Two men get lost in on a hiking trip. One gets seriously injured. Find out how they both made it out alive! Read Transcript


Gordon: TWO HIKERS,

LOST AT THE BOTTOM OF THE

CANYON.

UNBEKNOWNST TO ME, THE

FOREST SERVICE HAD GONE IN

THERE AND CHANGED THE

NUMBERS ON THE ROAD.

AND WE COULD NOT FIND THE

ROAD.

Gordon: HOW THEY MADE

IT OUT ALIVE, NEXT WEEK ON

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

ON "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE,"

WE USE TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY

FOR EACH OTHER AND EXPLORE

TOPICS THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO THIS SHOW.

WITH THE SUCCESS OF TV SHOWS

LIKE SURVIVOR, "THE AMAZING

RACE," AND "MAN VERSUS

WILD," IT IS CLEAR THAT

AMERICANS ARE HUNGRY FOR

ADVENTURE.

Terry: THESE TWO GUYS

LIVED FOR THEIR NEXT HIKING

TRIP, BUT WHEN THEY GOT LOST

AND TRAPPED, THEY ONLY HAD A

PRAYER FOR SURVIVAL.

Reporter: IN THE SUMMER

OF 2013, DON SEARS AND

JOSEPH DANIEL, EXPLORED THE

ROCKY CANYONS OF ARIZONA.

WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN AN

ORDINARY HIKE TURNED INTO A

MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH.

I TOLD HIM I WOULD TAKE

HIM TO ONE OF MY FAVORITE

PLACES.

THE LAST TIME I HAD BEEN IN

THERE WAS IN 2010.

IT IS A VERY BIG FOREST

RESERVE.

ABOUT 20,000 SQUARE MILES IN

COCONIO COUNTY.

UNBEKNOWNST TO ME, THE

FOREST SERVICE HAD GONE IN

THERE AND CHANGED THE

NUMBERS ON THE ROAD.

WE COULD NOT FIND THE ROAD.

Reporter: THEY DECIDED

TO KEEP GOING ANYWAY.

DON KNEW IF THEY FOUND THE

CREEK, THEY COULD GET OUT

EASILY.

SO WE TRIED TO FIND

ANOTHER WAY DOWN.

AND, UNFORTUNATELY, WE GOT

TRAPPED IN THIS CANYON.

WE CROSSED TWO BODIES OF

WATER THAT WE COULD NOT

RECROSS, EVEN IF WE WERE

ABLE TO SWIM BACK TO WHERE

WE DROPPED INTO THE WATER,

WE COULDN'T GET THE TRACTION

TO CLIMB UP THAT CHUTE.

THERE IS NO HAND-HELD OR

ANYTHING AT ALL.

IT IS SHEAR ROCK, STRAIGHT

DOWN.

AT THAT POINT, WE CAN'T GO

BACK AND WE CAN'T GO

FURTHER.

IT HAS BEEN FIVE, SIX

HOURS, AND WE DON'T HAVE ANY

WATER OR FOOD.

WE LOST OUR PACK.

Reporter: DON FINALLY

FOUND AN AREA WHERE HE

THOUGHT HE COULD CLIMB OUT.

I GOT UP ABOUT 40 FEET

AND HIT ANOTHER VERTICAL

WALL.

I STARTED UP IT, GOT ABOUT

TWO-THIRDS OF THE WAY UP IT,

AND I JUST RAN OUT OF GAS.

I REALIZED EVEN IF I MADE IT

OVER THAT WALL AND ON UP, I

COULDN'T DO THAT.

I DIDN'T HAVE THE STRENGTH

LEFT TO PULL MY BODY WEIGHT

UP.

SO I SAID, I NEED TO GO BACK

DOWN.

I CAN'T SPEND THE NIGHT UP

HERE, OKAY.

ON THE SIDE OF THIS CLIFF.

Reporter: DON BEGAN TO

DESCEND, BUT HE SLIPPED AND

FELL, LANDING IN THE

CREVICE.

HE DISLOCATED HIS RIGHT

SHOULDER AND BROKE HIS LEFT

SHOULDER AS HE FELL.

I WASN'T GOING ANYWHERE.

THAT WAS IT.

I COULDN'T GO DOWN.

THERE WAS A POSSIBILITY IF I

TRIED TO GET DOWN TO WHERE

JOSEPH WAS, THAT I WOULD

START FALLING AND WOULD NOT

BE ABLE TO STOP.

Reporter: DON AND

JOSEPH, BOTH CHRISTIANS,

KNEW WHAT THEY HAD TO DO:

PRAY.

BUT PRAYER WASN'T THE FIRST

THING ON DON'S MIND.

I WAS ANGRY.

I WAS ANGRY AT GOD, THAT HE

HAD ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN.

AND I WAS ANGRY AT JOSEPH

BECAUSE HE MADE SOME

DECISIONS, AND I MADE SOME

DECISIONS, AND I WAS ANGRY

AT ME.

I COULD HAVE GOTTEN JOSEPH

OUT OF THERE, OKAY, WHEN HE

CROSSED IT.

BUT WHEN I CROSSED IT, THEN

THERE WAS NO WAY BACK.

Reporter: DON CALMED

DOWN AND TRIED TO MAKE A

9-1-1 CALL, BUT HE DIDN'T

HAVE A SIGNAL.

HE THREW THE PHONE TO ME

AND I WENT TO ANOTHER PART

OF THE CANYON ABOUT 100 FEET

AWAY.

BUT I WAS STILL IN YELLING

DISTANCE.

SO AS I MADE MY WAY UP

THROUGH THIS CREVICE, I WAS

YELLING TO HIM EVERY FIVE

MINUTES.

AND I BEGAN TO DECREE

THINGS, LIKE, OUR FATHER IS

WITH US.

THE ANGELS ARE HERE.

JESUS IS HERE.

WE'RE GOING TO BE ALL

RIGHT.

AS JOSEPH WAS CLIMBING

OUT, WE WERE PRAISING AND

PRAYING BETWEEN EACH OTHER.

AND I, FROM THERE, WENT

UP ABOUT 200 FEET, USING MY

BODY.

I NEVER CLIMBED BEFORE.

AND I KEPT HEARING THE HOLY

SPIRIT INSIDE OF ME, IT'S

GOING TO BE OKAY, GRAB MERE,

HERE, GRAB THERE, TURN THIS

WAY, AND TURN THAT WAY.

THE ONLY WAY YOU GET OUT

OF THIS SECTION OF THE

CANYON THAT WE WERE IN,

PEOPLE REPEL INTO IT.

ON ROPES.

AND YOU GO OUT ON THE

ROPES.

AND HE FREE-CLIMBED OUT OF

THAT CANYON.

Reporter: WHILE DON

WAITED AND PRAYED, JOSEPH

FOUND A MAN NAMED MICHAEL,

WHO HAD CLIMBING GEAR IN HIS

CAR.

DON WAS COLD AND IT STARTED

TO GET LATE.

MICHAEL REPELLED ABOUT

THREE FEET ABOVE ME.

THAT'S THE SAFEST PLACE.

HE SENT ME DOWN A JACKET

WHICH WAS A GOD-SEND.

Reporter: MICHAEL SAT

WITH HIM FOR THREE HOURS AS

THEY WAITED FOR THE

SEARCH-AND-RESCUE TEAM.

AND DURING THOSE THREE

HOURS, DON SHARED WITH

MICHAEL ABOUT GOD'S SAVING

GRACE.

THEY GOT HIM OUT OF THE

CANYON THE NEXT MORNING.

THEY TRANSFERRED HIM FROM

THE HELICOPTER BASKET TO THE

MEDICAL CART, AND IT WAS

VERY HARD BECAUSE OF THE

WIND FROM THE HELICOPTER AND

HE WAS VERY, VERY SICK AND

FRAGILE.

AND WE PUT HIM IN THE

AMBULANCE FROM THERE.

Reporter: LOOKING BACK

AT HOW GOD SAVED HIM IN THE

CANYON, DON SAYS A BIBLE

VERSE HELPED HIM MAKE IT

THROUGH THE NIGHT.

I WAS REMINDED OF ROMANS

8: 28, WHICH HAS BEEN A

SCRIPTURE FOR ME.

WE KNOW THAT GOD CAUSES ALL

THINGS TO WORK TOGETHER FOR

GOOD FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM

AND ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO

HIS PURPOSES.

JUST BELIEVE HIM AND

TRUST.

YOU HAVE TO TRUST.

AND IF THERE IS DOUBT, ASK

THE LORD, TAKE THIS DOUBT

AWAY.

I READ IN YOUR WORD YOU'RE

ALL POWERFUL, YOU'RE ALL

KNOWING, AND I WANT TO KNOW

THE ANSWER.

BUT YOU HAVE TO TRUST HIM

AND YOU HAVE TO ASK FOR

HELP.

Gordon: YOU DO HAVE TO

TRUST.

YOU DO HAVE TO ASK.

AND HERE IS THE SCRIPTURE

THAT DON SAID TO HIMSELF

THROUGHOUT THAT LONG NIGHT.

IT IS ROMANS 8: 28: "AND WE

KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK

TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THOSE

WHO LOVE GOD, TO THOSE WHO

ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS

PURPOSE."

NOW, DON'S IN A BAD PLACE.

AND SO OFTEN IN LIFE WHEN WE

GET INTO A BAD PLACE, WE

START GETTING MAD AT GOD.

AND WE START GETTING MAD AT

OTHER PEOPLE AND THE

DECISIONS THAT THEY'VE MADE

THAT HAVE PUT US IN THIS

POSITION.

AND FINALLY WE GET MAD AT

OURSELVES.

WHY DID WE ALLOW THAT TO

HAPPEN?

WHAT PART OF THE

DECISION-MAKING PROCESS DID

WE PLAY A ROLE IN?

AND WHY AM I IN THIS

PREDICAMENT?

IN ALL OF THAT COMPLAINING,

WE LOSE SIGHT OF THE FACT OF

WHAT ROMANS 8: 28 CLEARLY

SAYS, THAT ALL THINGS ARE

WORKING TOGETHER FOR OUR

GOOD.

THE AMAZING THING IS THAT

GOD CAN EVEN TAKE OUR

MISTAKES AND WORK THEM

TOGETHER FOR GOOD.

BECAUSE OUR MISTAKES ARE

PART OF ALL THINGS.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS TRIP,

IS GOD REALLY RESPONSIBLE

FOR IT?

IS HE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE

PREDICAMENT THEY FOUND

THEMSELVES IN?

NO.

THEY HAD THE CHOICE.

AND THEY CHOSE TO CONTINUE

GOING, IN THE FACE OF WE

CAN'T FIND THE TRAIL.

WE DON'T KNOW THE WAY OUT.

AND THEY DECIDED TO GO

DEEPER.

AND IN THAT GOT INTO SOME

VERY DEEP TROUBLE.

IS THAT GOD'S FAULT?

NO.

GOD HAS GIVEN US FREE WILL,

AND WE CAN MAKE CHOICES.

AND WE CAN EVEN MAKE CHOICES

THAT GET US IN TROUBLE.

BUT THEN WE HAVE THIS

FALLBACK, THAT ALL OF THOSE

THINGS GOD CAN WORK TOGETHER

FOR GOOD.

WHY?

BECAUSE WE LOVE HIM AND WE

ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS

PURPOSE.

NOW, SO OFTEN WHEN WE JUST

QUOTE ROMANS 8: 28, WE LOSE

SIGHT OF THE FACT OF THE

EARLIER VERSES IN THIS SAME

CHAPTER, WHICH SHOW WHY

THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR

GOOD.

AND DON AND JOSEPH'S STORY

ILLUSTRATE WHY IT WORKS

TOGETHER, BECAUSE BOTH OF

THEM WERE PRAYING.

AND IN THEIR PRAYER FOUND A

HELPER WHO WAS HELPING THEIR

PRAYER.

HERE IS VERSE 26: "LIKEWISE,

THE SPIRIT ALSO HELPS IN OUR

WEAKNESSES, FOR WE DO NOT

KNOW WHAT WE SHOULD PRAY FOR

AS WE OUGHT, BUT THE SPIRIT

HIMSELF MAKES INTERCESSION

FOR US WITH GROANINGS WHICH

CANNOT BE UTTERED."

NOW, HE WHO SEARCHES THE

HEART KNOWS WHAT THE MIND OF

THE SPIRIT IS BECAUSE HE

MAKES INTERCESSION FOR THE

SAINTS ACCORDING TO THE WILL

OF GOD.

NOW, WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND

THAT WHEN YOU'RE PRAYING,

THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS

PRAYING ALONG WITH YOU, AND

THAT HE IS INTERCEDING FOR

YOU AND INTERCEDING FOR ALL

OF THESE THINGS TO WORK

TOGETHER FOR GOOD, FOR THE

PREDICAMENT TO BE SOLVED --

WHEN YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENED

WITH DON AND JOSEPH, WHERE

JOSEPH WAS DIRECTED BY THE

HOLY SPIRIT HOW TO CLIMB OUT

OF A CANYON, AND A CANYON

THAT YOU ONLY REPEL INTO AND

YOU ONLY CLIMB UP ON THE

ROPE THAT GOT YOU THERE,

THAT EACH HAND HOLD WAS

SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED BY THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

START THINKING ABOUT YOUR

PREDICAMENT.

AND WHATEVER CANYON YOU MAY

BE IN.

IF YOU'RE WILLING TO PRAY

AND ASK FOR ASSISTANCE, THE

HOLY SPIRIT WILL COME

ALONGSIDE.

HE WILL BEGIN TO INTERCEDE

FOR YOU.

AND THEN HE'LL SPECIFICALLY

DIRECT YOU, HAND HOLD BY

HAND HOLD, UNTIL YOU ARE

ABLE TO CLIMB OUT.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR OTHERS,

HE WILL DO FOR YOU.

REALIZE THE GREATNESS OF HIS

POWER TOWARDS US WHO

BELIEVE.

WELL, COMING UP, WE'RE GOING

TO EXERCISE THAT POWER AND

WE'RE GOING TO BE PRAYING

FOR YOU.

FIRST, WE'VE GOT A GREAT

STORY FOR YOU.

DOCTORS DISCOVER THE CAUSE

OF ONE BABY'S EAR

INFECTION.

THE TYPE OF TUMOR HE HAD,

EVEN THROUGH CHEMO IT CAN

GROW.

THEY CALLED US INTO A

MEETING AND SAID, THIS IS

VERY SERIOUS.

HE BASICALLY HAS A 10% TO

30% CHANCE OF LIVING.

Gordon: HOW THIS CHILD,

THROUGH PRAYER, BEAT THE

ODDS.

UP NEXT.

Gordon: 10-MONTH-OLD

LANDON SANDRAL WON'T STOP

CRYING.

HE WAS THE IDEAL BABY, EASY

GOING, INCREDIBLY CUTE, BUT

WHEN HE BECAME INCONSOLABLE,

HIS FAMILY TOOK HIM TO THE

DOCTOR, WHO SAW A TUMOR THE

SIZE OF A GOLF BALL SITTING

ON THE BASE OF LANDON'S

BRAIN.

HE WAS A VERY SWEET BABY,

QUIET, NOT MUCH BOTHERED

HIM.

WE WERE JUST STARTLED,

ABSOLUTELY STARTLED.

YOU HEAR PEOPLE SAY BRAIN

TUMOR AND IT CONJURES UP THE

WORST THING POSSIBLE.

LANDON'S MOM IS PRETTY

YOUNG, SO WE TOOK A VERY

ACTIVE ROLE IN RAISING

LANDON AND CARING FOR HIM

AND BEING AROUND HIM.

HE WAS A GOOD LITTLE GUY.

HE SLEPT WELL.

HE ATE WELL.

HE WAS A GOOD BABY.

ABOUT 10 MONTHS OLD HE

HAD GOTTEN AN EAR INFECTION,

AND HE JUST STARTED ACTING A

LOT DIFFERENT THAN NORMAL.

A LOT MORE FUSSY, CRYING A

LOT MORE.

THE DOCTOR SAID, WE HAVE

FOUND WHAT THE PROBLEM IS.

AND SHE CALLED ME IN AND SHE

SHOWED ME THE X-RAY.

AND SHE SAID, HE HAS A BRAIN

TUMOR, ABOUT FOUR

CENTIMETRES.

IT IS AT THE BACK OF HIS

BRAIN.

THEY TOOK HIM TO

I.C.RIGHT AWAY.

C. RIGHT AWAY AND THEY TOOK

HIM INTO SURGERY.

ONCE WE GOT THROUGH THE

INITIAL PANIC, WE ALL

STARTED PRAYING.

WE PASSED THE WORD AROUND

AND WE WERE CALLING FRIENDS

AND FAMILY AND TELLING THEM

SO THEY COULD BE IN PRAYER.

THE FIRST THING THEY DID

WAS A TEMPORARY SHUNT

BECAUSE THE BRAIN TUMOR WAS

BLOCKING FLUID FROM DRAINING

IN HIS BRAIN.

TWO AND A HALF WEEKS AFTER

THE TEMPORARY SHUNT WAS

PLACED, THEY DID WHAT WAS

CALLED A RESECTION, WHERE

THEY TRIED TO GET THE

MAJORITY OF THE TUMOR OUT.

AND THE TUMOR WAS INTWINED.

THEY GOT PROBABLY 95% OF

THE TUMOR.

IT WAS NEAR HIS SPINAL

CORD.

IF THEY HAD DONE ANYTHING

MORE, THEY COULD HAVE

DAMAGED HIS SPINAL CORD AND

CAUSED PERMANENT PHYSICAL

DAMAGE, SO THEY HAD TO

STOP.

THEY CALLED US INTO A

MEETING, THE SURGEON AND THE

MEDICAL PEOPLE, CALLED US

ALL IN AND SAID, THIS IS

VERY SERIOUS.

HE BASICALLY HAS A 10% TO

30% CHANCE OF LIVING.

THE TYPE OF TUMOR HE HAD,

EVEN THROUGH CHEMO IT CAN

GROW.

AND EVEN WITH THE CHEMO

TREATMENT, IT HAS A LARGE

POTENTIAL FOR PHYSICAL

PROBLEMS LATER.

IT WAS ROUGHLY SIX ROUNDS OF

CHEMO HE WOULD NEED TO GO

THROUGH.

I JUST THOUGHT, OKAY, I'M

JUST GOING TO LISTEN TO ALL

OF THIS.

BUT I'M GOING TO CLING TO

GOD'S WORD, THAT I WAS GOING

TO LEAN ON JEREMIAH 29: 11,

AND WE WOULD READ THE

SCRIPTURES WE WERE GOING TO

HANG OR HEAD ON.

YOU DON'T LEAVE A 10 MONTH

OLD BABY ALONE IN THE

HOSPITAL, AND WE NEEDED TO

CALL ON OUR FRIENDS AND

CHURCH FRIENDS TO HELP US

OUT.

WE WOULD COME HOME FOR A

COUPLE OF DAYS AND HE WOULD

GET SICK AND RUN A FEVER AND

WE WOULD NEED TO TAKE HIM

BACK.

OUT OF THAT WHOLE PERIOD OF

TIME, FROM OCTOBER TO JUNE,

WE WERE HOME A TOTAL OF

MAYBE 10 DAYS.

WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME AT

THE HOSPITAL THINKING, HE

MAY BE AN INVALID, HE MAY

MEI BMAY BE IN A

WHEELCHAIR.

WE REALLY DON'T KNOW WHERE

WE WERE GOING TO BE AT THE

END OF THIS.

IT WAS SCARY.

IT WAS REALLY SCARY.

JEREMIAH 29: 11-13.

WE PICKED THE SCRIPTURE OUT

AND I DECIDED I WOULD MAKE A

LITTLE BANNER OR POSTER TO

KIND OF ALWAYS STAY FOCUSED

ON THAT.

WHEN WE GOT HOME AFTER

ALL OF THE CHEMO, LANDON WAS

IN ISOLATION FOR 90 DAYS.

WE WENT BACK FOR A

ROUTINE FOLLOWUP M.R.I. IN

AUGUST, AND THEY DISCOVERED

THAT THERE WAS JUST A

MISALIGNMENT AT THE TOP OF

HIS SPINE, RIGHT AT THE VERY

BASE OF HIS NECK.

AND THEY DISCOVERED HE HAD

AN INSTABILITY OF THE

SPINE.

THEY DID NOT WANT TO DO THE

SURGERY AND FUSE THE SPINE

BECAUSE THAT WOULD PUT A

METAL ROD IN THERE, WHICH

WOULD BLOCK THE SITE OF ANY

REMNANT OF TUMOR THAT WAS

THERE.

THEY DECIDED THEY WERE

GOING TO PUT THE BRACE ON

HIM.

SO THEY BUILT A CUSTOM-MADE

BRACE FROM HIS NECK TO HIS

FEET WHICH HE WORRY

BASICALLY 24/7.

PROBABLY ABOUT A YEAR AND A

HALF LATER, THE BRACE

REDUCED TO A NECK BRACE.

SO IT WAS FROM THE CHEST TO

THE NECK.

WE WERE GOING FOR THE

M.R.I.s EVERY THREE

MONTHS, AND THEN EVENTUALLY

THE THREE MONTHS WENT TO SIX

MONTHS.

THE SIX MONTHS WENT TO NINE

MONTHS.

AND THE NINE MONTHS WENT TO

A YEAR.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED AS A

RESULT OF THE CERVICAL SPINE

DISABILITY IS THAT LANDON'S

SPINE HAS FUSED TOGETHER AND

IT HAS GROWN AND STABILIZED

AND HE NEVER NEEDED THE

SURGERY.

HE NEVER HAD IT.

HI, MOM!

SOMETIMES I JUST LOOK AT

HIM AND I JUST SAY, I THANK

YOU, GOD.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORD.

AND THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU

DID.

HE IS IN SECOND GRADE AND

HE IS DOING GREAT.

I LIKE MATH AND ART.

MATH AND ART.

I LIKE MUSIC.

I LIKE COMPUTERS.

I CAN WEI BASEBALL.

I LIKE GOING OUTSIDE AND

PLAYING.

HE HAS PLAYED A COUPLE OF

SEASONS OF SOCCER.

I CAN KICK THE BALL

AROUND.

WE DO TENNIS, RIDE BIKES,

NORMAL KIDS' STUFF.

I STILL CAN'T RIDE

STRAIGHT.

I PRAY AT CHURCH.

I PRAY AT HOME.

I ALSO PRAY AT NIGHT.

IT'S AN ABOUTFACE.

YOU KNOW, A LONG TIME AGO I

WOULD HAVE GIVEN UP.

I HAVE LEARNED TO REALLY,

REALLY TRUST IN GOD'S WORD

AND TO RELY ON IT.

AND WHEN I HAVE NOTHING ELSE

TO HOLD ON TO, I HOLD ON TO

GOD'S WORD BECAUSE HIS WORD

IS TRUE.

Gordon: HERE IS THE

WORD THEY HELD ON TO, AND

YOU CAN HOLD ON TO IT, TOO.

IT'S FROM JEREMIAH 29: "FOR

I KNOW THE THOUGHTS THAT I

THINK TOWARDS YOU, SAYS THE

LORD, THOUGHTS OF PEACE AND

NOT OF EVIL.

TO GIVE YOU A FUTURE AND A

HOPE.

THEN YOU WILL CALL UPON ME

AND GO AND PRAY TO ME.

AND I WILL LISTEN TO YOU.

AND YOU WILL SEEK ME AND

FIND ME WHEN YOU SEARCH FOR

ME WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART."

THAT WAS THEIR LIFE VERSE.

IF YOU'VE GOT ONE, AND YOU

WANT TO SHARE IT WITH US,

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

OUR Facebook PAGE, AND

THERE IS A PLACE WHERE YOU

CAN TELL YOUR STORY, A VERSE

THAT GOT YOU THROUGH AND IS

GETTING YOU THROUGH LIFE.

REALIZE THAT'S A WONDERFUL

ONE.

GOD HAS PLANS FOR YOU.

HE HAS A PURPOSE FOR YOU, TO

GIVE YOU A HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

DON'T EVER THINK THAT HIS

THOUGHTS TOWARDS YOU ARE

EVIL.

HE WANTS TO WORK ALL THINGS

TOGETHER FOR GOOD.

AND HE WANTS FOR US TO COME

TO HIM IN PRAYER.

GO BOLDLY TO THE THRONE OF

GRACE, REALIZING JESUS HAS

PAID IT ALL.

HE HAS DONE IT ALL.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.

AND BEFORE WE PRAY, WE'VE

GOTTEN SOME PRAYER REQUESTS,

SO LET'S GO OVER TO JESSICA

TO FIND OUT MORE.

GORDON, WE HAVE A LOT OF

PEOPLE POSTING THEIR PRAYER

REQUESTS ON OUR Facebook

PAGE.

PATSY WRITES IN, "MY TWO

DAUGHTERS ARE BOTH REALLY

SIX.

EMILY IS 17 AND HAS LUPUS,

AND SARAH IS 21 AND SUFFERS

FROM CHRONIC HEADACHES AND

FIBROMYALGIA.

PLEASE PRAY THAT GOD WILL

TOTALLY HEAL MY GIRLS AND

BRING US ALL THROUGH THIS

CRISIS."

JEN SAYS, "MY DAD NEEDS YOUR

PRAYERS.

THE DOCTORS SAY HE DOESN'T

HAVE MUCH TIME AND THERE IS

NOTHING THEY CAN DO, BUT I

KNOW GOD HEALS.

PLEASE PRAY THAT GOD WILL

BRING US ALL THROUGH THIS.

IT HAS BEEN SO HARD TO SEE

MY DAD SUFFER."

TERRY?

Terry: THESE ARE REALLY

SERIOUS PERSONAL NEEDS, AND

I IMAGINE THERE ARE SOME OF

YOU OUT THERE WHO WOULD LIKE

TO HAVE NEEDS PRAYED FOR AS

WELL.

WE WANT TO TAKE SOME TIME TO

PRAY FOR YOU.

MY LIFE VERSE IS PHILLIPIANS

4: 19: "MY GOD WILL SUPPLY

ALL YOUR NEEDS ACCORDING TO

HIS GLORIOUS RICHES IN

CHRIST JESUS."

YOU SEE, HE IS OUR ALL IN

ALL.

AND HE HAS EVERYTHING WE

NEED.

IT IS ALL AVAILABLE TO US.

THAT'S PART OF OUR

INHERITANCE AS HIS KIDS.

LET'S PRAY FOR PATSY AND HER

DAUGHTERS AND JEN AND HER

DAD.

AND YOU BE LIFTING UP YOUR

NEEDS.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO SPEAK THEM

OUT LOUD FOR GOD TO KNOW

WHAT YOUR NEED IS.

FATHER, YOU ARE THE FATHER

OF US ALL.

WE ARE YOUR KIDS, AND YOU'VE

SAID EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE

IS YOURS.

SO TODAY WE CLAIM THAT,

LORD.

WE PRAY.

WE PRAY FOR PATSY AND HER

DAUGHTERS.

WE PRAY FOR THE YOUNGEST

DAUGHTER, EMILY, WITH LUPUS,

AND FOR SARAH, WHO IS

SUFFERING WITH CHRONIC

HEADACHES AND FIBROMYALGIA.

GOD, WE JUST ASK YOU TO HEAL

THEIR BODIES.

WE PRAY THAT ALL THESE

PROMISES, ALL OF THE

SCRIPTURE THAT WE'VE SPOKEN,

WOULD COME TO PASS AND BE

REAL FOR THEM NOW, GOD.

WE SPEAK IT OUT LOUD.

THE PROMISES OF WHO YOU

ARE.

YOU ARE PRESENT WITH THEM,

PRESENT IN THEM.

AND THEN, FATHER, WE WANT TO

PRAY FOR JEN'S FATHER, LEO,

AS WELL, WHO IS SUFFERING

FROM C.O.P.D. AND FROM

CANCER.

JESUS, WOULD YOU JUST, WITH

A GLANCE THEIR WAY, TOUCH

THEIR LIVES.

WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD BRING

THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN TO

EARTH, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.

THAT THERE ARE BODIES THAT

ALIGN THEMSELVES WITH THE

PERFECT WILL OF YOU, LORD

JESUS.

AND THAT ALL THINGS WOULD BE

SET IN ORDER AND SET RIGHT.

AND WE PROMISE TO GIVE YOU

THE GLORY, LORD.

AND WE SAY THANK YOU IN

ADVANCE FOR WHAT YOU'RE

DOING.

I PRAY THAT YOU WOULD GIVE

PEACE TO THE HEARTS OF THOSE

WHO LOVE THEM AND WHO ARE

SERVING THEM AND STANDING

STRONG WITH THEM, AND, GOD,

THAT YOU WOULD REMIND US TO

PRAY.

REMIND US TO PRAY, LORD.

YOU SAY WE HAVE NOT BECAUSE

WE ASK NOT.

AND YET YOU KNOW THE VERY

CRY OF OUR HEARTS.

SO TODAY WE RELEASE ALL OF

OUR LOVED ONES TO YOU, GOD.

ALL WHO ARE HEAVY UPON OUR

HEARTS.

ALL WHO HAVE NEEDS, ALL WHO

HAVE ILLNESS.

JESUS, BE OUR ALL IN ALL.

BE OUR ALL IN ALL.

WE RECEIVE TODAY EVERYTHING

THAT YOU HAVE TO GIVE.

AND WE THANK YOU FOR WHO YOU

ARE AND FOR LOVING US SO

AMAZINGLY.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS A

WOMAN, YOU'RE SUFFERING WITH

ESOPHAGEAL CANCER, AND

YOU'RE BLAMING YOURSELF FOR

YOUR CANCER.

AND GOD JUST WANTS YOU TO

KNOW THAT ALL OF YOUR SINS

HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN.

THEY ARE ALL UNDER THE BLOOD

OF THE LAMB.

HE DOESN'T SEE THEM

ANYMORE.

AND HE WANTS TO HEAL YOU.

AND SO RIGHT NOW HE IS

REACHING DOWN AND HE'S

TAKING THAT CANCER OUT OF

YOUR ESOPHAGUS.

HE IS HEALING THE LINING.

HE IS GIVING YOU BACK THE

ABILITY TO SWALLOW WITHOUT

ANY PAIN.

HE IS RESTORING YOU AND

RESTORING YOUR SOUL.

WALK FREE FROM ALL OF YOUR

PAST.

WALK FREE OF IT AND WALK

INTO HIS WONDERFUL LIFE.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

IT'S COMING TO YOU NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: THERE IS ALSO

SOMEONE WITH AN EAR

CONDITION.

YOU HAVE, LIKE, THIS STRANGE

CONSTANT RINGING IN YOUR

EAR, A VERY HALLOW SOUNDING,

LIKE YOU'RE IN A LONG

CORRIDOR.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

IT IS JUST GOING TO WANE AND

STOP IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: ONE MORE, LYNN,

GOD KNOWS YOUR NAME.

AND HE KNOWS.

AND HE LOVES YOU.

AND HE WANTS TO DO THIS FOR

YOU.

SO JUST BE HEALED NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Gordon: AND AMEN.

PRAISE GOD.

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, HOW VIEWERS LIKE YOU

ANSWERED ONE COUPLE'S

PRAYERS.

WE'VE GOT THAT FOR YOU RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Terry: WHEN BABY LESLIE

WAS BORN WITH SEVERE MEDICAL

PROBLEMS, HER PARENTS

COULDN'T AFFORD THE SURGERY

SHE NEEDED.

IN FACT, THEY COULD BARELY

AFFORD TO FEED HER.

MARGARET AND INGRID

WAITED WITH EXCITEMENT FOR

THE ARRIVAL OF THEIR FIRST

CHILD.

MY PREGNANCY WAS A

BLESSING.

I WAS WAITING TO FIND OUT IF

IT WAS A BOY OR A GIRL.

Reporter: BUT LATE IN

THE PREGNANCY, A DOCTOR GAVE

THEM SOME TROUBLING NEWS,

THEIR DAUGHTER WOULD BE BORN

WITH A CLEFT LIP AND

PALATE.

I TOLD MY WIFE WE SHOULD

PRAY TO GOD WITH ALL OF OUR

HEARTS.

I NEVER CRIED IN FRONT OF

HER, NEVER IN FRONT OF HER.

I DECIDED TO BE STRONG TO

HELP HER.

Reporter: AFTER LESLIE

WAS BORN, INGRID CARED FOR

THEIR DAUGHTER THE BEST WAY

SHE COULD.

AND MARVIN WORKED HARD, SO

HE COULD AFFORD THE SURGERY

FOR THE CLEFT LIP AND

PALATE.

AND THEN RECENTLY MARVIN

LOST HIS JOB.

OUR FINANCIAL SITUATION

WAS VERY DIFFICULT.

WE HAD TO ASK FOR HIM JUST

TO BUY FOOD AND FORMULA FOR

THE BABY.

Reporter: ONE DAY

MARVIN LEARNED ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING" IN

GUATEMALA.

HE QUICKLY CONTACTED US FOR

HELP.

A FEW DAYS LATER, A SURGEON

OPERATED ON LESLIE AND

REPAIRED HER CLEFT LIP.

AND SOON AFTER THAT, THEY

CORRECTED HER CLEFT PALATE.

WE ARE SO THANKFUL TO GOD

FIRST, AND "OPERATION

BLESSING," AND I HOPE THAT

GOD BLESSES YOU AND GIVES

YOU STRENGTH TO HELP MORE

PEOPLE.

Terry: IT IS A

SATISFYING THING TO KNOW YOU
