The 700 Club - April 2, 2013

Andrew experienced enviable success in the business world, but something was missing. Plus, Joe was surprised when his red swollen foot was mentioned by Pat Robertson in a prayer on The 700 Club. Read Transcript


AN AUTHOR WHO HAS BEEN

READ AROUND THE WORLD.

I THRIVED ON SHOWING HOW

SUCCESSFUL I COULD BE.

GET THE BOOK HE COULDN'T

PUT DOWN.

I READ THAT AND I WAS

STOPPED DEAD IN MY TRACKS.

WHAT HE READ.

I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE

MET SOMEONE LIKE THAT.

HE IS THE ONLY PERSON WHO

TRULY AND COMPLETELY

ACCEPTED ME.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

I THINK PEOPLE ARE ASKING

THEMSELVES, IS THERE IS A

BUNCH OF CRAZIES OVER IN

NORTH KOREA FOR REAL, OR ARE

THEY JUST BLUFFING.

DO THEY REALLY INTEND ON

USING NUCLEAR WEAPONS

AGAINST AMERICA?

IF THEY ARE, WE OUGHT TO

TAKE THEM OUT.

IF THEY'RE NOT, WE OUGHT TO

JUST SMILE AND SAY YOU'RE

CRAZY, AND LET THEM GO THEIR

WAY.

NORTH KOREA IS TAKING A BIG

STEP WITH THEIR NUCLEAR

PROGRAM, ONE THAT IS RAISING

TENSIONS, NOT ONLY IN THAT

PENINSULA, BUT ALL OVER

AROUND ASIA.

Terry: NORTH KOREA'S

MOVE COULD LEAD TO MORE

NUCLEAR WEAPONS, AND A

POSSIBLE THREAT TO THE

UNITED STATES.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE FEAR OF

A

WAR WITH NORTH KOREA

CONTINUES TO GROW.

WITH THE REGIME'S MOUNTING

THREATS AGAINST THE U.S. AND

SOUTH KOREA.

THE LATEST MOVE IN THE

NUCLEAR STANDOFF, LEADER KIM

JONG UN SAYS HE WILL RESTART

A DORMANT REACTOR IN HIS

MAIN NUCLEAR FACILITY, ONE

THAT HAS THE ABILITY TO

PRODUCE MATERIAL FOR ONE

ATOMIC BOMB PER YEAR.

THE REACTOR WAS SHUT DOWN IN

2007, AS PART OF

INTERNATIONAL NUCLEAR

DISARMAMENT TALKS.

THIS MARKS THE FIRST TIME

NORTH KOREA ADMITTED THE

REACTOR WOULD BE USED TO

MAKE NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

WHEN IT WAS FIRST UNVEILED,

THE NORTH INSISTED IT WAS TO

GENERATE ELECTRICITY.

EVEN WITH THIS LATEST ROUND

OF THREATS, THE WHITE HOUSE

SAYS THERE IS NO EVIDENCE

KIM JONG UN WILL ACTUALLY

ACT.

DESPITE THE HARSH

RHETORIC WE'RE HEARING FROM

PYONGYANG, WE'RE NOT SEEING

CHANGES TO THE NORTH KOREAN

MILITARY POSTURE, SUCH AS

LARGE-SCALE MOBILEIZATIONS,

AND POSITIONING OF FORCES.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

THE WASHINGTON FREE BEACON

REPORTS CHINA HAS BEGUN

ACTIVATING TROOPS NEAR THE

KOREAN PENINSULA.

CHINA IS OBLIGATED TO D.V.D.

NORT DEFEND NORTH KOREA

UNDER A TREATY BETWEEN THE

TWO COUNTRIES.

AND NORTH KOREA IS IS

SENDING STEALTH B-2 BOMBERS,

AND NOW A U.S. NAVY

DESTROYER TO THE REGION.

WE BELIEVE THIS HAS

REDUCED THE CHANCE OF

MISCALCULATION AND

PROVOCATION.

Reporter: NORTH KOREA

CLAIMS IT IS WORKING TOWARDS

NUCLEAR-TIPPED MISSILES THAT

CAN REACH THE UNITED

STATES.

IT IS NOT BELIEVED TO

CURRENTLY HAVE THE

TECHNOLOGY.

BUT U.S. MILITARY BASES

WITHIN THE REGION WOULD BE

WITHIN REACH OF A NORTH

KOREAN STRIKE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: OVER 50 YEARS AGO,

ANOTHER FANATIC WROTE A

BOOK.

AND HE OUTLINED HIS PLANS

FOR EXPANDING GERMANY AND

TAKING OVER SURROUNDING

COUNTRIES, AND SUBJAGATING

JEWS, AND EVERYBODY SAID HE

WAS JUST A FANATIC.

WELL, OVER 50 MILLION PEOPLE

DIED BECAUSE OF THAT

FANATIC'S RAGING.

AND WE HAD TO ENGAGE IN A

TERRIBLE WAR, A COSTLY WAR.

A WAR THAT TOOK THE LIVES OF

THOUSANDS OF OUR YOUNG MEN

IN SERVICE.

IS THIS FANATIC, JUST

RAVING, OR IS IT GOING TO BE

SOMETHING REAL?

IF IT IS SOMETHING REAL, WE

OUGHT TO PUT THEM DOWN

FAST.

WE COULD BOMB THEM INTO

SUBMISSION.

PYONGYANG ISN'T ALL THAT

BIG.

THE THREAT RIGHT NOW IS TO

SOUTH KOREA BECAUSE THE

NORTH HAS ALL KINDS OF

ARTILLERY UNITS AND

BATTERIES AND DIVISIONS OF

TROOPS RIGHT ON THE BORDER.

AND SEOUL IS RIGHT NEXT TO

THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER.

SO SOUTH KOREA IS OBVIOUSLY

CONCERNED.

AND WHAT WE DO TO STOP

THEM -- WE CAN'T HAVE A

CONVENTIONAL WAR.

THERE IS NO WAY THE UNITED

STATES CAN SEND TROOPS INTO

KOREA AGAIN, BUT WE CAN SURE

TAKE THEM OUT AND USE THE

POWER WE'VE GOT, IF WE HAVE

TO.

LET'S HOPE WE DON'T.

WELL, WHILE WASHINGTON IS

WORRYING ABOUT NORTH KOREA,

A MAJOR CITY IN CALIFORNIA

HAS A FINANCIAL PROBLEM ON

ITS HANDS.

STOCKTON -- IF YOU KNOW SOME

OF THE WRITINGS OF GRAPES OF

WRATH AND SO FORTH, STOCKTON

PLAYED A GREAT ROLE IN THE

OLD DAYS OF CALIFORNIA.

BUT THAT CITY OF LEGEND IS

IS GOING BANKRUPT.

LEE WEBB HAS MORE ON THAT

FROM THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

LEE?

Lee: YOU HAVE TO ASK

YOURSELF, HOW DOES A CITY GO

BANKRUPT, BUT IT HAS

HAPPENED.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS RULED,

PAT, THAT STOCKTON,

CALIFORNIA, CANNOT PAY ITS

BILLS AND HAS NO OTHER

OPTIONS.

STOCKTON IS THE MOST

POPULATED CITY IN THE U.S.

TO DECLARE BANKRUPTCY.

SEVERAL FACTORS CONTRIBUTED

TO THE CRISIS, PLUMMETING

PROPERTY TAXES, AND GENEROUS

BENEFITS FOR CITY

EMPLOYEES.

CITY OFFICIALS WILL BEGIN

NEGOTIATIONS CREDITORS TO

MAKE SMALLER PAYMENTS ON THE

MILLIONS THEY'RE OWED.

LAWYERS FOR THE CREDITORS

INSIST THE CITY OF STOCKTON

HAS NOT TRIED HARD ENOUGH TO

FIND THE MONEY.

INVESTORS ARE EXPECTING

STOCKS TO DO WELL FOR THE

REST OF 2013.

THE MARKET STARTED THE YEAR

WITH THE STRONGEST THREE

MONTHS SINCE 1998.

HISTORY HAS SHOWN WHEN

STOCKS ARE STRONG IN THE

FIRST QUARTER, THEY DO WELL

FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR.

SOME INVESTORS CAUTION,

THOUGH, THAT THE MARKET IS

DUE FOR A PULLBACK.

MANY ANALYSTS THINK THE

MARKET WILL SET MORE RECORD

HIGHS LATER THIS YEAR AND

NEXT.

THEY ALSO EXPECT THE PRICE

OF OIL TO MOVE UP, TOO.

THEY'RE MIXED ON THE

PROSPECTS FOR OTHER

INVESTMENTS, PAT, LIKE GOLD

AND SILVER.

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Pat: WELL, I'VE PLAYED

SPROTT, PLATINUM, AND

PALLADIUM.

AND I THINK THERE IS A

SHORTAGE OF PLATINUM, AND

THAT MIGHT GO UP.

GOLD IS TIPPING OVER ANOTHER

LEVEL.

BUT, LEE, THE THING ABOUT

THE MARKET IS IT IS A

FUNCTION OF MONEY.

MONEY COMES IN, THE MARKET

GOES UP.

AND THE FEDERAL RESERVE

BOARD HAS OPENED THE

SPIGGOTS AND IT IS JUST

POURING AND POURING IN.

WHEN PEOPLE CAN BORROW MONEY

AT VIRTUALLY NO COST

WHATSOEVER, WHY NOT

SPECULATE ON STOCKS.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF STOCKS

THAT ARE PAYING DIVIDENDS IN

THE 6%, 7%, 8% RANGE, AND

THEY'RE GOOD COMPANIES,

TOO.

WHY NOT DO A LITTLE CARRY

TRADE WHEN YOU CAN BORROW

MONEY AT A HALF PERCENT OR

1% INTEREST, AND YOU CAN, IN

TURN, GET 4%, 5%, 6%, AND

THE POSSIBILITY OF CAPITAL

APPRECIATION.

THERE IS A HUGE AMOUNT OF

MONEY ON THE SIDELINES AND

PEOPLE ARE CHASING THESE

YIELDS.

I TELL YOU, DOWN THE ROAD,

IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD.

I THINK SOONER OR LATER

THERE IS IS GOING TO BE A

BIG CRASH, BUT IT IS NOT

YET.

SO THE PARTY IS STILL GOING

ON AND THEY HAVEN'T TAKEN

THE PUNCH BOWL AWAY.

Lee: PALESTINIANS CALL

IT THE WEST BANK, AND JEWISH

PEOPLE CALL IT THEIR

BIBLICAL HOMELAND.

MUCH OF THE WORLD WANTS

ISRAEL TO STOP BUILDING IN

JUDEA AND SOMARIA.

INSTEAD, SOME PEOPLE ARE

PUTTING DOWN ROOTS FOR

GENERATIONS TO COME.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY.

THIS IS WHERE WE'RE AT A

PLAYGROUND THAT MY

ORGANIZATION, THE CHILDREN'S

FUND, HAS SET UP FOR THE

CHILDREN HERE.

THIS IS A COMMUNITY THAT WAS

ESTABLISHED SEVERAL YEARS

AGO.

Reporter: BUT IN 2001,

IT WAS A MURDER SEEN AFTER A

30-YEAR-OLD DIED IN A TERROR

ATTACK.

TERRORISTS KILLED AND

WOUNDED MANY ISRAELIS ALONG

THIS HIGHWAY, WHERE ABRAHAM,

ISAAC, AND JACOB ONCE

TRAVELLED.

DAVID RUBIN AND HIS SON

SURVIVED ONE SUCH

ATTACK

ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO.

ONE WAY WE ISRAELIS HERE

IN

SOMARIA RESPOND TO

TERRORISM IS BY ESTABLISHING

NEW COMMUNITIES.

Reporter: HE IS IN THE

DISPUTED WEST BANK, AN AREA

MUCH OF THE WORLD CONSIDERS

OCCUPIED.

THE BIBLE CALLS IT JUDEA AND

SOMARIA, AN INHERITANCE

PROMISED TO THE JEWISH

PEOPLE, BUT PALESTINIANS

WANTED FOR A FUTURE STATE.

MY POSITION, AND THE

UNITED NATIONS POSITION, ON

SETTLEMENT IS CLEAR.

IT DOES NOT HELP THE ONGOING

PEACE PROCESS.

THEY REALLY THINK THAT

THE LAND OF ISRAEL BELONGS

TO THE ARABS, NOT TO THE

JEWS.

SO THEY LOOK AT EVERYTHING

WE DO HERE AS ILLEGAL.

Reporter: BUT EVEN THE

LEAGUE OF NATIONS, PRECURSOR

TO THE U.N., ACTUALLY

ENCOURAGED JEWISH

SETTLEMENT.

ARTICLE 6 READS: "THE

ADMINISTRATION OF PALESTINE,

WHILE ENSURING THAT THE

RIGHTS AND POSITIONS OF THE

OTHER POPULATIONS ARE NOT

PREJUDICE, SHALL ENCOURAGE

CLOSE SETTLEMENT BY JEWS ON

THE LAND."

OUR MESSAGE IS WE WILL

NOT SURRENDER TO TERRORISM.

WE WILL DO

THE OPPOSITE OF

WHAT THE TERRORISTS WANT US

TO DO, WHICH IS TO BUILD FOR

THE FUTURE THROUGH NEXT

GENERATIONS.

THAT'S WHAT THIS PLAYGROUND

HERE IS ALL ABOUT.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, SYRIA.

Lee: PAT, CAN THERE

EVER BE A RESOLUTION THERE?

Pat: PROBABLY NOT

BEFORE THE LORD COMES BACK.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, I THINK

WHAT WE'RE DOING IS NOT

HELPFUL.

I THINK THE ISRAELIS ARE

SMART TO COLONIZE AS MUCH OF

THAT LAND AS THEY CAN, AND

TO BUILD THE SETTLEMENTS

THERE.

THEY'RE NOT SETTLEMENTS.

YOU GO OVER THERE, AND

THEY'RE FULL CITIES WITH

UNIVERSITIES AND FACTORIES

AND EMPLOYMENT, AND MODERN

HIGHWAYS, AND ALL OF THE

ATTRIBUTES OF CIVILIZATION.

AND EVERY TIME YOU SEE THE

JEWS WORKING OR THE ISRAELIS

WORKING, IT IS BENEFICIAL.

BUT AS FAR AS JERUSALEM, THE

CAPITAL, OF COURSE THEY CAN

BUILD APARTMENTS IN THEIR

OWN CAPITAL.

THIS IS RIDICULOUS THAT

ANYBODY WOULD TELL THE

JEWISH PEOPLE YOU CAN'T

BUILD.

IT IS LIKE SOMEBODY TELLING

THE UNITED STATES YOU CAN'T

BUILD APARTMENTS IN

WASHINGTON, D.C., OR THAT

THE PEOPLE IN CANADA CAN'T

BUILD IN TORONTO OR MONTREAL

OR OTTAWA.

I MEAN, IT IS ABSURD.

SO THEY WILL KEEP ON

BUILDING, AND IT IS TIME WE,

AS A NATION, STAY OUT OF IT

AND LET THEM WORK IT OUT

AMONG THEMSELVES.

CAN IT EVER BE FIXED?

PROBABLY NOT.

Lee: PAT, THE FINAL

EPISODE OF THE "THE BIBLE"

MINI SERIES HAD A HUGE

FOLLOWING.

11.7MILLION VIEWERS TUNED

IN.

THE FINAL INSTALLMENT

INCLUDED THE CRUCIFIXION AND

RESURRECTION OF JESUS.

THE SUCCESS OF THE SERIES

MAKES THE HISTORY CHANNEL

THE TOP CABLE NETWORK FOR

THE MONTH OF MARCH.

AMERICA'S YOUNG GUEST

ADOLESCENCE ARE NOT AS

SEXUALLY ACTIVE AS PEOPLE

MIGHT THINK.

1.1% OF 11-YEAR-OLDS, AND

2.4% OF 12-YEAR-OLDS.

AND THE REPORT FINDS 62% OF

GIRLS WHO HAD SEX BY THE AGE

OF 10 SAY THAT WAS THEIR

FIRST TIME AND IT WAS BY

FORCE.

BUT SEXUAL ACTIVITY REMAINS

COMMON AMONG OLDER

TEENAGERS.

TEENAGERS ARE SETTING

THEMSELVES UP FOR A HIGH

RISK OF HEART DISEASE

BECAUSE OF THEIR LIFESTYLE.

A NEW STUDY FROM THE

UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA FINDS

THAT TEENS ARE EATING

PROCESSED FOODS AND SNACKS,

ALONG WITH SUGARY DRINKS.

THEY'RE NOT EATING ENOUGH

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, AND

THEY'RE NOT GETTING ENOUGH

EXERCISE.

AND ONCE HEART PROBLEMS

DEVELOP IN CHILDHOOD,

THEY'RE LIKELY TO REMAIN

WITH A PERSON AS THEY GET

OLDER.

PAT?

Pat: SO I'M GOING TO

OUTLIVE MY GRANDCHILDREN.

Terry: NO.

YOUR GRANDCHILDREN ARE

EATING YOUR SOUP.

Pat: THEY'RE

LEARNING -- I HOPE THEY

ARE.

WHEN IS IT GOOD NEWS TO HEAR

THAT 8-YEAR-OLDS AND

9-YEAR-OLDS ARE HAVING SEX?

SINCE WHEN DID LITTLE BABIES

HAVE SEX?

THEY DIDN'T WHEN I WAS

GROWING UP, THEY DIDN'T EVEN

THINK ABOUT IT.

Terry: IT WOULD BE

INTERESTING TO KNOW, IS ALL

OF WHAT THEY'RE

CHRONICLING -- ARE THEY

SAYING THAT ALL OF IT IS

FORCED ON CHILDREN THAT

AGE?

Pat: THE EDUCATION IS

FORCED ON THEM.

LITTLE CHILDREN AREN'T READY

FOR THIS.

THEY DON'T WANT TO KNOW

ABOUT IT, BUT WE FORCE SEX

EDUCATION IN THE SCHOOL WHEN

THEY'RE IN KINDERGARTEN.

IT'S CRAZY.

IT'S CRAZY.

AND SO YOU HAVE ALL THESE

PICTURES, AND YOU WONDER WHY

LITTLE KIDS EXPERIMENT -- OF

COURSE THEY EXPERIMENT.

MY GOODNESS, WE'RE SUPPOSED

TO CLAP WITH JOY BECAUSE

10-YEAR-OLDS AREN'T HAVING

SEX?

PLEASE.

Terry: THAT'S A LITTLE

CRAZY.

Pat: A LITTLE CRAZY?

IT SHOWS HOW DEPRAVED WE

HAVE BECOME AS A SOCIETY.

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

IT IS A PLACE WHERE YOU'LL

FIND LATINO BUSINESSES AND

BILINGUAL SCHOOLS, AND IT

MAY NOT BE WHERE YOU THINK

IT IS.

HEAR WHY HISPANICS ARE

FLOCKING TO IOWA, OF ALL

PLACES.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELL, ARE THEY

KNOWN AS HISPANICS OR

LATINOS?

LATINOS THINK MORE OF SOUTH

AMERICA AND MEXICO, AND

HISPANIC MORE FROM SPAIN,

CUBA, AND SO FORTH.

BUT AS FAR AS WE CAN TELL,

THERE ARE MORE THAN

50 MILLION OF THIS ETHNIC

GROUP, LATINOS, WHO LIVE IN

THE UNITED STATES.

BUT THEY AREN'T LIVING WHERE

YOU THINK, NOT JUST IN

LOS ANGELES OR NEW YORK.

MANY OF THEM ARE IN THE

MIDWEST, AND THEY'RE PROVING

TO BE A TREMENDOUS BOOST FOR

THE LOCAL ECONOMIES.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: ANTONIA SOSA

OWNS AND OPERATES THIS SMALL

GROCERY WITH HIS PARENTS,

WHO IMMIGRATED FROM MEXICO

SOME 15 YEARS AGO.

WHEN YOU'RE NEW TO A

BUSINESS INDUSTRY, I MEAN,

YOU KIND OF HAVE TO FIGURE

OUT YOURSELF HOW TO RUN IT.

Reporter: HE WORKS LONG

HOURS, AND HAS FRANS FORMED

THIS STORE INTO SOMETHING OF

A COMMUNITY CENTER FOR LOCAL

HISPANICS.

THERE ARE SOME WHO COME

HERE AND ASKED FOR

TRANSLATIONS ON SOME

THINGS.

AND WE CAN CASH CHECKS.

Reporter: BUT SOSA

DOESN'T LIVE IN CALIFORNIA

OR TEXAS.

HE SERVES A BOOMING HISPANIC

POPULATION IN IOWA.

THIS COMMUNITY OF CLOSE TO

4,000 REPRESENTS A NEW WAVE

OF NEW DIVERSITY.

MANY LATINOS IN IOWA

ORIGINALLY CAME FOR JOBS IN

AGRICULTURE BUSINESSES, BUT

THEY'RE STARTING A BUSINESS

TO THEIR OWN.

AND THEY'RE ADDING ECONOMIC

OPPORTUNITIES TO A STATE

THAT COULD USE IT.

I WOULD ASK THE STATE TO

LOOK AT ANOTHER

OPPORTUNITY.

WHAT I HEAR FROM EMPLOYERS

IS THERE IS A REAL CONCERN

ABOUT WORKFORCE, WORKFORCE

SHORTAGE.

Reporter: UNIVERSITY OF

IOWA CONSULTANT JEFF SHOT

SAYS TOWNS THAT HAVE

WELCOMED LATINOS REAP

ECONOMIC DIVIDENDS.

LIBERTY MAYOR CHAD THOMAS

AGREES.

I THINK IF WE DIDN'T HAVE

THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY HERE,

WE WOULD HAVE A LOT MORE

EMPTY BUSINESSES DOWNTOWN.

Reporter: IN COUNTIES

ACROSS THE STATE, LATINOS

MAKE UP 5% OR MORE OF THE

POPULATION, AND THEY'RE

REENERGIZING THE COMMUNITIES

THEY LIVE IN.

IT IS THE CASE IN STORM

LAKE, WHERE ONE-THIRD OF THE

RESIDENTS OF HISPANIC.

YOU LOOK AT OTHER RURAL

COMMUNITIES THAT STRUGGLE TO

KEEP THEIR SCHOOLS OPEN,

THAT HAVE TO CONSOLIDATE

SCHOOL DISTRICTS, THAT

STRUGGLE TO KEEP PADS ON THE

BEDS IN THEIR HOMES AND

THINGS LIKE THAT, AND WE

HAVE A HOUSING SHORTAGE.

WE HAVE A GROWING SCHOOL

DISTRICT.

Reporter: IN FACT, SOME

FAMILIES HAVE MOVED TO WEST

LIBERTY BECAUSE OF THE

DIVERSITIY IN ITS SCHOOLS.

IT OFFERS A DUAL LANGUAGE

PROGRAM FOR ALL 12 GRADES.

BILINGUAL TEACHERS TEACH IN

SPANISH FOR HALF THE DAY,

AND IN ENGLISH THE OTHER

HALF.

PARENTS LIKE PAMELA ARE

THRILLED TO SEE THEIR KIDS

BECOMING PROFICIENT IN TWO

LANGUAGES.

IT IS REALLY GOOD BECAUSE

RIGHT NOW THEY'RE BOTH

READING IN ENGLISH AND PAN

NISHSPANISH, AND WRITING IN

ENGLISH AND SPANISH.

THEY HAVE FRIENDS IN ALL

BACKGROUNDS.

WE HEAR THEM PLAYING, AND

SOMETIMES THEY'LL SWITCH TO

SPANISH, WHICH IS AMAZING.

Reporter: WEST LIBERTY

CLASSROOMS CONTAIN MORE

HISPANIC CHILDREN THAS

CAUCASIAN.

THE LATINO POPULATION GREW

82% IN THE LAST TWO YEARS,

AND NON-HISPANIC INCREASED

BY LESS THAN 2%.@x@x

EVEN WITH THOSE NUMBERS, THE

LATINO GROWTH IN IOWA IS NO

RECENT TREND.

IT STARTED IN THE 1980s

WHEN PACKING PLANTS LIKE

TYSON FOODS IN STORM LAKE

RECRUITED WORKERS OUTSIDE

THE STATE.

EVENTUALLY THESE WORKERS

BROUGHT THEIR FAMILIES,

BRINGING EVEN MORE GROWTH.

NOW SECOND AND THIRD

GENERATIONS ARE STARTING

THEIR OWN BUSINESSES,

BOOSTING THE STATE'S ECONOMY

ONCE AGAIN.

AUGASTEIN WORKS WITH HIS

PARENTS IN THEIR TORTILLA

SHOP.

HE IS ALSO GETTING A

TECHNICAL DEGREE IN CASE THE

BUSINESS DOESN'T MAKE IT,

BUT HE SAYS HE MUCH PREFERS

WORKING FOR THE FAMILY.

I LIKE IT A LOT BETTER.

I'M NOT WORKING FOR SOMEONE

ELSE.

IT IS A LOT BETTER.

Reporter: THEY POINT

OUT STORM LAKE HAS WORKED

FOR DECADES FIGURING OUT HOW

BEST TO MEET IMMIGRANT

NEEDS.

HAS IT COME WITH

CHALLENGES?

ABSOLUTELY.

ARE THERE ISSUES THAT WE

STILL DEAL WITH OUR

DIVERSITIY?

EVERY DAY.

DO THE POSITIVES OUTWEIGH

THE NEGATIVES?

BY FAR.

Reporter: AS FOR THE

FUTURE, CHAD THOMAS SAYS

WEST LIBERTY SIMPLY SITS ON

THE FRONT EDGE OF A NATIONAL

TREND.

I THINK 30, 40 YEARS FROM

NOW, WE WON'T BE THAT

UNIQUE.

Reporter: IN THE

MEANTIME, YOUNG

ENTREPRENEURS LIKE CUROS AND

SOSA WILL WORK THEIR

DREAMS.

EACH PLAN TO EXPAND AND

BUILD THEIR BUSINESSES.

I JUST HOPE IT JUST GETS

BETTER.

WHO DOESN'T WANT TO HAVE

THEIR OWN FAMILY FLOURISH,

RIGHT?

Reporter: ON ONE LEVEL,

IT IS SIMPLY THE AMERICAN

DREAM PLAYING OUT YET AGAIN,

BUT THIS WAVE OF DIVERSITIY

ROLLING THROUGH THE MIDWEST

CARRIES ENORMOUS STAKES,

BOTH FOR OUR COUNTRY'S

ECONOMY AND A NEW

UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IT

MEANS TO BE A MELTING POT.

REPORTING IN IOWA, HEATHER

CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT IS AN AMAZING

TREND.

THEY'RE TALKING IN SOUTH

CAROLINA, LIKE LINDSAY

GRAHAM AND OTHERS, SAYING WE

HAVE A SHORTAGE OF WORKERS.

AND PEOPLE SAY THERE IS NO

SHORTAGE OF WORKERS.

BUT THE TRUTH IS IN

AGRICULTURE, THERE IS.

AND THE STUPE LABOR THAT

COMES ABOUT FROM PICKING

CROPS, YOU WANT AN UNSKILLED

LABOR FORCE.

AND THE AN ANGLO POPULATION

IS IS NOT TOO INTERESTED IN

THAT.

THE FOLKS FROM LATIN-AMERICA

COME IN AND THEY'RE VERY

HARD WORKERS.

AND THEY BRING THEIR

FAMILIES AND STAY.

I'M SO GLAD TO SEE THAT THE

LEADERS IN THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY ARE MEETING WITH THE

DEMOCRATS TO FIGURE OUT AN

IMMIGRATION BILL THAT WILL

MAKE SOME SENSE AND GIVE A

PATH TO CITIZENSHIP.

BUT ONE CONGRESSMAN GOT IN

TROUBLE THE OTHER DAY

TALKING ABOUT WETBACKS.

THESE FOLKS WERE CALLED

"WETBACKS" BECAUSE THEY SWAM

ACROSS THE RIVER TO GET IN.

BUT THEY'RE NOT SWIMMING

ACROSS.

THEY'VE BEEN HERE FOR TWO,

THREE GENERATIONS.

AND SOME OF THE PEOPLE IN

THE SOUTHWEST HAVE BEEN HERE

SINCE THE FOUNDING OF THIS

NATION AND BEFORE.

Terry: A LITTLE TOWN IN

IOWA WILL HAVE SOMETHING TO

SHARE.

Pat: THERE ARE GOING TO

BE THREE LANGUAGES IN THE

WORLD.

THE LEADING LANGUAGE IS IS

GOING TO BE ENGLISH.

THE BRITS HAVE DONE QUITE A

JOB IN SPREADING THEIR

LANGUAGE ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

THE SECOND LANGUAGE WILL

PROBABLY BE CHINESE, AND THE

THIRD WILL BE SPANISH.

I THINK IF CHILDREN ARE --

I'VE GOT A GREAT GRANDCHILD

WHO'S MOTHER IS TEACHING

CHINESE.

SHE IS LEARNING CHINESE.

AND A LOT OF THESE KIDS,

THEY'RE LEARNING SPANISH.

BECAUSE LATIN-AMERICA IS

HUGE.

AND SO TO BE ABLE TO

COMMUNICATE WITH THIS BIG

SEGMENT OF THE WORLD'S

POPULATION IS GREAT.

SO JUST KEEP THAT IN MIND,

PARENTS.

PICK A LANGUAGE, BUT I

WOULDN'T GO WIN GERMAN, IF I

WERE YOU.

NOR WOULD I GO WITH FRENCH.

FRENCH USED TO BE THE HOT

LANGUAGE OF DIPLOMACY.

NO LONGER.

Terry: IT'S NICE FOR

ORDERING A GOOD MEAL,

THOUGH.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

Terry: COMING UP NEXT,

A GLOBE-TROTTING BUSINESSMAN

WHO FOUND THE SECRET TO

SUCCESS, AND HE FOUND IT

FROM HIS OWN SON.

Terry: HOW DO YOU

MEASURE SUCCESS?

IS IT BY THE MONEY YOU EARN

OR BY THE SALES YOU MAKE?

AUTHOR ANDERS SOBO THOUGHT

SO UNTIL HE GOT A DIFFERENT

LESSON FROM THE BEST-SELLING

BOOK OF ALL TIME.

I THRIVED ON SHOWING HOW

SUCCESSFUL I COULD BE.

I WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL AT MY

COMPANY.

I WAS SUCCESSFUL WHEN I

STARTED MY OWN CONSULTING

FIRM.

I WANTED PEOPLE TO LOOK AT

ME AND LIKE ME AND FEEL I

WAS SUCCESSFUL.

Reporter: IT SEEMED

ANDREW SOBEL SUCCEEDED AT

EVERYTHING HE DID.

AFTER CLIMBING TO THE TOP OF

A LARGE GLOBAL CONSULTING

FIRM, HE STARTED HIS OWN

COMPANY, AND THEN STARTED A

SUCCESSFUL WRITING CAREER.

MY FIRST BOOK WAS VERY

SUCCESSFUL.

IT SOLD ALL OVER THE WORLD.

Reporter: IT WAS NO

SURPRISE THAT ANDREW DID SO

WELL.

AFTER ALL, IT WAS EXPECTED,

BECAUSE BOTH HIS PARENTS

WERE EDUCATED AND

SUCCESSFUL.

AND THEY WERE ALSO ATHEIST,

AND THOUGHT HIM THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE WAS

TO BE A SUCCESS.

THAT MEANT THAT I WOULD

GET PEOPLE'S APPROVAL.

I WOULD GET MY FAMILY'S

APPROVAL.

Reporter: ANDREW AND

HIS WIFE, MARY JANE, SET

VERY HIGH STANDARDS FOR

THEIR CHILDREN AS WELL.

BUT THEIR SON, CHRIS, WHO

ENLISTED IN THE AIR FORCE,

WENT AGAINST THE GRAIN AND

STARTED LIVING ON THE WILD

SIDE.

AND HE WAS STRUGGLING,

AND IT WAS VERY HARD FOR US

BECAUSE WHEN YOU'RE CHILDREN

BECOME ADULTS, YOU DON'T

CONTROL THEM.

YOU'RE POWERLESS OVER THEM,

REALLY.

AND WE STRUGGLED BECAUSE WE

DIDN'T REALLY KNOW HOW TO

HELP HIM.

Reporter: THEN AT ONE

POINT, ANDREW NOTICED CHRIS

HAD CHANGED.

HE STOPPED PARTYING AND

CARRYING ON WITH WOMEN.

LATER HE FOUND OUT HIS SON

HAD BECOME A CHRISTIAN.

DESPITE BEING RAISED WITH NO

MENTION OF GOD.

CHRIS CAME TO FAITH IN

JESUS BECAUSE A FRIEND OF

HIS GAVE HIM A BIBLE, AND HE

READ ONE OF THE GOSPELS, I

THINK THE GOSPEL OF LUKE.

LITERALLY, IN A MATTER OF

WEEKS, HE WENT FROM BEING AN

ATHEIST TO FAITH, TO REALLY

PUTTING HIS LIFE IN THE

HANDS OF JESUS.

Reporter: ANDREW

COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY HE

WOULD NEED THAT.

I JUST NEVER HONESTLY

CAME INTO CONTACT WITH

PEOPLE WHO WERE REAL

FOLLOWERS OF JESUS.

AND I HAD NEVER READ THE

BIBLE.

NO ONE, IN 55 YEARS,

ACTUALLY SAID TO ME YOU

OUGHT TO THINK ABOUT THIS,

YOU OUGHT TO CONSIDER THIS,

OR TRY READING THIS.

NO ONE EVER DID.

AND IT WAS ONLY WHEN I SAW

CHRIS, OUR SON, WHO REALLY

WHO'S LIFE HAD BEEN REALLY

TURNED AROUND, READING THE

BIBLE, I THOUGHT TO MYSELF,

WELL, MAYBE I OUGHT TO LOOK

AT IT.

Reporter: SO ANDREW

BOUGHT A BIBLE.

BUT HE HID IT FROM HIS WIFE

AND SECRETLY BEGAN READING

THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW.

THIS MAN JESUS INTRIGUED

HIM.

INCREDIBLE PERSON THIS

WAS, WHO PRACTICED RADICAL

GENEROSITY, RADICAL

FORGIVENESS, RADICAL

SACRIFICE, RADICAL

HUMILITY.

I REALLY HAD NEVER READ

ABOUT ANYONE QUITE LIKE THIS

IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: ANDREW TOLD

HIS SON HE HAD BEEN READING

THE BIBLE.

AT THE TIME CHRIS WAS

GETTING READY TO DEPLOY TO

AFGHANISTAN.

BEFORE HE LEFT, HE

ENCOURAGED HIS DAD TO READ

THE GOSPEL OF JOHN.

I CAME TO THE POINT IN

JOHN WHERE JESUS HAS THE

PASSOVER SUPPER WITH HIS

DISCIPLES, AND HE KNOWS HE'S

GOING TO DIE IN A FEW DAYS,

BE CRUCIFIED, AND HE WASHES

THEIR FEET.

I READ THAT, AND I WAS

STOPPED DEAD IN MY TRACKS.

I KNEW NO ORDINARY HUMAN

COULD DO THAT.

I NEVER IN MY LIFE MET

SOMEONE LIKE THAT, WHO WOULD

BE SUCH A SERVANT LEADER.

WHO WOULD LITERALLY WASH THE

FEET OF THEIR FOLLOWERS.

Reporter: THE MORE HE

READ, THE MORE HE UNDERSTOOD

THAT SOMETHING WAS MISSING

FROM HIS LIFE.

DEEP, DEEP DOWN I NEVER

REALLY FELT TRULY ACCEPTED,

EVEN LOVED.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT

ANDREW REALIZED WHAT HE HAD

BEEN SEEKING ALL OF HIS

LIFE, AND IT HAD NOTHING TO

DO WITH SUCCESS.

AND AS I DRIFTED OFF TO

SLEEP, A WORD JUST POPPED

INTO MY HEAD.

AND THAT WORD WAS

"ACCEPTANCE."

AND IT JUST FILLED MY HEAD.

ACCEPTANCE.

AND I SUDDENLY UNDERSTOOD

WHY JESUS -- WHY I WAS

READING THE GOSPELS, AND I

REALIZED THAT HE WAS THE

ONLY PERSON WHO HAD TRULY,

COMPLETELY, AND TOTALLY

ACCEPTED ME.

HE DIDN'T CARE ABOUT ALL THE

STATUS THINGS.

HE DIDN'T CARE WHAT KIND OF

CAR I DROVE.

HE DIDN'T CARE HOW MANY

BOOKS I SOLD.

HE DIDN'T CARE HOW MUCH

MONEY I MADE.

HE DIDN'T CARE IF MY KIDS

WERE SUCCESSFUL OR NOT, IN

TERMS OF MY WORTH AS A

PERSON, AND HIS LOVE -- YOU

KNOW, GOD'S LOVE FOR ME.

NONE OF THAT WAS IMPORTANT.

Reporter: LIKE HIS SON,

CHRIS, ANDREW PUT HIS LIFE

IN THE HANDS OF JESUS.

SO DID HIS WIFE, MARY JANE,

WHO HAD BEEN ON HER OWN

JOURNEY.

THEY SOON FOUND A CHURCH

DOWN THE STREET FROM THEIR

MANHATTAN APARTMENT.

ANDREW WAS SO CHANGED BY

GOD'S LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE,

HE TOOK HIS LIFE IN ANOTHER

DIRECTION.

I BEGAN PLANNING MY MOST

RECENT BOOK "POWER

QUESTIONS," AS I WAS COMING

TO FAITH IN JESUS, AND

READING ABOUT JESUS.

AND I REALIZED READING THE

GOSPELS, JESUS WAS A MASTER

AT ASKING QUESTIONS.

Reporter: "POWER

QUESTIONS" HAS BECOME

ANDREW'S MOST SUCCESSFUL

BOOK.

AND IT INCLUDES A CHAPTER ON

JESUS' GREATEST QUESTION:

WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?

ONE OF THE BIGGEST

REALIZATIONS I'VE HAD FROM

READING ABOUT JESUS AND

READING THE GOSPELS COMES

FROM JOHN, AND JESUS'

ENCOUNTER WITH THE SAMARITAN

WOMAN AT THE WELL.

AND WHAT HE IS SAYING, I

THINK, IS IF YOU TRY TO GET

YOUR MEANING IN LIFE, YOUR

DEPOSIT SIGNIFICANCE FROM

THINGS OF THIS WORLD, FROM

YOUR JOB, FROM CAREER, FROM

MAKING LOTS OF MONEY, FROM

HAVING PERFECT CHILDREN OR

HAVING THE PERFECT MARRIAGE,

POWER, SEX, WHATEVER IT IS,

YOU WILL DIE OF THIRST.

AND NOW I REALIZE THAT THE

PURSUIT OF THOSE THINGS ARE

OKAY, BUT IF THAT IS IS YOUR

WHOLE MEANING IN LIFE, YOU

DIE OF THIRST.

I THINK THROUGH GOD, THROUGH

JESUS, THERE IS LIVING WATER

THAT IS THAT PERPETUAL

SATISFACTION.

Terry: BY WHAT STANDARD

DO YOU DEFINE YOURSELF?

IS IT YOUR SUCCESS IN LIFE?

IS IT THE AMOUNT OF MONEY

THAT YOU MAKE OR THE

EDUCATION THAT YOU'VE

ACQUIRED?

MAYBE IT IS YOUR

ATTRACTIVENESS?

MAYBE IT IS THE FRIENDS THAT

YOU HANG WITH, THE FAMILY

THAT YOU'VE CREATED.

YOU KNOW, ALL OF THOSE

THINGS, IN THE END, ARE VERY

FLEETING.

AND AT SOME POINT IN LIFE,

SHOULD YOU BE BLESSED TO

LIVE LONG ENOUGH, YOU'LL

COME TO THE PLACE WHERE YOU

ASK THE QUESTION: WHAT IS

ALL OF THIS ALL ABOUT?

WHY HAVE I DONE ALL OF

THIS?

WHO REALLY CARES ABOUT ME?

WHY DOES MY LIFE MATTER?

WHAT IS MY PURPOSE FOR

BEING?

AND IN THE END, WE LOOK FOR

WHAT ANDREW FOUND, AND THAT

IS SOMEONE TO LOVE US.

SOMEONE TO GIVE MEANING TO

OUR LIVES BECAUSE OF OUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM.

ONLY JESUS CAN DO THAT FOR

YOU.

IN EVERY OTHER RELIGION I

KNOW, THE PEOPLE WHO WORSHIP

IN THOSE RELIGIONS ARE

CONSTANTLY REACH UP, TRYING

TO APPEASE A GOD, TO SOMEHOW

BE NOTICED, MAKE CONTACT,

HAVE FAVOR SHOWN UPON THEM.

BUT IN THE FAITH OF CHRIST,

BELIEVING IN CHRIST, HE

SAYS, I STAND AT THE DOOR

AND KNOCK.

HE IS HERE.

HE IS LOVING US.

HE IS AVAILABLE TO US.

HE IS WANTING TO GIVE US

LIFE, BUT NOT JUST LIFE, BUT

ABUNDANT LIFE.

AND HE GETS OUR FAILINGS AND

SHORTCOMINGS, AND AMAZINGLY

LOVES US ANYWAY.

WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO FIND

THAT?

WHEN ANDREW SAYS THAT HE IS

A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST,

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE?

IT MEANS HIS LIFE IS

RADICALLY CHANGED.

HE IS NOT LIVING FOR THE

STUFF ANYMORE.

HE IS NOT LIVING FOR THE

TITLES OR THE RECOGNITION OR

ANY OF THAT.

HE IS LIVING TO BECOME LIKE

THE ONE HE FOLLOWS.

ONE WHO AT THE POINT OF

ENTERING INTO THE GREATEST

ANGUISH OF HIS EXISTENCE

TOOK OFF HIS ROBE AND SAT

DOWN AT THE FEET OF THOSE

WHO FOLLOWED HIM AND WASHED

THEIR FEET.

HUMBLED HIMSELF AND GAVE AN

EXAMPLE SAYING, BY HIS

BEHAVIOR, HIS IS HOW WE

LIVE.

THIS IS HOW WE LOVE.

THIS IS WHO I AM.

WILL YOU FOLLOW ME?

WILL YOU LET ME LOVE YOU?

IT BEGINS WITH LETTING HIM

LOVE US.

AND THEN ONCE WE UNDERSTAND

HOW GREAT THAT LOVE IS, HOW

GREAT HIS SACRIFICE FOR US

WAS, YOU CAN'T STOP LOVING

HIM.

YOU CAN KNOW THAT IN YOUR

LIFE.

ONCE YOU COME TO KNOW JESUS,

YOU ALSO COME TO UNDERSTAND

HOW FAR SHORT OF THE MARK

WITH ALL FALL.

HOW MANY THINGS WE HAVE DONE

THAT HAVE NOT JUST SEPARATED

US FROM GOD'S LOVE, BUT IT

HURT OTHER PEOPLE.

AND PART OF COMING TO HIM IS

RECEIVING FORGIVENESS.

OPEN FORGIVENESS FOR THE

THINGS THAT YOU HAVE DONE,

ASKING THAT YOU WOULD BE

REPENTANT FOR THEM.

WOULD YOU LIKE A NEW

BEGINNING TODAY?

YOU CAN HAVE THAT.

YOU CAN HAVE THAT.

ASK FOR IT.

INVITE HIM IN.

HE IS NOT GOING TO FORCE HIS

WAY INTO YOUR HEART OR YOUR

LIFE.

HE IS NOT GOING TO DEMAND

PERFORMANCE FOR YOU.

HE WANTS YOU TO LOVE HIM THE

SAME WAY HE LOVES YOU.

SO PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

JESUS, I'VE NEVER REALLY

UNDERSTOOD WHAT THIS IS ALL

ABOUT, BUT TODAY I'M

LISTENING TO ANDREW'S STORY

AND I'M SAYING, I WANT TO

KNOW YOU LIKE THAT.

I WANT TO SET ASIDE THE

EMPTY THINGS AND THE EMPTY

ROLES I'VE PLAYED AND ALL OF

THE EMPTY PURSUITS THAT HAVE

BEEN A PART OF MY LIFE TO

KNOW YOU.

SO WILL YOU COME INTO MY

HEART?

FORGIVE MY SINS, GOD, ALL OF

THEM.

YOU KNOW ME.

YOU KNOW ME.

I WANT TO CHANGE.

I WANT TO BE LIKE YOU,

JESUS.

I WANT A NEW BEGINNING, A

NEW DAY, A NEW LIFE.

I'M ASKING YOU TO CHANGE THE

WAY I THINK, THE WAY I FEEL,

MY UNDERSTANDING OF THINGS.

GIVE ME EYES TO SEE YOU IN

THE WORLD AROUND ME, AND

EARS TO HEAR YOU WHEN YOU

SPEAK TO MY HEART.

AND WHEN I OPEN THE BOOK,

THE BEST-SELLING BOOK OF ALL

TIME, AND I READ THE STORY

OF YOU, GIVE ME THE HEART TO

UNDERSTAND THAT, GOD.

CHANGE ME AND LET ME LIVE

FOR YOU.

FILL ME WITH YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME I PRAY.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE PRAYED THAT

PRAYER, THEN YOU'VE BEGUN A

RELATIONSHIP THAT WILL

RADICALLY CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

WE'D LIKE TO HELP YOU GROW

IN THAT RELATIONSHIP.

PAT HAS PUT THIS TOGETHER

JUST FOR YOU.

IT IS CALLED "A NEW DAY."

THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR

LIFE RIGHT NOW.

AND THIS IS FILLED WITH

WISDOM AND INFORMATION ABOUT

HOW YOU GROW IN YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

IT IS FREE.

ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS CALL

THAT TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

WHEN THE PERSON ANSWERS ON

THE OTHER END, JUST SAY, I

RECEIVED JESUS TODAY AND I

WOULD LIKE "THE NEW DAY"

PACKET AND WE'LL SEND IT

OUT.

PAT?

Pat: THANKS, TERRY.

TELEPHONES ARE AVAILABLE FOR

YOU.

STILL AHEAD, WE HAVE E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

CRAIG SAYS, "I ONLY RECALL

BIBLE PASSAGES ONLY REFER TO

MALE ANGELS.

DID GOD CREATE FEMALE

ANGELS?"

I'VE HAD ARGUMENTS ABOUT

THAT FROM CERTAIN LADIES.

I'LL TELL YOU ABOUT IT WHEN

WE "BRING IT ON."

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWS BREAK.

A NEW LAW DECRIMINALIZING

THE USE OF MARIJUANA HAS

GONE INTO EFFECT IN RHODE

ISLAND.

UNDER THE LAW, THERE NO

LONGER THE PENALTY OF JAIL

TIME FOR ANYONE CAUGHT WITH

SMALL AMOUNTS OF POT.

INSTEAD, THEY'LL FACE A $150

FINE.

THE ISSUE HAS MANY DIVIDED.

CRITICS WORRY THE LAW WILL

LEAD TO MORE PEOPLE SMOKING

POT AND MORE PROBLEMS.

WE DON'T EVEN HAVE, YOU

KNOW, DRUNK DRIVING SODA.

WE DON'T HAVE THAT.

WE ARE STILL LOSING UP TO 25

PEOPLE EVERY YEAR IN OUR

STATE, YOU KNOW, TO DRUNK

DRIVING, ALCOHOL-RELATED

CRASHES.

Reporter: SUPPORTERS OF

THE MEASURE SAY THOSE WHO

USE MARIJUANA ARE GOING TO

DO IT REGARDLESS AND THAT

THE NEW LAW WILL NOT CHANGE

ANYTHING.

RHODE ISLAND IS ALSO

PREPARING TO OPEN ITS FIRST

MEDICAL MARIJUANA

DISPENSARIES.

IT IS NOW ONE OF 13 STATES

TO DECRIMINALIZE MARIJUANA.

THE FAMILY OF AN IMPRISONED

IRANIAN CHRISTIAN HAS BEEN

SAFELY EVACUATED FROM IRAN.

THE FAMILY OF PASTOR FASHID

FAHI WAS SECRETLY

TRANSFERRED TO CANADA.

HE IS SERVING A SIX-YEAR

SENTENCE FOR BEING A

CHRISTIAN EVANGELIST.

WHEN FARSHEED WAS FIRST

ARRESTED IN 2010, HE WAS

HELD IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT

ARE FOR MORE THAN 100 DAYS.

HE HAS NOW BEEN SEPARATED

FROM HIS FAMILY AND LOVED

ONES FOR MORE TWO YEARS.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

THIS STORY AND ALWAYS GET

THE LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WE HAVE SOME

GREAT E-MAIL QUESTIONS FROM

ALL OF YOU.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE SOME

TIME TO ADDRESS THIS.

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM CRAIG,

WHO SAYS, "I ONLY RECALL

BIBLE PASSAGES THAT REFER TO

MALE ANGELS.

DID GOD CREATE FEMALE

ANGELS, AS WE OFTEN SEE

DEPICTED IN ILLUSTRATIONS

AND ON TV?"

Pat: NO, HE DIDN'T.

THERE ARE NO FEMALE ANGELS

IN THE BIBLE.

MICHAEL, GABRIEL, RAFAEL,

ALL MALES.

JESUS SAID IN THE

RESURRECTION, YOU'RE GOING

TO BE LIKE THE ANGELS, WHERE

THERE IS NEITHER MARRIAGE OR

THE GIVING OF MARRIAGE.

SO THE IDEA OF FEMALE, MALE

SEXUAL RELATIONS -- IT

DOESN'T EXIST.?

SO ANGELS ARE KIND OF LIKE

SEXLESS, BUT THEY'RE GIVEN

MALE NAMES.

BUT I HAVE A SQUABBLE WITH

MY DEAR WIFE.

IT IS NOT A VERY SERIOUS??

SQUABBLE.

BUT SHE HAS ALL OF THESE

ANGELS FOR CHRISTMAS.

Terry: SHE PUTS THEM ON

YOUR TREE.

Pat: SHE PAINTS THEM

AND SHE HAS THEM.

THEY'VE ALL GOT DRESSES.

I SAID, LISTEN, MICHAEL

DOESN'T WEAR A DRESS.

SO IN ANY EVENT, THAT'S OUR

LITTLE PROBLEM.

Terry: I THINK YOU GUYS

ARE GOOD TO GO.

Pat: I'VE LEARNED TO

LIVE WITH IT.

I LOVE HER DESPITE THE

DRESSES ON THE ANGELS.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: THIS IS KAYLIN

WHO SAYS, "I ONCE HEARD IN A

SERMON AFTER JESUS

DIED ON

THE CROSS, HE WENT TO HELL

UNTIL HE

WAS RESURRECTED.

IS THIS TRUE?

I HAVEN'T FOUND ANY BIBLICAL

TEXT TO BACK THIS UP."

Pat: NONE WHATSOEVER.

THE BIBLE SAYS HE PREACHED

TO THE SPIRITS, AND THAT

MEANT ALL THOSE HELD IN

CAPTIVITY PRIOR TO HIS

COMING HAD A CHANCE TO HEAR

THE BIBLE.

THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS.

Terry: THIS IS VALERIE

WHO SAYS, "MY PASTOR DOES

NOT SERVE COMMUNION IN OUR

CHURCH BECAUSE HE SAYS HE

DOES NOT HAVE A DEACON IN

THE CHURCH.

DOES THE BIBLE STATE RULES

FOR SERVING COMMUNION?

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY HE

COULDN'T SERVE AND PARTAKE

IN COMMUNION?"

Pat: I THINK THAT GOOD

BROTHER IS

A LITTLE

WEIRD.

THAT'S WEIRDNESS.

Terry: I HAVE NEVER

HEARD ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

Pat: THERE IS NOTHING

IN THE BIBLE THAT INDICATES

THAT SOMEBODY CAN'T SERVE

COMMUNION.

Terry: YOU DO THAT

AND

YOU PARTAKE YOURSELF?

Pat: OF COURSE.

OF COURSE.

WHERE TWO OF YOU ARE

GATHERED TOGETHER, I AM IN

THE MIDST.

IT

IS LIKE A FAMILY CAN MEET

TOGETHER AND THEY SHARE IN A

COMMUNAL MEAL.

YOU DON'T HAVE A DEACON AND

THE DEACON HAS GOT TO SERVE

YOU.

NOT BIBLICAL.

Terry: AND YOU'RE

MISSING OUT ON SOMETHING

BECAUSE THERE IS SOMETHING

THAT HAPPENS IN COMMUNION.

JORDAN SAYS, "I HAVE ALWAYS

BELIEVED THAT PEOPLE OF

MUSLIM FAITH SERVED A

DIFFERENT GOD THAN

CHRISTIANS AND JEWS.

RECENTLY I BEFRIENDED A

MUSLIM, AND LISTENING TO HIM

HAS BROUGHT UP QUESTIONS IN

MY FAITH.

IS ALLAH THE SAME GOD THAT

THE CHRISTIANS SERVE?"

Pat: IM FAT

EMPHATICALLY NO.

THE GOD OF THE BIBLE IS

YAWAY, WHATEVER NAME.

HE IS THE GOD OF BEING.

AND HIS NAME IS HE WHO

CAUSES EVERYTHING TO BE.

ALLAH LOOKS AS IF IT IS A

DERIVATIVE OF THE OLD PAGAN

BAAL.

THERE IS SOME WHO THINK HE

MAY BE THE MOON GOD OF

MECCA, WHO WAS NAMED HUBAL.

BUT ALLAH IS NOT THE SAME

GOD THAT THE CHRISTIANS AND

JEWS SERVE.

HE IS NOT, NOT AT ALL.

TO THINK YOU'RE GOING TO GET

A TRANSLATION OF THE BIBLE

THAT IS GOING TO TAKE ALLAH

AND YOU'RE GOING TO CALL

THAT GOD.

NO.

NO.

Terry: JUST THE

WRITINGS, THE TWO DIFFERENT

WRITINGS, THE QURAN AND THE

BIBLE --

Pat: THEY'RE COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT.

BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

WANT TO -- IN MUSLIM

COUNTRIES, THEY'RE GOING TO

USE -- WHEN THEY FIND A

BIBLICAL THING ABOUT GOD,

THEY PUT ALLAH IN THERE.

NO.

HE IS NOT ALLAH.

HE IS YAWAY.

HE IS --

Terry: THE GREAT I AM.

Pat: THE GREAT I AM.

Terry: A ANONYMOUS

WRITER SAYS, "I'M ALWAYS

STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY AND

FIND MYSELF VERY

DISAPPOINTED WITH QUOTE THE

PLAN GOT HAS FOR MY LIFE.

MY QUESTION IS: WHAT IF

YOU'RE FOT A FA NOT A FAN

OF THIS PLAN?

WHAT THEN?"

Pat: I THINK THE FIRST

THING YOU HAVE TO GET

STRAIGHT IS WHAT IS

HAPPENING TO YOU IS NOT

NECESSARILY QUOTE GOD'S PLAN

FOR YOU.

SHAKESPEARE WHO SAYS, THE

FAULT IS NOT WITH BRUTUS,

FROM THE STARS THEMSELVES?

I THINK A LOT OF YOUR

PROBLEMS COME FROM YOUR

REACTIONS.

YOUR OWN ABILITIES AND YOUR

OWN WORK --

Terry: EVEN CHRONIC

ILLNESS OR WHEN PEOPLE HAVE

GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT IN

LIFE --

Pat: CHRONIC ILLNESS

CAN ALSO COME ABOUT FROM

PSYCHO

PSYCHOSEMATIC

PROBLEMS, AND I DON'T WANT

TO MAKE A STATEMENT BECAUSE

DOCTORS SAY THERE ARE OTHER

THINGS.

OF COURSE THERE ARE.

IT JUST SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE

A NEGATIVE ATTITUDE.

YOU OUGHT TO PRAISE THE

LORD.

A MERRY HEART DOETH GOD LIKE

MEDICINE.

A MAN SHALL EAT GOOD BY THE

FRUIT OF HIS LIPS.

YOU CAN LITERALLY SPEAK GOOD

AROUND YOU AND THE RESULTS

BEGAN TO CHANGE.

IF YOU SPEAK NEGATIVE, YOU

WILL HAVE NEGATIVE.

SO DON'T SAY IT'S QUOTE

GOD'S PLAN.

Terry: WHEN YOU'RE IN

NEGATIVE SITUATIONS, HOW

WOULD YOU SPEA

K

POSITIVELY?

Pat: YOU START PRAISING

GOD.

YOU REALIZE THE GREATNESS OF

GOD.

YOU REALIZE THE LOVE OF GOD

FOR YOU.

YOU REALIZE HOW WONDERFUL

GOD IS, THAT HIS INTENTION

TOWARDS YOU IS GOOD AND NOT

EVIL.

THAT HE WANTS TO PROSPER YOU

AND GIVE YOU HOPE.

READ WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS AND

QUOTE SCRIPTURE AND SAY IT,

AND IT WILL GET INTO YOUR

MIND.

AND THEN THAT BECOMES PART

OF YOU.

Terry: THIS IS JUDY WHO

SAYS, "I HAVE BECOME FRIENDS

WITH SOME PEOPLE AND

RECENTLY REALIZED THEY'RE IN

THE NEW AGE BELIEF.

MY OTHER FRIENDS ARE

ADVISING ME TO STAY AWAY

FROM THESE PEOPLE BECAUSE

THEY'LL TRY TO CHANGE MY

BELIEFS.

I FIND THESE NEW AGE PEOPLE

ARE THE MOST LOVING AND

POSITIVE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE.

I DON'T WANT TO END THESE

RELATIONSHIPS.

WHAT WOULD YOU

DO?"

I BELIEVE THE FLOWER PEOPLE

AND HIPPIE PEOPLE ARE

WONDERFUL.

Terry: I

WAS ONE OF

THEM.

Pat: MAKE LOVE, NOT

WAR.

BUT THEY WERE A LITTLE BIT

WAY OUT.

AND, YES, THEY WILL TRY TO

CHANGE YOU.

LET'S HAVE FREE LOVE.

THAT'S COOL.

LET'S SMOKE A LITTLE GRASS.

THAT'S COOL.

LET'S HAVE SOME CHANTS

TOGETHER.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THEY'RE NOT

NICE PEOPLE.

THEY'RE FUN.

THEY ARE WRONG, AND, YES,

THEY WILL CORRUPT THE WAY

YOU LIVE.

YOU NEED TO COME TO A POINT

WHERE YOU SAY, I'M GOING TO

LIVE FOR JESUS.

AND IF YOU CAN'T CHANGE

THEM, DON'T LET THEM CHANGE

YOU.

AND YOU WERE ONE?

Terry: I WAS ONE.

I BELIEVE I STILL HAVE THOSE

LOVE BEADS SOMEWHERE.

Pat: AND YOU ARE SO

SERIOUS AND MATERNAL.

YOU WERE A FLOWER CHILD?

DARLING, I AM SHOCKED.

Terry: YOU'LL GET OVER

THAT.

WHILE HE IS DOING THAT, UP

NEXT, A MAN WITH CHRONIC

PAIN FINDS RELIEF ON TV.

HE DESCRIBED THE SYMPTOMS

SO ACCURATELY, AND MY WIFE

YELLED FROM THE KITCHEN,

JOE, CLAIM THAT.

AND I SAID, I AM, BABY.

Terry: SEE WHAT HE

CLAIMED AND SEE HOW IT

HEALED HIM AFTER THIS.

Pat: LINDA COOLY IS A

NURSE.

SO WHEN THE SWELLING IN HER

HUSBAND'S FOOT WOULDN'T GO

DOWN, SHE KNEW HE NEEDED TO

SEE A DOCTOR.

BEFORE LINDA COULD FINISH

MAKING SUPPER, JOE WAS

SUDDENLY HEALED.

HOW DID IT HAPPEN?

IT WAS APRIL.

I TOOK MY FIRST SPRING BIKE

RIDE WITH MY LITTLE DOG,

SOPHIE.

AND WE JUST WENT AROUND THE

BLOCK THREE OR FOUR TIMES.

CAME BACK IN, AND THE NEXT

MORNING SWELLING STARTED

INCREASING.

THERE WAS AN INCREASE IN

PAIN.

HIS FOOT WAS

APPROXIMATELY TWICE THE SIZE

IT SHOULD BE.

THERE WAS A LOT OF

INFLAMMATION AND REDNESS.

AS A NURSE, I WAS VERY

CONCERNED ABOUT THAT.

JOE DOES HAVE A HISTORY OF

CELLULITES, WHERE THERE IS A

LOT OF REDNESS, AND

SOMETIMES HOT TO THE TOUCH.

AND THE SYMPTOMS SEEMED

LIKE THEY KEPT GETTING

WORSE.

I FELT LIKE THERE WAS A BAND

AROUND MY FOOTING, CUTTING

OFF THE CIRCULATION.

I WENT INTO THE KITCHEN,

AND I WAS PRAYING, WHAT

SHOULD WE DO?

WHICH PHYSICIAN SHOULD WE GO

TO?

AND I TURNED ON "THE 700

CLUB," WHICH IS KIND OF MY

PRACTICE WHEN I COME IN AND

FIX SUPPER, AND PAT

ROBERTSON WAS ON AND PRAYING

FOR PEOPLE.

Pat: SOMEBODY HAS GOT A

SWOLLEN FOOT.

PERHAPS IT IS AN INFECTION

IN YOUR FOOT OR TOE, BUT IT

IS LIKE A BANDAGE WRAPPED

AROUND IT, AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU IN JESUS' NAME.

SHE DESCRIBED THE

SYMPTOMS SO ACCURATELY, AND

MY WIFE YELLED FROM THE

KITCHEN, CLAIM THAT.

AND I SAID, I AM, BABY.

THE NEXT MORNING, THE

SWELLING WENT DOWN.

THE PAIN WAS GONE.

THE FEVER HAD NOT COME BACK,

AND THE REDNESS STARTED TO

GO AWAY.

IT TOOK ABOUT TWO OR THREE

DAYS TO HAPPEN.

BUT WHEN PAT GAVE THAT

SPECIAL WORD, IT STARTED THE

HEALING PROCESS.

I'M SO THANKFUL FOR THAT.

GOD CHANGED THE

SITUATION.

GOD IS ALL POWERFUL.

GOD IS ALL CARING.

GOD MEETS OUR NEEDS, AND HE

INTERVENES.

I CAN DO THE THINGS WHAT

A NORMAL PERSON CAN DO NOW.

WHEREAS BEFORE, IT WAS VERY

DIFFICULT, VERY PAINFUL.

I HAD TO MOST OF THE TIME

KEEP MY FEET UP.

IT IS JUST A LITTLE

REAFFIRMATION THAT HE LOVES

US AND HE WANTS TO TAKE CARE

OF US.

OF COURSE, IF GOD DID IT

FOR ME, HE IS NO RESPECTER

OF PERSONS.

HE'LL BE ABLE TO DO IT FOR

OTHERS, ALSO.

Pat: WE'RE GOT ONE MORE

REAL QUICK AND THEN WE WANT

TO PRAY FOR YOU.

Terry: ANITA IN

CALIFORNIA BECAME VERY ILL

AND NOT ABLE TO KEEP FOOD

DOWN, EVENTUALLY LOST

40 POUNDS.

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH AN

INFECTION IN HER COLON.

ONE DAY WHILE SHE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM, SHE

HEARD YOU, PAT, SAY YOU HAVE

TERRIBLE NAUSEA, AND GOD HAS

JUST HEALED YOU.

SHE SAYS SHE FELT A TINGLING

THROUGHOUT HER BODY AND SHE

BEGAN SOBBING, AND FROM THAT

POINT ON, SHE WAS

COMPLETELYLY HEALED.

Pat: FOLKS, I DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD DOES,

ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT HE

DOES IT.

ALL I CAN SAY HE IS

ALMIGHTY.

AND HE LIVES WITH US,

THROUGH US, AND IN US.

AND TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN TOGETHER FOR YOU.

HE IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

HE LOVES YOU, AND YOU'RE

SPECIAL TO HIM.

WOULD YOU JOIN WITH US IN

PRAYER.

TERRY AND I ARE JOINING

HANDS.

FATHER, I PRAY WITH MY DEAR

SISTER, AND I ASK, LORD, IN

THE NAME OF JESUS THAT YOU

MAY REACH OUT AND BRING

HEALING IN PEOPLE'S LIVES.

SOMEBODY HAS A TUMOR IN YOUR

THROAT, AND GOD IS HEALING

THAT.

THERE IS SOMETHING THAT IS

GOING TO BREAK INSIDE, AND

YOU'LL FEEL A FLUID GOING

DOWN, AND GOD HAS SET YOU

FREE.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE

WITH AN IMPACTED WISDOM

TOOTH, IT IS I INFECTED AND

VERY, VERY SORE, AND GOD IS

HEALING THAT FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

Pat: LORD, FOR OTHERS

IN THIS AUDIENCE WHO ARE

TROUBLED, THEIR MINDS ARE

TROUBLED, AND THEY'RE

SAYING, ARE YOU REAL?

LORD, REVEAL YOURSELF TO

THEM.

SHOW FORTH YOUR POWER,

LORD.

SHOW YOUR MIGHTY POWER.

AND MAY ALL MEN THROUGHOUT

THIS EARTH GIVE YOU PRAISE

AND GLORY.

WE HONOR YOU, LORD.

WE WORSHIP YOU, LORD.

AND WE SAY, LORD, TOUCH

PEOPLE NOW AS THEY PRAY.

HEAR THE PRAYER OF YOUR

SAINTS IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

PLEASE LET US HEAR FROM

YOU.

WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOUR

RESPONSE.

WE'RE JUST DELIGHTED TO HEAR

FROM YOU.

HERE IS IS SOMETHING THAT

CAME IN FROM DELUTH,

MINNESOTA.

SOMEBODY HAD A CONCUSSION.

SHE SLIPPED ON A PATCH OF

ICE.

AND TERRY GAVE A WORD, YOU

HAVE A SITUATION WITH YOUR

HEAD, YOU HAVE FORGETFULNESS

AND YOU FEEL A BIT FOGGY,

AND SHE WAS HEALED AND SHE

IS THRILLED.

ONE MORE INSTANCE WHERE GOD

TOUCHES PEOPLE.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM ROMANS 5: "THE

LOVE OF GOD HAS BEEN POURED

OUT IN OUR HEARTS, BY THE

HOLY SPIRIT HE WAS GIVEN TO

US."

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
