The 700 Club - July 2, 2014

Tajuan's at-risk childhood set her up for a life of pain, but today she is helping others on that same path. Plus, when Sue was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, her apathy towards God began to shift. Read Transcript


HE WAS REALLY, REALLY

NICE, AND HE SAID,ç I'LL

TEACH YOU HOW TO TAKE CARE

OF YOURSELF.

Gordon: INSIDE THE

FASTEST GROWING CRIMINAL

ENTERPRISE IN THE WORLD.

I'VE BEEN TO EVERY STATE

IN A TRUCK.

I WAS JUST A DOPE FIEND AND

A WHORE AND A PROSTITUTE.

Gordon: SHE SHARES HOW

SHE ESCAPED.

I POINTED OUT THE WINDOW

AND SAID, I USED TO WALK THE

SAMEç STREET.ç

Gordon: ON TODAY'S "THE

700 CLUB."

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB."

FOR TODAY'S HEADLINES, LET'S

GO OVER TO THE CBN

NEWSDESK.

Reporter: GORDON, THE

CRISIS ALONG THE BORDER WITH

MEXICO IS SPREADING TO TOWNS

ACROSS THE U.S.

IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, A

TENSE STANDOFF, WITH PEOPLE

THERE BLOCKING BUSES FROM

BRINGING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS

TO THEIR COMMUNITY.ç

DALE HURDç HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE TOWNS

PEOPLE OF MURIETTA,

CALIFORNIA, ARE ANGRY.

AND THEY BLAME PRESIDENT

OBAMA.

WHERE THE CAMERA.

MR. OBAMA, STOP IT.

Reporter: MOST SPEAKERS

BLAMED THE PRESIDENT FOR

ALLOWING AN IMMIGRANT

INVASION.

I DON'T WANT TO LOSE OUR

COMMUNITY.

I FEEL LIKE WE'RE

DESTROYED.

Reporter:çç AN ESTIMATED

52,000 CHILDREN HAVE CROSSED

THE BORDER SINCE OCTOBER,

AND ANOTHER 80,000 ARE

EXPECTED TO CROSS THE BORDER

THIS YEAR, IN WHAT WHIT THE

WHITE HOUSE CALLS A SECURITY

CRISIS.

ROW

Reporter: PROTESTORS

BLOCKED THE VEHICLES, AND

SOME PROTESTORS WERE THERE

TO SUPPORT THE ILLEGALS.

IT IS CHILDREN.

IT;HRjç NOT THEIR FAULT.

THEY'RE INNOCENT CHILDREN.

Reporter: BUT MANY

STRONGLY OPPOSED.

THEY'RE COMING HERE FOR

FREE FOOD, FREE HOUSING,

FREE MEDICAL.

OUR HOSPITALS ARE ALREADY

OVERBURDENED.

THEY NEED TO RESPECT THE

RULES.

I CAME OVER.

MY FOLKS CAME OVER.

THEY'RE NOT WAVING THE

MEXICAN FLAG.

THEY'RE WAVING THE AMERICAN

FLAG.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

THE BUSES TURNED BACK AND

HEADED SOUTH.ç

THISç IS A VICTORY FOR

MURIETTA.

IF THEY GO ANYWHERE ELSE,

STOP THEM BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT IS RIGHT.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS.

MORE PROBLEMS FOR

OBAMACARE, AND THEY COULD

POTENTIALLY JEOPARDIZE

PEOPLE UNDER THE NEW HEALTH

CARE LAW.

THERE ARE STILL PROBLEMS

WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION

FOR MANY PEOPLE WHO SIGNEDP

FOSIGNED UP FOR INSURANCE.

THE INSPECTOR FOUNDç DETAILSç

SUBMITTED BY MANY PEOPLE,

LIKE ANNUAL INCOME AND

CITIZENSHIP, DON'T MATCH THE

RECORDS THE GOVERNMENT HAS

ON FILE.

THE ISSUE COULD TURN INTO

ANOTHER OBAMACARE POLITICAL

HEADACHE FOR THE WHITE

HOUSE.

THE UNITED STATES IS OUT OF

THE WORLD CUP AFTER A

HEARTBREAKING EXTRA TIME TWO

TO ONE LOSS AGAINST

BELGIUM.

WHILE MOST OF THE ATTENTION

HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON THE

MATCHES ON THE FIELD,

CHURCHES AND MINISTRIES HAVE

BEEN WORKING TO SPREAD THE

GOSPELç TO PEOPLEç WHO CAME TO

SEE THE SOCCER

CHAMPIONSHIPS.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE

STORY.

George: THIS IS ANOTHER

GAMEx DAY HERE IN BRAZIL.

THOUSANDS OF FANS HAVE COME

FROM EVERYWHERE TO SUPPORT

THEIR TEAM.

THE GOVERNMENT SAYS THERE

ARE 600,000 TOURISTS

VISITING BRAZIL THIS MONTH.

MANY COMES FROM MUSLIM

COUNTRIES, LIKE ALGERIA AND

IRAN,çç WHERE THEY MAY NEVER

HEARD ABOUT JESUS.

IT IS A JUN A UNIQUE

OPPORTUNITY TO HELP THEM

HEAR THE GOSPEL MESSAGE.

SO THEY HAVE SENT

EVANGELISTS TO PARTS OF THE

CITY TO SHARE THE GOOD NEWS

OF SALVATION.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE

WORD OF GOD COMPLETELY

TRANSFORMS THE LIFE AND

HISTORY OF A PERSON, AND

THAT'S WHY THE BIBLE SOCIETY

OF BRAZILçç PREPARED SPECIAL

LITERATURE FOR THIS WORLD

CUP PERIOD.

THEY PREPARED 100,000 COPIES

OF THE BIBLE, WITH COVERS

FOR EACH HOST CITY OF THE

WORLD CUP.

George: YOUNG PEOPLE

ARE LEADING THE EFFORT TO

TAKE THIS FESTIVAL VA OF

EVANGELISM TO THE STREETS OF

BRAZIL.

THEIR JOY AND ENTHUSIASM

ATTRACTS THE VISITING FANS.

Through Translator:

THIS MAN LOST HIS WIFE IN A

FIRE AND BECAME BLIND.ç

HEç STOPPED AND TALKED WITH

ME FOR A HALF HOUR.

I TOLD HIM ABOUT JESUS, AND

SUDDENLY HE SAID, NOW I

UNDERSTAND THE WAY TO THE

TRUTH.

AND AT THAT MOMENT HE GAVE

HIS LIFE TO JESUS.

George: YOUTH WITH A

MISSION IS HELPING TO

COORDINATE EVANGELISM, AND

SAYS IF CHURCHES AND

MINISTRIES CARRY OUT ALL OF

THEIR PLANS IN THE 12 HOST

CITIES, OVER A MILLION AND A

HALF PEOPLE COULD BECOME

FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST DURING

THIáZUJ

HAVE A POPULATION FROM ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

THEY'RE COMING.

THEY'RE GETTING TO KNOW OUR

NATION.

BRAZIL IS AS BIG AS A

CONTINENT.

SO IN THOSE CITIES, IN ALL

OF THEM WE HAVE GREAT

NEEDS.

AND HA THEY ARE ALL

INVOLVED.

THAT HELPS THE UNITY OF THE

CHURCH TO WORK FOR THE

KINGDOM.

George: THE GOALSçç FOR

BRAZILIAN CHRISTIANS FOR

THIS WORLD CUP IS

SALVATION.

THEY KNOW THEIR CELEBRATION

HERE WILL BE ECHOED IN

HEAVEN.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

THOSE ARE TODAY'S TOP

STORIES FROM CBN NEWS.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK RIGHT AFTER THIS.

ççççççççççç

Gordon: STATISTICS SHOW

THAT NEARLY 10 PEOPLE DROWN

EVERY DAY IN THE UNITED

STATES.

DROWNING IS ALSO ONE Jx THEç

LEADING CAUSES OF ACCIDENTAL

DEATHS AMONG CHILDREN.

AND WHEN COLIN JONES WAS

JUST FOUR YEARS OLD, HE

ALMOST BECAME ONE OF THOSE

STATISTICS.

TODAY HE IS AN OLYMPIC

SWIMMER.

AS EPHRAIM GRAHAM REPORTS,

HE IS ALSO ON A MISSION TO

SAVE LIVES.

Reporter: AT 6' 5,"

COLIN JONES' SPEED AND SKILL

IN THE SWIMMING POOL éEç TO

TWO GOLD AND TWO SILVER

OLYMPIC MEDALS.

HE IS ALSO ONLY THE SECOND

AFRICAN-AMERICAN IN HIGH

HISTORY TO TAKE GOLD IN

SWIMMING.

I HAD A LOT OF SUCCESS IN

LONDON.

MY LIFE HAS CHANGED A LOT.

A LOT MORE RED CARPETS,

AIRLINE FOOD, AND HOTELS.

IT HAS BEEN FUN, THOUGH.

I ENJOY IT.

Reporter: SWIMMING

HELPED MAKE JONES A

CELEBRITY AND A BIT OF A

FASHION ICON.

MY DAD WASç BIG INTOç WHEN

YOU WALK OUT OF THE HOUSE,

YOU REPRESENT THE JONES'

FAMILY.

IT ALWAYS STUCK WITH ME.

I'M VERY INTO FASHION.

AT FIRST I THOUGHT I WANTED

TO WRITE FOR G.Q., AND I

STILL THINK IT IS SOMETHING

I WOULD LOVE TO DO.

BUT I KIND OF EVOLVED THAT

INTO WANTING TO START MY OWN

LINE.

Reporter: STILL, MORE

IMPORTANT THAN HIS PASSION

AND FAME, SWIMMING HIS GIVENç

JO

WE NEED TO HIGHLIGHT THE

SPORT OF SWIMMING FROM JUST

BEING A SPORT TO A LIFE

SKILL.

IT IS JUST RIDING A BIKE.

ONCE YOU LEARN, YOU NEVER

FORGET.

Reporter: COLIN NEARLY

DROWNED AT AGE FIVE

WHILEVITYING WHILE

VISITING A PENNSYLVANIA

WATER PARK WITH HIS

PARENTS.

HIS FLOAT TURNED OVER AND

SENT HIM PLUNGINGç UNDERç THE

WATER IN ABOUT 30 SECONDS.

A CHILD CAN DROWN IN AS

LITTLE AS 20 SECOND.

I LITERALLY REMEMBER WHAT

IT FEELS LIKE.

I'VE GONE TO THAT PLACE A

COUPLE OF TIMES IN PRACTICE,

WHERE I HAD TO HOLD MY

BREATH REALLY, REALLY LONG.

AND LOOKING UP AND SAYING,

THAT MAY BE TOO FAR FOR ME

TO GET THE AIR.

I WAS APPREHENSIVE TO GET

BACK IN THE WATER.

IT TOOKçç MY MOM COACHING ME

AND TALKING TO DIFFERENT

COACHES, AND I WENT THROUGH

THREE PEOPLE UNTIL I

ACTUALLY FELT COMFORTABLE

ENOUGH TO PUT MY FACE IN THE

WATER.

Reporter: THE OLYMPIAN

NOW FEELS MORE AT HOME IN

THE WATER THAN OUT.

WHEN HE IS NOT SWIMMING, HE

TRAVELS WITH THE U.S.A.

SWIMMING FOUNDATION.

THEIR "MAKE A SPLASH" TOUR

HELPS CHILDREN GET

COMFORTABLEIN THEç WATER AND

BEAT THE ALARMING STATISTICS

THAT COLIN RATTLES OFF TO ME

WITHOUT THINKING.

60% OF LATIN-AMERICANS

DON'T KNOW HOW TO SWIM.

NEARLY 70% OF

AFRICAN-AMERICANS DON'T KNOW

HOW TO SWIM.

Reporter: THAT 70% PUTS

AFRICAN-AMERICANS AT THE

HIGHEST RISK OF DROWNING.

MANY AVOID THE WATER BECAUSE

THEY FEELç FEAR,ç HAVING

PARENTS WHO DON'T NOW HOW TO

SWIM, AND EVEN PHYSICAL

APPEARANCE.

WHEN IT COMES TO

AFRICAN-AMERICAN LADIES AND

THEIR HAIR, I GET IT.

MOM SPENDS MONEY ON THEIR

HAIR.

AND THEY WANT ME TO SPEAK ON

IT BECAUSE IT IS AN ISSUE.

WHEN I MAKE A WATER-PROOF

CAP, BESIDES BEING A

MULTI-MILLIONAIRE, I'LL LET

EVERYONE KNOW.

Reporter: UNTILç THEN,ç

JONES SHARES HIS STORIES OF

SURVIVAL, ALONG WITH STORIES

OF PAIN AND LOSS.

LIKE THAT OF ONE TOLITA

MOM.

WHEN I HEAR HER STORY, I

CRY.

Reporter: WANDA'S

16-YEAR-OLD SON, JOSH,

DROWNED, DURING A RAFTING

TRIP WITH FRIENDSçç IN A

MICHIGAN LAKE.

HE WAS ON A RAFT, AND

SOMEHOW HE GOT IN TROUBLE.

MY DAD SAW ONE OF HIS

RELATIVES DROWN WHEN HE WAS

A YOUNGSTER.

IT GAVE HIM A TREMENDOUS

FEAR OF DROWNING.

HE INSTILLED THAT IN ME.

AND I GAVE IT TO MY SON.

Reporter: A SIGN NOW

STANDS AT THAT LAKE BOTH AS

A WARNING ANDç Aç REMINDER OF

JOSH'S DROWNING.

I DIDN'T KNOW JOSH SHOULD

KNOW HOW TO SWIM, BUT I KNOW

SWIMMING IS A LIFE SKILL.

Reporter: A YEAR AFTER

THE TRAGEDY, WANDA STARTED A

PROGRAM TO TEACH CHILDREN TO

SWIM.

IT IS CALLED "THE JOSH

PROJECT."

THOUSANDS OF KIDS NOW SWIM

THANKS TO THE PROGRAM.

AND ONE OF THE JOSH

PROJECT'S BIGGEST

SUPPORTERS, COLIN JONES.

NO MATTER WHAT, IF YOU'RE

BLESSED, YOUç HAVEç TO GIVE

BACK.

FOR ME, MY WAY TO GIVE

BACK -- WHEN I WON THE GOLD

MEDAL, I THOUGHT, YOU KNOW

WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR THE

SPORT OF SWIMMING?

YOU KNOW HOW CAN YOU GIVE

BACK.

AND WORKING WITH THE

INITIATIVE IS MY WAY OF

GIVING BACK AND GETTING MY

PASTOR OFF MY BACK

(laughing).

Reporter: THOUGH HE

JOKES ABOUT HIS PASTOR,!f5 E-COLIN PRAISESç ALL

OF HIS

WORK, AND HONORS HIS FAITH

THAT SUSTAINED HIM WHEN HE

WAS A CHILD.

A MONTH LATER, I FOUND

OUT MY MOM HAD CANCER.

I BELIEVE IT HELPS ME SO

MUCH BEING IN CHURCH EVERY

SUNDAY, AND HEARING FROM MY

PASTOR.

Reporter: THAT COMFORT

GAVE YOUNG COLIN COURAGE TO

SHARE HIS FAITH WITH HIS

HERO, HIS FATHER.

MY MOM SAID I BLEW MY DAD

OUT OF THE WATER.

I WAS 12 YEARS OLD, AND Iç

SAID,ç I'M NOT WORRIED ABOUT

SEEING MOM AFTER SHE PASSES

AWAY.

I'M NOT WORRIED ABOUT HER.

I'LL SEE HER.

BUT, DAD, I'M WORRIED ABOUT

YOUR SOUL BECAUSE YOU DON'T

GO TO CHURCH AND YOUR SOUL

IS DISCONNECTED FROM

CHURCH.

THAT NEXT SUNDAY, HE NEVER

MISSED A DAY IN CHURCH.

Reporter: MOM BEAT

CANCER TWICE, AND DAD DIED

OF LUNG CANCER WHEN COLIN

WASçç JUST 16.

RONALD JONES WORE THE NUMBER

41 WHEN HE PLAYED

BASKETBALL.

COLIN WEARS HIS NUMBER AND A

CROSS.

HE PUSHED ME BECAUSE HE

WAS AN ATHLETE HIMSELF.

Reporter: CBN NEWS,

NORTH CAROLINA.

Gordon: JOIN IN THAT

PROJECT.

IT IS A LIFE SKILL FOR ALL

OF US TO BE ABLE TO LEARN

HOW TO SWIM,çç

I KNOW FOR MY CHILDREN, I

MADE SURE WHEN THEY WERE

STILL TODDLERS, LITERALLY

WHEN THEY BEGAN TO WALK, I

WANTED TO MAKE SURE THEY

WERE ABLE TO SWIM AS WELL.

TERRY, WHAT ABOUT YOU?

Terry: THE SAME THING.

IT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS

FOR ME, ANYWAY, IT WAS A

RELEASE OF ANXIETY TO

KNOW --

Gordon: YOU DIDN'T HAVE

TO WORRY ANYMORE.

Terry: IT'S LIKE

DRIVING Aç CAR.ö

AND YOU GO, OKAY, WE'VE GOT

THAT ONE.

I'M A STRONG BELIEVER.

AND A CHILD ENJOYS WATER.

AND YOU REALLY DON'T ENJOY

THE PLAY THAT IS AVAILABLE

IN IT IF YOU'RE WORRIED

ABOUT DROWNING.

AND THAT'S A LEGITIMATE

WORRY.

A LEGITIMATE CONCERN.

WELL, UP NEXT, A SURVIVOR OF

SEX TRAFFICKING TELLS HER

SHOCKING STORY.

I'VE BEEN TO EVERY STATE

IN THE WEST ANDç HAWAII.ç

AS A TEENAGER, THERE WAS A

GROUP OF US THEY WOULD TAKE

ON CIRCUIT.

THE INDUSTRY IS VERY,

VERY ORGANIZED.

Terry: HEAR HOW THIS

WOMAN ESCAPED AND WHAT SHE

IS NOW DOING TO HELP

TRAFFICKED WOMEN ALL OVER

THE WORLD.

çççççççç

çççç

Terry: WELL, IT DIDN'T

TAKE LONG.

WITHIN 48 HOURS OF RUNNING

AWAY, 15-YEAR-OLD TAWANçç

McCARTY MET HER FIRST

PIMP.

BUT 10 YEARS OF BEING SEX

TRAFFICKED FOLLOWED.

BUT HER STORY DOESN'T END

HERE.

FINALLY SHE FOUND THE WAY

OUT.

Reporter: WHEN TAWAN

WAS ONLY THREE MONTHS OLD,

HER FATHER WAS SENT TO

PRISON.

FOR ME THAT MEANT THAT

LOVE MEANT PAIN REALLY EARLY

ON.

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND IF HE

LOVED ME AND WANTED ME, WHY

HE WENT AWAY.çç

Reporter: TAWAN'S VIEW

OF GOD BROUGHT NO COMFORT.

GOD WAS SO FAR AWAY.

I SAW MY FATHER NOT

EMOTIONALLY THERE AND/OR

PHYSICALLY THERE.

AND I SAW MY HEAVENLY

FATHER, HE WASN'T, EITHER.

Reporter: WHEN TAWAN

WAS 12 YEARS OLD, A FAMILY

FRIEND SEXUALLY ABUSED HER.

DURING THE NEXT TWO YEARS,

SHE RAN AWAY REPEATEDLY AND

CARE AND GROUP HOMES.

I DON'T THINK I WAS

RUNNING FROM SOMETHING.

I THINK I WAS RUNNING TO

FIND SOMETHING.

I THINK THERE WAS SO MUCH

MISSING IN MY LIFE THAT

THERE WAS A HOLE, AND I

DIDN'T HAVE ANY CLUE WHAT

THE HOLE WAS.

Reporter: AT THE AGE OF

15, TAWAN RAN AWAY FOR

GOOD.

WITHIN THE FIRST 48

HOURS -- I DIDN'T PINPOINT

THE EXACT TIME -- IS WHEN I

MET MY FIRST PIMP.

HE APPROACHED ME,çç AND I HAD

TO TAKE CARE OF MYSELF, I

NEEDED TO EAT, AND HE WAS

REALLY, REALLY NICE AND A

VERY ATTRACTIVE MAN.

AND HE SAID, I'LL TEACH YOU

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF

YOURSELF.

HE ACTUALLY HAD FOUR GIRLS

WITH HIM THEN.

Reporter: WITHIN THE

FIRST TWO-WEEK, TAWAN'S PIMP

SHOWED HER HOW TO SELL

COCAINE.

BUT IN A SHORT TIME, THE

DEMANDS INCREASED.

AND THEN THERE WAS THE

DANCELY.çç

DANCING.

AND THERE WAS THE NIGHT I

HAD TO GO TO THE TRUCK STOP,

AND I HAD TO COME BACK WITH

SO MUCH MONEY.

SO I HAD TO DO WHAT I HAD TO

DO TO MAKE THE MONEY IF I

WANTED TO GO HOME.

Reporter: TAWAN

EVENTUALLY BECAME ADDICTED

TO THEç DRUGSç SUPPLIED BY HER

PIMP.

I STARTED BRAINWASHING

MYSELF TO COPE.

AND I STARTED REINFORCING

WHAT THEY WERE TELLING ME

AND THAT I WAS JUST A DOPE

FIEND AND A WHORE AND A

PROSTITUTE, AND NOTHING ELSE

MATTERED.

I NEVER LOOKED INTO MY

EYES.

I JUST MADE SURE I LOOKED

P@YRICALLYç THE WAY I WAS

SUPPOSED TO.

Reporter: HER PIMLY

THEPIMP THEN BEGAN PIMPING

HER ALL OVER THE STATE.

I'VE BEEN TO EVERY STATE

IN A TRUCK.

AS A TEENAGER, THERE WAS A

GROUP OF US THEY WOULD TAKE

ON CIRCUIT.

WE WENT ALABAMA, NASHVILLE,

AND I WENT GOING TO THE

KENTUCKY DERBY, BUT I NEVER

WENT INTO THE DERBY.

I REMEMBER A áBLE OFç PIMPS

SITTING DOWN AND TALKING

ABOUT THE OLYMPICS, AND

TRAFFICKING AND PIMPING

PROSTITUTES, AND THE WHOLE

INDUSTRY IS VERY, VERY

ORGANIZED.

Reporter: OVER THE NEXT

10 YEARS, THE VIOLENCE OF

THE MEN SHE ENCOUNTERED LEFT

HER WITH EMOTIONAL AND

PHYSICAL SCARS.

MY THROAT HAS BEEN CUT.

GUNS PLACED TO MY HEAD, AND

THE TRIGGERç PULLED.ç

AND I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW

MANY TIMES I'VE BEEN RAPED.

AND I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT

THE PAID RAPES, I'M TALKING

ABOUT BRUTAL RAPES THAT YOU

DON'T KNOW IF YOU'LL LIVE

THROUGH OR NOT.

I HAVE NO CLUE.

Reporter: WHEN SHE WAS

ARRESTED AT THE AGE OF 26,

TAWAN FINALLY SAW A WAY

OUT.

AFTER PRISON, SHE WENT TO A

12-STEP PROGRAM.

SHE EVENTUALLY WENT ON TO

EARN Açç BACHELOR'S DEGREE AND

TO MASTERS' DEGREES.

EVERYTHING HAD TO BE

PERFECT TO PROVE THAT I

WASN'T THE DOPE FIEND AND

THE WHORE AND THE

PROSTITUTE.

BUT THERE WAS STILL

SOMETHING MISSING.

Reporter: IN 2009 SHE

DISCOVERED THE BIRMINGHAM

DREAM CENTER.

CURIOSITY LED HER INSIDE TO

ASK ABOUT THE PROGRAMS.

THERE WAS THIS BEAUTIFUL

WOMAN BEHIND THE DESK.

AND I SAID, WHAT DOç YOUç ALL

DO HERE?

AND SHE STARTED TELLING ME

ABOUT BIBLE STUDIES.

AND I STARTED GAGGING, AND

THE LAST THING SHE SAID, OH,

AND I'M ALSO TRYING TO REACH

OUT TO THE PROSTITUTES IN

THE AREA.

AND THIS WHOLE THING WENT

OFF INSIDE OF ME.

AND SHE TOLD ME WHAT THEY'RE

DOING, AND I SAID, HONEY,

IT'S ALL WRONG.

YOU'RE GOING TO GET HURT.

YOU CAN'T DO IT THAT WAY.

AND SHE SAID, WHAT DO YOU

MEAN?

DO YOU KNOW HOW TO DO IT.çç

AND SHE SAYS HOLD ON A

MINUTE, AND SHE GETS A NOTE

PAD AND SHE'S TAKING NOTES.

AND TWO HOURS LATER, SHE

LOOKED AT ME AND SAID, HOW

DO YOU KNOW ALL OF THIS

STUFF?

AND BEFORE I COULD STOP

MYSELF, I POINTED OUT THE

WINDOW AND SAID, I USED TO

WALK THE SAME STREET.

Reporter: AND TAWAN

STARTED HELPING.

WHAT SHE DID DURINGçç THAT

TIME WAS SHE SET AN

EXAMPLE.

AND SHE SHOWED ME WHAT A

CHRISTIAN WOMAN LOOKED LIKE

AND WALKED LIKE AND LOVED

LIKE.

SHE SHOWED ME UNCONDITIONAL

LOVE.

I SAW WHAT JESUS REALLY

LOOKED LIKE BECAUSE OF HER.

ONE DAY SHE COMES TO ME, AND

THIS LADY IS IN THERE, AND I

REMEMBER I PRAYED.

AND ALL I PRAYED WAS, LORD,

HELP ME HELP HER.

AND I MET JESUS.çç

AT THAT MOMENT I MET JESUS,

TRYING TO HELP THAT GIRL.

I DIDN'T MEET THAT MAN THEY

WERE TALKING ABOUT WHEN I

WAS LITTLE.

THE HELL, FIRE, AND BRIM

STONE.

I MET JESUS CHRIST, THE SON

OF GOD.

THE ONE WHO LOVES US.çç

REGARDLESS OF ANYTHING.

Reporter: TAWAN SAYS

HER LIFE WAS COMPLETELY

TRANSFORMED AFTER HER

PRAYER.

I SEE A PICTURE OF ME,

AND I GO, WHO IS THAT GIRL?

THERE IS A COMPLETE

TRANSFORMATION IN THE LOVE

HE SHOWS ME THROUGH OTHERS,

AND THE LOVE HE GIVES ME

EVERY DAY.

HE'S A DADDY.

HE'S NOTçç JUST A FATHER; HE'S

A DADDY.

Reporter: TODAY TAWAN

IS USING HER PAST TO BRING

HOPE TO THE FUTURE OF

OTHERS.

SHE RUNS A CHRISTIAN HOME

FOR GIRLS TRAPPED IN THE SEX

INDUSTRY CALLED "THE WELL

HOUSE."

TO DATE, THE "WELL HOUSE"

HAS RESCUED OVER 100 WOMEN

AND SHE CONTINUES TO SHARE

HER MESSAGE WITH TRAFFICKED

GIRLS ALL OVER THE GLOBE.

ç I AMç YOU.

I HAVE BEEN THERE.

I KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND

WHAT'S GOING ON INSIDE OF

YOU.

GOD HEALS AND HE REDEEMS AND

HE RESTORES.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE, AND YOU

ARE NOT UNLOVED.

Terry: GOD RESCUES, HE

REDEEMS, AND HE RESTORES.

THAT'S THE GOSPEL MESSAGES

RIGHT THERe.çç

IF YOU THINK THAT YOU HAVE

MET GOD AND YOU SEE HIM AS

JUST A HELL, FIRE, AND BRIM

STONE, BEING OUT TO JUDGE

YOU AND GET YOU, YOU HAVE

NOT KNOWN HIM.

YOU CAN SEE IN HER, IN HER

COUNTENANCE, YOU CAN HEAR IT

IN HER VOICE, WHEN SHE

REALLY MET JESUS SHE WAS

GENUINELY TRANSFORMED AND

CHANGED.

HIS PRESENCEç DOES THATç TO

ALL OF US.

AND HE IS NOT A JUDGE OF

WHERE YOU'VE BEEN OR WHAT

YOU'VE DONE.

HE LOVES YOU.

HE LOVES YOU RIGHT IN THE

MESS YOU'VE GOTTEN YOURSELF

INTO.

LOVES YOU SO MUCH THAT HE

WAITS FOR YOU.

HE IS THERE RIGHT NOW WITH

YOU.

WHY?

WHY DOES HE DO THAT?

BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU WITH AN

EVERLASTING LOVE.

YOU KNOW, IF YOU'VE BEEN

ABUSED IN YOUR LIFE,

SOMETIMES IT ISçç A HARD

MESSAGE TO RECEIVE.

ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE BEING

TOLD THAT IT IS COMING TO

YOU FROM SOMEONE YOU DON'T

EVEN KNOW.

BUT YOU CAN KNOW HIM.

THAT'S WHAT HE WAITS FOR.

HE WAITS TO BE KNOWN.

HE ALREADY KNOWS YOU.

HE KNOWS, JUST LIKE TAWAN

SAID SHE KNEW THOSE WOMEN AS

SHE MINISTERS TO THEM.

SHE KNOWS WHAT THEY THINK

BECAUSE SHE'S BEENç THERE.ç

AND OUR SAVIOR HAS BEEN

THERE, TOO.

THAT'S THE MESSAGE OF THE

CROSS, BECAUSE WE NEEDED

SAVING, WE NEEDED

TRANSFORMATION.

AND HE BECAME YOUR SIN AND

MINE, TOOK IT UPON HIMSELF,

DIED ON THE CROSS,

SURRENDERING EVERYTHING HE

WAS AND EVERYTHING HE HAD,

SO YOU AND I COULD BE SET

FREE.

AND THAT'S WHAT HE IS

WAITING FOR IN YOUR HEART

AND LIFE TODAY.

THEç QUESTIONç IS, WHAT WILL

YOU DO WITH THAT?

WILL YOU SAY YES WITH HIM

TODAY?

WILL YOU TRUST HIM?

EVEN THOUGH THERE HAVE BEEN

PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE THAT

HAVE BETRAYED YOU?

TODAY IS THE DAY YOU CAN

HAVE TRANSFORMATION AND A

NEW BEGINNING.

SURRENDER YOUR LIFE TO HIM.

HOW DOES THAT WORK?

IT STARTç WORKSç WITH JUST

STARTING.

HE'LL GIVE YOU WHAT YOU NEED

TO WALK WITH HIM.

IT IS SCARY TO SURRENDER

WHEN YOU'VE BEEN ABUSED.

BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF

THAT SURRENDER IS FREEDOM,

AND YOU CAN HAVE THAT

TODAY.

THERE IS NO SIN THAT IS

STRONGER THAN HIS ABILITY TO

SET YOU FREE.

NOT ONE.

NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES

YOU'VE COMMITTED IT, NO

MATTER THE LIFESTYLE YOU'VE

LED.

NO MATTER WHAT YOU'VE POURED

INTO THAT LIFE OF SIN, HE

&Lç REDEEM YOU TODAY AND

GIVE YOU A NEW BEGINNING IF

YOU'LL LET HIM.

SO PRAY WITH ME.

PRAY WITH ME AND JUST MEANS

THIS IN YOUR HEART.

DON'T PRAY TO ME.

PRAY TO HIM.

LET'S PRAY TOGETHER.

JUST SAY, LORD JESUS, I AM A

SINNER IN NEED OF A SAVIOR.

I KNOWLEDGE THA ACKNOWLEDGE

THAT I HAVE SINFEEç AGAINST

YOU, NOT ONCE, NOT TWICE,

BUT MANY, MANY TIMES, LORD.

I AM GIVING YOU WHAT IS LEFT

OF MY LIFE.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY YOU

WANT IT OR WHY YOU'VE

WAITED, BUT I NEED YOU.

I WANT YOU.

SO, JESUS, BE THE SAVIOR OF

MY SOUL.

I'M SO SORRY FOR THE THINGS

I'VE DONE THAT HAVE HURT

YOU.

I'M ASKING YOU TO BE THE

LORD OF MY LIFE.

COME INTO THE CENTER OF MY

BEING.

WILL YOU TEACH MEç TOç THINK

YOUR THOUGHTS, HELP ME TO

SEE THINGS THROUGH YOUR

EYES?

GIVE MY HEART UNDERSTANDING

TO RECEIVE YOUR WORD AS I

READ IT, TO UNDERSTAND YOUR

LOVE, AND THEN TO BE ABLE TO

SHARE IT WITH OTHERS.

OH, GOD, CHANGE MY LIFE.

I'M ASKING YOU FOR A NEW

BEGINNING TODAY.

THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME.

THANK YOU FOR WAITING FOR

ME.

THANK YOU THAT YOUR POWER IS

ABLE TO DELIVER ME FROM

EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE THAT

IS NOTç OF Yády

I GIVE IT ALL TO YOU NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE JUST PRAYED THAT

PRAYER, THEN YOU HAVE BEGUN

AN EXCITING JOURNEY.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS

ABOUT TO HAPPEN TO YOU.

GOD, AS HE CONTINUES TO MAKE

HIMSELF REAL TO YOU IS GOING

TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

WE WOULD LIKE TO HELP YOU

MOVE CLOSER TO THE LORD, AND

SO WE PUT TOGETHER Açç PACKET

FOR YOU CALLED "A NEW DAY."

THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE, A NEW

DAY, A NEW LIFE, A NEW

BEGINNING.

IT IS FILLED WITH

INFORMATION FROM GOD.

HOW DOES ONE MOVE FORWARD?

THIS IS FREER AND SO IS THE

PHONE CALL TO GET IT.

IT IS ON YOUR SCREEN,

1-800-759-0700.

CALL AND SAY, I PRAYED THAT

PRAYER AND I'D LIKE THE "NEW

DAY" PACKET, AND WE'LL GET

IT OUT TO YOU RIGHT AWAY.

BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW -- I

COULDN'T STOP.

DIAGNOSED WITH M.S.

Gordon: TODAY THE

AVERAGE COST OF RAISING A

CHILD IN AMERICA IS MORE

AND THAT'S AN INVESTMENT

BURT AND NATALIA ARE READY

TO MAKE, THANKS TO A

DECISION THEY MADE EARLY IN

THEIR MARRIAGE.

Reporter: BURT AND

NATALIA CAN HARDLY WAIT

UNTIL THE DAY WHEN THEY

BRING THEIR FIRST CHILD

HOME.

A NEW BABY ISN'T THE ONLY

THING THEY'RE EXCITED

ABOUT.

OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS,

BURT'S REAL ESTATE BUSINESS

HAS BEEN STEADILY GROWING.ç

>, MY AVERAGE SALE HAS

INCREASED MORE THAN THREE

TIMES.

THAT MEANS THE AVERAGE

COMMISSION HAS INCREASED

PROPORTIONATELY AS WELL.

Reporter: THEY SAY IT

IS BECAUSE THEY DISCOVERED

THE SECRET TO FINANCIAL

SUCCESS.

WE HAVE JUST SEEN

PHENOMENAL THINGS HAPPEN AS

A RESULT OF TITHING.

AND NOW AS SOON AS THE CHECK

ALWAYS THE CASE.

BURT WAS TRYING TO BUILD UP

HIS REAL ESTATE BUSINESS

WHEN THE BOTTOM FELL OUT OF

THE HOUSING MARKET.

THERE WASN'T ENOUGH MONEY

COMING IN.

WE HAD TO MOVE OUT OF OUR

HOUSE AND MOVE INTO AN

APARTMENT.

AND WE HAD TO LEASE OUR

HOUSE TO GET BY IN THE

FINANCIAL CRISIS.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

THE COUPLE HAD DOWNSIZED,

THEY STILL STRUGGLED TO MAKE

ENDS MEET.

IT WAS HARD.

INSTEAD OF BEINGç BUSY ANDç

PUTTING PEOPLE IN MY CAR AND

SHOWING THEM HOMES, I DIDN'T

HAVE MUCH TO DO.

WE WERE AT THE WORST POINT

FINANCIALLY, EMOTIONALLY,

SITTING HOME IN THE

APARTMENT WATCHING MOVIES ON

NETFLIX.

AND NATALIA SAYS, I BELIEVE

WE SHOULD START TITHING.

Reporter: THEY HAD

HEARD ABOUT TITHING THROUGH

BIBLI

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

WE DIDN'T FEEL THAT 10%

WAS GOING TO MAKE ANYTHING

WORSE.

Reporter: AND EVEN IN A

DEPRESSED MARKET, BURT'S

REAL ESTATE BUSINESS STARTED

PICKING UP AND JUST STARTED

GETTING BETTER.

2009'S INCOME WAS BETTER

THAN 2008.

WE CONTINUED TITHELY 10%

RIGHT OFF THE GROSS.

2010'S INCOME WAS MORE THAN

2009'S.çç

2011'S WAS HIGHER THAN 2012,

AND 2013 DOUBLED 2012'S.

Reporter: DURING THAT

TIME, THEY CONTINUED TITHING

TO THEIR CHURCH.

AND THEY ALSO STARTED GIVING

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

WHERE WE PUT OUR MONEY IS

WHERE I HEART IS.

THAT WAS A TURNING POINT.

BUT WATCHING CBN HAS

INCREASEDç US SOç MUCH BECAUSE

WE SAW WHAT THAT MINISTRY

DOES.

Reporter: BURT AND

NATALIA SAYS THEIR FINANCES

HAVE NEVER BEEN BETTER.

AND THEY JUST MOVED INTO A

NEW HOME, JUST IN TIME TO

GET THE BABY ROOM READY.

THEY SAY IT IS BECAUSE OF

THEIR GIVING AND GOD'S

FAITHFULNESS.

NOW TODAY WHEN WE TITHE,

IT IS NOT BLIND FAITH.

WE HAVE EXPERIENCE.

WE HAVE A TRACK RECORD WITH

HIM PROVIDING.

WHEN YOU TRUST GODç WITH THATç

MONEY, YOU'RE GOING TO END

UP TRUSTING HIM WITH EVERY

ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE.

AND IT WILL BE THE BEST

DECISION YOU CAN MAKE.

Gordon: TAKE THEIR

CHALLENGE AND TEST GOD,

PROVE HIM.

IT IS THE ONLY TIME WE GET

TO DO IT, IS IN OUR TITHES

AND OUR OFFERINGS.

AND WHEN YOU DO IT, AND YOU

DO IT CONSISTENTLY, THAT'S

WHEN THE BLESSING COMES.ç

THEç ZINZER'S ARE SAYING,

THIS IS NOT BLIND FAITH.

WE KNOW THIS WORKS.

AND WE NOW KNOW WE CAN TRUST

GOD NOT JUST WITH MONEY, BUT

WITH EVERYTHING.

JESUS SAID, WHERE YOUR

TREASURE IS, THERE YOUR

HEART WILL BE, ALSO.

IF YOU WANT TO PROVE THAT

YOUR HEART IS WITH HIM,

START GIVING.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO DO THAT,

JUST CALL US.

1-800-759-0700.

AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO

START A LIFETIME OF GIVING.

I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700ç

CLUB."ç

NOW, HOW MUCH IS IT?

WELL, IT IS JUST $20 A

MONTH, 65 CENTS A DAY, AND

YOU JOIN WITH TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, JUST

LIKE THAT WONDERFUL COUPLE,

WHO SAID, WE WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.

WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE.

WE WANT TO PREACH THE GOSPEL

AROUND THE WORLD.

WE WANT TO SEE THE GOSPEL GO

OUT.

WE WANT TO SEE HELP GO OUT.

WE WANT TO SEE ALL OF THESE

THINGS HAPPEN.

IT ALL HAPPENS BECAUSE

PEOPLE LIKE YOU GIVE.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, WE'RE

GOING TO BE PRAYING FOR YOU

AND YOUR NEEDS.

BUT FIRST, THE AMAZING STORY

WHO WAS HEALED OF M.S.,

AFTER THIS.

çççççççççççç

Terry: THERE IS NO

KNOWN CURE FOR MULTIPLE

SCLEROSIS, BUT DON'T TELL

THAT TO SUE WYNN.ç

DOCTORSç WERE OUT OF OPTIONS

TO HELP HER COPE WITH THAT

DISEASE WHEN HER PASTOR HAD

A VISION THAT CHANGED HER

PROGNOSIS COMPLETELY.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THINGS

LOOKED VERY ODD TO ME.

I LOOKED AT MY FINGERS, LIKE

THIS, AND I COULD SEE SOME

FINGERS, AND OTHERS I

COULDN'T.

AM I HAVING A STROKE, OR

WHAT IS THIS?

WHAT'S GOING ON.

Reporter: SUE WYNN WAS

28 YEARS OLD WITH A

PROMISING CAREERç WHENç THE

FIRST SYMPTOMS APPEARED.

AFTER SEVERAL TRIPS TO THE

EMERGENCY ROOM, SHE GOT

DISTURBING NEWS.

THE E.R. DOC SAID, I MUST

TELL YOU YOU HAVE A 50%

CHANCE OF HAVING M.S.

I JUST DISMISSED IT.

I SAID, I DON'T HAVE TIME

FOR THAT.

I FEEL FINE.

Reporter: SHE MOVED ON

WITH HER LIFE AND CAREER,

BUT ONE NIGHT AT HOME WITH

HER HUSBAND, HER SYMPTOMS

ERUPTED.

I WASç SITTINGç AND

WATCHING THE EVENING NEWS

WITH JEFF.

AND JEFF HAS THE TENDENCY TO

LIKE TO JIGGLE HIS FOOT.

AND I SAID, JEFF, STOP

JIGGLING.

AND HE SAID, I'M NOT, BUT

YOU.

AND I WAS GOING LIKE THIS,

AND THEN IT STARTED GOING

LIKE THIS, AND THEN LIKE

THAT.

AND I WAS SCARED TO DEATH

BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

IT WAS, AND I COULDN'T

STOP.

Reporter: HER FAMILY

DOCTOR CONFIRMED HER FEARS.

SHEç SAYS, I THIKç THIS IS

M.S.

MY BREATH JUST WENT OUT OF

ME.

I COULDN'T BREATHE, YOU

KNOW.

HOW COULD THIS BE?

HOW CAN THIS -- MY WHOLE

LIFE IS JUST BEFORE MY EYES,

AND I'M SAYING EVERYTHING IS

GONE.

THERE WAS A COMPLETE

DARKNESS IN OUR LIVES.

A COMPLETE DEPRESSION IN

YOUR LIVES.

Reporter: HER

NEUROLOGIST FOUND LESIONS ON

HER BRAIN ANDç IMMEDIATELYç

STARTED TREATMENT FOR

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

WITHIN A FEW MONTHS, SHE WAS

FORCED TO RETIRE ON

DISABILITY.

IT WAS CONTINUING ON WITH

THIS RELENTLESS ATTACK.

THERE WAS NO HELPFUL BRANCH

TO GRAB ON TO.

I COULDN'T SLOW IT DOWN.

THE TREMORS STARTED IN APRIL

OF 1996.

AND BY AUGUST I NEEDED

FOREARM CRUTCHES TO WAK'

>

Reporter: SUE JOINED AN

M.S. SUPPORT GROUP TO COPE

WITH THE DISEASE.

SHE MADE WITH FRIENDS WITH A

WOMAN WHO INVITED HER AND

JEFF TO CHURCH.

WE WERE VERY SKEPTICAL AT

FIRST.

ME, I WAS NEW AGE, BUDDHISM,

HINDUISM, ALL OF THAT MIXED

TOGETHER.

AND HERE JEFF IS AN ATHEIST,

SO WHAT ARE WE DOING SITTING

IN A PEW.

I WAS AGREEING ONLY

BECAUSEç I FUGHT IT WOULD

DISTRACT HER FROM THE PAIN

AND THE AGONY OF M.S.

BUT THEY WERE SO NICE TO

US.

AND WE JUST DECIDED WE

WANTED TO GO BACK AGAIN.

AND THEN WE WENT BACK EVERY

SUNDAY.

IT STIRRED US.

WE WERE BEING STIRRED.

WE WERE BEING TOUCHED BY

GOD.

I WANTED TO COMMIT MYSELF TO

HIM.

Reporter: THEY MET WITHç

THEç PASTOR TO FIND OUT

MORE.

HE TOOK US THROUGH A

MEMBERSHIP CLASS, AND I

LEARNED ABOUT GRACE.

AND SO WE GOT UP IN FRONT OF

THE WHOLE CHURCH AND SAID,

WE BELIEVE JESUS CHRIST IS

THE SON OF GOD.

IT WAS LIFE-CHANGING,

LIFE-CHANGING.

Reporter: AS SUE GREW

SPIRITUALLY, HER HEALTH WAS

DETERIORATING.

THE DOCTORS WERE OUT OF

OPTIONS, AND OFFERED HER

TO SLOW DOWN THE DISEASE.

I GOT SO SICK.

I JUST SAID TO JEFF, I DON'T

THINK I CAN DO THIS

ANYMORE.

I REALLY WANT TO STOP.

WITHIN JUST A FEW WEEKS OF

STOPPING THE CHEMOTHERAPY,

EVERYTHING WENT DOWNHILL.

THAT WAS SOME VERY

DIFFICULT, DIFFICULT TIMES.

Reporter: ONE SUNDAY

HER PASTORç SHOCKED THEç

CONGREGATION.

HE WAS STANDING IN THE

PULPIT AND HE SAID, I'M

GOING TO STICK MY NECK OUT.

I HAVE HAD A VISION.

AND IN IT, SUE, YOU WERE

HEALED.

AND I DIDN'T BELIEVE IT, BUT

MY FACE LIT UP AND I

SMILED.

HE SAYS, THE FIRST THING WE

NEED TO DO IS GO TO HEBREWS

13: 8.

READ IT OUT LOUD.ç R&C @&Cú

THE MINUTE I SAID, JESUS

CHRIST IS THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER I WAS IMMEDIATELY

CONVICTED THAT I HAD LIMITED

GOD.

AND THIS WORD WAS TELLING

ME, OH, YEAH, HE DOES HEAL.

Reporter: SHE BEGAN

READING HEALINGç SCRIPTURES,!f5 E-AND

WITH EACH VISIT WITH

THEIR PASTOR, SUE'S FAITH

GREW.

I JUST HAD FAITH.

YEAH, YEAH, HE'S GOING TO DO

IT.

I GO TO BED THIS ONE NIGHT,

AND A WAVE OF DOUBT CAME.

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

M.S. IS INCURABLE.

YOU'RE NOT FOOLING

YOURSELF.

AND ON AND ON.

I WAS CRUSHED.

ALL MY FAITH, IT SEEMED,ç

WENT;H)IGHT OUT THE WINDOW,

AND I HEARD IN MY HEART,

YOU'RE SINKING IN A SEA OF

DOUBT.

AND I KNEW IT WAS THE LORD.

I KNEW IT WAS HIS VOICE.

Reporter: SUE WENT

DOWNSTAIRS AND READ HER

BIBLE.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I FELT A

SENSATION THAT I HAD NOT

FELT BEFORE.

I HAD FELT LITTLE, MAYBE

TINY TOUCHES, NOTHING LIKE

THIS.

IT WASç LIKEç OIL WAS BEING

POURED ON MY HEAD FROM THE

INSIDE OUT AND WAS SLOWLY

DEFUSING DOWN THROUGH

EVERYTHING, OUT TO THE

FINGERTIPS, DOWN TO THE

TOES, EVERYTHING.

AND I KNEW THAT AS IT WAS

HAPPENING, IT WAS JESUS AND

HE WAS HEALING ME.

EVERYTHING WRONG WAS SET

RIGHT, JUST RIGHT DOWN

THROUGH MY BODY.

AND I KNEW I WAS HEALED.

I WOKE UP THE NEXT MORNING,

AND I FELTç LIKE Iç HAD BEEN

PLUGGED INTO A SUPER

CHARGER.

I'M, LIKE, THERE IS POWER IN

ME THAT I HAVE NEVER FELT

BEFORE.

THIS IS A WHOLE NEW THING.

OH, MY GOODNESS, WHAT HAS

HAPPENED.

Reporter: AS HER NEXT

VISIT TO THE NEUROLOGIST,

HER DOCTOR CONFIRMED HER

MIRACLE.

HE LOOKED IN MY EYES

FIRST.

AND THERE WAS DAMAGE IN MY

LEFT EYE THAT WAS VISABLE

WITH A SCOPE, AND ITç WAS

AND HE SAID, THIS IS GOD.

HE TESTED MY WHOLE BODY.

HE DID ALL OF THE USUAL

NEUROLOGICAL TESTS, AND

THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE OF ANY

NEUROLOGICAL PROBLEMS.

Reporter: FOR MORE THAN

A DECADE, SUE HAD BEEN FREE

OF M.S.

SHE AND JEFF HAVE STARTED A

MINISTRY, USING HER MIRACLE

TO SHARE JESUS WITH OTHERS.

WHAT I REALLY WANT IS FOR

OTHERS TO KNOW HIM,

INTIMATELY.

I PRAYçç THAT WHEN I SPEAK TO

THEM AND WHEN I GIVE THEM MY

TESTIMONY, IT MAKES THEM

HUNGRY, AND THAT THEY WANT

TO PURSUE GOD.

HE IS JUST ENDLESS.

AND WHAT HE DOES IS

ENDLESS.

AND WITH HIM NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

Terry: I LOVE THIS

STORY BECAUSE IT WASN'T THAT

SHE SOMEHOW DEVELOPED A DEEP

ENOUGH FAITH OR GOT GOOD

ENOUGH OR RAN THROUGH Açç

LITANY OF PRACTICES THAT

SOMEHOW QUALIFIED HER FOR

HEALING.

GOD MET HER RIGHT AT HER

POINT OF NEED.

BUT WHEN SHE FELT DOUBT, SHE

SAID, NO, I'M TRUSTING YOU,

AND SHE DREW CLOSER AND

CLOSER TO GOD.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

THERE ARE MANY OF YOU WHO

HAVE NEEDS AND YOU'RE

SAYING, I WANT THAT.

GOD SEES YOU AND KNOWS YOUR

NEEDS.

HERE IS ANOTHER WONDERFUL

STORY OF GOD'S POWER.

FOR OVER 30çç YEARS, DOUGLAS

WHO LIVED IN MICHIGAN

SUFFERED WITH HEPATITIS

"C."

IN DECEMBER OF 2012, HIS

BLOOD WORK SHOWED EVIDENCE

OF THE DISEASE.

AND THEN LAST JANUARY HE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM.

GORDON, HE HEARD YOU GIVE

THIS WORD OF KNOWLEDGE:

"YOU'VE GOT A BLOOD DISORDER

WHERE YOU'VE GOT A LOW WHITE

BLOOD COUNT.

GOD IS HEALING AND RESTORING

YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM.

JUST RECEIVE IT NOWçç IN

JESUS' NAME."

DOUGLAS CLAIMED HIS HEALING,

AND TWO MONTHS LATER HE WENT

TO HAVE HIS BLOOD RETESTED.

HIS DOCTOR WAS CONFOUNDED

WHEN THE REPORT CAME BACK.

IT VERIFIED THAT HE WAS FREE

FROM HEPATITIS "C."

Gordon: JESUS IS THE

SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

IN ARKANSAS.

IN ARKANSAS, LORI FELL DOWN

A FLIGHT OF STAIRS WAY BACK

IN 1999.çç

THE INJURY CAUSED HER TO

DEVELOP A PROBLEM WIT WITH

HER SCIATIC NERVE.

A FEW MONTHS AGO THE PAIN

BECAME CONSTANT.

AND THEN SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND TERRY,

YOU HAD A WORD.

"YOU'VE GOT A SCIATIC NERVE

PROBLEM.

LATELY IT HAS BEEN MUCH MORE

PREVALENT, AND GOD IS

HEALING THAT CONDITION.

YOU JUST RECEIVE THAT FROM%5ç TODAY."

WELL, LORI CLAIMED THE WORD

FOR HERSELF.

SUDDENLY ALL OF THE PAIN WAS

GONE, AND SHE HASN'T HAD A

PROBLEM SINCE.

GOD WANTS TO WORK MIRACLES.

LISTEN TO WHAT THAT STORY

SAID.

DON'T BE DROWNING IN A SEA

OF DOUBT.

WHEN THE BIBLE ANNOUNCES HE

HEALS ALL OUR DISEASES, GODç&

MEANS IT.

AND WITH HIM, THERE IS NO

SHADOW OF DOUBT.

BUT WHEN THAT IS ANNOUNCED

OVER YOU, GOD HEALS ALL YOUR

DISEASES, WHAT COMES TO

MIND?

IS THERE A DOUBT?

ARE YOU WONDERING, ARE YOU

GOOD ENOUGH?

ARE YOU WONDERING, HAVE YOU

PRAYED ENOUGH?

HAVE YOU BELIEVED ENOUGH?

HAVE YOU DONE THIS?

DO THE DOUBTSçç COME?

OR DO THE ARGUMENTS COME

THAT SOMEHOW YOU HAVE TO

CONVINCE GOD.

WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?

WHAT ABOUT THIS?

ARE YOU ARGUING WITH HIM?

DO YOU THINK YOU HAVE TO

CONVINCE HIM, THAT YOU'RE

GOOD ENOUGH FOR HIM TO TURN

AND DO WHAT HE HAS ALREADY

PROMISED TO DO?

LET ALL OF THOSE DOUBTS JUST

FADE AWAY.

AND LET HIM COME TO YOU.

JESUS IS THE AUTHOR AND THEç!f5"QIT)áj

Q) OF YOUR FAITH.

IT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU

DRUM UP.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT HE

GIVES TO YOU.

AND IT COMES WHEN HIS

PRESENCE OVERWHELMS YOU,

THAT HE IS IN YOU, HE IS ALL

AROUND YOU.

NOW, THE BIBLE SAYS, "IN HIM

WE LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE

OUR BEING."

SO HE IS ALREADY THERE.

ALL WE HAVE TO HAVE IS OUR

EYESçD=A1ñ OUR EARS OPEN,

AND A HEART OF UNDERSTANDING.

AND WHEN WE HAVE THAT, WELL

THEN HE TURNS AND HE HEALS

OUR DISEASE.

JUST BELIEVE.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

PRAY.

JUST BELIEVE.

IF YOU HAVE DOUBTS, START

DOUBTING YOUR DOUBTS.

AND LET'S JUST UNDERSTAND

THAT GOD WANTS TO HEAL YOU

TODAY.

LET'Sç PRAY.ç

LORD, WE JUST COME TO YOU

AND WE ASK FOR YOUR PRESENCE

TO BE MANIFEST.

WE ASK THAT THE LIGHT OF

YOUR PRESENCE WOULD JUST

DAWN ON THEM.

THAT THE SWITCH WOULD TURN

ON AND THE SCALES WOULD FALL

OFF OF THEIR EYES AND THEY

WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE, THEY

WOULD BE ABLE TO HEAR, THEY

WOULD BE ABLE TOç UNDERSTANDç

THE GREATNESS OF YOUR POWER

TOWARDS US WHO BELIEVE.

SO, LORD, RIGHT NOW WE JUST

ASK THAT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO

REACH OUT AND TOUCH AND

UNDERSTAND THE GREATNESS OF

YOUR POWER.

FILL US TO OVERFLOWING.

AND WAçç JOIN IN AGREEMENT AND

WE SAY TO THESE DISEASES

NOW, BE HEALED AND BE MADE

WHOLE.

YOU SPIRITS OF INFIRMITY,

YOU MUST LEAVE NOW.

YOU HAVE NO HOLD HERE.

YOU HAVE NO AUTHORITY.

IN JESUS' NAME, GO NOW.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE GOT

BURNING IN YOUR LUNGS, AND

IT IS RELATED TOç Aç SEVERE

ASTHMA CONDITION.

IT'S VERY DIFFICULT FOR YOU

TO BREATHE.

AND THERE IS CONSTRICTIVE

BREATHING, ALMOST ON A

CONTINUOUS BASIS.

GOD IS RESTORING YOU NOW.

HE HAS FELT THAT GOING TO

YOUR LUNGS.

AND JUST TAKE IN A DEEP

BREATH AND REALIZE THAT YOU

ARE FREE.

IT IS NEVER GOING TO COME

BACK.

YOU'RE SET FREE NOW.

YOU'RE HEALED NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: RHEUMATOID

ARTHRITIS ANDçç OSTEOPOROSIS,

THE PAIN IS GONE.

RISE UP AND WALK STRAIGHT.

Gordon: AMEN.

GIVE US A CALL.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU IF YOU

NEED PRAYER.

1-800-759-0700.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALM: "I WILL

TRUST IN THE DEPTH OF YOUR

WING."

FOR TERRY, FOR ME, FOR ALL

OF US, GOD BLESS YOU AND

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN NEXT

WEEK.
