They’re personal trainers with a past and now they’re building a better body and future. Plus, a way to reverse the effects of the country’s fastest growing autoimmune disease. Read Transcript


Gordon: THEY ARE

PERSONAL TRAINERS WITH A

PAST.

NOW THEY'RE BUILDING A

BETTER BODY AND A FUTURE.

PLUS...A WAY TO REVERSE

THE EFFECTS OF THE

COUNTRY'S FASTEST GROWING

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE.

> AND THEN, AFTER A

FIGHT WITH HIS EX, HE DOVE

OUT OF A WINDOW.

I JUST WOKE UP ON THE

GROUND.

Gordon: HIS STORY ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Gordon: WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

ISIS IS FACING A MAJOR

DEFEAT.

OPPOSITION FORCES BACKED

BY THE UNITED STATES ARE

RECAPTURING THEIR CAPITAL

CITY OF RAQQA IN SYRIA.

Terry: BUT ISIS ISN'T

GIVING UP EASILY.

IT IS ISSUING A NEW CALL

FOR TERRORIST ATTACKS IN

THE UNITE UNITED STATES AND

EUROPE.

GEORGE THOMAS BRINGS US

THE STORY.

George: U.S. AND

COALITION FORCES ARE

INCREASING THE PRESSURE IN

THEIR BATTLE AGAINST ISIS

IN SYRIA.

OUR STRATEGY RIGHT NOW

IS TO ACCELERATE THE

CAMPAIGN AGAINST ISIS.

George: SECRETARY OF

DEFENSE JAMES MATTIS TOLD

CBS NEWS THAT HIS ORDER

FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES IS TO

ELIMINATE THE ISLAMIC

TERROR GROUP ONCE AND FOR

ALL.

WE HAVE ALREADY SHIFTED

FROM ATTRITION TACTICS,

WHERE WE SHIELD THEM FROM

ONE POSITION TO ANOTHER IN

IRAQ AND SYRIA, TO

ANNIHILATION TACTICS,

WHERE WE SURROUND THEM.

George: SO NOW A

MAJOR BATTLE IS UNDER WAY

AS KURDISH AND ARAB

FIGHTERS BACKED BY THE

UNITED STATES ARE CARRYING

OUT AN OFFENSIVE AGAINST

RAQQA.

FOR SEVERAL MONTHS

U.S.-BACKED U.S. FORCES

HAVE BEEN ENCIRCLING THE

STRATEGIC CITY WHICH ISIS

SEIZED IN 2014, AND HAS

USED AS A BASE TO PLAN

ATTACKS ABROAD.

UP TO 4,000 JIHADISTS ARE

REPORTEDLY DEFENDING

RAQQA, AND THE COALITION

FORCES ARE WEARING THEM

DOWN.

MATTIS SAYS ONCE THE GROUP

IS COMPLETELY SURROUNDED,

THEY'LL GO IN AND CLEAN

THEM OUT.

OUR INTENTION IS IF THE

FOREIGN FIGHTERS DO NOT

SURVIVE THE FIGHT, THEIR

RETURN HOME TO NORTH

AFRICA, TO EUROPE, TO

AMERICA, TO ASIA, TO

AFRICA KA -- WE'RE NOT

GOING TO ALLOW THEM TO DO

SO.

WE'RE GOING TO STOP THEM

THERE AND TAKE A PART OF

CALIPHATE.

George: FACED WITH

DEFEAT IN RAQQA, ISIS IS

MOVING ITS FORCES

ELSEWHERE IN THE REGION.

BUT AS ISIS FACES MAJOR

SETBACKS IN SYRIA AND

IRAQ, THE GROUP IS TRYING

TO ENCOURAGE ITS FOLLOWERS

NOT TO GIVE UP.

THE GROUP TELLS READERS TO

WORSHIP YOUR LORD UNTIL

DEATH COMES TO YOU, AND

REMINDS FIGHTERS THAT

HARDSHIPS CAUSE A HIDDEN

STRENGTH.

IT GOES ON TO SAY THAT

ISLAM NEEDS MEN WHO ARE

INCLINED TO WORK HARD,

FIND COMFORT IN PAIN AND

TOIL, WITH STRONG

RESOLUTIONS, AND THOSE WHO

REFUSE TO BE ENTANGLED BY

WEARINESS.

SO ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVE.

AN ISIS SPOKESMAN CALLED

ON SUPPORTERS TO LAUNCH

ATTACKS IN IT' THE U.S. AND

EUROPE DURING RAMADAN,

WHICH BEGAN TWO WEEKS AGO.

SINCE THEN THERE IS HAVE

BEEN 95 TERROR ATTACKS

THAT HAVE KILLED SOME

1100, INCLUDING PEOPLE IN

BRITAIN, EGYPT, IRAN, AND

THE PHILIPPINES.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: I WILL SAY IT

IS VERY REFRESHING TO HEAR

A SECRETARY OF DEFENSE SAY

OUR ROLE HERE IS TO WIPE

THEM OUT.

WE NEED TO ELIMINATE THEM.

THAT IS WONDERFUL NEWS.

AND I CERTAINLY APPLAUD

IT.

THEY ARE A GREAT EVIL, AND

IT IS TIME TO STOP PLAYING

WITH THEM.

LET'S TAKE THEM OUT AND

SHOW THE WORLD WHAT THIS

EXTREME IDEOLOGY

ULTIMATELY LEADS TO.

IT ULTIMATELY LEADS TO

DEFEAT.

> WELL, HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES,

ATTORNEY-GENERAL JEFF

SESSIONS IS APPEARING

BEFORE THE SENATE

INTELLIGENCE SUMMIT TODAY

ICOMMITTEETODAY IN THE RUSSIAN GAS.

INVESTIGATION.

John: THERE HAD BEEN

DISCUSSION WHETHER THE

HEARING WOULD BE PUBLIC OR

IN A CLOSED SESSION, BUT

ATTORNEY-GENERAL SESSIONS

HIMSELF APPARENTLY WANTED

THE DISCUSSIONS TO BE OPEN

TO THE PUBLIC.

SENATORS ARE EXPECTED TO

ASK HIM ABOUT HIS MEETINGS

WITH RUSSIAN OFFICIALS.

ANOTHER MAJOR ISSUE IN HIS

TESTIMONY WILL BE WHAT

ROLE HE PLAYED IN THE

FIRING OF JAMES COMEY.

ONE DEMOCRATIC SENATOR

POINTED OUT THAT SESSIONS

HAD RECUSED HIMSELF FROM

THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION

BUT THEN REPORTEDLY

RECOMMENDED COMEY BE

FIRED.

THE PRESIDENT SAID COMEY

WAS FIRED OVER THE RUSSIAN

INVESTIGATION, BUT THE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

OFFICIALS HAVE SAID THERE

ARE MULTIPLE REASONS WHY

COMEY WAS FIRED.

> NORTH KOREA IS THE,

QUOTE, "MOST URGENT AND

DANGEROUS THREAT TO PEACE

AND SECURITY," THAT'S THE

WARNING FROM DEFENSE

SECRETARY JIM MATTIS.

HE TOLD THE HOUSE ARMED

SERVICES COMMITTEE THAT

PYONGYANG'S CONTINUED

PURSUIT OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS

AND THE MEANS TO DELIVER

THEM HAS BEEN INCREASING.

AND HE SAID NORTH KOREA

HAS NOT STOPPED ITS

NUCLEAR DEVELOPMENT.

THE REGIME HAS PROMISED TO

BUILD A NUCLEAR MISSILE

THAT CAN REACH THE

CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES.

> WELL, WHEN THE NEXT

WAR DOES COME, WHAT WILL

U.S. WEAPONS LOOK LIKE?

IN AMERICA, HIGH-TECH

MILITARY DRONES ARE ONLY

THE BEGINNING.

THEY ARE COMPLETE WITH

ROBOTS RUNNING ON

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.

CBN'S NATIONAL SECURITY

CORRESPONDENT TAKES A LOOK

AT THE LATEST TELLING FROM TECHNOLOGY

FROM THE DEFENSE

DEPARTMENT, DESIGNED TO

KEEP AMERICA STRONGER AND

SAFER.

Reporter: IT MAY LOOK

LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF

"STAR WARS," BUT EVEN

R2-D2 COULDN'T HOLD A

CIRCUIT BOARD TO THIS GUY.

NEW ADVANCEMENTS GIVE THE

OPERATOR GREATER PRECISION

AND LET'S THE ROBOT THINK

ON ITS OWN.

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO

DESIGNATE A WAY POINT ON

AN OVERHEAD MAP ON OR

BOARD A VIDEO SCREEN, AND

THE ROBOT WILL

AUTOMATICALLY DRIVE TO

THAT WAY SCREEN.

John: CURRENTLY THE

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE HAS

THOUSANDS OF SCIENTISTS

AND ENGINEERS WORKING AT

MORE THAN 60 D.O.D. LABS

IN 22 STATES.

THEIR EFFORT?

TO GIVE US A WAR-FIGHTING

EDGE AND TO KEEP ALL

AMERICANS SAFE.

> I CAN SEE THE FIRING

COMMANDS ENCOMPASSED

BELOW.

160, 170, 180; WOW!

IT ALLOWS THE GUNNER ON

THE SHIP TO SEE THE

COMMAND ON WHEN TO FIRE.

THE GUNNER IS RECEIVING

HIS FIRE COMMANDS FROM

SOMEONE WHO IS NEXT TO HIM

ON THE RADIO, RECEIVING

THE COMMANDS FROM SOMEONE

FAR AWAY.

ANY POTENTIAL FIRING

POSITIONS OR OBSTACLES

THAT ARE UPDATED ON THAT

MAP, I SEE IT DISPLAYED ON

HERE.

John: GROUND FORCES

USE DAY AND NIGHTTIME

THERMAL IMAGERY.

I CAN CLIP THIS AROUND

A WALL.

I CAN FIRE IT FROM

OVERHEAD, AND I CAN SEE

WHERE IT IS LOOKING AND I

CAN STILL EFFECTIVELY FIRE

MY WEAPON BECAUSE OF THAT

WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY WITH

THIS DEVICE.

John: ANOTHER

POTENTIAL IDEA, LOW COST

DISPOSIBLE AIRCRAFT.

PLANES CAN BE DESIGNED FOR

SPECIFIC MISSIONS, SUCH AS

FOR WEAPONS, JAMMING RADIO

OR FINDING TARGETS.

ENGINEERS SAY THEIR LIFE

EXPECTANCY IS A LOT

SHORTER THAN THE REAL

THING, BUT CAN BE MADE

FROM A LOWER COST.

John: THE UNITED

STATES HAS CRITICIZED A

TERROR TUNNEL FOUND

UNDERNEATH TWO SCHOOLS RUN

BY THE UNITED NATIONS IN

GAZA.

IT WAS DISCOVERED BY

WORKERS FOR THE REFUGEES.

HE SAID ON TWITTER, "WE

STRONGLY CONDEMN THE

CREATION OF THESE TUNNELS,

WHICH ARE USED FOR

TERRORISM, AND RECKLESSLY

PUT AT RISK OF LIVES OF

STUDENTS AND STAFF."

AND BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

ALSO SPOKE OUT AGAINST THE

TERRORIST TUNNELS.

Through Translator:

IN THE LAST FEW DAYS, ONE

HAMAS TUNNEL WAS EXPOSED

UNDER TWO SCHOOLS IN GAZA.

HAMAS IS USING SCHOOL

CHILDREN AS HUMAN SHIELDS.

THIS IS THE ENEMY WE ARE

FIGHTING FOR MANY YEARS,

AN ENEMY COMMITTING HERE A

DOUBLE WAR CRIME: ON THE

ONE HAND IT ATTACKS

INNOCENT CIVILIANS

DELIBERATELY.

AND ON THE OTHER, IT HIDES

BEHIND CHILDREN.

John: NIKKI HALEY

WENT THROUGH A TUNNEL LAST

WEEK.

AND, GORDON, PRIME

MINISTER NETANYAHU ALSO

CALLED THE TUNNEL A WAR

CRIME.

Gordon: I WOULD AGREE

WITH THEM, THAT THIS IS AN

ACT OF TERRORISM.

USING CHILDREN AS YOUR

SHIELD IS A DOUBLE WAR

CRIME.

THIS IS THE ENEMY THAT

ISRAEL HAS FACED.

IT IS NOT NEW.

IT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR

70 YEARS, SINCE THE

FORMATION OF ISRAEL.

AND EVEN BEFORE THAT,

DURING THE BRITISH

MANDATE, THE VARIOUS ARAB

UPRISINGS WERE ALL

DESIGNED TO KILL JEWS.

THAT WAS THE INTENT OF ALL

OF THEM.

THERE HAVE BEEN VARIOUS

TIMES WHERE YOU THOUGHT

PEACE WOULD ACTUALLY

HAPPEN, BUT THEN UNDER THE

BUSH ADMINISTRATION, THERE

WERE DEMOCRATIC ELECTIONS

IN GAZA.

AND WHO DOES GAZA ELECT TO

LEAD THEM?

HAMS.

IT ELECTS A TERRORIST

GROUP IN ORDER TO LEAD

THEM.

SO THERE IS NO INTENTION

HERE OF ACTUALLY CREATING

A STATE.

THE INTENTION IS TO DRIVE

ISRAEL INTO THE SEA, TO

WIPE THEM OUT.

AND IT IS SOMETHING THAT

HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR

DECADES.

THIS ISN'T SOMETHING NEW.

THEY GLORIFY TERRORISM IN

THE WEST BANK AND IN GAZA.

THEY NAME STREETS AFTER

TERRORISTS.

THEY NAME CITY SQUARES

AFTER TERRORISTS.

AND WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND

THAT AND ACT APPROPRIATELY

IN OUR FOREIGN POLICY

TOWARDS ISRAEL, TO SAY,

NO, WE STAND WITH YOU.

WE DON'T STAND WITH

TERRORISTS.

WE DON'T STAND WITH THOSE

WHO WANT TO MURDER YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO UNDERSTAND

TODAY'S HEADLINES, I

ENCOURAGE YOU TO KNOW THE

HISTORY HERE.

AND I'VE GOT SOMETHING FOR

YOU THAT WILL HELP YOU

UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY OF

THE SIX-DAY WAR.

HOW ISRAEL CAME TO HAVE

THE WEST BANK, EAST

JERUSALEM.

WHAT THE ARAB NATIONS

AROUND SYRIA, JORDAN,

EGYPT, IRAQ, ARE ALL

SAYING THEY WANTED TO WIPE

ISRAEL OFF THE MAP, DRIVE

THE ISRAELIS INTO THE SEA.

IF YOU UNDERSTAND THIS

HISTORY, YOU'LL UNDERSTAND

TODAY'S HEADLINES.

AND THIS D.V.D., "IN OUR

HANDS: THE BATTLE FOR

JERUSALEM," CAN BE YOURS

FOR A GIFT OF $15 OR MORE.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE IT, GIVE

US A CALL: 1-800-700-7000.

OR YOU CAN ORDER ON

cbn.com.TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, MEET SOME OF THE BEST

PERSONAL TRAINERS IN

BOSTON, WHO ALSO HAPPEN TO

BE EX-CONS, AND HERE FROM

SOME OF THEIR SATISFIED

CLIENTS.

I IT REALLY IS A

LIFE-CHANGING WORKOUT.

Terry: SEE WHY THESE

TRAINERS ARE ALL PUMPED UP

ABOUT A SECOND CHANCE.

Gordon: IN BOSTON

ALONE, MORE THAN 50% OF

THE CITY'S SHOOTINGS CAN

BE TRACED TO JUST 1% OF

THE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO LIVE

THERE.

A NEW YEAR'S AGO, A FEW YEARS AGO, A TEAM OF

WEIGHTLIFTERS BEGAN

TRAINING.

KEEP YOUR CHEST TAUGHT.

THEY ARE CONSIDERED

SOME OF THE BEST IN

BOSTON.

TRAINED BY WORLD CLASS

INSTRUCTORS, THEY'RE

SOUGHT OUT BY SOME OF THE

CITY'S TOP BUSINESSMEN AND

WOMEN.

FOR THESE GUYS, THIS

CAREER ISN'T THE ONE THEY

ANTICIPATED, BUT AS WE

FOUND OUT, IT IS A JOB

THAT IS SAVING THEIR

LIVES.

IJUST ABOUT ALL OF THE

TRAINERS HERE AT INNER

CITY WEIGHTLIFTING HAVE

SPENT SIGNIFICANT TIME

BEHIND BARS.

NOW THEY HAVE A WAY TO GET

OUT OF THE CYCLE THAT KEPT

PUTTING THEM BACK IN JAIL.

I'VE BEEN IN JAIL A FEW

TIMES.

I'VE BEEN ARRESTED FOR A

LOT OF THINGS.

THE LAST TIME I DID TIME

WAS 2013.

THAT WAS MY LAST CASE, FOR

A FIREARM.

Reporter: AT THE RIPE

YOUNG AGE OF 31, CARLOS

LEMON HAS BEEN SHOT, SEEN

FRIENDS DIE, AND BEEN

ARRESTED FOR THINGS HE'S

DONE AND THINGS HE HASN'T.

HE SAYS THE VIOLENCE FROM

HIS OLD LIFE WASN'T AS

MUCH OF A CHOICE AS IT WAS

SURVIVAL.

PUTTING A GUN ON YOUR

HIP IS PART OF YOUR -- HOW

SHOULD I SAY -- YOUR

OUTFIT.

IT IS NOT LIKE A PERSON IS

WAKING UP SAYING, I'M

GOING OUT TO SHOOT

SOMEBODY.

IT IS KILL OR BE KILLED

OUT THERE.

Reporter: WHEN IT

COMES TO GETTING OFF THE

STREETS, PLENTY OF

PROGRAMS OFFER HELP BUT

NOT A REAL WAY OUT.

IT IS WHAT WE KNOW.

THAT'S OUR JOB AND OUR

HOME, ALL IN ONE.

WE DECIDE WE HAVE TO GET

IT HOW WE GET IT BECAUSE

EVERYTHING ELSE IS NOT

GOING TO WORK OUT.

THEY HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT FOOD.

THEY HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT

CLOTHES.

THEY HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT

THAT FROM AS YOUNG AN AGE

THEY CAN UNDERSTAND THOSE

CONCEPTS.

Reporter: THAT IS

JOHN FEINMAN.

ON THE SURFACE, HE SHARES

LITTLE IN COMMON WITH

SOMEONE LIKE LEMON.

BUT HE HAS A PASSION FOR

DISRUPTING WHAT LEMON SAYS

ALMOST DESTROYED HIM.

ONE ERL CHALLENGE, HOW TO

RECOGNIZE HIS DREAM OF

CHANGING LIVES THROUGH

WEIGHT TRAINING.

I THOUGHT WE COULD GET

GUYS INTO THE OLYMPICS AND

GET THEM SCHOLARSHIPS, AND

THEN WE REALIZED EARLY ON

THAT MOST OF THE STUDENTS

WE'RE WORKING WITH HAVE

BEEN SHOT.

NEARLY ALL HAVE HAD

SIGNIFICANT JAIL TIME.

THE IDEA THAT SHOWING UP

AT 3:00 TO WORK OUT

TOGETHER, COOL DOWN, STUDY

FOR HOMEWORK TOGETHER,

WHEN MOST OF OURS GUYS END

UP BEING EITHER EXPELLED

FROM SCHOOLS OR DROPPED

OUT FOR SAFETY REASONS,

WHY RIDICULOUS.

IT WOULD HAVE EXCLUDED THE

PORTION OF THE YOUNG

POPULATION WE WANTED TO

WORK WITH.

Reporter: STILL, THE

TEAM MOVED FORWARD,

KNOWING THEY STILL HAVE A

LOT TO WORK.

THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE

THIS MODEL WORK IS TO

LISTEN.

AND NOT TRY TO SOLVE EVERY

PROBLEM, BUT, INSTEAD, TO

RESPECT THE CHALLENGES OUR

STUDENTS ARE GOING THROUGH

AND BE BY THEIR SIDE.

Reporter: BY

LISTENING, THEY DISCOVERED

WAYS TO IMPROVE THEIR

PROGRAM.

FIRST, THEY LEARNED PEOPLE

WANTED A TRUE SENSE OF

COMMUNITY.

SECOND, MANY PEOPLE ON THE

STREETS LACK HOPE.

FOR MOST OF OUR

STUDENTS, THEIR SIX MONTH

OUTLOOK ON LIFE IS DEATH

OR JAIL.

SO YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT

EDUCATION OR A CAREER.

Reporter: THIS IS

WHERE WEIGHT TRAINING

MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

I.C.W. PROVIDES A CAREER

TRACK IN PERSONAL

TRAINING.

IT CREATES AN INCOME

FOR OUR STUDENTS.

AND IT HAS STARTED TO

BRIDGE SOCIAL CAPITAL.

NOT ONLY IS IT CREATING A

JOB, BUT A VAST NETWORK

FOR OUR STUDENTS TO BE A

PART OF, TO LEAN OF, TO

HELP SOLVE THE CHALLENGES

THEY'RE FACING DAY TO DAY.

AND GIVING PEOPLE AN

OPPORTUNITY FORTUNATE

PEOPLE TO SEOPPORTUNITY TO OUR PEOPLE

THE WAY THEY ARE.

I DON'T WANT YOU TO SEE

KID LIKE ME WHO IS

RUNNING, AND YOU

AUTOMATICALLY THINK HE IS

RUNNING FROM THE COPSMENT.

Reporter: SARAH

DOWNEY ORIGINALLY CAME FOR

THE WORKOUT, BUT SHE TOLD

US HOW HER PERCEPTION OF

THE WORLD CHAIMPLEGD AS

SHWORLD CHANGED AS SHEGOT TO KNOW HER TRAI NER.

THEY'RE GETTING THIS

ENTIRE NEW CAREER AND THIS

ENTRY POINT INTO THIS

WORLD THAT IS A LOT SAFER

AND A LOT MORE

ACCOMMODATING THAN ANY OF

THEM HAVE BEEN USED TO.

SO IT REALLY -- IT IS A

LIFE-CHANGING WORKOUT.

Reporter: THAT MOVED

SARAH TO MOVE HER NETWORK

TO BRING HER TRAINER OTHER

CLIENTS AND PROVIDE THEM

WITH ODD JOBS TO MAKE

EXTRA CASH.

I'VE HIRED ERIC TO DO

WORKOUTS WITH OUR

PORTFOLIO COMPANIES, AND

THEY HAVE CONTINUED TO USE

THEM.

Reporter: AS

COMMUNITIES AND NETWORKS

BECOME INCLUSIVE,

OPPORTUNITIES BECOME

ENDLESS.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS,

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS.

Gordon: AS THAT STORY

WAS RUNNING, TERRY SAID,

THIS IS INGENIUS, AND I

WOULD AGREE.

WHAT A WONDERFUL IDEA.

IT IS AMAZING WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN YOU JUST SAY, HOW CAN

I MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

HERE THEY STARTED OFF

SAYING, LET'S DO SOMETHING

FOR KIDS AFTER SCHOOL.

AND IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT,

THEY SAY, NO, THAT'S NOT

THE WAY.

WE'RE GOING TO EXCLUDE THE

VERY PEOPLE WE'RE TRYING

TO HELP.

AND SO THEY MODIFIED IT.

AND WHAT AN AMAZING THING.

IT JUST ILLUSTRATES YET

AGAIN IF YOU JUST HAVE A

HEART TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE, IF YOU JUST

SAY, HERE, I JUST WANT TO

TAKE CARE OF ONE PERSON, I

WANT TO TRY TO DO

SOMETHING, HOW GOD WILL

OPEN DOORS FOR YOU AND IT

WILL TURN INTO SOMETHING

WONDERFUL.

SO AMEN FOR THIS.

Terry: YES.

Gordon: AND YES,

INDEED, IT IS INGENIUS.

Terry: SO OFTEN WHEN

WE TRY TO SOLVE A PROBLEM,

WE'RE SO BENT ON THE

SOLUTION OF PROBLEM, WE

DON'T REALLY SEE THE

PEOPLE.

THEY TOOK TIME TO LISTEN,

TO LOOK, TO HEAR, AND TO

JUST WALK WITH THEM.

HOW GREAT.

WE NEED MORE OF THAT.

> WELL, UP NEXT, THE

ULTIMATE TOXIC

RELATIONSHIP DRIVES A MAN

TO DIVE THROUGH A WINDOW.

I END UP BREAKING MY

BACK AND SHATTERING MY

LEFT ARM, BREAKING MY

WRIST AND COLLAPSING MY

LEFT LUNG.

I JUST WOKE UP ON THE

GROUND AND ASKING GOD,

WHY?

Terry: HEAR THE

ANSWER TO HIS QUESTION

COMING UP.

Gordon: ROB DECKER

WAS A BODY BUILDER WITH A

PENSION FOR DESTRUCTIVE

RELATIONSHIPS.

THEN HE FELL IN LOVE.

AND THIS RELATIONSHIP

TURNED OUT TO BE THE MOST

TOXIC OF ALL.

SO TOXIC THAT ROB MADE A

DESPERATE EXIT, PLUNGING

HEAD-FIRST THROUGH A

WINDOW.

I NEVER REALLY TRULY

FELT LOVE OR AFFECTION IN

MY HOUSEHOLD.

THERE WAS JUST WAY TOO

MUCH ANGER, WAY TOO MUCH

PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL,

MENTAL CONFLICT IN THE

HOUSE.

Reporter: GROWING UP

WITH ABUSIVE AND SOMETIMES

ABSENT PARENTS, ROB DECKER

TRIED TO COPE ANY WAY HE

COULD.

I STARTED DRINKING AT A

PRETTY YOUNG AGE.

I THINK I WAS ABOUT 15

YEARS OLD.

FOR ME IT WAS NEVER A FUN

THING.

IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE ESCAPE

FROM EVERYTHING.

Reporter: WHILE

ALCOHOL AND EVENTUALLY

DRUGS HELPED HIM COVER IN

HIS HURT AND ANGER, IT WAS

SPORTS AND FITNESS THAT

GAVE HIM WHAT HE REALLY

NEEDED.

>

THE LACK OF AFFECTION

AND THE LACK OF LOVE IS

REALLY WHY I DRIFTED

TOWARDS FITNESS BECAUSE IN

THAT INDUSTRY, IT IS ALL

ABOUT LOOK AT ME.

Reporter: IN THE

YEARS FOLLOWING HIGH

SCHOOL, ROB WENT THROUGH

LIFE WITH NO DIRECTION OR

PURPOSEMENT.

>PURPOSE.

LIFE IN MY 20s WAS A

HUGE BLUR.

I WASN'T ABLE TO HOLD ON

TO JOBS TOO LONG.

I THINK MY TRUE MOTIVATION

WAS: DRINK AS MUCH AS I

CAN, DO AS MUCH DRUGS AS I

CAN, AND HAVE AS MUCH FUN

AS I CAN.

IT WAS BASICALLY LIKE SLOW

SUICIDE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

HE BEGAN WORKING OUT.

THAT LED TO A NUMBER OF

RELATIONSHIPS, BUT THEY

WERE SUPERFICIAL AND

SHORT-LIVED.

I WAS IN A COUPLE OF

RELATIONSHIPS THAT WERE

REALLY, REALLY GOOD, BUT

THEY WEREN'T DESTRUCTIVE

ENOUGH FOR ME.

AND I DESTROYED THOSE

RELATIONSHIPS AND HURT

SOME PEOPLE IN THE

PROCESS.

Reporter: WHEN HE WAS

ALMOST 30, ROB MET A GIRL

AND SOON FELL IN LOVE.

BUT IT TURNED BAD QUICKLY.

IT WAS EXTREMELY

DESTRUCTIVE.

THERE WAS NOTHING POSITIVE

ABOUT IT.

IT WAS MORE TEARING EACH

OTHER DOWN.

SO HER AND I BROKE UP DUE

TO ALL OF THE NEGATIVITY

IN OUR RELATIONSHIP.

Reporter: GOING

THROUGH ANOTHER BREAKUP

WAS DEVASTATING.

AND THAT'S WHEN ONE OF

MY OLD CO-WORKERS, A

FRIEND OF MINE, HAD

CONVINCEDED ME TO GCONVINCED ME TO GO TO A

BIBLE STUDY, AND I'M LIKE

WHY NOT.

AND THIS GROUP OF 10 OR 12

GUYS ASKED ME IF I WANTED

SALVATION AND IF I WANTED

TO ACCEPT THE LORD.

ABSOLUTELY.

SOMETHING IN MY HEART AND

SPIRIT KEPT TELLING ME

THIS IS THE RIGHT

DECISION.

YOU GET THIS LITTLE

TUGGING AT YOU, LIKE THIS

IS WHAT YOU NEED TO BE

DOING.

Reporter: BUT WEEKS

LATER HIS EX-GIRLFRIEND

CAME BACK.

SHE CALLED ME UP AND

TOLD ME SHE WAS SORRY FOR

EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED

BETWEEN US AND SHE REALLY

WANTED TO WORK IT OUT.

I WAS DRAWN TO HER FOR

WHATEVER REASON, AND IT

WASN'T A HEALTHY ONE.

I TURNED MY BACK ON THE

LORD, KNOWING WHAT WAS

BEST FOR ME, TO GO BACK TO

WHAT I WAS FAMILIAR WITH.

Reporter: THEIR

RELATIONSHIP WAS AS

DESTRUCTIVE AS OTHER.

THEN ONE NIGHT AT THEIR

CONDO THEY HAD AN

ARGUMENT.

AND SHE WENT TOO FAR.

SHE CALLED THE COPS AND

TOLD THEM I TRIED TO RAPE

HER AND I TRIED TO KILL

HER.

WHEN THOSE WORDS CAME OUT

OF HER MOUTH, SHE

COMPLETELY BETRAYED ME AND

TURNED HER BACK ON ME.

THAT WAS PAINFUL.

I FELT EXTREMELY BETRAYED.

AND I FELT EXTREMELY

BROKEN AND HURT AND VERY

CONFUSED, LIKE IT JUST

DIDN'T MAKE SENSE TO ME

WHATSOEVER.

HELPLESS IS PROBABLY THE

BEST WORD.

I FELT VERY HOPELESS.

IN THAT MOMENT, I WAS,

LIKE, I JUST CAN'T DO THIS

ANYMORE.

Reporter: ROB DOVE

HEAD-FIRST THROUGH THE

THIRD STORY WINDOW.

MY FOOT CLIPPED AN

YAWNING AND CHANGED MY

FALL.

I ENDED UP BREAKING MY

BACK, SHATTERING MY LEFT

ARM AND BREAKING MY WRIST

AND COLLAPSING MY LEFT

LUNG.

I JUST WOKE UP ON THE

GROUND WITH SHALLOW

BREATH, LOOKING UP AT A

BROKEN WINDOW, AND ASKING

GOD, WHY?

WHY WOULD YOU EVEN LET ME

LIVE?

I WAS IN TERRIBLE,

TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE PAIN.

Reporter: RECOVERING

FROM SEVEN SURGERIES ON

HIS BACK AND ARMS, ROB HAD

PLENTY OF TIME TO THINK

ABOUT HIS LIFE.

HERE I AM A COMPLETELY

SHATTERED MAN, AND I'M NOT

GOING ANYWHERE.

I CAN'T MOVE.

I CAN'T EVEN FEED MYSELF.

I BELIEVE THAT WAS MY

ONE-ON-ONE TIME WITH GOD.

AND HE REMINDED ME HOW

JUST A COUPLE OF MONTHS

PRIOR TO ME JUMPING OUT OF

THE WINDOW, HOW I ACTUALLY

ACCEPTED HIM TO BE MY LORD

AND SAVIOR.

AND SO HERE WE ARE.

NOW WE CAN HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP.

EVERYTHING IS OUT OF THE

WAY NOW.

NOW IT IS JUST ME AND YOU.

Reporter: THE GIRL

EVENTUALLY WITHDREW HER

ALLEGATIONS AND

DISAPPEARED FROM HIS LIFE.

AS ROB RECOVERED, HIS

PRIORITY WAS GETTING TO

KNOW GOD.

MY QUESTIONS WERE, WHY

WOULD YOU LET ME LIVE?

I NEVER HAD A GOOD

RELATIONSHIP WITH ANYONE.

BUT I CHOSE TO DRINK AND

DO DRUGS.

I CHOSE NOT TO LEAN ON

HIM.

I CHOSE NOT TO SEEK HIM

OUT.

THOSE WERE ALL MY CHOICES.

AND HE KEPT REASSURING ME

HOW GREAT MY LIFE WAS

GOING TO BE.

Reporter: WITH GOD'S

HELP, ROB KICKED THIS DRUG

AND ALCOHOL PROBLEMS.

TODAY HE SHARES THE LOVE

HE FOUND THROUGH JESUS

CHRIST WITH HIS WIFE AND

SON.

HE IS ALSO A PERSONAL

TRAINER, USING LESSONS

FROM HIS PAST TO ENCOURAGE

PEOPLE WHO FEEL THEIR

LIVES ARE HOPELESS.

I WAS USING MY TALENTS

AND MY GIFTS AND MY CHARM

FOR ALL OF THE WRONG

THINGS IN THIS LIFE.

AND I KNEW THAT GOD LOVED

ME AND THAT HE WANTED ME

HERE AND HE WANTED ME FOR

A GREATER PURPOSE THAN

WHAT I WAS PUTTING OUT

THERE.

IF YOU HONESTLY SEEK HIM,

HE WILL HELP YOU, AND I

KNOW THAT.

YOU KNOCK ON THAT DOOR,

AND HE'S GOING TO OPEN IT

AND HE'S GOING TO BRING

YOU RIGHT IN.

Gordon: IF YOU

EARNESTLY SEEK HIM, HE

WILL HELP YOU.

A LOT OF US ARE LIKE ROB.

WE GO THROUGH BAD

EXPERIENCES IN LIFE AND WE

START ASKING WHY.

ROB WENT THROUGH A VERY

EXTREME ONE, WHERE HE

TRIED TO KILL HIMSELF BY

JUMPING OUT OF A WINDOW.

AND HE WAS ASKING GOD, WHY

DID YOU LET ME LIVE?

WHY?

WHY?

WELL, THE ANSWER IS CLEAR:

HE HAS GOOD THINGS FOR

YOU.

HE HAS A PURPOSE FOR YOU.

HE HAS A DESTINY FOR YOU.

HE HAS A CALLING FOR YOU.

HE WANTS YOU TO ENJOY GOOD

THINGS.

HE WANTS TO SATISFY THE

DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.

HE WANTS TO FILL YOUR

MOUTH WITH GOOD THINGS.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS.

THAT'S HIS WILL.

AND SO WHEN YOU START

ASKING WHY, LET THAT BE

THE ANSWER, THAT GOD HAS

SOMETHING GOOD FOR YOU, IF

YOU ONLY LET HIM.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

EXACTLY WHAT ROB DID.

ASK FOR HIM TO BE IN YOUR

LIFE.

ASK FOR HIS DIRECTION.

ASK HIM TO SPEAK TO YOU.

TO SHOW YOU THE WAY THAT

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO GO.

IF YOU DO THESE THINGS, HE

WILL ANSWER.

JESUS SAID IT CLEARLY,

KNOCK AND IT WILL BE OPEN

TO YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PUT

IT IN MOTION.

KNOCK, ASK, SEEK.

AND YOU'LL HAVE THE ANSWER

THAT YOU NEED.

NOW, SOME OF YOU, YOU HAVE

NEVER PRAYED A PRAYER.

YOU HAVE NEVER ASKED JESUS

INTO YOUR HEART.

WELL, I'VE GOT GOOD NEWS

FOR YOU.

IF YOU PRAY IT RIGHT NOW,

HE'LL ANSWER.

SOME OF YOU, YOU PRAYED IT

A LONG TIME AGO.

FOR WHATEVER REASON YOU

WALKED AWAY, AND YOU'RE

WONDERING, CAN I STILL

COME BACK?

AND THE GOOD NEWS IS, YES,

YOU CAN.

THE STORY OF THE PRODIGAL

IS THE STORY FOR YOU.

HE IS WATCHING AND WAITING

FOR YOU TO TURN AND TO LET

HIM BACK INTO YOUR LIFE.

FOR SOME OF YOU, YOU SAY

YOU'RE CHRISTIAN, BUT

THERE ARE THINGS IN YOUR

LIFE THAT YOU KNOW AREN'T

PLEASING TO GOD, THEY

AREN'T EVEN PLEASING TO

YOU, AND YOU'RE WONDERING,

AM I RIGHT WITH GOD?

WELL, THIS PRAYER CAN BE

FOR YOU, TOO.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

TURN.

HE SAYS, IF WE ARE

FAITHFUL, IF WE DO OUR

PART OF CONFESSING OUR

SINS, HE WILL BE FAITHFUL

TO CLEANSE US FROM ALL

UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

ALL.

YOU CAN HAVE THAT.

YOU CAN HAVE IT TODAY.

SO IF THIS IS FOR YOU, BOW

YOUR HEAD.

LET'S PRAY A PRAYER

TOGETHER AND LET JESUS DO

ALL THE REST.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT,

JUST SAY HIS NAME.

JESUS, YOU KNOW THE THINGS

THAT I'VE DONE WRONG, AND

I ASK RIGHT NOW THAT YOU

WOULD FORGIVE ME, THAT YOU

WOULD CLEANSE ME FROM ALL

UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

I TURN FROM IT, AND I TURN

TO YOU.

AND I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE.

I WANT THE RIGHTEOUSNESS

AND PEACE AND JOY THAT

COMES FROM THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

SO, JESUS, HEAR MY PRAYER.

TODAY I KNOCK ON YOUR

DOOR.

I ASK THAT YOU OPEN AND

COME INTO MY LIFE.

MAKE ME NEW AGAIN, FOR I

ASK IT IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A

BAPTISM IN YOUR LOVE.

I ASK THAT YOU FILL THEM

TO OVERFLOWING WITH YOUR

PRESENCE, YOUR MERCY, AND

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: HOS HOSHIMOTO, YOU

MAY NOT HAVE HEARD OF THIS

DISEASE, BUT IT CURRENTLY

AFFECTS MORE THAN

35 MILLION AMERICANS, AND

THAT INCLUDES ONE IN FIVE

WOMEN.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter:

DR. ISABELLA WENTZ WAS 27

WHEN SHE WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH THE THYROID DISORDER.

SHE IS A PHARMACIST, AND

MADE IT HER LIFE'S MISSION

TO LEARN HOW TO STOP THE

ATTACKS ON HER BODY.

I FOUND THAT SIMPLE

LIFESTYLE CHANGES, AND

DIET IN PARTICULAR, CAN

HOLD A KEY TO REBALANCE

THE AUTOIMMUNE PROCESS,

HELPING YOU GET TO THE

ROOT CAUSE OF YOUR

CONDITION.

Reporter: IN HER

BOOK, "HOSHIMOTO'S

PROTOCOL," DR. WENTZ

BELIEVES WE CAN REVERSE

OUR SYMPTOMS IN 90 DAYS.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

ISABELLA WENTZ.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HAVING ME.

Terry: TELL US WHAT

THIS IS AND WHERE THE

CRAZY NAME CAME FROM.

HOS HOSHIMOTO IS A VERY

COMMON CONDITION AFFECTING

28% OF THE POPULATION OF

THE UNITED STATES.

Terry: WOW.

IT WAS FIRST DISCOVERED

ABOUT A HUNDRED YEARS AGO,

AND IT WAS NAMED AFTER A

JAPANESE PHYSICIAN WHO

DISCOVERED IT.

Terry: WITH THOSE

NUMBERS, WHY DON'T WE HEAR

MORE ABOUT IT?

TESTING.

DOCTORS ARE NOT DOING THE

RIGHT KIND OF TESTS.

PEOPLE ARE TOLD THAT

THEY'RE CRAZY, FALT FAT, OR

LAZY, WHEN THEY'RE

ACTUALLY STRUGGLING WITH

THEIR THYROID.

Terry: THERE ARE SO

MANY AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES

TODAY.

HOW DID YOU KNOW WHEN

YOU -- YOU WERE ONLY 27

YEARS OLD WHEN YOU WERE

DIAGNOSED, BUT HOW DID YOU

KNOW THIS IS WHAT YOU HAD?

TESTING.

THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO

IS GET TESTED FOR THE

CONDITION.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC MARKERS

IN THE BLOOD THAT CAN BE

FOUND THAT RECOGNIZE IF

YOUR BODY HAS STARTED TO

ATTACK THE THYROID GLAND

AND TREATED IT AS A

FOREIGN INVADER.

Terry: SO YOUR OWN

IMMUNE SYSTEM BEGINS TO

ATTACK THE THYROID.

AND WHAT THINGS WERE

PRESENT IN YOUR LIFE THAT

CAUSING THAT TO HAPPEN?

FOR ME, ONE OF THE

BIGGEST SYMPTOMS WAS

FATIGUE.

SO I WAS SLEEPING FOR 12

HOURS A NIGHT.

Terry: WOW, AND STILL

FEELING TIRED?

STILL FEELING TIRED.

HAVING A HARD TIME GETTING

OUT OF BED.

I WAS LOSING HAIR.

I WAS HAVING PANIC

ATTACKS.

MY MOOD WAS OFF.

MY MENSTRUAL CYCLE WAS

OFF.

I HAD CARPAL TUNNEL IN

BOTH ARMS.

PEOPLE WILL GAIN WEIGHT.

A LOT OF TIMES WOMEN ARE

MISDIAGNOSED WITH

FERTILITY ISSUES AND

DEPRESSION, AND ALL SORTS

OF SYMPTOMS, AND THEY'RE

TOLD IT IS ALL IN THEIR

HEAD OR THEY'RE JUST

GETTING OLDER, WHEN IN

FACT THEY ACTUALLY HAVE A

THYROID CONDITION.

Terry: IF THE NUMBERS

ARE WHAT THEY ARE,

ISABELLA, WHY -- IT SEEMED

LIKE AS I WAS READING YOUR

BOOK, LIKE YOU HAD TO TAKE

THE BULL BY YOUR HORNS AND

DEFINE THIS FOR YOURSELF

AND THEN SORT OF DECIDE

THAT THIS IS WHAT IT WAS,

AND THEN WE'LL GET TO

TREATMENT IN A MINUTE.

BUT WHY ISN'T IT MORE

OFTEN WHAT IS DIAGNOSED

FOR PEOPLE?

SO THERE IS THIS

DIAGNOSTIC TEST KNOWN AS

THE T.H.A. TEST.

IF YOU GO TO YOUR

CONVENTIONAL DOCTOR AND

SAY, I THINK MY THYROID

MAY BE OFF, THAT'S WHAT

THEY'LL TEST.

UNFORTUNATELY THIS NUMBER

ISN'T ALWAYS INDICATIVE

FOR AT LEAST 10 TO 15

YEARS AFTER WE HAVE HAD

THIS DECISION.

SO WE CAN HAVE THE BODY

ATTACKING THE THYROID

GLAND AND WE CAN HAVE MOOD

SWINGS, WEIGHT GAIN AND

FATIGUE, AND YET THE

T.H.A. NUMBER CAN BE

NORMAL FOR 10 OR 15 YEARS.

THERE ARE THYROID ANTIBODY

TESTS.

THEY'LL BE ELEVATEDED FOR

MANY, MANY YEARS AND CAN

UNCOVER THYROID DISEASE IN

THE EARLY STAGES SO WE CAN

PREVENT POTENTIALLY A

LIFETIME OF ALL OF THESE

SYMPTOMS AND MEDICATIONS

AND EVEN HOSPITALIZATIONS.

INTERPRETE Terry: YOU'RE 27

YEARS OLD AND YOUR A

PHARMACIST, AND SOME WOULD

THINK YOU WOULD TAKE

MEDICATION FOR THIS.

BUT YOU DECIDED TO TAKE A

DIFFERENT ROUTE.

I WAS SO EXCITED WHEN I

WAS DIAGNOSED, FINALLY I

HAVE A NAME.

AS A PHARMACIST, I WAS

EXCITED TO START THE

MEDICATIONS.

BUT THE MEDICATIONS DIDN'T

HELP THAT MUCH.

I WENT FROM SLEEPING FROM

12 HOURS TO 11 HOURS A

NIGHT.

AND THE MEDICATIONS DIDN'T

ADDRESS THE UNDERLYING

ROOT CAUSE AND ALL OF THE

DIFFERENT IMBALANCE THAT

LED MY BODY TO ATTACK THE

THYROID GLAND IN THE FIRST

PLACE.

SO I WANTED TO FIGURE OUT

IF THERE WAS ANYTHING I

COULD DO TO MAKE MYSELF

FEEL BETTER, AND

POTENTIALLY REVERSE THE

CONDITION, AND THAT'S HOW

I BECAME A HUMAN GUINEA

PIG.

Terry: ONE OF THE

GREAT THINGS ABOUT ALL OF

THE WORK YOU'VE DONE IN

YOUR BOOK, YOU ARE JUST AT

HEART A RESEARCHER.

YOU LIKE TO KNOW AND

UNDERSTAND AND DIG THROUGH

ALL OF THESE THINGS FOR

THE REST OF US, AND WE

WOULD LIKE TO KNOW SOMEONE

LIKE YOU.

BUT WHAT DID YOU DECIDE

ABOUT TREATMENT OF THIS

AND THINGS THAT COULD BE

DONE TO TREAT THE

SYMPTOMS?

I REALIZED, AFTER

WORKING ON MY OWN HEALTH,

AND WORKING WITH NUMEROUS

PEOPLE WITH THE CONDITION,

THAT THERE WERE VERY

FUNDAMENTAL THINGS THAT

EVER PERSON CAN DO TO TAKE

BACK THEIR HEALTH.

AND REALLY FOCUSING ON OUR

OWN BODY'S HEALING

EXAICTS.

CAPE

CAPABILITIES.

HELPING THE BODY WITH

DETOXIFICATION, AND OUR

STRESS RESPONSE.

AND A LOT OF THE

INTERVENTIONS ARE FOCUSED

ON NUTRITION.

Terry: IT COMES BACK

TO FOOD AND WHAT WE PUT IN

OUR BODIES.

I LIKE TO CALL IT FOOD

PHARMACOLOGY.

Terry: YOU MENTIONED

THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM.

AND THERE IS ONE THING

THAT ALMOST EVERYONE WHO

DEALS WITH THESE ISSUES --

A COMMON THREAD THAT RUNS.

WHAT IS IT?

EVERY SINGLE CASE OF

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE AND

EVERY CASE OF THYROID

CASE, 99% OF THE TIME, IS

GOING TO BE TO AUTOIMMUNE

DISEASE.

HAVING THE RIGHT GENETIC

PREDIPREDISPOSITION.

SO EVERY CASE OF THYROID

DISEASE ACTUALLY HAS THIS

INTESTINAL DIGESTIVE

COMPONENT.

Terry: WHAT DO YOU

MEAN WHEN YOU SAY THAT?

A LOT OF TIMES WHAT

WE'LL SEE IS PEOPLE WITH

THYROID DISEASE WILL HAVE

CONSTIPATION, DIARRHEA --

THEY'RE NOT PROPERLY

ABSORBING NUTRIENTS FROM

THEIR FOOD.

AND THEY'RE NOT ABLE TO

PRODUCE THYROID HORMONES.

THEY MAY PICK UP VARIOUS

INFECTIONS, OR THEY GET

FOOD SENSITIVITIES.

Terry: SO WHAT DID

YOU CHANGE IN YOUR DIET?

I DID QUITE A FEW

DIFFERENT THINGS.

THESE ARE THINGS FOUND IN

MY RESEARCH TO SUPPORT

ALMOST 90% OF PEOPLE WITH

THYROID DISEASE.

THE NUMBER ONE THING WAS

GETTING OFF OF GLUTEN.

88% OF PEOPLE FEEL

SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER, EVEN

WHEN THEY DON'T HAVE

CELIAC DISEASE.

BECAUSE THYROID DISEASE

MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT TO

DIGEST THINGS.

GETTING OFF OF DAIRY.

GETTING OFF OF SOY, WHICH

CAN BE INFLAMMATORY FOR

THE THYROID GLAND, AS WELL

AS PROCESSED FOOD AND

PROCESSED SUGARS.

Terry: SO MUCH

MISDIAGNOSING OF PEOPLE

WHO ARE STRUGGLING WITH

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.

IF YOU THINK THAT YOU

MIGHT HAVE SOME OF THE

SYMPTOMS THAT ISABELLA HAS

BEEN TALKING ABOUT, SHE

HAS SOME WONDERFUL ANSWERS

FOR YOU.

HER BOOK IS CALLED "HOSH

"HOSHIMOTO'S PROTOCOL."

AND WE HAVE A WEB

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH

ISABELLA ON

Facebook.com/700club.

ENJOY THE BOOK.

GREAT TO HAVE YOU HERE,

ISABELLA.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME.

Terry: COMING UP,

DALE SAYS, "GORDON, AT THE

END OF "IN OUR HANDS," YOU

MENTIONLIED THAT THE

GENTILE TIMES HAVE ENDED.

IF THE GENTILE TIMES HAVE

ENDED, WHY IS THE KING OF

THE NORTH, AS MENTIONED IN

DANIEL, STILL AROUND?"

STAY TUNED.

GARD IS GOINGORDON IS GOING TO ANSWER

Gordon: MEREIA I MARIA IS A

WIDOW WHO IS SUPPORTING

HER YOUNG SON AND ELDERLY

PARENTS.

SEVERE FLOODING AND

MUDSLIDES IN THEIR TOWN

RUINED ALL OF THE FAMILY'S

POSSESSIONS.

THEN THEIR SITUATION

BECAME EVEN MORE DESPERATE

WHEN MARIA AND HER SON HAD

TO BEG FOR WATER BY THE

SIDE OF THE ROAD.

Reporter: WHEN THE

FLOODWATERS CAME TO HER

HOUSE, MARIA WATCHED FROM

HER ROOF AS ALL OF HER

EARTHLY POSSESSIONS WERE

DESTROYED.

Through Translator:

SO MANY THINGS WERE

DESTROYED.

THE ONLY THING WE COULD DO

WAS SAVE OURSELVES.

Reporter: TORRENTIAL

RAINFALL ACROSS PERU OVER

THE PAST FEW MONTHS HAS

LED TO SEVERE FLOODING AND

MUDSLIDES, LEAVING TENS OF

THOUSANDS WITHOUT POWER,

RUNNING WATER AND OFTEN

WITHOUT EVEN A PLACE TO

SLEEP.

MARIA, HER NINE-YEAR-OLD

SON AND ELDERLY PARENTS

NOW SLEEP ON THE FLOOR

SINCE THEIR BEDS WERE

WASHED AWAY BY THE RIVER.

Through Translator:

SOMETIMES YOU CAN'T GO ON

ANYMORE.

BUT THEN I THINK OF MY

SON.

HE IS THE REASON I LIVE.

AND I THINK, I HAVE TO

KEEP FIGHTING FOR HIM.

Reporter: THE SOLE

PROVIDER FOR HER FAMILY

SINCE HER HUSBAND DIED

FOUR YEARS AGO, MARIA

TRIED TO PICK UP THE

PIECES AFTER THE WATER

SUBSIDED AND KEEP HER

FAMILY ALIVE.

WITH NO SOURCE OF CLEAN

WATER, THEY WERE FORCED TO

BEG ON THE SIDE OF THE

ROAD, HOPING SOMEONE WOULD

BRING THEM SOME WATER TO

DRINK.

Through Translator:

CARS PASSED BY AND WE

WOULD SAY, WATER, WATER,

BUT THEY WOULDN'T GIVE US

ANY.

THEN SOME PEOPLE FROM CBN

FOUND US WITH OUR BUCKETS,

AND THEY SAID, LET'S GO TO

THE CHURCH.

THERE IS WATER THERE.

Reporter: CBN HAD

ARRIVED EARLIER THAT DAY.

AT A NEARBY CHURCH WITH

INSTALLED WATER PURIFYERS,

WHICH CREATED THOUSANDS OF

GALLONS OF DRINKING WATER

FOR THIS DEVASTATED

COMMUNITY.

AFTER MARIA AND HER FAMILY

RECEIVED SOME WATER, WE

HEARD ABOUT THRIR

SITUATIOTHEIRSITUATION AND HOW THEIR

BEDS HAD BEEN DESTROYED.

SO WE DECIDED TO DO

SOMETHING MORE FOR THIS

HARD-WORKING MOTHER AND

HER PARENTS.

CBN PROVIDED THEM WITH

BEDS, INSECT REPELLENT,

AND AN IN-HOME WATER

PURIFYING.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING

US.

THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS

YOU.

Reporter: WITH ONE

LESS THING TO WORRY ABOUT,

MARIA CAN NOW FOCUS ON

GETTING HER FAMILY BACK ON

THEIR FEET AND MOVING

FORWARD.

Through Translator: I

AM ALWAYS THINKING, GET

THE THINGS WE NEED AND

KEEP GOING.

THIS WILL BE ENOUGH FOR US

BECAUSE I AM GOING TO WORK

EVEN HARDER TO BE ABLE TO

COME OUT OF THIS.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

YOU ARE GOING TO BE VERY

BLESSED.

> WELL, WE'LL BE RIGHT

BACK WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: TIME TO ANSWER

SOME OF THE E-MAIL YOU

SENT IN.

THIS FIRST ONE COMES FROM

DALE WHO SAYS, "GORDON, AT

THE END OF THE "IN OUR

HANDS" MOVIE, YOU SAY THE

END OF GENTILES HAVE

HAPPENED.

THE KING OF THE NORTH IS

DESTROYED JUST BEFORE

MICHAEL STANDS UP IN

DANIEL 12: 1.

AND IF THE TWO-FOLD

PROPHECY IN DANIEL 8: 13

ABOUT DANIEL'S PEOPLE

GETTING THE TEMPLE AND

THEIR ARMY BAB WAS

FULFILLED IN THE SIX-DAY

WAR, IS IT TRUE THEY LOSE

IT THE SECOND TIME IN THE

NORTH?"

I'M GOING TO BREATHE NOW.

Gordon: DALE, FOR

ONE, I DIDN'T SAY THAT THE

END OF THE GENTILES HAS

COME.

THAT JERUSALEM WOULD BE

TRAMPLED UNDER THE FOOT OF

THE GENTILES UNTIL THE

TIME OF THE GENTILES ARE

FULFILLED.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THEY'RE

ENDED.

I'M A GENTILE, AND I

HAVEN'T ENDED.

I ASSUME YOU'RE A GENTILE

AND YOU HAVEN'T ENDED,

EITHER.

BOTH GENTILES AND JEWS

WILL BE ON THE EARTH WHEN

JESUS COMES BACK.

THAT'S NUMBER ONE.

TO GET DEEP INTO DANIEL,

THERE IS A SCHOOL OF

THOUGHT THAT SAYS DANIEL'S

PROPHECY ABOUT THE TEMPLE

AND THE ABOMINATION OF

DISLATIODISOLATION WAS FILLED

BEFORE CHRIST AND HIS

PROPHECY THEN OF CHRIST,

THAT HE WOULD BE CUT OFF

FROM THE PEOPLE, HAS

ALREADY BEEN FULFILLED --

YOU CAN TAKE IT BOTH WAYS.

I WON'T GET ANY DEEPER

THAN THAT.

WE'RE NOT ENDED.

Terry: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "HEBREWS 11: 6 SAYS

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE

GOD WAS THE FAITH, AND HE

REWORDREWARDS THOSE WHO CLEARLY

PLEASE HIM.

WHAT TYPE OF FAITH IS THIS

TALKING ABOUT, AND HOW DOO

YOU SINCERELY SEEK HIM?"

Gordon: WHAT WOULD

YOU DO WITH A FRIEND WHO

NEVER BELIEVED YOUR WORD,

AND WOULD SAY, YOU'LL HAVE

TO PROVE IT TO ME FIRST

BEFORE I'LL BELIEVE YOU.

THAT'S WHAT THIS VERSE

MEANS, JUST BELIEVE GOD.

WHEN HE TELLS YOU

SOMETHING IN HIS WORD,

JUST BELIEVE IT.

WHEN YOU DO, IT PLEASES

HIM.

JUST LIKE IT PLEASES OTHER

PEOPLE YOU'RE AROUND WHEN

THEY TAKE YOU AT YOUR

WORD.

DON'T MAKE IT VERY

COMPLICATED.

THE GOSPEL IS VERY SIMPLE.

THAT VERSE IS VERY SIMPLE.

> WE LEAVE YOU TODAY

WITH THESE WORDS FROM

PHILIPPIANS: "FOR IT IS

GOD WHO WORKS IN YOU, BOTH

TO WILL AND TO DO FOR HIS

GOOD PLEASURE."
