The 700 Club - March 14, 2014

Evangelist Heidi Baker emphasizes the role that God's love plays in ministering on the local level. Plus Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger Duggar have branched out on their own to talk about "Growing Up Duggar.” Read Transcript


Gordon: COMING UP, "THE

700 CLUB" GETS A DOUBLE DOSE

OF REALITY TV.

FIRST...

WE'RE NOT TRYING TO

OFFEND ANYBODY.

Gordon:

"DUCK DYNASTY'S" WILLIE AND

CORYE ROBERTSON DISCUSS

THEIR NEW MOVIE.

PLUS, THEY SHARE WHAT IT IS

LIKE GROWING UP DUGGAR.

AND THEN, THE WOMAN WHO

TRANSFORMED A NATION BY

SURRENDERING HER LIFE.

ANYONE WHO DISCOVERS WHO

HE IS WOULD GIVE

EVERYTHING.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

KOWELL, WELCOME TO "THE 700

CLUB."

IT HAS BEEN A WEEK SINCE THE

MALAYSIAN AIRLINER VANISHED,

AND NOW THERE IS NEW

EVIDENCE SHOWING THAT THE

DISAPPEARANCE MAY NOT HAVE

BEEN AN ACCIDENT.

Terry: OFFICIALS SAY

THE INFORMATION SUGGESTS

THAT THE PLANE WAS IN THE

AIR FOR ANOTHER FOUR TO FIVE

HOURS AFTER THEY LOST

CONTACT.

AND NOW THE SEARCH FOR

DEBRIS IS BEING EXPANDED.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE SEARCH

ZONE HAS EXPANDED YET AGAIN

IN WHAT IS QUICKLY BECOMING

THE MOST EXPENSIVE AVIATION

INVESTIGATION EVER.

STILL, AUTHORITIES HAVE FEW

CLUES ABOUT WHERE THE

MALAYSIAN AIRLINE PLANE IS

OR WHY IT VANISHED.

WE HAVE EXPANDED OUR

SEARCH.

THE SECOND QUESTION IS: HOW

LONG WILL IT TAKE TO FIND

THE AIRCRAFT.

THAT COULD BE EXTENDED,

TOO.

Reporter: THE PLANE HAS

BEEN MISSING SINCE EARLY

LAST SATURDAY.

NASA AVIATION EXPERTS SAY

THAT MOUNTING EVIDENCE SHOWS

THAT ITS DISAPPEARANCE WAS

MOST LIKELY NOT AN

ACCIDENT.

LATE THURSDAY NIGHT, ABC

NEWS QUOTED TO AMERICAN

OFFICIALS SAYING THAT THE

U.S. BELIEVES THE PLANE'S

TWO COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS

WERE SHUT DOWN SEPARATELY.

THE POSSIBILITIES OF WHAT

DID ACTUALLY HAPPEN KEEP

GROWING.

INCLUDING THE CHANCES THAT A

PILOT WANTED TO COMMIT

SUICIDE OR SOMEONE WITH

FLYING EXPERIENCE WANTED TO

HIJACK THE PLANE FOR A LATER

PURPOSE.

NEW INFORMATION, AN

ADDITIONAL SEARCH AREA MAY

BE OPEN IN THE INDIAN

OCEAN.

Reporter: THEY HAVE

SEVERAL PINGS IN THE FOUR OR

FIVE HOURS AFTER THE LAST

TRANSPONDER SIGNAL.

THAT INDICATES THE PLANE WAS

STILL IN THE AIR, POSSIBLY

PUTTING IT OVER THE INDIAN

OCEAN.

THEY WILL BEGIN A SEARCH IN

THAT AREA.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: OUR HEARTS GO

OUT TO THE FAMILIES INVOLVED

IN THIS TRAGEDY, AND WE HOPE

THAT THEY FIND IT QUICKLY.

WELL, IN OTHER NEWS, THE

CRISIS IN UKRAINE IS FAR

FROM OVER.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE THE

RUSSIAN MILITARY IS MASSING

FOR MASSING FORCES ON THE

BORDER OF UKRAINE.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: GORDON, ON

SUNDAY VOTERS IN CRIMEA WILL

DECIDE WHETHER TO REMAIN

PART OF UKRAINE OR TO SPLIT

OFF AND JOIN RUSSIA.

THAT COULD HEIGHTEN THE

TENSIONS BETWEEN THE WEST

AND MOSCOW.

GEORGE THOMAS BRINGS US THIS

LOOK AT THE UPCOMING VOTE.

George: FROM THE

CORRIDORS OF WASHINGTON --

WE HAVE BEEN VERY FIRM IN

SAYING WE WILL STAND WITH

UKRAINE.

AND THE UKRAINIAN PEOPLE.

George: TO BERLIN,

GERMANY.

ONE THING HAS TO BE

ABSOLUTELY CLEAR: THE

TERRITORIAL INTEGRITY OF

UKRAINE IS NOT UP FOR

DISCUSSION.

George: TO KIEV,

UKRAINE.

WE FIGHT FOR OUR

FREEDOM.

WE FIGHT FOR OUR

INDEPENDENCE.

AND WE WILL NEVER

SURRENDER.

George: WESTERN LEADERS

ARE WARNING RUSSIA TO CHANGE

COURSE IN CRIMEA OR CHANGE

CONSEQUENCES.

WE CALL ON RUSSIA TO

CEASE ALL EXPLORATIONS.

George: BUT THE TOUGH

WORDS ARE HAVING LITTLE

IMPACT AS RUSSIA'S GRIP

TIGHTENS BY THE DAY.

SOME 20,000 FORCE HAVE

FANNED OUT ACROSS THE

CRIMEAN PENINSULA.

AND THE IDEA OF HOLDING A

CONSTITUTIONAL REFERENDUM OF

WHETHER UKRAINE SHOULD BE

PART OF RUSSIA OR THE

UKRAINE, MOST FOLKS ARE SET

AGAINST IT.

THERE IS STRENGTH IN

UNITY, BUT THIS ISSUE IS

DIVIDING US, AND THIS IS NOT

GOOD.

George: THE U.S. HAS

PLACED VISA BANS FOR THE

RUSSIAN OFFICIALS

RESPONSIBLE FOR VIOLATING

THE UKRAINE SOVEREIGNTY.

AND MORE SANCTIONS COULD BE

ON THE WAY.

IT COULD GET UGLY FAST IF

THE WRONG CHOICES ARE MADE.

George: AND ADDING TO

TENSIONS, RUSSIA IS HOLDING

ANOTHER ROUND OF MILITARY

EXERCISES, INVOLVING

THOUSANDS OF TROOPS.

THIS HAS KIEV'S NEW

GOVERNMENT VOTES TO FORM A

60-MAN MILITARY FORCE TO

BOOST ITS COUNTRY'S OFFENSES

AGAINST A FULL-SCALE

INVASION.

HERE AT HOME, NEW YORK

CITY PASTORS ARE A RALLYING

AROUND A NEW YORK CITY

CHURCH THAT LOST EVERYTHING

IN THE EXPLOSION IN EAST

HARLEM.

MINISTERS FROM ACROSS THE

CITY BEGAN HOLDING

ROUND-THE-CLOCK VIGILS.

HE TOLD CBN NEWS WHY THE

EFFORT IS SO IMPORTANT.

WE HAVE ALL GATHERED

TOGETHER TO SUPPORT PASTOR

THOMAS PEREZ.

HE IS AN OLDER GENTLEMAN, IN

HIS '70s, AND THE CHURCH

HAS BE THERE FOR 80 YEARS.

THEY ARE THE SALT AND LIGHT

HERE IN THE COMMUNITY.

THE PASTOR IS VERY

CONCERNED JUST ABOUT THE

FUTURE OF THE CHURCH, AND

WHAT IT IS GOING TO MEAN FOR

HIM AND WHERE IT IS GOING TO

GO.

Reporter: PASTOR THOMAS

PEREZ SAYS HIS CONGREGATION

DOES PLAN TO REBUILD ABOUT

20 CHURCHES.

60 MEMBERS LIVED IN THE

BUILDING AND ARE NOW

HOMELESS.

WELL, AMERICAN PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI HAS BEEN UNSHACKLED

IN IRAN AFTER AN OUTCRY.

PEOPLE TOOK TO Facebook

AND TWITTER TO COMPLAIN

ABOUT HIS SITUATION,

FOLLOWING REPORTS ABOUT HIS

LACK OF TREATMENT.

AFTER THAT, IRANIAN

OFFICIALS HAD HIM

UNSHACKLED.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE REPORTS HE HAS

BEEN ALLOWED TO STAY IN THE

HOSPITAL AND SEE FAMILY

MEMBERS WHO STILL LIVE IN

IRAN.

BUT HE HASN'T YET RECEIVED

THE MEDICAL ATTENTION HE

NEEDS FROM THE BEATINGS HE

SUFFERED WHILE IN PRISON.

THE IRANIAN NEW YEAR STARTS

NEXT WEEK, AND THE

GOVERNMENT HAS SAID CLEMENCY

IS POSSIBLE FOR SAEED.

TO MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD, GO

TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

GORDON, THIS IS A LONG AND

ONGOING SAGA FOR SAEED AND

HIS FAMILY, GOING ON TWO

YEARS THIS SUMMER.

Gordon: THE GOOD NEWS

IS IT SEEMS THAT IRAN IS

STARTING TO OPEN THE DOOR

THEY MAY BE WILLING TO

CHANGE THEIR MIND ON THIS.

LET ME ENCOURAGE YOU, GET

INVOLVED.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE IS HAVING A

PETITION DRIVE.

IT SEEMS TO HAVE GOTTEN HIM

AT LEAST HOSPITALIZATION.

BUT WE NEED TO GET HIS

FREEDOM.

SO IF YOU WANT TO BE

INVOLVED IN IT, ALL YOU HAVE

TO DO IS GO TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, ON TV,

THERE ARE DUCK HUNTERS.

IN THE MOVIE, THEY'RE

DEFENDERS OF THE FAITH.

WILLIE AND KORIE ROBERTSON

DISCUSS THEIR LATEST ROLES,

AND THAT'S NEXT.

Gordon: THE ROBERTSON

CLAN RECENTLY TOOK HOME THE

"FAITH IN FREEDOM" FOR THEIR

HIT REALITY TV SERIES.

NOW TWO MEMBERS OF THE "DUCK

DYNASTY" ARE ABOUT TO HIT

THE BIG SCREEN.

Reporter: THE

ROBERTSONS TURNED DUCK CALLSúñúñ

INTO A MULTI-MILLION EMPIRE,

INCLUDING A HIT TELEVISION

SERIES.

THE FAMILY'S FAITH IS AT THE

HEART OF THEIR SHOW, AND IT

IS FRONT AND CENTER IN HIS

NEW FILM.

IN THE PAPERS I'VE GIVEN

YOU ARE THREE LITTLE WORDS,

GOD IS DEAD.

Reporter: GOD'S NOT

DEAD STARS KEVIN OF HERCULES

FAME, AND WILLIE AND KORIE

ROBERTSON ARE IN THE SHOW.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO PEOPLE

WHO ARE OFFENDED BY THE

SHOW?

WE'RE NOT TRYING TO

OFFEND ANYBODY.

MY LIFE AND MY HOLY ETERNITY

BELONGS TO GOD.

JESUS, THAT'S ETERNAL.

Reporter: AND THAT'S

IT?

THAT'S IT.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING

WITH.

Gordon: WILLIE AND

KORIE ARE JOINING US VIA

SATELLITE FROM WEST MONROE,

LOUISIANA.

HI, COUSIN.

HOW ARE THE CLEAN-SHAVEN

ROBERTSONS UP THERE.

Gordon: I HEAR YOU HAVE

A FATHER WHO LIKES TO SPEAK

HIS MIND.

YEAH.

OLD PHIL, HE'LL LAY IT OUT

THERE.

HE'S NOT ASHAMED OF HIS

FAITH, AND NEITHER ARE THE

REST OF US.

AND WE LOOK AT THIS AS AN

OPPORTUNITY TO SPREAD THAT

FAITH.

AND BEING A PART OF THIS

MOVIE WAS PART OF THAT.

AND WHAT A GREAT MOVIE.

KORIE AND I WERE ABLE TO

WATCH IT.

IT IS A REALLY GOOD MOVIE.

I THINK PEOPLE WILL BE

SURPRISED AT HOW WELL IT IS

DONE AND THE MESSAGE IS

AWESOME.

I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL MARCH

31st.

Gordon: THAT'S WHEN THE

MOVIE ENDS.

HOW TRUE TO LIFE IS THE PLOT

OF THIS MOVIE?

THEY TAKE A LOT OF

SITUATIONS I THINK PEOPLE

DEAL WITH.

KORIE AND I GOT TO PLAY

OURSELVES, WHICH IS NICE,

AND TALK ABOUT OUR FAITH,

WHICH IS FAIRLY NATURAL.

I DID HAVE TO GET USED TO

STICKING WITH A SCRIPT.

I DID MY FIRST TAKE, AND

THEY SAID, WILLIE, THAT WAS

GREAT.

AND NOW LET'S TRY TO DO IT

THE WAY I WROTE IT.

HE HAD TO MEMORIZE IT.

Gordon: IT WASN'T AD

LIBBED, YOU WERE READING

FROM A SCRIPT?

THEY MADE IT NATURAL, BUT

THEY PUT SOME OF THE AD LIB

IN THERE.

WE THOUGHT THE SCRIPT WAS

PHENOMENAL.

SOME OF THE SITUATIONS --

IT'S JUST EVERYDAY STUFF.

I THOUGHT THEY DID A GREAT

JOB WITH THIS FILM.

Gordon: YOU TWO ARE

PARENTS, AND YOU'RE

OBVIOUSLY CONCERNED WITH

WHAT IS GOING ON WHEN

CHILDREN GO OFF TO SCHOOL.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO TRY TO

PREPARE THEM?

YOU KNOW, I THINK IT

COMES FROM TEACHING FROM A

YOUNG AGE.

AND JUST SEEING HOW WE

LIVE.

WE'VE NEVER BEEN ASHAMED OF

OUR FAITH, SO OUR KIDS

AREN'T, EITHER.

WE'RE REALLY PROUD OF HOW

THEY'RE GROWING UP, AND

SEEING THEM SHARE THEIR

FAITH AND REALLY USE THE

PLATFORM THAT THEY'VE BEEN

GIVEN FOR GOD IS REALLY

INCREDIBLE FOR US TO SEE.

Reporter: KORIE AND I

WERE MARRIED YOUNG, 19 AND

18, SO I PRACTICALLY RAISED

HER.

SO SHE WAS LIKE MY FIRST

CHILD I RAISED, AND SHE

TURNED OUT GOOD.

OH, MY.

AND THE REST ARE FALLING

IN GOOD AS WELL.

Gordon: WILLIE, I HATE

TO BREAK IT TO YOU, BUT I

THINK IT IS THE OTHER WAY

AROUND.

YEAH, THANK YOU.

Gordon: HAVE YOUR

CHILDREN SEEN THE FILM?

YES.

WE ACTUALLY HAD A BIG

PREVIEW PARTY LAST WEEK.

WE INVITED EVERYBODY FROM

DUCK COMMANDER OFFICE, AND

THE WHOLE FAMILY CAME OUT.

AND WE FILLED UP A THEATER

AND REALLY HAD A GREAT

TIME.

WE LET THE KIDS INVITE

FRIENDS.

IT IS A REALLY, REALLY GREAT

MOVIE.

WE'RE VERY PROUD TO BE A

PART OF IT.

AND WE ALL WENT TO SEE

"SON OF GOD" TOGETHER AND

THE ADVERTISEMENT FOR "GOD'S

NOT DEAD" CAME ON.

THAT WAS SURREAL BECAUSE I

WASN'T EXPECTING THAT.

I THOUGHT, THIS IS GETTING

WEIRD, WHENEVER YOU'RE

SEEING YOURSELF ON THE BIG

SCREEN.

THAT'S A GREAT MOVIE.

IT IS A GREAT YEAR FOR

FAITH-BASED MOVIES.

WE JUST HAPPEN TO BE A PART

OF IT.

Gordon: IT IS.

AND IT IS ALSO A GREAT YEAR

FOR FAITH-BASED TELEVISION.

AND THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU'RE

DOING.

YOU HAVE REALLY RAISED THE

BAR ON HOW INFLUENTIAL

CHRISTIAN TELEVISION CAN

BE.

THANK YOU FOR THAT.

DO YOU GUYS HAVE ANY PLANS

TO DO A MOVIE OF YOUR OWN?

I DON'T KNOW.

WE'LL KEEP LOOKING AT

OPPORTUNITIES AS THEY COME

ALONG.

WE DO A LOT OF FILMING, SO

IT IS KIND OF TOUGH TO FIT

ALL OF THIS FILMING IN.

WHO KNOWS.

WE'RE INTERESTED NOW IN

BEING A PART OF THAT, BEING

OUT IN LOS ANGELES FOR THE

AWARDS AS WELL.

THAT WAS NEAT TO SEE.

WE DID "LAST MAN STANDING"

ON ABC.

AND WE'RE ENCOURAGED BY ALL

OF THIS.

WE'RE GLAD GOD PUT US IN THE

ROLE AND WE'RE GOING TO TRY

TO DO THE BEST WE CAN.

Gordon: AGAIN, THANK

YOU FOR ALL YOU DO.

AS THE SON OF A FATHER WHO

LIKES TO SPEAK HIS MIND, I

FEEL YOU.

[LAUGHTER]

Gordon: I KNOW WHAT IT

IS LIKE FOR THE WHOLE

FAMILY, AND YOU'VE GOT TO

HAVE THE FAMILY MEETINGS AND

SAY, THIS IS THE LATEST.

THAT MADE CHRISTMAS VERY

INTERESTING LAST YEAR.

Gordon: ANYWAY, STAND

STRONG.

I KNOW YOU ARE.

AND WE APPRECIATE YOU.

YOU'VE GOT US IN YOUR

CORNER.

WELL, "GOD IS NOT DEAD"

OPENS IN THEATERS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY ON MARCH 21st.

TO FIND OUT WHERE IT WILL BE

PLAYING IN YOUR AREA, GO TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

Terry: COMING UP, WE'RE

GOING FROM DUCKS TO

DUGGARS.

AMERICA'S GIRLS FROM THE

FAMOUS SUPER SIZED FAMILY

JOIN US LIVE IN THE STUDIO.

DON'T GO AWAY.

Terry: TALK ABOUT A

FULL QUIVER, THE DUGGAR CLAN

FEATURES 19 CHILDREN, ALL OF

THEIR NAMES START WITH THE

LETTER "J," AND WHILE

CAMERAS HAVE FILMED THE

FAMILY FOR THE LAST 10

YEARS, VIEWERS HAVE REALLY

HAD THE CHANCE TO SEE WHAT

IT IS LIKE TO BE A DUGGAR

ONLY RECENTLY.

Reporter: IF YOU THINK

YOUR FAMILY LIFE IS HECTIC,

YOU SHOULD MEET THIS FAMILY

OF 21.

THEY'RE THE DUGGARS, STARS

OF T.L.C.'s HIT REALITY

SHOW "19 KIDS AND

COUNTING."

THEY ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR

CONSERVATIVE BELIEFS AND

UNIQUE LIFESTYLE.

IN "GROWING UP DUGGAR," THE

FOUR OLDEST GIRLS GIVE AN

INSIDE LOOK TO WHAT LIFE IS

LIKE IN A HUGE FAMILY, AND

WHAT THEY DO TO KEEP THEIR

RELATIONSHIPS STRONG.

Terry: JOINING US NOW

ARE THE FOU FOUR ELDEST

DAUGHTER, JANA, JILL, JESSA,

AND JINGER.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU ALL

WITH US.

I GET CONFUSED WHEN THEY DO

THE RUNDOWN OF YOUR FAMILY

AND WHO IS WHO.

DO YOU EVER LOSE TRACK OF

EACH OTHER?

OCCASIONALLY.

Terry: OCCASIONALLY.

IT SEEMS TO ME LIKE YOU ALL

HAVE A REAL SYSTEM GOING IN

YOUR FAMILY.

AND THAT'S ONE OF THE

REASONS THAT IT SEEMS TO

WORK SO WELL.

HERE YOU ARE THE FOUR OLDEST

GIRLS IN THE FAMILY, SO

YOU'VE BEEN REALLY INVOLVED

IN HOW THE FAMILY RUNS AND

COMING ALONGSIDE YOUR MOM

AND YOUR DAD AND THINGS.

THERE IS A KIND OF A BUDDY

SYSTEM, IS THAT RIGHT?

JANA, HOW DOES THAT WORK?

YES, MA'AM.

WE EACH HAVE WHAT WE CALL A

LITTLE BUDDY OR A COUPLE OF

THEM.

Terry: I WAS GOING TO

SAY THERE IS AT LEAST A

COUPLE.

WE'RE FOUR OLDER GIRLS

AND WE HAVE SOME OF THE

YOUNGER ONES THAT WE HELP

WITH KEEPING AN EYE ON THEM

WHENEVER WE'RE OUT AND ABOUT

IN A LARGE CROWD.

OR IN THE MORNING, HELPING

THEM PICK OUT THEIR OUTFIT

AND STRAIGHTEN THEIR HAIR.

Terry: ARE THEY AS

COOPERATIVE AS THEY LOOK ON

TELEVISION?

PRETTY MUCH.

YEAH.

THEY'RE FAIRLY

WELL-BEHAVED.

Terry: ONE OF THE

THINGS I MARVEL AT IS YOUR

MOM SEEMS SO EVEN-TEMPERED.

IN ALL OF THE TIMES I'VE

WATCHED THE SHOW, I'VE NEVER

HEARD HER RAISE HER VOICE.

IS SHE REALLY LIKE THAT?

PRETTY MUCH.

WHEN WE WERE YOUNGER, SHE

PURPOSELY LOWERED HER VOICE

INSTEAD OF RAISING IT.

WE KNEW IF WE WERE IN

TROUBLE, SHE WAS WHISPERING

AT US.

Terry: WELL, JESSA, IN

THE MIDDLE OF ALL OF THIS,

AS YOU ALL HAVE CARED FOR

YOUR YOUNGER SIBLINGS, DO

YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE KIND OF

LEARNING HOW TO PARENT

YOURSELVES IN THE PROCESS?

WE HAVE LEARNED A LOT

FROM WATCHING OUR PARENTS'

EXAMPLE.

THEY ARE GREAT PARENTS.

THEY DO TAKE TIME FOR US

INDIVIDUALLY.

ON A REGULAR BASIS, THEY

COME TO EACH ONE OF US KIDS

AND ASK US, WHAT'S ON YOUR

HEART?

HOW ARE YOU DOING?

Terry: HOW DOES THAT

WORK?

I HAVE SEVEN KIDS, AND MY

KIDS ARE -- THE OLDEST ONES

ARE A LITTLE OLDER THAN SOME

OF YOU, BUT, I MEAN, IT'S

HARD TO FIND THAT KIND OF

TIME.

DO YOU SCHEDULE THAT IN?

HOW DOES A PARENT FOCUS ON

19 CHILDREN?

USUALLY WE TAKE SATURDAYS

AS FAMILY DAY, AND THEY HAVE

HEART TO HEART TALKS WITH

EACH ONE OF THEM.

Terry: EACH ONE OF

YOU.

WELL, THERE GOES TO THE

DAY.

AND IF MY MOM GOES TO THE

GROCERY STORE, SHE'LL TAKE

ONE OF THE KIDS AND ASK THEM

QUESTIONS AND HOW ARE THINGS

GOING.

AND WE WERE ALL

HOME-SCHOOLED, AND THAT

HELPS, TOO, BECAUSE IT

PROVIDES MORE TIME.

Terry: DID YOU LIKE

HOME-SCHOOLING, JINGER?

IT WAS SUCH A BLESSING.

BECAUSE THERE WAS MORE TIME

WITH MOM AND DAD AND REALLY

BUILDING THOSE RELATIONSHIPS

AT HOME.

WHEN YOU CAN GET ALONG WITH

YOUR FAMILY, YOU CAN GET

ALONG WITH JUST ABOUT

EVERYBODY.

Terry: WELL, THAT'S THE

TRUTH, ISN'T IT.

SOMETIMES IN THE HOME IT'S

THE HARDEST.

JANA, TALK ABOUT -- EVERY

FAMILY -- YOU ALL SAID A

MINUTE AGO WE'RE NOT

PERFECT.

EVERY FAMILY HAS

DISAGREEMENTS OR DAYS WHERE

THEY'RE JUST KIND OF OFF.

HOW DO YOU HANDLE THAT IN

YOUR FAMILY IN A POSITIVE

WAY?

OUR PARENTS HAVE REALLY

ENCOURAGED US FROM WHEN WE

WERE LITTLE KIDS TO ALWAYS

MAKE THINGS RIGHT.

ASK FOR FORGIVENESS.

MY MOM ALWAYS SAYS, YOU WILL

NEVER GO WRONG IF YOU HUMBLE

YOURSELF.

AND WHEN WE ARE HAVING THOSE

BAD ATTITUDES OR THE

DIFFERENT ONES THAT ARE JUST

IRRITATED AND STUFF, SWEETLY

TALK TO THEM.

OR JUST REALLY LISTEN TO

THAT PERSON THAT IS TRYING

TO ENCOURAGE US TO HAVE A

BETTER ATTITUDE.

AND JUST ASK FOR

FORGIVENESS.

REALIZING WE ALL HAVE THOSE

MOMENTS, AND YOU NEED TO

MAKE THOSE THINGS RIGHT.

Terry: YOU SEEM TO HAVE

BEEN ABLE, AS A FAMILY, TO

BUILD A KIND OF A TEAM

SPIRIT AMONGST YOURSELVES.

WHERE IT IS EACH FOR EACH

OTHER, AND ALL FOR THE

LORD.

THAT'S PRETTY AMAZING AS A

FAMILY.

TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT

COURTSHIP AND DATING,

BECAUSE WE ALL WATCHED YOUR

BROTHER AND SISTER-IN-LAW AS

THEY WERE COURTING AND THEN

MARRIED.

TALK A LITTLE BIT, IF YOU

WILL, JILL, ABOUT THAT

CONCEPT.

WHAT THE DIFFERENCE IS

BETWEEN COURTSHIP AND

DATING?

THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS

WE TALK ABOUT IN "GROWING UP

DUGGAR," THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN COURTSHIP AND

DATING.

OR AS WE LIKE TO CALL IT,

DATING WITH A PURPOSE.

JESS IS ACTUALLY IN A

COURTSHIP RIGHT NOW.

Terry: WE'LL TALK TO

YOU NEXT.

AND GIRLS OFTENTIMES LIKE

TO TALK ABOUT GUYS.

SO IN OUR BOOK, "GROWING UP

DUGGAR," WE GIVE GIRLS MORE

OF AN INSIGHT, AND SOMETHING

THEY SHOULD THINK ABOUT IS

NOT JUST THE OUTWARD

APPEARANCE, AND, OH, THAT

GUY IS CUTE.

THAT'S IMPORTANT, TOO, BUT

REALLY LOOKING AT THE INSIDE

CHARACTER, THE HEART OF THE

MATTER, AND THINKING HOW IS

THE GUY GOING TO BE AS A

FATHER.

IS HE GOING TO BE SLOW TO

ANGER?

IS HE GOING TO HAVE LOVE FOR

THE LORD?

IS HE GOING TO BE A

SPIRITUAL LEADER?

Terry: THAT WAS SO

WISE.

I THOUGHT, THAT'S A REALLY

GOOD INSIGHT, NOT SO MUCH

THE EXTERIOR AS OBSERVING

THE KIND OF PERSON.

AND NOT PUTTING THIS LIST

UP FOR ALL OF THE GUYS, BUT

WHATEVER YOU HOLD THAT GUY

FOR, YOU NEED TO BE ALSO

LOOKING FOR IN YOURSELF.

WE TALK ABOUT THAT AS WELL.

Terry: OKAY, JESSA,

SPILL THE BEANS.

HOW DID YOU KNOW THIS IS A

GUY YOU WANTED TO BE IN A

COURTSHIP RELATIONSHIP

WITH?

I WAS IMPRESSED WITH HIS

CHARACTER FOR THE FIRST TIME

I MET HIM.

HE JUST HAS SUCH A HEART FOR

THE LORD AND MINISTRY.

SO I WAS VERY IMPRESSED BY

HIM, LIKE, RIGHT OFF.

AND THE MORE TIME I GOT TO

SPEND WITH HIM, I THOUGHT,

WOW, I THINK THIS IS THE ONE

FOR ME.

Terry: THAT'S AWESOME.

JINGER TALK A LITTLE BIT

ABOUT WHAT YOU ALL WANT

PEOPLE TO TAKE AWAY WHEN

THEY FINISH READING "GROWING

UP DUGGAR."

WHAT'S THE TAKE-AWAY FOR

PEOPLE?

I THINK DEFINITELY THE

MOST IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIP

IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH

THE LORD.

BUT THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE

KIND OF LIKE IN EVERY

RELATIONSHIP -- ALSO THE

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOURSELF.

WHEN WE CAN VIEW YOURSELF

THE WAY GOD MADE US AND

ACCEPT THE UNCHANGEABLE

THINGS, WE CAN ACCEPT

CHRIST'S LOVE AND WE'LL BE

ABLE TO RELATE TO OTHER

PEOPLE.

Terry: FOR FOUR YOUNG

PEOPLE, THERE IS A LOT GOOD

THINGS THEIR BOOK.

IT IS CALLED "GROWING UP

DUGGAR," AND IT'S AVAILABLE

IN STORES NATIONWIDE.

THE 18th SEASON APPEARS ON

TUESDAY, APRIL THE 1st.

TO HEAR MORE FROM THE GIRLS,

WE HAVE AN EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW CALLED "IN THE

GREEN ROOM," AND YOU'LL FIND

THAT THERE.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MOREpo

AFTER THIS.

IT'S A WONDERFUL BOOK.

WELL-DONE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

Gordon: COMING UP, A

MODERN-DAY MOTHER TERESA.

HEAR WHAT TOOK A GIRL FROM

THE BEACHES OF CALIFORNIA TO

THE WAR ZONE IN MOZAMBIQUE.

LATER ON TODAY'S SHOW.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

A LONG TIME DEFENDER OF

GLOBAL RELIGIOUS RIGHTS HAS

DIED AT HIS HOME IN

ILLINOIS.

REVEREND KEITH ROBERT WAS

GENERAL SECRETARY OF THE

COALITION FOR THE DEFENSE OF

HUMAN RIGHTS.

HE WAS A LONG TIME ADVOCATE

FOR PRESS RELIGIOUS

MINORITIES.

HE SPENT MUCH OF HIS TIME IN

RECENT YEARS LOBBYING

CONGRESS ON BEHALF OF

SUFFERING CHRISTIANS IN

COUNTRIES LIKE IRAQ AND

SUDAN.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

BRINGING RELIEF TO A

IMPOVERISHED COMMUNITY IN

HAITI.

MANY FAMILIES MAKE THEIR

LIVELIHOOD AS FISHERMEN.

BUT YEARS OF FISHING HAVE

LEFT THE LAKE DEPLETED AND

FAMILIES STRUGGLING TO MAKE

ENDS MEET.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

RESTOCKING THAT AND OTHER

LAKES ALL OVER HAITI WITH

MILLIONS OF BABY TALAPIA.

TEAMS ALSO HELPED TO BUILD A

NEW SCHOOL WHERE CHILDREN

ARE RECEIVING AN EDUCATION,

AS WELL AS DAILY BREAKFAST

AND LUNCH.

YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND OUT MORE

ABOUT "OPERATION BLESSING"

BY GOING TO ITS WEBSITE,

OB.ORG.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

.

Gordon: HEIDI BAKER'S

STORY STRETCHES ACROSS FOUR

CONTINENTS, OVER THE COURSE

OF 20 YEARS.

IT HAS TAKEN HER FROM THE

IVY LEAGUE TO MOZAMBIQUE AND

PRACTICALLY EVERYWHERE IN

BETWEEN.

WHY DID SHE TAKE THIS

JOURNEY?

IT IS BECAUSE SHE WAS

COMPELLED BY LOVE.

TAKE A LOOK.

GOD IS LOOKING FOR

FRIENDS.

HEIDI'S LIFE IS INFECTIOUS.

IT IS AN ONGOING EXPERIENCE

WITH DIFFERENT NUANCES EVERY

SINGLE DAY.

ANYONE -- ANYONE THAT

DISCOVERS WHO HE IS WOULD

GIVE EVERYTHING.

HE IS THE PEARL OF GREAT

PRIZE.

HE IS THE LOVER OF OUR

SOULS.

HE IS BEAUTY ITSELF.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

FROM KAY TOWN TO CAIRO.

NOT BY MITE MIGHT, NOT

BY POWER, BUT BY THE SPIRIT

OF THE LORD.

WILL YOU FULFILL YOUR

DESTINY.

BY BECOMING NOTHING, YOU

BECOME HIM.

Gordon: HEIDI BAKER IS

WITH US NOW.

HEIDI, IT IS A JOY TO HAVE

YOU.

WELCOME BACK.

I THOUGHT I KNEW YOU, AND

I'M WATCHING THIS MOVIE AND

I'M GOING, I DIDN'T KNOW

THAT.

YOUR FIRST COMMUNION, YOU

FELL OUT.

I IMAGINE THAT WAS AN

UNUSUAL EXPERIENCE FOR THAT

CHURCH.

THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN IT

BEFORE.

Gordon: DID YOU KNOW

WHAT WAS HAPPENING?

OH, NO.

I HAD NEVER HEARD OF

ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

IT WAS AN EPISCOPALIAN

CHURCH IN SAN CLEMENTE, AND

I REMEMBER FATHER GREEN

SAYING, SOMETIMES THIS

HAPPENS.

SHE JUST FAINTED.

SHE WAS OVERWHELMED.

GOD JUST KNOCKED ME OUT IN

THE SPIRIT.

Gordon: HOW OLD WERE

YOU?

I WAS 12.

AND I WASN'T EVEN BORN AGAIN

YET.

SO HOW THAT WORKS THEATER

THEOLOGICALLY, I DON'T

KNOW.

Gordon: I KNOW.

I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT ON

ALL FLESH.

ON ALL FLESH.

I TOOK COMMUNION AND BAM, I

FELL OUT.

Gordon: WHAT DID THAT

CREATE IN YOU?

JUST A GREAT HUNGER.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT, BUT I

HAVE HAD THIS DESPERATE

DESIRE FOR GOD, EVEN BEFORE

I KNEW HIM.

I JUST WANTED TO BE WITH

HIM.

I WOULD SING TO HIM.

BEFORE I KNEW JESUS

PERSONALLY, I WOULD SING TO

GOD.

I WOULD WORSHIP HIM.

I WOULD SING OUT AND LOVE ON

HIM.

Gordon: THAT'S JUST

HARD, I THINK, FOR MOST

PEOPLE TO REALLY COMPREHEND

HAD KIND OF -- LITERALLY,

THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFE YOU

WERE SPIRITUALLY AWARE AND

HAD THAT HUNGER AND WERE

LOOKING.

AND A LIFE OF DEDICATION.

THAT WAS YOUR SINGULAR

PURSUIT.

THAT WAS YOU.

IT WAS.

IT MIGHT HAVE TO DO WITH THE

FACT THAT MY PARENTS, WHO

WERE ALSO NOT BORN AGAIN --

MY FATHER'S FAMILY WERE

JEWISH, AND THEY BECAME

CATHOLIC AND THEN BECAME AN

AGNOSTIC AT STANFORD.

THEY WERE ALL IN A DIFFERENT

REALM.

THEY DEDICATED ME TO JESUS.

THEY SAID, JESUS, YOU CAN

TAKE HER BECAUSE MY BROTHER

JUST DIED AND I WAS SIX

WEEKS IN THE HOSPITAL.

I WAS AT SAINT JOSEPH'S WITH

MENINGITIS, AND SO THEY SAID

YOU CAN HAVE HER.

AND I LED MY PARENTS TO

JESUS.

Gordon: SO YOU'RE A

SAMUEL.

I WAS.

Gordon: YOU WERE

DEDICATED.

I WAS.

Gordon: AND GOD HONORS

THAT.

RIGHT.

Gordon: I BELIEVE IN

DEDICATING YOUR CHILDREN.

I THINK IT IS A COVENANT

THAT GOD LOVES TO HONOR.

YEAH.

Gordon: YOU DO UNUSUAL

THINGS.

YOU GO ON MISSION TRIPS WITH

NO MONEY.

GOD TELLS YOU IN THE MORNING

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO GET ON AN

AIRPLANE, AND THAT AFTERNOON

YOU'RE ON THAT AIRPLANE WITH

NO MONEY.

YEAH.

WELL, THAT WAS IN MY

TEENAGED YEARS.

Gordon: YOU DON'T DO

THAT ANYMORE?

NOW I JUST GET ON

PLANES.

I HAVE A TICKET, BUT I DO

PRAY FOR GOOD SEATS.

Gordon: YOU PRAY FOR

LEG ROOM?

I PRAY FOR LEG ROOM,

YEAH.

I STARTED OFF WHEREVER GOD

WOULD TELL ME TO GO.

I WAS AT UNIVERSITY, SO I

DIDN'T HAVE A LOT OF EXTRA

FUNDS.

AND I WOULD HEAR GOD SAY, GO

TO ENGLAND, GO TO MEXICO, GO

WHEREVER.

I WOULD JUST GO TO THE

AIRPORT, AND I WOULD WAIT

AND PRAY.

SOMETIMES GOD WOULD SEND

PROPHETS TO THE AIRPORT, AND

THEY WOULD SAY, HI, HEIDI.

GOD TOLD US YOU WOULD BE

HERE.

AND PEOPLE WOULD WALK UP IN

THE LINE AND HAND ME MONEY,

AND THE LORD TOLD ME NOT TO

TELL PEOPLE WHAT I NEEDED.

SOWOULD JUST BE WAITING,

AND THERE IS NEVER A TRIP

THAT GOD TOLD ME TO GO ON

THAT I DIDN'T GET ON A

PLANE.

Gordon: DO YOU VIEW

THAT AS SORT OF A TRAINING

PERIOD?

ABSOLUTELY.

Gordon: THAT IF YOU CAN

REALLY BELIEVE AND TRUST IN

WHAT MAY LOOK LIKE TO YOU

TODAY A SMALL THING, AT THE

TIME IT WAS HUGE.

IT WAS HUGE.

Gordon: BUT IT MAY LOOK

LIKE A SMALL THING.

IS IT JUST GETTING YOU

PREPARED FOR THE BIGGER?

ABSOLUTELY.

LIKE BACK THEN, PREPARING,

JUST BELIEVING GOD FOR DAILY

BREAD FOR ME.

AND THEN BELIEVING GOD FOR

DAILY BREAD FOFAMILY

OF FOUR.

AND NOW BELIEVING GOD FOR

DAILY BREAD FOR 20,000

PEOPLE.

IT'S ALL OF THE SAME THING

BECAUSE IT ISWHO

PROVIDES IT.

AND IT IS YOU LIVING IN THAT

SECRET PLACE.

AND IT IS, OKAY, JESUS, TAKE

CARE OF ME.

I CAN'T DO IT MYSELF.

ICAN'T PROVIDE IT MYSELF.

I KNOW WE WORK.

OF COURSE WE ALL WORK.

Gordon: WE DO THE

POSSIBLE.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Gordon: WE DO THE

POSSIBLE, AND I LIKE TO

PRAY, OKAY, I'VE DONE THAT.

NOW, GOD, IT'S YOUR TURN.

AND YOU DO THE IMPOSSIBLE.

AND HE MAKES BREAD FOR

US.

HE MULTIPLIES FOOD.

HE SENDS TRUCKS.

HE SENT A FREIGHTER SHIP ONE

TIME, A WHOLE FREIGHTER SHIP

FULL OF FOOD.

YOU LIVE IN THAT REALM, AND

GOD MOVES IN A WAY WE CAN'T

UNDERSTAND.

THE GOD, HOLY SPIRIT,

BREATHED ME.

Gordon: I LIKE TO TELL

MY PEOPLE AROUND HERE, THE

ONLY THING THAT HAS CHANGED

IS THE ZEROS.

IT IS ALL THE SAME.

WE STILL NEED TO BE IN

ATTITUDE WE'RE IN TOTAL

DEPENDENCE ON HIM.

WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING TO DO

IS IMPOSSIBLE.

SO GOD CAN DO THAT.

YES.

Gordon: AND HOW BIG IS

THAT?

HOW BIG IS THAT POSSIBLE?

AND WE CAN'T JUST GROW UP

AND SAY, WELL, NOW I HAVE

IT.

NOW I'M GOOD.

WE HAVE TO GROW DOWN AND

STAY CHILD-LIKE.

WE HAVE TO STAY LIKE THAT

CHILD WHO JUST TRUSTS DADDY

EVERY DAY.

EVERY DAY TRUST DADDY.

IT DOESN'T MATTER IF IT IS

ONE OR 100,000 PEOPLE THAT

YOU'RE FEEDING.

WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING, IT IS

TRUSTING DADDY GOD.

POSITIONING YOURSELF FOR THE

MIRACLE.

POSITIONING YOURSELF TO MOVE

IN THE SUPER NATURAL.

WE HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THAT.

Gordon: WHAT IS YOUR

BREAKTHROUGH.

YOU CAN HAVE WHAT I CALL

FINANCIAL PROVISION.

MIRACLES OF PROVISION, AND

MIRACLES OF MULTIPLICATION.

BUT IT SEEMS LIKE ONCE YOU

GET COMFORTABLE YOU WANT TO

STAY THERE.

YOU'VE BROKEN OUT TO OKAY,

GOD, WHATEVER.

WHAT WAS THE BREAKTHROUGH?

THE FIRST TIME I EVER SAW

FOOD MULTIPLY WAS A HUGE

BREAKTHROUGH.

I WAS IN MOZAMBIQUE, WHERE I

STILL LIVE TODAY.

WE'VE BEEN THERE ALMOST 20

YEARS NOW, LIVING IN

MOZAMBIQUE.

THE GOVERNMENT HAD JUST

TAKEN ALL OF OUR BUILDINGS.

AND WE HAD 320 KIDS.

ABOUT 100 OF THEM HAD WALKED

27 KILOMETRES TO OUR LITTLE

OFFICE.

AND WE HAD NO FEED.

AND I WAS EXHAUSTED.

I DIDN'T FEEL FULL OF GOD.

I JUST FELT EXHAUSTED.

I WAS PRETTY MUCH ANGRY.

I FELT LIKE SCREAMING.

I HASN'T SLEPT IN DAYS.

I HADN'T EATEN IN DAYS.

MY TWO TOE, BLONDE KIDS WERE

HUNGRY.

AND I WAS NOT A HAPPY

PERSON.

AND ALL OF THESE CHILDREN

WERE THERE.

AND I FELT LIKE SAYING, GO

AWAY.

OF COURSE I DIDN'T SAY

THAT.

BUT I WANTED TO.

JUST GO AWAY.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY FOOD.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY BUILDING.

Gordon: YOU WANTED TO

GO AWAY.

I COULD GO AWAY.

I COULD HAVE STOOD IN AN

AIRPORT AND GOT ON A PLANE.

AT THAT TIME I EVEN HAD A

CREDIT CARD.

BUT WHAT I DID WAS, I JUST

CRIED OUT TO GOD.

AND THIS LADY CALLED ME FROM

THE U.S. EMBASSY.

AND HER NAME WAS NELDA, AND

SHE SAID, I MADE FOOD FOR

YOU.

THANK YOU.

IT WAS, LIKE, COME ON OVER.

IT WAS CHILE AND RU-486. RICE, AND IT WAS A GENEROUS

PORTION.

I SAID, NELDA, I HAVE A LOT

OF CHILDREN.

SHE WAS MORE UPSET THAN ME.

SHE SAID, I DON'T WANT YOU

TO SHOW ME THOSE KIDS.

YOU KNOW HOW MUCH FOOD

THERE.

AND I SAID, NO.

YOU JUST PRAY RIGHT NOW.

AND OPENED THE DOOR, AND I

DID NOT GIVE HER WHAT SHE

WANTED.

I MADE HER LOOK AT THOSE

KIDS.

I SAID, HERE ARE MY

CHILDREN, THEY'RE RIGHT

HERE, AND THEY'RE HUNGRY.

I SAID, LET'S JUST PRAY OVER

THIS FOOD.

AND NELDA WAS SO TICKED AT

ME.

GOD BLESS IT, AMEN.

AND I WAS THERE WITH MY

OLDER, ADOPTED KIDS.

AND WE STARTED SERVING IN

THESE PLASTIC PLATES, AND

EVERY SINGLE CHILD ATE A BIG

PORTION.

A LOT OF RICE, AND EVERYBODY

ATE.

AND I SAID, NELDA, WOULD YOU

LIKE SOME FOOD?

AND SHE CRIED.

SHE BALLED LIKE A BABY.

THAT'S WHEN THINGS SHIFTED

FOR ME.

BECAUSE GOD CAN MAKE FOOD.

ANOTHER TIME WAS DURING THE

FLOODS, WHEN WE WERE FEEDING

5,000 A DAY, AND THEN 10,000

A DAY, AND 15,000 A DAY.

I WAS IN MY OFFICE JUST

PRAYING, AND A GUY CALLED I

DIDN'T KNOW.

AND HE SAID, ARE YOU HEIDI

BAKER?

AND I SAID, YES.

AND HE SAID, I HAVE A

FREIGHTER SHIP FULL OF FOOD

FOR YOU.

THAT BLEW MY MIND, A

FREIGHTER SHIP.

AND WHEN I WASON THE STREET

MINISTERING, THEY CAME AND

GAVE ME KEYS TO A

WAREHOUSE.

SO I HAVE A BELIEF FOR ANY

AMOUNT OF FOOD.

Gordon: WHAT WOULD YOU

TELL ANYBODY WATCHING RIGHT

NOW, AND MAYBE THEY WERE

DEDICATED, AND THEY MAY BE

RIGHT NOW SAYING CAN I REAL

TRUST, AND CAN I TRUST GOD

WITH EVERYTHING?

BECAUSE THE PULL, I BELIEVE,

IN WESTERN CULTURES IS BE

SENSIBLE.

HAVE A CAREER.

LIVE THE -- I GUESS THE SAFE

TRACK, IF YOU WILL.

WHAT WOULD YOU TELL THEM?

I SAY JUST THROW YOURSELF

AT JESUS' FEET.

LOSE YOUR LIFE AND YOU'LL

FIND IT.

AND IF GOD HAS A CAREER FOR

YOU, IT ALL HAPPENS AT HIS

FEET.

WHY IS IT EITHER OR?

YOU MAY BE CALLED TO BE A

FAMOUS SURGEON.

YOU MAY BE CALLED TO BE A

PRIMA BALLERINA.

BUT THROW YOUR LIFE AT HIS

FEET.

CLING TO HIM.

LOVE ON HIM.

HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE

THAT IS WAY BETTER THAN YOUR

OWN PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.

SO ITSELF SAYING I'M GOING

TO DIE, WE DIE DAILY.

BUT AS WE LAY DOWN, WE FIND

OUT WHO WE ARE IN THE

PRESENCE.

SO JUST GIVE YOURSELF AWAY.

THAT'S HOW LIFE IS

MULTIPLIED.

Gordon: IT IS PART OF

THE GOSPEL.

"FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD

THAT HE GAVE..." AND IF

WE'RE COMPELLED BY LOVE,

WE'LL DO THE SAME THING.

WE'LL GIVE OURSELVES AWAY.

IT IS GREAT BEING WITH YOU.

WE COULD TALK FOR A LONG

TIME, AND PROBABLY WILL

AFTER THIS PROGRAM.

THE DOCUMENTARY IS CALLED

"COMPELLED BY LOVE."

YOU CAN FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN

WATCH IT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

cbn.com, AND WE'LL SHOW YOU

HOW YOU CAN BE PART OF IT.

AND HEIDI IS GOING TO BE

WITH US FOR A SPECIAL CHAPEL

OVER AT REGENT UNIVERSITY.

SO IF YOU WANT TO WATCH THAT

ONLINE, YOU CAN.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: UP NEXT, WE'RE

GOING TO HEAD TO THE WEST

COAST OF AFRICA WHERE A

LITTLE GIRL WAS SUFFERING

FROM MALARIA.

WE WANT YOU TO HEAR HOW SHE

WAS SAVED.

THAT'S NEXT.

Terry: IN AFRICA,

MALARIA CLAIMS THE LIFE OF

ONE CHILD EVERY MINUTE.

A LITTLE GIRL NAMED LUCY

MIGHT HAVE BEEN ONE OF THOSE

STATISTICS WITHOUT TREATMENT

FROM A MEDICAL CLINIC SET UP

BY "OPERATION BLESSING."

Reporter: 4-YEAR-OLD

LUCY AND HER LITTLE SISTER

WERE SO SICK WITH MALARIA,

THEY HAD TO BE CARRIED BY

THEIR MOTHER INTO THE

"OPERATION BLESSING" MEDICAL

CLINIC NEAR THEIR HOME.

BOTH GIRLS WERE SICK, BUT

LUCY'S CASE WAS FAR WORSE.

SHE HAD BEEN HAVING

FEVER.

LUCY WAS REALLY ANEMIC, AND

SHE WAS DROWSY.

Reporter: HER MALARIA

AND ANEMIA WERE SO SEVERE,

THAT WITHOUT AN IMMEDIATE

TRANSFUSION, SHE WOULD DIE.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING"

RUSHED LUCY AND HER SISTER

TO THE NEAREST HOSPITAL,

WHICH WAS TWO HOURS AWAY.

THERE WE ARRANGED FOR THE

GIRLS TO RECEIVE I.V.s

WITH MEDICINES.

WE HAVE MALARIA, THE

MALARIA THAT KILLS EASILY,

ESPECIALLY CHILDREN UNDER

FIVE.

Reporter: WITH LUCY'S

LIFE SAVED AND HER CONDITION

ON THE MEND, WE DROVE UT TO

OUT TO SEE WHERE SHE LIVED.

WE DISCOVERED THIS BROKEN

DOWN CHANTEY.

THE ROOFS LEAK, AND IT IS

OPEN TO WIND, WEATHER, AND

MOSQUITOS.

LUCY'S GRANDMOTHER IS A

WIDOW.

SHE WORKS LONG HOURS UNDER

THE HOT SUN, MAKING

CHARCOAL.

I FEEL SO HELPLESS.

SOMETIMES I CAN'T SLEEP

BECAUSE I WORRY ALL THE

TIME.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" BROUGHT MATERIALS

AND PAID WORKMEN TO BUILD

LUCY AND HER GRANDMOTHER A

NEW HOUSE.

SOON THE WALLS WERE UP AND

THE ROOF WAS IN PLACE, AND

IT WAS TIME TO GET LUCY FROM

THE HOSPITAL.

WITH A NEW HOUSE AND A

HEALTHY GRANDDAUGHTER, THIS

FAMILY FEELS HOPEFUL ABOUT

THE FUTURE FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN YEARS.

I HAVE NEVER HAD SUCH A

NICE HOUSE LIKE THIS.

YOU HAVE SAVED OUR LIVES.

THANK YOU.

Terry: LUCY'S LIFE IS

SAVED, AND OH, HOW YOU'VE

TOUCHED THE HEART, AS WELL

AS THE LIFE OF HER

GRANDMOTHER AND THE REST OF

THAT FAMILY.

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS, YOU DID

THAT.

YOU ARE THE ONES WHO MADE

THAT HAPPEN.

AND WE WANT TO SAY THANK

YOU.

IT IS JUST ONE OF THE THINGS

YOU ARE DOING DAILY ALL

AROUND THE WORLD.

YOU DO THAT IF YOU JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

FOR 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH.

WE HAVE DIFFERENT CLUB

LEVELS YOU CAN JOIN AT, BUT

THAT'S OUR GENERAL CLUB

MEMBERSHIP.

THE POWER OF ONE PERSON TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IS

IMMEASURABLE.

TO KNOW YOU CAN DO IT FOR

THAT SMALL OF AN INVESTMENT,

YOU CAN CHANGE LIVES FOR

THAT, IS A VERY POWERFUL

THING.

IT STARTS BY GOING TO YOUR

PHONE AND CALLING OUR

TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

AND SAY, I WANT TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

WE WELCOME YOU.

NOT ONLY THAT, WE SAY THANK

YOU.

AND ONE OF THE WAYS WE SAY

THANK YOU IS TO SEND YOU

GORDON'S LATEST TEACHING.

IT IS CALLED "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT, HOW GOD SPEAKS IN

DREAMS."

HE DOES THAT TO HIS PEOPLE,

AND WE WANT YOU TO

UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR DREAMS

MEAN.

WE THINK IT WILL BE A GREAT

BLESSING TO YOU.

CALL THAT TOLL-FREE NUMBER

ON YOUR SCREEN, AND WE'LL

GET THIS OUT RIGHT AWAY TO

YOU.

GORDON?

Gordon: UP NEXT, A

GOLFER WHO TRIPPED AND TAKES

A FALL.

AS I FELL, MY HANDS WENT

DOWN, MY ELBOWS WENT DOWN,

AND MY HIP WENT DOWN.

Gordon: THREE YEARS OF

PAIN FOLLOWED THAT FALL.

WE'LL SHE YO SHOW YOU HOW

HE GOT BACK ON THE LINKS

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Gordon: PATRICK WALEN

LOVES LIFE ON THE LINKS.

HE WAS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE.

BUT FOR THREE YEARS, PATRICK

SUFFERED FROM CHRONIC PAIN

UNTIL THE DAY HE WAS HEALED

IN AN INSTANT.

Reporter: 75-YEAR-OLD

PATRICK WALEN LOVES TO PLAY

GOLF, BUT HIS GAME WAS PUT

ON HOLD WHEN HE FELL DOWN

WHILE WALKING IN HIS

NEIGHBORHOOD.

THERE WAS A HOLE THERE,

LIKE A MOUSE HOLE, THAT

CAUGHT MY LEFT FOOT.

AND ONCE IT STARTED, I

COULDN'T STOP IT.

IT WAS SLOW MOTION FOR A

MINUTE, AND THEN IT WAS LIKE

SOMEBODY PUSHED ME, BAM,

JUST LIKE THAT.

AS I FELL, I PUT MY HANDS

OUT.

LIKE THIS.

SO I COULD STOP MYSELF FROM

HITTING THE CONCRETE.

MY HANDS WENT DOWN.

MY ELBOWS WENT DOWN.

AND THEN MY HIP WENT DOWN.

I LOOKED OVER THE COMMENT,

CEMENT, AND I COULD SEE MY

FRIEND COMING DOWN.

AND I TRIED TO GET UP AT

FIRST, AND I FELL BACK IN.

I NEVER FELT SO WEAK IN MY

LIFE FOR A MINUTE.

I ASKED THE GENTLEMAN TO RUN

IN AND GET A TOWEL AND FILL

IT WITH ICE AND BRING IT OUT

THERE.

IN THE MEANTIME, I TOOK MY

PHONE OUT OF MY POCKET AND

DIALED 9-1-1 AND ASKED FOR

AN AMBULANCE.

AND THEY WERE ONLY THREE

BLOCKS AWAY, AND THEY CAME

RIGHT UP.

AND SO I ENDED UP AT ST.

JAME'S HOSPITAL.

Reporter: PATRICK

NEEDED 13 STITCHES IN HIS

FOREHEAD, WHICH HEALED, BUT

THE PAIN IN HIS HIP

CONTINUEED FOR THREE YEARS.

I HAD PROBLEM WHEN I PUT

MY ELBOWS DOWN.

PUT YOUR ELBOW DOWN, AND I

WOULD FEEL ELECTRICITY GOING

UP MY ARM.

Reporter: PATRICK AND

HIS WIFE WERE WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB," WHEN TERRY HAD A

WORD FOR PATRICK.

Terry: YOU HAVE PAIN IN

YOUR ELBOW FROM A PAST

INJURY.

GOD IS TOTALLY

RECONSTRUCTING THAT AND

HEALING THUNDERSTORM FOU.

THAT FOR YOU.

IT JUST FELT WARM.

IMMEDIATELY HE SAID, I

THINK I'VE JUST BEEN

HEALED.

THAT'S WHY THE NEXT

DAY -- THAT'S WHEN I REALLY

GOT EXCITED BECAUSE IT

WASN'T THERE ANYMORE.

AND I JUST KEPT THINKING GOD

ALL DAY LONG.

AND I STILL DO, EVERY DAY.

IT'S A MIRACLE.

AND I KEPT CHECKING IT FOR

WEEKS.

AND THE BONES DID NOT

REAPPEAR.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE THE

BONES WENT.

IT'S GONE.

Reporter: TODAY PATRICK

IS STILL PAIN-FREE AND BACK

ON THE LINKS AGAIN.

OH, THE SMELL OF THE

GRASS, AND THE SUN, WHEN IT

COMES UP, IT'S A BEAUTIFUL

PLACE TO BE.

THE ONLY THING THAT HURTS ME

IS WHEN I CAN'T FIND MY BALL

AFTER I HIT IT.

[LAUGHTER]

Gordon: GOD LOVES TO

GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR

HEART.

PATRICK LOVED GOLFING.

GOD WANTED TO SEE HIM BACK

OUT THERE, WITH THE SMELL OF

THE GRASS, THE SUN.

HE WANTS TO DO THAT FOR

YOU.

HE WANTS YOU TO HAVE LIFE.

THAT'S WHY JESUS CAME, THAT

WE MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND HAVE

IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.

WE'VE GOT SOME OTHER

MIRACLES FOR YOU.

JACLYN OF MICHIGAN HAD PAIN

IN HER LEFT HEAL, AND X-RAYS

WITH A DIAGNOSIS OF A BONE

SPUR.

AND NO TREATMENT WAS GIVEN,

AND THE PAIN PERSISTED.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND TERRY

HAD A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

SOMEONE HAS VERY PAINFUL

BONE SPURS IN YOUR HEAL.

IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO

WALK.

WELL, IMMEDIATELY JACLYN'S

PAIN DISAPPEARED, AND SHE

HAS HAD NO PAIN EVER SINCE.

AND WHO KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED

TO THOSE BONE SPURS.

THAT'S WONDERFUL.

Terry: THIS IS WALTER,

HE LIVES IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.

HE INJURED HIS KNEE WHILE

CLIMBING A MOUNTAIN AND HE

WOULD EXPERIENCE SHARP

PAINS.

ONE TODAY HE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, GORDON, AND

YOU SAID, SOMEONE, YOU'RE

EXPERIENCING SHARP PAINS IN

YOUR RIGHT KNEE, AND GOD HAS

JUST HEALED YOU.

HE IS ABLE TO RESTORE YOU

NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

WALTER KNEW THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE WAS FOR HIM, AND

HE CLAIMED IT.

THE PAIN IN HIS KNEE

IMMEDIATELY LEFT, AND HE IS

WAITING FOR THE SNOW TO MELT

SO HE CAN BEGIN MOUNTAIN

CLIMBING AGAIN.

Gordon: GOD WATCHES

OVER HIS WORD TO PERFORM

IT.

SO START REALIZING THAT THE

WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE

WORD WAS GOD, AND THE WORD

BECAME FLESH AND DWELT AMONG

US.

THAT SAME WORD, "I AM THE

LORD THAT HEALS YOU," THAT

WORD CAN BECOME FLESH IN

YOU.

SO IN AN ACT OF FAITH, LAY

YOUR HAND ON THAT AREA OF

THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

AND TERRY AND I WILL AGREE.

AND WE'LL LET GOD WATCH OVER

HIS WORD, TO PERFORM IT.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU NOW.

AND AS PEOPLE ARE LAYING

HANDS ON THAT AREA OF THE

BODY THAT NEEDS HEALING, WE

JOIN WITH THEM IN AGREEMENT,

AND WE SAY OVER THIS AREA,

BE HEALED NOW.

OVER THESE BODIES, BE HEALED

NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AND BE EVERY BIT WHOLE.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU HEARD

THE STORY ABOUT THE BONE

SPURS IN THE LEFT FOOT, AND

YOU'VE GOT BONE SPURS IN

YOUR LEFT HEAL, AND YOU'RE

LAYING HANDS ON IT AND

YOU'RE SAYING, PLEASE SAY

THAT.

GOD HAS HEARD YOUR CRY.

THOSE ARE MELTING AWAY,

DISAPPEARING.

GOD IS GIVING YOU A GREAT

MIRACLE.

SOMEONE ELSE WITH CHRONIC

PAIN IN BOTH FEET.

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR YOU

TO WALK.

GOD IS HEALING AND RESTORING

YOUR BONE.

HE IS GIVING YOU BACK

PADDING.

HE IS GIVING YOU BACK LIFE

SO YOU CAN GO OUT AND LIVE

AGAIN.

Terry: FOR OTHER

PEOPLE -- THIS ISN'T FOR ONE

PERSON.

THE WORD IS RESTORATION.

RELATIONSHIP RESTORATION.

GOD IS RESTORING BROKEN

RELATIONSHIPS, AND YOU'RE

GOING TO KNOW BECAUSE YOU

HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING TO

RESTORE THESE RELATIONSHIPS,

OR THE ONE IN YOUR LIFE.

GOD IS GOING TO DO IT.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO REAL

REALIZE YOU HAD NOTHING TO

DO WITH IT.

IT IS ALL HIM.

Gordon: THERE IS A MAN

NOW, YOU'RE VERY FEARFUL

BECAUSE YOU'VE HAD A

RECURRENCE OF CANCER IN YOUR

LUNG.

GOD IS HEALING YOU.

REST IN HIS PEACE, IN HIS

JOY, AND IN HIS LOVE.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR REPORT, SO CALL US,

1-800-759-0700.

WE'RE HERE TO PRAY FOR YOU.

SO IF YOU NEED PRAYER, CALL

US.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM: BE FILLED WITH

THE SPIRIT, GIVING THANKS

ALWAYS, FOR ALL THINGS, TO

GOD THE FATHER, IN THE NAME

OF OUR LORD, JESUS CHRIST."
