> COMING UP, INSIDE A

CHURCH

WITHOUT WALLS.

I FOUND LOVE.

SEE HOW THEY ARE CHANGING

LIVES IN

THE COMMUNITY.

AND THE WOMAN WHO WAS ON

YOUTUBE..

I WAS THE HAPPIEST IN THE

WORLD..

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB".

*

Pat: THE WEEKEND IS OVER

AND ANOTHER

FOOTBALL GAME BECAUSE OF THE

NATIONAL

ANTHEM AND THE PRESIDENT HAS

GOT A

FIGHT ON HIS HANDS BECAUSE OF

IMMIGRATION.

ISN'T IT NICE TO BE PART OF

THE USA.

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS

HAPPENING TO

US..

WE ARE DOING AWAY WITH

COLUMBUS

BECAUSE HE WASN'T NICE TO THE

INDIANS.

THEY SAID IF IT WASN'T FOR

COLUMBUS,

WE WOULDN'T HAVE HISPANICS.

Terry: I THINK IT'S

STANDING UP AND

SAYING --

Pat: WE LOVE COLUMBUS AND

THEY WANT

TO TAKE DOWN ALL OF THESE

STATUTES. O

LORD.

IS IT EVER GOING TO END AND

THE ANSWER

IS KNOW.

I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE

DREAMERS

BECAUSE THEY ARE IN THIS

COUNTRY AND

THEY ARE GREAT PEOPLE AND

GREAT

CITIZENS. OKAY, THE PRESIDENT

HAS SAID

TO THESE PEOPLE, THE

DEMOCRATS WHO

WANT TO LET DREAMERS IN.

HE SAYS, I WILL LET THEM

STAY, BUT I

WANT TO MAKE A DEAL THAT I

WANT TO

BUILD A WALL.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE NOT GOING

TO GO WITH

THAT, SO THEY ARE FIGHTING

AGAIN.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: THE PRESIDENT IS

GIVING

CONGRESS HIS LIST OF DEMANDS,

BUT AS

JANET BROWDER REPORTS.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

DOUBLING DOWN ON

IMMIGRATION REFORM.

HE SAYS HIS DEMAND HAS BEEN

OFF THE

TABLE..

THIS IS A CELEBRATION OF

HISPANIC

HERITAGE MONTH, RIGHT?

THE PRESIDENT FRIDAY

SALUTING

HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH AT

THE WHITE

HOUSE..

FROM OUR EARLIEST DAYS,

HISPANIC

AMERICANS HAVE ENRICHED OUR

COUNTRY

AND HELPED SHAPE OUR HISTORY.

PRAISING THE CONTRIBUTIONS

OF

HISPANICS.

BUT ON SUNDAY, A DIFFERENT

TONE TAKING

A STRONG STANCE AGAINST THOSE

WHO

ENTER THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY.

HE LIST THE PRIORITIES WHICH

DEMOCRATS

SAY THREATEN TO DERAIL ON

GOING

NEGOTIATIONS OF DREAMERS..

THE TYPICAL PERSON OF DACA

CAME TO

THIS COUNTRY AT 6 YEARS OF

AGE.

OBVIOUSLY THROUGH NO WILL OF

THEIR

OWN..

LAST MONTH, TRUMP

ANNOUNCED HE WAS

ENDING THE DACA PROGRAM BUT

GAVE

CONGRESS 6 MONTHS TO COME UP

WITH A

FIX. NOW THE LIST OF DEMANDS

INCLUDES

OVERHAULING THE GREEN CARD

SYSTEM.

A CRACK DOWN NOT ACCOMPANYING

MINORS

INTO THIS COUNTRY AND

BUILDING A WALL

N AT THE BORDER AND HIRE

MORE LAW

ENFORCEMENT AND BORDER PATROL

OFFICERS.

NOW WHEN THE PRESIDENT

SAYS MAKE

AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, FOR THE

PEOPLE

HERE, MAKE AMERICA WHITE

AGAIN.

WITH NANCY PELOSI, WHERE

HE AGREED

TO EXTEND DACA PROTECTION.

BUT RESPONDING TO THIS NEW

LIST OF

DEMANDS, PELOSI SAYS THE

PRESIDENT'S

LIST FAILS TO LIST ANY

ATTEMPT AT A

COMPROMISE TO RULE OUT

NEGOTIATIONS.

THIS COULD ALSO DIVIDE

REPUBLICANS TO

DRAFT LEGISLATION PROVIDING

CITIZENSHIP FOR DREAMERS.

THEY WILL

REVIEW THE LIST AND CONSULT

WITH THE

WHITE HOUSE.

IN WASHINGTON, JENNA BROWDER,

CBN

NEWS.

Pat: DON'T YOU THINK THERE

WAS

SOMETHING IN WASHINGTON THAT

WAS NOT

POLITICAL? DON'T YOU WISH

THERE WAS

SOMETHING IN WASHINGTON?

Terry: IF WE WAIT LONG

ENOUGH, THE

CHERRY BLOSSOM WILL BLOOM..

THEY WERE NOT CHERRY

BLOSSOM.

IT'S CRAZY. LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, BUT

ANYHOW.

THERE IS SOMETHING

INTERESTING THAT

THE TRUMP JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

IS DOING.

REMEMBER THAT CAKE BAKER IN

OREGON,

EXCUSE ME, COLORADO, WHERE

THEY SUED

THE GUY UNDER THE STATE LAW

BECAUSE HE

SAID I CANNOT IN GOOD

CONSCIOUS MAKE A

WEDDING CAKE FOR A GAY COUPLE

TO BE

MARRIED.

THEY DON'T BELIEVE IN GAY

MARRIAGE.

THEY STUDIO -- SUED HIM AND

THEY

FIRED HIM AND IT AMOUNTED UP

TO A HUGE

FINE.

OKAY, HE IS COMING UP NOW AND

THE

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS SAYING,

NO WAY,

WE DON'T AGREE WITH COLORADO

IN THAT

ONE.

WE THINK THERE SHOULD BE

FREEDOM IN

BELIEF IN AMERICA AND THE

BELIEF IS

PARAMOUNT AND TO TAKE A

STANCE IN

THIS GAY LAW. IS THAT LAW A

FEDERAL

RIGHT? IS THAT GOING TO

TRUMP THE

STATE LAW OR NOT? I THINK IT

SHOULD,

BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY ARE

GOING TO

INTERPRET IT.

IT'S GOING TO BE UP FOR

GRABS. I THINK

THAT CAKE BAKER TO GET OFF

THE HOOK,

THEY OUGHT TO BE ABLE, THE

JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT OBVIOUSLY IS NOT

GOING TO

SUE HIM AND THE COLORADO

PEOPLE AREN'T

GOING TO SUE HIM.

THEY SHOULD MAYBE MAKE IT A

FEDERAL

ACTION.

IT'S HIGH TIME WE STOOD UP

FOR

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN THIS

COUNTRY.

THE 1ST AMENDMENT, THE MOST

IMPORTANT

THING, LISTEN, THE 1ST

AMENDMENT,

CONGRESS SHALL PASS NO LAW

RESPECTING

THE ESTABLISHED RELIGION OR

THE FREE

EXERCISE THEREOF.

THE FREE EXERCISE IS NOT

LEGISLATED

LIE -- LIKE IT SHOULD.

THIS IS TERRIBLE. THIS IS

ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION

VIOLATION OF

THE 1ST AMENDMENT.

BLAH BLAH BLAH, WHAT ABOUT

THE MOST

IMPORTANT TO EXERCISE.

THE CAKE BAKER SAID I UNDER

THE 1ST

AMENDMENT HAVE EXERCISED TO

MAKE

WHATEVER CAKE I WANT AND THEY

SAY WE

AGREE WITH YOU..

THERE WERE MESSAGES SENT

OUT

TELLING THEM THE LAW WILL BE

USED TO

USE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM TO MAKE

SURE

THAT RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IS

PROTECTED IN

THE WORKPLACE AND CAN ACT IN

VIOLATION

OF THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

CBNNEWS.COM.

WELL, THE NATIONAL MALL HERE

IN

WASHINGTON WAS FILLED WITH

UNPRECEDENTED EVENTS.

PAUL STRAND WAS THERE AND

BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

OUR FATHER GOD LOVES WHEN

WE GATHER

AND PRAISE HIM. NOW AS THEY

GATHER AT

THE MALL FOR WORSHIPPING HIM.

IT'S ALL ABOUT KING JESUS,

OKAY?

WE ARE LIFTING HIS NAME UP.

IF I LIFT YOU UP WITH ALL MEN

UNTO ME.

IT'S THE HOLY GHOST FOR

ALL PEOPLE

OF COLOR.

THIS WAS GOING ON ALL DAY

AND

WEEKEND LONG.

THIS IS IN THE MONUMENT AND

THE CENTER

OF THE CAPITOL.

I HOPE A LOT OF CHURCHES

CATCH

THIS.

IT'S THE CROSS, IT'S THE

CROSS THAT

SET US FREE. THAT'S OUR

STATUTE OF

LIBERTY.

IT'S OUR COMPASSION TO A

DYING

WORLD.

WE NEED TO BE FILLED WITH THE

COMPASSION OF CHRIST.

ALL THE WAY FROM

MOZAMBIQUE WHERE

SHE HAD MANY CRYING ON THEIR

KNEES AND

CRYING TO GOD..

POWER TO THE PEOPLE. WE

ARE COMING

IN.

POWER TO ALMIGHTY GOD OF A

NATION OF

AMERICA.

THE PRAYER AND ISRAEL WAS

FOUNDED

THROUGH PRAYER.

THEY CRIED FOR A LAND AND

THEY GOT A

LAND.

WE HAVE A SHOT THROUGH

THIS

PRESIDENCY TO SEE JESUS.

THE PURPOSE OF AWAKEN THE

DAWN IS

TO LOVE ON THE LORD AND

WORSHIP HIM.

THE BELIEVERS SAY HE'S GOING

TO SHOW

SOME LOVE TO A NATION THAT

SHOWED IT

TO HIM.

REPORTING FROM THE NATIONAL

MALL..

THANKS, PAUL.

WE'LL HAVE A RAISE TO THIS IN

WASHINGTON.

TELLING HIM THAT WANTS A

PEACE DEAL.

DAVID FRIEDMAN SAYS HE'LL

STILL PUSH

TO RELOCATE THE EMBASSY.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: THAT'S A PROMISE. WE

GOT IT

READY, WE BUILT THE LAND AND

SO FORTH.

THIS HAS BEEN HELD UP FOREVER

BY THE

STATE DEPARTMENT FOR FEAR OF

OFFENDING

THE ARABS.

WHY WOULD THEY OFFEND THE

ARABS. LET'S

FACE IT, THE UNITED STATES

HAS A

PERFECT RIGHT TO PUT AN

EMBASSY WHERE

THE SOVEREIGN NATION IS.

IT'S THE CAPITAL OF ISRAEL.

IT'S NOT TEL AVIV.

IT'S JERUSALEM.

THE MAIN OFFICES OF THE

ISRAELI

GOVERNMENT IS LOCATED IN

JERUSALEM.

IT'S TIME WE STOP THIS

FICTION.

DONALD TRUMP SAID HE WAS

GOING TO DO

IT AND STOP THE FICTION AND

BUILD THE

EMBASSY.

WHY WOULD YOU WORRY? THE

MUSLIMS

AREN'T GOING TO DO ANYTHING

IF WE PUT

AN EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM. GIVE

PEOPLE A

CHANCE.

IF IT'S THE EMBASSY OR

APARTMENTS

BEING BUILT OR SOMETHING

ELSE.

JERUSALEM IS THE CAPITAL OF

ISRAEL.

LET'S FACE IT.

PAT, ALONG THOSE LINES, AT

A TIME

OF RISING THERE IS THE

TABERNACLE AND

THE STORY..

THEY CAME TO THE END OF

THE EARTH

FOR THIS CELEBRATION..

FOR ZACHARIAH THE PROFIT

IN THE

BOOK OF ZACHARIAH WHEN ALL

THE NATIONS

WILL COME TO THE TABERNACLE

AND

WORSHIP THE LORD HERE.

MORE THAN 5,000 TO NEARLY

100

NATIONS CAME HERE ON OPENING

NIGHT TO

PROUDLY STAND WITH ISRAEL AND

CELEBRATE THE BIBLICAL PEACE

OF THE

TABERNACLE..

AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT

HAS

ESTABLISHED FOR ALMOST 40

YEARS NOW

THIS INTERNATIONAL GATHERING

OF THE

BODY OF THE CHRIST IN A

UNIQUE WAY

THAT YOU CAN'T FIND ANYWHERE

ELSE.

THE INTERNATIONAL

CHRISTIAN

CELEBRATION IN JERUSALEM

STARTED IN

1980 AFTER 13 COUNTRIES MOVED

THEIR

EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM.

THE 1967 SIX-DAY WAR MADE

THAT

POSSIBLE BY UNITING ISRAEL.

IT'S SO EXCITING.

A JUBILANT YEAR FOR

JERUSALEM, WE ARE

MARKING 60 YEARS BACK WHEN IT

WAS

CELEBRATE SOVEREIGNTY.

MANY OF THOSE CELEBRATING,

FIRST

TIMERS.

WE ARE HERE TO CELEBRATE

THE

TABERNACLE FOR THE FIRST TIME.

GOD ASKED ME TO COME TO

REPRESENT

THE NATION.

I BROUGHT A TEAM OF 20

PEOPLE. WE ARE

HERE FROM THE END OF THE

EARTH.

ASKED WHY THEY STAND WITH

ISRAEL?

WE HAVE THE LAND

FLOURISHING..

BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS SO.

THIS IS MANY MISSIONS.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GO

AGAINST GOD,

THAT'S ALL I CAN SAY.

CHRIS MITCHELL, JERUSALEM.

THANKS, CHRIS, LOOKS LIKE

THEY HAD

A GREAT TIME. PAT, BACK TO

YOU.

Pat: I HAD THE PLEASURE OF

SPEAKING

TO THEM.

IT WAS POWERFUL.

I THINK THEY MOVED THE VENUE.

WHEN I WAS THERE, IT WASN'T

AS BIG AS

IT IS NOW.

Terry: IT'S A HUGE VENUE.

THEY WERE COMING FROM ALL

DIRECTIONS.

Pat: THIS IS GOING TO WARM

YOUR

HEART. THIS IS FROM DALLAS

THAT YOU

WILL LOVE.

Terry: COMING FROM DALLAS,

THIS IS

ABOUT THE HOMELESS THAT IS

COMING TO

THE CHURCH.

I CAN UNDERSTAND WHERE

THEY ARE

COMING FROM..

WE'LL TAKE YOU INSIDE THIS

OUTDOOR

CHURCH.

BUT FIRST COMING TO QUESTIONS

AND

ANSWERS. LISA SAID, THEY

DECIDED TO

TAKE THE WORD "CHRISTIAN" OUT.

WHY? THAT IS ALL NEXT.

Terry: IT'S TIME FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS

AND SOME HONEST ANSWERS.

THIS COMES FROM LINDA WHO

SAYS I HAVE

BEEN ATTENDING MY CHURCH

SINCE 1989.

I WAS BAPTIZED THERE AND

RAISED MY

CHILDREN THERE.

THERE WERE NOT SO MANY PEOPLE

THERE

AND NOW THERE IS THOUSANDS.

NOW THEY DECIDED TO TAKE THE

WORD

CHRISTIAN. WHY?

Pat: I DON'T KNOW, DID THEY

CHANGE

THE NAME TO BAPTIST OR

LUTHERAN?

THERE ARE NOT TOO MANY

CHRISTIAN

CHURCHES.

OF COURSE, THAT'S A SEPARATE

DENOMINATION.

I REALLY DON'T KNOW.

I WILL TELL YOU THERE WAS ONE

ORGANIZATION AND THEY WILL

PROBABLY

JUMP ON ME FOR THIS. IT WAS

CALLED THE

CHRISTIAN CHILDREN'S FUND.

IT WAS A WONDERFUL CHARITY

AND I WAS A

GREAT FAN OF WHAT THEY WERE

DOING.

THEY TOOK THE NAME CHRISTIAN

AND

CHANGED IT TO THE CHILD FUND.

IT WAS LIKE SOMEBODY STUCK A

KNIFE IN

MY HEART.

IT WAS SOMETHING ABOUT IT

THAT TO ME

IT WAS TERRIBLE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE

DONE IN

THIS CHURCH. MAYBE IT WAS

CALLED

CHRISTIAN AND NOW

PRESBYTERIAN.

I DON'T KNOW. I CAN'T

COMMENT.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEW WHO

SAID I'M A

PILOT AND GOT FIRED FROM MY

WORK THIS

YEAR AND I MADE ABOUT $90,000.

MY WIFE IS UPSET. IT'S NOW

OCTOBER AND

I DON'T HAVE A JOB YET. I DO

HAVE

FAITH BUT NO JOB YET. WHAT AM

I DOING

WRONG?

WHAT YOU ARE DOING WRONG

IS YOU

NEED TO GO TO A PLACE WHERE

THEY ARE

HIRING PILOTS.

THERE IS A DEMAND FOR PRIVATE

PILOTS

AND OF COURSE THERE ARE

COMMERCIAL

OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE WHICH

MEANS

YOU MAY HAVE TO UPGRADE YOUR

SKILL. I

THINK IF YOU ARE A GOOD PILOT

AND YOU

HAVE GOOD EXPERIENCE AND GOOD

REFERENCES, THIS SHOULDN'T BE

TOO MUCH

TROUBLE FINDING A POSITION

WITH AN

ORGANIZATION THAT HAS ITS OWN

PRIVATE

PLAN.

I NOTICE HOW GE IS SELLING A

BUNCH OF

THEIR PLANES. MAYBE SOME ARE

DOWNGRADING, BUT I THINK YOU

CAN FIND

A JOB.

GET OUT THERE AND LOOK FOR

IT. DON'T

WAIT FOR A KNOCK ON THE DOORS.

YOU GO KNOCK ON THEIR DOORS

AND ANSWER

ADS WHERE THERE ARE PLACES.

YOU NEVER KNOW. ALL RIGHT.

Terry: THIS IS A MOM AND

I'M A

TEACHER AND A PARENT.

I HAVE SEEN KIDS CARRYING

BACKPACKS

WITH HEAVY COMPONENTS.

I'M CONCERNED ABOUT WEIGHTY

BACKPACKS.

THIS WEEK, MY CHILD'S

BACKPACK WAS

ABOUT 30 POUNDS. HOW CAN I

BECOME AN

ADVOCATE FOR THIS?

YOU CAN JOIN THE TEACHERS

PARENT

ASSOCIATION.

I DON'T THINK IT'S DIFFICULT

TO

ADVOCATE FOR CHILD'S HEALTH.

I THINK

THOSE BACKPACKS ARE STRESSING

THE

YOUNG BODY BEYOND WHAT THEY

NEED.

IF A CHILD IS UNDER A LOAD

BEYOND WHAT

HIS PHYSICAL BODY CAN STAND,

HE WILL

WIND UP WITH SOME KIND OF

CURVATURE,

SOME KIND OF ARTHRITIS, SOME

KIND OF

DAMAGE.

I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING

ABOUT AND

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU.

MAKE A NOISE, GO TO THE LOCAL

TELEVISION STATION. GET

PEOPLE

TOGETHER AND BEGIN A CRUSADE

TO ALL

THE THINGS THAT YOU CAN DO.

I THINK THE SCHOOL BOARD WILL

WANT TO

STOP ON THAT ONE REAL FAST.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEW WHO

SAYS MY

STORY AND QUESTION IS THAT I

LIVED

WITH A MAN FOR 10 YEARS. HE

HAD FIVE

CHILDREN BY FOUR DIFFERENT

WOMEN, HE

HAD NO MONEY, NO HOME AND NO

CREDIT. I

TOOK HIM INTO MY HOME FOR ALL

OF THOSE

YEARS. HE TOLD ME HE WOULD

HELP ME

WHEN HIS CHILD SUPPORT WAS

DONE.

WELL HIS CHILD SUPPORT WAS

WELL-OFF

AND MY FATHER WAS SICK AND HE

PASSED

AWAY.

I KEEP ASKING FOR KARMA TO

COME BACK

ON HIM BUT NOTHING HAPPENS.

I JUST FOUND OUT HE GOT

MARRIED 18

MONTHS AFTER DOING ALL OF

THIS BAD

STUFF TO ME. DOES GOD SERVE

JUSTICE ON

ALL THESE BAD PEOPLE?

THIS KARMA, THOSE

CHRISTIANS AREN'T

WAITING FOR KARMA TO HIT

SOMETHING.

THAT'S THE WHEEL WHEN KARMA

WILL COME

BACK. WILL IT COME BACK? NO.

YOU ARE FOOLISH.

YOU ARE PICKING UP THE TAB

FOR HIS

MEALS AND HE'S LIVING ON YOU

AND HE'S

A FREELOADER AND YOU ARE

DISCOURAGED

BECAUSE HE WALKED OUT ON YOU?

HE'S A

BUM. WHY DON'T YOU ACT LIKE

WHAT HE

WAS.

YOU MADE A BAD CALL.

I RECOMMEND YOU RECOVER FROM

IT.

SO HE WENT OFF AND GOT

MARRIED.

SO RATHER THAN WAITING FOR

SOME COSMIC

EVENT TO STRIKE HIM DOWN, WHY

DON'T

YOU JUST GET ON WITH YOUR

LIFE AND

FORGIVE.

FORGIVE THAT YOUR HEAVENLY

FATHER

MIGHT FORGIVE YOU.

FORGIVE HIM. OKAY..

SHE WAS LIVING WITH THIS

GUY AND

THEY WEREN'T MARRIED.

HE HAD FIVE CHILDREN..

SHE'S WAITING FOR KARMA?

YOU HAVE

GOOD KARMA AND BAD KARMA,

THAT'S

RIDICULOUS.

ALL RIGHT. LET ME SHOW YOU

SOMETHING

WONDERFUL. I LOVE DALLAS.

DALLAS IS A

GREAT CITY.

THERE IS A CHURCH DOWN IN

DALLAS THAT

IS REACHING THE HOMELESS

POPULATION BY

TAKING THIS MESSAGE TO WHERE

THE

HOMELESS LIVE.

NOT INSIDE A BUILDING, BUT

OUTSIDE IN

THE CHURCH PARKING LOT.

IT'S CALLED SOUL CHURCH, AND

IT'S

PERFORMED THIS MINISTRY FOR

MORE THAN

20 YEARS. CHARLENE AARON HAS

THIS.

6 DAYS A WEEK THIS DALLAS

PARKING

LOT LOOKS PLAIN AND

UNREMARKABLE. THEN

ON SUNDAYS IT TRANSFORMS INTO

SOMETHING SPECIAL. YOU HEARD

THE

CHILDREN'S RHYME, HERE IS THE

CHURCH,

HERE IS THE STEEPLE, OPEN THE

DOOR AND

HERE ARE ALL THE PEOPLE.

WELL, ON THIS HOT DALLAS CITY

PARKING

LOT THERE IS A CHURCH WITHOUT

WALLS

AIMED TO MINISTERING TO THE

HOMELESS

PEOPLE. FOR 20 YEARS, SOUL

CHURCH HAS

USED PRAISE SONGS TO MINISTER

TO THOSE

HERE TO FEED BODY, MIND AND

SOUL.

THERE IS MANY TO BE DONE.

THIS HAS MULTIPLIED FROM 40

TO 200.

PASTOR LEON SERVES THIS

CHURCH.

WE GET HERE AT 5:00 IN THE

MORNING.

WE HAVE TENTS.

THEY HAVE A LIVE BAND EVERY

WEEKEND.

THEY OPEN ARMS TO WELCOME

THEM..

IN MY CHURCH, YOU CAN COME

DRUNK

AND STRUNG OUT. AND A LOT OF

THEM DO.

THEY ARE BROKEN. THEY WANT TO

GET BACK

TO WHERE THEY WERE. A LOT OF

THEM HAVE

BEEN IN CHURCH AND THEY COME

TO GET

LOVED ON.

SEEKING ACCEPTANCE.

SOMETHING PASTOR BIRDD

KNOWS WELL..

I WAS FREE BASING COCAINE

WHEN I

GOT HERE.

I UNDERSTAND WHERE THEY ARE

COMING

FROM.

HOT MEALS ARE SERVED ALONG

WITH THE

GOSPEL AND THE MESSAGE

REMAINS THE

SAME.

WE STARTED WITH 10 GALLONS

OF

COFFEE AND A BASKET OF DONUTS.

SINCE THEY BEGAN, SOUL HAS

NEVER

CANCELED A SERVICE BECAUSE

THOSE WHO

NEED IT, ALWAYS SHOW UP.

IF IT'S RAINING, WE HAVE

HEFTY

BAGS. WE POKE A HOLE ON THE

TOP.

THAT'S OUR SOLE DESIRE. WE

ARE HERE

AND IT'S AMAZING. SUNDAY

MORNING,

THERE IS SOMEBODY HERE.

PASTOR JEFFREY PARKER SAYS

THAT

THOSE ATTENDING THE SERVICE

COME FROM

ALL BACKGROUNDS.

THOSE THAT COME WHEN THEY

ARE

80-YEAR-OLDS, IT REALLY

BREAKS MY

HEART WHEN I SEE SENIORS

LIVING AMONG

THIS POPULATION OF

HOMELESSNESS. SOME

OF THEM VERY SICK..

STILL HE SEE'S THIS MAKING

A STRONG

IMPACT.

WE SEE THE TESTIMONIES OF

THEM

GETTING JOBS AND MOVING INTO

THEIR OWN

APARTMENT NOW AND THEM

SHOWING UP AT

BIBLE STUDIES NOW.

ALL OF THESE ARE EVIDENCE AND

SIGNS OF

WHAT THEY DO ALL WEEK. WE SEE

THIS

CHANGE HERE.

DEBRA BLAMED GOD FOR THE

DEATH OF

HER TWO CHILDREN. AFTER

SERVING TIME

FOR DRUGS AND PROSTITUTION,

THE ALTAR

LITERALLY CALLED TO HER.

AFTER BEING ANNOYED BY THE

MUSIC AFTER

SHE PAID A VISIT.

I CAME HERE TO TELL THEM

TO TURN

YOUR STUPID MUSIC ON. I

WALKED IN ON

THE PARKING LOT AND I DIDN'T

REALIZE

IT WAS A CHURCH AND IT DREW

ME IN AND

I SAW LOVE. WITH THAT, I SAW

NO

JUDGMENT.

EVERYBODY WAS JUST LIKE ME

BROKEN,

JUST BROKEN.

AND I STARTED STAYING LATER

AND LATER,

YOU KNOW.

AND EVENTUALLY I FOUND JESUS

ON THIS

PARKING LOT. AND NOW I KNOW

THAT GOD

POSITIONED ME HERE BECAUSE HE

KNEW I

WAS NOT READY TO WALK INTO A

CHURCH

WITH WALLS.

I COULDN'T DO IT.

TODAY, DEBRA SERVES AT THE

CHURCH.

I STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO

GO.

I'M STILL A MESS.

YOU ARE A WORK IN PROGRESS.

I AM. I'M HERE FOR THE

LORD AND

HE'S GIVEN ME EVERYTHING. I

CAN'T

THANK HIM ENOUGH.

FOR SOME REASON AND

MIRACLES, THIS

KEEPS BREEDING HOPE ONE SOUL

AT A

TIME..

AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT

SOMEONE WILL

COME UP NEEDING PRAYER.

THIS IS FOR THE LORD.

I HOPE THIS GOES ON FOR A

LONG TIME.

CHARLENE AARON.

DALLAS.

Terry: I LOVE THIS.

IF YOU HAD TO SUM UP WHAT

HE'S DOING

FOR ALL OF US, HE SAYS GO TO

WHERE

THEY ARE. THOSE WHO DON'T

KNOW ME,

THOSE WHO ARE HURTING AND

STRUGGLING.

SEND A MESSAGE OF MY LOVE.

WE LOVE WHAT THIS CHURCH

WITHOUT WALLS

IS DOING.

I WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE YOU

WHEN GOD

GIVES YOU AN OPPORTUNITY IS

TO GO

WHERE PEOPLE ARE HURTING AND

HELP THEM

FIND JESUS.

UP NEXT, A YOUNG WOMAN

WITH A RARE

DISORDER WHO FOUGHT BACK

AGAINST THE

ONLINE BULLIES..

I KNEW DEEP DOWN THAT I

WASN'T

GOING TO BE THE PEOPLE WHO

THIS

DEFINITION LIVES THEM TO BE.

LIZZIE VELASQUEZ SHARES

HER STORY.

THAT'S NEXT.

THAT'S NEXT.

Terry: LIZZIE VELASQUEZ IS

A

MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER WHO IS

CALLED

COURAGEOUS.

UNFORTUNATELY SHE'S BEEN

CALLED FAR

FAR WORSE. OVER HER LIFE SHE

HAS

ENDURED TEASES AND YET SHE'S

INSPIRED

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ALONG THE

WAY.

SOMEONE POSTED A VIDEO

CALLING ME

THE WORLD'S UGLIEST WOMAN.

FROM INTERVIEWS, IF YOU ARE

GOING TO

BE SO UGLY, WHY DIDN'T YOUR

PARENTS

ABORT YOU.

CAN YOU PLEASE FIND A GUN AND

KILL

YOURSELF. I READ EVERYONE

BECAUSE I

WAS DETERMINED AND DESPERATE

TO FIND

ONE COMMENT THAT SAID, YOU

DON'T KNOW

HER STORY, OR SHE'S JUST A

KID, OR

ANYTHING AND I DIDN'T FIND

THAT AT

ALL.

LIZZIE VELASQUEZ WAS BORN

WITH A

SYNDROME.

A DISORDER THAT PREVENTED HER

FROM

GAINING WEIGHT AND CAUSED

BLINDNESS IN

HER RIGHT EYE.

HER PARENT DID EVERYTHING TO

MAKE HER

FEEL NORMAL..

I REMEMBER THEM SAYING YOU

ARE

NORMAL YOU ARE JUST SMALLER

THAN OTHER

KIDS.

LIZZIE WAS BULLIED BECAUSE

OF HER

APPEARANCE.

A LOT OF IT WAS JUST NAME

CALLING.

WHY ARE YOU SO SKINNY AND

POINTING.

OFTENTIMES THERE WERE NO

WORDS SAID TO

ME, BUT IT WAS LIKE THE SOUND

OF A

MICROPHONE.

HER ONLY REFUGE WAS HER

FAMILY AND

GOD..

MY FAITH WAS INSTILLED IN

ME FROM

DAY ONE. WHEN I WAS AT

CHURCH, I WAS

THE HAPPIEST KID IN THE WORLD.

WHEN LIZZIE ENTERED MIDDLE

SCHOOL,

THE BULLYING INTENSIFIED AND

SO DID

HER FRUSTRATION.

HOW COME I CAN ONLY SEE

OUT OF ONE

EYE, HOW COME MY CLOTHES

DON'T FIT,

HOW COME I CAN'T DO THIS OR

THAT.

NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRIED,

NO MATTER

WHAT I DID, I WAS NOT GOING

TO LOOK

LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE..

LIZZIE JOINED A SCHOOL

CLUB TO TRY

TO ONE THE FRIENDSHIP OF HER

PEERS..

NOBODY DID THIS TO ME ON

PURPOSE.

STOP WHINING, STOP

COMPLAINING. GOD IS

THE REASON I'M HERE. IF I'M

GOING TO

CONTINUE ON THIS FAITH

JOURNEY, I'M

GOING TO WALK IT.

GOD BROUGHT ME HERE AND IF

HE'S NOT

LEAVING THIS PATH, NEITHER AM

I.

FROM THAT DAY FORWARD,

THINGS BEGAN

TO CHANGE..

I WAS REALLY HAPPY.

I HAD INCREDIBLE FRIENDS

AROUND ME.

LIZZIE'S CONFIDENCE GREW,

BUT SHE

WASN'T PREPARED FOR WHAT

WOULD HAPPEN

HER JUNIOR YEAR OF HIGH

SCHOOL.

I DON'T THINK I WILL EVER

BE ABLE

TO ADEQUATELY DESCRIBE WHAT I

FELT IN

THAT MOMENT.

I WAS REALLY CONFUSED AND

UPSET AND

ANGRY.

WHAT IN THE WORLD DO I DO

NOW? I

WORKED SO HARD TO GET MY

CONFIDENCE UP

TO WHERE IT WAS.

NOW IT DOESN'T EVEN EXIST.

I KNEW DEEP DOWN I WAS NOT

GOING TO

LET THIS OR THOSE PEOPLE BE

THE

DEFINITION OF WHO I WAS MEANT

TO BE.

LIZZIE EMERGED HERSELF IN

SCHOOL.

LATER SHE WAS ASKED TO SHARE

HER STORY

WITH THE FRESHMAN CLASS. SHE

WAS

APPREHENSIVE BUT THE NEXT

MORNING SHE

STOOD UP IN FRONT OF 400

STUDENTS AND

SPOKE..

AFTER I SPOKE, I NOTICED

EVERYONE

WAS LISTENING. THERE WAS

SILENCE THERE.

IN THAT EXACT MOMENT I NEVER

FELT SO

COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT IN

MY OWN

SKIN AND REALIZED WE ALL

FEEL THIS

WAY. WE ARE NOT STRONG

ENOUGH, NOT

CONFIDENT ENOUGH.

SHE LOOKED UP.

EVERYONE WANTED TO HUG ME

AND TELL

ME HOW MUCH MY STORY TOUCHED

THEM. I

GET CHILLS THINKING ABOUT IT

BECAUSE

IT WAS AT THIS MOMENT THAT I

FELT I

WAS GOING TO BE OKAY.

THAT WAS THE DAY I FOUND MY

PURPOSE..

FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS,

LIZZIE SHARED

HER STORY AT CHURCHES AND

CONFERENCES

NATIONWIDE.

THEN IN 2013, ANOTHER VIDEO

OF HER

WENT VIRAL.

THIS TIME IT WAS A PEP TALK

SHE GAVE

ON SELF -- IMAGE THAT

GARNERED

THOUSANDS OF VIEWS..

ALL THE WORDS THAT CAME

OUT OF MY

MOUTH, IT WAS GOD.

IT WASN'T ME.

NO W SHE SPEAKS AROUND THE

WORLD.

LIZZIE SHARES HOW TO OVERCOME

LIFE'S

CHALLENGES.

I FEEL LIKE JESUS PUT ME

IN THIS

LITTLE BODY TO SHOW PEOPLE

THAT NO

MATTER WHAT SIZE YOU ARE, OR

WHERE YOU

COME FROM, OR WHAT YOU GO

THROUGH,

THERE IS A GOD WHO IS THERE

WHO WILL

NEVER LEAVE YOU AND THAT WILL

SURPASS

ANY OBSTACLE.

Terry: LIZZIE VELASQUEZ,

HER BODY

MAYBE LITTLE BUT HER SPIRIT

IS GIANT.

HOW WONDERFUL TO FIGURE OUT

WHAT YOU

ARE HERE FOR AND TO BE

WILLING TO BE

AN INSPIRATION AND BOLD IN

YOUR

MESSAGE AND TO GUARD YOUR

HEART

AGAINST THOSE WHO WOULD

DIMINISH YOU.

LIZZIE, YOU GO, YOU'VE GOT

SOMETHING

TO SAY, GIRL, AND WE ARE

LISTENING. IF

YOU HAVE SOMETHING MORE FOR

LIZZIE,

PICK UP THE TITLE TO THE BOOK.

IT'S CALLED "DARE TO BE

KIND".

UP NEXT, A VILLAGE AND IT'S

ALL UP TO

YOU. SEE HOW THIS HAS CHANGED

ONE

MOTHER'S LIFE.

THAT'S NEXT. #

THAT'S NEXT. #

Efrem: WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON.

VICE-PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE

WENT TO SEE

PEYTON MANNING PLAY AT A

FOOTBALL GAME.

HE LEFT BECAUSE HE SAID HE

WILL NOT

ATTEND AN EVENT THAT

DISRESPECTS OUR

FLAG AND OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM.

THE MANILA INTERNATIONAL

BOOK FAIR

AIMED FOR CHILDREN AND

"SUPERBOOK"

CAME ALONG. THIS INCLUDED A

STORY

TELLING SESSION. THEY WERE

ABLE TO

ATTEND BECAUSE THE PARTNERS

WITH

CHRISTIANS PUBLISHERS.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

GOING TO

CBN.COM/INTERNATIONAL. WE'LL

BE RIGHT

BACK WITH MORE AFTER THIS.

Terry: TO CALL IT THE WOMAN

AND THE

MOTHER AND CHILDREN WERE SICK

AND

STARVING AND ALL BECAUSE OF A

LACK OF

CLEAN WATER.

SOME DAYS ALL HER FAMILY HAD

TO EAT

WERE TREE LEAVES, BUT NOT

ANYMORE

THANKS TO OUR PARTNERSHIP

WITH

INNOVATIONS IN AFRICA.

MANY DAYS TEKO WALKS 4

MILES TO GET

WATER.

I WAS SO THIRSTY AND TOO

WEAK BUT A

DRANK IT BUT I COULDN'T GIVE

IT TO MY

CHILDREN.

THEY WOULD BE CRYING..

WITH BARELY ENOUGH WATER,

GROWING

CROPS IS IMPOSSIBLE. THEY

GATHER

LEAVES TO EAT.

WITH HOT WATER, EVERYTHING

IS DIRTY.

MY CHILDREN ARE ALWAYS SICK.

SOMETIMES

THEY COUGH UP BLOOD.

I ASK THE LORD, WHY HE GAVE

ME THE

CHILDREN. I WOULD RATHER

SUFFER.

SHE CUT GRASS AND SELLING

IT IN THE

MARKET.

BUT BY CUTTING THE GRASS, A

WOMAN CAN

EXPECT TO SELL 1 BUNDLE FOR

$0.40.

THAT DAY, NO ONE WOULD BY

THE CROP.

I WALKED ALL THE WAY BACK

HOPE HOPING

SOMEONE WOULD GIVE US SOME

FOOD, BUT

NO ONE DID.

AS SOON AS WE HEARD OF

THIS, THE

NEWS SPREAD QUICKLY.

SOON THE NEED FOR CLEAN WATER

FINALLY

ENDED. THIS IS A TEMPORARY

TAP. WE ARE

INSTALLING 9 PERMANENT TAPS

TOTAL.

WE ARE BUILDING A WATER TAP

HERE AND

THAT IS GOING TO GIVE US WHAT

WE NEED

TO TAP WATER A MILE IN THAT

DIRECTION

AND THAT DIRECTION.

ALL THE PEOPLE FROM THIS

VILLAGE WILL

HAVE CLEAN WATER.

THANK YOU FOR RESCUING US.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE

WATER

THIS CLOSE. NEXT TIME YOU

VISIT, YOU

WILL SEE TOMATOES, ONIONS AND

OTHER

VEGETABLES GROWING FOR US TO

EAT AND

TO SELL IN THE MARKET.

THANKS TO CBN AND

INTERNATIONAL

AFRICA, THEY HAVE NOW GOOD

NUTRITION

FOOD TO EAT AND FRESH CLEAN

WATER

RIGHT AT THEIR FINGER TIPS..

TODAY, NOW IT'S NEAR AND

MY

CHILDREN CAN WALK TO GET

WATER.

MAY GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.

WELL, CANDICE CURRY, HAS

BEEN BEEN

FEATURED ON THE TODAY SHOW

AND GOOD

MORNING AMERICA. SHE TALKS

ABOUT HOUSE

SHE'S ENDURED LIFE AND HOW

SHE'S PUT

IT ALTOGETHER..

AS A LITTLE GIRL, I

THOUGHT HE WAS

THE MOON AND THE BEST DAD

EVER UNTIL I

LEARNED HE WAS A DIFFERENT

DAD..

CANDICE DAD WAS A CONMAN

EVEN

THOUGH HER MOTHER SCRAPED TO

PROVIDE

FOR HER FAMILY. CANDICE

STRUGGLED FOR

HER DAD'S APPROVAL..

I WOULD HAVE DONE ANYTHING

HE ASKED

TO PLEASE HIM THAT HE WOULD

WANT TO BE

WITH ME, LIKE ME OR LOVE ME

OR THINK I

WAS COOL. HE STARTED GIVING

ME DRUGS

IN HIGH SCHOOL.

I TOOK THEM BECAUSE I WANTED

HIM TO

LIKE ME..

ONE NIGHT, WHEN SHE WAS 16.

CANDICE WAS RAPED BY A FRIEND

OF HER

FATHER'S. WHEN HER DAD FOUND

OUT,

CANDICE EXPECTED HE WOULD

DEFEND HER.

INSTEAD HE THREATENED IF I

EVER

TOLD HE WOULD MAKE MY LIFE A

LIVING

HELL. HE THREW ME UNDER THE

BUS SO HE

WOULDN'T GET IN TROUBLE WITH

MY MOM.

THIS IS WHEN I VALUED HIM.

THAT IS WHEN I REALLY BUILT A

WALL UP

AND STOPPED TRUSTING ANYBODY.

WHY

WOULD ANYBODY ELSE SEE ANY

REDEEMING

QUALITIES IN ME IF HE

COULDN'T.

SO, IT CHANGED ME.

IT HARDENED ME.

THE PAIN OF HER DAD'S

REJECTION

STAYED WITH CANDICE FOR

YEARS..

I JUST DIDN'T THINK I WAS

GOOD

ENOUGH FOR ANYBODY.

AS SOON AS SOMEBODY GOT

CLOSE, I WOULD

INTENTIONALLY DESTROY IT BY

MAKING

HORRIBLE DECISIONS AND

DESTROYED

HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS SO THAT

THEY

WOULDN'T GET ANY CLOSER.

AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, SHE

STARTED

WORKING IN THE RESTAURANT

BUSINESS.

THEN ON IMPULSE, GOT MARRIED

IN VEGAS

AND SOON HAD A DAUGHTER.

BUT THE MARRIAGE DIDN'T LAST

AND A FEW

YEARS LATER, SHE MET BRANDON

AT WORK.

I JUST FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM

BECAUSE

HE WAS SO GOOD TO ME AND MY

DAUGHTER.

NO ONE HAD COME TO ME AND

LOVED ON

ME WITHOUT EXPECTING

SOMETHING FROM

ME..

THE TWO MARRIED, EXCITED

ABOUT

THEIR FUTURE TOGETHER. WITHIN

A YEAR,

CANDICE HAD TRIPLETS, BUT THE

COUPLE

WASN'T READY FOR THE DEMANDS.

I GOT MARRIED. PHYSICALLY,

I HAD

THREE BABIES.

HAVING THREE BABIES TAKES A

TOLL ON

YOUR BODY. SO, I DID NOT FEEL

PRETTY.

I WAS GROWING BITTER BECAUSE

HE WAS

GONE ALL THE TIME AND I WAS

AT HOME

WITH THESE BABIES AND IT WAS

VERY HARD

AND HE WAS BITTER BECAUSE HE

WAS

WORKING LIKE CRAZY AND WE

COULDN'T GET

AHEAD. I WASN'T GOOD TO HIM.

I PUSHED HIM AWAY BECAUSE OF

FEAR, AND

EXHAUSTION.

I WAS LITERALLY EXHAUSTED..

DURING THAT TIME,

CANDICE'S OLDEST

DAUGHTER STARTED GOING TO

CHURCH AFTER

HER COUSIN STARTED THE CHOIR.

I STARTED GOING TO CHURCH

BECAUSE

IT WAS HER DESIRE.

CHURCH IS FOR GROWN UP

PEOPLE. I

THOUGHT YOU HAD TO FIT A

CERTAIN MOLD

FOR GOD TO KNOW YOU.

THAT SUMMER, AT VACATION

BIBLE

SCHOOL, HER DAUGHTER GAVE HER

LIFE TO

CHRIST.

IT KIND OF ROCKED ME, YOU

KNOW. I

HADN'T BEEN ANY EXAMPLE OF

CHRIST TO

HER AND HERE SHE WAS ALL IN.

SHE WENT TO THIS CHURCH AND

LISTENING

TO WHO JESUS WAS AND HOW MUCH

HE LOVED

HER AND IT WAS AMEN. I WANTED

HER

BRAVERY AND I WANTED HERE

CONFIDENCE

IN JESUS. SOMETHING STARTED

SOFTENING

ABOUT ME.

I'M LISTENING TO WHO JESUS

WAS..

MEANWHILE SHE CARED THE

GUILT OF

HER MARRIAGE AND FAMILY

FALLING PART.

WE WERE FAILING OUT KIDS

AND

FAILING AT LIFE AND I WASN'T

A GOOD

WIFE TO HIM. SO, THAT WAS

SCARY

BECAUSE I KNEW HE DESERVED

BETTER THAN

ME. WHO I HAD BECOME WHO HE

CHOSE TO

MARRY..

THE COUPLE DECIDED TO

DIVORCE.

THEN CANDICE SAYS GOD SPOKE

TO HER.

THAT'S THE MOMENT THAT I

REALIZED

THAT GOD NEW ME. IT WAS THE

FIRST TIME

THAT I HEARD GOD, AND I

DIDN'T HEAR

HIM AUDIBLY.

IT WAS IN MY HEART AND HE

SAID, YOU

HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR ME AND

HERE I AM

AND I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU

WHAT IT'S

LIKE TO BE MY DAUGHTER.

AND, IF YOU WANT WHY YOU --

YOUR

HUSBAND TO KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE

BEEN

EXPERIENCING, THEN YOU ARE

GOING TO

HAVE TO BE HIS EXAMPLE AND

YOU ARE

GOING TO HAVE TO SHOW WHAT

FORGIVENESS

AND WHAT UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

LOOKS LIKE

AND I DIDN'T WANT TO HEAR

THAT.

CANDICE REACHED OUT TO HER

HUSBAND

AND THEY RECONCILED AND THEY

BEGAN

GOING TO CHURCH.

IT CHANGED OUR WHOLE WORLD.

WE HAVE GIVEN BACK OUR LIVES

TO GOD.

HE TAKES ALL OF OUR BROKEN

PIECES AND

TURNS THEM INTO THIS

BEAUTIFUL STAINED

GLASS AND CREATES THE MOST

AMAZING

PICTURE.

YOU CAN COME TO HIM EXACTLY

THE WAY

YOU ARE.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CLEAN UP

AND MAKE

YOURSELF RIGHT.

THAT'S WHAT HE DOES. THAT'S

WHY HE

SENT JESUS. HE TAKES AWAY OUR

SINS SO

WE DON'T HAVE TO CARRY THEM..

ACTUALLY THE REASON WE

COME TO HIM

AND NEED TO COME TO HIM AND

THE REASON

HIS ARMS ARE OUTSTRETCHED IS

BECAUSE

WE ARE ALL BROKEN.

WE ARE ALL BROKEN PEOPLE.

WITH CANDICE AND HER LACK OF

HER DAD

CARING ABOUT HER ALMOST WAS

ABUSE.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT

WHAT KEEPS

US FROM GOD IS WE ARE AFRAID

BY GOD

AND WHAT TO BELIEVE IN.

WHAT IF I GIVE HIM THAT

TRUST? I

WOULD SAY, WHAT IF? WHAT DO

YOU HAVE

TO LOSE.

IF YOU DON'T TRUST, YOU HAVE

NOTHING.

YOU WILL NEVER HAVE SOMEONE

TO FILL

THAT EMPTY HOLE INSIDE OF YOU.

YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO FIX

IT

YOURSELF.

GOD CREATED YOU AND ME WITH A

PLAN AND

A PURPOSE IN MIND. THE

INTENTION WAS

FOR US TO HAVE RELATIONSHIP

WITH HIM.

THAT'S HOW IT STARTED.

WE CREATED ADAM AND EVE IN A

GARDEN

AND EVERYDAY THEY WALKED IT,

BUT WE

WENT OUR OWN WAY AND YET, THE

GOD OF

UNIVERSE EXTENDS HIS ARMS OUT

WAITING

AND SAYING PLEASE COME HOME

TO ME.

I WANT TO FIX THAT.

I WANT TO FILL THAT EMPTINESS

INSIDE

OF YOU. I WANT TO HELP YOU

BECOME WHAT

YOU WERE CREATED TO BE.

NOT JUDGMENT, BUT MERCY,

LOVE, AND

FORGIVENESS.

WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO FIND

THAT?

THERE IS ONLY ONE PLACE.

AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO INTO

A CHURCH

TO FIND THAT.

YOU CAN DO IT RIGHT NOW AT

THIS MOMENT.

JUST STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

LIFT UP YOUR HANDS, OPEN YOUR

HEART

AND SAY, JESUS, I GET IT AND

I WANT

YOU.

YOU SEE, HE'S BEEN SAYING HE

WANTS YOU

ALL ALONG. NOW YOU SAY YOU

WANT HIM

AND ASK HIM TO FORGIVE YOU

FOR THE

THINGS YOU'VE DONE THAT YOU

KNOW ARE

WRONG. WE SHARED THE FEELINGS

THAT

CANDICE DOES AND KNOWS WHEN

YOU ARE

WRONG.

THAT'S GOD'S PROMISE.

GRAB IT AND RECEIVE IT.

IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE. WE

HAVE A

PACKET FOR YOU CALLED "A NEW

DAY".

IT'S FREE.

WE WANT TO LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS

FROM PSALM 28: 7.

"THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH AND

MY

SHIELD; MY HEART TRUSTS IN

HIM AND HE

HELPS ME." (PSALM 28:7,

NIV)
