The 700 Club - June 25, 2014

The storied baseball career of Albert Pujols falls secondary to his legacy of serving others. Plus, after falling out of a minivan traveling at 70 mph, Kenny was given little hope of survival. Read Transcript


HE'S ONE OF THE GREATEST

BASEBALL PLAYERS OF OUR ERA,

BUT HIS GREATEST WORK IS

DONE OFF THE DIAMOND.

WE WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

WE'LL TALK WITH THE ANGEL

IN THE INFIELD, AG BERT.

ALBERT.

AND THEN A 13-YEAR-OLD WHO

WAS THROWN OUT OF A CAR.

I SAW KENNY CATAPULTED

OUT OF THE VEHICLE.

THERE WAS A POOL OF BLOOD

HE WAS LAYING IN.

AND LIVES TO TELL THE

TALE ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

THIS IS BIGGER THAN WE

CAN HANDLE.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME.

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

WITH US ON THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

YOU'VE PROBABLY SCENE

ADVERTISED SCARY MOVIE

NUMBER ONE AND TWO, AND THIS

IS SCARY MOVIE NUMBER

THREE.

BITTER VIOLENCE IN THE

MIDDLE EAST COULD MEAN

BOMBING HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES.

TERRORISTS ARE WORKING ON

NEW BOMBS THAT THEY SAY

COULD BE HARD TO DETECT AND

ARE CAPABLE OF BLOWING UP

THE JETLINER YOU MAY BE

FLYING ON.

Wendy: THE LATEST

CONCERNS COME AS ISLAMIC

TERRORISTS ARE PERSECUTING

CHRISTIANS IN IRAQ.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: IRAQI MEN

CONTINUE TO VOLUNTEER TO

DEFEND BAGHDAD.

AS CLOSE TO 10,000

TERRORISTS TRUMP THE ISLAMIC

STATE OF SYRIA, ISSIS.

WITH U.S. ADVISORS ON THE

GROUND IN IRAQ, THERE IS NEW

INFORMATION THAT TERRORISTS

FROM IRAQ AND SYRIA PRESENT

A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER

TO THE UNITED STATES

HOMELAND.

THERE WAS NO DOUBT IN

ANYBODY'S MIND WHO BRIEFED

US THAT EVENTUALLY THE

PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO

CONQUER IRAQ, AND MAKE IT AN

ISLAMIC CALIPHATE, AND KILL

EVERY CHRISTIAN IN THE

MIDEAST, THEY WILL HIT US AT

HOME.

Reporter: OFFICIALS ARE

CONCERNED THAT THE FIGHTING

IN SYRIA AND IRAQ IS A

TERRORIST TRAINING GROUND,

AND IT'S BREEDING

COOPERATION BETWEEN GROUPS

WHO WANT TO HIT THE UNITED

STATES.

RECENT INTELLIGENCE SHOWS

THE TWO al-QAEDA

AFFILIATED GROUPS, ONE IN

SYRIA AND ONE IN YE YEMEN

ARE WORKING TO DEVELOP NEW

BOMBS THAT ARE DIFFICULT TO

DETECT AND EASY TO SMUGGLE

ON TO COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT.

THIS

RELATIONSHIP-BUILDING THAT

YOU SEE AROUND THE WORLD

THAT'S WHY THOSE OF US WHO

DO THIS FOR A LIVING ARE SO

SCARED FOR THE UNITED

STATES.

Reporter: THE SUNNI

WANT TO FIGHT AGAINST ISIS,

BUT THAT MAY BE A TOUGH

SALE.

BUT SUNNIS HAVE BEEN

ALIENATED BY NURI AL-MALIKI,

WHO HAS NOW LOST MUCH OF

IRAQ TO SUNNI INSURGENTS,

AND IS NOW TRYING TO SIMPLY

DEFEND BAGHDAD.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, DALE.

IT IS OBVIOUS MALIKI SHOULD

GO.

HE SHOULD GO.

HE IS DISLIKED BY EVERYONE.

BUT APPARENTLY THE PEOPLE

AND THE POLLS SAY THEY WANT

TO KEEP HIM ON AS PRIME

MINISTER, BUT HE IS A

DISASTER.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE MORE ON

THE ISLAMIC PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE

EAST IN A FEW MOMENTS.

BUT NOW OTHER NEWS.

THERE IS GOOD NEWS FOR THAT

MOTHER WHO WAS ARRESTED IN

SUDAN.

WHAT WAS SHE DOING?

SHE HAD MARRIED A

NON-MUSLIM, AND HA THEY

REVERSED THE DECISION, AND

SHE TRIED TO LEAVE THE

COUNTRY AND SHE WAS

RE-ARRESTED, BUT NOW SHE HAS

BEEN SET FREE AGAIN.

Reporter: THE SUDANESE

MOTHER CONDEMNED TO DIE FOR

REFUSING TO DENOUNCE HER

CHRISTIAN FAITH HAS BEEN

RELEASED FROM CUSTODY

AGAIN.

MERIAM IBRAHIM AND HER TWO

BABIES WERE HELD CAP TEF

CAPTIVE BY SUDAN'S ISLAMIC

GOVERNMENT FOR OVER A

MONTH.

FINALLY ON MONDAY, HER DEATH

SENTENCE WAS OVERTURNED AND

SHE WAS RELEASED.

BUT AS SHE AND HER AMERICAN

HUSBAND TRIED TO LEAVE

TUESDAY, THEY HAD BEEN

DETAINED.

Reporter: SHE WAS

CEASED AT THE AIRPORT BY THE

NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE AND

SECURITY SERVICES OF SUDAN,

WHO DO NOT ANSWER TO

CRIMINAL COURTS.

THEY ARE OUTSIDE THE

JUDICIAL SYSTEM.

WE'VE BEEN THROUGH THIS

TOO MANY TIMES IN THESE

CASES OF PERSECUTION, IN

COUNTRIES THAT ARE SIMILAR

TO SUDAN, WHEN PEOPLE ARE

RELEASED, BUT THAT'S NOT THE

END OF THE STORY.

THEY'RE NOT SAFE YET.

Reporter: A U.S. STATE

DEPARTMENT SPOKESWOMAN SAYS

THE SUDAN GOVERNMENT INSISTS

THEY ARE RELEASED AGAIN.

THE ECONOMY TOOK A SHARP

PLUNGE IN THE FIRST

QUARTER.

NEW FIGURES FROM THE

GOVERNMENT SAY THE ECONOMY

SHRANK AT AN ANNUAL RATE OF

2.9%, THE WORST SHOWING

SINCE THE RECESSION.

MANY ANALYSTS HAVE BLAMED

THE WEAK ECONOMY DURING THE

WINTER ON THE BRUTAL

WEATHER, AND THEY EXPECT IT

TO REBOUND STRONGLY AS THE

YEAR GOES ON.

A MAJOR VICTORY FOR A

MAINSTREAM REPUBLICAN OVER A

TEA PARTY CHALLENGER IN A

CLOSELY WATCHED PRIMARY IN

MISSISSIPPI.

TEA PARTY AND OTHER

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS SPENT

MILLIONS TO UNFEET

COCHRANE.

HE WON BY REACHING OUT TO

TRADITIONALLY DEMOCRATIC

VOTERS IN THE FINAL DAYS OF

THE RACE.

IT HAS BEEN A REAL

PLEASURE WORKING PERSONALLY

WITH SO MANY OF YOU, MAKING

APPEARANCES IN TOWNS ALL

ACROSS MISSISSIPPI.

BUT THERE IS SOMETHING A BIT

STRANGE.

THERE IS SOMETHING A BIT

UNUSUAL ABOUT A REPUBLICAN

PRIMARY THAT IS DECIDED BY

LIBERAL DEMOCRATS.

Reporter: McDANIEL

WON THE FIRST PRIMARY ROUND

THREE WEEKS AGO, BUT HE FELL

SHORT OF THE MAJORITY NEEDED

TO WIN THE NOMINATION, AND

THAT LED TO YESTERDAY'S

RUNOFF RACE.

A HUGE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS

DON'T BELIEVE THE I.R.S.

ACCIDENTALLY LOST THOUSANDS

OF E-MAILS THAT WERE TIED

INTO THE INVESTIGATION OF

THE TARGETING SCANDAL

INVOLVING TEA PARTY AND

OTHER CONSERVATIVE GROUPS.

ACCORDING TO A NEW POLL FROM

FOX NEWS, 76% BELIEVE THE

E-MAILS WERE DELIBERATELY

DESTROYED.

ONLY 12% BELIEVE THE E-MAILS

WERE DESTROYED

ACCIDENTALLY.

AND 74% SAY THE LAWMAKERS

SHOULD

INVESTIGATE, QUOTE,"UNTIL

SOMEONE IS HELD

ACCOUNTABLE."

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: CHARLENE, I WAS

TALKING TO A LADY YESTERDAY

WHO WILL NOT IDENTIFY, WHO

SAID A YEAR OR TWO AGO SHEP

SHE AND HER HUSBAND FILED AN

INCOME TAX, AND FOUND THEY

WERE OWED MONEY BY THE

GOVERNMENT.

THEY HAD OVERPAID.

BUT THEY FAILED TO CHECK THE

RIGHT BOX.

THEY PUT INFORMATION ON ONE

LINE ABOVE OR BELOW THE ONE

THAT THE FORM CALLED FOR.

THAT TRIGGERED AN I.R.S.

AUDIT.

THE I.R.S. THEN SEPT HER

SENT HER A LETTER -- SHE AND

HER HUSBAND -- SAYING WE'RE

GOING TO CONFISCATE YOUR

PROPERTY.

WE'RE GOING TO FORECLOSE ON

ALL OF YOUR ASSETS.

WE'RE GOING TO CLOSE YOU

DOWN.

SHE WENT TO A TAX PREPARER,

AN EXPERT, WHO, IN TURN,

FILED AN AMENDED TAX

RETURN.

AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW,

THEY GOT A REFUND.

ONE LINE ON ONE FORM.

IN ERROR, AND IT CAUSED THE

I.R.S. TO FREAK OUT AND TO

ARREST THAT WOMAN AND HER

HUSBAND AND BASICALLY SCARE

THEM TO DEATH THAT THEY WERE

GOING TO PUT INTO

BANKRUPTCY.

NOW THAT'S WHAT THAT GROUP

DOES.

AND THEY'RE ASKING FOR MERCY

FROM THE REST OF US ON A

LOSS OF THOUSANDS OF

E-MAILS, TWO YEARS OF

DOCUMENTS.

IT STRETCHES CREDIBILITY, TO

THINK WE'RE GOING TO EXCUSE

THEM FOR THAT.

IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE

DEMANDING THAT CONGRESS

FORCE THE I.R.S. TO COME

CLEAN ON THIS.

AND IT JUST SEEMS LIKE WE

CAN'T TRUST HOLDER TO DO

IT.

AND WE CAN'T TRUST THE

TREASURY DEPARTMENT TO DO

IT.

WE NEED TO HAVE AN

INDEPENDENT PROSECUTOR, AN

INDEPENDENT COUNSEL, TO GET

INTO THE HEART OF THIS

THING.

GIVE HIM SUBPOENA POWERS AND

LET THEM GO AFTER THE

I.R.S., JUST LIKE THEY GO

AFTER THE REST OF US.

HEY, THERE IS GOOD NEWS.

THEY SAY IF YOU DO A PROGRAM

LIKE THIS EVERY MORNING,

THAT YOU WON'T GET

ALZHEIMER'S.

CHARLENE?

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

EXERCISING YOUR BRAIN CAN BE

JUST AS HELPFUL AS

EXERCISING YOUR BODY.

A NEW STUDY SAYS IF YOU KEEP

LEARNING AND KEEP YOUR BRAIN

ACTIVE, IT COULD DELAY THE

ONSET OF DEMENTIA WHEN YOU

GET OLDER BY UP TO NINE

YEARS.

THE STUDY WAS PUBLISHED IN

THE JOURNAL OF MEDICAL

ASSOCIATION NEUROLOGY, AND

IT FOUND THAT ACTIVITIES

LIKE READING, EDUCATION,

MENTALLY STIMULATING WORK,

SOCIALIZING WITH OTHER, AND

USING YOUR COMPUTER AND SO

ON, COULD HELP KEEP YOUR

MIND CLEAR AND HEALTHY INTO

OLDER AGE.

PAT, I KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN

KEEPING YOUR BRAIN ACTIVE

ALL YOUR LIFE.

Pat: WELL, WE'VE GOT TO

DO IT.

WE READ AND WE THINK AND WE

COMMENT.

AND I'M HERE WITH THIS

LOVELY LADY, AND THAT

INSPIRES ME.

Wendy: YOU ARE A

VORACIOUS READER.

YOU CAN READ A BOOK IN THE

MORNING BEFORE YOU COME TO

WORK.

I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU DO

THAT?

Pat: I DON'T KNOW WHAT

IT IS.

I LOVE THOSE eBOOKS.

AND YOU CAN READ THEM SO

FAST.

THEY'RE ABOUT 300, 400

PAGES, AND THEY'RE

FINISHED.

I LOVE TO READ.

PROBABLY IF I HAD MY

FAVORITE PASTTIME, IT WOULD

BE READING.

I REALLY LOVE TO READ.

Wendy: I KNOW WHAT TO

GET YOU FOR CHRISTMAS THEN.

ALL RIGHT, UP NEXT, ISLAMIC

EXPERT RAYMOND IBRAHIM TALKS

ABOUT THE INCREASING

ATROCITIES AGAINST

CHRISTIANS WORLDWIDE.

AND LATER ON, THE LEGENDARY

ALBERT POHOLS IS UP TO BAT.

GET THE INSIDE STORY ON HIS

LEGACY THAT YOU WON'T HEAR

ANYWHERE ELSE.

Pat: WELL, YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB," AND

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE

EVERY ONE OF YOU WITH US.

IT IS GOING TO BE A

TREMENDOUS PROGRAM TODAY.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS ANY

OF IT.

IT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST

STORIES AROUND, BUT YOU

RARELY HEAR ABOUT IT IN THE

MAJOR NEWS MEDIA.

THE PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: MORE PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD EMBRACE

CHRISTIANITY THAN ANY OTHER

RELIGION.

AND CHRISTIANS ARE THE MOST

PERSECUTED.

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS

IS GROWING AROUND THE

WORLD.

CONGRESS NEEDS TO PAY MORE

ATTENTION TO IT.

IT NEEDS TO BE A HIGHER

PRIORITY ISSUE IN OUR

RELATIONS WITH ALL OF THESE

COUNTRIES WHERE THESE

PERSECUTIONS TAKE PLACE.

Reporter: THAT

PERSECUTION HAPPENS MOST

OFTEN IN THE MUSLIM WORLD.

AS THE TERROR GROUP

IDENTIFYING THEMSELVES AT

THE ISLAMIC STATE OF IRAQ IN

SYRIA OR ISIS SWEEPS ACROSS

IRAQ, CREATING A BLOOD BATH,

IRAQI CHRISTIANS SEND OUT AN

URGENT CALL FOR PRAYER.

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

CHRISTIANS HAVE FLED THE

COUNTRY SO FAR.

AND THEN THERE IS EGYPT.

MORE THAN 500,000 EGYPTIAN

WOMEN HAVE BEEN KIDNAPPED

SINCE 2011 AND FORCED TO

CONVERT TO ISLAM.

IN NIGERIA, BOKO HARAM

ABDUCTED NEARLY 300 SCHOOL

GIRLS AND HAS WAGED A

VIOLENT CAMPAIGN AGAINST

CHRISTIANS.

IN EASTERN, PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI REMAINS IN PRISON

AND HAS ENDURED TORTURE FOR

HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH.

THE PERSECUTION TAKES

DIFFERENT FORMS, DEPENDING

ON THE COUNTRY WHERE

CHRISTIANS LIVE.

IN PAKISTAN, CHRISTIANS ARE

TOLERATED, BUT THEY HAVE TO

BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT THEY

SAY.

SIMPLY DEFENDING THEIR FAITH

CAN LEAD TO IMPRISONMENT AND

A POSSIBLE DEATH SENTENCE

THERE.

WHILE IN SOMALIA, A MUSLIM

WHO CONVERTS FROM ISLAM TO

CHRISTIANITY CAN BE KILLED.

TODAY CHRISTIANS FACE

VIOLENCE, DISPLACEMENT, OR

DISCRIMINATION IN 110

NATIONS AROUND THE WORLD.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Pat: CBN NEWS

CONTRIBUTOR RAYMOND IBRAHIM

IS JOINING US.

HE IS AN EXPERT ON ISLAMIC

PERSECUTION.

HE HAS WRITTEN ABOUT IT IN

HIS BOOK CALLED "CRUCIFIED

AGAIN."

GOOD TO BE WITH YOU,

PAT.

Pat: TALK ABOUT WHAT IS

GOING ON.

FOR EXAMPLE IN EGYPT, I

INDICEI UNDERSTAND THEY

HAVE A VICIOUS PRACTICE

AGAINST WOMEN.

WE ALL HEARD ABOUT BOKO

HARAM IN NIGERIA, WHO WENT

AND KIDNAPPED UP TO 300

MOSTLY CHRISTIAN GIRLS, AND

THEY ENSLAVED THEM AND

JUSTIFY IT THROUGH ISLAMIC

TEACHINGS.

IN FACT, THE QURAN, THAT

SAYS IF YOU CONQUER AN

INFIDEL WOMAN, SHE BECOMES

PART OF YOUR CONCUBINE.

AND THEN YOU MOVE TO EGYPT

AND SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES,

IT IS THE SAME EXACT STORY,

BUT, OF COURSE, WE DON'T

HEAR ABOUT IT.

IN EGYPT, SINCE ABOUT 2011,

500 YOUNG COPTIC CHRISTIAN

GIRLS HAVE BEEN ABDUCTED,

LURED AWAY, FORCED INTO

CONVERSION, RAPED, SHAMED,

AND "MARRIED" AS THEY WOULD

PUT IT AND THEY BECOME

MUSLIMS AND THEY JUST

DISAPPEAR.

Pat: YOU DON'T HEAR

ANYTHING ABOUT THAT?

YOU DON'T.

AND IT IS AMAZING TO ME THAT

THE BOKO HARAM STORY CAME

UP, BUT THAT IS JUST THE TIP

OF THE ICEBERG.

IT IS HAPPENING ALL AROUND

THE WORLD.

Pat: IT IS THE MOST

AMAZING THING IN IRAQ.

YOU'VE GOT 4500, MAYBE 5,000

FIGHTERS WITH PICKUP TRUCKS

AND WEAPONS, AND THEY HAVE

OVERCOME AN ARMY OF 600,000,

700,000 PEOPLE.

WHAT'S THE DEAL THERE?

IT IS REALLY

MIND-BOGGLING.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE BIG

PICTURE, A LITTLE OVER A

DECADE AGO, THE UNITED

STATES WENT IN TO TOPPLE

SADDAM HUSSEIN.

10 YEARS LATER, YOU WOULD

THINK WE WOULD HAVE

SOMETHING AS GOOD AS AT

LEAST IT WAS, AND NOW IT IS

CHAOS THERE.

YOU HAVE AN ISLAMIC STATE

THAT HAS COME INTO BEING

THAT IS BEING PORTRAYED AS

MUCH WORSE THAN AL-QAEDA.

IT IS DEPRESSING TO THINK

THAT EVERYWHERE THE U.S.

GOES IN -- IT IS THE SAME

THING IN AFGHANISTAN.

THEY GO IN THERE, AND NOW

YOU'VE GOT MORE OF THE

TERRORISTS.

THE SAME THING WITH THE ARAB

SPRING ISSUE.

Pat: WHAT DO YOU

THINK?

IS IT MYOPIA ON THE PART OF

THE LEADERS OF OUR COUNTRY?

I DO THINK A LOT OF IT IS

MYOPIA, AND I THINK IT IS

MYOPIA BECAUSE OF THE NATURE

OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AND

DEMOCRACY.

THEY'RE FOCUSED ON THEIR

TENURE AS A PRESIDENT, FOUR

YEARS OR EIGHT YEARS, AND

THEY WANT TO MAKE IT LOOK

GOOD DURING THAT TIME.

BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THEM, THE

MEASURES ARE ALWAYS IN THE

LONG RUN GOING TO LEAD TO

SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY

DISASTEROUS.

THE RISE OF THIS ISLAMIC

STATE OF IRAQ AND SYRIA,

THIS IS TERRIBLE.

AND YOU SEE WHAT IS

HAPPENING TO CHRISTIANS AND

OTHERS.

Pat: HOW COULD THEY

HAVE DONE IT?

THEY'RE A BUNCH OF RAG-TAG

GUYS WITH PICKUP TRUCKS AND

MACHINE GUNS AND THEY

OVERRUN A WHOLE ARMY.

HOW DO THEY DO THAT?

I WILL GIVE YOU THE ARAB

WORLD'S VIEW.

THE ARAB WORLD'S VIEW IS THE

UNITED STATES IS HELPING

THEM AND EMPOWERING THEM

ALTERNATIVELY AS THE STRONG

HORSE.

IT IS NOT BECAUSE THEY LIKE

THEM, BUT BECAUSE THEY'RE

CREATING A SORT OF CHAOTIC

SITUATION, TO HAVE THEMALL

FIGHT EACH OTHER, ANDTO

SORT OF BASICALLY WEAKEN

THESE REGIONS.

THAT'S THE ARAB WORLD

NARRATIVE, WHICH IS

MAINSTREAM.

Pat: ARE YOU SERIOUS?

THAT'S APPEARING IN, LIKE,

AL-JAZEERA OR THE

NEWSPAPERS?

NO, NO -- WELL,

AL-JAZEERA WORKS VERY MUCH

WITH WESTERN MEDIA.

BUT THE MORE LOCAL AND THE

ARAB STREET, THAT'S THE

IDEA.

BECAUSE, AS YOU'RE SAYING,

HOW CAN THE UNITED STATES --

HOW CAN WE BEAT THIS RAG-TAG

ARMY, IF YOU WANT TO CALL IT

ARMY?

THE LOGIC IS BECAUSE WE'RE

NOT TRYING TO.

AND WE'RE USING THEM.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE SEEING

IN SYRIA, FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN

THE UNITED STATES COMES AND

JOHN McCAIN IS TAKING

PICTURES WITH BASICALLY

KIDNAPPERS AND TERRORISTS,

AND PORTRAYING THEM AS

FREEDOM FIGHTERS.

APPARENTLY IT IS JUST DIVIDE

AND CONQUER.

Pat: WE REALLY DON'T

UNDERSTAND THE ARAB MIND.

WE DON'T UNDERSTAND THE

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SUNNI

AND SHI'A AN ALL OF THESE

GROUPS.

IS THAT THE PROBLEM?

IT IS A LITTLE BIT OF NOT

UNDERSTANDING AND THAT

MYOPIA, AND THAT CULTURAL

ARROGANCE PROJECTING OUR

PRINCIPLES AND DEMOCRACY ON

TO THEM, WITHOUT

UNDERSTANDING THE THOUSANDS

OF YEARS OF HISTORY THAT HAS

HELPED FORM THE ARAB MIND

AND THE MIDDLE EAST IN

GENERAL.

Pat: I READ SOMEWHERE

WHERE CHENEY SAID WE'RE

GOING TO STAND UP TO THAT

COUNTRY, AND YOU DON'T STAND

UP TO A COUNTRY THAT HAS

THOUSANDS OF YEARS OF

HISTORY.

EXACTLY.

AND YOU HAVE SEEN HOW IT

ENDED IN EVERY SINGLE

COUNTRY.

ARAB, AND EGYPT.

EGYPT IS WHERE THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD CAME TO POWER,

AND IT WAS LEFT TO THE

EYPTIANS TO GET RID OF THE

BROTHERHOOD AND THE

ISLAMISTS.

AND IT CULMINATES WITH

EYPTIANS HOLDING SIGNS OF

OBAMA, AND PORTRAYING HIM AS

THE GUY WHO SUPPORTS THE

ISLAMISTS.

Pat: SUDAN -- I WENT TO

SUDAN SOME YEARS AGO, WHEN I

WAS FAIRLY FRIENDLY. AND I

THINK THE GUY WAS NAMED

NUMARI WHO WAS THE

PRESIDENT.

I WAS WITH GEORGE BUSH, SR.

ABUSH, SR., AT THE TIME.

AND SUDAN HAS BECOME A

VICIOUS STATE.

WHAT ABOUT THAT WOMAN?

WHAT DID THEY DO TO HER AND

WHY?

WHAT WAS THE REASON FOR

THIS?

HER GREAT CRIME IS THAT

THIS WOMAN WANTS TO BE A

CHRISTIAN, AND SHE REFUSES

TO RENOUNCE CHRISTIANITY IN

THE NAME OF ISLAM BECAUSE

THEY SAY SHE IS BORN A

MUSLIM, AND ACCORDING TO

ISLAMIC LAW, AND THIS IS

TRUE, IF YOU'RE BORN MUSLIM

AND YOU TURN TO

CHRISTIANITY, YOU BECOME

EXECUTED.

IT IS VERY SA SADISTIC.

THIS IS A WOMAN WHO IS

PREGNANT.

AND ALL SHE WANTS IS FREEDOM

OF FAITH.

A LOT OF TIMES WE THINK IT

IS LOCALIZED, AND WE THINK

OF SUDAN.

AND CERTAINLY IN SUDAN, THAT

IS THE CASE.

BUT GO TO EASTERN, WHICH

IRAN, AND WE HAVE THE SAME

SITUATION GOING ON THERE.

WE HAVE AN AMERICAN PASTOR,

ABEDINI, IN JAIL AND BEING

TORTURED, BEING FORCED TO

DENOUNCE CHRISTIANITY.

AND WE HAD BEFORE HIM,

PASTOR ABERCANI, AND HE WAS

KEPT IN BECAUSE HE WAS AS

APOSTATE, AND NOW HE IS

CHRISTIAN.

AND THEY'RE TRYING TO FORCE

HIM TO BECOME A MUSLIM.

Pat: WHY ISN'T THERE

SOME OUTRAGE?

WHY DO THE LIBERALS SIDE

WITH THESE PEOPLE?

DON'T THEY UNDERSTAND -- OR

DO THEY JUST HATE

CHRISTIANITY SO BADLY THAT

ANYTHING ANTI-CHRISTIAN THEY

LIKE.

I THINK THAT IS A PART OF

IT.

LIKE, OH, WELL, THEY HAVE IT

COMING BECAUSE THEY'RETHE

BAD GUYS ANYWAYS.

I THINK THEY'RE SO

INDOCTRINATED AND

BRAINWASHED IN THEIR OWN

NARRATIVES THAT THEY BUY

INTO IT.

SO THEY CAN'T SEE WHAT IS

COMMON SENSE.

THIS IS COMMON SENSE.

YOU SEE THE SAME PATTERNS

HAPPENING IN ALL OF THESE

COUNTRIES.

THE MUSLIMS COME AND SAY IT

IS OUR TEACHINGS AND YET WE

STILL HAVE TO REJECT IT.

AND THE AMERICAN LEADERS

SAY, NO, NO, THAT'S NOT

ISLAM, ETC.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT THE

FACT THAT THIS ISIS MAY WELL

HAVE BOMBS THAT GO THROUGH

METAL DETECTORS AND THEY MAY

BE BLOWING UP PLANES IN

AMERICA.

I CERTAINLY BELIEVE IT.

I SPECIFICALLY LIKE TO TALK

ABOUT THE PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS, NOT SIMPLY

BECAUSE OF ITS INTRINSIC

IMPORTANCE, BUT WHERE YOU

SEE CHRISTIANS PERSECUTED,

YOU KNOW THAT AREA IS

BECOMING ULTRA RADICALIZED.

AND WE'RE SEEING THE RISE OF

THESE GUYS, LIKE ISIS, AND

YOU KNOW THESE GUYS ARE

DEVELOPING THESE WEAPONS OR

GETTING THESE WEAPONS.

AND WE'RE THE SAME

INFIDELS.

WE ARE HATED, JUST LIKE

THOSE PEOPLE, THE CHRISTIANS

AND OTHER NON-SUNNIS WHO ARE

BENEATH THEM.

SO IT IS A MATTER OF TIME.

SO WHAT IS HAPPENING THERE

IS IMPORTANT TO WHAT CAN

HAPPEN HERE.

Pam:

Pat: RAYMOND'S BOOK IS

CALLED "CRUCIFIED AGAIN."

AND IT IS A BOOK ABOUT WHAT

IS GOING ON IN THIS REGION

BY SOMEBODY WHO IS FLUENT IN

ARABIC AND IN THE TEACHINGS

OF ISLAM.

"CRUCIFIED AGAIN," IT IS

STILL AVAILABLE AT AMAZON

AND WHERE BOOKS ARE SOLD.

RAYMOND, THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

GOD BLESS YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Pat: WENDY?

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

NEXT UP TO BAT, THE BASEBALL

ICON WITH A DIE-HARD

ATTITUDE.

YOUR BODY WEARS OUT.

I PLAYED CLOSE TO 2,000 AND

SOME GAMES.

THAT'S A LOT OF GAMES.

I ALWAYS WANT TO BE ON THE

FIELD, NO MATTER WHAT.

I BELIEVED THAT IT WAS MY

RESPONSIBILITY TO BE OUT

THERE AND TRY FOR MY TEAM.

Wendy: DISCOVER THE

POWER BEHIND ALBERT PUJOLS'

14 SEASON, THREE M.V.P.s

AND NINE ALL-STAR GAMES,

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

401, THAT'S HOW MANY PLAYERS

WERE PICKED BEFORE ALBERT

PUJOLS IN THE 1999 DRAFT.

AND WHILE HE WAS OVERLOOKED

AT THAT TIME, NO ONE HAS

DONE IT SENSE.

THE POWER-HITTING ANGEL HAS

POSTED CARRIER NUMBERS

SECOND TO NONE.

RECENTLY ALBERT AND HIS

WIFE, DIEDRA SAT DOWN FOR AN

INTERVIEW.

Reporter: ALBERT

PUJOLS' SWINGS THAT REACHED

RAREHEIGHTS OF

ACHIEVEMENT.

EARLIER THIS SEASON, HE

BECAME THE THIRD BEST PLAYER

TO HIT A 500 CAREER

HOMERUNS.

I TRAIN REAL HARD.

I THINK, ALSO, TO HAVE THE

EXPERIENCE OF BEING IN SOME

TOUGH SITUATIONS.

BOTTOM OF THE NINTH, SCORING

POSITION, PRECIOUS.

DO THE THINGS YOU NEED TO DO

TO GET YOU READY FOR 162

GAMES.

Reporter: IN 2012, THE

NINE-TIME ALL-STAR LEFT THE

ST. LOUIS CARDINALS.

HIS SUCCESS EARNED HIM A

DEAL WITH THE LOS ANGELES

ANGELS.

AND NOW IN HIS 14th

SEASON, ALBERT ENDURES AND

DEFIES AGE.

YOUR BODY WEARS OUT.

I PLAYED CLOSE TO 2,000

GAMES.

THAT'S A LOT OF GAMES.

I ALWAYS WANT TO BE IN THE

FIELD, NO MATTER WHAT.

I BELIEVED IT WAS MY

RESPONSIBILITY TO BE OUT

THERE AND TRY FOR MY TEAM.

Reporter: HIS

PASSIONATE COMMITMENT GOES

PAST BASEBALL.

I'M BEING BLESSED WITH SO

MUCH, IN THE FIELD AND OFF

THE FIELD.

Reporter: ALBERT AND

HIS WIFE, DEE DEE, LEAVE THE

PUJOLS' FAMILY FOUNDATION.

MEETING THOSE WITH NEEDS OF

DOWN SYNDROME, AND IMPROVING

THE LIVES OF OTHERS.

WE WANT TO IMPROVE LIVES

OF THE OTHERS.

WE WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

WE WANT TO DO THE THINGS

THAT GOD IS CALLING US TO

DO.

IT COULD BE IN THE HEART

OF IMPOVERISHED COMMUNITY IN

THE DOMINICAN, IT CAN BE AT

A RESTAURANT OR ON THE

BASEBALL FIELD.

IT IS THE COMPASSION THAT IS

THAT CATAPULT THAT LAUNCH US

INTO WHATEVER ACTION WE'RE

GOING TO TAKE.

Reporter: AND WHEREVER

IT TAKES THEM.

WHILE BASEBALL PROVIDES THE

PLATFORM, ALBERT'S

CONSISTENT ABIDING FAITH

PROVIDES HIS PERSPECTIVE.

YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE WHO

YOU REPRESENT, AND THAT'S

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

HE IS THE ONE THAT KEEPS ME

HUMBLE.

BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT IT IS

NOT ABOUT ME.

AND HE CHANGED ME TO BE A

FOLLOWER OF THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST.

AND HE TOLD ME TO CARE ABOUT

OTHER PEOPLE FIRST.

AND I'M ABLE TO PUT THAT

THROUGH THE FOUNDATION NOW

AND I HONOR AND THANK HIM

EVERY DAY FOR GIVING ME THIS

PLATFORM AND THE

OPPORTUNITY.

Reporter: THEIR MISSION

TRIPS TO THE DOMINICAN

REPUBLIC ARE MOTIVATED BY

GREAT EMPATHY.

IT IS WHERE ALBERT GREW UP,

AND ONCE USED LIMES AS

BASEBALL TO PRACTICE THE

GAME HE LOVES.

AS A LITTLE BOY, I JUST

WANTED TO BE A PROFESSIONAL

ATHLETE.

IF YOU GO DOWN TO THE D.R.,

ON EVERY CORNER YOU SEE

PEOPLE PLAYING BASEBALL.

WHETHER IT IS IN THE STREET,

IN A PARK, IN THEIR

BACKYARD.

AND THAT WAS MY DREAM.

Reporter: THAT DREAM

HAS BEEN FULFILLED, AND THEN

SOME.

IT NOW EXTENDS TO

INFLUENCING LIVES.

THERE IS NO GREATER GIFT

IN THE WORLD THAT YOU COULD

GIVE SOMEBODY THAN YOUR

SERVICE.

THIS FOUNDATION IS ABOUT

JESUS.

IT'S JUST THE IDEA OF BEING

LIKE HIM.

Reporter: FOR ALBERT

AND DEE DEE, THAT MEANS

DIRECT INVOLVEMENT THROUGH

OUT REACHES, EVENTS, AND

INTERACTION.

WE TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY,

NOT JUST GOING DOWN TO OUR

MISSION TRIP OR ANY EVENT,

TO JUST GIVE.

WE TELL THEM WHERE THAT GIFT

COMES FROM.

I THINK WE TAKE THE

OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE OUR

TESTIMONY, TO TALK ABOUT

HIM.

Reporter: DEE DEE HAS

WATCHED HER HUSBAND, THE

SLUGGER, MOTIVATED BY AN

AWARENESS OF GOD'S LOVE,

INITIATE GENEROUS ACTS OF

SERVICE AND TIME.

THE UNMERITED FAVOR THAT

IS SHOWN IN HIS LIFE, FROM

THE TIME OF COMING OUT OF A

THIRD WORLD NATION, GOD

KEEPS SHOWING UP.

HE KEEPS RIDING HIM TO THE

NEXT LEVEL. AND TO WITNESS

GOD'S LOVE FOR HIM MAKES ME

WANT TO BE A GREATER PART OF

HIS LIFE.

Reporter: ALBERT

PUJOLS, ICONIC BASEBALL

GREAT, ROUNDING THE BASES

WHILE HEADING HOME, IN A

LIFE THAT IS MORE JUST A

GAME.

WHERE HE HAS TAKEN ME,

JUST AMAZING.

JUST TO GIVE THE OPPORTUNITY

TO THE LORD TO COME INTO

YOUR LIFE AND TRANSPORT YOU,

HE IS ALWAYS THERE.

HE IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE

THERE FOR US.

WHENEVER WE WANT IT, HE IS

GOING TO RECEIVE YOU WITH

HIS ARMS OPEN.

Wendy: WHAT AN

INSPIRING COUPLE.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE

PUJOLS' FAMILY FOUNDATION,

YOU CAN LOG ON TO OUR

WEBSITE, CBN.COM.

I KNOW YOU'RE A BIG FAN OF

ALBERT'S.

Pat: HE IS THE

GREATEST.

I LIKE OTHER SPORTS BESIDES

BASEBALL, BUT HE IS GREAT.

Wendy: ARE YOU READY TO

BRING IT ON?

BONITA WRITES, "I HAVE READ

THE BIBLE, AND SEVERAL TIMES

JESUS STATED HE IS NOT GOD,

BUT HIS SON, AND THAT GOD,

HIS FATHER, IS THE ONE AND

TRUE GOD.

EVEN IN THE BOOK OF JOHN,

AFTER JOHN CLAIMED THAT THE

WORLD BECAME FLESH, JESUS

CLAIMS LATER IN THE BOOK HE

AND GOD ARE NOT ONE IN THE

SAME.

WHY DO YOU KEEP DISMISSING

THAT FACT?"

Pat: YOU'RE READING A

DIFFERENT BIBLE THAN I

READ.

ALSO IN JOHN, IF YOU'LL FIND

THE TIME WHEN JESUS CAME

BACK AND APPEARED TO HIS

DISCIPLES, THERE WAS A MAN

WHO WAS KNOWN AS THOMAS.

AND HE IS KNOWN AS DOUBTING

THOMAS.

HE SAID UNLESS I PUT MY HAND

IN THE NAIL PRINTS, I WON'T

BELIEVE.

AND JESUS APPEARED AND SAID,

OKAY, DO IT.

STICK YOUR HAND IN THERE.

AND THOMAS GOT ON HIS KNEES

AND HE SAID, "MY LORD AND MY

GOD."

IF HE WASN'T GOD, HE WON'T

HAVE RECEIVED IT.

AND PHILLIP SAID TO HIM,

SHOW US THE FATHER.

AND JESUS SAID, HAVE YOU

BEEN WITH ME SO LONG THAT

YOU DON'T KNOW THAT ME HAS

SEEN THE FATHER.

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THE

TRINITY AND WHAT THE TRINITY

IS.

I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE HE

SAYS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT BIBLE

YOU'RE READING, BUT JESUS

CLEARLY, CLEARLY

ACKNOWLEDGED THAT HE WAS

DIVINE.

HE SAID HE WAS THE SON OF

GOD.

HE SAID BEFORE THE ASSEMBLED

IN SAN HIDRON, HE SAID

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THE SON

OF GOD COMING FROM THE HANDS

OF GLORY.

AND THEY SAID, ARE YOU THE

SON OF GOD.

AND HE SAID YES.

AND THEY SAID, ARE YOU THE

MESSIAH?

AND HE SAID YES.

THERE IS NO QUESTION.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, HE

UNDERSTOOD THAT THE FATHER

WAS THE FATHER, AND THE SON

WAS THE SON, AND THE HOLY

SPIRIT WAS THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Wendy: GLEN WRITES, "MY

FRIEND WAS THINKING ABOUT

GETTING A TATTOO OF JESUS ON

THE CROSS ON HIS UPPER

BACK.

IS GETTING A TATTOO OF JESUS

A SIN?

I SEE MANY PEOPLE WITH

RELIGIOUS TATTOOS.

IS THAT OKAY?"

Pat: IT DOESN'T MAKE IT

OKAY BECAUSE IT IS

RELIGIOUS.

IT DOESN'T REALLY MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

YOU LOOK AT THE BIBLE, AND

THE PEOPLE ARE TOLD NOT TO

MARK THEIR BODIES AND CUT

THEMSELVES.

TATTOOING IS A HEATHAN

PRACTICE.

IT IS NOT A CHRISTIAN

PRACTICE TO MAR THE BODY GOD

GAVE YOU.

AND YOU SEE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

GONE CRAZY ON THIS.

THEIR BODIES ARE JUST FILLED

WITH THESE THINGS.

IT IS A HEATHAN PRACTICE AND

IT IS PROHIBITED IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT.

THE FACT IT IS JESUS DOESN'T

MAKE A BIT OF DIFFERENCE.

Wendy: SEAN WRITES,

"MANY YEARS AGO I WAS

MARRIED FOR ONLY THREE

YEARS.

SHE WAS THE ONE WHO FILED

FOR DIVORCE.

I DIDN'T BECAUSE OF MY

CHRISTIAN VIEWS.

I HAVE ASKED GOD TO FORGIVE

ME FOR MARRYING THIS WOMAN

SINCE IT WAS CLEARLY NOT

GOD'S WILL.

CAN I REMARRY NOW

CONSIDERING SHE DIVORCED ME

AND ABANDONED HER WEDDING

VOWS?"

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

JESUS GAVE ONE CLEAR

EXCEPTION.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOUR WIFE IS

AN UNBELIEVER, BUT PAUL

SAID, IF AN UNBELIEVER IS

PLEASED TO DEPART, THE

BROTHER OR SISTER IS NOT

BOUND IN THAT CASE.

YOUR SPOUSE HAS APPARENTLY

REMARRIED, COMMITTING

ADULTERY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE IS

DOING, BUT WHATEVER IT IS,

SHE HAS BROKEN THE

RELATIONSHIP THAT YOU HAVE,

AND YOU ARE NOT BOUND ANY

LONGER TO THAT

RELATIONSHIP.

SO UNDER ANY RUBIRK YOU WANT

TO ESTABLISH, YOU'RE FREE TO

GET MARRIED.

BUT DON'T MAKE ANOTHER

MISTAKE.

Wendy: CASSIDY

WRITE, "I'M LIVING A

CONSTANT BATTLE DAILY.

I THOUGHT I HAVE BEEN SAVED

TWICE.

AND FOR THREE YEARS I HAVE

LIVED WITH DOUBT AND FEAR.

I HAVE TRIED AND TRIED TO

PRAY, BUT THE DEVIL IS

CONSTANTLY PUTTING NEGATIVE

THOUGHTS IN THE BACK OF MY

MIND.

MY QUESTION IS: HOW CAN I

KNOW FOR SURE IF I AM SAVED

OR NOT, AND HOW CAN I GET

RID OF THESE THOUGHTS?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS,

AND GET A CONCORDENCE AND

LOOK THESE UP -- YOU SHOULD

KNOW THAT YOU ARE BORN AGAIN

AND YOU LOVE THE BROTHEREN.

DO YOU LOVE THE WORD OF

GOD?

DO YOU LOVE JESUS?

THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW.

AS YOU WALK IN THE LIGHT, WE

HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH ONE

ANOTHER, AND THE BLOOD OF

JESUS CHRIST CONTINUOUSLY

CLEANSES US.

IT IS AS YOU WALK, YOU OBEY

HIS COMMANDMENTS.

YOU LIVE FOR HIM AND YOU

LOVE HIM.

AND OUT OF THAT THERE FLOWS

THE HOLY SPIRIT, BEARING

WITNESS THAT YOU'RE A CHILD

OF GOD.

IF YOU SINCERELY HAVE

REPENTED OF SIN, AND SIN

SINCERELY HAVE GIVEN YOUR

HEART TO THE LORD, YOU DON'T

NEED TO BE HAVING DOUBTS.

IT IS LIKE A CHILD WHO HAS

BEEN ADOPTED INTO A FAMILY.

DO YOU WANT THAT KID TO BE

ALWAYS WONDERING IF HE IS

GOING TO GET KICKED OUT.

NOW, SON, WE ADOPTED YOU,

BUT IF YOU MISBEHAVE AND YOU

BAT THE BALL IN THE WRONG

DIRECTION, I'M GOING TO

THROW YOU OUT.

NO!

THE CHILD IS PART OF THE

FAMILY.

AND FROM THAT MOMENT ON,

YOU'RE PART OF THE FAMILY OF

GOD.

TAKE THAT, ACCEPT THE WORD

OF GOD, AND BEGIN TO PRAISE

HIM FOR IT.

BUT LIVE IN THE WORD, AND AS

YOU OBEY HIM AND REACH OUT

TO OTHERS, YOU WILL FIND THE

SPIRIT BEARING WITNESS WITH

YOUR SPIRIT.

Wendy: GREAT ANSWER.

AND GREAT QUESTIONS.

STILL AHEAD, A FAMILY

EXPERIENCES A FREAK

ACCIDENT.

WHEN A VAN DOOR OPENS,

IT'S LIKE A PARACHUTE.

AND I JUST SAW KENNY JUST

WHIPPING AROUND, BEING JUST

CATAPULTED OUT OF THE

VEHICLE.

AND I SLAMMED ON THE BRAKES,

AND A SEMI TRUCK HIT US.

Wendy: STAY TUNED FOR

AN INCREDIBLE STORY OF THE

SUPER NATURAL POWER OF

PRAYER.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

A VICTORY FOR PRO-LIFERS IN

TEXAS.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS STRUCK

DOWN A LAW THAT FORCED

PRO-LIFE PREGNANCY CARE

CENTERS IN AUSTIN TO REFER

MEN TO ABORTION PROVIDERS.

THEY REPORT THAT THE JUDGE

RULED THE REQUIREMENT IS

UNCONSTITUTIONALLY VAGUE.

THE LAW ALLOWS THE CITY TO

FIND PRO-LIFE CENTERS FOR

NOT POSTING SIGNS

ENCOURAGING WOMEN TO GO TO

ABORTION CENTERS, EVEN

THOUGH IT DIDN'T MAKE SUCH

REQUIREMENTS OF PRO-CHOICE

CENTERS.

REPRESENTATIVE FRANK BUCK

CALLED HIMSELF A FOLLOWER OF

JESUS.

THE VIRGINIA REPUBLICAN SAYS

HE IS DEEPLY GRIEVED BY WHAT

TRANSPIRED AT LAST WEEK'S

GATHERING OF THE P.C. U. 'S

GENERAL ASSEMBLY.

SPEAKING ON THE HOUSE FLOOR

ON TUESDAY, WOLF SAID THE

VOTE VIOLATES THE BIBLICAL

DEFINITION OF MARRIAGE AS

THE JOINING OF ONE MAN AND

ONE WOMAN.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

CRIEMP

Pat: WHEN TYPHOON HA

HAIAN APPROACHED, CBN'S TEAM

WAS ON THE GROUND, HELPING

THE STORM SURVIVORS REBUILD

THEIR LIVES.

Reporter: THIS PILE OF

WOOD IS ALL THAT IS LEFT OF

NARSIS' HOME.

LAST NOVEMBER A TYPHOON

RIPPED THROUGH THE

PHILIPPINES, LEAVING DEATH

AND DESTRUCTION IN ITS

WAKE.

CBN QUICKLY PROVIDED

EMERGENCY FOOD AND WATER FOR

PEOPLE LIKE NARSIS AND HER

FAMILY.

AS NARSIS' BROTHER HELPED

HER TO REBUILD HER HOUSE, A

CBN TRAUMA TEAM ALSO

PROVIDED GRIEF COUNSELLING

FOR HER AND OTHERS WHO LOST

FAMILY MEMBERS IN THE

TYPHOON.

THE COUNSELLOR ENCOURAGED

ME NOT TO LOSE HOPE IN GOD

AND TO KEEP PRAYING.

I FELT BETTER AFTER WE

PRAYED.

Reporter: WE ALSO

HELPED THE CHILDREN FACE

THEIR LOSS USING ART

THERAPY.

AND AS SCHOOL BEGAN AGAIN,

WE SET UP A SPECIAL

SCREENING OF "SUPERBOOK,"

TELLING THE CHILDREN ABOUT

THE FIRST CHRISTMAS.

I LIKE HOW THE ANGELS

ANNOUNCED THE BIRTH OF

JESUS.

I KNOW HE IS HELPING US.

Reporter: TEACHERS

THERE SAY THAT "SUPERBOOK"

HAS BEEN A BIG HELP TO THE

KIDS TRAUMATIZED BY THE

STORM.

IN FACT, MANY CHILDREN HAVE

PRAYED TO RECEIVE JESUS AS

THEIR SAVIOR.

"SUPERBOOK" TOOK THEIR

MINDS OFF THEIR BAD

EXPERIENCES.

EVEN I WAS REMINDED TO HAVE

FAITH IN GOD.

I THANK GOD HE SAVED OUR

LIVES, AND I'M GRATEFUL FOR

PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO CARE FOR

US.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING US.

Pat: FOLKS, YOU CAN

CHANGE THE WORLD.

YOU CAN DO IT ONE PERSON AT

A TIME.

IT IS SUCH A THRILL TO BE

ABLE TO HELP SOMEBODY.

AND THEY'RE SO OPEN TO

HELP.

THEY DON'T RESIST HELP.

THEY WELCOME HELP.

AND WE CAN REBUILD A LIFE.

YOU CAN GIVE SOMEBODY A

MEANINGFUL EMPLOYMENT.

YOU CAN GIVE THEM

EDUCATION.

YOU CAN GIVE THEM EYESIGHT.

YOU CAN TAKE AWAY

CATARACTS.

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS WE

CAN DO.

AND ALL OF US TOGETHER CAN

MAKE AN ENORMOUS

DIFFERENCE.

ONE PERSON IS KIND OF TOUGH,

BUT WHEN HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF US GET TOGETHER

WITH SMALL AMOUNTS OF MONEY,

LARGE THINGS HAPPEN.

NOW, THERE IS SOMETHING THAT

WE'RE OFFERING RIGHT NOW.

IT'S CALLED "LIVING UNDER

GOD'S BLESSING."

THERE IS A FEAST OF

TABERNACLES ADDRESS THAT I

GAVE OVER IN JERUSALEM THAT

SEEMED TO -- IT WAS SUCH AN

ANOINTING I COULD HARDLY

STAND UP.

THERE IS A TEACHING IN HERE

THAT GORDON DID THAT IS VERY

TREMENDOUS.

WE'LL OFFER THAT TO YOU WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WHAT DOES IT TAKE?

65 CENTS A DAY.

Wendy: AND MANY PEOPLE

ARE WATCHING IT.

MANY PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY

SEEN THE D.V.D.

AND DALE AND ALICIA FROM

CALIFORNIA SAY, "THIS LATEST

D.V.D. MAKES US FEEL AS

THOUGH WE'RE LIVING UNDER

GOD'S BLESSING.

THANK YOU FOR INCLUDING THE

"MADE IN ISRAEL" SERIES.

IT IS A REAL EY EYE-OPENER

THAT WE MIGHT NOT HEAR ABOUT

OTHERWISE."

Pat: GORDON IS NOW

DOING A SECOND SERIES.

HE IS OVER IN EUROPE,

TRACING THE ROOTS OF

ACTIVITY THAT HELPED THE

FORMATION OF ISRAEL.

IT SHOULD BE ANOTHER

INTERESTING THING.

WEMPLET I

Wendy: I CANNOT WAIT.

I LOVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH

ISRAEL.

Pat: HE IS VOICING OVER

AND HELPING TO PRODUCE, AND

AARON ZIMMERMAN HAS DONE A

LOT OF THE WRITING.

I THINK IT WILL BE REALLY

GOOD.

OKAY, WE'VE GOT SOME PRAYER

FOR YOU.

Wendy: COMING UP, AN

ACCIDENT THAT NO ONE COULD

HAVE PREDICTED, EXCEPT A

13-YEAR-OLD GIRL.

I HAD A DREAM -- WELL, IT

WAS MORE OF A NIGHTMARE.

SHE SAYS, DAD, I SAW ALL

OF THIS.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHAT

SHE SAW AND HOW IT HELPED

SAVE HER BROTHER'S LIFE,

NEXT.

PAPER

Wendy: FOR MANY PEOPLE,

PRAYER IS A LAST RESORT.

IT IS WHAT THEY TURN TO

AFTER THEY HAVE LOST ALL

OTHER OPTIONS.

FOR THE FAMILY IN OUR NEXT

STORY, IT IS WHAT THEY

TURNED TO FIRST AFTER THEIR

SON LAID DYING ON THE

INTERSTATE.

I HEARD HIS HEAD HIT THE

PAVEMENT.

AND I HEARD THE HALLOW

SOUND.

I JUST COULD NOT THINK OF

ANY SCENARIO THAT MY SON

WOULD BE ALIVE.

Reporter: LANCE AND

ANGELA WERE DRIVING THEIR

FAMILY HOME FROM AN EVENING

CHURCH SERVICE, WHEN ANGELA

GOT AN EERIE FEELING AND

ASKED THE KIDS TO CHECK

THEIR SEAT BELTS.

SUDDENLY THE PASSENGER SIDE

DOOR OF THEIR MINIVAN

SLIPPED OPEN.

THEIR 13-YEAR-OLD SON KENNY

WASN'T FASTENED IN.

WHEN A VAN DOOR OPENS, IT

IS LIKE A PARACHUTE.

I JUST SAW KENNY JUST

WHIPPING AROUND, BEING JUST

CATAPULTED OUT OF THE

VEHICLE.

AND I SLAMMED ON THE BRAKES

AND A SEMI TRUCK HIT US.

EVERYTHING WENT INTO SLOW

MOTION AT THAT POINT.

ABOUT HALF A MILE AWAY

FROM WHERE THE BODY FELL, WE

CAME TO A STOP.

AND WHEN I GOT TO HIM, HE

WAS JUST LAYING IN A FETAL

POSITION.

THERE WAS A POOL OF BLOOD HE

WAS LAYING IN.

Reporter: TEXTS AND

CALLS WERE SENT OUT

IMMEDIATELY TO PRAY FOR

KENNY.

FRIENDS QUICKLY ARRIVED FROM

THEIR CHURCH NEARBY.

LANCE RAN DOWN THE ROAD TO

HIS SON.

BY THE TIME I RAN UP AND

GOT TO WHERE KENNY WAS, MY

PASTOR WAS THERE HOLDING MY

SON, COVERED IN MY SON'S

BLOOD, PRAYING FOR HIM.

FROM THAT MOMENT WE NEVER

WERE ALONE.

I PUT BOTH ARMS AROUND

HIM AND HELD HIM.

PART OF HIS FACE WAS GONE,

AND THERE WAS A HOLE IN THE

SIDE OF HIS CHEEK, THE UPPER

PART OF HIS CHEEK.

IT WAS VERY QUICKLY THAT

I REALIZED THIS IS BIGGER

THAN WE CAN HANDLE.

THAT'S WHEN I PRAYED OUT TO

GOD.

GOD, WE REALLY NEED YOU.

Reporter: KENNY

FLATLINED A COUPLE OF TIMES

WHILE EMERGENCY CREWS

LIFE-FLIGHTED HIM TO THE

HOSPITAL.

HE WAS PLACED ON LIFE

SUPPORT AND HE WAS NOT

EXPECTED TO LIVE.

HE WAS NOT BREATHING,

WITH THE PRESSURE INSIDE THE

BRAIN INCREASING HIS HEART.

HE CODED.

AT THE TIME OF ADMISSION,

THE PROGNOSIS WAS EXTREMELY

POOR.

PART OF ME DID NOT WANT

TO BELIEVE WHAT THE DOCTOR

HAS TO SAY.

NO, IT'S NOT NO UNTIL GOD

SAYS IT IS FINAL.

AND I SAID, GOD, I JUST WANT

YOU TO KNOW, I'VE WATCHED

THE LAME WALK, AND TONIGHT

YOU AND I ARE GOING TO SEE

GOD RAISE MY SON UP FROM THE

BED.

I PUT MY FAITH ON THE WORD

OF GOD THAT HE IS GOING TO

RAISE MY SON UP.

WE JUST NEED TO WAIT THIS

MOMENT OUT.

FROM THE FIRST DAY WE

SAID WE'RE GOING TO FAST AND

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

KENNY.

AND WE CONTINUED TO PRAY

AND PRAY.

Reporter: THAT NIGHT

KENNY'S TWIN SISTER,

KIMBERLY, TOLD HER DAD ABOUT

A VISION SHE HAD WEEKS

BEFORE THE ACCIDENT.

SHE SAYS, DAD, I SAW ALL

THIS.

I HAD A DREAM -- WELL, IT

WAS MORE OF A NIGHTMARE.

KENNY FELL OUT OF THE VAN,

AND THEN HE SUDDENLY JUST

STARTED WALKING.

GOD WAS JUST SHOWING US

THAT HE WAS IN CONTROL.

HE SPOKE THIS INNER DREAM TO

KENNY'S TWIN SISTER FOR OUR

ENCOURAGEMENT.

I GUESS JUST HEARING THAT

MY SON IS GOING TO WALK

AGAIN GAVE THEM ENOUGH

REASSURANCE THAT KEEP

PRAYING.

WE WEREN'T LOOKING AT THE

PHYSICAL.

WE WERE STANDING ON WHAT GOD

HAD SAID, FROM HIS

13-YEAR-OLD SISTER, THAT

KENNY WAS GOING TO BE ALL

RIGHT.

Reporter: CHURCH

MEMBERS STOOD WITH THE

FAMILY IN ROUND-THE-CLOCK

PRAYER AND BELIEVED FOR

KENNY'S HEALING.

BUT FOR NOW KENNY REMAINED

IN A COMA.

MEDICALLY IT WAS STARTING

TO TAKE IMPACT ON ME THAT

POSSIBLY HE IS NOT IN

THERE.

BUT INSIDE OF MY HEART AND

IN MY SPIRIT, MY FAITH

BELIEVED OTHER THING, THAT

GOD IS GOING TO RAISE HIM

UP.

AND I SAID, GOD, THE GOD OF

ALL FLESH, IS THERE ANYTHING

TOO HARD FOR YOU?

YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE

HIM.

I SAID MY LIFE WOULD NOT BE

THE SAME IF HE IS NOT HERE.

CAN YOU BREATHE LIFE BACK

INTO MY SON'S BODY?

Reporter: FIVE DAYS

AFTER THE ACCIDENT, KENNY

SHOWED NO SIGNS OF

IMPROVEMENT.

ANGELA HELD KENNY'S HAND AND

TALKED TO HIM.

THEN SHE SAYS THE MIRACULOUS

HAPPENED.

HE SQUEEZED MY HAND.

AND IT WAS A MOMENT OF

EXCITEMENT.

AND I JUST, YOU SQUEEZED MY

HAND.

AND I PUT MY HAND AGAIN INTO

KENNY'S HANDS.

AND I SAID, KENNY, IF THAT

WAS YOU THAT SQUEEZED MY

HAND, WOULD YOU PLEASE DO IT

AGAIN.

AND HE GENTLY, VERY FAINT, A

SLIGHT MOVE, AND IT WAS A

MOMENT OF VICTORY.

MY SON IS ALIVE.

HE IS IN THERE.

GOD IS BEGINNING TO DO

SOMETHING.

THE DOCTORS DID NOT

BELIEVE IT.

AND EVERY TIME SOMETHING

WOULD HAPPEN, A SQUEEZE OF

MY HAND OR SOMETHING, THEY

WOULD SAY, THAT'S JUST A

REFLEX.

BUT WE KNEW BETTER BECAUSE

IT WAS IN CONJUNCTION TO

WHAT WE WERE DOING.

WE KNEW GOD COULD RAISE THE

DEAD.

WE KNEW GOD COULD HEAL THE

SICK.

Reporter: THE MIRACLES

CONTINUED TO COME.

A FEW DAYS LATER, KENNY

OPENED HIS EYES.

IT WAS A WONDERFUL THING

TO SEE HIM LOOK AT ME.

AND OPEN HIS EYES FOR A

MOMENT.

AND I TALKED TO HIM, AND HIS

EYEBROWS GOT REAL BIG, LIKE,

YES, I UNDERSTAND YOU.

WE KEPT TELLING HIM WE'RE

GETTING BETTER, AND KENNY,

YOU NEED TO BE PRAYING, YOU

NEED TO BE SEEKING THE

LORD.

YOU NEED TO BE CALLING ON

GOD'S HEALING.

YOU'VE BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT.

AND HE WOULD SQUEEZE OUR

HAND.

LIKE HE WOULD KNOW, YES, I

AM PRAYING.

Reporter: KENNY

PROGRESSIVELY REGAINED

CONSCIOUSLY.

AND NOW QUESTIONS REMAINED

REGARDING THE EXTENT OF

BRAIN DAMAGE KENNY HAD

SUSTAINED.

UNTIL ONE AFTERNOON ANGELA

GAVE KENNY HER LAPTOP.

HE LOGGED INTO Facebook

AND SENT A MESSAGE TO A

FRIEND.

KENNY WAS BACK.

GOD RESTORED HIM FULLY.

HE GAVE HIM BACK HIS

MEMORY.

THE DEVIL COULDN'T STEAL

THAT FROM HIM.

THE VERY NEXT THING I

REMEMBER IS WAKING UP IN THE

HOSPITAL, THINKING I WAS IN

SOMEONE'S ROOM.

I WAS LOOKING AROUND AND

WONDERING, HOW DID I GET

HERE?

MOM LOOKED UP AT ME AND WAS

JUST AMAZED THAT I WAS

ACTUALLY TALKING TO MY MOM.

ALL I'M DOING IS TALKING.

I DO THIS EVERY DAY.

AND SHE LOOKED UP AT ME,

YOU'RE STILL THE SAME KENNY

AND RUBBED MY HEAD.

Reporter: TO THE

AMAZEMENT OF THE DOCTORS, 32

DAYS AFTER THE ACCIDENT,

KENNY WALKED OUT OF THE

HOSPITAL ON HIS OWN TWO

FEET, HEALED.

FROM WHEN WE SAW HIM IN

THE E.R. AND THE I.C.U. TO

WHERE HE IS NOW, IF THIS IS

NOT A MIRACLE, I DON'T KNOW

WHAT WOULD BE.

WHEN KENNY WAS LEAVING

THE HOSPITAL, THEY ALL STOOD

AND APPLAUDED AS HE WALKED

AWAY.

Reporter: KENNY'S

FAMILY ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO

PUT THEIR TRUST IN JESUS AND

NEVER STOP PRAYING.

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO HEAR AND

TO SEE IT IN SUCH A DYNAMIC

WAY.

I GOT TO SEE JESUS FACE

TO FACE AND EXPERIENCE THE

RESURRECTION POWER OF JESUS

CHRIST.

I'VE COME TO A NEW

PLATEAU.

A NEW ERA IN MY LIFE OF

KNOWING GOD EVEN MORE.

YOU JUST HAVE TO STAY

WITH GOD.

YOU HAVE TO KEEP BELIEVING.

HE WILL WATCH OUT FOR YOU

AND WATCH OVER YOU.

Wendy: WOW!

Pat: I AM THE LORD, THE

GOD OF ALL FLESH.

IS THERE ANYTHING TOO HARD

FOR ME?

WHAT IS YOUR NEED?

FOR KENNY, IT WAS

IMPOSSIBLE.

WHAT HAD HAPPENED TO HIM WAS

THE END.

HE WAS GOING TO DIE.

THE DOCTORS THOUGHT HE WAS

GOING TO DIE.

EVERYBODY THOUGHT HE WAS

GOING TO DIE.

BUT THE PASTOR HELD ON, AND

THE MOTHER AND THE FATHER

HELD ON.

AND GOD ALMIGHTY HAD SENT A

WORD THROUGH HIS SISTER.

YOU WILL NOT DIE, BUT YOU

WILL LIVE AND GLORIFY THE

LORD.

WHATEVER YOU'VE GOT, IT

CAN'T BE ANY WORSE THAN WHAT

KENNY HAD.

LET'S BELIEVE GOD FOR YOUR

HEALING.

WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS, WE'RE GOING TO

AGREE FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, I AGREE WITH THOSE

IN THIS AUDIENCE.

I AGREE WITH THOSE WHO ARE

CRYING OUT FOR THEIR LOVED

ONES.

I AGREE.

THERE IS A TWISTED LIMB.

YOUR FOOT AND LEG, THE WHOLE

THING IS TWISTED AT A CRAZY

ANGLE.

GOD HAS JUST STRAIGHTENED

OUT THAT KNEE AND

STRAIGHTENED OUT THAT LEG,

AND ALL OF THE LIGAMENTS AND

JOINTS ARE ABSOLUTELY

WHOLE.

Wendy: THERE ARE PEOPLE

SAYING, I DON'T DESERVE

HEALING BECAUSE I BROUGHT

THIS ON MYSELF.

AND JESUS IS SAYING TO YOU

TODAY, I AM WILLING.

I'M THE GOD WHO FORGIVES ALL

OF YOUR SINS AND HEALS ALL

OF YOUR DISEASES.

SO JUST RECEIVE IT.

HE WANTS TO HEAL YOU.

Pat: THERE IS

SOMEBODY -- I CAN FEEL IT IN

MY LUNGS.

YOU'VE GOT A LUNG FUNGUS OF

SOME KIND, AND IT IS JUST

REALLY HARD TO BREATHE.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR CHEST

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

WE BELIEVE GOD THAT THAT

FUNGUS WILL DIE AND THAT

YOU'RE LUNGS WILL BE CLEAR

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

TOUCH!

THANK YOU, LORD.

WENDY?

Wendy: THERE IS SOMEONE

WHO IS HOLDING YOUR HEAD,

AND I THINK YOUR NAME IS

BILL.

YOU ARE IN SO MUCH PAIN WITH

A MIGRAINE, AND THE LORD IS

TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOW.

YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL HOT OIL

GOING ALL OVER YOUR BODY

RIGHT NOW IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

Pat: IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, RECEIVE AN ANSWER TO

YOUR PRAYER.

FINANCIAL BLESSING, FAMILY

BLESSING.

MAY THE LORD GRANT YOU THE

DESIRE OF YOUR HEART, BY HIS

MERCY, IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: THAT'S ALL OF THE

TIME WE'VE GOT.

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

WE'RE GOING TO LEAVE YOU NOW

WITH TODAY'S POWER MINUTE,

TAKEN FROM MALACHI 4: 2: "TO

YOU WHO FEAR MY NAME, THE

SON OF RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL

ARRIVE WITH HEALING IN HIS

WINGS."

FOR PEOPLE SUFFERING WITH

PARKINSON'S DISEASE.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS

THAT.
