OUR RADAR.

THEY'RE JUST GETTING

STARTED.

STAR.

I WAS NAMED ONE OF

MAXIM'S TOP 10 HOTTEST

PORN STARS.

ONE DAY SHE IS

STRIPPING, THE NEXT PY.

STEP FURTHER.

HEAR WHY THIS ADULT

ACTRESS LEFT THE INDUSTRY

FOR GOOD.

AND I STARTED CRYING.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WHY WON'T THE PRESIDENT

NAME IT?

WHY WILL HE NOT NAME THE

ENEMY?

WHY WILL HE NOT NAME THEM?

WHY WILL HE NOT MENTION

RADICAL ISLAM?

HE WON'T DO IT?

WHY?

TERRY?

Terry: NOT ONLY IS HE

NOT NAMING THEM, BUT THE

ISSUE HAS BEGUN GUN

CONTROL.

TRUMP WANTS TO GO FURTHER

ON HIS BAN ON IMMIGRATION,

BUT DEMOCRATS ARE CALLING

FOR TOUGHER GUN CONTROL

LAWS.

INVESTIGATORS ARE STILL

FINDING MORE CLUES BEHIND

THE THAT SLAUGHTER, BY A

MAN WHO THE F.B.I. ONCE

WATCHED CLOSELY.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE F.B.I.

SAYS 29-YEAR-OLD OMAR

MATEEN APPEARS TO BE A

HOME-GROWN EXTREMIST, AND

SAYS THERE IS NO EVIDENCE

THAT THE ATTACK WAS

DIRECTED FROM THE MIDDLE

EAST.

I DON'T SEE ANYTHING IN

REVIEWING OUR WORK THAT

OUR AGENTS SHOULD HAVE

DONE DIFFERENTLY.

Reporter: BUT WHY WAS

THE KILLER ALLOWED TO WALK

INTO THIS GUN STORE AND

BUY FIREARMS, DESPITE THE

FACT HE ONCE WAS UNDER

F.B.I. SURVEILLANCE FOR

NEARLY A YEAR.

MATEEN WAS A REGULAR AT

THE NIGHTCLUB, AND HE ALSO

SCOUTED DISNEY WORLD FOR A

POSSIBLE ATTACK.

WHILE THE INVESTIGATION

CONTINUES.

THE ORLANDO SHOOTING HAS

BECOME A HOT POLITICAL

ISSUE AFTER PRESIDENT

OBAMA REFUSED TO EVEN

UTTER THE WORDS MUSLIM OR

ISLAMIC TERRORISM IN HIS

STATEMENT AFTER THE

ORLANDO MASSACRE.

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

NOMINEE DONALD TRUMP

EXPANDEDED HIS PROPOSED

MUSLIM BAN, SAYING THE

DOORS TO THE UNITED STATES

SHOULD BE CLOSED TO ANYONE

FROM NATIONS WITH A TRACK

RECORD OF ISLAMIC

TERRORISM, REGARDLESS OF

THEIR RELIGION.

I WILL SUSPEND

IMMIGRATION FROM AREAS OF

THE WORLD WHERE THERE IS A

PROVEN HISTORY OF

TERRORISM AGAINST THE

UNITED STATES, EUROPE, OR

OUR ALLIES, UNTIL WE FULLY

UNDERSTAND HOW TO END

THESE THREATS.

Reporter: TRUMP

ACCUSED PRESIDENT OBAMA OF

BEING WILLFULLY IGNORANT

ON MUSLIM TERRORISM, AND

SAID OF THE PRESIDENT,

QUOTE,"THERE IS SOMETHING

GOING ON."

DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL

NOMINEE HILLARY CLINTON

HAD FIRST FOLLOWED

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

POLITICALLY CORRECT

APPROACH.

INFLAMMATORY,

ANTI-MUSLIM RHETORIC HURTS

THE VAST MAJORITY OF

MUSLIMS WHO LOVE FREEDOM

AND HATE TERROR.

Reporter: BUT HER

OPPONENT POUNCED, SAYING

CLINTON ISN'T STRONG

ENOUGH.

AND HER CONTINUING

RELUCTANCE TO EVER NAME

THE ENEMY BROADCASTS

WEAKNESS ACROSS THE ENTIRE

WORLD.

Reporter: CLINTON

FINALLY UTTERED THE WORDS

"RADICAL ISLAMISM" IN A

PHONE INTERVIEW WITH CNN,

BUT SAID SHE WOULD NOT

DEMONIZE AN ENTIRE

RELIGION.

WE FACE A TWISTED

IDEOLOGY AND POISONED

PSYCHOLOGY THAT INSPIRES

THE SO-CALLED LONE WOLVES.

Reporter: THE

DEMOCRATS RESPONSE DURING

A ROCKET SESSION OF

CONGRESS MONDAY WASN'T

TOUGHER ANTI-TERROR LAWS

BUT GUN-CONTROL

LEGISLATION.

I'M PARTICULARLY

INTERESTED IN ABOUT THREE

PIECES OF LEGISLATION THAT

HAVE BEEN FILED.

Reporter: BUT

REPUBLICANS STOPPED IT.

BUT FOR NOW, AS

POLITICIANS DEBATE AND

DISCUSS, INVESTIGATORS ARE

STILL TRYING TO LEARN MORE

ABOUT THE MAN WHO CARRIED

OUT THE DEADLIEST MASS

SHOOTING IN AMERICAN

HISTORY.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, THE BACK

STORY THAT I THINK YOU

NEED TO FOCUS ON TODAY,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IS

THE DILEMMA OF THE

LIBERALS, THE SO-CALLED

PROGRESSIVES, BECAUSE THEY

HAVE TWO FAVORED GROUPS.

ONE, THE MUSLIMS.

NUMBER TWO, THE

HOMOSEXUALS.

AND SUDDENLY THEY'RE

FINDING THAT THE MUSLIMS

IN 10 MUSLIM NATIONS,

THERE IS A DEATH PENALTY

FOR PRACTICING

HOMOSEXUALITY.

AS I BELIEVE READING A

ALCOHOL BY HERSI ALI,

THERE ARE ABOUT 40

PRO-MUSLIM COUNTRIES WHERE

HOMOSEXUALITY IS SOMEHOW

AGAINST THE LAW.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT A

FAVORED GROUP BY THE LEFT,

THE HOMOSEXUALS, AND THAT,

IN ISLAM, IS PUNISHABLE BY

DEATH OR IMPRISONMENT OR

SOME SANCTION.

SO WHAT DO THE LEFT WANT

TO DO?

HOW ARE THEY GOING TO

DESCRIBE IT?

THEY DON'T KNOW QUITE WHAT

TO DO NOW.

BUT THE FACT THAT THIS

ISLAMIC GENTLEMAN OPENS

FIRE IN A GAY NIGHTCLUB

AND KILLS ALMOST 50

HOMOSEXUALS, THAT SAYS

SOMETHING.

AND IT TELLS THE FACT THAT

ISLAM IS AGAINST

HOMOSEXUALITY.

SO THE LIBERALS ARE GOING

TO BE SCRAMBLING TO FIND

SOME RATIONALE.

AND I THINK THEY'RE GOING

TO HAVE A HARD TIME DOING

IT.

IN THE MEANTIME, DONALD

TRUMP IS RIDING HIGH

BECAUSE HE SAID WE SHOULD

SCREEN THESE PEOPLE.

AND HE IS ABSOLUTELY

RIGHT.

WE SHOULD SCREEN THEM.

AND SO THE LEFT IS SAYING,

OH, YOU'RE ANTI-MUSLIM,

YOU'RE RACE SIST AN RACIST AND ALL OF

THAT.

SUDDENLY THAT PART OF THE

NARRATIVE DOESN'T PLAY TOO

WELL, AND THEY'RE STUCK AS

TO WHAT TO DO.

BUT TRUMP IS ENJOYING A

VICTORY, AND IF MORE OF

THESE THINGS HAPPEN, EVERY

TIME IT DOES, THE

PRESIDENT, WHO FAILED TO

WORK IN LIBYA -- HE SAID

THE ASSA ASSAD REGIME HAD TO

GO, AND HE DREW A RED LINE

AND DIDN'T ABIDE BY THAT.

HE LET LIBYA GO INTO

CHAOS.

HE WAS GOING TO,

QUOTE,"LEAD FROM BEHIND."

HE HAS NOT TAKEN A LEAD OF

DEALING WITH ISIS, AND HE

SAID THE "J.V. TEAM."

AND BECAUSE THE WORLD

WON'T FIT HIS NARRATIVE,

HE JUST IS GOING TO STAY

WITH THE NARRATIVE.

AND I SAW A COLUMN BY A

MAN NAMED BRETT STEVENS,

WHO TALKED ABOUT KING

KANUT, WHO ORDERED THE

WAVES STOP COMING IN.

HE HAD PEOPLE WHIP THE SEA

TO PUNISH IT BECAUSE IT

DIDN'T OBEY HIM.

OBAMA IS TRYING TO WHIP

THE WAVES, AND THEY WON'T

OBEY HIM.

THEY WON'T OBEY HIS

NARRATIVE.

BECAUSE RADICAL ISLAM IS

IN THE RELIGION OF ISLAM.

IT IS DEEPLY EMBEDDED IN

THE WRITING OF MUHAMMAD.

IT IS IN THE QURAN.

IT IS THE HADIF.

YOU READ CAREFULLY WHAT

THEY HAVE SAID, AND IN

TERMS OF HOMOSEXUALITY --

IT IS INTERESTING, A MAN

NAMED D.H. LAWRENCE, A

FAMOUS MAN AMONG THE

ARABS, HE HAS A

DESCRIPTION OF A NIGHT

THAT HE SPENT IN, I GUESS,

CAPTIVITY OR AS A GUEST OF

SOME SHEIK, AND APPARENTLY

THAT MAN PERFORMED

HOMOSEXUAL ACTS ON

LAWRENCE.

WE'RE NOT SURE EXACTLY

BECAUSE IT IS A LITTLE

VEILED IN HIS WRITINGS,

BUT IT WAS SOMEHOW IN

THERE.

SO IT IS A MERKY PICTURE,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

BUT JUST KEEP IT IN MIND.

SO WHY DID OMAR MATEEN

LAUNCH HIS DEADLY ATTACK?

WELL, THE ANSWER MAY BE

FOUND IN THE TEACHINGS OF

ISLAM ITSELF.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT

STORY.

John: THANKS, PAT.

ISIS AND OTHER ISLAMIC

GROUPS BELIEVE IN TEACHING

THAT HOMOSEXUALS ARE

PEOPLE THEY CONSIDER

WORTHY OF DEATH.

CBN'S CHRIS MITCHELL

BRINGS US THAT STORY FROM

JERUSALEM.

Chris: ISLAMIC

EXPERTS SAY THE ATTACK ON

ORLANDO'S PULLS NIGHTCLUB

WAS NO ACCIDENT.

ISLAM TEACHES

HOMOSEXUALITY IS A CRIME

THAT MUST BE PUNISHED.

THERE ARE MANY, MANY

COUNTRIES IN THE MODERN

WORLD OF ISLAM, IN SAUDI

ARABIA, BRUN NAEI, IN WHICH

HOMOSEXUAL IS ILLEGAL.

Reporter: BOTH THE

QURAN AND THE HADIF, AND

THE SAYS, WHOEVER YOU FIND

COMMITTING THE SINS OF THE

PEOPLE OF LOTT, KILL THEM,

BOTH THE ONE WHO DOES IT,

AND THE ONE TO WHOM IT IS

DONE.

THIS SHEIKH, ONE OF

SUNNI'S TOP SCHOLARS, SAYS

THERE IS A DEBATE WITHIN

ISLAM ON THE PUNISHMENT,

BUT NO DISAGREEMENT ON THE

CRIME.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: ISIS IS

VERY CLEAR ON THE

PUNISHMENT.

FOR EXAMPLE, IN

DECEMBER 2014, NEAR THE

BORDER OF SYRIA AND IRAQ,

THE TERROR GROUP EXECUTED

A MAN FOR HOMOSEXUALITY

AND QUOTED THE HADITH IN

SENTENCING HIM TO DEATH.

IT SAID IN PART THAT THE

ISLAMIC COURT SENTENCED A

MAN WHO PERFORMED ACTS OF

THE PEOPLE OF LOTT,

HOMOSEXUAL ACTS, TO BE

CAST OFF TO THE HIGHEST

PLACE IN THE TOWN AND THEN

STONED TO DEATHMENT IN

OTHEDEATH.IN OTHER INSTANCES, ISIS

BEHEADED HOMOSEXUALS.

YOU HAVE GROUPS THAT

DON'T EVEN LIKE ISIS WHO

ARE CELEBRATING AND

SUPPORTING HIM BECAUSE OF

WHO HE TARGETED.

IN TERMS OF TARGETING

GAYS, THIS IS NOTHING NEW.

THE SCALE IS NEW.

HAVING THIS MANY PEOPLE

KILLED IN ONE ATTACK IS

NEW, BUT THE IDEA OF GOING

AFTER GAY PEOPLE IS NOT

NEW AND IT IS QUITE

POPULAR IN THE MUSLIM

WORLD, UNFORTUNATELY.

Reporter: THIS MAN

DISCUSSES THE PUNISHMENT

FOR HOMOSEXUALITY DURING A

2013 APPEARANCE AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN.

DEATH IS THE SENTENCE.

THEY ARE EMBARRASSED ABOUT

THIS.

DEATH IS THE SENTENCE.

IN THE ISLAMIC SOCIETY,

WHERE PEOPLE WANT THE LAW

OF ISLAM TO RULE, THEY'VE

GOT TO BE EXECUTED.

Reporter: MOSHE

SHARON SAYS THE ORLANDO

TERROR ATTACK NEEDS TO BE

UNDERSTOOD IN THE LARGER

GOAL OF ISLAM TO RULE THE

WORLD.

NOW, IT LOOKS

RIDICULOUS WHEN YOU SAY

ISLAM WANTS TO RULE THE

WORLD.

BUT AS FAR AS THESE PEOPLE

ARE CONCERNED, THIS IS

THEIR IDEOLOGY.

IF YOU CAN RULE OF WORLD

BY TAKING A GAY CLUB, SO

YOU'VE DONE YOUR JOB,

EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT TO

DO.

YOU PUT PEOPLE INTO FEAR.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT

ISLAMIC TERRORISTS WOULD

LIKE TO DO, TO CREATE A

SITUATION WHERE THE LIFE

OF A NORMAL PERSON IS NOT

NORMAL ANYMORE.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

John: THANKS, CHRIS.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: ONE MORE TIME, I

WANT TO MENTION THE FACT

THAT THIS IS A RELIGIOUS

BELIEF.

IT IS DEEPLY INGRAINED IN

THE PEOPLE.

WHEN OUR PRESIDENT REFUSES

TO ACKNOWLEDGE IT, WHEN

THE SECRETARY OF STATE,

NOW THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE

FOR PRESIDENT, REFUSES TO

ACKNOWLEDGE IT, AND SAYS

THAT THIS IS A SLUR

AGAINST A, QUOTE,"GREAT

RELIGION," THIS IS

NONSENSE.

THIS IS WHAT THIS GREAT

RELIGION TEACHES.

IT IS RIGHT IN THE WORD OF

ISLAM.

WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR

NOT, THAT'S THE WAY IT IS.

SO THE LEFT IS HAVING A

DILEDILEMMA OF MAJOR

PROPORTIONS.

I THINK FOR THOSE OF US

WHO DISAGREE WITH SOME OF

THEIR POLICIES, THE BEST

THING TO DO IS TO SIT ON

THE SIDELINES AND LET THEM

KILL THEMSELVES.

JOHN?

John: PAT, DESPITE

ISLAMIC ATTITUDES TOWARDS

HOMOSEXUALITY, AND THE

FACT THAT THE GUNMAN

PLEDGED HIS LOYALTY TO

ISIS DURING THE ATTACK,

SOME LAWYERS FOR THE

AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES

UNION SAY THE CHRISTIAN

RIGHT IS TO BLAME FOR THE

SHOOTING.

ONE TWEETED, THE CHRISTIAN

RIGHT HAS INSTITUTED 200

ANTI-LGBT BILLS IN THE

PAST MONTH.

MEANWHILE, CHURCHES HAVE

BEEN AMONG THOSE OFFERING

COMPASSION AND SUPPORT TO

THOSE AMONG THIS TERRIBLE

TRAGEDY.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US THAT STORY FROM

ORLANDO.

Reporter: THE NATION

CONTINUES TO MOURN WITH

THE FAMILIES OF THOSE

MASSACRED.

THESE MEMBERS OF THE

COMMUNITY TOLD US THEY

DIDN'T JUST KNOW ONE

VICTIM.

THEY KNEW MANY.

AFTER VISITING THE

HOSPITAL, PASTOR ISRAEL

MARTIN SAYS WE HAVE NOT

YET SEEN THE END OF THE

DEATH COUNT.

SOME PEOPLE, RIGHT NOW,

ARE DYING IN THE HOSPITAL.

I KNEW ABOUT A YOUNG LADY

WHO RECEIVED A SHOT, AND

SHE IS DYING.

SO THE FAMILY IS

DESTROYED.

Reporter: BUT

HOSPITAL OFFICIALS

CONTINUE WORKING OVERTIME

TO SAVE THOSE IN CRITICAL

CONDITION.

MIRACULOUSLY, THE ORLANDO

REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER IS

LOCATED JUST BLOCKS FROM

PULLS NIGHTCLUB, AND IT IS

THE ONLY LEVEL ONE TRAUMA

CENTER IN ALL OF CENTRAL

FLORIDA.

MEANING THIS FACILITY IS

SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER

EQUIPPED THAN THE AVERAGE

HOSPITAL TO HANDLE A

CATASTROPHE OF THIS LEVEL.

AND WE HEARD MANY STORIES

OF HOW WORKERS RESPONDED.

SHE SAID SHE HAS NEVER

SEEN PEOPLE PULL TOGETHER

LIKE THIS.

THEY WERE AMAZING.

Reporter: ALL AROUND

ORLANDO, PEOPLE ARE

PULLING TOGETHER WITH GOOD

SAMARITANS, HANDING OUT

WATER AND FOOD, WHILE

DONORS WAIT IN LINE TO

GIVE BLOOD.

WHEN A TRAGEDY LIKE

THIS HAPPENS, WE ALL NEED

TO GET OUT THERE AND DO

WHAT WE CAN.

HIS PERSON MEANT TO

STRIKE FEAR, BUT LOVE

CONQUERS FEAR, SO I GUESS

WE WIN.

Reporter: IT IS A

STRONG MESSAGE AGAINST THE

TERRORISM THAT STRUCK THE

CITY.

ORLANDO IS ABSOLUTELY

GOING TO COME OUT

STRONGER.

THERE IS NO AMOUNT OF

HATE -- NO AMOUNT OF HATE

THAT WILL PUT US IN FEAR.

THERE IS MORE LOVE AND

GOOD IN THE WORLD THAN

THERE IS HATE.

WE'LL MAKE SURE WE COME

BACK AND EMBRACE ONE

ANOTHER, THAT WE HEAL AND

THAT WE MOVE FORWARD.

Reporter: PASTOR

MARTIN'S CHURCH HAS

OFFERED TO HOST FUNERAL

SERVICES FREE OF CHARGE.

I STILL HAVE, IN MY

MIND, THE PICTURE OF THAT

REACTION OF THE DIFFERENT

FACES WHEN THEY RECEIVE

THE NOTIFICATION.

ONLY GOD CAN GIVE COMFORT

TO THEIR HEARTS BECAUSE

THEY ARE BROKEN.

Reporter: THIS

MEMORIAL SITS IN BETWEEN

THE NIGHTCLUB WHERE THE

MASSACRE OCCURRED AND THE

HOSPITAL WHERE THE VICTIMS

WERE TAKEN.

IT HAS CONTINUED TO GROW

IN SIZE THROUGHOUT THE

WEEK, AND IT IS A PLACE

WHERE MOURNERS ARE

GATHERING TO LOVE AND

SUPPORT EACH OTHER DURING

THIS DIFFICULT TIME.

REPORTING FROM ORLANDO,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN

NEWS.

John: PAT, THAT

OUTPOURING OF SUPPORT IS

SO CRITICALLY NEEDED RIGHT

NOW FOR THE PEOPLE OF

ORLANDO.

Pat: I GUESS IT IS.

IT MUST BE QUITE A SHOCK.

IT IS THE BIGGEST ACT OF

THIS TYPE OF THING, OF

TERROR THAT WE'VE HAD IN

THIS COUNTRY.

THE 9/11 TOWERS CAME DOWN,

AND THERE WERE ALMOST

3,000 PEOPLE THAT DIED IN

THAT ONE.

BUT THEY SAY THIS IS THE

BIGGEST -- UP TO 50 -- 49

NOW, THEY SAY, BUT ANOTHER

EQUAL NUMBER THAT HAVE

BEEN CRITICALLY WOUNDED.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

UNTIL WE RECOGNIZE WHO THE

ENEMY IS -- WE CAN DEAL

WITH THIS, BUT WHAT WE'VE

GOT TO DO IS GO IN AND

CRUSH ISIS.

WE HAVE TO CRUSH ISIS.

UNTIL WE CRUSH THEM, THEY

WILL BE A BEACON STAR FOR

THE I'L IDEALISM FOR PEOPLE

LIKE THIS SHOOTER, WHO ARE

LOOKING FOR A REASON TO

DIE, AND ISIS IS GIVING IT

TO THEM.

IT WOULD TAKE VERY LITTLE

OF THE RESOURCES OF

AMERICA TO GO IN.

IT IS GOING TO TAKE

TROOPS, AND IT IS GOING TO

TAKE AIR POWER.

AND IT IS GOING TO TAKE A

LOT MORE THAN JUST DRONE

STRIKES.

WE NEED TO GO IN AND

THOROUGHLY ELIMINATE THEM.

WE COULD DO IT IN NORTHERN

IRAQ AND SYRIA -- WE COULD

DO IT IN A MATTER OF

WEEKS, AND THEY'D BE GONE.

BUT OUR PRESIDENT IS

RELUCTANT TO ACT.

AND BECAUSE HE IS

RELUCTANT TO ACT, WE'RE

GOING TO HAVE THIS TERROR

IN OUR HOMELAND OVER AND

OVER AND OVER AGAIN UNTIL

SOMEBODY WAKES UP AND

SAYS, LET'S DEAL WITH IT

FORCEFULLY.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, THE

NEW PHENOMENON AMONG

AMERICA'S BABY-BOOMERS,

ENCORE CAREERS.

THIS NOTION OF AN

ENCORE IS A WAY TO

IDENTIFY, I'M RE-THINKING

WHO I AM, AND I'M TAKING A

SECOND CHANCE, THIRD

CHANCE, TO REDEFINE WHO I

AM.

Terry: SEE WHY MORE

AND MORE RETIREES ARE

REBOOTING, AFTER THIS.

Pat: HAVE YOU HEARD

THE NAMES OF THE VARIOUS

GENERATIONS?

WELL, MOVE OVER

MILLENNIALS.

ANOTHER GENERATION IS

ENTERING THE JOB MARKET.

MORE AND MORE OF THE

SO-CALLED BABY-BOOMERS ARE

FINDING THAT RETIREMENT

ISN'T WHAT THEY EXPECTED.

AND AS JO JOHN JESSUP

REPORTS, THEY WANT TO COME

BACK TO WORK.

John: SAY THE WORD

"RETIRED," AND WHAT COMES

TO MIND?

WELL, THE ANSWER DEPENDS

ON WHOM YOU ASK.

HAVING THAT BALANCE OF

BEING ABLE TO ENJOY LIFE,

BUT MAYBE TO BE CREATIVE,

GIVE BACK TO OTHERS DURING

THAT TIME AS WELL.

IT IS EVEN HARD TO

THINK ABOUT.

I'M JUST STARTING OFF, I

FEEL.

John: FOR MANY, THE

NOTION OF GROWING OLDER IS

CHANGING.

ZUMBA, THE POPULAR HIGH

OCTANE DANCE PROGRAM,

ISN'T JUST FOR YOUNG

FITNESS ENTHUSIASTS.

IN THIS CLASS IN

WASHINGTON, D.C., THE

AVERAGE AGE IS 80.

IT SEEMS EVERYWHERE WE

TURN, WE SEE PEOPLE DEFINE

WHAT IT MEANS AND WHAT TO

DO WHEN YOU GROW OLD.

FLORIDA'S AGREEABLE

CLIMATE, SCENERY, AND ITS

LACK OF INCOME TAXES,

MAKES IT AN ATTRACTIVE

DESTINATION FOR SNOWBIRDS

AND RETIREES.

THE SUNSHINE STATE HAS THE

LARGEST PERCENTAGE OF

PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY 65

AND OLDER.

AND WITH AN AGING

POPULATION THAT IS OLDER

AND LIVING LONGER, MORE

AND MORE SENIORS ARE

REDEFINING WHAT IT MEANS

TO RETIRE.

I KNOW A LOT OF

PEOPLE'S IDEA OF

RETIREMENT IS THEY WANT TO

GO ON A CRUISE.

THAT HAS NEVER BEEN ON OUR

RADAR.

Reporter: LINDA AND

HER HUSBAND, FRANK, HAVE

LIVED HERE ALL OF THEIR

LIVES.

LINDA RETIRED AS A COLLEGE

FINANCIAL AID ASSISTANT

LAST YEAR.

SHE ENJOYS HER NEWFOUND

FLEFLEXIBILITY, BUT...

I WOULD SAY IT FEELS

LIKE I'M WORKING

FULL-TIME.

Reporter: HER

CHRISTIAN ROMANCE NOZZLES NOVELS

DRAWS FROM HER WORK AS A

VOLUNTEER AND WORK AT A

PREGNANCY CRISIS CLINIC.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE AREN'T

GOING TO PICK UP A HOW-TO

BOOK, BUT THEY PICK UP

SOMETHING FICTION THAT

HELPS THEM.

EITHER HELPS THEM KNOW

ABOUT THE SITUATION OR

EVEN, TO AN EXTENT, CAN

POINT THEM TOWARDS GOD TO

HELP THEM.

Reporter: WHILE

WRITING WAS A CHILDHOOD

PASSION, SHE FOLLOWED A

DIFFERENT PROFESSIONAL

PATH.

NOW IN RETIREMENT, SHE IS

FINALLY LIVING HER DREAM.

THE DECISION TO SWITCH

GEARS LIKE THIS EVEN HAS A

NAME.

IT IS CALLED AN "ENCORE

CAREER."

THE WORD "ENCORE" MEANS

COMING BACK.

THIS NOTION OF AN ENCORE

IS TO IDENTIFY, I'M

RE-THINKING WHO I AM.

I'M TAKING A SECOND

CHANCE, THIRD CHANCE, TO

REDEFINE WHO I AM.

Reporter: THIS

COUNSELLOR SAYS THE

TRADITIONAL IDEA OF

WORKING TO RETIREMENT NO

LONGER WORKS, ESPECIALLY

FOR BABY-BOOMERS LIKE

LINDA.

THERE ARE 10,000 PEOPLE

RETIRING EVERY DAY.

AND PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING

TO JUST STOP WORKING.

AND THEY'RE GOING TO LIVE

30 YEARS LONGER.

AND WE'RE GOING TO TAKE

CARE OF OUR BODIES AND

OURSELVES AND WE'LL MATCH

MUCH LONGER.

Reporter: AFTER THE

RECESSION, LACK OF

FINANCES FORCED SOME

RETIREES BACK TO WORK.

ACCORDING TO DR. FELDER, A

BOOMER HIMSELF, THIS

PHENOMENON IS ALSO

COURTESY OF THE DIGITAL ER

RO.

ERA.

OUR FAMILIES ARE

MOBILE, AND WE ARE GROWING

IN SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS.

Reporter: AND THE

NUMBERS BACK IT UP.

MORE THAN HALF OF SENIORS,

AGED 60 AND OLDER, PLAN TO

KEEP ON WORKING AFTER THEY

RETIRE.

A 10% INCREASE OVER THE

PREVIOUS YEAR.

SHE WEARS IT WHEN SHE

EATS, AND SHE WEARS IT

WHEN SHE SLEEPS.

I'M NEVER GOING TO SAY

RETIREMENT.

MY BEST, MY LATTER DAYS,

BECAUSE IT IS INVESTED IN

PEOPLE.

Reporter: PAULETTE

BROWN NOT ONLY FINDS TIME

TO WRITE BOOKS AND

BUSINESS PLANS, SHE ENJOYS

HER 11 GRANDKIDS, WHO SHE

SAYS KEEP HER YOUNG.

AS YOU GET OLDER, YOU

HAVE TO MOVE SPIRITUALLY,

PHYSICALLY, AND MENTALLY.

YOU HAVE TO MOVE AND KEEP

YOURSELF SURROUNDED BY

YOUNG PEOPLE.

Reporter: ALL THEMES

THAT ARE COMMON AMONG

RETIREES, MENTORING AND

GIVING BACK.

FOR LINDA, WHO IS GUIDED

BY HER CHRISTIAN FAITH,

SOME OF THE PROFITS FROM

HER BOOK SALES SUPPORT THE

LOCAL PREGNANCY CRISIS

CENTER, AND ONE OF HER

SONS, WHO IS A MISSIONARY

IN AFRICA.

YOU GET TO THE PLACE

WHERE YOU THINK, I ONLY

O HAVE SHAVE SO MANY YEARS LEFT.

DO I HAVE 10, FIVE, OR,

LIKE MY MOTHER, LIVE TO

98?

BUT I WANT TO DO SOMETHING

FOR GOD THAT WOULD MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

Reporter: IT HAS ALSO

HELPED LINDA CONNECT HER

ENCORE CAREER TO THAT IDEA

OF TRAVEL.

SHE PLANS TO VISIT HER

SON'S FAMILY IN BOTSWANA.

THAT'S ON MY BUCKET

LIST NOW, A TRIP TO

AFRICA.

Reporter: JOHN

JESSUP, CBN NEWS.

Pat: STEWART CATHY,

WHO FOUNDED CHICK-FIL-A,

SAID, I THINK I WANT TO

LIVE TO BE OVER 100.

BECAUSE HE SAYS SO FEW

PEOPLE OVER 100 DIE.

Terry: YOU'RE NOT

EXACTLY SITTING BACK AND

RETIRING.

Pat: I COULDN'T STAND

IT.

IT DRIVES ME CRAZY.

A COUPLE OF DAYS AND YOU

GO CRAZY.

PEOPLE SAY, HOW WAS YOUR

WEEKEND, AND I SAY, THREE

DAYS.

Terry: STAY THE

COURSE.

Pat: STAY THE COURSE.

WE WANT TO STAY ACTIVE.

AND BEING HERE WITH MY

CHARMING CO-HOST KEEPS US

ACTIVE.

Terry: WELL, WE'RE

GLAD YOU ARE.

> COMING UP, HE MADE THE

FIRST OF MORE THAN 275 "X"

RATED FILMS WHEN SHE WAS

ONLY 18 YEARS OLD.

I BECAME VERY BIG VERY

QUICKLY.

I WAS NAMED ONE OF MAXIM'S

TOP 10 HOTTEST PORN STARS.

I WAS ON JENNA JAMIESON'S

TV SHOW CALLED "AMERICAN

SEX STARS."

Terry: STAY TUNED TO

FIND OUT WHY ONE OF THE

WORLD'S BIGGEST PORN STARS

WALKED AWAY FROM THE

INDUSTRY AT THE TOP OF HER

GAME.

Pat: YOU'RE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND WE'RE

SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU WITH

US.

THEY SAY THE GREEKS HAVE A

WORD FOR IT -- THEY'VE GOT

WORDS FOR EVERYTHING.

PORNEA WAS A GREEK WORD

FOR SEXUAL INTERCOURSE,

AND PORNOGRAPHY WAS

WRITING ABOUT SEXUAL

INTERCOURSE.

SO WE TALK ABOUT

PORNOGRAPHIC, WELL, YOU'RE

USING A GREEK TERM.

WELL, SO MUCH FOR YOUR

LESSON IN SPEECH.

BUT A LADY NAMED BRITTANY

WAS JUST 18 YEARS OLD.

SHE WAS A COLLEGE

FRESHMAN, AND SHE NEEDED A

FEW BUCKS TO HELP MEET THE

MONTHLY EXPENSES, SO SHE

DECIDED TO START STRIPPING

IN BARS TO MAKE,

QUOTE,"EASY CASH."

BRITTANY ALSO LOVED THE

ATTENTION AND THE APPLAUSE

THAT SHE GOT.

SO WHEN TWO MOVIE

PRODUCERS OFFERED TO PUT

HER IN A PORNOGRAPHY FILM,

BRITTANY JUMPED AT THE

CHANCE.

AND SOON A FAMOUS SEX STAR

WAS BORN.

ON MY VERY FIRST PORN

SET, WE PICKED MY STAGE

NAME, AND IT WAS JENNA

PRESLEY.

FROM THAT POINT FORWARD, I

BECAME VERY BIG VERY

QUICKLY.

Reporter: BRITTANY

DELAMOR WAS JUST 18 YEARS

OLD WHEN SH SHE STARRED IN

HER FIRST SEX FILM.

I WAS NAMED ONE OF

MAXIM'S TOP 10 HOTTEST

PORN STARS.

I WAS ON JENNA JAMIESON'S

TV SHOW CALLED "AMERICAN

PORN STAR."

Reporter: BRITTANY

GOT HER START IN 2006.

AT THE TIME, SHE WAS A

COLLEGE JOURNAL STUDENT.

AND SHE DANCED IN A STRIP

CLUB.

WHILE IT HELPED HER PAY

FOR TUITION, IT ALSO GAVE

BRITTANY THE ATTENTION SHE

ALWAYS LONGED FOR.

THE ATTENTION AND

APPLAUSE MADE ME FEEL

GOOD.

IT MADE ME FEEL AFFIRMED.

BECAUSE I LIVED A LIFE

WHERE I ALWAYS FELT LIKE I

WAS REJECTED AND, LIKE, I

WASN'T GOOD ENOUGH AND I

DIDN'T BELONG.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT

AT THE CLUB, TWO MEN ASKED

IF SHE WAS INTERESTED

FILMING PORN.

THE NEXT DAY SHE WAS ON A

MOVIE SET AT A HOME IN

L.A.

I THOUGHT, I'M ALREADY

PEPER MISCOUPER MISCOUPERMISCOUS, SO WHY T HE NOT

TAKE MY CLOTHES OFF.

I DIDN'T THINK THERE WOULD

BE SUCH HORRIBLE

CONSEQUENCES.

Reporter: SHE HAD THE

PRAISE OF AN ADORING

AUDIENCE, MONEY, AND

RECOGNITION.

EVERY TIME I GOT AN

AWARD IN THAT INDUSTRY, IT

MADE ME FEEL LIKE I HAD

ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING.

Reporter: BUT NONE OF

THOSE THINGS FULFILLED HER

NEED FOR LOVE.

WITH EACH PASSING YEAR,

BRITTANY SLIPPED FURTHER

INTO DEPRESSION.

ALTHOUGH PUBLICLY I WAS

SMILING, INTERNALLY I WAS

HURTING AND I WAS CRYING.

AND I DIDN'T TELL ANYBODY.

Reporter: EVERY DAY

SHE USED DRUGS TO COPE.

I THOUGHT, AS LONG AS I

CAN GET HIGH AND FEEL

ANYTHING OTHER THAN

DEPRESSION, I CAN AT LEAST

GET THROUGH THIS DAY.

I FELT HORRIBLE ABOUT

MYSELF ON THE INSIDE.

I HATED MYSELF.

I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT BY I

WAS ALIVE.

I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHY

I LIVED ON THIS EARTH.

I HAD NO REAL PURPOSE.

I WOULD WAKE UP IN THE

MORNING, GET HIGH, GO HAVE

SEX, COLLECT A PAYCHECK,

AND BUY MORE DRUGS.

Reporter: HOPING TO

BREAK THE CYCLE, BRITTANY

AGREED TO ATTEND CHURCH

SERVICE WITH HER

GRANDFATHER.

SHE SAID HER HOPE WAS

RESTORED THAT DAY.

THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT

I HAD LOST OVER THE YEARS

OF BEING IN THE PORN

INDUSTRY.

AND IN LIFE I LOST HOPE.

AND JESUS GAVE ME HOPE.

SO I PRAYED THE PRAYER OF

SALVATION THAT DAY, AND I

WAS GIVEN A BIBLE.

Reporter: BUT

BRITTANY NEVER WENT BACK

TO CHURCH OR PURSUED HER

FAITH AND RETURNED TO THE

SEX INDUSTRY.

I DIDN'T KNOW THE

TRUTH.

I WAS LIVING IN SIN AND

DARKNESS BECAUSE THE LIGHT

HADN'T BEEN TURNED ON IN

MY LIFE YET.

Reporter: OVER THREE

YEARS LATER, BRITTANY WAS

PACKING TO FLY TO LAS

VEGAS FOR A FILM SHOOT

WHEN SHE HEARD SOMETHING.

BEFORE I LEAVE FOR THE

AIRPORT, I HEARD THE VOICE

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AND HE SAID, BRING YOUR

BIBLE.

Reporter: SHE TOOK

HER BIBLE, AND DURING THE

FLIGHT, SHE STARTED

READING THE BOOK OF

REVELATION.

AT THIS POINT I GET TO

REVELATION 2: 20, AND GOD

STARTS SPEAKING TO ME

THROUGH THIS VERSE.

IT SAYS THAT I HAVE SINNED

AGAINST YOU, AND HE IS

TALKING TO ONE OF THE

CHURCHES, THAT YOU

TOLERATE THESE WOMAN NAMED

JEZEBELLE.

SHE LEADS PEOPLE INTO

SEXUAL IMMORTALITY.

I HAVE GIVEN HER TIME TO

RESPENT.

AND IF SHE DOESN'T REPENT,

I WILL CAST HER AND HER

CHILDREN INTO A SICK BED.

AND I STARTED CRYING

BECAUSE I REALIZED THAT

WAS MY FATHER IN HEAVEN

SPEAKING TO ME ABOUT THE

WAY HE FELT ABOUT SEXUAL

IMMORTALITY.

AND I HAD A CONVICTION

THAT I SHOULDN'T BE DOING

WHAT I'M DOING.

AND I APOLOGIZED TO GOD.

AND I ASKED HIM FOR

FORGIVENESS.

Reporter: BRITTANY

CUT ALL TIES TO THE PORN

INDUSTRY AND STARTED

PURSUING GOD AND LIVING

HER LIFE FOR JESUS CHRIST.

A YEAR LATER, SHE MET HER

HUSBAND, RICHARD, AND THEY

NOW LEAD A YOUNG ADULT

MINISTRY, AS BRITTANY

SHARES HOW UNCONDITIONAL

LOVE CHANGED HER LIFE.

THROUGH CHRIST, I AM

ABLE TO SEE MYSELF WITH

LOVE.

BECAUSE FOR THE FIRST TIME

IN MY LIFE, I HAD FOUND

REAL, TRUE LOVE.

AND IT FELT SO GOOD TO

KNOW THAT NOT ONLY DID MY

CREATOR LOVE ME, BUT THAT

HE COULD LOVE ME EVEN

AFTER EVERY MISTAKE I'VE

MADE IN LIFE, AFTER EVERY

SIN THAT I'D COMMITTED.

AFTER EVERYTHING, HE LOVED

ME THROUGH IT ALL.

THAT WAS A LOVE SO DEEP

THAT I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW

EXISTED.

Pat: IF THAT DOESN'T

TOUCH YOUR HEART.

A LOVE THAT IS SO DEEP I

DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT

EXISTED.

SEE ALL OF THIS STUFF THAT

YOU SEE ON THE FILMS, IT'S

ALL MAKE-BELIEVE.

AND TO THAT GIRL WAS,

LIKE, MAKE-BELIEVE.

AND IT WAS, I'M DOING THIS

TO MAKE THE MONEY, AND

THEN I'M GOING TO GET HIGH

TO FORGET WHAT I'M DOING.

BUT GOD SHOWED HER TRUE

LOVE.

IF YOU WANT TRUE LOVE,

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO FIND

IT IN SEXUAL IMMORTALITY.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO FIND

IT GETTING HIGH WITH SOME

CHEMICAL.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO FIND

LOVE THAT WAY.

BUT SHE FOUND TRUE LOVE SO

DEEP SHE DIDN'T KNOW

EXISTED.

SO DEEP, THE LOVE OF GOD.

SO POWERFUL.

O GOD, THE WORLD HAS NOT

KNOWN THEE, FATHER, BUT I

HAVE KNOWN YOU.

THE LOVE OF GOD.

JESUS CHRIST CAME TO SHOW

US THE LOVE OF GOD.

AND HE SAID TO HIS FATHER,

NOW GLORIFY ME WITH THE

GLORY I HAD WITH YOU

BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF

THE EARTH.

DO YOU WANT SOMETHING THAT

WILL TOUCH YOU FOREVER?

AND GIVE YOU JOY

UNSPEAKABLE AND FULL OF

GLORY?

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

PROMISES YOU.

THAT'S WHAT GOD PROMISES

YOU, JOY UNSPEAKABLE AND

FULL OF GLORY.

IF YOU WANT IT, RIGHT NOW

DON'T GO ANYWHERE.

RIGHT THIS MINUTE BOW YOUR

HEAD AND PRAY THESE WORDS.

DO IT NOW.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT,

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, I DON'T KNOW LOVE.

I FELT REJECTED.

GOD, I'M SORRY FOR WHAT

I'VE DONE.

I'M SORRY I HAVE ABUSED

MYSELF AND ABUSED OTHERS.

BUT TAKE ME, NOW, LORD.

PIE WANI WANT TO BE PART OF YOUR

FAMILY.

I WANT TO LIVE IN MY

FATHER'S HOUSE.

TAKE ME, LORD.

I RECEIVE YOU AS MY SAVIOR

AND AS MY LORD.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON I

AM YOURS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO START YOU OUT.

I WANT YOU TO DO SOMETHING

BECAUSE THAT WAS A

PRAYER -- THAT WAS A

BEGINNING.

BUT YOU'RE GOING TO GROW

NOW IN THE LORD.

AND I HAVE SOMETHING THAT

I THINK IS VERY POWERFUL.

IT IS 73 MINUTES OF

CONCENTRATED TEACHING

ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS AFTER

YOU HAVE COME TO THE LORD.

AND I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU

FREE IF YOU JUST PICK UP

THE PHONE AND CALL.

SAY, I PRAYED WITH PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD, AND I FOUND THAT

LOVE THAT HE WAS TALKING

ABOUT.

I FOUND THAT DEEP LOVE.

THE TELEPHONE NUMBER IS

TOLL-FREE.

IT WON'T COST YOU A CENT.

THERE IS NO OBLIGATION

WHATSOEVER.

JUST PICK UP THE PHONE AND

SHARE WHAT YOU'VE JUST

DONE.

1-800-759-0700.

1-800-759-0700.

AND SAY, I JUST FOUND

JESUS.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, MEET A YOUNG GIRL

WHO DREAMED OF BUILDING A

VILLAGE FOR ORPHANS IN

AFRICA.

SEE HOW THAT DREAM IS

COMING TRUE.

PLUS...WE'VE GOT YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

A VIEWER ASKS, "HOW DOES

ONE KNOW WHAT PURPOSE GOD

HAS FOR HIS LIFE?"

PAT IS GOING TO TACKLE

THIS QUESTION AND MORE

WHEN WE "BRING IT ON."

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

THE MURDER OF A POLICE

OFFICER IN HIS HOME IN A

PARIS SUBURB IS BEING

CALLED AN ACT OF ISLAMIC

TERROR.

POLICE SAY A

KNIFE-WIELDING ATTACKER

STABBED THE OFF-DUTY

SENIOR POLICE OFFICER AND

HIS FEMALE COMPANION, A

FELLOW OFFICER.

THE COUPLE'S 3-YEAR-OLD

SON WAS FOUND UNHARMED.

AN ISLAMIC STATE NEWS

AGENCY SAYS AN ISIS

FIGHTER CARRIED OUT THAT

ATTACK.

> A PERSON CAN LIST

THEIR GENDER AS

NON-BINARY, RATHER THAN

MALE OR FEMALE, ACCORDING

TO A RULING FROM A CIRCUIT

JUDGE IN OREGON.

THE PORTLAND PAPER REPORTS

THE RULING LEGALLY CHANGED

52-YEAR-OLD JAMIE SHU'S

GENDER FROM FEMALE TO

NON-BINARY.

SHE WAS BORN MALE, BUT SHE

SAYS I'M A MIXTURE OF

BOTH.

I CONSIDER MYSELF A THIRD

SEX.

UNDER OREGON LAW, A JUDGE

CAN LEGALLY CHANGE A

PERSON'S GENDER WITHOUT A

DOCTOR'S NOTE.

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

*

Terry: HE IS SHE IS A

TEENAGER WHO LIVES WITH

HER MOTHER IN UKRAINE.

HE NEVER KNEW THE SIMPLE

SOUNDS THAT YOU AND I TAKE

FOR GRANTED, UNTIL HE

RECEIVED HELP FROM

"ORPHANS' PROMISE." THEY

ARE REFUGEES IN A WAR IN

UKRAINE THAT SEEMED TO

NEVER END.

BUT AS MUCH AS THEY NEEDED

FOOD AND SHELTER, OLGA

WANTED MORE THAN ANYTHING

FOR HER SON, SASHA, TO BE

ABLE TO HEAR.

THE DOCTORS SAID IT WAS

HOPELESS.

I WAS SEIZED WITH DISPAIR.

Terry: SHASHA COULD

NOT ATTEND SCHOOL, SO OLGA

TAUGHT HIM TO READ AT

HOME.

OTHER CHILDREN STILL

REJECTED HIM BECAUSE HE

WAS DEAF.

THE SITUATION GOT WORSE

WHEN HER HUSBAND ABANDONED

THEM.

I COULDN'T WORK BECAUSE

I COULD NOT LEAVE SASHA

ALONE.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Terry: OLGA

REMEMBERED THE DAY THAT

SHE WAS FINALLY ABLE TO

TAKE HER SON FOR A FREE

HEARING TEST.

WITH SOME HELP FROM

HEARING AIDS, SASHA HEARD

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS

LIFE.

IT WAS VERY LOUD.

I HEARD CARS.

HIS EYES WERE GLOWING

WITH HAPPINESS.

Terry: BUT THEN THE

DOCTOR TOLD THEM THEY

WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR THE

HEARING AIDS.

THE COST OF EVEN ONE

DEVICE WAS OUT OF REACH.

OLGA KNEW THEY COULD NEVER

SAVE ENOUGH TO HELP HER

SON TO HEAR.

EVERY DAY HE WAS

REPEATING TO ME, WE HAVE

TO SAVE OUR MONEY.

HE DIDN'T EVEN WANT ME TO

BUY BREAD.

Terry: THEN OLGA

LEARNED ABOUT CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE." WE

TOOK SASHA AND HIS MOM

BACK TO THE CLINIC AND

WATCHED AS THE DOCTOR

FITTED HIM WITH A NEW SET

OF HEARING AIDS.

WHEN WE PUT THE HEARING

AIDS ON HIM, WE

IMMEDIATELY GOT A

REACTION.

THIS IS A VERY GOOD SIGN

OF HIS FUTURE DEVELOPMENT.

Terry: THIS TIME THEY

WERE HIS TO KEEP.

FOR ME IT IS A REAL

MIRACLE.

NOW I WANT TO STOP

EVERYTHING ELSE AND JUST

HEAR EACH SOUND WITH HIM.

I WANT TO RESTORE WHAT WAS

LOST.

GOD HAS RESPONDED THROUGH

THE HELP OF OUR FRIENDS IN

AMERICA.

Terry: THE POWER OF

ONE PERSON TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

AND YOU KNOW IN LIVES LIKE

SASHA'S, YOU MAY BE THAT

ONE PERSON.

GOD CALLS US ALL TO STAND

WITH THE WIDOW, TO STAND

WITH THOSE WHO ARE

ORPHANED AND VULNERABLE.

AND IN THIS SITUATION, YOU

WALKED RIGHT INTO THE

MIDST OF A MOTHER'S

DESPERATION, AND A CHILD'S

ISOLATION.

THIS LITTLE BOY WOULD HAVE

NO FUTURE WITHOUT THE

ABILITY TO HEAR.

HIS SPEECH WOULD BE

IMPEDED.

HE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GO

TO SCHOOL -- HE WASN'T

ABLE TO GO TO SCHOOL UP TO

THIS POINT.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG

WITH HIM, OTHER THAN HIS

HEARING.

AND THEY SIMPLY COULDN'T

AFFORD THE DEVICES HE

NEEDED SO HE COULD HAVE A

LIFE AND A FUTURE.

IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, YOU HELPED MAKE

THAT HAPPEN.

BECAUSE "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

IS CBN'S OUTREACH TO

ORPHANED AND VULNERABLE

CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD.

> RIGHT NOW, I WANT YOU

TO MEET A YOUNG WOMAN WHO

DREAMED OF HELPING ORPHANS

IN AFRICA, AND WHO'S DREAM

IS NOW COMING TRUE.

Reporter: EVER SINCE

SHE WAS A LITTLE GIRL,

DEVON HAS BEEN PRAYING FOR

UNDERPRIVILEGED KIDS.

I WAS REALLY SICK.

Reporter: MOST PEOPLE

LAUGHED WHEN DEVON SHARED

HER DREAM TO ONE DAY BUILD

AN O ORPHANAGE IN AFRICA.

BUT FOR HER 16th

BIRTHDAY, SHE ASKED FOR

DONATIONS, INSTEAD OF

GIFTS, TO BUILD A FRESH

WATER WELL FOR THOSE IN

NEED.

SHE TOOK THAT MONEY AND

DONATED IT TO "OPERATION

BLESSING" FOR NOT ONE, BUT

THREE WATER WELLS.

NOW AT 22, SHE FORMED AN

ORGANIZATION AND PARTNERED

WITH "ORPHANS' PROMISE" TO

BUILD A VILLAGE IN GOD.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," DEVON

LEANDIS.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

THANK YOU.

Terry: CAN YOU

BELIEVE THAT THIS DREAM IS

ABOUT TO UNFOLD BECAUSE OF

A VISION GOD GAVE YOU?

IT IS SURREAL TO THINK

ABOUT HOW FAR GOD HAS

BROUGHT ME SINCE THAT

DREAM WHEN I WAS A LITTLE

GIRL.

Terry: WHEN YOU WERE

REALLY LITTLE, GOD SPOKE

TO YOUR HEART ABOUT

ORPHANS, DIDN'T HE?

UH-HUH.

I WOULD ALWAYS PRAY WITH

MY PARENTS EVERY NIGHT,

AND GOD INSTILLED A DREAM

IN MY HEART TO WANT TO

GROW UP AND BUILD AN

ORPHANAGE IN AFRICA.

THAT'S KIND OF WHERE IT

STARTED.

Terry: ONE OF THE

WONDERFUL THINGS THAT IS

GOING ON IN ORPHAN CARE

TODAY AROUND THE WORLD, IS

PUTTING CHILDREN IN FAMILY

SETTINGS.

SO IT IS NOT LIKE GIANT

ORPHANAGES, LIKE WE USED

TO DO EVEN HERE IN AMERICA

YEARS AGO.

BUT YOU HAVE BUILT A HOME

FOR THESE CHILDREN, WHERE

MOMS AND DADS WILL BE

PARENTING THESE KIDS, BUT

WITHIN A VILLAGE THAT HAS

A CHAPEL AT THE CENTER OF

IT.

IT IS A BIG VISION THAT

YOU HAVE, AND ON TOP OF

THAT YOU'RE GOING TO LIVE

THERE.

UH-HUH.

Terry: TELL ME ABOUT

THAT?

IT IS REALLY EXCITING

FOR US TO OPEN THIS NEW OR

ORPHAN CARE AND HAVE THIS

FAMILY STRUCTURE.

AND I'LL BE MOVING OVER

THERE IN A COUPLE OF

WEEKS.

I'M NOT SURE HOW LONG I'M

GOING TO STAY, BUT I'M

TRUSTING GOD WILL MAKE

THAT CLEAR TO ME.

AND THAT HE WILL GIVE ME

EVERYTHING I'M GOING TO

NEED BECAUSE BEING OVER

THERE AND LIVING THERE IS

GOING TO BE REALLY

DEMANDING, AND SOMETIMES

EXHAUSTING, BUT THAT'S

WHEN YOU NEED TO CALL OUT

TO GOD THE MOST.

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

YOU, ON YOUR 16th

BIRTHDAY, INSTEAD OF

RECEIVING GIFTS RAISED

MONEY TO DO THESE THREE

WELLS -- YOU THOUGHT YOU

WOULD BE DOING ONE, BUT

YOU ACTUALLY ENDED UP

DOING THREE.

YOU WENT BACK FOR THE

OPENING OF THE WELLS, AND

BECAME SORT OF THE QUEEN

OR THE PRINCESS FOR A DAY

IN THAT COMMUNITY.

DID THAT ANCHOR YOU INTO

THESE PEOPLE, DEVON?

DID YOU FEEL A CONNECTION

WITH THEM THAT LEFT YOU

INCAPABLE OF COMING BACK

AND DOING LIFE AS USUAL?

YES, ABSOLUTELY.

I REMEMBER BEING IN A

SMALL VILLAGE THAT WAS A

COUPLE OF HOURS FROM THE

CAPITAL CITY.

SO FAR THERE WAS NO ROADS

TO DRIVE THROUGH.

WE WERE DRIVING THROUGH

THESE FORESTS, AND WE GOT

OUT AND THERE WERE 1500

PEOPLE THERE WAITING.

IT WAS REALLY IN THAT

MOMENT WHERE I FELT LIKE

GOD HAD MADE IT SO CLEAR,

AND HAD SPOKEN TO ME AND

SAID, THIS IS WHAT I'VE

CALLED YOU TO DO.

THIS IS KIND OF WHY YOU'RE

HERE.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE ANYONE

TO SEEK THAT PURPOSE AND

MAKE GOD THE FOREFRONT OF

WHATEVER THEY CHOOSE TO

DO.

Terry: YOU REALLY HAD

A HEART TO GO BACK TO

AFRICA EARLY, AND YOU

HONORED YOUR MOM AND DAD

BY GOING ON TO UNIVERSITY

AND GETTING THE DEGREE

THAT THEY WANTED YOU TO

GET.

WHAT IS YOUR HOPE AND YOUR

DREAM?

YOU ARE CALLING THIS

"PROJECT MAMENSA," AND

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM FOR THE

CHILDREN?

WHEN I THINK ABOUT

THESE CHILDREN, I CAN ONLY

THINK ABOUT RAISING UP THE

FUTURE LEADERS OF GHANA,

IF NOT THE WORLD.

AND GOD HAS PUT A CALLING

ON THEIR LIVES AS WELL.

AND HE HAS SUCH GREAT

MEANING AND PURPOSE FOR

THEM TO LIVE OUT.

I'M REALLY HOPING THAT GOD

WOULD TAKE THIS VISION AND

BRING IT TO ALL OF THE

NATIONS.

I'M JUST KIND OF TAKING IT

ONE DAY AT A TIME.

Terry: YOU KNOW WHAT?

THAT'S THE BEST WAY TO

LIVE.

JUST ONE DAY AT A TIME

WITH JESUS.

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS JUST

EXCITED TO BE PARTNERING

WITH YOU AND A PART OF

WHAT YOU'RE DOING THERE.

WE'RE EXCITED TO SEE WHAT

GOD WILL DO, TOO, BECAUSE

IT IS A BIG VISION FOR A

WONDERFUL COUNTRY WITH

LOTS OF CHILDREN IN NEED.

WE'RE GOING TO WALK THIS

JOURNEY TOGETHER AND COME

ALONGSIDE YOU AND HOLD

YOUR ARMS UP AND BLESS YOU

IN WHAT GOD HAS CALLED YOU

TO.

THANK YOU FOR BEING TRUE

TO THE VISION GOD HAS

PLACED IN YOUR HEART, AND

YOU HAVE FOLLOWED IT

FAITHFULLY.

WE'RE GOING TO GHANA.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE

INFORMATION ON "PROJECT

MAMENSA," ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO IS LOG ON TO cbn.com.

DEVON AND I WILL BE THERE

IN JULY AND WE'RE GOING TO

CUT THE RIBBON.

WE WANT TO SHARE THAT

STORY, SO FOLLOW THAT.

> WHEN WE COME BACK,

WE'RE GOING TO "BRING IT

ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

TRISTAN SAYS, "THE BIBLE

SAYS THERE WILL BE A NEW

HEAVEN AND EARTH.

WILL WE BE IN HEAVEN FOR

SOME TIME AND THEN GO TO A

NEW EARTH TO LIFE?"

PATS GOING TO ANSWER THAT

AND MORE RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: IT IS TIME TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PAT THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM A VIEWER WHO SAYS,

"HOW DOES ONE KNOW WHAT

PURPOSE GOD HAS FOR HIS

LIFE?"

Pat: I THINK IT IS A

PROGRESSIVE REVELATION.

IT IS NOT SOMETHING YOU'RE

GOING TO LEARN ALL AT ONE

TIME.

BUT I BELIEVE GOD IS NOT

GOING TO PUT YOU INTO

SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE

NOT BEEN FORMED TO DO.

IT WON'T BE SOME RADICAL

SHIFT.

YOU SAY, WHAT IS YOUR

PURPOSE?

WELL, WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO

DO?

WHAT MAKES YOU

COMFORTABLE?

WHAT IS THE DREAM IN YOUR

HEART?

WHAT IS THERE?

AND IT IS THE FULFILLMENT

OF THAT, WHICH IS

ULTIMATELY THE PURPOSE GOD

WILL HAVE FOR YOU.

AND I FOUND IN MY LIFE

THAT GOD HAS GIVEN ME

CERTAIN SKILLS AND

ABILITIES, AND WITH ME

CERTAIN THINGS ARE EASY TO

DO BECAUSE THAT'S JUST THE

WAY GOD MADE ME.

SO I CAN DO CERTAIN

THINGS.

AND I DO MORE AND MORE AND

MORE OF THEM.

BUT THAT BECOMES WHAT YOUR

PURPOSE IS.

THEN YOU CAN DO FASTING.

YOU CAN DO PRAYER.

AND YOU CAN GO OFF WITH

THE BIBLE AND SPEND TIME

ASKING HIM FOR DIRECTION,

AND HE'LL GIVE IT TO YOU.

BUT HE'LL SAY -- HE SAID,

YOU'LL HEAR A VOICE IN

YOUR EAR, WHEN YOU TURN TO

THE RIGHT OR THE LEFT,

SAYING THIS IS THE WAY TO

WALK IN IT.

AND THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID,

LET THE PEACE OF GOD BE AN

UMPIRE IN YOUR HEART.

AS LONG AS THE PEACE IS

THERE, YOU'LL KIND OF KNOW

YOU'RE GOING DOWN THE

RIGHT WAY.

AND WHEN THE PEACE LEAVES,

YOU CAN SAY, OOPS, I

BETTER HAVE A COURSE

CREDIT CARDS.

IT IS TRIAL AND ERROR.

YOU'RE WALKING DOWN THE

ROAD, YOU'RE LOOKING AT

THE LORD, AND YOU'RE

ASKING HIM TO LEAD YOU.

Terry: YOU DIDN'T

HAVE VISION FOR THE WHOLE,

AS YOU LOOK BACK ON YOUR

LIFE, OF WHAT GOD WAS

CALLING YOU FOR?

Pat: NO MORE.

Terry: IT HAPPENED

ONE PROJECT AT A TIME.

Pat: ONE AT A TIME.

AND EACH THING LEADS TO

ANOTHER, AND HE GETS YOU

TO THE POSITION WHERE YOU

CAN GROW TO ANOTHER AND

ANOTHER AND ANOTHER.

AND WHAT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE

BECOMES EASY.

Terry: TRISTAN SAYS,

"THE BIBLE SAYS HEAVEN AND

EARTH WILL PASS AWAY, AND

THEN A NEW EARTH WILL

BECOME.

WILL WE BE IN HEAVEN FOR

SOME TIME AND THEN GO TO A

NEW EARTH AGAIN TO LIVE?"

Pat: THERE WAS A

THIEF ON THE CROSS WITH

JESUS, AND THE THIEF SAID,

LORD, REMEMBER ME WHEN YOU

COME INTO YOUR KINGDOM.

AND JESUS SAID, THIS DAY

YOU'LL BE WITH ME IN

PARADISE.

THERE IS SOME SORT OF

INTERMEDIATE PLACE CALLED

PARADISE WHERE THE

RIGHTEOUS DID GO AND WAIT.

AND THEN AT THE FINAL

CULMINATION OF THINGS,

WE'RE GOING TO BE GIVEN

NEW BODIES TO GO ALONG

WITH THE SPIRIT THAT IS

THERE.

AND WE WILL BE CLOTHED

WITH A NEW BODY.

THEN THE BIBLE SAYS GOD IS

GOING TO MAKE A NEW HEAVEN

AND A NEW EARTH.

SO I GUESS THE CREATION IS

GOING TO BE CHANGED SO

THERE WON'T BE ANYMORE

DECAY.

THERE WON'T BE ANYMORE

DEATH.

THERE WON'T BE ANYMORE

SUFFERING.

THAT WILL HAPPEN AT THE

END, AT THE GREAT WHITE

THRONE, WHEN GOD MAKES

EVERYTHING NEW.

Terry: MANDY SAYS,

"DEAR PAT, IF YOU LONG TO

A CHURCH YOU'RE USUALLY

CONFIRMED OR BAPTIZED.

IS IT NECESSARY TO DO THAT

IN ORDER TO GET INTO

HEAVEN ONE DAY?"

Pat: NO, I DON'T

THINK SO.

I THINK YOU GET INTO

HEAVEN ON ACCOUNT OF

FAITH.

YOU ARE SAVED BY FAITH AND

NOT BY WORKS, LEST ANY MAN

SHOULD BOOST.

SO ONE OF THE ACT OF

OBEDIENCE, ONCE YOU'VE

COME TO THE LORD, IS TO BE

BAPTIZED.

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO

THROUGH SOME RITUAL OF A

CHURCH IN ORDER TO GET TO

HEAVEN.

HEAVEN IS THERE FOR THOSE

WHO BELIEVE.

I GUESS THAT'S IT FOR

TODAY.

Terry: THANK YOU.

Pat: WE LEAVE YOU

WITH TODAY'S POWER MINUTE

FROM PROVERBS: "THE

BLESSING OF THE LORD MAKES

ONE RICH, AND HE ADDS NO

SORRY WITH IT."

I APPRECIATE EVERYBODY

BEING WITH US.

TOMORROW THE POTENTIAL

THREAT OF AN

ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS

THIS.

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT.

SO FOR TERRY AND WENDY AND

ALL OF US, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON, AND WE WILL SEE

YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
