TODAY, AT THE FOOTHILL

OF THE

MOUNTAIN OF HISTORY.

THIS IS WHERE THE PEOPLE

HAVE

BEEN FOR THE LAST 2,000

YEARS.

PLUS, A THREE TIME GOLD

MEDAL

WINNER AND THE ATHLETE OF

THE 20TH

CENTURY.

JACKIE JOINER-KERSEE.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB". *

Pat: WELCOME, FOLKS, TO

THIS

EDITION OF THE "700 CLUB".

IT IS HOT OUT HERE.

THE HEAT INDEX IS GOING TO

BE OVER

100 DEGREES IN WASHINGTON

D.C..

THE NEW YORK POWERLINES ARE

MELTING

IN CERTAIN PARTS OF QUEENS

BECAUSE

OF THE OVERLOAD OF

AIR-CONDITIONING

AND THE HEAT.

IT'S REALLY BAD.

BUT, LOUISIANA IS WHERE THE

FOCUS OF

DISASTER HAS BEEN.

THAT STATE IS IN A STATE OF

EMERGENCY.

MASSIVE FLOODINGS HAVE

DESTROYED

THOUSANDS OF HOMES AND THE

RIVERS OF

LOUISIANA ARE RISING.

THAT'S RIGHT.

PEOPLE HAVE FLED FOR THEIR

LIVES AND

SOME DIDN'T MAKE IT.

ALL WEEKEND EMERGENCY CREWS

RACED TO

RESCUE TRAPPED PEOPLE.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE

LATEST.

GET OUT.

A DRAMATIC MOMENT CAUGHT

ON

CAMERA.

AS RESCUERS TRIED

FRANTICALLY TO

PULL A WOMAN FROM HER

SUBMERGED CAR.

WE ARE COMING.

MINUTES LATER, SHE

EMERGES SAFELY

FROM UNDER THE WATER.

GET MY DOG.

THIS WAS JUST ONE OF

20,000

RESCUE THAT HAPPENED ALL

OVER BATON

ROUGE THIS WEEKEND.

THIS COULD HAVE ENDED

REALLY

BADLY IF THEY DIDN'T COME

TO HELP US

OUT.

AS EMERGENCY CREWS

BATTLED

MASSIVE FLOODING STRONG

ENOUGH TO

KNOCKDOWN TRACTOR TRAILERS

OFF THE

HIGHWAY.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ESCAPED

TAKING

ON WHAT THEY CAN CARRY.

WE HAVE LOST TRAILERS,

APARTMENTS, OUR HOUSE HAS

GONE UNDER.

THERE IS NOTHING LEFT.

LOUISIANA IS IN A STATE

OF

EMERGENCY WITH FOUR

PARISHES

DECLARED AN EMERGENCY

DISASTER.

DRENCHED WITH 21 INCHES OF

RAIN IN

24 HOURS.

OBVIOUSLY THIS IS A

SERIOUS EVENT.

IT IS ON GOING AND NOT

OVER.

THAT IS BECAUSE RIVERS

ARE STILL

RISING AND NOT EXPECTED TO

STOP

UNTIL TUESDAY. WITH UP TO

10 INCHES

FALLING UPON LOUISIANA.

SEVERAL MORE INCHES FELL

SATURDAY.

RESCUERS PADDLED DOWN

FLOODED

STREETS AND SOME STREETS

CUTOFF

STRANDING HUNDREDS OF

MOTORIST.

PEOPLE STEPPED IN LIKE THIS

MAN

RESCUING SOMEONE FROM A

SINKING CAR.

I SAID DON'T WORRY.

I'M GOING TO GET YOU OUT.

AUTHORITIES ARE WARNING

RESIDENTS

TO STAY HOME AND OFF THE

ROAD.

IF THE SIGN IS THERE TO

STAY OFF

THE ROADS, IT'S THERE FOR A

REASON.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

HAS

DEPLOYED THE NATIONAL GUARD

TO HELP

WITH THE RESCUE.

Pat: TERRY, POINTING OUT

WITH THE

AFTER MATH, AND IT'S HOT

OUT THERE.

THE DRYWALL IS OUT.

I WAS THERE WITH KATRINA.

THEY HAVE TO STRIP THE

STUDS TO

MAKE SURE THEY GET RID OF

THE MOLD.

WE ARE GOING TO DO WHAT WE

CAN TO

HELP THE PEOPLE OF

LOUISIANA DURING

THIS TIME OF CRISIS.

WELL, OUT IN MILWAUKEE,

WISCONSIN,

WHICH IS ARMED BY VIOLENCE.

AFTER A

MAN WAS SHOT BY A POLICE.

THE SHOOTING DEATH OF A

BLACK MAN

SPARKED RIOTS AND

DESTRUCTION IN

MILWAUKEE OVER THE WEEKEND.

PROTESTERS THROUGH ROCKS AT

POLICE

AND SET FIRE TO CARS AND

BUILDINGS.

BUSINESSES WERE DESTROYED.

IT HAPPENED AFTER AN

OFFICER SHOT A

23-YEAR-OLD SMITH DURING A

TRAFFIC

STOP. AUTHORITIES SAY SMITH

FLED AND

WHEN POLICE ORDERED HIM TO

STOP, HE

TURNED AROUND WITH A GUN IN

HIS HAND.

IT TURNS OUT THAT GUN WAS

STOLEN.

IN POLITICAL NEWS.

DONALD TRUMP LAYS OUT HIS

PLAN TO

DEFEAT GLOBAL ISLAMIC

TERRORISM

TODAY OVER THE WEEKEND TO

TRY TO

EXPLAIN WHY HE'S NOT

POLLING WELL

AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON.

BOTTOM LINE, HE'S BLAMING

THE MEDIA.

HE CALLS THE POLLS

DISGUSTING AND

CORRUPT AND HE SAYS THEY

ARE TAKING

HIS WORDS OUT OF CONTEXT

AND

IGNORING HIS RALLIES.

HE'S SAYING THERE IS A

POTENTIAL OF

VOTER FRAUD.

HE'S BEING URGED TO FOCUS

ON HIS

DEMOCRATIC RIVAL.

STILL KNOWN AS THE

FASTEST MAN IN

THE WORLD, THE JAMAICAN

TRACK STAR

AND CREDIT ---ING GOD.

IN THE PAST ALSO TWEETING

ABOUT HIS

CHRISTIAN FAITH.

BY THE WAY, HE'S NOT THE

ONLY

OLYMPIAN GIVING GLORY TO

GOD.

AFTER HIS VICTORY OF

THANKING GOD

TWEETING "JESUS DID IT AND

GOD IS

POWER" IS MORE THAN ONE

WAYS FOR MR.

KURT BECAUSE HIS MOTHER WAS

ALSO NOT

ALLOWED TO COMPETE IN THE

OLYMPICS

BECAUSE OF APARTHEID IN

SOUTH AFRICA.

WHEN SHE'S ON THE

WRESTLING

MATCH, SHE'S TAKING HER

GAME TO RIO.

WE CAUGHT UP WITH HAILEY AT

THE U.S.

OLYMPIC TRAIN CENTER IN

COLORADO

SPRINGS WHERE SHE QUOTED

HOW FAITH

HAS MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE.

SHE NEEDED TO QUALIFY

FOR THE RIO

GAMES THIS SUMMER AND SHE

DID IT.

WHO DID YOU CALL FIRST?

MY DAD.

WHAT DID YOU SAY?

I WAS JUST REALLY HAPPY.

I THINK I WAS CRYING

ACTUALLY,

THINKING BACK ON IT. I WAS

EXCITED

WE WERE GOING TO RIO.

OUR FAMILY HAS BEEN THROUGH

A LOT

THIS YEAR AND FINALLY I WAS

ABLE TO

REACH MY GOAL FOR SOMETHING

I HAVE

WORKED FOR 8 YEARS.

HAILEY'S FAMILY WILL

WATCH HER

AUGUST 17TH FROM THE STANDS.

HER GRANDMOTHER WILL BE

WATCHING HER

FROM HEAVEN.

SHE LOST HER GRANDMOTHER

LAST YEAR.

SHE WAS ALWAYS A GREAT

ROLE MODEL

AND SHE WILL LIVE ON

THROUGH THIS

LEGACY.

I WAS AN ATHEIST FOR

THE FIRST

PART OF MY LIFE.

NOW I CAN SPREAD HIS WORD

AND HIS

LOVE.

IT'S A BIG PLATFORM FOR ME

TO DO

THAT.

I CAN'T WAIT TO LET HIM

SHOW ME.

HER COLLEGE ROOMMATES

OPENED UP

HER EYES.

IN COLLEGE, MY ROOMMATE,

MEEGHAN

BLACK, SHE WAS SUPER

RELIGIOUS. SHE

NEVER PRESSURED ME.

SHE WOULD JUST SAY, HEY,

CAN I PRAY

FOR YOU BEFORE YOU WRESTLE.

THEN I SAID TO HER, I THINK

I

BELIEVE IN GOD.

HOW HAS THAT CHANGED

YOUR LIFE?

IT'S GIVEN ME FAITH IN

GOD.

I WANT TO PRAY FOR PEOPLE

AND ON

TERRORISM AND SOCIAL MEDIA.

SHE'S COMPETED IN THE

OLYMPIC

WRESTLING TEAM FOR 14

YEARS. HE

BELIEVES FAITH IS HELPING

THEM AND

GIVES THEM AN EDGE.

I THINK PEOPLE WITHOUT

FAITH

WOULD SAY NO.

BUT I THINK WE ALL NEED

SOMETHING TO

STABILIZE US. WE ALL NEED

SOMETHING

WHEN THE WORLD GETS HECTIC

THAT WHEN

WE COME BACK, HE CAN GIVE

US SOME

PEACE. THAT'S WHAT FAITH

DOES AND

THAT'S WHAT CHRIST DOES FOR

US.

COLORADO SPRINGS HAS

BEEN HER

HOME FOR THE PAST YEAR

WHERE SHE HAS

DONE NOTHING BUT EAT, SLEEP

AND

WRESTLE.

NOW SHE'S IN RIO WHERE SHE

IS WILL

BRING HOME THE GOLD.

THANKS, STEPHANIE.

HAILEY COMPETES ON THE 17.

SHE'S NOT JUST ASKING FOR

GOLD, JUST

PURE HEAD AND RIGHT

MIND-SET.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ON

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: THIS IS CHANGING THE

PERCEPTION OF FEMININITY.

BELIEVE ME.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE

WOMEN WORLD

WRESTLERS.

SHE'S SPINNING ON THAT AND

GETTING

ON SOMEONE'S BACK.

IT'S A WHOLE DIFFERENT

MATTER.

I HAD ABOUT TWO MOVES IN

WRESTLING

AND THEY WERE VERY

EFFECTIVE.

THAT'S ALL YOU NEED.

Pat: THEY HAVE WOMEN

BOXERS.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE

HUSBAND OF

THESE WOMEN WHETHER THEY

ARE GOING

TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE THE

WIVES.

THEY ARE NOT SPEAKING.

BUT YOUR GRANDSON IS A

GREAT

WRESTLER, IS HE NOT?

HE WAS THE CAPTAIN OF

WRESTLING

IN SCHOOL. HE'S VERY STRONG

AS A

BULL.

HE WAS GOOD. I WRESTLED IN

A MURAL,

BUT NOT PROFESSIONALLY; NOT

IN A

TEAM.

ANYHOW, THAT GIRL IS, WOW,

WOMEN

BOXERS?

YES.

THERE ARE MARTIAL

ARTIST? WOW.

DID YOU EVER DO THAT STUFF?

PROBABLY NOT.

BUT I ADMIRE IT.

Pat: YOU WERE SINGING AND

LOOKING

FEMININE.

Terry: YOU CAN LOOK

FEMININE AND

DO THIS.

IT USED TO BE.

THIS HAS COME A LONG WAY.

Terry: UP NEXT, THEY ARE

JEWS

SURROUNDED BY THOUSANDS OF

YEARS OF

JEWISH HISTORY, AND YET

THEY ARE

BEING CALLED SETTLERS.

TO CREATE A NARRATIVE

THAT WE

DON'T BELONG IS A MYTH,

THERE IS NO

GREATER IRONY TO TELL JEWS

THEY

DON'T BELONG IN JERUSALEM.

THAT IS MOUNT OLIVE,

NEXT.

TOMORROW, ON THE "700

CLUB".

Pat: FROM THE MOUNT OF

OLIVES

PEOPLE CAN LOOK DOWN ON THE

TEMPLE

MOUNT AND SEE THE

SURROUNDING

BUILDINGS.

THE MOUNT OF OLIVES HAS

BEEN AROUND

FOR JEWS FOR THOUSANDS OF

YEARS.

NOW IT'S TERRITORY.

THEY VISITED A JEWISH

FAMILY LIVING

THERE AMONG THE SEA OF

ARABS.

THE BIBLE MENTIONS THE

MOUNT OF

OLIVES.

THERE JESUS WENT OVER

JERUSALEM. WAS

ARRESTED AND ASCENDED TO

HEAVEN.

IT'S A PLACE WHERE CHRIST,

IS A LAND

FOR JERUSALEM.

WE ARE LOOKING AT THE

SOUTHEAST

CORNER OF THE OLD CITY OF

JERUSALEM.

I VISITED FLEISHER AND HIS

FAMILY

WHO LIVE HERE ON THE SLOPES

OF MOUNT

OF OLIVES.

SOME CALL HIM A SETTLER AND

SAY HIS

COMMUNITY IS A STUMBLING

BLOCK TO

PEACE. HE SAYS JEWS HAVE

BEEN HERE

FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS AND

NOT GOING

TO BE BULLIED OUT OF IT.

THOSE ARE BUILT AROUND

THE WALLS

OF JERUSALEM AND THIS IS

THE TEMPLE

MOUNT.

IF WE LOOK A LITTLE MORE TO

THE

EAST, WE SEE THE

MAGNIFICENT MOUNT

OF OLIVES CEMETERY WHICH IS

180,000

JEWISH GRAVES.

I CALL IT THE MOUNTAIN OF

HISTORY

FROM 3,000 YEARS AGO.

THIS PAGE OF JEWISH

HISTORY IS

LOCATED IN THE EASTERN PART

OF THE

CITY WHICH MANY REFER TO AS

EAST

JERUSALEM.

THIS LAND WAS TAKEN FROM

ISRAEL

IN 1948 BY THE BRITISH ARMY.

IN 1967 WE LIBERATED OR

CAPTURED

THESE LANDS AND RETURNED

BACK TO

PLACES LIKE THIS.

THAT'S WHY I THOUGHT IT WAS

SO FUNNY

WHEN PEOPLE CLAIM THAT WE

DON'T HAVE

A RIGHT TO BE HERE. I JUST

POINT TO

THIS MOUNTAIN AND SAY, LOOK

AT IT.

IT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.

THIS IS WHERE WE HAVE BEEN

FOR THE

LAST 3 YEARS.

THEY PURCHASED THE LAND

IN 1700s

TO EXPAND THE CEMETERY.

THE EXPANSION DID NOT

HAPPEN. NOW

JEWISH FAMILIES LIVE ON

THAT LAND.

CHILDREN PLAY ON THE

COMPOUND IN A

MOSTLY ARAB NEIGHBORHOOD.

MOSTLY THE PEOPLE HERE

ARE ARAB

AND MUSLIMS AND SOME THAT

BELIEVE IN

THE JIHAD IDEOLOGY.

DO YOU LIVE WITH PEACE?

INSTEAD OF THE WORD

PEACE, WE

LIVE IN A NORMALIZATION.

WE SEE OURSELVES AS THE

INDIGENOUS

RETURNEES.

FLEISHER SAYS THEY DEAL

WITH

WEEKLY ATTACKS.

HOW MANY CHILDREN DO YOU

HAVE?

I HAVE TWO CHILDREN.

YOU LIVE IN THIS

ENVIRONMENT?

MANY SAY I PUT THEM IN

DANGER.

BUT WE ARE TEACHING THEM TO

BE

COURAGEOUS IN THE FACE OF

BULLIES

WHICH IS A JEWISH TRADITION.

DAVID VERSUS GOLIATH

TRADITION AND

THAT IS NOT TO LET PEOPLE

PUSH YOU

AROUND AND NOT TO LET

PEOPLE ERASE

YOUR STORY AND TRY TO TELL

YOU THAT

YOU DON'T BELONG IN

JERUSALEM.

THERE IS NO GREATER IRONY

TO TELL

JEWS THEY DON'T BELONG IN

JERUSALEM.

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF

JERUSALEM

WERE DIVIDED?

PEOPLE THINK THAT TO

DIVIDE

JERUSALEM AND TO DIVIDE

RACE AND

ETHNICITY AND MOVE.

THAT IS PROGRESS? IT'S SO

REGRESSIVE.

WE STAND AGAINST DIVIDING

THIS CITY

AND DIVIDING THIS LAND.

YOU SAY YOU ARE

SETTLERS?

WE ARE NOT SETTLERS, WE

ARE

RESETTLERS.

AND TO CREATE A NARRATIVE

THAT WE

ARE FOREIGNERS IN THIS LAND

IS A

MYTH TO DELEGITIMIZE PEOPLE

OF THIS

LAND.

HOW DO YOU VIEW THIS?

IT'S THIS MIND-SET.

IF YOU SAY, HERE IS MY

WIFE, TAKE

HER, JUST DON'T HURT ME.

THIS IS YOUR LAND.

AND IT SHOWS YOU TO BE A

COMPLETELY

SPINLESS CREATURE. EVERY

PLACE THAT

WE ABANDON AND THAT WE

SHRINK AWAY

FROM, BECOMES OUR CANCER.

IF IT'S GAZA, IT BECOMES A

HOME FOR

THEM.

YOU HAVE TO BE TOUGH.

YOU HAVE TO BE SUPER POWER.

THE MESSAGE OF ISRAEL IS

ONE OF

TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITY FOR

A BETTER

LIFE.

HOW DO WE PRAY FOR YOU

HERE, WE

ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF IT

HERE?

ONE OF THE WITH AN --

WAYS TO

PRAY FOR JERUSALEM IS TO

COME HERE

AND BE PART OF THE STORY IN

SOMEWAY.

WE HAVE TO TAKE IT ALSO IN

THE REALM

OF PRAYER, IN THE REALM OF

HOPE AND

THE REALM OF ACTION. THE

UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA DOES NOT

RECOGNIZE

JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITAL OF

ISRAEL.

PUT YOUR EMBASSIES IN

JERUSALEM.

WHAT A DISRESPECT TO

JERUSALEM AND

THE GOD OF THE BIBLE THAT

YOU DON'T

RECOGNIZE JERUSALEM AS A

JEWISH

COMMON WEALTH.

THE PROMISES OF THE BIBLE.

SCOTT ROSS, MOUNT OF

OLIVES,

JERUSALEM.

Pat: THAT'S FASCINATING.

YOU KNOW, IF WE CAN GET OUR

HISTORY

RIGHT.

I HAVE MET A CERTAIN AMOUNT

OF

PALESTINIAN PEOPLE. THEY

ARE SO

FILLED WITH A NARRATIVE

THAT IS

FALSE. THEY ARE JUST

DILUTED.

THEY DO NOT STICK TO FACTS.

THEY DON'T BELIEVE IT. THEY

BUILD A

TISSUE OF FANTASY.

THEN THE FANTASY BECOMES

REALITY AND

THEY ARE GOING TO FIGHT TO

PRESERVE

THE FANTASY. ALL IT IS IS

FANTASY.

THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE

SAYING, THIS

IS THE LAND.

OUR GRAVES, LOOK WHAT'S

HAPPENED.

WE HAVE BEEN HERE FOR

THOUSANDS OF

YEARS. WE ARE NOT SETTLERS.

THIS IS

OUR LAND.

TERRY?

Terry: NEXT, A CHAOTIC

LIFE COMES

TO A HEAD ON 911.

FEAR, I HAVE NEVER FELT

FEAR LIKE

THAT IN MY LIFE.

HOW SHE FOUND PEACE OF

ONE OF THE

AMERICA'S DARKEST DAYS,

WHEN WE COME

BACK.

WE ARE GOING TO PROVE

GOD IS NOT DEAD.

Terry: WHAT DOES

REJECTION DO TO A

YOUNG GIRL.

IN ANGELA MACINTOSH'S LIFE.

SHE WANTED LOVE AND

ACCEPTANCE AND

FOUND IT THE DAY SHE NEEDED

IT THE

MOST.

AS A CHILD I WOULD THINK

OF MY

PARENTS AND I WOULD FEEL

VERY ALONE.

THERE WAS A DEEP LONGING TO

BE PART

OF MY FAMILY.

I WOULD WONDER WHY I HAD TO

BE BORN.

MY FATHER WAS ALREADY

MARRIED WHEN

HE BEGAN SEEING MY MOTHER.

THEY HAD A RELATIONSHIP

WHICH

CULMINATED IN MY BIRTH. MY

FATHER

CHOSE NOT TO HAVE ANY

CONTACT WITH

ME.

MY MOTHER WAS RELATIVELY

YOUNG AND

SHE GAVE ME TO MY GREAT

AUNTY.

BUT MY MOTHER ALSO HAD

OTHER

CHILDREN THAT SHE KEPT.

SO, I GREW UP BEING TOLD I

WAS

UNACCEPTABLE.

I WOULD ASK QUESTIONS.

I WOULD WONDER WHY I NEVER

SAW THEM.

NO CALLS, NO BIRTHDAY CARD.

WHY DID MY PARENTS NOT WANT

ME.

MY GREAT AUNT THAT RAISED

ME, SHE

WOULD REINFORCE THAT SENSE

OF

REJECTION BY TELLING ME

THINGS LIKE,

CHILDREN LIKE YOU, WHOSE

PARENTS

AREN'T MARRIED, THEY CALL

THEM

BASTARDS. IT MADE ME FEEL

ASHAMED

FEELING THAT YOUR OWN

PARENTS DON'T

LOVE YOU, WHY WOULD YOU

FEEL LOVABLE

BY ANYBODY ELSE? MY

FATHER, I MET

HIM LITERALLY ONE TIME IN

MY LIFE.

IT WASN'T LIKE YOU SEE IN

THE MOVIES

WHERE PEOPLE FINALLY FIND

THEIR

PARENTS AND RUSH THEM TO

THEIR LONG

LOST MOTHER OR FATHER'S ARM.

IT WASN'T LIKE THAT.

HE WAS A STRANGER TO ME. I

WANTED SO

MUCH TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP

WITH MY

DAD. BUT I KNEW BETTER TO

EXPECT

ANYTHING.

HE JUST COULDN'T.

I REMEMBER THE BIBLE SONG,

"JESUS

LOVES ME, YES I KNOW".

IF SOMEONE DIDN'T LOVE ME

ENOUGH TO

GIVE ME A FAMILY. THERE WAS

A CHURCH

I MET IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

I WAS ABLE TO WALK TO IT.

I DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE I WAS

SUPPOSED

TO READ THE BIBLE.

I JUST THOUGHT I WAS

SUPPOSED TO

SHOW UP TO CHURCH AND HEAR

A MESSAGE

AND GO HOME.

I LEARNED THAT YOU WERE A

SINNER AND

YOU NEEDED FORGIVENESS.

THE CHURCH, FOR ME, IT WAS

RULES

WITHOUT LOVE.

I JUST SAID, FORGET IT.

I WAS ANGRY WITH GOD.

I DIDN'T BELIEVE GOD REALLY

LOVED ME.

I JUST WALKED AWAY.

I JUST HOPED TO FIND

HAPPINESS.

I ACTUALLY WOUND UP JOINING

THE

MILITARY AND GOT MARRIED

YOUNG AND

ONLY LASTED A COUPLE YEARS.

I WAS ALL IN, AND HE WAS

NOT.

THEN I MET MY SECOND

HUSBAND.

HE WAS EMOTIONALLY ABUSIVE.

HE MOCKED THE FACT THAT I

WASN'T

LOVED BY MY PARENTS.

THAT WAS VERY HEARTBREAKING

AND

SHAMEFUL TO ME.

YOU ARE DEPENDING ON THEM

TO LOVE

YOU. I WANTED TO KNOW THAT

I WAS

WANTED AND IT NEVER

HAPPENED.

IT WAS A TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER

11, 2001.

I REMEMBER IT BEING A

BEAUTIFUL DAY.

I WAS WORKING FOR THE

FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT. I REMEMBER

PASSING BY A

TV MONITOR AND PEOPLE

STANDING

AROUND IT STARING AT IT. I

STOPPED

AND LOOKED AT IT.

THERE WAS ALL OF THIS CHAOS

IN NEW

YORK. ONE OF THE TWIN

TOWERS BEING

ON FIRE.

THERE WAS AN ANNOUNCEMENT

OVER THE

PA SYSTEM. SOMETHING IS

HAPPENING IN

WASHINGTON D.C.. THE

PENTAGON HAD

BEEN HIT.

YOU CAN SEE THE SMOKE FROM

THE

PENTAGON.

THERE IS ALL THIS HAPPENING

AND

PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHY IT'S

HAPPENING.

THE FEAR IN THE AIR, I HAVE

NEVER

FELT A FEAR LIKE THAT IN MY

LIFE.

I DROVE HOME AND THE FIRST

THING I

DID WAS TURN ON THE TV.

BY THAT TIME THERE WAS

COVERAGE OF

PEOPLE JUMPING OUT OF THE

TWIN

TOWERS.

I WAS SITING THERE STUNNED.

AT THAT MOMENT I WANTED GOD

TO EXIST

SO MUCH.

GOD, PLEASE BE THERE, I

HOPE YOU ARE

THERE.

I WAS VERY AFRAID BECAUSE

IF THERE

IS NOT A GOD, THERE IS NO

HOPE.

FEAR BECAME THE OVERRIDING

EMOTION.

THE NEXT THING I KNEW WAS,

YOU HAVE

TO GET BACK TO CHURCH.

YOU HAVE TO GET BACK TO

CHURCH.

THAT SUNDAY, I WALKED

THROUGH THAT

DOOR, AND FROM THAT DAY

FORWARD, IT

WAS FULL STEAM AHEAD WITH

ME AND

GOD.

THAT CHURCH THEY PRESENTED

GOD TO ME

IN A WAY I HAVE NEVER

EXPERIENCED

HIM BEFORE.

I FINALLY WAS TOLD, READ

YOUR BIBLE.

READ IT EVERYDAY.

THAT'S WHERE YOU MEET JESUS.

WHO KNEW? I DIDN'T KNOW.

I REMEMBER READING IN

JEREMIAH WHERE

GOD TOLD ISRAEL, I HAVE

LOVED YOU

WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE.

JUST THAT PHRASE MELTED ME.

HE BECAME A PERSON. THE

PERSON WITH

MY EMOTION AND MY FEELING

THAT

UNDERSTANDS ME. I WANTED

GOD AND I

WANTED HIM TOTALLY,

SPIRITUALLY,

EMOTIONALLY, MENTALLY, I

WAS READY.

I SAID, I WANT YOU TO LOVE

ME WITH

AN EVER LASTING LOVE.

FINALLY, I HAD A FATHER AND

NOT JUST

A FATHER, BUT THE PERFECT

FATHER.

IT WAS FREEDOM FOR ME.

FREEDOM FROM REJECTION,

FREEDOM FROM

LACK OF SELF-ESTEEM.

FREEDOM FROM FEAR OF BEING

LONELY.

HE HELPED ME TO UNDERSTAND

I HAVE

ALWAYS BEEN YOUR FATHER.

YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH WHAT

YOU HAD

TO GO THROUGH, BUT I WAS

ALWAYS YOUR

FATHER.

SO I FORGIVE MY EARTHLY

FATHER AND I

RECEIVE THE LOVE OF MY

HEAVENLY

FATHER.

I AM SETTLED IN MY SOUL. I

AM

CONTENT AND AT PEACE. I WAS

WELCOMED

INTO ARMS OF JESUS, I WAS

WELCOMED

INTO THE ARMS OF MY FATHER.

HE IS MY HOME.

I AM LOVABLE.

Terry: AND NOT JUST

LOVABLE, BUT

LOVED.

YOU KNOW, GOD IS NOT A

PERSON AS YOU

AND I KNOW EACH OTHER, BUT

WE ARE

MADE, THE WORD OF GOD SAYS,

IN HIS

IMAGE AND LIKENESS. WE HAVE

CHARACTERISTICS OF HIM IN

US. AND WE

HAVE A DRIVE TOWARD HIM IN

US. WE

WANT TO KNOW WHO WE BELONG

TO, WHERE

WE COME FROM.

THERE IS A POWER IN THAT.

THERE IS A KNOWLEDGE IN

THAT.

OUR IDENTITY IS SECURE WHEN

WE KNOW

WE ARE LOVED AND WANTED AND

CARED

FOR.

HE SAYS, I HAVE LOVED YOU

WITH AN

EVER LASTING LOVE.

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HERE.

YOU KNOW, I REMEMBER YEARS

AGO

SEEING A BUMPER STICKER, IF

YOU

DON'T FEEL CLOSE TO GOD,

GUESS WHO

MOVED.

SOMETIMES LIFE TAKES US ON

THESE

SIDE PATHS, BUT GOD IS

ALWAYS

WHISPERING OUR NAME.

OUR GOD IS A CHRISTIAN

FAITH AND THE

ONLY GOD THAT WANTS TO BE

KNOWN AND

LOVES US AS WE ARE AND

OFFERS

RECONCILIATION AND

FORGIVENESS AND

REDEPOSITION TO US. IN

OTHER FAITHS

PEOPLE ARE STRIVING TO

PLEASE SOME

ANGRY GOD WHO HAS TO BE

SOMEHOW HAS

HIS DEMANDS MET AND YET NOT

BE

RELATIONAL. OUR GOD WANTS

US TO KNOW

HIM. HE CREATED US. HE HAS

YOU IN

MIND FROM BEFORE HE EVER

CREATED A

THING. TODAY HE WANTS YOU

TO KNOW

HIM THE SAME WAY ANGELA

CAME TO KNOW

HIM. GOD IS NOT ANGRY WITH

YOU. HE'S

NOT DISTANT.

THOUGH YOU MAY FEEL THAT

WAS AS YOU

CLOSE YOURSELF OFF TO HIM.

IF YOU ARE NOT SURE OF THIS

YOURSELF, BEGIN TO READ HIS

WORD.

IT CHANGED MY LIFE.

IT WILL CHANGE YOURS.

GET A COPY OF THE BIBLE AND

BEGIN TO

READ THE BOOK OF JOHN.

HE TELLS YOU ABOUT THE

PROMISES GOD

MADE TO US ON THE

DEFINITION OF WHO

HE IS.

HE LOVES YOU.

HE DESIRES TO BE YOUR DAD,

TO BE

CLOSE TO YOU.

JESUS GAVE EVERYTHING HE

HAD SO THAT

YOU CAN HAVE RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE

ONE WHO CREATED YOU.

NOW, DON'T WAIT ANY LONGER.

YOU

KNOW, WHEN WE MAKE EXCUSES,

WHEN WE

STAND APART FROM GOD, WE

OPEN THE

DOOR TO SO MANY HURTFUL

THINGS

COMING INTO OUR LIVES.

HURTFUL

THINGS LIKE ANGELA

EXPERIENCED.

GOD MEANT FOR US BEING

FAMILY, BUT

HERE IS THE THING.

IF YOUR FAMILY WASN'T THERE

FOR YOU.

IF YOUR FAMILY WASN'T EVEN

WOUNDING

AND HURTFUL TO YOU, YOU CAN

FIND A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GODLIKE

ANGELA

FOUND.

LOVE COVERS THE MULTITUDE

OF SIN.

RIGHT NOW, WILL YOU PRAY

WITH ME.

ASK JESUS TO COME INTO YOUR

LIFE,

INTO YOUR HEART.

PRAY THIS PRAYER.

JESUS, ARE I HAVE KNOWN

YOUR NAME.

KNOW A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOU

AND HAVE

WONDERED FOR YEARS.

THINK. HELP ME UNDERSTAND

MORE OF

WHO YOU ARE.

AND TODAY, JESUS, I SAY I

SINNER IN NEED OF A

MEDALLIST WINNING GOLD AND

TWO

BRONZE.

HER 1988 WORLD RECORD STILL

STANDS.

TO MAKE IT IN AN OLYMPIC

TEAM IS

TOUGH, BUT YOU ARE NOT

ALWAYS GOING

TO COME OUT ON TOP.

THE FIRST TIME I WALKED

AWAY WITH A

SILVER MEDAL. BUT I KNEW I

CAN DO

BETTER.

IT'S THE MENTAL TOUGHNESS

THAT

SEPARATES THE GOOD, THE

BEST AND THE

GREATEST.

FOR ME, I WANTED TO BE THE

GREATEST

ATHLETE.

WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR

TOUGHNESS?

FROM MY HOMETOWN IN ST.

LOUIS

LEARNING SURVIVAL SKILLS.

BUT THEN

YOU GREW UP JUST PLAYING A

TAG GAME

WHEN YOU WERE 9 YEARS OF

AGE. YOU

ACTUALLY USED THOSE SAME

SKILLS TO

MAKE IT THROUGH LIFE.

HER LIFE WAS NEVER EASY

BEGINNING

WITH TWO OF THE BIGGEST

HURDLES.

LOSING MY MOM WHEN I WAS

A

FRESHMAN IN COLLEGE.

SHE WAS MY BEST FRIEND, MY

SUPPORT.

IT WAS REALLY ROUGH. THE

SECOND

CHALLENGE WAS BEING AN

ASTHMATIC AND

TRYING TO BE THE BEST

ATHLETE IN THE

WORLD AND NOT KNOWING IF

I'M GOING

TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE

BECAUSE I'M

ALLERGIC TO THE GRASS AND

SOME OF

THE DAYS THAT I'M OUT ON

THE TRACK.

WHAT DROVE YOU?

I REALLY WANTED TO BE

ONE OF THE

BEST. I REMEMBER COMPETING

IN MY

FIRST RACE AT THE AGE OF

NINE I

FINISHED LAST. I KNEW IF I

PRACTICED

EVERYDAY, THE WORK WAS

PAYING OFF.

YOU WALKED THROUGH THIS,

WHAT'S

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE FOR

YOUR

REENTRY BACK HOME?

YOU GO BACK TO THE

DRAWING BOARD.

YOU HAVE TO REALLY REINVENT

YOURSELF.

YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO

STILL WORK

HARD.

YOU CAN'T BECOME

COMPLACENT, ASSESS

WHAT WENT WELL FOR YOU AND

WHAT WENT

WRONG, BUT STICK WITH IT.

STICK WITH IT SHE DID.

SHE CARRIED ON THIS

COMMITMENT INTO

HER RETIREMENT.

I NEVER FORGET WHERE I

CAME FROM.

JACKIE BROUGHT THIS

NATIONAL

RECOGNITION AND OPPORTUNITY.

IT'S NOT WHAT SHE CHOSE TO

DO, BUT

THE GROWING LEGACY.

SHE RETURNED TO HER

HOMETOWN OF ST.

LOUIS PROVIDING TO YOUTH IN

THE

COMMUNITY KNOWN AS

AMERICA'S MOST

DANGEROUS CITY.

YOU DEAL WITH VIOLENCE,

YOU DEAL

WITH DRUGS, YOU DEAL WITH

PEOPLE

THAT MIGHT BE GOING IN THE

WRONG

DIRECTION.

BUT THERE IS A LOT OF LOVE

IN THIS

COMMUNITY.

YES, THERE IS SOME

NEGATIVITY, BUT

THE NEGATIVITY WOULD NOT

OUT SHINE

THE GOOD THAT PEOPLE ARE

TRYING TO

DO IN THIS COMMUNITY.

THE JACKIE JOINER-KERSEE

CENTER

OPENED IN 2000.

IT PROVIDES ACADEMIC

SUPPORT AND

SPORTS VENUES FOR YOUTH AND

FAMILIES.

WHAT'S MOST SATISFYING

TO YOU

ABOUT WORKING WITH YOUTH?

IT'S THE SMILES THAT YOU

SEE ON

THEIR FACES.

IT'S THE HUGS THAT YOU GET.

THE THANK YOUS, AND TO ME

I'M JUST

JACKIE FROM EAST ST. LOUIS.

WHEN I'M

IN THE COMMUNITY, I'M JUST

IN THE

COMMUNITY.

BUT TO THEM, YOU

ACCOMPLISHED THIS

AND THAT.

I THINK IT'S SO IMPORTANT

IF I'M

GOING TO INSPIRE.

I WANT YOUNG PEOPLE NOT TO

JUST SEE

ME ON TELEVISION, BUT I'M

FROM THEIR

COMMUNITY.

THAT IS ONE MESSAGE THAT I

WANT TO

CONVEY TO YOUNG PEOPLE THAT

THERE IS

NO GREATER GIFT THAN

SERVICING

OTHERS.

IF YOU CAN FIND IT IN YOUR

HEART TO

SERVICE WITH HUMILITY, THAT

IS THE

GREATEST GIFT.

THERE IS A CENTER THAT

BEARS HER

NAME CONNECTING ST. LOUIS

AND EAST

ST. LOUIS THAT IS THE HUB

FOR HOPE.

TO ME THIS IS TRULY A

BLESSING.

YES, IT'S A WAY IN AS WELL

AS A WAY

OUT.

THERE WAS SO MUCH OUT THERE.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

IT'S A JOURNEY.

AND YOU ARE ALWAYS JUST

TRYING TO

OPEN THE NEXT DOOR.

WHO HAS JESUS CHRIST

BEEN TO YOU?

JESUS CHRIST, YOU KNOW,

GOD,

THERE IS NO WAY I COULD

HAVE

ACCOMPLISHED ALL THE THINGS

THAT I

HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO DO.

BECAUSE I KNOW IT JUST

WASN'T ME.

AND STILL TODAY, HE LEADS

MY LIFE.

JACKIE JOINER-KERSEE,

OLYMPIC

GREAT SETTING THE BAR FOR

THE NEXT

GENERATION.

IF YOU LOVE JESUS

CHRIST, DON'T

BE AFRAID TO ACKNOWLEDGE IT

OR TO

ACKNOWLEDGE HIM.

DON'T BE AFRAID TO KNOW

THAT WE ARE

ALL GOING THROUGH THINGS.

BE UP LIFTING, BE

ENCOURAGING, BE

MOTIVATING.

LET THAT BE YOUR LIFE.

WHAT IS FINISHING THE

RACE LOOK

LIKE TO YOU?

I CAN'T SEE THE FINISH

LINE.

THERE IS STILL MORE WORK TO

BE DONE,

AND I WILL FINISH STRONG.

ONLY HE WILL TELL ME MY

TIME.

Pat: WHAT AN AMAZING

CHAMPION.

SHE COULD HAVE HAD ALL

KINDS OF

OFFERS IN HOLLYWOOD, BUT

SHE CHOSE

TO GO BACK TO EAST ST.

LOUIS, A

LITTLE RUN DOWN

NEIGHBORHOOD AND

GIVE HER LIFE THERE.

CONGRATULATIONS.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL TO

COME, WE ARE

GOING TO OPEN UP OUR IN BOX

AND

ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM YOU,

OUR

VIEWERS. NANCY ASKED, IS IT

OKAY TO

COMMUNICATE WITH THE DEAD.

WE HAVE ANOTHER ROUND OF

BRING IT ON.

SO DON'T GO AWAY. IN K- 12

TO SEE THIS WEEK'S TOP

ON DEMAND

VIDEOS, GO TO CBN.COM.

Terry: IN UKRAINE, A

YOUNG GIRL

NEARLY DIED FROM HORRIFIC

BURNS.

INSTEAD HER LIFE WAS SAVED

THANKS TO

CBN PARTNERS.

YULIYA WAS ABANDONED BY

HER

HUSBAND AND CARES FOR HER

TWO YOUNG

CHILDREN ON A SMALL

GOVERNMENT

ALLOWANCE.

WHEN HER WATER HEATER

BROKE, SHE HAD

NO MONEY TO FIX IT.

SHE HAD TO HEAT HER WATER

TO BATHE

HER CHILDREN.

THEN THERE WAS AN ACCIDENT.

SHE TURNED TO THE POT

AND LANDED

ON THE BOILING WATER.

SHE RUSHED HER CHILD TO

THE

HOSPITAL.

HER CHILD HAD LIFE

THREATENING

INJURIES AND NEEDED

SURGERY.

YULIYA KNEW SHE HAD NO

MONEY TO

PAY FOR THE EXPENSIVE CARE

HER CHILD

NEEDED. WHAT SHE DIDN'T

KNOW IS THAT

DAYS EARLIER CBN DELIVERED

HOSPITAL

SUPPLIES INCLUDING

TREATMENT FOR

BURNS.

BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP,

SHE WILL

BECOME A HEALTHY CHILD IN

3- 4 DAYS.

WHO WOULD FORGET SHE WAS

EVER BURNED.

SOPHIA MADE A REMARKABLE

RECOVERY

IN 2 WEEKS.

THE TOTAL COST FOR HER

HOSPITAL CARE

WAS PAID FOR BY CBN'S

"ORPHAN'S

PROMISE".

I'M REALLY HAPPY WITH

THE RESULT

AND THE WAY THE MEDICAL

TREATMENT

HELPED US SO QUICKLY. NOW

WE CAN

LEAD A FULL LIFE AGAIN.

TO SAFE GUARD YULIYA AND

HER

CHILDREN FROM FUTURE

ACCIDENTS, WE

INSTALLED A NEW WATER

HEATER IN HER

HOME.

THERE IS NO WAY TO THANK

YOU. YOU

CAME TO HELP US IN JUST THE

RIGHT

TIME. I COULDN'T IMAGINE

HOW WE

COULD HAVE DONE THIS ALL

WITHOUT YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Terry: A WONDERFUL

PRIVILEGE,

ISN'T IT TO BE ABLE TO STEP

IN THE

NEED OF SOMEONE'S LIFE.

HERE IS A MOTHER WHO MAKES

BARELY

ENOUGH TO GET BY.

WHEN THERE IS NO HOPE, NO

ANSWER,

AND YOU STEP IN.

CBN PARTNERS, WE WANT TO

SAY THANK

YOU.

YOU ARE DOING THAT IN THE

LIFE OF

CHILDREN LIKE SOPHIA AROUND

THE

WORLD THROUGH "ORPHAN'S

PROMISE",

THROUGH ALL KINDS OF

MEDICAL

PROCEDURES. YOU ARE

SUPPLYING

DRINKING WATER, EDUCATION,

HOUSING.

YOU ARE COMING IN THE MIDST

OF

DISASTER AREAS AND HOPE.

IT'S MEMBER: $20 A MONTH,

JUST $0.65

A DAY.

IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE IT YET,

GO TO

YOUR PHONE AND CALL

TOLL-FREE PHONE

NUMBER: 1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL

AND SAY, I WANT TO JOIN THE

"700

CLUB". ONE OF THE WAYS TO

SAY THANK

YOU IS TO SEND YOU "VICTORY

THROUGH

LIFE'S STORMS" PAT TALKS

ABOUT HIS

LIFE AND HIS VICTORY.

THERE HAVE BEEN STORMS AND

HE WANTS

TO SHARE WITH YOU HOW GOD

HAS

RESPONDED TO HIS NEEDS.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS.

IT WILL BE A HUGE BLESSING

TO YOU.

YOU CALL NOW AND WE'LL SEND

IT OUT

TO YOU.

Pat: LET'S GO.

LET'S ANSWER SOME E-MAILS.

Terry: THIS IS NANCY.

SHE SAYS SEVERAL YEARS AGO

I WAS

TOLD THAT I CAN COMMUNICATE

WITH

THOSE WHO HAVE DIED AS LONG

AS THE

LOVED ONE IS IN CONTACT.

1 DAY AFTER HIS DEATH SHE

HEARD

MUSIC COMING FROM HIS PIANO.

WHEN SHE WENT THERE, IT

WASN'T THERE.

IS THAT LEGITIMATE?

NO.

WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO

COMMUNICATE

WITH THE DEAD.

I THINK IT'S CONDEMNED IN

THE BIBLE.

THESE THINGS ARE KNOWN AS

FAMILIAR

SPIRITS.

ARE THEY DEMONS? YES. THE

DEMONS

TAKE ON THE ROLLS OF THE

DEPARTED

LOVED ONES.

ARE THEY THE SECRET TO

HELL, YES.

Terry: THIS ONE, SHE SAYS

SHE

KNOWS SOMEONE WHO BELIEVES

IN CHRIST

BELIEVES IN REINCARNATION.

HER FRIEND BELIEVES WHEN

YOU DIE,

GOD GIVES YOU A CHANCE TO

COMPLETE

YOUR MISSION. SHE SAYS, I

WANT TO

HAVE YOUR ADVICE.

Pat: I WANT TO QUOTE THE

BIBLE.

"IT IS APPOINTED UNTO MAN

ONCE TO

DIE AND TO JUDGMENT" THERE

IS NO DO

OVER.

THIS LIFE IS WHAT YOU'VE

GOT.

AND THOSE WHO USE IT WELL,

WILL FIND

THAT THE LORD WILL TAKE IT

ON TO

SOMETHING BETTER.

BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE A

CHANCE TO COME

BACK. THE WHOLE IDEA OF

PSYCHOSIS

AND REINCARNATION IS A

HINDU CONCEPT

THAT DEALS WITH THE WHEEL

OF FATE

THAT THEY BELIEVE THAT YOU

KEEP

COMING BACK IN VARIOUS

FORMS AND YOU

GET PURIFIED AND COME BACK

IN

ANOTHER FORM. THAT IS

TOTALLY

CONTRARY TO THE BIBLE.

TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION,

NO, IT IS

NOT OF GOD.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: THIS IS SUSIE WHO

SAYS I

HAVE HEALTH ISSUES. MY

HUSBAND

DOESN'T SHOW MUCH

COMPASSION FOR

WHAT I'M GOING THROUGH AND

I DON'T

KNOW WHAT TO DO.

IF I SAY SOMETHING ABOUT

HOW I FEEL,

HE TUNES ME OUT.

THIS HURTS ME DEEPLY.

I GET MY SUPPORT FROM MY

PARENTS AND

I USUALLY TURN TO THEM WHEN

I'M

HAVING A BAD DAY. WHAT

SHOULD I DO?

I'M THINKING ABOUT GOING TO

LIVE

WITH MY PARENTS.

Pat: IT'S TIME TO GROW

UP. YOU

WANT TO HAVE A PITY PARTY

AND CRY ON

YOUR HUSBAND'S SHOULDER.

HE'S NOT THAT KIND OF GUY.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS

REALIZE THAT

YOU ARE YOUR HOPE IN GOD.

NOT YOUR PARENTS, BUT GOD

HIMSELF.

TAKE IT TO THE LORD IN

PRAYER.

REMEMBER THE SONG? GAIN

STRENGTH

FROM HIM AND OVERCOME THOSE

PROBLEMS.

IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE

ENJOYING YOUR

SICKNESS. I KNOW THIS

SOUNDS HARD

AND CRUEL. YOU ARE LOOKING

AT IT AND

SAY I AM A SOLDIER IN

CHRIST AND HE

STRENGTHENS ME.

NOT MY PARENTS WHO WILL

STRENGTHEN

ME NOR MY HUSBAND.

I KNOW THAT'S HARSH. YOUR

HUSBAND

PROBABLY LOVES YOU MORE

THAN YOU

REALIZE BUT HE DOESN'T WANT

TO GO TO

INTO THE PITY PARTY.

WELL, AM I BEING TOO HARD?

NO YOU ARE NOT.

Pat: WITH TODAY'S POWER

MINUTE.

"COMMIT TO THE LORD

WHATEVER YOU DO,

AND HE WILL ESTABLISH YOUR

PLANS"

(PROVERB 16:3, NIV) WELL,

TOMORROW,

WE'VE GOT A LADY WHOSE WORK

GOT THE

EYES OF THE CELEBRITY AND

PRESIDENT.

FROM TERRY AND I, THIS IS

PAT

ROBERTSON.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

WE'LL SEE

YOU TOMORROW.

BYE, BYE.
