I'M HERE TO GIVE YOU A

SECOND CHANCE TO BECOME A

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

FOR SPOT "SPORTS

ILLUSTRATED".

Lee: CURT WARNER TALKS

ABOUT HIS NEW REALITY

SERIES.

IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO BE

WHAT YOU WANT TO BE.

Lee: PLUS, A HUSBAND

STARTS DOWN A SLIPPERY SLOPE

AND WINDS UP WITH A DEAD

WIFE.

HERE EYES WERE WIDE OPEN,

AND SHE DIDN'T RESPOND TO

ME.

*

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

ONCE AGAIN, A BIG WINTER

STORM IS HITTING THE UPPER

MIDWEST, AND IT IS BRINGING

EXTREMELY COLD TEMPERATURES

WITH IT.

Terry: SO WHY DOES THIS

YEAR'S WINTER SEEM SO LONG

IF WE'RE FACING GLOBAL

WARMING?

THE ANSWER IS SCIENCE SHOWS

THAT THE GLOBE HASN'T BEEN

WARMING IN RECENT YEARS.

GARY LANE HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE CALENDAR

MAY SAY IT IS SPRING, BUT A

MAJOR WINTER-LIKE SNOWSTORM

IS WREAKING HAVOC ON THE

LIVES OF AMERICANS FROM THE

ROCKIES TO THE UPPER

PLAINS.

13 STATES ARE EITHER UNDER A

STORM-WATCH OR WARNING.

NINE INCHES OF SNOW FELL ON

DENVER, WHILE NEBRASKA AND

THE DAKOTAS EXPECTED AS MUCH

AS TWO FEET.

POWERFUL WINDS RIPPED THE

ROOF OFF THIS

HARLEY-DAVIDSON STORE, AND

DERAILED A TRAIN OFF ITS

TRACKS IN NEBRASKA.

THICK ICE WAS THE PROBLEM IN

SIOUX FALLS.

I THOUGHT I HEARD A VERY

LARGE THUNDER CLAP, AND I

THOUGHT I BETTER GO OUT

THERE AND SEE WHAT WAS GOING

ON.

MY REACTION WAS, "OH, MY

GOSH."

Reporter: AND THE TREE

THAT CRASHED INTO THE HOUSE,

ALSO DAMAGED THEIR CAR.

WHILE THEY CLEAN UP, SOME

SCIENTISTS ARE WONDERING

WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE

WEATHER?

ARE WE REALLY EXPERIENCING

GLOBAL WARMING?

WHILE GREENHOUSE GASES HAVE

SOARED, THE AIR TEMPERATURES

IN THE AIR'S SURFACE HAVE

NOT.

100BILLION TONS OF CARBON

WERE ADDED TO THE ATMOSPHERE

DURING THE PERIOD OF 2000 TO

2010.

THAT'S ONE FOURTH OF ALL

MAN-CREATED CO2s PUT THERE

SINCE 1970.

AND THE MEAN TEMPERATURE HAS

REMAINED FLAT.

WHILE SOME FEAR IT ISN'T AS

BAD AG PREVIOUSLY FEARED,

THE ECONOMIST MAGAZINE STILL

SAYS, GLOBAL WARMING IS

HAPPENING, BUT SKEPTICS

REMAIN UNCONVINCED,

INCLUDING SOME OF THE

AMERICANS WHO ARE DIGGING

OUT FROM THIS WEEK'S

SNOWSTORM.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: I DON'T KNOW IF

I'M A EXCEP SKEPTIC ABOUT

CLIMATE CHANGE BECAUSE THE

WEATHER IS WHACKY OVER THE

PAST FEW YEARS WAY MAJOR

TYPHOONS AND HURRICANES THAT

DON'T SEEM TO STOP.

BUT NOW WE'RE GETTING A

WHOLE SERIES OF WINTER

STORMS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE

OF APRIL.

IF IT IS NOT SOME KIND OF

STRANGE THING, TERRY, DO YOU

HAVE AN EXPLANATION FOR IT?

Terry: I DON'T.

I'M NOT A SCIENTIST, AND I

DON'T UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE

ARGUMENTS ON THE WHOLE

GLOBAL WARMING THING.

PEOPLE SEEM TO LATCH ON TO

THAT WITHOUT HAVING DONE

MUCH RESEARCH ON IT.

IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO

GET BOTH SIDES IN AN

EVERYDAY MAN'S LANGUAGE.

WHY SOME SAY YES, AND WHY

SOME SAY NO.

Gordon: IN A CALM

REASONED DEBATE.

AS OPPOSED TO --

Terry: POLITICAL NAME

CALLING.

Gordon: WE'LL SEE IF

ALTERNATIVE ENERGY IS THE

ANSWER, I'M ALL FOR IT.

THERE IS A REMARKABLE STORY

OF FORGIVENESS.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY.

Lee: FIVE YEARS AGO, A

YOUNG ISRAELI BOY ALMOST

DIED IN A SERIES OF ATTACKS

THAT ATTRACTED WORLDWIDE

SENTENCE.

ON TUESDAY, AN ISRAELI COURT

SENTENCED AMERICAN-BORN JACK

TITLE FOR HIS ROLE IN THOSE

ATTACKS.

BUT AN AMAZING FART O PART

OF THE STORY DEALS WITH THE

FORGIVENESS OF HIS PARENTS.

Reporter: THE JUDGE

RESPONDED WITH TWO LIFE

SENTENCES AND TW FOR TWO

MURDER CASES.

WE HOPE THIS HEAVY

PUNISHMENT WILL BE A

DETERRENT, FOR ANYBODY WHO

MIGHT THINK OF DOING TERROR

ACTIVITIES.

Reporter: IT INCLUDED

KILLING TWO ARABS, AND

SENDING A BOMB TO THE

MESSIANIC PASTORS, DAVID AND

LEA.

IT NEARLY KILLED 15-YEAR-OLD

AMI ORTIZ.

MIRACULOUSLY, HE SURVIVED.

DURING SENTENCING HIS SAID

HIS HOLY WORK HAD BECOME

DUST UNDER HIS FEET, AND

THAT HIS ACTIONS

CONTRADICTED THE ACTIONS OF

THE JEWISH STATE.

PART OF HIS MISSION INCLUDED

ERADICATING JEWS FROM

ISRAEL.

IRONICALLY, HIS MESSAGE

SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE

COUNTRY.

THE LORD, IN HIS MERCY,

HAS CHOSEN US TO SUFFER FOR

HIS NAME.

HIS NAME SHOULD BE LIFTED

UP, BECAUSE THAT'S THE ONLY

THING WE CAN TAKE WITH US.

ONLY JESUS.

Reporter: LEA ORTIZ

SAYS FROM THE VERY

BEGINNING, GOD TOLD HER TO

PRAY FOR THE MAN WHO TRIED

TO KILL HER SON.

HE GAVE ME THE LOVE OF

GOD.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHO JACK WAS,

BUT HE TOLD ME TO PRAY FOR

THE PERSON WHO DID THIS.

Reporter: HAVE YOU AND

DAVID AND THE FAMILY

FORGIVEN JACK?

ALL OF US HAVE FROM THE

BEGINNING.

OTHERWISE WE WOULD HAVE BEEN

PRISONERS ALONG WITH HIM.

WE WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE

TO RECEIVE ANY KIND OF

HEALING IN OUR LIVES.

Reporter: AND YET THEY

CREDIT THE PRAYERS OF PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD.

WITHOUT THE PRAYERS, WE

WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DO IT.

I HAVE NEVER KNOWN THE

LORD AS EMMANUEL AS I HAVE

THROUGH THIS SITUATION.

HE HAS STAYED SO CLOSE TO

US.

WE HAVE EXPERIENCED THE BODY

OF CHRIST AROUND THE WORLD

IN A WAY THAT IS

UNBELIEVABLE.

Reporter: DAVID AND LEA

ORTIZ EXPRESS RELIEF AT THE

VERDICT.

THAT JACK CANNOT HARM OTHER

FAMILIES.

AND THEY HOPE ONE DAY TO

VISIT HIM IN PRISON.

Lee: VIRGINIA

CONGRESSMAN JACK WOLF IS

CALLING FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA

TO SPEAK UP FOR EGYPT'S

PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS.

HE SAYS THE PRESIDENT SHOULD

BE FORCEFUL OF DENOUNCING

ATTACKS ON COPTIC CHRISTIANS

LAST WEEKEND.

AN ANGRY MOB THREW FIREBOMBS

ON CHRISTIANS, LEAVING TO

CHRISTIANS DEAD.

WOLF SAYS ATTACKS ON

CHRISTIANS WILL CONTINUE

THERE UNLESS MR. OBAMA

SPEAKS OUT.

HE SAYS CHRISTIANS IN EGYPT

ARE LIVING IN FEAR, AND MANY

ARE SIMPLY FLEEING THE

COUNTRY.

THEY HAVE ACCUSED MORSI OF

NEGLIGENCE.

THE PRESIDENT SUBMITS HIS

BUDGET TODAY MORE THAN TWO

MONTHS LATE.

ALREADY SOME LAWMAKERS ARE

CRITICIZING IT BECAUSE IT

CALLS FOR SPENDING EVEN MORE

TAXPAYERS' DOLLARS.

WHEN A NEW REPORT SHOWS ONCE

AGAIN HOW MUCH IS ALREADY

BEING WASTED.

JENNIFER WISHON EXPLAINS.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S POLITICAL ALLIES

AND ENEMIES NOW HAVE

SOMETHING IN COMMON: THEY'RE

NOT FANS OF HIS 2014

BUDGET.

WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS SAY IT

IS PROOF OF MR. OBAMA'S

WILLINGNESS TO COMPROMISE

WITH CONGRESS.

WE NEED TO GROW THE

ECONOMY AND CREATE JOBS.

THAT'S THE NUMBER ONE

OBJECTIVE.

Reporter: TO GET THAT

DONE, THE PRESIDENT'S

SPENDING PLAN PUSHES MONEY

INTO PROJECTS LIKE BUILDING

ROADS AND BRIDGES,

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH, AND

EDUCATION.

THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS THE

BUDGET ALSO CUTS THE DEFICIT

BY NEARLY $2 TRILLION OVER

THE NEXT 10 YEARS.

THE PRESIDENT'S BUDGET

WILL REPLACE THE SEQUESTER.

WHICH WAS DESIGNED TO BE BAD

POLICY FOR EVERYONE.

WITH NOT JUST $1.2 TRILLION

IN DEFICIT REDUCTION, BUT $

$1.8 TRILLION IN DEFICIT

DIRECTION.

Reporter: CONSERVATIVES

ARE SKEPTICAL OF THAT CLAIM,

BUT IN A NOD TO REPUBLICANS,

THE ADMINISTRATION ALSO SAYS

THE BUDGET INCLUDES CUTS TO

ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS LIKE

SOCIAL SECURITY AND

MEDICARE.

AND IT ALSO INCLUDES TAX

HIKES.

THERE WILL BE REVENUE

ACHIEVED THROUGH TAX REFORM,

CLOSING OF LOOPHOLES, AND

CAPPING OF DEDUCTIONS THAT

GO TO THE WELL-OFF AND

WELL-CONNECTED.

Reporter:

WELL-CONNECTED OR NOT, FOR

SOME LAWMAKERS IT IS HARD TO

TAKE ANY SPENDING PLAN, AND

CERTAINLY TAX INCREASES,

SERIOUSLY, WHEN SO MANY TAX

DOLLARS, TENS OF BILLIONS OF

THEM, ARE BEING WASTED ON

BUREAUCRATIC

INEFFICIENCIES.

FOR EXAMPLE, ON MEDICAID

ALONE, THE GOVERNMENT WASTES

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS A YEAR

BY SIMPLY PAYING TOO MUCH

FOR SERVICES. AND SINCE

2002, THE DEPARTMENT OF

DEFENSE HAS GONE FROM HAVING

TWO CAMOUFLAGE UNIFORMS TO

SEVEN.

THAT COSTS TENS OF MILLIONS

MORE, AND MAKES IT MORE

DIFFICULT FOR SERVICE

MEMBERS TO IDENTIFY ONE

ANOTHER IN COMBAT.

IT IS ONE OF DOZENS OF

RECOMMENDATIONS OFFERED BY

THE GOVERNMENT

ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE TO CUT

BACK GOVERNMENT WASTE.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE, THE OFFICE

FOUND THAT LAST YEAR THERE

WERE 700 GOVERNMENT

INITIATIVES TO DO THE SAME

THING, PROMOTE RENEWABLE

ENERGY.

THE HARD-WORKING AMERICAN

TAXPAYERS HAVE HARD ENOUGH

TIME PAYING POR SOMETHING

ONCE.

BUT PAYING FOR IT TWICE IS

REALLY A PROBLEM.

Reporter: BUT UNTIL

CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT

ACT TO CUT THAT WASTE,

TAXPAYERS WILL KEEP RIGHT ON

PAYING FOR IT.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Lee: GORDON, BACK TO

YOU.

Gordon: ONCE AGAIN, A

CALL TO PRAY, AND

SPECIFICALLY PRAY FOR OUR

PRESIDENT.

PRAY FOR OUR LEADERS IN THE

SENATE, LEADERS IN CONGRESS,

THAT THEY WOULD HAVE WISDOM

AND THAT WOULD HAVE

DISCERNMENT, AND THEY WOULD

KNOW HOW TO SOLVE THE MAJOR

PROBLEMS THAT ARE FACING

THIS NATION, WHETHER IT IS

THE ECONOMY, UNEMPLOYMENT,

RECORD SPENDING, RECORD

DEFICITS.

WE NEED WISDOM FOR PRACTICAL

SOLUTIONS.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

NFL LEGEND CURT WARNER TALKS

ABOUT THE MOTIVATION BEHIND

HIS NEW REALITY SERIES.

EVERYBODY NEEDS SOMEONE

TO STEP IN AND GIVE THEM A

CHANCE TO CHASE THEIR DREAM,

OR IN A LOT OF CASES, A

SECOND CHANCE BECAUSE LIFE

HAS TAKEN THEM IN A

DIFFERENT DIRECTION.

Terry: EXPERIENCE "THE

MOMENT" WITH THE HOST WHO

HAS HIS OWN CINDERELLA STORY

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Gordon: COUR CURT

WARNER KNOWS FIRSTHAND WHAT

IT IS LIKE TO GET A SECOND

CHANCE. HIS CINDERELLA

STORY OF RISING FROM GROCERY

CLERK TO NFL SUPERSTAR HAS

MADE HIM A LEGEND.

AND NOW HE IS INVOLVED IN

MAKING OTHER DREAMS COME

TRUE.

WENDY GRIFFITH TALKED TO HIM

ABOUT HIS NEW REALITY TV

SHOW CALLED "THE MOMENT."

EVERYBODY HAS A DREAM.

I'M CURT WARNER.

NICE TO MEET YOU.

VERY NICE TO MEET YOU.

I'M HERE TO GIVE YOU A

SECOND CHANCE.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU AN

OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE OUT YOUR

DREAM.

HOW DOES THAT SOUND?

IT SOUNDS UNBELIEVABLE.

Wendy: CURT WARNER IS

TAKING NINE HOPEFULS ON THE

ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME.

THE JOURNEY INVOLVES GIVING

EACH CONTENDER A SECOND

CHANCE TO FULFILL THEIR

BIGGEST DREAM.

I'M HERE TO GIVE YOU A

SECOND CHANCE TO BECOME A

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

FOR "SPORTS ILLUSTRATED."

YOU'RE NOT GETTING IT.

IT'S "SPORTS ILLUSTRATED."

CLEARLY I HAVE WORK TO

DO.

Wendy: THE DREAMS ARE

DIVERSE AS THE PEOPLE.

FROM A PROFESSIONAL SPORTS

PHOTOGRAPHER TO A SYMPHONY

CONDUCTOR, TO A RACE CAR

DRIVER.

NINE PEOPLE WILL BE PUT TO

THE TEST TO SEE IF THEY HAVE

WHAT IT TAKES, AND IT WON'T

BE EASY.

I'M GOING TO TOUGHEN UP

AND DO IT.

Wendy: CURT WARNER

KNOWS ALL ABOUT SECOND

CHANCES.

HE FAMOUSLY WENT FROM

STOCKING GROCERY STORE

SHELVES IN IOWA TO LEADING

THE ST. LOUIS RAMS TO A

SUPER BOWL VICTORY JUST A

FEW SHORT YEARS LATER.

IN THE MID-'90s, CURT WENT

TO CAMP WITH THE GREENBAY

PACKERS, CONFIDENT HIS NFL

CAREER WAS ABOUT TO TAKE

OFF.

BUT JUST FIVE WEEKS LATER,

HE WAS CUT.

HE TRIED OTHER TEAMS, AND

EVEN OTHER LEAGUES.

BASICALLY EVERYBODY SAID

WE'RE NOT INTERESTED.

I DIDN'T WANT TO GIVE UP ON

MY DREAM, BUT I KNEW I HAD

TO TAKE A JOB AND PAY SOME

BILLS.

SO I TOOK A JOB STOCKING

SHELVES AT A GROCERY STORE.

SO I'M WORKING ALL NIGHT

LONG.

WHEN I WOULD GET OFF, I

MIGHT GET A COUPLE OF HOURS

OF SLEEP, GO WORK OUT, AND

MAKE SURE I WAS STILL

CHASING MY DREAM.

AND THEN MY FUTURE WIFE,

BRENDA, WHO HAD TWO KIDS, I

WOULD HELP TAKE CARE OF

THOSE KIDS WHILE SHE WENT TO

NURSING SCHOOL.

Reporter: WHILE MAKING

JUST $5.5 AN HOUR IN THAT

GROCERY STORE, HE GOT THE

OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY ARENA

FOOTBALL IN IOWA.

I DID THAT FOR THREE

YEARS.

THE WHOLE TIME TRYING TO

FIND A WAY, AND TRYING TO

OPEN A DOOR TO GET BACK INTO

THE NFL.

ALTHOUGH I HAD THE DREAM, IT

WAS ONE OF THOSE THINGS

WHERE EVERYBODY AROUND ME

WAS SAYING, OKAY, AT SOME

POINT YOU HAVE TO GIVE THIS

UP.

AT SOME POINT YOU HAVE TO

REALIZE THIS ISN'T GOING TO

HAPPEN.

THEY DON'T GIVE 27-YEAR-OLD

INDIVIDUALS A CHANCE TO PLAY

AND THE NFL.

IT JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN,

ESPECIALLY AT THE

QUARTERBACK POSITION.

WHAT A REMARKABLE COME

BACK FOR CURT WARNER.

Reporter: BUT

APPARENTLY THE COACH FOR THE

ST. LOUIS RAMS DIDN'T AGREE

AND GAVE HIM A SECOND CHANCE

OF PLAYING IN THE NFL.

HE SAID THERE WAS

SOMETHING DIFFERENT ABOUT ME

HE WANTED TO GIVE ME A

CHANCE.

HERE I AM, 27 YEARS OLD, AND

I'M A ROOKIE IN THE NATIONAL

FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

AND THE REST, AS THEY SAY,

IS HISTORY.

Reporter: HE WOULD GO

ON TO BE ONE OF THE BEST

UNDRAFTED PLAYERS OF ALL

TIME.

FOLLOWING A 12-YEAR CAREER

REGARDED AS ONE OF THE

GREATEST NFL STORIES IN

HISTORY.

WHEN YOU'RE GOING THROUGH

IT, YOU'RE GOING, WHY CAN'T

I BE THE NUMBER ONE DRAFT

PICK.

WHY CAN'T EVERYTHING PLAYED

OUT THE WAY I ALWAYS HOPED

IT WOULD.

IT WOULD, BUT AFTER THINGS

PLAYED OUT, AND I SEE HOW

GOD USED THIS STORY, I WON'T

SAY A THING.

Reporter: WARNER SAYS

THE FACT HE WAS BLESSED TO

GET A SECOND CHANCE MAKES

HIM THE PERFECT HOST FOR

"THE MOMENT."

EVERYBODY NEEDS SOMEONE

TO STEP IN AND GIVE THEM A

CHANCE TO CHASE THEIR DREAM,

OR, IN A LOT OF CASES, A

SECOND CHANCE BECAUSE LIFE

HAS TAKEN THEM IN A

DIFFERENT DIRECTION.

IT IS LETTING PEOPLE KNOW

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE UP.

IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO BE

WHAT YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO

BE.

I'M A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF

THAT.

Reporter: HE SAYS THE

WHOLE THEME OF SECOND

CHANCES IS SOMETHING THOSE

OF US WHO SERVE A GOD OF

SECOND CHANCES CAN IDENTIFY

WITH.

WHEN I PICK UP THE

BIBLE.

THAT'S EVERYBODY'S STORY IN

THE BIBLE.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS ALL

ABOUT.

IT IS GOD TAKING PEOPLE THAT

EVERYBODY SAYS NO WAY, CAN'T

HAPPEN, NO CHANCE, AND DOING

AMAZING THINGS WITH THEM.

I'VE GOT YOUR BACK.

YOU'VE GOT THIS.

THANK YOU.

Reporter: AND THAT'S

THE HOPE OF EACH PERSON

FEATURED IN "THE MOMENT."

THEY'LL HAVE A CHANCE TO

TRAIN WITH AN EXPERT MENTOR

IN THEIR DREAM CAREER,

PREPARE FOR AN INTERVIEW,

AND HOPEFULLY LAND THE JOB

OF A LIFETIME.

CURT, WHAT DO YOU HOPE

PEOPLE WILL TAKE AWAY FROM

"THE MOMENT?"

I HOPE AND PRAY THAT

EVERYBODY WILL TAKE AWAY IS

THAT KNOCK ON THE DOOR.

AND NO LONGER ARE THEY GOING

TO ALLOW THINGS TO HOLD THEM

BACK.

AND THEY'LL TRULY CHASE

AFTER WHATEVER IT IS THEY

WANT IN LIFE.

Reporter: WENDY

GRIFFITH, CBN NEWS,

PHOENIX.

Gordon: I HOPE YOU GET

ENCOURAGED BY THIS SHOW.

THAT GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU

THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.

GOD WANTS YOU TO SUCCEED.

YOU CAN COUNT ON THAT.

HE WANTS TO GIVE YOU A HOPE

AND A FUTURE.

AND, BOY, IS HE EVER THE GOD

OF SECOND CHANCES.

SO REALIZE THAT, AND GET THE

HOPE THAT COMES FROM

UNDERSTANDING THAT HE IS FOR

YOU.

IF GOD IS IS FOR YOU, WHO

CAN BE AGAINST YOU?

AND DON'T GIVE UP.

DON'T GIVE UP ON YOURSELF.

YOU CAN WATCH "THE MOMENT"

ON THE U.S.A. NETWORK ON

THURSDAY, 10 P.M.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE A SHOT AT

MAKING YOUR DREAM COME TRUE

AS A CONTENDER ON THAT SHOW,

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS FIND

OUT MORE ON CBNNEWS.COM.

Terry: GREAT TO HAVE A

POSITIVE, UPLIFTING SHOW

COMING TO TELEVISION.

I'M WATCHING.

COMING UP, A COUPLE ON

VACATION WHO MADE A FATAL

CHOICE.

WE HAD HAD ONE MARGARITA,

AND THEN THAT LED TO A

SECOND MARGARITA, AND THEN A

THIRD, AND THEN WE WERE

DOING TEQUILA SHOTS.

TWO HOURS LATER, WE WERE

SITTING IN A HOTEL ROOM

DOING COCAINE.

Terry: SEE WHAT HAPPENS

NEXT, AFTER THIS.

Gordon: GETTING AWAY

FROM IT ALL CAN BE A GREAT

WAY TO RELAX, RECONNECT.

THAT'S WHAT CHIP LAPOLE AND

HIS WIFE HAD IN MIND WHEN

THEY TRAVELLED TO MEXICO.

BUT THIS COUPLE LET DOWN

THEIR GUARD IN CANCUN, AND

THEN MADE A VERY DEADLY

CHOICE.

Reporter: CHIP LAPOLE

WAS A SUCCESSFUL ENGINEER,

BUT WHAT DROVE HIM WAS NOT

THE IDEA OF MAKING BETTER

AUTOMOTIVE PARTS, IT WAS

COCAINEMEN COCAINE.

FOR YEARS HE HID HIS DRUG

PROBLEM.

I WOULD BRING IT TO WORK

AND ACTUALLY DO DRUGS WHILE

I WAS AT WORK.

IT WAS SO I COULD STAY AWAKE

AND I COULD STAY ALERT.

IT GOT TO THE POINT WHERE I

COULDN'T FUNCTION WELL

WITHOUT IT.

Reporter: CHIP'S FATHER

LEFT THE FAMILY WHEN CHIP

WAS ONLY A CHILD.

AND I HAD ACTUALLY HATRED

IN MY MIND AND IN MY HEART

FOR HIM.

AND WHEN I WOULD GET HIGH ON

THE MARIJUANA OR GET LOADED

ON ALCOHOL AND ULTIMATELY ON

COCAINE, IT WOULD TAKE AWAY

THE PAIN FROM THAT EARLY

CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCE.

Reporter: IN COLLEGE,

CHIP'S LIFE WAS CENTERED

AROUND PARTIES, SEX, AND

GETTING HIGH.

I WAS ALWAYS THE GUY YOU

COULD SEE OUT AT THE CLUBS

THAT HAD A COUPLE HUNDRED

BUCKS IN HIS POCKET AND A

COUPLE GRAMS OF COCAINE IN

HIS POCKET.

Reporter: BY THE TIME

CHIP GOT OUT OF SCHOOL AND

STARTED WORKING, HE WAS A

FUNCTIONAL ADDICT.

ONE NIGHT AT A BAR, HE MET

TONETE.

SEEKING SOMETHING MORE

THAN THE ONE-NIGHT-STAND

RELATIONSHIPS I HAD HAD FOR

YEARS, I STARTED TO CARE FOR

HER SO MUCH, I FELT LIKE I

WANTED TO MARRY HER AND DO

THE RIGHT THING.

Reporter: CHIP ASKED

HER TO MARRY HIM.

HE THOUGHT ABOUT LEAVING HIS

PARTY LIFESTYLE TO BECOME A

RESPONSIBLE HUSBAND.

INSTEAD, HE GOT TONETE

HOOKED ON COCAINE.

I FELT ALMOST AN

ARTIFICIAL PARTNERSHIP,

LIKE, NOW I'M SHARING

EVERYTHING WITH HER.

IN REALITY, THAT'S WHAT

STARTED THE DEMISE OF OUR

RELATIONSHIP AND ULTIMATELY

HER LIFE.

Reporter: TONETE WANTED

TO HAVE THE MARRIAGE IN HER

CHURCH, BUT THE PASTOR

INSISTED THEY V HAVE TO GO

THROUGH MARRIAGE

COUNSELLINGMENT.

> COUNSELLING.

I SAID, PASTOR, I DON'T

CARE AS MUCH ABOUT MARRIAGE

COUNSELLING AS GETTING MY

LIFE STRAIGHT.

I WAS SAYING I WANT TO KNOW

THE LORD.

RESCUE ME.

THE VERY NEXT DAY I WENT TO

MEET WITH HIM, OCTOBER 16,

1997, AT ABOUT 6:00.

AND AT 6:22 P.M. I GAVE MY

LIFE TO THE LORD.

Reporter: CHIP AND

TONETE MARRIED.

THEY BOTH STOPPED USING

COCAINE AND DRINKING

ALCOHOL.

ALL WAS WELL UNTIL THREE

YEARS LATER WHEN THEY TOOK A

TRIP TO CANCUN, ME MEXICO.

I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, THIS

WOULDN'T BE A BIG DEAL.

WE CAN HAVE ONE DRINK.

WE HAD ONE MARGARITA AND

THAT LED TO A SECOND

MARGARITA AND THEN A THIRD,

AND THEN WE WERE DOING

TEQUILA SHOTS.

AND SHE LOOKED AT ME AND

SAID A COUPLE LINES OF

COCAINE WOULD BE GOOD RIGHT

NOW.

AND TWO HOURS LATER, WE WERE

SITTING IN A HOTEL LOOM

DOING COCAINE.

Reporter: THAT DECISION

OPENED A DOOR THAT SHOULD

HAVE STAYED CLOSED.

BECAUSE WHEN THEY GOT HOME,

THEY WENT BACK TO USING

COCAINE.

HERE I AM TRYING TO HOLD

MY JOB DOWN, AND SOMETIMES

WITHOUT ANY SLEEP.

I REALIZED I WAS ON A

SELF-DESTRUCT PATH.

Reporter: ONE DAY AFTER

AN ARGUMENT, CHIP STORMED

OUT OF THE HOUSE AND CHECKED

INTO A MOTEL.

I TOLD HER I JUST

COULDN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE,

AND SHE WAS BEGGING ME TO

COME HOME.

AND I SAID, NO, I CAN'T COME

HOME.

Reporter: CHIP TOOK A

COUPLE OF DAYS TO COOL OFF

AND THEN WENT HOME.

I WALKED THROUGH THE

HOUSE AND I YELLED, TONETE?

TENTE?

AND I STARTED WALKING UP THE

STAIRS AND THERE WAS STUFF

WRITTEN ON THE MIRRORS WITH

LIPSTICK.

I WENT DOWNSTAIRS AND SAID,

I'VE GOT TO SEE IF HER CAR

IS THERE.

I OPENED UP THE GARAGE DOOR

AND HER CAR WAS THERE.

AND THE GARAGE SMELLED REAL

SMOKY, AND I LOOKED IN THE

CAR, AND I COULD SEE HER

SLUMPED OVER IN THE CAR.

I WAS YELLING, TONETE,

TONETE, AND HER EYES WERE

WIDE OPEN, AND SHE DIDN'T

RESPOND TO ME.

Reporter: AFTER HIS

WIFE'S SUICIDE, CHIP WAS

RACKED WITH GUILT.

HIS DRUG ADDICTION CONSUMED

HIM.

EVENTUALLY HE LOST

EVERYTHING.

I STARTED STAYING AT

HOMELESS SHELTERS.

I LITERALLY, WHEN THE MONEY

RAN OUT, ENDED UP WALKING

THE STREETS HOMELESS AND

ADDICTED.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

HE STRUGGLED FOR YEARS WITH

HIS COCAINE HABIT, CHIP

NEVER FELT ABANDONED BY

GOD.

I BELIEVED THAT THE LORD

LOVED ME.

I NEVER BLAMED HIM FOR MY

CIRCUMSTANCES.

I JUST KEPT CRYING OUT TO

HIM.

NUMBER ONE, THAT I WANTED TO

BE BE FREE.

Reporter: TIME AFTER

TIME CHIP WENT THROUGH

CYCLES OF GETTING ON HIS

FEET AND THEN FALLING BACK

INTO HIS OLD HABIT.

BUT ONE DAY THE CYCLE WAS

BROKEN.

I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE

ROAD, AND I WENT TO PUT THE

CRACK COCAINE INTO MY PIPE,

AND TO LIFT IT TO MY MOUTH

WITH A LIGHTER, AND I LOOKED

IN THE REAR-VIEW MIRROR, AND

I HEARD THIS AS CLEAR AS A

BELL, AS CLEAR AS I'M

SPEAKING TO YOU, YOU DON'T

NEED THAT.

AND I TOOK THAT PIPE AND

THREW IT OUT THE WINDOW.

AND I TOOK THE COCAINE AND

THROUG THREW IT OUT THE

WINDOW.

Reporter: THAT DAY CHIP

WAS SET FREE FROM A 30-YEAR

ADDICTION.

IT FELT LIKE I CAME

HOME -- LIKE I CAME HOME.

LIKE I WAS IN THIS PLACE AND

I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE I WAS,

BUT NOW I'M HOME.

AND THAT MY LIFE WAS GOING

TO COUNT FOR SOMETHING.

I KNEW IT WAS.

I KNEW THAT GOD WOULD USE

IT.

AND I KNEW I WAS FREE.

Reporter: TODAY CHIP

HELPS RECOVERING DRUG

ADDICTS STAY FREE THROUGH

THE POWER OF GOD'S LOVE.

WHEN I LOOK BACK AT MY

LIFE, I TRULY BELIEVE THAT

MY LIFE IS THE STORY OF THE

PRODIGAL SON.

THAT THE LORD BLESSED HIM

WITH SO MUCH, AND HE WENT

OUT AND HE SQUANDERED IT.

AND YET BECAUSE OF GOD'S

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND

FATHERLY NATURE, HIS FATHER

EMBRACES HIM AND LOVES HIM

BACK TO LIFE.

THAT'S MY DADDY.

THAT'S MY FATHER.

Gordon: AND THAT'S YOUR

DADDY, TOO.

REALIZE THAT YOU'RE A CHILD

OF GOD.

THAT HE CREATED YOU, AND HE

CREATED YOU UNIQUELY, FOR

ONE THING.

TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH

HIM.

AND THIS IS GOD'S PLAN.

GOD'S PLAN WAS FOR US TO BE

IN A GARDEN, AND HE WOULD

COME DOWN IN THE COOL OF THE

EVENING AND TALK TO US, FIND

OUT WHAT WE HAD DONE THAT

DAY.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTED.

HE WANTED FACE TOFAC FACE

CONVERSATION.

AND WE'RE THE ONES WHO

MESSED IT UP.

WE'RE THE ONES THAT SAID,

I'LL GO OFF AND I'LL TASTE

THAT FORBIDDEN FRUIT, NOT

KNOWING THAT IT WOULD LEAD

TO A LOT OF HEARTACHE, A LOT

OF WASTED MONEY, AND A LOT

OF WASTED LIFE.

NOW MAYBE YOU'RE LIKE CHIP,

YOU'VE SEEN IT ALL.

YOU'VE DONE IT ALL.

AND YOU'RE WONDERING, IS

THERE ANY HOPE FOR ME?

WELL, JUST LIKE CHIP, YOU

CAN COME HOME.

YOU CAN BE THE PRODIGAL SON

WHO COMES TO THEMSELVES, AND

SAY, OKAY, I DON'T NEED THAT

ANYMORE.

THE ONE THING I NEED IS GOD

IN MY LIFE.

NOW, WHEN YOU FIND HIM, AND

HE FILLS THAT HOLE WITHIN

YOU, WELL, THEN IT WILL ALL

MAKE SENSE TO YOU.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SEARCHING

FOR ALL YOUR LIFE.

THE BIBLE SAYS -- SOLOMON

SAYS, GOD PUT ETERNITY IN

OUR HEARTS.

AND HE DID THAT SO HE WOULD

BE THE ONE TO FILL THE NEED

THAT ALL OF US HAVE.

NOW, YOU'VE BEEN FILLING

THAT NEED WITH OTHER

THINGS.

WHETHER IT'S ALCOHOL, OR

LIKE CHIP, DRUGS, OR MAYBE

IT WAS THE PURSUIT OF SOME

KIND OF SUCCESS OR MONEY,

SEX, GAMBLING.

WHAT IS IT?

WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO

MEDICATE YOURSELF WITH?

WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO FILL

THAT HOLE WITH?

BUT WHEN YOU FIND HIM AND

YOU FIND THAT HE CAN BE YOUR

ALL IN ALL, WELL, THEN ALL

THOSE OTHER THINGS PASS

AWAY.

AND BEHOLD ALL THINGS BECOME

NEW.

AND YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITH

GOD LIFE CAN BE A GREAT

ADVENTURE.

AND YOU CAN GO FROM GLORY TO

GLORY, FROM FAITH TO FAITH.

JUST UNBELIEVABLE

EXPERIENCES.

GOD DOESN'T HAVE THESE RULES

SO HE KEEPS US FROM GOOD

THINGS.

HE HAS THESE RULES TO KEEP

US FROM TROUBLE.

AND THE GREAT NEWS IS EVEN

IF YOU'VE BROKEN EVERY

SINGLE ONE OF THEM, HE STILL

WANTS YOU.

HE STILL LOVES YOU.

YOU'RE STILL HIS CHILD.

HE STILL WANTS THAT

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU THAT

HE CREATED YOU FOR.

NOW, HOW DO YOU GET IT?

WELL, JUST LIKE CHIP, YOU

ASK FOR IT.

YOU SAY, THAT'S WHAT I

WANT.

AND MAYBE, LIKE CHIP, YOU'VE

DONE THAT BEFORE AND YOU

MESSED UP AND YOU FELL

AWAY.

WELL, THE GOOD NEWS IS YOU

CAN COME HOME, TOO.

GOD IS THE GOD OF SECOND

CHANCES.

THIRD CHANCES.

FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN

CHANCES.

SEVEN TIMES 70 CHANCES.

HE'LL NEVER REJECT YOU.

HE'LL NEVER PUSH YOU AWAY.

HIS VOICE IS ALWAYS CALLING,

COME HOME.

IF THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT, IF

THIS IS FOR YOU, AND IF

TODAY IS YOUR DAY, JUST BOW

YOUR HEAD WITH ME AND PRAY A

VERY SIMPLE PRAYER, AND LET

GOD DO FOR YOU WHAT HE HAS

DONE FOR SO MANY OTHERS.

HE IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

HE WANTS YOU.

AND HE IS EVEN WILLING TO

LEAVE THE 99 JUST FOR YOU.

SO IF THIS IS YOU, BOW YOUR

HEAD.

LET'S PRAY.

AND LET'S LET GOD DO ALL OF

THE REST.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR OTHERS,

HE WANTS TO DO FOR YOU.

LET'S PRAY.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

HIS NAME.

SAY IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU, AND,

JESUS, I ASK FOR

FORGIVENESS.

I ASK THAT YOU MAKE ME

KNEW.

THAT YOU TAKE AWAY ALL THESE

DESIRES FOR THINGS THAT ARE

NOT OF YOU.

AND WHAT I WANT RIGHT NOW IS

FOR YOU TO COME INTO MY

HEART AND FILL THAT HOLE

WITHIN ME, THAT LONGING

WITHIN ME.

AND FILL IT WITH YOUR

PRESENCE, YOUR

RIGHTEOUSNESS, YOUR PEACE,

AND YOUR JOY.

HEAR MY PRAYER.

COME INTO MY HEART.

COME INTO MY LIFE, FOR I ASK

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK THAT ALL THESE

CHAINS, ANY BONDAGE OVER

THEIR HEARTS, OVER THEIR

SPIRITS, OVER THEIR MINDS,

WOULD BE BROKEN NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

AND FILL THEM TO OVERFLOWING

WITH YOUR SPIRIT, AND

BAPTIZE THEM IN YOUR LOVE.

FILL THEM TO OVERFLOWING.

LET THEM KNOW THEIR PRAYER

HAS BE HEARD AND ACCEPTED

TODAY.

DO IT NOW, FOR WE ASK IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, THE

BIBLE SAYS ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO TO BE SAVED -- IT'S VERY

SIMPLE -- BELIEVE IN YOUR

HEART THAT JESUS IS LORD,

THAT HE CAME, THAT HE WAS

THE PERFECT SACRIFICE FOR

ALL SINS, FOR ALL PEOPLE,

FOR ALL TIME.

BELIEVE THAT.

BELIEVE THAT HE ROSE AGAIN.

BELIEVE THAT HE IS RET NOW

ARIGHT NOW AT THE RIGHT

HAND OF THE FATHER.

PRAYING FOR YOU.

THAT HE LIVES TO GIVE

INTERCESSION.

BELIEVE THAT IN YOUR HEART,

AND THEN CONFESS IT WITH

YOUR MOUTH.

AND WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH

AND YOU SAY I BELIEVE JESUS

IS LORD, IT IS WONDERFUL.

IT IS TRANSFORMATIVE.

I MADE IT EASY FOR YOU TO DO

THAT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS MAKE A

TOLL-FREE CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I JUST PRAYED WITH

THAT GUY ON TV AND I ASKED

JESUS TO COME INTO MY HEART,

AND I WANT TO LET SOMEBODY

ELSE KNOW THAT I MADE THAT

DECISION.

WHEN YOU CALL, I'VE GOT

SOMETHING FOR YOU.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

SOUTH KOREA'S DEFENSE

MINISTRY SAYS NORTH KOREA

COULD FIRE A MISSILE ANY

DAY.

U.S. OFFICIALS AGREE THAT A

MISSILE IS FUELED AND READY

FOR LAUNCH, BUT THE TARGET,

UNKNOWN.

THE PENTAGON SAYS, THOUGH,

IT IS READY TO SHOOT DOWN A

MISSILE IF NECESSARY.

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND SUCH

ACTION?

IF THE MISSILE WAS IN THE

DEFENSE OF THE HOMELAND, I

WOULD CERTAINLY RECOMMEND

THAT ACTION.

IF IT WAS IN DEFENSE OF OUR

ALLIES, I WOULD RECOMMEND

ACTION.

Lee: THE SOUTH KOREAN

GOVERNMENT IS ON HIGH

ALERT.

A THREAT LEVEL JUST SHORT OF

WAR.

IT IS SAID THAT KIM JONG UN

IS BLUSTERING, BUT MILITARY

OFFICIALS SAY THAT THE YOUNG

LEADER IS MUCH MORE

UNPREDICTABLE THAN HIS

FATHER OR GRANDFATHER.

SOME CALIFORNIA LAWMAKERS

ARE TRYING TO REMOVE TAX

EXEMPTIONS FROM THE BOY

SCOUTS BECAUSE OF ITS BAN ON

GAYS.

DEMOCRAT STATE SENATOR

RICARDO LAWYER NISH

INITIATED IT.

IF PASSED, THE BOY SCOUTS

WOULD HAVE TO PAY CORPORATE

TAXES ON DONATIONS AND

INCOME FROM FEES.

THAT BILL IS SET FOR AN

INITIAL COMMITTEE HEARING IN

CALIFORNIA TODAY.

WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

Terry: THAT IS SO

EXCITING.

WE'RE JUST BEGINNING TO SEE

THE IMPACT THAT THIS WILL

HAVE ON KIDS AROUND THE

WORLD.

AND WE'LL BE TELLING YOU

MORE ABOUT IT.

IN A REMOTE CHINESE VILLAGE,

A SINGLE FATHER NEEDED A JOB

TO SUPPORT HIS FAMILY.

SO HIS 6-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER

SAID A PRAYER FOR HIM, AND

THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY,

PEOPLE, JUST LIKE YOU,

BECAME THE ANSWER TO THAT

PRAYER.

6-YEAR-OLD YANHE FEN ALWAYS

DREAMED OF GOING TO SCHOOL.

BUT SHE DIDN'T THINK IT

WOULD BE RIGHT TO ASK HER

FATHER.

I DIDN'T WANT MY DAD TO

FEEL BAD.

I KNEW HE WANTED ME IN

SCHOOL, BUT HE DIDN'T HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY.

WE ARE REALLY POOR.

Terry: AND MR. YAN HAS

BEEN DEAF SINCE BIRTH.

BUT HE HAS BEEN TRYING TO

RAISE HIS DAUGHTER SINCE HIS

WIFE LEFT WHEN SHE WAS TWO.

MY SON WANTS TO PROVIDE

FOR HIS DAUGHTER, BUT SINCE

HE IS DEAF, NO ONE WILL HIRE

HIM.

SOMETIMES HIS FRIENDS GIVE

HIM AN ODD JOB HERE OR

THERE, BUT HE CAN'T MAKE

MUCH MONEY LIKE THAT.

Terry: MR. YAN AND HIS

DAUGHTER LIVE WITH GRANDMA

YAN.

SHE SHOWED THAT WHILE HER

FATHER MAY NOT BE ABLE TO

PROVIDE ALL HER NEEDS, BUT

HER HEAVENLY FATHER COULD.

I ASKED GOD EVERY DAY

THAT MY DAD WOULD GET A JOB

AND BE HAPPY.

Terry: SHE SAYS GOD

ANSWERED HER PRAYERS WHEN

CBN CAME TO HER VILLAGE.

WE SAW HOW HARD THINGS WERE

FOR THIS FATHER-DAUGHTER

TEAM, AND QUICKLY GAVE HIM

THE TOOLS HE NEEDED TO START

HIS OWN BARBER SHOP.

I'M SO PROUD OF MY DAD.

MY SON IS MAKING $20 A

DAY, AND THAT'S A LOT OF

MONEY FOR OUR FAMILY.

IT MEANS I DON'T HAVE TO

WORRY ANYMORE.

Terry: AND TODAY YANHE

IS HAPPIER FOR EVER BECAUSE

CBN PROVIDED EVERYTHING SHE

NEEDED TO GO TO SCHOOL AND

GET AN EDUCATION.

NOW I KNOW HOW MUCH MY

HEAVENLY FATHER LOVES ME.

HE HEARD MY PRAYERS AND SENT

YOU HERE TO HELP US.

THANK YOU, CBN.

YOU ARE GOOD.

YOU HAVE DONE A REALLY GREAT

THING FOR MY FAMILY.

Terry: ISN'T IT AN

AMAZING THING TO KNOW THAT

YOU AND I, WHILE SITTING

RIGHT IN THE COMFORT OF OUR

OWN LIVING ROOMS, CAN HAVE

THIS KIND OF AN IMPACT ON A

FAMILY IN NEED ON THE OTHER

SIDE OF THE GLOBE.

GORDON?

Gordon: WHEN WE COME

BACK, MY FAVORITE PART OF

THE SHOW.

WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR YOU AND

YOUR NEEDS RIGHT AFTER WE

SEE HOW A WOMAN'S PRAYERS

FOR HEALING WAS ANSWERED

OVERNIGHT.

Gordon: SHE IS A WOMAN

WHO KNOWS THE POWER OF

PRAYER.

THAT'S WHY WHEN SHE ASKED

GOD TO HEAL HER, SHE KNEW IT

WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME,

AND SHE WAS RIGHT.

Reporter: SHORTLY AFTER

VIE RAL'S HUSBAND DIED, SHE

NOTICED A BALD PATCH.

I I WAS GOING THROUGH A

STRESSFUL TIME, AND I

REALIZED THAT MY HAIR HAD

FALLEN OUT.

IT WAS A QUARTER INCH PATCH

IN THE HAIRLINE.

IT KIND OF FREAKED ME OUT.

IT WAS REALLY, REALLY

HORRIBLE.

SO I PRAYED.

I ASKED THE LORD.

I SAID, LORD, YOU CAN DO

ANYTHING, SO YOU DO IT.

I BELIEVED THAT GOD WOULD DO

IT.

Reporter: SEVERAL

MONTHS PASSED.

THEN SOMETHING GOT VIE'S

ATTENTION.

SHE HEARD KRISTI TALKING

ABOUT ALOPECIA ON "THE 700

CLUB."

THERE IS SOMEONE WITH

ALOPECIA ON YOUR SCALP, AND

THE LORD IS HEALING YOU

RIGHT NOW IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

I SAID, THAT'S FOR ME.

BECAUSE I KNEW WHAT ALOPECIA

WAS, AND SURE ENOUGH, I

LOOKED IN THE MIRROR THE

NEXT MORNING, AND THE HAIR

WAS COMING BACK.

SO I SAID, PRAISE THE LORD.

HE HAS HEALED ME.

IT WAS SO COOL BECAUSE IT

WAS THE SAME LENGTH AND

EVERYTHING.

I HAVE NOT HAD ANY PROBLEM

WITH MY HAIR SENSE.

WHEN I PRAY, I KNOW GOD IS

GOING TO ANSWER.

I KNOW HE WILL.

THAT'S JUST GOD.

THAT'S HIS NATURE.

HE WANTS TO ANSWER

EVERYONE'S PRAYERS.

AND HE IS A GOOD GOD.

HE LOVES US AND HE WANTS TO

DOTE ON US, REALLY.

Gordon: THAT'S GOOD

DOCTRINE.

HE WANTS TO DOTE ON US.

CALL TO ME, AND I WILL

ANSWER YOU.

THAT'S THE PROMISE OF GOD.

CALL TO HIM.

HE'LL BE YOUR VERY PRESENT

HELP IN TIME OF TROUBLE.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE MIRACLE

THAT THE SAME PATCH THAT HAD

FALLEN OUT, BY THE NEXT

MORNING HAD GROWN BACK TO

THE SAME LENGTH.

THAT'S INCREDIBLE.

BEFORE WE PRAY, WE'RE GOING

TO HAVE SOME WONDERFUL

TESTIMONIES FOR YOU.

HERE IS ONE FROM MANASSUS,

VIRGINIA.

THIS WOMAN HAD BEEN IN AND

OUT OF THE HOSPITAL SEVERAL

TIMES WITH BACK PAIN.

SHE HAD EPIDURALS, AND

NOTHING SEEMED TO HELP.

SHE TOOK EARLY RETIREMENT,

BUT HER CONDITION GOT TO THE

POINT WHERE SHE COULDN'T

EVEN WALK.

THEN LAST DECEMBER, SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

SHE HEARD ABOUT GOD HEALING

OTHERS.

IN FRUSTRATION, SHE SPOKE

OUT LOUD, HOW ABOUT ME?

AND GOD SAID HOW ABOUT YOU?

TERRY SAID, YOU HAVE A VERY

DAMAGED PELVIC GIRDLE, AND

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

IN FAITH, SHE GOT UP AND

TRIED TO WALK, AND THERE WAS

NO PAIN.

SHE IS NOW ABLE TO MOVE

ABOUT WITH NO DIFFICULTY.

THAT'S A MIRACLE.

THAT'S WHAT GOD DOES.

Terry: PRAISE THE

LORD.

THIS IS DONALD.

DONALD LIVES IN ROCHESTER

HILLS, MICHIGAN.

IN 2006 HE INJURED HIS

SHOULDER WHILE TRYING TO

START A HOME GENERATOR.

HE UNDERWENT SURGERY, BUT

LITTLE OR NO MOVEMENT IN

THAT ARM.

DOCTORS TOLD HIM THAT

NOTHING MORE COULD BE DONE.

THEN LAST JANUARY HE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM, AND

HE HEARD YOU, GORDON, GIVE

THIS WORD OF KNOWLEDGE,

"THERE IS SOMEONE WITH A

SHOULDER INJURY, AND IT IS

CAUSING YOU NUMBNESS, GOD IS

HEALING THAT ARM.

WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO BEFORE,

BEGIN TO DO NOW, AND RECEIVE

HEALING INTO THAT SHOULDER.

DONALD LIFTED HIS ARM UP,

AND WHEN HE WENT BACK TO THE

DOCTOR AND DEMONSTRATED

THAT, THE DOCTOR SAID, YOU

CAN'T DO THAT.

YOU DON'T HAVE A TENDON."

GOD IS A CREATIVE MIRACLE

WORKER.

Gordon: YOU DON'T HAVE

THAT, YOU DON'T HAVE THAT

TENDON, BUT GOD IS ABLE TO

DO THAT FOR YOU.

JUST BELIEVE.

BE LIKE A LITTLE CHILD AND

SAY, WHAT DADDY PROMISED, HE

WILL DO.

THAT'S WHAT ABRAHAM DID.

HE DIDN'T CONSIDER THE

DEADNESS OF HIS OWN BODY.

WHAT HE CONSIDERED IS THAT

HE WHO HAD PROMISED WAS

ABLE.

THAT'S WHAT HE DID.

HE WHO HAS PROMISED IS

ABLE.

AND WILLINGLY.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TALK HIM

INTO IT.

JUST LOOK TO JESUS, THE

AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF YOUR

FAITH.

AND IF JESUS WAS WILLING TO

DIE ON THE CROSS FOR YOU, HE

IS MORE THAN WILLING TO HEAL

YOU TODAY.

JUST BELIEVE IT, RECEIVE IT,

AND WATCH WHAT GOD WILL DO

FOR YOU.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT ALL OF

THE NEEDS, ALL THE PAINS,

ALL THE SUFFERING RIGHT NOW,

AND WE CAST IT ALL UPON YOU,

FOR YOU TOOK IT ALL.

YOU BORE OUR SICKNESS.

YOU BORE OUR ILLNESS.

YOU BORE OUR PAIN.

YOU BORE OUR INFIRMITY.

AND IF YOU BORE IT, WE DON'T

HAVE TO BEAR IT ANYMORE.

YOU'VE TAKEN IT ALL AWAY.

SO IN JESUS' NAME WE DECLARE

BE HEALED NOW AND BE EVERY

BIT WHOLE.

I JUST REBUKE PAIN NOW IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

THAT PAIN IN THE RIGHT

SHOULDER BE GONE NOW.

THAT PAIN IN THE CENTER OF

THE BACK BE GONE NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

THAT MIGRAINE HEADACHE BE

GONE NOW.

THAT SINUS INFECTION GONE

AND NEVER RETURN.

LET THERE BE CLEAR SINUSES,

CLEAR DRAINAGE, FROM THIS

POINT FORWARD.

NEVER AGAIN.

THIS IS A CHILD OF GONE.

PAIN HAS NO RIGHT TO THIS

BODY.

BE GONE AND BE DELIVERED

FROM IT NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

TERRY, WHAT IS GOD TELLING

YOU?

Terry: THERE IS IS

SOMEONE, YOU HAVE A

CONDITION -- I DON'T KNOW

WHAT YOU CALL IT.

IT IS IN THE EYELASHES OF

YOUR EYE AND IT GETS RED AND

SWOLLEN AND CRUSTY AND

ITCHES AND BURNS AT THE SAME

TIME.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

YOU'VE HAD THIS FOR YEARS.

GOD IS HEALING THAT AND IT

WILL GRADUALLY GO AWAY AND

IT WILL NOT RETURN.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH A RIGHT EAR

INFECTION, AND THERE IS

DRAINAGE COMING OUT OF THE

EAR.

INCREASED PRESSURE AND

PAIN.

AND GOD IS TAKING IT ALL

AWAY.

YOU JUST FELT IT RELEASE.

IN JESUS' NAME, YOU'RE

HEALED.

BEGIN TO THANK HIM AND

PRAISE HIM.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOUR JAW IS OUT OF

ALIGNMENT, AND GOD IS

REALIGNING THAT FOR YOU.

YOU'LL ACTUALLY FEEL THAT

MOVE INTO PLACE AND YOU'RE

NOT GOING TO HAVE THE

PROBLEM ANYMORE.

Gordon: LORD, WE THANK

YOU, FOR YOU ARE THE

HEALER.

AND WE THANK YOU FOR WHAT

YOU'VE DONE TODAY IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE ALWAYS REJOICE IN

THESE STORIES AND WE WANT TO

TELL THES ABOUT YOUR STORY.

SO GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.

PRAYER.

SO IF YOU NEED SOMEONE TO

STAND WITH YOU IN PRAYER,

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU, SO CALL

US.

UP NEXT, WE'LL "BRING IT ON"

WITH YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

STAY TUNED.

Terry: WE HAVE A LITTLE

BIT OF TIME TO ANSWER YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

I'M GOING TO START WITH

STEVEN.

HE ASKED, "AFTER JESUS TIED

AND THE TEMPLE VEIL WAS TORN

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM, WHAT

HAPPENED TO LIFE IN

JERUSALEM?

WAS IT BUSINESS AS USUAL IN

THE TEMPLE FOR PRIESTS AFTER

THE VEIL WAS TEARED, AND DID

THEY CONTINUE WITH

SACRIFICES AFTER JESUS

DIED?"

Gordon: WE HAVE IT FROM

ACTS THAT THE APOSTLES WOULD

TEACH IN THE TEMPLE, SO,

YES, THE TEMPLE LIFE

RETURNED.

YOU HAVE AT APOSTLE PAUL

GOING TO THE TEMPLE.

AS THEY ACCUSED HIM OF

BRINGING A GENTILE INTO THE

TEMPLE AREA.

JOSEFUS WROTE ABOUT IT, THAT

THE TEMPLE SACRIFICES

CONTINUED UNTIL IT WAS

DESTROYED IN 8070 BY THE

ROMANS AND TITUS.

THE SACRIFICES RESUMED.

Terry: THAT WAS ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAD, BUT WE'LL

SAVE THEM FOR TOMORROW.

Gordon: THE OTHER ONE

WAS EASY, TOO, AND IT HAD TO

DO WITH JOSEPH.

JOSEPH PROBABLY DIED BEFORE

JESUS STARTED HIS MINISTRY.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM ROMANS 5: 8: "GOD

DEMONSTRATES HIS OWN LOVE

FOR US, AND WHILE WE WERE

STILL SINNERS, CHRIST DIED

FOR US."

KEEP THAT NUMBER HANDY,

1-800-759-0700.

WE'RE AVAILABLE FOR YOU IF

YOU NEED PRAYER.

JUST GIVE US A CALL.
