700 Club Interactive - August 24, 2016

Rejected by her family, Angela searched for acceptance but never found it in church and relationships. Then, on 9-11 as she poured over hours upon hours of horrific footage, she prayed to the only one she thought could help. Read Transcript


Andrew: A LITTLE

GIRL, REJECTED BY HER

FAMILY.

IF YOUR OWN PARENTS

DON'T SEEM TO LOVE YOU,

WHY WOULD YOU FEEL LOVABLE

BY ANYBODY ELSE?

Andrew: SHE GROWS

INTO A YOUNG WOMAN, ANGRY

WITH GOD.

I DIDN'T BELIEVE GOD

REALLY LOVED ME, AND I

JUST WALKED AWAY.

Andrew: FIND OUT HOW

SEPTEMBER 11TH CHANGED HER

MIND ABOUT GOD AND THE

CHURCH, ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

GOOD MORNING, AND WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

BY NOW YOU'VE HEARD OF THE

DEVASTATING ATTACK IN

TURKEY THIS PAST WEEKEND.

51 PEOPLE WERE KILLED

WHILE 70 OTHERS WERE

WOUNDED BY A SUICIDE

BOMBER AT A KURDISH

WEDDING CEREMONY, OF ALL

PLACES.

AND REPORTS SUGGEST THAT

THE BOMBER WAS SOMEWHERE

BETWEEN THE AGES OF 12 AND

14.

TURKEY'S PRESIDENT ERDOGAN

BLAMED ISIS FOR THE

ATTACK.

Terry: THIS FOOTAGE

COMES FROM KURDISTAN 24,

ON SUNDAY, ANOTHER CHILD

STRAPPED WITH EXPLOSIVES

TOOK TO THE STREETS.

THIS TIME, THANKFULLY,

POLICE WERE ABLE TO STOP

HIM.

THEY REMOVE THE VEST,

WHERE IT WAS LATER

DETONATED IN A CONTROLLED

AREA.

IF YOU THINK THE USE OF

CHILDREN IN SUICIDE

BOMBINGS IS UNUSUAL, THINK

AGAIN.

UNICEF REPORTS THAT

THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN HAVE

BEEN ABDUCTED IN IRAQ.

THE ABDUCTORS USE GIRLS,

AMONG MANY OTHER WAYS, IN

SEX TRADE, AND BOYS ARE

FORCED INTO TERRORIST

ACTIVITY, SUCH AS SUICIDE

BOMBINGS.

IN FACT, ONE IN FIVE

SUICIDE BOMBERS USED BY

BOKO HARAM ARE CHILDREN.

Andrew: WHEN YOU

THINK ISIS CAN'T STOOP TO

A LOWER LEVEL IN WHAT THEY

DO TO HUMANITY, THEY DO

SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

SOME ARE NAIVE TO THE FACT

THAT THESE YOUNG PEOPLE

ARE NOT SIGNING UP SAYING,

LET ME SIGN UP TO THIS

ACT.

THEY'RE LITERALLY

KIDNAPPED --

Terry: WHAT I HEARD

ON THE NEWS TODAY IS THE

BOY'S BROTHER BLEW HIMSELF

UP IN ANOTHER PART OF THE

CITY, AND THE FATHER IS

THE ONE THAT INITIATED ALL

OF THIS.

IT IS HARD TO COMPREHEND.

Andrew: A PETERSON

AIR FORCE COLONEL IS UNDER

FIRE.

THE PROBLEM, AN OPEN BIBLE

ON HIS DESK.

THEY QUESTION WHETHER THE

BIBLE VIOLATES THE

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND

STATE, OR IF IT IS A

REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION

OF THE MAJOR'S FAITH.

AIR FORCE SPOKESMAN

COLONEL DAVID FELDMAN IS

QUOTED AS SAYING, "PEOPLE

HAVE AN INHERENT RIGHT OF

FREE EXERCISE OF RELIGION

WITHIN BALANCE.

IT IS FINDING THAT RIGHT

BALANCE."

THE CHALLENGE OF THE

COMMANDER IS TO BE SURE

BOTH PEOPLE ARE TREATED

FAIRLY.

THE MILITARY COMES UNDER

CRITICISM FOR THINGS LIKE

THIS, BUT THEY'RE PUT IN A

TOUGH POSITION BEING

FUNDED BY TAXPAYER

DOLLARS.

AND SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE

DIFFERENT OPINIONS ON WHAT

THAT BALANCE SHOULD BE.

Terry: IT IS THE SAME

THING WITH SCHOOLS.

WHEN THEY'RE ACCUSED OF

SOMETHING LIKE THIS, THEY

HAVE THE FEAR OF FEDERAL

FUNDING BEING TAKEN AWAY

FROM THEM.

IT IS A QUANDARY FOR

PEOPLE.

BUT YOU WOULDN'T THINK

THIS DAY WOULD COME, WOULD

YOU?

Andrew: AND NOW IT IS

BECOMING THE NEW NORMAL.

SO IT IS NOW WE READ IT

AND SAY, OKAY, ANOTHER

STORY LIKE THIS.

BUT ULTIMATELY THESE

THINGS WILL ADD UP AND

CHANGE HOW WE PERCEIVE

THEM ALL.

Terry: AS ONE

SOLDIER'S BIBLE IS TAKEN

AWAY, A BIBLE BELONGING TO

A DECEASED WORLD WAR II

SOLDIER FINDS ITS WAY BACK

TO WHERE IT BELONGS,

THANKS TO A KENTUCKY

COUPLE.

JOHN WHYMER HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: YEARS HAVE

SMUDGED THE INK, FADED THE

WORDS, BUT THE MESSAGE IS

THERE IN HIS WRITING.

PLEASE RETURN TO MILTON

C. CUMMINGS, INDIANAPOLIS,

INDIANA.

Reporter: HE IS

ANOTHER MEMBER OF THE

GREATEST GENERATION NO

LONGER LIVING.

HIS BIBLE, THOUGH, IS NOW

BACK IN HIS FAMILY'S

HANDS.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

THIS IS WONDERFUL HISTORY,

AND I'M JUST BLESSED TO BE

ABLE TO BE ENJOYING IT.

PROTESTANT.

Reporter: MARK AND

DEANNA YOUNG GOT A LOT OF

CALLS AND DID A LOT OF

RESEARCH, TRYING TO TRACK

DOWN CUMMINGS' FAMILY.

A RELATIVE FROM LEXINGTON

JUST GOT THERE ON A LAST

MINUTE BUSINESS TRIP.

THAT SHOWS HOW AWESOME

GOD IS.

Reporter: THEY MET IN

NICHOLASVILLE, NOTHING

SHORT OF A MIRACLE, FOR

THIS FAMILY OF ONLY FOUR

DESCENDENTS STILL ALIVE.

GOD DOES SMALL THINGS

WE SHOULD CELEBRATE, AND

GOD DOES BIG THINGS WE

SHOULD CELEBRATE.

TO OUR FAMILY, THIS IS A

BIG THING.

Reporter: ITS BRAVE

OWNER IS NOW LAID TO REST,

BUT AFTER ALL OF THESE

YEARS, THIS BIBLE IS

FINALLY BACK HOME.

Terry: NOT ONLY DID

GOD MAKE A WAY FOR THE

BIBLE TO FIND ITS WAY BACK

TO THE FAMILY, BUT EVEN

ARRANGED FOR THE PICKUP.

THAT IS PRETTY

UNBELIEVABLE.

Andrew: IT REMINDS ME

THAT MY FAMILY ACQUIRED A

BIBLE THAT WAS IN THE

CIVIL WAR.

I NOTICED MY SON SHUTTING

SOMETHING IN A DRAWER,

TRYING TO SQUEEZE IT IN,

AND I WAS, LIKE, DON'T DO

THAT, IT'S A SPECIAL

BIBLE.

WE GOT IT IN ONE PIECE.

IT IS STILL IN ONE PIECE,

BUT IT HAS A FEW WRINKLES.

Terry: WELL, A GOOD

BIBLE DOES.

> THIS FAMILY BELIEVES

THEY LOST TRACK OF THE

BIBLE IN ESTATE SALE

SOMETIME AFTER THEIR UNCLE

DIED, BUT NOW IT IS BACK

IN THE RIGHT HANDS.

Andrew: THE MUSEUM OF

THE BIBLE OPENS NEXT YEAR

IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

THE FIRST EXHIBIT HAS

ARRIVED.

IT IS CALLED "THE SPIRIT

OF THE LIBERTYVILLE," A

FULL-SCALE REPLICA OF THE

ORIGINAL BELL.

IT STANDS SIX FEET TALL

AND WEIGHS OVER 3,000

POUNDS.

THE SIGNIFICANCE IS THERE:

IT IS IN GRAVEED JUST AS

THE ORIGINAL: "PROCLAIM

LIBERTY THROUGHOUT ALL OF

THE LAND, AND TO ALL OF

THE INHABITANTS THERE OF."

CARRIE SUMMERS, THE MUSEUM

OF THE BIBLE PRESIDENT

SAYS BY QUOTING LEVITICUS,

WE SEE THE BIBLE'S

INFLUENCE FORGED INTO THE

ENDURING IDEAS OF THE

FOUNDING OF FREEDOM,

EQUALITY, AND

INDEPENDENCE.

THERE IS A LOT OF

EXCITEMENT OVER THE

OPENING OF THIS MUSEUM.

Terry: YOU JUST PRAY

THAT THE ENDURANCE OF THE

IDEAS BEHIND IT WILL PROVE

TO BE TRUE, AND NOT JUST A

SYMBOL OF WHAT ONCE WAS.

Andrew: COMING UP,

HER LIFE WAS FULL OF

REJECTION AND HEARTACHE.

I WOULD WONDER WHY I

HAD TO BE BORN.

Andrew: FIND OUT HOW

ANGELA FOUND ACCEPTANCE

AND THE UNLIKELY DAY THAT

OPENED HER EYES.

DON'T GO AWAY.

Terry: MOST OF US

REMEMBER SEPTEMBER 11TH

AND HOW IT AFFECTED US AS

A NATION.

AND IT ALSO IMPACTED US

PERSONALLY, I'M SURE.

AS WE APPROACH 15 YEARS

SINCE THAT HORRIFIC DAY,

HERE IS A STORY OF HOW IT

CHANGED THE PERSPECTIVE OF

A YOUNG WOMAN.

ANGELA WANTED LOVE,

ACCEPTANCE, AND SECURITY.

INSTEAD, SHE WAS REJECTED

BY THE ONES WHO WERE

SUPPOSED TO LOVE HER 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 AUNTIE.

BUT MY MOTHER ALSO HAD

OTHER CHILDREN THAT SHE

KEPT.

AND 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 CARDS.

WHY DIDN'T MY PARENTS WANT

MENOTWANT ME.

MY GREAT AUNT THAT RAISED

ME WOULD TELL ME THINGS

THAT CHILDREN LIKE YOU,

WHO'S PARENTS AREN'T

MARRIED, THEY CALL THEM

BASTARDS.

IT MADE ME FEEL ASHAMED.

I MEAN IF YOUR OWN PARENTS

DON'T SEEM TO LOVE YOU,

WHY WOULD YOU FEEL LOVABLE

BY ANYBODY ELSE?

MY FATHER -- I MET HIM

LITERALLY ONLY ONE TIME IN

MY LIFE.

IT WASN'T LIKE YOU SEE IN

THE MOVIES, WHERE PEOPLE

FINALLY FIND THEIR PARENTS

AND RUSH INTO THEIR LONG,

LOST MOTHER OR FATHER'S

ARMS.

IT WASN'T LIKE THAT FOR

ME.

HE WAS A STRANGER TO ME.

I SO MUCH WANTED A

RELATIONSHIP WITH MY DAD.

BUT I JUST KNEW BETTER

THAN TO EXPECT ANYTHING.

I JUST COULDN'T.

I REMEMBER AS A LITTLE

GIRL SINGING, "JESUS LOVES

ME, THIS I KNOW," I WOULD

WONDER IF HE LOVED

EVERYBODY, WHY HE LET ME

BE BORN INTO THAT

SITUATION.

WHY SOMEONE WHO SUPPOSEDLY

LOVED ME ENOUGH TO DIE FOR

ME DIDN'T EVEN LOVE ME

ENOUGH TO GIVE ME A

FAMILY.

IT WAS A CHURCH THAT 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.

AND I JUST WALKED AWAY.

I JUST HOPED TO FIND

HAPPINESS.

I ACTUALLY WOUND UP

JOINING THE MILITARY, AND

GOT MARRIED YOUNG -- IT

ONLY LASTED A COUPLE OF

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 WANTED BY MY

PARENTS.

THAT WAS VERY

HEARTBREAKING AND SHAMEFUL

TO ME.

YOU'RE DEPENDING ON THEM

TO LOVE YOU.

I WANTED TO KNOW THAT I

WAS WANTED, AND IT NEVER

HAPPENED.

IT WAS A TUESDAY,

SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2001.

I REMEMBER IT BEING A

BEAUTIFUL DAY.

I WAS WORKING FOR THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

I REMEMBER PASSING BY A TV

MONITOR, AND PEOPLE WERE

STANDING AROUND IT,

STARING AT IT, AND I

STOPPED AND LOOKED AT IT.

THERE WAS ALL THIS CHAOS

IN NEW YORK.

ONE OF THE TWIN TOWERS

BEING ON FIRE, THERE WAS

THE ANNOUNCEMENT OVER THE

P.A. SYSTEM, AND SOMETHING

WAS HAPPENING IN

WASHINGTON, D.C., THE

PENTAGON HAD BEEN HIT.

YOU COULD SEE THE SMOKE

FROM THE PENTAGON.

EVERYBODY WAS FREAKING

OUT.

PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

THEY DON'T KNOW WHY IT IS

HAPPENING.

THE FEAR IN THE AIR -- I

HAVE NEVER FELT FEAR LIKE

THAT IN MY LIFE.

I DROVE HOME, PARKED MY

CAR, RAN TO THE HOUSE, 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.

AND I WAS SITTING THERE,

STUNNED.

AT THAT MOMENT, I WANTED

GOD TO EXIST SO MUCH.

GOD, PLEASE BE THERE.

I HOPE YOU'RE 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'VE GOT TO GET BACK TO

CHURCH.

YOU'VE GOT 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 THAT I HAD NEVER

EXPERIENCED HIM BEFORE.

I FINALLY WAS TOLD, READ

YOUR BIBLE.

READ IT EVERY DAY.

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.

AND JUST THAT PHRASE

MELTED ME.

HE BECAME MORE OF A

PERSON, A PERSON WITH MY

EMOTIONS AND MY FEELINGS,

SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS

ME.

I WANTED GOD.

I WANTED HIM TOTALLY.

SPIRITUALLY, EMOTIONALLY,

MENTALLY, I WAS READY.

I SAID, I WANT YOU TO LOVE

ME WITH AN EVERLASTING

LOVE.

*

FINALLY I HAD A FATHER,

AND THE 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'VE ALWAYS BEEN YOUR

FATHER.

YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH WHAT

YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH TO

GET TO THE PLACE WHERE YOU

ARE NOW, BUT I WAS ALWAYS

YOUR FATHER.

AND 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 THE

ARMS OF JESUS.

I WAS WELCOMED INTO THE

ARMS OF MY FATHER.

HE IS MY HOME.

I AM LOVABLE.

Terry: BOY, SOMETIMES

WHEN LIFE'S CIRCUMSTANCES

TRY TO BLOT OUT THE TRUTH

OF WHAT ANGELA WAS JUST

SHARING, IT IS HARD.

IT IS HARD TO FEEL VALUED.

IT IS HARD TO FEEL LOVED.

IT IS HARD TO RECEIVE

GOD'S LOVE, EVEN THOUGH

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS IS

TRUE.

HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE.

THAT LOVE HAS ALWAYS BEEN

THERE.

HE HAD YOU IN MIND BEFORE

THE BEGINNING OF TIME AS

WE KNOW IT.

HE SAYS, I SAW YOU BEFORE

YOU WERE FORMED IN YOUR

MOTHER'S WOMB.

HE HAD EVERY DAY OF YOUR

LIFE PLANNED AND PURPOSED

FOR YOU.

IT IS INTERESTING TO ME

THAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES IN

ANGELA'S LIFE DIDN'T

CHANGE.

WHAT CHANGED WAS SHE

FINALLY FOUND OUT WHO GOD

WAS, HOW MUCH HE LOVED

HER, AND SAW HERSELF

THROUGH THE LENS OF HIS

LOVE.

AND MAYBE TODAY THAT NEEDS

TO HAPPEN FOR YOU, TOO.

YOU KNOW, WE GET A LOT OF

MAIL HERE FROM PEOPLE WHO

SAY, I DON'T FEEL THE LOVE

OF GOD.

OR, I'M AFRAID GOD WON'T

ACCEPT ME.

I'VE DONE THIS OR I'VE

DONE THAT.

LISTEN, TRUTH IS NOT BASED

ON FEELINGS.

TRUTH IS BASED ON FACT.

AND FACT IS GOD'S WORD

SAYS HE LOVES YOU WITH AN

EVERLASTING LOVE.

AND IT ALSO SAYS HE WILL

NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR

FORSAKE YOU, NOT EVER.

IT SAYS THAT NOTHING CAN

SEPARATE YOU FROM HIS

LOVE, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

YOU KNOW THE THING KEEPS

YOU FROM RECEIVING HIS

LOVE IS YOU.

IT'S THAT THING IN US THAT

SAYS I'M AFRAID TO TRUST,

OR THAT BUYS THE LIE OF

THE ENEMY.

I'M UNWORTHY.

GOD COULDN'T POSSIBLY LOVE

ME.

YOU KNOW WHAT HIS WORD

SAYS?

THAT HE DANCES OVER US,

DANCES OVER US WITH

DELIGHT.

GOD LOVES YOU BEYOND WHAT

YOU COULD POSSIBLY

IMAGINE.

AND IT'S NOT BECAUSE YOU

OR I HAVE DONE ANYTHING

SPECTACULAR TO MERIT OR TO

EARN THAT LOVE.

IT'S BECAUSE WE WERE HIS

IDEA.

CREATED BY HIM TO HAVE

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

CREATED ACTUALLY, THE THE

WORD OF GOD SAYS, IN HIS

IMAGE AND LIGHTNESS.

RECEIVE THAT MESSAGE

TODAY.

RECEIVE THAT MESSAGE INTO

YOUR LIFE AND YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCES.

AND JUST SAY, YES, GOD.

YES, GOD.

OTHER END OF THE LINE WHO

WOULD LOVE TO PRAY WITH

YOU TODAY.

ANDREW?

Andrew: COMING UP, A

YOUNG GIRL IS NEAR DEATH

AND DOESN'T EVEN KNOW IT.

BUT FIND OUT HOW YOUR

SUPPORT SAVED HER LIFE AND

HOW SHE IS NOW SAVING

LIVES IN HER VILLAGE BY

LEADING THEM TO JESUS.

Andrew: MANY PEOPLE

IN NEPAL HAVE NEVER SEEN A

DOCTOR.

THE TOUGH LANDSCAPE AND

LACK OF FINANCIAL

RESOURCES KEEP THE NEPALI

PEOPLE FROM BASIC NEEDS.

BUT THANKS TO PARTNERS

LIKE YOU, CBN WAS THERE

AND PROVIDED A

LIFE-CHANGING SURGERY FOR

13-YEAR-OLD KRISHNA.

TAKE A LOOK.

Terry: HIGH IN THE

MOUNTAINS OF NORTHWEST

NEPAL IS A LAND THAT TIME

HAS FORGOTTEN.

MOST PEOPLE IN THE HUMLA

DISTRICT HAVE NO RUNNING

WATER, ELECTRICITY, OR

DOCTORS.

IT WAS ESPECIALLY HARD FOR

13-YEAR-OLD KRISHNA.

SHE SUFFERED EVERY DAY,

NOT KNOWING SHE HAD HEART

PROBLEMS.

I DIDN'T WALK OR FETCH

WATER.

I FEEL WEAK.

IT IS DIFFICULT TO WORK.

I CANNOT DIG IN THE FIELD.

Terry: LIKE MOST

PEOPLE IN THEIR VILLAGE,

KRISHNA AND HER FAMILY

WERE HINDU.

THEN THEY LEARNED ABOUT

JESUS CHRIST BY READING A

GOSPEL TRACT.

MY FATHER BECAME A

BELIEVER AND SAID I WOULD

SURVIVE.

LATER I ALSO BECAME A

BELIEVER.

Terry: THEIR FAITH IN

JESUS INFURIATED THEIR

NEIGHBORS.

THE NEIGHBORS ASKED US,

WHAT WILL YOU GET BY

BELIEVING?

AND THEN THEY TOLD US TO

LEAVE THE VILLAGE.

Terry: BUT KRISHNA'S

FAMILY STOOD THEIR GROUND.

WE ASKED GOD FOR HELP.

WE SAID, LORD, WE PRAY

THAT THEY WOULD ALSO

BELIEVE IN YOU.

Terry: KRISHNA'S

CONDITION GOT WORSE.

A DOCTOR IN A NEARBY

VILLAGE SAID SHE NEEDED

OPEN-HEART SURGERY.

I PRAYED, FATHER GOD,

PLEASE HELP ME.

PLEASE PROVIDE FOR ME.

SAVE MY LIFE.

Terry: THEN THEIR

PASTOR HEARD ABOUT CBN AND

CALLED US.

WE CAME TO KRISHNA'S HOME

AND TOLD HER CBN WOULD PAY

FOR HER SURGERY AT A

HOSPITAL IN KATHMANDU.

BUT THAT MEANT KRISHNA

WOULD HAVE TO LEAVE HER

HOME AND FAMILY BEHIND.

WHEN KRISHNA AND THE CBN

TEAM ARRIVED AT THE

HOSPITAL, DOCTORS TOLD HER

SHE MADE IT JUST IN TIME.

THE SURGERY WAS A SUCCESS.

KRISHNA WAS TOLD SHE WOULD

HAVE TO LIVE IN KATHMANDU

FOR ONGOING MEDICAL

TREATMENTS AND BETTER

LIVING CONDITIONS.

SO A CHRISTIAN FAMILY

THERE WELCOMED HER AS PART

OF THEIR FAMILY.

SIX MONTHS LATER, KRISHNA

WENT HOME FOR A VISIT.

SHE HAS COLOR -- HER

FACE HAS COLOR, AND SHE

LOOKS HEALTHY.

Terry: KRISHNA AND

HER FAMILY GAVE ALL OF THE

GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST.

GOD IS GREAT AND HIGH

ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE.

Terry: AND SOME OF

THOSE WHO PERSECUTED THEM

NOW GATHER AT THEIR HOME

TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP THE

ONE TRUE GOD.

ALL OF YOU PRAYED FOR

ME, AND THE MONEY FOR MY

OPERATION WAS RAISED.

I WANT TO THANK ALL OF THE

PEOPLE OF GOD.

Andrew: THANK YOU.

THANTHANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HELPING US LITERALLY GO TO

THE ENDS OF THE EARTH, TO

THAT BEAUTIFUL NATION, TO

GIVE LIFE-CHANGING

SURGERY, AND THE GOSPEL OF

JESUS CHRIST IS SPREADING

IN THAT VILLAGE, THANKS TO

YOU.

Terry: UNBELIEVABLE.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO SEE

TRUTH REALLY JUST ON

PEOPLE.

Andrew: IT IS

BEAUTIFUL.

AND WE GET TO PRAY FOR

PEOPLE.

Terry: YES.

AND WE'VE GOT SOME PRAYER

REQUESTS THAT HAVE COME

IN.

MARIA SAYS, "PLEASE PRAY

FORTUNATFOR MY MOM TO RETURN TO

THE LORD.

SHE WAS ONCE VERY CLOSE TO

THE LORD, BUT THE

HARDSHIPS OF LIFE TURNED

HER AWAY.

PLEASE PRAY GOD WILL HEAL

HER HEART."

Andrew: "PLEASE PRAY

FOR A DEAR FRIEND NAMED

DEE DEE, WHO IS DEALING

WITH DEPRESSION.

HER SON DIED IN A CAR

CRASH A FEW YEARS AGO, AND

HER HUSBAND RECENTLY LEFT

HER.

I TALK TO HER ABOUT JESUS,

BUT I DON'T KNOW IF SHE IS

SAVED."

Terry: BEVERLY IS

SAYING, I A, "I AM PRAYING FOR

MY HUSBAND, NEIL, TO

RETURN BACK TO CHRIST."

LET'S ALL PRAY TOGETHER TO

LIFT THESE NEEDS UP TO THE

LORD.

FATHER, I WANT TO PRAY FOR

MARIA, WHO IS ASKING

PRAYER FOR HER MOM.

I ASK GOD THAT THE VERY

THINGS THAT HAVE STOLEN

THE SEED OF TRUTH FROM HER

HEART WOULD NOW BE

REPLACED BY A FRESH WAVE

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN HER

HEART AND MIND.

HOLY SPIRIT, GO TO

FLORINDA AND SPEAK INTO

THOSE PLACES OF EMPTINESS

AND NEED.

AND FOR BEVERLY, WHO IS

PRAYING FOR HER HUSBAND

NEIL TO TURN BACK, JESUS,

YOU ARE THE ONE WHO SAVES.

WE PRAY AND LOOK TO YOU

AND HOLY SPIRIT TOUCH

NEAL'S HEART WITH TRUTH

AND GUIDE HIM BACK TO YOU.

Andrew: FATHER GOD,

TERRY AND I LIFT UP DEE

DEE, TOO.

WE THINK OF THE SAD

CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE HER

CHILD HAS DIED IN A CAR

CRASH AND HER HUSBAND HAS

LEFT HER.

WE CAN'T IMAGINE THE PAIN

THAT THE CHILD'S DEATH HAD

ON THIS MARRIAGE, BUT NOW

THAT THE MARRIAGE HAS

CRUMBLED, WE ASK YOUR LOVE

TO BE POURED UPON DEE DEE

AND HER HUSBAND, LORD GOD.

WE PRAY, LORD GOD, YOU

WOULD HOLD THESE TWO

PRECIOUS LIVES IN YOUR

HAND.

AND FOR DEE DEE, WHO IS IN

SUCH NEED OF YOUR COMFORT

AND LOVE, WE PRAY YOUR

HOLY SPIRIT WILL TOUCH

YOUR LIFE WITH HOPE AND

JOY.

IF SHE NEEDS A REASON TO

LIVE, AND PEOPLE ARE

WATCHING AND SAYING, I

NEED A REASON TO LIVE, WE

KNOW, LORD GOD, A REASON

TO LIVE IS THE FACT THAT

JESUS CHRIST HAS MADE A

RELATIONSHIP POSSIBLE WITH

OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.

THAT IS A REASON TO

CELEBRATE.

AND WE CAN CELEBRATE

SPENDING ETERNITY IN

HEAVEN.

AND, LORD GOD, FOR THOSE

OF US NOW WHO NEED HOPE IN

OUR LIVES, WE PRAY YOUR

HOLY SPIRIT WILL DO WHAT

HE HAS PROMISED AND TOUCH

US WITH HOPE AND COMFORT

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

> WE LEAVE YOU TODAY

WITH ROMANS 5: 8: "BUT GOD

DEMONSTRATES HIS OWN LOVE

FOR US IN THIS: WHILE WE

WERE STILL SINNERS, CHRIST

DIED FOR US."

A GREAT WORD.

FOR TERRY MEEUWSEN, I'M

ANDREW KNOX, WE'LL SEE YOU

NEXT TIME.
