700 Club Interactive - Unashamed - July 20, 2016

God is bigger than your mistakes, your inadequacies, your past, and your limitations. Hear why evangelist Christine Caine says you can “Live Unashamed.” Read Transcript


I WAS SO ANGRY.

I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT I

COULD GET PAST MY PAST.

Andrew: GOD IS BIGGER

THAN YOUR MISTAKES, YOUR

INADEQUACIES, AND YOUR

PAST.

I WAS A WOMAN FULL OF

SHAME AND GUILT.

Andrew: HEAR HOW YOU

CAN LIVE UNASHAMED.

THE WORLD SAYS SHAME ON

YOU, BUT I'M DECLARING

SHAME OFF YOU.

Andrew: PLUS, WE'LL

BE TALKING ABOUT THE NEW

POKEMON CRAZE.

ALL ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

Andrew: GOOD MORNING,

AND WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

A GAME CALLED POKEMON GO

HAS LAUNCHED AND BECOME AN

INTERNATIONAL PHENOMENON.

IT IS THE FIRST MASS

MARKETED VIDEO GAME TO

SUCCESSFULLY BLEND THE

REAL WORLD AND THE DIGITAL

WORLD TOGETHER, IN A WAY

THAT THE PUBLIC IS GOING

CRAZY ABOUT, TERRY.

Terry: IT IS NOW THE

MOST POPULAR APP IN

HISTORY -- HISTORY.

ONCE YOU DOWNLOAD THE APP,

POKEMON AND PEEKICHU

SUDDENLY POP UP.

THE APP USES THE G.P.S. TO

FIND OUT WHERE THEY ARE,

AND THEY APPEAR ON THE

PHONE SO PLAYERS CAN CATCH

ALL 151 VIRTUAL CREATURES.

ANYONE CAN CAPTURE THEM BY

AIMING THE PHONE AND

SWIPING IT.

PEOPLE OF ALL AGESES

WALKING AROUND AND FINDING

THEM IN PLACES LIKE

LIBRARIES, ARTS, PARKS,

GALLERIES --

Andrew: INCLUDING MY

OFFICE THE OTHER DAY.

SOMEBODY WALKED IN -- THEY

WERE KIND OF JOKING

AROUND, BUT SOMEONE WALKED

IN WITH THEIR PHONE AND

SAID, ARE THERE ANY POKE

POKEMONS IN HERE?

AND I SAID, OF COURSE NOT.

I KNOW SOME PLAYERS HAVE

BEEN SHARING ALL SORTS OF

BIZARRE PLACES THE APP HAS

BEEN TAKING THEM, LIKE TO

TOILET STALLS, FUNERALS,

GRAVEYARDS, BASEBALL

FIELDS, AND THE CHURCH AND

SCIENTOLOGY, JUST TO NAME

A FEW.

PEOPLE LOVE PLAYING IT.

TAKE A LOOK.

I 100% HOOKED.

I LIKE PLAYING THE GAME

EVERY DAY.

IT'S VERY NOSTALGIC.

AND WE CAN RUN AROUND AND

SEE THE TRAINER INSTEAD OF

CONTROLLING THE TRAINER.

IT IS THE FANTASY WE'VE

ALL HAD SINCE YOU WERE

NINE.

Terry: UNBELIEVABLE.

A RANGER FOR THE NATIONAL

MALL AND MEMORIAL PARKS

SHOWED PLAYERS WHERE THEY

COULD CATCH POKEMON.

AND OFFICIALS URGED

VISITORS TO REFRAIN FROM

BEING DISRESPECTFUL TO

OTHERS.

THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM ASKED

THE PEOPLE NOT TO PLAY THE

GAME DURING THE VISITS,

SAYING IT WAS EXTREMELY

INAPPROPRIATE.

AND THE ARLINGTON NATIONAL

CEMETERY ASKED PLAYERS NOT

TO USE THOSE SACRED PLACES

AS POKEMON STOMPING

GROUNDS.

Andrew: TWO PLAYERS

IN TEXAS PLAYED A VISIT TO

A LOCAL PARK IN HOUSTON IN

HOPES OF STUMBLING UPON

SOME POKEMON.

INSTEAD, THEY FOUND DOZENS

OF PETS TRAPPED IN CAGES

WITH NO OWNER IN SIGHT.

MOST OF THE PETS WERE

SUFFERING FROM HEAT

EXHAUTION, RATHER THAN

LEAVE THEM TO DIE, THEY

TOOK THEM HOME AND GAVE

THEM FOOD AND WATER.

ALL OF THE 27 ABANDONED

ANNALS FOUNANIMALS FOUND IN THE PARK

MANAGED TO SURVIVE.

Terry: THAT WAS THEIR

LUCKY DAY.

THAT ISN'T THE FIRST PET

RESCUE FACILITATED BY THIS

GAME.

TWO OTHER POKEMON USERS

FOUND AND RESCUED AN

INJURED PUPPY THAT THEY

MIGHT HAVE MISSED IF IT

WEREN'T FOR THE APP

INSPIRING THEM TO WALK

THROUGH A PARK WHERE THAT

PUPPY WAS.

Andrew: AND

INTERESTINGLY, CHURCHES

HAVE ALSO BENEFITED

BECAUSE THEY HAVE BECOME

ESSENTIAL STOPS FOR

POKEMON PLAYERS.

AND SOME HAVE BECOME WATER

STOPS FOR GYMS.

THIS COULD BE GOOD NEWS

FOR MILLENNIAL-STARVED

CHURCHES ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

A THIRD OF UNTI MILLENNIALS ARE

NOT CHURCH AFFILIATED, AND

POKEMON IS DRIVING THEM

INTO THE DOORS OF THE

LOCAL CHURCHES.

PASTOR RICK WAREN TWEETED

THIS, INVITING POKEMON

TRAINERS TO HIS CHURCH.

AND THE CHURCHES ARE USING

THEIR SIGNS TO ATTRACT

GAMERS, FINDING CREATIVE

WAYS TO INVITE THEM IN AND

ENCOURAGING THEM TO FIND

JESUS AS THEY FIND

POKEMON.

Terry: A CHURCH IN

TEXAS HOSTED AN EVENT FOR

PEOPLE PLAYING THE THE

POPULAR GAME.

THEY SERVED FREE HOTDOGS

AND WATER, ALONG WITH PLUG

STRIPS SO PEOPLE COULD

RECHARGE THEIR PHONES.

I THINK THAT IS VERY, VERY

CREATIVE.

Andrew: CHURCHES ARE

FINDING A LOT OF PEOPLE,

LITERALLY ON THEIR DOOR

STEP.

Terry: HOWEVER YOU

WANDER IN, YOU'RE WELCOME.

Andrew: I REMEMBER

THE '90s POKEMON MAKING

AN APPEARANCE.

AND MY BOYS CAME TO ME A

FEW YEARS AGO, AND THEY

WERE SEVEN AND 10, AND

THEY SAID NONE OF THE KIDS

WANT TO PLAY RECESS.

THEY JUST WANT TO PLAY

POKEMON.

WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE

CARDS.

AND I SAID, IT WILL

PROBABLY EVENTUALLY PASS.

AND THE CARD CRAZE DID

PASS, AND NOW THIS HAS

COME AND TAKEN OVER THE

NATION.

Terry: WHAT IS REALLY

INTERESTING TO ME IS THE

NUMBER OF ADULTS THAT ARE

DOING THIS.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY DO

FOR A LIVING.

I CAN'T IMAGINE HAVING

TIME TO WANDER AROUND

NEIGHBORHOODS AND PARKS.

Andrew: THAT'S ONE OF

THE POSITIVE THINGS THAT

PEOPLE HAVE SAID ABOUT

THIS, IS THAT IT IS

GETTING PEOPLE OUT OF THE

HOUSE.

THEY'RE OUT THERE WALKING.

BUT, OF COURSE, YOU'RE

HAVING SITUATIONS WHERE

PEOPLE ARE BEING BIT BY

SNAKES, AND GETTING RUN

OVER BY CARS CROSSING THE

HIGHWAY BECAUSE THEY'RE

LOOKING DOWN AT THEIR

PHONES.

BUT CERTAINLY PEOPLE HAVE

TAKEN THEIR INTEREST TO A

WHOLE NEW LEVEL.

IT HAS LED TO SOME

UNEXPECTED CONSEQUENCES AS

WELL, SINCE PEOPLE REALLY

ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

TAKE A LOOK.

IN TERMS OF KIDS, WE'VE

SEEN THEM WRITE INTO THEIR

PHONES AND NOT REALLY

WATCHING WHERE THEY'RE

WALKING.

THAT IS A CONCERN FOR US.

PART OF THE APP IS TO

LURE YOU INTO PLACES SO

YOU CAN HOPEFULLY CATCH

POKEMON.

AND BRINGING ALL THESE

PEOPLE INTO ONE PLACE

COULD HAVE SAFETY

CONCERNS.

AND PEOPLE WHO ARE

DISTRACTED ON THEIR PHONES

ARE EASY TARGETS TO SWIPE

THINGS FROM.

Andrew: SINCE PLAYERS

WANDER AROUND WITH THEIR

EYES GLUED TO THEIR

SMARTPHONES AT ALL HOURS

OF THE DAY AND NIGHT,

PEOPLE ARE TRIPPING AND

FALLING.

TWO MEN IN SAN DIEGO

WALKED OFF A CLIFF WHILE

PLAYING.

THEY DID LIVE.

AND THE GAME HAS LED TO

POLICE REPORTS THAT PEOPLE

ARE TRESPASSING ON PRIVATE

PROPERTY.

BUT THIS COUPLE TRESPASSED

AT A ZOO.

WE WEREN'T THINKING.

WE WERE WALKING BY THE

ZOO, AND WE WERE LIKE, ALL

RIGHT, LET'S DO IT.

IT WAS HARMLESS FUN.

WE DIDN'T MEAN TO TRY TO

CAUSE TROUBLE.

WE WERE JUST, YEAH, BORED.

Terry: EVERYTHING

WE'VE SAID SO FAR SEEMS TO

BE HARMLESS FUN, BUT

GAMERS ARE EVEN BEING

ROBBED AT GUN POINT.

AND A WOMAN HAS FOUND THE

BODY OF A MAN IN A RIVER

NEAR HER HOME WHILE SHE

WAS OUT PLAYING THE GAME.

SINCE THE RELEASE OF THE

SMARTPHONE GAME, POLICE

HAVE GOTTEN A LOT OF CALLS

FROM RESIDENTS ABOUT

POSSIBLE BURGLARS IN THEIR

NEIGHBORHOOD, AND SOME

WORRIED ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE

OF COLOR FACE, BUT SOME

HAVE TALKED ABOUT WEIGHT

LOSS -- I WANT TO HEAR

ABOUT THAT ONE.

MAYBE IT IS JUST GETTING

UP OFF THE COUCH AND

BRINGING THEIR FAMILIES

TOGETHER.

Andrew: AND SOME IN

THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY

ARE SAYING, IS THIS

SOMETHING WE SHOULD

ADVOCATE AGAINST OR FOR OR

SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE.

REALLY THE WHOLE SCENARIO

AND THE CRAZE REMINDS US

AND CAUSES US TO REFLECT

ON THE FACT THAT WHAT WE,

AS HUMANITY -- WE SEARCH

FOR SOMETHING TO EXCITE

US, GIVE US A PASSION

ABOUT SOMETHING AND WE'RE

INTERACTING WITH OTHER

PEOPLE, AND IT REALLY JUST

SHOWS THAT A LOT OF US

HAVE AN EMPTINESS WE'RE

TRYING TO FILL WITH

SOMETHING.

Terry: SOME OF THAT

MIGHT BE THAT WE LIVE IN

SUCH A TECHNOLOGY-PRONE

WORLD, JUST GENERALLY

SPEAKING, THAT WE'VE KIND

OF ISOLATED OURSELVES BY

THAT.

WE TALKED ABOUT THESE GUYS

WALKING OFF THE CLIFF, BUT

WE'VE SEEN PEOPLE WALK

INTO WATER FOUNTAINS WITH

THEIR PHONES, AND THEY'RE

ADDICTED TO TEXTING.

SO WHEN YOU SEE PICTURES

OF PEOPLE GETTING TO KNOW

EACH OTHER IN PARKS AND

DOING THIS, THAT'S A

POSITIVE THING.

BUT IT IS LIKE THERE IS

SOMETHING IN US IN IS ON A

DRIVE TO GET MEANING OR

SOMETHING.

Andrew: AND YOU CAN

CERTAINLY DETERMINE THE

VALUE OF SOMETHING BY HOW

MUCH TIME YOU PUT INTO IT.

AND FOR CHRISTIANS WHO ARE

ASKING, IS THIS SOMETHING

I SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM?

OR IS THIS SOMETHING MY

FAMILY CAN DO?

ASK HOW MUCH TIME IS BEING

DEVOTED TO IT, AS OPPOSED

TO THE FACT THAT JESUS

TOLD PETER TO FOLLOW HIM.

AND HE SAID, AGAIN, PETER,

FOLLOW ME.

IT IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT

CALL FROM GOD, WHERE OUR

PRIORITIES SHOULD BE.

TERRY AND I ARE NOT

ENDORSING PLAYING THIS

GAME.

BUT IF YOU'RE GOING TO

PLAY, WE WANT TO URGE YOU

TO CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING

PRECAUTIONS: FIRST, CREATE

A SEPARATE GOOGLE PROFILE

TO LOG IN.

BECAUSE POKEMON ASKS FOR

PERSONAL ACCESS TO YOUR

PERSONAL G-MAIL TO PLAY

THE GAME.

TWO, BE AWARE OF YOUR

SURROUNDINGS.

SEEMS OBVIOUS, BUT IT IS

GOOD TO REMEMBER.

AND, THIRD, DON'T WANDER

AROUND IN AREAS YOU'RE

UNFAMILIAR WITH,

ESPECIALLY WITH YOUR HEAD

DOWN, STARING AT YOUR

PHONE.

Terry: AND BE

RESPECTFUL OF OTHER

PEOPLE'S PROPERTY.

YOU COULD FIND YOURSELF IN

A PRECARIOUS SCENARIO IF

YOU'RE WALKING AROUND THE

PROPERTY OF PEOPLE WHO

DON'T KNOW YOU.

DON'T PLAY THE GAME ALONE,

AND DON'T LET YOUR KIDS

PLAY ALONE.

SET A TIME LIMIT FOR YOUR

CHILD, IF YOUR CHILD IS

INVOLVED IN THIS.

YOU NEED TO KEEP

PRIORITIES IN ORDER.

> THE KEY IS MAKING SURE

TO STAY ALERT, AND USE

COMMON SENSE WHEN YOU'RE

PLAYING THIS.

AND REMEMBER, EVEN IN THE

WORLD OF VIRTUAL REALITY,

YOU STILL HAVE TO ABIDE BY

THE RULES OF THE REAL

WORLD.

Andrew: YOU HEARD

TERRY AND I SHARE OUR

THOUGHTS ON THIS TOPIC,

AND WE URGE YOU TO GO TO

Facebook TO TALK ABOUT

THIS.

DON'T MISS IT.

CHECK OUT "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE'S" Facebook

PAGE RIGHT AFTER THIS

SHOW.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL TO COME,

EVANGELIST CHRISTINE CAIN

TELLS US HOW YOU CAN GO

FROM SHAMEFUL TO

SHAME-FREE.

THE WORLD SAYS SHAME ON

YOU, BUT I'M DECLARING

SHAME OFF YOU.

Terry: PLUS, WE'LL BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

FAMILY, SO STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: WELL, SHAME

CAN TAKE ON MANY FORMS.

IT CAN HIDE IN THE SHADOWS

OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL,

CONFIDENT, AND

HIGH-ACHIEVING PERSON, AS

WELL AS IN THE HEART OF

THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN ABUSED

OR ABANDONED.

SHAME CAN HOLD US BACK IN

WAYS WE DON'T EVEN

REALIZE.

BUT EVANGELIST CHRISTINE

CAIN SAYS WE CAN ALL BE

SHAME-FREE.

TAKE A LOOK.

YOU KNOW,WHEN I WAS

BORN, I WAS LEFT IN A

HOSPITAL, UNNAMED AND

UNWANTED.

I EXPERIENCED SEXUAL ABUSE

AT THE HANDS OF MANY

DIFFERENT MEN FOR OVER A

DECADE OF MY LIFE.

I WAS A YOUNG WOMAN THAT

WAS FULL OF UNFORGIVENESS,

THAT WAS FULL OF SHAME AND

GUILT AND CONDEMNATION.

I WAS SO ANGRY.

I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT I

COULD GET PAST MY PAST.

THEN I ENCOUNTERED THE

REALITY OF A RELATIONSHIP

WITH JESUS CHRIST.

I DISCOVERED THAT MY PAST

DOES NOT NEED TO DEFINE MY

FUTURE.

I AM NOT THE WORKMANSHIP

OF SOMEONE ELSE'S MISTAKE.

EPHESIANS 2: 13, SAYS WE

ARE GOD'S WORKMANSHIP,

RECREATED IN CHRIST JESUS.

SO GOOD WORKS THAT GOD

PREPARED BEFOREHAND, THAT

WE SHOULD WALK IN THIS.

ALTHOUGH A WHOLE LOT OF

BAD THINGS WERE DONE TO

ME, I WAS ABLE TO MAKE

WHAT JESUS DID FOR ME

GREATER THAN WHAT ANYONE

ELSE DID TO ME.

BECAUSE OF THE REDEMPTIVE

WORK ON THE CROSS, BECAUSE

OF THE BLOOD THAT WAS SHED

ON CALGARY, I'M ABLE TO

MOVE BEYOND THE ABUSE AND

THE PAIN AND THE STRUGGLE

AND THE BROKENNESS OF MY

PAST, INTO THE AWESOME

FUTURE THAT JESUS CHRIST

DIED TO GIVE ME.

HE CAME NOT JUST SO I

COULD EXIST, BUT SO THAT

WE COULD HAVE LIFE, AND

LIFE MORE ABUNDANT.

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU,

NO MATTER WHAT HAS

HAPPENED TO YOU, NO MATTER

WHAT MISTAKES YOU HAVE

MADE, NO MATTER WHAT

FAILURES YOU HAVE MADE, I

WANT YOU TO KNOW IF YOU

WOKE UP THIS MORNING AND

THERE IS STILL BREATH IN

YOUR LUNGS, IT IS NOT TOO

LATE.

YOUR LIFE IS NOT OVER.

GOD HAS A PLAN.

HE HAS A PURPOSE.

HE HAS A DESTINY FOR YOU.

THE ENEMY IS A LIAR, BUT

HE IS VERY LOUD.

YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE

LOUD LIES OF THE ENEMY

WITH THE TRUTH OF GOD THAT

IS FOUND IN HIS WORD.

YOU ARE NOT AN ACCIDENT.

YOU WERE CREATED ON

PURPOSE FOR A PURPOSE.

YOU'RE CREATED IN THE

IMAGE OF GOD, AND FILLED

WITH GOD-GIVEN PURPOSE AND

DESTINY.

THE SAME JESUS THAT CAME

TO THIS UNWANTED, BROKEN,

ASHAMED WOMAN, WASHED AWAY

THE MESS OF MY LIFE AND

GAVE ME A HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

THAT SAME JESUS IS THERE

WITH YOU NOW.

HE CAN GIVE YOU A LIFE

BEYOND YOUR PAST.

JESUS CHRIST DECLARED OVER

YOUR LIFE, SHAME OFF OF

YOU.

THE WORLD SAYS SHAME ON

YOU, BUT I'M DECLARING

SHAME OFF YOU IN JESUS'

NAME.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

SHAME IS THE KIND OF THING

THAT PEN STRAIGHTS PENETRATES NOT JUST

OUR HEARTS, IT PENETRATES

OUR THINKING.

IT BEGINS TO DEFINE HOW WE

SEE OURSELVES, HOW WE

THINK THE WORLD SEES US,

AND THEN BEGINS TO IMPACT

WHAT WE THINK OUR VALUE

YOU.

I LOVE WHAT CHRISTINE HAD

TO SAY.

GOD CREATED YOU, AND

NOTHING THAT HAS HAPPENED

TO YOU, NOTHING ANYONE

ELSE HAS DONE TO YOU,

NOTHING YOU HAVE DONE TO

YOURSELF CAN CHANGE THE

FACT THAT YOU WERE MADE

WITH PURPOSE AND A PLAN,

IN THE IMAGE OF LIKENESS

OF THE LIVING GOD.

HE IS YOUR DAD.

AND HIS ARMS ARE WIDE OPEN

FOR YOU TO COME TO HIM AND

SAY, I NEED YOU.

I HAVE BEEN HURT, WOUNDED,

BROKEN.

OR I HAVE BLOWN IT.

I HAVE FALLEN ON MY FACE

AND I NEED A FRESH

BEGINNING.

THAT'S WHAT GOD IS ALL

ABOUT, REDEMPTION, TAKING

WHAT HAS BEEN LOST AND

REDEEMING IT AND GIVING IT

A NEW START.

HOW DO YOU GO TO THAT

PLACE THAT CHRISTINE

TALKED ABOUT?

YOU JUST SPEAK TO HIM.

HE IS HEAR WITH YOU RIGHT

NOW.

YOU JUST SAY, JESUS, I GET

THAT YOU DIED FOR ME.

I GET THAT YOU DIED FOR MY

SIN, FOR THE PAIN OF

WHAT'S BEEN DONE TO ME,

FOR THE PAIN OF WHAT I'VE

DONE TO OTHERS.

TODAY I RECOGNIZE I NEED

YOU.

COME INTO MY HEART,

FORGIVE MY SINS, GIVE ME A

NEW BEGINNING.

AND SHOW ME HOW TO LIVE

FOR YOU.

HERE IS THE GREAT THING

ABOUT THAT PRAYER, THEN

ASK HIM TO FILL YOU WITH

HIS HOLY SPIRIT BECAUSE

THE POWER TO LIVE

DIFFERENTLY, TO CHANGE AND

TO RECEIVE WHAT GOD WANTS

TO GIVE YOU, IS A GIFT

FROM GOD IN THE FORM OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND IT'S

YOURS FOR THE ASKING.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PRAY

WITH SOMEONE TODAY ABOUT A

NEED IN YOUR LIFE, OUR

NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

IT IS RIGHT THERE ON YOUR

SCREEN: 1-888-777-1999.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I'VE

GOT A NEED AND I'D LIKE TO

PRAY WITH SOMEONE.

THERE IS A FRIEND ON THE

OTHER END OF THAT LINE WHO

HAS PRAYED THE PRAYER WE

JUST TALKED ABOUT.

ANDREW?

Andrew: THANK YOU,

TERRY.

COMING UP, MEET THE WOMAN

WHO WAS NINE YEARS OLD IN

THIS UNFORGETTABLE PHOTO.

SEE HOW AN AMAZING NEW

TECHNOLOGY IS HELPING TO

HEAL HER PAIN AND SCARS.

ALL OF THAT IS NEXT RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

STAY WITH US.

Andrew: IT IS ONE OF

THE MOST FAMOUS PHOTOS

EVER.

THE IMAGE OF A VIETNAMESE

GIRL RUNNING THROUGH THE

STREETS WHEN THE NAPON

BOMB WAS SET OFF.

WENDY GRIFFITH BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Wendy: WHO CAN FORGET

THIS PICTURE,

NINE-YEAR-OLD KIM PHU

TRYING TO OUT RUN HER

BURNING FLESH AFTER THE

SOUTH VIETNAMESE DROPPED A

NAPON BOMB ON HER VILLAGE.

THE DOCTORS GAVE HER ZERO

CHANCE OF SURVIVAL AND

TOOK HER BODY TO THE

MORGUE.

BUT KIM PHU WASN'T READY

TO SURVIVE.

MY PARENTS FOUND ME

THERE.

Wendy: IN THE MORGUE?

I WAS NOT DEAD YET.

GOD HAD A PLAN FOR ME.

Wendy: TODAY KIM IS

52.

53.

HER BEAUTIFUL KIMONO HIDES

HER DEEP SCARS ON HER BACK

AND ARMS.

I HAD 17IN 17 OPERATIONS.

Wendy: KIM SPOKE TO A

GROUP OF DOCTORS IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. RECENTLY

ABOUT THE DAY THAT CHANGED

HER LIFE.

THE FIRE WAS EVERYWHERE

AROUND ME.

AND MY CLOTHES WERE BURNED

BY THE FIRE.

I THOUGHT ABOUT THE

MOMENT -- OH, MY GOODNESS.

I WOULD BE UGLY AND PEOPLE

WOULD SEE ME A DIFFERENT

WAY.

BUT I WAS SO TERRIFIED.

AND THEN I THOUGHT -- YOU

KNOW, I RUN OUT OF THAT

FIRE.

Wendy: FOUR DECADES

AFTER THAT HORRIBLE DAY,

KIM HAS NEW HOPE THAT HER

SCARS CANNOT ONLY LOOK

BETTER, BUT FEEL BETTER.

HER BIGGEST PROBLEM,

WHICH HAS BEEN A GREAT

THING ABOUT THE LASER IS

WHERE THE NAPON STUCK TO

HER AND CAUGHT ON FIRE.

IT IS REALLY TERRIBLE.

Wendy: DR. JILL WYLE

DISCOVERED THAT LASERS CAN

EFFECTIVELY TREAT BURN

SCARS BY REDUCING PAIN AND REDUCING PAIN A ND

INCREASING MOBILITY.

IT WASN'T UNTIL THE

LASER -- THE LASER HAS

LITTLE TINY HOLES THAT

VAPORIZE THE TISSUE, AND

THE NORMAL SKIN HEALS IT,

AND THAT IS A GAME-CHANGER

FOR BURN AND TRAUMA

TREATMENTS.

IT TAKES A SERIES OF

TREATMENTS, BUT IT IS THE

MOST AMAZING TECHNOLOGY

THAT BURN AND TRAUMA

SURVIVORS HAVE HAD IN OVER

100 YEARS.

Wendy: KIM HAS

ALREADY HAD FOUR OF THE

SEVEN TREATMENTS SHE

NEEDS.

MY SCARS ARE GETTING

MUCH LIGHTER AND SOFTER.

AND THAT HAS GIVEN ME HOPE

THAT A YEAR FROM NOW I

WILL BE FREE FROM THE

PAIN, AND MY SCAR LOOKS

MUCH BETTER.

Wendy: THE MAKER OF

THE LASER, LUMINOUS,

HELPED KICK OFF THE

INITIATIVE, A PROGRAM

DESIGNED TO HYMN KI HELP KIM AND

OTHER WAR HEROS TO RECEIVE

THIS TECHNOLOGY.

UNLESS YOU'RE FOR IT

OUT OF POCKET, WHICH IS

VERY, VERY EXPENSIVE, THEY

CANNOT BE TREATED.

WE'RE VERY, VERY PROUD TO

BE WORKING WITH THE HEROS

AND TRYING TO GET A CODE

THAT WILL ALLOW ALL OF THE

VETERANS' HOSPITALS -- AND

THERE ARE LIKE 99

VETERANS' HOSPITALS -- TO

TREAT ALL OF THESE PEOPLE.

Wendy: DESPITE THE

FEAR NO ONE WOULD WANT

HER, KIM MARRIED AND HAS

TWO SONS.

SHE SAYS HER CONVERSION TO

CHRISTIANITY AT THE AGE OF

19 CHANGED EVERYTHING.

Wendy: HOW DID THAT

HELP YOU FORGIVE THE

PEOPLE THAT DROPPED THE

BOMBS THAT BURNED YOU?

THE PICTURE OF JESUS

CHRIST, WHEN THEY PUT HIM

ON THE CROSS AND THEY

KILLED HIM, AND JESUS SAY,

"FATHER, FORGIVE THEM BUT

THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT

THEY'RE DOING."

THAT PICTURE, THAT WORD, I

SAID, LORD, HELP ME DO THE

SAME THING LIKE YOU DID.

AND GIVE ME THE POWER,

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH, GIVE

MU THME THE COMPASSION TO DO

THAT.

AND THEN I STARTED TO PRAY

FOR MY ENEMIES.

AND THE MORE I PRAYED FOR

MY ENEMIES, THE SOFTER MY

HEART BECAME.

Wendy: DR. DAVID

McDANIEL, A PIONEER IN

LASER TECHNOLOGY, IS KIM'S

STORY REMINDS HIM THAT

ALTHOUGH DOCTORS AND

NURSES TREAT THE OUTSIDE,

IT IS JESUS WHO HEALS THE

HEART.

THERE IS A VERY FAMOUS

SIGN AT A MISSIONS

HOSPITAL.

THE DOCTORS AND THE NURSES

TREAT, BUT JESUS HEALS.

WE USE THE LASERS AND THE

POWER TO HELP HEAL HER

SCARS, BUT REALLY JESUS

HEALED HER HEART.

Wendy: KIM SAYS THIS

PHOTO THAT THE VIETNAMESE

GOVERNMENT ONCE USED AS A

PROPAGANDA TOOL TO CONTROL

HER IS NOW A BLESSING SHE

CAN USE TO REACH THE

WORLD.

THAT PICTURE BECAME THE

POWERFUL GIFT FOR ME.

I CAN WORK WITH IT FOR

GOOD.

Wendy: WENDY

GRIFFITH, CBN NEWS.

Andrew: KIM IS SUCH A

LOVELY AND BEAUTIFUL LADY,

AND THE LOVE OF JESUS

SHINES THROUGH.

AND WATCHING HER GET

EMOTIONAL, THINKING OF

WHAT CHRIST DID ON THE

CROSS FOR HER AND FOR US,

IT IS A REMARKABLE THING.

Terry: SHE IS SET

FREE FROM A LOT.

GOD CAN DO SUCH AMAZING

THINGS IF WE LET HIM.

> WELL, VIEWERS LIKE YOU

ARE HELPING ALL OVER THE

WORLD, LIKE THIS DESPERATE

MOM FROM VIETNAM.

WHEN HER HUSBAND FIRST

LOOKED AT THEIR BABY, HE

ALMOST PASSED OUT, AND

THEIR NEIGHBORS CALLED THE

CHILD A MONSTER.

SHUR SIEN MOVED FROM

VIETNAM TO CHINA FIND A

JOB TO SUPPORT HER AGING

PARENTS.

SHE SOON MARRIED AND

BECAME PREGNANT.

AND THEN FIVE MONTHS INTO

HER PREGNANCY, SHE GOT BAD

NEWS.

THE DOCTOR SAID HE

COULDN'T SEE MY BABY'S

NOSE IN THE ULTRASOUND,

AND HE WOULD HAVE A SEVERE

CLEFT LIP, SO I COULD JUST

GO AHEAD AND ABORT HIM.

BUT I WOULD NEVER DO THAT.

HE WAS FLESH AND MY FLESH.

Terry: FOR THE FIRST

FEW MONTHS, SHE HAD TO

TAKE CARE OF HER BABY BY

HERSELF BECAUSE HER

HUSBAND WORKED LONG HOURS

AS A BRICK-MAKER.

I ALMOST PASSED OUT THE

FIRST TIME I SAW MY SON.

WHEN I FIRST SAW HIM

HOME, I HEARD NEIGHBORS

WHISPERING BEHIND MY BACK,

THAT I GAVE BIRTH TO A

MONSTER.

Terry: SO SHE KEPT

PEOPLE AWAY FROM HER BABY

AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

I SHOULDER SHU NOT TO

LISTEN TO WHAT PEOPLE SAY,

BUT I WAS TERRIFIED FOR

HIM.

Terry: SHU COULD

BARELY EAT.

HE WAS MA MALNOURISHED AND

HUNGRY ALL OF THE TIME.

I WAS REALLY WORRIED HE

WOULDN'T SURVIVE.

AND IF HE DID, EVERYONE

SAID HE WOULD BE MUTE.

I KNOW HE NEEDED SURGERY,

BUT IT COST WAY MORE THAN

WE HAD.

ONE DAY AT 2 a.m.,

WHEN MY BABY WAS ASLEEP, I

PRAYED, GOD, PLEASE

PROVIDE SURGERY FOR MY

SON.

THEN A FEW DAYS LATER, OUT

OF THE BLUE, I GOT A PHONE

CALL FROM CBN.

Terry: WE TOLD HER

THAT WE WERE SPONSORING

CLEFT LIP AND PALATE

SURGERY, AND HER SON WAS

INVITED TO RECEIVE FREE

SURGERY.

I WAS IN TEARS.

I FELT LIKE I WAS IN

HEAVEN, AND GOD HAD HEARD

MY PRAYERS.

Terry: SHU CAME OUT

OF SURGERY LOOKING LIKE A

BRAND NEW BOY.

NOW HE WON'T BE A MUTE,

AND HE WILL BE CALLING ME

DADDY ANY DAY.

I KNOW HE WILL HAVE A

BRIGHT FUTURE NOW.

BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP,

MY SON IS COMPLETELY

HEALED.

TODAY MY HOME IS FILLED

WITH LAUGHTER.

FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY

HEART, I THANK YOU.

YOU HAVE SHOWN US THAT

TRUE LOVE KNOWS NO

BORDERS.

Terry: THAT WAS MADE

POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF

FRIENDS LIKE YOU, WHO

SAID, WE WANT TO JOIN WITH

CBN AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE

IN THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD.

THIS LITTLE FAMILY HAD

SUCH A GREAT NEED AND NO

POSSIBLE WAY OF EVER

CORRECTING IT.

YOU STEPPED RIGHT INTO THE

MIDDLE OF THAT.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A

"700 CLUB" MEMBER?

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, BUT WHEN THOUSANDS

OF US DO THAT TOGETHER, WE

CAN TOUCH THOUSANDS AND

THOUSANDS OF LIVES.

GO TO YOUR PHONE AND CALL

BUT DECIDE TODAY TO DO

SOMETHING TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

ANDREW?

Andrew: TERRY AND I

LOVE TO PRAY FOR YOU.

AND WE WANT TO DO THAT

NOW.

WE HAVE RECEIVED PRAYER

REQUESTS, INCLUDING FROM

RACHEL, WHO WRITES: "GOD,

I NEED YOU.

I NEED A FINANCIAL

BREAKTHROUGH BECAUSE MY

DAUGHTER NEEDS MEDICINE

AND I DON'T HAVE A WAY TO

PAY FOR IT.

PLEASE MAKE A WAY."

EVELYN SAYS, "MY SON NEEDS

BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT, I

PRAY HE WILL BE RESTORED

AND GOD WILL REMOVE ALL OF

THE FEARS I HAVE."

AND MICHELLE WRITES,

"PLEASE PRAY FOR MY

HUSBAND.

HE HAS EARLY ONSET

ALZHEIMER'S AND I NEED TO

FIND A JOB AND WE NEED TO

FIND HOUSING."

FATHER GOD, WE HAVE DEAR

VIEWERS AND PEOPLE ON

Facebook WITH US, WHO

DESIRE A TOUCH FROM YOU,

LORD GOD.

FIRST WE LIFT UP RACHEL,

WHO NEEDS A FINANCIAL

BREAKTHROUGH.

FOR A CHILD WHO NEEDS

MEDICINE AND THEY DON'T

HAVE THE MONEY FOR IT.

FATHER GOD, BRING THAT

RESOURCE INTO THEIR LIFE.

WE ASK FOR FRIENDS OR

FAMILY, OR A PERFECT

STRANGER, SOMEONE TO MAKE

THAT POSSIBLE.

WE PRAY YOUR HOLY SPIRIT

IS ACTIVE AND MOVING ON

BEHALF OF THIS DEAR

FAMILY.

LORD GOD, FOR EVELYN,

WHO'S SON HAS LEUKEMIA, WE

KNOW YOU ARE A HEALER.

WE ASK YOUR HOLY SPIRIT TO

TOUCH THIS PRECIOUS FAMILY

AND BRING ABOUT A PHYSICAL

HEALING.

WE CAST OUT FEAR AND

ANXIETY, AND WE BIND IT IN

THE NAME OF JESUS, AND WE

SPEAK HEALING AND PEACE IN

JESUS' NAME.

AND FINALLY MICHELLE,

WHO'S HUSBAND HAS

ALZHEIMER'S, WE PRAY FOR

THIS COUPLE.

WE REBUKE THAT DREADFUL

ALZHEIMER'S.

LORD GOD, LET THE CRIES OF

THESE PEOPLE REACH YOU,

LORD.

WE KNOW YOU LOVE US, YOU

CARE FOR US, AND YOU HEAR

OUR CRY.

THANK YOU, LORD, IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THIS

VERSE: "DO NOT FARE FOR FEAR FOR

YOU WILL NOT BE ASHAMED.

YOU WILL NOT BE PUT TO

SHAME.

FOR YOU
