FROM THE COVER OF

FLEX --

I LIVE THE DREAM.

MEET A BODY BUILDER WHO

COULDN'T RAISE HIS OWN ARM.

IT KEPT GETTING WORSE AND

WORSE.

HEAR WHAT GOT HIM BACK IN

THE GYM.

I BELIEVED IT WOULD BE

HEALED.

*

Pat: WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

HUNDREDS OF ROCKET ATTACKS

ALL OVER ISRAEL, HITTING

INTO TEL AVIV, UP INTO

JERUSALEM, UP BEYOND TEL

AVIV, AND THE ISRAELIS ARE

NOW STEPPING UP THEIR

ATTACKS AGAINST THESE HAMAS

STRONG POINTS.

THEY'RE TRYING TO STOP THOSE

ISLAMIC TERRORISTS FROM

LAUNCHING ROCKETS AGAINST

THEIR COUNTRY.

WELL, THAT COULD MEAN A

LONG, DRAWN-OUT BATTLE IN

THE MIDDLE EAST, AND IT MAY

INVOLVE ISRAELI TROOPS, SO

BOOTS ON THE GROUND, AS THEY

SAY.

HERE IS WENDY.

Wendy: AND ISRAEL COULD

BE GETTING READY TO SEND IN

TROOPS AS WELL.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Reporter: MILLIONS OF

ISRAELI CIVILIANS ARE TAKING

COVER IN BOMB SHELTERS AS

HAMAS CONTINUES ITS ROCKET

AND MISSILE BOMBARDMENT OUT

OF GAZA.

THEY HAVE FIRED OVER 200

ROCKETS INTO ISRAEL SINCE

MONDAY.

A SITUATION THAT ISRAEL'S

AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED

STATES TOLD CBN NEWS IS

INTOLERABLE.

WE HAVE ABOUT

THREE-QUARTERS OF OUR

POPULATION THAT HAVE TO GO

INTO BOMB SHELTERS.

TO PUT THAT INTO AMERICAN

TERMS, YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

OVER 200 MILLION AMERICANS

WHO WOULD HAVE TO GO INTO

BOMB SHELTERS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE WOULD WANT

THEIR GOVERNMENT TO DO, THE

AMERICAN MILITARY TO DO, IF

THEY WERE FACED WITH ROCKET

ATTACKS FROM A NEIGHBORING

TERRITORY WHERE 200 MILLION

PEOPLE ARE RUSH NOOG A BOMB

SHELTER.

Reporter: ISRAEL'S

MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM HAS

REPORTEDLY HAD A SUCCESS

RATE OF ABOUT 90% SO FAR IN

SHOOTING DOWN THE HAMAS

MISSILES.

ISRAEL CONTINUED ITS

CAMPAIGN TO DESTROY HAMAS'

ROCKETS AND THE

INFRASTRUCTURE TO

MANUFACTURE THOSE ROCKETS.

THE I.D. F. REPORTED MORE

THAN 100 MISSILE LAUNCHES

WERE HIT AND A NUMBER OF

HOUSES USED BY HAMAS

LEADERS.

ONE SENIOR SOURCE SAYS NOT A

SINGLE HAMAS COMMANDER HAS A

HOME TO GO BACK TO.

IN GAZA, MORE THAN 50

PALESTINIANS HAVE DIED SO

FAR IN THE CONFLICT.

YET TO AVOID SILVER

CASUALTIES, ISRAEL IMPLIES A

WARNING, AND THEY CALL IT

THE KNOCK ON A DOOR, BY

CALLING CIVILIANS TO LEAVE A

HOME OR AREA BEFORE THEY

STRIKE.

AND HAMAS SOMETIMES CALLS

PEOPLE TO THE HOME AS HUMAN

SHIELDS.

THEY DID THE SAME THING

DURING "OPERATION PILLAR OF

DEFENSE" IN 2012.

ON THE DIPLOMATIC FRONT,

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU CALLED A NUMBER OF

WORLD LEADERS, AND SAID NO

OTHER GOVERNMENT WOULD

TOLERATE THIS KIND OF ROCKET

FIRE.

NETANYAHU AND ISRAEL DEFENSE

MINISTER MOSHA ALON SAID THE

OPERATION WOULD NOT BE OVER

QUICKLY.

MEANWHILE, MORE RESERVISTS

ARE BEING CALLED UP IN

ISRAEL AS IT PREPARES FOR A

POSSIBLE GROUND INVASION.

Pat: THERE HAVE BEEN

200 ROCKETS FIRED INTO

ISRAEL SINCE MONDAY.

I ASKED MYSELF, WHAT IN THE

WORLD ARE THOSE PEOPLE IN

GAZA THINKING.

THEY'RE MILITARILY

OVERWHELMED BY ISRAEL.

WHAT ARE THEY TRYING TO DO?

IT IS LIKE STICKING A STICK

INTO A HORNET'S NEST AND

STANDING THERE AND SEEING IF

THE HORNETS COME TO STING

YOU.

OF COURSE THEY'RE GOING TO

STING YOU.

CHRIS MECH MICCHRIS

MITCHELL IS WITH US FROM TEL

AVIV.

YOU'RE NEAR ONE OF THE IRON

DOMAINS, AND HOW EFFECTIVE

ARE THEY?

Reporter: THEY'RE VERY

EFFECTIVE, PAT.

JUST TODAY THEY HAVE HIT

DOWN FIVE ROCKETS THAT HAVE

COME INTO THIS AREA.

IT IS QUITE AN AMAZING THING

TO SEE.

THE OTHER DAY WE WERE ON THE

BORDER BETWEEN GAZA AND

ISRAEL, AND YOU COULD WATCH

THE ROCKETS COME OUT FROM

GAZA CITY, FIRED BY HAMAS,

AND YOU COULD WATCH THE IRON

DOME ACTUALLY SHOOT THEM

DOWN.

AND SOMETIMES IT IS NOT A

STRAIGHT ARROW TO ARROW.

THEY CAN GO IN A MOTION TO

BE ABLE TO TRACK THAT

MISSILE.

IT IS AN AMAZING DEVELOPMENT

IT IS A JOINT U.S. PROJECT,

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK IT

IS MONEY WELL-SPENT.

Pat: CHRIS, UP TO THE

TIME THEY WERE USING

SO-CALLED CASEM ROCKETS.

WHAT ARE THEY USING NOW?

Reporter: THEY HAVE A

WHOLE LEVEL OF ROCKETS RIGHT

NOW, PAT.

THE FIRST ONE IS THE CASEM

ROCKETS.

IT HAS A SHORT, LIMITED

RANGE AND IT IS HOMEMADE.

THE NEXT IS THE CARAN

ROCKETS, MADE IN GAZA.

AND THE THIRD IS CALLED THE

M-75, AND IT HAS A RANGE OF

50 MILES.

IT CAN HIT PLACES LIKE

BASHAVE.

AND THE LAST IS AN M302

MISSILE, AND THEY HAVE COME

40 MILES NORTH OF TEL AVIV,

WHICH IS THE FURTHEST ANY OF

THESE MISSILES HAVE EVER

COME OUT OF GAZA.

AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, AS THE

AMBASSADOR TO THE U.S. SAID,

IMAGINE ALL OF THESE

MILLIONS OF ISRAELIS GOING

TO BOMB SHELTERS.

WE SAW IT YESTERDAY.

IT REMINDS ME A LITTLE OF

2006, WHEN WE WERE ON THE

LEBANESE BORDER, WHEN THE

HEZBOLLAH WAS FIRING ROCKETS

AND BASICALLY SHUT DOWN

NORTHERN ISRAEL.

THIS IS HAPPENING NOT ONLY

IN SOUTHERN ISRAEL, BUT THE

CENTRAL PART AS WELL.

Pat: CHRIS, IF THEY'RE

NOT MAKING THOSE THINGS ON

THE WEST BANK, WHERE ARE

THEY COMING FROM?

DOES ANYBODY KNOW THE

SOURCE?

Reporter: PAT, SOME OF

THEM ARE COMING FROM SYRIA.

THE M302 MISSILES, AND THEY

COME THROUGH IRAN.

THEY GET ON THE SHIPS, AND

JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO,

ISRAEL COMMANDOS, THEY

INTERCEPTED ONE OF THESE

SHIPS.

WE WERE DOWN THERE, IN THE

PORT OF ALAT, AND THEY PUT

ON DISPLAY 40 OF THE

MISSILES THAT HAVE A

LONG-RANGE.

THESE ARE THE ONES FIRING

WAY UP THE COAST FROM GAZA.

THEY'RE MADE IN SYRIA, GO TO

IRAN, AND THEY'VE BEEN

SMUGGLED INTO THE TUNNELS.

THE HARD THING FOR HAMAS IS

THE al-SISI GOVERNMENT HAS

CUT THE BORDER AND CLOSED

THE BORDER, SO SOME OF THE

LONG-RANGE MISSILES ARE NOT

ABLE TO GET THROUGH.

OBVIOUSLY, THEY HAVE SOME

STORED.

Pat: SOONER OR LATER,

ISRAEL IS GOING TO HAVE TO

CLEAN OUT THOSE NESTS

BECAUSE THEY CAN MOVE THE

ROCKET LAUNCHERS FROM PLACE

TO PLACE AND PUT THEM AND

HIDE THEM IN CIVILIAN

AREAS.

IS ISRAEL COMING IN WITH

TROOPS?

IS THAT THE PLAN?

Reporter: THAT IS THE

PLAN, IF THE ROCKETS DON'T

STOP.

I THINK THAT IS THE PLAN.

WE TALKED TO A FORMER

NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR

AND THEY SAID, THE FIRST

GOAL IS TO STOP THE ROCKETS,

AND THE SECOND IS TO DEGRADE

THE HAMAS FRACTURE, TO BE

ABLE TO FIRE THESE MISSILES

AND TO BE ABLE TO

MANUFACTURE THESE MISSILES.

THAT'S WHAT THEY'VE BEEN

DOING WITH THE AIR STRIKES

SYSTEMLY.

THAT WILL UNDOUBTEDLY

INCREASE, AND IF THE

MISSILES DON'T STOP, I WOULD

EXPECT SORT OF A GROUND

INCURSION, BUT THAT

OBVIOUSLY CARRIES ITS OWN

RISK, RISK TO THE

PALESTINIAN CIVILIANS, AND

RISK TO THE SOLDIERS.

IT CAN GET QUITE MESSY.

Pat: CHRIS, I'M TRYING

TO PUT THIS THING TOGETHER.

WHEN THINGS ARE ILLOGIC, YOU

CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT.

WHY WOULD A LITTLE, TINY

THING, LIKE HAMAS ON THE

WEST BANK IN GAZA, WHY WOULD

THEY ATTACK ISRAEL?

WHAT IS THE GAME PLAN?

THEY KNOW ISRAEL HAS

OVERWHELMING FORCE.

THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION,

PAT.

THERE IS A RELIGIOUS LOGIC

TO THEM.

THEY WANT TO ERADICATE THE

STATE OF ISRAEL AND KILL

JEWS.

AND THAT'S PART OF THEIR

LOGIC.

BUT I THINK ON A MORE

STRATEGICAL LEVEL, THEY WANT

TO ACTUALLY OPEN THE BORDER

WITH EGYPT.

THAT'S ONE OF THEIR

DEMANDS.

THEY WANT THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY TO ACTUALLY GIVE

THEM MONEY BECAUSE THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY CUT

THEIR MONEY SUPPLY OFF AFTER

THE KIDNAPPING OF THESE

THREE TEENAGED BOYS AND

THEIR TRAGIC MURDER.

AND ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS

THEY WANTED TO DO IS HAVE

ISRAEL RELEASE SOME OF THE

PRISONERS THAT WERE FREED

DURING THE GALAT KIDNAPPING

EXCHANGE.

SO THOSE ARE SOME OF THE

THINGS HAMAS WANTS ON A

SHORT-TERM BASIS.

OBVIOUSLY THEY KNOW ON A

LONG-TERM BASIS, ISRAEL HAS

THE MILITARY MITE TO COME

THERE AND WIPE THEM OUT.

IT IS A QUESTION RIGHT NOW

THAT ISRAEL IS ASKING

THEMSELVES: DO THEY WANT TO

GO IN THERE?

AND WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF

THEY TOPPLED HAMAS IN THE

GAZA STRIP.

WHO WOULD TAKE OVER AND

GOVERN THAT PLACE?

Pat: IT IS COUNTER-

COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE WHAT

THEY'RE DOING, UNLESS THEY

HAVE A PLAN TO LINK UP WITH

SYRIA.

THERE HAS TO BE SOME OTHER

CHESS MOVE TO BE PLAYED.

YOU HAVEN'T FIGURED THAT ONE

OUT YET, THOUGH, HAVE YOU?

Reporter: WELL, ONE

OTHER THING WE HAVE THOUGHT

ABOUT IS IRAN.

IF IRAN IS SORT OF PROVOKING

HAMAS TO BE ABLE TO DISTRACT

ISRAEL AND HAVE A GROUND

OPERATION WHILE IRAN

CONTINUES ITS NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

IRAN HAS CUT OFF TIES WITH

HAMAS IN THE LAST COUPLE OF

YEARS.

THIS WOULD BE ONE WAY HAMAS

COULD GET BACK IN THEIR GOOD

GRACES.

PEOPLE HAVE TOLD ME HERE,

SECURITY OFFICIALS, THEY

WANT TO KEEP THEIR EYE ON

THE BALL, AND THE BALL IS

REALLY IRAN AND ITS NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

THIS COULD BE SOMEWHAT OF A

DIVERSION.

BUT WHEN YOU HAVE ROCKETS

FIRING THROUGH MOST OF

ISRAEL, IT IS SOMETHING THE

GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO ADDRESS

AND TAKE CARE OF.

Pat: THANK YOU, CHRIS.

MAYBE THE ENEMIES ARE TRYING

TO FIND OUT SOME WEAKNESSES

OR EXPLOITIN EXPLOITING

EXPLOITING VULNERABILITIES

FOR FUTURE ACTION.

YOU ASK YOURSELF, WHAT IS ON

THEIR MIND?

I KNOW EXTREMISTS CAN DO

ILLOGICAL THINGS, BUT THIS

MAKES NO SENSE TO ME.

WELL, HERE AT HOME,

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS FACING

FIERCE CRITICISM FROM

REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS

OVER THAT BORDER CRISIS.

HE IS PLAYING POOL.

PLAYING POOL IN COLORADO

WITH THIS HUGE FLOOD OF

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FLOODING

INTO THE COUNTRY OF

AMERICA.

JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE ON THAT

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

Reporter: PAT,

PRESIDENT OBAMA CAME PRETTY

CLOSE TO THE U.S.-MEXICO

BORDER WEDNESDAY, BUT NOT

QUITE ALL THE WAY.

IN DALLAS, HE MET WITH

OFFICIALS AND RELIGIOUS

LEADERS TO DISCUSS THE

GROWING HUMANITARIAN

CRISIS.

BUT AS CHARLENE AARON

REPORTS, CRITICS SAY HE IS

MAKING A MISTAKE BY NOT

VISITING THE BORDER

HIMSELF.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENTS TRIP TO TEXAS

INCLUDED A POLITICAL

FUNDRAISER AND A MEETING

WITH LOCAL LEADERS.

BUT NO VISIT TO THE U.S.

SOUTHERN BORDER TO SEE THE

UNFOLDING IMMIGRATION

CRISIS.

I'M NOT INTERESTED IN

PHOTO OPS.

I'M IN INTERESTED IN SOLVING

A PROBLEM.

Reporter: THE G.O.P.

HAS BEEN PLASTING THE

PRESIDENT FOR HIS DECISION

TO STAY AWAY FROM THE

BORDER.

HE HAS MET WITH TEXAS

GOVERNOR RICK PERRY, WHO IS

HIGHLY CRITICAL OF HOW HIS

ADMINISTRATION HAS HANDLED

THE CRISIS.

THE PRESIDENT HAS SENT

POWERFUL MESSAGES TIME AFTER

TIME BY HIS POLICIES AND

NUANCES, THAT IT IS OKAY TO

COME TO THE UNITED STATES.

AND YOU CAN COME ACROSS AND

YOU'LL BE ACCEPTED IN OPEN

ARMS.

Reporter: BUT EVEN SOME

DEMOCRATS SAY THE PRESIDENT

NEEDS TO SEE FIRSTHAND THE

EFFECTS OF THE SURGE OF

UNACCOMPANIED MINORS

CROSSING ILLEGALLY.

HE IS SO CLOSE TO THE

BORDER.

AND I HATE TO USE THE WORD

"BIZARRE," BUT UNDER THE

CIRCUMSTANCES WHEN HE IS

SHOWN PLAYING POOL IN

COLORADO, DRINKING A BEER,

AND HE CAN'T GO 42 MILES TO

THE TEXAS BORDER.

AND, PLUS, IF HE DOESN'T

WANT TO GO DOWN TO THE

BORDER, THERE IS A AIR FORCE

BASE WHERE THEY ARE HOLDING

SOME OF THE YOUNG KIDS FROM

THE BORDER.

HE CAN AT LEAST MAKE THAT

TRIP TO SAN ANTONIO.

Reporter: TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF UNACCOMPANIED

MINORS STREAMING ACROSS THE

BORDER FROM CENTRAL AMERICA

HAVE OVERWHELMED THE

GOVERNMENT'S PAIBILITY

ABILITY TO RESPOND.

REPUBLICANS OPPOSE THE MOVE,

CLAIMING THE

ADMINISTRATION'S POLICIES

FOR THE CRISIS.

SENATORS JOHN CORNYN AND TED

CRUZ CONTEND THE PRESIDENT'S

EFFORTS TO RELAX SOME

DEPORTATIONS, THAT HAVE

CONTRIBUTED TO RUMORS

CIRCULATING IN CENTRAL

AMERICA, THAT THE KIDS WILL

BE ABLE TO STAY.

WITH ONE FEMA OFFICIAL

SAYING KIDS ARE COMING IN

FASTER THAN THEY CAN

DISCHARGE THEM.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: WELL, SOME

CRITICS HAVE CALLED THE

BORDER CRISIS PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S KATRINA, A REFERENCE

TO THE DIFFICULTIES

PRESIDENT BUSH FACED AFTER

THAT DISASTER.

NOW THE MAN WHO WAS A KEY

FIGURE IN THAT CONTROVERSY,

FORMER NEW ORLEANS MAYOR RAY

NAGAN IS GOING TO PRISON.

HE WAS SENTENCED FOR

BRIBERY, MONEY LAUNDERING.

MORE THAN 1800 PEOPLE DIED

DURING KATRINA.

AND THE TOTAL COSTS AND

DAMAGES CAME TO AROUND

$150 BILLION.

FORMER I.R.S. OFFICIAL LOIS

LERNER WARNED HER COLLEAGUES

TO BE MORE CAUTIOUS ABOUT

WHAT THEY WROTE IN E-MAILS

BECAUSE CONGRESS MIGHT BE

LOOKING AT THEM.

SHE SENT AN E-MAIL TO A

COLLEAGUE IN 2013, JUST AS

CONGRESS WAS GETTING INTO

ITS INVESTIGATION OF THE TEA

PARTY-TARGETING SCANDAL.

SHE WROTE, "WE HAVE HAD

SEVERAL OCCASIONS WHERE

CONGRESS HAS ASKED FOR

E-MAILS, AND THERE HAS BEEN

AN ELECTRONIC SEARCH FOR

RESPONSIVE E-MAILS, SO WE

NEED TO BE CAUTIOUS BY WHAT

WE SAY."

SOME REPUBLICANS BELIEVE

THIS IS MORE EVIDENCE THAT

LERNER WAS TRYING TO HIDE

WHAT SHE WAS DOING.

PAT, MORE FUEL TO THE FIRE.

Pat: THERE IS NOBODY

THAT IS DOING IT STRAIGHT IS

CONCERNED ABOUT SOMEBODY

READING THEIR E-MAILS.

THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO ARE

DOING THAT ARE THOSE WHO ARE

PULLING A SURUPTIOUS END

RUN.

LOIS LERNER STANDS THERE AND

SAYS, I'M NOT GOING TO

ANSWER ANY OF YOUR QUESTIONS

BECAUSE OF THE FIFTH

AMENDMENT.

I'M PLEADING THE FIFTH.

SO SHE IS WORRIED ABOUT

E-MAILS IN CREM

INCRIMINATING HER AND HER

OWN TESTIMONY INCRIMINATING

HER.

YOU ASK YOURSELF, WHAT DOES

SHE HAVE TO HIDE?

I GUESS THE ONLY WAY WE'RE

GOING TO GET THIS IS TO SAY

WE'LL GIVE YOU A BLANKET OF

IMMUNITY, NOW TALK.

IT WILL BE HARD SENDING HER

TO JAIL UNDER THE

CIRCUMSTANCES AS THEY ARE

NOW.

BUT SHE SHOULD WIND UP WITH

A STRIPED SUIT, DOING A

LITTLE TIME, IT SEEMS LIKE

TO ME.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, TURNING

TO HEALTH NEWS, IT IS NOT

JUST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO

ARE FAT.

SO ARE AMERICAN PETS.

AND THAT'S LED TO A RISE OF

FAT CAMPS FOR PUDGY POOCHES

AND CHUNKY CATS.

53% OF DOGS ARE OVERWEIGHT,

AND FOR CATS, NEARLY 58% ARE

FAT.

AND THEY CAN HAVE THE SAME

DISEASES AT OBESE PEOPLE,

LIKE DIABETES, JOINT

PROBLEMS, HEART DISEASE, AND

A SHORTER LIFE SPAN.

ONE REASON, OWNERS GIVE

THEIR PETS AN EXTRA SNACK OR

TWO DURING THE DAY.

NOW LUXURY PET HOTELS ACROSS

THE COUNTRY WILL HAVE AN

EXERCISE PROGRAM FOR PLUMP

DOGS OR CATS.

PAT, THAT KIND OF PUTS THE

PHRASE "FAT CATS" BACK INTO

PERSPECTIVE, LITERALLY.

Pat: HEY, THAT'S YOUR

LINE.

Wendy: YOU CAN'T BLAME

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP ON

THAT.

Pat: I BUY PURINA PUT

CHOW.

MY PUPPY HAD TWO CUPS OF

THAT STUFF PERIOD, AND NOW

SHE GETS FOUR CUPS OF THE

ADULT, PERIOD.

THAT'S IT, ALL DAY LONG.

IF SHE DOESN'T LIKE IT, IT'S

TOUGH LUCK.

AND SHE LOVES IT.

AND EVERY SO OFTEN, I HAVE

LITTLE TREATS TO GET HER TO

DO TRICKS, BUT HEALTHY,

HAPPY DOGS, NOT BEING

OVERFED.

IF YOU'RE FEEDING THEM TABLE

SCRAPS PLUS THE DOG FOOD,

CANNED DOG FOOD, OF COURSE

THEY'RE GOING TO GET FAT.

DON'T FEED THEM YOUR

SCRAPS.

THE FOOD YOU EAT IS PROBABLY

POISON.

GIVE THEM A -- STUFF FROM A

COMPANY LIKE PURINA.

THEY HAVE MUCH HIGHER

NUTRITIONAL STANDARDS THAN

MOST FOOD THAT HUMAN BEINGS

EAT.

Wendy: PEOPLE HATE TO

WASTE FOOD, SO THEY SAY,

LET'S GIVE IT TO THE DOG.

Pat: AND HERE IS FIDO,

AND HE STANDS ON HIS

LEGS --

Wendy: BUT YOUR KILLING

YOUR DOG IF YOU DO THAT.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

IF YOU HATE YOUR DOG AND YOU

WANT TO KILL THEM, THAT'S

THE WAY TO DO IT, GIVE THEM

ALL OF THE TABLE SCRAPS HE

CAN EAT.

DON'T I SOUND CRUEL?

Wendy: IT IS TOUGH

LOVE, PAT.

Pat: TO HAVE HEALTHY

DOGS.

Wendy: UP NEXT, SCOTT

ROSS TAKES US ON A VISIT TO

ROCKET TOWN, THE BOMB

SHELTER CAPITAL OF THE

WORLD.

HEAR WHAT IT IS LIKE TO LIVE

UNDER FIRE ALMOST DAILY,

FROM SURVIVORS IN ISRAEL.

Pat: YEARS AGO, I

VISITED BA VISITED BEIRUT,

DURING THAT WAR-TORN TIME IN

THAT COUNTRY.

AND I REALIZED THAT LEBANESE

TEENAGERS ON THE WAY TO THE

BEACH, OUT FOR A HAPPY

AFTERNOON, WOULD GET BLOWN

UP BY ARBITRARY SHELL FIRE

FROM HUNDREDS -- NOT

HUNDREDS, BUT MILES AWAY.

AND THEY NEVER KNEW WHEN

THEY MIGHT DIE.

THEY NEVER KNEW WHEN A SHELL

WOULD COME ROCKETING THROUGH

THE APARTMENT WHERE THEY

WERE LIVING AND BLOW THEM

ALL UP.

AND SO THERE WAS INCREDIBLE

AMOUNTS OF MENTAL ILLNESS

AND HYSTERYE HYSTERIA AND

PROBLEMS AND NERVOUS

BREAKDOWNS, BECAUSE THEY

LIVED UNDER CONSTANT FEAR.

THEY NEVER KNEW WHEN A SHELL

WOULD COME RACING THROUGH

THEIR LIVING ROOM.

OR, AS I SAY, THEY WERE

DRIVING TO THE BEACH AND

SOMEBODY WOULD BLOW UP THE

CAR THEY WERE IN AND KILL

THEM ALL.

IT IS TERRIBLE.

IMAGINE LIVING EVERY DAY

KNOWING THAT DEADLY MISSILES

COULD FALL INTO YOUR HOME,

YOUR SCHOOL, OR YOUR

BUSINESS.

THAT'S WHAT LIFE HAS BEEN

LOOK IN THE ISRAELI SOMEONE

OF SEROT, ON THE BORDER OF

GAZA.

AND THE RECENT ROCKETS ARE

THE LATEST ESCALATION OF

ATTACKS THAT HAVE BEEN

GOING

ON,

UNFORTUNATELY, SINCE

2001.

SCOTT ROSS VISITED SEROT, TO

SEE WHAT IT IS LIKE TO LIVE

UNDER THE CONSTANT THREAT OF

DEADLY ATTACKS.

Reporter: THEY CALL IT

ROCKET TOWN, THE BOMB

SHELTER CAPITAL OF THE

WORLD.

FOR MORE THAN A DECADE,

ISRAELIS IN STEROT AND

SOUTHERN ISRAEL HAVE LIVED

UNDER ALMOST DAILY ROCKET

ATTACKS FROM THE GAZA

STRIP.

IS THIS REPRESENTATIVE OF

WHAT YOU'RE DEALING WITH ALL

OF THE TIME?

THE VERY SMALL FRACTIONS

OF THE ROCKETS THEMSELVES

EXPLODED HERE.

Reporter: YOU HAVE

PEOPLE GETTING KILLED HERE

IN YOUR TOWN?

WE'VE HAD OVER 44 PEOPLE

KILLED OVER ROCKET FIRE, AND

1200 HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY

INJURED.

AT THE SAME TIME, YOU HAVE

AN ENTIRE GENERATION THAT

GREW UP WITH THIS KIND OF

REALITY.

Reporter: DAVID WAS

BORN AND RAISED IN STEROT,

AND HAS BEEN THE CITY'S

MAYOR FOR 14 YEARS.

YOU LOVE THIS TOWN AND

YOU LOVE THE PEOPLE?

OF COURSE.

SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT LOVE

THIS TOWN CANNOT LIVE HERE.

Reporter: DAY BY DAY,

YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS

LIFESTYLE, WHERE ROCKETS ARE

BEING SHOWERED, LITERALLY,

UPON YOU.

HOW DOES ONE ADJUST TO THAT,

IF YOU EVER DO, REALLY?

IN 2001, IT WAS THE THIRD

MISSILE THAT LAUNCHED

THROUGH THIS CITY.

SINCE THEN WE'VE HAD MORE

THAN 8,000 MISSILES.

Reporter: 8,000?

8,000 MISSILES, ONLY INTO

STEROT.

IT IS A LITTLE TOWN, 5. 5.5

SQUARE KILOMETRES.

25,000 PEOPLE LIVE HERE.

8,000 HIT ALMOST EVERY

APARTMENT, EVERY HOUSE IN

THIS CITY.

Reporter: HE SAYS MANY

ISRAELIS HERE SUFFER FROM

POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS

DISORDER.

THE MAYOR TOOK ME TO A HILL

ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, WHERE

WE COULD SEE JUST HOW CLOSE

THE GAZA STRIP IS.

THIS IS THE BORDER.

840 METERS, AND IT IS

SOMETHING LIKE HALF A MILE.

Reporter: THEY COULD

FIRE ROCKETS AT THESE TOWERS

AND NOT BEND DOWN --

YEAH.

THEY LAUNCH THE ROCKETS

THROUGH THE ELECTRIC POWER

STATIONS.

Reporter: YOU SUPPLY

GAZA --

WE GIVE THEM ELECTRIC,

AND THEY LAUNCH ROCKETS

THROUGH THE ELECTRIC POWER

STATION.

AND THEN THEY COMPLAIN THEY

HAVE DARKNESS IN THEIR

CITY.

Reporter: EVERY ONE WHO

DRIVES IN STEROT TURNS OFF

THE RADIO AND ROLLS THE

WINDOWS DOWN, READY TO HEAR

THE COLOR RED SIREN TO MAKE

A MAD DASH FOR SAFETY.

AND HERE I AM ON A

PLAYGROUND WHERE KIDS COME

AND PLAY.

HERE IS A CATEPILLAR.

AND ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE

WORLD, THIS WOULD BE A

NORMAL CATEPILLAR.

HOWEVER, THIS IS A BIT

DIFFERENT.

THIS IS, IN FACT, A BOMB

SHELTER.

SO WHEN KIDS COME OUT HERE

TO PLAY, A SIREN GOES OFF,

AND THEY HAVE 15 SECONDS TO

GET INSIDE HERE TO BE

PROTECTED FROM FALLING

BOMBS.

HOW DOES THIS ENVIRONMENT

AFFECT CHILDREN AS THEY'RE

GROWING UP?

ONLY YESTERDAY WAS

TALKING TO ONE OF MY

FRIENDS, THAT HER BOY THAT'S

IN OUR KINDERGARTEN, TOO --

WE HAD TWO ALARMS YESTERDAY,

OR THE DAY BEFORE, AND HE

WAS SO PANICKED, SHE HAD TO

GET OUT OF WORK AND COME AND

GET HIM.

HE IS ONLY TWO YEARS OLD.

Reporter: AGARI IS

STEROT'S SOCIAL WORKER.

WE HAVE TO BE AWARE OF WHERE

THE BOMB SHELTER IS?

RIGHT THERE.

Reporter: NOTHING MOVED

ME MORE THAN MEETING GARUT.

IN JANUARY 2008, SHE WAS

SITTING IN HER HOME WITH HER

4-YEAR-OLD SON AND HER

NEIGHBORHOOD CHILD ON HER

LAP.

A ROCKET CRASHED THROUGH THE

ROOM WHERE THEY WERE

SITTING.

A BOMB COMES THROUGH THE

WALL INTO THE ROOM.

ALL OF THE ROOF WAS CRUSHED

ON US.

FROM THE -- HOW YOU SAY --

Reporter: THE

EXPLOSION?

YEAH, THE EXPLOSION.

THE GIRL WAS, YOU KNOW,

FLYING TO THE CORNER.

THERE WAS SHRAPNELS IN MY

HEAD.

AND THEY OPERATED AND THEY

TOOK OUT THREE OF THEM.

BUT ONE OF THEM, IT GET DEEP

INTO THE BRAIN SO THEY DON'T

WANT TO TOUCH IT.

GARUT WAS IN REHAB FOR A

YEAR AND A HALF.

BUT THAT WASN'T THE END OF

HER TROUBLE.

NEARLY FIVE YEARS LATER, HER

SON IS STILL AFRAID TO SLEEP

IN HIS ROOM.

THE FAMILY HAS TO RUN TO THE

BOMB SHELTER, SOMETIMES

THREE TIMES A NIGHT.

SO WHY DOES SHE STAY?

IT'S MY COUNTRY.

IT'S MY CITY.

I WAS BORN HERE.

I LOVE IT.

IF YOU WANT TO MOVE, YOU

NEED TO SELL THE HOUSE.

NO ONE WANTS TO BUY A HOUSE

IN STEROT.

NO ONE WANTS TO COME FROM

OUTSIDE TO LIVE UNDER

BOMBING, YOU KNOW?

BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU, WE

LOVE THIS CITY.

Reporter: HOW DOES IT

AFFECT YOU NOW, WHEN YOU

HEAR THE ROCKETS LANDING,

BECAUSE THEY'RE STILL

SHOOTING THEM HERE?

EVERY TIME I HEAR THE

SIREN, IT TAKES ME TO BACK

THEN.

WHEN I GO DOWN TO THE

SHELTER, I'M SITTING, AND

I'M TRYING -- I STOP CRYING

EVERY TIME AND AGAIN AND

AGAIN.

Reporter: DO YOU

BELIEVE THAT GOD PROTECTED

YOU?

YEAH.

YEAH.

Reporter: YOU DO

BELIEVE THAT?

I BELIEVE THAT, YEAH.

Reporter: YOU'RE NOT

ANGRY WITH GOD BECAUSE HE

ALLOWED IT TO HAPPEN?

NO.

NO.

I THINK NOW, AND I THOUGHT

BACK THEN, THAT IT WAS A

MIRACLE.

Reporter: OH, YES.

AND HE PROTECTS ON ME,

AND HE LIFTS ME.

AND HE LEADS ME IN HIS WORD

FOR MY BOYS.

AND I THANK HIM EVERY

MORNING.

I NEVER WAS THAT BELIEVER,

YOU KNOW?

BUT SINCE THAT DAY, I

BELIEVE MORE IN GOD.

Reporter: SCOTT ROSS,

CBN, STEROT, ISRAEL.

Pat: THAT TAKES YOUR

BREATH AWAY, DOESN'T IT?

IT'S SO TRAGIC.

WHAT I SAW IN LEBANON, YOU

THINK, A HAPPY TEENAGER ON

THE WAY TO THE BEACH,

DRIVING ALONG, AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN BLOWN UP BY A ROCKET

COMING FROM -- THEY DON'T

KNOW FROM WHERE.

SUDDENLY OUT OF THE AIR AND

THEY'RE GONE.

THE SAME THING IN STEROT.

THAT POOR WOMAN, SHE IS

SITTING IN HER HOUSE AND

SUDDENLY THAT ROCKET

EXPLODES.

THIS IS SERIOUS BUSINESS.

TALK ABOUT BRAVERY, WE DON'T

EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT BRAVERY

IS.

THEY ARE INCREDIBLY BRAVE,

BUT, AT THE SAME TIME, IT IS

DESTROYING THE YOUNG

PEOPLE.

AND YOU UNDERSTAND WHY.

WENDY, I'M SORT OF

SPEECHLESS.

Wendy: IT IS AN

INCREDIBLE STORY, AND IT

REALLY PUTS A FACE AND PUTS

THE EMOTION BEHIND WHAT IS

HAPPENING EVERY DAY IN

ISRAEL.

AND, LIKE YOU SAID, THEY ARE

SO MUCH MORE COURAGEOUS.

Pat: UP IN LEBANON, IT

WAS A P.L.O., AND THESE

MUSLIMS THAT ARE DOING THESE

ACTS OF TERROR -- THE

CHRISTIAN GROUPS DON'T

TERRORIZE PEOPLE.

AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE DON'T

TERRORIZE PEOPLE.

BUT IT IS THESE GROUPS LIKE

HAMAS AND THE P.L.O. AND

THE -- YOU NAME IT, WHOEVER

THEY ARE.

LITTLE FRINGE GROUPS -- WERP

AND THEY'RE

Wendy: AND THEY'RE

BITING THE HAND THAT FEEDS

THEM.

LIKE THE MAN SAID, WE'RE

PROVIDING THEM ELECTRICITY,

AND THEY'RE BOMBING US.

IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

Pat: ISRAEL, ON THE

BORDER OF LEBANON, WE HAD AN

OPERATION UP THERE, AND

MAJOR HADAD RAN THE LEBANESE

MALITIA, AND THEY WOULD CUT

OFF THE POWER FROM THE

CENTRAL POWER STATION DOWN

TO SOUTHERN LEBANON.

AND SO HE WOULD TAKE A

75-MILLIMETER CANNON, AND

POINT IT AT THE POWER

STATION, AND SEND OFF A

COUPLE OF ROUNDS UNTIL THEY

TURNED THE POWER BACK ON.

IT WAS SORT OF A JOKE.

NOBODY GOT HURT.

Wendy: UP NEXT, DO YOU

RECOGNIZE THIS MAN?

I WAS A FORMER

PROFESSIONAL BODY BUILDER.

I WAS WELL-KNOWN, AND I HAD

A LOT OF NOTORIETY, MAGAZINE

COVERS, TITLES, FANS.

I COULDN'T IMAGINE NOT BEING

ABLE TO DO THE THING THAT I

LOVED THE MOST.

Wendy: SEE HOW THIS

BODY BUILDER WAS SUPER

NATURALLY HEALED.

THAT'S COMING UP.

Wendy: HE IS A FORMER

MR. U.S.A., AND A FORMER

MR. AMERICA.

BUT A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO,

BODY BUILDER PETER PUTNAM

THOUGHT THIS WEIGHTLIFTING

DAYS MIGHT SOON BE OVER.

AND NOW HE IS BACK TO

PUMPING IRON FULL THROTTLE,

THANKS TO A TV SHOW PETER

HAS BEEN WATCHING SINCE HE

WAS A LITTLE BOY.

SO I LIVED THE DREAM, PER

SE.

I WAS A FORMER I.F.

PROFESSIONAL BODY BUILDER.

I WAS WELL-KNOWN.

I HAD A LOT OF NOTORIETY.

MAGAZINE COVERS, TITLES,

FANS.

AS I TRANSITIONED AWAY FROM

PROFESSIONAL BODY BUILDING,

I NO LONGER WAS COMPETING,

BUT I CONTINUED TRAINING,

HEAVY LIFTING.

BUT I GRADUALLY BEGAN TO

NOTICE PAIN IN MY SHOULDER.

IT KEPT GETTING WORSE AND

WORSE, TO THE POINT WHERE I

LITERAL HALL TO AVOID

TRAINING MY SHOULDERS.

OVER A YEAR'S TIME, IT

BECAME REALLY DEBILITATE

DEBILITATING.

AND THEN WHEN IT STARTED

AFFECTING ME OUTSIDE THE

GYM, WAKING UP IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE NIGHT BECAUSE THE

PAIN WAS SO SEVERE, I WAS

REALLY CONCERNED AND

SCARED.

I THOUGHT, HOW IS THIS GOING

TO CHANGE THINGS?

I COULDN'T IMAGINE NOT BEING

ABLE TO DO THE THING I LOVED

THE MOST.

PRETTY MUCH DAILY I WOULD

PRAY FOR MY SHOULDER, LAY MY

HAND ON MY SHOULDER AND

COMMAND THE PAIN TO LEAVE.

I BELIEVED IT WOULD BE

HEALED.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW LONG IT

WOULD TAKE, BUT I NEVER GAVE

UP FAITH.

I'VE BEEN WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" FOR YEARS.

MAY 2nd I STARTED OUT MY

DAY LIKE ANY OTHER DAY,

EATING BREAKFAST AND

WATCHING CBN.

GORDON WAS ABOUT TO GO INTO

THAT SPECIFIC SEGMENT WITH

WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE.

I DECIDED TO JOIN IN IN

AGREEMENT AND PRAY ALONG

WITH GORDON.

AS I PUT MY LEFT HAND ON MY

SHOULDER --

Gordon: SOMEONE ELSE

WITH A RIGHT SHOULDER,

YOU'VE HAD TORN TENDONS

WITHIN THE SHOULDER, AND GOD

IS HEALING ALL OF THAT.

IN THAT MOMENT, I FELT

THE HOLY SPIRIT JUST COME

ALL OVER ME.

AND I KNEW I WAS BEING

HEALED.

I JUST BEGAN TO PRAISE GOD

AND SAID, I RECEIVE THIS

HEALING.

Gordon: WHAT YOU

COULDN'T DO BEFORE, DO IT

NOW.

AND SINCE THAT DAY, I'VE

BEEN ABLE TO DO ALL OF THE

ACTIVITIES I HAVEN'T BEEN

ABLE TO DO.

THE PAIN THAT WAS

EXCRUCIATING, IT'S GONE.

ALL OF THE HEAVY LIFTING,

HUNDREDS OF POUNDS, THE SAME

SHOULDER THAT COULDN'T DO

THOSE BEFORE IS ABLE TO DO

THAT AGAIN.

IT IS AMAZING TO BE BACK IN

THE GYM AND DOING THE THINGS

I LOVE.

WHAT CHRIST DID IS HIS WORK

AT THE CROSS.

THAT SICKNESS, THAT DISEASE,

BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH

GOD.

HE DID IT FOR ME, AND HE CAN

DO IT FOR OTHERS.

Wendy: WOW, THAT'S

INCREDIBLE.

WE HAVE -- I KNOW YOU WERE

REALLY GETTING INTO THAT

STORY BECAUSE YOU USED TO

PUMP A LOT OF IRON.

Pat: THAT'S IT.

I PUMPED SOME HEAVY IRON.

I'M NOT IN HIS LEAGUE -- I

NEVER WAS, BUT IN MY LEG

PRESSES, I WAS IN THAT

TERRITORY.

Wendy: INSTANTLY HEALED

AFTER SUFFERING FOR SO

LONG.

Pat: YOU HAVE NO IDEA

HOW MUCH THOSE THINGS CAN

HURT UNLESS YOU'RE ENGAGED

IN IT.

I PULLED SOMETHING AND MY

SHOULDER WAS JUST KILLING

ME.

BUT I WAS PUMPING, YOU KNOW,

A PRETTY GOOD LOAD OF IRON

AND IT SLIPPED.

IT TAKES JUST A COUPLE OF

INCHES, AND --

Wendy: OUCH!

Pat: AND IT FINALLY GOT

HEALED.

GO AHEAD.

Wendy: WE'VE GOT

INCREDIBLE ANSWERS TO

PRAYER.

VERONICA FROM NORTH CAROLINA

SUFFERED A FRACTURED NECK IN

1998 FROM DOMESTIC

VIOLENCE.

THE INJURY DEVELOPED INTO 11

DETERIORATING DISKS.

SHE WAS ON PAIN MEDS, WITH

NO RESULTS.

ONE DAY VERONICA WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB," AND

YOU, PAT, GAVE THIS WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE: "THERE IS A

TERRIBLE NECK PAIN AND IT IS

RADIATING UP INTO YOUR

HEAD.

YOU JUST CRIED OUT, OH, GOD,

PLEASE TAKE THIS AWAY.

YOU'LL FEEL IT JUST LEAVE

YOUR HEAD.

YOUR NECK WILL BE RELEASED,

AND YOU'LL BE COMPLETELY

WHOLE IN JESUS' NAME."

VERONICA FELT A BURNING UP

HER SPINE AND INTO HER

HEAD.

SHE STOOD UP AND MOVED HER

NECK AROUND, AND THE PAIN

WAS COMPLETELY GONE.

Pat: PRAISE GOD.

THIS IS FAITH, WHO LIVES IN

AAMARILLO, TEXAS, AND SHE

WAS DIAGNOSED WITH SOMETHING

I'VE NEVER HEARD OF.

WOLF PARKINSON'S WHITE

SYNDROME.

Wendy: OH, MY.

Pat: IT IS AN

ELECTRICAL CHEMICAL

IMBALANCE OF THE HEART.

THE CARDIOLOGIST SAID SHE

NEEDED AN OBLATION TO TREAT

THE ABNORMAL ELECTRICAL

ACTIVITY.

FAITH'S MOTHER CALLED "THE

700 CLUB" FOR PRAYER.

SHE FELT SOMETHING IN THE

SPIRIT WHEN SHE PRAYED WITH

OUR COUNSELLOR.

SHE RETURNED TO THE

CARDIOLOGIST, AND GUESS

WHAT?

FAITH'S HEART IS COMPLETELY

HEALED.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU,

FOLKS.

HEY, THIS WORLD IS A MESS.

THIS WORLD IS A MESS.

THEY'RE TEARING IRAQ APART.

THE IRANIANS WANT TO BUILD A

BOMB.

THE NORTH KOREANS ARE TRYING

TO BLOW PEOPLE UP WITH THEIR

BOMBS.

ISRAEL IS GETTING READY TO

GO INTO WAR AGAINST HAMAS

AND GAZA.

AND THE TERRORISTS ARE

TRYING TO CAPTURE LITTLE

GIRLS IN NIGERIA.

YOU GO AROUND THE WORLD, AND

YOU SAY, OH, GOD, DO

SOMETHING.

WELL, LET'S PRAY.

LET'S PRAY FOR THE WORLD AND

LET'S PRAY FOR YOU.

AND I APPRECIATE ANN GRAHAM

LOTTS, THE DAUGHTER OF BILLY

GRAHAM, AND A WONDERFUL

PERSON.

SHE SENT

OUT AN URGENT

REQUEST FOR PRAYER.

I SENT IT OUT TO HER, AND

SENT HER LETTER TO PEOPLE.

SHE IS ASKING FOR A SEASON

OF PRAYER.

SHE FEELS SOMETHING REALLY

BIG IS GETTING READY TO

HAPPEN IN THE WORLD.

I DON'T KNOW.

THAT'S HER FEELING.

NEVERTHELESS, WE KNOW THE

WORLD IS --

Wendy: GOD SAYS HE DOES

NOTHING WITHOUT TELLING HIS

PROPHETS, AND I'VE HEARD

THAT NOT JUST FROM ANN

GRAHAM, BUT PEOPLE ON

Facebook, SAYING LET'S

PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY RIGHT

NOW.

A LOT OF PEOPLE SENSING THIS

IS THE HOUR TO PRAY.

Pat: LET'S JOIN HANDS.

FATHER, I JOIN RIGHT NOW.

LORD, WE PRAY FOR AMERICA.

WE PRAY FOR THE WORLD.

GOD ALMIGHTY, WE KNOW THAT

YOUR WORK

ON EARTH IS NOT

COMPLETEED.

THERE

COMPLETED.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

NOT

YET FOUND JESUS.

LORD, HOLD BACK

THE EVIL

DAYS UNTIL THE

HARVEST IS

FULFILLED.

LET YOUR PEACE FLOW LIKE A

RIVER INTO THE HOMES OF

PEOPLE WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, WHEREVER THEY ARE,

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

Wendy: LORD, WE DO

PRAY, RIGHT NOW, FOR THE

PEACE OF JERUSALEM.

YOU COMMAND US TO PRAY FOR

THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM, AND

SECURE HER BORDERS.

WE ASK, LORD, FOR FAVOR,

THAT THE WORLD WILL HAVE

FAVOR ON ISRAEL RIGHT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: SOMEBODY IS

COUGHING -- LOOKS LIKE A

BLEEDING ULCER, AND YOU'RE

COUGHING UP BLOOD.

YOU'RE REALLY SCARED ABOUT

THIS.

IT IS NOT CANCER.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE OKAY.

RIGHT NOW GOD HAS JUST

TOUCHED AND HEALED YOU.

AND YOU'LL FEEL BURNING IN

YOUR CENTER AND GOD HAS JUST

HEALED YOU.

Wendy: THERE ARE A LOT

OF PEOPLE WITH EAR

INFECTIONS -- IN COMMON IN

THE SUMMER.

THE LORD IS TOUCHING YOUR

EARS RIGHT NOW.

JUST RECEIVE THAT HEALING IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: SOMEBODY HAS AN

ABNORMAL GROWTH IN YOUR

HEART.

ABNORMAL GROWTH.

AND YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED,

AND AGAIN YOU'RE SHORT OF

BREATH AND YOUR HEADING FOR

TROUBLES.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS TOUCHING

YOU AND HEALING YOU IN THE

NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OF

NAZARETH

.

RIGHT NOW!

LORD, BLESS THE PEOPLE.

HEAL THEM, WE PRAY.

DELIVER THEM IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: AND AMEN.

YOU.

WE LOVE YOU.

LEG OR WHATEVER IT IS, AND

THEY'LL PRAY FOR YOU.

1-800-759-0700.

WENDY?

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

WE'LL BRING "BRING IT ON."

BURT SAYS, "I SUPPORT

ISRAEL, BUT I HAVE NOTICED A

LARGE COMMUNITY THAT

DESCRIBES ZIONISM AS

RACISM.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE

ZIONISM?"

STAY TUNED FOR PAT'S ANSWER

WHEN WE COME BACK.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

CHINESE HACKERS BROKE INTO

COMPUTER NETWORKS OF THE

U.S. PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT

OFFICE.

THAT'S THE OFFICE THAT

HOUSES PERSONAL INFORMATION

FOR ALL FEDERAL EMPLOYEES.

THE "NEW YORK TIMES" REPORTS

THE ATTACK OCCURRED EARLIER

THIS YEAR.

HACKERS WERE SEEKING TO

ACCESS THE FILES OF THE

FEDERAL EMPLOYEES WHO HAD

APPLIED FOR TOP SECRET

SECURITY CLEARANCES.

SENIOR OFFICIALS CONFIRMED

THE ATTACK IN MARCH, SAYING

IT WAS BLOCKED.

SAYING NO PERSONAL

IDENTIFICATION HAS BEEN

IDENTIFIED.

A CHURCH IN FLORIDA

DISPLAYED A FIRSTHAND LESSON

IN FORGIVENESS AFTER THEIR

OFFERING WAS STOLEN.

THE PASTOR OF KIRKWOOD

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH SAYS SHE

WAS JUST ABOUT TO PUT THE

OFFERING IN A SAFE WHEN A

YOUNG MAN IN HIS 20s

WALKED IN, GRABBED THE BAG,

AND BOLTED OUT OF A NEARBY

DOOR.

HOW DESPERATE DO YOU HAVE

TO BE THAT YOU WOULD STEAL

FROM A CHURCH?

THE CHURCH SHOULD BE A PLACE

OF GRACE, A PLACE OF SECOND

CHANCES.

SO, YES, THERE IS

FORGIVENESS.

BUT HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO

WORK THROUGH THE

CONSEQUENCES OF THOSE SINS,

WHETHER THAT IS PERSONAL OR

ON A LEGAL LEVEL.

HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO

ADDRESS THAT.

THAT CONGREGATION QUICKLY

POSTED A SIGN IN FRONT OF

THE CHURCH, PROCLAIMING

FORGIVENESS OVER THE THEFT,

WHICH COULD HAVE TOPPED

$10,000.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN ALWAYS GET

THE LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE,

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: REMEMBER A FEW

YEARS AGO, I WAS IN INDIA,

AND WE HAD A CEREMONY WHERE

WE ESTABLISHED A WATER WELL,

AND I SAW WHERE THE PEOPLE

HAD BEEN DRINKING BEFORE WE

GOT THAT WELL IN.

IT WAS A HOLE IN THE

GROUND.

THE WATER WAS GREEN.

AND IT WAS DIRTY.

YOU AND I WOULDN'T HAVE

TOUCHED IT WITH A THOUSAND

FOOT POLE.

IT WAS HORRIBLE LOOKING BUT

THAT'S ALL THOSE PEOPLE HAD

TO DRINK, TO COOK, TO

BATHE.

IT WAS HORRIBLE.

AND THAT WELL BROUGHT A

HUGE, LIFE-SAVING THRUST OF

WATER INTO THAT COMMUNITY.

WELL, 1.1 BILLION PEOPLE

WORLDWIDE LIVE WITHOUT CLEAN

DRINKING WATER, IN PLACES

LIKE KENYA, WHERE A WOMAN

NAMED EMILY HAD A DREAM, A

DREAM THAT LED TO A

MIRACLE.

MY NAME IS EMILY GLUTU.

I LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES,

BUT MY STORY BEGINS IN

AFRICA.

I GREW UP IN A SMALL VILLAGE

IN KENYA.

WHEN I WAS YOUNG, I GOT UP

EARLY AND FETCHED WATER FROM

A NEARBY STREAM.

AS I GOT OLDER, I REALIZED

MANY PEOPLE DID NOT HAVE

EASY ACCESS TO WATER.

THIS IS THE WAY IT WAS IN MY

HUSBAND'S VILLAGE, WHICH IS

CALLED MORENGA.

IT IS A DRY PLACE, WHERE THE

HOUSES ARE MEAGER.

ONCE IN GENERATIONS LONG

PAST, WATER WAS ABANDONED

HEREABUNDANT HERE, BUT THE

RIVERS HAVE RUN DRY.

AND SOMETIMES THE EARTH

ITSELF IS ALL THAT FLOWS IN

THIS PLACE.

THE SUN BAKES ALL THAT IT

TOUCHES.

AND THE BLOWING DUST LEAVES

DEATH IN ITS PATH.

WHEN MY HUSBAND, GABRIEL,

AND I MARRIED, I STAYED FOR

A SHORT TIME IN MORENGA, AND

FETCHED WATER WITH THE OTHER

WOMEN.

THE WATER WAS A LONG WAY

OFF.

AROUND A DISTANT MOUNTAIN.

EVERY DAY THE WOMEN OF

MORENGA MADE THIS JOURNEY.

AFTER WE MARRIED, GABRIEL

AND I MOVED TO THE UNITED

STATES.

GABRIEL STUDIED AND BECAME A

PASTOR.

LIFE IS EASY IN THE UNITED

STATES, BUT I'VE NOT

FORGOTTEN ABOUT THE WOMEN OF

HIS VILLAGE.

WOMEN LIKE ELIZABETH AND

CHRISTINA.

I WAKE UP 7:00 IN THE

MORNING AND I GO TO FETCH

WATER FOR THE DAY.

I DO NOT GET BACK HOME UNTIL

11:00.

I HAD A DONKEY, BUT IT

DIED.

NOW I MUST CARRY WATER

MYSELF.

SOMETIMES I HAVE TO GO TWICE

TO GET ENOUGH FOR THE DAY.

AND ON THOSE DAYS, I AM SO

TIRED I CAN DO NOTHING

ELSE.

I'M A TEACHER, BUT I ALSO

HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF MY HOS

AND M HOUSE AND MY FAMILY.

I CAN ONLY TEACH IN THE

MORNING BECAUSE EVERY

AFTERNOON I GO TO THE BASIN

TO GET WATER, AND IT IS

DIRTY.

MANY CHILDREN GET SICK AND

MISS SCHOOL BECAUSE OF

STOMACH INFECTIONS.

WITHOUT WATER, EVEN THE

ANIMALS GET SICK.

IN THE UNITED STATES, I

WORK AS A FOUNDER, AND I

POUR WATER EVERY DAY.

AND I REMEMBER MORENGA.

I JUST STARTED THINKING IF I

WAS STILL LIVING THERE WITH

MY KIDS, AND THEM GETTING

SICK.

MY HUSBAND AND I STARTED TO

PRAY AND ASK GOD, HOW CAN WE

BE OF HELP TO TH THE

VILLAGERS.

AND I KNEW IF THEY COULD GET

CLEAN WATER, IT MAY HELP

THEM GIVE THEIR LIVES TO

JESUS.

MY HEART WAS TROUBLED, SO I

FASTED AND PRAYED THAT THE

LORD WOULD SHOW ME THE WAY

TO HELP MY PEOPLE.

ON THE FIFTH DAY OF MY FAST,

THE HAND OF GOD MOVED.

WE WERE SITTING THERE,

HAVING BREAKFAST, AND THIS

PRECIOUS YOUNG WOMAN CAME,

AND WE STARTED TALKING.

AND THEY WANTED TO KNOW

WHERE I'M FROM.

I SAID I'M FROM KENYA.

SHE WANTED TO KNOW WHAT

WE WERE DOING THERE.

AND WE SAID WE WERE A

MINISTRY THAT DUG WELLS IN

COUNTRIES THAT DIDN'T HAVE

CLEAN DRINKING WATER.

SHE BURST INTO TEARS.

I THOUGHT, OH, MY GOSH, WHAT

DO WE SAY.

SHE SAID, I HAVE BEEN

FASTING AND PRAYING FOR A

SWELA WELL FOR MY VILLAGE

IN KENYA.

I SAID, SWEETHEART, GET US

YOUR INFORMATION AND WE

WOULD LOVE TO SEE IF WE CAN

DO SOMETHING TO HELP YOU.

THIS WOMAN THAT I MET,

JANET BAKER, WAS THE HEAD OF

A CHARITY THAT RAISES MONEY

SO CBN CAN DIG WELLS AROUND

THE WORLD.

BUT IN MORENGA, IT IS SO

DRY, WELLS MIGHT BE HUNDREDS

OF FEET DEEP.

IT SEEMS IT WOULD BE

IMPOSSIBLE TO DIG A WELL

THERE.

AND AS HARD AS IT LOOKED, I

KNEW THERE IS A GOD THAT

NOTHING IS HARD FOR HIM.

IN TIME, THE MONEY WAS

RAISED AND THE DEEP WELL WAS

DUG.

GABRIEL GOES BACK TO KENYA

EVERY YEAR TO VISIT A CHURCH

HE STARTED IN MORENGA.

HE WAS THERE WHEN THE WATER

FLOWED FOR THE FIRST TIME.

GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU THE

LIVING WATER OF ETERNAL

LIFE.

THE WELL WAS DEDICATED TO

GOD.

HE TOLD ME STORIES OF THE

CELEBRATION AND THE

REJOICING.

I GOT WATER THREE TIMES

THAT DAY.

WE WERE LAUGHING AND PUSHING

EACH OTHER TO SEE WHO WOULD

BE THE FIRST TO GET WATER.

I LIKE THIS STORY, BUT TO

ME THE PEOPLE SEEMED SO

DISTANT.

NOW, AFTER 12 YEARS IN THE

U.S., I'M RETURNING TO

MORENGA TO SEE THIS MIRACLE

THAT THE LORD HAS DONE.

I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO

EXPECT WHEN WE ARRIVED IN

THE VILLAGE.

WOULD ANYONE REMEMBER ME?

DID THEY CARE THAT I HAD

COME HOME?

WOULD ANYONE COME TO WELCOME

ME?

I WILL BE PRAYING THAT

GOD WILL BLESS HER, THAT HE

WILL JUST LET HER GET SO

EXCITED IN KNOWING THAT HER

FAITHFULNESS BROUGHT IT ALL

ABOUT.

*

I WAS SO SURPRISED.

I DID NOT KNOW WHETHER TO

DANCE OR CRY.

[SINGING]

I WISH ALL THESE PEOPLE

THAT ARE HERE TODAY, AS MUCH

AS THEY HAVE WATER, THEY CAN

ALLOW JESUS TO BE THEIR

SAVIOR.

WHAT A BLESSING.

WATER AS COME TO A DRY

PLACE.

WE HAVE SEEN A MIRACLE OF

GOD.

I HAVE SO MUCH MORE FREE

TIME NOW.

I MAKE THINGS TO SELL IN THE

MARKETPLACE AND I HAVE TIME

TO WORK IN THE FIELDS.

OUR ANIMALS ARE HEALTHY

BECAUSE THEY HAVE WATER TO

DRINK.

AND WE CAN ALL GIVE WATER TO

OUR CHILDREN WITHOUT

WORRYING THAT THEY WILL GET

SICK.

GOD IN HEAVEN SENT US THIS

WATER BECAUSE OF HER

PRAYERS.

I SPEND A LOT OF TIME

WATERING THE GARDENS NEXT TO

MY HUSBAND'S CHURCH, AND I

TALK TO THE WOMEN OF THE

VILLAGE WHENEVER I COULD.

SOMETIMES I COULD NOT HELP

BUT CRY.

THIS IS JUST BECAUSE OF

GOD'S LOVE.

IT TAKES A LOT OF TIME TO

MAKE CORNBREAD FOR MY

FAMILY.

JUST SEPARATING IT IS HARD,

BUT I'M HAPPY TO DO IT.

AND BECAUSE OF THE WATER

WELL, I HAVE THE TIME.

I USED TO THINK ABOUT WATER,

EVEN WHILE I WAS TEACHING.

NOW I CAN FOCUS ON EDUCATING

THE CHILDREN.

I HAVE A LOT MORE ENERGY.

AND I CAN TEACH ALL DAY.

THE CHILDREN ARE HEALTHY AND

DO NOT MISS SCHOOL.

TRULY THIS IS A GIFT FROM

GOD.

TODAY THE WOMEN OF

MORENGA WORK IN THE FIELDS,

DIGGING, PLANTING, AND

WORKING, KNOWING THAT SEEDS

WILL BEAR GOOD FRUITS.

THERE IS A LOT OF LAND

AROUND THE CHURCH.

WE DREAM THAT IN THE FUTURE

THERE WILL BE A CLINIC HERE,

AND PERHAPS A CHRISTIAN

ACADEMY TO TEACH THE YOUNG

PEOPLE ABOUT THE WORD OF

GOD.

WHEN I RETURNED HOME TO THE

UNITED STATES, PART OF MY

HEART WILL REMAIN IN KENYA.

THESE ARE MY PEOPLE.

THIS IS MY FAMILY, AND I

LOVE THEM.

I WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY

FOR ELIZABETH, CHRISTINA,

AND THE OTHERS.

AND FOR US, GOD WILL WORK

EVEN GREATER MIRACLES HERE.

Pat: THAT'S THE STORY

OF A MIRACLE.

I JUST THINK JANICE BAKER IS

ONE THE SWEETEST LADIES YOU

HAVE EVER MET IN YOUR LIFE.

SHE JUST BUBBLES OVER.

AND HER PASSION IS TO BRING

CLEAN WATER TO VILLAGES JUST

LIKE THE ONE YOU SAW.

THESE LADIES RAISE MORE

MONEY.

YOU CANNOT BELIEVE IT.

EVERYWHERE THEY GO, THEY'RE

WONDERFUL.

THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT CBN DOES.

WE HAVE "OPERATION

BLESSING," AND WE HAVE ALL

KINDS OF OTHER THINGS,

"ORPHANS' PROMISE." BUT IF

YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, WE

HAVE A THING WE'D LIKE TO

GIVE YOU.

IT'S CALLED "LIVING UNDER

GOD'S BLESSING."

AND IT IS A MESSAGE THAT I

GAVE AT THE FEAST OF

TABERNACLES OVER IN

JERUSALEM SEVERAL YEARS

AGO.

AND IT WAS REALLY AN

ANOINTING OF GOD.

I COULD HARDLY STAND UP

THERE WAS SUCH POWER IN THAT

ROOM.

AND THAT MESSAGE IS ON

TAPE.

AND THEN YOU HAVE SOMETHING,

A TEACHING FROM GORDON.

SO CALL IN.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE, 65

CENTS?

YOU COULD BRING LIFE-GIVING

WATER TO A VILLAGE.

Wendy: I'M GOING TO BE

WITH JANICE THIS WEEKEND IN

LOUISIANA, AND WE'LL BE

HAVING ANOTHER AUCTION, AND

WE'RE GOING TO BE RAISING

MONEY FOR WELLS ALL OVER THE

WORLD, WHEREVER THERE IS A

NEED.

TO HEAR EMILY'S STORY, SHE

IS RIGHT OVER AT THE

FOUNDER'S INN --

Pat: AND SHE IS PRAYING

AND PRAYING.

GOD IS WONDERFUL.

YOU'VE GOT SOME QUESTIONS.

LET'S GO FOR IT.

Wendy: BURT WRITES, "I

SUPPORT ISRAEL, BUT I HAVE

NOTICED A LARGE ONLINE

COMMUNITY THAT REFERS TO

ZIONISM AS RACISM.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE

ZIONISM, AND IS IT RIGHT TO

BE A ZIONIST?"

Pat: THAT WAS THE THING

THAT THE ARABS AND THE

UNITED NATIONS GOT A

RESOLUTION A LITTLE WHILE

AGO -- WELL, IT WAS YEARS

AGO, 10 OR 15 YEARS AGO OR

MORE, THAT CONDEMNED ZIONISM

AS RACISM.

IT WAS ONE OF THOSE THINGS I

STOOD FORMALLY AGAINST IT.

ZIONISM IS -- THE IDEA I

WILL REBUILD ZION.

ZION IS THE CAPITAL OF THE

KING OF DAVID, THE CITADEL

OF ZION.

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE BOY, IT

WAS ONE OF THOSE BAPTIST

THINGS -- DID YOU EVER SING

THAT, WE'RE MATCHING TO

ZION, THE BEAUTIFUL CITY OF

GOD?

Wendy: NO.

Pat: THAT USED TO BE

ONE OF THE THINGS WE WOULD

SING.

ZION IS NOT RACISM, BUT IT

HAS BEEN USED BY THE UNITED

NATIONS AND OTHERS AS SOME

KIND OF VIAL PLOT.

IT IS NOT A PLOT.

ZION WAS THE PLACE OF DAVID

THE KING.

Wendy: ALENA

WRITES, "I'M 23 AND MY MOM

IS 43.

FOR ALMOST A YEAR SHE HASN'T

BEEN FEELING WELL.

WE'VE BEEN TO DOCTORS SO

MANY TIMES AND CAN'T FIND

WHAT IS WRONG.

A FEW DAYS AGO, MY AUNT WAS

AT A PRAYER MEETING, AND

THERE WAS A WORD THAT GOD

WILL TAKE AWAY HER PAIN, BUT

HE WILL NOT HEAL HER.

CAN THIS BE TRUE?

WE BELIEVE IN A GREAT

HEALER.

WHY WOULD GOD SPEAK THROUGH

SOMEONE LIKE THAT?"

Pat: IF YOU READ THE

APOSTLE PAUL, HE SAYS

DESPISE NOT PROPHECY.

WHY WOULD ANYONE DESPISE

IT?

BECAUSE OF CRAZY WORDS LIKE

THIS THAT COME FORTH.

I DON'T KNOW IF THAT PERSON

WAS ANOINTED OF GOD, OR JUST

SPEAKING OUT OF HER MIND.

Wendy: IT DOESN'T SOUND

LIKE GOD, DOES IT?

Pat: NO, IT DOESN'T.

GOD WON'T HEAL YOU -- SURE.

IF IT IS NOT OF THE WORD, I

DON'T BELIEVE IT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY

EXCEPT DESPISE NOT

PROPHECY.

THERE ARE FALSE WORDS --

PEOPLE CAN START OFF

PROPHETIC, AND THEN IT

LAPSES OFF INTO THEIR OWN

IMAGINATION.

HAVE YOU TO TEST THE SPIRITS

TO SEE WHICH IS OF GOOD.

AND YOU BEGIN TO TEST WHAT

IS BEING SAID.

THERE WAS A WOMAN WHO CAME

TO JOHN WESLEY, AND SHE

SAID, I HAD A REVELATION

ABOUT YOU.

AND HE SAID, WHAT IS IT?

AND SHE SAID, THE REVELATION

WAS YOU WERE BEDDED DOWN

WITH A WHORE.

AND HE LOOKED AT HER AND

SAID, WOMAN, THE LORD DIDN'T

SEND YOU.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: THIS WOMAN -- IT

IS THE FALSE PROPHET.

RYAN WRITES, "I'M A

YOUNG MINISTER AND I'M 20

YEARS OLD.

I'VE BEEN PREACHING SINCE I

WAS 14.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON

YOUNG MINISTERS?"

Pat: I THINK IT IS THE

PASSION.

THE EARLY PEOPLE IN NEW

ENGLAND TALKED ABOUT BEATING

THE OIL.

YOU WANT THE OIL OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT, BUT YOU DO NEED TO

TEM PATRIOTEMPER IT WITH

WISDOM.

THERE ARE A LOT OF YOUNG

PEOPLE WHO GO AROUND AND

THEY HAVEN'T A CLUE ABOUT

THEOLOGY, THEY HAVEN'T A

CLUE ABOUT HISTORY, AND THEY

DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE

TALKING ABOUT.

AND THEY GET THE CROWDS ALL

EMPASSIONED.

I'M ALL FOR YOUNG PREAMPS,

BU PREACHERS, BUT YOU NEED

TO STUDY.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GO TO SOME

PLACE THAT DOESN'T PREACH

THE WORD.

BUT YOU DO NEED TO BE

INSTRUCTED IN THE BIBLE SO

THAT YOU'RE MINISTRY WILL

HAVE A LASTING IMPACT.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY AS

POWER MINUTE FROM ISAIAH:

"FOR I WILL POUR WATER ON

HIM WHO IS THIRSTY AND

FLOODS ON THE DRY GROUND.

I WILL POUR MY SPIRIT ON

YOUR DESCENDENTS AND MY

BLESSING ON YOUR

OFFSPRING."

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
