An unplugged television set interrupts a suicide attempt. Plus, a prayer on The 700 Club leads to a miraculous realignment of vertebrae. Read Transcript


I NEEDED MONEY.

I NEEDED TO GET AN

APARTMENT.

SHE STRIPPED TO SURVIVE.

I KNEW THAT IT WAS ALL

SURVIVAL MODE, ALL OF IT WAS

SURVIVAL.

Wendy: AND THEN SHE

DIDN'T WANT TO LIVE.

DEATH SEEMED PERFECT.

DEATH SEEMED TRANQUIL.

Wendy: WATCH WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN DEATH INVESTS

VISITS HER ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

SOMETHING ELSE CAME IN

THE HALL.

IT WAS VERY, VERY DARK AND

VERY, VERY SCARY.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS.

WE'VE INVESTIGATE A GREAT

PROGRAM FOR YOU, YOU DON'T

WANT TO MISS ANYTHING,

ESPECIALLY THAT STRIPPER

THAT WAS VISITED BY DEMONS.

WHAT A STORY.

ANYHOW, IS THERE ANY WONDER

WE DON'T BELIEVE THE

PRESIDENT.

HE SAYS, I'M NOT GOING TO

PUT AMERICAN TROOPS IN

HARM'S WAY INTO IRAQ.

AND A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER,

HE SAYS, BY THE WAY, I

DECIDED I'M GOING TO SEND

SOME MARINES OVER THERE AND

SOME SEALS.

Terry: IT IS A CRAZY

SITUATION.

Pat: IT IS A CRAZY

SITUATION.

HE DISP DOESN'T KNOW WHAT

HE IS DOING.

IT IS ASHAMED TO BE GOVERNED

BY NOVICES.

BUT YOU CHOSE HIM.

GOOD FOR YOU.

IN IRAQ, CHRISTIANS HAVE

FLED FROM THE NORTH TO GET

AWAY FROM THE TERRORISTS.

Terry: AMERICA IS EVEN

CONSIDERING WORKING WITH ITS

ARCH ENEMY, IRAN, TO STOP

THE DANGEROUS VIOLENCE IN

IRAQ.

WE HAVE TWO REPORTS FROM CBN

NEWS, BEGINNING WITH

CHARLENE AARON.

Reporter: PREPARATIONS

TO HOUSE THOUSANDS OF

FLEEING IRAQI KEY IRAQIS

ARE UNDER WAY IN KURDS.

THIS AREAS BELONGS TO THE

CHRISTIANS AND KURDS.

WE'RE HAPPY THESE PEOPLE

HAVE COME HERE.

THEY'RE WELCOME, EVERYONE

IS.

Reporter: RESIDENTS

FROM MOSUL AND OTHER PARTS

OF IRAQ ARE BEGINNING TO

ARRIVE AFTER THE ISLAMIC

STATE IN SYRIA CAPTURED KEY

CITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

EVERYBODY LEFT THEIR

HOMES.

WE WERE FORCED OUT OF OURS.

THERE IS DEATH IN MOSUL.

Reporter: THE PRESIDENT

TOLD CONGRESS ON MONDAY THAT

275 TROOPS WILL BE DEPLOYED

TO PROTECT STAFF AT THE U.S.

EMBASSY IN BAG SEE. BAGHDAD.

WHILE THE MISSION IS

NON-COMBATIVE, THE U.S.

SOLDIERS ARE ABLE TO DEFEND

THEMSELVES IF ATTACKED.

ONE SENIOR OFFICIAL SAID UP

TO 100 SPECIAL FORCES

SOLDIERS COULD ALSO JOIN

THEM.

AMERICA HAS A NUMBER OF

MILITARY ASSETS IN THE

REGION, INCLUDING FOUR WAR

SHIPS, AND TWO SHIPS THAT

CAN FIRE CRUISE MISSILES.

MEANWHILE, U.S. AND IRANIAN

OFFICIALS ARE REPORTEDLY

HOLDING RARE TALKS ON HOW TO

STOP THE INSURGENTS FROM

GAINING MORE GROUND IN

IRAQ.

THE SENIOR MILITARY

COMMANDER OF IRAQ AS ELITE

KUDS FORCE IS IN BAGHDAD

THIS WEEK.

I THINK WE'RE OPEN TO ANY

CONSTRUCTIVE PROCESS THAT

COULD MINIMIZE THE VIOLENCE,

HOLD IRAQ TOGETHER, THE

INTEGRITY OF THE COUNTRY,

AND ELIMINATE THE PRESENCE

OF OUTSIDE TERRORIST FORCES

THAT ARE RIPPING IT APART.

Reporter: IRAQI

GOVERNMENT FORCES ARE ALSO

ENGAGED IN THE FIGHT, TRYING

TO SLOW THE ISLAMISTS'

APPROACH ON THE CAPITAL

CITY.

TODAY THEY LAUNCHED MULTIPLE

STRIKES ON TERRORISTS'

POSITIONS SOME 40 MILES FROM

BAGHDAD.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: THIS IS CHRIS

MITCHELL REPORTING FROM

IRBIL, IRAQ.

THOUSANDS OF IRAQIS HAVE

FLED THE FIGHTING AND COME

HERE TO IRBIL.

THEY FLED THE BLOOD BATH

ACROSS NORTHERN AND CENTRAL

IRAQ.

IT IS UNLIKELY THAT ISIS

WILL TURN NORTH BECAUSE THEY

WOULD FACE A FORMIDABLE

FOE.

IT IS A KEY TIME FOR THE

REGION, AND ESPECIALLY HERE

FOR THE KURDISH PEOPLE.

THEY FACE AN HISTORIC

CROSSROADS AND THE VERY REAL

POSSIBILITY THEY COULD

DECLARE THEMSELVES AN

INDEPENDENT STATE.

WITH THE U.S. SEEKING TO

DISENGAGE FROM THE

INTERNATIONAL ARENA, AND THE

REST OF THE COMMUNITY

UNWILLING TO IND VENE,

INTERVENE, IRAQ COULD FACE

SOME OF ITS MOST DIFFICULT

DAYS AHEAD.

THESE ARE THE LANDS OF THE

BIBLE, THE LAND OF NINEVEH

AND THE PROPHET JONAH, AND

MANY BELIEVE THIS LAND HAS A

PROPHETIC PROMISE IN THE

ISAIAH 19, IT SAYS, "SYRIA

IS THE WORK OF MY HANDS."

BAY OF THE TURMOIL AND THE

FIGHTING, IRAQI CHRISTIANS

ARE SENDING OUT AN URGENT

PRAYER REQUEST TO CHRISTIANS

AROUND THE WORLD TO PRAY

THAT PEACE WILL COME TO

THESE PEOPLE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

IRBIL, IRAQ.

Pat: THANKS, CHRIS.

WITHOUT QUESTION, THE KURDS

NEED AN INDEPENDENT STATE.

THEY'RE VERY NICE PEOPLE.

THEY'VE SET UP A VERY NICE

ENCLAVE THERE.

THE RULE OF LAW, BUSINESS IS

GOING ALONG SWIMMINGLY, AND

THEY'VE MADE THE MOVE OF

TAKING OVER THE KIRKUK OIL

FIELDS.

SO THEY'RE IN PRETTY GOOD

SHAPE.

WHY SHOULD WE SPEND A LOT OF

MONEY TO, QUOTE,"HOLD IRAQ

TOGETHER," LIKE, WHO CARES?

IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER.

THE TRIBAL TENSIONS OF

THERE.

WHY SHOULD WE TRY TO GLOSS

OVER THEM.

THE SUNNIS DON'T LIKE THE

SHI'AS, AND THE SHI'AS DON'T

LIKE THE SUNNIS.

LET THEM HAVE AT IT.

WHY SHOULD WE GET INVOLVED

AND HAVE OUR SOLDIERS LOSE

THEIR LIVES AS THEY HAVE.

AND THEN SURRENDER THE

HARD-WON GAINS TO THIS BUNCH

OF TERRORISTS THAT ARE

RUNNING AROUND.

BUT THE INCREDIBLE THING IS

WE'RE GOING TO REACH OUT TO

EASTERN.

IRAN.

EASTERN IS OUR BIGGEST

ENEMY.

IRAN HATES US AND THEY WANT

TO DESTROY US.

AND THEY WANT TO BRING IN

THE MATI, AND THEY WANT TO

BUILD NUCLEAR WEAPONS SO

THEY CAN THREATEN ISRAEL.

THEY BACK HEZBOLLAH IN

LEBANON, AND THEY BACK OTHER

RADICAL ORGANIZATIONS, AND

SUDDENLY THEY'VE BECOME OUR

ALLIES, AND THEY'RE GOING TO

WORK WITH US AGAINST THE,

QUOTE,"TERRORISTS."

WHO ARE WE KIDDING?

SECRETARY KERRY, PLEASE WAKE

UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE.

WELL, HERE AT HOME,

REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS

AREN'T BUYING THAT NONSENSE

THAT HAS COME OUT OF THE

I.R.S.

THAT SOMEHOW THE TEA PARTY

DOCUMENTS FROM LOIS LERNER

GOT LOST.

TWO YEARS OF E-MAILS LOST?

NOT A CHANCE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN NEWS

ROOM.

Reporter: PAT, HOUSE

REPUBLICANS ARE STEPPING UP

THEIR PROBE INTO THE I.R.S.

SCANDAL AFTER THE TAX AGENCY

SAYS IT LOST MORE THAN TWO

YEARS OF E-MAILS THAT ARE A

KEY PART OF THE

INVESTIGATION.

DARRELL ISSA TOLD THE I.R.S.

COMMISSIONER, QUOTE,"I WILL

NOT TOLERATE YOUR CONTINUED

OBSTRUCTION AND GAME-PLAYING

IN THE RESPONSE TO THE

COMMITTEE'S INVESTIGATION."

THE I.R.S. COMMISSIONER SAYS

HE WILL TESTIFY BEFORE TWO

COMMITTEE HEARINGS ABOUT THE

E-MAILS NEXT WEEK.

A FIVE-YEAR-OLD CHILD WAS

KILLED AFTER MASSIVE DUAL

TORNADOES SWEPT THROUGH

NEBRASKA ON MONDAY.

AT LEAST 19 PEOPLE WERE

INJURED AFTER TWIN TORNADOES

TOUCHED DOWN ROUGHLY WITHIN

A MILE OF EACH OTHER.

IT HAPPENED ABOUT 100 MILES

NORTHEAST OF OMAHA IN THE

TOWN OF PILGER.

THE TWISTER IS REPORTEDLY TO

BE THE DEADLY EF-4s.

ONE UP TO 100 MILES PER

HOUR.

A COUNTY SPOKESMAN SAYS HALF

THE TINY TOWN WAS WIPED

OUT.

EVERYTHING LIFTED OFF OF

US.

AND THE HEATER SMASHED OVER

ME AND MY BODY.

ME AND MY BODY WERE PINNED

IN BETWEEN THE TWO BRIDGES,

OFF THE TOP OF OUR

BASEMENT.

WE LOOKED BACK AT DONNY, AND

WE THOUGHT HE WAS GONE FOR A

LONG TIME.

WE KEPT YELLING AND THEN

PULLED HIM OUT, AND DRUG HIM

OUT, AND THE THREE OF US,

SOMEHOW WE'RE ALL FINE.

Reporter: DUAL

TORNADOES ARE RARE ENOUGH,

BUT THE NATIONAL WEATHER

SERVICE SAYS IT IS VERY

UNUSUAL FOR THEM TO HAVE

FUNNEL CLOUDS ROUGHLY THE

SAME STRENGTH.

CHURCHES THAT HOLD

GRADUATION CEREMONIES MAY

HAVE TO HIDE THEIR CROSSES

AND OTHER RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS

DURING THE EVENT.

THE U.S. SUPREME COURT SAYS

DISPLAYING SUCH SYMBOLS

DURING A GRADUATION VIOLATES

THE CONSTITUTION.

A FEDERAL COURT IN CHICAGO

ISSUED THAT DECISION BACK IN

2012.

THE EMBROOK COURT DISTRICT

APPEALED, BUT THE SUPREME

COURT TURNED IT DOWN.

Pat: THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE WOULDN'T HAVE VOTED

IN HOMOSEXUALITY, BUT THE

COURTS DID.

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WOULDN'T

HAVE VOTED IN SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE, BUT THE COURTS

DID.

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WOULDN'T

HAVE GIVEN UP THE 10

COMMANDMENTS IN COURTS AND

SCHOOLS, BUT THE COURTS

INSISTED ON IT.

A FEW LEFT-LEANING JUDGES

HAVE TWISTED THE

CONSTITUTION WAY BEYOND

ANYTHING THE FOUNDERS

INTENDED.

THEY HAVE GONE THE INTENT OF

THE FOUNDERS, AND THEY'VE

GONE BEHIND THE FEDERALIST

PAPERS AND OTHER DOCUMENTS,

AND THEY HAVE CREATED A

JURISPRUDENCE THAT IS JUST

RIDICULOUS.

SOONER OR LATER SOMETHING

HAS GOT TO BE DONE TO SAY,

LISTEN, THIS IS ABSURD WHAT

YOU'RE DOING.

BUT THE IDEA OF A CHURCH

HAVING TO HIDE CROSSES AND

SYMBOLS, THEY WANT THEM TO

SMASH OUT THE STAINED GLASS

WINDOWS THAT SHOWED JESUS?

DO THEY WANT THEM TO DO THAT

SO IT WON'T BE OFFENSIVE TO

THE ACLU?

SOONER OR LATER WE HAVE TO

GET BACK TO THE UNITING

PRINCIPLE WE HAD IN THIS

NATION.

WE WERE A NATION THAT

BELIEVED IN LAW.

WE WERE A NATION THAT

BELIEVED IN GOD.

WE WERE A NATION THAT

BELIEVED IN THE BIBLE.

AND NOW THERE ARE A NEW

ELECTIVE JUDGES -- JUST A

FEW -- HAVE DISTORTED THE

HISTORY OF OUR NATION TO

GIVE US SOMETHING WE NEVER

INTENDED TO HAVE.

AND SOMETHING HAS GOT TO BE

DONE ABOUT IT.

EPHRAIM?

Reporter: THE UNITED

STATES STARTED OFF THE WORLD

CUP CHAMPIONSHIPS IN BRAZIL

WITH A BIG VICTORY.

THEY BEAT GHANA 2-1 IN A

NAIL-BITING MATCH.

IT STARTED WITH A STUNNING

GOAL FROM AMERICAN CLINT

DEMOCRACY IN THE FIRST 30

SECONDS OF THE GAME, EARNING

HIM THE FIFTH QUICKEST GOAL

IN WORLD CUP HISTORY.

DONNA TIED UP THE SCORE LATE

AND THE SECOND HALF, BUT

SUBSTITUTE JOHN BROOKS

PUNCHED IN THE WINNING GOAL

IN A CORNER KICK.

MASSIVE VIEWING PARTIES WERE

HELD FROM CALIFORNIA TO

MISSOURI TO SOUTH DAKOTA.

THE VICTORY WAS ESPECIALLY

SWEET FOR U.S.A. BECAUSE

GHANA HAD KNOCKED THE WORLD

CUP OUT IN 2006 AND 2010.

TOMORROW, WE'RE SHOW YOU HOW

CHURCHES IN BRAZIL ARE

MOBILIZING TO REACH PEOPLE

WITH THE GOSPEL AND FIGHT

HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

A NEW STUDY SAYS SITTING HOW

MUCH CAN RAISE YOUR RISK OF

CERTAIN TYPES OF CANCER.

THE STUDY IS A REVIEW OF 43

STUDIES WITH MORE THAN FOUR

MILLION PEOPLE, AND IT SAYS

IT IS IMPORTANT NOT ONLY TO

BE ACTIVE, BUT TO SPEND LESS

TIME SITTING.

ONE EXPERT TELLS "TIME

MAGAZINE" PEOPLE CAN TAKE

BREAKS FROM SITTING, AT HOME

OR AT WORK, BY GETTING UP

AND WALKING AROUND.

AND, PAT, WE KNOW YOU STAY

ACTIVE, INCLUDING RIDING

YOUR HORSE.

Pat: I'M SITTING ON THE

HORSE.

BUT, LET ME TELL YOU, I'VE

WORKED HIM SO HARD

YESTERDAY, I'M SORE ALL

OVER.

Terry: THAT'S NOT

STATIONARY SITTING.

YOU'RE IN MOTION.

Pat: I HAD A WORKOUT

YESTERDAY, HE AND I

TOGETHER, AND WE'RE GOING TO

HAVE ANOTHER ONE DESPITE THE

HEAT TODAY.

Terry: COMING UP, MEET

A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN

NAMED RUPA, AND HEAR HOW SHE

WENT FROM PICKING TRASH TO

FORCED PROSTITUTION.

AND THEN WATCH HER AMAZING

TRANSFORMATION.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

Pat: WELL, THERE IS A

DIRTY LITTLE SECRET IN INDIA

THAT THEY DON'T LIKE TO TALK

ABOUT VERY MUCH.

BUT THEY HAVE A CAST

SYSTEM.

AND THE CAST SYSTEM, LIKE IT

OR NOT, IS BASED ON SKIN

COLOR.

THE WHITE-SKINNED PEOPLE ARE

NORMALLY IN THE BRAMMAN

CLASS, THE HIGHER CLASSES,

AND THE SO-CALLED

UNTOUCHABLES ARE DALITS,

DARK SKINNED, SOME AS MUCH

AS TOTALLY BLACK.

LIKE IT OR NOT, THAT IS THE

TYPE OF APARTHEID THAT WE

DON'T HEAR TOO MUCH ABOUT.

WE CONDEMN SOUTH AFRICA FOR

ITS FORMER APAR APARTHEID,

BUT WE DON'T SAY MUCH ABOUT

INDIA.

RECENTLY TWO DALIT GIRLS

WERE GANG RAPED AND LEFT

HANGING DEAD IN A TREE.

BUT THERE WAS VERY LITTLE

OUTRAGE BECAUSE THERE CRIMES

AGAINST WOMEN ARE ALL TOO

COMMON, ESPECIALLY WOMEN

LIKE THESE MURDERED GIRLS,

WHO WERE PART OF WHAT I SAID

IS INDIA'S UNTOUCHABLE

GLASS.

GEORGE THOMAS BRINGS US THIS

STORY ABOUT ONE SUCH WOMAN

WHO BROKE FREE FROM THE

CYCLE OF ABUSE.

George: IT'S BEEN SAID

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE

ARE THOSE WHO HAVE KNOWN

DEFEAT, KNOWN SUFFERING,

KNOWN STRUGGLE.

AND HAVE FOUND THEIR WAY OUT

OF THE DEPTHS.

RUPA RAJIO IS ONE OF THEM.

I'VE HAD A DIFFICULT LIFE

SINCE MY CHILDHOOD, AND

EXPERIENCED MORE HORRIBLE

THINGS THAN MOST PEOPLE MY

AGE.

George: AT A YOUNG AGE,

RUPA WAS FORCED BY HER

PARENTS TO JOIN THE RANKS OF

INDIA'S

SO-CALLED RAG

PICKERS.

THETHESE ARE MEN, WOMEN,

AND YOUNG CHILDREN WHO

RUMMAGE THROUGH THE GARBAGE

HEAPS IN THE CITIES OF

INDIA, LOOKING FOR ANYTHING

THAT CAN

BE RECYCLED AND

SOLD.

METAL, PLASTIC, PIECES OF

GLASS, ROTTEN AND DISCARDED

FOOD.

MY DAY STARTED AT 4:00 OR

5:00 AND THE MORNING AND I

PICKED TRASH FOR 10 TO 12

HOURS.

George: ON A GOOD DAY,

SHE WOULD EARN ABOUT $2.

HERE ON THE STREETS, WHERE

DOGS WERE HER ONLY

COMPANIONS, AND MILLIONS OF

FLIES, RATS, MAGGOTS AND

CROWS WERE CONSTANT.

WHEN I GOT OLDER, MY

MOTHER TOLD ME I WASN'T

BRINGING IN ENOUGH MONEY

PICKING TRASH, SO I WAS

FORCED TO SLEEP WITH MEN TO

BRING IN MORE MONEY.

I BECAME A PROSTITUTE.

George: WE TEARS

WELLING UP IN HER EYES, SHE

DESCRIBES THE RAGE SHE FELT

TOWARDS HER PARENTS.

I THOUGHT OF RUNNING

AWAY.

I DIDN'T TRUST MY PARENTS.

I WAS ANGRY.

I WANTED TO KILL THEM.

I WANTED SOMETHING TERRIBLE

TO HAPPEN TO THEM.

George: RUPA IS A

DALIT, OR SO-CALLED

UNTOUCHABLE.

INDIAN SOCIETY LABELS THEM

THE LOWEST OF THE LOW,

IMPURE, ALWAYS LESS THAN

HUMAN.

ALMOST ALL GARBAGE PICKERS

ARE DALITS.

AND MOST END UP CAUGHT IN

THE WEB OF HUMAN

TRAFFICKING.

WHEN I THINK ABOUT IT, I

BEGIN TO CRY.

George: BUT THAT THE

THE PAST.

TONIGHT IS GRADUATION DAY.

AND RUPA IS ALL SMILES.

P.

I CANNOT BEGIN TO EXPLAIN

TO YOU WHAT GOD HAS DONE IN

MY LIFE.

George: SHE HAS GOD AND

GINA LEE TO THINK FOR THIS

TRANSFORMATION.

WE REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO

THIS NIGHT BECAUSE WE SEE

OUR WOMEN BEING LIBERATED,

BEING EMANCIPATED.

George: GINA RUNS A

WOMEN'S CENTER, A CHRISTIAN

MINISTRY THAT TAKES IN,

REHABILITATES, AND EMPOWERS

SCORES OF YOUNG WOMEN AT

RISK.

ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO, RUPA

CAME TO THE CENTER LOOKING

FOR HELP.

HERE SHE GOT COUNSELLING,

LEARNED HOW TO SPEAK

ENGLISH, TOOK SEWING AND

COMPUTER CLASSES, AND

EVENTUALLY HAD HER DIGNITY

RESTORED.

SHE ALSO MET DOZENS OF OTHER

WOMEN LIKE HERSELF WITH

SIMILAR EXPERIENCES.

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO

COMMUNICATE TO THEM IS I

WOULD NEVER, EVER GIVE UP ON

ANY ONE OF THOSE WOMEN, NO

MATTER HOW MANY TIMES THEY

FALL BECAUSE I KNOW IT IS A

STRUGGLE FOR THEM.

George: TODAY THE

CENTER IS ONE OF A HANDFUL

OF CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES

OPERATING HERE IN INDIA,

TRYING DESPERATELY TO RESCUE

THOUSANDS OF DALIT WOMEN

FROM HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND

SEXUAL BONDAGE.

FOR MANY

OF THESE VICTIMS,

SUCH MINISTRIES ARE A LIFE

FLIGHT TO A BETTER FUTURE.

RUPA SAYS IT WAS AT THE

CENTER SHE DISCOVERED WITH

GREAT DELIGHT HER WORTH IN

GOD'S EYES.

PEEKS I COME

I COME FROM A HINDU

BACKGROUND.

I KNEW VERY LITTLE ABOUT

JESUS CHRIST.

WHEN I CAME HERE, I STARTED

READING THE BIBLE AND

LEARNED WHAT I MEAN TO GOD.

THEY CAN'T BELIEVE IT

BECAUSE ALL THESE YEARS

THEY'VE BEEN TOLD THAT

THEY'RE LOWER THAN ANIMALS.

AND HERE WE ARE TELLING THEM

THAT THEY ARE CREATED IN THE

IMAGE OF GOD.

AND THAT JUST HITS THEM.

THAT JUST BLOWS THEM AWAY.

George: ON A RECENT

FRIDAY EVENING, RUPA JOINED

105 WOMEN ON STAGE FOR A

GRADUATION CEREMONY HONORING

THEIR COMPLETION OF AN

18-MONTH COURSE AT TARIKA,

AND SITTING IN THE AUDIENCE

THAT NIGHT WERE RUPA'S

MOTHER AND FATHER.

THEY TOLD CBN NEWS THIS WAS

THE PROUDEST MOMENT OF THEIR

LIVES.

THE CENTER HAS DONE A

GREAT JOB.

MY DAUGHTER IS A DIFFERENT

PERSON.

I FEEL BAD FOR THE THINGS

WE DID TO HER.

BUT NOW I WANT HER TO STUDY

WELL AND HAVE A GOOD

FUTURE.

George: AND PERHAPS

IT'S THIS IMAGE OF RUPA,

HOLDING HER FATHER'S HAND,

THAT SPEAKS VOLUMES OF ONE

LIFE TRANSFORMED BY THE

POWER OF THE GOSPEL.

SHE TOLD CBN NEWS LATER SHE

HAS FORGIVEN HER PARENTS FOR

FORCING HER INTO

PROSTITUTION.

EVERY NIGHT BEFORE I GO

TO BED, I THANK GOD FOR THE

CENTER.

I THANK GOD FOR RESCUING ME

FROM MY PAST.

George: THESE DAYS SHE

WORKS AS A CONFIDENT SALES

ASSISTANT IN A LARGE

DEPARTMENT STORE LOCATED ON

THE MOST FAMOUS SHOPPING

STREET IN THIS CITY.

THE SAME STREET, BY THE WAY,

WHERE

SHE ONCE PICKED

TRASH.

HER REAL DESIRE, THOUGH, IS

TO MINISTER TO BROKEN AND

ABUSED WOMEN.

THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO

TOOK CARE OF ME AND SHOWED

LOVE TO ME.

I WANT TO DO THE SAME FOR

OTHERS.

THAT WILL MAKE ME HAPPY.

George: GEORGE THOMAS,

CBN NEWS, BANGALORE, INDIA.

Pat: GEORGE,

MAGNIFICENT PIECE.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, HOW DO

WE CHANGE THE WORLD?

ONE PERSON AT A TIME.

ONE PERSON AT A TIME.

THERE MAY BE SEVEN BILLION,

OR HOWEVER MANY THERE ARE ON

THE FACE OF THE EARTH, ONE

PERSON AT A TIME.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, A

STRIPPER TURNS TO THE OCCULT

FOR ANSWERS AND GETS MUCH

MORE THAN SHE BARGAINED

FOR.

IT WAS VERY, VERY DARK.

AND IT WAS VERY, VERY

SCARY.

BLACK GLOBS GOING ACROSS THE

FLOOR, AND TVs TURNED ON

THAT WEREN'T PLUGGED IN.

THEY WERE SCARING ME AND

THEY WERE SCARING MY

CHILDREN.

Terry: WATCH WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT, AFTER THIS.

Pat: CHERYL BRACKLEY

TURNED TO EXOTIC DANCING TO

SURVIVE.

AT THE AGE OF 18, SHE HAD TO

MAKE A LIVING FOR HERSELF

AND HER DAUGHTER.

BUT YEARS LATER, THAT LIVING

LED HER TO THE BRINK OF

SUICIDE.

I'M STILL THAT LITTLE

GIRL INSIDE.

THERE IS A SAYING THAT

WHATEVER AGE YOU WERE ABUSED

AT, YOU KIND OF EMOTIONALLY

ARE STUNTED AT THAT AGE.

SO I'M PRETTY MUCH ALWAYS

THAT 9-YEAR-OLD OR THAT

13-YEAR-OLD GIRL.

SO I REMEMBER.

Reporter: WHAT CHERYL

BRACKLEY REMEMBERS IS HOPING

SOMEONE WOULD LOVE HER.

AND THE YEARS OF ABUSE BY

HER ADOPTIVE PARENTS.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO BEAT

ME AND MOLEST ME AND DRUG

ME, OR JUST GET RID OF ME,

NEVER TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE

ME, NEVER TELL ME THAT I'M

WORTH ANYTHING, THEN THAT

LITTLE GIRL IS GOING TO GO

INTO HER LIFE, AND SHE'S

GOING TO BE A GROWN WOMAN,

AND SHE'S GOING TO THINK,

THEY DIDN'T LOVE ME.

NOBODY EVER LOVED ME.

NOBODY THOUGHT I WAS

SPECIAL.

NOBODY THOUGHT THAT I WAS

WORTH ANYTHING.

NOBODY WANTED TO RAISE ME,

TO MOLD ME, TO MAKE ME A

BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN.

Reporter: CHERYL BECAME

A SINGLE MOM AT 16.

AND BY 18 SHE WAS A TOPLESS

DANCER WITH A DRUG

ADDICTION.

I KNEW THAT IT WAS ALL

SURVIVAL MODE, ALL OF IT WAS

SURVIVAL.

WHETHER IT WAS THE MAN I

CHOSE, THE WORK I CHOSE -- I

CHOSE THE THINGS THAT I

CHOSE BECAUSE I THOUGHT I

HAD TO IN ORDER TO GET BY,

IN ORDER TO RAISE MY LITTLE

GIRL.

I NEEDED MONEY.

I NEEDED TO GET AN

APARTMENT.

I NEEDED TO GET OUT OF A BAD

SITUATION.

SO I WAS ALWAYS TRYING TO

GET OUT OF THE BAD

SITUATION.

BUT IT WAS BY PICKING

ANOTHER BAD SITUATION.

Reporter: THIS WENT ON

FOR YEARS.

CHERYL MARRIED AND HAD

ANOTHER BABY, BUT HER

HUSBAND WAS UNFAITHFUL, SO

SHE DIVORCED HIM.

DESPERATE FOR ANSWERS, SHE

LOOKED TO THE SPIRIT WORLD,

THROUGH CANDLE-LIGHTING AND

SEANCES, AND OUIJA BOARDS.

I THOUGHT IT WAS GETTING

IN TUNE WITH ANGELIC

CREATURES AND GETTING

ANSWERS, BUT THEN SOMETHING

ELSE CAME INTO THE HOME.

IT WAS VERY, VERY DARK AND

VERY, VERY SCARY.

BLACK GLOBS GOING ACROSS THE

FLOORS, TVs TURNING ON

THAT WEREN'T WORKING AND

WEREN'T PLUGGED IN.

THEY WERE SCARING ME, AND

THEY WERE SCARING MY

CHILDREN.

Reporter: CHERYL

STOPPED THE OCCULT

ACTIVITIES, BUT THE EVIL

REMAINED.

EVEN HER ADDICTION TO

METHAMPHETAMINES DIDN'T NUMB

THE TERROR.

I REMEMBER THE DEEP,

EXTREME, DARK, GUT,

GUT-WRENCHING FEELING OF

BEING SCARED, ALONE, AND

EXHAUSTED, AND JUST CAN'T

TAKE ONE MORE MINUTE.

NOT ONE MORE MINUTE.

I WAS EMPTY.

THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT,

AFTER EVERYONE HAD GONE TO

BED, CHERYL DECIDED TO KILL

HERSELF.

DEATH SEEMED PERFECT.

DEATH SEEMED TRANQUIL.

IT SEEMED PERMANENTLY

WONDERFUL.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, IT

STILL FELT LONELY.

Reporter: SHE PUT THE

RAZOR BLADE ON HER WRIST.

THEN SHE HESITATED.

I SAID, OKAY, IF THERE IS

A GOD, RESCUE ME.

STOP ME.

ALL OF A SUDDEN MY TV TURNS

ON, AND THE GUY GOES, YOU,

OUT THERE -- AND I WENT

WHAT?

AND HE SAID, YEAH, YOU.

NOW RAISE YOUR HAND.

SO I RAISED MY HAND.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I

STARTED SHAKING.

MY WHOLE BODY JUST STARTED

SUPER SHAKING.

I FELT SO HOT IT HURT.

I DROPPED THE RAZOR.

AND THEN THE VOICE NOT FROM

THE TV, BUT FROM I DON'T

KNOW WHERE IT CAME, AND

SAID, NOW YOU WILL WANT FOR

THESE THINGS NO MORE.

I LOVE YOU.

Reporter: THOSE WERE

THE WORDS CHERYL HAD BEEN

WAITING TO HEAR HER ENTIRE

LIFE.

JUST IMAGINE IT.

JUST IMAGINE IT FOR ONE

SECOND.

A NOBODY, SOMEBODY THAT WAS

DISPOSABLE, SHE CALLED ON

GOD AND HE SHOWED UP.

EVERYTHING WONDERFUL I FELT

AT THAT MOMENT.

I FELT THAT THAT LITTLE GIRL

THAT NEEDED TO HEAR THAT

EVERYTHING IS WONDERFUL,

YOU'RE WONDERFUL, THAT YOU

HAVE A PURPOSE -- AT THAT

MOMENT I FELT ALL OF THAT.

YOU WILL WANT FOR THESE

THINGS NO MORE.

AND THEN HE SAID TO FOLLOW

THE MOUNTAIN UNTIL YOU SEE

MY NAME.

AND I'M THINKING, OH, MY

GOD, WHAT'S HIS NAME?

WHAT'S HIS NAME.

Reporter: THAT MORNING

SHE PILED THE FAMILY INTO

THE CAR AND FOLLOWED THE

VOICE.

IT WAS RIGHT UP THE

STREET.

WE WENT RIGHT UP TO THE

MOUNTAIN AND FOLLOWED THE

SIDE OF IT.

AND THERE WAS A HUGE CHURCH

THAT HAD THE NAME JESUS ON

THE TOP OF IT.

AND REMEMBER, WHEN HE SAID

YOU WILL WANT FOR THESE

THINGS NO MORE, I LOVE, AND

NOW FOLLOW THE MOUNTAIN

UNTIL YOU SEE MY NAME.

WHAT?

AND THEN THAT HEAT CAME OVER

ME AGAIN, SO POWERFULLY

STRONG.

I SAID, WE'RE HERE.

IT'S HIM.

HIS NAME IS JESUS.

JESUS IS REAL.

JESUS IS REAL!

Reporter: AT THAT

MOMENT, CHERYL WAS FREE FROM

DRUGS, ALCOHOL, AND THE

OCCULT.

PLUS SHE STOPPED STRIPPING.

EVEN THOUGH SHE HAS WORKED

FOR YEARS THROUGH THE PAIN

OF HER PAST, SHE DOESN'T

QUESTION GOD'S LOVE.

AND AS A SINGLE MOTHER, SHE

MAKES SURE HER DAUGHTERS

FEEL LOVE, TOO.

I KNOW THE REASON.

AND THE REASON IS BECAUSE I

WAS A LITTLE GIRL WHO DIDN'T

HAVE THAT.

Reporter: THAT IS NO

LONGER THE TRUTH.

JESUS CHRIST FOUND CHERYL

DURING HER DARKEST HOUR.

HE WAS REAL.

HE CAME TO ME.

I WAS IMPORTANT TO

SOMEBODY.

I DON'T CARE IF IT'S ONE

PERSON.

IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT

PERSON.

HEY, MY DADDY IS GOD.

IN HEAVEN.

AND HE LOVES ME.

Pat: WOW!

MY DADDY IN HEAVEN IS GOD,

AND HE LOVES ME.

I WANT TO TELL YOU THAT YOU

MAY NOT HAVE BEEN LOVED, YOU

MAY HAVE BEEN MOLESTED, YOU

MAY HAVE BEEN ABUSED, YOU

MAY HAVE BEEN REJECTED, YOU

MAY HAVE BEEN LIED ABOUT,

YOU MAY HAVE BEEN HURT -- I

DON'T KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENED

TO YOU, BUT THERE IS NOTHING

THAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU

THAT HASN'T HAPPENED TO

ALMOST EVERY OTHER HUMAN

BEING.

IT IS JUST A QUESTION OF

DEGREE.

BUT BEYOND THAT, THE VOICE

OF GOD SPEAKS CLEAR.

CHERYL HEARD THAT VOICE.

AND I'LL TELL YOU THE VOICE

TODAY, I LOVE YOU.

I DIED FOR YOU.

I WANT YOU TO BE PART OF MY

FAMILY.

I WANT YOU TO COME HOME TO

ME.

I DIED.

JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU.

AND APART FROM HIM, LIFE CAN

BE HELL.

AND HELL IS WAITING ON THE

OTHER SIDE OF THOSE WHO SAY

NO TO HIM.

THERE IS NO TURNING BACK

ONCE YOU DIE.

SHE WANTED TO DIE.

IF DEATH COMES, IT'S ALL

OVER.

NO, IT'S NOT QUIET SLEEP.

IT IS TORMENT FOREVER AND

EVER AND EVER AND EVER.

AND YOU NEVER CAN HAVE ANY

CESSATION.

WILTHERE IS NO END EVER.

NO END EVER.

TORMENT EVER.

BUT GOD IS OFFERING YOU

SOMETHING SO WONDERFUL NOW.

YOU CAN BE IN PARADISE WITH

HIM.

HE TOLD THE THIEF ON THE

CROSS, THIS DAY YOU WILL BE

WITH ME E IN PARADISE.

THIS DAY YOU CAN BE WITH ME

IN PARADISE.

SO WHAT DO YOU WANT?

DO YOU WANT HELL?

DO YOU WANT SUFFERING AND

TORMENT?

DO YOU WANT SIN?

OR DO YOU WANT JOY AND LOVE

AND PEACE AND PARADISE?

I'M OFFERING PARADISE RIGHT

NOW.

IT'S IN THE PERSON OF JESUS

CHRIST, GOD'S SON.

I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH ME.

IF YOU'LL JUST ASK HIM TO

COME IN, SURRENDER TO HIM

NOW.

NOW.

BOW YOUR HEAD, WHEREVER YOU

ARE, AND PRAY THESE WORDS.

DO IT NOW.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, YOU KNOW MY HEART.

YOU KNOW HOW I'VE BEEN HURT,

HOW I'VE BEEN WOUNDED, HOW

I'VE FELT LONELY, AND HOW I

WANTED TO COMMIT SUICIDE.

YOU'VE KNOWN ALL THESE

THINGS ABOUT ME.

BUT, LORD, RIGHT NOW I COME

TO YOU AND I CONFESS THAT I

AM UNWORTHY OF YOU.

BUT I KNOW YOU DIED FOR ME.

AND I KNOW YOU LOVE ME.

AND RIGHT NOW I SUBMIT TO

YOUR LOVE, AND I GIVE YOU MY

HEART.

AND I ASK YOU, LORD, COME

INTO MY HEART.

COME INTO MY LIFE.

LIVE IN ME.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON I AM

YOURS.

THANK YOU, JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST

THEN, I HAVE A LITTLE PACKET

HERE.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IT HAS A C.D. IN IT.

IT HAS THE SCRIPTURES AND IT

HAS A NICE LITTLE COVER.

AND I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU

FREE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE IT IF

YOU DONT WAN DON'T WANT TO,

BUT I ASK YOU BECAUSE YOU

WANT TO GROW IN THE LORD.

RIGHT NOW I WANT YOU TO

THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS

DONE.

THANK HIM.

IF YOU WANT TO GET FURTHER

ESTABLISHED IN THE LORD, GET

THIS AND LISTEN TO IT.

THERE IS NO FINANCIAL

OBLIGATION WHATSOEVER.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE US

YOUR NAME, THAT'S FINE.

BUT TELL ONE OF THESE

COUNSELLORS I PRAYED WITH

PAT AND I GAVE MY LIFE TO

THE LORD.

THIS IS THE NEXT STEP

BECAUSE GOD IS GOING TO SHOW

YOU AN ADVENTURE BEYOND

ANYTHING YOU COULD ASK OR

THINK.

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

1-800-759-0700.

HERE'S TERRY.

Terry: UP NEXT, WE'RE

GOING TO "BRING IT ON" WITH

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PAM SAYS, "MY FRIEND IS

TRYING TO OPEN A SMALL

BUSINESS AND HAS ASKED FOR

MY HELP.

SHE IS A PSYCHIC AND DOES

READINGS AND CLEANSINGS FOR

HER CLIENTS.

WOULD I BE WRONG FOR GETTING

INVOLVED?"

PAT WILL ANSWER THAT AND

MORE COMING UP.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK TO

IS "THE 700 CLUB."

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS SIGNING

AN EXECUTIVE ORDER TO EXPAND

GAY RIGHTS FOR PEOPLE WHO

WORK WITH THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT.

THE ORDER FORBIDS COMPANIES

THAT DO BUSINESS WITH THE

GOVERNMENT FROM

DISCRIMINATING AGAINST

WORKERS BASED ON THE BASIS

OF THEIR SEXUAL ORIENTATION

OR GENDER IDENTITY.

BUT THERE MAY NOT BE ANY

PROTECTIONS FOR RELIGIOUS

ORGANIZATIONS.

RELIGIOUS LEADERS WARN IF

THERE IS NO EXEMPTION, SOME

CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH

CHARITIES MAY BE FORCED TO

VIOLATE THEIR FAITH OR

WITHDRAW FROM FEDERAL

CONTRACTS.

IN ALASKA, THERE ARE FREE

PREGNANCY TESTS THAT WILL BE

AVAILABL

E

IN 20 SUCH

ESTABLISHMENTS AS

IT IS PART OF A NEW CAMPAIGN

OF FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME IN

THE COUNTRY.

THE $400,000 STATE PROGRAM

AND YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT CBN

CB CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: TIME TO "BRING

IT ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

PAM.

WHO SAYS, "MY FRIEND IS

TRYING TO OPEN A SMALL

BUSINESS AND HAS ASKED FOR

MY HELP.

SHE IS A PSYCHIC AND DOES

READINGS AND CLEANSINGS FOR

HER CLIENTS.

WOULD I BE WRONG FOR GETTING

INVOLVED?"

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH

SPIRITS THAT PEEP AND

MUTTER.

YOU NEED TO TURN TO THE

LIVING GOD.

THIS PSYCHIC STUFF IS -- I

DON'T DENY THE EXISTENCE OF

PSYCHIC ACTIVITY.

BUT THE WORD COMES FROM THE

GREEK WORD "SUSUKI," WHICH

MEANS SOUL.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GET

INVOLVED WITH A PSYCHIC,

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Terry: WESLEY SAYS,

"I'M A 73-YEAR-OLD MAN AND

AN ALCOHOLIC, AND I ALSO

SMOKE.

BEING A CHRISTIAN, I KNOW

THIS IS WRONG.

I PRAYED ABOUT THIS FOR A

LONG TIME, ASKING GOD TO

FORGIVE ME.

I ACCEPTED JESUS INTO MY

LIFE YEARS AGO AND PRAY

EVERY DAY.

MY QUESTION TO YOU IS THIS:

WILL I BE KEPT FROM GOING TO

HEAVEN BECAUSE OF MY

DRINKING AND SMOKING?

I DON'T WANT TO QUIT AND

HAVE TRIED TO QUIT MANY

TIMES.

I QUIT DRINKING FROM TIME TO

TIME, BUT WHEN I GET

STRESSED OR LONELY, I START

AGAIN.

I'M SINGLE AND LONELY."

Pat: WILL IT KEEP YOU

OUT OF HEAVEN, I DON'T THINK

SO.

WHAT GETS YOU INTO HEAVEN IS

YOUR FAITH, NOT WHETHER YOU

SMOKE OR DRINK.

WHAT IS SO HELPFUL ABOUT

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS IS THEY

PAIR PEOPLE UP.

YOU NEED SOME HELP.

YOU'RE O OUT THERE ALL BY

YOURSELF.

AND SUDDENLY YOU FEEL

LONELY, AND THAT BOTTLE IS

SITTING CLOSE BY, OR THERE

IS A BAR DOWN THE STREET, SO

WHY NOT GO DOWN AND THROW

DOWN A COUPLE OF QUICKIES

AND IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL

BETTER.

YOU DON'T WANT THAT.

MAYBE YOU OUGHT TO GO TO

A.A. AND GET TIED IN WITH

SOMEBODY WHO'S HAD THE EXACT

SAME EXPERIENCE, WHO WILL

TAKE YOU AS A FRIEND.

THAT'S WHAT YOU NEED.

AT 73, YOU NEED A FRIEND.

YOU'RE LONELY AND YOUR

ESCAPE IS IN THESE TWO

HABITS.

ARE THEY GOING TO KEEP YOU

OUT OF HEAVEN?

I DON'T THINK SO.

Terry: JULIE SAYS, "I'M

CURRENTLY LIVING AND WORKING

IN THAILAND.

THE WAY IS A COMMON GESTURE

HERE, BUT IT IS BASED IN

BUDDHISM.

AS A CHRISTIAN, SHOULD I DO

THIS FORM OF BOWING?

IT WOULD BE CONSIDERED RUDE

IF I DON'T DO IT."

Pat: I DON'T THINK IT

WOULD BE A PROBLEM IF IT

DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING TO

YOU.

TAKE THE BUDDHISM OUT OF IT,

AND THAT SAYS WE'RE

FRIENDS.

I SEE NOTHING WRONG WITH

THAT.

UNLESS YOU DECIDE THAT'S

GOING TO MEAN YOU'RE PART OF

SOME BUDDHIST TRADITION, AND

YOU DON'T MEAN THAT.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: JOAN SAYS, "MY

BOYFRIEND AND I ARE

EXPECTING A BABY IN FIVE

MONTHS.

I'M NOT CONCERNED ABOUT

BEING MARRIED LEGALLY BUT AM

CONCERNED ABOUT THE BABY

BEING BORN OUT OF WEDLOCK.

ARE WE ABLE TO MARRY IN A

CHURCH WITHOUT MAKING IT

LEGAL?

I WANT TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT

IN THE EYES OF THE LORD."

Pat: YOU ARE ONE CRAZY,

MIXED UP KID.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT.

I REALLY DON'T.

Terry: WHY WOULD YOU

WANT IT TO BE LEGAL WITH GOD

BUT NOT LEGAL --

Pat: YOU DON'T WANT THE

BABY TO BE BORN OUT OF

WEDLOCK.

IT WILL BE BORN OUT OF

WEDLOCK UNLESS YOU GET

MARRIED.

AND YOU CAN GO DOWN TO THE

COUNTY CLERK AND GET A

MARRIAGE LICENSE IF YOU WANT

TO.

YOU WANT TO GET MARRIED IN A

CHURCH?

OF COURSE YOU DO.

WHY NOT GET MARRIED?

WHAT'S --

Terry: REALLY,

EVERYTHING IS FOR THAT

BABY.

Pat: WHAT YOU'RE SAYING

IS I'M NOT REALLY COMMITTED

TO THIS GUY, AND I MAY GET

OUT OF THE MARRIAGE AND I

DON'T WANT TO BE INVOLVED.

WELL, YOU'VE BEEN INVOLVED

ENOUGH TO HAVE A BABY.

YOU'VE GOT TO BUILD A HOME

FOR THAT CHILD NOW.

AND THE WAY TO DO IT IS TO

GIVE IT A SOLID STRUCTURE.

SO, OF COURSE YOU GET

MARRIED.

Terry: THIS IS JUDY WHO

SAYS, "TO MY SURPRISE, MY

SISTER HAS BEEN ACCEPTING

KEEPSAKES EARMARKED FOR BOTH

OF US WHEN MY MOTHER

PASSES.

MOM, WHO IS 91 YEARS OLD,

HAS A DETAILED WILL, AND MY

BROTHER IS THE EXETOR.

AM I TO LOOK THE OTHER WAY

AND SIMPLY CHERISH

KEEPSAKES, OR IS WHAT

HAPPENING UNETHICAL AND

INJUREIOUS TO FAMILY BONDS.

I AM PRAYING, AND I COME UP

WITH THIS, LET IT GO.

PLEASE ADVICE.

IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT

MATERIAL POSSESSIONS BUT

ABOUT LACK OF

CONSIDERATION."

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

SUFFER YOURSELVES TO BE

DEFRAUDED.

I THINK RATHER THAN MAKE A

BIG DEAL ABOUT SOMETHING --

SO THERE IS A BROACH YOUR

MOTHER LIKED AND SO YOUR

SISTER TOOK IT.

IT IS TIME TO TALK TO YOUR

SISTER AND SAY, LISTEN, THIS

ISN'T RIGHT.

THERE COMES A TIME WHEN YOU

ARE GOING TO DIVIDE -- I

DON'T KNOW HOW BIG THE

ESTATE IS, BUT SAY IT IS A

FEW HUNDRED THOUSAND

DOLLARS.

PART OF THAT IS YOUR MONEY.

AND YOU DON'T WANT THEM

TAKING IT FROM YOU BECAUSE

THAT WILL EAT INSIDE OF YOU

FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

SO YOU NEED TO TALK TO YOUR

BROTHER AND TALK TO YOUR

SISTER AND SAY, LISTEN, I'M

GOING TO ASK FOR A

LEGITIMATE DIVISION OF THE

FAMILY PROPERTY WHEN THE

TIME COMES.

I DON'T THINK I'M WILLING TO

FORGIVE ALL OF THIS STUFF,

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, FOR

YOU GOOD AND MY GOOD, WE'VE

GOT TO SETTLE IT RIGHT.

YOU MAY HAVE TO GO TO COURT

TO GET THE THING

ADJUDICATED.

IF THEY STEAL YOUR

INHERITANCE, YOU'RE

DEPRIVING YOUR CHILDREN WHAT

YOUR MOTHER WANTS.

Terry: YOU HAVE TO BE

PREPARED TO DO THAT WITHOUT

BITTERNESS, OR YOU HAVE TO

BE PREPARED TO DO WHAT SHE

SAID, WHICH IS LET IT GO.

Pat: IF IT IS JUST A

FEW DOO-DADS, THAT'S

SOMETHING ELSE.

BUT IF IT COMES TO A

SIGNIFICANT INHERITANCE, YOU

NEED TO HAVE THAT DIVIDED

APPROPRIATELY BECAUSE YOU

WOULD BE CHEATING YOUR

PARENTS IF YOU DIDN'T.

Terry: YOUR MOTHER

WOULD WANT THAT.

Pat: FOR 20 YEARS,

CINDY LIVED IN A FUZZY WORLD

OF NEAR DARKNESS CAUSED BY

JUVENILE CATARACTS.

SO THE DAY SHE FIRST SAW HER

MOTHER'S FACE WAS ONE OF THE

BEST DAYS OF HER LIFE.

LOOK AT THIS.

Reporter: EVER SINCE HE

WAS A CHILD, CINDY HAS

ENJOYED WALKING ON THE BEACH

WITH HER BROTHER.

SHE LOVES THE SOUNDS OF THE

WATER AND BIRDS BECAUSE

SHE'S NEVER REALLY CLEARLY

SEEN THEM.

SHE WAS BORN WITH JUVENILE

CATARACTS.

I COULD NOT DISTINGUISH

OBJECTS OR MY FAMILY.

I HAVE BROKEN SO MANY OF

MOM'S DISHES.

I WOULD TRY TO GRAB THEM AND

THEY WOULD SLIP FROM MY

HANDS.

I JUST COULDN'T SEE WHAT I

WAS DOING.

Reporter: CINDY WAS

DEVASTATED WHEN SHE

EVENTUALLY HAD TO DROP OUT

OF SCHOOL.

I DECIDED TO KILL

MYSELF.

BUT I DIDN'T DO IT.

Reporter: THEN CINDY

HEARD THAT CBN AND

"OPERATION BLESSING" WERE

COMING TO A NEARBY TOWN WITH

A FREE MOBILE EYE CLINIC.

IT WAS SUCH A GREAT DAY

FOR ME.

Reporter: AFTER THE

SURGERY, THE DOCTOR REMOVED

THE BANDAGES.

CINDY WAS OVERWHELMED WITH

EMOTION AS SHE SAW HER

MOTHER'S FACE CLEARLY FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN HER LIFE.

MY DREAM WAS TO SEE

THINGS THE WAY THEY REALLY

ARE.

I SEE MY FAMILY.

IT WAS SO WONDERFUL.

Reporter: IN THE SEVEN

MONTHS SINCE HER SURGERY,

CINDY'S LIFE HAS CHANGED.

SHE HAS GOTTEN A JOB AND IS

NOW SAVING MONEY TO GO TO

COLLEGE.

I AM A NEW PERSON NOW.

I THANK GOD FOR THE

OPPORTUNITY OF HAVING THESE

AWESOME SURGERY.

THANKS "OPERATION BLESSING"

AND CBN.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Pat: LOOK AT THAT

SMILE.

LOOK AT THAT HAPPY PERSON.

YOU CAN CHANGE A LIFE.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE?

65 CENTS A DAY.

AND IF ALL OF US WORK

TOGETHER, TREMENDOUS GOOD

CAN CAME ABOUT.

AND WE'RE REACHING OUT TO

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.

YOU'LL NEVER GET A BETTER

BARGAIN THAN WHAT WE DO WITH

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND CBN

INTERNATIONAL AND ALL OF THE

REST OF THE THINGS.

WE BELIEVE IN HELPING

PEOPLE.

EVEN IF IT IS JUST ONE

PERSON AT A TIME.

BUT IT IS ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

THERE ARE PEOPLE IN

DARKNESS.

SOMEBODY CAN'T SEE AND

SUDDENLY THEY CAN SEE.

AND WHAT DOES IT COST?

IT USED TO BE $90 FOR AN

INNER OCULAR LENS.

CATARACT SURGERY ISN'T ALL

THAT EXPENSIVE.

YOU CAN GIVE SIGHT TO

SOMEBODY.

PRAISE GOD FOR THE REST OF

THEIR LIVES BECAUSE THEY CAN

SEE.

THOSE WHO PARTICIPATE, I'VE

GOT SOMETHING FOR YOU CALLED

"LIVING UNDER GOD'S

BLESSING."

I DON'T HAVE ANY FEEDBACK

FROM THIS, BUT I'M SURE

EVERYBODY WHO HAS LISTENED

TO IT HAS LIKED IT.

Terry: EVERYBODY WHO

HAS RESPONDED SAYS IT IS

AMAZING.

Pat: IT IS MY ADDRESS

AT THE CONFERENCE AT THE

FEAST OF TABERNACLES, AND

GORDON'S TEACHINGS.

PLEASE CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

SAY YOU CAN COUNT ON US.

LET'S HELP OTHERS.

OKAY?

Terry: UP NEXT, WE'RE

GOING TO BE PRAYING FOR IN

YOUR NEEDS.

PLUS, WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW A

WOMAN WAS HEALED OF WHIPLASH

AFTER HER DOCTOR GAVE UP ON

HER.

STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: ELIZABETH STONE

WAS DESTINED TO A LIFE OF

PAIN, AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT

HER DOCTOR INDICATED.

HE GAVE HER ALMOST NO HOPE

HER INJURY COULD EVER BE

CURED, BUT THE DOCTOR WAS

WRONG.

TAKE A LOOK.

I COULDN'T RAISE MY HANDS

ABOVE MY HEAD AND DO A WHOLE

LOT OF THINGS ABOVE MY

HEAD.

I COULDN'T DO THINGS DOWN

LOW.

IT MADE IT HARD TO SLEEP.

IT MADE IT HARD TO -- IT

JUST MADE IT HARD TO

FUNCTION.

Reporter: ELIZABETH

STONE WAS ALWAYS IN PAIN.

SHE HAD BEEN INJURED WHEN A

FAMILY MEMBER HIT HER DURING

AN ARGUMENT.

IT FLUNG ME CRITERIA

ACROSS.

ROOM.

I HIT THE DOOR, AND I DON'T

REMEMBER ANYTHING FOR A

WHILE.

WHEN I WOKE UP THE NEXT

MORNING, MY NECK WAS JUST

STIFF.

I COULDN'T TURN MY NECK.

EVERYTHING WAS JUST BRUISED

AND STIFF.

Reporter: BEFORE LONG,

ELIZABETH'S PAIN GOT WORSE.

SHE STARTED EXPERIENCING

NUMBNESS THROUGHOUT HER

BODY.

SO SHE WENT TO A PHYSICAL

THERAPIST WHERE SHE LEARNED

THE SEVERITY OF HER

INJURIES.

HE SAID WHAT HAPPENED WAS

BASICALLY WHIPLASH.

Reporter: AND HE SAID

THAT HER NECK, SHOULDERS AND

BACK MAY NEVER GET BETTER.

AND ALL HE COULD GIVE WAS

GIVE HER PAINKILLERS.

BY NOW, IL BENY ELIZABETH

WAS MARRIED AND SHE WAS

FRUSTRATED BECAUSE SHE

COULDN'T TAKE CARE OF HER

FAMILY.

BUT ONE DAY THINGS CHANGED

WHEN SHE STARTED WATCHING

PAT ROBERTSON.

Pat: THERE IS A PINCHED

NERVE AND RIGHT NOW GOD IS

TOUCHING YOU, IF YOU WANT TO

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR NECK.

I DID.

AND I HAD A TINGLING THAT

WENT UP MY NECK AND DOWN MY

BACK.

I COULD FEEL PRESSURE

RELIEVING.

I USED TO HAVE A GREAT BIG

KNOT BETWEEN MY SHOULDERS

AND MY NECK, AND THAT KNOT

IS GONE, AND I HAVEN'T HAD

THE PAIN NEXT.

Reporter: AND NOW SHE

CAN WORK AROUND THE HOUSE

WITH HER HUSBAND AND HER

SON.

I CAN GET OUT THERE AND

RAKE, GET OUT AT THE END OF

THAT SHOVEL AND WORK IN MY

FLOWER BED.

Reporter: ELIZABETH

SAYS SHE KNOWS GOD DID THAT

FOR HER.

A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY, GOD

WON'T DO IT FOR ME BECAUSE

I'VE DONE THIS, THIS, AND

THIS.

GOD DOESN'T PLAY FAVORITES.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK

GOD.

GOD IS ALWAYS THERE.

Terry: GOD IS ALWAYS

THERE, AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO

IS ASK.

THAT'S WHAT WE WANT TO DO

RIGHT THERE.

Pat: I WANT TO SHARE

THIS.

THIS WOMAN HAD A BRAIN

TUMOR, AND SHE HAD AN

OPERATION AND PHYSICAL

THERAPY WASN'T HELPING.

JUNE 2nd HER HUSBAND WAS

WATCHING, AND TERRY SAID,

PEOPLE WITH EYE PROBLEMS,

YOUR VISION IS BEING

HEALED.

JUANITA SAID, THAT'S ME.

AND THE NEXT MORNING HER

VISION CLEARED UP.

Terry: IN 1990, TERRY,

WHO LIVES IN CALIFORNIA, HAD

PROBLEMS WITH PAIN AND

UTERINE BLEEDING.

THE CONDITION PERSISTED.

AT ONE POINT THE DOCTOR

RECOMMENDED SHE UNDERGO A

HYSTERECTOMY.

BUT SHE CHOSE TO TAKE PAIN

MEDICINE.

HER PROBLEM PERSISTED FOR 20

YEARS.

AND ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THE PROGRAM, AND SHE HEARD

YOU SAY, PAT, THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH EXCESSIVE

BLEEDING.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

BLEEDING.

SHE FELT A TINGLE FROM HER

LEGS TO HER STOMACH, AND SHE

HAS HAD NO MORE PAIN AFTER

20 YEARS.

Pat: GOD IS ABLE.

SHE CREATED EVERYTHING.

I CAN'T EVEN BEGIN TO

EXPLORE THE MAGESTY OF GOD.

THIS GOD IS SO GREAT.

AND WE HAVE OUR LITTLE

PROBLEMS HERE, AND WE FIGHT

OVER THESE LITTLE THINGS AND

WE WORRY ABOUT THIS LITTLE

STUFF INSTEAD OF BRINGING IT

TO THE LORD AND SAYING, GOD,

WE TRUST YOU.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN TOGETHER.

RIGHT THIS MOMENT WE'RE

JOINING HANDS TOGETHER FOR

YOU.

AND I ASK THAT YOU PRAY WITH

US RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, WE KNOWLEDGE THAT

YOU ARE GREATER THAN THE

UNIVERSE.

YOU'RE GREATER THAN OUR

PAIN.

YOU'RE GREATER THAN OUR

SUFFERING.

YOU'RE GREATER THAN THE

DEVIL.

YOU'RE GREATER THAN THE HOST

OF DEMONS.

YOU'RE GREATER THAN

EVERYTHING.

AND WITH YOU, LORD, ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

NOW, LORD, RIGHT NOW TOUCH

PEOPLE.

SOMEBODY HAS GOT A FIBROID

TUMOR, AN INTERUTERINE

TUMOR.

AND RIGHT NOW THAT TUMOR IS

DISSOLVING.

YOU'LL FEEL LIKE A FIRE

BURNING AND THAT THING IS

GONE.

YOU CAN PRAISE GOD.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH A

BRAIN TUMOR THAT IS

INOPERABLE.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

Pat: THERE IS AN

IMPACTED WISDOM TOOTH OR A

MOLLER THAT IS SOMEHOW

INFECTED.

YOUR JAW IS IN TERRIBLE

PAIN.

TOUCH YOUR JAW IN THE NAME

OF JESUS AND YOU'RE MADE

WHOLE.

LORD, FOR EVERYONE IN THIS

AUDIENCE, LET THE ANOINTING

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BE UPON

THEM.

MEET THEIR NEEDS, LORD.

GIVE THEM THE ANSWER TO

THEIR PRAYER.

AND MAY YOUR NAME BE

EXALTED, IN JESUS' NAME WE

ASK IT.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, GIVE GOD

THE PRAISE.

WE LEAVE YOU TODAY WITH

THESE WORDS FROM PAUL'S

LETTER TO THE GALATIANS:

"LET US NOT BECOME WEARY IN

DOING GOOD, FOR AT THE

PROPER TIME WE WILL REAP A

HARVEST IF WE DO NOT GIVE

UP."

FOR TERRY AND ALL OF US,

WE'RE SO GLAD THAT YOU COULD

BE WITH US.

WE'LL BE BACK TOMORROW.

REMEMBER, YOU ASKED WHATEVER

HAPPENED TO ONE OF THE

"AMERICAN IDOL"'S, WELL, HIS

AMAZING STORY ON TOMORROW'S

"700 CLUB."

UNTIL THEN, FROM ALL OF US,

WE'LL SEE YOU THEN.

GOD BLESS YOU.
