AWARD-WINNING GOSPEL STAR.

LARNELLE HARRIS LOOKS BACK

AT HIS STORIED CAREER.

PLUSES...AN EXCLUSIVE SIT

DOWN WITH THE SECRETARY OF

AGRICULTURE.

FORMER GOVERNOR SONNY

PERDUE TELLS CBN NEWS WHY

HE WANTS TO GO BACK TO OUR

ROOTS.

AND THEN...AN

EXCRUCIATING INJURY THAT

DOCTORS COULDN'T FIX.

SEE WHAT TOOK AWAY THE

PAIN ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Pat: A LOT OF

EXCITEMENT IN THE NEWS.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SEEMS TO

BE TONING DOWN HIS DEMANDS

FOR NORTH KOREA.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, THE

SUMMIT MAY NOT HAPPEN.

AND THE PRESIDENT HAS

SAID, OKAY, WELL, I CAN

TAKE THAT DENUCLEARIZATION

IN PHASES.

DOES THAT MEAN ANYTHING OR

NOT?

IT LOOKS LIKE KIM IS NOT

GOING TO SHOW UP.

AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES SHOULD NOT

TRAVEL HALF WAY AROUND THE

WORLD TO SINGAPORE TO COME

AWAY EMPTY.

HE HAS GOT TO HAVE

SOMETHING DEFINITE BEFORE

HE GOES, OTHERWISE HE IS

GOING TO BE HURT BADLY.

WENDY?

Wendy: ABSOLUTELY,

PAT.

SOME SAY THE PRESIDENT IS

MAKING A MAJOR CONCESSION

TO KIM JONG-UN, WHILE

OTHERS BELIEVE IT IS ALL

PART OF THE ART OF THE

DEAL.

BEN KENNEDY HAS MORE.

Reporter: IN AN OVAL

OFFICE MEETING WITH SOUTH

KOREA'S PRESIDENT ON

TUESDAY, PRESIDENT TRUMP

RAISED DOUBTS ABOUT THE

SUMMIT WITH KIM JONG-UN.

>

President Trump:

THERE IS A CHANCE IT WILL

WORK OUT.

AND THERE IS A VERY

SUBSTANTIAL CHANCE IT

WON'T WORK OUT.

AND THAT'S OKAY.

IT DOESN'T MEAN IT WON'T

WORK OUT OVER A PERIOD OF

TIME.

BUT IT MAY NOT WORK OUT

FOR JUNE 12th.

Reporter: THIS NEWS

COMES AFTER THE NORTH

REJECTED TO A ONE-SIDED

DEAL TO GIVE UP THEIR

NUCLEAR WEAPONS BEFORE

GETTING ANYTHING IN

RETURN.

BUT TRUMP SAYS, NOT SO

FAST.

HE IS WILLING TO MAKE AN

OFFER.

Prime Minister: I WILL

GUARANTEE HIS SAFETY, YES.

HE WILL BE SAFE.

HE WILL BE HAPPY.

HIS COUNTRY WILL BE RICH.

Reporter: WHILE OVER

SEAS, TRUMP COULD MAKE A

STOP IN JERUSALEM TO VISIT

THE NEW U.S. EMBASSY.

IT HAS BEEN A WEEK OF

HAMAS-LED RIOTS, WHICH

BEGS THE QUESTION, WILL

THE U.S. STEP IN TO HELP.

Reporter: I WANTED TO

ASK, AS THE VIOLENCE

CONTINUES TODAY, DOES THE

WHITE HOUSE HAVE ANY PLANS

TO MEET WITH THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY?

THERE ARE NO SCHEDULED

PLANS AT THIS POINT.

Reporter: ON TUESDAY

EVENING, THE PRESIDENT

RALLIED PRO-LIFE VOTERS

BEFORE THE MID-TERMS.

President Trump:

AMERICA HAS A PRO-LIFE

PRESIDENT.

Reporter: HE TOOK

CENTER STAGE AS THE FIRST

PRESIDENT TO GIVE THE

KEYNOTE ADDRESS AT THE

"CAMPAIGN FOR LIFE" GALA.

President Trump: FOR

DECADES AMERICAN TAXPAYERS

HAVE BEEN WRONGFULLY

FORCED TO SUBSIDIZE THE

ABORTION INDUSTRY THROUGH

TITLE 10 FEDERAL FUNDING.

SO TODAY WE HAVE KEPT

ANOTHER PROMISE: MY

ADMINISTRATION HAS

PROPOSED A NEW RULE TO

PROHIBIT TITLE 10 FUNDING

FROM GOING TO ANY CLINIC

THAT PERFORMS ABORTION.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: IN THE DAYS

AHEAD, THE PRESIDENT WILL

CONTINUE WORKING TO GET

THE NORTH KOREA SUMMIT

BACK ON TRACK.

TRUMP HAS MADE IT CLEAR TO

NORTH KOREA THAT NO NUKES

OR NO MEETING.

THAT BEING SAID, YES, THE

PRESIDENT WOULD LIKE TO

SEE AN ALL-IN DEAL,

INSISTING KIM GIVE UP HIS

NUCLEAR WEAPONS ALL AT

ONCE.

BUT HAS NOT RULED OUT

SOMETHING SHORT OF THAT.

BEN KENNEDY, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: OUR CHIEF

POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT

DAVID BRODY IS WITH US

NOW.

DAVID, IS THIS SUMMIT

GOING TO TAKE PLACE, IN

YOUR OPINION, OR NOT?

David: IT IS HARD TO

SAY AT THIS POINT, PAT.

MY GUESS IS, OR MY

THINKING, AT LEAST FROM AN

AANALYTICAL POINT OF VIEW,

YES, IT WILL TAKE PLACE.

I THINK IT IS ALL

POSTURING.

THE WHITE HOUSE TELLING ME

THE PRESIDENT IS WILLING

TO WALK AWAY FROM THE

SUMMIT FOR SURE, AND AT

THE SAME TIME, THE NORTH

KOREANS ARE LOOKING TO SEE

WHAT THEY CAN GET FROM

AMERICA, FROM THIS

ADMINISTRATION, BEFORE

JUNE 12th EVEN ARRIVES.

SO A LOT OF THIS IS THAT

BACK AND FORTH THAT WE SEE

ALL OF THE TIME IN

NEGOTIATIONS.

THIS IS DONALD TRUMP'S

BREAD AND BUTTER, THE ART

OF THE DEAL.

YOU NOTICE WHAT HE ALWAYS

SAYS, HE SAYS, IF THE

MEETING HAPPENS, GREAT.

IF IT DOESN'T HAPPEN,

THAT'S FINE, TOO, IT'S

OKAY.

HE DOES THAT ON PURPOSE.

CLEARLY HE IS SIGNALLING

TO SAY, LOOK, I DON'T WANT

TO SHOW YOU I'M DESPERATE

AT ALL FOR THIS MEETING,

BECAUSE IF YOU SHOW

DESPERATION, THEN THE

PROBLEMS ENSUE.

Pat: HE LAID SOME OF

THE BLAME ON CHINA, ON

KIM'S CHANGE.

WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT

THAT?

David: IT IS

INTERESTING.

THIS RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN

PRESIDENT XI OF CHINA AND

THE PRESIDENT IS A VERY

FRIENDLY RELATIONSHIP, ON

THE PERSONAL SIDE OF IT.

OF COURSE, WE W WHEN WE GET

INTO TRADE, THAT'S A WHOLE

DIFFERENT BALLGAME.

I THINK THERE IS A BIT OF

MANEUVERING GOING ON ON

BOTH SIDES.

AND THE QUESTION IS: WHAT

DO THEY DO WITH CHINA

BECAUSE THEY CLEARLY NEED

CHINA WHEN IT COMES FROM

NORTH KOREA.

SO I THINK THIS HAS ALWAYS

BEEN A VERY DELICATE

BALANCING ACT FOR THE

WHITE HOUSE.

IT HAS FRUSTRATED THE

PRESIDENT TO A DEGREE

BECAUSE HE HAS THIS GOOD

RELATIONSHIP WITH

PRESIDENT XI, AND HE WANTS

IT TO WORK OUT, BUT AT

THIS POINTS THER POINT THERE IS WAY

TOO MUCH NOT KNOWN.

AND PRESIDENT TRUMP

DOESN'T WANT TO SHOW HIS

HAND TOO MUCH RIGHT NOW.

Pat: HE IS CONCERNED

ABOUT THERE WAS SOME

PROFESSOR EMBEDDED IN HIS

CAMPAIGN WHO WAS ACTUALLY

AN F.B.I. INFORM MANT.

INFORMANT.

HOW SERIOUS IS HE ABOUT

GOING AFTER THE F.B.I.?

David: HE IS PRETTY

SERIOUS ABOUT IT, PAT.

ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL

THINGS THAT IS HAPPENING

WITH CBN IS WE HAVE SOME

SERIOUS ACCESS OVER THERE,

INSIDE THE WEST WING.

I CAN TELL YOU WHEN I'M

OVER THERE, OBVIOUSLY BEN

KENNEDY, AND JENNA BROWDER

OVER THERE ON THE WEST

WING AS WELL -- I CAN TELL

YOU, TALKING WITH FOLKS

WITHIN THE WHITE HOUSE,

THE PRESIDENT IS DEAD

SERIOUS ABOUT THIS.

THEIR VIEW OF IT IS THEY

WANT TO SEE TRANSPARENCY.

THEY WANT TO SAY, HEY,

THIS ISN'T JUST ABOUT

DONALD TRUMP'S CAMPAIGN.

THIS IS ABOUT, IN ESSENCE,

DEMOCRACY, AND WHAT IT

STANDS FOR.

AND WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN THE NEXT TIME

AROUND FOR SOMEONE ELSE'S

CAMPAIGN.

THE LIBERAL MEDIA WILL SAY

ALL DONALD TRUMP CARES

ABOUT IS HIS CAMPAIGN, BUT

THE WHITE HOUSE DOESN'T

SEE IT THAT WAY, AND THE

PRESIDENT DOESN'T SEE IT

THAT WAY.

THEY ARE VERY CONCERNED

ABOUT TRANSPARENCY ON THIS

ISSUE.

THAT'S WHAT THEY WANT TO

MAKE SURE HAPPENS HERE.

Pat: THE VICE

PRESIDENT SAID IT IS TIME

TO END THIS RUSSIAN PROBE.

IS THERE ANY CHANCE

THEY'RE GOING TO WRAP IT

UP, AS GIULIANI HAS

INDICATED, BY SEPTEMBER.

David: THAT SEEMS TO

BE PRETTY DOUBTFUL AT THIS

POINT.

I DON'T SEE IT WRAPPING

UP.

I KNOW THEY'VE BROUGHT

GIULIANI IN, AND FOLKS

BELIEVE HE HAS BEEN DOING

A REALLY GOOD JOB AS

RELATES TO BEING FORCEFUL

OUT THERE.

I KNOW HE HAS BEEN HIT IN

THE MEDIA ABOUT SOME OF

THE FACTS THAT HAVE GONE

ASTRAY.

EVEN SOME OF THE FOLKS IN

THE WHITE HOUSE ADMITTING,

HEY, HE JUST GOT ON BOARD,

BUT THE TRUTH OF THE

MATTER IS ULTIMATELY THEY

THINK RUDY GIULANI IS

DOING A VERY GOOD JOB.

HERE IS THE INTERESTING

PART HERE: IT IS NOT JUST

JULIANNA.

RUDY GIULANI.

THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS

SECRETARY IS SAYING IT IS

TIME, IN ESSENCE, TO END

THIS INVESTIGATION.

YOU'RE SEEING A BROADER

SPECTRUM OF CONSERVATIVES

SAYING THAT, WHICH BODES

WELL FOR THE WHITE HOUSE

BECAUSE IT IS NOT JUST

TRUMP, PENCE, AND THE

ADMINISTRATION.

Pat: HAVE THERE BEEN

ANY LEAKS ON WHAT THE

REPORTS ARE GOING TO SHOW

ON THIS THING OF HILLARY

CLINTON AND HOW THE F.B.I.

IS GOING TO HANDLE THAT?

David: NOT IN TERMS

OF LEAKS.

BUT THERE IS A SENSE

INSIDE THE REPORT, IT WILL

SHOW THAT THE F.B.I., IN

ESSENCE, WAS DORMANT OR

DID NOT DO MUCH AT ALL

WHEN IT CAME TO THIS

INVESTIGATION.

TALKING TO SOME WHITE

HOUSE SOURCES THIS

MORNING, THEY BELIEVE

THERE IS A CLEAR DOUBLE

STANDARD.

THEY HOPE THAT I.G. REPORT

WILL SHOW WHAT THAT DOUBLE

STANDARD IS.

BASICALLY WITH DONALD

TRUMP, IT IS EVERYBODY

AFTER DONALD TRUMP AND THE

CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA AND

ALL OF THAT.

BUT WHEN IT COMES TO

HILLARY CLINTON AND THE

E-MAIL SCANDAL, THIS I.G.

REPORT WILL SHOW IT WAS A

WHOLE DIFFERENT BALLGAME

THE WAY THE F.B.I. AND THE

ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE

WENT AFTER, OR DID NOT GO

AFTER, HILLARY CLINTON.

THEY WANT TO EXPOSE THIS

DOUBLE STANDARD, AND THAT

IS THE VIEW INSIDE THE

WHITE HOUSE.

Pat: ANY CRIMINAL

INVOLVEMENT, DO YOU THINK?

ANY CRIMINAL CHARGES GOING

TO BE MADE AGAINST THEM?

David: IT IS HARD TO

SAY.

THERE IS SOME OF THIS --

IF YOU WANT TO CALL IT AN

OFF THE RECORD PUSH, TO

SEE THAT DONE.

HAVING SAID THAT, TREY

GOUDY AND SOME OF THE

LEADERS JUST WANT TO GET

TO THE BOTTOM OF ALL OF

THIS.

THERE IS NO SENSE OF THAT

RIGHT NOW, PAT.

Pat: DAVID, THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US.

DAVID BRODY, WHO IS DOING

A SUPERB JOB.

WENDY?

Wendy: UP NEXT, THE

SECRETARY OF AGRICULTURE

SPEAKS HIS MIND AND LIVES

HIS FAITH.

WE WERE REALLY

LITERALLY LIVING THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE, THAT'S THE

BEST FORM OF GOVERNMENT

YOU CAN HAVE.

Wendy: JENNIFER

WISHON GOES ONE-ON-ONE

WITH THIS POLITICAL

LEGEND, SONNY PERDUE.

Pat: THE UNITED

STATES MAKES A BIG DEAL

OUT OF SOYBEANS.

THE EXPORT OF SOYBEANS IS

ONE OF OUR BIGGEST,

BIGGEST CRASH CROPS, AND

THE BIGGEST SOURCES OF

FOREIGN EXCHANGE.

PROBABLY NEXT TO

AIRPLANES, SOYBEANS RANK

WAY UP AT THE TOP.

SO IS OUR SPAT WITH CHINA

CHINA -- WE'VE PUT VARIOUS

DUTIES ON CHINESE EXPORTS,

AND THEY CAN RETALIATE

AGAINST US WITH

AGRICULTURAL IMPORT

DUTIES.

SO IT IS INTERESTING TO

HEAR WHAT THE SECRETARY OF

AGRICULTURE THINKS.

YOU THINK, HE'S NOT IN THE

NEWS ALL THAT MUCH, BUT I

THINK IT IS IMPORTANT WE

UNDERSTAND FROM

AGRICULTURE SECRETARY

SONNY PERDUE -- WHAT IS

HIS BACKGROUND, AND WHAT

DOES HE THINK ABOUT THIS

CHINESE THREAT.

Reporter: DESPITE A

STORIED CAREER IN

POLITICS, SONNY PERDUE

FEELS RIGHT AT HOME HERE.

HE GREW UP ON A FARM IN

MIDDLE GEORGIA, WHERE HE

FED CALVES, MOWED FIELDS

AND BAILED HAY.

LIKE A GROWING SEASON, YOU

COULD SAY THIS 71-YEAR-OLD

HAS COME FULL CIRCLE.

I CAN REMEMBER BEING IN

THE HAY FIELDS AS A

10-YEAR-OLD AND

12-YEAR-OLD, AND WORKING

UNTIL 5:00, AND THEN

PUTTING ON MY LITTLE

LEAGUE UNIFORM AND GO PLAY

GAMES.

Reporter: IT WAS

AROUND THAT TIME WHEN HE

INVITED JESUS INTO HIS

LIFE.

MY MOTHER MAY HAVE

KNOWN I WAS PERFECT, BUT

GOD KNEW I WASN'T.

HE KNEW I WAS SINFUL, JUST

LIKE EVERY OTHER PERSON

BORN, AND I NEEDED A

SAVIOR.

AT 11 YEARS OLD, I

RECOGNIZED THAT AND

SUBMITTED TO THAT NEED FOR

SOMEONE TO PAY FOR MY

SINS.

Reporter: IN GEORGIA,

PERDUE IS A POLITICAL

LEGEND.

AFTER LEADING STATE SENATE

AS A DEMOCRAT, HE BECAME A

REPUBLICAN, AND THEN

AGAINST ALL ODDS WON THE

GOVERNOR'S MANSION,

BECOMING THE FIRST

REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR OF

GEORGIA.

HE ASKED REPORTERS --

IF YOU READ THE SERMON

ON THE MOUND, LOVE, JOY,

PEACE, COMPASSION,

PATIENCE -- THOSE KIND OF

THINGS -- WHAT ARE THOSE

QUALITIES THAT DISQUALIFY

SOMEONE FOR GOVERNING?

WE AS CHRISTIANS HAVE

FAILED TO LIVE THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE.

THAT'S WHY PEOPLE WORRY

WHEN WE GET INTO OFFICE

BECAUSE SOMETIMES WE'RE NO

DIFFERENT.

BUT WHEN WE'RE LITERALLY

LIVING THE CHRISTIAN LIFE,

THAT'S THE BEST FORM OF

GOVERNMENT YOU CAN HAVE.

Reporter: ONE YEAR

INTO THE JOB, HE HAS

ALREADY VISITED NEARLY 40

STATES.

HELLO.

Reporter: AND WHEN

THE SECRETARY COMES TO

TOWN, IT IS A PRETTY BIG

DEAL.

DESPITE THE MANY IMPORTANT

ROLES IT PLAYS, LIKE

REGULATING THE FOOD WE

EAT, USDA ISN'T USUALLY A

BIG DEAL.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS AN

INTERESTING NEGOTIATOR,

AND SOMETIMES LEADS WITH

VERY MUCH AGGRESSION, BUT

HAS THE ABILITY TO GET

PEOPLE'S ATTENTION.

WHILE FARMERS ARE ANXIOUS

OVER TRADE DISPUTES, OVER

RENEWAL FUEL STANDARD,

ETHANOL, AND THOSE KIND OF

THINGS, LABOR AND ISSUES,

THEY ARE STILL SOME OF

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S MOST

LOYAL REPORTERS.

Reporter: PERDUE IS

RUNNING TO, QUOTE, "SLASH

REGULATIONS."

HE SAYS RED TAPE IS A TOP

COMPLAINT AMONG FARMERS.

WE HAVE TO HAVE A

C.F.O. ON STAFF TO DO

THAT.

AND FARMERS -- IT IS

TYPICALLY A FARMER AND HIS

WIFE TRYING TO COMPLY WITH

THESE REGULATIONS AND

PERMITS AND REPORTS AND

ALL THOSE KIND OF THINGS,

WITHOUT VIOLATING THE LAW,

AND IT IS A VERY THIN LINE

TO WALK SOMETIMES.

Reporter: HE CAUGHT

GRIEF WHEN HE RECOMMENDED

REPLACING FOOD STAMPS WITH

SO-CALLED HARVEST BOXES OF

NON-PERISHABLE FOODS.

HE IS IN FAVOR OF

TIGHTENING WORK

REQUIREMENTS FOR FOOD

STAMP RECIPIENTS.

AND HE HAS WADE INTO THE

IMMIGRATION DEBATE, USING

HIS AUTHORITY TO MAKE THE

GUEST WORKER PROGRAM MORE

FLEXIBLE FOR FARMERS.

WE DON'T WANT PEOPLE

HAVING TO LIVE IN SHADOWS

THERE.

WE DON'T WANT FARMERS

DOING THINGS ILLEGALLY.

Reporter: HE FINDS

HIMSELF IN AN INTERESTING

NEW ROLE: AS AN ELDER

STATESMAN, SEASONED

REPUBLICAN, SERVING IN THE

CABINET OF A RENEGADE.

HE IS AN INTERESTING

FELLOW.

HE IS KIND OF ALL

BUSINESS.

WHAT I LIKE TO SAY ABOUT

HIM, HE IS DECISIVE.

HE KNOWS WHERE HE WANTS TO

GO.

HE IS A SOONER RATHER THAN

LATER KIND OF BUSINESS

GUY, WHICH I UNDERSTAND, I

GET.

BUT HE HAS THE ESSENCE OF

ANY GOOD, SUCCESSFUL

LEADER.

YOU WOULD THINK HE HAS

TOTALLY MADE UP HIS MIND

OF WHAT HE IS GOING TO DO,

BUT HE ALWAYS HAD A LITTLE

BACK DOOR LEFT OPEN.

IF YOU GO AROUND, KNOCK ON

IT POL POLITELY AND GIVE HIM

THE FACTS, HE IS WILLING

TO CHANGE HIS MIND.

Reporter: ONCE A

WEEK, HE GATHERS WITH AS

MANY AS 10 OF HIS FELLOW

CABINET MEMBERS TO PRAY

AND STUDY THE BIBLE, LET

BY RALPH DROLENGER.

IT IS NOT JUST CHECKING

THE BOX.

WE ACTUALLY GO THROUGH THE

BIBLE VERSE BY VERSE.

AND WE CHALLENGE

OURSELVES.

THE MAIN THING WE

CHALLENGE OURSELVES ON IS

TAKING THE WORD OF GOD AND

MAKING SURE WE ARE LIVING

IT, NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT

IT.

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: ISN'T THAT

REFRESHING?

WE WANT TO LIVE THE WORD.

WE'RE NOT JUST TALKING

ABOUT IT; WE LIVE IT.

AND WHEN THEY DO LIVE IT,

IT IS THE BEST FORM OF

GOVERNMENT KNOWN TO MAN.

I'VE JUST BEEN READING A

BOOK ABOUT THE FACT THAT

WE DIDN'T HAVE A KING FOR

SO MANY YEARS.

ISRAEL DIDN'T HAVE A KING.

ISRAEL HAD GOD AS THEIR

LEADER.

AND HE GAVE THE RULES AND

THE PEOPLE WERE FREE.

THERE WAS NO BUREAUCRACY

AND BURDENSOME TAXES AND

THINGS LIKE THAT.

SONNY PERDUE, ISN'T HE

INTERESTING?

Wendy: YEAH.

HE IS A LEGEND.

HE HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A

LONG TIME.

I DIDN'T REALIZE HE WAS

SUCH A STRONG CHRISTIAN.

> UP NEXT, A MAN WITH

EXCRUCIATING NECK PAIN AND

GOT NO RELIEF FROM HIS

DOCTORS.

THERE WERE TIMES WHEN I

WOULD COME HOME CRYING,

AND I WOULD JUST FALL ON

THE COUCH.

YEAH, IT WAS REALLY,

REALLY BAD.

Wendy: WATCH HOW HE

GETS SUPER NATURALLY

HEALED.

PLUS...PAT AND I WILL BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS, SO GET READY TO

RECEIVE YOUR MIRACLE,

AFTER THIS.

Pat: REGENT

UNIVERSITY JUST HAD THE

LARGEST GRADUATION IN ITS

HISTORY.

THE FIRST TIME EVER

GRADUATES IN CYBER

SECURITY AND ALSO

GRADUATES IN NURSING.

THERE ARE, RIGHT NOW, 129

AREAS OF STUDY, BOTH

ONLINE AND ON CAMPUS, WITH

UNPARALLELLED LEADERSHIP

TRAINING.

WE HAVE FLEXIBLE

EIGHT-WEEK AND 15-WEEK

COURSES.

AND THEY'RE ENROLLING --

REGENT IS ENROLLING RIGHT

NOW FOR THIS NEXT SERIES

OF COURSES.

THE NUMBER IS 866-

866-910-7615.

OR YOU CAN LOG INTO

REGENT. EDU.

AND IT IS THE MOST

EXCITING UNIVERSITY IN THE

WORLD.

WER Wendy: AND SUCH A

GORGEOUS UNIVERSITY.

Pat: IT IS BEAUTIFUL,

GORGEOUS.

IT IS REALLY LOVELY, WITH

ALL OF THE FLOWERS.

THE GRADUATION WAS

GORGEOUS.

129 DIFFERENT AREAS OF

STUDY.

Wendy: I'VE SEEN DEER

OUT ON THE LAWN SOMETIMES.

Pat: THERE ARE DEER.

WE DON'T ADVERTISE DEER,

BUT WE DO HAVE DEER.

AND EVEN FOXES.

Wendy: WELL, DONALD

ONDI HAD EXCRUCIATING PAIN

IN HIS NECK AND JAW FOR

MONTHS.

NONE OF THE DOCTORS HE SAW

AND NONE OF THE PILLS THEY

PRESCRIBED GAVE HIM

RELIEF.

HIS PROBLEMS BEGAN ONE DAY

WHEN HE VOLUNTEERED TO

OPERATE A SNOWPLOW.

THE SNOW WAS COMING

DOWN.

IT WAS TREACHEROUS.

IT WASN'T STOPPING.

SO THEY PUT THE CALL OUT

THERE, IF ANYBODY ELSE

COULD HELP AND VOLUNTEER

TO DO THE PLOWING.

THEY NEEDED ANYBODY

BECAUSE THE SNOW WAS NOT

STOPPING.

Reporter: DONALD

DIDN'T HESITATE TO JUMP

INTO A TRUCK AND HELP

CLEAR THE PARKING LOT AT

THE HOSPITAL WHERE HE

WORKS.

BUT COMING FROM THE

ELECTRICAL DEPARTMENT, HE

HAD NEVER WORKED A

SNOWPLOW AND KEPT HITTING

THE CURBS.

I GUESS THE MORE

EXPERIENCED GUYS NOW TO

RAISE THE PLA PLOW WHEN THEY

COME TO THE CURB.

I WAS BEATING MYSELF UP.

Reporter: HE STARTED

HAVING MINOR NECK AND JAW

PAIN THAT WENT AWAY AFTER

JUST A FEW WEEKS.

BUT THEN MORE THAN A YEAR

LATER, IN THE SUMMER OF

2017, THE PAIN CAME BACK

WITH A VENGEANCE.

THERE WERE TIMES WHEN I

WOULD COME HOME CRYING,

AND I WOULD JUST FALL ON

THE COUCH.

I WOULD SAY, MARY, BRING

ME A BLOCK OF ICE OR A

HEATING PAD.

I DID SEE DOCTORS, BUT THE

PAIN WAS INCREASING.

IT WASN'T GETTING BETTER.

ALL THEY DID WAS PRESCRIBE

PILLS.

MUSCLE RELAXERS AND

SLEEPING PILLS, PAIN

PILLS -- MY WHOLE LIFE WAS

MESSED UP.

I COULDN'T PLAN ANYTHING

BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW IF

IT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

YEAH, IT WAS REALLY,

REALLY BAD.

Reporter: DONALD

DECIDED EARLY ON TO TRUST

GOD FOR HEALING.

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

PAIN, I'D SAY, FATHER,

THIS PAIN IS NOT GOING TO

STOP ME FROM BELIEVING IN

YOU.

I'M NOT GOING TO LET THIS

PAIN DESTROY MY WALK WITH

YOU.

Reporter: THEN ON

CHRISTMAS DAY OF THAT SAME

YEAR, DONALD WAS AT A

FAMILY GATHERING WHEN THE

PAIN BECAME SO UNBEARABLE,

HE RAN INTO A BATHROOM AND

CRIED OUT TO GOD IN

DESPERATION.

I SAID, GOD, THIS HAS

GOT TO STOP.

ESPECIALLY ON A DAY LIKE

CHRISTMAS.

THIS HAS GOT TO STOP.

Reporter: DONALD SAYS

A FEW DAYS LATER, GOD

ANSWERED HIS PRAYERS.

I WATCHED "THE 700

CLUB" ON THURSDAY MORNING.

GORDON ROBERTSON HAD A

WORD.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE WITH NERVE

PAIN ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF

YOUR FACE, THAT GOES UP

INTO THE UPPER RIGHT SIDE

OF YOUR SKULL.

GOD IS JUST TAKING THAT

NERVE PAIN AWAY FROM YOU.

AND I GO, WAIT A

MINUTE, THAT SOUNDS LIKE

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH ME.

IT WASN'T JUST ME WATCHING

A TV SHOW.

THAT'S FOR ME.

Reporter: OVER THE

NEXT WEEK, THE PAIN

SUBSIDED UNTIL IT WAS

COMPLETELY GONE.

AND IT HAS NEVER COME

BACK.

TO BE PAIN-FREE, TO

REALLY BE PAIN-FREE, I GOT

TO UNDERSTAND WHAT PAIN

IS.

BUT GOD SHOWED ME HE CAN

TAKE AWAY PAIN AND HE CAN

HEAL.

HE IS THE HEALER.

AND IT IS PART OF HIS

COVENANT THAT HE HAS FOR

EACH OF US.

HE IS THE ONE WHO DOES THE

MIRACLES, YES.

YES.

Wendy: GOD CAN TAKE

AWAY YOUR PAIN.

GOD CAN HEAL.

HE IS THE ONE WHO DOES

MIRACLES.

PAT?

Pat: ISN'T THAT

BEAUTIFUL.

LISTEN, HERE IS ONE:

MARIA, SHE E-MAILED US AND

SAID, "I'VE BEEN SUFFERING

FROM CHRONIC SUICIDE

DEPRESSION FOR THE LAST

EIGHT YEARS.

MY 12-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER

WENT HOME TO BE WITH THE

LORD, LOST THE BATTLE WITH

LEUKEMIA.

ON MAY 21st, WHILE I WAS

WATCHING YOUR PROGRAM, PAT

AND WENDY WERE PRAYING FOR

WENDY.

AND WENDY SAID, QUOTE,

"YOU'RE TIRED,WITH CHRONIC

FATIGUE, AND THIS IS THE

DAY YOU'VE BEEN WAITING

FOR.

PUT ON SOME PRAISE MUSIC.

YOU'VE BEEN HEALED."

AND MARIA SAID, "I CLAIMED

THE WORD AND SINCE THEN I

HAVE BEEN FREED FROM THAT

DARK CLOUD OF DEPRESSION."

Wendy: THIS ONE SAYS,

"ON MAY 14, 2018, HE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB"

WHEN YOU HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, PAT.

YOU SAID, CHARLIE, YOU'VE

GOT A SHAKING.

IT IS NOT PARKINSON'S, BUT

IT IS, LIKE, PARKINSON'S,

AND RIGHT NOW GOD IS

BURNING OUT THE THINGS

THAT ARE CAUSING THE

PROBLEM.

YOU ARE BEING HEALED RIGHT

NOW.

YOUR SHAKING WILL STOP IN

THE NAME OF JESUS RIGHT

NOW."

CHARLIE CLAIMED THAT WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE, AND HE WAS

HEALED OF THAT SHAKING,

PAT.

Pat: I HAVE TO

CONFESS, I DO NOT KNOW

CHARLIE, I DID NOT KNOW

CHARLIE, BUT GOD KNOWS

CHARLIE.

AND IT WAS SHAKING -- NOT

PARKINSON'S, BUT JUST

SHAKING.

Wendy: I CAN'T

IMAGINE GOING THROUGH

THAT, BUT GETTING THE

RELIEF HE NEEDED SO

DESPERATELY.

Pat: LET'S PRAY.

I REALLY ENJOY PRAYING FOR

PEOPLE.

I ENJOY SEEING GOD DO

MIRACLES.

I WAS THINKING TODAY, YOU

KNOW, WE HAVE A COURSE IN

THE SCHOOL NOW, AND I SAID

I WANT EVERY ONE OF THEM

TO TAKE A COURSE IN

COSMOLOGY SO THEY CAN

UNDERSTAND THE ACTUAL

SCIENCE.

I'M THINKING OF THE

GREATNESS OF THE UNIVERSE

AND THE GREATNESS OF GOD.

WHEN WE PRAY, WE'RE

TOUCHING INTO THE POWER

THAT CREATED THE WHOLE

UNIVERSE.

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

SOME MICKEY MOUSE LITTLE

DEITY THAT IS MADE BY SOME

CRAFTSMAN.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

ONE WHO CREATED

EVERYTHING.

SO WHEN WE TALK TO HIM AND

HE TALKS TO US, WE CAN

EXPECT MIRACLES.

SO WE'RE GOING TO JOIN

HANDS AND WE'RE GOING TO

BELIEVE GOD.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST.

AND WE PRAY TOGETHER.

AND I THANK YOU FOR THE

HEALING THAT THAT MAN

CHARLIE HAD.

I THANK YOU FOR HEALING

THAT SHAKING.

I THANK YOU FOR THIS.

I THANK YOU FOR THESE

OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD

FEAR AND DEPRESSION AND

CONFUSION.

Wendy: THANK YOU,

LORD.

Pat: OH, YOUR THROAT,

IT IS ALMOST LIKE IT IS

CLOSED UP AND YOU CAN'T

SWALLOW.

AND IT'S LIKE GRAINS ON

EITHER SIDE.

JUST TOUCH YOUR THROAT

RIGHT NOW.

GOD HAS JUST HEALED YOU.

Wendy: GOD IS

TOUCHING FEET RIGHT NOW.

IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING GOING

ON WITH YOUR FEET, PUT

YOUR HANDS RIGHT THERE.

GOD IS HEALING YOU.

THERE IS SOMEONE NAMED

JESSICA, AND YOU HAVE A

PROBLEM WITH YOUR FOOT,

AND GOD IS TOUCHING YOU

RIGHT NOW.

Pat: THE POWER OF GOD

IS COMING DOWN INTO

PEOPLE'S LIVES RIGHT NOW.

THE GLORY OF THE LORD IS

BEING MANFESTOED RIGH MANIFESTED RIGHT

NOW.

GOD, SEND THE ANGELS AND

TOUCH PEOPLE IN THIS

AUDIENCE RIGHT NOW.

MAY THE ANOINTING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT BE UPON YOU IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

GIVE US A CALL AND LET US

KNOW WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR

YOU.

LISTEN, WITH GOD ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE.

THAT'S WHAT JESUS SAID.

HE SAID, IPEOPLE CAME TO HIM AND

SAID, IF YOU CAN, CAST OUT

THIS DEMON.

AND HE SAID, IF I CAN?

IF I CAN?

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO

HIM WHO BELIEVE.

SO BELIEVE THE LORD.

GIVE US A CALL AND LET US

KNOW WHAT YOUR OTHER

PRAYER REQUESTS ARE.

IT IS AN EASY NUMBER TO

REMEMBER: 1-800-700-7000.

YOU > OKAY.

WE'VE GOT AN INTERESTING

MUSICAL GUEST NEXT.

Wendy: THE LEGENDARY

LARNELLE HARRIS SINGS LIVE

FOR US.

THE FIVE-TIME

GRAMMY-WINNER ALSO TALKS

ABOUT HIS NEW MEMOIR.

VERY INTERESTING.

AND THAT'S COMING UP LATER

MEMOIR, REVEALING

LITTLE-KNOWN FACTS ABOUT

HIS VERY STORIED LIFE.

Reporter: LARNELLE

HARRIS HAS HELPED TO

DEFINE A GENERATION OF

CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN

MUSIC.

WITH 19 NUMBER ONE SONGS,

HIS MUSIC CAREER HAS

SPANNED FIVE DECADES AND

IS STILL GOING STRONG.

HIS STORY STARTED IN THE

HILLS OF KENTUCKY AS THE

SON OF A BOOTLEGGER.

HE WATCHED HIS FATHER

TAKEN OFF TO JAIL, BATTLED

RACIAL TENSION, AND EVEN

LOST HIS VOICE, BUT CHOSE

TO KEEP SINGING FOR GOD.

IN HIS MEMOIR, "SHAPED

NOTES," LARNELLE SHARES

HIS MOST PAINFUL AND

TRIUMPHANT MEMORIES FROM

HIS CHILDHOOD AND CAREER,

THAT HELPED SHAPE HIM INTO

THE MAN HE IS TODAY.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

LARNELLE.

IT'S SO GOOD TO SEE YOU.

IT IS SO GOOD TO BE

HERE.

ONE OF THE MOST MEMORABLE

TIMES WAS WHEN I CAME TO

SHARE IN PAT'S BIRTHDAY.

I FORGET WHICH CENTURY IT

WAS.

[LAUGHTER]

HE IS STILL KICKING AND

DOING GOOD.

Wendy: HE IS DOING

GREAT.

YOU'LL HAVE TO COME BACK

FOR THE 90th.

I WILL.

Wendy: I'M LOVING

YOUR BOOK, "SHAPED NOTES,"

AND YOUR DADDY WAS A

BOOTLEGGER, AFTER

PROHIBITION, AND YOUR

GRANDFATHER WAS ALSO IN

THE MOONSHINE BUSINESS.

BUT THEY WENT TO CHURCH?

YOU KNOW, THEY DID

BECAUSE IT WAS IMPORTANT.

AND YET MY MOM ACTUALLY

PRAYED MY DAD INTO THE

KINGDOM.

AND AS A LITTLE BOY, I

DIDN'T REALLY UNDERSTAND

EVERYTHING THAT WAS GOING

ON, AND THE DYNAMICS

BETWEEN, YOU KNOW, BETWEEN

GROWN-UP RELATIONSHIPS.

BUT I COULD TELL FROM THE

WORDS THAT THIS OLD

PENTECOSTAL LADY WAS

PRAYING THAT HE DID NOT

HAVE A CHANCE.

HE CAME TO KNOW THE LORD

AS HIS SAVIOR.

IT WAS ALMOST, WENDY, LIKE

MY MOM'S PRAYERS AND THE

PRAYERS OF HIS FRIENDS --

IT WAS AS THOUGH THEY PUT

HIM ON A COT AND LIFTED

HIM UP TO THE ROOF.

Wendy: OH, THAT'S

BEAUTIFUL.

AND EVERY PRAYER I CAN

THINK THAT THEY PRAYED,

ANOTHER SHINGLE WOULD COME

OFF THAT ROOF.

AND UNTIL THEY LOWERED HIM

DOWN TO THE FACE OF

JESUS...

Wendy: IT IS

INTERESTING BECAUSE IN

YOUR BOOK, YOU TALKED

ABOUT HOW THEY REALLY

DIDN'T CONSIDER THEMSELVES

CRIMINALS.

THEY CONSIDERED THEMSELVES

BUSINESSMEN --

TRYING TO MAKE A

LIVING.

Wendy: -- TAKING CARE

OF THEIR FAMILY.

I GOT A LITTLE BIT OF

EDUCATION, BECAUSE I COULD

SELL YOU A PINT AS GOOD AS

THEY COULD.

Wendy: THANK GOODNESS

THAT DID NOT HAPPEN.

ANOTHER INFLUENCE IN YOUR

LIFE WAS A LADY NAMED MISS

GEORGIE.

SHE TAUGHT PIANO

LESSONS TO EVER KID IN

DANVILLE, KENTUCKY,

WHETHER THEY WANTED THEM

OR NOT.

AND I DID NOT WANT THEM,

BUT MY MOM WANTED ME TO

HAVE PIANO LESSONS.

SO I TOOK THE LESSONS FOR

A LONG TIME, AND SHE

FIGURED OUT I COULD CARRY

A TUNE.

I WAS A BOY SOPRANO, AND I

DIDN'T SING VERY MUCH.

YOU HAVEN'T LIVED UNTIL

YOU HAVE LIVED THE LIFE OF

A BOY SOPRANO.

SO SHE STARTED TEACHING ME

TUNES.

IN FACT, I DID MY FIRST

CONCERT WITH MISS GEORGIE

AT NINE YEARS OLD.

SHE DIDN'T WANT ANYTHING.

SHE WAS A WONDERFUL LADY.

SHE JUST WANTED TO INVEST

HERSELF IN SOME KID THAT

SHE MET.

AND YET SHE REALLY KIND OF

GOT ON MY LAST NERVE.

SHE WENT TO MY MOM ONE

TIME, AND SHE SAID, IDA

MAY, YOU SHOULD NOT LET

LARNELLE PLAY ANY SPORTS

IN THE DUST BECAUSE THE

DUST WILL HURT HIS VOICE.

AND WHAT 9-YEAR-OLD KID

WANTS TO HEAR ANY OF THAT.

BUT SHE WAS A WONDERFUL

LADY.

AND NOW, AS I'VE GOTTEN

OLDER, ESPECIALLY AS I'VE

GONE THROUGH THIS

EXERCISE, I HOPE THAT

EVERY TOWN HAS A MISS

GEORGIE.

Wendy: SHE REALLY

HELPED DEVELOP YOU.

BEFORE YOU SANG

PROFESSIONALLY, YOU PLAYED

THE DRUMS?

YES.

IN A GROUP CALLED "THE

SPERLOS."

IT WAS A GROUP PUT

TOGETHER BY A FRIEND OF

MINE --

Wendy: THERE WERE A

LOT OF FEMALES IN THAT

GROUP?

LOTS OF LADIES IN THAT

GROUP.

THAT WAS THE FUN PART.

BUT WE TRAVELLED ALL OVER

THE COUNTRY FOR A TIME.

AT FIRST WE WERE DOING

DRIVER EDUCATION SAFETY

PROGRAMS FOR CHYSLER

CORPORATION.

AND AT NIGHT WE WOULD DO

OUR CONCERT OF SACRED

SONGS.

AND WE WOULD INVITE THE

KIDS TO COME TO OUR

NIGHTTIME CONCERTS.

IT WAS A WONDERFUL,

WONDERFUL MINISTRY.

AND THEN A GUY BY THE NAME

OF OTIS SKILLINGS CAME IN

WITH AN ARRANGEMENT OF "O

HAPPY DAY."

AND THEY SAID, SING THIS

FOR THEM.

AND I HADN'T SUNG

ANYTHING.

I HAD BEEN IN THE GROUP

FOR ALMOST SIX MONTHS.

AND I SANG IT, AND THAT

BECAME MY SONG.

AND I STARTED SINGING WITH

THE SPERLOS.

Wendy: WAS IT AROUND

THAT TIME YOU MET YOUR

WIFE?

I MET MY WIFE IN

COLLEGE, AT THE

UNIVERSITY.

AND WE HAD A VERY, VERY

ROCKY RELATIONSHIP.

SHE WAS A GROWNUP, AND I

WAS A KID, WHICH IS STILL

PRETTY MUCH THE SAME.

BUT NOW, THIS COMING

DECEMBER 19th, FOR THOSE

OF YOU WHO SEND GIFTS, 46

YEARS AND COUNTING.

Wendy: WONDERFUL.

I UNDERSTAND EARLY ON IN

YOUR SINGING CAREER, YOU

LOST YOUR VOICE FOR A

Wii HOWHILE.

HOW DID THAT AFFECT YOU?

IT WAS TOUGH.

IT WAS TOUGH.

I HAD DONE SOME RECORDING,

AND I WENT TO DOCTORS ALL

OVER THE COUNTRY, AND THEY

WOULD LISTEN TO MY VOICE,

AND I HAD SUNG MYSELF OUT.

Wendy: YOU WERE

BURNED OUT.

YOU WERE SINGING ALL OF

THE TIME.

ALL THE TIME.

THEY SAID, I DON'T KNOW IF

YOU'RE GOING TO SOUND LIKE

THAT AGAIN OR IF YOU'RE

GOING TO SING AGAIN.

I HAD THE FORMATION OF

MOCNODULES.

AND I FOUND OUT WHAT THAT

WAS ALL ABOUT.

BECAUSE WHEN YOU CAN'T

SING, YOU START SEARCHING.

I REALLY BATHED IN

SCRIPTURE UNTIL I FIGURED

OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON.

WHEN I LEFT COLLEGE, I HAD

A VOICE AND A DEGREE.

AND I WAS GOING TO TURN

THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN WITH

THIS VOICE, AND PUT MY

TRUST IN THAT.

THIS TIME IN MY LIFE GOD

WAS SAYING TO ME, YOU KNOW

WHAT?

IT IS NOT GOING TO BE

VOICE THAT YOU'RE GGING TO

TRUST IN.

IT IS NOT GOING TO BE THE

THINGS THAT YOU THINK ARE

IMPORTANT IN LIFE.

WE'RE GOING TO TRUST IN

ME.

AND THAT IS A LESSON THAT

I'VE NEVER FORGOTTEN.

Wendy: AND THEN, OF

COURSE, YOU WENT ON TO WIN

FIVE GRAMMY AWARDS, AT

LEAST --

WELL, THEY'VE GOT TO

GIVE THEM TO SOMEBODY.

Wendy: YOU'VE

PERFORMED AT THE WHITE

HOUSE AND ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

AND NOW YOU HAVE A NEW

ALBUM OUT.

THIS WAS WRITTEN BY

SOME FRIENDS OF MINE.

IN ORDER TO GET THIS INTO

MY D.N.A., I REMEMBERED A

TIME THAT I WAS IN ISRAEL

AND HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO

GO INTO THE GARDEN OF

GETHSEMANE.

AND I FLOATED AROUND

THERE.

I TRIED TO FIGURE OUT

WHERE JESUS MIGHT HAVE

SPREAD THAT BLOOD.

AND I IDENTIFIED WITH THE

DISCIPLES.

AND JESUS, WHAT DID HE DO?

HE WENT OVER AND WOKE

THEM.

HE SAID, CAN YOU JUST PRAY

WITH ME, JUST A LITTLE

WHILE?

ETERNAL LIFE IS IN THE

BALANCE HERE.

BUT WHAT DID HE DO?

HE DISTURBED THEM.

HE WOKE THEM UP.

EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, I

AM SO THANKFUL THAT GOD

PUTS HIS HAND ON MY

SHOULDER AND SHAKES ME A

LITTLE BIT.

JUST WAKES ME UP.

Wendy: LARNELLE, WE

ARE SO EAGER TO HEAR YOU

SING, SO PLEASE WALK ON

OVER TO THE MUSIC SET,

RIGHT OVER THERE.

LARNELLE'S BOOK IS CALLED

"SHAPED NOTES: HOW

ORDINARY PEOPLE WITH

EXTRAORDINARY GIFTS

INFLUENCED MY LIFE AND

CAREER."

HIS LATEST C.D. IS CALLED

"DISTURB US, LORD," WITH

SONGS ABOUT THE CROSS,

AVAILABLE NATIONWIDE.

AND NOW, HERE IS LARNELLE

SINGING, "DISTURB US,

LORD."

* DISTURB, LORD, WHEN

WORLDLY THINGS DELIGHT

US *

* AND WE FAIL TO LOOK

ABOVE *

*

WHEN WE WITHHOLD FROM

OTHERS *

* THOUGH WE'VE BEEN GIVEN

MUCH *

* IF THE FIRE OF OUR FIRST

LOVE IS NOT BURNING BRIGHT

AS BEFORE *

* DISTURB US, LORD

* DISTURB US, LORD

* WHEN WE'RE NOT IN YOUR

WORD *

* AND WE DON'T SPEND TIME

ON OUR KNEES *

* WHEN WE HAVE A CHANCE,

BUT WE DON'T SPEAK THE

TRUTH THAT SETS THEM

FREE *

* IF WE DON'T WORSHIP WITH

FIERY PASSION ANYMORE *

* DISTURB US, LORD

* SOMETIMES YOUR GREAT

LOVE COMFORTS THE

TROUBLES *

* BUT OTHER TIMES, IN YOUR

GREAT LOVE, YOU TROUBLE

THE COMFORTABLE *

*

* DISTURB US, LORD

* IF OUR LIVES NEVER TOUCH

THE LIVES OF THOSE STILL

IN THE DARK *

* IF WE DON'T LIVE WITH

HEARTS THAT BREAK *

* IN TENDERNESS, PLEASE

LEAD YOUR CHURCH BACK TO

YOUR HEART ONCE MORE *

* DISTURB US, LORD

* IF WE EVER LOSE THE

WONDER OF THE CROSS THAT

YOU ONCE BORE *

* DISTURB US, LORD

* DISTURB US, LORD

*

[APPLAUSE]

Wendy: STILL

AHEAD...GET READY FOR

ANOTHER ROUND OF YOUR

QUESTIONS AND HONEST

ANSWERS.

WE'LL TACKLE YOUR E-MAILS,

LATER ON TODAY'S SHOW.

Pat: AT THE BOTTOM OF

A HILL OUTSIDE A VILLAGE

IN THE PHILIPPINES, THERE

IS ALL SORTS OF GARBAGE

AND TRASH IN ONE SMALL

LOCATION.

BUT THIS PLACE ISN'T THE

LOCAL LANDFILL.

IT'S THE RIVER WHERE

PEOPLE GO TO GET THEIR

DRINKING WATER.

Reporter: EVERY DAY

6-YEAR-OLD R.J. AND THIS

TWIN SISTER, CHANTEL, THAT

THE JOB OF COLLECTING

WATER, JUST DOWN THE HILL

FROM THEIR HOUSE.

BUT THEY WERE TROUBLED BY

WHAT THEY FOUND IN THE

STREAM.

THERE IS GARBAGE AND

TRASH.

AND I SAW PEOPLE USE IT AS

A TOILETC TOILET.

THE WATER DOES NOT LOOK

CLEAN, AND IT DOESN'T

TASTER GOOD.

ReporterTASTE GOOD.

Reporter: BUT THIS

WAS THEIR ONLY SOURCE OF

WATER, AND THE TWINS OFTEN

GOT SICK.

MY STOMACH HURT.

MY STOMACH HURT, TOO.

IT FELT LIKE THERE WERE

WORMS MOVING A LOT INSIDE

ME.

Reporter: SO CBN DUG

A WELL FOR R.J. AND

CHANTEL AND THEIR

NEIGHBORS.

NOW THEY HAVE A CLEAN

SOURCE OF WATER FOR

COOKING, DRINKING, AND

BATHING.

THE WATER IS CLOSE TO

OUR HOUSE.

IT IS SAFE TO DRINK, FROM

THE WELL.

AND IT TASTES GOOD.

WE ARE SO HAPPY.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR GIVING

US THIS WELL.

Pat: WE HAVE DUG

THOUSANDS OF WELLS TO

BRING CLEAN DRINKING WATER

TO PEOPLE.

THE KIDS ARE SICK AND THEY

HAVE INTESTINAL DISEASES,

AND CBN IS REACHING OUT TO

DO SOMETHING.

NOW, IF YOU WANT TO

PARTICIPATE -- AND I THINK

YOU DO -- IT'S REAL

SIMPLE.

YOU CAN CHANGE SOMEBODY'S

LIFE WITH JUST 65 CENTS A

DAY.

YOU PAY A COUPLE OF BUCKS

FOR A CAN OF SODA WATER

WITH SOME CAFFEINE AND

SOME FLAVORING IN IT.

PEOPLE WHO SMOKE, THEY'RE

SPENDING, $7, $8, $9, $10

A PACK FOR THAT STUFF.

65 CENTS AND YOU CAN MAKE

A DIFFERENCE, YOU CAN JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

I WANT TO SEND YOU THIS

D.V.D. WE DID, CALLED

"ANGELS: THEY'RE POWER,

PURPOSE, AND PRESENCE."

AND WE HAVE THAT DEAR,

WONDERFUL LADY, ROMA

DOWNEY, BRINGING HER

ENDORSEMENT AS A LITTLE

SOMETHING EXTRA ON THE

D.V.D.

Wendy: THE STORIES OF

PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD

REAL-LIFE ENCOUNTERS WITH

ANGELS WILL BLOW YOUR

MIND.

THE BIBLE MENTIONS ANGELS

ABOUT 60 TIMES.

SO THEY'RE VERY IMPORTANT

MAJESTIC BEINGS, AND WE

KNOW SO LITTLE ABOUT THEM.

BUT THAT D.V.D. WILL TELL

YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO

KNOW.

Pat: SCOTT AND I WERE

THERE DOING IT, AND WE

WERE BRINGING YOU

FIRSTHAND ACCOUNTS, AND

THEN ROMA CAME ON TO BRING

AN ENDORSEMENT.

THAT'S REALLY NICE.

WE'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU AS

A GIFT TO YOU FOR THOSE

WHO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

JUST PICK UP THE PHONE AND

CALL IN.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

IT IS TIME FOR YOUR

E-MAILS AND HONEST

ANSWERS.

MARIA WRITES IN, "I REALLY

WANT TO KNOW GOD, BUT I DO

NOT KNOW HOW TO START.

WHAT DO I DID?"

Pat: WELL, MARIA, YOU

START WITH TAKING JESUS AS

YOUR SAVIOR.

YOU SAY, LOOK, I'M A

SINNER, AND I NEED A

SAVIOR.

AND I ASK YOU TO FORGIVE

ME.

AND I ASK YOU TO COME INTO

MY LIFE AND CHANGE ME.

THAT'S WHERE YOU START.

THEN DAY BY DAY, HOW CAN I

YOUNG MAN CLEANSE HIS

WORD?

LIFE?

BY TAKINGHEED THERETO WITH

THE WORD GOD.

YOU LET THOUGH WORDS OF

THE BIBLE TAKE HOLD IN

YOUR HEART.

Wendy: JUSTINE SAYS,

"I'M 22 AND I'M BATTLING

DEPRESSION BECAUSE OF

SEXUAL ABUSE.

I'M TIRED OF BEING SCARED

OF GOING OUTSIDE.

MOST OF THE TIME I FEEL

SICK AND HOPELESS.

CAN I PLEASE GET PRAYER

FOR MY MENTAL AND PHYSICAL

SICKNESS.

ANY ADVICE, I WILL SURELY

TAKE IT."

PARM THE BIBLE SAYS,

PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT

FEAR, FOR FEAR HAS

TORMENT.

YOU NEED TO OPEN YOURSELF

TO THE LOVE OF GOD.

SERIOUSLY, JUST SAY, GOD,

I LOVE YOU, AND I THANK

YOU FOR LOVING ME.

AND I WANT YOU TO RECEIVE

THAT.

DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY

JUST BATHE YOURSELF IN THE

LOVE OF GOD.

YOU MAY NEED SOME PEOPLE

AROUND YOU -- FIND PEOPLE

WHO ARE BELIEVERS, A SMALL

PRAYER GROUP, WHO WILL

PRAY FOR YOU AND PRAY

TOGETHER WITH YOU, THAT

YOU MAY BE SET FREE.

AND GOD DIDN'T BRING THIS

ON YOU.

AND HE WANTS TO TAKE IT IS

AWAY FROM YOU.

SO JUST KNOW HE LOVES YOU.

AND JUST SATURATE YOURSELF

IN THE LOVE OF GOD.

Wendy: GOOD WORD.

DIXIE SAYS, "WHY DO YOU

SUPPOSE GOD HAS KEPT SATAN

AROUND ALL THIS TIME AND

DIDN'T JUST DESTROY HIM

YEARS AGO?"

GOOD QUESTION.

Pat: GOOD QUESTION.

YOU WOULD THINK, IT WOULD

BE SO EASY TO ZAP THAT

RASCAL AND GET RID OF HIM.

BUT HERE IS THE DEAL: GOD

WANTS TO SHOW THAT LOVE IS

THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE IN

THE UNIVERSE.

IF HE DESTROYED SATAN,

THEN HE WOULD SEND A

MESSAGE TO THE ANGELS, THE

PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS

THAT POWER AND FEAR WOULD

RULE THE UNIVERSE.

BUT INSTEAD OF O THAT, GOD

SENT HIS SON, HIS SON,

PROIRPRECIOUS SON, TO DIE, AND

FOR THAT DEATH TO SHOW

THAT LOVE WOULD CONQUER.

AND WHEN JESUS SAID ON THE

CROSS, IT IS FINISHED --

HE DIDN'T SAY, I AM

FINISHED, HE SAID, IT IS

FINISHED.

SATAN LOST WHEN HE KILLED

JESUS.

Wendy: JULIE SAYS,, I

WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW

WHEN A HUSBAND DIVORCES

HIS WIFE AFTER 17 YEARS OF

MARRIAGE, IS IT A SIN TO

START MY WIFE OVER AGAIN

AND BE REMARRIED?"

Pat: IF YOU LIKE

MARRIAGE THAT MUCH, I

DON'T SEE ANY REASON WHY

NOT.

YOU MAY NOT LIKE IT THAT

MUCH.

BUT, ANYHOW, THE BIBLE

SAYS -- IT IS WHAT IS

CALLED THE "PAULINE

PRIVILEGE."

IF THE UNBELIEVING SPOUSE

IS PLEASED TO DEPART, LET

HIM DEPART.

THE BROTHER OR SISTER IS

NOT BOUND IN THAT CASE.

THAT'S THE PAULINE

PRIVILEGE, AND IT IS IN

THE BIBLE.

THAT IS ONE THAT SAYS, HE

LEFT YOU, AND YOU'RE FREE

TO GO GET MARRIED AGAIN IF

YOU WANT TO.

Wendy: MAYBE SHE'LL

FIND A GOOD ONE THIS TIME.

Pat: MAYBE, BUT BE

CAREFUL.

THERE MAY BE ANOTHER BAD

ONE OUT THERE.

> WELL, TODAY'S POWER

MINUTE IS FROM THE BOOK OF

NEHEMIAH: "DO NOT SORROW,

FOR THE JOY OF THE LORD IS

YOUR STRENGTH."

> WELL, TOMORROW, UP

CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH

THE HOST OF THE NFL TODAY,

JAMES BROWN.

I LOOK FORWARD TO.

AND FOR ALL OF US, THIS IS

PAT ROBERTSON, AND FOR

WENDY AND ME AND ALL OF

CBCBN, THANK YOU FOR BEING

WITH US.

WE'LL SEE YOU ALL ON "THE

700 CLUB" TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
