See why one couple decided to go against the doctor's advice and put their trust in God. Read Transcript


Gordon: A PREGNANT

MOTHER WHO WAS TOLD TO FEAR

THE WORST.

NO MATTER WHAT THE TESTS

WERE SHOWING AT THE DOCTORS'

OFFICES, MY GOD WAS BIGGER

THAN THESE TESTS.

Gordon: HEAR HOW SHE

GOT HER MIRACLE, AND YOU

CAN, TOO, ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

ON "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE,"

WE USE TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY

FOR EACH OTHER AND EXPLORE

TOPICS THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

Gordon: WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

FIVE YEARS AGO, IDA

CELEBRATED A BIRTHDAY SHE'LL

NEVER FORGET.

IT'S NOT BECAUSE SHE GOT

PRESENTS OR SHE HIT A

MILESTONE.

IDA REMEMBERS THAT DAY

BECAUSE OF THE PHONE CALL

SHE RECEIVED FROM HER

DOCTOR.

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

CONCERNED ABOUT ONE ISSUE.

AND THEY WANTED TO FIND OUT

MORE ABOUT THAT.

Reporter: AS THE FAMILY

PREPARED TO GO TO DINNER

THAT NIGHT TO CELEBRATE

IDA'S BIRTHDAY, THEY

RECEIVED A CALL FROM IDA'S

DOCTOR, WHO INFORMED HER

THAT HER SON HISTORY HYPER

PLASTIC LEFT HEART

SYNDROME.

WE OPENED UP THE

COMPUTER, AND WE STARTED

READING ALL OF THESE DETAILS

ABOUT WHAT IT WAS, AND IT

WAS HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE

NEWS.

WE WERE DEVASTATED.

THE DOCTORS WERE SPEAKING

TO US ABOUT ALL OF THE

DIFFERENT CHROM CHROMOSOMAL

ISSUES, AND EVEN DOWN

SYNDROME.

Reporter: AND THE

DOCTORS EVEN SAID THEY

SHOULD CONSIDER TERMINATING

THE PREGNANCY.

I SAID WE'RE NOT GOING TO

TERMINATE.

I SAID, WE'LL DEAL WITH

WHATEVER COMES.

GOOD WILL TAKE CARE OF IT.

AND HE SAID, YOU SAY THAT

NOW, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW HOW

HARD IT IS GOING TO BE.

Reporter: THAT EVENING

IDA'S FATHER, WHO WAS OUT OF

TOWN ON BUSINESS, TURNED ON

THE "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

I TURNED ON THE

TELEVISION, AND THE END OF

THE "700 CLUB" WAS ON, AND

TERRY MEEUWSEN WAS SPEAKING

AT THE END OF THE PROGRAM.

Terry: SOMEBODY ELSE,

YOU JUST GOT A DIAGNOSIS --

YOU'RE PREGNANT, AND THAT

THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG

WITH YOUR BABY.

AND IT WAS EVEN SUGGESTED

YOU ABORT IT.

GOD IS TELLING YOU TO HAVE

FAITH.

TRUST GOD.

Reporter: GEORGE CALLED

IDA, AND SHE AND HER HUSBAND

WENT ONLIAN TO WATC ONLINE

TO WATCH THE WORD OF GOD AND

CLAIMED IT FOR THEIR OWN.

EVERY TIME THERE WAS A

DOUBT, GOD WOULD PLACE

SOMEONE WITH ENCOURAGING

WORDS, OR A BIBLE VERSE THAT

WOULD JUST -- THE WORDS

WOULD JUMP OUT OF ME, AND I

KNEW GOD WAS SPEAKING TO

ME.

Reporter: AT 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

GARIBIDIAN'S CONTINUED TO

BELIEVE GOD.

NO MATTER WHAT THE TESTS

WERE SHOWING AT THE DOCTORS'

OFFICES, MY GOD WAS BIGGER

THAN THESE TESTS.

HE GAVE US THOSE PROMISES HE

WAS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF IT

AND HEAL HIM.

MY PRAYER WAS

SPECIFICALLY, LORD, GIVE

THIS CHILD A WHOLE HEART SO

HE CAN WHOLE HEARTED SERVE

YOU IN THE FUTURE.

Reporter: LITTLE JOHN

WAS BORN ON MARCH 10th,

2009, AND THE DOCTORS

PREPARED THE FAMILY FOR WHAT

LAY AHEAD.

THE WHOLE ISSUE WAS THE

MITRAL VALVE, WHICH WAS

SMALLER THAN WHAT IT WAS

SUPPOSED TO BE.

HE WAS MEASURING 5.6, AND

THEY WERE LOOKING FOR 10.

THERE WAS A SIX-DAY WAITING

PERIOD BEFORE THE SURGERY

WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

I ASKED ONE OF THE PEDIATRIC

CARDIOLOGISTS IF THEY WOULD

DO ANOTHER ECHOGRAM, AND HE

SAID THERE WAS NO FEED FOR

IT BECAUSE THE MITRAL VALVE

DOESN'T SHOW.

Reporter: THE NEXT DAY

JOHN WENT INTO SURGERY, AND

HE WAS TAKEN OFF THE MACHINE

AFTER JUST 20 MINUTES.

THE DOCTOR CAME IN AND

SAID EVERYTHING WENT WELL

WITH THE SURGERY.

JOHN IS GOING TO BE FINE.

HE WILL NOT NEED ANYMORE

SURGERIES.

ASKED HIM ABOUT THE

MITRAL VALVE, AND HE SAID IT

MEASURED AT LEAST NINE

MILLIMETRES, AND IT WAS A

LITTLE LARGER THAN IT WAS

SUPPOSED TO BE.

AND WE SAID, THERE IT IS.

THE LORD SAID IT ISN'T GOING

TO BE WHAT THE DOCTORS

SAID.

Reporter: IDA AND JOHN

SAID THIS WHOLE EXPERIENCE

MADE THEM REALLY TRUST IN

GOD.

WE ALWAYS KNEW HE COULD

DO, 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 WORD.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH

ME.

I'M WITH YOU ALWAYS.

AND HE'LL NEVER LEAVE US.

Gordon: HIS WORD IS

TRUE, AND HE BACKS UP HIS

WORD.

WHY?

BECAUSE HE IS THE WORD.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

THE WORD BECAME FLESH.

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE

WORD.

AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD.

AND THE WORD WAS GOD.

NOW, SOME PEOPLE ASK ME WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON'T GET A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

HERE JOHN AND IDA ARE, AND

THEY GOT A VERY SPECIFIC

WORD.

DON'T BELIEVE WHAT THE

DOCTORS ARE TELLING YOU.

I'VE GOT THIS IN MY HANDS.

AND I'M IN CONTROL OVER

HERE.

AND THEY FOLLOWED THAT WORD

AND ENCOURAGED THEM IN THE

MIDST OF A VERY DIFFICULT

PREGNANCY.

AND EVEN THOUGH THEY WENT

THROUGH THAT SURGERY, THEY

STILL HELD ON TO THE WORD.

THEY WEREN'T SHAKEN.

AND HAD IS A WONDERFUL

THING.

BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU

DON'T GET ONE?

WELL, HERE IS A WORD FOR

YOU, AND IT'S FOR EVERYONE.

AND IT'S FROM PSALM 103:

"BLESS THE LORD, ALL MY

SOUL, AND FORGET NOT ALL HIS

BENEFITS, WHO FORGIVES ALL

YOUR INIQUITIES, WHO HEALS

ALL YOUR DISEASES, WHO

REDEEMS YOUR LIFE FROM

DESTRUCTION, WHO CROWNS YOU

WITH LOVE AND KINDNESS AND

TENDER MERCIES, WHO SERVICE

YOU SATISFIES YOUR MOUTH

WITH GOOD THINGS SO THAT

YOUR YOUTH IS RENEWED."

THAT IS ONE FOR YOU TO

MEMORIZE.

AND IT BEGINS WITH BLESS THE

LORD, AND FORGET NOT ALL HIS

BENEFITS.

SO OFTEN IN THE MIDDLE OF

TROUBLE WE WANT TO FOCUS IN

ON THAT TROUBLE.

AND WE WANT TO FOCUS IN ON

WHY ISN'T GOD DOING

SOMETHING.

AND WE WANT TO SAY, GOD,

YOU'RE NOT RUNNING THE

UNIVERSE RIGHT BY ME RIGHT

NOW.

AND INSTEAD OF BLESSING HIM

AND THANKING HIM, AND DON'T

FORGET HIS BENEFITS --

THAT'S THE PATHWAY TO

VICTORY.

WHEN YOU COME INTO HIS

PRESENCE WITH THANKSGIVING,

REALIZING WHAT HAS HE DONE

FOR YOU SO FAR?

HOW HAS HE SEEN YOU

THROUGH?

HOW HAS HE PROTECTED YOU?

HOW HAS HE MADE SURE THAT

YOU DIDN'T FALL?

WELL, THEN IT GIVES YOU ALL

OF THE HOPE YOU NEED TO

UNDERSTAND THIS TIME, FOR

THIS TROUBLE, FOR THIS

PROBLEM, HE'LL BE THERE.

AND NOT ONLY WILL HE BE

THERE, HE'LL FORGIVE

EVERYTHING YOU'VE EVER DONE

WRONG.

HE'LL HEAL EVERY DISEASE.

HE'LL RESTORE YOU, AND THEN

HE'LL RENEW YOU.

THAT WORD IS FOR YOU BECAUSE

ALL OF THE PROMISES OF GOD

ARE YES AND AMEN.

FOR WHO?

FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST

JESUS.

SO IF YOU'RE IN HIM, THAT

PROMISE IS FOR YOU.

WELL, UP NEXT, WE'RE GOING

TO TAKE THAT PROMISE AND

WE'RE GOING TO BE PRAYING

FOR YOUR NEEDS.

BUT FIRST WE'RE GOING TO

ENCOURAGE YOUR FAITH.

YOU'LL MEET A MAN WHO

SURVIVED A BRAIN TUMOR AFTER

BEING GIVEN LESS THAN THREE

YEARS TO LIVE.

THAT'S COMING UP P.

.

Gordon: AT JUST 38

YEARS OLD, MATT CHANDLER

SEEMED TO HAVE IT ALL.

HE HAD A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY, A

GROWING CHURCH, AND ONE OF

THE MOST POPULAR POD

PODCASTS ON iTUNE.

HE HAD A GREAT LIFE, UNTIL

THE DAY HE NEARLY LOST IT

ALL.

NOBODY RUNS 80 YEARS

WITHOUT SOMEBODY THEY LOVE

DYING, WITHOUT GETTING SICK,

WITHOUT SERIOUS TRIALS.

NO ONE MAKES IT CLEAN

THROUGH LIFE IN A FALLEN

WORLD.

Reporter: THANKSGIVING

MORNING, I WAS GETTING READY

TO ACTUALLY -- I ACTUALLY

FELT REALLY GREAT.

I WOKE UP BEFORE ANYONE

ELSE, CRACKED OU OPEN THE

CINNAMON ROLL THINGS AND

GOING ABOUT MY MORNING IN

THE KITCHEN, GETTING READY.

I GOT UP, POURED MYSELF A

CUP OF COFFEE, AND I ASKED

HER HOW I COULD HELP.

AND SHE SAID TO FEET LAURA.

SO I FED LAURA.

AND I TURNED TO GO BACK TO

MY CHAIR --

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I

HEAR THIS CRASH.

AND I'M WAITING TO HEAR MATT

SAY, IT'S OKAY, BABE, I GOT

IT.

AND I DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING.

THE NEXT THING I HEAR IS

AUDREY, OUR THEN 6-YEAR-OLD,

SAY, DAD?

AND THAT WAS ODD BECAUSE I

DIDN'T HEAR MATT'S VOICE.

AND I WALKED IN, AND MATT IS

ON THE GROUND, CLOSE TO THE

HEARTH OF THE FIREPLACE,

HAVING A GRAND MALL

SEIZURE.

WE WERE TOLD AT THE

HOSPITAL WHEN I STARTED KIND

OF COMING TO, THEY SAW A

SHADOW ON THE C.T. SCAN AND

THEY WANTED TO DO AN M.R.I.

THEY TOOK HIM BACK FOR

TESTS AND THEY DID FIND A

TUMOR.

AND THE E.R. DOCTOR

RECOMMENDED THAT WE SEE A

NEUROSURGEON AS SOON AS WE

COULD.

LIFE FOR ME, UP UNTIL

THAT POINT, HAD JUST ALWAYS

BEEN BEST CASE SCENARIO.

AND SO I THOUGHT, OKAY,

WE'LL GO SEE THE

NEUROSURGEON, AND THEY'LL

GIVE ME THE RIGHT MEDS, AND

WE'LL KEEP TRUCKING ALONG.

WHEN WE GOT INTO HIS

OFFICE AND HE STARTED

SHOWING US THE FILM, IT IS

EVIDENT IT IS LARGE.

HE VERY BLUNTLY SAID,

THIS LOOKS REALLY BAD.

WE'VE GOT TO GO IN REALLY

QUICK.

I'VE MADE FOR YOU ON

FRIDAY.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DO A

CRANIOTOMY AND GET AROUND

IT.

WHEN FRIDAY MORNING CAME,

I GOT TO PRAY WITH MATT AND

SING OVER HIM.

THERE WAS THIS QUESTION OF

WHO WILL HE BE WHEN HE COMES

OUT?

IT WAS AN EIGHT AND A

HALF HOUR CRANIOTOMY.

THE DIAGNOSIS WE GOT FROM

THE DOCTORS WAS ANAPLASTIC,

WHICH MEANS MALIGNANT, A

TYPE OF PRIMARY BRAIN

CANCER.

STATISTICS SAY I HAVE TWO TO

THREE YEARS OF LIFE.

THE DAYS AFTER THAT, HE

DIGRESSED.

MY BIG FEAR WAS THAT YOU

JUST DON'T DIE PRETTY FROM

THIS ONE.

AND YOU LOSE PARTS OF YOUR

MIND.

YOU STOP BEING YOU.

AND SO MY GREAT FEAR WAS MY

KIDS WOULD WATCH MY WASTE

AWAY AND WOULD GROW BIDDER

TOWARDS THE GOD I LOVE SO

DEEPLY.

AND IT WOULD UNNERVE ME.

AND SO TO SEE THEM -- MAN, I

WOULD JUST PUT ON WORSHIP

MUSIC AND MY HEADPHONES, AND

I WAS JUST KIND OF

WITHDRAWN.

I WAS JUST TRYING TO COPE.

I GAVE HIM THE SPACE, BUT

THEN THERE WAS A POINT WHERE

I FELT LIKE HE WAS AT A

PLACE THAT HE COULD ENTER IN

BACK WITH US.

I TRIED TO GRACIOUSLY

APPROACH HIM AND SAY, BABE,

I KNOW THIS IS A LOT TO DEAL

WITH, BUT YOU'RE WITH US

NOW, AND WE NEED YOU TO BE

PRESENT.

BECAUSE YOU'RE HERE.

YOU'RE NOT GONE.

AND SO SHE WAS REALLY THE

ONE THAT KIND OF SAID, HEY,

LET'S DO THIS.

LET'S MAKE THE MOST OF JESUS

IN IT, AND THAT'S WHAT WE

DID.

I NEVER FELT FRAGILE, I'M 6'

5," 200 POUNDS.

WHEN THEY STARTED THAT FIRST

FULL DOSE ROUND OF THE

CHEMO, I BECAME VERY

DEPRESSED AND FELT LIKES MY

INSIDES WERE ROTTING OUT.

FOR THE FIRST TIME ON A

CONSISTENT BASIS FOR NEARLY

TWO YEARS, I HAD ABOUT EIGHT

DAYS A MONTH.

I WAS JUST DONE.

YOU START TO REALLY SEE

WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT AND

WHAT'S NOT IMPORTANT.

AND WHEN IT'S ALL SAID AND

DONE, IT'S ME AND THE LORD.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

IT IS ME AND GOD.

AND THEN THAT IDEA THAT EVEN

WHEN I WAS WALKING THROUGH,

IT'S FOR MY HIS AND HIS

GLORY, AND TRYING TO GET MY

HEAD AROUND THIS BEING FOR

MY GOOD, AS AWFUL AS IT

WAS.

BUT THEN I WOULD START TO

SEE IT, AND IN THOSE MOMENTS

I WAS, LIKE, I'M REALLY ALL

IN HERE.

I REALLY BELIEVE THIS.

THE EMPATHY THAT WAS CREATED

IN MY HEART FOR OTHERS WHO

SUFFER.

THE IDEA OF BEING ABLE TO

MOURN WITH THOSE WHO MOURN.

ALL OF THAT CAME OUT OF THIS

SEASON.

DURING THAT SEASON, WHEN

WHAT I WAS ASKING THE LORD

IS HE WOULD JUST USE OUR

STORY TO GLORIFY HIM AND

OTHER PEOPLE WOULD FIND

COMFORT IN IT.

WE ARE PAST THREE YEARS

NOW, COMING UP ON FOUR

YEARS, AND THERE HAS BEEN NO

RECURRENCE.

ALL OF MY SCANS HAVE COME

BACK PERFECTLY CLEAR.

I'VE BEEN OFF CHEMO AND

EVERYTHING FOR OVER A YEAR

NOW.

TO HAVE MATT LONGER, AND

TO HAVE CLEAN SCANS, EACH

SCAN I AM GRATEFUL.

EACH DAY THAT WE HAVE WITH

OUR KIDS AS A FAMILY, I'M SO

MUCH MORE GRATEFUL.

THE SINGLE GREATEST THING

I LEARNED THROUGH IT ALL IS

I REALLY BELIEVE THIS.

I REALLY HAVE ALL OF MY

CHIPS IN.

I'M NOT -- THE THOUGHT OF

STANDING IN FRONT OF GOD AT

EARLY 30s, WITH THREE

SMALL CHILDREN AT HOME AND A

BEAUTIFUL WIFE WHO NOW IS

HUSBANDLESS -- LIKE I WAS

ABLE TO LAY THAT DOWN AND

SAY, HEY, I'M YOURS.

YOU'RE WHAT I WANT.

YOU'RE MY TREASURE.

YOU'RE WHAT I'M AFTER.

THE CRAZY THING IS, OH, MY

GOSH, I BELIEVE IT.

I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY

BELIEVE IT.

Gordon: MATT LEARNED

ONE OF THE GREAT SECRETS.

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT

JESUS IS YOUR REWARD, GOD IS

YOUR REWARD, YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM IS THE

GREATEST THING IN THE

UNIVERSITY.

AND IF YOU PURSUE THAT AND

LAY ASIDE EVERYTHING ELSE,

WELL, THAT'S WHEN THE

MIRACULOUS STARTS TO OCCUR

IN YOUR LIFE.

BECAUSE IN HIS PRESENCE, AND

WITH HIM, IS EXCEEDING JOY.

THE APOSTLE PAUL WROTE, TO

DIE IS A GAIN.

I'LL BE WITH JESUS.

IT WILL BE WONDERFUL.

AND THEN HE SAYS, OUR

PRESENT TROUBLE IS BUT

FLEETING.

IT'S GONE.

AND IN THE LIGHT OF

ETERNITY, WHATEVER IT IS

YOU'RE GOING THROUGH, IT'S

ACTUALLY QUITE SMALL.

SO MATT REALIZED THAT.

HE DIDN'T HAVE TO ARGUE WITH

GOD.

HE DIDN'T HAVE TO CONVINCE

GOD.

WELL, YOU DON'T WANT THESE

CHILDREN TO GROW UP WITHOUT

A DAD.

AND MY WIFE NEEDS ME.

NO.

HE SAID, YOU'RE MY REWARD.

I'M IN YOUR HANDS.

WHATEVER IT IS YOU WANT TO

DO, IT'S OKAY.

AND NOT MY WILL BE DONE, BUT

YOUR WILL.

AND IT'S THAT PRAYER OF

GETHSEMANE, WHERE YOU SEE

THE BREAKTHROUGH BECAUSE

YOUR CONFIDENT OF YOUR

RESURRECTION, YOU'RE

CONFIDENT OF YOUR FUTURE,

YOU'RE CONFIDENT THAT HE HAS

EVERYTHING, AND HE IS

WORKING ALL THINGS TOGETHER

FOR YOUR GOOD.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.

BEFORE WE PRAY, I WANT TO

READ SOME OTHER PRAYER

REQUESTS THAT HAVE COME IN.

BUT AS I'M READING THEM, YOU

JUST THINK TO YOURSELF, CAN

YOU BLESS THE LORD?

CAN YOUR SOUL, FROM YOUR

DEEPEST PART OF YOU -- CAN

YOU BLESS HIM?

AND FORGET NOT ALL HIS

BENEFITS.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS HE HAS

DONE FOR YOU?

AND JUST START LISTING THEM

ALL?

AND THEN REALIZE THE

GREATEST BENEFIT, THE

GREATEST THING YOU HAVE, IS

HIM.

AND IF YOU HAVE HIM AND YOU

PUT HIM FIRST, THEN ALL

THESE OTHER THINGS ARE GOING

TO WORK OUT.

YOU DON'T NEED TO WORRY

ABOUT THEM.

JUST PUT HIM FIRST.

NOW WE'RE GOING TO READ A

PRAYER REQUEST.

HERE A ANNABELLE, WHO WRITES

IN, "PLEASE PRAY FOR ME.

I HAVE A LUMP ON MY BREAST

THAT HAS CAUSED ME TO HAVE

SLEEPLESS NIGHTS."

LISA SAYS, "MY NEPHEW QUINN

SUFFERS FROM ACTIVITY

INDUCED MIGRAINES.

AN M.R.I. SHOWED A SPOT ON

HIS BRAIN.

HE IS JUST 6 YEARS OLD."

DIANE, "I'M BATTLING CANCER

AGAIN AFTER BEING CLEAR FOR

FIVE YEARS.

I'M TRYING TO RECOVER FROM

THE LAST CHEMO TREATMENT

BEFORE THE NEXT ROUND

BEGINS.

I HAVE NO APPETITE, SO

EVERYTHING FEELS SO HARD.

PLEASE PRAY."

BECKY, "MY HUSBAND AND I ARE

PREGNANT WITH TWINS, AND I

WENT TO THE HOSPITAL BECAUSE

OF STOMACH PAINS.

THEY DID TESTS AND THEY

FOUND ONLY ONE BABY'S

HEARTBEAT.

THEY SENT ME TO ANOTHER

HOSPITAL FOR FURTHER

TESTING."

AND FROM OUR CHATROOM, BETTY

ANN, "I HAVE ADRENAL

FATIGUE, AUTO IMMUNE

HEPATITIS.

PLEASE PRAY FOR HEALING."

MELANIE, "I HAVE SHOULDER,

NECK AND BACK PAIN.

IT IS OW SO PAINFUL I SHOUT

OUT."

AND TIFFANY, "I NEED

PRAYER."

I BELIEVE FAITH IS ALWAYS AN

ACTION.

IN AN ACT OF FAITH, LAY YOUR

HAND ON THAT AREA OF THE

BODY THAT NEEDS HEALING.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY NEEDS

IN YOUR LIFE, PRAISE GOD.

COULD YOU JOIN WITH US AND

PRAY FOR OTHERS.

AND LET'S CREATE A GREAT

CIRCLE OF PRAYER.

UNDERSTANDING THAT WE CAN

BLESS HIM BECAUSE HE

FORGIVES ALL OUR

INEQUITIES.

HE RESTORES.

HE RENEWS.

HE I IS THE PLACE WE GO

TO.

AND WE GO INTO HIS PRESENCE

WITH SINGING, WITH

THANKSGIVING FOR ALL THAT HE

HAS DONE.

AND THE CONFIDENCE IN THAT

THANKSGIVING, THAT WHAT HE

HAS DONE BEFORE HE'LL DO

AGAIN BECAUSE JESUS IS THE

SAME, YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THE NEEDS

OF THE AUDIENCE TO YOU RIGHT

NOW.

AND AS PEOPLE, IN AN ACT OF

FAITH, ARE LAYING THEIR HAND

ON THAT AREA OF THE BODY

THAT NEEDS HEALING AND NEEDS

A TOUCH FROM YOU, WE JUST

COME INTO AGREEMENT.

AND TOGETHER WE COME TO YOU

WITH THANKSGIVING FOR ALL

THAT YOU'VE DONE, HOW YOU'VE

SEEN US THROUGH.

HOW YOU'VE RESTORED US.

HOW YOU'VE FORGIVEN US.

HOW YOU'VE HEALED US.

AND WE COME INTO AGREEMENT

NOW FOR THIS HEALING.

AND WE SAY OUT LOUD TO IT,

BE HEALED AND BE AHEAD

WHOLE.

FOR THE SPOT ON THE BRAIN OF

THE 6-YEAR-OLD, BE GONE.

NO MORE MIGRAINES.

NO MORE STRESS.

BUT JUST RIGHTEOUSNESS,

PEACE, AND JOY IN THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE HAD

RECURRING CANCERS, LORD,

HEAL AND TOUCH.

AND WE JUST COMMAND THIS

CANCER TO LEAVE THEM NOW.

FOR THE WOMAN WITH TWINS,

LORD RESTORE THE HEARTBEAT.

RESTORE LIFE.

LET HER BE A GIVER OF LIFE.

AND, LORD, MOST OF ALL, WE

THANK YOU.

AND WE BLESS YOU FOR ALL

THAT YOU'VE DONE, HOW YOU'VE

SEEN US THUS FAR.

WE'VE COME THIS FAR BY

FAITH, LEANING ON THE LORD.

AND SO WE WOULD JUST RESOLVE

NOW TO CONTINUE LEANING ON

YOU.

NOT ON OUR OWN

UNDERSTANDING, BUT ON YOU,

WITH A CONFIDENCE THAT

YOU'LL DIRECT OUR PATHS.

HEAR US, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

ALL IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE'RE

HERE FOR YOU.

AND IT'S OUR HONOR.

IT'S OUR PRIVILEGE TO PRAY

WITH YOU.

AND WE BELIEVE IN PREVAILING

PRAYER.

SO IF YOU NEED SOMEONE TO

AGREE WITH YOU DAILY, WE

WANT TO DO THAT.

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

1-888-777-1999.

WELL, COMING UP, A SOCCER

INJURY LEAVES A TEENAGER

WITH A SERIOUS INFECTION.

SEE WHAT KEEPS HIM FROM

LOSING HIS ARM.

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: WHEN A TEENAGER

NAMED NINO HURT HIS ARM, HE

HAD NO IDEA HOW BADLY HE WAS

INJURED.

BY THE TIME HE SAW A DOCTOR,

AN INFECTION HAD SPREAD INTO

THE BONE.

NINO WAS ON THE VIRGE OF

LOSING HIS ARM, UNTIL A

NEIGHBOR TOLD HIM WHERE TO

FIND HELP.

Reporter: THE PAIN IN

AND INFECTION IN 16-YEAR-OLD

NINO'S ARM BEGAN WHEN HE

TORE SOME MUSCLES DURING A

SOCCER GAME.

THE PAIN LASTED FOR

DAYS.

AFTER IT HAPPENED, I

COULDN'T EVEN USE MY RIGHT

ARM.

Reporter: NINO'S MOTHER

WAS MOVED TO TEARS AS SHE

REMEMBERED WATCHING HER SON

SUFFER.

HE SAID TO HIS DAD, MY

ARM IS HURTING SO BAD.

Reporter: AT FIRST

NINO'S PARENTS DIDN'T

REALIZE HOW SERIOUS THE

INJURY WAS.

BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY

MONEY, THEY RESORTED TO

MASSAGE THERAPY FOR

TREATMENT.

BUT THE TORN MUSCLES WERE

SOON INFECTED.

AND AS THE ARM BEGAN TO

SWELL, OPEN SORES BEGAN TO

SWELL.

THE FAMILY WONDERED HOW THEY

COULD AFFORD TO TAKE THEIR

SON TO THE HOSPITAL.

THAT'S WHEN A NEIGHBOR

SUGGESTED THEY GO TO SEE

"OPERATION BLESSING."

THERE AN ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

CHECKED THE TEEN'S ARM AND

DISCOVERED THE INFECTION HAD

GONE INTO HIS ARM.

I KNEW IF WE DIDN'T

OPERATE IMMEDIATELY, HE

WOULD HAVE TO HAVE HIS ARM

AMPUTATED.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" SET UP

THE EMERGENCY SURGERY TO

REMOVE THE INFECTION.

AND THEN OVER THE NEXT YEAR,

WE PROVIDED HIM WITH CASTS,

ARM BANDAGES AND MEDICINES

AND PHYSICAL THERAPY.

MY HUSBAND AND I ARE SO

THANKFUL TO SEE HIS ARM

HEALED.

WE REALLY WANT TO THANK

"OPERATION BLESSING."

Reporter: NINO HAS

DREAMS OF HIS OWN.

HE ALWAYS WANTED TO WORK IN

A MOTORCYCLE SHOP.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

FULFILLED THAT DREAM BY

HELPING HIM LEARN THE

TRADE.

AS FOR HIS ARM, IT IS BACK

TO NORMAL.

NO MORE INFECTION AND NO

MORE PAIN.

MY ARM IS SO MUCH BETTER

THAN BEFORE.

I CAN USE IT AND MOVE IT

FREELY.

I WANT TO THANK "OPERATION

BLESSING."
