Wendy: COMING UP, A

CHRISTIAN REVIVAL IN

COMMUNIST CHINA.

THIS WAS THE COMPLETELY

NEW FOR US.

Wendy: INSIDE

GOVERNMENT-SANCTIONED

CHURCHES.

IT MEANS CHRIST HAS

DECIDED TO PLAY AN ACTIVE

ROLE IN CHINESE SOCIETY.

Wendy: PLUS, A BOY

BORN WITH NO EYES WHO

TOUCHED THE HEARTS OF

MILLIONS.

> AND THEN AN ESCAPE

FROM SATANIC ABUSE.

I FELT LIKE I WAS

LIVING A CONSTANT HORROR

MOVIE.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

YOU KNOW, NANCY PELOSI,

THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE,

SAID, WE'VE GOT TO PASS

THIS BILL TO SEE WHAT'S IN

IT.

SHE HADN'T READ IT.

IT WAS 2600 OR 2700 2700 PAGE,

AND SHE HADN'T READ IT ALL

THE WAY THROUGH, AND SO WE

HAVE TO PASS IT SO WE CAN

FIND OUT WHAT'S IN IT.

IT HAS BEEN A DISASTER.

YOU REMEMBER THE PRESIDENT

FAMOUSLY SAYING, IF YOU

LIKE YOUR DOCTOR, YOU CAN

KEEP HIM, AND IF YOU LIKE

YOUR HEALTH CARE, YOU CAN

KEEP IT -- TOTAL LIES.

THIS THING WAS PASSED

WITHOUT ONE SINGLE

REPUBLICAN VOTE.

EVERY VOTE WAS DEMOCRATIC.

SO DONALD TRUMP HAS SAID,

LOOK, MAKE SURE THAT THOSE

PEOPLE OWN IT BECAUSE IT

IS THEIRS.

IT WAS A DISASTER.

THE PEOPLE'S PREMIUMS WENT

UP.

THE NUMBER OF HEALTH

PROVIDERS COLLAPSED.

THE EXCHANGES WEREN'T

WORKING.

IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE

DISASTER, AND PEOPLE HATED

IT.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE

REASONS DONALD TRUMP WAS

ELECTED.

HE SAYS, MAKE SURE THAT

THE DEMOCRATS OWN IT, BUT

WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING

TO REPEAL IT.

CONGRESS IS WORKING VERY

HARD TO -- FIRST OF ALL,

THEY'VE GOT TO REPEAL THE

WHOLE LAW AND THEN COME

BACK WITH A SUBSTITUTE.

I'M NOT SURE THEY'VE GOT

IT ALL TOGETHER YET, BUT

THEY'RE TRYING VERY HARD.

THAT SEEMS TO BE NUMBER

ONE AND THEIR AGENDA.

TERRY?

Terry: THAT'S NOT THE

ONLY FIGHT ON THE HORIZON.

DEMOCRATS ARE SAYING THEY

COULD CHALLENGE TRUMP ON

HIS SUPREME COURT NOMINEE.

Heather: VICE

PRESIDENT-ELECT MIKE PENCE

WENT TO CAPITOL HILL.

THE FIRST ORDER OF

BUSINESS IS TO REPEAL AND

REPLACE OBAMACARE.

Reporter: EVEN THE

PRESIDENT MADE A RARE

VISIT TO CAPITOL HILL TO

FIRE UP HIS PARTY TO

DEFEND HIS SIGNATURE

HEALTH CARE LAW.

DEMOCRATS DON'T HAVE THE

VOTES TO BLOCK A REPEAL,

SO THEY'RE TRYING TO RALLY

PUBLIC OPINION.

THEIR MAIN CHARGE: THAT A

REPEAL WOULD LEAD TO

HEALTH CARE CHAOS.

THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT

TO PUT IN PLACE OF THE

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT.

FOR YEARS THEY'VE TALKED

ABOUT REPEAL, BUT FOR FIVE

YEARS NOW THEY HAVE HAD

NOTHING TO PUT IN ITS

PLACE.

WE HAVE A PLAN TO

REPLACE IT.

WE HAVE PLENTY OF IDEAS TO

REPLACE IT.

YOU'LL SEE AS THE WEEKS

AND MONTHS UNFOLD, WHAT

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

Heather: AND THE

PRESIDENT-ELECT WEIGHED IN

VIA TWITTER, SAYING THAT

THE REPUBLICANS MUST BE

CAREFUL IN THAT THE DEMS

OWN THE FATAL OBAMACARE

DISASTER, WITH ITS POOR

COVERAGE AND MASSIVE

PREMIUM INCREASE, LIKE THE

116% HIKE IN ARIZONA.

AND ALSO DEDUCTIBLES ARE

SO HIGH IT IS PRACTICALLY

USELESS.

DON'T LET THE SCHUMER

CLOWNS OUT OF THIS WEB."

AND TRUMP IS WORKING ON A

PLAN TO RESTRUCTURE THE

OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR OF

THE NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE.

THE "WALL STREET JOURNAL"

REPORTS TRUMP BELIEVES THE

AGENCY HAS BECOME BLOATED

AND POLITICIZED.

HE HAS TURNED TO SOCIAL

MEDIA TO TAKE ON U.S.

INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES.

HE IS AT ODDS WITH THEM

OVER THEIR INVESTIGATION

INTO THE HACKING OF THE

DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL

COMMITTEE E-MAILS.

TRUMP SUPPORTS WikiLEAKS

FOUNDER JULIAN ASSANGE WHO

SAYS RUSSIA DID NOT GIVE

HIM THE STOLEN E-MAILS.

BUT MANY TOP INTELLIGENCE

OFFICIALS DISAGREE.

AND DEMOCRATS ARE WARNING

TRUMP COULD FACE BIG-TIME

PAYBACK.

TAKE ON THE

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE,

AND THEY HAVE SIX WAYS

FROM SUNDAY AT GETTING

BACK AT YOU.

EVEN FOR A HARD-NOSED

BUSINESSMAN, HE IS BEING

DUMB TO DO THIS.

Heather: AND THEY ARE

PROMISING TO FIGHT TRUMP'S

NOMINEE TO THE SUPREME

COURT.

SAYING IF THEY DON'T

APPOINT SOMEBODY WHO IS

REALLY GOOD, WE'RE GOING

TO OPPOSE HIM TOOTH AND

NAIL.

AND SCHUMER ALSO TALKED

ABOUT FIGHTING TO SIMPLY

LEAVE THAT SUPREME COURT

VACANCY UNFILLED.

JUST LAST YEAR HE ATTACKED

REPUBLICANS FOR BLOCKING A

VOTE ON OBAMA'S NOMINEE TO

THE HIGH COURT, EVEN

THOUGH IT WAS AN ELECTION

YEAR, WHEN SUPREME COURT

VOTES USUALLY DON'T

HAPPEN.

WHAT IS CLEAR IS DEMOCRATS

ARE PREPARED TO OPPOSE

REPUBLICANS ON A VARIETY

OF ISSUES, WHICH COULD

MAKE WASHINGTON'S ALREADY

DEVISIVE POLITICS EVEN

WORSE IN THE MONTHS AHEAD.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, HEATHER.

HARRY REID, WHEN HE WAS

MAJORITY LEADER OF THE

SENATE, PUT THROUGH WHAT

WAS CALLED THE NUCLEAR

OPTION.

HE SAID, WE'RE GOING TO

JAM THROUGH A MEASURE THAT

DOES AWAY WITH THE

FILIBUSTER ON LOWER COURT

NOMINEES AND ON OTHER

BUDGET ISSUES.

THEY JAMMED IT THROUGH THE

SENATE, AND SO THE SENATE

IS NOW OPERATING ON A

DIFFERENT SET OF RULES.

WE HAVE A MAN NAMED

MITCHELL McCONNELL, WHO

IS THE MAJORITY LEADER OF

THE SENATE IN THIS NEW

SENATE.

HE IS A VERY SMART

TACTICTACTICS, AND I BELIEVE THE

REPUBLICANS CAN DO EXACTLY

WHAT THE DEMOCRATS DID.

THEY CAN SAY, WE'RE GOING

TO PUT THROUGH OUR SUPREME

COURT NOMINEE, AND WE'VE

BEEN NICE TO YOU.

YOU'VE GOT SEWE SOTOMAYOR, AND

WE PUT THEM THROUGH THE

SUPREME COURT.

AND IF WE HAVE NOMINEES

AND YOU REFUSE TO DO IT,

WE'RE GOING TO USE THE

NUCLEAR ACTION ON THIS.

THERE WERE A COUPLE OF

MAJOR ISSUES THAT WERE

BEFORE THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE.

ONE WAS OBAMACARE, WHICH

WAS TERRIBLE.

AND THE SECOND HAD TO DO

WITH THE SUPREME COURT.

SO MANY PEOPLE WERE

CONCERNED ABOUT THE COURTS

AND WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF

HILLARY CLINTON GOT IN.

SO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

HAVE SPOKEN ON THIS ONE.

AND THE REPUBLICANS HAVE

GOT TO LISTEN.

THOSE IN CONGRESS, THEY'VE

GOT TO HANG TOUGH ON THIS

ONE.

AND CERTAINLY IN THE LOWER

COURT, TRUMP HAS OVER 100

POTENTIAL POSITIONS THAT

CAN BE FILLED WITH

DISTRICT COURT AND CIRCUIT

COURT NOMINEES.

IT IS A MAJOR OPPORTUNITY.

AND THE REPUBLICANS IN THE

SENATE HAVE GOT TO GET

WITH HIM ON THAT ONE.

> WELL, THE REPUBLICANS

IN CONGRESS ARE ALSO

RECOMMENDING A KEY BUDGET

CUT, STOPPING YOUR TAX

DOLLARS FROM GOING TO

PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT

STORY.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

A REPUBLICAN HOUSE PANEL

CREATED TO INVESTIGATE

PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND THE

SALE OF FETAL TISSUE IS

ASKING CONGRESS TO STOP

GIVING THE ABORTION GIANT

TAXPAYER MONEY.

THE PANEL'S REPORT ACCUSES

PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF

VIOLATING FEDERAL LAWS.

IT SAYS THE ORGANIZATION

ALTERED ABORTION

PROCEDURES TO OBTAIN THE

TISSUE OF UNBORN BABIES

THAT WOULD LATER BE SOLD.

A MEMBER OF THE PANEL,

CONGRESSWOMAN DIANE BLACK,

SAID THE PANEL'S

FACT-FINDING INVESTIGATION

HAS LAID BARE A GRISLY

PROCEDURE OF AN ABORTION

INDUSTRY.

Pat: YOU REMEMBER

WHEN WE WERE TALKING ABOUT

SOME KIND OF BUDGET

RECONCILIATION, AND OBAMA

WAS PRESIDENT.

AND THE ONE THING HE SAID

IS, I'M GOING TO STAND BY

PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

I'M GOING TO MAKE SURE

THEY GET THEIR AP PROPE

APPROPRIATION, AND I'M

GOING TO SHUT THE

GOVERNMENT DOWN IF YOU

WANT TO TAKE THAT AWAY

FROM THEM.

AND HILLARY CLINTON MADE

THE SAME KIND OF

STATEMENT.

IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE HOW

FAR SHE WENT IN DEFENDING

PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD

SHOULDN'T BE GETTING

$500 MILLION OF FEDERAL

DOLLARS.

THEY SHOULDN'T BE DOING

IT.

IT IS A PRIVATE

ORGANIZATION, AND THEY

HAVE RIGHTS LIKE EVERYBODY

ELSE, BUT THEY CERTAINLY

DON'T HAVE A RIGHT AT THE

FEDERAL FINANCIAL TROUGH,

TO PICK UP A HALF BILLION

DOLLARS A YEAR.

John: A NEW

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

PROPOSED BY TED CRUZ AND

RHONDA SANCHEZ WOULD

IMPOSE TERM LIMITS ON

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.

IT WOULD RESTRICT THE

MEMBERS IN THE HOUSE TO

THREE TWO-YEAR TERMS AND

SENATORS TO SIX THREE-YEAR

TERMS.

EVEN THOUGH THE MEASURE IS

NOT LIKELY TO PASS, POLLS

HAVE SHOWN THE PUBLIC

APPROVES OF THE IDEA OF

TERM LIMITS.

> WELL, A 6-YEAR-OLD

FLORIDA BOY AMAZED HIS

PARENTS WHEN HE ASKED TO

HAVE THE GOSPEL PREACHED

AT HIS BIRTHDAY PARTY.

MARK MARTIN BRINGS US THIS

STORY WHO ALREADY HAS A

BIG HEART FOR SOULS.

Reporter: 6-YEAR-OLD

JACOBY WANTED A SUPER HERO

BIRTHDAY PARTY, AND HIS

PARENTS GRANTED THAT WISH.

BUT THAT WASN'T ALL HE

ASKED FOR.

HE ALSO WANTED THE GOSPEL

PREACHED SO HIS FRIENDS

FROM SCHOOL COULD ACCEPT

JESUS CHRIST AS THEIR LORD

AND SAVIOR.

CBN SPOKE WITH THE FAMILY

BY SKYPE ABOUT HIS WISH.

I WANTED THE GOSPEL

PREACHED TO ALL OF THE

PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW

JESUS.

I JUST REALLY WANTED TO DO

THAT.

Reporter: PETER

VANDENBURG IS THE VICE

PRESIDENT OF "CHRIST FOR

ALL NATIONS."

IT IS WHERE JACOBY'S DAD

WORKS.

AND THEY SAY HE FIRST

MENTIONED OF SHARING THE

GOSPEL AT HIS PARTY ON THE

WAY HOME FROM DAYCARE.

AND I THOUGHT, OH,

OKAY.

WELL, WHY DO YOU WANT TO

DO THAT?

AND JACOBY RESPONDED THAT

HE WANTED ALL OF HIS

FRIENDS THAT DIDN'T KNOW

JESUS TO COME INTO HIS

KINGDOM AND KNOW HIM THE

WAY THAT JACOBY KNOWS HIM.

THERE MAY BE MANY OF

YOU HERE LIKE ME, WHO SAY,

YES, I WANT TO GIVE MYSELF

TO JESUS.

I WANT HIM TO FORGIVE MY

SINS AND THE BAD THINGS

I'VE DONE AND COME AND

LIVE IN MY HEART AND MAKE

ME NEW SO THAT I CAN

BELONG TO HIM AGAIN.

AND YOU CAN DO THAT RIGHT

NOW, IF YOU WANT TO DO

THAT.

Reporter: ROB SAID

MORE THAN 15 CHILDREN AND

ADULTS ACCEPTED CHRIST AT

THE PARTY.

IN ADDITION TO HAVING THE

GOSPEL SHARED AT HIS

PARTY, JACOBY, WHO ATTENDS

A PUBLIC SCHOOL, ALSO GAVE

HIS FRIENDS CHILDREN'S NEW

TESTAMENT BIBLES.

THE 6-YEAR-OLD SIGNED THEM

AND WROTE HIS FRIENDS

NAMES IN THEM, ALONG WITH

THE DATE.

AND WRAPPED AROUND EACH

BIBLE WAS A TAG READING

"JESUS IS YOUR NUMBER ONE

HERO."

WHEN JACOBY ASKED THIS,

IT CHALLENGED ME AS A

FATHER.

IT CHALLENGED US AS A

FAMILY.

AND I THINK SOMETIMES THE

LORD LOVES THROWING THOSE

LITTLE THINGS INTO OUR

LIVES.

NOT RELIGION, BUT SINCERE

GENERAL RELATIONSHIP, TO

NEVER LOSE FOCUS ON WHAT

REALLY MATTERS MOST, AND

THAT'S SOULS.

AND I WILL NEVER BEEN

LOST AGAIN.

AND I WILL NEVER BE

LOST AGAIN.

IN JESUS' NAME.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Reporter: MARK

MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

John: WHAT A

REMARKABLE YOUNG BOY.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: I SHOULD SAY SO.

IT IS AMAZING, ABSOLUTELY

AMAZING.

SOME YEARS AGO I HAD THE

PRIVILEGE IN BEIJING OF

BEING INVITED TO SPEAK TO

A SUNDAY MORNING SERVICE

OF A THREE-SELF CHURCH.

THE CHURCH WAS PACKED WITH

PEOPLE, AND THEY WERE SO

OPEN TO WHAT MY MESSAGE

WAS.

IT WAS A THRILL TO TALK TO

THEM.

WELL, THERE IS MORE THAT

IS GOING ON NOW WITH THE

GOVERNMENT-SPONSORED

THREE-SELF CHURCH IN

CHINA.

Terry: YOU WILL BE

HAPPY TO KNOW THAT THEY'RE

LINING UP TO WORSHIP,

THEY'RE BEING BAPTIZED,

AND THEY'RE RECEIVING THE

POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AND IT IS HAPPENING IN A

VERY UNLIKELY PLACE.

I WAS SPEAKING IN THE

CHURCH RECENTLY, AND

AROUND 8,000 PEOPLE JOINED

THE MEETING.

LAST CHRISTMAS I WAS

SPEAKING AT A THREE-SELF

CHURCH IN TAIWAN, AND I

WAS AMAZED.

THERE WERE 12,000

PEOPLE -- 12,000.

Terry: WE'VE GOT

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO OF CHINA'S

THREE-SELF REVIVAL, RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Pat: CHINA IS ON

COURSE TO BECOME THE

LARGEST CHRISTIAN NATION

ON EARTH.

THERE ARE AT LEAST, OH, I

GUESS 120 MILLION,

130 MILLION CHRISTIANS IN

CHINA -- MAYBE THAT NUMBER

IS A WHOLE LOT BIGGER.

THAT'S THE ONE I HAD A FEW

YEARS AGO.

BUT THE AMAZING THING IS

THAT AN UNPRECEDENTED

REVIVAL IS HAPPENING IN

SOME PARTS OF CHINA, AND

IT SHOWS HOW GOD IS MOVING

AMONG A

COMMUNIST-CONTROLLED

GOVERNMENT.

GEORGE THOMAS TRAVELLED TO

SOUTHERN CHINA WHERE HE

OBTAINED THE PROOF FROM

INSIDE THOSE CHURCHES.

George: THURSDAY

EVENING IN FUJANG

PROVINCE, SOUTHEAST CHINA.

*

George: SCORES OF MEN

AND WOMEN DANCING, WAVING

FLAGS, BLOWING SHOFARS,

SINGING AND WORSHIPPING

GOD.

YOU MIGHT THINK THESE

IMAGES COME FROM A

CHARISMATIC SERIOUS I SERVICE IN THE

UNITED STATES.

BUT THEY'RE NOT.

THIS IS COMMUNIST AND

OFFICIALLY STILL ATHEIST

CHINA.

AND WHAT WONG FE LI SAYS

IS REMARKABLE ABOUT THIS

SCENE IS THAT IT IS

HAPPENING IN AN OFFICIALLY

GOVERNMENT-CONTROLLED

CONGREGATION KNOWN AS

THREE-SELF CHURCH.

Through Translator:

DRAMATIC CHANGES ARE

HAPPENING.

GOD IS MOVING IN A

POWERFUL WAY INSIDE THESE

THREE-SELF CHURCHES.

George: DUAN AND HIS

WIFE HAVE WITNESSED THIS

MOVE FIRSTHAND.

BOTH ARE EV LIST EVANGELISTS.

Through Translator:

THE MOST AMAZING THING IS

THE LORD IS RAISING

GOD-LOVING PEOPLE IN THESE

CHURCHES.

George: PASTOR DUAN

SAYS WHAT IS HAPPENING IN

BEIJING AND IN OTHER PARTS

OF CHINA, AS IT RELATES TO

THE POWERFUL MOVE OF GOD

AMONGST THE THREE-SELF

CHURCHES IS QUITE

REMARKABLE, TAKING INTO

CONSIDERATION WHERE THE

CHURCH HAS BEEN IN THE

LAST 30 YEARS.

> WHAT WAS IT LIKE FOR

THE THREE-SELF CHURCH 30

YEARS AGO?

EVERY SERMON THAT THE

PASTOR PREACHED HAD TO BE

VETTED BY THE GOVERNMENT

AUTHORITIES.

YOUNG PEOPLE WERE NEVER

ALLOWED TO ATTEND THESE

CHURCHES.

PREACHING ABOUT THE POWER

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS

FORBIDDEN.

YOU COULDN'T TALK ABOUT

THE END TIMES.

George: TOPICS ON

MIRACLES, SIGNS, AND

WONDERS WERE OUT OF THE

QUESTION.

> AND TODAY YOU CAN

PREACH THOSE MESSAGES?

Through Translator:

YES.

NOWADAYS PEOPLE HAVE

ACCEPTED THESE TOPICS.

George: THERE ARE TWO

TYPES OF CHURCHES IN

CHINA, REGISTERED AND

UNREGISTERED.

REGISTERED CHURCHES, KNOWN

AS THREE-SELF CHURCHES,

ARE GOVERNMENT APPROVED.

UNDERGROUND OR HOUSE

CHURCHES OPERATE OUTSIDE

GOVERNMENT CONTROL, AND

FOR DECADES FACED INTENSE

PERSECUTION.

AND WITH THAT PERSECUTION

CAME TREMENDOUS GROWTH.

THREE-SELF CHURCHES, ON

THE OTHER HAND, NEVER

EXPERIENCED THAT KIND OF

EXPLOSIVE GROWTH UNTIL

NOW.

Through Translator:

NOW THEY SPEAK ABOUT

REVIVALS HAPPENING IN THE

THREE-SELF CHURCHES.

George: THI THIS FORMER

COMMUNIST PARTY MEMBER AND

ATHEIST, CHOW CONVERTED

AFTER READING THE BIBLE.

IF YOU GO TO THE HIBIAN

CHURCH, YOU FIND YOURSELF

IN A MORE THAN 100-METER

LINE TRYING TO GET IN THE

CHURCHES.

George: YOU KNOW, 30,

40 YEARS AGO, THE CHINESE

GOVERNMENT HAD A LAW THAT

SAID, YOU KNOW, YOUNG MEN

AND WOMAN BELOW THE AGE OF

18 COULD NOT ATTEND THESE

THREE-SELF CHURCHES.

IS THAT THE CASE STILL

TODAY?

Through Translator:

THERE IS AN INCREASING

PROPORTION OF THEM IN

CHURCHES NOW.

MORE YOUNG MALE BELIEVERS,

PROFESSIONALS, MAINSTREAM

CELEBRITIES, ESPECIALLY IN

THE BIG CITIES, THAT ARE

ATTENDING THE CHURCH.

UNLIKE IN THE PAST WHEN IT

WAS MAINLY THE ELDERLY WHO

ATTENDED.

George: BACK AT THE

THURSDAY NIGHT MEETING,

FOLKS HAVE GATHERED FOR A

FOUR-DAY EVENT

AFFECTIONATELY CALLED

"LOVE CAMP."

PASTOR SOON RENWE LEADS

THE CAMP.

HE SAYS THE HOLY SPIRIT

ONE DAY SHOWED UP WHILE HE

WAS PREACHING AT THE

THREE-SELF CHURCH HE

PASTORS HERE.

WE WERE IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE CHURCH, AND

SUDDENLY EVERYONE FELT THE

HOLY SPIRIT'S ANOINTING.

SOME COULDN'T STAND

STRAIGHT, AND OTHERS FELL

DOWN.

SOME WERE NAUSEOUS.

PEOPLE STARTED CRYING.

I FELT DEMONS BEING CHASED

AWAY FROM PEOPLE'S BODIES.

George: THE PASTOR

SAID HIS CHURCH HAD NEVER

EXPERIENCED ANYTHING LIKE

IT.

Through Translator:

WE WERE SEEING SOMETHING

UNPRECEDENTED.

THIS WAS COMPLETELY KNEW

FOR US.

George: WORD QUICKLY

SPREAD.

Through Translator:

WE WERE ONE OF THE FIRST

CHURCHES TO EXPERIENCE

THIS IN THE AREA.

SOON LEADERS FROM OTHER

CHURCHES CAME TO US AND

WERE EAGER TO RECEIVE THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

LATER THEY ALSO STARTED

WITNESSING THE HOLY

SPIRIT'S MOVE AS WELL.

George: THE CHURCH

RUNS TWO ORPHANAGES AND

TWO ELDERLY-CARE CENTERS,

AND TWICE A YEAR PUTS ON

THE "LOVE CAMP."

WE HAVE FOUR GOALS IN

THIS CAMP: TO EVANGELIZE

PEOPLE, STRENGTHEN THE

FAMILY, DISCIPLE

BELIEVERS, AND ENCOURAGE

OTHER THREE-SELF CHURCHES

TO EMBRACE THE POWER OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

George: THE PASTOR

AND HIS WIFE LIST THIS AS

EVIDENCE THAT GOD IS DOING

SOMETHING SPECIAL IN THE

WORLD'S MOST POPULOUS

NATION.

Through Translator: I

WAS SPEAKING IN SHANDONG

RECENTLY, AND AROUND 8,000

PEOPLE JOINED THE MEETING.

LAST CHRISTMAS WAS

SPEAKING AT A THREE-SELF

CHURCH IN UWAN, AND I WAS

AMAZED.

THERE WERE 12,000 PEOPLE,

12,000!

George: THEY AND

OTHERS SAY THEY FEEL

HONORED TO PLAY A PART IN

HELPING MORE CHINESE TURN

TO JESUS CHRIST.

Through Translator:

THE NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS

IN CHINA IS GROWING

RAPIDLY.

IT MEANS CHRIST IS

STARTING TO PLAY AN ACTIVE

ROLE IN CHINA'S SOCIETY.

THAT IS GOOD IN MANY WAYS.

George: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS, CHINA.

Pat: IT IS THERE,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, A

REVIVAL OF MASSIVE

PROPORTIONS.

AS I SAY, CHINA WILL BE

THE LARGEST CHRISTIAN

NATION ON THE FACE OF THE

EARTH.

IT PROBABLY HAS EXCEEDED

THE UNITED STATES ALREADY,

THE NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS

THAT ARE THERE.

THEY CAN LEAD THE WORLD IN

THAT REGARD.

Terry: YOU'VE BEEN

SAYING THAT FOR A LONG

TIME, TALKING ABOUT THE

POSSIBILITY, AND NOW WE'RE

SEEING IT HAPPEN.

Pat: WHEN YOU'RE

THERE WITH THEM, IT IS

UNBELIEVABLE.

THEIR FAITH IS JUST SO

SIMPLE, HUMBLE, AND SO

DEDICATED TO THE LORD.

THEY PUT US ALL TO SHAME.

THEY HANG ON EVERY WORD.

THE ONE EXPERIENCE I HAD

WAS JUST OVERWHELMING.

THE PLACE WAS PACKED,

ABSOLUTELY PACKED.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE

IN CHINA, BUT THEY REALLY

WANT TO KNOW THE LORD.

I THINK THE GOVERNMENT HAS

BEGUN TO RECOGNIZE THAT

CHRISTIANITY IS NOT A

THREAT TO THEM BUT A

SUPPORT TO THEM.

CHRISTIANS ARE NOT OUT TO

OVERTHROW THEIR GOVERNMENT

OR TO GIVE OR START SOME

RADICAL MOVEMENT.

THEY'RE THERE TO BE GOOD

CITIZENS.

WHEN THE LEADERSHIP LEADERSHIP

REALIZED THAT, THEY EASED

UP.

Terry: THAT WAS

ACTUALLY THE MESSAGE YOU

BROUGHT?

Pat: I TAL TALKED TO THE

PRIME MINISTER, AND HE

LISTENED AND HE REPORTED

THAT TO THE BUREAU.

SO THEY GOT THE WORD.

HEY, I'M ALL FOR CHINA.

I JUST HOPE -- THERE IS A

MILITARY BRANCH, THE ARMY,

THAT MAY WANT SOME KIND OF

CONFRONTATION, BUT MY TAKE

OF IT IS THE CHINESE DON'T

WANT TO GO TO WAR.

THEY DON'T WANT WAR.

THEY WANT PEACE.

THEY WANT TO BUILD UP

THEIR SOCIETY.

ANYHOW, IT IS VERY

ENCOURAGING.

Terry: VERY EXCITING.

> WELL, NEXT, A

5-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO'S OWN

FAMILY FORCED HER TO TAKE

PART IN SATANIC RITUALS.

WE WERE FORCED TO DRINK

THE BLOOD AND TO EAT EYES.

IF WE DIDN'T, WE WERE

TORMENTED UNTIL WE DID.

Terry: HEAR HOW SHE

FREED HERSELF FROM THAT

TORMENT.

THAT'S ALL COMING UP NEXT.

PAPER

PAPER

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED ALL OF YOU

ARE WITH US.

WE'RE ABOUT TO SHOW YOU A

SHOCKING STORY ABOUT A

KINDERGARTEN, LITTLE GIRL

WHO WAS FORCED INTO A

SATANIC CULT.

THIS LITTLE CHILD WAS

TORTURED AND TORMENTED ALL

IN THE NAME OF THE DEVIL

HIMSELF.

AND NOW DECADES AFTER

ENDURING THIS LIVING

NIGHTMARE, SHE IS BREAKING

HER SILENCE.

WATCH THIS.

THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST

THE MOST, WHO ARE SUPPOSED

TO TAKE CARE OF YOU AND

PROTECT YOU FROM HARM,

ACTUALLY DID THE HARM.

Reporter: WHEN

PATRICIA WAS FIVE YEARS

OLD, SHE WAS INITIATED

INTO A SECRET SATANIC CULT

THROUGH A SERIES OF SICK

AND ABUSIVE RITUALS.

I WAS WHISKED AWAY BY

FAMILY MEMBERS TO TAKE

PART IN A CEREMONY, A

RITUAL.

IN THE BASEMENT THERE WAS

AN ALTER THAT WAS MADE OUT

OF WOOD.

AND ON THE FLOOR, THE

CONCRETE, WAS A PENTAGRAM

PAINTED WITH RED PAINT.

THERE WERE FAMILY MEMBERS

AND CULT MEMBERS IN A

CIRCLE AROUND THE ALTER.

THEY WERE CHANTING IN SOME

UNKNOWN LANGUAGE.

I JUST REMEMBER BEING

PINNED DOWN, STRAPPED

DOWN, AND THEN RITUALS

PERFORMED ON ME.

Reporter: PATRICIA

SAYS SHE WAS RAPED AND

PLEDGED TO SATAN.

BUT IT DIDN'T STOP THERE.

SATANIC RITUALS AND ANIMAL

SACRIFICE CONTINUED

THROUGHOUT HER CHILDHOOD.

WE WERE FORCED TO DRINK

THE BLOOD AND EAT THE

EYES.

IF WE DIDN'T, WE WERE

TORMENTED UNTIL WE DID.

AND THE EYES WERE TO GIVE

US POWER TO SEE INTO THE

SPIRIT REALM.

Reporter: FOR

PATRICIA, THERE WAS NO

SAFE PLACE.

UNABLE TO PROCESS THE

ABUSE, SHE SUPPRESSED HER

MEMORIES.

THESE NIGHT TERRORS WOULD

CONTINUE, AND THE DREAMS.

AND MY BRAIN WAS TRYING TO

SORT IT ALL OUT, WORK IT

ALL OUT.

AND, YOU KNOW, IT'S A

NIGHTMARE.

IT'S AN ABSOLUTE

NIGHTMARE.

I FELT LIKE I WAS LIVING A

CONSTANT HORROR MOVIE.

A HORROR MOVIE, THAT'S HOW

I DESCRIBE IT.

A HORROR MOVIE ON

HALLOWEEN.

Reporter: AT 13 YEARS

OLD, SHE RAN AWAY FROM

HOME.

BUT THE DARKNESS FOLLOWED

HER.

IN HER TEENS AND 20s,

PATRICIA READ TAROT CARDS.

AND SHE LIVED IN CONSTANT

FEAR AND DARKNESS.

I WAS ABLE TO SEE

DEMONS AND SPIRITS AND

GHOSTS.

AS I GOT OLDER, I STILL

CONTINUED THOSE THINGS.

I HAD SPIRITUAL GUIDES.

I WANTED POWER.

I WANTED TO HAVE COMPLETE

POWER OVER MY LIFE BECAUSE

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY POWER

OVER MY LIFE WHEN I WAS

YOUNGER.

ANY TIME THAT I WENT AND

TRIED TO GET HEALING FROM

THE OCCULT, THE FIRST

THOUGHT THAT WOULD COME TO

MY MIND WAS TO KILL

MYSELF, WHICH I TRIED MANY

TIMES TO DO.

WHETHER IT BE SLICING MY

WRISTS OR TAKING OVERDOSES

OF PILLS, AND ENDING UP IN

PSYCHIATRIC WARDS AND

HOSPITALS.

Reporter: SHE LONGED

FOR FREEDOM BUT DIDN'T

KNOW WHERE TO TURN.

I WANTED TO HAVE PEACE

AND I WANTED TO BE HAPPY,

BUT I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO

GET IT BECAUSE I WAS

AFRAID OF GOD.

I HATED GOD.

I WANTED NOTHING TO DO

WITH HIM.

I WAS SEARCHING TO BE

SAFE.

I WAS SEARCHING FOR PEACE.

I WAS SEARCHING TO BE

LOVED.

Reporter: DESPERATE,

PATRICIA WENT TO CHURCH

WITH A CHRISTIAN FRIEND.

AS THE CHURCH WORSHIPPED,

SHE FELT THE LOVE OF JESUS

FOR THE FIRST TIME.

THEN SHE FELT SOMETHING

ELSE.

EVERYBODYjU)jt

THEI AND I WANTED TO

DO WHAT EVERYBODY WAS

DOING.

I WANTED TO FEEL WHAT THEY

WERE FEELING.

I NEEDED FREEDOM.

SO I RAISED MY HANDS, AND

A DARK PRESENCE CAME UP

BEHIND ME AND LITERALLY

JERKED MY SHOULDER.

I WASN'T BUDGING, AND I

SAID, NO, I'M NOT GOING.

I'M NOT LEAVING.

THIS IS WHERE I'M STAYING.

AND I KEPT CRYING, JESUS,

JESUS, JESUS.

AND THEN IT STARTED

LIFTING AND LIFTING AND

LIFTING.

Reporter: PATRICIA

BECAME A CHRISTIAN AND

BEGAN A LONG JOURNEY TO

FREEDOM AND WHOLENESS WITH

JESUS.

I GOT ON MY FACE AND I

SAID, I WANT TO FEEL YOU

MOVING IN MY LIFE.

I WANT TO FEEL A RELEASE

FROM THESE STRONGHOLDS.

I WANT TO FEEL PEACE.

WHEN I GOT UP OFF THE

FLOOR, HE WAS THERE.

HE WAS THERE WITH ME.

AND I STARTED READING

EVERY SCRIPTURE ABOUT HIM.

THE WOMAN AT THE WELL.

THE WOMAN WHO TOUCHED HIS

GARMENT.

I WAS THOSE WOMEN.

THE WOMAN WHO WAS ABOUT TO

BE STONED.

I WAS ALL OF THOSE WOMEN

IN ONE, WHO NEEDEDED HIM.

I NEEDED HIM TO GRADUALLY

SHOW ME I COULD TRUST HIM,

AND THAT'S WHAT HE DID.

Reporter: THROUGH

INTENSE CHRISTIAN

COUNSELLING AND PRAYER,

PATRICIA FINALLY FOUND THE

FREEDOM AND PEACE SHE HAD

ALWAYS WANTED IN CHRIST.

NOW I WALK DAILY WITH

JOY.

AND I NEVER FORGET TO

THANK HIM EVERY DAY FOR

WHAT HE HAS DONE IN MY

LIFE.

NEVER FORGET.

THANK HIM.

AND I ENJOY LIFE SO MUCH

MORE.

YOU KNOW, IT IS LATER IN

MY LIFE, BUT HE HAS GIVEN

ME ALL OF THOSE YEARS BACK

THAT THE DEVIL STOLE FROM

ME.

IF HE CAN TAKE SOMEONE

LIKE ME, WHO WAS INVOLVED

IN ALL OF THAT DARKNESS

AND OPPRESSED BY IT, AND

SET ME FREE AND GIVE ME A

WHOLE NEW LIFE -- IF HE

CAN TAKE SOMEONE LIKE ME,

WHO WAS INTO THE OCCULT SO

DEEP, INTO THAT DARKNESS

SO DEEP, WHO WAS TRAPPED

BY THE ENEMY, AND PULL HER

UP OUT OF THAT HOLE, THAT

PIT OF HELL, AND BRING HER

INTO THE LIGHT, HE CAN DO

THAT FOR ANYONE -- ANYONE.

I DON'T CARE HOW DEEP THEY

ARE INTO THE OCCULT, HE

CAN PULL YOU OUT.

IT JUST TAKES A FEW WORDS:

JESUS, HELP ME.

AND HE WILL BE THERE.

HE WILL BE THERE TO HELP

PULL YOU OUT.

Pat: YOU KNOW, FOLKS,

THERE IS A SPIRITUAL

REALITY.

THERE IS A GOD IN HEAVEN.

THERE IS A SPIRIT OF GOD,

A HOLY SPIRIT.

THERE ARE ANGELS.

AND THERE ARE DEMONS.

THERE IS A DEVIL.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF THIS

THING.

AND THOSE WHO GIVE

THEMSELVES TO THE DEVIL

WIND UP BEING TORMENTED

BECAUSE HE HATES GOD AND

HE HATES THOSE CREATED IN

THE IMAGE OF GOD.

SO THOSE WHO ARE INVOLVED

IN SATANIC WORSHIP, AND

THERE ARE THOSE THERE, THE

FACT THAT THEY WOULD

SACRIFICE THEIR OWN

CHILDREN AND PUT THEM

THROUGH UNGODLY RITUALS

AND TORMENT AND RAPE AND

ALL OF THE REST OF THE

THINGS THEY DID TO THAT

CHILD -- THAT'S PART OF

SATAN.

SATAN HATES HUMANITY.

HE IS NOT A FINAL LITTLE

DEVIL WITH HORNS AND A

PITCHFORK.

HE IS A MALEVOLENT

CREATURE.

BUT HE WAS AN ANGEL OF

LIGHT UNTIL INIQUITY WAS

FOUND IN HIM.

BUT WE'RE NOT HERE TO

FOCUS ON SATAN.

WE'RE HERE TO FOCUS ON

JESUS.

AND WHAT PATRICIA WAS

SAYING, IF YOU CALL UPON

THE NAME OF THE LORD, THE

NAME OF JESUS, YOU CAN GET

FREE FROM WHATEVER IS

THERE.

SOME OF YOU ARE HAVING BAD

DREAMS AT NIGHT.

SOME OF YOU FEEL LIKE A

DARK CLOUD HAS COME UPON

YOU AND YOU DON'T KNOW HOW

TO GET FREE OF IT.

YOU'VE GOT TERRIBLE

DEPRESSION AND ALL OF

THESE THINGS.

SPEAK THE WORD OF FAITH

AND BIND SATAN'S POWER IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

AND YOU WILL FIND

DELIVERANCE AS YOU LOOK TO

THE LORD.

AND IF YOU WANT TO BE

FREE, I WANT YOU TO PRAY

WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

PRAY THESE WORDS.

BOW YOUR HEAD.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT.

JESUS, I DO NOT WANT TO BE

ASSOCIATED WITH SATAN OR

THE POWERS OF DARKNESS.

I WANT TO BE FREE.

AND I SPEAK THE WORD OF

FAITH.

JESUS, COME INTO MY HEART.

TAKE OVER MY LIFE.

LIVE IN ME, AND I, LORD,

WILL LIVE FOR YOU.

AND AT THIS MOMENT, I BIND

THE POWER OF SATAN IN

JESUS' NAME, AND THE

FORCES OF EVIL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AND I THANK YOU FOR

DELIVERANCE, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO JUST

PRAYED, I'M GOING TO GIVE

YOU SOMETHING IF YOU'D

LIKE IT.

IT IS ABOUT WHAT GOES ON

IN THIS DARK WORLD.

WE ALSO HAVE SOMETHING

CALLED A NEW DAY.

AND IT TELLS YOU ABOUT

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU COME

TO THE LORD.

IT IS CALLED "A NEW DAY."

I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU FOR

FREE IF YOU WANT IT.

CALL IN AND SAY, I PRAYED

WITH PAT, AND I GAVE MY

HEART TO THE LORD.

WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY TO

START THE NEW YEAR, TO BE

ONE WITH THE LORD AND TO

BE FREE OF THAT DARK CLOUD

THAT MAY HAVE BEEN

BESETTING YOU.

YOU CAN START CLEAN AND

FRESH IN THE NAME OF THE

LORD.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT,

DOCTORS SAID HER SON WOULD

O HAVHAVE A CLEFT PALATE.

THEY NEVER IMAGINED THAT

WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING.

ONE COURAGEOUS MOTHER

JOINS US LIVE.

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

CHICAGO POLICE HAVE

ARRESTED FOUR PEOPLE IN

THEIR INVESTIGATION OF A

GROUP OF ATTACKERS WHO

BEAT AND TORTURED A MAN

WHO IS APPARENTLY WHITE.

THE VIDEO WAS BROADCAST ON

Facebook LIVE.

THE SUSPECTS APPEAR TO BE

BLACK IN THE VIDEO, BUT

CHICAGO POLICE WOULDN'T

CONFIRM THEIR RACE.

THE SOCIAL MEDIA VIDEO

SHOWS THE ATTACKERS

BEATING THE MAN WHILE

SOMEONE OFF-CAMERA USES

PROFANITIES ABOUT WHITE

PEOPLE AND PRESIDENT-ELECT

DONALD TRUMP.

THE VICTIM WAS A MAN WITH

MENTAL HEALTH CHALLENGES.

THEY FOUND HIM WANDERING

ARN THE CITWANDERINGAROUND THE CITY IN SHO CK

AFTER THE ATTACK.

THE POLICE SAY THEY

HAVEN'T DETERMINED A

MOTIVE YET FOR THIS

ATTACK.

BONE-CHILLING ARCTIC

COLD IS HITTING THE UPPER

PLAINS.

FROM MON NO MONTANA TO UTAH,

TEMPERATURES HAVE DROPPED

DRAMATICALLY.

AND HEAVY SNOW IN COLORADO

HAVE MADE IT DIFFICULT FOR

TRAVELLERS THERE.

PEOPLE IN OREGON SAY THEY

WERE NOT PREPARED.

WE CAN'T PREPARE FOR

SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

IT IS AN ACT OF GOD.

WE HAD TREES FALLING ALL

OVER THE COAST TODAY.

IT WAS ONE OF THOSE

UNFORTUNATE MISHAPS THAT

NOBODY WANTS TO SEE

HAPPEN.

Wendy: PEOPLE ARE

BEING WARNED THEY COULD

SUFFER FROSTBITE AND

HYPOTHERMIA IF THEY DON'T

TAKE THE PROPER

PRECAUTIONS.

IT WON'T BE ABOVE 0 UNTIL

FRIDAY.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: SHE DIDN'T

PLAN ON MAKING A VIRAL

VIDEO, IN FACT, SHE DIDN'T

EVEN HAVE A YouTube

ACCOUNT AT THE TIME.

SO WHEN LACY HIT THE

RECORD BUTTON ON HER

PHONE, SHE DIDN'T REALLY

KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT.

ALL SHE WANTED TO DO WAS

TELL PEOPLE ABOUT HER

BEAUTIFUL SON.

Reporter: AN

ULTRASOUND SHOWED HER

UNBORN SON, CHRISTIAN,

WITH A CLEFT PALATE.

FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS,

SHE AND HER HUSBAND

REMAINED HOPEFUL.

BUT IN THE DELIVERY ROOM,

THEY WERE SHOCKED.

BECAUSE HIS CLEFT LIP WAS

SO SEVERE, THAT HIS EYES

DIDN'T FORM.

SHE TELLS HOW GOD TURNED

THEIR TRAGIC SITUATION

INTO SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL.

Terry: LACY IS HERE

WITH US NOW, AND WE

WELCOME YOU TO "THE 700

CLUB."

HI.

THANK YOU.

Terry: YOU AND CHRIS,

YOUR HUSBAND, WERE

CHRISTIANS.

THIS IS YOUR FIRST BABY.

YOU'RE EXCITED.

AND YOU'RE PRAYING THROUGH

THIS PREGNANCY.

YOU DID KNOW, BECAUSE OF

AN ULTRASOUND, THAT THERE

WERE GOING TO BE SOME

ISSUES FOR CHRISTIAN WHEN

HE WAS BORN, BUT YOU

REALLY HAD NO IDEA THE

DEPTH OF THEM.

WHAT WAS THAT PREGNANCY

LIKE FOR YOU AS YOU WAITED

FOR THE BABY TO BE

DELIVERED?

THERE WAS A LOT OF

NERVES DURING MY

PREGNANCY.

BUT OVERALL, I ENJOYED IT.

IT IS SUCH A SPECIAL THING

TO CARRY A CHILD.

SO I REALLY ENJOYED THAT

SPECIAL TIME.

BUT THERE WERE SOME

SCARES.

IT WAS SCARY TO NOT KNOW

WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

Terry: YOU SAY IN THE

BOOK THAT AT THE POINT

THAT THE BABY WAS BORN, OF

COURSE THEY WHISKED HIM

AWAY.

AND CHRIS WENT OVER TO

LOOK AT HIM, AND HE CAME

BACK TO YOU, AND YOU SAID,

TELL ME IT ISN'T BAD.

AND HE SAID, IT'S WORSE.

WHAT WAS THAT TIME LIKE

FOR YOU -- NOT JUST FOR

YOU, BUT FOR YOUR HUSBAND,

TOO?

WHERE DO YOU GO WITH

PEOPLE OF FAITH, WITH THE

FACT THAT YOU PRAYED AND

PRAYED, AND ASKED GOD TO

CONTEND WITH THIS

CONDITION OF YOUR BABY --

WHERE DO YOU GO WITH THAT

SPIRITUALLY, LACY?

THE TIME WAS A LITTLE

UNREAL.

IT WAS A TIME OF MOURNING

AND GRIEVING BECAUSE WE

HAD LOST SOMETHING.

BUT WE HAD TO LEARN TO

GRIEVE THAT LOSS AND MOVE

FORWARD.

Terry: YOUR ACCOUNTS

OF WHAT YOUR SON HAD TO GO

THROUGH IN PAIN AND

PROCEDURES ARE

GUT-WRENCHING IN THE BOOK.

I CAN'T JUST IMAGINE AS A

MOM, HAVING TO STAND BY

AND WATCH THAT.

BUT GOD USED THAT IN YOUR

LIFE.

YOU REALLY TOUGHENED UP

THROUGH ALL OF THAT.

YES.

Terry: TALK ABOUT

THAT PROCESS.

CHRISTIAN HAS TAUGHT ME

TO GO FROM A MOUTH TO A

MAMA BEAR.

I HAVE LEARNED TO REALLY

BE A VOICE AND STAND UP

AND ADVOCATE, AND NOT JUST

STAND BACK AND BE SO

TIMID.

Terry: YOU KNOW, THAT

HAS BEEN HELPFUL TO

CHRISTIAN, TOO.

BECAUSE TO BE TWO

OVERPROTECTIVE IS TO NOT

LET HIM FLY AND BE WHO GOD

CREATED HIM TO BE.

BUT GOD HAD TO TOUCH YOU

THAT, DIDN'T HE?

UH-HUH.

THERE IS A BALANCE.

Terry: ONE OF THE

THINGS YOU CONTENDED WITH

OVER THE YEARS -- YOU SAID

IT WAS A BLESSING TO LEAVE

THE I.C.U., BUT AT THE

SAME TIME IN THE I.C.U.,

PEOPLE WEREN'T STARING AT

HIM OR CALLING HIM NAMES

OR LOOKING AT YOU LIKE YOU

HAD DONE SOMETHING

TERRIBLE BY GIVING BIRTH

TO A CHILD WITH SPECIAL

NEEDS.

HOW DID YOU ADAPT TO THE

PUBLIC RESPONSE TO A

LITTLE BOY WHO HAD SEVERE

FACIAL NEEDS?

I HAD REALLY NO CHOICE

BUT TO ADAPT.

I DID HAVE TWO CHOICES: TO

LET IT HURT ME OR TO LEARN

FROM IT AND GROW FROM IT.

I CHOSE TO GROW FROM IT

BECAUSE I WANTED TO BE AN

EXAMPLE FOR CHRISTIAN TO

FOLLOW.

BECAUSE ONE DAY WHEN HE IS

OLDER, HE WILL HEAR THE

COMMENTS I HEAR.

AND I WANT HIM TO KNOW WHO

HE IS IS NOT DEFINED BY

THOSE NEGATIVE COMMENTS.

Terry: A MOTHER'S

HEART IS SO TOUCHED BY HER

CHILD.

THERE IS A BOND AND A LOVE

THERE THAT IS ALMOST

DIFFICULT TO EXPLAIN TO

SOMEONE WHO HASN'T

EXPERIENCED THAT.

YOU MUST HAVE FELT SO MANY

DIFFERENT EMOTIONS AS

PEOPLE REACTED TO THIS

LITTLE BOY THAT YOU ADORE.

HOW DID YOU HANDLE THAT?

AT FIRST IT WAS

PAINFUL.

IT STUNG TO HEAR NEGATIVE

COMMENTS BECAUSE I SAW A

BEAUTIFUL CHILD.

I GUESS I WAS NAIVE TO THE

FACT THAT OTHER PEOPLE

WOULD LOOK AT HIM AND NOT

SEE THE SAME THING.

BUT I DECIDED THAT I WOULD

REACT GRACEFULLY AND TEACH

PEOPLE AND EDUCATE THEM.

BECAUSE GETTING UPSET WITH

THEM WAS GOING TO DRIVE

THEM AWAY.

AND THAT'S NOT WHAT I

WANTED.

I WANTED CHRISTIAN TO BE

ACCEPTED FOR WHO HE IS.

I FELT THE BEST WAY TO DO

THAT WAS TO GIVE THAT

ACCEPTANCE AND TO GIVE

THAT GRACE.

Terry: THUS THE

VIDEO.

HOW DID THAT COME TO BE?

I HAD SOME NEGATIVE

COMMENTS ONLINE AND THEY

WERE VERY PAINFUL.

THEY WERE SOME OF THE MOST

HURTFUL --

Terry: HOW CRUEL?

VERY CRUEL.

AND THEY WERE SOME OF THE

MOST HURTFUL COMMENTS I'VE

HEARD.

I THOUGHT, I NEED TO TELL

OUR STORY.

I HAD THE GOD-INSPIRED

IDEA TO MAKE THIS VIDEO

AND TO SHARE OUR STORY

WITH THE WORLD, TO REALLY

EXPLAIN TO PEOPLE WHO

CHRISTIAN IS.

Terry: AND WHAT

REACTION DID YOU GET?

I KNOW YOU WERE SHOCKED?

YES.

AN UNEXPECTED REACTION,

FOR SURE, WAS WHAT WE GOT.

IT JUST BLEW UP QUICKLY.

WITHIN DAYS AROUND THE

WORLD.

SO MUCH SO THAT I COULDN'T

EVEN KEEP UP WITH IT.

Terry: I WANT OUR

AUDIENCE TO MEET CHRISTIAN

BECAUSE HE IS SUCH A

SPECIAL GUY.

SO, CHRIS, WILL YOU COME

IN AND BRING CHRISTIAN

WITH YOU.

I KNOW HE IS PROBABLY

WANTING HIS MOM FOR A FEW

MINUTES ANYWAY.

CHRISTIAN, WELCOME.

IT IS SO NICE TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

CAN YOU SAY HELLO.

HI.

Terry: I HEAR YOU ARE

A LOVER OF SUPER HEROS.

YES.

YES, MA'AM.

Terry: WHO IS YOUR

FAVORITE ONE.

DO YOU LIKE SUPERMAN?

YEAH.

Terry: BATMAN AND

SPIDERMAN AND ALL OF THOSE

GOOD GUYS?

YES.

Terry: I UNDERSTAND

HE ALSO PLAYS PIANO.

HE DOES.

Terry: ONE OF THE

THINGS YOU OUTLINED IN THE

BOOK THAT I THINK IS SO

ENLIGHTENING, IS WHEN YOU

HAVE A CHILD WITH SPECIAL

NEEDS HOW THAT DICTATES

YOUR DAY, YOUR SCHEDULE,

YOUR FOCUS.

I MEAN IN THE MIDDLE OF

ALL OF THIS, YOU EARN A

LAW DEGREE, GIRL.

YOU ARE LIKE SUPER MOM.

TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT

PEOPLE TO TAKE AWAY FROM

THE BOOK, "THROUGH THE

EYES OF HOPE," BUT ALSO

HAVING THE VIDEO AVAILABLE

FOR PEOPLE TO SEE AND JUST

EVEN BEING HERE TODAY

EXPRESSING YOUR THOUGHTS,

WHAT DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO

TAKE AWAY FROM YOUR

ADMINISTER?

>STORY? I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW

THAT CHRISTIAN AND PEOPLE

LIKE HIM ARE HUMAN BEINGS,

FIRST, THEY ARE HUMAN

PEOPLE.

AND THEIR DISABILITY

DOESN'T DEFINE THEM.

AND I WANT THEM TO KNOW

THEY CAN TRUST GOD THROUGH

THE DIFFICULT

CIRCUMSTANCES.

NO MATTER WHAT THE

STRUGGLE IS, GOD IS BIG

ENOUGH TO HANDLE IT.

Terry: AND IN YOUR

OWN FAITH YOU SAW THAT.

ALTHOUGH THERE WERE NO

ANSWERS TO THE QUESTION

WHY, THERE WAS STRENGTH

AND COURAGE AND FAITH FOR

THE HOUR.

AMEN.

YES.

EXACTLY.

AMEN.

I HAVE A PLAQUE IN MY

HOUSE THAT I LOVE THAT

SAYS, BOYS ARE JUST SUPER

HEROS.

AND THIS BOY IS CERTAINLY

ONE.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

BOTH WITH US.

YOU CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT

THE BUCHANAN'S STORY BY

GETTING LACY'S BOOK, AND

IT'S CALLED "THROUGH THE

EYES OF HOPE."

IT IS AVAILABLE IN STORES

NATIONWIDE.

LACY AND CHRISTIAN, THANK

YOU FOR BEING WITH US.

ON THE HEALS OF THE NEW

STORY THAT WE JUST HEARD

ABOUT THE SPECIAL NEEDS

PERSON WHO IS PUT UPON BY

PEOPLE WHO JUST DIDN'T

UNDERSTAND -- WE ALL NEED

TO UNDERSTAND TO SEE THE

PRICELESS GIFT OF BEAUTY

IN ALL HUMAN BEINGS.

IT'S GREAT TO HAVE YOU.

THANK YOU.

Pat: AMAZING LADY.

> STILL AHEAD, WE'LL BE

ANSWERING QUESTIONS FROM

OUR VIEWERS.

DENISE SAYS, "MY SON AND

DAUGHTER THINK THE DEAD

CAN TALK TO THEM AND TEACH

THEM.

HOW DO I PROVE TO THEM

THAT THEY ARE BEING

DECEIVED?"

WE'VE GOT ANOTHER ROUND OF

"BRING IT ON" COMING UP AS

WE CONTINUE "70 "THE 700

CLUB."

Terry: EVERY DAY KALA

PUTS HIS LIFE ON THE LINE.

HE WAS A DEEP SEA DIVER

WHO HAD TO PROVIDE FOR HIS

FAMILY.

EVEN THOUGH HIS JOB WAS

DANGEROUS, IT STILL DIDN'T

PAY ENOUGH TO PUT FOOD ON

THE TABLE.

SEVEN-YEAR-OLD TITO WAITS

ON THE SHORES OF THIS

ISLAND IN SOUTHERN

THAILAND, WONDERING IF

THIS IS THE DAY HIS FATHER

WILL COME HOME.

I MISS MY DADDY ALLOT.

MOMMY AND I ALWAYS PRAY

FOR HIM.

I WISH DADDY WERE HERE

EVERY DAY.

Terry: TITO'S FATHER

DIVES FOR A LIVING, USING

A SINGLE HOSE ATTACHED TO

A COMPRESSOR.

HE MUST SWIM UP TO

130 FEET BELOW THE SURFACE

AND STAY UNDER WATER FOR

AN HOUR.

HE IS LOOKING FOR SEA

CUCUMBERS, AN ASIAN

DELICACY.

MANY HAVE DIED DOING THIS.

KALA SAYS HE HAS BEEN

LUCKY SO FAR.

HE EARNS JUST $4 A DAY FOR

THE RISKY JOB.

IF I HADN'T TAKEN THE

JOB, MY FAMILY WOULD HAVE

NOTHING TO EAT.

THERE ARE NO OTHER JOBS

HERE.

Terry: BACK HOME, HIS

WIFE TRIES TO REPAIR THEIR

FISHING NETS.

THEY OWN A SMALL FISHING

BOAT, BUT WITH NO MOTOR.

CATCHING LARGER FISH TO

SELL IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE.

EVERY TIME MY HUSBAND

LEAVES, WE WONDER IF HE

WILL COME HOME SAFELY.

WE DON'T WANT HIM TO GO,

BUT WE NEED THE MONEY.

Terry: THE COUPLE

REALIZED THEY NEEDED TO

ASK FOR HELP.

THAT'S WHEN CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" STARTED

A PRE-SCHOOL IN THEIR

COMMUNITY.

THERE THE CHILDREN ENJOY

HEALTHY LUNCHES.

MAWA EVEN WORKS PART-TIME

THERE AND IS BRINGING IN A

LITTLE EXTRA MONEY FOR THE

FAMILY.

BECAUSE OF "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," MY CHILDREN HAVE

NOT MISSED A SINGLE MEAL.

AND I LOVE TEACHING THE

OTHER CHILDREN BIBLE

STORIES AND SONGS.

Terry: AND THEN WE

WERE ABLE TO HELP KALA

STAY CLOSER TO HOME BY

GIVING HIM A BOAT ENGINE

AND A NEW NET.

I'M ABLE TO CATCH SO

MANY FISH AND CRAB, I CAN

BUY FOOD FOR MY FAMILY FOR

EVERY MEAL.

THANK YOU, CBN.

Terry: I'LL BET YOU

DIDN'T KNOW THAT SITTING

IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR

LIVING ROOM YOU COULD HAVE

THAT KIND OF AN IMPACT ON

A FAMILY IN THE SOUTHERN

PART OF THAILAND, HALF WAY

AROUND THE WORLD FROM

WHERE YOU ARE.

BUT YOU CAN.

AND THAT'S JUST ONE LITTLE

FAMILY.

CBN PARTNERS ARE HELPING

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

IF YOU'RE NOT A PART OF

THAT, YOU'RE MISSING OUT

ON A GREAT OPPORTUNITY.

I WANT TO INVITE YOU TO

JOIN WITH THE REST OF US.

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, $20

A MONTH TO BECOME A "700

CLUB" PARTNER.

WILL YOU DO THAT TODAY?

YOU DO THAT BY CALLING OUR

TOLL-FREE NUMBER RIGHT

THERE ON YOUR SCREEN:

1-800-700-7000.

YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com AND JOIN THAT

WAY, IF YOU WISH.

OUR WAY ARE SAYING THANK

YOU FOR BEING WILLING TO

CARE ABOUT OTHERS AND BE

GENEROUS IN HELPING THEM

IS TO SEND YOU THIS

TEACHING, "THE GOSPEL OF

JOHN."

PAT HAS GONE INTO THE

STUDIO AND READ THIS JUST

FOR YOU.

I LOVE THIS COMMENT FROM

JOHN IN KANE.

CALIFORNIA.

HE SAID, "THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR THE GOSPEL OF

JOHN C.D.

I'M A CHOVE FE CHAUFFEUR AND I

LISTEN WHILE I DRIVE."

I'M NOT A CHAUFFEUR, BUT I

LISTEN TO IT, TOO.

THIS FIRST E-MAIL COMES

FROM DENISE WHO SAYS, "MY

SON AND DAUGHTER HAVE BEEN

DECEIVED.

THEY THINK THE DEAD CAN

COME AND TALK TO THEM AND

TEACH THEM.

I'VE TRIED TELLING THEM

THE TRUTH BUT CAN'T GET

THROUGH TO THEM BECAUSE

THEIR PASTOR ALSO BELIEVES

THE SAME.

IT IS LIKE THEY'RE

BEWITCHED.

HOW CAN THEIR EYES BE

OPENED?

HELP."

Pat: A PASTOR -- THAT

GUY SHOULD GET DEFROCKED.

THE BIBLE SAYS, SHALL A

PERSON TURN TO SPIRITS

THAT PEEP AND MUTTER

INSTEAD OF GOING TO THE

LIVING GOD -- THIS IS

CALLED NECROMANCY.

THERE ARE DEMONIC SPIRITS

THAT POSE AS DEPARTED

RELATIVES.

IT IS AN ABSOLUTE

DECEPTION.

THESE PEOPLE WILL BE

DECEIVED AND LED INTO HELL

BEFORE IT IS OVER WITH

BECAUSE THAT'S THE GOAL OF

SATAN, IS TO KILL AND TO

STEAL AND TO DESTROY.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

HE HATES YOU.

AND SO THESE PEOPLE ARE

GIVING THEIR LIVES INTO

SOMETHING THAT WILL

DESTROY THEM.

AND IT WILL GET WORSE AND

WORSE AND WORSE.

AND BEFORE LONG, THEY'LL

BE HAVING TERRIBLE DREAMS.

THEY'LL BE HAVING TORMENT.

AND BEFORE LONG, SOMETHING

WILL TRY TO KILL THEM.

BUT THAT'S THE WAY IT IS.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: THIS IS MEGAN

WHO SAYS, "I'VE BEEN

GIVING MY TITHES TO CBN AS

OPPOSED TO A BRICK AND

MORTAR CHURCH.

DOES GOD CONSIDER AND

ACKNOWLEDGE IT AS MY

TITHE?"

Pat: I KNOW A LOT OF

PASTORS WILL GET MAD AT ME

IF I SAY OTHER THAN WHAT

THEY BELIEVE.

THEY ALWAYS SAY THAT THE

TITHE BELONGS TO THE

CHURCH.

BUT I THINK THE CHURCH IS

THE BODY OF CHRIST

WORLDWIDE.

AND THERE ARE MISSIONARY

PROGRAMS THAT ARE PART OF

THE CHURCH.

THEY'RE HUMANITARIAN, LIKE

"ORPHANS' PROMISE," PART

OF THE CHURCH.

THERE ARE EVANGELISTS,

PART OF THE CHURCH.

THERE ARE TEACHING

MINISTRIES, PART OF THE

CHURCH.

AND YOU GO THROUGH THE

LIST.

SO YOU'RE TITHE BELONGS TO

THE CHURCH, SURE, BUT

THAT'S THE WORLDWIDE, NOT

NECESSARILY -- I DON'T

KNOW WHY THE FACT THAT 10

OR 20 OR 30 OR 100 PEOPLE

GET TOGETHER TO HAVE A

CONGREGATION AND SUDDENLY

IT GIVES THEM SUPERIOR

CLAIM ON PEOPLE'S TITHES.

IF YOU MADE A COMMITMENT

AND YOU PLEDGE SO MUCH,

YOU FULFILL YOUR

COMMITMENT.

BUT OTHER THAN THAT,

WHATEVER THE LORD IS

SPEAKING TO YOU, AND THE

EXAMPLE WAS MILKISADEC AND

ABRAHAM.

AND THE THOUGHT WAS YOU

GIVE A TITHE WHERE YOU ARE

BLESSED.

Terry: THIS IS

BERNADINE WHO SAYS, "I'M

HAVING NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

FROM THE ENEMY AND

UNBELIEF IN MY MIND.

I WANT TO FIND A SCRIPTURE

I CAN MEMORIZE TO HELP ME.

WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?"

Pat: THE 103rd

PSALM.

"BLESS THE LORD, OH, MY

SOUL, AND BLESS HIS HOLY

NAME."

READ THAT OVER AND OVER

AGAIN, PSALMS 103.

Terry: VERONICA SAYS,

"FOUR YEARS AGO I GAVE MY

LIFE TO CHRIST, AND NOW I

HAVE HAD MANY MORE DREAMS

OF CHRIST, VERY VIVID

DREAMS OF MY PREACHING.

IS THIS A SIGN FROM GOD?

IS GOD TRYING TO TELL ME

HE WANTS ME TO BE A

PASTOR?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW IF

THAT IS THE CASE OR NOT.

BUT YOU HAVE A TALENT,

OBVIOUSLY, TO SHARE THE

GOSPEL.

BLOOM WHERE YOU'RE

PLANTED, AS THE SAYING

GOES.

AND START TELLING PEOPLE

ABOUT THE LORD.

AND MAYBE A SMALL GROUP

WILL GATHER AROUND.

THAT DOESN'T NECESSARILY

MAKE YOU A PASTOR.

THERE ARE VARIOUS OFFICES

IN THE CHURCH.

THERE ARE PASTORS AND

TEACHERS AND EVANGELISTS

AND SO FORTH.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR

GIFTING OR CALLING IS, BUT

OBVIOUSLY GOD HAS PUT A

BURDEN UPON YOU TO SHARE

THE GOSPEL.

DO THAT AND SEE WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

LUKE 18: "THE THINGS WHICH

ARE IMPOSSIBLE WITH MAN

ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD."

> WELL, TOMORROW, ONE OF

THE YOUNGEST MEMBERS OF

THE U.S. OLYMPIC TRACK AND

FIELD TEAM -- SHE'S GOT

HER EYES SET ON MORE THAN

GOLD.

THAT'S ON FRIDAY.

FOR TERRY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON, AND

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
