Hear one father’s response to the song “Rude”, by Magic. Read Transcript


Gordon: THE HIT SONG

AND IT'S PARODY.

*

Gordon: THE STORY

BEHIND THE RUDE VIRAL VIDEO

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

ON "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE,"

WE USE TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY

FOR EACH OTHER AND EXPLORE

TOPICS THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

WELL, WELCOME TO THIS SHOW.

LOVE IT IS OR LOATHE IT, THE

SONG "RUDE" BY MAGIC SPENT

WEEKS ON TOP OF THE CHARTS.

IN THE SONG, A MAN ASKS FOR

A FATHER'S BLESSING TO MARRY

HIS DAUGHTER.

AND WHEN THAT YOUNG MAN'S

REQUEST IS DENIED, HE IS

SHOCKED.

SO HE RESPONDS BY CALLING

THE FATHER RUDE.

Terry: NOT EVERYONE

AGREES WITH THE LYRICS OR

THE YOUNG MAN'S JUDGMENT.

ONE LEADER DECIDED TO PARODY

THAT SONG AND WRITE IT FROM

THE FATHER'S PERSPECTIVE.

AND MILLIONS OF HITS LATER,

HIS VIDEO HAS CAUSED QUITE A

STIR.

*

* I'M SEEKING PERMISSION TO

MARRY MY PRINCESS *

* SO WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR

BIG HEAD *

* THE FIRST TIME I MET

YOU *

* THE ANSWER'S NO

* YOU SAY YOU WANT MY

DAUGHTER FOR THE REST OF

YOUR LIFE *

* YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE MORE

THAN BURGERS AND FRIES *

* SON, YOU'RE 28, DON'T YOU

THINK IT'S TIME *

* WHY YOU GOTTA CALL ME

RUDE *

* DOING WHAT A DAD SHOULD

DO *

* KEEP HER FROM A FOOL LIKE

YOU *

* AND YOU'LL MARRY HER ANY

WAY *

* MARRY THAT GIRL, AND I'LL

MAKE YOU GO AWAY *

* MARRY THAT GIRL

Gordon: ALL RIGHT,

TERRY, WHAT DO YOU THINK

ABOUT ALL OF THIS

CONTROVERSY?

Terry: I'M TOTALLY WITH

THE DAD.

Gordon: YOU ARE?

Terry: I THINK WHAT HE

SAYS IS TRUE, PART OF WHAT A

DAD IS SUPPOSED TO DO IS TO

PROTECT HIS DAUGHTER, EVEN

FROM HER OWN FOOLISHNESS.

WHO OF US HASN'T BEEN

FOOLISH AT THAT AGE.

Gordon: YEAH.

WHEN I WAS 18 OR 19, I

DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE.

Terry: YEAH.

I WASN'T THAT GREAT AT 25.

Gordon: AND MOST

PEOPLE, WHEN THEY'RE GETTING

MARRIED, HAVE NO IDEA WHAT

YOU'RE IN FOR.

AND THEN HAVING CHILDREN,

AGAIN, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT

YOU'RE IN FOR.

IT'S WORK.

I HAD NO IDEA HOW SELL

SELFISH I WAS UNTIL I GOT

MARRIED.

AND THEN THERE WAS A WHOLE

OTHER LEVEL WHEN I HAD

CHILDREN.

AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN

EVERYTHING ABOUT ME WAS

THEIRS.

IT WASN'T MINE ANYMORE.

Terry: IT'S AN

EYE-OPENER.

Gordon: I WAITED UNTIL

I WAS 30 TO HAVE CHILDREN.

AND I THOUGHT I WAS READY.

AND YOU'RE NOT.

Terry: I'M NOT SURE YOU

CAN EVER BE READY, YOU

KNOW.

I MEAN, I THINK PEOPLE SORT

OF TRY OUT MARRIAGE OUT

TODAY BEFORE THEY MAKE THE

COMMITMENT.

AND UNTIL YOU'RE IN IT AND

YOU ARE GIVING OF YOURSELF

TO THE OTHER PERSON ON A

REGULAR BASIS, OR

APPARENTLY PARENTING, AS

YOU TALKED ABOUT IT, I DON'T

THINK YOU'RE TOTALLY

PREPARED.

Gordon: BUT ISN'T IT A

MISTAKE GOING INTO IT

THINKING YOU CAN GET OUT?

Terry: OH, SURE.

Gordon: BECAUSE

MARRIAGE USUALLY LEADS TO

CHILDREN, AND CHILDREN NEED

TWO PARENTS.

Terry: EXACTLY WHAT

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT IS THE

REASON THAT A WISE DAUGHTER

AT LEAST HAS DISCOURSE WITH

HER PARENTS ABOUT THIS

SUBJECT.

Gordon: SHOULD WE GO

BACK TO THE DOWERY SYSTEM,

AND ARRANGED MARRIAGES AND

WE'LL CHOOSE FOR YOU?

Terry: WELL, NO.

BUT WHEN I WAS IN INDIA A

NUMBER OF YEARS AGO, I HAD

TWO MEN WHO WERE INVOLVED IN

THE MINISTRY, AND ONE

MARRIED IN A LOVE MATCH, AND

ANOTHER HAD MARRIED A WIFE

WHO WAS PICKED OUT BY HIS

PARENTS.

AND HE SAID MY PARENTS KNOW

ME MORE THAN I KNOW MYSELF,

AND THEY LOVE ME MORE THAN

ANYONE ELSE, AND THEY WOULD

NEVER CHOOSE SOMEONE WHO

WOULDN'T BE A GOOD PARTNER.

AND THE OTHER GUY WHO

MARRIED BY CHOICE WAS

ACTUALLY STRUGGLING A LITTLE

BIT.

I'M NOT SAYING WE SHOULD GO

BACK TO THAT.

BUT, PARENTS, WHEN YOU

MARRY, YOU BRING SOMEONE

INTO THE FAMILY THAT

EVERYONE HAS TO CONTEND

WITH.

Gordon: EVERY

THANKSGIVING, EVERY

CHRISTMAS, EVERY HOLIDAY AND

VACATION.

MARRIAGE IS MERGER.

Terry: THAT'S A GOOD

LINE, MARRIAGE IS MERGER.

Gordon: WE'VE GOTTEN

SOME FOOTBAL FEEDBACK FROM

YOU.

AND LET'S GO TO JESSICA TO

SEE WHAT THIS THINKS ABOUT

ARRANGED MARRIAGE.

JIM ON Facebook

ASKS, "I'M SURPRISED THAT

THIS SONG IS SO POPULAR.

THE DAD SEEMS OUTDATED AND

ARCHAIC TO ME.

ISN'T IT A DAUGHTER'S CHOICE

ON WHO SHE SHOULD MARRY?"

GORDON?

Gordon: YES, IN OUR

CULTURE, IT IS THE

DAUGHTER'S CHOICE.

AND AS A FATHER, I WOULD

ENCOURAGE YOU TO CHOOSE

WISELY AND LOOK AT THE LONG

HAUL.

IT IS A LOT MORE -- START

THINKING ABOUT FOUR DECADES,

FIVE DECADES, SIX DECADES OF

LIVING TOGETHER.

AND HOW ARE YOU GOING TO

CHANGE OVER TIME.

AND IS THAT NEW LOVE FEELING

GOING TO LAST?

AND THAT'S A VERY DIFFICULT

PERSPECTIVE TO GET, AND ONE

THAT I STILL -- I'VE HEARD

YOU SAY, DON'T TALK TO ME

ABOUT MARRIAGE COUNSELLING

UNTIL YOU'VE BEEN MARRIED 25

YEARS.

Terry: YES.

AND CAN I SAY THAT YOU YOU

ALWAYS THINK IN THAT MOMENT

THIS IS THE MARRIAGE THAT IS

GOING TO LAST.

I SAY TO MY KIDS IT IS

WONDERFUL TO BE IN LOVE, AND

IT IS WONDERFUL TO BE

PASSIONATE ABOUT EACH

OTHER.

JUST KNOW OVER TIME YOU'RE

GOING TO GET TO THE

NITTY-GRITTY, TO THE THINGS

YOU DON'T REALLY LIKE ABOUT

EACH OTHER, AND DO YOU HAVE

THE STAYING POWER WITH THIS

PERSON?

AS YOU SAID, I'M NOT SURE

ANY OF US CAN REALLY GIVE AN

HONEST ANSWER TO THAT WHEN

WE'RE CAUGHT UP IN THE

PASSION OF THE MOMENT AND

WE'RE IN LOVE.

BUT CAN I SAY, ALSO, JIM,

THE DAD IS PAYING FOR THE

WEDDING, SO HE OUGHT TO HAVE

SOME KIND OF A WORD IN

THAT.

Gordon: SOME KIND OF

SAY AS TO WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

ALL RIGHT, THE BUCK STOPS

HERE.

LET'S GO BACK TO JESSICA FOR

ANOTHER QUESTION.

VICKI WRITES IN, "I LOVE

THIS VIDEO.

OUR DAUGHTER IS 18 YEARS OLD

AND IS OBSESSED WITH BOYS.

MY HUSBAND HAS TRIED TO STOP

HER DATING, BUT SHE IS

CONVINCED HER BOYFRIEND IS

THE ONE.

HOW CAN WE MAKE HER SEE THAT

HER DAD IS RIGHT?"

GORDON?

Gordon: I'M GOING TO

THROW THIS ONE OVER TO YOU.

Terry: JESS, WHEN I WAS

IN HIGH SCHOOL AND I WAS

DATING SOMEONE I THOUGHT IT

WAS THE BE ALL AND END ALL,

I REMEMBER WRITING MY NAME

WITH HIS LAST NAME.

GIRLS DO THAT KIND OF

STUFF.

Gordon: NOT YOU,

TERRY?

Terry: YEAH, SADLY.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: IT'S CONFESSIONS

TIME.

Gordon: WAS HE THE

ONE?

Terry: OH, HECK NO.

HE WASN'T THE ONE AFTER A

WHILE.

SOMETIMES IN LIFE, I DON'T

KNOW IF YOU'RE DAUGHTER IS

GOING ON TO SCHOOL OR SHE IS

GETTING A JOB -- SHE'S 18

YEARS OLD, SO SOME TIME IS

GOING TO LAPSE BETWEEN HER

THINKING THIS IS THE ONE AND

FINDING THE ONE.

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO JUST

LOVE THEM ALONG THE

PASSAGE.

Gordon: HOW DO YOU TELL

SOMEBODY AT THAT AGE, WHO IS

INVOLVED TO THE POINT OF

WRITING THEIR NAME WITH

HIS -- HOW DO YOU TELL THEM

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN REALITY AND

ROMANCE.

Terry: WELL, I THINK

YOU -- THE KEY THING TO ME

IN PARENTING IS TO ALWAYS,

ALWAYS, ALWAYS KEEP THE DOOR

OF COMMUNICATION OPEN.

SO HOW YOU SAY THAT, I

THINK, MEANS EVERYTHING.

SO IF YOU CAN SAY IT SO IT

IS GIVE AND TAKE, GENERAL

CONVERSATION, AND WHAT DO

YOU THINK, AND HERE ARE MY

THOUGHTS ON THAT, AND THIS

IS WHAT I EXPERIENCED,

RATHER THAN YOU ARE NOW

GOING TO FIND OUT ABOUT THE

TRUTH OF LIFE.

Gordon: YOU ARE SO

GROUNDED.

Terry: CAN I TELL YOU,

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO LISTEN

TO YOU ANYWAY, BUT HOPEFULLY

THERE WILL BE SOME RESIDUAL

THAT WILL STAY IN THE BACK

OF THE BRAIN AND AT SOME

POINT THEY'LL REMEMBER.

Gordon: WE'VE GOT ONE

MORE QUESTION.

GORDON, BECKY SAYS, "I

DON'T GET WHY PEOPLE ARE

OFFENDED WITH THIS VIDEO.

MY DAD DIDN'T CARE WHO I

MARRIED, AND I WISH HE HAD

PROTECTED ME.

NOW I AM DIVORCED, AND I'M

PRAYING FOR A MAN OF GOD WHO

WILL HONOR MY HEAVENLY

FATHER.

WHAT CAN I DO TO FIND A MAN

WHO LOVES GOD?"

GORDON?

Gordon: YOU'RE PROBABLY

GOING TO FIND HIM IN A

CHURCH OR ON A MISSION

FIELD.

YOU'LL KNOW HIM BY HIS

FRUITS.

MAKE SURE -- I COUNSEL THIS

TO EVERYONE.

MAKE SURE YOU KNOW THEIR

PRIMARY BEHAVIOR PATTERNS

BECAUSE THOSE AREN'T GOING

TO CHANGE.

THE THING I'VE LEARNED ABOUT

PERSONALITIES WITH ALL THREE

OF MY CHILDREN, IS THEY'RE

BORN THAT WAY.

THEY HAVE THAT, AND THAT'S

INGRAINED IN THEM.

SO IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A

MAN OF GOD, HONOR THAT AND

GOD WILL HONOR YOU FOR

WANTING THAT.

BUT MAKE SURE YOU SPEND

ENOUGH TIME TO REALLY FIND

OUT WHAT ARE THE INNER

MOTIVATIONS OF HIS HEART.

AND IS HIS HEART SET ON

MINISTRY.

YOU CAN KNOW THEM BY THEIR

FRUITS.

WELL, FOR MORE INFORMATION

ON BENJI HOWARD, THE FATHER

FEATURED IN THAT VIDEO, ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

700clubinteractive.com, AND

WE THANK HIM FOR LETTING US

USE THAT.

AND YOU CAN FIND LINKS TO

HIS YouTube AND HIS

WEBSITE ON OUR SITE.

STILL AHEAD, WE'RE GOING TO

BE PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

FAMILY, PLUS A COUPLE WHO

WERE TOLD TO TERMINATE THEIR

PREGNANCY.

I SAID, WELL, I'LL DEAL

WITH WHATEVER COMES.

HE SAID, YOU SAY THAT NOW,

BUT YOU DON'T KNOW HOW HARD

IT REALLY IS GOING TO BE.

Gordon: HOW THEY WON

THE BATTLE FOR THEIR SON'S

LIFE AFTER THIS.

Gordon: IDA WENT TO

EIGHT DIFFERENT DOCTORS, AND

THEY ALL SAID THE SAME

THING, ULTRASOUND SHOWED

THAT IDA'S UNBORN CHILD HAD

A HEART THAT WAS TOO SMALL.

SO THEY SUGGESTED AN

ABORTION.

BUT IDA AND HER HUSBAND TOOK

A DIFFERENT APPROACH.

Reporter: OCTOBER 17,

2008, WAS IDA'S BIRTHDAY.

SHE AND HER HUSBAND, JOHN,

WERE EXPECTING THEIR SECOND

CHILD.

AND THE COUPLE HAD GONE IN

FOR A ROUTINE ULTRASOUND.

THEY LOOKED A LITTLE

CONCERNED ABOUT ONE ISSUE,

AND THEY WANTED TO FIND OUT

MORE ABOUT THAT.

Reporter: AS THE FAMILY

PREPARED TO GO TO DINNER

THAT NIGHT TO CELEBRATE

IDA'S BIRTHDAY, THEY

RECEIVED A CALL FROM IDA'S

DOCTOR, WHOM INFORMED HER

THAT HER SON HAD HYPER

PLASTIC LEFT HEART

SYNDROME.

WE OPENED UP THE COMPUTER

AND STARTING READ ABOUT IT,

AND IT WAS HORRIBLE,

HORRIBLE NEWS.

WE WERE DEVASTATED.

THE DOCTORS WERE SPEAKING

TO US ABOUT ALL OF THE

DIFFERENT CHROMOSOMEAL

ISSUES, AND EVEN DOWN

SYNDROME.

Reporter: THE DOCTORS

SUGGESTED SHE TERMINATE HER

BABY.

I SAID, WE'RE NOT GOING

TO TERMINATE THIS BABY.

I SAID, WE'LL DEAL WITH

WHATEVER COMES.

GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF THIS.

AND HE SAID, YOU SAY THAT

NOW, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW HOW

HARD IT REALLY IS GOING TO

BE.

Reporter: THAT EVENING

IDA'S FATHER, WHO WAS OUT OF

TOWN ON BUSINESS, TURNED ON

"700 CLUB."

I HAPPENED TO TURN ON THE

TELEVISION.

AND THE END OF "700 CLUB"

WAS ON.

AND TERRY MEEUWSEN WAS

SPEAKING AT THE END OF THE

PROGRAM.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU'VE GOTTEN A DIAGNOSIS --

YOU'RE PREGNANT, AND YOU GOT

THE DIAGNOSIS THAT THERE IS

SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOUR

BABY.

IT HAS EVEN BEEN SUGGESTED

THAT YOU ABORT IT.

BUT TRUST GOD.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING IS THE

PROBLEM IS NOT THE PROBLEM.

Reporter: THEY WENT ON

LINE AND CLAIMED THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE FOR THEIR BABY.

OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS,

THEY ENLISTED OTHER PRAYER

PARTNERS AND THE PARTNERS AT

CBN TO STAND WITH THEM.

EVERY TIME THERE WAS A

DOUBT, GOD WOULD PLACE

SOMEONE WITH ENCOURAGING

WORDS OR A BIBLE VERSE THAT

THE WORDS WOULD JUST JUMP

OUT AT ME AND I KNEW GOD WAS

SPEAKING TO ME.

Reporter: AS IDA'S

PREGNANCY ADVANCED, THE

DOCTORS WARNED HER TO

PREPARE FOR A SERIES OF

SURGERIES AFTER BIRTH.

THEY WERE SUGGESTING THAT

WE NEED TO DO A THREE-STAGE

SURGERY ON HIM TO MAKE HIS

HEART WORK ON HIS RIGHT

SIDE.

EVERY ULTRASOUND WE WENT TO,

THEY WOULD PRETTY MUCH SAY

THE SAME THING.

Reporter: BUT THE

FAMILY CONTINUED TO BELIEVE

GOD.

NO MATTER WHAT THE TESTS

WERE SHOWING AT THE DOCTORS'

OFFICES, MY GOD WAS BIGGER

THAN THESE TESTS.

AND HE GAVE US THAT PROMISE

HE WAS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF

HIM AND HEAL HIM.

MY PRAYER SPECIFICALLY

WAS, LORD, GIVE THIS CHILD A

WHOLE HEART SO HE CAN

WHOLEHEARTEDLY SERVE YOU IN

THE FUTURE.

Reporter: LITTLE JOHN

WAS BORN ON MARCH 10th,

2009.

AND THE DOCTORS PREPARED THE

COUPLE FOR WHAT LAY AHEAD.

THE WHOLE ISSUE WITH JOHN

WAS HIS MITRO VALVE.

WHEN HE WAS BORN, THEY WENT

BACK AND DID THE ECHOGRAM ON

HIS HEART, AND THEY FOUND

THAT THE MIGHT TR MITRO

VALVE WAS STILL A LITTLE

SMALL.

THERE WAS ABOUT A SIX-DAY

WAITING PERIOD BEFORE THE

SURGERY WAS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

I ASKED ONE OF THE PEDIATRIC

CARDIOLOGISTS IF THEY WOULD

DO ANOTHER ECHOGRAM THE

NIGHT BEFORE.

AND HE WAS HESITANT AND

SAID, THERE WAS NO NEED

BECAUSE THE MITRO VALVE

DOESN'T GROW.

Reporter: THE NEXT DAY,

LITTLE JOHN WENT INTO

SURGERY AND HE WAS TAKEN OFF

THE HEART MACHINE AFTER JUST

29 MINUTES.

THEY CAME IN AND SAID

EVERYTHING WENT FINE WITH

THE SURGERY.

AND I ASKED HIM WHAT ABOUT

THE MITRO VALVE.

AND HE SAID, THE MITRO VALVE

MEASURED AT LEAST A NINE

MILLIMETER, SO IT WAS A

LITTLE LARGER THAN WE

EXPECTED IT TO BE.

WE WERE SO REJOICEFUL.

AND WE KNEW BECAUSE THE LORD

SAID IT IS NOT GOING TO BE

WHAT THE DOCTORS SAID IT WAS

GOING TO BE.

Reporter: TODAY LITTLE

JOHN IS A PERFECTLY HEALTHY

4-YEAR-OLD.

IDA AND JOHN SAY THEIR

EXPERIENCE TAUGHT THEM TO

TRULY TRUST GOD.

THIS WHOLE PROCESS

EXPLODED OUR FAITH TO KNOW

HE IS GOING TO DO IT.

WE ALWAYS KNOW HE COULD DO

IT, BUT NOW WE KNOW HE IS

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF US.

WE DON'T LOOK AT OUR

CIRCUMSTANCES.

WE LOOK AT GOD AND WE FOCUS

ON JESUS, AND HIM TELLING

US, HIS PROMISE IN THE WORD,

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH

ME.

I'M WITH YOU ALWAYS.

AND HE'LL NEVER LEAVE US.

Gordon: NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE

IN HIM.

AND TRUST IN HIM AND TRUST

IN HIS UNFAILING LOVE.

WELL, THIS IS "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE" AND WE HAVE

RECEIVED YOUR PRAYER

REQUESTS.

SO LET'S GO OVER TO JESSICA

TO FIND OUT MORE.

WELL, GORDON, LEE POSTS,

"PLEASE PRAY FOR MY NEWBORN,

DAVID, AND HE IS A PREME AND

DOCTORS HAVE ONLY FOUND ONE

KIDNEY."

NANCY SAYS, "NMY SON HAS A

TWO-INCH CYST ON HIS BRAIN.

HE IS HAVING SEIZURES, AND

WE NEED PRAYER FOR HIM TO BE

HEALED."

AND BRANDON WRITES IN,

"PLEASE PRAY FOR MY WIFE AND

OUR UNBORN CHILD.

OUR BABY HAS BEEN BORN WITH

POTTER'S DISEASE.

THE DOCTORS SAY THERE IS NO

HOPE, BUT MY WIFE AND I

BELIEVE THAT GOD CAN HEAL."

GORDON?

Gordon: AND I BELIEVE

THAT GOD CAN HEAL, TOO.

WE'RE GOING TO AGREE, TERRY

AND I ARE GOING TO AGREE,

JESSICA IS GOING TO AGREE,

AND THE BIBLE SAYS IF TWO OR

MORE AGREE TOUCHING

ANYTHING, IT SHALL BE DONE.

SO WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE.

AND JUST RELY ON HIM AND HIS

UNFAILING LOVE, AND HE WILL

WORK MIRACLES BECAUSE HE IS

THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY,

AND FOREVER.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU.

AND FOR THESE THREE, FOR

BRANDON'S BABY, FOR NANCY'S

BABY, FOR LEE'S BABY, WE

JUST LIFT THEM UP TO YOU,

AND WE KNOW THAT YOU NUMBER

THE VERY HAIRS ON THEIR

HEADS.

WE KNOW THAT YOU CARE ABOUT

EVERY CELL IN THEIR BODY.

SO, LORD, STRETCH FORTH YOUR

HAND TO HEAL, TO SET FREE.

LET THERE BE NO

COMPLICATIONS.

LET THERE BE HEALING.

YOU ARE ABLE TO GROW WHAT IS

NOT THERE.

FOR LEE'S BABY, YOU'RE ABLE

TO GROW THAT EXTRA KIDNEY.

YOU'RE ABLE TO CREATE

CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THE

HEMISPHERES OF A BRAIN.

YOU'RE ABLE TO DO EXCEEDING

ABOVE ALL WE COULD EVER ASK

OR THINK.

AND SO WE ASK, BELIEVING IN

YOUR AMAZING LOVE AND

AMAZING POWER.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

ALL IN JESUS' NAME.

TERRY, GOD'S GIVEN YOU

SOMETHING?

Terry: YOU KNOW, THE

LORD IS SO BIG AND SOMETIMES

WE FOCUS ON OUR PROBLEMS.

AND I BELIEVE THAT GOD IS

JUST SAYING, I AM A BIG

GOD.

GIVE ME YOUR PROBLEMS.

I AM ABLE TO TAKE THEM FROM

YOU, AND I AM ABLE TO SOLVE

THEM FOR YOU.

AND SO TODAY JUST GIVE THE

THING THAT'S ON YOUR HEART

TO THE LORD.

WE'RE PRAYING SPECIFICALLY

FOR THESE THREE FAMILIES,

THESE THREE CHILDREN, BUT

THERE ARE MANY OF YOU WITH

BIG SITUATIONS FACING YOU.

LIFT THEM UP TO GOD, AND

THEN LEAVE THEM WITH HIM,

KNOWING HE SEES YOU BEFORE

YOU WERE EVEN FORMED IN YOUR

MOTHER'S WOMB.

NOTHING THAT HAPPENS IN YOUR

LIFE IS A SURPRISE TO HIM.

Gordon: JESSICA, GOD

GAVE YOU SOMETHING, TOO?

YES.

THERE IS SOMEBODY WATCHING,

AND YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS

IN YOUR THROAT.

FATHER, WE DECLARE THAT YOUR

KINGDOM COME AND YOUR THROAT

IS HEALED, AND SOMEONE ELSE,

THERE IS A PROBLEM IN YOUR

AORTA, AND WE DECLARE

HEALING IN JESUS' NAME.

GORDON?

Gordon: LORD, WE THANK

YOU FOR IT, AND WE RECEIVE

IT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED, YOU

HAVE A GOOD REPORT, A

HEALING, DELIVERANCE, WE

WANT TO HEAR YOUR STORY, SO

GIVE US A CALL.

1-888-777-1999.

JUST A REMINDER, WE'RE HERE

FOR YOU.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE

BELIEVE IN PREVAILING

PRAYER.

SO IF YOU NEED PRAYER, IT IS

OUR HONOR AND PRIVILEGE TO

PRAY FOR YOU.

1-888-777-1999.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

RESCUING ORPHANS FROM THE

MIDDLE OF A WAR ZONE.

THAT'S NEXT.

Terry: THE CONFLICT

BETWEEN RUSSIA AND UKRAINE

HAS DOMINATED THE HEADLINES,

BUT YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE A

SIDE OF THE STORY THAT YOU

WON'T SEE IN THE NEWS.

THE INNOCENT WOMEN AND

CHILDREN WHO ARE CAUGHT IN

THE CROSS-FIRE.

Reporter: THIS BUILDING

IN SLOVENSK IS AN

ORPHANAGE.

ONCE IT WAS FILLED WITH

CHILDREN.

TODAY IT IS EERILY QUIET,

WITH POT MARKS, BURNED OUT

WALLS, AND FLOORS STREWN

WITH DEBRIS.

Through Translator:

EVERYBODY SHOOTS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN

THE CITY.

THERE WAS A LOT OF BLOOD,

AND IT WAS VERY, VERY

SCARY.

Reporter: THE CHILDREN

DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THE

MASKED MEN IN GREEN CAME

WITH GUNS AND GRENADES.

ALL THEY KNOW IS THAT THEY

ARE TERRIFIED.

MY 5-YEAR-OLD CHILD BEGAN

TO SCREAM AND PRAY, MOMMY,

ONLY GOD CAN HELP US.

GOD, PROTECT US, PLEASE.

Reporter: WHEN THE

INSURGENTS SWARMED THE CITY,

THIS ORPHANAGE, PARTIALLY

SUPPORTED BY CBN'S "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" BECAME A TARGET.

THE CHILDREN INSIDE,

POTENTIAL HUMAN SHIELDS.

THAT'S WHEN "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," IN PARTNERSHIP

WITH "THE MINISTER OF

JEREMIAH'S HOPE" WENT TO

ACTION.

VEHICLES IMMOBILIZED.

FOOD AND EXPIE SUPPLIES

WERE PACKED.

17 CHILDREN WERE PACKED INTO

THE VEHICLES.

WITH EVERYONE SAFELY ON

BOARD, THE DANGEROUS RESCUE

MISSION BEGANMENT.

> BEGAN.

THANKFULLY THAT RESCUE

MISSION BEGAN BECAUSE DAYS

AFTER, THE RUSSIAN

SEPARATISTS TOOK OVER THE

CHILDREN'S HOME, AND THERE

WAS FIGHTING GOING ON AND

WINDOWS WERE SHOT OUT.

WE WERE SCARED WHEN WE

WENT TO THE CHECK-POINT.

THEY WERE FIRING AT CARS.

THIS WAS THE FIRST

CHECK-POINT, AND THEN THE

SECOND AND THIRD, AND THEN

FREEDOM.

EVERYONE SHOUTED, HURRAY!

Reporter: 12 HOURS

LATER, THE REFUGEES ARRIVED

SAFELY AT THEIR TEMPORARY

HOME.

AFTER A GREAT MEAL AND A

NAP, THE REFUGEES RECEIVED

SOME UNEXPECTED VISITORS.

GIZMO AND THE STAFF OF CBN

ARRIVED FOR AN AFTERNOON OF

FUN, GAMES, AND WHAT ELSE?

BRAND NEW "SUPERBOOK"

EPISODES.

THE KIDS ENJOYED IT VERY

MUCH.

THEY WERE SINGING SONGS,

DANCING, AND BEING HAPPY.

Reporter: ONE WEEK

LATER, A SIMILAR RESCUE WAS

ORGANIZED TO TRANSPORT THE

ORPHANS OF MARIOPAL OUT OF

THE WAR ZONE.

EVERYTHING HAS BEEN GOOD

SINCE WE LEFT THIS TERRIBLE

WAR.

Reporter: THE CHILDREN

AND THEIR CARE-GIVERS FROM

SLOVENSK AND MARIOPAL SAY

THANKS TO CBN AND "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

MORE THAN THANK YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING

SUCH GOOD CARE OF US AND OF

OUR CHILDREN.

Terry: WE COVET YOUR

PRAYERS FOR THAT AREA IN

UKRAINE.

THERE IS STILL SO MUCH

CONFLICT THERE, AND A LOT OF

CONFUSION.

BUT WE ARE PRAYING FOR THE

FREEDOM OF THE PEOPLE.

WE'RE PRAYING FOR THE

WELL-BEING OF THOSE WHO ARE

STILL TRAPPED THERE.

MANY OF OUR CHILDREN HAVE

GOTTEN OUT, AND WE ARE SO

THANKFUL TO THE LORD FOR

THAT.

THEY'RE BEING HOUSED IN SOME

INSTANCES IN PRIVATE HOMES

IN KIEV AND OTHER PLACES IN

THE NORTH AND THE WESTERN

PART OF UKRAINE.

YOU KNOW THE NEED IS GREAT.

THE NEED IS GREAT.

YOU SAW WHAT HAPPENED TO

THAT ORPHANAGE.

CAN YOU IMAGINE KIDS WHO ARE

ALONE AND THEY'RE TRYING TO

DEAL WITH LIFE, AND

SOMETHING THAT BIG COMES

RIGHT INTO THE MIDST OF

THEIR LIVES.

IT IS YOUR GIVING, IT'S YOUR

LOVING AND COMPASSION AND

CARING, THAT HAS ALLOWED US

TO SPEAK INTO THEIR LIVES TO

BEGIN WITH, BUT, SECOND, TO

RESCUE THEM FROM WHAT WAS A

HORRIBLE CONFLICT, A

HORRIBLE SITUATION.

SO WE SAY THANK YOU.
