Gordon: THE BOY WHO

PLAYED WITH FIRE.

I SAID, MOM, AM I GOING

TO DIE.

Gordon: AND WOUND UP

WITH BURNS OVER 100% OF

HIS BODY.

I SAID, MAMA, I DO NOT

WANT TO DIE; I WANT TO

LIVE.

Gordon: HIS INSPIRING

MESSAGE TO US ALL.

AT SOME POINT YOU HAVE

TO CHOOSE YOUR PATH.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

GOOD MORNING AND WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

FANTASIA BARRINO ROSE TO

FAME AS THE WINNER OF THE

THIRD SEASON OF THE

REALITY TELEVISION SERIES

"AMERICAN IDOL," AND ALL

OF THAT WAS BACK IN 2004.

SINCE WINNING, SHE SOLD

OVER THREE MILLION RECORDS

AND HAS WON NUMEROUS

AWARDS AND ACCOLADES,

INCLUDING A GRAMMY AWARD

AND THREE BOARD AWARDS.

Terry: SHE RECENTLY

SPARKED A DEBATE AFTER SHE

REPORTEDLY TURNED ONE OF

HER R & B CONCERTS INTO A

WORSHIP SERVICE.

HE DELIVERED A

SOUL-STIRRING RE RENDITION OF

"ABBA."

TAKE P A LOOK.

[INAUDIBLE]

CH

*

*

*

Gordon: THAT'S A

PRETTY INCREDIBLE CONCERT.

Terry: THEY SAY THAT

MORE THAN 10 PEOPLE

COMMITTED THEIR LIVES TO

CHRIST, BUT SOME

CHRISTIANS WERE TALKING

MORE ABOUT WHAT SHE WAS

WEARING THAN WHAT GOD DID.

THE HOLY SPIRIT SHOWS UP

WHERE HE WANTS WHEN HE

WANTS --

Gordon: AND HE

DOESN'T REALLY CARE.

Terry: -- AND SHE

MADE ROOM FOR HIM.

I SAY, GO, FANTASIA

BARRINO.

AND SHE ENCOURAGED

CONCERT-GOERS TO PRAY BY

SAYING THIS: THERE IS SO

MUCH GOING ON IN THE WORLD

TODAY, BUT YOU MUST

UNDERSTAND IT IS GOD WHO

IS YOUR PRECEDENT.

HE THE ONLY MAN YOU SHOULD

PUT YOUR TRUST IN.

WHY ARE WE GOING CRAZY?

WE BETTER SEEK HIM.

LEARN HOW TO PRAY FOR YOUR

SISTER AND YOUR BROTHER.

BOY, THERE IS A WISE

COUNSEL.

Gordon: AND THAT'S

GOOD COUNSEL FOR ALL OF

US.

LET'S LEARN TO PRAY

TOGETHER AND REALIZE THAT

TRUE UNITY ONLY COME IN

CHRIST.

WE'RE ALL ONE.

> A MAN WHO HELD A SIGN

READING "YOU BELONG" IN

FRONT OF AN ISLAMIC CENTER

IN TEXAS IS BEING PRAISED

ON Facebook AFTER PHOTOS

OF HIS ACT WENT VIRAL.

JUSTIN NORM NORMA HAD THE URGE

TO SHARE PEACE WITH HIS

NEIGHBORS.

HIS SIGN READS, "YOU

BELONG.

STAY STRONG, BE BLESSED,

WE ARE ONE AMERICA."

NORMA WROTE THIS ON HIS

Facebook PAGE.

IT WAS ABOUT BINDING UP

THE WOUNDED, AND SHOWING

COMPASSION FOR THE HURTING

AMONG US, AND IN SOME

CHRISTIAN TRADITIONS, THIS

IS ABOUT WASHING MY

BROTHERS' FEET.

THIS WAS ABOUT MY

RELIGION, NOT THEIRS.

AND THAT'S A GOOD

SENTIMENT.

IT'S ABOUT MY RELIGION.

IN VARIOUS TIMES IN THE

PAST, IN MISSION WORK TO

MUSLIMS, IT WAS ALWAYS THE

ONES WHO WENT INTO

HUMILITY WHO SAID, WHAT

CAN I DO FOR YOU?

THOSE ARE THE ONES WHO

MADE THE DIFFERENCE.

Terry: A GROUP OF

UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS

STUDENTS RECENTLY GOT THE

SURPRISE OF A LIFETIME

WHEN MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY

ROLLED UP IN A GOLF CART

TO GIVE THEM A RIDE HOME.

HE GOT BEHIND THE WHEEL

WITH THE STUDENT

GOVERNMENT PROGRAM CALLED

"SURE WALK."

THE PROGRAM OFFERS GOLF

CART RIDES AND WALKING

PARTNERS FOR STUDENTS WHO

ARE HEADED HOME.

MATTHEW AND HIS WIFE ALSO

PROVIDED A HELPING HAND

THIS PAST THANKS.

THEY JOINED GOVERNOR

ABBOTT AT A MEALS ON

WHEELS EVENT, PROVIDING

FOOD FOR THE NEEDY.

Gordon: WAY TO GO.

> IN OTHER NEWS, A YOUNG

TODDLER FELT THE URGE TO

SPEAK TO AN UTTERLY MAN IN

A GROCERY STORE.

4-YEAR-OLD NORA WOOD

SPOTTED 82-YEAR-OLD DAN

PETERSON TRAVELLING DOWN A

SHOPPING AISLE.

IT WAS THE DAY OF HER

BIRTHDAY, JUST 24 HOURS

AFTER TELLING HER MOM SHE

SPENT A SPECIAL CONNECTION

BETWEEN HERSELF AND THE

ELDERLY.

HERE IS WHAT SHE SAID: "I

LIKE OLD PEOPLES THE BEST,

BECAUSE THEY WALK 3 SLEE SLOW

LIKE WALK SLOW.

THEY IS GONNA DIE SOON, SO

I'M GONNA LOVE THEM UP

BEFORE THEY GET DYING."

SHE HAS TO GET SOME

GRAMMAR LESSONS.

HERE IS THE OTHER SIDE.

DAN HAD JUST LOST HIS WIFE

THAT PAST MARCH AND HAD

DIFFICULTY COPING.

BUT STOPPED AND TOOK A

PICTURE AND THEN TEARED UP

WITH GRATITUDE.

DAN SAYS HIS LIFE HAS BEEN

CHANGED.

THE CHANCE MEETING BETWEEN

THE TWO HAS NOW TURNED

INTO A FRIENDSHIP.

AND IT HAS CREATED SOME

WONDERFUL MEMORIES.

THEY SPENT HALLOWEEN AND

THANKSGIVING TOGETHER AS

BEST FRIENDS.

Terry: BOY, TALK

ABOUT POIGNANT PICTURES.

THOSE ARE AMAZING.

Gordon: THEY GET

TOGETHER ONCE A WEEK.

Terry: WHAT A GREAT

CHILD.

TALK ABOUT SOMEONE WHO IS

REALLY SENSITIVE.

Gordon: A LOT OF

EMPATHY FOR OTHERS, AND

REACHING OUT.

THAT'S WONDERFUL.

Terry: THAT WAS GOD'S

TIMING IN THAT ONE AS

WELL.

> WELL, COMING UP, A 9

YEARS OLD WHO PLAYED WITH

FIRE AND BURNED THE

MAJORITY OF HIS BODY.

IT WOULD REQUIRE DOZENS

OF SURGERIES.

IT WOULD REQUIRE

AMPUTATION.

AND I LOOK UP AT MY MOM,

AND I SAY, MOM, AM I GOING

TO DIE?

Terry: SEE HIS STORY

OF TRIUMPH OVER TRAGEDY.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS

THIS.

IT'S NEXT.

Terry: YOU'VE HEARD

THE PHRASE, "IF YOU PLAY

WITH FIRE, YOU'RE GOING TO

GET BURNED."

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT

HAPPENED TO JOHN O'LEARY

WHEN HE WAS JUST A YOUNG

BOY.

MOMENTS AFTER LIGHTING A

MATCH, HE WAS BURNED OVER

HIS ENTIRE BODY.

AND SOON HE HAD TO MAKE A

LIFE-CHANGING CHOICE.

I HAD SEEN LITTLE BOYS

IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD PLAYING

WITH FIRE AND GASOLINE.

I ASSUMED IF THEY COULD DO

THIS, SO COULD I.

SO ON A SATURDAY MORNING,

WITH MOM AND DAD BOTH

GONE, I WALKED INTO THE

GARAGE, LIT A PIECE OF

CARDBOARD ON FIRE, AND

CAME OVER TO A FIVE GALLON

CAN OF GASOLINE, AND THE

PLAN WAS TO PURE A LITTLE

GAS ON THE FLAME.

Reporter: BEFORE THE

GAS LEFT THE CONTAIN,

FUMES LIFTED 9-YEAR-OLD

JOHN O'LEARY, LISTING HIM

TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE

GARAGE.

HE WAS RUSHED TO THE

EMERGENCY ROOM, WHERE HIS

PARENTS MET HIM.

I LOOKED UP AT MY MOM,

AND I SAID, MOM, AM I

GOING TO DIE?

WHEN I ASKED THE QUESTION,

I WAS LOOKING FOR HOPE.

I KNEW VERY QUICKLY

WHAT A SERIOUS CONDITION

THIS WAS.

I REALLY FEEL IT WAS PUT

ON MY HEART.

AND I SAID, JOHN, DO YOU

WANT TO DIE?

SHE LOOKED ME IN THE

EYES FIRMLY AND SAID, IT'S

YOUR CHOOSE.

IT'S NOT MINE.

I SAID, MAMA, I DO NOT

WANT TO DIE.

I WANT TO LIVE.

AND HER RESPONSE WAS GOOD,

BABY, GOOD.

LOOK AT ME.

YOU TAKE THE HAND OF JESUS

AND WALK THE JOURNEY WITH

HIM.

Reporter: JOHN HAS

BEEN ON THAT PATH OF FAITH

EVER SINCE.

TODAY HE IS A SUCCESSFUL

SPEAKER AND NATIONAL

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR.

AT HOME HE IS HUSBAND TO

BETH AND FATHER OF FOUR

CHILDREN.

HE HAS OVERCOME CHALLENGES

TO LIVE WHAT HE CALLS A

RADICALLY-INSPIRED LIFE.

HE SAYS WE CAN ALL DO THE

SAME, AND IT STARTS WITH A

DECISION.

THIS CHOICE OF FREE

WILL THAT A LITTLE BOY,

EVEN AT AGE 9, HAD TO

MAKE.

AT SOME POINT YOU HAVE TO

CHOOSE YOUR PATH.

THERE WAS NO GUARANTY I

WOULD SURVIVE THE FIRE.

I HAD BURNS ON 100% OF MY

BODY.

87% WERE THIRD DEGREE.

I WAS ON A TRACH.

MY LUNGS HAD BEEN DAMAGED.

IT WOULD REQUIRE DOZENS OF

SURGERIES AND AMPUTATION.

WHAT MADE IT E ENDURABLE

WERWASMY FAITH IN GOD AND MY

PARENTS AND MY FRIENDS.

Reporter: HE REALIZED

HIS CHOICE TO LIVE MEANT

BEING A VICTOR, NOT A

VICTIM.

HE REFLECT BY THIS PIANO

WHERE HE LEARNED TO PLAY

"AMAZING GRACE."

ONE OF THE THINGS I WAS

GRATEFUL FOR AFTER BEING

BURNED IS AT LEAST I WILL

NEVER HAVE TO TAKE ANOTHER

PIANO LESSON AGAIN.

THE DOORBELL RANG, AND IT

WAS MY PIANO TEACHER.

MY MOM WALKED INTO THE

ROOM, AND SAID, IT'S YOUR

LESSON.

I COULDN'T USE THE EXCUSE

NOT TO DO SOMETHING I DID

BEFORE.

Reporter: AND HE NOW

LEARNS ACCEPTANCE FROM HIS

SON.

AND MY LITTLE

4-YEAR-OLD JACK WAS

SHAVING NEXT TO ME.

MY SHIRT WAS OFF, AND I

SAW HIM STARING AT MY

STOMACH.

MY STOMACH IS FULL OF BIG,

THICK, RED SCARS.

AND HE STARTED TRACKING

HIS FINGER ALONG ONE OF

THE SCARS.

AND HE LOOKS UP AND HE

SAYS, DAD, YOUR TUMMY IS

RED, BUMPY AND RIDGY, AND

I LOVE IT.

AND I LOVE IT.

HE SAW WITHIN ME BEAUTY

THAT I WAS UNABLE TO SEE

WITHIN MYSELF, WHICH IS

ALSO THE LENS I THINK

CHRIST SEES YOU THROUGH.

THE LENS OF BEING ABLE TO

SEE PERFECTION IN

BROKENNESS.

Reporter: JOHN SAYS

LIVING A RADICALLY

INSPIRED LIFE IS ABOUT

SEEING PAIN WITH

PERSPECTIVE.

SO ALTHOUGH PART OF MY

PRAYER IS TO BE HEALED OF

MY SCARS, TO HAVE FINGERS

GROW BACK, GOD HAS GIVEN

ME NOT AS EVIDENCE OF WHAT

I WENT THROUGH, BUT AS A

REMINDER OF HOW HE MAKES

ALL THINGS NEW.

Reporter: JOHN LIVES

IN ST. LOUIS AND TRAVELS

THE COUNTRY, SHARING HIS

TESTIMONY AND ENCOURAGING

OTHERS TO CHOOSE THEIR

PATHS AND OWN THEIR STORY.

HIS BOOK IS TITLED "ON

FIRE, THE SEVEN CHOICES TO

IGNITE A

RADICALLY-INSPIRED LIFE."

WHEN YOU TAKE THE WORST

AND UTILIZE YOUR FAITH TO

LET IT BE TRANSFORMED INTO

THE BEST, IT ALLOWS YOU TO

USE A SLOGAN, LIKE "ON

FIRE," FOR GOOD AND NOT

FOR BAD.

IT MEANS YOU ARE GRATEFUL

FOR EVERYTHING.

IT MEANS YOU SHOW UP EACH

DAY WITH EVERYTHING YOU'VE

GOT.

Reporter: AND IT

MEANS FAITH THAT IGNITES A

LIFE OF PURPOSE.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO

RECOGNIZE THE GIFT THAT IS

IN THE FIRE.

YES, IT CAN BURNED.

BUT IT IS ALSO TRUE IT CAN

RENEW YOUR SOUL.

IT CAN REFINE YOU INTO A

BETTER VERSION OF

YOURSELF.

I HAVE UNDERSTOOD THROUGH

JESUS WHAT JOY LOOKS LIKE.

IT IS NOT ALWAYS

PERFECTION HERE ON EARTH.

IT IS THE REALIZATION THAT

HE IS WORKING THROUGH THIS

THING, AND THAT OUR BEST

DAYS ARE COMING.

WHEN YOU REALIZE THAT, HOW

CAN YOU HELP BUT SING AND

HOW CAN YOU HELP BUT

SMILE.

Terry: BOY, IT IS

HARDLY EVER PERFECTION

HERE ON EARTH.

IN FACT, IT SEEMS LIKE THE

MORE FIRE YOU GO THROUGH,

THE MORE DIMINISHED YOU

BECOME, THE MORE YOU

UNDERSTAND THE RADICAL

GRACE AND MERCY AND LOVE

OF GOD.

THIS IS AN AMAZING STORY.

AS YOU AND I LISTEN TO

JOHN'S STORY TODAY, IT'S

FAIRLY EASY TO LISTEN TO

HIM TALK ABOUT WHAT

HAPPENED TO HIM.

I DON'T KNOW ANYONE WHO

HAS BEEN BURNED THAT

RADICALLY, BUT EVEN PEOPLE

WHO ARE BEEN BURNED FAR

LESS THAN THAT, THE

JOURNEY TO WHOLENESS IS

LONG AND PAINFUL AND

DIFFICULT.

BUT I THINK THE KEY TO

WHAT HE EXPERIENCED WAS

HIS CONVERSATION WITH HIS

MOM AT THE POINT OF

TURNING.

WHERE SHE SAID, DO YOU

WANT TO LIVE?

AND HE SAID, YES, I DO.

AND SHE SAID, GOOD, GOOD.

THEN KE KEEP COMING.

KEEP GOING.

KEEP CHOOSING.

I WOULD SAY THAT TO YOU

TODAY.

I KNOW THERE ARE MANY OF

YOU HURTING RIGHT NOW,

THAT FIND YOURSELF IN

CIRCUMSTANCES THAT CAN

FEEL JUST OVERWHELMING,

LIKE YOU CAN'T GET OUT

FROM UNDER IT.

LIKE THERE IS EVEN NO

HOPE.

IT IS NEVER TRUE.

IT IS ALWAYS WHAT PRESENTS

ITSELF RIGHT BEFORE US.

BUT BEYOND THAT, BEYOND

THE STORM, THERE IS A

BREAK IN THE CLOUDS.

AND THE SUN SHINES AGAIN.

CHOOSE TO HANG ON.

CHOOSE TO GRAB HOLD OF

GOD.

CHOOSE TO BELIEVE THE

PROMISES OF GOD.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE MUSIC

GROUPS HAS A SONG THAT

THEY SING THAT HAS THIS

LYRIC IN IT: HEAL THE

WOUND, BUT LEAVE THE SCAR

TO REMIND US OF HOW MERCY

YOU ARE.

GOD IS SO PER MERCIFUL TO YOU

AND ME, AND HE KNOWS YOU

AND ME INSIDE AND OUT, AND

HE LOVES US ANYWAY.

NO MATTER HOW DEEP THE PIT

MIGHT BE, REACH UP AGAIN

WITH YOUR HAND AND GRAB

HOLD OF GOD.

IF YOU DON'T KNOW HIM,

THEN ASK HIM RIGHT IN THE

MIDST OF YOUR STORM.

HE ALREADY SEES IT ALL,

KNOWS IT ALL, GETS IT ALL.

BUT YOU TELL HIM, YOU

SURRENDER, YOU GIVE YOUR

LIFE, YOU ASK FOR

FORGIVENESS.

YOU RECEIVE WHAT HE WANTS

TO GIVE TO YOU.

IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

IF YOU NEED SOMEONE TO

PRAY WITH YOU TODAY, OUR

NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE:

1-800-700-7000.

AND THERE IS A FRIEND ON

THE OTHER END OF THE LINE

WHO WOULD LOVE TO PRAY

WITH YOU TODAY.

GORDON?

Gordon: UP NEXT, THE

CAR ACCIDENT THAT LEFT

THIS SINGLE MOM IN A WORLD

OF PAIN.

ON A SCALE OF ONE TO

10, THE PAIN WAS 10 AND

ABOVE.

AND I WAS RAISING TWO BOYS

BY MYSELF AT THE TIME.

AND I HAD TO KEEP WORKING.

Gordon: SEE HOW SHE

FOUND A SUPERNATURAL

CONCLUSION.

PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU, SO STAY WITH US.

Gordon: DIANE

FILMEYER WAS ON HER WAY

HOME WHEN A DRUNK DRIVER

PLOWED INTO HER CAR.

18 YEARS LATER, DIANE WAS

STILL IN PAIN.

BUT SHE NEVER GAVE UP HOPE

FOR HER HEALING.

TAKE A LOOK.

ON A SCALE OF ONE TO

10, THE PAIN WAS 10 AND

ABOVE.

IT WAS DISCOURAGING.

THE RANGE OF MOTION THAT I

HAD WITH USING MY ARMS AND

MY UPPER SHOULDERS WAS

VERY, VERY LIMITED.

AND I WAS RAISING TWO BOYS

BY MYSELF AT THE TIME.

AND I HAD TO KEEP WORKING.

WHEN CAR ACCIDENT LEFT

DIANE FILMEYER WITH

PERMANENT MUSCLE DAMAGE IN

HER BACK, DOCTORS TOLD HER

SHE WOULD HAVE TO LIVE

WITH PAIN AND LIMITED

RANGE OF MOTION THE REST

OF HER LIFE.

BUT DIANE TRUSTED GOD FOR

HER HEALING.

I KNOW I HAVE A GREAT

PHYSICIAN IN HEAVEN, WHO

IS MY FATHER AND WHO TAKES

CARE OF ME.

I HAD TO LEARN PATIENCE.

I JUST HAD TO WAIT ON HIS

TIME.

DIANE SAID SHE PRAYED

FOR YEARS, UNTIL ONE DAY

GOD HEALED HER OF HER BACK

PAIN AND RESTORED MOST ALL

OF HER RANGE OF MOTION.

BY THEN SHE HAD ALSO BEEN

HAVING FREQUENT HEADACHES.

I JUST HAD TO RELY ON

THE LORD.

GETTING THROUGH THE

MOMENTS OF PAIN, GETTING

THROUGH THE HEADACHES,

WAITING PATIENT THE FOR

HIS TIME TO MOVE.

Reporter: A FEW YEARS

LATER, SHE LEARNED FROM A

CHIROPRACTOR THAT HER

SPINE WAS STILL UNDER

STRESS, WHICH WAS CAUSING

THE HEADACHES.

TREATMENTS OFFERED

TEMPORARY RELIEF, BUT SHE

KNEW ONLY GOD COULD

COMPLETELY HEAL HER.

THEN IN JUNE 2015, SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

THIS ONE PARTICULAR DAY

TERRY HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE A

SPINAL ISSUE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS,

BUT YOU HAVE SORT OF A

BLOCK TO THE IMPULSES THAT

NEED TO CONNECT DOWN YOUR

SPINE.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU.

I FELT A CHILL.

I FELT A WARMTH.

I WAS GETTING SO EXCITED.

I KNEW THAT THAT HEALING

WAS FOR ME.

IMMEDIATELY I COULD TELL

100% OF HEALING THAT TAKEN

PLACE.

I JUST FELT ON TOP OF THE

WORLD.

Reporter: FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN YEARS, DIANE

WAS COMPLETELY PAIN-FREE.

I ATTRIBUTE ALL THAT

HEALING TO THE GREAT

PHYSICIAN, N MY GOD, MY

SAVER, JESUS.

I CAN NOW DO ALL OF THE

WORK I NEED TO DO DURING

THE DAY, HAVE ENERGY IN

THE EVENING FOR MY SON.

IT PAYS TO BE PATIENT.

SOMETIMES IT IS HARD TO

STEP OUT IN FAITH, BUT AS

SOON AS YOU TAKE THAT STEP

OF FAITH, THE LORD MEETS

YOU.

IN THE END, HE WILL TAKE

CARE OF YOU.

HE HAS YOUR BACK.

Gordon: YOU CAN TRUST

HIM.

YOU CAN RELY ON HIM.

IT'S ANOTHER WORD FOR

FAITH.

IT MEANS YOU RELY ON GOD.

ONE OF THE GREAT CLUES, OR

KEYS, IF YOU WILL, TO

FAITH IS TO THANK HIM FOR

WHAT HE HAS ALREADY DONE.

AND WHEN YOU DO THAT,

YOU'RE REALIZING THAT IT

WAS ALL ACCOMPLISHED ON A

CROSS 2,000 YEARS AGO.

IT IS A FINISHED WORK.

JESUS SAID IT, AND HE SAID

IT IN THE 11th CHAPTER

OF MARK: "WHEN YOU PRAY,

BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE

ALREADY RECEIVED, AND YOU

WILL HAVE IT."

THAT'S SIMPLE, ISN'T IT.

SO BEGIN TO THANK HIM FOR

WHAT HE IS ABOUT TO DO FOR

YOU.

THANK HIM FOR HIS CROSS.

THANK HIM FOR THE

SACRIFICE.

THANK HIM THAT BY HIS

STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY

FOR YOU.

AND JUST START THANKING

HIM, AND LET'S SEE WHAT

GOD WILL DO FOR YOU.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU, AND

WE JUST THANK YOU.

WE THANK YOU FOR THE

CROSS.

WE THANK YOU THAT YOU CAME

TO FORGET OUR SIN, TO

CLEANSE US FROM ALL

UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

AND THROUGH THAT

SACRIFICE, WE'RE ABLE TO

GO BOLDLY TO THE THRONE OF

GRACE AND RECEIVE THE

ANSWER TO PRAYER.

SO AS PEOPLE ARE PRAYING

AND THANKING YOU IN

ADVANCE, WE JOIN WITH

THEM.

AND WE SAY OVER THEM, BE

HEALED NOW AND BE MADE

WHOLE.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE

HAD A DETERIORATION OF THE

JAW ON THE RIGHT SIDE, AND

GOD HAS JUST HEALED THAT

AND RESTORED THAT.

YOU'VE HAD DIFFICULTY

CHEWING, AND THERE IS A

POP IN YOUR JAW, AND GOD

HAS RESTORED IT ALL.

BEGIN TO DO WHAT YOU

COULDN'T DO BEFORE.

OPEN YOUR MOUTH WIDE AND

TAKE A BIG YAWN AND

REALIZE GOD HAS HEALED

YOU.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE A

CONDITION IN YOUR LUNGS.

IT IS ODD.

IT IS NOT A CANCER.

IT'S SOME KIND OF A MOLD

ISSUE.

IT HAS RESTRICTED YOUR

ABILITY TO BREATHE WELL

AND FUNCTION WELL.

GOD IS COMPLETELY REMOVING

THAT FROM YOU RIGHT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND

EXHALE.

YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED.

Gordon: I JUST WANT

TO ADD THAT YOU INHALED

SOME SPORES.

YOU WERE LOOKING FOR THAT

WORD, SPORES.

GOD IS HEALING YOU AND HE

IS SETTING YOU FREE FROM

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU'VE HAD

RECURRING PROBLEMS WITH

HEPATITIS "C" AND AN

ENLARGED LIVER, AND GOD

HAS HEARD YOUR CRY.

HE IS HEALING YOU OF THAT.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE

RESTORED AND MADE WHOLE.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOUR HEELS, THEY ARE SO

SORE.

YOU'RE?

TRYING TO FIGURE

OUT WHAT KIND OF SHOES TO

WEAR.

YOU DON'T HAVE MONEY TO GO

TO THE DOCTOR.

GOD IS HEALING YOUR

CONDITION RIGHT NOW.

THAT PAIN IS GONE IN

JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: GOD, WE JUST

THANK YOU.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR

SACRIFICE, WHICH HAS SET

US FREE.

WE THANK YOU FOR IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN TOUCHED

BY GOD, WILL YOU SHARE

YOUR STORY?

LET US KNOW.

CALL US: 1-800-700-7000.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU 24

HOURS A DAY.

PRAY FOR YOU, SO CALL US.

1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL TO COME,

A FATHER IN CHINA WONDERS,

WILL MY SON BE AN OUTCAST

LIKE ME?

SEE HOW YOU HELPED THIS

BABY'S DISABILITY

DISAPPEAR RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: MR. WOO HAS

BEEN OSTRACIZED ALL OF HIS

LIFE BECAUSE OF A

DISABILITY.

SO WHEN HIS SON WAS BORN

WITH A CLEFT PALATE, THIS

FATHER WAS DETERMINED TO

GET HELP FOR HIM.

BUT HE HAD NO WAY TO PAY

FOR THE SURGERY HIS CHILD

NEEDED UNTIL PEOPLE LIKE

YOU MADE IT POSSIBLE.

MR. WOO WAS BORN WITH A

SPINAL DEFORMITY, SO HE

STANDS ONLY FOUR FEET

TALL.

HE IS AN OUTCAST IN MOST

CIRCLES, BUT TO HIS WIFE

AND CHILDREN, HE IS THEIR

HERO.

HE WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR

HIS FAMILY, ESPECIALLY HIS

SON, WHO WAS BORN WITH A

CLEFT LIP AND PALATE.

I THOUGHT, LIKE FATHER,

LIKE SON.

WE ARE BOTH DISABLED.

PEOPLE LOOK DOWN ON ME,

AND NOW THEY WILL LOOK

DOWN ON HIM.

I COULD NOT HAVE THAT.

Terry: MR. WOO DID

FARM WORK TO RAISE MONEY

FOR SURGERY FOR HIS SON.

WHEN THAT WASN'T ENOUGH,

HE DID ODD JOBS IN THE

CITY.

THERE WERE TIMES WHEN I

DIDN'T EVEN MAKE A PENNY,

AND WE HAVE TO EAT OTHER

PEOPLE'S LEFTOVERS.

Terry: FEEDING CHEN

PING WAS A CHALLENGE.

HIS CLEFT LIP WAS SO

SEVERE, FOOD WOULD COME

OUT FROM HIS NOSE.

Terry: SOON WHERE

MR. WOO DREADED HAPPENED,

AND PEOPLE STARTED MAKING

FUN OF CHING PING.

WE WERE SCOLDED AND

PUSHED AWAY.

I KNEW IT WOULD BE

IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM TO

ULTIMATELY FIND A JOB OR

GET MARRIED.

PEOPLE WOULD BE SCARED OF

HIM HIS WHOLE LIFE.

MY HEART ACHED FOR MY

LITTLE BOY, BUT THERE WAS

NOTHING I COULD DO.

Terry: THEN MR. WOO

HEARD THAT CBN WAS

RESPONSES SPONSORING CLEFT

LIP AND PALATE SURGERY.

AND HE SIGNED HIS SON UP

RIGHT AWAY.

MY SON IS CURED.

HE LOOKS LIKE HE IS A

BRAND NEW BOY.

NOW HE CAN EAT WITHOUT

TROUBLE, AND NO ONE WILL

MAKE FUN OF HIM.

AND HE LAUGHS ALL THE

TIME.

AS A FATHER, I'M SO

RELIEVED.

CBN SAVED CHING PING, AND

HELPED MY ENTIRE FAMILY.

YOU ARE MY HERO.

Terry: THIS FATHER IS

MY HERO.

A MAN WHO WORKS LIKE THAT

TO SUSTAIN HIS FAMILY, TO

KEEP THEM ALIVE AND WELL,

IS AMAZING.

TO HAVE A SON WITH SUCH A

NEED AND NOT BE ABLE TO DO

ANYTHING ABOUT IT MUST BE

HEART-WRENCHING, AND IT

MUST ALSO BE WONDERFUL TO

YOU, IF YOU'RE A "700

CLUB" MEMBER, TO KNOW YOU

CAME RIGHT IN THE MIDST OF

THAT NEED AND CHANGED THIS

LITTLE BOY'S LIFE.

HE CAN EAT WELL NOW.

HE IS ACCEPTED BY PEOPLE.

HE'LL BE ABLE TO DEVELOP

FROM A SPEECH STANDPOINT.

HE'LL HAVE HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

HE'LL BE EDUCATED.

WE SAY THANK YOU.

THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE

AMAZING LIFE-CHANGING

THINGS THAT YOU AS A "700

CLUB" MEMBER HAVE DONE.

IT IS JUST 65 CENTS A DAY,

$20 A MONTH, AND THAT

MAKES YOU A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER.

CALL NOW, 1-800-700-7000.

GORDON?

Gordon: THIS IS A

WONDERFUL VERSE FROM

ISAIAH 53, ONE OF THE

GREAT VERSES OF THE BIBLE:

"HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR

TRANSGRESSIONS.

HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR

INIQUITIES.

THE CHASTISEMENT FOR OUR

PEACE WAS UPON HIM, AND BY

HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED."

AS WE HEAD INTO THE

CHRISTMAS SEASON, REALIZE

THAT JESUS CAME SO THAT

OUR SINS WOULD BE

FORGIVEN.

THAT'S WHAT THE ANGEL TOLD

JOSEPH, THAT HE CAME THAT

THE SINS OF ALL PEOPLE FOR

ALL TIME WOULD BE

FORGIVEN.

THAT IS THE MESSAGE OF

CHRISTMAS.

AND LET'S JUST ENJOY THAT

TODAY.

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN.
