Author and childhood burn survivor John O’Leary discusses being an overcomer. Plus, Melanie is called out by name on national television for a miracle healing. Read Transcript


IT IS AMAZING TO SEE.

THE REVOLUTIONARY NEW

WAY TO FIGHT CANCER.

I HAVEN'T EXPERIENCED

ANY OF THOSE SIDE EFFECTS.

AND IT ONLY TAKES A

COUPLE HOURS.

AND THEN THE TREATMENT

IS DONE.

Wendy: AND THEN...ONE

MAN RISES FROM THE ASHES.

PLUS...A BAD FOOT.

I WENT DOWN IN NO TIME

FLAT.

Wendy: ...AND A

BUSTED HIP.

I WAS SEEING STARS.

Wendy: NOW SEE HER

STAND TALL ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

IT'S JUST AWESOME.

IT'S AWESOME.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

BOY, DO WE MISS ANTONIN

SCALIA.

HE DIED UNEXPECTANTLY AND

LEFT A 4 TO 4 VOTE IN THE

SUPREME COURT, AND LO AND

BEHOLD, THEY HAVE

CONFIRMED COURT RULINGS

THAT THEY WERE GOING TO

OVER TURN WITH 5 TO 4.

IT IS GOING TO BE A MESS.

IT SHOWS WHY WE SHOULDN'T

BE IN ANY HURRY TO RUBBER

STAMP THE PRESIDENT ON HIS

PICK FOR THE NEXT SUPREME

COURT JUSTICE.

ONE OF THE MOST UNUSUAL

PRESIDENTIAL RACES IN

HISTORY IS GETTING EVEN

STRANGER.

DONALD TRUMP IS DEFENDING

HIS CAMPAIGN MANAGER

AGAINST A CHARGE THAT HE

GRABBED A FEMALE REPORTER.

THE FEMALE REPORTER RUSHED

THE CANDIDATE.

WHERE WERE THE SECRET

SERVICE PEOPLE WHO WERE

SUPPOSED TO DEFEND HIM?

SHE COULD HAVE HAD A

KNIFE, SHE COULD HAVE HAD

A BOMB, BUT SECRET SERVICE

DID NOTHING, AND NOW THE

AIDE IS BEING SUED.

AND A JUDGE HAS RAISED

MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT

HILLARY CLINTON'S E-MAILS.

WENDY?

Wendy: CLINTON COULD

FACE A STIFF CHALLENGE

FROM BERNIE SANDERS IN NEW

YORK, WHILE TRUMP IS

BACKING OFF FROM HIS

PROMISE TO SUPPORT THE

REPUBLICAN NOMINEE FOR

PRESIDENT.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Efrem: REPUBLICAN

FRONT-RUNNER DONALD TRUMP

IS DEFENDING HIS CAMPAIGN

MANAGER, COREY

LEWANDOWSKI.

THIS VIDEO FROM A TRUMP

RALLY SHOWS TRUMP WITH

MICHELLE FIELDS BY HER

SIDE.

COREY LEWANDOWSKI GRABS

HER ARM, PULLING HER BACK.

TRUMP CALLS THE CHARGE

UNFAIR AND SAYS HE WILL

CONTINUE AS HIS CAMPAIGN

MANAGER.

YES, HE WILL.

I LOOKED AT MY TAPE.

I HAVE GREAT SECURITY AND

GREAT SECURITY CAMERAS.

FRANKLY, IF YOU LOOK AT

THAT -- PEOPLE HAVE LOOKED

AT IT -- IN FACT, I JUST

LEFT ANOTHER AREA OF

WISCONSIN.

WE HAD A WHOLE BIG MEDIA

WITH A BIG GROUP OF

PEOPLE, TREMENDOUS

AUDIENCE, AND THEY'RE ALL

SHAKING THEIR HEADS, GIVE

ME A BREAK.

Efrem: OTHER

CANDIDATES, INCLUDING TED

CRUZ, WEIGHED IN ON THE

CONTROVERSY.

IT SHOULDN'T BE

COMPLICATED, THAT MEMBERS

OF THE CAMPAIGN STAFF

SHOULD NOT BE PHYSICALLY

ASSAULTING THE PRESS.

Efrem: AND TRUMP IS

MAKING WAVES FOR BACKING

OUT ON HIS PLEDGE TO

SUPPORT WHOEVER THE

REPUBLICAN NOMINEE IS FOR

PRESIDENT.

NO.

I DON'T.

YOU DON'T?

NO.

WE'LL SEE WHO IT IS.

Efrem: CRUZ SAYS HE

WILL SUPPORT THE

REPUBLICAN NOMINEE, EVEN

IF IT IS DONALD TRUMP, BUT

HE DOESN'T EXPECT THAT TO

BE AN ISSUE.

LET ME TELL YOU MY

SOLUTION TO THAT: DONALD

IS NOT GOING TO BE THE

G.O.P. NOMINATION.

Efrem: MEANWHILE,

HILLARY CLINTON HAS HER

OWN PROBLEMS.

SHE FACES A BIG CHALLENGE

FROM BERNIE SANDERS IN NEW

YORK.

POLLS SHOW CLINTON LEADING

IN THE EMPIRE STATE, WHERE

SHE SERVED AS A SENATOR.

BUT SANDERS HAS ROOTS

THERE.

HE WAS BORN IN NEW YORK,

AND HIS CAMPAIGN HASOUT HAS

OUTLINED A NEW STRATEGY

FOR DOING WELL THERE.

AND ANOTHER JOWC JUDGE HAS

RAISED QUESTIONS ABOUT

CLINTON'S USE OF HER

PRIVATE E-MAIL.

THE JUDGE CALLED HER USE

OF A PRIVATE E-MAIL FOR

GOVERNMENT BUSINESS

EXTRAORDINARY.

AND HE SAID THERE WAS

EVIDENCE OF GOVERNMENT

WRONG-DOING AND BAD FAITH

IN THE ISSUE.

AND THIS WILD CAMPAIGN

SEASON MAY NOT BE OVER.

ESPECIALLY FOR THE

REPUBLICANS, UNTIL THE

CONVENTION WITH A

CONTESTED CONVENTION FOR

THE REPUBLICANS STILL A

POSSIBILITY.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THIS IS THE

GREATEST DEMOCRACY ON

EARTH, AND WE ARE ACTING

LIKE A BANANA REPUBLIC.

DOESN'T IT MAKE YOU SAD,

TO THINK OF THIS GREAT

NATION THAT IS SUPPOSED TO

BE THE LEADER OF THE

WORLD?

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

YOU LOSE YOUR PRINCIPLES.

WE HAVE GONE AWAY FROM THE

BIBLE AS OUR PRINCIPLE.

WE DON'T KNOWLEDGE THE

FACT THAT GOD IS THE

AUTHORITY.

AND THE SUPREME COURT HAS

LED US DOWN A PRIMROSE

PATH THAT IS LEADING TO

TROUBLE.

HERE YOU HAVE THIS MELEE

GOING ON.

YOU HAVE, ON THE ONE HAND,

A SOCIALIST, WHO LOOKS

LIKE HE MAY BE WINNING FOR

A MAJOR PARTY, TAKING US

TO SOCIALISM, WITH THE 90%

TOP INCOME TAX

POSSIBILITY.

ON THE OTHER HAND, YOU'VE

GOT THIS INCREDIBLE THING

GOING ON.

AND SOMEBODY WHO SAID I'M

GOING TO SUPPORT THE PARTY

SAYS MAYBE I'M GOING TO

START A THIRD PARTY.

AND THE NEXT THING YOU

KNOW, IT'S IN CHAOS.

I'M NOT HAPPY.

SO IF THERE IS EVER A TIME

WE NEED TO PRAY FOR THIS

NATION, THIS IS IT.

> IN OTHER NEWS,

AUTHORITIES IN MEMPHIS ARE

INVESTIGATING WHY A MAN

SHOWED UP AS A MEGA CHURCH

ARMED WITH TWO GUNS AND A

BAG OF AMMUNITION.

HE CAME ON EASTER SUNDAY.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT

STORY.

John: FORTUNATELY,

PAT, THE SECURITY TEAM AT

BELLEVUE BAPTIST CHURCH

DETAINED THE MAN AND

CALLED THE POLICE.

THIS IS THE SAME CHURCH

CBN NEWS VISITED IN 2014

TO HIGHLIGHT ITS

STATE-OF-THE-ART SECURITY

SYSTEM.

CHARLENE AARON HAS MORE.

Charlene: MEMBERS OF

BELLEVUE BAPTIST CHURCH

ARE COUNTING THEIR

BLESSINGS AFTER AN ARMED

MAN ENTERED THEIR

SANCTUARY DURING EASTER

MORNING SERVICE.

ABOUT 4500 PEOPLE WERE IN

THE SANCTUARY FOR THE

11 a.m. SERVICE WHEN

31-YEAR-OLD MARCUS DONALD

ARRIVED.

A CHURCH HOSTESS NOTICED A

PISTOL STICKING OUT OF HIS

POCKET, AND ALERTED A

CHURCH MINISTER, WHO

CALLED CHURCH SECURITY.

BELLEVUE BAPTIST, WITH

MORE THAN 30,000 MEMBERS,

HAS LONG BEEN READY FOR

SUCH AN EVENT.

IN 2014, CBN NEWS

HIGHLIGHTED BELLEVUE IN A

STORY ABOUT CHURCH

SECURITY.

THE CHURCH I WENT TO AS

A KID HAD ONLY ABOUT 200

PEOPLE AND WE KNEW

EVERYBODY WHO CAME THROUGH

THOSE DOORS.

BUT WHEN YOU HAVE A CHURCH

THIS SIZE, IT IS ALMOST

LIKE A CIVIC CENTER.

IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE THE

CHALLENGES THAT WOULD GO

WITH TRYING TO KEEP THIS

MANY PEOPLE SAFE.

Charlene: ANDY LEWIS

HEADS UP THE SECURITY

STAFF.

TODAY CHURCHES THAT

TEACH AND PREACH TRUE

BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES, THEY

DRAW A LOT OF ATTENTION

BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT OF

COMPONENTS OF SOCIETY

TODAY WHO DON'T WANT TO

HEAR THAT AND WHO ARE

ABSOLUTELY AGAINST THAT.

AS A CHURCH SECURITY TEAM,

WE HAVE TO BE PREPARED FOR

THOSE KINDS OF SITUATIONS,

TO INTERVENE AND TO

PROTECT THE FLOCK.

Charlene: WILLIS SAYS

THE CHURCH ALSO RELIES ON

STATE OSTATE-OF-THE-ART CAMERAS.

A CAMERA SYSTEM THAT

CONSTANTLY RECORDS

ACTIVITIES ON CAMPUS IS

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.

THEY'RE NOT VERY

EXPENSIVE.

THE THING YOU GET IS THE

PROTECTION IN A LIABILITY

SITUATION THAT YOU WON'T

HAVE IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT.

Charlene: POLICE SAID

DONALD TOLD HIM,

QUOTE,"PEOPLE IN SOCIETY

ARE A THREAT TO HIM AND HE

MUST BE VIGILANT."

CLEARLY HE WAS

DISTURBED A LITTLE BIT.

I'M NOT A DOCTOR.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE

DIAGNOSIS FOR HIM IS.

BUT HE CERTAINLY HAD THE

POTENTIAL TO DO A LOT OF

REALLY BAD STUFF.

Charlene: MEMBERS ARE

THANKFUL THAT NO ONE WAS

HURT.

EVERYTHING WAS ALL

RIGHT IN THERE.

NOTHING WENT ON INSIDE THE

SANCTUARY.

I HEARD A DISRUPTION IN

THE CHURCH.

I DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING

ABOUT ANYONE BEING ARMED.

AS THE PASTOR SAID, WE

HAD A DISTURBANCE.

Charlene: MEANWHILE,

DONALD, WHO'S MOTHER

ATTENDS THE CHURCH, WAS

ARRESTED WITHOUT INCIDENT,

AND THE POLICE ARE

CONTINUING THEIR

INVESTIGATION.

ON TWITTER, CHURCH LEADERS

POSTED: "NOBODY WAS

INJURED.

PRAISE THE LORD FOR HIS

PROTECTION."

LEWIS SAYS CHRISTIANS NEED

TO TRUST GOD BUT BE

PREPARED.

THE BIGGEST THING THAT

MAKES ME CRINGES WHEN I

SPEAK TO OTHER CHURCHES

ABOUT SECURITY IS WHEN

THEY SAY, WE DON'T HAVE

SECURITY.

WE'RE JUST PRAYING NOTHING

HAPPENS.

Charlene: AND DAYS

BEFORE THAT, THE HELD A

PRAYER RALLY OVER THE

CHURCH.

A LARGE GROUP SHOWED UP

AND PRAYED OVER EVERY SEAT

IN THE SANCTUARY, PRAYED

OVER THE HALLWAYS AND THE

CLASSROOMS.

WE PRAYED FOR SOULS TO BE

REACHED.

WE PRAYED FOR THE MESSAGE

OF CHRIST TO GET OUT.

ADDITIONALLY, THESE

INDIVIDUALS, THEY COME

EVERY WEEK, FAITHFULLY,

LED BY OUR PASTOR, STEVE

GAINES, AND WE PRAYED FOR

SAFETY.

WE PRAYED THAT NO HARM

WOULD COME TO THIS PLACE.

Charlene: PRAYERS

THAT WERE HEARD AND

ANSWERED.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

John: THANKS,

CHARLENE.

THE SUPREME COURT IS

LOOKING AT A COMPROMISED

RULING IN THE SHOWDOWN

BETWEEN "THE LITTLE

SISTERS OF THE POOR" AND

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

OVER BIRTH CONTROL.

THE COMPROMISE COULD ALLOW

THOSE SEEKING

CONTRACEPTIVES TO RECEIVE

BIRTH CONTROL DIRECTLY

FROM THE INSURER.

THAT WOULD KEEP THE

NON-PROFIT FROM

INVESTIGATION ANY

INVOLVEMENT IN PROVIDING

BIRTH CONTROL.

> THE ABSENCE OF JUSTICE

ANTONIN SCALIA IS HAVING A

MAJOR EFFECT ON THE HIGH

COURT.

THEY ARE SPLIT 4 TO 4, THE

SPLIT GIVES THE GOVERNMENT

UNIONS A WIN BECAUSE THE

LOWER COURT'S RULING STAYS

IN PLACE.

PAT, IT IS BELIEVED SCALIA

ALMOST CERTAINLY WOULD

HAVE SIDED WITH THE

EMPLOYEES AGAINST THOSE

UNIONS.

Pat: THEY WERE READY

TO OVERTURN THAT CASE.

HERE IS THE DEAL: THE LAW

WAS SAYING THAT YOU HAVE

TO PAY DUES TO A PUBLIC

SERVICE UNION, WHETHER YOU

AGREE WITH WHAT THEY'RE

DOING OR NOT, WHETHER

YOU'RE PART OF THE UNION

OR NOT.

YOU'VE GOT TO PAY DUES

REGARDLESS.

I MEAN, IT IS TAXATION

WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.

IT FLIES IN THE FACE OF

ALL OF THE PRINCIPLES OF

THIS NATION.

THE FACT THAT THIS WAS A 4

TO 4 DECISION, IT IS JUST

ABSURD.

IT SHOWS WHAT A RAZOR

EDGE -- THE SUPREME COURT

ISN'T A JUDICIAL BODY

ANYMORE.

NO WAY.

IT IS A POLITICAL ARM.

IT IS VOTING DEMOCRAT,

VOTING REPUBLICAN, VOTING

CONSERVATIVE, VOTING

LIBERAL.

IT IS NOT ANY LONGER IS IT

A DISPASSIONATE BODY THAT

IS DETERMINING THE LAW.

YOU WISH IT WERE, BUT IT

IS NOT.

AND, THEREFORE, WHEN YOU

PUT SOMEBODY ON IT, IT'S

LIKE A POLITICAL GROUP.

IT'S LIKE A BOARD OF

SUPERVISORS.

YOU NEED A MAJORITY TO

WIN.

SO IN THAT THING, YOU'VE

GOT TO HAVE ANOTHER MEMBER

ON THERE.

AND IT IS VITALLY

IMPORTANT.

AS TED CRUZ HAS BEEN

SAYING, IT IS GOING TO

DETERMINE THE SUPREME

COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES, NOT TO MENTION THE

SENATE AND ALL OF THESE

OTHER BODIES.

WE'RE ON, AGAIN, A KNIFE'S

EDGE.

JOHN?

John: PAT, AN

ASTEROID OR COMET JUST

LANDED INTO JUPITER, AND

TWO AMATEUR ASTRONOMERS

CAUGHT IT ON VIDEO.

YOU CAN SEE JUPITER.

HE ACCIDENTALLY RECORDED A

VISIBLE IMPACT ON THE

PLANET.

JUPITER IS OFTEN HIT BY

SPACE ROCKS BECAUSE OF HIS

STRONG GRAVITATIONAL PULL.

IT WILL PULL IN SPACE

OCTOBER FIVE TIMES FASTER

THAN IT WOULD HIT THE

EARTH.

ASTRONOMERS HAVE LONG BEEN

CONCERNED THAT AN ASTEROID

COULD SLAM INTO THE EARTH

AND CAUSE TREMENDOUS

DISTURBANCE.

AND, PAT, IT HAS CONCERNED

YOU, TOO?

Pat: OF COURSE.

HERE IS THE DEAL: WHEN GOD

WAS SETTING UP THIS SOLAR

SYSTEM, ONE OF THE

PROTECTIONS WE HAVE IS

JUPITER.

JUPITER IS LIKE A BIG

BROTHER, SUCKING THESE

THINGS WITH A

GRAVITATIONAL PULL THAT

WOULD BE COMING AGAINST

EARTH.

AND WE ARE PROTECTED.

ONE OF THE ITEMS THAT HIT

JUPITER WAS SEVERAL TIMES

BIGGER THAN EARTH.

IT WOULD HAVE DEMOLISHED

THIS PLANET.

INSTEAD OF HITTING US, IT

WOULD HAVE HIT JUPITER.

WE'VE GOT THE SUN AND THE

MOON AND ALL OF THESE

THINGS, BUT IT IS ALL IN

BALANCE.

IF THERE IS EVER A THING

THAT SHOWS THE EXISTENCE

OF A CREATOR, THIS IS ONE

OF THEM.

Wendy: FASCINATING.

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT ABOUT

JUPITER.

Pat: IT'S LIKE A BIG

BROTHER.

HE'S UP THERE PULLING

THESE THINGS FROM SPACE.

BUT THERE WAS A GREAT BIG

METEOR, I GUESS, THAT WENT

INTO JUPITER AND HIT IT

BIG.

IT WAS SEVERAL TIMES

LARGER THAN THE EARTH.

IF IT WOULD HAVE HIT THIS

PLANET, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN

THE END OF US.

Wendy: THAT WOULD BE

THE END.

Pat: ONE MORE THING

YOU CAN THANK THE LORD

FOR.

Wendy: UP NEXT, NEW

TECHNOLOGY EQUALS NEW HOPE

FOR CANCER PATIENTS.

YOU CAN GO AND HAVE

SURGERY IN THE MORNING,

COME HOME AND GO TO WORK

THE NEXT DAY.

IT IS JUST THAT SIMPLE.

Wendy: HEAR MORE

ABOUT THESE REVOLUTIONARY

TREATMENTS, RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Pat: CANCER, YOU KNOW

KNOW -- I'VE HAD CANCER.

PEOPLE MAKE A BIG DEAL OF

IT.

WITH ME, HEY, IT IS JUST

ONE MORE THING THAT

HAPPENS.

MY WIFE HAD BREAST CANCER.

AND I HAD PROSTATE CANCER.

AND I'M WHAT YOU'D CALL A

CANCER SURVIVOR.

THEY HAD THAT CANCER, AND

I SAID, I WANT IT OUT OF

MY BODY, GET RID OF IT.

THEY CUT THE PROSTATE OUT,

AND LO AND BEHOLD, I'M

STILL HERE YEARS LATER.

MY WIFE HAD A LUMP, AND

THEY DID THE MASTECTOMY

THING, AND SHE IS HERE

YEARS LATER.

BUT NOW, INSTEAD OF THIS

RADICAL SURGERY, THEY HAVE

THIS INCREDIBLY FOCUSED

IMPLANTATION OF LITTLE

SEEDS THAT ARE ABLE TO

KILL THE CANCER IN

PEOPLE'S BODIES.

AND 10 YEARS AGO, DOCTORS

HAD NO IDEA THAT A NEW

TECHNOLOGY ON THE HORIZON

WOULD HELP THEM FIGHT

CANCER.

AND LORI JOHNSON SHOWS US

HOW ONE LEADING TREATMENT

CENTER IS HELPING PATIENTS

BEAT CANCER IN A WAY THAT

IS LIGHT YEARS AHEAD OF

ANYTHING WE'VE HAD IN THE

PAST.

Lori: UNFORTUNATELY

CANCER IS STILL PREVALENT

IN OUR SOCIETY.

FOUR OUT OF 10 AMERICANS

WILL LEARN THEY HAVE

CANCER SOME TIME DURING

THEIR LIFE.

THE GOOD NEWS: THAT

DIAGNOSIS ISN'T WHAT IT

USED TO BE.

TODAY'S CANCER

TREATMENTS OFFER GREATER

HOPE THAN EVER BEFORE.

BOTH WITH INCREASED CURE

RATES AND FEWER SIDE

EFFECTS.

THIS IS A RADICAL THING

THAT A MAN GOES THROUGH.

Lori: LIKE MILLIONS

OF MEN DIAGNOSED WITH

PROSTATE CANCER, DENNIS

JONES NOT ONLY WORRIED

ABOUT GETTING RID OF THE

CANCER, BUT ALSO THE

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF

SURGERY.

INCONTINENCE, IF IT'S A

PROBLEM FOR YOU, YOU COULD

BE LEAKING URINE ALL DAY,

EVERY DAY, FOR THE REST OF

YOUR LIFE.

THAT COULD BE A MUCH

BIGGER PROBLEM THAN HAVING

PROBLEMS WITH SEXUAL

FUNCTION.

I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING

TO SPEND ETERNITY, BUT FOR

LIFE ON EARTH HERE, I WANT

TO BE AS PRODUCTIVE AS I

POSSIBLY CAN.

Lori: THAT'S WHY

JONES CHOSE BRACHY THERAPY

SEED IMPLANTS.

AT THE BONS SEQUOIA BON SECOURS

INSTITUTE.

IT BEGINS WERE DOCTORS

PLANT TINY RADIOACTIVE

SEEDS INSIDE THE PROSTATE.

WE PLACE NEEDLES INTO

THE PROSTATE, AND THE

PATIENT IS ASLEEP, OF

COURSE, AND WE'RE ABLE TO

SLIDE THE TINY PELLETS IN

THE NEEDLE INTO THE

PROSTATE, SO THEY RADIATE

FROM THE INSIDE OUT.

WE'RE KILLING THE CANCER

FROM THE INSIDE.

AND WE CAN MAKE IT SO THAT

IT IS SO CONFORMAL TO THE

TARGET SO THAT THE NORMAL

TISSUE, THE BLADDER, THE

RECTUM, GETS VERY LITTLE

DOSE AND HAS NO

COMPLICATIONS FOR THE

PATIENT.

Lori: IT ONLY TAKES A

COUPLE OF HOURS.

I REALLY SEE THE

ADVANTAGE OF BRACHY

THERAPY IN THE ONE AND

DONE PRINCIPLE.

YOU GET ALL OF THE

RADIATION IN AT ONCE, PUT

UP WITH SOME SIDE EFFECTS

FOR A BRIEF PERIOD OF

TIME, AND THEN THE

TREATMENT IS DONE.

AND ALL WE DO IS WE

OBSERVE TO MAKE SURE THAT

THE TREATMENT WORKED.

AND IT IS AMAZING TO SEE

THE RESULTS.

Lori: LIKE LOW P.H.

A.s, A BLOOD TEST WHERE

HIGHER NUMBERS INDICATE

CANCER.

MY NUMBERS 1.16, 13 TO

16 AND MORE, AND TODAY IT

WAS 0.02.

THOSE ARE GOOD NUMBERS, BY

THE WAY.

THOSE ARE VERY GOOD

NUMBERS -- I'M VERY

EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

I THANK GOD FOR LEADING ME

TO THE RIGHT PHYSICIANS.

Lori: AND THOSE

DOCTORS REGULARLY THANK

GOD, TOO, BECAUSE BON

SECOURS IS THE ONLY

FAITH-BASED HOSPITAL IN

THE STATE.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE

TAKE CARE OF IS THOSE WHO

CAN'T REALLY AFFORD TO

PAY.

WE REALLY SEE THIS AS A

MISSION, WHERE WE'RE

REACHING OUT AND TAKING

CARE OF THOSE PEOPLE.

IT REALLY IS A MINISTRY.

PEOPLE PRAY FOR PATIENTS

AND REALLY CARE ABOUT THE

PATIENTS.

Lori: PART OF THAT

CARE IS PURSUING

TECHNOLOGY THAT PROTECTS

THE BODY FROM AGGRESSIVE

TREATMENT.

WHILE SEED IMPLANTS

RADIATE FROM INSIDE, WHAT

IS KNOWN AS TRUE BEAM

WORKS FROM THE OUTSIDE IN.

WITH THE LATEST RADIATION

TECHNIQUES, THE KEY IS

PRECISION.

NEW TOOLS BETTER ISOLATE

THE TUMOR, THEREBY

PROTECTING THE HEALTHY

TISSUE SURROUNDING IT.

THAT MEANS HIGHER DOSES OF

RADIATION CAN BE USED.

COMPUTER SOFTWARE HELPS

TRUE BEAM HIT THE TUMOR

FROM EVERY ANGLE.

WHEN ANNIE LEARNED SHE HAD

BREAST CANCER, SHE ASSUMED

THE WORST.

MY NOTION WAS I WAS

GOING TO GO WITHOUT TWO

BREASTS REAL FAST.

I WAS JUST GOING TO HAVE

TO ACCEPT THE FACT THAT AT

MY AGE I WASN'T GOING TO

NEED THEM ANYMORE.

Lori: HAPPILY, SHE

WAS WRONG.

NOWADAYS, THE MAJORITY

OF PATIENTS DON'T NEED A

MAST TECHMITY.

MASTECTOMY.

THEY CAN HAVE A PARTIAL

MASTECTOMY, AND IT IS JUST

AS GOOD AS A MASTECTOMY.

Lori: WHEN THE DOCTOR

REMOVES A TUMOR, HE PUTS

THIS BIOSORB IN ITS PLACE.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

DOCTORS THAT DON'T KNOW

ABOUT IT.

Lori: IT HELPS

PINPOINT WHERE THE TUMOR

USED TO BE, SO DOCTORS

KNOW EXACTLY WHERE TO

RADIATE.

AND IT MAKES BREASTS LOOK

NORMAL.

YOU'RE TAKING A PORTION

OF THE BREAST OUT.

YOU'RE LEAVING AN EMPTY

SPACE.

AND THAT CAN DISTORT THE

BREAST.

THIS DEVICE IS A THREE

DIMENSIONAL DEVICE, AND IT

PROVIDES SOME SCAFFOLDING

TO THE BREAST TO DECREASE

THE AMOUNT OF DEFORMITY

YOU MIGHT BE CAUSING.

THEY HAVE EVERYTHING

THERE FOR YOU, ESPECIALLY

THIS BIOSORB.

YOU CAN GO IN AND HAVE

SURGERY IN THE MORNING,

COME HOME IN THE AFTERNOON

AND GO TO WORK THE NEXT

DAY.

IT IS JUST THAT SIMPLE.

Lori: SO WHILE A

CANCER DIAGNOSIS CAN BE

TRAUMATIC, NEW TREATMENTS

CAN OFTEN LEAD TO BETTER

CURE RATES THAN BEFORE

WITH FEWER COMPLICATIONS.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THAT BON SECOURS

IS HERE, LOCATED IN

NORFOLK.

IT IS NOT CALLED BON

FABULOUS JOB.

AND WE WERE FORTUNATE TO

PARTNER WITH THEM FOR SOME

OF THE EQUIPMENT.

THERE IS HOPE FOR YOU

LADIES.

Wendy: THANK THE

LORD.

> COMING UP, MEET A

GRANDMOTHER WHO TOOK A

GREAT BIG TUMBLE.

I THOUGHT THE SIDEWALK

WAS WET, BUT IT WASN'T.

IT WAS BLACK ICE.

THE MINUTE I STEPPED ON

IT, I WENT FLYING.

I WENT DOWN IN NO TIME

FLAT.

I WAS SEEING STARS AND

HEARD BELLS RINGING.

Wendy: OUCH!

SEE THE MIRACLE THAT GOT

HER BACK ON HER FEET,

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: MELANIE LOVES

RAISING HER GRANDDAUGHTER,

BUT A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO,

THEIR ROLES WERE REVERSED.

MELANIE'S GRANDDAUGHTER

HAD TO TAKE CARE OF HER

AFTER SHE TOOK A TERRIBLE

FALL.

Reporter: MELANIE AND

HER GRANDDAUGHTER, LEVI,

LOVE TO VISIT FAMILY IN

PENNSYLVANIA.

IN DECEMBER 2013, THEY

WERE GETTING READY TO HEAD

HOME TO SOUTH CAROLINA.

I THOUGHT, WELL, LET ME

JUST FINISH PUTTING THINGS

IN THE CAR.

I WALKED OUT AND I THOUGHT

THE SIDEWALK WAS WET.

BUT IT WASN'T.

IT WAS BLACK ICE.

THE MINUTE I STEPPED ON

IT, I WENT FLYING.

I WENT DOWN IN NO TIME

FLAT.

AND I WAS SEEING STARS AND

HEARING BELLS RING.

I FELL THIS WAY, ON MY

SIDE.

FINALLY I MANAGED TO GET

TO SOME BUSHES TO HELP ME

GET UP.

AND IT WAS JUST MISERABLE.

Reporter: THE NEXT

DAY THEY STARTED OUT ON A

12-HOUR DRIVE HOME.

I DIDN'T REALIZE HOW

BAD A SHAPE I WAS IN AT

THE TIME UNTIL A COUPLE OF

HOURS INTO THE TRIP.

AND MY HIP WAS JUST

THROBBING AND HURTING.

I WAS JUST PRAYING MY WAY

HOME.

IT WAS, LIKE, LORD, HELP

ME JUST TO GET HOME.

Reporter: MELANIE

CONTINUED TO HAVE PAIN,

BUT ASSUMED IT EVENTUALLY

WOULD GO AWAY.

IT WAS GETTING WORSE

AND WORSE AND WORSE WITH

TIME.

I COULD HARDLY DO

ANYTHING.

EVERYTHING WAS AN EFFORT.

EVERYTHING WAS SO PAINFUL.

THE FOLLOWING SUMMER, I

WENT BACK TO PENNSYLVANIA,

WHERE I HAVE A

CHIROPRACTOR, AND HE SAID

YOUR HELP IS COMPLETELY

OUT.

I WAS GOING TO HIM A

COUPLE TIMES A WEEK.

AND I SAID TO HIM, IS IT

GOING TO STAY IN?

AND HE SAID, YOU WENT SUCH

A LONG PERIOD OF TIME, NO,

IT MIGHT NOT BE THAT EASY

TO GO BACK IN.

I'M RAISING MY

GRANDDAUGHTER, BUT SHE WAS

MORE CARING FOR ME THAN I

WAS HER.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD

HAVE DONE WITHOUT HER.

IT CONTINUED FOR, I WOULD

SAY, A YEAR.

YOU KNOW, I WATCH "700 "THE 700

CLUB" EVERY DAY.

I WAS SITTING THERE

LISTENING TO HIM, AND HE

SAID, THERE IS A WOMAN

NAMED MELANIE.

Pat: THERE IS A WOMAN

NAMED MELANIE.

AND I WENT...OKAY.

AND HE SAID...

Pat: AND YOU HAVE A

WEAKNESS IN YOUR SIDE AND

LEG.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT

CAUSES YOU TO LIMP, BUT

THERE IS A WEAKNESS.

RIGHT NOW YOU'LL FEEL LIKE

A BOLT OF ELECTRICITY

GOING THROUGH YOUR BODY.

AND YOU'RE STRENTHENED AND

MADE WHOLE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

OH, WELL, THERE YOU GO.

THAT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN

WAITING FOR.

THAT'S ME.

I JUST KNEW THAT I KNEW.

IT WAS JUST THAT KNOWING

THAT HE CALLED ME BY NAME.

Reporter: WITHIN A

COUPLE DAYS, MELANIE'S HIP

PAIN STARTED TO EASE.

FROM THAT POINT ON,

THINGS STARTED GETTING

BETTER AND BETTER.

AND IT'S JUST AWESOME.

IT'S AWESOME.

FOR THE PEOPLE WHO REALIZE

WHAT HAPPENED TO ME, WHOA!

Reporter: SOON SHE

WAS BACK TO BEING A DOTING

GRANDMOTHER.

SO NOW I'M ABLE TO GIVE

BACK TO HER AND LIVE A

GOOD LIFE WITH HER.

GOD IS GOOD.

WE SERVE A GRACIOUS,

WONDERFUL, GOOD GOD.

Wendy: AMAZING.

PAT CALLED HER BY NAME.

MAYBE YOU WON'T HEAR YOUR

NAME TODAY, BUT GOD KNOWS

YOUR NAME AND HE KNOWS

YOUR NEED.

AND WE'RE GOING TO PRAY

FOR YOU IN JUST A MINUTE.

BUT WE'VE GOT SOME PRAISE

REPORTS HERE, PAT.

THIS IS AN ANSWER TO

PRAYER.

FOR SEVERAL YEARS FEAR

OVERWHELMED GEORGE FROM

ILLINOIS.

HE REACHED A POINT WHERE

HE WAS STAYING BY HIMSELF

AT HOME, LOCKED IN HIS

BEDROOM.

ON MARCH 4, JUST A FEW

DAYS AGO, HE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB" WHEN HE

HEARD YOU GIVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, PAT.

YOU SAID THAT FEAR WAS

LEAVING SOMEONE, AND THEN

YOU EVEN MENTIONED GEORGE

BY NAME.

AND GEORGE CLAIMED THAT

WORD FOR HIMSELF.

THE DARK CLOUD THAT HAS

SURROUNDED HIM BEGAN TO

DISPERSE.

THE BURDEN OF FEAR WAS

LIFTED AND HE BEGAN TO

THINK CLEARLY AGAIN.

Pat: I DIDN'T KNOW

MELANIE AND I DIDN'T KNOW

GEORGE, BUT GOD KNEW THEM

BY NAME.

Wendy: EXACTLY.

HE WANTED TO SPEAK

DIRECTLY TO THEM.

Pat: HERE IS ONE FROM

GEORGIA, AND SHE HAS BEEN

SUFFERING FROM SEVERE NECK

PAIN SINCE LAST OCTOBER.

SHE HAD PROBLEMS MOVING

HER NECK.

SHE WAS WATCHING US.

AND, WENDY, YOU SAID,

QUOTE,"SOMEBODY WITH

DEBILITATING ARTHRITIS, UR

IN MUCH PAIN, AND GOD IS

HEARING YOU.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOU.

RECEIVE YOUR HEALING BY

FAITH."

AND YOU DIDN'T KNOW

JUANITA, EITHER?

Wendy: I DID NOT.

Pat: YOU KNOW, FOLKS,

HOW DID GOD CREATE THE

WORLD?

WE TALKED ABOUT JUPITER

EARLIER.

GOD SPOKE AND ALL OF THESE

PLANETS CAME INTO BEING.

GOD KNEW HOW TO DO ALL OF

THAT.

GOD KNEW IT.

GOD KNOWS WHO YOU ARE.

HEALING IS NOTHING FOR

HIM.

BUT WE'RE SEEING THIS.

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IS

RIGHT NOW WENDY AND I ARE

GOING TO JOIN HANDS

TOGETHER, AND WE'RE GOING

TO BELIEVE GOD FOR YOU.

WOULD YOU PLEASE PRAY WITH

US?

GIVE YOUR BURDENS TO THE

LORD.

FATHER, I JOIN HANDS WITH

MY SISTER IN CHRIST.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, MAY

THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT BE UPON THEM RIGHT

NOW.

THERE IS SOMEBODY WITH

BREAST CANCER RIGHT NOW,

IT IS THE LEFT BREAST.

PUT YOUR HAND RIGHT THERE.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, ALL

OF THOSE TUMORS ARE

DISSOLVING, AND THAT

CANCER IS GOING IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

TOUCH!

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEONE -- A LADY -- YOU

WERE IN A CAR ACCIDENT AND

YOUR SPINE IS COMPLETELY

OUT OF ALIGNMENT.

YOU'RE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.

AND GOD IS BRINGING YOU

BACK INTO ALIGNMENT RIGHT

NOW.

HE IS TOUCHING YOUR SPINE,

FROM YOUR NECK, ALL THE

WAY DOWN.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE HEALED.

Pat: THERE IS

SOMEBODY, YOU'VE GOT

TUMORS IN YOUR ESOPHAGUS.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER YOU

BURNED IT OR IT IS A

FUNGUS.

BUT THEY'RE LIKE TUMORS.

RIGHT NOW GOD -- YOU'LL

FEEL LIKE A HOT BREATH OF

AIR IS BURNING THROUGH

YOUR ESOPHAGUS, AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU RIGHT NOW.

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH REALLY

TERRIBLE SCIATIC NERVE

PAIN.

IT IS NEW TO YOU, AND YOU

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS AT

FIRST, BUT GOD IS HEALING

YOU RIGHT NOW.

IT IS IN YOUR RIGHT LEG,

AND REACH OUT AND CLAIM IT

IN JESUS' NAME.

ELSE WHO IS CRYING OUT TO

THE LORD, RECEIVE AN

ANSWER TO YOUR PRAYER.

LET THE LOVE OF GOD IN INFOLD

YOU.

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

HE PLAYED WITH FIRE AS A

9-YEAR-OLD AND BARELY

SURVIVED WITH BURNS ON

100% OF HIS BODY.

JOHN O'LEARY SHOWS US HIS

INCREDIBLE TRIUMPH OVER

TRAGEDY.

THAT'S COMING UP NEXT.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWS BREAK.

THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL OF

NORTH CAROLINA SAYS HE

WON'T DEFEND THE STATE'S

NEW TRANSGENDER LAW.

ROY COOPER IS RUNNING FOR

GOVERNOR.

McCORY SIGNED THE LAW.

THAT ALLOWED PEOPLE TO

CHOOSE MEN'S OR FEMALE

BATHROOMS DEPENDING ON THE

SEXUAL IDENTITY THEY

IDENTIFIED WITH.

CHRIS PRATT IS MAKING

HEADLINES FOR WHAT HE DID

ON EASTER SUNDAY.

TAKE A LOOK.

THE ACTOR ERECTED A HUGE

20-FOOT CROSS AND

DOCUMENTED THE PROCESS ON

INSTAGRAM.

THE FINAL SHOT SHOWS PRATT

AND HIS TWO HELPERS

STANDING IN FRONT OF THE

CROSS WITH A MESSAGE:

"HAPPY EASTER."

PRATT HAS TALKED ABOUT HIS

CHRISTIAN FAITH IN THE

PAST, AND SAID HE AND HIS

WIFE PRAYED FOR WEEKS WHEN

HIS SON WAS BORN

PREMATURELY IN 2013, AND

HE TOLD "PEOPLE MAGAZINE"

THAT RESTORED AND

REDEFINED HIS FAITH IN

GOD.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELL, EVERY

ADULT CAN REMEMBER BEING

TOLD AS A KID, DON'T PLAY

WITH FIRE.

JOHN O'LEARY IS NO

EXCEPTION, ACCEPT JOHN

DIDN'T LISTEN.

Reporter: JOHN

O'LEARY WAS JUST NINE

YEARS OLD WHEN HE SUFFERED

SEVERE BURNS TO 100% OF

HIS BODY.

HE HAD SEEN SOME OLDER

KIDS PLAYING WITH GAS AND

FIRE, SO HE TRIED IT IN

HIS PARENTS' GARAGE.

RECOVERY WAS PAINFUL AND

DEMANDING, BUT HE VOWED TO

PRESS ON.

WITH LITTLE MUSCLE TISSUE

LEFT IN HIS LEGS AND ALL

OF HIS FINGERS AMPUTATED,

HE LEARNED AGAIN HOW TO

WALK AND RIGHT.

WRITE.

NOW AS A MOTIVATIONAL

SPEAKER, HE INSPIRES OTHER

TO LIVE.

Wendy: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB" FOR THE

VERY FIRST TIME, JOHN

O'LEARY.

WENDY, WHAT AN HONOR.

IT'S THRILLING TO BE WITH

YOU.

Wendy: YOU LIVED

EVERY KID'S NIGHTMARE AND

PARENTS' NIGHTMARE, YOU

SET YOURSELF ON FIRE.

WHAT HAPPENED?

I HAD SEEN LITTLE BOYS

IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD PLAYING

WITH FIRE AND GASOLINE

ABOUT A WEEK EARLIER.

I ASSUMED IF THEY COULD DO

IT, SO COULD I.

IT IS A PRETTY TYPICAL

MALE BEHAVIOR AT THIS

YOUNG AGE.

SO I WENT INTO MY GARAGE

EARLY ON A SATURDAY

MORNING, AND MY MOM AND

DAD WERE GONE, I WALKED

OVER TO A FIVE GALLON CAN

OF GASOLINE, LIT A PIECE

OF CARDBOARD ON FIRE, AND

HUGGED THE CONTAINER AND

STARTED TO POUR.

BEFORE THE LIQUID EVEN

SHOWS UP, THE FUMES COME

OUT.

THEY GRABBED THE FLAME,

PULL IT BACK IN, AND IT

CREATES THIS MASSIVE

EXPLOSION.

PICKS ME UP AND LAUNCHES

ME 20 FEET AGAINST THE FAR

SIDE OF THE GARAGE AND

CHANGES MY LIFE FOREVER.

Wendy: YOU'RE LUCKY

JUST THE IMPACT DIDN'T

KILL YOU.

YOU'RE COMPLETELY ON FIRE

FROM HEAD TO TOE.

YES.

Wendy: YOU RUN INTO

YOUR HOUSE.

YES.

Wendy: YOUR TWO

SISTERS SCREAM, BUT YOUR

BROTHER, JIM -- HE KNEW

WHAT TO DO?

YES, BUT HE WAS NOT

PREPARED TO DO THIS.

HE IS 17, SLEEPING IN A

BASEMENT.

I REMEMBER STANDING ON MY

MOM AND DAD'S FRONT RUG IN

THE HALL SCREAMING, I NEED

A HERO.

I'LL TAKE ANYBODY.

MY BROTHER JIM, 17, RACES

TOWARDS ME.

AND I REMEMBER THINKING,

GOD, ANYBODY ELSE.

I NEED SOMEONE WHO CAN DO

SOMETHING MASSIVE.

NOT A 17-YEAR-OLD BOY.

YET GOD CAN USE US ALL.

JIM IS PROOF OF THAT.

HE PICKS UP A RUG AND

BEATS DOWN THE FLAMES.

Wendy: AND IT WAS

WINTER SO HE TOOK YOU

OUTSIDE AND ROLLED YOU IN

THE SNOW.

EXACTLY.

CARRIED ME OUT LIKE A

BABY, ROLLS ME IN THE

GRASS, AND JUMPS ON TOP OF

ME, AND HE BECOMES MY

HERO.

Wendy: YOUR BROTHER

CALLS 9-1-1, AND YOUR

PARENTS AREN'T HOME.

YOU'RE ALONE IN THIS

AMBULANCE, YOU GET TO THE

HOSPITAL, AND YOUR MOM

SHOWS UP.

RIGHT.

I REMEMBER LAYING IN THE

HOSPITAL BED, WENDY, BY

MYSELF.

I HAVE NO CLOTHES AND I

HAVE NO SKIN.

SO I SHUT MY EYES.

AS A 9-YEAR-OLD, MY

THOUGHT WAS, OH, MY GOSH,

MY PARENTS ARE GOING TO

KILL ME.

THEY'RE GOING TO KILL ME.

AND THEN I HEAR MY MOM'S

VOICE.

SHE WALKS IN AND TAKES MY

RIGHT HAND, SHE PASSED MY

BALD HEAD AND SAYS WORDS

I'LL NEVER FORGET: I LOVE

YOU.

I REMEMBER LOOKING BACK

AND SAYING, MOM, KNOCK IT

OFF WITH THE LOVE.

AM I GOING TO DIE?

Wendy: YOU ASKED HER,

AM I GOING TO DIE?

I ASSUMED SHE WOULD

SAY, NO, HONEY, WE'LL GET

YOU OUT HERE THIS

AFTERNOON AND WE'LL SWING

YOU TO A DRIVE THROUGH AND

GET YOU A MILKSHAKE.

BUT INSTEAD OF SHE TOOK MY

RIGHT HAND IN HERS, SHE

PATTED MY BALD HEAD AND

LOOKED ME IN THE EYES, AND

SHE SAYS, DO YOU WANT TO

DIE?

YOUR CHOICE, NOT MINE.

AND I REMEMBER SAYING,

MOM, I DO NOT WANT TO DIE.

AND HER RESPONSE BACK WAS,

GOD GOOD, BABY.

THEN LOOK AT ME.

YOU TAKE THIS HAND OF GOD,

AND YOU WALK WITH HIM AND

YOU FIGHT WITH HIM LIKE

YOU NEVER BEFORE.

AND WE COMMITTED OUR LIVES

TO TAKING THE HAND OF GOD,

AND WALKING THE JOURNEY

WITH HIM, AND FIGHTING

LIKE WE NEVER FOUGHT

BEFORE, AND IT IS A FIGHT

THAT CONTINUES.

Wendy: JOHN, THAT WAS

THE BEGINNING OF THE

FIGHT.

YOU MADE THE DECISION, I'M

GOING TO LIVE.

BUT IT WAS A PAINFUL

FIGHT.

I'M SURE THERE WERE TIMES

YOU WONDERED, IS IT WORTH

IT?

YOU WERE IN THE HOSPITAL

FIVE MONTHS?

EXACTLY.

Wendy: AND EIGHT

MONTHS AT HOME TRYING TO

RECOVER.

YES.

Wendy: AND YOU LOST

ALL OF YOUR FINGERS?

YES.

AND I REMEMBER I THOUGHT

WHEN THE DOCTOR AMPUTATED

MY FINGERS, I THOUGHT IT

WAS THE END OF MY LIFE.

AND I REMEMBER THE DOCTOR

SAYING, I HAVE NOT TAKEN

YOUR LIFE, I HAVE GIVEN

YOU YOUR LIFE.

YOU MAY NOT BECOME A COURT

REPORTER, BUT YOU CAN

BECOME A JUDGE.

YOU MAY NOT BE A BASEBALL

PLAYER, BUT YOU CAN BECOME

A MANAGER.

Wendy: THERE ARE A

LOT OF GOOD DOCTORS AND

NURSES WHO HELP US THROUGH

TIMES LIKE THAT.

TELL US ABOUT SOME OF THE

TURNING POINTS IN YOUR

RECOVERY.

BECAUSE YOU LEARNED TO

WRITE AGAIN, WHICH IS

AMAZING.

YES.

Wendy: TELL US ABOUT

SOME OF THE TURNING

POINTS.

THE FIRST BIG TURNING

POINT AFTER COMING HOME

FROM THE HOSPITAL IS THAT

NIGHT OF CELEBRATION.

WE HAD BEEN THROUGH THIS

MIRACULOUS STORY, FROM

DEATH TO LIFE.

WHEN YOU'RE BURNED ON 100%

OF YOUR BODY, YOU'RE GOING

TO DIE.

SO TO COME HOME FROM THAT,

IT IS A MIRACLE.

MY MOM IS OVER HERE, AND

MY FATHER IS OVER HERE,

AND MY FIVE SIBLINGS ARE

AROUND US.

THEY HAVE REBUILT THE

HOUSE.

MY MOM MADE THE FAVORITE

MEAL, BUT I CAN'T EAT IT.

AND MY FAVORITE SISTER,

AMY, SCOOPS UP POTATOES

AND BRINGS IT TOWARDS MY

MOUTH, AND MY MEAN MOTHER

LOOKS AT MY SISTER AND

SAYS, "AMY, YOU DROP THAT

FORK.

HE'LL FIGURE IT OUT."

BUT FROM DAY ONE, SHE

TAUGHT ME HOW TO LIVE.

Wendy: JOHN, YOU HAVE

REALLY LIVED.

YOU ARE MARRIED TO A

BEAUTIFUL WIFE.

YOU HAVE FOUR KIDS.

YOU'RE A MOTIVATIONAL

SPEAKER.

YOU'RE AN AUTHOR.

YOU'RE TEACHING US HOW TO

LIVE.

AND FACT, YOUR BOOK IS

CALLED, APPROPRIATELY

ENOUGH, "ON FIRE, THE

SEVEN CHRONICLES TO ENACT

A RADICALLY INSPIRED GO GOD."

AND SOMEONE SAID, READ

THIS BOOK IS LIKE HAVING A

FRIEND LOOK YOU STRAIGHT

IN THE EYE AND SAY, THE

TIME TO LIVE IS NOW.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

WE WAKE UP AND DO OUR

THING AND WE GO TO BED.

WE'RE NOT INTENTIONAL WITH

OUR PRAYER LIFE, IN OUR

FINANCIAL SITUATIONS AND

OUR MARRIAGES.

THIS IS A CRY TO WAKE UP,

TO NOT TAKE THINGS FOR

GRANTED, AND TO LIVE THEIR

BEST TODAY, AND IF THEY

GET A TOMORROW, AWESOME,

BUT DON'T WAIT FOR IT TO

COME, LIVE IT RIGHT NOW.

THE FIRST ONE IS

ACCOUNTABILITY.

WE LOVE ENTITLEMENT.

GIVE IT TO US.

GIVE US HOPE.

BUT HOPE IS NOT A

STRATEGY.

ACCOUNTABILITY ALLOWS US

TO DO OUR NEXT BEST THING

RIGHT NOW.

DON'T WAIT FOR TOMORROW.

LIVE IT RIGHT NOW.

Wendy: ACCOUNTABILITY

BETWEEN YOURSELF AND YOU

AND GOD OR HAVING AN

ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER?

THE ANSWER IS YES.

TO GET OFF THE CROSS AND

REALIZE THAT IS ALREADY

TAKEN CARE OF FOR US.

WE NEED ACCOUNTABILITY TO

GOD.

AND WE NEED AN

ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER

BECAUSE WE CAN'T DO IT

OURSELVES.

AND THEN I TALK ABOUT

BEING A VICTIM TO A

VICTOR.

FOR ME, THE QUESTION IS

WHY WAS I BURNED?

WHY DO I HAVE ALL OF THESE

BACK PROBLEMS TO ASKING

WHY DID YOU DIE FOR MY

SINS?

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE ME?

WHY CAN I SEE THE SUN

RISING IN TH AND SETTING?

TODAY I HAVE A LOT TO BE

GRATEFUL FOR, AND I CHOOSE

TO ACKNOWLEDGE IT.

Wendy: AND YOU HAVE

FOUR KIDS, AND ARE THEY

WATCHING?

I'M SURE MOM HAS THEM

OUT OF SCHOOL SAYING, WHAT

IS DAD DOING ON TV.

MY WIFE IS NAMED ELIZABETH

BETH, AND SHE IS GORGEOUS

FROM THE INSIDE AND OUT.

I HAVE AN AMAZING FAMILY

AND I KNOW IT.

Wendy: THE FIRST TIME

YOU MET ELIZABETH, YOU

SAID SHE TOOK YOU BY THE

HAND.

YOU READ THE BOOK.

ONE OF MY CONCERNS GROWING

UP WAS WOULD ANY LITTLE

GIRL BEE ABL BE ABLE TO SEE PAST

THE SCARS.

THAT NIGHT I MET ELIZABETH

ELIZABETH, WE DANCED.

SHE KEPT TAKING MY HAND.

AND SHE TOOK MY HAND AS A

PARTNER AND A SPOUSE, AND

SHE CONTINUES TO TAKE MY

HAND TODAY.

AND WE'VE BEEN PARTY AND

DANCING EVER SINCE.

Wendy: I'M GETTING A

WRAP BECAUSE I CAN'T STOP

INTERVIEWING YOU BECAUSE

IT IS SO AMAZING.

IT IS A FASCINATING STORY.

I KNOW YOU WANT TO HEAR

MORE ABOUT IT.

JUST PICK UP A COPY OF

JOHN'S BASKETBALL.

BOOK.

IT IS CALLED "ON FIRE."

> STILL AHEAD, WE HAVE

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

WE'LL "BRING IT ON" ON

WITH QUESTIONS AND MORE

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE

YOU WITH US.

LISTEN, THERE IS A GUY

NAMED LITTLE RAUL, AND HE

HAS A BRIGHT FUTURE IN

FRONT OF HIM.

BUT NOT LONG AGO, RAUL WAS

GOING BLIND.

AND HIS PARENTS COULDN'T

DO ONE THING TO STOP IT.

Reporter: RAUL'S

PARENTS WERE CONCERNED

WHEN THEY NOTICED HE HAD

PROBLEMS WITH HIS RIGHT

EYE.

WE SAW A WHITE COLOR

PATCH IN HIS EYE WHEN HE

WAS A BABY.

AS HE GOT OLDER, THE WHITE

PATCH GREW BIGGER.

HE WOULD ALWAYS COVER

HIS EYE BECAUSE IT WOULD

HURT HIM SO MUCH.

SUNLIGHT ALSO IRRITATED IT

AND MADE IT DIFFICULT FOR

HIM TO WALK OUTSIDE.

SO WE WERE SCARED THAT HE

WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO SEE

OUT OF THAT EYE.

Reporter: BUT THEN A

CBN MEDICAL CAMP VISITED

THEIR VILLAGE.

THEY TOLD US THAT OUR

SON HAD A CATARACT, AND

THEY SAID THEY WOULD GIVE

HIM A FREE SURGERY.

Reporter: AT THE

HOSPITAL, THE DOCTOR

EXPLAINED THAT RAUL WAS

CLOSE TO LOSING VISION IN

HIS RIGHT EYE PERMANENTLY.

HE HAS A CATARACT.

THAT MEANS THE SURGERY

SHOULD BE PERFORMED AS

SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Reporter: RAUL'S

FATHER WAS WORRIED ABOUT

THE OUTCOME OF THE

SURGERY, BUT HE KNEW IT

WAS THE BEST CHANCE TO

SAVE HIS SON'S SIGHT.

THE CATARACT WAS

REMOVED AND A VERY

GOOD-QUALITY LENS WAS PUT

IN.

Reporter: THE NEXT

DAY THE BANDAGE WAS

REMOVED.

RAUL COULD SEE CLEARLY.

I'M EXTREMELY HAPPY

THAT MY BOY'S OPERATION

WENT WELL AND HIS EYE IS

PERFECTLY FINE.

NOW HE PLAYS A LOT

OUTSIDE WITHOUT ANY

DISCOMFORT.

AND HE REALLY LIKES TO

READ AND WRITE.

HE IS SO HAPPY.

IT IS SUCH A REMARKABLE

CHANGE.

I KNOW WHEN HE GROWS

UP, HE WILL BE ABLE TO

STUDY WELL, GET A GOOD

JOB, AND HAVE A BRIGHT

FUTURE.

Pat: JUST THINK OF

THAT, TO GIVE SOMEBODY

SIGHT.

YOU KNOW, THERE ARE SO

MANY DISEASES THAT CAUSE

CATARACT PROBLEMS, AND WE

CAN PROVIDE AN INNER

OCULAR LENS PO FOR ABOUT $90.

SO FOR A COUPLE HUNDRED

DOLLARS WE CAN GIVE SIGHT

TO SOMEBODY.

AND WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO

DO THAT.

I WAS OVER IN KYRZAKHSTAN

SOME YEARS AGO AND I

TALKED TO A NURSE, AND

THEY HAD TERRIBLE PROBLEMS

WITH CATARACTS BECAUSE THE

RUSSIANS WERE SHOOTING OFF

VARIOUS NUCLEAR DEVICES,

AND THE LITTLE KIDS WERE

GETTING CATARACTS.

I SAID, LOOK, WE CAN GET

AN IN OCULAR LENS FOR

ABOUT $90, AND SHE SAID,

WE CAN GET THEM FOR $50,

BUT THEY COULDN'T AFFORD

IT.

CAN YOU IMAGINE GIVING

SIGHTHEM SIGHT FOR $50.

IF YOU WANT TO

PARTICIPATE, AND I WANT

YOU TO, IT IS $20 A MONTH,

AND YOU CAN BE A "700

CLUB" MEMBER.

WE'VE GOT THIS D.V.D.

CALLED "HEAVEN," AND I

THINK YOU'LL LIKE IT

BECAUSE WE'VE GOT

TESTIMONIES OF PEOPLE WHO

HAVE BEEN THERE, HAVE COME

BACK, AND THEY TELL WHAT

IT IS LIKE.

WE HAVE A NOTED HEAD OF

CARDIOLOGY DOWN IN PALM

BEACH, WHO HAS PATIENTS,

AND HE RECORDS WHAT

HAPPENED TO HIS PATIENTS.

IT IS A TREMENDOUS THING,

AND WE'LL SEND IT TO YOU

IF YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

Wendy: SOMEBODY HAS

SEEN IT, HER NAME IS JAN.

AND SHE SAID, "IT IS SO

REASSURING.

HEAVEN IS HELPING ME

OVERCOME FEELINGS I'M NOT

GOOD ENOUGH, AND I COULD

WATCH IT FOR HOURS."

THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE

VIEWER FEEDBACKS.

WE HAVE SOME GREAT

QUESTIONS TODAY.

TERESA SAYS, "SINCE MY

HUSBAND AND I HAVE CHOSEN

TO FOLLOW CHRIST, MANY

TRIALS HAVE APPEARED.

OUR MARRIAGE HAS BEEN

TESTED, OUR FAITH HAS BEEN

TESTED, ALL OF THIS PLUS

FINANCIAL ISSUES.

BEFORE FINDING CHRIST, OUR

MARRIAGE WAS ROCKY, BUT WE

WERE DOING GREAT UP UNTIL

THE LAST TWO MONTHS.

WITH ALL OF THE STRESS,

I'M NOW FIGHTING PREVIOUS

ALCOHOL ADDICTIONS THAT I

THOUGHT WERE GONE.

PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND

WHAT IS HAPPENING?"

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

FIRST OF ALL, THE DEVIL

DOESN'T WANT TO HURT YOU

AS LONG AS YOU BELONG TO

HIM.

THE TIME COMES WHEN HE'LL

DESTROY YOU, BUT UP UNTIL

NOW HE WANTS YOU TO BE

HAPPY WITH HIM.

SO YOU'VE MOVED INTO

ANOTHER REALM, AND YOU'VE

MOVED OUT TO THE

ALLEGIANCE OF JESUS, AND

THE DEVIL WANTS TO GET YOU

BACK AND GIVE YOU TROUBLE

FOR DOING IT.

IN AVIATION, THERE IS A

BARRIER -- WE USED TO CALL

IT THE SOUND BARRIER,

WHERE YOU GET TO THE POINT

OF SPEED, AND THERE IS AN

INVISIBLE BARRIER THAT YOU

HAVE TO BREAKTHROUGH.

AND SO THE PLANE HAS TO GO

THROUGH THAT SOUND

BARRIER.

AND WHEN IT DOES, IT IS

BUFFETED.

IT SHAKES AND THEN ALL OF

A SUDDEN IT GOES THROUGH

AND EVERYTHING IS SMOOTH

AND GOOD.

THAT'S THE WAY IT IS WHEN

YOU MOVE INTO THE THINGS

OF THE LORD.

IT WILL BE A LITTLE ROCKY

UNTIL YOU GET THROUGH IT.

YOU OBVIOUSLY HAD SOME

ADDICTION PROBLEMS ALONG

THE WAY, SO YOU NEED TO

HOLD STEADY AND KNOW GOD

WILL BE WITH YOU.

HE WILL NOT HAVE YOU

TEMPTED ABOVE WHAT YOUR

ABLE, BUT WILL MAKE WITH

THE TEMPTATION A WAY OF

ESCAPE.

STAY WITH IT.

THE CLOSER YOU GET TO THE

LORD, THE MORE AND MORE

THESE INSECURITIES AND

TROUBLES -- USE YOUR MOUTH

AND BIND SATAN'S POWER.

SPEAK THE WORD AND SAY, I

BIND YOU AND I FORBID YOU

AND THE FORCES OF EVIL TO

HURT ME.

DO THAT.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Wendy: VIRGINIA SAYS,

"I'VE HEARD ABOUT THIS

CHIP THAT IS GOING TO BE

PUT IN PEOPLE IN 2017.

IS THIS FOR REAL?

BECAUSE IT IS KIND OF

SCARY. I DON'T WANT THAT

CHIP IN ME.

I'M A CHRISTIAN.

AND IF YOU TAKE THAT, ARE

YOU TAKING THE MARK OF THE

BEAST?

PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT IT."

Pat: THERE IS SO MUCH

JUNK THAT GOES AROUND THAT

PEOPLE CLAIM IS PROPHECY,

AND IT'S JUST NONSENSE.

I DON'T KNOW OF ANY CHIP

IN 2017.

THEY DO HAVE IMPLANTS THAT

ARE AVAILABLE TO IDENTIFY

PEOPLE.

AND THEY ARE PUTTING

THEM -- THEY CAN TATTOO ON

YOUR HAND AND SO FORTH.

SO THE TECHNOLOGY EXISTS,

BUT SOME KIND OF A

MANDATE, NO WAY THAT I'VE

HEARD OF.

Wendy: I HAVEN'T

HEARD OF THAT EITHER.

MARIE SAYS, "I WAS TOLD

THAT AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT

DENOUNCE THE HOLY SPIRIT

YOU WILL GO TO HEAVEN IN

SPITE OF YOUR LIFESTYLE.

THERE ARE NO SCRIPTURES TO

VALIDATE THIS, ARE THERE?"

Pat: NOT ANY I HAVE

READ.

THERE IS ONLY ONE THING

THAT WILL GET YOU TO

HEAVEN, AND THAT'S THE

GRACE OF THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST.

BY GRACE WE'RE SAVED,

THROUGH FAITH -- NOT OF

OURSELVES; IT IS A GIFT OF

GOD.

THERE IS ONLY ONE THING,

BELIEVE IN THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST.

ISN'T THAT WHAT PAUL SAID,

BELIEVE IN THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST AND YOU SHALL BE

SAVED.

BELIEVE IN THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST AND THAT'S IT.

YOU CAN DENOUNCE THE --

WHERE DO PEOPLE COME UP

WITH THIS STUFF?

Wendy: DAVID SAYS,

"ARE YOU WERE WER WE STILL UNDER THE 10

COMMANDMENTS?

THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS IF YOU

BREAK ONE OF THE

COMMANDMENTS, YOU'RE

GUILTY OF ALL."

Pat: WE'RE UNDER THE

GRACE, AND IT IS A

DIFFERENT THING.

ALL OF THE DIE DIETARY RULES

AND THINGS OF THE OLD

TESTAMENT DO NOT APPLY TO

PEOPLE WHO COME TO THE

LORD.

I DID A BOOK ON THE 10

COMMANDMENTS SHOWING WHY

IT APPLIES TO US TODAY.

IT IS VERY WISE.

ALL OF THOSE THINGS ABOUT

BEING OBEDIENT TO YOUR

PARENTS AND NOT COVETING

SOMEBODY'S POSSESSIONS AND

ALL OF THAT, AND DON'T

MURDER PEOPLE -- I MEAN,

THAT IS FOUNDATIONAL IN

OUR LAW.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE LAWS

AGAINST MURDER.

WE HAVE LAWS AGAINST

KIDNAPPING.

WE HAVE LAWS AGAINST

BEARING FALSE WITNESS.

IT IS BUILT INTO THE WORLD

FOR THE WAY WE LIVE.

SO YOU SAY, WELL, I'M NOT

UNDER THAT LAW.

WELL, IN A SENSE YOU ARE

BECAUSE IT IS THE MORAL

LAW OF THE UNIVERSE.

AND WE'RE ALL UNDER THAT.

> WELL, THANKS FOR THOSE

QUESTIONS.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME

WE'VE GOT.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER-MINUTE FROM PSALM

66: "WE WENT THROUGH THE

WATER, AND YOU BROUGHT US

TO A PLACE OF ABUNDANCE."

THAT'S A GOOD WORD FOR

TODAY.

TOMORROW, GOLDEN STATE

WARRIOR JAMES MACADU IS

GOING TO TALK ABOUT HIS

FAITH AND, OF COURSE, HIS

OUTSTANDING WORK ON THE

COURT.

BUT THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME

WE'VE GOT RIGHT NOW.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

GOOD-BYE AND GOD BLESS

YOU.
