HOW SHE SURVIVED ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

PAT: WELCOME TO "THE 700

CLUB."

IS IT A FAMILY CONTROLLED BY A

CRIME FAMILY ENGAGED IN CRIMINAL

ENTERPRISE?

IS THAT WHAT NORTH KOREA IS?

THAT IS WHAT ONE REPUBLICAN

CONGRESSMAN DESCRIBED IT AS.

SEEMED LIKE THEY LOST THEIR

MIND.

THAT YOUNG FELLA IN CHARGE OF

NORTH KOREA SEEMS ABSOLUTELY

INSANE.

NEVERTHELESS, HE IS MAKING LOTS

OF NOISE.

THAT COUNTRY IS WARNING THE

WORLD THEY WILL NOT GIVE UP THE

NUCLEAR PROGRAM, THREATENING TO

ATTACK SOUTH KOREA AND UNITED

STATES.

TERRY: AS UNITED STATES AND

SOUTH KOREA AREN'T BACKING DOWN,

WHO KNOWS WHAT TO EXPECT.

COUNTER THEIR THREATS

REPORTER: AS THE WHITE HOUSE

SOUTHERN NEIGHBORS.

THEN THE NEXT THING THERE WAS A

WAR.

I WAS OVER THERE IN THE MARINES

AND OTHERS CALLED WHEN PRESIDENT

TRUMAN CALLED FOR TAKE OVER OF

THE KOREAN PENINSULA.

IF HE LEFT DOUGLAS MCCARTHUR

ALONE, HE WOULD HAVE SEALED OFF

THE PENINSULA AND IT WOULD HAVE

BEEN THE END.

INSTEAD OF THAT, WE WERE AFRAID

WE HAD DOVES IN WASHINGTON

AFRAID OF CHINA AND INSISTED

MACARTHUR STOP MILITARY ACTION.

THE PEOPLE ARE JUST BEING

BRUTALIZED.

REPRESENTATIVE CANE IS RIGHT.

KIM IL SUNG AND SON WHO WAS A

PLAYBOY WHILE THESE PEOPLE WERE

STARVING AND HE DIED AND SON

HORRENDOUS STRIKES THAT WILL

TAKE AWAY YOUR ENTIRE CITY AND

ENTIRE NATION IF YOU KEEP THIS

TO TAKE LIBERTIES.

THE RANCH.

A FIRE IN 2004 BURNED DOWN THREE

OF THEIR HOUSES.

LEAH'S SON MIKE WANTED TO

REBUILD AND RAN INTO A

ROADBLOCK

FROM THEIR NEIGHBOR, THE

NATIONAL AUTOBONN SOCIETY.

IT SAID NO TO THE FAMILY'S

UPGRADING ROADS SO THEY COULD

GET CONSTRUCTION CREWS TO THEIR

RANCH.

AUTOBONN HIT THEM WITH THE BOMB

SHELL IT OWNED THEIR BEST ACRES.

IT WAS LIKE BEING HIT IN THE

STOMACH.

REPORTER: AUTOBONN BROUGHT

OUT PAPER WORK.

APPROXIMATELY 300 YARDS IN

THE HILL.

YOU WOULD HAVE TO BUILD YOUR

HOUSES ON TOP OF THAT?

VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE.

THE FAMILY'S LAWYER GAVE THEM

AN ULTIMATUM.

IF YOU INTERFERE, WE ARE

GOING TO CALL THE POLICE

REPORTER: THEY SAID THEY

COULDN'T HAND THE ACRES BACK TO

THE FAMILY ONCE IT BELIEVED IT

OWNED THEM AND WENT OVER BACK

WARDS.

THIS PROPERTY HAS NEVER, EVER

BEEN YOURS, GET OVER IT.

PHIL AND FAMILY ACCUSED

AUTOBONN OF COVETING THE FIGHT.

THEY FILL ADD SUITCASE WITH

EVIDENCE, SPENT HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.

N

THOUSANDS OF HOURS.

REPORTER:

THE

FAMILY STILL

COULDN'T

REBUILD, CUT OFF FROM

PIECE OF

PARADISE.

IT WAS AN ABRUPT STOP

REPORTER: ONE BELIEVES IT

WAS THE UNDERLYING REASON FOR

THE THREE STROKES HE SUFFERED

AND SURVIVED.

AUTOBONN CAVED AND ACCEPTED THE

ORIGINAL PROPERTY LINES.

THEY COMPLETELY CAPITULATED

REPORTER: WHY, AUTOBONN

ORIGINALLY HELD BACK THE MAP

SURVEYS TO PROVE ITS CLAIM.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS, REPORTING

FROM MOUNTAIN COUNTRY IN

CALIFORNIA.

PAT: THE WORD OF THE LORD IS

SUFFER YOURSELVES TO BE

DEFRAUDED.

AS MUCH AS WITH YOU LIVE IN

PEACE WITH ALL MEN.

THOSE FIGHTS ARE VERY CORROSIVE

TO YOUR HEALTH.

TERRY: OBVIOUSLY THAT HAS

HAPPENED.

AT THE SAME TIME, DO YOU JUST

LET PEOPLE RUN ALL OVER YOU?

TERRY: NO, BETTER TO LIVE AT

PEACE.

YOU REALLY ARE.

LITTLE BIT OF LAND ON A MOUNTAIN

YOU GO TO ONCE A YEAR.

IF AUTOBONN WANTS THE DUCKS TO

FLY OVERHEAD, LET THEM HAVE IT.

AUTOBONN, RESPECTED ORGANIZATION

TO PULL A STUNT OF THAT NATURE

IS RIDICULOUS.

WE HAVE ONE COMING UP, AMERICAN

CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE.

I THINK YOU'LL BE READING ABOUT

IN THE NEWS.

BUT, APPARENTLY, THAT

DISTINGUISHED ORGANIZATION KNOWN

AS PLANNED PARENTHOOD HAS BEEN

TRIPLE BILLING THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT FOR PROCEDURES THEY

CLAIM TO HAVE PERFORMED.

TERRY: OOPS.

PAT: TRIPLE BILLING, THE

DAMAGES ARE ENORMOUS.

SO STAY TUNED FOR THAT ONE.

THAT IS ALL I CAN SAY RIGHT NOW.

IT IS A BIGGY.

THESE ORGANIZATIONS SHOULDN'T

MISBEHAVE.

THEY'LL GET THERE SOONER OR

LATER.

I TELL YOU, PIECE OF LAND, IT

ISN'T WORTH YOUR HEALTH.

IT ISN'T.

GOD WILL GIVE YOU SOMETHING

BETTER.

OKAY.

TERRY: UP NEXT, A WOMAN WHO

WOKE UP TO A LIVING NIGHTMARE.

I SAW MY LIFE FLASH BEFORE

ME.

ALL I KNEW I NEEDED TO FIGHT FOR

MY LIFE BECAUSE I WAS GETTING

READY TO DIE.

TERRY: WATCH HOW THIS WOMAN

NARROWLY ESCAPED BEING BUTCHERED

WHEN WE COME BACK.

PAT:

I

WOULD

ADVISE

WOMEN IN

THIS AUDIENCE NOT TO HAVE

ANYTHING TO DO WITH ABUSING

HUSBANDS.

LIFE IS TOO SHORT.

I WANT TO INTRODUCE YOU TO KAREN

FIKES.

SHE LIVED WITH A FEAR THAT HER

BOYFRIEND WOULD BUSHER HER.

FINALLY THIS RASCAL NEARLY DID.

REPORTER: KAREN FIKES

REMEMBERS THE NIGHT SHE WOKE UP

AND FOUND HER BOYFRIEND, STEVE

HOVERING OVER HER WITH A BUTCHER

KNIFE.

I SAW MY LIFE FLASH BEFORE

ME.

I THOUGHT I WAS GETTING READY TO

DIE.

REPORTER: STEVE AND KAREN'S

RELATIONSHIP STARTED DIFFERENTLY

A FEW YEARS EARLIER.

HER SISTER INTRODUCED THE

COUPLE.

FOR A YEAR AND A HALF STEVE

SHOWERED HER WITH GIFTS.

MY KNIGHT IS SHINING ARMOR.

IT WAS ALMOST TOO GOOD TO BE

TRUE.

REPORTER: AFTER 18 MONTHS,

KAREN DECIDED A DANGEROUS SIDE.

HE BECAME EXTREMELY CONTROLLING.

VIOLENT BEHAVIOR GREW UNTIL HE

BEAT HER REGULARLY.

HE FELT LIKE HE HAD SOME TYPE

OF CONTROL.

IF I DIDN'T DO WHAT HE WANTED ME

TO DO OR THINK THE WAY HE WANTED

ME TO THINK OR SAY WHAT HE

WANTED ME TO SAY, HE WOULD GO

OFF ON ONE OF HIS FITS.

KAREN GREW MORE HORRIFIED

WHEN SHE LEARNED STEVE WAS A

DRUG DEALER.

EACH TIME HE DRAGGED HER DOWN

AND THREATENED TO KILL HER IF

SHE LEFT.

HE FELT LIKE HE HAD THE RIGHT

TO PUT HIS HANDS ON ME EVEN IF

HE HAD TO USE A GUN OR KNIFE, HE

WOULD TELL ME, THAT I WOULD

NEVER BE ABLE TO GET AWAY FROM

HIM.

NO MATTER WHERE I GO, HE WILL

FIND ME.

WHAT KEPT ME IN THE RIFB WAS

FEAR.

I FELT LIKE I WAS TRAPPED.

I DIDN'T HAVE THE STRENGTH OR

THE POWER TO GET OUT OF IT AND

STAY OUT OF IT.

AFTER EACH OUTBURST STEVE

APOLOGIZED AND EACH TIME KAREN

HOPED THE ABUSE WOULD END.

GET AWAY!

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

REPORTER: THE NIGHT SHE WOKE

UP WITH STEVE OVER HER, SHE KNEW

IT WOULD NOT END UNTIL SHE WAS

DEAD.

I KNEW I HAD TO FIGHT FOR MY

LIFE.

REPORTER: THE STRUGGLE ENDED

AND STEVE LEFT IN A RAGE.

SHE KNEW IT WAS A MATTER OF TIME

BEFORE HE CAME BACK AND KILL

HER.

SHE CRIED OUT FOR HELP.

I SAID GOD, IF YOU DON'T HELP

ME, I AM GOING TO END UP DEAD, I

NEED YOU TO HELP ME OUT OF THIS

RELATIONSHIP?

THE NEXT DAY STEVE CALLED

FROM JAIL, HE HAD BEEN CHARGED

WITH MURDERING SOMEONE ELSE AND

SENTENCED TO OVER 20 YEARS.

I REALIZED IT COULD HAVE BEEN

ME.

KAREN WENT TO CHURCH, WHEN

THE PASTOR ASKED IF ANYONE

WANTED TO RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST

AND BE BAPTIZED, KAREN KNEW THAT

IS WHAT SHE WANTED TO DO.

I CAME OUT OF THE WATER

PRAISING GOD, HALLELUJAH.

THANK YOU, JESUS.

I FELT FREE AND LIKE I WAS GOING

TO LIVE.

AFTER EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE

BEEN THROUGH, THE ODDS WERE

AGAINST ME.

FROM THE BEGINNING OF MY LIFE,

ALWAYS SOMETHING.

I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING TO LIVE.

TODAY SHE IS A WIFE OF A

LOVING HUSBAND AND MOTHER

OF

THREE AND HAS A MESSAGE TO SHARE

WITH OTHERS, ANYONE CAN HAVE A

NEW LIFE IN JESUS CHRIST.

HE'LL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE

THERE IS HOPE, LIKE YOU CAN MAKE

IT AND GO FORWARD.

HE DID IT FOR ME.

I AM A LIVING WITNESS, A LIVING

TESTIMONY, HE'LL PICK YOU UP.

HE'LL TURN YOU AROUND.

PAT: WHAT A GREAT STORY, WHAT

A WONDERFUL TESTIMONY.

LET ME SAY SOMETHING TO PEOPLE,

YOU KNOW, KAREN SAID

SHE WAS

IN

A QUOT

E, RELATIONSHIP

WELL THAT

MEANT SHE WAS SLEEPING WITH THIS

GUY, HAVING SEXUAL RELATIONS

WITH HIM, BUT THEY WEREN'T

MARRIED.

WHERE HE CAME FROM, HE WAS NICE

TO HER, GAVE HER GIFTS, NO

WEDDING RING, NO WEDDING.

WOMEN, DON'T GIVE YOURSELVES

AWAY.

DON'T THROW YOURSELF AWAY, YOU

ARE WORTH SOMETHING.

YOU ARE SPECIAL IN GOD'S EYES.

DON'T LET SOME GUY COME ALONG

AND CHEAPEN YOU AND DEMEAN YOU

LIKE THAT MAN DID TO KAREN.

FOR THOSE OF YOU IN THIS

AUDIENCE, LET ME TELL YOU

SOMETHING, JESUS LOVES YOU.

IF YOU ARE IN AN ABUSIVE

RELATIONSHIP OR MARRIAGE, THE

LORD WILL HEAR AND HE WILL

ANSWER.

PRETTY DRAMATIC IN KAREN'S CASE,

THE GUY GETS ARRESTED AND PUTS

HIM AWAY FOR 20 YEARS.

BUT GOD RIGHT NOW WILL ANSWER

YOUR PRAYER.

YOU START OUT LIKE SHE DID BY

GIVING HERSELF TO JESUS.

YOU CAN START BY GIVING YOURSELF

TO THE LORD AND LET HIM TAKE

CHARGE.

HE IS GREATER THAN THE PERSON

WHO IS ABUSING YOU.

HE IS GOD AL ALL MIGHTY.

HE CAN RESTRAIN THE EVIL IF YOU

ARE HIS CHILD.

I WANT YOU TO DO SOMETHING, DO

IT SOMETHING.

I WANT YOU TO MEAN THIS IN YOUR

HEART.

THE LORD, GOD OF HOSTS IS GOING

TO HEAR AND HE IS GOING TO

ANSWER.

PRAY THESE WORDS, JESUS.

BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY THESE

WORDS, JESUS.

LORD, GOD, I NEED YOU.

YOU KNOW I HAVE SINNED, I

CONFESS THAT I HAVE SINNED.

I HAVEN'T LIVED FOR YOU.

AND I HAVE TRIED TO GO MY OWN

WAY.

BUT LORD, JESUS, I KNOW YOU LOVE

ME.

AND I KNOW YOU DIED THAT I MIGHT

LIVE FOREVER.

SO LORD AT THIS MOMENT, I OPEN

MY HEART TO YOU AND I ASK YOU TO

COME IN.

FILL ME WITH YOURSELF AND FROM

THIS MOMENT ON, I AM YOURS.

SO LORD, DELIVER ME FROM THE SIN

OF MY LIFE AND DELIVER ME FROM

THOSE THAT WOULD HURT ME IN

JESUS NAME.

I GIVE MYSELF TO YOU.

YOU ARE MY SAVIOR, AND YOU ARE

MY PROTECTOR.

THANK YOU, LORD, THANK YOU,

LORD, THANK YOU.

FOR THOSE THAT PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU Z FATHER N

JESUS' NAME, NOW!

THANK YOU, LORD, AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I WANT TO

DO SOMETHING FOR YOU.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING.

SAY WHAT DO YOU DO NEXT?

IT HAS BEEN SORE AND THINGS HAVE

BEEN CRACKED RIGHT NOW, BONES

ARE KNITTING

TOGETHER.

YOU ARE GOING TO BE COMPLETELY

HEALED.

ANYTHING OUT OF ORDER IS

RESTORED NOW.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, ALL PAIN

GONE.

TERRY: SOMEONE, A CHRONIC

BRONCHIAL CONDITION.

IT IS JUST BREATHING ISSUES.

JUST BREATHE IN NOW AS ALL OF

THAT LOOSENS UP, YOU ARE

BREATHING IN AIR YOU HAVE NEVER

BEEN ABLE TO TAKE IN BEFORE.

PAT: THERE IS A MAN PRAYING,

I BELIEVE HIS NAME IS GEORGE, I

AM NOT SURE.

YOU ARE PRAYING ABOUT A SUM OF

MONEY.

GOD WILL SUPPLY IT FOR YOU

DRAMATICALLY.

PRAISE HIM AND EXPECT AN ANSWER,

THANK YOU, LORD, BLESS EVERYONE

IN THIS AUDIENCE, MAY THEY HAVE

THE DELIVERANCE AND PEACE OF GOD

THAT PASSES UNDERSTANDING KEEP

THEIR HEARTS AND MINDS IN

CHRIST, JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD, AMEN.

TERRY?

TERRY: STILL AHEAD, WE ARE

GOING TO BRING IT ON.

KIM WANTS TO KNOW: CAN A PERSON

ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN ADDICTIONS

STILL BE A CHRISTIAN?

WE'LL TACKLE

KIM'S

QUESTIONS AND

MORE COMING UP.

TERRY: WE LOVE TO HEAR FROM

YOU, WE WANT TO ANSWER A FEW OF

YOUR QUESTIONS.

PAT THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM KIM,

CAN A PERSON ACTIVELY INVOLVED

IN ADDICTION A CHRISTIAN?

PAT: OF COURSE THEY CAN.

DAVID COMMITTED ADULTERY WITH

BATH SHEEBA,

IN ORDER TO COVER

IT UP, HE HAD HER HUSBAND

KILLED.

HE SAID

RESTORE UNTO ME THE JOY

OF YOUR

SALVATION AND TAKE NOT

YOUR HOLY SPIRIT FROM ME.

SO THE HOLY SPIRIT DID NOT LEAVE

DAVID WHEN HE COMMITTED

ADULTERY, WHEN HE COMMITTED A

MURDER, AND WHEN HE LIED!

HOLY SPIRIT WAS STILL THERE.

THE THING WAS HIS JOY.

NO CONSCIOUSNESS.

ACTIVELY INVOLVED, THIS IS NOT

PERMISSION TO KEEP DOING SOME

NASTY THING.

GOD WILL FORGIVE IF YOU COME TO

HIM AND ASK FOR FORGIVENESS.

IF YOU SAY I AM GOING TO IGNORE

THE PROPERTY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,

I AM GOING TO KEEP ON DOING IT.

YOU WILL KEEP ON HAVING TROUBLE

AND AT WHAT POINT YOU LOSE IT

ALL, I CAN'T SAY.

CAN YOU STILL GO TO HEAVEN, YES?

TERRY: JESUS CAME TO SET THE

CAPTIVES FREE.

PAT: HE UNDERSTANDS WE ARE

WEAK.

YOU CAN'T JUST SAY EVERY DRUNK

IS GOING TO HELL, IT IS NOT

TRUE.

TERRY: DON'T GIVE UP LOOKING

FOR THE FREEDOM.

WHY DO

AMAZED

MIRACLES

,

HAPPEN

WITH GREAT FREQUENCY IN PLACES

LIKE AFRICA AND NOT HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO ENCOURAGE

THINGS, IS AMERICA TOO FAR GONE.

PAT: THOSE PEOPLE OVERSEAS

DIDN'T GO TO IVY LEAGUE SCHOOLS.

WE ARE SO SOPHISTICATED.

WE THINK WE HAVE EVERYTHING

FIGURED OUT.

WE KNOW ABOUT EVOLUTION AND

DARWIN THAT SAYS GOD ISN'T REAL.

IF WE HAVE BEEN IN MANY SCHOOLS,

WE HAVE BEEN INUNDATED WITH

SKEPTICISM AND SECULARISM.

OVERSEAS THEY ARE SIMPLE,

HUMBLE.

YOU TELL THEM GOD LOVES THEM,

GOD LOVES ME.

YOU TELL THEM GOD WILL DO

MIRACLES, THEY BELIEVE.

TERRY: THIS IS FROM JOSHUA

THAT SAYS I WAS RECENTLY TALKING

TO HER VIEWS ON MARRIAGE, I SAID

DOES YOUR HUSBAND COMES BEFORE

YOUR KIDS, SHE SAID NO.

SHE SAID HER KIDS WILL ALWAYS

COME BEFORE HIM.

IS THERE ANYTHING IN THE BIBLE

THAT SAYS KIDS COME BEFORE THE

SPOUSE?

PAT: ABSOLUTELY, NOT.

YOU ARE TO LOVE YOUR WIFE, YOUR

HUSBAND.

YOUR HUSBAND IS GOING TO BE AS

IS JESUS IS THE CHURCH, HUSBAND

CHERISHES THE WIFE AS THE LORD

CHERISHES THE CHURCH.

THEY ARE TO BE TOGETHER

OBVIOUSLY AS ONE.

THE TRUTH IS, BELIEVE ME, MY

YOUNGEST IS TURNING 50 IN JUST A

FEW DAYS.

THEY LEAVE HOME, THEY GET THEIR

OWN HUSBANDS AND WIVES AND

CHILDREN, A SEPARATE LIFE.

WHAT IS LEFT IS THE RELATIONSHIP

BETWEEN HUSBAND AND WIFE.

YOU START IT AND GOING TO KEEP

ON.

THAT RELATIONSHIP HAS TO BE

STRONG.

SO TO SAY I APPRECIATE MY

HUSBAND WHO IS A NICE SPERM

DONOR AND ALL I CARE ABOUT IS MY

KIDS, IT IS OUTRAGEOUS AND NOT

BIBLICAL.

TERRY: SHE'LL FIND THAT OUT

DOWN THE ROAD.

PAT: YOU'LL FIND THAT OUT

WHEN THEY ALL LEAVE HOME.

TERRY: THIS IS FROM DAX

RECENTLY I BEGAN TO DOUBT GOD'S

EXISTENCE, I HAVE QUIT BELIEVING

ENTIRELY.

HOW CAN WE KNOW HE IS REALLY

THERE?

I HAVE BEEN PRAYING ABOUT IT

OVER A YEAR ASKING GOD TO REVEAL

HIMSELF TO ME.

WHAT CAN I DO WHEN GOD IS

SILENT?

PAT: SEE THIS THING HERE?

IT IS CALLED A BIBLE.

GOD EXPRESSED HIMSELF IN THIS

BOOK.

IT IS HIS LOVER LETTER.

YOU WILL FIND OUT ABOUT HIM AND

HIS PLAN FOR YOU.

THAT IS WHERE HE EXISTS.

ALSO LOOK AT THE STARS.

LOOK AT THE MOUNTAINS.

LOOK AT THE SEA.

LOOK AT THE GRASS, THE TREES,

THE BIRDS, THE CREATION AROUND

HIM.

I CONSIDER THE HEAVENS THE WORKS

OF THE HAND, THE SUN AND MOON

THAT THOU HAS CREATED.

YOU WONDER, YOU SAY GOD, THIS IS

ALL YOUR UNIVERSE.

AND TO SAY YOU DOUBT HIS

EXISTENCE.

HE DOESN'T HAVE TO GIVE YOU A

SPECIAL REVELATION.

I ASKED GOD TO TELL ME

SOMETHING, THEREFORE I DIDN'T

BELIEVE.

READ THE BIBLE.

FAITH COMES BY HEARING AND

HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD.

TERRY: I THINK DAX HAS

FAITH.

HE WAS PRAYING FOR A YEAR.

HE IS CONCERNED HE DOESN'T

BELIEVE.

YOU NEED TO STIR UP THOSE EMBERS

WITH THE TRUTH.

PAT: WITH THE BIBLE.

WITH THE WORD OF GOD.

TERRY: RACHEL SAYS EVERY

TIME I TURN ON THE TV.

SOMETHING ABOUT THE BIBLE IS ON.

PAT: THE BIBLE IS THE MOST

POPULAR BOOK EVER WRITTEN.

MORE COPIES ABOUT THE BIBLE THAN

ANYTHING.

TERRY: THERE HAS BEEN A LOT

ON BECAUSE OF THE BIBLE SERIES

AND IT RAN OVER FIVE WEEKS.

PAT: THAT ISN'T ALWAYS THE

CASE.

TERRY: WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS.

TODAY SHAW CHIN IS A BUDDING

YOUNG ARTIST WITH A PROMISING

YOUNG FUTURE.

FOR YEARS SHE FEARED SHE

WOULDN'T HAVE ANY FUTURE AT ALL.

MY DREAM IS TO ONE DAY BE A

CLOTHING DESIGNER.

I LOVE TO PAINT.

TERRY: SHE USED TO SPEND

HOURS DRAWING THE THINGS SHE WAS

TOLD SHE WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO

DO.

SHE GREW UP WITH A SERIOUS HEART

DEFECT.

WHENEVER I TRIED

TO RUN, I

COULDN'T BREATHE AND MY LIPS

TURNED PURPLE.

I FELL DOWN AND FAINTED A LOT.

I CRIED ALL OF THE TIME FOR MY

DAUGHTER.

I ASK MYSELF WHY SHE HAD TO

SUFFER.

TERRY: SHE NEEDED HEART

SURGERY.

HER FATHER DIED WHEN SHE WAS

NEARLY FOUR.

IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE.

HER

MOTHER

WAS POOR DESPITE THE

LONG DAYS SHE WORK.

I

TRIED TO SAVE ENOUGH FOR

HER HEART SURGERY.

I COULD NEVER SAVE ENOUGH.

TERRY: SHE TOOK A JOB AT THE

CLOTHING FACTORY.

SHE WAS TOO WEAK.

SHE HAD TO RETURN HOME.

ALL SHE COULD DO IS LIVE

VICARIOUSLY THROUGH HER

PAINTINGS AND SLEEP.

I WONDERED IF THAT WAS WHAT

MY LIFE WAS ABOUT, WAITING TO

DIE.

TERRY: A COUPLE FOUND CBN'S

WEBSITE AND HOW WE FOUND MEDICAL

ASSISTANCE.

I COULDN'T STOP SMILING FOR

JOY.

TERRY: CBN SET UP HEART

SURGERY FOR HER.

THOSE FOUR HOURS IN THE

OPERATING ROOM COMPLETELY

CHANGED HER LIFE.

TODAY SHE IS PURSUING HER DREAM

OF BECOMING A PROFESSIONAL

ARTIST.

IT IS ALL BECAUSE OF YOUR

HEALTH, THANK YOU, CBN.

I HAVE NO MORE PAIN.

I AM FEELING GREAT NOW.

I AM LIKE A BIRD THAT HAS BEEN

RELEASED FROM A CAGE AND FLYING

HIGH AND
