A motorcycle accident causes a massive brain injury as one family clings to their last hope. Plus, Franklin Graham faces off agains the world’s most dangerous virus. Read Transcript


Wendy: COMING UP...AS

TRUMP PLEDGES TO DRAIN THE

SWAMP, HE HAS TAPPED A NEW

MAN TO CLEAN OUT THE

E.P.A.

CBN NEWS SPEAKS WITH THOSE

WHO KNOW THE REAL SCOTT

PRUITT.

I THINK THOSE CONCERNS

ARE MISGUIDED.

Wendy: AND THEN

FRANKLIN GRAHAM FACES OFF

AGAINST THE WORLD'S MOST

DANGEROUS VIRUS.

JESUS CHRIST DIDN'T

RUN.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS.

WENDY GRIFFITH IS WITH US

TODAY.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A

GREAT SHOW.

WENDY, DID YOU EVER HAVE A

SECRET YOU WANTED TO TELL

PEOPLE AND YOU COULDN'T?

Wendy: OH, YES.

IT IS THE WORST THING.

Pat: IT'S HORRIBLE.

Wendy: WHEN YOU HAVE

TO HOLD IT --

Pat: THEY TOLD ME A

COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO THAT

THE PICK WAS GOING TO BE

GORSUCH --

Wendy: JAY SEKULOW?

Pat: YES.

AND I WAS ON THIS PROGRAM

ARGUING ABOUT SOME CAB

DRIVER GOING TO BE THE

SUPREME COURT NOMINEE, AND

I KNOW HE WOULDN'T, AND I

KNEW BETTER, BUT I WASN'T

GOING TO STEAL DONALD

TRUMP'S THUNDER, NO WAY IN

THE WORLD.

BUT HE ANNOUNCED HIS

SUPREME COURT PICK LAST

NIGHT, AND HE IS BEING

CALLED A STRONG

CONSTITUTIONAL

CONSERVATIVE.

HE IS A FEDERAL JUDGE ON

THE 10th CIRCUIT.

NEIL GORDONNEIL GORSUCH, AND HIS

SUPPORTERS SAY HE IS RIGHT

IN THE MODEL O MOLD OF THE MAN HE

WOULD BE REPLACING,

ANTONIN SCALIA.

Wendy: AND SOME

DEMOCRATS ARE ALREADY

COMPRISING TO OPPOSE HIS

NOMINATION.

PAUL STRAND BRINGS US THIS

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP KNEW THIS CHOICE

REALLY MATTERED TO THOSE

WHO ELECTED HIM.

VOTERS WHO SAID THE

SUPREME COURT WAS THEIR

NUMBER ONE ISSUE, 56%

VOTED FOR HIM.

President Trump: I

PROMISE TO SELECT SOMEONE

WHO REFLECTS O OU OUR LAWS AND

SOMEONE WHO IS

REPRESENTATIVE OF OUR

CONSTITUTION AND WHO LOVES

OUR CONSTITUTION.

IT IS VITAL TO THE

PROTECTION TO THE PEOPLE'S

LIBERTIES UNDER LAW, AND

TO THE CONTINUITY OF OUR

CONSTITUTION, THE GREATEST

CHARTER OF HUMAN LIBERTY

THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN.

Reporter: JOHN MALCOM

GAVE US HIS GRADE ON THE

PICK.

HE WILL BE A

SUPERLATIVE SUPREME COURT

JUSTICE.

HE HAS A SPARKLING

WRITING STYLE, MUCH LIKE

ANTONIN SCALIA, BUT MORE

IMPORTANT, HE IS A VERY,

VERY DEEP THINKER, WHO HAS

WRITTEN SOME SCHOLARLY

OPINIONS ON A WHOLE HOST

OF ISSUES.

Reporter: SENATE

DEMOCRATS HAVE PROMISED A

BRUISING BATTLE OVER

CONFIRMATION.

YOU'RE LIKELY TO HEAR OVER

AND OVER AGAIN HOW TRUMP'S

PICK IS EXTREME AND NOT

MAINSTREAM.

IT LED TO THIS QUESTION

FROM CBN NEWS' DAVID

BRODY.

BEFORE THEY'VE EVEN

HEARD WHO THIS INDIVIDUAL

IS, YOU HAVE SOME SAYING

ABSOLUTELY NO.

THAT SHOWS YOU IT IS ALL

ABOUT POLITICS, NOT

QUALIFICATIONS.

WHEN HE WAS NOMINATED

TO THE 10th CIRCUIT

COURT OF APPEALS, HE WAS

CONFIRMED BY THE SENATE

UNANIMOUSLY.

I ONLY HOPE THAT BOTH

DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS

CAN COME TOGETHER FOR ONCE

FOR THE GOOD OF THE

COUNTRY.

Reporter: MALCOM

KNOWS THE DEMOCRATS ARE

GOING TO ATTACK, BUT HE IS

NOT SURE HOW.

YOU CAN NEVER REALLY

REPLACE A LEGAL LION LIKE

ANTONIN SCALIA, BUT NEIL

GORSUCH SURELY FITS THE

MOLD.

I EXPECT AT THE END OF THE

DAY HE WILL GET CONFIRMED,

DESPITE SOME HEATED

OPPOSITION FROM SOME

PRETTY MAD DEMOCRATS.

I CONSIDER THE UNITED

STATES SENATE THE

DELIBERATETIVE BODY OF OUR

WORLD.

Reporter: AND THE

SENATE HAS DELAYED ON

MOVING SOME OF THE

CONFIRMATIONS, BUT GORSUCH

COULD FACE THE HARDEST

BATTLE OF THEM ALL.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: HE IS AN

INCREDIBLE PICK.

HE IS VETTED BY THE

HERITAGE FOUNDATION,

VETTED BY VERY

DISTINGUISHED LEGAL

SCHOLARS.

JAY SEKULOW IS WITH US.

AND JAY HAD THE WORD A

COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, TOLD

ME, AND I HAD TO SIT HERE

AND ACT LIKE I DIDN'T

KNOW.

JAY, THAT WAS A HARD TASK.

YOU NEVER CAN BE 100%

SURE.

SO I TOLD YOU THAT WAS THE

SENSE WE WERE GETTING AND

WHAT WAS CIRCULATING, BUT

UNTIL IT WAS ANNOUNCED,

YOU DIDN'T KNOW.

IT'S A GREAT PICK.

BY THE WAY, PAT, WE

APPEARED BEFORE JUDGE

GORSUCH IN A 10

COMMANDMENT CASE, AND WE

WON 9-0.

THE CONSENT HE SIGNED IN

OUR FAVOR SERVED AS THE

BASIS OF THAT CASE.

THIS IS SOMEONE WE'VE HAD

EXPERIENCE WITH ON A

NUMBER OF OCCASIONS, AND

HE HAS A GREAT JUDICIAL

RECORD.

I DON'T THINK THEY'LL BE

ABLE TO MOUNT THE

FILIBUSTER.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE

ABLE TO DO IT.

Pat: HE HAS SUCH A

DISTINGUISHED RECORD.

HE CLERKED FOR KENNEDY AND

HE ALSO CLERKED FOR BRYAN

WHITE.

RIGHT.

Pat: HE HAS

TREMENDOUS SUPREME COURT

EXPERIENCE.

HE WAS CONFIRMED

UNANIMOUSLY FOR THE 10th

CIRCUIT.

HOW CAN THEY COME AFTER

HIM?

WELL, THE GROUPS ON THE

LEFT, THE ACLU, PEOPLE FOR

THE AMERICAN WAY AND

OTHERS, THEY'RE GOING TO

SAY HE IS AN EXTREMIST,

AND THAT MEANS, CODE WORD,

THEY'RE CONCERNED HE IS

PRO-LIFE.

HE WROTE A BOOK ON YOUTH

EUTHANASIA, AND HE WROTE

IN A CASE ON DEFUNDING

PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

THAT'S HOW THEY'RE GOING

TO MOUNT THE CHALLENGE.

YOU'RE ALREADY SEEING

DEMOCRATS STARTING TO PEEL

OFF.

IF THEY FILIBUSTER NEIL NEIL

GORSUCH, ALL THE

REPUBLICANS HAVE TO DO IS

WALK THROUGH THE DOOR THAT

HARRY REID ALREADY KICKED

OPEN WITH THE NUCLEAR

OPTION.

IT IS A FREE COUNTRY.

THEY CAN TRY WHATEVER THEY

WANT TO DO.

IN ABOUT 10 WEEKS, WE'RE

GOING TO BE CALLING JUDGE

GORSUCH JUSTICE GORSUCH.

Pat: I BELIEVE IT.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE TALKING

ABOUT A STOLEN SEAT.

THE REPUBLICANS DIDN'T

VOTE ON GARLAND.

BUT THEY HAD THEM SAYING

YOU SHOULDN'T VOTE DURING

AN ELECTION YEAR.

HE SAID IT ON THE FLOOR

OF THE UNITED STATES

SENATE.

WHEN YOU'RE IN AN ELECTION

YEAR, YOU DON'T PUT THE

NOMINEE THROUGH.

ALL OF THE DEMOCRATS LINED

UP ON HIM.

THEY CAN CRY OVER THAT AND

SAY WHATEVER THEY WANT TO

SAY, BUT ELECTIONS HAVE

CONSEQUENCES AND THEY LOST

THE SENATE.

YOU HAVE 10 SENATE SEATS

THAT ARE UP, AND YOU KNOW

THIS BETTER THAN I DID,

CERTAINLY -- 10 SENATE

SEATS UP IN STATES WHERE

DONALD TRUMP WON.

ARE THEY GOING TO BLOCK

NEIL GORSUCH, WHO RECEIVED

A VOTE THAT WAS CONFIRMED

WITH NO OBJECTION TO THE

10th CIRCUIT COURT OF

APPEAL, HAS A STERLING

RECORD -- ARE THEY GOING

TO STONEWALL HIM AND TRY

TO FILIBUSTER AND RUN THE

RISK OF THE REPUBLICANS

BREAKING THAT FILIBUSTER,

WHICH WOULD HAPPEN.

MITCHELL McCONNELL WAS

VERY CLEAR.

HE SAID HE IS GOING TO BE

CONFIRMED.

AND I TAKE HIM ON HIS WORD

ON THAT.

Pat: THE THING ABOUT

SCHUMER, HE IS SO -- YOU

TALK ABOUT EXTREME.

HE VOTED AGAINST ELAINE

SHALLE, AND SHE IS

MITCHELL McCONNELL'S

WIFE.

THAT'S THE PETTINESS OF

THE POLITICAL ARENA WE'RE

IN.

WE HAVE A VACANCY TO BE

FILLED FOR ANTONIN SCALIA.

THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE

THAT BY THIS SUMMER

THEY'LL BE ANOTHER

VACANCY.

AND THE FACT OF THE MATTER

IS, THIS IS THE SUPREME

COURT FOR THE REST OF OUR

LIVES.

I'VE BEEN TRYING TO AVOID

GETTING A CASE UP TO THE

COURT FOR THE LAST EIGHT

YEARS BECAUSE OF THE WAY

THE COURT HAS BEEN

DIVIDED.

THIS, BY THE WAY, RESTORES

THE BALANCE.

IT IS A SLIGHT MAJORITY.

THE NEXT JUSTICE COULD

WELL TIP THAT BALANCE, SAY

IF IT WAS JUSTICE BRIER,

JUSTICE GINSBURG OR

JUSTICE KENNEDY.

ALTHOUGH JUSTICE KENNEDY

GENERALLY RULES IN OUR

FAVOR.

WE'RE COMING TO THAT POINT

WHERE THE COURT

IDEOLOGICALLY,

PHILOSOPHICALLY, IS GOING

TO MAKE A SHIFT.

WE'RE NOT THERE YET.

BUT THIS IS A PERFECT

NOMINATION TO FILL THE

SEAT OF THE LATE, GREAT

JUSTICE A ANTONIN SCALIA.

SOMEONE I HAD THE

PRIVILEGE OF APPEARING

BEFORE IN THE LAST 15

YEARS.

THE HOB LO HOBBY LOBBY CASE WAS

THE MAIN CASE.

WE HAD, I THINK, FIVE OF

THOSE.

THE HOBBY LOBBY CASE, THE

SUMON CASE, THE 10

COMMANDMENT CASE, AND A

NUMBER OF OTHER CASES

WE'VE BEEN BEFORE JUDGE

GORSUCH.

AND HIS RULINGS ARE GREAT.

THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT

WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO GET

SOMETHING OVERTURNED.

Pat: YOU'RE VERY

OPTMISTIC.

DO YOU THINK KENNEDY IS

GOING TO BE THE NEXT?

HE IS KIND OF A

CONSERVATIVE SWING VOTE?

I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT

FOR JUSTICE KENNEDY.

THEY DON'T ALWAYS GET THEM

RIGHT.

BUT JUSTICE SCALIA WAS

WITH US ON EVERY SINGLE

CASE WE BROUGHT.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT WILL BE

JUSTICE KENNEDY, BUT I

SUSPECT THERE COULD WELL

BE A VACANCY, AND I THINK

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE OTHER

NOMINEES COME FORWARD IN

THE MOLD OF WHAT YOU JUST

SAW WITH GORSUCH.

Pat: JAY, ONE LAST

QUESTION, BECAUSE IT, OF

COURSE, WORRIES ME -- WE

USED TO THINK THAT THE JOB

OF JUDGES WAS TO INTERPRET

THE CONSTITUTION.

AND NOW WE HAVE A GROUP OF

PEOPLE WHO THINK ABOUT THE

SOCIAL ISSUES OF THE DAY.

WHO IS GOING TO WIN?

I THINK RIGHT NOW THE

TIP IS SLIGHTLY IN FAVOR

OF THE ORIGINALIST

TEXTURE.

JUSTICES LIKE SCALIA, AND

JUSTICES LIKE GORSUCH,

WHEN HE IS CONFIRMED -- IS

THE DOCUMENT A LIVING AND

BREATHING DOCUMENT, OR IS

IT A DOCUMENT WRITTEN BY

THE FOUNDERS AND SHOULD BE

INTERPRETED IN THAT LIGHT.

IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE

CONSTITUTION, YOU CAN, BUT

YOU HAVE TO DO IT THROUGH

THE AMENDMENT PROCESS, AND

THAT'S THE PEOPLE, NOT THE

COURT.

Pat: JAY, THANK YOU

SO MUCH.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU, PAT.

Pat: WENDY, IT IS AN

AMAZING FIGHT THAT HAS

BEEN GOING ON.

WHEN I WENT TO YALE LAW

SCHOOL, THE FIRST CASE WE

STUDIED -- WE DIDN'T READ

THE CONSTITUTION, AS FAR

AS I CAN TELL -- WE NEVER

ONCE SAT DOWN AND READ THE

CONSTITUTION.

Wendy: WOW.

Pat: WE STARTED WITH

A CASE THAT SAID THE

SUPREME COURT HAS THE

POWER TO OVERTURN CASES AT

THE SUPREME COURT.

AND IT'S BE AMAZING HOW

PEOPLE HAVE CHANGED THE

CONSTITUTION.

BUT YOU GET A GUY LIKE

SCALIA, AND PEOPLE APPLAUD

HIM BECAUSE HE SAID, THIS

IS WHAT THE LAW SAID, AND

LET'S FIND OUT WHAT THE

FRAMERS INTENDED AND READ

THE LANGUAGE THAT WAS

WRITTEN.

THAT'S NICE.

THE OTHERS SAY, WELL, WE

CAN'T DO THAT.

IT'S A LIVING DOCUMENT.

THAT WAS HILLARY CLINTON.

IF SHE HAD GOTTEN IN, SHE

DEFINITELY WOULD HAVE PUT

IN JUDGES --

Wendy: IT TRULY IS

THE MOST IMPORTANT

DECISION A PRESIDENT CAN

MAKE.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

AND WE'VE HAD CASES THAT

HAVE DRIVEN US ALL NUTS.

THE SO-CALLED LEMON CASE.

SCALIA SAID YOU NEEDED TO

COME OUT AND DRIVE A STAKE

THROUGH HIS HEART.

BUT ALL OF THE LIBERTY

CASES HAVE BEEN ABSOLUTELY

OUTRAGEOUS.

AND THEY HAVE RESTRICTED,

RESTRICTED, RESTRICTED

FREEDOM OF RELIGION.

SO YOU GET A CHANCE FOR

SOME OF THESE THINGS TO BE

OVERTURNED.

AND WHAT THE PROABORTION

FOLKS ARE CONCERNED

ABOUT -- THERE IS A REAL

POSSIBILITY OF OVERTURNING

ROE VS. WADE.

WHICH WAS BASED ON AN

EXTRAORDINARILY POOR LEGAL

OPINION.

IT WAS CALLED BLACKMAN'S

ABORTION.

THEY MADE A CASE LAW THAT

DIDN'T EXIST.

IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE.

WHAT IS NEXT?

Wendy: UP NEXT, HE

HAS BEEN CALLED A SCIENCE

DENIER, AND TODAY THE

SENATE WILL VOTE ON

PUTTING HIM IN CHARGE OF

OUR NATION'S ENVIRONMENT.

YOU WAKE UP IN THE

MORNING AND HE HAS THIS

EXTRA BURST OF ENERGY

BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHAT HE

IS DOING IS IMPORTANT.

Wendy: CBN NEWS TAKES

A LOOK AT THE

CONTROVERSIAL RECORD OF

E.P.A. NOMINEE SCOTT

PRUITT RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

AND, MAN, IT IS EXCITING

TODAY.

ISN'T IT EXCITING TO LIVE

IN THESE DAYS?

WE'RE IN CHANGE LIKE WE

HAVEN'T SEEN.

INCREDIBLE, HISTORIC

THINGS ARE BEING DONE.

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE

THREATENED TO BOYCOTT A

SENATE COMMITTEE VOTE ON

ANOTHER ONE OF PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S CABINET NOMINEES,

HIS CHOICE TO HEAD UP THE

E.P.A.

OKLAHOMA ATTORNEY-GENERAL

SCOTT PRUITT -- HE HAS

FACED A STORM OF CRITICISM

OVER HIS VIEW OF CLIMATE

CHANGE.

BUT SUPPORTERS CALL HIM A

MAN OF FAITH WHO UP HOLDS

CONSTITUTIONAL LAW.

OUR MARK MARTIN BRINGS US

THIS STORY.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP SURPRISED A NUMBER

OF PEOPLE BY CHOOSING

SCOTT PRUITT TO RUN THE

DEPARTMENT THAT TAKES CARE

OF THE ENVIRONMENT.

CRITICS HAVE VOICED

DISAPPROVAL FOR HIS STANCE

ON CLIMATE CHANGE.

BUT PRUIT SAID HE DID NOT

THINK CLIMATE CHANGE WAS A

HOOK.

HUMAN ACTIVITY IN SOME

MANNER IMPACTS THAT

CHANGE.

THE MEASURE OF THAT IMPACT

AND WHAT DO DO ABOUT IT IS

SUBJECT TO CONTINUING

DEBATE AND DIALOGUE.

Reporter: HIS

NOMINATION HAS BEEN THE

FOCUS OF MUCH DEBATE.

A GROWING NUMBER OF

PRO-LIFE CATHOLIC AND

EVANGELICAL LEADERS FROM

ACROSS THE COUNTRY HAVE

ASKED THE PRESIDENT TO

WITHDRAW HIS NOMINATION IN

FAVOR OF SOMEONE WITH A

MORE EVEN-HANDED RECORD OF

PROTECTING HUMAN LIFE FROM

POLLUTION.

THE "NEW YORK TIMES"

LABELLED SCOTT PRUITT A

CLIMATE CHANGE DENIALIST.

TIM DOWNING DISAGREES.

I THINK THOSE TERMS ARE

MISGUIDED AND COULD BE

ILL-INFORMED.

BECAUSE IF ANYONE HAS

ACTUALLY HEARD THE

COMMENTS FROM SCOTT

PRUITT, HE'LL SAY

REGULATION SHOULD BE

REGULAR.

AND WHAT HE MEANS BY THAT

IS THAT THE GOVERNMENT

SHOULD NOT PICK WINNERS

AND USERS, AND REGULATIONS

SHOULD MAKE AN EVEN

PLAYING FIELD FOR MULTIPLE

SECTORS OF ANY INDUSTRY.

Reporter: DOWNING,

WHO SERVED UNDER SCOTT

PRUITT, DESCRIBES THE

WORTH ETHIC OF HIS FORMER

BOSS AS RELENTLESS.

HE WANT TS TO DO A GOOD

JOB FOR THE PEOPLE.

YOU SEE A MAN WHO WHEN HE

WAKES UP IN THE MORNING,

HE HAS AN EXTRA BURST OF

ENERGY BECAUSE HE KNOWS

WHAT HE IS DOING IS

IMPORTANT.

Reporter: BEFORE

BEING ELECTED OKLAHOMA

ATTORNEY-GENERAL, SCOTT

PRUITT WORKED IN THE STATE

SENATE FOR EIGHT YEARS.

HE WORKED TO DEFEND

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AND TO

PATH FAITH BASED

LEGISLATION.

NOW OPPONENTS ARE POINTING

OUT HIS HISTORY OF LEGAL

BATTLES AGAINST THE OF

COURSVERYAGENCY IS TAPPED TO LEAD.

BUT SUPPORTERS SAY HE'LL

BRING BALANCE TO THE AGENT

AGENCY.

I THINK SCOTT'S

POSITION IS STRONG.

HE IS THE KIND OF GUY WHO

WILL TAKE AND BALANCE

EVERYTHING AND LOOK HARD

AT IT.

THERE WILL BE THOSE WHO

WILL COME AFTER HIM

BECAUSE HE HAS TAKEN THESE

POSITIONS IN THE PAST, BUT

I DON'T THINK THAT IS

GOING TO DETER SCOTT AT

ALL.

HE WILL BE FAITHFUL TO THE

LAWS OF THE LAND.

Reporter: DR. ANTHONY

JORDAN IS ONE OF 50

EVANGELICAL LEADERS

SUPPORTING SCOTT PRUITT.

THEY SAY, WE BELIEVE HE

HAS BEEN MISREPRESENTED OF

DENYING SCIENCE, WHEN HE

IS CALLING TO REVIEW

CENTS.

SCOTT PRUITT HAS BEEN

ATTENDING CHURCH HERE IN

BROKEN ARROW, OKLAHOMA,

FOR NEARLY 30 YEARS.

HE IS A DEACON HERE, AND

HIS PASTOR SAYS HE HAS A

SOLID CHRISTIAN FAITH.

EVERY TIME WE COME TO

PRAY FOR HIM, WE'RE ALWAYS

AMAZED AT HIS BIBLICAL

INSIGHT INTO SOMETHING HE

IS FACING.

TO GET INSIGHT, YOU'VE GOT

TO SPEND TIME WITH GOD.

TO GET BIBLICAL INSIGHT,

YOU HAVE TO KNOW VERSE.

HE CAN ARTICULATE THOSE

THINGS ABOUT THE GOSPEL

AND SHARE HIS FAITH WITH

OTHER PEOPLE THAT COULD

LEAD PEOPLE TO CHRIST.

Reporter: ANOTHER

DEACON, BOB WAGONER,

SERVED WITH HIM WHEN HE

RAN FOR SENATE.

HE IS REALLY A MAN OF

PRAYER.

EVERY STEP HE TOOK, YOU

FELT LIKE GOD WAS

DIRECTING, WHICH I THINK

HE WAS.

Reporter: HE BELIEVES

SCOTT PRUITT IS A GIFTED

LISTENER WHO WILL BRING

UNITY IN A CLIMATE OF

DIVISION.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IF YOU DON'T

BELIEVE IN CLIMATE CHANGE,

YOU HAVE VIOLATED THE

TENANTS OF THE RELIGION

AND YOU NEED TO BE EX

COMMUNICATED -- IT IS

UNBELIEVABLE.

IF YOU'RE AT A UNIVERSITY

AND YOU IN ANY WAY

QUESTION THE ORTHODOXI OF

CLIMATE CHANGE -- WHAT

SCOTT PRUITT IS SAYING

THIS THING IS STILL

UNSETTLED.

WE NEED TO HAVE DEBATE.

WHO KNOWS WHETHER THE

ACTION OF THE SUN ITSELF

IS CAUSING CLIMATE CHANGE

OR THE MOVEMENT OF THE

PLANETS IS CAUSING CLIMATE

CHANGE.

WE DON'T KNOW ALL OF THOSE

THINGS.

WE HAD THE HOTTEST YEAR

PROBABLY ON RECORD THIS

LAST ONE, BUT IS IT REALLY

GETTING HOTTER ALL OF THE

TIME?

AND ARE THE POLAR ICE CAPS

MELTING?

THEY SAY SOME IN THE

ANTARCTIC ARE ACTUALLY

GROWING.

WHAT THE MAN SAYS IS, WE

OUGHT TO TALK ABOUT IT.

YOU NEED TO HAVE AN OPEN

MIND AND DO SCIENTIFIC

INQUIRY.

THAT IS THE WAY IT SHOULD

BE DONE.

NOT JUST ACCEPT IT BY

FAITH, LIKE THIS IS THE

DARK AGES, AND YOU GET

EXCOMMUNICATED IF YOU

DON'T GO ALONG WITH

EVERYTHING.

Wendy: THEY WERE

MEDICAL MISSIONARIES WHO

CAME DOWN WITH THE DISEASE

THEY WERE TRYING TO FIGHT.

FRANKLIN GRAHAM TELLS US

THEIR STORIES.

HE IS HERE, LATER ON

TODAY'S SHOW.

Wendy: WELL, WHEN WE

FIRST MET BRIAN, HE WAS

INJURED, HOMELESS, AND

TRYING TO SUPPORT HIS TWO

LITTLE GIRLS.

BUT THIS SINGLE DAD'S LIFE

HAS TURNED AROUND

COMPLETELY BECAUSE OF HELP

FROM PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

Reporter: BRIAN AND

HIS TWO DAUGHTERS, PEARL

AND DAISY, HAVE

EXPERIENCED HARD TIMES.

AND WE KEEP UP WITH

THAT BECAUSE THEIR MOTHER

LEFT US WHEN THEY WERE

THREE AND FIVE.

Reporter: SOON AFTER,

BRIAN WAS INJURED ON THE

JOB AND COULD NO LONGER

WORK.

HE COULDN'T MAKE HIS RENT

PAYMENT, AND HIS YOUNG

FAMILY WAS EVICTED FROM

THEIR APARTMENT.

THE CONSENSUS WAS, HEY,

BRIAN, YOU CAN'T DO THIS.

I SAID, I'M NOT GOING TO

LEAVE MY GIRLS BECAUSE

NOBODY GETS LEFT BEHIND.

DADDY IS NOT GOING

ANYWHERE, AM I?

UH-UH.

Reporter: WHILE HIS

DAUGHTERS STAYED WITH

RELATIVES, BRIAN SLEPT

BEHIND GAS STATIONS AND

RODE HIS BIKE AROUND TOWN

LOOKING FOR WORK.

THERE WERE WEEKS WHEN I

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WE WERE

GOING TO DO.

I WAS GETTING PRETTY

DESPERATE.

Reporter: AFTER

MONTHS OF SEARCHING, BRIAN

LANDED A JOB, BUT HE AND

THE GIRLS STILL NEEDED A

PLACE TO LIVE.

WE GOT A CALL FROM

"RIVER REFUGE."

IT WAS A BIG LOAD OFF MY

SHOULDERS.

MANY OF THESE FAMILIES,

THEY DON'T HAVE ANYBODY.

Reporter: STEPHANIE

KEK, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF

"RIVER REFUGE," MET BRIAN

AND HIS DAUGHTERS TO LOOK

FOR HOUSING.

THEY PROVIDED BRIAN

TRADITIONAL HOUSING TO

KEEP HIS FAMILY TOGETHER.

PEARL AND DAISY ALSO GOT

NEW SCHOOL CLOTHES AND

SUPPLIES.

I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT WHERE WE'RE GOING TO

STAY, AND THE REST JUST

FALLS IN PLACE.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT

THE HOUSE WOULD PROBABLY

BE THAT MOST OF THE STUFF

WE DIDN'T HAVE TO BUY.

Reporter: CBN HAS

COME ON BOARD WITH "RIVER

OF REFUGE" AND PROVIDED

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO

CONTINUE TO HELP FAMILIES

LIKE BRIAN'S.

CBN HAS BEEN WONDERFUL.

GORDON HAS BEEN A GREAT

SUPPORT.

WE'RE TRYING SO HARD TO

CREATE THIS SAFE HAVEN FOR

THE FAMILIES, TRULY A

REFUGE FOR THEM TO BE

SAFE, FOR THEM TO FEEL

LOVED.

BECAUSE WE'RE GIVEN

THIS LITTLE LEEWAY, MY

ATTITUDE HAS GOTTEN EVEN

BETTER AT WORK.

I JUST GOT A PROMOTION.

I'M GETTING A RAISE.

I TOLD THE GIRLS, OUR

BLESSINGS ARE STARTING TO

COME IN.

Wendy: WOW, THE

BLESSINGS ARE STARTING TO

COME IN.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP

BRIAN AND PEOPLE LIKE

BRIAN AND HIS TWO PRECIOUS

LITTLE GIRLS, IT IS SO

EASY TO DO THAT.

YOU CAN MAKE A HUGE

DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

MANY LIVES, AND WE PUT IT

LAW OF EXPECTATION."

YOUR LIFE.

SO GO TO YOUR PHONES AND

> STILL AHEAD, HIS

FAMILY SURVIVED THE

HORRORS OF IRAN, BUT HE

WASN'T EXPECTED TO SURVIVE

THE HOSPITAL STAY.

THEY SAID THERE IS NO

HOPE.

Wendy: BUT THERE IS

ONE THING THOSE DOCTORS

DIDN'T COUNT ON.

SEE WHAT THEY'RE CALLING

MIRACULOUS, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

SNOOZCBNNEWSBREAK.

SEVEN MEN ARE IN PRISON

FOR BREAKING INTO

CHURCHES.

THE MEN, ALL IN THEIR

20s, BURGLIZED FIVE

CHURCH BUILDINGS AND

ROBBED THE THEM BETWEEN 2013

AND 2015, TWO WERE FROM

TUNISIA AND ONE IS FROM

MOROCCO.

LEGENDARY BUSINESSMAN

WARREN BUFFET IS A

BELIEVING IN THE

POST-ELECTION RALLY ON

WALL STREET.

HE SAID HIS COMPANY HAS

BOUGHT 12 BILLION WORTH OF

STOCK SINCE DONALD TRUMP

WON THE ELECTION, BUT HE

DIDN'T INDICATE WHICH

STOCKS.

INVESTORS HAVE PUT THE

MAJOR STOCK MARKET INDICES

TO MAJOR HIGHS, AND

ANALYSTS EXPECT THE STOCK

MARKET TO KEEP MOVING

HIGHER IN THE YEARS AHEAD.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

I'M HERE WITH THE LOVELY

WENDY GRIFFITH.

Wendy: WE ARE HAVING

A FABULOUS TIME.

WE HAVE FRANKLIN GRAHAM IN

THE HOUSE.

Pat: WELL, GILBERT

HAS MORE PAGES IN HIS

MEDICAL RECORDS THAN MOST

NOVELS.

IN THERE, THE DOCTORS

WROTE, QUOTE, "NO

GUARANTIES OF A GOOD

OUTCOME."

FRANKLY, GILBERT NEEDED A

SERIES OF MIRACLES.

THE FIRST WAS JUST MAKING

IT TO THE HOSPITAL ALIVE.

I WAITED AND I WAITED.

SEVERAL HOURS WENT BY.

FIRST I TEXTED HIM AND

THEN I STARTED CALLING

HIM.

NO ANSWERS.

THIS IS VERY UNUSUAL FOR

GILBERT.

Reporter: HE FINALLY

DID GET A CALL THAT

EVENING IN 2014.

HER HUSBAND, GILBERT, HAD

BEEN IN A MOTORCYCLE

ACCIDENT.

AND WAS BEING FLOWN TO

HUNTINGTON HOSPITAL, IN

PASADENA, CALIFORNIA.

ANNI WAS GIVE FEW DETAILS,

SO SHE PRAYED IT WASN'T

SERIOUS.

AT THE HOSPITAL, THE HEAD

DOCTOR TOLD HER OTHERWISE.

I THOUGHT HE WOULD SAY,

GO AHEAD IN AND VISIT HIM.

BUT HE SAID, YOU NEED TO

GO IN AND SAY GOOD-BYE.

I SAID, LORD, I

SURRENDER.

YOU NEED TO TAKE OVER.

Reporter: GILBERT HAD

VEERED OFF THE ROAD AND

CRASHED HEAD-FIRST INTO A

MOUNTAINSIDE.

ALONG WITH MULTIPLE BROKEN

BONES, HE HAD MASSIVE

BRAIN TRAUMA AND WASN'T

EXPECTED TO LIVE.

BUT FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO

GATHERED TO PRAY BELIEVED

DIFFERENTLY.

AND I PRAY, FATHER GOD,

THAT THE PHYSICIANS...

I WAS JUST PRAYING IN

MY HEART THAT, LORD, YOU

SEE EVERYTHING.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT'S AHEAD,

SO, HONESTLY, IF I DIDN'T

HAVE MY FAITH, IT WOULD BE

IMPOSSIBLE.

Reporter: OVER THE

COURSE OF THE NIGHT, THE

PROGNOSIS CHANGED.

THEY SAID, WELL, IT

LOOKS LIKE HE IS

SURVIVING, BUT HE WILL BE

PARALYZED FROM THE NECK

DOWN.

Reporter: TWO DAYS

LATER, GILBERT WOKE UP,

AND TESTS CONFIRMED HE

WASN'T PARALYZED, BUT IT

WASN'T OVER.

HE HAD TO OVERCOME A BOUT

WITH MEMORY LOSS AND STILL

FACED A MULTITUDE OF

SURGERIES AND MONTHS OF

PHYSICAL THERAPY.

EVEN THEN, DOCTORS

EXPECTED HE COULD BE

PERMANENTLY DISABLED.

WE KEPT PUSHING THROUGH

AND PRAYING.

AND IT WAS CONSTANT PRAY,

TAKE A STEP FORWARD, PRAY,

TAKE A STEP FORWARD.

Reporter: GILBERT WAS

FULLY AWARE OF WHAT WAS AT

STAKE, BUT HE STILL

TRUSTED GOD.

I KNEW THAT GOD IS

GOING TO SHOW UP.

GOD IS GOING TO CHANGE

THINGS.

GOD IS THERE WITH ME.

Reporter: THAT'S

BECAUSE THIS WASN'T THE

FIRST TIME GOD CARRIED HIS

FAMILY THROUGH DIFFICULT

TRIALS.

WHILE LIVING IN IRAN, THEY

WERE PERSECUTED FOR THEIR

FAITH.

I WAS 17 YEARS OLD WHEN

MY DAD WAS KILLED AND WAS

MARTYRED.

WAS IT EASY?

NO.

WAS HIS GRACE ENOUGH?

YES, HIS GRACE WAS ENOUGH

EVEN THEN.

Reporter: AFTER YEARS

OF SURGERIES AND PHYSICAL

THERAPY, ONLY ONE THING

THAT BEEHADN'T BEEN RESTORED.

HIS FINGERS WERE LOCKED.

HE FELT HE WANTED CONTINUE

WORSHIPPING GOD THROUGH

HIS TALENT AS PIANIST.

THEY SAID, GILBERT,

THERE IS NO HOPE.

I COULDN'T MOVE MY

FINGERS, AND I COULDN'T

EVEN SHAKE HANDS.

Reporter: THE

PHYSICIAN IN CHARGE OF

GILBERT'S PHYSICAL

THERAPY, DR. RAFAEL BALI.

HE COULD NOT USE HIS

HANDS TO PLAY, AND THAT

WAS HIS PROFESSION, AS YOU

KNOW.

SO THAT WAS A LIMITATION

WE THOUGHT WOULD BE

DEVASTATING FOR HIM

BECAUSE THAT WAS THE END

OF HIS CAREER, ALMOST.

Reporter: STILL,

GILBERT PRESSED ON AND

MANAGED TO GET ONE FINGER

TO WORK.

IT WAS EXTREMELY HARD,

BUT, AGAIN, I KNEW THAT

GOD IS GOOD.

I CAN'T SEE GOD'S GOODNESS

IN THIS AREA RIGHT NOW,

BUT GOD IS GOOD.

Reporter: WHILE

GILBERT CAME TO TERMS WITH

HIS DISABILITY, HIS AND

HIS FAMILY CONTINUED TO

FAST AND PRAY FOR COMPLETE

HEALING.

ALMOST SEVEN MONTHS

AFTER THE SURGERY, I WENT

TO FRIENDS TO SHARE THE

GOSPEL AND SHARE MY

TESTIMONY, ACTUALLY.

THIS COUPLE CAME UP TO ME

AND THEY SAID, WE ARE LED

BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO PRAY

FOR YOUR HEALING.

THAT COUPLE, THEY PRAYED

OVER MY HANDS, MY FINGERS.

I RECEIVED THAT WORD BY

FAITH, EVEN THOUGH AGAIN I

HAD MY DOUBTS, BUT PRAISE

GOD THAT HE IS GRACIOUS

EVEN BEYOND AND ABOVE OUR

FAITH AND UNDERSTANDING.

THE NEXT MORNING I WOKE

UP, AND WHEN I WOKE UP, MY

FINGERS OPENED UP.

IT WAS -- I COULDN'T EVEN

BELIEVE THAT THIS WAS

HAPPENING.

AND WHEN I CAME TO

LOS ANGELES, WHERE I LIVE,

I WENT TO HAVE THE DOCTOR

DO A NERVE TEST, AND HE

SAID, WOW, YOUR NERVES ARE

REGENERATING.

THAT WAS A TOTAL

SURPRISE.

IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE WHEN

WE FIRST SAW IT.

NOTHING CAN ASSURE ME

THAT IT WAS ANYTHING OTHER

THAN A MIRACLE.

HIS FAITH, HIS

DETERMINATION PLAYED A

MAJOR ROLE IN HIS OVERALL

RECOVERY.

EXCEPTION IS PROBABLY

THE RIGHT WORD.

IT IS AMAZING, ALSO.

AND I THINK WE CAN ALSO

USE THE WORD MIRACULOUS

FOR THIS KIND OF RECOVERY.

Reporter: GILBERT IS

STILL USING HIS GIFT

THROUGH HIS FAMILY

MINISTRY, HELPING PEOPLE

IN THE FARSI-SPEAKING

WORLD WORSHIP GOD.

I KNEW MY PURPOSE VERY

CLEAR.

MY PURPOSE IN LIFE IS TO

KNOW HIM AND MAKE HIM

KNOWN.

AND THROUGH THIS ACCIDENT,

I GOT TO KNOW HIM MUCH

MORE.

PRAISE THE LORD.

Pat: WHAT A WONDERFUL

THING.

GOD IS SO GOOD.

THE WORD -- THERE IS

SOMETHING ABOUT THE WORD.

GOD SPOKE THE WORD, AND

THE WORLD CAME INTO BEING.

HE SPOKE AND OUT CAME

LIFE.

HE SPOKE AND THE PLANETS

APPEARED.

WELL, FOR MONTHS, BUDDY OF

FLORIDA HAD SEVERE PAIN

AND RINGING IN HIS LEFT

EAR.

HE SAID IT WAS LIKE A BAD

TOOTHACHE ALL OF THE TIME.

ONE DAY HE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND WENDY

SAID, "YOU HAVE PAIN AND

RINGING IN YOUR RIGHT EAR,

AND GOD IS TOUCHING IT."

AS SOON AS BUDDY HEARD THE

WORD, THE PAIN

DISAPPEARED.

ISN'T THAT GREAT?

THE WORD IS ACTIVATED BY

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

YOU SPEAK IT OUT, AND

BANG.

Wendy: GOD SENDS HIS

WORD AND YOU ARE HEALED.

THIS WOMAN DEVELOPED

SERIOUS BACK PAIN AND FOR

WEEKS SHE WOULDN'T EVEN

TURN HER HEAD.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND SHE

HEARD YOU, PAT, GIVE A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

"THERE IS A WOMAN WITH A

SHARP PAIN IN THE BACK OF

YOUR NECK, AND PUT YOUR

HAND BACK THERE."

SHE HEARD SOMETHING POP

AND SHE REGAINED FULL

MOBILITY AND HAS BEEN

PAIN-FREE EVER SINCE.

Pat: I DIDN'T KNOW

AMAJEAN, BUT GOD KNOWS.

HE KNOWS WHO YOU ARE, HE

KNOWS HOW OLD YOU ARE, HE

KNOWS YOUR SINS, HE KNOWS

YOUR GOOD POINTS -- HE

KNOWS EVERYTHING.

AND IN SPITE OF ALL OF

THAT, HE LOVES YOU.

AND WHAT WE WANT TO DO ON

THIS PROGRAM IS PRAY FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW, AND WE'RE

GOING TO BELIEVE GOD.

SO WOULD YOU PLEASE PRAY

WITH US.

ALL WE'RE ASKING YOU TO DO

IS JUST RECEIVE WHAT GOD

IS GOING TO DO.

WE'RE GOING TO JOIN HANDS

AND TOGETHER WE'RE GOING

BELIEVE GOD.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST, AND WE

BELIEVE GOD IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

WITH YOU, NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

LORD, THERE IS A WOMAN WHO

HAS BREAST CANCER, AND GOD

RIGHT NOW IS HEALING YOU.

PUT YOUR HAND OVER THAT

BREAST.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

TOUCH!

WENDY?

Wendy: THANK YOU,

LORD.

FATHER, YOU'RE SENDING

YOUR WORD AND YOU'RE

HEALING SOMEONE WHO HAS

THEIR HAND ON THEIR HIP.

AND IT IS A VERY PAINFUL

HIP.

AND YOU ARE HEALING THEIR

HIP.

AND I THINK YOU'RE

TOUCHING MANY PEOPLE WITH

HIP PROBLEMS RIGHT NOW.

YOU'RE CAUSING PERFECT

ALIGNMENT.

WE SPEAK PERFECT ALIGNMENT

INTO YOUR BODY IN JESUS'

NAME.

Pat: THE DIZZINESS IS

BAD.

IT'S VERTIGO, AND YOU'VE

BEEN CRYING TO GOD, PLEASE

HELP ME.

AND GOD HAS HEARD YOUR

PRAYER.

YOUR INNER EAR IS BEING

HEALED IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

TOUCH!

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH A VERY

PAINFUL RIGHT EYE, AND GOD

IS TOUCHING YOU.

AND SOME PEOPLE HAVE HAD

PROBLEMS FOR MONTHS, VERY

PAINFUL, AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU.

JUST PUT YOUR HANDS ON

YOUR FEET AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU.

Pat: MAY THE

ANOINTING OF THE THE LORD

COME INTO YOUR LIVES.

LORD, TOUCH THESE PEOPLE'S

FAMILIES.

THEY'VE CRIED OUT TO YOU,

AND NOW HEAR THEIR PRAYER

AND PERFORM A MIRACLE IN

THEIR BEHALF THAT THEY

MIGHT GLORIFY YOU.

WE GLORIFY THE NAME OF THE

LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

PRAISE GOD.

COMING UP, IT IS ONE OF

THE WORLD'S MOST DEADLIEST

VIRUSES, AND FOR FRANKLIN

GRAHAM, IT HIT HOME.

THE C.E.O. OF SAMARITAN'S

PURSE TELLS US ABOUT THOSE

WHO PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE

LINE TO STOP AN OUTBREAK.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELL, IT WAS

CALLED MARBURG.

IT WAS NAMED AFTER A RIVER

IN ZAIRE, THE EBOLA RIVER.

AND THEY CALL IT

HEMORRHAGING FEVER.

AN EPIDEMIC OF EBOLA SWEPT

THROUGH WEST AFRICA.

FRANK GRAHAM'S

"SAMARITAN'S PURSE" WAS IN

THE CENTER OF THAT STORM.

EBOLA IS THE WORLD MOST

DANGEROUS VIRUS.

AS THE EPIDEMIC

ESCALATED, WE WERE

DESPERATELY TRYING TO STAY

ONE STEP AHEAD.

MY PHONE RANG AND THEY

SAID ONE OF OUR DOCTORS

HAS EBOLA.

NO MATTER WHAT IT TOOK,

LET'S GET THEM OUT.

JESUS CHRIST DIDN'T

RUN.

WE RUN TO THE FIRE; WE

DON'T RUN AWAY FROM IT.

Pat: JOINING US NOW

FOR THE REST OF THAT

STORY -- FRANKLIN, YOUR

FOLKS WERE IN LIBERIA

WORKING, AND DID YOU HAVE

ANY IDEA WHAT WAS GOING TO

HAPPEN?

NO, SIR.

PAT, WE GOT THERE IN 2003,

RIGHT AFTER THE CIVIL WAR

BEGAN IN LIBERIA.

AND EBOLA CAME INTO

LIBERIA AND SIERRA LEONE.

AND BY 2014 IT HAD COME.

AND THERE WAS NOBODY

THERE, PAT, TO FIGHT IT.

SO WE WERE ASKED BY THE

WORLD HEALTH, BY "DOCTORS

WITHOUT BORDERS", IF WE

WOULD BE WILLING TO TAKE

ON EBOLA IN LIBERIA.

AND WHEN MY STAFF ASKED ME

ABOUT THAT, I HAD A KNOT

IN MY STOMACH, PAT.

I THOUGHT, THIS IS NOT

SOMETHING WE'RE TRAINED

FOR.

THIS IS THE WORLD'S MOST

DEADLY VIRUS.

Pat: EXACTLY.

BUT NOBODY WAS DOING

IT.

AND SO I SAID, OKAY, WE'LL

DO IT.

Pat: ALMOST 100%

FATALITY, BY THE WAY?

IT IS.

AND AT THAT TIME.

THERE WAS SO MUCH THE

WORLD DID NOT KNOW ABOUT

EBOLA.

BUT WE PUT TOGETHER AN

EBOLA TREATMENT UNIT.

AND WE DID THIS IN

CONJUNCTION WITH SUDAN

INTERIOR MISSION, AND THEY

HAD A HOSPITAL, WHERE WE

HAD DR. BRANTLY WHO WAS

WORKING THERE.

SO DR. BRANTLY AGREED TO

RUN THE EBOLA TREATMENT

UNIT.

AND BY THE MIDDLE OF JULY,

ON THE 24-RD, 23rd, I GOT A

CALL, AND THEY SAID THAT

DR. BRANTLY HAD EBOLA.

AND I SAY, IT WAS JUST

LIKE A KNIFE WAS STABBED

INTO ME BECAUSE I KNEW

THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD

DO, PAT, TO SAVE HIS LIFE,

THAT HE WOULD DIE IN

LIBERIA.

AND THERE WAS NOTHING I

COULD DO TO TRY TO GET HIM

HOME.

WE TRIED.

WE HAD AN INSURANCE

POLICY.

WE SAID WE'LL GO ANYWHERE

IN THE WORLD.

AND WE CALLED THEM UP, AND

THEY SAID, SURE, WHERE IS

HE?

LIBERIA.

AND THEY SAID, NO, WE'RE

NOT GOING TO GO.

AND I SAID, WE HAVE A

POLICY -- AND THEY SAID,

SUE US.

THEY WERE VERY ARROGANT.

BUT GOD BEGAN TO WORK.

THIS FILM SHOWS A SERIES

OF MIRACLES THAT GOD

PERFORMED TO SAVE THE LIFE

OF DR. BRANTLY AND TO SAVE

NANCNANCY WRITEBOL.

AND THEY CAME BACK TO THE

UNITED STATES AND THEY

SURVIVED.

AND DR. BRAN BRANTLY BECAME THE

SPOKESPERSON FOR EBOLA AND

WAS AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

AND ALL OF THESE VARIOUS

AGENCIES LOOKED TO

DR. BRANTLY.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, GOD

GOT THE GLORY.

THIS FILM COMES OUT ON

MARCH 30th.

Pat: IT IS, LIKE, ONE

DAY.

IT IS ONE DAY, BUT IT

IS "FACING DARKNESS."

YOU CAN GO TO THE WEBSITE

FACINfacingdarknessmovie.com.

AND THIS IS AN ARMY OF

YOUNG PEOPLE WHO FOUGHT

EBOLA.

REMEMBER NATE ZANE AND

WHAT HE DID FOR OUR

GENERATION?

Pat: EXACTLY.

I HOPE THIS FILM WILL

INSPIRE A GROUP OF

MISSIONARIES WHO WILL SAY,

I'LL GO.

Pat: WHEN YOU FLEW

INTO ATLANTA, WHAT DID YOU

DO, FLY A PRIVATE PLANE?

AFTER FOUR DAYS, DOOR

AFTER DOOR WAS BEING SHUT.

WE TALKED TO A MAN IN THE

STATE DEPARTMENT.

AND HE SAID, JUST KIND OF

CASUALLY, WELL, THE UNITED

STATES GOVERNMENT DOES

HAVE ONE ASSET.

OKAY, WHAT DOES THAT

MEAN?

WE HAVE A PLAI PLANE THAT

CAN FLY THIS KIND OF

INFECTED PERSON SAFELY.

AND I SAID, WHO DO WE NEED

TO TALK TO?

AND HE SAID, YOU'RE

TALKING TO HIM.

AND I SAID, WHO DO WE NEED

TO SPEAK TO TO GIVE US

PERMISSION?

AND I SAID I MAKE THAT

DECISION.

AND HE SAID, YOU'LL HAVE

TO REIMBURSE THE

GOVERNMENT.

AND THEY WENT TO LIBERIA

AND BROUGHT HIM BACK.

JUST THAT STORY IN ITSELF

IS A TESTIMONY.

BECAUSE THE PLANE HAD A

PRESSURIZATION PROBLEM

HALF WAY ACROSS THE

ATLANTIC AND HAD TO COME

BACK.

AND DURING THAT TIME,

DR. BRANTLY BEGAN TO DIE.

AND WE HAD AN EXPERIMENTAL

SERUM THAT HAD BEEN SENT

TO AFRICA TO HELP

DR. KAHN, WHO WAS A DOCTOR

IN SIERRA LEONE, THE

WORLD'S FOREMOST EXPERT ON

EBOLA.

HE HAD EBOLA, AND THE

DOCTORS THERE WOULD NOT

GIVE IT TO HIM BECAUSE

THEIR LAWYERS SAID IT IS

EXPERIMENTAL, AND IT COULD

KILL HIM.

WELL, HE DIED.

AND THAT ZMAT KIM TO US.

CAME TO US.

AND WE GAVE PART OF THAT

TO DR. BRANTLY AND NAN NANCY

WHITAND THEY SURVIVED.

I WANT YOUNG PEOPLE TO

KNOW THAT GOD CAN USE

THEM, AND GOD HAS A PLAN

FOR THEIR LIFE.

Pat: WERE THEY

GRIPPED BY FEAR?

YOU SAID JESUS DIDN'T

RETREAT.

HE WENT FORWARD.

BUT THIS IS SCARY STUFF.

IT IS VERY SCARY.

I WAS THERE JUST A FEW

MONTHS AGO, PAT, AND TO GO

BY THE GRAVES OF THESE

PEOPLE, KNOWING WHAT

HAPPENED IN THEIR LIFE --

BUT OUR GOVERNMENT WAS NOT

PREPARED, PAT.

I ASKED THE C.D.C. -- I

SAID, I'VE GOT 26 PEOPLE

I'M BRINGING BACK FROM

LIBERIA THAT MIGHT HAVE

BEEN EXPOSED TO EBOLA.

WHAT DO I DO?

AND THEY SAID --

DR. FRIEDMAN SAID, SEND

THEM HOME, HAVE THEM TAKE

THEIR TEMPERATURE TWICE A

DAY.

IF THEY GET A SPIKE IN

THEIR TEMPERATURE, HAVE

THEM GO TO THEIR LOCAL

HEALTH DEBATE.

Pat: THAT'S

RIDICULOUS.

IF THEY WENT TO THE THEIR

LOCAL HEALTH DEPUT DEPARTMENT

AND SAID WE THINK WE

HAVEIBLHAVEEBOLA, THEY WOULD HAVE

SENT THEM OUT OF DOORS.

WE SET UP OUR OWN AREAS.

IF SOMEONE GOT A

TEMPERATURE SPIKE, THEY

WOULD GO STRAIGHT TO THE

UNIVERSITY AND SAY, WE

THINK WE HAVE EBOLA.

Pat: DOES THAT ZMAT

WORK?

HAVE THEY EXPANDED THE

COVERAGE OF IT?

IT DID WORK FOR BRANTLY

AND NANCY.

WHEN DR. BRANTLY -- WHEN

THEY GAVE IT TO HIM, HE

WAS DYING.

HE TOLD EVERYBODY THAT DAY

HE WOULDN'T MAKE IT

THROUGH THE NIGHT.

AND PATIENTS GENERALLY

KNOW THESE THINGS.

HE WAS A DOCTOR.

HE KNEW.

HE SAID, I HAVE NO MORE

RESERVES.

I CAN'T FIGHT THIS ANY

LONGER.

HE HADN'T BEEN OUT OF BED

IN THREE DAYS.

IT TAKES FOR ABOUT NINE

HOURS FOR THE WHOLE BAG TO

GO IN.

IT GOES IN VERY SLOW.

AS SOON AS THEY PUT THAT

INTO HIM, HE WENT INTO

CONVULSIONS AND BEGAN

VIOLENTLY SHAKING IN BED.

ONE OF OUR DOCTORS WAS

ADMINISTRATEING THIS, AND

GETS ON THE PHONE AND

CALLS THE MANUFACTURER,

THE SCIENTIST.

AND THEY SAID, NO -- WE'VE

SEEN THIS IN PRIMATES.

IT HAD NEVER BEEN PUT IN

HUMANS.

AND HE SAID IT WAS THE

ANTIBODIES FIGHTING THE

VIRUS.

THEY SAID, DON'T STOP.

JUST HOLD ON.

HE CONTINUED THIS VIOLENT

TAKING FOR ABOUT 35 TO 40

MINUTES, AND THEN THE

CONVULSIONS SUBSIDED.

HE GOT OUT OF BED AND WENT

TO THE BATHROOM.

HADN'T BEEN OUT OF BED IN

THREE DAYS.

PAT, IT WAS THAT QUICK.

IT'S LIKE GOD SHOWED UP.

AND IT WAS THAT FAST.

AND IT STABILIZED HIM TO

WHERE THE PLANE THAT HAD

PRESSURIZATION PROBLEMS --

IF IT HAD COME ON TIME, HE

WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THAT

PLANE AND HE WOULD HAVE

DIED.

BUT THAT PRESSURIZATION

PROBLEM STOPPED THE PLANE

LONG ENOUGH FOR HIM TO GET

THE ZMAT.

IT IS MARCH 30th, AND

YOU CAN GO TO

facingdarknessmovie.com

AND FIND OUT WHERE IT IS

GOING TO BE AND GET YOUR

TICKETS RIGHT THERE.

Pat: THAT'S GREAT.

I REMEMBER I WAS WORKING

IN ZAIRE WHEN THE FIRST

EBOLA OUTBREAK CAME, AND

WE WERE SENDING PEOPLE UP

THERE.

BUT THE UNITED NATIONS

DIDN'T LOOK AFTER THE

DOCTORS.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY

HAZMAT SUITS -- IT WAS

TERRIBLE.

THE WORLD WAS NOT

PREPARED.

PAT, OUR WHOLE HEALTH CARE

SYSTEM CHANGED, THE WAY WE

LOOK AT THIS THROUGHOUT

THE UNITED STATES.

IF THERE WAS AN OUTBREAK

OF EBOLA, OR SOMETHING

LIKE THAT IN THIS COUNTRY,

THE UNITED STATES IS MUCH

MORE PREPARED TODAY

BECAUSE OF DR. BRANTLEY.

THEY ARE PREPARED.

THAT'S A GOOD THING THAT

CAME OUT OF THIS.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

FRANKLIN, I'M SO THRILLED.

THE MOVIE IS CALLED

"FACING DARKNESS."

IT'S AT THE END OF THIS

MONTH.

FRANKLIN, IT IS SO GOOD TO

SEE YOU.

BY THE WAY, THE RAIN IN

SPAIN, IT CAME ON THE

INAUGURATION, AND YOU

CALLED IT A BLESSING OF

GOD.

IT IS FUNNY, PAT,

SITTING THERE, AS SOON AS

PRESIDENT TRUMP WENT TO

TAKE THE SWEARING IN, IT

BEGAN TO SPRINKLE.

WHEN HE SPOKE, IT WAS

RAINING.

AND I THOUGHT, THEY'RE

GOING TO SAY IT RAINED ON

HIS PARADE.

I THOUGHT, I'M GOING TO

SAY SOMETHING.

BECAUSE IN THE BIBLE, RAIN

IS A SIGN OF BLESSING.

AND AS SOON AS HE SAT

DOWN, THE RAIN STOPPED.

SO WHEN I GOT UP TO PRAY,

IT WASN'T RAINING.

IT WAS JUST -- SO I

THOUGHT, WELL, IT IS A

SIGN FROM GOD MAYBE HE IS

GOING TO BLESS THIS MAN

AND MAYBE BLESS OUR

NATION.

AND I HOPE THAT'S WHAT IT

IS.

Pat: IT IS, BROTHER.

SO GOOD TO SEE YOU.

FRANKLIN GRAHAM, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

DON'T MISS THAT MOVIE

MARCH 30th.

WENDY?

Wendy: LET IT RAIN,

PAT.

THAT WAS MY FAVORITE PART

OF THE INAUGURATION

CEREMONY.

THAT WAS SO COOL.

TODAY THE CALENDAR

SWITCHES TO FEBRUARY.

SHOPPING CENTERS AROUND

THE COUNTRY BREAKING OUT

THE RED DECORE, BUT FOR

SOME IT IS A REMINDER THEY

HAVEN'T FOUND THAT SPECIAL

SOMEONE.

SO WE'RE LAUNCHING A

28-DAY PRAYER CAMPAIGN FOR

THOSE SINGLES.

TAKE A LOOK.

HEY, SINGLES, IT IS DAY

ONE OF OUR 28 DAYS OF

PRAYER.

LET'S KICK IT OFF BY

PRAYING FOR HOPE.

FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF

THINGS HOPED FOR.

SO YOU HAVE TO HAVE HOPE

TO EVEN HAVE FAITH.

THE BIBLE SAYS HOPE

DEFERRED MAKES THE HEART

SICK.

BUT WHEN THE DESIRE COMES,

IT IS THE TREE OF LIFE.

LET'S AGREE RIGHT NOW THAT

GOD IS GOING TO GIVE US

HOPE, EVEN JOY, IN THE

WAITING.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, I DECLARE AND DECREE

IT IS TIME TO GET OUR

HOPES UP.

THE WAITING HAS NOT BEEN

IN VAIN.

YOU ARE GETTING READY TO

BRING MATES TO MANY OF

YOUR CHILDREN WHO HAVE

BEEN WAITING A LONG TIME.

SOME FOR YEARS, EVEN

DECADES.

YOU HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN US.

LORD, WE ASK FOR SUDDENLY,

THAT YOU WOULD SUDDENLY

BRING THE RIGHT PERSON

INTO OUR LIVES, AND THAT

YOU WOULD BRING MANY

KINGDOM MARRIAGES INTO

BEING THIS YEAR.

I RELEASE A NEW WAVE OF

HOPE TO EVERYONE HEARING

AND WATCHING THIS PRAYER

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

WE'RE GOING TO GET OUR

HOPES UP.

GET A COPY OF MY BOOK "YOU

ARE A PRIZE TO BE WON:

DON'T SETTLE FOR LESS."

PAT, YOU'VE GOT THE

ANOINTING.

HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU

BEEN MARRIED?

Pat: 62 YEARS.

IT GETS SWEETER ALL OF THE

TIME.

I WANT EVERYBODY TO KNOW

THAT.

IT DOESN'T DIMINISH.

THE LOVE GROWS.

Wendy: SO GOOD THINGS

CAN HAPPEN LATE IN THE

GAME.

Pat: IT HAPPENS FOR

ME LATE IN THE GAME ALL OF

THE TIME.

Wendy: LET'S DO SOME

E-MAIL.

CAROLINE WRITES IN, "I

MARRIED A MAN WHO I

THOUGHT WAS A CHRISTIAN,

EVEN THOUGH I KNEW HE

CHEATED ON ME A YEAR

BEFORE I MARRIED HIM.

HE IS ADDICTED TO PORN,

AND I JUST RECENTLY FOUND

OUT HE WAS TALKING TO

ANOTHER WOMAN.

THEY BOTH SAID THEY DID

NOT HAVE SEX, BUT I AM

CRUSHED.

IS THIS ADULTERY?

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

HE SAYS HE WASN'T MADE FOR

MARRIAGE?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

THERE ARE SOME RULES ABOUT

DIVORCE THAT I DON'T THINK

YOU'RE SPOUSE HAS CROSSED

THE LINE ON.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, HE'S

GOING TO CHEAT ON YOU.

HE'S GOING TO BE

UNFAITHFUL.

YOUR LIFE IS NEVER GOING

TO BE STABLE.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE TO ME,

AT LEAST YOU COULD DO IS

GET A DECREE OF

SEPARATION.

IT MAY BE YOUR MARRIAGE

HASN'T GONE THAT FAR AND

YOU CAN WORK THINGS OUT.

GET A LEGAL DOCUMENT TO

SET UP YOUR RITE RIGHTS RIGHT

NOW AND LIVE APART.

YOU DON'T WANT TO

NECESSARILY GET DIVORCED,

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, YOU

DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN THAT

WAY.

YOUR HUSBAND SAID HE

DIDN'T WANT TO BE MARRIED,

SO DO IT.

Wendy: STU SAYS, "I I

WAS NEVER CIRCUMCISED, AND

I FEEL LIKE MY WIFE WOULD

LOVE ME MORE IF I HAD THE

PROCEDURE DONE.

MY WIFE IS ENCOURAGING ME

TO DO IT.

ON A SPIRITUAL BASIS, IS

THIS THE RIGHT THING TO

DO?"

Pat: THE ONLY THING I

CAN TELL YOU ABOUT

CIRCUMCISION RIGHT NOW,

MEDICALLY, THOSE WHO ARE

UNCIRCUMCISED THERE IS A

POSSIBILITY OF CANCER OF

THE WOMAN.

THAT'S THE ONLY DANGER.

CERTAINLY IT IS NOT GOING

TO ENHANCE YOUR SEX LIFE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IN THE

WORLD SHE IS TALKING

ABOUT.

PLEASE GET CIRCUMCISED --

ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?

THAT'S CRAZY.

Wendy: I'M NOT AN

EXPERT ON THIS ONE.

Pat: YOU'RE NOT

SUPPOSED TO BE.

I THINK I AM.

THIS IS NUTS.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

PSALM 21: "HE SHALL GIVE

HIS ANGELS CHARGE OVER YOU

TO KEEP YOU IN ALL YOUR

WAYS."
