700 Club Interactive - Faith of Family and Friends - July 18, 2016

Two children almost bled to death on the side of a road, see how they miraculously survived. Read Transcript


Gordon: A TERRIBLE

CAR CRASH...

I DON'T KNOW HOW ANYONE

COULD SURVIVE THAT.

Gordon: ...WITH NO

ONE AROUND TO HELP.

PLEASE, LORD, SEND

SOMEBODY TO FIND US.

Gordon: THE AMAZING

RESCUE...

AND SHE ALMOST BLED TO

DEATH.

Gordon: ...AND THEIR

INCREDIBLE SURVIVAL ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

*

Gordon: GOOD MORNING,

AND WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

THAT AMAZING STORY OF

SURVIVAL IS COMING UP IN

THE PROGRAM, JUST MINUTES

AWAY.

> BUT, FIRST, WE WANT TO

GET STARTED WITH A QUICK

RUNDOWN WITH WHAT IS

HAPPENING AROUND THE

WORLD.

LAST WEEK NBA STARS LEB LEBRON

JAMES, CHRIS WADE AND

OTHERS OPENED THE ESPY

AWARDS ON A SOMBER NOTE,

ACKNOWLEDGING WE HAVE GOT

PROBLEMS IN THE WORLD

TODAY.

AND THE KILLINGS OF TWO

BLACK MEN AND THE KILLINGS

OF FIVE POLICE OFFICERS IN

DALLAS -- THEY ALL CALLED

FOR AN END TO VIOLENCE.

THE EVENTS OF THE PAST

WEEK HAVE PUT A SPOTLIGHT

ON INJUSTICE, DISTRUST,

AND ANGER THAT PLAGUES SO

MANY OF US.

THE SYSTEM IS BROKEN.

THE PROBLEMS ARE NOT NEW.

THE VIOLENCE IS NOT NEW.

AND THE RACIAL DIVIDE

DEFINITELY IS NOT NEW.

BUT THE URGENCY FOR GREAT

CHANGE IS AT AN ALL-TIME

HIGH.

IT IS TIME TO LOOK IN

THE MIRROR AND ASK

OURSELVES: WHAT ARE WE

DOING TO CREATE CHANGE?

LET'S USE THIS MOMENT AS A

CALL TO ACTION FOR ALL

PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES TO

EDUCATE OURSELVES, EXPLORE

THESE ISSUES, SPEAK UP,

USE OUR INFLUENCE, AND

RENOUNCE ALL VIOLENCE.

AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY, GO

BACK TO OUR COMMUNITIES

AND INVEST OUR TIME, OUR

RESOURCES, HELP REBUILD

THEM, HELP STRENGTHEN

THEM, AND HELP CHANGE

THEM.

WE ALL HAVE TO DO BETTER.

Gordon: LET ME AMEN

LEBRON JAMES ON THAT ONE,

THAT WE ALL HAVE TO DO

BETTER.

AND WE ALL NEED TO TAKE A

VERY DEEP LOOK INTO OUR

INNER CITIES AND SAY, WHAT

CAN I DO ABOUT THIS?

IT IS MORE THAN JUST A

RACIAL DIVIDE.

THERE IS A HUGE ECONOMIC

DIVIDE HAPPENING IN

AMERICA TODAY.

AND YOU HAVE THE HAVEs

AND THE HAVE NOTs.

AND YOU LOOK AT THE ROOTS

OF THE RECENT WAVE OF

VIOLENCE, AND YOU'VE GOT

TO SAY THERE IS ALSO AN

ECONOMIC COST HERE, NOT TO

THE VIOLENCE, BUT WHAT IS

GOING ON?

WHAT CREATES THE

ENVIRONMENT WHERE THE

POLICE ARE LOOKING AT

PEOPLE AS SOMEHOW EVERYONE

IS A PERP, AND THE

NEIGHBORHOODS INVOLVED ARE

LOOKING AT THE POLICE AS

THEIR ENEMIES.

IN ORDER TO COME TOGETHER,

WE NEED TO CROSS THAT

DIVIDE.

WE NEED TO INVEST BACK

INTO OUR COMMUNITIES.

WELL, DWAYNE WADE TOOK ON

THE TOPIC OF RACIAL

PROFILING HEAD-ON.

THE RACIAL PROFILING

HAS TO STOP.

THE SHOOT TO KILL

MENTALITY HAS TO STOP.

NOT SEEING THE VALUE OF

BLACK AND BROWN BODIES HAS

TO STOP.

BUT, ALSO, THE RETALIATION

HAS TO STOP.

THE ENDLESS GUN VIOLENCE

IN PLACES LIKE CHICAGO,

DALLAS -- NOT TO MENTION

ORLANDO -- IT HAS TO STOP.

ENOUGH.

Gordon: ENOUGH IS

ENOUGH.

AND IT DOES NEED TO STOP.

AND WE NEED TO BE PART OF

THAT SOLUTION.

AND THE CHURCH,

ESPECIALLY, NEEDS TO BE

PART OF THAT SOLUTION.

WHERE WE'RE REACHING OUT

WITH HANDS OF LOVE AND

COMPASSION TO THE PEOPLE

WHO ARE ALL BEING IMPACTED

BY THIS.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE

STATISTICS -- AND THE

STATISTICS ARE CLEAR --

THAT ONE-THIRD OF ALL

AFRICAN-AMERICAN MALES,

FROM THE AGE OF 18 TO 34,

ARE SOMEHOW INVOLVED IN

THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE

SYSTEM -- THEY'RE EITHER

IN PRISON OR ON PAROLE --

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THOSE

NUMBERS, YOU'VE GOT SAY,

WE HAVE A HUGE PROBLEM.

AND THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT

GOD CAN HELP FIX THAT

PROBLEM.

AND HE WANTS TO.

SO WE CAN BE PART OF THE

SOLUTION.

> WELL, IN OTHER NEWS, A

"GOD'S NOT DEAD 2"

BILLBOARD WAS NIXED FOR

THE G.O.P. CONVENTION

AFTER BEING CALLED TOO

POLITICAL.

CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT, TOO

POLITICAL AT A POLITICAL

CONVENTION.

AND THEN INCENDIARY.

THAT MEANS IT IS GOING TO

PUT THINGS ON FIRE.

WELL, THE SIGN WOULD HAVE

DRAPED DOWN A LARGE

BUILDING IN DOWNTOWN

CLEVELAND, AND FEATURE A

PICTURE OF MELISSA JOAN

HART, THE ACTRESS WHO

PLAYS A TEACHER IN TROUBLE

FOR ANSWERING A STUDENT'S

QUESTIONS ABOUT JESUS.

ALONGSIDE THE IMAGE, AND

THIS WAS THE INCENDIARY

TEXT: "I RATHER STAND WITH

GOD AND BE JUDGED BY THE

WORLD, THAN STAND WITH THE

WORLD AND BE JUDGED BY

GOD."

JUST IMAGINE THAT.

LET'S GET THAT PICTURE

BACK UP AGAIN.

IMAGINE THOSE WORDS

SOMEHOW BEING CENSORED AT

THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL

CONVENTION.

THOSE POSTERS WON'T BE

INSIDE THE CONVENTION.

THEY AREN'T ALLOWED

OUTSIDE THE CONVENTION

BECAUSE THAT STATEMENT IS

CONSIDERED TOO

INFLAMMATORY.

I FIND THAT ABSOLUTELY

INCREDIBLE.

AND WE NEED TO LET

REPUBLICANS KNOW, UH-UH,

YOU DON'T GET TO LIMIT

RELIGIOUS SPEECH.

THAT IS BASIC CHRISTIAN

DOCTRINE, THAT WE CAN'T BE

OF THIS WORLD.

IT IS BETTER TO BE FRIENDS

WITH GOD AND ENEMIES WITH

THE WORLD -- THAT'S BASIC

CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE.

AND IF YOU'RE GOING TO SAY

BASIC CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE

IS TOO INCENDIARY FOR OUR

REPUBLICAN NATIONAL

CONVENTION, GIVE ME A

BREAK.

> HERE IS THE OTHER SIDE

OF IT: ATTENDEES ARRIVING

TO THE CONVENTION, THEY'LL

BE GREETED BY A GIANT

BILLBOARD WITH PRESIDENT

RONALD REAGAN'S IMAGE

SAYING, "WE ESTABLISH NO

RELIGION IN THIS COUNTRY."

NOW, I AGREE WITH THAT,

CHURCH AND STATE ARE

SEPARATE, AND THERE IS NO

ESTABLISHED RELIGION.

BUT BEHIND THE PURCHASE OF

THAT, AN ATHEIST GROUP.

AND THERE IS GOING TO BE

MORE INSIDE THE

CONVENTION.

30 SMALLER PRO-ATHEIST

SIGNS ARE GOING TO BE

THERE, AND ALSO AT THE

DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION.

NOW THAT IS A CONTRAST.

> OTHER NEWS, AN IDAHO

MAN WHO TOLD POLICE HE

IDENTIFIES AS A WOMAN WAS

ARRESTED AFTER ALLEGEDLY

TAKING PHOTOS -- I THINK

WE NEED TO TAKE

"ALLEGEDLY" OUT OF THAT --

HE WAS TAKING PHOTOS OF A

WOMAN IN A TARGET SITTING

ROOM.

43-YEAR-OLD SEAN PATRICK

SMITH -- THERE IS HIS

ARREST PHOTO -- HE WAS

DRESSED IN WOMEN'S

CLOTHING WHEN HE ENTERED

THE FITTING ROOM OF THE

WOMEN'S SECTION OF THE

TARGET STORE.

HE THEN BEGAN TAKING

PICTURES OF THE WOMAN IN

THE CHANGING STALL NEXT TO

HIM.

AND THE REPORT IS THAT SHE

CHASED HIM OUT OF THE

CHANGING AREA, DEMANDING

TO HAVE HIS -- THAT

CAMERA -- I THINK IT WAS

ON A PHONE, AND MAKING

SURE HER PICTURES WERE

BEING DELETED.

NOW, THAT WAS THE CHARGE,

THE PREDICTION OF WHAT

WOULD HAPPEN UNDER THIS

TARGET RULE, ALLOWING

PEOPLE TO PICK THE

CHANGING AREA OF THEIR

CHOICE, THAT IT WAS GOING

TO BE AN OPEN SEASON FOR

PREDATORS.

AND WE NEED TO REALIZE

THAT PEOPLE NEED TO BE

PROTECTED IN THESE PLACES.

AND THAT'S -- WE'LL SEE

WHAT HAPPENS.

THAT'S NOT A STORY THAT IS

BEING WIDELY REPORTED, BUT

YOU'RE SEEING IT HERE.

> WELL, A LOCAL

RESIDENT -- AND HERE IS

SOME GOOD NEWS, A LOCAL

RESIDENT IN IRAQ, HIS NAME

IS NAJI SHAKER

AL-BONAWI -- WELL, HE

STOPPED A SUICIDE BOMBER

FROM CLAIMING MANY LIVES

AT HIS TOWN SHRINE.

HE IS A MUSLIM AND HE

PHYSICALLY STOPPED THE

TERRORISTS FROM ENTERING

THE SHRINE.

AND HERE IS AN INCREDIBLE

THING: HE HUGGED HIM AND

THEN THE EXPLOSIVE VEST

DETONATED AND KILLED BOTH

OF THEM.

NOW, NAJI'S BODY TOOK THE

DIRECT IMPACT OF THE

EXPLOSION.

OTHER PEOPLE WERE KILLED,

BUT HE REDUCED THAT DEATH

TOLL, AND HE INTERVENED TO

SAVE OTHERS.

AND THIS ATTACK COMES DAYS

AFTER ANOTHER ATTACK,

WHICH CLAIMED 300 LIVES IN

IRAQ, AND THAT WAS THE

LARGEST AND DEADLIEST, IF

YOU WILL, SINGLE ATTACK IN

IRAQ SINCE THE WAR TO OUST

SADDAM HUSSEIN 13 YEARS

AGO.

AND HERE, FINALLY SOME

GOOD NEWS: MUSLIMS

STANDING UP TO TERRORISM,

TO SAY, NOT ANYMORE AND

NOT HERE.

> COMING UP, THE

SURVIVAL STORY OF TWO

SIBLINGS WHO WERE NEARLY

KILLED IN A CAR CRASH.

THEY HAVE NO IDEA THAT

WE'RE DYING ON THE SIDE OF

THE ROAD, TWO MINUTES

AWAY.

Gordon: FIND OUT WHAT

SAVED THEIR LIVES, RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Gordon: FOR THE

DETWHILERS, THE FOURTH OF

JULY ISN'T JUST A FUN HOL

HOLIDAY.

IT IS THE DAY THEIR TWO

CHILDREN ALMOST BLED TO

DEATH ON THE SIDE OF THE

ROAD.

THINGS HAVEN'T BEEN THE

SAME SINCE THAT NEAR

TRAGEDY; INSTEAD, THEY'RE

BETTER THAN EVER.

IT WAS REALLY

TERRIFYING.

VERY TERRIFYING AND VERY

SURREAL.

THINKING OF MY FAMILY, AND

EVERYBODY IS PROBABLY

GRILLING HOTDOGS, AND THEY

HAVE NO IDEA THAT WE'RE

DYING ON THE SIDE OF THE

ROAD, YOU KNOW, TWO

MINUTES AWAY.

Reporter: ON

JULY 4th, 2010, CECILIA

AND HER BROTHER, JOE, LEFT

A FAMILY PARTY TO RUN AN

ERRAND.

JOE LEFT THE ROAD AND HIT

A TREE.

THE IMPACT LEFT THEM

FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES.

MY LEG WAS SO

INTERTWINED WITH THE TREE

AND THE METAL, AND I'M

SEEING MY BROTHER'S EAR

DETACHED FROM HIS HEAD.

HIS BREATHING WAS VERY

HEAVY AND HOARSE.

Reporter: JOE WAS

UNCONSCIOUS AND BLEEDING

HEAVILY.

THE ONLY THING CECILIA

COULD DO WAS PRAY.

I WAS PRAYING, LORD,

HELP ME.

YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE WHO

KNOWS WHERE I AM.

YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE WHO

COULD DO ANYTHING ABOUT

IT.

JUST HELP ME THROUGH THIS.

PLEASE SEND SOMEBODY TO

FIND US.

Reporter: MINUTES

LATER, A MAN FOUND THEM

AND CALLED 9-1-1.

SOON AFTER MIKE AND MARY

DETWHILER RACED TO THE

SCENE AND WITNESSED THE

RESCUE EFFORTS TO SAVE

THEIR CHILDREN.

THEY WERE TRYING TO

TEAR THEM OUT OF THE

VEHICLE.

WHEN I WENT UP, THERE WAS

A STATE TROOPER UP THERE,

AND HE SAID IT IS TOO BAD,

DON'T GO.

IT'S THE WORST.

IT'S ABSOLUTELY THE WORST.

THE CAR WAS STILL SMOKY.

I DON'T KNOW HOW ANYONE

COULD HAVE SURVIVED THAT,

I REALLY DON'T.

THEY FINALLY GOT JOE

OUT OF THE CAR, AND THEY

THREW HIM IN THE

HELICOPTER.

THEY LET US SEE HIM FIRST.

AND WHEN THEY TOOK HIM

OUT OF THE CAR, I THOUGHT

HE WAS DEAD.

HE WAS JUST LIFELESS.

JUST LIFELESS.

IT WAS HORRIFIC.

WE THOUGHT HE WAS GONE.

Reporter: RESCUE

CREWS WORKED FOR TWO HOURS

TO GET CECILIA FROM THE

TRUCK AND SAVE HER MANGLED

LEG.

BOTH KIDS WERE FLOWN TO

ST. LOUIS CHILDREN'S

HOSPITAL.

DR. JOSE RECALLS JOE'S

CONDITION.

THERE WAS ALWAYS A

CONCERN HE MAY NOT

SURVIVE.

FROM THE C.T. SCANS, WE

COULD TELL IT WAS SEVERE.

AND I WOULD SAY IN THE

SPECTRUM OF SEVERE, HE WAS

AMONGST THE SEVEREST OF

THE SEVERE.

JOE'S BRAIN PRESSURE

WAS REALLY VERY HIGH.

THEY DID NOT THINK HE WAS

GOING TO MAKE IT THROUGH

THE NIGHT.

THEY PREPARED US FOR HIM

NOT TO MAKE IT THAT NIGHT.

BY THE TIME SHE GOT THERE,

SHE WAS IN WORSE SHAPE

THAN JOE.

THEY TOLD US, BY THE TIME

HE GOT TSHE GOT TO THE HOSPITAL,

SHE HAD LESS BLOOD IN HER

THAN YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO

HAVE AS A HUMAN BEING.

THE FIRST DAY WALKING

IN AND SEEING YOUR TWO

KIDS SIDE BY SIDE IN THE

I.C.U. UNIT IS PRETTY

HORRIBLE.

YOU'RE PRAYING, JUST

GIVE THEM ANOTHER DAY.

LET ME SEE THEM ONE MORE

TIME, JUST TO TELL THEM I

LOVE THEM.

Reporter: CECILIA

ENDURED SEVERAL SURGERIES

TO SAVE HER LEGS.

MEANWHILE, JOE REMAINED IN

A COMA, BUT ALIVE.

AS DAYS WENT BY, MIKE AND

MARY WAIT AND PRAYED.

YOU'RE SEARCHING AND

YOU'RE PRAYING AND YOU'RE

TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO

GET THERE.

YOU'RE TRYING TO HOPE THAT

YOU'RE PRAYERS ARE HEARD.

EVERYBODY WAS PRAYING

FOR US.

AND WE FELT IT.

WE DEFINITELY FELT IT.

THE FAITH OF OUR

FRIENDS AND FAMILY -- THEY

JUST STEPPED UP.

I SAW THEM LIVE THEIR

FAITH, BECAUSE THEY JUST

STEPPED UP AND DID THINGS.

IT IS ONE THING TO SAY

SOMETHING, BUT IT IS

ANOTHER THING TO STEP UP

AND HELP SOMEONE THAT FAR

DOWN INTO THE PIT.

YOU JUST DON'T KNOW WHICH

WAY TO TURN.

Reporter: FOR WEEKS,

JOE SHOWED LITTLE SIGN OF

IMPROVEMENT.

WHILE CECILIA ENDURED

PAINFUL PHYSICAL THERAPY

AND WONDERED IF SHE WOULD

EVER WALK AGAIN.

FEELING LIKE THE

WONDERFUL LIFE I HAD WAS

JUST OVER AND DONE WITH,

AND THIS IS WHAT I HAD TO

DEAL WITH NOW.

I REMEMBER HER SAYING

TO ME -- IT WAS TOUGH, AND

SHE SAID, DADDY, MY LIFE

IS OVER.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?

I SAID, HONEY, WE'RE GOING

TO BE WITH YOU AND MAKE

THE BEST OF WHATEVER IS TO

COME.

Reporter: THEN TWO

WEEKS LATER, JOE AWOKE

FROM HIS COMA.

AND ONE NIGHT A PRIEST WAS

PRAYING IN JOE'S ROOM.

HE WAS SAYING THE

PRAYERS AND HE JOE STARTS

TO WHISPER THE END OF THE

PRAYER WITH HIM, GLORY BE

TO THE FATHER, THE SON,

AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Reporter: BOTH JOE

AND CECILIA HAVE RECOVERED

BEYOND ANYONE'S

EXPECTATIONS.

THEIR RECOVERIES WERE

UNBELIEVABLE.

IN JOE'S CASE, HE IS OFF

THE CHARTS.

THE DOCTORS TOLD MY

PARENTS, AND I THINK IT IS

ACTUALLY TRUE, JOE WILL

NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN IF

HE SURVIVES.

AND I'M NOT THE SAME.

I FEEL LIKE I'M DEFINITELY

BETTER THAN I HAVE EVER

BEEN.

THE EXPECTATION OF WHAT

HIS RECOVERY PROBABLY,

STATISTICALLY SHOULD HAVE

BEEN AND WHAT HE HAS

ACHIEVED IS REMARKABLE, TO

SAY THE LEAST.

Reporter: JOE SAYS

THIS EXPERIENCE HAS

CONFIRMED HIS DECISION TO

PURSUE THE PRIESTHOOD.

THE ENTIRE FAMILY IS

THANKFUL THAT GOD WALKED

WITH THEM IN THE DARKEST

TIME OF THEIR LIVES.

I'M AMAZED.

YOU FEEL GOD'S MERCY, IS

REALLY WHAT YOU FEEL.

BECAUSE I SURE DIDN'T

DESERVE IT.

LOOK HOW AMAZING OF A

RECOVERY WE HAD.

AND WE WOULDN'T HAVE HAD

IT WITHOUT THE GRACE OF

GOD.

I CAME TO REALIZE, WE

HAVE A GOD WHO SUFFERS,

WHO BLEEDS, WHO SUFFERS

WITH US.

HE SAYS US FROM SIN.

HE SUFFERS WITH US, LIKE,

AS OUR BROTHER, TOO.

I FOUND A LOT OF PEACE IN

THAT.

GOD IS ALWAYS WITH YOU.

EVEN WHEN I CAN'T SEE HIM,

AND EVEN WHEN IT FEELS

LIKE HE IS NOT THERE, IT

IS BECAUSE HE IS CARRYING

ME THROUGH IT.

NO MATTER WHAT DOUBTS I

HAVE, WITH MY EXPERIENCES,

I CAN NEVER, EVER DOUBT

THAT GOD LOVES ME OR THAT

GOD HEARS MY PRAYERS SINCE

THAT DAY.

Gordon: HE DOES HEAR

OUR PRAYERS.

HE HEARS THEM EVERY MOMENT

OF EVERY DAY.

AND HE DOES UNDERSTAND OUR

SUFFERING BECAUSE HE IS

RIGHT THERE SUFFERING WITH

US.

THIS IS WHY JESUS SAID,

WHATEVER YOU DO TO THE

LEAST OF THESE, MY

BRETHREN, YOU DO UNTO ME,

BECAUSE HE IS RIGHT THERE

WITH THEM, FEELING IT.

WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF

PRAYER, AND WE'RE GOING TO

BE PRAYING FOR YOU, BUT

WE'VE GOT SOME PRAISE

REPORTS.

PAT WRITES IN, "AWESOME

UPDATE FOR JERRY, WHOM I

ASKED YOU ALL TO PRAY FOR.

BIOPSY RESULTS ARE IN AND

NO MORE CANCER."

AND CINDY WROTE IN,

"YESTERDAY I NEEDED GOD TO

SHOW UP FOR MY BROTHER,

AND HE DID EXACTLY THAT.

AS I'M TYPING THIS, MY

BROTHER IS SINGING AND

HAPPY.

YESTERDAY HE WAS READY TO

GIVE UP ON LIFE.

HE IS JEF JOE JEHOVAH GYRO."

AND THIS ONE SAYS,

PLEASE PRAY FOR MY

DAUGHTER.

AND MABEL SAYS, I'M

TRYING TO COPE WITH

ARTHRITIS, AND IT REALLY

STRESSES OUT.

I USE A WALKER, BUT I

CAN'T STRAIGHT THEEN THEM OUT.

IT IS PAINFUL.

PLEASE PRAY FOR ME.

> AND MANUELA SAYS,

PLEASE PRAY FOR MY SISTER.

HE HAS LIVER CANCER AND

SHE NEEDS A MIRACLE.

LORD, WE LIFT THESE NEEDS

FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

AND FOR THE DAUGHTER WITH

THE PERSONALITY DISORDER,

WE JUST ASK THAT ALL FEAR

LEAVE HER NOW, THAT YOUR

PERFECT LOVE WOULD COME,

FILL HER SPIRIT, HER MIND,

HER EMOTIONS, AND LET YOUR

LOVE REIGN, LORD GOD.

AND FOR MABEL, WHO IS

BATTLING WITH ARTHRITIS

AND PSORIASIS, WE ASK FOR

MABEL THAT YOU TAKE AWAY

HER PAIN.

RESTORE HER SKIN.

RESTORE HER JOINTS NOW.

IN JESUS' MIGHTY NAME.

AND FOR MANUEL LA, WA, WE ASK

THAT ALL CANCER LEAVE HER

NOW.

LEAVE HER LIVER.

LEAVE HER BODY.

STOP REPRODUCING AND STOP

SPREADING NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AND NOW LET YOUR PEACE AND

YOUR COMFORT COME TO THOSE

WHO ARE WATCHING RIGHT

NOW.

AND, LORD, WE ASK THAT YOU

WOULD BE GLORIFIED.

LET THE FATHER, THE SON,

AND THE HOLY SPIRIT BE

GLOR NIDE IGLORIFIED IN THEIR

INNERMOST BEING FOR WE ASK

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE'RE

HERE FOR YOU.

ALL HAVE YOU TO DO IS CALL

US: 1-888-777-1999.

AND YOU CAN ALSO POST YOUR

PRAYER REQUESTS ON OUR

Facebook PAGE AND GET A

WHOLE COMMUNITY PRAYING

FOR YOU.

> WELL, STILL TO COME, A

CARTOON THAT CAN HELP YOU

AND YOUR FAMILY GROW IN

FAITH.

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

MOVIE, I SAW HOW BRAVE HE

WAS -- DAVID WAS -- AND I

LEARNED TO ALWAYS BE

FAITHFUL AND BRAVE.

Gordon: THAT'S WHEN

Gordon: CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK" AIRS IN MORE

THAN 70 COUNTRIES AROUND

THE WORLD.

AND IT'S INTRODUCING THE

PLAN OF SALVATION TO A

WHOLE NEW GENERATION.

RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: IN 2009,

THE CBN ANIMATED SERIES

"SUPERBOOK" WAS

RE-RELEASED WITH A NEW

LOOK AND FRESH NEW STORY

LINES.

AND GRACIE SMITH WAS ONE

THOF THE FIRST TO SEE IT.

HER AUNT IS A PRODUCER FOR

"THE 700 CLUB," AND WAS

ASSIGNED TO COVER THE

PREMIER IN DALLAS, TEXAS.

I KNEW MY NIECE,

GRACIE, WHO IS FOUR, HAD

TO BE THERE WITH ME.

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

MOVIE, I SAW HOW BRAVE HE

WAS, DAVID WAS, AND HOW TO

ALWAYS BE ENCOURAGED.

THEY OFFERED THE

INTEGRITY WITH WHICH THEY

WERE SHARING THESE BIBLE

STORIES.

"SUPERBOOK" TAKES THEM

ON FUN ADVENTURES.

LIKE THE BATTLE OF THE

WALLS OF JERICHO, THEY

WATCH JESUS PERFORM

MIRACLES, WALKING ON

WATER.

Reporter: AUDRA

EVENTUALLY JOINED THE

"SUPERBOOK" CLUB SO SHE

COULD KEEP HEARING THE

BIBLE STORIES WITH GRACIE.

"SUPERBOOK" IS AMAZING

FOR A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT

REASONS.

FIRST OF ALL, I GET A NEW,

UPDATED "SUPERBOOK" EVERY

TIME THEY MAKE ONE.

SECOND OF ALL, I GET THREE

COPIES.

SO NOT ONLY HAVE I BEEN

SENDING THEM TO GRACIE,

BUT AS OUR FAMILY HAS

GROWN THROUGHOUT THE

YEARS, I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO

SEND THEM TO MY YOUNGER

BROTHER'S CHILDREN AND I

HAVE SAVED THEM FOR MY OWN

CHILDREN.

SHE SENDS ME

"SUPERBOOK"S FOR EASTER,

BIRTHDAYS, CHRISTMAS.

SHE WANTS ME TO LEARN MORE

ABOUT GOD.

ONE SUNDAY AFTER

CHURCH, HER SUNDAY SCHOOL

TEACHER STOPPED ME AND

ASKED ME HOW SHE KNEW SO

MUCH ABOUT THE BIBLE?

I HAVE TO GIVE "SUPERBOOK"

THE CREDIT.

IT IS THE WORD OF GOD.

AND IT PLANTS THE WORD OF

GOD INTO THEIR HEARTS.

AND THE WORD OF GOD NEVER

COMES BACK VOID.

I THINK ONE OF THE MOST

EXCITING "SUPERBOOK"

MOMENTS FOR MY FAMILY IS

WHEN GRACIE STARTED TO

MEMORIZE THE SALVATION

POEM, WHICH IS SUNG AT THE

END OF EVERY D.V.D.

* JESUS, YOU DIED UPON A

CROSS, AND ROSE AGAIN TO

SAVE THE LOST *

AND EVENTUALLY SHE

STARTED ASKING ME WHAT IT

MEANT FOR JESUS TO DIE AND

SAVE US.

IT OPENED UP A LOT OF

OPPORTUNITY TO TALK ABOUT

THE PLAN OF SALVATION.

Reporter: ON NEW

YEAR'S EVE DAY, 2013,

GRACIE GAVE HER HEART TO

JESUS AND DECIDED TO BE

BAPTIZED.

I LOVE GOD VERY MUCH,

AND I WANT HIM TO BE MY

SAVIOR IN MY LIFE.

I AMAZED AT THE FRUIT

THAT I SEE IN MY ENTIRE

FAMILY'S LIFE.

THESE CARTOONS WE'RE

GETTING ON A MONTHLY

BASIS, I KNOW THEY'RE

HAVING AN ETERNAL IMPACT

ON MY FAMILY.

I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR THAT.

Gordon: YOU, TOO, CAN

GET THESE CARTOONS ON A

MONTHLY BASIS.

SALVATION.
