Gordon: A YOUNG MAN

FACES CANCER --

THIS ISN'T GOING TO BE

GOOD.

Gordon: -- FOR A

SECOND TIME.

EVERYWHERE AND GROWING.

Gordon: THE DIAGNOSIS

AND THE UNLIKELY CURE.

I'M GOING TO GO FOR IT,

EVEN IF IT KILLS ME.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

Gordon: WELL, GOOD

MORNING AND WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

MELANOMA, IT IS THE LEAST

COMMON BUT THE MOST

DEADLIEST FORM OF SKIN

CANCER.

FOR 2017, IT IS ESTIMATED

THERE WILL BE 87,000 NEW

CASES OF MELANOMA IN THE

UNITED STATES WITH OVER

9,000 DEATHS FROM THIS

DISEASE.

Terry: STARTLING

STATISTICS.

JORDAN WAS JUST 17 YEARS

OLD WHEN HE FIRST BEAT

MELANOMA.

HE WAS 23 WHEN.

CANCETHE CANCERRETURNED, AND HE WAS GIVEN

SIX MONTHS TO LIVE, AND

THEN DOCTORS DECLARED HE

WOULD DIE WITHIN DAYS.

YOU HEAR THE DOCTOR

KNOCKING ON THE DOOR AND

THE DOCTOR COMING IN AND

SITTING DOWN, AND YOU CAN

TELL BY THE LOOK ON HIS

FACE, THIS ISN'T GOING TO

BE GOOD.

Reporter: IT HAD BEEN

SIX YEARS SINCE JORDAN HAD

THE MELANOMA REMOVED, BUT

IT HAD RETURNED AND THIS

TIME IT WAS STAGE FOUR AND

HAD SPREAD TO HIS BRAIN

AND BEYOND.

IT WAS IN MY HEAD, MY

STOMACH, MY BACK, MY

LUNGS, EVERYWHERE, AND

GROWING.

Reporter: EVEN WITH

TREATMENTS, DOCTORS AT THE

MEDICAL CENTER GAVE JORDAN

ONLY SIX MONTHS TO LIVE.

WHAT YOU FEEL IN THAT

TIME IS YOUR HEART IS

RACING.

AND YOUR MIND IS RACING.

YOU FEEL BROKEN,

COMPLETELY BROKEN AND

DEVASTATED AND JUST

REACHING FOR WHOEVER YOU

CAN AND WHOEVER CAN WHO

YOU'RE REACHING FOR IS

BROKEN, TOO.

WHY HIM, LORD?

WHY NOT ME?

I WOULD RATHER TAKE HIS

PLACE AND DEAL WITH ALL OF

THE SUFFERING AND THE PAIN

AND AGONY AND ALL OF THAT.

RATHER THAN HAVE HIM GO

THROUGH IT.

Reporter: DOCTORS

IMMEDIATELY STARTED

RADIATION TO SHRINK THE

TUMOR IN JORDAN'S BRAIN.

AND THEY PERFORMED TWO

SURGERIES TO REMOVE PART

OF HIS BOWEL AND HIS

APPENDIX.

THEN DOCTORS DISCOVERED A

FAST-GROWING TUMOR ON HIS

NECK.

IT WAS THREATENING TO

PUT PRESSURE ON HIS

WINDPIPE AND TRACHEA, AND

HE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO

BREATHE AND HE WOULD DIE.

Reporter: DOCTORS

THOUGHT HIS ONLY HOPE WAS

INTERLUKAN TWO, BUT ONE

THAT WHEN USED COULD BE

FATAL.

WE WERE FORCED INTO

DOING THE RISKY TREATMENT

UNDER EVEN RISKIER

CIRCUMSTANCES.

WE HAD PROBABLY TWO DAYS

LEFT TO DO IT, OR NOT TO

DO IT AT ALL.

AND IT WAS IN THAT

MOMENT I HAD TO DECIDE TO

BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS MADE

US AS INDIVIDUALS AND NOT

STATISTICS.

Reporter: JORDAN AND

HIS PARENTS HAD BEEN

FERVENTLY PRAYING FOR HIS

RECOVERY.

AND AS WORD SPREAD, JORDAN

HEARD FROM PEOPLE ALL OVER

THE WORLD.

I HAD SO MANY PEOPLE

PRAYING FOR ME.

I WAS VERY FORTUNATE TO

HEAR FROM THEM.

I HAD OLD PEOPLE PRAYING

FOR ME.

I HAD KIDS PRAYING FOR ME.

I HAD STRANGERS WRITING

ME, TELLING ME, TEXTING ME

THAT THEY WERE PRAYING,

ASKING GOD TO INTERVENE.

I PRAYED FOR HOURS.

AND I PRAYED THAT THE LORD

WOULD HAVE MERCY.

AND EVERYTHING THAT WE

HAD -- EVERY OUNCE OF OUR

FAITH WAS RELYING THAT

THIS BOY WOULD BE RESCUED.

Reporter: THE TUMORS

BEGAN TO SHRINK AFTER THE

FIRST TREATMENT, TAKING

JORDAN OUT OF IMMEDIATE

DANGER.

IT WAS SLIGHTLY

SURPRISING TO ME.

IT WAS SURPRISING TO MY

FAMILY.

AND IT WAS SURPRISING TO

THE DOCTORS.

AND WITH EVERYBODY

SURPRISED AND FEELING

POSITIVE AND EXCITED,

SLIGHTLY HOLDING THEIR

BREATH, WE WERE JUST ALL,

LIKE, LET'S KEEP GOING.

LET'S KEEP FIGHTING.

GIVE ME ANOTHER DOSE OF

THAT HORRIBLE STUFF

BECAUSE IT IS WORKING, AND

I'M GOING TO GO FOR IT,

EVEN IF IT KILLS ME.

Reporter: OVER THE

NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS,

JORDAN ENDURED THREE MORE

ROUNDS OF INTERLUKAN.

AND 18 MONTHS AFTER HE WAS

DIAGNOSED, HE WAS ONCE

AGAIN WAITING FOR THE

DOCTOR'S KNOCK ON THE

DOOR.

THEY SAID JORDAN HAS

HAD A CONFIRMED COMPLETE

RESPONSE.

THE HEARTBREAK THAT WE

TALKED ABOUT, THE PAIN,

THE PHYSICAL PAIN, WAS

REDEEMED.

IT WAS A CONFIRMED,

COMPLETE RESPONSE TO THE

DRUG, TO THE POWER OF GOD

INTERVENING BY ALL OF THE

PEOPLE PRAYING.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN

EIGHT YEARS SINCE JORDAN

WAS GIVEN SIX MONTHS TO

LIVE.

WITH ONLY 2% RECOVERY RATE

FOR THESE CASES, THE

DOCTOR SAYS JORDAN BEAT

THE ODDS.

HE IS NOW A 31-YEAR-OLD

MAN WITH NO CANCER VISIBLE

IN BRAIN OR IN BODY.

Reporter: TODAY

JORDAN IS A SONGWRITER AND

MUSICIAN AND RUNS

youinspire.org, A WEBSITE

TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS WHO

FACE SIMILAR TRIALS.

MOST OF ALL, HE IS

GRATEFUL TO A GOD OF

MERCY, WHO CAN BE TRUSTED.

I BELIEVE IT TAUGHT ME

TO SEE HIM AS HE IS.

AND AS I AM.

AND THAT I NEED TO BE

JOYFULLY DEPENDENT ON HIS

MERCY AT ALL TIMES, THAT

I'M NOT IN CONTROL, THAT

HE IS.

AND THAT WHEN I PUT MY

TRUST IN HIM WITH EVERY

PART OF MY LIFE, WHETHER

IT'S MY HEALTH, MY JOY AND

CAREER AND PLANS AND MONEY

AND ALL OF THAT, THAT I

CAN BE JOYFULLY DEPENDENT

ON HIM BECAUSE HE IS

MERCIFUL, AND I HAVE THE

SCARS TO PROVE IT.

* YOU'RE ALMOST HOME

Terry: I NEED TO BE

JOYFULLY DEPENDENT UPON

HIM AT ALL TIMES.

I GUESS THAT'S THE GOAL

FOR ALL OF US, ISN'T IT?

I'M NOT SURE IT'S

SOMETHING WE QUICKLY GET

TO UNLESS WE'RE PUT IN

CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE WE

HAVE TO BE JOYFULLY

DEPENDENT ON HIM, IN SPITE

OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN ALL OF

THE ODDS ARE AGAINST YOU?

WHEN EVERYTHING THAT

YOU'RE LOOKING AT WITH

YOUR HUMAN EYES, AND

EVERYTHING THAT OTHERS ARE

SPEAKING TO YOU SAYS THERE

IS NO HOPE?

I JUST THINK OF THE

SCRIPTURE THAT WE ALL

SPEAK SO FREQUENTLY AND SO

FREELY, WHO'S REPORT WILL

YOU BELIEVE?

YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T REALLY

KNOW UNTIL YOUR PUT IN THE

PLACE THAT JORDAN WAS PUT

IN.

WHERE HE SAYS, NO MATTER

WHAT, I'M GOING TO FIGHT.

I'M GOING TO DO MY PART.

AND IF HE HADN'T HAD THE

MIRACLE, GOD WOULDN'T HAVE

LOVED HIM ANY LESS.

THIS IS WHAT GOD SAYS: "MY

WAYS ARE DIFFERENT THAN

YOUR WAYS.

MY THOUGHTS ARE DIFFERENT

THAN YOUR THOUGHTS.

MY WAYS ARE HIGHER THAN

YOUR WAYS."

WE CANNOT TOTALLY

UNDERSTAND ALL OF WHAT

HAPPENS IN OUR LIVES, BUT

WE CAN STAND ON OUR WORD

AND DO OUR PART.

THAT'S WHAT JORDAN DID.

HE WENT FOR IT.

HE BELIEVED GOD AND GOD

WAS THERE.

IN THE MOMENTS WHERE HE

HAD TWO DAYS MAYBE, AND HE

SAID, I'M GOING TO GO FOR

LIFE.

WHATEVER YOUR FACING

TODAY, YOU CHOOSE LIFE,

TOO.

GOD IS FOR YOU.

HE IS NOT AGAINST YOU.

HE IS THE LORD YOUR

HEALER.

HE IS THE GOD WHO SEES

YOU, WHO KNOWS THE NUMBER

OF HAIRS ON YOUR HEAD.

HE UNDERSTANDS.

HE WAYS ARE DIFFERENT THAN

OURS, BUT HIS HEART IS

ALWAYS, ALWAYS FOR US.

IF YOU NEED TO PRAY WITH

SOMEONE TODAY ABOUT A

SPECIFIC NEED IN YOUR

LIFE, OUR PHONE LINES ARE

ALWAYS AVAILABLE.

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

IT DOESN'T COST YOU

ANYTHING TO CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

THERE IS A FRIEND ON THE

OTHER END OF THAT LINE WHO

WOULD LOVE TO PRAY WITH

YOU TODAY.

WE HAVE SOME SPECIFIC

PRAYER REQUESTS THAT HAVE

COME IN.

Gordon: WE WANT TO

PRAY FOR YOU.

AND WE HAVE SOME PRAYER

REQUESTS THAT HAVE COME IN

ON OUR Facebook PAGE.

DEBBIE WRITES IN, "PLEASE

PRAY FOR MY HUSBAND, MIKE.

HE HAS CANCER AND IS

RECEIVING TREATMENT.

WE WANT HIM TO BE 100%

CANCER-FREE AND FOR IT TO

NEVER COME BACK."

AND THEN THIS IN FROM

ANNA: "PRAY FOR A TOTAL

HEALING MIRACLE FOR JUDE

FROM PARALYSIS.

WE ARE CLAIMING THAT HE

WILL WALK AGAIN."

AND MARGARET WRITES,

"PLEASE PRAY FOR MY GRAND

NEPHEW.

HE WAS JUST DIAGNOSED WITH

CYSTIC FIBROSIS, AND WE'RE

SO WORRIED ABOUT HIM."

JOIN WITH US IN PRAYER,

AND LET'S LOOK FOR THAT

FULL, THAT COMPLETE

RESPONSE THAT GOD WANTS.

DON'T EVER DOUBT THE WILL

OF GOD IN THIS.

JUST LIKE TO HEAVEN.

IS THERE ANYBODY SICK

THERE?

ANYBODY WITH CANCER?

AND THE ANSWER IS NO.

WELL, THAT'S GOD'S WILL.

AND WE'RE TO PRAY THAT

GOD'S WILL WOULD BE DONE

HERE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN

HEAVEN.

JOIN WITH US.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THESE

NEEDS TO YOU.

WE LIFT ALL OF THOSE WHO

HAVE CANCER, ALL THOSE WHO

ARE SUFFERING WITH

DEBILITATING ILLNESSES.

FOR THOSE WITH PARALYSIS,

THOSE WITH DIAGNOSIS WHERE

THE DOCTORS SAY THERE IS

NOTHING WE CAN DO FOR

YOU -- WELL, WE LOOK TO

YOU, THE AUTHOR AUTHOR AND THE

FINISHER OF OUR FAITH.

WE LOOK TO YOU, THE

CREATOR OF ALL THINGS.

AND WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD

DO CREATIVE MIRACLES NOW.

WHERE NERVE CONNECTIONS

HAVE BEEN SEVERED, WE ASK

THAT THEY BE RESTORED AND

THEY REGROW AGAIN.

FOR THOSE WHERE THE

DOCTORS SAY THERE IS NO

HOPE, COME AND GIVE THEM

HOPE.

BE THE GOD OF ALL COMFORT

TO THEM.

AND FOR ALL THOSE

SUFFERING WITH CANCER, WE

COME AGAINST IT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

AND WE SAY, CANCER CELLS

DIVIDE AND REPRODUCE NO

MORE.

STOP.

LEAVE THEIR BODIES NOW.

AND LET EVERYTHING BE

WHOLE AND COMPLETE IN

JESUS.

FOR WE ASK IT ALL IN

JESUS' NAME.

TERRY, GOD HAS GIVEN YOU

SOMETHING?

Terry: I JUST BELIEVE

THERE ARE MANY OF YOU WHO

HAVE BEEN GIVEN DIAGNOSES

THAT HAVE REALLY THROWN

YOU OFF BASE.

TODAY RECEIVE THE WORD OF

THE LORD.

HE IS THE LORD YOUR

HEALER.

YOUR HOPE IS IN HIM.

HIS HEALING IS COMPLETE

FOR YOU. JUST RECEIVE IT

NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: LORD, WE

WE RECEIVE YOU.

WE ASK THAT YOU COME AND

BE IN US, AND THAT YOUR

WILL WOULD BE DONE IN US,

AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE'RE

HERE FOR YOU.

IT'S OUR HONOR, OUR

PRIVILEGE TO PRAY WITH

YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK

UP THE PHONE AND CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, A WIFE GETS A SURPRISE

PHONE CALL AND LEARNS THAT

HER HUSBAND IS ARRESTED

FOR SEXUALLY ABUSING HER

DAUGHTER.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS HER

STORY.

IT'S NEXT, AFTER THIS.

Terry: WENDY ROCHE

THOUGHT SHE WAS MARRIED TO

MR. WONDERFUL.

INSTEAD, HE TURNED OUT TO

BE HER WORST NIGHTMARE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: THE

NIGHTMARE STARTED WHEN

WENDY ROCHE GOT A PHONE

CALL FROM THE POLICE.

IN A HORRIFYING MOMENT,

SHE LEARNED HER HUSBAND,

WHO WAS IN LAW

ENFORCEMENT, HAD BEEN

ARRESTED.

HE HAD BEEN SEXUALLY

ABUSING HER DAUGHTER FOR

THE PAST SIX YEARS.

DEVASTATED AT THE NEWS,

SHE CRIED OUT TO GOD FOR

HELP AS SHE FACED

HUMILIATION, HOMELESSNESS,

AND EVEN UNEMPLOYMENT.

IN HER BOOK, "UNBROKEN,"

WENDY SHARES HER STORY OF

STARTING OVER AND OFFERS

WORDS OF HOPE AND COMFORT

FOR THOSE WHO ARE

SUFFERING.

Terry: WELL, JOINING

US NOW IS WENDY ROCHE.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

THANK YOU.

Terry: AS I READ YOUR

BOOK, I THOUGHT, IT IS

JUST HARD TO IMAGINE WHAT

IT MUST HAVE BEEN LIKE TO

GET THAT PHONE CALL, SO

OUT OF THE BLUE, AND YOU

WERE SO UNSUSPECTING, BUT

IT DID CHANGE YOUR LIFE?

COMPLETELY.

MY LIFE WAS STRIPPED AWAY.

I HAD THE AGONY OF WHAT MY

CHILDREN HAD GONE THROUGH,

AND THE CHOICES THAT I

MADE.

Terry: YEAH.

THAT DIDN'T TURN OUT

THE WAY I HAD EXPECTED.

Terry: BUT HONESTLY,

YOU THOUGHT THAT YOUR

HUSBAND WAS JUST THIS

STELLER, STAND-UP GUY.

HE WAS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT.

THIS WAS YOUR DAUGHTER

FROM ANOTHER MARRIAGE.

YOU KNOW, YOU SAY IN THE

BOOK IT NEVER OCCURRED TO

YOU, AND YET YOU DID HAVE

A FEELING IN YOU THAT

SOMETHING WAS NOT RIGHT.

AND YOU OFTEN HEAR PEOPLE

WHO HAVE GONE THROUGH

THESE KINDS OF THINGS SAY

THAT.

WHAT WERE YOU

EXPERIENCING?

I WAS EXPERIENCING A

LOT OF CONFUSION AND JUST

AN UNSETTLEDNESS THAT WAS

IN MY HEART, THAT I

COULDN'T MAKE SENSE OF.

AND I WAS GOING FOR, I WAS

OFFERED A PROMOTION, AND

AT THE TIME MY HUSBAND HAD

SAID, OH, DON'T DO IT.

IT WILL JUST STRESS YOU

OUT.

AND HE ACTUALLY LINED UP A

COUNSELLING APPOINTMENT

FOR ME, TO GO TO A

COUNSELLOR.

AND THE COUNSELLOR AND I

TALKED AND TALKED MANY

SESSIONS, AND COULD NOT

FIGURE OUT WHAT THIS

UNSETTLENESS WAS.

I KNOW NOW WHAT IT WAS.

I LEARNED FROM THAT, IF

THERE IS AN UNSETTLEDNESS

IN ME -- I'M A NEW PERSON

NOW BECAUSE I REALIZE THAT

I HAVE THE LORD IN MY LIFE

NOW, AND IF I GET IN AN

UNSETTLEDNESS NOW, I'M ON

MY KNEES.

LORD, GIVE ME THE EYES TO

SEE WHAT I NEED TO SEE.

GIVE ME THE EARS TO HEAR

WHAT I NEED TO HEAR.

IF THERE IS DANGER, SHOW

ME.

HELP ME.

USE ME.

Terry: YOU ACTUALLY

FOUND THIS OUT BECAUSE

YOUR DAUGHTER WAS VISITLY

WITH HER BIOLOGICAL DAD

AND HAD BEEN TOLD BY YOUR

CURRENT HUSBAND -- NOT

YOUR CURRENT NOW, BUT

THEN, IF SHE EVER TOLD YOU

YOU WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO

EMOTIONALLY HANDLE IT AND

WOULD TAKE YOUR LIFE.

SO THIS IS HOW THE WHOLE

THING CAME OUT.

WHAT WAS SO ASTONISHING AS

I READ YOUR BOOK WAS THE

RAMIFICATIONS ONCE THIS

BECAME KNOWN TO YOU AND

YOUR CHILDREN.

IT WAS REALLY

UNBELIEVABLE.

I MEAN, YOU HAD MEDIA ON

YOUR DOOR, PEEKING IN YOUR

WINDOWS.

PEOPLE AT WORK NOW KNOW.

THE KIDS KNOW.

IT'S ON THE FRONT PA PAGE OF

THE NEWSPAPER.

HOW DID YOU CONTEND WITH

ALL OF THAT?

YOU KNOW, IT WAS SO

DIFFICULT.

IT WAS SO HUMILIATING.

AND -- BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT?

THERE IS A SHAME THAT GOES

WITH THIS, UNFORTUNATELY.

AND IT IS UNMERITED SHAME

ON THE VICTIM.

AND ALTHOUGH WE WEREN'T

THE ONES WHO MADE THAT

CHOICE TO ACT AND DO

INAPPROPRIATE AND ILLEGAL

THINGS, WE FELT LIKE WE

WERE THE ONES IN PRISON.

AND UNFORTUNATELY, THOSE

WHO GO THROUGH TRAUMA MANY

TIMES ARE THE ONES WHO

FEEL THEY'RE IMPRISONED

WITH THE MEDIA AND ALL OF

THE THINGS.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, I

DIDN'T WATCH TV FOR FIVE

YEARS AFTER THAT BECAUSE

OF THE IMPACT IT HAD.

AND NOW TO BE HERE ON TV

AND SAYING, GOD SAVED AND

HE CAN REDEEM AND HE CAN

MAKE YOU NEW --

Terry: THERE IS NOT

JUST A SHAME ATTACHED TO

IT.

THERE IS A BLAME ATTACHED

TO IT, TOO.

YOU BLAMED YOURSELF FOR

WHAT YOUR DAUGHTER HAD

EXPERIENCED.

HOW DID YOU GET TO THE

PLACE WHERE YOU COULD

FORGIVE YOURSELF?

YOU KNOW, A LOT OF TIME

WITH THE LORD.

I LOVE THAT HE SAYS IN

JEREMIAH 28: 13: WHEN YOU

SEEK ME, YOU WILL FIND ME,

WHEN YOU SEEK ME WITH ALL

OF YOUR HEART.

I WOULD SPEND SO MUCH TIME

WITH THE LORD IN PRAYER,

AND CRYING OUT MY HEART TO

HIM, AND LETIN LETTING HIM KNOW,

HELP.

I NEED YOUR HELP.

THERE WAS A MOMENT WHEN HE

SAID TO MY HEART, WENDY,

HAD YOU KNOWN WHAT THE

OUTCOME WOULD HAVE BEEN,

WOULD YOU HAVE MADE THE

CHOICE TO MARRY HIM?

AND THE ANSWER WAS NO.

HAD I KNOWN HOW IT WOULD

END, I NEVER WOULD HAVE

GONE THAT ROUTE.

SO THE LORD SLOWLY SHOWED

ME TO FORGIVE MYSELF.

AND HE ALSO SHOWED ME THAT

THERE IS NOTHING THAT I'VE

BEEN THROUGH THAT HE

HASN'T BEEN THROUGH

HIMSELF.

AND HE TOTALLY HAS THE

COMPASSION AND

UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT I'M

GOING THROUGH.

AND KNOWING THAT HIS LOVE

WAS THERE TO JUST PICK ME

UP AND CARRY US THROUGH,

MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE, HOW

HE CARRIED US THROUGH OUR

LIFE AND REESTABLISHED AND

REBUILT OUR LIFE IN

MIRACULOUS WAYS.

Terry: THIS HAPPENED

MANY YEARS AGO.

THE BOOK IS COMING OUT

NOW.

HOW IS YOUR DAUGHTER

TODAY?

YOU KNOW WHAT?

SHE IS A COURAGEOUS,

BRAVE, WONDERFUL WOMAN.

SHE HAS SUCH A COMPASSION

OF JUSTICE FOR THE

UNDERDOG.

SHE WANTS TO MAKE SURE

THAT PEOPLE ARE RESPECTED

AND CARED FOR.

AND SHE HAS BEEN A

WONDERFUL EXAMPLE TO ME,

BUT ALSO IN THIS -- SINCE

THE BOOK CAME OUT, I'VE

HAD THIS DEEP DESIRE TO

WANT TO DO MORE FOR THOSE

THAT ARE IN MY DAUGHTER'S

SHOES, AND THOSE IN THIS

SITUATION.

IT IS ASTONISHING, AND IT

IS A SCARY NUMBER.

Terry: HOW MANY

PEOPLE ARE THERE?

ONE IN THREE WOMEN AND

ONE IN FOUR MEN ARE

SEXUALLY ABUSED IN THEIR

LIFE.

EVEN MORE HORRIBLE THAN

THAT, BEFORE AGE 18, ONE

IN FOUR GIRLS AND ONE IN

SIX BOYS ARE SEXUALLY

ABUSED.

THAT'S A HUGE NUMBER.

IF YOU THINK OF HOW MANY

PEOPLE YOU KNOW, YOU COULD

JUST NUMBER OUT HOW MANY

ARE VULNERABLE TO THIS.

THEY SAY THERE ARE ABOUT

42 MILLION VICTIMS OF

CHILD ABUSE AND SEXUAL

ABUSE WALKING AROUND JUST

IN OUR NATION TODAY.

Terry: AND THE SAD

PART OF THAT IS, WITHOUT

HEALING IT WILL TRULY

IMPACT THEIR LIVES.

WHAT DO YOU WANT PEOPLE

WHO READ "UNBROKEN" TO

COME AWAY WITH?

I WANT THEM TO COME

AWAY WITH THE HOPE THAT I

FOUND, AND THAT'S WHY I

WROTE IT.

I DIDN'T WRITE IT TO TELL

A HORRIBLE STORY.

I TOLD IT TO SHOW THE

CONTRAST OF WHAT GOD CAN

DO WITH YOUR LIFE IF YOU

CHOOSE TO ALLOW HIM IN.

HE SAYS, I STAND AT THE

DOOR AND KNOCK, BUT IT IS

OUR CHOICE TO OPEN THAT

DOOR AND LET HIM IN.

AND WHEN I DID, HE REBUILT

MY LIFE TO SOMETHING

BEAUTIFUL.

I'VE HAD PEOPLE WHO SAID

IT AND WHO SAID IT IS HARD

TO READ THE HARD STUFF,

BUT I'M SO GLAD I FINISHED

IT BECAUSE I'M TALKING TO

GOD, I'M TRUSTING IN GOD.

MY LIFE IS CHANGING.

Terry: IT IS A

PROCESS FOR ALL OF US.

AND THAT'S WHY THEY CALL

HIM THE REDEEMER.

HE TAKES WHAT HAS BEEN

LOST AND HE MAKES

SOMETHING GOOD OUT OF IT.

THE BOOK IS CALLED

"UNBROKEN."

IF YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE

ABOUT WENDY'S STORY, THE

SUBTITLE IS "THE TRUE

STORY OF HOPE AND STARTING

OVER."

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS OR SOLD.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME.

Gordon: STILL AHEAD,

THE CHILDREN AT SCHOOL

MOCKED HER AND TOLD HER

SHE WAS IN A CULT.

HOW DID SHE RESPOND?

SHE BOLDLY INVITED THEM TO

CHURCH.

SEE HOW A CARTOON WON THEM

OVER WHEN WE COME BACK.

Gordon: CHRISTIANITY

IS ON THE RISE IN CHINA,

AND PEOPLE LIKE TIEN TIN

ARE A BIG REASON WHY.

SHE IS BOLDLY TELLING

OTHER CHILDREN ABOUT THE

GOSPEL THANKS TO A LITTLE

HELP FROM "SUPERBOOK."

Terry: TEEN TI Terry: TIEN TIN IS A

CHRISTIAN IN CHINA.

WHERE MOST PEOPLE ARE

MUSLIMS.

WE ARE TOLD THERE IS NO

GOD, BUT THAT NEVER

STOPPED ME FROM BELIEVING

THERE IS A GOD AND HOW HE

SAVED US OF OUR SINS WITH

HIS OWN BLOOD.

I WANT MY CLASSMATES TO BE

BLESSED AND SAVED, LIKE I

AM.

BUT SOMETIMES WHEN I

SHARE, THEY TELL ME I'M IN

A CULT AND THAT I AM

LYING.

ONE TIME A BOY MOCKED MY

FAITH, AND I CRIED.

Terry: FOR A MONTH,

TIEN TIN STOPPED GOING TO

CHURCH AND WAS AFRAID TO

SHARE THE GOSPEL.

THEN SHE HAD A TALK WITH

HER DAD AND REMEMBERED AN

EPISODE OF "SUPERBOOK" SHE

HAD SEEN THAT WAS

TRANSLATED INTO MANDARIN

FOR THE CHILDREN OF CHINA.

"SUPERBOOK" TAUGHT ME

LOTS OF PRINCIPLES ABOUT

LIFE, AND THAT MADE ME

WANT TO DO THINGS GOD'S

WAY AND PLEASE HIM.

PLUS, I FOUND OUT THAT

CHRIS AND JOY ARE JUST

LIKE ME.

Terry: TIEN TIN

LEARNED SHE HAD TO LOVE

HER ENEMIES, SO SHE

STARTED PRAYING FOR THE

STUDENTS WHO HAD HURT HER

FEELINGS.

AND WHEN SHE FOUND OUT

THERE WAS GOING TO BE A

"SUPERBOOK" PARTY AT

CHURCH, SHE INVITEDED HER

CLASSMATES.

THEY ALL CAME AND FOUND

IT VERY INTERESTING.

Terry: AFTER

"SUPERBOOK" WAS SHOWN, HER

SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER

ASKED IF THERE WAS ANYONE

WHO WANTED TO KNOW MORE

ABOUT JESUS, AND SOME OF

HER CLASSMATES STOOD UP.

I HAD NEVER BEEN TO

CHURCH BEFORE, SO THIS WAS

THE FIRST TIME I HEARD

ABOUT JESUS.

I LEARNED ABOUT HOW JESUS

COULD CHANGE MY LIFE.

NOW I WANT TO WATCH MORE

"SUPERBOOK."

HAVING MY CLASSMATES

MEET JESUS IS LIKE SAVING

THEIR LIVES.

IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY.

"SUPERBOOK" IS FANTASTIC.

MY WISH IS THAT MORE AND

MORE CHILDREN IN CHINA

WILL WATCH IT AND KNOW THE

LORD JESUS, AND THAT

EVERYONE AROUND THE WORLD

WILL ACCEPT GOD.

Gordon: WELL, THAT IS

A WONDERFUL PRAYER.

AND LET'S HAVE EVERYONE

ACCEPT GOD.

WE WANT TO GET THE STORIES

OF THE BIBLE TO THE

CHILDREN OF THE WORLD.

AND WE'RE USING

"SUPERBOOK" TO DO THAT.

WE'RE ON OUR WAY TO 50

LANGUAGES.

ONCE WE HIT 50 LANGUAGES,

WE WANT TO TAKE IT ALL THE

WAY TO 500 LANGUAGES.

SO CHILDREN HAVE THE

OPPORTUNITY AROUND THE

WORLD TO KNOW THE STORIES

OF THE BIBLE AND TO MEET

JESUS.

AND THEN EACH EPISODE

CONCLUDES WITH WHAT WE

CALL THE SALVATION POEM.

IT IS A SONG, WHERE YOU

SING A SONG OF SALVATION

TO JESUS.

AND YOU ASK HIM TO COME

INTO YOUR HEART.

IT IS WONDERFUL WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN CHILDREN GET

THAT MESSAGE AND

UNDERSTAND IT.

AND THEN THE INCREDIBLE

THING THAT WE DIDN'T

ANTICIPATE WHEN WE WERE

CREATING IT, IS THAT ONCE

THEY GET IT, THEY WANT TO

SHARE IT.

AND THEY WANT TO SHARE IT

WITH THEIR FAMILY, THEIR

FRIENDS, AND THEY'RE

BECOMING EVANGELISTS, AND

IT IS ABSOLUTELY

INCREDIBLE.

IT IS ALL MADE POSSIBLE

BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE YOU

CARE ENOUGH TO GIVE, TO

SAY, YES, TOGETHER WE CAN

TAKE THE STORIES OF THE

BIBLE TO THE CHILDREN OF

THE WORLD.

SO IF THAT'S YOU AND YOU

WANT TO PARTICIPATE, ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL US:

1-800-700-7000.

AND SAY, I WANT TO GIVE TO

"SUPERBOOK."

WE'VE GOT A "SUPERBOOK"

D.V.D. CLUB FOR YOU.

THERE IS A WAY YOU CAN GET

THE EPISODES.

WE ALSO HAVE A FREE

"SUPERBOOK" APP.

IT IS ALL MADE POSSIBLE

BECAUSE PEOPLE CARE ENOUGH

TO GIVE.

SO IF THAT'S YOU, CALL US

NOW: 1-800-700-7000.

> HERE IS A WORD FOR YOU

FROM ROMANS: "NOW MAY THE

GOD OF HOPE FILL YOU WITH

ALL JOY AND PEACE IN

BELIEVING THAT YOU MAY

ABOUND IN HOPE BY THE

POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN.
