HE SAID, SHE'S NOT

BREATHING.

Gordon: A

SIX-WEEK-OLD WITH A DEADLY

HEART DEFECT.

PLEASE SAVE HER.

Gordon: INSPIRES A

PRAY CHAIN 1,000 CHURCHES

STRONG.

WE HELD ON TO HOPE AND

WE KEPT PRAYING.

Gordon: PLUS...THE

DANGERS FACING U.S. BORDER

PATROL AGENTS.

YOU COULD ENCOUNTER A

SEX OFFENDER OR A

MURDERER.

YOU JUST NEVER KNOW.

Gordon: ALL ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

> WELL, WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

A WEDDING VIDEO IS GOING

VIRAL AFTER AN AUSTRALIAN

BRIDE HONORED AND

SURPRISED HER HUSBAND, WHO

IS DEAF, IN A UNIQUE WE ON

THEIR WEDDING DAY.

Terry: SHE DECIDED TO

FOREGO THE TRADITIONAL

WALK DOWN THE AISLE WHEN

SHE BEGAN TO SIGN THE

WORDS TO CHRISTINA PERRY'S

"I'LL LOVE YOU A THOUSAND

YEARS."

HERE IS A CLIP.

* I HAVE DIED EVERY DAY

WAITING FOR YOU *

* DON'T BE AFRAID

* I'LL LOVE YOU FOR A

THOUSAND YEARS *

* I'LL LOVE YOU FOR A

THOUSAND MORE *

* ALL ALONG I BELIEVED I

WOULD FIND YOU *

* TIME HAS BROUGHT YOUR

HEART TO ME *

* I HAVE LOVED YOU FOR A

THOUSAND YEARS *

* I'LL LOVE YOU FOR A

THOUSAND MORE *

*

Gordon: WELL, TERRY,

I'LL MAKE A BOLD

PREDICTION, THIS ONE IS

GOING TO LAST.

Terry: I THINK YOU

HAVE SOMETHING THERE.

Gordon: I THINK

YOU'VE GOT A KEEPER.

Terry: THAT WAS

PRECIOUS.

WOW, WHAT A SPECIAL

MOMENT.

> WELL, LIKE MANY PEOPLE

WITH AUTISM, ANDREW HAD A

HARD TIME FINDING A JOB.

SO HIS FATHER, AN

ENTREPRENEUR, AND HIS

OLDER BROTHER, A BUSINESS

SCHOOL GRADUATE, HAD AN

IDEA: WHAT IF THEY OPENED

A BUSINESS, EMPLOYED

MOSTLY BY PEOPLE WITH

AUTISM.

Gordon: WELL, "RISING

TIDE CAR WASH" WAS FOUNDED

TO INSPIRE THESE

INDIVIDUALS BY GIVING THEM

THE TOOLS TO BE

PROFESSIONAL, AND TO

INSPIRE COMMUNITIES TO

CHANGE THEIR PERSSPECT OF

AUTISM.

THEY STRIVE TO BUILD THEIR

BUSINESS AROUND THE UNIQUE

STRENGTHS OF THEIR STAFF.

THEIR GOAL IS TO PROVIDE

PEOPLE WITH AUTISM AN

OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD A

CAREER AND ACHIEVE AN

INDEPENDENT LIFESTYLE

WHILE INSPIRING OTHER

COMMUNITIES TO DO THE SAME

THING.

AND I ALMOST WANT TO DRIVE

TO FLORIDA JUST TO GET A

CAR WASH.

I JUST LOVE THIS.

I LOVE THE IDEA BEHIND IT.

I LOVE HOW EMPOWERING IT

IS, TO GIVE PEOPLE A HOPE

AND A FUTURE.

YES, YOU CAN BUILD A

CAREER.

YEAH.

WHOEVER HAD THAT IDEA, YOU

GO.

Terry: YES.

IT IS WELL WORTH IT.

IT IS SUCH A MESSAGE IN

TODAY'S WORLD, TOO, OF HOW

VALUABLE EVERY LIFE IS.

AND, BOY, IF THAT DOESN'T

SEND THAT MESSAGE, I DON'T

KNOW WHAT DOES.

GENIUS, REALLY.

Gordon: YUP.

> A 9-YEAR-OLD GIRL, SHE

IS ALSO A GENIUS.

SHE HAD THE HELP FROM A

40-POUND CABBAGE.

AND SHE INSPIRED A

MOVEMENT TO HELP

COMMUNITIES IN NEED.

BACK IN 2008, KATIE

BROUGHT HOME A TINY

CABBAGE SEEDLING FROM

SCHOOL, AND CARED FOR IT

TENDERLY UNTIL IT GREW TO

BE 40 POUNDS.

KNOWING HER CABBAGE WAS

SPECIAL, SHE DONATED IT TO

A SOUP KITCHEN WHERE IT

FED OVER 275 PEOPLE.

Terry: WELL THEN,

MOVED BY THE EXPERIENCE,

KATIE DECIDED TO START

"KATIE'S CROPS."

HER MISSION IS TO INSPIRE

YOUTH ACROSS AMERICA TO

START AND MAINTAIN

VEGETABLE GARDENS OF ALL

SHAPES AND SIZES, AND THEN

DONATE THE HARVEST TO FEED

THE NEEDY IN THEIR

COMMUNITY.

ANOTHER GENIUS IDEA.

Gordon: IF YOU'VE

EVER BEEN INVOLVED IN

FEEDING THE HOMELESS, YOU

KNOW FRESH VEGETABLES ARE

REALLY HARD TO COME BY.

AND VERY EXPENSIVE TO HAVE

THAT.

THE CANNED GOODS ARE EASY,

AND THERE ARE USUALLY LOTS

OF DONATIONS FROM FOOD

COMPANIES OF THAT KIND OF

NON-PERISHABLE, BUT TO GET

FRESH VEGETABLES, AND JUST

NOW NUTRITIOUS THAT IS --

YEAH, YOU GO.

THAT'S WONDERFUL.

> WELL, SPEAKING OF

HELPING THOSE IN NEED,

JACLYN NORVEL, NICKNAMED

"THE BROWN BAG LADY," IS

MAKING SURE SOME OF

LOS ANGELES' MOST NEEDY

RESIDENTS HAVE FOOD.

Terry: THE SINGLE MOM

SAYS THE IDEA FIRST CAME

TO MIND CHRISTMAS MORNING

IN 2014, WHEN SHE AND HER

COLLEGE SON WENT DOWNTOWN

AND STOOD ON A CORNER AND

HANDED OUT TURKEY DINNERS.

SHE REALIZED SHE WANTED TO

DO MORE THAN JUST A

CHRISTMAS OUTREACH, SO

STARTED PACKING BROWN BAG

LUNCHES, WHICH USUALLY

INCLUDES A SANDWICH,

CHIPS, A COOKIE, AND A

BOTTLE OF WATER.

AND SHE TAPES A POSITIVE

QUOTE TO EACH SANDWICH BAG

WITH HOPES IT INSPIRES

JUST ONE PERSON.

Gordon: IT HAS NOW

GROWN TO A LARGE MONTHLY

EVENT ON SKID ROW WITH AN

ARMY OF VOLUNTEERS HELPING

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.

AND THAT IS A WONDERFUL

THING TO DO.

AND I LOVE THE INSPIRING

QUOTES.

Terry: I LOVE THE

FACT THAT THESE INSPIRING

IDEAS HAVE ALL COME FROM

INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE WHO JUST

STARTED DOING SOMETHING

THAT MATTERED.

AND IT MUSHROOMED BECAUSE

IT WAS SO GOOD.

Gordon: YAY!

> WHAT WOULD YOU DO IN

THE NAME OF BEAUTY?

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IT

COULD INVOLVE A COMMON

VISITOR IN YOUR GARDEN,

THE SNAIL.

Terry: WELL, IT IS

THE NEW SLITHERING -- OH,

PLEASE -- SECRET THAT

ACTUALLY MAY HELP YOU GET

GLOWING, REJUVENATED SKIN.

SOME DERMATOLOGISTS SAY

THE SLIME THAT SNAILS

LEAVE BEHIND IN THEIR

TRAIL CONTAINS MULTIPLE

ANTI-AGING PROPERTIES.

SNAIL SLIME IS ALSO

BECOMING A POPULAR

INGREDIENT IN BEAUTY

PRODUCTS, AND YOU FIND IT

IN MASKS, EYE CREAMS --

I'M SORRY -- AND SERUMS

RANGING IN PRICE FROM $6

TO $600.

OH!

Gordon: I KNOW THIS

IS SO YOU.

Terry: I LOVE MY

WRINKLES.

DOESN'T IT KIND OF MAKE

YOU DO THAT...WHEN YOU

WATCH THAT?

Gordon: YEAH.

IT MAKES ME WANT TO GO GET

A BOWL AND PUR POUR A LITTLE

BEER IN THAT.

Terry: ONE OF THE

VIDEO GUYS AND I WERE

SAYING, WHAT IS IN THAT?

Gordon: IT'S JUST THE

SNAIL SLIME.

Terry: THERE IS NO

"JUST."

Gordon: DO YOU WANT

SOME SLIME?

Terry: NO, I DON'T.

I AM VERY SURE.

YOU GO AHEAD AND TRY IT

AND LET US KNOW HOW THAT

WORKS, WILL YOU?

Gordon: I'M GOING TO

STAY AWAY FROM IT.

Terry: A SERIOUS

STORY COMING UP...A BABY'S

LIFE HANGS IN THE BALANCE.

TECHNICALLY, KATIE WAS

DEAD.

SHE WAS ASTOLEIC, MEANING

THE HEART WASN'T BEATING.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

BABY MIRACULOUSLY

Terry: AMY AND GARY

ASHLEY WERE BASKING IN THE

JOY OF THE BIRTH OF THEIR

BABY GIRL WHEN SUDDENLY

SOMETHING WENT VERY WRONG.

IN NO TIME, THIS COUPLE

WAS FACING A CRITICAL LIFE

OR DEATH DECISION THAT NO

PARENT SHOULD EVER HAVE TO

MAKE.

IT TOOK TWO YEARS FOR

US TO GET PREGNANT WITH

KATIE, AND WE WERE JUST SO

GRATEFUL TO GET HER.

SHE COMPLETED OUR FAMILY.

Reporter: KAT KATIE

ASHLEY WAS JUST SIX WEEKS

OLD WHEN HER PARENTS

NOTICED SOMETHING WAS

WRONG.

SHE WAS BREATHING REAL

HARD AND HEAVY AND IT WAS,

LIKE, THAT...

KATIE LOOKED LIKE SHE

WAS STRUGGLING TRYING TO

BREATHE.

Reporter: THEY RUSHED

KATIE TO THE E.R., WHERE

DOCTORS DISCOVERED SHE HAD

AN ACCELERATED HEART RATE.

AND SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

SUPERVENTRICULAR TACK

TACHICARDIA.

AND I WAS STANDING

THERE, AND THE DOORS

OPENED UP, AND HE SAID,

SHE'S NOT BREATHING.

SO I RUSHED TO HER ROOM,

AND THERE SHE WAS, TINY,

WHITE -- I MEAN, PALE AS A

GHOST.

AND THE NURSE HAD ALREADY

STARTED C.P.R. ON HER.

AND IT JUST KNOCKED THE

BREATH OUT OF ME.

WE PRAYED, I MEAN FROM THE

GUT, BEGGING GOD TO

PLEASE, PLEASE SAVE HER.

PLEASE SEND OUR BABY BACK.

AND IT WAS JUST

UNIMAGINABLE.

BUT WE HELD ON TO HOPE.

AND WE KEPT PRAYING.

Reporter: DR. ATHOS

COLOGNE ALSO PERFORMED

C.P.R. ON KATIE.

TECHNICALLY, KATIE WAS

DEAD.

THE HEART WASN'T BEATING,

AND THAT LASTED QUITE A

LONG TIME.

Reporter: WORD SPREAD

AMONG FRIENDS AND FAMILY

THAT KATIE WAS FIGHTING

FOR HER LIFE.

AMY'S COUSIN, MOOSE,

RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL.

DURING ALL OF THE

COMMOTION, I FELT AN URGE

TO GO DOWN TO THE

SANCTUARY THERE IN THE

HOSPITAL.

AND JUST AS CLEAR AS DAY,

I HEARD GOD SAY, KATIE IS

NOT GOING TO GO TODAY.

TODAY IS NOT HER DAY.

Reporter: FOR OVER AN

HOUR AND A HALF THE DOCTOR

AND HIS TEAM CONTINUED

C.P.R. ON KATIE'S LIFELESS

BODY.

THEY HAD DONE C.P.R.

FOR SO LONG, AND SHE STILL

WASN'T COMING BACK.

E SSO WHEN WE WERE SITTING

OUTSIDE THE DOORWAY,

KATIE'S DAD AND I

DISCUSSED CALLING OFF THE

CODE.

AT THAT POINT IN TIME, IT

WAS JUST TORTURE FOR HER

LITTLE BODY.

NORMALLY WE DO THAT FOR

ABOUT A HALF HOUR, AND

NORMALLY, AFTER THAT, WE

CONSIDER THE BRAIN TO HAVE

SUFFERED AND WE STOP.

BUT FOR SOME REASON WITH

KATIE, WE KEPT GOING.

AND THEN WE HEARD THEM

SAY IT, SHE HAS A

HEARTBEAT.

AND SHE WAS ALIVE.

SHE STILL WASN'T OUT OF

THE WOODS, AND WE KNEW IT,

BUT THERE WAS A LOT OF

HOPE THAT IT COULD

POSSIBLY BE -- THAT SHE

COULD POSSIBLY BE OKAY.

Reporter: KATIE WAS

ALIVE BUT WOULD REQUIRE

SURGERY FOR HER HEART

CONDITION.

AND HOW THE TRAUMA

AFFECTED HER BRAIN WAS

STILL UNKNOWN.

WE THOUGHT THAT WE HAD

SAVED HER LIFE BUT

PROBABLY THE BRAIN WAS

DAMAGED.

THERE WAS PROBABLY A

70% CHANCE THAT KATIE

WOULD HAVE SEVERE BRAIN

DAMAGE, TO THE POINT THAT

SHE WOULD BE UNABLE TO

FUNCTION.

I LEFT THE I.C.U., AND I

WENT OUTSIDE AND I SAT ON

A BENCH.

AND I JUST CRIED.

I WAS SO GRATEFUL TO GOD

FOR GIVING HER BACK, BUT

AT THE SAME TIME I WAS

STILL SO DEVASTATED.

Reporter: AMY'S BEST

FRIEND, JUDY, STARTED A

Facebook PAGE, ASKING

FOR PRAYER ON KATIE'S

BEHALF.

WE GOT RESPONSES FROM

ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.

WE GOT RESPONSES FROM

OUTSIDE OF THE COUNTRY.

WE HAD PRAYER CHAINS FROM,

I WOULD SAY A THOUSAND

CHURCHES.

IT WAS AMAZING.

Reporter: AFTER 48

HOURS, KATIE'S CONDITION

IMPROVED AND DOCTORS WERE

ABLE TO IMPLANT A

PACEMAKER.

AMY REMEMBERS THE DAY

KATIE WAS PUT BACK IN HER

ARMS.

IT WAS BETTER THAN

HOLDING YOUR BABY FOR THE

VERY FIRST TIME, TO BE

ABLE TO HOLD HER AGAIN.

BECAUSE THERE FOR A LITTLE

WHILE, WE WASN'T SURE WE

WAS GOING TO BE ABLE TO

HOLD HER AGAIN.

Reporter: AFTER 12

DAYS IN THE HOSPITAL,

KATIE RETURNED HOME.

TODAY SHE IS A HEALTHY,

ACTIVE, 5-YEAR-OLD, WITH

NO SIGNS OF BRAIN DAMAGE.

IF THERE IS SOMETHING

CALLED A MIRACLE, THIS IS

ONE OF THEM BECAUSE THAT

PART I CANNOT EXPLAIN.

HOW CAN HER BRAIN SURVIVE

SO INTACT.

EVERY TIME I SEE HER, I

CALL HER MY MIRACLE KID.

SHE IS DEFINITELY A

MIRACLE FROM GOD.

I MEAN, SHE WENT FROM A

TOTAL LIFELESS PERSON TO A

THRIVING, HAPPY YOUNG GIRL

NOW.

SHE PLAYS SOFTBALL, AND

SHE DANCES.

SHE'S SO SMART.

WHEN I SEE HER SCAR, IT

REMINDS ME OF HOW BLESSED

WE ARE.

AND I USED TO SAY THAT IT

WAS GOD'S FINGERPRINT.

I REALIZED LATER THAT THE

FINGERPRINT IS INSIDE HER

HEART.

Terry: I HOPE THAT

STORY IS ENCOURAGING TO

YOU IN WHATEVER PLACE OF

NEED YOU'RE IN TODAY.

YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT AMY SAID EARLY

ON THAT I THINK IS SO

SIGNIFICANT, SHE SAID, WE

JUST HELD ON TO HOPE.

YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES YOU'VE

GOT TO DO THAT.

SOMETIMES IN THE MIDST OF

WHAT LOOKS IMPOSSIBLE, YOU

HAVE TO HOLD ON TO HOPE.

YOU HAVE TO RUN THROUGH

YOUR HEART AND YOUR MIND

ALL OF THE THINGS OF WHO

GOD SAYS HE IS AGAIN.

YOU'VE GOT TO TRUST HIM

WITH THAT KIND OF TRUST,

THAT LET'S YOU EXHALE AND

GO, OKAY,ED GOD, GOD, YOU'VE GOT

THIS ONE.

BECAUSE THERE WAS NO

EXPLANATION FOR KATIE'S

RECOVERY.

THERE IS NO EXPLANATION

FOR THE FACT THAT SHE IS

FUNCTIONING FULLY TODAY IN

EVERY WAY.

AN HOUR AND A HALF OF

TRYING TO GET A HEARTBEAT.

THAT JUST DOESN'T EQUATE

WITH ANYTHING THAT SCIENCE

KNOWS.

BUT HERE IS KATIE TODAY,

AND SHE IS A HEALTHY

LITTLE GIRL.

> YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE

HAS SO MUCH TO SAY ABOUT

HOW GOD KNOWS US.

HOW HE KNOWS OUR NAME.

HE SAYS OUR NAME IS CARVED

IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND.

HE KNOWS THE NUMBER OF

HAIRS ON YOUR HEAD.

NOT A SPARROW FALLS FROM

THE TREE BUT THAT HE SEES

IT.

SO TODAY, I DON'T KNOW

WHAT IT IS THAT YOU'RE

SAYING, OH, GOD, I HAVE

THIS NEED AND I HAVE

NOWHERE ELSE TO TURN TO,

NO ONE ELSE TO GO TO --

THAT'S A PRAYER OF

DESPERATION.

GOD SEES YOU.

HE KNOWS YOUR NAME, AND HE

HEARS YOUR PRAYER TODAY.

AND WE WANT TO TAKE SOME

TIME TO PRAY TOGETHER WITH

YOU.

WHERE TWO OR MORE ARE

GATHERED, THERE HE IS IN

THE MIDST OF THEM.

WE'RE GATHERED IN HIS

NAME.

AND GOD SAYS WE HAVE

POSITION BECAUSE OF THAT

BEFORE HIS THRONE.

GORDON, I KNOW THERE ARE

MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE

WATCHING US TODAY WHO ARE

IN PERHAPS NOT AS

DESPERATE A SITUATION AS

KATIE'S PARENTS WERE, BUT

NONETHELESS, IT IS ALL

RELATIVE WHEN IT IS YOUR

OWN PAIN.

Gordon: WELL, THERE

IS -- YOU KNOW, THERE IS

NO DISASTER THAT GOD ISN'T

ABLE TO INTERVENE.

AND THE THING THAT YOU

POINTED OUT IN THAT STORY,

WHICH IS SO WONDERFUL, IS

THAT HELD ON TO HOPE.

NOW, FAITH IS THE EVIDENCE

OF THINGS HOPED FOR, THE

SUBSTANCE.

THE EVIDENCE THINGS OF NOT

SEEN, THE SUBSTANCE OF

THINGS HOPED FOR.

AND WHEN YOU HAVE THAT,

YOU GET OUT OF THE NATURAL

ORDER OF THINGS.

IN THE NATURAL ORDER OF

THINGS, THE DOCTORS ARE

SUPPOSED TO STOP AFTER A

HALF AN HOUR BECAUSE AT

THAT POINT IN TIME, THEY

THINK THERE IS GOING TO BE

BRAIN DAMAGE.

BUT IN GOD'S ORDER OF

THINGS, THEY KEPT GOING,

NOT ONLY FOR AN HOUR, BUT

FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF.

SO KEEP GOING.

HAVE THAT HOPE, NO MATTER

HOW BLEAK IT LOOKS.

I LIKE TO TELL PEOPLE, YOU

CAN NEVER BE TOO DEAD FOR

A RESURRECTION.

AND IF YOU HAVE THE HOPE

TO BELIEVE THAT ON THAT

DAY YOU'RE GOING TO STAND

ON THE EARTH AND SEE YOUR

SAVIOR FACE TO FACE, YOU

HAVE ALL THE FAITH YOU

NEED TO BELIEVE FOR A

MIRACLE TO GO AGAINST THE

NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS,

FOR GOD TO INTERVENE, FOR

HIS HAND TO COME DOWN FROM

HEAVEN AND DO MIRACLES.

THAT'S MIRACLE POWER.

THAT'S THE THINGS THE

DOCTORS CAN'T EXPLAIN.

NO ONE CAN EXPLAIN.

GOD INTERVENING AND

WONDERFUL THINGS HAPPEN.

SO BASED ON WHAT YOU JUST

SAW, REALIZE HE IS NO

RESPECTER OF PERSONS.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR

OTHERS, HE'LL DO FOR YOU.

GOD ALWAYS RESPONDS TO

FAITH.

HE IS LOOKING FOR IT.

HIS EYES GO TO AND FROW.

SO WE'RE GOING TO AGREE.

YOU AGREE, WHATEVER THE

ISSUE IS, IT IS NOT TOO

BIG FOR GOD.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY AND

YOU JOIN WITH US, AND

LET'S LET GOD DO ALL THE

REST.

GOD, WE LIFT PEOPLE'S

NEEDS TO YOU.

PEOPLE ARE PRAYING IN

HOSPITALS, THEY'RE PRAYING

IN YOUR HOMES -- THEY'RE

PRAYING AND THEIR HOPING.

THEY'RE HOPING.

AND THE SUBSTANCE OF

FAITH, THE SUBSTANCE OF

THINGS HOPED FOR, THE

EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT

SEEN.

AS YOU'RE SEEING THAT, YOU

RESPOND TO THAT.

YOU RESPOND TO FAITH.

SO, LORD, SHOW YOURSELF

STRONG TO THOSE WHO ARE

HOPING IN YOU.

HOPING AGAINST HOPE FOR

THE MIRACLE THAT YOU HAVE

ALREADY PROMISED, FOR BY

YOUR STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

THE PRICE IS ALREADY PAID.

IT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE.

WE SEE IT.

WE BELIEVE IT.

WE APPROPRIATE IT NOW.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE

HAD A SERIOUS HEART DEFECT

AND THE DOCTORS ARE SAYING

THEY CAN'T OPERATE AND

CAN'T OPERATE ANYMORE.

AND GOD IS ABLE TO HEAL

THAT HEART FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

HE IS ABLE TO LEAVE HIS

THUMBPRINT RIGHT ON YOUR

HEART NOW.

SO WE COMMAND IT TO COME

INTO NORMAL RHYTHM NOW.

NO MORE FLUTTERING, NO

MORE MISBEATS.

BEING NORMAL NOW.

AND BLOOD FLOW EASILY, AND

JUST LET THERE BE NO

INTERRUPTIONS, NO HICCUPS,

NO NOTHING.

IN JESUS' NAME BE RESTORED

NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAD

DAMAGE TO YOUR MOUTH.

I DON'T REALLY KNOW IF IT

IS A MEDICAL CONDITION OR

YOU'VE BEEN IN AN

ACCIDENT, BUT IT HAS

IMPACTED YOUR SPEECH AND

YOUR EATING, AND YOU'RE SO

FEARFUL -- YOU'VE ALMOST

GIVEN UP HOPE IT CAN BE

REVERSED.

GOD IS GOING TO HEAL YOUR

MOUTH COMPLETELY, AND

EVERYTHING WILL BE

RESTORED TO YOU IN JESUS'

NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE GOT

BLADDER CANCER, AND I

BELIEVE YOUR NAME IS RAY.

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU.

AND HE IS OPENING UP THE

DUCT THAT COMES OUT FROM

THE BLADDER.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

FINE AND NORMAL.

GO BACK AND BE TESTED.

WHAT YOU CONSIDERED TO BE

A DEATH SENTENCE, GOD IS

SAYING, I'M GIVING YOU A

LIFE SENTENCE.

I WANT YOU TO LIVE AND

LIVE ABUNDANTLY.

JUST RECEIVE IT RIGHT NOW

IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAD A

FALL, AND YOU ACTUALLY

HEARD A SNAP IN YOUR ANKLE

WHEN YOU FELL.

GOD IS HEALING THAT.

YOU DO HAVE A BREAK, BUT

IT IS BEING HEALED BY THE

LORD RIGHT NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

Gordon: OH, LORD, WE

THANK YOU.

WE THANK YOU FOR THE

MIRACLES THAT YOU DO, FOR

WHO YOU YOU ARE.

ARE.

WE BELIEVE IT NOW.

WE RECEIVE IT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN AND AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, SHARE YOUR GOOD

REPORT.

CALL US: 1-800-700-7000.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE'RE

HERE FOR YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

CALL.

> WELL, BORDER PATROL

AGENTS FACE DANGER ON A

DAILY BASIS IN ORDER TO

KEEP AMERICA SAFE.

BECAUSE THEY OFTEN

ENCOUNTER DRUG DEALERS AND

SMUGGLEGLERSMUGGLERS IN THE LINE OF

DUTY.

ERIK ROSALES TAKES US FOR

A RIDE WITH THE U.S.

BORDER PATROL.

Reporter: RIGHT HERE

IS THE RIO GRANDE RIVER.

BEHIND IT, MEXICO.

I'M STANDING IN THE U.S.

BORDER PATROL'S RIO GRANDE

VALLEY SECTOR, THE BUSIEST

SMUGGLING ROUTE FOR BOTH

NARCOTICS AND ILLEGAL

ALIENS.

MARIJUANA REMAINS THE DRUG

OF CHOICE FLOWING FROM

MEXICO, BUT AGENTS REPORT

AN UPTAKE IN HARDER

NARCOTICS.

ASSAULTS ON BORDER PATROL

AGENTS HAVE NEARLY

DOUBLED.

BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF

INFRASTRUCTURE IN THIS

AREA, THIS AREA IS

KNOWN -- SEES MORE OF THE

SYMPTOMS OF CHAOTIC

BORDER.

WE HAVE MORE FAILURES TO

YIELD, WE HAVE MORE STASH

HOUSES.

WE HAVE MORE ALIEN

TRAFFIC.

AND, OF COURSE, IN THIS

PARTICULAR AREA, MORE

NARCOTIC FLOW GOING INTO

THE UNITED STATES.

Reporter: THIS YEAR,

474 ASSAULTS TOOK PLACE

HERE.

CHERISH EVERY MOMENT

THAT YOU HAVE WITH YOUR

FAMILY.

BE SAFE.

ALWAYS WATCH YOUR BACK.

Reporter: TWO

ILLEGALS SHOT AND KILLED

HER HUSBAND, JAVIER, AS HE

PATROLLED THE BORDER.

SHE TELLS ME SHE REMAINS

STRONG FOR HER THREE BOYS,

AND SAYS WITHOUT HER FAITH

IN JESUS, SHE NEVER WOULD

HAVE SURVIVED.

I BELIEVE THAT MY

FAMILY RIGHT NOW IS AS

NORMAL AS POSSIBLE, GIVEN

OUR SITUATION.

AND WITHOUT GOD, IT

WOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED.

> THERHAPPENED.

THERE IS NO WAY WE WOULD

BE SUCH A STRONG FAMILY

WITHOUT HIM.

Reporter: THAT KIND

OF FAITH KEEPS MANY

APARTMENTS HERE GOING AS

THEY GO ABOUT THEIR DAILY

AND OFTEN DANGEROUS

ROUTINE.

YOU START SEEING ALL OF

THE TRASH THEY LEAVE

BEHIND, THE WATER BOTTLES,

SOME OF THEIR PERSONAL

BELONGINGS.

Reporter: AGENTS SAY

THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION

IS THAT MOST ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS CROSSING THE

BORDER HERE ARE FROM

MEXICO.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: THIS MAN

FROM HONDURAS SAYS HE

TRIED THREE TIEME TIMES TO CROSS

THE BORDER ILLEGALLY.

THE OTHER TOP COUNTRIES

ARE EL SALVADOR AND

GUATEMALA.

HE TRIED 12 TIMES.

AND EACH TIME THE MAN

HAS BEEN SENT BACK TO

GUATEMALA.

WE NEVER KNOW WHO WE'RE

ENCOUNTERING IN THE BUSH.

YOU COULD ENCOUNTER A

OFFENDER, A MURDERER,

SOMEBODY WHO HAS AN ACTIVE

WARRANT.

YOU NEVER KNOW UNTIL YOU

TAKE THEM BACK TO THE

STATION, AND YOU ROLL

THEIR FINGERPRINTS AND GET

THAT INFORMATION.

IN FISCAL YEAR 2017, WE

HAD ARRESTS FROM OVER 70

DIFFERENT NATIONS.

THIS YEAR-TO-DATE, WE'RE

WELL OVER 30 NATIONS OF

DIFFERENT NATIONALITIES

THAT WE'VE HAPPEN HENDED.

ReporterAPPREHENDED. Reporter: HE SAY
S HIS

AGENTS HAVE EVEN ARRESTED

KNOWN TERRORISTS.

TERRORISTS DON'T CARE WHO

OR WHAT THEY BRING IN AS

LONG AS THEY GET PAID.

THIS IS ONE OF THE HOUSES

WHERE U.S. BORDER PATROL

HAS UNCOVERED AS A DRUG

STASH HOUSE.

YOU CAN SEE SOME OF THE

RELIGIOUS FIGURES UP HERE,

WHERE SOMEONE WAS ACTUALLY

STAYING INSIDE.

THIS IS A BATHROOM JUST

BEHIND THE GARAGE, WHERE

THERE IS A HIDDEN

COMPARTMENT.

Reporter: THE ROOMS

ARE FILLED WITH CLOTHES

AND OTHER ITEMS.

AGENTS SAY THE SMUGGLERS

SIT ON THE DRUGS UNTIL IT

IS SAFE TO PASS THEM

THROUGHOUT THE U.S.

AND MANY ILLEGALS STILL

EXPLOIT LOOPHOLES IN THE

SYSTEM.

CRIMINAL ORGANIZATIONS

OFTEN SEND GANG MEMBERS AS

UNACCOMPANIED CHILDREN OR

WITH FAKE IDENTITIES.

MODIFIED DOCUMENTS THAT

ARE BEING ISSUED IN

CERTAIN COUNTRIES TO MAKE

A FAMILY, IF YOU WILL,

ESTABLISH THE PARENTHOOD

OF A CHILD.

AND THEN ONCE WE START

INTERVIEWING, WE FIND OUT

IT IS ALL FALSE CLAIMS.

Reporter: THESE

CHILDREN ARE TURNED OVER

TO HEALTH AND HUMAN

SERVICES.

BORDER SECURITY SAYS

SOMETIMES THEY'RE RELEASED

TO FAMILY MEMBERS ALREADY

HERE IN THE U.S.

THE TWIST: IF THEY'RE

GIVEN A COURT DATE, WHICH

SOME NEVER ATTEND.

THE ISSUE HAS CAUGHT THE

ATTENTION OF THE

PRESIDENT, WHICH HE

HIGHLIGHTEDEHIGHLIGHTED IN THE STATE

OF THE UNION, BY

INTRODUCING FAMILIES WHO

HAVE BEEN VICTIMS OF MS13

CRIMINAL ACTIVITY.

President Trump:

TONIGHT I'M CALLING ON

CONGRESS TO FINALLY CLOSE

THE DEADLY LOOPHOLES THAT

HAVE ALLOWED MS13 AND

OTHER CRIMINAL GANGS TO

BREAK INTO OUR COUNTRY.

WE HAVE PROPOSED NEW

LEGISLATION THAT WILL FIX

OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS AND

SUPPORT OUR I.C.E. AND

BORDER PATROL AGENTS SO

THIS CAN NEVER HAPPEN

AGAIN.

Reporter: DESPITE THE

DANGER, PALOA'S SONS HOPE

TO FOLLOW IN THEIR

FATHER'S FOOTSTEPS AND

BECOME BORDER PATROL

AGENTS.

AND SHE IS SEEKING JUSTICE

FOR HER HUSBAND'S KILLERS.

THEY ARE STILL IN COURT.

I STILL HAVEN'T BEEN

ABLE TO SLEEP COMFORTABLY.

Reporter: AGENTS ARE

ENCOUNTERING LARGER NUMBER

OF IMMIGRANTS AND EXPOSING

THEMSELVES TO GREATER

DANGER, BUT THEY SAY

THEY'LL CONTINUE TO RELY

ON THEIR TRAINING AND EACH

OTHER.

ERIK ROSALES, CBN NEWS,

SOMEWHERE ALONG THE

U.S.-MEXICO BORDER.

Gordon: WELL, THAT'S

AN INSIDE LOOK OF WHAT OUR

BORDER PATROL AGENTS GO

THROUGH ON A REGULAR

BASIS.

AND CERTAINLY I JOIN WITH

MANY OTHERS TO SAY, WE

NEED TO INCREASE THE

SECURITY THERE.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE

POTENTIAL FOR TERRORISTS

TO COME IN ACROSS THAT

BORDER, WHEN YOU LOOK AT

THE POTENTIAL FOR

CRIMINALS TO COME ACROSS

THAT BORDER, AND THEN THE

ABSOLUTE FLOOD OF

NARCOTICS COMING ACROSS

THAT BORDER -- HOW DO WE

GET MORE VIGILANT IN

PATROLLING IT?

HOW DO WE GET THIS TO A

POINT WHERE OUR BORDERS

ARE SECURE?

I THINK EVERY NATION HAS A

RIGHT TO SECURITY ON ITS

BORDERS, AND WE NEED IT

NOW.

> HERE IS A WORD FOR YOU

FROM PSALM 23: "EVEN WHEN

I WALK THROUGH THE DARKEST

VALLEY, I WILL NOT BE

AFRAID, FOR YOU ARE CLOSE

BESIDE ME.

YOUR ROD AND YOUR STAFF

PROTECT AND COMFORT ME."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN

TOMORROW.
