COMING UP...THE

INCREDIBLE STORY OF THE

SLUM KID WHO STRUCK IT

RICH.

AND THEN WENT RIGHT BACK

TO THE STREETS.

I WILL NEVER, EVER WORK

FOR MONEY AGAIN.

MEET THE MAN BEHIND THE

NEW MOVIE "MULLY."

THESE ARE ALL OF YOUR

BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

THEN...A WAR HERO COMES

HOME A VERY DIFFERENT MAN.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHO HE

WAS.

I WAS IN A REALLY,

REALLY DARK PLACE.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

ONCE AGAIN.

IT IS A CRAZY WORLD WE

LIVE IN.

HURRICANES OF MASSIVE

PROPORTIONS, WILDFIRES OUT

OF CONTROL IN THE WEST --

AND GUESS WHAT?

THE HEAVIEST SNOWSTORM, I

THINK IN HISTORY, IN A

LITTLE TOWN CALLED HIBER,

IN MONTANA.

Wendy: THIS WEEKEND?

Pat: YEAH.

THIS WEEKEND, THREE INCHES

OF SNOW.

Wendy: ALREADY.

Pat: ALREADY.

THEY SET A RECORD OF SOME

KIND.

IT'S CRAZY, THE KIND OF

WORLD WE LIVE IN.

AND IT IS ALSO CRAZY --

THIS MAN WHO DID THIS

TERRIBLE ATTACK, THEY HAVE

DEVELOPED, WE JUST

LEARNED -- AND I HOPE I'M

ACCURATE IN WHAT I SAY --

IS THAT HE WAS ON AN

ANTI-DEPRESSANT.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE LOOKED

BACK AT ALMOST EVERY ONE

OF THESE CRAZY SHOOTERS,

AND THEY ARE ON SOME KIND

OF ANTI-DEPRESSANT DRUG.

AND THESE THINGS CAUSE

PEOPLE TO HAVE, WELL,

DELUSIONS AND WHAT HAVE

YOU.

HE OBVIOUSLY CAREFULLY

PLANNED HIS ATTACK.

HE FIRED IN A CROWD IN LAS

VEGAS FOR UP TO 11

MINUTES.

AUTHORITIES SAY THEY'RE

CONFIDENT THEY CAN FIGURE

OUT WHY HE CARRIED OUT HIS

MASSACRE AT A COUNTRY

MUSIC CONCERT.

THE WORST MASSACRE IN THE

HISTORY OF THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE

LIVE IN DANGEROUS, CRAZY

TIMES.

Wendy: WE REALLY DO.

BUT INVESTIGATORS ARE

COUNTING ON HELP FROM

PADDOCK'S GIRLFRIEND, WHO

IS NOW BACK IN THE U.S.

AND THEY HAVE RELEASED

POLICE BODY CAM VIDEO

SHOWING THE FRANTIC

MOMENTS BEFORE THEY FOUND

THE SHOOTER.

HEATHER SELLS BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Heather: THE BODY CAM

VIDEO FROM POLICE SHOWS

CHAOS AND CONFUSION AS THE

ATTACK UNFOLDED.

EVERYBODY STAY DOWN!

STAY DOWN!

Heather: THE VIDEO

ALSO SHOWS POLICE DOING

WHATEVER THEY COULD TO

HELP CONCERT GOERS ESCAPE

AND SAVE LIVES.

YOU GUYS, GET DOWN!

GO THAT WAY!

Heather:

INVESTIGATORS SAY STEPHEN

PADDOCK WAS METICULOUS IN

PLANNING THE ATTACK.

HE SET UP CAMERAS INSIDE

HIS HOTEL ROOM, AND ON A

SERVICE CART OUTSIDE HIS

DOOR, TO FIND ANYONE

COMING FOR HIM.

A HOTEL SECURITY GUARD WHO

APPROACHED HIS ROOM DURING

THE RAMPAGE WAS SHOT IN

THE LEG.

HE FIRED OFF AND ON FOR

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN NINE AND

11 MINUTES.

Heather: AUTHORITIES

HAVE FOUND ALMOST TWO

DOZEN GUNS WITH HIM AT THE

HOTEL, ALONG WITH DEVICES

THAT CAN ALLOW A RIFLE TO

FIRE CONTINUOUSLY, LIKE AN

AUTOMATIC WEAPON.

BUT WHAT THEY WOULD REALLY

LIKE TO KNOW IS WHAT

MOTIVATED PADDOCK TO PLAN

AND EXECUTE THE DEADLIEST

MASS SHOOTING IN MODERN

U.S. HISTORY.

PROFILERS THINK THERE MAY

HAVE BEEN A MAJOR TRIGGER

IN HIS LIFE, A GREAT LOSS

OR BREAKUP OR NEWS OF A

TERMINAL DISEASES.

HE BOUGHT AN ANTI-ANXIETY

DRUG IN JUNE.

STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT

SUCH DRUGS CAN TRIGGER

AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR.

PADDOCK'S GIRLFRIEND,

MARILOU DANLEY, RETURNED

FROM THE PHILIPPINES TO

LOS ANGELES LATE TUESDAY.

PADDOCK TRANSFERRED

$100,000 TO THE

PHILIPPINES IN THE DAYS

BEFORE THE SHOOTING.

IN LAS VEGAS, MORE THAN

500 PEOPLE ARE RECOVERING

FROM INJURIES IN THE

ATTACK.

45 WERE IN CRITICAL

CONDITION, AND SURVIVORS

ARE STILL TRYING TO

PROCESS WHAT HAPPENED.

IT STILL HASN'T, LIKE,

FULLY HIT ME.

IT IS KIND OF STARTING TO,

BUT NOT FULLY.

IT WAS SO BAD.

I JUST KEEP SEEING IT IN

MY MIND, STILL, AND IT

HAUNTS ME.

Heather: ACROSS LAS

VEGAS, MEMORIALS ARE

POPPING UP AS FAMILY AND

FRIENDS ATTEMPT TO HONOR

THOSE WHO DIED AND THOSE

WOUNDED IN THIS HISTORIC

TRAGEDY.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, HEATHER.

I REALLY BELIEVE, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS TIME

THAT WE AS A NATION ORDER

THE PSYCHIATRISTS AND

THOSE WHO PRESCRIBE AND

PRODUCE THESE

ANTI-DEPRESSANT DRUGS TO

TEST OUT THE SIDE EFFECTS,

WHICH ARE CAUSING, IN MY

OPINION, MANY OF THESE

TRAGEDIES.

THESE PEOPLE ARE REALLY

NOT QUITE IN THEIR SENSES.

THEY'RE DRIVEN TO INSANE

ACTS.

AND THEY SHOW AGGRESSION

THAT SHOULD NOT BE SHOWN.

IF THIS IS THE CASE, THEN

WE MAY BE DRUGGING PEOPLE

INTO A STATE WHEREBY THEY

GO OUT AND KILL PEOPLE.

I THINK SOMETHING HAS GOT

TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS.

THIS IS ONE PAPER IN LAS

VEGAS THAT BRINGS THIS

STORY, AND I DON'T KNOW IF

ALL OF THE FACTS ARE TRUE.

BUT IT HAS SHOWN UP IN A

NUMBER OF THESE OTHER

ATTACKS, WHERE YOU HAVE

THESE MASS SHOOTINGS.

PEOPLE RUN AMUCK.

AND THEY DO THINGS THAT

NORMAL HUMAN BEINGS

SHOULDN'T DO.

IF WE ARE DRUGGING THEM

INTO THAT STATE, THEN I

THINK IT IS WAY OVERDUE

THAT BE HAVE CONTROLS OF

THIS.

IT ISN'T SO MUCH GUN

CONTROL, BECAUSE YOU'RE

NOT GOING TO TAKE GUNS

AWAY FROM THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE.

THERE ARE 300 MILLION OF

THEM OUT THERE ON THE

STREET.

THERE IS NO WAY YOU'RE

GOING TO GET THEM ALL IN.

BUT THE THING THAT MAYBE

WE CAN CONTROL IS THIS

FARPHARMAACOPIA THAT IS

COMING OUT.

> MANY IN THE CITY OF

LAS VEGAS HAVE TURNED TO

PRAYER AS THEY HONOR THE

VICTIMS OF THIS DEADLY

ATTACK.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT.

John: THE CITY IS

COMING TOGETHER AS

PRESIDENT TRUMP ARRIVES

TODAY FOR A VISIT AFTER

THE TRAGEDY.

CBN'S BEN KENNEDY SPOKE TO

SOME OF THE SURVIVORS OF

THE SUNDAY NIGHT ASSAULT

AND THEY TOLD HIM STORIES

OF FAITH, PRAYER, AND

HEROISM.

HERE IS HIS REPORT FROM

LAS VEGAS.

Reporter: IT IS

ANOTHER SOMBER DAY HERE IN

LAS VEGAS, AS THE CITY AND

PEOPLE NATIONWIDE ARE

STILL MOURNING THE DOZENS

OF PEOPLE KILLED, GUNNED

DOWN RIGHT HERE BEHIND ME

OUTSIDE THE MANDALAY BAY

RESORT. IN THE MIDST OF

CHAOS, FAITH AND PRAYER

HAVE TAKEN CENTER STAGE,

DURING THE AFTERMATH OF

THE WORST MASS SHOOTING IN

AMERICAN HISTORY.

THESE PEOPLE ARE

BLOODIED FROM HEAD TO TOE

AND THEY'RE PRAYING WITH

US.

Reporter: SO YOU

TURNED TO PRAYER RIGHT

AFTER?

INSTANTLY.

Reporter: KELLY CAN'T

HOLD BACK TEARS WHEN

TALKING ABOUT THE

TERRIFYING MOMENT WHEN A

64-YEAR-OLD GUNMAN FIRED A

BARAGE OF BULLETS INTO A

CROWD OF 22,000, ATTENDING

A COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL.

AS WE WERE RUNNING, HE

HAD A CLEAR VIEW OF FIRE,

AND HE WAS LAYING DOWN

FIRE ON US.

Reporter: IN AN ACT

OF HEROISM, AN OFF-DUTY

DEPUTY POLICE CHIEF STAYED

ON SCENE AND HELPED RUSH

THREE VICTIMS TO THE

HOSPITAL.

THEY WERE ALL CRYING

AND SAYING, WE'RE GOING TO

DIE.

AND I STILL REMEMBER

TELLING THEM, NOT TONIGHT.

TONIGHT IS NOT YOUR NIGHT.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE OKAY.

Reporter: IT TURNS

OUT THEY SURVIVED.

THANKS TO THE DEPUTY

CHIEF, WHO USED HIS POLICE

TRAINING SKILLS TO STOP

THE BLEEDING.

I WAS READY.

I SAW HIS BELT, TOOK IT

OFF, AND GOT A TOURNIQUET

ON THIS GUY.

HE WAS REALLY BAD.

HE HAD LOST PROBABLY 25%

OF HIS BLOOD VOLUME.

Reporter: HUNDREDS

LINED UP OUTSIDE UNITED

BLOOD SERVICES, AND IN

JUST ONE DAY DONATED

600 PINTS.

IT HAS REALLY BEEN

INCREDIBLE.

I'M NOT SURPRISED BY THE

OUTPOURING OF DONORS.

I THINK WHEN ALL OF THE

INVESTIGATIONS ARE OVER,

THAT WE CAN ALL LEARN

SOMETHING THAT WE CAN TAKE

FORWARD IN A POSITIVE WAY.

Reporter: DO YOU

OFFER PRAYERS TO THE

VICTIMS?

MY PRAYERS, MY

CONDOLENCES.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP COMES TO THE DESERT

IN A FEW HOURS TO OFFER

HIS PRAYERS AND SUPPORT,

BUT ALSO TO SHOW THE

PEOPLE OF THIS CITY AND

NATIONWIDE THAT IN TIMES

OF HORROR AND TRAGEDY,

AMERICA COMES TOGETHER AS

ONE.

BEN KENNEDY, CBN NEWS, LAS

VEGAS.

John: THANKS, BEN.

CBN NEWS WILL HAVE MORE

COVERAGE OF THE TRAGEDY IN

LAS VEGAS ON TODAY'S

"FAITH NATION" WITH DAVID

BROWD BROWDAVIDBRODY AND JENNA BROWDER.

PAULA WHITE WILL DISCUSS

WHAT SHE DOES TO ENCOURAGE

THE PRESIDENT IN THE FACE

OF A TRAGEDY.

AND MIKE HUCKABEE WILL

PREVIEW HIS NEW FAITH

BASED TALK SHOW.

> WELL, THE GOVERNOR OF

PUERTO RICO SAYS THE DEATH

TOLL FROM HURRICANE MARIA

HAS RISEN FROM 16 TO 34.

THE NEWS COMES AFTER

PRESIDENT TRUMP VISITED

THE ISLAND AND

CONGRATULATED ITS LEADERS

ON THE RELATIVELY LOW

NUMBER OF FALTS.

FATALITIES.

President Trump:

EVERY DEATH IS A HORROR.

BUT IF YOU LOOK AT A REAL

CATASTROPHE LIKE KATRINA,

WHAT IS YOUR DEATH COUNT?

16 PEOPLE VERSUS IN THE

THOUSANDS.

YOU CAN BE VERY PROUD.

John: THE PRESIDENT

SPENT ABOUT FOUR HOURS ON

THE ISLAND, MEETING WITH

GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND

DELIVERING SUPPLIES.

HURRICANE MARIA DID ABOUT

$90 BILLION WORTH OF

DAMAGE.

AND PEOPLE STILL LACK FOOD

AND WATER.

THE WHITE HOUSE PLANS TO

SEEK $29 BILLION MORE IN

DISASTER RELIEF FROM

CONGRESS TODAY.

HURRICANE MARIA HIT PUERTO

RICO AT A TIME WHEN IT WAS

ALREADY SUFFERING FROM A

DEBT CRISIS.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: YOU ASK

YOURSELF, HOW MUCH CAN

AMERICA AFFORD?

$90 BILLION FOR PUERTO

RICO -- THERE IS NO WAY

THAT THE UNITED STATES CAN

ASSUME ALL OF THAT BURDEN.

BUT IT IS STILL GOING TO

BE ENORMOUS.

AND THE COSTS OF THE

HURRICANE -- OR AT LEAST

THE RAINFALL THAT HIT

TEXAS, IT WAS SO

OVERWHELMING.

THAT IS GOING TO COST

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS MORE.

WHATEVER HAPPENS IN

FLORIDA IS GOING TO COST

BILLIONS MORE.

AND I DON'T KNOW IF I

INSURANCE COMPANIES CAN

TAKE IT.

APPARENTLY THEY HAVE

RESERVES SUFFICIENT TO

TAKE CARE OF THIS.

BUT IT'S A BODY BLOW TO

AMERICA.

WE JUST HIT ONE AFTER THE

OTHER.

AND PEOPLE ARE BEGINNING

TO SAY, WHAT IS IT THAT IS

HAPPENING?

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO BRING

FORTH THESE TERRIBLE

TRAGEDIES, ONE AFTER THE

OTHER?

I DON'T KNOW OF A NATION

THAT HAS HAD AS MANY BODY

BLOWS AS AMERICA HAS HAD

IN SUCH A SHORT PERIOD OF

TIME.

THESE ARE MAJOR PROBLEMS.

IF THERE WAS EVER A TIME

WE NEED PRAYER, REMEMBER

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS: IF MY

PEOPLE, WHICH ARE CALLED

BY MY NAME, WILL HUMBLE

THEMSELVES AND PRAY AND

SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN

FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS,

THEN I'LL HEAR FROM HEAVEN

AND FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND

HEAL THEIR LAND.

WE'VE GOT TO HAVE AN

INTERVENTION OF GOD HERE

IN THIS NATION.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

> WELL, YOU PROBABLY

WERE READING THE HEADLINES

AND IT WAS SOMETHING

CALLED EQUIFAX THAT GOT

HACKED.

THE LATEST HEADLINES TODAY

IS THAT ONE OF THE MAJOR

REPOSITORIES OF NAMES HAS

THREE BILLION NAMES THAT

WERE HACKED AND THAT'S

YAHOO.

THREE BILLION NAMES THAT

WERE HACKED, AND TARGET

STORES WAS HACKED, AND

CHASE BANK HAS BEEN

HACKED, AND MORE AND MORE

AND MORE.

WE ARE SUBJECT TO ON-GOING

ATTACK FROM HACKERS.

WELL, REGENT UNIVERSITY IS

DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

AND HERE IS JOHN WITH THAT

STORY.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

CYBER ATTACKS ARE ALWAYS

IN THE HEADLINES.

ONE RECENT EXAMPLE

INVOLVES EQUIFAX.

A HUGE BREACH OF PERSONAL

INFORMATION, OF AROUND

145 MILLION AMERICANS.

NOW REGENT UNIVERSITY HAS

ENTERED THE BATTLE AGAINST

HACKERS.

AS MARK MARTIN SHOWS US,

THIS WEEK THE SCHOOL

UNVEILED ITS CYBER RANGE.

Reporter: CBN AND

REGENT UNIVERSITY FOUNDER

DR. PAT ROBERTSON CUT THE

RIBBON TO REVEAL THE NEW

REGENT CYBER RANGE.

THEY PARTNERED WITH CYBER

BIT TO CREATE THIS

HIGH-TECH LABORATORY.

THEY SAY IT PUTS REGENT

UNIVERSITY ON THE

CUTTING-EDGE OF CYBER

SECURITY TRAINING FOR

STUDENTS, BUT ALSO FOR

BUSINESSES, GOVERNMENTS,

AND MILITARY GROUPS.

FOUR TIMES THE AVERAGE

SIZE, THE MULTI-MILLION

CYBER RANGE ALLOWS USERS

TO DELVE INTO ATTACK AND

DEFENSE AND MULTIPLE

SCENARIO TRAINING.

Pat: IF THERE IS AN

ATTACK TO TAKES PLACE

AGAINST A CORPORATION, IF

THEIR EXECUTIVES HAVE BEEN

TRAINED ON THIS SYSTEM,

THEY'LL BE ABLE TO

IDENTIFY IMMEDIATELY WHAT

IS HAPPENING AND TO TAKE

CORRECTIVE ACTION.

THAT'S WHAT WE WILL TEACH

PEOPLE.

John: THE CYBER RANGE

IS ONE OF A FIRST OF ITS

KIND.

DR. DAVID HENRY GAVE CBN

NEWS A TOUR.

SO FROM THIS STATION,

ATTACK MODULES CAN BE

GENERATED BELIEVERS AND

GENERATED, AND THE TRAINER

CAN TAKE CONTROL OVER THE

STATION IF HE OR SHE WANTS

TO.

John: ROBERTSON

BELIEVES THE CYBER RANGE

HAS SPIRITUAL

IMPLICATIONS.

Pat: HERE IS A

COMPANY THAT IS GOING TO

TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO RUN

THE MOST SOPHISTICATED

CYBER RANGE IN THE WORLD.

I THINK THAT IS A MAJOR

THING IN TERMS OF

ESTABLISHING GOD'S PEOPLE

AS POTENTIALATORS.

John: CYBER SECURITY

IS ONE OF THE FASTEST

GROWING CAREER FIELDS.

DEMAND IS EXPECTED TO RISE

TO SIX MILLION JOBS IN

2020.

IN VIRGINIA BEACH, MARK

MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

John: LEADING THE WAY

IN CYBER SECURITY.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: IT REALLY WAS AN

EXCITING EVENT.

IT WAS BUILT BY AN ISRAELI

COMPANY, CYBER BIT, AND

THEY BROUGHT IT IN.

THE PRESIDENT TOLD ME, I

THINK I CAN GET IT IN AT

THE END OF SUMMER.

AND I SAID, CAN YOU DO IT

FOR US SO WE CAN HAVE THAT

RIBBON CUTTING?

AND THEY SAID, WE'LL TRY.

AND THEY BROUGHT IT IN ON

TIME AND UNDER BUDGET.

THEY'RE GREAT PEOPLE TO

WORK WITH.

THIS IS INCREDIBLE.

THERE IS NO UNIVERSITY IN

THE NATION THAT HAS

ANYTHING NEAR THIS

SOPHISTICATION OR THIS

SIZE.

IT DOES NOT EXIST IN

AMERICA.

WE'RE THE FIRST IN THE

NATION TO BRING FORTH THIS

CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY.

Wendy: THAT'S

AMAZING, AND THE ISRAELIS

KNOW THEIR STUFF WHEN IT

COMES TO SECURITY.

Pat: THEY DO.

AND THE HEAD OF THE

COMPANY WAS HERE

YESTERDAY, AS WAS THE

GENERAL, WHO HAD BEEN IN

CHARGE OF CYBER SECURITY

FOR THE ISRAELI I.D.F.

REGENT IS GOING TO OFFER A

B.S. IN CYBER SECURITY,

AND A B.S. IN CYBER

DIGITAL FORENSICS, AND

OTHER COMPUTER SCIENCE

DEGREES.

AND WE'RE EQUIPPING THE

NEXT GENERATION OF CYBER

SECURITY PROFESSIONALS.

AND WE WILL BE HAVING

CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS, I

MIGHT ADD, FOR PEOPLE WHO

JUST WANT TO BE KNOWN AS

CYBER SECURITY

SPECIALISTS.

BUT THIS DEVICE -- A

CORPORATION CAN BRING FOUR

OR FIVE OF THEIR KEY

EXECUTIVES, SIT THEM AT

THESE TABLES, AND

EXPERIENCE FIRSTHAND, REAL

WORLD, BREAK-IN CYBER

ATTACKS ON THEIR KEY

EMPLOYEES, ON THEIR

COSTUMERS, ON THEIR

ACCOUNTS, WHATEVER THEY

ARE, AND THEN THEY'LL

LEARN HOW TO DEAL WITH IT

AND FIGHT IT.

IT IS AMAZING.

Wendy: IT IS

EXCITING.

IT IS GROUNDBREAKING,

REALLY.

AND IT IS NEEDED.

Pat: AND THIS IS THE

ONLY ONE IN AMERICA, THE

ONLY UNIVERSITY THAT WILL

HAVE FULL-TIME USE OF

ANYTHING THIS

SOPHISTICATED.

WE WERE THRILLED,

YESTERDAY, TO SEE IT

UNVEILED.

IT IS A BIG DEAL.

Wendy: WELL, THE

FUTURE OF WARFARE IS

PROBABLY, UNFORTUNATELY,

GOING TO BE CYBER, AND

HOPEFULLY NOT NUCLEAR.

BUT THAT'S WHERE WE'RE

HEADED.

Pat: THINK ABOUT

EQUIFAX, AND YAHOO, THREE

BILLION ACCOUNTS WERE

HACKED.

ALL OF THE DATA THAT IS

DOWN THERE, ALL OF THE

SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS,

ALL OF THE EMPLOYMENT

DATA, IT IS ALL OUT THERE

IN THE GREAT VOID, UP IN

THE CLOUD.

IT'S OUT THERE.

AND PEOPLE DON'T WANT THAT

TO HAPPEN.

AND HERE WE'VE GOT A

DEVICE THAT WILL TRAIN

PEOPLE HOW TO FIGHT THAT

AND FIGHT IT SUCCESSFULLY.

IT WAS A GREAT MOMENT FOR

US ALL.

Wendy: EXCITING.

I CAN SEE THAT YOU'RE

BEAMING.

THIS IS A BIG DEAL.

Pat: IT WAS A BIG

DEAL.

WE HAD THE MAYOR OF THE

CITY, A FORMER GOVERNOR

THERE, WE HAD VARIOUS --

MANY MEMBERS OF THE

GENERAL ASSEMBLY THERE.

IT WAS AN EXCITING THING

FOR VIRGINIA BECAUSE THIS

IS CUTTING-EDGE

TECHNOLOGY, AND WE'RE

HOPING TO HAVE A TECH

CENTER, FOR REGENT TO

BECOME A CENTER FOR

TECHNICAL LEARNING.

ISN'T THAT GREAT?

Wendy: I LOVE IT.

Pat: AND THEY USED TO

DISMISS YOU, YOU'RE JUST

ONE OF THOSE LITTLE BIBLE

SCHOOLS OFF IN THE CORNER.

Wendy: NOT ANYMORE.

> COMING UP, HE WAS A

6-YEAR-OLD STREET BOY IN

KENYA WHO ROSE FROM THE

SLUMS TO BECOME A

MILLIONAIRE.

HEAR WHY CHARLES MULLY

SOLD EVERYTHING TO RETURN

TO THE STREETS AND BECOME

A FATHER TO THOUSANDS OF

ORPHANS.

> PLUS, WE HAVE YOUR

E-MAIL.

DONALD SAYS, "HOW DO WE

PRAY AGAINST EVIL, LIKE

THAT OF THE NORTH KOREAN

DICTATOR?"

YOUR QUESTIONS AND HONEST

ANSWERS STRAIGHT AHEAD.

Pat: WELL, DO YOU

WANT -- DID YOU SEE THAT

MOVIE THAT WON SO MANY

AWARDS CALLED "SLUM DOG?"

Wendy: THAT WAS

AWESOME.

Pat: WELL, CHARLES

MULLY HAS A RAGS-TO-RICHES

STORY, SORT OF THE SAME

THING.

AT THE HEIGHT OF HIS

SUCCESS, HE SOLD IT ALL SO

HE COULD BECOME A FATHER

TO CHILDREN WHO LIVE ON

THE STREETS.

HIS LIFE IS THE FOCUS OF A

FILM IN THEATERS TONIGHT

AND TOMORROW.

EFREM GRAHAM BRINGS US

THIS LOOK AT "MULLY."

Efrem: LOOK FOR THE

BIGGEST AND BRIGHTEST

SMILE IN THESE FAMILY

PHOTOS, AND YOU'LL FIND

CHARLES MULLY.

HIS CHILDREN, WHO WERE

ONCE ORPHANS, CALLED HIM

DADDY MULLY.

Efrem: YOU, YOURSELF,

ABANDONED AS A CHILD?

YES, CORRECT, AS A

YOUNG CHILD.

I WOKE UP ONE DAY TO FIND

THAT I WAS ALONE AT THE

AGE OF FIVE, SIX YEARS,

AND THAT WAS MY LIFE.

NO FOOD.

NOTHING.

NO ACCOMODATIONS.

AND THEN I BECAME A STREET

PERSON AND A BEGGER.

I REMEMBER ONE DAY I WOKE

UP, AND EVERYBODY HAD

GONE.

Efrem: HIS AMAZING

CLIMB FROM KENYA'S SLUMS

IS THE FOCUS OF THIS

FEATURE FILM, "MULLY."

Efrem: AND YOU GO

FROM BEING A BEGGER TO A

MILLIONAIRE.

[LAUGHTER]

SOMETIMES IT IS SO HARD

FOR ME TO MEASURE ON THAT

LEVEL.

BUT I CAN ACKNOWLEDGE AND

SAY, YES, THE LORD REALLY

LIFTED ME SO HIGH THROUGH

THE SMALL BUSINESS THAT I

STARTED.

Efrem: SMALL

BUSINESS.

THE SMALL BUSINESS THAT

I STARTED.

Efrem: WHERE DO YOU

THINK THAT DRIVE FOR YOU

CAME FROM, THAT

ENTREPRENEURIAL DRIVE, TO

WANT BUSINESSES FOR

YOURSELF, AND TO THINK, I

CAN DO MORE WITH THIS, I

CAN TAKE WHAT LITTLE IS IN

MY HANDS AND DO MORE --

WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?

WHEN I LOOK AT IT AND I

LOOK BACK, I SEE GOD'S

GRACE AND PLAN, AND A GOOD

PLAN.

HE SAID, I HAVE A GOOD

PLAN FOR YOU.

AND THEN WHEN YOU LOOK AT

IT, IT IS LIKE GOD HAD A

GOOD PLAN.

WHY?

HE WAS PLANNING FOR ME TO

BECOME AN INSTRUMENT FOR

THE FUTURE.

WHEN GOD WANTS TO MAKE

HIMSELF VIEWED, THERE IS

NO WAY YOU CAN ESCAPE,

EVEN WHEN YOU TRY TO RUN

AWAY.

Efrem: HAPPILY

MARRIED WITH EIGHT

CHILDREN, MULLY FELT GOD

CALLING THEM TO SELL

EVERYTHING.

THAT CALL CAME IN 1986,

AFTER A FACE TO FACE

ENCOUNTER WITH CHILDREN

BEGGING ON THE STREET.

I WAS REALLY COMMENDED

BY THESE VOICES.

I SAW THE FACES AND I

COULD NOT WORK ANYMORE.

I CRIED WHY, TO THINK THAT

GOD WANTED TO SEND ME BACK

AGAIN.

I WILL NEVER, EVER WORK

FOR MONEY AGAIN.

GOD WAS SPEAKING TO ME

THIS WAY: YOU WERE LIKE

THEM.

I SAW MY FACE IN THEIR

FACES.

BECAUSE I WAS TRYING TO

HIDE MYSELF.

AND DON'T REMEMBER SHARING

TESTIMONY ABOUT MY PAST.

I WANTED PEOPLE TO SEE ME

AS A GREAT MAN, WITH MONEY

AND EVERYTHING.

DAD SAID THAT HE NEEDED

TO SELL EVERYTHING AND

POUR IT INTO THE SOCIETY

FOR THE CHILDREN WHO WERE

ABANDONED.

HOW DO YOU LET GO OF

WHAT YOU HOLD DEARLY, AND

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHEN TO

SHARE YOUR LOVE.

Efrem: HE STARTED

"MULLY'S CHILDREN'S

FAMILY," NOW THE LARGEST

CHILDREN'S ORGANIZATION IN

AFRICA.

Efrem: GROWING THAT

FAMILY TO THE SIZE IT IS

TODAY HASN'T BEEN AN EASY

PROCESS?

IT HAS NEVER BEEN EASY.

TOGETHER WITH MY WIFE --

ESPECIALLY THE REJECTION

FROM OUR FRIENDS, THE

CHURCHES, WHO NEVER WANTED

TO HEAR ABOUT ANYTHING.

THEY THOUGHT I WAS CRAZY.

WE HAD THREE CHILDREN,

FOUR CHILDREN, AND THE

NUMBER KEPT ON GROWING.

THIS IS YOUR FAMILY

NOW.

THESE ARE ALL OF YOUR

BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

Efrem: MORE THAN

13,000 OF DADDY MULLY'S

CHILDREN HAVE GONE ON TO

BECOME DOCTORS, ENGINEERS,

TEACHERS, AND LAWYERS.

I SEE THE WORLD, KENYA,

AND THE CONTINENT OF

AFRICA K TO BE TRANSFORMED

THROUGH THEM AND THROUGH

CHRIST.

Efrem: TRANSFORMATION

THAT BEGAN WITH OBEDIENCE

AND LED TO BECOMING A

FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WOW, WHAT A

STORY.

IT TAKES A LOT, WHEN

YOU'RE A WEALTHY MAN, AS

HE WAS, VERY SUCCESSFUL,

AND GOD SAYS, SELL WHAT

YOU'VE GOT AND GIVE TO THE

POOR AND COME FOLLOW ME.

AND, WOW!

Wendy: YOU DID THAT

WHEN YOU WERE JUST GETTING

STARTED.

THE LORD SAID THE SAME

THING TO YOU, RIGHT?

Pat: WELL, I WASN'T A

SUCCESSFUL RICH

BUSINESSMAN.

I WAS A STRUGGLING

STUDENT.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, THE

SAME THING: THE LORD SAID,

I WANT YOU TO SELL WHAT

YOU HAVE AND GIVE TO THE

POOR AND FOLLOW ME.

Wendy: BUT YOU WERE

MARRIED.

I READ YOUR BOOK AND YOUR

WIFE CAME HOME AND ALL OF

THE FURNITURE IS GONE.

Pat: WELL, SHE CALLED

AND SAID, WHY ARE YOU

TAKING CALLS IN BROOKLYN.

AND I SAID, WELL, I TOLD

YOU GOD WAS DEALING WITH

ME OUT OF LUKE 12: 33.

AND I SAID, DIDN'T YOU

READ IT?

AND SHE SAID, NO, I DON'T

READ THAT STUFF.

AND I SAID, THIS ONE YOU

SHOULD HAVE READ.

THAT'S THE ONE THAT SAYS

SELL WHAT YOU'VE GOT.

WE HAD SOME LITTLE EARLY

AMERICAN FURNITURE AND

STUFF.

AND I PUT AN AD IN THE

PAPER AND OLD IT OUT OF

OUR APARTMENT AND GAVE THE

MONEY TO THE PEOPLE

WORKING OUT ON THE STREETS

IN BROOKLYN.

THAT WAS A GREAT,

LIBERATING THING FOR ME.

BUT I DIDN'T HAVE THE KIND

OF MONEY THIS GUY HAD.

Wendy: GOD LOOKED AT

YOUR HEART.

AND LOOK WHAT GOD HAS

DONE.

Pat: IT WAS AN

IMPORTANT STEP IN GETTING

ME FREE.

I HAD TO GET LIBERATED IN

ORDER TO SERVE HIM.

AND HE HAD SOMETHING SO

MUCH BIGGER.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

WEV GOT SOME GREAT

QUESTIONS.

DONALD WRITES, "HOW DO WE

PRAY AGAINST EVIL LIKE

THAT OF THE NORTH KOREAN

KOREAN DICTATOR?

SHOULDN'T WE, AS

CHRISTIANS, BEING PRAYING

AGAINST THIS?"

Pat: YOU SAY, SATAN,

I BIND YOU AND THE FORCES

OF EVIL.

NOW, DO YOU THINK EVIL IS

BEHIND THAT SHOOTING?

DO YOU THINK EVIL IS

BEHIND KIM JONG-UN?

IS THAT EVIL?

YES, IT'S EVIL.

WELL, I BIND YOU, SATAN,

AND THE FORCES OF EVIL.

AND IN JESUS' NAME YOU DO

IT, AND GOD WILL HEAR THAT

PRAYER AND HE'LL ANSWER

IT.

THE BIBLE SAYS, BEFORE YOU

CAN SPOIL THE STRONG MAN,

YOU HAVE TO BIND HIM.

THEN YOU CAN RAID HIS

HOUSE.

BUT UNTIL YOU BIND HIM,

YOU CAN'T SPOIL HIS HOUSE.

Wendy: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "WHAT WAS GOD'S PLAN

FOR SALVATION FOR ALL OF

THE MILLIONS PEOPLE WHO

DID NOT KNOW GOD, AND

ESPECIALLY JESUS?

HOW DID HE DETERMINE THEIR

SALVATION?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

JESUS WENT INTO THE LOWER

RMPREGIONS AND HE PREACHED TO

THOSE WHO WERE CAPTIVE,

AWAITING.

SO IN A SENSE, THE TIME

BETWEEN HIS DESCENT FROM

THE CROSS AND HIS

RESURRECTION, HE

APPARENTLY PREACHED TO THE

MULTITUDES OF PEOPLE WHO

WERE WAITING FOR THE FINAL

JUDGMENT.

I THINK THAT'S THE WAY IT

IS.

I DON'T WANT TO

OVERELABORATE BECAUSE IT

IS A LITTLE HARD TO

UNDERSTAND.

BUT THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

Wendy: THIS ONE SAYS,

"WHEN I PRAYER OR SPEND

QUIET TIME WITH THE LORD,

EVEN WHEN I'M READING,

SOMETIMES I PREFER TO HAVE

VERY LOW LIGHTS.

OTHER TIMES I LITERALLY GO

INTO THE CLOSET READING

THE WORD, USING A FLASH

FLIGHT OR APP ON MY PHONE.

IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG

WITH ME OR WITH MY

PREFERENCE IN DOING THIS?"

Pat: NO.

I THINK YOU WANT TO

ISOLATE YOURSELF.

THE MORE LIGHT WE HAVE,

WHEN WE'RE ENGAGED, OUR

I'EYES ARE SEEING ALL KINDS

OF STUFF.

AND WE'RE CONCENTRATING ON

THE TELEVISION PROGRAM OR

ON THE TELEPHONE OR SOME

VISIT WE'VE HAD OR

SOMETHING ELSE.

SO WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS --

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG

WITH IT.

YOU'RE ISOLATING YOURSELF

TO BE WITH THE LORD.

I THINK THAT'S VERY

BEAUTIFUL.

Wendy: I DO THE SAME

THING.

BECAUSE IT CREATES A MORE

INTIMATE ATMOSPHERE.

NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU.

ALL RIGHT, THANKS, PAT.

THOSE WERE GREAT.

GREAT QUESTIONS AND GREAT

ANSWERS.

> UP NEXT, A SOLDIER

RETURNS FROM DEPLOYMENT A

VERY DIFFERENT MAN.

IT WAS IN A REALLY,

REALLY DARK PLACE, A

REALLY BAD PLACE.

I FELT LIKE I WAS

WALKING ON EGG SHELLS ALL

OF THE TIME.

HE WAS JUST SO UNHAPPY.

Wendy: SEE WHAT SAVES

THIS COUPLE'S MARRIAGE,

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: HEIDI HERBET

WAS DONE.

SHE WAS DONE WALKING ON

EGGS IN HER OWN HOUSE.

SHEN WAS DONE WITH HER

MARRIAGE.

SO SHE GAVE HER HUSBAND AN

ULTIMATUM, AND THAT OPENED

THE DOOR FOR A MIRACLE.

Reporter: WHEN BEN

AND HEIDI MARRIED IN 1994

AND HAD A DAUGHTER, THEY

ACCEPTED THAT HIS SERVICE

AS A NAVY SEAL WOULD TAKE

HIM AWAY FOR MONTHS AT A

TIME.

BOTH FELT THE STRESS ON

THEIR RELATIONSHIP, BUT

BEN ALWAYS CAME HOME THE

SAME MAN HEIDI HAD FALLEN

IN LOVE WITH.

BEN USED TO ALWAYS BE

THIS KIND OF HAPPY, GO

LUCKY SOCIAL GUY.

HE DIDN'T GET ANGRY EASY.

WE WERE HAPPY.

WE LOVED EACH OTHER.

Reporter: BUT WHEN

BEN CAME HOME FROM

AFGHANISTAN IN 2009,

SOMETHING THAT CHANGED.

WHILE ON PATROL, BEN'S

TEAM WAS AMBUSHED BY

INSURGENTS.

DURING THE 30-MINUTE

FIREFIGHT, SERGEANT

MICHAEL ROY WAS HIT IN THE

HEAD BY A BULLET AND

KILLED.

BEN, THE TEAM'S MEDIC,

DRAGGED THE MAN'S BODY

BEHIND THE HUMVEE,

COVERING HIM UNTIL THE

FIGHTING STOPPED.

THERE WAS NOTHING I

COULD DO FOR HIM.

AND THAT WAS A HARD PILL

TO SWALLOW.

NOT AS MUCH, BUT THERE IS

STILL GUILT THERE.

I'VE BEEN ON MULTIPLE

DEPLOYMENTS, AND I'VE SEEN

PEOPLE PASS, BUT THERE WAS

A BOND BECAUSE WE WERE

SUCH A SMALL TEAM, THAT

THAT ONE HURT.

THAT ONE REALLY HURT.

Reporter: THIS TIME

HE CAME HOME A VERY

DIFFERENT MAN.

I FELT LIKE I WAS

WALKING ON EGG SHELLS ALL

THE TIME.

I COULD ASK HIM A QUESTION

THAT WASN'T ANYTHING THAT

WOULD HAVE UPSET THE OLD

BEN.

HE WOULD JUST GET ANGRY

AND HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY

AND JUST SNAP.

HE WAS JUST SO UNHAPPY.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

BEN WAS QUIETLY STRUGGLING

WITH DEPRESSION.

MY PATIENCE, MY ANGER,

WAS QUICK.

FOR ME, THE SCARIEST

PORTION WAS THE DEPRESSION

BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW HOW

LOW I REALLY WAS.

Reporter: THE NEXT

FEW MONTHS WERE FILLED

WITH HIGHS AND LOWS, AS

HEIDI TRIED TO BE

UNDERSTANDING.

BUT AFTER A YEAR, THE

OUTBURSTS AND ARGUING ONLY

GOT WORSE.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHO HE

WAS.

I DIDN'T LOVE HIM ANYMORE.

AND I WAS, LIKE, I'M DONE.

WE'VE BEEN MARRIED FOR 14

YEARS, BUT I'M NOT DOING

THIS ANYMORE.

SO YOU'VE GOT TWO OPTIONS:

TOMORROW, WHEN YOU GO BACK

TO WORK, YOU EITHER GET

HELP FOR YOURSELF AND HELP

FOR YOU AND I, OR IT IS

OVER.

BECAUSE WE'D BEEN IN

ARGUMENTS AND WE'D BEEN IN

FIGHTS, AND WE'VE HAD OUR

ROUGH TIMES, BUT NEVER TO

THE POINT THAT IT WAS, YOU

KNOW, I'M DONE.

AND I WAS IN A REALLY,

REALLY DARK PLACE.

A REALLY BAD PLACE.

Reporter: THEY MADE A

LOT OF PROGRESS OVER THE

NEXT FEW YEARS, BUT THEIR

RELATIONSHIP WAS STILL

SUFFERING.

THEN IN 2013, THEY

ATTENDED A SMA "SAMARITAN'S

PURSE" CONFERENCE, WHERE

THEY REALIZED WHAT THEY

HAD BEEN MISSING WAS A

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT

HOW THEY CAME TO JESUS.

IT IS NOT THAT I DIDN'T

BELIEVE IN CHRIST AND I

DIDN'T BELIEVE THAT HE IS

OUR SAVIOR, YOU KNOW, BUT

THE WAY THEY WERE TALKING

ABOUT IT WAS JUST, WOW.

I COULDN'T GET ENOUGH.

I WAS HUNGRY.

I JUST COULDN'T GET ENOUGH

OF IT.

I JUST KNEW I WANTED

OUR LIFE TO BE DIFFERENT.

I WANTED TO BE DIFFERENT.

IT WAS JESUS WHO SAID, IT

DOESN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE

WHAT YOU DID IN THIS

LIFETIME, THAT IT IS ALL

WASHED AWAY.

YOU ARE MY CHILD.

I WANTED THAT.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

BEGAN TO ATTEND CHURCH

REGULARLY IN THE NEXT

YEAR.

AT THE OPERATION "HE'LLHEAL OUR

PATRIOTS" REUNION, THEY

BOTH ACCEPTED CHRIST.

TO KNOW WE COULD BE

FORGIVEN AND WE GAVE OUR

LIVES TO CHRIST -- I NEED

THAT RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE

I AM A SINNER.

WHEN I FINALLY SAID,

YES, GOD.

I WANT THAT.

IT WAS LIKE THIS WEIGHT

JUST CAME OFF.

Reporter: THEY

RECEIVED MENTORING BY

OTHER CHRISTIAN COUPLES

AND STARTED PRAYING AND

STUDYING THE BIBLE.

THEY LEARNED TO PUT CHRIST

AT THE CENTER OF THEIR

HEART AND THEIR MARRIAGE.

JESUS MAKES YOU WANT TO

BE A BETTER PERSON.

Reporter: BEN AND

HEIDI SAY THEIR LOVE FOR

EACH OTHER IS STRONGER

THAN EVER, AND IT'S ALL

BECAUSE THEY LEARNED TO

LOVE EACH OTHER AS CHRIST

LOVES THEM.

JESUS GAVE MY MARRIAGE

HOPE THAT NO MATTER WHAT

TRIAL WE WENT THROUGH,

THAT IF WE LOOK TO OUR

SAVIOR, IT IS GOING TO BE

FINE.

BUT HE ALSO GAVE US A

DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE ON

HOW WE NEED TO SEE EACH

OTHER.

WE DO A DEVOTION, AND

ONE OF THE THINGS IS THAT

I'M HIS SON, AND I NEED TO

REMEMBER THAT SHE IS HIS

DAUGHTER.

I NEED TO TREAT HER AS

SUCH.

IT IS SO COOL BECAUSE

YOU DON'T STOP GROWING.

YOU DON'T STOP LEARNING.

AND SO IT'S LIKE WE'RE ON

THIS LITTLE VENTURE

TOGETHER NOW, AND LOOKING

WHERE IS GOD GOING TO TAKE

US NEXT?

Wendy: WITH GOD, THE

ADVENTURE NEVER ENDS.

I LOVE THIS STORY SO MUCH.

IT REMINDS ME OF THE

SCRIPTURE IN THE BIBLE.

A THREE-FOLD CORD IS NOT

EASILY BROKEN.

AS GREAT AS THEIR MARRIAGE

WAS IN THE BEGINNING FOR

BEN AND HEIDI, IT WASN'T

ENOUGH.

IT WASN'T ENOUGH WHEN

THINGS GOT TOUGH, WHEN HE

GOT BACK FROM AFGHANISTAN

AND WAS DEPRESSED, IT

WASN'T ENOUGH TO HOLD

THEIR MARRIAGE TOGETHER

BECAUSE THAT THIRD CORD

WAS MISSING, AND THAT

THIRD CORD IS JESUS

CHRIST.

JESUS IS THE ANSWER.

IF YOU'RE MARRIAGE IS

HANGING BY A THREAD TODAY,

THERE IS HOPE.

THERE IS SO MUCH HOPE.

THERE IS A MIRACLE FOR

YOU.

FIRST IT COMES WITH

INVITING JESUS CHRIST INTO

YOUR HEART.

RECEIVING JESUS AS LORD

AND SAVIOR.

AND THEN COMMITTING YOUR

MARRIAGE TO HIM.

AND EVERYTHING JUST FLOWS

FROM THAT.

BUT THAT'S THE BEGINNING.

THAT'S THE START, AND

THAT'S WHAT BEN AND HEIDI

DID.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE

INFORMATION ON HOW YOU CAN

HELP YOUR LOVE LIFE AND

YOUR MARRIAGE, WE'VE GOT A

FREE BOOKLET FOR YOU.

JUST CALL THE NUMBER ON

YOUR SCREEN:

1-800-700-7000.

AND WE WILL SEND THIS OUT

TO YOU RIGHT AWAY.

IF YOU'RE A NEW BELIEVER,

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS,

TOO.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

YOU NEED TO GET IN A

BIBLE-BASED CHURCH.

KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A

CHRISTIAN, KNOW WHAT IT

MEANS TO BE A BELIEVER.

THAT'S THE BEGINNING, AND

EVERYTHING ELSE FLOWS FROM

THERE.

I LOVE WHAT THEY SAID AT

THE END: THEIR ADVENTURE

WAS JUST BEGINNING.

IF YOU WANT THAT, GIVE US

A CALL: 1-800-700-7000.

> STILL AHEAD, SHE WAS A

SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL AND

WENT ON A MISSIONS TRIP

THAT CHANGED HER WORLD.

STAY TUNED TO MEET HER,

LATER ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

HOUSE REPUBLICANS HAVE

PUSHED FORWARD A BILL THAT

WOULD BAN ABORTIONS AFTER

20 WEEKS OF PREGNANCY.

THE BILL PASSED THE HOUSE

BY NEARLY 50 VOTES.

THE PAIN CAPABLE UNBORN

CHILD PROTECTION ACT IS A

VICTORY FOR PRO-LIFE

ADVOCATES.

IT RECOGNIZES THAT A FETUS

CAN FEEL PAIN BY THE TIME

IT HAS REACHED 20 WEEKS.

THE MEASURE MAKES

EXCEPTIONS FOR RAPE,

INCEST, AND THE HEALTH OF

THE MOTHER.

THE PRESIDENT TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION SUPPORTS

THE BILL, BUT THE SENATE

HAS YET TO SCHEDULE A VOTE

ON IT.

> "MARCH FOR LIFE"

LEADERS ANNOUNCED THE

THEME FOR THE 45th

ANNUAL "MARCH FOR LIFE,"

SCHEDULED FOR

JANUARY 9th.

JEANNIE MANCINI SAYS THE

THEME IS "LOVE SAVES

LIVES."

WITH THE EMPHASIZE OF

THE PREGNANCY CARE UNIT

AND HOW REALLY LOVE IS THE

D.N.A. OF THAT MOVEMENT,

AND HOW THEY'VE BEEN

SUPPORTING WOMEN IN NEED

AND WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN

FACING AN UNEXPECTED

PREGNANCY FOR YEARS AND

YEARS, GIVING THEM THE

RESOURCES AND SUPPORT THAT

THEY NEED.

"LOVE SAVES LIVES" IS

AN INCREDIBLE THEME FOR

THE "MARCH FOR LIFE."

THERE IS A VERY DIVERSE

GROUP OF PEOPLE, AGES, AND

BACKGROUNDS, WITH WOMEN

LOVING ON WOMEN.

AND IT HAS ACTUALLY SAVED

LIVES IN THAT MARCH AND IN

THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT.

Efrem: SHE CALLED THE

"MARCH FOR LIVE" THE

LARGEST HUMAN RIGHTS

DEMONSTRATION BECAUSE IT

IS OPPOSING ABORTION.

IT IS ESTIMATED NEARLY

59 MILLION UNBORN BABIES

HAVE BEEN ABORTED SINCE

THE.

SUPREME COURT

LEGALIZED ABORTION

NATIONWIDE IN 1973.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN ALWAYS

GET THE LATEST NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MUCH

MORE.

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: SANTOS IS A

HARD-WORKING, SINGLE

FATHER, BUT WHEN JOBS ARE

SCARCE, FOOD IS AS WELL.

THANKFULLY, HE AND HIS

THREE CHILDREN NO LONGER

HAVE TO GO HUNGRY, THANKS

TO "OPERATION BLESSING."

Reporter: SANTOS

BECAME A SINGLE PARENT OF

THREE AFTER HIS WIFE

PASSED AWAY FROM CANCER.

8-YEAR-OLD ANDREA IS THE

OLDEST.

ONE DAY MY DAD BOUGHT

TORTILLAS AND BREAD, BUT

ONLY THE KIDS ATE.

HE DIDN'T EAT.

Reporter: SANTOS HAD

SOLD EVERYTHING TO PAY FOR

HIS WIFE'S MEDICAL CARE.

NOW HE WAS FORCED TO MOVE

AROUND, LOOKING FOR A

PLACE TO LIVE AND TO WORK.

HE ALWAYS TAKES US WITH

HIM SO WE ARE SAFE.

WHEN SOMEONE WANTED TO

HIRE ME TO WORK IN THE

FIELDS, I SAID, I HAVE TO

TAKE MY CHILDREN WITH ME

BECAUSE I CANNOT LEAVE

THEM ALONE.

Reporter: SANTOS

FINALLY FOUND A PLACE TO

LIVE IN EXCHANGE FOR

CARING FOR A LAND OWNER'S

COW.

BUT HE NEEDED A MORE

STEADY INCOME FOR FOOD AND

MEDICINE.

AFTER "OPERATION BLESSING"

MET THE FAMILY, WE GAVE

THEM SOME EMERGENCY FOOD.

THEN WE BUILT THEM A

CHICKEN COUP AND GAVE THEM

200 CHICKENS TO RAISE AND

SELL.

THEY GAVE ME A CHICKEN

FARM.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

I HELP HIM TO FEED THE

CHICKENS AND GIVE THEM

WATER.

I NOW MAKE $100 TO $150

A MONTH FROM THE CHICKEN

FARM.

HE SELLS THE CHICKENS,

AND WE'RE NOT HUNGRY

ANYMORE.

WE NEIL S FEEL SO HAPPY, AND WE

ALSO GIVE THANKS TO GOD.

Wendy: I LOVE HER

LITTLE FACE.

> COMING UP, WE'RE GOING

TO MEET THE WOMAN WHO WAS

A SINGLE MOM TO 13

DAUGHTERS, AND NOW SHE IS

A MARRIED MOM TO 14 KIDS.

SHE TELLS HER REMARKABLE

STORY OF DARING TO HOPE,

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: HER HOUSE IS

NEVER IN ORDER, DINNER IS

OFTEN LATE, AND HER FAMILY

MAKES A RUCKUS IN THE

GROCERY STORE, AND HER

KIDS NEVER GET THROUGH ALL

OF THEIR HOMEWORK, SUCH IS

THE LIVE OF KATIE DAVIS

MAJORS.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: KATIE DAVIS

MAJORS ALWAYS DREAMED OF

HAVING A FEW KIDS AND A

HOUSE WITH A WHITE PICKET

FENCE.

BUT WHEN SHE MOVED TO

UGANDA YEARS AGO, SHE FELL

IN LOVE WITH AND ADOPTED

13 GIRLS.

AFTER ONE OF THE

BIOLOGICAL MOTHERS CAME UP

TO CLAIM HER, LIFE FOR

KATIE CHANGED.

SHE TELLS WHAT SHE

ENCOUNTERED IN THE LEAST

EXPECTED PLACES.

Wendy: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB"

KATIE DAVIS MAJORS.

THANK YOU.

IT IS GREAT TO BEYOU.

Wendy: I LIKE YOUR

SCARF.

THANKS.

Wendy: YOU WERE 18

WHEN YOU WENT ON THIS

MISSIONS TRIP TO UGANDA,

AND YOU WERE STILL IN HIGH

SCHOOL.

AND YOU SAID, I'M NOT

GOING TO COLLEGE.

THIS CHANGED YOUR LIFE.

WHAT HAPPENED?

IT DID.

I HAD BEEN THERE FOR THREE

WEEKS OVER MY CHRISTMAS

BREAK IN HIGH SCHOOL.

I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE

WARM, HOSPITABLE AND

GRACIOUS PEOPLE.

I WAS INVITED BACK BY A

UGANDAN PASTOR WHO RAN AN

ORPHANAGE.

AND HE ASKED ME TO COME

AND HELP HIM TEACH

KINDERGARTEN.

SO I CAME BACK AND DECIDED

TO FOREGO COLLEG FORGO COLLEGE FOR A

YEAR.

Wendy: WHEN YOU GOT

THERE, YOU DIDN'T JUST

VOLUNTEER.

YOU ADOPTED 13

DAUGHTERS -- WELL, 13

GIRLS THAT BECAME YOUR

DAUGHTERS.

YEAH.

Wendy: HOW DOES A

SINGLE, 18-YEAR-OLD GIRL

DO THAT?

IT WAS OVER A COURSE OF

YEARS.

FIRST I FOUNDED A

MINISTRY, WHICH WAS

BIRTHED OUT OF THE

OVERWHELMING NEED IN THE

VILLAGE, AND, ALSO, A LOT

OF THE CHILDREN LIVING IN

THE ORPHANAGE HAD PARENTS,

WHO PUT THEM IN THERE

BECAUSE OF A LACK OF

PROVISION.

I WAS SO BROKEN BY THAT,

THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TO

GIVE UP THEIR CHILDREN

JUST TO KNOW THEY WOULD

EAT OR GO TO SCHOOL.

AND SO THE PROGRAM SENDS

CHILDREN TO SCHOOL AND

HELPS PARENTS WITH THE

BASIC NEEDS OF THEIR

CHILDREN SO THEY CAN STAY

AND BE RAISED IN THEIR

HOME WHERE THEY ARE LOVED.

AND WE, OF COURSE, SHARED

THE GOSPEL WITH THEM AT

EVERY OPPORTUNITY.

THEY GO INTO THE HOMES AND

DO BIBLE STUDIES.

SO THAT WAS REALLY WHEN I

FIRST KNEW I WAS CALLED TO

STAY, AND THAT THAT WOULD

BE MY LIFE'S WORK.

Wendy: WHEN DID YOU

FIRST KNOW YOU WERE CALLED

TO BE A MOTHER TO THE

MULTITUDES?

I HAD THREE LITTLE

GIRLS COME AND STAY WITH

ME, AND ORIGINALLY IT WAS

TO BE A SHORT-TERM FOSTER

PLACEMENT WHILE WE LOOKED

FOR OTHER FAMILY THAT

MIGHT BE ABLE TO TAKE THEM

IN.

BECAUSE OF THE

CIRCUMSTANCES, WHEN THERE

WASN'T A GOOD PLACE FOR

THEM TO GO, I BEGAN THE

PROCESS TO FOSTER THEM

LONG-TERM.

AND GOD JUST MADE IT CLEAR

TO ME THAT ACTUALLY WE

WERE TO BE A FAMILY.

SO I BEGAN THE LONG

PAPERWORK PROCESS TO ADOPT

THEM.

Wendy: YOU HAD ONE

DAUGHTER NAMED JANE, YOU

HAD FROM A VERY EARLY AGE,

AND SEVERAL YEARS INTO

BEING HER MOM, HER MOTHER

CAME BACK TO CLAIM HER.

YES.

Wendy: I CAN'T EVEN

IMAGINE WHAT THAT WAS

LIKE.

I MEAN, IT WAS SO

DIFFICULT.

WE HAD SHORT-TERM FOSTER

CHILDREN THAT WE INTENDED

TO RESETTLE BACK FOR THEIR

FAMILIES.

BUT FOR JANE WE HAD LOOKED

AND DONE RADIO

ADVERTISEMENTS --

Wendy: SHE WAS

ABANDONED.

SHE WAS COMPLETELY

ABANDONED AND WE COULD NOT

FIND ANY FAMILY.

SHE WAS WITH US ALMOST

THREE YEARS, AND WE

INTENDED TO MAKE HER A

PERMANENT MEMBER OF THE

FAMILY.

IT WAS SHOCKING WHEN HER

MOTHER CAME AND SAID, I

WANT TO PARENT HER.

PART OF ME, OF COURSE,

REALLY WANTED THAT FOR

HER, AND PART OF ME WAS,

NO, THAT'S MY BABY.

Wendy: SHE ONLY KNEW

YOU AS MOM.

RIGHT.

I HAD GOTTEN HER WHEN SHE

WAS ONE.

SHE WAS VERY MUCH A BABY.

Wendy: HOW DID GOD

HELP YOU RELEASE HER BACK

TO HER MOM?

I WRESTLED.

IT WAS BIG FOR ME TO

QUESTION GOD.

OKAY, GOD, I'M PRAYING FOR

THIS THING, AND YOU'RE

GIVING ME THIS THING.

AND WHAT DO I DO WITH

THAT?

I THINK GOD REALLY SHOWED

ME THAT HE DOESN'T ALWAYS

GIVE US THE YES THAT WE'RE

PRAYING FOR.

BUT HE IS ALWAYS NEAR TO

US IN THAT STRUGGLE.

Wendy: DO YOU GET TO

SEE HER?

I DO.

AND SHE IS DOING WELL.

Wendy: AND YOU ALSO

WENT THROUGH THE DEATH OF

A CLOSE FRIEND NAMED

KATHRYN.

YES.

Wendy: HOW DID YOU

HANDLE THAT GRIEF?

JANE WAS KIND OF ON THE

BEGINNING OF A SEASON OF A

LOT OF GRIEF AND A LOT OF

HARDSHIP OF OUR FAMILY.

KATHRYN WAS A FRIEND WHO

CAME TO STAY WITH US

BECAUSE HE WAS VERY SICK.

AND OUR HOME IS NEAR THE

LOCAL HOSPITAL.

SO IT MADE SENSE FOR HER

TO STAY WITH US.

I REALLY PRAYED AND

BELIEVED THAT GOD WOULD

HEAL HER.

SO WHEN HE DIDN'T, IT WAS

VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME TO

GRAPPLE WITH, OKAY, MY

VERSION OF WHAT WOULD BE

GOOD AND WHAT WOULD BE

HAPPY, AND GOD'S VERSION

OF WHAT WAS ACTUALLY

HAPPENING.

I THINK HE JUST SHOWED ME

HE DOES GRIEVE WITH US FOR

THE HURT OF THE WORLD.

THIS IS NOT AS HE INTENDED

US.

I FELT HIS PEACE DURING

THAT TIME.

Wendy: I GUESS WE CAN

IDENTIFY WITH JESUS AS A

MAN OF SORROWS.

SO HERE YOU ARE A SINGLE

MOM OF 13 GIRLS.

AND THERE IS A GUY THAT

WANTS TO DATE YOU.

HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?

[LAUGHTER]

HE HAD BEEN LIVING IN

UGANDA FOR ABOUT SEVEN

YEARS NOW, AND HE HAD BEEN

THERE A COUPLE OF YEARS

DOING MEN'S MINISTRY, AND

HE DISCIPLES FATHERS AND

YOUNG MEN --

Wendy: YOU WEREN'T

INTERESTED AT FIRST?

NO.

IT WASN'T THAT I WASN'T

INTERESTED BUT I COULDN'T

WRAP MY MIND AROUND WHAT

THAT WOULD BE FOR ME.

I PUT THAT DREAM ASIDE,

THAT THIS IS PROBABLY NOT

SOMETHING GOD HAS IN MY

FUTURE.

Wendy: BUT YOU GUYS

GOT MARRIED?

WE DID.

I FINALLY AND EVENTUALLY

SAID YES, AND WE GOT

MARRIED ABOUT A YEAR AFTER

DATING.

Wendy: AND YOU HAVE A

CHILD OF YOUR OWN NOW?

YES.

THERE ARE 14 CHILDREN NOW.

Wendy: OKAY.

MORE KIDS ON THE WAY?

MORE CHILDREN TO BE

ADOPTED?

I DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW.

WE'LL SEE.

Wendy: THIS IS JUST A

FASCINATING, FASCINATING

STORY OF SOMEONE WHO

REALLY FOLLOWED YOUR

HEART.

YOU FOLLOWED YOUR DREAMS.

AND WHAT AN AMAZING STORY

THAT IS UNFOLDING.

AND YOU'RE STILL VERY,

VERY YOUNG, SO WE KNOW

THERE ARE MANY MORE

CHAPTERS AHEAD.

KATIE'S BOOK IS CALLED

"DARING TO HOPE."

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

PLUS WE HAVE A SOCIAL

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH

KATIE, AND TO WATCH THAT

GO TO

Facebook.com/700club.

KATIE, YOU ARE SUCH AN

INSPIRATION.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Wendy: MOTHER TERESA

TO UGANDA.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH THIS

POWER MINUTE FROM MARK 9:

37: "WHOEVER RECEIVES ONE

OF THESE LITTLE CHILDREN

IN MY NAME RECEIVES ME.

AND WHOEVER RECEIVES ME,

RECEIVES NOT ME BUT HIM,

WHO SENT ME."

AN APPROPRIATE VERSE FOR

THIS.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR

WATCHING.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

GOD BLESS YOU.
