One hit and she was hooked. Confessions of a meth addict and her journey to freedom. Plus, his business failed and he thought his life did as well. Hear how he recovered in a way he never expected. Read Transcript


Wendy: AMERICA'S

GROWING HABIT...

HE DIED OF A HEROIN

OVER DOSE.

Wendy: AND IT IS

HOOKING OUR MOST INNOCENT.

THE FUTURE LOOKS VERY

BLEAK FOR OUR CHILDREN AND

THEIR CHILDREN.

Wendy: AND THEN

CONFESSIONS OF A METH

ADDICT.

AND I REMEMBER

THINKING, I FINALLY FOUND

THE THING I'VE BEEN

LOOKING FOR.

Wendy: ONE HIT AND

SHE WAS HOOKED, AND THERE

WAS ONLY ONE WAY OUT.

I WAS, LIKE, WHAT AM I

GOING TO DO?

WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, FOLKS, THE

BIG NEWS ABOUT THE DEBUT,

100 MILLION PEOPLE

SUPPOSEDLY WATCHED HILLARY

CLINTON AND DONALD TRUMP

SQUARE OFF.

ONE OF THE NASTIEST

THINGS, BACK AND FORTH.

I'LL TELL YOU, I RUN A

UNIVERSITY, AND I THINK I

WOULD HAVE FLUNKED THEM.

I WOULD HAVE GIVEN THEM A

"D" MINUS ON CONTENT.

THEY TALK ABOUT A BIG

DEBATE, WELL, I'M NOT

SURE.

WE'LL TALK TO DAVID BRODY

ABOUT IT LATER ON THIS

PROGRAM.

Terry: WELL, THEY

BOTH CAME OUT FLINGING AT

THIS BIG DEBUT.

IT IS UNSURPRISINGLY THAT

THE DEBATE WAS PRETTY

ROUGH.

CLINTON SAYING THAT TRUMP

ISN'T QUALIFIED TO BE

PRESIDENT, AND TRUMP

CALLING CLINTON A TYPICAL

POLITICIAN WHO HASN'T

GOTTEN THINGS DONE IN 30

YEARS.

AND NOT A LOT OF CONTENT

BEYOND THAT.

DAVID BRODY AND JENNA

BROWDER HAVE OUR TEAM

COVERAGE FROM HOFSTRA

UNIVERSITY IN NEW YORK.

David: THE DEBATE

FOR THE AGES TURNED INTO

ONE FULL OF ARGUING.

TRUMP PLAYED AGGRESSOR

FROM THE START AND

PORTRAYED CLINTON A

LONG-TERM FAILED

POLITICIAN.

YOU'VE BEEN DOING THIS

FOR 30 YEARS.

WHY ARE YOU JUST THINKING

ABOUT THESE SOLUTIONS

RIGHT NOW?

I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT

THIS QUITE FOR QUITE A LONG

TIME.

FOR A LON 30 YEARS.

> YOU CALLED IT THE GOLD

STANDARD OF TRADE DEALS.

YOU CALLED IT THE FINEST

DEAL THEN YOU HEARD WHAT I

SAID ABOUT IT, AND ALL OF

A SUDDEN YOU CHANGED YOUR

OPINION.

I KNOW YOU LIVE IN YOUR

OWN WORLD, DONALD, AND I

FEEL LIKE AT THE END OF

THIS, I'LL BE BLAMED FOR

EVERYTHING THAT HAS EVER

HAPPENED.

WHY NOT?

YEAH, WHY NOT.

JOIN THE DEBATE BY SAYING

CRAZY THINGS.

David: THE

HOSTILITIES HAVE BEEN

BUILDING BETWEEN THESE TWO

FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS.

AND CLINTON CONTINUED

QUESTIONING WHY TRUMP

WON'T RELEASE HIS TAX

RETURNS.

MAYBE HE DOESN'T WANT

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, ALL

OF YOU WATCHING, TO KNOW

HE PAID NOTHING IN TAXES.

I WILL RELEASE MY TAX

RETURNS, AGAINST MY

LAWYERS' WISHES, AS SOON

AS SHE RELEASES HER 33,000

E-MAILS THAT SHE HAS

DELETED.

David: AS THE DEBATE

MOVED ON, TRUMP HAD TO

PLAY DEFENSE ON A NUMBER

OF TOPICS, LIKE THE

BIRTHER ISSUE.

HE HAS REALLY STARTED

HIS POLITICAL ACTIVITY

BASED ON THIS RACIST LIE.

David: LATER IT GOT

EVEN MORE PERSONAL AS

TRUMP REPEATED ONE OF HIS

MOST PROVOCATIVE COMMENTS.

SHE DOESN'T HAVE THE

LOOKS.

SHE DOESN'T HAVE THE

STAMINA.

I SAID, SHE DOESN'T HAVE

THE STAMINA.

AND I DON'T BELIEVE SHE

DOES HAVE THE STAMINA TO

BE PRESIDENT OF THIS

COUNTRY.

David: THAT LED

CLINTON TO POINT OUT

TRUMP'S PAST STATEMENTS

AGAINST CLINTON.

BUT THIS IS A MAN WHO

HAS CALLED WOMEN PIGS,

SLOBS, AND DOGS.

David: THERE IS

ALWAYS SO MUCH TO SIFT

THROUGH AFTER A HUGE

DEBATE LIKE THIS, AND IT

ALL STARTS IN THE SPIN

ROOM, WHERE WE FIND MY

COLLEAGUE, JENNA BROWDER.

Reporter: AFTER A

DEBATE LIKE THIS ONE,

EVERYONE HAS AN OPINION.

I THOUGHT IT WAS A

GREAT NIGHT FOR DONALD

TRUMP.

HE STOOD TOE TO TOE WITH

SECRETARY CLINTON.

I THINK HE TOED THE LINE.

HE SHOWED THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE HE IS ABLE TO BE

PRESIDENT.

I THINK TONIGHT

SECRETARY CLINTON CAME

PREPARED, WITH SOLUTIONS I

THINK WILL ENABLE ALL

AMERICANS TO BELIEVE SHE

IS PREPARED TO LEAD US IN

THE 21st CENTURIES.

Reporter: TWO SIDES,

TWO STORIES.

THE CLINTON CAMP PUSHING

THE NARRATIVE THAT DONALD

TRUMP CAME UNHINGED.

I DON'T THINK HE

PRESENTED A COHERENT

VISION FOR WHERE HE WANTS

TO TAKE THE COUNTRY.

I THINK HE GOT DRAGGED

DOWN INTO DEFENDING

HIMSELF.

I THINK HE IS SO

NARCISSISTIC, THAT FOR

HIM, WHEN HE IS CHALLENGED

ON A MISSTATEMENT OR A

WRONG POSITION HE HAS

TAKEN IN THE PAST, HE

DWELLS ON TRYING TO

CONVINCE PEOPLE OF HIS ALL

KNOWINGNESS.

Reporter: TRUMP'S

SURROGATES, MEANTIME, SAY

THE BUSINESSMAN HELD HIS

OWN.

THERE WAS A CLEAR

MATCHUP ON THE ECONOMY AND

A CLEAR MATCHUP ON TRADE.

AND I THINK MR. TRUMP

SPOKE FORTHRIGHTLY WITH

PEOPLE AND SPOKE WITH

CLARITY AND CONVICTION.

Reporter: THE NEXT

DEBATE IS LESS THAN TWO

WEEKS FROM NOW IN ST.

LOUIS, AND TO GIVE YOU AN

IDEA OF HOW IMPORTANT

THESE DEBATES ARE, THEY

WILL HELP ROUGHLY HALF OF

ALL VOTERS MAKE UP THEIR

MINDS.

IN NEW YORK, JENNA

BROWDER, CBN NEWS.

Pat: DAVID BRODY IS

WITH US NOW FROM NEW YORK.

DAVID, WHAT WAS TRUMP'S

CAMPAIGN PLAN GOING INTO

THIS THING?

David: WELL, THEY

WANTED TO DO A COUPLE OF

THINGS.

I THINK THEY DEFINITELY

WANTED TO GET ON CLINTON

AND REALLY BE AGGRESSIVE,

AND WE SAW THAT AT THE

START.

BUT THE PROBLEM HERE FOR

DONALD TRUMP IS THAT HE

WAS GREAT IN QUOTES, IF

YOU WILL, FOR 20 MINUTES

OF THE DEBATE.

THE PROBLEM IS THE DEBATE

LASTED 90 MINUTES.

FOR THE FIRST 20 MINUTES

HE WAS AGGRESSIVELY

PROSECUTING HILLARY

CLINTON, AND BRINGING UP

THINGS THAT A LOT OF THE

17 OTHER G.O.P. CANDIDATES

HE DEFEATED PROBABLY

WOULDN'T HAVE DONE IT IN

QUITE THAT MANNER.

AND HE TENDED TO LOSE

FOCUS LATER ON.

AND IT BECAME MORE ABOUT

THE "I" WORD, AND HE WAS

VERY MUCH PUT ON THE

DEFENSIVE, AND HE DIDN'T

TALK ABOUT THE "WE THE

PEOPLE," AND BRING IT BACK

TO THE "MAKE AMERICA GREAT

AGAIN."

IF YOU LISTEN TO THE TIMES

HE SAID, "MAKE AMERICA

GREAT AGAIN," IT WAS ONE

TIME, AT THE END, ABOUT 90

MINUTES IN.

IT WAS NOT GOOD FOR DONALD

TRUMP.

Pat: APPARENTLY HE

DIDN'T DO ANY DEBATE PREP

OR MINIMAL DEBATE PREP.

YOU HAVE TO REHEARSE SOME

OF THE LINES.

YOU HAVE TO KNOW THE

ATTACK IS COMING AT YOU

AND BE PREPARED.

HE SPENT ABOUT EIGHT

MINUTES ON THAT BIRTHER

NONSENSE.

David: YEAH, IT HURT

HIM.

I KNOW THERE IS CRITICISM

DIRECTED AT LESTER HOT,

THE MODERATOR, BUT THEN HE

RAMBLED.

HE RAMBLED ON AND ON ABOUT

THE BIRTHER ISSUE, AND IT

GAVE HILLARY CLINTON A

CHANCE TO SAY THAT WHOLE

THING WAS JUST SUCH A

RACIST LIE.

AND THAT WAS A BAD MOMENT

FOR DONALD TRUMP.

BUT IF YOU GO DOWN THE

LIST, WHERE WAS BENGHAZI?

WHY DIDN'T HE BRING THAT

UP.

THE CLINTON E-MAILS CAME

UP BRIEFLY, BUT HE DIDN'T

REALLY GO THERE TOO MUCH.

WHAT ABOUT THE BASKET OF

DEPLORABLES.

WE NEVER HEARD THAT AT

ALL.

SOME REAL MISSED

OPPORTUNITIES FOR DONALD

TRUMP.

HE BETTER SHORE THAT UP

NEXT TIME.

HE'S ONLY GOT TWO LEFT.

Pat: DID THIS THING

HAVE A SO CALL FOCUS?

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT

IT IS THEY WERE AIMING FOR

ON THIS ONE.

David: WILL WAS SIX

15-MINUTE TIME FRAMES, BUT

IN ESSENCE IT WAS THE

ECONOMY AND FOREIGN

POLICY.

AND THEN SECURITY MOVING

FORWARD.

BUT IT FELT VERY

HAPHAZARD.

THE NEXT ONE, COMING UP IN

ST. LOUIS, WILL BE A

TOWNHALL.

THAT TYPICALLY -- WE'RE

NOT QUITE SURE EXACTLY WHO

THAT WILL BENEFIT.

HILLARY CLINTON ISN'T

NECESSARILY ALL THAT GREAT

IN A TOWNHALL BECAUSE SHE

IS NOT AS PERSONALABLE

CANDIDATE.

SO IT WILL BE INTERESTING

TO SEE WHAT DONALD TRUMP

WILL DO.

HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE

ON HIS "A" GAME.

THERE IS NO DOUBT HE WAS

NOT.

HILLARY CLINTON, SHE WAS

OKAY.

SHE SMILED A LOT.

SHE WAS LIKE THE CHESHIRE

CAT ALL NIGHT LONG.

DID YOU NOTICE THE

GRANDMOTHER REFERENCE IN

THE FIRST TWO MINUTES.

THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN

WANTED TO PROJECT HER AS

SOMEONE WHO WAS NOT GOING

TO GET ANGRY OR

FRUSTRATED, BUT WAS GOING

TO LITIGATE THE CASE

AGAINST DONALD TRUMP.

Pat: SHE WAS AMAZING

BECAUSE SHE HAD REHEARSED.

WHAT ARE THE TRUMP PEOPLE

TELLING YOU?

HAVE YOU HAD A CHANCE TO

TALK TO ANY OF THEM ABOUT

THE STRATEGY FOR THE NEXT

ONE GOING FORWARD?

David: I HAVE TO

TELL YOU PRIVATELY -- AND

I TALKED TO A FEW FOLKS

OFF THE RECORD

PRIVATELY -- THEY WERE

SHAKING THEIR HEADS.

THEY REALIZED THAT HE GOT

UNFOCUSED TOWARDS THE

LATTER HALF OF THE DEBATE.

THEY REALIZED THEY HAVE

SOME WORK TO DO.

THEY TRIED TO PUT A

POSITIVE SPIN FORWARD.

BUT GOING FORWARD, I THINK

THEY RELIEVED THEY HAVE TO

HIT THE E-MAILS AND

BENGHAZI AND THE BASKET OF

DEPLORABLES.

WHAT HE DID DO WELL, AND I

KNOW THEY FELT THIS WAS

EFFECTIVE AT THE BEGINNING

OF THE DEBATE, HE TALKED

ABOUT HOW HILLARY CLINTON

HAS BEEN AROUND FOR 30

YEARS, AND NOTHING HAS

HAPPENED.

SHE IS A TYPICAL

POLITICIAN.

THEY BELIEVE THAT WORKED

WELL.

IT WAS PROBABLY HIS BEST

PART OF THE DEBATE.

THEY'LL DO THAT MORE.

THEY WILL MAKE SURE TRUMP

DEFINITELY HAMMERS THAT

THEME A LOT MORE COMING

UP.

Pat: DAVID, THE

ADMINISTRATION RIGHT NOW,

OBAMA, HAS PUT IN EFFECT,

WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL

APPROVAL, A BASKET OF

REGULATIONS THAT ARE

STIFLING TO AMERICAN

INDUSTRY, AND WILL COST

PROBABLY A HALF A

TRILLION, OR A TRILLION

DOLLARS, OR MAYBE EVEN

MORE.

TRUMP DIDN'T MENTION THOSE

THINGS.

HE COULD HAVE BROUGHT IT

OUT IN CLEAR DETAIL, BUT

HE DIDN'T DO IT.

AND HILLARY IS GOING TO

BACK UP ALL OF THOSE

THINGS, NOT TO MENTION

OBAMACARE, WHICH IS A

DISASTER.

David: HE DIDN'T DO

ANY OF IT, PAT, YOU'RE

ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

HE HAS TOLD ME IN PRIVATE

CONVERSATIONS, AS IT

RELATES TO THE E.P.A. AND

OTHER THINGS, HE SAID, I'M

NOT GOING TO BE AN

EXECUTIVE ORDER PRESIDENT,

LIKE THIS PRESIDENT.

YES, HE'S GOING TO ROLL

BACK SOME OF PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE ORDERS.

BUT HE DOESN'T PLAN TO BE

THE GUY WHO TAKES OUT A

PEN AND STARTS WRITING

EXECUTIVE ORDERS LEFT AND

RIGHT.

HE NEEDED TO POINT THAT

OUT.

BECAUSE THEY HEAR LAW AND

ORDER.

AND THEY THINK, IS THIS

GUY GOING TO BE OUT OF

CONTROL WITH THE PEN AND

EXECUTIVE ORDERS.

HE TOLD ME HE WILL NOT BE

ONE OF THOSE TYPE OF

PRESIDENTS.

HE DID NOT POINT THAT OUT

AT ALL.

Pat: DAVID, I

COULDN'T SLEEP LAST NIGHT.

I WAS UP AT 3:00 IN THE

MORNING.

David: YOU AND ME,

PAT.

I AGREE.

Pat: ANYHOW, THERE IS

NO JURY IN MUDVILLE IF THE

MIGHTY CASEY HAS STRUCK

OUT.

WE'LL SEE IF THE MIGHTY

CASEY CAN COME BACK.

David: THE GOOD NEWS

FOR TRUMP IS THIS -- WE'VE

HEARD ABOUT THE SHOW

"EIGHT IS ENOUGH" -- MAYBE

20 MINUTES IS A WELL FOR

DONALD TRUMP.

A LOT OF PEOPLE TUNE OUT

AFTER 20 MINUTES.

MAYBE THAT 20 MINUTES OR

SO WILL BE ENOUGH TO TURN

OUT NOT JUST HIS BASE, BUT

SOME OF THE FRUSTRATED

INDEPENDENT VOTERS.

THIS IS TRADITIONAL FROM A

DEBUT STANDARD

PERFORMANCE, HILLARY

CLINTON WON FROM

TRADITIONAL STANDARDS.

THIS IS NOT A TRADITIONAL

ELECTION, SO WHO KNOWS.

I NEED TO GET SOME SLEEP,

TOO.

Pat: WE CAN MAYBE

REST UP FOR THE NEXT TIME.

DAVID, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

AND YOU CAN ALSO GET

DAVID'S LATEST POLITICAL

REPORTS AND INSIGHTS ON

"THE BRODY FILE" AT

cbnnews.com.

TERRY, IT IS SAD.

Terry: I THINK WHAT

DAVID SAID AT THE END IS

TRUE, THIS IS NOT A

TYPICAL ELECTION.

PEOPLE ARE NOT VOTING FOR

DONALD TRUMP BECAUSE HE IS

A GENIUS IN THE DEBATE

WORLD.

THEY WANT CHANGE AND

THEY'RE FED UP WITH THE

STATUS QUO, AND THAT

DIDN'T CHANGE AFTER LAST

NIGHT.

Pat: LANCE PREVIS IS

SAYING HE WON, BUT PEOPLE

DON'T KNOW WHO WON OR

DIDN'T WIN.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

YOU'LL HAVE TO SEE.

BUT I DO THINK -- I HOPE

MY DEAR FRIEND DONALD WILL

LISTEN TO THIS, PLEASE

TAKE OFF FROM THE ROAD FOR

TWO OR THREE DAYS AND DO

DEBATE PREP AND GET THOSE

LINES IN YOUR MIND AND GET

SET.

YOU'VE GOT TO DO IT.

IF YOU WERE THE SUPER PRO

GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL,

YOU WOULD STILL BE

REHEARSING YOUR PLAYS.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP,

BABIES EMERGING FROM THE

WOMB ALREADY ADDICTED TO

HEROIN.

THEY'RE AGITATED,

OVERSTIMULATED, AND

THEY'RE DIFFICULT TO CALM.

UNCONTROLLABLE IS PROBABLY

THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE

IT.

Terry: FIND OUT WHAT

IS BEING DONE TO STOP THIS

DRUG EPIDEMIC, WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: HEROIN, YOU

KNOW, WHEN WE WERE IN

AFGHANISTAN -- WE STILL

ARE THERE -- WE COULD HAVE

ELIMINATED THOSE POPPIES,

BUT WE DIDN'T DO IT.

THE UNITED STATES,

PROBABLY THE C.I.A., HAS

BEEN PUSHING SOME OF THAT

STUFF, AND WE DON'T KNOW

HOW EXTENSIVE THE

GOVERNMENT USE OF IT IS.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO TALK

ABOUT THAT ON THIS

PROGRAM.

BUT HEROIN IS QUITE CHEAP

AND AVAILABLE, AND IT HAS

REACHED EPIDEMICS IN

AMERICA, WITH OVER DOSES

KILLING MORE THAN 10,000

PEOPLE IN THE 2014 ERA

ALONE.

FOR YEARS HEROIN ADDICTION

WAS CONSIDERED A PROBLEM

FOR THE SO-CALLED BIG

CITIES.

BUT AS LORIE JOHNSON

SHOWS, PEOPLE ARE QUICKLY

FINDING OUT THAT THIS

DEADLY DRUG IS IN THEIR

OWN BACKYARD.

Lorie: CAITLIN WEANS

DIED OF A HEROIN OVER DOSE

AT AGE 21.

LIFE HAS JUST BEEN SO

DIFFERENT SINCE.

NO ONE, UNLESS YOU'VE BEEN

IN THAT SITUATION, CAN

EVEN FATHOM HOW THAT TURNS

YOUR WHOLE WORLD UPSIDE

DOWN IN JUST A SECOND.

Lorie: RAISED IN A

SOLID CHRISTIAN HOME,

CAITLIN LOVED SPORTS AND

SCHOOL.

REALLY FAITH IS THE

ONLY THING THAT GETS ME

THROUGH.

I BELIEVE THAT CAITLIN IS

IN HEAVEN.

I BELIEVE SHE IS NOT IN

PAIN ANYMORE.

Lorie: IF IT CAN

HAPPEN TO CAITLIN, IT CAN

HAPPEN TO ANYONE.

THE FACE OF HEROIN HAS

CHANGED.

IT USED TO BE A CRIMINAL

ELEMENT IN THE URBAN CITY,

IN A WAREHOUSE, NOTHING

ABOUT HERE.

NOW THE FACE OF HEROIN IS

MY DAUGHTER, WHO LOVED

SOCCER.

Lorie: AND THOUSANDS

LIKE HER WHO STARTED THE

SAME WAY.

CAITLIN'S ADDICTION BEGAN

INNOCENTLY AND

UNEXPECTEDLY.

SHE FIRST GOT HOOKED ON

PRESCRIPTION PAINKILLERS

FOLLOWING SURGERY.

THESE POWERFUL, OFTEN

HABIT-FORMING NARCOTICS GO

BY NAMES LIKE PERCOCET AND

OXYCONTIN.

AND LATER ON IN HER

STORY, SOMEONE SAID, WHY

NOT TRY HEROIN, IT IS THE

SAME THING.

WITHIN FOUR MONTHS, SHE

DIED OF A HEROIN OVER

DOSE.

Lorie: PRESCRIPTION

PAIN PILLS AND HEROIN

PRODUCE THE SAME TYPE OF

HIGH, BUT HEROIN IS

CHEAPER AND EASIER TO GET.

ANOTHER DIFFERENCE: PAIN

PILLS ARE REGULATED SO YOU

KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GETTING.

WHEN IT COMES TO HEROIN,

DEALERS OFTEN SECRETLY

LACE IT WITH OTHER TOXINS,

CREATING A POTENTIAL

DEADLY BLEND.

NORA KNOWS ALL ABOUT THAT.

WHEN I USED HEROIN THE

FIRST TIME, IT WAS SUCH A

EUPHORIC FEELING, I FELT

LIKE THAT WAS THE FEELING

THAT I HAD BEEN SEARCHING

FOR MY WHOLE LIFE.

Lorie: HOOKED AFTER

THAT FIRST TIME, NORA

STAYED THAT WAY FOR YEARS.

I HAVE A PRAYING MOTHER

AND FATHER, SO THERE WERE

A LOT OF TIMES I WAS IN

THE DEEP DEPTHS OF THE

ADDICTION, IN VERY DARK

PLACES, THAT I KNOW I ONLY

CAME OUT OF BECAUSE OF

THAT.

Lorie: HEROIN ADDICTS

CONTINUALLY NEED MORE OF

IT TO GET THE SAME HIGH.

NORA WOUND UP WITH A $100

A DAY HABIT.

WELL, THAT'S WHERE THE

CRIMINAL ACTIVITY STARTS

TAKING PLACE.

I'VE BEEN TO PRISON THREE

TIMES, ACTUALLY, BECAUSE

OF WHAT THIS DRUG HAS

DONE.

Lorie: AS THE NUMBER

OF ADDICTS SKYROCKET, SO

DOES THE NUMBER OF BABIES

BORN TO THEM, WHO WHEN

THEY COME INTO THE WORLD

ARE ACTUALLY ADDICTS

THEMSELVES AND MUST

IMMEDIATELY ENDURE PAINFUL

WITHDRAWALS.

THIS HAPPENS ALMOST EVERY

DAY AT THIS HOSPITAL.

THE DAY WE VISITED,

MATERNITY NURSES HELPED

DELIVER FIVE.

THEY'RE AC AGITATED,

OVERSTIMULATED.

THEY MAY NOT BE ABLE TO

TOLERATE CHANGES IN THE

ENVIRONMENT.

THEY OFTEN ARE VERY, VERY

UNCONTROLLABLE IS PROBABLY

THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE

IT.

Lorie: WEANING THEM

OFF THE DRUG OFTEN TAKES

WEEKS.

MOST OF THE TIME THE

BABIES STILL GO HOME WITH

MOM, WITH A PLAN IN PLACE

FOR FOLLOWUP AND TO MAKE

SURE EVERYBODY IS GETTING

TREATMENT, LIKE THEY'RE

SUPPOSED TO.

THEY CARE ABOUT THEIR

BABIES.

THEY'RE MOMS.

THEY'RE PROFESSIONAL

WOMEN.

THEY'RE OUR FRIENDS AND

CO-WORKERS AND CHURCH

WORKERS.

Lorie: LIKE NORA,

WHO'S SON, WILLIAM, WAS

BORN ADDICTED.

I FOUND OUT I WAS

PREGNANT AND I WAS STRUNG

OUT ON HEROIN.

AND I WENT TO THE DOCTOR

AND I SAID, DOC, I AM

STRUNG OUT ON HEROIN AND I

AM PREGNANT, AND I WANT TO

HAVE THIS BABY.

WHAT DO WE DO?

Lorie: WILLIAM IS

CLEAN AND HEALTHY.

NORA IS STILL IN RECOVERY.

WHAT IT TOOK FOR ME WAS

FALLING DOWN ON MY KNEES

IN FRONT OF GOD, TELLING

HIM HOW BROKEN I WAS AND

TO PLEASE COME TAKE THIS

FROM ME.

Lorie: MEANWHILE,

LAWMAKERS ARE DOING WHAT

THEY CAN.

VIRGINIA DELEGATE TODD

GILBERT PUSHED THROUGH

LEGISLATION, ALLOWING LAW

ENFORCEMENT TO ADMINISTER

THE SO-CALLED SAFE SHOT TO

OVERDOSE VICTIMS.

UNLESS WE CAN NIP IT IN

THE BUD, AND GET AHEAD OF

THE PROBLEM, WE'RE LEFT

ONLY WITH THE OPTION OF

TRYING TO SAVE THEIR LIVES

SHOULD THE POLICE OFFICERS

FIND THEM IN CRISIS.

Lorie: MOST STATES

ARE FOLLOWING THIS LEAD

WITH SOME ALLOWING TRAINED

CITIZENS TO ADMINISTER THE

SAVE SHOT, ALSO KNOWN AS

NARCAN.

THERE IS ALSO THE 9-1-1

GOOD SAMARITAN LAW,

ALLOWING PEOPLE PRESENT

DURING AN OVER DOSE TO

CALL FOR HELP WITHOUT

RISKING ARREST, ALL IN AN

EFFORT TO LOOSEN HEROIN'S

GRIP ON OUR COUNTRY.

THIS IS A DANGEROUS AND

HIGHLY ADDICTIVE SUBSTANCE

THAT EVEN TEENAGERS ARE

INTRAVENOUSLY INJECTING

INTO THEIR BODIES.

THAT IS A HORRIFIC THOUGHT

AND A HORRIFIC REALITY

WE'RE FACING.

IF WE DON'T GET A HANDLE

ON IT, THE FUTURE LOOKS

VERY BLEAK IN THIS COUNTRY

FOR OUR CHILDREN AND THEIR

FUTURE.

Lorie: LORIE JOHNSON,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: SHOCKING, ISN'T

IT?

THAT STUFF IS COMING OUT

OF AFGHANISTAN, THE POPPY

FIELDS.

THAT'S THE MAIN SOURCE OF

HEROIN.

BUT WE DONT WANT TO

ERADICATE THE POPPIES

BECAUSE THE AFGHAN

PEASANTS WON'T BE HAPPY,

THEY WON'T HAVE A SOURCE

OF INCOME.

THERE IS SOME THOUGHT, IN

THE RECESSES, THAT SOMEHOW

THE C.I.A. MAY HAVE BEEN

INVOLVED IN SOME OF THIS

TRAFFICKING BECAUSE THEY

WANTED THE MONEY, OR THEY

WANTED TO MAKE SOME

EXPERMINGTS.

EXPERIMENTS.

WE'RE NOT SURE WHAT THEY

WANTED TO DO.

NEVERTHELESS, IT IS THERE

AND IT IS PERVASIVE.

WHEN YOU THINK IT IS

CHEAPER TO GET A DOSE OF

HEROIN THAN IT IS TO GET A

LIT MATLEGITIMATE PAINKILLER

THROUGH A PHARMACY, THAT

GETS TO BE A SERIOUS

PROBLEM.

IF YOU SUSPECT SOMEONE YOU

CARE ABOUT MIGHT HAVE A

HEROIN PROBLEM, WE HAVE A

LIST OF WARNING SIGNS ON

OUR WEBSITE,

CBNNEWS.COM.

AND YOU CAN ALSO FIND OUT

WHERE HELP FOR PEOPLE

STRUGGLING WITH AN

ADDICTION TO HEROIN OR

PRESCRIPTION PAIN KILLS IS

LOCATED.

IT IS RIGHT ON OUR

WEBSITE.

YOU CAN LOOK AT THAT.

BUT THEY NEED HELP.

WE DON'T NEED TO CONDEMN

PEOPLE ANYMORE.

WE NEED TO GIVE THEM A

HAND.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, THE FUNCTIONAL METH

HEAD WHO REACHED HER

BREAKING POINT IN THE BACK

OF A PRISON CELL.

SHE LOOKED AT ME AND

SHE GOES, YOU THINK THIS

IS BAD, WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE

THE REAL HELL.

Terry: WATCH WHAT

BROKE HER 11-YEAR

ADDICTION IN AN INSTANT,

WHEN WE RETURN.

Wendy: COMING UP, HIS

BUSINESS FAILED, AND HE

THOUGHT HIS LIFE DID AS

WELL.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND

WHAT WAS HAPPENING.

Wendy: HEAR HOW HE

PICKED HIMSELF UP IN A WAY

HE NEVER EXPECTED.

WOW, THAT WAS FOR ME.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"THE 700 CLUB."

Pat: WE'RE DELIGHTED

TO SEE YOU WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB" POST-DEBATE.

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

THE DEBATE NOW.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT

AN ADDICTION.

SHE DESCRIBED IT LIKE A

FINGERNAIL AT THE BACK OF

MY BRAIN.

THAT'S HOW CHRIS Mc

McKLOFSKY DESCRIBED HER

METH ADDICTION.

SHE SPENT MORE THAN A

DECADE LOOKING FOR MORE

DRUGS.

AND HERE IS WHAT IT TOOK

TO BREAK HER HABIT ONCE

AND FOR ALL.

WHEN DAD GOT DRUNK,

THAT GOT SCARY.

BUT AS A LITTLE GIRL, I

ALWAYS JUST WANTED MY

DADDY SO MUCH.

Lorie: CHRIS' PARENTS

DIVORCED WHEN SHE WAS

FIVE, AND HER MOTHER, HAD

WAS A CHRISTIAN, WAS GIVEN

FULL CUSTODY.

BUT HER FATHER'S BEHAVIOR

CONTINUED TO INFLUENCE

HER.

I REMEMBER HIM ALWAYS

BEING INAPPROPRIATE, VERY

SEXUALIZED TALK IN FRONT

OF ME, WHEN I WAS A LITTLE

GIRL.

Lorie: THEN WHEN SHE

WAS 13, HER FATHER'S

DRUNKEN SEXUAL TALK

ESCALATED.

IT NEVER WENT ALL THE

WAY TO TAKE MY VIRGINITY,

BUT IT WAS DEFINITELY

PHYSICAL.

Lorie: HER FATHER

MOLESTED HER FOR THREE

YEARS.

CHRIS WAS TOO EMBARRASSED

TO TELL HER MOTHER.

INSTEAD, SHE STARTED

DRINKING AND DOING DRUGS,

AND SEEKING OUT ATTENTION

FROM BOYS, IN THE ONLY WAY

SHE KNEW HOW.

I THOUGHT MY WORTH AND

MY VALUE WAS IN MY SEX.

THAT'S HOW YOU GET

ATTENTION.

THAT'S HOW YOU GET

APPROVAL.

THAT'S HOW YOU GET LOVE.

BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I HAD

BEEN TAUGHT.

Lorie: CHRIS WAS

ALREADY ADDICTED TO DRUGS

AND ALCOHOL WHEN SHE LEFT

HOME AT 17 TO JOIN THE AIR

FORCE.

SHE STOPPED USING IN THE

MILITARY, BUT ONCE

HONORABLY DISCHARGED, SHE

TRIED METH FOR THE FIRST

TIME.

I REMEMBER THINKING,

OH, MY GOSH, I HAVE

FINALLY FOUND THE THING

I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR MY

WHOLE LIFE.

THE EUPHORIA -- EVERYTHING

WAS HEIGHTENED.

THIS IS GREAT.

Lorie: SHE WAS

INSTANTLY HOOKED AND BEGAN

LOSING EVERY DAY.

WHEN I WOULD TRY TO GO

A DAY WITHOUT METH, IT WAS

LIKE THIS FINGERNAIL THAT

WOULD DIG AT THE BACK OF

MY BRAIN AND IT WOULD MAKE

ME OBSESSED.

AND I WAS, LIKE, WHAT AM I

GOING TO DO?

Lorie: INCREASINGLY

CRIPPLED BY THE MEMORY OF

HER FATHER'S ABUSE, CHRIS

REACH OUT TO HIM FOR SOME

SORT OF RESOLUTION.

I WROTE IN THIS LETTER,

TELL ME YOU'RE SORRY, AND

WE'LL HAVE A FRIENDSHIP.

AND HE WROTE ME BACK THIS

LETTER THAT SAID, "NO

APOLOGIES: NO REGRETS."

THAT WAS A BREAKING POINT

FOR ME.

I GOT REALLY SERIOUS ABOUT

MY DRUG ADDICTION AFTER

THAT.

ALWAYS WANTING SOMETHING

FROM SOMEONE WHO DIDN'T

HAVE IT TO GIVE.

Lorie: CHRIS WAS A

FUNCTIONAL ADDICT, ABLE TO

WORK AS A BARTENDER, AND

EVEN ABLE TO ATTEND

COLLEGE.

BUT SHE WAS ALWAYS FEARFUL

OF RUNNING OUT OF METH.

SHE MADE A DEAL, SHE WOULD

HAND OVER HER COLLEGE

MONEY IF HE WOULD HAND HER

THE DRUGS.

THERE WAS THIS KNOCK AT

MY DOOR AND THERE WAS WHAT

LOOKED LIKE A S.W.A.T.

TEAM.

AND THEY SAYING MY NAME

AND PULLING ME OUT OF MY

DOOR AND TYING MY HANDS

BEHIND ME AND TELLING ME

I'M UNDER ARREST FOR

CONSPIRACY TO TRAFFIC OVER

500 GRAMS OF

METHAMPHETAMINE.

I HAD MAYBE A HALF GRAM IN

MY HOUSE, TOPS.

I'M LIKE, THIS IS CRAZY.

Lorie: THE D.E.A. HAD

TAPPED HER SUPPLIER'S

PHONE AND MISTAKENLY

TAPPED HER.

CHRIS WAS ARRESTED ALONG

WITH 25 OTHER DEALERS AND

CHARGED WITH A FEDERAL

OFFENSE.

I WENT BEFORE THE

FEDERAL JUDGE AND CARTE

BLANCHE, SHE SAID NONE OF

US WAS GETTING RELEASED.

THIS TIME THE FINGERNAIL

STARTED AND I'M STARTING

TO WITHDRAWAL.

Lorie: CONFESSING TO

ANOTHER INMATE THAT SHE

FELT SHE WAS IN HELL --

SHE LOOKED AT ME AND

SHE GOES, YOU THINK THIS

IS BAD, YOU WAIT UNTIL YOU

SEE THE REAL HELL.

AND THAT'S ALL SHE SAID,

AND THAT'S ALL IT TOOK.

AND IT IS LIKE ALL OF

THOSE YEARS OF MY MOM

TALKING TO ME ABOUT

JESUS -- I'M, LIKE, OH, MY

GOSH, I'VE GOT TO REACH

OUT TO JESUS.

SO I WENT INTO MY CELL.

AND I REMEMBER GETTING ON

MY KNEES AND ASKING JESUS

TO FORGIVE ME AND COME

INTO MAY HEART BECAUSE I

DON'T KNOW WHERE I WOULD

HAVE ENDED UP HAD THAT NOT

HAPPENED, BUT IT WOULDN'T

HAVE BEEN GOOD.

OR EVEN TO BE THAT EMPTY

ANOTHER SECOND.

Lorie: CHRIS GAVE HER

LIFE TO CHRIST THAT DAY,

AND SHE WAS GIVEN

SOMETHING IN RETURN.

I STOPPED CRAVING

DRUGS.

AND I NEVER FELT IT AGAIN.

THEN I REALIZED THAT WAS

THE MOMENT HE HAD HEALED

ME.

HE HAD HEALED ME FROM AN

ADDICTION THAT HAD SPANNED

MY ENTIRE LIFE.

IT WAS SUDDENLY LIFTED AND

GONE.

Lorie: CHRIS' CHARGE

WAS EVENTUALLY REDUCED TO

ONE COUNT OF DRUG

TRAFFICKING, AND SHE WAS

SENTENCED TO A YEAR IN

FEDERAL PRISON.

SHE CONTINUED TO GROW IN

HER FAITH AND STUDY THE

BIBLE.

AND SHE WAS FINAL ABLE TO

FORGIVE HER FATHER.

THAT'S WHERE I GAINED

THE FREEDOM IN CHRIST.

YOU KNOW, WHERE HE REALLY

SET ME FREE.

AND I SEE MY DAD FOR WHAT

HE TRULY WAS, AND THAT WAS

JUST A BROKEN, HURTING

PERSON, WHO, HIMSELF,

NEEDED THE LOVE OF HIS

HEAVENLY DADDY TO FIX HIM.

I THINK NOW THAT THAT WAS

A LIFE-LONG QUEST THAT HAS

FINALLY BEEN SATED INSIDE

OF ME BECAUSE OF MY

HEAVENLY DADDY.

Lorie: TODAY SHE IS

MARRIED AND SERVES AS

DIRECTOR OF A COUNSELLING

MINISTRY IN ILLINOIS.

AS A CHILD OF GOD, SHE

SEES HERSELF IN A WHOLE

NEW LIGHT.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT

I'VE LEARNED FROM GOD IS

THAT I'M A TREASURE.

I'M SPECIAL.

WE ALL ARE.

AND THAT OUR WORTH AND

VALUE IS SET BY WHAT

CHRIST DID ON THE CROSS.

SO TO HIM, I'M WORTH

EVERYTHING.

Pat: OH, SHE IS SO

RIGHT.

YOU'RE A TREASURE.

YOU ARE A TREASURE.

AND YOUR WORTH IS

DEPENDENT ON WHAT HE SAYS,

NOT WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO

YOU OR DONE TO YOU.

THE ONE THING ABOUT HER IS

SHE LEARNED TO FORGIVE HER

FATHER, AND THAT WAS

TOUGH.

BECAUSE THIS MAN ROBBED

HER OF THE MOST PRECIOUS

THING SHE HAD WHEN SHE WAS

JUST A KID.

BUT, ANYHOW, GOD FORGIVES.

AND WHAT HE SAYS TO YOU

IS, IF YOU HAVE OUGHT

AGAINST ANY, FORGIVE SO

THAT YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER

MIGHT FORGIVE YOU.

WHATEVER IT IS GOING ON IN

YOUR LIFE, GOD CAN FIX IT.

INSTANT DELIVERANCE FROM

METH ADDICTION.

INSTANT DELIVERANCE FROM

HEROIN ADDICTION.

INSTANT DELIVERANCE FROM

ANY OTHER THING THAT IS

BOTHERING YOU.

GOD CAN SET YOU FREE.

HE IS SO POWERFUL.

IF YOU WANT A NEW LIFE

RIGHT NOW, WHAT WAS SAID

TO CHRIS, YOU THINK THIS

IS HELL, WAIT UNTIL YOU

SEE THE REAL THING.

THE REAL THING IS

HORRIBLE.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GO

THERE.

YOU DON'T EVEN WANT TO

CONTEMPLATE IT BECAUSE IT

IS SO AWFUL.

AND GOD DID NOT INTEND YOU

FOR WRATH, BUT THAT YOU

MIGHT BE A CHILD OF GOD.

IF YOU'LL PRAY WITH ME

RIGHT NOW, GOD WILL DO

SOMETHING WONDERFUL FOR

YOU.

JUST BOW YOUR HEAD AND

PRAY THESE WORDS.

DO IT NOW.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT,

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU NOW.

JUST SAY THOSE WORDS WITH

ME.

I COME TO YOU NOW AS A

SINNER, AND I E ASK FOR YOUR

FORGIVENESS.

LORD, I GIVE YOU MY HEART

RIGHT NOW.

EVERYTHING THAT I AM AND

HAVE, I TURN OVER TO YOU.

AND I RECEIVE FROM YOU THE

LIBERTY OF THE CHILDREN OF

GOD.

THANK YOU, LORD, THAT

YOU'VE HEARD MY PRAYER.

THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE COME

INTO MY HEART.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME

JUST THEN, I WANT TO DO

SOMETHING FOR YOU.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU A

PACKET.

I HAVE SOMETHING HERE

CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IN IT IS A COMPACT DISK.

73 MINUTES OF VERY

COMPREHENSIVE TEACHING

ABOUT WHAT YOU JUST DID.

IF ANYBODY IS IN CHRIST,

HE IS A NEW CREATION.

I'LL SEND YOU THIS FREE IF

YOU'LL JUST CALL.

IT IS AN EASY NUMBER TO

REMEMBER: 1-800-700-7000.

1-800-700-7000.

CALL NOW.

SOMEBODY IS ON THE PHONE

WHO LOVES YOU.

JUST SAY, I PRAYED WITH

PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

AND IF YOU WANT FURTHER

PRAYER, THEY'LL PRAY FOR

YOU.

YOU JUST TELL THEM WHAT

YOU NEED.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, AN

ENTREPRENEUR LOSES HIS

BUSINESS AND HAS TO MOVE

BACK HOME WITH HIS

PARENTS.

I FELL INTO A

DEPRESSION.

AND THEN I STARTED TO

PANIC.

AND THEN I STARTED TO FEEL

SO AFRAID OF EVERYTHING

THAT I JUST KIND OF STAYED

IN MY ROOM.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

MAN IS SET FREE FROM

PARALYZING FEAR IN AN

INSTANT.

> PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO

BE PRAYING FOR YOU, SO

DON'T GO AWAY.

WE'LL BE BACK.

WELCOME BACK TO

EXPECT: RIGHT HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES.

THE CONTROVERSIAL CARVING

IS LOCATED IN NEW MEXICO.

THE 80-TON ROCK CONTAINS

THE TEXT OF THE 10

COMMANDMENTS IN AN ANCIENT

FORM OF HEBREW.

THEY REPORT THAT THE

BOULDERS SO LARGE IT MAY

HAVE BEEN IN ITS PRESENT

LOCATION SINCE THE TIME OF

KING SOLOMON.

Pat: AFTER THE

ELECTION, PERFECT.

Terry: WELL, WHEN

GEORGE McREYNOLDS

BUSINESS TANKED, HE WAS

FORCED TO MOVE BACK IN

WITH HIS PARENTS.

AND SOON A PARALYZING FEAR

BEGAN TO SET IN.

GEORGE BECAME A PRISONER

IN HIS OWN ROOM.

I HAD A LOT OF

BUSINESS.

I WAS BUSY ALMOST EVERY

WEEKEND, AND SENDING THREE

OR FOUR BOOTHS OUT A

WEEKEND, AND MAYBE A

COUPLE DURING THE WEEK.

Reporter: GEORGE

McREYNOLDS' BUSINESS,

RENTING OUT RENTAL PHOTO

BOOTHS HAD BEEN THRIVING

FOR YEARS.

BUT AS OTHER COMPETITORS

ENTERED THE MARKET, HIS

CLIENT BASE DROPPED OFF

DRAMATICALLY.

WE WERE ONE OF THE

FIRST ONES TO START IT IN

THE AREA, BUT NOW

EVERYBODY HAD A PHOTO

BOOTH.

AND PEOPLE WEREN'T PAYING

AS MUCH MONEY FOR THEM.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

GEORGE COULDN'T AFFORD TO

LIVE ON HIS OWN AND HAD TO

MOVE BACK IN WITH HIS

PARENTS.

IT WAS ACTUALLY

DEVASTATING BECAUSE I

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD

DO NEXT BECAUSE I HAD

ALWAYS BEEN ON MY OWN.

HOW WAS I GOING TO PAY MY

BILLS AND SURVIVE?

I TRIED TO LOOK FOR OTHER

JOBS, AND WORK FREE LANCE

FOR OTHER PEOPLE, DOING

VIDEO WORK.

NOTHING STUCK.

I FELT DIRECTIONLESS.

I FELL INTO DEPRESSION

BECAUSE OF THE FINANCES

AND I FELT LIKE KIND OF A

FAILURE.

I DIDN'T WANT TO GO OUT OF

THE HOUSE.

I LOST MY MOTIVATION TO

WORK.

EVEN SOCIALIZE.

Reporter: GEORGE ALSO

BEGAN TO QUESTION GOD.

I LOST MY FAITH AT THIS

POINT.

I SAW THINGS GOING SO BAD,

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT

WAS HAPPENING.

AM I GOING TO BE

FINANCIALLY OKAY, MENTALLY

OKAY?

SOOR IS THIS IT?

IS THIS IT?

IS THIS MY LIFE?

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

HE KEPT FEELING WORSE.

IT GOT BAD.

MY DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY

GOT REALLY BAD.

AND THEN I STARTED TO

PANIC.

AND THEN I STARTED TO FEEL

SO AFRAID OF EVERYTHING

THAT I JUST KIND OF STAYED

IN MY ROOM.

Reporter: ONE DAY HE

TURNED ON THE TELEVISION.

IT WAS JUST ON.

I TURNED THE TV ON, AND IT

WAS ON, "THE 700 CLUB."

AND PAT WAS PRAYING.

Pat: SOMEBODY, I

BELIEVE THE NAME IS

GEORGE, YOU ARE SO

TERRIFIED.

YOU ARE JUST HAVING

TERROR.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHITE KNOW QUITE KNOW

WHAT YOU'RE AFRAID OF, BUT

YOU ARE AFRAID OF

EVERYTHING.

GOD IS SETTING YOU FREE.

PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT

FEAR BECAUSE FEAR IS

TORMENT.

THE SPIRIT OF FEAR IS

LEAVING YOU NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

IT WAS SPECIFIC.

AND I FELT LIKE IT WAS

PERFECT TIMING.

I TURNED ON THE TV, AND

THERE HE IS.

THE NEXT MOMENT AFTER HE

PRAYED, I GOT UP AND I

FELT CLEAR.

I FELT, LIKE, GOOD.

AND I JUST WENT OUT.

THAT WAS IT.

I REALLY JUST WENT OUT.

AND I WAS, LIKE, WOW, THAT

WAS FOR ME.

AFTER THE NEXT COUPLE OF

DAYS, I STARTED TO FEEL

GOOD ABOUT MY LIFE AGAIN.

I STILL HAD THE SAME

PROBLEM AND I STILL HAD

THE SAME CIRCUMSTANCES I

WAS IN, BUT I KNEW THAT

GOD WAS WITH ME FROM THAT

MOMENT.

ONE, TWO, THREE.

Reporter: WITH HIS

FAITH IN GOD RESTORED,

GEORGE OVERCAME HIS FEARS

AND GOT BACK TO WORK.

THIS TIME HE DECIDED TO

TRUST GOD WITH HIS

BUSINESS.

AND IT HAS BEEN GROWING

STEADILY EVER SINCE.

THE PHONE IS RINGING

OFF THE HOOK BECAUSE GOD

IS IN CONTROL OF IT.

I'M NOT IN CONTROL AND

TRYING TO FIX IT.

I LET HIM HAVE IT.

I LEARNED MOST THAT JESUS

KNOWS ME AND KNOWS EXACTLY

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN MY

LIFE.

HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING,

AND IT IS ALL ABOUT TRUST,

JUST TRUSTING HIM, THAT HE

HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.

Terry: EVEN WHEN, AND

ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CAN'T

SEE IT AND THINGS DON'T

FEEL RIGHT, GOD HAS GOT IT

ALL UNDER CONTROL.

Pat: ISN'T THAT

AMAZING.

HERE IS ONE THAT MIGHT BE

INTERESTING FOR YOU.

LOU, WHO LIVED IN GENEVA,

ILLINOIS, WAS IN PAIN DUE

TO A BULGING DISK IN HER

BACK.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

AND, TERRY, YOU HAD THIS

WORD: "YOU HAVE BEEN

HAVING ISSUES WITH YOUR

BACK AND GOD IS SETTING

YOU FREE."

LOU SAID, THAT'S ME, AND

SHE STOOD UP AND REALIZED

THERE WAS NO MORE PAIN.

THE BULGE HAS GONE DOWN

AND SHE IS FINE.

Terry: NANCY IN

GEORGIA DEVELOPED SLEEP

PROBLEMS.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND PAT, SHE

HEARD YOU SAY, "THERE ARE

SOME IN THIS AUDIENCE WHO

ARE GRIPPED WITH FEAR.

YOU ARE AFRAID AND FILLED

WITH ANXIETY.

THE LORD IS GIVING YOU

PEACE."

SHE CLAIMED THE WORD AND

SHE HAS NOT HAD ANY SLEEP

PROBLEMS, ANY ANXIETY, OR

ANY FEAR SINCE THEN.

Pat: TERRY, YOU KNOW

THE SPIRIT OF FEAR IS THE

MOST DEBILITATING THING.

YOU DON'T WANT TO DO

ANYTHING.

IT IS A DEMON SPIRIT.

AND GOD WANTS TO SET YOU

FREE FROM THOSE THINGS.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY RIGHT

NOW FOR YOU, WHATEVER THE

PROBLEM IS.

WE'LL JOIN HANDS.

FATHER, I JOIN HANDS WITH

MY SISTER IN CHRIST.

WE AGREE AND THANK YOU FOR

WHAT YOU DO FOR GEORGE AND

WHAT YOU'VE DONE FOR THESE

OTHER PEOPLE.

ALL ACROSS THIS AUDIENCE,

AND WHEREVER IN THE WORLD

THEY'RE WATCHING, LET THE

POWER OF GOD AT THIS

MOMENT COME AND TOUCH THEM

IN JESUS' NAME.

IN JESUS' NAME, RECEIVE AN

ANSWER TO YOUR PRAYER.

MAY THE ANOINTING OF THE

SPIRIT OF GOD SET YOU

FREE.

THERE IS A WOMAN NAMED

MARY, YOU'VE GOT MORNING

SICKNESS, AND YOU'RE

PREGNANT AND YOU'RE SO

NAUSEATED, YOU DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

YOU ARE CRYING OUT TO GOD.

GOD HAS HEARD YOU AND HE

HAS HEALED YOU IN JESUS'

NAME.

IT WILL BE AN EASY

PREGNANCY AND A WONDERFUL

CHILD.

Terry: AND THERE IS

SOMEONE WHO IS WATCHING

THIS IN PRISON, AND YOU

KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO BE

RELEASED, AND YOU'RE

GRIPPED WITH FEAR AND YOUR

ABILITY TO HANDLE THINGS

AND YOUR CHILDREN, AND ALL

OF THE ABOVE.

AND GOD IS SAYING TODAY,

GIVE IT TO ME.

I SET YOU FREE FROM YOUR

FEAR AND ANXIETY IN JESUS'

NAME.

Pat: SOMEBODY HAS

POPPED OUT -- THERE IS A

VEIN IN YOUR NECK AND IT

HAS POPPED OUT, AND PUT

YOUR HAND ON THAT NOW, AND

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, THAT

PAIN HAS GONE AWAY.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE WITH A

PROBLEM IN YOUR HIP JOINT.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU AND THE PAIN IS JUST

GOING TO BE GONE IN JESUS'

NAME.

Pat: TOUCH LIVES,

LORD, ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

LET THERE BE REVIVAL IN

AMERICA.

LET THERE BE REVIVAL IN

THIS GREAT LAND.

IN JESUS' NAME WE ASK IT.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

> WELL, STILL TIME FOR

ANOTHER ROUND OF "BRING IT

ON."

ONE VIEWER ASKS, "I'M

ADDICTED TO PORN.

WHY IS SEXUAL IMMORTALITY

SO COMMON AND WHY IS IT SO

DIFFICULT TO OVERCOME?"

PAT IS GOING TO WEIGH IN

ON THAT AND MORE, AND IT'S

ALL COMING UP NEXT.

Terry: ROSIO IS A

SINGLE MOM, RAISING THREE

CHILDREN AND SHE IS ALSO

CARING FOR HER OWN MOTHER.

SO WHEN SHE LOST HER ONLY

SOURCE OF INCOME, SHE

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO

UNTIL SHE MET A TEAM FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING."

Reporter: ROSIO IS

PRETTY SURE WHY HER BOAT

SANK INTO THE AMAZON

RIVERS NEAR HER HOME, EVEN

THOUGH IT SEEMED FINE THE

NIGHT BEFORE.

THE NEXT DAY I FOUND MY

CANOE SUNKEN, MUDDY AND

TORN.

Reporter: SHE HAD

CONSTANTLY PATCHED THE OLD

WOODEN BOAT OVER THE

YEARS.

SHE USED IT AS A WATER

TAXI TO FERRY PEOPLE UP

AND DOWN THE RIVER.

AFTER HER HUSBAND

ABANDONED HER, IT WAS THE

ONLY SOURCE OF INCOME TO

PROVIDE FOR HER ELDERLY

MOTHER AND THREE CHILDREN.

NOW HER BOAT WAS GONE.

I SAID TO MYSELF, HOW

CAN I USE IT NOW?

I WAS SO DESPERATE.

Reporter: WE LEARNED

ABOUT ROSIO'S SITUATION

THROUGH HER SON'S

PRE-SCHOOL, WHICH IS

SUPPORTED BY "OPERATION

BLESSING."

FIRST WE PROVIDED THE

FAMILY WITH AN EMERGENCY

SUPPLY OF FOOD.

THEN WE HIRED A LOCAL

CRAFTSMAN TO BUILD HER HA A

NEW BOAT.

I AM SO RELIEVED AND

HAPPY BECAUSE I HAVE THE

NEW BOAT TO PROVIDE FOR MY

CHILDREN.

Reporter: NOW SHE IS

BUSIER THAN EVER, AND HER

NEW WATER TAXI ALWAYS

SEEMS TO BE FULL OF

PASSENGERS.

THANK YOU, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR GIVING ME A

BEAUTIFUL BOAT.

I FEEL VERY HAPPY.

Terry: I LOVE THE

STORY OF ROSIO BECAUSE SHE

IS LIKE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO

LIVE IN THIRD-WORLD

COUNTRIES, WHO ARE BESET

WITH POVERTY.

SHE IS A HARD-WORKING

WOMAN.

SHE IS NOT ASKING NOT TO

WORK.

SHE IS NOT ASKING FOR

ANYTHING, REALLY.

SHE IS EVEN TAKING ON THE

RESPONSIBILITY OF HER

MOTHER, WHO HAS POOR HELP.

BUT SHE DOESN'T HAVE WHAT

SHE NEEDS TO CONTINUE TO

WORK AND SUPPORT HER

FAMILY.

YOU ALLOWED US, IF YOU'RE

A "700 CLUB" MEMBER, TO

COME INTO HER NEED AND

PROVIDE EXACTLY WHAT SHE

NEEDED WITH DIGNITY, HOPE

FOR THE FUTURE, AND AN

OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE MORE

THAN SHE HAS TODAY AND TO

PROVIDE FOR HER CHILDREN.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

THAT'S THE KIND OF THING

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS ARE

DOING ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

WE WANT TO INVITE THE REST

OF YOU TO JOIN WITH US.

IN FACT, WE NEED YOU TO.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO GO TO

YOUR PHONE AND CALL OUR

TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

IT IS SO EASY TO REMEMBER.

IT'S 1-800-700-7000.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT

TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IT'S 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, AND THAT MAKES YOU

A "700 CLUB" MEMBER.

THE MINUTE YOU JOIN,

YOU'LL HAVE THE PRIVILEGE

OF KNOWING YOU'RE TOUCHING

AND CHANGING LIVES AROUND

THE WORLD WITHOUT EVER

LEAVING YOUR LIVING ROOM.

BUT WE WANT TO SAY THANK

YOU FOR CARING ABOUT OTHER

PEOPLE.

PAT HAS GONE INTO THE

SOUND STUDIO AND RECORDED

THE GOSPEL OF JOHN ON TWO

C.D.s.

I LOVE LISTENING TO THIS

WHILE I'M TRAVELLING IN MY

CAR, AND I'VE REALLY HEARD

SOME THINGS THAT I HAVEN'T

SEEN WHEN I'VE READ THE

GOSPEL OF JOHN BEFORE.

HERE IS DONALD WHO LIVES

IN JONESTOWN,

PENNSYLVANIA.

HE SAYS, "I HEAR PAT'S

LOVE OF THE WORD AND HIS

DEEP JOY IN THE LORD TO

SHARE IT."

AND THAT IS THE TRUTH.

IT IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

GO TO YOUR PHONE AND CALL

AND WE'LL GET IT OUT RIGHT

AWAY.

NOW LET'S "BRING IT ON"

WITH THIS QUESTION: "WHY

IS SEXUAL IMMORTALITY SO

COMMON AND WHY IS IT SO

DIFFICULT TO OVERCOME.

I'M A 23-YEAR-OLD MAN AND

I'M IN BONDAGE TO

PORNOGRAPHY AND LUFLT.

LUST.

I DON'T WANT THIS SIN IN

MY HEART.

IT SAYS, KNOW THEE THEE NOT, NO

AFORNICATORS THERE ENTER

THE KINGDOM.

WHY HAVE I FAILED?"

Pat: YOU ARE A SEXUAL

BEING.

GOD MADE YOU THAT WAY.

YOU HAVE APPETITES.

YOU CAN EAT FOOD.

GLUTTONY SEEMS TO BE THE

APPROVED SIN IN THE

BAPTIST CHURCH.

THEY HAVE HUGE POT-LUCK

SUPPERS --

Terry: IT MIGHT NOT

JUST BE THE BAPTISTS.

Pat: OKAY.

DRINKING WATER -- WE HAVE

THIRST.

AND PEOPLE DRINK BEER AND

WINE AND ALL OF THESE

THINGS.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, IT IS

THE DRUNKENNESS PART THAT

IS BAD.

BUT THE OTHER IS SEXUAL

DESIRE.

AND HAD IS GOD PUT IN TO

PROCREATE THE RACE.

BUT HE SAID IN ORDER TO

BRING FORTH GODLY OFF

SPRING, YOU NEED TO DO IT

IN THE CONFINES OF

MARRIAGE BECAUSE THE

CHILDREN NEED A MOTHER AND

THEY NEED A FATHER.

THAT WHICH IS OUTSIDE OF

IT IS FORNICATION OR

ADULTERY.

NOW, WHAT DOES THE BIBLE

SAY?

IT IS BETTER TO MARRY THAN

TO BURN WITH DESIRE.

NOW, YOU SAY, WELL, THE

BIBLE SAYS THAT?

YES, IT DOES.

SO LET EVERYBODY HAVE HIS

OWN WIFE AND EVERY WOMAN

HAVE THEIR OWN HUSBAND.

THAT MARRIAGE IS WHAT GOD

HAS SET UP SO THAT THOSE

DESIRES CAN BE

LEGITIMATELY EXERCISED

WITHOUT ANY FEAR OF

CONDEMNATION.

SO YOU'RE A YOUNG GUY.

YOUYOU'RE 23.

MAY I PLEASE RECOMMEND

THAT YOU SEEK ROMANCE AND

SAY OFF OF PORN.

BECAUSE PORN IS A

SUBSTITUTE, AND IT IS

ILLUSIONERY AND IT IS

DEADLY AND IT HAS EVERY

BIT OF THE ADDICTIVE POWER

OF HEROIN OR COCAINE, IF

NOT WORSE.

Terry: LEANN SAYS,

"IS IT OKAY TO PERSONALIZE

SCRIPTURE BASED ON YOUR

OWN LIFE SCRIPTURES.

EPHESIANS 5: 28 SAYS:

"HUSBANDS ARE TO LOVE

THEIR WIVES AS THEY LOVE

THEIR OWN BODIES.

CAN WE CHANGE HUSBAND AND

WIFE TO BOYFRIEND AND

GIRLFRIEND, IF WE'RE NOT

MARRIED YET BUT JUST

DATING?"

Pat: I REALLY DON'T

THINK SO.

IT DOESN'T SAY, YOU

BOYFRIEND.

YOU LOVE YOUR WIFE LIKE

YOUR OWN BODY BECAUSE

THERE IS A UNION.

A MAN WILL LEAVE HIS

MOTHER AND FATHER AND

CLEVCLEAVE TO HIS WIFE.

YOU AIN'T ONE FLESH WITH

YOUR BOYFRIEND.

Terry: OR SHOULDN'T

BE.

Pat: OR SHOULDN'T BE.

Terry: SARA SAYS, "A

YEAR AGO I STOPPED BEING

FRIENDS WITH SOMEONE WHO

IS A NON-BELIEVER.

WE'VE BEEN FRIENDS SINCE

FOURTH GRADE.

WE'RE BOTH MARRIED AND

HAVE CHILDREN.

ALL THIS TIME I THOUGHT

SHE DID BELIEVE, BUT WHEN

SHE TOLD ME SHE DIDN'T, I

FELT LIED TO.

MY DECISION WAS EXTREMELY

HARD FOR ME, AND I

COULDN'T DO IT FACE TO

FACE, SO I WROTE HER A

LETTER.

NOW MONTHS HAVE GONE BY

AND IT IS HAUNTING ME.

MAYBE I WAS THE ONE TO

SHOW HER GOD.

THEN AGAIN, I'M NOT GOD.

I'M STRUGGLING.

DID I MAKE THE WRONG

CHOICE?"

Pat: YOU HAVE MADE

THE WRONG DECISION.

THIS IS YOUR DEAR FRIEND.

LIFE-LONG FRIENDS.

THE FACT SHE IS NOT A

BELIEVER IS NO REASON TO

CUT HER OFF.

SHE IS NOT LEADING YOU

INTO SIN.

SHE IS THE ONE YOU COULD

LEAD TO THE LORD.

IT IS YOUR LOVE FOR HER AS

A FRIEND THAT WOULD ENABLE

YOU TO INTRODUCE HER TO

JESUS CHRIST.

IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE THAT,

YOU CERTAINLY SHOULD.

SO YOU SAY, DID I DO THE

WRONG THING?

YOU DID DO THE WRONG

THING, YES.

Terry: THIS IS A

VIEWER WHO SAYS, "MY

HUSBAND HAS BEEN PLAYING

AN ONLINE GAME WITH OTHER

PEOPLE, AND IT INCLUDES

ELEMENTS OF WITCHCRAFT.

MY DOCTORS AND I HAVE

WITNESSED REALLY WEIRD

THINGS HAPPENING IN OUR

HOME.

HOW DO I PRAY FOR MY

HUSBAND AND HOW DO I

CONVINCE HIM HE IS

BRINGING BAD THINGS INTO

OUR O O HOME.

HOME.

HE GETS ANGRY WHEN I BRING

IT UP."

Pat: MAYBE YOU CAN

GET A SENIOR PASTOR OR A

TRUSTED ADVISOR TO TELL

HIM THIS IS A PROBLEM.

THERE WAS A GAME CALLED

"DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS,"

AND THE NEXT THING YOU

KNOW, THEY WERE IN A

FANTASY WORLD THAT REALLY

CAPTURED THEM.

DEMONS ARE OUT TO DESTROY

YOU, AND YOUR HUSBAND

NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THAT.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

NEHEMIAH 8: "THE JOY OF

THE LORD IS YOUR

STRENGTH."

> TOMORROW, SEE WHAT A

MAN PACKED UP HIS WIFE AND

KIDS AND MOVED TO SOUTH

SUDAN.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
