The 700 Club - February 24, 2017

Ruby Bridges remembers the day that changed America when, as a six-year-old, she became a Civil Rights hero just by walking to school. Plus, author Vicki Rose shares about the benefits of sticking with a broken marriage. Read Transcript


Wendy: THE 6-YEAR-OLD

WHO BECAME A CIVIL RIGHTS

HERO.

I THOUGHT I STUMBLED

INTO A PARADE.

Wendy: JUST BY

WALKING TO SCHOOL.

FOUR VERY TALL WHITE

MEN WERE STANDING AT THE

DOOR.

Wendy: SHE REMEMBERS

THE DAY THAT CHANGED

AMERICA.

I REMEMBER THEM

CHANTING, TWO, FOUR, SIX,

EIGHT, WE DON'T WANT TO

INTEGRATE.

> EACH AND EVERY ONE OF

US COME INTO THE WORLD

WITH A CLEAN HEART.

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

TODAY PRESIDENT TRUMP

BECOMES THE FIRST

PRESIDENT SINCE RONALD

REAGAN TO ADDRESS THE

CONSERVATIVE POLITICAL

ACTION CONFERENCE.

LAST NIGHT VICE-PRESIDENT

PENCE TOLD THE CROWD THAT

THE PRESIDENT IS GOING TO

FOLLOW THROUGH ON HIS

CAMPAIGN PROMISES.

Wendy: AND ONE OF

THOSE PROMISES, REPEALING

AND REPLACING OBAMACARE.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Caitlin: VICE

VICE-PRESIDENT PENCE

RALLIED CONSERVATIVES

AROUND PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

AGENDA THURSDAY NIGHT,

SPEAKING ON THE FIRST DAY

OF THE C-PAC CONFERENCE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS A

MAN OF HIS WORD, AND WE'RE

KEEPING HIS PROMISES.

OVER AT THE WHITE HOUSE, I

LIKE TO SAY, WE'RE IN THE

PROMISE-KEEPING BUSINESS

THESE DAYS.

Reporter: PENCE

THRASHED THE DEMOCRATIC

PARTY FOR MAKING PROMISES

TO THE PEOPLE THEY

COULDN'T KEEP.

AND HE SAID IT IS TIME TO,

QUOTE, "PROVE OUR ANSWERS

ARE THE RIGHT ANSWERS.

RESPECT FOR THE

CONSTITUTION AND THE

VALUES THAT MADE AMERICA

GREAT AND THE DEEP AND

ABIDING FAITH AND GOODNESS

OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Reporter: AND JOHN

BOEHNER SAID ON THURSDAY

THAT REPUBLICANS WOULDN'T

REPEAL OBAMACARE BUT

SIMPLY FIX IT, PENCE SAID

THE G.O.P. WOULD GET RID

OF THE HEALTH CARE LAW.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

LEADING THE FIGHT TO

REPEAL AND REPLACE

OBAMACARE.

[APPLAUSE]

AND LET ME ASSURE YOU,

AMERICA'S OBAMACARE

NIGHTMARE IS ABOUT TO END.

[APPLAUSE]

YOU KNOW, DESPITE THE

BEST EFFORTS OF LIBERAL

ACTIVISTS AT TOWNHALLS

AROUND THE COUNTRY, THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW

BETTER.

OBAMACARE HAS FAILED.

AND OBAMACARE MUST GO.

Caitlin: OTHER KEY

MEMBERS OF THE TRUMP WHITE

HOUSE SPOKE TO THE

CONSERVATIVE CROWD,

INCLUDING STEVE BANNON AND

PRIEBUS.

SAYING THAT THE BATTLES

BETWEEN THE MEDIA AND THE

ADMINISTRATION ARE FAR

FROM OVER.

IT IS NOT ONLY TO GET

BETTER, IT IS GOING TO GET

WORSE.

THEY ARE CORPORATEISTS,

GLOBALIST MEDIA THAT ARE

ADAMANTLY OPPOSED --

ADAMANTLY OPPOSED TO AN

ECONOMIC NATIONALIST

AGENDA LIKE TRUMPETER HAS.

Caitlin: BANNON

STRESSED THAT THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION WOULD

CONTINUE TO FIGHT, AND HE

ENCOURAGED THE AUDIENCE TO

HOLD THE PRESIDENT'S TEAM

ACCOUNTABLE FOR DELIVERING

ON THE PROMISES IT HAS

MADE.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: IT IS GOING

TO BE A VERY INTERESTING

POLITICAL SEASON, AND IT

SEEMS LIKE THE CAMPAIGNING

HASN'T STOPPED.

BUT IF TRUMP CAN DELIVER

ON HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISES,

I THINK THAT WILL BE A

FIRST IN MY LIFETIME,

WHERE ALL OF THE CAMPAIGN

PROMISES ARE FOLLOWED UP

WITH ACTUAL ACTION ONCE

THEY HIT OFFICE.

SO WE'LL SEE.

BUT IT'S GOING TO BE A

ROUGH BATTLE, AND THE

DEMOCRATS ARE ALREADY

CALLING FOR IMPEACHMENT,

AND HE HASN'T BEEN IN THE

OFFICE MUCH MORE THAN A

MONTH.

AND THEY'RE ALREADY SAYING

HE NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED.

> THE DEMOCRATIC

NATIONAL COMMITTEE IS

MEETING THIS WEEKEND AND

THEY HAVE A DIFFICULT

CHOICE TO MAKE.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

GORDON.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE NOW THE

CLEAR MINORITY PARTY, AND

THEY'RE HOPING TO FIND A

WAY OUT BY NEXT YEAR'S

MID-TERM ELECTIONS.

BUT THEY MUST FIRST DECIDE

WHO WILL LEAD THEM OUT OF

THE POLITICAL WILDERNESS,

AND THAT CHOICE HAS BECOME

A BATTLE FOR THE SOUL OF

THE PARTY.

WITH MARCHES,

DEMONSTRATIONS, AND

TOWNHALL PROTESTS,

DEMOCRATS PROJECT A UNITED

OPPOSITION TO PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

BUT DIG A LITTLE DEEPER,

AND IT IS EASY TO FIND

SEPARATION.

DIFFERENT APPROACHES ARE

ON CLEAR DISPLAY AS THE

PARTY TRIES TO FIGURE OUT

WHO WILL LEAD THE

DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL

COMMITTEE AS THE NEXT

CHAIRMAN.

WHILE EIGHT CANDIDATES

WANT THE JOB, TWO NAMES

TOP THE LIST HEADING INTO

THE WEEKEND ELECTION.

FORMER OBAMA LABOR

SECRETARY TOM PEREZ, AND

MINS CONGRESSMAN ET KEITH

ELLISON.

WE HAVE SEEN FROM THE

GET-GO THAT THIS PERSON

WANTS TO TURN THE CLOCK

BACK, AND THE DEMOCRATIC

PARTY NEEDS TO TAKE THE

FIGHT TO DONALD TRUMP.

WHEN WE LEAD WITH OUR

VALUES, WHEN WE LEAD WITH

OUR CONVICTION, THAT'S HOW

WE SUCCEED.

Reporter: SOME

OBSERVERS SAY THE RACE

BETWEEN THESE TWO

RESEMBLES THE BITTER PRIME

PRIMARY BETWEEN HILLARY

CLINTON AND BENITO

SANTIAGO.

ELECTIONS EXPERT NATHAN

GONZALEZ SAYS THIS IS NOT

UNCOMMON FOR THE LOSING

PARTY, TELLING CBN NEWS

THE D.N.C. FIGHT IS A

BROADER FIGHT FOR THE

HEART AND SOUL OF THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

WHEN A PARTY DOESN'T

CONTROL THE WHITE HOUSE,

THERE IS NO CLEAR LEADER.

THIS IS JUST ONE AREA

WHERE THE FIGHT IS PLAYING

OUT.

THE BATTLE EVEN CAUGHT THE

ATTENTION OF PRESIDENT

TRUMP, WHO TWEETED, "ONE

THING I WILL SAY ABOUT

REPRESENTATIVE KEITH

ELLISON IS THAT HE IS THE

ONE WHO PREDICTED EARLY

THAT I WOULD WIN."

ROLAND MARTIN, HOST OF

NEWS 1 NOW, TOLD CBN NEWS

HE BELIEVES DEMOCRATS WILL

ULTIMATELY COME TOGETHER

FOR ONE REASON.

YOU MAY NOT LIKE PEREZ,

YOU MAY NOT LIKE ELLISON,

BUT YOU PROBABLY HATE

TRUMP MORE.

SO THE BOTTOM LINE IS A

HATRED FOR TRUMP WILL

BRING TOGETHER ANY DIVIDED

FACTION.

Reporter: BUT THE

QU

COULD PLAY A CENTRAL PART

IN THAT PLAN.

CHRIS MITCHELL SHOWS US

HOW.

Chris: ISRAEL IS ONE

OF THE MOST ADVANCEDED

COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD IN

CYBER-SECURITY.

ISRAEL IS AT THE

CUTTING-EDGE OF

CYBER-DEFENSE, AND WE CAN

USE ALL OF THE HELP WE CAN

GET.

Chris: THIS DOCTOR,

HEAD OF THE ISRAELI

NATIONAL CYBER-DIRECTORATE

SAYS THERE ARE SEVERAL

REASONS.

ONE IS OUR NEED FOR

SECURITY.

AND CYBER-SECURITY IS PART

OF SECURITY IN GENERAL.

THE SECOND ONE IS OUR

HEIGHTENED INDUSTRY.

AND THE THIRD ONE IS OUR

SECURITY FORCES.

Chris: HE SPOKE TO

CBN NEWS IN TEL AVIV

DURING ONE OF THE WORLD'S

LARGEST CYBER-TRADE

CONFERENCES, CYBER-TECH

2017.

HE SAYS A MAJOR CHALLENGE

IS THAT CYBER-SPACE

DOESN'T HAVE BORDERS.

WE TALK ABOUT, FOR

EXAMPLE, THAT THERE ARE

NATIONS AND WE TALK ABOUT

TRANSPORTATION, AND WE

TALK ABOUT THE FINANCIAL

SYSTEMS.

WHEREVER YOU USE COMPUTER

SYSTEMS, IT CAN BE USED BY

THE BAD GUYS.

Chris: RUDY GIULANI

TOLD CBN NEWS WE'RE NOOT

INOT INA CYBER-WAR YET.

I DON'T THINK IT IS A

FULLY DECLARED WAR OR

ONGOING WAR, BUT WE HAVE A

LOT OF CYBER-ATTACKS FOR

DIFFERENT REASONS.

AND, OF COURSE, WE HAVE A

GREAT CONCERN IN THE

UNITED STATES WITH

CYBER-ATTACKS FROM

TERRORISTS, NOT JUST FROM

NATIONS.

Chris: ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU HAS A WARNING

ABOUT ONE OF THE GROWING

THREATS, THE INTERNET OF

THINGS, THE I.O.T.

THE INTERNET OF THINGS

CAN BE HIJACKED FOR

DANGEROUS PURPOSES WITH

DANGEROUS RESULTS.

AGAIN, WHAT YOU SEE TODAY

IS GOING TO GET A LOT

WORSE IN THE FUTURE IF WE

DON'T BAND TOGETHER.

Chris: HEIN TOMOR IS

THE FORMER HEAD OF

INTELLIGENCE IN THE ASSAD

REGIME, AND HE SAID

INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION

MUST IMPROVE.

WE NEED TO PROTECT

OURSELVES.

EVEN BEFORE 9-1-1, WE

STILL NEED THIS KIND OF

WAKEUP CALL IN ORDER TO

PROTECT THE WESTERN CIVIL

CIVILIZATION.

Chris: THAT INCLUDES

THE I.O.T., WHICH RANGES

FROM SMART APPLIANCES LIKE

REPRITCREFRIGERATORS TO

INTELLIGENCE AND BEYOND.

THIS FORMER DIRECTOR OF

ISRAEL CYBER-SECURITY GAVE

A CHILLING SCENARIO OF THE

DARK SIDE OF THIS

TECHNOLOGY.

YOU'RE DRIVING YOUR

CAR, AND SUDDENLY YOU

HEAR, ALL RIGHT, THIS IS

JOHN THE TERRIBLE GUY, AND

I HACKED YOUR CAR.

AND IF YOU DON'T TRANSFER

NOW THAT KIND OF MONEY TO

MY ACCOUNT, JUST LOOK WHAT

I CAN DO, AND THEN YOU

ACCELERATE THE CAR.

Chris: FOR NOW, THE

MISSION IS TO FIND OUT HOW

TO STOP THE BAD GUYS

BEFORE THEY CAN DISRUPT

LIFE IN THE WEST AND THE

REST OF THE WORLD.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS.

John: A REVEALING

LOOK AT THE DARK SIDE OF

THE TECHNOLOGICAL AGE.

Gordon: IT IS A

REVEALING LOOK.

IT IS CERTAINLY ACTING

LIKE A CYBER-SKIRMISH WITH

VARIOUS GROUPS TESTING THE

VARIOUS SYSTEMS AND TRYING

TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO

EXPLOIT VULNERABILITIES,

AND WE'RE RIGHT IN THE

MIDDLE OF THAT.

AT THE SAME TIME, THE PACE

OF TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE,

YOU MAY THINK IT IS

OVERWHELMING NOW, BUT GET

READY.

RIGHT NOW IS THE SLOWEST

IT IS GOING TO BE THE REST

OF YOUR LIFETIME.

THIS PACE IS GOING TO

INCREASE.

AND AS NATIONS START TO

DEVELOP ARTIFICIAL

INTELLIGENCE, DEEP

LEARNING, LOOKING AT HUGE

DATA SYSTEMS IN ORDER TO

FIND TRENDS, THE INTERNET

OF THINGS, THE ABILITY TO

HACK INTO THAT KIND OF

TECHNOLOGY -- GET READY.

WE NEED TO BE FOREWARNED

ON THIS.

AND I, FOR ONE, AM

STARTING TO DISCONNECT

SOME THINGS BECAUSE I JUST

DON'T WANT THAT MUCH DATA

ABOUT ME OUT THERE ON THE

INTERNET.

SO I'M TRYING TO PULL BACK

BECAUSE I'M WORRIED ABOUT

IT.

I'M NOT TRYING TO GET YOU

WORRIED ABOUT IT, BUT I DO

THINK OUR GOVERNMENT NEEDS

TO BE WORRIED ABOUT IT.

I DO THINK OUR TECHNOLOGY

COMPANIES NEED TO BE

WORRIED ABOUT IT BECAUSE

IF THESE EXPLOITS BECOME

REAL AND THEN BECOME INTO

THE HANDS OF A COUNTRY

THAT WANTS TO TAKE US ON,

JUST IMAGINE NORTH KOREA

WITH THIS KIND OF

TECHNOLOGY.

WHAT WOULD IRAN DO WITH

THIS TECHNOLOGY AGAINST

ISRAEL?

THESE ARE VERY SCARY TIMES

AND VERY SCARY QUESTIONS.

Wendy: ANYTHING YOU

WANT TO TELL US, GORDON?

EVERYTHING IS ALREADY OUT

THERE, RIGHT?

Gordon: WELL, I'M

UNPLUGGING SOME THINGS SO

THAT THE FUTURE DATA

COLLECTION DOESN'T HAPPEN.

BUT, YEAH, A LOT IS OUT

THERE.

Wendy: I HAVE NOTHING

TO HIDE.

Gordon: YOUR CELL

PHONE IS WATCHING YOU.

ELECTRODES ARE RECORDING

EVERYTHING IN THE ROOM.

Wendy: COMING UP, ONE

OF THE FIRST

AFRICAN-AMERICAN CHILDREN

TO INTEGRATE AN ALL-WHITE

SCHOOL.

I REMEMBER THEM

CHANTING, TWO, FOUR,

SIX,ALITY, WE DON',

EIGHT, WE DON'T WANT TO

INTEGRATE.

AND THEY KEPT POINTING AT

ME.

Wendy: RUBY BRIDGES

SHARES THE AMAZING STORY

BEHIND THE FAMOUS

PAINTING, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Gordon: IT'S AN

ICONIC IMAGE OF THE CIVIL

RIGHTS MOVEMENT, THE

PAINTING BY NORMAN

ROCKWELL CALLED "THE

PROBLEM WE ALL LIVE WITH."

THE IMAGE DEPICTS THE DAY

THAT 6-YEAR-OLD RUBY

BRIDGES WAS ESCORTED TO

SCHOOL BY FOUR U.S. DEPUTY

MARSHALS.

THAT WAS 56 YEARS AGO, AND

TODAY RUBY STILL REMEMBERS

IT LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY.

WHEN WE TURNED THE

CORNER, I SAW ALL OF THESE

PEOPLE.

Reporter:

NOVEMBER 14, 1960, IT WAS

RUBY BRIDGES FIRST DAY AT

SCHOOL IN NEW ORLEANS.

I REMEMBER THEM

CHANTING, TWO, FOUR, SIX,

EIGHT, WE DON'T WANT TO

INTEGRATE.

Reporter: IT HAD BEEN

FIVE YEARS SINCE THE

SUPREME COURT MANDATED THE

DESEGREGATION OF SCHOOLS.

NOW WASHINGTON WAS PUTTING

PRESSURE ON LOUISIANA AND

OTHER STATES WHO FAILED TO

COMPLY.

CITY OFFICIALS IN NEW

ORLEANS GAVE 150 BLACK

KINDERGARTENERS AN

ENTRANCE EXAM, ONE THEY

HAD NO CHANCE OF PASSING.

BUT SIX OF THE 150 PASSED

THAT TEST.

RUBY WAS ONE OF THEM.

EVERYONE WAS COMING

OVER AND CONGRATULATING MY

PARENTS.

SHE IS SO SMART.

WE'RE SO PROUD OF HER.

SO I ACTUALLY THOUGHT I

WAS SO SMART THAT I PASSED

THIS TEST THAT WOULD ALLOW

ME TO GO FROM FIRST GRADE

TO COLLEGE.

Reporter: THREE

GIRLS, INCLUDING RUBY,

WERE SELECTED TO ATTEND

WILLIAM FRANCE ELEMENTARY.

BUT BY THE END OF THE DAY,

THE OTHER TWO GIRLS

DROPPED OUT.

MY PARENTS ONLY SAID,

RUBY, YOU'RE GOING TO GO

TO A NEW SCHOOL TODAY, AND

YOU BETTER BEHAVE.

AND THERE WAS A KNOCK AT

THE DOOR, AND FOUR VERY

TALL WHITE MEN WERE

STANDING AT THE DOOR.

I REMEMBER THINK -- WHO

ARE THEY?

Reporter: THOSE FOUR

MEN WERE UNITED NATIONS

MARSHALS, AND THEIR JOB

WAS TO ESCORT RUBY TO AND

FROM SCHOOL.

ONE OF THE MEN WAS CHARLES

BURKES.

WELL, WE HAD A LOT OF

DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST

WHAT WE WERE DOING.

THE MAIN THING WAS JUST BE

SURE NOTHING HAPPENED TO

HER.

WE WOULD TELL HER, JUST

STAY CLOSE TO US.

WE'LL BE ALL RIGHT.

THERE WERE BARRICADES

EVERYWHERE.

THERE WERE CAMERAS

EVERYWHERE.

I THOUGHT I HAD STUMBLED

INTO A PARADE.

I ACTUALLY THOUGHT IT WAS

MARDI GRAS.

IT DIDN'T SEEM TO

BOTHER HER ANY.

SHE WAS JUST DOING WHAT

SHE HAD BEEN TOLD TO DO.

Reporter: RUBY'S

MOTHER WENT AS WELL.

ONCE INSIDE, THEY WERE

TAKEN TO THE PRINCIPAL'S

OFFICE WHERE THEY STAYED

ALL DAY.

THERE THEY WATCHED WHITE

PARENTS SCRAMBLE IN AND

OUT OF CLASSROOMS, TAKING

THEIR CHILDREN OUT OF

SCHOOL.

500 KIDS WALKED OUT OF

SCHOOL THAT DAY.

I DIDN'T THOUGH WHA KNOW WHAT WAS

GOING ON BECAUSE NOBODY

EXPLAINED ANYTHING TO ME.

FINALLY THE BELL RANG AND

SOMEONE CAME INTO THE

OFFICE AND SAID, SCHOOL IS

DISMISSED.

YOU CAN LEAVE.

AND I REMEMBER SITTING

THERE AND THINKING, WOW,

COLLEGE IS EASY.

Reporter: BY THE NEXT

DAY, THE CROWDS HAD

DOUBLED.

AND THEY KEPT POINTING

AT ME AND SHOUTING.

THEY KEPT SAYING, WE'RE

GOING TO POISON HER.

WE'RE GOING TO HANG HER.

I WAS IN FAVOR OF WHAT

WE WERE DOING.

I KNEW WHAT WE WERE DOING

WAS RIGHT, AND WE WERE

GOING TO MAKE SURE IT

HAPPENED.

Reporter: THIS TIME

RUBY WAS TAKEN TO A

CLASSROOM.

I REMEMBER LOOKING INTO

THAT CLASSROOM AND ALL I

SAW WAS EMPTY DESKS.

I DIDN'T SEE ONE CHILD.

Reporter: BUT THERE

WAS ONE PERSON THERE, HER

TEACHER, BARBARA HENRY.

COMING FROM BOSTON, SHE

WAS THE ONLY ONE WILLING

TO TEACH RUBY.

I REMEMBER LOOKING AT

HER AND THINKING, SHE'S

WHITE.

I HAD NEVER SEEN A WHITE

TEACHER BEFORE.

SHE LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE

THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE.

SHE WASN'T.

I ALWAYS SAY THAT SHE

SHOWED ME HER HEART.

Reporter: THE

FOLLOWING WEEKS STUDENTS

STARTED TO RETURN, BUT THE

PRINCIPAL CONFINED RUBY TO

HER CLASSROOM, AND DIDN'T

ALLOW HER TO PLAY OUTSIDE

OR EAT IN THE CAFETERIA.

I REMEMBER GOING TO THE

BACK OF THE CLASSROOM TO

SHARPEN MY PENCIL, AND YOU

COULD LOOK ON TO THE

PLAYGROUND.

AND THERE WERE THESE HUGE

OAK TREES, AND SWINGS AND

SLIDES, AND I KEPT

THINKING, AS I SHARPENED

MY PENCIL, WHERE ARE THE

KIDS?

Reporter: BY THE END

OF THE SCHOOL YEAR, THE

PROTESTS HAD DISBANDED,

AND RUBY WAS FINALLY

ALLOWED TO MEET THE OTHER

CHILDREN.

I FINALLY FOUND THEM.

AND I WAS SO EXCITED.

SO I WENT IN TO PLAY WITH

THEM.

THIS LITTLE BOY LOOKED AT

ME, AND HE SAID, I CAN'T

PLAY WITH YOU.

MY MOM SAID NOT TO PLAY

WITH YOU BECAUSE YOUR A

NIGGER.

SO THAT'S WHAT THIS WAS

ABOUT.

IT'S NOT MARDI GRAS.

AND THIS ISN'T COLLEGE.

IT'S ABOUT ME.

IT'S ABOUT ME AND THE WAY

I LOOK AND THE COLOR OF MY

SKIN.

AND IN MY MIND, THAT WAS

OKAY.

YES, HE HURT MY FEELINGS,

BUT I WASN'T ANGRY WITH

HIM BECAUSE I FELT LIKE HE

WAS EXPLAINING TO ME WHY

HE COULDN'T PLAY WITH ME.

IF MY PARENTS SAID, RUBY,

DON'T PLAY WITH HIM, HE IS

ASIAN, HISPANIC, INDIAN,

MUSLIM, WHITE, MIXED RACE,

JEWISH, GAY, I WOULD NOT

HAVE PLAYED WITH HIM.

I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE THERE

WAS ANYTHING FOR ME TO

FORGIVE.

THE FACT THAT IN MY MIND

HE WAS EXPLAINING TO ME

AND THAT I WHAT HAVE DONE

THE SAME THING, IT WASN'T

LIKE I WAS ANGRY WITH HIM.

SO THERE WAS NOTHING THERE

TO FORGIVE.

THE FACT THAT WHEN I

PASSED THE CROWD, I

THOUGHT IT WAS MARDI GRAS,

THERE WAS NOTHING THERE

FOR ME TO FORGIVE.

Reporter: RUBY

RETURNED THE FOLLOWING

YEAR.

SHE HAD A NEW TEACHER AND

A ROOM FULL OF CLASSMATES.

SHE WENT ON TO ATTEND AN

INTEGRATED HIGH SCHOOL,

AND EVENTUALLY GRADUATED

FROM KANSAS CITY BUSINESS

SCHOOL WITH A DEGREE.

AND WHEN HE MARRIED AND

BEGAN RAISING A FAMILY,

SHE TAUGHT HER CHILDREN TO

RELY ON GOD.

SHE ALWAYS FELL ON HER

FACE AND MADE SURE YOU DID

SO AS WELL.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO

DISLIKES YOU, AS LONG AS

YOU HAVE THAT FAITH AND

THAT RELATIONSHIP WITH

GOD, YOU'RE FINE.

Reporter: RUBY

RETURNED TO WILLIAM FRANCE

ELEMENTARY IN 1993, WHEN

SHE ENROLLED HER THREE

NIECES.

SO TO BUILD BRIDGES

BETWEEN THE RACES, SHE

VOLUNTEERED AS A LE LIASON.

AND SOON AFTER SHE

LAUNCHED THE "RUBY

BRIDGES' FOUNDATION," AND

BEGAN SHARING HER STORY

WITH STUDENTS ALL OVER THE

U.S.

I SEE HOPE THAT MOST OF

US DON'T SEE.

I'M IN SCHOOLS EVERY DAY.

I'M SO HUMBLED BY THE WAY

MY STORY MOVES KIDS.

IT'S SO SIMPLE.

HOW MRS. HENRY DIDN'T

JUDGE ME, HOW ALL I WANTED

WAS A FRIEND -- KIDS GET

THAT.

THEY UNDERSTAND THAT.

OUR KIDS KNOW NOTHING

ABOUT RACISM.

IT IS US, AS ADULTS, WE

TAKE RACISM AND WE PASS IT

ON TO OUR KIDS, AND THAT'S

WHY IT IS STILL AROUND.

EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US

COME INTO THE WORLD WITH A

CLEAN HEART.

I BELIEVE THAT IF WE ARE

GOING TO GET PAST OUR

RACIAL DIFFERENCES, EVEN

TODAY, IT'S GOING TO COME

FROM OUR KIDS.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN

OVER 55 YEARS SINCE RUBY

WALKED UP THOSE STEPS AND

TOOK HER PLACE IN HISTORY.

TODAY HER LEGACY CONTINUES

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

I KNEW IT COULD BE

DONE.

I'VE ALWAYS TOLD RUBY

THAT, THAT I'M GLAD I WAS

ABLE TO HAVE SOMETHING TO

DO WITH IT.

TO HAVE EQUALITY, IT

TAKES SOMEONE WITH COURAGE

TO MAKE THAT CHANGE SO

THAT WE CAN COME TOGETHER.

AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE A

GREAT FAITHFUL FOUNDATION

TO STAND UP TO SOMETHING

THAT YOU TRULY BELIEVE.

MY SUPER HERO, SHE DOES

THAT EVERY DAY.

OUT OF THE

COMMANDMENTS, IF YOU COULD

ONLY KEEP ONE, THE ONE YOU

SHOULD KEEP IS LOVE THY

NEIGHBOR.

THAT IS THE KEY.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO CARE

ABOUT YOU AS A PERSON -- I

HAVE TO CARE ABOUT YOU AS

A PERSON AND A HUMAN

BEING.

I BELIEVE THE LONGER THAT

I LIVE, THAT IT HAS

EVERYTHING TO DO WITH

LOVE.

Gordon: IT IS VERY

DEEP WISDOM FROM RUBY.

THINK BACK ON OUR HISTORY.

AND REALIZE IT HAS ONLY

BEEN FOUR GENERATIONS

SINCE SLAVERY WAS LEGAL IN

THE UNITED STATES OF

AMERICA.

IT HAS ONLY BEEN FOUR

GENERATIONS.

AND HER WORDS, RACISM IS

TALLEST, IS TRUE.

THAT WE CREATE THIS

OTHERNESS, WE CREATE THESE

DIVISIONS, AND THEN WE

PASS THEM ON.

IT HAS ONLY BEEN TWO

GENERATIONS SINCE THE

MASSIVE RESISTANCE TO

DESEGREGATION IN THE

SOUTH.

THREE GENERATIONS SINCE

THE JIM CROWE LAWS.

SO WHAT ARE WE LOOKING AT

TODAY WHEN WE SEE THE

"BLACK LIVES MATTER"

MOVEMENT, WHEN WE SEE WHAT

IS GOING ON IN OUR INNER

CITIES, WHEN WE SEE THE

LACK OF OPPORTUNITY THAT

EXISTS TODAY, WHEN WE SEE

THE INCREDIBLE

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE WITHIN

THE BLACK COMMUNITY, WHEN

YOU SEE THE INCREDIBLE

INCARCERATION RATE IN THE

BLACK COMMUNITY -- WHAT DO

WE DO?

AND AS CHRISTIANS, WHAT DO

WE DO?

RUBY'S WORDS ARE FULL OF

WISDOM.

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR.

REACH OUT TO THEM.

REALIZE THAT THEY ARE YOUR

BROTHERS AND YOUR SISTERS.

AND WE'RE THE ONES TO

BUILD THOSE BRIDGES.

WE'RE THE ONES TO SAY,

YES, WE CAN BE ONE IN

CHRIST.

FOR IN HIM THERE IS

NEITHER JEW NOR GREEK,

MALE NOR FEMALE, SLAVE NOR

FREE.

WE ARE ALL ONE IN HIM.

AND WHEN WE SHOW THAT TO

THE WORLD, WE'LL SEE

WONDERFUL CHANGE IN OUR

COMMUNITIES.

WENDY?

Wendy: WOW, A

POWERFUL STORY.

> STILL AHEAD, MEET A

WIFE WHO'S HUSBAND WAS

ADDICTED TO COCAINE, OTHER

WOMEN, AND WORK.

FOR 10 LONG YEARS HE GAVE

HER EVERY REASON TO LEAVE.

INSTEAD, SHE'LL TELL YOU

WHY THEY STAYED TOGETHER,

LATER ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

AFTER MORE THAN 85 YEARS

IN BUSINESS, FAMILY

CHRISTIAN STORES ARE

CLOSING THEIR DOORS.

FAMILY CHRISTIAN

EMEMPLOYED MORE THAN 3,000

PEOPLE IN MORE THAN 240

STORES ACROSS 36 STATES.

ACCORDING TO "CHRISTIANITY

TODAY," CHANGING CONSUMER

BEHAVIOR AND DECLINING

SALES ARE THE REASONS FOR

THE SHUTDOWN.

THE COMPANY WENT BANKRUPT

MORE THAN TWO YEARS AGO.

> "OPERATION BLESSING"

IS BRINGING WATER TO

PEOPLE WHO NEED IT IN THE

MOUNTAINS OF HONDURAS.

THE FAMILIES HAVE ALWAYS

STRUGGLED TO FIND SAFE

DRINKING WATER.

PESTICIDES GOT INTO THE

WATER, MAKING IT DANGEROUS

TO DRINK, AND MANY PEOPLE

OFTEN GREW SICK FROM IT.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

INSTALLED A 5,000 GALLON

WATER STORAGE TANK AND A

NETWORK OF PIPES THAT

CARRY WATER INTO EVERY

HOME IN THE VILLAGE.

NOW THESE FAMILIES CAN

DRINK WATER FREE FROM

CHEMICALS AND PESTICIDES

AND NOT GET SICK.

> YOU CAN LEARN MORE

ABOUT "OPERATION BLESSING"

BY GOING TO ITS WEBSITE,

ob.org.

GORDON AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: IF YOU'RE IN

THE BLACK HOLE OF DISPAIR

TODAY, IF YOU'RE THINKING

ABOUT DIVORCE AND

WONDERING IF IT IS WORTH

THE EFFORT TO EVEN STAY

MARRIED, HANG ON BECAUSE

YOU'RE ABOUT TO HEAR A

REMARKABLE STORY.

IT'S FROM A WIFE WHO HAD

EVERY REASON TO LEAVE.

Reporter: IN 1977,

VICKI MARRIED BILLY ROSE,

PART OWNER OF THE NEW YORK

YANKEES.

THEY DINED AT FINE

RESTAURANTS AND LOOKED

LIKE THEY HAD IT ALL.

BUT IN REALITY, THEIR

RELATIONSHIP WAS

CRUMBLING.

SO AT TIMES, I WAS

DOING UP TO FOUR GRAMS OF

COKE.

I WOULD DRINK UNBELIEVABLE

AMOUNTS OF VODKA.

MY WIFE WAS IN A TAIL

SPIN.

I WAS SO ANGRY AT

BILLY.

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY

HE WOULDN'T WANT TO BE

HOME WITH US.

Reporter: THEY

SEPARATED FOR FIVE YEARS

BEFORE BILLY MOVED BACK.

IN HER BOOK "EVERY REASON

TO LEAVE," VICKI SHARES

WHAT CHANGED THEIR LIVES

AND WHY THEY STAYED

MARRIED IN THE MIDST OF A

DIFFICULT RELATIONSHIP.

Wendy: AND PLEASE

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

VICKI ROSE.

NICE TO MEET YOU.

IT IS NICE TO BE HERE.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: YOU WERE 24

WHEN YOU MARRIED YOUR

HUSBAND, BILLY, VERY MUCH

IN LOVE?

YES.

Wendy: YOU EXPECTED

TO STAY THAT WAY.

WHAT HAPPENED?

LIFE TOOK OVER.

I HAD SO MANY HUGE

EXPECTATIONS, THAT HE

WOULD TAKE AWAY ALL OF MY

CHILDHOOD HURTS, THAT HE

WOULD BUY ME HAPPINESS,

AND HE WOULD FULFILL EVERY

NEED.

AND THAT DOESN'T WORK.

Wendy: BILLY STARTED

DRINKING.

HE WAS ABUSING DRUGS.

HE WAS SEEING OTHER WOMEN.

AND THIS WENT ON FOR 10

YEARS.

WHY DID YOU PUT UP WITH

IT?

I WASN'T AWARE OF IT.

AND IT POSSIBLY WASN'T

HAPPENING AT THE VERY

BEGINNING.

AND WE WENT ON TO HAVE

CHILDREN AND OPEN OUR

RESTAURANT.

OUR SECOND CHILD AND OUR

RESTAURANT OPENED AT THE

SAME TIME, AND THAT'S WHEN

THINGS WENT DOWNHILL FAST.

Wendy: HE FINALLY

MOVED OUT?

I ASKED HIM TO LEAVE.

I COULD NO LONGER DEAL

WITH THE CRAZINESS OF HIS

ADDICTION AND THE LATE

HOURS OF THE RESTAURANT,

AND HIS ADDICTIONS.

AND I WAS HOME MOTHERING

TWO CHILDREN.

Wendy: SO LIFE WASN'T

NECESSARILY BETTER BECAUSE

HE MOVED OUT?

IT WAS A RELIEF, BUT

THERE WAS A FEAR.

BACK THEN IT WAS 1986, I

NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE A

DIVORCED WOMAN, A SINGLE

MOM.

Wendy: WHAT KIND OF

RESTAURANT WERE YOU GUYS

RUNNING?

HE OPENED A SPORTS

RESTAURANT, IN THE AREA

CALLED TRIBECA, BEFORE IT

WAS REALLY UP AND RUNNING

AS AN AREA.

Wendy: VICKI, TELL US

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU AT A

BLACK-TIE DINNER THAT

CHANGED YOUR LIFE?

A YEAR AND A HALF AFTER

WE SEPARATED, I HAD JUST

COME BACK FROM A TRIP FROM

ASIA.

I WAS WORKING AT MACY'S AS

A CORPORATE BUYER.

AND THERE WAS A LETTER

THAT INVITED ME TO A

DINNER TO MEET AND HEAR A

SPEAKER TALK ABOUT

CHRISTIANITY IN THE WORLD

TODAY.

IN THE LOWER LEFT-HAND

CORNER IT SAID, BLACK TIE.

I THOUGHT, I'M A SINGLE

MOM, I'M GOING TO GET

DRESSED UP AND GO.

AND I HEARD A MESSAGE I

HAD NEVER HEARD, AND THAT

WAS GOD LOVED ME AND HAD A

PLAN FOR MY LIFE.

BUT THAT I WAS SEPARATED

FROM HIM BY WHAT THE BIBLE

CALLED SIN.

AND I COULD SIMPLY RECEIVE

JESUS AS LORD OF MY LIFE

AND ALL OF MY SINS WOULD

BE FORGIVEN.

Wendy: AT THIS SAME

TIME, WHEN YOU'RE MEETING

JESUS FOR THE FIRST TIME,

YOUR HUSBAND IS LIVING

WITH ANOTHER WOMAN.

YES.

Wendy: AND YOU'RE

STILL MARRIED?

YES.

Wendy: WHY DIDN'T YOU

DIVORCE HIM?

YOU HAD GROUNDS.

RIGHT AFTER I

ACCEPTEDED JESUS, I WENT

TO A SI SEMINAR CALLED

SINGLES AND CHRISTIANS.

AND I LEARNED THAT IN

GOD'S EYES, I WAS STILL

MARRIED.

I HAD LIVED THE FIRST 35

YEARS OF MY LIFE MY OWN

WAY.

I HAD MY PLANS.

I HAD EVERYTHING I HAD

HOPED FOR, AND I WAS

MISERABLE AND EMPTY.

AND SO I WANTED TO DO

THINGS GOD'S WAY.

Wendy: SO HOW DID

YOUR ATTITUDE START

CHANGING TO YOUR HUSBAND.

YOU HAD TO BE UPSET.

HE IS LIVING WITH OTHER

WOMAN.

BUT YOUR ATTITUDE STARTED

CHANGING.

IT WAS HAVE READING THE

BIBLE, AND READING GOD'S

WORD.

GOD HATES DIVORCE.

WHAT GOD HAS PUT TOGETHER,

LET NO MAN SEPARATE.

SO I WENT TO THAT

CHRISTIAN COUNSELLOR WHO

LED THE SEMINAR, AND HE

LED ME TO PASSAGES IN THE

BIBLE.

AND HE SAID YOU HAD EVERY

REASON TO DIVORCE.

BUT I DIDN'T FEEL AT PIECE PEACE

ABOUT IT.

I SAID UNTIL DEATH DO US

PART.

Wendy: SO HOW IN THE

WORLD DID YOU GUYS

RECONCILE?

IT WAS GOD ALL THE WAY.

A COUPLE MONTHS INTO

KNOWING JESUS, I STARTED

READING A BOOK TO MY

CHILDREN, WHO WERE THREE

AND FIVE AND A HALF, AND

IT SAID, WE NEED TO PRAY

FOR DADDY.

I THOUGHT, I'D RATHER KILL

HIM, BUT I DIDN'T SAY

THAT.

AND SO WE SAID A PRAYER

EVERY NIGHT.

THAT THEIR DADDY WOULD

COME TO KNOW JESUS.

I EVEN CALLED "700 CLUB."

I ASKED THEM TO PRAY FOR

BILL ROSE'S SALVATION.

AND WITHIN THREE YEARS'

TIME, MY HUSBAND ACCEPTED

CHRIST.

Wendy: YOU AND YOUR

CHILDREN PRAYED FOR YOUR

HUSBAND FOR THREE YEARS --

AND MANY, MANY OTHER

PEOPLE.

EVERYBODY THAT I KNEW THAT

KNEW HOW TO PRAY, PRAYED.

Wendy: YOU'VE BEEN

MARRIED FOR 40 YEARS NOW.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO PEOPLE,

THOUGH, THAT ARE READY TO

GIVE UP ON THEIR

MARRIAGES?

YOU KNOW, GOD HAS A

PLAN FOR MARRIAGE.

AND IT IS A LIFE-LONG

PLAN.

AND MY HUSBAND AND I ARE

REALLY ALMOST JUST NOW

COMING INTO THAT LIFE-LONG

LOVE, WHERE WE JUST HAVE A

FRIENDSHIP AND A RELIANCE

ON EACH OTHER THAT IS A

HEALTHY RELIANCE.

WE KNOW EACH OTHER BECAUSE

OF WHAT WE'VE WALKED

THROUGH, BECAUSE OF THE

AWFUL STUFF AND THE GOOD

STUFF AND THE HARD THINGS.

BECAUSE OF THAT, WE JUST

HAVE A BOND.

Wendy: DID YOU GUYS

RENEW YOUR VOWS?

OUR 40th ANNIVERSARY

WAS THREE WEEKS AGO

TOMORROW, AND WE HAD OUR

SIXTH GRANDCHILD THAT WAS

BORN THE DAY BEFORE OUR

40th ANNIVERSARY.

SO WE HAD TO POSTPONE OUR

VOW RENEWAL, AND SO WE DID

IT LAST SUNDAY.

IT WAS AN AMAZING TIME,

WITH OUR ENTIRE FAMILY

PRESENT.

Wendy: WHAT A

TESTIMONY.

A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD

DIVORCE, BUT YOU SAID YOU

DIDN'T HAVE PEACE ABOUT

DOING THAT AND YOU HELD ON

TO THAT.

I HELD ON BY HOLDING ON

TO GOD'S WORD.

THAT MOST IMPORTANT PIECE

IS THE BIBLE, HIS WORD.

IT GIVES STRENGTH AND

ENCOURAGEMENT, AND IT

POINTS ME IN THE DIRECTION

OF MY THOUGHTS, AND

TEACHES ME TO KEEP MY

FOCUS ON GOD AND NOT ON

EVERYTHING ELSE THAT IS

GOING ON AROUND ME.

Wendy: YOU'RE STORY

MAKES ME REALIZE THAT

ACCEPT, WITH GOD ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE, IS

REALLY TRUE.

IT IS.

MY STEPMOTHER PRAYED TO

RECEIVE CHRIST WHEN SHE

SAW MY HUSBAND COME TO

KNOW THE LORD.

SHE SAID, IF THAT COULD

HAPPEN, THAT'S WHAT I

WANT.

AND MANY OTHER PEOPLE AS

WELL.

Wendy: VICKI'S BOOK

IS CALLED "EVERY REASON TO

LEAVE," AND IT IS

AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS

ARE SOLD.

BUT SHE DIDN'T LEAVE.

YOU'VE GOT TO GET THIS.

VICKI, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Wendy: GORDON?

Gordon: STILL AHEAD,

DOCTORS TOLD HER SHE

NEEDED SURGERY FOR HER

BROKEN ARM.

AND IMMEDIATELY I STOOD

UP, AND I SAID, NO, I'M

NOT GOING TO NEED AN ELBOW

REPLACEMENT.

JESUS IS GOING TO HEAL ME.

Gordon: WATCH HOW HE

DID JUST THAT, COMING UP.

Gordon: CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK" IS TEACHING

THE STORIES OF THE BIBLE

TO CHILDREN ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

AND IN MYANMAR, IT ALSO

TAUGHT ONE 8-YEAR-OLD GIRL

HOW TO HANDLE BULLIES AT

SCHOOL.

Reporter: WHEN NO ONE

WAS LOOKING, VAL SOMETIMES

STOLE THINGS FROM HER

CLASSMATES.

SHE BELIEVED HER ACTIONS

WERE JUSTIFIED BECAUSE OF

THE WAY THEY TREATED HER.

I STOLE THINGS FROM

THEM BECAUSE THEY WERE

BULLYING ME.

Reporter: AT HOME,

VAL'S MOM NEEDED HELP WITH

THE FAMILY BUSINESS, BUT

THE 8-YEAR-OLD REFUSED TO

DO ANYTHING.

I FELT VERY UPSET AND

DISAPPOINTED WHEN SHE

REFUSED TO HELP ME.

Reporter: THEN ONE

DAY AT CHURCH, VAL WATCHED

A "SUPERBOOK" EPISODE

ABOUT THE 10

COMMANDMENTSMENT.

>COMMANDMENTS.

WHEN I WATCHED

"SUPERBOOK," I FOUND OUT

THAT STEALING IS

FORBIDDEN, SO I DECIDED I

WOULD NOT STEAL ANYMORE.

Reporter: AFTER

WATCHING THE EPISODE, VAL

TOLD HER SUNDAY SCHOOL

TEACHER SHE HAD BEEN

STEALING.

I ASKED JESUS TO BE MY

SAVIOR.

I PROMISEDE PROMISED NOT TO STEAL

ANYMORE.

Reporter: BACK AT

HOME, VAL ASKED HER MOM TO

FORGIVE HER, TOO.

SHE PROMISED SHE WOULD

LISTEN TO ME AND OBEY AND

CHANGE HER BEHAVIOR.

IT HAS BEEN AMAZING.

NOW SHE HELPS ME THE FIRST

TIME I ASK.

Reporter: VAL ALSO

SHARED THE GOSPEL WITH HER

CLASSMATES, INCLUDING THE

ONES WHO HAD BEEN BULLYING

HER.

I WANT THEM TO KNOW

HIM, TOO.

SOME OF THEM LISTEN AND

THEY GO TO SUNDAY SCHOOL

WITH ME.

THERE WE WATCH MORE

"SUPERBOOK" STORIES

TOGETHER.

Gordon: YOU CAN BE A

PART OF IT.

YOU CAN BE A PART OF

SHARING THE STORIES OF THE

BIBLE WITH THE CHILDREN OF

THE WORLD.

AND WHEN THEY HEAR THESE

STORIES, IT CHANGES THEIR

LIVES.

SOME OF THEM BECOME

EVISTS.

EVANGELISTS.

SOME WANT TO SHARE THESE

WONDERFUL STORIES, THE

WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP

THEY HAVE WITH JESUS, WITH

THEIR FRIENDS AND THEIR

FAMILIES.

THE BEAUTY OF IT IS

ANIMATION.

IT IS EASILY DUBBED INTO

WORLD.

Wendy: UP NEXT,

X-RAYS DON'T LIE.

SEE THE PROOF OF HOW ONE

WOMAN'S FRACTURED ARM WAS

HEALED WITHOUT SURGERY.

PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: IF YOU HEARD

LYNNE LUCAS SHOUTING FROM

A FEW BLOCKS AWAY, YOU

MIGHT HAVE THOUGHT SHE WAS

IN PAIN, BUT YOU'D BE

WRONG.

LYNNE WAS CELEBRATING HER

SUPER NATURAL RAL HEALING.

HEALING.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: ON EASTER

SUNDAY, 2014, LYNNE FELL

WHILE STEPPING OUT OF HER

TRUCK.

I ENDED UP BRACING MY

FALL WITH THE ARM, AND

PROCEEDED TO FALL DIRECTLY

ON THE BLACKTOP.

Reporter: X-RAYS

SHOWED LYNNE HAD MINOR

FRACTURES IN HER WRISTS,

ELBOW, AND FOREARM.

REQUIRING HER TO WEAR A

SPLINT AND SLING FOR SIX

TO EIGHT WEEKS.

THAT WAS HARD ENOUGH.

BEING A RIGHT-HANDED

INDIVIDUAL, ALL OF THE

THINGS I TOOK FOR GRANTED,

I DEFINITELY DID NOT TAKE

FOR GRANTED ANYMORE.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT,

A FEW WEEKS LATER, LYNNE

STEPPED IN A HOLE IN HER

YARD AND TRIPPED, LANDING

ON HER INJURED ARM.

I KNEW I HAD DONE MORE.

IT WAS, I THINK, SNAPPED.

Reporter: AFTERWARDS

SHE SAW ORTHOPEDIC

SPECIALIST MICHAEL WILSON.

AND THIS IS THE RADIUS

BONE, WHICH SHE HAD

FRACTURED.

SHE HAD BROKEN IT RIGHT

THROUGH HERE.

EVERY TIME YOU MOVE YOUR

ARM, THAT BONE ROTATES,

AND THAT CAUSES A GREAT

DEAL OF DISCOMFORT.

Reporter: LYNNE HAD

TO WEAR A METAL BRACE THAT

RESTRICTED HER ARM.

NOT ONLY DID SHE HAVE TO

GET HER DAUGHTER TAYLOR TO

HELP AROUND THE HOUSE, BUT

SHE COULDN'T DO WHAT SHE

REALLY WANTED.

I HAD A GRANDSON FIVE

MONTHS OLD AT THAT POINT.

AND I WAS NOT ABLE TO HOLD

HIM.

AND THAT WAS REALLY TOUGH.

Reporter: LYNNE WENT

FOR A FOLLOWUP.

BY NOW IT HAD BEEN THREE

MONTHS SINCE SHE FIRST

FELL.

THE NEWS WAS NOT GOOD.

MOST TIMES WHEN YOU SEE

THIS BONE NOT HEALED AT

THREE MONTHS, IT'S NOT

GOING TO HEAL.

THAT'S KIND OF WHERE SHE

WAS AT.

SO WE HAD THE DISCUSSIONS

OF DOING FURTHER

TREATMENT, SUCH AS

SURGERY, AND REPLACEMENT

OF THAT BONE, BECAUSE I

DID NOT THINK IT WAS GOING

TO HEAL.

Reporter: BUT LYNNE

FELT DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE

SHE ALWAYS BELIEVED GOD

WOULD HEAL HER.

I PRAYED TO HIM FROM

THE BEGINNING THAT IT

WOULD BE HEALED.

NEVER DOUBTING THAT IT

WOULD.

AND IMMEDIATELY I STOOD UP

AND I SAID, NO, I'M NOT

GOING TO NEED AN ELBOW

REPLACEMENT.

JESUS IS GOING TO HEAL ME.

Reporter: AT HER

DOCTOR'S RECOMMENDATION,

SHE AGREED TO MEET WITH A

SURGEON.

AND THEN A WEEK BEFORE THE

APPOINTMENT, LYNNE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

Gordon: HAVE FAITH IN

GOD.

SITTING THERE WITH THAT

BRACE ON, ALL OF A SUDDEN

GORDON ROBERTSON STARTED

WITH A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU HAVE A VERY

PAINFUL RIGHT ELBOW.

YOU'VE HAD A FALL.

GOD IS HEALING YOU.

EVERYTHING IS WEEK BEING

RESTORED RIGHT NOW.

BEGIN TO DO WHAT YOU

COULDN'T DO BEFORE.

BEGIN TO MOVE IT AND

REALIZE YOU HAVE NO MORE

PAIN.

YOU COULD HEAR ME

PROBABLY THREE BLOCKS

AWAY.

I'M PRAISING MY SAVIOR AND

SHOUTING, WOW, I KNEW IT!

AND I JUST TOOK THAT THING

OFF.

I JUST TOOK IT OFF.

BOOM, IT WAS DONE.

Reporter: LYNNE KEPT

THE APPOINTMENT WITH THE

SURGEON, BUT AS MICHAEL

EXPLAINS, THERE WAS NO

NEED FOR SURGERY.

THIS IS ONE MONTH AFTER

THE INITIAL INJURY.

AND THEN THREE MONTHS FROM

THIS TIME, THIS X-RAY

DEMONSTRATES A COMPLETE

HEALING.

AND YOU CAN SEE THE

FRACTURE HERE AND THE

DISPLACEMENT OF THE BONE.

THIS BONE SHOULD BE IN THE

CENTER.

AND THEN THREE MONTHS

LATER, YOU SEE THAT THE

BONE HAS ESSENTIALLY FULLY

HEALED AND IT HAS GONE

BACK TO ANATOMICAL

ALIGNMENT.

SHE WENT FROM THIS TO THIS

FOUR MONTHS AFTER SHE

INITIALLY BROKE IT, WITH

NO SURGERY.

Reporter: LYNNE HAS

HAD NO PROBLEMS SINCE.

AND SHE IS ABLE TO DO

EVERYTHING SHE COULD DO

BEFORE THE INJURY,

INCLUDING PLAYING WITH HER

GRANDSON.

TO KEEP UP WITH HIM, TO

RUN WITH HIM, TO KNOW I

CAN LIFT HIM AND THERE IS

NO DISCOMFORT, TO BE

SECURE IN THE FACT THAT HE

IS SAFE IN MY ARMS IS

ABSOLUTELY THE ICING ON

THE CAKE TO ALL OF THIS.

Reporter: LYNNE GIVES

ALL OF THE CREDIT FOR HER

HEALING TO GOD.

NO MATTER WHAT YOU

FACE, WHETHER IT BE

FINANCIAL OR PHYSICAL OR

PERSONAL, THERE IS NOTHING

HE CAN'T HANDLE.

Wendy: THERE IS

NOTHING GOD CAN'T HANDLE,

NO MATTER WHAT YOU'RE

GOING THROUGH.

NO MATTER IF YOU HAVE A

BROKEN BONE, IF YOU HAVE

AN ILLNESS, THE BIBLE SAYS

GOD HEALS.

HE HEALED YESTERDAY; HE

HEALS TODAY.

AND HE WANTS TO HEAL YOU.

Gordon: WE HAVE DORIS

FROM FORT WORTH, TEXAS,

AND SHE WAS FULL OF

ANXIETY OVER HER PROBLEMS.

HE IS A SENIOR ADULT,

SUFFERING WITH MANY HEALTH

ISSUES.

HER DAUGHTER IS IN A

MENTAL HOSPITAL AND MAY

HAVE TO BE ADMITTED TO A

NURSING HOME.

WHILE SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," WENDY, YOU

SAID, THERE IS SOMEONE,

YOU JUST WANT TO HEAR THE

LORD SAY, IT'S GOING TO BE

OKAY.

AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT

THE LORD IS SAYING TO YOU

RIGHT NOW.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

OKAY.

IT'S GOING TO BE FINE.

JUST ENJOY MY PEACE.

I AM WITH YOU.

WELL, DORIS KNEW THE WORD

WAS FOR HER.

GOD POINTED OUT SCRIPTURE

TO GO ALONG WITH THE

ENCOURAGEMENT, AND HE

DELIVERED HER FAMILY IN A

MIRACULOUS WAY.

SHE IS PRAISINGE PRAISING GOD.

Wendy: MICHELLE FROM

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA,

SUFFERED FROM A SHOULDER

DISABILITY FOR OVER 10

YEARS.

WHEN SHE DID MOVE HER

RIGHT SHOULDER, SHE HAD

PAIN.

LAST MONTH MICHELLE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND SHE HEARD YOU GIVE A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE, GORDON,

ABOUT A HEALING IN THE

SPINE.

MICHELLE KEPT REPEATING,

MENTION THE RIGHT

SHOULDER.

AND THEN GORDON SAID,

SOMEONE ELSE WITH A RIGHT

SHOULDER, THERE IS DEEP

PAIN IN THE SOCKET WITH AN

INABILITY TO MOVE YOUR

RIGHT ARM.

JUST TAKE IT OUT AND START

MOVING IT AND REALIZE

YOU'VE BEEN RELEASED.

THAT PAIN IS GONE NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

MICHELLE WAS THRILLED AS

SHE RECEIVED IMMEDIATE

HEALING IN HER SHOULDER

AND SHE IS STILL PRAISING

GOD.

Gordon: I AM, TOO.

BECAUSE GOD, JESUS, HE IS

THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY,

AND FOREVER.

AND HE TAUGHT US THE KEY

TO MIRACLES.

YOU FIND IT IN THE GOSPEL

OF MARK, IN THE 11th

CHAPTER.

AND IT'S VERY SIMPLE: HAVE

FAITH IN GOD.

THAT'S IT.

HAVE FAITH IN GOD.

SO OFTEN WE WANT TO ADD A

WHOLE LOT TO THAT, DON'T

WE?

WE WANT TO SAY, IS THERE A

SPECIAL PRAYER OR IS THERE

A SPECIAL PLACE OR IS

THERE A SPECIAL ANOINTING?

ALL OF THESE OTHER THINGS

WE WANT TO ADD TO IT.

YOU DON'T NEED TO.

JUST HAVE FAITH IN GOD.

LOOK TO HIM BECAUSE HE IS

THE AUTHOR AND THE

FINISHER OF YOUR FAITH.

AND WHEN YOU START

UNDERSTANDING FAITH IS A

GIFT THAT HAS BEEN GIVEN

TO YOU, YOU ALREADY HAVE

IT, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

LOOK TO THE ONE WHO BEGAN

ALL OF THAT, THE AUTHOR --

AND I LOVE THIS PART --

THE FINISHER -- SO IF HE

HAS GIVEN YOU A START,

HE'S GOING TO GIVE YOU A

GOOD FINISH.

AND JUST REST IN THAT.

IT IS NOT SOMETHING YOU

ADD TO THE IT.

IN FACT, THE MORE YOU ADD

TO IT, THE MORE YOU SAY

THE CROSS WAS NOT ENOUGH.

THE BIBLE IS REAL CLEAR:

BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE THAT.

TRUST THAT.

TRUST THAT.

YOU CAN TRUST THE

UNCHANGING CHRIST.

HE DOESN'T CHANGE.

HE IS THE SAME YESTERDAY,

TODAY, AND FOREVER.

SO DON'T BE ANXIOUS ABOUT

IT.

BUT JUST LIKE LITTLE

CHILDREN, WHEN YOUR DADDY

PROMISES, HE IS GOING TO

FULFILL.

SO JUST BE LIKE A LITTLE

CHILD.

WE'RE GOING TO COME TO

HIM.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

AND JUST REALIZE HE IS

GOING TO ANSWER.

HE IS GOING TO SHOW UP FOR

YOU.

BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED, WE WERE HEALED.

ALL THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE

IS ALREADY DONE.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS REST

IN IT.

LET'S PRAY AND LET'S

BELIEVE AND LET'S HAVE

FAITH IN GOD.

PRAY WITH US.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THE

NEEDS OF THE AUDIENCE TO

YOU, AND WE PRAISE YOU.

Wendy: THANK YOU,

JESUS.

Gordon: FOR YOU ARE

THE UNCHANGING ONE.

WE MOVE ALL AROUND.

WE HAVE DOUBTS.

WE HAVE BAD DAYS, GOOD

DAYS, AND IN BETWEEN DAYS.

YOU DON'T CHANGE.

WHEN YOU SAID IT WAS

FINISHED ON THE CROSS,

IT'S FINISHED.

IT'S SETTLED.

ALL THE DEBT HAS BEEN

PAID.

AND WE RECEIVE IT NOW.

WE RECEIVE YOUR GRACE,

YOUR MERCY, YOUR HEALING,

YOUR SALVATION.

WE RECEIVE IT NOW.

AND WE'RE NOT ANXIOUS FOR

ANYTHING BECAUSE WE KNOW

THAT YOU'VE ALREADY TAKEN

CARE OF IT.

OUR FUTURE, OUR PRESENT,

OUR PAST ARE ALL TAKEN

CARE OF BY YOU.

SO, LORD, WE REST IN YOU.

WE RELY ON YOU.

SO STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND

TO DO MIGHTY MIRACLES

TODAY.

LET THERE BE PEACE IN YOUR

PEOPLE.

LET THERE BE HEALING IN

YOUR PEOPLE.

DELIVERANCE, FORGIVENESS

NOW IN JESUS' MIGHTY NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'RE

FEELING HEART PAIN RIGHT

NOW.

AND GOD JUST TOOK ALL OF

THAT AWAY.

HEART PAIN, HEART

ARRHYTHMIA, IT IS ALL

BEING LIFTED OFF OF YOU

RIGHT NOW.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

YOU'RE NO LONGER GOING TO

HAVE ANGINA.

HE HAS SET YOU FREE FROM

ALL OF THAT.

DON'T LIVE IN FEAR OF THAT

BECAUSE GOD HAS SET YOU

FREE FROM IT.

Wendy: THERE IS A

LADY, YOU'RE IN A HOSPITAL

ROOM AND YOU'RE WATCHING

US FROM A HOSPITAL BED.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS WRONG

WITH YOU, BUT GOD IS

TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOW.

AND THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU

WANT TO BE HEALED, BUT YOU

THINK YOU DESERVE IT, BUT

GOD HEALS EVERYTHING.

YOU ARE HEALED AND JUST

RECEIVE IT.

Gordon: GLORIA IS

PRAYING FOR SOMEONE WITH A

BRAINSTEM INJURY.

HE HAS HEARD YOUR CRY AND

RECEIVE IT NOW.

BE RAISED UP FROM THE DEAD

IN JESUS' NAME.

LET THERE BE LIFE IN YOUR

BRAIN.

WE RECEIVE IT NOW.

AMEN AND AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN HEALED,

SHARE YOUR REPORT.

LORD WAS PRESENT TO HEAL

THEM."
