700 Club Interactive - God of Miracles - January 20, 2017

A kayaker has to find a way to survive after falling into icy waters more than a mile from shore. Read Transcript


FEBRUARY 19, 2016.

WE HAD NEVER BEEN OUT

ON WATER THAT COLD BEFORE.

Gordon: A CAPSIZED

KAYAK.

OH, MY GOODNESS, WHAT

AM I GOING TO DO?

I WAS TOO FAR OUT, AND THE

WATER WAS TOO COLD FOR ME

TO SURVIVE.

Gordon: A FATHER

SURVIVES HYPOTHERMIA.

IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN

GOD, YOU NEED TO RIGHT

NOW.

Gordon: WELCOME TO

THE SHOW.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN

MIRACLES?

MICHAEL AND DERRICK TRAIN

DO.

WHEN THE FATHER AND SON

PUT THEIR TWO KAYAKS IN

THE ICY WATERS OF

MICHIGAN, THEY KNEW THEY

HAD TO TAKE SPECIAL

PRECAUTIONS, AND THEY DID.

BUT NOTHING COULD HAVE

PREPARED THEM FOR WHAT

HAPPENED WHEN A SWELL HIT

MICHAEL'S KAYAK, SPILLING

HIM INTO THE FRIGID LAKE.

Reporter: MICHAEL AND

HIS 17-YEAR-OLD SON,

DERRICK, HAD BEEN KAYAKING

MANY TIMES BEFORE, BUT

THIS APRIL AFTERNOON WAS

DIFFERENT.

WE HAD NEVER BEEN OUT

ON WATER THAT COLD BEFORE.

WE WERE GOING TO DO THIS

FOR THE EXPERIENCE.

WE WERE GOING TO GO OUT,

HAVE FUN, AND COME BACK.

AND OUR INTENTION WAS AN

HOUR, AT MOST.

AND THEN COME BACK BEFORE

IT GOT DARK.

Reporter: MICHAEL

REMINDED HIS SON TO BE

CAREFUL.

HE GAVE ME A QUICK

BRIEFING, LIKE, DON'T MESS

AROUND.

Reporter: THEY

PADDLED OUT ABOUT

THREE-QUARTERS OF A MILE

TO GET PAST THE CHOPPY

WATERS CLOSE TO THE SHORE.

THE SWELLS WERE

PROBABLY THREE TO FOUR

FEET, BUT THEY WERE

ROLLING.

IT IS ACTUALLY VERY

CALMING, ONCE YOU GET OUT

INTO THE OPEN WATER.

Reporter: BUT AS THEY

TURNED TO HEAD BACK,

MICHAEL'S KAYAK STARTED

TAKING ON WATER.

THEN A LARGE SWELL HIT THE

KAYAK, THROWING MICHAEL

INTO THE FRIGID LAKE.

OH, MY GOODNESS, WHAT

AM I GOING TO DO.

Reporter: MICHAEL

KNEW HIS ODDS OF MAKING IT

OUT OF THIS ALIVE WERE

SLIM.

MY INITIAL REACTION, TO

BE HONEST, WAS, I'M GOING

TO DIE HERE.

ALL OF MY TRAINING, ALL OF

MY SWIMMING THAT I'VE EVER

BEEN THROUGH, I RECOGNIZED

THAT I WAS TOO FAR OUT,

THE WATER WAS TOO COLD FOR

ME TO SURVIVE THE DISTANCE

BACK TO THE BEACH.

Reporter: YET HE MADE

UP HIS MIND TO FIGHT FOR

HIS LIFE.

I LITERALLY THOUGHT, IF

GOD WANTS ME TODAY, YOU'RE

GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE ME

BECAUSE I'M NOT GOING TO

GIVE UP.

Reporter: MICHAEL

SWAM TO DERRICK'S KAYAK,

BUT COULDN'T GET IN

WITHOUT SINKING THEM.

HE HELD ON TO A HANDLE ON

THE BACK OF THE KAYAK AS

BOTH PADDLED TOWARDS

SHORE.

I DID DO A LITTLE BIT

OF PRAYING, THAT GOD WOULD

HELP US PULL THROUGH THIS

AND HELP MY DAD PULL

THROUGH THIS.

Reporter: WITHIN 10

MINUTES, MICHAEL'S BODY

WAS SHUTTING DOWN.

I HAD BECOME SO WEAK

THAT MY HANDS SLIPPED OUT

OF THE HANDLE, AND I WENT

UNDER WATER, COMPLETELY

UNDER WATER.

Reporter: THREE TIMES

MICHAEL SLIPPED UNDER THE

WATER.

THEY HAD GOTTEN TO ABOUT

150 YARDS FROM SHORE, WHEN

SEVERAL YOUNG MEN WALKING

ON THE BEACH SPOTTED THEM.

9-1-1, WHAT IS YOUR

EXACT LOCATION?

I'M HERE ON THE DUNES

BEACH, BY THE NASHVILLE

PARK, AND THERE IS SOMEONE

OUT IN THE WATER, AND

SOMEONE IN A KAYAK, AND

THEY'RE YELLING FOR HELP.

Reporter: TWO RAN OUT

TO HELP WHILE ANOTHER

CALLED 9-1-1.

THEY CAME INTO THE

WATER, AND TWO MEN GRABBED

ME, PICKED ME UP, AND

TURNED ME UP ON TO THE

BEACH.

HOW LONG HAS HE BEEN IN

THE WATER?

THEY THINK, LIKE, 20

MINUTES.

THEY JUST GOT HIM OUT.

THEY'RE WALKING HIM UP TO

THE PAVILION.

IT WAS A LITTLE SCARY,

A LITTLE SCARY.

HE'S MY DAD, SO IF I WERE

TO LOSE HIM, I WOULD FEEL

LIKE IT WAS MY FAULT.

Reporter: SOON

EMERGENCY RESPONDERS

ARRIVE AND TOOK HIM TO

PORTER REGIONAL HOSPITAL.

AS DOCTORS TREATED HIM FOR

HYPOTHERMIA, THEY KNEW IT

COULD GO EITHER WAY.

WHEN MICHAEL CAME IN,

THIS TEMPERATURE WAS

AROUND 84, WHICH IS

CLASSIFIED AS MODERATE

HYPOTHERMIA.

AT THAT LEVEL, YOUR HEART

RATE TENDS TO SLOW DOWN.

AND YOUR HEART COULD GO

INTO AN ARRHYTHMIA THAT IS

NOT COMPATIBLE WITH LIFE.

Reporter: BUT AS

MICHAEL'S BODY TEMPERATURE

APPROACHED NORMAL, IT WAS

CLEAR HE WAS GOING TO BE

FINE.

ONCE I BECAME STABLE,

AND I WAS STARTING TO GET

MY MENTAL CAPACITY BACK,

THAT'S WHEN I STARTED

BEING THANKFUL TO GOD THAT

I WAS ALIVE.

Reporter: IN FACT,

AFTER ONLY FOUR HOURS IN

THE HOSPITAL, MICHAEL WAS

FREE TO GO HOME.

THE PHYSICIAN WALKED

IN, AND I'LL NEVER FORGET

THIS -- HE HAD MY MEDICAL

CHART IN HIS HAND, AND

LITERALLY THREW IT ON THE

COUNTER AND LOOKED RIGHT

AT ME, AND HE SAID, IF YOU

DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD, YOU

NEED TO RIGHT NOW.

AND HE SAID, I CAN'T

BELIEVE I'M GOING TO SAY

THIS, BUT HE GOES, I HAVE

NO REASON TO KEEP YOU.

WE'RE GOING TO RELEASE

YOU.

Reporter: FROM THE

YOUNG MEN APPEARING AT THE

RIGHT TIME, TO HIS QUICK

AND FULL RECOVERY, MICHAEL

SAYS THERE IS ONLY ONE

EXPLANATION.

I DEFINITELY KNOW THAT

IT WAS GOD.

THROUGH THIS WHOLE

PROCESS.

TO HAVE THE ABILITY --

JUST THE PHYSICAL STRENGTH

AND THE MENTAL STRENGTH TO

MAKE IT BACK TO THE BEACH

WAS BEYOND MY CAPACITY.

AND TO HAVE EVERYTHING

HAPPEN IN THE SEQUENCE

THAT IT DID WAS JUST A

CONFIRMATION FOR ME OF THE

EXISTENCE OF GOD.

Reporter: DR. MICHAEL

WOODS WOULD AGREE.

IT SOUNDS LIKE A

MIRACLE TO ME.

IT WAS GREAT THAT HE WAS

ABLE TO PULL THROUGH.

THERE IS NO LONG-TERM

SEQUELLY, AS WE CALL IT,

WHERE YOU HAVE AN INJURY

AND YOU LIVE WITH AN

INJURY FOR A LONG PERIOD

OF TIME.

GOD GAVE HIM THE

STRENGTH TO PULL THROUGH

AND PUSH, JUST KEEP

HOLDING ON.

Reporter: HE AND HIS

FAMILY ARE THANKFUL FOR

GOD'S PROTECTION AND

GRACE.

GOD WAS THERE THE WHOLE

TIME, IN KEEPING ME ALIVE,

AND HE GAVE ME THE

STRENGTH AND THE WILL TO

FIGHT.

THAT'S WHERE THAT CAME

FROM.

THAT WASN'T MINE; THAT WAS

HIT.

I ONLY ENDURED A SHORT

AMOUNT OF PAIN AND TRAUMA,

WHICH IS A MIRACLE IN

ITSELF.

THAT'S GOD THAT'S WORKING.

I SHOULD HAVE DIED, AND HE

PULLED ME OUT OF THAT.

SO IT IS A STORY ABOUT HOW

GOD CAN PERFORM MIRACLES.

I AM BLESSED BECAUSE HE

CHOSE TO SAVE ME.

AND THEN HE PULLED ME OUT

OF THE WATER ALIVE.

Gordon: I SHOULD HAVE

DIED, BUT GOD SAVED ME.

HE PULLED ME OUT OF THE

WATER ALIVE.

GOD WANTS TO BE OUR VERY

PRESENT HELP IN TIME OF

TROUBLE.

WHEN YOU'RE IN NEED, YOU

CAN ALWAYS CALL ON HIM.

> STILL AHEAD, A BIKER

WHO TRIED TO SAVE A CAT

AND THEN ALMOST LOST THE

USE OF HER ARM.

HE SAID YOUR TENDONS

AND LIGAMENTS, THEY ARE

NOT CONNECTED ANYMORE.

ALL OF THOSE STRANDS ARE

SHOT.

Gordon: HEAR HOW THEY

WERE SUPERNATURALLY

Gordon: FOR YEARS,

DIANA SELLERS ENDURED PAIN

EVERY DAY.

IT STARTED WHEN HE CRASHED

HER MOTORCYCLE.

AND THE PAIN REMAINED

UNTIL THE DAY DIANA

WATCHED "THE 700 CLUB."

Reporter: DIANA

SELLER'S DAY BEGAN LIKE

ANY OTHER.

SHE WOKE UP EARLY, HOPPED

ON HER MOTORCYCLE, AND

HEADED TO THE GYM.

THEN ON THE WAY, A CAT RAN

IN FRONT OF HER, AND DIANA

HIT THE BRAKES.

SO I SLOWLY -- IT WAS A

STOP AND DROP.

MEANING YOU DROP YOUR BIKE

SLOWLY.

THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW

IS, WE'RE LAYING ON THE

PAVEMENT.

Reporter: NEITHER

WERE HURT, BUT NOW DIANA

HAD TO GET HER BIKE UP.

I THOUGHT, I'VE PICKED

IT UP BEFORE.

IT IS 600 PLUS POUNDS.

I'VE DONE THIS BEFORE.

I WAS LIFTING THE

MOTORCYCLE UP, AND I FELT

IN MY LEFT SHOULDER A

BURNING SENSATION, AND I

KNEW SOMETHING WAS ODD.

Reporter: SHE MADE IT

TO THE GYM BUT COULDN'T DO

HER NORMAL WORKOUT.

SO SHE WENT TO THE DOCTOR,

WHO TOLD HER HER LEFT

SHOULDER HAD A ROTATOR

CUFF AND SHE WOULD NEED

SURGERY.

HE SAID, YOUR TENDONS

AND LIGAMENTS ARE NOT

CONNECTED ANYMORE.

ALL OF THOSE STRANDS WERE

SHOT.

Reporter: AND THERE

WAS ALSO A SLIGHT TEAR IN

THE RIGHT SHOULDER THAT

WOULD ONLY REQUIRE

PHYSICAL THERAPY.

BUT AFTER DIANA WENT

THROUGH SURGERY AND

THERAPY, THE PAIN

PERSISTED.

BEFORE THE INCIDENT, I

COULD DO EVERYTHING.

I WOULD PUT STUFF UP IN

THE KITCHEN, BECAUSE I'D

HAVE TO LIFT UP HEAVY

DINNERWARE AND COOKWARE.

I HAD NO PROBLEM.

AFTER THAT, I HAD TO GET A

STOOL AND GET UP TO THAT

LEVEL.

THINGS WOULD TAKE A LOT

LONGER TO DO.

Reporter: THE PAIN

CONTINUED FOR TWO MORE

YEARS.

THEN ONE DAY SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB"

WHEN GORDON WAS PRAYING

FOR VIEWERS.

I LIKE LISTENING TO THE

PRAYERS BECAUSE I LIKE TO

PRAY FOR PEOPLE.

SO I'M PRAYING FOR THE

PEOPLE THAT TERRY AND

GORDON WERE TALKING ABOUT.

THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW, I

HEAR THE WORD ROTATOR

CUFF.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH A TORN ROTOR

ROTATOR CUFF, AND THERE

ARE TENDONS THAT WERE

DESTROYED IN THE ACCIDENT.

GOD IS ABLE TO RESTORE

TENDONS AND RESTORE

MOVEMENT.

WHAT THE DOCTORS SAY IS

IMPOSSIBLE, IS POSSIBLE

WITH GOD.

I PRAYED, PLEASE, GOD,

LET THAT BE ME.

I RAN OUT THERE TO OUR

WEIGHT ROOM, AND WE HAVE A

45-POUND BARBELL, AND I

LIFTED THAT THING UP OVER

MY HEAD.

AND THERE WAS NO PAIN.

AND AS SOON AS I WAS ABLE

TO DO THAT, I DROPPED TO

MY KNEES AND THANKED HIM.

YES.

Reporter: DIANA SAYS

THE HEALING GAVE HER A NEW

PERSPECTIVE ON GOD.

IT JUST PUT ME CLOSER

TO HIM.

LIKE ANYTHING AND

EVERYTHING, YOU JUST WANT

TO SHOW HIS GOODNESS TO

EVERYBODY YOU MEET.

Gordon: AND HE WANTS

TO SHOW HIS GOODNESS TO

YOU.

REALIZE THAT JESUS CAME

FOR YOU.

IF YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE

TO EVER BELIEVE, HE STILL

WOULD HAVE COME FOR YOU.

THE BIBLE SAYS HE LEAVES

THE 99 TO GO AFTER THE

ONE.

AND YOU CAN BE THAT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

UNDERSTAND IT.

THE BIBLE SAYS,

WHOSOEVER -- THAT CAN BE

YOU.

IF ANY OF YOU ARE SICK --

THAT'S YOU.

IF ANY ARE SICK, LET THEM

ASK.

LET THEM ASK FOR PRAYER.

AND THE PRAYER OF FAITH

WILL RAISE THEM UP.

THE PRAYER OF FAITH.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

IT JUST MEANS THAT YOU

BELIEVE.

YOU BELIEVE THAT JESUS

CAME, THAT HE LIVED A

SINLESS LIFE, THAT HE DIED

ON THE CROSS FOR YOU, THAT

BY HIS STRIPES YOU WERE

HEALED, YOU ARE HEALED.

THE GOOD NEWS DOESN'T STOP

THERE.

HE ROSE AGAIN FROM THE

GRAVE.

HE DIED, YES, BUT HE ROSE

AGAIN.

AND THAT SAME RESURRECTION

POWER IS AVAILABLE FOR

YOU.

THESE ARE INCREDIBLE

THINGS, ABSOLUTELY

INCREDIBLE, THAT GOD, THE

CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE,

THE ONE WHO SPOKE IT ALL

INTO BEING WITH THE WORD,

CARES ENOUGH ABOUT YOU

THAT HE NUMBERS THE VERY

HAIRS ON YOUR HEAD.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE

THOUGHT.

YOU LOOK AT THE SKY, YOU

SEE THE HEAVENS STRETCHED

OUT, AND JUST THE AMAZING

MULTITUDE OF GALAXIES.

AND HERE THE CREATOR OF

ALL OF THAT SAYS, I LOVE

YOU.

I CAME FOR YOU.

I DID ALL OF THIS SO THAT

YOU AND I COULD HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP.

WE COULD BE TOGETHER.

HIS DREAM FOR YOU AND ME

WAS THAT WE WOULD LIVE IN

A GARDEN, AND EVERYTHING

WOULD BE TAKEN CARE OF.

AND THAT IN THE COOL OF

THE EVENING HE WOULD COME

DOWN AND TALK WITH US.

NOW, WE MESSED THAT UP.

WE WENT OUR WAY.

WE DIDN'T TRUST WHAT HE

SAID.

BUT GOD NEVER GAVE UP ON

HIS DREAM.

HE KEPT WORKING.

HE KEPT PLANNING.

HE MADE A WAY, AND ALL WE

HAVE TO DO IS WALK INTO

IT.

IT'S THAT SIMPLE.

FOR DIANA, SHE PRAYED FOR

A COUPLE OF YEARS.

FOR OTHERS, AND A MIRACLE

HAPPENS FOR HER.

> WHEN WE COME BACK, SEE

HOW A LITTLE GIRL HELPED

HER ALCOHOLIC FATHER QUIT

DRINKING AFTER WATCHING

"SUPERBOOK."

STAY WITH US.

Gordon: CBN'S

ANIMATED SERIES

"SUPERBOOK," IS BRINGING

THE STORIES OF THE BIBLE

TO THE CHILDREN OF THE

WORLD.

IT IS ALSO CHANGING THEIR

LIVES, AND THE LIVES OF

THEIR FAMILIES.

JUST ASK SHEMNI.

WHO IS A YOUNG INDIAN

GIRL, WHO TOOK THE

PRINCIPLES SHE LEARNED

FROM "SUPERBOOK" TO SAVE

HER PARENTS' MARRIAGE.

Reporter: SHEMNI HAD

TO DROP OUT OF SCHOOL

AFTER HER DAD LOST HIS JOB

AND COULDN'T PAY HER

TUITION.

HER PARENTS WERE ALSO ON

THE BRINK OF DIVORCE.

IT ALL STEMMED FROM HER

FATHER'S DRINKING PROBLEM.

WHEN MY DAD CAME HOME

DRUNK, HE WOULD YELL AT US

FOR NO REASON.

WHEN I WAS STILL IN

SCHOOL, I COULD HARDLY GET

ANY SLEEP BECAUSE I HAD TO

WAIT UNTIL HE FELL ASLEEP

BEFORE IT WAS QUIET ENOUGH

FOR ME TO STUDY.

Reporter: DURING THAT

TIME, HER AUNT TOOK HER TO

A CHRISTIAN YOUTH GROUP.

IT WAS THERE THAT SHEMNI

WATCHED "SUPERBOOK."

WHEN GOD TOLD MOSES TO

DELIVER THE SLAVES FROM

BONDAGE, MOSES WAS AFRAID.

BUT GOLD TOLD HIM, MOSES,

WHY ARE YOU AFRAID WHEN I

AM WITH YOU?

Reporter: AS SHE

WATCHED OTHER "SUPERBOOK"

EPISODES, SHE WAS

ENCOURAGED TO READ THE

BIBLE AND PRAY TO JESUS.

SO SHE STARTED PRAYING AT

HER DAD'S BEDSIDE WHILE HE

WAS PASSED OUT DRUNK.

I WOULD PRAY FOR MY DAD

TO STOP DRINKING AND THAT

MY PARENTS WOULD LOVE EACH

OTHER AGAIN.

Reporter: AS HER

FAITH INCREASED, SO DID

HER COURAGE.

SHE EVENTUALLY TALKED TO

HER DAD ABOUT HIS

DRINKING.

SHEMNI SAID, DAD, WHAT

YOU ARE DOING IS NOT

RIGHT.

YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND IT

IS CAUSING MANY PROBLEMS.

Reporter: THEN SHEMNI

INVITED THE YOUTH GROUP

TEACHER, AND HER HUSBAND,

WHO IS A PASTOR, TO COME

TO HER HOME.

THEY PRAYED TO JESUS TO

HELP ME.

I FELT SOMETHING IN MY

LIFT UP.

SO FROM THAT POINT ON MY

ADDICTION SLOWLY WENT

AWAY.

Reporter: SHEMNI'S

PARENTS' MARRIAGE WAS

RESTORED.

HER DAD GOT A NEW JOB AS A

REPAIRMAN, AND SHE WAS

ABLE TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL.

WHEN I SAW HOW JESUS

ANSWERED OUR PRAYERS, I

KNEW HE WAS THE ONE TRUE

GOD.

Reporter: SHEMNI

WANTS TO BE A POLICE

OFFICER WHEN SHE GROWS UP,

SO SHE CAN HELP OTHER

STRUGGLING FAMILIES.

"SUPERBOOK" TAUGHT ME

THAT GOD IS ALWAYS WITH

US.

SO THERE IS NO REASON TO

BE AFRAID.

AFTER I ACCEPTED JESUS

INTO MY HEART, I HAVE BEEN

VERY HAPPY AND FILLED WITH

GREAT JOY.

Gordon: A LITTLE

CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

A LITTLE CHILD SHALL LEAD

THEM.

AND HERE A LITTLE CHILD,

WATCHING A CARTOON, GETS

THE IDEA THAT SHE CAN PRAY

FOR HER FATHER, AND HE CAN

BE DELIVERED FROM

ALCOHOLISM, AND WONDERFUL

THINGS CAN HAPPEN.

ALL BECAUSE PEOPLE SAID,

YES, I WANT TO BE A PART

OF THIS.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF

SEEING THE STORIES OF THE

BIBLE GO TO THE CHILDREN

OF THE WORLD.
