>>>THE FOLLOWING PROGRAM IS
SPONSORED BY CBN.>>>COMING UP, THE HEISMAN
HOPEFUL.>>CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS IS YOUR
HISTORY?>>NEVER THOUGHT I’D GET THE
OPPORTUNITY.>>WHO’S LEADING THE TIDE BACK
TO THE TITLE GAME.>>I CAN BE THAT MUCH BETTER.
>>ALABAMA STAR QUARTERBACK TAKES US INSIDE THE MIND OF A
CHAMPION.>>MY FOUNDATION IS MY FAITH
AND MY FAMILY.>>THAN THE SHOCK OF A
LIFETIME.>>MY FIRST QUESTION WAS, IS HE
ALIVE?>>12000 VOLTS.
>>THE DOCTOR TOLD US HE’S NOT GOING TO MAKE IT.
>>HOW THIS FATHER SURVIVED ELECTROCUTION ON TODAY’S 700
CLUB.>>WELCOME TO THE 700 CLUB.
IT LOOKS LIKE A BOMB WENT OFF. SCENES THROUGHOUT THE BAHAMAS.
BUDDY COUNTS RISING, AND DRAMATIC RESCUES UNDERWAY
DURING THIS UNIMAGINABLE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS.
THE CATEGORY TO DORIAN IS DOWN BUT NOT OUT.
STILL UNKNOWN HOW IT WILL STRIKE NEXT.
>>Reporter: THIS IS THE SCENE AFTER DORIAN’S BRUTAL ATTACK ON
THE BAHAMAS. TOTAL DEVASTATION, DEBRIS THAT
WAS ONCE PEOPLE’S HOMES NOW COVERING THE GROUND WITH
WRECKAGE. HIDDEN AS A CATEGORY 5 STORM
WITH WINDS OVER 200 MILES PER HOUR, DORIAN WAS THE MOST
POWERFUL STORM IN RECORDED HISTORY HERE.
IT TARGETED THE GRAND BAHAMA ISLAND’S, KNOWN FOR THEIR
MARINAS, GOLF COURSES, AND ALL- INCLUSIVE RESORTS.
EVEN WORSE, DORIAN STALLED OVER THESE ISLANDS AND THEIR 70000
PEOPLE FOR TWO DAYS.>>IT WAS TERRIFYING.
WE ARE HAPPY TO BE ALIVE. GLAD THAT MY FAMILY IS SAFE.
>>RESCUERS REPORT SEEING BODIES FLOATING IN THE WATER.
THE FINAL DEATH TOLL WON’T BE KNOWN FOR DAYS.
THE U.S. COAST GUARD IS HELPING LEAD SEARCH AND RESCUE, BUT
THEY ARE STILL AREAS THAT FIRST RESPONDERS CAN’T REACH.
PEOPLE ARE USING BOATS, EVEN JET SKIS TO TRY TO REACH THOSE
WHO HAVE LOST EVERYTHING. A HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IS
EMERGING IN THE BAHAMAS. THE MAIN HOSPITAL ON GRAND
BAHAMA IS UNUSABLE. HOMES ARE DESTROYED AND MORE
THAN 60000 PEOPLE NEED FOOD AND CLEAN DRINKING WATER.
>>AND DORIAN IS NOT DONE. IT IS NOW A CATEGORY 2 STORM
BUT WITH WINDS OF 110 MILES PER HOUR.
IT IS STILL CONSIDERED DANGEROUS.
AUTHORITIES HAVE ASKED 2 MILLION PEOPLE IN FLORIDA,
GEORGIA, AND THE CAROLINAS TO EVACUATE.
>>THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS STORM, AND THE WESTERN SHIFT
THAT IS TOWARD LAND OF JUST A FEW MILES COULD BRING HIM
ENORMOUS DAMAGE.>>EVEN IF DORIAN DOESN’T MAKE
LANDFALL IN THE U.S., IT COULD BRING STORM SURGE AND SEVERE
FLOODING. IN LOW-LYING CHARLESTON, SOUTH
CAROLINA, AUTHORITIES ARE RACING TO MOVE HOSPITAL
PATIENTS TO HIGHER GROUND. IN SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, THEY
PROVIDED BUSES FOR FAMILIES TO GET OUT.
>>I DON’T HAVE A VEHICLE AND I DON’T HAVE ANY WAY TO GO OUT OF
TOWN.>>DORIAN HAS GROUNDED
THOUSANDS OF FLIGHTS AND SHUT DOWN SEVERAL AIRPORTS.
CBN’S ERIC PHILLIPS IS WAITING OUT THE STORM IN DAYTONA BEACH.
>>Reporter: LEADING UP TO THE STORM’S ARRIVAL, DAYTONA’S
WEATHER STARTED TO DETERIORATE WITH BURSTS OF RAIN AND WIND.
IT PROMPTED THOSE WITH HURRICANE FATIGUE TO BRAVE THE
TECHNICALLY CLOSED BEACH.>>ONE MINUTE I’M ALL NERVOUS
AND SCARED THAT EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BLOW AWAY AND THAT
IT’S TRACKING OFF IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION, THEN IT
STOPS. THIS ONE HAS BEEN REALLY
UNPREDICTABLE.>>THIS MAN GAVE US AN
INTERESTING COMPARISON TO DESCRIBE DORIAN.
>>BEING STOPPED BY A SLOW- MOVING TURTLE, AS MY FRIEND
SAYS. IT’S FINALLY HERE BUT IT’S
TAKING ITS SWEET TIME. THE EXCITEMENT HAS WORN OFF,
I’D SAY. @WANED, BUT VIGILANCE CANNOT.
>>THINGS CAN CHANGE FOR THE BETTER,BUT AS WE KNOW, THEY
COULD STILL CHANGE FOR THE WORST.
>>AND SOME OF THE WORST HAS COME OUT.
OFFICIALS SAY AN ELDERLY WOMAN AND A BLIND MAN HAVE BEEN BUILT
OUT OF THEIR MONEY BY SCAMMERS.>>YOU’VE GOT TO BE A REAL
SCUMBAG IF YOU ARE GOING TO ATTACK PEOPLE WHO ARE BLIND AND
PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THE EXTREMELY ELDERLY STATE AND SHOW UP AND
SCAM THEM OUT OF TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.
>>ONE OF THE MANY REASONS WHY PEOPLE HERE SAY THEY WILL BE
GLAD WHEN THIS IS ALL OVER.>>ALL THE SURFERS HAVE BEEN
WATCHING THE STORM AND WE ARE JUST READY TO CATCH SOME WAVES
FINALLY. IT’S BEEN A BAD SUMMER FOR US
IN FLORIDA. WE ARE READY.
IT’S ON.>>CBN REPORTER ERIC PHILLIPS
IS IN DAYTONA BEACH WHERE THE WIND AND RAIN ARE COMING
ASHORE. TELL US WHAT’S HAPPENING RIGHT
NOW.>>Reporter: WELL, WE ARE HERE
AT THE TIME IN WHICH THOSE TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS ARE
GETTING TO BE AT THEIR WORST. YOU CAN SEE BEHIND ME THAT THE
OCEAN IS REALLY MORE POWERFUL AND ANGRY LOOKING THAN IT HAS
BEEN IN THE LAST COUPLE DAYS SINCE WE’VE BEEN HERE COVERING
THIS STORY. THEY ARE EXPECTING WIND GUSTS
OF 40 TO 50 MILES PER HOUR HERE IN DAYTONA BEACH, AND WE HAVE
FELT THEM FROM TIME TO TIME, THEY HAVE JUST NOT BEEN
CONSISTENT. ONE MOMENT IT WILL BE WINDY AND
TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR’S, THE NEXT MOMENT IT WILL BE A LITTLE
LIGHTER LIKE IT IS NOW AND THE WINDS NOT BLOWING AS MUCH.
STILL, SOME OF THE BRIDGES IN THE AREA HAVE BEEN CLOSED OFF.
THE AREA HERE AT THE OCEANFRONT HAS BEEN EVACUATED.
PEOPLE HAVE BOARDED UP THEIR HOMES AND BUSINESSES AND HEADED
TO NEARBY SHELTERS JUST TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE.
THE REALITY IS PEOPLE HERE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR DAYS FOR
DORIAN TO HIT DAYTONA’S DOOR, AND IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING.
HOW POWERFUL IT WILL BE, ULTIMATELY, IS YET TO BE SEEN.
BEAR IN MIND HIGH TIDE IS COMING TODAY AT 12:00 NOON.
>>IS THE MOOD FRIGHTENING OR JUST TIRED OF WAITING FOR IT?
WHAT’S THE MOOD?>>I THINK IF I HAD TO
CHARACTERIZE THE MOOD, I WOULD SAY THAT THEY ARE HURRICANE
FATIGUE. THIS HAS BEEN A SLOW MOVING
STORM. IT’S COMING IN.
IT’S STILL COMING. IT’S STILL COMING.
PEOPLE HAVE BEEN PREPARED FOR SOME TIME.
BEAR IN MIND THAT WE ARE IN AN AREA THAT’S USED TO GETTING
HURRICANES. THEY’VE DEALT WITH THEM MANY
TIMES BEFORE, BUT WHAT THEY ARE NOT USED IT IS THE
UNPREDICTABILITY OF THIS STORM WHEREBY THE TRACK HAS CHANGED
SEVERAL TIMES. IT SPED UP AND SLOW DOWN, SO I
THINK PEOPLE HERE JUST WANT TO COME — WANTED TO COME IF IT’S
COMING BUT THEY WANT TO GET ON WITH THEIR LIVES.
>>DO YOU HAVE OFFICIAL REPORTS OF EXPECTED DAMAGE?
>>SO FAR HERE IN VOLUSIA COUNTY, WE HAVE NOT HEARD ANY
REPORTS OF DAMAGES JUST YET. AGAIN, IT’S STILL KIND OF
COMING THROUGH MAKING ITS WAY FROM SOUTHERN BREVARD COUNTY
INTO VOLUSIA, SO I’M SURE WE WILL SEE SOME DAMAGE IN THE
COMING HOURS. BUT I DO A REPORT IN TERMS OF
POWER OUTAGES THAT RIGHT NOW IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA THERE ARE
ABOUT 10000 PEOPLE WITHOUT POWER.
2000 OF THEM ARE HERE IN VOLUSIA COUNTY.
>>THANK YOU SO MUCH. ERIC PHILLIPS IN DAYTONA BEACH,
FLORIDA. AND DORIAN HASN’T REALLY, SURE
YET.>>SOUTH CAROLINA IS THE PLACE
NOW THEY ARE REALLY WORRIED IT’S GOING TO MAKE LANDFALL.
MY PARENTS ARE, HOPEFULLY, IN THEIR CAR LEAVING SOUTH
CAROLINA. THEY HAVE A LITTLE PLACE IN
MYRTLE BEACH THAT THEY LIKE TO GO TO AND HANG OUT.
I CALLED THEM YESTERDAY AND SAID, HEY, ARE YOU GUYS GOING
TO — WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? I HONESTLY THOUGHT THEY WOULD
HUNKER DOWN BECAUSE THEY ARE SORT OF ADVENTUROUS AND STORM
CHASERS, BUT FORTUNATELY THEY ARE HEEDING THE WARNING AND
EVACUATION ORDERS AND THEY ARE ON THEIR WAY HOME AS FAR AS I
KNOW.>>THOSE INTERSTATES ARE SO
JAMMED UP RIGHT NOW. 95 IS CROWDED.
IT’S LIKE A PARKING LOT.>>MY MOM SAID SHE DIDN’T WANT
TO BE THERE WHEN THE ELECTRICITY WENT OUT, AND I
DON’T BLAME HER FOR THAT.>>GOOD FOR HER.
>>>IN OTHER NEWS, MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS IN ENGLAND WERE A
REVOLT IN PARLIAMENT OVER THE BREXIT DEAL COULD LEAD TO A
WHOLE NEW ELECTION. MORE ON THAT STORY FROM OUR CBN
NEWS BUREAU IN WASHINGTON.>>Reporter: DEFIANT BRITISH
LAWMAKERS ARE MOVING THE NO DEAL BREXIT.
JOHNSON IS RETALIATING BY ANNOUNCING PLANS TO CALL AN
EARLY ELECTION, AND EARLY GENERAL ELECTION, IN THE BID
FOR A NEW PARLIAMENT THAT WOULD BACK HIS BREXIT POLICY, BUT
THAT WOULD PUT HIS OWN FUTURE AND THAT OF HIS CONSERVATIVE
PARTY ON THE LINE. WHAT COULD HAPPEN NEXT INCLUDES
NEW LEGISLATION TO BLOCK A NO DEAL BREXIT.
THE NO-CONFIDENCE MOTION AGAINST THE BRITISH PRIME
MINISTER OR POTENTIAL NO AGREEMENT WHICH WOULD MEAN A SO-
CALLED HARD BREXIT ON THE LINE. THERE IS REAL CONCERN IT WOULD
MADE ECONOMIC AND TRAVEL CHAOS IF NO AGREEMENT IS REACHED
BETWEEN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND THE EU.
WORST-CASE FORECAST SHOWED GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCTS RANKING
BY 10% OR MORE AND THE EUROPEAN UNION HAS SAID IT WOULD TREAT
THE UK TRAVELERS LIKE THOSE FROM A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY
LEADING TO SIGNIFICANT DELAYS.>>>HONG KONG’S CHIEF EXECUTIVE
SAYS SHE IS WITHDRAWING A CHINA EXTRADITION BILL THAT’S SPARKED
MONTHS OF PROTESTS FEARING MORE CONTROL FROM MAINLAND CHINA AND
LESS FREEDOM IN HONG KONG. PROTESTERS HAVE FILLED THE
STREETS FOR 13 WEEKS. CLASHES BETWEEN POLICE AND
PROTESTERS HAVE BECOME INCREASINGLY VIOLENT WITH
DEMONSTRATORS THROWING GASOLINE BOMBS AT OFFICERS LAST WEEKEND
AND AUTHORITIES USING WATER CANNONS, TEAR GAS, RUBBER
BULLETS, AND BATONS. CHINESE FORCES ARE ON THE
BORDER IN BEIJING AND THEY SAID THEY WILL INTERVENE.
THE END IS COMING.>>I JUST THINK IF CHINA MOVED
ACROSS THE BORDER, IT WOULD SPARK INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS
AGAINST CHINA, AND THEY KNOW THEY CAN’T DO IT, BUT TAKING
AWAY THAT EXTRADITION TREATY WAS SMART.
THEY SHOULD’VE PULLED A LONG TIME AGO WITH SOME OF THE BIG
PLAYERS IN THESE BIG COMPANIES. ENORMOUSLY WEALTHY PEOPLE, AND
THEY JUST CAN’T STAND ALL OF THEIR REVENUE TO GO AWAY IN THE
TOURIST INDUSTRY TO FAIL AND THE PROPERTY VALUES TO GO DOWN.
THEY ARE FACING HUGE BILLION DOLLAR LOSSES.
I’M NOT QUITE SURE WHAT THOSE DEMONSTRATORS WANT.
THEY’VE GOTTEN WHEN HE PULLED THAT EXTRADITION TREATY OFF, I
THINK THEY OUGHT TO COOL IT NOW.
IF THEY DON’T, IT CAN LEAD TO A TERRIBLE CONFRONTATION.
JOHN?>>BACK HERE AT HOME, IT WAS A
YEAR AGO WHEN AMERICA WITNESSED A NEW LOW IN POLITICS WITH THE
CONFIRMATION HEARING FROM BRETT CAVANAUGH.
THOUGH IT MAY BE HARD TO IMAGINE, IT COULD BE UGLIER FOR
THE NEXT SUPREME COURT NOMINEE.>>Reporter: LAWMAKERS RETURNED
THIS WEEK TO A QUIET CAPITOL HILL, A FAR CRY FROM WHAT IT
WAS JUST A YEAR AGO WHEN THE CONFIRMATION HEARING OF JUSTICE
BRETT CAVANAUGH EVOLVED INTO WHAT MANY DESCRIBED AS A
CIRCUS.>>I THINK WE OUGHT TO HAVE
THIS REMOVED.>>THIS IS GETTING INTO THE
TWILIGHT ZONE.>>A NEW BOOK WITH INSIDER
ACCOUNTS OF KEY PLAYERS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE TO THE SENATE
AND THE SUPREME COURT.
SHE TOLD CBN NEWS THE CONFIRMATION WAS LESS ABOUT HIM
AND MORE ABOUT POLITICIZATION OF THE COURT, A DEEP PUBLIC
DIVIDE, AND A WELL COORDINATED EFFORT BETWEEN SPECIAL
INTERESTS, PR TEAMS, AND THE MEDIA.
>>ALL OF THOSE WENT TOGETHER TO PRODUCE THE WORST
CONFIRMATION PROCESS WE’VE SEEN AN AMERICAN HISTORY.
>>WHILE PRESIDENT TRUMP CALLED FOR A BIPARTISAN VOTE, THE
HEARINGS MOVED SLOWLY FILLED WITH ASSORTED ALLEGATIONS OF
ALCOHOL ABUSE, ASSAULT, AND RAPE.
>>I AM BECAUSE I BELIEVE IT’S MY CIVIC DUTY TO TELL YOU WHAT
HAPPENED TO ME.>>I’M HERE TODAY TO TELL THE
TRUTH. I HAVE NEVER SEXUALLY ASSAULTED
ANYONE, NOT IN HIGH SCHOOL, NOT IN COLLEGE, NOT EVER.
>>SEVERINO SAYS IT WAS JUST AS VOLATILE BEHIND-THE-SCENES,
INCLUDING ONE ACCOUNT MUCH BEFORE THE COMMITTEE VOTE WHEN
TEMPERS FLARED.>>SENATORS, THEIR STAFFERS,
AND A FISTFIGHT NEARLY BROKE OUT.
ONE OF THE POINTS OF CONCERN WAS THE FRUSTRATION THAT THEY
FELT LIKE SENATORS WERE PLAYING STRAIGHT AND THAT THERE WAS
INTERFERENCE BY THE STAFF THAT WAS INAPPROPRIATE.
REPUBLICANS WHO SUPPORTED HIM ARE LOCKED IN TOUGH REELECTION
BIDS, AND SOME WHITE HOUSE HOPEFULS SAY THEY ARE OPEN TO
PACKING THE COURT. SEVERINO WARNS FILLING THE NEXT
SUPREME COURT VACANCY COULD ACTUALLY BE WORSE.
>>WHAT CONCERNS ME IS THE NEXT SEAT COULD BE A LIBERAL JUSTICE
STEPPING DOWN WITH DONALD TRUMP MAKING THE REPLACEMENT, AND
THAT, IF YOU THINK KENNEDY TO THIS IS A SHIFT, THE LIBERAL
JUSTICE WOULD BE A NIGHT AND DAY CHANGE ON THE COURT.
I THINK WE COULD SEE THE INCENTIVES BUILD TO HAVE AN
EVEN MORE OUTRAGEOUS NOMINATION PROCESS.
>>IT IS HARD TO EVEN FATHOM SOMETHING MORE OUTRAGEOUS.
>>THOSE HEARINGS, THE ACCUSER HAD A RATHER CHECKERED PAST,
AND IT WAS TOLD THAT IN HER YEARBOOK THERE WAS SOME
ACCUSATIONS MADE AGAINST HER, AND EVERY SINGLE COPY OF THAT
YEARBOOK WAS MYSTERIOUSLY TAKEN OFF THE MARKET AND NOBODY KNEW
WHERE THEY WERE. THEY COULDN’T FIND THEM.
THE SENATORS DIDN’T DARE TO QUESTION HER BECAUSE SHE WAS
MAKING ALLEGATIONS THAT WERE JUST NOT TRUE.
BUT THE NEXT TIME I THINK THEY’VE GOT IT LOCKED IN.
THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE IS IN STRONG HANDS.
MITCH MCCONNELL IS THE MAJORITY LEADER.
THEY ARE NOT GOING TO LET THAT CIRCUS TAKE PLACE.
IT’S GOING TO BE A QUICKIE. THEY WON’T NEED ALL THOSE VOTES
BECAUSE HARRY REID PLAYED THE NUCLEAR OPTION.
NOW YOU NEED A SIMPLE MAJORITY. YOU DON’T NEED 2-THIRDS OR ANY
OF THAT STUFF. THEY’VE GOT THE MAJORITY.
IN THE NEXT JUSTICE, IT WILL SWING THE COURT DRAMATICALLY TO
THE CONSERVATIVE POINT OF YOU. I AM TOLD ONE OF THE JUSTICES
MAY HAVE SOME HEALTH ISSUES. THE DEAR LADY WHO GOT CANCER,
SHE’S A SURVIVOR. SHE WILL PROBABLY OUTLIVE ALL
OF US, NEVERTHELESS. THERE WILL BE SEVERAL
VACANCIES. I THINK PRESIDENT TRUMP, IT’S
GOING TO BE INTERESTING.>>BY THE WAY, WE HAD A
WONDERFUL GUEST YESTERDAY. HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE
ARTICLE, AND IT OPENED AFTER OUR INTERVIEW ON AMAZON.
IT WAS THE NUMBER 3 BOOK IN AMERICA.
OUT OF ALL THE FICTION, ALL THE BOOKS, IT WAS NUMBER 3. THE
INTERVIEW WAS FANTASTIC. WE LOVED IT.
WHAT HE’S HAD TO SAY WAS RIVETING.
THE PEOPLE HAVE RESPONDED. I’M PLEASED TO REPORT ACROSS
THIS AUDIENCE, THE SALES WENT UP TO NUMBER 3 IN AMERICA.
NUMBER 1 CHRISTIAN BOOK.>>NUMBER 1.
>>THE NEXT DAY HE WAS ON THE 700 CLUB.
>>THE POWER OF PAT.>>DON’T TELL US YOU DON’T WANT
TO COME ON THE 700 CLUB, BECAUSE WE —
>>YOU KNOW, HE’S FASCINATING.>>IT WAS MARVELOUS, SO
EXCITING.>>I LOVE THIS STUFF.
>>THE PEOPLE WERE JUST MESMERIZED AT WHAT HE HAD TO
SAY. HE IS GREAT GUY.
>>WONDERFUL FRIEND.>>ALL RIGHT.
WE HAVE MUCH MORE HEAD ON TODAY’S PROGRAM.
AFGHAN CHILDREN SLAVING AWAY WHILE WARLORDS ROAM FREE.
COULD THE SOLUTION BE A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL?
PLUS, HE’S ALABAMA’S EXCLUSIVE QUARTERBACK.
A HUMAN HIGHLIGHT REEL WHO WON’T STOP UNTIL HE BRINGS HOME
ANOTHER TITLE. CBN SPORTS BRINGS US THE SCOOP
ON ONE OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL’S ELITE.
THEN, A FARMER IS ELECTROCUTED. THE VOLT IS SO POWERFUL IT BLEW
APART HIS WORKBOOTS. HOW HE MADE IT OUT ALIVE LATER
ON TODAY’S SHOW. TOMORROW’S 700 CLUB.
>>>YOU HEARD ABOUT THE TALE OF THE WAY THEY TREATED WOMEN, THE
TERRIBLE REIGN OF TERROR THEY IMPOSED ON AFGHANISTAN.
WE CANNOT SIT DOWN WITH THE DEAL.
THEY ARE TERRIBLE PEOPLE. WE HAVE A SHOCKING STORY NOW
FROM AFGHANISTAN YOU WON’T SEE ANYWHERE ELSE.
CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS FIVE YEARS OLD ARE DOING BACKBREAKING
LABOR WITH NO END IN SIGHT. WE WENT TO AFGHANISTAN AND GET
A FIRSTHAND LOOK AT HOW GRINDING POVERTY IS DESTROYING
LIVES AND EMPOWERING, YES, THE TELL BAND.
>>EACH DAY BEFORE DAWN, 10- YEAR-OLD CAMERON GOES TO WORK
AT A FACTORY WITH HIS FATHER AND OTHER RELATIVES.
LIKE MANY CHILDREN, SCHOOL IS A LUXURY HIS FAMILY CAN KNOW
LONGER AFFORD. HIS FATHER SUPPORTS HIS FAMILY
OF EIGHT PLUS OTHER YOUNG FAMILY MEMBERS AND NEPHEWS.
SIGNS OF HARDSHIP ARE EVERYWHERE.
>>THIS MARKET IN DOWNTOWN KABUL IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE
MOST DANGEROUS PLACES IN THE CITY, BECAUSE IT’S WHERE THEY
LIKE TO BLOW THINGS UP. THERE’S A HEAVY SECURITY
PRESENCE. THIS IS JUST AFTER FRIDAY
PRAYERS. I AM HERE JUST CHECKING OUT THE
SHOPPING SCENE. VERY INTERESTING FOR SURE.
>>YOU CAN SEE KIDS EVERYWHERE HERE, BEGGING OR WORKING ANY
JOB THEY CAN. OUTSIDE THE CITY, CHILDREN AS
YOUNG AS FIVE OR SIX WORK IN THE SWELTERING HEAT.
>>THERE WAS A TIME WHEN MY FATHER WAS NOT ABLE TO EARN
ENOUGH MONEY, AND I HAD TO LEAVE SCHOOL AND START WORKING
WITH MY FATHER, SO AFTER I STARTED WORKING, I STOPPED
GOING TO SCHOOL.>>’S FAMILY COMES FROM A
PROVINCE WHERE THERE HAS BEEN HEAVY FIGHTING AND THERE’S A
STRONGHOLD FOR THE ISLAMIC STATE.
BRICK FACTORY OWNERS OFFER PEOPLE HERE LOANS FOR BASIC
NECESSITIES, FORCING FAMILIES TO WORK THEM OFF DURING THE
SUMMER MONTHS. WORKERS SAY A FAMILY OF 10 CAN
BRING IN AN AVERAGE OF 12 TO $18 PER DAY.
>>MY CHILDREN WAKE UP IN THE MORNING RIGHT AFTER PRAYERS AND
THEY COME HERE FOR WORK, SO THEY DON’T HAVE TIME FOR
SCHOOL. THESE DAYS IF YOU DON’T WORK,
YOU CAN’T SURVIVE. A BAG OF WHEAT FLOUR IS AROUND
$18 U.S. IN THE MARKET. IF WE ALL DON’T WORK, WE WON’T
BE ABLE TO AFFORD IT TO BUY IT.>>A U.N. REPORT SHOWS MORE
THAN 2 MILLION AFGHAN CHILDREN AGES SIX TO 14 ARE PART OF THE
WORKFORCE. CHILD LABOR LAWS ARE RARELY
ENFORCED, ESPECIALLY IN RURAL AREAS.
AFGHAN’S ECONOMY GREW ONLY BY 2% LAST YEAR AT THE SLOWEST
RATE IN SOUTH ASIA. IN ADDITION TO THE LINGERING
CONFLICT AND DROUGHT, AFGHANISTAN IS SEEN AS AMONG
THE MOST CORRUPT COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD AND MUCH OF THE AID
FROM THE U.S. AND OTHER COUNTRIES ENDS UP IN THE HANDS
OF FORMER WARLORDS WHO ENJOY FORTUNES BY LIVING IN GATED
COMPOUNDS AND CRUISING AROUND IN MOTORCADES.
THIS HAS LED TO WIDESPREAD ANGER AGAINST ELITES HERE
LEADING TO AN INCREASE IN THE RANKS OF THE TELL BAND, WHICH
CONTROLS ABOUT HALF THE COUNTRY.
THEY’VE MADE HEADLINES BY NEGOTIATING WITH THE U.S. TO
GET FOREIGN FORCES OUT OF AFGHANISTAN.
A WORLD BANK REPORT FROM JULY SHOWS AN AGREEMENT WITH THE
TALIBAN COULD BRING BACK THE ECONOMY BY ENCOURAGING THE
RETURN OF CAPITAL AND SKILLED WORKERS FROM OVERSEAS, BUT ONLY
IF THE SECURITY SITUATION IMPROVES.
THE FORMER COUNTRY DIRECTOR FOR AFGHANISTAN SAYS MORE THAN HALF
OF HIS COUNTRY CAN’T MEET THEIR BASIC NEEDS.
>>A DOLLAR A DAY IS WHAT WE ESTIMATE A PERSON WOULD NEED TO
HAVE BASIC NEEDS IS SATISFIED. IT TURNS OUT, UNFORTUNATELY,
THAT MORE THAN HALF OF THE POPULATION LIVES ON LESS THAN A
DOLLAR A DAY. BUT EVEN MORE I THINK STRIKING
WAS THE FACT THAT ALMOST THREE QUARTERS OF THE POPULATION WAS
CLOSE TO THAT LEVEL. THE STATE OF POVERTY IN
AFGHANISTAN TODAY IS THAT IT’S DEEP AND IT’S WIDESPREAD.
>>THE 65-YEAR-OLD WHO WORKS ALONGSIDE THE FAMILY SEES
LITTLE HOPE FOR THE FUTURE. HE’S BEEN WORKING TO PAY OFF
LOANS FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS HAS TURNED
INTO A FAMILY BUSINESS. HIS FOUR SONS ARE ON THE
ASSEMBLY LINE AND HE EXPECTS HIS GRANDCHILDREN AND EVEN
GREAT GRANDCHILDREN WILL DO THE SAME.
>>WE ALWAYS THINK ABOUT OUR FUTURE, BUT WE NEVER KNOW HOW
LONG WE WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH THESE ECONOMIC PROBLEMS OR WHEN
WE WILL BE ABLE TO LIVE OUR OWN LIVES AND BREATHES IN FREEDOM.
>>CBN NEWS.>>>YOU WON’T SEE THAT ANYPLACE
ELSE. CHUCK HAS DONE A FABULOUS JOB.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THEY COULDN’T HAVE GOVERNED
AFGHANISTAN. THE TRAVEL WARS IN THE MAIN
PRODUCT, HE DIDN’T MENTION THE FACTS OF A MAJOR SOURCE OF
HEROIN. IF WE SPRAYED THOSE POPPIES,
WHICH WE COULD EASILY DO, WE COULD CUT OUT THE FLOW OF
HEROIN TO THIS COUNTRY DRAMATICALLY.
AT THE SAME TIME, WE DECIMATE THE POPULATION OVER THERE.
THE WARLORDS CAN LIVE FAT AND HAPPY AND MAKE MONEY AT ALL
SUFFERING PEOPLE IN AMERICA AND OUR OWN POPULATION IS
SUFFERING. WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?
THE ANSWER IS NO. BUT IF WE DON’T DO SOMETHING,
IT’S GOING TO BE TROUBLE FOREVER.
IT’S ONE OF THOSE TERRIBLE THINGS.
THE WARLORDS CONTROL IT, AND IT’S UNGOVERNABLE.
I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE SOLUTION IS, BUT ONE THING FOR SURE IS I
THINK THE PRESIDENT SAYS WE NEED TO GET OUT OF AFGHANISTAN
BECAUSE IT’S JUST A SINKHOLE AND WE ARE POURING BILLIONS AND
BILLIONS OF DOLLARS INTO IT. WELL, I DON’T KNOW.
>>WHAT STRUCK ME WAS HOW ALL OF THEM HAD TO WORK JUST TO
AFFORD ONE BAG OF WHEAT, WHICH WAS 18 U.S. DOLLARS.
>>ISN’T THAT INCREDIBLE? THERE’S POOR CHILDREN WORKING.
CHILD LABOR. BUT UNDER THE TELL BAND, IT WAS
UNBELIEVABLY BAD. BUT THE OPIUM IS A PROBLEM THAT
NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH. IF WE DON’T, IT THE COUNTRY
WILL NEVER GET ON ITS FEET.>>STILL TO COME ON TODAY’S 700
CLUB, THE LIVING LEGEND OF TUSCALOOSA GOT.
THE STAR QUARTERBACK OF THE CRIMSON TIDE OPENS UP ABOUT HIS
JOURNEY TO FAME, HIS LEADERSHIP SECRETS, AND FULFILLING A
PROPHECY IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.
PLUS, THE MAN SHOCKED BY 12000 VOLTS.
THIRD-DEGREE BURNS COVERED HIS BODY.
HOW HE SURVIVED AGAINST ALL ODDS WHEN WE COME BACK.
>>>BURSTING ONTO THE NATIONAL SCENE AFTER ONE OF THE GREATEST
PERFORMANCES IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL HISTORY.
HE CAME OFF THE BENCH TO LEAD ALABAMA IN A COME-FROM-BEHIND
VICTORY IN THE 2018 CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.
AS THE NEW SEASON GETS UNDERWAY, THE CRIMSON TIDE
QUARTERBACK IS BACK FOR ANOTHER CRACK AT THE TITLE, AND HE TOLD
TOM ABOUT WHAT IT TAKES TO GET THERE.
>>Reporter: SUDDEN RISE TO PROMINENCE WAS STUNNING WHEN
THE HAWAIIAN RAISED FRESHMAN BACKUP STEPPED UP FOR THE 2018
OVERTIME GAME WINNING CHAMPIONSHIP THROW.
SINCE THEN, HOW HAS YOUR LIFE ACCELERATED?
>>MY LIFE HAS ACCELERATED IN MANY WAYS, ESPECIALLY AFTER YOU
COME OFF THE BENCH. NO ONE REALLY KNOWS WHO YOU
ARE. HOW PEOPLE TREAT YOU IS TOTALLY
DIFFERENT. HOW PEOPLE VIEW YOU IS
DIFFERENT. EVERY LITTLE THING YOU DO NOW
IS UNDER A MICROSCOPE. IT’S NOT THE SAME ANYMORE.
>>CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS IS YOUR HISTORY?
>>SOMETHING I’VE ALWAYS DREAMED OF.
WHEN I WAS A KID, WINNING A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP, I NEVER
THOUGHT I’D BE ON SPORTS ILLUSTRATED.
>>HOW HAVE YOU GROWN FROM THAT FRESHMAN SEASON?
>>A LOT MORE MATURITY TAKES PLACE, A LOT MORE OWNERSHIP FOR
TE QUARTERBACK, A LOT MORE OWNERSHIP FOR THE TEAM.
>>AND THEN IT COMES THE CHATTER, THE PRESSURE.
NFL TEAMS. HOW DO YOU COMPARTMENTALIZE
THAT AND YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE AS A COLLEGE STUDENT?
>>WELL, I THINK YOU’VE GOT TO BE ABLE TO PUSH THOSE THINGS TO
THE SIDE AND YOU GOT TO FOCUS ON WHAT’S AT STAKE NOW.
IT OPENED MY EYES TO THINGS I NEEDED TO DO IN THE FILM ROOM,
IF I CAN. IF PROFESSIONAL LIFE CALLS ME,
I WILL BE READY.>>THE STANDARD WE HAVE SET
HERE, HOW THE COACH GOES ABOUT DOING THINGS.
EVERYONE THINKS HE’S THIS GUY WHERE YOU HAVE TO FEAR HIM
BECAUSE HE’S GOING TO YELL AT YOU, BUT HE ONLY DOES THAT
BECAUSE HE EXPECTS THE BEST AND HE UNDERSTANDS THAT YOU ARE
MORE CAPABLE AND THIS IS HOW I’VE GOT TO CORRECT IT.
YOU DON’T DO IT AGAIN. IT’S JUST BEING HELD TO A
STANDARD.>>WHAT IS THE ALABAMA LIFE
OFFER? A LIFELONG HAWAIIAN RESIDENT.
>>WELL, THERE’S MANY SIMILARITIES AND THERE’S MANY
DIFFERENCES. WHEN YOU GO TO BIRMINGHAM, IT’S
ALMOST LIKE THE CITY, AND YOU GO ELSEWHERE, YOU’VE GOT THAT
COUNTRY LIFE. IN HAWAII, THE NORTH SHORE IS
KIND OF COUNTRY LIFE. WAIKIKI IS THE CITY LIFE.
I SAY A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT HERE ARE VERY TRUE TO WHAT THEY
BELIEVE. FOOTBALL HERE IS BIG.
OUT THERE AND WHY IT’S PRETTY BIG, TOO.
NOT TOO MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE.>>YOUR FORMAL EXTENDED FIRST
NAME.>>WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU?
>>WHEN I WAS LITTLE, ASKING MY PARENTS WHAT IT MEANT.
A BIRD. SO THIS BIRD WHO CIRCLES THE
MOUNTAIN IS THE PROTECTOR.>>WHAT IS THE SAMOAN WAY?
>>THE SAMOAN WAY IS RESPECT. RESPECT IS THE BIGGEST THING IN
OUR CULTURE. OUR DAD ALWAYS TOLD US GROWING
UP, PEOPLE WILL REMEMBER YOU FROM THE WAY YOU WALK, THE WAY
YOU TALK, AND FROM THE WAY YOU HOLD YOURSELF, AND THAT DOESN’T
GO JUST FOR YOU, BUT IT GOES TOWARD REPRESENTING YOUR FAMILY
AS WELL.>>THE SAMOAN DEVOTION TO
FAMILY IS REVERED. HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT VALUE
TO TEAMMATES AND FRIENDS WHOSE FAMILY LIFE IS BROKEN?
>>IT’S A LOT HARDER TO EXPLAIN IT TO THEM, ONLY BECAUSE IT
JUST COMES NATURAL TO US, AND SO I’D SAY EVERY TIME I FAMILY
IS AROUND, JUST BEING ABLE TO LOVE ON EACH OTHER, THOSE GUYS
SEEING HOW WE TREAT ONE ANOTHER, OUR BROTHERS, OUR
SISTERS, OUR MOMS, AND OUR DADS.
BEING ABLE TO TREAT THEM WITH RESPECT.
IT’S ALL ABOUT GIVING BACK AND BEING OBEDIENT TO THE THINGS
THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE.
>>FOR OUR FAMILY, IT’S A SICKLY FAITH, FAMILY, AND
FOOTBALL. EVERYTHING IS BASED ON OUR
FAITH, GROUNDED AND ROOTED IN THAT.
>>DOES IT TRANSFER OVER INTO LIFE, HAVING A VISION AND THE
FOOTING TO HANDLE?>>IT DEFINITELY DOES.
WHEN YOU ARE A QUARTERBACK, YOUR BASE IS THE BIGGEST THING.
BEING ABLE TO THROW AND FOLLOW THROUGH, HAVING YOUR GROUND
CENTERED WHERE THE BALL IS GOING AND HOW HARD IT’S GOING
TO TRAVEL. YOUR FOUNDATION IS WHAT YOU
ALWAYS REVERT BACK TO. FOR ME MY FOUNDATION IS MY
FAITH AND MY FAMILY. MY FAITH IS WHAT KEEPS ME
MOTIVATED MOTIVATED.>>I’M JUST TRYING TO PLAY
FOOTBALL AND BE ABLE TO DO TAKE CARE OF MY FAMILY AND BE ABLE
TO USE MY PLATFORM FOR THE RIGHT REASONS.
>>WHAT DO YOU AND I ARE MOST ABOUT JESUS CHRIST QUESTION
MIKE.>>THE GREATEST GIFT GOD COULD
HAVE EVER GIVEN US WAS HIS SON. IT MEANS NOT JUST A MATTER OF
HEARING WHAT JESUS CHRIST IS, IT’S A MATTER OF GETTING TO
KNOW WHO JESUS CHRIST IS TO UNDERSTAND AND FEEL THE TRUE
IDENTITY OF WHO YOU ARE BECAUSE OF THINGS THAT HE’S DONE.
YOU CAN ONLY FIND YOUR IDENTITY THROUGH HIM.
>>THE STORY WITH YOUR GRANDFATHER GOES, HE ONCE
PROCLAIMED WHEN YOU WERE AN INFANT THAT YOUR NAME WOULD
BECOME GREAT AND WORLD-RENOWNED GIVING RECOGNITION TO GOD’S
HONOR. WHEN YOU LOOK BACK ON THAT 20
SOME YEARS LATER, WHERE ARE YOU SITTING TODAY?
HOW DOES THAT RESONATE WITH YOU?
>>THAT’S ONLY SOMETHING THAT GOD COULD HAVE DONE.
MY GRANDFATHER WAS SOMEONE WHO WE REALLY GO TO BEFORE GAMES,
BEFORE TECH TALKS. GO OUT THERE WITH THE HEART OF
DAVID, JUST LITTLE THINGS LIKE THAT.
WHEN OUR GRANDFATHER WOULD TELL US THIS, WE WOULDN’T REALLY
KNOW WHAT IT MEANT. AS YOU GROW OLDER, YOU START TO
UNDERSTAND THE REVELATION OF WHAT HE’S BEEN SAYING.
THEY ALL FALL INTO ONE THING. JUST KNOWING THAT WHAT WE
BELIEVE IN IS SOMETHING MUCH BIGGER THAN JUST US.
>>I LIKE THAT SIGN IN THE CHURCH THAT SAID FOOTBALL IS
GREAT BUT GOD IS GREATER. I THINK HE KNOWS THAT TO THE
COURT AS HIS VERY BEING, DON’T YOU?
STILL TO COME, THE FATHER WHO FELT THE FULL FORCE OF A DOWNED
POWER LINE. IT HAD TO BE PRIED FROM THE
SCENE WITH A PLASTIC SHOVEL. YOU’LL HAVE TO SEE HIS SURVIVAL
TO BELIEVE IT. AND THEN LATER, YOUR QUESTIONS,
HONEST ANSWERS. CAN ANGELS FIGHT DEMON SPIRITS
THAT LIVE IN PEOPLE? STAY TUNED FOR PATHS RESPONSE
AFTER THIS.>>WELCOME BACK TO WASHINGTON.
THE GUNMAN WHO KILLED SEVEN PEOPLE IN WEST TEXAS PURCHASED
HIS GUN THROUGH A LOOPHOLE. THE MAN TRYING TO BUY A GUN
BACK IN 2014 BUT FAILED THE FEDERAL BACKGROUND CHECK FOR
HEALTH REASONS, HE EVADED THE PROCESS BY BUYING HIS WEAPON
THROUGH A PRIVATE SALE. MEANWHILE, WALMART IS
ANNOUNCING IT WILL NO LONGER SELL AMMUNITION FOR HANDGUNS
AND SHORT BILL RIFLES. MORE THAN 20 PEOPLE DIED IN A
MASS SHOOTING AT AN EL PASO WALMART IN JULY.
>>>THE TRUMPET ADMINISTRATION PLANS TO MOVE $3.6 BILLION THIS
WEEK FROM MILITARY CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS HERE AND ABROAD TO
BUILD THE U.S.-MEXICO BORDER WALL.
DEFENSE SECRETARY CALLED THE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI TO DETAIL
THE CASH GRAB. LAWMAKERS WHOSE DISTRICTS WILL
TAKE A HIT ALSO RECEIVED COURTESY CALLS.
PRESIDENT TRUMP DECLARED A NATIONAL EMERGENCY IN FEBRUARY
ORDERING FUNDING FROM OTHER FEDERAL ACCOUNTS TO BUILD THE
WALL, INCLUDING THE TREASURY AND DEFENSE DEPARTMENTS.
YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY GOING TO OUR
WEBSITE. PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK WITH
MORE OF THE 700 CLUB RIGHT AFTER THIS.
>>WELL, ONE SECOND JACK SHORT WAS ABOUT TO CLIMB ON THE FARM
COMBINE. THE NEXT SECOND 12000 VOLTS OF
ELECTRICITY WORTH ROOTING — WERE SHOOTING THROUGH HIS BODY.
HE TOLD THE FAMILY HE WOULD NEVER SURVIVE.
WHAT HE DID. YOU’RE ABOUT TO SEE.
>>Reporter: THE SOYBEAN HARVEST WAS GOING AS EXPECTED
FOR ZACK SHORT AND HIS CREW UNTIL A CALL CAME OVER THE
RADIO THAT A COMBINE HAD STARTED SMOKING.
WHEN ZACK ARRIVED, HE WENT TO CLIMB ON A COMBINE TO
INVESTIGATE, BUT NO ONE REALIZED IT HAD COME IN CONTACT
WITH THE LOW HANGING POWERLINES. 12000 VOTES OF ELECTRICITY SHOT
THROUGH ZACH’S BODY. HIS HAND STILL GRIPPING THE
LADDER, THE CREW USED A PLASTIC SHOVEL TO PRY HIM FREE AND
CALLED 911. EMS SHANE PEARSON RESPONDED TO
THE CALL.>>THE BIGGEST THING I NOTICED
WAS HIS FEET. HIS WORKBOOTS HAD KIND OF BEEN
BLOWN OPEN. HE WAS IN CRITICAL CONDITION AT
THAT POINT.>>ZACH WAS TRANSPORTED TO THE
NEAREST HOSPITAL. AT THE TIME HIS WIFE JODY WAS
AT HOME WITH THEIR ONE-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER.
>>I GOT A PHONE CALL THAT ZACH HAD BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT.
MY FIRST QUESTION WAS, IS HE ALIVE?
I HAD NO IDEA HOW BAD THE ACCIDENT WAS.
IT WAS HIS MOM ON THE PHONE, AND SHE SAID SHE DIDN’T KNOW.
>>JODY RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL WITH ZACK’S PARENTS.
>>YOU COULD JUST SMELL BURNT FLESH EVERYWHERE.
>>THEY TOLD US HE BE FLOWN TO A DIFFERENT HOSPITAL.
>>HE WAS LIFE LIGHTED TO THE HOSPITAL IN WICHITA, KANSAS AT
THEIR BIRD CENTER. DR. ROBERT BINGAMAN WAS THE
ATTENDING PHYSICIAN.>>THEY WERE SOME OF THE
DEEPEST ELECTRICAL INJURIES I HAD EVER SEEN.
BOTH OF THE LARGE EXTREMITIES WERE SEVERELY BURNED.
ACTUALLY, AREAS ON HIS FEET AND ANKLES WERE CHARRED.
THE CHANCES OF LIVING WERE NO BETTER THAN 50/50.
>>DOCTORS PUT ZACH IN A MEDICALLY INDUCED COMA AND
WORKED AROUND THE CLOCK TO TREAT HIS BURNS.
THEY WERE ABLE TO STABILIZE HIM, BUT HE WAS IN CRITICAL
CONDITION. JODY PRAYED AND SPREAD THE WORD
OVER SOCIAL MEDIA.>>FARMERS THAT LIVE AROUND
HERE WOULD STOP THEIR FARM EQUIPMENT EVERY DAY AT 10:00
AND 4:00 AND PRAY FOR ZACH.>>THREE DAYS LATER HE WENT
INTO CARDIAC ARREST.>>THE NURSES PULLED ME IN THE
ROOM, AND THEY WERE PERFORMING CHEST COMPRESSIONS ON HIM.
>>WE WERE JUST BEHIND HIM RALLYING SAYING, COME ON, COME
BACK TO US, ZACH. FINALLY, THE NURSE HAD SAID,
WE’VE GOT A PULSE.>>BUT AS QUICKLY AS ZACK’S
HEART RECOVERED, HIS KIDNEYS BEGAN SHUTTING DOWN, AND HIS
LUNGS STARTED FILLING WITH FLUID.
>>THE DOCTOR TOLD US, HE’S NOT GOING TO MAKE IT.
HE, BASICALLY, TOLD US TO TELL HIM GOODBYE.
WE TOOK OUR DAUGHTER IN AND TOLD HER THAT HE WAS GOING TO
HEAVEN.>>FRIENDS AND FAMILY GATHERED
AT THE HOSPITAL AND WAITED FOR HIM TO PASS.
THEY SOON REALIZED GOD WAS STILL AT WORK.
>>BLOOD PRESSURE STARTED TO COME UP, AND THE OXYGEN
SATURATION LEVELS STARTED TO COME UP.
HE BEGAN TO STABILIZE.>>THE DOCTOR SAID, I THINK
HE’S GOING TO MAKE A LIAR OUT OF ME.
HE’S GETTING BETTER.>>GOD WAS IN THE ROOM WITH US.
HE WAS THERE, AND HE WAS AND PULLING PEOPLE’S — AND HE WAS
ANSWERING PEOPLE’S PRAYERS.>>THERE’S NO DOUBT IN MY MIND
THAT GOD TOUCHED US THAT NIGHT AND TURN THINGS AROUND.
>>OVER THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS, ZACH CONTINUE TO IMPROVE.
>>HIS KIDNEYS STARTED WORKING IN HIS LUNGS STARTED TO EMPTY.
THE DOCTOR WAS LIKE, I’VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE.
>>UNFORTUNATELY, DOCTORS HAD TO AMPUTATE ZACH’S LOWERS
BECAUSE OF INFECTION. IT WOULD SAVE HIS LIFE, BUT NOW
THEY HAD ANOTHER CONCERN. WHETHER HE’D SUFFERED BRAIN
DAMAGE. THE ONLY WAY TO FIND OUT WAS TO
BRING HIM OUT OF THE COMA.>>WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE
HOSPITAL, IT WAS LIKE I HAD A WHOLE BUNCH OF DREAMS.
I KIND OF KNEW WHAT HAPPENED, BUT NOT REALLY.
AT THE SAME TIME, MY WIFE WAS THE FIRST ONE TO COME IN THERE.
>>MY FIRST QUESTION WAS, DO YOU REMEMBER ME?
OF COURSE, HE SAID, I’M NOT GOING TO FORGET YOU AND
BRINLEY.>>AND THEN SHE SAID, WHENEVER
YOU GOT SHOCKED, THAT’S RIGHT THERE IT CLICKED.
I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED.>>THE NEXT THREE MONTHS WOULD
BE HARD AS HE STRUGGLED THROUGH EXTENSIVE PHYSICAL THERAPY AND
MULTIPLE SURGERIES.>>I WOULD DEFTLY GET ANGRY AND
BREAK DOWN QUITE A BIT. I JUST KEPT PRAYING AND
THOUGHT, YOU KNOW, THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT
CARE ABOUT ME. I HAVE A LOT TO LIVE FOR STILL.
I JUST GOT TO KEEP TRYING. GOD KIN OF SHOWED ME THE
LIGHT.>>THEN ON VALENTINE’S DAY ZACH
WAS RELEASED TO GO HOME. HIS TOWN WELCOMED HIM IN THE
STREETS.>>I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT.
THERE’S PEOPLE OUT THERE WITH SIGNS SAYING, WE LOVE YOU,
ZACH.>>HOW ARE WE GOING TO THANK
ALL OF THESE PEOPLE? I SAID, FROM WHAT I CAN SEE,
THEY WANT TO THANK YOU, BECAUSE YOU BROUGHT THEM BACK TO THEIR
FAITH.>>HE’S BECOME ACCUSTOMED TO
HIS NEW LEGS AND IS THANKFUL TO GET BACK TO FARMING AND BEING A
HUSBAND AND A FATHER. IN FACT, HE AND JODY ARE
EXPECTING THEIR SECOND CHILD, A BOY.
>>IF IT WASN’T FOR ALL THE PLAYERS, GOD WOULDN’T HAVE
HEARD THAT WE NEED A MIRACLE. MANY, MANY, MANY MIRACLES.
WE WOULDN’T HAVE RECEIVED THE MIRACLE WE GOT.
>>YOU LOOK AT HOW BAD MY INJURIES WERE, AND THERE’S
NOTHING THAT EXPLAINS.>>THERE’S NO EXPLANATION
EXCEPT THAT GOD DID IT. NOW, SHARON FROM COLORADO
SUFFERED FROM ARTHRITIS AND A TORN MENISCUS.
TERRIBLE PAIN IN BOTH KNEES. SHE HAD TO USE A CANE TO WALK.
EVERYTHING CHANGED WHEN SHE WAS WATCHING OUR PROGRAM.
WENDY SAID, YOU ARE PUTTING YOUR HANDS IN YOUR KNEES, AND
YOU ARE CRYING TO GOD. NOW, DID YOU KNOW SHARON?
>>NO, NOT AT ALL.>>YOU SAID THAT SHE IS NOW
PAIN-FREE. ISN’T THAT GREAT?
>>CANE FREE AND PAIN-FREE. LINDEN — LINDA SUFFER FROM
MIGRAINES FOR OVER 40 YEARS. THE MIGRAINES CAUSED HER TO
THROW UP AND EVEN PASS OUT. HER PRAYER WAS TO LET SOMEONE
HAVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE FOR ME.
THAT PRAYER WAS ANSWERED ONE DAY WHILE SHE WAS WATCHING THE
SHOW. PAT, YOU SAID SOMEONE HAS
MIGRAINE HEADACHES, YOUR NAME IS LINDA, AND GOD’S HEALING YOU
RIGHT NOW. LINDA RECEIVED THAT WORD OF
KNOWLEDGE AND SHE KNOW LONGER HAS MIGRAINES.
SHE SAYS, I WANT TO GIVE PAT A HUG.
WELL, YOU’LL HAVE TO COME HERE TO VIRGINIA BEACH.
>>I’M WAITING FOR A HUG.>>WHEREVER YOU ARE, THOSE TWO
PEOPLE, GOD LOVES THEM, BUT THEY ARE JUST PEOPLE JUST LIKE
YOU ARE. GOD LOVES YOU, TOO.
SO WE WANT TO PRAY. WE ARE GOING TO JOIN TOGETHER,
AND WHEREVER YOU ARE, LET’S RECEIVE AN ANSWER.
FATHER, I THANK YOU. THESE TWO ANSWERS TO PRAYER
THAT YOU’VE HEARD. THANK YOU FOR THAT MAN WHO WAS
NEAR DEATH AND YOU BROUGHT HIM BACK FROM DEATH AND GAVE HIM

THIS AUDIENCE WHO ARE SUFFERING.
SOMEONE HAS A CANCEROUS TUMOR IN THE ABDOMEN, AND IF YOU WILL
PLACE YOUR HAND THEY ARE THAT TUMOR IS GOING AWAY AND GOD IS,
YOU’LL FEEL LIKE LIGHTNING GOING THROUGH YOU, YOUR MAIN
HOLD.>>THERE’S SOMEONE THAT HAS A
STRANGE TINGLING IN YOUR RIGHT HAND.
IT’S VERY PAINFUL AND GOD IS HEALING YOU.

FROM SCARRING. I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S FROM

PAT?>>WELL, A MONSTROUS EARTHQUAKE
HIT MEXICO. A THIRD OF ALL HOMES IN ONE
CITY COLLAPSED. A THIRD OF THEM.
THIS FAMILY BARELY ESCAPED BEFORE THEIR HOME FELL DURING
WHAT SHE CALLED THE LONGEST NIGHT OF THEIR LIVES.
>>Reporter: WHEN A MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE HIT MEXICO, THIS
FAMILY BARELY GOT OUT ALIVE BEFORE IT COLLAPSED TO THE
GROUND.>>THAT WAS THE LONGEST NIGHT
OF OUR LIVES. EVERY HOUR SEEMED LIKE AN
ETERNITY. THE AFTERSHOCKS WERE CONSTANT.
I CRIED ALL NIGHT.>>THEN A TEAM FROM OPERATION
BLESSING CAME WITH A PLAN TO BUILD NOT JUST ONE BUT DOZENS
OF NEW HOMES FOR EARTHQUAKE VICTIMS.
CARL IS A VOLUNTEER BUILDING A HOME FOR THIS FAMILY.
IT’S NOT THE FIRST TIME SHE’S DONE DISASTER RELIEF.
>>BEING IN MY OWN COUNTRY WITH MY OWN PEOPLE IS SOMETHING
SPECIAL.>>I FEEL BLESSED TO KNOW CARLA
AND THE OTHER VOLUNTEERS. I LOVE THEM VERY MUCH.
>>SHE WANTED TO SHOW THE VOLUNTEERS HOW MUCH THEIR HELP

BETTER, AND THAT MADE US FEEL CONFIDENT, LOVED, AND

THEIR NEW HOME, SHE CAN FEEL HOW MUCH WE CARE ABOUT HER.
>>THANK YOU FOR THE HOPE YOU HAVE GIVEN US.

TIME, ONE FAMILY AT A TIME, ONE HOME AT A TIME.

IT’S EASY. IT’S A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.
700-7000. IT’S EASY TO REMEMBER.
WHAT HAVE YOU GOT?>>YOU READY?
WE GOT SOME QUESTIONS. THIS IS FROM DARLA.
WE KNOW THE STORY OF AN ANGEL TAKING A MESSAGE FROM DANIEL,
BUT WHO WAS HINDERED BY SATAN’S ANGEL?
IS IT POSSIBLE FOR ANGELS TO FIGHT HUMAN HUMAN DEMONS?
>>YOU KNOW, THERE WAS AN ANGEL FROM GOD WITH THE MESSAGE TO
HIS SERVANT, AND THERE WAS OF PRINCE OF PERSIA THAT WAS
HOLDING THAT, SO WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A DEMON PRINCE THAT WAS
HOLDING BACK. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE BIG
GUYS. YOU SEE, SO IF I HAVE A LITTLE
TEENY DEMON INSIDE OF ME, IF I HAD TO GET AN ANGEL TO COME
DOWN, THE ANSWER IS AS A CHILD OF GOD, SPEAK THE WORD AND
COMMAND IT. IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I COMMAND
YOU SATAN AND THE FORCES OF EVIL TO LEAVE ME ALONE.
THAT’S ALL YOU NEED. YOU DON’T NEED SOME BIG ANGEL
TO HELP YOU. IT’S NICE TO HAVE THEM, BUT
YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT A COUNTRY. WE TALKED ABOUT THE PRINCE OF
PERSIA, A BIG, BIG SUPERMAN.>>THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT
PRINCIPALITIES.>>THAT’S EXACTLY RIGHT.
YOU DON’T NEED ONE OF THOSE FOR YOU.
>>OKAY. SHEILA SAYS LONG AGO WHEN I
STARTED TAKING PROBIOTICS, THEY WERE REFRIGERATED BECAUSE OF
BEING LIFE ORGANISMS. THEY ARE ALWAYS HARD TO FIND
REFRIGERATED PROBIOTICS. MY QUESTION IS, ARE THE
NONREFRIGERATED AS GOOD AS THE REFRIGERATED?
>>I DIDN’T THINK SO, BUT THESE REFRIGERATED ARE VERY
SENSITIVE. THEY ARE ALIVE, AND YOU CAN GET
ABOUT 50 BILLION OF THEM, AND I LIKE THE REFRIGERATED KIND.
APPARENTLY, IN THE.>>>THEY ARE SO SENSITIVE, SO
THERE IS A PROBIOTIC THAT IS MORE STABLE, AND YOU CAN GET
THAT. SO ACCORDING TO OUR DR., THAT’S
JUST AS GOOD.>>SO JUST AS GOOD
NONREFRIGERATED.>>YET, BUT I’M STILL GOING TO
THE REFRIGERATED. THEY ARE LIVE.
>>LAURA WRITES IN, DID JESUS TO SEND, AND WHERE IN THE BIBLE
DOES IT SAY THAT HE DID?>>READ IN EPHESIANS, CHAPTER
4. I WAS IN THE DRESSING ROOM WITH THE PRODUCER.
I SAID, WILL YOU PLEASE FIND THAT?
HE SAYS HE ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN AND GAVE GIFTS TO THEM, BUT IF
HE ASCENDED, AND IT’S IN EPHESIANS.
CAN YOU BELIEVE GOOGLE? YOU JUST PUNCH UP ONE OF THOSE
THINGS AND IT GIVES YOU THE SCRIPTURE.
>>I DO IT ALL THE TIME. BUT THERE ARE OTHER PLACES
WHERE JESUS WENT AND PREACHED TO THOSE IN CAPTIVITY.
THERE WAS A TIME, YOU SEE HE WAS ON THE CROSS.
ABOUT THREE DAYS BEFORE HIS RESURRECTION.
IT’S INTERESTING. THAT’S WHAT IT SAYS.
>>YOU SEE A VANITY PLATE WITH A SCRIPTURE ON IT, AND YOU
DON’T KNOW IT RIGHT AWAY SO YOU GOT TO GOOGLE IT.
NOT WHILE YOU ARE DRIVING, BUT WHEN YOU ARE PARKED.
>>JOHN THREE: 16.>>CHERYL REDSKIN, I DON’T
UNDERSTAND FIRST CORINTHIANS, 11.
IN JESUS DAY, HE AND THE MEN HAD LONG HAIR.
TODAY AS CHRISTIANS WE WOMEN DON’T COVER OUR HEADS WHEN
PRAYING.>>YOU KNOW, I READ THAT
QUESTION. PAUL WROTE IN LENGTH ABOUT A
WOMAN HAS TO COVER HER HEAD BECAUSE OF THE ANGELS AND
THINGS LIKE THAT. I THINK THAT WAS HEBREW CUSTOM.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN A PICTURE OF JESUS WITH SHORT HAIR.
CAN YOU IMAGINE A CREW CUT JESUS?
NOT ANYONE. I THINK THE IDEA OF A WOMAN
BEING UNDER SUBMISSION TO A MAN AND THAT WHOLE THING ON THEIR
HEAD IS A SIGN THAT I MARRIOTT AND I’M UNDER THE SUBMISSION TO
MY HUSBAND.>>THIS IS MY SIGN RIGHT HERE.
>>MY HUSBAND IS IN THE AUDIENCE TODAY.
HI, HONEY.>>I THINK THAT’S PART OF
JEWISH CUSTOMS. I DON’T KNOW WHERE THAT FITS IN
WITH TODAY, BUT I DON’T THINK IT’S ANYTHING I KNOW OF THAT
DOES THAT. ANYHOW.
THAT’S WHAT I THINK. FOR HE HIMSELF IS OUR=PIECE.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US.
SEE YOU TOMORROW.
