700 Club Interactive - November 9, 2016

A U.K woman’s supernatural dream leads her to feed thousands of people, earning her the highest civilian honor from Queen Elizabeth. Read Transcript


Gordon: A WOMAN GETS

DIVINE DIRECTION.

I HEARD A VERY DISTINCT

VOICE.

I'M GOING TO FEED YOU WITH

MANA.

AND I THOUGHT, WHERE DID I

HEAR THAT FROM?

Gordon: AND SHE

PREPARES TO FEED THE POOR.

I HEARD THEM SAY, THEY

WON'T BE ABLE TO AFFORD TO

FEED THEIR FAMILIES.

Gordon: SEE HOW SHE

EARNED BRITAIN'S HIGHEST

HONOR ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

> WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

IT IS FINALLY OVER, AND

CONGRATULATIONS, YOU

SURVIVED IT.

THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTION.

BUT, LET'S BE HONEST ABOUT

IT, WE'RE ALL A LITTLE

WEARY OF POLITICKING, AND

HALF OF US ARE SAYING,

YAY, OUR GUY WON, AND THE

OTHER HALF, NOT SO GOOD

TODAY.

WE'VE GOT A PERFECT CURE

FOR YOU, AND IT IS CALLED

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING.

Terry: JUST REMEMBER,

YOU GOT APPROVAL HERE.

THE KIND OF SHOPPING WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT HERE WILL

MAKE YOU FEEL GREAT AND IT

WON'T BREAK THE BANK.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

PACKING SHOE BOXES WITH

GIFTS FOR NEEDY CHILDREN.

YOU KNOW WHAT GOES

GREAT WITH A GLASS OF

MILK?

PACKING A SHOE BOX.

SO BASICALLY YOU GET AN

EMPTY BOX, WHICH ANY BOX

WILL WORK.

REALLY, OKAY, NOT ANY BOX.

THIS IS MUCH BETTER.

SO NOW YOU HAVE YOUR EMPTY

BOX.

NOW, YOU CAN FIT THE AGE

RANGE, AND IF YOU WANT IT

TO BE FOR A BOY OR A GIRL.

LOOKS LIKE I'M GOING TO BE

PACKING FOR A BOY THIS

YEAR.

HYGIENE ITEMS AND SCHOOL

SUPPLIES.

THERE ARE, OF COURSE, SOME

ITEMS YOU CANNOT PACK,

LIKE LIQUIDS, FOOD, ITEMS

RELATED TO WAR, LIVE

ANIMALS.

AND DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT

PACKING CHOCOLATE BECAUSE

IT MELTS.

WHEN YOUR GIFT IS

FINISHED, YOU CAN WRITE A

LETTER AND INCLUDE A

PHOTO.

DOO, DOO, DOO, DOO, DOO.

WHEN YOUR BOX IS DONE, YOU

CAN MAKE A $7 SHIPPING

DONATION ONLINE TO FOLLOW

YOUR BOOK.

AND YOU CAN TRACK IT TO

SEE WHERE THE DESTINATION

OF GIFT WILL BE.

AND IT IS IMPORTANT TO

PRAY FOR THE CHILD HAD THAT IS

RECEIVING THIS GIFT.

BECAUSE PACKING A BOX IS A

WAY TO SHARE THE GIFT OF

THE GOSPEL WITH KIDS ALL

AROUND THE WORLD.

NOW THAT YOUR BOX IS DONE,

IT IS TIME TO GET MOVING.

TRANSPORT YOUR BOX TO A

NEARBY DROPOFF LOCATION

NEAR YOU.

THESE WILL BE OPENED ALL

ACROSS THE U.S. ON THE

THIRD WEEK IN NOVEMBER.

DROP IT OFF, AND VOIL,

YOU PACKED A SHOE BOX.

THIS IS NATIONAL

COLLECTION WEEK!

Terry: THAT KID IS A

42 COMMUNICATIONS MAJOR IN

DISGUISE, I JUST WANT TO

SAY.

Gordon: HE IS A PAID

ACTOR.

Terry: AND HE IS

GOOD.

THAT IS GREAT.

WELL, A LOT OF US HAVE

DONE SHOE BOXES OVER THE

YEARS, BUT HERE IS

SOMETHING YOU MIGHT NOT

HAVE EVER HAD THE

PRIVILEGE OF SEEING.

WE WANT TO SHOW YOU WHAT

IT LOOKS LIKE WHEN THAT

BOX THAT YOU PACKED

ARRIVES AT ITS

DESTINATION.

I LOVE HOW "SAMARITAN'S

PURSE" CONNECTS WITH THE

LOCAL CHURCHES IN THESE

AREAS TO PASS OUT THE

BOXES.

AND IN EACH BOX THEY ALSO

INCLUDE THE GOSPEL

MESSAGE, AND IT IS IN

THEIR LANGUAGE.

IT IS SO EXCITING FOR

THESE KIDS.

Gordon: IT IS A

WONDERFUL THING.

WHEN YOU SEE IT IN THE

FIELD AND YOU SEE THE

CHILDREN OPENING THEM, AND

THE JOY ON THEIR FACES,

MANY OF THEM HAVE NEVER

RECEIVED A PRESENT EVER IN

THEIR LIFE, AND YOU CAN BE

A PART OF IT.

IT IS A WONDERFUL THING TO

DO.

Terry: IT REALLY,

REALLY IS.

MAKE SURE YOU MAKE YOUR

BOX PRETTY BEFORE YOU PACK

IT, AS WELL.

Gordon: AND SHOE BOX

COLLECTION ENDS ON

NOVEMBER 21.

IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT

MORE, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO

IS GO TO

samaritanspurse.org.

> IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO

LOVES GRAPHICS AND NOVELS,

YOU'LL WANT TO SEE THIS.

PASTOR ART ARIS FELT A

COMPULSION TO START

WORKING IMMEDIATELY.

SO HE SPENT 40 DAYS

FASTING AND PRAYING FOR

GOD'S GUIDANCE.

AFTER THAT, HE FELT LED TO

START A CHRISTIAN COMIC

BOOK AND GRAPHIC NOVEL

COMPANY.

Terry: HIS LATEST

PROJECT IS THE BIBLE LIKE

YOU'VE ABSOLUTELY NEVER

SEEN IT BEFORE.

A STUNNING 2,000-PAGE

GRAPHIC NOVEL.

THE PROJECT TOOK SEVEN

YEARS TO COMPLETE.

ARIS AND HIS TEAM HOPE

THAT THE THREE VOLUME

BIBLE WILL ENGAGE AMERICAN

KIDS AND YOUNG ADULTS.

WE'D LIKE YOU TO TAKE A

LOOK.

Reporter: THE MOST

CHERISHED WORK OF ALL

TIME.

THE MOST-READ VOLUME OF

ALL TIME.

NOW THE MOST COMPLETE

GRAPHIC ADAPTATION OF ALL

TIME.

THE KING STONE BIBLE, THE

BEGINNING, THE PATRIARCHS.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.

THE JUDGES.

THE KING'S ONE.

THE KING'S TWO.

THE EXILE.

THE PROPHETS.

400 SILENT YEARS.

THEN THE CHRIST.

AND THE REVELATION.

ACTION AND ADVENTURE.

ROMANCE.

HISTORY.

THE FUTURE.

THE KING STONE BIBLE, OWN

IT TODAY.

Gordon: WELL, THAT

LOOKS FANTASTIC.

Terry: WELL, YOU, WHO

HAVE SPEARHEADED AND

CREATED SO THIS

"SUPERBOOK" SERIES, THAT

HAS BEEN REMARKABLE, CAN

APPRECIATE THE WORK THAT

MUST HAVE GONE INTO IT.

Gordon: AN INCREDIBLE

AMOUNT OF WORK, AND TO DO

IT FOR EVERY SINGLE BOOK

OF THE BIBLE.

MY HAT HAT'S OFF TO YOU, A

SEVEN-YEAR LABOR OF LOVE.

> ARE YOU EVER TOO OLD

TO GET BAPTIZED.

94-YEAR-OLD AFELIA WHITE

DOESN'T THINK SO.

SHE RECENTLY GOT BAPTIZED.

Terry: SHE BELIEVED

FOR DECADES SHE HAD A

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST,

BUT HER ROOMMATE, JOY,

REALIZED AFELIA WASN'T

CONFIDENT IN HER BELIEFS.

SO SHE SPOKE WITH HER

ABOUT SPIRITUAL MATTERS

FOR WEEKS AND PRAYED FOR

HER, AND IN AUGUST, SHE

REALIZED SHE NEEDED TO

ACCEPT CHRIST IN CHURCH.

SHE SAID, I WANT PEOPLE TO

KNOW IT IS NEVER TOO LATE.

GET WITH IT.

Gordon: ABSOLUTELY

NEVER TOO LATE.

IF YOU'RE NOT BAPTIZED,

GET WITH IT.

GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE OF

CHRIST.

IT IS A WONDERFUL THING,

AND IT IS SYMBOLIC THAT

YOU'RE DEAD TO YOUR OLD

LIFE AND YOU'RE RISEN TO

LIFE WITH HIM ANEW.

IT IS A WONDERFUL THING TO

DO.

Terry: AND IT LEAVES

YOU WITHOUT THOSE

QUESTIONS BECAUSE THAT'S

THE DAY THAT YOU DRAW THE

LINE IN THE SAND AND SAY,

I AM FOREVER HIS.

IT IS A REALLY A WONDERFUL

THING.

> WHEN BAD THINGS

HAPPEN, IT IS VERY EASY TO

LOOK UP AND SAY, WHY, GOD?

BILL JOHNSON, WHO IS A

PASTOR IN A CHURCH IN

REDDING, CALIFORNIA, SAYS

HE DOESN'T ASK THAT

QUESTION ANY LONGER.

Gordon: HE SAT DOWN

WITH HIS SON AND

DAUGHTER-IN-LAW, AND

EXPLAINED WHY NO MATTER

WHAT HAPPENS TO US, GOD IS

GOOD.

DAD, THANKS FOR TAKING

THE TIME WITH US TODAY TO

TALK ABOUT YOUR NEW BOOK,

"GOD IS GOOD."

I'M SO GLAD I GET TO DO

THIS.

TALK TO US ABOUT WHY

YOU WROTE THIS BOOK AT

THIS SPECIFIC TIME?

I WAS IN A PASTORS'

PRAYER MEETING A WHILE

BACK, AND WE WERE JUST

TALKING.

AND THE LORD HONESTLY

INTERRUPTED MY THOUGHTS

AND SAID, I WANT YOU TO

WRITE ABOUT MY GOODNESS.

I NEVER HAD HIM DIRECT ME

TO WRITE BEFORE.

I'VE HAD HIM CONFIRM.

I'VE HAD PEOPLE MAKE

SUGGESTIONS.

I PRAYED AND SAID, GOD, DO

YOU WANT ME TO DO THIS,

AND HE SAID YES, BUT I

NEVER HAD HIM INITIATE

SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

THIS IS SUCH A THEME OF

THE CHURCH AND YOUR LIFE.

YEAH.

IT FEELS LIKE YOU HAVE

ALREADY WRITTEN THIS

BOOK --

I BELIEVE IT IS THE

CORNERSTONE OF ALL

THEOLOGY.

IF YOU ADD GOD IS GOOD TO

ALL OF THESE OTHER THINGS,

THEN THAT THOUGHT GETS

DEFINED BY ALL OF THESE

OTHER THINGS.

BUT WHEN THE CORE VALUE IS

GOD'S GOODNESS, THEN

EVERYTHING ELSE GETS

DEFINED BY THAT.

IT IS FUN TO HAVE,

RIGHT NOW, ONE OF THE

BIGGEST ANTHEMS IN THE

CHURCH, WHICH IS "GOOD,

GOOD FATHER," AND IT'S

REALLY TIMING RIGHT NOW.

I LOVE IT.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM THAT

THIS WOULD DO FOR PEOPLE?

TO CHANGE THE WAY

PEOPLE THINK.

IF YOU CAN GET THE GOD IS

GOOD EQUATION AS THE

PRIMARY LENS WITH WHICH

YOU SEE LIFE, YOU WILL

ALWAYS HAVE HOPE.

Gordon: YOU WILL

ALWAYS HAVE HOPE.

IF YOU WANT TO HEAR MORE,

JUST PICK UP A COPY OF THE

BOOK.

IT'S CALLED "GOD IS GOOD,"

AND IT IS AVAILABLE

WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD.

Terry: I LIKE WHAT HE

HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE

PREMISE OF THAT BEING THE

PLACE THAT WE LIVE FROM.

IT DOES CHANGE EVERYTHING.

Gordon: IT DOES.

IT GETS RID OF THE

QUESTION WHY.

Terry: COMING UP, SHE

OBEYED A WORD FROM GOD AND

ENDED UP IN BUCKINGHAM

PALACE.

SEE WHY QUEEN ELIZABETH IS

HONORING HER WITH ONE OF

Terry: JUNE ROSS

WOULD CONSIDER HERSELF A

ORDINARY WOMAN LIVING IN

THE UNITED CIP UNITED KINGDOM.

SO HOW DID SHE END UP

RECEIVING THE COUNTRY'S

MOST HIGHEST HONORS?

Reporter: FORMER

BRITISH MEDICAL HEALTH

WORKER, TURNED

STAY-AT-HOME MOM, WAS

VACUUMING HER RUG IN 2004

WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENED.

I HEARD A VERY DISTINCT

VOICE, TALKING ABOUT MANA.

AND I THOUGHT, WHERE DID I

HEAR THAT BEFORE?

I REMEMBER THE STORY OF

ISRAEL, WHEN THEY LEFT

EGYPT, AND GOT PROVISIONS

WITH THE MANA.

Reporter: ALL HER

LIFE, JUNE HAD READ THE

BIBLICAL.

SHE WAS A PASTOR'S

DAUGHTER AND HAD BEEN

RAISED IN THE CHURCH.

SHE KNEW FROM STUDYING THE

SCRIPTURES THAT GOD SPOKE

TO PEOPLE THROUGH DREAMS

AND VISIONS.

THINGS COME THROUGH

DREAMS.

Reporter: JUNE SAID

GOD TOLD HER TO PREPARE

FOR A WORLDWIDE ECONOMIC

EVENT FOUR YEARS IN THE

FUTURE.

SHE WOULD BE NEEDED TO

HELP FEED PEOPLE.

I HEARD THE LORD START

TO SAY, THEY'LL BE LOSING

THEIR JOBS AND THEY WON'T

BE ABLE TO AFFORD TO FEET

THEIR FAMILIES.

I THOUGHT, I DON'T KNOW

HOW THIS WILL BE DONE, BUT

I'LL JUST BE OBEDIENT.

Reporter: THREE WEEKS

LATER, JUNE HAD A VIVID

DREAM WITH A PURPLE PIECE

OF FABRIC AND FOOD MOVING

RAPIDLY.

I DREAMED I WAS

STANDING IN FRONT OF A

SUPERMARKET AND I HAD A

CROWN ON MY HEAD AND A

PURPLE ROBE ON.

AND AS I LOOKED AT MY

HANDS, FOOD WAS COMING OUT

AT A VERY PHENOMENAL RATE.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT,

EITHER, BUT THE DREAM WAS

VERY PROFOUND.

Reporter: THE DREAM

WAS SO STIRRING, THAT JUNE

PURCHASED A LITTLE TIERRA

AND PURPLE FABRIC AND PUT

THEM IN A BOX FOR

SAFEKEEPING.

BECAUSE OF THE DREAM AND

THE VISION, JUNE WENT OUT

AND ASKED LOCAL RETAILERS

QUESTIONS ABOUT THEIR

UNSOLD FOOD.

I SAID, WHAT DO YOU DO

WITH YOUR SURPLUS FOOD?

THEY SAID THEY THREW IT

AWAY.

AND I SAID, I WOULD LIKE

TO COME AND COLLECT IT.

I'LL HAVE SOME VOLUNTEERS

COME.

AND THEY WERE FINE.

THEY WERE VERY WELCOMING

BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY

RETAILERS DON'T WANT TO

THROW AWAY THEIR FOOD.

Reporter: FOR THE

NEXT TWO YEARS, JUNE'S

HOME BECAME THE HUB OF

FOOD DISTRIBUTION TO THE

NEEDY IN HER LOCAL

COMMUNITY.

WE LITERALLY STARTED

WITH ABOUT 10 VOLUNTEERS,

AND WE STARTED FROM MY

HOME.

I WOULD HAVE VOLUNTEERS

HELP ME TO GO TO THE

SUPERMARKETS AND BRING IN

ALL OF THESE CRATES.

THERE WAS NO SPACE IN THE

HOUSE.

THERE WERE CRATES ON THE

STAIRS, CRATES IN THE

KITCHEN.

IT WAS JUST JAM-PACKED.

Reporter: SOON JUNE

NAMED AND REGISTERED HER

CHARITY, "ESTHER COMMUNITY

ENTERPRISE."

WORD GOT AROUND, AND

THERE WAS 4,000 PEOPLE IN

AND OUT, IN AND OUT,

COMING INTO MY HOME.

IT WAS ALWAYS THE POOREST

PEOPLE.

Reporter: THEN IN

2008, JUST LIKE IN JUNE'S

VISION, A GLOBAL FINANCIAL

CRISIS AND RECESSION HIT.

THERE WAS TREMENDOUS

LOSS OF JOBS.

THERE WAS A LOT OF PEOPLE

LITERALLY DIDN'T HAVE

ANYTHING TO EAT.

EVERYTHING THAT HE SHOWED

ME LITERALLY CAME TO PASS.

WE STARTED HAVING

DIFFERENT PEOPLE COMING TO

JOIN.

LOCAL CHURCHES WERE

AFFILIATED AS THEY CAME

AND JOINED US.

THE FOOD WAS DISTRIBUTED

IN DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES.

Reporter: BY LATE

2008, "ESTHER COMMUNITY

ENTERPRISE" WAS FEEDING

17,000 PEOPLE A MONTH.

IT WAS LIKE IN THE BIBLE

WHEN THE ISRAELITES

COLLECTED MANA IN THE

WILDERNESS EVERY MORNING.

JUNE QUICKLY GOT THE FOOD

TO THE HUNGRY BEFORE THE

SELL DATE.

THERE WAS AN AMAZING

AMOUNT OF VOLUNTEERS,

ABOUT 300 AMAZING PEOPLE

WHO SACRIFICED THEIR TIME

AND THEIR FINANCES.

SO THE VOLUNTEERS REALLY

ARE THE MAIN CORE OF WHAT

WE ACTUALLY DO.

Reporter: JUNE SAYS

THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME

FOR HER AND HER VOLUNTEERS

WAS THE SPECIAL PACKAGES

MADE AT CHRISTMAS.

WE WERE UP TO 2:00,

3:00 IN THE MORNING, AND

FAMILIES ARE WAITING FOR

THEIR LITTLE PARCELS TO

COME THROUGH.

AND THE TEARS -- THERE IS

NO WORD FOR THAT.

BECAUSE EVERYBODY NEEDS TO

EAT.

NO ONE SHOULD BE FEELING

HUNGRY.

SO WHEN YOU ACTUALLY KNOCK

ON THE DOOR AND YOU SEE

THESE CHILDREN GETTING

EXCITED, OH, MOMMY, LOOK,

HE IS HERE, IT'S WORTH IT.

Reporter: BY 2011,

JUNE'S JOURNEY TO FEED

HUNGRY PEOPLE IN THE U.K.

LANDED HER AT ONE OF THE

MOST FAMOUS ADDRESSES IN

THE WORLD, BUCKINGHAM

PALACE.

IT WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL

EXPERIENCE, GOING THROUGH

THE PALACE AND OUT INTO

THE GARDENS.

Reporter: JUNE,

REPRESENTING "ESTHER

COMMUNITY ENTERPRISE," WAS

HONORED WITH THE QUEEN'S

AWARD FOR VOLUNTARY

SERVICE.

IT IS THE HIGHEST AWARD

GIVEN TO VOLUNTARY GROUPS

IN THE UNITED KINGDOM.

THERE WAS A CERTIFICATE

GIVEN AND SIGNED BY THE

QUEEN HERSELF.

AND PART OF IT SAID WE

WOULD BESTOW FAVOR, WHICH

IS WHAT ESTHER DID WHEN

SHE RECEIVED FAVOR FROM

THE KING.

Reporter: EVEN THE

AWARD ITSELF LOOKED LIKE

THE IMAGES OF COLORS FROM

HER DREAM SEVEN YEARS

EARLIER.

I THOUGHT, IS THIS FOR

REAL?

IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING?

TO SEE HOW GOD BRINGS THE

PIECES OF OUR LIVES

TOGETHER EVEN WHEN WE

DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT HE

IS DOING.

HE HAS A WAY OF BRINGING

THINGS TOGETHER.

Reporter: TODAY,

"ESTHER COMMUNITY

ENTERPRISE" SERVES

APPROXIMATELY 25,000 NEED NEEDY

PEOPLE PER MONTH, ALL OVER

THE U.K., WITH QUALITY

FOOD.

I'M PRIVILEGED THAT GOD

ASKED ME TO DO THIS.

WE ARE CALLED AS SERVANTS.

THAT SHOULD BE OUR HEART.

Terry: I LOVE THIS

STORY.

I LOVE HER WILLINGNESS TO

JUST WALK FORWARD IN WHAT

GOD SHOWED HER WHEN SHE

DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHERE SHE

WAS GOING.

AND LOOK AT THE LIVES SHE

HAS TOUCHED.

HERE IS AN UPDATE ON JUNE:

NOT ONLY HAS HER CHARITY

BEEN RECOGNIZED WITH THE

QUEEN'S AWARD, BUT ON

SEPTEMBER 2nd, 2017,

JUNE LOSS WILL BE GOING TO

WINDSOR CASTLE TO RECEIVE

THE MEMBER OF THE ORDER OF

THE BRITISH EMPIRE, WHICH

WILL BE GIVEN TO HER BY A

MEMBER OF THE ROYAL

FAMILY.

THAT IS VERY SPIFFY.

Gordon: THAT IS VERY

SPIFFY.

THAT IS AN INCREDIBLE

HONOR AND AN INCREDIBLE

SERVICE.

BUT IT STARTED WITH A

DREAM.

Terry: AND IT STARTED

WITH A YES.

KIND OF LIKE THE ANGEL

THAT CAME TO MARY --

Gordon: YOU HAVE TO

AMEN GOD.

AND WHEN YOU AMEN GOD AND

SAY, YES, GOD, I'LL DO,

THEN AMAZING THINGS WILL

HAPPEN.

Terry: AWESOME.

Gordon: IT WON'T

ALWAYS BE EASY, BUT IT

WILL BE AMAZING.

> ARLIE IS A SINGLE MOM

IN EL SALVADOR.

ALL SHE NEEDED WAS A

LITTLE HELP TO MAKE A

BETTER LIFE FOR HER AND

HER CHILDREN AND THAT'S

EXACTLY WHAT SHE GOT.

Reporter: 11-YEAR-OLD

BRIAN WATCHES HIS TWO

YOUNGER CENTER FIEL SISTERS EVERY DAY

WHILE HIS MOM GOES TO

WORK.

BRIAN HAD TO DROP OUT OF

SCHOOL TO TAKE ON THE ROLE

OF BABY-SITTER.

I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO

LEAVE THEM WITH BRIAN.

BECAUSE THE GIRLS ARE SO

YOUNG, I DIDN'T WANT TO

LEAVE THEM ALONE.

Reporter: ONE DAY SHE

MET SOMEONE FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND

TOLD HER ABOUT HER

SITUATION.

A FEW DAYS LATER, WE

ARRIVED AT HER HOME WITH A

GRILL AND OTHER ITEMS TO

START A BUSINESS SELLING

TORTILLAS.

BECAUSE THIS IS A STAPLE

FOOD IN THE COMMUNITY,

EVERYONE STARTED BUYING

THEM FROM ARLIE ON THEIR

WAY HOME FROM WORK.

I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW

MUCH I'M SELLING TO MY NEW

CLIENTS.

I KNEW IT WAS GOD WORKING

THROUGH YOU THAT MADE THIS

HAPPEN FOR US.

Reporter: ARLIE NOW

MAKES THREE TO FOUR TIMES

AS MUCH AS SHE USED TO

EARN, AND SOME DAYS EVEN

MORE.

AND BECAUSE SHE IS WORKING

FROM HOME, BRIAN IS ABLE

TO HEAD BACK TO SCHOOL,

WITH A NEW UNIFORM AND

SUPPLIES COURTESY OF

"OPERATION BLESSING."

I'M SO EXCITED TO GO

BACK TO SCHOOL.

I LIKE IT VERY MUCH.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR GIVING US

HOPE.

GOD BLESS YOU NOW AND

FOREVER.

Gordon: THANKS FOR

GIVING US HOPE.

WHAT AN AMAZING THING.

THANKS FOR GIVING US HOPE.

AND YOU'RE PART OF THAT IF

YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB."

SO THANK YOU.

THAT THANK YOU GOES TO YOU

BECAUSE WITHOUT YOU, IT

DOESN'T HAPPEN.

BUT WITH YOU, WE'RE ABLE

TO DO THESE WONDERFUL

THINGS.

IT IS AMAZING WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

JOIN TOGETHER TO SAY,

LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN

THE WORLD.

LET'S GIVE PEOPLE HOPE.

IF THAT'S YOU, JOIN WITH

US.

JOIN IN EVERYTHING WE'RE

DOING.

A PORTION OF EVERY GIFT TO

"THE 700 CLUB" GOES INTO

THE WORK OF "OPERATION

BLESSING" TO HELP PEOPLE.

ANOTHER PORTION GOES INTO

THE WORK OF CBN

INTERNATIONAL TO PREACH

THE GOSPEL AROUND THE

WORLD.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT AND

BE A PART OF THAT, ALL

HAVE YOU TO DO IS JOIN.

HOW MUCH IS IT?

JUST $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS

A DAY.

WHEN YOU CALL AND JOIN,

I'VE GOT SOMETHING FOR

YOU.

IT IS MY FATHER'S LATEST.

IT IS A READING OF THE

GOSPEL OF JOHN, WHERE HE

GOES THROUGH AND READS THE

ENTIRE BOOK OF JOHN.

AND THERE IS SOMETHING

THAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HEAR

THE WORD OF THE LORD.

FAITH COMES BY HEARING,

AND HEARING BY THE WORD.

I WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

IT IS YOURS WHEN YOU JOIN

WITH US.

SO CALL: 1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, A WORSHIP DANCER

STARTS TO LOSE SOME OF HER

AGILITY.

WHEN I WOULD GO TO

KNEEL, IT WOULD BE

EXCRUCIATINGLY PAINFUL.

AND THAT'S THE THING I

REALLY DIDN'T LIKE.

Terry: SEE HOW SHE

GETS A SUPERNATURAL ANSWER

Gordon: TERESA

GARDENER IS THE DIRECTOR

OF A WORSHIP DANCE

MINISTRY.

BUT SEVERAL MONTHS AGO,

TERESA WORRIED THAT HER

DANCING DAYS MIGHT SOON BE

DONE.

I REMEMBER GETTING

SPANKED BECAUSE I DID NOT

WANT TO GO TO THE BALLET

CLASS.

AND LATER IN HIGH SCHOOL,

I WANTED TO LEARN TO

DANCE.

AND SO I TOOK A MODERN

DANCE CLASS.

I WAS SO BAD, I DROPPED

OUT.

Reporter: TERESA

GARDENER ADMITS THAT HER

PILETS AND PEROWETS WERE

LESS THAN PERFECT.

BUT SHE IS NOW THE

DIRECTOR OF A WORLDWIDE

WORSHIP DANCE MINISTRY.

ONE SUNDAY AT THE END

OF THE SERVICE, DANCE JUST

BURST FORTH.

FROM THAT POINT ON, DANCE

JUST BECAME A NATURAL

EXPRESSION OF MY IS LOVE

AND WORSHIP TO THE LORD.

Reporter: FOR 30

YEARS, TERESA'S LOVE TO

WORSHIP GOD THROUGH DANCE

HASN'T WANED.

WHAT HAS DIMINISHED IS HER

PHYSICAL ABILITY TO DO IT.

A FEW MONTHS AGO, SHE

NOTICED SOME TROUBLING

SYMPTOMS.

I HAD NOTICED I WASN'T

ABLE TO DO THINGS AS

EASILY AS I HAD BEEN

BEFORE, LIKE KNEELING

BEFORE THE LORD.

I NOTICED IT WAS A LOT

HARDER FOR ME TO GET UP.

SOMETHING WASN'T

CONNECTING LIKE IT WAS

SUPPOSED TO CONNECT.

Reporter: WHEN HER

SYMPTOMS WORSENED, TERESA

BECAME CONCERNED.

WHEN I WOULD GO TO

KNEEL, IT WOULD BE

EXCRUCIATINGLY PAINFUL.

I WAS LIKE, LORD, ARE MY

KNEELING DAYS OVER?

I DON'T WANT TO NOT BE

ABLE TO KNEEL BEFORE YOU.

Reporter: TERESA SAID

SHE SLOWLY BECAME RESIGNED

TO HER PHYSICAL

LIMITATIONS.

I DIDN'T THINK OF IT AS

AN INJURY.

I JUST THOUGHT, I'M

GETTING OLDER.

Reporter: THEN ONE

MORNING TERESA TURNED ON

THE TELEVISION.

I WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

GORDON SAID --

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE WHO HAS

PROBLEMS WITH THE

LIGAMENTS IN YOUR RIGHT

KNEE.

THEY'VE BEEN STRETCHED AND

ONE HAS BEEN TORN.

AND YOU'RE IN SEVERE PAIN.

GOD IS HEALING THAT.

HE IS ABLE TO RESTORE AND

COMPLETELY HEAL THAT.

IN JESUS' NAME, DO WHAT

YOU COULDN'T DO BEFORE.

BEGIN TO MOVE THAT KNEE --

I WAS PRAYING ALREADY,

BUT WHEN HE SAID RIGHT

KNEE, I THOUGHT, COULD

THAT BE ME?

BUT WHEN HE SAID THAT

ABOUT THE TORN LIGAMENT, I

HAD NO IDEA I HAD A TORN

LIGAMENT.

ISN'T GOD GOOD?

SO I GET UP AND I STAND

UP, AND I'M, LIKE, OKAY,

THIS FEELS PRETTY GOOD.

THIS IS DIFFERENT.

I THOUGHT THE REAL TEST IS

GOING TO BE WHEN I KNEEL

DOWN AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

AND WHEN I KNELT, THERE

WAS NO PAIN.

I WAS ESTATIC.

I WAS SO THANKFUL.

SO I GOT UP AND I KNELT

DOWN AGAIN, JUST WANTING

TO MAKE SURE.

I CAN KNEEL NOW.

I WAS SO EXCITED.

SO I JUST GIVE THE GLORY

TO THE LORD.

Reporter: TODAY

TERESA IS STILL PAIN-FREE,

AND SHE IS ABLE TO TEACH

SIX WORSHIP DANCE CLASSES

A WEEK.

HE CARES ABOUT THE

LITTLE THINGS.

YES, I'M GETTING OLDER.

YES, I'M SLOWER.

I UNDERSTAND THAT.

BUT HE DIDN'T LEAVE ME IN

THE CONDITION THAT I WAS

IN.

AND WHEREAS I WAS WILLING

TO SETTLE, HE WAS, LIKE,

NO, I WANT YOU TO BE

HEALED.

Gordon: DON'T BE

WILLING TO SETTLE.

WALK INTO THAT

TRANSCENDENT PLACE, WHERE

YOU'RE WITH HIM, AND ALL

THINGS BECOME POSSIBLE.

JUST OPEN UP TO THAT.

OPEN UP TO THE POTENTIAL

THAT YOU HAVE WITH GOD.

NOW, TERRY AND I ARE GOING

TO PRAY.

AND HERE IS A THOUGHT FOR

YOU.

GOD ALWAYS RESPONDS TO

FAITH.

HE ALWAYS RESPONDS TO IT.

HE IS LOOKING FOR IT.

THE OI EYES OF THE LORD GO TO

AND FRO OVER THE WHOLE

EARTH TO SHOW HIMSELF

STRONG FOR YOU.

SO LET'S JUST BELIEVE THAT

AND RECEIVE IT.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU, AND

AS PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING

WITH PAIN, WE KNOW YOU

CARE FOR THEM.

WE KNOW YOU WANT TO HEAL

THEM, FOR YOU ARE A GOOD

GOD.

STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND TO

DO MIRACLES, FOR WE ASK IT

IN JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE

GOT PROBLEMS WITH THE

LIGAMENTS IN YOUR RIGHT

ELBOW.

AND YOU'RE SAYING, PLEASE

SAY THAT.

IT IS TENDONITIS, AND

YOU'VE HAD A RECURRING

INJURY, AND GOD IS HEALING

YOU RIGHT NOW.

HE IS RESTORING IT.

YOU JUST FELT MOVEMENT GO

INTO THAT ELBOW.

RECEIVE IT NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

> THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME

WE HAVE.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THIS

WORD FROM JOHN 15: "IF YOU

ABIDE IN ME, AND MY WORDS

ABIDE IN YOU, YOU WILL ASK

WHAT YOU DESIRE, AND IT

SHALL BE DONE FOR YOU."

GOD BLESS YOU.
