Take a look inside a former Soviet Bloc state where a small group of Christians are beginning to bloom. Plus, a two-time World Series champion who used “uppers” to get to the top. Learn Aubrey Huff’s darkest secret on today’s 700 Club. Read Transcript


Wendy: INSIDE A

FORMER SOVIET-BLOCKED

STATE.

NOW THEY HAVE THE HOLY

SCRIPTURES IN THEIR HANDS.

Wendy: THEN...A

TWO-TIME WORLD SERIES

CHAMP.

I HAD EVERYTHING YOU

COULD EVER WANT, BUT I WAS

STILL MISERABLE.

Wendy: HE USED UPPERS

TO GET TO THE TOP.

IT WAS IN THAT MOMENT I

KNEW I WOULD NEVER PLAY

BASEBALL WITHOUT THIS

STUFF.

IT MADE ME A DR. JECKELL

AND MR. HYDE.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS.

WE'RE GLAD TO WELCOME OUR

DEAR FRIEND TERRY MEEUWSEN

BACK.

TODAY IS HER 39th

BIRTHDAY.

Terry: AGAIN.

Pat: HAPPY BIRTHDAY,

TERRY.

Terry: THANK YOU.

YOU ARE THE BEST BOSS IN

THE WORLD.

YOU'RE SO THOUGHTFUL.

THANK YOU.

Pat: HOW ARE YOU,

DARLING?

Terry: I'M WELL.

I HAD SOME NECESSARY

SURGERY, AND I'M BACK.

Pat: THIS LADY IN HOT

SPRINGS SAID LONDON BRIDGE

HAS FALLEN AND THEY'VE

BUILT IT BACK UP.

NOW THAT YOUR A

30-YEAR-OLD, READY TO GO

FOR ANOTHER 30 YEARS OR

SO.

Terry: THANK YOU.

PAT.

THESE ARE BEAUTIFUL.

Pat: WELL, HAPPY

BIRTHDAY AND WELCOME BACK.

Terry: THANK YOU.

IT IS GREAT TO BE WITH YOU

AGAIN.

Pat: GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: THANK YOU.

Pat: FOLKS, THE

DEMOCRATS -- THE NEW YORK

TIMES IS OBSESSED WITH THE

FACT THAT THERE HAD TO BE

SPIES GOING ON, WORKING

WITH THE REPUBLICANS.

TRUMP COULDN'T POSSIBLY

HAVE WON WITHOUT RUSSIAN

INTERFERENCE.

IT IS ALL NONSENSE, AND

THEY DON'T HAVE ANY

EVIDENCE, BUT THEY KEEP

WRITING THESE STORIES.

AND SO NOW DEMOCRATS ARE

SAYING, WELL, WE'VE GOT TO

HAVE A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR,

AND THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL

HAS TO GET OUT OF THIS.

HE HAS TO RECUSE HIMSELF.

WELL, I WANT TO SAY THIS

VERY CLEARLY, AND I HOPE

MY REPUBLICAN FRIENDS WILL

HEAR IT: DO NOT, UNDER ANY

CIRCUMSTANCES, THINK ABOUT

APPOINTING A SPECIAL

PROSECUTOR.

ALL YOU'RE DOING IS GIVING

A HUNTING LICENSE TO SOME

GUY WHO WILL STAY AND OPEN

AN OFFICE AND DRAW A BIG

SALARY AND HAVE A BIG

STAFF, AND THEY'LL DO

EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO

HURT YOU.

SO DON'T LISTEN TO THE

SIREN CALL OF THE "NEW

YORK TIMES".

THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIEND.

OKAY?

> NOW, SECONDLY, YOU

REMEMBER CALIFORNIA USED

TO HAVE THIS TERRIBLE

DROUGHT?

IT WAS ALL PARCHED AND SO

FORTH.

NOW THEY HAVE SO MUCH

SNOW -- GET THIS, THERE IS

SO MUCH SNOW THEY CAN'T

MEASURE IT.

IT IS 185% ABOVE NORMAL.

THAT'S THE MOST IN NEARLY

A QUARTER OF A CENTURY.

NOW --

Terry: WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN THAT STARTS TO MELT?

Pat: WELL, IT RUNS

AND FLOODS AND YOU HAVE

LIKE A DAM GETTING READY

TO BURST.

YOU KNOW, WHEN GOVERNOR

MOONBEAM'S FATHER WAS

GOVERNOR -- JERRY BROWN'S

FATHER -- HE BUILT

RESERVOIRS.

SO THE SON COMES ALONG AND

SAYS, WE CAN'T AFFORD TO

MAINTAIN THE RESERVOIRS.

SO THEY'VE ALL GONE INTO

DECLINE.

NOW THEY NEED THE

RESERVOIRS VERY BADLY

BECAUSE THEY'RE GOING TO

HAVE A HUGE AMOUNT OF

WATER.

WHEN THIS STUFF STARTS TO

MELT, THE WATER IS GOING

TO COME CASCADING DOWN THE

MOUNTAINS AND, OF COURSE,

IT WILL FLOOD EVERYTHING.

Terry: FEAST OR

FAMINE.

Pat: FEAST OR FAMINE.

IT IS SO NICE TO SEE YOU.

Terry: IT'S GREAT TO

BE BACK.

I FEEL TERRIFIC, I REALLY

DO.

Pat: TELL ME HOW IT

IS TO BE 39.

YOU'RE SUCH A YOUNG CHILD.

Terry: WE'RE BOTH 39

AGAIN, FOR HOWEVER MANY

YEARS.

> WELL, MOST OF YOU, I'M

SURE, SAW THE SPEECH THE

OTHER EVENING OF OUR

PRESIDENT, AFTER HIS

HIGHLY ACCLAIMED SPEECH

BEFORE CONGRESS.

AND PRESIDENT TRUMP AND

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ARE

GETTING BACK TO BUSINESS.

GARY LANE GIVES US THIS

LOOK.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT WAS ALREADY

WORKING ON HIS AGENDA JUST

HOURS AFTER HIS FIRST

SPEAK TO A JOINT SESSION

OF CONGRESS.

MEETING WITH REPUBLICAN

LEADERS AT THE WHITE

HOUSE, WHERE THEY

STRATEGIZED ON THEIR

LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES.

President Trump:

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WE'RE JUST HERE TO START

THE PROCESS.

IT BEGINS AS OF NOW.

Reporter: THEIR TOP

GOALS: WORKING ON

REPEALING AND REPLACING

OBAMACARE AND CUTTING

TAXES.

AND WALL STREET LIKES WHAT

IT IS HEARING.

THE DOW SURGED TO MORE

THAN 300 POINTS, TO

ANOTHER RECORD HIGH, GOING

OVER 21,000 FOR THE FIRST

TIME.

HE NOW OWNS THIS

ECONOMY.

HE OWNS THE PRESIDENCY.

THAT SPEECH PUT HIM OVER

THE TOP.

Reporter: THE STOCK

MARKET HAS JUMPED WELL

OVER 15% SINCE THE

NOVEMBER ELECTION.

AND INVESTORS EXPECT IT TO

KEEP GOING HIGHER.

IT IS, LIKE, 60/40.

60, TRUMP SINCE THE

ELECTION.

40, JOBS NUMBERS, WHICH

HAVE BEEN A LITTLE

STRONGER.

OVER ALL, THINGS ARE

GETTING BETTER.

Reporter: TRUMP HAS

SOME OTHER PLANS, TOO, TO

BOOST THE AMERICAN

ECONOMY.

HE WANTS TO INVEST A

TRILLION DOLLARS TO

IMPROVE THE NATION'S

INFRASTRUCTURE, LIKE ROADS

AND BRIDGES.

AND $54 BILLION MORE ON

DEFENSE.

BUT SPENDING SO MUCH MORE

MONEY HAS SOME

CONSERVATIVES CONCERNED.

THEY'RE WONDERING WHERE

THE MONEY IS COMING FROM.

BUT THE PRESIDENT BELIEVES

HE'LL COVER THE COSTS BY

CREATING THE RIGHT

CONDITIONS FOR THE ECONOMY

TO START GROWING AT A

FASTER RATE.

THAT MEANS MORE EARNINGS

FOR BUSINESSES AND HIGHER

INCOMES FOR INDIVIDUALS,

AND MORE MONEY IN TAXES

GOING TO WASHINGTON.

SINCE 1947, THE ECONOMY

HAS GROWN ON AVERAGE A

LITTLE OVER 3% A YEAR.

UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA, IT

ONLY GREW AT 2% A YEAR.

AND PRESIDENT OBAMA BECAME

THE FIRST PRESIDENT IN

MODERN HISTORY TO NOT HAVE

EVEN A SINGLE YEAR OF 3%

GROWTH.

PRESIDENT TRUMP BELIEVES

HE CAN TURN THAT AROUND,

AND TAX CUTS FOR

BUSINESSES AND CONSUMERS

IS A KEY PART OF THE PLAN.

YOU KNOW, YOU GET TAX

CUTS, AND PEOPLE GET MORE

MONEY IN THEIR POCKET,

MORE DISCRETIONARY MONEY

AND THEY GO OUT AND SPEND

IT.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE WANTS TO GET

OBAMACARE AND TAX REFORM

DONE BY THE END OF THIS

YEAR.

BUT POLITICAL ANALYSTS

REMAIN SKEPTICAL.

BUT BEFORE ANYTHIN ANY OF THIS CAN

HAPPEN, DONALD TRUMP MUST

WORK A DEAL WITH MEMBERS

OF CONGRESS BEFORE HE CAN

GET HIS AMBITIOUS AGENDA

ACCOMPLISHED BY THE END OF

2017.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, GARY.

STEVE MOORE, OUR DEAR

FRIEND, IS WITH US.

HE IS A BRILLIANT ANALYST

OF WHAT IS GOING ON WITH

THE ECONOMY.

3%, THAT'S STANDARD.

REAGAN HAD 4%.

CAN WE HIT ANY OF THOSE

TARGETS, DO YOU THINK?

HI, PAT.

BY THE WAY, HAPPY

BIRTHDAY, TERRY.

I JUST HAD MY 39th

BIRTHDAY, TOO.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING

ON.

> SO, LOOK, THIS IS CHEE

IECONOMY IS NOT WHERE IT

SHOULD BE.

THE GROWTH RATE HAS BEEN

TOO LOW FOR TOO LONG.

THE AVERAGE AMERICAN IN

THIS COUNTRY IN THE PAST

15 YEARS HAS NOT HAD A PAY

RAISE THAT HAS KEPT UP

WITH INFLATION.

THERE ARE PROBLEMS THAT

NEED TO BE ADDRESSED TOR FOR

AVERAGE, MIDDLE-CLASS

PEOPLE.

THIS TAX CUT IS ESSENTIAL

TO THAT.

THE STOCK MARKET HAS DONE

REALLY WELL, HASN'T IT

PAT, SINCE THE ELECTION?

IT IS UP BY 14% OR 15%.

WE JUST HAD A 300-POINT

RISE YESTERDAY IN THE WAKE

OF THAT TREMENDOUS SPEECH

BY THE PRESIDENT.

NOW HE HAS TO TRANSLATE,

PAT, THAT SPEECH AND THE

ACTION ITEMS INTO REAL

ACTION, GETTING THEM

THROUGH CONGRESS.

THAT IS NOT GOING TO BE

EASY.

DEMOCRATS DO NOT SEEM TO

BE IN A VERY COOPERATIVE

MOOD RIGHT NOW.

Pat: YOU KNOW, STEVE,

REAGAN TOOK OVER AND HE

DIDN'T HAVE A CONGRESS OF

HIS PARTY.

HE WAS DEALING WITH A

DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS.

WE'VE GOT A REPUBLICAN

CONGRESS.

YUP.

Pat: IS THERE ANY

REASON WHY THESE GUYS

DON'T GO ALONG WITH THE

TRUMP AGENDA AND PUT THE

ACCELERATOR DOWN ON THE

ECONOMY?

YOU KNOW, THE THING

THAT HAS REALLY CHANGED IN

MY LIFE, PAT, YOU GO BACK

TO THE EARLY 1980s, AND

BACK THEN THE HOUSE WAS

RUN BY DEMOCRATS.

REMEMBER TIP O'NEILL WAS

THE SPEAKER BACK THEN.

WHAT WAS DIFFERENT THEN

FROM NOW IS YOU HAD

MODERATE DEMOCRATS.

RIGHT NOW IF I LOOK AT THE

DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS

RIGHT NOW, I CAN'T POINT

TO TWO OR THREE DEMOCRATS

WHO MIGHT EVEN BE SOMEWHAT

HELPFUL IN TERMS OF TRYING

TO GET THIS TRUMP AGENDA

THROUGH.

MAYBE MR. MANSION IN WEST

VIRGINIA, BUT YOU REALLY

DON'T SEE MANY OTHERS.

THAT MEANS PEOPLE LIKE

PAUL RYAN AND OTHERS IN

THE CONGRESS ARE GOING TO

HAVE TO GET THIS DONE

MOSTLY WITH ONLY

REPUBLICAN VOTES.

THEY HAVE TO TWO THINGS:

THEY HAVE TO GET OBAMACARE

FIXED AND THEY HAVE TO GET

THIS TAX CUT PASSED.

I BELIEVE -- AND YOU ASKED

THIS QUESTION, CAN WE GET

FASTER GROWTH?

I BELIEVE THE ANSWER IS

YES, IF WE GET THIS

BUSINESS TAX CUT DONE.

AND WE REDUCE OUR TAXES ON

THE BUSINESSES FROM THE

HIGHEST IN THE WORLD.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THE LAND

OF THE FREE, THE UNITED

STATES, HAS THE HIGHEST

BUSINESS TAXES IN THE

WORLD?

HOW COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE IS

THAT.

IF WE BRING THOSE DOWN TO

15% TO 20% FROM 40%, I

GUARANTEE YOU IT IS GOING

TO BE LIKE A MAGNET.

AND THOSE BUSINESSES AND

JOBS THAT HAVE LEFT THE

UNITED STATES, THEY ARE

COMING BACK.

I TALKED TO A LOT OF

BUSINESS WOMEN AND THEY

SAID, IF YOU GET THOSE

REGULATIONS OFF OUR BACKS

AND THOSE TAX DOWN, WE'RE

GOING TO START PRODUCING

THINGS IN AMERICA AGAIN.

Pat: WHAT IS THE

DEMOCRATIC GAME PLAN?

IT USED TO BE THEY WERE

PLAYING TO THE UNIONS, AND

THE UNIONS WANTED JOBS.

LIKE THE KEYSTONE X.L.

PIPELINE, THEY WANTED

THOSE JOBS.

BUT, OH, NO.

WHO IS THE GROUP THAT THE

DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS ARE

PLAYING TO?

WHAT IS IT THAT IS THEIR

GAME?

THAT'S A GREAT POINT.

ONE OF THE MAJOR KIND OF

POLITICAL SHIFTS THAT

HAPPENED IN THIS ELECTION,

WITH SO MANY WORKING CLASS

UNION DEMOCRATS, WHO

CROSSED OVER, AND THEY

VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP,

JUST AS WE SAW IN 1980

WHEN, REMEMBER, PAT, THE

REAGAN DEMOCRATS, WHO

VOTED FOR RONALD REAGAN

BECAUSE THEY SAW HIM AS

BETTER FOR THE ECONOMY AND

JOBS.

I'M SO DISAPPOINTED WITH

THE DEMOCRATS RIGHT NOW.

THEY'RE NOT BEING AT ALL

COOPERATIVE.

IN A LOT OF WAYS -- WHEN

YOU ASKED WHAT WORDS TO

DESCRIBE THE DEMOCRATS

TODAY, IT IS

OBSTRUCTIONISM.

THEY DON'T WANT DONALD

TRUMP TO SUCCEED.

THEY'RE ROOTING AGAINST

THE AMERICAN ECONOMY.

THEY HATE TO SEE THE STOCK

MARKET RISE BECAUSE THEY

DON'T WANT THIS PRESIDENT

TO BE A SUCCESS.

I DID NOT AGREE WITH MOST

OF THE THINGS BARACK OBAMA

DID, BUT I DID NOT ROOT

AGAINST AMERICA.

I DID NOT ROOT AGAINST THE

ECONOMY.

I THINK THAT'S WHAT IS

HAPPENING RIGHT NOW.

I WISH I COULD SAY THERE

WOULD BE COOPERATIVE

DEMOCRATS.

I DON'T THINK THERE WILL

BE.

THAT MAKES IT VERY

DIFFICULT TO GET THESE

THINGS DONE.

AS YOU KNOW, THERE ARE

ONLY 52 REPUBLICANS IN THE

SENATE.

THAT MEANS THERE IS NOT A

LOT OF ROOM FOR ERROR

HERE, IN TERMS OF GETTING

THIS AMBITIOUS AGENDA

THROUGH.

I MET WITH PAUL RYAN LAST

NIGHT, HE IS A DEAR FRIEND

OF MINE, AND HE IS

CONVINCED WE CAN GET THIS

DONE IN THE NEXT THREE,

FOUR, FIVE, SIX MONTHS.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO SEE A

RADICAL CHANGE IN THE

DIRECTION OF THE ECONOMY

WHEN THAT HAPPENS.

Pat: THIS IS A LITTLE

MORE PAINFUL QUESTION FOR

YOU, BUT YOU REPRESENTED

THE SO CALL SUPPLY SIDERS,

AND IT LOOKS LIKE COHEN

AND THE GUYS FROM THE

INVESTMENT BANKS ARE

TAKING OVER THE TRUMP

AGENDA.

WHAT HAPPENED?

WELL, THAT'S A TOUGH

ONE.

LET'S GIVE THESE GUYS A

CHANCE AND SEE HOW THEY

CAN PERFORM.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG

WITH GETTING EXPERTS WHO

KNOW HOW THE ECONOMY

WORKS, WHO KNOW HOW THE

PRIVATE SECTOR WORKS.

I THINK ONE OF THE

PROBLEMS WITH BARACK

OBAMA, IF YOU GO BACK TO

HIS PRESIDENCY, THERE WAS

ALMOST ZERO PEOPLE IN THAT

WHITE HOUSE WHO KNEW

ANYTHING ABOUT HOW

BUSINESS WORKS, PAT.

THEY DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO

MEET A PAYROLL.

THEY DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO

CONTROL EXPENDITURES.

THE OTHER THING THAT I

THINK DONALD TRUMP HAS TO

DO IF HE IS GOING TO BE

SUCCESSFUL IS ROOTING OUT

THIS WASTE AND

INEFFICIENCY IN OUR

GOVERNMENT TODAY.

IT IS RAMPANT, PAT.

THERE WAS A REPORT THAT

CAME OUT A FEW MONTHS AGO,

$160 BILLION -- NOT

MILLION -- $160 BILLION A

YEAR IN FRAUDULENT

PAYMENTS UNDER MEDICARE,

SOCIAL SECURITY, FOOD

STAMPS, AND THESE OTHER

PROGRAMS.

CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT?

$160 BILLION OF WASTE FULL

SPENDING, AND NOBODY IN

WASHINGTON DOES ANYTHING

ABOUT IT?

THOSE ARE THE KINDS OF

THINGS -- THAT'S THE FRAUD

AND WASTE THAT NEEDS TO BE

ROOTED OUT OF OUR

GOVERNMENT.

THIS IDEA THAT WE CAN'T

CUT THE SIZE OF GOVERNMENT

IS CRAZY.

WE CAN DO IT.

WE CAN DELIVER BETTER

GOVERNMENT AT 30% TO 40%

LESS COST.

AND I THINK MOST AMERICANS

AGREE WITH THAT.

Pat: IT IS LIKE

SCHUMER STANDING AT THE

SCHOOLHOUSE DOOR KEEPING

THE LITTLE BLACK KID FROM

COMING TO SCHOOL.

HE IS STANDING -- I WILL

DEFEND WASTE AND FRAUD IN

THE GOVERNMENT, AND HE

WILL NOT TAKE IT AWAY FROM

US.

THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE

SAYING.

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT,

STEVE.

I'M SORRY.

LOOK, WHEN YOU WASTE A

DOLLAR, THAT'S A DOLLAR

THAT CAN'T GO FOR BETTER

SCHOOLS AND BETTE BETTER ROADS

AND BETTER HIGHWAYS.

YOU GET THOSE TAXES DOWN

AND YOU BRING THOSE

BUSINESSES BACK -- I'M

GOING TO MAKE THIS

STATEMENT ON YOUR SHOW --

AND A YEAR OR TWO FROM NOW

WE CAN SEE IF I'M RIGHT --

I BELIEVE, PAT, IF WE CAN

GET THESE TAX RATES DOWN

ON OUR BUSINESSES -- THE

NOT JUST OUR BIG

BUSINESSES, BUT OUR

26.5 MILLION SMALL

BUSINESSES -- WE GET THOSE

RATES DOWN AND I THINK

YOU'LL SEE AN EXPLOSION OF

TAX REVENUES COMING INTO

THE GOVERNMENT AS MORE

PEOPLE ARE WORKING.

THERE IS A GREAT BOOK I

WANT TO RECOMMEND BY MY

BUDDY CALLED "J.F.K. AND

THE REAGAN REVOLUTION,"

AND IT TOQU TALKS ABOUT WHEN

THEY CUT TAXES, WE HAD TWO

OF THE BIGGEST ECONOMIC

BOOMS IN OUR HISTORY.

WOULDN'T IT BE NICE TO SEE

THAT AGAIN.

Pat: WELL, WE'LL RIDE

IT HIGH.

I HAVEN'T BEEN THIS

BULLISH, PAT, PROBABLY

SINCE REAGAN WAS

PRESIDENT.

Pat: THANK YOU,

BUDDY.

THE BULL FIS BULLISH MARKET, UP

300% IN ONE DAY.

IT IS GOING WILD.

IN ANY EVENT, THERE IT IS.

Terry: HOPEFUL NEWS.

JUST WHAT WE WANT.

> WELL, COMING UP, WE'RE

GOING TO TAKE YOU TO THE

LARGEST EVANGELICAL CHURCH

IN AZERBAIJAN, WHERE THE

MAJORITY OF MEMBERS ARE

CONVERTS FROM ISLAM,

INCLUDING THE PASTOR.

SEE HOW THEY'RE SPREADING

THE GOSPEL IN A COUNTRY OF

NINE MILLION MOSTLY MUSLIM

PEOPLE.

THAT'S AFTER THIS.

Pat: 15 COUNTRIES

MADE UP THE FORMER SOVIET

UNION UNTIL ITS COLLAPSE

IN 1991.

AND ONE OF THEM WAS A

REPUBLIC KNOWN AS AZ BY

AZERBAIJAN.

IT IS AN OVERWHELMING

MUSLIM COUNTRY.

IT HAD A LITTLE BIT OF OIL

AROUND IT, I MIGHT ADD.

AND PRACTICING ANY OTHER

FAITH IN THAT COUNTRY

COMES WITH A PRICE.

OUR GEORGE THOMAS, IN PART

OF HIS TRAVELS TO BRING

YOU THE UPDATED NEWS -- HE

TRAVELLED TO THE CAPITAL

CITY FAMOUS FOR OIL CALLED

BAKU, ONE OF THE HISTORIC

OIL CENTERS OF THE WORLD.

AND FOR A CLOSER LOOK AT

WHAT IT IS LIKE IN THAT

COUNTRY'S SMALL NUMBER OF

CHRISTIANS.

*

George: JUDGING FROM

THESE SCENES, IT MAY

SURPRISE YOU THAT THIS

PLACE WAS UNDER SOVIET

OCCUPATION FOR 70 YEARS.

SLIGHTLY SMALLER THAN

MAINE, AZERBAIJAN IS THE

93rd LARGEST COUNTRY IN

THE WORLD.

ITS LOCATION, ON THE

WESTERN EDGE OF THE

CASPIAN SEA, GIVES IT

STRATEGIC PROMINENCE.

TURKEY LIES TO THE WEST,

RUSSIA TO THE NORTH.

THE CAPITAL CITY, BAKU, IS

A THRIVING MODERN

METROPOLIS, THANKS LARGELY

TO THE COUNTRY'S OIL

WELLS.

AT ONE TIME, AZERBAIJAN

PRODUCED MORE THAN HALF OF

THE WORLD'S OIL SUPPLY.

NOW, 26 YEARS AFTER

GAINING INDEPENDENCE, THE

GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO

SHED ITS COMMUNIST PAST IN

EXCHANGE FOR CLOSER TIES

WITH THE WEST.

AZERBAIJAN IS HOME TO

ROUGHLY ABOUT NINE MILLION

PEOPLE.

THE MAJORITY OF THEM ARE

MUSLIM.

NO ONE KNOWS FOR SURE THE

EXACT NUMBERS, BUT THE

ESTIMATES ARE THAT ONLY

10,000 ARE EVANGELICAL

CHRISTIANS.

Through Translator: I

WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO

ACCEPT CHRIST.

George: IN 1991,

SHORTLY AFTER THE SOVITY

COLLAPSED.

THIS PERSON BECAME THE

FIRST MUSLIM TO CONVERT TO

CHRISTIANITY.

Through Translator:

NOBODY UNDERSTOOD WHY I

DID THIS, BUT AS I SAW GOD

AT WORK IN MY LIFE, I

REALIZED THAT EVERYONE

AROUND ME WAS SPIRITUALLY

DEAD.

George: HE ACCEPTED

CHRIST WHILE ATTENDING A

RUSSIAN CONGREGATION.

AT THE TIME, THERE WASN'T

A SINGLE CHURCH FOR ETH

NISETHNICAZERI PEOPLE.

IN 19 1995, HE SAYS GOD GAVE

HIM A PROPHETIC WORD.

THE LORD SAID THAT,

EVEN THOUGH THE CHURCH AT

THAT TIME WAS MADE UP OF

MOSTLY RUSSIAN PEOPLE.

SOON IT WOULD BE FILLED

WITH AZERI PEOPLE, AND THE

LORD WOULD DO IT THROUGH

ME.

George: 22 YEARS

LATER, HE LEADS THE

LARGEST AZERI EVANGELICAL

CHURCH IN THE COUNTRY.

THE MAJORITY OF THOSE IN

ATTENDANCE ARE MUSLIM

CONVERTS.

Through Translator:

SOMETIMES WE HAVE AS MANY

AS 30 TO 40 PEOPLE WHO

ACCEPT CHRIST AS THEIR

PERSONAL SAVIOR IN A

SINGLE SERVICE.

George: ESTABLISHING

THIS CHURCH HASN'T BEEN

EASY.

WHILE THE CONSTITUTION

ALLOWS FOR RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM, PEOPLE OF FAITH,

PARTICULARLY CHRISTIANS

AND OTHER MISSIONARIES WHO

ROUTINELY ENGAGE IN

EVANGELISM FACE SOME FORM

OF HARASSMENT AND

INTIMIDATION.

HE SAYS RELIGIOUS LAWS

PASSED IN RECENT YEARS

HAVE MADE IT MORE

DIFFICULT TO REGISTER A

CHURCH, PRINT CHRISTIAN

LITERATURE, AND OPENLY

PROSELYTIZE.

THIS PERSON WORKS WITH A

NETWORK OF UNREGISTERED

HOUSE CHURCHES OUTSIDE THE

CAPITAL CITY.

Through Translator:

IT WOULDN'T BE POSSIBLE

FOR ANYONE TO AFFECTIVELY

SHARE THE GOSPEL WITHOUT

GOD'S WISDOM AND HELP OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

George: HE SAYS IN

THE COUNTRYSIDE, SHARING

ONE'S FAITH COULD LEAD TO

FINES OR IMPRISONMENT.

Through Translator:

PREACHING THE GOSPEL HERE

IS NEVER EASY.

George: ONE EVENING

CBN NEWS JOINED A SECRET

GATHERING OF YOUNG AZERI

BELIEVERS.

WE HAVE MASKED FACES TO

PROTECT THEIR IDENTITIES.

THIS MAN IS PART OF AN

OUTREACH CALLED "SCHOOLS

WITHOUT WALLS," THAT

FOCUSES ON REACHING MUSLIM

FAMILIES.

Through Translator:

MUSLIMS OFTEN NOTICE THAT

WE LIVE JOYFUL LIVES.

THEY WONDER WHERE OUR JOY

COMES FROM, AND WE SAY IT

IS FROM BEING CHRISTIAN.

George: ALI, ANOTHER

CONVERT, USE THE "SCHOOLS

WITHOUT WALLS" PROGRAM TO

MINISTER TO PEOPLE

SEARCHING FOR MEANING IN

LIFE.

HE SAYS THE HOME SETTING

MAKES IT A LITTLE EASIER

TO TALK ABOUT FAITH.

IT IS CONVENIENT AND AN

EASY WAY TO STUDY THE

BIBLE.

YOUNG PEOPLE CAN TALK FACE

TO FACE AND ASK EACH OTHER

QUESTIONS, ALL IN A SAFE

ENVIRONMENT.

George: AND BEING

ABLE TO READ THE BIBLE IN

THE NATIVE AZERI LANGUAGE

HAS DONE MUCH TO EXPAND

THE GROWTH OF THE CHURCH

HERE.

Through Translator:

BEFORE PEOPLE COULD NOT

EVEN FIND THE BIBLE, BUT

NOW THEY HAVE THE HOLY

SCRIPTURES IN THEIR HANDS.

George: HIS PERSON

RUNS THE COUNTRY'S ONLY

CHRISTIAN PUBLISHING

COMPANY.

Through Translator:

WE STARTED BY TRANSLATING

THE BIBLE, SO PEOPLE COULD

HAVE GOD'S WORD IN THEIR

OWN LANGUAGE.

George: BACK IN THE

CAPITAL CITY, THE PASTOR'S

CONGREGATION FACES

CONSTANT SURVEILLANCE.

THE CHURCH HAS BEEN SHUT

DOWN IN THE PAST, AND HE

HAS BEEN ARRESTED NUMEROUS

TIMES.

OUR PATH IS

CHALLENGING, BUT WE

OVERCOME THROUGH CHRIST,

WHO LOVES US.

WE ARE COMMITTED TO

PRAYING FOR OUR PRESIDENT

AND OUR COUNTRY.

George: IN A

PREDOMINANTLY MUSLIM

COUNTRY, WHERE THE

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN

POPULATION NUMBERS ABOUT

10,000, HE IS BELIEVING

GOD FOR HIS NATION.

WE WANT TO SEE AWE YOU ALL NINE

MILLION AZERI PEOPLE TO

COME AND BELIEVE JESUS

CHRIST.

THIS IS OUR DREAM.

Pat: THESE PEOPLE ARE

AT THE POINT OF SHEDDING

BLOOD.

WHO KNOWS WHAT MIGHT

HAPPEN IF THE MAJORITY

POPULATION REALLY GOES ON

A RAMPAGE, WHICH OFTEN

HAPPENS IN PAKISTAN AND

PLACE LIKE THAT.

BUT, ANYHOW, GEORGE IS OUT

THERE ON THE FRONT LINES.

THAT IS BAKU, AND THAT

USED TO BE THE MAJOR OIL

CENTER OF THE WORLD.

AND IT IS STILL VERY KEY

IN TERMS OF THE OIL TRADE.

Terry: WHAT A

BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY.

Pat: ISN'T IT LOVELY?

IN THE OLD DAYS, IT WAS

NOTHING BUT OIL BARRACKS

AND STINKING OIL

EVERYWHERE --

Terry: WELL, STINKING

OIL EVERYWHERE IS

WONDERFUL TO A COMMUNITY.

Pat: AND THEY'RE

STILL BUILDING BUILDINGS

WITH THE PROCEED.

Terry: UP NEXT, A

TWO-TIME WORLD SERIES

CHAMPION TALKS ABOUT HIS

DARKEST DAY.

I WAS IN THE CLOSET, I

GRABBED MY 358 MAGNUM, I

HIT MY KNEES AND POINTED

IT RIGHT AT MY HEAD.

Terry: AUBREY HUFF

REVEALS WHAT NEARLY DROVE

HIM TO SUICIDE, WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: HEY, IT'S A

GREAT DAY.

THE STOCK MARKET IS

BOOMING, AND THERE IS

HAPPINESS IN THE LAND.

THE OPTIMISM IN AMERICA

HAS SHOT UP DRAMATICALLY

BECAUSE WE HAVE TAKEN AWAY

AN OVERHANG THAT WAS OVER

OUR LIVES.

AND THERE IS AN OPTMISTIC

SPIRIT IN THE AIR.

I WANT TO SHOW YOU

SOMETHING THAT WILL MAKE

YOU OPTMISTIC, WITH

SOMEBODY WHO THOUGHT

THINGS WERE SO BAD HE

WANTED TO KILL HIMSELF.

WHEN AUBREY HUFF WERE YOU

SIX YEARS OLD, HIS FATHER

WAS SHOT AND KILLED.

AUBREY WAS AN INNOCENT

BY-STANDER IN A DOMESTIC

DISPUTE.

AND HE GREW UP TO FULFILL

HIS CHILDHOOD DREAM OF

PLAYING BALL IN THE MAJOR

LEAGUES.

AND HE WAS EVEN INVOLVED

IN WINNING TWO WORLD

SERIES, BUT THAT MOMENT

WHEN HE BECAME FATHERLESS

DEFINED HIS LIFE FOR MANY

YEARS, LEAVING HIM

INSECURE AND ANXIOUS AND

EVENTUALLY BRINGING HIM TO

THE POINT WHERE HE TOOK A

GUN TO HIS OWN HEAD.

Reporter: AUBREY HUFF

HAD IT ALL, AT LEAST SO IT

SEEMS.

BUT A CURVEBALL OF

CIRCUMSTANCES BEFORE

ENDURING HIS MAJOR LEAGUE

CAREER KEPT THE

LEFT-HANDED HITTER AT A

LOSS.

LOOK AROUND, I HAVE A

GREAT HOUSE.

I MADE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS

IN BASEBALL.

I HAD A BEAUTIFUL WIFE,

HEALTHY KIDS, TWO WORLD

SERIES RINGS, EVERYTHING

YOU COULD EVER WANT, BUT I

WAS STILL MISERABLE.

FOR ME, GROWING UP WITHOUT

A FATHER, I WAS SO

INSECURE.

Reporter: YOU LOST

YOUR FATHER AT THE AGE OF

SIX.

WHAT HAPPENED?

MY MOM WALKS IN AND

TELLS ME MY FATHER WAS NOT

COMING HOME BECAUSE HE GOT

KILLED BY A MADMAN WITH A

GUN.

LOOKING BACK, BASEBALL

BECAME MY FATHER.

Reporter: WHAT DID

BASEBALL PROVIDE FOR YOU?

AN ESCAPE.

Reporter: HALF OF HIS

CAREER WAS SPENT WITH

TAMPA BAY, WHERE HE CAREER

BEGAN.

I WAS HAVING GREAT

SEASONS IN TAMPA, THAT

LOVE THAT I HAD AS A KID

SLOWLY STARTED TO DWINDLE,

AND THAT STARTED TO BE A

CONCERN FOR ME.

Reporter: AUBREY

MOVED ON, SIGNING HIS

FIRST FREE AGENT CONTRACT

WITH THE BALTIMORE

ORIOLES.

VERY RARE TO DO AS A

HITTER, AND EVEN MORE

RARE, I GET EVERY SINGLE

BALL IN MY CYCLE.

Reporter: DESPITE HIS

ON-FIELD SUCCESS, HIS

RESTLESSNESS GREW.

WE HAD A GAME IN AN

HOUR, AND I DID NOT WANT

TO BE THERE.

I WAS TIRED OF BASEBALL.

AND A TEAMMATE WALKED IN

AND SAID, HEY, MAN, LOOKED

LIKE YOUR STRUGGLING.

HE CAME BACK WITH A LITTLE

ORANGE AND WHITE PILL.

I POPPED IT WITHOUT

QUESTION.

I COULDN'T WAIT TO GET MY

SPIKES ON AND MY UNIFORM

ON AND HIT THE FIELD.

AND IT WAS AT THAT MOMENT,

I KNEW I WAS NEVER GOING

TO PLAY BASEBALL WITHOUT

THIS STUFF, ON ADDERALL.

Reporter: HOW DID IT

IMPROVE YOUR GAME?

BASEBALL IS A GAME OF

MENTAL TOUGHNESS, AND

ADDERALL IS MORE POTENT

THAN STEROIDS OR H.D. H..

H.D.H.

YOUR NO LONGER AFRAID,

YOU'RE NOT NERVOUS BEFORE

A GAME.

I WAS THE COCKIEST GUY YOU

COULD IMAGINE BEING

AROUND.

Reporter: WHEN DID

YOU REALIZE YOU COULDN'T

GET OFF OF IT?

WHEN I DIDN'T TAKE IT

IN THE MORNING, I FELT

DEPRESSED, BORED, ANXIOUS,

IRRITABLE.

IT MADE ME A DR. JECKELL

AND MR. HYDE.

IT TURNED ME INTO SOMEBODY

I HATED.

Reporter: IN 2010,

AUBREY SIGNED WITH THE SAN

FRANCISCO GIANTS, LEADING

THE TEAM TO THEIR FIRST

WORLD SERIES TITLE IN 56

YEARS.

THIS HAS GOT TO BE YOUR

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT?

WHEN YOU'RE A KID,

WINNING A CHAMPIONSHIP IS

A PRETTY SPECIAL THING TO

DO.

I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO

BE ABLE TO DO IT IN 2010

AND 2012.

Reporter: JUST MONTHS

LATER, WITH HIS MARRIAGE

SUFFERING, AUBREY ENTERED

ALCOHOL AND DRUG

TREATMENT.

HIS WIFE FILED FOR

DIVORCE.

ALONE, HE CRIED OUT FOR

HELP.

I REMEMBER GETTING ON

MY KNEES PRAYING, GOD,

I'VE GOT TO GET OFF THIS

STUFF.

JESUS, I NEED YOU.

I CANNOT DO THIS ANYMORE.

I WOULD TAKE THE PILLS AND

FLUSH THEM DOWN THE

TOILET.

I THOUGHT I WOULD WAKE UP

AND WANT A PILL, BUT I

DIDN'T.

AND FROM THAT MOMENT ON, I

NEVER HAVE TAKEN ANOTHER

ADDERALL SINCE.

Reporter: WITHOUT

ADDERALL MASKING AUBREY'S

INSECURITIES, A GROWING

ANXIETY EMERGED.

I THOUGHT PEOPLE WHO

HAD PANIC ATTACKS ARE

MENTALLY WEAK PEOPLE.

I'M LIKE, NO, NOT ME.

AND SURE ENOUGH, I GO TO

THE DOCTOR AND THAT'S WHAT

I HAD.

IT GOT WORSE, ONCE I

RETIRED IN 2012, NOT ONLY

THE TRANSITION OUT OF

BASEBALL, BUT THE PANIC

ATTACKS WERE SUICIDAL.

Reporter: AND YOU

NEARLY PLAYED THAT OUT?

I DID.

I WENT TO MY CLOSET.

I OPENED UP MY CLOSET, I

GRABBED MY .357 MAGNUM AND

GOT ON MY KNEES AND PUT IT

TO MY HEAD.

I PULLED THE HAMMER BACK.

AND I REALIZED THAT MY DAD

WAS MURDERED WITH THIS

SAME CALIBER WEAPON.

I PUT IT DOWN.

I STARTED CRYING TO GOD.

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE HERE

WITH ME.

I THOUGHT YOU WERE IN MY

LIFE.

AND THIS THOUGHT CAME TO

ME.

AUBREY, IF YOU WANT MY

PERFECT PEACE, YOU HAVE TO

GIVE UP CONTROL AND HAVE

FAITH IN ME.

AND IT WAS AT THAT DAY

WHEN I REALIZED I'VE GOT

TO START LIVING FOR HIM,

NOT JUST PRETENDING.

Reporter: HOW DO YOU

SURRENDER CONTROL?

FOR A PROFESSIONAL

ATHLETE, YOU'RE TAUGHT TO

PUT ON THIS WARRIOR

MENTALITY, NOT LET THE

OTHER TEAM SEE ANY SIGN OF

WEAKNESS.

IT IS HARD TO TAKE THAT

GUY ON THE FIELD FOR ALL

THOSE YEARS AND TRANSITION

THAT INTO REAL LIFE.

HOW DO YOU GIVE UP

CONTROL?

I'M STILL LEARNING HOW TO

DO IT.

IT IS MORE ABOUT BEING AT

PEACE WITH WHERE YOU ARE.

READ SCRIPTURE UNTIL

SOMETHING RESONATES WITH

ME.

I TRY TO APPLY THAT TO MY

LIFE EVERY DAY.

Reporter: AUBREY'S

MARRIAGE HAS BEEN

RESTORED.

WHILE PAINTING COLLECTIBLE

BASEBALL HEROS FOR

FUNDRAISERS, HE HAS ALSO

AUTHORED A BOOK, "BASEBALL

JUNKY," TO ENCOURAGE THOSE

BATTLING ANXIETY AND

DEPRESSION.

GOD HAD TO BREAK ME

DOWN TO BUILD ME BACK UP.

NOW I KNEW I NEVER REALLY

NEEDED AN EARTHLY FATHER,

I HAD ONE THE WHOLE TIME,

MY HEAVENLY FATHER.

Reporter: WHO IS

JESUS CHRIST TO AUBREY

HUFF?

HE IS EVERYTHING.

HE IS MY LORD AND MY

SAVIOR.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

DYING ON THE CROSS FOR ME.

HOW COULD YOU EVER FORGIVE

A GUY LIKE ME.

I STRUGGLED WITH THAT FREE

GIFT OF GRACE AND

FORGIVENESS.

AND SO FOR HIM TO GIVE

THAT LOVE BACK, THAT

GRACE, THAT MERCY, THAT,

TO ME, IS JESUS CHRIST.

Pat: ISN'T IT

MARVELOUS.

IT IS HARD TO SURRENDER

WHEN YOU'RE A TOP STAR.

YOU KNOW, YOU'RE A TOUGH

WARRIOR, AND NOW YOU'VE

GOT TO COME HUMBLY TO THE

FOOT OF THE CROSS AND

IDENTIFY WITH SOMEBODY WHO

WAS BEATEN AND WHIPPED AND

HUNG ON A CROSS AND DIED.

YOU KNOW, THAT'S WHO OUR

SAVIOR IS.

HE IS SOMEBODY WHO DIED.

NOW HE ROSE IN POWER AND

HE IS COMING BACK IN GREAT

AUTHORITY, BUT WHEN WE

IDENTIFY WITH HIM NOW, WE

IDENTIFY WITH A WOUNDED

SAVIOR BECAUSE HE IS A MAN

OF SORROWS AND ACQUAINTED

WITH GRIEF.

AND WE HID -- THE BIBLE

SAYS WE HID OUR FACES FROM

HIM BECAUSE HE DIDN'T EVEN

APPEAR HUMAN.

THAT'S WHO WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT.

HUMBLE, A MAN OF SORROWS

AND ACQUAINTED WITH GRIEF.

AND AUBREY MET SUCH A MAN

AND REALIZES THAT HE IS

THE ANSWER.

BUT HE IS COMING IN POWER,

BELIEVE ME.

EVERY KNEE WILL BOW.

EVERY TONGUE WILL CONFESS

THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD

TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE

FATHER.

EVERY TONGUE AND EVERY

KNEE WILL BOW TO HIM ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

THINGS IN HEAVEN, THINGS

ON EARTH, THINGS ABOVE THE

EARTH -- ALL WILL BOW

BEFORE JESUS.

YOU WANT A SAVIOR LIKE

THAT?

HE IS HUMBLE ENOUGH, HE IS

WEAK AND LOWLY IN SPIRIT,

THE BIBLE SAYS, BUT AT THE

SAME TIME HE IS A

CONQUERING HERO.

THAT'S WHO I LIKE.

HE'S MY SAVIOR.

HE IS MY LORD.

AND I WANT TO IDENTIFY

WITH HIS WEAKNESS.

I WANT TO IDENTIFY WITH

HIS SUFFERING.

AND I WANT TO IDENTIFY

WITH HIS TRIUMPH.

HE IS EVERYTHING.

HE IS A PERFECT

EVERYTHING.

YOU WANT HIM?

I OFFER IT TO YOU, THE

SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.

JESUS CHRIST.

BOW YOUR HEAD RIGHT NOW IF

YOU WANT HIM.

PRAY THESE WORDS.

JESUS, YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE

GONE THROUGH.

YOU KNOW MY SIN.

YOU KNOW MY TRIUMPH.

YOU KNOW MY FAILURES.

I COME TO YOU JUST AS I

AM.

I GIVE YOU EVERYTHING.

AND I TAKE FROM YOU A

PRECIOUS GIFT, THE GIFT OF

ETERNAL LIFE.

COME INTO MY HEART, LORD.

LIVE IN ME.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON I

WILL LIVE FOR YOU, AND I

WILL SERVE YOU.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

HEY, IF YOU PRAYED WITH

ME, THAT'S THE BEGINNING.

IT'S NOT THE END.

IT'S THE BEGINNING OF A

WHOLE NEW ADVENTURE.

AND THIS IS A NEW DAY,

WHICH IS A NEW DAY FOR

YOU.

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU.

INSIDE IS A C.D., COMPACT

DISC, THAT HAS ABOUT 73

MINUTES OF VERY, VERY

COMPREHENSIVE TEACHING

ABOUT WHAT JUST HAPPENED.

PUT THIS IN YOUR COMPACT

DISC PLAYER, AND YOU CAN

LISTEN TO IT IN YOUR CAR

OR WHEREVER YOU HAVE ONE.

AND WE ALSO HAVE A LITTLE

BOOKLET IN HERE.

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU, NO

FINANCIAL INVOLVEMENT

WHATSOEVER.

YOU CAN CALL IN: 28

CEASE-FIRE.

1-800-700-7000.

AND YOU CAN SAY, I JUST

PRAYED WITH PAT.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE

US YOUR NAME, CALL ANYHOW

AND SAY, I JUST FOUND THE

LORD AND WE JUST REJOICE

WITH YOU.

TERRY, WHAT'S AHEAD?

Terry: HER PAIN WAS

BAD AND HER FEAR WAS

WORSE.

I THOUGHT, I DON'T WANT

THIS TO KEEP HAPPENING.

IS THIS GOING TO HAPPEN

ALL OF THE TIME?

IT WAS VERY, VERY SCARY.

Terry: WATCH HOW THIS

WOMAN WAS INSTANTLY

HEALED.

THAT'S LATER, ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

CHRISTIANS IN EGYPT ARE

STILL FLEEING FROM ISIS IN

THE NORTHERN SINAI REGION.

THE ONGOING ISIS ATTACKS

HAVE MANY WONDERING IF THE

GOVERNMENT IS DOING ENOUGH

TO PROTECT THEM.

AN EVANGELICAL CHURCH IN

THE NORTHEASTERN AREA OF

EGYPT IS STEPPING IN TO

HELP.

THEY'VE SEEN MORE THAN 500

PEOPLE PASS THROUGH THE

CHURCH SINCE FRIDAY AS

THEY HAND OUT FOOD, WATER,

AND OTHER SUPPLIES.

THE CHURCH IS ALSO HELPING

TO HOUSE CHRISTIANS IN

PRIVATE HOMES IN AND

AROUND THE CITY.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Terry: PRINCESS IS A

LITTLE GIRL WHO IS AS

LOVELY AS HER NAME.

AND YET SO FAR HER LIFE

HAS BEEN ANYTHING BUT A

FAIRYTALE.

RAY AND GEMMA HAVE ONE

DREAM: TO GIVE THEIR

4-YEAR-OLD GRANDDAUGHTER A

BETTER LIFE.

PRINCESS WAS THREE MONTHS

OLD WHEN HER MOTHER

ABANDONED HERMENT.

>HER.

I LOVE LIVING HERE WITH

GRANDMA AND GRANDPA.

Terry: RAIN OR SHINE,

GRANDPA RAY WORKED HARD TO

PROVIDE FOR THEIR FAMILY'S

NEEDS.

BUT THEN A TYPHOON

DESTROYED THE COK COCONUT TREE

AND THE RICE HE PLANTED.

IT WAS HARD.

I PROMISED PEOPLE HALF OF

MY HARVEST.

WE DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH FOOD

TO SURVIVE UNTIL THE NEXT

HARVEST.

Terry: SO GRANDPA

WORKED OTHER JOBS TO PAY

THE MODEST FEES FOR

PRINCESS TO ATTEND SCHOOL.

WHEN THEIR MONEY RAN OUT,

GRANDMA HAD TO BUY FOOD ON

CREDIT.

AND WHEN PRINCESS GOT

SICK, THEY HAD TO BORROW

MONEY FOR MEDICINE.

WHEN I HAVE A HIGH

FEVER, I SHIVER A LOT.

GRANDMA TAKES CARE OF ME.

Terry: ONE DAY

PRINCESS WENT TO A FEEDING

PROGRAM SPONSORED BY CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE." FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG

TIME, PRINCESS ATE A

HEALTHY LUNCH, WITH LOTS

OF FRESH VEGETABLES.

THE FOOD IS MY

FAVORITE.

IT TASTES GOOD.

SHE IS ALWAYS EXCITED

TO GO FOR LUNCH AT THE

CENTER.

I'M SO HAPPY SHE IS EATING

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES.

SHE HASN'T GOTTEN SICK

EVER SINCE.

Terry: WE THEN

TRAINED GRANDMA AND HELPED

HER START A BUSINESS TO

INCREASE THE FAMILY'S

INCOME.

I STARTED A FOOD

VENDING BUSINESS.

I KEPT ADDING ITEMS TO THE

MENU.

AND MY FOOD ALWAYS SELLS

OUT.

THANK YOU, CBN.

Terry: ISN'T IT

WONDERFUL TO KNOW THAT YOU

AND I CAN MAKE THAT KIND

OF A DIFFERENCE IN

PEOPLE'S LIVES?

YOU KNOW, WHEN WE GET SICK

IT IS NOTHING TO STOP AT A

DRUGSTORE AND PICK UP SOME

COUGH SYRUP OR SOME

TYLENOL AND TAKE CARE OF

OUR CHILDREN IN WHATEVER

MEANS WE NEED TO, BUT CAN

YOU IMAGINE BEING IN THAT

KIND OF POVERTY AND HAVING

LIFE HAPPEN?

IF YOU'RE LIVING TODAY,

YOU KNOW LIFE HAPPENS AND

THE UNEXPECTED COMES TO

PLAY.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE "700

CLUB" MEMBERS, YOU'RE

ALLOWING US TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF

LITERALLY THOUSANDS AND

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE AROUND

THE WORLD.

IF YOU'RE NOT A "700 CLUB"

ON AN OPPORTUNITY TO TOUCH

EVER LEAVING THE COMFORT

HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

6 5 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH IS ALL IT TAKES TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

OUR WAY OF ANYWAY THANK

YOU IS TO SEND YOU "THE

SECRET KINGDOM."

> WELL, WHEN WE COME

BACK, I WANT TO SAY THAT

WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR YOU

AND YOUR NEEDS.

DON'T GO AWAY.

WE'LL BE BACK TO DO THAT

IN JUST A MOMENT.

Terry: WELL, IMAGINE

NOT BEING ABLE TO TALK OR

TAKE A BITE OF FOOD.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO

LUANN BOLTZ, WHEN HER JAW

LOCKED UP RIGHT IN THE

MIDDLE OF A MEAL.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: WHAT BEGAN

AS AN ENJOYABLE EVENING

OUT WITH FRIENDS ENDED

WITH LUANN TOOK HER FIRST

BITE.

IT WAS REALLY

FRUSTRATING.

I JUST SAT.

I DIDN'T DO A LOT OF

TALKING.

I JUST SAT AND TRIED TO

EAT.

IT WAS REALLY HARD TO DO.

IT WAS HURTING AND IT WAS

LIKE I WAS NOT ABLE TO

CLOSE MY MOUTH.

LORD, HELP ME.

Reporter: SHE WAS

ABLE TO FINISH EATING ONCE

HER JAW RELAXED, BUT THE

NEXT DAY IT HAPPENED

AGAIN.

ALL OF A SUDDEN I'M

JUST STOPPED.

IT'S LOCKED.

I CAN'T DO ANYTHING WITH

IT.

I WAS TRYING TO MOVE IT,

BUT IT WASN'T WORKING

RIGHT.

I WAS, LIKE, I DON'T WANT

THIS TO KEEP HAPPENING.

IT IS PAINFUL.

I CAN'T GET MY MOUTH

CLOSED.

Reporter: THE JAW

PAIN CONTINUED THROUGH THE

DAY AND INTO THE NIGHT.

AND THEN THIS THOUGHT

COMES, OKAY, IS THIS GOING

TO HAPPEN ALL OF THE TIME?

IT WAS VERY, VERY SCARY.

Reporter: THE

FOLLOWING MORNING, LUANN

AND HER HUSBAND, WALLY,

TURNED ON "THE 700 CLUB."

IN MY HEART, I LIKE LOOKED

TO THE LORD, AND I SAID,

LORD, WHEN THEY HAVE

PRAYER TIME, PLEASE HAVE

THEM TALK ABOUT MY JAW AND

HEAL ME.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH

YOUR JAW.

YOU DIDN'T HAVE THIS YOUR

WHOLE LIFE.

IT RECENTLY JUST LOCKED ON

YOU AND THERE IS A

DISCOMFORT WITH EATING.

I THOUGHT, OH, THAT'S

ME.

AND SHE SAID --

Terry: GOD IS HEALING

THAT.

YOU'LL FEEL A POP AND A

RELIEF.

I SAID, OH, LORD, THANK

YOU SO MUCH.

AND WALLY WAS SITTING NEXT

TO ME, AND HE SAID, YOU'RE

HEALED.

GOD JUST TALKED ABOUT WHAT

IS THE PROBLEM.

HE DID A MIRACLE, AND JUST

TO HAVE IT JUST LIKE THAT

IS REALLY ASTOUNDING FOR

ME.

I DIDN'T HAVE TO ENDURE

THIS FOR DAYS AND WEEKS

AND MONTHS.

Reporter: AND NOW

LUANN ENJOYS EVERY BITE

SHE EATS, PAIN-FREE AND

WORRY-FREE.

I'M SO THANK FOUFUL FOR

THAT WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

IT IS SO AWESOME THAT IT

WAS SO FA. FAST.

GOD HEARS OUR PRAYERS.

AND HERE HE COMES AND

ANSWERS THROUGH SOMEBODY

ELSE, LIKE THIS.

I GET SO EXCITED ABOUT

THAT.

I'M SO THANKFUL AND

GRATEFUL.

NOT ONLY FOR MYSELF, BUT

FOR ALL OF THE OTHER

PEOPLE.

Terry: WOW, LUANN, WE

REJOICE WITH YOU.

IN IS A MIRACULOUS TOUCH

OF GOD.

HE KNOWS OUR NAMES.

HE UNDERSTAND OUR NEEDS.

> THIS IS AN E-MAIL FROM

JULIA, REGARDING LAST

TUESDAY'S SHOW.

SHE SAID, "I RECEIVED AN

AMAZING BLESSING THIS

MORNING.

I SUFFERED FROM A LOT OF

BACK PAIN OFF AND ON FOR

MORE THAN 30 YEARS.

I WAS TOLD I HAVE SEVERAL

BONE SPURS IN MY BACK.

FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS,

I'VE BEEN IN CONSTANT

PAIN.

I WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

A WOMAN WAS TALKING ABOUT

THE PAIN IN HER KNEES AND

HOW THE LORD REGREW HER

CARTILAGE.

WHILE REJOICING FOR HER

HEALING, I WAS ALSO

THINKING I ALWAYS BELIEVED

IT WOULD BE SOMEONE ELSE,

NOT ME.

WHY.

AND WITHIN MOMENTS, PAT

SPOKE AND SIMPLY SAID,

SOMEONE'S BONE SPURS ARE

BEING DISSOLVED.

INSTANTLY I KNEW IT WAS

ME.

MY PAIN WAS GONE.

AND THEN I DID SOMETHING I

HAVEN'T DONE IN A LONG

TIME.

I STOOD UP, STRETCHED, AND

TWISTED MY BACK IN WAYS

THAT WERE NOT POSSIBLE FOR

ME BEFORE."

Pat: JUST A COUPLE OF

DAYS AGO, THE LORD GAVE A

WORD ABOUT BONE SPURS

BEING DISSOLVED.

> HERE IS ALICE, AND SHE

LIVES IN ANCHORIDGE,

ALASKA.

SHE HAD A HARD LUMP IN HER

BEAST.

SHE IMMEDIATELY SAID,

UH-OH, I HAVE CANCER.

SHE HAD CANCER 18 YEARS

AGO, AND SHE CALLED TO

MAKE A DOCTOR'S

APPOINTMENT.

AND THEN ON JANUARY 3rd

SHE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM AND HEARD YOU,

TERRY, SAY THIS "SOMEONE,

YOU DISCOVERED A LUMP AND

IT IS BENIGN.

IT IS GOING TO GO AWAY

SOON."

LO AND BEHOLD, ALICE'S

LUMP WAS GONE.

YOU WERE DOING A LITTLE

DYINDIAGNOSTIC WORK.

WE DON'T KNOW THESE

PEOPLE, BUT GOD KNOWS

THEM.

GOD KNOWS WHO YOU ARE.

> I GUESS WE'RE GOING TO

PRAY.

YOU WANT TO PRAY NOW THAT

YOU'RE BACK?

FATHER, I JOIN WITH TERRY.

WE BELIEVE GOD RIGHT NOW.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH

YOU.

AND I ASK, LORD, THAT YOU

MILITANT HEAL AND TOUCH

LIVES OF THOSE WHO ARE

WATCHING RIGHT NOW.

TERRY, YOU HAVE SOMETHING?

Terry: SOMEONE, YOU

HAVE A CHILD WITH A CLEFT

LIP AND LEFT PALATE, AND

WHILE IT HAS BEEN

REPAIRED, THERE WERE

RESIDUAL PROBLEMS.

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT

RIGHT NOW.

THERE WILL NOT BE A

PROBLEM WITH SPEECH OR

ANYTHING ANY MORE.

Pat: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A NECK PROBLEM.

THE NECK MUSCLES ARE

CONSTRICTIVE, AND THERE IS

SOMETHING INVOLVED IN YOUR

SPINE.

THERE IS SOME KIND OF A

GROWTH THAT IS THERE, AND

IT IS HURTING.

AND YOU HAVE A HARD TIME

MOVING YOUR HEAD.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR NECK

RIGHT NOW.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

HEALING HAS JUST TAKEN

PLACE.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE -- IT IS MORE

THAN ONE PERSON.

EARS JUST POPPING OPEN IN

JESUS' NAME, AND CLEAR

HEARING IS COMING BACK TO

YOU.

Pat: LORD, LET THE

PEACE OF GOD DESCEND UPON

PEOPLE.

MAY THEY KNOW YOUR

PRESENCE AND YOUR POWER IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: OKAY, WE'VE GOT

A FEW QUESTIONS BEFORE WE

SAY GOOD-BYE.

Terry: LET'S "BRING

IT ON".

CAROL SAYS, "MY SISTER

ASKED ME TO GO ON A TRIP

WITH HER.

WE'LL BE STAYING IN A

MOMENT.

SHE JUST INFORMED ME WE'LL

BE STAYING ONE NIGHT WITH

HER SON AND HIS BOYFRIEND

WHO LIVE IN THE AREA.

IS IT WRONG FOR ME TO STAY

THERE?"

Pat: YOU'RE TELLING

ME THE SON IS

HOMOSEXUAL --

Terry: RIGHT.

HER NEPHEW.

Pat: HER SISTER'S

SON, AND HE IS LIVING WITH

THIS GUY, AND THEY'RE

HAVING -- IT'S NOT JUST A

FRIEND --

Terry: NO.

IT'S HIS BOYFRIEND.

Pat: IS IT WRONG TO

STAY THERE?

I THINK YOU WOULD BE CRAZY

TO STAY IN THAT

ENVIRONMENT, FRANKLY, IF

YOU'RE A DEDICATED

CHRISTIAN.

I THINK IT WILL PUT YOU IN

A COMPROMISING SITUATION

THAT YOU DON'T WANT TO BE

IN.

Terry: IT IS AWKWARD.

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

Terry: "DEAR PAT,

DOES GOT WANT US TO TAKE

CARE OF OURSELVES FIRST OR

PUT OTHERS FIRST?"

Pat: LET'S SEE WHAT

THE LORD SAID.

DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU

WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO

YOU.

AND IF YOU DON'T LOVE

YOURSELF, IF YOU DON'T

HAVE ANY KIND OF

SELF-ESTEEM, YOU HAVE A

REAL HARD TIME LOVING

ANYBODY ELSE.

SO I REALLY THINK THAT IT

ISN'T SELF-LOVE, LIKE YOU

WANT TO LOOK AT YOURSELF

AND SAY I'M JUST THE

GREATEST, BUT IF YOU DON'T

HAVE SOME KIND OF

SELF-ESTEEM YOURSELF, YOU

HAVE A HARD TIME REACHING

OUT TO OTHERS.

DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU

WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO

YOU.

IF YOU DON'T FEEL YOU'RE

WORTH ANYTHING, YOU WON'T

DO ANYTHING FOR THEM.

THAT'S THE RULE.

Terry: DEBBIE WANTS

TO KNOW WHAT YOU EAT FOR

BREAKFAST.

Pat: HEALTHY, BABY,

HEALTHY.

I EAT BERRIES.

I HAVE MIXED BERRIES AND I

HAVE BLUEBERRIES.

AND I HAVE MIXED NUTS,

WHICH I LIKE A LOT.

AND THEN I HAVE EITHER

OATMEAL -- NOT COOKED

OATMEAL.

I JUST EAT THE DRY

OATMEAL.

Terry: YOU EAT DRY

OATMEAL -- OH, YOU PUT

MILK ON IT?

Pat: I PUT MILK ON

IT.

I EAT MAYBE SOME RAISIN

BRAN.

THAT'S VERY HEALTHY.

THE NUTS AND BERRIES ARE

THE ANSWER.

THE MICRONUTRIENTS ARE SO

GOOD FOR YOU.

Terry: LORRAINE SAYS,

"DOES GOD FORGIVE US OF

ALL OF OUR SINS PAST,

PRESENT, AND FUTURE, AND

CAN A CHRISTIAN REACH THE

TIPPING POINT OF NO RETURN

FOR OUR SIN?"

Pat: IF YOU ARE

CONCERNED, YOU HAVEN'T

REACHED ANY TIPPING POINT.

I BELIEVE GOD WILL FORGIVE

70 TIMES SEVEN, IS WHAT

THE LORD SAID.

OVER AND OVER AND OVER

AGAIN.

HE IS SO GOOD, SO KIND,

AND SO LOVING.

SO THE ANSWER IS, YES, GOD

WILL FORGIVE US OUR SINS.

BUT THE BIBLE SAYS IF

YOU'VE BEEN BORN AGAIN,

YOU DO NOT CONTINUE IN

SIN.

AND IF YOU KEEP ON DOING

THE SAME THING OVER AND

OVER AGAIN, YOU BETTER

QUESTION WHETHER OR NOT

YOU'VE REALLY BEEN BORN

AGAIN.

SOONER OR LATER, IF YOU

HAVE BEEN BORN OF THE

SPIRIT OF GOD, YOU WILL

START LIVING FOR THE LORD

AND YOU WON'T BE SINNING

ALL OF THE TIME.

Terry: RICHARD SAYS,

"PAT, MY WIFE AND I HAVE

BEEN SAVED FOR 39 YEARS,

AND WE ALWAYS TITHE 10% OF

OUR IN INCOME.

WE'RE RETIRED NOW AND ONLY

LIVE ON SOCIAL SECURITY.

DOES THE LORD REQUIRE

TITHING ON OUR SOCIAL

SECURITY CHECK WHEN WE

TITHED FROM THE INCOME ALL

THOSE YEARS?

WE WANT TO DO THE RIGHT

THING."

Pat: THE LORD IS NOT

SOME BANKER.

BUT THE ANSWER IS YOU HAVE

BUILT UP A SUBSTANTIAL

CREDIT WITH THE LORD.

I THINK HE WOULD WANT YOU

TO LIVE OUT YOUR

RETIREMENT YEARS IN PEACE.

IF YOU'RE HAPPY GIVING A

PART OF YOUR SOCIAL

SECURITY, BY ALL MEANS DO

IT.

WE'RE NOT UNDER

OBLIGATION.

THAT'S SOMETHING FOR THE

OLD TESTAMENT.

WE'RE TO GIVE OUT OF OUR

HEART AS WE LOVE THE LORD.

EVERYTHING WE HAVE BELONGS

TO HIM.

AND WE KEEP WHAT HE LET'S

US KEEP.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

PROVERBS 28: "A FAITHFUL

MAN WILL ABOUND WITH

BLESSING."

AGAIN, WE WELCOME BACK

TERRY FROM A LITTLE BIT OF

AN ORDEAL IN THE HOSPITAL.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: THANK YOU.

AND THANK YOU FOR THE

GIFT.
