The 700 Club - December 4, 2015

When God used a prayer on The 700 Club to miraculously to heal David’s back, his dependence on painkillers lingered. Plus, NHL veteran Jarome Iginla is the model of consistency and professionalism, acknowledging Jesus Christ as his redeemer. Read Transcript


Wendy: A VICIOUS

ACCIDENT LEADS TO DECADES

OF ACHES AND AN

UNCONTROLLABLE ADDICTION.

SEE HOW HE WAS RESTORED IN

A WEEKEND.

HE TOLD ME THAT THIS IS

EASY.

Wendy: PLUS, JAROME

IGINLA LOOKS BACK AT HIS

STORIED CAREER.

LIFE GOES FAST, SO

FAST.

WHAT GIVES ME COMFORT IS

THAT IS OKAY.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE NATION IS STILL IN

MOURNING OVER THE DEADLY

SHOOTINGS IN CALIFORNIA.

AND THE MAN WHO LED THAT

RAMPAGE, THE FACTS ARE NOW

THAT HE HAD CONTACT WITH

SUSPECTED TERRORISTS.

AND HE AND HIS WIFE HAD A

HUGE STOCKPILE OF WEAPONS

AT HOME, SUGGESTING THEY

HAD MORE ATTACKS IN MIND.

Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT,

GORDON.

PEOPLE IN SAN BERNARDINO

CONTINUE TO MOURN THE 14

VICTIMS OF THE MASSACRE.

ONE OF THEM WAS A CATHOLIC

WIFE AND MOTHER WHO HAD

FLED IRAN TO GET AWAY FROM

ISLAMIC EXTREMISM AND THE

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Charlene: THOUSANDS

GATHERED FOR A CANDLELIGHT

VIGIL FOR THE VICTIMS OF

WEDNESDAY'S MASS SHOOTING.

THE MEDICAL EXAMINER

CONFIRMED THE NAMES OF

THOSE KILLED IN THE

ATTACK.

MICHAEL WETZEL LEAVES

BEHIND A WIFE AND SIX

CHILDREN.

THEY ARE VERY

OVERWHELMED.

THERE ARE SIX KIDS THAT

HAVE LOST THEIR FATHER.

Charlene: THIS WOMAN

LOST HER HUSBAND.

I ACTUALLY GOT AN EXTRA

HUG AND A KISS BEFORE HE

LEFT, SO I'M JUST HOLDING

ON TO THAT.

Charlene: AS STUNNED

COMMUNITIES MOURN THE

LIVES LOST, MORE DETAILS

HAVE EMERGED ABOUT THE

SUSPECTS IN THE SHOOTING.

SYED FAROOK AND HIS

PAKISTANI-BORN WIFE,

TASHFEEN MALIK.

SOME ARE SAYING FAROOK HAD

TIES TO TERROR SUSPECTS.

HE HAD BEEN IN CONTACT

WITH KNOWN TERROR SUSPECTS

OVERSEAS, AND HAD BECOME

RADICALIZED AFTER MARRYING

MALIK IN SAUDI ARABIA LAST

YEAR.

ANOTHER REASON THE

AUTHORITIES BELIEVE THE

SHOOTING MAY ARE

TERROR-RELATED, THE SARS

NAARSENAL OF WEAPONS FOUND

AT THE COUPLE'S HOME.

12 UNEXPLODED BOMBS, WHICH

MAY HAVE BEEN BASED ON AN

al-QAEDA MAGAZINE WERE

DISCOVERED, ALONG WITH

THOUSANDS OF ROUNDS OF

AMMUNITION.

THEY WERE EQUIPPED AND

COULD HAVE CONTINUED TO DO

ANOTHER ATTACK.

Charlene: ONE

NEIGHBOR'S WIFE HAD BECOME

SUSPICIOUS.

SHE NOTICED THEY HAD

BEEN RECEIVING PACKAGES,

QUITE A FEW PACKAGES,

WITHIN A SHORT AMOUNT OF

TIME.

AND THEY WERE DOING A LOT

OF WORK OUT IN THE GARAGE.

Charlene: BUT SOME

NEIGHBORS DIDN'T WANT TO

REPORT ANYTHING BECAUSE

THEY DIDN'T WANT TO BE

ACCUSED OF PROFILING.

MEANWHILE, AUTHORITIES SAY

FAROOK TRAVELLED TO SAUDI

ARABIA AT LEAST TWICE, IN

2013 AND 2014, AND SOME

HAVE QUESTIONED WHETHER OR

NOT HIS WIFE PLAYED A ROLE

IN HIS RADICALIZATION.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: I THINK WE

NEED TO TAKE THE BLINDERS

OFF, OR ARE WE SO

OPEN-MINDED OUR BRAINS

HAVE FALLEN OUT?

WHY ARE WE AFRAID OF BEING

ACCUSED OF PROFILING?

WHY AREN'T WE CALLING THIS

FOR WHAT IT IS?

IF YOU THINK THIS IS SOME

KIND OF WORKPLACE

VIOLENCE, THINK AGAIN.

WAS THIS MAN RADICALIZED?

I THINK THE ANSWER IS

OBVIOUS, YES.

AND IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT HE

WAS RADICALIZED BEFORE HE

MARRIED.

PART OF ISIS' TRAINING --

THEY ENCOURAGE YOU TO GO

BACK TO THE MIDDLE EAST IN

ORDER TO MARRY.

THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO

MARRY HERE.

AND THAT'S AN OBVIOUS SIGN

THAT HE HAS BEEN

RADICALIZED.

IT'S TOUGH TO THINK THAT

THE ACT OF MARRIAGE IS A

SIGN OF RADICALIZATION,

BUT IN THIS CASE IT WAS.

YOU DON'T HAVE 5,000

ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION IN

YOUR HOME FOR A WORKPLACE

DISPUTE.

THIS IS AN ACT OF

TERRORISM.

YOU DON'T MAKE 12 PIPE

BOMBS.

SO WE NEED TO TAKE THE

BLINDERS OFF.

WE NEED TO START CALLING

THIS FOR WHAT IT IS AND BE

READY TO CALL IT FOR WHAT

IT IS AND INCREASE OUR

AWARENESS.

THERE ARE A LOT OF CALLS

RIGHT NOW FOR INCREASED

GUN CONTROL.

WE NEED TO KEEP IN MIND

CALIFORNIA HAS THE

STRICTEST GUN CONTROL LAWS

IN THE NATION.

AND IN THE FACE OF THOSE

STRICT LAWS, THEY WERE

STILL ABLE TO GET THIS

KIND OF WEAPONRY.

WHAT WE REALLY NEED TO BE

LOOKING AT IS THE TRAVEL

OF PEOPLE, AND ARE WE

ISSUING VISAS TO THE RIGHT

KIND OF PERSON THAT WE

WANT TO HAVE IN YOUR

BACKYARD.

> WELL, WITH THE

INCREASED THREAT OF

TERRORISM, POLICE ARE

RECEIVING SPECIAL

TRAINING.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN NEWS

ROOM.

Efrem: GORDON, GIVEN

THE POSSIBILITY THAT

TERRORISTS CAN NOW STRIKE

ANY TIME AND ANY PLACE,

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS

HERE IN THE U.S. ARE

TAKING STEPS TO GET THE

RIGHT TRAINING TO FIGHT

BACK.

CHUCK HOLTON WENT TO FIND

OUT HOW THEY'RE PREPARING

AT A SPECIAL CAMP IN

LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS.

Reporter: IN THE WAKE

OF CONTINUING TERROR

ATTACKS AROUND THE WORLD,

IT IS CLEAR INTERNATIONAL

TERRORISTS ARE EVOLVING TO

USE EVER-MORE SPECTACULAR

AND BRUTAL TACTICS.

COORDINATED ATTACKS ON

MULTIPLE LOCATIONS CAN

QUICKLY BRING ENTIRE

CITIES TO A STANDSTILL AND

REPRESENT A NIGHTMARE

SCENARIO FOR ANY LAW

ENFORCEMENT AGENCY.

JUST OUTSIDE LITTLE ROCK,

ARKANSAS, LAW ENFORCEMENT

PROFESSIONALS FROM ACROSS

THE COUNTRY COME TO THIS

700-ACRE FACILITY TO FIND

BETTER WAYS TO RESPOND TO

SUCH ATTACKS.

THE DIRECT ACTION RESOURCE

CENTER, KNOWN AS DARCY,

OFFERS A SPECIAL COURSE

SEVERAL TIMES EACH YEAR

FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT.

FORMER GREEN BERET RICH

MASON IS THE FOUNDER.

DARCY WAS STARTED IN

1996, AND IS A WAY FOR

SPECIAL OPERATIONS-TYPE

FORCES, MILITARY, TO GET

UNDERCAMPUS, AWAY FROM THE

FLAG POLE, AND TO REALLY

FOCUS COST-EFFECTIVE

TRAINING.

Reporter: THE LAW

ENFORCEMENT COUNTER

TERRORISM COURSE BRINGS IN

COPS FROM ALL DIFFERENT

AGENCIES, AND THROWS THEM

TOGETHER IN A HYPER,

CHAOTIC SCENARIO FROM DAY

ONE, SHOOTING VERY PLASTIC

BULLETS.

THIS COURSE IS DESIGNED

TO DEFEAT A MULTI-CELL

ATTACK, SIMILAR TO PARIS,

BUT ACTUALLY WORSE IN

SCALE.

Reporter: LIEUTENANT

CHRIS AMPLING IS A

SHERIFF'S DEPARTMEN DEPUTY IN

ARKANSAS.

WHEN YOU HAVE A GUY

ACTIVELY TRYING TO HURT

YOU, AND IT IS NOT FOR

PLAY, YOU PUT A LOT MORE

INTO IT.

YOU TAKE YOUR TIME.

YOUR BREATHING GOES UP.

IT FEELS REAL, IT REALLY

DOES.

THE SCENARIOS KEEP

CHANGING AND GETTING MORE

CHAOTIC THROUGHOUT THE

COURSE, AND THAT IS DONE

ON PURPOSE, TO KEEP THESE

GUYS GUESSING, TO MAKE THE

VALUE OF THE TRAINING EVEN

HIGHER.

EVERYTHING FROM SUICIDE

VESTS TO BEING SHOT AT, IT

IS KIND OF A FULL SPECTRUM

OF VIOLENCE WE'RE ABLE TO

SIMULATE FOR THE FOLKS

THAT COME OUT HERE.

Reporter: AND COPS

ARE LINING UP FOR THE

TRAINING, MANY TAKING

VACATION TIME AND SPENDING

THEIR OWN MONEY TO BE HERE

BECAUSE THEY UNDERSTAND

WHAT IS AT STAKE.

IT HAPPENS HERE IN THE

STATES, AND WE HAVE TO

PREPARE FOR THAT AND BE

READY FOR IT, WHETHER IT

IS ISIS OR HOME-GROWN

TRAINING.

WE'VE GOT TO MAKE THIS

REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE

HAPPEN RIGHT NOW.

WE'VE GOT TO GET THE

TRAINING.

Reporter: WITH THE

NEXT ATTACK LIKELY A

MATTER OF WHEN, NOT IF,

THESE MEN ARE SPENDING

LOTS OF LATE NIGHTS AT

DARCY, MAKING SURE THEY'LL

BE READY.

THE MORE YOU KNOW AND

THE MORE YOU'VE

EXPERIENCED, IT DEFINITELY

GIVES YOU AN EDGE.

Reporter: FROM LITTLE

ROCK, ARKANSAS, I'M CHUCK

HOLTON FOR CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE SENATE HAS

APPROVED A BILL THAT WOULD

REPEAL THE CORE PARTS OF

THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH

CARE LAW.

THE MEASURE WOULD ALSO

DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

THE HOUSE IS CERTAIN TO

APPROVE IT AND SEND IT ON

TO PRESIDENT OBAMA, WHO

HAS ALREADY PROMISED TO

VETO IT.

REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS SAY

IT FULFILLS THEIR PROMISE

AGAINST OBAMACARE MADE IN

THE MID-TERM ELECTIONS

LAST YEAR.

AND THEY SAY IT IS A

MESSAGE TO VOTERS THAT

SENDING A REPUBLICAN TO

THE WHITE HOUSE NEXT YEAR

COULD BE THE END OF

OBAMACARE AND THE END OF

TAXPAYER MONEY FOR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

> ONE OF THE MOST

SIGNIFICANT ARCHEOLOGICAL

FINDS IN YEARS WAS

ANNOUNCED THIS WEEK BY

HEBREW UNIVERSITY.

THE DISCOVERY CONFIRMS THE

RECORD OF THE BIBLE AND

THE LIFE OF ONE OF ANCIENT

ISRAEL'S MOST FAMOUS

KINGS.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

THAT STORY NOW FROM

JERUSALEM.

Chris: IT IS SMALL,

ONLY ONE CENTIMETER WIDE,

BUT IT HAS ALREADY MADE A

BIG IMPACT.

IT IS CALLED ABULLA, AN

ANCIENT SEAL.

WHAT IS SO SIGNIFICANT IS

THE NAME ON THE SEAL.

WE DISCOVERED THE SEAL

IMPRESSION IM PRINTED BY IMPRINTED BY

THE KING HIMSELF, SAYING

THAT IT BELONGS TO

HEZAKIA, KING OF JUDEA.

Chris: THIS

ARCHEOLOGISTS DISCOVERED

THE SEAL DURING ONE OF HER

EXCAVATIONS.

IT WAS THE DISCOVERY OF A

LIFETIME.

ASTONISHED.

THIS WAS -- I THINK THIS

WAS THE MOST AMAZING FIND

FOR ME, PERSONALLY, EVER.

I WAS KIND OF AMAZED.

Chris: SHE AND HER

TEAM DISCOVERED THE ABULLA

IN THIS AREA, BUILT BY

KING SOLOMON AND LOCATED

AT THE SOUTHERN WALL OF

THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

SHE SAYS THE DISCOVERY IS

UNPRECEDENTED.

WE NEVER FOUND IN OUR

ARCHEOLOGICAL EXCAVATIONS,

SUCH A THING THAT IS SO

CLOSE, PRIVATE, TANGIBLE,

TO ANY OF THE JUDEAN KINGS

EVER.

I BELIEVE THIS IS AS CLOSE

AS WE CAN GET TO ANY

BIBLICAL FIGURE, NOT TO

MENTION SUCH A FIGURE AS

KING HEZEKIAH.

Chris: THE BIBLE

DESCRIBES HEZEKIAH IN 2

KINGS, SAYING HE TRUSTED

IN THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL

SO THAT AFTER HIM WAS NONE

LIKE HIM AMONG ALL OF THE

KINGS OF JUDAH, NOR WHO

WERE BEFORE HIM.

SHE SAYS IT WAS KING

HEZEKIAH'S PERSONAL SEAL

FOR CERTAIN DOCUMENTS AND

SAYS THE FIND VALIDATES

THE BIBLE.

THE ARCHEOLOGICAL

EVIDENCE GOES SO

BEAUTIFULLY ALONG WITH THE

BIBLICAL STORY.

IT IS REPEATEDLY SHOWING

US THAT SO MUCH OF THE

BIBLICAL NARRATIVES ARE

ACCURATE.

SIMPLY THAT, ACCURATE.

Chris: THE FIND ALSO

CONNECTS THE JEWISH PEOPLE

TO ANCIENT ISRAEL.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

2,800 YEARS, JUST AS THE

BIBLE SAYS.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

KINGDOM IN JERUSALEM, THE

CAPITAL OF ISRAEL.

AND WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

THE HISTORY OF JERUSALEM

IN SUCH A TANGIBLE,

INDEPENDENT WAY.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: THE BIBLE IS

ALIVE AND REAL, NO DOUBT.

GORDON?

Gordon: KUDOS TO ALAT

MAZAR.

HER AND HER FATHER ARE

LEGENDARY IN ARCHEOLOGY IN

ISRAEL.

WHAT A GREAT FIND.

THE WONDERFUL NEWS IS YOU

CAN GO THERE.

YOU CAN ACTUALLY GO TO

THAT SPOT WHERE THAT SEAL

WAS DISURD.

IDISCOVERED.

IT IS JUST NEAR THE

SOUTHERN STEPS, AND THERE

ARE PASSAGEWAYS THERE, AND

YOU CAN SEE THE ANCIENT

STORAGE JARS OF THE

ISRAELITE KINGS, BUT TO

FIND THE SEAL AND TO FIND

HEZEKIAH'S NAME ON IT IS

TRULY INCREDIBLE.

Wendy: AND IT LOOKS

LIKE IT WAS IN REALLY GOOD

SHAPE.

ALL RIGHT.

> COMING UP, A

CELEBRATION 20 YEARS IN

THE MAKING, AND THE CALL

THAT SET IT ALL IN MOTION.

THE CALL, WHICH WAS

VERY CLEARLY ISSUED IN THE

1990s IN THE

PHILIPPINES, AND I WASN'T

THE ONLY ONE WHO WAS

SAYING, THIS IS THE CALL.

THIS IS A NATIONWIDE CALL.

YOU WILL BE THE GREATEST

MISSIONARY NATION EVER.

Wendy: SEE HOW THIS

CALL HAS PRODUCED HUNDREDS

OF MISSIONARIES IN 60

COUNTRIES AROUND THE

WORLD.

THAT'S NEXT.

Wendy: MOST OF YOU

KNOW GORDON IS THE HOST OF

THIS PROGRAM AND "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE" SHOW, AND AS

THISTHE C.E.O. OF THE

CHRISTIAN BROADCASTING

NETWORK.

20 YEARS AGO, GORDON

RECEIVED A VISION FROM

GOD, WHERE HE SAW

MULTITUDES OF FILIPINO

CHRISTIANS GOING TO THE

ENDS OF THE EARTH AS

MISSIONARIES.

SO HE MOVED HIS FAMILY

THERE TO THE PHILIPPINES

TO START "THE ASIAN CENTER

FOR MISSIONS."

RECENTLY GORDON RETURNED

THERE FOR AN ANNIVERSARY

CELEBRATION, AND OUR

GEORGE THOMAS BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

* THE JOY OF THE LORD

*

George: THE YEAR WAS

1995.

HERE IN A REFUGEE CAMP

ALONG THE TAI BURMESE

BORDER, GORDON ROBERTSON

AND A DOZEN FILIPINO

MISSIONARIES WERE BRINGING

THE GOSPEL TO DISPLACED

REFUGEES.

Gordon: I WANT YOU TO

ASK GOD, WHAT SHOULD I PAY

FOR WITH THIS FAMILY?

OKAY.

Gordon: SO GOD CAN

REVEAL SOMETHING ABOUT HIS

FAMILY, SOMETHING RIGHT

NOW, NOT IN THE FUTURE.

BUT A PRAYER NEED RIGHT

NOW.

George: TALK ABOUT

THAT EXPERIENCE BACK IN

1995, GOING TO THAILAND.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE BEING

THERE?

Gordon: THAT TRIP WAS

PRETTY INCREDIBLE.

> I HAVE A MESSAGE FOR

YOU TODAY.

George: ROBERTSON

SAYS THE TRIP AND THAT

YEAR IN HIS LIFE...

Gordon: BECAUSE I

SENSE THAT YOU'RE

TROUBLED.

George: ...PROVED TO

BE SIGNIFICANT.

Gordon: I WANT TO

IMPART A VISION OF YOU

TODAY OF HOW GOD WANTS TO

USE YOUR PRESENT DISTRESS

FOR THE GLORY OF HIS

KINGDOM.

George: WHILE HE AND

THE FILIPINO MISSIONARIES

CAME TO BRING HOPE...

WE ASK YOUR MERCY FOR

THIS WOMAN, O LORD.

Gordon: RESTORE THE

MUSCLE IN HER RIGHT LEG.

*

George: ...AND

COMFORT TO REFUGEES,

ROBERTSON SAYS IT ALSO

SERVED AS ANOTHER DIVINE

CONFIRMATION OF THE ROLE

THE PHILIPPINES WOULD PLAY

IN WORLD EVANGELISM.

Gordon: HIS CALL,

WHICH WAS VERY CLEARLY

ISSUED IN THE 1990s IN

THE PHILIPPINES, AND I

WASN'T THE ONLY ONE WHO

WAS SAYING.

THIS IS THE

CALL.

THIS IS A NATIONWIDE CALL.

YOU WILL BE THE GREATEST

MISSIONARY NATION EVER.

George: IT WAS 20

YEARS AGO, WHEN GORDON

SAYS HE RECEIVED A VISION

FROM GOD OF BOOTLOADS OF

FILIPINO MISSIONARIES

GOING TO THE ENDS OF THE

EARTH.

Gordon: I THINK THE

FILIPINO PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

UNIQUELY CRAFTED BY HIM

FOR BEING THE VESSELS

CARRYING HIS LOVE AND

RECONCILIATION AROUND THE

WORLD.

George: CONVINCED OF

GOD'S DESIRE, ROBERTSON

MOVED HIS FAMILY TO MANILA

AND STARTED TRAINING

FILIPINOS FOR THE MISSION

FIELD.

A FILIPINO CAN FIT IN

ANYWHERE?

Gordon: THEY CAN GO

ANYWHERE AND FIT IN AND

BLEND IN AND BE PRODUCTIVE

IN THE CONSULT AND

PRODUCTIVE IN SOCIETY.

AND WITH THOSE THEY HAVE A

UNIQUE GIFTING TO BE ABLE

TO CARRY THE MESSAGE OF

GOD'S LOVE.

George: SINCE ITS

BEGINNING, THE ASIAN

CENTER FOR MISSIONS HAS

TRAINED 1700 MISSIONARIES,

INCLUDING 865, NOW SERVING

IN 60 COUNTRIES AROUND THE

WORLD.

I AMAZO I AMAZED, AMAZED AT

WHAT GOD CAN DO WHEN YOU

PUT YOURSELF IN HIS HANDS.

George: THIS HONDURAN

MISSIONARY MET ROBERTSON

IN 1994, AND TOGETHER THEY

CO-FOUNDED A.C.M. A YEAR

LATER.

THE BIBLE IS CLEAR THAT

THE PERSON WHO WINS SOULS

IS A WISE MAN.

I WANT TO BE COUNTED AS

ONE OF THOSE WISE PEOPLE.

George: ROBERTSON

CALLS THE PHILIPPINES HIS

SECOND HEIM.

SECOND HOME.

Gordon: HALLELUJAH.

IT IS GOOD TO BE HOME.

> MY GOAL IS TO TEACH

THEM AS MUCH AS I CAN, ALL

THAT I CAN, AND THEN

RELEASE THEM TO GO OUT AND

ACHIEVE WHAT GOD WANTS

THEM TO DO.

THAT IS FRUIT THAT LASTS,

THAT REMAINS, THAT I'LL

REJOICE OVER IN HEAVEN.

George: DANNY SAYS

BECAUSE OF ROBERTSON'S

OBEDIENCE TO START

A.C.M....

I BECAME A MISSIONARY,

TO ANSWER GOD'S CALL TO

THE NATION.

George: 17 YEARS AGO,

HE MOVED HIS FAMILY FROM

THE PHILIPPINES TO SERVE

IN THE MUSLIM-MAJORITY

AFRICAN NATION OF BEKINO

ASO.

HE HISTORY HELPED PLANT 10

CHURCHES.

AND HE FOCUSES ON

SO-CALLED UNREACHED PEOPLE

GROUPS.

MANY PASTORS WHO ARE

FORMERLY MUSLIMS, THEY

HAVE TESTIFIED THAT THEY

HAVE DREMPT OF SEEING

JESUS IN THEIR DREAMS, AND

THAT'S HOW THEY BECAME

BELIEVERS.

George: ARE YOU

LIVING YOUR DREAM?

YES!

BY GOD'S GRACE.

George: HE PASTORED A

SMALL CHURCH IN 1995, AND

THEN ONE WEEKEND HE HEARD

ROBERTSON GIVE A MESSAGE

THAT CHANGED HIS LIFE

FOREVER.

I WENT INTO THE MISSION

FIELD.

IT IS GOD WHO HAS PASSION

AND HEART TO YOUR SOULS.

George: ON A RECENT

WEEKEND...

LET'S WELCOME THEM.

George: ...HE JOINED

HUNDREDS FOR THE 20th

ANNIVERSARY OF THE ASH

CENTER FOR MISSIONS.

Gordon: THERE IS THE

MIRACLE OF ITS BIRTH IN

THE FIRST PLACE, AND THEN

THE MIRACLE OF HOW GOD

SUSTAINED IT THROUGH THE

EARLY YEARS, AND HOW HE

STILL SUSTAINS IT TODAY.

ROBERTSON IS IN GOD'S

KINGDOM, PRESENTING THE

NATIONS OF THE WORLD.

George: 20 YEARS

LATER, OVER 600

MISSIONARIES IN THE FIELD,

AND THIS IS JUST THE

BEGINNING, RIGHT?

Gordon: I STILL THINK

WE'RE AT THE BEGINNING OF

IT.

MY DREAM IS FOR EVERY

OVERSEAS FILIPINO TO GET

CHARGED WITH "I CAN BE A

MISSIONARY."

WHEN THAT HAPPENS, THAT'S

WHEN THAT DREAM COMES

TRUE.

YOU KNOW, 600 MAY BE A

SMALL CRUISE SHIP.

I SAW BOATLOADS, AND SO

I'M HOLDING ON TO THAT

PROMISE.

AND WE'RE JUST AT THE

BEGINNING STAGES OF IT.

*

* AMAZING GRACE

George: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS, MANILA,

THE PHILIPPINES.

Wendy: WHAT DID IT

FEEL LIKE TO WATCH

YOURSELF 20 YEARS AGO,

STANDING THERE.

Gordon: IT HAS BEEN

AN AMAZING JOURNEY.

I WAS THERE FOR THE

ANNIVERSARY BACK IN

OCTOBER.

YOU JUST HAVE THIS

WONDERFUL FELLOWSHIP WITH

PEOPLE THAT YOU'VE KNOWN

FOR DECADES, WHO HAVE

SUCCESS FIEFDSACRIFICED AND GIVEN THEIR

LIVES.

WHETHER IT IS DANNY AND

RUBY GOING TO FASINO, OR

GOING TO ASIA -- THEY GO

TO THE VERY HARDEST

PLACES.

THAT TRIP IN 1995, THAT

WAS A REFUGEE CAMP OF

KOKOINIKORINI, AND THEY WERE JUST

TRYING TO SUBSIST.

THEY WERE A CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY, AND WE WERE

PROVIDING SOME ENGLISH

TEACHERS FOR THEM.

IN THE COURSE OF THAT, I

GOT CEREBRAL MALARIA ON

THAT TRIP.

SO THAT NEARLY KILLED ME.

BUT YOU GO THROUGH THE

MEMORIES ABOUT THE

HARDSHIHARDSHIP AND THE JOY.

AND YOU HAVE FELLOWSHIP

AND SUFFERING, BUT YOU

ALSO HAVE FELLOWSHIP AND

THE FRUIT THAT REMAINS,

THE JOY THAT IS THERE.

Wendy: THE

PHILIPPINES IS SO MUCH A

PART OF YOUR HEART.

AND MY TWO FAVORITE

TRIPS -- INTERNATIONAL

TRIPS SINCE I'VE BEEN AT

CBN, HAVE BEEN BOTH OF MY

TRIPS TO THE PHILIPPINES.

Gordon: SO IT WASN'T

ISRAEL?

Wendy: NO.

BUT ISRAEL IS IN THE TOP

FIVE.

BUT THERE IS SOMETHING

ABOUT IT, AND THE PEOPLE.

AND THEY ARE UNIQUELY

QUALIFIED TO BLEND IN AND

TAKE THE GOSPEL AROUND THE

WORLD.

Gordon: MAYBE ONE DAY

I CAN MOVE BACK AND BE IN

MY SECOND HOME.

Wendy: BECAUSE YOU

WANT TO WEAR HAWAIIAN

SHIRTS TO WORK.

Gordon: YEAH.

IT IS A LITTLE MORE

RELAXED THERE.

THE PEOPLE ARE WONDERFUL.

IF YOU EVER GET A CHANCE

TO GO TO THE PHILIPPINES,

YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY ENJOY

IT.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

UP NEXT, A CAR ACCIDENT

LEAVES A MAN IN CONSTANT

PAIN.

SHOOTING PAINS WENT

INTO MY HIP.

I STARTED GOING TO THE

CHIROPRACTOR AND DOING

PAIN MEDICINE.

Wendy: WATCH HOW HE

WAS HEALED IN AN INSTANT

AFTER DECADES OF PAIN.

> PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING

FOR YOU AND YOUR NEEDS, SO

STAY WITH US.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

CBN PARTNERS, PLEASE WATCH

YOUR MAIL FOR THIS SPECIAL

HOLIDAY LETTER.

IT CONTAINS TWO BEAUTIFUL

"GOD WITH US" ORNAMENTS.

ONE IS FOR YOU TO WRITE

GORDON?

Gordon: OKAY.

THEY ARE COOL.

HAVE YOU FILLED IN YOURS?

Wendy: I HAVE NOT,

BUT I NEED TO BECAUSE I

WANT TO BE PRAYED FOR.

Gordon: WHAT IS YOUR

TOP PRAYER REQUEST?

Wendy: YOU KNOW WHAT

IT IS.

IT DOESN'T CHANGE.

I WANT A BIG DIAMOND ON

THIS FINGER, RIGHT HERE.

CAN YOU PRAY OVER ME.

Gordon: I HAVE BEEN

PRAYING OVER YOU.

Wendy: I KNOW.

GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

MAYBE YOU CAN FILL OUT A

CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT FOR

WENDY AS WELL.

> ALL RIGHT, BACK IN

1985, DAVID WAMSLEY WAS IN

A CONSIDER ACCIDENT.

FROM THEN ON HE THOUGHT

ABOUT HIS INJURIES EVERY

MINUTE OF EVERY DAY.

AND WITH EACH PASSING

YEAR, HIS PAIN GOT

PROGRESSIVELY WORSE, UNTIL

LAST MAY, WHEN DAVID WAS

SUDDENLY HEALED IN AN

INSTANT.

A PICKUP TRUCK PULLED

OUT IN FRONT OF ME, A '69

FORD PICKUP TRUCK, AND I

WAS DRIVING AN '81 DATSUN.

IT JUST FOLDED MY CAR UP.

MY HEAD WENT THROUGH THE

WINDSHIELD.

I DIDN'T REALIZE MY BACK

WAS HURT UNTIL ABOUT SIX

MONTHS LATER, JUST

SHOOTING PAIN INTO MY

HIPS.

I HAD TO START GOING TO

THE CHIROPRACTOR, AND I

STARTED DOING PAIN

MEDICINE.

IT WAS HARD TO GET

COMFORTABLE, LAYING DOWN

TO SLEEP AT NIGHT.

WORK WAS SOMETHING YOU HAD

TO DO.

YOU JUST BE CAREFUL THE

WAY YOU BEND OVER AND THE

WAY YOU LIFT.

JOYCE, MY WIFE, GOT ME

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB"

FOR THE LAST SEVERAL

YEARS.

IT WAS GORDON AND TERRY

THAT WERE ON THAT MORNING,

ON A FRIDAY MORNING.

AND THEY WERE STARTING TO

PRAY FOR PEOPLE.

SO I PUT MY HANDS ON MY

BACK AND I PRAYED WITH

THEM.

Gordon: THERE IS A

MAN, YOU'RE LAYING YOUR

HAND ON THE LOWER PART OF

YOUR LEFT BACK.

AND YOU'VE BEEN IN

CONSTANT PAIN.

YOU HAVE A SLIPPED DISC,

AND YOU'RE WONDERING, HOW

CAN I EVER BE RELEASED

FROM THIS?

GOD HAS JUST RELEASED YOU

FROM IT.

ANTHE PAIN HAS LEFT YOU NOW.

JUST PRAISE GOD FOR IT.

IT WASN'T ACHING

ANYMORE.

SATURDAY, THE NEXT

MORNING, I WOKE UP AND I

SLEPT GOOD THAT NIGHT WITH

NO PAIN.

I WOKE UP THE NEXT MORNING

AND IT DIDN'T HURT.

ABOUT NOON ON SATURDAY, I

FOUND OUT I WAS ADDICTED

TO PAINKILLERS.

I NEVER NOTICED IT BEFORE

BECAUSE I NEEDED THEM.

BUT I DIDN'T NEED THEM

ANYMORE, AND I WAS SO EDGY

WITHOUT THEM.

I HAD TO START TAKING THEM

AGAIN, NOT FOR THE PAIN,

BUT FOR THE ADDICTION.

SUNDAY MORNING I CALLED

"THE 700 CLUB" AND TOLD

THEM WHAT THEY HELPED ME

DO WITH MY BACK.

THE LADY -- I DIDN'T GET

HER NAME.

BUT SHE WAS SO EXCITED FOR

ME.

I TOLD HER I NEEDED HER TO

PRAY FOR ME TO HELP ME

WITH THE PAINKILLERS.

AND SHE TOLD ME, DON'T YOU

WORRY ABOUT IT.

THIS IS EASY.

GOD SENT HIS SON TO DIE

FOR YOU.

YOU JUST HAVE TO GET OFF

THESE PAINKILLERS.

SHE WAS JUST SO CONFIDENT

AND SO SURE AND MADE ME

BELIEVE THAT, IN FACT, IT

WAS GOING TO BE EASY, AND

IT WAS.

I NEVER TOOK ONE SINCE

THAT.

I DIDN'T NEED IT.

MY EDGYNESS WENT AWAY.

IT HAS BEEN WONDERFUL.

WONDERFUL.

Gordon: GOD SENT THIS

SON TO DIE FOR YOU.

AND IT IS GOING TO BE

EASY.

LET THAT WORD SINK DEEP

WITHIN YOU.

LET IT RESOLVE ALL OF THE

ISSUES.

AND COME TO KNOW THAT THE

SAME RESURRECTION POWER

THAT RAISED JESUS FROM THE

DEAD CAN BE YOURS, CAN BE

YOURS TODAY.

NOT SOME FAR OFF TIME.

NOT SOME TIME IN HEAVEN,

BUT GOD WANTS HIS WILL TO

BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS

IN HEAVEN.

THAT'S HIS WILL.

WE KNOW IT.

JESUS TAUGHT US THIS IS

THE WAY TO PRAY, THAT

GOD'S WILL WILL BE DONE ON

EARTH.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOUR NEEDS.

BEFORE WHERE PRAY, WE'VE

GOT SOME OF THE ORNAMENT

PRAYER REQUESTS THAT HAVE

COME IN.

DELIVERANCE FROM ALCOHOL

DEPENDENCY.

SOMEONE ELSE NEEDS HEALING

AFTER A STROKE.

A FRIEND TO BE DELIVERED

FROM A SPIRIT OF SUICIDE.

AND THEN HEALING OF

BROKENNESS IN OUR

MARRIAGE.

WENDY, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Wendy: THIS IS

HEALING OF FAMILY

HEARTACHE AND COMFORT TO

THOSE WHO FEEL ABANDONED

BY GOD.

THIS ONE, A FINANCIAL

BREAKTHROUGH FOR OUR

ENTIRE FAMILY.

AND FOR MY HUSBAND TO FIND

A JOB.

A LOT OF PEOPLE NEEDING

JOBS RIGHT NOW.

Gordon: LET'S PRAY.

JOIN WITH US IN PRAYER,

AND REALIZE GOD WANTS TO

MAKE IT EASY.

HE WANTS TO MAKE IT EASY

FOR HIS CHILDREN.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO MAKE IT

DIFFICULT FOR YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE.

FAITH IS AN ACT.

SO IF YOU'RE HURTING IN

YOUR BODY RIGHT NOW, IN AN

ACT OF FAITH, LAY YOUR

HAND ON THAT AREA THAT

NEEDS HEALING.

DAVID DID THAT AND HE GOT

HEALING.

JUST LAY YOUR HAND ON

ITMENIT.AND WENDY AND I ARE GOING

TO BELIEVE.

DON'T LOOK AT THE

GREATNESS OF THE PROBLEM.

LOOK AT THE GREATNESS OF

GOD AND WHAT HE HAS DONE,

HOW HE SENT JESUS TO DIE

FOR US TO TAKE ALL OF THIS

AWAY SO THAT WE CAN HAVE

RIGHTEOUSNESS, HEALING,

AND JOY.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE LIFT THESE PRAYER

REQUESTS TO YOU KNOW AND

WE JUST INTERCEDE ON THEIR

BEHALF.

THE HEART CRY FOR THE

FRIEND WHO IS FACING A

SPIRIT OF SUICIDE, THAT

WANTS TO END EVERYTHING.

FOR THOSE WHO NEED HEALING

PAPER

WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

DEFENSE SECRETARY ASH

CARTER IS ORDERING THE

U.S. MILITARY TO OPEN ALL

COMBAT JOBS TO WOMEN,

DISMISSING REQUESTS FROM

THE MARINE CORPS TO

EXCLUDE WOMEN FROM CERTAIN

FRONTLINE COMBAT

ACTIVITIES.

THERE WILL BE NO

EXCEPTIONS.

THIS MEANS THAT AS LONG AS

THEY QUALIFY AND MEET THE

STANDARDS, WOMEN WILL NOW

BE ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE TO

OUR MISSION IN WAYS THEY

COULD NOT BEFORE.

Efrem: THE CHANGE

MEANS WOMEN WILL NOW BE

ALLOWED TO SERVE IN THE

MILITARY'S MOST GRUELING

AND DIFFICULT JOBS,

INCLUDING SPECIAL

OPERATIONS FORCES SUCH AS

THE ARMY DELTA UNIT AND

NAVY SEALS.

ALL BRANCHES OF THE

MILITARY HAVE UNTIL

JANUARY 1st TO SUBMIT

PLANS TO MAKE THE CHANGE.

> "OPERATION BLESSING"

IS PROVIDING HOPE FOR A

YOUNG MOTHER STRUGGLING TO

FEED HER SON.

LIZZY IS A SINGLE MOTHER

FROM LOUISIANA.

SHE WAS STRUGGLING TO MAKE

ENDS MEET AND PUT FOOD ON

THE TABLE FOR HER

10-YEAR-OLD SON, ETHAN.

SHE TURNED TO A SINGLE

MOMS' MINISTRY SUPPORTED

BY "OPERATION BLESSING,"

WHERE SHE FOUND FOOD AND

ENCOURAGEMENT.

LIZZIE SAYS SHE IS

EXTREMELY GRATEFUL FOR THE

SOURCE OF HOPE AND HELP IT

HAS BEEN FOR HER AS SHE

RAISES ETHAN.

SHE NOW VOLUNTEERS TO

SHARE HER STORY AND TO

HELP OTHER CHURCHES TO

BEGIN SINGLE MOMS GROUPS.

GORDON AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB".

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK" AIRS IN 75

COUNTRIES AROUND THE

WORLD.

AND IT'S ALSO INTRODUCING

THE PLAN OF SALVATION TO A

WHOLE NEW GENERATION OF

CHILDREN RIGHT HERE IN

AMERICA.

Reporter: IN 2009?

A. THE CB2009"SUPERBOOK" WAS RELEASED

WITH A NEW LOOK AND A

GREAT NEW STORY LINE.

GRACIE SMITH WAS ONE OF

THE FIRST ONES TO SEE IT.

HER AUNT IS A PRODUCER FOR

THE "700 CLUB," AND WAS

ASSIGNED TO DO THE

PREMIER.

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

MOVIE, I SAW HOW BRAVE

DAVID WAS, AND I LEARNED

TO ALWAYS BE FAITHFUL AND

BRAVE.

Reporter: AFTER THE

PREMIERE, BOTH GRACIE AND

AUDRA WERE "SUPERBOOK"

FANS.

I WAS REALLY IMPRESSED

WITH THE QUALITY OF THE

ANIMATION, AND ALSO JUST

THE INTEGRITY IN WHICH

THEY WERE SHARING THESE

BIBLE STORIES.

BUT I COME TO YOU IN

THE NAME OF THE LORD OF

HOPE.

"SUPERBOOK" TAKES THEM

ON FUN ADVENTURES, AND

THEY TAKE THEM IN THE

PAST, LIKE THE BATTLE OF

THE WALLS OF JERICHO.

AND THEY WATCHED JESUS DO

MIRACLES, WALKING ON

WATER.

Reporter: AUDRA

EVENTUALLY JOINED THE

"SUPERBOOK" CLUB SO SHE

COULD KEEP SHARING THE

BIBLE STORIES WITH GRACIE.

"SUPERBOOK" CLUB IS

AMAZING FOR A COUPLE OF

DIFFERENT REASONS.

FIRST OF ALL, I GET A NEW

UPDATED "SUPERBOOK" EVERY

TIME THEY MAKE ONE.

AND THE SECOND THING IS I

GET THREE COPIES.

SO NOT ONLY DO I SEND ONE

TO GRACIE, BUT AS OUR

FAMILY HAS GROWN, EICH

BEEI'VEBEEN ABLE TO SEND THEM TO

MY YOUNGER BROTHER'S

CHILDREN AND SAVE ONE FOR

MY OWN CHILDREN.

SHE SENDS ME

"SUPERBOOK" FOR EASTER,

BIRTHDAYS, AND CHRISTMAS.

ONE DAY AFTER SUNDAY

SCHOOL, HER SUNDAY SCHOOL

TEACHER STOPPED ME AND

ASKED ME HOW COME SHE

KNOWS SO MUCH ABOUT GOD?

I HAVE TO GIVE "SUPERBOOK"

THE GROUP.

IT PLANTS THE WORD OF GOD.

ONE OF THE MOST

EXCITING THINGS FOR ME WAS

WHEN GRACIE STARTED TO

SING THE SALVATION SONG

SUNG AT THE END OF EVERY

D.V.D.

* JESUS, YOU DIED UPON THE

CROSS, AND ROSE AGAIN TO

SAVE THE LOST *

AND SHE STARTED ASKING

ME WHAT IT MEANT FOR JESUS

TO DIE AND SAVE US.

SO IT OPENED UP THE

CONVERSATION TO TALK ABOUT

THE PLAN OF SALVATION.

Reporter: ON NEW

YEAR'S DAY, 2013, GRACIE

GAVE HER HEART TO JESUS

AND WAS LATER BAPTIZED.

I DECIDED TO FOLLOW HIM

AND BE A DISCIPLE OF HIS.

I LOVE GOD VERY MUCH, AND

I WANTED HIM TO BE MY

SAVIOR IN MY LIFE.

I'M JUST AMAZED WHEN I

LOOK AT THE FRUIT I'VE

SEEN IN MY ENTIRE FAMILY'S

LIFE.

AND THESE CARTOONS THAT

WE'RE GETTING ON A MONTHLY

BASIS, I KNOW THEY'RE

HAVING AN ETERNAL IMPACT

ON MY FAMILY.

I'M JUST SO GRATEFUL FOR

THAT.

Gordon: AND YOU CAN

HAVE THE SAME THING.

HOW?

"SUPERBOOK" D.V.D.

WENDY?

Wendy: UP NEXT, WE

TAKE YOU TO THE ICE WITH

THIS FUTURE HALL-OF-FAMER.

EACH GOAL, EACH WIN, GOING

TO DIFFERENT BUILDINGS,

AND THE RIVALRY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

EACH WIN, GOING TO

DIFFERENT BUILDING, THE

RIVALRIES, THE

EXCITEMENT -- I'VE BEEN

VERY BLESSED TO PLAY AS

LONG AS I HAVE.

AND IT HAS GONE BY FAST.

Wendy: WELL, JUST

ABOUT EVERYBODY LOVES

CHRISTMAS COOKIES, AND

CURRENTLY WE HAVE A

CHRISTMAS COOKIE CONTEST

POSTED ON OUR Facebook

PAGE.

TO ENTER, ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO IS GO TO

Facebook.GOFacebook.COM/"700 CLUB"

AND SUBMIT YOUR RECIPE.

AND WE'LL ANNOUNCE THE

WINNING RECIPE RIGHT HERE

ON "700 CLUB."

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE

COOCOOKIE?

Gordon: KATHRYN MAKES

THESE WONDERFUL CHOCOLATE

CHIPS, AND SHE USES A

SPECIAL BROWN SUGAR FOR IT

AND THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY

GOOEY AND WONDERFUL.

IT'S ONE OF MANY REASONS

THAT I'M AS LARGE AS I AM.

I NEED TO STAY AWAY FROM

THE COOKIES.

Wendy: IT'S

CHRISTMAS.

WE HAVE TO LIVE A LITTLE.

Gordon: I'VE LIVED A

LOT.

> 597 GOALS AND

COUNTING, AND THAT MAKES

JEROME ONE OF THE HOCKEY'S

ALL TIME ELITE SCORERS.

HE IS ALSO THE SON OF A

BUDDHIST MOTHER AND A

FORMER MUSLIM FATHER.

THAT MAKES FOR AN

INTERESTING FAITH JOURNEY.

WE TALKED WITH JEROME

ABOUT HIS EXCEPTIONAL

CAREER AND HIS PERSONAL

FAITH.

Reporter: IT IS THE

FASTEST MOVING GAME.

IT IS A VERY QUICK

GAME, HOCKEY.

THINGS HAPPEN, BANG, BANG.

IF YOU'RE SECOND-GUESSING,

YOU START TO MISS PASSES.

Reporter: IT IS

UNDERSTANDING THAT JAROME

IGINLA HARDLY HAS TIME TO

PROCESS THE HISTORIC MARK

HE WILL LEAVE WHEN HE

STOPS PLAYING.

IT HAS GONE BY FAST.

Reporter: HE IS ON A

FAST-TRACK FOR A HALL OF

FAME CAREER.

ONLY 18 OTHER NHL PLAYERS

HAVE SCORED MORE THAN

JAROME IGINLA.

ARE YOU ABLE TO RELISH IT?

ARE YOU STARTING TO SAVOR

IT?

I AM STARTING TO SAVOR

IT, EACH GOAL, EACH WIN,

GOING TO THE DIFFERENT

BUILDING, THE RIVALRY.

I TRY TO CATCH MYSELF IN

THE WARMUPS, WHEN YOU'RE

ON THE LINE, AND THESE

MILESTONES -- IT'S SUCH A

NEAT EXPERIENCE.

I REALIZE IT IS NOT GOING

TO LAST FOREVER.

Reporter: AS THE

FINISH LINE APPROACHES,

HIS CAREER IS DEFINED

AS...

A COMPETITOR.

ONCE I GET ON THE ICE AND

GET IN THE GAME, I LOVE

COMPETING.

I LOVE TO BE OUT THERE AND

YOU'RE ALONGSIDE YOUR

TEAMMATES, AND WE ALL HAVE

THE SAME GOAL.

Reporter: STATISTICS

ASIDE, JAROME MAINTAINS

THE RARE COMBINATION OF

CONSISTENCY AND

EXCELLENCE.

HE CAN CERTAINLY LEAVE

A GREAT LEGACY TO OUR

TEAM.

OUR PLAYERS CAN LEARN A

LOT FROM HIM.

THEY WILL ONE DAY SAY, YOU

KNOW WHAT, HE IS A SPECIAL

PLAYER.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

THINK ARE THE REQUIREMENTS

TO BE EXCELLENT?

IT'S ABOUT WORKING

HARD.

IT IS PREPARATION.

I TRY TO GIVE MYSELF THE

BEST CHANCE.

I BELIEVE IN GOD.

I STAY CLOSE AND PRAY

DAILY.

I HAVE TO PRAY, BELIEVE,

AND DO THE WORK.

ONCE I GO ON THE ICE, I DO

THE BEST I CAN, AND

BELIEVE IT.

Reporter: AFTER

SPENDING HIS FIRST 15

SEASONS WITH THE CALGARY

FLAMES, JAROME LEARNED TO

ADJUST TO TRANSITION AND

NEW TEAMS OVER THE PAST

TWO AND A HALF YEARS.

WITH BRIEF RUNS IN

PITTSBURGH, BOSTON, AND

NOW DENVER.

I FEEL THAT I GREW, THE

FIRST TIME LEAVING TO A

NEW TEAM, HAVING TO BE THE

NEW GUY.

BUT I GOT TO SEE THE OTHER

SIDE OF IT, HOW A GUY

FEELS WHEN THEY GET

TRADED.

SO I FEEL LIKE I'VE GOT TO

LEARN A LOT.

MY FAMILY AND I ARE WHERE

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE.

AND NOW BEING HERE IN

COLORADO WITH A YOUNG

GROUP, AND THE GOAL IS TO

WIN, BUT IT HAS BEEN FUN.

I THINK GOD DOES HAVE A

PLAN.

Reporter: JAROME IS A

RARE PLAYER, A HOCKEY

ICON, WHO'S HALL OF FAME

INDUCTION ONLY WAITS.

UNTIL THEN, THE MAN

CHOOSES TO LIVE IN THE

EVER PRESENT MOMENT WITH

HIS FAITH AS SOLID AS THE

ICE THAT HE SKATES ON.

A LEGACY OR THINGS LIKE

THAT -- I'VE NEVER REALLY

BEEN A BIG THINKER IN THAT

WAY.

IT HAS KIND OF JUST BEEN

TRYING TO GO EACH DAY.

I DON'T REALLY TRY TO

THINK WHAT AM I GOING TO

LEAVE BEHIND AS IT IS JUST

TRY TO DO THE BEST WE CAN

TODAY AND ENJOY IT, AND TO

BE JOYFUL AND EXPERIENCE

THAT.

Reporter: WHO IS

JESUS CHRIST TO YOU?

WHO HAS HE BEEN FOR YOU?

I BELIEVE HE LIVED

2,000 YEARS AGO, AND I

BELIEVE HE DIED FOR US.

I BELIEVE HE IS THERE FOR

US AND WE CAN LEAN ON HIM.

AND I DO.

Reporter: JAROME'S

RELIANCE THROUGH FAITH

BEGAN AS A TEEN, WHILE

SEARCHING FOR SPIRITUAL

ASSURANCE.

MY MOM IS A BUDDHIST,

AND MY DAD IS A CHRISTIAN,

BUT HE WAS A MUSLIM.

ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS

WERE ROOMING TOGETHER, AND

HE WAS LIKE, DO YOU

BELIEVE THERE IS A GOD?

AND I WAS, LIKE, YEAH.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, WHAT IF

WHEN YOU DIE THAT'S JUST

IT?

FOR WHATEVER REASON, IT

GOT ME.

IT JUST BOTHERED ME.

I REMEMBER TALKING TO MY

DAD ONCE AND HE EXPLAINED

ME.

AND HE SAID, WHY DON'T YOU

ASK JESUS TO ANSWER THAT

TO YOU.

IF YOU ASK HIM TO COME

INTO YOUR LIFE AND GIVE

YOU PEACE WITH THAT

QUESTION, IF HE GIVES IT

TO YOU, YOU'VE GAINED

EVERYTHING.

AND IF HE DOESN'T, WHAT

HAVE YOU LOST.

I DID THAT AND I HAD

PEACE.

Reporter: IN A

PROFESSION MEASURED BY NUM

NUMERICAL ACHIEVEMENTS,

LEAVE IT TO JAROME IGINLA

TO LEAVE ACCOLADES.

LIFE IS GOING SO FAST.

WHAT GIVES ME COMFORT IS

THAT IS ALL RIGHT.

I HOPE I DON'T LOOK BACK

AND SAYING WHEN I WAS IN

THE NHL THAT WAS THE

PEACE.

THAT'S PART OF THE TRUST.

I'M GOING TO DO MY BEST.

AND AT THE END OF THE DAY,

THAT WILL HAVE TO BE GOOD

ENOUGH, AND GOD HAS BEEN

GOOD TO ME.

AND IT'S BEEN THE TIME OF

MY LIFE.

HEAVEN IS GOING TO BE EVEN

BETTER.

ONE DAY IT WILL BE EVEN

GREATER.

Gordon: WHAT A

WONDERFUL STORY, AND WHAT

A WONDERFUL PRAYER.

JESUS, IF YOU'RE THERE, IF

YOU CAME FOR ME, IF YOU

COULD BE MY SAVIOR, IF YOU

COULD GIVE ME PEACE, COULD

YOU SHOW ME.

COULD YOU SHOW UP FOR ME?

THAT'S A GREAT PRAYER, AND

I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO

PRAY IT.

HE WILL SHOW UP FOR YOU.

HE IS THE SAVIOR OF THE

WORLD.

WHICH MEANS HE IS YOUR

SAVIOR.

AND HE WANTS TO SHOW YOU

HOW MUCH HE LOVES YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

PRAY.

IF YOU NEED HELP WITH THIS

PRAYER, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO

IS CALL US.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU:

1-800-759-0700.

WE'VE GOT A COUPLE OF

MINUTES FOR SOME E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

Wendy: THIS IS SORT

OF AN ESSAY, SO YOU'VE GOT

TO STAY WITH ME.

MARIO WRITES, "WITH THE

TENSION IN THE MIDDLE EAST

AND THE OBVIOUS HATRED THE

ARAB WORLD AS FOR ISRAEL,

CAN'T YOU EN ADVIS ENVISION A

SERIES OF VENT EVENTS THAT

WOULD LEAD TO ARMAGEDDON.

IRAQ AND SAUDI ARABIA

DECIDES TO HIT ISRAEL.

AND THEN RUSSIA LAUNCHES

NUCLEAR WARHEADS AT THE

U.S., RESULTING IN A

NUCLEAR ARMAGEDDON AND THE

END. U.S. AS WE KNOW IT.

MY QUESTION IS: IF SUCH A

SCENARIO OF EVENTS OCCUR,

WHY MAINTAIN SUCH AN

UNCOMPROMISING COMMITMENT

TO ISRAEL?"

Gordon: THOSE EVENTS

CAN OCCUR BECAUSE THE U.S.

DOESN'T HAVE A DEFENSE

TREATY WITH ISRAEL.

AND THAT HAS BEEN PROVEN

THROUGH HISTORY.

BOTH THE FIRST ARAB WAR

AGAINST ISRAEL IN 1948,

AND THE SECOND ONE IN

1967, AND THEN THE THIRD

ONE IN 1973.

AND ALL OF THE INTIFADAS

SINCE.

SO TO SAY IF THERE IS A

NUCLEAR WEAPON LAUNCHED

AGAINST ISRAEL THE UNITED

STATES WOULD RESPOND IN

KIND, I JUST DON'T FIND

IT.

HERE IS WHY WE DEFEND

ISRAEL: GOD TELLS US TO.

AND HE SAYS, I WILL BLESS

THOSE WHO BLESS YOU.

HE SAYS, PRAY FOR THE

PEACE OF JERUSALEM.

SO AS CHRISTIANS, LET US

DO THAT.

> WELL, WE'VE GOT TIME

FOR ONE MORE QUESTION.

SO, WENDY, WHAT'S YOUR

IDEAL GUY?

WHO ARE YOU PRAYING FOR?

Wendy: WELL, YOU

KNOW --

Gordon: HE'S GOT TO

HAVE A JOB.

Wendy: IT WOULD BE

NICE IF HE HAS A JOB.

Gordon: EARNING A BIG

SALARY?

Wendy: THAT'S NOT

BAD.

Gordon: AND YOU WANT

HIM TO CLIMB MOUNTAINS

WITH YOU?

Wendy: I'M

SPEECHLESS.

HE LOVES JESUS IS NUMBER

ONE.

Gordon: IF YOU LOOK

LIKE ME AND CONTINUE

EATING COOKIES, DON'T

APPLY.

"I WILL POUR OUT MY

SPIRIT ON ALL FLESH, AND

YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS

SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR

YOUNG MEN SHALL DREAM

DREAMS, AND YOUR YOUNG MEN

WILL SEE VISIONS."
