IT HAS ONE MISSIONARY ON

HER DEATH BED.

NANCY WENT TO WORK ON THE

FRONT LINE, HELPING TO

DISINFECT DOCTORS AND

INSTRUMENTS USED IN THE

CRISIS.

Andrew: THE DEADLY

DISEASE THAT HAS THE WORLD

ON EDGE.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

Gordon: 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.

Andrew: GOOD MORNING,

AND WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

HEADLINES ACROSS THE WORLD

ARE FILLED WITH STORIES

ABOUT EBOLA.

THE OUTBREAK OF THE DEADLY

FEVER HAS OVERWHELMED HEALTH

CARE SYSTEMS.

AND NOW TWO AMERICAN

MISSIONARIES ARE BEING

TREATED FOR IT IN ATLANTA.

CBN NEWS REPORTER HEATHER

CELLS TRAVELLED TO ONE OF

THEIR HOME TOWNS TO FIND OUT

HOW THIS DISEASE IS

AFFECTING THOSE CLOSEST TO

THEM.

Reporter: 59-YEAR-OLD

NANCY WRITEBOL AND HER

HUSBAND, DAVID, AND NO

NEWCOMERS TO THE MISSION

FIELD.

THEY WORKED AROUND THE

WORLD, AND AS OF LAST YEAR,

WITH THE MISSIONS

ORGANIZATION S.I.M. IN

LIBERIA.

THIS WAR-TORN COUNTRY HAS

FEW MODERN DAY COMFORTS AND

IS KNOWN AS A DIFFICULT

MISSION POST.

DAVE AND NANCY WRITEBOL

ARE TWO OF THE MOST HUMBLE

PEOPLE I HAVE EVER MET.

THEIR CONCERN IS FOR SHARING

THE GOSPEL TO THE WORLD.

Reporter: THEIR

MISSION'S PASTOR, JIM

CASWELL, SAYS THE COUPLE

RECENTLY FELT CALLED TO USE

THEIR GIVES IN

ADMINISTRATION AND

ENCOURAGEMENT TO HELP BUILD

UP THIS HOSPITAL.

IT IS DESPERATELY NEEDED IN

A COUNTRY WHERE DISEASE IN

COMMON AND DOCTORS ARE FEW.

IN LIBERIA, THERE ARE 50

DOCTORS FOR FOUR MILLION

PEOPLE.

THEY DON'T HAVE THE

INFRASTRUCTURE BECAUSE OF

THE WARS.

Reporter: NANCY AND HER

HUSBAND FIRST FELT THE CALL

TO THE MISSION FIELD AT A

MISSIONS CONFERENCE HERE AT

THEIR HOME CHURCH IN

CHARLOTTE MORE THAN 20 YEARS

AGO.

THIS SPRING, WHEN EBOLA

BEGAN BREAKING OUT IN

AFRICA, THE CHURCH ASKED

THEM IF THEY WANTED TO COME

HOME.

NANCY AND HER HUSBAND SAID

NO.

WE SAID, DAVE AND NANCY,

LET US BRING YOU HOME.

LET'S WAIT UNTIL IT GETS

SAFER BEFORE YOU RETURN.

AND DAVID AND NANCY REFUSED

TO COME BACK, BECAUSE THEIR

STATEMENT WAS THEY WANTED TO

BE WHERE GOD HAD CALLED

THEM.

Reporter: NOT ONLY DID

THEY SAY, NANCY WENT TO WORK

ON THE FRONT LINES, HELPING

TO DISINFECT DOCTORS AND

INSTRUMENTS USED IN THE

CRISIS.

THAT'S WHAT NANCY WAS

DOING.

WHEN SHE WAS CLEANING THE

INSTRUMENTS BEING USED IN

THE HOSPITALS, SHE IS

SHOWING THE LOVE OF CHRIST

IN A VERY PRACTICAL WAY.

Reporter: THE

S.I.M.PRESIDENT SAYS THE

HOPE NOW IS THEY WRITEBOL

AND BRANTLY WILL RECOVER,

AND RESEARCH AROUND THEIR

TREATMENT AT EMORY HOSPITAL

WILL ULTIMATELY LEAD TO A

CURE.

KENT AND NANCY ARE THE

TYPE OF PEOPLE WHO WOULD

SAY, I'M WILLING TO DO THIS,

SACRIFICE IN ORDER THAT MANY

MORE WILL BE SAVED.

Reporter: AS THE WORLD

HAS WATCHED THIS LITERAL

LIFE AND DEATH BATTLE

UNFOLD, BACK IN CHAR

CHARLOTTE, WRITEBOL'S CHURCH

IS ALSO WATCHING AND

LEARNING.

THE FAITH OF DAVID AND

NANCY SHOWS A MATURITY THAT

I THINK IS TEACHING ALL OF

US.

THEY KNOW THAT GOD CAN MOVE

IN AT ANY TIME AND CAN HEAL

NANCY.

BUT THEY ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT

IF GOD CHOOSES TO CALL HER

HOME, THAT HE IS GOING TO

BRING A HEALING THERE AS

WELL.

AND THAT'S A HEALING THAT WE

ALL HOPE FOR.

Reporter: HEATHER

CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Andrew: JOINING US NOW

TO TALK ABOUT THE VICTIMS OF

EBOLA IS CBN NEWS

CORRESPONDENT HEATHER

CELLS.

WELCOME, HEATHER.

THANKS.

Andrew: THERE IS

CERTAINLY SOME CONTROVERSY

ABOUT BRINGING THEM BACK TO

ATLANTA, ISN'T THERE?

Reporter: WHEN I WAS AT

S.I.M. THERE WAS CONTROVERSY

OUT THERE.

ON THE SURFACE, YOU CAN

UNDERSTAND PEOPLE SAYING,

LOOK, WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU

BRING EBOLA PATIENTS INTO

THIS COUNTRY.

BUT WHAT IS INTERESTING IS

THERE IS NOW A LOT OF

VOICES, FOR INSTANCE

NICHOLAS CRISTOFF IN THE NEW

YORK CITY SAYING THEY SHOULD

BE COMMENTED FOR WHAT

THEY'VE DONE.

THEY WERE TRYING TO CONTAIN

THE DISEASE, AND NOW THEY'RE

IN THE U.S. AND THEY'RE

ACCEPTING AN EXPERIMENTAL

TREATMENT THAT COULD LEAD TO

A CURE.

IN THE END, WE MIGHT HAVE A

LOT TO THANK NANCY AND KENT

FOR.

Andrew: FOR THOSE OF US

CONCERNED ABOUT THEM, HOW

CAN WE HELP?

I THINK RIGHT NOW THE

FORCE IS IN PRAYER.

THERE ARE TWO MAIN AREAS.

ONE IS SIMPLY FOR THE HEALTH

CONCERNS, THE CONTAINMENT,

AND THE MISSIONARIES THAT

ARE THERE.

THERE ARE STILL S.I.M.

MISSIONARIES ON THE GROUND

IN LIBERIA, RIGHT IN THE

MIDST OF THIS FRAY.

THE OTHER THING THAT IS

INTERESTING, NANCY AND KENT

HAVE A PLATFORM THAT HAS

BEEN GIVEN TO THEM.

WHEN IS THE LAST TIME THAT

MISSIONARIES HAVE BEEN

COVERED IN THE NEWS AND

COVERED AGGRESSIVELY.

THIS IS INCREDIBLE TO ME.

AND SO I THINK JUST TO PRAY

FOR THEIR WITNESS BECAUSE

THE MEDIA IS CONTINUING TO

COVER THIS STORY.

Andrew: WHAT STRUCK YOU

THE MOST WHILE YOU WERE IN

CHARLOTTE?

IN THE HUMA HUMILITY OF

NANCY.

SHE WAS LITERALLY CLEANING

INSTRUMENTS USED TO TREAT

EBOLA PATIENTS.

IT WOULD NORMALLY NOT GET

HER ANY ATTENTION, AND NOW

LOOK WHAT HAPPENED.

Andrew: SO OFTEN WE

THINK, ISN'T THAT WONDERFUL,

SOMEONE IS GOING ON A

MISSIONS TRIP.

BUT IT BRINGS TO NEW LIGHT

THE SACRIFICE PEOPLE MAKE

FOR OTHERS.

THAT'S ALSO INTERESTING,

THERE WAS A SERMON THAT KENT

BRANTLY PREACHED, AND HOW HE

WAS PREPARED ALL HIS LIFE

FOR THIS, AND HE HAD NO

HESITATION ABOUT GOING.

HE KNEW THE RISKS, AND HE

WENT KNOWINGLY.

Andrew: THANK YOU,

HEATHER, FOR JOINING US.

IF YOU WANT TO POST YOUR

PRAYERS OR HAVE QUESTIONS,

GO TO

Facebook.com/the700club.

WE'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.

UP NEXT, AN EXOTIC VATION

LEAVES A MO MOM WITH A

TOXIC INFECTION.

IT FELT LIKE I WAS IN A

COMA.

I COULDN'T MOVE, OPEN MY

EYES, OR LIFT MY HEAD.

Andrew: HEAR HOW SHE

SUR VICE.

SURVIVES.

PLUS, ONE EXPERT ANSWERS

QUESTIONS ON EBOLA.

THAT'S COMING UP AFTER

THIS.

Andrew: BEFORE THE

BREAK, WE TOLD YOU ABOUT TWO

PEOPLE IN ATLANTA FIGHTING

FOR THEIR LIVES WITH EBOLA.

JOINING US IS AN INFECTIOUS

DOCTOR.

WELCOME TO THE SHOW,

DOCTOR.

PEOPLE ARE AFRAID.

IT HAS KIND OF SNUCK UP TO A

LOT OF US FROM THE NEWS.

TELL US ABOUT THE DISEASE.

THIS STARTED IN 1976, AND

DEVELOPED IN TWO COUNTRIES,

IN SUDAN AND ZAIRE.

AND NOW IT IS KNOWN AS THE

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF

CONGO.

ABOUT THE SAME YEAR, THEY

FOUND THE CAUSE FOR THAT

SPECIFIC DISEASE WAS A

VIRUS.

NOWADAYS WE KNOW THERE ARE

FIVE VIRUSES, TWO CALLED

SUDAN VIRUS, AND THE OTHER

IS EBOLA VIRUS, BASED ON THE

COUNTRY WHERE THEY WERE

DETECTED.

UNTIL 1976, UNTIL NOW, THERE

WERE ABOUT 23 OUTBREAKS OF

EBOLA.

SO IT GIVES YOU AN IDEA THAT

THIS INFECTION DOES NOT

EXIST ALL OF THE TIME.

IT COMES AND GOES IN

SPURTS.

OVER ALL, THERE ARE ABOUT

3,000 INDIVIDUALS THAT WERE

INFECTED WITH EBOLA.

AND THIS IS OVER A SPAN OF

40 YEARS.

Andrew: WHAT ARE THE

SYMPTOMS?

WHAT DO YOU START TO SEE

HAPPEN?

The Doctor: AT THE

BEGINNING, MOST OF THE

SYMPTOMS ARE LIKE A COLD.

HERE IN THE UNITED STATES,

THAT WOULD BE THE

DIAGNOSIS.

IT REPRESENTS A FEVER,

HEADACHES, CHILLS, AND

MUSCLE PAIN.

Andrew: HOW DO PEOPLE

GET IT?

The Doctor: THE

TRANSMISSION IS RATHER

COMPLICATED.

FIRST OF ALL, YOU NEED THE

VIRUS.

AND IN AFRICA, THE RES

RESERVOIR IS REPRESENTED BY

THE FRUIT BATH.

THEY HAVE TRADITIONS WHERE

THEY LIKE TO EAT THIS, AND

THEY LIKE TO EAT IT

UNDERCOOKED.

AND SOMETIMES THEY MAKE SOUP

ON IT.

ANOTHER WAY TO GET IT IS

THAT THE FRUIT BATHS INFECT

OTHER ANIMALS, LIKE

CHIMPANZEES, AND ANTELOPES.

AND, AGAIN, IN AFRICA, THEY

HAVE A TRADITION TO EAT BUSH

MEAT, WHICH IS A RAW MEAT.

AND THE VIRUS EXISTS IN SUCH

SITUATIONS.

THAT'S HOW HUMANS GET

INFECTED.

Andrew: NOW CURE FOR

THIS.

HOW DO YOU TREAT IT?

The Doctor: THERE IS NO

CURE AS OF NOW.

THE WAY THEY IMPROVE IS

TAKING CARE OF THE

INFECTION.

IT HAS A HIGH MORALITY

RATE.

IT IS ABOUT 50%.

THERE ARE MULTIPLE WAYS OF

TREATING IT.

ONE SUCCESSFUL WAY WAS TO

USE A COMBINATION OF

ANTIBODIES TO TREAT THESE

PATIENTS.

ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO, THERE

WAS AN ARTICLE WHERE THEY

HAD EIGHT INDIVIDUALS

INFECTED WITH EBOLA, AND

THEY TREATED THEM WITH

BLOOD, WITH TRANSFUSIONS OF

BLOOD, FROM INDIVIDUALS WHO

SURVIVED EBOLA.

AND ACTUALLY SEVEN OUT OF

EIGHT PATIENTS SURVIVED.

Andrew: HOW DO YOU FEEL

ABOUT TWO PEOPLE COMING INTO

THE UNITED STATES, INTO

ATLANTA, FOR TREATMENT?

The Doctor: FIRST OF

ALL, LET'S NOT FORGET THESE

ARE TRUE HEROS.

THEY LEFT BEHIND EVERYTHING

THAT THEY LOVE AND CHERISH,

AND THEY WENT THERE TO HELP

OTHER PEOPLE IN NEED.

SO FROM A MORAL AND ETHICAL

POINT OF VIEW, IT IS OUR

DUTY TO HELP THEM.

THEN FROM A CITY POINT OF

VIEW AND A COUNTRY, WE'VE

ALWAYS DONE WHAT IS RIGHT.

WHAT IS RIGHT IS TO HELP

THEM AND PROVIDE THEM WITH

THE BEST CARE.

Andrew: IS THERE A

CONCERN IN YOUR IMMEDIATE

MEDICAL COMMUNITY ABOUT A

PROBLEM IN THE UNITED

STATES?

AN OUTBREAK AND THE UNITED

STATES?

The Doctor: THERE ARE

ALWAYS CONCERNS.

WE CANNOT DIMINISH THESE

CONCERNS.

WE BELIEVE THAT EBOLA WOULD

NOT BE A SERIOUS PROBLEM IN

THE UNITED STATES.

WE DO NOT HAVE A RESERVOIR

TO KEEP THE VIRUS.

WE DO NOT HAVE THE SAME

TRADITIONS THEY HAVE IN

AFRICA.

AND OUR MEDICAL CARE IS MUCH

BETTER.

AND WE WILL BE ABLE TO

PROVIDE SUPPORTIVE CARE TO

ALL PATIENTS AND SEE THEM

THROUGH THIS.

AND IF I MAY USE A

COMPARISON, WE KNOW THAT

THERE IS A LOT OF PANIC

ABOUT EBOLA, BUT LET'S NOT

FORGET IN 40 YEARS, THERE

WERE ONLY 3,000 INDIVIDUALS

WHO WERE INFECTED.

ALTHOUGH THERE IS A HIGH

MORALITY RATE, YOU'RE

TALKING ABOUT 1500.

IN THE UNITED STATES, ONLY

LAST YEAR, BETWEEN 5,000 AND

15,000 INDIVIDUALS DIED OF

THE FLU JUST IN THE UNITED

STATES.

SO THE NUMBERS TALK FOR

THEMSELVES.

Andrew: SO YOU PROBABLY

UTILIZED NUMBERS TO HELP

CALM HYSTERIA WHEN PEOPLE

GET ESPECIALLY CONCERNED.

The Doctor: CORRECT.

DON'T GET ME WRONG.

EVERY DEATH IS A LOSS AND WE

SUFFER FOR THAT, BUT AT THE

END OF THE DAY, THERE ARE

MANY OTHER INFECTIONS RIGHT

HERE IN THE UNITED STATES

THAT CAUSE MORE DEATH AND

SUFFERING THAN EBOLA.

Andrew: DOCTOR, THANK

YOU FOR JOINING US.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Andrew: AND WE WANT TO

SAY THANK YOU TO SINTERA

HEALTH CARE.

IF YOU WANT MORE

INFORMATION, LOG ON TO

700CLUBINTERACTIVE.COM.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT DEADLY

DISEASES, AND ANGELA HUNTLEY

KNOWS ALL ABOUT THAT.

THE DOCTORS TOLD HER THERE

WAS NO CURE AND NO TREATMENT

AFTER SHE CAUGHT A RARE

INFECTION SHE PICKED UP ON

VACATION.

AND WITHIN WEEKS, IT LEFT

ANGELA BEDRIDDEN AND

HOPELESS.

Reporter: THE HUNTLEY

FAMILY HAD A WONDERFUL TIME

ON THEIR DREAM VACATION IN

THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC.

BUT WHEN THEY RETURNED HOME,

ANGELA GAME ILL.

TWO WEEKS AFTER WE GOT

HOME, I STARTED COMING DOWN

WITH WHAT SEEMED LIKE VIRAL

SYMPTOMS.

I WAS NOT ABLE TO GET OFF

THE COUCH.

AND MY LIMBS FELT SO HEAVY.

IT STARTED TO BECOME HARD TO

LIFT MY HEAD.

AND SOMETIMES HARD TO

BREATHE.

AND WE'RE TESTING FOR THIS,

WE'RE TESTING FOR THIS, BUT

EVERYTHING SHOWS UP FINE,

AND THE DOCTORS JUST SEEMED

FRUSTRATED WITH ME, THAT

MAYBE IT WAS ALL IN MY

MIND.

NOW BY THIS TIME, I'VE KIND

OF LOST EIGHT WEEKS OF MY

LIFE.

MY FRUSTRATION GREW, AND IT

STARTED TO APPEAR HOPELESS.

Reporter: A DOCTOR, WHO

WAS A FAMILY FRIEND, BEGAN

INVESTIGATING ANGELA'S

SYMPTOMS, IN HOPES OF

DISCOVERING A REASON FOR HER

ILLNESS.

I KNEW HE WAS DIGGING.

I GOT A CALL FROM THEM.

AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY

FOUND THERE IS A CONDITION

CALLED SIGWATERA, AND HE

FOUND AT THE TIME THAT THE

ONLY PLACE TESTING FOR THAT

TOXIN AND WHO COULD GIVE YOU

A POSITIVE TEST, WAS THE

UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII BECAUSE

THEY WERE CONDUCTING A

STUDY.

Reporter: IT IS A

FOOD-BORNE ILLNESS THAT IS

CONTRACTED BY EATING TROPIC

AND SUBTROPICAL WARM-WATER

FISH.

SURE ENOUGH, SEVERAL DAYS

LATER WE GOT BACK A POSITIVE

TEST.

THE FISH I ATE, THEY WEREN'T

RAW.

I WASN'T EATING SUSHI.

EVERYTHING WAS COOKED WELL,

AND THEY WERE VERY COMMON

FISH.

Reporter: THE TOXIN IS

ODORLESS, TASTELESS, AND

VERY HEAT RESISTANT.

VIRTUALLY UNDETECTABLE.

UNFORTUNATELY THERE IS IS

TREATMENT AND NO CURE.

FOR SOME PEOPLE, THE

SICKNESS ENDS IN DEATH.

FOR SOME PEOPLE IT RUNS

ABOUT 25 YEARS.

I FELT LIKE I WAS IN A

COMA.

I COULDN'T MOVE MY HEAD, BUT

I COULD HEAR EVERYTHING.

I COULD HEAR MY CHILDREN

PLAYING, BUT I COULDN'T TAKE

CARE OF THEM.

I KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON,

BUT I COULDN'T PARTICIPATE.

I HAD MY HUSBAND TAKE ME TO

THE ELDERS OF MY CHURCH AT

THE TIME.

AND THEY ANOINTED ME AND

PRAYED FOR ME.

ONE OF MY PASTORS LOOKED AT

ME AS I LEFT, AND HE SAID,

ANGIE, HAVE YOU THANKED GOD

IN THIS?

AND MY HEART JUST BROKE WHEN

HE SAID THAT.

BECAUSE I THOUGHT, I KNOW

THE SCRIPTURES.

AND I KNOW I'M SUPPOSED TO

THANK HIM.

AND IT WAS SO DIFFICULT TO

START SPEAKING OUT GRATITUDE

FOR SOMETHING THAT I HATED

SO MUCH BECAUSE I DID HATE

THE SICKNESS.

I WAS BEING ROBBED.

I WAS BEING ROBBED OF TIME

WITH MY KIDS.

I HAD MISSED CHRISTMAS.

I MISSED 12 WEEKS OF MY

LIFE.

BUT, YET, EVERY TIME I SPOKE

OUT, THANK YOU FOR THIS,

THANK YOU THAT I DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT'S GOING ON,

AND THANK YOU THAT I DON'T

EVEN KNOW IF I'M GOING TO

LIVE TO SEE ANOTHER DAY, I

JUST KEPT HEARING BECAUSE I

WILL BE GLORIFIED.

AND I SAW MYSELF YELLING,

BECAUSE YOU WILL BE

GLORIFIED, BECAUSE YOU WILL

BE GLORIFIED!

Reporter: ANGELA WASN'T

HEALED AT THAT MOMENT, BUT

SOMETHING HAD SHIFTED.

AND WHILE SHE FOUND STRENGTH

IN THANKING AND PRAISING

GOD, HER HEALING WOULD COME

WITH REVELATION.

WHEN YOU SPEAK GRATITUDE,

THE ENEMY DOESN'T KNOW THAT

LANGUAGE.

I FELT SOMETHING LIFT OFF ME

AND BREAK IN THAT TIME.

I HAD LEARNED ABOUT ZOZO,

WHICH IS A GREEK WORD.

IT IS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

110 TIMES.

ITS TRANSLATION IS SAVED,

PHYSICALLY HEALED, REDEEMED,

DELIVERED, AND RESCUED.

SO IN THAT MOMENT, SOMETHING

CHANGED INSIDE OF ME.

THERE WAS LIKE A SWITCH THAT

WENT OFF.

AND THE LORD SAID TO ME, YOU

NEVER, EVER DOUBT THAT I'M

YOUR SAVIOR.

BUT I'M JUST AS MUCH YOUR

HEALER AS I AM YOUR SAVIOR.

YOU CAN'T JUST HAVE PART OF

ME.

I AM ALL OF ME.

IT JUST HIT ME, AS MUCH AS I

AM SAVED, I AM HEALED.

I WAS HIT AGAIN.

I UNDERSTAND NOW WHY SO MANY

PEOPLE IN CERTAIN INSTANCES

JESUS SAID YOUR FAITH HAS

MADE YOU WELL.

BECAUSE SOMETHING SWITCHED

IN ME AND I KNEW I WAS

HEALED.

MY HUSBAND CAME DOWNSTAIRS,

AND I'M LAYING THERE,

PROPPED UP.

AND I SAID, GOD JUST HEALED

ME.

AND I GOT UP.

I MEAN, I GOT UP.

MY KIDS ARE RIGHT THERE IN

THE LIVING ROOM.

AND WE JUST, LIKE, LOOKED AT

EACH OTHER AND STARTED

LAUGHING AND SCREAMING.

AND WE TURNED ON MUSIC AND

WE STARTED DANCING.

AND I KNEW I WAS HEALED.

I WAS OVERWHELMED BY THE

HEALING.

AND I LOOKED INTO THE EYES

OF MY FOUR LITTLE BOYS, AND

I ALWAYS KNEW THEY WOULD

KNOW AND NEVER DOUBT THAT

JESUS IS HEALING.

Andrew: I LOVE THE

REVELATION THE HOLY SPIRIT

GAVE ANGELA, WHICH IS, DON'T

JUST TAKE PART OF THE

KINGDOM OF GOD.

TAKE ALL THAT OF LORD HAS TO

OFTEN.

SOMETIMES WE DO THAT, WE

COMPARTMENTALIZE WHAT WE

THINK WE NEED OR WE'RE

WORTHY ENOUGH TO DEIS

SERVE.

BUT GOD I DESERVE.

LET'S GO TO JESSICA AND SEE

WHAT PRAYERS HAVE COME IN

ONLINE.

DEBBIE SAYS, "MY HUSBAND

HAS MERSA AND IT HAS REALLY

DESTROYED HIS LEG.

WE ARE TRYING TO BELIEVE

THAT GOD WILL HEAL HIM, BUT

IT HAS NOT BACKED OFF.

PLEASE PRAY FOR A MIRACLE."

CHERYL WRITES IN, "PLEASE

PRAY FOR ME AND MY FAMILY.

WE LIVE IN SIERRA LEONE,

WHERE THE EBOLA VIRUS IS

RAPIDLY KILLING PEOPLE.

PLEASE PRAY FOR PROTECTION

FOR MY FAMILY."

MARILYN SAYS, "PLEASE PRAY

FOR THE MINISTRY "YOUTH WITH

A MISSION," AND WE HAVE A

GROUP BASED IN LIBERIA, AND

WE PERSONALLY KNOW DOCTORS

THAT ARE AFFECTED WHY

EBOLA.

AND WE'RE PRAYING FOR A CURE."

BRAD WRITES IN, "MY WIFE IS

A NURSE AND LOVES HELPING

OTHERS.

I THINK WE SHOULD PRAY FOR

ALL OF THE MEDICAL STAFF

THAT WORK HARD AT SAVING

PEOPLE'S LIVES AND ARE

WILLING TO GIVE UP

THEMSELVES FOR THE SAKE OF

OTHERS."

AND FINALLY, MARIANNE SAYS,

"THERE WAS AN OUTBREAK OF

HAND, FOOT, AND MOUTH

DISEASE IN OUR AREA.

SEVERAL KIDS FROM CHURCH GOT

IN, INCLUDING ONE OF MY

OWN.

IT SEEMS TO BE GETTING

WORSE.

PLEASE PRAY FOR HEALING OF

THIS AWFUL THING."

ANDREW, AS I READ THROUGH

THESE REQUESTS, I'M REMINDED

OF ANGELA'S STORY, AND SHE

SAYS THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT

ZOZO, WHICH MEANS THROUGH

FAITH, HEALING.

HE MADE PROVISIONS FOR NOT

ONLY OUR EMOTIONAL

WELL-BEING, AND THAT WE

WOULD LIVE A LIFE

ABUNDANTLY, BUT THAT WE

WOULD BE PHYSICALLY HEALED.

ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO, I WAS

LIVING IN AFRICA, AND I CAME

HOME AFTER WORKING IN A

HOSPITAL WITH THE SICK.

AND I GOT HORRIBLY SICK.

NOBODY COULD DIAGNOSE IT.

BUT IT WAS THAT SAME

REVELATION THAT GOD GAVE

ANGELA THAT HE GAVE TO ME.

THE WORD ZOZO MEANS SAFE,

SEALED, AND DELIVERED.

IT TOOK ABOUT A FULL YEAR

FOR ME TO FULLY RECOVER, BUT

STANDING ON THAT REVELATION,

ON THAT WORD THAT SAYS, BY

HIS STRIPES, I AM SAVED,

HEALED, AND DELIVERED.

Andrew: AS A RESULT OF

THAT, YOU HAVE GREAT

CONFIDENCE IN GOD'S HEALING

POWER, AND YOU PRAY FOR

OTHERS.

IT IS.

YOU GET THIS RIGHTEOUS IN

DESIGNATION WHEN YOU SEE

SICKNESS ATTACKING PEOPLE,

BECAUSE YOU HAVE TASTED AND

SEEN HIS GOODNESS.

YOU KNOW HIS DESIRE IS TO

HEAL.

THERE IS THAT STORY IN THE

BIBLE WHERE THE MAN ASKED

JESUS, I WILL BE HEALED,

MASTER, IF YOU ARE WILLING.

AND JESUS SAID TO HIM, I AM

WILLING.

AND RIGHT THERE HE GAVE THE

ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION THAT

SO MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE

STANDING FOR HEALING WANT TO

KNOW: JESUS, ARE YOU

WILLING?

AND HE ANSWERED THAT, AND HE

SAID, YES, I AM.

IF YOU'RE WATCHING AND

YOU'RE STRUGGLING WITH ANY

TYPE OF NEED IN YOUR BODY,

OR YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS,

JOIN WITH ME AND ANDREW AS

WE PRAY.

HEAVENLY FATHER, WE JUST

THANK YOU, GOD.

WE THANK YOU THAT WE CAN

STAND ON YOUR WORD, THAT IT

IS A SURE FOUNDATION.

THAT YOUR WORD SAYS, BY HIS

WOUNDS WE ARE HEALED.

FATHER, I LIFT UP MARILYN

AND DEBBIE, FATHER, FOR

THEIR BODIES, THAT YOU WOULD

TOUCH THEM.

FATHER, WE LIFT UP CHERYL.

LORD, I ASK THAT YOU JUST

TOTALLY HEAL THEIR BODY.

WE ASK THAT THE KINGDOM OF

GOD COME AND THE WILL OF GOD

BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN

HEAVEN.

FATHER, WE ASK THAT RIGHT

NOW THOSE SYMPTOMS WOULD

CLEAR UP.

FATHER, WE ASK THAT YOU

PROTECT THEM.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE WORKING IN

THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY.

FATHER, THAT YOU WOULD

SAFEGUARD THEM, FATHER, AS

THEY RISK THEIR LIVES FOR

THE SAKE OF OTHERS.

THAT YOU WOULD PUT A HEDGE

OF PROTECTION AROUND THEM,

THAT NO DISEASE WOULD COME

UPON THEM.

THANK YOU, FATHER.

ANDREW?

Andrew: FATHER, WE

THANK YOU FOR BRAD'S

REMINDER OF ALL OF THOSE IN

THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY WHO

SERVE THE SICK.

AND SO OFTEN WE TAKE THEM

FOR GRANTED, LORD GOD, AND

WE KNOW YOU OFTEN HEAL

THROUGH THE POWER OF

MEDICINE, AND THOSE MEN AND

WOMEN WHO ARE PART OF THAT

PROCESS.

AND IN THE NAME OF JESUS

NOW, WE PRAY FOR GREAT

WISDOM FOR DOCTORS AND

NURSES AND TECHNICIANS, WHO

SEEK TO HEAL OUR BODIES

THROUGH MEDICINE, FATHER.

AND WE THANK YOU FOR THAT

WONDERFUL GIFT.

AND WE KNOW, FATHER, AS WE

PRAY FOR SIGNIFICANT THINGS

GOING ON RIGHT NOW WITH THE

THREAT OF EBOLA, LORD, YOU

ALSO CARE ABOUT EVERYONE IN

EACH COMMUNITY THEY'RE IN.

WE HAVE THAT PRAYER REQUEST

FROM MARIANNE ABOUT THE

OUTBREAK OF HAND,

FOOT-AND-MOUTH.

WE PRAY THAT YOUR HEALING

POWER WILL BE REVEALED, AND

WE BIND THE SPIRIT OF

SICKNESS IN JESUS' NAME.

FOR ALL OF THOSE WHO ARE

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM,

PRAYING FOR HEALING IN THEIR

LIFE, WE BIND ILLNESS AND

CLAIM THE VICTORY THROUGH

JESUS CHRIST, OUR HEALER.

THANK YOU, LORD, THAT YOU

WILL NEVER ABANDON US.

YOU WILL NOT FORSAKE US, AND

WE REJOICE IN YOUR LOVE IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

STILL AHEAD, DIRTY, STAGNANT

WATER IS ALL MANY HAVE TO

DRINK AROUND THE WORLD.

FIND OUT HOW VIEWERS LIKE

YOU CHANGED THAT FOR ONE

VILLAGE IN CAMBODIA.

THAT'S UP NEXT.

Andrew: WATER IS

SUPPOSED TO BE A SOURCE OF

LIFE.

BUT FOR MANY AROUND THE

WORLD, TAKING A DRINK OF

WATER MEANS DISEASE, OR EVEN

DEATH.

Reporter: THERE HAD

BEEN A GROWING CONCERN AMONG

THE VILLAGERS ABOUT THEIR

WATER SUPPLY.

AND EACH DAY AS CHROM WALKED

PAST THE DRAINAGE DITCH THAT

WAS THEIR ONLY SOURCE OF

WATER, HE WONDERED WHO WOULD

GET SICK NEXT.

WHEN WE DRANK THE WATER,

WE WOULD GET DYSENTERY,

RINGWORM, AND BLADDER

INFECTIONS.

BUT WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY

CHOICE BUT TO DRINK IT AND

BATHE IN IT.

Reporter: AND WHEN THE

CREEK DRIES UP, THE ONLY

OTHER SOURCE OF WATER IS

THIS DIRTY, OPEN WELL.

THE WATER HERE IS ALSO

VERY DIRTY, AND CAUSES MANY

DISEASES.

Reporter: CBN HAD BEEN

OUT DOING WATER SURVEYS IN

CAMBODIA WHEN THEY LEARNED

ABOUT CHROM'S VILLAGE.

IMMEDIATELY WE DECIDED TO

DIG A WELL THERE.

IN NO TIME, FRESH, CLEAN

WATER CAME POURING FROM THE

SPROUT.

AND CHROM AND THIS FAMILY

ARE NO LONGER AFRAID.

AND WATER BORNE DISEASES

HAVE DROPPED SIGNIFICANTLY.

BUT CHROM WAS CURIOUS, WHY

WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO HELP

HIS FAMILY AND HIS VILLAGE.

I ASKED THE MISSIONARY

PASTOR WHY CBN DID THIS.

HE SAID, THEY WANTED US TO

HAVE CLEAN WATER AND LEARN

ABOUT THE LOVE OF JESUS.

Reporter: THAT SIMPLE

ACT OF DIGGING THE WELL WAS

ALL IT TOOK FOR CHROM TO BE

CONVINCED THAT JESUS WAS

SOMEONE HE WANTED TO SERVE.

SO HE PRAYED TO BECOME A

CHRISTIAN.

IT'S TRUE, THE SALVATION

IS LIKE THE COOL WATER TO

CLEAN OR SOUL.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR ALL YOU

HAVE DONE.

Andrew: AS A HUSBAND

AND FATHER, IT WOULD BREAK

MY HEART TO SEE MY CHILDREN

AND MY WIFE HAVING TO DRINK

WATER, THAT THEY WOULD EVEN

HAVE TO BATHE IN THAT.

AS A DAD, NOT BEING ABLE TO

GIVE MY CHILDREN CLEAN WATER

WOULD BE HEARTBREAKING.

I REMEMBER BEING IN CAMBODIA

ABOUT SIX YEARS, DOING WORK

FOR CBN, AND SEEING THE

POVERTY AROUND ME.

AND LITERALLY, WE BROUGHT

CLEAN DRINKING WATER TO THAT

VILLAGE IN CAMBODIA, AND

ALONG THE WAY INTRODUCED THE

FAMILY TO CHRIST.

IT IS A WONDERFUL THING AND

IT IS VERY EASY TO DO WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

TO DO THAT, YOU JUST HAVE TO

CALL 1-888-777-1999.

OR LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

IT IS A WONDERFUL THING TO

BE A PARTNER WITH CBN.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALM 103: "LET

ALL THAT I AM PRAISE THE

LORD.

MAY I NEVER FORGET THE GOOD

THINGS HE DOES FOR ME.

HE FORGIVES ALL OF MY SINS

AND HEALS ALL MY DISEASES."

FOR JESSICA, I'M ANDREW

KNOX, AND WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT
