700 Club Interactive: Married at First Sight - August 12, 2014

Has the courting process become too difficult for singles? Hear one radical idea that could fix that! Read Transcript


LIKELIHOOD THAT

ANY OF THESE COUPLES WILL

STICK WITH EACH OTHER?

THERE IS SUCH A SMALL

PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE THAT

OBVIOUSLY GO THROUGH

SOMETHING LIKE A REALITY

DATING SHOW.

AND ONCE YOUR IN THAT LITTLE

FAMILY, YOU KIND OF ALL

CONVERSE AFTER THE PROCESS.

AND KNOWING WHAT I WENT

THROUGH AND HOW EVERYTHING

WORKED, THE FACT THAT

THEY'RE MARRIED AT FIRST

SIGHT, THEY'RE ABSOLUTELY

DOOMED FOR FAILURE, EN MY

OPINION.

Terry: YOU WOUND UP

WINNING THE PROGRAM, AND YOU

WOUND UP WITH SOMEONE AT THE

END OF THAT PROGRAM.

HOW DID THAT WORK FOR YOU?

THE MAKERS OF THE

BACHELOR LEFT ABC, AND THIS

IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE NEWEST

ONE ON NBC.

ENDING UP WITH HIM IS A LOT

OF EXTERNAL PRESSURES FROM

THE NETWORK.

THEY WANT THEIR SHOW TO BE,

HEY, IT REALLY WORKED.

AND IT'S NOT REALLY REAL.

Andrew: ANGELA, YOU

TALKED WOULD YOU BE SOME

ABOUT SOME OF THE

PRESSURES?

IS THERE MORE DRAMATIC

BEHIND THE SCENE OR LESS

PRESSURE?

WELL, FIRST OF ALL, I'M

TRADITIONAL, EVEN THOUGH I

DID A SHOW LIKE THIS.

THE GUY SHOULD PURSUE THE

GIRL.

THERE IS A LOT OF PRESSURE

DEALING WITH PRODUCERS AND

THE POLITICS OF THIS.

AND ONCE YOU'RE THE WINNER,

IF YOU'RE THE CHOSEN COUPLE,

THE TABLOIDS EXPECT YOU TO

FAIL.

YOU ALMOST WANT TO KEEP IT

TOGETHER BECAUSE

YOU'RE, LIKE, HEY WE ARE

KEEPING IT TOGETHER.

BUT YOU WANT TO BE HAPPY AT

THE END OF THE DAY.

Terry: YOU WERE UNIQUE

IN THAT YOU NOT ONLY WERE

THE CONTESTANT AND WINNER OF

THIS SHOW, BUT YOU TOOK A

STAND FOR PURITY.

WHICH, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF

PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED

THAT YOU LASTED IN THE

PROGRAM, MUCH LESS WON IT.

HOW DID THAT WORK FOR YOU?

IT IS CRAZY HOW GOD USES

SOMETHING AS SILLY AS A

REALITY SHOW TO FLOR FI

GLORIFY HIM.

ON DAY ONE, WE HAD

MATCH-MAKERS, AND MINE SAID,

I DON'T THINK YOU'LL BE ONE

OF THE ONES TO STAY ON THE

SHOW BECAUSE YOU ARE

WAITING.

I SAID, SEND ME TO THE

BOTTOM THEN.

AND THERE WAS A LIVE

AUDIENCE FILLED WITH ALL

KINDS OF GIRLS AND KIDS, AND

IT WAS REALLY NEAT TO TALK

TO THEM AFTERWARDS AND

HEARING HOW SHARING MY HEART

TOUCHED THEM.

Terry: SO YOU HAD A

PLATFORM?

YES.

AND IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE

I'VE REALLY TALKED ABOUT

THIS.

AND I SEE NOW HOW GOD

ORCHESTRATES EVERYTHING.

BUT AFTER LOOKING BACK, I

LOOK AT THESE REALITY SHOWS,

AND I'M ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED

THAT THERE IS ALSO A NEW

SHOW CALLED "NAKED AND

DATING."

WHICH IS JUST WEIRD.

Terry: I HEARD ABOUT

THAT.

I THOUGHT, THIS IS NOT

NORMAL.

Andrew: WHAT WOULD YOU

SAY TO PEOPLE WHO -- MAYBE

FRIENDS ASK YOU, I'M

THINKING ABOUT BEING ON A

REALITY SHOW.

WHAT WOULD YOU COUNSEL

THEM?

I WOULD SAY DON'T DO IT.

I THINK IT IS FUN,

OBVIOUSLY, THE ALLUREMENT OF

BEING FLOWN AROUND AND DOING

EXCITING THINGS, BUT I WOULD

NOT RECOMMEND THE PROCESS.

BUT IF YOUR HEART IS IN THE

RIGHT PLACE, AND -- I DON'T

KNOW, SOME PEOPLE -- THERE

ARE SOME COUPLES THAT HAVE

WORKED.

THERE ARE ONLY THREE,

ACTUALLY, FROM THE BACHELOR

THAT ARE MARRIED AND ARE

TOGETHER.

Terry: THAT HAVE

SUSTAINED THEIR RELATIONSHIP

WELL.

Andrew: WE HAVE A

QUESTION FROM A VIEWER, AMY,

WHO SAYS, "I'M IN MY 30s

AND I'VE BEEN READY FOR

MARRIAGE FOR YEARS.

I'VE TRIED ONLINE DATING AND

EVEN APPLIED FOR THE

BACHELOR, BUT I AM STILL

ALONE.

WHAT CAN I DO TO FIND MY

MAN?"

I WOULD SAY GET OUT OF

YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND TRY

NEW THINGS, WHERE YOU MEET

NEW TYPES OF PEOPLE.

MAYBE A BIBLE STUDY OR GET

INVOLVED IN A GROUP WITH AN

INTEREST THAT YOU LIKE.

I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND DOING A

REALITY DATING SHOW.

BUT, I DON'T KNOW, JUST TRY

TO EXPLORE YOUR DAILY

ROUTINE AND DO SOMETHING

DIFFERENT.

MAYBE YOU'LL MEET SOMEONE.

AND PRAY.

Terry: SHE'S PROBABLY

DOING THAT.

WELL, ANGELA, THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR BEING WITH US

TODAY.

YOU HAVE A REALLY UNIQUE

INSIGHT TO THIS WHOLE

THING.

STILL AHEAD, ANOTHER

PERSPECTIVE: A CHEATING WIFE

AND A RELIEVED HUSBAND.

I FELT LIKE THIS IS MY

CHANCE TO GET OUT THE HELL

THAT I FELT LIKE I WAS IN.

Terry: FIND OUT HOW

THEY BECAME A MATCH MADE IN

HEAVEN, WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: STEVE AND

SHELLEY WERE HIGH SCHOOL

SWEETHEARTS.

THE TWO FELL IN LOVE, GOT

MARRIED, AND STARTED WORKING

TOGETHER AT A CHURCH.

STEVE WAS A PASTOR, SHELLEY

WAS THE WORSHIP LEADER.

LIFE LOOKED PERFECT UNTIL

STEVE STARTED FOCUSING ON

HIS WORK ALL OF THE TIME,

AND SHELLEY BEGAN SEEING

ANOTHER MAN.

*

.

WHEN I FIRST MET SHELLEY,

SHE WAS A LOT OF FUN.

SHE WAS ALWAYS LAUGHING AND

SHE WAS BEAUTIFUL AND SHE

CAUGHT MY EYE INSTANTLY

BECAUSE OF THAT.

TO BE COMPLETELY HONEST,

WHAT I WAS ATTRACTED TO WAS

THAT HE WAS, LIKE, THE BAD

KID, ACTUALLY.

[LAUGHTER]

I WAS THE GOOD GIRL.

I WASN'T THE ONE TO GET IN

TROUBLE.

WE DATED THREE YEARS

BEFORE WE ENDED UP DECIDING

THAT WE WERE GOING TO GET

MARRIED.

RIGHT BEFORE WE GOT

MARRIED, WE STARTED WORKING

WITH A YOUTH MINISTRY.

AND STEVE WAS ACTUALLY

GETTING LICENSED TO BE A

PASTOR.

WE GOT MARRIED.

SHELLEY WAS 19 AND I WAS

21.

I LOVED THAT I NOW HAD A

HUSBAND THAT I LOVED, THAT I

WAS GOING TO SPEND THE REST

OF MY LIFE WITH STEVE, MY

HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEART.

I LED WORSHIP.

SHE WAS THE LEAD PASTOR.

ABOUT EIGHT YEARS INTO

OUR MARRIAGE, WE HAD BUILT

THE MINISTRY FROM 23

STUDENTS TO HUNDREDS OF

KIDS, AND I HAD A STAFF WITH

ME, AND JUST ALL OF THE

THINGS THAT FROM THE OUTSIDE

LOOKS LIKE SUCCESS AND

MINISTRY.

* WILL YOUR GRACE RUN OUT

* IF I LET IT

WE STOP INVESTING.

WE DON'T ALWAYS HAVE THOSE

BIG, BOLD WARNING SIGNS.

* BECAUSE ALL I KNOW

* IS HOW TO RUN

YOUR MARRIAGE IS IN

TROUBLE.

GET HELP.

* BECAUSE I AM A SINNER

* IF IT'S NOT ONE THING,

IT'S ANOTHER *

IT WAS SLOWLY PULLING ME

AWAY.

AND THERE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE

BALANCE IN THERE.

* BUT YOU ARE THE SAVIOR

* AND YOU TAKE BROKENNESS

ASIDE AND MAKE IT

BEAUTIFUL *

IT FELT RIGHT BECAUSE,

YOU KNOW, WE'RE WORKING FOR

GOD.

THIS IS WHAT WE NEED TO DO.

IN MY LIFE, I SET UP A

LOT OF BOUNDARIES, BUT I

NEVER HAD KIND OF A GUARD

AROUND MY MARRIAGE.

SO MINISTRY STARTED TO JUST

TAKE ALL OF MY TIME AND ALL

OF MY ATTENTION.

ALL OF HIS AFFIRMATION

WAS COMING THROUGH THE

MINISTRY.

YOU'RE DOING AMAZING.

THAT WAS A LIFE-CHANGING

MESSAGE.

OR, YOU KNOW, THE WAY THAT

YOU BRING INSIGHT, AND SOME

OF THOSE THINGS STARTED TO

ALLOW ME TO ALMOST BECOME

INTOXICATED.

I BEGAN TO FEEL THAT I

WASN'T MATTERING TOO MUCH IN

THE PICTURE ANYMORE.

I BEGAN TO RESENT THE FACT

THAT I WENT INTO MINISTRY

WITH MY HUSBAND, AND

ULTIMATELY, IT MADE ME

RESENT GOD, GOD AS A WHOLE.

I NEVER REALLY NOTICED AT

FIRST THAT THERE WAS EVEN A

DISTANCE FORMING BETWEEN ME

AND SHELLEY.

SO MANY LIES THAT KEPT

CREEPING INTO MY MIND.

IF YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER

MARRIED HIM, YOU WOULD NEVER

HAVE BEEN IN THIS SPOT.

SLOWLY THE ENEMY COMES IN

AND STARTS PULLING US TO THE

SIDE AND PULLING US APART.

AND THE WORD OF GOD, IT

SAYS SATAN HAS COME TO

STEAL, KILL, AND DESTROY.

HE HAS STOLEN AWAY MY JOY,

HE HAS STOLEN MY LOVE FOR

THE MINISTRY, HE HAS STOLEN

AWAY MY LOVE FOR MY

HUSBAND.

BEING THE PASTOR'S WIFE, I

FELT LIKE I COULDN'T EVEN

ADMIT THAT.

YOU HIT A SPOT WHERE, NOW

IT'S BROKEN, AND WHAT DO YOU

DO?

HOW DO YOU FIX IT?

AND SO PRAYERS ARE PRAYED

AND YOU HOPE THAT GOD MAYBE

WILL INTERVENE, BUT IT

STARTS TO BECOME MORE AND

MORE FRACTURED AND BROKEN.

AND YOU GET TO A SPOT WHERE

YOU JUST FEEL HELPLESS.

I FOUND ANOTHER MAN THAT

WOULD ALLOW ME TO SPEAK MY

PROBLEMS TO HIM, AND HE HAD

NO PROBLEM HEARING IT.

HE WOULD MAKE ME FEEL GOOD

ABOUT IT.

THROUGH THAT, IT LED TO A

LIFE OF SIN, AN AFFAIR THAT

LASTED A WHILE.

AND EVERYTHING IN ME HAD

JUST BECOME COMPLETELY

NUMB.

SO THE DAY CAME WHERE MY

HUSBAND UNCOVERED THE

AFFAIR, AND EVERYTHING CAME

OUT.

THERE WAS A PART OF ME

THAT WAS SO HURT AND

DEVASTATED AND FEELING LIKE

HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN TO

ME.

BUT THE SAD PART WAS THERE

WAS ALWAYS A LITTLE BIT OF A

SENSE OF RELIEF, TO WHERE I

FELT LIKE NOW I'M RIGHT

BEFORE GOD TO END THIS

RELATIONSHIP.

THIS IS MY CHANCE TO GET OUT

OF THE HELL THAT I FELT LIKE

I WAS IN.

WE BOTH CAME TO THE

REALIZATION THAT WE WERE

DONE, THAT THERE WAS NO HOPE

IN THIS MARRIAGE BECAUSE

WHEN YOU'RE LIED TO, THERE

IS A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF

BETRAYAL THAT TAKES PLACE IN

YOUR MIND, WHERE YOU, YOU

KNOW, YOU FEEL WAS ANYTHING

TRUE?

I HAD LET SO MANY PEOPLE

DOWN.

AND SATAN TELLING ME, NOW

LOOK WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

DURING THAT TIME, I FELT

THE HOLY SPIRIT PRESSING IN

ME TO LOOK PAST MY OWN PAIN

AND TO SEE HOW CHRIST SEES

HER.

AND MY HEART JUST STARTED TO

GRIEVE FOR HER SOUL.

I REMEMBER JUST SAYING TO

HER, I KNOW THERE IS NO WAY

TO KIND OF RECOVER FROM

THIS, BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW

HOW MUCH GOD LOVES YOU.

AND I REMEMBER GRABBING HER

HANDS TO PRAY.

I FELT LIKE I COULDN'T

EVEN UTTER A WORD TO GOD.

THERE WAS JUST A DEEP

DARKNESS.

THAT NIGHT WE WEP WENT

TO BED, AND I REMEMBER

WAKING UP EARLY IN THE

MORNING AND FEEL LIKE THE

HOLY SPIRIT WAS PRESSING ON

ME TO GO AND SEEK HIM.

I COULD HEAR HIM CRYING

OUT TO GOD, AND I KNEW HE

WAS CRYING OUT FOR ME.

I REMEMBER HEARING SO

CLEAR FROM GOD TO GO IN AND

GET HER.

I WENT INTO THE ROOM AND

GRABBED HER BY THE HANDS AND

JUST STARTED CRYING OUT TO

GOD.

I FELT LIKE THERE WASN'T

ANYTHING I COULD SAY TO

GOD.

GOD WAS DOING SOMETHING

IN ME AND DOING SOMETHING IN

HER.

I FELT GOD TELL ME THAT I

NEEDED TO GET ON MY FACE

BEFORE HIM.

I SAW SUCH A CLEAR VISION

OF THESE CHAINS THAT WERE

ATTACHED TO HER.

AND I WAS, LIKE, NO, I JUST

WANT HER TO BE FREE.

IN THAT MOMENT, GOD DID

SOMETHING SO MIRACULOUS.

AND I CRIED OUT TO HIM IN

WAYS I HAD NEVER CRIED OUT

BEFORE.

I HAD THIS PICTURE OF HIM

TAKING ALL OF THESE WORDS

FROM HIS HEART THAT HE

WANTED TO HEAR FROM ME AND

PUT THEM IN MY MOUTH.

AND EVERY ONE OF THOSE

WORDS, I JUST CRIED OUT TO

HIM.

AND IN THAT MOMENT GOD SET

ME FREE.

AND I FELT LIKE THERE WAS A

GENUINE REPENTANCE, AND THAT

HE JUST COMPLETELY RELEASED

ME.

AND I FELT LIKE THAT WAS THE

FIRST TIME IN SO LONG THAT I

WAS ABLE TO SPEAK TO HIM,

AND THAT HE CARED TO HEAR

WHAT I HAD TO SAY.

AND A WEIGHT WAS COMPLETELY

LIFTED OFF OF ME.

I WAS ABLE TO OFFER

GENUINE FORGIVENESS.

IT WAS THREE DAYS AFTER

FINDING OUT THAT AN AFFAIR

HAD TAKEN PLACE, I WAS ABLE

TO GENUINELY FORGIVE.

I REMEMBER JUST TELLING

HIM HOW SORRY I WAS FOR

EVERYTHING I HAD DONE.

I WAS SO SORRY FOR HOW I HAD

HURT HIM.

I JUST ASKED HIM IF HE COULD

FORGIVE ME.

AND OUR MARRIAGE HAS NEVER

BEEN THE SAME SINCE THEN.

WE'RE LIVING IN WHAT IS

NEW BECAUSE OF REPENTANCE

AND FORGIVENESS.

AND THOSE TWO PIECES ARE THE

MIRACLE OF RESTORATION.

IT HAS BEEN ABOUT FOUR

YEARS NOW SINCE THE MIRACLE

TOOK PLACE.

AND FOR THE FIRST THREE

YEARS, IT WAS JUST A TIME OF

WAITING ON GOD.

AND DURING THAT TIME I WAS

REALLY DIGGING INTO HIS WORD

AND SAYING A LOT OF PRAYER,

AND REALLY SEEKING OUT WHO

HE IS.

GOD TO ME NOW IS MY

EVERYTHING.

OUR MARRIAGE IS AMAZING.

WE LOVE EACH OTHER.

OUR MARRIAGE IS A PRIORITY.

WE'RE CONSTANTLY WORKING ON

IT AND CONSTANTLY WANT IT TO

BE THE BEST IT CAN BE.

THE MIRACLE THAT TOOK PLACE

WITHIN US IS THAT HE TOOK

SOMETHING THAT WAS SO BROKEN

AND IN PIECES, AND BECAUSE

OF GENUINE FORGIVENESS AND

GENUINE REPENTANCE, HE MADE

SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL.

BECAUSE I AM A SINNER.

IF IT'S NOT ONE THING, IT'S

ANOTHER.

* CAUGHT UP IN WORDS

* BUT YOU ARE THE SAVIOR

* AND YOU TAKE BROKENNESS

ASIDE *

* AND MAKE IT BEAUTIFUL

* BEAUTIFUL

*

Terry: MARRIAGE, IT'S A

GOD IDEA.

YOU KNOW, IT'S A GOD IDEA.

COMING TOGETHER, BECOMING

ONE, TO LIVE UNDER THE

CANOPY OF HIS LOVE.

THERE IS A WHOLENESS IN

THAT.

WHEN WE DO IT DIFFERENTLY,

WHEN WE STEP OUTSIDE THE

SAFE BOUNDARIES THAT GOD HAS

PLACED AROUND THAT, WE WIND

UP WOUNDED AND EMPTY AND

ANGRY AND BITTER.

TODAY MARRIAGE IS UNDER A

GREAT ASSAULT IN OUR

COUNTRY.

AND WE'D LIKE TO TAKE A

MOMENT JUST TO PRAY.

LET'S JUST PRAY TOGETHER,

AN ANDREW.

FATHER, WE JUST WANT TO TAND

BEFORE YOU AND CONFESS THAT

WE ARE SINNERS IN NEED OF A

SAVIOR.

THAT WE TEND TO WANDER AND

GO OUR OWN WAY.

AND THOUGH WE LOVE YOU, GOD,

WE ARE SO OFTEN UNWILLING TO

TRUST YOU.

AND SO TODAY WE WANT TO

SPEAK ESPECIALLY IN THE AREA

OF MARRIAGE, TO SAY THANK

YOU, GOD, THAT YOU'VE

CREATED THIS AMAZING UNION,

THIS SORT OF CENTER OF OUR

CULTURE, GOD, THE THING THAT

UNDERGIRDS EVERYTHING.

THE PLACE WHERE WE BELONG

AND WE SHARE IN YOU AND GROW

IN YOU IN A SAFE WAY.

GOD, FORGIVE US FOR NOT

TRUSTING YOU TO MAKE THAT

UNION THE CORE OF OUR LIVES

HERE WHEN WE MAKE A VOW TO

EACH OTHER BEFORE YOU.

AND SO, GOD, STRENGTHEN

MARRIAGE.

GIVE US HEARTS TO BELIEVE

YOU.

GIVE US A VISION FOR WHAT IT

IS YOU INTENDED WHEN YOU

CREATED MARRIAGE IN THE

FIRST PLACE.

GOD, WHEN IT SEEMS HOPELESS,

WHEN THINGS HAVE GONE WRONG,

WHEN WE'RE FAR APART FROM

EACH OTHER IN OUR HEARTS,

GIVE US THE ABILITY TO TURN

TO YOU AND TO TRUST YOU TO

FIX, TO REDEEM, TO MEND, TO

RESTORE ALL THAT HAS BEEN

BROKEN.

GOD, WE WANT YOU.

WE WANT YOUR WAY.

WE WANT YOUR PURPOSES.

WE WANT YOUR DEFINITION OF

THINGS.

WE WANT TO BELONG TO YOU

WHOLLY.

AND WE WANT TO LIVE UNDER

THE CANOPY OF YOUR LOVE THE

WAY YOU INTENDED.

SO GIVE US HEARTS TO OBEY.

JESUS, YOU SAID THE ONE WHO

LOVES ME OBEYS ME.

HELP US TO GET THERE FROM

HERE, GOD, AND TO TRUST YOU

COMPLETELY BECAUSE YOU LOVE

US SO DEEPLY.

WE WANT TO LOVE YOU DEEPLY

IN RETURN.

IN JESUS' NAME WE PRAY.

AMEN.

Andrew: AMEN.

Terry: IF YOU'RE

SUFFERING IN YOUR MARRIAGE

AND YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW

SOME OF WHAT GOD'S WORD HAS

TO SAY ABOUT IT, WE HAVE A

LITTLE BROCHURE CALLED "LOVE

AND MARRIAGE."

AND IT'S FREE.

THERE IT IS ON YOUR SCREEN,

1-888-777-1999.

DAND DREW?

Andrew: STILL AHEAD, A

BARREN COUPLE'S PRAYERS ARE

ANSWERED.

FIND OUT HOW AFTER THIS.

Andrew: CHINESE LAWS

PREVENT MANY FAMILIES FROM

HAVING MORE THAN ONE CHILD.

SO CHILDREN BORN WITH

DEFECTS ARE OFTEN UNWANTED

OR EVEN ABANDONED AND LEFT

TO DIE.

Terry: FOR 20 YEARS,

MR. AND MRS. WEN WANTED TO

HAVE A BABY.

THEY TRIED EVERYTHING THEIR

DOCTOR SUGGESTED BUT WERE

NEVER ABLE TO CONCEIVE.

I WAS SO SAD, ESPECIALLY

WHEN I SAW OTHER PARENTS

WITH THEIR CHILDREN.

BUT MY HUSBAND AND I PRAYED

ABOUT IT FOR A LONG TIME.

AND WE DECIDE THAT MAYBE GOD

HAD A DIFFERENT PLAN FOR

US.

Terry: WE THEN ONE DAY

MR. WEN HEARD CRYING FROM A

BOX ON THE SIDE OF THE

ROAD.

AS HE GOT CLOSER, HE COULD

SEE THAT SOMEONE HAD

ABANDONED THE BABY.

WHEN HE LOOKED INSIDE THE

BOX, HE KNEW WHY.

THE BABY GIRL HAD A CLEFT

LIP.

MR. WEN TOOK HER HOME AND

NAMED HER JALIN, WHICH MEANS

BEAUTIFUL JADE.

THE WENS WONDERED IF THIS

WAS GOD'S ANSWER TO THEIR

PRAYERS.

I FELL IN LOVE WITH JALIN

THE MINUTE I SAW HER.

I KNEW IF MY WIFE AND I DID

NOT TAKE CARE OF HER, SHE

WOULD DIE.

WE DID NOT HAVE ANY IDEA

WHAT TO DO ABOUT JALIN'S

CLEFT LIP, BUT WE WERE GOING

TO TRY OUR BEST TO SAVE

HER.

Terry: THE WENS FOUND

OUT THAT THE SURGERY THEIR

DAUGHTER NEEDED WOULD COST

$1300.

MR. WEN WORKS IN

CONSTRUCTION AND ONLY MAKES

$150 A MONTH.

SO THE COUPLE WASN'T SURE

HOW THEY COULD EVER PAY FOR

SURGERY.

THEN A NEIGHBOR TOLD THEM

THAT CBN HAD ALSO HELPED

THEIR SON, WHO HAD ALSO BEEN

BORN WITH A CLEFT LIP.

I DID NOT KNOW WHETHER OR

NOT CBN WOULD BE ABLE TO

HELP US TRUE, BUT I JUST

PRAYED THAT GOD WOULD HAVE

COMPASSION ON US.

THEN I CALLED CBN.

Terry: CBN ARRANGED

FREE CLEFT LIP SURGERY FOR

JALIN THAT COMPLETELY

TRANSFORMED HER FACE AND HER

FUTURE.

TODAY SHE IS PERFECTLY

HEALTHY AND CAN EAT, SMILE,

AND LAUGH, JUST LIKE OTHER

BABY GIRLS.

WE THANK GOD FOR HEARING

OUR PRAYERS AND SENDING CBN

TO HELP OUR LITTLE JALIN.

I NEVER THOUGHT THERE

COULD BE SOMEONE THAT REALLY

CARED ABOUT WHAT WE WERE

GOING THROUGH.

BUT YOU DID.

YOU SHOWED US GOD'S GREAT

LOVE.

THANK YOU FOR SAVING JALIN.

NOW SHE WILL HAVE A

BEAUTIFUL LIFE.

Andrew: WHAT A

PRECIOUS, PRECIOUS LITTLE

GIRL, AND THE SITUATION

SEEMED SO HOPELESS.

THERE SHE IS ABANDONED IN A

BOX, AND SHE HAS HER CLEFT

LIP, AND SHE IS LEFT THERE

TO DIE OR JUST BE FOUND.

THIS PRECIOUS FAMILY FINDS

HER, AND THEIR PRAYERS ARE

ANSWERED THANKS TO PEOPLE

LIKE YOU.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN

WITH US, GIVE US A CALL AT

1-888-777-1999 OR LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THIS

VERSE: "THERE IS NO FEAR IN

LOVE, BUT PERFECT LOVE CASTS

OUT FEAR."

HOLD TRUE TO THAT PROMISE

TODAY.

AND WE LOVE YOU.

FOR TERRY MEEUWSEN, I'M

ANDREW KNOX, AND WE'LL SEE

YOU NEXT TIME ON "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."
