Wendy: COMING UP, A

REVIVAL INSIDE AN UNLIKELY

PLACE.

HE SAID, YOU'RE GOING

ALL HOLY ON ME.

Wendy: HEAR HOW ONE

OIL MAN IS REACHING OUR

NATION'S PRISONS WITH THE

GOSPEL.

HE GOT CAUGHT, AND I

DIDN'T.

THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS HE

IS IN PRISON AND I'M NOT.

Wendy: PLUS, THE

PRESIDENT OF "CONCERNED

WOMEN FOR AMERICA" SHARES

HOW TO WIN THE CULTURE

WARS.

THEN A TWO-TIME GOLD

WINNING SKEET SHOOTER.

MY PROFESSION IS

PROFESSIONALISM.

Wendy: AND WELCOME,

EVERYONE, TO "THE 700

CLUB."

THE WORST OF THE RAINFALL

FROM HARVEY IS FINALLY

OVER FOR THE HOUSTON AREA,

BUT THE DEATH TOLL IN

TEXAS IS STILL RISING.

IT REACHED 30 BY THIS

MORNING.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THIS

LOOK AT HARVEY'S TERRIBLE

IMPACT ON AMERICA'S FOURTH

LARGEST CITY.

Heather: THE RAIN

FROM HARVEY, OVER

50 INCHES IN SOME SPOTS,

MAKES IT THE HEAVIEST

TROPICAL DOWNPOUR IN THE

HISTORY OF THE CONTINENTAL

UNITED STATES.

AND WHILE THE DOWNPOUR IN

HOUSTON HAS BASICALLY

ENDED, THE FLOODWATERS ARE

STILL RISING.

IT IS ALL THE WAY UP TO

THE ROOF, GUYS.

I HATE TO THINK THERE ARE

PEOPLE IN THESE HOUSES.

Heather: THE OFFICIAL

TALLY OF RESCUES RIGHT NOW

IS 13,000, BUT THE ACTUAL

NUMBER IS LIKELY MUCH

HIGHER.

AND STILL MORE THAN 1,000

IN HOUSTON ARE DESPERATELY

WAITING FOR HELP.

THIS WOMAN WAS STRANDED IN

HER CAR FOR TWO DAYS.

ALL I CAN SAY IS THERE

ARE ANGELS OUT HERE.

DON'T GIVE UP ON US.

SEEK THE HIGHER GROUND.

WE WILL GET TO YOU.

Heather: THE CITY OF

HOUSTON COVERS AROUND

10,000 SQUARE MILES, AND

IT IS SLIGHTLY BIGGER THAN

NEW JERSEY, AND MAKES

RESCUE OPERATIONS A

DAUNTING TASK.

HOUSTON POLICE OFFICER

STEVE PEREZ DROWNED IN THE

FLOODWATERS ON HIS WAY TO

HELP OTHERS.

ONCE WE GOT THERE, IT

WAS TOO TREACHEROUS TO GO

UNDER AND LOOK FOR HIM.

Heather: TOR TORRENTIAL

RAINS ARE STILL EXPECTED

FROM HOUSTON TO LOUISIANA.

RISING FLOODWATERS ARE NOW

THE CONCERN.

ESPECIALLY AFTER TWO

RESERVOIR DAMS BEGAN TO

OVERFLEE ON TUESDAY.

OVERFLOW ON TUESDAY.

OFFICIALS ARE WATCHING

BRIDGES, ROADS, AND

PIPELINES IN THE PATH OF

THE FLOODWATERS.

AND THEY'RE ATTENDING TO

OVER 17,000 PEOPLE WHO

HAVE SOUGHT RESCUES.

HOUSTON OPENED TWO MEGA

SHELTERS ON TUESDAY, AND

HAS ASKED FEMA FOR MORE

FOOD AND COTS.

PRESIDENT TRUMP VISITED

HOUSTON, AND PROMISED TO

PROVIDE BILLIONS OF

DOLLARS IN LONG-TERM

DISASTER AID AND TALKED

WITH STATE OFFICIALS ABOUT

THE MAGNITUDE OF THE

DISASTER.

President Trump: THIS

IS HISTORIC, EPIC, WHAT

HAPPENED.

BUT IT HAPPENED IN TEXAS,

AND TEXAS CAN HANDLE

ANYTHING.

Heather: THE

PRESIDENT PLANS TO RETURN

TO THE REGION ON SATURDAY

AS IT RECOVERS FROM THIS

HISTORIC NATURAL DISASTER.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THANK YOU,

HEATHER.

AND AS HEATHER JUST

MENTIONED, THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE HAVE GONE TO

SHELTERS IN HOUSTON.

CBN'S ERIC GONZALES

VISITED ONE OF THOSE

SHELTERS.

HE FOUND THAT EVACUEES ARE

THANKFUL TO BE ALIVE, BUT

THEY'RE WORRIED ABOUT

THEIR FUTURE.

Reporter: I'M HERE AT

THE GEORGE R. BROWN

CONVENTION CENTER IN

DOWNTOWN HOUSTON, WHERE

SOME 9,000 PEOPLE ARE

SEEKING SHELTER.

NO ONE WILL BE TURNED

AWAY, ACCORDING TO THE RED

CROSS.

BUT PEOPLE HERE, MANY WITH

ONLY THE CLOTHES ON THEIR

BACKS, HAVE LOST

EVERYTHING, THEIR

PROPERTY, THEIR HOMES, AND

MANY DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE

THEIR OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS

ARE.

I HAVE NEVER HAD IT

LIKE THIS.

I FEEL LIKE A HOMELESS

MAN.

WITH NOWHERE TO GO.

BUT, YOU KNOW, MY FAITH,

IT WON'T CHANGE.

Reporter: MINISTER

LARRY DANIEL RECENTLY

MOVED TO THE AREA WITH HIS

WIFE ON RHONDA.

ON SUNDAY, AS FLOODWATERS

ROSE, SHE RUSHED TO A

NEARBY HOSPITAL, WHERE HER

FRIEND HAD BEEN TAKEN.

WHILE SHE WAS GONE, DANIEL

WAS FORCED TO EVACUATE

THEIR MOBILE HOME, AND NOW

HE HAS NO IDEA WHERE SHE

IS.

HE SAYS A FRIEND TRIED TO

CALL HER.

I HAVEN'T HEARD BACK

FROM HIM.

SHE HAS MY PHONE, BUT

HAVING CELL PHONES, YOU

DON'T REMEMBER NUMBERS

ANYMORE.

Reporter: HE SAYS

RIGHT NOW HE IS BROKEN,

BUT WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP

HIS FAITH.

WHEN I NEED IT, IT

SHOWS.

SO GOD IS PROVIDING.

IT HAPPENED SO QUICK.

IT WAS WITHIN A FEW HOURS,

AND IT WAS, LIKE, THREE

FEET IN THERE.

AND SO I JUST GRABBED

WHATEVER I COULD.

Reporter: SEAN PALMER

SAYS HE IS THANKFUL FOR A

MAN WHO CAME BY HIS

FLOODED HOME IN A KAYAK

AND SAVED HIS LIFE.

HE SAVED ME.

WHAT HAD PUT HIM OUT THERE

WAS JUST THAT HE WANTED TO

HELP PEOPLE.

AND, YOU KNOW, IF THE HOLY

SPIRIT DIDN'T MOVE HIS

HEART, I DON'T KNOW WHAT

WOULD HAVE HAPPENED TO ME.

Reporter: WE HEARD

STORY AFTER STORY ABOUT

HOW GOD MOVED ORDINARY

PEOPLE TO STEP IN AND SAVE

LIVES.

OTHERS WANTED TO HELP, BUT

RISING FLOODWATERS

PREVENTED IT.

THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKED

LIKE OUTSIDE OF HOUSTON'S

LAKEWOOD CHURCH.

EVERYTHING AROUND US

WAS FLOODED.

IT WAS JUST DANGEROUS TO

TRY TO IN ANY WAY, NUMBER

ONE, GET VOLUNTEERS HERE,

OR OTHER PEOPLE JUST

COULDN'T REACH THE CHURCH.

Reporter: HOWEVER,

SOME MEDIA OUTLETS

CRITICIZED LAKEWOOD AND

PASTOR JOEL OSTEEN FOR NOT

IMMEDIATELY WELCOMING

THOSE FORCED FROM THEIR

HOMES.

LET US HELP.

WE'LL DO ANYTHING WE CAN

TO HELP.

WE'RE NOT HERE FOR THIS

DAY.

WE'RE HERE TO HELP REBUILD

AND TEAR DOWN AND REBUILD

AND CLEANUP.

WE'RE HERE FOR THE LONG

HAUL.

DURING THAT WINDOW WHERE

WE WERE BEING SIEGED, WE

JUST COULDN'T MOVE AND IT

WAS DANGEROUS TO MOVE.

Reporter: HERE AT

LAKEWOOD CHURCH, ABOUT 300

EVACUEES ARE CURRENTLY

BEING HOUSED.

YOU CAN SEE BEHIND ME THE

AMOUNT OF SUPPORT FROM

HOUSTONIANS THAT ARE

BRINGING SUPPLIES HERE AT

LAKEWOOD CHURCH.

WE'RE JOINED WITH PASTOR

OSTEEN.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

IT IS GREAT TO BE WITH

YOU.

Reporter: TALK TO US

A LITTLE ABOUT THE

CRITICISM.

THE CHURCH HAS ALWAYS

BEEN OPEN.

WE RECEIVED EVACUEES EARLY

ON.

SOME WANTED TO GO TO A

LARGER SHELTER THAT WAS

SET UP.

THE NOTION WERE GOING TO

TURN PEOPLE AWAY IS NOT

TRUE.

THE FIRST FEW DAYS, THE

CHURCH WAS NOT SAFE.

RIGHT BEHIND ME, THIS

BUILDING WAS FLOODED

BEFORE.

SO WE HAD TO BE VERY

CAUTIOUS THERE.

BUT ONCE WE GOT IT UP AND

RUNNING, THE OTHER SHELTER

FILLED UP, AND NOW WE'RE

RECEIVING PEOPLE AND

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN OUR

COMMUNITY.

Reporter: YOU'RE HERE

FOR THE LONG HAUL.

YES.

Reporter: YOU WANT TO

SEE HOUSTON REBUILT.

THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.

IN A WEEK OR TWO, THESE

PEOPLE THAT ARE SHELTERED

WILL BE MOVED ON, BUT OVER

THE NEXT FIVE YEARS, WE'LL

HAVE TEAMS WORKING IN THE

COMMUNITY.

WE'RE STILL HELPING PEOPLE

FROM KATRINA.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS ALL

ABOUT.

I LOVE, TOO, THAT I GET TO

TALK A LOT, BUT THIS IS

GETTING TO SHOW THE

COMMUNITY WHAT LAKEWOOD IS

ALL ABOUT.

TODAY THOUSANDS OF

VOLUNTEERS WILL COME OUT

AND BRING ALL OF THESE

SUPPLIES.

AND WE'LL TAKE THEM TO THE

DIFFERENT SHELTERS HERE IN

TOWN.

Reporter: IT IS

AMAZING, THE GENEROSITY

AND THE SUPPORT THAT

LAKEWOOD HAS IN THIS

COMMUNITY?

IT REALLY IS.

I'M BLESSED TO BE HERE.

MY PARENTS STARTED THIS

NEARLY 60 YEARS AGO, AND

IT HAS GROWN INTO THESE.

SOMETIMES THESE DIFFICULT

TIMES BRINGS OUT THE BEST

IN PEOPLE.

THEY SAY, LET'S GO HELP

SOMEBODY.

Reporter: OUR PRAYERS

CONTINUE FOR LAKEWOOD

CHURCH AND THE ENTIRE

HOUSTON AREA.

WE APPRECIATE YOU GUYS.

Reporter: THANK YOU

SO MUCH, PASTOR.

ABOUT 300 PEOPLE ARE

CURRENTLY HOUSED HERE AT

LAKEWOOD CHURCH.

WE DO HAVE A BREAK IN THE

CLOUDS.

THAT IS DEFINITELY GOOD

NEWS.

IT IS BRINGING HOPE TO THE

PEOPLE HERE, AND THE HOPE

OF GOD AS WELL.

Wendy: AMEN.

AND RIGHT NOW THAT'S WHAT

PEOPLE NEED.

IT IS GREAT THAT YOU WERE

ABLE TO TALK TO PASTOR

JOEL.

> WHERE IS THIS GOD IN

THE MIDST OF THIS NATIONAL

DISASTER?

CBN NEWS IS TALKING TO

TEXAS GOVERNOR GREG ABBOTT

AND SENATOR TED CRUZ, AND

YOU CAN WATCH THAT ON

"FAITH NATION."

> CBN'S "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS HELPING

PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN HIT

HARD BY HARVEY IN SEVERAL

CITIES IN TEXAS.

AND JODY GETTY SAYS THE

TEAM WENT INTO ONE

COMMUNITY THAT HAD LOST

POWER AND NEEDED BASIC

SUPPLIES.

WE HAD A TRUCK COME

INTO TEXAS TODAY.

THIS COMMUNITY IS STILL

WITHOUT POWER.

WE'RE FIVE DAYS OUT.

THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF CARS

LINED UP THAT STILL DON'T

HAVE PORTABLE WATER AND

ELECTRICITY.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING"

UNLOADED A SEMI TRUCK FULL

OF FOOD, WATER, AND THE

BASICS OF LIFE, TO HELP

MAKE LIFE A LITTLE EASIER

HERE IN TAFT.

Wendy: THANKS, JODY.

SO OFTEN "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS ONE OF THE

FIRST ON THE SCENE WHEN

DISASTER STRIKES.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP

WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING'S" ONGOING

EFFORTS, YOU CAN DESIGNATE

YOUR GIFT TO "OPERATION

BLESSING" DISASTER RELIEF

FUND.

YOU CAN CALL

1-800-700-7000, OR YOU CAN

LOG ON TO cbn.com OR

YOU CAN MAIL THEM TO

"OPERATION BLESSING,"

INTERNATIONAL DISASTER

RELIEF FUND, CBN CENTER,

VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA,

23463.

WE'RE SO GLAD THAT O.B. IS

ON THE SCENE.

> COMING UP, MEET A

BUSINESS TYCOON WHO TRADED

A JOB ON THE OIL PIPELINES

FOR ONE INSIDE THE TEXAS

PRISONS.

THAT'S WHAT WE SAY IN

PRISON EVANGELISM,

CHANGING HEARTS AND

CLOSING PRISONS.

Wendy: SEE HOW HE IS

CHANGING THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE BEHIND BARS.

THAT'S NEXT.

Wendy: THE HIGH

NUMBERS OF PEOPLE IN

PRISON HAVE POLITICIANS,

POLICY-MAKERS, AND

RELIGIOUS LEADERS

RE-THINKING CRIMINAL

JUSTICE IN AMERICA.

IT'S A SYSTEM THAT SOME

ARGUE RELIES TOO HEAVILY

ON LOCKING PEOPLE UP AND

NOT NEARLY ENOUGH ON

REHABILITATING THEM.

JOHN JESSUP INTRODUCES US

TO A TEXAS BUSINESSMAN ON

A TWO-FOLD MISSION: TO

SAVE SOULS AND CLOSE

PRISONS.

IT IS 36-INCH LINE

PIPE.

Reporter: DAVID HOW

WELL KNOWHOWELL KNOWS A GOOD

INVESTMENT WHEN HE SEES

ONE.

AT 14, HE STARTED WORKING

IN THE OIL INDUSTRY.

TODAY HE MAKES A LIVING

BUYING OLD UNDERGROUND

PIPES AND REHABILITATING

THEM, GIVING SECOND LIFE

TO WHAT MANY MIGHT

CONSIDER WASTE.

THIS IS ULTIMATE

RECYCLING TO ME.

LIKE I SAID, IT IS JUST A

TUBE OF STEEL THAT CAN BE

USED AND REUSED.

Reporter: IN A WAY,

DAVID'S CAREER HAS COME

FULL CIRCLE, MUCH LIKE

THIS LIFE.

IF YOU CAN IMAGINE THE

TOTAL SELF-CENTERED LIFE,

ME, ME, ME, AND THAT WAS

ME, ME, ME.

AND A LOT OF THAT CENTERED

AROUND ALCOHOL, SEX, ALL

OF THOSE THINGS, MONEY,

AND JUST TAKING CARE OF MY

OWN PERSONAL NEEDS.

Reporter: AS A YOUNG

HUSBAND AND FATHER, HE

WANTED TO ABANDON HIS

DESTRUCTIVE LIFESTYLE, SO

HE TURNED TO ALCOHOLICS

ANONYMOUS AND SOON AFTER

FOUND HIMSELF IN CHURCH.

I JUMPED INTO A.A. AND

BECAME MR. A.A.

AND WHEN I BECAME A

CHRISTIAN, I SAID THIS IS

GOING TO BE AN ALL OR

NOTHING DEAL FOR ME AS

WELL.

Reporter: NOW SOBER

FOR MORE THAN 35 YEARS,

DAVID DEDICATED HIS NEW

LIFE TO SHARING HIS STORY

WITH ANYONE WHO WOULD

LISTEN.

I WOULD FIND PEOPLE

OUTSIDE OF A MEETING, AND

WHAT GO TO LUNCH OR

COFFEE, AND I WOULD WRITE

STICK FIGURES AND SO

PEOPLE THE STORY OF JESUS.

THE A.A. CROWD, BEING

PART OF THAT, AND HE KIND

OF EXPERIMENTED THERE, I

THINK THAT WAS SORT OF HIS

TESTING GROUND.

Reporter: SEVERAL

YEARS AGO, HE WROTE A BOOK

CALLED "HOW TO BE A CHILD

OF GOD," AND THAT OPENED A

NEW DOOR.

EVEN THOUGH HE IS A

GIFTED EVANGELIST, BY

GIFT, HE NEVER REALLY HAD

SEEN THIS COMING.

I NEVER SAW THIS COMING.

Reporter: DAVID'S

SUCCESS HAS SERVED HIM

WELL, BUT AFTER 30 YEARS

IN THE INDUSTRY, HE IS

SPENDING LESS TIME

RECLAIMING OLD PIPES ON

THE OIL FIELD AND SPENDING

MOMORE TIME CLAIMING SOULS

FOR CHRIST.

IN PLACES LIKE THIS, WITH

ARMED GUARDS, HIS BOOK IS

MAKING THE BIGGEST IMPACT.

CBN NEWS OBTAIN RARE

ACCESS TO TALK WITH

PRISONERS ABOUT THE VALUE

OF DAVID'S 52-PAGE HOW-TO

GUIDE.

SINCE I READ HIS BOOK,

IT CHANGED MY LIFE.

Reporter: HE SERVED A

TWO-YEAR SENTENCE FOR

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT WITH A

DEADLY WEAPON.

HAS THERE BEEN A CHANGE IN

YOUR PERSONALITY AND

BEHAVIOR?

YES.

I'VE LEARNED HOW TO TIE MY

TONGUE AND I'VE BEEN DOING

BIBLE STUDIES.

Reporter: DO YOU

THINK OTHERS HAVE NOTICE

THE CHANGES AS WELL?

YES.

MY FAMILY.

Reporter: WHAT HAVE

THEY TOLD YOU?

HE SAID, YOU'VE GONE

ALL HOLY ON ME.

Reporter: JACKIE

BEAVER'S ANGER ISSUES

LANDED HIM IN PRISON FOR

MORE THAN 20 YEARS,

SERVING TIME FOR

AGGRAVATED ROBBERY AND

KIDNAPPING.

HE WROTE TO DAVID TO TELL

HIM HIS BOOK WAS AMAZING,

AND OPENED HIS EYES TO A

LOT HE DIDN'T KNOW.

I'M A TRUE BELIEVER

THAT JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR

MY SINS.

WHEN I READ THAT BOOK, IT

WAS LIKE A BREATH OF FRESH

AIR.

Reporter: CBN WAS

THERE THE MOMENT BOTH MEN

GOT TO PERSONALLY THANK

THE AUTHOR.

FOR DAVID, IT ONLY

CONFIRMS THE CALL TO KEEP

REACHING OUT TO THE TWO

MILLION AMERICAN MEN AND

WOMEN BEHIND BARS.

I'M 77, AND I'M A

ROUGHNECK FROM SOUTH

TEXAS.

WHAT DO I KNOW ABOUT

WRITING A BOOK ABOUT

SALVATION.

BUT I COULD IDENTIFY WITH

THOSE KIND OF PEOPLE.

I'VE ROUGH-NECKED WITH

THEM AND WORKED WITH THEM.

FOR ALL OF THE THINGS I

DID IN ALL OF THOSE YEARS

OF THAT HELLISH LIVING, HE

GOT CAUGHT AND I DIDN'T.

THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS HE

IS IN PRISON AND I'M NOT.

Reporter: THIS PRISON

VOLUNTEER HANDS OUT COPIES

OF "HOW TO BE A CHILD OF

GOD," AND HE SAYS IT

PRODUCES REAL CHANGE IN A

PLACE OF PHYSICAL AND

OFTEN SPIRITUAL BONDAGE.

THEY'RE FREE.

YOU CAN TELL.

THE SMILE ON THEIR FACES,

YOU KNOW THEY'RE FREE,

FREE INSIDE.

Reporter: DAVID WANTS

TO GET 600 COPIES OF HIS

BOOK INTO AMERICA'S STATE

AND FEDERAL PRISONS AND

COUNTY JAILS, ALL WITH THE

HOPE OF HELPING MEN AND

WOMEN BEHIND BARS.

WE SAY IN EVANGELISM,

CHANGING HEARTS AND

CLOSING PRISONS.

Reporter: I'M JOHN

JESSUP FOR CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THANKS, JOHN.

WOULDN'T THAT BE A GREAT

WORLD, IF THERE WERE NO

PRISONS?

> MANY PEOPLE SAY ONE

REASON WE NEED TO REFORM

OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM IS

SIMPLE: THE U.S. PUTS MORE

PEOPLE IN PRISON THAN ANY

OTHER COUNTRY.

UP NEXT, SHE IS FEISTY

AND FANCY.

SHE HAS A CRY FOR

CONSERVATIVE WOMEN TO

STAND UP AND BE HEARD.

THE C.E.O. OF "CONCERNED

WOMEN FOR AMERICA" JOINS

US AFTER THIS.

Wendy: IF YOU HAVEN'T

ORDERED YOUR FREE D.V.D.

YET, DO IT TODAY.

IT IS CALLED "PROTECT YOUR

BRAIN: FIVE WAYS TO STAY

MENTALLY SHARP AND BRAIN

HEALTHY."

THE EXPERTS ON THIS D.V.D.

WILL TELL YOU HOW YOU CAN

REDUCE YOUR RISK OF

DEVELOPING ALZHEIMER'S,

REDUCE YOUR CHANCE OF

STROKE, DISCOVER THE

SECRET TO A YOUNGER BRAIN,

AND CHANGE DANGEROUS HANTS

THAHABITS THAT THREATEN YOUR

OVER ALL HEALTH.

CALL US RIGHT NOW,

1-800-700-7000, OR GO TO

cbn.com TO REQUEST YOUR

FREE D.V.D.

WE'RE ABOUT TO MED ONE MEET ONE

VERY REMARKABLE WOMAN.

HER JOURNEY BEGAN WHEN SHE

WAS JUST FOUR YEARS OLD.

AND SINCE THEN, SHE HAS

BEEN UNSTOPPABLE.

ESPECIALLY AS THE LEADER

OF A LARGEST WOMEN'S

ORGANIZATION.

TAKE A LOOK.

Andrew: WOMEN HAVE

BEEN MARCHING FOR EQUAL

RIGHTS FOR HUNDREDS OF

YEARS.

TODAY WOMEN CONTINUE TO

BRING THE LIGHT TO

IMPORTANT ISSUES.

MEET PENNY YOUNGMAN, THE

PRESIDENT AND C.E.O. OF

"CONCERNED WOMEN FOR

AMERICA."

AND SHE SAYS THERE IS A

RIGHT AND WRONG WAY TO

RESPOND TO THESE HOT

BUTTON ISSUES FACING OR

CULTURE TODAY.

IN HER BOOK, SHE REVEALS

WHO IS REALLY WAGING THE

WAR ON WOMEN, AND GIVES A

RALLYING CRY FOR WOMEN TO

SEEK THE TRUTH ABOUT

THINGS THAT MATTER MOST.

Wendy: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," PENNY

YOUNG NANCE.

IT IS A PLEASURE TO BE

HERE.

Wendy: LET'S START

TALKING ABOUT HOW YOU

BECAME AN ADVOCATE.

I KNOW YOU WERE FOUR YEARS

OLD AND YOU WOULD GET UP

ON THE TABLE AND START

PREACHING TO YOUR DOLLS.

THAT'S TRUE.

MY DAD WAS A BAPTIST

MINISTER, SO I SPENT A LOT

OF TIME IN CHURCH.

REALLY THAT WHOLE IDEA,

THE SPARK THAT GOD PUT IN

MY HEART, CAME INTO FULL

FRUITION WHEN I WAS AT

LIBERTY UNIVERSITY.

AS A YOUNG UNDERGRAD,

JERRY FALLWELL, SR. WAS

THOUGHTFUL ABOUT BRINGING

IN WOMEN LEADERS.

AND HE BOUGHT IN WOMEN

LIKE PEGGY WINMEYER FROM

CBN NEWS AND ELIZABETH

DOLL.

AND AT THAT MOMENT, I

REALIZED I FELT LIKE I WAS

BEING CALLED TO ADVOCACY.

I WANTED TO SPEAK FOR THE

LEAST OF THESE, SPEAK FOR

THE UNBORN.

AND SO THAT WAS MY SORT OF

ESTHER MOMENT, WHEN I KNEW

I WAS BEING CALLED.

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMETHING TO IT, ISN'T IT,

WHEN THERE ARE MEN IN

AUTHORITY THAT GIVE THAT

FREEDOM AND PERMISSION,

FOR THE WOMEN TO WRITE

SOMETHING AND TO HAVE A

VOICE.

YES.

Wendy: YOU'RE A

KENTUCKY GIRL, RIGHT?

YES.

AND MY DAD WAS A PASTOR IN

APALATCHA, AND I CAME TO

WASHINGTON WITH NO SOCIAL

SKILLS.

I HAD A GOOD, SOUND

FAMILY.

Wendy: I'M FROM

SOUTHERN WEST VIRGINIA AND

YOU'RE FROM EASTERN

KENTUCKY, SO WE'RE

PRACTICALLY NEIGHBORS.

WELL, THE TITLE OF YOUR

BOOK IS CALLED "FEISTY AND

FEMININE," AND I JUST LOVE

THIS PICTURE.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS

TITLE?

I WANTED TO, FRANKLY,

HONESTLY REBRAND

CONSERVATIVE WOMEN.

I THINK THE LEFT DID A

REALLY GREAT JOB OF

MISCOMMUNICATING AND

OBFUSCATING WHO WE ARE.

AS THE LEADER OF

"CONCERNED WOMEN OF

AMERICA," I MEET

CONSERVATIVE WOMEN ALL

OVER THIS COUNTRY.

AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT

THEY'RE BRIGHT, THEIR

SASSY, THEY'RE THOUGHTFUL,

THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL, AND

THEY'RE COMMITTED.

AND, YOU KNOW, I WANTED TO

SORT OF REBRAND THAT AND

TELL THE WORLD WHO WE

REALLY ARE, AND AT THE

SAME TIME CALL THESE WOMEN

TO ACTION.

Wendy: IN OUR STEL

STILETTOS.

YES.

NO MORE SHOE SHAMING.

Wendy: WE HAVE ONE OF

THE MOST GORGEOUS FIRST

LADIES IN THE WORLD, AND

SHE IS CLASSY, AND SHE

LIKES TO WEAR HER HIGH

HEELS, AND THAT HAS BEEN

CRITICIZED.

I WEAR HIGH HEELS ON

AIRPLANES ALL OF THE TIME,

INCLUDING YESTERDAY.

AND I WROTE A PIECE IN

FOXNEWS.COM SPECIFICALLY

ON THIS.

Wendy: AFTER LIBERTY

YOU WENT TO WASHINGTON?

I DID.

Wendy: AND TALK ABOUT

SOME OF THE MENTORS YOU

HAD THERE AND THE

EXPERIENCE YOU HAD IN D.C.

YES.

AGAIN, WENDY, THIS IS ALL

GOD.

I HAD NO CONNECTIONS.

I'M A PREACHER'S KID AND I

DIDN'T KNOW ANYONE.

GOD OPENED DOORS.

I WENT TO WORK ON CAPITAL

MANAGEMENCAPITOLHILL, AND I LANDED AT

"CONCERNED WOMEN FOR

AMERICA" WHICH I HAD

ALREADY BEEN A MR. OF IN MEMBER OF

IN COLLEGE.

I WENT THERE FOR ABOUT SIX

YEARS ANDU WA AND WAS A YOUNG

LOBBYIST.

Wendy: AND YOU MET

YOUR HUSBAND THERE.

YES.

HE WAS WORKING FOR CHUCK

COLSON AT PRISON

FELLOWSHIP MINISTRIES.

HE IS WONDERFUL.

AND WE'VE BA BEEN MARRIED 21

YEARS.

WHAT AN AMAZING MAN.

HE WORKED FOR COLSON, AND

HE LEFT, AND I ENDED UP

WORKING FOR COLSON, TOO.

Wendy: I KNOW YOU GOT

PREGNANT PRETTY MUCH RIGHT

AFTER YOU GOT MARRIED.

AND YOU WERE OUT JOGGING

ONE DAY, AND YOU WERE

ATTACKED BY A MAN.

TELL US WHAT HAPPENED.

EARLY ON IN MY

PREGNANCY -- AND I'VE BEEN

A RUNNER SINCE MY 20s --

I WENT FOR A MORNING RUN,

AND A COMPLETE STRANGER

THAT I DIDN'T KNOW,

ATTACKED ME, DRUG ME DOWN

BEHIND AN EMBANKMENT.

HIS ATTENTION WAS TO RAPE

ME.

HE ACTUALLY ATTACKED TWO

OTHER WOMEN.

Wendy: YOU HEARD THE

HOLY SPIRIT SAY SOMETHING

TO YOU?

YES.

FIRST HE TOLD ME TO PAUSE

AT THE BEGINNING OF THE

HILL.

I DON'T SAY THIS LIGHTLY.

I'M NOT ACTUALLY NOT THE

GIRL WHO SAYS GOD TOLD ME.

I GENERALLY GET THAT

INFORMATION THROUGH THE

BIBLE.

BUT I DID HEAR THE HOLY

SPIRIT THAT DAY SAYING

PAUSE.

AND BECAUSE I PAUSED, A

MOTORIST SAW WHAT WAS

HAPPENING.

AND THE ASSAULT WAS

STOPPED BECAUSE SHE

STOPPED, A WOMAN STOPPED.

AND IT WAS PURELY FROM

GOD'S PROTECTION.

I DON'T KNOW WHY I WAS

PROTECTED.

THERE IS A LITTLE

SURVIVOR'S GUILT THERE,

BUT IT HAS GIVEN ME A

PLATFORM TO SPEAK FOR THE

LEAST OF THESE.

AND THE FACT WE'RE NOT

TESTING THE D.N.A. KITS

THAT ARE BEING COLLECTED

IN STATES.

I TALK ABOUT THAT IN MY

BOOK.

Wendy: AND YOU ALSO

TALK A LOT ABOUT MARRIAGE.

AND YOU SAY THAT MARRIAGE

IS A MESS IN AMERICA.

YES.

Wendy: CAN YOU TALK

ABOUT THAT?

WE'RE VERY COMFORTABLE

IN THE CHURCH TALKING

ABOUT GAY MARRIAGE OR

HOMOSEXUALITY OR THIS,

THAT, AND THE OTHER, BUT I I

THINK WE'RE MISSING A VERY

BIG PIECE OF IT.

FIRST GOD IS CALLING ON US

TO LEAD ON THE ISSUE OF

MARRIAGE WITH OUR OWN

MARRIAGES.

WE'RE HAVING AN EVENT IN

WASHINGTON, D.C., AND A

BIG PART OF THAT IS GOING

TO BE A REDEDICATION OF

OUR OWN MARRIAGES.

COHABITATION RATES ARE

ASTRONOMICAL IN THE U.S.

YOUNG PEOPLE ARE NOT

GETTING MARRIED.

IF THEY DO GET MARRIED,

THEY'RE GETTING MARRIED

MUCH LATER.

SO WE'VE GOT TO LEAD ON

THIS ISSUE BY BEING THE

ESTHERS, AND ADVOCATING

FOR GOD'S TRUTH AND THE

BEAUTY OF MARRIAGE AND

LIVING THAT OUT IN OUR

LIVES.

Wendy: AS CHRISTIANS,

ARE WE DOING ANY BETTER

THAN THE WORLD WHEN IT

COMES TO MARRIAGE?

THE NUMBERS ARE VERY

TELLING, THAT DIVORCE IS

ALIVE AND WELL IN THE

CHRISTIAN CHURCH.

IT STARTS IN OUR PULPITS.

WHEN I TALK TO PASTORS, I

URGE THEM TO PREACH THE

TRUTH.

PREACH WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

NOT JUST THE COMFORTABLE

PARTS OF IT, BUT THE

UNCOMFORTABLE PARTS OF IT,

BECAUSE WE NEED TO HEAR

IT.

Wendy: "CONCERNED

WOMEN FOR AMERICA" IS A

HUGE ADVOCATE OF MARRIAGE

AND IN FIGHTING FOR LIFE

AND PRO-LIFE ISSUES.

HOW CAN WE MAKE A

DIFFERENCE ON THE LIFE

ISSUE.

ROROE VS. WADE --

YES.

44 YEARS, ROE VS. WADE,

AND PEOPLE SAY IT IS

SETTLED.

LET ME JUST TELL YOU, IT

IS NOT.

AMERICA IS MUCH MORE

PRO-LIFE THAN OUR LAWS.

AND CHANGING PUBLIC POLICY

IS DOWNSTREAM OF PUBLIC

OPINION.

PUBLIC OPINION IS US.

THEY ARE CERTAINLY NOT IN

LINE WITH THE FACT OUR

CURRENT LAW ALLOWS

ABORTION AT ANY TIME AND

THERE IS GOVERNMENT

FUNDING.

WE'RE FUNDING PLANNED

PARENTHOOD AT THE RATE OF

$50500 MILLION A YEAR.

OUR TAX DOLLARS GO TO THE

NATION'S LARGEST ABORTION

PROVIDER, AND IT HAS TO

END.

Wendy: AND CONCERNED

WOMEN ARE TRYING TO GET IT

MOVED OVER TO COMMUNITY

HEALTH CLINICS.

WE'RE LOOKING TO SHIFT

THE MONEY FROM ABOUT 800

BRICK AND MORTAR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD CLINICS THAT

CLAIM THEY DO WOMEN'S

HEALTH BUT THEY MOSTLY DO

ABORTIONS --

Wendy: HOW IS THAT

GOING?

WE HAD IT ACTUALLY ALL

WORKED OUT IN THE HEALTH

CARE BILL THAT WENT DOWN

IN CONGRESS.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR OTHER

OPPORTUNITIES, AND WE'RE

GOING TO KEEP WORKING.

WE KNOW THAT THIS

PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP,

IS IN LINE WITH US ON THIS

ISSUE.

AND, BY THE WAY, HAS

AGREED AND LIVED UP TO

ONLY APPOINTING

CONSTITUTIONALIST JUDGES,

PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTAND THE

CONSTITUTION AND

UNDERSTAND THE RIGHT TO

LIFE.

GORSUCH IS A PERFECT

EXAMPLE OF THAT.

WE ARE AT A POINT IN

HISTORY WHERE WE CAN

REVERSE ROE VS. WADE AND

THROUGH IT BACK TO THE

STATES.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, THERE

IS A FIGHT AT THE STATE

LEVEL, AND THAT'S AN

EASIER PLACE TO WORK.

BUT THE HEAVY HAND OF

GOVERNMENTS FORCING STATES

LIKE MISSISSIPPI AND WEST

VIRGINIA AND TENNESSEE AND

KENTUCKY TO DO AND PAY FOR

ABORTION THAS THAT ARE AGAINST

THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE HAS

GOT TO END.

Wendy: YOU SAY IT IS

TIME FOR CONSERVATIVE

WOMEN TO FIND THEIR VOICE.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

WENDY, I BELIEVE THIS

IS OUR ESTHER MOMENT.

IF YOU TAKE THE TIME TO

READ THE BOOK OF ESTHER,

YOU SEE A WOMAN WHO DIDN'T

PARTICULARLY WANT TO BE IN

THE POSITION OF AUTHORITY,

BUT GOD BROUGHT HER TO

THAT.

AND SHE WAS ABLE TO FIRST

PRAY AND THEN PREPARE,

WHICH IS WHY I WROTE THE

BOOK, AS A TOOL BOOK TO

HAVE GOOD, SOLID

INFORMATION, STATISTICS,

TO LEAN INTO THE

CONVERSATION.

AND THEN SHE SPOKE TRUTH.

AND SHE SPOKE TRUTH TO

POWER.

I BELIEVE THAT IS WHAT

WOMEN IN AMERICA, WOMEN

LIKE US, CONSERVATIVE

WOMEN OF FAITH, ARE BEING

CALLED TO DO RIGHT NOW.

AND WE HOPE TO HELP YOU DO

THAT AT "CONCERNED WOMEN

FOR AMERICA," AND WITH OUR

BOOK.

Wendy: PENNY'S BOOK

IS CALLED "FEISTY AND

FEMININE," AND IT IS

AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS

ARE SOLD.

AND YOU CAN HEAR MORE FROM

PENNY.

TO WATCH THAT, GO TO

GOD BLESS YOU SO MUCH FOR

WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

AN ACCIDENT WHEN SHE WAS

EIGHT YEARS OLD LEFT THIS

WOMAN IN PAIN FOR NEARLY

50 YEARS.

I WOULD HAVE MIGRAINES

AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK.

I COULDN'T EVEN BRUSH MY

TEETH.

I COULDN'T OPEN MY MOUTH

ENOUGH TO GET A TOOTHBRUSH

IN.

Wendy: SEE HOW SHE

GOT INSTANT RELIEF WITHOUT

SURGERY.

THAT'S COMING UP LATER ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

TRANSGENDERS CAN

CONTINUE SERVING IN THE

MILITARY FOR NOW.

PRESIDENT TRUMP REVERSED

AN OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

POLICY ALLOWING

TRANSGENDERS IN THE

MILITARY.

BUT "U.S.A. TODAY" SAYS

JIM MATTIS WILL WAIT FOR

THE RESULTS OF THE STUDY

BEFORE IMPLEMENTING THE

NEW ORDER.

AND THOSE SERVING SHOULD

BE EVALUATED BASED ON

THEIR ABILITY TO DEPLOY

FOR SERVICE.

> PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

MOVING ON FROM HIS TRIP TO

TEXAS YESTERDAY.

TODAY HE IS STARTING HIS

PUBLIC PUSH FOR HIS PLANS

TO REFORM THE TAX CODE AND

CUT TAXES TO HELP PICK UP

ECONOMIC GROWTH.

THE PRESIDENT IS SPEAKING

IN MISSOURI TODAY, LAYING

OUT REASONS WHY HE THINKS

THE TAX BURDEN HAS TO BE

REDUCED.

BUT THE DETAILS WILL BE

COMING LATER FROM THE

PRESIDENT'S TEAM AND KEY

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.

> REMEMBER, YOU CAN

ALWAYS GET THE LATEST FROM

CBN NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE, cbnnews.com.

WENDY WILL BE BACK WITH

MUCH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: THIS YOUNG MAN

SPENDS HIS DAYS EXPLORING

CAVES, BUT HE ISN'T A BOY

SEARCHING FOR ADVENTURE.

HE IS DESPERATELY TRYING

TO FIND WATER.

Terry: AFTER SOME ZOA

DIED, HIS SON TOOK OVER

HIS RESPONSIBILITIES.

ONE OF HIS BIGGEST JOBS

WAS FETCHING WATER FROM A

CAVE FAR AWAY.

I BECAME THE MAN OF THE

FAMILY.

MY BROTHER IS MY HERO.

ONE TIME I SAW A SNAKE.

I WAS AFRAID HE WOULD BITE

US.

MY BROTHER RUSHED IN FRONT

OF ME AND TOOK CARE OF

EVERYTHING.

Terry: ENLIN DROVE

THE SNAKE AWAY, AND HE AND

HIS SISTER MANAGED TO

BRING BACK A FEW BUCKETS

OF WATER.

BUT AS USUAL, IT WAS

DIRTY.

IT WAS MUDDY, AND THERE

WERE SMALL BUGS AND LEAVES

IN IT.

WE DIDN'T LIKE TO DRINK

IT.

Terry: SUMMER ZOA

RARELY WASHED HER

CHILDREN'S CLOTHES AND SHE

WAS ALWAYS AFRAID THEY

WOULD GET SICK.

EVEN THOUGH SHE WORKED

HARD IN CONSTRUCTION, SHE

ONLY MADE $8 A DAY,

LEAVING VERY LITTLE MONEY

FOR FOOD.

WE HAVEN'T HAD MUCH

MEAT SINCE MY DAD DIED.

AND WE DON'T EVEN HAVE

EGGS.

I WAS WEAK A LOT.

SOMETIMES I COULD BARELY

LIFT A STONE.

I HATED TO SEE MY KIDS

SUFFER SO MUCH.

I TRIED SO HARD.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO

DO.

I WORRIED THAT THINGS

WOULD NEVER CHANGE.

Terry: A LOCAL

PASTOR, WHO KNEW ABOUT

THIS WIDOW'S STRUGGLE,

TOLD CBN.

AND WE MADE SURE THEY GOT

THEIR OWN CISTERN AND

WATER FILTER.

WE HAVE LOTS OF CLEAN

WATER NOW.

FINALLY MY MOM DOESN'T

HAVE TO CARRY WATER.

AND WE CAN EVEN WASH OUR

FACES AND FEET.

Terry: AND WE HELPED

MRS. ZOA START A LIVESTOCK

BUSINESS SO SHE CAN TAKE

BETTER CARE OF HER FAMILY.

THE PIG WILL GIVE BIRTH

TO BABY PIGS, AND WE'LL

HAVE LOTS OF MONEY.

I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT MY CHILDREN ANYMORE.

WE'RE ALL SO HAPPY.

OUR LIFE IS GETTING

BETTER AND BETTER.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO

HELPED US.

Wendy: CLEAN WATER

CHANGES EVERYTHING AND

BRINGS SO MUCH HAPPINESS

TO THAT LITTLE FAMILY.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE A PART

OF BRINGING THAT KIND OF

JOY TO PEOPLE ALL OVER THE

WORLD, YOU CAN DO THAT.

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GO TO

YOUR PHONES AND JUST SAY,

YES, I WANT TO JOIN "THE

WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING

> UP NEXT, A TWO-TIME

OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALLIST AND

THREE TIME WORLD CHAMPION.

I COMPETED IN

HURRICANES, I'VE COMPETED

IN BLIZZARDS, AND YOU HAVE

TO PERFORM EVERY TIME.

AND THERE IS NO GREATER

CHALLENGE THAN TRYING TO

BEAT YOURSELF EVERY TIME.

Wendy: HE TALKS ABOUT

THE PRESSURES BEHIND HIS

PURSUIT OF PERFECTION,

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

PERFORMING PERFECTLY EVERY

TIME, THAT'S WHAT SKEET

SHOOTER VINCENT HANCOCK

SAYS IS REQUIRED TO

COMPETE IN THIS SPORT.

HE IS THE FIRST TO WIN THE

GOLD IN TWO CONSECUTIVE

OLYMPIC GAMES, AND VINCENT

GIVES ALL OF THE CREDIT TO

GOD.

I DO FEEL LIKE GOD IS

THERE SAYING THIS IS WHAT

YOU'RE MEANT TO DO.

THIS IS YOUR PASSION.

I PUT IT IN YOU FOR A

REASON.

THAT'S WHY I SAY I WON THE

ONLY GOLD MEDAL THAT

COUNTS.

I'M VINCENT HANCOCK, AND

GOD MADE ME FAITHFUL.

Andrew: TWO-TIME

OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL LIST MEDALLIST AND

THREE TIME WORLD CHAMPION

KNEW THAT THE WORLD OF

SKEET LIT THE COMPASSION

INSIDE OF HIM.

YOU HAVE TO EXECUTE

PERFECTLY EVERY SINGLE

TIME.

I'VE COMPETED IN

HURRICANES, I'VE COMPETED

IN BLIZZARDS, AND YOU HAVE

TO BE ABLE TO PERFORM

PERFECTLY EVERY TIME.

TO ME THERE IS NO GREATER

CHALLENGE THAN TRYING TO

BEAT YOURSELF EVERY TIME.

Andrew: HE WON HIS

FIRST WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

AT 16, RECOGNIZING THAT

SELF-RELIANCE AND

DETERMINATION WERE KEY TO

HIS SUCCESS.

IF I HAVE MY BEST DAY,

I KNOW I'M NEVER GOING TO

LOSE.

BECAUSE MY BEST DAY IS

PERFECTION.

PULL!

I WORKED HARD FOR YEARS

AND YEARS AND YEARS TO GET

TO THAT POINT.

Andrew: IN 2008, HE

MARRIED REBECCA.

SHE QUIETLY TRIED TO KEEP

HIM GROUNDED IN CHRIST.

I WAS TRYING TO ALWAYS

ENCOURAGE HIM TO KNOW THAT

GOD IS IN CONTROL.

AND IN ANY TIMES OF WORRY

OR ANY TIMES OF NEED, HEY,

GOD IS WITH US.

AND GOD HAS OUR BACK.

I HAD ALWAYS THOUGHT OF

MYSELF AS BEING A

CHRISTIAN.

BUT LOOKING BACK NOW, I

WAS ANYTHING BUT.

I WAS FOCUSED ON THE GOLD,

AND THAT WAS MY ONLY

THOUGHT PROCESS.

I BASICALLY DRUG HER ALONG

WITH ME.

Andrew: VINCENT WAS A

WORLD CHAMPION AND FAVORED

TO WIN THE GOLD.

HE DID, AND RODE THE HIGH

FOR A WHILE.

I RODE THAT HIGH AND I

WON THE WORLD

CHAMPIONSHIPS IN 2009 FOR

MY SECOND TIME.

Andrew: BUT IN 2010,

VINCENT ONLY MEDALLED ONCE

AND BEGAN GROWING

IRRITABLE AND DEMANDING AT

HOME.

AND THEN IT KIND OF UL CUL

CULMINATED IN MY WORST

YEAR.

WHERE I WAS COMPETING THE

WORST I HAD EVER COMPETED.

I WASN'T HAVING FUN

ANYMORE, AND I DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

AND I WAS TRYING TO

ENCOURAGE HIM AND TELL

HIM, JUST PRAY AND JUST

ASK GOD, AND BE AT THAT

PLACE WITH GOD SO HE CAN

LEAD YOU TO WHERE HE WANTS

YOU TO GO.

Andrew: FINALLY HIS

WIFE'S WORDS SANK IN AND

HE TOOK HER ADVICE.

I WAS FRUSTRATED AT

HER, I WAS FRUSTRATED AT

MYSELF, AND I WAS

FRUSTRATED AT GOD.

I PRAYED FOR HOURS THAT

NIGHT AND CRIED FOR HOURS.

THAT NIGHT GOD STARTED

OPENING UP MY EYES AND

SHOWING ME THE THINGS THAT

I HAD DONE, THE THINGS I

HAD DONE WRONG.

SO IT ALLOWED ME TO KIND

OF FIX THINGS AND SAY,

GOD, YOU'RE RIGHT.

I'M SO SORRY THAT I'VE

GOTTEN TO THIS POINT WHERE

I KNOW THAT I WANT TO BE

SUCCESSFUL IN MY SPORT,

BUT I HAVE TO FOCUS AND

YOU AND I HAVE TO FOCUS ON

MY FAMILY FIRST.

OUR RELATIONSHIP HAS

BLOSSOMED INTO SOMETHING

THAT IT HAS NEVER BEEN

BEFORE.

AND IT IS SO, SO MUCH

BETTER NOW.

Andrew: A YEAR LATER

IN LONDON, VINCENT BECAME

THE FIRST SKEET SHOOTER TO

EVER REPEAT AS AN OLYMPIC

CHAMPION.

HE CREDITS GOD FOR IT ALL,

THE WINS AND THE CHANGE OF

HEART.

HE SHOWED ME THE PERSON

THAT I WANTED TO BE.

AND HE ALSO SHOWED ME I

CAN CONTINUE DOING WHAT

I'M DOING AND STILL BE THE

PERSON HE NEEDS ME TO BE.

HE TRULY CARES ABOUT

THE PLATFORM GOD HAS GIVEN

HIM, ONLY TO GIVE IT BACK

TO GOD.

FOR VINCENT, IT IS NOT

ABOUT ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

IT IS ABOUT WHAT GOD HAS

DONE THROUGH HIM FOR GOD.

Andrew: IN 2016, TO

THE SURPRISE OF MANY,

VINCENT FAILED TO REACH

THE OLYMPICS FINALS IN

RIO.

BUT HIS FAITH IN GOD

WASN'T SHAKEN.

FAITHFUL TO ME MEANS

TRUSTING.

FOR ME, AT THE BEGINNING

OF MY CAREER, I TRUSTED

ONLY MYSELF.

I TRUSTED THAT I WANT TO

GO AND WIN A GOLD MEDAL.

BUT TO ME, GOD HAS MADE ME

FAITHFUL BECAUSE NOW I

KNOW WHAT FAITH TRULY IS.

IT IS HAVING A TRUST IN

WHAT GOD HAS PUT IN MY

LIFE.

I TRUST IN HIM.

I BELIEVE IN HIM.

I LOVE HIM.

AND I AM FAITHFUL TO THE

ASPECT OF HE IS MY GOD.

Wendy: IT IS EASY TO

TRUST GOD WHEN EVERYTHING

IS SUNNY AND EVERYTHING IS

GOING GREAT, ISN'T IT?

WHEN WE HAVE OUR STRENGTH

AND WE CAN PUT OUR FAITH

IN OUR OWN ABILITIES.

BUT WHAT IS EVERYTHING

FALLS APART?

WILL YOU STILL TRUST GOD?

IT'S NOT AS EASY.

BUT GOD IS STILL FAITHFUL.

HE STILL LOVES YOU.

HE IS A GOD OF THE

TURNAROUND.

EVEN WHEN VINCENT DIDN'T

WIN THE GOLD, HE WAS STILL

HAPPY BECAUSE HE WASN'T

PUTTING ALL OF HIS

HAPPINESS INTO PERFECTION.

WHEN WE DO THAT, WE'RE

JUST MISERABLE BECAUSE

NOBODY IS PERFECT, EXCEPT

JESUS.

IF YOU'RE STRUGGLING TODAY

AND YOU NEED SOMEBODY TO

AGREE WITH YOU IN PRAYER

TODAY, WE HAVE WONDERFUL

PHONE COUNSELLORS THAT ARE

STANDING BY, WHO WOULD

LOVE TO TALK WITH YOU AND

PRAY WITH YOU.

GIVE THEM A CALL.

THE NUMBER ON YOUR SCREEN,

1-800-700-7000.

IF THAT'S YOU, THEY WOULD

LOVE TO PRAY WITH YOU.

> UP NEXT, THE STORY OF

SEVEN BROTHERS RAISED ON

THE ORIGINAL "SUPERBOOK"

SERIES.

SEE HOW THEY'RE NOW

SHARING THE NEW

"SUPERBOOK" WITH THEIR

KIDS.

Wendy: THAT WAS OUR

GOOD-LOOKING CONTROL ROOM

RIGHT THERE.

WAY TO GO, GUYS.

"SUPERBOOK" IS BRINGING

THE STORIES OF THE BIBLE

TO THE CHILDREN OF THE

WORLD, ONE FAMILY AT A

TIME.

YOU'RE ABOUT TO MEET A

FAMILY THAT IS CREATING

THEIR OWN "SUPERBOOK"

LEGACY.

MATT OLSON AND HIS SIX

BROTHERS WERE RAISED WITH

THE ORIGINAL "SUPERBOOK"

SERIES, AND NOW A NEW

GENERATION OF OLSONS IS

FOLLOWING IN THEIR

FOOTSTEPS AND BEYOND.

Reporter: GRANDMA

OLSON KNOWS HOW TO THROW A

FUN PARTY FOR HER

GRANDKIDS.

POP A LITTLE POPCORN AND

PLAY AN EPISODE OF

"SUPERBOOK."

I GET REALLY EXCITED TO

COME OVER AND WATCH

"SUPERBOOK."

IT IS SO GOOD TO HAVE

YOU HOME.

I SEE MY GRANDCHILDREN

SMILING AND LAUGHING,

TOTALLY INVOLVED WITH THE

STORY.

YEAH, IT MAKES THE

BIBLE COME ALIVE.

I CAN REALLY FEEL IT.

I JUST WANT TO LEARN A

LOT.

YOU CAN LOOK UP WHAT

"SUPERBOOK" MOVIE YOU'RE

GOING TO BE WATCHING.

AND IT IS EXACTLY TRUE

WITH THE BIBLE.

Reporter: THAT'S

SOMETHING GRANDMA OLSON'S

SON LOVES ABOUT

"SUPERBOOK."

HE AND HIS BROTHERS WERE

RAISED ON THE "SUPERBOOK"

SERIES.

I'M, LIKE, HEY THAT IS

IN THE BIBLE AND THEY'RE

ACCURATELY PORTRAYING THE

STORIES.

AND EVEN THE MINUTE

DETAILS OF WHAT GO INTO

THEIR STORIES, AND IT

REALLY GETS MY KIDS

INTERESTED, AND I LOVE IT.

Reporter: TODAY

MATT'S KIDS HAVE A TOOL HE

NEVER HAD: THE FREE

"SUPERBOOK" APP.

IT TELLS YOU ABOUT THE

CHARACTERS, THE ARTIFACTS,

AND THE GAMES ARE AWESOME.

IT IS AN AWESOME PLACE TO

GO TO ON THE PHONE.

I LOVE THE "SUPERBOOK"

APP BECAUSE YOU CAN GO ON

THERE ANY TIME YOU WANT

TO.

IF YOU'RE FEELING AFRAID

OR SOMETHING IS GOING

ON...

THERE IS SO MUCH

DARKNESS IN THE VIDEOS AND

SOME OF THE THINGS THAT

THE KIDS WATCH THESE DAYS,

SO MUCH VIOLENCE AND

IMMORTALITY.

YOU HAVE SOMETHING LIKE

"SUPERBOOK" THAT BRINGS

LIGHT, THAT WOULD

COUNTER-BALANCE THIS

DARKNESS THAT HAS COME

INTO THEIR LIFE.

I'M VERY THRILLED THAT

THAT LEGACY IS BEING

PASSED DOWN TO THE

GRANDKIDS.

Reporter: AND GRANDMA

OLSON IS GLAD HER

PARTNERSHIP WITH CBN IS

BRINGING "SUPERBOOK" AND

THE STORIES OF THE BIBLE

TO THE CHILDREN OF THE

WORLD.

IT SEEMS TO BE ACCEPTED

WITH ALL GOVERNMENTS, EVEN

THOSE YOU WOULD THINK

WOULD NOT ACCEPT IT ARE

ACCEPTING IT.

THIS WILL HELP THE KIDS

WHEN THEY'RE OLDER.

THEY'RE REMEMBER THESE

THINGS THAT THEY LEARNED,

WHERE THEY CAN TRUST THEIR

HEAVENLY FATHER TO TAKE

CARE OF THEM, TO LEAD

THEM.

* CHANGE MY LIFE AND MAKE

IT NEW *

* AND HELP ME, LORD, TO

LIVE FOR YOU *

*

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: JUST ONE

QUESTION...

DO YOU KNOW WHERE

THEY'RE GOING TO MAKE

THEIR NEXT "SUPERBOOK"

MOVIE?

[LAUGHTER]

Wendy: WHEN YOU JOIN

CLUB, YOU'LL RECEIVE THREE

COPIES OF THE NEWEST

EPISODE OF "SUPERBOOK" FOR

YOUR RECURRING GIFT OF $25

ON A CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD.

> UP NEXT, SEE HOW A

WOMAN IS INSTANTLY HEALED

AFTER ALMOST 50 YEARS OF

PAIN.

PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: IMAGINE BEING

IN PAIN FOR NEARLY 50

YEARS?

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT LIFE

WAS LIKE FOR CATHY, UNTIL

ONE DAY WHEN SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

IT WAS DIFFICULT TO EAT

AT TIMES.

IT WAS CONSTANTLY

CLICKING.

Reporter: CATHY

SUFFERED WITH JAW PAIN FOR

YEARS.

IT STARTED WITH A POOL

ACCIDENT WHEN SHE WAS 8.

I WENT TO JUMP IN THE

POOL, AND I SPUN AROUND,

AND THE LOWER PART OF MY

CHIN CAUGHT THE EDGE --

THE CONCRETE EDGE OF THE

POOL.

Reporter: THE CUT ON

HER CHIN HEALED, BUT THE

PAIN IN HER JAW NEVER WENT

AWAY.

A FEW YEARS LATER, SHE

LEARNED SHE HAD T.M.J., SO

THE DOCTOR ORDERED A

MOUTHPIECE FOR HER TO WEAR

TO HELP ALIGN HER JAW.

I WAS SUPPOSED TO WEAR

IT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

BUT IT DIDN'T WORK, AND

THE DOCTOR SUGGESTED

SURGERY.

AND I WAS NOT GOING TO DO

SURGERY.

Reporter: SO CATHY

FIGURED IT WAS SOMETHING

SHE WOULD HAVE TO LIVE

WITH.

I WAS EATING SOFT FOOD.

I COULDN'T EAT ANYTHING

HARD OR ANYTHING LIKE ICE

OR ANYTHING THAT WAS

CRUNCHY.

I WAS SUFFERING WITH

HEADACHES.

AND I WAS TAKING EXCEDRIN

OR ASPIRIN.

JUST ABOUT EVERY DAY.

I WOULD HAVE MIGRAINES AT

LEAST ONCE A WEEK.

Reporter: THE PAIN

MEDS HELPED HER FUNCTION,

SO SHE KEPT TAKING THEM

AND ATE SOFT FOOD FOR

NEARLY 50 YEARS.

BUT ONE MORNING SHE COULD

BARELY MOVE HER MOUTH AT

ALL.

I COULDN'T BRUSH MY

TEETH.

I COULDN'T OPEN IT ENOUGH

TO GET A TOOTH BRUSH IN.

Reporter: FOR TWO

DAYS, THE ONLY FOOD SHE

COULD EAT WAS IN

SQUEEZEABLE POUCHES.

THEN WHILE WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB," CATHY SAW TERRY

MEEUWSEN PRAYING.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE A

PROBLEM WITH YOUR JAW.

IT IS OUT OF ALIGNMENT.

AND GOD IS HEALING IT.

I CLAIMED IT

IMMEDIATELY, AND I PUT MY

HAND ON MY JAW AND I

OPENED MY JAW, AND I WAS,

LIKE, WOW, AND I KEPT

OPENING IT A LITTLE BY

LITTLE, FURTHER AND

FURTHER.

AND I THOUGHT, THIS IS ME.

THIS IS ME.

GOD IS HEALING ME.

IT WAS A WONDERFUL

FEELING.

Reporter: CATHY'S JAW

WAS HEALED.

THE NEXT DAY AND TO

THIS DAY, I'VE NEVER HAD

ANYMORE PAIN WITH IT.

I DON'T HAVE THE HEADACHES

ANYMORE.

AND I CAN OPEN MY MOUTH AS

WIDE AS I NEED TO.

NOW I'LL EAT ANYTHING AND

NOT EVEN THINK TWICE ABOUT

IT.

Reporter: TODAY CATHY

IS SO GRATEFUL TO BE ABLE

TO EAT WHATEVER SHE WANTS

AND ENJOY LIFE TO THE

FULLEST, FREE OF

MIGRAINES.

DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK

GOD FOR HEALING.

DON'T THINK THAT YOU HAVE

TO DESERVE IT FIRST.

GOD LOVES US ALL WHERE

WE'RE AT, IN SPITE OF OUR

SHORTCOMINGS, AND HE WANTS

US TO BE HEALTHY AND

WHOLE.

AND FIRST AND FOREMOST, HE

WANTS US TO BE HAPPY.

Wendy: I LOVE THAT,

DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK GOD

FOR HEALING.

HE LOVES TO HEAL US.

HE WANTS TO HEAL YOU.

AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO FEEL

LIKE YOU DESERVE IT.

JUST LIKE SHE WAS SAYING.

PSALM 103 SAYS HE FORGIVES

ALL OF OUR SINS AND HEALS

ALL OF OUR DISEASES.

HERE IS A PRAISE REPORT.

LOLA FROM LAS VEGAS HAD

PAIN IN HER BACK AND

STOMACH FOR FOUR MONTHS.

THE DOCTOR DIAGNOSED HER

WITH SEVEN KIDNEY STONES

AND A RENAL CYST.

SHE WAS HOME IN SEVERE

PAIN, WAITING FOR THE

DOCTOR TO DETERMINE THE

BEST COURSE OF TREATMENT.

SHE WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" AND SAW THE

TESTIMONY OF A LADY WHO

HAD THE SAME ISSUES SHE

WAS HAVING, AND GOD HEALED

HER.

SHE CALLED THE CBN PRAYER

CENTER AND PRAYED WITH A

PARTNER FOR HEALING, AND

IMMEDIATELY SHE FELT

BETTER, AND AFTER A FEW

HOURS ALL OF HER PAIN WAS

GONE.

SHE RETURNED TO THE DOCTOR

A FEW DAYS LATER, AND HE

WAS AMAZED, ALL OF THE

KIDNEY STONES AND THE

CYSTS WERE GONE.

PRAISE THE LORD.

I FEEL RIGHT NOW THAT

THERE IS SOMEONE -- YOU'VE

HAD AN ABORTION AND YOU

GRIEVING.

YOU ARE IN SEVERE GRIEF

AND SORROW, AND GOD IS

SAYING TO YOU RIGHT NOW,

HE LOVES YOU.

HE KNOWS WHAT YOU'RE GOING

THROUGH.

AND YOU ARE FORGIVEN.

AND YOU ARE GOING TO NOW

HELP OTHER WOMEN WHO HAVE

BEEN THROUGH THIS.

I ALSO BELIEVE RIGHT NOW

THAT GOD IS HEALING ALL

KINDS OF CANCERS.

IF YOU'VE GOT CANCER IN

YOUR BODY, JUST START

PRAISING GOD AND RECEIVE

THAT HEALING.

GOD IS A GOD WHO HEALS.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY

NOTHING TOO HARD FOR HIM.

AND ANOTHER THING I WANT

TO PRAY FOR, AND YOU

PROBABLY WANT TO JOIN ME

AS WELL, IS THE FOLKS IN

TEXAS.

CAN WE JUST PRAY FOR THEM

RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, WE LIFT UP OUR

BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND

ALL OF THE FOLKS SUFFERING

SO MUCH IN THE HOUSTON

AREA FROM THESE FLOODS.

AND WE ASK THAT, LORD,

THAT YOU WOULD COMFORT

THEM.

THOSE WHO HAVE LOST LOVED

ONES, AND THOSE WHO HAVE

LOST LOVED ONES AND

THEY'RE IN SHELTERS --

FATHER I PRAY, IN JESUS'

NAME, WE AGREE THAT YOU

ARE GOING TO PROVIDE FOR

THEM AND YOU'RE GOING TO

GIVE THEM JOY IN THE MIDST

OF THIS STORM.

GOD, WE KNOW YOU CAN DO

IT, YOU'RE FAITHFUL.

> WE LEAVE YOU TODAY

WITH THIS POWER MINUTE

FROM LUKE: "FOR WITH GOD,

NOTHING WILL BE

IMPOSSIBLE."

> TOMORROW, MEET

HERCULES' LEADING LADY AND

THE REAL-LIFE OF KEVIN

SORBO.

SAM SORBO WILL JOIN US

TOMORROW ON "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
