COMING UP, A SEMINARY,

INSIDE A PRISON CELL.

THIS IS MY MISSION

FIELD.

PLUS, A KILLER HEADACHE

THAT LEFT DOCTORS STUMPED.

I JUST GAVE UP ON THAT.

WATCH WHAT FINALLY

BROUGHT HER RELIEF.

I HAVEN'T HAD ANY PAIN

SINCE.

AND THEN...THEY'RE

CALLED LOST KITES,

ABANDONED CHILDREN

FIGHTING FOR LIFE.

NOW SEE ONE FILM-MAKER WHO

WANTS TO BRING THEM HOME

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: IT HAS BEEN

SAID, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, THAT WHATEVER

THE CLINTONS TOUCH TURNS

DIRTY.

THEY HAVE CORRUPTED, IN MY

OPINION, THE F.B.I., A

FORMERLY HONORABLE

SERVICE, AND THE PEOPLE

WHO WORK THERE ARE

APPALLED.

DO YOU REALIZE A GENERAL,

A MAJOR-GENERAL, JUST GOT

CONVICTED OF LEAKING

CLASSIFIED INFORMATION,

NOT EVEN A FRACTION OF

WHAT HILLARY CLINTON DID.

BUT THE WikiLEAKS KEEP

LEAKING, AND THE TRUTH IS

OUT, BUT ARE THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE PAYING ANY

ATTENTION TO IT?

WELL, THIS ONE SEEMS TO

HAVE GOTTEN EVERYBODY'S

ATTENTION, WHERE AN AGENT

SAYS, OKAY, WHAT I WANT

YOU TO DO -- THIS IS AN

F.B.I. GUY -- YOU TAKE

SUBPOENAED DOCUMENTS THAT

ARE ALREADY SUBPOENAED,

AND I WANT YOU TO CHANGE

SOMETHING ON THE

CLASSIFICATION, FROM TOP

SECRET TO LOWER

CLASSIFICATION.

AND THEY SAID IN ORDER TO

DO THAT, WHAT WE'LL DO TO

THE F.B.I., THE STATE

DEPARTMENT MAN SAID, WE'LL

GIVE YOU NICE VACATIONS OR

BEACH BUNGALOWS OR

SOMETHING.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

THEY CALLED IT QUID PRO

QUO.

AND IN ADDITION, WE HAVE

IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE --

Terry: MORE

INDICATIONS THAT THE MEDIA

IS FAVORING HILLARY

CLINTON IN THE RACE FOR

THE WHITE HOUSE.

A SHOCKER, RIGHT?

HEATHER SELLS BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Heather: F.B.I. FILES

RELEASED ON MONDAY SHOW

JUST LAST YEAR A TOP STATE

DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL TRYING

TO COVER UP A BENGHAZI

E-MAIL ON HILLARY

CLINTON'S PRIVATE SERVER.

IT HAPPENED DURING THE

F.B.I. INVESTIGATION INTO

HER E-MAIL SCANDAL.

UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE

PATRICK KENNEDY, AN ALLY

OF HILLARY CLINTON,

OFFERED THE F.B.I. A QUID

PRO QUO TO CHANGE THE

E-MAIL CLASSIFICATION SO

THAT IT WOULDN'T BE SEEN.

THE F.B.I. EVENTUALLY SAID

NO, AND THE F.B.I. AND

STATE DEPARTMENT DENY ANY

DEAL.

REPUBLICANS SAY THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION WAS WORKING

TO PROTECT CLINTON.

THIS IS WORSE THAN

WATERGATE, WHAT IS GOING

ON WITH THIS.

AND WHAT DOES SHE GET OUT

OF IT?

SHE GETS TO RUN FOR THE

PRESIDENCY OF THE UNITED

STATES.

EXPLAIN THAT.

EXPLAIN THAT.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

DONALD TRUMP'S WIFE,

MELANIA, IS SPEAKING OUT

ABOUT THE VIDEOTAPE OF

2005.

SHE TOLD CNN HER HUSBAND

WAS NOT THAT KIND OF MAN.

HE WAS LEADED ON --

EGGED ON FROM THE HOST TO

SAY DIRTY AND BAD STUFF.

Heather: AND NEW

CHARGES AGAINST THE MEDIA.

IT TURNS OUT THAT THE

OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF

DONATIONS FROM JOURNALISTS

HAVE GONE TO HILLARY

CLINTON.

A FEDERAL CAMPAIGN FINANCE

FILING SHOWS WORKING MEDIA

HAVE GIVEN $382,000 TO

CLINTON.

AND THEY GAVE JUST $14,000

TO TRUMP.

A NEW WikiLEAKS RELEASE

ALSO CONFIRMS CONCERNS

ABOUT MEDIA COLLUSION WITH

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

GLEN THRUSH, A

CORRESPONDENT WITH THE

WEBSITE POLTICO, E-MAILED

JOHN PODESTA, ASKING HIM

TO REVIEW A STORY BEFORE

IT WAS PUBLISHED.

SAYING, PLEASE DON'T SHARE

OR TELL ANYONE I DID THIS.

THE CAMPAIGN REVELATIONS

ARE JUST THE LATEST IN A

YEAR FILLED WITH THEM, AND

THEY COME WITH JUST THREE

WEEKS UNTIL THE ELECTION

AND ONE DAY UNTIL THE

FINAL DEBATE.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: YOU KNOW, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, DON'T YOU

GET HORRIFIED?

YOU WOULD THINK THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE -- RUSH

LIMBAUGH CALLS THEM THE

DRIVE BY, THE PEOPLE WHO

DON'T PAY MUCH ATTENTION.

BUT SURELY THERE HAS BEEN

SO MUCH THAT PEOPLE MUST

BE SICKENED.

THEY MUST SAY, WE'VE GOT

TO HAVE HONESTY IN OUR

SYSTEM.

AND TO HAVE A STATE

DEPARTMENT MAN OFFERING A

BRIBE ESSENTIALLY TO AN

F.B.I. AGENT TO CHANGE A

CLASSIFICATION ON A

SUBPOENAED DOCUMENT?

FOR THE AVERAGE PERSON,

THAT WOULD BE 20 YEARS IN

THE SLAMMER BIG TIME.

FOR HILLARY, IT IS A PASS.

HER PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING

TO DO IT.

THEY LIE AND THEY COLUDE

AND THEY WITHHOLD

EVIDENCE.

AND THEN YOU LOOK BACK TO

LOIS LERNER AND HER CROWD

AT THE I.R.S. -- FINALLY

IT LOOKS LIKE THE I.R.S.

IS CHANGING THINGS UNDER

PRESSURE FROM PEOPLE LIKE

THE AMERICAN ENERO.

AMERICAN CENTER FOR

LAW AND JUSTICE.

AND A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS

FINALLY OFFERED THEM TO

DEAL WITH THE TAX-EXEMPT

STATUS FROM CONSERVATIVE

GROUPS.

JOHN JESSUP THAS.

John: THE TAX AGENCY

HAS BEEN UNDER

INVESTIGATION FOR

TARGETING CONSERVATIVE

GROUPS AND HOLDING UP

THEIR APPLICATIONS, IN

SOME CASES, FOR YEARS.

THE I.R.S. MUST MAKE

DECISIONS ON THOSE

OUTSTANDING APPLICATIONS

BY NOVEMBER 11th.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR

LAW AND JUSTICE REPRESENTS

38 GROUPS SUING THE I.R.S.

JAY SEKULOW CALL THE

JUDGE'S ORDER A MAJOR

VICTORY, POINTING OUT IT

WILL BE SEVEN YEARS THIS

DECEMBER SINCE ONE OF ITS

CLIENTS HAVE SUBMITTED ITS

APPLICATION.

> IN IRAQ, KURDISH

FORCES PAUSED TODAY IN THE

NEW OFFENSIVE TO RETAKE

MOSUL FROM ISIS.

PESHMERGA FORCES NEEDED

ADDITIONAL TIME TO GAIN A

STRONGER HOLD ON NEARBY

VILLAGES THEY CAPTURED ON

MONDAY.

IT COMES ONE DAY AFTER

INTENSE FIGHTING,

INVOLVING HEAVY ARTILLERY

AND ISIS CAR BOMBS.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST ISIS

IS JUST THE START OF A

MUCH LARGER BATTLE OVER

CONTROL OF IRAQ'S SECOND

LARGEST CITY.

Chris: THE SOUNDS OF

BATTLE SURROUNDED MOSUL AS

IRAQI AND KURDISH FORCES

LAUNCH THEIR PUSH INTO THE

CITY.

KURDISH FIGHTERS HAVE

CAPTURED AT LEAST SEVEN

VILLAGES JUST OUTSIDE

MOSUL.

THE KURDISH PESHMERGA

SEEMS EAGER TO HELP FREE

THE CITY.

TODAY WE'RE GOING TO

FIGHT.

Chris: THE ENEMY HAS

CLEARLY SHOWN IT IS READY

TO DIE.

THIS ISIS SUICIDE BOMBER

BLEW HIMSELF UP AFTER

DRIVING INTO THIS IRAQI

TANK.

IRAQI AND KURDISH FORCES

ARE RECEIVING HELP FROM

THE 101 AIRBORNE AND U.S.

AIRSTRIKES.

U.S. COMMANDERS PLEDGE A

DIFFICULT BUT SUCCESSFUL

CONFLICT.

THIS MAY PROVE TO BE A

LONG AND TOUGH BATTLE, BUT

THE IRAQIS HAVE PREPARED

FOR IT.

AND WE WILL STAND BY THEM.

THE IRAQI SECURITY FORCES

AND THE COALITION ARE NOT

ONLY FIGHTING FOR THE

FUTURE OF IRAQ, WE ARE

FIGHTING TO ENSURE THE

SECURITY OF ALL OF OUR

NATIONS.

Chris: BUT THE

VARIOUS FORCES TRYING TO

CAPTURE MOSUL HOLD

DIFFERENT AGENDAS.

THAT RAISES THE QUESTION:

WHO CONTROLS MOSUL WHEN

THE BATTLE IS OVER?

THAT IS A GOOD

QUESTION.

THAT IS THE QUESTION: WHAT

HAPPENS AFTER THE FALL OF

MOSUL?

Chris: RETIRED U.S.

COLONEL RICHARD NAPP TOLD

CBN NEWS THAT THE MILITARY

CAMPAIGN IS JUST THE

BEGINNING.

THE CRITICAL PART IS

AFTERWARDS.

YOU CAN TAKE MOSUL

MOMENTARILY, THAT'S THE

EASIER PIECE IN MY VIEW.

IT IS THE PART ABOUT THE

POLITICAL SOLUTIONS

AFTERWARDS THAT NEED TO BE

MEANINGFUL.

Chris: WHILE THE

FUTURE OF MOSUL REMAINS

UNCLEAR, THE ISIS' DREAM

OF A CALIPHATE IS COME

CRUMBLING.

IT MEANS ISIS NEEDS A NEW

STORY LINE.

ACCORDING TO ISLAMIC

PROPHECY, DABIK WAS TO BE

THE END SITE.

John: THANKS, CHRIS.

PAT, SOME MAJOR SETBACKS

FOR ISIL.

Pat: IT'S ABOUT TIME.

THEY ONLY HAVE A FEW

HUNDRED LEFT IN MOSUL.

THEY BUGGED OUT OF THAT

CITY SOME MONTHS AGO, AND

THEY'RE LOCATING BACK INTO

SYRIA.

THE THING -- WHAT WE'RE

CONCERNED ABOUT, THOUGH,

IF THE GOVERNMENT OF IRAQ

TAKES OVER MOSUL, WHAT

THAT WILL BE CONCEIVED AS

IS A VICTORY FOR IRAN

BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE ARE

PRIMARY SHI'AS, AND NOW

YOU HAVE THE SHI'A-SUNNI

CONFLICT GOING ON.

> I REALLY THINK IRAQ

SHOULD BE TAKEN APART,

ACCORDING TO THE VARIOUS

INTERESTS.

THERE IS ONE GROUP, THE

KURDS, AND THEY DESERVE A

COUNTRY.

THE SUNNIS DESERVE AN EN

CLEAVENCLAVE THAT IS THEIRS,

AND THE SHI'AS DESERVE

WHATEVER THEY OUGHT TO

HAVE.

IRAQ IS A CREATURE NOW

PROBABLY OF THE BRITS,

PROBABLY SOMETHING WINSTON

CHURCHILL PUT TOGETHER

WHEN HE WAS HOME

SECRETARY.

I THINK IT IS TIME TO LET

IT COME APART.

THE SAME THING WITH SYRIA.

THAT WAS A CREATURE OF THE

FRENCH.

RIGHT NOW WE HAVE THE

ALAWITES, MAYBE 15% OF THE

TOTAL POPULATION

CONTROLLING THE REST OF

IT.

AND YOU HAVE BITTER

FIGHTING WITH THE SHI'AS

AND BITTER FIGHTING WITH

THE SUNNIS.

AND NOW THE RUSSIANS HAVE

COME IN.

WE HAVE ALLOWED RUSSIA TO

HAVE A MAJOR PRESENCE IN

THE MIDDLE EAST, WHICH

THEY DIDN'T HAVE BEFORE.

THAT IS THE LEGACY OF

BARACK OBAMA.

THAT'S WHERE IT CAME FROM.

AND WE ARE GOING TO BEAR

THE CONSEQUENCES.

AS THEY TALK NOW -- THEY

TALKED ABOUT THERMAL

NUCLEAR WAR, IF YOU CAN

IMAGINE ANYTHING AS

HORRIBLE AS THAT.

AND THE RUSSIANS ARE

RATTLING SABRES AND SAYING

WE WANT TO FORCE YOU TO DO

THIS, THAT, AND THE OTHER.

JOHN HAS MORE ON THAT.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS IN

MOSCOW SAY RUSSIA AND

SYRIA WILL STOP AIRSTRIKES

ON THE CITY OF ALEPPO.

RUSSIAN FORCES AND THE

SYRIAN ARMY PLAN TO

OBSERVE WHAT IS BEING

CALLED A HUMANITARIAN

PAUSE FOR EIGHT HOURS THIS

THURSDAY.

AT THAT TIME SYRIAN

REBELS, INCLUDING

AL-QAEDA MILITANTS, AS

WELL AS THE SICK AND THE

WOUNDED, WILL BE ALLOWED

TO LEAVE.

AS GEORGE THOMAS REPORTS,

THIS SERVES AS A REMINDER

OF RUSSIA'S GROWING

INFLUENCE IN THE REGION IN

JUST THE PAST COUPLE OF

YEARS.

George: THE MAYOR OF

ALEPPO SAYS WHAT IS HAPPEN

TO HIS BESIEGED CITY IS A

HOLOCAUST.

WE LIVE A DAILY

HOLOCAUST IN ALEPPO.

George: AT LEAST 400

PEOPLE, MAINLY SYRIANS,

HAVE DIED SINCE RUSSIAN

FORCES LAUNCHED AN ALL-OUT

OFFENSIVE TO RETAKE

CONTROL OF THE CITY LAST

MONTH.

THE U.S. HAS ACCUSED BOTH

COUNTRIES OF COMMITTING

WAR CRIMES.

BUT RUSSIA'S PRESIDENT

SHOT BACK, INSISTING HIS

FORCES ARE TARGETING

AL-QAEDA-LINKED MILITANTS

WHO ARE USING CIVILIANS AS

HUMAN SHIELDS.

Through Translator:

UNFORTUNATELY, WHENEVER

MILITARY OPERATIONS TAKE

PLACE, INNOCENT PEOPLE

SUFFER AND DIE.

BUT WE CANNOT ALLOW

TERRORISTS TO HIDE AMONG

CIVILIANS.

WE CANNOT ALLOW THEM TO

BLACKMAIL THE ENTIRE

WORLD, WHEN THEY TAKE

HOSTAGES AND BEHEAD

PEOPLE.

George: THE U.S. IS

WARNING IF THE BOMBARDMENT

DOESN'T STOP, ALEPPO WILL

BE COMPLETELY GONE BY

CHRISTMAS.

LET'S SAVE THE

POPULATION OF ALEPPO.

IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO

MAKE PEACE.

George: MEANWHILE,

RUSSIA'S INFLUENCE IN

SYRIA JUST GOT STRONGER.

THE KREMLIN APPROVED A

DEAL THAT KEEPS ITS FORCES

IN THE COUNTRY

INDEFINITELY.

STRRMT IT IS I Through Translator:

IT IS IN THE KEY INTEREST

OF SYRIA.

George: THEY HAVE

ALLOWED THE SYRIAN

PRESIDENT'S FORCES TO

REGAIN LOST TERRITORY.

THEY CLAIM IT HAS ALWAYS

BEEN ABOUT HELPING THEM

FIGHT AGAINST ISLAMIC

CRIMINAL FORCES.

THE KREMLIN HAS ALWAYS

INSISTED IT HAS WANTED TO

AVOID A LIBYA-LIKE

SCENARIO.

WHILE RUSSIA SAYS IT IS

FIGHTING ISLAMIC

TERRORISM, MOSCOW'S

DOMINANCE IN THE MIDDLE

EAST IS ON THE RISE.

TWO YEARS AGO, RUSSIA

BARELY HAD A MILITARY

PRESENCE IN THE REGION.

NOW EXPERTS SAY ITS

FIGHTER JETS AND MISSILES

ARE FIGHTING OVER SYRIAN,

IRANIAN AIR SPACE.

John: THANKS, GEORGE.

HERE AT HOME, HURRICANE

MATTHEW WAS THE FIRST

MAJOR HURRICANE TO HIT

AMERICA IN A DECADE.

AS ANDREW KNOX REPORTS,

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

OFFER MUCH-NEEDED HELP.

Reporter: IN

FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH

CAROLINA, SUSAN JOHNSON

STRUGGLES TO PUT HER LIFE

BACK TOGETHER AFTER THE

TERRIFYING ORDEAL.

I STARTED TO PANIC, AND

MY HUSBAND WAS TRYING TO

CALM ME DOWN.

BECAUSE AT THAT TIME I

THOUGHT WE SHOULD HAVE

GONE TO THE EVACUATION

CENTER, BUT IT WAS TOO

LATE.

Reporter: JUST TO

GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF THE

POWER OF HURRICANE MATTHEW

IN THIS COMMUNITY, BEHIND

THE JOHNSON'S HOUSE IS

THIS CREEK, AT LEAST

20 FEET BELOW ME.

BUT THE WATER LEVEL EASILY

WOULD RISE OVER MY HEAD,

UP THESE PATIO STEPS.

THE JOHNSON'S HOME IS

25 FEET TO MY RIGHT.

THE WATER LINE ON THEIR

HOME AFTER THE STORM WAS

FOUR FEET HIGH.

WE JUST TOTALLY DID NOT

EXPECT THAT.

TO BE SITTING IN YOUR

HOUSE AT NIGHT, AND WATER

COMING FROM THE FLOOR UP.

Reporter: THE DAMAGE

LEFT BY THE FLOODWATERS

WAS OVERWHELMING.

MY HUSBAND AND I WERE

TURNING IN CIRCLES,

BASICALLY.

WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO

NEXT.

I TURNED MY HEAD, AND

THESE TWO COME WALKING UP,

AND THEY TELL ME WHERE

THEY'RE FROM.

AND I TOLD THEM AND I

SAID, IT IS JUST A

BLESSING BECAUSE I WATCH

PAT ROBERTSON EVERY DAY

AND PRAY WITH THEM.

AND I SEE "OPERATION

BLESSING."

WHEN I HEARD SUSAN'S

STORY, SHE IS LEGALLY

BLIND.

HER AND HER HUSBAND ARE

OLDER AND THEY'RE BY

THEMSELVES.

THEY NEED PEOPLE TO COME

HELP THEM.

Reporter: "OPERATION

BLESSING" WAS ABLE TO HELP

THE JOHNSONS BEGIN THE

LONG ROAD TO RECOVERY.

THE LORD IS GOOD.

HE ALWAYS PROVIDES.

HE HAS A PLAN.

THERE IS A PLAN IN THIS.

THIS JUST MEANS THE WORLD

TO ME.

John: PAT, PEOPLE

LIKE THE JOHNSONS AND MANY

OTHERS WILL NEED HELP FOR

QUITE SOME TIME.

Pat: IT IS A THRILL

TO ME THAT WE CAN HELP

PEOPLE LIKE THAT.

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT LADY,

BUT GOD BLESS HER.

AND THE FACT SHE IS ONE OF

OUR VIEWERS AND WE HAVE

RELIEF COMING TO HER

HOME -- WE DO WHAT WE CAN.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

PROBLEMS IN OUR WORLD, AND

WE ARE THERE TO HELP WHERE

WE CAN.

SO IF YOU WANT TO

PARTICIPATE -- YOU NEVER

KNOW WHAT LIFE YOU MAY

SAVE.

AND THE ADDRESS IS EASY TO

REMEMBER.

"OPERATION BLESSING," AND

THE NUMBER TO CALL IS

1-800-700-7000.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com AND DISASTER

RELIEF.

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS

WE ARE DOING.

SO IF YOU WANT TO HELP,

WE'RE DOING IT.

BUT, FOLKS, THIS WORLD IS

IN CHAOS.

AND WE NEED THE PRAYER OF

GOD'S PEOPLE LIKE NEVER

BEFORE.

WE NEED PRAYER FOR THIS

NATION.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

GOD IS DOING SOMETHING.

THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS

MOVING UPON THIS WORLD.

BUT IT'S RIGHT NOW GOING

THROUGH A PERIOD OF CHAOS.

AND THE PRINCIPLE ARBITER

OF THE DIFFICULTIES IN OUR

WORLD HAS BEEN THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA, BUT NOW

WE ARE IN THE HANDS OF

PEOPLE WHO DON'T THINK

THAT'S IMPORTANT.

WELL, I DO.

AND I KNOW MANY OF YOU DO

AS WELL.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

THEY'RE GETTING A BIBLE

DEGREE BEHIND BARS.

SO THE IDEA IS

BASICALLY TO CHANGE THE

CULTURE BY CHANGING THE

HEART WITH THE MESSAGE OF

THE GOSPEL.

Terry: AND IT'S HAD

SOME AMAZING RESULTS IN

OTHER PRISONS AS WELL.

YOU'LL SEE IT IN ACTION,

WHEN WE RETURN.

Pat: WELL, ONE OF THE

MOST EXCITING PARTS OF MY

BROADCAST EXPERIENCE TOOK

PLACE IN A MAXIMUM

SECURITY PRISON IN

RAYFORD, FLORIDA.

AND WE DID A SHOW CALLED

"MAXIMUM SECURITY."

IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE.

POWERFUL.

WELL, THEY ARE MAXIMUM

SECURITY INMATES, AND

THEY'RE EARNING,

INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH,

BIBLE DEGREES BEHIND BARS.

AND THAT'S THE RESULT OF A

UNIQUE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN

TEXAS PRISONS AND

SOUTHWESTERN BAPTIST

THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY.

GET THAT.

AND CHARLENE AARON

DISCOVERED THE GOAL IS TO

REFORM THE NATION'S

BIGGEST PRISON SYSTEM BY

SOFTENING HAR HARDENED

CRIMINALS ONE HEART AT A

TIME.

Charlene: 30 MILES

OUT OF HOUSTON, DARINGTON

PRISON HOUSES SOME OF THE

MAXIMUM OFFENDERS.

THIS IS A MAXIMUM

PRISON.

WE HAVE ALL LEVELS HERE AT

THIS FACILITY.

Charlene: BUT BEHIND

THESE WALLS, HARD-CORE

CRIMINALS ARE TRANSFORMED

INTO MESSENGERS OF HOPE.

THANKS TO A PROGRAM

OFFERED BY SOUTHWESTERN

BAPTIST SEMINARY.

DESIGNED FOR

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS TO

RECEIVE A BIBLE COLLEGE

DEGREE, TO PREPARE THEM

FOR PASTORIAL MINISTRY.

Charlene: THE INMATES

TAKE GENERAL EDUCATION

COURSES, INCLUDING

ENGLISH, MATH, AND

SCIENCE.

THEN COMES TWO YEARS OF

THEATERLOGICATHEOLOGICAL TRAINING.

THE IDEA CAME IN 2010,

WHEN DAN PATRICK AND

SENATOR JOHN WHITMIRE

VISITED LOUISIANA'S ANGOLA

PRISON.

ANGOLA WAS THE

BLOODIEST PRISON IN

AMERICA.

SINCE THE BIBLE STUDY HAS

COME THERE, THEY REDUCED

THEIR CRIME INSIDE THE

PRISON BY 72%.

THE IDEA IS TO CHANGE THE

CULTURE BY CHANGING THE

HEART WITH THE MESSAGE OF

THE GOSPEL.

Charlene: SERVING A

LIFE SENTENCE, 54-YEAR-OLD

TROOP FOSTER FOUND HIS

LIFE RADICALLY TRANSFORMED

AFTER TIME IN SOLITARY

CONFINEMENT.

I WAS THINKING ABOUT

SUICIDE, I WAS THINKING

ABOUT ENDING MY LIFE, BUT

I REMEMBERED THE JESUS

FROM MY CHILDHOOD.

I GOT DOWN ON MY KNEES AND

I CRIED OUT TO GOD,

PLEASE, IF YOU'RE HERE,

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

CARRY ME.

FROM THAT POINT FORWARD,

HE REVEALED HIMSELF TO ME.

Reporter: FOSTER, A

FORMER GANG MEMBER, BECAME

ONE OF THE SEMINARY'S

FIRST GRADUATES.

HE NOW MINISTERS TO OTHER

CRIMINALS.

I WAS SHARING MY

TESTIMONY WITH THE MEN

BACK THERE.

SOME OF THEM WERE REAL

STANDOFF-ISH AT FIRST, BUT

WHEN I EXPLAINED TO THEM

I'VE BEEN WHERE YOU'RE AT,

AND I DO IT IN LOVE.

Charlene: BRANDON

WARREN SERVES AS A

SEMINARY PROFESSOR.

THE DEMOGRAPHIC WE

HAVE -- SOME OF THESE

GUYS, IT HAS BEEN 20 YEARS

SINCE THEY WERE IN SCHOOL.

AND WHEN THEY WERE IN

SCHOOL, IT WASN'T THAT

GREAT OF AN EDUCATION.

I TEACH HOW TO WRITE A

PAPER, AND STUDY HABITS,

TO TRY TO BRIDGE THAT GAP.

Charlene: WHILE

ACADEMICS ARE THE MAJOR

FOCUS OF THE PROGRAM, IT

IS THE SPIRITUAL

TRANSFORMATION THAT MAKES

ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE.

OUR PURPOSE IS TO NOT

ONLY GIVE THEM A

THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION, BUT

TO PASS ON FROM FACULTY

MEMBER TO STUDENT OUR

HEART FOR MINISTRY, FOR

THE BIBLE, FOR THE LOVE OF

JESUS, AND FOR THE LOVE OF

THEIR INMATES.

Charlene: INMATE

VONDRA CACHE IS SERVING A

45-YEAR SENTENCE.

DESPITE NOT BEING VERY

RELIGIOUS, HE FELT DRAWN

TO THE PROGRAM.

I WAS SEARCHING.

I HAD DOUBTS ABOUT

CHRISTIANITY BEFORE I CAME

TO THE PROGRAM.

I HAD DOUBTS ABOUT

RELIGION, PERIOD.

BUT WHEN I CAME TO THE

PROGRAM, THE LOVE THAT THE

PROFESSORS SHOWED FOR ME,

THE CARE AND THE PATIENCE

THEY SHOWED, AND NOT ONLY

THEM, BUT ALSO THE OTHER

STUDENTS.

Charlene: THAT LOVE

LED HIM TO A MORE INTIMATE

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

AND HE NOW SHARES THE HOPE

HE FOUND WITH OTHERS.

BEING ABLE TO DIALOGUE

WITH ME ON A SPIRITUAL

LEVEL, TALK WITH THEM IN

BIBLE STUDIES, TALK WITH

THEM IN PRAYER CIRCLES,

THAT IS REAWARDING IN AND

OF ITSELF.

Charlene: WARREN, WHO

ONCE SERVED TIME, SAYS THE

PROGRAM IS FAR-REACHING.

STUDENTS ARE ASKING

THEM TO PRAY FOR THEM, OR

THEY HAVE SOME QUESTION

ABOUT THE BIBLE OR THE

SCRIPTURE, AND THAT

HAPPENS FROM THE

BEGINNING.

IT HELPS CALM DOWN WHAT

IS GOING ON HERE AT THIS

FACILITY.

Charlene: GRADUATES

ARE DISPATCHED TO PRISONS

ACROSS TEXAS AND LIVE

AMONG THE GENERAL

POPULATION, WHERE THEY

HOPE TO ENCOURAGE FELLOW

INMATES TO CHANGE THEIR

WAYS.

FOSTER, WHO WILL BE ALMOST

80 BEFORE HE IS ELIGIBLE

FOR PAROLE, SAYS IT IS HIS

LIFE'S PURPOSE TO SERVE

OTHERS.

WHETHER IN OR OUTSIDE

PRISON WALLS.

SOME PEOPLE GRADUATE

COLLEGE AND SEMINARY AND

THEY GO TO NORTH AFRICA OR

CZECHOSLOVAKIA OR RUSSIA

FOR THEIR MISSION FIELD.

THIS IS MY MISSION FIELD.

AND IT IS A MISSION FIELD

AND I'VE ALREADY ADAPTED

TO THE CULTURE HERE.

I KNOW THE LANGUAGE.

AND GOD'S CALLED ME HERE.

*

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS, TEXAS.

Pat: WHAT A WONDERFUL

THING.

I'LL TELL YOU, THAT'S --

I'VE BEEN IN A LOT OF

THOSE PRISONS -- WELL, A

NUMBER OF THEM.

WE'VE HAD LITERACY

PROGRAMS IN MAYBE

ANGOLA -- I'M NOT SURE.

BUT WE'VE SEEN THEM, AND

YOU LOVE THOSE GUYS.

SOMETIMES THEY'VE DONE ONE

BAD THING, AND THEY WIND

UP GETTING 20, 30 YEARS.

I THINK THE WHOLE PRISON

THING HAS GOT TO BE

REFORMED.

WE NEED TO HAVE A WHOLE

NEW CONCEPT OF WHAT WE DO

WITH PEOPLE WHO BREAK

LAWS.

PUTTING SOMEBODY IN LOCKUP

FOR 40, 50 YEARS, HOW DOES

THAT HELP ANYBODY?

THERE IS SOMETHING WE'VE

GOT TO DO THAT IS

DIFFERENT.

I DON'T THINK WE'VE COME

TO THE SOLUTION WE NEED

YET.

THIS IS THE FIRST STEP.

I CONGRATULATE THE

SOUTHWESTERN BIBLE

SEMINARY -- SOUTHWESTERN

BAPTIST SEMINARY FOR WHAT

THEY'RE DOING.

Terry: AND THEN THEY

NEED JOBS WHEN THEY'RE

RELEASED.

THAT'S ANOTHER AREA THAT

NEEDS ADDRESSING.

Pat: THEY NEED

SOMEBODY TO GO ALONGSIDE

AND HELP THEM, A MENTOR OR

A FRIEND.

Terry: A CHURCH.

> UP NEXT, A MOM WHO

SUFFERED FROM CRIPPLING

MIGRAINES FOR 10 YEARS.

I WOULD HAVE LITTLE

FLASHES OF LIGHT.

AND I COULDN'T SEE.

MINE MIMICS STROKES, AND

SO I COULDN'T COMMUNICATE.

AND I WOULD HAVE

PARALYSIS,

IN PART OF MY BODY FOR A

FEW MINUTES.

Terry: SEE HOW SHE

WAS SUPERNATURALLY HEALED

WHILE SHE WAS WATCHING TV.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

A LITTLE BIT OF A NEWS

ITEM, BY THE WAY: DONALD

TRUMP'S CAMPAIGN HAS

NOTIFIED REGENT UNIVERSITY

THEY WOULD LIKE TO HOLD A

RALLY ON THE CAMPUS OF

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

Terry: WHEN IS THAT

HAPPENING?

Pat: SATURDAY.

THIS SATURDAY AT 3 p.m.

AND EVERYBODY IS INVITED.

THE PUBLIC IS INVITED.

IT WILL BE A BIG RALLY.

Terry: I GUESS SO.

TIMELY.

Pat: WELL, I WOULD

THINK.

IT WOULD BE BETTER TO DO

IT NOW THAN WAIT A COUPLE

OF WEEKS.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: I THINK IT MAY

BE INTERESTING.

IT IS AMAZING.

THESE UNIVERSITIES HAVE

HELD THESE DEBATES,

HOFSTRA COLLEGE AND ST.

LOUIS UNIVERSITY.

I THINK IT IS A NICE THING

FOR COLLEGES TO EXPOSE

THEIR STUDENTS THE

POLITICAL THINKING OF THE

WORLD THEY LIVE IN.

EVERYBODY IS INVITED.

FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND,

EVERYBODY.

3:00 ON SATURDAY.

Terry: BE THERE ARE

BE SQUARE.

Pat: IT'S OUTSIDE.

Terry: THAT'S NICE.

Pat: SO PLENTY OF

ROOM FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE.

Terry: GREAT.

Pat: WELL, FOR 10

YEARS TERRY VARTIMER LIVED

WITH EXCRUCIATING

MIGRAINES.

THAT'S 10 YEARS OF PAIN,

10 YEARS OF FEAR, 10 YEARS

OF FEELING AS IF SHE WAS

GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS

OF LIFE.

THEN ONE NIGHT TERRY WAS

MIRACULOUSLY HEALED, RIGHT

IN HER HOME.

THE MIGRAINES VANISHED.

THE PAIN WOULD BE

BEHIND MY EYES AND IT

WOULD BE JUST REALLY

SEVERE, LIKE A CLENCHING

PAIN.

IT WOULD JUST BE HARD TO

CONCENTRATE AND HARD TO

JUST DO MY NORMAL,

EVERYDAY THING.

Reporter: FOR 10

YEARS, TERRY VARTIMER

SUFFERED FROM WEEKLY

HEADACHES THAT LASTED UP

TO 12 HOURS AT A TIME.

SOMETIMES I WOULD BE

NAUSEOUS.

AND IT JUST AFFECTED

EVERYTHING.

AT THE TIME, I HAD THREE

KIDS.

I WAS HOME-SCHOOLING, AND

YOU JUST HAVE TO GET UP

AND KEEP GOING.

Reporter: SOMETIMES

THE HEADACHES BECAME

DEBILITATING HEIG GRAINS.

>MIGRAINES.

THE MIGRAINES I WOULD

GET WAS CALLED LIKE THE

CLASSICAL AURA.

THERE WERE PARTS OF MY

VISION FIELD I COULDN'T

SEE.

MINE MIMICKED STROKES, SO

I COULDN'T COMMUNICATE AND

I WOULD HAVE PARAYLSIS IN

PART OF MY BODY FOR A FEW

MINUTES.

Reporter: TERRY'S

DOCTOR WASN'T ABLE TO

DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF HER

HEADACHES.

NOBODY EVER FOUND

ANYTHING.

NONE OF THE MEDICATION

EVER REALLY WORKED, SO I

GAVE UP ON THAT.

A LOT OF TIMES I FELT LIKE

I WAS ON THE SIDELINES,

YOU KNOW, OF LIFE.

I WOULD KIND OF GO THROUGH

THE MOTIONS OF THINGS, BUT

IT WAS JUST HARD TO BE

FULLY ENGAGED.

Reporter: DESPERATE

FOR RELIEF, TERRY STUDIED

THE BIBLE TO LEARN ABOUT

HEALING.

I LEARNED A LOT MORE

ABOUT THE HEALING

SCRIPTURES AND THAT JESUS

PAID FOR THAT, ALSO, ON

THE CROSS.

AND I JUST LEARNED A LOT

OF GOD'S WORD, BUT ALSO

JUST COMFORT AND PRESSING

INTO GOD.

YOU KNOW, DURING THE HARD

TIMES.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

TERRY'S HEADACHES

PERSISTED, SHE KEPT

PRAYING AND BELIEVING FOR

A MIRACLE.

ONE NIGHT SHE AND HER

HUSBAND TURNED ON THE

TELEVISION.

I HAD A HEADACHE AT THE

TIME.

IT WAS REALLY SEVERE, AND

PROBABLY ONE OF THE

REASONS I COULDN'T SLEEP.

AND SO WE WERE IN THE BED,

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND...

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE EXCRUCIATING

HEADACHES.

I DON'T KNOW IF THEY'D BE

DIAGNOSED AS MIGRAINES,

BUT THE PAIN IS, LIKE,

RIGHT BEHIND YOUR EYES.

AND IT IS RECURRING.

GOD IS HEALING THAT RIGHT

NOW.

THE PAIN IS GONE, AND

YOU'LL NOT HAVE THEM

AGAIN.

I THOUGHT, OKAY, THIS

IS ME.

ESPECIALLY WHEN SHE GAVE

THE WORD ABOUT THE

MIGRAINES, TOO, BECAUSE

THAT WAS EXTRA

CONFIRMATION IT WAS ME.

THE NEXT DAY IT WAS HARDLY

ANYTHING AT ALL, BUT STILL

A LITTLE RESIDUAL.

AND THEN AFTER THAT, I

HAVEN'T HAD ANY PAIN

SINCE.

IT WAS ALMOST, LIKE, WOW,

IT IS HERE, FINALLY, AFTER

ALL OF THIS TIME.

IT WAS JUST A BLESSING TO

NOT HAVE TO WORRY, YOU

KNOW, AM I GOING TO GET UP

TOMORROW WITH A HEADACHE?

NO.

Terry: TERRY'S FAITH

IS STRONGER THAN EVER, AND

SHE ENCOURAGES OTHERS TO

KEEP TRUSTING GOD IN THE

MIDST OF TRIAL.

ONE OF HIS NAMES IS

ELROY, THE GOD WHO SEES

ME.

AND THAT'S WHAT I KEPT

THINKING, WAS, YOU KNOW,

THANK YOU THAT YOU SEE ME.

AND HE IS FAITHFUL.

AND HE WILL DO WHAT HE

PROMISES.

Pat: 10 YEARS OF

HORROR.

ISN'T THAT FANTASTIC?

Terry: YEAH.

Pat: YOU'VE HAD QUITE

A ROW.

THIS IS SYDNEY OF AURORA,

COLORADO, WHO HAD BEEN

BATTLING WITH BLISTERS WHO

WAS UNDER HIS LEFT EYELID.

HE HAD BEEN TO SEVERAL

DOCTORS, AND NOTHING WAS

WORKING.

ONE DAY HE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM AND YOU SAID,

QUOTE,"YOU HAVE THE

RECURRING PROBLEM OF

BLISTERS UNDER THE LIDS OF

YOUR EYES."

SIDNEY COULDN'T BELIEVE

IT.

HE SAID IT IS THE EXACT

PROBLEM.

AND WITHIN A DAY, THE

BLISTERS CAN GONE AND THEY

HAVEN'T RETURNED SINCE.

Terry: ISN'T THAT

WONDERFUL.

I AM THE GOD WHO SEES YOU.

THIS IS ANTHONY WHO LIVES

IN PENNSYLVANIA, AND HE

SUFFERED WITH SEVERE BACK

PAIN.

HE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM WHEN A STORY AIRED

ABOUT A WOMAN WHO WAS

HEALED OF THE SAME THING

HE HAD.

AND PAT, YOU GAVE THE

WORD, AND HE WAS HEALED OF

BACK PAIN.

Pat: GOD SAID, LET

THERE BE LIGHT.

GOD SAID, LET THE EARTH

COME FORTHWITH ANIMALS AND

SO FORTH.

GOD SPOKE IT AND IT CAME

INTO BEING.

GOD, THROUGH HIS SPIRIT,

WILL PUT INTO THE MOUTH OF

PEOPLE -- NOT JUST PEOPLE

ON TELEVISION, BUT PEOPLE

WHO LOVE HIM ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

AS YOU SPEAK THE WORD, THE

POWER OF GOD IS PRESENT TO

BRING FORTH MIRACLES.

NOW THAT'S WHAT WE WANT TO

SEE.

BEFORE WE PRAY FOR

EVERYBODY -- PROBABLY, AND

MY OPINION, THE MOST

OUTSTANDING EVI EVANGELIST IN

THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD

IS MY FRIEND, RIN, RHINEHART

BUNKY.

HE HAS A TUMOR IN HIS

THROAT, AND HE IS GOING

INTO SURGERY TODAY.

HE MAY HAVE ALREADY HAD

THE SURGERY, OR HE'S IN

THE PROCESS OF HAVING IT.

I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT

THE TIMEFRAME IS.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

HIM AND PRAY FOR YOU.

GOD IS ABLE.

THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD.

WHETHER IT IS A BACK

PROBLEM OR FIBROMYALGIA,

OR WHATEVER NASTY THING

YOU HAVE IN YOUR BODY, GOD

CAN AND WILL DO IT.

WITH HIM, NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS AND BELIEVE GOD

FOR YOU.

ALL WE SAY IS, WOULD YOU

PLEASE BELIEVE GOD WITH

US, AND ACCEPT WHAT HE IS

GOING TO DO FOR YOU TODAY.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST.

WE BELIEVE GOD.

WE TESTIFY THAT WE BELIEVE

IN YOUR POWER.

WE'VE SEEN IT TIME AND

TIME AND TIME AGAIN, WHERE

YOU HAVE REACHED OUT AND

TOUCHED PEOPLE IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

SOMEBODY HAS -- IT'S LIKE

A TWISTED INTESTINE, AND

THEY'RE AFRAID OF

GANGRENE.

THIS THING IS GOING TO DO

A MIRACLE RIGHT NOW, AND

IT'S GOING TO OPEN UP AND

RELEASE, AND EVERYTHING IS

GOING TO BE ABSOLUTELY

PERFECT.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A CONDITION IN

YOUR THROALT.

I'THROAT.

I'M NOT SURE WHAT IT IS OR

HOW LONG YOU'VE HAD IT.

BUT WHEN YOU SWALLOW, IT

IS LIKE RAZOR BLADES IN

YOUR THROAT.

IT MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO

EAT.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW.

YOU'LL FEEL A WARMTH.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

Pat: A WOMAN HAS A

SLOUGHING IN HER LEFT

BREAST AND IT IS

MALIGNANT.

RIGHT NOW YOU'LL FEEL LIKE

HEAT POWERING THROUGH AND

YOU'RE COMPLETELY HEALED.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE

WITH INTESTINAL

CONDITIONS, AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU TODAY.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

Pat: THERE IS SO MUCH

FIGHTING -- THERE ARE

FAMILIES THAT ARE FIGHTING

EACH OTHER.

AND PAUL, MARY, YOU'RE

FIGHTING.

AND GOD IS GOING TO GIVE

YOU HARMONY AT HOME.

ALL OF A SUDDEN PEACE IS

GOING TO COME IN.

THERE WILL BE FORGIVENESS.

AND THERE WILL BE LOVE.

AND THERE WILL BE HARMONY.

BECAUSE THE LORD IS A GOD

OF PEACE AND LOVE AND

RIGHRIGHTEOUSNESS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, WE

SPEAK PEACE ON TROUBLED

FAMILIES ALL OVER THIS

WORLD.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU'VE BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT

AND YOU HAVE AN INFECTED

FEMUR, BUT GOD IS HEALING

THAT FOR YOU AND YOU'RE

GOING TO BE PERFECTLY

WHOLE.

Pat: AND GOD, WE PRAY

FOR THIS NATION.

AS WE COME INTO THE LAST

FEW DAYS OF A GREAT

ELECTION, LORD, HAVE YOUR

WILL.

AMEN, AND AMEN.

IF YOU'VE GOT FURTHER NEED

FOR PRAYER, WE'VE GOT

PEOPLE AT THE TELEPHONE.

WE'VE GOT A GUY WHO IS SO

SMART, AND HE GOT A GOOD

NUMBER.

Terry: HE GOT A GOOD

ONE.

Pat: 1-800-700-7000.

IT IS TOLL-FREE AND IT

DOESN'T COST ANYTHING.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

ONE FILM-MAKER TAKES US

INSIDE THE NEW DOCUMENTARY

"LOST KITES."

THAT'S NEXT.

Charlene: AN AMERICAN

CHRISTIAN AID WORKER WAS

KIDNAPPED ON SATURDAY IN

AFRICA.

AUTHORITIES SAY GUNMAN

RAIDED HIS HOME, KILLING

HIS TWO GUARDS AND

SPARKING PANIC.

HE IS KNOWN FOR WORKING

WITH WIWHAM AND SPREADING

THE GOSPEL.

al-QAEDA AND GANGS

FREQUENTLY TARGET

WESTERNERS IN THE AREA AND

DEMAND MIX OF SUN AND

CLOUD OF DOLLARMILLIONS OF DOLLARSFOR THEI R RELEASE.

> UNDER A LAW, PRO-LIFE

CENTERS MUST DIRECT THEIR

CLIENTS TO ABORTION

CLINICS IN THE AREA.

CRITICS SAY THE MEASURE IS

A CLEAR VIOLATION OF

FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

AND CHRISTIAN LEADER AND

PSYCHOLOGIST DR. JAMES

DOBSON IS CALLING FOR

CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AGAINST

THE LAW.

HE SAYS, "I HAVE A SIMPLE

WORD OF ADVICE TO THOSE

PASTORS, PRIESTS, AND

OTHERS, WHO RUN CALIFORNIA

CRISIS PREGNANCY CENTERS,

IF CALIFORNIA ATTEMPTS TO

ENFORCE THIS LAW, DO NOT

COMPLY.

LET THEM PUT YOU IN JAIL."

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THISCH

Terry: WELL, ACROSS

THE WORLD, THERE ARE EIGHT

TO 10 MILLION CHILDREN

LIVING IN ORPHANAGES, AND

MORE THAN 10 TIMES THAT

LIVING ON THE STREETS.

THAT'S WHAT A YOUNG

FILM-MAKER TOOK TWO YEARS

PUTTING TOGETHER A

DOCUMENTARY.

THEY WANTED TO SHOW WHAT

LIFE WAS LIKE FOR THE

MODERN DAY ORPHAN, AND

HELP GET THEM INTO THE

FAMILIES THEY NEED AND

DESERVE.

I SEE CHILDREN LIKE I

SEE KITES, BEAUTIFUL AND

COLORFUL, TETHERED BY A

FINE LINE OF GUIDANCE.

GO ON, BREATHE.

BUT THEY CAN SLIP THROUGH

OR FINGERS.

HOW QUICKLY.

THIS IS THE STORY OF THE

LOST KITES.

Terry: JOINING US NOW

IS THE SCREENWRITER FOR

"LOST KITES," AND THE HEAD

OF RESEARCH AND WRITING

FOR GLOBAL BREAKTHROUGH,

CASEY.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

THANK YOU.

Terry: TALK A LITTLE

ABOUT GLOBAL BREAKTHROUGH

AND WHAT THE INSPIRATION

BEHIND "LOST KITES" IS ALL

ABOUT.

GLOBAL BREAKTHROUGH WAS

KIND OF MY FER FIRST

EXPERIENCE OF HOW WE COULD

PRAY.

AND THAT LED ME TO "YOUTH

WITH A MISSION."

AND THEY'RE THE ONES I

WORKED DIRECTLY WITH TO

MAKE THE FILM.

Terry: WHEN PEOPLE

SEE "LOST KITES" --

BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO

TELL THEM HOW THEY CAN DO

THAT IN A FEW MINUTES, BUT

WHAT DO YOU WANT THEM TO

COME AWAY WITH?

MY BIGGEST TAKE-AWAY

FROM MAKING THIS FILM IS

THAT THERE IS HOPE THAT

FAMILY RESTORATION CAN

HAPPEN ALL OVER THE GLOBE,

THAT CHILDREN ACTUALLY CAN

BE WITH FAMILY.

THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE AN

ORPHANAGE.

THAT'S NOT THE ONLY

ANSWER.

AND IT WAS -- FOR ME, IT

WAS THE MORE COUNTRIES I

TRAVELLED TO, THE MORE

HOPE I HAD THAT ACTUALLY

GOD CAN DO THIS AND WE CAN

BE A PART OF IT.

Terry: THERE IS

ACTUALLY A HUGE MOVEMENT

TOWARDS THAT NOW.

I MEAN, WE FIRST MET AT

"WORLD WITHOUT ORPHANS" IN

THAILAND SOME TIME AGO,

WHERE WE ALL WATCHED THIS

FILM.

YOU KNOW, THERE IS A

MOVEMENT TOWARDS PUTTING

CHILDREN IN FAMILIES OR

FAMILY SETTINGS.

HOW WOULD YOU SAY

ORPHANAGES TODAY DIFFER

FROM THE KIND OF

ORPHANAGES WE MIGHT HAVE

IN OUR MIND THAT EXISTED

EVEN 10, 20 YEARS AGO.

A LOT OF WHAT WE SAW IS

THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE

CHILDREN WITHIN THE

ORPHANAGES ACTUALLY HAVE A

NOMOM OR A DAD.

86% HAVE A MOM OR A DAD.

SO WE WOULD GO TO ALL OF

THESE ORPHANAGES AND WE

WOULD SAY, IF YOU HAVE A

MOM OR A DAD, WHY AREN'T

YOU WITH THEM?

AND THEN WE STARTED TO

UNCOVER THAT POVERTY IS

THE NUMBER ONE REASON.

IT IS A LOT OF SINGLE

MOMS.

THEY SHOW UP AT THE

ORPHANAGE AND SAY, I CAN'T

TAKE CARE OF MY CHILD,

COULD YOU?

SO NOW WE'RE LOOKING AT A

CHANGE, A SHIFT FROM ONE

PERSON TAKING CARE OF MANY

CHILDREN, TO SOCIAL

WORKERS HELPING THOSE

FAMILIES STAY TOGETHER AND

STAY ON THEIR FEET AND BE

ABLE TO KEEP THEIR

CHILDREN.

Terry: YOU, IN "LOST

KITES," FOLLOW THREE

CHILDREN THROUGH A SERIES

OF -- A PERIOD OF TIME.

TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT

EACH OF THEM.

SUNJOY, WHO IS HE?

SUNJOY WAS A STREET BOY

IN INDIA.

HE WAS SO UNIQUE IN THAT

HE WAS ACTUALLY SAVING

MONEY, WHICH IS VERY RARE

FOR A STREET CHILD.

THE MONEY GETS CUT OUT OF

YOUR POCKET AT NIGHT IF

YOU TRY TO SAVE IT.

HIS GOAL WAS TO GET OFF OF

THE STREET.

HE WANTED TO START A SMALL

BUSINESS.

IN THE MIDDLE OF FILMING,

HE ENDED UP RUNNING AWAY

FROM US.

AND IT BEGAN A SURGE FOR

SUNJOY IN THE MIDST.

Terry: IT'S A SEA.

IT'S A SEA.

AND HE IS ACCOUNTABLE TO

NO ONE.

NORMALLY WITH A CHILD, THE

TEACHER KNOWS WHERE THEY

ARE, THE MOM KNOWS WHERE

THEY ARE.

Terry: HOW OLD IS HE?

15.

Terry: HE DOESN'T

LOOK 15.

AND HE HAD BEEN ON THE

STREET FOR A LONG TIME.

THAT WAS SUNJOY'S STORY.

AND WARRICK, HE IS A

17-YEAR-OLD IN BRAZIL.

HE WAS LIVING IN AN

ORPHANAGE, AND WHEN HE WAS

18, HE KNEW HE WOULD HAVE

TO GRADUATE OUT.

ONE OPTION WAS TO CAN'T CONTINUE

WORKING AT THE FACTORY,

WHERE HE WAS AT.

AND HE WAS REALLY GOOD AT

SOCCER.

SO THE PROFESSIONAL CITY

TEAM INVITED HIM TO COME

TRY OUT.

SO FOR WARRICK, THIS WAS

THE CHANCE OF A DREAM.

AND HIS GOAL WAS TO MAKE

THE TEAM AND GET HIS

BROTHER OUT OF THE

ORPHANAGE, TOO.

SO WE FOLLOWED HIM THROUGH

TRAINING.

AND KAMELA IS A 2 AND A

HALF-YEAR-OLD IN CHINA.

SHE WAS ABANDONED AS A

BABY.

SHE HAD A HOLE IN HER

HEART.

LOCAL CHRISTIANS TOOK HER

IN, BUT THEY DIDN'T HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY FOR THE

SURGERY.

THE SURGERY IN ITSELF

WOULD BE AN EXPERIMENT, SO

THEY WERE TRYING TO FIND A

HOSPITAL THAT WOULD DO IT,

AND THEY WERE WILLING TO

SELL THEIR HOUSE, THEIR

CAR, ANYTHING, IN ORDER TO

GET CARMELA INTO SURGERY.

Terry: THAT'S WHAT IS

THE NEED, FOR SOMEONE

WILLING TO STEP UP AND TO

SACRIFICIALLY LOVE AND GO

AND DO -- HOW CAN PEOPLE

HELP BECAUSE THIS WHOLE

CONCEPT OF PUTTING

CHILDREN IN FAMILIES ISN'T

SOMETHING NEW.

IT IS A GOD IDEA, I PUT

THE CHILDREN IN FAMILIES.

HOW CAN WE HELP FOSTER

THIS IDEA OF CHILDREN

BELONG IN FAMILIES?

INCREASE.

THERE IS INTERNATIONAL

ADOPTION, DOMESTIC.

FOSTER CARE IS WONDERFUL.

SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE

CAN DO IS TO SPONSOR A

CHILD INTERNATIONALLY.

ONE ORGANIZATION WE WORK

WITH IS "COMPASSIONATE

INTERNATIONAL."

WE LOVE THE WORK THEY DO.

THE CHILD ACTUALLY STAYS

IN THEIR FAMILY, AND IT

GOES THROUGH THE LOCAL

CHURCH, WITH THE PASTOR,

AND THEY CAN GROW UP IN

THE LORD AND GET THEIR

MEDICATION, ANYTHING THEY

NEED.

YOU PAY A SMALL MONTHLY

AMOUNT, AND YOU CAN WRITE

LETTERS TO THEM FROM

OVERSEAS.

AND TO SEE THEM REALLY

BLOSSOM IN THEIR COMMUNITY

AND WITH THEIR FAMILIES.

Terry: IT IS AN

INSPIRING FILM.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR HARD

WORK.

YOU WENT TO 22

COUNTRIES --

YEAH.

GOD IS GOOD.

Terry: HE REALLY IS.

WE THANK YOU FOR BEING

WITH US TODAY, CASEY.

THE DOCUMENTARY IS CALLED

"LOST KITES," AND IT IS

ONE THAT HAS THE

ENDORSEMENT OF "ORPHANS'

PROMISE." WE'RE CBN'S ARM

EXTENDED TO ORPHANED AND

VULNERABLE CHILDREN AROUND

THE WORLD.

WE BELIEVE IN THIS ENTIRE

CONCEPT AS WELL, THAT

CHILDREN BELONG IN

FAMILIES.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE

HOW YOU CAN WATCH THAT

FILM OR SET UP A SCREENING

IN YOUR AREA, GO TO

cbn.com.

THIS IS AN IDEA WHO'S TIME

HAS COME.

WE NEED YOU TO HELP US

PROMOTE THAT.

CASEY, THANK YOU SO MUCH

FOR YOUR WORK.

THANK YOU.

Terry: COMING UP,

WE'VE GOT YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

CAROLYN SAYS, "I THINK MY

HUSBAND CHEATED, BUT HE

SAYS THEY DIDN'T SLEEP

TOGETHER.

IS THIS STILL ADULTERY?"

WE'RE GOING TO LET PAT

WEIGH IN ON THAT ONE AND A

LOT MORE.

AND IT'S COMING UP NEXT.

*

Terry: TIME TO "BRING

IT ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM CARLIN.

"I GOT MARRIED TO A GUY

WHO CONSTANTLY CHEATED.

I STAYED FOR OUR SON.

I BROKE UP WITH HIM AFTER

FIVE YEARS AND THEN GOT

BACK WITH HIM TWO YEARS

LATER, THINKING HE HAD

CHANGED.

WE REMARRIED.

NOW I FIND OUT HE CHEATED

AFTER THREE YEARS OF

MARRIAGE, EVEN THOUGH THEY

SAY THEY DIDN'T HAVE SEX.

IS IT ADULTERY IF HE SPENT

TIME WITH ANOTHER WOMAN

BUT DIDN'T HAVE SEX.

CAN I LEAVE HIM?

MY TRUST IS GONE."

Pat: I THINK YOU WERE

FOOLISH TO GET REMARRIED

TO SOMEBODY WHO IS A

SERIAL ADULTERER.

I DARE SAY HE DID THE SAME

THING.

THE TRUST IS GONE.

THE MARRIAGE BOND HAS BEEN

BROKEN.

AS FAR AS THE BIBLE, I

WOULD SAY YOU'RE FREE TO

LEAVE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO STAY IN

A RELATIONSHIP LIKE THAT.

HE IS GOING TO FLANDER.

THAT'S HIS NATURE.

AND IF YOU THINK THAT'S

GOOD FOR YOU, BY ALL MEANS

HANG AROUND.

BUT I THINK YOU'D BE

BETTER OFF TO BE FREE.

Terry: WELL, THERE IS

A SON INVOLVED, TOO, SO

YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL

WHAT YOU EXPOSE HIM TO.

> DAVID SAYS,, "I READ ON

THE INTERNET THAT THE

CHURCH JESUS WAS TALKING

ABOUT ACTUALLY MEANT

CONGREGATION, OR ASSEMBLY

OF BELIEVERS, AND NOT A

BUILDING.

AND IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,

GOD SAID HE DOESN'T LIVE

IN A MANMADE BUILDING, SO

WHY SHOULD WE HAVE TO GO

TO ONE EVERY SUNDAY?"

Pat: THE WORD IS

GREEK IS ECLASIA, WHICH

MEANS THE CALLED OUT ONES.

IN A COMMUNITY, THEY WOULD

RING A BELL AND THE PEOPLE

WOULD COME TOGETHER IN A

CHURCH.

A CHURCH IS NOT A

BUILDING.

IT IS A BODY OF BELIEVERS.

GOING TO A BUILDING IS NOT

WHAT GOD TALKS ABOUT.

WHAT HE TALKS ABOUT IS GET

TOGETHER WITH THOSE WHO

LOVE THE LORD.

DON'T FORSAKE THE

ASSEMBLING OF YOURSELVES

TOGETHER.

THE ONE THAT IS CALLED THE

ASSEMBLIES OF GOD MAY BE

CLOSER TO IT.

Terry: THIS IS A

VIEWER WHO SAYS, "I FEEL

LIKE WHEN I'M IN THE WILL

OF GOD, I REMAIN

CONFIDENT.

BUT ONCE I FALL INTO

SEXUAL SIN, THAT JOY AND

CONFIDENCE IN MYSELF GOES

AWAY.

I KNOW I'M NOTHING WITHOUT

JESUS.

AND I KNOW WE'RE SAVED BY

GRACE AND NOT THROUGH OUR

WORKS.

BUT THROUGH THE YEARS,

I'VE LET GOD DOWN MANY,

MANY TIMES.

I JUST WANT TO BE A GOOD

CHRISTIAN.

I FEEL SEPARATED AND SAD

WHEN I DON'T PLEASE GOD.

PLEASE HELP.

HOW SHOULD I GO ABOUT

HANDLING THIS?"

Pat: DAVID PRAYED --

REMEMBER HE HAD SEX WITH

BATBATHSHEBA, AND THEY HAD A

CHILD AND HE KILLED HER

HUSBAND, AND IT WAS BAD

STUFF.

Terry: YEAH.

Pat: HE SAYS IN THE

PSALM, "RESTORE UNTO ME

THE JOY OF MY SALVATION

AND TAKE NOT YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT FROM ME."

YOU WILL NOT HAVE JOY IF

YOU SIN.

ASK THE LORD TO FORGIVE

YOU, AND HE'LL DO IT.

ASK HIM TO CLEANSE YOU,

AND HE'LL DO IT.

AND BEGIN TO WALK IN THE

LIBERTY OF THE CHILDREN OF

GOD.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER-MINUTE: "THE

THINGS WHICH ARE

IMPOSSIBLE WITH MEN ARE

POSSIBLE WITH GOD."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.

BYE-BYE.
