COMING UP, AN ANTISEMITE

WHO HATED THE JEWS.

WATCH WHAT HAPPENED WHEN HE

FOUND OUT HE WAS ONE.

AND THEN...

YOU COULD FEEL THE PAIN.

THIS WOMAN GOT HEALED

FROM DISEASE.

SHE JUST DESCRIBED

EXACTLY WHAT I HAD.

FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN,

TOO.

PLUS, A CHRISTMAS

CELEBRATION WITH

AWARD-WINNING GROUP, "FOR

KING AND COUNTRY," ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'VE GOT A WONDERFUL

PROGRAM FOR YOU.

BY THE WAY, HERE IN VIRGINIA

BEACH, WHERE WE'RE LOCATED,

THE TEMPERATURE IS GOING TO

BE ABOUT 71°.

VERY MODERATE, AND PEOPLE

SAY, ARE YOU GOING TO RIDE

YOUR HORSE?

THE ANSWER IS ABSOLUTELY.

OF COURSE, MOST OF THE

COUNTRY IS BELOW ZERO, AND

THAT HAS LED TO DEAD THE

CONDITIONS ON ROADS.

Terry: THE COLD WEATHER

HAS BROUGHT ICE TO TEXAS AND

ARKANSAS.

FORECASTERS CALLING IT THE

COLDEST DECADE IN HISTORY.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: ACROSS THE

COUNTRY, TEMPERATURES

PLUMMETTED OVERNIGHT.

THE COLD WEATHER SYSTEM

DELIVERING A WINTERY PUNCH

TO TWO DOZEN STATES.

METEOROLOGISTS SAY IT IS ONE

OF THE COLDEST AIR MASSES TO

HIT THE U.S. SINCE THE

1990s.

SLICK AND ICY ROADS ARE

MAKING DRIVING CONDITIONS

DANGEROUS, CAUSING HUNDREDS

OF ACCIDENTS.

FATAL CRASHES HAVE BEEN

REPORTED ACROSS SEVERAL

STATES, AT LEAST FIVE OF

THEM IN MINNESOTA.

WE'RE GOING TO HIT!

Reporter: BECAUSE THE

DANGEROUS CONDITIONS AREN'T

STOPPING POSTAL CONDITIONS

IN NORTHERN MINNESOTA, EVEN

AFTER TWO FEET OF SNOW.

IT IS NOT ALWAYS THE MOST

ENJOYABLE TIME OF YEAR, WHEN

WE HAVE BAD WEATHER

CONDITIONS, BUT WE TRY TO

STAY IN THE CHRISTMAS

SPIRIT.

Reporter: A NEW STORM

IS ABOUT TO DEVELOP IN

MEXICO AND WEST TEXAS.

WE ALREADY HAVE ALL OF

OUR EQUIPMENT AND MANPOWER

STRATEGICALLY PLACED

THROUGHOUT THE DISTRICT.

THEY'RE IN AREAS WHERE THEY

CAN BE QUICKLY AND EASILY

MOBILIZED WHEN THE TIME

COMES.

Reporter:

UNFORTUNATELY, THE STORM IS

EXPECTED TO HIT JUST IN TIME

FOR THE DALLAS MARATHON.

RUNNERS SAY THEY'RE NOT SURE

THEY'RE PREPARED FOR THE

WINTERY CONDITIONS.

I DON'T RUN ON ICE.

Reporter: WIDESPREAD

POWER OUTAGES ARE EXPECTED

AS THE STORM GOES SOUTH AND

THEN EAST.

HEAVY ICE AND SNOW

ACCUMULATIONS WILL LIKELY

BRING DOWN POWER LINES,

LEADING TO OUTAGES THAT

COULD TAKE DAYS TO REPAIR.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHERE IS MY GOOD

FRIEND, ALLEGORY AL AL AL

GORE, WHEN YOU NEED HIM.

SOMEONE DIDN'T GET THE

MEMO.

Terry: IT IS BEAUTIFUL

WHEN YOU SEE IT, BUT IT IS

DEADLY WHEN IT COMES TO

AREAS THAT AREN'T ABLE TO

HANDLE IT.

Pat: I GREW UP IN THE

MOUNTAINS.

AND WE HAD SNOW, AND WE GOT

USED TO IT.

DOWN HERE, IF YOU GET A HALF

INCH OF SNOW, IT IS A FREAK

OUT TIME AND THEY CLOSE THE

SCHOOLS.

Terry: THE DIFFICULT

THING FOR A LOT OF AREAS IS

IT IS RAIN FIRST AND THEN

SNOW --

Pat: IT'S DEADLY.

PEOPLE SAY I DREAM OF A

WHITE CHRISTMAS, AND YOU

MIGHT HAVE IT THIS YEAR.

THIS IS AN INTERESTING FACT:

IT HAS BEEN ASSUMED THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA GOT THE

YOUTH VOTE, THAT THE COLLEGE

STUDENTS WERE WITH HIM.

BUT SURVEYS NOW SHOW THE

PRESIDENT IS LOSING SOME OF

HIS MOST IMPORTANT

SUPPORTERS.

THIS IS A SHOCKING STORY

THAT JOHN JESSUP IS GOING TO

BRING US FROM WASHINGTON.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, THAT'S

RIGHT.

YOUNG PEOPLE ARE ABANDONING

PRESIDENT OBAMA IN BIG

NUMBERS.

IN FACT, MANY OF THEM SAY

THEY WOULD VOTE TO THROW HIM

OUT OF OFFICE.

THOSE ARE SOME OF THE

FINDINGS BY THE HARVARD

UNIVERSITY OF POLITICS.

THE PRESIDENT'S APPROVAL

RATING AMONG YOUNG PEOPLE

HAS FALLEN TO 41%.

AND 52% OF THOSE FROM 18 TO

24 SAY THEY WOULD VOTE TO

RECALL THE PRESIDENT IF THEY

COULD.

YOUNGER AMERICANS DON'T LIKE

OBAMACARE OR THE GOVERNMENT

SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM, AND

THEY'RE CONCERNED ABOUT

THEIR FUTURE.

AND THE POLL FOUND A GROWING

DISILLUSIONMENT.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE REPORTS PASTOR

SAEED ABEDINI REPEATEDLY HAS

BEEN ROBBED AND THREATENED

AT KNIFE-POINT BY OTHER

PROPOSITIO PRISONERS, AND

HIS HEALTH IS QUICKLY

DETERIORATING.

AND IRANIAN AUTHORITIES

REFUSE TO GIVE HIM HIS

MEDICATION.

JAY SECULO IS IN EUROPE,

MEETING WITH LEADERS, AND HE

IS URGING THEM TO APPLY

PRESSURE ON IRAN FOR PASTOR

SAEED'S RELEASE.

TO MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD,

LOG ON TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT?

Pat: HOW CAN SECRETARY

OF STATE JOHN KERRY BE

CLAPPING HIS HANDS WITH GLEE

OVER A NUCLEAR ARMS DECISION

AND TREATY WHEN THESE

IRANIANS ARE STICKING THEIR

FINGER IN OUR EYES.

I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.

NOR CAN I UNDERSTAND THE

P.R. CONSEQUENCES OF

SOMETHING AS VIAL AS THIS.

THIS IS AN AMERICAN.

THIS GUY, SURE, HE MAY HAVE

BEEN BORN IN IRAN, BUT HE IS

AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.

AND HE IS BEING HELD BECAUSE

OF HIS FAITH.

HE IS A CHRISTIAN.

AND FOR THE IRANIANS TO DO

THIS, WHO ARE THEY KIDDING?

WHAT A TERRIBLE BLACK EYE IN

FRONT OF THE WORLD.

AND YET WE'RE BUYING IT AND

WE'RE SMILING AND SAYING,

OH, IT'S THE ARAB SPRING AND

ALL OF THAT KIND OF STUFF.

AND WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT THEIR NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

YES, WE DO HAVE TO WORRY.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, ONE IN

SIX VETERANS STRUGGLE WITH

MENTAL HEALTH AND DRUG

ISSUES, AND MANY OF THESE

MEN AND WOMEN WHO ONCE

PROTECTED OUR FREEDOMS NOW

FIND THEMSELVES IN TROUBLE

WITH THE LAW.

THIS WEEK IN WASHINGTON, THE

SPOTLIGHT WAS ON ONE

PROMISING PROGRAM THAT COULD

KEEP VETS FIGHTING ADDICTION

OUT OF JAIL.

JOHN WAGGI HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: RETURNING TO

NORMAL LIFE COULD BE A BIG

CHALLENGE, ESPECIALLY FOR

THE 2.5 MILLION THAT SERVED

IN AFGHANISTAN.

ONE GROUP ESTIMATES THAT THE

NUMBER OF VETERANS TREATED

TOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE HAS

JUMPED NEARLY 40%.

AT A CONFERENCE IN

WASHINGTON, ADVOCATES HAILED

THE PROGRAM, SAYING THEY

HAVE A HIGH SUCCESS RATE OF

KEEPING PEOPLE OUT OF JAIL,

AND CAN DO THE SAME FOR

VETERANS TRAPPED BY

ADDICTION.

THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF

DRUG CORPS PROFESSIONAL

PARTICIPATED IN THE

CONFERENCE.

IN A RECENT TELEVISION

INTERVIEW, THE GROUP'S

C.I.A. SAID, WE CAN

LITERALLY CUT CRIME UP TO

50%.

THAT SAVES TAXPAYERS A TON

OF MONEY.

AND A DRUG CORPS GRADUATE

SAYS, I HAVE PIECES OF MY

LIFE COME BACK TO ME.

THEY WANT TO TARGET VETS WHO

ARE STRUGGLING WITH

ADDICTION AS WELL.

AND GOVERNMENT LEADERS ARE

HOPEFUL.

INSTEAD OF JAILING

VETERANS BROUGHT UP ON

CHARGES OR RELEASING THEM

BACK ON TO THE STREETS, YOU

HAVE UNDERWRITTEN TREATMENT

AS A POWERFUL OPTION FOR

DEALING WITH THOSE WHO HAVE

BROKEN OUR LAWS.

THE NADCP CLAIMS 75% OF

THEIR GRADUATES REMAIN

ARREST-FREE AT LEAST TWO

YEARS AFTER LEAVING THE

PROGRAM.

AND TAXPAYERS SAVE MORE THAN

$3 IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE COST

FOR EVERY DOLLAR INVESTED IN

THE PROGRAM.

IF WE'RE GOING TO BREAK

THE CYCLE BETWEEN

INCARCERATION AND

HOMELESSNESS, WE'LL HAVE TO

RAISE OUR LEVEL OF

COLLABORATION, AND LEVERAGE

ALL OF OUR ASSETS, TO

ADDRESS THESE FACTORS THAT

SEEM SO PERVASIVE WHEN

DEALING WITH TROUBLED

VETERANS.

Reporter: JO JOHN

WAGGI, CBN NEWS NEWS.

FOR EIGHT DAYS, PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD CELEBRATE

HANUKKAH.

CHRIS MITCHELL VISITED THE

BEAUTIFUL CITY OF JERUSALEM

AND SHOWS US THE BEAUTIFUL

LIGHTS MARKING THIS YEAR'S

CELEBRATION.

Reporter: THOUSANDS OF

ISRAELIS COME TO JERUSALEM

OLD CITY AT HANUKKAH TO

CELEBRATE AND SEE THE

LIGHTS.

ALL OVER THE WORLD, JEWS SAY

SPECIAL PRAYERS, THANKING

GOD FOR MIRACLES PAST AND

PRESENT, AND LIGHT A MENORAH

CALLED A HANAKI, FOR EIGHT

DAYS.

THIS IS A HOLIDAY ABOUT

VALUE.

THIS IS A HOLIDAY ABOUT

CONNECTING TO GOD.

SO MANY ISRAELIS COME

HERE, AND EVERYBODY IS

ATTRACTED TO THE LIGHT.

Reporter: ALSO KNOWN AS

"THE FEAST OF DEDICATION,"

HANUKKAH IS NOT MENTIONED IN

THE OLD TESTAMENT, BUT IT IS

IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.

IT WAS THE FEAST OF

DEDICATION IN JERUSALEM, AND

IT WAS WINTER, AND JESUS

WALKED IN THE TEMPLE.

CBN NEWS JOINED REBECCA

SPIRO AND HER FAMILY.

IT IS A HOLIDAY THAT

CELEBRATES OUR VICTORY

AGAINST DEPRESSION, AND OUR

ABILITY TO REDEDICATE THE

TEMPLE.

Reporter: AND HER

CHILDREN?

THE PRESENTS AND THE

PARTIES.

GROUPS COME AND GO ALL OF

THE TIME, AND WE DO GO ON

TRIPS, AND IT IS FUN.

Reporter: IN THE SECOND

CENTURY B.C., THE JEWISH

PEOPLE IN JUDEA REVOLTED

AGAINST THE SYRIAN

CONQUERORS.

THEY FORCED THE JEWS TO EAT

PORK, AND FORBIDDING SABBATH

OBSERVANCE AND TAR TORAH

READING AND CIRCUMCISION.

LED BY A PRIESTLEY FAMILY

KNOWN AS THE MACCABIS, THE

JEWISH PEOPLE REDEDICATED

THE TEMPLE.

BUT WHEN THEY WANTED TO

LIGHT THE MENORAH, THERE WAS

ONLY A LITTLE OIL LEFT.

IT WAS BEYOND NATURE, AND

THE MILITARY VICTORY.

Reporter: EATING FRIED

FOODS, LIKE POTATO PANCAKES

AND JELLY DOUGHNUTS, IS

ANOTHER HANUKKAH TRADITION.

AND SPIRO'S FAMILY AND

NEIGHBORS HAVE THEIR OWN

JEWISH TRADITION, TO BUILD A

COMMUNITY BETWEEN THE JEWISH

AND OTHERS.

WE GIVE OUT HOT DRINKS TO

ALL OF THE PEOPLE THAT

COME.

Reporter: SPIRO SAYS

THERE IS A MESSAGE IN THE

HOLIDAY FOR TODAY?

THE WORLD IS COMING UP

AGAINST ISRAEL, THE WOLVES

ARE CIRCLING THE SHEEPS --

THIS IS NOTHING NEW.

THE MESSAGE IS NO MATTER

WHAT HAPPENS, OUR CAMP WILL

BURN BRIGHT.

GENERATIONS HAVE COME AND

GONE, BUT OUR PEOPLE ARE

STILL HERE.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM'S OLD CITY.

Reporter: A AN ICONIC

NORMAN ROCKWELL PAINTING HAS

BEEN SOLD FOR $40 MILLION.

IT SHOWS A CROWDED

RESTAURANT WITH A

GRANDMOTHER AND GRANDSON

PRAYING AT A TABLE.

THE IMAGE FIRST A APPEARED

ON THE COVER OF THE SANTA

EVENING POST MAGAZINE'S

ISSUE IN 1961.

ANOTHER ROCKWELL PAINTING,

CALLED "THE GOSSIPS," SOLD

FOR $8 MILLION.

AND, FINALLY, THE MAN WHO

SURVIVED IN FREEZING WATER

AT THE BOTTOM OF THE

ATLANTIC WATER FOR THREE

DAYS SAYS HE OWES HIS LIFE

TO PRAYER.

HE IS THE LONE SURVIVOR OF A

12-MEMBER CREW OF AN

UP-ENDED TUGBOAT.

FOOTAGE OF HIS RESCUE WAS

POSTED ON LINE THIS WEEK.

OKENE FOUND AN AIR POCKET

AND SAYS HE WAS PRAYING TO

GOD THE WHOLE TIME.

HE PRAYED THE PRAYER OF

DELIVERANCE.

HE BELIEVES HIS RESCUE AFTER

MORE THAN 60 HOURS AT

100 FEET UNDER WATER IS A

SIGN OF DI DIVINE

DELIVERANCE.

PAT, IT IS A MIRACLE, IN

DEED.

Pat: IN THAT FREEZING

WATER -- I KNOW HE HAD BOXER

SHORTS ON, BUT, OH, MY.

Terry: AND THAT THEY

WOULD KNOW HE IS EVEN

THERE.

Pat: THEY WERE REACHING

DOWN, AND THEY MUST HAVE

THOUGHT HERE IS A DEAD BODY

REACHING OUT TO ME.

HE WAS SAYING THE PSALMS

OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

GOD LOOKS AFTER HIS PEOPLE.

THAT IS IMPORTANT.

Terry: COMING UP, WE'VE

ALL HAD AWKWARD

CONVERSATIONS WITH FAMILY

MEMBERS, BUT HOW ABOUT THIS

ONE:

AN ANTI-SEMITE LEARNS

FROM HIS GRANDMOTHER THAT HE

IS -- YOU GUESSED IT --

JEWISH.

HEAR HOW HE REACTED TO THAT

SHOCKING NEWS WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: TERRY, JUST

IMAGINE THAT YOU THOUGHT YOU

WERE NORWEGIAN.

AND YOU WAKE UP AND FIND,

REALLY YOU'RE SYRIAN.

OR ETHIOPIAN.

Terry: THE REALLY

SHOCKING PART IS IF I HATED

THEM.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

WHATEVER IT WAS, AND HERE I

AM, I AM ONE OF THEM.

THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT

HAPPENED TO THIS MAN IN

BUDAPEST.

WHAT A STORY.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY OF

THIS MAN'S CRISIS AND HIS

AMAZING TRANSFORMATION.

HERE IS DALE.

Reporter: HE WAS ONCE A

RISING STAR IN ONE OF

HUNGARY'S LARGEST AND MOST

CONTROVERSIAL POLITICAL

PARTIES.

UBIC.

HE HAS BEEN NAMED FASCIST.

AND STILL IN HIS 20s, HE

WAS IN A TRAJECTORY TO LEAD

THIS PARTY ONE DAY.

I JOINED UBIC IN 2003,

AND I WAS A MEMBER FOR NINE

YEARS.

I WAS VICE PRESIDENT FOR SIX

YEARS.

AND IN THE EUROPEAN

PARLIAMENT SINCE 2009.

Reporter: SEGETTI HAS

BRANDED AN ANTI-SEMITE, BUT

IN OUR INTERVIEW HE

DISAGREED.

WHEN I ENTERED UBIC, I

WAS KIND OF INDIFFERENT

TOWARDS JEWS.

I DIDN'T CARE ABOUT JEWS.

I DIDN'T CARE ABOUT THE

HOLOCAUST.

I DIDN'T CONSIDER THE

HOLOCAUST AS A TRAGEDY FOR

THE HUNGARIAN PEOPLE.

Reporter: STILL, HE WAS

A LEADER OF A PARTY ALMOST

UNIVERSALLY LABELLED

ANTI-SEMITIC.

AND HIS PUBLIC STATEMENTS

SHOWED AT THE VERY LEAST, HE

STILL DIDN'T LIKE JEWS AND

WAS SUSPICIOUS OF HIM.

BUT THAT ALL CHANGED WHEN HE

WOULD LEARN SOMETHING ABOUT

HIMSELF THAT TURNED HIS

WORLD UP SIDE DOWN.

SEGGETTI WAS A JEW.

RUMORS BEGAN SWIRLING ON THE

INTERNET THAT HE HAD JEWISH

ROOTS, SO HE WENT TO TALK TO

HIS 94-YEAR-OLD GRANDMOTHER,

WHO NEVER SAID SHE WAS

JEWISH.

AND HE OPENED UP AND SHE

TALKED ABOUT HER LIFE, AND

HOW SHE WAS SENT TO

AUSCHWITZ AND HOW HER WHOLE

FAMILY WAS ANNILHILATED.

Reporter: HOW DID THIS

CHANGE YOUR VIEW OF THE

HOLOCAUST?

I WAS SHOCKED, FIRST OF

ALL, BECAUSE I REALIZED THE

HOLOCAUST REALLY HAPPENED.

Reporter: NOT SURE WHAT

HE SHOULD DO NEXT, HE FIRST

TRIED TO HIDE HIS

JEWISHNESS, AND ACT LIKE

NOTHING COULD HAPPEN.

BUT HE EVENTUALLY REALIZED

HE COULD NOT STAY IN UBIC.

I REALIZED I CANNOT TAKE

PART IN

ANY ORGANIZATION

THAT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH

ANTI-SEMITISM.

AND AFTER MY JEWISH ORIGINS

WERE DISCLOSED, THEY REALLY

DIDN'T WANT TO SEE ME IN THE

PARTY.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

DO WHEN YOU DISCOVER YOU ARE

ONE OF THE VERY THINGS THAT

YOU HATED.

FOR SEGETTI, YOU CHANGE.

HE CONTACTED A LOCAL RABBI,

WHO FIRST THOUGHT IT WAS A

JOKE.

WHEN WE MET FIRST, I HAD

MIXED FEELINGS BECAUSE ON

THE ONE HAND, I WAS SITTING

ACROSS SOMEBODY THAT WAS

SEEN FOR YEARS AS ONE OF THE

MAIN FIGURES OF THE UBIC

PARTY.

ON THE OTHER HAND, I WAS

SITTING ACROSS A BROKEN

PERSON WHO HAS REALIZED WHAT

HE HAS DONE, AND WHO HAS

COME TO A SITUATION WHERE HE

FIGURED HE HAS TO CHANGE,

BUT HE STILL DOESN'T KNOW

HOW TO CHANGE.

Reporter: HE STARTED

ATTENDING SYNAGOGUE, AND

ADMITS AT FIRST SOME MEMBERS

TREATED HIM LIKE A LEPER.

IT IS INTERESTING TO SEE

HOW OTHER PEOPLE LOOK AT

IT.

ON THE ONE HAND THEY TOOK A

STEP BACK AND WERE

SHOCKEDMENT.

Reporter SHOCKED.

Reporter: AND THEY

WOULD LITERALLY LEAVE THE

SYNAGOGUE WHEN HE WALKED

IN.

BUT SOME BEFRIENDED HIM, AND

HE STARTED TAKING CLASSES AT

THE SYNAGOGUE, LEARNING

HEBREW AND THE MEANING OF

SABBAT.

THE CHANGES IN MY LIFE

ARE STILL HAPPENING.

IT IS LIKE BEING REBORN.

I HAD HAD THIS VALUE SYSTEM

UNTIL I WAS 30, AND I HAD TO

ADMIT THAT IT WAS ALL WRONG

AND HAD TO FIND THE WILL TO

CHANGE.

Reporter: HE ALSO

BECAME A POLITICIAN WITHOUT

A PARTY, BUT HAS CONTINUED

TO SERVE IN THE EUROPEAN

PARLIAMENT AS AN

INDEPENDENT.

AS A POLITICIAN, I NOW

WANT TO DEFEND HUMAN RIGHTS

FOR EVERYONE.

I AM AWARE OF MY

RESPONSIBILITY, AND I KNOW I

WILL HAVE TO MAKE IT RIGHT

IN THE FUTURE.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

HIGH POINTS OF HIS NEW LIFE

WAS TRAVELLING THIS YEAR TO

ISRAEL WITH HIS WIFE AND

VISITING THE HOLOCAUST

MUSEUM AND THE WAILING

WALL.

WHEN I LANDED IN ISRAEL,

AIRPORT SECURITY ASKED ME A

LOT OF QUESTIONS.

AND WHEN THE GUARD ASKED ME

ARE YOU A JEW, THEN FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE I

COULD SAY YES.

Reporter: WHAT HAS IT

BEEN LIKE LEARNING HOW TO BE

JEWISH?

JUST TO FEEL LIKE YOU'RE

ON THE RIGHT WAY

SPIRITUALLY, AND YOU CAN GET

CLOSER TO GOD, IT'S A WHOLE

NEW FEELING FOR ME THAT I'M

DOING THE RIGHT THING.

MY LIFE HAS BEEN FULL OF

INCREDIBLE MIRACLES, BUT I

BELIEVE EVERYONE WHO CHOOSES

THE WAY OF GOD SEES

MIRACLES.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS IN BUDAPEST,

HUNGARY.

Pat: WHAT A WONDERFUL

STORY.

IT IS JUST LIKE MOSES.

MOSES WAS RAISED IN

PHARAOH'S HOUSEHOLD, THE SON

OF PHARAOH'S DAUGHTER.

AND SUDDENLY HE REALIZES

THAT AMRAM AND YACKABED ARE

HIS PARENTS.

SO HE CHANGES AND ULTIMATELY

LEADS THE JEWISH.

Terry: IT WOULD MAKE A

GREAT MOVIE.

COMING UP, A WOMAN WHO

ENDURED SORE THROAT SEASON

FOR THREE YEARS.

FIND OUT HOW SHE BEAT THE

DISEASE ONCE AND FOR ALL

WHEN WE COME BACK.

PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS, SO DON'T GO AWAY.

*

*

Pat: CAN YOU BELIEVE IT

IS LESS THAN THREE WEEKS TO

CHRISTMAS.

WHAT HAPPENED TO

THANKSGIVING?

DID THEY DO AWAY WITH

THANKSGIVING?

Terry: THAT'S WHAT I

SAID AFTER I COOKED THAT

MEAL AND IT WAS GONE IN 15

MINUTES.

Pat: YOU TURN THE PAGE,

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT IS

SANTA CLAUS.

I GOTCHA.

WE'VE GOT A HAPPY STORY FOR

YOU TODAY.

THREE YEARS MILLIE LIVED IN

PAIN.

WITH EVERY SIP, EVERY BITE,

SHE HAD TO ENDURE AGONY ALL

OVER AGAIN.

BUT THAT'S NO LONGER THE

CASE, AND HERE'S WHY.

WHAT I HAD HERE IN MY

THROAT, IT WOULD HURT WHEN I

WAS SWALLOWING.

IT WAS ALMOST LIKE YOU HAD A

BOWL LIKE THIS, AND YOU'RE

TRYING TO PASS YOUR FOOD OR

YOUR LIQUID, AND YOU COULD

FEEL THE PAIN.

THERE WAS A POINT WHEN I

WOULD COUGH SOMETIMES,

UNABLE TO REALLY EAT.

Reporter: MILLIE ESTES

HAD SUFFERED WITH THIS PAIN

FOR QUITE SOME TIME, AND

KNEW THE PROBLEM WASN'T HER

TONSILS BECAUSE THEY WERE

TAKEN OUT THE YEAR BEFORE.

ALL I COULD DO WAS SEEK

THE LORD, AND PRAY THAT HE

WOULD HEAL ME.

Reporter: ONE MORNING

MILLIE WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

THE TIME THEY WERE DOING

THE PRAYER, TERRY MEEUWSEN,

SHE HAD A WORD.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE A VERY SORE

THROAT.

IT IS NOT TONSILS.

YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE

TONSILS.

BUT YOU HAVE A SWELLING, AND

IT IS VERY, VERY PAINFUL.

GOD IS HEALING WHATEVER THE

CAUSE OF THAT IS.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, WHEN

SHE SPOKE THE WORD, SHE

DESCRIBED EXACTLY WHAT I

HAD.

AND I ALL THAT I CAN SAY TO

YOU IS THAT I STOOD UP, OUT

OF THE SOFA, AND I RECEIVED

THE WORD OF GOD.

AND I STARTED RAISING MY

HANDS, AND I SAID THAN,

THANK YOU, LORD!

THANK YOU, LORD.

IT IS LIKE SOMEBODY WAS

TOUCHING INSIDE AND IT WENT

OUT.

IT WAS NO LONGER THERE.

I STARTED EATING AND

DRINKING WATER.

I COULD JUST SENSE THERE WAS

NOTHING THERE STOPPING IT.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE A PLUG WAS

COMPLETELY GONE, AND I WAS

ABLE TO JUST DRINK AND EAT

NORMALLY.

NOW, YOU KNOW, THE

DIFFERENCE IS IT IS LIKE A

CLEAN PIPE.

THERE IS NOTHING THERE.

IT IS JUST CLEAN.

I CANNOT EXPLAIN TO YOU

ANYMORE.

AND I THANK YOU, LORD.

GOD IS TRUE AND HIS WORD IS

TRUE.

DO NOT DISPAIR BECAUSE

DISPAIR WILL NOT BRING US

THE ANSWER.

BUT IF YOU LOOK UNTO JESUS,

THE HEALER, THE JEHOVAH, YOU

WILL SEE THAT HE WILL HEAL

YOU.

Pat: THAT IS SO

FABULOUS.

YOU DIDN'T KNOW THAT WOMAN.

Terry: I STILL DON'T

KNOW HER.

BUT WHAT IS SO AMAZING IS

WHEN GOD SO SPECIFICALLY

SAYS SOMETHING.

I CAN REMEMBER, AND I'M SURE

THIS HAPPENS TO YOU, TOO,

THERE BE TIMES WHEN YOU FEEL

LIKE YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO SAY

SOMETHING, AND YOU SAY, THIS

DOESN'T EVEN MAKE SENSE, BUT

I'M GOING WITH IT.

AND THEN SOMEONE COMES

FORWARD AND SAYS, THAT WAS

ME.

Pat: AFTER THREE YEARS,

THINK OF THAT.

I THANK GOD FOR IT.

COMING UP ON CHRISTMAS, THIS

PRETTY THING IS GOING TO BE

IN THE MAIL, IF IT IS NOT

ALREADY IN THE MAIL TO YOU.

A PRETTY NF ENVELOPE.

AND INSIDE THE PRETTY

ENVELOPE AND THESE THINGS.

AND THEY'RE REALLY NICE.

Terry: VERY PRETTY.

DO YOU PUNCH THEM OUT?

Pat: I'M NOT GOOD AT

CUT-OUTS.

YESTERDAY I TRIED TO OPEN A

CAN -- I'M PRETTY GOOD AT

OPENING A CAN.

I WANTED TO EAT SOME

TUNAFISH FOR LUNCH, AND IT

WAS A LITTLE, TEENY CAN, AND

I COULDN'T GET IT OPEN.

MY WIFE SAID -- I THOUGHT I

MISUNDERSTOOD HERE, I

THOUGHT SHE SAID I'M GOING

TO CALL CBN AND GET A

MECHANIC.

SHE SAID YOU'RE TRYING TO

OPEN THE BOTTOM.

YOU TURN IT OPEN, AND IT

WILL OPEN VERY NICELY.

Terry: IT'S GOOD TO

HAVE A WIFE.

Pat: GOOD TO HAVE A

WIFE.

I'M NOT A GREAT MECHANIC.

Terry: THESE POP OUT

EASILY.

Pat: THANK GOODNESS.

THEY POP OUT, LIKE HERE.

BING, BING, BING.

AND THERE IS A LITTLE HOLE

IN HERE WHERE YOU CAN PUT A

THREAD AND HANG IT ON YOUR

CHRISTMAS TREE.

BUT BEHIND IT, YOU CAN WRITE

DOWN PRAYER REQUESTS, AND

PEOPLE HAVE DONE THAT.

AND THEY HAVE SENT THESE

BACK TO US.

THERE IS ONE FOR YOU AND ONE

TO SEND BACK.

AND THIS SAYS THAT SOMEBODY

NEEDS TO HAVE HEALING OF

KIDNEYS AND LUNGS.

SO THEY CAN SEND BACK THEIR

PRAYER REQUESTS.

AND WE HAVE A TREE HERE WE

CAN HANG THESE THINGS ON.

AREN'T THEY PRETTY?

Terry: THEY ARE

PRETTY.

AND WE REALLY DO PRAY OVER

THESE WHEN THEY COME BACK.

Pat: YOU CAN WRITE DOWN

A PRAYER FOR US, AND KEEP

ONE FOR YOUR TREE.

YOU WON'T NEED A MECHANIC.

Terry: EXACTLY.

YOU SAW IT HERE.

Pat: WILL IT OPEN AS

WELL AS A CAN OF TUNAFISH?

I DON'T KNOW.

Terry: LOTS OF PRAYERS

NEEDED FOR HEALING.

THIS PERSON WAS IN A CAR

WRECK AND ALL OF THEIR

FACIAL BONES WERE BROKEN.

AND THIS ONE SAYS WE NEED

STRENGTH BECAUSE THEY LOST

GRANDMA.

AND ONE SAYING, WE NEED

FINANCES TO PAY MY MOM'S

NURSING HOME.

Pat: LET'S PRAY.

PAIN AND SUFFERING DO NOT

TAKE A HOLIDAY FOR

CHRISTMAS.

THEY REALLY DON'T.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, THERE

MAY BE MORE SUFFERING AND

MORE SUICIDE DURING THE

HOLIDAYS.

BECAUSE EVERYBODY HAS THIS

HYPE GOING ON THAT YOU'VE

GOT TO BE HAPPY, AND DECK

THE HALLS, AND HERE YOU ARE

LIVING BY YOURSELF AND

YOU'RE LOVED ONES ARE DEAD,

AND YOU'RE ALL ALONE, AND

YOU HAVE DISPAIR.

WOULD YOU PLEASE JOIN --

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER, AND

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD

TOGETHER AT THIS MOMENT.

FATHER, IN JESUS' NAME, WE

ASK FOR THE ANOINTING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT TO COME INTO

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

MAY THE POWER OF GOD TOUCH

PEOPLE RIGHT NOW.

LET THE GLORY OF THE LORD

TOUCH THEM.

WILL IS SOMEBODY RIGHT NOW,

AND YOU'RE COUGHING, AND

WHEN YOU COUGH, THERE IS

BLOOD.

IT IS NOT TUBERCULOSIS.

YOU'VE BEEN AFRAID YOU'VE

GOT T.B., BUT YOU DON'T

HAVE.

BUT GOD IS REACHING DOWN AND

YOU'LL FEEL FIRE IN YOUR

LINGS AND YOU'RE HEALED.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE A CONDITION

WITH YOUR EYES.

IT IS NOT GLAUCOMA, BUT YOU

HAVE THIS KIND OF SMOKINESS

IN YOUR VISION.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

YOUR EYES WILL WATER A BIT

AND IT WILL BE GONE.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE

SHINGLES AND YOU CAN'T SEEM

TO GET RID OF IT.

GOD AND HEALING YOU AND

TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: A NECK MUSCLE,

IT'S LIKE ON FIRE.

IF YOU TOUCH IT, IT'S LIKE

ON FIVE.

REACH YOUR HAND AND TOUCH

THAT PLACE IN YOUR NECK THAT

IS MAYBE SWELLED A BIT, AND

GOD IS HEALING IT RIGHT

NOW.

AND WE HOLD BEFORE YOU,

LORD, THESE REQUESTS THAT

HAVE BEEN WRITTEN IN.

AND WE PRAY A TOUCH FROM

GOD, A FINANCIAL MIRACLE.

A BLESSING OF GOD.

LET THE JOE OF THE LORD

JESUS CHRIST AND THE DAY OF

HIS BIRTH BE PRESENT IN

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

IN JESUS' NAME WE ASK IT.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: AND AMEN.

CALL IF WE CAN HELP YOU.

YEAR HERE ON THE PHONES

NIGHT AND DAY.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

I MIGHT ADD, REMEMBER THOSE

THINGS.

YOU CAN CUT THEM OUT, AND IT

DOESN'T TAKE A MECHANIC.

Terry: AND THAT'S GOOD

NEWS.

Pat: GUARANTEED.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP,

THEY'VE BEEN CALLED

AUSTRALIA'S ANSWER TO

COLDPLAY, AND THEY JUST

POCKETED THE AWARD FOR BEST

NEW ARTIST.

*

* THE NEWBORN KING

*

FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE,

I'M GOING TO HAVE TO LIVE

WITH THIS CONDITION.

THEY WERE STARTED TO PRAY

FOR PEOPLE, AND I THOUGHT,

THAT WOULD BE REALLY COOL IF

THAT HAPPENED TO ME.

BUT NO WAY.

THIS SHOW IS TOO BIG.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE

WATCHING.

AND THEY STARTED TALKING

ABOUT HOW THERE IS SOMEONE

OUT THERE WITH A FOOT

PROBLEM.

Terry: YOU HAVE A

CONDITION WITH THE ARCHES OF

YOUR FEET.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

PUT ONE FOOT ON THE

GROUND, AND THEN THE OTHER,

AND NO PAIN, NOTHING.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

PRAYER WILL STAY IN A SOUTH

CAROLINA COUNTY FOR NOW.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS RULED

THAT GREENEVILLE COUNTY

SCHOOLS CAN CONTINUE TO

ALLOW STUDENT-LED PRAYER AND

HOLD SCHOOL EVENTS IN PLACES

OF WORSHIP WHILE A LAWSUIT

OVER THE ISSUE CONTINUES.

THE AMERICAN HUMANIST

ASSOCIATION FILED SUIT

EARLIER THIS YEAR AGAINST

THE COUNTY, SEEKING TO

PREVENT FUTURE EVENTS IN

RELIGIOUS VENUES.

THE SUIT SAYS THE STUDENT

WAS OFFENDED AND DISTRESSED

WHEN MOUNTAINVIEW HELD THE

CEREMONY AT A CHAPEL.

EGYPT'S CONVERT TO ISLAM HAS

BEEN ARRESTED BY NATIONAL

SECURITY FORCES.

MOHAMMED AGASI HAD FOUGHT

PUBLICLY TO TRY TO CHANGE

HIS RELIGION ON HIS I.D.

CARD.

HE AND HIS FAMILY WERE

RUNNING FOR THEIR LIVES

Terry: WONDERFUL.

GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

WONDERFUL TO BE WITH

YOU.

Terry: IT IS LUKE AND

JOEL?

YOU GOT IT.

Terry: YOU ARE THE

FRONT MEN FOR THIS AMAZING

BAND.

I TELL YOU, NOBODY SLEEPS

DURING YOUR PERFORMANCE.

THAT'S WHY WE HAVE

DRUMS.

Terry: THIS IS A SMALL

TASTE OF WHAT YOU DO, WHAT

"FOR KING AND COUNTRY DOES."

TELL US ABOUT THE NAME.

WE CAME UP WITH AWFUL

BAND NAMES.

HE CAME UP WITH ZERO.

ULTIMATELY, WE WERE IN THE

STUDIO WORKING ON OUR DEBUT

RECORD, "CRAVE," JUST A FEW

YEARS AGO.

IT WAS A MOMENT IN THE

STUDIO WHERE WE CAME UP WITH

THE NAME "FOR KING AND

COUNTRY."

THAT NAME, THAT PHRASE,

DERIVES FROM AN OLD ENGLISH

BATTLE CRY.

SOLDIERS WERE GOING TO STAND

FOR SOMETHING GREATER THAN

THEMSELVES, AND THEY WOULD

CHANT "FOR KING AND

COUNTRY."

WE THOUGHT AS YOUNG MEN AND

MUSICIANS, WHAT BETTER NAME

TO BE KNOWN BY.

Terry: I AGREE.

LAST YEAR YOU REALLY STARTED

TAKING OFF.

AND YOU WERE, AT SOME POINT,

FIGHTING FOR ER YOUR LIFE.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT.

I HAD A DIGESTIVE

DISORDER, AND I STILL HAVE

IT, BUT I GOT DOWN TO

125 POUNDS.

I HAD TO COME OFF THE ROAD

FOR ABOUT TWO AND A HALF

MONTHS.

AND SOME PEOPLE ASK ME, YOU

PROBABLY DON'T WANT TO GO

THROUGH ANYTHING LIKE THAT

AGAIN.

AND I SAY, I DON'T WANT TO

GO THROUGH THE PAIN.

BUT IT IS INTERESTING, WHEN

YOU BE STILL, AMAZING THINGS

CAN HAPPEN.

BUT IT IS GOOD TO BE BACK.

Terry: I WAS GOING TO

SAY, PRAY FOR HIM.

YES, PLEASE.

Terry: WE MENTIONED

YOUR SISTER, REBECCA ST.

JAME'S, HAS BEEN ON THE SHOW

WITH US MANY TIMES.

WE'VE LOVED HER MUSIC FOR

YEARS.

SHE DOES A LOT OF

MINISTERING TO WOMEN.

WHAT'S YOUR HEART?

WE GREW UP WITH SEVEN

KIDS, AND REBECCA IS OUR

OLDEST SIBLING.

WE COME FROM A GREAT HOME OF

GOD-FEARING PARENTS.

AS WE STARTED THE BAND, ONE

OF THE THINGS THAT IS SORT

OF A MANTRA FOR US, AS A

GROUP, WE SAY, FIRST OF ALL

TO ALL LADIES, DON'T LET ANY

MAN DISRESPECT YOU IN

RELATIONSHIPS, AND DON'T

EVER SETTLE FOR SECOND

BEST.

SO MANY IN SOCIETY THINK

WOMEN ARE CHEAP.

WE WEAR THESE NECKLACES AND

WE HAVE THE WORD "PRICELESS"

IN IT.

AND WOMEN ARE WORTH MORE

THAN ALL OF THE MONEY IN THE

WORLD.

AND WE SAY TO MEN, IT IS

TIME -- I GOT MARRIED JUST

UNDER FIVE MONTHS AGO.

AND LUKE HAS BEEN MARRIED

FOR THREE YEARS.

IT IS TIME FOR US TO STEP

OUT AND WE NEED TO TREAT

THESE LADIES WITH RESPECT

AND HONOR.

CHIVALRY IS NOT DEAD.

Terry: INDEED.

WE'RE HERE.

IT IS CHRISTMASTIME, AND

WE'RE SURRENDERED BY

POINTSETTIAS --

AND IT'S FREEZING IN

HERE.

Terry: WHAT IS SO

SPECIAL ABOUT THE HOLIDAY TO

YOU?

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE

TRADITIONS THAT ARE

IMPORTANT TO YOU?

I ACTUALLY HAVE AN

11-MONTH-OLD BABY, AND HE

TURNS 1 RIGHT BEFORE

CHRISTMAS.

MY WIFE AND I ARE TALKING

ABOUT TRADITIONS.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE WOULD

HAVE ARE THESE SANTA BAGS.

AND SANTA WOULD PUT THEM AT

THE END OF THE BED.

AND WE'RE GOING TO DO THAT,

EVEN THOUGH HE IS ONLY ONE.

BUT I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS

YOUNG, IT WAS 3:00 IN THE

MORNING, AND I WAS CHECKING

TO MAKE SURE THAT SANTA HAD

DONE HIS JOB.

AND I CHRISTMAS DAY, WE READ

THE CHRISTMAS STORY.

Terry: THAT'S

WONDERFUL.

YOU GUYS COME FROM A

REMARKABLE FAMILY.

I WANT TO KNOW ONE THING:

DOES EVERYBODY IN YOUR

FAMILY HAVE TO SING TO

BELONG?

YES -- I'M JUST KIDDING.

Terry: THERE YOU ARE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

LUKE, AND JOEL, FOR BEING

WITH US.

THE ALBUM IS CALLED "INTO

THE SILENT NIGHT."

AND NOW "FOR KING AND

COUNTRY," YOU'RE GOING TO

PLAY US INTO THE BREAK.

A RE-IMAGINED "DRUMMER

BOY."

Terry: THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

"KINFOR KING AND COUNTRY."

*

* PA RA, ROMPA, PA, POM *

* I'LL PRAY MY DRUM FOR YOU,

PA, ROM, PA, PA, POM *

I PLAY MY DRUM FOR YOU *

* THEN HE SMILED AT ME

* PA, ROM, PA, PA, PA,

POM *

* ME AND MY DRUM

UP NEXT, OUR CHATROOM IS

OPEN AND WE WANT TO HEAR

FROM YOU.

WE'LL BRING IT ONLINE WITH

YOUR QUESTIONS.

SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Terry: MANY OF YOU SENT

IN E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PAT, THE FIRST ONE IS FROM

DIANE WHO SAYS, "MY HUSBAND

BELIEVES THE END TIMES ARE

COMING.

HE BELIEVES IT IS RIGHT

AROUND THE CORNER.

SO HE IS STOCKING UP FOR

WHEN THAT DAY COMES.

I KEEP TELLING HIM IT IS NOT

NECESSARY.

I SAY THAT GOD PROVIDED FOR

HIS CHILDREN WHEN THEY WERE

WANDERING WHEN THEY LEFT

EGYPT, AND I BELIEVE HE WILL

DO THE SAME FOR US.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: I REALLY THINK

SO.

LISTEN, IT DOESN'T HURT TO

HAVE A SUPPLY OF WATER ON

HAND.

IT DOESN'T HURT TO HAVE SOME

BATTERIES OR A

BATTERY-POWERED RADIO.

IT DOESN'T HURT TO HAVE SOME

BASIC SURVIVAL STUFF BECAUSE

THE END DOESN'T HAVE TO

COMECOME TO LET YOUR

ELECTRIC POWER BE SHUT.

IF WE HAVE A SOLAR PULSE, IT

WILL FRY THE GRID, THE

ELECTRIC GRID, ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY.

AND IF WE'RE OUT OF

ELECTRICITY --

Terry: WE CAN'T EVEN

IMAGINE THAT.

REALLY.

IT WOULD BE DEVASTATING.

Pat: I MEAN, I'VE GOT A

PLACE WHERE WE HAVE A

GENERATOR, WITH BACKUP GAS.

AND WE COOK WITH GAS.

AND, YOU KNOW, YOU'VE GOT A

TANK OF PROPANE SITTING

AROUND.

AND THAT'S NOT BAD.

BUT, HEY, IN CHICAGO, NEW

YORK, PHILADELPHIA, HOW ARE

PEOPLE GOING TO SUPPLY ALL

OF THAT STUFF?

HOW ARE THEY GOING TO HAVE

GARDENS AND ALL OF THAT

STUFF?

IT CAN'T HAPPEN.

THESE SURVIVALISTS, IT IS

NICE TO THINK IN A CORNER OF

UTAH YOU CAN YOUR LITTLE

PART OF THE KINGDOM.

BUT WHAT ABOUT LOS ANGELES?

WHAT ABOUT SAN FRANCISCO?

IF SOME OF THESE THINGS

HAPPEN, THE DEVASTATION WILL

BE IN THE HUNDREDS OF

MILLIONS DEAD.

ANYHOW, DON'T GET ME INTO

THAT.

Terry: YEAH.

Pat: MODEST BATTERIES,

FIRST-AID, CANDLES, AND SOME

DRIED FOOD.

NOT TOO BAD TO HAVE THAT ON

HAND.

Terry: THIS IS MELANIE

WHO SAYS, "WHAT IS GOD'S

VIEW ON DIVORCE?

ALL OF MY MARRIAGES FAILED.

I TRIED REALLY HARD TO MAKE

THEM WORK, BUT THE LAST

HUSBAND WOULDN'T WORK OR PAY

THE BILLS, AND THE GUY

BEFORE HIM WAS AN

ALCOHOLIC.

WILL I GO TO HELL IF I MARRY

AGAIN?

WILL I BE CLASSIFIED AS AN

ADULTERESS?"

Pat: THERE WAS A WOMAN

THAT JESUS MET AT THE WELL.

AND HE SAID GO CALL YOUR

HUSBAND.

AND SHE SAID I DON'T HAVE A

HUSBAND.

AND HE SAID, YOU'VE SPOKEN

RIGHT.

YOU'VE HAD FIVE HUSBANDS AND

THAT GUY IS NOT YOUR

HUSBAND.

SO HE DIDN'T CONDEMN HER.

IN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION,

YOU HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM.

AND I DON'T THINK MARRIAGE

IS FOR YOU.

YOU HAVE PICKED A SELECTION

OF LOSERS.

THERE IS SOMETHING IN YOUR

CHARACTER THAT DRAWS YOU TO

THESE MEN WHO ARE INDIGENT

OR ABUSIVE.

YOU DON'T NEED TO GET

MARRIED AGAIN.

ARE YOU GOING TO GO TO HELL,

NO, BUT YOU'RE MAKING YOU'RE

OWN HELL HERE ON EARTH.

I DON'T THINK YOU'RE

MARRIAGE MATERIAL.

AND WHAT ABOUT THE REASONS

FOR THESE MARRIAGES TO BE

BROKEN UP.

YOU DIDN'T TELL ME ANY OF

THAT.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT WAS

ADULTERY, UNFAITHFULNESS,

ABUSE -- THERE ARE SO MANY

THINGS THAT GO ON.

BUT JUST FOR NOW, FORGET

MARRIAGE AND WORK OUT A LIFE

FOR YOURSELF.

Terry: GET CLOSE TO THE

LORD.

THIS IS HEIDI WHO SAYS, "I

HAVE PRAYED FOR A NEW HEART

AND A NEW MIND, AND I

BELIEVE GOD HAS ANSWERED MY

PRAYER.

I TRY TO KEEP A PURE MIND.

WHEN I STRAY, I TAKE EVERY

THOUGHT CAPTIVE LIKE THE

BIBLE COMMANDS, BUT WHEN I

SLEEP, I'VE HAD SOME DREAMS

WHERE I HAVE DONE THINGS I

KNOW ARE WRONG.

WHY WON'T THESE DREAMS GO

AWAY?

COULD IT BE A SPIRITUAL

ATTACK?

AM I SINNING IN MY SLEEP?

HOW CAN I GET BETTER?"

PatLET THE WORDS IN MY

MOUTH AND IN MY HEART BE

ACCEPTABLE TO GOD.

LOOK, I'VE SAID ON THIS

PROGRAM, AND I'LL SAY IT

AGAIN AND AGAIN.

WE ARE ANIMALS.

WE HAVE SEXUAL DESIRES LIKE

ANIMALS.

WE HAVE STUFF IN OUR PAST

THAT IS FED BY THE CULTURE

IN WHICH WE LIVE.

AND IF YOU HAVE ABSORBED

THAT -- ALL YOU'VE GOT TO DO

IS WATCH TELEVISION, WATCH

CABLE, WATCH ADVERTISING,

WATCH ALL OF THAT STUFF,

THEN GO TO SLEEP, AND SOME

OF IT WILL COME BACK.

IF YOU SPEND YOUR EVENING

BEFORE YOU GO TO BED,

READING THE WORD, PRAYING

UNTO THE LORD, LET THE WORDS

IN MY MOUTH AND THE

MEDITATION IN MY HEART BE

ACCEPTABLE TO THY SIGHT.

NO, YOU'RE NOT SINNING.

YOU'RE A SINNER, AND WE'RE

ALL SINNER.

GOD UNDERSTANDS THAT.

BUT WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS

FOCUS YOUR MIND ON HIM.

MY HEART IS STAYED ON THEE,

O LORD.

Terry: SHE SAYS, "I

PRAYED TO BE HEALED IN AN

ILLNESS BUT NOTHING

HAPPENED.

DO I NEED TO PRAY

CONTINUOUSLY TO GET A

MIRACLE?"

Pat: THAT'S WHAT JESUS

TOLD IN THE STORY.

THE WIDOW WENT TO THE UNJUST

JUDGE, AND BECAUSE OF HER IM

POPORTUNITY SHE GOT AN

ANSWER.

HE SAYS KEEP ON SEEKING,

KEEP ON KNOCKING.

IT'S CONTINUOUS ACTION UNTIL

YOU GET AN ANSWER.

SO --

Terry: YES.

THAT'S THE SHORT ANSWER.

Pat: THE SHORT ANSWER.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: I GOT THE MESSAGE

HERE.

GO AHEAD.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: WE THANK YOU FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS.

WE REALLY DO APPRECIATE

HEARING FROM YOU.

WELL, YOU KNOW IN PARTS OF

NIGERIA, LOOKING FOR WATER

IS A JOB THAT NEVER ENDS.

AND FOR THE WOMEN IN ONE

VILLAGE, GETTING WATER MEANT

SPENDING THE NIGHT IN A

RIVERBED.

Reporter: AS THE SUN

BEATS DOWN ON NORTHERN

NIGERIA, FAMILIES SPEND THE

ANYONE TIRENTIRE DAME

FARMING.

SHE AND HER CHILDREN WORK

LONG, HARD HOURS WITHOUT A

DRINK.

WE GET BACK HOME, AND THE

CHILDREN WILL BE SO THIRSTY,

THEY WOULD CRY.

I CRIED, TOO, BECAUSE WE HAD

NO WATER.

Reporter: TO GET WATER,

HAWELL WALKED MORE THAN A

MILE TO A DRY RIVERBED.

SHE DUG A HOLE AND AS THE

WATER SEEPED IN, IT WAS

BROWN AND MUDDY, BUT IT IS

ALL SHE HAD.

MANY DAYS I SLEPT AT THE

RIVERBED WITH MY BABY

BECAUSE WE HAD TO WAIT A

LONG TIME FOR THE WATER.

IF OTHER WOMEN CAME WHO WERE

STRONGER THAN ME, THEY WOULD

TAKE THE WATER AND WE WOULD

HAVE TO WAIT AGAIN.

WE SUFFERED INSECT BITES AND

INFECTIONS.

Reporter: IN THIS

VILLAGE, EVERY FAMILY FACED

THE SAME STRUGGLE.

THEY BARELY HAD ENOUGH WATER

TO COOK OR BATHE.

SO THE CHILDREN WERE

CONSTANTLY SICK.

WHEN HAWELL'S BROTHER, Aú

PASTOR, CAME TO VISIT, SHE

TALKED TO HIM ABOUT THE

VILLAGE'S DESPERATE NEED FOR

WATER.

HER BROTHER WAS A MISSIONARY

WHO PARTNERED WITH CBN, AND

HE KNEW WE COULD HELP.

BEFORE LONG, THERE WAS A

BRAND NEW WELL, RIGHT IN THE

CENTER OF THE VILLAGE.

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER,

EVERYONE HAD FRESH, CLEAN

DRINKING WATER.

WE ASKED FOR HELP, AND

THE HELP CAME.

NOW WE HAVE WATER.

WE CAN DRINK, COOK, AND KEEP

OUR CHILDREN CLEAN AND

HEALTHY.

THIS IS NO SMALL GIFT FROM

YOU.

YOU HAVE CHANGED ALL OF OUR

LIVES AND SAVED OUR

CHILDREN.

CBN, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: YOU JUST CANNOT

IMAGINE WHAT A BLESSING IT

IS TO HAVE WATER AVAILABLE

ON A DAILY, REGULAR BASIS.

AND THIS IS JUST ONE PLACE.

YOU KNOW, MOST OF THE WORLD

CRAVES THE PRESENCE OF

WATER.

Pat: I WAS THINKING

TODAY, YOU KNOW, I WAS

COOKING A COUPLE OF EGGS FOR

BREAKFAST.

AND I FILLED UP A PAN WITH

WATER, PUT IT ON THE STOVE,

TURNED IT ON, PUT THE EGGS

IN.

Terry: AND DON'T EVEN

THINK ABOUT IT.

Pat: YEAH.

IT IS THERE, AND YOU THINK,

HEY -- BUT THIS IS A

BLESSING WE HAVE LIVING IN

THIS COUNTRY, AND MANY OF

THE ADVANCED COUNTRIES.

BUT TO THINK $1,000 DRILLS A

WELL IN A VILLAGE, AND THESE

PEOPLE CAN HAVE FRESH

WATER.

$1,000, THAT'S ALL IT

TAKES.

Terry: AND THAT'S JUST

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT "700

CLUB" MEMBERS ARE DOING

AROUND THE WORLD.

I WANT TO INVITE YOU TO GO

MOST OF ALL, I WANT TO
