David: THIS WEEK ON

"THE BRODY FILE," WE'RE ON

THE ROAD, IN THE GREAT

NORTHWEST, FROM SEATTLE TO

SPOKAN.

WE'RE ALL OVER THE STATE.

AND WE'RE ONE-ON-ONE WITH

THE TOP REPUBLICAN WOMAN IN

CONGRESS.

SHE LIVES IN SPOKAN, CATH

McMORRIS.

I RECOGNIZED THAT GOD'S

WILL IS NOT A DESTINATION.

IT IS NOT A TITLE.

IT IS NOT A POSITION.

DAY IN AND DAY OUT, IT IS

THE PERSON HE WANTS YOU TO

BE.

David: AND WE HEAD TO

THE SMALL TOWN OF OSO,

WASHINGTON, WHERE THE PEOPLE

UP THERE ARE TRYING TO

RECOVER FROM THAT DEADLY

MUDSLIDE.

MANY ARE SEARCHING FOR GOD

THROUGH THE CRISIS.

IT IS ONE OF THE TOP FIVE

AREAS IN THE UNITED STATES.

AND IT IS A REAL OPPORTUNITY

FOR THE CHURCH OR CHURCHES

TO RISE UP AND SHOW THE LOVE

OF GOD.

David: AND IT IS A

PLACE OF SPIRITUAL HEALING,

RIGHT SMACK DAB IN THE

MIDDLE OF SPOKAN.

I CAN ONLY EXPLAIN IT

THAT I GET HIT BY SPIRITUAL

MAC TRUCKS EVERY TIME I COME

HERE.

David: SO JOIN "THE

BRODY FILE."

WE'RE A FUN BUNCH.

WE'RE ON ACROSS AMERICA,

FROM SPOKAN FALLS, NEXT.

CRIEMP

*

David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE ARE HERE IN SPOKAN,

WASHINGTON, IN THE EASTERN

PART OF THE STATE.

BEHIND ME, THE SPOKAN

FALLS.

WE'VE DONE A PRETTY GOOD

AMOUNT OF DRIVING ON THIS

ROAD TRIP.

WE STARTED IN SEATTLE, AND

THEN WE HEAD NORTH.

WE WENT NORTH A COUPLE OF

HOURS TO OSO, AND THEN THE

BIG FIVE-HOUR DRIVE OVER

HERE TO SPOKAN.

WHY ARE WE HERE?

WE'VE COME HERE TO SPEAK

WITH A VERY INFLUENTIAL

WOMAN IN AMERICAN POLITICS.

HER NAME, CATHY McMORRIS

ROGERS.

SHE IS THE TOP REPUBLICAN

WOMAN IN THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

SHE LIVES HERE IN WASHINGTON

WITH HER THREE YOUNG

CHILDREN, BUT SHE ALSO LIVES

IN WASHINGTON, D.C., TOO.

SO IT IS A TALE OF TWO

WASHINGTONS, AND SHE REALLY

DOES HAVE A FASCINATING

STORY TO TELL.

HERE IS MORE WITH THE MOST

POWERFUL REPUBLICAN WOMAN IN

THE COUNTRY.

I LOVE YOU, BABE.

David: THIS IS CATHY

McMORRIS ROGERS, AT HOME

IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

AND THIS IS CATHY McMORRIS

ROGERS IN SPOKAN,

WASHINGTON.

OH, MY GOODNESS, YOU HAVE

A CANDY.

David: IT IS A TALE OF

TWO WASHINGTONS.

IN WASHINGTON, D.C., SHE IS

THE POWERFUL CHAIRWOMAN OF

THE HOUSE REPUBLICAN

CONFERENCE, CHARGED WITH

EFFECTIVELY COMMUNICATING

THE G.O.P. MESSAGE, AND

GIVING THE G.O.P. STATE OF

THE UNION ADDRESS.

WHAT AN HONOR IT IS FOR

ME TO BE WITH YOU AFTER THE

PRESIDENT'S STATE OF THE

UNION.

David: BUT BACK IN

SPOKAN, IN THAT OTHER

WASHINGTON, SHE IS JUST

PLAIN OLD CATHY.

I SEE MYSELF AS A TYPICAL

KID THAT GREW UP IN AMERICA

AND HAS BEEN GIVEN SOME

TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITIES.

David: IF CATHY HAD TO

CHOOSE BETWEEN THESE TWO

WASHINGTONS, THERE IS NO

DOUBT SHE WOULD CHOOSE RIGHT

HERE IN SPOKAN.

IT'S IN EASTERN WASHINGTON.

IT'S VERY RURAL, VERY

CONSERVATIVE, AND EXACTLY

WHERE SHE GOT HER HUMBLE

ROOTS.

SO HUMBLE IN FACT, SHE SPENT

A COUPLE YEARS OF HER

CHILDHOOD GROWING UP IN THE

REMOTE AREA OF NORTH BRITISH

COLUMBIA, IN A CABIN.

WE LIVED IN A CAB IN

WITHOUT RUNNING WATER.

David: LIKE "LITTLE

HOUSE OF THE PRAIRIE."

THAT IS A FAVORITE OF

MINE.

David: AND SHE JOINED

THE 4-H YOUTH ORGANIZATION,

AND AT A YOUNG AGE, STARTED

GIVING SPEECHES ALONGSIDE

HER FRIEND, FRECKLES THE

LAMB, AND SHE LIVED ON A

FARM, AND FOR YEARS SHE PUT

IN LONG HOURS AT THE

FAMILY'S FRUIT TREES.

YOU HAVE TO PRUNE THE

TREES, AND EVEN WHEN IT

COMES TIME TO PICK THE

FRUIT, YOU JUST GO AROUND

AND PICK WHAT IS RIPE.

YOU REALLY GET TO KNOW THOSE

TREES THROUGH THE YEARS.

David: OFF TO COLLEGE,

WORKING AT McDONALD'S TO

PUT HERSELF THROUGH SCHOOL.

AND SHE BECAME THE FIRST IN

HER FAMILY TO GRADUATE

COLLEGE.

SHE EVENTUALLY GOT INTO

LOCAL POLITICS, AND NOW,

ROUGHLY 15 YEARS LATER, HERE

SHE IS, THE 200TH WOMAN

ELECTED TO CABINET.

SHE BELIEVES GOD IS LEADING

HER STEPS.

IF YOU WOULD HAVE TOLD ME

IN HIGH SCHOOL THAT THIS IS

WHERE I WOULD BE TODAY, OR

THAT I WOULD BE GIVING THE

PUBLIC ADDRESS FOLLOWING THE

PRESIDENT'S STATE OF THE

UNION, I MIGHT HAVE BEEN

OVERWHELMED.

BUT AS GOD LEADS ONE STEP AT

A TIME, HE PREPARES AND

EQUIPS YOU FOR WHAT IS

NEXT.

David: AND RIGHT NOW,

WHAT IS NEXT FOR THE

CONGRESSWOMAN IS MAKING SURE

THE MESSAGE REACHES ALL

PARTIES.

THE OLD ADAGE THAT PEOPLE

DON'T CARE THAT YOU KNOW

UNTIL THEY KNOW THAT YOU

CARE.

AND PEOPLE NEED TO

UNDERSTAND THAT WE CARE, AND

WE REFLECT WHO THEY ARE IN

THEIR EXPERIENCES.

David: AS A WOMAN WITH

AN INFLUENTIAL MEGA PHONE,

SHE IS PUSHING BACK THAT THE

G.O.P. IS NOT ON BOARD WITH

EQUAL PAY FOR WOMEN.

SHE CITES HOW THE PARTY

BACKED THE EQUAL PAY ACT AS

FAR BACK AT 1963.

YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS IS

DECEITFUL ON THEIR PART?

IT IS.

IT IS.

I SEE THE DEMOCRATS WANTING

TO POLITICIZE THIS ISSUE.

David: DEMOCRATS SAY

WOMEN EARN 77 CENTS TO EVERY

DOLLAR THAT A MAN MAKES.

SHE SAYS THEIR MATH IS

WRONG.

IT DOESN'T TAKE INTO

CONSIDERATION THE CHOICES

THAT WOMEN MAKE.

AND THE EDUCATION AND THE

JOB FIELDS THAT WOMEN

ENTER.

David: THE OTHER BIG

LEGISLATIVE ISSUE ON HER

PLATE, OBAMACARE.

DESPITE A RECENT FLAP OVER

HER REPORTED REMARKS THAT

OBAMACARE IS PROBABLY HERE

TO STAY, McMORRIS ROGERS

HAS REPEATEDLY TRIED TO

REPEAL IT.

IT IS A

ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL,

GOVERNMENT KNOWS BEST

SOLUTION TO HEALTH CARE.

Reporter: ONE REASON

THAT HEALTH CARE IS AN

IMPORTANT ISSUE TO HER,

COLE, HER FIRST CHILD, WAS

BORN WITH DOWN SYNDROME.

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT NEWS

TO RECEIVE BECAUSE YOU DON'T

EXPECT THAT TO HAPPEN TO

YOU.

Reporter: BUT

McMORRIS ROGERS IS A GLASS

HALF FULL TYPE OF PERSON.

HE IS EXCEEDING ALL

EXPECTATIONS.

I TOLD MYSELF, DON'T PUT ANY

LIMITS ON COLE.

Reporter: COLE IS ONE

OF THREE CHILDREN FOR HER

AND HER HUSBAND.

I WAS 36 BEFORE I MET

BRIAN ROGERS.

AND I WAS WONDERING, AM I

GOING TO BE SINGLE FOR THE

REST OF MY LIFE.

AND YET HERE WAS THIS

WONDERFUL MAN, WHO HAD NEVER

BEEN MARRIED, NEVER HAD

KIDS, JUST WAITING FOR ME.

Reporter: AND NOW

BRIAN, A RETIRED NAVY

COMMANDER, STAYS HOME WITH

THE KIDS WHILE THE

CONGRESSWOMAN HEADS OFF TO

WORK.

I HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO

DO THINGS THAT FEW MEN HAVE

THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO.

I'M THOROUGHLY ENJOYING

SUPPORTING MY WIFE AS SHE

MOVES FORWARD WITH HER

CONGRESSIONAL CAREER.

David: AND THAT

CONGRESSIONAL CAREER IS NOW

ONE FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS.

McMORRIS ROGERS IS THE

FIRST WOMAN IN CONGRESS TO

EVER GIVE BIRTH THREE TIMES

WHILE IN OFFICE.

YOU'RE NOT ONLY A MOM, YOU

ARE TECHNICALLY AN HISTORIC

MOTHER.

[LAUGHTER]

OH, BOY, MY JUGGLING ACT

I DON'T THINK IS THAT

DIFFERENT FROM MILLIONS OF

OTHER WORKING MOMS IN THIS

COUNTRY.

AND SOME DAYS IT GOES BETTER

THAN OTHER DAYS.

SOME DAYS I THINK, OKAY,

YEAH, WE HAVE THIS FIGURED

OUT.

AND OTHER DAYS IT FEELS LIKE

IT IS ALL FALLING APART.

David: BUT SHE HAS IT

TOGETHER IN D.C., A STRONG

WOMAN IN A PLACE DOMINATED

BY MEN.

BUT FOR CATHY McMORRIS

ROGERS, ALL OF THIS IS NOT

ABOUT POWER AND CLOUT.

FOR HER, IT IS ABOUT HER

FAITH IN GOD THAT LED HER TO

WHERE SHE IS TODAY.

I'VE RECOGNIZED THAT

GOD'S WILL IS NOT THE

DESTINATION.

AND IT IS NOT A TITLE.

IT IS NOT A POSITION.

GOD'S WILL IS DAY IN AND DAY

OUT BEING THE

PERSON

THAT HE

WANTS YOU TO BE.

I DON'T WANT

THEM EVER

TO

SAY, LOOK AT HER, SHE SAID

SHE IS A CHRISTIAN, AND LOOK

WHAT SHE DID.

I WANT MY TESTIMONY TO BE

ONE THAT IS PLEASING OF

JESUS CHRIST, MY LORD AND MY

SAVIOR.

WE PRAY THESE THINGS IN

YOUR NAME, AMEN.

David: THAT IS CATHY

McMORRIS ROGERS HERE ON

"THE BRODY FILE."

BY THE WAY, THE

CONGRESSWOMAN QUALIFIES AS

ONE OF THE BIGGEST

CELEBRITIES TO COME OUT OF

SPOKAN.

ARE YOU WONDERING WHAT OTHER

CELEBRITIES WERE EITHER BORN

HERE OR GREW UP HERE IN

SPOKAN?

BING CRO CROSBY ACTUALLY

CALLED SPOKAN HOME.

AND CRAIG B.NELSON.

AND THAT IS A LITTLE SPOKAN,

WASHINGTON, TRIVIA FOR YOU.

NEXT WE HEAD NORTH OF

SEATTLE, WHERE A COMMUNITY

GRIEVES OVER LOSING LOVED

ONES IN THE MUDSLIDE.

WHERE IS GOD IN ALL OF

THIS?

WE EXPLORER THAT, NEXT.

David: AND WE'RE BACK

HERE ON "THE BRODY FILE," IN

THE BEAUTIFUL STATE OF

WASHINGTON.

WE'RE IN SPOKAN.

AND LET ME JUST SAY, WHAT A

GORGEOUS DRIVE WE HAD FROM

SEATTLE, HERE TO SPOKAN.

WE HAD MOUNTAINS, RAIN, FOG,

SUNSHINE, LIBERALS,

HIPPIES -- YOU NAME IT, WE

HAD IT.

IT WAS EVERYWHERE.

YOU KNOW WE LIKE TO HAVE

SOME FUN HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE" FROM TIME TO TIME,

HOWEVER THIS NEXT STORY IS

REALLY NO LAUGHING MATTER.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

DEVASTATING KILLER MUDSLIDE

THAT TOOK THE LIVES OF

DOZENS OF PEOPLE HERE IN

WASHINGTON STATE.

IT IS CALLED THE HIGH 30

SLIDE, BECAUSE IT HAPPENED

ON HIGHWAY 530 BETWEEN THE

TOWNS OF OSO AND

BARRINGTON.

WE SPENT SOME TIME HERE

EXPLORING HOW GOD SHOWS UP

IN THE MIDDLE OF UTTER

DISASTER.

ALONG ROUTE 130, THE WAY TO

THE DEVASTATING MUD

MUDSLIDE, HAS SIGNS, "OSO

STRONG."

THIS ROAD ON 530 WILL BE

CLOSED FOR A FEW MONTHS, BUT

WHILE THIS ROAD IS CLOSED,

THERE ARE NOW OPEN ROADS TO

PEOPLE'S HEARTS.

BECAUSE THIS TRAGEDY HAS

GIVEN PASTORS AN OPPORTUNITY

IN HIS AREA TO TALK TO

PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS.

PASTOR MICHAEL DUNCAN, IN

NEARBY BARRINGTON, IS ONE OF

THOSE SPREADING THE WORD.

HE AND HIS WIFE MISSED THE

MUDSLIDE BY JUST TWO

MINUTES.

IT IS HARD TO TALK ABOUT

BECAUSE I DON'T THINK I

DESERVE TO BE THE MAN THAT

WAS SAVED BY TWO MINUTES.

David: YET HERE HE IS,

ALIVE AND TRYING TO MAKE THE

MOST OF IT.

WE DON'T HAVE DAYS LEFT.

I HAD TWO MINUTES.

THAT'S ALL I HAD.

AND THERE WERE PEOPLE THAT

DIED THAT I KNEW THAT DIDN'T

HAVE THAT TIME.

THEY DON'T HAVE THE REST OF

THE YEAR TO GET SAVED.

THEY HAD THAT DAY.

David: AMANDA SCORION

ALMOST JOINED THE DEAD.

HER HOME SLID 600 FEET

BEFORE STOPPING.

I KNOW THAT GOD WAS WITH

US BECAUSE AS IT WAS GOING,

I CRIED OUT TO HIM.

I SAID, PLEASE SAVE US.

David: BUT WHAT ABOUT

THOSE NOT SAVED?

MANY ASK WHERE WAS GOD FOR

THEM?

PASTOR DUNCAN EXPLAINS IT

THIS WAY.

GOD IS RIGHT IN THE

MIDDLE OF IT ALL.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT GOD

BRINGS THE DAY OF DISASTER

AS WELL AS THE DAY OF

BLESSING.

THAT GOD IS -- NOT

NECESSARILY -- WE DON'T

CHARGE GOD WITH A FAULT.

HE IS NOT WRONG IN LETTING

THESE THINGS HAPPEN.

THERE IS A DAY A APPOINTED

FOR EVERYBODY.

AND NOBODY GETS TO THAT DAY

WITHOUT GOD'S PERMISSION.

THAT APPOINTED DAY BELONGS

TO GOD.

LIFE AND DEATH ARE IN HIS

HANDS.

David: AND THAT'S A

THEME PREACHED BY PASTORS UP

HERE.

MANY ARE LISTENING AND

SEEKING HELP.

ABOUT 32 HAVE COME IN

THIS LAST WEEK OR SO JUST

FOR PRAYER AND TO FIND OUT

MORE ABOUT COMFORT.

AND SO IT HAS BEEN A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY TO MEET NEW

PEOPLE AND SHARE WITH THEM

THE LOVE AND POWER OF

CHRIST.

David: THIS AREA OF

THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST NEEDS

TO HEAR ABOUT JESUS.

STATISTICS SHOW IT HAS THE

LEAST AMOUNT OF

BIBLE-BELIEVING CHRISTIANS

IN THE COUNTRY.

IT IS A HIGHLY UNCHURCHED

AREA, PERHAPS IN THE TOP

FIVE UNCHURCHED AREAS IN THE

STATES.

THERE IS A REAL OPPORTUNITY

FOR CHURCHES TO RISE UP AND

SHOW THE LOVE OF GOD.

David: PASTOR DUNCAN

TOLD US ABOUT A WOMAN WHO

LOST A FAMILY MEMBER.

SHE IS NOT SAVED YET, I

BELIEVE.

I DON'T THINK SHE IS.

BUT SHE IS INQUIRING ABOUT

GOD NOW, WHERE SHE WOULDN'T

TALK ABOUT GOD AT ALL

BEFORE.

SHE WANTS TO KNOW ABOUT

ETERNAL THINGS.

IS MY LOVED ONE WITH GOD IN

HEAVEN?

WHAT'S HAPPENED.

WHAT COMES NEXT?

AND THOSE ARE THE QUESTIONS

THAT WILL LEAD HER TO A

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST.

David: THE PAIN WILL

LINGER FOR SOME TIME IN THIS

MAJESTIC AREA OF THE

COUNTRY, BUT A MAJESTIC GOD

IS MAKING HIS PRESENCE FELT

DURING A TIME OF GREAT AGONY

AND SUFFERING.

WE'RE HERE AT "THE BRODY

FILE" PRAY FOR THE FAMILIES

OF THE MUDSLIDE VICTIMS.

ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE ROLL ON

FROM SPOKAN, WASHINGTON,

MARIJUANA VENDING MACHINES?

WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING

TO?

WE EXPLAIN THE TREND TAKING

HOLD HERE IN WASHINGTON

STATE AS "THE BRODY FILE"

ROLLS ON FROM THE PACIFIC

NORTHWEST.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

WE'RE ON LOCATION IN SPOKAN,

WASHINGTON, THE GREAT SPOKAN

FALLS BEHIND ME.

WE KNOW THAT MARIJUANA IS

LEGAL IN COLORADO.

THIS SUMMER IT IS GOING TO

BE LEGAL HERE IN WASHINGTON

STATE AS WELL.

WASHINGTON WILL LIMIT THE

AMOUNT OF LICENSES THEY GIVE

OUT TO BUSINESSES, BUT,

ALSO, GUESS WHAT ELSE IS

COMING HERE?

MARIJUANA VENDING MACHINES.

THAT'S RIGHT, THEY'RE CALLED

ZAZZ MACHINES.

BUT THE MILLENNIAL

GENERATION DOESN'T THINK IT

IS BAD.

THERE ARE ABOUT 90 MILLION

BORN FROM 1982 TO 2002, AND

THEY ARE THE MILLENNIALS WE

TALK ABOUT AND WHEN ASKED IF

THEY SUPPORT THE

LEGALIZATION OF MARIJUANA,

TWO-THIRDS SE SAID YES.

IT COULD BE THE OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

IF NOT, WE'LL GET TO THAT

LATER.

WHEN WE COME BACK, THE STORY

BEHIND SPIRITUAL FEELINGS IN

SPOKAN, WASHINGTON.

WE GO INSIDE THE HEALING

ROOM WITH THE CHURCH LADY,

NEXT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO OUR

WASHINGTON STATE SHOW.

IN DOWNTOWN SPOKAN, WE BRING

YOU NOW THE STORY OF THE

HEALING ROOM.

A GREAT STORY, AND IT COMES

FROM NONE OTHER THAN OUR

CHURCH LADY, TRACY WINBORN.

*

OH, MY LORD, MY SWEET

LORD *

DAVID, I'M STANDING HERE

IN THE HEALING ROOM IN

SPOKAN.

THIS ROOM IS ACTUALLY KNOWN

AS THE FIRE ROOM.

THESE HEALING ROOMS WERE

OPENED UP NEARLY 100 YEARS

AGO.

NOW TODAY THEY'VE BEEN

REOPENED TO CARRY ON THAT

HEALING ANOINTING.

AT THE AGE OF 16, JOHN G.

LAKE GAVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST

DURING A SALVATION ARMY

REVIVAL MEETING.

AS A YOUNG ADULT, HE MOVED

TO AFRICA AND BEGAN A

POWERFUL MINISTRY.

IN 1914, LAKE RETURNED TO

THE U.S. AND SETTLED DOWN IN

SPOKAN, WASHINGTON.

THERE HE OPENED UP THE

HEALING ROOM, A PLACE WHERE

PEOPLE COULD PRAY AND SEEK

GOD.

OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS,

HIS MINISTRY DOCUMENTED MORE

THAN 100,000 HEALINGS.

SPOKAN BECAME KNOWN NOT ONLY

AS THE HEALTHIEST CITY IN@c@c

AMERICA, BUT THE HEALTHIEST

CITY IN THE WORLD.@c@c

JOHN G. LAKE HAD A HUNGER@c

FOR GOD, HAD A HUNGER FOR@c@c

THE TRUTH, THE WORD.@c@c

OUT OF THAT WORD, HE HAD@c

COME TO THE@c DISCOVERY THAT@c@c

GOD WASN'T JUST ABLE TO

HEAL, BUT HE WAS WILLING TO

HEAL.

Reporter: NOW CAL

PIERCE DIRECTS THE HEALING

ROOMS MINISTRIES.

IN THE MID-1990s, AS A

CALIFORNIA REAL ESTATE

DEVELOPER, HE WAS PREPARING

FOR RETIREMENT. BUT HE SAYS@c@c

AFTER NUDGE PRAYER AND@c@c

FASTING, GOD SHOWED HIM@c@c

ANOTHER PLAN FOR HIS LIFE.@c@c

FINALLY AT THE END OF@c@c

THAT FAST, THE HOLY SPIRIT@c@c

COULD GET INTO MY SPIRIT.@c@c

HE SAID I WANT YOU TO REDIG

THOSE WELLS OF HEALING THAT

JOHN G. LAKE HAD.

AND SO THAT'S WHAT WE DID.

Reporter: THE HEALING

ROOMS CLOSED IN 1935.

PIERCE PURCHASED THE

ORIGINAL PROPERTY, REOPENED

THE HEALING ROOMS, AND

EVENTUALLY RELOCATED TO

ANOTHER AREA OF THE CITY.

THE MINISTRY THEN EXPANDED

TO THE POINT WHERE IT TAKES

UP AN ENTIRE BLOCK OF

DOWNTOWN SPOKAN.

THE HEALING ROOM IS AN

INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY.

IT ACTIVATES THE SAINTS OF

GOD INTO THE WORK OF THE

MINISTRY.

AND THE PURPOSE IS TO GET

THE BODY OF CHRIST, OR GOD'S

PEOPLE, HEALED AND

RESTORED.

Reporter: OPEN FIVE

DAYS A WEEK, ANYONE NEEDING

PRAYER CAN COME TO THE

HEALING ROOM.

NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY.

YOU JUST SHOW UP AND SIGN

IN.

STAFF MEMBERS ARE ON

STANDBY, READY TO PRAY.

THERE IS ALSO A GLORY ROOM.

THIS IS WHERE INTERCESSORS

WORSHIP BEFORE PRAYING FOR

THE NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE,

LIKE JOSHUA COX, WHO HAS

BEEN COMING HERE FOR THE

PAST YEAR.

I CAN ONLY EXPLAIN IT

LIKE I GET HIT BY HOLY

SPIRIT MAC TRUCKS EVERY

SINGLE TIME I COME HERE.

GOD MEETS ME HERE.

I ALWAYS ASK FOR A SPECIAL

WORD.

I ALWAYS ASK FOR SOMETHING

THAT IS GOING TO BE PRECISE

IN WHAT I NEED, AND HE

ALWAYS DELIVERS IT TO ME.

Reporter: PIERCE SAYS

HIS VISION FOR THE HEALING

ROOMS GOES WAY BEYOND

SPOKAN.

HE WANTS TO MINISTER TO THE

NATIONS.

THAT LED TO THE

INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF

HEALING ROOMS, WHERE HE

TRAINED ORDINARY PEOPLE FOR

EXTRAORDINARY WORK.

TODAY MORE THAN 3,000

HEALING ROOMS OPERATE IN 75

COUNTRIES.

AND HERE IN THE STRATEGY

ROOM, PEOPLE PRAY FOR THE

HEALING OF THE NATIONS.

SOMETIMES WE'LL HAVE

PEOPLE WHO ASK US, SHOULD WE

HAVE A HEALING ROOM IN OUR

COMMUNITY?

I ALWAYS ANSWER THE SAME

WAY: DO YOU HAVE ANY SICK

PEOPLE THERE?

WHERE YOU HAVE SICK PEOPLE,

YOU NEED HEALING AND HEALING

ROOMS.

Reporter: PIERCE SAYS

HE BELIEVES WE'RE LIVING IN

WHAT HE CALLS THE ISAIAH 60

GENERATION, WHERE DARKNESS

COVERS THE EARTH, BUT ALSO

SAYS HE TAKES COMFORT IN

KNOWING HOW THIS STORY

ENDS.

I WANT TO SEE THESE

WARRIORS RISE INTO THEIR

DESTINY, AND BEGIN TO

REALIZE WE HAVE THE

AUTHORITY AND POWER AND THE

DOMINION TO TAKE BACK WHAT

THE ENEMY HAS STOLEN.

I'VE READ THE LAST CHAPTER.@c@c

WE WIN.@c@c

BUT WE'VE GOT TO REALIZE GOD

CALLS US AN OVERCOMER.

AND THAT MEANS WE HAVE TO

HAVE SOMETHING TO OVERCOME.

David: THAT'S THE

CHURCH LADY ON LOCATION,

RIGHT HERE IN THE HEALING

ROOM IN SPOKAN.

THANKS, TRACY.

BACK IN A MOMENT WITH A

STORY OF A CAKE THAT HAS

BEEN MOLESTED.

IT IS A CLASSIC OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

ALL RIGHT, WE'RE IN

BREATH-TAKING WASHINGTON

STATE, AND WE LOVE IT HERE

IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST.

WE'RE AT THE SPOKAN FALLS,

BY THE WAY.

THIS NEXT STORY REALLY DOES

TAKE THE CAKE.

LITERALLY, AND IT'S ALSO OUR

OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

*

David: ALL RIGHT, "THE

BRODY FILE" LIKES TO EAT,

YOU KNOW THIS.

WE'RE HUNGRY VIRTUALLY ALL

OF THE TIME.

BUT WE'VE NEVER BEEN THIS

DESPERATE.

SO A WOMAN IN KELSA,

WASHINGTON, DECIDES TO BRING

HER CHILD'S BIRTHDAY CAKE

INTO A COURTHOUSE BECAUSE I

GUESS SHE THOUGHT IT WOULD

BE SAFER THERE RATHER THAN

IN A CAR WITH HER DOG.

AFTER THE CAKE GOES THROUGH

SECURITY, IT IS SITTING

THERE ON A TABLE FOR A

MINUTE, AND GUESS WHAT, THIS

GUY, ROBERT FREDERICKSON, A

TOTAL STRANGER, STARTS

GRABBING THE CAKE AND

SHOVING IT INTO HIS MOUTH.

THAT'S RIGHT.

SECURITY OFFICERS TOOK HIM

DOWN, FROSTING SPILLING

EVERYWHERE.

I GRABBED HIS ARM, AND I

SAID, YOU'RE UNDER ARREST.

AND HE IS TRYING TO PULL

BACK, AND WE HAD A TUGGING

MATCH.

AND HE CAME ACROSS THE

TABLE.

AND THE TABLE WENT DOWN AND

THE CAKE WENT FLYING.

WE GOT HIM ARRESTED.

David: FREDERICKSON

ARRESTED FOR MOLESTING A

CAKE.

HE WAS ACTUALLY ON A WAY TO

A COURT APPEARANCE.

NOW HE IS BEING CALLED THE

CAKE MOLESTER.

THAT DOES IT HERE FROM

SPOKAN, WASHINGTON.

I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU, BEFORE

WE LEAVE YOU, WE WANT TO

TAKE A QUICK LOOK BACK AT

THE TIME HERE ON THEED

ROAD.

WON THE ROAD.

WE CALL THIS OUR "BROD"

TRIP.

David: HEY, A BIG

THANK YOU TO TRACY WINBORN,

AND TO OUR WONDERFUL

PHOTOGRAPHER STEVE AND

VERONICA.

THANK YOU GUYS.

YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, EVERYBODY,

GOD BLESS.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
