Gordon: FROM MOMBO

NUMBER 5 ARTIST, LOU

VEGA'S LIFE-CHANGING

MOMENT...

I FELT LIKE A NEWBORN.

THAT'S WHY THE TOMORROW

"BORN AGAIN" IS REALLY

FITTING.

Gordon: TO A HOMELESS

MAN SET FREE ON THE

STREETS OF BRAZIL.

FREEDOM, FREEDOM,

FREEDOM.

Gordon: SEE THE

MOVEMENT OF DISCIPLES

GROWING AROUND THE

WORLD...ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

> WELL, WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

HERE IS A QUOTE FOR YOU:

"THE FILM IS GOING TO BE

THE BIGGEST FILM IN

HISTORY, IT'S THAT GOOD."

THAT'S A STATEMENT THAT

ACTOR JI JIM CAVIEZEL MADE

ABOUT THE NEW FILM BY MEL

GIBSON.

Terry: HE PLAYED THE

ROLE IN THE 2004

BLOCKBUSTER WAS ENCOURAGED

BY THE DIRECTION THE

SEQUEL IS TAKING, SAYING,

THERE ARE THINGS I CANNOT

SAY THAT WILL SHOCK THE

AUDIENCE.

IT'S GREAT.

STAY TUNED.

Gordon: BACK IN 2016,

MEL GIBSON WAS ASKED ABOUT

THE SEQUEL, AND HE SAID,

THE RESURRECTION, BIG

SUBJECT.

WE'RE TRYING TO CRAFT THIS

IN A WAY SO THAT IT SHINES

NEW LIGHT, IF POSSIBLE,

WITHOUT CREATING SOME

WEIRD THINGS.

Terry: JIM CAVIEZEL

IS AN OUTSPOKEN PERSON OF

FAITH.

LAST MONTH HE TOLD A

CONFERENCE TO, QUOTE,

"HAVE THE COURAGE TO STEP

INTO THIS PAGAN WORLD AND

SET YOURSELVES APART FROM

THIS CORRUPT GENERATION.

BE SAINTS.

YOU WEREN'T MADE TO FIT

IN; YOU WERE BORN TO STAND

OUT."

ANY LOVE THAT.

Gordon: HE SOUNDS

LIKE THE APOSTLE PAUL.

WE NEED TO BE LIGHT IN

THIS WICKED AND PERVERSE

GENERATION.

AND IT IS NOTHING NEW.

THE CHRISTIANS NOW HOW TO

DO VERY WELL AS THE

MINORITY.

AND HOW TO BE THAT LIGHT,

THAT SALT, THAT'S WHAT

WE'RE CALLED TO DO.

Terry: WELL, IF YOU

HAVE KIDS, YOU KNOW IT IS

MUSIC TO THEIR EARS WHEN

THEY HEAR THE WORDS "SNOW

DAY."

Gordon: FOR SOME

STUDENTS, THEIR SNOW DAY

COMES IN THE FORM OF

MUSIC.

Reporter: THERE IS

ALWAYS THE COOL TEACHER IN

EVERY SCHOOL.

PRINCIPAL CHAD CADELL ON

THE COLDEST DAYS OF ALL,

MIGHT JUST BE THE COOLEST.

* SCHOOL IS CANCELLED FOR

TODAY *

* GO BACK TO BED AND THEN

PLAY *

WE THOUGHT, HOW CAN WE

MAKE THIS FUN FOR THEM?

Reporter: PARENTS

LOVE HIS GARTH BROOKS' IM

IMPERSONATION.

AND KIDS DEFINITELY

RECOGNIZE THIS TAYLOR

SWIFT BEAT.

* WE'RE CLOSED, THAT'S THE

CASE *

Reporter: WITH OVER A

MILLION VIEWS REACHING

BEYOND THE CAMPUS IN

FLORENCE, KENTUCKY, HE IS

NOW CALLED THE SINGING

PRINCIPAL.

WE'LL DO EVERYTHING WE

CAN TO PROVIDE STUDENTS

WITH AN UNCOMMON

EXPERIENCE, THEY'LL EVERY

TIME REWARD US WITH AN

UNCOMMON EFFORT AND

ATTITUDE.

Reporter: EAT YOUR

HEART OUT, MIRIAM CAREY.

* IT'S A SNOW DAY JUST FOR

YOU *

Terry: I LIKE THE

HAT.

I'M A NORTHERNER --

Gordon: WE'VE

INVESTIGATE THGOT THEHAT RIGHT BEHIND US.

SHOULD WE GET THIS FOR

TERRY?

Terry: WILL SHE WEAR

IT AND SHOW YOU SHE HAS

RECEIVED IT?

I THINK NOT.

Gordon: CBN NEWS IS

DIFFERENT FROM OTHER NEWS

SOURCES BECAUSE WE ALSO

SHOW STORIES THAT SHOWCASE

THE POWER OF GOOD.

Terry: REPORTER

CAITLIN BURKE BRINGS US

THE TOP THREE SOCIAL MEDIA

STORIES FROM 2017, STORIES

THAT TRULY DISPLAY GOD'S

HEART TO REDEEM AND

RESTORE.

Reporter: A UNIQUE

TESTIMONY FROM BLAIR

MONIQUE WALKER REACHED

MORE THAN 45,000 PEOPLE IN

2015.

SHE ANNOUNCED SHE HAD BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH UTERINE

CANCER, AND WOULD NEED A

HYSTERECTOMY, LEAVING HER

UNABLE TO HAVE CHILDREN.

THEN DURING A CHECKUP A

FEW DAYS BEFORE THE

SURGERY, THE DOCTOR FOUND

NO PROBLEM.

HIS WORDS, "IT LOOKS LIKE

YOUR GOOD TOOK AWAY YOUR

PROBLEM AND LEFT YOU WITH

A BABY."

> HER MOM BROUGHT HOME

SOME FREE BOOKS, INCLUDING

A BIBLE.

INITIALLY SHE READ THE

BIBLE TO PROVE CHRISTIANS

WRONG.

INSTEAD, SHE FOUND SHE

COULD NOT RESIST THE LOVE

OF JESUS.

THEN DURING HER BAPTISM,

SOMETHING INCREDIBLE

HAPPENED.

WHEN I GOT BAPTIZED IN

WATER, SUDDENLY I DON'T

EVEN REMEMBER WHAT I DID.

WHEN I SEE THE VIDEOS, I

THINK IT IS CRAZY.

IT WASN'T ME.

[YELLING]

Reporter: PEACE

FINALLY CAME OVER HER AND

SHE WAS SET FREE.

NOW SHE TRAVELS, SHARING

HER TESTIMONY.

> ROUNDING OUT OUR LIST

IS THE TREMENDOUS INTEREST

IN JUSTIN BIEBER'S FAITH

JOURNEY.

GOD IS GOOD IN THE

MIDST OF THE DARKNESS.

GOD IS GOOD IN THE MIDST

OF THE EVIL.

GOD IS IN THE MIDST.

Reporter: THAT SPEECH

CAME DURING THE "ONE LOVE"

MANCHESTER CONCERT AFTER A

TERROR ATTACK KILLED 21

PEOPLE.

BIEBER POSTS, INCLUDING ON

INSTAGRAM, WHERE HE SAID,

"JESUS IS CHANGING ME FROM

THE INSIDE OUT EVERY DAY."

Terry: HALLELUJAH.

Gordon: THAT'S JUST A

SAMPLING OF THE STORIES

YOU FIND ON CBN NEWS.

AND REALIZE, YES, GOD IS

IN THE DARKNESS.

NO MATTER WHAT THE OTHER

NEWS HEADLINES ARE, YOU

CAN ALWAYS FIND GOOD.

> COMING UP, WE'LL

INTRODUCE YOU TO A MAN

BEHIND A MINISTRY, AND HIS

NEW FILM STARTS IN IT'S THE

LIVING ROOM OF A POP STAR,

AND ENDS UP WITH A

HOMELESS MAN ON THE

STREETS OF BRAZIL.

TORBEN SONDERGAARDE JOINS

US, AND THAT'S NEXT.

Gordon: DANISH

MINISTER TORBEN

SONDERGAARDE SAYS WILL IS

A MOVEMENT GROWING AROUND

THE WORLD.

PEOPLE ARE REDISCOVERING

WHAT IT TRULY MEANS TO BE

A DISCIPLE OF JESUS.

HIS NEW DOCUMENTARY FILM

SHOWS EVERY DAY BELIEVERS

SEEING MIRACLES AND

PREACHING THE GOSPEL, AND

LIVING THE KIND OF LIVES

THEY READ ABOUT IN THE

BOOK OF ACTS.

HERE IS A LOOK AT "THE

LAST REFORMATION: THE

LIFE."

WE DONE OBEY JESUS FOR

BROWNIE POINTS OR REWARDS.

WE OBEY HIM BECAUSE WE

LOVE HIM AND FOR WHAT HE

HAS DOES FOR US.

SO WE WANT TO GLORIFY HIM.

YOU HAVE BIG BATTLES

AND BIG VICTORIES, AND IT

JUST CARRIES ON LIKE THAT.

AND IF IT IS FLESH, THEN

YOU'RE DONE.

AND SO MANY PEOPLE ARE

LIVING THIS LIFE OF THE

SAME ROUTINE OVER AND

OVER, NOT TRULY LIVING.

I DON'T NEED YOU AND

YOUR GOD.

IF YOU DON'T RECEIVE

ANY PERSECUTION IN YOUR

LIFE, YOU NEED TO ASK

YOURSELF WHETHER YOU'RE

ACTUALLY DOING THE RIGHT

THING BECAUSE WE ARE

PROMISED EXECUTION.

THERE ARE PAINFUL PARTS

OF LIFE THAT SHAME YOUR

HEART BECAUSE WHEN YOU

HAVE NO RESOURCES TO LEAN

ON, THE ONLY THING YOU

HAVE IS JESUS.

YOU CANNOT GET TO KNOW

JESUS WHEN YOU'RE

DISTRACTED BY SO MANY

OTHER THINGS IN LIFE.

HE CAME SO THAT EVERY

CHRISTIAN CAN BE A LIVING

STONE, BUT THESE ARE DEAD

STONES.

WE ARE NOW THE STONES.

WE ARE WHERE JESUS CHRIST

WAS LIVING.

WHY DO SO MANY SPEND

$300 MILLION TO BUILD THIS

IN THE MIDDLE OF A POOR

AREA?

WE LOOK AT JESUS, AND

WHERE WOULD JESUS HAVE

BEEN TODAY?

WE NEED TO ASK OURSELVES

THAT?

THERE WE HAVE HIM AND THE

WHOLE FAMILY.

I KNEW THAT ME, MY

FAMILY, AND EVERYONE

AROUND ME NEEDED TO BE

BAPTIZED AND NEEDED TO

DRAW CLOSER TO JESUS.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN THAT

HE IS HUMAN?

MAYBE HE IS ALIVE.

AND IF HE IS ALIVE, THEN

WE HAVE RELATIONSHIP.

JESUS DIED SO THAT WE

CAN HAVE SURVIVAL.

Gordon: WELL, THE

PRODUCER OF THAT FILM,

TORBEN, IS WITH US.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE THING.

I JUST ADMIRE THE BOLDNESS

THAT YOU HAVE TO SAY,

OKAY, WE'RE GOING TO LET

THE CAMERAS ROLL AND WER

JUSWE'REJUST GOING TO GO IN IN AND

SHOOT WHAT HAPPENS.

WHERE DO YOU GET THAT

FROM?

A LONGING.

A LONGING FOR JUST SEEING

THE LIVES -- I WAS

FRUSTRATEDFRUSTRATED AND I LONGED

FOR MORE.

AND WHEN I SAW THERE WAS

MORE, I THOUGHT ABOUT HOW

CAN I GET THIS OUT TO

PEOPLE.

NOT ONLY TO WRITE IT DOWN,

BUT TO SHOW IT.

AND TO SHOW THAT THIS IS

HAPPENING RIGHT NOW.

MANY PEOPLE ARE SO USED TO

THE CHURCH MEETING ON

SUNDAYS, BUT, ACTUALLY,

GOD IS WORKING OUT ON THE

STREETS.

AND THERE IS SOMETHING WE

CAN ALL DO.

Gordon: WHAT DO YOU

DO WHEN PEOPLE RESIST?

THERE WAS A SHORT PIECE IN

THAT TRAILER OF SOMEONE

WHO HAS CRUTCHES, SITTING

ON A BENCH, AND HE SAID HE

DIDN'T WANT TO HAVE

ANYTHING TO DO WITH YOUR

GOD.

I OFTEN END UP

DISCUSSING THINGS WITH

PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY DON'T

WANT TO HEAR.

PEOPLE SAID TAKE YOUR HAND

AND MOVE ON.

BY TAKING THE DUST OFF AND

MOVE ON, THEN WE FINALLY

FIND THOSE PEOPLE WHO WANT

TO LISTEN.

AND WE GO THE WHOLE WAY

WITH THEM.

SO WE ALWAYS FIND PEOPLE

WHO RESISTED.

BUT IF WE KEEP GOING, WE

ALSO FIND THOSE WHO ARE

OPEN.

Gordon: YES.

IT'S ALMOST LIKE GOD HAS

PREPARED THEM.

YEAH.

FOR ME, WHEN I -- LUKE

GAVE THE DISCIPLES VERY

SPECIFIC ORDER OF WHAT TO

O DO.

DO.

YOU HEAL THE SICK, YOU

PREACH THE GOSPEL.

IF PEOPLE DO NOT RECEIVE

THE MESSAGE, MOVE ON.

WHEN YOU START TO DO IT

JESUS' WAY, LIKE THAT, AND

SAY, JESUS, WHO IS THAT

PERSON, AND HOW DO I FIND

THAT PERSON, YOU HEAR

THOSE STORIES ALL OF THE

TIME WHERE YOU MEET

PEOPLE.

AND PEOPLE SAYING, IT'S SO

INTERESTING YOU STOP NOW

BECAUSE TWO DAYS AGO I WAS

SITTING WITH A FRIEND AND

WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IT,

OR LAST WEEK I LOOKED UP

IN THE SKY AND I SAID,

GOD, IF YOU'RE THERE, SEND

SOMEBODY TO ME.

THOSE STORIES WE GET ALL

OF THE TIME IF WE REALLY

LEARN TO WALK ABOUT THE

SPIRIT.

I THINK THIS IS SOMETHING

GOD HAS -- JESUS HAS

CALLED US TO DO IT.

I'VE BEEN EVANGELIZING FOR

YEARS WITHOUT SEEING A LOT

OF FRUIT.

I HAD SEEN MORE

FRUSTRATION, BUT WHEN I

STOPPED A FEW YEARS AGO

DOING IT MY WAY, AND

REALLY SAID, JESUS, WHAT

IS IT YOU HAVE CALLED US

TO DO?

YOU NOT ONLY CALLED US TO

PRIEST, BUT TO CAST OUT

DEMONS.

WHEN WE PRAY, PEOPLE

REPENT, THEY GET BAPTIZED,

AND THEY RECEIVE THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

AND THAT CHANGES

EVERYTHING WHEN YOU START

TO DO THAT.

Gordon: YEAH, IT

DOES.

> YOU HAVE SOMETHING YOU

CALL "KICK-STARTING."

YEAH.

Gordon: WERE YOU

KICK-STARTED?

MANY YEARS AGO, I WAS

DOING A SEMINARY WHEN I

TALKED ABOUT HOW TO HEAL

THE SICK.

HEALING THE SICK IS ONE

HOUR BECAUSE THE SEMINAR

WAS ONE HOUR.

BUT I DIDN'T JUST WANT TO

TEACH IT, I WANTED TO SHOW

IT.

SO I FOUND A NEW BELIEVER,

AND I SAID, CAN YOU BORROW

YOU IN THE NEXT HOUR?

AND HE SAID, YES.

AND I TOOK HIM OUT ON THE

STREET.

AND I FOUND SOMEONE AND

HEALED THE SICK, AND THEN

I SAID, NOW YOU DO IT.

AND I TOLD HIM, DON'T SAY

THIS TO ANYONE BECAUSE I

DID IT TO ILLUSTRATE

SOMETHING FOR MY SERMON

THE NEXT DAY.

BUT HE WAS GOING AROUND

AND TELLING EVERYONE ABOUT

WHAT HE HAD SEEN AND

HEARD.

HE COULD NOT STOP TELLING

PEOPLE ABOUT IT.

AND THEN I DISCOVERED

SOMETHING: THIS IS

DISCIPLESHIP.

IT IS NOT ONLY TEACHING

ABOUT IT, BUT ALSO SHOWING

PEOPLE HOW TO DO IT.

AND THEN WE STARTED TO DO

IT, AND THEY EXPLODED.

I FOUND A GUY IN SWEDEN,

LIKE THREE YEARS AGO, AND

I KICK-STARTED HIM, AND HE

KICK-STARTED SOMEBODY, WHO

KICK-STARTED SOMEBODY, WHO

KICK-STARTED SOMEBODY.

ONE AND A HALF YEARS

LATER, I WAS BACK IN

SWEDEN, AND THEN I SAW SIX

GENERATIONS.

I HAVE KICK-STARTED

SOMEBODY WHO HAD

KICK-STARTED SOMEBODY, WHO

HAD KICK-STARTED SOMEBODY,

WHO HAD KICK-STARTED

SOMEBODY, WHO HAD

KICK-STARTED SOMEBODY.

SO WE SAW LIKE 100,000

PEOPLE GETTING HEALED

THROUGH THE KICK-STARTING.

AND SO WE ACTUALLY TAKE

PEOPLE AND SHOW THEM.

HEALING HAS BEEN JUST THE

BEGINNING OF IT.

WE WANT TO SEE PEOPLE

SAVED.

WE WANT TO SEE PEOPLE BORN

AGAIN.

WHEN YOU LEARN TO RIDE A

BICYCLE, WHEN YOU FIRST

LEARN HOW TO BALANCE THE

BIKE, IT CAN TAKE YOU ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

AND YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO

IT.

WHEN YOU TAKE THAT FIRST

STEP, HEAL THE FIRST SICK,

CAST THE FIRST DEMON OUT,

BAPTIZE SOMEONE IN WATER,

WHEN YOU HAVE DONE IT ONE

TIME, YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO

IT AGAIN AND YOU CAN DO IT

AGAIN AND YOU CAN DO IT

AGAIN.

THIS IS WHAT WE CALL

KICK-STARTING.

Gordon: AND I WOULD

CALL IT DISCIPLESHIP.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT JESUS

WOULD DO.

HE WOULD DO AND TEACH, AND

SOMETIMES HE WOULD TEACH

AND DO.

BUT HE WOULD ALWAYS BE

PERFORMING, AND THEN HE

WOULD SAY TO HIS

DISCIPLES, LUKE 10, IT'S

YOUR TURN.

I'M GOING TO STAY BACK

HERE AND YOU'RE GOING TO

GO.

VERY OFTEN WE HAVE BEEN

PREACHING TO THE PEOPLE IN

CHURCH WHAT THEY NEED TO

DO, BUT THEN MONDAY

MORNING THEY'RE OUT THERE

ALONE, AND IT IS A BIG

STEP FOR PEOPLE.

IT IS A BIG STEP TO DO IT

WHEN YOU'RE ALONE.

BUT IF YOU SAY, JESUS,

COME AND FOLLOW ME.

AND WHEN YOU GO WITH

SOMEBODY WHO HAS MORE

EXPERIENCE THAN YOU HAVE,

THAT PERSON BESIDE YOU

ACTUALLY TAKES AWAY ALL OF

YOUR FEAR.

BECAUSE YOU KNOW IN YOUR

HEAD, OKAY, THAT PERSON

BESIDE ME KNOWS WHAT HE IS

DOING.

THE RESPONSIBILITY IS NOT

ON ME.

I JUST DO WHAT HE TELLS ME

TO DO.

AND THE FIRST TIME WHEN

YOU DO IT, WHERE YOU STAND

AND LOOK, AND THE NEXT

TIME YOU WALK A LITTLE

FURTHER AWAY AND FIND OUT

IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH

THAT PERSON.

AND WHEN YOU HAVE DONE IT

BY YOURSELF, YOU CAN GO

AND SHOW OTHER PEOPLE HOW

TO DO THE SAME.

Gordon: YOU'RE ON TO

SOMETHING WITH

DISTRACTIONS, THAT OUR

MODERN LIFE HAS A THE LOT

OF DISTRACTIONS.

HOW DOES THAT HURT OUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE

LORD?

OFTEN WHEN WE'RE

PREACHING, WE TALK ABOUT

THE FALL.

THE MAN WHO SAW THE SEED

THAT FELL ON FOUR

DIFFERENT GROUNDS, BUT

ONLY ONE BEARS FRUIT.

THE FIRST ONE ARE THE

PEOPLE WHO WE MEET OUT THE

STREET AND THEY DON'T WANT

TO LISTEN.

AND NUMBER TWO, THEY LOOK

GOOD FOR A TIME, BUT THEN

PERSECUTION SITS IN

BECAUSE OF THE WORD AND

THEY FALL AWAY.

PERSECUTION IS NOT OUR

ENEMY.

PERSECUTION IS ACTUALLY

OUR HELP.

PERSECUTION SHOWS HOW DEEP

THE FRUIT HAS GONE IN A

PERSON'S LIFE.

THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF

PEOPLE: THOSE PEOPLE WHO

EXPERIENCE PERSECUTION AND

FALL AWAY, GROUND NUMBER

THREE, AND THEN THERE ARE

PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCE

PERSECUTION AND THEY FALL

ON THEIR KNEES AND PRAY

AND SEEK GOD LIKE NEVER

BEFORE AND THEREFORE THEY

GROW.

AND THEN THEY FOUND WHAT

JESUS WAS TALKING ABOUT,

SOMETHING THAT IS

DANGEROUS AND GROWING UP

BESIDE US, AND THAT IS THE

DECEITFULNESS OF RICHTION.

OF RICHES.

THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WE

HAVE IS WE'RE TOO BUSY.

WE HAVE CREATED A LIFE,

WITH A HOUSE AND DOG AND

GARDEN AND ALL OF THAT.

AND WE WAKE UP EVERY

MORNING AND WE GO TO THE

JOB, WE COME HOME FROM THE

JOB, AND WE'RE TIRED, AND

WE SIT IN FRONT OF THE TV

FOR A FEW HOURS, AND THEN

A NEW DAY AND A NEW WEEK.

IF WE'RE NOT AWARE OF

THAT, WE HAVE BAD FRUIT.

AND WE NEED TO LOOK AT

THOSE THINGS.

WE NEED TO CHANGE OUR

LIVES SO WE HAVE TIME TO

DO WHAT IS IMPORTANT.

A PE FEW YEARS AGO, ME AND MY

WIFE WERE LIVING A GOOD

LIFE, HAD A GOOD JOB AND A

GOOD HOUSE, AND WE WERE

BUSY LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.

AND ONE DAY I GOT FIRED.

I WAS NOT HAPPY WHEN I GOT

FIRED, BUT IT WOKE ME UP.

BECAUSE I COULD NOT PAY

THE BILLS.

I FOUND OUT IN THE LAST

FEW YEARS, GOD HAD

DISAPPEARED FROM MY LIFE.

I DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO PRAY

OR TO SEEK HIM OR TO OBEY

HIM.

BUT WHEN I GOT FIRED, I

NEEDED HIM.

AND I WAS FASTING 40 DAYS,

AND GOD STARTED TO SPEAK

TO ME IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AND IT BECAME A JOURNEY.

AND AT ONE TIME, WE FELT

WE SHOULD START ALL OVER.

WE GOT RID OF THE HOUSE.

WE LIVED IN A SMALL

BASEMENT WITH THREE KIDS.

EVERYONE LOOKED AT US LIKE

WE'RE CRAZY.

BUT WE HAD SOMETHING OUR

FRIENDS DID NOT HAVE: WE

HAD TIME.

TIME TO OBEY GOD.

SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF

GOD AND DO HIS WILL.

AND THEN WE EXPERIENCED

THE BLESSING, HOW THINGS

WERE ADDED TO US.

I THINK THINGS ARE

DECEIVING US.

MOST CHRISTIANS, THE ONLY

TIME THEY REALLY HAVE IS

TWO HOURS EVERY SUNDAY

BECAUSE THEY'RE

DISTRACTEDED WITH THIS

LIFE, WITH THE

DECEITFULNESS OF RICHES,

AND THE WORRIES AND

LONGINGS.

Gordon: AND WE SHOULD

HAVE TWO HOURS EVERY DAY.

AND THEN GO OUT AND DO

WHAT HE TELLS US TO DO.

AND I OFTEN SAY, THERE

IS NOBODY, JUST BEFORE

THEY DIE, WHO LOOK BACK

BEFORATTHEIR LIVES AND SAY, WHY

DIDN'T I GET A BIGGER TV

OR A BETTER CAR.

BUT THEY WILL SAY, WHY

DIDN'T I JUST DO WHAT

JESUS WANTED ME TO DO?

GOD IS CALLING PEOPLE TO

REALLY FOLLOW JESUS.

IF THAT MEANS SELL

EVERYTHING AND GIVE IT

AWAY AND COME AND FOLLOW

HIM, THEN THAT'S WHAT YOU

DO.

Gordon: I APPRECIATE

IT.

AND I APPRECIATE YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, YOU MIGHT REMEMBER

THE TWO TERRIBLE

EARTHQUAKES THAT HIT

MEXICO LAST YEAR.

SEE HOW YOU HELPED RESCUE

ONE FAMILY LIVING IN

Terry: LAST

SEPTEMBER, IN THE SPAN OF

JUST TWO WEEKS, MEX KE WAS MEXICO WAS

HIT BY TWO POWERFUL

EARTHQUAKES.

AND SECONDS AFTER THE

FIRST TREMOR BEGAN,

MIRIAM'S HOUSE COLLAPSED

TO THE GROUND.

BY THE TIME WE MET HER,

SHE AND HER CHILDREN WERE

LIVING IN A MAKESHIFT HOME

OF TARP AND STICKS.

Reporter: IN JIOPA,

MEXICO, I WALKED A ROCKY

PATH WITH MIRIAM AND HER

TWO CHILDREN.

SHE STRUGGLES BECAUSE SHE

HAD POLIO AS A BABY.

THAT MADE ENDURING THE

EARTHQUAKE IN MEXICO ALL

THE MORE DIFFICULT.

WE COULD NOT GET OUT OF

OUR HOUSE BECAUSE THE DOOR

GOT STUCK.

A NEIGHBOR HELPED US

ESCAPE, AND WE RUN.

EVERYTHING WAS DARK.

THE SECOND WE RUN OUTSIDE,

WE HEARD A LOUD NOISE.

IT WAS WALLS AND THE ROOF

FALLING DOWN.

THE WHOLE HOUSE

COLLAPSEDED.

COLLAPSED.

Reporter: WITH THEIR

HOME DESTROYED, MIRIAM

BORROWED SOME MATERIALS

AND MADE A SHELTER.

I ASKED HER IF RATS AND

MICE CAME IN, AND SHE TOLD

ME HER BIGGER CONCERN WAS

SNAKES.

I LOOKED DOWN, AND I

SAW A BIG SNAKE.

THEY LIVE ALL AROUND THE

PLACE.

I DIDN'T WANT SNAKES OR

SPIDERS TO BITE MY

CHILDREN, SO I LIT FIRES

EVERY NIGHT TO KEEP THEM

AWAY.

I ONLY SLEPT ONE OR TWO

HOURS A NIGHT AND THEN

WENT TO WORK.

Reporter: SHE MAKES A

LIVING PEEKING PEANUTS AND

CLEANING HOUSES.

BUT SHE COULD NEVER SAVE

ENOUGH TO BUILD OR BUY A

NEW HOME.

I TOLD MY MOTHER I

WANTED TO GET A JOB SO I

COULD HELP PAY FOR A HOUSE

FOR US.

Reporter: ALL SHE WAS

ABLE TO DO ON HER OWN WAS

BUILD A SIMPLE PLASTIC

SHACK.

WITH THE HELP OF CBN

DONORS AND VOLUNTEERS,

MIRIAM AND HER CHILDREN

WILL SOON HAVE A HOME.

WE PREFABRICATED PANELS AT

A LOCAL WORKSHOP.

WHEN THEY WERE READY, WE

CARRIED THEM UP THE HILL

TO WHERE THE FOUNDATION

HAD ALREADY BEEN POURED.

WE WORKED LATE INTO THE

NIGHT, USING OUR

PRODUCTION LIGHTS TO SEE.

IN A MATTER OF HALF A DAY,

THE BASIC STRUCTURE WAS

READY.

MIRIAM AND HER CHILDREN

COULD HARDLY BELIEVE IT.

WHEN I SAW THE HOUSE, I

WAS VERY HAPPY, AND MY

MOM, TOO.

Reporter: WITH JUST A

LITTLE MORE FINISHING WORK

DONE IN THE DAY LIGHT,

THEIR NEW HOME WAS SOON

READY.

MIRIAM MOVED IN RIGHT

AWAY.

SHE WONDERED WHY DONORS

AND VOLUNTEERS SHE DIDN'T

EVEN KNOW REACHED OUT TO

HELP HER FAMILY.

WE TALKED TO HER ABOUT GOD

AND THE BIBLE, AND THAT

DAY SHE DECIDED TO INVITE

JESUS INTO HER HEART.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING

US.

I AM VERY GRATEFUL TO YOU

AND TO GOD.

I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE A

HOUSE FOR MY CHILDREN.

GOD BLESS YOU SO MUCH.

[APPLAUSE]

DAY, $20 A MONTH.
