Andrew: TWO DAYS OLD,

AND FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE.

HUNTER CANNOT LIVE WITH

THIS MASS.

Andrew: BUT HE WAS

JOINED IN BATTLE.

THE CIRCLE OF PRAYERS

WITHIN HOURS WAS

OVERWHELMING.

EVERY ONE OF THOSE PRAYERS

MATTERED.

Andrew: SEE HOW THIS

TUMOR VANISHES.

SHE HAD A STRANGE LOOK

ON HER FACE.

SOMETHING HAPPENED.

Andrew: PLUS, ARE YOU

PLANNING A TRIP?

LEARN ABOUT HIGH-RISK

TRAVEL TRAINING.

I FORGOT IN A LOT OF

WAYS THAT IT WAS JUST

TRAINING.

IT FELT REAL.

Andrew: ALL ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

GOOD MORNING, AND WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

HERE IS "STUDIO 5" HOST

EFREM GRAHAM WITH THIS

WEEK'S TOP FIVE TRENDING

STORIES.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

FIVE...

RACISM IS REAL, CHURCH.

IT IS A SIN AND IT IS NOT

OK.

Efrem: CITY CHURCH

PASTOR JUDAH SMITH IS

AMONG A CHORUS OF

CHRISTIAN LEADERS SPEAKING

OUT AGAINST RACISM,

FOLLOWING THESE IMAGES OF

THE TRAGIC EVENTS IN

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA.

RACISM IS NOT

POLITICAL.

IT IS SPIRITUAL.

AND OUR SILENCE IS NOT AN

OPTION.

WE'VE STARTED THE

CONVERSATION IN THIS

CHURCH, AND IT MUST

CONTINUE.

Efrem: OTHERS TOOK TO

SOCIAL MEDIA, POSTING

CHALLENGES FOR THEIR

FOLLOWERS TO RISE UP.

THE EVIL OF RACISM WILL

NOT MERELY GO AWAY, AND WE

CANNOT, BEFORE GOD, GO

SILENT.

THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK,

BUT DO NOT FAIL TO SPEAK.

CAN I GET AN AMEN.

Efrem: AMEN.

> AT NUMBER FOUR...

*

* OH, MUCH MORE THAN THIS,

I DID IT MY WAY *

Efrem: ...THE KING OF

ROCK AND ROLL AND THE KING

OF KINGS COME TOGETHER IN

A NEW OFFER FROM THE

MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE.

ELVIS FANS CAN READ THE

BIBLE AND SEE PERSONAL

NOTES ELVIS LEFT BEHIND ON

THE PAGES OF HIS OWN

BIBLE.

* I DID IT MY WAY

Efrem: AT NUMBER

THREE...TIM TEBOW GOES THE

WAY OF THE FRESH PRINCE OF

BELAIRE AND TRIES OUT

HISTORHISACTING CHOPS.

HE WILL GUEST STAR IN THE

SOAP OPERA, "HILTON HEAD

ISLAND."

THE GOAL IS NOT TO HAVE

MONEY.

THE GOAL IS TO CHANGE

LIVES.

Efrem: HE JOINS STARS

DONNA MILLS AND ANTONIO

SABATO, IN THE FAITH-BASED

SOAP OPERA SCHEDULED FOR

RELEASE THIS FALL.

> AT NUMBER TWO...

LIONEL RICHIE TEAMING

WITH MARIAH CAREY.

Efrem: AND THE

OPENING ACT FOR THE "ALL

THE HITS" TOUR...

*

Efrem: ...IS

CHRISTIAN ARTIST TORAN

WELLS, WHO SAYS HIS GOAL

IS TO INVADE THE TOUR WITH

GOD'S LOVE.

*

GOD, YOU GIVE AND TAKE

AWAY EVERY JOY AND EVERY

PAIN *

Efrem: WELLS IS A

FORMER FRONTMAN FOR THE

GROUP "ROYAL TAYLOR."

> AT NUMBER ONE...

EVERYTHING THAT

SURROUNDS JESUS IS

ELECTRIC.

Efrem: ...FUNNY MAN

JIM CARREY IS AGAIN

TALKING ABOUT JESUS.

I DON'T KNOW IF JESUS

IS REAL, IF HE LIVES, I

DON'T KNOW WHAT IF HE IS

HERE -- I WANTED YOU TO

HAVE THE FEELING, WHEN YOU

LOOKED IN HIS EYES, THAT

HE WAS ACCEPTING OF WHO

YOU ARE.

I WANTED HIM TO BE ABLE TO

STARE AT YOU AND HEAL YOU,

FROM THE PAINTING.

Efrem: THE MAN BEHIND

THE CHARACTERS IN "THE

GRINCH," "DUMB AND

DUMBER," OPENS UP IN THIS

NEW DOCUMENTARY SHORT

EVERY RACE IMAGINES

JESUS AS THEIR OWN.

Andrew: EFREM, IT IS

GOOD TO HAVE YOU HERE.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

CHARLOTTESVILLE, AND WE

WOULD EXPECT OUR PASTORS

TO SPEAK OUT, AND I WONDER

IF IT IS NOT JUST GOING TO

BE A PASSING SUBJECT.

Efrem: THAT'S WHAT I

WAS HOPING.

HIS CHURCH HAS BEEN

TALKING ABOUT IT FOR MORE

THAN A YEAR.

WE HAVE HEARD LE CRAE

TALKING ABOUT THIS FOR

YEARS, ACTUALLY.

AND THAT'S THEIR CALL.

OKAY, WHEN THIS TRAGEDY

FADES FROM THE HEADLINES,

WHICH WE KNOW IT WILL,

LET'S NOT STOP TALKING

ABOUT IT.

LET'S MAKE THIS A

CONVERSATION BECAUSE IT IS

DEFINITELY SOMETHING WE

NEED TO TALK ABOUT, AND WE

NEED MORE PEOPLE TO SPEAK

OUT AND SPEAK AGAINST IT,

AND REALIZE THAT HE SAID

RACISM IS NOT JUST STRONG,

BUT IT IS A SIN AND IT IS

A SPIRITUAL BATTLE.

Andrew: RACISM, THE

TOP IN THE CHURCH IS KIND

OF LIKE MONEY, LET'S NOT

SPEND TOO MUCH TIME ON IT.

Efrem: ABSOLUTELY.

IT IS ONE THAT I KNOW CAN

BE UNCOMFORTABLE,

ESPECIALLY WHEN WE TALK

ABOUT DIVERSE LEADERSHIP

IN THE CHURCH.

THEY MAY FEEL LIKE THEY

DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT THING

TO SAY, BUT DO NOT SAY

ANYTHING.

JUDAH SMITH SAID IT WELL, IT WELL

WHEN HE SAID, THINK ABOUT

WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY, BUT

DO NOT SAY NOTHING.

Andrew: AND JIM

CARREY IS SAYING, I DON'T

KNOW IF I BELIEVE IN

JESUS, IF HE EVEN LIVED,

BUT I DESIRE TO PAINT HIM.

Efrem: AND IN THE

DOCUMENTARY, HE IS TALKING

ABOUT HIS STRUGGLES IN

LIFE AND HOW OBSESSED HE

WAS IN PAINTING YEARS AGO

TO THE POINT THAT HIS HOME

WAS COVERED IN PAINTINGS.

SO AS HE WAS STRUGGLING

WITH DEPRESSION, LOSING A

GIRLFRIEND, BEING SUED --

YOU NAME IT, ALL OF THESE

TRAGEDIES GOING ON IN HIS

LIFE, HE FELT LIKE, WHAT

CAN I DO?

AND HE DECIDED TO START

PAINTING AGAIN.

AND IN PAINTING, HE FOUND

HIMSELF DRIFTING AND

PAINTING WHAT HE BELIEVES

ARE POSSIBLY IMAGES OF

JESUS CHRIST.

CERTAINLY QUESTIONING

WHETHER OR NOT JESUS

EXISTED, BUT HE IS TALKING

ABOUT THE JESUS HE WOULD

WANT TO EXIST.

AND I REALLY FEEL HE IS

REACHING OUT.

I THINK THAT IS WHY HE

EVEN SPOKE TO THOSE

INMATES.

THAT INMATE PROGRAM IS RUN

BY A POLICBY A PRIEST WHO CERTAINLY

BELIEVES IN JESUS CHRIST.

AND HE BELIEVES THAT

SUFFERING CAN LEAD TO

SALVATION.

SO IF HE IS NOT THERE YET,

HE IS CERTAINLY ON A PATH

AND LOOKING TO CHRIST FOR

SOME ANSWERS.

Andrew: AND HE SAID,

YOU CAN SEE EVERY RACE IN

THE FACE OF JESUS.

Efrem: PERFECT.

WE NEED TO REALIZE JESUS

CAME FOR US ALL.

AND THAT REFLECTING AND

DEMONSTRATING AND ACTING

IN HIS LOVE IS TRULY WHAT

WILL CHANGE THIS WORLD.

Andrew: ELVIS

PRESLEY'S BIBLE NOW BEING

USED -- HIS PERSONAL

NOTES -- WHAT IS GOING ON?

Efrem: I HAVE NOT

BEEN ABLE TO READ THE

NOTES.

I'VE SEEN SOME OF THE

SCRIBBLE.

I THINK IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

ELVIS, IN TERMS OF BEING A

MAN OF FAITH, NEVER LOST

THE FAITH.

HE WAS PASSIONATE ABOUT

THE PSALMS.

AND IF YOU GET THE "U"

VERSE BIBLE APP, YOU CAN

READ THROUGH SOME OF HIS

FAVORITE PASSAGES, AS WELL

AS YOUR OWN.

AND YOU CAN DECIPHER SOME

OF THE NOTES.

THE KING OF KINGS AND THE

KING OF ROCK AND ROLL.

Andrew: AND A

GENTLEMAN WHO SEEMS TO

HAVE AN AWFUL LOT OF

TALENT, TIM TEBOW.

HE IS STILL TRYING TO MAKE

IT AS A BALLPLAYER, AND

NOW AN ACTOR.

Efrem: HE IS GOING TO

ACT, AND HE IS GOING TO

ACT IN THE DAYTIME SOAP

OPERA "HILTON HEAD

ISLAND."

AND IT WILL BE RELEASED IN

THE FALL.

I'LL BE ONE TO WATCH THIS

ONE.

LOVE TIM TEBOW, OF COURSE,

AND LOVE HIS PASSION, BUT

TO SEE HIM ACTING IN A

DAYTIME SOAP OPERA IS

GOING TO BE FUN.

THE SERIES IS GOING TO BE

MAYBE 22 EPISODES.

AND IT SOUNDS LIKE HE IS

GOING TO HAVE AT LEAST A

FEW OF THEM.

Andrew: YOU CAN'T PUT

HIM IN A BOX.

Efrem: NO.

SPORTSCASTER, YOU NAME IT.

HE IS GOING TO GIVE IT HIS

ALL.

Andrew: LIONEL RICHIE

AND MARIAH CAREY, AND

TORAN WELLS IS GOING TO BE

ON TOUR WITH THEM, AND HE

IS ABSOLUTELY A CHRISTIAN.

Efrem: I HAVE ALWAYS

KNOWN HIM TO BE A

CHRISTIAN.

IF YOU LISTEN TO HIS

LATEST ALBUM, IT IS ALL

STRAIGHT-UP CHRISTIAN.

HE IS TALKING ABOUT GOD

THE FATHER.

HE IS TALKING ABOUT JESUS.

HE IS TALKING ABOUT GOD

GIVING AND TAKING AWAY.

AND HE IS TAKING THE STAGE

DOING THAT.

HE SAYS HE WANTS TO INVADE

THIS TOUR WITH GOD'S LOVE.

HE WAS ASKED, SO HOW DO

YOU THINK YOU GOT TO

HEADLINE A TOUR WITH OF

ALL PEOPLE MARIAH CAREY

AND LIONEL RICHIE.

HE SAYS HE CREDITS HIS

AGENT AND JESUS, WHO IS

PROBABLY THE BEST BOOKER

YOU COULD HAVE.

HE CREDITS THOSE TWO WITH

GETTING HIM THIS GIG.

HIS PRAYER IS THAT HE USES

THE PLATFORM WELL TO

REPRESENT CHRIST.

Andrew: AWESOME.

THANK YOU, EFREM.

POSITIVE AND ENCOURAGING

COMING UP, A NEWBORN WITH

A HUGE TUMOR IN HIS

STOMACH.

HE IS GOING TO STRUGGLE

JUST TO SURVIVE.

YOU DON'T EXPECT TO SEE

THAT IN YOUR BABY WHO IS

ONLY TWO DAYS OLD O.

>OLD.

THE HEART-WRENCHING

PART WAS FEELING THE TOO TUMOR

IN HIS STOMACH.

Andrew: WE'RE GOING

TO SEE HOW THAT TUMOR

VANISHES OVERNIGHT, RIGHT

Andrew: CASEY'S

PREGNANCY WENT OFF WITHOUT

A HITCH.

BUT AFTER HER SON'S BIRTH,

SOMETHING WENT WRONG.

BABY HUNTER KEPT SPITTING

UP, AND SOON HIS LIFE WAS

IN JEOPARDY.

HE COULDN'T HOLD

ANYTHING DOWN FROM THE

FIRST TIME CH- , WHICH I HAD TO

FEED HIM.

Reporter: HUNTER WAS

ONLY TWO DAYS OLD WHEN HIS

PARENTS NOTICED A PROBLEM.

HE COULD ONLY EAT A

HALF OUNCE OF FORMULA AT A

TIME, INSTEAD OF THE

NORMAL TWO OUNCES.

ANYTHING MORE THAN THAT,

AND HE WOULD SPIT

EVERYTHING BACK UP.

ANY PRESSURE ON HIS

STOMACH WOULD MAKE HIM

SPIT BACK UP.

Reporter: HUNTER'S

DOCTOR ORDERS X-RAYS.

THERE IS JUST A MASS

THAT TOOK UP ABOUT

TWO-THIRDS OF HIS STOMACH.

THEY ACTUALLY SHOWED US

WHERE IT WAS, AND YOU

COULD FEEL IT.

AND THAT WAS PROBABLY THE

MOST HEARTBREAKING PART OF

IT, ACTUALLY BEING ABLE TO

FEEL THE MASS IN HIS

STOMACH.

Andrew: THE DOCTORS

TOLD THEM IT WAS

LIFE-THREATENING AND HE

NEEDED TO BE TREATED

IMMEDIATELY.

HE SAID, HUNTER CANNOT

LIVE WITH THIS MASS.

AND WE NEED TO SEND HIM TO

DENVER TO TAKE IT OUT

BECAUSE HE CAN'T EAT

ENOUGH TO LIVE WITH IT.

BOTH MY WIFE AND I WERE

JUST VERY SCARED, VERY

WORRIED.

I WAS BLOWN AWAY.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

THINK.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.

YOU DON'T EXPECT TO SEE

THAT IN YOUR BABY THAT IS

TWO DAYS OLD.

Andrew: HUNTER WAS

AIRLIFTED TO THE ROCKY

MOUNTAIN CHILDREN'S

HOSPITAL IN DENVER, FIVE

AND A HALF HOURS AWAY.

JAKE AND CASEY CALLED FOR

PRAYER, AND FROM THERE IT

SPREAD.

MY BROTHER IN OREGON

GOT ON Facebook AND PUT

THIS PRAYER REQUEST OUT ON

Facebook.

AND WITHIN HOURS HE HAD

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY AND ALL OVER THE

WORLD -- HE HAD FRIENDS IN

AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND

AND ENGLAND, AND ALL THOSE

FRIENDS AND THEIR CHURCHES

WERE PRAYING FOR HUNTER.

THE CIRCLE OF PRAYERS,

WITHIN HOURS, WAS

OVERWHELMING.

Reporter: JAKE'S

MOTHER, NORLENE, CALLED

CBN'S PRAYER CENTER.

I COULDN'T FIND THE

WORDS MYSELF TO PRAY.

SINCE I COULDN'T PUT IT

INTO WORDS, I KNEW THE

PERSON AT THE OTHER END OF

THAT PHONE LINE COULD, AND

SHE DID.

AND THAT'S WHAT I NEEDED.

Reporter: JAKE

REMEMBERS THE LONG DRIVE

TO DENVER.

I WAS JUST INCREDIBLY

WORRIED.

I THINK I SPENT MOST OF

THE TRIP PRAYING FOR

HUNTER.

Andrew: IN DENVER,

DOCTORS CONDUCTED TESTS,

AND A 3D ULTRASOUND

CONFIRMED THE RESULTS.

THE BEST PROGNOSIS WE

WERE LOOKING AT WAS HIM

LEAVING IN TWO MONTHS, BUT

WE SHOULD PROBABLY PLAN

FOR HIM TO BE THERE AT

LEAST SIX MONTHS.

Andrew: THE EVENING

BEFORE HUNTER'S SURGERY,

CASEY WAS FEEDING HER SON.

I WAS IN THE ROOM BY

MYSELF, AND I FED HUNTER,

AND HE DRANK THE WHOLE

TWO-OUNCE BOTTLE.

AND HE WAS PERFECTLY FINE.

AT THAT TIME, I WAS

CAUTIOUSLY OPTMISTIC

BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO

GET MY HOPES UP, BUT

SOMETHING CHANGED.

Andrew: THE NEXT

MORNING, DOCTORS ORDERED

ANOTHER M.R.I. TO GET A

LAST LOOK BEFORE SURGERY.

A WHILE LATER, THE

DOCTOR CAME IN, AND SHE

HAD A STRANGE LOOK ON HER

FACE, WHICH SCARED ME TO

DEATH.

LIKE SOMETHING HAPPENED,

AND IT PROBABLY IS NOT

GOOD.

BUT SHE CAME IN, AND SHE

SAID, OKAY, I HAVE NEWS

FOR YOU.

SHE SAID, WE JUST GOT DONE

WITH THE M.R.I., AND I

DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY SAW,

BUT IT'S NOT THERE NOW.

Andrew: MEDICAL

RECORDS CONFIRMED THAT THE

MASS DOCTORS DETECTED ON

THE 12th WAS GONE THE

NEXT DAY.

THEY COULDN'T EXPLAIN

IT.

AND THEY DIDN'T REALLY

ATTEMPT TO EXPLAIN IT.

I KNEW HE HAD BEEN HEALED.

I KNEW THE LORD HEALED

HIM.

I REMEMBER LOOKING AT

CASEY, AND WE BROKE DOWN

AND BOTH STARTED CRYING.

Andrew: TODAY HUNTER

IS A BUSY, HEALTHY

TODDLER.

JAKE AND CASEY ARE

GRATEFUL FOR HIS HEALING

AND THE POWER OF PRAYER.

THERE WERE THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE PRAYING FOR HUNTER.

AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF

THOSE PRAYERS MATTERED.

IT IS THE KIND OF

RELATIONSHIP THAT THE LORD

WANTS WITH US.

WE CAN ASK HIM ANYTHING.

COME BOLDLY BEFORE THE

THRONE OF GOD.

Andrew: WHAT A

MIRACLE.

AWESOME.

THE POWER OF PRAYER.

HUNTER'S PARENTS ARE

ORDINARY PEOPLE, LIKE YOU

AND I.

THEY'RE NOT THEOLOGIANS,

THEY'RE NOT PASTORS.

THEY JUST BELIEVE IN THE

POWER OF PRAYER, SAYING

THAT, LORD, YOU'RE ALL WE

HAVE, AND WE'RE GOING TO

TRUST IN YOU AND PRAY.

WATCHING THAT STORY, I WAS

THINKING ABOUT THE BLIND

MAN THAT IS TALKED ABOUT

IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.

HE WAS AWARE THAT JESUS

AROUND, IN TOWN.

HE CALLED OUT, HAVE MERCY

ON ME.

JESUS COULD HAVE DONE A

FEW THINGS.

HE COULD HAVE IGNORED HIM

AND PRETENDED HE DIDN'T

HEAR HIM.

HE COLD HAVE TOLD ONE OF

HIS DISCIPLES TO GO DEAL

WITH IT.

BUT JESUS STOPPED AND SAID

TO THIS BLIND MAN, WHAT IS

IT THAT YOU WANT?

AND THE BLIND MAN SIMPLY

SAID, I WANT TO SEE.

AND JESUS SAID, YOUR FAITH

HAS MADE YOU WELL.

AND I TELL THAT STORY

BECAUSE LET'S TELL JESUS

NOW, TODAY, WHAT IT IS

THAT WE WANT.

IT'S NOT LIKE HE IS JUST A

GIFT-GIVER, OR LIKE A

SANTA CLAUS-TYPE.

IT IS THE OUTPOURING OF

OUR PAIN AND OUR HEART AND

OUR DISTRESS, OUR PHYSICAL

NEED, THAT JESUS WANTS US

TO ARTICULATE IT TO HIM,

EVEN SO WE CAN HEAR IT

OURSELVES.

SO HE SAYS TODAY, WHAT IS

IT THAT YOU WANT?

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR

NEED IS.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS

PHYSICAL, IF IT IS IN A

RELATIONSHIP.

MAYBE IT IS THAT YOU

WANDERED AWAY FROM GOD.

RIGHT NOW, AFTER SEEING

THAT GREAT STORY ABOUT

HUNTER AND OUR FAITH IS

BUILT, LET'S BRING OUR

NEED BEFORE THE LORD.

FATHER, WE THANK YOU FOR

THIS MIRACLE IN HUNTER'S

LIFE.

WE THANK YOU FOR THE POWER

OF PRAYER.

WE THANK YOU THAT YOU

LISTEN, THAT YOU CARE

ABOUT THE DETAILS OF OUR

LIFE.

AND AS WE KNOW, JESUS, YOU

ASKED THAT BLIND BEGGER,

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT?

WE SAY IT NOW.

IF YOU'RE PRAYING WITH ME,

SAY IT OUT LOUD TO JESUS.

WHAT IS IT YOU WANT?

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU NEED?

FATHER, YOU HEAR THE

REQUESTS OF YOUR PEOPLE.

YOU SEE OUR PAIN.

YOU SEE OUR PHYSICAL NEED,

OUR ILLNESS, OUR SICKNESS.

YOU KNOW OF THE POOR

DIAGNOSIS WE MAY HAVE JUST

RECEIVED FROM OUR DOCTORS.

YOU TELL US NOT TO FEAR.

DO NOT BE DISMAYED.

YOU HAVE NO LEFT US.

YOU HAVE NOT FORSAKEN US.

YOU ARE WITH US.

DO NOT FEAR.

AND, LORD, FOR THOSE IN

THE AUDIENCE RIGHT NOW WHO

HAVE PHYSICAL AILMENTS,

CANCER, SICKNESS, RIGHT

NOW COLLECTIVELY, WE JOIN

TOGETHER IN PRAYER, FATHER

GOD, AND WE REBUKE ILLNESS

IN JESUS' NAME.

THANKS TO THE WORK OF

JESUS ON THE CROSS.

WE CLAIM HEALING NOW BY

JESUS STRIPES.

BY JESUS' STRIPES, WE ARE

HEALED.

LIFT YOUR HANDS AND CLAIM

IT.

THANK YOU, JESUS, FOR MY

HEALING.

THANK YOU, JESUS, FOR

WORKING IN MY LIFE.

FATHER GOD, FOR THOSE WHO

HAVE WANDERED FROM YOU,

THANK YOU THAT YOU TAKE US

BACK WITH LOVING ARMS.

YOU ARE NEVER DONE WITH

US.

WE ARE NEVER TOO DIRTY FOR

YOUR LOVE.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GRACE,

YOUR MERCY, FORGIVENESS,

AND HEALING POWER.

WE CLAIM HEALING NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AMEN.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE FURTHER

PRAYER, NO MATTER WHAT

YOUR NEED IS, GIVE US A

CALL.

1-800-700-7000.

WE WOULD LOVE TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

> STILL TO COME, ARE YOU

TRAVELLING?

THEN DON'T LEAVE HOME

WITHOUT THIS.

WE'RE ALREADY KIND OF

PLANNING HOW WILL WE CARRY

OURSELVES?

WHAT WILL WE CARRY WITH

US?

HOW WILL WE RESPOND TO

CROWDS AND ALL OF THOSE

KINDS OF THINGS.

Andrew: IT IS CALLED

"HIGH RISK TRAVELLING

TRAINING," AND SEE HOW IT

COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.

THAT'S NEXT, WHEN WE COME

Andrew: DEADLY

TERRORIST ATTACKS AROUND

THE WORLD MEAN MORE RISKS

FOR TRAVELLERS.

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU

NEED TO THROW AWAY YOUR

PASSPORT OR STAY HOME.

YOU CAN GET HELP TO TRAVEL

WITH CONFIDENCE.

TAKE A LOOK.

[YELLING]

ARE YOU AN AMERICAN?

Caitlin: NO, THIS

ISN'T A MOVIE, BUT IT IS

NOT QUITE REALITY, EITHER.

HERE AT THE CENTER FOR

PERSONAL PROTECTION AND

SAFETY IN VIRGINIA,

INSTRUCTORS HELP FREQUENT

TRAVELLERS LEARN HOW TO

SPOT TROUBLE AND RESPOND

TO ANYTHING FROM A

TERRORISM ATTACK TO

PICKPOCKETING.

WE'RE LIVING IN A

PRETTY EXTREME WORLD

ENVIRONMENT RIGHT NOW.

WE'VE ALWAYS SEEN RISKS,

BUT WE'RE SEEING PLACES

THAT HAVE BEEN PRETTY SAFE

TO TRAVEL TO, AND AS YOU

LOOK AT EXTREMISM AND

TERRORISM, THERE ARE AREAS

LIKE PARIS, NICE, FRANCE,

EVEN LONDON, AND WE'RE

SEEING RISKS THAT

HISTORICALLY HAVEN'T BEEN

THERE.

Caitlin: SANDY

PARTICIPATED IN THIS

COURSE IN PREPARATION FOR

A TRIP TO EUROPE.

WE ARE PLANNING, HOW

WILL WE CARRY OURSELVES?

HOW WILL WE RESPOND TO

CROWDS?

AND ALL OF THOSE KINDS OF

THINGS.

Caitlin: BRANDY IS

THE C.E.O. AND FOUNDER OF

THE CENTER FOR PERSONAL

PROTECTION AND SAFETY.

HE POINTS OUT SITUATIONAL

AWARENESS IS NEEDED BY

MORE THAN JUST FREQUENT

TRAVELLERS.

IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT,

THE SKILLS WE TALK ABOUT

TODAY APPLY WHEN YOU

TRAVEL AND ALSO WHEN YOU

WALK AROUND NORFOLK,

VIRGINIA.

WE'RE TEACHING HOW TO

RECOGNIZE POTENTIAL

WARNING SIGNS BEFORE THEY

OCCUR.

THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN HOW PEOPLE WHO ARE

TRAINED AND UNTRAINED

RESPOND IN A CRISIS.

AN UNTRAINED INDIVIDUAL,

IF THEY FIND THEMSELVES IN

THAT CRISIS, THEY'RE GOING

TO BE STARTLED AND MORE

THAN LIKELY FREEZE AND

LOCK UP.

A TRAINED INDIVIDUAL WILL

BE STARTLED, AND THEN

THEY'LL THINK, I HAVE SOME

OPTIONS AND THEY'LL BE

ABLE TO MOVE ON THE

OPTIONS.

Caitlin: THEY USE A

TRAINING METHOD CALLED

STRESS IN INOCULATION.

PARTICIPANTS MUST RESPOND

THE WAY THEY MIGHT IF THEY

WERE ACTUALLY IN A CRISIS.

REACTIONS INCLUDE

INCREASED BLOOD PRESSURE,

FEELING SHAKY, AND TROUBLE

PUTTING TOGETHER THOUGHTS.

WITH THE INTENSITY OF

HIS VOICE, IT BECAME MORE

AND MORE REAL.

SO IT REALLY DID GET MORE

STRESSFUL WITH HIS

CONTINUED FIDGETING AND

THE GUN AND THE HIGH

PITCH.

YEAH, I FORGOT IN A LOT OF

WAYS THAT IT WAS JUST A

TRAINING.

IT FELT REAL.

Caitlin: ONE SCENARIO

INVOLVED TERRORISTS

DEMANDING THAT CHRISTIANS

RAISE THEIR HANDS.

THEY FEEL LIKE THEY

HAVE TO ANSWER THAT.

TO ANSWER IT NO WOULD BE

DENYING THEIR FAITH.

TO ANSWER IT YES, THEY

WIND UP GETTING SHOT.

IT IS NOT DENYING YOUR

FAITH TO NOT ANSWER THAT

QUESTION, OR TO ANSWER IT

WITH SOMETHING OTHER THAN

YES OR NO.

YOU MAY BE ABLE TO RESPOND

WITH, I AM A PERSON OF

FAITH.

OR I'M SO SCARED RIGHT NOW

I'M HAVING A HARD TIME

ANSWERING WHAT YOU'RE

ASKING ME.

Caitlin: THAT INITIAL

CAPTURE PHASE OF A HOSTAGE

SITUATION IS THE MOST

DANGEROUS.

YOU HAVE INDIVIDUALS

WHO ARE TRYING TO COME IN

AND TAKE CONTROL OF THE

SITUATION, AND THEY'RE NOT

IN CONTROL.

Caitlin: HE SAYS TO

REMEMBER THESE THREE

"C"s TO HELP YOU GET OUT

OF TROUBLE: CALM, CONNECT,

AND CAPITALIZE.

BE A CALMING INTEREST.

CONNECT WITH YOUR CAPTOR

ON A PERSONAL LEVEL TO

BECOME MORE THAN AN

OBJECT.

AND CAPITALIZE BY

ENCOURAGING A NEGOTIATED

RELEASE.

WHAT IS YOUR REASON?

WHY SHOULD I NOT KILL YOU?

I'M A MOTHER.

I HAVE A FAMILY.

Caitlin: IN TODAY'S

WORLD, IT IS ABOUT

REACHING A BALANCE BETWEEN

TWO EXTREMES: PARANOIA AND

OBLIVION.

BEING SOMEWHERE IN THE

MIDDLE MIGHT JUST SAVE

YOUR LIFE.

Andrew: HIGH-RISK

TRAVEL TRAINING, RATHER

SAD THAT WE NEED TO THINK

ABOUT THAT TYPE OF

TRAINING BEFORE GOING

OVERSEAS OR EVEN

TRAVELLING DOMESTICALLY.

BUT WE NEED TO THINK ABOUT

WHAT WE'LL DO IN DANGEROUS

SITUATIONS.

SOMETIMES MY WIFE AND I

HAVE TALKED ABOUT WHAT DO

WE DO IN OUR HOUSE IF

THERE IS A FIRE?

WHERE ARE THE ESCAPE

ROUTES?

WHAT IF WE'RE DRIVING OVER

A BRIDGE AND THERE IS AN

EMERGENCY?

THESE ARE THE TYPE OF

THINGS FAMILIES NEED TO

TALK ABOUT AND DO SOME

ADVANCED PLANNING JUST IN

CASE OF AN EMERGENCY.

> I WANT TO REMIND YOU

BEFORE WE CLOSE IF YOU

NEED PRAYER ABOUT ANYTHING

IN YOUR LIFE, WE WOULD BE

HONORED AND PRIVILEGED TO

PRAY WITH YOU.

JUST CALL 1-800-700-7000.

WE ARE HONORED AND

PRIVILEGED TO LIFT YOUR

NEEDS BEFORE THE THRONE OF

GOD.

> I WANT TO LEAVE YOU

TODAY WITH PSALM 121,

VERSES 7 THROUGH 8: "THE

LORD KEEPS YOU FROM ALL

HARM AND WATCHES OVER YOUR

LIFE.

THE LORD KEEPS WATCH OVER

YOU AS YOU COME AND GO,

BOTH NOW AND FOREVER."

A GREAT WORD FROM THE

PSALMS TODAY TO REMEMBER,

ESPECIALLY AFTER WATCHING

THAT PIECE WITH ALL OF THE

DANGERS IN THE WORLD OUT

THERE.

WE'RE PRAYING FOR YOU.

THANKS FOR JOINING US

TODAY, AND WE'LL SEE YOU
