Pastor and author Jack Hayford discusses the strategies he has learned for engaging and defeating evil through prayer. Plus, CBN’s Operation Blessing brings sustainable gardening to a Guatemalan community. Read Transcript


INVESTIGATORS WORKED

THROUGH THE NIGHT.

A GIRL GOES MISSING.

IT'S A SURREAL MOMENT.

A FEELING LIKE THIS IS NOT

HAPPENING.

AND RESCUE TEAMS DON'T

HAVE A LEAD.

THE OTHER ALTERNATIVES

TO HER BEING FOUND START

TO BE A REALITY.

" GOD, PLEASE INTERVENE."

THIS IS BEYOND OUR

CONTROL.

" Pat: WELCOME TO ""THE"

"700 CLUB."""

WILL THIS WEATHER NEVER

END?

FIRST CAME TORNADOES AND

"THUNDERSTORMS, WITH HUGE"

AMOUNTS OF RAIN.

AND NOW THE WORST FLOODING

IN DECADES HAS SWAMPED

PART OF THE GULF COAST.

"IN FLORIDA AND ALABAMA,"

AND EVEN AS FAR AWAY AS

MARYLAND.

Terry: SO FAR THE

VIOLENT STORM SYSTEM HAS

KILLED AT LEAST 37 PEOPLE

IN EIGHT STATES.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: FLOOD

WARNINGS REMAIN IN EFFECT

ALL ALONG THE EAST COAST

THURSDAY.

"DAYS OF RELENTLESS RAIN,"

TOO MUCH FOR CREEKS AND

STREAMS TO HANDLE.

THE FLOODWATER HAS

"ENGULFED CARS, HOMES, AND"

"IN BALTIMORE, IT EVEN"

CAUSED THIS ROAD TO

"COLLAPSE, SENDING CARS"

TUMBLING OVER THE EDGE.

THE SIDEWALK IS GONE.

THE CARS ARE GONE.

AND EVERYTHING JUST FELL.

IT WAS LIKE SOMEBODY CAME

BY AND JUST RIPPED OFF THE

SIDE OF THE ROAD.

" Reporter: PENSACOLA,"

FLORIDA SAW TWO FEET OF

RAIN IN JUST 24 HOURS.

THE MOST THE FLORIDA

PANHANDLE HAS SEEN IN A

GENERATION.

HUNDREDS OF RESIDENTS WERE

FORCED TO LEAVE THEIR

"HOMES, CANOEING TO REACH"

HIGHER GROUND.

MOTORISTS WERE TRAPPED IN

"THEIR CARS, WAITING HOURS"

FOR HELP TO ARRIVE.

TODAY TEAMS ARE GOING OUT

INTO THE COMMUNITY TO

OFFER AID TO FLOOD

VICTIMS.

THIS IS THE SAME STORM

SYSTEM THAT UNLEASHED AT

LEAST 65 STORMS ACROSS THE

SOUTH.

OPERATION BLESSING IS 06

"ALSO IN TUPELO,"

"MISSISSIPPI, WHERE MANY OF"

THE RESIDENTS LOST

EVERYTHING.

BASICALLY IT IS WHAT I

WOULD IMAGINE A WAR ZONE

WOULD LOOK LIKE.

OPERATION BLESSING IS A 06

TRUE BLESSING.

IT IS LIVING UP TO ITS

NAME.

Reporter: PARTS OF

"FLORIDA, ALABAMA, AND"

"NORTH CAROLINA, ARE STILL"

AT RISK FOR TORNADOES.

BUT METEOROLOGISTS SAY BY

TONIGHT THAT MASSIVE STORM

SYSTEM WILL HEAD OUT TO

SEA.

"CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS."

Pat: IT IS HORRIBLE

WHAT IS HAPPENING WHAT IS

HAPPENING DOWN THE EAST

COAST.

OPERATION BLESSING HAS 06

RELEASED TRACTOR-TRAILERS

WITH THOUSANDS OF POUNDS

OF FOOD AND WATER AND

THINGS THOSE PEOPLE WILL

NEED.

ALL OF US NEED TO GET

TOGETHER TO HELP THOSE IN

THE DISASTER AREA.

I ASKED OUR PRODUCERS WHAT

"IS CAUSING THAT, AND THEY"

SAID IT WAS A FRONT WITH A

BUNCH OF RAIN.

TWICE AT MUCH RAIN FELL IN

THE GULF THAN FELL IN

CALIFORNIA IN THE WHOLE

SEASON.

Terry: UNBELIEVABLE.

Pat: IT REALLY IS.

Pat: THEY SURE DON'T

HAVE A PROBLEM WITH

DROUGHT.

IT IS FEAST OR FAMINE.

Terry: PEOPLE CAN

PARTICIPATE WITH

"OPERATION BLESSING, BY 06"

HELPING US GIVE.

Pat: WE'RE ON THE

SCENE WHEREVER POSSIBLE.

"IN OTHER NEWS, WHAT REALLY"

HAPPENED IN BENGHAZI?

DID THE WHITE HOUSE TRY TO

COVER UP THE TRUTH?

REPUBLICANS THINK THEY

HAVE EVIDENCE TO PROVE

THAT WAS THE CASE.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

Reporter: THAT'S

"RIGHT, PAT."

REPUBLICANS SAY THEY FOUND

THE SMOKING GUN THAT

PROVES THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION TRIED TO

HIDE THE TRUTH ABOUT THAT

TERRORIST ATTACK IN

BENGHAZI.

THREE DAYS AFTER IT

"HAPPENED, WHITE HOUSE AID"

BEN RHODES SENT AN E-MAIL

SAYING THE TOP GOAL SHOULD

"BE TO, QUOTE,""UNDER SCORE"

THESE PROTESTS ARE ROOTED

IN AN INTERNET VIDEO AND

"NOT A FAILURE OF POLICY."""

AND SUSANNE RICE SAID THE

ATTACKS WERE AS A RESULT

OF A PROTEST THAT GOT OUT

OF CONTROL.

THE ADMINISTRATION MISSED

OR IGNORED WARNING SIGNALS

OF THE TROUBLE.

"PAT, YOU'VE GOT TO EXPECT"

THERE IS GOING TO BE MORE

HEARINGS ON CAPITOL HILL.

Pat: YOU GET SICK OF

HEARING ABOUT IT.

"AND HILLARY CLINTON SAYS,"

"WELL, SO WHAT?"

"WELL, PEOPLE WERE KILLED."

BUT THE BIG THING IS WE'VE

GOT A PRESIDENT -- WE WERE

HORRIFIED ABOUT NIXON AND

THE WHITE HOUSE AND THE

BURGLARS AND THE BREAK-INS

AND ALL OF THAT STUFF THAT

WENT ON DURING THE

SCANDALS OF THE NIXON

"ADMINISTRATION, BUT WE'VE"

GOT A PRESIDENT THAT IS

EVER BIT AT BAD -- AS A

"MATTER OF FACT, WORSE, IT"

LOOKS LIKE.

THIS IS A DELIBERATE

ATTEMPT.

THAT IS APPALLING.

" Reporter: PAT, SCORES"

OF GIRLS AND YOUNG WOMEN

KIDNAPPED BY AN ISLAMIC

TERRORIST GROUP IN

"NIGERIA, ARE BEING FORCED"

TO MARRY THE MEN WHO TOOK

THEM.

THEIR PARENTS SAY THE

GIRLS ARE BEING SOLD BY

THE BOKO HARAM FOR AS

LITTLE AT $10.

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE BRAVED

HEAVY RAIN AS THEY MARCHED

TO THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY

AS THEY DEMAND THE

GOVERNMENT DO MORE TO FIND

AND BRING THE GIRLS TO

FREEDOM.

ONE COMMUNITY LEADER SAYS

BOKO HARAM IS DEMANDING A

RANSOM FOR THEIR RELEASE.

DEADLY SUPER BUGS THAT ARE

STRONGER THAN THE MOST

POWERFUL DRUGS ARE

SPREADING AROUND THE DRUG.

AND THE WORLD HEALTH

ORGANIZATION WARNS THE

PROBLEMS ARE ONLY GOING TO

GET WORSE.

THE BACTERIA HAS BUILT UP

"RESISTANCE TO ANTIBIOTICS,"

AND THAT MEANS IN THE

FUTURE EVEN COMMON

INFECTIONS ARE MINOR

INJURIES COULD LEAD TO

DEATH.

"PAT, THIS IS A SERIOUS"

PROBLEM THAT IS NOT

GETTING ENOUGH ATTENTION.

Pat: IT IS A MAJOR

STORY TODAY.

PEOPLE NEED TO RECOGNIZE

THIS.

IF A LITTLE KID IS RIDING

HIS BICYCLE AND HE SCUFFS

HIS KNEE AND HE FALLS OFF

"HIS BIKE, HE CAN DIE."

THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE

TALKING ABOUT.

"IT'S THAT SERIOUS, JUST A"

SLIGHT INFECTION.

NOW BECAUSE THESE SUPER

BUGS HAVE MORPHED AGAINST

THE EXISTING ANTIBIOTICS.

"AND THE DRUG COMPANIES,"

"OVER THE LAST 30, 40"

"YEARS, REALLY HAVEN'T COME"

UP WITH ANY NEW

SUBSTITUTES TO PENICILLIN

AND THE OTHER DRUGS THAT

HAVE WORKED SO

EFFECTIVELY.

BUT THEY'VE BEEN

"OVERPRESCRIBED, AND THAT'S"

BEEN THE PROBLEM.

"AND AS THAT HAPPENS, THE"

BUGS INSIDE OF A PERSON

"BUILD UP IMMUNITY, AND"

THEN BEGIN TO TRANSFORM

THEMSELVES INTO SUPER

BUGS.

AND THEY SAY IT IS MUCH

MORE SERIOUS THAN AIDS.

JOHN?

" PAT, A PHILANTHROPIST"

NAMED JOAN KROC HAS HELPED

"MILLIONS, AND COMMUNITIES"

ACROSS THE AREAS ARE

REAPING BENEFITS.

Reporter: THIS IS

"JOAN KROC'S 90,000TH"

"COMMUNITY CENTER, LOCATED"

IN ONE OF THE POOREST

AREAS OF WEST VIRGINIA.

SHE DONATED $90 MILLION TO

"THE SALVATION ARMY, TO"

BUILD A COMMUNITY CENTER

"IN SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA."

SHE WANTED TO CREATE A

PLACE WHERE CHILDREN AND

FAMILIES FROM DIFFERENT

BACKGROUNDS COULD ENJOY

EXPERIENCES THAT OTHERWISE

THEY MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO

AFFORD.

"THREE YEARS LATER, SHE"

"DIED, LEAVING MORE THAN"

$1.5 BILLION TO THE

"SALVATION ARMY, TO"

CONTINUE THAT WORK FOR 28

ADDITIONAL CENTERS ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

THIS YEAR THE HAMPTON

ROADS SALVATION ARMY RAY

AND JOAN KROC COMMUNITY

CENTER BECOMES ONE OF THE

"FINAL THREE CENTERS,"

COMPLETING THE PROJECT.

LOCAL SUPPORT FOR THE

PROJECT HAS BEEN

OVERWHELMING.

SO MANY BUSINESSES AND

INDIVIDUALS HAVE COME

TOGETHER TO CONTRIBUTE AND

TO GIVE THEIR SUPPORT TO

THE CENTER.

IT JUST HAS BEEN REALLY

WONDERFUL TO SEE.

Reporter: THE NEW

JOAN KROC CENTER IS

DESIGNED TO BE THE

HEARTBEAT OF THE

"COMMUNITY, COMPLETE WITH"

AN INDOOR WATER PARK AND A

STATE-OF-THE-ART

PERFORMING ART CENTER.

CBN NEWS GOT A FIRSTHAND

"LOOK AT THE CENTER, WHICH"

BOASTS THE LARGEST FITNESS

STORE IN THE HAMPTON

ROADS.

"IT INCLUDES A TWO STORY,"

"150-FOOT WATER SLIDE, LAP"

"LANES, AND A LAZY RIVER."

SALVATION ARMY CAPTAIN

BRENT MEREDITH IS THRILLED

TO HAVE THIS CENTER IN HIS

CITY.

FOR NORFOLK TO RECEIVE

THIS IS A VERY EXCITING

TIME FOR THE SALVATION

"ARMY, AND ALSO FOR THE"

COMMUNITY BECAUSE OF THE

TRANSFORMATIONAL EFFORT OF

THE CENTERS.

Reporter: AND IT WILL

BRING UP TO 200 JOBS TO

THE AREA.

I LIVE RIGHT DOWN THE

"STREET, AND NORFOLK IS"

REALLY STEPPING THE GAME

UP.

IT MAKES ME PROUD TO BE IN

NORFOLK.

IT IS CLOSE TO WHERE I

"LIVE IN, AND, ALSO, IT HAD"

"EVERYTHING I WANTED TO DO,"

"GO IN THE POOL, YOU'VE GOT"

"EXERCISE CLASSES, ALL OF"

THE EXERCISE MACHINES.

Reporter:

SCHOLARSHIPS ARE ALSO

AVAILABLE FOR PEOPLE WHO

CAN'T AFFORD THE

MEMBERSHIP FEES.

JOAN KROC'S VISION WAS

SO IT WOULD SERVE ALSO TO

ALL ECONOMIC BACKGROUNDS.

"SO WHEN YOU WALKED IN, YOU"

WALKED IN ON LEVEL GROUND.

"WHEN FOLKS WERE SERVED, IT"

WOULD BE SIDE BY SIDE.

WHETHER YOU HAVE A MILLION

DOLLARS IN THE BANK OR

"$100 IN THE BANK, YOU"

RECEIVE THE HELP AND THE

ASSISTANCE THAT YOU NEED.

" Reporter: MEANWHILE,"

CAPTAIN MEREDITH SAYS THIS

WILL ENABLE THE SALVATION

ARMY TO MAKE AN EVEN

GREATER IMPACT ON THOSE IT

SERVES WHILE MAINTAINING

ITS SPIRITUAL EMPHASIS.

THERE ARE GREAT NEEDS

IN TERMS OF EDUCATION AND

CULTURAL EXPERIENCES.

AND WE'RE GOING TO WORK AT

PROVIDING THOSE ON EVERY

DAY.

MANY OF THE FAMILIES WILL

PROBABLY HAVE NEVER BEEN

ABLE TO WALK INTO A

FACILITY THIS NICE AND

ENJOY THE AMENITIES AND

ENJOY THE EDUCATIONAL

PROGRAMS AND THINGS THAT

WE'RE GOING TO OFFER.

"AND, YOU KNOW, THE"

POWERFUL THING IS IT ALL

HAPPENS IN JESUS' NAME.

AND THAT'S WHAT'S

IMPORTANT.

Reporter: CHARLENE

"AARON, CBN NEWS."

" PAT, WHAT AN AMAZING"

GIFT.

Pat: IT REALLY WAS.

IT WAS A BILLION AND A

HALF DOLLARS.

IT WAS BUILT ON

HAMBURGERS.

THAT'S WHERE RAY CROCK GOT

HIS MONEY.

AND HE LEFT IT TO HIS

WIFE.

"HIS WIFE, IN TURN, LEFT A"

GOOD PORTION OF IT TO THE

SALVATION ARMY.

Terry: DOING

SOMETHING GOOD WITH IT.

Pat: IT IS A

BEAUTIFUL CENTER.

WE HAVE A GENTLEMAN HERE

"WHO JUST PASSED ON, JOSH"

"DARDEN, WHO WAS THE SPARK"

PLUG AND SPEARHEAD OF THE

LOCAL INITIATIVE.

BECAUSE JOAN KROC SAID YOU

HAVE TO HAVE MATCHING

MONEY.

AND I THINK THEY RAISED

CLOSE TO $30 MILLION.

AND HE ALSO WANTED TO NOT

ONLY HAVE THE LOCAL

PARTICIPATION FOR BUILDING

"THE CENTER, BUT THEY"

WANTED A CERTAIN AMOUNT

FOR ENDOWMENT.

THE SALVATION ARMY IS A

GREAT ORGANIZATION.

Terry: THEY ARE A

GREAT ORGANIZATION.

"UP NEXT, INTO THE CENTER"

OF EGYPT'S WORST VIOLENCE

AGAINST CHRISTIANS IN 700

YEARS.

I ASKED ONE OF THE

"KIDNAPPERS, WHY DO YOU"

JUST KIDNAP CHRISTIANS?

AND HE SAID CHRISTIANS ARE

"WEAK, THEY DON'T RETALIATE"

"WITH VIOLENCE, AND THEY"

HAVE MONEY.

Terry: SOME OF THE

SURVIVORS SHARE THEIR

STORY.

THAT'S NEXT.

" Pat: WELL, YOU'RE"

"WATCHING ""THE 700 CLUB."""

WE DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

"SENTENCED TO DEATH, THAT"

WAS THE VERDICT IN EGYPT

THIS WEEK AGAINST SEVERAL

HUNDRED MEMBERS OF THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD FOR

THEIR VIOLENT ACTIONS

AFTER THE BROTHERHOOD WAS

THROWN OUT OF OFFICE LAST

YEAR.

RADICAL MUSLIMS HAVE ALSO

TAKEN THEIR ANGER OUT ON

COPTIC CHRISTIANS.

GEORGE THOMAS TAKES US TO

"THE CENTER OF BRUTALITY,"

WHERE CHRISTIANS ARE DYING

FOR THEIR FAITH.

WE WANT TO WARN YOU THAT

SOME OF THE IMAGES OF THIS

STORY ARE GRAPHIC.

George:

"AUGUST 20th, 2013."

WE WERE AT WORK WHEN WE

HEARD MUSLIMS WERE BURNING

CHURCHES.

George: IN THE SMALL

"VILLAGE OF DELGA, FOUR"

HOURS SOUTH OF CAIRO.

LEADERS IN THE MOSQUES

WERE TELLING MUSLIMS TO

ATTACK CHRISTIANS AND KILL

THEM.

[YELLING]

George: HUDOS AND HIS

"FATHER, BOTH CHRISTIANS,"

WERE IN THEIR FAMILY

BARBER SHOP WHEN A MOB OF

MUSLIMS ATTACKED THEM.

THEY BROKE INTO THE

"SHOP, TOOK EVERYTHING, AND"

BURNED THE PLACE DOWN.

George: BUDROS

MANAGED TO ESCAPE.

HIS FATHER WASN'T SO

FORTUNATE.

THEY CAUGHT MY FATHER

AND SHOT HIM MULTIPLE

TIMES.

THEN THEY DRAGGED HIS BODY

TO THE MOSQUE.

George: WARNING: THE

FOLLOWING IMAGES ARE

GRAPHIC.

THAT AFTERNOON SOMEONE

WITH A CELL PHONE RECORDED

THIS VIDEO OF BUDROS'

FATHER'S BODY RIDDLED WITH

"BULLETS, BEING DRAGGED"

THROUGH THE STREETS.

WHEN THEY REACHED THE

"MOSQUE, THEY TIED HIS BODY"

TO A TRACTOR AND DRAGGED

HIM THROUGH THE VILLAGE

AGAIN.

George: THE MOB

CONTINUED TO MUTILATE HIS

"FATHER'S BODY, ALL THE WHY"

"CHANTING ALLAHU AKBAR,"

"ARABIC FOR ""GOD IS GREAT."""

HE WAS BURIED HOURS LATER

IN A NEARBY CEMETERY.

" THE NEXT DAY, SOME"

PEOPLE DUG UP HIS BODY AND

DRAGGED IT THROUGH THE

VILLAGE AGAIN.

THEY DID IT THREE TIMES

THAT DAY.

George: BUDROS AND

HIS FAMILY HAVE SINCE

ESCAPED FROM DELGA.

" WE HAVE NO MONEY, NO"

"CLOTHES, NO JOB."

OUR HOME IS DESTROYED.

OUR BUSINESS IS DESTROYED.

George: DELGA IS PART

"OF THE MINYA CENTER,"

CENTER OF THE WORST

VIOLENCE AGAINST

CHRISTIANS IN SEVEN

CENTURIES.

" 300 HOMES, 100"

"BUSINESSES, 15 CHURCHES,"

AND ABOUT 10 CHRISTIAN

ORGANIZATIONS WERE

DESTROYED IN MY PROVINCE.

George: THIS MAN IS

HEAD BISHOP OF MINYA'S

"COPTIC CHURCH, HOME TO THE"

LARGEST NUMBER OF

CHRISTIANS IN EGYPT.

HE SAYS THE KILLING AND

ARSON ATTACKS HAPPENED

BECAUSE CHRISTIANS

SUPPORTED THE REMOVAL OF

MOHAMMED MORSI AND HIS

GOVERNMENT.

BUT THE COST TO EGYPT'S

COPTIC COMMUNITY HAS BEEN

STAGGERING.

HUNDREDS OF HOMES AND

BUSINESSES DESTROYED.

AND TODAY THE GOVERNMENT

SAYS IT WILL TRY TO

REBUILD ALL OF THE PLACES

OF WORSHIP.

BUT THE BIG QUESTION: WHAT

ABOUT THOSE WHO HAVE LOST

"EVERYTHING, THEIR"

"LIVELIHOODS, AND THEIR"

HOMES?

CHRISTIANS IN EGYPT ARE

EXPECTING DEATH AT ANY

TIME.

George: AND HE SHOULD

KNOW.

DAYS BEFORE THIS

"INTERVIEW, MARCARIUS WAS"

THE TARGET OF AN

ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT.

DRIVING THROUGH A TOWN IN

"MINYA, GUNMEN BEGAN FIRING"

AT HIS CAR.

I THANK THE LORD I'M

"STILL ALIVE, BUT I'M LIKE"

ANYBODY ELSE IN MINYA.

WE ALL FACE DANGERS.

MY LIFE IS NOT MORE

PRECIOUS THAN ANY OTHER.

George: CHRISTIANS

MAKE UP ABOUT 10% OF

EGYPT'S 80 MILLION

POPULATION.

THEY FACE DAILY

"HARASSMENT, NEARLY A YEAR"

AFTER MORSI'S OUSTER AND

THE GOVERNMENT'S CRACKDOWN

ON THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

THEY PUT A GUN TO MY

HEAD AND IN MY MOUTH.

"I STARTED TO PRAY, LORD,"

MY LIFE IS IN YOUR HANDS.

AND I'M READY TO GO WHEN

MY TIME IS UP.

George: WE HAVE

CONCEALED JOSEPH'S

IDENTITY FOR SECURITY

REASONS.

HE WAS ABDUCTED LATE LAST

YEAR BY SEVEN GUNMEN AND

TORTURED FOR TWO DAYS.

I CALL THEM THE 48

HOURS OF DEATH.

"NO FOOD, NO WATER, NO"

"LIGHT, NO SLEEPING."

I WAS BLINDFOLDED THAT

ENTIRE TIME.

"AND THEY KEPT BEATING ME,"

"PUNCHING ME IN THE FACE,"

ON MY SHOULDERS AND ON MY

BACK.

George: KIDNAPPERS

ROUTINELY TARGET

CHRISTIANS.

I ASKED ONE OF

"KIDNAPPERS, WHY DO YOU"

ONLY ATTACK CHRISTIANS?

"HE SAID, CHRISTIANS ARE"

WEAK AND THEY DON'T

RETALIATE WITH VIOLENCE.

George: AFTER HOURS

"OF NEGOTIATIONS, THEY"

"SETTLED ON $43,000."

STILL A HUGE SUM THAT

JOSEPH SAYS HIS FAMILY

COULD NOT AFFORD TO PAY.

THAT'S WHEN FRIENDS FROM

HIS CHURCH STEPPED IN.

I HAD SOME MONEY IN

"SAVINGS, BUT THE REST OF"

THE RANSOM MONEY CAME FROM

CHURCH MEMBERS.

I CANNOT THANK THEM ENOUGH

FOR SAVING MY LIFE.

George: HE SAYS THE

SECURITY SITUATIONS HAS

LED SEVERAL HUNDRED

THOUSANDS HERE TO CONSIDER

FLEEING.

BUT HE TOLD THEM THEY MUST

STAY.

WE MUST CONSIDER THIS

AN HONOR TO ENDURE THE

PERSECUTION.

George: EGYPT HOLDS

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS

LATER THIS MONTH.

JOSEPH IS PRAYING THE

COUNTRY WILL SEE BETTER

DAYS.

THE MUSLIM'S TIME IN

OFFICE ALMOST DESTROYED

OUR COUNTRY.

BUT WE ARE THANKFUL THEY

NEVER HAD THE OPPORTUNITY

TO FINISH THEIR TERM.

NOW IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME

TO SECURE OUR COUNTRY.

" George: MEANWHILE,"

BUDROS AND HIS FAMILY ARE

STILL HEALEDING IN AN

"UNDISCLOSED LOCATION, BUT"

HOPE TO ONE DAY GO BACK TO

DELGA.

CHRISTIANS SEE THIS

OPPORTUNITY TO WITNESS

ABOUT CHRIST THROUGH OUR

SUFFERING.

WE HAVE TO BE TOLERANT AND

KEEP PRAYING FOR OUR

ENEMIES.

George: GEORGE

"THOMAS, CBN NEWS,"

REPORTING FROM MINYA

"PROVINCE, EGYPT."

Pat: LADIES AND

"GENTLEMEN, THAT'S A STORY"

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO SEE

ANY PLACE ELSE.

WE'RE SHOWING YOU THE

TRUTH.

THIS IS THE WAY IT IS.

I DON'T CARE ABOUT

POLITICAL CORRECTS IN

AMERICA OR ALL OF THE

NONSENSE.

I READ TODAY THERE ARE

SOME HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

IN COLORADO THAT ARE NOW

"STAYING, ONE NATION UNDER"

ALLAH.

DO THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT

THEY'RE ASKING FOR?

DO THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT

SHARI'A MEANS?

DO THEY UNDERSTAND THE

DEGRADATION OF WOMEN?

DO THEY UNDERSTAND THE

AWFUL KILLINGS THAT ARE

GOING ON UNDER THE NAME OF

ALLAH?

YOU NEED TO BE INFORMED.

YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS

GOING ON.

THERE IS A BOOKLET THAT IS

WRITTEN BY THE TRUTH.

"IT IS A SHORT BOOK, BUT IT"

"IS CALLED ""ISLAM, A"

"RELIGION OF PEACE OR WAR."""

IT TELLS YOU THE FACTS.

IT TELLS YOU THE HISTORY.

IT HAS QUOTES FROM THE

"QURAN, FROM THE HADIF."

DON'T BE PRODUCED BY

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

THEY'RE LYING TO YOU.

THIS IS THE TRUTH.

"ISLAM, A RELIGION OF PEACE"

OR WAR?

WE'LL GIVE IT TO YOU FREE.

THERE ARE EXTRA COPIES FOR

CHURCHES.

"IT COSTS ABOUT 18 CENTS,"

"20 CENTS A COPY, IF YOU"

WANT TO GET A WHOLE BUNCH

OF THEM.

BUT IT IS FREE FOR THOSE

WHO JUST WANT A COPY.

HAVE YOU READ IT?

Terry: I HAVE READ

IT.

IT IS VERY ENLIGHTENING.

IF YOU HAVEN'T SPENT TIME

LOOKING INTO THE HISTORY

"OF ALL OF IT, YOU WOULDN'T"

KNOW.

AND SOMEBODY HAS DONE THE

HISTORY.

Pat: I WENT TO

"COLLEGE, AND WE STUDIED,"

"AS PART OF HISTORY, JIHAD."

AND EVERYBODY UNDERSTOOD

THAT JIHAD MEANT THESE

MUSLIMS WERE RUNNING

ACROSS NORTH AFRICA

KILLING PEOPLE.

IT MEANT VIOLENT STRUGGLE.

THAT'S WHAT JIHAD WAS.

"NOW THEY HAVE SAID, NO,"

JIHAD MEANS A STRUGGLE

AGAINST THE INNER SOUL.

THAT'S BOLOGNA.

IT HAS TO DO WITH FIGHTING

AND KILLING PEOPLE.

"WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE,"

THAT'S WHAT WE GOT TAUGHT.

TODAY THEY WOULDN'T DARE

"MENTION THAT IN COLLEGE,"

FOR FEAR THEY MIGHT GET

FIRED.

Terry: A LOT OF WHAT

HAS HAPPENED IN OUR

COUNTRY IS DUE TO

"POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, AND"

THAT IS CERTAINLY A PART

OF IT.

Pat: IF THIS IS THE

"ENEMY, AND THEY'RE INTENT"

ON DESTROYING THE

DEMOCRATIC PROCESS WE HAVE

"IN AMERICA, YOU WILL BE"

ENSLAVED.

YOU WILL EITHER TAKE DEMI

STATUS AND TAKE

SECOND-CLASS CITIZENSHIP

"IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY, OR"

YOU WILL BE KILLED.

THAT'S WHAT THE QURAN

SAYS.

"YOU COME TO A,"

"QUOTE,""UNBELIEVER"" YOU"

BECOME A DEMI OR YOUR

GOING TO GET SLAUGHTERED

AND YOUR HEAD IS GOING TO

GET CHOPPED OFF.

THAT'S WHAT THEY DID.

IT'S TRUE.

GET THE BOOK.

READ IT.

ENOUGH.

" Terry: WELL, COMING"

"UP, WE'RE GOING TO SHOW"

YOU THE MIRACLE THAT

BROUGHT A LOST LITTLE GIRL

HOME.

"BUT BEFORE WE GET TO THAT,"

WE'VE GOT YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

"CATHY SAYS, ""CAN YOU"

"EXPLAIN THE ILLUMINATI?"""

WE'LL ANSWER THAT PLUS

SHOW YOU A BRAND NEW

"PROJECT FROM ""OPERATION"

"BLESSING."""

IT'S ALL NEXT.

.

Pat: YOU CAN FIND

YOUR CAREER PATH AT REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

IT SO EXCITING.

IT HAS ONE OF THE TOP 10

LAW FACULTIES IN THE

"NATION, ACCORDING TO THE"

PRINCETON REVIEW.

REGENT ALUMNI INCLUDE --

"LET'S SEE -- 31 JUDGES,"

"LEGISLATORS, MILITARY"

"OFFICERS, AND HUNDREDS OF"

LEADERS IN VARIOUS

"COMMUNITIES, INCLUDING"

WE'VE GOT FOUR UNIVERSITY

PRESIDENTS THAT ARE

GRADUATES OF THE SCHOOL.

IT GOES ON AND ON.

WE'VE GOT SO MANY

DIFFERENT PROGRAMS.

AND YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IF

YOU WANT TO GO ONLINE AND

GET THE PROGRAMS.

YOU REALLY OUGHT TO LOOK

INTO THIS.

IT IS A TOP QUALITY

"EDUCATION, AND YOU CAN BE"

PART OF IT.

Terry: A BIG WEEKEND

THIS WEEKEND.

Pat: WE'VE GOT THE

BIGGEST GRADUATING CLASS

AT REGENT.

THERE ARE 1400 AND ABOUT

"38 PEOPLE GRADUATING, THE"

BIGGEST IN OUR HISTORY.

Terry: THAT'S

FABULOUS.

Pat: AND ALL OF THESE

DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES --

IT'S JUST AMAZING.

ABOUT 58 DIFFERENT DEGREE

THINGS.

WE HAVE ALL KINDS OF

"DOCTORAL DEGREES, MASTER'S"

DEGREES.

IT WILL QUITE A COLORFUL

"THING, WITH ALL OF THE"

REGALIA.

Terry: WE'LL BRING IT

TO YOU ALL ON MONDAY.

TIME FOR SOME E-MAIL.

"LET'S ""BRING IT ON."""

THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

"CATHY WHO SAYS, ""CAN YOU"

"EXPLAIN THE ILLUMINATI?"""

Pat: THIS IS A GROUP

THAT WAS ACTIVE ABOUT THE

TIME OF THE AMERICAN

REVOLUTION.

AND CERTAINLY IN THE

FRENCH REVOLUTION.

THEY PROBABLY WERE BEHIND

"THE FRENCH REVOLUTION, AND"

THEY HAD PICKED UP SOME

"EGYPTIAN MYSTICISM, AND"

THEY SAID WE'RE THE

ILLUMINATED ONES.

AND THEY WERE OPPOSED TO

PRIVATE PROPERTY.

THEY WERE OPPOSED TO

MARRIAGE.

THEY WERE OPPOSED TO THE

CHURCH.

AND THEY WERE OPPOSED TO

THE GOVERNMENT THAT THEN

EXISTED.

THE ILLUMINATI INCLUDED --

"WELL, THE FREE MASONS HAD"

"A BRANCH, AND THEY CALLED"

IT THE ILLUMINATED FREE

MASONRY.

AND IT INCLUDED SOME OF

THE HEADS OF STATE AND

NOBELITY IN COUNTRIES LIKE

FRANCE.

SO IT WAS A BIG DEAL AT

THE TIME.

GEORGE WASHINGTON WAS

CONCERNED ABOUT IT.

AND OTHERS.

BUT I DON'T THINK THEY

REALLY HAVE ANY ACTIVITY

TODAY.

BUT IT SOUNDS EVIL AND SO

FORTH.

" Terry: WELL,"

THAT'S -- A LOT OF PEOPLE

WONDER IF THEY'RE STILL

AROUND TODAY.

"OKAY, THIS IS A VIEWER WHO"

"SAYS, ""I KNOW JESUS HAS"

DIED FOR ALL OF MY SINS.

WILL HE ALSO FORGIVE ME

"FOR FUTURE SINS?"""

Pat: JESUS CHRIST IS

"THE SAME TODAY, YESTERDAY,"

AND FOREVER.

HIS BLOOD COVERS

EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN

"DONE, PAST, PRESENT, AND"

FUTURE.

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT

"HE TOOK CARE OF ME, SO I'M"

GOING TO GO SIN SOME MORE.

DON'T PLAY GAMES WITH HIM.

WALK WITH HIM DAY TO DAY.

"IF WE WALK IN THE LIGHT,"

"AS HE IS IN THE LIGHT, WE"

HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH ONE

ANOTHER.

AND THE BLOOD OF JESUS

CHRIST CONTINUOUSLY

CLEANSES US FROM SIN.

THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS IN 1

JOHN.

"IF WE WALK IN THE LIGHT,"

"AS HE IS IN THE LIGHT, WE"

HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH ONE

"ANOTHER, AND THE BLOOD OF"

JESUS CHRIST CONTINUOUSLY.

SO AS WE'RE WALKING WITH

"HIM, WE'RE CONTINUOUSLY"

BEING CLEANSED.

Terry: THIS IS MR.

"ROBINSON, WHO SAYS, ""I"

HAVE LEARNED SOME PEOPLE

DON'T ENTER HEAVEN

"IMMEDIATELY, BUT GO INTO"

PURGATORY.

PLEASE ME HELP ME

UNDERSTAND THIS PLACE.

CAN PEOPLE AVOID THIS

"PLACE, OR IS IT JUST GOD'S"

"WILL FOR SOME?"""

Pat: IT IS NOT GOD'S

WILL FOR ANY BECAUSE IT IS

NOT IN THE BIBLE.

IT IS A DOCTRINE THAT HAS

BEEN PROMULGATED BY OUR

GOOD FRIENDS IN THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH.

WE DISAGREE WITH IT.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID

"THIS, I AM ATWIXED TWO --"

"NOT THREE, BUT TWO --"

WHETHER TO DEPART AND BE

"WITH THE LORD, WHICH IS"

"FAR BETTER, OR TO REMAIN"

IN THE FLESH.

PAUL NEVER SAID ANYTHING

ABOUT ANY INTERMEDIATE

STATE.

WHEN JESUS WAS TALKING TO

THE THIEF ON THE CROSS.

"HE SAID, LORD, REMEMBER ME"

WHEN YOU COME INTO YOUR

KINGDOM.

"AND JESUS SAID, THIS DAY"

YOU'LL BE WITH ME.

NOT IN PURGATORY.

IT IS NOT BIBLICAL.

Terry: CHRISTINE

"SAYS, ""WHENEVER I POST"

SOMETHING ON SOCIAL MEDIA

"ABOUT MY FAITH, MANY"

ATHEISTS COMMENT IT IS

WRONG AND TRY TO ARGUE

ABOUT GOD'S EXISTENCE.

SHOULD I ARGUE BACK AND

TRY TO PROOF GOD'S

EXISTENCE OR JUST IGNORE

"IT?"""

Pat: WHAT DO THEY SAY

ABOUT A LIAR?

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DEFEND

"HIM, JUST TURN HIM LOOSE."

THE BIBLE SAYS DON'T CAST

YOUR PEARLS BEFORE SWINE

BECAUSE THEY WILL TURN.

A SWINE IS HUNGRY FOR

NUTS.

"HE WANTS CHESTNUTS, OR"

WHATEVER NUTS HE EATS.

AND HE ROOTS IN THE

GROUND.

AND YOU THROW A PRECIOUS

PEARL IN FRONT OF HIM AND

"HE THINKS IT IS A NUT, AND"

"HE TRIES TO EAT IT, AND IT"

"DOESN'T TASTE GOOD, SO HE"

WANTS TO GORE YOU.

WHY WOULD YOU PUT YOUR

"PEARLS OUT, AND WHY WOULD"

YOU ARGUE WITH THOSE

PEOPLE?

KEEP YOUR STUFF TO

YOURSELF.

WHEN YOU'VE GOT PEOPLE

"WHO'S HEARTS ARE OPEN,"

THEN SHARE WITH THEM.

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE FOR

QUESTIONS TODAY.

THANK YOU.

Pat: RECENTLY

OPERATION BLESSING 06

VISITED A FARMING

COMMUNITY THAT HAD A BIG

PROBLEM.

THERE WERE NO FARMS

BECAUSE OF A VOLCANIC

"ERUPTION, BUT THANKS TO"

"SOME SECURITY INGINUITY,"

THIS VILLAGE IN GUATEMALA

"WAS SAVED, AND THE PEOPLE"

IN THAT GUATEMALAN

COMMUNITY HAVE HOPE FOR

THE FUTURE.

WATCH THIS.

" HELLO, I'M BILL HORN,"

"PRESIDENT OF ""OPERATION"

"BLESSING"" INTERNATIONAL."

I'M JUST BACK FROM A TRIP

"IN GUATEMALA, AND REALLY"

EXCITED ABOUT A NEW

AGRICULTURAL PROGRAM WE

HAVE DOWN THERE.

"ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO, THERE"

"WAS A VOLCANIC EXPLOSION,"

BLACK ASH BLEW UP IN THE

AIR AND FELL DOWN ALL

AROUND THE AREA.

AND IT SMOTHERED ALL OF

THE EXISTING CROPS IN THIS

ONE PARTICULAR COMMUNITY

THAT WE BEGAN TO WORK IN.

WE TRAINED THE FOLKS HERE

AND TAUGHT THEM HOW TO

"MAKE THESE RAISED BEDS,"

USING LOCALLY OBTAINABLE

MATERIALS.

THIS IS ROUGH SAW LUMBER

THEY HAVE MILLED LOCALLY.

"THEY USED BAMBOO, AND THEY"

LINE THE BEDS WITH

"PLASTIC, AND THEY GO TO"

ANOTHER PART OF THE

MOUNTAIN AND FIND GOOD

SOIL AND PUT IT IN THESE

RAISED BEDS.

THEY USE A BIOLOGICAL

"ORGANIC FERTILIZER, AND"

THEY DON'T NEED AS MUCH

WATER AS YOU WOULD NEED TO

WATER A FIELD.

IT IS A GREAT WAY TO

PRODUCE A LOT OF PRODUCE

IN A SMALL AREA.

"ULTIMATELY, A GROWING BED"

WAS BUILT FOR EVERY FAMILY

IN THE COMMUNITY.

IT HAS COMPLETELY

TRANSFORMED THIS VILLAGE.

THE VEGETABLES GROW

BEAUTIFULLY.

"THEY GROW BEAUTIFUL,"

"ORGANIC VEGETABLES, WHICH"

ARE NOT ONLY GREAT FOR THE

"VILLAGERS TO EAT, BUT THEY"

CAN TAKE CERTAIN

VEGETABLES TO MARKET AND

SELL THEM FOR CASH.

SO THIS MODEL NOT ONLY

"PROVIDES FOOD, BUT IT"

PROVIDES A SOURCE OF

INCOME FOR VILLAGERS THAT

OTHERWISE ARE STRUGGLING.

SO WE BUILT A BEAUTIFUL

"FACILITY, ON SEVERAL"

"ACRES, THAT WE LEASED NEAR"

"ANTIGUA, GUATEMALA."

AND WE WERE ABLE TO BUILD

A MODEL THAT TAKES IN A

NUMBER OF OTHER STRATEGIES

THAT ARE VERY USEFUL THAT

HELP MAKE THIS WHOLE THING

WORK.

BUT WE BUILD THE STRUCTURE

OUT OF LOCAL MATERIALS.

WE USED BAMBOO POSTS FOR

"THE VERTICAL COLUMNS, AND"

WE PURCHASED PLASTIC TO

MAKE THE ROOF.

WE DON'T WANT RAINFALL.

"IT MAY SOUND ODD, THAT WE"

DON'T WANT THE RAIN TO

"FALL ON OUR GROWING BEDS,"

BUT WE WANT TO CONTROL

THAT MOISTURE IN A VERY

PRECISE MANNER THROUGH

DRIP IRRIGATION.

AND WE'RE ALSO USING A

PLASTIC CONTAINER STRATEGY

THAT WAS DEVELOPED IN

SPAIN FOR VERTICAL GROWING

"SCENARIOS, IN WAYS WE CAN"

GROW EVEN MORE VEGETABLES

IN A CONFINED AREA.

THE RAISED BEDS USUALLY

PRODUCE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN

SIX AND SEVEN TIMES AS

MANY VEGETABLES ON A GIVEN

SPACE AS IN A FARMERS'

FIELD.

THIS IS TRULY SUSTAINABLE.

PEOPLE TALK ABOUT

SUSTAINABLE ALL OF THE

TIME.

THIS ONE REALLY IS.

ONCE WE HELP PEOPLE GET

"SET UP AND TRAIN THEM,"

THEY CAN DO THIS FOREVER.

WE COULDN'T BE MORE

"EXCITED ABOUT THIS NEW,"

INNOVATIVE AGRICULTURAL

MODEL.

Pat: BILL HORN IS

FANTASTIC.

HE HAS GOT THESE FISH

"FARMS DOWN IN HAITI, WHERE"

HE IS GROWING THOUSANDS OF

"POUNDS OF PROTEIN,"

TALAPIA.

AND HERE IT IS

AGRICULTURE.

"PEOPLE HAVE A NEED, AND"

INSTEAD OF SOME GRANDIOSE

"PROGRAM,"

"GOVERNMENT-SPONSORED,"

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WITH

BAMBOO AND ROUGH SAW LOGS

AND SOME DIRT THEY HAUL

IN --

Terry: TEACHING THEM

TO BE SELF-SUFFICIENT.

Pat: EXACTLY.

EXACTLY.

"IT IS ""OPERATION"

"BLESSING."""

IF YOU WANT TO GET MORE

"INFORMATION, YOU CAN LOG"

"ON TO ob.org, OR THERE"

IS A NUMBER ON YOUR SCREEN

AND YOU CAN CALL IN.

THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE

"THINGS ""OPERATION"

"BLESSING"" IS DOING TO"

ALLEVIATE SUFFERING IN THE

WORLD.

THIS REALLY GRABS YOUR

ATTENTION BECAUSE WE CAN

FEED MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.

"ACTUALLY, THEY CAN FEED"

THEMSELVES.

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

A WONDERFUL PROGRAM.

"COMING UP, AN 11-YEAR-OLD"

GIRL WANDERS OFF AND

DOESN'T RETURN HOME.

" ABOUT 20 MINUTES, 30"

"MINUTES, AND I STEPPED"

"OUTSIDE THE DOOR, WAITING"

FOR HER TO CIRCLE AROUND

AND TELL HER TO COME IN.

"WHEN SHE DIDN'T DO THAT,"

THAT'S WHEN I GOT IN THE

CAR TO GO LOOK FOR HER.

Terry: SEE HOW SHE

WAS SUPER NATURALLY

RESCUED WHEN WE COME BACK.

"STILL AHEAD, ""CHURCH ON"

"THE WAY PASTOR,"" JACK"

"WAYFORD, JOINS US LIVE ON"

"TODAY'S ""700 CLUB."""

WE WANT TO SHOW YOU NOW

WHAT PRAYER DID FOR ONE

"FAMILY IN FLORIDA, AFTER"

THEIR DAUGHTER WAS LOST

AND WANDERED SEVERAL MILES

FROM HOME.

THEY HAD NO LEADS UNTIL A

MEMBER OF HER CHURCH HEARD

A VOICE FROM ABOVE.

Reporter: ON THE

"MORNING OF APRIL 10, 2010,"

11-YEAR-OLD NADIA BLOOM

HOPPED ON HER BIKE AND

SPED OFF TOWARDS THE

WOODED AREA AT THE END OF

HER SUBDIVISION TO TAKE

SOME PICTURES OF NATURE.

BUT SHE DIDN'T RETURN.

" ABOUT 20 MINUTES, 30"

"MINUTES, I STEPPED OUTSIDE"

"THE DOOR, WAITING FOR HER"

TO CIRCLE AROUND AND TELL

HER TO COME IN.

"WHEN SHE DIDN'T DO THAT,"

THAT'S WHEN I GOT IN THE

CAR TO GO LOOK FOR HER.

Reporter: TANYA WAS

VERY CONCERNED BECAUSE THE

AREA AROUND THEIR HOME IS

RIPE WITH ALLIGATORS.

I KNOW THERE WOULD BE

"TWO PLACES SHE WOULD GO, A"

PLAY AREA AND A POND.

"I DROVE TO THE POND, AND I"

SAW HER BIKE PARKED

IMMEDIATELY RIGHT BY THE

"POND, WITH HER HELMET ON"

THE HANDLEBARS.

Reporter: TONYA WENT

LOOKING FOR HER DAUGHTER.

WHEN SHE COULDN'T FIND

"HER, SHE CALLED 9-1-1."

"WITHIN HOURS, LOCAL AND"

STATE AUTHORITIES SET UP A

MASSIVE SEARCH OPERATION.

IT IS A SURREAL MOMENT.

YOU'RE FEELING LIKE THIS

ISN'T HAPPENING.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS

HAPPENING.

WHERE IS SHE?

Reporter: SOON NIGHT

"BEGAN TO FALL, AND STILL"

NO SIGN OF NADIA.

EVERYTHING THAT YOU

BELIEVE IN GOD IS GOING TO

BE TESTED.

AND YOU HAVE TO MAKE A

DECISION.

IS HE WHO HE SAID HE WAS?

AND WE CHOSE TO BELIEVE

"THAT, NO MATTER WHAT."

Reporter: AS WORD

SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE

"COMMUNITY, THE BLOOM'S"

PASTOR GATHERED PEOPLE TO

PRAY.

" IT WAS A VERY OPEN,"

HONEST NIGHT OF PEOPLE

"JUST CALLING FOR GOD,"

"SAYING, GOD, PLEASE"

INTERVENE.

THIS IS BEYOND OUR CONTROL

AND WE REALLY NEED YOU.

Reporter: THE SEARCH

CONTINUED FOR SEVERAL

"DAYS, AND NADIA'S STORY"

GAINED NATIONAL ATTENTION.

INVESTIGATORS WORKED

"THROUGH THE NIGHT, TRYING"

TO FIND 11-YEAR-OLD NADIA

BLOOM IN THE DENSE WOODS

NEAR HER HOME.

" AS TIME WENT ON, THE"

OTHER ALTERNATIVES TO HER

BEING FOUND START TO

"BECOME MORE OF A REALITY,"

AND YOU START TRYING TO

COME TO TERMS WITH THOSE

OTHER EVENTS HAPPENING.

THERE WERE TIMES WHERE

"I WOULD HAVE HOPE, AND"

THERE WOULD BE TIMES LIKE

"HE SAID, SHE COULD HAVE"

"BEEN TAKEN BY SOMEBODY,"

AND WHAT COULD BE

HAPPENING TO HER?

Reporter: ALL OF THE

"WHILE, TOWNS PEOPLE"

CONTINUED THEIR OUTPOURING

OF PRAYERS AND SUPPORT.

HER SCHOOL SENT HOME

LETTERS FROM ONE CLASS.

THERE WAS A CHILD WHO

"SAID, HOPE WILL BRING HER"

HOME.

I JUST STARTED WEEPING.

"AND, AGAIN, THAT RESTORED"

"THE HOPE, FROM THIS LITTLE"

KID.

ONE OF THE PRAYERS THAT

"I HAD WHEN I PRAYED, AND"

"IT WAS ALMOST CONSTANT,"

"THAT WHATEVER HAPPENED,"

GOD WOULD BE GLORIFIED

THROUGH THESE EVENTS.

Reporter: FOUR DAYS

"PASSED, AND STILL"

SEARCH-AND-RESCUE TEAMS

CAME UP EMPTY-HANDED.

THEN THERE WAS A LEAD.

BUT IT DIDN'T COME FROM A

SEARCH PARTY OR

HELICOPTER.

"JAMES KING, A MEMBER OF"

"THE BLOOM'S CHURCH, SAID"

GOD TOLD HIM WHERE TO LOOK

FOR NADIA.

HE LATER GAVE HIS ACCOUNT

TO CBN NEWS.

" IT WAS A STILL, SMALL"

VOICE.

HE LED ME IN DIFFERENT

"CASES, TELLING ME, YES, GO"

THIS WAY.

DON'T GO THAT WAY.

Reporter: THAT

AFTERNOON JAMES MADE A

"CALL TO 9-1-1, WITH NEWS"

THAT THE BLOOM FAMILY AND

THE TOWN OF WINTER SPRINGS

HAD BEEN WAITING FOUR DAYS

TO HERE.

" 9-1-1, WHAT'S YOUR"

EMERGENCY.

I'VE GOT HER.

I'VE GOT NADIA.

"OKAY, I'M IN THE MIDDLE OF"

THE SWAMP.

TO GO FROM THAT DEPTH

OF EMOTION AND GO TO THAT

EXHILARATION IN THE SPAN

OF A FEW SECONDS IS

UNBELIEVABLE.

I RAN INTO THE BEDROOM AND

I ALMOST BROKE DOWN THE

"DOOR TO TELL TANYA, AND"

THE WHOLE HOUSE ERUPTED.

IT WAS JUST AWESOME.

Reporter: THE PEOPLE

IN THE BLOOM'S

NEIGHBORHOOD THROUGH NADIA

A WELCOME HOME PARTY.

JEFF BLOOM SAYS HIS PRAYER

THAT GOD WOULD BE

GLORIFIED WAS ANSWERED.

THERE WERE PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD WHO SENT

"US LETTERS AND CALLED, AND"

SAID THEY WERE PRAYING FOR

NADIA.

I HAD PEOPLE WHO E-MAILED

ME WHO DIDN'T HAVE FAITH.

"THEY SAID, I DON'T"

"BELIEVE, BUT THIS IS AS"

CLOSE TO A MIRACLE AS I'VE

EVER SEEN.

Reporter: SOME OF THE

DETAILS OF THE ORDEAL ARE

ALREADY STARTING TO FADE

FOR NADIA.

BUT SHE'LL NEVER FORGET

THAT THERE IS A GOD WHO

STILL DOES MIRACLES TODAY.

IT WAS VERY MIRACULOUS.

I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS

"LITTLE, I QUESTIONED IF"

GOD WAS ALWAYS THERE FOR

"US, BUT HE DOES THAT."

"I MEAN, REALLY."

NO MATTER HOW SCARY IT

"IS, YOU HAVE TO KEEP YOUR"

TRUST IN HIM.

Terry: HE KNOWS YOUR

NAME.

HE KNOWS THE NUMBER OF

HAIRS ON YOUR HEAD.

GOD IS VERY PERSONAL WITH

US.

" Pat: THE THING IS, HE"

KNOWS EVERYTHING.

IT IS WAY BEYOND HIS

WISDOM.

IT IS WAY BEYOND US.

IF WE WOULD OPEN OUR MINDS

AND OUR HEARTS TO RECEIVE

"IT, BUT WE SHUT IT OUT."

WE KNOW SO MUCH.

DON'T TELL ME ABOUT THIS.

IT IS NOT SCIENTIFIC.

"OKAY, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY."

AND HERE IS SOMEBODY WHO

"SAYS, I NEED A FINANCIAL"

TURNAROUND FOR MY

SUFFERING RETAIL BUSINESS.

A HUSBAND NEEDS TO FIND A

GOOD JOB.

A SON NEEDS TO BE HEALED

OF PROSTATE CANCER.

AND THERE IS AN INOPERABLE

BRAIN TUMOR.

Terry: HERE IS

"SOMEONE SAYING, I NEED"

HEALING FROM A STROKE AND

A RARE CANCER IN THE

ABDOMINAL LINING.

"SOMEONE ASKING FOR WISDOM,"

"STRENGTH, AND PATIENCE TO"

DEAL WITH MY HUSBAND'S

DEMENTIA.

AND SOMEONE ELSE SAYING I

NEED TO BE HEALED FROM

A-FIB AND DIABETES.

"ANOTHER SAYING, I NEED A"

FINANCIAL HEALING.

"MY HOME IN IS FORECLOSURE,"

AND I'M UNABLE TO WORK

FROM A WORKPLACE INJURY

THREE YEARS AGO.

Pat: THE SILVER IS

"HIS, THE GOLD IS HIS, THE"

CATTLE ON A THOUSAND HILLS

IS HIS.

SO WHY WOULDN'T HE GIVE A

LITTLE PIECE OF IT TO YOU

IF YOU NEED IT?

YOU'RE HIS CHILD.

"FATHER, THERE ARE PEOPLE"

CRYING OUT PARTICULARLY

FOR A FINANCIAL MIRACLE

RIGHT NOW.

"AND, LORD, YOU HAVE THE"

TREASURY OF HEAVEN.

YOU HAVE ALL OF THE GOLD

AND ALL OF THE SILVER AND

ALL OF THE OIL AND ALL OF

THE ANIMALS AND ALL OF THE

PLANTS AND ALL OF THE

WEALTH IN THE WORLD.

IT'S YOURS.

"NOW, THESE PEOPLE ARE"

SAYING WE ARE IN DESPERATE

NEED.

HELP US.

"LORD, FIRST OF ALL, GIVE"

THEM WISDOM ON HOW TO

"MANAGE THEIR FINANCES, AND"

GIVE THEM THE BLESSING

THEY NEED IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

"LORD, WE PRAY FOR OTHERS"

WHO ARE HURTING AND SICK.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

"SOMEONE, YOU HAVE SERIOUS"

"MOUTH AND DENTAL ISSUES,"

AND YOU'VE NOT BEEN ABLE

TO HAVE THE WORK DONE

BECAUSE OF FINANCES.

GOD IS GOING TO PROVIDE

THAT FOR YOU AND YOUR

MOUTH IS GOING TO BE

TOTALLY PUT BACK TOGETHER.

" Pat: SOMEBODY, YOUR"

"NAME IS MARSHIA, AND YOU"

"HAVE LUPUS, AND YOU'RE"

PRAYING WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

GOD HAS JUST REACHED OUT

"TO YOUR HOME, AND THAT"

LUPUS IS GOING AWAY.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE

COMPLETELY CLEAN.

ANY LESIONS IN YOUR FACE

ARE GONE.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE

COMPLETELY WHOLE.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO PRAISE

GOD.

"RAISE YOUR HANDS AND SAY,"

"THANK YOU, JESUS."

IT'S YOURS.

TERRY?

" Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,"

YOU HAVE -- WHEN I SAY

"MENTAL CONFUSION, IT IS"

MORE THAN JUST BEING

FORGETFUL.

THERE IS A CHEMICAL

"IMBALANCE, AND GOD IS"

HEALING YOU NOW.

"IN JESUS' NAME, YOU'RE"

HEALED.

Pat: WE HAVE BEFORE

US A THOUSAND OR SO PRAYER

REQUESTS.

"WE'VE GOTTEN 100,000 OR"

MORE PRAYER REQUESTS.

WE'RE GOING TO SYMBOLICLY

LAY HANDS ON THEM AND PRAY

FOR YOU.

"FATHER, IN JESUS' NAME --"

"IN JESUS' NAME, LISTEN TO"

THE PRAYER OF YOUR PEOPLE

AND HEAR AND DO AND SHOW

YOURSELF STRONG.

"THANK YOU, FATHER."

"THANK YOU, LORD."

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: AMEN.

TERRY?

" Terry: UP NEXT, THE"

MAN CALLED THE PASTOR'S

PASTOR AND THE PENTECOSTAL

GOLD STANDARD.

WE'RE GOING TO SIT DOWN

WITH JACK HEYFORD AFTER

THIS.
