Watch the 700 Club Canada for Dec.30, 2013 Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER-

THOMPSON. WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

LAURA LYNN, WHAT IS THE LONGEST

TRIP YOU'VE EVER TAKEN?

WELL, PROBABLY ON THE WAY TO

THE DENTIST WHEN I WAS GETTING

A ROOT CANAL. THAT JUST SEEMED

TO TAKE FOREVER AND IT WAS VERY

PAINFUL. IF YOU'RE TALKING

ABOUT DISTANCE WISE, I WOULD

SAY.

I THINK WE WERE TALKING

DISTANCE.

OH, OKAY. THEN, I WOULD SAY

THAT IT WOULD BE TO AFRICA.

OKAY.

THROUGH AMSTERDAM. HOW ABOUT

YOU?

WELL, YOU KNOW, ABU DHABI,

JENAI, I SPENT A LOT OF TIME

CHENNAI, SOUTHERN TIP OF INDIA.

AND I THINK THAT WOULD PROBABLY

DO IT. YOU KNOW, EVERY TIME I

GO TO ISRAEL, I GO AND I THINK

IT WOULD BE, BUT MAYBE TO THE

DENTIST, IT'S NOT QUITE AS LONG

AS GOING TO THE DENTIST.

IT'S LONG AND EVEN JUST

SITTING THERE WHILE IT'S

HAPPENING IS A LONG JOURNEY.

LIKE THE DRILL.

OH, YEAH.

YEAH, YOU LIKE THAT.

I DON'T LIKE IT.

NO?

NO, NO.

NO? OK. ON TODAY'S SHOW,

WE'RE GOING TO MEET A FEW

PEOPLE WHOSE LIVES HAVE BEEN

FULL OF ONE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY

AFTER ANOTHER.

ARVID LOEWEN DOESN'T SLOW

DOWN. THE LONG DISTANCE CYCLING

GRANDPA EXPLAINS WHY HE CHOSE

TO ENTER ONE OF THE MOST

GRUELING RACES IN THE ENTIRE

WORLD.

ALSO, JOEL GORDON AND BEN

PORTER SHARE HOW THEIR UNLIKELY

FRIENDSHIP LED TO GOD USING

THEM TO REACH A GENERATION.

AND WE SAT DOWN WITH PAT

ROBERTSON TO DISCUSS THE EARLY

DAYS OF HIS INCREDIBLE LIFE OF

FAITH AND HOW CANADA PLAYED A

ROLE EARLY IN HIS RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD. THIS IS OUR INTERVIEW

WITH PAT ROBERTSON FROM THE SET

OF THE US 700 CLUB.

[MUSIC]

WELCOME. WE'VE TO A LIVING

BREATHING TESTIMONY OF WHAT AN

APOSTLE LOOKS LIKE IN THIS 21ST

CENTURY CANADIAN SOCIETY. OVER

500 MILLION SOULS SAVED IN OVER

50 YEARS OF MINISTRY. WE HAVE

THE HONORABLE REVEREND PAT

ROBERTSON. PAT, WELCOME TO THE

700 CLUB CANADA.

HEY. GOOD TO BE WITH YOU.

CONGRATULATIONS ON WHAT YOU'RE

DOING. I'M SO THRILLED.

WELL, YOU KNOW, WHEN WE LOOK

AT YOU, WE ARE PEACOCK PROUD

BECAUSE WE ARE THE OFFSPRING OF

WHAT HAS TAKEN PLACE. AND, YOU

KNOW, CANADA WAS NOT JUST AN

AFTERTHOUGHT, BUT ACTUALLY HAD

A VERY INTERESTING RELATIONSHIP

WITH CANADA IN THE BEGINNING.

WELL, YOU KNOW, WHEN I FIRST

ACCEPTED THE LORD, UH, THE

GENTLEMAN WHO LED ME TO THE

LORD SAID, "YOU WOULD BE

BLESSED IF YOU WENT UP TO A

CAMPUS IN THE WOODS IN THE LAKE

OF BAYS IN ONTARIO." YOU KNOW

AND SPENT SOME TIME UP THERE.

WELL, I'M MARRIED. I'VE BEEN IN

BUSINESS. I'VE BEEN CHILDREN

AND YET, I TOLD MY WIFE I'M

GOING UP TO CANADA TO SEEK THE

LORD AND SHE SORT OF THOUGHT I

WAS CRAZY. NO SHE DIDN'T, BUT

YOU KNOW, WELL SHE LIKED

CANADA, WE BOTH DID, BUT, YOU

KNOW, IN THOSE DAYS, TORONTO

WAS CALLED TORONTO THE GOOD.

I MEAN, IT WAS A CITY OF

CHURCHES. AND I CAME UP THERE

AND I REMEMBER I WAS PRAYING.

WE WERE IN A CABIN. WE DIDN'T

HAVE HOT WATER OR ANYTHING AND

THIS BEAUTIFUL LAKE AND, YOU

KNOW, IF YOU HAD TO TAKE A BATH

YOU HAD TO JUMP IN THIS

FREEZING COLD WATER. I MEAN, IT

WAS THAT KIND OF THING.

IT'S CHANGED.

THEY'VE CHANGED IT?

RIGHT, IT'S CHANGED PAT.

IT HAS.

WE HAVE RUNNING HOT WATER

NOW.

OH, YOU DON'T.

YES.

IS THAT RIGHT?

THAT'S REALLY GOOD.

WELL, THAT TAKES THE JOY OUT

OF IT.

WE'RE STILL IN IGLOOS THOUGH

PAT.

RIGHT, WE'RE IN IGLOOS.

I KNOW. YEAH, THERE WERE NO

ESKIMOS, NO IGLOOS AND NO WILD

ANIMALS, BUT I WAS ON THIS

LITTLE ISLAND AND I REMEMBER I

WAS PRAYING. I SAID, "GOD, WHAT

IS IT" AND THE LORD REALLY

INTRODUCED ME TO THE POWER OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT WHILE I WAS UP

THERE. I MEAN, I WAS INTRODUCED

TO THE REAL POWER OF GOD. IT

WAS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.

AND I COULD TELL YOU A STORY.

COULD I TELL YOU A STORY?

YES, TELL US.

YES, PLEASE BECAUSE YOU KNOW

SO MANY OF US AND I REALLY

BELIEVE THAT WE'RE SEEING A

GENERATION THAT WILL SEE THE

MOVE OF GOD.

YES.

AND THE POWER OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT LIKE WE'VE NEVER SEEN IT

BEFORE. AND IT'S HAPPENING IN

CANADA RIGHT NOW AND IT'S FROM

ATLANTIC TO PACIFIC. AND WE GET

AN OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY FOR

PEOPLE ALL THE TIME, BUT I

DON'T THINK WHAT THEY

UNDERSTAND IS THAT WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE AND ALSO THOSE

PRAYERS, THEY ORIGINATED HERE

BECAUSE I WAS A PART OF WHAT

GOD PUT INSIDE OR YOUR HEART.

SURE.

SO, I'D LOVE TO HEAR THAT.

WELL, I WAS ACTUALLY JUST

OUT OF THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY AND

I WAS UP THERE. WANTED TO TRY

MY WINGS TO SO TO SPEAK AND WE

WERE ON THIS LITTLE ISLAND. ON

THE MAINLAND, THERE WAS A

RESORT WHERE THEY HAD A NUMBER

OF YOUNG PEOPLE, COLLEGE

STUDENTS WORKING THERE. AND I

WANTED TO REACH THEM FOR THE

LORD. SO, I WANTED TO SEE IF

THEY WOULDN'T COME TOGETHER

FOR A MEETING, A BIBLE STUDY OR

SOMETHING, WORSHIP SERVICE. SO,

WE PUT UP SOME NOTICES OVER

THERE AND I SAID, "WELL, WHEN

CAN I DO IT?" AND HE SAID,

"WELL, WE'D GIVE YOU TUESDAY

AFTERNOON." I SAID NO WAY. YOU

KNOW, THESE KIDS WANT TO GO OUT

CANOEING AND THEY WANT TO GO

SWIMMING AND THEY WANT TO GO ON

ALL THE RECREATION. THEY'RE NOT

GOING TO GO ON A BEAUTIFUL DAY

AND SIT IN SOME BUILDING TO

LISTEN TO US TALK. AND SO, I

SAID, OKAY. IF THAT'S THE ONLY

DAY YOU GIVE ME, I'LL HAVE TO

ASK THE LORD TO MAKE IT RAIN.

SO, I SAID, "GOD, WILL YOU

PLEASE LET IT RAIN?" AND I

PRAYED AND PRAYED AND SUNNY DAY

AND WE'RE READY TO GO. WE HAD

TO GET IN AN OPEN BOAT AND GO

ACROSS THE WATER. AND I'M

PRAYING. I'M SAYING, "GOD,

WHERE IS THE RAIN?" AND IT WAS

NO RAIN. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL. I

MEAN, SUNNY, LOVELY DAY. AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN, I HEARD THIS

WHISTLING NOISE. THIS IS THE

HONEST TRUTH. IT WAS SOMETHING

GOING LIKE THIS, YOU KNOW,

WHISTLING. AND I LOOKED UP

BEHIND THE CABIN WHERE I WAS ON

THIS ISLAND AND THERE'S THIS

LITTLE TINY CLOUD AND IT WAS

COMING ALONG THROUGH THE SKY

LIKE IT WAS LATE. IT WAS KIND

OF, LIKE, HURRYING OR RUNNING

REAL FAST HONESTLY. AND IT CAME

ALL THE WAY ACROSS AND IT

STOPPED RIGHT WHERE I WAS. WE

WALKED DOWN TO THE DOCK, GOT

INTO AN OPEN BOAT, MOTOR BOAT,

OPEN BOAT AND THIS LITTLE CLOUD

WENT RIGHT AHEAD OF US AND IT

STARTED TO RAIN. AND IT RAINED

ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE LAKE AS

I WENT TOWARD, I GUESS BRACE

BRIDGE OR WHERE THAT RESORT WAS

AND IT WAS RAINING. AND IT

STOPPED OVER THE PLACE WHERE

THE MEETING WAS GOING TO BE AND

IT JUST POURED RAIN. WE WERE ON

AN OPEN BOAT, DIDN'T GET WET OR

ANYTHING. I GOT OUT AND THE

RAIN HAD STOPPED BY THE TIME I

GOT THERE. AND THIS ROW WAS

JAMMED WITH KIDS, JAMMED AND

I THOUGHT, MAN THIS IS GOD.

THIS IS GOD.

BUT IT WAS ONE OF THOSE

THINGS I'LL NEVER FORGET. IT WAS

SO WONDERFUL TO SEE GOD. YOU

KNOW AND YOU READ ABOUT DAVID

AND THE LORD SAID TO HIM, "WHEN

YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF GOING IN

TO TOP OF THE MULBERRY." WELL,

I HEARD THE SOUND.

THE RUSH.

YEAH, THE ARMIES OF THE LORD

HAD GONE OUT AHEAD OF ME.

AND THAT SOUND IS STILL IN

CANADA NOW AND THAT'S WHAT I

REALLY BELIEVE. I KNOW LAURA

LYNN, YOU HAD A QUESTION, BUT

WHAT I WAS GOING TO ASK, PAT, IF

YOU COULD PRAY FOR US BECAUSE

THAT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN PRAYING

FOR THAT WE WOULD SEE IN THIS

21ST CENTURY CANADIAN SOCIETY

A CONTINUATION OF PENTECOST.

WELL, CANADA BELONGS TO THE

LORD. IT'S GOD'S COUNTRY. IT

IS. I MEAN, I KNOW, AS I SAY, I

I CUT MY SPIRITUAL TEETH UP

THERE AND I KNOW WHAT ANOINTING

THERE WAS IN THAT AREA AND IT'S

SO BEAUTIFUL UP THERE. THE

BEAUTIFUL LAKES AND THE TREES

AND THE FOREST. IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

BUT GOD WANTS THAT COUNTRY, SO

OF COURSE, WE WILL PRAY.

LET'S PRAY TOGETHER.

LET'S PRAY.

FATHER, WE PRAY TOGETHER

RIGHT NOW FOR CANADA. YOU LOVE

THIS COUNTRY AND WE THINK OF

TORONTO, TORONTO THE GOOD, THE

CITY OF CHURCHES. AND WE THINK

THROUGHOUT THIS LAND THERE'S A

CHRISTIAN WHO'S PRIME MINISTRY

AND WE PRAY LORD THAT THEY'LL

BE MILLIONS AND MILLIONS WILL

COME TO THE LORD. AND BLESS MY

BROTHER AND SISTER AND THIS

PROGRAM THEY'RE DOING, ANOINT

BY YOUR HOLY SPIRIT AND DO

MIRACLES IN CANADA THAT YOUR

NAME MIGHT BE HONORED IN THIS

GREAT LAND IN JESUS NAME WE ASK

IT.

IN JESUS NAME.

AMEN.

AMEN.

AMEN AND WE SURE WITH YOU

TO KNOW THAT PEOPLE LOVE YOU UP

IN CANADA. OH, IT'S NOT A DAY

WHEN THEY DON'T KNOW THAT WE'RE

DOING THE 700 CLUB CANADA, BUT

THEY'RE, LIKE, BUT THAT PAT. WE

LOVE THAT PAT AND WE'RE NOT

GOING TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THAT

OVER UNTIL YOU ARE LONG GONE

AND, YOU KNOW SO WE APPRECIATE

YOU.

WELL, YOU TELL THEM I WAS A

BABY CHRISTIAN CUTTING MY TEETH

IN CANADA SO THE MOTHER'S MILK

OF CHRISTIANITY FLOWED INTO ME

FROM THIS GREAT LAND. I LOVE

CANADA.

AND YOUR MINISTRY AND THE

WAY THAT YOU HAVE BLESSED AND

THE HEALING AND THE LIFE

GIVING INSPIRATION AND

KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE SHARED

FROM THE WORD OF GOD, SO, THANK

YOU FOR YOUR LEGACY. WE

PERSONALLY ARE INDEBTED TO WHAT

YOU HAVE DONE SO.

WELL I SOME SO THRILLED WITH

WHAT YOU ARE DOING. YOU'RE

CARRYING THE LEGACY BEYOND

BELIEF.

WE ARE CARRYING THE TORCH.

AND YOU'RE A TRANSPLANTED

CANADIAN BY CHOICE.

YES.

YOU WERE IN AFRICA.

I'M AN AFRICAN.

YEAH, WE HAVE AFRICAN

AMERICANS, DO WE HAVE CANADIAN

AFRICANS?

YOU KNOW WHAT, YOU COULD

JUST SEE THE ROOTS.

BUT I CAN'T DANCE. HIS

BROTHER CAN DANCE. WE COULD DO

THAT FOR YOU SOME TIME, MAYBE

LATER, YEAH?

THERE WILL BE NO DANCING.

I DON'T DANCE. I DON'T KNOW

WHAT HAPPENED THERE. I DON'T

SING, YEAH. HE'S SINGS AND

DANCES.

THE LORD BLESS YOU AND THANK

YOU FOR THE WORK YOU'RE DOING.

THANK YOU.

APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU.

GOD BLESS.

GOD BLESS. YOU KNOW, LAURA

LYNN, WHEN I GET AN OPPORTUNITY

TO SEE AS WE SHARED TOGETHER, A

MAN LIKE PAT ROBERTSON AND ALL

THAT HE'S ACCOMPLISHED, YOU

KNOW, WE ARE ACTUALLY LOOKING

AT A LIVING LEGEND.

ABSOLUTELY AND FEW PEOPLE

REALIZE, YOU KNOW, THE BACK

STORY OF HOW GOD CALLED HIM TO

THE MEDIA AND, YOU KNOW, WE

THINK OF BEING CALLED TO A

FOREIGN FIELD OR, YOU KNOW, TO

AFRICA AND YET, HE WAS CALLED

TO GO TO ON TELEVISION AND HE

HAD THREE DOLLARS TO HIS NAME.

IT WAS SUCH AN INCREDIBLE FAITH

WALK. THEN, HE BOUGHT THE

PROPERTY DOWN THERE, YOU KNOW

FOR VERY LITTLE, BUT HE DIDN'T

HAVE IT AND HE HAD TO COME UP

WITH THE MONEY AND HE JUST KNEW

THAT GOD WAS TELLING HIM

SOMETHING AND I WONDER IF

YOU'RE OUT THERE AND YOU'VE GOT

A DREAM IN YOUR HEART BECAUSE

GOD HAS TOLD YOU TO BE

FAITHFUL. THIS IS A MAN WHO

JUST SIMPLY WALKED IN OBEDIENCE

AND YOU AND I ARE THE SAME WAY.

WE'RE HERE BECAUSE OF

OBEDIENCE.

, WELL, YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE

THINGS, THE REASON WHY I SAY A

LIVING LEGEND IS BECAUSE I WAS

TALKING TO GORDON BEHIND THE

SCENES AND HE SAID ONE OF THE

HARDEST THINGS IS, AS A BOY, HE

SAID WHEN HIS DAD PURCHASED

THAT FIELD. HE SAID THERE WAS

NOTHING THERE.

RIGHT.

AND THEN NOW, WHEN YOU LOOK

AT REGENT UNIVERSITY THAT'S

COMPETING ON THE SAME LEVEL

WITH THEIR LAW SCHOOL WITH

HARVARD AND OTHERS AS WELL. AND

WHEN YOU SEE THAT OVER 580

MILLION SOULS THAT HAVE COME

INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND

HEALING, DELIVERANCE, AND

SALVATION ALL OVER THE WORLD.

AND WE ARE THE RECIPIENTS HERE

IN CANADA.

SO, WHAT WAS HE SAYING?

WAS HE SAYING IT WAS HARD TO

SEE WHAT MY DAD WAS DOING?

WELL, HE SAID HE DIDN'T SEE

IT. AS A YOUNG BOY, IT WAS HARD

FOR HIM TO COMPREHEND BECAUSE

HE SAID, "WHEN WE FIRST STARTED

HERE AT THIS PROPERTY, THERE

WAS NOTHING HERE. IT WAS JUST A

FIELD.

RIGHT.

BUT HIS DAD LOOKED AND IT

REMINDS ME OF HOW GOD SPEAKS.

IN ROMANS 4:17, GOD CALLS THOSE

THINGS THAT ARE NOT AS THOUGH

THEY WERE. AND YOU KNOW, WHEN

PAT DID THAT, GOD HAS HONORED

THAT AND THEN HERE WHEN HE WAS

JUST A YOUNG MAN AND SEEING

REVIVAL BREAK OUT IN CANADA,

WE'RE A CONTINUATION OF THAT

PENTECOST TAKING PLACE HERE.

ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH, BE

IT SO.

AMEN.

UP NEXT, AN UNLIKELY

FRIENDSHIP LEADS TO AN

INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY FOR

JOEL GORDON AND BEN PORTER.

[MUSIC]

I'VE BEEN ACTING AND

PRODUCING AND DIRECTING

TELEVISION. GOD REALLY STARTED

TO JUST SPEAK TO ME AND I

STARTED QUESTIONING WHETHER

THIS WAS REALLY BRINGING GLORY

TO GOD.

JOEL GORDON HAD ACHIEVED

MAJOR MOTION PICTURE SUCCESS AS

AN ACTOR LIVING IN TORONTO. HE

FELT THAT GOD WAS PULLING HIM

IN ANOTHER DIRECTION.

I REALLY FELT GOD SAYING TO

ME, "JOEL, IF YOU WANT TO FOLLOW

ME, YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW ME

ONLY." THERE CAN'T BE ROOM TO

WALK EVEN A DEGREE OFF. I NEED

YOU TO WALK DOWN THIS STRAIGHT

AND NARROW PATH" AND FOR ME,

THAT MEANT LEAVING ACTING

BEHIND. FOR ME TO GIVE THAT UP

WAS, YOU KNOW, PROBABLY ONE OF

THE MOST DIFFICULT DECISIONS

THAT I HAD TO MAKE.

JOEL LEFT ACTING WITHOUT

FULLY KNOWING WHAT WAS NEXT OR

THAT HALFWAY ACROSS CANADA, A

MAN NAMED BEN PORTER WAS GOING

THROUGH HIS OWN LIFE-CHANGING

SITUATION.

MY WIFE AND I GOT A CALL AND

WE FOUND OUT THAT HER YOUNGEST

BROTHER HUNG HIMSELF, ATTEMPTED

SUICIDE. IT BROKE US. HE WAS

IN THE HOSPITAL FOR ABOUT THREE

AND A HALF WEEKS AND IT WAS IN

THAT TIME WHERE GOD PUT US BOTH

IN A PLACE WHERE WHATEVER HE

WANTED TO DO, HE COULD DO AND

BEGGING GOD TO SHOW ME WHAT'S

NEXT, HE SPOKE.

GOD GAVE BEN A VISION, TO

REACH THE YOUTH OF CANADA,

SPOKE ONE WORD THAT BECAME

BEN'S MISSION. THAT WORD WAS

LOVE.

AND WHAT'S THE HOPE FOR THE

13-YEAR-OLD OR 14-YEAR-OLD

THAT'S LOOKING UP TO WHATEVER

POP STAR, YOU KNOW, OUT OF

HOLLYWOOD AND WHAT THEY'RE

TEACHING THEM WITH SEX TAPES

AND PORNOGRAPHY AND EVERYTHING

ELSE.

THROUGH A SERIES OF

COINCIDENCES, STRANGE TIMING,

AND MUTUAL ACQUAINTANCES, BEN

AND JOEL MET AND IMMEDIATELY,

THEY FELT THAT GOD WAS UP TO

SOMETHING.

AND WE CONNECTED AND OUT OF

THIS WILLINGNESS, OUT OF THIS

SURRENDER, THE LOVE MOVEMENT

WAS BORN. LOVE MOVEMENT SEEKS

TO EMPOWER CHRISTIAN YOUTH TO

LIVE AT THEIR FAITH BY A

REVIVED BIBLICAL UNDERSTANDING

OF LOVE.

IN ONE OF BEN'S EARLY

PRAYERS FOR US WHEN WE'D BE

PRAYING ABOUT DIRECTION AND

MOVING FORWARD WITH THE LOVE

MOVEMENT WAS THAT GOD WOULD

SHOCK AND AMAZE AND GOD I THINK

REALLY DELIVERED ON THAT .

WITH JOEL'S EXTENSIVE

BACKGROUND IN MEDIA AND THEIR

SHARED VISION TO REACH AND

TEACH THE YOUTH, THE TWO MEN

GOT TO WORK ON A DOCUMENTARY

THAT EXPLORED THE SUBJECT OF

LOVE.

AND SO HE SET ALL THESE

INTERVIEWS UP AND THAT'S WHEN

WE REALLY STARTED TO SEE GOD

WORK. SO, PEOPLE THAT WE WOULD

GENERALLY NOT HAVE ACCESS TO

THE DOORS WERE JUST BLOWN WIDE

OPEN. SO, GOD JUST KEPT WORKING

IN THAT WAY, JUST PROVIDING US

WITH ACCESS TO PEOPLE AND

GETTING GREAT INTERVIEW CONTENT

WHICH THEN MORPHED INTO THE

CURRICULUM THAT WE HAVE NOW,

WHICH IS REALLY THE MAIN FOCAL

PIECE OF LOVE MOVEMENT.

THE CURRICULUM IS DESIGNED

TO ENGAGE AND EQUIP THE NEXT

GENERATION WITH HOPE AND ITS

PURPOSE IS TO DEFINE THE WORD

LOVE IN A WAY THAT OUR CULTURE

DOES NOT.

OUR GROUP DOES IT AND IT

SORT OF HELPS THEM TO DISPEL

MYTHS ABOUT WHAT LOVE TRULY IS.

AND WE THEN IN THE CURRICULUM,

POINT THEM TO WHAT GOD'S WORD

HAS TO SAY ABOUT WHAT LOVE

TRULY IS. AND THE LAST PIECE OF

THE CURRICULUM IS THAT NOW THAT

YOU KNOW WHAT LOVE IS, WHAT ARE

YOU GOING TO DO WITH IT? THE

WHOLE CONCEPT OF LOVE HAS BEEN

HIJACKED BY OUR CULTURE. THE

OVERWHELMING MESSAGE IS THAT

LOVE IS ABOUT YOU. WHAT IF LOVE

IS ACTION DRIVEN? WHAT IF LOVE

IS ROOTED IN THE PERSON OF

JESUS CHRIST? THAT UNITY, THAT

JOY THAT PIECE, IS SO DIFFERENT

THAN WHAT THE WORLD HAS, WHAT

THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER.

WHEN THE MESSAGE OF LOVE

THAT JESUS SPOKE OF AND LIVED

IS RECEIVED BY A NEW

GENERATION, THAT IS WHEN LOVE

CAN TRULY CHANGE THE WORLD.

IF WE COULD CHANGE WHAT

WIKIPEDIA HAS WRITTEN ABOUT

LOVE AND FOR YOUNG PEOPLE TO

KNOW THAT THEY WERE A PART EN

MASS, YOUNG PEOPLE ALL AROUND

THE WORLD CAME TOGETHER TO HELP

ADD ANOTHER PARAGRAPH IN THE

WIKIPEDIA ABOUT WHAT LOVE TRULY

IS BECAUSE IT'S ABOUT GOD AND

IT'S ROOTED IN WHO GOD IS. THAT

WOULD BE INCREDIBLE.

COMING UP NEXT ON THE 700

CLUB CANADA.

YOU KNOW, NO MATTER HOW LONG

MY BIKE EVENT IS, IT ALWAYS

DIVIDES IT FOR ME INTO THREE

THIRDS. THERE'S THE FIRST PART

OF IT WHEN YOU'RE GETTING INTO

IT. YOU'RE OPTIMISTIC, YOU SAY

YOU CAN DO THIS THING.

IF YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY

TO COME BEFORE ALMIGHTY GOD TO

ASK ONE QUESTION, WHAT WOULD

THAT QUESTION BE?

WHY IS THERE SO MUCH

SUFFERING?

WILL I GO TO HEAVEN.

HOW CAN I KNOW YOU GOD?

WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH MY

LIFE?

HOW CAN I HAVE A BLESSED

LIFE?

FIND THE BIBLICAL ANSWERS

TO LIFE'S MOST IMPORTANT

QUESTIONS. PAT ROBERTSON

TEACHES, "HOW SHOULD WE NOW

LIVE?" AVAILABLE NOW.

CLUB CANADA. THIS MAN HAS

SEVEN GRANDSONS, ARVID LOEWEN.

THREE, TWO, ONE, GO.

THE RACE ACROSS AMERICAN.

IT STARTS IN OCEANSIDE,

CALIFORNIA AND FINISHES IN

ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND. IT'S A

SINGLE STAGE BIKE RACE. I HAVE

TO DO IT IN LESS THAN 12 DAYS

TO BECOME AN OFFICIAL FINISHER.

IN ITS 32 YEAR HISTORY, LESS

THAN 300 DIFFERENT PEOPLE HAVE

FINISHED THE RAM.

SUCCESSFULLY.

IT'S AN INCREDIBLE

EXPERIENCE.

THE RAM IS, LIKE, ONE

REALLY, REALLY, REALLY LONG DAY

BECAUSE IT BECOMES YOUR FOCUS

AND YOU'RE DETERMINED TO KEEP

YOUR RIDER ON THE BIKE.

YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU'RE ON A

BIKE FOR 24 HOURS, 48 HOURS,

AND YOU DO THIS STUFF, IT

ACTUALLY BECOMES A VERY SELF

SERVING AND SELFISH ENDEAVOR.

AND IT DIDN'T SIT WELL WITH ME

AND I SIMPLY SAID, "IF I'M

GOING TO PUT THAT KIND OF

EFFORT INTO SOMETHING, IT'S GOT

TO BE FOR SOMETHING ELSE THAN

MY PERSONAL SATISFACTION." SO,

THAT'S WHAT LED ME TO THE POINT

WHERE I SAID I GOT TO TRY AND

DO SOMETHING WITH IT.

[MUSIC]

2005, I WAS SENT PICTURES

AND STORIES OF ABOUT 30 KIDS.

I CHOSE, FOR NO APPARENT REASON

ONE KID, A LITTLE GIRL NAMED

CHARITY WHO WAS JUST A TODDLER

AT THAT TIME, MAYBE A YEAR AND

A HALF, TWO YEARS OLD.

CHARITY'S STORY IS VERY SIMPLY

SHE WAS BORN TO A TEENAGE MOM,

POVERTY, FAMILY PROBLEMS LED

THIS TEENAGE MOM TO A STATE OF

DESPERATION AND SHE LEFT HER

INFANT TO DIE ON THE ROCKS BY

THE SIDE OF THE RIVER. CHARITY

WAS RESCUED BY SOMEBODY AND

PLACED IN THE CARE OF

MULLY CHILDREN'S FAMILY.

IN 2006, WE WENT TO ONE OF

THEIR EVENING PROGRAMS, THE

DEVOTIONAL PROGRAM SINGING THAT

THEY DO. I LOVE KIDS. LITTLE

KIDS WERE RUNNING AROUND IN

THE BACK. I HELD OUT MY ARMS,

AND LITTLE GIRL JUMPED ON MY

LAP. IT HAPPENED TO BE CHARITY.

I HAD CARRIED HER PICTURE FOR

30 DAYS AND 7000 KILOMETERS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY. NOW, SHE

SAT ON MY LAP FOR 30 MINUTES.

AND EVERYTHING CHANGED FOR

ME AT THAT TIME. YOU KNOW, I

FELT LIKE GOD HIT ME ON THE

HEAD WITH A TWO-BY-FOUR AND

HE SAID, "THAT'S WHY THE OTHER

DOORS CLOSED. THAT'S WHY THIS

DOOR OPENED UP."

[MUSIC]

THE FEELING THAT YOU HAVE,

LIKE I TOLD THEM AT THE

BEGINNING, IF WE GET TO

ANNAPOLIS, IF WE DO THIS

SUCCESSFUL, IT'LL BE A WHOLE

TEAM ACCOMPLISHMENT. HE

COULDN'T GET HERE ON HIS OWN

AND IT TAKES ALL OF US TO MAKE

THIS HAPPEN AND THAT'S A REALLY

REALLY NEAT FEELING.

IT'S A BIG CHALLENGE FOR

ANYONE, WHOEVER WANTS TO TRY

IT. IT WOULD KIND OF BE, LIKE,

YOU KNOW, GET FIVE OF YOUR BEST

FRIENDS, ALL GET INTO A SMALL

CAR AND SPEND THE NEXT WEEK OR

TWO TOGETHER BEING SLEEP

DEPRIVED AND BEING IN, YOU KNOW

SORT OF ONE STAR MOTELS AND

YOU'RE ALL SORT OF SWEATY AND

SMELLY AND NOW, YOU'RE UNDER

STRESS TRYING TO MAKE SURE

THAT ARVID DOESN'T SPEND AN

EXTRA MINUTE ON THE BIKE GOING

THE WRONG WAY. SO, THE STRESS

IS UNBELIEVABLE IN TERMS OF

SORT OF MINUTE TO MINUTE AND

NOT WANTING TO LET HIM DOWN.

MY GOAL AND I GUESS THE

GOALS FOR EVERYONE ON THE TEAM

IS TO BE THE BEST WE CAN, TO DO

WHATEVER WE CAN TO MAKE ARVID

WIN.

YOU KNOW, NO MATTER HOW LONG

MY BIKE EVENT IS, IT ALWAYS

DIVIDES IT FOR ME INTO THREE

THIRDS. THERE'S THE FIRST PART

OF IT WHEN YOU'RE GETTING INTO

IT. YOU'RE OPTIMISTIC, YOU SAY

YOU CAN DO THIS THING, BUT THEN

THERE'S THAT MIDDLE THIRD.

AND IT'S THE MIDDLE THIRD, NO

MATTER HOW LONG YOUR EVENT IS,

CAN BE ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATING

MENTALLY BECAUSE YOU'RE IN TO

IT TOO FAR TO QUIT, BUT YOU

CANNOT EVEN CONCEIVE MAKING IT

TO THE END.

THIS IS A TOUGH RACE, BUT

IT'S ALSO A DANGEROUS RACE.

AS SAFE AS THEY TRY AND KEEP

THINGS FOR THE RIDERS, THERE'S

ALWAYS SOMETHING GOING ON AND

WE HAVE TO BE EXTREMELY

CAREFUL AND YOU'RE SLEEP

DEPRIVED.

YOU GOT UPS AND DOWNS IN THE

RACE. YOU GOT SOME GOOD DAYS.

YOU TO SOME DAYS THAT DIDN'T

GO THAT WELL. WE HAD ONE NIGHT

IN PARTICULAR WAS PRETTY TOUGH.

LIKE, A GUY, I HAD A HARD TIME

WAKING HIM UP. HE JUST WAS SO

EXHAUSTED, THAT IT WAS HARD TO

WAKE HIM UP.

AT THE END, IT LOOKS LIKE,

IT'S GOING TO BE DOWN TO WIRE.

IT'S GONNA BE NIP AND TUCK TO

MAKE IT IN THE ALLOTTED TIME.

IT WAS HOT AND THEN IT JUST

BECAME INSANELY HOT AND I WAS

TALKING WITH ONE OF THE RACE

OFFICIALS HERE WHO SAID IT WAS

ABOUT 10 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT

OVER THE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME

OF YEAR, SO IT WAS, FOR

CANADIANS, IT WAS IN THE HIGH

40S.

WHEN MY STOMACH WENT SOUTH

ON ME IN DAY TWO IN THE MOJAVE

DESERT AND WITH THE UNBEARABLE

HEAT, I DIDN'T SEE HOW I WAS

GOING TO RECOVER.

BUT I MADE A COMMITMENT. I

MADE A DECISION THAT YOU DON'T

QUIT IN LIFE WHEN IT'S AT ITS

WORSE, YOU DELAY THE DECISION,

YOU DELAY THE FINAL DECISION

WHEN YOU ARE IN A MUCH BETTER

FRAME OF MIND. AND THEN THERE

IS THE LAST PART OF OUR RIDE,

THE LAST THIRD WHEN YOU

ACTUALLY START TO SEE THERE'S

LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL,

MAYBE I CAN DO THIS.

[MUSIC]

I'M SO HAPPY FOR HIM BECAUSE

HE'S WORKED VERY, VERY HARD AND

HE DESERVES IT AND THE KIDS AT

MULLY CHILDREN'S FAMILY DESERVET

TOO BECAUSE THEY'VE BEEN REAL

PRAYER WARRIORS FOR HIM, SO

YOU KNOW, A BIG SHOUT OUT TO

THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE HIS

INSPIRATION.

[MUSIC]

THANK YOU.

SIMPLY AMAZING WHEN YOU LOOK

AT THOSE TESTIMONIES, WHAT GOD

CAN DO WITH JUST SIMPLE

OBEDIENCE.

YES, ABSOLUTELY. AND YOU

KNOW, THAT IS THE MISSION OF

THE 700 CLUB CANADA. IT'S TO

INSPIRE YOU EVERY DAY THAT GOD

HAS A PURPOSE AND A PLAN FOR

YOUR LIFE. AND IF YOU'LL WALK

IN FAITH AND OBEDIENCE TO HIM,

HE IS GOING TO MAKE YOUR PATH

STRAIGHT AND IT'S GOING TO BE

PHENOMENAL. BUT YOU KNOW, ALL

OF THIS, IT TAKES A LOT OF

RESOURCES AND WE NEED YOUR

HELP. WE CAN'T DO IT ALONE.

WE WANT TO INVITE YOU TO BE

A PART OF THIS MISSION. FOR

JUST $20 A MONTH, YOU CAN

BECOME A 700 CLUB CANADA

PARTNER OR IF YOU'RE ABLE TO

GIVE MORE, IT'S ONLY $40 A

MONTH TO BECOME A GOLD PARTNER

AND AS A THANK YOU FOR YOUR

MONTHLY GIFT, WE WOULD LOVE TO

SEND YOU THIS AMAZING DVD BY

PAT ROBERTSON ENTITLED, "HOW

SHALL WE NOW LIVE?" WHERE HE

SOME OF THE MOST CHALLENGING

QUESTIONS ON PEOPLE'S MINDS

TODAY.

SO, CALL NOW, HELP US REACH

AS MANY CANADIANS AS WE CAN

WITH THE POWER OF JESUS CHRIST.

1-855-759-0700.

YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU LOOK AT

THE STORY AND YOU SEE THE LOVE

MOVEMENT AND THEN YOU SEE A

GRANDFATHER IN ARVID LOEWEN.

YES.

AND ALSO WITH AN APOSTOLIC

FIGURE PAT ROBERTSON, WE

REALIZE THAT THERE ARE DREAMS

RIGHT NOW THAT GOD IS RAISING

UP AND UNEARTHING HERE IN

CANADA. NOW, WE WANT TO AGREE

WITH YOU, BUT WE ALSO DON'T

WANT YOU TO SIT BACK. IF YOU

BELIEVE THAT GOD IS QUICKENING

AND STIRRING YOUR HEART NOW, WE

WANT YOU ALSO TO CALL THE

NUMBER ON THE SCREEN JUST SO

WE KNOW TO CONTINUE TO PRAY

WITH YOU AND TO PRAY FOR YOU

BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT GOD IS

GIVING WITTY INVENTIONS RIGHT

NOW. LET'S PRAY TO THAT END.

FATHER, IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

I PRAY THAT THE FIRE OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT WOULD COME UPON,

LORD, MEN AND WOMEN, BOYS AND

GIRLS AND THAT SPIRIT OF

REVIVAL TO THOSE THAT EVEN

TODAY, ARE GOING TO SAY, "LORD

DURING THIS PRAYER, I'LL GO

WHERE YOU WANT ME TO GO, DO

WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO, BE

WHAT YOU WANT ME TO BE.

LORD, I AM YOURS. LORD, THOSE

YES MEN AND THOSE CHILDREN OF

GOD, I PRAY NOW THAT THE POWER

OF GOD WOULD COME UPON THEIR

LIFE AND THAT YOU WOULD OPEN

DOORS THAT NO MAN CAN SHUT AND

SHUT DOORS THAT NO MAN COULD

OPEN AND DO IT NOW LORD FOR

YOUR GLORY AND HONOR, IN JESUS

NAME, AMEN.

AMEN. YOU KNOW, BRIAN, WHEN

I THINK ABOUT YOUR STORY AND

HOW YOU ALWAYS SAY THAT, YOU

KNOW, GOD CALLED YOU TO THIS

PLACE. HE CALLED YOU OUT OF A

PROFESSIONAL CAREER AND YOU'RE

STILL A PASTOR. IT'S REALLY NEAT

TO KNOW THAT GOD HAS AN

INCREDIBLE PLAN FOR YOU. BE

ENCOURAGED TODAY BY ALL OF

THESE STORIES THAT YOU ARE ON

THE RIGHT TRACK IF YOU JUST

KEEP TRUSTING GOD.

IT'S GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT.

BUT THAT'S THE SAME WITH

YOUR STORY AS WELL BECAUSE YOU

WERE WATCHING CABLE TELEVISION.

AND YOU SAID, "I CAN DO THAT."

AND I KNOW GOD HAS CALLED ME

TO DO THAT AS WELL.

YES, AND HERE WE ARE.

A YOUNG DAUGHTER OF

MISSIONARY PARENTS.

YEAH.

AND THEN GOD IS NOW USING

YOU TO TOUCH ATLANTIC TO PACIFI.

YEAH, IT'S A COOL LIFE AND

GOD HAS A VERY, VERY

AMAZING WALK FOR YOU AS WELL.

WE SURE DO LOOK FORWARD TO

BEING WITH Y'ALL AGAIN. UNTIL

NEXT TIME, I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON.

AND I'M BRIAN WARREN. HAVE A

GREAT DAY CANADA.
