Efrem: MEET A

101-YEAR-OLD HERO, AND SEE

HOW THIS MISTER ROGERS IS

BLESSING THIS

NEIGHBORHOOD.

PLUS...A MOTHER OF FOUR...

IT WAS LIKE AN

ELECTRICAL SENSATION THAT

WENT THROUGH MY BODY.

Efrem: ...IN

CRIPPLING PAIN FOR TWO

YEARS.

I QUIT DOING THE NORMAL

THINGS I ENJOYED DOING.

Efrem: HER SUPER

NATURAL HEALING ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

I KNEW WOULD SHE HAD

SPOKEN WAS DIRECTLY FOR

ME.

Terry: HELLO, AND

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE SO GLAD YOU JOINED

US.

ISRAEL HAS POWERFUL

ENEMIES AROUND THE WORLD,

BUT NOT ALL OF THEM USE

MILITARY WEAPONS.

SOME HAVE BEEN TRYING A

DIFFERENT TACTIC: ECONOMIC

AND CULTURAL WARFARE, AND

THE BATTLEFIELD IS

BUSINESSES, COLLEGE

CAMPUSES, COURTS, EVEN

CHURCHES.

BUT AS JOHN WAGGI REPORTS

FROM LOS ANGELES, ISRAEL'S

SUPPORTERS ARE FIGHT BACK.

Reporter: WHEN

JERUSALEM MAYOR BARCOT

TRIED TO ADDRESS A GROUP

OF STUDENTS AT SAN

FRANCISCO STATE, HE WAS

SHOT DOWN BY MEMBERS OF

THE GROUP THAT STANDS FOR

BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT, AND

SANCTION.

THEY ARE WAGING AN

ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL WAR

AGAINST ISRAEL.

THIS "STAND WITH US" CON

CONFERENCE IN LOS ANGELES

IS TO COUNTERTHE

ANTI-ISRAEL MOVEMENT.

IT IS ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES

AND SOCIAL MEDIA AND IN

THE GLOBAL ECONOMY.

SHIR, AN ISRAELI STUDENT,

WAS SHOUTED DOWN AND

CALLED A WAR CRIMINAL

WHILE SHE WAS SPEAKING AT

A UNIVERSITY IN TAMPA.

THEY WAITED OUTSIDE THE

CLASS.

AND WE HAD TO HAVE POLICE

ESCORT TO OUR CAR BECAUSE

THEY KEPT FOLLOWING US AND

CALLING US NAMES, AND HOW

CAN YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT?

YOU'RE A MURDERER.

IT REALLY, REALLY

HURTS.

YOU CAN SEE, I'M STANDING

HERE AND I'M A CIVILIZED

HUMAN BEING AND NOT A WAR

MACHINE.

Reporter: HE IS A

FORMER ISRAELI SOLDIER,

AND SAYS HE IS CONSTANTLY

CHALLENGED BY HALF TRUTHS

ABOUT ISRAEL BY HIS

FOREIGN FRIENDS ON SOCIAL

MEDIA.

AND HE WAS SHOUTED DOWN ON

CAMPUS BY B.D.S.

SUPPORTERS.

SHOUTING UP AND

SCREAMING, AND NOT EVEN

HAVING AN OPEN DISCUSSION.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOR

THEE BUT NOT FOR YOU,

THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE

SAYING ON CAMPUS.

Reporter: THIS MAN IS

ANGERED THAT THE FREEST

SOCIETY IN THE MIDDLE EAST

IS SINGLED OUT.

YOU'RE SEEING THE ONE

JEWISH STATE -- YOU'RE

PUTTING ALL OF THIS EVIL

TO THE ONE JEWISH STATE,

AND IT CAN'T HELP BUT

SPILL OVER TO JEWS ON

CAMPUSES.

NON-JEWISH ZIONISTS AND

CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS WHO

SUPPORT ISRAEL, THEY

BECOME THE FOCUS OF THIS

VITRIOL.

Reporter: AND SEVERAL

PROTESTANT CHURCHES ARE

INVOLVED IN THE B.D.S.

"WAR ON ISRAEL.

MOVEMENT ON ISRAEL.

"STAND WITH US" C.E.O.

ROSS ROSTIN SAYS SOME

CHURCH LEADERS HAVE BOUGHT

INTO A CAMPAIGN OF

DISINFORMATION THAT

DISTORTS THE TRUE PICTURE

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

OFTENTIMES IN NOT THE

PEOPLE IN THE PEWS WHO ARE

ANGRY AT ISRAEL.

IT IS THE PEOPLE IN

LEADERSHIP POSITIONS THAT

ARE MOVING IN THIS

DIRECTION, AND ON FALSE

INFORMATION.

Reporter: ROSTIN SAYS

SHE IS THANKFUL FOR THE

MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS WHO

DO SUPPORT ISRAEL.

I'M A DAUGHTER OF

HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS, AND

I'M PERSONALLY GRATEFUL TO

THE COMMUNITY FOR STANDING

SHOULDER TO SHOULDER WITH

THE STATE OF ISRAEL AND

THE JEWISH PEOPLE, ON

THESE VERY DIFFICULT

ISSUES DURING THESE B.D.S.

COMPAIGNS, SO THANK YOU.

Reporter: JO JOHN WAGGI,

CBN NEWS, LOS ANGELES.

Terry: I JUST WANT TO

SAY WE STAND STRONGLY WITH

ISRAEL, AND I KNOW YOU DO,

TOO.

PRAY.

PRAY FOR THE NATION.

PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE.

PRAY FOR ALL THAT IS GOING

ON OVER THERE RIGHT NOW,

AND FOR AN UNDERSTANDING

TO BECOME KNOWN TO PEOPLE

WHO ARE RALLYING AND

MAKING THESE STATEMENTS

AND ACCUSATIONS AND

COMMENTS THAT HAVE NO

KNOWLEDGE, NO TRUE

KNOWLEDGE, OF WHAT'S GOING

ON THERE.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, HOW

SAD IS IT, COLLEGE

CAMPUSES WITH NO OPEN

DIALOGUE?

THAT OUT TO BE AN

OXYMORON.

WHAT'S GOING ON, AMERICA?

> IN OTHER NEWS, SOCIAL

CONSERVATIVES RALLIED TO

SHOW THEIR SUPPORT FOR

NORTH CAROLINA'S NEW

BATHROOM LAW.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU

IN WASHINGTON.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

TERRY.

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS

RALLIED IN NORTH

CAROLINA'S CAPITAL,

CALLING ON THE GOVERNOR TO

STAND STRONG AGAINST

LIBERAL AND BUSINESS

OPPOSITION TO THE LAW.

THE MEASURE SAYS PEOPLE

MUST USE BATHROOMS, LOCKER

ROOMS, AND SHOWERS,

ACCORDING TO THEIR

BIOLOGICAL SEX AT BIRTH.

THE EVENT FEATURED

SPEAKERS BISHOP HARRY

JACKSON, FRANK TURICK, AND

BUSINESS OWNERS, THE

BENNOM BROTHERS.

WE THANK GOD FOR THE

FREEDOM WE HAVE IN THIS

COUNTRY.

AND IF WE'RE NOT WILLING

TO STAND NOW, 20 YEARS

FROM NOW, MY KIDS AREN'T

GOING TO BE ABLE TO STAND.

THEY'RE GOING TO GO TO

JAIL.

SO WE HAVE TO TAKE A

STAND.

THIS IS NOT A CIVILIZED

ISSUE!

[APPLAUSE]

IT'S ONE THAT IS TRYING

TO DOMINATE NUN ELSE.

IANOTHER GROUP.

John: CRITICS SAY THE

BILL IS DISCRIMINATORY

AGAINST TRANSGENDER

PEOPLE.

> THE BATTLE OVER NEXT

WEEK'S NEW YORK'S

PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY IS

GOING INTENSE.

TRUMP ESPECIALLY NEEDS A

VICTORY TO TRY TO AVOID A

CONTESTED REPUBLICAN

CONVENTION.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE BATTLE

FOR NEW YORK IS ON,

ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT

EXPECTED TO BE MUCH OF A

BATTLE.

SO WE HAVE AN

INCREDIBLE THING GOING.

WE'RE DOING AMAZINGLY

WELL.

NEW YORK IS VERY

IMPORTANT.

REMEMBER NEW YORK VALUES.

WE HAVE THE GREATEST

VALUES.

NOBODY HAS VALUES LIKE US.

I AM PROUD TO HAVE

REPRESENTED NEW YORK FOR

EIGHT YEARS.

I AM PROUD TO HAVE BEEN

SECRETARY OF STATE AND

GOING TO 112 COUNTRIES,

STANDING UP FOR OUR

VALUES.

Reporter: THE NEW

YORK PRIMARY TAKES PLACE A

WEEK FROM TODAY.

THE HOME STATE FOR BOTH

TRUMP AND CLINTON, AND

THEY'RE DOMINATING IN THE

POLLS.

A WELCOME SIGHT AFTER

DECISIVE LOSSES OVER THE

LAST TWO WEEKS.

TED CRUZ TRAILS KASICH AND

TRUMP.

AND CLINTON HOLDS A

12-POINT LEAD OVER BERNIE

SANDERS.

THERE IS POSSIBLE TROUBLE

FOR TRUMP IF HE DOES WIN

THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION

AND ENDS UP RUNNING

AGAINST CLINTON.

A NEW A.P. POLL SHOWS THAT

69% OF VOTERS HAVE A

NEGATIVE VIEW OF TRUMP.

BUT CLINTON HAS SOME

PROBLEMS OF HER OWN.

55% HAVE A NEGATIVE VIEW

OF HER.

MANY REPUBLICANS BELIEVE

TRUMP COULD GET A SOUND

BEATING IN NOVEMBER.

CRUZ WARNED VOTERS IF

TRUMP IS THE REPUBLICAN

NOMINEE, IT WILL BE A

BLOOD BATH FOR THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THE

GENERAL ELECTION.

FOR NOW, THE BLOOD BATH OF

NEGATIVE CAMPAIGNING AHEAD

OF THE GENERAL ELECTION IS

RUNNING FULL STEAM AHEAD.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

John: THANKS,

CAITLIN.

> THE MORE RESEARCHERS

LEARN ABOUT ZIKA VIRUS,

THE SCARIER IT APPEARS.

THE FEDERAL HEALTH

OFFICIALS AND URGING FOR

MORE GOVERNMENT MONEY FOR

MOSQUITO CONTROL TO

DEVELOP VACCINES AND

TREATMENT.

IT HAS BEEN LINKED TO

FETAL BRAIN DEFECTS AND

RARE NEUROLOGICAL PROBLEMS

FOR ADULTS.

THE CENTER WARNS PREGNANT

WOMEN TO TAKE EXTRA

PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID ZIKA

VIRUS.

THEY ARE USING FISH THAT

EAT MOSQUITO.

YOU CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT

HOW O.B. IS LEARNING TO

STOP ZIKA VIRUS, AND HOW

YOU CAN HELP BY GOING TO

THEIR WEBSITE AT ob.org.

> THE BIBLE IS ONE OF

THE MOST CHALLENGED BOOKS

AT SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

ARTHE REPORT SAYS SOME

PARENTS AND GROUPS

COMPLAIN LIBRARIES VIOLATE

THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH

AND STATE WHEN THEY PUT

BIBLES ON THEIR SHELVES.

BUT THE AMERICAN LIBRARY

ASSOCIATION SAYS THAT IS

NOT TRUE.

THE A.L. A.'S OFFICE SAYS

IT DOES NOT VIOLATE THE

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND

STATE AS LONG AS THE

LIBRARY DOES NOT ENDORSE

OR PROMOTE THE VIEWS OF

THE BIBLE.

THE A.L. A. ALSO

ENCOURAGES OTHER RELIGIOUS

BOOKS.

THEY DO HEAR COMPLAINTS

ABOUT THE QURAN, BUT FEWER

THAN THE BIBLE.

Terry: I DON'T KNOW,

JOHN.

IT IS LIKE WE HAVE LOST

OUR COMMON SENSE.

PUT ASIDE THE RIGHT OF

CHRISTIANS TO BE HEARD.

HOW ABOUT JUST REPORTING

THE BEGINNINGS OF OUR

NATION AS IT ACTUALLY

OCCURRED.

THE PEOPLE WHO WERE

LEADERS, PEOPLE OF STRONG

FAITH.

THE AMERICAN LIBRARY

ASSOCIATION, THANK YOU FOR

YOUR COMMON SENSE.

> COMING UP, WE MEET A

TRUE AMERICAN HERO, WHO

HAPPENS TO BE 101 YEARS

OLD.

I AM VERY PROUD OF MY

GRANDFATHER FOR WHAT HE

HAS DONE FOR THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA AND THE

ARMY.

Terry: FIND OUT MORE

ABOUT THIS SUPER SENIOR

AND HIS LIVING LEGACY.

THAT'S COMING UP NEXT.

WHAT'S THE

SECRET TO LIVING A LONG

LIVE?

IS IT DIET?

EXERCISE?

GENETICS, MAYBE?

THOSE COULD ALL PLAY THEIR

PART.

BUT JOHN JESSUP INTRODUCES

US TO ONE MAN WHO HAS A

SIMPLE PHILOSOPHY WHEN IT

COMES TO AGING.

AND AT AGE 101, HE SPEAKS

FROM A WEALTH OF

EXPERIENCE.

John: IN THE SUNNY

CITY OF ST. PETERSBURG,

WILLIAM ROGERS IS A BIT OF

A CELEBRITY.

WHEN I WAS A KID

GROWING UP, HE WALKED A

LOT.

Reporter: HE HOLDS

THE KEY TO THE CITY, AND

HIS BIRTHDAY PARTIES DRAW

CROWDS, INCLUDING

POLITICIANS, AND HIS

PORTRAIT PROMINENTLY HANGS

IN THE LOCAL HISTORY

MUSEUM.

BUT HE DESCRIBES HIMSELF

AS NO ONE SPECIAL.

A LESSON IN CHARACTER

DEVELOPMENT THAT HE AND

HIS SIBLINGS LEARNED EARLY

ON.

MY GRANDDADDY ON MY

DADDY'S SIDE, HE ALWAYS

TAUGHT ME AND ROY THAT

THERE AIN'T NOBODY BETTER

THAN YOU, AND YOU WEREN'T

NO BETTER THAN NOBODY

ELSE.

Reporter: TRUTH IS,

FEW HAVE LIVED A LIFE AS

REMARKABLE OR AS LONG AS

MR. ROGERS.

LAST MONTH FAMILY AND

FRIENDS THREW HIM A

SURPRISE PARTY TO

CELEBRATE HIS 101st

BIRTHDAY.

I JUST THOUGHT I WAS

GOING TO SEE MY SISTERS.

Reporter: LONGEVITY

RUNS IN THE FAMILY.

HIS YOUNGEST AND ONLY

SURVIVING SIBLING,

GERTRUDE, IS 92.

AGE DOESN'T SLOW DOWN THIS

SUPER SENIOR.

HE LIVES ON HIS OWN.

I WILL PUT MY SPIRIT

THERE.

Reporter: HE KEEPS

HIS MIND SHARP WITH DAILY

BIBLE READINGS AND STILL

GETS AROUND PRETTY WELL.

JUST ABOUT EVERY WEEK,

MISTER ROGERS WALKS A

BLOCK AND A HALF FROM HIS

APARTMENT TO ATTEND SUNDAY

SERVICES HERE AT THIS

BETHEL AME CHURCH.

HE HAS BEEN A RESIDENT OF

ST. PETERSBURG FOR 70

YEARS AND FOR A MAJORITY

OF THE TIME, HE HAS BEEN A

MEMBER OF THIS CHURCH.

ONE OF MY GREAT MENTORS

WHO HAS GONE ON TO BE WITH

THE LORD, SHE SAID, THAT

CHURCH -- MR. ROGERS GOES

TO THAT CHURCH.

Reporter: HE WAS BORN

DURING THE FIRST WORLD

WAR, SIX YEARS BEFORE

WOMEN COULD VOTE, AND WHEN

AMERICA'S POPULATION WAS A

THIRD OF WHAT IT IS TODAY.

HE HAS ALSO HELPED TO

BRING CHANGE BY SERVING

HIS COUNTRY DURING WORLD

WAR II AS PART OF THE

FAMOUS SEGREGATED MILITARY

UNIT, THE KESKEGEE GROUP.

ON A MISSION IN ITALY, HE

WAS CORNERED ABOUT ENEMY

FIRE AND SHOT IN THE

STOMACH BY GERMAN

SOLDIERS.

I SAID, WE GOING TO GET

KILLED ANYWAY.

I AIN'T GOING TO DIE NO

COWARD.

Reporter: AND HE

SURVIVED.

I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL

IN LONDON, ENGLAND, FOR

ABOUT THREE MONTHS.

Reporter: ONLY

RECENTLY DID HIS FAMILY

LEARN HIS UNKNOWN STORY.

HEARING THIS STUFF FOR

THE FIRST TIME, YOU KNOW,

IN THE BEGINNING IT WAS

LIKE, WHAT?

DADDY, REALLY?

BECAUSE HE NEVER SAID A

WORD.

Reporter: THROUGH

RESEARCH, THEY CONFIRMED

HIS STATUS AS A DOCUMENTED

ORIGINAL KESKEGEE AIRMAN.

THE AIRMEN HELPED WIN A

WAR.

AND THEY HELPED CHANGE OUR

NATION FOR THE BETTER.

Reporter: IN RECENT

YEARS, THEIR HEROICS,

SACRIFICES, AND ROLE IN

INTEGRATING THE MILITARY

AHEAD OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS

MOVEMENT HAVE BEEN

RECOGNIZED WITH A

CONGRESSIONAL GOLD MEDAL,

AND IN FILM.

HEAVENLY FATHER, WE

THANK YOU FOR THIS

GLORIOUS DAY.

WE ASK THAT YOU SEND YOUR

ANGELS DOWN TO SURROUND US

AS WE FLY THROUGH THE SKY.

ALTHOUGH I LOOK AT ALL

OF THOSE WHO HAVE GONE ON

BEFORE HIM WHO DIDN'T

RECEIVE THIS AWARD, HE IS

STANDING IN THE GAP FOR

THEM.

Reporter: AT 101, HE

IS STILL TEACHING LIFE

LESSONS.

HE IS SO GENEROUS.

THAT'S THE LESSON THAT I

HAVE FROM HIM, HOW

GENEROUS HE IS.

HE HAS TAUGHT ME, AND

MY SHORT TIME AS HIS

PASTOR, A GREATER SENSE OF

REVERENCE FOR PEOPLE.

HIS LOVE FOR PEOPLE AND

THE LORD IS A GREAT

MOTIVATOR FOR OUR YOUNG

PEOPLE.

Reporter: AND DESPITE

A 90-YEAR AGE GAP, HIS

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN SAY HE

IS PRETTY COOL.

GRANDDAD -- I CALL HIM

GRANDDADDY -- I THINK HE

IS A VERY FUN MAN.

I AM VERY PROUD OF MY

GRANDFATHER, FOR WHAT HE

HAS DONE FOR THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA AND THE

ARMY.

Reporter: SO WHAT'S

THE SECRET TO LONGEVITY?

HE SAYS IT IS LOVING GOD

AND LIVING BY THE GOLDEN

RULE.

STILL GOING STRONG, HE IS

NOW LOOKING FORWARD TO

102.

WE JUST WANT TO SEE HOW

MANY MORE HE CAN MAKE

BECAUSE THERE ARE NO SIGNS

OF SLOWING DOWN.

HE IS JUST MARCHING

FORWARD, AND WE JUST HAVE

TO TRY TO FOLLOW TO KEEP

UP.

Reporter: WHILE

WILLIE ROGERS MAY NOT BE A

HOUSEHOLD NAME, OR

MENTIONED IN THE HISTORY

BOOKS, ONE THING IS FOR

SURE...

I'M JUST TRYING TO LIVE

FOR MY HEAVENLY FATHER.

Reporter: ...HIS

LEGACY OF SERVICE AND

FAITH IS UNDENIABLE.

JOHN JESSUP, ST ST.

PETERSBURG, FLORIDA.

Terry:

CONGRATULATIONS, WILLIE

ROGERS.

I WANT TO TAKE A MINUTE TO

GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO MY

MOTHER-IN-LAW WHO TURNS

100 IN JUNE AND SKYPES

WITH MY HUSBAND EVERY DAY

ON HER NEW COMPUTER.

> UP NEXT, WE PULL BACK

THE CURTAIN ON THE SEX

TRADE FLOURISHING RIGHT

HERE IN AMERICA.

THE GIRLS, THEY WERE

FIRST SOLD INTO THE TRADE

AT AGE 11 OR 12 OR 13.

THE MESSAGE THEY'RE

SENDING IS, I KNOW YOU

CAME HERE TO WORK IN A

RESTAURANT, BUT YOU'RE

GOING TO BE WORKING IN THE

SEX TRADE.

Terry: MEET THE MANY

MAZING WOMAAMAZING WOMAN WHO IS GIVE

THESE GIRLS WHO WORK IN

THE SEX TRADE HOPE FOR

THEIR FUTURE.

Terry: THE STORY

YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE MAY

SHOCK YOU.

IT MAY SEEM UNBELIEVABLE

THAT GIRLS AS YOUNG AS 11

ARE BEING ENSNARED IN THE

SEX TRADE RIGHT HERE IN

THE UNITED STATES.

BUT THIS TRAVISTY IS ALL

TOO REAL.

THE GIRLS -- THEY WERE

FIRST SOLD INTO THE TRADE

AT AGE 11 OR 12 OR 13.

SHE WAS WORKING THERE 13,

14, 15 HOURS A DAY, DAY

AFTER DAY AFTER DAY.

THIS IS THE PART I WILL

NEVER FORGET.

SHE SAID: I DIDN'T KNOW

ANYONE KNEW WHAT WAS

HAPPENING TO ME.

THIS IS ONE OF SEVERAL

KOREAN BROTHELS ON THIS

ROAD.

WOMEN ARE USUALLY SOLD FOR

ABOUT $50 TO $100.

BASED ON ONLINE REVIEWS,

MEN WILL GO ON LINE AND

RATE THEIR ENCOUNTERS WITH

THESE WOMEN.

THIS LITTLE GIRL IS

FROM NEBRASKA.

HER FRIEND SET HER UP.

THIS BIG TRUCKER TOOK HER

TO DALLAS, AND THEN ONE OF

HER PARTNERS BROUGHT HER

DOWN TO HOUSTON AND WAS

TRAFFICKING HER.

SHE HAD A U. T.I. SO BAD

SHE COULD BARELY WALK WHEN

WE GOT HER, AND SHE WAS

UNDER AGE.

THE MESSAGE THEY'RE

SENDING IS, I KNOW YOU

CAME HERE TO WORK IN A

RESTAURANT, BUT YOU'RE

GOING TO BE WORKING IN THE

SEX TRADE.

NO ONE WAKES UP ONE DAY

AND SAYS, OH, I JUST WANT

TO GO TAKE MY CLOTHES OFF

AND GYRATE AND BE GROSS

AND IN SOME CASES SEXUALLY

ABUSED.

SPEND THE WEEKEND WITH

YOUR DAD'S FRIEND, OR GO

ACROSS THE STREET AND HE

IS GOING TO GIVE YOU

MONEY.

TWO OF THE THREE SURVIVORS

ON OUR STAFF WERE SOLD BY

THEIR PARENTS.

Terry: TAD FRENCH

HEADS UP A TEAM OF

PASSIONATE YOUNG PEOPLE

WHO ARE TRYING TO BRING

JUSTICE FOR TRAFFICKED AND

PROSTITUTED WOMEN THROUGH

PRAYER...

WE RAISE THEIR BONDS TO

YOU, O GOD.

Terry:

...AWARENESS...

THERE IS LOTS OF ADS

FOR PROSTITUTION AND

PURCHASING OF SEX IN THIS

AREA.

Terry: ...AND

INTERVENTION.

I GOT A CALL AT HAD

4:00 IN THE MORNING

SAYING, MY PIMP IS ASLEEP.

CAN YOU COME AND GET ME?

SHE EARNED $30,000 FOR HER

TRAFFICKER THAT SUMMER IN

HOUSTON, AND SHE GOT $71

WHEN HE BOUGHT HER IS NEW

PAIR OF SHOES.

WE GOT HER A BUS TICKET

BACK TO HER FAMILY IN

OHIO.

Terry: ELIJAH RIDING

IS PUTTING A STAMP ON THE

FIGHT TO END THE SEX TRADE

IN HOUSTON, AND HAVING

GREAT SUCCESS.

MORE THAN 7,000 PEOPLE

HAVE TAKEN THE MINISTRIES'

EYE OPENING TOURS.

YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THIS

STUFF LOOKS LIKE IT IS

TOTALLY CLOSED DOWN.

YOU TURN THIS CORNER, AND

THIS PARKING LOT WOULD BE

COMPLETELY FULL, YOU KNOW,

WEEKENDS, NIGHTS, AND

SOMETIMES EVENING NIGHTS.

THIS CLUB HAS 17 PAR 17

PARTITIONED ROOMS

UPSTAIRS.

Terry: THESE

EXPERIENCES HAVE PROMPTED

PRIVATE CITIZENS TO CREATE

AN UP ROAR THAT HAS LED TO

THE CLOSING OF SEVERAL

BROTHELS.

PEOPLE ALSO VOLUNTEER WITH

THE INTERVENTION TEAM,

MAKING CALLS, OFFERING A

WAY OUT.

ONE OF THEIR MOST

EFFECTIVE TOOLS: A

LIPSTICK WITH THE HOTLINE

NUMBER HIDDEN IN THE BAR

CODE.

THE OLDER FEMALE GOT UP

TO GO TO THE BATHROOM, AND

THE OUTREACH WORKER

SWOOPED IN AND SAID, DO

YOU NEED HELP.

AND THE YOUNG WOMAN PULLED

OUT THE LIPSTICK AND SAID,

I NEED SOMEONE TO CALL

THIS NUMBER.

AND IT WAS OUR NUMBER.

Terry: BUT THEY FACE

A BIGGER PROBLEM: HOW TO

HELP THOSE WHO ARE READY

TO BREAK FREE.

IT IS HARD BECAUSE THE

ONLY PLACE RIGHT NOW WE

HAVE TO PUT THEM IS

TEMPORARY, FOR A COUPLE OF

DAYS.

AND THEN WE HAVE TO FIND

THEM SOMETHING ELSE.

AND IT IS NOT EVEN

CONFIGURED FOR THIS.

IT IS FOR DOMESTIC ABUSE

VICTIMS.

THEY GET BORED AND SO THEY

CALL SOMEBODY WHO TAKES

THEM RIGHT BACK TO WHERE

THEY WERE.

MY LONG-TERM VISION IS

TO INNOVATE BECAUSE WE

NEED IT.

RECIDIVISM RATE IS 75%.

WE NEED SOMETHING NEW ON

THE HORIZON.

SO WHY NOT HERE?

WHY NOT US?

WHY NOT US?

WHY NOT NOW?

Terry: WITH THAT

PURPOSE IN MIND, "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" IS COMING

ALONGSIDE KAT AND HER TEAM

IN A NEW VENTURE.

AN 85-ACRE FARM OUTSIDE

HOUSTON.

ALREADY THEY'RE WORKING

HARD TO RENOVATE EXISTING

BUILDINGS, PREPARING A

PLACE FOR GIRLS, WOMEN,

AND THEIR CHILDREN TO COME

FOR HEALING AND

RESTORATION.

GIRLS WHO THINK NOBODY

COULD POSSIBLY LOVE THEM

AFTER WHAT THEY'VE DONE.

GIRLS WHO ARE ESTRANGED

FROM THEIR FAMILIES.

GIRLS WHO ARE SCARED AND

COULD EASILY RUN BACK TO

THE SEX TRADE BECAUSE IT

IS ALL THEY KNOW.

WHEN THEY COME HERE

THEY'LL HAVE A COMMUNITY.

BECAUSE, BELIEVE ME, SHE

DIDN'T GET INTO THE TRADE

ALONE.

SHE GOT INTO THE TRADE

WITH A CONSTELLATION OF

BAD PEOPLE AROUND HER.

WHEN SHE COMES HERE, SHE

IS GOING TO HAVE A

COMMUNITY.

Terry: SOME OF THE

INNOVATIVE CARE WILL

INCLUDE EQUINE PROGRAMS,

SELF-SUSTAINABILITY

PROJECTS, AND BASIC LIFE

SKILLS.

AND ONE OF THE BIG

THINGS IS, YOU'RE WORTH IT

TO LEARN THESE SKILLS THAT

YOU CAN ONLY DREAM FOR

YOUR FUTURE, BUT IT IS

ABSOLUTELY STILL POSSIBLE,

NO MATTER WHAT YOU HAVE

BEEN THROUGH.

IT DOESN'T TRUMP THE CALL

OF GOD ON YOUR LIFE.

Terry: THE

RESTORATION PROCESS AT THE

FARM IS DAUNTING AT TIMES,

SO IT IS ENCOURAGING TO

SEE THE COMMUNITY AND

LOCAL CHURCHES SUPPORTING

THE EFFORT.

A NEARBY NURSERY WILL

DONATE A PRAYER GARDEN.

A MEN'S GROUP FINANCED

BASIC SUPPLIES TO GET

TEMPORARY RUNNING WATER.

THE TRUCKS, THE HORSES,

DOMESTIC SUPPLIES, AND

MOST SATURDAYS A CREW OF

VOLUNTEERS.

TODAY WE'RE ACTUALLY

PLANTING A GARDEN.

MY HUSBAND IS HANGING SOME

BARN DOORS.

IT IS AMAZING TO GO TO THE

STREETS TO SEE MO WHO YOU ARE

IMPACT.

AND THEN ON THIS SIDE OF

IT TO SEE THAT WHEN -- NOT

IF -- BUT WHEN THE LORD

BRINGS THEM OUT OF THAT,

THAT THERE IS A PLACE LIKE

THIS.

IT IS VERY HUMBLING.

Terry: THE EVILS IN

THE HUMAN TRAFFICKING

INDUSTRY ARE UNSPEAKABLE,

AND THE ENEMY SEEKS TO

STEAL, KILL, OR DESTROY.

BUT WE ARE UNITED WITH

ELIJAH RISING AND

STEADFAST IN OUR

COMMITMENT TO BRING

HEALING, JUSTICE, AND

DELIVERANCE TO VICTIM OF

THIS TERRIBLE TRADE.

Terry: CAN I SAY THAT

THAT STORY WAS ABOUT WHAT

IS GOING ON IN HOUSTON.

BUT HOUSTON ISN'T THE ONLY

CITY IN THE UNITED STATES

WHERE THE SEX TRADE IS

FLOURISHING.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT WHAT KAT

FRENCH AND HER TEAM ARE

DOING IS IT IS NOT JUST

ABOUT AWARENESS.

WE ALL KNOW IT IS AN

ISSUE.

WE ALL KNOW IT IS A BLIGHT

ON OUR CULTURE, ON OUR

SOCIETY.

THEY'RE ACTIVELY DOING

SOMETHING TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE ON SO MANY

FRONTS.

AND BY STANDING UP AND

MAKING THEIR VOICES HEARD,

THEY HAVE ENLISTED

CHURCHES, PRIVATE

INDIVIDUALS, POLITICIANS,

GOVERNMENT AGENCIES.

EVERYBODY IS STANDING UP

AND SAYING, THIS WILL NOT

HAPPEN IN OUR COMMUNITY

WITHOUT A VERY BIG FIGHT.

SO THEY'VE GONE BEFORE US

WITH THEIR PASSION.

AND THEY'VE LEFT US WITH A

TEMPLATE.

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS SO

PROUD TO BE A PART OF WHAT

THEY'RE DOING DOWN THERE.

AND IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE A

PART OF HELPING US WITH

THAT PROJECT, ALL YOU NEED

TO DO IS LOG ON TO

cbn.com, OR YOU CAN CALL

OUR TOLL-FREE NUMBER:

1-800-759-0700.

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS

CBN'S OUTREACH TO ORPHANS

AND VULNERABLE CHILDREN

AND YOUNG PEOPLE AROUND

THE WORLD.

AND THESE ARE CERTAINLY

VULNERABLE YOUNG PEOPLE.

SO BE A PART OF MAKING A

DIFFERENCE.

DON'T JUST LOOK AND SHAKE

YOUR HEAD AND SAY, THAT'S

REALLY, REALLY TOO BAD.

STAND UP AND LET'S GO

TOGETHER AND LET'S REALLY

IMPACT THIS TERRIBLE

BLIGHT.

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

> WELL, COMING UP, A DAD

BEARS HIS SOUL ABOUT THE

MOST PAINFUL DAY IN HIS

LIFE.

WHEN OUR DAUGHTER WAS

JUST FOUR MONTHS OLD, SHE

WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A RARE

BRAIN DISORDER.

I REMEMBER MY WIFE AND I

FEELING SO OVERWHELMED

WITH PAIN, AGONY, AND

DEFEAT.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

SPECIAL CHILD IS NOW

LITERALLY MAKING HER MARK

ALL OVER THE THE WORLD.

Terry: HI, I'M TERRY

MEEUWSEN.

I'D LIKE TO TELL YOU ABOUT

AND WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

THE GOVERNMENT OF NEPAL

HAS REMOVED CHRISTMAS AS A

NATIONAL HOLIDAY, A MOVE

THAT PROMPTED PROTESTS

FROM CHRISTIANS IN THE

COUNTRY.

NEPAL FIRST RECOGNIZED

CHRISTMAS EIGHT YEARS AGO,

WHEN IT BECAME A SECULAR

STATE.

THE GOVERNMENT REMOVED IT

TO CONTROL THE NUMBER OF

HOLIDAYS ON THE CALENDAR.

BUT CHRISTIANS ARGUE IF IT

ISN'T A NATIONAL HOLIDAY,

WORKERS IN THE PRIVATE

SECTOR WILL NOT BE ABLE TO

CELEBRATE IT.

> A CATHOLIC HOSPITAL IN

DETROIT HAS WON A LAWSUIT

AGAINST ITS POLICY THAT

OPPOSES ABORTION.

THE LAWSUIT WAS FILED BY

THE AMERICAN CIVIL

LIBERTIES UNION.

A FEDERAL JUDGE DISMISSED

IT SAYING THAT THE ACLU

COULD NOT EXPLAIN HOW

TRINITY HEALTH

CORPORATION'S POLICY WOULD

RISK WOMEN'S LIVES.

THE RULING MEANS THE

HOSPITAL WILL NOT BE

FORCED TO PERFORM

ABORTIONS.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN ALWAYS

GET THE LATEST FROM CBN

NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT cbnnews.com.

TERRY WILL BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "700 CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: SEAN BEACH

REMEMBERS APRIL 10TH OF

2012 AS IF IT WERE

YESTERDAY.

HE AND HI WIFE HIS WIFE JULIE

REMEMBER IT AS DIAGNOSIS

DAY.

WHEN THEY WERE TOLD THEIR

FOUR-MONTH-OLD DAUGHTER

WOULD NEVER DEVELOPED PAST

FOUR MONTHS, AND SHE WOULD

NEVER WALK AND SHE WOULD

NEVER TALK.

I'LL NEVER FORGET WHEN

OUR DAUGHTER WAS JUST FOUR

MONTHS OLD.

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A

RARE BRAIN DISORDER.

I REMEMBER MY WIFE AND I

WERE SO OVERWHELMED.

THERE WAS PAIN, AGONY,

DEFEAT.

I REMEMBER THAT'S WHEN WE

REALLY FELT A SENSE THAT

WE COULD PUT ALL OF OUR

CONFIDENCE AND ALL OF OUR

HOPE IN JESUS.

AND WHEN WE PUT OUR HOPE

IN GOD, IT'S BECAUSE THE

EVIDENCE FOUND HIM TO BE

TRUTHFUL, TRUSTWORTHY, AND

LOYAL NO MATTER WHAT WE'RE

GOING THROUGH.

HOPE IS THE ARCHITECT, AND

FAITH IS THE BUILDING.

WE POSTED THIS PHOTO, THIS

INSTAGRAM, OF US.

FROM STRANGERS WE DON'T

KNOW TO CELEBRITIES TO

FAMILY MEMBERS, ALL TO SAY

WE'RE BELIEVING FOR THIS

GIRL TO BE HEALED, BUT

WE'RE ALSO BELIEVING FOR

OURSELVES.

I THINK IT SPEAKS TO THE

BOUGHT OF HUMANITY.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," THE

AUTHOR OF "UNREASONABLE

HOPE," CHAD BEACH.

BOY, CHAD, WHAT A BOOK.

WHAT A STORY.

WELL, THANK YOU.

Terry: I WANT YOU, IF

YOU WILL, TO TAKE A MOMENT

TO WALK US THROUGH

DIAGNOSIS DAY, AS YOU DO

IN THE BOOK, AND WHAT THAT

WAS LIKE FOR YOU AND

JULIA.

I THINK IT IS ONE THING

TO FIND OUT WHEN YOUR WIFE

IS PREGNANT, YOU CAN

PREPARE YOURSELF.

I THINK FOR US, THE CLIFF

WAS SUCH A TALL CLIFF TO

FALL OFF OF.

IT WAS SUCH A HIGH CLIFF

BECAUSE SHE WAS FOUR

MONTHS OLD.

SO YOU HAD ALL OF THE

EXCITEMENT OF NEW.

YOU'RE FIRST INSTAGRAM

POST WITH THE RIGHT

FILTER.

THE NEW OUTFITS, AND SHE

WAS BORN RIGHT BEFORE

CHRISTMAS, SO THE

CELEBRATION.

SO WE WERE REALLY EXCITED.

Terry: WELL, THERE IS

ALSO A HOPE OF WHAT IS TO

COME.

EXACTLY.

Terry: IT IS JUST

PART OF BEING A NEW

PARENT.

AND WE KIND OF NOTICED

SOMETHING WAS UP WITH THE

SONOGRAM.

Terry: BUT YOU DON'T

WANT TO SEE IT.

YEAH.

YEAH.

EXACTLY.

MY MOM WAS A LITTLE BIT

CAUTIOUS, GOING, HEY, YOU

NEED TO GO CHECK THIS OUT.

I THOUGHT SOMETHING WAS

WRONG WITH HER EYES.

I THOUGHT MAYBE THEY'LL

CORRECT IT OR PUT A PATCH

OVER HER EYE.

NEVER DID WE EVER IN A

MILLION YEARS FOR THEM TO

SAY, YOUR DAUGHTER'S BRAIN

IS NOT FORMED.

IT WAS A -- DIAGNOSIS DAY

WAS A DAY I WILL NEVER

FORGET.

THE ANNIVERSARY JUST

PASSED TWO DAYS AGO, AND

IT HAS BEEN FOUR YEARS.

I NEVER FORGET THE FEELING

OF ASKING GOD, WHAT AM I

GOING TO DO AS A HUSBAND,

AS A FATHER?

HOW DO WE FACE THIS.

EARLY ON, RIGHT FROM THE

BEGINNING, WE HAD TO MAKE

A DECISION: WE'RE GOING TO

PUT OUR HOPE IN GOD.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE ALL OF

THIS PAIN AND WE'RE GOING

TO PRAISE GOD THROUGH IT.

WE'RE GOING TO FIND HOPE

THROUGH IT.

I THINK HOPE IS THIS --

SOMETIMES IT CAN BE

ELUSIVE IN A WAY.

IT CAN BE A SECOND COUSIN

TO FAITH.

I FOUND HOPE TO BE THIS

CONFIDENT EXPECTATION.

NOT THAT MY DAUGHTER WOULD

BE HEALED ALONE, BUT I

HAVE HOPE IN A BETTER

PLACE, HEAVEN.

I HAVE HOPE IN A PERSON.

HIS NAME IS JESUS.

HOPE CAN'T DISAPPOINT US.

Terry: YOU KNOW, GOD

USES EVERYTHING --

EVERYTHING -- THINGS THAT

JUST LIFE THROWS AT US,

THINGS THAT THE ENEMY PUTS

IN FRONT OF US.

THIS HAS TRULY CHANGED HOW

YOU SEE OTHER PEOPLE, HOW

YOU FEEL THEIR PAIN?

ABSOLUTELY.

I DIDN'T REALIZE OTHER

PEOPLE WERE IN PAIN UNTIL

I HAD PAIN.

AND THEN ONCE WE FACED

THIS, MY EYES WERE OPEN.

I STARTED TO LOOK AROUND,

GOING, OH, MY GOSH, PEOPLE

ARE SUFFERING.

IT CHANGES YOUR SENSE OF

COMPASSION.

Terry: IT'S JUST

DIFFERENT.

YOUR SYMPATHY, YOUR

RELATABILITY.

IT CHANGES YOU ON THE

INSIDE.

I OFTEN SAY, I WOULDN'T

TRADE THIS FOR ANYTHING.

IT HAS MADE US BETTER

PEOPLE.

Terry: YOU KNOW, WE

TALKED ABOUT DIAGNOSIS

DAY, AND YOU ALL HEARING

THIS STORY MIGHT SAY,

OKAY, SO THEIR CHILD WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH THIS

CONDITION.

BUT TALK ABOUT SEIZURE DAY

BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT

STARTED TO CHANGE YOUR

LIFE.

IT'S ONE THING TO HAVE

THIS DIAGNOSIS, AND YOU GO

HOME AND YOU'VE GOT TO

FACE THAT.

BUT SOME PEOPLE HAVE

EVENTS -- YOU KNOW, A CAR

ACCIDENT OR SOMETHING

HAPPENS.

WE HAD TO CONTINUALLY FACE

OUR STORM.

THE SEIZURES STARTED TO

COME.

WHERE SOME DAYS THERE WERE

10, AND SOME DAYS UP TO 50

SEIZURES IN ONE DAY.

WE STARTED TO REALIZE LIFE

IS NOT GOING TO BE NORMAL

FOR US ALL OF THE TIME.

SO WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

LEARN HOW TO COMBAT THIS

AND SMILE THROUGH IT AND

HELP HER.

Terry: TALK ABOUT HOW

YOU DID THAT.

YOU AND JULIA ARE BOTH

CHRISTIANS.

IT IS SO EASY TO QUOTE

SCRIPTURES ABOUT FAITH AND

TO SAY I HAVE HOPE.

BUT WHEN YOU'RE IN THE

TRENCHES, THAT'S ANOTHER

STORY.

YEAH.

YEAH.

YEAH.

I THINK THE FIRST THING WE

HAD TO DO IS SAY, THE

STRUGGLE IS REAL.

I DON'T THINK GOD CAN WORK

WITH THE FAKE US.

HE WANTS TO WORK WITH THE

REAL US.

Terry: AND HE

UNDERSTANDS.

HE DOES.

GOD DESIRES TRUTH IN OUR

INNERMOST PARTS.

WE HAD TO BE HONEST.

THIS IS FRUSTRATING.

HIS HURTS.

THIS IS NOT EASY.

Terry: AND YOU HAD TO

WORK THROUGH HOW YOU, AS A

COUPLE, ARE GOING TO

HANDLE THIS.

I LOVE THE STORY WHERE

JULIA COULDN'T SLEEP, AND

SHE SAID, I NEED TO KNOW

IF SHE DIES IN A SEIZURE,

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BLAME

ME.

ABSOLUTELY.

WHAT WE LEARNED IS GOD IS

HONEST.

AND HE LOVES OUR HONESTY.

JULIA AND I HAVE LEARNED

TO BE HONEST WITH EACH

OTHER, AND TO BE HONEST

WITH GOD.

AND THAT BRINGS A PEACE IN

ITSELF.

I DON'T WANT TO JUST QUOTE

A BUNCH OF SCRIPTURES AND

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES FROM

SOCIAL MEDIA.

I HAVE TO BE HONEST WITH

HOW I FEEL.

THEN I CAN RESOLVE IN MY

HEART, EVEN THOUGH I FEEL

THIS WAY, I KNOW TRUTH AND

GOD IS REAL AND HE IS

HERE.

Terry: AND HE DIDN'T

CAUSE THIS.

HE DIDN'T CAUSE IT.

Terry: THAT'S THE

FIRST THING THAT COMES TO

MIND, GOD, WHY DID YOU DO

THIS?

I DON'T THINK GOD WAS

IN HEAVEN WITH HIS ARMS

FOLDED, GOING LET'S SEE

HOW YOU CAN HANDLE THIS.

I DON'T BELIEVE SICKNESS

IS FROM GOD.

WE LIVE IN A FALLEN

UNIVERSE.

THESE THINGS HAPPEN.

AND THAT'S WHY WE WROTE

THE BOOK.

BECAUSE A SICK DAUGHTER

COULD HAPPEN, A DIVORCE

COULD HAPPEN.

THESE THINGS HAPPEN.

HOW ARE WE GOING TO

OVERCOME THEM?

HOW ARE WE GOING TO GET

BETTER?

HOW ARE WE GOING TO ALLOW

GOD TO TAKE THIS PAIN AND

TURN IT AROUND FOR A

PURPOSE?

Terry: ONE OF THE

THINGS YOU DISCOVERED IN

ALL OF THIS IS THE AMAZING

SUPPORT OF PEOPLE YOU

DIDN'T EVEN KNOW.

I WANT YOU TO TALK ABOUT

THE "G".

IT'S AMAZING.

THIS "G," THIS PINK "G,", PINK "G."

MY FRIEND SAID, I'M

GETTING A TATTOO FOR YOUR

DAUGHTER.

AND I GO, IF YOU'RE

GETTING A TATTOO, I'M

GETTING A TATTOO.

WE POSTED THIS PHOTO, ME

AND MY BUDDY, AND WE

NEVER, IN A MILLION YEARS,

ANTICIPATED WHAT COULD

HAPPEN FROM HERE.

AND PEOPLE STARTED GETTING

THIS TATTOO.

Terry: AND PEOPLE

WERE STANDING WITH YOU,

AND SAYING, EVERY TIME WE

SEE THE TATTOO, WE'RE

GOING TO PRAY IN

CONJUNCTION TO YOU.

I WILL FIND PEOPLE ON

SOCIAL MEDIA SAYING, I

LOST MY AUNT TO CANCER,

AND THIS IS FOR MY AUNT,

THIS "G." IT'S A SYMBOL.

IT'S A SYMBOL OF HOPE.

IT IS A SYMBOL OF GOD'S

GRACE AND LOVE.

I PRAY THAT GOD WOULD USE

GEORGIA WHEN JULIA WAS

PREGNANT WITH HER.

WE'RE SEEING OUR DAUGHTER

USE HER SICKNESS TO BRING

HOPE AROUND THE WORLD.

Terry: WHICH IS

ANOTHER WILD AFFIRMATION

THAT HE HAS US.

WE ARE TATTOOED ON THE

HAND OF GOD FOREVER AND

EVER.

WHAT A TRUTH.

THAT GOD HAS ENGRAVED US

IN HIS HANDS.

NOT ON HIS SHOULDER

BLADES.

NOT ON HIS ARMS OR BICEPS.

HE PUT US IN HIS HANDS TO

PROVE HIS LOVE FOR US.

I DON'T THINK THAT SCREAMS

LOVE -- IT IS SCREAMS LOVE

MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

Terry: YOU CAN READ

ALL ABOUT JORIA GOR GEORGIA, THE

IMPACT SHE IS MAKING.

YOU CAN FIND THIS BOOK

WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD.

I CAN'T RECOMMEND IT

ENOUGH.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: WHAT A STORY.

YOU'VE GOT SUCH PASSION.

IT'S GREAT.

> UP NEXT, A MOTHER OF

FOUR WHO HERSELF WAS IN

CRIPPLING PAIN FOR TWO

YEARS.

I STARTED EXPERIENCING

A SHOOTING PAIN THAT WENT

DOWN MY LEGS AND UP MY

SPINE WHEN I WALKED.

SO WITH EVERY STEP I TOOK,

IT WAS REALLY PAINFUL.

Terry: SEE HOW THAT

PAIN VANISHED IN AN

INSTANT.

THAT STORY IS COMING UP.

Terry: TERRY CARTER

LOVES TO GET OUTSIDE AND

ENJOYS BEING ACTIVE WITH

HER FOUR CHILDREN.

BUT A YEAR AGO, THIS WAS

IMPOSSIBLE FOR HER BECAUSE

WITH EVERY STEP SHE TOOK,

KERRY WAS IN TREMENDOUS

PAIN.

Reporter: WHEN KERRY

CARTER HAD HER FOURTH

CHILD, HE DECIDED IT WAS

TIME TO LEAVE NURSING AND

BE A STAY-AT-HOME MOM.

I WORKED DURING THE

PREGNANCY WITH MY FOURTH

CHILD, AND AFTER SHE WAS

BORN, I WENT HOME, LIKE

NORMAL.

IT WAS A NORMAL DELIVERY.

NOTHING OUT OF THE

ORDINARY AS FAR AS THE

DELIVERY.

NO COMPLICATIONS.

Reporter: BUT IT

WASN'T LONG BEFORE HER

BACK STARTED HURTING.

RIGHT AFTER THE BIRTH,

IT WAS JUST A DULL ACHE.

AND I JUST ASSOCIATED THAT

WITH CHILDBIRTH.

AND I THOUGHT THAT IT

WOULD JUST CLEAR UP.

Reporter: INSTEAD, IT

GOT WORSE.

I STARTED EXPERIENCING

A SHOOTING PAIN THAT WENT

DOWN MY LEGS AND UP MY

SPINE WHEN I WALKED.

SO WITH EVERY STEP I TOOK,

IT WAS LIKE THIS

ELECTRICAL SENSATION THAT

WENT THROUGH MY BODY THAT

WAS REALLY PAINFUL.

Reporter: SHE AND HER

HUSBAND WERE NOW ON ONE

INCOME.

SHE DIDN'T THINK SHE

SHOULD PURSUE TREATMENT.

I KNEW THAT X-RAYS

WOULD BE EXPENSIVE, AND AT

THE TIME, BECAUSE I WAS

STAYING HOME AND TAKING

CARE OF THE KIDS, AND WE

WERE A ONE-INCOME FAMILY,

WE COULDN'T AFFORD THE

EXTRA EXPENSE FOR THAT.

Reporter: FOR TWO

YEARS, KERRY ENDURED PAIN.

NOTHING HELPED.

THE PAIN CHANGED MY

LIFESTYLE BECAUSE I QUIT

DOING THE NORMAL THINGS I

ENJOYED DOING.

I QUIT TAKING THE KIDS OUT

FOR A WALK WITH THE

STROLLER.

I DIDN'T WANT TO RUN

AROUND WITH OUR

2-YEAR-OLD.

I HAD BEGUN TO REALLY

START SEEKING THE LORD

ABOUT HEALING IN

PARTICULAR BECAUSE IN MY

HEART I KNEW IT WAS GOD'S

WILL TO HEAL.

Reporter: SHE ALSO

WATCHED "THE 700 CLUB"

ALMOST EVERY DAY.

ON JUNE 12, 2015, TERRY

GAVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE,

LIKE, A SPINAL PROBLEM.

I'M NOT SURE WHAT IT IS,

IF IT IS AN ALIGNMENT

ISSUE.

THERE IS TREMENDOUS PAIN

EVERY TIME YOU WALK.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

I KNEW THAT WHAT SHE

HAD SPOKEN WAS DIRECTLY

FOR ME.

AND I COULD TELL

IMMEDIATELY.

I STOPPED HAVING THE PAIN

WITH WALKING.

I'VE BEEN PAIN-FREE EVER

SINCE.

I AM BACK TO MY NORMAL

LIFTING THINGS THAT I

COULDN'T DO BEFORE.

Reporter: MOST

IMPORTANTLY, SHE CAN DO

THE THINGS SHE LOVES,

ESPECIALLY TAKING CARE OF

HER CHILDREN.

GOING FOR WALKS,

ENJOYING THE OUTDOORS AND

BEING WITH THE KIDS.

MOTHERHOOD IS THE THE BEST

THING.

IT REALLY IS.

IT IS A BLESSING.

I'M VERY THANKFUL AND VERY

GRATEFUL.

HE KNOWS WHAT YOUR NEED IS

AND HE IS WILLING TO MEET

IT AND MEET YOU RIGHT

WHERE YOU'RE AT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO

ANYTHING SPECIAL.

YOU JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE.

Terry: I LOVE KERRY'S

STORY.

WHEN I HEAR ALL SHE HAS

GONE THROUGH, I THINK OF

THE SCRIPTURE THAT SAYS,

JESUS CAME THAT WE MAY

HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT

ABUNDANTLY.

THIS IS JEAN WHO LIVES IN

FRATA, PENNSYLVANIA.

SHE DEVELOPED EXCRUCIATING

PAIN ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF

HER BODY.

AND SHE SUFFERED FROM

NAUSEA AND VOMITING.

THAT PAIN CONTINUED FOR

THREE DAYS, UNTIL SHE

DECIDED TO CALL "THE 700

CLUB" FOR PRAYER.

YOU CAN DO THAT, YOU KNOW.

AFTER SHE HUNG UP THE

PHONE, SHE NOTICED THAT

ALL OF THE PAIN HAD

DISAPPEARED.

JEAN HAS BEEN PAIN-FREE

SINCE.

> WE WANT TO STAND WITH

YOU TODAY, IN YOUR PLACE

OF NEED, RIGHT NOW, IN

THIS MOMENT.

AND LET'S PRAY.

LET'S GO TO THE LORD AND

SAY, YOU ARE THE HEALER.

YOU ARE THE REDEEMER.

YOU ARE ALL POWERFUL.

YOU KNOW ME INSIDE AND

OUT.

YOU'RE IN MY TOMORROW.

AND LET'S ASK HIM TO DO

SOMETHING MIRACULOUS FOR

YOU TODAY.

JESUS, YOU TOOK OUR PAIN

UPON YOU.

BY YOUR STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

YOU DID IT ALL.

AND EVERYONE WHO CAME TO

YOU, YOU HEALED.

EVERYONE WHO CAME TO YOU,

YOU TOUCHED THEM.

AND SO TODAY, GOD, WE'RE

COMING TO YOU IN FAITH.

AND WE'RE SAYING, WILL YOU

TOUCH US?

WILL YOU SEND FORTH THAT

HEALING POWER THAT ONLY

YOU HAVE?

AS WE REACH UP TO YOU,

YOU'VE PROMISED THAT

YOU'RE REACHING BACK DOWN

TO US.

SO TODAY, GOD, SPEAK INTO

THE VERY POINT OF OUR

NEED.

TEACH US AND TELL US MORE

OF WHO YOU ARE.

HEAL US, WE PRAY.

HEAL US.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU HAVE

A CHRONIC -- LIKE A MUSCLE

CONDITION IN YOUR NECK AND

YOUR HEAD.

IT'S LIKE EVERYTHING IS

DISCONNECTED THERE.

NOT PHYSICALLY, BUT THINGS

AREN'T HAPPENING IN YOUR

BODY THE WAY THEY'RE

SUPPOSED TO ON BRAIN

IMPULSES.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS SETTING

THAT ALL BACK IN ORDER.

HE IS YOUR CREATOR.

HE UNDERSTANDS HOW YOU'RE

FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY

MADE.

JUST RECEIVE THAT FROM HIM

RIGHT NOW.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE --

YOU HAVE LIKE A CHRONIC

SWEATING CONDITION.

BUT, I MEAN, IT IS REALLY

CHRONIC.

YOUR HANDS AND YOUR

FEET -- IT'S JUST

EVERYWHERE.

IT IS SO LIFE INTERRUPTING

FOR YOU.

GOD IS RIGHT TOGETHE RIGHTING THAT IN

YOUR BODY RIGHT NOW.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

SOMEBODY ELSE, YOU'VE HAD

AN APPENDIX ATTACK, AND

YOUR BODY IS TRYING TO GET

RID OF ALL OF THE TOXINS.

RIGHT NOW LORD IS HEALING

YOU.

RECEIVE GOD'S HEALING.

THANK YOU, GOD, THAT YOU

SEE US IN OUR NEED AND YOU

SO LOVE US AND WANT TO USE

EVERY ASPECT OF IT.

TEACH US TO WALK WITH YOU

DAILY.

IN JESUS' NAME WE PRAY.

AMEN.

I WANT TO SAY TO YOU, OUR

TO YOU.

AND JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING

YOU'RE DEALING WITH IN

YOUR LIFE ISN'T SAID ON

THIS PROGRAM OR MENTIONED

WE'RE JUST SHARING WHAT

GOD SHARES WITH US.

BUT HIS POWER IS AVAILABLE

TO US.

> IN APRIL OF 2014, A

COLLEGE STUDENT FROM

VANCOUVER WAS KIDNAPPED AT

GUN-POINT AND FORCED INTO

HIS OWN CAR.

OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF

DAYS, HE WAS BEATEN AND

THREATENED, AND HELD FOR A

LARGE RANSOM.

IT TOOK MORE THAN A WEEK

FOR THE POLICE TO RESCUE

HIM.

BUT SINGER BOSCO PALM KNEW

WHERE HE WAS ALL ALONG.

Reporter: BASS BOS CCO PALM

GREW UP A SHY IMMIGRANT.

AND A GANG DREW HIM IN.

BUT BOSCO HAD A DREAM: TO

BECOME A MUSICIAN.

HE LEFT HIS FRIENDS AND

MOVED TO ANOTHER CITY TO

PURSUE A MUSIC CAREER.

I WAS SO DETERMINED

THAT I WANTED TO ENTER

INTO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY.

Reporter: TWO YEARS

LATER, HIS OLD FRIENDS

CALLED HIM WITH AN OFFER

TO MAKE SOME QUICK CASH.

RENT HIM A VACANT HOUSE

HIS PARENTS OWNED, NO RENT

AND NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

HE SOON FOUND OUT THEY

KIDNAPPED A GUY AND KEPT

HIM IN THE BASEMENT.

THEY WERE LIKE ANIMALS.

I STRUGGLED IN MY HEAD,

SHOULD I RUN DOWN THERE

AND UNTIE HIM AND GET HIM

TO THE POLICE STATION?

ALSO IN THE BACK OF MY

MIND, THERE WAS A FEAR

CONSTANTLY TELLING ME,

WHAT IF THEY FIND OUT I

LET THE GUY GO AND THEY

TURNED THEIR RAGE ON ME?

IT WAS THEN I REALIZED,

WHAT HAVE I DONE?

Reporter: WITHIN A

WEEK, THE POLICE HAD

TRACKED DOWN AND ARRESTED

THE KIDNAPPERS, INCLUDING

BOSCO.

I WAS PUT INTO THE

POLICE CAR AND THEN INTO

THE WAGON.

LOOKING AT MY PARENTS

SOBBING.

LOOKING AT ALL OF THE

NEIGHBORS POKING THEIR

FINGERS AT ME.

Reporter: BOSCO WAS

CONVICTED TO HIS PART IN

THE KIDNAPPING AND

SENTENCED TO 12 YEARS.

HE ENTERED PRISON SCARED

AND ALONE.

I WAS, LIKE, HOW CAN I

SURVIVE IN HERE?

IT WAS FULL OF VIOLENCE,

DRUGS, DEPRAVITY, BROKEN

HEARTS, PAIN, SCREAMING,

CRYING.

SO I DID A LOT OF TIME TO

REFLECT ON STUFF, WHICH I

NEVER DID BEFORE.

Reporter: THE REALITY

OF HIS SITUATION HIT HIM

HARD.

I WAS SOBBING, CRYING

OUT TO GOD.

I WAS, LIKE, LORD, ARE YOU

REAL?

WELL, IF YOU ARE REAL, CAN

YOU TALK TO ME?

BECAUSE I HAVE NOBODY

ELSE.

AND THEN THIS SCRIPTURE

CAME TO ME.

JESUS SAID: "I AM ALWAYS

WITH YOU, UNTIL THE END OF

THE AGE."

I CLAIMED THAT SCRIPTURE.

I WAS, LIKE, LORD, TALK TO

ME IF YOU'RE REAL BECAUSE

I REALLY NEED SOMEONE TO

TALK TO RIGHT NOW.

MY HEART WAS FULLY READY

TO RECEIVE GOD AND TO HAVE

A REAL RELATIONSHIP WITH

HIM.

Reporter: BOSCO

SURRENDERED HIS LIFE TO

JESUS.

A FEW WEEKS LATER, WHILE

IN PRAYER, HE HAD AN

INCREDIBLE VISION.

I SAW A CLOUD OF WHITE

LIGHT COMING DOWN FROM

HEAVEN.

AND THEN THIS LIGHT WAS

GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER

TO ME, UNTIL IT REACHES

INTO MY HEART.

IT LIFTED UP MY HEART AND

I WAS, LIKE, ELECTROFIED.

AND ALL I COULD HEAR WAS A

VOICE: DON'T BE AFRAID.

I AM YOUR LORD.

AND I WILL RESCUE YOU.

EVER SINCE THAT

EXPERIENCE, I TALK TO HIM

LIKE I TALK TO YOU RIGHT

NOW, EVERY DAY, WHILE I'M

IN PRISON.

AND HE JUST OPENED UP MY

SPIRITUAL EARS.

HE HAS EXPERIENCED THE

POWER OF GOD IN HIS LIFE.

SOMETHING CHANGED IN

HIM THAT CAUGHT HIM ON

FIRE.

HE WAS ALWAYS TALKING TO

SOMEBODY ABOUT THE LORD.

OR HE WAS COMING INTO MY

OFFICE AND SAYING, CAN WE

PRAY FOR SO AND SO.

THE LORD CHALLENGED ME

ONE DAY TO PRAY FOR MY

ENEMIES.

TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, I

DID NOT WANT TO DO THAT.

I WAS, LIKE, NO, LORD.

IT IS TOO HARD.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, TAKE MY

LOVE AND DO IT.

MY LOVE IS SO MUCH BIGGER

THAN YOURS.

FOCUS YOUR EYES ON ME AND

TRY TO DO IT.

WHEN I DID THAT, EVEN WITH

TEARS STREAMING AND COMING

DOWN FROM MY EYES, WHILE I

WAS PRAYING FOR ALL OF MY

ENEMIES, I FOUND FREEDOM.

GOD RESCUED ME FROM

HATRED.

Reporter: BOSCO

SERVED FOUR YEARS BEHIND

BARS.

HE IS OUT OF PRISON, ON

PAROLE.

TODAY HE IS SURROUNDED

WITH A NEW GROUP OF

FRIENDS, INCLUDING

CHRISTIAN RECORDING ARTIST

BRIAN DIRKSON.

HE SHARES HIS TESTIMONY

AND MUSIC WITH OTHERS,

HOPING THEY WILL MEET

JESUS, AS HE DID.

THE SAME JESUS WHO

REVEALED HIMSELF TO ME,

THE SAME JESUS THAT HAS

RESCUED ME, IS THE SAME

JESUS THAT CAN COMFORT ANY

ONE OF US OUT THERE.

I ONLY LIVE FOR JESUS

BECAUSE HE SAVED ME.

HE GAVE ME LIFE.

HE SHOWED ME SO MANY

THINGS.

HE IS THE SOURCE OF MY

LIFE.

AND HE IS MY LORD AND MY

SAVIOR.

Terry: I HOPE THE

MESSAGE THAT YOU'VE GOTTEN

FROM OUR TIME TOGETHER

TODAY IS HOPE.

HOPE.

IF YOU ARE IN DARKNESS, IF

YOU ARE ALONE, IF YOU ARE

IN PAIN, IF YOU HAVE

SUFFERED GREAT LOSS, IF

YOU HAVE MADE TERRIBLE

MISTAKES IN YOUR LIFE,

GOD'S HAND IS ALWAYS

REACHING DOWN TO YOU.

HIS LOVE ALWAYS WANTING TO

TOUCH YOUR LIFE, TO CHANGE

YOU AND MAKE THINGS BETTER

BECAUSE HE IS THE GIVER OF

LIFE.

HE IS THE ONE WHO CREATED

YOU WITH A PLAN AND A

PURPOSE. DON'T MISS OUT

ON IT.

IF YOU'RE STRUGGLING WITH

THINGS IN YOUR LIFE, TURN

TO HIM.

WHEN THE WORLD WALKS AWAY,

HE IS STILL THERE.

I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU OR

FORSAKE YOU IS HIS

PROMISE.

INVITE HIM INTO YOUR PAIN,

INTO YOUR HOPELESSNESS

RIGHT NOW.

HE IS REAL.

HE WILL SPEAK TO YOU, JUST

LIKE HE SPOKE TO BOSCO.

JUST LIKE HE SPOKE TO

KERRY.

JUST LIKE HE SPOKE TO CHAD

AND JULIA BEACH.

YOU SEE, HE IS OUR FATHER.

HE IS OUR A ABBA DADDY, AND

HE LOVES YOU VERY, VERY

MUCH.

HOW DOES ALL OF THIS

HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE?

IT BEGINS WITH YOU

ACKNOWLEDGING THAT YOU'RE

A SINNER IN NEED OF A

SAVIOR.

THAT GOD PROVIDED THAT IN

HIS SON, JESUS.

RIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE OF

YOUR MESS AND BLESS YOU,

ASKING.
