THE PLACE WHERE DREAMS

COME TRUE.

WE WANTED THE WHOLE WEEK

TO BE WHERE THE ANSWER IS

YES.

MEET A MAN HAS ESCAPED

DEATH AND WANTS TO HELP

OTHERS DO THE SAME.

AND THEN...HER LIFE WAS A

MESS, NO JOB, TONS OF

BILLS.

FOOD WAS SCARCE IN THE

HOUSE.

HOW SHE TURNED HER

SETBACK INTO A COMEBACK.

I WAS SO HAPPY.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE GLAD TO WELCOME A DEAR

FRIEND BACK FROM THE SNOWS

OF KILIMANJARO.

SHE SURVIVED.

Wendy: I DID WHAT YOU

TOLD ME TO DO, PAT, I STAY

ALIVE.

Pat: A LOT OF US PRAYED

FOR YOU.

WE'RE GOING TO HEAR YOUR

STORY.

WE HAD CAMERAS --

Wendy: IT WAS THE

HARDEST THING I HAD EVER

DONE.

WE HAVE VIDEO.

I CAN'T WAIT TO SHARE IT.

Pat: YOU TALK ABOUT THE

BUCKET LIST.

Wendy: DONE.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, I REMEMBER YEARS

AND YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS

STUDYING ENGLISH LITERATURE,

THERE WAS A POEM BY A GUY

NAMED GOLDSMITH ABOUT THE

MAN WHO STOLE THE GOODS OUT

OF THE COMMON, BUT WHO

ARRESTED THE MAN WHO STOLE

THE COMMON OUT OF THE

GOOSE.

WELL, WE HAVE SUCH THIEVES

AT WORK IN OUR SOCIETY

TODAY.

WE'VE GOT AN AM MEG AMAZING

STORY ABOUT IT.

BUT BEFORE I GET INTO THAT

STORY, I JUST WANT TO TELL

YOU THE SCAM ABOUT GLOBAL

WARMING IS EXPENSIVE.

HERE ARE THE FIGURES: FROM

2001 TO 2014, THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT SPENT $

$131 BILLION TO FIGHT

CLIMATE CHANGE CAUSED BY

HUMANS.

ALONG WITH $176 BILLION IN

TAX BREAKS.

NOW THE EUROPEAN UNION PLANS

TO REDUCE CARBON DIOXIDE

ADMISSIONS, IT WOULD COST

$100 BILLION BY 2020.

ALL IN ALL, DURING THE THIS

CENTURY, WE WILL SPEND

$7 TRILLION ON WHAT LOOKS

LIKE A SCAM.

SOMEBODY IS STEALING THE

COMMON FROM UNDER THE GOOSE,

AND YOU ARE THE GOOSE.

I'M GOING TO TELL YOU HOW

THEY'RE TRYING TO COOK YOUR

GOOSE.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

BY THE WAY, GET OUT THE LONG

JOHNS AND THE SWEATERS THAT

AUNT MINNIE GAVE YOU FOR SO

MANY BIRTHDAYS, SNOW IN THE

SOUTH, AND WE'RE BEGINNING

CLIMATE CHANGE, BUT NOT

GLOBAL WARMING.

WE'VE GOT GLOBAL COOLING.

WERM

Wendy: THE UNITED

NATIONS WILL MEET ONCE AGAIN

AND TELL US THAT THE EARTH

IS HEATING UP, EVEN THOUGH

THE TEMPERATURES CLEARLY

SHOW IT ISN'T.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: IT IS ALREADY

SNOWING, AND ONE OF THE

PREMIER FORECASTERS ARE

WARNING FOR PARTS OF THE

MIDWEST, A BAD WINTER IS ON

THE WAY.

WE THINK IT IS A

FORMIDABLE WINTER, BUT THE

FORM OF THE WORST COLD,

INSTEAD OF BEING IN THE

NORTHERN PLAINS AND MIDWEST,

IT WILL BE FURTHER SOUTH AND

EAST.

Reporter: LAST WINTER

WAS BAD, TOO, HISTORICALLY

BAD.

THE GREAT LAKES WEREN'T

ICE-FREE UNTIL JUNE.

BUT THE U.N. KEEPS WARNING

US IF WE DON'T DO SOMETHING

TO STOP GLOBAL WARMING, THE

END IS NEAR.

THE REPORT CONFIRMS THAT

THE EFFECTS OF HUMAN-CAUSED

CLIMATE CHANGE ARE ALREADY

WIDESPREAD AND

CONSEQUENTIAL.

Reporter: THE EARTH

STOPPED WARMING 18 YEARS

AGO, AND THE WEATHER HAS

MADE A MOCKERY OF THE

PREDICTIONS.

SEA LEVELS AREN'T RISING

DANGEROUSLY, AND NOT ONLY IS

ANT TECARCTIC ICE NOT

MELTING, IT THE LARGEST IT

HAS BEEN.

BUT WORLD LEADERS, JUST LIKE

OUR PRESIDENT, BELIEVES

CLIMATE CHANGE IS A

PROBLEM.

President Obama:

CLIMATE CHANGE IS AFFECTING

EVERYBODY ACROSS THE

COUNTRY, ALTHOUGH IN

DIFFERENT WAYS.

Reporter: THIS IS

CALLED A CLIMATE SCREAM, AND

IT IS SIMILAR TO A PRIME MAR

SCREAM, EXCEPT IT IS DONE BY

RADICAL WORLD LEADERS.

BUT THE REAL DISASTER HAS

BEEN THE INACCURACY OF ALL

OF THE SCARY PREDICTIONS

THAT DIDN'T COME TRUE.

BY LAST COUNT, THERE WERE

42 EXPLANATIONS ABOUT WHY IT

HASN'T BEEN WARMING.

WHEN THERE IS 42

EXPLANATIONS FOR ONE

PHENOMENON, I CAN TELL YOU

WHAT THAT MEANS: SCIENTISTS

DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE

TALKING ABOUT.

Reporter: WHY HAS THE

EARTH STOPPED WARMING?

ONE REASON, COOLER

TEMPERATURES IN THE

PACIFIC.

ONE THE MAJOR PACIFIC

TEMPERATURES, THE

TEMPERATURE CYCLE IN THE

NORTH PACIFIC OCEAN, HAS

GONE INTO A COOL PHASE.

THE SUN HAS MOVED INTO A

COOL PHASE, IN TERMS OF SUN

SPOTS.

Reporter: JOE BISARDI

IS FORECASTING A LONG-TERM

TREND TOWARDS COLDER

TEMPERATURES.

FOR THE NEXT 20 OR 30

YEARS, THE TREND WILL BE

BACK DOWN TO WHERE IT WAS IN

THE 1970s.

Reporter: YET PRESIDENT

OBAMA THINKS THE PROBLEM OF

GLOBAL WARMING IS SO URGENT,

HE HAS REPORTEDLY PLOTTING

TO MAKE A CLIMATE DEAL

WITHOUT APPROVAL BY THE U.S.

SENATE.

BUT THE PRESIDENT MAY BE

LONELY WHEN HE ATTENDS NEXT

WEEK'S CLIMATE SUMMIT IN NEW

YORK.

A NUMBER OF WORLD LEADERS

AREN'T COMING.

PERHAPS THEY'RE AFRAID OF

LOOKING SILLY.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THERE IT IS,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THERE

ARE THE TRUE FACTS.

THE ANTARCTIC HAS GOT MORE

ICE THAN THEY HAVE EVER HAD

SINCE WE BEGAN TAKING

MEASUREMENTS.

IT ISN'T MELTING.

IT IS GROWING FASTER.

IT WILL BE ONE COLD WINTER.

THERE MAY BE FA FIVE TIMES

AS MUCH SNOW THIS YEAR AS

THERE WAS IN THE PAST.

WHAT ARE THEY DOING?

HERE IS THE GAME: THESE

SOCIALISTS, OR PROGRESS

PROGRESSIVES, WHATEVER

THEY'RE CALLED, WANT TO TAKE

CONTROL OF THE ECONOMY.

IF THEY CAN SCARE PEOPLE

WITH THIS MON TROS

MONSTROSITY OF CLIMATE

CHANGE, THEY'LL HAVE A

CHANCE TO GET MORE MONEY.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS THAT

ARE GOING INTO THIS

NONSENSE.

AND, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE IN

COLLEGES THAT DON'T GO ALONG

WITH IT, THEY'RE NOT ALLOWED

TO TEP.

TEACH.

THEY'RE NOT GIVEN PROMOTIONS

AND TENURE AND SO FORTH.

BUT IT IS ALL A SCAM, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

IT IS IN ORDER TO GET CELL

OF THE BASIC INDUSTRIES.

GET CONTROL OF CARBON.

GET CONTROL OF OIL AND GAS,

FOSSEL FUELS, AND ALL OF THE

REST OF IT.

SO THEY CAN DOMINATE ONE

OTHER PART OF THE ECONOMY.

THAT'S THE GAME.

DON'T LET THEM PLAY IT ON

YOU.

I SAID AT THE BEGINNING OF

THIS PROGRAM, THE WHOLE

SCHEME, SINCE THE BEGINNING

OF THIS CENTURY, $7 TRILLION

IN THIS FAKE SCIENCE.

YOU HEARD IT HERE.

TELL OTHERS.

OKAY, IN OTHER NEWS, ONCE

AGAIN, ISIS IS THREATENING

THE UNITED STATES WITH

TERRORISM IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

AND RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA,

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: PAT, ISIS

TERRORISTS HAVE RELEASED A

NEW VIDEO WARNING THAT ITS

ARMY IN IRAQ WILL STRIKE

BACK AT THE U.S.' TROOPS

THERE.

THE VIDEO CALLED "FLAMES OF

WAR," SHOWS MILITANTS

BLOWING UP TANG TANKS AND

U.S. SOLDIERS.

IT COMES AFTER AMERICA'S TOP

GENERAL SUGGESTED GROUND

TROOPS IN IRAQ.

I'LL RECOMMEND THAT TO

THE PRESIDENT.

John: FOR NOW, HOUSE

LAWMAKERS ARE TRACK TO GIVE

PRESIDENT OBAMA AUTHORITY TO

ORDER U.S. MILITARY TRAINING

AND ARMS FOR REBELS BATTLING

ISIS MILITANTS.

THAT VOTE COULD COME TODAY.

MEANWHILE, THE BRANCHES OF

al-QAEDA IN YEMEN AND NORTH

AFRICA HAVE PUT OUT A JOINT

STATEMENT, URGING JIHADISTS

IN IRAQ AND SYRIA TO UNIT

AGAINST THE U.S. AND

COALITION FORCES.

AND ISIS IS USING SOCIAL

MEDIA TO ENCOURAGE ATTACKS

HERE IN AMERICA, IN PLACE

LIKE NEW YORK'S TIME

SQUARE.

ISIS ARE ALSO IN A

POSITION TO INSPIRE.

THE INCREASING

SOPHISTICATION OF THEIR

MEDIA OUTREACH THROUGH THE

INTERNET, THE WALL OF THE

SOCIAL MEDIA.

John: AND, PAT, THE

ISIS THREAT LIST INCLUDES

OTHER TOURIST LOCATIONS,

LIKE THE LAS VEGAS STRIP.

Pat: I WANT TO TELL

YOU, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ARMING

SYRIAN REBELS.

I DON'T THINK AT THIS POINT

WE UNDERSTAND WHO THE GOOD

GUYS ARE AND WHO THE BAD

GUYS ARE.

AND WE'RE LIABLE TO BE

HELPING -- IN THE OLD DAYS,

NOT TOO MANY YEARS AGO, THE

ISIS FORCE MAY HAVE BEEN THE

ONES WE HAD BEEN GIVING

MONEY TO, BECAUSE WE

WOULDN'T HAVE KNOWN ANY

BETTER.

I'M NOT SURE IN SYRIA -- I

DON'T LIKE THE ASSAD REGIME,

BUT HE DID KEEP A LID ON

THING.

NOW IT IS CHAOS ON IN THAT

COUNTRY.

IT IS BEING PARTITIONED, AND

SOMEBODY HAS TO GO IN AND

TAKE CHAI CHARGE OF IT.

I WON'T BE SURPRISED IF THE

ISRAELIS HAD TO GO IN TO

PREVENT THIS FROM GETTING

ANY WORSE.

WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL BEFORE

WE VOTE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS

OF DOLLARS TO SOME SPUTTER

GROUP IN SYRIA AND SAYING

THESE ARE GOING BE THE ONES

WE BACK.

John: DR. KENT BRANTLY,

WHO RECENTLY COVERED FROM

EBOLA, SAYS THE U.S. DIDN'T

ACT QUICKLY ENOUGH TO COMBAT

THE DISEASE.

OTHER EXPERTS SAY IF IT

ISN'T STOPPED NOW, WE COULD

BE FIGHTING IT FOR YEARS.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: IT IS AN

AGGRESSIVE NEW EFFORT TO

COMBAT EBOLA.

President Obama: PEOPLE

ARE LITERALLY DYING IN THE

STREETS.

HERE IS THE HARD TRUTH: IN

WEST AFRICA, EBOLA IS NOW AN

EPIDEMIC, OF THE LIKES WE

HAVE NOT SEEN BEFORE.

Reporter: ON MONDAY, AT

THE C.D.C. HEADQUARTERS IN

ATLANTA, PRESIDENT OBAMA

OUTLINED THE STEPS THE U.S.

WILL TAKE IN WEST AFRICA.

THEY INCLUDE A NEW COMMAND

CENTER IN LIBERIA, AN

AMERICAN GENERAL ON THE

GROUND, COORDINATING U.S.

AND INTERNATIONAL RELIEF

EFFORTS, AND THOUSANDS OF

U.S. MILITARY PERSONNEL IN

LIBERIA TO SUPPORT THE

COMMAND CENTER.

DR. KENT BRANTLY, AN

AMERICAN SURVIVOR OF EBOLA,

SAYS THE GOVERNMENT'S NEW

CALL TO ACTION IS COMING

DANGEROUSLY DELAYED.

EARLY ON HE AND OTHER HEALTH

OFFICIALS PLEADED FOR MORE

RESOURCE IN THEIR FIGHT

AGAINST THE VIRUS, BUT THEY

WERE IGNORED BY THE U.S.

UNTIL BRANTLY AND OTHER

INFECTED AMERICANS WERE SENT

HOME LAST MONTH FOR

TREATMENT.

ON TUESDAY LAWMAKERS HELD A

HEARING ON EBOLA.

EXPERTS FROM THE CENTERS FOR

DISEASE CONTROL AND

PREVENTION, WARN THAT IF

EBOLA ISN'T STOPPED NOW, WE

COULD BE DEALING WITH IT FOR

YEARS TO COME.

DR. BRANTLY TOLD SENATORS

THAT THE DEADLY VIRUS COULD

SPREAD LIKE A WILDFIRE.

INDEED, IT IS A FIRE.

IT IS A FIRE STRAIGHT FROM

THE PIT OF HELL.

WE CANNOT FOOL OURSELVES

INTO THINKING THAT THE VAST

MODE OF THE ATLANTIC OCEAN

WILL PROTECT YO US FROM THE

FLAMES OF THIS FIRE.

Reporter: THE WORLD

HEALTH ORGANIZATION SAYS THE

WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY TO END

THE EBOLA OUTBREAK IS

CLOSING.

THEY PREDICT THE NUMBER OF

CASES COULD START DOUBLING

EVERY THREE WEEKS IN WEST

AFRICA, AND COULD COST

NEARLY A BILLION DOLLARS TO

CONTAIN.

WE MUST MOVE QUICKLY AND

IMMEDIATELY TO DELIVER THE

PROMISES THAT HAVE BEEN

MADE, AND TO BE OPEN TO

PRACTICAL, INNOVATIVE

INTERVENTIONS.

THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP

ENTIRE NATIONS FROM BEING

REDUCED TO ASHES.

Reporter: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS.

John: QUITE A POWERFUL

ADVOCATE TO FIGHT THE

DISEASE.

PAT?

Pat: RIGHT FROM THE PIT

OF HELL.

ONCE AGAIN WE ARE BEHIND THE

CURVE.

IT WAS ALREADY STARTING TO

SPREAD BEFORE WE DO

ANYTHING.

I CAN'T SEE WHAT 3,000

AMERICAN TROOPS ARE GOING TO

DO.

THEY'RE NOT SKILLED

EPIDEMIOLOGISTS.

WE NEED HAZMAT SUITS FOR

THEM SO THEY CAN DEAL WITH

THIS THING SAFELY.

BUT IT ONLY TAKES ONE LITTLE

DROP OF THIS BLOOD, ONLY ONE

LITTLE DROP OF THIS STUFF,

AND IF IT EVER GETS

AIRBORNE, THE WORLD IS IN

FOR A HELLISH NIGHTMARE.

WE CAN'T EMPHASIZE ENOUGH

HOW HORRIBLE IT IS.

THERE IS A BOOK CALLED "THE

HOT ZONE" THAT TALKS ABOUT

IT.

ONCE IT STARTS SPREADING, IT

IS DEADLY.

I DON'T THINK IT CAN BE

CONTAINED ANY LONGER.

LIBERIA IS ONE SMALL

COUNTRY.

YOU'VE GOT SIERRA LEONE,

GUINEA, AND YOU'VE GOT IVORY

COAST AND ALL THE WAY OVER

TO WEST AFRICA.

AND THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO WITH IT.

THEY DON'T BURY THE PEOPLE

PROPERLY.

AND ANYBODY THAT HAS GOT THE

STUFF, JUST A LITTLE DROP OF

BLOOD, AND YOU CAN GET IT.

SO I BELIEVE WE NEED -- IF

YOU WANT TO SPEND MONEY,

LET'S SPEND MONEY ON

LABORATORY SCIENCE TO SEE IF

WE CAN'T COME UP WITH SOME

ANTIDOTE TO THIS DREADED

DISEASE.

THEY WERE WORKING ON

SOMETHING WITH THOSE PEOPLE

DOWN IN ATLANTA, BUT THEY

RAN OUT OF THIS SPECIAL

TREATMENT THAT THEY HAD FOR

IT.

THE LAB SAID, WE DON'T HAVE

ANYMORE.

THAT'S THE PLACE IF THE

GOVERNMENT WANTS TO DO

SOMETHING, RATHER THAN

SENDING TROOPS TO WEST

AFRICA.

LET'S SEND MEDICINE AND

LET'S GET LABS GOING TO COME

UP WITH SOMETHING THAT WILL

KILL THAT AWFUL VIRUS.

JOHN?

John: PAT, A SPECIAL

CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATION

INTO THE BENGHAZI ATTACKS

BEGINS WITH A PUBLIC HEARING

TODAY.

THE MOVE BY THE HOUSE SELECT

COMMITTEE COMES TWO YEARS

AFTER THE ATTACK THAT KILLED

FOUR AMERICANS, INCLUDING

AMBASSADOR CHRISTOPHER

STEVENS.

IT IS UNCLEAR IF THE

INVESTIGATION WILL DIG INTO

THE ALLEGATIONS THAT

PROMPTED THE PROBE.

ANTHAT THE AMERICAN FIBERS

OFFICIALS LIED ABOUT WHY THE

ATTACK TACK PLACE.

THE OBAMACARE WEBSITE STILL

HAS FLAWS THAT PUTS PRIVATE

INFORMATION AT RISK.

MORE THAN FIVE MILLION

AMERICANS USE HEALTH

CARE.COM, AND THE SITE

COLLECTS NAMES, BIRTH DATES,

AND SOCIAL SECURITY

NUMBERS.

INVESTIGATORS AT THE G.A.O.

UNCOVERED MORE THAN 20

SPECIFIC SECURITY FLAWS, AND

THEY SAY THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION TOOK A MAJOR

RISK BY GOING LIVE WITH THE

SITE LAST FALL WHEN THE

SYSTEM WAS STILL NOT FULLY

TESTED, AND SOME OF THE

TESTING WASN'T FINISHED AS

RECENTLY AS JUNE.

PAT?

Pat: I WAS TALKING TO

SOMEBODY WHO IS

KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT WHAT

GOES ON IN WASHINGTON, AND

THE REPORT -- I MENTIONED

THE FACT THAT A WELL-KNOWN

LOBBYIST NAMED TOMMY BOGGS

HAD RECENTLY DIED, BUT THE

REPORT THAT CAME TO ME WAS

THAT WASHINGTON LITERALLY IS

IN GRIDLOCK, THAT THE WHOLE

GOVERNMENT HAS SHUT DOWN.

NOBODY IS DOING MUCH OF

ANYTHING.

WE'VE GOT A PRESIDENT WHO

DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE IS

DOING.

THE POLICIES ARE OBVIOUSLY

FLAWED.

INSTEAD OF COMING BACK AND

SAYING, LOOK, WE BLEW ET.

THER IT.

THERE IS A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT

OF COVERUP GOING ON IN

WASHINGTON, AND THE CONGRESS

IS IN STALEMATE BECAUSE

THERE IS SUCH PARTISANSHIP

THAT NO LONGER DO PEOPLE

WANT TO DO WHAT IS GOOD FOR

AMERICA.

THEY WANT TO DO WHAT IS GOOD

FOR THEIR SPECIFIC BRAND OF

POLITICS.

THEY WANT TO SET UP FOR THE

NEXT ELECTION, WHO WE CAN

BEAT AND WHO WE WERE NOT

BEAT.

HARRY REID HAS SHUT DOWN

CONGRESS.

THE HOUSE IS VOTING ON SOME

STUFF, BUT, NEVERTHELESS, IT

DOESN'T GO ANYWHERE.

SO THIS WHOLE GOVERNMENT,

AND WE'VE GOT THIS HUGE,

MONSTEROUS, EXPENSIVE

GOVERNMENT, AND IT IS JUST

IN A STATE OF GRIDLOCK.

IT IS NOT MOVING.

AND SOMETHING HAS GOT TO BE

DONE.

AND THIS PRESIDENT, INSTEAD

OF BEING AMERICA'S UNITER IS

AMERICA'S DIVIDER.

HE STIRS UP ANIMOSITY, STIR

UP RACIAL PROBLEMS, ANYTHING

HE CAN, TO STIR UP THE POT

SO MAYBE HIS PARTY CAN WIN

SOME ELECTORAL VOTES.

HE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE

ENGAGED.

SO THE WHOLE GOVERNMENT IS

IN TROUBLE.

THAT'S THE WORD I GOT, AND I

THINK IT IS A TRUE STORY.

THE GOVERNMENT IS JUST NOW

DYSFUNCTIONAL BECAUSE OF

HEAD OF IT IS

DYSFUNCTIONAL.

JOHN?

John: PAT, AMERICA'S

WAIST LINES HAVE BEEN

EXPANDING RAPIDLY OVER THE

LAST DECADE.

ACCORDING TO THE CENTER FOR

DISEASE CONTROL, 54% OF U.S.

ADULTS HAVE ABDOMINAL

OBESITY.

IN THE STUDY'S 12-YEAR

RANGE, THE AVERAGE AMERICAN

MALE WAISTLINE GREW BY AN

INCH TO 40 INCHES.

THE AVERAGE WAISTLINE FOR

WOMEN GREW TWO INCHES TO

30 INCHES.

PEOPLE'S WHO'S FAT WHO HAS

SETTLED AROUND THEIR

WAISTLINE RUNS A GREATER

RISK OF HEALTH RISK, HEART

ATTACKS AND BE DIABETES.

BELLY FAT IS THE MOST

DANGEROUS PLACE FOR FAT TO

DEVELOP.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

I FEEL LIKE PAUL RIVERE, THE

FAT IS COMING.

WE HAVE SOME VIDEO OF YOUR

CLIMB?

Wendy: I HAVE SOME

VIDEO.

I TOOK IT ON MY CELL PHONE.

I'M EXCITED TO SHOW IT TO

YOU.

COMING UP, A PLACE WHERE

KIDS EAT ICE CREAM ALL DAY

AND CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS ONCE

A WEEK.

WE WANT A WHOLE WEEK

WHERE THE ANSWER TO

EVERYTHING IS YES.

Wendy: WE'LL VISIT THE

VILLAGE WHERE DREAMS COME

TRUE FOR VERY SICK CHILDREN,

AFTER THIS.

PLUS, YOU'LL SEE ONE OF MY

DREAMS COME TRUE AT THE TOP

OF MT. KILIMANJARO, RATE

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, WE'RE ALMOST

TO MT. KILIMANJARO.

BEFORE WE BRING THESE

STUNNING PICTURES OF WENDY

AT THE SUMMIT, IT'S ONE OF

THE MOST PAINFUL EXPERIENCES

ANY FAMILY WILL EVER KNOW,

CARING FOR A CHILD WITH A

TERMINAL DISEASE.

BUT A SPECIAL VACATION SPOT

GIVES SICK CHILDREN AND

THEIR FAMILIES A HAVEN OF

HAPPINESS DURING THESE TOUGH

TIMES.

A PLACE WHERE NOBODY EVER

SAYS NO.

IT'S ALWAYS YES.

ANGELA BRINGS US THIS

INSPIRING STORY FROM

CELEBRATION, FLORIDA.

Reporter: A STORYBOOK

RESORT NOT FAR FROM THE

MAGIC KINGDOM IN ORLANDO

HELPS CREATE MAGICAL MOMENTS

IN THOSE IN NEED OF HOPE.

"GIVE KIDS THE WORLD"

VILLAGE WELCOMES FAMILIES

WITH A MEMBER STRUGGLING

WITH A LIFE,

LIFE-THREATENING ILLNESS.

IT FEELS LIKE A REAL LIFE

CANDYLAND, COMPLETE WITH A

GINGERBREAD HOUSE LOCATED

RIGHT BEHIND ME.

DESIGNED FROM THE EYES OF A

CHILD, THE VILLAGE MAKES

YOUNG DREAMS COME TRUE.

YOU CAN JUST SEE THEY'RE

SO TIRED OF THE BATTLE AND

GETTING POKED AND PRODDED.

WE WANT TO GIVE THEM A WHOLE

WEEK WHERE THE ANSWER TO

EVERYTHING IS YES.

Reporter: IMAGINE ICE

CREAM SERVED FROM MORNING

TONIGHT, AND CHRISTMAS EACH

WEEK, COMPLETE WITH SNOW AND

PRESENTS. THE VIBRANT

COLOURS AND SOUNDS CREATE

HAPPINESS AND INSPIRE HOPE.

WE WORK WITH 250

WISH-GRANTING ORGANIZATIONS

AROUND THE WORLD.

IF A CHILD WANTS TO COME TO

ORLANDO AND THEIR WISH IS

GRANTED, 50% OF THE KIDS

WANT TO COME TO ORLANDO AND

THEY CALL US AND COME HERE

FOR A VACATION.

Reporter: THE VILLAGE

WAS FOUNDED BY HENRI

LANDWIRTH.

AS A BOY, HE SPENT FIVE

YEARS IN NAZI CONCENTRATION

CAMPS, WHERE HIS PARENTS

WERE KILLED.

ALTHOUGH HE ESCAPED, HIS

CHILDHOOD HAD VANISHED.

NOW 87 YEARS OLD, HE HAS

DEDICATED HIS LIFE TO

RESTORING STOLEN CHILD

HOODS.

IN MANY CASES I SEE

MYSELF IN THESE CHILDREN'S

FACES.

BECAUSE WHEN I WAS 13, I WAS

TAKEN TO AUSCHWITZ, WHICH

WAS ONE OF THE WORST CAMPS

YOU COULD POSSIBLY BE IN.

I HAD NO IDEA HOW I WOULD BE

LIVING.

I FELT THAT I NEEDED TO DO

SOMETHING.

Reporter: THE VILLAGE

HAS HELD MORE THAN 172,000

FAMILIES FROM 72 DIFFERENT

COUNTRIES.

VOLUNTEERS WORK YEAR-ROUND.

THEY COME FROM CHURCHES,

CORPORATIONS, AND SPECIAL

EVENTS, LIKE "HEARTS OF

REALITY".

I WAS HERE FOR A DAY.

IT HAS BEEN GREAT.

YOU SEE THOSE LITTLE KIDS

SMILE, AND BEING A PIRATE

FOR THEM HAS BEEN VERY FUN.

I'VE HAD OVARIAN CANCER

TWICE, BUT THINKING ABOUT

HAVING A DISEASE OR AN

ILLNESS THAT IS SO

RESTRICTING AND YOU'RE A

KID, AND YOU'RE SEEING YOUR

CHILD GO THROUGH IT, IT IS

SO DIFFERENT.

THIS ALLOWS THE KIDS NOT TO

THINK OF THEIR ILLNESS FOR A

SECOND, AND THEY GET TO

THINK OF BEING A KID, AND

BEING A MOTHER AND BEING A

FATHER AND A BROTHER IN A

FAMILY.

Reporter: MANY FAMILIES

RETURN TO SPREAD THE SAME

HOPE AND LOVE THAT CHANGED

THEIR LIVES.

THE LOMAN FAMILY VISITED IN

2009 WITH THEIR 3-YEAR-OLD

SON, NOAH.

NOAH WAS DIAGNOSED BEFORE

HE WAS BORN WITH A GENETIC

DISORDER.

AND WE WERE GIVEN THE OPTION

TO TERMINATE AT THAT POINT,

WHICH WE DIDN'T, AND DIDN'T

FEEL COMFORTABLE DOING,

THANK GOODNESS.

Reporter: AFTER NOAH

PASSED AWAY, THEY MOVED FROM

THEIR HOME IN CANADA TO WORK

AT THE VILLAGE.

FROM HAVING NOAH AND JUST

BEING BLESSED BY HIM AND THE

JOY HE BROUGHT TO OUR

LIVES -- ALTHOUGH WE MISHIM

MISS HIM DEARLY, THE JOY OF

HAVING HIM, AND THE JOY OF

ENCOURAGING OTHER FAMILIES

GOING THROUGH THOSE TOUGH

TIMES IS SOMETHING WE WANTED

TO SHARE.

WHAT BETTER WAY THAN TO COME

TO A PLACE WHERE WE FELT

THAT FROM OTHER VOLUNTEERS

AND OTHER FAMILIES.

Reporter: "GIVE THE

KIDS THE WORLD" VILLAGE IS

STILL SPAN EXPANDING,

FULFILLING ITS MISSION TO

BRING LOVE, LAUGHTER, AND

HEALING TO CHILDREN AND

THEIR FAMILIES.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Reporter: ANGELA

ZADAPEC, CBN NEWS,

CELEBRATION, FLORIDA.

Pat: THAT WOULDN'T WARM

YOUR HEART, I DON'T KNOW

WHAT WOULD.

IT'S TREMENDOUS.

Wendy: SO SWEET.

Pat: NOW, LET'S TAKE A

LOOK.

ARE YOU GOING TO THE

SUMMIT?

Wendy: THE HIKING AT

ELEVATION IS THE HARDEST

THING I HAD EVER DONE.

WE STARTED IN THE RAINFOREST

AT 6,000 FEET, AND WENT UP

EVERY DAY FOR SEVERAL DAYS,

AN ELEVATION.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK.

OUR JOURNEY AT KILIMANJARO

BEGINS HERE, AT THE

OXYGEN-RICH RAINFOREST.

LUSH GREEN.

WE'RE ON DAY TWO OF OUR HIKE

ON KILIMANJARO, AND WE'RE IN

THE MIDDLE OF A PRETTY STEEP

CLIMB.

OUR REPORTERS ARE WITH ME,

AND THEY'RE HELPING TO CARRY

OUR STUFF, AND CONS

CONSTANTLY REMINDING US TO

GO SLOWLY.

AND THEY SAY THAT IN

SWAHILI.

IT IS DAY THREE OF OUR

JOURNEY AT MT. KILIMANJARO,

YOU CAN SEE THE PEAK OF

KILIMANJARO, 19,000 FEET.

I CAN'T WAIT TO GET UP

THERE.

IT REMINDS ME OF PSALM 121:

"I WILL LIFT MY EYES UP TO

THE HILLS, FROM WHERE COMES

MY HELP.

MY HELP COMES FROM GOD, THE

MAKER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH."

ONWARD WE GO.

WE'RE NOW ON DAY FIVE IN

OUR HIKE ON MT. KILL

MT. KILIMANJARO, AND IT IS A

SUNNY DAY, AND WE'RE GOING

TO HAVE LUNCH, HAVE A NICE

REST, AND THEN AT MIDNIGHT,

WE'RE TAKING OFF TO THE

ULTIMATE EVENT, THE PEAK OF

KILIMANJARO.

Wendy: PAT, I COULDN'T

FILM THE NIGHT WE WERE

HIKING ON THE SUMMIT, THAT

WAS ALL NIGHT IN THE DARK.

I GOT SOMEWHERE BETWEEN

17,000 AND 18,000 FEET, AND

I STARTED SEEING PEOPLE

COMING DOWN THE MOUNTAIN,

YOUNG PEOPLE, WITH OXYGEN

MASKS.

I GOT A LITTLE FREAKED OUT

AND NERVOUSP NERVOUS AND I

HAD TO STOP AND PRAY.

AT THAT ELEVATION, IT WAS

TURTLE PACE.

I PRAYED AND SAID, LORD,

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

AND GOD SAID, DO NOT FEAR,

FINISH.

AND MY TANZANIAN GUIDE, I

HAVE TO SAY THANK YOU.

I DID NOT TAKE THE ELEVATION

MEDICINE.

WE DECIDED NOT TO TAKE IT.

Pat: IT GETS YOU

DISORIENTED.

YOU GET HEADACHES.

DID YOU HAVE ANY OF THOSE

THINGS?

Wendy: ON THE THIRD

DAY, THE DAY THAT WAS REALLY

WINDY, I HAD A THROW-UP

MIGRAINE.

I WAS THROWING UP AND HIKING

ALL DAY.

THE NEXT DAY I WAS BETTER.

AND EVERYBODY ON THE TEAM

HAD A BAD DAY.

THAT'S PART OF IT.

YOU'RE HIKING FOR SO MANY

DAYS.

BUT MY TANZANIAN GUIDE,

MOODY, HE LOOKED AT ME WHEN

I GOT SCARED ON THE

MOUNTAIN, HE SAID, WENDY,

THIS IS THE POINT WHERE MOST

PEOPLE TURN AROUND.

AND HE SAID, DON'T.

IT WILL GET EASIER.

IT IS FLAT UP ON THE TOP.

IT IS 19,000 FEET, BUT YOU

CAN BREATHE JUST FINE.

IT IS THE STEEP INCLINE --

Pat: WHAT MAKES YOU

BREEN BREATHE AT 19,000

FEAT JUST FINE?

Wendy: I DON'T KNOW.

BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT EXERTING

YOURSELF.

YOU'RE LITERALLY UP ON TOP

OF THE WORLD.

IT IS THE HIGHEST

FREE-STANDING MOUNTAIN IN

THE WORLD.

IT WAS A THRILL.

GETTING TO THE TOP WAS

ANTICLIMATIC BECAUSE IT WAS

ALL ABOUT THE JOURNEY.

AND I WANT TO GIVE A HELLO

TO ALL OF MY TEAM MEMBERS

AND MY GUIDE.

Pat: WOULD YOU DO IT

AGAIN?

Wendy: I WOULDN'T DO ET

RIGHT NOW.

DO IT RIGHT NOW.

I NEED A BREAK.

I WANT TO SHOW THE

SCRIPTURE, ISAIAH 40: 9, AND

THIS KEPT GOING OVER AND

OVER IN MY MIND.

"GET UP INTO THE HIGH

MOUNTAIN, LIFT UP YOUR VOICE

WITH STRENGTH.

BE NOT AFRAID."

THIS IS WHAT WAS GOING

THROUGH MY MIND THE ENTIRE

HIKE UP THE MOUNTAIN.

IT WAS THE WORD OF GOD, AND

KNOWING YOU WERE PRAYING --

THANK YOU SO MUCH, SIR.

Pat: WE WERE PRAYING.

Wendy: I CAPITOL HAVE

COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT

WITHOUT PRAYER.

Pat: I HAVE TO SAY, WE

WANTED TO DO THIS AND HAVE A

BIG DEAL OF IT.

AND I THINK ANN CURRIE --

THEY HAD EMERGENCY TO TAKE

THEM OFF THE MOUNTAIN.

AND HE WAS AFRAID THAT WOULD

HAPPEN TO YOU.

Wendy: GORDON, THANK

YOU.

Pat: AND NOW THAT

YOU'RE BACK, WE CAN SAY IT

WITH CONDENSE.

CHECK IT OFF THE BUCKET

LIST.

DON'T DO IT AGAIN.

AND DON'T TRY TO CLIMB K-2

OR ANY OF THAT STUFF.

Wendy: NOR EVERES NO

EVEREST IN THE FUTURE.

Pat: IT WAS A GREAT

ACCOMPLISHMENT.

THAT WAS EXTRAORDINARY.

I COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT.

Wendy: THERE WAS A

72-YEAR-OLD MAN ON OUR

TEAM.

YOU COULD HAVE DONE IT.

Pat: I'M 84.

AT 72 I COULD HAVE DONE IT.

NOW IT'S TOO LATE.

Wendy: COMING UP, SHE

WAS DIVORCED AND STRUGGLING

AS A SINGLE MOM UNTIL SHE

GOT A PHONE CALL.

PEEKS I

I PUT THE PHONE ON MUTE

AND I BEGAN TO SHOUT,

HALLELUJAH.

I HAD TO PULL THE CAR OVER.

I WAS SO HAPPY.

Wendy: FIND OUT W WHAT

MADE HER SO HAPPY WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, YOU'RE WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB."

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH

US.

NOT LONG AGO, LA LATICIA

THOMAS WAS LIVING ON

UNEMPLOYMENT, AND SHE WAS

BURIED BY BILLS.

THEN SHE MADE A DECISION,

AND SUDDENLY HER PHONE WAS

RINGING WITH JOB OFFERS.

Reporter: LATICIA

THOMAS LOVES HER JOB SERVING

AS A MANAGER FOR A HEALTH

CARE COMPANY.

WHAT SHE LOVES EVEN MORE IS

RAISING HER 5-YEAR-OLD

DAUGHTER.

A FEW YEARS AGO IT WAS A

DIFFERENT PICTURE.

LATICIA WAS RECENTLY

DIVORCED, HAD LOST HER JOB,

AND WAS CARING FOR HER

BABY.

I WAS NOT VERY HAPPY WITH

MYSELF AT THAT TIME.

AND VERY UNSUREMENT BUT IN

THE BACK OF MY MIND, ANY

JUST KNEW THAT GOD WOULD

PROVIDE.

I JUST DEPUT DIDN'T KNOW

HOW.

I WAS LOOKING AT MY ME MESS

AND SAID, GOD, HOW CAN YOU

BLESS OUR SITUATION?

HOW CAN YOU HELP US HERE AND

NOW?

THIS IS TOO MUCH.

Reporter: AS LATICIA

SCRAPED BY ON HER SAVINGS

AND UNEMPLOYMENT CHECKS, THE

BILLS BECAME UNBEARABLE.

FOOD WAS SCARE IN THE

HOUSE SOMETIMES.

WE BECAME BEST FRIENDS WITH

THE PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY

SANDWICH.

Reporter: BUT EVEN IN

HER TIME OF NEED, LATICIA

TITHED FAITHFULLY TO HER

CHURCH.

I SEEN GOD WORK BEFORE,

AND WHY WOULD I STOP NOW?

WHETHER I'M GOING TO TITHE

FROM MY WAGES OR MY

UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS, I'M

GOING TO GIVE GOD WHAT I

SAID I WOULD GIVE HIM.

Reporter: IT CAME FROM

SOMETHING SHE LEARNED IN

CHURCH.

THEY TAUGHT A BASIC

BIBLICAL PRINCIPLE ABOUT

SOWING, AND THAT GOD IS

LOOKING FOR YOUR OBEDIENCE.

Reporter: NOT ONLY

THAT, LATICIA DECIDED TO

TRUST GOD AND GIVE MORE.

SHORTLY AFTER, HER PHONE

WOULD RING.

EVERY TIME MY PHONE WOULD

RING, IT WAS A DIFFERENT

JOB, A DIFFERENT EMPLOYER,

SAYING, ARE YOU AVAILABLE

FOR AN INTERVIEW?

Reporter: LATICIA WAS

OFFERED A JOB.

SOON SHE WAS READY FOR THE

NEXT STEP, SO SHE INCREASED

HER GIVING AGAIN.

ONE DAY HER SUPERVISOR

APPROACHED HER.

SHE HANDED ME A FOLDED UP

PIECE OF PAPER WITH A JOB

POSITION, AND I APPLIED FOR

IT.

I THOUGHT IT WAS ODD THAT MY

CURRENT SUPERVISOR WAS

SHOWING ME A DIFFERENT JOB.

SHE CAME TO ME AND SAID, I

BELIEVE IN YOU.

I BELIEVE YOU HAVE AN

ABUNDANT POTENTIAL TO DO

MUCH MORE THAN YOU'RE DOING

HERE.

LOOK AT THIS POSITION AND

APPLY.

Reporter: LATICIA

APPLIED FOR THE JOB, AND

THREE WEEKS LATER --

I WAS DRIVING TO MY

DAUGHTER'S SCHOOL WHEN I

RECEIVED A PHONE CALL.

AND IT IS THE H.R. DIRECTOR

FROM THE DREAM JOB.

SHE SAID, I DON'T WANT TO

TAKE UP MUCH MORE OF YOUR

TIME, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO

KNOW IF YOU COULD START THIS

POSITION IN TWO WEEKS.

I HAD TO PULL OVER.

HE'S LIKE, LATICIA, ARE YOU

THERE?

AND I SAID, CAN YOU GIVE ME

A MINUTE, PLEASE.

I BEGAN SHOUTING,

HALLELUJAH.

I HAD TO PULL THE CAR OVER,

I WAS SO HAPPY.

Reporter: WITH HER NEW

JOB, HER SALARY HAD

DOUBLED.

TODAY SHE CONTINUES TO GIVE

MORE AND CREDITS IT ALL TO

GOD'S FAITHFULNESS.

I HAD TO USE GOD AS MY

SOURCE.

"GIVGIVE AND IT SHALL BE

GIVEN UNTO YOU, PRESSED

DOWN, RUNNING TOGETHER.

FOR WITH THE SAME MEASURE

YOU MEET WITH ALL, IT SHALL

BE MEASURED BACK TO YOU."

I'M SITTING HERE SAYING, GOD

HAS JUST BEEN SO FAITHFUL.

I COULD HAVE BEEN ANYWHERE

ELSE.

IT COULD HAVE GONE ANOTHER

WAY.

IT REALLY COULD HAVE.

BUT GOD HAS JUST BEEN SO

FAITHFUL.

Pat: GOD IS FAITHFUL,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

WE SAY IT AND SAY IT AND SAY

IT OVER AGAIN.

JESUS CHRIST GAVE US THE

PRINCIPLE IN LUKE 6, WHERE

HE SAID, "GIVEN AND IT WILL

BE GIVEN UNTO YOU.

GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN,

SHAKEN TOGETHER, RUNNING

OVER."

"GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN,

SUNSHINE TOGETHER, RUNNING

OVER, WILL BE HEAPED INTO

YOUR BOSOM, FOR WITH THE

SAME MEASURE THAT YOU USE,

IT WILL BE MEASURED BACK TO

YOU."

GOD IS FAITHFUL, HE WILL NOT

LET YOU OUTGIVE HIM.

THAT'S THE PRIN PRIN

PRINCIPLE OF RECIPROCITY.

IT IS IN THE BIBLE, THE

PROMISE OF GOD GIVEN TO US

BY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

HIMSELF.

THIS IS A SPECIAL WEEK.

WE WANT TO ASK YOU TO

CONSIDER HELPING US HELP

OTHERS.

CBN IS REACHING OUT INTO THE

FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH,

FEADING THE POOR, HAVING

HOSPITAL MISSIONS, BRINGING

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO THE

LORD.

PROCLAIMING THE GOOD NEWS OF

JESUS ON EVERY CONTINENT.

AND YOU CAN DO THAT BY JUST

SAYING, OKAY, AND PICKING UP

THE PHONE AND SAYING, OKAY,

YOU CAN COUNT ON ME AND

JOINING.

IT'S JUST 65 CENTS A DAY.

SOME OF YOU SAY, I CAN

DOUBLE IT, AND I'LL DO "700

CLUB" GOLD, OR I WANT TO DO

THE 5,000 OR WHATEVER.

IT IS ALL THERE FOR YOU.

NOW IS THE CHANCE TO DO

SOMETHING.

FOR THOSE WHO PARTICIPATE,

WE WANT TO GIVE YOU OUR GIFT

CALLED "LIVING UNDER GOD'S

BLESSING."

IT IS A TEAM EFFORT FROM ME,

ON ONE HAND, AND GORDON ON

THE OTHER.

AND WE'LL SEND THIS UP TO

YOU AS A PARTNER.

PLEASE CALL.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

AND WE'RE GOING TO SEE

SOMETHING GREAT HAPPEN.

THIS IS GOING TO BE A

TREMENDOUS YEAR, WENDY.

Wendy: IT SURE IS.

WHEN YOU BECOME A CBN

PARTNER, YOU ARE HELPING

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD.

PEOPLE LIKE THE MEN, WOMEN,

AND CHILDREN WHO ARE

CURRENTLY SUFFERING IN IRAQ,

UNDER ISIS' REIGN OF

TERROR.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: AS ISIS

TERRORISM CONTINUES IN IRAQ,

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

REFUGEES HAVE ALREADY FLED

THEIR HOME TOWNS AND CITIES,

WITH MORE RUNNING FROM THE

THREAT OF ATTACKS EVERY

DAY.

IT WAS AROUND NOONTIME

WHEN MORTERS STARTED FALLING

ALL AROUND US.

WE WERE AFRAID, SO WE PRAYED

AND THEN WE LEFT.

Reporter: SHAVO IS A

RECENT CHRISTIAN CONVERT, SO

WE'RE PROTECTING HIS

IDENTITY.

HE SPENT EIGHT DAYS TRAPPED

ON SINJAR MOUNTAIN.

HE WITNESSED HUNDREDS BEING

TAKEN AWAY, WIVES AND

DAUGHTERS, TO BE SOLD AS SEX

SLAVES.

THEY WILL KILL US.

Reporter: ALL OF THESE

IRAQIS, AND THOUSANDS LIKE

THEM, FOUND REFUGE IN

MAKESHIFT CAMPS, SCHOOLS,

AND ABANDONED OFFICE

BUILDINGS.

WITH SCORCHING TEMPERATURES,

MEDICAL EMERGENCIES, HARD

FLOORS TO SLEEP ON, HUNGRY

BABIES AND DIRTY WATER, THE

LIVING CONDITIONS ARE

BRUTAL.

SO CBN DISASTER RELIEF

PARTNERED WITH IRAQI

CHRISTIANS AND ORGANIZATIONS

TO HELP.

"OPERATION BLESSING'S" BRIAN

SCOTT WAS ON THE GROUND

ASSESSING THE REFUGEES'

NEEDS.

KNOWING THAT MANY YAZIDIS

DIED ON MT. SINJAR, WE HAVE

TAKEN THE INITIATIVE TO

BRING WATER TANKS TO THE

PEOPLE SO THEY WOULD HAVE

WATER ON A DAILY BASIS, IN

ORDER TO DRINK AND SURVIVE.

Reporter: TO COMBAT A

POTENTIAL STOMACH VIRUS

OUTBREAK, WE PROVIDED A

FILTER.

CBN PROVIDED MATTRESSES,

PILLOWS, BLANKETS, MILK

POWDER, AND A REFRIGERATOR

AND FREEZER.

THIS DIABETIC MAN WAS

RELIEVED BECAUSE HE HAD NO

REFRIGERATION FOR HIS

INSULIN, AND FEARED HE WOULD

HAVE A HEART ATTACK AND

DIE.

I WANT TO TELL THE

AMERICANS THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

Reporter: CBN HAS GIVEN

FOOD, CLOTHES, AND MEDICAL

AID TO COUNTLESS REFUGEES,

BUT THOUSANDS STILL WAIT IN

NEED.

SOME SAY THEY'RE READY TO

GIVE UP.

THEY'RE CRYING OUT TO

SUPPORT THEM.

THIS DOESN'T END HERE.

THE LORD LOVES YOU.

Reporter: THAT'S THE

MESSAGE WE WERE ABLE TO

SHARE WITH OVER 100 REFUGEE

CHILDREN, WHEN WE SHOWED

THEM "SUPERBOOK" IN THEIR

OWN LANGUAGE.

IT TOLD THEM TO TRUST GOD.

THIS IS SO NICE.

Reporter: THE IRAQI

REFUGEES' PHYSICAL AND

SPIRITUAL NEEDS ARE GREAT.

SHAVO SAYS HE WAS ATTRACTED

TO JESUS BECAUSE OF THE

KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY OF

CHRISTIANS, AND ASK THAT

AMERICAN CHRISTIANS CONTINUE

TO HELP HIS PEOPLE.

WE DON'T WANT TO LEAVE

OUR CHILDREN AND OUR WOMEN

THERE.

PLEASE PRAY FOR THE YAZIDI

PEOPLE SO THEY CAN COME TO

CHRIST, JUST LIKE ME.

CENTS AND THEN 75, AND NOW

IN SOME VENDING MACHINES IT

IS $1.50.

A DAY AND YOU CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WHY DON'T YOU CALL RIGHT

NOW?

1-800-759-0700.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO MEET A

MAN WHO WAS ONCE REPLACED BY

A KARAOKE MACHINE.

WILLIE JOLLY TELLS HOW A

SETBACK IS A SETUP FOR A

COMEBACK.

THAT'S A NICE INTRODUCTION.

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

WENDY IS GOING TO TALK TO

HIM.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

THE SATANIC TEMPLE IS

PLANNING TO HAND OUT

ACTIVITY BOOKS TO SCHOOLS IN

ORANGE COUNTY, FLORIDA.

THE SCHOOL IS DISTRIBUTING

THE MATERIAL, ALLOWING A

CHRISTIAN GROUP TO LEAVE

BIBLES.

THEY SAY THE WHOLE POINT IS

TO COUNTER BIBLICAL

INDOCTRINATION.

THE SATANIC GROUP PLANS TO

PUBLISH MATERIAL FOR HIGH

SCHOOL KIDS AS WELL.

EGYPTIAN CHRISTIANS ARE

CALLING ON POLICE IN

SOUTHERN EGYPT TO FIND A

KIDNAPPED HOUSEWIFE.

HUNDREDS DEMONSTRATED

OUTSIDE A POLICE STATION ON

WEDNESDAY, DEMANDING THEY

TAKE ACTION TO LOCATE A

37-YEAR-OLD HOUSEWIFE WHO

DISAPPEARED TWO WEEKS AGO.

THE POLICE ARRESTED SOME 33

CHRISTIANS AFTER MOLOTOV

COCKTAILS REPORTEDLY WERE

THROWN AT A POLICE STATION.

THE COPTIC CHRISTIANS HAVE

COMPLAINED ABOUT THE NUMBER

OF KIDNAPPINGS OF CHRISTIAN

WOMEN BY MUSLIM MEN.

CBN NEWS HAS REPORTED ON

THIS DISTURBING TREND AND

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS IN

EGYPT.

YOU CAN FIND THOSE STORIES

BY GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PATP WENDPAT AND WENDY WILL

BE BACK WITH MORE OF "THE

700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

WILLIE JOLLY WAS A JAZZ

SINGER WHO'S HOT NIGHTCLUB

ACT PLAYED TO SOLDOUT

CROWDS.

HE WAS SHOCKED TO FIND OUT

HE WAS BEING REPLACED BY A

KARAOKE MACHINE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: WE ALL HAVE

SETBACKS, EVEN PEOPLE KNOWN

FOR THEIR GREAT

ACHIEVEMENTS.

TOTHOMAS EDISON, DR. SEUSS,

DISNEY, ALL EXPERIENCED

FAILURE BEFORE THEIR

SUCCESS.

IN HIS BOOK, "A SETBACK IS A

SETUP FOR A COMEBACK,"

DR. JOLLY SHOWS YOU HOW TO

ACHIEVE SUCCESS BY EMBRACING

YOUR SETBACKS.

Wendy: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," WILLIE

JOLLY.

IT IS SO GOOD TO SEE YOU.

IT IS GOOD TO SEE YOU,

YOU LOOK WONDERFUL.

THAT WAS A GREAT PIECE ABOUT

MT. KILIMANJARO.

Wendy: HEY, I READ YOUR

BOOK.

IT IS COMEBACK TIME.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Wendy: TELL US HOW IN

THE WORLD --

I WAS A NIGHTCLUB SINGER,

BROKE, BUSTED, DISGUSTED,

GOT FIRED AND REPLACED BY A

KARAOKE MACHINE AND WAS

DISPONDENT.

BUT I BELIEVE GOD IS TRUE.

I HAVE READ HIS WORD.

AND HIS WORD SAYS, ALL

THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR ALL

WHO FOLLOW HIM.

I TOOK A JOB AS A JANITOR,

AND THERE I LEARNED TO USE

THE WORDS.

Wendy: YOU TOOK

SOMETHING THAT WAS

AVAILABLE.

TOOK SOMETHING THAT WAS

AVAILABLE AND TOOK AN

OPPORTUNITY.

SOMETIMES OPPORTUNITIES

COMPANY IN WORK CLOTHES.

WE SOMETIMES HAVE

OPPORTUNITIES THAT COME NOT

DRESSED IN THE WAY WE EXPECT

THEM.

I STARTED WORKING WITH THE

SCHOOL SYSTEM, AND STARTED

GIVING SPEECHES TO THE KIDS

IN THE SCHOOLS.

AND TEACHERS WOULD SAY,

COULD YOU COME TO OUR

TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION.

AND SOMEONE IN THE TEACHERS'

ASSOCIATION WOULD SAY, COULD

YOU COME TO OUR CHURN.

CHURCH.

AND THEN IT GREW, AND I GOT

A LITTLE RADIO SHOW, IT GOT

SYNDICATED, AND THAT LED TO

A NUMBER OF TELEVISION

PROGRAMS.

AND THEN A PUBLISHER CALLED

AND SAID, HAVE YOU EVER

THOUGHT ABOUT WRITING A

BOOK.

AND I SAID, NO, I HADN'T

THOUGHT ABOUT WRITING A

BOOK.

AND THEN HE SAID LET ME MAKE

YOU AN OFFER AND I SAID, I

JUST THOUGHT ABOUT IT.

Wendy: WHAT IS THE

NUMBER ONE THING TO DO WHEN

SOMEONE HAS A SETBACK?

DO NOT PANIC.

WHEN YOU PANIC, YOU CANNOT

THINK CLEARLY.

WHEN YOU PANIC, YOU CHOKE

OFF THE EDGE OF YOUR BRAIN.

YOU MUST NOT PANIC.

THAT'S NUMBER ONE.

NUMBER TWO, YOU MUST HAVE A

VISION.

STOSTART THINKING IF THINGS

WERE GOOD, WHAT WOULD YOU

LOOK LIKE.

THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, WITHOUT

A VISION, WE WILL PERISH.

BUT WITH VISION, PEOPLE WERE

FLOURISH.

AND THEN YOU HAVE TO MAKE A

DECISION TO STAY AWAY FROM

ALL OF THE NEGATIVE PEOPLE.

AND THEN YOU HAVE TO MAKE

ANOTHER DECISION, AND THIS

IS CRITICAL: DO YOU SEE THIS

AS A SETBACK, PERIOD, OR A

SETBACK, COMMA.

PERIOD MEANS END OF A

SENTENCE.

BUT A COMMA, A PAUSE, A

TRANSITION, MORE TO COME.

AND THE THIRD THING, YOU'VE

GOT TO TAKE ACTION.

FAITH WITHOUT ACTION IS AN

ILLUSION.

AND ACTION WITHOUT FAITH IS

CONFUSION.

BUT VISION AND ACTION PUT

TOGETHER CAN GIVE YOU

PROGRESS.

Wendy: WHAT DID YOU

LEARN ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE

OF INSPIRING PEOPLE?

I WAS A SINGER AND I WENT

TO NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, TO

SING AT A BUYING GOSPEL

MUSIC ASSOCIATION

CONFERENCE, G.M.A.

I WENT THERE WITH THIS

ARROGANCE THAT I WAS THE NEW

THING.

I WAS GOING TO BE THE NEXT

NEW GOSPEL ARTIST.

AND I BOMBED.

AND IT WAS HUMILIATING.

AND I WENT BACK TO MY LITTLE

HOTEL ROOM AND CRIED OUT TO

GOD, AND I SAID, WHAT DO YOU

WANT?

AND HE SAID, DON'T TRY TO

IMPRESS THEM; INSPIRE THEM.

AND THAT WAS OVER 30 YEARS

AGO, AND EVER SINCE THEN

I'VE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO

INSPIRE PEOPLE.

Wendy: FORD MOTOR

COMPANY, IN 2006 THEY

INVITED YOU TO COME AND

SPEAK AND YOU HELPED THEM

OUT.

FORD MOTOR COMPANY IN

2006 WAS ON THE BRING OF

BANKRUPT.

AND SOMEONE CALLED ME.

I SAID, WELL, I DON'T WANT

TO MOTIVATE THEM TO TAKE A

BUYOUT BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW

THEIR FAMILY SITUATION.

BUT I CAN TELL THEM ABOUT

AMERICA.

THIS IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY

THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN.

I WORKED FOR FORD IN 2006,

AND 38,000 TOOK THE BUYOUT.

IN 2007 I DID TELEVISION

SPOTS, AND IN 2008 I DID

NATIONAL TOURS --

Wendy: YOU GOT THEM TO

BELIEVE IN THEIR OWN

POSSIBILITIES BEHIND FORD.

THAT'S RIGHT.

AND IN 2009, FORD WAS THE

ONLY ONE WHO REJECTED THE

GOVERNMENT BAILOUTS.

AND THE PRESS SAID I WAS THE

ONE WHO HELPED THEM.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS TRUE,

BUT I JUST KNEW I HAD TO

INSPIRE PEOPLE.

ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR

GOOD FOR THOSE WHO LOVE THE

LORD.

WE TELL PEOPLE THAT IT IS

POSSIBLE.

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOUR

VIEWERS TO GO TO THIS

WEBSITE,

jollygoodnews.org AND GET

SOME FREE RESOURCES.

YOU'LL SEE SOME OF THE

CHURCHES I'VE SPOKEN AT AND

GET MESSAGES THAT WILL

INSPIRE THEM.

PEOPLE NEED TO BE

ENCOURAGED.

Wendy: AND FAITH IS

SUCH A KEY COMPONENT OF

TURNING YOUR SETBACK INTO

SOMETHING GOOD.

IF THEY HAVE FAITH, YOU

DON'T PANIC AND THEY TAKE

ACTION, AND ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

Wendy: THE BOOK IS

CALLED "A SETBACK IS A SETUP

FOR A COMEBACK."

WILLIE, YOU'RE AMAZING.

GLDZ.

IGOD BLESS YOU.

IT IS SO GOOD TO BE HERE.

Pat: HE TURNED AROUND

FORD.

COMING UP NEXT, WE'RE GOING

TO BREN "BRING IT ON" WITH

YOUR E-MAIL.

DEBBIE SAYS, "SINCE THE

BIBLE WAS WRITTEN BY MAN,

HOW DO WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED

LONG AGO.

PLEASE EXPLAIN IT BETTER."

I'LL DO MY BEST, COMING UP.

Pat: LAST NIGHT WE HAD

JUSTICE ANTHONY SCALICE AND

MANY, MANY MEMBERS OF THE

JUDICIARY FROM THE LOCAL

AREA AND FROM VIRGINIA, AND

DISTRICT JUDGE HUDSON, HENRY

HUDSON, WAS HERE.

IT WAS A TREMENDOUS

MEETING.

700 PEOPLE.

JUDGE SCALIA, THEY WERE

CLAMORING TO GET TO HIM LIKE

A ROCK STAR.

THAT'S PART OF REGENT AND

REGENT LAW SCHOOL AND REGENT

UNIVERSITY, AND IT'S ONE OF

THE GREAT LAW SCHOOLS IN THE

COUNTRY.

WE HAVE HAD THREE SUPREME

COURT JUDGES, JUDGE THOMAS

AND SCALIA, AND ALITO HAVE

BEEN HERE.

IT IS REALLY NICE.

Wendy: WE'VE GOT SOME

GREAT QUESTIONS.

"SOMEONE ASKED ME SINCE THE

BIBLE WAS WRITTEN BY MAN,

HOW DO I KNOW IT IS REALLY

WHAT HAPPENED LONG AGO?

HOW DO I KNOW THAT THE

QUOTES IN RED WERE REALLY

SAID BY GOD OR JESUS?

MY RESPONSE WAS THAT IT WAS

A MATTER OF FAITH AND

BELIEF.

PLEASE EXPLAIN."

Pat: THE BIBLE SAID ALL

SCRIPTURE, ALL THE WRITINGS,

ARE A NICE WORD IN GREEK,

WHICH MEANS GOD BREATHED.

THE GOD WRITING UNDER THE

INSPIRATION OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

THIS BOOK HAS BEEN VETTED

OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

WE GO ALMOST BACK TO THE

DAYS OF THE APOSTLES.

WE DON'T HAVE WHAT IS CALLED

THE AUTOGRAPHS.

BUT THESE ARE THE WRITINGS.

AS FAR AS THE OLD TESTAMENT,

THAT -- IF A SCRIBE, JEWISH

SCRIBE, WRITING DOWN -- IF

HE COUNTS THE NUMBER OF

CONSONANTS, AND HE MAY HAVE

WRITTEN HALF OF A

MANUSCRIPT.

AND IF ONE CONSONANT IS OFF

FROM THE COUNT, HE TEARS THE

WHOLE THING UP.

HE CAN'T KEEP IT.

SO IT IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT,

THE WRITING THAT HAS COME.

AND IT HAS COME THROUGH

GENERATION ANS AND

GENERATIONS.

IT HAS BORN THE IMPROMOTO OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AS FAR AS THE NEW TESTAMENT,

THE SAME THING, IT HAS GONE

THROUGH CHURCH COUNCIL AND

OTHERS TO GET WHAT SEEM TO

BE THE CLOSEST TO THE

WRITINGS OF THE LORD.

THE BIBLE SAYS IT IS GOD

BREATHED, AND I BELIEVE IT.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM PROVERBS

3: HEAR THE LORD AND SHUN

EVIL.

THIS WILL BRING HEALTH TO

YOUR BODY AND NOURISHMENT TO

YOUR BONES."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
