An unborn baby's brain was outside her body and doctors told the parents to abort, see why they chose to keep their child. Read Transcript


YOU GET SO EXCITED, AND

THEN YOU JUST GET HIT.

Andrew: THEIR BABY'S

BRAIN WAS OUTSIDE HER

BODY.

MY HEART SANK.

Andrew: AND DOCTORS

TOLD THEM TO BRACE FOR THE

WORSE.

AND HE SAID, I'VE NEVER

SEEN A CASE LIKE THIS MAKE

IT TO BIRTH.

Andrew: WHY THEY

CHOSE TO KEEP THEIR CHILD.

THAT WAS THE TIME WE

CAME TOGETHER AND JUST

MADE A DECISION.

Andrew: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

GOOD MORNING, AND WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

WITH AUGUST HERE, NETWORK

SHOWS ARE BACK IN THE

PRODUCTION, AND NEW SHOWS

ARE HOPING FOR NOVEMBER

PICKUPS, WITH DOZENS ON

THE HORIZON.

Terry: PIERCE LINK

HAS CREATED A NEW SERIES

FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY TO

ENJOY CALLED "HITTING THE

BRAKES."

MY HUSBAND IS RANDY

WILCOX, A RACE CAR DRIVER.

HE HAS MORE THAN

2.9 MILLION HITS ON

YouTube.

I LEAVING MY OLD LIFE

AND TAKING OVER THE LIFE

MY FATHER LEFT ME IN

COLORADO.

COLORADO?

WE ALL NEED TO MAKE A

FEW ADJUSTMENTS NOW THAT

WE'RE LIVING IN THE

ROCKIES.

THERE IS NO CELL PHONE

CONNECTION OUT HERE.

MOM, YOU'RE BLOCKING MY

SIGNAL.

BEING DIFFERENT FROM

ANYONE ELSE AROUND HERE IS

NOT NECESSARILY A BAD

THING.

WE THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE

NICE TO GET TO KNOW

EVERYONE WHO WILL BE PART

OF OUR NEW LIFE.

THEY USED TO REFER TO

ME AS JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE

WITH A BADGE BACK AT THE

ACADEMY.

WHEN DID YOU GUYS BUY

AN ALPACA?

I'M JUST HAPPY TO BE

HERE WITH THE THREE PEOPLE

THAT I LOVE THE MOST.

AND...

AND THAT.

Terry: AS YOU SAW,

STARS LIKE MORGAN

FAIRCHILD AND ROB

SCHNEIDER AND TIM TEBOW

WILL BE APPEARING ON THE

SHOW.

10 EPISODES AN OF SEASON ONE

HAVE ALREADY BE SHOT.

Andrew: TIM TEBOW,

ROB SCHNEIDER, AND CARROT

TOP, ALL IN ONE.

> WASHINGTON REDSKINS

CURT COUSINS FACES A BIG

CONTRACT NEGOTIATION.

THE REDSKINS WANTED TO PAY

HIM $53 MILLION AS PART OF

A NEW DEAL.

BUT HE OPTED FOR THE

FRANCHISE TAG, WHICH MEANS

HE COULD BE A FREE AGENT

NEXT SPRING.

Terry: HE IS LEANING

ON GOD TO GUIDE HIS

DECISION.

HE SAYS, FIRST OF ALL,

ULTIMATELY THIS DECISION

IS NOT ABOUT ANYTHING MORE

THAN IMPORTANTLY THAN MY

FAITH.

MY FAITH IS ULTIMATELY

DRIVING THIS DECISION.

DO I FEEL LIKE THE LORD IS

LEADING ME TO MAKE THIS

DECISION OR THAT DECISION?

AND WHERE DOES HE GIVE ME

PEACE?

HE BROUGHT ME TO D.C., AND

HE HAD A PLAN FOR ME.

HE PLACED ME IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. FOR A

REASON.

I BELIEVE THAT WITH MY

WHOLE HEART.

AND AS A RESULT, I WAS

CONTENT TO BE PATIENT AND

ALLOW TIME TO REVEAL THAT

AND TO CONTINUE TO JUST

WAIT ON THE LORD.

WOW!

Andrew: CURT IS SUCH

A STEADY GUY.

ESPECIALLY IN A FRANCHISE,

THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS,

COULD BE A BIT OF A

CIRCUS, AND HE IS SO

STEADY.

PEOPLE WILL SAY, I'M GOING

TO WAIT ON THE LORD, AND

HERE HE IS PRESENTED WITH

A $53 MILLION OPPORTUNITY,

AND ONE WOULD NORMALLY

THINK, I WAITED, AND HERE

IT IS, BUT HE IS STILL

WAITING.

Terry: I AM SURE TO

MOST PEOPLE IN THE

FRANCHISE OR JUST IN THE

WHOLE SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT

INDUSTRY THAT THEY LOOK AT

THIS AND DON'T GET IT.

BUT IF YOU'RE A PERSON OF

FAITH, TO SEE SOMEONE WHO

REALLY, AS YOU'RE SAYING,

STANDS BY WHAT THEY FEEL

IS TRUE AND WHAT THEY'RE

SUPPOSED TO BE DOING IN

THEIR HEARTS IS REALLY

REFRESHING.

Andrew: AND EVEN IN

HIS ROOKIE SEASON HE SPOKE

WITH US AND CBN, AND LET

THE WORLD KNOW I'M A

CHRISTIAN AND I FOLLOW

JESUS CHRIST.

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

> AND THE LAST FEW

YEARS, GENDER REVEALS HAVE

BECOME QUITE THE PREGNANCY

TREND.

SOME DO BOXES FILLED WITH

PINK OR BLUE BALLOONS, AND

SOME GET SUPER CREATIVE,

LIKE HAVING THE KING OF

COUNTRY MUSIC ANNOUNCE

YOUR BABY'S GENDER

HIMSELF.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

YOU DON'T KNOW?

AND IT'S IN HERE?

[CHEERING]

[APPLAUSE]

I ASSUME THAT MOM

KNOWS.

DO YOU HAVE NAMES YET?

BROOKS?

I LOVE THAT.

[CHEERING]

SO IF IT'S A BOY, IT'S

A BROOKS.

IF IT IS A GIRL, IT'S A

BROOKS, RIGHT?

I LIKE THAT.

I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU, I'M

EXTREMELY HAPPY FOR YOU.

[CHEERING]

[APPLAUSE]

IF I AM STILL ALIVE

WHEN BROOKS GOES TO

COLLEGE, WE'LL PAY FOR HER

COLLEGE.

[APPLAUSE]

[CHEERING]

I LOVE YOU.

Andrew: QUITE A

PROMISE FROM GARTH.

IN 18 YEARS, HE WILL GET A

LETTER SAYING WE'RE READY

FOR THE COLLEGE TUITION.

WESLEY AND KATIE CRAFTED

THIS SIGN THAT SAID,

WORKING ON A FULL HOUSE,

GIRL, BOY?

AND HELD IT UP THROUGH THE

CONCERT.

GARTH BROOKS SAW THE

CONCERT AND CALLED THEM UP

TO THE STAGE, AND THE REST

IS HISTORY.

FOR ME, MY WIFE AND I KNEW

THEY WERE GOING TO BE

BOYS.

FOR THE THIRD, WE DECIDED

TO WAIT AND SURPRISE

ITSELF.

THEY HELD UP MY THIRD

CHILD UPON DELIVERY, AND I

WENT, WHAT IS IT?

AND IT WAS OBVIOUSLY A

GIRL, BUT I JUST WASN'T

USED TO THAT.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: PEOPLE ARE SO

CREATIVE AND HOW THEY FIND

OUT THE GENDER OF THEIR

BABIES --

Andrew: IT IS HARD TO

TOP THAT.

Terry: THAT WILL LIVE

ON IN FAMILY HISTORY FOR A

LONG TIME TO COME.

AND WE HAVE SOME WEDDING

STORIES THAT HAVE GONE

VIRAL ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

THIS PHOTOGRAPHER SAYS A

WEDDING IN WHICH THE BRIDE

TEAMED UP WITH HER BEST

FRIEND'S BOYFRIEND TO

ARRANGE A SURPRISE

PROPOSAL AT HER RECEPTION.

INSTEAD OF TOSSING THE

BOUQUET, JESSICA TURNED

AROUND, WALKED OVER TO HER

FRIEND AND TOLD HER TO

TURN AROUND.

HER FRIEND'S BOYFRIEND WAS

WAITING ON ONE KNEE WITH A

RING FOR HER.

JESSICA SAID SHE DIDN'T

EVEN HAVE A SECOND THOUGHT

ABOUT IT.

SAYING, MY BEST FRIEND WAS

STARTING HER LOVE STORY.

I DIDN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT

THIS BEING ME GIVING UP MY

DAY.

I WANT MY FRIEND TO HAVE

LOVE.

I HAVE LOVE.

Andrew: WHAT IF THE

ANSWER WOULD HAVE BEEN NO?

Terry: THAT WOULD

HAVE BEEN A MEMORY, TOO.

Andrew: SARAH

CUMMINGS DECIDED TO TURN

HER MARITAL DISFORTUNATE

INTO A MEANS OF HELPING

THOSE IN NEED.

SHE CALLED OFF HER

WEDDING, AND WHEN THE

STRANGERS SHOWED UP FOR

DINNER, THEY WERE GREETED

WITH BOURBON-GLAZED

MEATBALLS AND TOSSED WITH

CHARDONNAY.

AND SARAH, ALONG WITH HER

SEVEN BRIDESMAIDS, MOMS

AND AUNTS, GREETED THE

GRATEFUL GUESTS ONE BY

ONE.

HOW SPECIAL.

Terry: WHAT A

WONDERFUL IDEA TO BLESS

SOMEBODY ELSE WITH THE

SCENARIO YOU PROBABLY HAD

PLANNED FOR MONTHS.

Andrew: AND I LIKE

HOW THE RITZ SAID, OKAY,

LET'S DO THIS.

Terry: AND COUPLES

ARE SPENDING NEARLY TWICE

AS MUCH THEY DID ON

WEDDING JUST 10 YEARS AGO.

IT IS A TREND THAT SOME

MONEY EXPERTS AND EVEN

PASTORS FIND TROUBLING.

HEATHER SELLS BREAKS DOWN

HOW AN EXPENSIVE WEDDING

MAY NOT BE THE BEST WAY TO

START A WEDDING.

Heather: FOR MOST

BRIDES, IT STARTS LIKE

THIS, WITH THOUSANDS OF

PICTURES TO HAD PLAN THE

PERFECT WEDDING.

IT IS DEFINITELY A LOT

OF PRESSURE.

I THINK WEDDINGS ARE JUST

A MUCH BIGGER DEAL THAN

THEY EVER USED TO BE.

IT IS NOT AS MUCH AS IT'S

TWO PEOPLE GETTING

MARRIED.

IT IS WHAT KIND OF PARTY

ARE YOU GOING TO THROW.

Heather: AND BATEMAN

ISN'T ALONE IN HER

FEELINGS.

MORE THAN ONE-THIRD OF

COUPLES FEEL PRESSURE FROM

THE MEDIA TO HAVE THAT

PERFECT WEDDING.

IT MAY BE WHY THE AVERAGE

BRIDE AND GROOM SPEND

$28,000, COMPARED TO JUST

$16,000 10 YEARS OWING.

OR WHY THEY DELAY WALKING

DOWN THE AISLE.

I AM SEEING ENGAGEMENTS

BEING GREATLY PROLONGED.

I'M SEEING PEOPLE

SEARCHING FOR THE PERFECT

VENUE, FOR THE PERFECT

TIME OF YEAR, THE PERFECT

COLORS.

Heather: THIS PASTOR

HAS WRITTEN ABOUT THE

PRESSURE COUPLES FACE TO

CREATE WHAT HE CALLS THE

PINTEREST DREAM WEDDING.

THE GOAL: HELP CHRISTIAN

COUPLES REFOCUS AND THINK

ABOUT THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE

OF THEIR WEDDING AND

MARRIAGE.

IN THE CULTURE, I THINK

WE'RE AT A PLACE WHERE OUR

IDENTITY IS NOT SO MUCH

LOOKING UPWARD TO GOD AND

WHO HE SAYS WE ARE IN THE

GOSPEL, THE GOOD NEWS THAT

WE'RE HIS SONS AND

DAUGHTERS IN CHRIST, BUT

WHO WE POSTURE OURSELVES

AS IN SOCIAL MEDIA.

Heather: AND RESEARCH

HELPS BACK UP THE IDEA OF

A FRUGAL WEDDING.

ECONOMISTS HAVE FOUND

COUPLES GOING THE $20,000

OR MORE ROUTE, DIVORCE

MORE THAN THOSE WHO SPEND

LESS THAN $10,000.

IF YOU WANT TO GO BIG,

SOCIAL SCIENTISTS

RECOMMEND GOING WITH MORE

FAMILY AND FRIENDS, NOT

NECESSARILY MORE MONEY.

THEY BELIEVE IT CAN

INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF A

HAPPY MARRIAGE.

SOCIOLOGIST BRAD WILCOX

CALLS IT THE BIG, FAT

GREEK WEDDING FACTOR.

HAVING YOUR WEDDING IN

A RELATIVELY CHEAP VENUE,

MAYBE IN A CHURCH HALL OR

SOMETHING ELSE, BUT HAVING

A LOT OF YOUR FAMILY AND

FRIENDS THERE, SEEMS TO BE

THE FORMULA FOR A GREATER

MARITAL EQUALITY.

Heather: NICKY AND

HER FIANCE FOLLOWED THIS

FORMEFORMULA WITHOUT KNOWING IT

EXISTED.

I GREW UP WITH A LOT OF

PEOPLE AROUND, AND I

COULDN'T IMAGINE HAVING

SOMETHING SMALL.

Heather: CRYSTAL,

HOWEVER, FACED A TIGHT

BUDGET.

MY PARENTS HELPED A LOT

AND WHERE THEY COULD, BUT

I ALSO DIDN'T WANT TO BE

IN DEBT AFTER I GOT

MARRIED.

Heather: SO THE

COUPLE CUT CORNERS, THEY

PICKED A CHEAP VENUE,

HIRED A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR

JUST A HALF DAY, AND BAULT

WHOLESALE FLOWERS.

THAT KIND OF THRIFTY

THINKING INSPIRED CASEY,

WHO SAYS HER MOM TAUGHT

HER ABOUT STEWARDSHIP.

AND TOGETHER THEY MADE

CENTER PIECES AND TABLE

RESERVATIONS.

FOR THEIR LARGE WEDDING,

CORY AND HER FIANCE USED A

NETWORK OF FRIENDS AND

FAMILY TO HELP KEEP COSTS

DOWN WHILE CREATING

MEMORIES.

THANKS TO VOLUNTEERS, THEY

DIDN'T HAVE TO HIRE A

MUSICIAN, A FLORIST, OR

EVEN A WEDDING PLANNER.

AFTER THE WHOLE DAY, I

HAD PEOPLE SAYING, WE LOVE

HOW YOUR WEDDING WAS

FAMILY ORIENTED.

AND I SAID, WHAT DO YOU

MEAN BY THAT?

AND THEY SAID, THERE WERE

A LOT OF PEOPLE HELPING

AND WHO WERE HAVING A

GREAT TIME.

Heather: THAT CAN

EXTEND BEYOND THE WEDDING

DAY, AND HELP THE COUPLE

EXTEND THE SEASONS OF

LIFE.

AND THE PASTOR IS STEERING

COUPLES AWAY FROM THE

PINTEREST-PERFECT EVENT.

I THINK THEY'RE

RELIEVED TO HAVE SOMEONE

TELLING THEM, YOU DON'T

HAVE TO MAKE IT ABOUT

THESE THINGS.

THE VALUE OF YOUR WEDDING

IS NOT HOW MUCH YOU SPENT

ON IT.

OR HOW MANY PEOPLE POST ON

INSTAGRAM DURING THE

RECEPTION.

THE VALUE IS THAT YOU LOVE

EACH OTHER AND GOD LOVES

YOU AND IT WAS A CHRISTIAN

WEDDING.

Heather: HEATHER

SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Andrew: THANK YOU,

HEATHER.

THAT IS GREAT COUNSEL --

Terry: YOU'RE JUST

SAYING THAT BECAUSE YOU

HAVE A DAUGHTER.

> YEARS AND YEARS AGO,

WHEN I WAS STILL A

TEENAGER, BUT ATTENDING

WEDDINGS OF PEOPLE THAT

WERE OLDER IN ME IN MY

FAMILY, IT WAS THE CHURCH

HALL AND TAKING COFFEE.

YOU WENT TO THE WEDDING,

AND THEN YOU CELEBRATED

WITH THE COUPLE AND YOU

WENT HOME.

AND THAT WAS PRETTY MUCH

IT, BUT IT WAS A BIG DEAL

IN ITS OWN WAY.

Andrew: I WASN'T

AWARE, UNTIL HEARING FROM

THE PASTORS, OF WHAT A BIG

PROBLEM WAS, AND SEEING

COUPLES GETTING SO MUCH IN

DEBT AND DELAYING

WEDDINGS.

> AN INCREDIBLE STORY IS

COMING UP.

A ROUTINE ULTRASOUND

REVEALS A BABY WITH AN

OPEN SKULL AND AN EXPOSED

BRAIN.

AND I REMEMBER MY

HUSBAND SAYING, WHAT ARE

THE CHANCES THAT SHE IS

GOING TO MAKE IT THROUGH

THIS?

IF THERE IS A

PERCENTAGE, GIVE ME A

PERCENTAGE.

AND HE IS, LIKE, NONE.

Andrew: WE'RE GOING

TO SEE HOW THEIR CHILD

BEAT THOSE IMPOSSIBLE

Andrew: ZOIE WAS BORN

WITH A REALLY RARE

CONDITION: HER SKULL DID

NOT CLOSE.

AND 40% OF HER BRAIN WAS

OUTSIDE HER SKULL UPON

DELIVERY.

DOCTORS HAD TOLD HER

PARENTS TO ABORT, BUT THEY

BELIEVED IN MIRACLES.

Reporter: SANDY

WINGER WAS SIX WEEKS INTO

HER FIRST PREGNANCY, WHEN

SHE HEARD GOD TELL HER HER

BABY WAS A GIRL AND TO

NAME HER ZOIE, WHICH MEANS

LIFE.

I THOUGHT, SHE IS JUST

GOING TO HAVE THE GOD KIND

OF LIFE, JOYFUL AND

PLAYFUL.

I HAD NO IDEA AT THE TIME

WHAT WOULD UNFOLD THE

FOLLOWING MONTHS.

Reporter: SANDY'S

HUSBAND, SHANE, REMEMBERS

AT THEIR 20-WEEK

ULTRASOUND, THE DOCTORS

SAID THERE WAS A PROBLEM.

ZOIE'S SKULL HAD NOT

CLOSED, AND 40% OF HER

BRAIN WAS OUTSIDE OF THE

SKULL.

HE COULD SEE HER SKULL

AND WHERE IT WAS OPEN AND

WHERE HER BRAIN BEGAN TO

GROW OUTSIDE OF HER HEAD,

AND A PERCENTAGE WAS

OUTSIDE.

AND MY HEART SANK.

AND SO I REMEMBER THE

TEARS JUST START TO

TRICKLE, YOU KNOW, DOWN MY

FACE.

AND THE SAME DAY THAT

YOU'RE SO EXCITED, AND

THEN YOU JUST GET HIT.

AND I REMEMBER MY HUSBAND

SAYING, WELL, WHAT ARE THE

CHANCES OF HER SURVIVING?

WHAT ARE THE CHANCES THAT

SHE IS GOING TO MAKE IT

THROUGH THIS.

AND HE SAID, IN MY

30-YEAR PROFESSION, I'VE

NEVER SEEN A CASE LIKE

THIS MAKE IT TO BIRTH.

I THINK I ASKED AGAIN,

OKAY, IF THERE IS A

PERCENTAGE, GIVE ME A

PERCENTAGE.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, NONE.

Reporter: THE DOCTOR

RECOMMENDED THEY ABORT

ZOIE, AND SANDY AND SHANE

DECIDED OTHERWISE.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO DO

IT.

WE SERVE TOO BIG OF A GOD.

LIFE, WHETHER IT IS IN THE

WOMB FOR NINE MONTHS,

EIGHT MONTHS, IT'S LIFE.

IT'S NOT OURS TO TAKE

AWAY.

SO WE BEGAN TO TALK AND

SHARE SCRIPTURES.

WE REALLY BELIEVED THAT

ZOIE MEANS LIFE.

AND WE BELIEVE THE ENEMY

TRIED TO COME AND STEAL

AND TAKE HER LIFE, AND

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

WHAT GOD'S WORD IS, THAT

CHILDREN ARE A BLESSING OF

THE LORD.

WE HAVE FAITH THAT GOD

LOVES HER, EVEN MORE THAN

ME AND MY WIFE COMBINED.

SO WE PUT OUR FAITH AND

CONFIDENCE IN HIM, DESPITE

WHAT WE FELT, DESPITE WHAT

THE DOCTOR'S OPINION WAS

OR WHAT HIS THOUGHTS WERE.

THAT, TO US, WAS THE MOST

CRITICAL TIME, I BELIEVE,

BECAUSE THAT WAS THE TIME

WE CAME TOGETHER AND MADE

A DECISION.

Reporter: FOR MONTHS

THEY HELD ON TO HOPE AND

PRAYED FOR A MIRACLE.

FAITH IS THE ONE THING

THAT PLEASES GOD.

AND SO OUR PART IS JUST

SIMPLY TO BELIEVE.

OUR PART ISN'T TO PERFORM

THE MIRACLE.

THERE IS NOTHING THAT WE

COULD DO.

THERE WAS NOTHING THAT THE

DOCTORS COULD DO.

I REMEMBER WHAT GOD

SPOKE TO ME SIX WEEKS

ALONG.

HE KNEW HER NAME WOULD BE

ZOIE FOR A REASON.

HE KNEW SHE WOULD HAVE

LIFE.

HE KNEW THE OUTCOME BEFORE

WE EVEN KNEW THE DIAGNOSIS

OR THE PROBLEM.

HE KNEW EVERYTHING THAT

WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

SO WE CLUNG ON TO THE FACT

THAT WE KNEW WHAT GOD HAD

SPOKE.

THAT HE SAID SHE WOULD

HAVE THE GOD KIND OF LIFE.

AND THE GOD KIND OF LIFE

IS JOY AND PEACE AND LIFE.

AND SO I HUNG ON TO THAT

WORD VERY TIGHTLY.

Reporter: DESPITE ALL

ODDS, ZOIE MADE IT TO

TERM.

DURING DELIVERY, ONCE MORE

THEIR FAITH WAS PUT TO THE

TEST.

THE FIRST THING I SAW

FOR ZOIE WAS HER BRAIN.

THERE WAS NO SKULL IN THE

BACK OF HER HEAD.

AND SO FOR ME, IT WAS

REALLY HARD.

I DIDN'T KNOW IF SHE WOULD

MAKE IT.

I JUST REMEMBER LOOKING

IN THAT LITTLE INCUBATOR,

AND SHE LIFTED HER LITTLE

HEAD.

AND I JUST KNEW YOU'RE

GOING TO BE FINE.

AND I DIDN'T QUESTION, IN

THAT MOMENT, WHETHER SHE

WOULD CONTINUE TO LIVE,

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN.

JUST LIFTING UP HER LITTLE

HEAD, AND SHE WAS SO

PERFECT TO ME AND SO TINY.

AND THEY HAD EVERYTHING

BANDAGED AND COVERED, BUT

I JUST KNEW.

I JUST KNEW GOD HAS HUGE

PLANS FOR YOU.

AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT

WOULD BE, EVERYTHING THAT

WOULD HAPPEN IN HER LIFE,

BUT I KNEW SHE WAS THE

MOST BEAUTIFUL BABY I HAD

EVER LAID MY EYES ON.

AND I COULDN'T WAIT TO

JUST PICK HER UP AND HOLD

HER.

Reporter: TWO DAYS

LATER, ZOIE HAD SURGERY TO

REMOVE BRAIN MATTER AND

CLOSE THE HOLE IN HER

SKULL.

JUST FIVE DAYS LATER, SHE

WAS RELEASED FROM THE

HOSPITAL.

SHANE AND SANDY SAY GOD

CONTINUED TO ANSWER

PRAYERS AND PROVIDE

HEALING AND LIFE BEYOND

WHAT ANYONE THOUGHT

POSSIBLE.

ZOIE ABSOLUTELY IS A

BLESSING.

SHE IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST

JOYS OF MY LIFE.

SHE IS NINE YEARS OLD

TODAY.

SHE IS FULL OF LIFE.

SHE IS FULL OF ENERGY.

I THANK GOD THAT WE CHOSE

TO BELIEVE.

AND THE PEOPLE THAT WE HAD

SURROUNDING US WERE PEOPLE

OF FAITH.

WHAT A MIRACLE SHE IS

AND A TESTAMENT OF GOD'S

FAITHFULNESS AND HIS

GOODNESS.

WHAT HE SAYS IS TRUE, AND

HIS WORD IS TRUE.

AND HE IS NOT GOING TO SET

YOU UP FOR FAILURE.

EVERY DAY I'M HEALED.

HE'S A GOOD GOD.

HE WANTS TO SHOW HIMSELF

BIG.

HE WANTS TO DO HUGE

THINGS.

HE IS JUST LOOKING FOR

PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO

SAY, I TRUST YOU.

Andrew: WHAT A

JOURNEY FOR THAT PRECIOUS

FAMILY.

AND WE REJOICE IN THE

POWER OF GOD.

DURING THOSE DARK MOMENTS,

WHEN THEY'RE GETTING

COUNSEL FROM EVERYONE ELSE

COUNTER TO WHAT GOD TOLD

THEM, THEY BELIEVED AND

THEY SUPPORTED EACH OTHER,

AND THEY HAD THE FAITH FOR

EACH OTHER.

AND TERRY AND I HAVE THE

PRIVILEGE OF BEING ABLE TO

LIFT UP YOUR NEEDS NOW.

WE HEAR FROM SO MANY VIA

THE TV PROGRAM AND SOCIAL

MEDIA.

PLEASE PRAY FOR US.

PLEASE PRAY FOR THE NEEDS

OF THE AUDIENCE.

AND WE WANT TO DO THAT

NOW.

WHATEVER THE JOURNEY IS

THAT YOU'RE FACING, WE

LIFT IT BEFORE THE LORD.

FATHER GOD, SO MANY ARE IN

A DARK PLACE NOW THAT THIS

FAMILY SAW THEMSELVES IN

YEARS AGO.

THEY ARE FEARFUL.

THEY ARE SEEKING YOU,

LORD, AND THEY ARE SEEKING

ANSWERS.

AND TERRY AND I, WE HAVE

HAD OUR OWN JOURNEYS,

FATHER, AND WE HAVE SEEN

YOU BE FAITHFUL TO US.

AND, LORD, WE LIFT UP THE

AUDIENCES' NEEDS NOW.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, WE

SPEAK HEALING.

YOU KNOW THE CONDITION.

YOU KNOW THE CRIES OF

THEIR HEART, FATHER GOD.

WE REBUKE THE ENEMY WHO

WISHES TO DESTROY AND

KILL.

AND WE BELIEVE IN THE

POWER OF JESUS CHRIST

BECAUSE OF THE BLOOD SHED

ON THE CROSS.

Terry: THANK YOU,

LORD.

FATHER, I JUST PRAY THAT

YOU WOULD GIVE, RIGHT NOW,

THE GIFT OF TRUST, THE

GIFT OF FAITH, GOD, TO

STAND WHEN EVERYTHING

LOOKS DIFFICULT, WHEN

EVERYTHING LOOKS LIKE IT

IS IMPOSSIBLE, TO SAY,

GOD, WE TRUST YOU.

LIGHT OF THE WORLD, COME

INTO THE DARKNESS OF THESE

SITUATIONS AS ALL OF US

LIFT OUR HEARTS BEFORE

YOU, GOD, AND BREATHE

LIFE, WE PRAY, IN JESUS'

NAME.

Andrew: AND, LORD, I

HEAR YOUR HOLY SPIRIT

SAYING, TELL THE PEOPLE

STAY STRONG; I AM WITH

THEM.

I HAVE NOT LEFT THEM.

I HAVE NOT FORSAKEN THEM.

STAY STRONG; I AM HERE.

WE TRUST YOU LORD, AND WE

LOVE, IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

> STILL TO COME ON

TODAY'S PROGRAM, AN

11-YEAR-OLD BOY WHO LOST

EVERYTHING DURING A

TYPHOON STRUGGLES WITH

FEAR.

AFTER THE TYPHOON, I

HAD NIGHTMARES.

IN MY DREAMS, I WOULD GET

WASHED AWAY AND MY FAMILY

COULDN'T FIND ME.

Terry: SEE HOW HE

WENT FROM FEARFUL TO

FEARLESS, RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: AFTER A

TYPHOON DESTROYED HIS HOME

IN THE PHILIPPINES, DANIEL

WAS TRAUMATIZED.

HIS NIGHTS WERE FILLED

WITH FEAR.

DURING THE DAY, HE MOURNED

THE LOSS OF HIS HOME, HIS

FRIENDS, AND ALL OF HIS

BELONGINGS.

AND THEN HE SAW AN EPISODE

OF "SUPERBOOK" THAT GAVE

HIM COURAGE AND HEL HOPE FOR

THE FUTURE.

Reporter: DANIEL'S

FAMILY SURVIVED A KILLER

TYPHOON THAT STRUCK THE

PHILIPPINES.

THE WAVES FROM THE

TYPHOON WERE HUGE.

I WAS SO SCARED.

I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO

DIE.

Reporter: THEY LOST

EVERYTHING, EXCEPT FOR A

FEW SURFBOARDS FROM A

FAMILY RENTAL BUSINESS.

RELIEF SUPPLIES NEVER

CAME, SO THEY ESCAPED BY

BUS TO LIVE WITH RELATIVES

IN MANILA.

THERE DANIEL STRAWK STRUGGLED

WITH FEAR AND LOSS.

I LOST ALL OF MY

THINGS, AND I LOST MY

FRIENDS.

AFTER THE TYPHOON, I HAD

NIGHTMARES.

IN MY DREAMS, I WOULD GET

WASHED AWAY.

AND MY FAMILY COULDN'T

FIND ME.

Reporter: AND HE

WRESTLED WITH A GROWING

EMPTINESS IN HIS LIFE,

TOO.

THAT'S WHEN DANIEL STARTED

WATCHING CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK."

AND HE CONNECTED WITH THE

STORY OF JOB.

WHEN WE GOT TO THE

STORY OF JOB, I SAW MYSELF

IN THE STORY.

HE LOST ALL OF HIS

POSSESSIONS AND CHILDREN.

"SUPERBOOK" SHOWED ME GOD

IS WITH US, AND HE WILL

TAKE CARE OF US.

Reporter: AFTER

WATCHING, DANIEL PRAYED

WITH HIS MOTHER TO BECOME

A CHRISTIAN.

JESUS IS MY TRUE

FRIEND.

HE IS ALWAYS THERE FOR ME.

Reporter: HE ALSO

STARTED PRAYING THAT GOD

WOULD RESTORE WHAT THEY

HAD LOST.

SHORTLY AFTER THAT, HIS

MOM GOT A NEW JOB IN A

TIRE SHOP.

THEN HIS DAD RESTARTED THE

FAMILY BUSINESS AND IS

BUILDING THEM A NEW HOME.

THEY HOPE TO MOVE THERE

SOON.

I THANK HIM FOR

EVERYTHING HE HAS GIVEN

OUR FAMILY.
