Wendy: TURN UP THE

VOLUME, THE WHOLE COUNTRY

IS INVITED TO THIS PARTY.

IN ORDER FOR US TO

REACH THE KINGDOM, WE

REALIZED WE NEED TO REACH

THE MASSIVE POPULATION.

Wendy: PLUS...ONE

FORMER MODEL EXPLAINS WHY

SHOW BUSINESS ISN'T AS

GLAMOROUS AS YOU MAY

THINK.

> AND THEN, ACID REFLUX

CURED AT LAST, ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

IF YOU HAVE AN OUNCE OF

COMPASSION IN YOU, YOUR

HEART WILL BLEED FOR WHAT

IS HAPPENING TO THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

THE TOP RUNNER LOOKS LIKE

THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF

CRIMINAL SANCTIONS.

WE DON'T KNOW THAT FOR

SURE.

BUT THE HANDLES OF TOP

SECRET DOCUMENTS IN

HILLARY CLINTON'S E-MAILS

AND SERVERS AND SO FORTH,

APPARENTLY VIOLATES LAW.

WE DON'T KNOW ALL OF THAT

FOR SURE.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, THERE

ARE OTHER ALLEGATIONS

BEING MADE, AND THEY'VE

TURNED THE COMPUTER OVER

TURNED THE COMPUTER OVER

TO THE DEPARTMENT OF

JUSTICE, WHICH ISN'T

EXACTLY A HIGH-TECH

INSTITUTION.

SO THINK WHAT THEY'VE GOT

AS A BACKUP.

WHEN YOU SEE THE

TREMENDOUS BENCH STRENGTH

OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY,

MANY, MANY INTELLIGENT,

ACTIVE, VIGOROUS GOVERNORS

OF MAJOR STATES, AND

PEOPLE IN THE SENATE AND

OTHERS -- IT IS AMAZING

THE STRENGTH THAT THEY

HAVE.

AND THEY'VE GOT ONE LONE

WOMAN WHO APPARENTLY MIGHT

WIND UP IN JAIL.

IT IS REALLY TOUGH STUFF.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

THE LATEST REVELATION

ABOUT HER E-MAILS COMES AS

MRS. CLINTON IS FALLING IN

THE POLLS.

AND VOTERS ARE QUESTIONING

HER HONESTY.

GARY LANE HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE NEW

REVELATION OF HILLARY

CLINTON'S OFFICIAL USE OF

PERSONAL E-MAILS CAME FROM

THE INTELLIGENCE

COMMUNITY'S INSPECTOR

GENERAL.

THE I.G.NOTIFIED MEMBERS

OF CONGRESS THAT TWO OF

THE FOUR CLASSIFIED

E-MAILS FOUND ON HER

PRIVATE SERVER WERE LISTED

AS TOP SECRET.

CLINTON'S CAMPAIGN SAYS IT

WILL TURN OVER HER SERVER

TO THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT.

THE F.B.I. IS ALREADY

INVESTIGATING WHETHER THE

FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE

SENT OR RECEIVED

CLASSIFIED INFORMATION ON

AN UNSECURED SYSTEM.

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HAVE

BEEN PUSHING THE STATE

DEPARTMENT AND

MRS. CLINTON FOR DETAILS

OF MORE THAN 50,000

E-MAILS KEPT ON A PRIVATE

SERVER AT THE CLINTON'S

HOME.

SHE HAS ALREADY ADMITTED

TO DELETING AS MANY AS

30,000 E-MAILS, AND SHE

INSISTS NONE OF THEM WERE

CLASSIFIED WHEN SHE SENT

THEM.

BUT SHE WAS USING A

PRIVATE, NOT A GOVERNMENT,

E-MAIL SERVER, AND THERE

IS NO EVIDENCE SHE WAS

USING ENCRYPTION TO

PREVENT HER E-MAILS FROM

BEING SPIE SPIED ON.

CURRENT SECRETARY OF STATE

JOHN KERRY ADMITS RECENT

HACKS OF U.S. GOVERNMENT

COMPUTERS SUGGEST THE

CHINESE AND RUSSIANS ARE

VERY LIKELY READING HIS

E-MAILS.

THE E-MAIL INVESTIGATION

IS DAMAGING CLINTON'S

POPULARITY NATIONWIDE, AND

ESPECIALLY IN IOWA, A

STATE PRESIDENT OBAMA

CARRIED IN THE LAST

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

WHILE SHE LEADS AMONG

DEMOCRATS, A RECENT POLL

SHOWS HILLARY LOSING TO

FOUR REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES

IN IOWA: MARCO RUBIO,

SCOTT WALKER, BEN CARSON,

AND MIKE HUCKABEE.

IT ISN'T JUST THIS

ISSUE THAT IS CAUSING

HILLARY TO LOSE SUPPORT.

A GROWING NUMBER OF

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATES ARE NOW

TARGETING MRS. CLINTON'S

RECORD AS SECRETARY OF

STATE.

FORMER FLORIDA GOVERNOR

JEB BUSH SAYS THE ISLAMIC

STATE GREW AS THE UNITED

STATES DISENGAGED FROM THE

MIDDLE EAST.

HE BLAMES THE PRESIDENT,

ALONG WITH HILLARY

CLINTON.

AND WHERE WAS THE

SECRETARY OF STATE?

WHERE WAS SECRETARY OF

STATE CLINTON IN ALL OF

THIS?

LIKE THE PRESIDENT

HIMSELF, SHE HAD OPPOSED

THE SURGE, AND THEN JOINED

AND CLAIMING CREDIT FOR

ITS SUCCESS.

AND THEN STOOD BY AS THAT

HARD-WON VICTORY BY

AMERICAN AND ALLIED FORCES

WAS THROWN AWAY.

IN ALL OF HER

RECORD-SETTING TRAVELS,

SHE STOPPED BY IRAQ

EXACTLY ONCE.

Reporter: WITH THE

IOWA CAUCASUS HALF A YEAR

AWAY, THERE IS STILL

PLENTY OF TIME FOR HILLARY

CLINTON TO RECOVER FROM

HER DROPPING POLL NUMBERS,

BUT HER POLITICAL FUTURE

MAY DEPEND ON WHAT ELSE

TURNS UP IN THAT E-MAIL

INVESTIGATION.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, GENERAL

PEPETRAEUS IS A MILITARY

HERO, AND A STRATEGIST OF

THE HIGHEST ORDER, AND YET

HE WAS FOUND GUILTY

BECAUSE HE GAVE HIS SERVER

OR CONFIDENTIAL E-MAILS TO

HIS GIRLFRIEND IN ORDER TO

WRITE A BIOGRAPHY, AND

THEY CONVICTED HIM.

AND I THINK HE HAS SOME

SORT OF SUSPENDED SENTENCE

OR HOME ARREST.

NEVERTHELESS, HE WAS

CONVICTED.

HAVE WE GOT A DOUBLE

STANDARD?

ONE FOR A DISTINGUISHED

GENERAL AND ANOTHER FOR A

CLINTON?

I DON'T THINK SO.

I THINK IT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

IT IS A SHAME.

IT REALLY IS A SHAME.

IT BREAKS YOUR HEART TO

SEE THIS IS THE GREATEST

NATION ON EARTH, AND WE'RE

INVOLVED IN THIS KIND OF

THING.

WE'VE GOT A CASINO OWNER,

YOU KNOW, AND A BEAUTY

PAGEANT OWNER AS A

FRONT-RUNNER OF THE

REPUBLICANS.

AND WE'VE GOT A LADY WHO

MAY BE -- MAY BE FACING

SOME KIND OF CRIMINAL

CHARGE AS A FRONT-RUNNER

FOR THE DEMOCRATS.

THIS IS THE GREATEST

COUNTRY ON EARTH.

WHY CAN'T WE COME FORWARD

WITH A LEADER WHO HAS

INTEGRITY AND INTELLIGENCE

AND EXPERIENCE TO LEAD

THIS GREAT LAND.

Wendy: IT WOULD BE

NICE IF WE COULD FOCUS ON

THE ISSUES INSTEAD OF

SCANDALS.

Pat: WE'VE GOT A

MEDIA SO OBSESSED WITH

THIS, HE SAID THIS AND

WE'VE GOT YOU THERE.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, PRAY

FOR THIS GREAT LAND

BECAUSE WE LOVE IT, AND WE

WANT IT TO STAY STRONG.

> IN OTHER NEWS, A YOUNG

COUPLE FROM MISSISSIPPI

HAS BEEN ARRESTED ON

CHARGES OF TRYING TO JOIN

ISIS.

AND ONE OF THEM IS A BLACK

GIRL.

A LOVELY GIRL, WHO IS

APPARENTLY THE DAUGHTER OF

A POLICE OFFICER, MARRIED

TO A WHITE MAN.

AND THE TWO OF THEM WERE

THINKING OF GOING TO JOIN

ISIS?

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY.

Efrem: PAT, THE

COUPLE GOT MARRIED IN JUNE

AND TOLD THEIR FAMILIES

THEY WERE GOING ON THEIR

HONEYMOON, BUT THE F.B.I.

HAD BEEN KEEPING TABS ON

THEM.

UNDERCOVER AGENTS,

PRETENDING TO BE

TERRORISTS, CORRESPONDED

WITH THEM ONLINE.

MEMBERS OF THE COUPLE'S

COMMUNITY ARE SHOCKED.

A NICE KID.

SUPER SMART AND

INTELLIGENT.

IT IS TERRIFYING TO

KNOW IT IS SOMETHING THAT

IS HAPPENING THROUGHOUT

THE UNITED STATES, BUT IT

DOESN'T SEEM LIKE

SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE

GOING ON HERE.

Efrem: THE COUPLE IS

BEHIND BARS WITHOUT BOND.

> ONE OF THE GROUP'S

MOST AFFECTED BY THE ISIS

RAMPAGE ACROSS IRAQ IS THE

COUNTRY'S ANCIENT

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY.

AS TERRORISTS MASSACRE

IRAQI CHRISTIANS, ONE

IRAQI PASTOR STANDS HIS

GROUND AND SPREADS THE

GOSPEL OVER THE AIRWAVES.

ERC STACERICK STAKELBECK THAT IS

THE STORY.

Reporter: SOME

TWO-THIRDS OF IRAQ'S LARGE

CHRISTIAN POPULATION HAVE

FLED THE COUNTRY IN THE

PAST 12 YEARS ALONE.

AND EVEN IN CITIES NOT

CONTROLLED BY ISIS, THEY

HAVE PLACED BULLS' EYES ON

THE BACK OF CHRISTIANS.

ONE IRAQI PASTOR HAS NOT

ONLY STAYED BEHIND, HE IS

LEADING IRAQ'S FIRST

CHRISTIAN RADIO STATION.

WHEN WE STARTED THIS

PROJECT, IT WAS A

PIONEERING PROJECT.

NO ONE EVER APPLIED FOR A

RADIO STATION IN THE

HISTORY OF IRAQ,

ESPECIALLY A CHRISTIAN

RADIO STATION.

Reporter: PASTOR

MAHIR LEADS BAGHDAD'S NEW

TESTAMENT BAPTIST CHURCH.

HE TOLD CBN NEWS HE

FOUNDED 102.9 F.M. IN

BAGHDAD A DECADE AGO TO

REACH IRAQIS WITH THE

GOSPEL.

VIOLENCE WAS A MAJOR

PROBLEM IN BAGHDAD.

AND OUT OF ALL OF THE

RADIO STATIONS THAT

BROADCASTED VIOLENCE AND

NEGATIVE NEWS, OUR RADIO

STATION APPEARED

PROTESTING THE GOSPEL AND

THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS

CHRIST.

Reporter: SINCE THEN,

THE VIOLENCE HAS NOT

STOPPED, AND NEITHER HAS

PASTOR MAHIR.

THE PROGRAM NOW REACHES UP

TO EIGHT MILLION PEOPLE IN

AND AROUND BAGHDAD.

I PRAY PUBLICLY ON OUR

RADIO STATION, SO ALL OF

THE IRAQIS WILL HEAR IT.

NOT ONLY CHRISTIANS, BUT

ALSO MUSLIMS CALL US LIVE

ON THE AIR, REQUESTING

THAT WE PRAY FOR THEM.

Reporter: HIS BOLD

STANCE HAS BROUGHT

COUNTLESS DEATH THREATS,

AND WITH ISIS DECLARING AN

ALL-OUT WAR ON CHRISTIANS,

THINGS HAVE ONLY BECOME

MORE DANGEROUS.

THE SITUATION HERE IN

BAGHDAD IS NOT ONLY BAD,

IT IS VERY BAD.

WHEN ISIS OCCUPIED RAMADI,

WE BECAME ENDANGERED

BECAUSE RAMADI IS NOT FAR

AWAY FROM BAGHDAD.

ON THE ONE SIDE, WE HAVE

ISIS THREATENING US.

AND THE SECOND DANGER WE

FACE IS FROM CAR BOMBS AND

EXPLOSIONS.

Reporter: BUT PASTOR

MAHIR REMAINS ON THE AIR,

AND IN 2010, WITH THE HELP

OF U.S.-BASED HIGH

ADVENTURE MINISTRIES, HE

ESTABLISHED ANOTHER

CHRISTIAN RADIO STATION IN

BOSRA, IN SOUTHERN IRAQ.

THAT STATION CAN BE HEARD

AS FAR AWAY AS NEIGHBORING

KUWAIT AND IRAN.

MANY, MANY PEOPLE ARE

LISTENING AND RECEIVING

THE MESSAGE AND ARE

RESPONDING TO THE MESSAGE

OF THE GOSPEL.

Reporter: IN THE

MEANTIME, HE SAYS HE HAS

NO PLANS TO LEAVE IRAQ.

THE LORD PROTECTED US,

AND I BELIEVE THE LORD

WILL PROTECT US ALSO IN

THE COMING DAYS.

Reporter: HE SAYS

THOUSANDS OF IRAQI

CHRISTIAN REFUGEES NEED

AID, AND HE IS PRAYING THE

U.S. GOVERNMENT AND THE

AMERICAN CHURCH WILL STEP

UP TO HELP AS ISIS

CONTINUES TO WREAK HAVOC.

ERICK STAKELBECK, CBN

NEWS, WASHINGTON.

Efrem: PAT, THAT IS

ONE BRAVE PASTOR.

Pat: WHAT A STORY OF

COURAGE, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

IN THE MIDST OF ALL OF

THAT CHAOS, THIS BRAVE MAN

IS PROCLAIMING THE WORD.

I USED TO READ IN THE BOOK

OF REVELATION, AND I SAW

SOMETHING ABOUT THE SOULS

OF THEM WHO WERE BEHEADED

FOR THEIR WITNESS TO

JESUS.

AND YOU SAID, OH, WELL,

THAT'S SOME TIME IN THE

WAY DISTANT FUTURE, AND

MAYBE IT WILL NEVER

HAPPEN.

AND MAYBE IT IS JUST

SOMETHING IN THE BOOK OF

REVELATION.

WELL, IT ISN'T ANY LONGER

IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION.

IT IS IN THE BOOK OF IRAQ,

IN THE BOOK OF SYRIA, AND

THE BOOK OF ISIS.

THE BEHEADINGS ARE TAKING

PLACE DAILY OF BRAVE

CHRISTIANS WHO ARE BEING

BEHEADED FOR THEIR WITNESS

OF JESUS CHRIST.

THAT'S THE ONLY REASON

THEY'RE BEING KILLED.

ONE PICTURE I SAW

YESTERDAY THAT CHILLED MY

HEART WAS A LITTLE BOY.

HE COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE

THAN NINE OR 10 YEARS OLD,

STANDING BESIDE A KNEELING

CHRISTIAN MAN, AND THIS

YOUNG BOY WAS GETTING

READY TO CUT THE HEAD OFF

OF THIS MAN.

AND YOU THINK, WHAT KIND

OF BARBARITY IS IT THAT

TRAINS THE YOUNG TO MURDER

AND SLAUGHTER SOMEBODY

BECAUSE OF THEIR FAITH.

IF THERE ARE ANY PEOPLE WE

SHOULD HELP -- WE HELPED A

LONG TIME AGO, A DEAR

FRIEND GEORGE WITH HIGH

ADVENTURERS, AND THEY'RE

BACKING THIS GUY IN BASRA

AND BAGHDAD.

EFREM?

Efrem: MARKETS AROUND

THE WORLD FELL AGAIN AFTER

CHINA DEVALUED ITS

CURRENCY FOR THE SECOND

DAY.

AS THE CHINESE CURRENCY

SUFFERED ITS BIGGEST LOSS

IN DECADES.

CHINA'S MOVE IS DESIGNED

TO HELP THE CHINESE

ECONOMY BY MAKING ITS

PRODUCTS CHEAPER IN

INTERNATIONAL MARKETS.

CHINA'S ECONOMY, WHICH HAS

BEEN SLOWING DOWN IN

RECENT MONTHS, BUT THE

CHINESE DEVALUATION HIT

THE STOCK MARKET HARD ON

TUESDAY, WITH THE DOW

JONES DOWN MORE THAN 200

POINTS.

BOB McDONALD WILL

APPEAL HIS CONVICTIONS ON

PUBLIC CORRUPTION TO THE

SUPREME COURT.

NOW THAT A FEDERAL APPEALS

COURT HAS REJECTED HIS BID

FOR A REHEARING.

HIS ATTORNEY WOULD NOT SAY

IF THE FORMER GOVERNOR

WOULD HAVE TO REPORT TO

PRISON TO BEGIN SERVING

HIS TWO-YEAR SENTENCE.

HE HAS BEEN FREE ON BOND

SINCE THE APPEALS COURT

UNANIMOUSLY UPHELD HIS

CONVICTION BACK IN JULY.

HE SAYS HE IS VERY

DISAPPOINTED IN THE LATEST

RULING AGAINST HIM, BUT HE

SAYS HE IS INNOCENT AND HE

IS STILL LOOKING TO BE

VINDICATED.

PAT?

Pat: BOB IS A VERY

DEDICATED CHRISTIAN MAN.

HE HAS BEEN A SUPERB

GOVERNOR.

PEOPLE ARE HEAPING INSULTS

UPON HIM NOW, BUT WHEN HE

WAS SERVING, HE WAS A

SUPERB GOVERNOR, AND HE

BROUGHT JOBS AND

CREATIVITY AND ALL SORTS

OF STUFF, AND BUDGET

DISCIPLINE TO THIS

COMMONWEALTH.

IT IS A TRAGEDY WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

THE FOURTH CIRCUIT WAS

KNOWN AS A VERY

CONSERVATIVE CIRCUIT, AND

NOW OBAMA HAS PUT SOME

PEOPLE ON THAT CIRCUIT

THAT ARE ANYTHING BUT

CONSERVATIVE.

AND THEY RULED -- THE

THREE THAT TOOK THAT

APPEAL WENT AFTER HIM

TOOTH AND TONG.

I MEAN, IT WAS A BITING,

BITING DECISION.

AND, THEREFORE, IT WAS SO

STRONG THAT THE -- ALL OF

THE JUDGES ON THAT CIRCUIT

JUST SAID, HEY, WE CAN'T

TOUCH THIS BECAUSE WE

DON'T WANT TO GO AGAINST

OUR COLLEAGUES.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, THERE

IS CLEAR GROUND FOR APPEAL

TO THE SUPREME COURT, AND

THE COURT REALLY SHOULD

TAKE UP THIS ISSUE AS TO

WHAT IS PROHIBITED AND

WHAT IS PERMITTED UNDER

THE LAW FOR PUBLIC

OFFICIALS.

AND IT WAS SO VAGUE, AND

THIS SO-CALLED HOBBS'

ACT -- THERE IS NO LAW IN

VIRGINIA AGAINST ANYTHING

THAT BOB McDONALD DID.

BUT IT IS THE HOBBS' ACT

THAT TALKS ABOUT THE ROLE

OF PUBLIC OFFICIALS.

AND THAT, AGAIN, IS VERY

HAZY AND VERY FOGGY, AND

BOB McDONALD DIDN'T

THINK HE DID ANYTHING

WRONG, AND I TEND TO AGREE

WITH HIM.

NEVERTHELESS, THEY HAD A

JURY TRIAL AND HE GOT

CONVICTED.

A WONDERFUL MAN, SO PLEASE

PRAY FOR HIM.

Efrem: PAT, A NEW

VERSION OF DIET PEPSI HIT

STORE SHELVES.

IT DOESN'T INCLUDE

ASPERTANE.

THE NEW FORMULA IS

SWEETENED WITH SPLENDA AND

AN ADDITIVE CALLED ACE

"K."

THEY ARE HOPING THIS

VERSION WILL BOOST THE

SALES OF DIET PEPSI.

CONSUMERS HAVE BEEN

CONCERNED ABOUT ASPERTANE.

A SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT OF

PEPSICO SAID IT IS THE

NUMBER ONE THING OUR

COSTUMERS HAVE BEEN

CALLING ABOUT.

IT STARTS APPEARING THIS

WEEK, ALTHOUGH SOME STORE

SHELVES MAY HAVE BOTTLES

AND CANS WITH THE OLD

VERSION ON THE SHELVES.

PAT?

Pat: THE PEPSI PEOPLE

ARE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

I'M SO HAPPY.

Wendy: WHAT IN THE

WORLD IS ACE "K," AND I

READ THAT HAS SOME

ASPERTANE IN IT.

AND SUCRALOSE IS NOT

NATURAL.

Pat: THE THING ABOUT

ASPERTANE AS WE POINTED

OUT ALONG THE WAY, IT IS

THE SAME INGREDIENT HAS

MOON SHINE LIQUOR.

IT CAN CAUSE BLINDNESS AND

MENTAL PROBLEMS AND ALL

KINDS OF LESIONS.

THEY RAMMED IT THROUGH THE

F.D.A. WITHOUT PROPER

REVIEW.

AND THEY PUT IT IN INSTEAD

OF CYCLOMATES.

THEY TAKE SUGAR AND TREAT

IT WITH CHLORINE AND

THAT'S HOW YOU GET

ASPERTANE.

Wendy: IT HURTS MY

STOMACH.

Pat: IT IS A KILLER.

I CONGRATULATE PEPSI.

BUT THIS THING STUFF IS

AWFUL.

WE HAD PILOTS WASHED OUT

OF FLYING BECAUSE THEY

WOULD DRINK SEVEN OR EIGHT

DIET COLAS, AND THESE

THINGS WERE PLAYING WITH

THEIR MINDS.

IT IS REALLY BAD.

AND CONGRATULATIONS TO

PEPSI.

MAYBE YOU'LL LEAD IN THE

COKE WARS.

EFREM?

Efrem: PAT, ONCE

AGAIN SCIENTISTS ARE

DISCOVERING THE HEALTH

BENEFITS OF BIBLE

PRACTICES.

DOCTORS SAY FORGIVENESS,

RESTING, AND LETTING GO OF

WORRY ARE GOOD FOR YOUR

BODY.

NOW YOU CAN ADD FASTING TO

THE LIST.

LORI JOHNSON EXPLAINS.

Lori: IT APPEARS

FASTING DRAMATICALLY

STRENGTHENS OUR IMMUNE

SYSTEM.

RESEARCHERS STUDIED HUMANS

AND-WH MICE WHO WENT WITHOUT

FOOD FOR TWO TO FOUR DAYS

FOR SIX MONTHS.

THE FASTING HELPED THEM

REGENERATE NEW, HEALTHY

CELLS.

THIS MEANS FASTING COULD

BE A KEY TO AGING WELL.

BECAUSE AS WE GET OLDER,

OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM WEAKENS,

MAKING US MORE VULNERABLE

TO DISEASE.

FASTING COULD PROVE

ESPECIALLY BENEFICIAL FOR

PEOPLE GOING THROUGH

CHEMOTHERAPY WHO SUFFER

FROM AUTOIMMUNE DISORDERS.

FASTING REDUCES THE ENZYME

PKA, CLEARING THE WAY FOR

STEM CELLS TO RENEW, AND

LOWERS LEVELS OF THE

I.G.F. GROWTH HORMONE,

WHICH IS LINKED TO CANCER.

RESEARCHERS SAY WHEN YOU

STARVE, THE SYSTEM TRIES

TO SAVE ENERGY.

AND ONE OF THE THINGS IT

CAN DO IS TO RECYCLE A LOT

OF THE IMMUNE CELLS THAT

ARE NOT NEEDED, ESPECIALLY

THOSE WHO MAY BE DAMAGED.

SO WHAT IS GOOD FOR OUR

SPIRITUAL HEALTH ALSO

APPEARS TO BE GOOD FOUR FOR OUR

PHYSICAL HEALTH.

Efrem: PAT, ONCE

AGAIN OUR BIBLE HAS THE

ANSWER.

Pat: OUR GOOD FRIEND,

A NOTED CARDIOLOGIST, HAS

BEEN ADVOCATING FASTING.

AND HE SAYS IT MAKES A

HUGE DIFFERENCE.

Wendy: AMEN.

EASIER SAID THAN DONE.

IT IS WONDERFUL WHEN YOU

CAN ACTUALLY DO IT, YOU

FEEL SO GOOD.

> WITH D.J.s, DANCING,

AND LOUD MUSIC, THIS LOOKS

LIKE ANY MEGA CONCERT YOU

CAN SEE IN THE WORLD.

IN KENYA, IT IS ALSO ONE

IN KENYA, IT IS ALSO ONE

OF THE EFFECTIVE WAYS OF

IN KENYA, IT IS ALSO ONE

IN KENYA, IT IS ALSO ONE

SHARING THE GOSPEL.

IN KENYA, IT IS ALSO ONE

IN KENYA, IT IS ALSO ONE

YOU'LL SEE WHY, NEXT.

IN KENYA, IT IS ALSO ONE

Pat: AFRICA, THE

SO-CALLED DARK CONTINENT,

70% OF THE PEOPLE ARE

UNDER 30, AND THEY REALLY

DIG HIP-HOP.

SO ONE GROUP OF MUSICIANS

IS USING MODERN MUSIC AND

DANCING TO REACH OUT TO

AFRICA CANNS WITH THE GOOD

NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST.

OUR LOVELY REPORTER,

ANGELA ZATOPEK, TRAVELLED

TO KENYA TO BRING US THIS

STORY.

Reporter: THEY MAY

JUST LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF

KIDS DANCING AROUND THE

CITY STREETS OF KENYA, OR

YOU MIGHT EVEN SPOT THEM

THROUGHOUT THE SLUMS OF

AFRICA.

THE KUBAMBA, BETTER KNOWN

AS K-CREW, USES DANCING

FOR MINISTRY.

FANS EXPERIENCE THIS WHEN

THEY SEE K-CREW IN ACTION.

K-CREW IS A YOUTH

MINISTRY, AND THEY USE

URBAN GOSPEL MUSIC AND

BIBLICAL CONVICTION.

Reporter: AND THEY

CAN DONE JUST THAT,

REACHING MORE AND MORE

SINCE COCA-COLA KENYA

BEGAN SPONSORING THEIR

JAM-PACKED PERFORMANCES.

PEOPLE DON'T STAY IN THEIR

SEATS FOR LONG AS THEY

WORSHIP WHY THEI WITH THEIR DANCING

SHOES ON.

I WAS ONE OF THE

PROFESSIONAL DANCERS AND

MOST FAMOUS DANCERS IN

KENYA.

DANCING IS AN EXPRESSION.

IF A PRESIDENT COMES TO

KENYA, WE HAVE TO DANCE

WITH THEM.

Reporter: WITH MEDIA

AND DANCE AS THEIR TOOL OF

INFLUENCE, K-CREW IS

CREATING A NEW FORMULA FOR

OUTREACH.

IT IS A FUSION OF

SOUNDS.

WE'RE FUSING A LOT OF OUR

LOCAL SOUNDS LIKE LENGALA

AND PUDA.

WITH REALIZE WE NEED TO

HIT THIS MASSIVE

POPULATION.

Reporter: PART OF

THROUGH OUTREACH INCLUDES

A WEEKLY TELEVISION

PROGRAM THAT REACHES OVER

SEVEN MILLION VIEWERS.

WITH MANY OF THE D.J.s

RAISED IN AFRICAN SLUMS,

THEY OFTEN RETURN HOME TO

PERFORM.

THE DANDO DANDORA SLUM IS HOME

TO ONE MILLION PEOPLE.

K-CREW USES HIP-HOP AS A

POPULAR COMMUNITY FORCE.

THEY ALSO TAKE THEIR

MINISTRY TO THE SCHOOLS,

BEGINNING WITH DANCE AND

ENDING WITH A WORD OF THE

DAY.

THERE ARE CHALLENGES WE

ARE TRYING TO FIGHT.

THIS CAN CHANGE YOUR

LIFE.

DO NOT DO DRUGS.

THERE HAS BEEN AN

ATTACK IN KENYA, BUT THEY

ARE COURAGEOUSLY MOVING

FORWARD.

Reporter: REFLECTING

ON RECENT ATTACKS BY A

RADICAL ISLAMIC GROUP IN

KENYA, D.J. MICKEY WAS

INSPIRED TO CREATE A SONG

ABOUT THE VICTIMS CALLED

"FALLEN HEROS."

K-CREW IS CURRENTLY

EXPANDING TO ACQUIRE THEIR

OWN RADIO STATION,

SUPPORTED BY THEIR U.S.

PARTNERS, REGENT GLOBAL.

WITH GOSPEL MUSIC

CURRENTLY BEING THE NUMBER

ONE FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT

IN KENYA, K-CREW IS

KEEPING THEIR MESSAGE

TRADITIONAL, BUT

PRESENTING IT IN AN

UNCONVENTIONAL WAY.

I'M ANGELA ZATOPEK, CBN

NEWS, KENYA.

Pat: MAN, WE GO WHERE

NO ONE ELSE HAS GONE

BEFORE.

Wendy: IT'S A GREAT

STORY.

Pat: CONGRATULATIONS.

WHAT IS NEXT?

Wendy: HOW BAD WAS

RYAN'S ACID REFLUX?

IT WAS LITERALLY EATING

AWAY HIS ESOPHAGUS.

I COULDN'T KEEP ANY

FOOD DOWN.

AND THEY SAID YOU'RE GOING

TO NEED A TRACHEOTOMY

WITHIN 16 MONTHS.

Wendy: SO WHAT

REPAIRED THE DAMAGE?

YOU'LL FIND OUT, NEXT.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

I KNOW THIS ISN'T EXACTLY

A MEDICAL SHOW, BUT HAVE

YOU EVER HEARD OF

SOMETHING CALLED ACID

REFLUX?

IT DOESN'T SOUND TOO BAD.

YOU EAT TOO BIG A MEAL, SO

YOU HAVE SOMETHING COMING

UP THE OTHER SIDE.

IF YOU'RE ONE OF THE

MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WHO

SUFFERED WITH THAT

CONDITION, YOU SHOULD

SYMPATHIZE WITH RYAN ECK.

EVERY BITE OF FOOD,

SOMETIMES EVERY BREATH OF

AIR, SENT SEARING PAINS

DOWN HIS THROAT.

THE DOCTOR SAID, LOOK,

YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE

SURGERY.

WE CAN'T HANDLE THIS WITH

JUST DRUGS.

BUT RYAN'S MOTHER

RECOMMENDED PRAYER, AND

HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED.

IT IS A MIRACLE.

Reporter: RYAN ECK

DIDN'T KNOW IT, BUT HE WAS

HAVING CLASSIC SYMPTOMS OF

ACID REFLUX.

WHEN I WOULD EAT

SOMETHING SPICY OR NOT

SPICY, JUST REGULAR FOOD,

IT WOULD HAVE THE EFFECTS.

I COULDN'T KEEP ANY FOOD

DOWN.

IT FELT LIKE FIRE AND

PLASMA BURNING, STRAIGHT

ALL THE WAY TO MY THROAT.

IT KEPT DETERIORATING, TO

WHERE I COULD ONLY EAT

THREE-FOURTHS OF A

SANDWICH IN JUST ONE DAY.

Reporter: AND HE ALSO

HAD TROUBLE BREATHING.

YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR

GASPING FOR AIR, AND

THAT'S JUST TO WALK FROM

HERE TO THE OTHER SIDE OF

THE ROOM.

Reporter: BY THE TIME

HE SAW A DOCTOR, THE

DAMAGE HAD BEEN DONE.

AND THEN THEY SAID, THE

ACID REFLUX HAS JUST

DETERIORATED YOUR

ESOPHAGUS ALMOST

COMPLETELY OFF, AROUND

89%.

YOU WILL NEED A

TRACHEOTOMY WITHIN 14

MONTHS.

THAT'S HOW YOU'LL BE ABLE

TO BREATHE.

Reporter: RYAN CALLED

HIS MOM AND THEY PRAYED

FOR GOD'S HEALING.

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

SAID, I NEED YOU.

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I NEED YOU TO HELP ME.

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

JESUS, I LOVE YOU AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

TRUST YOU, AND I NEED A

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

MIRACLE.

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

Reporter: A FEW DAYS

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

LATER, GOD ANSWERED THEIR

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

PRAYER.

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I WAS WATCHING "THE 700

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

FOR PRAYER.

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

PAT ROBERTSON HAD THIS

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

Pat: YOU BURNED THE

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I POPPED MY HEAD UP,

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

I JUST THANKED GOD AND

AND I SAID, THAT'S FOR

AND I SAID, THAT'S FOR

RYAN.

I PUT MY HAND ON MY THROAT

AND SAID, LORD, IN JESUS'

NAME, YES, WE RECEIVE

THIS.

I'M ON THE PHONE WITH

HER AT WORK, AND I JUST

STARTED CRYING.

I WAS, LIKE, OH, JESUS,

PLEASE LET ME BE THIS

PERSON.

Reporter: WHEN RYAN

WOKE UP THE NEXT MORNING,

HE COULD FEEL TINGLING IN

HIS THROAT.

I KNEW THAT THIS WAS

GOD.

Reporter: FROM THAT

POINT ON, HE COULD EAT

ANYTHING HE WANTED WITH NO

PAIN.

I COULD WALK FROM MY

APARTMENT TO MY CAR, DOWN

THREE FLIGHTS OF STAIRS,

AND I WASN'T OUT OF

BREATH.

Reporter: LATER

RYAN'S DOCTOR EXAMINED HIS

THROAT.

AND HE SAID, YOUR

ESOPHAGUS HAS COMPLETELY

BEEN HEALED.

IT IS A BRAND NEW

ESOPHAGUS.

THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN.

JESUS CAN DO ANYTHING.

HE CREATED THIS WORLD.

HE CREATED YOU.

HE CAN HEAL YOU.

AND IF YOU JUST ASK AND

BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST'S

NAME, IF YOU DO THAT,

YOU'RE GOING TO WIN.

Pat: ISN'T THAT

MARVELOUS.

I HAVE TO SAY, I DIDN'T

KNOW RYAN, NOR DID I KNOW

ANYTHING ABOUT HIS THROAT.

BUT GOD KNEW.

GOD KNOWS YOUR NEEDS.

YOU'VE GOT SOMETHING YOU

WANT TO SHARE.

Wendy: I DO.

SANDY, OF ILLINOIS, SHE

DEALT WITH DIZZINESS FOR

OVER A MONTH.

A FRIEND BROUGHT HER A

CANE BECAUSE SHE WAS SO

WEAK AND COULDN'T WALK.

ONE DAY "THE 700 CLUB" WAS

ON TV IN THE BACKGROUND

WHILE SANDY WAS DOING

CHORES.

AND SHE HEARD YOU SAY,

PAT, SOMEBODY IS HEALED OF

DIZZINESS RIGHT NOW.

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO WALK

WITH STABILITY IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

SANDY'S BODY STARTED TO

FEEL DIFFERENT, AND SHE

BEGAN TO GAIN STRENGTH AND

SHE HAS HAD NO TROUBLE

SINCE HE HEARD THAT

HEALING WORD OF GOD.

Pat: HERE IS A LADY

NAMED DORIS FROM VIRGINIA.

SHE HAD TROUBLE IN HER

RIGHT EYE.

AND SHE HAD INCREASED

PAIN.

IT GOT SO INTENSE, SHE

WENT TO THE EMERGENCY

ROOM.

THEY WEREN'T ABLE TO DO

ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

SHE WENT TO THE

SPECIALIST, AND THE

SPECIALIST SAID, OKAY,

YOUR EYE HURTS, LET'S TAKE

IT OUT.

THAT ISN'T A GOOD

SOLUTION.

DORIS AND HER DAUGHTER

WERE WATCHING, AND THEY

HEARD WENDY SAY THERE IS A

WEAKNESS IN YOUR RIGHT EYE

AND IT IS VERY PAINFUL.

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT.

AND DORIS IS HEALED.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE

SERVE A GREAT GOD.

HE IS THE GOD OF MIRACLES,

AND IN HIM, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER.

AND WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

GOD.

WHERE TWO OF US BELIEVE ON

EARTH, WE'RE GOING TO

BELIEVE FOR YOU.

WHOEVER YOU ARE AND

WHEREVER YOU ARE.

FATHER, I PRAY WITH WENDY

RIGHT NOW IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

LORD, LET THE HEALING

POWER FLOW INTO SOMEBODY'S

LIVES.

TOUCH LIVES, WE PRAY.

SOMEBODY ELSE WITH AN

ESOPHAGEAL PROBLEM IS

BEING HEALED.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR

CHEST IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

TOUCH.

Wendy: SOMEONE WITH A

CHRONIC URINARY TRACT

INFECTION, AND YOU KEEP

GOING BACK TO THE DOCTOR

AND STAYING ON

ANTIBIOTICS, AND THE LORD

IS TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOW.

BE HEALED IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

Pat: THERE IS A WOMAN

WITH MENSTRUAL PROBLEMS,

AND BLOOD IS FLOWING ALL

OF THE TIME.

GOD, RIGHT NOW, HAS JUST

TOUCHED YOU.

THAT BLOOD FLOW WILL STOP.

AND YOUR UTERUS AND THAT

PART OF YOU IN TROUBLE

WILL BE ABSOLUTELY NORMAL

IN JESUS' NAME.

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEBODY WITH AN INNER EAR

INFECTION OR INNER EAR

PROBLEM THAT IS CAUSING

PAIN AND A LITTLE

DIZZINESS AS WELL, AND GOD

IS TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOW.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Pat: A LITTLE CHILD

NAMED MARCY, YOU'RE CRYING

OUT RIGHT NOW.

YOUR FOLKS ARE GOING TO

SPLIT UP, AND YOU'RE ALL

TORN UP ABOUT IT.

AND YOU'RE PRAYING FOR

THEM.

GOD IS GOING TO HEAR YOUR

PRAYERS, MARCY.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

RECEIVE AN ANSWER.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, PLEASE

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE

FURTHER PRAYER, CALL IN.

COUNSELLORS WILL PRAY WITH

ALL MEANS GIVE US A CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

IT'S TOLL-FREE.

WENDY?

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

WHEN PERFECT ISN'T GOOD

ENOUGH.

ONE COVER GIRL EXPLAINS

WHY SHE LEFT THE MODELING

INDUSTRY, WHEN WE RETURN.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

UNITED STATES CONGRESSMAN

VISITING THE TEMPLE MOUNT

IN ISRAEL SAY THEY WERE

HARASSED BY MUSLIM MEN ON

A RECENT VISIT.

THE INCIDENT WAS RECORDED

ON A CELL PHONE CAMERA.

THE VIDEO SHOWS SOMEONE

TELLING THE GUY HE COULD

NOT USE THE TERM "TEMPLE

MOUNT," ONLY THE MUSLIM

REFERENCE TO THE DOME OF

THE ROCK.

> A JUDGE HAS STRUCK

DOWN AN OKLAHOMA LAW THAT

RESTRICTED THE USE OF

DRUGS THAT INDUCE

ABORTIONS.

THE LAW REQUIRED DOCTORS

TO STRICTLY FOLLOW LABEL

INSTRUCTIONS WHEN

PRESCRIBING THE DRUGS.

IT HAD BEEN APPROVED BY

THE REPUBLICAN LEGISLATURE

AND GOVERNOR, BUT THE

CENTER FOR REPRODUCTIVE

RIGHTS FILED A LAWSUIT

AGAINST IT.

IT SAID IT INTERFERED WITH

DOCTORS' DISCRETION.

OKLAHOMA IS ONE OF SIX

STATES THAT HAVE PASSED

LAWS TO RESTRICT MEDICAL

ABORTIONS BY LIMITING OR

BANNING THE UNDERLABEL

USES OF SUCH DRUGS.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN

ALWAYS GET THE LATEST FROM

CBN NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT cbnnews.com.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELL, NICOLE

WEIDER HAD ONE OF TWO

THINGS IN HER LIFE: WHEN

SHE WAS YOUNGER, SHE

WANTED TO MAKE IT INTO

SHOW BUSINESS.

AND, SECOND, AFTER SHE

ATTAINED SUCCESS, SHE

WANTED TO MAKE IT OUT.

NICOLE WEIDER WAS JUST A

YOUNG GIRL WHEN SHE

STARTED FOLLOWING HER

DREAM OF BECOMING A STAR.

AT 16, SHE MOVED TO

HOLLYWOOD AND WAS SOON

APPEARING IN SOME OF

AMERICA'S TOP MAGAZINES.

AFTER EIGHT YEARS OF

MODELING, NICOLE HAD SEEN

TOO MANY LIVES DESTROYED

BY THE CUT-THROAT INDUSTRY

AND THOUGHT HERS COULD BE

NEXT.

NICOLE WEIDER IS HERE WITH

NOW.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

IT IS GOOD TO SEE YOU, MY

FRIEND.

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

Wendy: IN YOUR BOOK,

YOU TALK ABOUT WHEN YOU

WERE A TEENAGER AND YOU

FIRST STARTED GETTING INTO

MODELING, YOU FELT

VULNERABLEMENT ANVULNERABLE.

AND YOU DIDN'T EVEN

REALIZE THEY WERE TURNING

YOU INTO A SEX OBJECT.

AS SOON AS I TURNED 14

AND I GOT MY BRACES OFF,

THEY STARTED MARKETING ME

AS A SEXY WOMAN.

AND GROWING UP, I WAS

ALWAYS -- I FELT AWKWARD

ABOUT MY BODY.

I WAS VERY TALL AND

SKINNY.

BUT AS SOON AS I HIT

MIDDLE SCHOOL, I KIND OF,

I GUESS YOU COULD SAY,

BLOSSOMED.

I WAS 5' 10" IN MIDDLE

SCHOOL, SO MY AGENT WAS

MARKETING ME AS OLDER THAN

I WAS.

I WAS MARKETING FOR Z-100,

AND I WAS ON A BIG

BILLBOARD ON THE FREEWAY.

AND AT FIRST I WAS SO

EXCITED.

BUT THEN I WAS LOOKING AT

IT AND IT SAID, THERE IS

NO BAD DATE A GOOD SONG

CAN'T CURE.

SO IT WAS INSINUATING THAT

I WAS GOING ON A DATE.

I SHOULD HAVE TOOK IT AS A

WARNING SIGN, BUT I

DIDN'T.

I WAS, LIKE, I DID THIS

BIG JOB, AND I WANT TO

MOVE TO L.A. AND SEE IF I

COULD MAKE IT.

AND SO I SIGNED WITH A

MODELING AGENT AND IT ALL

WENT DOWNHILL FROM THERE.

Wendy: YOU WOULD SAY

THAT YOU WOULD OFTEN LEAVE

A PHOTO SHOOT AND FEEL

LIKE YOU WERE STRIPPED OF

YOUR DIGNITY.

YEAH.

Wendy: TELL US ABOUT

THAT.

I WAS ALWAYS KIND OF

CURVY.

I WAS NEVER THIN ENOUGH TO

DO HIGH FASHION.

BUT MY AGENT WAS BOOKING

ME FOR LINGERIE WORK AND

SWIMSUIT CATALOGS.

I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE SOME

GLAMOROUS EXPERIENCE WHERE

I WAS HAVING FUN.

I WAS SO EXCITED TO BOOK

THESE JOBS, BUT WHEN I WAS

ONSET, WEARING JUST A BRA

AND UNDERWEAR, I FELT

COMPLETELY HUMILIATED AND

DEGRADED.

HERE I WAS ONSET WITH ALL

OF THESE GUYS AND PEOPLE

FIXING MY BRA AND MY

UNDERWEAR, AND IT MADE ME

FEEL ASHAMED OF MYSELF.

Wendy: AND THEY WERE

TELLING YOU TO PULL IT

DOWN AND DO OTHER THINGS?

EXACTLY.

WHEN I WAS SHOOTING WITH

SOME PHOTOGRAPHERS, THEY

WERE TELLING ME, WEAR A

SHEAR SHIRT OR COVER UP

YOUR CHEST WITH JUST YOUR

HANDS.

THEY WERE ALWAYS PUSHING

ME TO TAKE MORE AND MORE

OFF.

SO I FELT COMPLETELY

DEGRADED AND HUMILIATED.

Wendy: AND YOU DID

SOME WORK WITH SOME BIG

NAMES.

VICTORIA'S SECRET.

UH-HUH.

Wendy: WHAT WAS THE

TURNING POINT WHEN YOU

SAID, I'VE GOT TO GET OUT?

I WOULD SAY IT WAS

PROBABLY WHEN I POSED FOR

MAXIM MAGAZINE.

IT WAS A CULMINATION OF

JUST A SERIES OF DIFFERENT

JOBS THAT REALLY PUSHED

THE ENVELOPE FOR ME.

AND WHEN I WAS A BODY

DOUBLE FOR VICTORIA'S

SECRET, THOSE WERE MY LAST

JOBS.

I THOUGHT, I DON'T WANT

ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS

MODELING INDUSTRY.

I SAW MY PICTURES ON THE

INTERNET, AND THEY ENDED

UP ON SOME DIFFERENT MEN'S

PORN SITES AND THEY WERE

DISGUSTING.

Wendy: DID YOU DO A

COVER --

I WASN'T ON THE COVER,

BUT I WAS IN THE

EDITORIAL.

AND THE INTERNET HAD ALL

OF MY PICTURES AND I WAS

WEARING A BRA AND

UNDERWEAR.

AND I COULDN'T TAKE THEM

BACK.

I WAS ASHAMED.

Wendy: WERE YOU A

BELIEVER DURING THIS TIME?

NO, NOT AT ALL.

I DIDN'T GROW UP IN A

CHRISTIAN HOME.

I DIDN'T HAVE GOD IN MY

LIFE AT ALL.

SO I WAS MAKING MY CHOICES

BASED ON WHAT I WANTED IN

THE WORLD, AND WHAT I

THOUGHT WAS IMPORTANT FOR

MYSELF.

I PLACED MY IDENTITY IN

BEING A MODEL.

SO WHEN I DECIDED I DIDN'T

WANT THAT ANYMORE, I WAS

KIND OF LEFT THINKING,

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO

NOW.

Wendy: AND YOU

STARTED JOURNALING.

TELL US ABOUT THAT.

WHEN I GAVE MY LIFE TO

CHRIST I WAS 23, AND THAT

WAS IN 2009, AND IT WAS

THE BEST DECISION I EVER

MADE.

AFTER I GAVE MY LIFE TO

GOD, I FELT A RENEWED

SENSE OF HOPE.

I FELT LIKE MY DIGNITY WAS

BACK IN MY HEART.

AND I STARTED JOURNALING

ABOUT MY LOVE FOR GOD AND

MY EXPERIENCES IN THE

MODELING INDUSTRY.

PRETTY SOON AFTER I GAVE

MY LIFE TO GOD, HE PUT IN

MY HEART A DESIRE TO

CREATE A WEBSITE FOR

TEENAGED GIRLS TO SHARE

PIECES OF MY TESTIMONY ON

THERE, AND TO BE A LIGHT

TO GIRLS AND TO WARN THEM

ABOUT THE DANGERS OF THE

HOLLYWOOD INDUSTRY AND THE

MODELING INDUSTRY.

SO I STARTED JOURNALING MY

EXPERIENCES IN HOLLYWOOD.

AND GOD PLACED A DESIRE IN

MY HEART TO SHARE MY

EXPERIENCES.

Eric Wendy: AND THAT WAS

CALLED "PROJECT EXPIRED."

AND TEENAGER GIRLS ARE

IN SUCH A HARD TIME IN

THEIR LIFE, BEING A GIRL

AND TRANSITIONING INTO

ADULTHOOD.

AND THE REASON WHY GOD PUT

IT ON MY HEART TO REACH

OUT TO TEEN GIRLS, BECAUSE

WHEN I WAS A TEENAGER,

THAT'S WHEN I REALLY

STARTED TO GO DOWNHILL.

AND I DIDN'T HAVE A FORCE

OR A POSITIVE ROLE MODEL

IN MY LIFE, SO I DIDN'T

KNOW WHERE TO TURN.

SO I FEEL LIKE TEENAGED

GIRLS ARE IN A REALLY

SUSCEPTIBLE TIME IN THEIR

LIFE.

SO I WANTED TO HELP THE

TEENAGED GIRLS WITH THE

TRANSITION THAT THEY'RE

GOING THROUGH THROUGH HIGH

SCHOOL AND BOYS.

SO MY SITE COVERS

EVERYTHING FROM PURITY AND

WHY IT'S COOL TO BE A

VIRGIN BEFORE YOU GET

MARRIED.

AND I MAKE CHRISTIANITY

SCHOOL.

Wendy: AND WHEN MY

BOOK CAME OUT, YOU HOOKED

ME UP WITH A LIVE SKYPE

WITH YOUR GIRLS AND THEY

ASKED ME QUESTIONS.

YOU'VE GOT THOUSANDS AND

THOUSANDS OF GIRLS THAT

ARE INVOLVED WITH "PROJECT

INSPIRED."

YES, I DO.

IT IS AMAZING BECAUSE THIS

SMALL DREAM IN MY HEART,

WHEN I FIRST STARTED I HAD

NO IDEA IT WOULD BLOSSOM

INTO THE SITE THAT IT IS

TODAY.

NOW WE GET OVER 650,000

VISITORS EVERY MONTH

COMING TO THE SITE.

Wendy: AND, OF

COURSE, I FOLLOW YOU ON

TWITTER.

AND YOU HAVE GREAT TWEETS.

AND ALSO Facebook.

SO THERE ARE A LOT OF WAYS

TO GET INVOLVED WITH

"PROJECT INSPIRED."

YOU TALK ABOUT LIVING A

PROJECT-INSPIRED LIFE.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

I LIKE TO SAY A

PROJECT-INSPIRED LIFE IS A

WOMAN WHO IS CONFIDENT IN

WHO SHE IS, WHO GOD MADE

HER TO BE.

A WOMAN WHO USES HER GIFTS

TO GLORIFY GOD.

IN MY BOOK, I TALK ABOUT

THE DIFFERENT SPIRITUAL

GIFTS.

BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE SOME.

AND I ALSO TALK ABOUT

PRAYING FOR YOUR ENEMIES

INSTEAD OF TRYING TO GET

BACK AT THEM, AND BECOMING

A LIGHT TO NON-BELIEVERS.

SO I BELIEVE BEING A

PROJECT-INSPIRED GIRL

ENCOMPASSES ALL OF THESE

DIFFERENT ASPECTS.

Wendy: AND YOU GOT

MARRIED A FEW YEARS AGO,

AND NOW HAVE A BEAUTIFUL

BABY BOY.

WHAT'S HIS NAME?

HIS NAME IS ALYSIA

BENJAMIN.

Wendy: HE IS SO

ADORABLE.

THERE HE IS.

HE IS ACTUALLY IS LITTLE

OLDER THAN THAT NOW.

NICOLE, IT IS SO GOOD TO

SEE YOU AGAIN.

YOU CAN GET HER BOOK,

CALLED "PROJECT INSPIRED,"

AND IT HAS EVERYTHING FROM

PERSONAL TIPS AND TIPS ON

FINDING THE PERFECT PAIR

OF JEANS.

YOU CAN GET IT WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

NICOLE, GOD BLESS YOU FOR

BEING HERE.

GOD BLESS YOU, TOO.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: COMING UP,

ANOTHER ROUND OF "BRING IT

ON."

HERE IS ONE FROM WENDY,

NOT ME -- "I KNOW A

WIDOWED MOTHER WHO IS

PUTTING UNFAIR DEMANDS ON

ONLY ONE OF HER THREE

ADULT CHILDREN.

HOW SHOULD THIS SITUATION

BE HANDLED?"

WE'VE GOT MORE JUST AROUND

THE CORNER.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

AND WE'RE SO GLAD TO HAVE

YOU WITH US.

HEY, LISTEN, YOU DON'T

HAVE TO BE INDIANA JONES

TO HATE SMAIX.

SNAKES.

THOSE VENOMOUS SERPINES

ARE KNOWN TO BITE.

AND IN NIGERIA, THEY WERE

MAKING IT VERY DIFFICULT

FOR ONE POOR WOMAN TO GO

GET WATER TO DRINK.

Reporter: EVERY DAY

GLORIA WALKS TO A DIRTY

POND TO GET WATER FOR HER

FAMILY.

WE HAVE TO WALK SEVERAL

MILES AND CLIMB THE ROCKS

TO GET WATER.

IF YOU AREN'T FAST ENOUGH,

YOU MAY END UP GOING HOME

WITH AN EMPTY CONTAINER.

SOMETIMES WE WOULD SPEND

THE WHOLE DAY LOOKING FOR

WATER.

Reporter: ONCE WHEN

SHE WENT TO FETCH WATER,

GLORIA STARTLED A SNAKE

THAT SPIT VENOM IN HER

EYES.

I WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN.

IT BURNED SO BADLY, I

COULD HARDLY FEEL ANYTHING

ELSE.

Reporter: AFTER

GLORIA FELT HER WAY BACK

HOPE, HER HUSBAND RUSHED

HER TO A NEARBY CLINIC.

I COULD NOT LEAVE MY

WIFE IN PAIN.

I TOOK ALL OF THE MONEY WE

HAD SAVED AND PAID THE

MEDICAL BILLS.

Reporter: SHE

RECOVERED, BUT THE WHOLE

FAMILY LIVED IN FEAR.

I WAS SCARED TO GO

LOOKING FOR WATER, BUT I

HAD NO CHOICE.

I NEEDED WATER FOR MY

FAMILY.

I DIDN'T WANT MY MOTHER

TO GET WATER ALONE, SO I

WENT WITH HER.

I HELPED HER WATCH OUT FOR

SNAKES.

Reporter: WHEN CBN

HEARD ABOUT GLORIA'S

VILLAGE AND THEIR SNAKE

PROBLEM, WE DRILLED A WELL

THERE.

AND NOW EVERYONE CAN HAVE

FRESH WATER CLOSE BY THEIR

HOMES AND AWAY FROM

DANGER.

NOW MOM WON'T BE AFRAID

OF SNAKES ANYMORE.

Reporter: WHILE WE

WERE IN THE VILLAGE, WE

FOUND OUT GLORIA AND THE

OTHER WOMEN ALSO HAD TO

WALK MILES TO GRIND THEIR

GRAIN.

SO WE GAVE GLORIA A

GRINDER, AND NOW THE OTHER

WOMEN DON'T HAVE TO WALK

SO FAR, AND GLORIA IS

MAKING A LITTLE EXTRA

MONEY FOR HER FAMILY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

THE WELL AND FOR THE

GRINDING MACHINE.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

HALLELUJAH.

Pat: YOU CAN BRING

HAPPINESS TO SO MANY

PEOPLE.

IT IS SO EASY TO DO IT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO

KENYA.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO

NIGERIA.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO

INDIA.

WE CAN DO IT FOR YOU, BUT

WE JUST NEED SOME HELP.

IF WE CAN WORK TOGETHER,

MARVELOUS THINGS HAPPEN.

SO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, $20

A MONTH.

THAT ISN'T A WHOLE LOT,

BUT IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

WAS ALL OF US WORKING

TOGETHER.

WE HAVE THIS, A D.V.D. AND

A C.D., AND ITS CALLED

"THE TRANSFORMING WORD."

AND IT'S GOT SOME READING

FROM THE HEALING PSALMS, A

TEACHING ON HEALING AND

SOME OTHER THINGS.

WE'LL GIVE THAT TO YOU AS

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

SO PLEASE CALL IN.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

Wendy: GUESS WHAT?

THEY LIKE IT IN WEST

VIRGINIA.

Pat: THEL ME ABOUT

IT.

Wendy: TOM AND

LINDA -- THEY SAID THANK

YOU SO MUCH FOR "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD."

WE ARE LEAVING FOR

VACATION AND ARE TAKING IT

ALONG TO LISTEN TO IT IN

THE CAR AND WATCH IT AT

OUR DESTINATION.

THANK YOU FOR SHARING

GOD'S WORD WITH US IN SO

MANY WAYS.

TOM AND LINDA, WE

APPRECIATE YOU WRITING IN

TO LET US KNOW YOU'RE

BEING BLESSED.

AND WE'VE GOT

QUESTIONS.

WENDY WRITES, "A WIDOWED

MOTHER HAS THREE GROWN

CHILDREN, BUT INSISTS ALL

HER NEEDS BE MET BY ONLY

THE YOUNGEST CHILD.

SHE HAS MANIPULATED THE

YOUNGER CHILD INTO

FINANCIAL HARDSHIP AND

EMOTIONAL EXHAUTION IN

WHAT SEEMS TO BE A COLD,

CALCULATED, DELIBERATE

WAY.

WHEN THE YOUNGER CHILD

TALKED TO THE MOTHER AND

THE TWO OLDER SIBLINGS

ABOUT IT, THEY ALL

RESPONDED WITH A SIMPLE

SMILE, SAYING, SORRY ABOUT

YOUR BAD LUCK.

HOW DOES THIS YOUNGEST

CHILD BE OBEDIENT TO GOD?"

Pat: THAT IS A

LENGTHY QUESTION.

Wendy: I KNOW, AND I

SHORTENED IT.

Pat: IT IS LIKE THE

STORY OF CINDERELLA.

YOU FIND IT HARD TO

BELIEVE THAT ONE MOTHER

WOULD MANIPULATE HER

YOUNGEST CHILD AND DRIVE

HER INTO BANKRUPTCY.

THIS WHOLE THING IS

TERRIBLE.

YOU'VE GOT TO STAND UP.

THE BIBLE SAYS HONOR YOUR

MOTHER AND FATHER, BUT IT

DOESN'T SAY BANKRUPT

YOURSELF FOR YOUR MOTHER

AND FATHER.

IT DOESN'T SAY LET YOUR

MOTHER AND TWO SIBLINGS GO

SCOT-FREE WHILE YOU CARRY

THE WHOLE LOAD.

ALL OF THE CHILDREN SHOULD

CHIP IN.

FOR ONE PERSON IT IS

OUTRAGEOUS.

YOU'VE JUST GOT TO SAY NO.

THERE COMES A TIME IN LIFE

WHEN YOU'VE GOT TO SAY NO.

Wendy: CHARLES

WRITES, "I CANNOT IMAGINE

LIVING WITHOUT THE SPIRIT.

WHEN THE SPIRIT IS

REMOVED, DO YOU THINK THAT

THAT IS WHEN WE WILL BE

RAPTURED?"

Pat: WE DON'T KNOW

WHETHER THE SPIRIT -- THE

BIBLE SAYS WHEN HE THAT IS

TAKEN OUT OF THE WAY -- HE

THAT RESTRAINS IS TAKEN

OUT OF THE WAY -- I MEAN,

IS THAT THE RESTRAINING

FORCE OF GOVERNMENT?

THE RESTRAINING FORCE OF

LAW?

THE RESTRAINING FORCE OF

DECENCY?

OR IS IT THE HOLY SPIRIT?

WE DON'T KNOW.

IT SAYS WHEN HE THAT

RESTRAINS IS TAKEN OUT OF

THE WAY, SO I DON'T KNOW.

I HAVEN'T RUN INTO ANYBODY

WHO KNOWS FOR SURE.

A LOT OF PEOPLE WILL TELL

YOU WHAT THEY THINK, BUT

THEY AREN'T TELLING YOU

FROM SOLID SCRIPTURE.

OKAY.

Wendy: THIS VIEWER

WRITES IN, "DEAR PAT, I

SUFFER FROM SCRIT SCRIT.

SCHIZOPHRENIA.

IS THIS A SEEN OF AN EVIL

SPIRIT.

I ACCEPTED JESUS AS SAVIOR

YOUR.

WILL GOD HEAL ME?

I KNOW GOD IS WORKING ON

ME, BUT I WANT TO BE MADE

WHOLE.

PLEASE HELP."

Pat: I'M NOT A

PRACTICING PSYCHIATRIST

FOR STARTERS.

BUT NEW NEED BLOOD GLUCO

TESTS TO SEE IF THERE AN

IMBALANCE.

MUCH OF SCHIZOPHRENIA AND

SO-CALLED PSYCHOLOGICAL

DISORDERS ARE CALLED BY

CHEMICAL IMBALANCES IN THE

BODY.

THEY ALSO UNDERSTAND YOU

HAVE EMOTIONAL ISSUES YOU

HAVE TO DEAL WITH, BUT AT

THE SAME TIME, THEY DEAL

WITH THESE CHEMICAL

THINGS.

I RECOMMEND YOU FIND A

CHRISTIAN PSYCHIATRIST WHO

IS SKILLED IN THESE

TECHNIQUES, AND DO THE

NECESSARY BLOOD GLUCO

TESTS AND TESTS OF

CHEMICALS IN YOUR BODY, TO

SEE WHAT IT IS THAT IS

CAUSING YOUR PROBLEM.

I DON'T KNOW.

IT COULD BE DEMONS, BUT

THERE ARE VERY FEW

PSYCHIATRISTS THAT ARE

CAPABLE OF DOING DEMONS.

AND I DON'T WANT SOMEBODY

TO THINK I'VE GOT A DEMON

WHEN IT IS NOT A DEMON.

IT STAKES SPIRITUAL

DISCERNMENT.

Wendy: A VIEWER SAYS,

"I WAS WONDERING IF YOU

COULD EXPLAIN TO ME THE

DIFFERENCE IN THE 10

COMMANDMENTS GIVEN BY GOD

VERSES THE LAWS GIVEN IN

LEVITICUS.

A CO-WORKER TOLD ME A

PERSON CANNOT BE CHRISTIAN

IF HE DOES NOT APPLY ALL

FOR INSTANCE, IT SAYS A

HUSBAND SHOULDN'T BE IN

THE ROOM WHEN SHE HAS HER

PERIOD.

AS CHRISTIANS, IS IT IS

OKAY TO FOLLOW THE

COMMANDMENTS AND NOT THE

LEVITICUSAL LAW."

Pat: WHEN JESUS DIED,

HE PAID THE PENALTY FOR

THE LAW.

THERE IS, THEREFORE, NOW

NO LAW AGAINST THE PEOPLE

OF GOD.

THERE IS ONLY ONE LAW, AND

THAT'S THE LAW OF LOVE,

THAT YOU LOVE EACH OTHER.

THE IDEA THAT YOU'VE GOT

TO STAY OUT OF A ROOM WITH

A MENUSTRATING WOMAN OR

A MENUSTRATING WOMAN OR

SOMETHING -- I'M NOT SURE

WHERE YOU FOUND THAT.

NEVERTHELESS, WHEREVER YOU

FOUND IT, YOU DON'T HAVE

TO WORRY ABOUT IT BECAUSE

WHAT YOU DO IS LOVE EACH

OTHER.

THAT YOU HAVE LOVE FOR ONE

ANOTHER, THIS IS THE

COMMANDMENT I GIVE YOU.

ALL OF THE REST OF IT --

LOVE GOD AND LOVE YOUR

NEIGHBORS AS YOURSELF.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM LUKE 10:

"I HAVE GIVEN YOU

AUTHORITY TO TRAMPLE ON

SNAKES AND SCORPIONS TO

OVERCOME ALL OF THE POWER

OF THE ENEMY.

NOTHING WILL HARM YOU."

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
