PEOPLE THAT WERE AFRAID

TO GO TO DOWNTOWN DETROIT

Wendy: PLUS...A MOM

GOES IN FOR A HIP

REPLACEMENT AND COMES OUT

HOOKED ON OXI.

ALL DAY LONG...

Wendy: HOW SHE GOT

CLEAN INSIDE A POLICE

CRUISER.

I GIVE UP.

I JUST CAN'T DO THIS

ANYMORE.

I GIVE UP.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

ITHERE WAS AN ENTERTAINING

ITEM IN THE NEWS

YESTERDAY: A CUBAN

IMMIGRANT WHO WAS SELLING

BOOKS HAS BECOME THE

RICHEST MAN IN AMERICA.

JEFJEFF BEZOS, AMAZON.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT HIS NET

WORTH IS?

$441,900,000.

HE HAS $60 BILLION MORE

THAN WARREN BUFFETT.

AMAZON, IT HAS GONE CRAZY.

Terry: THOSE NUMBERS

ARE TOO BIG TO DIGEST.

Pat: WHAT DOES A

PERSON DO WITH ALL OF THAT

MONEY?

Terry: HOPEFULLY

SOMETHING GOOD.

Pat: WELL, HE BOUGHT

THE "WASHINGTON POST."

WHAT THEY'RE DOING IS

ANYTHING BUT GOOD.

YOU TALK ABOUT LEFT

WING -- IT IS UNREAL.

HE OUGHT TO BE THANKING

THE LORD.

Terry: A LOT OF

RESPONSIBILITY WHEN YOU

HAVE THAT KIND OF MONEY.

Pat: HE HAS JUST

TAKEN OVER EVERYTHING.

I THINK THEY'RE BUYING

FRESH -- WHAT, FRESH

FOOD -- WHATEVER THOSE

MARKETS ARE.

Terry: FRESH MARKET?

Pat: FRESH MARKET.

I THINK HE BOUGHT THAT.

THEY'VE GOT A GROCERY

CHAIN.

THEY'RE SELLING

EVERYTHING.

ANYHOW, IN CASE YOU MISSED

IT, IT'S SUMMER.

THIS IS JUNE, BUT THEY SAY

IT IS THE WORST.

THE SUMMER'S FIRST

HEATWAVE IS ROLLING ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

IT'S BRINGING WITH IT

RECORD-BREAKING

TEMPERATURES.

SO THERE ARE STORMS,

FLASHFLOODS.

HERE IN VIRGINIA, RIGHT

WHERE I AM, ON THE

TIDEWATER VIRGINIA, IT IS

EXPECTED TO BE 100.

Terry: THAT'S RIGHT.

THE HEAT HAS CLOSED

SCHOOLS, AND IT HAS LED TO

AIR QUALITY ALERTS,

RAISING CONCERNS FOR YOUNG

CHILDREN, BUT ESPECIALLY

FOR THE ELDERLY.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Caitlin: IF YOU'VE

BEEN OUTSIDE OVER THE LAST

FEW DAYS, YOU KNOW IT HAS

BEEN HOT.

THE FIRST HEATWAVE OF 2018

SPANNING THE COUNTRY,

BREAKING RECORDS, AND

RAISING ALARMS.

IN THIS KIND OF HEAT, AUTO

AND POWER PLANT EMISSIONS,

COMBINED WITH OZONE, CAN

CAUSE BREATHING ISSUES FOR

CHILDREN AND THE ELDERLY,

AND PEOPLE WITH

PREEXISTING BREATHING

ISSUES.

MONDAY TEMPERATURES

REACHED NEW HIGHS, AND IN

SOME PART OF THE

NORTHEAST, SCHOOLS

ACTUALLY CLOSED FOR THE

DAY.

STORMS IN PART OF THE

REGION IS BRINGING RELIEF

WITH MUCH COOLER

TEMPERATURES TODAY.

BUT THE CAROLINAS AND

VIRGINIA WILL STILL BE

BLISTERING.

BUT IN THE MIDWEST, RAIN

IS THE PROBLEM.

A STATE OF EMERGENCY HAS

BEEN DECLARED IN WISCONSIN

AFTER A DAM FAILED.

HERE YOU CAN SEE THE WATER

POURING THROUGH THAT

BROKEN DAM.

DOWN RIVER, THE WATER

SPILLED OVER THIS BRIDGE,

CAUSING PART OF IT TO

COLLAPSE.

THAT BRIDGE WAS JUST

REPAIRED WEEKS AGO.

THEY JUST PATCHED THE

ROAD JUST LAST WEEK

BECAUSE IT WASHED OUT TWO

YEARS AGO FROM A BAD

STORM.

YOU KNOW, THEY JUST GOT IT

ALL REPAIRED AND NOW WE'RE

BACK TO SQUARE ONE AGAIN.

Caitlin: IN MICHIGAN,

FLOODING CAUSED MORE THAN

60 SINK HOLES, AND IN

WYOMING, HAIL BLANKETED

HIGHWAYS.

UNFORTUNATELY, THERE IS NO

END IN SIGHT FOR THAT RAIN

IN THE MIDWEST.

FLOOD-WATCHES CONTINUE.

BUT ON THE PLUS SIDE, IT

APPEARS WHERE THERE IS

RAPE, THERRAIN, THERE IS LESS HEAT,

BUT NOT IN VIRGINIA HERE,

WHERE IT IS EXPECTED TO

HIT 100.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: HERE WE ARE IN

THE GARDEN SPOT IN

AMERICA, AND THERE IS 100

TEMPERATURE.

Terry: PART OF WHAT

MAKES IT SO MISERABLE HERE

IS THE HUMIDITY.

Pat: IN ANY EVENT,

WE'RE GRATEFUL.

I'M JUST PRAISING THE

LORD.

> I WANT TO TELL YOU,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I'D

LIKE TO ASK THE PRESIDENT

WHAT IS THE CONCEPT OF

THIS TRADE STUFF THAT IS

GOING ON?

BECAUSE RIGHT NOW IT LOOKS

LIKE IT'S JUST TIT-FOR-TAT

AND WE'RE IN A TRADE WAR.

WELL, THE GROWING TRADE

CONFLICT WITH CHINA IS

AFFECTING GLOBAL MARKETS.

AND JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE

ON THAT STORY FROM OUR CBN

NEWS BUREAU IN WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

GLOBAL MARKETS ARE

SHUTTERING AS TRADE

TENSIONS BETWEEN THE

UNITED STATES AND CHINA

CONTINUE TO ESCALATE, WITH

NEW THREATS COMING FROM

BOTH SIDES.

PRESIDENT TRUMP

THREATENING A NEW 10%

TARIFF ON $200 BILLION OF

MORE CHINESE IMPORTS.

CHINA CALLING THAT ACTION

BLACKMAIL, AND SAYING IT

CAN EXPECT STRONG

COUNTER-MEASURES OF THE

SAME AMOUNT OF QUALITY.

MARKETS IN FRANCE,

GERMANY, AND THE UNITED

KINGDOM DROPPED IN

RESPONSE TO THE NEWS.

LOSSES IN ASIA WERE

SHARPER, AND WALL STREET

IS EXPECTING A DOWN DAY.

> PRESIDENT TRUMP MEETS

WITH CONGRESSIONAL

REPUBLICANS TODAY AS THE

HOUSE PREPARES TO VOTE ON

TWO IMMIGRATION BILLS.

AND NOW, AS THE NATIONAL

OUTCRY AGAINST A POLICY

SEPARATING CHILDREN FROM

PARENTS GROWS, ONE SENATOR

IS PROPOSING A BILL THAT

OFFERS A QUICK SOLUTION.

HEATHER SELLS HAS MORE.

Heather: WITH

OPPOSITION TO THE

SO-CALLED ZERO-TOLERANCE

POLICY GROWING, THE

HOMELAND SECURITY

SECRETARY SAYS CONGRESS

NEEDS TO ACT.

CONGRESS AND THE COURTS

CREATED THIS PROBLEM, AND

CONGRESS ALONE CAN FIX IT.

Heather:

HEARTBREAKING PICTURES AND

VIDEOS SHOW CHILDREN IN

U.S. BORDER SHELTERS.

MOMMY.

Heather: AN AUDIO

RECORDING RECORDS CHILDREN

IT SAYS WERE JUST

SEPARATED FROM THEIR

PARENTS.

PAPA.

Heather: THE HOMELAND

SECURITY SECRETARY

DEFENDED THE

ADMINISTRATION IN A TENSE

WHITE HOUSE PRESS

CONFERENCE.

CHILDREN IN D.H.S. ARE

BEING TAKEN CARE OF.

THEY PROVIDE MEALS,

MEDICAL CARE, AND

EDUCATIONAL SERVICES TO

THESE CHILDREN.

Heather: EVANGELICALS

HAVE BEEN SPEAKING OUT

AGAINST THE POLICY, BUT

WHEN ASKED ABOUT THEIR

DISCUSSIONS WITH THE

PRESIDENT, PRESS SECRETARY

SANDERS PIVOTED TO

CONGRESS.

I THINK ANY

EVANGELICAL, OR ANY

CHURCH, FOR THAT MATTER,

THAT FEELS STRONGLY, THEY

SHOULD OPEN UP THEIR DOORS

AND HELP FACILITATE SOME

OF THESE INDIVIDUALS.

I THINK THAT'S THEIR

CALLING.

THAT'S THE MISSION OF THE

CHURCH.

AND THEY SHOULD CERTAINLY

FULFILL THAT.

IF THEY WANT TO FIX THE

IMMIGRATION SYSTEM, THEN

THEY SHOULD CALL THEIR

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.

Heather: A NEW

PROPOSAL FROM SENATOR TED

CRUZ WOULD MANDATE THAT

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT FAMILIES

STAY TOGETHER, ABSENT

AGGRAVATED CRIMINAL

CONDUCT.

THE PRESIDENT WILL MEET

WITH HOUSE REPUBLICANS

TODAY TO TALK ABOUT TWO

IMMIGRATION BILLS THAT

COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

HE SAID HE HATES THE

POLICY BUT ALSO INSISTS

THE U.S. MUST CONTROL ITS

BORDER.

President Trump: THE

UNITED STATES WILL NOT BE

A MIGRANT CAMP.

AND IT WILL NOT BE A

REFUGEE-HOLDING FACILITY.

IT WON'T BE.

Heather: MOST IN

WASHINGTON BELIEVE THE TWO

IMMIGRATION BILLS HAVE

LITTLE CHANCE OF PASSING.

IF WE GET THROUGH THE

END OF THIS WEEK, THEY

ACTUALLY DO HAVE THE VOTE

ON THOSE TWO BILLS, AND

NEITHER ONE OF THEM GETS

THROUGH, THEN I THINK ANY

CHANCE FOR A VOTE ON

IMMIGRATION LEGISLATION

BEFORE THE MID-TERM

ELECTIONS IS PROBABLY

DEAD.

Heather: MOST BELIEVE

CONGRESS WILL NOT ACT

UNTIL AFTER THE MID-TERM

LACKS FOUNDATIONSLACKSELECTIONS, BUT IF PU BLIC

OUTCRY MEANS ANYTHING,

CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT

WILL AVOID SEPARATING

CHILDREN FROM THEIR

PARENTS.

John: PAT, THIS

REALLY STRONG CRITICISM IS

FROM ALL CORNERS OF THE

MORAL AND POLITICAL

SPECTRUM HERE.

Pat: THE TROUBLE IS

THEY'RE GETTING SET UP.

THE CONGRESS HAS JUST GOT

TO GET ITS ACT TOGETHER.

THE REPUBLICANS CONTROL

THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE

AND THE WHITE HOUSE.

NOW, IT IS TIME FOR THEM

TO ACT AS A UNIT AND GET

THIS IMMIGRATION THING

FIXED.

BUT WHAT IS BEING

REVEALED, HOWEVER -- AND I

THINK WE'VE GOT TO

RECOGNIZE, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN -- IS THAT THE

WORD WAS OUT, IF YOU CAME

TO THIS COUNTRY WITH KIDS

IN TOW, YOU COULD GET IN.

IF YOU DIDN'T HAVE KIDS,

YOU COULDN'T GET IN.

SO THE WORD WAS,

THROUGHOUT LATIN-AMERICA,

BRING CHILDREN WITH YOU.

SOME WERE ACTUALLY SENDING

LITTLE CHILDREN BY

THEMSELVES ACROSS THE

BORDER, AND THEN THEY'RE

SAYING, WE'VE GOT TO JOIN

OUR CHILDREN BECAUSE

THEY'RE ALREADY HERE.

I MEAN, IT HAS BEEN A

FRAUD AND A SCAM BECAUSE

THAT'S WHAT WAS SET UP

UNDER THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

BUT TRUMP AND THE

REPUBLICANS ARE GOING TO

TAKE THE HEALTH FOR THE

WHOLE THING.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS A

HEARTLESS, MONSTEROUS EVIL

THAT IS BEING PERPETRATED

ON THESE POOR FAMILIES.

THEY WERE SETTING

THEMSELVES UP.

THEY KNEW EXACTLY WHAT

THEY WERE DOING.

THEY'VE COME ACROSS THE

BORDER.

WE'RE GOING TO GET IN, AND

HERE IS HOW TO DO IT:

BRING KIDS WITH YOU.

IF YOU CAN GET THEM IN --

IT WAS ALL SET UP.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, WE ARE

NOW GOING TO FIND A

CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS AND

AN ELECTORAL DISASTER FOR

THE REPUBLICANS IF THEY

DON'T RECOGNIZE WHAT

THEY'RE DOING.

AND I, FOR ONE, SAY, WILL

YOU PLEASE TAKE YOUR HEAD

OUT OF THE SAND AND LOOK

AROUND AND SEE WHAT DAMAGE

THIS POLICY IS CAUSING.

THE CONGRESS CAN FIX IT.

AND THEY NEED TO FIX IT.

TED CRUZ HAS A PROPOSAL.

IF THAT DOESN'T WORK, GET

SOMEBODY ELSE.

VARIOUS ONCE HAVE

PROPOSALS.

GET SOMETHING AND PASS IT.

AND GET A FIX ON THIS

IMMIGRATION THING OR IT'S

GOING TO BRING YOUR WHOLE

HOUSE OF CARDS TUMBLING

DOWN.

John: PRESIDENT TRUMP

HAS ANNOUNCED HE IS

DIRECTING THE PENTAGON TO

CREATE A NEW MILITARY

BRANCH CALLED THE SPACE

FORCE.

THE INDEPENDENT MILITARY

SERVICE BRANCH AIMS TO

ENSURE AMERICAN SUPREMACY

IN SPACE.

AND TRUMP ANNOUNCED HE WAS

SIGNING A NEW SPACE POLICY

DIRECTIVE, CALLING FOR A

SAFE AND SECURE

ENVIRONMENT IN EUROPE.

AND IT SETS UP NEW

GUIDELINES FOR SATELLITE

DESIGN AND O OPERATION TO

AVOID COLLISION AND

SPACECRAFT COLLISIONS.

ACCORDING TO THE "NEW

YORK TIMES," THE OLD

STRATEGY AIMED TO STOP

ATTACKERS IF THEY TRIED TO

PENETRATE OUR NETWORKS,

AND THE NEW POLICY TARGETS

FOREIGN NETWORKS SEEKING

TO DISABLE THEIR CYBER

WEAPONS BEFORE THEY CAN

LAUNCH AN ATTACK.

EXPERTS WIDELY BELIEVE THE

UNITED STATES HASN'T PUT

TOGETHER A STRONG ENOUGH

DEFENSE AGAINST ONGOING

CYBER ATTACKS FROM OTHER

COUNTRIES.

PAT, THIS IS SOMETHING

YOU'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT

FOR QUITE SOME TIME.

Pat: WITHOUT

QUESTION.

WE, AS A NATION, HAVE THE

MOST POWERFUL CYBER

CAPABILITIES OF ANY OTHER

NATION ON THE FACE OF THE

EARTH.

THE N.S.A. IS UNIQUELY

QUALIFIED TO GO OUT AFTER

THESE COUNTRIES, LIKE

CHINA AND RUSSIA AND

CAREER AND OTHER WHO'S KOREA

AND OTHERS.

AND WE NEED TO GO ON THE

ATTACK, AND STOP BEING A

PUNCHING BAG AND START

FIGHTING.

NOW, I MIGHT SAY, THIS IS

SOMETHING VERY CLOSE TO

ME.

AT REGENT UNIVERSITY, WE

HAVE A CYBER RANGE AND

HAVE BEEN VISITED BY THE

N.S.A. -- LET'S SEE, NASA

AND HOMELAND SECURITY AND

THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT AND

NAVAL INTELLIGENCE CENTER,

AND ALL ARE SAYING, WOULD

YOU HELP US TRAIN OUR

EMPLOYEES?

WE'RE GOING TO BE

OFFERING, AT REGENT

UNIVERSITY, A CERTIFICATE

AS A CYBER SPECIALIST.

AND THEY CAN WORK ON A

CYBER RANGE.

AND THEY CAN WAR GAME A

CYBER ATTACK AND THEN THEY

CAN LEARN SOME OF THE

TECHNOLOGY AND THE DATA

BEHIND IT.

AND IF YOU WANT TO GET

INVOLVED -- IF YOU'RE

INTERESTED IN GETTING A

CERTIFICATE OR TRAINING

YOUR OWN TEAMS ON A REAL

SOPHISTICATED CYBER RANGE,

THERE IS THE NUMBER: 866-

866-910-7695, REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE ARE

ALREADY APPLYING, AND

TEAMS WILL BE ABLE TO

TRAIN A WHOLE EXECUTIVE

TEAM, AND THEY CAN ALL

LEARN TOGETHER HOW THEY

CAN MOBILIZE A CORPORATION

AGAINST AN ATTACK.

BUT WE'RE SO VULNERABLE IN

THIS AGE WE LIVE IN.

EVERYBODY HAS GOT STUFF ON

COMPUTERS.

THE COMPUTERS ARE SO

VULNERABLE, AND THEY CAN

BE HACKED, AND THEY CAN BE

COMPROMISED.

AND WE HAVE THESE DATA

BREACHES WHERE HUNDREDS OF

MILLIONS OF ACCOUNTS ARE

BEING MADE PUBLIC.

AND THIS IS SOME OF THE

BIGGEST INSTITUTIONS IN

OUR NATION, NOT TO MENTION

THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT AND

OTHER INSTITUTIONS.

SO, ANYHOW, THAT'S WHAT IS

GOING ON.

JOHN, WHAT HAVE YOU GOT?

John: PAT, IT HAS

BEEN ONE MONTH SINCE

TRAGEDY HIT A SMALL TOWN

TEXAS HIGH SCHOOL, LOSING

EIGHT STUDENTS AND TWO

TEACHERS.

EVEN AS A COMMUNITY

MOURNS, IT HAS BECOME A

SYMBOL OF HEALING AND

COMMUNITY.

IT CAME OUT RIGHT HERE.

John: THE MEMORY IS

FOREVER SEALED IN THE

MINDS OF THESE HIGH SCHOOL

STUDENTS AND STAFF.

IT IS ALSO FELT THROUGHOUT

THIS TIGHT COMMUNITY.

WE WORK HAND IN GLOVE

TOGETHER HERE.

John: MINUTES AFTER

THE FIRST 9-1-1 CALL, THIS

PASTOR'S PHONE CALL WENT

OFF.

PASTOR ELLIOT IMMEDIATELY

CALLED IN REEN FORMTSZ.

REINFORCES.

BECAUSE OF THE UNITY WE

HAD AS PASTORS, FROM

DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS, WE

WERE READY IN THAT MOMENT.

John: OTHER OFFERS

POURED IN, INCLUDING FROM

THOSE ALREADY FAMILIAR

WITH THIS TYPE OF TRAUMA.

I SPOKE TO THE MAYOR OF

PARKLAND, AND SHE KIND OF

TOLD ME WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN AND WHAT TO EXPECT.

Reporter: WHILE THE

PARKLAND LED TO RALLIES,

SAN JOSE'S REACTION HAS

BEEN DIFFERENT.

US BEING ABLE TO DO

THAT AT A MOMENT'S NOTICE,

I BELIEVE HELPED TO TURN

THAT NARRATIVE SO THAT THE

OUTSIDE FORCES REALIZED

THAT THIS WASN'T A PLACE

THEY WERE GOING TO BE

SUCCESSFUL.

John: A SIMILAR CALL

FOR UNITY MADE A MAJOR

DIFFERENCE THREE YEARS AGO

AT THE SOUTH CAROLINA

CHURCH SHOOTING.

THERE WERE CHURCHES

FROM EVERY DENOMINATION

WERE IN THE PARKS.

OUTLET PARKS SINGING,

WORSHIPPING, SINGING,

JOINING ARM IN ARM, BLACK,

WHITE, RED, BROWN, AND

YELLOW.

SO WHEN OUTSIDERS CAME, IT

WAS DEFUSED BECAUSE THE

LOCAL CHURCHES DECIDED

THEY WERE GOING TO SET THE

TONE AND THE NARRATIVE.

John: IN SANTA FE, IT

IS NOT ONLY HELPING THE

COMMUNITY HEAL, IT IS

MAKING AN IMPACT FAR AND

WIDE.

THE TREMENDOUS EVIL

THAT TOOK PLACE IS NOT

CONQUERED THE SPIRIT OF

THIS COMMUNITY.

AND THE CHURCH HAS BEEN A

PART OF THAT.

John: THE CHURCH

TAKING THE LEAD THERE.

PAT, EVERYONE WE TALKED TO

SAID THEY RESOLVED NOT TO

BE DEFINED BY THIS

TRAGEDY.

INSTEAD THEY'RE SHOWING A

PICTURE OF UNITY SUMMED UP

IN THE PHRASE "SANTA FE

STRONG."

Pat: IT IS AMAZING

WHAT WAS BEING DONE.

FOLKS, THAT'S WHAT THE

CHURCH IS HERE FOR.

THAT'S WHAT GOD'S PEOPLE

ARE HERE FOR, TO BRING YOU

RECONCILIATION, TO BRING

HEALING, TO BRING

UNDERSTANDING.

AND WHEN WE STAND

TOGETHER, THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE.

WHEN WE STAND TOGETHER,

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

> I WANT TO SHIFT THE

SUBJECT A LITTLE BIT.

A FEW YEARS AGO, GENERAL

MOTORS WAS ON -- WELL, IT

WAS GOING DOWN THE TUBES

VERY QUICKLY.

AND EVERYBODY WAS SAYING,

WHAT CAN WE DO?

WHAT CAN WE DO?

WHAT CAN WE DO?

WELL, ON THIS PROGRAM, I

SUGGESTED SOMETHING THAT I

THINK WAS FINALLY

FOLLOWED.

I SAID, FIRST OF ALL,

GENERAL MOTORS SHOULD BE

BROUGHT INTO BANKRUPTCY.

AND NOBODY IS GOING TO

GIVE IT FINANCING UNLESS

THEY GET PREFERENCE.

IN THE BANKRUPTCY LAWS, IT

TAKES PREFERENCE OVER

EVERYTHING ELSE.

I SAID, THE UNITED STATES

GOVERNMENT CAN LOAN MONEY

TO THAT CORPORATION, AND

GET DEBTOR FINANCING, AND

GET A PREFERENTIAL

TREATMENT, AND GENERAL

MOTORS WAS CLEANED UP WITH

ALL OF THE DEBT THEY HAD.

THEY HAD PENSION

OBLIGATIONS.

THEY HAD ALL KINDS OF

OBLIGATIONS.

THEY HAD PROPERTY TAXES,

ETC., ETC.

ALL THAT WAS CLEANED UP IN

THE BANKRUPTCY.

THEY GOT NEW FINANCING,

AND LO AND BEHOLD, G.M.

HAS TURNED AROUND IS

MAKING ALL KINDS OF

WONDERFUL CARS AND IS

MAKING A LOT OF MONEY.

WELL, TERRY, I KNOW THE

CITY IS FACING THE SAME

THING, AND I DON'T KNOW IF

DETROIT IS GOING TO MAKE

IT, BUT IT COULD.

Terry: WELL, IT IS

THE LARGEST BANKRUPT CITY

IN U.S. HISTORY, BUT THEY

SAY IT IS MAKING A

COMEBACK.

PEOPLE THAT WERE AFRAID

TO GO TO DOWNTOWN DETROIT

BEFORE NOW LIVE DOWN

THERE.

IT ALMOST IS STARTING TO

BECOME THE PLACE TO BE.

YOU TRY TO BUY A LOFT DOWN

THERE, AND YOU'RE GOING TO

PAY TOP DOLLAR.

Terry: WE HAVE MORE

ON THE REVITALIZATION OF

DETROIT, AFTER THIS.

Pat: FIVE YEARS AGO,

THE CITY OF DETROIT MADE

BIG HEADLINES, AND THEY

WERE NOT GOOD.

FINANCIAL PROBLEMS LED THE

MOTOR CITY TO DECLARE THE

LARGEST MUNICIPAL

BANKRUPTCY IN U.S.

HISTORY.

THANKFULLY FOR RESIDENTS,

IT DOESN'T END THERE.

AS MARK MARTIN SHOWS, THE

CITY IS EXPERIENCING A

DRAMATIC COMEBACK.

Reporter: THIS LARGE

HOUSING CONSTRUCTION SITE

MIGHT BE CONSIDERED AN

EYESORE IN OTHER AMERICAN

CITIES, BUT IN DETROIT, IT

IS A SYMBOL OF REBIRTH.

RUSH PARK, NEAR DOWNTOWN

DETROIT, IS ONE OF THE

AREAS COMING TO LIFE

AGAIN.

FOR EXAMPLE, THE CHAIR OF

THIS AREA'S DEVELOPMENT

CORPORATION SAYS 10 YEARS

AGO THE AREA WAS FULL OF

DILAPIDATED BUILDINGS.

NOW A REHABBED VICTORIAN

MANSION HERE CAN BE SOLD

FOR AS MUCH AS

$3.5 MILLION.

WE HAVE A NEW MAYOR.

WE HAVE A LOT OF

INVESTORS.

WE HAD A LOT OF VACANT

LAND THAT WASN'T OVERLY

PRICED.

WE HAVE A LOT OF EAGER

PEOPLE WANTING TO DEVELOP

AND BRING BACK SOME LIFE

TO DETROIT.

AND IT HAS BEEN EXCITING.

IT HAS BEEN VERY EXCITING.

Reporter: WHILE SOME

VICTORIAN MANSIONS STILL

NEED WORK, SIGNS OF

PROGRESS ARE ALL ALREADY.

CHECK OUT THIS BEAUTIFULLY

REMODELED HOME.

AND ALL OF THIS ACTIVITY

BRINGS IN MUCH-NEEDED

PEOPLE.

THIS NEIGHBORHOOD IS

WITHIN WALKING DIFFERENCE

OF THE DETROIT TIGERS PARK

AND THE LIONS FORD FIELD.

PEOPLE WHO WERE AFRAID

TO GO DOW DOWNTOWN DETROIT NOW

LIVE THERE.

RIGHT NOW, YOU GO DOWN AND

YOU TRY TO BUY A LOFT DOWN

THERE IS AND YOU'RE GOING

TO PAY TOP DOLLAR.

Reporter: JON ECKERLY

BELIEVES DETROIT IS

DEFINITELY IN COMEBACK

MODE, A WELCOMED RELIEF

FROM THE 2013 BANKRUPTCY.

IT WAS SCARY.

I NOTICED A LOT OF PEOPLE

FILED SUIT.

I HAD WORKED WITH A LOT OF

BUILDERS, AND IT WAS A

CHAIN REACTION.

DETROIT FILED BANKRUPTCY,

AND THE NEXT THING YOU

KNOW, EVERYBODY STOPS

BUYING HOMES.

A LOT OF THEIR JOBS WERE

LEAVING.

AND YOU HAD A LOT OF

PEOPLE THAT WERE MONEY

SCARED.

Reporter: WHAT LED TO

THE LARGEST MUNICIPAL

BANKRUPTCY IN U.S.

HISTORY?

FORMER STATE TREASURER AND

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE ANDY

DILLON SAID A NUMBER OF

FACTORS WERE TO BLAME.

THE MAIN DRIVING FORCES

WOULD BE THE LOSS OF THE

MIDDLE MARKET

MANUFACTURING JOBS AND THE

STRUGGLES OF THE K-12

SYSTEM.

YOU KNOW, YOUNG FAMILIES

LIVING IN DETROIT DIDN'T,

I BELIEVE, FEEL

COMFORTABLE THEY COULD GET

THEIR KIDS AN EDUCATION.

Reporter: DETROIT HAS

DEFINITELY SEEN HARD

TIMES.

IN FACT, THIS CITY, WHICH

WAS BUILT FOR NEARLY TWO

MILLION RESIDENTS, NOW HAS

LESS THAN 700,000.

THE ECONOMY CRASHED,

AND THAT REALLY IMPACTED

THIS COMMUNITY, MORE SO

THAN ANY OTHER COMMUNITY

IN THE UNITED STATES

BECAUSE THE AUTO INDUSTRY

WAS S SO TIED INTO WHAT WAS

HAPPENING.

Reporter: MICHAEL

O'CALLAHAN SEES IT MORE AS

A BLESSING THAN A CURSE.

THE REALITY IS THE CITY

WOULD NEVER HAVE GOTTEN

OUT WITHOUT THE BANKRUPTCY

AND THE REORGANIZATION.

SO FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE,

IT JUST DID AMAZING THINGS

IN GETTING THE CITY BACK

ON TRACK.

Reporter: IN 2014,

DETROIT EMERGED FROM

BANKRUPTCY.

AND AFTER THREE STRAIGHT

YEARS OF BALANCED BUDGETS,

THE STATE GAVE FINANCIAL

LEADERSHIP BACK TO THE

MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL.

O'CALLAHAN CREDITS

INVESTORS AND FOUNDATIONS

WITH HELPING LEAD THE

COMEBACK.

SO THESE FOLKS CAME IN,

AND IN MANY, MANY CASES

THEY TOOK BUILDINGS THAT

HAD BEEN SHUTTERED FOR

YEARS AND YEARS AND

REINVESTED IN THEM, AND

THAT ALLOWED THEM TO BRING

YOUNG PEOPLE INTO THE CITY

TO WORK.

Reporter: AND HE

BELIEVES DIVINE

INTERVENTION HELPED

REVITALIZE MOTOWN.

WE HAVE TO ATTRIBUTE IT

TO GOD.

A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE

PRAYING.

THERE WERE 24-HOUR

PRAYER NOT ON JUST CERTAIN

DAYS, WAS RELEASED FOR THE

CITY TO CONSIDER A WHOLE

REVIVAL MENTALITY.

IN OTHER WORDS, WE CAN BE

WHAT WE'VE NEVER BEEN.

WE CAN DO WHAT WE'VE NEVER

DONE.

Reporter: AND WHILE

THERE IS STILL A LOT OF

WORK AHEAD, DILLON

BELIEVES THE PEOPLE OF

THIS CITY CAN EVENTUALLY

COMPLETE THIS MIRACLE

TRANSFORMATION.

THERE IS A BIG PART OF

DETROIT THAT HAS TO SHARE

IN THEIR RECOVERY.

AND IT IS -- IT IS

STARTING TO.

THE MAYOR IS REALLY

FOCUSED ON THE

NEIGHBORHOODS.

BUT IT IS SO BIG YOU CAN'T

DO IT OVERNIGHT.

SO IT IS GOING TO BE A

PROCESS.

Reporter: MARK

MARTIN, CBN NEWS, DETROIT.

Pat: WELL, OUR

CONGRATULATIONS.

YOU KNOW, TERRY, THEY HAD

AN ART MUSEUM THAT WAS

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS.

THEY HAD TREASURES, ART

TREASURES, AND SOME

THOUGHT, OKAY, WE'RE IN

BANKRUPTCY, LET'S SELL OFF

THESE THINGS.

BUT I THINK THEY RESISTED

THAT.

AND THIS WAS A FABULOUS

COLLECTION OF PAINTINGS.

AND HOPEFULLY THAT STAYED

INTACT, AND IT GIVES THEM

SOMETHING AT THE CENTER.

BUT THAT WAS A GREAT CITY.

I MEAN, DETROIT WAS AN

INCREDIBLE CITY.

Terry: YOU KNOW, JUST

LISTENING TO SOME OF WHAT

HAS BEEN SAID HERE, IT'S A

PAINFUL OPPORTUNITY, I

THINK, FOR IT TO BE EVEN

BETTER THAN IT WAS BEFORE.

YOU KNOW, MAYBE MORE

DIVERSIFIED BUSINESS-WISE,

AND MORE OPPORTUNITY, INTO

NEIGHBORHOODS, CLEANING UP

SOME OF THE OLD.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THE

BIBLE TALKS ABOUT HAVING

YOUR CONSCIENCE CLEARED

FROM DEAD WORKS THAT YOU

MIGHT SERVE THE LIVING

GOD.

AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT

BANKRUPTCY CAN DO.

THERE COMES A TIME WHERE

YOU SAY, OKAY, WE MADE A

BUNCH OF MISTAKES.

AND LET'S JUST FLUSH THEM

DOWN THE DRAIN, AND LET'S

START ANEW.

AND THAT'S WHAT BANKRUPTCY

IS ALL ABOUT.

IT GETS THEM OUT OF THESE

LEGACY DEALS THEY HAVE

MADE THAT ARE IMPROVODENT.

AND ALL OF THE CITY

WORKERS WERE ASKING FOR

TOO MUCH MONEY.

THEY CUT A LOT OF THOSE,

AND THE DEBTS GET PAID

OFF, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN

THERE IS A NEW VITALITY.

WE WISH DETROIT THE VERY,

VERY BEST.

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

> UP NEXT, AN ALCOHOLIC

GETS HOOKED ON OXYCONTIN.

OXYCONTIN IS WAY

BETTER.

THE HIGH IS BETTER, THE

CALM IS BETTER, THE FOCUS

IS BETTER, AND YOU'RE NOT

SLURRING YOUR WORDS.

NOBODY CAN SMELL OXYCONTIN

ON YOU.

IT IS, LIKE, WAY BETTER.

Terry: WATCH THIS

WOMAN FACE HER MOMENT OF

TRUTH IN THE BACK SEAT OF

A POLICE CAR.

INTERPRETER MARY LOU WAS

A WIFE, MOM AND A SCHOOL

TEACHER.

SHE WAS ALSO A FUNCTIONING

ALCOHOLIC.

UNTIL THE DAY SHE HAD HIP

REPLACEMENT SURGE.

THAT'S WHEN MARY LOU FOUND

A BETTER TUAY TO DEA WAY TO DEAL WITH

HER ANXIETY, AND BEFORE

LONG, SHE WAS HOOKED.

Reporter: SINCE

ADOLESCENCE, MARY LOU

DEPEND ON SOMETHING TO

TAKE THE EDGE OFF.

IT STARTED WITH THE

ENDORPHIN RUSH SHE GOT

FROM EXERCISING.

TO FEEL INSIDE THERE IS

SOMETHING, YOU'RE NOT AT

PEACE.

AND WHEN I START MOVING

PHYSICALLY, DOING THINGS

PHYSICALLY, THEN I FEEL

BETTER.

Reporter: SHE EVEN

TOOK UP BODY BUILDING FOR

A TIME.

NO MATTER WHAT SHE DID,

SHE DROVE HERSELF TO

PERFORM AT THE HIGHEST

STANDARDS.

EVERY MORNING SHE WAS UP

BEFORE DAWN TO RUN FIVE

MILES.

MISSING A DAY WOULD FEEL

LIKE A FAILURE.

I FELT LIKE I WAS

FOCUSED.

I FELT LIKE I NEEDED

SOMETHING TO KEEP MY

FOCUSED.

I HAD A PLAN.

I KNEW WHAT I WAS DOING

EVERY HOUR OF THE DAY.

Reporter: AS THE

YEARS PASSED, SHE KEPT UP

WITH THE DEMANDS OF HER

TEACHING POSITION, RAISING

KIDS, AND RUNNING A

HOUSEHOLD.

EXERCISE DIDN'T GIVE HER

THE SAME HIGH THAT IT USED

TO.

ONCE HER SON WENT OFF TO

COLLEGE, MARY LOU NEEDED A

DRINK AT NIGHT TO CALM

DOWN.

THEN SHE STARTED DRINKING

IN THE MORNING, BEFORE

SCHOOL.

BEFORE LONG, SHE WAS

UNABLE TO HOLD DOWN HER

JOB.

IT GOT TO A POINT WHERE

I COULDN'T EVEN JUST

CONTROL IT AT ALL.

IF I DIDN'T DRINK, I WOULD

BE SHAKING SO BAD IT WOULD

BE AWFUL.

AND THEN YOU ARE DRINKING

BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO, AND

NOT BECAUSE YOU REALLY

WANT TO ANYMORE.

Reporter: HER

HUSBAND, RICK, WAS AWARE

OF HER DRINKING, AND ALONG

WITH HER KIDS, HE URGED

HER TO GET HELP.

AT THE WORST POINT, HE HAD

TO FORCE HER INTO BEING

HOSPITALIZED FOR

ALCOHOLISM.

I HAD TO D DO IT.

I HAD TO DO IT.

SHE RESISTED IT AND SHE

WAS ANGRY.

SHE WROTE MY NASTY

LETTERS.

SHE HATED ME AT THE TIME.

Reporter: WITHIN TWO

YEARS, SHE WENT TO SEVEN

DIFFERENT REHAB PROGRAMS.

WHAT WENT WRONG, I

THINK, AFTER THAT, IN A

LOT OF CASES, WAS JUST

FOLLOWUP, AND STICKING TO

THE PLAN AND THE PROGRAM

THAT THE TREATMENT CENTER

HAD RECOMMENDED.

SHE ALWAYS SEEMED TO FALL

OFF OF THAT PROGRAM.

Reporter: MARY LOU

HAD ALWAYS BELIEVED IN

JESUS CHRIST AND OFTEN

ASKED HIM FOR HELP.

WHEN SHE FOUND OUT ABOUT A

LIFE RECOVERY GROUP

MEETING AT A CHURCH, SHE

STARTED ATTENDING TWICE A

WEEK, OFTEN DRUNK.

I KNEW I NEEDED HELP,

AND I KNEW GOD WAS THE

ANSWER.

I KNEW DEEP DOWN THAT WAS

THE ANSWER, BUT I STILL

COULDN'T STOP.

MY MIND COULD DO IT.

MY HEART COULD DO IT.

BUT MY BODY WOULD NOT DO

IT.

Reporter: THEN, AFTER

A HIP REPLACEMENT SURGERY

AT 48 YEARS OLD, MARY LOU

NO LONGER NEEDED TO DRINK.

SHE HAD FOUND SOMETHING

THAT HELPED HER RETURN TO

WORK.

OXYCONTIN IS WAY

BETTER.

THE HIGH IS BETTER.

THE CALM IS BETTER.

THE FOCUS IS BETTER.

AND YOU'RE NOT SLURRING

YOUR WORDS.

NOBODY CAN SMELL OXYCONTIN

ON YOU.

IT IS, LIKE, WAY BETTER.

Reporter: FOR FIVE

AND A HALF YEARS SHE

STEADILY INCREASED HER USE

OF OXYCONTIN.

WHEN SHE COULD NO LONGER

GET IT, SHE TURNED TO

HEROIN.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE

CONSTANTLY THINKING, HOW

CAN I MAKE CONNECTIONS

WITH THIS DEALER?

HOW ARE THEY GOING TO GET

IT TO ME?

ALL DAY LONG, OBSESSED,

OBSESSED, OBSESSED.

IT GOT BAD.

IT GOT BAD.

THERE IS NO DOUBT IT GOD

BAD.

IT GOT

BAD.

IT CREATED A STRAIN ON OUR

FAMILY, IT CREATED A

STRAIN ON OUR MARRIAGE.

BUT I STILL SAW THE PERSON

I MET AND LOVED AND

MARRIED MANY YEARS AGO.

I PRAYED THAT THE LORD

WOULD HELP HER OVERCOME

HER ADDICTION, MAKE HER

WHOLE.

SO THAT WE COULD CONTINUE

ON WITH OUR LIFE TOGETHER.

GOD, PLEASE FREE ME

FROM THIS.

GOD, PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP

ON ME.

I KNOW THIS IS WRONG.

I NEED HELP.

I NEED HELP.

BUT I JUST DON'T KNOW HOW.

Reporter: AFTER ONE

AND A HALF YEARS OF HEROIN

ADDICTION, SHE WAS

ARRESTED FOR A D.U.I.

WHILE IN THE BACK

SEATTLE OF A POLICE

CRUISER, SHE DECIDED TIME

WAS UP.

I HAVE TRIED EVERY

SINGLE THING AND I HAVE NO

IDEA WHAT TO DO ANYMORE.

GOD, YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE

IT.

I JUST CAN'T DO THIS

ANYMORE.

I GIVE UP.

I'LL DO WHATEVER.

Reporter: THIS TIME,

WHEN MARY LOU WENT INTO

REHAB, SHE WAS

COOPERATIVE.

SHE ALSO BEGAN STUDYING

THE BIBLE INTENTLY.

I WANTED TO KNOW MORE.

I WANTED TO READ IT.

I WANTED TO UNDERSTAND IT.

AND AFTER A WHILE, IT

STARTED, LIKE, REALLY --

IT WAS WHAT I STARTED TO

CRAVE.

AND I I WAS PRAYING WAS PRAYING, AND I

JUST LET GOD TAKE OVER.

HE JUST CAME IN.

HE JUST CAME RIGHT IN AND

TOOK OVER.

IT WAS A TREMENDOUS

RELIEF.

SEEING THIS ME METAMORPHOSIS

BRING MARY LOU BACK TO THE

PERSON SHE IS DEEP DOWN

INSIDE.

SHE IS A KIND AND

COMPASSIONATE, GENEROUS

PERSON.

Reporter: MARY LOU

HAS BEEN SOBER SINCE 2007.

SHE VOLUNTEERS TO HELP

THOSE WHO ARE STILL

ADDICTS FIND HOPE.

SHE SAYS THAT HER

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

GIVES HER THE FREEDOM TO

BE HERSELF IN EVERY AREA

OF LIFE.

GOD GAVE ME THE GIFT OF

LIFE AGAIN, OF LIFE AGAIN.

CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT?

IT'S A MIRACLE, AN

ABSOLUTE MIRACLE.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

JESUS SAID THAT'S WHY HE

CAME.

I'VE COME THAT YOU MIGHT

HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT

ABUNDANTLY.

NOT JUST A LITTLE.

NOT JUST GET BY LIFE, BUT

ABUNDANT LIFE.

MORE THAN YOU COULD ASK

FOR OR IMAGINE.

YOU KNOW, SO MANY TIMES IN

LIFE, THOUGH GOD STANDS

THERE, ARMS OUTSTRETCHED,

INVITING US, TO COME HOME

TO HIS HEART, TO SURRENDER

TO HIS LOVE AND HIS

PROVISION AND HIS

GOODNESS, WE FIND IDOLS OF

OUR OWN MAKING.

AN IDOL IS ANYTHING WE PUT

IN PLACE OF GOD IN OUR

LIVES, THE PLACE HE IS

SUPPOSED TO HAVE.

IN MARY LOU'S SCENARIO, IT

WAS EXERCISE, IT WAS

ALCOHOL, IT WAS OXYCONTIN,

IT WAS HEROIN, ALL TRYING

TO QUELL AND TO STILL THAT

ANXIETY, THAT ANXIOU ANXIOUSNESS

INSIDE OF HER.

JESUS, CALLED THE PRINCE

OF PEACE.

PEACE.

I KNOW THERE ARE SOME OF

YOU WHO ARE WATCHING TODAY

WHO SAY, I WANT THAT

PEACE.

I NEED THAT PEACE.

I WANT TO QUIET THIS WAR

THAT GOES ON INSIDE OF ME.

I WANT TO KNOW WHAT IT

MEANS TO BE STILL.

GOD CAN GIVE YOU THAT.

DID YOU HEAR WHAT MARY LOU

SAID?

WHEN SHE GOT TO THE PLACE

WHERE SHE FINALLY CAME TO

THE END OF HERSELF AND SHE

SURRENDERED -- YOU KNOW,

IN A.A., ALCOHOLICS

ANONYMOUS, THEY SAY YOU

GET SICK AND TIRED OF

BEING SICK AND TIRED.

WHEN SHE FINALLY GOT TO

THAT PLACE AND SHE

SURRENDERED, SHE SAID GOD

CAME IN.

YOU SEE, HE IS WAITING FOR

YOU TO SAY -- NOT THAT

ANXIOUSNESS SHE CRIED OUT

FOR YEARS, GOD, I NEED

SOMETHING, GOD, I NEED

SOMETHING.

YOU'VE GOT TO STOP AND

SAY, ENOUGH OF ME.

I JUST WANT YOU, JESUS.

AND I'M WILLING TO

SURRENDER EVERYTHING THAT

I AM AND ALL THAT I HAVE

TO RECEIVE YOU INTO MY

HEART AND LIFE.

I RECOGNIZE I CAN'T DO IT

WITHOUT YOU.

I DON'T WANT TO DO IT

WITHOUT YOU.

YOU SEE, FOR A WHILE,

ESPECIALLY WHEN WE

STRUGGLE WITH ADDICTIONS,

WE THINK, I CAN FIX THIS.

I CAN WORK THIS OUT.

BUT THEN DID YOU HEAR HER

SAY, YOU GET TO THE PLACE

WHERE YOU'RE NOT DOING IT

BECAUSE YOU WANT TO

ANYMORE.

YOU'RE DOING IT BECAUSE

YOU'VE BECOME A SLAVE TO

THAT THING.

WHATEVER IT MIGHT BE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS

FOR YOU, BUT I KNOW IF IT

IS ANYTHING BUT JESUS, IT

IS NOT WHAT YOU WERE

CREATED FOR.

GOD LOVES YOU WITH AN

EVERLASTING LOVE.

HE IS A GOOD, GOOD FATHER.

HE GETS YOU.

HE KNOWS WHAT MAKES YOU

TICK.

THE BIBLE SAYS HE KNEW YOU

BEFORE YOU WERE EVEN

FORMED IN YOUR MOTHERS

WOMB.

THAT'S PRETTY AMAZING, IF

YOU STOP TO THINK ABOUT

IT.

AND HE HAD A PLAN AND A

PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE.

YOU WERE CREATED WITH

INTENTION.

DON'T MISS OUT ON THAT.

IF YOU DON'T KNOW JESUS,

TODAY IS THE DAY FOR YOU

TO DO WHAT MARY LOU DID.

JUST STOP RIGHT NOW AND

PRAY WITH ME RIGHT THIS

MOMENT.

JESUS, I AM DONE.

I HAVE COME TO THE END OF

MYSELF.

I DON'T WANT ME ANYMORE.

I DON'T WANT MY SOLUTIONS.

I DON'T WANT ALL OF THIS

JUNK I'VE ALLOWED INTO MY

LIFE, INTO MY THINKING,

INTO MY HEART.

I'M LAYING IT ALL DOWN,

SURRENDERING MY LIFE AND

ALL THAT I AM TO YOU.

JESUS, BE THE LORD OF MY

LIFE.

BE THE SAVIOR OF MY SOUL.

BE THE REDEEMER WHO BUYS

BACK WHAT I HAVE FOOLISHLY

SOLD AND LOST.

I NEED A NEW BEGINNING,

GOD, AND I'M ASKING YOU

TODAY TO INFILTRATE ME

WITH WHO YOU ARE, WITH

YOUR HOLY SPIRIT.

TOUCH ME.

CHANGE ME.

TEACH ME.

CHANGE THE WAY I THINK.

CHANGE THE WAY I SEE

THINGS.

AND HELP ME TO LIVE FOR

YOU.

I GIVE IT ALL TO YOU, AND

I WANT TO RECEIVE ALL YOU

HAVE TO GIVE ME TODAY.

IN JESUS' NAME I PRAY.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE JUST PRAYED THAT

PRAYER, YOU'VE BEGAN A

JOURNEY, A LIFE

TURNAROUND.

WHAT DO YOU DO NEXT?

WELL, PAT HAS PUT TOGETHER

A PACT FOR YOU CALLED "A

NEW DAY," FILLED WITH

INFORMATION.

HOW DO YOU BECOME A

FOLLOWER OF JESUS?

WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE?

IT IS FREE AND ITS YOURS

FOR THE ASKING.

EVEN THE PHONE CALL IS

FREE: 1-800-700-7000.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I JUST

PRAYED THAT PRAYER AND I'D

LIKE "THE NEW DAY" PACKET,

AND WE'LL GET IT OUT TO

YOU RIGHT AWAY.

Pat: THANK YOU,

TERRY.

> CAROL SAYS, I HAVE A

2 -YEAR-OLD SO 2-YEAR-OLD SON WHO WAS

RAISED A CHRISTIAN AND WHO

HAS TURNED AWAY FROM THE

LORD.

CAN YOU PLEASE OFFER ANY

ADVICE AND LITERATURE THAT

WOULD HELP OPEN HIS EYES

TO GOD AGAIN?"

WE'VE GOT YOUR QUESTIONS

AND HONEST ANSWERS COME COMING

UP LATER.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

FEWER TEENS IN AMERICA ARE

SMOKING, DRINKING, AND

HAVING SEX.

THAT'S THE FINDING OF A

NEW STUDY FROM THE CENTERS

FOR DISEASE CONTROL.

EVERY TWO YEARS THE C.D.C.

SURVEY ASKS TEENS ABOUT

100 QUESTIONS ON A WIDE

RANGE OF HEALTH TOPICS.

THE LATEST FINDINGS

COMPARE RESULTS OVER THE

LAST 25 YEARS, SHOWING NOT

AS MANY TEENS ARE USING

ALCOHOL, TOBACCO OR

ILLEGAL DRUGS OR ENGAGING

IN SEXUAL ACTIVITY.

THE STUDY ALSO FOUND,

HOWEVER, THAT FEWER TEENS

ARE DRINKING MILK.

> THE U.S. FOOD AND DRUG

ADMINISTRATION IS EXPECTED

TO DECIDE SOON WHETHER TO

APPROVE A PRESCRIPTION

DRUG MADE FROM THE

MARIJUANA PLANT.

THE MEDICINE WOULD TREAT

RARE EPILEPSY CONDITIONS

WHERE THERE ARE LITTLE TO

NO APPROVED TREATMENT

OPTIONS.

THE BRITISH COMPANY BEHIND

THE DRUG SAYS IT DOES NOT

CONTAIN THE PROPERTIES

THAT MAKE PEOPLE HIGH,

LIKE MEDICAL MARIJUANA

DOES.

THE LATEST FROM CBN NEWS

BY GOING TO OUR WEBSITE

AT cbnnews.com.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, IT'S

Terry: WELL, IT'S

TIME FOR YOUR QUESTIONS

AND HONEST ANSWERS.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM CAROL.

"HI, PAT, I HAVE A

2 2-YEAR-OLD SON WHO WAS

RAISED CHRISTIAN.

SINCE HE WENT TO COLLEGE

AND THERE AFTER, HE HAS

TURNED AWAY FROM THE LORD.

HIS HAPPY DEMEANOR HAS

CHANGED TO DEPRESSED AND

SELF-DESTRUCTIVE.

HE IS BINGEING AT TIMES ON

ALCOHOL.

HE SAYS HE DOESN'T BELIEVE

IN GOD ANYMORE.

AND HE CAN'T SEEM TO GET

OVER AN ON AND OFF

RELATIONSHIP WITH A GIRL

WHO WAS AN ATHEIST.

CAN YOU PLEASE OFFER ANY

ADVICE AND LITERATURE THAT

WOULD HELP OPEN HIS EYES

TO GOD AGAIN?"

Pat: THE ADVICE,

FIRST OF ALL, IS A SIMPLE

SCRIPTURE: "IT IS

APPOINTED UNTO MAN ONCE TO

DIE AND TO FACE THE

JUDGMENT."

NOW, THE NEXT THING IS I

RECOMMEND READING THE

PSALMS, PROVERBS

PARTICULARLY, AND JUST

LOOK AT THE WISDOM THAT IS

IN THEM.

YOU ASKED FOR A BOOK.

I THINK -- WHAT WAS THE

BOOK THAT WAS SO POPULAR,

"THE PURPOSE-DRIVEN LIFE."

EVERYBODY LIKED THAT.

THAT MIGHT BE SOMETHING

YOU WOULD LIKE TO READ.

THERE ARE SO MANY OTHERS.

THE BIGGEST THING IS HE

HAS GOT TO BE CONFRONTED

WITH THE FACT THAT THERE

IS A GOD IN HEAVEN, AND

HE'S GOT TO MEET HIM.

AND ONE DAY -- IT IS

APPOINTED ONTO MAN ONCE TO

DIE AND THEN AFTER

THAT,THTHAT,THE JUDGEMENT.

Terry: "RECENTLY OUR

DAUGHTER SAID SHE WANTS TO

DO TEACHINGS.

THE TEACHINGS HE GIVES ARE

VERY ADULT FOCUSED AND MY

DAUGHTER IS 13 AND WOULD

PREFER TO DO A DEVOTIONAL

TIME WITH ME.

I'VE TRIED TO GET ACROSS

TO HIM THE IMPORTANCE OF

NOT FORCING HER, AS IT

WILL PUT HER OFF HAVING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

HE SAYS IT IS NOT A

DEMOCRACY, AND SHE HAS TO

DO HIS TEACHINGS.

DO YOU THINK THAT IT IS

EXTREME TO EXPECT A

TEENAGER TO DO TEACHINGS

SEVEN DAYS A WEEK?

AND WHAT SHOULD I DO IF HE

DOESN'T LISTEN TO MY

ADVICE?"

Pat: YOU MARRIED HIM.

HE IS A HARD-NOSED -- I

DON'T KNOW WHERE HE GOT

HIS TEACHING.

BUT HE PROBABLY HAD AN

ABUSIVE FATHER WHO IS

DEMANDING, AND HE IS

COPYING LIKE HIS DADDY.

BUT THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

HE IS SETTING THAT CHILD

UP FOR FAILURE.

YOU CANNOT DO THAT SORT OF

THING.

EVERY NIGHT YOU'RE GOING

TO LISTEN TO MY TEACHING,

SEVEN DAYS A WEEK?

COME OFF IT.

IT JUST ISN'T NORMAL.

AND CHILDREN HAVE TO

DEVELOP AND THEY HAVE GOT

TO FIND THINGS ON THEIR

OWN.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS

CREATE A LOVING

ENVIRONMENT, JUST

SURROUNDED WITH LOVE, AND

GIVE THEM THE WORD, AND

LIVE FOR THEM THE LIFE

THAT YOU WANT, AND THEN

SHARE WITH THEM LITTLE BY

LITTLE BY LITTLE AS THEY

WANT TO KNOW.

AND THEY WILL PICK IT UP

AND THEY WILL DO WHAT YOU

DO BECAUSE THAT'S THE WAY

THEY ARE.

BUT YOU TRY TO JAM

SOMETHING DOWN A

TEENAGER'S THROAT AND

THEY'LL REBEL AND THEY'LL

KICK AGAINST IT, AND THEN

THEY'LL HATE RELIGION.

AND WHEN THEY'RE 21, OR

THEY'RE EMANCIPATED, 18,

WHATEVER YEAR IT IS, THEY

WILL TURN AWAY FROM

EVERYTHING.

YOUR HUSBAND -- SOMEBODY

NEEDS TO TALK TO THAT MAN.

THIS HARD-NOSED

FUNDAMENTALIST JUST

DOESN'T WORK.

Terry: REUBEN SAYS,

"I WAS RETURNING TO WORK A

FEW WEEKS AGO, AND MY WIFE

OF NEARLY 20 YEARS SAID

SHE WANTED A DIVORCE.

I FEEL THAT HER NEGATIVE

OWEMOTIONS ARE BEING FUELED

BY HER MOTHER, WHO IS A

BITTER AND ANGRY WOMAN.

I LOVE MY WIFE AND I DON'T

WANT THIS.

I PRAYED VERY HARD FOR

RECONCILIATION, HOWEVER,

IT SEEMS THAT THIS WILL

COME TO FRUITION.

HOW DO I PRAY FOR

FORGIVENESS?

I DON'T WANT TO BE ANGRY

AT MY MOTHER-IN-LAW.

I WANT PEACE FOR HER, EVEN

SHOTHOUGH SHE IS CAUSING ME

MY BELOVED WIFE."

Pat: IF I WERE YOU, I

WOULD FIGHT FOR YOUR WIFE.

FOR THIS A MAN SHOULD

LEAVE HIS MOTHER AND CLEVE

TO YOUR WIFE.

YOU LEAVE YOUR MOTHER AND

FATHER AND CLEVE TO YOUR

WIFE.

THAT WOMAN HAS LEFT HER

MOTHER AND FATHER AND

CLEVES TO HER HUSBAND.

YOU NEED TO CONFRONT THAT

MOTHER-IN-LAW AND SAY,

YOU'RE DOING DAMAGE TO

YOUR DAUGHTER AND YOUR

CHILDREN AND

GRANDCHILDREN, AND I'M NOT

GOING TO STAND FOR IT.

LET HER KNOW THAT, AND

SHE'LL BACK OFF -- I

REALLY BELIEVE THAT.

YOU'RE DOING SOMETHING

THAT IS TERRIBLE --

CONFRONT THAT WOMAN.

SHE IS SINNING AGAINST

GOD.

Terry: OKAY.

THIS IS ARTICLE LIE ARLENE WHO SAYS

"IS THERE A THOUSAND YEAR

OF CHRIST OR IS THE END OF

TRIBULATION THE END OF

TIME ON THIS EARTH?"

Pat: THERE IS

PRE-MILLENNIAL AND

POST-MILLENNIAL, AND SOME

WHO SAY I DON'T BELIEVE IN

MILLENNIAL AT ALL.

Terry: DO YOU THINK

IT IS CONFUSING -- WELL,

NOT CONFUSING --

Pat: WHY IS THAT

THOUSAND YEARS -- IT IS

MENTIONED ONCE IN THE

BIBLE, THAT WE'LL LIVE AND

REIGN WITH HIM FOR A

THOUSAND YEARS.

IS THIS THE TIME OF THE

THOUSAND YEARS?

THERE ARE SOME WHO THINK

SO, THAT WE'RE IN THE

MIDDLE OF THE MILLIO MILLENNIAL

RIGHT NOW.

JESUS IS GOING TO COME

BACK AND HE WILL ESTABLISH

HIS REIGN.

MAYBE FOR A THOUSAND YEARS

WE'LL REIGN AND RULE WITH

THEM, AND THEN HE IS GOING

TO JUDGE THE DEVIL AND DO

AWAY WITH ALL OF THAT

EVIL.

A LOT OF GOOD PEOPLE

DISAGREE ON THAT ONE.

THAT'S MY TAKE ON IT.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: WELL, THAT'S

ALL OF THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR YOUR QUESTIONS.

BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

SENDING THEM IN.

> UP NEXT, A FOOTBALL

INJURY LEAVES A PLAYER IN

MASSIVE PLAIN.

IT WAS DEVASTATING.

I'VE NEVER EXPERIENCED

PAIN LIKE I DID AT THAT

MOMENT.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

MAN GOT BACK ON THE

PLAYING FIELD AFTER FOUR

YEARS OF UNRELENTING PAIN.

> PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO

BE PRAYING FOR YOU AND

YOUR NEEDS, SO STAY WITH

US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Pat: WELL, YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

AND WE'RE SO HAPPY TO HAVE

YOU WITH US.

I WANT TO SHOW YOU A

MIRACLE -- YOU LIKE

MIRACLES?

THIS IS A MIRACLE.

DOMINIC BARBARUOLO ENDURED

FOUR YEARS OF EXCRUCIATING

PAIN AFTER A FOOTBALL

INJURY, AND HIS DOCTORS

COULDN'T HELP HIM.

AND THEN ONE MORNING

DOMINIC WAS N INSTANTLY

HEALED IN HIS OWN HOME.

I WAS GOING AFTER THE

RUNNER BACK, AND AFTER

NOWHERE THE DEFENSE TIFF DEFENSIVE

TACKLE CAME AND HIT ME.

I FELT A POP AND ALMOST

LIKE A TEAR.

AND I GOT UP, AND I WAS

LIMPING, AND I WAS, LIKE,

OKAY, I'M GOOD.

I'M GOING TO STAY IN.

THE FOLLOWING PLAY WAS THE

SAME PLAY, EXCEPT WHEN I

CUT TO GO TOWARDS THE

RUNNING BACK, MY KNEE GAVE

OUT.

I NEVER EXPERIENCED PAIN

LIKE I DID AT THAT MOMENT.

Reporter: THE

EXCRUCIATING PAIN WOULD

NOT GO AWAY.

HE WENT TO SEVERAL

DOCTORS, BUT M.R.I.s AND

CAT SCANS DIDN'T REVEAL

ANY TEARS THAT COULD BE

CAUSING THE PAIN.

IT WAS DEVASTATING,

KNOWING THAT THE DOCTORS

COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING

WRONG, AND KNOWING YOU

HAVE THIS PAIN EVERY DAY.

IT WOULD HURT, ESPECIALLY

WHEN I GOT UP -- IF I WAS

LAYING DOWN AND I GOT UP

AND STARTED TO WALK, YOU

KIND OF HAD THAT PAIN

WHERE YOU TRY NOT TO PUT

PRESSURE ON IT.

YOU JUST KIND OF FLINCH.

Reporter: HE NEVER

WENT BACK TO PLAYING

FOOTBALL, AND HE ENDURED

THE PAIN FOR NEARLY FOUR

YEARS.

THEN ONE MORNING HE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I WENT OUT THERE JUST

IN TIME FOR THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

I HEARD THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE SAYING...

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE WITH A SPRAIN

IN YOUR RIGHT KNEE, AND

GOD HAS HEARD YOUR PRAYER

AND HE IS TAKING AWAY IN

PAIN AND THAT NUMBNESS,

AND HE'S JUST RESTORING

THE JOINT TO WHAT IT

ORIGINALLY WAS.

HE IS HEALING YOU NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

I CLAIMED THAT WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

THAT WORD OF KNOWLEDGE WAS

FOR ME.

I WAS ABLE TO GET UP AND

HOP ON MY RIGHT LEG UP AND

DOWN, AS HARD AS I COULD,

AS HIGH AS I COULD,

WITHOUT ANY PAIN.

IT WAS A FANTASTIC MOMENT.

I WAS OVERWHELMED WITH

JOY.

AND JUST THE LOVE OF GOD.

I'M NOW ABLE TO PLAY,

LIKE, CHURCH FLAG FOOTBALL

NOW.

I'M ABLE TO RUN.

I'M ABLE TO WORK OUT.

I'M ABLE TO DO EVERYTHING

ITUSED TI USED TO BE ABLE TO DO.

I CAN GO ON HIKES AND RUN.

Reporter: TODAY

DOMINIC AND HIS WIFE,

RACHEL, LOVE SPENDING TIME

WITH THEIR LITTLE GIRL,

ISABELLA.

>

I'M ABLE TO RUN AROUND

WITH MY DAUGHTER AND HAVE

FUN.

AND I'M ABLE TO GO OUT TO

THE MOUNTAINS AND DO SOME

SHOOTING WITH FRIENDS AND

FAMILY.

Reporter: AND DOMINIC

LOVES TO SHARE WHAT GOD

DID FOR HIM AND WHAT HE

CAN DO FOR OTHERS.

HE CAN HEAL.

THOSE WHO DON'T BELIEVE

GOD CAN HEAL, TRUST HIM.

PUT YOUR TRUST IN HIM AND

CHALLENGE HIM.

SAY, GOD, I WANT A

HEALING, AND HE'LL COME

THROUGH.

Pat: MAN, IS GOD

ABLE.

HERE IS SOMETHING: JAY

SAID, I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

SCHIZOPHRENIA AT AGE 19.

I WAS HOSPITALIZED, AND

TOOK MANY MEDICATIONS.

ONE DAY I WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM.

AND TERRY HAD THIS WORD:

"THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU

HAVE SEVERE MENTAL

PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN

COMMITTED.

GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

I FELT WARMTH OVER MY

BODY, AND TO MY DOCTOR'S

AMAZEMENT, I WEANED MYSELF

OFF ALL PILLS AND I'M

COMPLETELY HEALED."

Terry: THIS IS

JENNIFER, WHO SAID, "I

FREQUENTLY CHOKE ON ALL

TYPES OF FOOD, I'VE ALWAYS

FELT A TIGHTNESS AND

RESTRICTION IN MY THROAT.

LAST TIME ON "THE 700

CLUB," PAT MENTIONED THERE

IS SOMEONE WHO FELT LIKE

THEY HAD A HAND ON THEIR

THROAT.

I SAID, THAT'S ME.

I COULD SWO SWALLOW WITH SUCH

EASE.

I LOOK FORWARD TO SERVING

THE LORD AND PLEASING HIM.

HIM."

AMEN.

Pat: WE'RE GOING TO

PRAY FOR YOU, FOLKS.

WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST.

AND WE PRAY TOGETHER FOR

THOSE IN THIS AUDIENCE WHO

HAVE BEEN SUFFERING.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS --

THERE IS A WOMAN HERE,

MARCY, AND YOU HAVE MAST

MASTITIS, AND IT IS AN

INFECTION IN YOUR BREAST.

YOU WANT TO REACH OUT AND

TOUCH IT.

GOD HAS HEALED YOU RIGHT

NOW.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE A

PROBLEM WITH YOUR THROAT,

ALMOST LIKE JENNIFER JUST

TALKED ABOUT, IT DOESN'T

OPEN WIDE ENOUGH.

THERE IS A LOT OF PAIN,

AND GOD IS RELEASING THAT

FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

AND THERE IS SOMEONE WITH

DEEP PAIN IN YOUR EAR.

BE SET FREE IN JESUS'

NAME.

Pat: MAY THE

ANOINTING OF THE LORD COME

UPON YOU AND HIS GRACE BE

UPON YOU IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH

US.

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE IS

FROM THE BOOK OF

REVELATION: "LOOK, I AM

COMING SOON.

MY REWARD IS WITH ME.

AND I WILL GIVE TO EACH

PERSON ACCORDING TO WHAT

THEY HAVE DONE."

INTERESTING.

> WELL, TOMORROW, A

FORMER LESBIAN FEMINIST

TELLS US HOW HER LIFE WAS

TOTALLY CHANGED BY A

DINNER INVITATION.

Terry: I READ THE

BOOK.

IT'S A CHALLENGE TO ALL

BELIEVERS.

Pat: THANK YOU ALL

FOR BEING WITH US.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME

WE'VE GOT.

REMEMBER, OUR TELEPHONES

ARE AVAILABLE:

1-800-700-7000.

EASY TO REMEMBER.

AND FOR TERRY AND ALL OF

US, I'LL LOOK FORWARD TO

BEING WITH YOU.

I BELIEVE WENDY WILL BE

WITH ME TOMORROW, AND THEN

TERRY WILL BE BACK ON

THURSDAY.

WE'LL SEE YOU THEN.

UNTIL THEN, GOD BLESS YOU.

BYE-BYE.
