(dramatic orchestral music)
- Welcome, folks.
As we told you yesterday,Michael was a Category 3,
but it's moved into a Category 4.
They say it's gonna bethe worst storm ever
to hit the Gulf Coast of Florida.
Never in history has anythingthis powerful come across.
145 miles per hour.
And not only is it a Category 4,
but on the edges, it'll be spawning
not only tornadoes, but hurricanes.
In Richmond, that last storm,they had 13 hurricanes,
and who knows how many asthis thing goes inland.
But it's moving veryrapidly, and it'll be soon.
It'll sweep up through Georgia, Alabama,
and then the end of the Carolinas.
And it's going right on up.
As a matter of fact,in another day or two,
it'll be up here inVirginia, where we live.
It's just unbelievable.
But as I say, it's the strongestin 150, maybe ever years.
I say 150 years, but maybe ever.
But the death toll in the storm
surge is going to be monumental.
If anybody has tried to weather it out,
they're making a big mistake.
It's going to be devastating.
Wendy?- Yeah, I just hope people
have had time to get out.
But Michael is expected to make
landfall near Panama City Beach today.
The Panhandle facesdevastating wind damage,
catastrophic storm surgesof up to 13 feet or more.
As Charlene Aaron tells us, Florida is
under a high state of emergency.
- Overnight, Michaelstrengthened to a monster
Category 4 storm, taking direct
aim at the Florida Panhandle.
- Do not underestimatethe power of this storm.
This will be devastating.
- [Charlene] There are concerns Michael
could strengthen beforemaking landfall later today.
- We're talking aboutlandfall this afternoon
near Panama City Beach, gustsup to 160 miles per hour.
Movement here still keeps this
a hurricane into early tonight.
That's gonna be well north of the tens.
And we're talking aboutwidespread trees down,
power lines down, butagain, making landfall
mid-afternoon as a Category 4 hurricane.
- [Charlene] Forecasterswarn the storm could become
one of the Panhandle'sworst hurricanes in memory.
- This is the worst storm to ever strike
the Florida Panhandle, hands down.
It's gonna beat Opal, gonnablow away Dennis from 2005.
And it's one of only ahandful of storms in the past
30 years that's hittingas intense as it has been.
- [Charlene] Some 375,000people up and down
the Gulf Coast have beenurged or ordered to evacuate
ahead of life-threatening storm surge,
hurricane force winds, and heavy rainfall.
- Remember, we can rebuild your house.
We cannot rebuild your life.
Think about your kids, your grandkids,
all your family members.
Take care of them.
Take this seriously andkeep your family safe.
- [Charlene] Some are heeding
the warning, taking to shelters.
- Understanding that thisstorm may be a little bit more
intense than the others,so I think it's a good idea
if people are concernedthat they have an option.
Come here or some of the other shelters.
- [Charlene] Others planto ride out the storm.
- We're hunkered down, and we need to be.
We understand the severity,and we'll be good to go.
- [Charlene] While Michael is likely
to weaken as it moves across the
Southeastern UnitedStates, its heavy rains
and flooding effectswill spread far and wide.
Tropical storm watches arein effect in coastal areas
of Mississippi, Florida,Georgia, and South Carolina.
- A problem in the Carolinas,this is the kinda storm
that's gonna knock downsome trees and power lines
in areas that they've just put it back up.
But there's gonna be a swatof three to six locally,
12-inch rains in theareas that Florence hit.
And those rivers aren't back
in their banks yet in a lotta cases,
so that's gonnareaggravate flood problems.
- President Trump has declared
a state of emergency in Florida,
authorizing FEMA tocoordinate relief efforts
and provide federal money and help.
Charlene Aaron, CBN News.
- You know, Wendy, I went down shortly
after Hugo hit SouthCarolina, and it was like
somebody had taken an ax, and the trees,
just thousands of them were cut off
right at about three feet above their base
and just chopped down, thousands of trees.
Same thing's gonna happendown there in Florida.
All that pine, foliage that's there,
those trees, they'll be wiped out.
It'll be devastating.
They have no conceptionof how bad it's gonna be.
- I was living in SouthCarolina right before Hugo.
Went back because my parentshad a place down there.
And the bridges, you couldn't even get
to the bridges to check thedamage of what was going on.
But anything that wasn't sturdy was gone.
I mean, it was just no more.
- I remember, we set up our cameras
in the main street of Charleston
'cause there wasn't anybody there,
and there was a roof of oneof the commercial buildings.
It was a tin roof.
And it was like a piece of paper.
You get a piece of paper,you do it like this.
That's what that, itwas balled up like that,
and it'd thrown down inthe middle of the street.
That was so devastating.
But I think the people of the Panhandle
have no conception of whatthis thing's gonna do to them.
And boy, if there's anypossibility of getting,
it may be too late nowto get out of that--
- It's supposed to hittoday, this afternoon.
I mean, the reporters that were on the TV
this morning said it's eight hours away.
So by the time this airs,it'll be seven hours.
- The roads are all jammed up.
Well, this is one of those that
they should be doing something about.
Now, Operation Blessing is mobilizing
to help storm victims in Florida.
Our representatives will beon the ground assessing needs
and working with churchesand government agencies
to provide assistanceonce the storm clears.
We'll have water, we'll have cots,
we'll have tents, we'llhave tarps, we'll have food,
we'll have all that kindastuff and medical assistance.
So, I think it's so important.
So, we'll swing away from that.
We mentioned South Carolina.
There's a young lady whowas governor down there.
As I understand, she's from, well,
a background of Hindu of faith.
And she is a dedicatedChristian, a wonderful person,
and has been a superbgovernor and one of the best
UN ambassadors we haveever had, Nikki Haley.
She's now said, look, I've had eight years
in government service, andI'm going to step down.
I'm giving my notice well in advance.
And at the end of thisyear, she'll be replaced.
So, who's gonna replace her?
Well, there's several.
One is a executive at GoldmanSachs, and the ambassador
of Germany is another thatare under consideration.
John Jessup has more on that story.
- That's right, Pat.
As you were saying,President Trump has a list
of names to replace outgoingAmbassador Nikki Haley
at the United Nations, but he's taking
some time to make his decision.
Haley's announcement that she'sleaving the administration
surprised many, but not the president.
CBN's White House correspondentBen Kennedy has more.
- Haley initially told President Trump
of her plans to resignabout six months ago.
She now made it official and plans
to stay at her post untilthe end of the year.
- I think you have to beselfless enough to know
when you step aside and allowsomeone else to do the job.
So, thank you, Mr. President.
- Thank you, Nikki.- It's been an honor--
- So proud of you.- Of a lifetime.
- [Ben] UN Ambassador NikkiHaley becomes the latest
in a line of high-profiledepartures from the White House.
- It was a blessing to go into the UN
with body armor everyday and defend America.
- [Ben] She representedthe US with a strong voice
at the UN, speaking out onNorth Korea, Russia, and Iran.
Haley went on the attack against
Syria's President Bashar al-Assad
for the use of chemicalweapons on civilians.
- The monster who was responsible
for these attacks has no conscience,
not even to be shocked bypictures of dead children.
- [Ben] She stood up forthose without a voice
when the US withdrew fromthe UN Human Rights Council.
- When a so-called Human Rights Council
cannot bring itself to address
the massive abuses in Venezuelaand Iran and it welcomes
the Democratic Republicof Congo as a new member,
the Council ceases tobe worthy of its name.
- [Ben] While at the sametime fighting for Israel.
- I think you look at the anti-Israel bias
and the strength and courage that
the president showedin moving the embassy--
- [Ben] She cited her Christian faith
as a reason to supportIsrael, later teaming up
with the president'sson-in-law, Jared Kushner,
to work toward a peacedeal with the Palestinians.
- What I've done workingwith him on the Middle East
peace plan, it is sounbelievably well-done.
- [Ben] Haley sat downwith CBN's chief analyst,
David Brody, to talk abouther impact on the UN.
- Since day one, you've gonein there to shake things up.
How tough has that been?
- Every day, I've put on body armor
'cause I know there's gonna be a fight.
I'm just fighting adifferent thing every day.
- [Ben] Senators confirmed the former
South Carolina governoras US ambassador to the UN
on day four of Trump's presidencyby a vote of 96 to four.
She will end up servingnearly two years at her post,
citing it was time to step aside.
- You've been fantastic.
You're my friend.
On behalf of the country,I wanna thank you
for a great job, thank you--
- Now, President Trump said he will name
a successor in the nexttwo or three weeks.
As for what's next, Haleysaid she will not run in 2020
and will support PresidentTrump's reelection.
Ben Kennedy, CBN News, the White House.
- Thanks, Ben.
And President Trump says he's narrowed
his list of possiblereplacements down to five people,
and one name reportedly on the list
is former Deputy NationalSecurity Advisor Dina Powell.
Israelis were as surprised as Americans
at the resignation of Ambassador Haley.
Following the announcementthat she'd wrap up
her two-year tenure at the United Nations,
Israeli Prime MinisterBenjamin Netanyahu tweeted:
I would like to thankAmbassador Nikki Haley,
who led the uncompromising struggle
against hypocrisy at the UN, and on behalf
of the truth and justice of our country.
On the sidelines ofSeptember's General Assembly,
Prime Minister Netanyahu told Haley
she helped roll backanti-Semitism at the UN.
- The hall still permeateswith the stench of anti-Israel
and anti-Semitic resolutions,which are the same.
And I wanna thank youfor clearing the air.
- And Pat, he added that Haley
was one of the best friends Israel has had
at the United Nations in a long time.
- Well, frankly, ladies and gentlemen,
I believe the United Nations has served
its purpose and should be replaced.
I counsel and I still counselsome kind of a conference
of democratic nations,and that's what we need.
Because the GeneralAssembly is just a joke.
Time after time, they pass anti-American
and anti-Israeli resolutions,over and over again.
They never say anything about Assad.
They never say anything aboutany of the Arab dictators.
They never say anythingabout Soviet Russia.
They always talk about America and Israel.
It is just an exercise in futility.
Those people are overpaid.
They get a lot more moneythan our foreign diplomats.
They live in great luxury.
And they couldn't care lessabout what they're doing.
They just vote willy-nillyon these things.
And we've got the Security Council,
and the Security Councilunder Obama failed to object
to a resolution againstIsrael, which was just,
well, it was threateningto the whole nation.
It made them an outlaw state.
And the United States has the power
of veto in the Security Council.
The thing is set up, the General Assembly
is a big debating bully,but they have no real power.
The power is in the Security Council.
And it's a few of theleaders of the nations
who were fighting againstNazi Germany in World War II.
And so we have a veto in that.
But it's a waste of money.
We're taking up, maybe 40%of their budget, 30% or so
is paid for by the American taxpayer.
I think it's time to stop.
And we oughta reconstitute a community
of democratic nations,would be the answer.
And I think that's what's gotta be done.
But I don't know if there's any
political will to do that or not.
They would scream at you.
But when you see thepeople who are on there,
for example, as Nikki Haley talked
about their so-calledHuman Rights Council,
and then you've gotthese vicious dictators.
I mean, it's just a farce,what they're doing there.
It's a waste of money, and it's time
we get another organizationthat will be more effective.
That's World War II, andit's been 40, 50, 60 years,
however many years it'sbeen since its creation.
Now it's time for a new world order.
- I'm really gonna miss her.
Do you think she'll reemergein some other office
at some point?- Of course she will.
I mean, she's too popular.
I don't know if Senate, Imean, after having been--
- Governor.- Main focus
of the United States at theGeneral Assembly, she was free.
I don't know, there mightbe some appointive position.
But she'd make a greatSecretary of State, for example.
I mean, if Pompeo is--
- That's what I'm wondering.
I'm wondering if that's inthe cards at some time--
- Well, it's something.- In the future.
- Her and Trump, I thinkeverybody loves her.
And so what do we do?
I mean, she's got a family.
Maybe she just wants totake it easy for a while.
- Hey, that sounds good, too.
- She's gotta strap on body armor
every day to fight the fight,so you get tired of fighting.
Well, God bless her.
And pray for this wonderful lady.
All right?- Amen.
Well, still ahead, there are men
who risked their livesand defied their homelands
to save the lives of countless Jews.
Hear the stories of theheroes who've been called
Righteous Among theNations when we come back.
(triumphant orchestral music)
(dramatic orchestral music)
- Well, many of you, likeI have, have traveled
to Jerusalem, and you've goneto a place called Yad Vashem,
which is the memorial to thevictims of the Holocaust.
And outside that issomething that's called
the Garden of the Righteous Gentiles.
And people who foughtfor the Jewish cause,
like Corrie ten Boom,are remembered there.
Maybe some are buried there.
But there's another group.
They're called theRighteous Among the Nations,
foreign diplomats who helped rescue
hundreds of Jews from Nazi Holocaust.
CBN has partnered withthe Israeli government
to bring a special exhibitionto Regent University.
It honors those who riskedtheir lives to save others.
Gary Lane gives us a look at it.
- Beyond Duty is a Holocaustremembrance display
not only honoring Holocaustsurvivors, but also courageous
foreign diplomats who helped rescue them.
Earlier this year, the United Nations
allowed the Israeli Foreign Ministry
permission to display the exhibit there.
And now the exhibit is on theroad, with the latest stop
being the CBN Regent Universitycampus in Virginia Beach.
Among some of the righteous
diplomats featured in this exhibit?
He was from Sweden.
Many of us know about him,but how many of us have ever
heard about Sebastian de Romero Radigales?
He was from Spain.
Stories of bold diplomats from nations
like Peru and Japan are also featured.
Professor Gerson Moreno-Rianois with Regent University.
- Regent has a long history of standing
with the people of Israeland the State of Israel.
And the chancellor, ourfounder, Dr. Pat Robertson,
loves the people of Israel,loves the State of Israel.
So for us, this is justone more in a long series
of things that we have done in partnering
with the local Jewish communityand the State of Israel.
It highlights the importance of embodying
moral courage in the face of evil.
In today's world especially,I think young people,
students, others need tosee and understand history.
- [Gary] Israel, CBN,and Regent University,
a unique partnershipbroadening Holocaust awareness
by honoring 36 courageousdiplomats and thousands of others
called the Righteous Among the Nations.
- Joining us now with more on the
Beyond Duty exhibit is Benjamin Krasna.
He's deputy head of mission for the
Embassy of Israel to the United States.
And it's nice to see you with us.
Thank you very much.
- Thank you, welcome, Pat.
- Thank you.- Thank you so much.
- Tell me about this exhibit.
Who are these people,these wonderful people?
- Well, these are diplomats from around
the world who refused to sit silent.
Their governments probablywould've preferred inaction,
to stay out of it, to not get involved.
But they saw what washappening to Jews in Europe.
They saw the plan of the Nazis.
And they felt that theycouldn't stay silent.
And so they went beyond the call of duty
and helped enable many ofthem to escape the Holocaust.
And for that, we're very, very grateful.
- Well, did many of them risk their lives?
Did the Nazis try to killthem, or were they spared?
- Well, many of them,obviously, had risked
their lives or risked their careers.
The most famous example, ofcourse, is Raoul Wallenberg.
To this day we actually don'tknow what his fate has been.
But again, it was a time of great risk
of what the Nazis may do and what their
own governments, how they may react.
- Is there any possibilitythat that would be repeated?
We've all said, never again.
It can't ever happen again.
But is there a possibility?
- Well, Pat, I think it's why there's
such an important lesson here.
The generation of thosewho actually remember
the Holocaust, the survivors,the people, those diplomats,
they're no longer with us, or many of them
will not be with us for much longer.
And so it's important that we have
a way to eternalize thislesson so that we can teach
the younger people, theycan see this generation.
So then when we face somethinglike the tyrants in Iran
declare they desire toannihilate the Jewish people,
to deny the Holocaust, towipe out the State of Israel,
people understand why we haveto take such things seriously.
- Do you think the young people today,
'cause I was there whenthis stuff was going on.
I was younger, but I remember.
Do you think the youth of today
have an appreciation of what the Jews
went through under, they don't even know.
They think Hitler was kindof a nice guy, don't they?
- Yeah, look--- It's a shame.
- I mean, it has to be morethan just a history lesson.
It has to be a lesson about morality.
It has to be a lesson about taking action
and not standing byquietly and calling out
when they see wrong and doingwhat they can to save people.
- You've got the titleRighteous Among the Nations.
Do you wanna explain that a little bit?
- Well, again, I think that many of us
would've expected the Jews to help Jews.
Obviously, there was manymovements to do that.
But again, even there were many Jews,
unfortunately, who were silent.
But this was something else.
This was people who just saw the wrong
and saw the evil and then tookthese righteous, brave acts
and therefore to meet andto help and facilitate.
People from Turkey, asyou say, from Japan,
from Cuba, from all over the world
who actually took this action.
- Is there one thatstands out in your mind
that is kinda like a hero for you?
- Well, look, for me,there's a certain fact,
I started my service,my first place abroad
was serving in Istanbul, Turkey.
- Aha.- And so Selahattin Ulkumen
is mentioned, a Turkishdiplomat who saved many Jews
and enabled them to expat from Rhodes.
And so to me, I had the opportunity
to meet him when I first served there.
- Oh, yeah.- And so to me,
it was really a greatmoment to meet someone
who was so brave and so modest.
And I think that combinationis what made it special.
- Oh, you mentioned Turkey.
The current president, whatis his attitude, do you think?
I mean, is he setting upan Islamic dictatorship?
Is he for Israel or againstIsrael, or what do you think?
- Look, I have a tremendous amount
of affinity for the Turkish people.
I served there.
I speak the language somewhat.
And I saw the great, great potential
of the relationship between the country.
I saw the openingsegment, where you talked
about the amazing humanitarian aid
that you're doing today in the South
and I know that you'redoing also now in Indonesia,
where there're also Israelisnow assisting in Indonesia.
I had the opportunity inthe earthquakes in 1999.
I had the opportunity to work with our
search-and-rescue teams, and it really was
a tremendous, tremendousopportunity to see the outpouring.
And the Israelis werethe first on the ground
with the largest numbers, saved people.
I witnessed it myself, and really,
it was a tremendous,tremendous opportunity.
- So, the Turks are, actually,that was the fountainhead
of Christianity, wasTurkey in the early days.
But anyhow, well, I commendyou on this exhibit.
Now, this exhibit is comingto Regent University.
We're honored to have it herefor a couple weeks, maybe?
- Right, we had the opportunity
last night with Gordon to open it.
It was a wonderful turnout.
Working together withthe university, with CBN,
with the local Jewish community.
And so we're really, very, very proud.
And I think it's so appropriate that
it be at a university,that it be in a place
to educate so that theyoung people can see it,
because they really needto be our target audiences.
- Well, thank you for beingwith us, Benjamin Krasna.
Thank you so much.
And their exhibit, by the way,
is gonna be at Regent University.
It runs today through October the 23rd.
And you can get more informationor schedule a group visit.
Go to regent.edu,
or call 888-372-1006.
Thank you so much.
God bless you.- Thank you very much, Pat.
Thank you.- All right.
- Thanks, Pat.
Well, coming up, 15 years of chronic
pain vanishes in an instant.
- And I couldn't believe it.
And I was so happy because He healed me.
- [Wendy] Hear her story of miraculous
healing when we come back.
- Can you imagine youwake up in the morning
and you start stretchingand you start counting
how much pain places you've got?
Ah, ah, ah!
Your knees, your hips, your shoulders,
your arms, your elbows.
Well, that's nine out of 10.
That's how Chanda Monroe describes
the pain she felt every day.
Her problems stretchedfrom her legs to her head,
locked up her body, and kept her
in a constant state of discomfort.
And then one day, Chanda was deciding
whether to call in sick orto go to a chiropractor.
She did neither.
And look what happened to Chandra.
- [Narrator] Chanda Monroefrom Aurora, Colorado,
cleans homes for a living.
Although she lived withchronic hip and back pain,
she continued to work whenever she could.
- I've had a lotta pain off and on
probably for the last 15 years.
You can imagine that thatcould really hurt your back
when you're bending and swoopingand twisting and all that.
- [Narrator] In July of 2018,
Chanda's suffering reached a new level.
- When the pain was at its worst,
I would just have to sit or go to bed
and maybe sometimes put ice on the area
and, I don't know, just pray about it.
It kept me from doing a lotta things.
I felt so much pain that Ididn't even wanna go to work.
- [Narrator] On July19th of that same year,
Chanda was debating about going to work
or going to her chiropractor.
Then there was the third option.
- I had a feeling that God toldme to turn on The 700 Club.
And it was about 8:30 a.m.
I turned it on, and BrendaSipes had her story.
And she had a story about her neck
being injured in a car accident, I think.
And it was really bad.
I saw her put her hand uponher neck, and they prayed
for her, and she said,"I have no more pain."
And as soon as she said that,
I was watching and I said, "I want that,"
because I was in so much pain.
And so I just continued to pray.
And then Wendy and Pat,they decided to pray,
and they were wrapping up the show.
And so I said, "Okay, I'll pray with 'em."
So I put my hand uponmy back, and Wendy said.
- You just saw this pieceabout Brenda's neck,
and you've had, it's not somuch your neck, but your back.
And you are asking for thesame miraculous surgery
to take place, and Godis saying yes today.
Your spine is being completely healed.
- And I said, "Okay,God, I'm gonna stand up,
"and I'm gonna walk around,'cause I don't feel any pain."
And so I got up and walked around,
and I started praising Jesus.
I just said, "Oh my gosh,I have no more pain.
"Thank you, Lord."
And I put my hands up in theair, and I was thanking Him.
And I couldn't believe it.
And I was so happy because He healed me.
And I had no more pain.
It was gone completely.
I was able to go to workthat day and feel no pain,
and for the rest of theweek and for the rest
of the next week and the week after.
- [Narrator] When she's not working,
Chanda loves to spend timewith her husband, Zach,
and her children and two grandchildren.
- Since my healing, I'mable to pick up the kids
and play with them and go tothe park and walk the dogs.
I love to share this story because
I've never experienced this before.
And it was the most wonderfulthing I've ever felt.
I felt the Holy Spirit gofrom the bottom of my feet
all the way up through mybody, and I knew it was God.
- "I knew it was God."
Wendy, you didn't know her, did you?
- No, not at all.
But she seems like a very nice lady.
I'd like to meet her.
- Isn't that sweet?
- Oh, that makes me just so happy.
It makes me wanna cry, yeah.- Yeah, of course it does.
Well, here are a few more.
Somebody's got Meniere's disease.
And somebody's had 35 mini strokes.
35 mini strokes, needs healing.
And somebody, of course, says,
we need to pray for arevival throughout America.
What do you have?
- This person, I need a breakthrough.
After 40 years in the computer field,
I cannot find a job due to my age.
Don't say that.
God can do anything.
This person needs to bedelivered from anxiety
and stress and need to be healed
of ulcerative colitisand fatty liver disease.
- Okay.- Lot of needs out there.
- Folks, we wanna pray for you.
You saw a lady crippledthroughout her body,
and yet in a matter ofinstants, God touched her.
You see, we've got a God,with all things are possible.
Just keep that in mind.
With God' everything is possible.
Don't say, as you said, well,I'm too old to get a job.
No, no, God's got plenty of jobs.
God's got plenty of opportunities.
God's got plenty of education,
plenty of money, plenty of healing power.
He is able to do all things.
Nothing is impossible.
So, we're going to pray for you right now.
Whatever the need is, youhold it before the Lord,
and we're gonna pray together.
And I'll join hands with Wendy,
and the two of us will pray together.
Father, in Jesus' name, I join with Wendy,
and we pray together right now.
- Yes, Lord.
- And we ask that you would touch people.
There's somebody, it's like a miasma.
You've got a cloud all overyou in front of your face.
There's something wrong,
like you're walking through the fog.
And that fog is gonna liftright now in the name of Jesus.
Marcia, you're healed in Jesus' name.
So many people suffering with arthritis.
Some of it is just sopainful and debilitating.
And God sees your pain, andHe is touching you today.
If you have arthritis, just start
lifting your hands, praising God.
You are being healed.- Amen.
- You are being healed.- You've got an ulcer.
You've got an ulcer right inthe middle of your stomach.
It burns and it's so painful.
And right now, it's gonnabe like a finger of fire
just went into the innerpart of your being right now.
And you are completelyhealed in Jesus' name.
- Yeah, there's a gentlemanwith a bone spur in your foot,
I believe--- Thank you, Lord.
- And God is touching you right now.
You're being healed.- Thank you, Jesus.
- In Jesus' name.
- Oh, there's a spirit of fear.
Melanie, you are free from that.
Perfect love casts out fear.
Begin to praise God.
You are delivered from fear.
That spirit of fear is leavingyou as we speak right now.

- Well, one moment, Darren Turner's mind
wandered to the dozensof men wounded and killed
while he was deployed in Iraq.
The next moment, Darren had his kids
begging him to go to the park and play.
As an Army chaplain, Darren was a strong
anchor of faith for his fellow soldiers,
but he struggled to do the same at home.
- [Narrator] Darren Turnerand his wife, Heather,
had no idea how the war in Iraq
would shake their rock-solidmarriage to its core.
In 2007, Darren, a Regent University grad,
spent 15 months as an Army chaplain,
encouraging servicemenand women in their faith.
But when he came home,things quickly fell apart.
- I began to snap at little things.
And it didn't matter ifshe was right or wrong.
That wasn't the point.
It was an opportunity for me to let
some of my anger and frustration out.
- I knew something deeper, supernatural,
that we could notmanufacture had to happen,
or else this was gonna go nowhere.
It was gonna get worse.
- [Narrator] Darren and Heather's story
hits the big screen inthe movie Indivisible,
playing in theaters starting October 26th.
- And the movie's amazing.
Well, Darren and Heather Turner,
the real Darren and HeatherTurner, are with us now.
And welcome to The 700 Club, guys.
- Thank you for having us.- Thanks for having us.
- Wow, it's so weird, because I just
saw the movie last night.
I got finished watching it at midnight,
and then they had thepictures of the real family
come on afterward, andso now here you are.
- Here we are.
- Darren, you had severaltours of duty over in Iraq.
The one depicted in themovie was your first tour--
- Correct.- Which was incredible.
Can you even tell us, whatwas that like for you?
- Yeah, so I actuallywent to seminary here.
I was a Regent student, graduated 2006,
and then went on active duty the
beginning of 2007, deployed for 15 months
three months after myfirst day on active duty.
- Wow.- So it was fast.
It was part of President Bush'ssurge, if you recall that--
- Oh, yeah.- Back in 2007 and eight.
And so we went to Iraq for 15 months.
- And I remember in the movie,
it's like, we're called to this.
You were gonna just take it on.
And you get over there, and it was totally
not what you expected, orworse than you expected.
- Yeah, I'm not sure I expected,
I had no idea what to expect, honestly.
I knew we were gonna go intoa pretty hot combat zone.
And it was--
- And it was.- It was pretty wild, yeah.
- And you ended up ministeringto some soldiers who ended up
losing their lives, andthat really affected you.
- It did.
- And Heather, you'rehome raising three kids.
And you guys are communicating a lot,
and at first, everything seems fine,
but then you start to notice he's not
sounding like himself anymore.
What was going on with you?
- I think for me, I just wanted to be able
to connect to him in a way that I felt
like he was heard and I was heard.
But there's just practical issues
back then during the deployments.
You did just get yourtwo-minutes phone call,
and there was this long delay.
And so we would get off the phone
feeling like we hadn't reallysaid anything to each other.
- [Wendy] Two minutes?
Oh, I didn't realize itwas only, that's tough.
That's really tough.
- Before Skype, before smartphones,
they had call centers at someof these deployed locations.
- Oh, man.- And you had
a limited amount of time.
Well, at least you called.
(Heather laughs)Guys just text today.
- Right, yeah.
- So, when he got home after,it was 15 months, right?
- [Darren] 15 months.
- He wasn't the same man.
Heather, how did that make you feel?
What was going on?
- Yeah, neither of uswere the same people.
You change anyway overthat period of time.
But having been in stressful situations
just compounded that problem.
And so he came back, and the same thing,
I didn't really have an expectation.
I didn't know what to expect.
But I did expect that atleast we would come back
and be glad to see each otherand sorta reconnect in a way.
- [Wendy] But he was angry.
- Yes, he was just angry and disconnected.
- And Darren, why do you think
you were taking yourfrustrations out on Heather?
- That's the million-dollar question.
As you mentioned, itwas a tough deployment.
I lost a lotta guys.
She was there with the family.
So I didn't fully appreciate what she
had gone through on that deployment.
I only saw what I saw, and vice versa.
You didn't fully appreciatewhat happened with us.
And so we came backfeeling almost competitive,
like we both had a betterstory than the other one.
And that kinda fueledthat anger a little bit.
- Sure, and the kids, they'recaught in the crossfires.
- Yeah.- How are they coping
during this time?
What do you, yeah--
- Yeah, Ellie, I remember,and we have pictures
where she actually pulledall of her eyelashes out.
- [Wendy] Oh!
- And not consciously.
She would not know that she had done it.
But we have pictures where, I mean,
she literally is missingall of her eyelashes.
And she would say if you asked her
that she was fine, butclearly there's a stress.
- [Wendy] And she was thedaughter who has the asthma.
- Right.- Yes.
- And that was depicted so beautifully
in the movie and brings you to tears.
And that little actress was amazing.
I loved her.
You two actually separated
for a little while after you got back.
You'd already beenseparated for 15 months.
(Darren laughs)And then you get separated.
Did that help or hurt?
- Well, for us,
that was God working in us.
We had looked at each other for answers,
and neither of us had answers.
We were both empty.
- Wow.- And so it took a season
of being in the desert,almost like Gomer and Hosea,
where I had to go faraway to really figure out
what was going on inme and so that I could
come back to Heatherand offer her something
instead of trying to take something.
- And Darren, what was the turning point?
- So, one afternoon, I tookthe kids to meet Heather.
And that was the first timein a public setting where,
we were separated, and so that was
the first time I had to release the kids.
I stayed back, and they ran to Mom,
and then I turned aroundand got in the car and left.
And so just the weight, thegravity of that situation
finally slapped me in the faceand woke me up, so to speak.
And from there, I was readyto fight for my family.
And that's when I got, I had to get
out of the Army to do that.
- [Wendy] Wow.
- The Army wanted me to stay in,
but I knew that I needed timeand space outside of that
if I was gonna have a fighting chance
to win my wife's heart back and the kids.
- And Heather, how did youlearn to trust Darren again?
Because he had completely changed.
And I guess what you didn't realize
was that he was feeling guilty
for not being able to save the men,
at least that's what'sdepicted in the movie.
- [Darren] Right.
- [Wendy] But how did youlearn to trust him again?
- I think for me, itwas less about learning
how to trust Darren andmore about learning how
to trust the Lord in difficult situations.
And so for me, it was more of
the Lord really just kind of revealing
His will to me for marriage,and that if He's for marriage,
how can we undo whatGod has put into plan?
And so for me, it wasjust an obedient choice
to follow what the Lord's will was
and trust that God was going to keep me
in His will and bless my children
out of an obedientdecision to stay married.
And eventually, myemotions caught up to that.
But it did take some time.
- So many military familiesgo through divorce.
Now you counsel military families.
What's the number-onething that you tell them
when they're in the situationthat you guys were in?
- Yeah, and my counsel to them is,
and I don't understandevery couple's situation.
They're so drastically different.
- Sure.- But the common
denominator is, one or both want out.
And so just one more day, one more day.
Let's keep talking about this.
Let's create some spacefor God to break your heart
for your family, instead of you chasing
after other things and deciding that
this is the best thing todo, is leave your family.
- [Wendy] It's not.
- It's not.- It's not.
Well, your story is nowheaded to the big screen.
It's called Indivisible.
It is a powerful movie.
I loved it.
I did cry a few times.
(Darren and Heather chuckle)
And I love the, well, Ilove so much about it.
We don't have time to talk too much
about the movie, but it comes out when?
- October 26th.
- October 26th.- Just in a couple a weeks.
- Okay, Indivisible, intheaters across the country?
- Absolutely, yeah, goto indivisiblemovie.com,
and you can type in your ZIP code,
and it'll pop up theclosest theaters to you.
- I really think it's a right-now movie.
And it's a great movie formilitary and anybody, any--
- Anybody.- Anyone to see.
- Thanks for sharing your story--
- Thank you, Wendy.- With us and with the world.
For more information,you can go to cbn.com.
Again, Darren, Heather, thanks.
God bless you guys.- Thank you.
Thanks for having us.- Appreciate it.
- Well, still ahead, time for us
to tackle questions from you.
One viewer writes, so oftenI hear churches preach
the promises and blessing of God,
but they never teach the true way
to Christ through the cross and salvation.
Why are things being sugarcoated?
We'll have that questionand much more coming up.
Don't go away.
$5 a day, that won'tbuy much food, will it?
But that's all one grandfather had
to feed his family of 13 children.
Meals were skipped, and someof his children got sick.
But when Orphan's Promisefound out about their plight,
we made sure they'd never go hungry again.
- [Terry] When Grandpa gets home,
it's the best time of the dayfor Guile and his sister, Mia.
- [Translator] Grandma,Grandpa, I'm hungry.
- [Terry] The childrenmissed lunch that day,
and there was only a little bit of bread
for them to share with their 11 cousins,
who are all being raisedby their grandparents.
The children's mothers work far from home
as domestic help and send onlya few dollars when they can.
Meanwhile, Grandpa makes only $5 a day
driving a motorcycle taxi,which is never enough
for food for the hungry grandkids.
(speaking in a foreign language)
- [Translator] To behonest, there are days
when we have to skip lunchbecause we don't have food.
We'd want until evening, hoping my
husband has enough to buy dinner.
(speaking in a foreign language)
- [Translator] My tummy hurts here.
- [Terry] And Guile came down
with pneumonia because of malnutrition.
- [Translator] I felt weak.
I could not play.
- [Terry] When CBN learnedabout Mia and Guile,
we brought our mobile medical clinic,
which provided them withmedicine and vitamins.
Next, CBN's Orphan's Promise started
a feeding program in their community.
Now Mia, Guile, and their younger cousins
enjoy a nutritious lunch every day.
- [Translator] I like going to the center.
The food is yummy.
- [Translator] We eatmeat, vegetables, and rice.
- [Terry] And having a placewhere the younger children
can eat at least one meal a day
has taken pressure off Grandma.
- [Translator] I'm sohappy my grandchildren
can eat a complete meal every day.
They look healthy andfeel a lot better now.
- [Terry] Finally, Orphan'sPromise gave Grandma
a sewing machine and everything needed
to start a business makingclothes and curtains.
It has turned into a goodsource of income for the family.
- [Translator] The sewing machine helps me
meet my grandchildren's needs.
Thank you for theblessings you've given us.
- The Bible says true religion
is helping the widows and the orphans,
and Orphan's Promise isdoing that beautifully.

Let's go.- To bring it on.
Well, we don't call itbring it on anymore.
We call it Honest Questions,Honest Answers, I mean.
Okay, so this viewer says,so often I hear churches
preach the promises and blessings of God,
but they never teachthe true way to Christ
through the cross and salvation.
Why are things being sugarcoated?
- Well, (laughs) why do you wanna give
happy thoughts to get a bigger audience?
That's why they do it.
They want the church full of people.
And the people seem to liketo have their ears tickled.
That's what the Bible says.
The truth is, there'sonly one way to salvation,
and that is through the cross.
Jesus said, except a man pick up his cross
and follow me, he can't enter the Kingdom.
So, if you're gonna tell
it the truth, we tell it the truth.
But the truth is that having come
to the Lord, there is a glorious future.
It isn't all bad.
But you have to die.
Then you come alive.
I'm alive, now I'm dead,and now I'm alive again.
I mean, that's the wholeidea of being born again.
- All right, Charles says,
I have a friend who's a Christian.
However, in responseto the fact that Trump
wants to stop abortion, shesaid she disagrees and that
it's a woman's right to choosewhat to do with her body.
I need advice on the bestway to respond to her.
Look, what is beingkilled is not her body.
It is a living human being that
is the union of a man and a woman.
It's not her body.
And the idea of sayingthat she has a right
to do what she wants to withher body is just not true.
They used to say abortion was murder.
And then that sounded too harsh,
so they don't say that anymore.
But the truth is, you arekilling a human being.
It is a human being.
It is a person, and thatperson is being killed.
And it's not her body.
It's just one of thosethings that's in our society.
We sugarcoated abortion sothat everybody wants to do it.
It's okay, it's legal,the Supreme Court said so,
there's Roe versus Wade, and so forth.
But it used to be called murder.
It still is, all right?
- All right, Raphael says,why is the only spiritual gift
shown and practiced on your show
the gift of the word of knowledge?
And how is it that each of the hosts
are able to walk in this gift?
- Well, it's one of thosethings that's there.
Really, the best one Ithink is the word of wisdom,
which has to do with analysisand foretelling the future.
It's one of those giftsof the Holy Spirit.
Read Romans chapter 12.
Paul sets it out what they are.
And he also says, earnestlydesire the better gifts,
especially that you might prophesy.
So I think all of us need to yearn
to be filled with God'spower and to exercise
all of the enablements, the charismata.
They're not, quote, gifts.
And we all oughta need them, so.
But what do we do here?
I mean, we see miracles.
We see healing, giftsof healing, miracles.
- All right, here's Ronald.
He says, will you go toHeaven if you're not baptized,
even if you pray andread your Bible daily?
- You know, Jesus saidthat those who go to Heaven
are those who do the willof my Father in Heaven.
That's what He wants,is for you to obey Him
and do the will of His Father in Heaven.
It's really got nothingto do with being baptized
or reading your Bibleevery day or anything.
It's doing the will ofmy Father in Heaven.
And baptism is a sign where
the old man is buried andraised in newness of life.
It's a symbol of what goes on.
But I think faith iswhat is gonna save you,
not baptism or not any ritual.
Well, Today's Power Minute isfrom the Book of Ephesians.
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted,
forgiving one another, evenas God in Christ forgave you.
Well, tomorrow we've got Tucker Carlson
