The 700 Club - January 12, 2018

His father was a state governor and he was a county jail inmate. See how one son finds a new identity. Plus, the Pro-Life advocate who says there is “no choice” in abortion, because she was forced to have one. Read Transcript


Gordon: COMING

UP...THE PRO LIFE ADVOCATE

WHO SAYS THERE IS NO

CHOICE IN ABORTION.

THEY WANTED ME GONE,

AND THEY WANTED MY BABY

GONE.

Gordon: BECAUSE SHE

WAS FORCED TO HAVE ONE.

I HAD FOUR PEOPLE

HOLDING ME DOWN.

Gordon: HEAR HER

EXPOSE ON THE ABORTION

INDUSTRY.

> THEN...HIS FATHER WAS

A STATE GOVERNOR AND HE

WAS A COUNTY JAIL INMATE.

THIS WAS THE END OF THE

LINE FOR ME.

Gordon: HOW HE FOUND

HIS TRUE IDENTITY...

THOSE WORDS CAME OFF OF

THAT PAGE AND SEARED INTO

MY HEART.

Gordon: ...ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE DEADLY PALESTINIAN

PRACTICE CALLED "PAY TO

SLAY" IS IN THE NEWS ONCE

AGAIN AFTER THE BRUTAL

KILLING OF AN FATHER OF

SIX.

Terry: BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU PRAISED THE

UNITED NATIONS AMBASSADOR

TO ISRAEL AFTER HE SAID

THAT THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY POLICY OF PAYING

TERRORISTS IS THE REASON

THERE IS NO PEACE BETWEEN

ISRAEL AND THE

PALESTINIANS.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

THAT STORY FROM JERUSALEM.

Chris: NEARLY $3,000,

THAT'S WHAT PALESTINIAN

KILLERS OF AN ISRAELI

RABBI WILL LIKELY RECEIVE

FROM THEIR GOVERNMENT

UNDER WHAT IS KNOWN AS

"PAY TO SLAY."

35-YEAR-OLD RABBI ROS

SHABAK DIED DURING A

DRIVE-BY SHOOTING NEAR HIS

HOME.

THE TERROR ATTACK DREW

QUICK CONDEMNATION FROM AN

ISRAELI AMBASSADOR, WHO

TWEETED, "AN ISRAELI

FATHER OF SIX WAS KILLED

BY HAMAS.

AND HAMAS PRAISED THE

KILLERS, AND THEY WILL PAY

THEM FINANCIAL REWARDS.

LOOK NO FURTHER AS TO WHY

THERE IS NO PEACE."

I WANT TO CONGRATULATE

AMBASSADOR FRIEDMAN, WHO

TWEETED THE TRUTH,

UNVARNISHED,

STRAIGHTFORWARD.

THE IMPORTANT THING IS

THAT ABBAS' GOVERNMENT IS

SUPPORTING THE KIND OF

MURDERERS THAT MURDERED

THE FATHER OF SIX.

Chris: AND CONGRESS

IS TARGETING THE POLICY

WITH THE "TAYLOR FORCE

ACT."

IT WOULD WITHHOLD U.S. TAX

DOLLARS FROM THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY

UNLESS IT STOPS PAYING

THOSE WHO KILL ISRAELIS.

THOSE PEOPLE IN OUR

JAILS GET $355 MILLION A

YEAR, THEY AND THEIR

FAMILIES, FROM THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY.

THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS

UNTENABLE.

Chris: ACCORDING TO

FIGURES RELEASED, THE

RABBI'S KILLERS WILL

LIKELY RECEIVE A SALARY

FIVE TIMES THE AVERAGE

PALESTINIAN WAGE FOR THE

REST OF THEIR LIVES.

THE RECORDS SHOW THE MORE

SERIOUS THE CRIME, THE

HIGHER THE PAY.

FOR EXAMPLE, A TERRORIST

SENTENCED TO THREE TO FIVE

YEARS RECEIVES $580 A

MONTH.

FOR A SENTENCE CARRYING 20

TO 35 YEARS IN PRISON, THE

MONTHLY PAY GROWS TO

ALMOST $3,000.

AND THERE ARE ALSO BONUSES

RANGING FROM $87 TO $145

FOR AN ISRAELI ATTACK.

FUNDING MURDER DOESN'T

EXACTLY COMMENCE PEACE.

KILL AN ISRAELI AND GET

RICH.

WHAT KIND OF MESSAGE DOES

THAT SEND TO

IMPRESSIONABLE PALESTINIAN

CHILDREN?

Chris: AND PRESIDENT

TRUMP THREATENED TO CUT

FUNDING TO ANOTHER

INSTITUTION, THE UNITED

NATIONS RELIEF AND WORKS

AGENCY, OR UNRA.

IT IS NOT A QUESTION OF

DEFUNDING UNRA, BUT A

QUESTION OF REPLACING IT,

AFTER 70 YEARS, WITH AN

AGENCY THAT WILL ACTUALLY

ADDRESS THE REAL NEEDS OF

REAL REFUGEES.

Chris: SINCE THERE IS

AN OVERALL U.N. EFFORT,

NETANYAHU SEES NOW REASON

FOR PALESTINIANS TO

ACHIEVE INDIVIDUAL

ATTENTION.

IT WILL HAVE POSITIVE

EFFECTS BECAUSE THE

PERPETUATION OF THE

BRINGING THE DESCENDENTS

BACK TO JAFFA WILL SUSTAIN

IT.

Gordon: THERE IS THE

TRUTH OF WHAT IS REALLY

HAPPENING AND WHY THERE IS

NO PEACE IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

WHEN YOU ARE PAYING PEOPLE

THE TO REMAIN IN REFUGEES

STATUS, AND IT'S NOW OVER

FIVE MILLION THAT ARE

QUALIFIED TO RECEIVE

REFUGEE AID, UNRA HAS OVER

30,000 EMPLOYEES.

AND WHO IS PAYING THE

SALARY?

YOU AND ME.

IT IS PART OF OUR TAX

DOLLARS.

THE UNITED STATES FUNDS

FULLY ONE-THIRD OF THE

BUDGET OF UNRA.

BUT RIGHT NOW, LET'S

REALLY FOCUS IN ON THIS

"PAY TO SLAY" PROGRAM

BECAUSE IT IS $350 MILLION

A YEAR FROM THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY'S

BUDGET, AND GUESS WHO IS

PAYING FOR THAT?

YOU AND ME.

WE ARE FUNDING THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY,

THAT LEVEL, THAT MONEY, IS

COMING OUT OF OUR POCKETS.

AND WE'RE ENCOURAGING

THROUGH THE PAYMENTS TO

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY,

WE'RE ENCOURAGING MURDER

ON THE STREETS OF ISRAEL.

AND IT GOES FAR MORE THAN

JUST THE PAYMENTS.

THEY CELEBRATE THESE

PEOPLE.

THEY NAME TOWN SQUARES AND

CITY STREETS IN RAMALLAH

AFTER THEM.

THEY NAME SOCCER STADIUMS

AND SOCCER TEAMS AFTER

THEM.

THERE IS A WHOLE

GLORIFICATION OF THE

MARTYR, OF THE TERRORIST,

OF THE MURDERER.

AND IT IS FAR MORE THAN

MONEY.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO WHY

THERE IS NO PEACE HERE,

WHY THERE NEVER SEEMS TO

BE ANY AGREEMENT, IT IS

BECAUSE FOR 70 YEARS THEY

HAVE HELD ON TO WE WANT TO

DRIVE ISRAEL INTO THE SEA.

WE DON'T WANT A TWO-STATE

SOLUTION.

AND TO SAY OTHERWISE IS

DENYING THE FACTS OF WHAT

IS REALLY GOING ON ON THE

GROUND.

> NOW, WE'VE GOT

SOMETHING FOR YOU -- THE

"PAY TO SLAY" PROGRAM,

CONGRESS HAS ACTEDED

ALREADY THROUGACTED ALREADYTHROUGH THE "TA YLOR FORCE

ACT."

AND THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES HAS

ALREADY PASSED IT.

AND WE NEED TO GET IT

THROUGH THE SENATE.

THEY'RE TRYING TO TACK IT

ON TO SPENDING BILLS.

IT SHOULDN'T BE TACKED ON

TO SPENDING BILLS.

IT SHOULD BE AN UP AND

DOWN VOTE ON THE "TAYLOR

FORCE ACT."

WE'VE GOT A NUMBER FOR

YOU.

THIS IS THE CAPITOL SWITCH

BOARD 202-224-3121.

I WANT YOU TO CALL THAT

NUMBER AND ASK FOR YOUR

SENATORS.

AND LET YOUR VOICE ARE

HEARD THAT YOU SUPPORT THE

"TAYLOR FORCE ACT," AND

YOU WANT TO SEE IT PASSED

AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

THERE SHOULD BE NO

PARTISANSHIP ON THIS.

THIS NEEDS TO BE A

BIPARTISAN EFFORT.

WE NEED TO STOP TERRORISM

IN THE MIDDLE EAST, AND

YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT.

RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, WE

DELIVERED SOME PEOPLE WHO

SIGNED A PETITION TO PASS

IT TO THE SENATE.

AND THERE WAS OVER 20,000

NAMES, AND THERE ARE NOW

OVER 25,000 NAMES.

SO IF YOU WANT TO SIGN

YOUR NAME TO THAT

PETITION, WE'LL MAKE SURE

THAT IT GETS TO THE

SENATE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US.

OR YOU CAN GO TO

cbnnews.com AND SIGN THE

ONLINE PETITION.

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD.

WE'VE GOT TO GET THIS ACT

PASSED, AND PASSED SOON.

> IN OTHER NEWS,

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS BACK IN

THE HEADLINES.

HE HAS RESPONDED TO THE

CONTROVERSY OVER HIS

REMARKS ABOUT OTHER

COUNTRIES.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BREWER BUREAU

IN WASHINGTON.

John: IN A TWEET

EARLIER TODAY, THE

PRESIDENT SEEMED TO DENY A

STATEMENT THAT WAS

ATTRIBUTED TO HIM.

THE CONTROVERSY CAME AS

THE PRESIDENT TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION AND

CONGRESS TRY TO HAMMER OUT

A DEAL ON IMMIGRATION TO

PREVENT A GOVERNMENT

SHUTDOWN, WHICH, AS JENNA

BROWDER EXPLAINS, COULD

HAPPEN A WEEK FROM TODAY.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE IS DEALING WITH

FALLOUT AFTER DETAILS OF A

PRIVATE MEETING BETWEEN

THE PRESIDENT AND SEVERAL

SENATORS LEAKED TO THE

MEDIA.

WHEN PRESENTED WITH AN

IMMIGRATION DEAL THAT

INCLUDED RESTORING

PROTECTIONING FOR

IMMIGRANTS FROM HAITI AND

SOME AFRICAN COUNTRIES,

ACCORDING TO THE PEOPLE

INSIDE THE ROOM, THE

PRESIDENT ASKED: "WHY ARE

WE HAVING ALL OF THESE

PEOPLE FROM BLANK HOLE

COUNTRIES COMING HERE?"

IT DREW IMMEDIATE

ACCUSATION OF RACISM FROM

DEMOCRATS.

THIS REMARK BY THE

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES SMACKS OF BLATENT

RACISM, MASQUERADING

POORLY AS IMMIGRATION

POLICY.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE DIDN'T DENY THE

PRESIDENT'S REMARK BUT

ISSUED A STATEMENT SAY,

QUOTE, "CERTAIN WASHINGTON

POLITICIANS CHOOSE TO

FIGHT FOR FOREIGN

COUNTRIES, BUT PRESIDENT

TRUMP WILL ALWAYS FIGHT

FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE."

> THE PRESIDENT

CLARIFIED HIS REMARKS ON

FRIDAY TWEETING, QUOTE,

"THE LANGUAGE USED BY ME

AT THE DACA MEETING WAS

TOUGH, BUT THIS WAS NOT

THE LANGUAGE USED.

WHAT WAS TOUGH WAUSED."

> AND NANCY PELOSI ALSO

TAKING HEAT AFTER THIS

REMARK ON THE THE LEGISLATORS

WORKING ON THE IMMIGRATION

DEAL.

THE FIVE WHITE GUYS, I

CALL THEM.

ARE YOU GOING TO OPEN A

HAMBURGER STAND NEXT, OR

WHAT?

Reporter: ONE PUSHED

BACK SAYING IN A STATEMENT

TO POLTICO: THAT COMMENT

IS OFFENSIVE.

I AM COMMITTED TO

WELCOMING DREAMERS.

I WILL WELCOME ANYONE TO

THE TABLE WHO WANTS TO GET

THIS DONE."

CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS

NEED VOTES FROM DEMOCRATS

TO KEEP THE GOVERNMENT

OPEN, AND SEVERAL

DEMOCRATS ARE THREATENING

TO WITHHOLD THEIR VOTES IF

THEY CAN'T REACH AN

IMMIGRATION DEAL.

> IN WASHINGTON, JENNA

BROWDER, CBN NEWS.

John: VICTIMS OF

HUMAN TRAFFICKING ARE

SPEAKING OUT HERE IN

WASHINGTON, CALLING ON

CONGRESS TO PASS

LEGISLATION THEY SAY WOULD

DISRUPT THE GROWING ONLINE

SEX TRAFFICKING INDUSTRY.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US THAT STORY.

Reporter: WHILE

PROSTITUTION IS ILLEGAL IN

MOST OF THE COUNTRY, AND

STRICTLY REGULATED IN

NEVADA, THERE IS NOTHING

THAT PROHIBITS THE

INTERNET FROM ADVERTISING

ABOUT IT.

MORE THAN 60 SENATORS ARE

WORKING TO CLOSE THIS

LEGAL LOOPHOLE AND BRING

SURVIVORS THEIR DAY IN

COURT.

THE MORE WE DUG INTO

IT, THE MORE WE REALIZED

THERE WAS A FEDERAL LAW

THAT PROTECTED THESE

WEBSITES FROM THE KIND OF

PROSECUTION YOU WOULD

NORMALLY EXPECT, AND THE

KIND OF COURT CASES THAT

THE VICTIMS WOULD NORMALLY

BE ABLE TO BRING.

Reporter: THE "STOP

ENABLING SEX TRAFFICKERS

ACT SUBSCRIBER," WOULD PREVENT THEM

FROM ESCAPING PROSECUTION.

LAUREN LEFT HER JOB WHEN

SHE SAW THE SHIFT TO

ONLINE TRAFFICKING AND A

SHORTAGE OF LAWS

MONITORING THE NEW

MARKETPLACE.

I GUESS FOR THE LAST

SIX, SIX AND A HALF YEARS,

I'VE BEEN YELLING AT THE

COMPUTER GEN SCREEN SAYING,

HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE, HOW

IS THIS LEGAL?

Reporter: SHE AS

PASSING IT WILL HELP

PEOPLE IN THEIR LEGAL

BATTLES AGAINST WEBSITES

LIKE BACKPAGE.COM.

THESE WEBSITES ARE

EXPLOITING KIDS, AND IT

GIVES SURVIVORS THE AVENUE

TO HOLD THESE WEBSITES

ACCOUNTABLE.

Reporter: THE HOUSE

PASSED A SIMILAR BILL IN

NOVEMBER.

BUT CRITICS, LIKE SENATOR

PORTMAN, SAYS IT DOES MORE

HARM THAN GOOD BY

PROTECTING TECH COMPANIES

OVER VICTIMS.

WHEN PEOPLE UNDERSTAND

WHAT WE'RE DOING, AND HOW

NARROW THIS LEGISLATION

IS -- IT IS NOT MEANT TO

INTERFERE WITH THE FREEDOM

OF THE INTERNET.

I THINK JUST THE OPPOSITE.

Reporter: THE SENATE

COULD VOTE ON THE BILL BY

THE END OF THE MONTH.

SENATOR PORTMAN HOPES WHAT

HAPPENS THE BILL PASSES

THE SENATE, HIS COLLEAGUES

IN THE HOUSE WILL CONSIDER

STRENGTHENING THEIR

VERSION OF THE

LEGISLATION.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN NEWS.

John: THANKS, ABBEY.

> CHILDREN IN JAPAN WERE

THE FIRST TO VIEW CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK" WHEN IT WAS

FIRST RELEASED BACK IN

1981.

EVENTUALLY, EIGHT MILLION

PEOPLE A NIGHT WATCHED THE

SHOW ON TELEVISION.

THE JAPANESE STOPPED THE

REGULAR BROADCAST IN THE

1980s, BUT "SUPERBOOK"

IS BACK.

LUCILLE TALUSAN BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

*

Reporter: PEOPLE

ATTENDING THE CHRISTMAS

EVE SERVICE IS A TRADITION

FOR CHRISTIANS IN JAPAN.

AND AFTERWARDS, IN MOST

JAPANESE CHURCHES,

EVERYONE STAYS AND ENJOYS

A MEAL TOGETHER, A VERY

IMPORTANT TIME OF

FELLOWSHIP THAT THEY

WOULDN'T MISS, ESPECIALLY

SINCE MANY CHURCH MEMBERS

ARE THE ONLY CHRISTIANS IN

THEIR FAMILY.

BUT FOR THE TOMEI FAMILY,

THIS PAST CHRISTMAS EVE

WAS EXTRA SPECIAL.

THIS MAN SHARED HOW

EXCITED HE WAS, BECAUSE

AFTER MORE THAN TWO

DECADES, HE COULD AGAIN

WATCH "SUPERBOOK," THIS

TIME WITH HIS WIFE AND

CHILDREN.

IT WAS IN 1981 WHEN CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK" FIRST AIRED ON

PRIME TIME TELEVISION IN

JAPANS AS PART OF AN

OUTREACH.

I WATCHED "SUPERBOOK"

WHEN I WAS A KID, ALONG

WITH ALL OF THE OTHER

KIDS.

> AND WE WOULD TALK

ABOUT IT IN SCHOOL THE

NEXT DAY.

IT WAS REALLY AMAZING AT

THAT TIME.

ALL OF THE KIDS KNEW ABOUT

THE BIBLE BECAUSE OF THAT

BROADCAST.

I THINK IT IS REALLY GREAT

THAT IT IS ON TELEVISION

AGAIN.

Reporter: THE TOMEI

FAMILY INVITED THREE OTHER

KIDS TO THEIR HOME, WHO,

TOGETHER WITH THEIR

CHILDREN, WATCHED THE

FIRST EPISODE OF

"SUPERBOOK" TRANSLATED IN

JAPANESE.

ALL THEIR ATTENTION WAS

FOCUSED ON THE STORY OF

THE FIRST CHRISTMAS.

THE TOMEI CHILDREN ARE

HAPPY THEIR FRIENDS GOT TO

WATCH "SUPERBOOK."

IT WAS THE FIRST TIME THEY

LEARNED THE STORY OF

CHRISTMAS, AND THE FIRST

TIME THEIR FRIENDS HEARD

THE NAME OF JESUS.

WE ARE CHRISTIAN, BUT I

AM CONCERNED BECAUSE WHAT

THE BIBLE TEACHES IS

DIFFERENT FROM WHAT IS

BEING TAUGHT IN SCHOOL.

OUR CHILDREN ARE REQUIRED

TO JOIN FESTIVALS WHERE

THERE ARE, QUOTE, "DANCES

THAT WORK ON THE SPIRITS."

I'M GLAD THROUGH

"SUPERBOOK," OUR CHILDREN

AND THEIR FRIENDS CAN

LEARN ABOUT STORIES IN THE

BIBLE AND CHRISTIAN

VALUES.

Reporter: AFTER

WATCHING THE EPISODE, THE

KIDS EAGLE ANSWERED A QUIZ

ABOUT THE "SUPERBOOK"

STORY.

WHEN ASKED ABOUT HOW THEY

FEEL ABOUT THE PROGRAM...

I REALLY LIKE IT A LOT.

Reporter: LUCILLE

TALUSAN, CBN NEWS.

John: GORDON, THE

SERIES IS MAKING AN IMPACT

ACROSS GENERATIONS.

Gordon: IT IS

HEART-WARMING FOR ME TO

SEE THAT STORY.

IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME.

"SUPERBOOK" WAS ORIGINALLY

DEVELOPED FOR JAPAN BACK

IN THE EARLY 1980sS AS

PARs ASPART OF A CAMPAIGN TO MAKE

THE BIBLE POPULAR.

IT WAS PART OF -- WE

PARTNERED WITH THEM, AND

THEY DID THE BIBLE

PUBLISHING, AND IT WORKED.

THE BIBLE BECAME A

BEST-SELLING BOOK, AND THE

CHILDREN KNEW THE STORIES.

AND THE UNIQUE THING IN

JAPAN IS WATCHING CARTOONS

IS A FAMILY THING.

EVERYBODY GETS TOGETHER TO

WATCH.

TO SEE IT BACK AGAIN IN

JAPAN, OPENING DOORS, IT

IS WONDERFUL WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

AND CHILDREN WILL RESPOND.

PEOPLE RESPOND TO THE

WORDS OF THE BIBLE.

THEY'RE LIVING; THEY'RE

POWERFUL.

AND WHEN CHARACTERS ARE

TALKING IN "SUPERBOOK,"

THEY'RE TALKING VERSES

DIRECTLY FROM THE BIBLE.

IT IS WONDERFUL WHATS HAS WHAT HAS

HAPPENED.

LAST YEAR, I THINK THE

SURVEYS ARE SHOWING OVER

180 MILLION VIEWERS.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY

PHENOMENAL.

AND WE WANT TO SEE IT

GROWS EVEN MORE.

Terry: IT IS GREAT TO

SEE IT RETURN TO JAPAN.

AND IT IS ALSO AMAZING HOW

MANY COUNTRIES IT IS RIGHT

NOW, TRANSLATED INTO THE

LANGUAGE OF THE PEOPLE.

HOW MANY LANGUAGES?

Gordon: WE HAVE 43

RIGHT NOW, AND HOPEFULLY

55 BY THE END OF THE YEAR,

AND THEN WE WANT TO TAKE

IT TO 500.

LET'S MAKE AN IMPACT.

Terry: IT ALREADY IS.

CONGRATULATIONS.

THAT'S GREAT.

> UP NEXT, A WOMAN

RECALLS THE DAY SHE WAS

FORCED TO HAVE AN

ABORTION.

I HAD FOUR PEOPLE

HOLDING ME DOWN.

ONE, A NURSE, AND A STAFF

MEMBER ON EACH ARM, AND

THE DOCTOR ABORTED MY

CHILD, AND I'M SCREAMING.

THAT'S NOT CHOICE.

Terry: SEE HOW SHE IS

NOW USING HER TRAUMA TO

HELP SAVE LIVES, AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: THE WOMAN IN

OUR NEXT STORY IS NOW A

TOP PRO-LIFE LEADER.

BUT WHEN SHE WAS A

PREGNANT TEENAGER, SHE

THOUGHT ABORTION WAS HER

ONLY OPTION, UNTIL SHE

SUFFERED THROUGH A

TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE ON THE

ABORTION TABLE.

PAUL STRAND BRINGS US HER

STORY.

Reporter: CATHERINE

GLEN FOSTER IS A WIFE AND

MOM WHO LEADS "AMERICANS

UNITED FOR LIFE," ONE OF

THE PREMIER ORGANIZATIONS

FIGHTING ABORTION.

MILLIONS OF BABIES HAVE

BEEN SAVED BY OUR WORK.

Reporter: FOR HER,

THIS WORK IN POLITICAL, IT

IS PERSONAL.

BECAUSE SHE SUFFERED A

HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE AT AN

ABORTION CLINIC ALMOST TWO

DECADES AGO.

WHEN I WAS 19 YEARS

OLD, I HAD AN UNINTENDED

PREGNANCY.

I FELT INCREDIBLY ALONE.

I THOUGHT IT REALLY WAS --

IT WAS JUST ME TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO AND

SALVAGE MY LIFE.

Reporter: THE THEME

FOR THIS YEAR'S "MARCH FOR

LIFE" ON JANUARY 19th IS

"LOVE SAVES LIVES."

MAYBE IF SOMEONE REALLY

LOVED AND STOOD WITH

CATHERINE COULD PREVENT

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT.

BUT NO SUCH PERSON CAME.

I WENT ONLINE AND FOUND

THE CHEAPEST ABORTION

CENTER I COULD AND MADE AN

APPOINTMENT FOR THAT

SATURDAY BECAUSE I KNEW I

COULDN'T WAIT ANY LONGER.

I WAS ALREADY BONDING.

I WENT INTO THAT CENTER

BECAUSE I THOUGHT I HAD NO

CHOICE.

I THOUGHT I HAD NO OTHER

OPTION.

AND I WAS TERRIFIED.

WHAT I FOUND THERE WAS

COERCION, LACK OF

INFORMATION, AT TIMES

OUT-RIGHT LIES, AT TIMES

FORCE.

Reporter: AS THE

ABORTION WAS ABOUT TO

BEGIN...

I ASKED TO GET UP.

I SAID, PLEASE LET ME UP.

LET ME OFF THIS TABLE, OUT

OF THIS ROOM.

I DON'T WANT THIS ANYMORE.

Reporter: FOSTER

FIRST DESCRIBED THE

SHOCKING EXPERIENCE THAT

FOLLOWED TO CBN NEWS A

YEAR AGO AT A PROTEST

OUTSIDE A PLANNED

PARENTHOOD BUILDING.

I SAID, NO, I CAN'T DO

THIS.

THIS IS WRONG.

I FEEL REALLY BAD ABOUT

THIS.

LET ME GO.

YOU CAN KEEP THE MONEY.

THEY SHOUTED FOR MORE

PEOPLE.

AND I HAD FOUR PEOPLE

HOLDING ME DOWN.

ONE, A NURSE, AND A STAFF

MEMBER ON EACH ARM, AND

THE DOCTOR ABORTED MY

CHILD.

I'M SCREAMING.

THAT IS NOT CHOICE.

IT WAS NOT PRO-WOMAN OR

PRO-ME.

THEY DIDN'T LISTEN TO ME.

THEY DIDN'T RESPECT MY

OPINION.

THEY WANTED ME GONE AND MY

BABY GONE.

Reporter: NOW IN THE

PRESENT, CATHERINE CAN

STILL FEEL THE GRIEF AND

GUILT OF THAT DAY SO MANY

YEARS AGO.

IN THE END, I WAS LEFT

ALONE, IN THE RECOVERY,

WISHING I COULD TURN BACK

TIME, AND GO AN HOUR, A

WEEK, A MONTH BACK IN TIME

AND REDO EVERYTHING.

IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME TO

RECOVER PHYSICALLY, AND

THEN MENTALLY,

EMOTIONALLY, AND

SPIRITUALLY.

IT WAS DEVASTATING.

Reporter: BUT

CATHERINE PUSHED ON,

FINISHED COLLEGE AND THEN

LAW SCHOOL.

SHE WED AND HAD KIDS.

BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENED

TO HER AT THAT CLINIC, SHE

TOOK UP PRO-LIFE LEGAL

WORK.

WHERE WE WORK, AND THE

LEGISLATURE AND THE

COURTS, TO MAKE SURE OTHER

WOMEN DON'T HAVE TO GO

THROUGH WHAT I WENT

THROUGH.

Reporter: SHE IS

PARTICULARLY PROUD OF ONE

STATE LAW CHAMPIONED BY

HER GROUP.

THE STATE OF WYOMING,

JUST LAST SESSION, PASSED

ITS FIRST PRO-LIFE LAW IN

28 YEARS, AND THAT LAW IS

AN ULTRASOUND REQUIREMENT.

Reporter: MEANING IF

AN ABORTION CENTER RECORDS

AN ULTRASOUND, AND SHE

ASKS TO SEE IT, SHE MUST

BE SHOWN THE IMAGE.

WHICH DIDN'T HAPPEN FOR

CATHERINE.

I ASKED TO SEE MY

CHILD'S ULTRASOUND, AND I

ASKED AND I WAS REFUSED.

THEY SAID NO.

THAT'S ALWAYS HAUNTED ME.

I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED AND

WISHED AGAIN THAT I COULD

GO BACK.

AND KNOWING THAT WOMEN IN

WYOMING NOW HAVE THAT

RIGHT IS SO IMPACTFUL.

Reporter: PAUL

STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Gordon: WELL, THERE

IS A STORY YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO SEE ANYWHERE

ELSE.

BUT THERE IS ANOTHER SIDE

TO THE WHOLE ABORTION

INDUSTRY.

AND WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE

IT IS AN INDUSTRY.

IT IS A MONEY-MAKING

VENTURE.

AND SOME OF THE HORRIFIC

THINGS THAT HAVE COME OUT

FROM THESE ABORTION

CLINICS, THE STORIES, THE

SELLING OF BABY PARTS --

WHEN AS A COUNTRY WILL WE

WAKE UP TO THAT?

AND WAKE UP THAT THEY NEED

REGULATION?

AND WHEN CAN WE FINALLY

SAY, AS A CULTURE, WE

VALUE LIFE, AND EACH

INDIVIDUAL LIFE IS

PRECIOUS AND WORTH ALL OF

ETERNITY?

THAT'S THE POINT WE NEED

TO GET TO.

AND WE NEED TO PRAY THAT

ONE IN.

THIS IS A SPIRITUAL

BATTLE, AND WE NEED TO

PRAY FOR IT, AND WE NEED

TO BE ACTIVE POLITICALLY

AND DO WHAT WE CAN.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, THE

SON OF A KENTUCKY GOVERNOR

REMEMBERS THE PHONE CALL

FROM HIS FATHER THAT

FOREVER CHANGED HIS LIFE.

HE TOLD ME THAT HE HAD

SOME TROUBLE, AND THAT I

NEEDED TO COME TO THE

HOUSE RIGHT AWAY.

I REALIZED THAT OUR LIVES

WERE ABOUT TO CHANGE IN A

VERY BAD WAY.

Terry: FIND OUT WHAT

THAT "TROUBLE" WAS, AND

THE IMPACT IT MADE ON HIS

ENTIRE FAMILY, AFTER THIS.

Gordon: WELL, ANDREW

WILKINSON GREW UP IN A

FAMILY OF WEALTH AND

PRIVILEGE AS THE SON OF A

KENTUCKY GOVERNOR.

SO WHEN HIS FATHER FELL

FROM GRACE, LIFE AS ANDREW

KNEW IT ABRUPTLY ENDED,

AND HE BEGAN A STEADY

SLIDE TOWARDS ALL-OUT

SELF-DESTRUCTION.

I GOT A TELEPHONE CALL

FROM MY FATHER.

I NEVER HEARD HIS VOICE

THE WAY HE SPOKE TO ME

THAT DAY.

HE TOLD ME THAT HE HAD

SOME TROUBLE.

AND I HAD NEVER HEARD HIM

SAY THOSE WORDS, EITHER.

AND THAT I NEEDED TO COME

TO THE HOUSE RIGHT AWAY.

Reporter: ANDREW'S

FATHER, WALLACE WILKINSON,

GREW HIS COMPANY INTO A

MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR

BUSINESS.

HE MADE A RAN FOR, AND WAS

ELECTED, GOVERNOR OF

KENTUCKY.

BUT HE RETURNED TO FIND

HIS COMPANY IN DISARRAY,

PARTLY DUE TO QUESTIONABLE

PARTNERSHIPS, WHICH

BROUGHT FINANCIAL RUIN TO

HIS COMPANY AND HIS

FAMILY.

MY DAD EXPLAINED TO US

HE WAS BEING FORCED INTO

INVOLUNTARY BANKRUPTCY,

AND HIS DEATH TOTALLED

ABOUT $480 MILLION.

AND THIS WAS POTENTIALLY

CATASTROPHIC.

I REALIZED THAT OUR LIVES

WERE ABOUT TO CHANGE IN A

VERY BAD WAY.

Reporter: ANDREW AND

HIS BROTHER HAD LIVED

LIVES OF WEALTH AND

PRIVILEGE FOR MOST OF

THEIR CHILD HOODS.

THE COUPLE HAD RAISED

THEIR BOYS IN CHURCH, BUT

ANDREW SAYS HE NEVER KNEW

CHRIST AND BEGAN TO ABUSE

ALCOHOL AND DRUGS AT AN

EARLY AGE.

I DID NOT UNDERSTAND

JESUS CHRIST AS GOD.

I DID NOT UNDERSTAND HIM

AS MAN.

I DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE

PLAN OF SALVATION.

I WAS SPOILED.

MY BROTHER WAS SPOILED AS

WELL.

I WAS IMMATURE.

I WAS ARROGANT.

I WAS INSECURE.

MY IDENTITY AND MY LIFE

WERE COMPLETELY IMMERSED

IN MATERIAL POSSESSIONS.

AND MY IDENTITY WAS IN

THINGS THAT HAD NO

FOUNDATION.

Reporter: IN 2002,

AFTER FIGHTING A LONG

BATTLE WITH CANCER,

ANDREW'S FATHER SUFFERED A

STROKE, AND ONE DAY LATER

HE WAS GONE.

MY FATHER PASSED AWAY

ABOUT A YEAR INTO THE

BANKRUPTCY.

AND MY MOTHER AND MY

BROTHER AND I WERE, FOR

LACK OF A BETTER WORD,

CAUGHT IN THE HEADLIGHTS,

YOU KNOW, HOLDING THE BAG.

Reporter: WHILE HIS

MOTHER DEALT WITH THE

FALLOUT FROM THE

BANKRUPTCY, ANDREW MOVED

TO THE DEBT-FRIENDLY STATE

OF FLORIDA TO PROTECT WHAT

FEW ASSETS WERE LEFT FROM

HIS FATHER'S ESTATE.

WHEN I CAME TO FLORIDA,

I STARTED TO TURN TO THE

THINGS THAT I KNEW.

WHAT DID I KNOW?

I KNEW DRUGS AND I KNEW

ALCOHOL.

OVER THE COURSE OF ABOUT

FOUR YEARS, I WENT ON A

ROAD OF ALL-OUT

SELF-DESTRUCTION.

Reporter: WITH NO

DEGREE, NO CONTACTS, AND

FEW SKILLS, LIVING ALONE

IN A STRANGE STATE, ANDREW

CONTINUED TO TURN TO

DRUGS.

IT GAVE ME THE EXCUSE

TO BE A VICTIM.

EVERY DAY WAS BEGINNING

THE SAME.

I WOKE UP LOOKING FOR THE

NEXT HIGH.

MY DAYS AND NIGHTS WERE

CENTERED AROUND ESCAPING

REALITY.

Reporter: ONE MORNING

ANDREW PULLED INTO A

CONVENIENCE STORE PARKING

LOT, AND BEGAN TO GET HIGH

ON COCAINE AND VALIUM.

I PASSED OUT.

THE MANAGER CALLED THE

CITY POLICE IN SUMPTER

COUNTY, AND THEY CAME AND

FOUND ME SLOUCHED OVER IN

THE DRIVER'S SEAT WITH SAL

VSALIVA AND FLUID DRIPPING

OUT OF MY MOUTH.

Reporter: HE WAS

ARRESTED FOR POSSESSION OF

COCAINE AND GIVEN

PROBATION.

BUT AFTER TESTS CAME BACK,

HE LANDED IN JAIL.

HE AND AN INMATE GOT INTO

A SCUFFLE.

UNFORTUNATELY FOR HIM,

THIS WAS THE END OF THE

LINE FOR ME.

MY FATHER WAS DEAD, ALL OF

MONEY WAS GONE, AND MY

MOTHER WAS HEARTBROKEN AND

DISPONDENT OVER HOW I WAS

LIVING MY LIFE.

I HAD LIED, CHEATED, AND

DECEIVED JUST ABOUT

EVERYBODY THAT I COULD,

AND HERE I WAS, THIS MAN

WAS THROWING MY BELONGINGS

OUT INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE

COMMON AREA AND INSULTING

ME LIKE THAT.

I WAS A CHILD OF WRATH.

AND IT CAME POURING OUT OF

ME.

Reporter: ANDREW BEAT

THE MAN IN HIS JAIL CELL

UNTIL THE GUARDS

INTERVENED.

HE WAS LATER BROUGHT TO

ANOTHER COUNTY WHERE HE

WOULD STAND TRIAL.

BECAUSE OF THE NUMBER OF

STOPS, THE TRIP TOOK 21

HOURS.

I WAS TRANSPORTED IN A

PAIR OF SHORTS, AND I HAD

NO SHIRT.

I WAS SHACKLED AT MY

WAIST, MY WRISTS, AND MY

ANKLES.

I WAS A PATHETIC, DEFEATED

MESS.

I JUST DIDN'T HAVE THE

POWER INSIDE OF ME TO DO

IT ON MY OWN.

THAT IS BEING CALLED

HOPELESS.

I HAD TO FACE THE TRUTH

ABOUT WHAT ANDREW HAD DONE

WITH HIS LIFE.

THE TRUTH WAS ANDREW, AT

THE HELM, HAD MADE A

DISASTER OUT OF HIS LIFE.

Reporter: IN THE BACK

OF THAT VAN, ANDREW TURNED

TO THE ONE HE HAD HEARD

ABOUT GROWING UP IN

CHURCH.

I GAVE THE FIRST

SINCERE PRAYER OF MY LIFE.

AND I PRAYED TO JESUS

CHRIST.

AND HE ANSWERED MY PRAYER.

AS I SIT IN THE BACK OF

THAT VAN, I FELT

FORGIVENESS.

I FELT THE HOLY SPIRIT

COME INTO MY HEART.

AND I FELT THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST TELLING ME THERE

WAS A WAY, AND HE WAS THE

WAY, BUT I HAD TO GIVE UP.

I HAD TO SURRENDER.

I HAD TO FOCUS ON THE

FUTURE AND GOING FORWARD

IN HIS LOVE AND MERCY AND

COMPASSION.

Reporter: ANDREW WAS

SENTENCED TO ONE YEAR IN

PRISON.

WHILE THERE, HE BEGAN

STUDYING SCRIPTURE AND

SEEKING OUT SPIRITUAL

MENTORS.

WHEN I OPENED MY BIBLE

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

PRISON, THE VERY FIRST

VERSE WAS LUKE 19: 10:

"FOR THE SON OF MAN HAS

COME TO SEEK AND TO SAVE

THOSE WHO ARE LOST."

WHEN I READ THAT, THOSE

WORDS CAME OFF OF THAT

PAGE, AND THEY SEARED INTO

MY HEART.

THEY SEARED MY SPIRIT.

Reporter: HE IMMERSED

HIMSELF IN THE WORD OF

GOD, AND WAS RELEASED A

YEAR LATER.

TODAY ANDREW IS A HUSBAND

AND FATHER AND FINALLY

KNOWS WHAT IS TRULY

VALUABLE.

THIS WORD SCREAMS THAT

YOU ARE WHAT YOU HAVE.

I HAVE INFINITELY MORE

THAN I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY

LIFE.

WHEN I LOOK IN THE MIRROR,

I KNOW WHO ANDREW IS, AND

I KNOW WHAT IS IMPORTANT:

MY FAITH IN GOD, MY WIFE,

MY LITTLE GIRL, AND THE

KNOWLEDGE THAT THERE IS A

TON OF LIFE AHEAD FOR ME.

Reporter: ANDREW ALSO

HAS A MINISTRY FOR

PRISONERS, AND LOVES

SHARING HIS LIFE OF HOPE.

MY MISSION IN LIFE

GOING FORWARD IS TO SHARE,

YOU'RE NOT HOPELESS.

THERE IS A WAY.

AND NOT ONLY IS THERE A

WAY, BUT LIFE CAN COME TO

YOU MORE ABUNDANTLY THAN

EVER BEFORE.

AND IT IS THROUGH THE WAY

OF THE CROSS.

IT IS THROUGH JESUS

CHRIST.

Gordon: AND HE IS THE

WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE

LIFE.

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE THAT,

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE LIFE,

HE IS THE WAY.

> ONE OF THE THINGS

ANDREW SAID IN THAT -- I

THINK IT IS VERY

REVEALING -- HE SAID, I

HAD AN EXCUSE TO BE THE

VICTIM.

A LOT OF BAD THINGS

HAPPENED TO ANDREW, A LOT

OF THINGS THAT WERE WAY

OUTSIDE OF HIS CONTROL.

AND YOU GO FROM WEALTH AND

SECURITY TO YOU'VE GOT TO

RUN OFF TO FLORIDA BECAUSE

THEY HAVE BETTER LAWS TO

KEEP WHAT LITTLE REMAINS.

THEN YOU START SEEKING

SOME KIND OF RELEASE.

FOR ANDREW, IT CAME

THROUGH DRUGS, IT CAME

THROUGH COCAINE.

AND THEN FINALLY HE

REALIZED WHAT HE WAS

DOING.

HE WAS HAVING AN EXCUSE TO

BE A VICTIM.

AND EVERY DAY HE TAKES

THAT VICTIM MEDICINE, AND

THAT ME MEDICATES THE FEELING

FOR A FEW HOURS, BUT IT

NEVER REALLY GOES AWAY.

IF ANYTHING, IT GETS

WORSE.

AND FOR ANDREW, IT

DEFINITELY GOT WORSE.

HE WENT TO JAIL.

AND IT WAS IN THE BACK OF

A POLICE VAN THAT HE

FINALLY SAID, I NEED TO

GET RIGHT WITH GOD.

I NEED TO HAVE A SINCERE

PRAYER.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY

LIFE, A SINCERE PRAYER.

NOW, HERE IS WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHEN

YOU SEEK GOD WITH ALL OF

YOUR HEART, THEN YOU'LL

FIND HIM.

FOR ANDREW, EVERYTHING HAD

TO BE STRIPPED AWAY, HIS

MONEY, HIS LIFE, HIS

PRIVILEGE, HIS POSITION.

AND THEN THROUGH

ADDICTION, OTHER THINGS

GOT STRIPPED AWAY UNTIL

FINALLY HIS LIBERTY WAS

STRIPPED AWAY.

AND FOR HIM, HE FOUND THAT

PRAYER.

HE FOUND THAT WITH ALL OF

HIS HEART IN THE BACK OF A

VAN.

AND THAT TELLS YOU YOU CAN

NEVER BE TOO DEAD FOR A

RESURRECTION.

JESUS WILL COME TO YOU,

WHEREVER YOU ARE, IF YOU

JUST PRAY WITH ALL OF YOUR

HEART.

THAT'S ALL THAT'S NEEDED.

SOME KIND OF SIGN FROM YOU

THAT YOU'RE ALL IN, THAT

YOU'RE NOT JOKING AROUND,

YOU'RE NOT PLAYING WITH

HIM.

YOU WANT HIM AND YOU NEED

HELP.

HE DIDN'T COME TO JUDGE

US.

HE DIDN'T COME TO THROW

LIGHTNING BOLTS FROM

HEAVEN.

WHAT HE CAME TO DO IS TO

SEEK AND TO SAVE THE LOST.

AND IF THAT'S YOU, ALL YOU

HAVE TO DO IS SAY, JESUS,

I'M HERE.

COULD YOU COME FOR ME?

COULD YOU SHOW UP FOR ME?

AND IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT

RIGHT NOW -- THERE IS A

REASON YOU'RE WATCHING

THIS STORY, THERE IS A

REASON YOU'RE WATCHING

THIS TELEVISION SHOW, AND

THAT REASON IS JESUS WANTS

TO COME TO YOU.

AND TO RECEIVE HIM, ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO IS BOW YOUR

HEAD AND PRAY WITH ALL OF

YOUR HEART, AND HE'LL

COME.

SO IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT,

LET'S DO IT TOGETHER.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

CLOSE YOUR EYES, BOW YOUR

HEAD, AND REPEAT A VERY

SIMPLE PRAYER.

LET'S DO IT, AND LET'S DO

IT RIGHT NOW.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

HIS NAME, SAY IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU

TODAY, AND I WANT YOU IN

MY LIFE.

JESUS, I WANT YOU WITH ALL

OF MY HEART.

I WANT TO LEAVE ALL OF THE

THINGS THAT I'VE DONE

WRONG.

I TURN FROM THEM NOW, AND

I TURN TO YOU.

SO, JESUS, FORGIVE ME,

CLEANSE ME, SET ME FREE

FROM ALL THE THINGS THAT

GIVE ME COMPULSIONS.

SET ME FREE FROM ALL OF

THEM.

AND, JESUS, IF YOU DO THIS

FOR ME, I WANT TO FOLLOW

YOU ALL THE DAYS OF MY

LIFE.

HEAR MY PRAYER, COME INTO

MY HEART, LET ME KNOW

RIGHT NOW THAT MY PRAYER

HAS BEEN HEARD AND HAS

BEEN ANSWERED, FOR I PRAY

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I JUST ASK FOR A

BAPTISM IN YOUR LOVE.

LET THEM KNOW THAT THEY

HAVE BEEN HEARD AND HAVE

BEEN FORGIVEN.

AND CLEANSE THEM NOW FROM

ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

LET THEM KNOW THAT THEY'RE

BORN AGAIN IN YOU.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU JUST PRAYED WITH

ME, THERE IS ONE MORE

THING I WANT YOU THE TO

DO.

I WANT YOU TO MAKE A PHONE

CALL AND LET SOMEBODY

KNOW.

IT IS ONE OF THE KEYS TO

SALVATION.

IF YOU BELIEVE IN YOUR

HEART AND THEN CONFESS

WITH YOUR MOUTH, YOU SHALL

BE SAVED.

SO DO IT.

THE NUMBER IS ON THE

SCREEN: 1-800-700-7000.

WHEN YOU CALL, I'VE GOT

SOMETHING FREE FOR YOU.

THERE IS NO FINANCIAL

OBLIGATION.

IT IS OUR HONOR, OUR

PRIVILEGE TO SEND IT TO

YOU.

IT IS CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IT IS A C.D. TEACHING OF

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

HOW DO YOU LIVE THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE?

WHAT DO CHRISTIANS

BELIEVE?

WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?

IT IS ALL FREE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US, AND WE'LL SEND IT

RIGHT OUT TO YOU.

1-800-700-7000.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

MOTORCYCLIST SEES A CAR

CROSS THE SENATOR LINE.

>CENTER LINE.

I KNEW I WAS DEAD.

RIGHT ON IMPACT, I THOUGHT

THAT WAS THE END OF IT.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

MAN MIRACULOUSLY SURVIVES.

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TURNING

HIS ATTENTION TO PRISON

REFORM, AND HE IS LOOKING

TO THE FAITH COMMUNITY TO

HELP.

THE PRESIDENT INVITED THE,

QUOTE, "BEST IN THE

COUNTRY" TO THE WHITE

HOUSE TO DISCUSS A NUMBER

OF WAYS TO HELP

EX-OFFENDERS RE-ENTER

SOCIETY AS PRODUCTIVE

CITIZENS.

SAM BROWNBACK SAID, WHEN

THE FAITH COMMUNITY IS

INVOLVED, IT CUTS DOWN THE

RECIDIVISM RATE.

> "OPERATION BLESSING"

PROVIDED HELP TO A GROUP

IN HAITI.

A TEAM OF PHARMACISTS,

NURSES, AND DOCTORS

CONDUCTED A TWO-DAY

MEDICAL MISSION IN A

VILLAGE.

THEY HELPED MORE THAN 600

ADULTS AND CHILDREN WITH A

VARIETY OF ISSUES.

AND THEY PROVIDED WOUND

CARE, ANTI-PARASITE

MEDICATIONS, AND MUCH

MORE.

AND THEY BROUGHT A SAFE

WATER SOLUTION TO THE

COMMUNITY THAT WILL

GREATLY IMPROVE PUBLIC

HEALTH.

> YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE

ABOUT "OPERATION BLESSING"

BY VISITING ITS WEBSITE

AT ob.org.

GORDON AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MUCH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: ONE MOTHER

LIVING IN SOUTH THAILAND

WAS OFTEN HELPLESS TO FEED

HER STARVING FAMILY.

MANY DAYS ALL THEY HAD TO

EAT WAS WEEDS, MIXED WITH

A LITTLE BIT OF RICE.

HER MOM CALLS HER DAUGHTER

GIDI LITTLE RABBIT BECAUSE

OF THE 3-YEAR-OLD'S

FONDNESS FOR EATING

VEGETABLES.

WHAT HER DAUGHTER DOESN'T

KNOW IS THAT THOSE

VEGETABLES ARE WEEDS,

COLLECTED FROM A NEARBY

FIELD.

THEY EAT THEM WITH A

LITTLE RICE.

WHEN SHE GOES HUNGRY, I

FEEL SO HELPLESS.

MY HUSBAND CUTS GRASS AND

DOES ODD JOBS.

IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO FEED

OUR CHILDREN AND MY

ELDERLY MOTHER.

Terry: THEN GIDI'S

MOTHER HEARD ABOUT A

CHILDREN'S CENTER,

SUPPORTED BY CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE."

AT THE CENTER, THEY

GIVE MY DAUGHTER FOOD TO

EAT AND MILK TO DRINK

EVERY DAY.

SHE ALSO LEARNS MANY

THINGS AND PLAYS WITH HER

NEW FRIENDS.

Terry: ONE DAY A

STAFF MEMBER AT THE CENTER

NOTICED THAT GIDI HAD AN

EAR INFECTION.

SO WE TOOK HER, ALONG WITH

HER MOM, TO THE DOCTOR.

THEN WE PROVIDED THE

ANTIBIOTICS THE FAMILY

COULD NOT AFFORD.

FINALLY, THANKS TO THE

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" CENTER,

GIDI'S MOM CAN NOW WORK

WITH HER HUSBAND DURING

THE DAY, WHICH HAS DOUBLED

THE FAMILY'S INCOME.

NOW THEY NO LONGER GO

HUNGRY.

THANK YOU, "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," FOR CARING ABOUT

MY DAUGHTER.

Terry: YOU KNOW, WE

ARE SO BLESSED IN SO MANY

WAYS, LIVING IN THE UNITED

STATES, THAT WE SOMETIMES

FORGET HOW TRULY DESPERATE

LIFE CAN BE FOR PEOPLE IN

OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD.

HERE IS THE THING: WE CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR

LIVES WITHOUT EVER LEAVING

OUR HOMES, WITHOUT EVER

LEAVING OUR COUNTRY.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB" TODAY,

BECAUSE YOU CAN BE A PART

OF A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO

ARE OUT TO TOUCH THE NEEDS

OF PEOPLE WITH THE LOVE OF

JESUS CHRIST.

IN PRACTICAL WAYS, IN VERY

PRACTICAL WAYS, LIKE YOU

JUST SAW IN GIDI'S FAMILY.

HOW DO YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB"?

1-800-700-7000.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, MAKES YOU A "700

CLUB" MEMBER.

SO WILL YOU CALL AND DO

THAT?

WHEN YOU CALL, WILL YOU DO

IT USING PLEDGE EXPRESS.

SAY I'D LIKE TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB" AND I'D LIKE TO

DO IT USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

IT MEANS THE BANK DOES ALL

OF THE WORK.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO

ANYTHING.

BUT IT DOES SAVE US SOME

ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS, SO

WE CAN PUT MORE OF YOUR

GIFT INTO THE LIVES OF

SO THANK YOU FOR CARING

GORDON?

Gordon: UP NEXT, A

MOTORCYCLE RIDER IS HIT BY

A CAR.

AFTER I WAS ON THE

GROUND FOR A SHORT TIME, I

DISTINCTIVELY FELT THREE

HANDS ON MY BACK.

AND THEY ASKED IF THEY

COULD PRAY FOR ME.

AND I TURNED AROUND AND

THERE WAS NO ONE THERE.

Gordon: SEE HOW THIS

MAN MIRACULOUSLY SURVIVES.

PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS RIGHT

Gordon: GAR GORDON

CAMPBELL WAS TRAVELLING

65 MILES PER HOUR WHEN HE

WAS HIT HEAD ON BY A CAR.

HE FLEW THROUGH THE AIR

BEFORE SKIDDING TO A STOP

ON THE GROUND.

THAT'S WHEN THREE

MYSTERIOUS STRANGERS BEGAN

PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE.

Reporter: ON

JUNE 9th, 2016,

73-YEAR-OLD GORDON

CAMPBELL WAS ENJOYING A

MOTORCYCLE RIDE ALONG U.S.

HIGHWAY 2 NEAR LIBBY,

MONTANA.

I MET THIS ONCOMING

CAR.

THERE WAS NO OTHER TRAFFIC

ON THE ROAD.

I WAS DOING ABOUT 60 MILES

AN HOUR.

I WOULD GUESS HIS SPEED

ABOUT 70.

Reporter: AS THE

VEHICLES GOT CLOSER, THE

CAR CROSSED OVER THE

CENTER LINE, HITTING

GORDON HEAD-ON.

I KNEW I WAS DEAD.

RIGHT ON IMPACT, I THOUGHT

THAT WAS THE END OF IT.

SO I CALLED ON THE LORD,

AND SAID, LORD JESUS.

Reporter: GORDON

CRASHED INTO THE

WINDSHIELD AND FLEW OVER

THE CAR, SMASHING THE SUN

ROOF AND CAR WINDOW BEFORE

GOING ANOTHER 150 FEET

DOWN THE HIGHWAY.

I REMEMBER FLYING

THROUGH THE AIR AND

SKIDDING ON THE GROUND AND

FINALLY COMING TO A STOP.

Reporter: GORDON WAS

DAZED BUT CONSCIOUS.

AFTER I WAS ON THE

GROUND FOR A SHORT TIME, I

HEARD THESE VOICES

TALKING.

AND THERE WERE TWO WOMEN'S

VOICES AND A MAN'S VOICE.

THEY ASKED IF THEY COULD

PRAY FOR ME.

GOD, I PRAY IN THE NAME

OF JESUS FOR HEALING FOR

THIS MAN.

I DISTINCTIVELY FELT

THREE HANDS ON MY BACK.

TAKE AWAY ALL HIS PAIN.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

GOD, WITH BRING THIS

MAN BEFORE THE THRONE.

WE JUST BELIEVE FOR

MIRACLES.

I FELT REASSURED.

I FELT SAFE.

I FELT COMFORTABLE.

I DIDN'T WANT THE PRAYER

TO END.

SO THEY FINISHED PRAYING,

AND I THOUGHT, BOY, I

BETTER THANK THESE PEOPLE.

AND I TURNED AROUND AND

THERE WAS NO ONE THERE.

Reporter: GORDON WAS

TAKEN TO A MEDICAL CENTER

WITH MULTIPLE FRACTURES.

BY THEN, GORDON'S WIFE HAD

BEEN CALLED AND TOLD HE

WAS IN AN ACCIDENT.

THEN SHE LEARNED HE WAS

BEING AIRLIFTED TO KOOTNY

HEALTH HOSPITAL, MORE THAN

TWO HOURS AWAY.

I STARTED REALIZING IT

WAS PRETTY SERIOUS, BUT AT

THE SAME TIME MY SPIRIT

WAS AT PEACE.

Reporter: STILL,

DOCTORS WERE CONCERNED

ABOUT BRAIN TRAUMA OR

OTHER INTERNAL INJURIES.

NORMALLY A PERSON WHO

SUSTAINS AN AUTO VERSUS

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT, THAT

TRAUMA CAN BE REALLY

SEVERE.

YOU HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR

A LOT OF INTERNAL

INJURIES.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

KAREN AND OTHER FAMILY

MEMBERS ARRIVED.

HE LOOKED PRETTY BAD.

IT WAS PRETTY SCARY.

ALL OF THE FAMILY CAME IN

REALLY, REALLY QUICKLY.

A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE

PRAYING FOR US.

Reporter: DESPITE THE

VIOLENT IMPACT, GORDON HAD

NO HEAD, SPINE, OR

INTERNAL INJURIES.

I WAS VERY IMPRESSED

WITH ACTUALLY HOW GOOD HE

LOOKED, CONSIDERING.

GORDON HAD SUSTAINED A

FRACTURE AND BROKEN BONE

IN HIS ELBOW.

HE HAD ALSO FRACTURES IN

HIS FOOT AND A FRACTURE IN

HIS LEG, AROUND HIS KNEE.

REALLY, THE ELBOW WAS THE

MOST PRESSING CONCERN AT

THAT POINT.

Reporter: DR. BOWAN

PERFORMED SURGERY, AND

GORDON MADE A COMPLETE

RECOVERY.

IT IS A MIRACLE

HEALING.

I THINK HIS FAITH PLAYED A

TREMENDOUS ROLE IN HIS

OUTCOME AND HOW WELL HE

HAS DONE.

Reporter: GORDON AND

KAREN SAY HE IS HERE TODAY

BECAUSE OF GOD'S LOVE AND

PROTECTION.

IT IS MIRACULOUS THAT

I'M ABLE TO EVEN WALK

AROUND OR EVEN BE HERE.

I BELIEVE THE LORD JUST

PROTECTED ME, EITHER

DIRECTLY OR THROUGH HIS

ANGELS.

I HAVE HEARD A LOT

ABOUT MIRACLES, BUT THAT

WAS THE FIRST TIME WE HAD

EXPERIENCED ONE THAT WAS

SO OVERWHELMING, AND SO

OBVIOUSLY THE LORD JESUS

PROTECTED HIM.

PEOPLE ASK HOW WE'RE

DOING, AND I TELL THEM

ABOUT THE ACCIDENT.

AND THEY ALWAYS SAY, HE

MUST HAVE HAD A REALLY

GOOD HELMET.

NO, HE HAD A REALLY GOOD

JESUS.

Gordon: HE HAD A

REALLY GOOD JESUS, AND YOU

CAN HAVE THAT REALLY GOOD

JESUS, TOO.

CALL ON THE NAME OF THE

LORD IN THE TIME OF

TROUBLE.

THAT'S WHEN HE SAID, AS

I'M FLYING THROUGH THE

AIR, I'M CALLING OUT,

JESUS, HELP ME.

AND GOD RESPONDS.

HE RESPONDS TO THE CRIES

OF HIS CHILDREN.

IF YOU'RE A PARENT AND

YOUR CHILDREN ARE CRYING,

YOU GO TO THEM AND YOU

LEARN THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN THEIR CRIES.

YOU CAN TELL WHEN IT IS

URGENT.

AND YOU GET UP AND GO.

GOD DOES THE SAME THING.

HE IS FAR MORE INTERESTED

IN YOU THAN WE ARE IN OUR

OWN CHILDREN.

HE KNOWS THE VERY NUMBER

OF THE HAIRS ON YOUR HEAD.

HE WANTS TO HELP US.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS CRY

OUT TO HIM.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.

BEFORE WE PRAY, WE'VE GOT

SOME MIRACLES FOR YOU.

THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE WHO

HAVE BEEN TOUCHED BY GOD.

ELEANOR OF REDBANK, NEW

JERSEY, HAD A STROKE AND

LOST HER ABILITY TO SPEAK.

HER EMPLOYEE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB".

AND SHE SAID HEARD TERRY

SAY "YOU HAVE HAD A STROKE

AND YOU HAVE TROUBLE

SPEAKING.

GOD IS SETTING THAT IN

ORDER, IN YOUR TONGUE AND

IN YOUR MUSCLES RIGHT NOW.

AND TODAY IS THE DAY

YOU'LL BEGIN TO SPEAK

CLEARLY IN JESUS' NAME."

JOY TRUSTED THE LOCAL FOR

ELLIE'S HEALING, AND AFTER

HEARING THE WORD, SHE

SPOKE TO ELLIE AND WAS

DELIGHTED TO FIND OUT THAT

SHE HAD BEEN HEALED.

THAT IS LIKE A MODERN DAY

STORY.

Terry: HERE IS AN

AMAZING ONE AS WELL.

THIS IS BILL, WHO LIVES IN

PENNSYLVANIA.

HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

"RENAL CANCER IN 2010."

HE HAS HAD SEVEN SURGERIES

TO REMOVE TUMORS.

DURING ONE OF THE

SURGERIES, HE HAD KIDNEY

PAIN.

AND THEY FOUND THAT THE

DAMAGE WAS CAUSED FROM A

BLOCKAGE OF THE TUBE IN

THE AREA.

GORDON, YOU GAVE THIS WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE "THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH A BLOCKAGE IN

YOUR RIGHT KIDNEY, AND THE

TUBE THAT COMES OUT OF THE

KIDNEY, AND IT'S VERY

PAINFUL FOR YOU.

AND YOU'RE ASKING FOR A

MIRACLE RIGHT NOW.

THE BLOCKAGE IS DISSOLVING

AND LEAVE YOU RIGHT NOW.

PAIN BE GONE RIGHT YOU IN

JESUS' NAME."

BILL CLAIMED THE WORD, AND

A WEEK LATER, HE RETURNED

TO DOCTORS FOR MORE TESTS,

AND THEY REPEATED THE

SONOGRAM AND C.T. TEST

TWICE, AND THE RESULTS

WERE THE SAME BOTH TIMES.

THE BLOCKAGE I WAS GONE, AND

THE TUMOR WAS GONE AS

WELL.

BILL AND HIS WIFE ARE

PRAISING THE LORD.

Gordon: HALLELUJAH.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE PEOPLE RIGHT NOW.

AS FAITH IS BUILDING, YOU

ALWAYS RESPOND TO FAITH.

ALL WE NEED TO DO IS HAVE

A LITTLE MUSTARD SEED.

SO, LORD, STRETCH FORTH

YOUR HAND TO DO MIRACLES

TODAY, TO RESTORE, TO

HEAL, TO SET FREE FROM ALL

PAIN IN JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS A WOMAN, AND YOUR

NAME IS AGNES, AND YOU'RE

SUFFERING WITH

DEBILITATING ARTHRITIS IN

YOUR HANDS.

IT HAS REALLY AFFECTED

YOUR RIGHT HAND AND IT IS

ASWOLLEN.

AND YOU CAN'T EXTEND THE

FINGERS.

EXTEND THEM NOW AND BE

HEALED IN JESUS' NAME.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU'VE HAD A

FRACTURE IN YOUR RIGHT

ARM, DOWN CLOSE TO THE

ELBOW, AND GOD IS HEALING

THAT.

HE IS KNITTING THAT

TOGETHER AGAIN.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE

RESTORED AND MADE WHOLE

NOW.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE

SERIOUS BACK INJURIES.

YOU'RE ACTUALLY IN A BODY

CAST, AND THERE HAS BEEN

SOME QUESTION ABOUT

WHETHER THAT COULD HEAL

FOR YOU OR NOT.

EVEN AS YOU ARE SITTING

THERE NOW, GOD IS KNITTING

YOU BACK TOGETHER AND

YOU'LL HAVE NO RESIDUAL

PROBLEMS FROM THAT.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH A PROBLEM IN

YOUR LEFT EAR, AND YOU'RE

NOT EVEN ASKING FOR

PRAYER, BUT GOD IS TELLING

YOU RIGHT NOW YOU'RE

HEALED.

IN JESUS' NAME.

CALL US IF YOU NEED

PRAYER: 1-800-700-7000.

> HERE IS A WORD: "EYE

HAS NOT SEEN NOR EAR

HEARD, NOR HAS IT ENTERED

INTO THE HEART OF MAN,

WHAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR

THOSE WHO LOVE HIM."
