Bishop Dale C. Bronner shares how to maintain a consistent vision during times of transition. Plus, brothers Jim and Sam Evans both served in World War II and recently had a chance to be honored in Washington. Read Transcript


Wendy: COMING

UP...BROTHERS FROM

AMERICA'S GREATEST

GENERATION.

IT WAS A VERY UNEASY

PERIOD FOR EVERYBODY.

Wendy: WITH AMERICA

UNDER ATTACK.

IT WILL BE OVER BY

SPRING.

AND THEN WE FOUND OUT WE

WERE WRONG.

Wendy: THEY ANSWERED

THE CALL TO SERVE.

EVERYBODY DID WHAT THEY

COULD FOR THE WAR EFFORT.

Wendy: WE SALUTE OUR

VETERANS.

WE WERE TREATED FIRST

CLASS EVERYWHERE WE WENT.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT'S VETERANS' DAY, OF

WHICH I AM ONE, AND WE'RE

JUST GLAD TO SALUTE THE

VETERANS WHO HAVE SERVED

OUR COUNTRY IN VARIOUS

ARDUOUS POSITIONS, IN WAR

AND PEACE, ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

WE HAVE TWO SPECIAL GUESTS

IN OUR AUDIENCE.

THEY'RE BROTHERS WHO ARE

BOTH VETERANS OF WORLD WAR

II.

AND, GENTLEMEN, WE'RE GLAD

TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

AND ONE, JIM EVANS, IS 96

YEARS OLD, AND HIS

BROTHER, SAM, IS 93.

AND WE'LL BE TELLING YOU

THEIR COMPELLING STORY OF

SACRIFICE AND SERVICE TO

OUR COUNTRY.

Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT,

BUT FIRST IN THE NEWS, THE

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATES TOOK ON THE

FOREIGN POLICY AND THE

ECONOMY AND MORE.

DAVID BRODY BRINGS US THE

STORY FROM MILWAUKEE,

WISCONSIN.

David: THE G.O.P.

CANDIDATES SPARRED IN

THEIR MOST SUBSTANTIVE

DEBATE SO FAR, WITH THE

ECONOMY TAKING CENTER

STAGE, FROM DISCUSSING THE

TAX CODE...

THE CURRENT SYSTEM

ISN'T FAIR.

THERE ARE MORE WORDS IN

THE I.R.S. CODE THAN THERE

ARE IN THE BIBLE, AND NOT

A ONE OF THEM IS AS GOOD.

David: TO BUILDING A

STRONGER MIDDLE CLASS...

FOR THE LIFE OF ME, I

DON'T KNOW WHY WE HAVE

STIGMATIZED EDUCATIONAL

PROGRAMS.

WE NEED MORE WELDERS AND

LESS PHILOSOPHERS.

David: THE BIGGEST

CLASH WHEN RAND PAUL

QUESTIONED MARCO RUBIO

DESIRE FOR A LARGER CHILD

TAX CREDIT, IN ADDITION TO

MORE DEFENSE SPENDING.

THE POINT I WOULD LIKE

TO MAKE ABOUT THE TAX

CREDITS, WE HAVE TO DECIDE

WHAT IS CONSERVATIVE AND

WHAT ISN'T CONSERVATIVE.

IS IT FISCALLY

CONSERVATIVE TO HAVE A

TRILLION DOLLAR

EXPENDITURE?

I DO WANT TO REBUILD

THE AMERICAN MILITARY.

I KNOW RAND IS A

COMMITTED ISOLATIONIST.

I'M NOT.

I BELIEVE THE WORLD IS A

STRONGER AND BETTER PLACE

WHEN THE UNITED STATES IS

THE STRONGEST MILITARY

POWER IN THE WORLD.

MARCO, HOW IS IT

CONSERVATIVE TO ADD A

TRILLION DOLLAR

EXPENDITURE FOR THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT?

David: AND THERE

WERE ALSO DISAGREEMENTS ON

TOPICS LIKE IMMIGRATION.

TRUMP WANTS TO DEPORT ALL

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

WE EITHER HAVE A

COUNTRY OR WE DON'T HAVE A

COUNTRY.

WE ARE A COUNTRY OF LAWS.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO GO

OUT, AND THEY'LL COME

BACK.

BUT THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE

TO GO OUT AND HOPEFULLY

THEY'LL GET BACK.

THE PEOPLE THINK WE'RE

GOING TO SHIFT 11 MILLION

PEOPLE, WHO ARE

LAW-ABIDING, WHO ARE IN

THIS COUNTRY, AND SOMEHOW

PICK THEM UP AT THEIR

HOUSE AND SHIP THEM OUT TO

MEXICO?

THINK ABOUT THE FAMILIES

AND THE CHILDREN.

IT IS A SILLY ARGUMENT.

IT MAKES NO SENSE.

David: ON FOREIGN

POLICY, TRUMP BELIEVES WE

SHOULD STAY OUT OF SYRIA

AND LET VLADIMIR PUTIN AND

RUSSIAN FORCES FIGHT OVER

THERE.

WE CAN'T CONTINUE TO BE

THE POLICEMEN OF THE

WORLD.

DONALD IS WRONG ON

THIS.

HE IS ABSOLUTELY WRONG ON

THIS.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE THE

WORLD'S POLICEMEN, BUT WE

BETTER BE THE WORLD'S

LEADER.

WITHOUT US LEADING, VOIDS

ARE FILLED.

David: CARLY FIORINA

TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO

SHOW HOW SHE WOULD SHOW

PUTIN AMERICA'S MUSCLE.

I WOULD START

REBUILDING THE MISSILE

DEFENSE PROGRAM IN POLAND

RIGHT UNDER HIS NOSE, AND

I WOULD CONDUCT MILITARY

EXERCISES IN THE BALTIC

STATE SO HE WOULD KNOW WE

WILL PROTECT OUR ALIAS.

David: AS FOR BEN

CARSON, HE ADDRESSED THE

CONTROVERSY OVER THE MEDIA

VETTING PROCESS, AND HOW

THEY'RE TRYING TO FIND ANY

LITTLE THING TO TAKE HIM

DOWN.

I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH

BEING VETTED.

WHAT I DO HAVE A PROBLEM

WITH IS BEING LIED ABOUT.

BUT, YOU KNOW, WHEN I LOOK

AT SOMEBODY LIKE HILLARY

CLINTON, WHO SITS THERE

AND TELLS HER DAUGHTER AND

A GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL

THAT, NO, THIS WAS A

TERRORIST ATTACK, AND THEN

TELLS EVERYBODY ELSE THAT

IT WAS A VIDEO, WHERE I

COME FROM, THEY CALL THAT

A LIE.

David: NOW THAT THIS

DEBATE IN MILWAUKEE IS

COMPLETE, THE NEXT ONE

COMES MORE THAN A MONTH

FROM NOW IN LAS VEGAS IN

MID-DECEMBER.

AND IN THIS PRESIDENTIAL

RACE THAT HAS TURNED INTO

A SOAP OPERA, THAT GIVES

PLENTY OF TIME FOR A LOT

OF TWISTS AND TURNS.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, IN

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN.

Pat: THANKS, DAVID.

I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY OF

YOU WATCHED THAT DEBATE,

BUT I THINK THE GUYS FROM

FOX AND THE EDITOR OF THE

"WALL STREET JOURNAL" WERE

SUBURB MODERATERS.

THEY BROUGHT OUT A LOT OF

SUBSTANCE.

THEY GAVE THE GUYS A

CHANCE TO DISCUSS THESE

ISSUES THAT ARE VERY

IMPORTANT TO THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE.

I, FREEZIN FRANKLY, THINK ALL OF

THE REPUBLICANS DID WELL.

AS A GROUP, THEY DID IT

VERY ADMIRABLY.

WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

ARE SAYING, HERE IS A TEAM

OF MEN AND ONE WOMAN WHO

ARE CAPABLE OF BEING THE

NEXT PRESIDENT OR VICE

PRESIDENT OR SUCCESS OF

STATSECRETARY OFSTATE OR WHATEVER.

I THINK THE BRAND OF

REPUBLICANISM IS GOING UP

BECAUSE OF DEBATES LIKE

THIS.

THE ONE WITH CNBC WAS A

DISASTER, BUT THIS ONE WAS

VERY WELL-DONE, AND I

COMMEND THEM.

SO ON NEXT WEDNESDAY, BY

THE WAY, WE'LL HAVE OUR

SECOND INTERVIEW IN OUR

SERIES OF DISCUSSIONS WITH

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES.

IT WILL BE MY PLEASURE TO

TALK TO MY GOOD FRIEND OF

MANY YEARS, JOHN KASICH.

AND HE WILL SIT DOWN WITH

ME AT REGENT UNIVERSITY IN

FRONT OF A LARGE AUDIENCE,

AND WE'LL BRING YOU

HIGHLIGHTS.

AND WE'VE INVITED OTHER

CANDIDATES AS WELL.

ALONG THE WAY, I KNOW CRUZ

AND RUBIO WILL BE WITH US,

AND OTHERS AS WELL.

> WELL, IN OTHER NEWS,

IF A REPUBLICAN WINS THE

WHITE HOUSE, HE OR SHE

WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S ACTIONS

ON CLIMATE CHANGE.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY.

Efrem: PAT, PRESIDENT

OBAMA APPEARS TO BE

LOOKING TO SECURE HIS

LEGACY ON CLIMATE CHANGE

AND REJECTING THE KEYSTONE

X.L. PIPELINE.

FROM CANADA

TO THE U.S. IS HIS MOST

RECENT STEP TO LEAD THAT

EFFORT AGAINST GLOBAL

WARMING.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: IT IS A

DECISION SEVEN YEARS IN

THE MAKING.

President Obama: THE

STATE DEPARTMENT HAS

DECIDED THAT THE KEYSTONE

X.L. PIPELINE WOULD NOT

SERVE THE NATIONAL

INTERESTS OF THE UNITED

STATES.

I AGREE WITH THAT

DECISION.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA SAID HE WOULD BLOCK

THE PIPELINE IF IT WOULD

MAKE CLIMATE CHANGE WORSE.

HIS ADMINISTRATION

DETERMINED THAT IT

WOULDN'T.

HE BLOCKED IT ANYWAY

BECAUSE OF THE PERCEPTION

THAT IT WOULD CARRY DIRTY

OIL.

President Obama:

SHIPPING DIRTIER CRUDE OIL

INTO OUR COUNTRY WOULD NOT

INCREASE AMERICA'S ENERGY

SECURITY.

WHAT HAS INCREASED

AMERICA'S ENERGY SECURITY

IS OUR STRATEGY OVER THE

PAST SEVERAL YEARS TO

REDUCE OUR RELIANCE ON

DIRTY FOSSEL FUELS FROM

UNSTABLE PARTS OF THE

WORLD.

Reporter: WITH THE

TREATY SET TO BE FINALIZED

NEXT MONTH, THE PRESIDENT

SEEMS TO BE APPEARING TO

LOCK IN HIS ENVIRONMENTAL

LEGACY.

SOME OF OBAMA'S OTHER

STEPS TO REDUCE GREENHOUSE

GASSES INCLUDE HIS

REDUCING EMISSIONS FROM

U.S. POWER PLANTS AND

RAMPING UP EFFICIENCIES

FOR CARS AND TRUCKS.

BUT THOSE REGULATIONS, AND

THE TREATY ITSELF, COULD

FACE A DIFFICULT FUTURE IN

A REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED

CONGRESS, WHICH IS

CONCERNED ABOUT HOW THEY

HURT THE ECONOMY.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: SO, PAT, WAS

THIS GOOD NEWS FOR THE

ENVIRONMENT?

Pat: IT IS TERRIBLE

NEWS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.

IF YOU REALLY CARE ABOUT

THE ENVIRONMENT AND NOT

SOME PHOTO OP, THE

CANADIANS ARE GOING TO

PRODUCE THOSE OILSANDS,

THOSE TARSANDS OIL.

AND WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO

DO WITH THEM?

THEY WERE GOING TO SHIP

THEM ON A SECURE PIPE,

DOWN TO THE GULF OF

MEXICO, WHERE UNITED

STATES REFINERIES, USING

THE MOST UP-TO-DATE

TECHNOLOGY, WOULD THEN

REFINE THEM INTO GASOLINE

AND OTHER PRODUCTS.

BUT THAT'S NOT GOING TO

HAPPEN BECAUSE THE

PRESIDENT WANTS TO BE

LOOKED AT AS A CLIMATE

WARRIOR.

SO THE CANADIANS ARE GOING

TO SAY, OKAY, WE'RE GOING

TO PUT THIS CRUDE NOT IN A

PIPELINE, BUT IN RAIL

CARS, AND WE'RE GOING TO

SHIP THOSE RAIL CARS

HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF

MILES, THROUGH CITIES AND

THROUGH TOWNS.

AND THE POSSIBILITY IS

THEY'LL HAVE A WRECK OR

BLOW UP, AND WE'LL PUT

THEM THROUGH THERE, AND

WE'LL PUT THEM ON TO

FREIGHTERS, TANKERS, OUT

IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN, AND

THEY WILL BE SHIPPED

ACROSS THE WATER TO CHINA,

WHERE THE CRUDE WILL BE

PROCESSED IN VERY DIRTY

CHINESE PLANTS.

WHICH WILL BE SPEWING OUT

NOXIOUS GASSES TO THE AIR

WHICH WE WILL ONE DAY

BREATHE.

THIS BUSINESS ABOUT HIM

BUYING A CLIMATE WARRIOR

IS UTTER NONSENSE.

THIS IS STRICTLY FOR THE

MEDIA.

IT IS A HYPE, JUST LIKE

THE STUFF THAT IS GOING ON

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

IT IS NOT FOR REALITY.

IT IS FOR PRESS RELEASE.

AND MAYBE THAT GUY THAT

STANDS AT THE PODIUM AND

GIVES THOSE CRAZY

JUSTIFICATIONS FOR THE

ADMINISTRATION'S

ACTIONS -- MAYBE HE'LL

HAVE SOMETHING TO TALK

ABOUT.

BUT I THINK HE WILL BE

HOLDING HIS BREATH AND

THINKING, THEY'RE MAKING

ME LIE, BUT I'VE GOT TO DO

IT BECAUSE I'M GETTING A

PAYCHECK.

EFREM?

Efrem: SOME

LONG-AWAITED GOOD NEWS IN

THE FIGHT AGAINST

TRAFFICKING.

A NATIONAL REPORT CARD

SHOWS MORE STATES ARE

GETTING "A"s AND "B"s

IN RECOGNITION OF NEW

ANTITRAFFICKING LAWS.

AS HEATHER SELLS SHOWS US,

THOSE LAWS HAVE IMPROVED

DRAMATICLY IN JUST THE

LAST FOUR YEARS.

Reporter: SHARED HOPE

INFORMATION BEGAN GRADING

STATES ON THEIR

ANTITRAFFICKING LAWS IN

2011.

SISIMPLY PUT, THE STATES

BOMBED.

IN JUST FOUR YEARS, STATE

LAWMAKERS HAVE RESPONDED,

PASSING LAWS THAT IMPOSE

HEAVY PENALTIES ON BOTH

TRAFFICKERS AND BUYERS.

THIS YEAR "SHARED HOPE"

GAVE HALF THE STATES

"A"s AND "B"s, AND NOT

ONE STATE FAILED.

A LOT OF THAT IS DUE TO

GRASSROOTS ACTIVITIES.

PUBLIC AWARENESS HAS

INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY

OVER THE YEARS.

Heather: TWO BRIGHT

SPOTS INCLUDE NORTH DAKOTA

AND MONTANA.

THE BOOMING OIL INDUSTRY

BROUGHT IN 100,000 WORKERS

TO THE BALKAN REGION, AND

CRIME SPIKED IN BOTH

STATES.

THAT LED "SHARED HOPE" TO

FAIL NORTH DAKOTA AND

MONTANA BACK IN 2011.

TODAY THEIR GRADES HAVE

IMPROVED TO A "B" AND AN

"A."

WITH IMPROVED LAWS AND

GREATER ENFORCEMENT,

BUYERS AND TRAFFICKERS

BECOME AWARE THAT THIS IS

A MUCH RISKIER ENDEAVOR TO

ENGAGE IN AND IT WILL

DETER DEMAND AND

TRAFFICKING.

Heather: WHAT IS

STILL NEEDED ACROSS THE

BOARD, HELP FOR VICTIMS,

ESPECIALLY IN THE AREAS OF

PROTECTION AND SERVICES.

"SHARED HOPE" WANTS ALL

STATES TO STRIVE FOR

"A"s AND "B"s SO THE

TRAFFICKERS WILL NOT

SIMPLY BE ABLE TO MOVE

THEIR OPERATIONS.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: AND HERE

TOMORROW ON "THE 700

CLUB," HEATHER WILL HAVE A

REPORT ON THE SHELTERS

HERE IN AMERICA THAT ARE

HELPING VICTIMS OF

TRAFFICKING.

PAT?

Pam Pat: WELL, IERNT I

APPRECIATE THAT VERY MUCH.

AND, LISTEN, REGENT

UNIVERSITY HAS THE CENTER

FOR GLOBAL JUSTICE

TRAINING LAWYERS HOW TO

DEAL WITH THESE THINGS IN

THE COURTS, NOT ONLY IN

AMERICA, BUT OVERSEAS.

YOU SEE, THE THING THAT WE

HAVE DONE, THE TRAFFICKER

TAKES THESE POOR GIRLS AND

PUTS THEM INTO THESE

SITUATIONS, FORCES THEM,

STARVES THEM, ABUSES THEM,

AND THEN PUTS THEM OUT ON

THE STREET TO SELL

THEMSELVES.

AND THE POLICE PICK UP THE

GIRLS AND PUT THEM IN

PRISON.

THEY'VE ALREADY BEEN IN

PRISON.

AND THE THING THAT IS

NEEDED, AND THAT'S WHAT

THIS REPORT SHOWS, IS THE

PEOPLE WHO NEED TO GET

SERIOUS PENALTIES ARE THE

TRAFFICKERS.

I HAVE NO PATIENCE

WHATSOEVER FOR THESE

GLOBAL TRAFFICKERS.

THEY'RE OBSCENE.

THEY'RE VICIOUS.

THEY'RE EVIL.

AND IF WE COULD DO SO

LEGALLY, I I THINK THERE

WOULD BE NO COMPUNCTION IN

MY PART IN GUNNING THEM

DOWN.

WHAT THEY DO TO THESE

WOMEN IS BEYOND BELIEF.

IT IS STRICTLY FOR MONEY,

AND IT TURNS OUT THAT

SELLING A GIRL OVER AND

OVER AGAIN IS A WHOLE LOT

MORE PROFITABLE THAN

SELLING HEROIN OR COCAINE.

SO THEY GO TO PROSTITUTION

AND THEY IMPORT THESE

GIRLS.

I REMEMBER I WAS OVER IN

THAILAND AND WENT TO AN

ORPHANAGE THAT WE'RE

HELPING AND MET A YOUNG

GIRL, SHE'S ABOUT 17, AND

SHE WAS THERE.

AND I SAID, WHAT'S THE

DEAL?

WELL, THE TRAFFICKERS

WOULD COME UP FROM

BANGKOK, AND THEY WOULD

OFFER THE PARENTS A COLOR

TV SET OR A REFRIGERATOR

IN EXCHANGE FOR THEIR

DAUGHTER.

AND SHE KNEW THAT THEY

WERE GOING TO SELL HER.

SO SHE RAN AWAY AND WENT

TO THIS PLACE WHERE SHE

COULD BE CARED FOR.

BUT THAT'S THE KIND OF

THING WE'RE DEALING WITH,

A REFRIGERATOR OR A COLOR

TV IN EXCHANGE FOR A HUMAN

BEING.

EFREM?

Efrem: HEARTBREAKING.

> IN HEALTH NEWS,

ANOTHER WARNING ABOUT HOW

DEADLY OBESITY CAN BE.

OBESE CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS

AGE 8 CAN DEVELOP SIGNS OF

HEART ABNORMALITIES.

THAT COULD INCREASE THEIR

CHANCES FOR AN EARLY DEATH

WHEN THEY BECOME ADULTS.

ALTHOUGH IT IS POSSIBLE

THOSE PROBLEMS MIGHT BE

REVERSIBLE AS THE KIDS

GROW UP.

IT IS POSSIBLE THERE COULD

BE DAMAGE AS WELL.

HEALTH DAY REPORTS THE

STUDY ALSO SUGGESTED OBESE

CHILDREN EVEN YOUNGER THAN

8 COULD HAVE SIGNS OF

HEART DISEASE, TOO.

PAT, THIS IS STILL ANOTHER

STORY THAT SHOWS JUST HOW

IMPORTANT IT IS THAT WE,

AS PARENTS, WATCH WHAT OUR

CHILDREN EAT.

Pat: THE THING OF IT

IS THEY DON'T WATCH.

THEY STUFF THE FRUITLOOPS

DOWN MY SON'S THROAT, AND

THEREFORE HE IS GOING TO

BE HEALTHY.

DON'T BELIEVE IT.

LISTEN, PARENTS, THAT KID

CAN'T EAT ANYTHING THAT

YOU DON'T GIVE HIM.

HE CAN'T GET IN THE CAR

AND DRIVE TO THE STORE.

HE'S SIX YEARS OLD.

HE'S YOURS, AND YOU CAN

DECIDE WHAT HE EATS.

I KNOW MY SON, GORDON'S

CHILDREN, THEY LOVE FRUIT.

AND IT'S SO HEALTHY.

KIDS WILL LOVE THIS STUFF.

THEY AREN'T BORN WANTING

JUNK FOOD, BUT WE TRAIN

THEM TO LIKE JUNK FOOD AND

WE THINK WHAT GOOD PARENTS

WE ARE.

NO WAY.

> I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF

INTERVIEWING BARRETT

GRILLES WHEN HE WAS ON

THIS SHOW SEVERAL YEARS

AGO, AND NOW HE HAS A

REALITY SHOW ON SURVIVAL.

THIS LOVELY LADY WHO SITS

BESIDE ME DECIDED SHE

WANTED TO LEARN HOW TO EAT

BUGS AND CRI CRICKETS AND

SNAKES AND WHATEVER --

Wendy: AND LIVE OFF

THE LAND.

Pat: DID YOU DO THAT?

Wendy: WELL, FOR A

WEEKEND.

Pat: YOU LIKE THAT?

Wendy: I LIKE IT.

UP NEXT, JOIN ME FOR A

WILDERNESS SURVIVAL

EXPERIENCE, WHERE I GOT A

REAL TASTE OF THE GREAT

OUTDOORS.

OKAY, I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M

DOING THIS, BUT IN A

SURVIVAL SITUATION, THIS

LITTLE ROACH WILL BE A

GREAT SOURCE OF FAT AND

CARBOHYDRATES.

I'LL LET YOU KNOW HOW THAT

WENT DOWN AND MUCH MORE,

Wendy: IMAGINE YOUR

CAR BREAKS DOWN IN A

REMOTE AREA AND YOU'RE ALL

ALONE, OR YOU'RE HIKING

AND YOU SUDDENLY BECOME

LOST AND YOUR CELL PHONE

DOESN'T WORK?

THAT HAPPENED TO ME.

WITH ALL OF THE HIKING I

DO, I DECIDED IT WAS TIME

TO TAKE A WILDERNESS

SURVIVAL COURSE TO MAKE

SURE I KNOW THE BASICS OF

SURVIVAL, AND HOPEFULLY

AFTER THIS, YOU WILL, TOO.

WELCOME TO MOUNTAIN

SHEPHERD WILDERNESS

SURVIVAL SCHOOL, LOCATED

IN THE BEAUTIFUL AND

RUGGED MOUNTAINS OF

SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA.

HERE REGGIE AND GINA TRAIN

MILITARY AND REGULAR FOLKS

HOW TO SURVIVE THE

WORST-CASE SCENARIOS AND

LIVE TO TELL ABOUT THEM.

THEY FOCUS ON SEVEN MAIN

SURVIVAL SKILLS:

POSITIVEMENTAL ATTITUDE,

FIRST-AID, SHELTER, FIRE

CRAFT, SIGNALLING, WATER,

AND FOOD.

MOST PEOPLE THINK FINDING

FOOD AND WATER ARE THEIR

TOP PRIORITIES IN A

SURVIVAL SITUATION, BUT

ACTUALLY IT IS LIKE

BUILDING A SAFE SHELTER

THAT SHOULD BE YOUR FIRST

ORDER OF BUSINESS.

BECAUSE THE ENVIRONMENT

IS GOING TO DO YOU IN MUCH

QUICKER THAN ALMOST

ANYTHING ELSE.

Wendy: REGGIE TOLD US

HOW TO TAKE A SIMPLE

PLASTIC SHEET YOU CAN BUY

ALMOST ANYWHERE, A PIECE

OF STURDY STRING, AND IN

NO TIME YOU'VE GOT

SHELTER.

PLASTIC IS VERY

FORGIVING.

EVEN IF IT IS NOT PERFECT,

IT IS STILL GOING TO WORK

FOR YOU.

Wendy: THIS TIME OF

YEAR, THE FOREST FLOOR

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

STUFFING YOU NEED TO MAKE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

A COM ME MATTRESS.

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

RACHEL HOOLEY AND I WERE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

DETERMINED NOT ONLY TO

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

MAKE OUR OWN SHELTER, BUT

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

TO SLEEP IN IT.

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

I'M VERY EXCITED ABOUT OUR

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

MATTRESS TONIGHT.

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

LOOK AT THIS.

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

THIS IS GOING TO BE BETTER

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

THAN A HOTEL.

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

WELL, WE ARE HERE, SNUG AS

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

A BUG IN OUR TENTMENT HERE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

ITENT.HERE IS RACHEL.

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

HELLO.

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

GIVES YOU ALL OF THE

Wendy: IT RAINED

Wendy: IT RAINED

DURING THE NIGHT, BUT OUR

SHELTER KEPT US WARM AND

DRY.

ANOTHER VITAL PART OF

SURVIVAL, SPECIAL IN

WINTER, IS FIRE.

FIRE SERVES A NUMBER OF

PURPOSES, OTHER THAN JUST

KEEPING YOU WARM.

IT ALLOWS YOU TO COOK,

BOIL WATER FOR DRINKING,

KEEP BUGS AND PREDATORS

AWAY, ACTS AS A SIGNALLING

DEVICE, AND SUPPORTS THE

NUMBER ONE SURVIVAL SKILL:

KEEPING A POSITIVE MENTAL

ATTITUDE.

IF I THREW THAT ON MY

TINDER, I WOULD SMOTHER

IT.

THIS IS WHERE THE PLATFORM

AND BRACE COMES IN.

YOU PUT THE BRACE NEXT TO

YOUR PLATFORM, LIKE THIS,

RIGHT NEXT TO THE TINDER.

YOU TAKE YOUR FIRST

KINDLING, BUNCH IT UP NICE

AND TIGHT, AND YOU SET IT

RIGHT ON TOP OF THE FIRE.

IF YOU SEE ANY SMOKE, IT

IS SAYING, REGGIE, I NEED

OXYGEN.

Wendy: I CHOSE THE

SPLIT AND STEEL EFFORT TO

MAKE MY FIRE.

I USED VASELINE, HAND

SANITIZER, EVEN CHAPSTICK

MAKES A CHEAP AND EASY

ACCELERANT IN AN EMERGENCY

SITUATION.

SO IF YOU COME OUT INTO

THE WOODS AND YOU DON'T

HAVE AN ACCELERANT TO

START YOUR FIRE, YOU CAN

TAKE A VERY SHARP KNIFE

AND SCRAPE IT AND CREATE

WHAT IS CALLED, LIKE, A

FLUFF, WHICH MAKES

EXCELLENT TINDER.

FELLOW SURVIVOR CLASSMATE

SAGE WAS SUCCESSFUL USING

A FIRE STARTER TO GET HER

BLAZE GOING.

NOW FOR ONE OF THE MOST

IMPORTANT ELEMENTS OF

SURVIVAL, WATER.

THE AVERAGE PERSON CAN

ONLY SURVIVE ABOUT THREE

DAYS WITHOUT WATER.

YOU CAN SURVIVE THREE

WEEKS OR MORE WITHOUT

FOOD.

YOUR BODY IS ABOUT 75%

TO 80% WATER.

SO YOU'RE GOING TO GET

DEHYDRATED REALLY QUICK IF

YOU DON'T KEEP SIPPING

THAT WATER.

RATION YOUR SWEAT AND NOT

YOUR WATER.

Wendy: IF YOU DON'T

HAVE WATER PURCATION

TABLETS AND CANNOT BOIL

WATER, TRY TO FIND THE

ENTRY PLACE WHERE THE

SPRING IS COMING OUT OF

THE MOUNTAIN, LIKE THIS

ONE.

THE WATER IS COMING OUT

OF THE GROUND RIGHT

THERE -- SEE IT!

SO IT IS BEING FILTERED

HERE AND COMES OUT HERE.

Wendy: THIS PROVIDES

YOUR BEST CHANCE OF

DRINKING THE WATER BEFORE

IT IS CONTAMINATED.

AND LAST ON THE LIST IS

FOOD.

REGGIE SHOWED US HOW TO

MAKE A SQUIRREL TRAP WITH

A SIMPLE PIECE OF WIRE.

I'M GOING TO FUNNEL HIM

RIGHT INTO MY SNARE.

Wendy: THIS TIME OF

YEAR, EDIBLE PLANTS ARE

SCARCE.

BUT FORTUNATELY, THE

FOREST PROVIDES PLENTY OF

EDIBLE BUGS.

THE BEST WAY TO EAT ANY

INSECT IS TO COOK IT.

WORMS, CRICKETS AND

BEETLES ARE YOUR BEST

FIND.

WE WENT FOR THE POPULAR

WOOD ROAST.

LOOK AT THIS.

IT IS A BUFFET.

I TOLD YOU WHEN YOU FIND

ONE, YOU USUALLY FIND A

HUGE FAMILY.

Wendy: SO IF WE WERE

REALLY HUNGRY, THIS WOOD

ROAST WOULD BE AN

EXCELLENT SOURCE OF WHAT?

THE FATS AND THE

CARBOHYDRATES THAT YOU

NEED, WHICH YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO GET FROM PLANTS.

I'M NOT SAYING DON'T GO

AFTER PLANTS, BUT THESE

ARE READILY AVAILABLE AND

THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED.

Wendy: OKAY, SO WE'RE

GOING TO ROAST THEM.

ROAST THEM BECAUSE THEY

COULD HAVE A PARASITE ON

THEM.

Wendy: NICE AND

COOKED.

OKAY.

I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M DOING

THIS, BUT IN A SURVIVAL

SITUATION THIS LITTLE

ROACH WILL BE A GREAT

SOURCE OF FAT AND

CARBOHYDRATES.

TASTES LIKE A NUT.

I KNOW.

Wendy: IT TASTES LIKE

A REALLY TASTY NUT.

VERY NUTTY.

SO YOU JUST GOT OVER

THAT AVERSION AND NOW

YOU'RE GOING TO SURVIVE.

Wendy: THANK YOU.

Wendy: MY FIRST

NUT -- MY FIRST BUG,

RATHER, THAT TASTED LIKE A

NUT.

Pat: WAS IT REALLY

THAT GOOD?

Pat Wendy: IT ACTUALLY

TASTESED PRETTY GOOD.

TASTES PRETTY GOOD.

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT WAS A

ROACH.

Pat: I'VE EATEN A

FRIED SCORPION IN CHINA.

Wendy: YOU HAVE?

IF YOU'RE GOING INTO A

SURVIVAL SITUATION, PAT,

SURVIVAL SITUATION, PAT,

THESE ARE SOME THINGS THAT

MT. SHEPHERD RECOMMENDS.

FIRST OF ALL, YOU HAVE TO

HAVE A GOOD KNIFE BECAUSE

IT DOES SO MANY THINGS.

THEN IF YOU CAN GET A

TRASH BAG -- YOU CAN ORDER

IT ONLINE, AND YOU CAN CUT

A HOLE IN THE TOP AND MAKE

A RAIN PONCHO, AND BECAUSE

IT IS BLAZE ORANGE, IT

MIGHT HELP YOU IN RESCUE.

IF YOU CAN KEEP A LITTLE

FIRE STARTER -- AND THESE

ARE LITTLE FIRE STARTER

TABLETS -- THESE MAKE A

QUICK FIRE.

A WHISTLE AND A REFLECTOR

MIRROR, GREAT FOR RESCUE.

Pat: REALLY?

Wendy: YEAH.

AND YOU WANT TO KEEP A

LITTLE FIRST-AID KIT.

IT HAS A CLOTH AND

IBUPROFEN AND BANDAGES,

AND SOMETHING TO NIBBLE ON

BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW HOW

LONG YOU'RE GOING TO BE

OUT THERE, UNLESS YOU WANT

TO EAT BUGS.

THIS BAG IS GREAT BECAUSE

IT HOLDS A LOT OF WATER,

AND IT IS WATER-PROOF.

YOU CAN GET THIS AT

MT. SHEPHERD'S WEBSITE.

IT IS VERY LIGHTWEIGHT.

IF YOU KEEP THIS IN YOUR

CAR OR BACKPACK, THEN

YOU'RE GOING TO BE ALL

SET.

Pat: THE AVERAGE

PERSON WATCHING THIS SHOW,

WHEN WOULD SOMETHING LIKE

THIS EVER HAPPEN?

Wendy: REGGIE WAS

SAYING THE FOLKS IN TEXAS

THAT WERE GOING THROUGH

THAT MASSIVE FLOODING,

THEY COULD HAVE USED SOME

OF THESE ITEMS AS WELL.

SO THIS IS MODERN SURVIVAL

FOR THE MODERN WORLD.

Pat: IF YOU GET

CAUGHT IN THE SNOWSTORM --

I KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE

BEING IN A FOUR-WHEEL

DRIVE VEHICLE AND YOU

COULDN'T DRIVE.

Wendy: ABSOLUTELY.

YOU'RE CAR COULD GET STUCK

AND YOU COULD BE OUT IN

THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE.

IT IS BETTER SAFE THAN

SORRY.

I HAVE MORE INFORMATION ON

HOW YOU CAN SURVIVE IN THE

WILDERNESS AND ABOUT THE

MT. SHEPHERD SURVIVAL

SCHOOL, AND HOW YOU CAN

GET THE SURVIVAL KIT.

AND YOU CAN GET THAT BY

GOING TO cbn.com.

Pat: DO YOU WANT TO

CLIMB THE HIMALAYANS.

Wendy: WHAT DO YOU DO

AFTER MT. KILIMANJARO.

BUT THIS WEEKEND IN THE

WILDERNESS WAS NICE.

Pat: YOU REALLY LIKE

THIS?

Pat: I LOV Wendy: I LOVE

CAMPING.

Pat: I LOVE CAMPING.

ONE TIME I HAD A LITTLE

BEETLE DOG WITH ME AND MY

WIFE AND CHILDREN, AND WE

HEARD THIS LITTLE RACKET

OUTSIDE, AND MY LITTLE

BEAGLE DOG JUMPED A SKUNK.

AND MY LITTLE DOG WAS --

Wendy: DID IT SMELL?

Pat: FORTUNATELY THE

LITTLE SKUNK SCURRIED ON

THE WAY AND LEFT HIM

ALONE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU DO

WITH A DOG IN A TENT THAT

HAS BEEN SPRAYED BY A

SKUNK.

IN ANY EVENT, THAT WAS MY

WILDERNESS ADVENTURE.

WHERE DO YOU GET THIS

STUFF AGAIN?

Wendy: IT IS CALLED

THE MOUNTAIN SHEPHERD

WILDERNESS SCHOOL, AND

THEY ARE ON LINE.

AND WE HAVE A LINK ON OUR

WEBSITE.

AND YOU CAN ALSO SIGN UP

FOR THEIR COURSES.

Pat: THAT IS VERY

PORTABLE.

IT DOESN'T WEIGH MUCH AS

ALL.

Wendy: OH, NO.

JUST A FEW OUNCES.

> WELL, COMING UP, TWO

BROTHERS FROM THE GREATEST

GENERATION WHO BOTH FAULT

TO DEFENFOUGHTTO DEFEND OUR FREEDOM.

WE'RE GOING TO WHIP

THEM IN A HURRY, AND THIS

IS GOING TO BE OVER IN THE

SPRING.

EVERYBODY HAD THE SAME

PATRIOTIC FEELING.

NOBODY TRIED TO JUMP SHIP.

Wendy: STAY TUNED AS

WE HONOR TO AMERICAN

HEROS, JIM AND SAM, AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

TODAY IS NOVEMBER 11,

VETERANS' DAY.

AN OFFICIAL UNITED NATIONS

FEDERAL HOLIDAY SET ASIDE

TO HONOR THE MEN AND WOMEN

WHO HAVE SERVED IN THE

UNITED STATES ARMED

FORCES.

RIGHT NOW YOU'RE ABOUT TO

SEE THE STORY OF TWO

VETERANS, BOTH BROTHERS,

THAT SERVED DURING WORLD

WAR II.

THEY'RE BOTH IN THEIR

90s, ACTIVE AND SPRY.

AND THEY'RE EXTRAORDINARY

EXAMPLES AS WHAT HAS COME

TO BE KNOWN AS THE

GREATEST GENERATION.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN

70 YEARS SINCE WORLD WAR

II CAME TO A CLOSE.

THE WAR IS OVER.

PEACE HAS COME.

Reporter: LESS THAN

ONE MILLION OF THE

16 MILLION AMERICANS WHO

SERVED IN THE WAR ARE

ALIVE TO TELL ABOUT IT.

BUT IT TOOK THE EFFORTS

AND SACRIFICES OF AN

ENTIRE GENERATION TO BRING

AMERICA VICTORY.

A FACT MADE CLEAR AT THIS

V.E. DAY COMMEMORATION.

WE ARE HERE TODAY TO

SALUTE THOSE OF THE WORLD

WAR II GENERATION WHO

HELPED SAVE THE WORLD FROM

TYRANNY.

Reporter: THEY'RE

OFTEN REFERRED TO AS

AMERICA'S GREATEST

GENERATION.

RECENTLY WE SPOKE WITH TWO

OF THEM.

BROTHERS JIM AND SAM

EVANS.

JIM IS THE OLDER OF THE

TWO, THE SPRY 96-YEAR-OLD

STARTS HIS DAY WITH HIS

COMPANION OF MANY YEARS, A

CHOCOLATE LAB NAMED EASY.

HE IS MY BUDDY.

I'VE GOT TO KEEP HIM

AROUND.

HE WAKES ME UP EVERY

MORNING.

Reporter: SAM WILL

SOON TURN 94.

HIS DAILY ROUTINE STARTS

WITH A POT OF COFFEE.

THEY GREW UP IN THE NAVY

TOWN OF NORFOLK, VIRGINIA.

THEY BOTH REMEMBER THE

JAPANESE ATTACK ON PEARL

HARBOR.

JIM WAS WITH A BUDDY WHO

SERVED IN THE NAVY.

IT CAME OVER THE RADIO

AND THEY INSTRUCTED HIM TO

GET BACK TO THE SHIP.

I THINK EVERYBODY WAS MAD.

I DON'T THINK ANYBODY HAD

ANY FEAR OF IT.

IT WAS A VERY UNEASY

PERIOD FOR EVERYBODY.

THEY WERE A LITTLE

JAPANESE COUNTRY, WE'RE

GOING TO WHIP THEM IN A

HURRY AND IT IS GOING TO

BE OVER IN THE SPRING.

WE FOUND OUT WE WERE

WRONG.

Reporter: THEY SOON

FOUND OUT THE TRADE SKILLS

THEIR DAD TAUGHT THEM

WOULD BE CRITICAL IN THE

WAR.

WE COULD DO ELECTRICAL

WORK AND MACHINE SHOP WORK

AND WELDING AND ENGINE

REPAIRS.

MOST ANYTHING WE WANTED TO

DO.

Reporter: SAM

VOLUNTEERED FOR THE COAST

GUARD IN MAY OF 1942.

HE SERVED AS A MACHINIST

UNTIL THE END OF THE WAR.

I WAS PART OF TH THE

ADMIRAL STAFF, TO PREPARE

ANYTHING ON THE FLOTILLA

THAT WENT BAD.

Reporter: EVEN BEHIND

THE LINES, THERE WAS

ALWAYS UNCERTAINTY AND

DANGER, ESPECIALLY ON A

SMALL ISLAND OFF THE

COASTAL OF IWO JIMA.

HE SAYS HIS FAITH IN GOD

CARRIED HIM THROUGH THAT

TIME.

I COULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN

ON WITHOUT IT.

Reporter: JIM WORKED

IN THE NAVY SHIPYARD

DURING THE WAR.

HE FELT HE DID HIS PART TO

SUPPORT THE COUNTRY.

EVERYBODY WANTED TO DO

THEY COULD FOR THE WAR

EFFORT.

THOSE WHO COULD BOUGHT WAR

BONDS AND WORKED IN THE

DEFENSE INDUSTRY

EVERYWHERE THEY COULD.

I WAS IN THE NAVY AND I

WORKED SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.

AND FOR A LONG PERIOD IT

WAS 12 HOURS A DAY.

Reporter: JIM JOINED

THE NAVY IN 1944, AND WAS

ABOARD THE NEWLY REPAIRED

U.S.S. CALIFORNIA WHEN SHE

RETURNED TO PEARL HARBOR.

IT WAS FOUR BATTLESHIPS

AND 10 DESTROYERS AND D.E.

BOATS FOR ESCORT.

ALL OF THE BATTLESHIPS HAD

BEEN SUNK AT PEARL AND

RAISED AND REPAIRED ON THE

WEST COAST AND THEY WERE

ALL SENT BACK AT THE SAME

TIME.

WE WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO

BE ON DECK, BUT I SNEAKED

UP AND GOT A CHANCE TO SEE

THE BIG GUNS FIRED.

EVERYBODY HAD THE SAME

PATRIOTIC FEELING.

NOBODY TRIED TO JUMP SHIP.

Reporter: FINALLY THE

WAR WAS OVER, AND MILLIONS

OF SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN

RETURNED HOME.

FOR MANY, THERE WAS LITTLE

FAN FAIR.

I DON'T REMEMBER ANY

RECOGNITION WHEN I CAME

HOME.

NOBODY CAME ANY ATTENTION

TO IT.

THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE

COMING HOME.

YOU JUST COULDN'T HAVE A

PARADE FOR EVERY GROUP

THAT CAME IN.

Reporter: NOT ONES TO

COMPLAIN, THEY WENT ON

WITH THEIR LIVES.

SAM MARRIED OLI MAE AND

HAD THREE CHILDREN AND

ENJOYED 64 YEARS OF

MARRIAGE BEFORE HER DEATH.

LATER HE MARRIED MARGARET,

WHO PASSED AWAY IN 2013.

JIM WAS MARRIED NEARLY 60

YEARS TO ANNIE.

THEY HAD TWO CHILDREN AND

SIX GRANDCHILDREN.

TODAY THE EVANS' BROTHERS

ARE DOING JUST FINE.

BOTH OF STILL TAKING CARE

OF THEMSELVES, LIVING IN

THEIR OWN HOMES AND

WORKING IN THEIR SHOPS.

SAM CAN STILL FIX ALL

MANNER OF THINGS.

AFTER 89 YEARS, JIM IS

STILL RUNNING THE FAMILY

BUSINESS WITH EASY BY HIS

SIDE.

THE DOCTOR AND EVERYBODY

TOLD ME WHATEVER I'M

DOING, KEEP DOING IT.

I LIKE MY WORK AND I DON'T

WANT TO RETIRE.

Reporter: IT'S THAT

SAME SPIRIT THAT REMINDS

US OF THE VALOR AND

SACRIFICE OF THE MILLIONS

OF AMERICANS WHO WORKED

AND FOUGHT FOR OUR

FREEDOM, WHICH ISN'T FREE.

ONE OF THE REASONS WE

ADMIRE AND LOVE THAT

GENERATION SO MUCH IS NOT

ONLY WHAT THEY DID FOR US

BETWEEN 1941 AND 1945, BUT

THE EXAMPLE OF HOW THEY

HAVE LIVED THEIR LIVES

SINCE THEN.

THAT IS THE GREATNESS AND

GRANDEUR OF THEIR

GENERATION.

Reporter: AS FOR JIM

AND SAM, THEY FINALLY GOT

THE RECOGNITION THEY

DESERVED.

IN MAY 2014, THE HONOR

FLIGHT ORGANIZATION

CELEBRATED THEM AND THEIR

SEMIFINALS.

SERVICE.

IT WAS THE BEST THING

THAT HAPPENED TO ME.

EVERYWHERE WE STOPPED, WE

WERE CONGRATULATED AND

THANKED FOR OUR SERVICES.

WE WERE TREATED FIRST

CLASS EVERYWHERE WE WENT.

IT KINDS OF PUTS A LUMP

IN OUR THROAT, SEEING THE

LITTLE BOY SCOUTS AND GIRL

SCOUTS, 5:00 AND THE

MORNING TO COME OUT THERE

TO WELCOME US.

THANK YOU.

SEEING ALL OF THIS

OUTLAY OF EFFORTS TO HONOR

US -- IT MEANS A LOT.

Wendy: AND JIM AND

SAM EVANS, TWO AMAZING

VETERANS, TWO AMAZING

BROTHERS, ARE WITH US IN

OUR AUDIENCE RIGHT NOW.

THANK YOU BOTH FOR YOUR

SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY.

WE SALUTE YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU.

WHAT AN AMAZING STORY.

Pat: I THINK IT'S

TIME NOW TO PRAY FOR OUR

VETERANS.

THOSE WHO SERVE, MEN AND

WOMEN.

I SEE WOUNDED WARRIORS,

PEOPLE WHO ARE PARALYZED,

WHO HAVE LOST LIMBS, LOST

THEIR HEARING, HAVE HAD

STEEL PLATES PUT IN THEIR

HEADS BECAUSE OF INJURIES

WITH THE I.E.D.S, AND ALL

OF THE REST THEY

ENCOUNTERED IN COMBAT.

WE'VE GOT WORLD WAR II AND

THE KOREAN WAR AND THE

VIETNAM WAR AND THE GULF

WAR, AND IT LOOKS LIKE

WE'VE BEEN AT WAR, YOU

KNOW, FOREVER.

AND IT'S STILL THAT WAY.

AND WE NEED OUR MEN AND

WOMEN WHO SERVE TO HELP

US.

SO WOULD YOU JOIN ME RIGHT

NOW, WHEREVER YOU ARE ON

THIS VETERANS' DAY, TO

PRAY A SPECIAL PRAYER FOR

OUR VETERANS.

FATHER, WE THANK YOU FOR

MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE HAD

THE COURAGE TO SERVE.

SOME WERE PART OF A DRAFT,

SOME HAVE VOLUNTEERED --

WHATEVER, THEY HAVE BEEN

IN U OUR ARMED FORCES, AND

THEY HAVE BEEN IN HARM'S

WAY AND THEY HAVE

EXHIBITED GREAT BRAVERY.

AND SOME HAVE DIED, AND

SOME HAVE BEEN WOUNDED,

AND SOME HAVE BEEN

EMOTIONALLY SCARRED, BUT

WHATEVER THE PROBLEM, I

PRAY, LORD, THAT YOU MIGHT

VISIT THEM NOW WITH YOUR

BLESSING, AND THAT YOU

WOULD LET THEM KNOW THAT A

GRATEFUL NATION IS

THANKFUL THAT THEY SERVED

AND WHAT THEIR SERVICE

MEANT TO ALL OF US AS

CITIZENS OF THIS LAND.

BLESS THEM, GOD, ON THIS

VETERANS' DAY IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: WELL, HERE AT

CBN, WE'RE HONORING OUR

VETERANS OF ACTIVE DUTIES

AND THEIR FAMILIES

THROUGHOUT THE YEAR WITH

AN OUTREACH THAT WE CALL

"HELPING THE HOMEFRONT."

AND IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, YOU'RE PART OF

THIS OUTREACH.

HERE IS HOW WE RECENTLY

HELPED A NAVY SAILOR AND

HIS WIFE.

Reporter: JASON AND

TIFFANY ENJOY RECOGNIZING

VETERANS' DAY.

THEY BELIEVE IT IS AN

OPPORTUNITY TO CELEBRATE

EVERYONE WHO SERVES OR HAS

SERVED IN THE MILITARY.

JASON IS A SAILOR ON BOARD

THE U.S.S. McBALL.

I'M INCREDIBLY PROUD OF

HIM, BECAUSE HE IS MAKING

A SACRIFICE, NOT JUST FOR

THE FREEDOM OF OUR NATION,

BUT ALSO SO HE CAN PROVIDE

FOR US AND HAVE A BETTER

FUTURE.

Reporter: DEPLOYMENTS

ARE NEVER EASY ON

FAMILIES, BUT WHEN JASON

IIS OUT TO SEA, HE KNOWS HE

CAN COUNT ON TIFFANY TO DO

A GREAT JOB.

I THINK SHE DOES A

GREAT JOB.

I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT HER.

Reporter: BUT THE

COUPLE FACED THE BIGGEST

CHALLENGE OF THEIR LIVES

WHEN TIFFANY DEVELOPED AN

ALLERGENIC REACTION TO

NEARLY EVERYTHING.

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A

RARE IMMUNITY DISEASE.

IT WAS HARD HAVING A

RARE CONDITION THAT IS

VERY HARD TO UNDERSTAND,

AND THAT MAKES YOU

BASICALLY INTOLERANT TO

THE MAJORITY OF THE WORLD

AROUND YOU.

FOOD HAS BECOME AN ISSUE.

BREATHING, WHEN ANYONE

GETS NEAR ME, BECAUSE OF

THEIR CLOTHES OR THEIR

SHAMPOO OR ANYTHING --

I FEEL LIKE SHE IS VERY

STRONG TO KEEP DEALING

WITH THIS.

I CAN SEE HOW TOUGH IT IS.

Reporter: THEIR

LEADERS AT WAVE CHURCH IN

VIRGINIA BEACH KNEW THAT

TIFFANY NEEDED AN INFRARED

SAUNA THAT COULD HELP HER,

BUT IT COST A COUPLE

THOUSAND DOLLARS.

PASTOR STEVE KELLY HAD A

SURPRISE FOR THE COUPLE AT

THEIR VETERANS' DAY

SERVICE EARLIER THIS WEEK.

I THINK WE HAVE A GIFT

CARD TO WHOLE FOODS FOR

$400, THAT WE WANT TO

PRESENT YOU WITH TONIGHT.

[APPLAUSE]

AND WE'VE ALSO GOT --

THIS IS PRETTY COOL, A

WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM

FOR YOUR ENTIRE HOUSE, FOR

THE WHOLE HOUSE.

THANKS TO CBN.

AND THE LAST THING IS A

HEAVENLY HEAT SAUNA THAT

DETOXIFIES YOUR WHOLE

SYSTEM, AND CBN HAS JUMPED

IN AND SAID, WE WANT TO DO

THAT.

THE TOTAL VALUE OF

EVERYTHING FOR YOU GUYS

TONIGHT IS $6,000.

ISN'T THAT AWESOME?

AND, TURN AROUND --

HERE IT COMES.

OH, MY GOSH, LOOK AT THAT.

THAT -- HEY, THAT LOOKS

FANTASTIC.

[APPLAUSE]

WE LOVE YOU GUYS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR

SERVICE.

THANK YOU.

WE HONOR YOU AND WE THANK

GOD FOR YOU.

AMEN.

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: THAT'S ONE MORE

OUTREACH THAT WE'RE

PRIVILEGED TO BE INVOLVED

IN.

WAVE CHURCH HERE IS JUST

FANTASTIC.

STEVE KELLY IS A

TREMENDOUS PASTOR.

THE CONGREGATION IS

MARVELOUS, AND WE KIND OF

WORK TOGETHER.

OPERATION "HELPING THE

HOMEFRONT" IS MEETING THE

NEEDS OF HUNDREDS OF

MILITARY FAMILIES EACH

MONTH.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP, IT IS

1-800-759-0700.

IF YOU WANT TO SAY, MY

GIFT GOES TO "HELPING THE

HOMEFRONT."

THEY ARE MILITARY FAMILIES

WHO ARE HURTING

FINANCIALLY BECAUSE THEY

DON'T GET PAID A LOT OF

MONEY, AND THEY HAVE NEEDS

ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT THEY

GET COMPENSATED FOR.

SO THAT'S WHAT WE DO, IS

TO JOIN WITH LOCAL

CONGREGATIONS TO SAY LET'S

HELP THE HOMEFRONT.

WENDY?

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

BISHOP DALE BRAUNER JOINS

US LIVE.

HE HAS 20,000 MEMBERS IN

HIS CONGREGATION.

COMING UP, HE'LL TALK

ABOUT HOW HE CAN TAKE

CHARGE OF CHANGE IN YOUR

LIFE.

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU HAS

URGED AMERICAN JEWS TO

UNITE IN THEIR SUPPORT FOR

NUCLEAR DEAL DIVIDED

U.S.-JEWISH GROUPS AND

LEADERS.

HE SAID ISRAEL IS THE ONLY

NATION IN THE REGION WHERE

THE CHRISTIAN POPULATION

CONSERVATIVE, AND REFORMED

JEWS CAN ALL FEEL AT HOME

IN ISRAEL.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: LET ME ASK

YOU, THE WORD "CHANGE,"

DOES THAT WORD RATTLE YOU?

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO.

YOU CAN LEARN TO TAKE

CHARGE OF THE CHANGES IN

YOUR LIFE AND CREATE YOUR

OWN DESTINY.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN

SAID THAT THE ONLY

CONSTANT IN LIFE IS

CHANGE.

SOME CHANGES ARE WELCOME

AND EVEN REFRESHING, BUT

OTHERS THROW OUR LIVES

INTO A TAIL SPIN.

PASTOR AND AUTHOR DALE

BRAUNER SAYS NO MATTER

WHAT COMES YOUR WAY, YOUR

RESPONSE DETERMINES

WHETHER YOU'RE FLOURISH OR

FAIL.

IF YOU SHOW ME YOUR

DAILY ROUTINE, AND I WILL

SHOW YOU WHERE YOU WILL BE

10 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD.

Reporter: IN HIS NEW

BOOK "CHANGE YOUR

TRAJECTORY," HE SHARES HOW

GOD'S PLAN FOR OUR LIVES

ALWAYS INCLUDES CHANGE AND

HOW WE CAN THRIVE THROUGH

EACH TRANSITION.

Wendy: AND PLEASE

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB," THE PASTOR OF "WORD

OF FAITH CATHEDRAL," IN

ATLANTA GEORGIA.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

I LOVE BEING HERE.

Wendy: WHY DO PEOPLE

FEAR CHANGE SO MUCH?

BECAUSE IT IS THE

UNKNOWN.

WE FEAR THE UNKNOWN.

EVERY TIME YOU HAVE A

CHANGE, IT MEANS THAT

YOU'RE LOSING THE STATUS

QUO, LIFE AS YOU HAVE

KNOWN IT.

IT BRINGS US OUT OF OUR

COMFORT ZONE AND TAKES US

INTO THIS AREA TO WHERE WE

HAVE TO TRUST GOD.

Wendy: AND YOU SAY

THAT IT IS NOT SO MUCH

CHANGE THAT UPSETS PEOPLE

BUT TRANSITION.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

WELL, THAT'S A GREAT,

GREAT QUESTION.

CHANGE IS ACTUALLY THE

EVENT ITSELF.

BUT TRANSITION IS THE

EMOTIONAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL,

RELATIONAL, AND FINANCIAL

PROCESSING OF THE CHANGE.

A PERSON CAN LOSE THEIR

JOB, FOR EXAMPLE.

THAT'S AN EVENT THAT

HAPPENS.

IT HAPPENED, YOU LOST THE

JOB.

Wendy: THAT'S CHANGE.

BUT NOW THE TRANSITION

IS COMING HOME AND HOW TO DO

YOU SHARE THAT WITH YOUR

SPOUSE?

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO YOUR

CHILDREN?

HOW DOES THAT IMPACT YOU

NOW FINANCIALLY?

IT IS ALL OF THE

INTELLECTUAL, EMOTIONAL,

PSYCHOLOGICAL, AND

FINANCIAL PROCESSING OF

THE CHANGE.

THAT'S WHAT GETS US, THE

TRANSITION.

IT IS THE SAME THING THAT

HAPPENS TO A WOMAN WHEN

SHE IS HAVING A BABY.

SHE GOES INTO TRANSITION,

AND H SHE IS BIRTHING

SOMETHING.

SHE IS OPENING UP FROM 7

CENTIMETRES TO 10

CENTIMETRES, AND IT'S THAT

TRANSITION WHERE WOMEN

TURN TO WHERE THEY ARE

LEAST HOLY.

BUT THEIR BIRTHING

SOMETHING, SO THERE IS A

REASON TO ALL OF THE

MADNESS.

Wendy: RIGHT.

NONE OF US LIKES TO BE OUT

OF OUR COMFORT ZONE.

BUT WHY IS BEING OUT OF

OUR COMFORT ZONE ACTUALLY

GOOD FOR US?

IT IS REALLY GOOD FOR

US BECAUSE IT FORCES US TO

GROW.

IT ALLOWS US TO DISCOVER

SOMETHING IN US THAT WE

WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN.

THE HOLY SPIRIT ALWAYS

DWELLS RICHEST FOR US

RIGHT OUTSIDE OF THE

COMFORT ZONE.

VICTORY IS ALWAYS ON THE

OTHER SIDE OF

INCONVENIENCE AND

UNCOMFORTABLE.

SO IF WE'RE ABLE TO DO

THAT, IF WE'RE ABLE TO

PRESS OUR WAY THROUGH THE

DISCOMFORT OF BEING OUT OF

THE COMFORT ZONE, WE

DISCOVER NEW TALENTS, NEW

ABILITIES, NEW CREATE

CREATEVITIES, AND ALL

KINDS OF INCREDIBLE

POTENTIAL IN OUR LIFE.

Wendy: BISHOP, YOU

SAY IF WE DO THIS

SUCCESSFUL, AND WE DON'T

TOTALLY RESIST THE CHANGE,

THIS COULD ACTUALLY IMPACT

OUR DESTINY?

ABSOLUTELY.

ABSOLUTELY.

DESTINY IS WHERE WE'RE

ULTIMATELY HEADED.

AND NOBODY AASTR'S TRAJECTORY

STAYS THE SAME.

THIS IS LIKE A CHANGING

SEA SCAPE.

EVERYTHING AROUND US IS

CHANGING.

AND THE MORE CHANGE THAT

HAPPENS IN OUR WORLD,

SOCIALLOGICAL CHANGE,

TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE,

POLITICAL CHANGE -- THE

MORE THAT OUR WORLD

CHANGES, THE MORE THAT OUR

ANCHORS HAVE TO GO DEEP IN

GOD WHO NEVER CHANGES.

JESUS CHRIST THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER MORE.

Wendy: WHY DO YOU SAY

IN YOUR BOOK THAT GOD'S

ANSWER TO EVERY PROBLEM IS

A PERSON?

WOW, THAT'S A GREAT

QUESTION.

I REALLY BELIEVE THAT WITH

ALL OF MY HEART.

YOU THINK ABOUT IT, WHEN

THERE WAS A PROBLEM OF

SLAVERY IN EGYPT.

GOD DID NOT GET A GROUP OF

LAWYERS TO CREATE AN

EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION.

HE RAISED UP A PERSON,

MOSES.

WHEN THE WALLS OF

JERUSALEM WERE IN RUIN, HE

RAISED UP A PERSON,

NEAMIAH.

GOD'S TO EVERY PROBLEM IS

A PERSON.

OUR PEACE DOESN'T COME

FROM A SYRINGE, IT DOESN'T

COME FROM A BOTTLE.

IT IS A PERSON, AND HE IS

CALLED THE PRINCE OF

PEACE.

WHENEVER THERE WAS A

PROBLEM, GOD ALWAYS RAISED

UP A PERSON WITH A

GOD-GIVEN VISION, A DIVINE

VISION.

SO GOD'S ANSWER TO EVERY

PROBLEM ULTIMATELY IS A

PERSON.

Wendy: WOW.

WHAT ROLE DOES VISION PLAY

IN SHAPING OUR DESTINY?

OH, WOW.

YOU KNOW, VISION HELPS US

TO SEE WHAT THE FINISHED

PRODUCT IS.

GOD IS THE KIND OF GOD --

ISAIAH 46: 10 -- WHO

DECLARES THE END OF A

THING FROM THE BEGINNING.

IT IS OUR BLUEPRINT THAT

SHOWS US HOW TO MAKE

THINGS FROM THE DESIGN

THAT GOD SHOWS US.

VISION IS ONE OF THE MOST

IINCREDIBLE SKILLS.

WER Wendy: YOU'RE HAVE A

VERY HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL

FAMILY, BUT I'M SURE

YOU'VE GOT THROUGH MANY,

MANY CHANGES IN YOUR LIFE,

AND YOU'VE DONE IT WELL.

WHAT IS THE KEY OR MAIN

THING YOU WOULD SAY TO

PEOPLE GOING THROUGH THAT

UNCOMFORTABLE TRANSITION

RIGHT NOW OR EVEN A

CHANGE?

IT IS NOT WHAT WE'RE

COMING FROM, IT'S WHAT

WE'RE GOING TO.

WHAT WAS GREATER THAN

COMING FROM EGYPT WAS

BEING DELIVERED TO THE

PROMISED LAND.

I'VE ENJOYED IT.

I'M EXCITED ABOUT WHAT MY

NEXT LEVEL IS GOING TO BE.

EVERY AGE OF LIFE HAS ITS

OWN GLORY WITH IT.

I'M JUST BLESSED TO BE IN

THE AGE AND STAGE WHERE I

AM RIGHT NOW.

Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT,

HE TAKES US FROM GLORY TO

GLORY.

YES, HE DOES,

ABSOLUTELY.

Wendy: THIS IS A

GREAT TOPIC AND A GREAT

BOOK, "CHANGE YOUR

TRAJECTORY."

AND IT IS AVAILABLE

WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD.

BISHOP, THANKS SO MUCH FOR

BEING WITH US.

IT IS MY PLEASURE.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: AND WE'LL BE

RIGHT BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: A QUICK

REMINDER WE HAVE A HOLIDAY

RECIPE CONTEST ON OUR

Facebook PAGE.

Facebook.COM/THE700CLUB."

THIS VIEWER WRITES IN,

,"I WAS BROUGHT UP IN

CHURCH BUT LOST MY WAY IN

MY TEENS AND EARLY 20s.

I'VE RECENTLY FOUND MY WAY

BACK INTO CHURCH AND HAVE

BECOME A STRONGER

CHRISTIAN.

MY FIANCE AND I ARE

PLANNING OUR CHRISTIAN

WEDDING FOR NEXT YEAR, AND

I'M TORN ABOUT WHETHER

SOME FAMILY MEMBERS SHOULD

BE INVOLVED AND INVITED.

IF I DON'T INVITE THEM, I

WILL FEEL LIKE SOMETHING

IS MISSING AND I FEAR

THOSE RELATIONSHIPS WILL

BE BROKEN.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: WHAT'S THE BIG

IDEA OF INVITING SOME

FAMILY MEMBERS TO YOUR

WEDDING?

BUT YOU DON'T WANT THEM

BRINGING SATANISM TO YOUR

WEDDING OR SOME OCCULT IN

CANTATIONS --

Wendy: BUT IF THEY'RE

JUST ATHEISTS, MAYBE

THEY'LL GET SAVED.

Pat: WE SPENT A LOT

OF TIME TALKING ABOUT HOW

TO EAT BUGS AND LIVE UNDER

TENTS.

Wendy: REGGIE AND

GINA SAUTE THOSE BUGS IN

OLIVE OIL.

Pat: WE LEAVE YOU

WITH TODAY'S POWER MINUTE

FROM JAMES: "IF ANY OF YOU

LACK WISDOM, LET THEM ASK

OF GOD WHO GIVES FREELY

AND WITHOUT REPROACH, AND

IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU."

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON, AND

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
