INVISIBLE VETS WITH

COMBAT WOUNDS YOU CAN'T

SEE.

THE DEMONS COME AT

NIGHT.

Wendy: AND THE

BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY THAT

IS HELPING THEM.

PLUS...A MYSTERIOUS ILLNESS

WITH NO TREATMENT AND NO

CURE.

I COULDN'T MOVE.

I COULDN'T OPEN MY EYES OR

MOVE MY HEAD.

Wendy: THE SECRETS TO

HER SUPERNATURAL HEALING.

Wendy: AND FORMER

COACH, SHEILA ROSS, TELLS

WHY SHE WALKED AWAY FROM IT

ALL.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU WITH

US, AND DELIGHTED TO BE WITH

YOU AND TO BE WITH MY

CHARMING CO-HOSTESS.

GOOD MORNING.

Wendy: GOOD TO SEE

YOU.

IT HAS BEEN TOO LONG.

Pat: YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN

WORKING --

Wendy: WE HAD A GREAT

TELETHON.

Pat: IT IS GREAT TO BE

HERE.

IT HASN'T HAPPENED AS BAD AS

THEY THOUGHT.

NEW YORK CITY WON'T BE

FACING ANOTHER

SNOWMAGEDDON.

THE WORST OF THE STORM HAS

MISSED MANHATTAN, BUT A

BLIZZARD COULD SLAM OTHER

PARTS OF THE NORTHEAST.

Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT.

FLIGHTS ARE CANCELLED AND

MANY FOLKS ARE JUST STAYING

HOME.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE WORST

STORM OF 2015 IS MOVING IN

TODAY WITH UP TO THREE FEET

EXPECTED IN SOME AREAS.

THIS IS GOING TO BE A

SIGNIFICANT STORM.

IT SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN

LIGHTLY.

Reporter: OVERNIGHT,

HOWEVER, FORECASTERS ROLLED

BACK THEIR MOST DIRE

PREDICTIONS ABOUT THE STORM

IN NEW YORK CITY.

INSTEAD OF THREE FEET OF

SNOW AND HURRICANE-STYLE

WINDS, THEY'RE TALKING TWO

FEET AND LESSER WINDS.

BUT THE STORM IS ZEROING ON

BOSTON.

AUTHORITIES ARE TAKING NO

CHANCES.

THEY BANNED TRAVEL ON THE

ROADS IN PLACES LIKE RHODE

ISLAND AND NEW YORK CITY.

THE BLIZZARD IS EXPECTED TO

RAGE ON TUESDAY, WE MOST

WARNINGS ON THROUGH

MIDNIGHT.

AFTER THAT, HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS COULD LOSE POWER

FOR DAYS.

IT IS ONE REASON WHY

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

STAGED A RESPONSES SITE IN

TUCKERTON, NEW JERSEY.

WE'RE READY TO SERVE HOT

MEALS AND DO FOOD

DISTRIBUTION, AND WE'RE

READY TO SEND VOLUNTEERS OUT

AND HELP SINGLE MOMS,

ELDERLY, AND HANDICAPPED.

Reporter: AIRLINE

PASSENGERS HAVE ALREADY FELT

THE BREATH OF THE STORM.

THE AIRLINES HAVE ALREADY

CANCELLED 5,000 FLIGHTS FROM

COAST TO COAST.

THEY KEEP PUSHING US

AROUND A BIT, BUT WHAT ARE

YOU GOING TO DO, THERE ARE

30 INCHES OF SNOW.

I JUST WANT TO GO HOME.

Reporter: FOR NOW, IT

IS TIME FOR MILLIONS TO WAIT

OUT THE STORM AND HOPE FOR

THE BEST.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, HEATHER.

I MIGHT ADD THAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" HAS GOT SOME

ACTIVITY GOING.

HOT MEALS, BLANKETS,

SHELTER, ALL THAT IS NEEDED

FOR THE AT-RISK POPULATION.

JUST LIKE HURRICANE SANDY,

AND WE WERE THERE ON THE

SCENE, AND MOVED UP FURTHER

NORTH.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP

"OPERATION BLESSING," THERE

IS A NUMBER YOU CAN CALL

IN.

1-800-759-0700.

IT IS "OPERATION BLESSING."

BY THE WAY, I HAVE A PIECE

OF WHAT I CONSIDER GOOD

NEWS.

THOSE OF US WHO ARE CLOSER

TO THE SCENE, THE FORMER

GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA IS A

GRADUATE OF REGENT

UNIVERSITY AND A DEAR FRIEND

OF MINE, BOB McDONALD.

AND HE WAS CONVICTED OF HIS

HOBBS ACT OF IMPROPER

ACTIONS WHILE HE WAS

GOVERNOR.

NOW THE CASE IS GOING ON

APPEAL TO THE UNITED STATES

FOURTH CIRCUIT, WHICH IS

LOCATED IN RICHMOND.

A PANEL OF THE FOURTH

CIRCUIT SAID THERE IS

SERIOUS QUESTIONABLE LAW AND

FACT.

AND, THEREFORE, GOVERNOR

McDONALD -- FORMER

GOVERNOR McDONALD -- DOES

NOT HAVE TO GO TO JAIL.

HE CAN POST BOND, WAITING

FOR THE APPEAL.

THE FOURTH CIRCUIT IS

ESSENTIALLY SAYING THERE IS

A VERY GOOD CHANCE THAT THAT

WHOLE CASE WILL BE THROWN

OUT.

THERE WERE FIVE OR SIX

FORMER ATTORNEY-GENERALS,

DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN,

THAT PUT IN AN AMICUS BRIEF,

SHOWING WHY THE APPLICATION

OF THIS HOBBS ACT WAS WRONG,

HOW WAS TOO VAGUE, IT DIDN'T

MEET CONSTITUTIONAL

STANDARDS, HOW THAT GOVERNOR

McDONALD DID NOT PERFORM

ANY SO-CALLED OFFICIAL ACT.

YOU KNOW, JUST THE FACT THAT

YOU ARE NICE TO SOMEBODY AND

GIVE HIM LUNCH IN YOUR HOUSE

DOESN'T CONSTITUTE AN

OFFICIAL ACT.

AND IT WAS VERY

WELL-PRESENTED.

AND THE FORMER FEDERAL JUDGE

IN MASSACHUSETTS WHO ALSO

TEACHES LAW AT HARVARD LAW

SCHOOL WEIGHED IN ON AT

AMICUS BRIEF.

IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT.

I KNOW THOSE OF US WHO CARE

ABOUT JUSTICE ARE VERY

THRILLED TO SEE THIS INITIAL

STEP.

AND I THINK IF WHAT THEY'RE

SAYING IS THE ENTIRE

INDICTMENT WAS FLAWED, THEN

I DARE SAY THAT OUR GOOD

FRIEND'S NAME, SOONER OR

LATER, WILL BE CLEARED.

WE'RE CERTAINLY PRAYING TO

THAT END.

> IN OTHER NEWS, IRAN IS

WORKING ON A NEW MISSILE.

YES, A MISSILE THAT COULD

THREATEN A NUCLEAR ATTACK ON

THE UNITED STATES.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: PAT, NEW VIDEO

OBTAINED BY AN ISRAELI NEWS

ORGANIZATION PROVIDES MORE

EVIDENCE ABOUT IRAN'S

AMBITIONS TO BUILD NUCLEAR

WEAPONS AND HOW IT PUTS

ISRAEL AND OTHER COUNTRIES,

INCLUDING THE U.S., AT

RISK.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE

LATEST DETAILS FROM

JERUSALEM.

Reporter: THE VIDEO,

TAKEN FROM SATELLITE IMAGES

BY ARRIS "B" SATELLITE

REVEALED A NEARLY 90-FOOT

TALL MISSILE.

IT STANDS OUTSIDE IRAN, AND

APPEARS CAPABLE OF SENDING A

ROCKET INTO SPACE OR

LAUNCHING AN ICB ICBM.

THE PENTAGON ESTIMATES IT

MIGHT HAVE BEEN TWO YEARS IN

.NET.

DEVELOPMENT.

THIS LATEST REVELATION

CLEARLY POSSESS A CLEAR AND

PRESENT DANGER TO AMERICA.

ORIGINALLY MANY IN THE

U.S.

THINK

OF

IRAN THAT THAT

IS A PROBLEM FOR SAWE SAUDI

ARABIA OR ISRAEL, BUT IT IS

NOT OUR PROBLEM.

THAT'S NOT TRUE.

THE TREND IN URANIUM

PLANNING FOR

LONG-RANGE

MISSILES THAT CAN EVENTUALLY

REACH THE EASTERN SEABOARD

OF THE UNITED STATES, THAT'S

A GIVEN NOW.

Reporter: HE SAYS THAT

THE IRANIAN AND NUCLEAR

THREAT PROMPTED BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU TO ACCEPT JOHN

BOEHNER'S INVITATION TO

ADDRESS A JOINT SESSION OF

CONGRESS EARLY IN MARCH.

DESPITE THE POTENTIAL

POLITICA POLITICAL FALLOUT,

HE'LL USE THE PLATFORM TO

WARN AMERICA AND THE WORLD

ABOUT THE GROWING DANGER.

YET THE WHITE HOUSE AND

CONGRESS DIFFER ON HOW TO

DEAL WITH THE THREAT.

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS FROM

BOTH PARTIES PREFER ANY

NEGOTIATIONS TO INCLUDE THE

THREAT OF SANCTIONS.

SENATE DEMOCRAT BOB MENENDEZ

MADE THIS STARTLING

COMMENT.

THE MORE I HEAR FROM THE

ADMINISTRATION AND ITS

QUOTES, THE MORE IT SOUNDS

LIKE TALKING POINTS THAT

COME STRAIGHT OUT OF

IRAN.

Reporter: BOB CENTER

TOLD NEWS AGENCIES, HE CAN'T

UNDERSTAND WHY THE PRESIDENT

PROMISES TO VETO UPCOMING

LEGISLATION ABOUT IRAN BIEN

BEFOR IRAN EVEN BEFORE IT

HAS BEEN WRITTEN.

FOR CONGRESS NOT TO HAVE

THE ABILITY TO WEIGH IN ON

THIS, IN A PLACE WHERE

CONGRESS HAS PLAYED SUCH AN

IMPORTANT ROLE, IS

RIDICULOUS, AND CANDIDLY

IRRESPONSIBLE FOR CONGRESS

NOT TO PLAY A ROLE.

Reporter: IRAN, AND

FIVE OTHER NATIONS

NEGOTIATING IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM, HAVE SET A

JUNE 30th DEADLINE FOR

REACHING A FINAL

SETTLEMENT.

SOME LEADERS ON BOTH SIDES

OF THE ATLANTIC BELIEVE THAT

THE EXPANDING NUCLEAR

PROGRAM REPRESENTS IRAN'S

ULTIMATE GOALS OF ATTACKING

WHAT IT CALLS "THE LITTLE

SATAN, ISRAEL, AND THE GREAT

SATAN, THE UNITED STATES."

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

PAT, THIS WILL PROBABLY

DO LITTLE TO CURB THE

ADMINISTRATION'S PLANS TO

KEEP ON NEGOTIATING.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW.

THEY FACE THE WORLD WITH

SOME KIND OF PURPLE-COLORED

GLASSES.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHERE

THEY SEE THE WORLD.

IRAN IS A POWERFUL COUNTRY.

AND IT IS ON ONE EDGE OF

SAUDI ARABIA.

AND NOW YEMEN HAS FALLEN TO

IRANIAN-BACKED REBELS, SHI'A

REBELS.

AND THEN YOU'VE GOT

HEZBOLLAH IN LEBANON, WHICH

IS IRANIAN-BACKED.

AND YOU HAVE SYRIA, WHICH

MAY BE A CLIENT STATE NOW OF

IRAN.

AND SO THE WHOLE MIDDLE EAST

IS BEING ENGULFED WITH

IRANIAN PRESENCE.

AND ONE ASKS THEMSELVES,

WHAT IS IT THAT THE IRANIANS

NEED WITH LONG-RANGE NUCLEAR

WEAPONS?

WHAT WILL THEY ACCOMPLISH

WITH A MISSILE THAT CAN

REACH THE UNITED STATES?

SINCE WHEN ARE WE GOING TO

ATTACK IRAN?

BUT WE CERTAINLY NEED TO PUT

SANCTIONS ON AND TO CRIPPLE

THEIR ECONOMY UNTIL THEY

BEHAVE THEMSELVES.

AND THEY'RE NOT BEHAVING

THEMSELVES AS LONG AS THEY

CAN KEEP ON TALKING, AND THE

CENTRIFUGE IS WORKING TO

PURIFY AND ENRICH URANIUM,

AND BUILDING NUCLEAR MISSILE

CAPABILITY.

THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG

WITH THE WAY WE'RE LOOKING

AT THIS.

BUT, IN ANY EVENT, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS THE

TIME FOR PRAYER BECAUSE THIS

IS CRUCIAL.

AND, AGAIN, IF YOU READ THE

BIBLE, LOOK AT EZEKIEL 38,

AND THERE IS A COALITION

THAT COMES AGAINST ISRAEL.

AND ONE OF THE KEY PLAYERS

IS SOMETHING CALLED PERSIA.

AND PERSIA IS THERE, AND

WHAT LOOKS LIKE TURKEY AND

WHAT LOOKS LIKE RUSSIA,

THEY'RE ALL IN THERE

TOGETHER AGAINST ISRAEL.

KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN.

JOHN?

John: PAT, KURDISH

FIRES HAVE PUSHED ISIS

MILITANTS OUT OF KABANI,

AFTER A BATTLE THERE THAT

LASTED FOUR MONTHS.

THE KURDS CELEBRATED THE

VICTORY ON MONDAY.

IT WAS A TRIUMPH FOR BOTH

THEM AND THE U.S.-LED

COALITION.

AND A STINGING DEFEAT FOR

ISIS.

THE ISLAMIC FIGHTERS HAD

HOPED TO CAPTURE KABANI, BUT

FAILED AFTER ACTORS FROM THE

KURDS AND WITHERING

FIGHTING.

THE FIGHTERS HAVE FLED FROM

THE AREA.

> EUROPEAN UNION LEADERS

ARE THREATENING MORE

SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA BECAUSE

OF WHAT THEY SEE AS MOSCOW'S

GROWING SUPPORT FOR FIGHTERS

IN EASTERN UKRAINE.

THAT IS AFTER THEY

DOWNGRADED RUSSIA'S CREDIT

RATING TO JUNK RATING.

RUSSIA HAS BEEN HURT NOT

ONLY BY SANCTIONS, BUT ALSO

BY THE SHARP DROP IN OIL

PRICES IN RECENT MONTHS.

RUSSIA MAKES MOST OF ITS

MONEY FROM SELLING OIL.

RUSSIA'S CURRENCY, THE

RUBLE, HAS ALSO PLUNGED IN

INTERNATIONAL TRADING.

PAT, IT HAS GOT TO MAKE YOU

WONDER, HOW MUCH PRESSURE

CAN PUTIN TAKE?

Pat: AND THEY'RE

SAYING, YOU'RE HITTING OUR

POCKETBOOK BECAUSE THAT IS

WHAT IS HAPPENING.

THE RUSSIANS WON'T BE ABLE

TO BORROW.

THEY GO INTO INTERNATIONAL

MARKETS, THEY'RE NO LONGER

TRIPLE "A" CREDIT.

THEY'RE NOW JUNK GRADE.

AND SO WHO IS GOING TO BUY

THEIR BONDS?

NOBODY.

AND WITH THEIR CURRENCY IN A

DOWNWARD SPIRAL, THE SMART

GUY WOULD SAY, OKAY, I'VE

MADE A MISTAKE.

LET'S GET TOGETHER AND

TALK.

BUT IF PUTIN IS AN OBSESSED

IDEOLOG, HE MAY DOUBLE DOWN

AND REALIZE HE HAS A NUCLEAR

ARSON AND HAD CAN START

MAKING SERIOUS TROUBLE.

THAT'S THE THING WE ALL

SHOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT,

THAT HE WOULD BE LIKE THE

WOUNDED BEAR AND START

LASHING OUT AT OTHERS.

LET'S HOPE THAT DOESN'T

HAPPEN.

John: PAT, A MAJOR

ASTEROID FLEW BY EARTH ON

MONDAY, AND AS YOU CAN SEE

IN THIS PHOTO RELEASED BY

NASA, IT HAD ITS OWN SMALL

MOON.

IT WENT BY EARTH AT A

DISTANCE OF THREE-QUARTERS

OF A MILLION MILES.

THE ASTEROID WAS ABOUT A

THIRD OF A MILE WIDE.

AND IT WAS THE BIGGEST THAT

WILL PASS BY EARTH FOR AT

LEAST ANOTHER DECADE, UNTIL

THE YEAR 2027.

ALTHOUGH THIS ASTEROID POSED

NO THREAT TO THE EARTH,

ASTRONOMERS ARE STILL

LOOKING FOR UNKNOWN SPACE

ROCKS THAT COULD EVENTUALLY

HIT OUR PLANET AND DO

EXTREME DAMAGE.

AND NASA IS CURRENTLY

TRACKING ABOUT 11,000

NEAR-EARTH ASTEROIDS.

Pat: I WROTE A BOOK

CALLED "THE END OF THE

AGE."

Wendy: I LOVED IT SO

MUCH THAT I GAVE IT TO MY

DAD FOR CHRISTMAS AND HE

COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN.

AND I JUST GOT AN E-MAIL

FROM MY BROTHER, TRUE

TRUMAN, SAYING HE CAN'T PUT

IT DOWN.

YOU MUST HAVE WRITTEN A GOOD

BOOK.

Pat: IT WAS THE ONLY

BOOK I WROTE THAT WAS

FICTION, BUT IT WAS BASED ON

THE BIBLE.

LATER ON I WAS PRAYING, AND

I SAID, GOD, WHAT IS GOING

TO HAPPEN.

AND THE LORD SPOKE TO ME, I

TOLD YOU WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN AND YOU WROTE IT IN A

BOOK.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Wendy: I READ IT ABOUT

10 YEARS AGO, AND I WANT TO

REREAD IT.

IT IS A PAGE TURNER.

AND WHAT MY DAD TOLD ME, AND

HE KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THE

BIBLE, AND HE SAID HE

LEARNED SO MUCH ABOUT END

TIMES FROM READING THIS

NOVEL.

Pat: THE LORD SHOWED ME

HOW TO INTEGRATE SO MANY OF

THESE SCRIPTURES.

THERE ISN'T ANYTHING THAT

WILL FULFILL THE WORDS OF

JESUS CHRIST IN THE OLAVIT

DISCOURSE.

TALK ABOUT THE END TIMES, AN

ASTEROID HITTING THE EARTH.

MINE WAS, AS I RECALLED, A

KILOMETRE IN DIAMETER, WHICH

IS LIKE SIX-TENTHS OF A

MILE -- IT WASN'T A BIG

THING, BUT IT WEIGHED THREE

BILLION POUNDS.

AND I HAD ALL OF THE THINGS

HAPPENING, BUT IT HAPPENED

VERY QUICKLY.

IT WON'T TAKE LONG.

AND IT FULFILLS PERFECTLY

THE SCRIPTURES HAVING TO DO

WITH THE LAST DAYS.

Wendy: YOU CAN STILL

GET "END OF THE AGE" AS

AMAZON OR CBN.COM.

I KNOW WE SELL IT IN OUR

BOOKSTORE.

IT IS A GREAT READ.

Pat: THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

I'LL GIVE THE LORD THE

CREDIT BECAUSE I WAS MERELY

THE SCRIBE.

Wendy: UP NEXT,

GROUNDBREAKING NEW TREATMENT

FOR SOLDIERS WHO SUFFER

BRAIN INJURIES AND PTSD.

HEALING FOR THEIR INVISIBLE

WOUNDS OF WAR, RIGHT AFTER THISCH

THIS.

Pat: WELL, THERE IS A

MOVIE OUT CALLED "THE

AMERICAN SNIPER," AND IT HAD

GAINED SUCH BOX OFFICE

ATTRACTION I HAD TO GO SEE

IT.

I KNEW MY WIFE WOULDN'T LIKE

IT.

SHE HATES WAR MOVIES.

AND I WANTED TO SEE IT,

LIKING MY OLD MARINE CORPS

TRAINING.

I ASKED MY WIFE IF I COULD

HAVE HER PERMISSION TO GO

SEE A MATINEE LAST FRIDAY.

Wendy: HOW DID YOU LIKE

IT?

Pat: WELL, THERE WAS AN

AWFUL LOT OF SHOOTING.

BUT IT WAS VERY TOUCHING.

BRADLEY COOPER DID A SUPERB

JOB, AND CLINT EASTWOOD DID

A SUBURB JOB.

IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS GOING TO

BE THE HIGHEST GROSSING WAR

MOVIE OF ALL TIME.

Wendy: IT REALLY HIT A

NERVE WITH AMERICAN PEOPLE.

BECAUSE I THINK THE

CHARACTER -- WELL, THE REAL

LIFE GUY THAT BRADLEY COOPER

PLAYED WAS SUCH A GREAT

AMERICAN.

HE WAS A HERO.

Pat: SO HUMBLE.

HE WAS A FAMILY MAN.

IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL THING.

BUT, BOY, COULD HE DRILL

DOWN ON THEM.

THEY CALLED HIM LEGEND.

IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE.

I ASKED A FELLOW, WOULD YOU

GO TO THE MOVIE WITH ME, AND

HE SAID NO.

AND THE OTHER ONE I WENT TO

MY WIFE WANTED TO SEE WAS

"12 YEARS OF SLAVE," AND

THAT WON AN ACADEMY AWARD.

AND "AMERICAN SNIPER" IS UP

FOR EIGHT CATEGORIES.

I DON'T THINK IT WILL WIN

THE BIG PRIZE THIS TIME, BUT

IT IS A TREMENDOUS MOVIE.

ANYHOW, IT TELLS THE STORY

OF A SNIPER, CHRIS KYLE, AND

THE EMOTIONAL WOUNDS OF

WAR.

CAITLIN BURKE IS WITH US NOW

FROM THE CBN NEWS ROOM TO

TELL US ABOUT A CAMPAIGN TO

HELP VETERANS RECOVER FROM

WHAT YOU CALL PTSD.

CAITLIN BURKE, WHAT HAVE YOU

LEARNED.

Reporter: PAT, SOME

WOUNDS CAN BE SEEN AND

OTHERS CAN'T.

AND THOSE ARE OFTEN THE

HARDEST TO UNDERSTAND.

PTSD AND TRAUMATIC BRAIN

INJURIES HAUNT OUR VETERANS

FOR YEARS.

ACCORDING TO THE MOST RECENT

NUMBERS FROM THE DEPARTMENT

OF VETERANS AFFAIRS, AN

ESTIMATED 22 VETERANS PER

DAY COMMITTED SUICIDE.

THAT IS MORE THAN WE LOSE

PER DAY IN COMBAT.

SO AN ORGANIZATION IS

WORKING TO SHINE A LIGHT ON

THE WOUNDS THAT HAUNT OUR

VETERANS, WOUNDS THAT, TO

US, ARE INVISIBLE.

THEIR TIME ON THE

BATTLEFIELD BRINGS STORIES

OF HEROISM, SACRIFICE, AND

OFTEN DEVASTATION.

WE WERE CONDUCTING A

MISSION SUPPORTING SPECIAL

OPERATIONS FORCES JUST SOUTH

OF FALLUJAH, DOWN BY

AMBERIA, AND THE AIRCRAFT

WAS HIT WITH A SURFACE TO

AIR MISSILE.

SO I GOT THE AIRCRAFT SAFE

ON THE GROUND AND THEN WE

ROLLED END OVER END THREE

TIMES, AND IT CAUGHT ON

FIRE.

WE WERE OUT ON A MISSION,

AND WE WERE GOING AFTER A

LOW-LEVEL BAD GUY.

WE HAD JUST MISSED HIM.

WE STARTED TO TAKE FIRE, AND

IN WHAT WAS A

WELL-COORDINATED AMBUSH.

WE HAD TO FIGHT OUR WAY OUT

OF THERE.

IT WAS AN INTENSE TRIP.

YOU KNOW, WE DIDN'T END UP

FINISHING WITH EVERYBODY WE

STARTED WITH.

Reporter: AND THEN

THOSE WARRIORS COME HOME,

READY TO TRANSITION BACK

INTO LIFE WITH THEIR FRIENDS

AND FAMILY, BUT ALL TOO

OFTEN THOSE TRAUMATIC

MOMENTS FROM WAR COME HOME

WITH THEM.

YOU'RE VERY AGITATED.

YOU CAN'T SLEEP.

THE DEMONS COME AT NIGHT.

SO YOU ARE IN THAT

HEIGHTENED STATE OF

AWARENESS.

YOU'RE PERCEIVING MOST

THINGS AS A THREAT.

YOU'RE GOING TO A RESTAURANT

AND YOU CAN'T SIT ANYWHERE

BUT WITH THE DOOR TO YOUR

FRONT.

YOU'RE SCANNING EVERY ROOM

YOU'RE IN FOR EVERY POSSIBLE

WAY IT COULD GO SOUTH AND

THEN WHAT YOUR PLAN OF

ACTION COULD BE.

Reporter: BOTH COKER

AND MARR FELT THE SYMPTOMS

OF PTSD AND TRAUMATIC BRAIN

INJURIES, BUT THEY CONTINUED

TO FUNCTION ON AUTO PILOT.

PREPARE FOR MISSION AND

REHEARSAL.

DO THE MISSION, COME BACK,

AND REFIT ALL OF YOUR

EQUIPMENT.

Reporter: IN THAT

COMMUNITY, HOWEVER, NEGATIVE

STIGMA CAN SURROUND THIS

TYPE OF INVISIBLE WOUND.

THAT OFTEN LEADS VETS TO

IGNORE AN INJURY OR PTSD,

WHICH ONLY MAKES SYMPTOMS

WORSE.

IT CAN SPREAD TO THE BRAIN'S

EMOTIONAL AREAS, AND THEN TO

THE SLEEP CENTER AND MORE,

UNTIL IT BECOMES COMPLETELY

DEBILITATING.

YOU GET TIRED AFTER A

WHILE.

IT'S LIKE, YOU KNOW, YOU

DON'T GIVE UP, BUT YOUR LIKE

DOG GONE, WHAT CAN I DO

NOW.

THE ONLY THING I COULD DO

IS I JUST GOT TO DRINKING.

IF I DRINK, I CAN PROBABLY

QUELL THE STORM IS LITTLE

BIT OR PRESENT MYSELF AT

HOME WITHOUT BEING AN

EMOTIONAL WRECK.

Reporter: BOTH MARR AND

COKER TRIED TO FIND MEDICAL

HELP, LEAVING WITH A BAG

FULL OF MEDICATIONS, BUT NO

REAL, REAL SOLUTION.

BUT THEN THEIR PATHS TOOK

THEM TO THE CARRICK BRAIN

CENTER.

THEY USE NEW TECHNOLOGY TO

HELP FIGURE OUT THE ROOT OF

THE PROBLEM INSTEAD OF JUST

TREATING THE SYSTEM.

WHEN THEY'RE HERE,

THEY'RE HERE ALL DAY, AND

THEY'RE LOOKING AT EYE

MOVEMENTS AND BALANCE AND

JUST HOW THEIR MEMORY IS

WORKING.

WE TAKE ALL OF THAT

INFORMATION, AND THEN WE SIT

DOWN WITH THEM AND WE TRY TO

DIAGRAM OUT EXACTLY WHAT IS

GOING ON.

Reporter: ONE

BREAKTHROUGH THAT CAN ONLY

BE FOUND AT CARRICK IS THE

VERTICAL ACCESS ROTATIONAL

DEVICE.

THIS ALLOWS US TO WORK ON

A LARGER AREA OF BRAIN.

SO IF YOU HAVE SOMEONE WHO

HAS AN INJURY IN THE RIGHT

FRONTAL AREA OF THEIR BRAIN,

WE CAN SEND THEM LEFT WARD

AND BACKWARD, THEN WE CAN

ACTIVATE THAT AREA OF THE

BRAIN.

THE MORE BRAIN THAT IS BEING

ACTIVATED, THE GREATER

CHANCES OF RECOVERY.

Reporter: MARCUS

DETREL, DEPICTED IN THE

MOVIE "LONE SURVIVOR," IS

ONE OF THEIR LARGEST SUCCESS

STORIES.

UNFORTUNATELY, MANY

SUFFERING WITH A BRAIN

INJURY OR PTSD, NEVER MAKE

IT TO A PLACE LIKE CARRICK.

EITHER THEY GET DISCOURAGED

FROM ALL OF THE TREATMENTS

THAT DON'T WORK, OR THEY

DON'T SEEK TREATMENT AT ALL,

AFRAID IT COULD COST THEM

THE JOB THEY LOVE.

FOR MARR, THE POSSIBILITY OF

TAKING HIS ILLNESS BACK TO

THE FIELD WAS TOO LARGE TO

IGNORE.

IT TURNS OUT IT WASN'T

THAT WAY, BUT I CAN'T MISS

THAT CALL FOR A SECOND.

BECAUSE IF I WERE TO HAVE

SOMETHING PARALYZING HAPPEN

TO ME IN A BAD SITUATION,

YOU KNOW, IN THIS LINE OF

WORK THAT MEANS THAT GUYS

DON'T COME HOME AND THEY

DON'T SEE THEIR KIDS.

Reporter: THE CARRICK

BRAIN CENTER HOPES TO RAISE

MONEY AND AWARENESS THROUGH

TREATMENT AND THE INVISIBLE

VET CAMPAIGN.

OFTENTIMES YOU ENCOUNTER

PEOPLE ON THE STREET, AT THE

RESTAURANT, AT THE BANK,

PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN IN

UNIFORM THAT EITHER HAVE HAD

A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY OR

THEY'VE BEEN EXPOSED TO

TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCES THAT

HAS LED THEM DOWN THE ROAD

OF POST TRAUMATIC DISTRESS,

OR, UNFORTUNATELY, THEY'VE

HAD BOTH.

THOSE ARE THINGS THAT YOU

CAN'T SEE THEM.

IT IS NOT LIKE A BROKEN ARM

OR AN INFECTED WOUND, WHERE

YOU MIGHT NEED ANTIBIOTICS

OR A CAST OR A SURGICAL

PROCEDURE.

Reporter: IT IS A

MOVEMENT NOT ONLY TO OPEN

EYES, BUT ERASE THE STIGMA

AROUND THIS KIND OF

INVISIBLE WOUND, IN THE

HOPES THAT FUTURE

GENERATIONS OF SOLDIERS WILL

FEEL COMFORTABLE GOING FOR

HELP.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR

SERVICE.

MY PLEASURE.

I WISH I COULD HAVE DONE

MORE.

Reporter: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS, DALLAS,

TEXAS.

Pat: BOY, THAT IS

MOVING.

THANK YOU, CAITLIN.

OUR THANKS TO THE MEN AND

WOMEN WHO HAVE SURVIVED THAT

TERRIBLE ORDEAL.

AND, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I

KNOW IT MAYBE SOUNDS

POLITICAL, BUT ALL THAT

FIGHTING IN FALLUJAH AND

ANBAR PROVINCE, THOSE GUYS

THAT SACRIFICED, THOSE GUYS

THAT WERE WOUNDED, AND SOME

GAVE UP THEIR LIVES, SOME

GAVE UP LIMBS, AND SOME HAD

THEIR HEADS SMASHED AND HAVE

BEEN BRAIN DAMAGED, WE GAVE

THAT ALL UP WHEN WE ALLOWED

THE IRAQIS TO TAKE OVER THAT

SITUATION.

AND WE WALKED AWAY.

AND WE SAID, OKAY, WE

FINISHED NOW, GOOD-BYE.

AND THE IRAQI ARMY WAS

ILL-TRAINED.

WELL, THE WHOLE MATTER OF

THE FACT THAT THE SHI'ITES

DECIDED TO REMOVE ALL OF THE

SUNNIS FROM LEADERSHIP, AND

SO THEY THE I INLISTED MEN

IN THE ARMY OF THE IRAQ

FORCES WERE NOT PAYING

ATTENTION TO THEIR

LEADERSHIP, AND IT WAS A

CHAOTIC SITUATION.

ISIS COMES IN AND TAKES OVER

ALL OF THOSE AREAS WHERE

THOSE MEN HAD SUFFERED AND

DIED BEFORE.

AND YOU SAY, FOR WHAT?

WE'VE GOT TO LOOK AFTER

THESE MEN AND WOMEN, BUT WE

ALSO NEED TO HOLD ON TO

GAINS THEIR SACRIFICE HAS

BROUGHT TO US.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT.

WE CAN'T HAVE THANKLESS

LEADERSHIP IN WASHINGTON

THAT THROWS AWAY THE

SACRIFICE OF THESE BRAVE

MEN.

WENDY?

Wendy: AMEN.

UP NEXT, AN EXOTIC VACATION

LEAVES A MOM WITH A TOXIC

INFECTION.

FOR SOME PEOPLE, IT ENDS

IN DEATH.

FOR SOME PEOPLE, THE

SICKNESS RUNS THE COURSE OF

25 YEARS.

IT FELT LIKE I WAS IN A

COMA.

I COULDN'T MOVE.

I COULDN'T OPEN MY EYES WITH

MY HEAD.

Wendy: HEAR HOW THIS

WOMAN WAS SUPER NATURALLY

HEALED THROUGH THE POWER OF

THANKFULNESS.

Pat: WE'RE SO GLAD

YOU'RE WITH US.

THIS IS "THE 700 CLUB."

AND I'M BACK AFTER A COUPLE

OF WEEKS HIATUS, WHERE MY

DISTINGUISHED SON HAS BEEN

HOSTING ON A TELETHON, AND

WE'RE VERY PLEASED WITH THE

RESULTS.

ALL OF YOU HAVE HELPED TO

KEEP CBN STRONG FOR THE NEXT

YEAR.

BUT WE'RE ALSO HAVING A

TREMENDOUS RESPONSE TO OUR

LATEST TEACHING.

THE D.V.D. IS CALLED "BE

HEALED."

AND IN IT, OUR GOOD FRIEND,

SCOTT ROSS, AND I TALK ABOUT

THE BIBLICAL MIRACLES OF

HEALING.

AND RIGHT NOW WE'RE GOING TO

SHOW YOU A SEGMENT OF THE

POWER OF THANKFULNESS.

IT BEGINS WITH THE STORY OF

ANGELA HUNTLEY, A WIFE AND

MOTHER WHO CONTRACTED A RARE

DEADLY DISEASE ON A FAMILY

VACATION.

WATCH THIS.

Reporter: THE HUNTLEY

FAMILY HAD A WONDERFUL TIME

ON THEIR DREAM VACATION IN

THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, BUT

WHEN THEY RETURNED HOME,

ANGELA GOT ILL.

TWO WEEKS AFTER WE GOT

HOME, I CAME DOWN WITH WHAT

SEEMED LIKE VIRAL SYMPTOMS.

MY LIMBS FELT SO HEAVY, IT

STARTED TO BECOME HARD TO

LIFT MY HEAD.

AND SOMETIMES HARD TO

BREATHE.

WE'RE TESTING FOR THIS AND

WE'RE TESTING FOR THIS, BUT

EVERYTHING SHOWS UP FINE.

SO THE DOCTORS SEEMED

FRUSTRATED WITH ME, THAT

MAYBE IT WAS ALL IN MY

MIND.

NOW AT THIS TIME, I 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.

AND I GOT A CALL FROM HIM.

THEY TOLD ME THEY FOUND A

CONDITION CALLED SIGWATERA.

AND HE FOUND THAT THE TIME,

THAT THE ONLY PLACE IN THE

WORLD THAT WAS ACTUALLY

TESTING FOR THAT TOXIN WAS

THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII

BECAUSE THEY WERE CONDUCTING

A STUDY.

Reporter: SIGWATERA

TOXIN IS A FOOD-BORNE

ILLNESS WHICH IS CONTRACTED

BY EATING TROPICAL AND

SUBTROPICAL WARM-WATER

FISH.

SEVERAL DAYS LATER WE GOT

BACK A POSITIVE CONFIRMATION

THAT I HAD THAT IN MY

BLOOD.

THE FISH THAT ANY ATE, THEY

WEREN'T RAW.

I WASN'T TRYING SUSHI,

EVERYTHING WAS COOKED WELL.

Reporter: THE TOXIN IS

ODORLESS, TASTELESS, AND

VERY HEAT RESISTANT.

UNFORTUNATELY, THERE IS NO

TREATMENT AND NO CURE.

SOME PEOPLE IT ENDS IN

DEATH.

SOME PEOPLE THE SICKNESS

RUNS A COURSE OF, LIKE, 25

YEARS.

THAT FELT LIKE I WAS IN A

COMA.

I COULDN'T MOVE.

I COULDN'T OPEN MY EYES WITH

MY HEAD.

BUT I COULD HEAR

EVERYTHING.

I COULD HEAR MY CHILDREN

PLAYING, AND I COULDN'T PLAY

WITH THEM.

AND I COULD HEAR OTHER

PEOPLE TAKING CARE OF THEM.

AND I KNEW WHAT WAS GOING

ON, BUT I COULDN'T

PARTICIPATE.

I HAD MY HUSBAND TAKE ME TO

THE ELDERS OF OUR CHURCH AT

THE TIME, AND THEY ANOINTED

ME AND PRAYED FOR ME.

I JUST REMEMBER 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, I KNOW THOSE

SCRIPTURES.

AND I KNOW I'M SUPPOSED TO

THANK HIM, AND I HAD -- 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 IS 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."

SO I FOUND MYSELF YELLING

"BECAUSE YOU WILL BE

GLORIFIED.

BECAUSE YOU WILL BE

GLORIFIED."

Reporter: ANGELA WASN'T

HEALED AT THAT MOMENT, BUT

SOMETHING HAD SHIFTED.

WHILE SHE FOUND STRENGTH IN

PRAISING AND THANKING GOD,

HER HEALING WOULD COME WITH

REVELATION.

WHEN YOU SEE GRATITUDE,

THE ENEMY DOESN'T KNOW THAT

LANGUAGE.

I FELT SOMETHING LIFT OFF

ME.

I FELT SOMETHING 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,

HEALED, PHYSICALLY HEALED,

REDEEMED AND RESCUED.

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.

AND IT JUST HIT ME.

AS MUCH AS I AM SAVED, I AM

HEALED.

AND IT HIT AGAIN.

AND I KEPT FEELING -- I

UNDERSTAND NOW WHY SO MANY

PEOPLE -- IN CERTAIN

INSTANCES, JESUS HAS SAID,

YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU

WELL.

BECAUSE I JUST KNEW I WAS

HEALED.

MY HUSBAND CAME DOWNSTAIRS,

AND I'M LAYING THERE, JUST

PROPPED UP, AND I SAID, GOD

JUST HEALED ME.

AND I GOT UP.

I MEAN, I GOT UP.

MY KIDS WERE 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 SO OVERWHELMED BY THE

HEALING.

BUT IN THAT MOMENT, I LOOKED

IN THE EYES OF MY FOUR

LITTLE BOYS, AND I REALIZED

THEY WOULD ALWAYS KNOW AND

NEVER DOUBT THAT JESUS IS

HEALING.

Reporter: NOW, HERE IS

A LADY THAT -- I MEAN SHE

WAS DYING.

AND GOD TELLS HER TO GIVE

THANKSGIVING.

THAT'S A LITTLE DIFFICULT.

I'M LYING HERE DYING, AND

I'M GOING TO THANK GOD, FOR

WHAT?

I'LL BE WITH YOU SHORTLY,

JESUS.

SO WHERE DOES THANKSGIVING

COME INTO THE HEALING

EQUATION?

Pat: REMEMBER WHAT PAUL

WROTE?

HE SAID, "BE ANXIOUS FOR

NOTHING, BUT IN EVERYTHING

BY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION,

WITH THANKSGIVING, LET YOUR

REQUEST BE KNOWN UNTO GOD,

AND THE PEACE OF GOD THAT

SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING

WILL BE THROUGH CHRIST

JESUS."

SO BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING.

WHAT SHE NEEDS TO DO IS

START THANKING GOD.

THERE IS SOMETHING IN

PRAISE.

SO YOU'RE THANKING HIM IN

ADVANCE.

JESUS SAID, WHEN YOU STAND

PRAYING, BELIEVE THAT YOU

HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED AND

YOU WILL HAVE THE THING THAT

YOU SAY.

YOU NEED TO BEGIN TO THANK

GOD IN ADVANCE.

THANK YOU, LORD, FOR THE

MONEY YOU'RE GOING TO SEND

ME.

THANK YOU FOR THE HEALING.

THANK YOU, LORD, YOU'RE

TAKING AWAY THE CANCER.

THANK YOU, LORD, THAT YOU'RE

DOING THIS.

DON'T COMPLAIN.

HE KNOWS YOUR SUFFERING.

SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO TELL

HIM HOW MUCH HURT YOU'VE

GOT.

BUT IN EVERYTHING, BY PRAYER

AND SUPPLICATION, WITH

THANKSGIVING -- SO, YES,

THANKSGIVING IS KEY.

AND WE NEED TO HAVE A

THANKFUL HEART.

AND SOMEHOW THERE IS

SOMETHING THAT LIFTS OUR

SPIRITS WHEN WE BEGIN TO

PRAISE THE LORD.

AND THEN THE ANSWERS BEGIN

TO COME AND OPENS THE

CHANNEL TO HEAVEN.

Wendy: WOW, THAT IS

GOOD TEACHING.

Pat: WELL, I'M HAPPY TO

HEAR THAT.

IT COMES OUT OF MANY, MANY

YEARS.

BUT THIS IS ALL IN THIS

D.V.D. CALLED "BE HEALED,"

WHICH WE'RE OFFERING TO

PEOPLE THIS WINTER.

AND IT'S AVAILABLE IF YOU

CAN CALL IN.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO RECEIVE

IT.

THIS IS FOR THOSE WHO JOIN

OUR "700 CLUB."

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY.

BUT YOU NEED THIS.

Wendy: I'VE WATCHED IT,

AND, OF COURSE, WE PROMOTED

IT ON TELETHON.

AND THIS WILL BE -- THERE

ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN

WAITING FOR THEIR HEALING,

AND THIS WILL BE THAT

ENCOURAGEMENT THEY NEED TO

BELIEVE GOD.

IT IS TIME TO BE HEALED, AND

GOD WANTS TO HEAL THEM.

Pat: THEY CAN PLAY THIS

AND WATCH, AND THEIR SPIRITS

ARE LIFTED.

THEY LEARN THE PRINCIPLES OF

HEALING.

THEY LEARN EXAMPLES OF THOSE

WHO HAVE BEEN HEALED.

IT'S ALL THERE FOR YOU.

SO CALL IN.

SAY YOU CAN COUNT ON ME.

AND WE WANT TO MAKE THIS

AVAILABLE TO THOSE OF YOU

WHO JOIN OUR "700 CLUB."

SO IT'S MY PRIVILEGE TO SAY,

THIS IS FOR YOU.

I APPRECIATE SCOTT.

I HAVE A LOT OF FUN WITH

SCOTT.

Wendy: HE IS

ONE-OF-A-KIND.

Pat: THERE IS SOME

ELECTRICITY THAT TAKES

PLACE.

ALL RIGHT.

Wendy: DEFINITELY

ONE-OF-A-KIND.

WE LOVE HIM.

STILL AHEAD, SHE WALKED AWAY

FROM IT ALL.

BUT WHY?

SHEILA ROSS TALKS CANDIDLY

ABOUT HER STRUGGLE WITH

DEPRESSION AND HOW SHE WAS

LOVED BACK TO LIFE.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

LIBYAN MILITANTS ARE NOW

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

GOING BACK IN TIME, 1988, A

LADY NAMED SHEILA WALSH

JOINED ME AS A CO-HOSTESS OF

"THE 700 CLUB," AND THERE

WAS NEVER A DULL MOMENT WITH

SHEILA SITTING BESIDE ME ON

THE SET.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK.

Wendy: WHEN SCOTTISH

BORN VOCALIST SHEILA WALSH

JOINED "THE 700 CLUB" IN

1998 AS A CO-HOST, HE

HONESTY QUICKLY MADE HER A

FAN FAVORITE.

FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS, SHE

INTERVIEWED CELEBRITIES,

ATHLETES AND AUTHORS, AND

SHARED THE LOVE OF CHRIST

WITH MILLIONS OF VIEWERS.

ON THE SURFACE, EVERYTHING

WAS FINE.

THEN IN 1992, WITHOUT

WARNING, SHEILA LEFT THE JOB

AND MINISTRY SHE LOVED.

Pat: HEY, SHE IS BACK.

PLEASE WELCOME BACK OUR DEAR

FRIEND, SHEILA WALSH.

YOU'RE LOOKING GOOD,

DAD.

Pat: GOD BLESS YOU.

I HAVE SOMETHING TO TELL

YOU.

I DON'T THINK I EVER TOLD

YOU.

CAN I TELL YOU MY DEEP

SECRET?

WHAT?

Pat: WE WERE

AUDITIONING FOR THE POSITION

OF CO-HOSTESS, OR WHATEVER,

ON THIS PROGRAM.

AND SO I HAD A GROUP OF

VIDEOS SENT TO ME.

AND I GOT ONE OF THIS

SINGER, GOSPEL SINGER, FROM

BRITAIN NAMED SHEILA WALSH.

AND I PUT THAT THING ON, AND

WHEN YOU BEGAN TO SING,

THERE WAS SUCH AN ANOINTING

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT I

COULD HARDLY STAND IT.

I SAID, THESE TH SHE'S THE

ONE.

BINGO.

YOU HAD IT, DARLING.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT.

ANK YOU.

I REMEMBER SOMETHING YOU

TOLD ME AFTER THE VERY FIRST

SHOW.

YOU SAID, YOU ARE NOT THE

SCOTTISH BARBARA WALTERS.

WHICH WAS VERY APPARENT TO

ANYONE WHO WAS LISTENING IN

THAT DAY.

BUT THAT IS BEAUTIFUL.

THANK YOU.

Pat: IT WAS SUCH

INCREDIBLE ANOINTING.

IT WAS SUCH A THRILL WHEN

PEOPLE SAW YOU.

WE HAD A LOT OF FUN

TOGETHER.

WE HAD A LOT OF FUN.

DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY DAYS

THE CREW WOULD SAY TO ME,

YOU'RE FIRED TODAY.

YOU'RE DEFINITELY FIRED

TODAY.

Pat: ANYHOW, WE JUST

LOOKED BACK AT SOME OF THE

GREAT TIMES THAT YOU HAD ON

THE SHOW.

WHAT WAS GOING INSIDE YOU

THAT YOU FINALLY --

SOMETHING HAPPENED THAT YOU

HAD TO LEAVE.

WHAT WAS IT?

IT'S INTERESTING.

BACK THEN -- THAT WAS IN

1992, I HAD NO IDEA WHAT

CLINICAL DEPRESSION WAS.

AND CERTAINLY NOT AS A

CHRISTIAN AND CERTAINLY NOT

AS ANY KIND OF CHRISTIAN

LEADER.

BUT I WAS DISAPPEARING A

LITTLE MORE EVERY DAY.

I COULDN'T SLEEP.

I WOULD WAKE UP AT 3:00 IN

THE MORNING TERRIFIED,

ASKING GOD TO HELP ME.

I WOULD GO TO THE A.T.M.

MACHINE AND COULDN'T

REMEMBER MY PIN.

I WOULD BE INTERVIEWING A

GUEST AND I WOULDN'T

REMEMBER WHAT I WAS SUPPOSED

TO ASK.

I FELT LIKE I WAS LOSING MY

MIND.

YOU KNOW WHAT BLESSES ME

ABOUT YOU, PAT?

PARM

Pat: WHAT'S THAT?

WE'RE PART OF A

MINISTRY.

BUT YOU WERE THE MOST

COMPASSIONATE, KIND,

FATHERLY FIGURE TO ME.

AT THE TIME WHEN MENTAL

ILLNESS HAD THE CURB APPEAL

OF AIDS BACK THEN.

IT WAS A HUGE STIGMA.

BUT YOU NEVER FOR A MOMENT

MADE ME FEEL LIKE THAT.

YOU WERE NOTHING BUT

SUPPORTIVE AND KIND.

Pat: YOU WERE PART OF

THE FAMILY.

THAT'S THE LEAST WE COULD

DO, IS SUPPORT EACH OTHER.

THE THING OF IT IS, DURING

THAT TIME YOU WERE DOING

CRAZY THINGS.

YOU WOULD DO A SHOW AND THEN

GET ON A PLANE AND GO HAVE A

COUPLE OF CONCERTS FOR

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.

AND YOU WOULD COME BACK HOME

ABOUT MIDNIGHT OR 2:00 IN

THE MORNING, AND YOU WOULD

BE BACK ON THE AIR.

THAT'S ENOUGH TO KILL

ANYBODY.

I KNOW, IT WAS

RIDICULOUS.

I THINK SOMETIMES WHEN YOU

KNOW THERE IS TROUBLE

INSIDE, IT IS ALMOST LIKE

YOU'RE LIVING ON THE EDGE OF

A VOLCANO AND YOU CAN FEEL

THIS DISTANT RUMBLE, SO YOU

JUST STAY BUSY.

I MEAN, I HAVE LEARNED THE

DISCIPLINE OF QUIET.

JUST BEING STILL AND KNOWING

THAT HE IS GOD.

ONE OF THE GREATEST THINGS I

LEARNED IN THE HOSPITAL IS

THAT I'M NOT THE GOOD NEWS.

JESUS IS.

THAT'S A HUGE RELIEF.

Pat: I'M SO GLAD, LORD,

THAT YOU'VE TAKEN THE

BURDEN.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL, CLINICAL DEPRESSION.

A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK IT WAS

JUST IN YOUR MIND, HEY, GET

OVER IT.

AND THAT STILL EXISTS.

IF YOU HAVE A BRAIN TUMOR,

YOU CAN RALLY A PRAYER CHAIN

AROUND THE WORLD BECAUSE YOU

CAN SEE IT ON AN X-RAY.

BUT IT IS NOT A LACK OF

FAITH.

IT IS A LACK OF CHEMICALS.

EVEN TO THIS DAY, I STILL

TAKE MEDICATION EVERY DAY.

AND I PROBABLY WILL UNTIL

THE LORD COMES BACK AND HE

COULD HEAL ME LIKE THAT.

Pat: WHAT ARE THE

MEDICATIONS?

I TAKE SIMBOLTA.

Pat: WHAT DOES THAT

DO?

IT IS SELECTIVE SEROTONIN

REUPTAKE INHIBITOR.

SO YOU'RE ABLE TO THINK

CLEARLY.

Pat: CAN YOU GO OUT IN

THE SUN AND GET THE SAME

AMOUNT OF SUN?

I DON'T THINK YOU CAN.

I'LL MOVE TO MIAMI NEXT

MONT MONTH AND I'LL GET

BACK TO YOU.

Pat: GET OFF OF THE

SIMBOLTA AND GO OUT IN THE

SUN.

I'M CATCHING SOME VITAMIN

"D."

YOU HAVE A BOOK CALLED,

"LOVED BACK TO LIFE."

WHO LOVED YOU?

FIRST OF ALL, YOU.

THE FIRST NIGHT IN THE

HOSPITAL -- I MEAN TO GO

FROM "700 CLUB" TO A

HOSPITAL, LOCKED UP IN A

PSYCH WARD -- YOU KNOW THE

PSALMS THAT SAYS THE LORD IS

CLOSE TO THE BROKENHEARTED?

I WROTE IN MY JOURNAL THAT

NIGHT, I NEVER KNEW YOU

LIVED SO CLOSE TO THE

FLOOR.

TO HAVE THE COMPANIONSHIP OF

CHRIST, AND GOOD SERVICE,

GOOD COUNSELLING, AND GOOD

FRIENDS.

AND A MINISTRY CALLED "WOMEN

OF FAITH."

THIS IS OUR 20th YEAR OF

THE PRIVILEGE OF MINISTERING

TO FIVE MILLION WOMEN.

Pat: HOW MANY WOMEN DO

YOU THINK HAVE THIS

PROBLEM?

OH, MILLIONS.

I GOT A LETTER FROM A PASTOR

IN SEATTLE, AND HE SAID

YOU'RE COMING TO OUR TOWN,

AND OUR CHURCH IS ALL GOING,

MY WIFE IS NOT GOING.

SHE HAS SEVERE DEPRESSION,

AND TAKES MEDICATION, AND NO

ONE IN THE CHURCH KNOWS.

AND THEY SAID, WOULD YOU

MEET WITH HER PRIVATELY.

AND I SAID, ABSOLUTELY.

I'LL NEVER FORGET, SHE

WOULDN'T MAKE EYE CONTACT.

AND I SAID, LET ME TELL YOU

WHAT GOD DID FOR ME, AND I

SHARED MY STORY.

AND AFTER A WHILE, WE ENDED

UP ON OUR KNEES.

I THOUGHT, LORD, I WOULD GO

ALL OF THAT AGAIN JUST FOR

THAT ONE WOMAN TO KNOW

YOU'RE NOT ALONE.

Pat: BUT THERE ARE

MILLIONS.

YEAH.

Pat: AND A LOT OF IT IS

SECRET.

THEY'RE ASHAMED OF IT?

I KNOW.

AND THEY SHOULDN'T BE.

YOU DON'T SAY TO SOMEBODY

WHO WEARS GLASSES, WHERE IS

YOUR FAITH?

ITS RIDICULOUS.

Pat: AND THEY THINK THE

WOMEN ARE HYSTERICAL, AND

THE SADNESS COMES OVER

THEM.

WINSTON CHURCHILL HAD WHAT

HE CALLED THE BLACK DOG THAT

CAME ON HIM.

AND AS DID ABRAHAM

LINCOLN.

AND HE SAID, IF THIS WAS

SHARED AMONG ALL OF

HUMANITY, I'M NOT SURE WE

COULD BEAR IT.

PEOPLE THINK IT IS A SIGN OF

WEAKNESS, AND IT IS REALLY

NOT.

WE ALL HAVE SOME KIND OF

WEAKNESS.

SOME HAVE IT IN THEIR

STOMACH OR HEART, AND I JUST

HAPPEN TO HAVE IT IN MY

BRAINS.

Pat: BUT YOU DON'T ACT

LIKE IT.

YOU'RE CHEERY AS ANYTHING.

WELL, THAT'S BECAUSE I'M

STILL ON MY MEDICINE.

Pat: I DON'T WANT

SHEILA OFF HER MEDS.

HELP US.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: YOU'RE SO SWEET.

IT IS SO GOOD TO SEE YOU.

YOU, TOO.

Pat: I LOVE YOU AND THE

LORD.

YOU DO SUCH A FANTASTIC

JOB.

MY FAMILY LOVES YOU AND

PRAYS FOR YOU.

Pat: PLEASE DO.

I'M JUST MOVING ALONG.

THE LORD HAS JUST BLESSED

ME.

I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

THEY SALTHEY'RE TELLING ME

THEY'RE PRAYING FOR ME TO

GET TO BE 100.

I WOULD HAVE GONE TO

"AMERICAN SNIPER" WITH YOU.

I WENT TO SEE IT.

IT WAS FANTASTIC.

IT MADE ME PROUD TO BE AN

AMERICAN.

Pat: AMEN.

SHEILA'S LATEST BOOK IS

CALLED "LOVED BACK TO

LIFE."

AND HOW YOU CAN EXPERIENCE

THE COURAGE TO HAVE LOVE.

I HOPE IT'S GOING TO BE A

GOOD ONE.

WHERE CAN THEY GET IT?

ANYWHERE WHERE BOOKS ARE

SHOULDER, AMAZON, CHRISTIANS

BOOKSTORES.

Pat: COME BACK MORE

OFTEN.

DON'T JUST WAIT UNTIL YOU

WRITE A BOOK.

FOR A CUP OF TEA.

Pat: ALL RIGHT, SHEILA

WALSH, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

WENDY, WHAT IS NEXT.

Wendy: GREAT TO SEE

SHEILA.

UP NEXT, PAT RETURNS TO THE

HOT SEAT WHEN WE "BRING IT

ON."

ASHLEY SAYS, "I KNOW IT IS A

SIN TO MARRY SOMEONE WHO

ISN'T A CHRISTIAN, BUT IS IT

SO BAD TO DATE A GUY AND SEE

IF IT MAY LEAD UP TO THAT.

MAYBE I HAVE A CHANCE OF

CONVERTING HIM IF I CONTINUE

THIS RELATIONSHIP."

WELL, SEE WHAT PAT HAS TO

SAY ON THIS ISSUE AND MUCH

MORE COMING UP.

Pat: I WANT TO SAY A

WORD FOR REGENT UNIVERSITY.

I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THE

QUALITY OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

COMING.

REGENT WAS JUST VOTED BY

U.S. NEWS AND WORLD REPORT,

THE NUMBER 11 SCHOOL OF OUR

ONLINE CLASSES AND

COURSES -- NUMBER 11 IN THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

THE ONLY COLLEGE IN THE

STATE OF VIRGINIA THAT HAD

THAT DESIGNATION.

AND THEY HAVE A MOOT COURT

TEAM IN THE UNDERGRAD

DEPARTMENT.

AND THE MOOD COURT TEAM WON

OUT AND THEY CAME IN THIRD

IN THE NATION.

THEY BEAT THE BIG BOYS.

I'M REALLY EXCITED.

YOU CAN ENROLL NOW.

WE'VE GOT MASTER'S PROGRAMS

AND DOCTORAL PROGRAMS.

1-800THE NUMBER IS ON THE

SCREEN, YOU CAN CALL.

YOU'VE GOT A SUMMER

SESSION.

AND THE SPRING SESSION IS

UNDER WAY.

I THINK THEY'RE STILL TAKING

SOME PEOPLE.

THEY'RE ABOUT TO FILL UP FOR

SPRING.

BUT NEXT FALL IS

TREMENDOUS.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR ABOUT

9,000 STUDENTS.

IT IS JUST EXCITING ABOUT IT

ALL.

SO GO TO YOUR PHONES AND

CALL IN.

YOU CAN BE PART OF AMERICA'S

MOST EXCITING CHRISTIAN

GRADUATE UNIVERSITY.

Wendy: AMEN.

IT'S TIME TO "BRING IT ON."

ASHLEY WRITES, "I HAVE BEEN

DATING THIS GUY FOR ABOUT

FOUR MONTHS.

HE IS NOT A CHRISTIAN.

HE DOESN'T BELIEVE, BUT HE

SEEMS TO BE A BIT CONFUSED.

I KNOW IT IS A SIN TO MARRY

SOMEONE WHO ISN'T A

CHRISTIAN, AND WE ARE FAR

FROM THAT POINT.

BUT IS IT SO BAD TO DATE

THIS GUY AND SEE IF IT MAY

LEAD UP TO THAT.

MAYBE I HAVE A CHANCE OF

CONVERTING HIM IF I CONTINUE

THIS RELATIONSHIP."

Pat: FIRST OF ALL, IT

IS NOT A SIN TO DATE

SOMEBODY WHO IS NOT A

CHRISTIAN.

IT IS NOT A CHRISTIAN.

IT IS JUST STUPID.

AND STUPID IS DIFFERENT FROM

SINFUL.

THE BIBLE SAYS, DON'T BE

UNEQUALLY YOLKED TOGETHER

WITH UNBELIEVERS.

WHY NOT?

BECAUSE THE UNBELIEVER WILL

TAKE YOU DOWN AND ALWAYS BE

CRITICIZING.

AND, LIKE, LET'S GO OUT TO

THE BAR AND THROW DOWN A FEW

SHOTS.

WELL, I DON'T DRINK.

WELL, COME ON, DO YOU LOVE

ME OR NOT.

WELL, LET'S GO OUT AND HAVE

A LITTLE CASUAL SEX.

IT IS ALWAYS TEMPTATION.

LET'S WATCH A LITTLE PORN

TONIGHT -- WELL, I DON'T DO

THAT.

WELL, HONEY, IF YOU REALLY

LOVE ME.

THAT'S WHAT GOES ON, AND

YOU'LL HAVE THAT TENSION

CONSTANTLY.

AS FAR AS MARRIAGE, DON'T BE

UNEQUALLY YOLKED.

THE ANSWER IS THAT IS

WRONG.

DON'T DO IT.

WHY DON'T YOU FIND SOMEBODY

WHO LOVES THE LORD.

IT WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER.

Wendy: LYNNE WRITES, "I

HAVE A SIMPLE QUESTION, IS

IT ACCEPTABLE FOR ME TO PRAY

IN TONGUES IF I'M GOING

AROUND DOING MY HOUSEWORK OR

WILL THAT BE CONSIDERED

DISRESPECTFUL.

I'M CONFUSED ABOUT IT.

I REALIZE SOMEONE MUST HAVE

INTERPRETATION.

BUT FOR MANY YEARS NOW I AM

UNABLE T TO INTERPRET."

Pat: I KNOW A CLEANING

LADY WHO PRAYS ALL OF THE

TIME AND SPEAKS IN TONGUES.

WOULD YOU PRAY IF YOU WERE

GOING AROUND YOUR HOUSEHOLD,

OH, GOD, HELP ME BE A BETTER

PERSON?

WHY NOT DO IT IN TONGUES.

GOD IS WITH US.

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS WITHIN

YOU.

AND YOU'RE, IN A SENSE,

TALKING TO SOMEBODY THAT IS

PART OF YOU.

YOU SAY, FATHER, HELP ME DO

THIS, OR BE WITH ME OR SHOW

ME THE WAY CONSTANTLY.

WE SHOULD BE IN PRAYER ALL

OF THE TIME.

WE LITERALLY SHOULD BE IN

PRAYER CONSTANTLY.

Wendy: I PRAY IN THE

SPIRIT WHEN I'M DRIVING.

AND WHENEVER I GET IN AN

ELEVATOR, I DON'T KNOW, THE

DOORS CLOSE AND I JUST START

PRAYING.

MURRAY RIGHTS, "VII HAVE

BEEN A "700 CLUB" FOR MANY

YEARS.

I'M 67 YEARS OLD, AND STILL

WORKING BECAUSE RETIREMENT

MONEY DOESN'T COVER OUR

EXPENSES.

I'M THINKING ABOUT A REVERSE

MORTGAGE, BUT HAVE DOUBTS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: THEY WILL NOT TAKE

YOUR HOUSE FROM YOU AS LONG

AS YOU ARE ALIVE AND LIVEIN

IT.

WHEN YOU DO LEAVE, YOU DON'T

HAVE TO PAY IT OFF.

BUT SOMEBODY HAS TO PAY IT

OFF.

NAMELY, THE UNITED STATES

TAXPAYER.

SO IT'S NOT A GOOD DEAL FOR

THE TAXPAYERS, BUT FOR MOST

PEOPLE IT IS A PRETTY GOOD

DEAL.

BUT YOU NEED TO ANALYZE WHAT

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, AND

GET AN ADVISOR TO HELP YOU

ON IT.

IT COULD BE A GOOD DEAL FOR

YOU.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS: "FOR GOD HAS

NOT GIVEN US A SPIRIT OF

FEAR, BUT OF POWER AND OF

LOVE AND OF A SOUND MIND."

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON, FOR

WENDY AND ALL OF US, WE'LL

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

AND MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU

AS WE CONTINUE TO SERVE

HIM.

AND WE'LL ASK ABOUT

CYBERATTACKS, AND THAT'S

COMING UP ON OUR PROGRAM

TOMORROW.

BYE.

INVISIBLE VETS WITH

COMBAT WOUNDS YOU CAN'T
