Gordon: TODAY, FORMER

MISS AMERICA...

I NEVER EXPECTED TO

WIN.

Gordon: HER PERSONAL

STORY.

DEEP DOWN, I WAS

SEARCHING FOR WORDS.

Gordon: AND HER

PASSION TO TELL THE

STORIES OF OTHERS.

THERE ARE BILLIONS OF

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE GLOBE

THAT HAVE A STORY.

Gordon: PLUS, MEET A

MAN DOCTORS CALL THE

CHRISTMAS MIRACLE.

HIS HEART STOPPED

PUMPING.

HE WAS DYING.

Gordon: AND HIS

GUARDIAN ANGEL.

I CHOOSE TO LOOK AT

SUPERNATURALITY.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

> WELL, WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

A CHRISTIAN GOVERNOR IN

THE WORLD'S LARGEST MUSLIM

NATION IS ON TRIAL FOR

BLASPHEMY RESULTING FROM

HIM CLAIMING THE QURAN

DOESN'T REQUIRE YOU TO

VOTE FOR A MUSLIM.

HIS CASE IS BEING SEEN AS

A TEST OF INDONESIA'S

COMMITMENT TO RELIGIOUS

TOLERANCE.

Terry: AND WHILE

CHRISTIANS SUPPORT BASUKI

TJAHAJA PURNAMA WHEN HE

SAYS HE NEVER INTENDED TO

ATTACK ISLAM'S HOLY BOOK,

MANY MUSLIMS ARE OUTRAGED.

GARY LANE BRINGS US THE

STORY.

Reporter: ON THE

FIRST DAY OF HIS BLASPHEMY

TRIAL, BASUKI TJAHAJA

PURNAMA, SAID HE NEVER

INTENDED TO OFFEND MUSLIMS

OR ISLAM.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

I NEVER INTENDED TO

INSULT MUSLIMS OR THE

CLERGY.

ON THAT BASIS, I PLEAD

WITH THE JUDGES.

Reporter: IT STEMS

FROM STATEMENTS HE MADE

WHILE CAMPAIGNING SEVERAL

MONTHS AGO.

IF FOUND GUILTY, HE COULD

SPEND FIVE YEARS IN

PRISON.

APPOINTED BY THE INDONESIA

PRESIDENT, HE IS THE FIRST

ETHNIC CHINESE GOVERNOR,

AND THE FIRST NON-MUSLIM

TO SERVE IN THE OFFICE IN

MORE THAN HALF A CENTURY.

MARK McCLINTON TOLD US,

HE ISN'T YOUR TYPICAL

POLITICIAN.

HE IS A VERY

TRANSPARENT MAN, VERY

OPEN, VERY HONEST MAN.

HE SAYS WHAT HE THINKS.

HE IS BEING FORTHRIGHT.

AND PEOPLE LOVE THAT ABOUT

HIM.

Reporter:

MCCLINTOCKON SAYS HE HAS

GAINED RESPECT BY STAMPING

OUT CORRUPTION AND COULD

BE FREELY ELECTED AT

GOVERNOR NEXT YEAR.

OVER THE LAST THREE

YEARS OF HIM BEING VICE

GOVERNOR AND THEN

GOVERNOR, PEOPLE HAVE FELT

A DRAMATIC CHANGE COME

OVER THIS CITY.

Reporter: AT THE

CAMPAIGN TIME, HE SAID HIS

OPPONENTS WERE LYING, BY

SAYING THAT THE QURAN

PROHIBITS SUPPORTERS FROM

VOTING FOR NON-MUSLIMS.

NOBODY WAS THERE FILING

A POLICE REPORT.

IT WAS SOMEBODY ELSE LATER

ON.

SO, NO, THERE WAS NO

BLASPHEMY.

HE WAS JUST SIMPLY SAYING

THAT, YOU KNOW, DON'T LET

PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, USE THE

SCRIPTURES OF THE QURAN TO

TRY TO CONVINCE YOU NOT TO

VOTE FOR ME.

Reporter: OUTSIDE THE

COURTHOUSE, MILITANT

MUSLIMS DEMAND CONVICTION,

WHILE PURNAMA'S SUPPORTERS

RALLY.

SOME FEAR THERE IS A

RAPIDLY GROWING ISLAMIC

MILITANTCY IN THE COUNTRY.

ACCORDING TO INDONESIA'S

CONSTITUTION, FREEDOM OF

RELIGION IS WELL-PROTECTED

NATIONWIDE.

HOWEVER, MILITANT MUSLIM

GROUPS OFTEN TAKE VIOLENT

AND ILLEGAL ACTION AGAINST

CHRISTIANS AND CHURCHES.

HIS TRIAL RESUMES NEXT

WEEK, AND COULD LAST

BEYOND THE FEBRUARY

ELECTION.

IF ELECTED, PURNAMA WOULD

CONTINUE AS GOVERNOR,

UNLESS CONVICTED OF THOSE

BLASPHEMY CHARGES.

WHAT SHOULD CHRISTIANS

PRAY?

PRAY FOR AHOK TO

CONTINUE TO SHARE HIS

HEART, AND PRAY SO THAT

THIS TRIAL CAN'T BE

MANIPULATED BY THE RADICAL

MUSLIM MINORITY.

AND THAT TRUE JUSTICE WILL

BE DONE.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Gordon: THERE IS

ALITY AT STAKALOT AT STAKE WITH THIS

TRIAL, PARTICULARLY FOR

INDONESIA, BUT FOR THE

WORLD.

FOR INDONESIA, WHAT IS AT

STAKE IS THEIR RIGHT TO

FREE SPEECH, TO OPEN

ELECTIONS, TO FREEDOM OF

RELIGION.

ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE AT

STAKE HERE.

AND WHAT THE COMMENT HAD

TO DO WITH IS THERE IS A

VERSE IN THE QURAN THAT

SAYS MUSLIMS SHOULDN'T BE

RULED BY NON-MUSLIMS.

THAT IS A VERSE YOU DON'T

OFTEN HEAR QUOTED.

BUT IT WAS BEING QUOTED IN

THIS ELECTION AS A REASON

NOT TO VOTE FOR A

CHRISTIAN FOR GOVERNOR OF

A PROVINCE THAT INCLUDES

THE CITY OF JAKARTA.

SO THAT'S WHAT IS AT

STAKE.

AND HE SAID, DON'T LET

THEM FOOL YOU.

THE QURAN DOESN'T REALLY

SAY THAT.

YOU CAN BE A MUSLIM AND

HAVE NON-MUSLIM-ELECTED

OFFICIALS.

IT IS OKAY TO VOTE FOR A

CHRISTIAN.

BUT THE MINORITY IS COMING

VERY VIOLENTLY HERE.

AND HIS ATTORNEY IS SAYING

WE SHOULD NOT HAVE A TRIAL

BY A MOB.

AND WHAT THEY'RE

THREATENING IS TO HAVE

SOME KIND OF VIOLENCE AND

RIOTING IF HE IS NOT

CONVICTED AND SENT AWAY TO

PRISON.

THIS UNDERLINES WHAT IT IS

LIKE TO LIVE UNDER SHAR'IA

LAW.

AND CAN YOU TRULY HAVE

DEMOCRATIC FREEDOMS AT THE

SAME TIME?

THE ONLY TWO DEMOCRACIES

IN THE WORLD THAT ARE

MUSLIM, ONE IS INDONESIA,

AND THE OTHER ONE IS

TURKEY.

TURKEY IS QUICKLY MOVING

AWAY FROM DEMOCRACY AND

INTO SOME KIND OF

DICTATORSHIP.

SO THERE IS A LOT AT

STAKE.

CAN ISLAM AND DEMOCRACY

CO-EXIST SIDE BY SIDE?

CAN YOU TRULY HAVE FREEDOM

OF SPEECH, FREE ELECTIONS,

AND FREEDOM OF RELIGION?

AND WE NEED TO UNDERLINE

THERE IS A DEEP CASAM

BETWEEN JUDAISM,

CHRISTIANITY, AND ISLAM,

ON HOW YOU GOVERN

YOURSELF.

HERE IS WHAT PRESIDENT

OBAMA SAID BACK IN THE

U.N. IN 2012.

IT IS INTERESTING HE SORT

OF EQUATES IT.

HE SAYS, "THE FUTURE MUST

NOT BELONG TO THOSE WHO

SLANDER THE PROPHET OF

ISLAM."

SO HE IS SAYING WE CAN'T

HAVE ANY KIND OF SLANDER

OR BLASPHEMY AGAINST

ISLAM.

HE KNOWS FULL WELL WHAT

THAT MEANS.

IT MEANS PEOPLE GO TO

PRISON, PEOPLE GET KILLED.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS UNDER

SHAR'IA LAW IF YOU DARE TO

DO THOSE THINGS.

BUT THEN HE ADDS TO IT, TO

BE THE CREDIBLE, THOSE WHO

CONDEMN THAT SLANDER MUST

CONDEMN THOSE PEOPLE WHO

SEE JESUS CHRIST THAT ARE

CREDESECRATED, OR THE

CHURCHES THAT ARE

DESTROYED, OR THE

HOLOCAUST THAT IS DENIED.

BUT THERE IS A BIG

DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU BLAS

BLASEPHEM CHRISTIANITY OR

YOUR A HOLOCAUST DENIER,

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE

TRIED FOR THAT.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE

KILLED FOR THAT.

BUT IF YOU DARE TO TAKE ON

THE QURAN, IF YOU DARE TO

TAKE ON MUHAMMAD, WATCH

OUT.

IF YOU'RE UNDER SHAR'IA

LAW, WHAT IS CURRENTLY

HAPPENING IN INDONESIA

COULD HAPPEN TO YOU.

> WELL, HERE AT HOME,

PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD

TRUMP HAS NAMED HIS

NOMINEE FOR U.S.

AMBASSADOR TO ISRAEL.

AND MARK MY WORDS, THERE

ARE GOING TO BE SOME BIG

CHANGES WITH HIS

AMBASSADOR.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

Charlene: TRUMP MADE

THAT ANNOUNCEMENT, GORDON,

AS HE CONTINUED HIS "THANK

YOU" TOUR.

THIS TIME IN THE KEY SWING

STATES OF PENNSYLVANIA.

WHERE TRUMP WON A

SURPRISING VICTORY ON HIS

WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: SPEAKING IN

HERSHEY, PENNSYLVANIA,

TRUMP THANKED VOTERS FOR

MAKING HIM THE FIRST

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE TO WIN THE STATE

SINCE 1988.

THANK YOU TO THE

DIFFERENT PLACES WHERE WE

WON SWING STATES.

BY THE WAY, WE WON IN A

LANDSLIDE.

THIS WAS A LANDSLIDE

VICTORY.

Reporter: TRUMP'S

"THANK YOU" TOUR CONTINUES

TONIGHT IN FLORIDA AND

CONCLUDES ON SATURDAY IN

ALABAMA.

WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS CALL

IT A FACT THAT RUSSIAN

HACKING ASSISTED TRUMP'S

CAMPAIGN AGAINST HILLARY

CLINTON.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

OFFICIALS, LIKE PRESS

SECRETARY JOSH EARNEST,

SAY TRUMP MUST HAVE BEEN

AWARE OF RUSSIA'S

INTERFERENCE.

TRUMP CRITICIZED EARNEST

IN PENNSYLVANIA.

THIS FOOLISH GUY, JOSH

EARNEST -- I DON'T KNOW IF

HE IS TALKING TO PRESIDENT

OBAMA.

HAVING THE RIGHT PRESS

SECRETARY IS SO IMPORTANT.

HE IS SO BAD THE WAY HE

DELIVERS A MESSAGE.

HE CAN DELIVER A POSITIVE

MESSAGE AND IT SOUNDS BAD.

Reporter: TRUMP'S

SUPPORTERS SAY THE OUTRAGE

ABOUT RUSSIA ON THE PARTS

OF DEMOCRATS IS A PLAN TO

DISCREDIT HIS ELECTION

VICTORY.

CRITICS SAY RUSSIA DID

SOME HACKING, BUT THERE IS

NO CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE

THEY WERE TRYING TO HELP

TRUMP OR HURT CLINTON.

MEANWHILE, TRUMP NOMINATED

DAVID FRIEDMAN, A

BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY, AS

HIS AMBASSADOR TO ISRAEL.

FRIEDMAN SERVED AS ONECH ONE OF

TRUMP'S ADVISORS DURING

THE CAMPAIGN.

HE QUESTIONS THE NEED FOR

THE PALESTINIANS TO HAVE

THEIR OWN STATE.

HIS APPOINTMENT COULD LEAD

TO A TRUMP DECISION TO

MOVE THE U.S. EMBASSY FROM

TEL AVIV TO JERUSALEM.

THE FORMER ISRAELI

MINISTER SAYS TRUMP'S PLAN

TO MOVE THE U.S. EMBASSY

TO JERUSALEM IS AN

EXCELLENT IDEA.

IT IS ABOUT TIME.

WE ARE SITTING NOW IN

ISRAEL'S CAPITAL.

Reporter: MARK

MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Charlene: A FEDERAL

JURY IN SOUTH CAROLINA HAS

CONVICTED DYLANN ROOF FOR

MURDERING NINE PEOPLE IN A

CHARLESTON CHURCH LAST

YEAR.

SURVIVOR FELICIA SANDERS

SAYS EVEN THOUGH SHE

SUFFERED, SHE STILL WEARS

A SMILE ON HER FACE.

I WEAR A SMILE.

AND THE REASON I WEAR THE

SMILE IS BECAUSE IF YOU

LOOK AT THE PICTURES OF

ALL NINE, THEY ALL WORE A

BEAUTIFUL SMILE.

SO EVEN THOUGH I HAVE BEEN

THROUGH ALL THAT I HAVE

BEEN THROUGH, I STILL WEAR

A SMILE.

Charlene: THE JURY

WILL RECONVENE NEXT MONTH

TO DECIDE IF DYLANN ROOF

WILL FACE LIFE IN PRISON

OR A DEATH SENTENCE.

ROOF WILL BE HIS OWN

ATTORNEY AT THE NEXT PHASE

OF THE TRIAL.

HE FIRED HIS ATTORNEYS ON

THURSDAY.

THEY SAY HE DOESN'T WANT

THEM SHOWING EMBARRASSING

EVIDENCE THAT COULD SPARE

HIS LIFE.

> A VIRGINIA PASTOR IS

WORKING TO BRING LIFE BACK

TO HIS COMMUNITY BY

INTRODUCING THEM TO

CHRIST.

ONE PROBLEM: THE PEOPLE

THERE DON'T HAVE A VERY

POSITIVE IMAGE OF THE

CHURCH.

AS CAITLIN BURKE SHOWS US,

HE IS PARTNERING WITH CBN

TO IMPROVE THAT IMAGE BY

BRINGING HIS NEIGHBORHOOD

TOGETHER.

Reporter: TIMES

CHANGE, BUT SADLY

INSTITUTIONS OFTEN STAY

THE SAME.

THAT'S WHY PEOPLE LIVING

AROUND PARK PLACE

METHODIST CHURCH IN

NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, HAVEN'T

ALWAYS FELT WELCOME THERE.

THE TRADITION OF THIS

CHURCH HAS ALWAYS BEEN

VERY FORMAL.

AND WE HAVE AN INFORMAL

COMMUNITY THAT HAS MOVED

AROUND THE CHURCH.

SO, UNFORTUNATELY, WE HAVE

A GENERATION THAT HAS

BECOME ESTRANGED TO

CHRISTIANITY, AND

ESTRANGED TO THE CHURCH,

THEREBY.

Reporter: OVER THE

WEEKEND, PASTOR JOE

PARTNERED WITH CBN AND

OTHER SPONSORS TO THROW A

HIP-HOP BIRTHDAY FOR

JESUS, INVITING ALL OF

THEIR NEIGHBORS TO ATTEND.

WE'RE GOING TO GIVE OUT

GIFTS.

WE'RE GOING TO GIVE OUT

FOOD.

BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY,

WE'RE GOING TO CELEBRATE

THE BIRTH OF OUR LORD.

Reporter: PARK PLACE

MINISTRIES HOPES THAT

EVENTS LIKE THIS ONE WILL

HELP BRIDGE THE GAP

BETWEEN THE CHURCH AND THE

COMMUNITY.

WHEN WE FIND

CHRISTIANITY IN VARIOUS

PARTS OF THE WORLD, WE

FIND CRIME RATES LOW.

WE FIND MARRIAGES DOING

BETTER.

SO IN THEORY, WHERE CHRIST

IS WE HAVE A STRONGER

COMMUNITY.

SO THE IDEA IS TO PUT

CHRIST INTO THE COMMUNITY

AND RID OURSELVES OF A LOT

OF THE PROBLEMS THAT WE

HAVE HERE IN THIS

COMMUNITY.

Reporter: THE HIP-HOP

PARTY ALSO ALLOWED PARK

PLACE MINISTRIES TO GET A

BETTER UNDERSTANDABLY OF

THEIR COMMUNITY'S NEEDS

AND TELL THEM ABOUT NEW

OUTREACH PERHAPS.

>PROGRAMS.

OUR CHALLENGE IS TO

MEET THEM WHERE THEY ARE,

AND WITH THE HELP OF GOD,

TO GET THEM WHERE THEY

NEED TO BE.

IT IS ALWAYS GOOD TO

HAVE A CHURCH IN THE

COMMUNITY THAT IS WILLING

TO GIVE BACK TO THE

COMMUNITY.

KEEP KIDS HAPPY.

KEEP THEM OFF OF THE

STREET.

KEEP THEM OUT OF A LOT OF

THINGS THEY COULD BE

DOING.

Reporter: CBN DONATED

50 FOOD BASKETS AND

SEVERAL OTHER PRIZES.

THE MINISTRY CONTINUES TO

PARTNER WITH THEM AS IT

BRINGS CHRIST TO THE LOCAL

COMMUNITY.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS,

NORFOLK, VIRGINIA.

Charlene: AND 15

PEOPLE WHO ATTENDED THAT

EVENT CAME FORWARD TO

ACCEPT JESUS.

GORDON?

Gordon: IT IS A

WONDERFUL PROGRAM.

A WONDERFUL THING FOR THE

CHURCH TO BE KNOWN FOR

BLESSING THE COMMUNITY

THAT WE'RE IN.

I'M VERY PROUD TO BE A

PART OF THIS.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, A FORMER MISS AMERICA

WITH A STORY OF HER OWN

AND A LOVE FOR THE UNTOLD

STORY OF OTHERS.

WHAT I HOPE IS THAT

TELLING THOSE PEOPLE'S

STORIES GIVES PEOPLE THE

FAITH TO HAVE TRIALS OF

THEIR OWN AND TO HAVE

CHALLENGES, AND TO REALIZE

THAT THAT DOESN'T MEAN

THAT YOU CAN'T EVER GET TO

WHERE YOU WANT TO GO.

Terry: KRISTIN HAGLIN

TALKS ABOUT HER LATEST

PASSION, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Gordon: KRISTIN

HAGELIN SAYS SHE GREW UP

AS JUST ANOTHER GIRL FROM

THE MIDWEST.

SHE NEEDED MONEY FOR

COLLEGE, SO ON A WHIM SHE

ENTERED A BEAUTY PAGEANT.

THEN IN 2008, SHE WAS

CROWNED MISS AMERICA, AND

HER LIFE HAS NEVER BEEN

THE SAME.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS HER

STORY FROM NEW YORK.

Reporter: EVERYONE

HAS A STORY, FROM YOUR

NEIGHBOR TO THOSE

THEY FEEL ANGER AND

SADNESS AND HAPPINESS AND

JOY AND TRAGEDY AND

TRIUMPH.

AND THAT'S REALLY WHAT WE

TRY TO DO, TRY TO TELL

DIFFERENT PEOPLE'S

STORIES.

Reporter: HAGELIN'S

OWN STORY PLAYED OUT IN A

WAY SHE NEVER ANTICIPATED.

> SHE GREW UP JUST

ANOTHER GIRL FROM THE

MIDWEST.

SHE LOVED TO READ AND

WATCH MOVIES.

BUT MORE THAN ANYTHING,

SHE LOVED BALLET.

AT A VERY EARLY AGE I

FELT VERY CONNECTED TO

MUSIC.

IT WAS REALLY A WAY OF

BECOMING ONE WITH THE

MUSIC.

Reporter: AS MUCH AS

SHE LOVED IT, THE

INTENSITY AND THE

COMPETITION BEGAN TO

ISOLATE HER.

I WAS IN BALLET SEVEN

DAYS A WEEK, MOST WEEKS,

ESPECIALLY LEADING UP TO

PERFORMANCES.

YOU KNOW, IN THE BALLET

STUDIO THREE, FOUR HOURS A

DAY.

AND THURSDAY NIGHTS,

FRIDAY NIGHTS, ALL DAY

SATURDAY AND SUNDAY.

Reporter: AND SHE

BEGAN TO DEVELOP BODY

IMAGE ISSUES, WHICH LED TO

YEARS OF BATTLING AN

EATING DISORDER.

I THOUGHT I WAS JUST

DOING IT BECAUSE OF BALLET

AND THAT GOAL, BUT REALLY

DEEP DOWN, I WAS SEARCHING

FOR WORDS.

I WANTED TO BE SEEN AS

BEAUTIFUL.

I WANTED TO BE SEEN AS

SUCCESSFUL.

I DIDN'T WANT TO CAUSE

PROBLEMS FOR ANYBODY.

I WAS A PEOPLE PLEASER.

SO IF I WAS THIN AND SMALL

AND GRACEFUL AND PERFECT,

I WOULD PLEASE EVERYBODY.

Reporter: HAGELIN'S

PARENTS HELPED HER GET

TREATMENT FOR THE EATING

DISORDER.

HOWEVER, IT TOOK A

PERSONAL REVELATION FOR

HER TO CHOOSE TO FULLY

ACCEPT THE HELP.

I WAS ON A TREADMILL

AND I WAS RUNNING AND I

ALMOST BLACKED OUT.

I HAD NEVER BEEN OUT OF

CONTROL OF MY BODY BEFORE

EVER IN MY LIFE.

AND THAT KIND OF PHYSICAL

SCARE WAS HUGE FOR ME.

AND IT WAS THEN THAT JUST

OUT OF NOWHERE STARTED

COMING UP ALL OF THESE

FEELINGS THAT I HADN'T HAD

IN YEARS.

I MEAN, DREAMS OF THINGS

THAT I WANTED TO DO AND I

WANTED TO BE OUTSIDE OF

BALLET.

I WANTED TO GET MARRIED

AND HAVE KIDS AND TRAVEL

ALL OVER THE WORLD AND

LEARN ANOTHER LANGUAGE AND

TO HELP PEOPLE AND BE A

PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER

THAN MYSELF.

I REALLY REALIZED THERE

WERE VALUES THAT I HAD AND

DESIRES THAT I THAT WERE

DEEPER THAN THE EATING

DISORDER.

Reporter: SHE QUIT

BALLET, BUT SHE COULDN'T

IGNORE THE LURE OF THE

STAGE.

SHE PLANNED TO PURSUE

MUSICAL THEATER WITH

DREAMS OF BROADWAY.

BUT COLLEGE IS EXPENSIVE.

SO IN 2006 SHE COMPETED IN

HER FIRST PAGEANT, HOPING

SIMPLY TO WIN SOME

SCHOLARSHIP MONEY.

I NEVER EXPECTED TO

WIN.

ACTUALLY -- IF YOU WERE TO

BE HONEST, I DIDN'T REALLY

WANT TO WIN.

I DIDN'T THINK I WAS

QUALIFIED IN ANY WAY.

Reporter: SHE NOT

ONLY WON, SHE SOARED.

SHE WON THE TITLE OF MISS

MICHIGAN.

SUDDENLY SHE WAS ON HER

WAY TO ATLANTIC CITY AND

MISS AMERICA.

I DON'T THINK IT EVER

REALLY PUT SO MUCH

PRESSURE ON ME BECAUSE,

AGAIN, I DID NOT HAVE ANY

EXPECTATION OF WINNING.

Reporter: THEN CAME

THE NIGHT WHEN SHE KEPT

GOING FURTHER.

SHE MADE THE TOP 15 AND

THEN THE TOP 10 AND SO ON.

THAT NIGHT WAS JUST OUT

OF A DREAM.

I MEAN THERE IS REALLY NO

OTHER WAY TO DESCRIBE IT.

IT WAS LIKE I WAS WATCHING

IT HAPPEN AS IT WAS

HAPPENING OUTSIDE OF

MYSELF.

I NEVER EXPECTED MY NAME

TO BE CALLED.

I WOULD PREPARE MYSELF

BEFORE THE NEXT

ELIMINATION ROUND TO NOT

BE CALLED.

SO IF I DID, IT WOULD BE A

HUGE SURPRISE.

Reporter: FINALLY,

THE TIME CAME FOR THE

WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED.

KRISTIN HAGELIN RECEIVED

THE CROWN.

SINCE THAT MOMENT, HER

STORY HAS BEEN FULL OF

MANY DREAMS COME TRUE.

SHE HAS TRAVELLED THE

WORLD, GOTTEN MARRIED, AND

HELPED A GREAT NUMBER OF

PEOPLE.

HER LIFE ISN'T WHAT SHE

EXPECTED, BUT IT IS FULL

AND EVER-CHANGING.

THE LATEST ADDITION, HER

PODCAST WITH "FAITH WIRE."

SHE HOPES TO GIVE

LISTENERS A BRIEF WINDOW

INTO OTHER PEOPLE'S

EXPERIENCES, EXPERIENCES

THAT MAY HELP THEM WITH

THEIR OWN.

I HOPE IN TELLING THOSE

PEOPLE STORIES GIVES

PEOPLE THE SPACE TO HAVE

TRIALS OF THEIR OWN AND TO

HAVE CHALLENGES, AND TO

REALIZE THAT THAT DOESN'T

MEAN THAT YOU CAN'T EVER

GET TO WHERE YOU WANT TO

GO.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT

YOU'RE WORTHLESS.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOUR

POTENTIAL IS RUINED.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT IF

PLAN "A" DOESN'T WORK OUT,

THAT PLAN "B" ISN'T A

HUNDRED TIMES BETTER.

Reporter: OUT

AND FIND THOSE STORIES.

AND "FAITH WIRE" -- IT'S A

WAY TO GET NEW STORIES

ABOUT FAITH FROM AROUND

THE WORLD.

AND THERE IS A APP YOU CAN

HAVE,

FAITHWIRE.COMISTHEWEBSITE.

AND IT IS ALSO ON

Facebook, TWITTER, AND

INSTAGRAM.

Terry: WONDERFUL.

SHE IS A GREAT GAL.

SHE WAS A WONDERFUL

MISS AMERICA.

AND SHE, LIKE MANY, MANY

OTHERS, HAVE WON

SCHOLARSHIP MONEY TO GO ON

AND GET THE EDUCATION THEY

WANT.

KUDOS TO HER.

Gordon: ARE YOU

FRIENDS WITH ALL OF THEM?

Terry: WELL, WE ALL

STAY IN TOUCH.

I'M NOT ABLE TO DO IT

BECAUSE OF COMMITMENTS AND

THINGS --

Gordon: YOU'VE GOT A

FEW THINGS GOING ON.

Terry: AND SO DO

THAT.

BUT THEY GATHER ONCE A

YEAR.

THERE ARE QUITE A NUMBER

OF US.

YOU SHOULD SEE THE E-MAIL

LIST, WHEN IT COMES, YOU

HAVE TO SCROLL DOWN TO GET

THE MESSAGE.

A GREAT GROUP OF WOMEN.

I'M HAPPY TO BE PART OF

IT.

> UP NEXT, A DENTIST

GOES INTO CARDIAC ARREST

AND FLATLINES TWICE.

HIS HEART STOPPED

PUMPING TO THE BRAIN.

HIS KIDNEY, LIVER,

EVERYTHING WAS FAILING.

AT THAT VERY MOMENT, HE

WAS DYING.

Terry: SEE HOW A

VISION OF A CROSS LEADS

HIM TO A CHRISTMAS

MIRACLE, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Terry: EVERY

CHRISTMAS IS NOW THE BEST

CHRISTMAS FOR DR. BUTCH

GUTHRIE AND THAT'S BECAUSE

HE IS JUST GRATEFUL TO BE

ALIVE.

THREE YEARS AGO, DURING

THE HOLIDAYS, BUTCH WAS IN

A BATTLE FOR HIS LIFE.

Reporter: ON NOVEMBER

NOVEMBER 29 OF 2013,

DR. BUTCH GUTHRIE, A

67-YEAR-OLD DENTIST,

WALKED INTO THE MERGE VE EMERGENCY

ROOM AT VIRGINIA BEACH

HOSPITAL.

I WAS HAVING INTENSE

GASTRIC DISTRESS AND

DISCOMFORT.

Reporter: THE PAIN

HAD STARTED A MONTH

EARLIER, REMNANCE OF A

COLD HE PICKED UP THAT

FALL.

BY THANKSGIVING, IT HAD

BECOME UNBEARABLE.

HIS WIFE, SANDY, WAS

CONCERNED.

HE COULDN'T DO

ANYTHING.

HE WAS LYING ON THE FLOOR

MOST OF THE TIME.

Reporter: THE

ATTENDING PHYSICIAN KEPT

HIM OVERNIGHT TO RUN

TESTS.

BUTCH ASSURED SANDY HE

WOULD BE OKAY.

I TOLD HER TO GO HOME

AND TAKE CARE OF THE DOGS.

I WOULD SEE HER SATURDAY

MORNING.

Reporter: BUT

SOMETHING WENT WRONG.

WHEN I WALKED IN THE

ROOM, THE ROOM WAS FULL OF

PEOPLE.

AND I HEARD, HEART'S

FAILING, KIDNEYS' FAILING,

LIVER'S FAILING.

WE'RE TAKING HIM TO I.C.U.

Reporter: BUTCH WAS

IN CARDIAC ARREST AND HAD

TO BE FLOWN TO NORFOLK,

VIRGINIA, JUST 20 MILES

AWAY.

I WAS ASKING FOR GOD TO

INTERVENE IN THIS

SITUATION.

I WAS NOT READY TO LOSE A

HUSBAND.

Reporter: EN ROUTE,

HE FLATLINED TWICE AND HAD

TO BE RESUSCITATED.

HIS HEART STOPPED

PUMPING.

HIS BRAIN, HIS KIDNEY, HIS

LIVER, EVERYTHING WAS

FAILING.

HE WAS DYING.

AT THAT VERY MOMENT, HE

WAS DYING.

Reporter: THEY PUT

BUTCH ON ECMO, A LIFE

SUPPORT SYSTEM USED ONLY

AS A LAST RESORT.

PROLONGED USE COULD HAVE

SEVERE COMPLICATIONS, BUT

WITHOUT IT, HE WOULD DIE.

IN HIS CASE, WE WAITED

SEVEN DAYS.

AT SEVEN DAYS, HE STILL

WAS NOT RECOVERING.

MORE IMPORTANTLY, HIS

BRAIN AND KIDNEY -- THOSE

WERE NOT RECOVERING.

Reporter: THE DOCTORS

RESUMED BUTCH HAD A VIRAL

INFECTION AND GAVE HIM A

5% CHANCE OF SURVIVAL, AND

RECOMMENDED THAT SANDY

HAVE HER HUSBAND TAKEN OFF

LIFE SUPPORT.

ONE DOCTOR LEANED

FORWARD, AND HE SAID, "ARE

YOU UNDERSTANDING

EVERYTHING WE ARE SAYING?"

AND I SAID, YES, I

UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING

YOU'VE SAID.

HOWEVER, I BELIEVE IN

MIRACLES.

Reporter: THAT'S

BECAUSE EIGHT YEARS

EARLIER, SANDY WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH STAGE FOUR

UTERINE CANCER.

BUT THROUGH PRAYER AND

GOD'S GRACE, SHE WAS

HEALED.

AND I TOLD HER I WAS

EXPECTING GOD TO PERFORM

ANOTHER MIRACLE FOR MY

HUSBAND.

THEY PROBABLY THOUGHT I

WAS IN DENIAL OR I WAS A

RELIGIOUS FANATIC.

BUT, YOU KNOW, THERE COMES

A POINT IN TIME WHEN YOU

HAVE TO DECIDE WHO'S

OPINION IS MORE IMPORTANT,

GOD OR MAN'S.

Reporter: USING EVERY

MEANS POSSIBLE, SANDY

ASKED HER CHURCH, FAMILY,

THE CBN PRAYER CENTER, AND

PRENDFRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD

FOR PRAYER.

FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS,

SHE STAYED BY HER

HUSBAND'S SIDE PRAYING AND

READING THE BIBLE TO HIM.

I BELIEVE HE COULD

HEAR.

I BELIEVE HIS SPIRIT COULD

HEAR.

Reporter: IT TURNS

OUT SHE WAS RIGHT.

IN FACT, BUTCH HEARD THE

DOCTORS' DISCUSSIONS ABOUT

TAKING HIM OFF LIFE

SUPPORT.

I BECAME SOMEWHAT

ANXIOUS AND I STARTED

PRAYING.

I WAS PRAYING THAT GOD

WOULD RAISE UP A PERSON ON

A MEDICAL STAFF THAT WOULD

HAVE MY BACK.

AND I PRAYED AND I PRAYED.

AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN I

RECEIVED A VISION.

I SAW NOTHING BUT SAND.

AND THEN I SAW A CROSS,

AND IT CAME DOWN AND IT

STUCK IN THE SAND.

Reporter: THEN A

GROUP OF DOCTORS APPEARED.

ONE OF THEM STARTED

BACKING AWAY FROM THE REST

UNTIL HIS BACK WAS

TOUCHING THE COURTHOUSE.

CROSS.

I SAID, WOW, WHOEVER

THAT IS, THEY'VE GOT MY

BACK, BUT GOD HAS GOT

THEIR BACK.

Reporter: THAT PERSON

WAS CARDIAC SURGEON GABOR,

WHO, LIKE SANDY, WASN'T

READY TO GIVE UP.

YES, I WAS SUPPORTING

HER.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE SHE

UNDERSTOOD THAT THE

SITUATION WAS VERY GRIM.

I CAN LOOK AT REALITY,

BUT I CHOOSE TO LOOK AT

SUPER REALITY.

Reporter: THE DOCTOR

SUGGESTED A PROCEDURE THAT

IS RARELY ATTEMPTED.

IT IS MAKING AN

ARTIFICIAL HOLE BETWEEN

THE LEFT AND RIGHT SIDE OF

THE HEART.

Reporter: HE

PERFORMED THE SURGERY AND

IT APPEARED TO BE

SUCCESSFUL, BUT THE ONLY

WAY TO KNOW FOR SURE WAS

TO TAKE BUTCH OFF OF LIFE

SUPPORT.

IT CAN GO EITHER WAY,

BUT HE CANNOT BE

MAINTAINED ON THAT MACHINE

ANY LONGER.

THERE ARE TOO MANY RISKS

INVOLVED.

THERE WERE NO OTHER

OPTIONS, OTHER THAN TO

GIVE HIM A CHANCE TO

BREATHE ON HIS OWN.

Reporter: IT TOOK

ONLY MINUTES TO FIND OUT.

IT WAS INCREDIBLE.

HE MADE IT.

AND THE ONE GREATEST

BELIEVER IN HIM WAS HIS

WIFE.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD CAN

DO ANYTHING.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR

HIM.

Reporter: WHILE IN

RECOVERY, BUTCH REMEMBERS

WHAT HE TOLD DR. BAGAMARI.

AND I SAID, I KNOW ALL

ABOUT YOU.

I SAID, I PRAYED THAT GOD

WOULD RAISE UP SOMEBODY ON

THE STAFF WHO WOULD HAVE

MY BACK, AND HE CHOSE YOU.

AND HE USED YOU IN A

MIGHTY WAY.

Reporter: THE DOCTOR

WOULD AGREE.

I ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT

GOD HELPED ME.

Reporter: BUTCH AND

SANDY CELEBRATED CHRISTMAS

THAT YEAR IN THE HOSPITAL.

THEN ONLY THREE MONTHS

LATER, BUTCH WAS BACK AT

HIS DENTAL PRACTICE AND IS

STILL GOING STRONG.

AS FOR THE STAFF AT THE

HOSPITAL, THEY STILL CALL

BUTCH THE CHRISTMAS

MIRACLE.

BECAUSE IT WAS REALLY A

MIRACLE.

AT AGE 67 HIS HEART

COMPLETELY RECOVERED AND

HIS KIDNEY RECOVERED, AND

NOW HE IS LIVING WITH HIS

OWN HEART AND DOESN'T NEED

A TRANSPLANT.

I AM OVERWHELMED BY THE

LOVE OF GOD AND THE GRACE

THAT HE HAS SHOWN ME,

COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED.

Terry:

UNDERSTANDABLY.

AND THE GRACE AND THE LOVE

THAT HE SHOWED TO BUTCH,

GOD SHOWS TO YOU AS WELL.

AND WE WANT TO PRAY FOR

YOU TODAY.

MANY, MANY OF YOU THIS

HOLIDAY SEASON, I KNOW

HAVE SPECIFIC REQUESTS.

MANY OF YOU HAVE SENT THEM

INTO US.

WE WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT

TO MENTION SOME.

SOMEONE SAYS, "PLEASE PRAY

FOR THE RINGING IN MY LEFT

EAR TO STOP."

SOMEONE ELSE SAYING, I

NEED TO BE DELIVERED FROM

INSOMNIA.

Gordon: AND HERE IS

ONE, HEALING FOR MY LUNGS,

BREATHING.

MY HUSBAND WITH COLON

CANCER.

AND THEN, "HEAL OUR FAMILY

RELATIONSHIPS."

AS I'M WATCHING THAT

STORY, HERE IS SOMETHING

FOR YOU, HERE IS SOMEONE

WHO HAS YOUR BACK.

REALIZE JESUS EVER LIVES

TO GIVE INDECE INTERCESSION FOR

YOU.

START THINKING ABOUT THAT.

THINK ABOUT JESUS RIGHT

NOW, AT THE RIGHT HAND OF

THE FATHER.

WHO IS HE PRAYING FOR?

WHO IS HE INTERCEDING FOR?

HE IS PRAYING FO FOR YOU.

SO LET'S JOIN IN WITH THAT

PRAYER.

LET'S BELIEVE THAT PRAYER.

AND LET'S REALIZE HE HAS

OUR BACK.

HE IS CONSTANTLY WATCHING

OVER US.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE IT.

THAT'S IT.

IT'S VERY SIMPLE.

IT'S SO SIMPLE A CHILD CAN

UNDERSTAND IT.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE NEED,

THAT VERY CHILD-LIKE

FAITH.

DADDY HAS PROMISED.

IT IS TRUE.

I CAN RELY ON IT.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THE

NEEDS OF THE AUDIENCE TO

YOU.

AND AS PEOPLE ARE PRAYING

AND ASKING FOR MIRACLES,

ASKING FOR YOU TO

INTERVENE, FOR YOU TO

STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND TO

DO MIGHTY MIRACLES, WE

JUST ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT

IS ALREADY FINISHED, IT'S

ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED.

FOR BY YOUR STRIPES, WE

ARE HEALED.

NOW, LORD, GIVE US THE

FAITH TO BELIEVE.

LET US SEE IT, FOR WE LOOK

TO YOU, THE AUTHOR AND THE

FINISHER OF OUR FAITH.

WE LOOK TO YOU, PRAYING

FOR US RIGHT NOW.

YOU'RE AT THE RIGHT HAND

OF THE FATHER.

YOU EVER LIVE TO GIVE

INTERCESSION FOR US.

SO WE COME INTO YOUR

PRAYER.

WE COME INTO YOUR

PRESENCE.

AND WE RECEIVE THE HEALING

WE NEED.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU HAVE

AN EXTRAORDINARILY PAINFUL

RIGHT SHOULDER.

IT IS AGONY FOR YOU.

AND GOD HAS HEARD YOUR

CRY.

HE IS REACHING DOWN NOW

AND JUST RESTORING

EVERYTHING.

YOU JUST FELT SOMETHING GO

THROUGH THAT WHOLE JOINT.

WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO

BEFORE, DO NOW.

RAISE YOUR HANDS TO HIM

AND PRAISE HIM FOR WHAT HE

JUST DID FOR YOU.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU'VE GOT

EXTREME ARTHRITIS, AND IT

IS PRIMARILY IN YOUR RIGHT

HAND, BUT IT AFFECTS BOTH

HANDS.

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR

YOU TO DO JUST THE SIMPLE

THINGS, LIKE BUTTONING A

BUTTON.

GOD HAS HEARD YOUR PRAYER.

JUST OPEN UP YOUR HANDS.

STRETCH FORTH YOUR HANDLES

AND RECEIVE NEW MOBILITY.

EVERYTHING WILL BE NORMAL

WITH BOTH HANDS, IN JESUS'

NAME.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU'VE BEEN

PRAYING FOR YEARS FOR A

CHILD, AND YOU DON'T EVEN

KNOW YOU'RE PREGNANT, BUT

YOU ARE.

GOD HAS ANSWERED YOUR

PRAYERS.

I'M GOING TO REJOICE FOR

YOU UNTIL YOU FIND OUT.

Gordon: THERE SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE A PINCHED

NERVE IN YOUR NECK, AND IT

IS CAUSING A SHOOTING PAIN

INTO THE RIGHT SIDE OF

YOUR NECK INTO YOUR

SHOULDER.

GOD HAS HEALED THAT.

IT'S LIKE THE WHOLE NECK

JUST STRETCHED.

AND ALL OF THE DISKS ARE

COMING INTO PLACE.

NO MORE PRESSURE ON

NERVES.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE HEALED.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE WITH BONE

ISSUES, JUST HAVING

TROUBLE HEALING FROM

THINGS.

YOU ARE BEING MADE WHOLE

IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: LORD, WE

THANK YOU, FOR YOU CAME

FOR US.

YOU LEFT HEAVEN, YOU TOOK

ON A FORM.

YOU DELVE DWELLED IN TIME.

AND THEN YOU SACRIFICED

YOURSELF FOR US.

WE THANK YOU FOR IT.

WE RECEIVE IT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE'RE

HERE FOR YOU.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU 24

HOURS A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A

WEEK.

IT IS OUR HONOR, OUR

PRIVILEGE TO PRAY FOR YOU.

SO IF YOU NEED PRAYER, ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK UP

A PHONE AND CALL.

1-800-700-7001-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, THE U.S. OLYMPIC

WOMEN'S SHOT PUT GOLD

MEDALLIST?

IS ABOUT THE SIZE OF A

NEWBORN BABY.

Terry: MICHELLE

CARTER TELLS WHERE SHE

GETS HER EXPLOSIVE POWER,

AND WHY SHE IS KNOWN AS

THE SHOT DIVA.

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

A TEXAS JUDGE HAS ORDERED

THAT A SCHOOL DISTRICT

RESTORE A DECORATION FROM

THE CHARLIE BROWN

CHRISTMAS MOVIE.

THE DISTRICT PREVIOUSLY

ORDERED THAT IT BE TAKEN

DOWN, FEARING IT VIOLATED

PROHIBITIONS ON RELIGION

IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

IT INCLUDES A BIBLE VERSE

RECITED BY LINUS IN "A

CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS."

IT SHOWS THE CHARACTER

LINUS READING THE STORY OF

THE BIRTH OF CHRIST,

SAYING "FOR UNTO YOU IS

BORN THIS DAY IN THE CITY

OF DAVID, A SAVIOR, WHICH

IS CHRIST THE LORD.

THAT'S WHAT CHRISTMAS IS

ALL ABOUT, CHARLIE BROWN."

TEXAS ATTORNEY-GENERAL KIM

PAXTON SAYS THE STATE'S

MERRY CHRISTMAS LAW MEANS

THAT SCHOOLS CANNOT,

QUOTE,"SILENCE A BIBLICAL

REFERENCE TO CHRISTMAS."

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

HELPING A FAMILY IN PERU

HAVE A BETTER CHRISTMAS

THIS YEAR BY STARTING A

NEW BUSINESS.

ROSIO IS FROM PERU, WHERE

SHE RUNS A SMALL

RESTAURANT WITH HER

HUSBAND.

BUT THE FAMILY BARELY HAD

MONEY TO EAT.

SHE STARTED HELPING WITH

"OPERATION BLESSING'S"

POULTRY FARMING PROGRAM AT

THE SCHOOL, AND THE STAFF

HELPED HER START HER OWN

BUSINESS RAISING AND

SELLING CHICKENS.

AND SHE HAS BEEN ABLE TO

PROVIDE FOOD AND CHRISTMAS

SHE LOVES "SUPERBOOK" AND

WHAT IT MEANS TO REPENT.

IT MEANS TO TURN AWAY

FROM YOUR EVIL WAYS AND

STOP ALL OF YOUR VIOLENCE

AND TURN BACK TO GOD.

Wendy: ADDIE WASN'T

THE ONLY ONE LEARNING.

I WAS VERY IMPRESSED,

QUITE HONESTLY.

ADDIE AND TO LEARN WITH

HER AS WELL AS TO SEE HER

CARTER IS A VIBRANT WOMAN

WHO IS A PROFESSIONAL

MAKEUP ARTIST KNOWN AS THE

SHOT DIVA.

AND SHE'S ALSO AN OLYMPIC

CHAMPION ON A PERSONAL

CRUSADE TO EMPOWER FEMALE

ATHLETES, WOMEN, AND

YOUTH.

TOM BURING TALKED WITH

MICHELLE ABOUT HER PURPOSE

AND HER PASSION.

I KNOW THAT GOD IS

INTENTIONAL WITH

EVERYTHING THAT HE BRINGS

TO ME AND WHAT HE DOES FOR

ME.

I'M NOT HERE JUST TO BE

HERE.

MICHELLE CARTER

FINISHEFINISHTHIS SENTENCE: GOD MADE

ME...

WITH A PURPOSE.

AND TO DO SHOT PUT, FOR

SURE.

Reporter: MICHELLE

CARTER'S WIN THRUSTED HER

TO THE FOREFRONT OF SHOT

PUT'S SUCCESS.

AND IT CAME WITH SUSPENCE

ON HER SIXTH AND FINAL

MEET.

I HAD 16 TO 20 YEARS OF

WORK FOR THAT ONE THROW.

I SAID, OKAY, LORD, YOU

TOLD ME I HAVE A VICTORY,

SO THIS IS THE TIME TO

SHOW ME.

I'M GOING TO GIVE IT ALL

THAT I HAVE, BUT THIS IS

MY LAST THROW IN THE

OLYMPICS.

I PRAYED THAT REAL QUICK.

GOT REFOCUSED.

WALKED UP TO THE GREEN,

AND THEN I JUST THREW.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

IT WAS THE FURTHEST I HAD

EVER THROWN.

Reporter: 67 FEET, 8

AND A QUARTER INCHES.

HER DAD, A SHOT PUT

MEDALLIST AND THREE TIME

SUPER BOWL CHAMPION IS

ALSO MICHELLE'S COACH.

FOR THE SHOT PUT, OF

COURSE YOU NEED TO HAVE

STRENGTH, BUT YOU NEED TO

HAVE SPEED.

MY SHOT PUT IS ABOUT THE

SIZE OF A NEWBORN BABY.

YOU GET SET UP, AND YOU

THROW.

YOU NEED TO HAVE EXPLOSIVE

POWER.

YOU NEED TO MOVE YOUR FEET

QUICK AND BE IN THE RIGHT

PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME.

YOU HAVE TO BE AN OVERALL

ATHLETE.

Reporter: FOR

MICHELLE, THE PHRASE "IN

SHAPE" OPENS A DIALOGUE

ABOUT BODY SHAPE AND BODY

IMAGES, A SUBJECT ON WHICH

MICHELLE CRUSADES TO

ENCOURAGE FEMALE ATHLETES,

WOMEN, AND YOUTH.

I THINK ACCEPTING YOUR

BODY IMAGE IS VERY

IMPORTANT.

BECAUSE THERE ARE IMAGES

PUT OUT IN THE MEDIA AND

IN YOUR FACE EVERY DAY,

THAT YOU NEED TO LOOK A

CERTAIN KIND OF WAY AND IT

WILL TAKE YOU FAR IN LIFE.

BUT GOD HAS CREATED YOU

THE WAY YOU ARE CREATED

BECAUSE THERE IS A JOB

SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU.

TO THROW A SHOT PUT, FOR

SURE, THAT'S WHAT I'M

CREATED TO DO.

SO I'M LARGER THAN THE

AVERAGE WOMAN.

AND I'M OKAY WITH THAT.

I HAVE EMBRACED IT.

Reporter: AND NOT

ONLY HAS SHE EMBRACED, SHE

IS INFLUENCING HER

COLLEAGUES.

I THROW THE SHOT PUT,

AND PEOPLE EXPECT ME TO

LOOK LIKE SOMEBODY LIKE

HELGA AND NOT PUT ON

MAKEUP.

I CAN ACTUALLY DRESS UP OR

BRING MY FEMININITY IN AND

MY OWN FLARE AND STYLE AND

STILL BE GREAT AT WHAT I

DO AND IT'S OKAY.

WE'RE CREATED DIFFERENT.

TO BE UNIQUE.

Reporter: SUCCESS

ASIDE, HER FLARE HAS MADE

MICHELLE A SHOT-PUTTING

PIONEER.

AND SHE IS A PROFESSIONAL

MAKEUP ARTIST KNOWN AS

"THE SHOT DIVA."

I ALWAYS BELIEVE IF YOU

LOOK GOOD, YOU FEEL GOOD,

YOU DO GOOD.

FOR ME, GETTING READY FOR

A COMPETITION, I'M DOING

MY HAIR, MY NAILS ARE

PAINTED, I'M PUTTING ON MY

MAKEUP.

WHEN I STEP IN THAT

CIRCLE, I'M FREE TO DO

GOOD.

Reporter: WHAT IS THE

MUST-HAVE FOR YOU THAT

YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE ON?

MY EYELASHES.

I HAVE TO HAVE THOSE ON.

THAT COMPLETES THE LOOK

FOR ME.

FASHION AND BRUTAL IS A

REFLECTION OF WHABRUTEBEAUTY IS AREFLECTIO N OF WHO YOU ARE.

I CAN WALK IN A ROOM OF

PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT KNOW

CHRIST, AND I CAN STILL BE

MYSELF.

AND THEY CAN STILL SEE

CHRIST IN ME.

I'M CARRYING THAT WITH ME.

Reporter: WHERE DO

YOU SEE BEAUTY IN THE SHOT

PUT?

THERE IS A MESSAGE TO

THE MADNESS.

DOWN TO EVEN A QUARTER OF

A SECOND OF WHAT HAS TO

HAPPEN DOWN TO THE LAST

SECOND.

IF YOU RELY ON YOUR

STRENGTH, IT IS ONLY GOING

TO TAKE YOU SO FAR.

BUT IF YOU RELY ON GOD, HE

CAN BACK US AND WORK

THINGS FOR US.

HE IS IN CONTROL OF

EVERYTHING.

AND GIVING THAT POWER BACK

TO HIM MAKES MY JOB

EASIER.

Reporter: SHOT PUT

WONDER MICHELLE CARTER

CARRIES MORE THAN A MEDAL

AND MESSAGE, RELISHING THE

FREEDOM TO EMBRACE HERSELF

WITH A LOVE THAT IS

GREATER THAN GOLD.

WHAT I ADMIRE MOST

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST IS HIS

LOVE.

HIS LOVE SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING.

AND GOD SAYS IT WAS

CREATED IN HIS IMAGE.

AND YOU'RE WHO GOD CREATED

YOU TO BE.

Terry: WHAT A GREAT

MESSAGE SHE CARRIES FOR

ALL OF US.

WE WERE CREATED

SPECIFICALLY WITH PURPOSE

IN MIND.

AND GOD WORD SAYS THAT HE

SAW US IN THE DARKNESS OF

THE HIDDEN PLACE, WHILE WE

WERE BEING FORMED, BEFORE

WE WERE EVER BORN.

AMAZING.

Gordon: A WONDERFUL

STORY.

A WONDERFUL WOMAN.

Terry: A GREAT GAL

WITH A GOOD MESSAGE FOR

ALL OF US.

LOVE WHO YOU ARE.

Gordon: WELL, WE
