Gordon: FROM "SHARK

TANK" TO OUR STUDIOS, THE

FOUNDER OF THE "GRACE AND

LACE," RICK AND MELISSA

SHARE HOW THEY STARTED

THEIR BUSINESS AFTER THE

LOSS OF THEIR BABY AND HOW

IT IS NOW IMPACTING OTHERS

AROUND THE WORLD ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

> GOOD MORNING, AND

WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

AT A TIME WHERE THERE ARE

SO MANY PEOPLE THAT ARE

DIVIDED AND WONDER IF

REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS

CAN EVEN STAY IN THE SAME

ROOM TOGETHER, LET ALONE

WORK TOGETHER, WE BRING

YOU A STORY THAT SOUNDS

LIKE IT COULD BE A PLOT

FROM A COMING MOVIE CALLED

"BIPARTISAN ROMANCE."

Terry: A RECENT

SNOWSTORM CANCELLED

FLIGHTS FROM TEXAS D.C.,

BETTA AND YORK WANTED TO

MAKE IT BACK IN TIME TO

VOTE ON LEGISLATION, SO

THEY RENTED A CAR TO DRIVE

THE 1600 MILES TO

WASHINGTON TOGETHER.

THEY LIVE-STREAMED THEIR

TRIP, ANSWERING QUESTIONS

FROM POLICY TO FAMILY TO

MUSIC AND CONNECTED OVER A

MUTUAL RESPECT FOR SINGER

JOHNNY CASH.

* I FELL INTO A BURNING

RING OF FIRE *

* I WENT DOWN, DOWN, DOWN

AND THE FLAMES WENT

HIGHER *

* AND IT BURNS, BURNS,

BURNS, THE RING OF FIRE *

* THE RING OF FIRE

Terry: DON'T QUIT

YOUR DAY JOB, BUT THE TWO

GARNERED A HUGE FOLLOWING,

AND HAVE CALLED ON

COLLEAGUES TO PARTICIPATE

IN THEIR OWN BIPARTISAN

ROAD TRIP TO FIND COMMON

GROUND.

AND THE TWO ARE NOW

TALKING ABOUT HAVING

THANKSGIVING TOGETHER.

IT IS AN ENCOURAGING

THING.

Gordon: IT IS A

WONDERFUL THING, BUT WE

DON'T ENCOURAGE YOU TO

STREAM AND DRIVE.

IT LOOKED LIKE THEY HAD A

LIGHT ON.

I DON'T KNOW IF THAT WAS

SAFE FOR ALL OF THE OTHER

DRIVERS ON THE ROAD.

BUT IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL

IF DEMOCRATS AND

REPUBLICANS CAN SAY LET'S

PUT ASIDE THE ELECTION FOR

TWO YEARS AND LET'S GET

AROUND THE BUSINESS OF

GOVERNING THE COUNTRY.

> AND WE HAVE ANOTHER

STORY THAT HAS GONE VIRAL.

VIRGINIA MELON SHAVED HER

HEAD AND WENT ALL THE WAY

DOWN TO A BUZZ CUT SO HER

SON COULD SEE HER AS A

MOTHER WHO DOESN'T MAKE

DECISIONS ABOUT HER

APPEARANCE BASED ON WHAT

OTHERS THINK.

SHE SHAVED THIS ON

Facebook.

ON ANY GIVEN DAY THERE ARE

COUNTLESS OPPORTUNITIES

FOR US TO SECOND-GUESS

OURSELVES, TO FEEL LIKE

SOMEHOW WE'RE NOT ENOUGH.

A HAIRSTYLE MAY SEEM A

LITTLE TRIVIAL, BUT

SHAVING MY HEAD MAKES ME

FEEL POWERFUL BECAUSE IT'S

A DAILY REMINDER THAT I

MADE A DECISION BASED ON

MY OWN SELF-IMAGE AND NOT

BASED ON SOCIETY'S

EXPECTATION.

THAT'S THE ME I REALLY

WANT MY SON TO KNOW.

AND THAT'S AN AWESOME

SENTIMENT.

I'M NOT SURE I WOULD DO

THAT --

Terry: I THINK SHE

FEELS GOOD ABOUT HERSELF.

Gordon: HOW ABOUT

YOU?

ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE THE

DIVE?

Terry: THAT WOULD BE

A NO.

NO.

THAT'S PRETTY EXTREME.

SOME WOMEN CAN DO THAT.

I HAVE KNOWN SOME WHO HAVE

DONE IT TO COME ALONGSIDE

A FRIEND WHO IS STRUGGLING

WITH CANCER.

Gordon: THAT'S THE

PRIMARY REASON.

Terry: AND THEY LOOK

AWESOME.

MOST OF US DON'T FALL INTO

THAT CATEGORY.

IN FACT, WHEN I WASH MY

FACE AT NIGHT, MY

GRANDMOTHER GOES, GIGI,

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR

EYEBROWS?

[LAUGHTER]

Gordon: TO UNDERLINE,

PERHAPS WE PUT TOO MUCH

IMPORTANCE ON APPEARANCE.

AND WE NEED TO HONOR THE

PERSON AND NOT THE LOOK.

Terry: YES.

Gordon: AND THAT'S A

WONDERFUL THING.

Terry: IT IS A

WONDERFUL THING.

> IN OTHER NEWS ACROSS

THE COUNTRY, WOMEN IN

AMERICA ARE BEING BRANDED

WITH CROWN TATTOOS.

IT IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL FORM

OF BONDAGE.

VICTIMS OF SEX TRAFFICKING

ARE HAVING IT FORCED ON TO

THEIR SKIN, WHICH IS OFTEN

ACCOMPANIED BY THE NAME OF

THEIR PIMP.

SURVIVOR JENNIFER KEMTON

EXPERIENCED AN INCREDIBLE

SENSE OF FREEDOM AND HOPE

AFTER REPLACING THE NAME

OF HER PIMP WITH A NEW

TATTOO.

THAT HELPED HER HEAL AND

WAS THE BEGINNING OF HER

MINISTRY, "SURVIVORS'

INC.," WHICH HELPS

SURVIVORS TO COVER UP

THEIR TATTOO WITH A TATTOO

OF THEIR CHOICE.

IT RAISES MONEY TO PROVIDE

RESOURCES VICTIMS NEED TO

PSYCHOLOGICAL MOVE

FORWARD, WHILE ALSO

COVERING THE TRAUMA THAT

IS E ENGRAVED IN THEIR SKIN.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEARN

MORE OR DONATE, GO TO

survivorsInc.org.

IN THE BIBLE, IT WAS A

SIGN OF SLAVERY --

Gordon: OR ALLEGIANCE

TO A PARTICULAR GOD.

UNDER ORTHODOX JUD JUDAISM,

YOU CAN'T BE BURIED IN THE

SAME CEMETERY IF YOU HAVE

A TATTOO ON YOUR BODY.

SO THE PROHIBITION WAS

EXTREME.

I DO WONDER IN TODAY'S

CULTURE, IT SEEMS VERY

POPULAR TO GET INKED, AND

TO HAVE THAT DISPLAYED,

AND IT IS SOMEHOW A SENSE

OF PERSONAL IDENTITY.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT, I

GUESS BECAUSE I'M OLD.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.

Terry: IT IS SO GOOD

FOR YOU TO SAY THAT ON

TAPE AND AVAILABLE.

Gordon: BUT WHEN YOU

SEE IT BEING USED IN SEX

TRAFFICKING AND NOT JUST

THE CROWN WITH THE NAME,

BUT WE EVEN SEE BAR

CODES --

Terry: YES.

Gordon: -- WE'RE

YOU'RE NOW PROPERTY --

Terry: IT IS A

DELIBERATE BRANDING.

Gordon: -- AND IT IS

SAYING THIS IS MERCHANDISE

YOU CAN BUY, THAT IS

HORRIFIC.

Terry: I AGREE.

Gordon: AND IT NEEDS

TO STOP.

> WE HAVE ANOTHER STORY

ABOUT TATTOOS, A TATTOO

ARTIST WHO IS OFFERING A

WAY FOR PEOPLE WITH

SELF-HARM STARS TO REWRITE

THEIR PAST AND THEIR SKIN.

WHITNEY DEVILLE WROTE ON

HER Facebook AND INS

INSTAGRAINSTAGRAM THAT SHE OFFERS

FREE TATTOOS FOR PEOPLE

WHO HAVE SELF-CUT.

THE ONLY THING THE PERSON

HAS TO DO IS AGREE TO STOP

SELF-HARMING.

SHE SAID I WANT YOU TO BE

ABLE TO LOOK AT THE SCARS

THAT BRING YOU

EMBARRASSMENT AND SHAME

AND BE ABLE TO PUT THOSE

FEELINGS BEHIND YOU AND

INSTEAD FEEL PROUD OF THE

BODY PART THAT NOW

CONTAINS ART AND OFFERS A

NEW BEGINNING.

AND THAT'S A WONDERFUL

THING TO DO.

Terry: OH, IT REALLY

IS.

Gordon: AGAIN, I

DON'T UNDERSTAND THE RISE

OF SELF-HARM IN OUR

CULTURE, THAT SOMEHOW YOU

FEEL SO NUMB YOU WANT TO

INFLICT PAIN ON YOURSELF

JUST SO THAT YOU CAN FEEL,

OR YOU FEEL SO ASHAMED AND

ABUSED THAT IT'S A CRY FOR

HELP.

BEFORE YOU SELF-HARM,

PLEASE ASK FOR HELP.

GO FIND IT.

YOU DON'T WANT A LINGER

SCAR AS A MEMORY FOR THE

REST OF YOUR LIFE AS TO

WHY YOU DID THAT.

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP NEXT, THEY'RE THE

COUPLE WHO STARTED A

COMPANY IN THE MIDST OF

PERSONAL TRAGEDY AND THEN

WOUND UP BREAKING RECORDS

ON "SHARK TANK."

LEARN THE STORY BEHIND

"GRACE AND LACE" WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Terry: OUR NEXT

GUESTS TURNED THEIR

DEEPEST TRAGEDY INTO THEIR

GREATEST VICTORY.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: RICK AND

MELISSA HENAN WERE EXCITED

TO START A FAMILY.

IN 2010, WHEN MELISSA WAS

FIVE MONTHS PREGNANT, SHE

WAS ORDERED ON BED REST

UNTIL THE BABY WAS BORN.

TO PASS THE TIME, SHE

STARTED SEWING AND

KNITTING.

THEY WERE HAR HEARTBROKEN WHEN

MELISSA LOST THE BABY TWO

WEEKS LATER.

BUT RICK AND MELISSA

DECIDED TO CHANNEL THAT

PAIN INTO SOMETHING GOOD.

THEY LAUNCHED THEIR

COMPANY, "GRACE AND LACE",

BY MAKING AND TELLING

SOCKS ONLINE.

AFTER BEING ON "SHARK

TANK," THEY HIT $1 MILLION

IN FIVE DAYS.

Terry: JOINING US NOW

ARE THE FOUNDERS OF "GRACE

AND LACE", RICK AND

MELISSA.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

US.

Terry: WERE YOU

HAVING A PERFECTLY NORMAL

PREGNANCY, MELISSA, BEFORE

YOUR FIFTH MONTH?

I WAS.

WE HAD STRUGGLED TO GET

PREGNANT IN THE BEGINNING.

WE HAD ALWAYS DESIRED TO

HAVE A FAMILY.

BUT ONCE I WAS, EVERYTHING

WAS GOING GREAT UNTIL THAT

ONE DOCTOR'S VISIT.

Terry: SO YOU REALLY

HAD NO PREPARATION FOR ANY

OF WHAT YOU WERE ABOUT TO

EMBARK ON.

NO.

Terry: THEY PUT YOU

ON BED REST, AND EVEN THEN

YOU HAD THE HOPE IF YOU

JUST DID EVERYTHING THEY

SAID, YOU WERE GOING TO

DELIVER THIS BABY

NORMALLY, PROBABLY A

LITTLE BIT EARLY.

BUT WITHIN -- WAS IT A

COUPLE OF WEEKS?

THEY RUSHED ME INTO

EMERGENCY SURGERY, AND THE

DOCTORS GAVE ME THE

INITIAL DEVASTATING NEWS,

YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE BIRTH

TO YOUR DAUGHTER WITHIN 24

HOURS AND SHE IS NOT GOING

TO SURVIVE.

THAT WAS HEARTBREAKING.

THEY RUSHED ME INTO

SURGERY, AND THEY SAID,

WE'LL DO WHAT WE CAN TO

HELP HER, BUT YOU'LL BE IN

THE HOSPITAL.

AND IT WAS DURING THAT

TIME IN THE HOSPITAL, ON

BED REST, THAT I BEGAN TO

SEW.

Terry: I CAN'T

IMAGINE THE FEAR THAT MUST

HAVE BEEN IN YOUR HEAFORT, HEART,

THE POTENTIAL OF THIS

LOSS, AND YOU START

CREATING, WITH NO IDEA

THAT WAS EVER GOING TO GO

ANYWHERE.

IT WAS MORE TO PASS THE

TIME.

EXACTLY.

WHEN YOU'RE STUCK IN THE

HOSPITAL, YOU CAN WATCH

TV, AND THAT'S ABOUT IT.

I NEEDED TO PASS THE TIME.

Terry: RICK, IN THE

MIDDLE OF ALL OF THIS

CHAOS AND POTENTIAL

TRAGEDY, HOW DID YOU FACE

IT AND YOUR ABILITY TO

ENDURE?

I WOULD SAY THAT WAS AT

THE FOREFRONT OF

EVERYTHING.

BUT WE LOVE GOD, AND WE

SAID THIS IS WHAT FAITH IS

ALL ABOUT.

WE SAID, LET'S MAKE THE

BEST OF IT.

IF THIS IS WHAT IT IS

GOING TO TAKE TO HAVE A

HEALTHY CHILD, NO BIG

DEAL.

WE'RE GOING TO DO IT, NO

PROBLEM.

Terry: SO IN THE

MIDDLE OF THAT, YOU BEGIN

TO KNIT A BLANKET FOR

HAYLEY, AND YOU WENT ON TO

FINISH THAT, EVEN AFTER

SHE WENT TO BE WITH THE

LORD.

WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH

YOUR MIND?

BECAUSE I STARTED WHILE

I WAS BED REST, IT WAS

KIND OF A HEALING MOMENT

FOR ME.

THE LORD SPOKE TO ME,

KNITTING THAT FOR HER,

EVEN THOUGH SHE WASN'T

THERE IN PERSON -- I KIND

OF FELT LIKE MY BODY

FAILED, BUT I COULD STILL

CREATE AND DEVELOP, AND

SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL COULD

STILL COME FROM THIS YARN.

THE LORD REALLY MINISTERED

THROUGH ME, IN CONTINUING

TO CREATE WITH MY HANDS,

EVEN THOUGH MY BODY HAD

FAILED IN GIVING BIRTH TO

HER.

Terry: AFTER THE

BLANKET CAME THESE LEG --

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU CALL

THEG?

BOOT SOCKS.

Terry: LACED UP BOOT

SOCKS.

AND YOU HAD PEOPLE

STOPPING YOU ON THE

STREETS, SAYING, WHERE DID

YOU GET THEM?

I MADE A PAIR FOR

MYSELF, AND IT TOOK ME

FIVE HOURS TO MAKE.

AND I PROMISED HIM I WOULD

NEVER MAKE ANOTHER PAIR.

AND HERE WE ARE OVER

100,000 PAIRS LATER.

IT TOOK FIVE HOURS TO

MAKE, SO I'M GOING TO WEAR

THEM.

AND EVERYWHERE I WENT,

PEOPLE WOULD STOP AND ASK

ME WHERE I GOT THEM.

Terry: RICK, YOU HAVE

AN ENTREPRENEUR'S HEART,

AND YOU DID LONG BEFORE

ANY OF THIS HAPPENED.

AT WHAT POINT DID YOU SAY,

HEY, LET'S THROW THESE UP

ON LINE AND SEE IF WE CAN

GET A CUSTOMER.

WHEN SHE WOULD COME

HOME AND HAVE BUSINESS

CARDS AND PEOPLE'S NOTES

WITH HANDWRITTEN

INFORMATION, SOMETHING

TOLD ME WE MIGHT BE ON TO

SOMETHING.

I THOUGHT, LET'S THROW IT

UP ON LINE AND SEE WHAT

HAPPENS.

Terry: YOU THREW IT

UP ON LINE AND YOU

IMMEDIATELY, REALLY --

INSTANTLY.

WITHIN A MATTER OF THREE

DAYS, WE HAD OVER 500

PURCHASE ORDERS.

Terry: A FIVE HOURS A

POP, THAT MUST HAVE BEEN

TERRIFYING TO YOU.

[LAUGHTER]

WE'RE PEOPLE THAT GOD

HAS INSTILLED IN US TO BE

ABLE TO FIGURE THINGS OUT.

I TOLD MELISSA, I SAID,

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO MAKE

500 PAIRS, BUT YOU KNOW

HOW TO MAKE THEM.

SO LET'S GO FIND AS MANY

SEAMSTRESSES AS WE CAN,

AND TEACH THEM HOW TO DO

IT, AND THEN WE'LL FULFILL

THE ORDERS.

AND I THOUGHT THAT WOULD

PROBABLY BE THE END OF IT.

ORDERS KEPT COMING IN, AND

IT TURNED INTO THOUSANDS.

AND BEFORE WE KNEW IT,

WE HAD A BUSINESS.

Terry: FROM THIS NEW

BUSINESS TO "SHARK TANK,"

HOW DID THAT QUANTUM LEAP

HAPPEN?

EVERYBODY WOULD LIKE TO DO

THAT.

WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A

FAN OF "SHARK TANK."

WE DON'T HAVE TIME FOR TV,

BUT WE'LL FIND TIME FOR

"SHARK TANK."

AND EVER SINCE SEASON ONE,

RICK HAD ALWAYS SAID,

MELISSA, WOULDN'T IT BE

GREAT IF WE HAVE A

BUSINESS THAT SOME DAY

WOULD BE ON "SHARK TANK."

AND I WOULD BE, NO, NO, I

DON'T WANT TO GET EATEN

UP.

AND WHEN "GRACE AND LACE"

STARTED, HE WAS APPLYING

FOR THE SHOW.

I HAD NO FAITH WE'D BE ON.

Terry: BUT A FRIEND

OF YOURS CAME FORWARD --

YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THIS

GUY KNEW ANYBODY WITH THE

SHOW?

NO.

AND MY FRIEND DIDN'T KNOW

WE WANTED TO BE ON "SHARK

TANK."

I HAD APPLIED FIVE TIMES

AND HEARD NOTHING.

ONE PHONE CALL TO HIM, AND

I ASKED HIM IF HE WANTED

TO BE A PARTNER WITH US,

AND HE SAID, I DO, BUT I

REALLY FEEL LIKE YOU

SHOULD BE ON "SHARK TANK."

AND FROM THAT, HE

CONNECTED US TO A

PRODUCER, AND THE REST IS

HISTORY, AS WE SAY.

Terry: YOU WOUND UP

PARTNERING WITH BARBARA

FROM THE "SHARK TANK" CREW

OF PEOPLE.

AND AFTER THE SHOW AIRED,

WHAT HAPPENED?

OH, N OH, MY GOODNESS, THINGS

EXPLODED.

WE WENT FROM WHAT WE

THOUGHT WAS A THRIVING

BUSINESS TO AIRING IN

FRONT OF EIGHT MILLION

VIEWERS.

WE DID OVER A MILLION

DOLLARS IN BUSINESS IN

FIVE DAYS.

AND THAT HAD NEVER BEEN

DONE ON "SHARK TANK."

NEVER BEEN DONE.

WE WERE EXCITED ABOUT

SEEING THE NUMBERS COMING

IN, AND ALSO THINKING, OH,

MY GOODNESS, HOW ARE WE

POSSIBLY GOING TO FULFILL

THIS MANY ORDERS.

WE WERE USED TO ABOUT 150

TO 205 250 ORDERS A DAY.

AND WE WENT TO ABOUT 4,000

A DAY.

WE WENT FROM SIX EMPLOYEES

TO 36 TWO DAYS AFTER

"SHARK TANK."

Terry: AND YOU'VE

CREATED MANY MORE

PRODUCTS.

NOT JUST BOOT SOCKS.

Terry: "GRACE AND

LACE" LACE HAS EXPANDED.

YES.

Terry: YOU ALSO HAD A

DESIRE TO CHANGE AND MAKE

A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES

OF PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T HAVE

THE SAME OPPORTUNITY.

TALK ABOUT THAT.

WE'VE ALWAYS BEEN

MISSION-MINDED, BOTH OF

US.

I GREW UP IN A CHRISTIAN

HOME, BUT EVER SINCE THE

AGE OF 13, I SPENT MY

SUMMERS OVERSEAS ON

MISSION TRIPS.

AND THE LORD HAS REALLY

BURDENED ME FOR THE

POOREST OF THE POOR.

THE SUMMER OF MY -- WHEN I

WAS 18, I WAS IN INDIA,

AND I HAD NEVER SEEN POOR

LIKE THAT BEFORE.

POVERTY JUST AT THE MOST

EXTREME.

AND I LEFT WITH A NOTE IN

MY JOURNAL THAT SAID, I

NEED TO DO SOMETHING MORE,

I WAS SO BURDENED.

AND NEVER IN A MILLION

YEARS WOULD I HAVE THOUGHT

THE LORD WOULD GIVE US A

BUSINESS THAT WOULD BE

ABLE TO SUPPORT AND FUND

THE BUILDING OF ORPHANAGES

IN INDIA, AND WE HAVE BEEN

ABLE TO DO THAT THROUGH

"GRACE AND LACE".

Terry: THROUGH YOUR

TRAGEDY CAME BLESSING AND

OPPORTUNITY.

I DON'T KNOW WHY GOD

CHOOSES SOMETIMES THAT IT

HAPPENS THAT WAY.

MAYBE HE TAKES WHAT IS IN

THE WORLD THAT IS TRAGIC

AND TURNS AROUND AND GIVES

US BEAUTY FOR ASHES.

AND OUT OF THAT, YOU HAVE

REACHED BACK INTO SOMEONE

ELSE'S TRAGIC

CIRCUMSTANCES AND MADE A

DIFFERENCE.

WHERE ARE YOU GOING WITH

ALL OF THIS?

WHAT'S YOUR VISION?

THIS IS GOD'S BUSINESS.

WE SIMPLY STEWARD THE

BUSINESS.

IT IS HIS STORY.

IF I KNEW THE ANSWER TO

THAT, I WOULD TELL YOU,

BUT, HONESTLY, I DON'T.

I THINK WE'RE JUST IN THE

BEGINNING PHASES.

WE HAVE A HUGE HEART.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS

BUSINESS AT $100 MILLION

PLUS, PLUS, PLUS, BUT IT

IS REALLY GOD'S STORY.

SO WE'RE FOLLOWING HIM TO

THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY.

AND HOPEFULLY HE TAKES IT

AND EXPLODES IT.

BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT?

HE MAY NOT.

BUT WE'RE GOING TO DO

EVERYTHING WE CAN TO GO

AFTER HIM.

PSALM 37: 4: "DELIGHT

YOURSELF IN THE LORD THAT

HE WILL GRANT YOU THE

DESIRES OF YOUR HEART."

SO WE WANT TO GO AFTER HIM

WITH ALL THAT WE'VE GOT,

AND LET HIM BRING THE

DESIRES OF OUR HEART TO

YOUS.

Terry: HOW WONDERFUL.

HAYLEY IS APPLAUDING, I AM

SURE.

RICK AND MELISSA ARE DOING

SO MUCH.

IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN

SEEING ALL THAT "GRACE AND

LACE" HAS TO OFFER, CHECK

OUT THEIR WEBSITE AT

graceandlace.com.

THANK YOU BOTH SO MUCH.

THANK YOU, TERRY.

Terry: STILL TO COME,

MEET A MAN WHO LIVED IN

PAIN FOR DECADES.

SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS

RAISING MY ARM UP TO WASH

UNDER IT, IT HAS COME OUT

OF SOCKET DOING THAT, AND

I WOULD HAVE TO GET OUT OF

THE SHOWER IN INTENSE PAIN

AND LAY ON THE BED AND

FORCE MY ARM TO GO BACK

INTO PLACE.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

MAN WAS HEALED IN AN

INSTANT, RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: ANDY ANDERSON

LOVES TO PLAY TUG-OF-WAR

WITH HIS DOG, BUT NOT LONG

AGO THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN

IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM.

SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS

TAKING A SHOWER COULD

LEAVE HIM IN PAIN.

UNTIL ONE PRAYER FREED HIM

FROM TWO DECADES OF

MISERY.

I'VE BROKEN SEVERAL

BONES BEFORE, AND ALL I

CAN TELL YOU IS IT HURT

WAY WORSE THAN ANY BROKEN

BONE I'VE EVER

EXPERIENCED.

Reporter: ANDREI ANDY

ANDERSON WAS A TEENAGER

WHEN HE DISLOCATED HIS

SHOULDER SHOOTING BASKETS

AT A PLAYGROUND, BUT EVEN

AFTER A DOCTOR RESET HIS

SHOULDER, HE WOULD

CONTINUE TO HAVE PROBLEMS.

I COULD JUST BE TAKING

A SHOWER, AND WASHING

UNDER MY ARMS, AND DOING

SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS

RAISING MY ARM UP TO WASH

UNDER IT, IT HAS COME OUT

OF SOCKET DOING THAT

BEFORE.

AND I WOULD HAVE TO GET

OUT OF THE SHOWER IN

INTENSE PAIN AND LAY DOWN

ON THE BED AND FORCE MY

ARM TO GET BACK INTO

PLACE.

Reporter: ANDY HAD

LIVED WITH THE PAIN FOR 15

YEARS, WHEN HE FELL A

SECOND TIME, AND HE BROKE

HIS SCAPULA AND DISLOCATED

HIS SHOULDER AGAIN.

WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE

TREMENDOUS PAIN LIKE THAT,

YOU KIND OF GO INTO PANIC.

IT WAS VERY DISCOURAGING

AND DISHEARTENING.

AND OVER A PERIOD OF

YEARS, I KIND OF LEARNED

TO MOVE IN CERTAIN WAYS.

Reporter: THE PAIN

CONTINUED FOR SEVERAL MORE

YEARS.

THEN ONE MORNING, ANDY

TURNED ON "THE 700 CLUB."

Gordon: IN AN ACT OF

FAITH, TOUCH THAT AREA OF

THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

SO I TOOK MY LEFT HAND,

AND I PLACED IT UPON MY

RIGHT SHOULDER, WHERE THE

INJURY IS AT, AND I CLOSED

MY EYES.

Gordon: SOMEONE,

YOU'VE HAD A LONG-TERM

INJURY IN YOUR RIGHT

SHOULDER.

THERE WAS A BROKEN

SCAPULA, AS WELL AS

LIGAMENT DAMAGE IN THE

JOINT.

AND GOD IS HEALING ALL OF

THAT FOR YOU.

YOU JUST FELT A WAVE GO

THROUGH THAT SHOULDER, AND

JUST A RELEASE.

AND YOU'RE ABLE TO FREELY

MOVE IT.

WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO

BEFORE, DO IT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

START MOVING THAT RIGHT

ARM.

WHEN HE SAID THAT, I

JUST HIT MY KNEES, AND I

KNEW THAT THIS HEALING WAS

SPECIFICALLY FOR ME.

AND I FELT THIS TINGLING

IN MY RIGHT SHOULDER AT

THIS POINT.

IT WAS A SENSATION THAT I

HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED

BEFORE.

GOD LITERALLY REACHED DOWN

AND TOUCHED MY SHOULDER,

AND HE HEALED IT, JUST

LIKE TURNING ON A LIGHT

SWITCH.

AN INJURY THAT I'VE

CARRIED FOR OVER TWO

DECADES WAS JUST GONE.

Reporter: ANDY HAS

BEEN PAIN-FREE EVER SINCE.

HE IS GRATEFUL FOR GOD'S

LOVE AND FOR FAITHFUL

PRAYER.

I'M SO FILLED WITH

GRATITUDE TO THE LORD FOR

HEALING ME AND I'M FILLED

WITH GRATITUDE TO GORDON

AND "THE 700 CLUB."

IT HAS INCREASED MY FAITH

IN THE LORD.

SINCE HE REACHED DOWN AND

HEALED ME ON A VERY

PERSONAL LEVEL, IT HAS

ABSOLUTELY SKYROCKETED MY

LOVE AND MY FAITH FOR THE

LORD.

GOD IS THE ULTIMATE

PHYSICIAN.

HE IS THE ULTIMATE HEALER.

Gordon: HE IS THE

PHYSICIAN.

HE IS THE HEALER.

IT IS ONE OF HIS NAMES.

I AM THE LORD WHO HEALS

YOUR DISEASE.

HE LOVES TO DO IT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO ARGUE

WITH HIM, BARTER WITH HIM.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO MAKE

COVENANTS.

THE COVENANT HAS ALREADY

BEEN MADE.

WHEN WAS IT MADE?

IT WAS MADE ON THE CROSS.

BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

PETER GOES FORWARD AND

SAYS, WE WERE HEALED.

WRAP YOUR MIND AROUND THAT

ONE.

WE WERE HEALED.

WHEN DID YOUR SINS GET

FORGIVEN?

2000 YEARS AGO.

WHEN WERE YOU HEALED?

2000IER2000 YEARS AGO.

Terry: TRU JUAN SAYS,

"I'VE HAD HERNIA SURGERY

AND AM HAVING A HARD TIME

RECOVERING.

PLEASE PRAY THE LORD WILL

HEAL ME QUICKLY AND

FULLY."

AND TANYA SAYS, "I'VE BEEN

SICK OVER A MONTH, AND

DOCTORS ARE EXPECTING IT

COULD BE LUPUS OR SOME

OTHER THINGS, AND SHE

NEEDS TOTAL BODY HEALING."

Gordon: OKAY, WE'RE

GOING TO PRAY.

I BELIEVE FAITH IS AN ACT.

SO IN AN ACT OF FAITH, DO

WHAT ANDY DID.

LAY YOUR HAND ON THAT AREA

OF THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

AND TERRY AND I ARE GOING

TO AGREE.

AND HERE IS WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS: WHEN TWO OR MORE

AGREE TOUCHING ANYTHING,

IT SHALL BE DONE.

SHE'S ARE THE WORDS OF

JESUS.

SO LET'S PRAY.

LORD, AS PEOPLE ARE LAYING

HANDS ON THAT AREA OF THE

BODY THAT NEEDS HEALING,

WE JOIN TOGETHER WITH

THEM.

AND WE SAY OUT LOUD TO

IT -- OUT LOUD -- BE

HEALED IN JESUS' NAME, BY

THE STRIPES OF JESUS, BY

HIS SACRIFICE ON THE

CROSS.

I AM HEALED NOW.

I RECEIVE IT.

I BELIEVE IT NOW.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'RE

LAYING YOUR HAND ON THE

BACK OF YOUR NECK, ON THE

LEFT SIDE, AND GOD HAS

JUST HEALED YOU AND

RESTORED YOU.

YOU JUST FELT IT

COMPLETELY RELEASE.

ALL OF THAT MUSCLE

TIGHTNESS, ANYTHING THAT

WAS WRONG UNDERNEATH,

RIGHT NOW, IN JESUS' NAME

BE HEALED AND BE MADE

WHOLE.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE

IS SAYING RIGHT NOW, MY

BACK PAIN IS IN THE LOWER

BACK.

WELL, YOU'RE BEING HEALED,

TOO.

JUST PUT YOUR HAND THERE

AND RECEIVE IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

Gordon: LORD, WE LIFT

UP THESE PRAYER REQUESTS,

FOR TRUDY AND HIS KNEE,

RESTORE IT, AND JUAN, BE

WITH HIM, AND FOR THE ONE

WITH THE AUTO IMMUNE, CALM

EVERYTHING IN THE BODY

NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

HERE IS A VERSE FROM

JAMES: "IS ANYONE AMONG

YOU SICK?

LET THEM CALL FOR THE

ELDERS OF THE CHURCH.

LET THEM PRAY OVER HIM,

ANOINTING HIM WITH OIL IN

THE NAME OF THE LORD."
