE WERE HEALED

HEALED."

START THINKING ABOUT WHEN

YOU'RE SINS WERE FORGIVEN.

THEY WERE FORGIVEN 2,000

YEARS AGO, ON THE CROSS,

BEFORE YOU EVEN COMMITTED

THEM.

WHEN WERE YOUR DISEASES

HEALED?

AT THE SAME TIME.

THE SAME TIME.

IT HAS ALREADY BEEN

ACCOMPLISHED.

AND IF YOU HAVE THE FAITH TO

BELIEVE YOUR SINS ARE

FORGIVEN, YOU HAVE THE FAITH

TO BELIEVE FOR HEALING.

SO DON'T LOOK AT YOUR

SYMPTOM.

DON'T LOOK AT YOUR PROBLEM.

DON'T LOOK AT YOUR PAIN.

I KNOW THAT'S HARD TO DO.

PAIN HAS A WAY OF SORT OF

BREAKING THROUGH AND

BRINGING DOUBT.

BUT LOOK TO JESUS.

HE IS THE AUTHOR AND THE

FINISHER OF YOUR FAITH.

SO IF HE IS GOING TO BEGIN

IT, HE'S GOING TO DO A GOOD

JOB.

AND IF HE IS GOING TO FINISH

IT, HE IS GOING TO DO A GOOD

JOB, TOO.

SO LET HIM COMPLETE THAT FOR

YOU AND START REALIZING

FAITH IS NOT SOMETHING YOU

DRUM UP.

FAITH IS A GIFT.

PEOPLE SAY, YOU KNOW, YOU

MUST HAVE GREAT FAITH.

NO, I JUST KNOW SOME REALLY

GREAT FACTS.

THAT JESUS WAS BORN, HE CAME

INTO THE WORLD.

THE PREEXISTING ONE

FULFILLED THE PROPHECIES

OVER HIS LIFE.

HELIVELIVED A SINLESS

LIFE.

HIS BLOOD IS PRECIOUS, IT IS

DIVINE AND HIS MIRACULOUS.

AND BY HIS STRIPE, I AM

HEALED.

AND HE WAS CRUCIFIED FOR MY

SINS.

HE BORED THEM ALL AWAY.

AND THREE DAYS LATER HE ROSE

AGAIN FROM THE GRAVE.

AND RIGHT NOW HE EVER LIVES

TO PRAY FOR YOU, FOR ME.

SO IF JESUS IS PRAYING FOR

US, WHAT MORE DO WE NEED?

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

AGREE.

AND BEFORE WE PRAY, WE WANT

TO ENCOURAGE YOU WITH SOME

OTHER MIRACLES.

AND HERE IS ONE THAT IS

INCREDIBLE.

JACLYN FROM PHILADELPHIA HAD

A DAUGHTER THAT WAS

SUFFERING WITH COLITIS FOR

18 MONTHS.

SHE WAS ON MEDICATION AND IT

WASN'T HELPING.

LAST JULY SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND, TERRY,

YOU HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU HAVE HAD PROBLEMS WITH

YOUR LOWER DIGESTIVE TRACT,

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW.

RECEIVE THE HEALING FROM THE

LORD.

JACLYN CLAIMED THE WATER FOR

HER DAUGHTER, AND HER

DAUGHTER BEGAN TO FEEL

BETTER RIGHT AWAY.

WHEN HE RETURNED TO THE

DOCTOR, SHE WAS TOLD HER

PROBLEM WAS GONE.

SHE NO LONGER HAD TO TAKE

MEDICINE OR GET ANY OTHER

KIND OF TREATMENT.

THAT IS WONDERFUL.

Terry: RIGLEY WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH A FATTY

LIVER.

THE CONDITION BROUGHT HER

DISCOMFORT ON A REGULAR

BASIS.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND GORDON,

YOU GAVE THIS WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU HAVE A CONDITION WITH

YOUR LIVER WITH EXCESS FAT

DEPOSITS.

GOD IS HEALING YOU NOW.

SHE SAID SHE FELT A WARMTH

PASS THROUGH HER BODY.

A WEEK LATER WHEN SHE WENT

TO THE SCHEDULED BIOPSY, THE

TESTS SHOWED HER LIVER WAS

NEITHER DISEASED NOR

INFECTED AND SHE IS

COMPLETELY HEALED.

Gordon: THANKS, GOD.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.

I BELIEVE FAITH IS AN

ACTION.

AND WHEN WE PUT OUR FAITH

INTO ACTION, THAT'S WHEN YOU

GET THE RESULT.

SO IN AN ACT OF FAITH, JUST

LAY YOUR HAND ON THAT AREA

OF THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

AND TERRY AND I WILL AGREE.

AND WE'LL CLAIM THIS VERSE:

"WHEN TWO OR MORE AGREE,

TOUCHING ANYTHING, IT SHALL

BE DONE FOR THEM BY MY

FATHER IN HEAVEN."

THESE ARE THE WORDS OF

JESUS.

YOU CAN COUNT ON THEM.

YOU CAN HAVE FAITH IN THEM.

SO LET'S DO THAT RIGHT NOW.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THE NEEDS

OF THE AUDIENCE TO YOU, AND

WE JUST ASK FOR HEALING.

FOR YOU ARE OUR HEALING.

YOUR VERY NAME IS HEALING.

SO WE ASK FOR THE HEALING OF

GOD TO GO INTO THESE BODIES

NOW.

AND WE JUST COMMAND THEM TO

BE HEALED NOW.

WE SAY TO THEM OUT LOUD, BE

HEALED AND BE MADE WHOLE.

BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS

CHRIST, I WAS HEALED, I AM

HEALED, AND I WILL BE

CONTINUALLY HEALED.

THROUGHOUT MY LIFE I WILL

DECLARE THE GLORY OF THE

LORD.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'RE

FACING A BIOPSY, AND YOU'RE

EXTREMELY WORRIED ABOUT A

NEGATIVE RESULT.

AND GOD HAS HEALED YOU.

IN JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS NO CANCER.

YOU DON'T NEED TO BE

WORRIED.

LET THE PEACE OF GOD JUST

COME AND GUARD YOUR HEART

AND MIND NOW, IN JESUS'

NAME.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE -- I DON'T KNOW IF

THIS IS AN ADULT OR A

CHILD -- YOU HAVE BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH SOME KIND OF

A BONE CONDITION THAT

AFFECTS YOUR WHOLE SKELETAL

MAKEUP, AND IT IS VERY

SERIOUS.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

COMPLETELY RIGHT NOW.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

JUST LET THE WARMTH OF HIS

HEALING POWER FLOW THROUGH

YOU, AND JUST SAY YES.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH PROBLEMS WITH

YOUR VOICE BOX AND YOUR

LARYNX, AND YOU'VE BEEN TOLD

BY A DOCTOR THAT YOU'LL

NEVER BE HEALED.

THAT YOUR VOCAL CHORDS ARE

DAMAGED, AND YOU'RE NEVER

GOING TO RECOVER YOUR NORMAL

VOICE.

GOD IS ABLE, AND HE IS

HEALING YOU RIGHT NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME, JUST RECEIVE

IT.

SOMEONE ELSE WITH PROBLEMS

IN YOUR BACK, AND IT HAS LED

TO A COMPRESSION ON YOUR

SPINE AND A PINCHING OF THE

NERVES, AND THERE IS

TREMENDOUS PAIN.

IN JESUS' NAME BE HEALED AND

BE SET FREE FROM THAT.

WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO BEFORE,

DO NOW.

JUST STAND UP AND RAISE YOUR

ARMS AND BEGIN PRAISING HIM

FOR THE HEALING THAT YOU'RE

RECEIVING RIGHT NOW.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED

WITH SOME KIND OF A HIP

ISSUE.

YOU WERE ACTUALLY BORN WITH

IT, BUT IT DIDN'T ACTUALLY

SHOW UP UNTIL JUST

RECENTLY.

IT CAUSES YOU TO -- IT

CHANGES THE WAY THAT YOU

WALK.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

JUST CREATIVELY RESTORING

WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE IN

YOUR HIP TO GIVE YOU AN EVEN

WALK, AND NO MORE PAIN OR

IMBALANCE.

Gordon: LORD, WE THANK

YOU, FOR YOU ARE THE

HEALER.

WHEN WE RECEIVE YOU, WE

RECEIVE THE ANSWER TO OUR

NEEDS.

WE THANK YOU FOR IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOOD REPORT.

AND WE WANT TO LET OTHERS

KNOW THAT GOD IS THE SAME,

JESUS IS THE SAME YESTERDAY,

TODAY, AND FOREVER.

WHAT HE DID 2,000 YEARS AGO,

HE IS STILL DOING TODAY.

HE IS STILL HEALING.

HE IS STILL SETTING PEOPLE

FREE.

SO WE WANT TO SHARE YOUR

STORY.

CALL US.

1-800-759-0700.

AND IF YOU NEED PRAYER, IT'S

OUR HONOR, IT'S OUR

PRIVILEGE TO PRAY FOR YOU.

WE BELIEVE IN PREVAILING

PRAYER.

WE WANT TO ASK AND KEEP ON

ASKING, AND WE WANT TO KNOCK

AND KEEP ON KNOCKING UNTIL

YOU GET THE ANSWER.

SO IT IS OUR PRIVILEGE TO

PRAY WITH YOU.

CALL US, 1-800-759-0700.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK TO

ANSWER E-MAIL QUESTIONS

RIGHT AFTER THISC THIS.

FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE I

WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH THIS

CONDITION.

THEY WERE PRAYING FOR

PEOPLE.

IT WOULD BE REALLY COOL IF

IT HAPPENED TO ME.

BUT NO WAY, THE SHOW IS TOO

BIG.

AND THEY STARTED TALKING

ABOUT THERE IS SOMEONE OUT

THERE WITH A FOOT PROBLEM.

Terry: YOU HAVE A

CONDITION WITH THE ARCHES OF

YOUR FEET, AND GOD IS

HEALING THAT FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

I PUT ONE FOOT ON THE

GROUND, AND THEN THE OTHER,

NO PAIN, NOTHING.

Terry: WE HAVE A FEW

MINUTES LEFT TO ANSWER

E-MAIL QUESTIONS THAT YOU

HAVE SUBMITTED.

THE FIRST ONE, GORDON, IS

FROM SHARON.

HAD SAYS, "I HAVE READ THAT

I NEED TO FIND A

BIBLE-BELIEVERS' CHURCH.

WHAT IS ONE AND WHY SHOULD I

GO TO ONE?"

Gordon: SHARON, YOU

NEED TO UNDERSTAND THERE ARE

CHURCHES -- THEY CALL

THEMSELVES CHURCHES, AND

THEY DON'T BELIEVE IN THE

BIBLE, DON'T BELIEVE IN

JESUS' BIRTH, BUT THEY STILL

CALL THEMSELVES CHURCHES.

YOU NEED TO FIND A CHURCH

THAT BELIEVES IN THE BIBLE

AND THAT'S WHERE YOU'LL GET

FED AND FIND FELLOWSHIP.

Terry: NANCY SAYS

"MOSES WAS SUPPOSEDLY NOT

ALLOWED TO ENTER THE

PROMISED LAND BECAUSE HE

DISOBEYED GOD IN NUMBERS

20.

BUT IN EXODUS 17, GOD TOLD

HIM TO STRIKE THE ROCK.

THIS IS TEARING ME UP

BECAUSE I REALLY LOVE

READING GOD'S WORD."

Gordon: DON'T BE TORN

UP.

GO BACK A FEW VERSES,

NUMBERS 20, AND YOU'LL FIND

THAT GOD SAID THIS TO MOSES,

"SPEAK TO THE ROCK BEFORE

THEIR EYES AND IT WILL YIELD

ITS WATER."

WHAT GOD WAS TRYING TO DO

WAS GET MOSES AWAY FROM

USING HIS STAFF BECAUSE

SOMETIMES THESE THINGS CAN

BECOME IDOLS FOR US.

AND THAT HAPPENED WITH THE

BRONZE SERPENT THAT WAS

CREATED TO DRIVE AWAY

DISEASE.

THE PRIESTS LATER HAD TO

DESTROY IT BECAUSE THE

ISRAELITES WERE ACTUALLY

BOWING DOWN TO WORSHIP IT.

GOD WAS TRYING TO MOVE MOSES

ALONG, TO SAY, OKAY, YOU'VE

HAD YOUR TIME WITH THE

STAFF.

NOW JUST TRY MY WORDS.

AND WHEN WE AS CHRISTIANS

REALIZE THAT THE WORD OF GOD

IN OUR MOUTHS IS JUST AS

POWERFUL AS IT IS IN HIS,

THAT'S WHEN YOU GET

MIRACLES.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM JOEL: "I WILL

POUR OUT MY SPIRIT ON ALL

FLESH.

YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS

SHALL PROPHESY, YOUR OLD MEN

SHALL DREAM DREAMS, AND YOUR

YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE

VISIONS."
