LORD CALLED HIM TO DO THIS.

HE SAID I JUST FOLLOWED

INSTRUCTIONS.

I DON'T THINK IT IS ANYTHING I

WENT OUT AND SOUGHT.

IT WAS SOMETHING THE LORD TOLD

ME.

IT IS ALL ABOUT THEM TO KEEP AND

MAXIMIZE WHAT THEY HAVE.

THOSE KIDS ARE OUR NEXT

GENERATION AND NEED TO TEACH THE

RIGHT THINGS TO BE GOOD CITIZENS

AND A STRONG BELIEVER IN CHRIST.

THAT IS A YES, AMEN.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES ORGANIZATION

RELEASED VIDEO ON FACEBOOK

GIVING FANS A CLOSER LOOK AT

WHAT THEIR FAVORITE PLAYERS ARE

ALL ABOUT.

TAKE A LOOK.

I WENT TO CHURCH GOING UP.

IT WASN'T UNTIL I WAS IN MY LAST

YEAR OF COLLEGE I REALIZED I WAS

LIVING OFF OF EVERYONE ELSE'S

SALVATION.

I WASN'T REALLY, I WASN'T DIVING

INTO THE WORD OR EXPLORING THAT

THE WAY I EXPLORED EVERYTHING

ELSE AROUND ME.

I REALIZED I WAS IN THE WRONG

PLACE.

I GREW UP GOING TO CHURCH.

I NEVER KNEW EXACTLY WHAT I

BELIEVED OR WHY.

I REMEMBERED HAVING COLLEGE

MENTORS AND FORMER TEAMMATES

HELP WALKING ME THROUGH THE

WORD.

I ENDED UP READING WHOLE NEW

TESTAMENT FRESHMAN SEMESTER.

BECAME REAL TO ME.

FOR ME I WAS ON A DOWNWARD

SPIR

SPIRAL.

IT WOULD LAST A BIT AND FADE

AWAY.

GORDON: RARELY HEARD IT PUT

THAT WAY, LIVING OFF OTHER

PEOPLE'S SALVATION.

HOPE THAT STRIKES YOU.

DON'T LIVE OUT SOMEONE ELSE'S

FAITH WHETHER IT IS THE FAITH OF

YOUR PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS.

GOD DOESN'T HAVE GRANDCHILDREN.

HE ONLY HAS CHILDREN.

HE IS LOOKING FOR A DIRECT

SEEKING RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU.

YOU CAN HEAR HIS VOICE, KNOW HIS

COUNSEL FOR YOUR LIFE.

FORMER STAR PLAYER PICKS UP A

BAD HABIT TO DEAL WITH HIS PAIN.

GO TO THE CLINIC EVERY 28

DAYS TO GET 360 PILLS A MONTH

AND BECAME A DRUG ADDICT.

GORDON: WATCH THIS FOOTBALL

PLAYER FACE THIS MOMENT OF TRUTH

AT A CEMETERY WHEN WE COME BACK.

GORDON: EXCITED ABOUT PLAYING

FOOTBALL AT THE UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA.

WHEN HE WAS RED SHIRTED HIS

FRESHMAN YEAR, HE TOOK A

TREMENDOUS BLOW.

HE FOUND COMFORT IN ALCOHOL AND

DRUGS AND FOOTBALL DREAMS WERE A

DISTANT MEMORY.

I AM THE 26TH BEST

QUARTERBACK IN THE ENTIRE NATION

AND THIRD OR FOURTH BEST IN

STATE OF FLORIDA.

HIGH SCHOOL STAR ALTON ALWAYS

LOVED FOOTBALL.

BROUGHT THE BEST OUT IN ME.

FOOTBALL WAS MY WAY TO GET A

SCHOLARSHIP.

THERE WAS WILL HAVE A DREAM OF

PLAYING IN THE NFL.

I WAS ON THAT TRACK.

ALTON EARNED A FREE RIDE TO

SOUTH FLORIDA.

YOUNG FRESHMAN RED SHIRTED AND

DIDN'T GET TO PLAY.

I HAD NEVER BEEN SECOND OR

THIRD STRING OR THE GUY THAT IS

NOT GOING TO PLAY AT ALL.

MY EGO WAS HURT.

IDENTITY CRISIS.

STARTED TO FEEL LIKE A LOSER.

HEAVILY INTO THE PARTY SCENE

AND ALCOHOL SOOTHED HIS BRUISED

EGO.

ALL THE STRESS WENT AWAY.

I HAD A GOOD FEELING.

BY THE SPRING HE ADDED

OXYCODONE TO HELP WITH YEARS OF

FOOTBALL INJURIES.

I LIKED IT.

I KNEW FOOTBALL WAS BRINGING A

LOT OF PAIN INTO MY LIFE.

ONE DAY I DIDN'T WANT TO PLAY

FOOTBALL.

GAVE UP MY FULL RIDE.

BACK HOME ALTON FAKED AN

INJURY TO MAINTAIN A SUPPLY OF

PAIN MEDS.

WHEN I QUIT THERE WAS A BIG

VOID THAT NEEDED TO BE FILLED.

I WOULD GO TO THE CLINIC EVERY

28 DAYS TO GET 360 PILL AS

MONOAND BECAME A DRUG ADDICT.

HE GOT WORST AND SAW A FRIEND

IN MICHIGAN HOPING THE CHANGE

WOULD HELP.

DIDN'T HAVE A DIRECTION.

DIDN'T SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END

OF THE TUNNEL.

DRUGS EFFECTED HIS THINKING.

ONE MORNING WHILE WONDERING THE

STREETS HE STOLE A CAR.

BRIEFLY DRIVING AROUND

AIMLESSLY, HE{END}ED UP AT A

CEMETERY.

I TAKE THE STEP ON TO THE

CEMETERY, I AM NORMAL FIRST TIME

IN FOUR DAYS.

I AM LOOKING AROUND.

ILL REALIZE I AM GOING TO BE

DEAD LIKE THESE PEOPLE IN FRONT

OF ME IF I DON'T CHANGE MY WAYS.

AT THAT MOMENT, I GOT ON MY

KNEES AND PRAY TO GOD FOR THE

FIRST TIME.

I TOLD THEM I WAS TIRED OF BEING

TIRED.

I WAS GIVING THIS TO HIM.

IT WAS A HUGE RELIEF.

I HAD SO MUCH WEIGHT ON MY

SHOULDERS AND WHERE I WAS AT.

CRYING AS I WAS GIVING THAT

PRAYER.

I FELT LIKE I WAS LIGHTER.

I RELEASED SO MUCH JUNK.

VERY FREEING.

HE LEFT THE CEMETERY AND

IMMEDIATELY ARRESTED.

WHILE IN JAIL, ALTON CONTINUED

PRAY TO GOD.

HELP ME, BE WITH ME TGUIDE

ME.

WHERE I AM AT I AM NOT IN A GOOD

PLACE.

ASSIGNED TO HIS CASE JANE

PATERSON, PUBLIC DEFENDER AND A

CHRISTIAN.

THERE WAS SOMETHING, I THINK

CHILD LIKE IN THIS GREAT BIG

BODY.

HE WAS ON MEDS.

HIS ABILITY TO KNOW KUS WAS

LOST.

HE LOOKED LOST.

HE WAS GENTLE AND HUMBLE AND

CONFUSED.

CHARGES DROPPED TO A

MISDEMEANOR, HE WAS SENT BACK TO

FLORIDA.

I AM COMPELLED TO TELL YOU, U

IF YOU NEED ADVISE, YOU MAY CALL

MY.

HE STARTED CALLING ME ONCE A

DAY, COUPLE OF TIMES A DAY.

WE WOULD TEXT.

I OPENED THE BIBLE AND

WHEREVER MY FINGER WOULD LAND, I

WOULD READ THE SCRIPT.

I WOULD TAKE A SCREEN SHOT AND

HAVE DIALOGUE OVER IT.

BEFORE LONG ALTON RETURNED TO

DRUG USE.

JANE FELT SHE NEEDED TO DO MORE.

I WOULD WAKE UP IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE NIGHT THINKING I NEEDED

TO DO SOMETHING.

SHE TALKED TO HER HUSBAND AND

DECIDED TO SEND HIM TO A REHAB

FACILITY IN ARGENTINA.

I LEARNED FOOTBALL DOESN'T

DEFINE ME.

THERE WAS THE FIRST IDEA I HAD

TO OVERCOME.

HE DIDN'T LIKE THE LIFE HE

HAD.

HE WAS WORKING HIS TAIL OFF TO

BE DIFFERENT.

STARTED REALIZING I HAVE

TALENTS, ABILITIES, PASSIONS.

IT EMPOWERED ME TO KEEP STRIVING

AND LIVING A LIFE FREE OF DRUGS.

THROUGHOUT HIS REHAB, JANE

CONTINUED TO PRAY AND DISCIPLE

ALTON THROUGH E-MAILS AND SKYPE.

I WOULD READ MY DAILY

DEVOTIONAL AND COMMITTING TO HIM

AND WHATEVER HE WANTED.

AFTER REHAB, ALTON RETURNED

TO MICHIGAN WHERE HE ATTENDED

GRAND VALLEY UNIVERSITY.

HE ALSO GOT TO PLAY FOOTBALL

AGAIN.

THIS TIME IT WASN'T WHAT HE

LIVED FOR.

FOR ME IT WAS A FRESH START

WHICH IS WHAT I WANTED.

MY IDENTITY WAS EVOLVING INTO --

I HAD A DESIRE TO SHARE MY

STORY.

I THOUGHT IT WAS WORTH SHARING.

I AM TRYING TO PREVENT KIDS FROM

MAKING THE SAME MISTAKES.

FEELING I GET IS THE GREATEST

HIGH AND GREATEST SATISFACTION I

HAVE LIVED SO FAR.

LOOKING BACK, ALTON CAN SEE

GOD'S HANDS ON HIS LIFE GUIDING

HIM AND SURROUNDING HIM WITH

SPIRITUAL SUPPORT.

IF YOU ARE IN A BAD SITUATION

CURRENTLY OR END UP IN ONE, ASK

FOR HELP.

THAT IS ONE THING I DIDN'T DO IN

THE BEGINNING, I DIDN'T ASK FOR

HELP.

GOD SAID I AM GOING TO SAVE THIS

GUY.

VERY FREEING.

GORDON: ONE OF THE GREAT KEYS

TO LIFE.

ASK FOR HELP.

REQUIRES HUMILITY.

YOU HAVE TO ADMIT, I CAN'T DO

THIS.

I CAN'T DO IT ON MY OWN, NEED

THE HELP OF FAMILY, NEED THE

HELP OF FRIENDS, I NEED THE HELP

OF GOD.

WHEN YOU GET THAT, YOU CAN'T GO

THROUGH IT ON YOUR OWN.

IT IS ONE OF THE GREAT

LIBERATING THINGS.

GOD, WILL YOU COME, WILL YOU

HELP?

WILL YOU STEER ME?

THEN AMAZING THINGS START TO

OPEN UP.

YOU REALIZE YOU NOW HAVE A LIFE

OF POSSIBILITIES.

FOR ALTON STARTED WITH A

DISAPPOINTMENT.

STAR QUARTERBACK IN HIGH SCHOOL.

GETS INTO COLLEGE, THINGS ARE

DIFFERENT.

RED SHIRTED AND STARTS DOWN A

ROAD OF HURTS, REJECTION, LEADS

HIM INTO A VERY BAD PLACE.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR HIM TO GET

OUT OF IT?

TOOK SEVERAL EVENTS, ONE

REALIZATION IN A CEMETERY.

I AM HEADED HERE QUICKER THAN I

WANT TO BE.

THAT CAUSES HIM TO TURN FIRST TO

GOD.

THEN A WHOLE SERIES OF THINGS

GOD PUT INTO MOTION WHERE HE

STARTED NUDGING SOMEONE WHO WAS

ASSIGNED HIS CASE TO REALLY GO

ABOVE AND BEYOND AND ESSENTIALLY

ADOPT HIM AS A SON.

GOD WILL DO THAT.

HE'LL BRING PEOPLE ALONGSIDE

YOU.

HE'LL GIVE THEM THE PATH TO SAY

HOW CAN I HELP?

HOW CAN I BE THERE FOR YOU?

HE WANTS TO DO THAT FOR YOU.

HE WANTS TO HELP YOU.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE?

TURN TO HIM AND SAY GOD, IF YOU

ARE THERE, IF YOU ARE REAL,

COULD YOU BE MY SAVIOR?

HUMBLE YOURSELF, ASK HIM FOR

THAT.

WHEN YOU DO, AMAZING THINGS WILL

HAPPEN.

LET'S DO THAT RIGHT NOW.

LET TODAY BE YOUR DAY.

DON'T TURN AWAY, DON'T CHANGE

THE CHANNEL.

DON'T SAY I GOT THIS.

I'LL GET TO SOME LATER POINT DO

IT NOW, REALIZE LIFE WITH HIM IS

A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN LIFE ON

YOUR OWN.

LET'S PRAY, I'LL LEAD, ALL YOU

HAVE TO IS REPEAT.

BOW YOUR HEAD, LET'S START.

JESUS, THAT'S RIGHT, SAY IT OUT

LOUD.

SAY HIS NAME.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU TODAY, AND

I WANT YOU TO BE MY SAVIOR.

I CAN'T DO THIS ON MY OWN.

AND JESUS, I HEAR THAT YOU HELP

PEOPLE.

I SEE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR

OTHERS.

THAT I WANT THAT.

I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE.

CHANGE MY INNERMOST BEING.

FORGIVE ME OF THE THINGS THAT I

HAVE DONE WRONG.

IF YOU'LL DO THIS, I WANTED TO

FOLLOW YOU ALL THE DAYS OF MY

LIFE HEAR MY PRAYER, FOR I PREY

TERRY?

TERRY: STILL AHEAD, 14 YEAR

OLD KIDNAPPED BY THE LORD

RESISTANCE ARMY AND FORCED TO

KILL.

FOUND OUT HOW HE ESCAPED AND

TERRY: WHEN ISAAC WAS JUST 14

YEARS OLD, HE WAS KIDNAPPED IN

UGANDA AND FORCED TO BECOME A

CHILD SOLDIER.

THE ATROCITIES HE WAS FORCED TO

COMMIT WERE PART OF THE ONGOING

NIGHTMARE TO SUSTAIN HIS

EVERYDAY LIFE.

[ FOREIGN SPEAKING ]

I WAS TOLD KILLING WITH A GUN IS

NOTHING IT WAS LIKE YOU HAVEN'T

KILLED.

MY INITIATION, THEY HANDED ME A

MACHETE.

IF I REFUSED, THEY WOULD KILL

ME.

ISAAC WAS ONLY 14 YEARS OLD

WHEN THE RESISTANCE ARMY CAME.

HE HID INSIDE.

WHEN HE TORCHED HIS HE RAN OUT

AND HE WAS FORCED TO BECOME A

SOLDIER.

THEY MADE ME WATCH AS THEY

STABBED A MAN TO DEATH WITH

BAYONETS.

ISAAC PUT ON THE UNIFORM.

HE AND TWO OTHER BOYS WERE TOLD

TO KILL A MAN WITH A MACHETE.

MAN SAID I AM INNOCENT.

COMMANDER SCREAMED KILL HIM.

IF WE DIDN'T, WE WOULD TAKE HIS

PLACE.

IT WAS THE WORST MOMENT OF MY

LIFE.

HE TRIED TO RUN AWAY MANY

TIME, HE WAS CAUGHT AND NEARLY

BEATEN TO DEATH.

DURING ONE BATTLE SHOT IN THE

LEG AND LATER FORCED TO KEEP

MARCHING.

I SAY ALL THE TIME, GOD GET

ME OUT OF HERE.

GET ME HOME.

KNOWING HE WOULD GET CAUGHT

AGAIN, ISAAC PLANNED ANOTHER

ESCAPE.

HE WENT TO FETCH WATER.

I HEARD ONE SAY IF WE CATCH

HIM, WE'LL CUT HIM INTO PIECES

AND TAKE HIM BACK FOR MEAT.

WE'LL SHOW EVERYONE THERE IS

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TRY TO

ESCAPE.

EVENTUALLY THE SOLDIERS GAVE

UP AND LEFT.

ISAAC COULD FINALLY GO HOME.

PEOPLE WERE AFRAID AND TOLD

THEIR CHILDREN TO STAY AWAY.

I FELT GUILTY.

AT NIGHT I WOKE UP SCREAMING AND

SHOUTING.

ISAAC WENT TO A GATHERING

HELD BY EXILE INTERNATIONAL

SUPPORTED BY CBN'S ORPHAN'S

PROMISE.

THROUGH ONE ON ONE THERAPY,

SINGING, DANCING AND DRAMA, WE

HAVE HELPED MANY WAR ORPHANS

HEAL FROM TERRIBLE TRAUMAS.

YOU HAVE BROUGHT SO MUCH BACK

INTO MY LIFE.

YOU HELPED ME, LORD, GOD.

I LEARNED NOT TO FOCUS ON THE

PAST BUT LOOK AT WHAT IS NEW.

WE HELPED PAY HIS FEES AND

ENROLLED HIM IN A CHRISTIAN

BOARDING SCHOOL WHERE HE MADE

LOTS OF FRIENDS.

MY SCHOOL UNIFORM IS ALWAYS

CLEAN AND FRESH AND SMELLS SO

NICE.

IT WAS ALWAYS DIRTY.

WHEN I PUT ON MY SCHOOL UNIFORM.

MY THOUGHTS ARE GOOD AND SO

PROUD TO WEAR IT.

WE ALSO GAVE ISAAC A BIBLE.

IT BRINGS ME SO MUCH PEACE.

WITHOUT GOD, I WOULD BE DEAD.

I KNOW THAT I AM COMPLETELY FREE

AND FORGIVEN.

I APPRECIATE ALL YOUR HELP.

YOU WILL BE BLESSED.

MY FUTURE IS BRIGHT BECAUSE OF

YOU.

TERRY: THE THINGS I LOVE

ABOUT ISAAC'S STORY,

PSYCHOLOGICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY

AND SITUATIONS LIKE THIS, YOU

WOULD WRITE SOMEONE OFF WHO HAD

BEEN THROUGH THAT AND WOUNDED

BEYOND REDEEMING, BEYOND

CHANGING WHAT HAD BEEN DESTROYED

IN THEIR SOULS.

BUT JESUS WHO IS THE REDEEMER

WHO IS THE SAVIOR OF ALL THINGS

LOST ABLE TO BRING HEALING AND

WHOLENESS.

JUST AS HE DID THIS FORRIZE YANG

-- ISAAC, HE CAN DO IT FOR YOU.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEARN MORE,

CALL OUR TOLL FREE NUMBER.

CAN'T GO TOO FAR OR BECOME TOO

DEAD FOR A RESURRECTION.

800-700-7000.

GORDON: EPHESIANS, LET ALL

BITTERNESS, ANGER, AND CLAMMER

AND EVIL SPEAKING BE PUT AWAY

WITH ALL MALICE.

BE KIND FORGIVING EVEN AS GOD IN

CHRIST FORGAVE YOU.
