Even with a chronic, disabling disease, Wendy was able to take a mission trip to Africa where her life took a dramatic turn. Plus, musician Jamie Grace shares how a diagnosis of a life altering syndrome stunted her spiritual walk. Read Transcript


OBAMACARE IS THE LAW OF

THE LAND.

YOU'RE GOING TO PAY MUCH,

MUCH LES MORE AND GET LESS

IN RETURN.

PLUS...

MY WHOLE LEFT SIDE WAS

NUMB.

A DEGENERATE DISEASES --

I WOULD PROBABLY NOT WALK

AGAIN.

-- VANISHES WITHOUT A

TRACE.

I KNEW SOMETHING HAD

HAPPENED TO ME.

PLUS, AT HOME WITH SINGER

JAMIE GREY.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

WHILE IT'S COLD OUT HERE IN

VIRGINIA BEACH, 31°, AND

WIND BLOWING.

Terry: WE DON'T WANT TO

GO TO THE BEACH TODAY.

Pat: WE DON'T?

Terry: WE DON'T.

Pat: THE POLAR BEAR

CLUB HAS DONE ITS THING.

Terry: WELL, THOSE

PEOPLE ARE CRAZY.

MORE STORMS ARE COMING.

Pat: UNBELIEVABLE.

ONE AFTER THE OTHER.

I READ 4,000 RECORDS BROKEN

FOR COLD AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

IT HAS BEEN UNBELIEVABLE.

IF YOU'VE BEEN COLD WHERE

YOU ARE, TAKE HEART, A LOT

OF OTHER PEOPLE ARE

SUFFERING WITH YOU.

WELL, IT'S COLD IN SOCHI,

BUT THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE

BECAUSE IT IS THE WINTER

OLYMPICS.

AND THEY GOT UNDER WAY.

AND THE DEPARTMENT OF

HOMELAND SECURITY HAS A

WARNING FOR INTERNATIONAL

TRAVELLERS: TERRORISTS MAY

TRY TO USE TOOTHPASTE

TUBES -- CAN YOU BELIEVE

THAT -- FILLED WITH

EXPLOSIVES TO CREATE A

BOMB.

Terry: THE GAMES ARE

BEING OVERSHADOWED BY

NUMEROUS THREATS OF ISLAMIC

TERRORISM.

ERICK STAKELBECK HAS THIS

REPORT.

Reporter: YOU ARE

LOOKING AT THE SO-CALLED

RING OF STEEL, A MASSIVE

SECURITY ZONE AROUND THE

SOCHI OLYMPIC SITE,

STRETCHING FOR SOME

1500 MILES, AND FORTIFIED BY

UP TO 70,000 RUSSIAN

SOLDIERS AND FEDERAL

SECURITY AGENTS.

THESE GAMES ARE A HUGE STAGE

FOR VLADIMIR PUTIN TO

PROJECT RUSSIA'S STRENGTH TO

THE WORLD.

HE HAS VOWED TO CRACK DOWN

HARD ON ANY POTENTIAL

THREATS.

SOCHI IS LOCATED IN THE

NORTH CAUCUSUS REGION.

LINKED TO al-QAEDA,

JIHADISTS IN THESE STATES

WANT TO BREAK AWAY AND FORM

AN ISLAMIC GROUP.

AND NOW THEY'RE THREATENING

TO STRIKE THE OLYMPICS.

IN RECENT WEEKS, AUTHORITIES

IN AND AROUND SOCHI HAVE

BEEN ON THE LOOKOUT FOR

SO-CALLED BLACK WIDOWS,

FEMALE SUICIDE BOMBERS FROM

CHECHNYA AND DAGESTAN, WHO

HAVE A DEADLY RECORD.

A RESEARCH POLL SHOWED SOME

44% OF THE AMERICANS THINK

THAT HOLDING THE OLYMPICS IN

SOCHI IS A MISTAKE.

FOR NOW, THOUGH, SOME U.S.

ATHLETES DON'T SEEM TOO

WORRIED.

I'M NOT CONCERNED.

I THINK THE ORGANIZING

COMMITTEE HAS DONE AN

AMAZING JOB OF MAKING SURE

EVERYBODY IS SAFE.

PERSONALLY, I FEEL VERY SAFE

HERE.

Reporter: ONE POTENTIAL

PROBLEM, WITH ALL OF THE

SECURITY FOCUSED AROUND

SOCHI, SOME ANALYSTS HAVE

WARNED THAT TERRORISTS COULD

STRIKE OTHER RUSSIAN CITIES

DURING THE GAMES.

ERICK STAKELBECK, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, ERICK IS

WITH US NOW FROM

WASHINGTON.

I UNDERSTAND THEY'RE

SPENDING AN INCREDIBLE

$55 BILLION ON THESE GAMES.

IT IS UNPRECEDENTED, AND YET

THEY'VE GOT ALL OF THESE

PROBLEMS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

YEAH, PAT.

THESE GAMES ARE WAY OVER

BUDGET, NUMBER ONE.

I THINK THE MAIN PROBLEM

HERE IS SOCHI, WHERE THE

OLYMPICS ARE BEING HELD.

IT IS IN THE NORTH CAUCASUS

REGION OF SOUTHERN RUSSIA.

THAT IS JUST 300 MILES FROM

CHECHNYA AND DAGESTAN.

I DON'T KNOW QUITE WHAT THE

OLYMPIC ORGANIZERS WERE

THINKING TO HAVE THE GAMES

IN SOCHI, BUT THE CLOSE

PROXIMITY TO CHECHNYA --

THESE ARE THE TERRIBLE

HOTBEDS.

THEY ARE LINKED TO

AL-QAEDA.

IT IS NOT JUST A RUSSIAN

THING FOR THE CHECHENS.

BEFORE THEIR MAIN TARGET WAS

MOTHER RUSSIA, AND THEY WANT

TO BREAK AWAY, BUT NOW WE'RE

SEEING THESE CHECHENS POP UP

IN JIHADIST HOT SPOTS AROUND

THE WORLD, SOMALIA,

PAKISTAN.

A FEW WEEKS AGO, I TALKED TO

AN INTELLIGENCE SOURCE WHO

TOLD ME IN SYRIA, SOME OF

THE MOST BLOOD THIRSTY,

VIOLENT JIHADISTS ON THE

GROUND ARE CHECHENS, AND

THEY'RE ATTACKING PEOPLE.

SO THE CLOSE PROXIMITY TO

SOCHI IS A BIG, BIG

PROBLEM.

WE'VE KNOWN THAT THE

OLYMPICS WERE GOING TO BE

HELD IN SOCHI FOR A FEW

YEARS, AND WE COULD HAVE HAD

A SLEEPER CELL ON THE GROUND

FOR A FEW YEARS PREPARING.

VERY DANGEROUS STUFF.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT THESE

SO-CALLED BLACK WIDOWS?

IS THAT FOR REAL?

PAT, THIS IS ALL TOO

REAL.

WE HAVE SEEN THESE BLACK

WIDOWS FROM CHECHNYA AND

DAGESTAN.

BASICALLY, PAT, THESE ARE

WOMEN, FEMALE SUICIDE

BOMBERS.

NOW, THEIR HUSBANDS WERE

TERRORISTS WHO HAVE BEEN

KILLED BY RUSSIAN SECURITY

SERVICES.

SO THESE BLACK WIDOWS WANT

REVENGE.

PAT, FOR THEM IT IS

PERSONAL.

NOT ONLY ARE THAT

IDEOLOGICAL FANATICS, BUT

THEY ARE AVENGING THEIR DEAD

HUSBANDS.

WE'VE SEEN THEM CARRY OUT

SEVERAL DEADLY ATTACKS ALL

OVER RUSSIA.

AND, BY THE WAY, THE THING

ABOUT THE BLACK WIDOWS,

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE

THE ISLAMIC GARB ON.

THEY'RE GOING TO WEAR JEANS

AND A T-SHIRT, AND THEY'RE

FEMALE.

YOU'RE NOT NECESSARILY

LOOKING AT A CAUCASIAN WOMAN

AS YOUR TYPICAL TERRORIST.

AND ACCORDING TO REPORTS,

THERE MAY BE SOME OF THESE

BLACK WIDOWS ALREADY ON THE

GROUND IN AND AROUND SOCHI.

Pat: LOOK AT THIS

TOOTHPASTE, WHAT DO YOU PUT

IN A TOOTHPASTE TUBE THAT

CAN BLOW SOMEBODY UP?

WHAT KIND OF EXPLOSIVE GOES

INTO THOSE THINGS?

PAT, THAT'S A GREAT

QUESTION.

WE'VE HAD SHOE BOMBERS,

UNDERWEAR BOMBERS, AND A

PLOT BACK IN 2006, A MAJOR

PLOT, INVOLVING FLUIDS IN

CONTAINERS.

I'M NOT SURE EXACTLY WHAT

EXPLOSIVE DEVICE YOU CAN GET

IN THERE, BUT THESE

TERRORISTS ARE VERY INGENIUS

IN AN EVIL, DIABOLICAL WAY,

WHEN IT COMES UP TO NEW

METHODS TO HARM PEOPLE.

AND ANOTHER INTERESTING

WRINKLE TO THAT ADMINISTER

FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF

HOMELAND SECURITY, EARLIER

THIS WEEK, FRENCH

AUTHORITIES ARRESTED, YES,

TWO CHECHEN WOMEN.

IS THERE A LINK?

GOOD QUESTION.

WITH THIS TOOTHPASTE PLOT,

THE CHECHENS HAVE BEEN

FOCUSED MAINLY ON RUSSIAN

TARGETS, BUT IF THEY'RE

GOING TO ATTACK TRANS

ATLANTIC FIGHTS, THAT MEANS

AMERICANS AND EUROPEANS WILL

BE KILLED AS WELL.

SO WHAT IS COMING OUT OF

DAGESTAN IS GOING GLOBAL.

Pat: THE PERSONAL

QUESTION, LAST QUESTION,

WOULD YOU GO TO THE OLYMPICS

AND BE A SPECTATOR IN

SOCHI?

I WOULD GO TO BE A

SPECTATOR IF MY CHILDREN OR

A FAMILY MEMBER WERE

PARTICIPATING.

IF I WAS AN ATHLETE, I WOULD

GO.

AS A CASUAL SPECTATOR, I

DON'T THINK I WOULD GO.

I WOULD LET MY CHILD GO

BECAUSE THEY'VE WORKED FOR

IT THEIR WHOLE LIFE.

BUT AS A CASUAL SPECTATOR, I

THINK I WOULD FIND A LITTLE

LESS DANGEROUS PLACE TO BE

ON MY WEEKEND.

Pat: PLEASE DO, ERICK.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

HERE AT HOME, THE LONG, COLD

WINTER IS GREETING STILL

WORSE PROBLEMS FOR

TRAVELLERS.

WHILE OTHER PEOPLE HAVE LOST

POWER IN THEIR HOMES, JOHN

JESSUP HAS THAT STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

Reporter: PAT, THAT'S

RIGHT.

THE RELENTLESS AND BITTER

WINTER IS BATTERING THE

NORTHEAST, WITH TWO MAJOR

STORMS IN TWO WEEKS, AND NOW

A THIRD ON THE WAY.

WEDNESDAY'S STORM DELIVERED

SNOW AND TONS OF ICE, MAKING

TRAVEL DANGEROUS IN MORE

THAN 20 STATES, FORCING THE

CANCELLING OF THOUSANDS OF

FLIGHTS, AND EVEN SHUTTING

DOWN A SECTION OF I-94 AFTER

A CHAIN OF COLLISIONS.

IT IS PROBABLY ONE OF OUR

WORST DAYS THROUGH THIS

WINTER SEASON.

Reporter: NEARLY

100 MILLION PEOPLE DON'T

HAVE POWER TODAY, MOST OF

THEM IN PENNSYLVANIA.

CREWS ARE WORKING AS FAST AS

THEY CAN.

A LEADING CONGRESSMAN SAYS

THE I.R.S. WAS TRYING TO

PROVIDE SERVICE FOR

POLITICAL GROUPS.

THE I.R.S. AND THE TREASURY

DEPARTMENT WERE WORKING ON

THE RULES LAST NOVEMBER,

AWAY FROM PUBLIC VIEW.

THE CAMP WANTS ALL NEW

REGULATIONS FOR POLITICAL

GROUPS PUT ON HOLD.

HE SAYS HIS COMMITTEE WILL

FIGHT ANY ATTEMPTS FOR THE

RIGHT FOR PEOPLE TO SPEAK

OUT.

PAT?

Pat: OUR JEWISH FRIENDS

HAVE A TERM, CHUTSPAH, AND

THE PRESIDENT SAID THERE IS

NOTHING WRONG WITH THE

I.R.S., THEY HAVE BROKEN NO

LAW.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY

NOTHING.

THEY'RE ABSOLUTELY CLEAN.

YOU HAVE TO ASK THE

PRESIDENT, IF THEY'RE SO

CLEAN, HOW COME LOIS LEARNER

TOOK THE FIFTH?

WHAT IS THE FIFTH ABOUT?

IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE AGAINST

SELF-INCRIMINATION OF A

CRIME.

SHE WOULD NOT TESTIFY

BECAUSE OF IN CIN

INCRIMINATING HERSELF.

AND NOW THE WORD IS COMING

OUT THEY HAVE A WHOLE PLAN

TO TARGET CONSERVATIVE

GROUPS.

JAY SECULO CAN'T BE WITH US

BECAUSE HE HAS A TRIAL

GOING.

BUT THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR

LAW AND JUSTICE IS SUING THE

I.R.S. ON THIS WHOLE C-4

PROBLEM THAT CAME UP.

HE WILL BE WITH US NEXT WEEK

TO TELL MORE ABOUT HIS

FIGHT, BUT HE IS GETTING

DOCUMENTS.

AND THEY'VE GOT TO TURN OVER

STUFF THAT THEY MAY NOT EVEN

TURN OVER TO A CONGRESSIONAL

COMMITTEE.

JOHN?

Reporter: THE DECISION

BY C.V.S. TO STOP SELLING

TOBACCO COULD HAVE RIPPLE

EFFECTS.

C.V.S. IS THE NATION'S

SECOND LARGEST DRUGSTORE

CHAIN, AND ITS C.E.O. SAID

IT DECIDED IT COULDN'T KEEP

PROVIDING CIGARETTES IN

STORES THAT ALSO PROVIDE

HEALTH CARE.

THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING TO

TEAM UP WITH HOSPITAL GROUPS

AND DOCTORS TO HELP

PATIENTS.

OTHER CHAINS, LIKE WALGREENS

AND RITE-AID ALSO SELL

TOBACCO PROBLEMS.

TOBACCO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR

HALF A MILLION DEATHS A

YEAR.

THAT IS QUITE A BOLD MOVE BY

C.V.S.

Pat: IT IS.

THAT IS A $2 BILLION

BUSINESS.

$2BILLION IS A BIG HIT TO

THEIR BOTTOM LINE.

THAT, OF COURSE, IS RETAIL.

IT ISN'T NECESSARILY THE

PROFIT, BUT NEVERTHELESS,

THAT'S A LOT OF MONEY.

AND IF RITE-AID PICKS UP THE

SAME THING, AND WALGREEN

DOES THE SAME THING, IT WILL

PUT A DENT IN CIGARETTES AND

TOBACCO.

I COMMEND C.V.S.

I THINK IT IS AN EXCELLENT

MOVE.

BUT, BOY, IT IS ONE OF THOSE

THINGS THAT DEFINITELY IS

GOING TO HIT THEIR BOTTOM

LINE AND POCKETBOOK.

THAT IS VERY COURAGEOUS.

Terry: IT IS A PLEASURE

TO SEE A CORPORATION WITH A

CONSCIENCE.

GO C.V.S.

COMING UP, IF THE PRESIDENT

WON'T CHANGE IT, THAT

DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN'T BEAT

IT.

FIND OUT HOW TO SURVIVE

OBAMACARE.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: YOU WONDER WHY THE

DEMOCRATS JAMMED THROUGH

THAT ILL-CONCEIVED HEALTH

CARE BILL.

BECAUSE THEY KNEW THAT

ULTIMATELY IT WOULD COST

THEM THE CONGRESS.

AND IT WILL.

THE CHANCES OF THE SENATE

FLIPPING TO THE REPUBLICANS

IS VERY, VERY STRONG.

THE REPUBLICANS WILL HOLD ON

TO THE HOUSE, AND THEY'LL

STILL HAVE THE WHITE HOUSE

UNTIL OBAMA IS FINISHED.

AND THEY MIGHT ELECT A

PRESIDENT THAT YOU DON'T

KNOW.

BUT IT WAS AS IF IF WE CAN

GET THIS THING INTO THE

AMERICAN EXPERIENCE, IT WILL

BE LIKE AN INIBA THAT WILL

SPREAD OUT AND LIKE A FUNGUS

THAT YOU CAN'T GET RID OF.

THEY KNEW IF THEY COULD

SOCIALIZE THAT PART OF OUR

ECONOMY, ONE-SIXTH OF THE

ECONOMY, THEY WOULD BE A

LONG WAY TOWARDS THE GOAL OF

HAVING CENTRAL CONTROL OF

WHAT A GREAT DEAL OF

AMERICANS DO.

OBAMA MADE LIES WHEN HE WAS

SELLING IT.

IF YOU LIKE YOUR HEALTH

CARE, YOU CAN KEEP IT.

IF YOU LIKE YOUR DOCTOR, YOU

CAN KEEP IT.

IF YOU HAVE HEALTH CARE, IT

WILL BE CHEAPER FOR YOU.

INSTEAD, THIS THING HAS

CREATED SO MANY PROBLEMS,

MUCH OF IT HAS BEEN PUT ON

HOLD.

AGAIN, HE DIDN'T HAVE

CONGRESSIONAL AUTHORIZATION

TO DO IT, BUT HE DID IT

UNILATERALLY, IGNORING WHAT

IS CALLED THE RULE OF LAW.

WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT,

THAT RETCHED PIECE OF

LEGISLATION IS THE LAW OF

THE LAND.

IT PASSED THE CONGRESS

WITHOUT ANY REPUBLICAN

SUPPORT AT ALL.

IT IS STRICTLY A DEMOCRATIC

BILL, AND OBAMA SIGNED IT

INTO LAW.

BUT AS LORI JOHNSON SAT DOWN

WITH ONE PERSON WHO KNOWS

OBAMACARE INSIDE AND OUT,

SHE GOT SOME TIPS AND HOW

YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO AVOID

THE PITFALLS.

Lori: OBAMACARE HAS

BEEN AROUND IN ONE FORM OR

ANOTHER FOR OVER THREE YEARS

NOW.

AND MOST AMERICANS STILL

DON'T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS FOR

THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES.

THAT INCLUDED MUCH OF

CONGRESS.

BUT WE HAVE TO PASS THE

BILL SO THAT YOU CAN FIND

OUT WHAT IS IN IT.

Reporter: BETSY

McCOY, HOWEVER, READ IT

AND UNDERSTANDS IT.

IN HER NEW BOOK, "BEATING

OBAMACARE 2014," SHE SPELLS

OUT HOW TO BRACE OURSELVES

FOR WHAT IS AHEAD.

OVER HALF OF OBAMACARE IS

PAID FOR WITH CUTS TO

MEDICARE, MOSTLY WHAT

MEDICARE PAYS HOSPITALS.

ONE RESULT, HOSPITALS WILL

CUT BACK ON NURSES.

SO NO MATTER WHAT AGE YOU

ARE, IF YOU'RE GOING INTO

THE HOSPITAL, BE AWARE

YOU'RE GOING TO GET A LOWER

STANDARD OF CARE.

AND WHEN YOU PRESS THAT

BUTTON FOR HELP, YOU'RE

GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT

LONGER.

Reporter: SO IF YOU

KNOW YOU'RE ENTERING THE

HOSPITAL, YOU COULD HIRE A

PRIVATE DUTY NURSE, AT LEAST

FOR THE FIRST NIGHT OR TWO.

ALL OF THE DOCTORS KEEP A

LIST OF PRIVATE DUTY NURSES

THEY PREFER.

THE HOSPITAL ALSO HAS A LIST

OF AGENCIES WITH WHICH THEY

DEAL SO THAT THE NURSES THEY

CALL WILL BE VERY FAMILIAR

WITH THE ROUTINE OF THAT

HOSPITAL.

Reporter: THOSE

MEDICARE CUTS WILL ALSO HIT

INDIVIDUAL DOCTORS AS

THEY'RE REIMBURSEMENTS FOR

TREATING THEIR MEDICARE

PATIENTS WILL DROP.

SO PLAN AHEAD.

IF YOU'RE IN YOUR

MID-50s, LATE 50s, EARLY

60s, LINE UP YOUR DOCTORS

NOW, EVEN IF YOUR HEALTHY.

BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T, WHEN

YOU TURN 65 AND GO ON

MEDICARE, YOU WON'T BE ABLE

TO FIND A DOCTOR WILLING TO

TAKE YOU ON AS A NEW

PATIENT.

Reporter: WE ALL

CONFIDE THINGS TO OUR DOCTOR

THAT WE WOULDN'T TELL ANYONE

ELSE, BUT UNDER OBAMACARE

DOCTORS ENTER ALL OF THAT

PRIVATE INFORMATION IN A

COMPUTER.

IN RECENT HEADLINES, IT

HIGHLIGHTS THAT INFORMATION

ON THE WEB CAN FALL INTO THE

WRONG HANDS.

YOU OUGHT TO TALK TO YOUR

DOCTOR ABOUT KEEPING TWO

SETS OF BOOKS.

SO THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS

THAT JUST STAY IN THAT

OFFICE.

JUST GIVE YOUR DOCTORS A

HEADS-UP.

YOUR DOCTOR WILL APPRECIATE

IT BECAUSE DOCTORS TAKE THE

HIPOCRATIC OATH, AND THAT

OATH MEANS KEEPING YOUR

CONFIDENCES PRIVATE.

Reporter: THIS YEAR AN

ESTIMATED 25 MILLION PEOPLE

WILL LOSE THE HEALTH

INSURANCE THEY HAVE THROUGH

WORK.

EMPLOYERS WON'T BE ABLE TO

AFFORD THE NEW, SMALL GROUP

PLANS THAT CONTAIN ALL OF

THE BENEFITS THAT GOVERNMENT

REQUIRES.

SO DON'T BE CAUGHT

OFF-GUARD.

GO TACK TO YOUR HUMAN

RESOURCES DIVISION NOW, OR

YOUR BOSS, OR IF YOU'RE JUST

PART OF A SMALL GROUP, TALK

AMONG YOURSELVES AND FIND

OUT WHETHER THIS IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

THERE IS NOTHING WORSE THAN

BEING CLOBBERED BY

SURPRISE.

Reporter: IF YOU'RE

COMPANY INSURANCE GOES AWAY,

YOU'LL NEED TO BUDGET MORE

FOR HEALTH CARE.

BE AWARE IF YOU'RE FORCED

TO GO TO THE EXCHANGE,

YOU'RE GOING TO PAY MUCH,

MUCH MORE, AND GET LESS IN

RETURN.

Reporter: IT MIGHT BE

CHEAPER TO CHOOSE COVERAGE

THAT DOESN'T MEET THE

GOVERNMENT REQUIREMENTS AND

PAY THE PENALTY.

TALK TO AN INSURANCE

AGENT AND SEE IF THAT IS A

VIABLE ALTERNATIVE FOR YOU.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU TRY TO

GET HIGH DEDUCTIBLE

INSURANCE, OR A PLAN THAT

DOESN'T MEET THE 10

ESSENTIAL BENEFITS, BUT HAS

EVERYTHING YOU WANT.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH

OBAMACARE IS THE LAW OF THE

LAND, McCOY SAYS IT IS NOT

TOO LATE FOR A MOTIVATED

CONGRESS TO REPEAL IT.

THEN IN THE FUTURE, WHEN

WE HAVE BETTER PEOPLE IN

CONGRESS, WE PLACE IT WITH

TARGETED HELP FOR THE

UNINSURED.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT WILL

DO?

IT WILL LEAVE THE REST OF US

ALONE.

Reporter: AND FINALLY,

McCOY SAYS PEOPLE OF FAITH

NEED TO FIGHT BACK.

THIS LAW IS PART OF A

MUCH BROADER AND, I'M SAD TO

SAY IT, A BROADER ASSAULT ON

OUR ABILITY TO WORSHIP.

NOT JUST WORSHIP IN CHURCH,

BUT, MORE IMPORTANTLY, TO

PRACTICE OUR FAITH IN OUR

EVERY DAY LIVES.

THERE IS A BIG ASSAULT ON

RELIGION.

I THINK WE HAVE TO TAKE A

STAND AT THIS POINT AND SAY,

IF YOU LIKE YOUR GOD, YOU

CAN KEEP YOUR GOD.

Pat: MAN, SHE IS

SOMETHING ELSE.

BETSY McCOY.

AND YOU HAD A CHANCE TO MEET

WITH HER?

Lori: I DID.

AND SHE IS SO

KNOWLEDGEABLE.

AND SHE WANTS EVERYONE TO

KNOW THAT THE BIGGEST PUNCH

IS GOING TO COME TO THE

SENIORS.

$716BILLION IS GOING TO BE

TAKEN OUT OF MEDICARE AND

REDISTRIBUTED INTO

ENTITLEMENTS AND OTHER

PROGRAMS UNDER OBAMACARE.

THAT SHAKES DOWN TO ABOUT

$1500 LESS BEING SPENT PER

SENIOR.

BUT THERE ARE SOME THINGS

THAT SENIORS CAN DO TO

MITIGATE THE DAMAGE.

Pat: WHAT CAN THEY DO?

Lori: FOR ONE THING, WE

SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE FACT

THAT SECTION 3,000A GIVES

BONUS POINTS TO HOSPITALS

WHO SPEND THE LEAST AMOUNT

ON SENIORS -- NOT ANY

PATIENT, JUST SENIORS.

AND THEY MEASURE THAT BY

WHEN YOU'RE IN THE HOSPITAL

AND 30 DAYS AFTER YOUR

HOSPITAL STAY.

SO LET'S SAY YOU GO INTO THE

HOSPITAL AND HAVE A KNEE

REPAIRED.

WELL, THEY MIGHT TELL YOU

THAT YOU DON'T NEED TO COME

BACK FOR REHAB.

BUT YOU NEED TO DO YOUR OWN

RESEARCH AND LOOK INTO IT

FOR YOURSELF AND PUSH THAT

MUCH HARDER FOR CARE THAT

YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU NEED.

AND IT IS ALSO GOING ON NOT

JUST IN THE HOSPITALS, BUT

IN DOCTORS' OFFICES AS

WELL.

MEDICARE REIMBURSEMENTS ARE

REALLY GOING TO BE GOING

DOWN.

Pat: IF THEY THROW A

ELDERLY PERSON OUT OF THE

HOSPITAL SOONER, THEY GET A

BONUS FROM THE GOVERNMENT?

THEY DO.

AND THEY ALSO GET PENALIZED

FOR KEEPING THEM TOO LONG.

AND MEDICARE REIMBURSEMENTS

ARE JUST PLUMMETTING.

THEY'RE LOW ALREADY.

BUT LET'S SAY YOU ARE A

SENIOR AND YOU HAVE BACK

PAIN.

WELL, THERE ARE LOTS OF

PROCEDURES DOCTORS CAN DO IN

THE OFFICE TO KEEP YOU FROM

HAVING BACK SURGERY.

BUT MEDICARE IS NOW GOING TO

BE REIMBURSING 60% LESS.

NOT 16, BUT 60% LESS.

SO DOCTORS AREN'T GOING TO

WANT TO SPEND THE TIME IF

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE

GETTING PAID HARDLY ANYTHING

FOR IT.

YOU NEED T INTO WHAT IS

BEST FOR YOU.

Pat: WHAT DID THEY

THINK THE GAME PLAN WAS?

THEY ARE DESTROYING THE

RIGHTS OF PEOPLE AND THE

HEALTH OF OUR NATION.

FOR WHAT?

IS IT THE SOCIALIST AGENDA

TO TAKE OVER?

WHAT DOES SHE THINK?

Lori: SHE THINKS MOST

PEOPLE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS

IN THE LAW.

Pat: THAT'S WHY THE

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE SAID.

Lori: YES.

AND IT IS DEFINITELY A

SURPRISE FOR PEOPLE WHO

VOTED FOR IT AND PEOPLE WHO

PASSED IT.

IT IS GOING TO BE

INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT

HAPPENS IN THE ELECTION.

WE SAW SIX MILLION PEOPLE

LOSE THEIR HEALTH HEALTH

CARE, AND NOW IT IS GOING TO

BE FOUR TIMES WORSE.

THEY'LL BE GETTING THEIR

NOTICES, PROBABLY IN THE

FALL, RIGHT BEFORE THE

ELECTION.

PEOPLE NEED TO BE CAREFUL

BECAUSE THIS MIGHT EFFECT

YOU IF YOU WORK FOR A

MEDIUM-SIZED COMPANY, AND

YOU MIGHT BE GETTING THAT

NOTICE IN THE MAIL.

PEOPLE NEED TO START

THINKING ABOUT THAT NOW AND

REWORKING THEIR BUDGET

BECAUSE IF YOU LOSE YOUR

HEALTH CARE AT WORK, YOU'RE

GOING TO SPENDING MORE MONEY

FOR IT.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO RE-THINK

THAT VACATION OR PURCHASE

COMING UP.

BECAUSE ACCORDING TO THE

KAISER FOUNDATION, PEOPLE

WHO GET HEALTH CARE AT WORK

SPEND $990 PRE-TAX, BUT IN

THE EXCHANGE, IT IS GOING TO

BE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS

AFTER TAXES.

THE AVERAGE DEDUCTIBLE FOR

PEOPLE WHO GET INSURANCE

FROM WORK NOW IS ABOUT $1100

A YEAR.

IT IS GOING TO BE MANY TIMES

THAT MORE.

Pat: YOU'RE SAYING IS A

NIGHTMARE.

IT IS GOING TO BE A BODY

BLOW TO THE POOR IN

AMERICA.

A BODY BLOW TO THE ELDERLY.

THIS IS INCREDIBLE.

WHAT THESE PEOPLE IN

WASHINGTON HAVE DONE TO US

IS BEYOND BELIEF.

Lori: WELL, IF MORE

VOTERS FEEL THAT WAY, WHEN

THEY START GETTING THEIR

NOTICES, PERHAPS THE

ELECTION WILL GO DIFFERENTLY

THAN THE PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTION WENT BEFORE.

THAT'S BEFORE WE LEARNED ALL

OF THE BAD THINGS OF

OBAMACARE AND WE ONLY KNEW

THE GOOD THINGS.

YOUR KIDS CAN STAY ON YOUR

POLICY UNTIL THEIR 26.

Pat: IT'S JUST SIMPLY

GASE GASLY TO CONTEMPLATE

WHAT THEY'RE DOING.

I HAD A MEETING YESTERDAY

OVER AT REGENT UNIVERSITY,

AND I ASKED OUR RESOURCE

DIRECTOR, I SAID, HOW ARE WE

DOING WITH HEALTH CARE?

AND HE SAID WE'RE FINE,

WE'RE GRANDFATHERED IN.

SO IT IS NOT AFFECTING US AT

ALL.

Wendy: THAT'S GOOD

NEWS.

THANK YOU FOR TELLING ME

THAT.

ON A MORE SERIOUS NOTE,

PEOPLE FEEL VERY POWERLESS.

THERE ARE THINGS PEOPLE CAN

DO, LIKE WE JUST TALKED

ABOUT.

AND THERE IS ONE OTHER ONE

STARING US RIGHT IN THE

FACE, AND THAT'S DON'T GET

SICK.

DON'T NEED YOUR HOSPITAL OR

DOCTOR THAT MUCH.

PEOPLE ARE LIKE, YOU CAN'T

AVOID THAT.

YES.

RESEARCH SHOWS 80% OF OUR

HEALTH PROBLEMS OF THINGS WE

DO TO OURSELVES.

BAD LIFESTYLE CHOICES.

TOPPING THE LIST, FOOD --

SUGAR AND TRANS-FATS, THE

TWO MAIN INGREDIENTS IN

PROCESSED FOODS, WHICH ARE

THE TWO MOST DEADLY AND

CAUSE ALL OF THE DISEASE.

AND WE KNOW WE SHOULD BE

EATING MORE VEGETABLES,

DRINKING MORE WATER, AND

TAKING SUPPLEMENTS BECAUSE

THE MICRONUTRIENT

DEFICIENCY.

STRESS IS A KILLER.

WE NEED TO GET MORE SLEEP,

DRINK MORE WATER.

AND ALL OF THIS INFORMATION

IS ON OUR WEBSITE.

IF PEOPLE WANT MORE

INFORMATION ON WAYS TO AVOID

DISEASE --

Pat: WELL, I'M GOING

FOR 100.

MAYBE MORE THAN 100, BUT AT

LEAST A HUNDRED.

YOU SAY, WOULDN'T IT BE NICE

TO GET OUT OF HERE, BUT I

THINK I WANT TO STAY AROUND

MORE.

WE NEED TO LISTEN TO THIS

LADY AND FIND OUT HOW YOU

CAN STAY HEALTHY.

DID YOU SEE THAT PIECE ABOUT

SUGAR?

Lori: OH, YEAH.

I LOVED IT.

I LOVED YOUR DEMO.

Pat: I THINK TWO

TEASPOONS IS ABOUT THE MAX

THEY TELL YOU YOU'RE

SUPPOSED TO HAVE.

Lori: IT IS FUNNY YOU

SHOULD MENTION THIS BECAUSE

NEXT WEEK WE'RE AIRING A

STORY ON DIABETES.

AND THE DOCTOR I INTERVIEWED

ABOUT DIABETES SAID WE ONLY

NEED ONE TEASPOON OF SUGAR

IN OUR BLOODSTREAM AT ANY

TIME.

AND THERE ARE 16 TEASPOONS

OF SUGAR IN ONE COOK.

Pat: WE WANT YOU TO

STAY HEALTHY AND STAY ALIVE

AND STAY OUT OF THAT OBAMA

TRAP.

OH, MAN.

WELL, THE ELECTIONS ARE

COMING UP, AND IT IS TIME TO

SAY YOU DID IT TO ME, AND

I'M GOING TO DO IT BACK TO

YOU.

REVENGE IS NOT CHRISTIAN,

BUT GETTING IN GOOD

REPRESENTATIVES IN THE

CONGRESS, CERTAINLY IN A

DEMOCRACY, IS A GOOD THING

TO DO.

WELL, TERRY, WE'VE SCARED

EVERYBODY.

TELL US SOME GOOD NEWS.

Terry: HERE IS

SOMETHING FOR YOU TO LOOK

FORWARD TO.

WE'RE GOING TO PUT YOU ON

THE HOT SEAT FOR ANOTHER

ROUND OF "BRING IT ON."

JILLIAN SAYS, "A FRIEND TOLD

ME WHEN SOMEONE IS PUT UNDER

ANESTHESIA, DEMONS CAN ENTER

YOUR MIND.

IS THIS TRUE?"

PAT IS GOING TO ANSWER THAT

AND MUCH MORE.

DON'T GO AWAY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: TIME TO "BRING

IT ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

THIS FIRST ONE COMES FROM

JILLIAN, WHO SAYS, "MY

FRIEND TOLD ME HE BELIEVES

WHEN SOMEONE IS PUT UNDER

ANESTHESIA, THEY MIGHT GET

INFESTED WITH DEMONS AND

MESS UP THEIR MIND.

I HAVE TO GET MY WISDOM

TEETH OUT SOON AND I'M

TERRIFIED.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: THEY DON'T HAVE TO

KNOCK YOU OUT TO GET YOUR

WISDOM TEETH OUT --

Terry: THEY KIND OF DO

THAT TODAY.

THEY SEND YOU TO SURGEONS.

Pat: THEY CAN DO A SHOT

WITH NOVOCAINE.

THEY GIVE YOU LAUGHING GAS.

IT JUST MAKES YOU HAPPY.

Terry: I PREFER BEING

KNOCKED OUT, MYSELF.

Pat: I DON'T THINK IT

IS A DANGER.

BUT I THINK WHEN PEOPLE ARE

HYPNOTIZED IT IS THE POWER

OF SUGGESTION AND YOU ARE

OPENING YOURSELF UP AT THAT

POINT BECAUSE YOU'RE

WILLINGLY GIVING YOUR MIND

OVER TO SAYING, YES, YES,

YOU'RE TIRED.

THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW,

YOU'RE UNDER GREAT

SUGGESTION.

SO I THINK BEING HYPNOTIZED

IS A DANGER.

BUT HAVING ANESTHESIA, I

DON'T THINK SO.

I THINK GOD WILL PROTECT

YOU.

HE PROTECTS US.

Terry: THIS IS ROXANNE

WHO AS, "I KNOW JESUS IS

GOD'S SON.

SO DOESN'T THAT MAKE GOD OUR

HEAVENLY GRANDFATHER?"

Pat: I HAVE SOME

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, AND MY

SON IS THEIR GRANDDADDY, SO

I BECOME BIG DADDY.

NO, JESUS IS NOT OUR

FATHER.

JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD.

AND HE REFERRED US TO THE

FATHER.

THE FATHER LOVES YOU AND HE

IS THE SON OF GOD.

HE IS NOT OUR FATHER.

GOD ALMIGHTY IS ALWAYS OUR

FATHER.

IT IS A NICE THOUGHT, BUT

YOU'RE A LITTLE BIT IN

ERROR.

Terry: THIS IS ALAN WHO

SAYS, "THE BIBLE SAYS IT IS

APPOINTED ONCE FOR MAN TO

DIE AND AFTER THAT, THE

JUDGMENT.

BUT I ALSO HEAR FROM PEOPLE

WHO HAVE HAD NEAR-DEATH

EXPERIENCES AND THEY TALK

ABOUT SEEING HEAVEN.

I'M CONFUSED.

AT WHAT POINT DO WE STAND

BEFORE THE JUDGMENT?"

Pat: YOU'RE ASKING

SEVERAL QUESTIONS.

THE JUDGMENT COMES AT THE

LAST OF TIME, WHEN GOD IS

GOING TO MAKE A NEW HEAVEN

AND A NEW EARTH.

HE IS GOING TO BRING PEOPLE

TO SO-CALLED GREAT WHITE

JUDGE JUDGMENT.

THE BIBLE SAYS HE WHO

BELIEVES ON HIM -- WHO HEARS

MY WORD AND BELIEVES ON HIM

HAS EVERY LASTING LIFE, AND

SHALL NOT COME INTO

JUDGMENT, BUT IS PASSED FROM

DEATH INTO LIFE.

BUT IN TERMS OF ONTO DEATH,

YOU'RE APPOINTED TO DIE

ONCE -- I DON'T THINK SOME

OF THESE EXPERIENCES WE HEAR

ABOUT IS TRUE DEATH.

I THINK IT IS A MOMENTARY

CESSATION OF LIFE, BUT

IT'S --

Terry: NOT FINAL.

Pat: -- NOT FINAL.

THE WHOLE CONCEPT IN THE

HEBREW TRADITION IS AFTER

FOUR DAYS, THE SOUL HAD

DEPARTED FROM THE BODY

COMPLETELY, BUT IN A SENSE,

I THINK YOU'RE STILL HOLDING

ON TO SOME KIND OF LIFE.

I DON'T KNOW ALL OF THE

THINGS THAT GO ALONG WITH

SOMEBODY HAVING A NEAR-DEATH

EXPERIENCE, BUT I DON'T

THINK THAT'S ANY KIND OF

PERMANENT DEATH IN THE

BIBLICAL SENSE.

Terry: THIS IS MARIE

WHO SAYS, "WHERE IN THE

BIBLE DOES IT TALK ABOUT

DINOSAURS AND HOW DID THEY

DIE?"

Pat: THE BIBLE, TO MY

KNOWLEDGE, DIDN'T TALK ABOUT

DINOSAURS.

IT TALKS ABOUT THE GREAT

FISH IN THE SEA, THE WHALES,

IT TALKS ABOUT THE

HIPPOPOTAMUS, AND ALSO GREAT

LIZARDS IN THE OCEAN,

WHATEVER THEY HAPPEN TO BE,

WHETHER THEY'RE CROCODILES

OR WHATEVER.

BUT, YOU KNOW, LIKE THE OR

NOT, THE DINOSAURS LIVED

ABOUT 65 MILLION YEARS AGO.

AND THEY WERE THESE GREAT

REPTILES ON EARTH.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE AN

ASTEROID HIT THE EARTH,

MAYBE AROUND THE YUCATAN

PENINSULA, AND IT WAS SO BAD

IT CHANGED THE WHOLE CLIMATE

STRUCTURE, AND THE DINOSAURS

WERE NO LONGER ABLE TO

SURVIVE.

BUT WE HAVE THE SKELETON OF

DINOSAURS.

THERE IS ONE PARTICULAR ONE

THAT I'M FAMILIAR WITH.

THEY HAVE A TERRANA SAURUS

REX, AND THEY CALLED HER

SUE.

65MILLION YEARS, SO THE

BIBLE DOESN'T TALK ABOUT

IT.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER

WHO SAYS, "IS IT A SIN TO

HAVE A DRINK OF WINE WITHOUT

GETTING DRUNK?

WAS THE WINE AT THE LAST

SUPPER WINE AS WE KNOW IT

TODAY?

WAS IT

ALCOHOLIC?"

Pat: LOOK, IF YOU'VE

EVER DONE ANY DRINKING --

I'M SURE TERRY WOULDN'T, BUT

I DO KNOW ABOUT THAT --

Terry: MY LIPS ARE

SEALED.

Pat: OKAY.

BUT THE MASTER OF THE FEAST

SAID THE TRUTH IS MOST

PEOPLE GET PEOPLE DRUNK AND

THEN THEY BRING OUT THE ROT

GUT.

BUT YOU SAVE THE BEST FOR

LAST.

Terry: THAT'S A MODERN

TRANSLATION.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

BUT THE IDEA THAT YOU WOULD

GET DRUNK ON GRAPE JUICE --

IT IS FERMENTED WINE.

THE BIBLE SAYS IT GLADDENS

THE HEART OF MAN, WINE TO

GLADDEN THE HEART OF MAN IN

OIL TO MAKE HIS FACE SHINE.

A LITTLE BIT OF WINE IS A

BLESSING.

A LITTLE BIT.

A LOT OF IT, WINE IS A

MOCKER.

SO ALCOHOLISM IS BAD.

AND GETTING DRUNK IS BAD.

ONE GLASS OF WINE, ACCORDING

TO THE BIBLE, IT'S A

BLESSING OF GOD TO GLADDEN

THE HEART OF MAN.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

SO DON'T CRITICIZE ME.

THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS.

AS FAR AS TURNING THE WATER

INTO WINE, IT WAS REAL,

HONEST TO GOODNESS ALCOHOL,

WINE.

Terry: THIS IS AVA WHO

SAYS, "WHAT DO YOU DO IF

YOU'RE NOT SURE ABOUT YOUR

PURPOSE IN LIFE.

I'VE PRAYED AND ASKED GOD,

HOWEVER, I HAVEN'T RECEIVED

ANY LEADING AS TO WHAT I'M

SUPPOSED TO DO.

HOW DO I FIND OUT WHAT I

SHOULD DO WITH MY LIFE?"

BOY, A LOT OF PEOPLE ASK

THAT.

Pat: HERE'S WHAT YOU

DO, WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO?

I USED TO HAVE PERSONAL

INTERVIEWS AND I WOULD SAY,

WHEN YOU WERE FIVE YEARS

OLD, WHAT WAS THE HAPPIEST

THING THAT YOU DID?

AND THEY WOULD SAY, WELL, I

MADE LITTLE MOD DE MODEL

ENGINES OR I WALKED OUT IN

THE WOODS OR I PLAYED WITH

MY PUPPY.

WHATEVER IT IS, THAT TELLS

YOU WHAT SOMEBODY IS HAPPY

DOING.

AND GOD MADE YOU TO BE HAPPY

DOING CERTAIN THINGS.

AND IF YOU DO WHAT MAKES YOU

HAPPY, THAT IS YOUR

PURPOSE.

AND YOU'LL FIND OUT MORE AND

MORE WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY.

ARE YOU HAPPY WORKING IN A

WOODWORKING SHOP?

ARE YOU HAPPY TAKING CARE OF

PATIENTS IN A HOSPITAL?

ARE YOU HAPPY TENDING

CHILDREN?

ARE YOU HAPPY WORKING ON

MATH PROBLEMS?

WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?

THAT'S YOUR PURPOSE.

GOD DOESN'T WANT YOU TO BE

JERKED OUT WHAT YOU'RE MADE

TO DO.

HE MADE YOU FOR THAT

PURPOSE.

SO IF YOU SAY I CAN'T FIND

MY PURPOSE IN LIFE, WHAT DO

YOU HAVE FUN DOING?

WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?

THAT'S YOUR PURPOSE.

Terry: AND USUALLY, AS

YOU SAID, YOU HAVE A NATURAL

PROPENSITY TOWARDS IT.

Pat: I LIKE TO CREATE

STUFF, BUSINESSES AND

ORGANIZATIONS.

AND I ALSO LIKE TO LEAD

PEOPLE TO THE LORD.

THAT'S WHAT GOD -- HE LET'S

US DO WHAT HE MADE US FOR.

DO WHATEVER COMES

NATURALLY.

IT COMES NATURAL, AND THAT'S

IT.

SO DON'T BE SEARCHING FOR

SOME MYSTICAL EXPERIENCE

PARTICULAR AN ANGEL WILL

COME DO DOWN AND SAY, YOUR

PURPOSE IS THIS.

YOUR PURPOSE IS WITHIN YOU.

THAT MAKES IT EASY.

Terry: IT DOES.

THANK YOU.

AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS.

WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.

WHEN HER HUSBAND DIED, A

WIDOW IN THAILAND TOOK ANY

JOB SHE COULD DO TO FEED HER

CHILDREN.

HE EVEN WORKED ON A ROAD

CREW DOING CONSTRUCTION.

BUT WHEN A HAILSTORM

DESTROYED HER HOUSE,

PROVIDING FOR HER FAMILY

BECAME EVEN MORE DIFFICULT.

Reporter: WHEN NASHA'S

HUSBAND PASSED AWAY TWO

YEARS AGO, ALL HE WAS ABLE

TO LEAVE TO HIS WIFE AND

THREE CHILDREN WAS THIS

BAMBOO AND GRASS HOUSE,

WHICH HE HAD BUILT WITH HIS

OWN HANDS.

OUR HOUSE GAVE US SHADE

FROM THE SUN AND SHELTER

FROM THE RAIN.

IT WAS VERY VALUABLE TO US.

Reporter: TO MAKE

MONEY, SHE GREW ON SOME

BORROWED LAND.

UNTIL THE OWNER TOLD THEY

THEY COULD NO LONGER USE

IT.

NASHA HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO

DO ROAD CONSTRUCTION.

LIFE BECAME VERY HARD.

I HAD TO TAKE ON MY

HUSBAND'S JOB OF EARNING

MONEY.

BUT I WON'T GIVE YOU BECAUSE

I LOVE MY CHILDREN.

Reporter: THEN A STORM

WITH BASEBALL-SIZED HAIL

DESTROYED PART OF HER

HOUSE.

WE PRAYED THAT GOD WOULD

PROTECT US.

Reporter: AFTER THE

STORM, NASHA COULDN'T AFFORD

TO FIX THE HOUSE OR ROOF, SO

LIVED IN WHAT REMAINED.

Reporter: WHEN A STAFF

MEMBER SAW THO HOW THEY

WERE LIVING, WE HELPED THEM

BUILD A BRAND NEW HOUSE.

AND TO HELP NASHA PROVIDE

FOR HER FAMILY, WE GAVE HER

SOME PIGS TO RAISE AND

SELL.

AND WE GAVE HER THE TOOLS

AND SEEDS NEEDED TO START A

SMALL GARDEN OUTSIDE HER

HOME.

I'M SO HAPPY.

GOD HAS BLESSED ME THROUGH

CBN.

MY CHILDREN AND I GIVE

THANKS TO GOD AND TO YOU FOR

ALL YOUR HELP.

Terry: THE BIBLE SAYS

THAT PURE RELIGION IS TO

TAKE CARE OF WIDOWS AND

ORPHANS IN THEIR NEED.

Terry: SINGER JAMIE

GRACE TALKS ABOUT THE

BIGGEST SURPRISE OF HER

CAREER, WHEN WE RETURN.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

LIN

Terry: A FEW YEARS AGO,

JAMIE GRACE WAS JUST A

TEENAGER WHO LIKED POSTING

VIDEOS TO YouTube.

TODAY SHE HAS TWO HIT ALBUMS

AND A DOVE AWARD SITTING ON

HER MANTEL.

AND AS JAMIE TELLS US, IT IS

A CAREER THAT ALMOST ENDED

BEFORE IT BEGAN.

* WHO IN THE WORLD IS SHE

TRYING TO PLEASE *

* SUDDENLY UNITED

* DON'T GIVE UP NOW

* YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND

YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY *

* THE MEMORIES OF YOU ARE

BURNING BRIGHT *

* OH, JESUS HOW I LOVE THE

WAY YOU ARE RIGHT IN MY

LIFE *

* HOWEVER CAN IT BE

*

I WANTED TO BE EVERYTHING

GROWING UP.

I HAD 85 MILLION DREAMS

EVERY FIVE MINUTES.

WHEN I GOT SICK, I KIND OF

STOPPED DREAMING ABOUT

EVERYTHING.@>

NOTHING WAS REALLY THAT

IMPORTANT TO ME, HONESTLY,

BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS

USELESS TO DREAM.

IT STARTED OFF WITH JUST ARM

GESTURES AND LEG GESTURES.

AND THEN IT WAS MY HEAD

TWITTING.

AND I WANTED TO RESTRAIN MY

BITE.

I REALIZED IT WAS A PROBLEM

WHEN I COULDN'T FIX IT.

I WAS 11 YEARS OLD AND I HAD

AN APPOINTMENT WITH A

NEUROLOGIST.

AND THEY TOLD ME I HAVE

TOURETTE'S SYNDROME.

AND IT CAUSES MOVEMENTS AND

SOUNDS, CALLED TICKS, THAT

WERE INVOLUNTARY.

I WENT INTO MY OWN WORLD

BECAUSE I HATED WHAT I WAS

HEARING.

I HATED THE WORDS "IN

CURABLE," AND "TREATMENT"

AND "TESTS."

TOURETTE'S IS NOT A

LIFE-THREATENING DISEASE,

BUT IT IS VERY MUCH A

LIFE-ALTERING DISEASE.

I HAD AN ISSUE WITH ALWAYS

PRINTING THINGS.

A LOT OF TIMES JUST HITTING

MY KNUCKLES TOGETHER.

MY LEGS WOULD TWITCH EVERY

THREE OR FOUR STEPS.

I WAS ALSO DIAGNOSED LATER

WITH O.C.D., OB

OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE

DISORDER.

I WAS HAVING A HARD TIME

WITH IT.

I FELT LIKE, I HAVE BEEN

SERVING JESUS MY ENTIRE LIFE

IN CHURCH, AND YET I PRAYED

AND SAID, GOD, WILL YOU FIX

IT, AND HE WOULDN'T DO IT.

I THOUGHT IT WAS SOMETHING

PERSONAL.

I WAS, LIKE, SERIOUSLY,

JESUS, I DON'T KNOW IF

YOU'RE LOOKING OVER ME, BUT

I'M FACING SOME BIG STUFF

AND I'M GOING TO NEED YOU TO

FIX IT, LIKE, NOW.

I WAS GETTING REALLY

FRUSTRATED.

I WENT THROUGH THIS PERIOD

OF MY LIFE WHERE I STARTED

TO DOUBT HIM.

MY GRANDDADDY, MY MOM'S DAD,

I THINK HE JUST SAW THAT WE

WERE JUST KIND OF GOING

THROUGH SO MUCH AND JUST

FACING SO MANY TROUBLES.

HE JUST WANTED TO BRING

JOY.

HE BOUGHT A DRUM SET, A

GUITAR, AND AN AMPLIFIER.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, LET'S GO.

AND THE FIRST SONG WE EVER

LEARNED HOW TO PLAY WAS

"AMAZING LOVE."

AND IT SOUNDED AWFUL, BUT I

REMEMBER SITTING THERE AND

PLAYING, "AMAZING LOVE."

I LEARNED HOW TO PLAY THOSE

DRUMS, AND I WAS, LIKE, THIS

IS INCREDIBLE.

PHYSICALLY IT FELT AMAZING.

I CONNECTED WITH MUSIC IN A

WAY THAT I NEVER CONNECTED

WITH ANYTHING BEFORE.

BUT ALSO I REALIZED EARLY ON

THAT WHEN I REALLY GOT IN

THE ZONE, WHEN I REALLY

STARTED TO PLAY, THAT I

DIDN'T TWITCH.

AND I LOVED THAT.

I FELT FREE.

I WAS 13, 14 YEARS OLD, AND

I WAS REALIZING THAT I LOVED

TO PLAY INSTRUMENTS AND I

LOVED TO SHARE MUSIC WITH

OTHER PEOPLEMENT AND I

PEOPLE.

AND I ALSO WAS REALIZING

THAT GOD WAS SHOWING ME THAT

EVEN THOUGH LIFE IS HARD,

LIFE ISN'T OVER.

I REMEMBER WAKING UP ONE

MORNING AND REALIZING THOSE

TWO THINGS WENT TOGETHER,

LIKE, MAYBE I CAN ENCOURAGE

SOMEBODY ELSE.

I WAS, LIKE, I'M GOING TO GO

TO YouTube.

I'VE GOT TO TELL PEOPLE ON

YouTube.

I ALWAYS SAY WHEN YOU SERVE

A BIG GOD, IT IS HARD TO BE

SURPRISED WHEN HE DOES BIG

STUFF.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I WAS

VERY SURPRISED.

I WAS 18 OR 19 WHEN I GOT A

MESSAGE THAT SAID, HEY, I

WOULD LOVE TO TALK TO YOU

ABOUT YOUR MUSIC SOME TIME.

YOUR MUSIC IS GREAT.

THEY OFFERED ME A CONTRACT.

THAT'S HOW IT ALL STARTED.

TWO WEEKS AFTER THAT, WE

WERE IN THE STUDIO RECORDING@>@>

"HOLD ME."@>@>

TOURETTE'S IS A CHALLENGE,

BUT IT IS NOT AS SEVERE AS

IT WAS WHEN I WAS A KID.

I MIGHT GO THROUGH MORE

DIFFICULT THINGS AS I GET

OLDER.

PALMS 30: 5: "WEEPING

ENDURES FOR A NIGHT, BUT JOY

COMES IN THE MORNING."

THAT IS A REMINDER THAT

WE'RE GOING TO CRY, WE'RE

GOING TO WEEP.

IT MAY LAST A WHOLE NIGHT, A

WHOLE WEEK, MAYBE EVEN A

YEAR, BUT GOD'S NEVER-ENDING

JOY WILL ALWAYS COME IN THE

MORNING.

Terry: BE ENCOURAGED BY

JAMIE GRACE'S STORY, AND BE

BLESSED BY HER MUSIC.

SHE HAS JUST RELEASED HER

SECOND ALBUM, AND IT'S

CALLED "READY TO FLY."

IT IS ALREADY FLYING UP THE

BEST-SELLER CHARGES.

YOU CAN PICK IT UP OR

DOWNLOAD YOUR COPY WHEREVER

MUSIC IS SOLD.

COMING UP, A PARAMEDIC IS

CURED OF AN INCURABLE

DISEASE.

HE SAID, I KNOW THIS

WASN'T MODERN MEDICINE.

HE SAID IT WAS A MIRACLE, A

DRAMATIC AND REMARKABLE

RECOVERY.

AND I SAID, I CALL IT

DR. JESUS.

Terry: FIND OUT HOW SHE

WAS HEALED ON A MISSIONS

TRIP, WHEN WE RETURN.

Pat: MULTIPLE

SCLEROSIS, IT IS LIKE A SLOW

DEATH.

LITTLE BY LITTLE BY LITTLE,

THE LIFE IS CHOKED OUT.

THEIR BODILY FUNCTIONS

CEASE.

400,000 AMERICANS SUFFER

FROM WHAT IS CALLED M.S. OR

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

THE DISEASE ATTACKS THE

PERSON'S BRAIN AND CENTRAL

NERVOUS SYSTEM.

AND THERE SEEMS TO BE NO

CURE.

WENDY LAWSEN STRUGGLED WITH

M.S. FOR 11 YEARS.

AND WHILE SHE TOOK MEDICINE

TO CONTROL HER DOZENS,

SYMPTOMS, SHE WAS NEVER

COMPLETELY HEALED UNTIL SHE

MET A LITTLE BOY ON A

MISSIONS TRIP.

Reporter: AT THE AGE OF

27, WENDY WOKE UP ONE

MORNING UNABLE TO FEEL THE

LEFT SIDE OF HER BODY.

MY WHOLE LEFT SIDE WAS

NUMB.

Reporter: WENDY, A

FLIGHT PARAMEDIC, THOUGHT

INITIALLY SHE JUST PINCHED A

NERVE.

SO SHE VISITED SEVERAL

CHIROPRACTORS, AND NOTHING

SEEMED TO HELP.

A FEW DAYS LATER, THAT

NUMBNESS HAD COME OVER TO MY

RIGHT SIDE, AND I WAS

STARTING TO CRIPPLE UP WITH

SPASMS AND TREMORS.

Reporter: PARALYZED AND

SCARED, WENDY WENT TO THE

HOSPITAL.

DOCTORS BEGAN TO RUN A

BATTERY OF TESTS.

FINALLY AN M.R.I. REVEALED

THE PROBLEM: MUL MULTIPLE

SCLEROSIS.

I HAD SEVEN LEASHSIONS

LESIONS IN MY BRAIN.

Reporter: SHE STRUGGLED

WITH THE DEBILITATING SIDE

EFFECTS OF M.S.

I COULD BE IN AN

EXACERBATION FOR WEEKS AND

MONTHS, AND COME OUT OF IT

AND BE IN REMISSION FOR

MAYBE A WEEK OR TWO, MAYBE

THREE WEEKS, BUT THEN I

WOULD BE RIGHT BACK INTO

IT.

I WENT ON WITH THAT M.S. FOR

11 YEARS, IN AND OUT OF

WHEELCHAIRS, HOSPITALS,

REHABS, MY BED.

Reporter: WENDY

EVENTUALLY STARTED GOING TO

CHURCH FOR COMFORT.

THROUGH HER SUFFERING,

WENDY'S FAITH AND LOVE FOR

GOD ONLY GREW.

A LOT OF MY FRIENDS IN

CHURCH HAD SEEN ME CRIPPLED

UP, LAYING IN THE PEW TO

LISTEN TO THE SERMON BECAUSE

I COULDN'T SIT UP.

I HAD A BIBLE STUDY AT MY

HOUSE.

THERE WERE, LIKE, SIX OLDER

WOMEN THAT WOULD COME OVER

AND PULLED THEIR CHAIRS

AROUND MY BED AS I LAID

THERE ALL CRIPPLED AND

TAUGHT ME THE HEALING WORD

OF GOD AND TAUGHT ME ABOUT

JESUS.

Reporter: IN 1997, 11

YEARS AFTER HER DIAGNOSIS,

WENDY PRAYED SHE WOULD BE IN

REMISSION LONG ENOUGH TO GO

ON AN INTERNATIONAL TRIP

WITH HER CHURCH.

THAT APRIL SHE WAS HEALTHY

ENOUGH TO TRAVEL AND JOINED

A GROUP FOR A HEALING

CRUSADE IN MADAGASCAR.

WE WERE IN A FIELD, A

BIG -- I'LL NEVER FORGET IT,

A BIG FIELD OF RED DIRT, IN

THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE.

THESE PEOPLE HAD WALKED FOR

MILES, MOST WITHOUT SHOES.

Reporter: THOUSANDS

CAME FOR PRAYER.

WENDY PRAYED FOR A SMALL BOY

WITH A BROKEN LEG.

WHEN SHE PRAYED, SOMETHING

HAPPENED TO WENDY THAT SHE

NEVER EXPECTED.

MY HANDS WERE STILL KIND

OF CRIPPLED, AND I WENT DOWN

AND PUT MY HANDS AROUND HIS

BROKEN TIBIA, AND THE ONLY

PRAYER I SAID WAS, GOD,

PLEASE HEAL THIS LITTLE BOY

IN JESUS' NAME.

THAT WAS IT, I FELT THAT

BONE GO BACK IN PLACE.

MY HANDS WERE ON FIRE, THEY

WERE TINGLING.

TEARS STARTED TO WELL UP IN

MY EYES.

HE LET GO OF HIS FRIEND'S

ARM, JUMPED UP AND DOWN,

SCREAMING HALLELUJAH,

HALLELUJAH.

BUT AT THAT SAME TIME, GOD

HAS LAID ON MY HEART AND MY

SPIRIT, YOU'RE HEALED,

WENDY.

SO I JUST ACCEPTED THAT.

Reporter: WENDY

BELIEVED THAT GOD HAD SPOKEN

TO HER, SO SHE DECIDED ON

THE FLIGHT HOME TO STOP

TAKING ALL OF HER MEDICINE.

AFTER THAT WHOLE CRUSADE,

I KNEW SOMETHING HAD

HAPPENED TO ME.

I JUST THANKED HIM DAY AND

NIGHT FOR MY HEALING, EVEN

THOUGH I DIDN'T FEEL IT

YET.

I JUST KEPT THANKING HIM.

Reporter: OVER THE NEXT

FEW MONTHS, WENDY SLOWLY

STARTED TO FEEL BETTER.

AFTER SIX MONTHS, SHE

VISITED HER DOCTOR FOR A

REMARKABLE CHECKUP.

HE SAID, I KNOW THIS

WASN'T MODERN MEDICINE.

IT WAS A MIRACLE, A DRAMATIC

AND REMARKABLE RECOVERY.

AND I SAID, I CALL IT

DR. JESUS.

SIX MONTHS LATER I WAS OUT

RIDING MY MOTORCYCLE AGAIN.

I WAS SKYDIVING.

I WAS DOING EVERYTHING I

USED TO DO 11 YEARS BEFORE

THAT.

Reporter: AFTER HER

HEALING, WENDY HAD A STRONG

DESIRE TO GO ON MORE MEDICAL

MISSION TRIPS.

SHE SOON GOT A STUNNING

PHONE CALL.

THE COMMO COMMONWEALTH

OF PENNSYLVANIA, A COUPLE OF

MONTHS AFTER THAT, HAD

CALLED ME AND TOLD ME MY

MEDICAL LICENSE HAD BEEN

REINSTATED BY A GRANDFATHER

CLAUSE BACK IN 1975.

SO GOD ALWAYS KNEW EY I

WANTED TO BE A DOCTOR OR A

DENTIST, AND SO NOW I WAS

GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO ALL

OF THESE THINGS OVERSEAS.

GOD ANSWERED MY HEART'S

DESIRE.

Reporter: SINCE HER

HEALING IN 1997, WENDY'S

M.S. HAS BEEN A DISTANT

MEMORY.

SHE HAS TRAVELLED TO OVER 37

COUNTRIES ON HEALTH CARE AND

DISASTER RELIEF TRIPS.

AND SHE WORKS IN FULL-TIME

MINISTRY.

SHE HAS RECORDED HER HEALING

JOURNEY IN A BOOK CALLED

"GOD'S MAD CAP MISSION."

HE HAS DONE EVERYTHING.

HE BROUGHT ME WHERE I COULD

NEVER HAVE GONE ON MY OWN.

I SHOUT MY TESTIMONY FROM

THE ROOFTOPS BECAUSE I WANT

EVERYBODY TO KNOW IT IS NOT

IMPOSSIBLE.

JUST KEEP YOUR FAITH IN

GOD.

Pat: A CENTURION SPOKE

TO JESUS AND SAID, SPEAK THE

WORD AND MY SERVANT WILL BE

HEALED.

RIGHT NOW, WE'VE JUST GOT A

FEW SECONDS BEFORE WE'VE GOT

TO SAY GOOD-BYE, AND I WANT

TO PRAY FOR YOU.

AND I WANT THE LORD TO SPEAK

A WORD TO YOU.

SPEAK THE WORD AND MY

SERVANT WILL BE HEALED.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER AND

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, IN THIS AUDIENCE

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE

SUFFERING, SOME WITH M.S.,

SOME WITH DIABETES, SOME,

OH, GOD, WITH CRIPPLING

ARTHRITIS, SOME WITH TIM

TREM MER TREMOURS IN THE

BRAIN.

ALL KIND OF MALADIES.

SPEAK THE WORLD, AND MY

SERVANT WILL BE HEALED.

AND WE SPEAK THE WORD NOW IN

THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OF

NAZARETH, BE MADE WHOLE.

TOUCH!

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, I WANT YOU

TO TAKE THAT HEALING AND I

WANT YOU TO PRAISE GOD AND

RECEIVE IT AND GIVE HIM

PRAISE AND THANKS.

AND WALK IT OUT.

AND THE DEVIL WILL SAY, NO

YOU REALLY DIDN'T GET

HEALED.

DON'T LISTEN TO HIM.

SAY YOU'RE A LIAR.

I BELIEVE THE REPORT OF THE

LORD.

HE DID IT.

I THANK YOU FOR JOINING US

ON THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

I WANT TO LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE, TAKEN

FROM THE PROPHET JEREMIAH

29: 11: "FOR I KNOW THE

THOUGHTS I THINK FOR YOU, OF

GOOD AND NOT EVIL, TO GIVE

YOU A FUTURE AND A HOPE."

THAT'S WHAT HE HAS FOR US, A

FUTURE AND A HOPE.

TOMORROW WE HAVE A DEVOUT

MUSLIM WHO DEFENDED ALLAH

UNTIL HE FOUND THE TRUE

GOD.

HE SHARES HIS STORY COMING

UP THIS FRIDAY.

UNTIL THEN, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON, FOR TERRY

MEEUWSEN AND ALL OF US HERE

AT "THE 700 CLUB," THANKS

FOR BEING WITH US.

PLEASE JOIN US AGAIN

TOMORROW, SAME TIME, SAME

STATION, ON ANOTHER EDITION
