caption

>>> HELLO EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO THE 700 CLUB. I ALSO WANT TO SAY WELCOME TO MY COHOST ANDREW KNOX, ALSO A GOOD FRIEND . MY COWORKERS ARE TAKING A COUPLE OF WEEKS OFF. IT IS GREAT TO WORK WITH YOU. >> THANK YOU. WELL, BIG NEWS FROM THE MIDDLE EAST. MORE THAN 1000 ROCKETS WERE FIRED AT ISRAEL DURING THREE DAYS OF FIGHTING. THE PALESTINIAN ISLAMIC JIHAD WAS DOING THIS. FOR NOW, THE CEASE-FIRE SEEMS TO BE HOLDING. >> THE CONFLICT BEGAN WHEN ISRAEL RECEIVED INTELLIGENCE OF A POTENTIAL ATTACK. THEY MADE A PREEMPTIVE DRAG. CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS FROM THE GAZA BORDER.

>> Reporter: ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER MET WITH THE DEFENSE OFFICIALS, MARKING THE END OF OPERATION BREAKING DAWN. THE ACTION STARTED ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON. >> IT BEGAN WHEN WE RECEIVED INTELLIGENCE, CERTIFIABLE INTELLIGENCE THAT A TERRORIST GROUP WAS MOVING TOWARD THE BORDER WITH ISRAEL. THEY HAVE LARGE ANTI-TAG MISSILES THAT WERE GOING TO BE FIRED AT CARS AND SCHOOL BUSES. WE WERE SUCCESSFUL IN ELIMINATING THAT THREAT BEFORE THEY COULD CARRY OUT THE TERROR ATTACK. >> Reporter: THE TARGETED STRIKES ALSO PULLED THE MILITARY HAD, THERE IS A ISLAMIC JIHAD IN NORTHERN GAZA. THEY ALSO HAD OTHER TERRORIST SITES. [ SIREN ] THE TERRORISTS RESPONDED BY FIRING HUNDREDS OF ROCKETS FROM GAZAN CIVILIAN AREAS INTO ISRAELI COMMUNITIES NEAR THE BORDER. THIS WAS UP THE COAST IN TEL AVIV AND IS JUST OUTSIDE OF JERUSALEM AS WELL. YOU CAN SEE ANOTHER ONE GOING UP RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS AN AREA WHERE IT IS STILL GOING OFF. YOU CAN SEE THAT RIGHT NOW. YOU CAN SEE THE STREAKS OF THE SKY. >> Reporter: WE WITNESSED THE IRON DOME ANTI-MISSILES SYSTEM INTERCEPTING OTHER ROCKETS. ACCORDING TO A SPOKESMAN, THE IRON DOME HAD A 97% SUCCESS RATE. NEARLY 200 OF THE ROCKETS WERE FIRED BY THE PALESTINIAN ISLAMIC JIHAD. THIS LANDED WITHIN GAZA, CALLING INJURIES AND DEATHS. ON THE ISRAELI SIDE, MOST COMMUNITIES HAD BOMB SHELTERS.

THIS WAS LIKE THE 20 PROVIDED BY CBN ISRAEL IN STRATEGIC LOCATIONS SUCH AS THE COMMUNITY JUST FOUR MILES FROM THE GAZA BORDER. [ FOREIGN LANGUAGE ] >> Translator: WE HAD MANY SURPRISES. YOUR ON THE WAY TO SOMEPLACE AND WE HAVE A BOMB SHELTER ON THE WAY. IT CALMS THE CHILDREN AND GIVES THEM THE SECURITY TO GO TO THE TENNIS COURT AND PLAY A LITTLE. >> Reporter: THE FRONT LINES OF THE MISSION ARE HERE ON THE ISRAELI GAZA POURS HER.

BEHIND THE SCENES, THE MAIN PLAYERS ARE THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN. >> IN THESE CONVERSATIONS, IRAN'S GOING TO PLAY A VERY VERY IMPORTANT POLITICAL ROLE IN THE REGION. THIS WILL BE FOR MANY MANY YEARS. JIHADIST ONE OF THE MAIN OBSTACLES. >> IF YOU READ THEIR CHARTER, IT SAYS THAT THEY CANNOT ALLOW THE EXISTENCE OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL. THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO DO. >> THE WERE DECIMATED THE PALESTINIAN ISLAMIC JIHAD LEADERSHIP. SEVERAL SENIOR COMMANDERS DIED IN THE FIGHTING.

HAMAS WHICH RULES GAZA HAS THE SAME ROLE AS THE PALESTINIAN ISLAMIC JIHAD. THIS TIME, HAMAS CHOSE TO STAY OUT OF THIS CONFLICT. ANDREW? >> THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. WHY DID HAMAS STAY OUT OF THIS FIGHT? >> Reporter: WELL ANDREW, THAT IS A BIG QUESTION EVERYBODY WAS ASKING. WHERE THEY GOING TO COME INTO THE CONFLICT? LAST YEAR THEY SUFFERED A LOT WITH THE WAR WITH ISRAEL.

THAT WAS IN MAY 2021. THEY SHARE THE SAME GOALS AS THE PALESTINIAN ISLAMIC JIHAD. THEY HAVE THEIR OWN CALCULATIONS. THEY HAD TO DECIDE IF THIS WAS THE RIGHT TIME FOR THEM. THEY ARE REBUILDING THEIR OWN ARSENAL APP BUT AFTER LAST YEAR'S WERE, THEY ARE CHOOSING NOT TO ENTER THE CONFLICT. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THEY STAND THE CONFLICT BECAUSE IF THEY DID NOT, WE WOULD BE IN A WARTIME SITUATION. >> NOW THAT THE THREE DAY WAR IS OVER, WHAT IMPACT DOES IT HAVE ON ISRAEL AND THE ENTIRE REGION AS A WHOLE? >> Reporter: WELL, FIRST OF ALL, IT HAD A BIG IMPACT TO ISLAMIC JIHAD. THAT WAS THEIR SECOND-LARGEST TERROR GROUP INSIDE GAZA. THEY WERE DEGRADED SUBSTANTIALLY.

IT HURT A LOT BECAUSE PALESTINIAN HAVE THE ISLAMIC JIHAD AS THE MAIN SPONSOR IN THE REGION. IN THE WIDER REGION, THERE ARE SEVERAL COUNTRIES THAT CRITICIZE ISRAEL BUT THEY DID NOT BREAK ANY TIES. THAT >> THOUSANDS WERE AT THE WHILE PRAYING. OBVIOUSLY, THEY WERE PRAYING FOR AN END TO THE WAR BETWEEN THE PALESTINIAN ISLAMIC JIHAD AND ISRAEL. >> THE LAST QUESTION, THE IRON DOME DEFENSE MISSILE SYSTEM, IT IS A GAME CHANGER. WE SAW FOOTAGE OF IT IN YOUR REPORT. WHAT IS IT LIKE TO BE THERE WATCHING IT IN ACTION? >> Reporter: IT IS AMAZING ANDREW. WE WERE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD. AND, WE SAW THESE TWO INTERCEPTORS GO UP. AND WE KNEW THAT THEY WERE GOING TO GO AFTER SOME OF THE ROCKETS COMING IN FROM GAZA. IT IS REALLY INCREDIBLE TO SEE IT IN ACTION. WHAT WE DID, YOU STOP THE CAR AND YOU GET ON THE GROUND. WE STARTED DOING A FACEBOOK LIVE AS WE WATCHED THEM.

JUST TO SEE THEM, IT IS THE EQUIVALENT OF A BULLET HITTING A BULLET. WHAT IT DOES IS A GAME CHANGER. IT REDUCES THE DANGER OF THE ROCKET THREAT DRAMATICALLY. IT HELPS POLITICIANS MAKE WISE DECISIONS. IT ALSO SAVES ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS LIVES. IF THEY DID NOT HAVE THE IRON DOME, THEY WOULD BE FORCED TO GO TO A GROUND CAMPAIGN WHICH WOULD PUT BOTH ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS AT RISK. THAT IS WHY IT IS ON THIS LEVEL AND A GAME CHANGER IN THE REGION. >> CHRIS, WE WILL PRAY FOR YOU AND YOUR TEAM AND EVERYONE CHECK IN THE REGION. BE SAFE. >>> SENATE DEMOCRATS ARE CELEBRATING A LEGISLATIVE VICTORY. CRITICS SAY IT IS GOING TO COME BACK TO HAUNT THEM. WE HAVE THAT STORY FROM THE CBN NEWSROOM. >> Reporter: THE BIDEN'S FRUSTRATIONS IS THE NEW BILL FIGHTS CLIMATE CHANGE, LOWERS MEDICAL COSTS AND REDUCES INFLATION. CRITICS WORN IT INCLUDES TENS OF BILLIONS FROM THE IRS AS WELL AS TAX HIKES. THIS WOULD ONLY MAKE A BAD ECONOMY WORSE. WE HAVE MORE WITH THIS STORY. >> Reporter: DOES CALLING A BILL SOMETHING MAKE IT TRUE? THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION IS CALLING THE LEGISLATION THE INFLATION REDUCTION ACT.

CRITICS SAY THAT IT WILL ACTUALLY INCREASE INFLATION. WITH THE SENATE SPLIT 50-50 ALONG PARTY LINES, KAMALA HARRIS CASTS THE TIE-BREAKING VOTE. >> THE VICE PRESIDENT VOTES IN THE AFFIRMATIVE. THE BILL AS AMENDED IS PASSED. >> Reporter: DEMOCRATS CELEBRATED THE $740 BILLION LEGISLATION CALLING IT HISTORIC. >> THE BILL REDUCES INFLATION. IT LOWERS COSTS. AND IT CREATES MILLIONS OF MANUFACTURING JOBS. IT ENHANCES OUR ENERGY SECURITY. IT IS THE BOLDEST CLIMATE PACKAGE IN U.S. HISTORY. ♪ THE BILL IS SUPPOSED TO/PRESCRIPTION DRUG COSTS. IT WILL FIND GREEN ENERGY WITH A MASSIVE INJECTION OF $370 BILLION.

IT WILL RAISE THE MINIMUM CORPORATE TAX TO 15%. IT WOULD ALSO INCREASE THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE'S BUDGETS BY SIXFOLD. THIS ALLOWS IT TO HIRE 80,000 MORE AUDITORS AND AGENTS. THE BILL'S NAME CLAIMS THAT IT LOWERS INFLATION. ACCORDING TO RESEARCHERS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA'S WARD BUDGET MODEL, THE INFLATION REDUCTION ACT WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO CHANGE INFLATION IN THE LONG-TERM. IT WILL ACTUALLY ADD TO INFLATION UNTIL 2024. >> IT SAYS IT WOULD REDUCE THE DEFICIT BY $100 MILLION. WE ARE GOING TO SPEND ALMOST $1 TRILLION. IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. INFLATION WILL MAKE EVERYTHING WORSE. >> Reporter: THE CONSERVATIVE TEXT NATION SAYS THE BILL WOULD INCREASE TAXES ON THOSE IN EVERY INCOME GROUP AND IT WOULD REDUCE ECONOMIC GROWTH. >> AMERICAN FAMILIES ACTUALLY SEE THE IMPACT OF WHAT HAPPENS WHENEVER YOU PUT NEW TAX IS ON OUR ECONOMY.

THEY TALK ABOUT IT BEING A BIG CORPORATION, A BIG CORPORATION THAT RAISES PRICES. >> Reporter: REPUBLICAN SAY DEMOCRATS WILL PAY THE PRICE IN THIS FALL'S MIDTERM ELECTIONS FOR PASSING THE MASSIVE SPENDING BILL. >> THE DEMOCRATS KNOW THEY ARE IN TROUBLE WHEN THEY HAD 2+ THE INFLATION REDUCTION ACT. THAT WOULD SUGGEST THAT THERE WAS INFLATION AND WE ALL KNOW THAT THERE IS. >> Reporter: THIS BILL HAS TO CLEAR THE HOUSE BEFORE IT GETS TO JOE BIDEN'S DESK. DEMOCRATS ARE HOPING TO WRAP IT UP THIS WEEK. DALE HURD, CBN NEWS. >>> WE TURN TO INDIANA WHERE THE GOVERNOR HAS SIGNED A NEW TOTAL ABORTION BAN INTO LAW. THIS HAPPENED ON FRIDAY MAKING IT THE FIRST DAY TO APPROVE ABORTION RESTRICTIONS IN THE SUPREME COURT OVERTURNED ROE VERSUS WADE. >> WE HAVE HEARD FROM A NUMBER OF INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE PROTECT CHILDREN.

PROTECT LIFE. >> PROTESTERS ON BOTH SIDES TURNED OUT TO TUESDAY'S REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED LEGISLATOR. THE LAW FORBIDS ABORTIONS FROM THE TIME A FERTILIZED EGG IMPLANTS IN THE UTERUS. EXCEPTIONS WOMEN HIS FATHER'S LIFE IS AT RISK AND IS CASES OF AND IN IS AS WELL AS FATAL ABNORMALITIES IN THE FETUS ABORTIONS CAN ONLY BE PERFORMED IN HOSPITALS OR OUTPATIENT CENTERS ONLY BY HOSPITALS. LAST WEEK, KANSAS VOTERS REJECTED AN EFFORT TO AMEND PROTECT LIFE. 15 OTHER STATES ALREADY HAVE LAWS IN PLACE TO ROLLBACK ABORTION. THIS WAS COURT RULED IN THE ISSUE. THE BAN TAKES EFFECT ON SEPTEMBER 15. >> WE GO FROM THE SUPREME COURT BACK TO THE STATES AND WE WILL SEE HOW THE STATES ROLL THIS OUT. WE ARE SEEING A PARTICULAR LEGISLATIVE. ITITE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY. >> IF WE WOULD TELL THE STORY PROGRESS IN AMERICA, I THINK WE WOULD BE HELPFUL. >>> THEN, A SOLDIER AT 14, A P.O.W. AT 16, NEEDED TEENAGER WHO SURVIVED THE HORRORS OF WORLD WAR TWO. THIS IS TOMORROW. >>>'S DAY CONNECTED WITH CBN NEWS ALL DAY ACROSS ALL PLATFORMS. >>> THE RECENT SURGE IN COVID IS LEVELING OFF.'S DILL, QUICK, ACCURATE TESTING IS NEEDED WHENEVER LARGE GROUPS OF PEOPLE GATHER TOGETHER.

THAT IS WHERE MAN'S BEST FRIEND COMES IN. A VIRGINIA COMPANY TRAINED DOGS TO SNIFF OUT THE COVID VIRUS IN A MATTER OF SECONDS. MARK WARREN BRINGS US A FIRSTHAND LOOK AT THESE CANINES IN ACTION. >> YOU WANT TO PLAY. YOU WANT TO PLAY. >> Reporter: THIS INSTRUCTOR PLAYS WITH A GERMAN SHEPHERD ELGIN MOUNTAIN MIX. IT IS ONE OF DOESN'T THAT AMERICAN K LINE INTERDICTION. THIS VIRGINIA COMPANY SAYS IT HAS WORLD WORLD CANINE SOLUTIONS. PAUL HAS LED EFFORTS HERE FOR 18 YEARS. >> WE NORMALLY TAKE TALKS AND CONDITION THEM TO FIND EXPLOSIVES, NARCOTICS, BEDBUGS, AND OTHER THINGS.

IF IT HAS AN ODOR, WE CAN TRAIN A DOG TO FIND IT. >> THESE DOGS NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE US. WE DO NOT DESERVE THESE DOGS. THEIR CAPABILITIES, I THINK THAT THEY ARE ONLY SCRATCHING THE SURFACE ON THE THINGS THE DOGS ARE ABLE TO DO FOR US. >> Reporter: THE IDEA TO TRAIN DOGS TO DETECT COVID CAME AFTER HEARING A COMPETITOR DISCUSSED THE CONCEPT. I MULLED IT OVER. >> I WAS LED BY THE SPIRIT. THE TEAM GOT OUR HEADS TOGETHER AND SAID HERE IS THE METHODOLOGY THAT WE COULD USE. IT IS LIKE A JIGSAW. WE DID NOT USE URINE OR SWEAT OR PROTEIN.

WE WENT WITH ACTUALLY A SAMPLE FROM THE MOUTH. THIS WAS PRETTY MUCH LIKE THE SNAP TEST IF YOU WILL. >> Reporter: HOSPITALS WERE ABLE TO GET SAMPLES WHO ARE CURRENTLY BEING TREATED FOR COVID. WE GOT THE CHEEK SWABS. WHAT WE ENDED UP DOING WAS TRAINING THE DOGS TO RECOGNIZE THE SMELL OF THE CHEEK SWAB FIRST. AFTER THAT, THEY INTRODUCED THE DOGS TO THE SMELL OF A PRINCE SALIVA WITHOUT COVID. >> WE GET THE DOGS TO DISCRIMINATE BETWEEN THE SMELLS OF SOMEBODY INFECTED VERSUS NON- EFFECTIVE WITH AND ASTONISH 66 FULL RATE. >> THEIR ABILITY TO FIND THIS STUFF, IT IS MORE THAN 95% ACCURATE. >> Reporter: ANDREW IS IN CHARGE OF TRAINING AND EDUCATION. >> I WAS ONE OF THE SKEPTICS. I SAID THERE IS NO WAY. I HAVE DONE THIS A LONG TIME AND I DO NOT BELIEVE IT IS POSSIBLE.

I AM GLAD THAT THEY PROVED ME WRONG. WATCHING THEM ACTUALLY GO OUT AND HAVE ACCURACY, IT IS ASTOUNDING. >> Reporter: ONE OF THE PRIMARY BENEFITS FOR USING DOGS TO DETECT COVID IS SPEED. THE STAFF SAY A DOG CAN SCREEN 4240 PEOPLE IN LESS THAN A MINUTE. THIS IS COMPARED TO TAKING 50 MINUTES FOR GETTING THE RESULTS BACK ON JUST ONE RAPID ANTIGEN TEST. THIS THREE-YEAR-OLD DUTCH SHEPHERD DEMONSTRATED HOW IT WORKS. OVERTON BREAKS IT DOWN FOR US. >> WHAT THE SYSTEM DOES IS IT PREVENTS THE DOG FROM ACTUALLY BEING ABLE TO GET THE SAMPLE. YOU WILL SEE THIS LITTLE FILTER INSIDE OF YOUR THAT ACTUALLY PREVENTS THE DOG FROM STICKING HIS DOAK ALL THE WAY IN AND GRABBING THE SAMPLE. IT ALSO FOCUSES THAT ODOR, RIGHT HERE INTO THE EDGE OF THE FUNNEL. SO WHEN YOU SEE IT LATER, WITH THE DOGS, THE DOUBLE COME IN HERE AND STICK HIS NOSE INSIDE THE FUNNEL. WE ARE ABLE TO GET THE CONCENTRATED AREA RIGHT HERE.

AND THEN, IF IT IS A POSITIVE SAMPLE, THE DOG WOULD ALERT. OTHERWISE, HE WILL KEEP ON GOING. >> Reporter: OVERTON USES A NEUTRAL OWNER TO TRAIN THE DOGS IN THE INITIAL TRAINING, NOT AN ACTUAL VIRUS. AS YOU CAN SEE, THE DOG ALERTS BY SITTING DOWN IN FRONT OF THE TARGET TO. >> A REAL-WORLD SITUATION, THE DOG WOULD COME IN HERE AND WE WOULD HAVE TWO TUBES LABELED. WE WOULD KNOW WHICH SAMPLE IS WHICH ONE. THIS IS WITH A BARCODE SYSTEM AND ARE APP. IF THE DOG INDICATES WITH THIS ONE, THIS TUBE GETS FLAGGED AS A HOT TO. >> Reporter: THE DOGS ARE A MATCH FOR SEARCHING LARGE GROUPS OF PEOPLE.

ANYWAY WHERE THERE IS LARGE CROWDS OF PEOPLE IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO EACH OTHER, CRUISE SHIPS, STADIUMS, CONCERT VENUES, SCHOOLS, HOSPITALS, ANYWHERE, EVEN THE AIRLINES, ANY OF THOSE APPLICATIONS WOULD BE PERFECT FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS. >> Reporter: HE PRAYS OVER THE DOGS CONSTANTLY AND RELIES ON DIVINE INTERVENTION. >> AS FOR THE DISCERNMENT ON A DAILY BASIS, AND THEN, JUST TRUST THE HOLY SPIRIT. YOU KNOW, WE FIND THE QUIET SPACE. THE WORLD IS LOUD AND GOD LIKES TO WHISPER. I FIND A QUIET LITTLE SPACE AND I WAIT FOR HIS PROMPT.

HE TELLS ME TO GO FORWARD AND I DO. IF THE SPIRIT SAYS DON'T DO THAT, I DON'T. >> Reporter: AT THE END OF THE DAY, HIS WORK IS ALL FROM GOD'S GLORY. CBN NEWS, VIRGINIA. >>> FASCINATING. FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE DOG LOVERS, WE APPRECIATE THEM EVEN MORE NOW. ANDREW THE TRAINER SAID THAT HE WAS EVEN SKEPTICAL WHAT THEY COULD DO. IT IS REMARKABLE WHAT WE HAVE SEEN. YOU KNOW, TERRY, THAT PACE MAY BE MORE FOND OF MY DOG CARLY. >> I DID NOT KNOW YOU HAD A DOG. HAVE YOU HAD CHARLIE SINCE HE WAS A PUPPY? >> YES, A PUPPY, ABOUT SEVEN YEARS NOW. YOU KNOW, THE HOUSE, THEY WOULD HOW AND THERE IS NOTHING. >> SHE WILL BE IN ONE SPOT AND THEN SHE WILL MOVE TO ANOTHER. REALLY THEY ARE MAN'S >> I WAS IN A PLACE WHERE THERE WAS A LOT OF INSECURITY FOR ME, SELF-HATRED, THERE WAS ANGER. THERE WAS ALSO FRUSTRATION. AND, JUST REALLY, I HAD A LOT OF HURT. >> BECAUSE HIS BROTHERS WERE FORCED TO LOOK AFTER HIM, HE WAS SOON EXPOSED TO WHAT THEY DID.

>> THEY DID EVERYTHING A LEGAL. IT WAS RUNNING FROM THE POLICE, THERE WAS A LOT OF VIOLENCE. AT AN EARLY AGE, I WAS INVOLVED IN ALL OF THAT. THEY ALWAYS HAD TO BRING ME ALONG. THERE WAS A LOT OF PARTIES IN THE HOUSE, SEXUAL ACTS WERE BEING DONE. I WAS EXPOSED TO THAT. IT JUST BECAME A WAY OF LIFE. IT BECAME THE NORM. >> AS SHANNON GOT OLDER, HE BEGAN DOING DRUGS, STEALING, AND STARTING FIGHTS. THIS WAS ANYTHING TO WIN THE APPROVAL OF HIS BROTHERS. HE ENDED UP IN JUVENILE DETENTION AT AGE 15. HE ENCOUNTERED EVEN MORE VIOLENCE AND RACISM. HE EXPERIENCED MANY THINGS THAT HARD AND A CALLOUS HEART. >> THAT WAS ONE MOMENT. IT WAS NOT A REHABILITATION. IT WAS MORE OF A FORTIFYING FEELING AND FRUSTRATION AND ANGER, I HAD COURAGE TO LIVE ANOTHER DAY. I DID NOT CARE IF I ENDED UP IN JAIL FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. THERE WAS NOBODY IN MY LIFE THAT REALLY LOVED ME.

I HAD NO PURPOSE. SO SUICIDE DID COME INTO PLAY. THIS WAS A FEW TIMES. IT WAS DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT WAS IN MY MIND. THE IT WAS ALSO IN MY HEART. IF I WOULD JUST ENDED, EVERYBODY WOULD BE BETTER OFF. >> WHEN HE GOT OUT OF JUVENILE HALL, HE WAS DOING DRUGS, HAVING SEX AND DRINKING ALCOHOL. THIS WAS ANYTHING TO HELP THE PAIN SUBSIDE.

HE PARTICIPATED IN GANG ACTIVITY. HE WAS IN A DESTRUCTIVE CYCLE. THIS WENT ON FOR YEARS UNTIL ONE DAY, HE MET A GIRL. >> WHAT WAS DIFFERENT ABOUT KERRY? SHE HAD A LOVING HEART. I HAD SPENT MY WHOLE LIFE WANTING SOMETHING GOOD, SOMETHING LOVING, SOMETHING KIND TO BE INVOLVED IN MY LIFE. THIS WAS SOMETHING SPECIAL. IF THIS WAS GOING TO BE SOMETHING THAT WAS IMPORTANT TO WORK OUT, SOMETHING, A LOT OF THINGS ABOUT ME ACTUALLY WERE GOING TO HAVE TO CHANGE. I WAS SO LOST AFTER 20 SOME YEARS OF LIVING THE WAY THAT I HAVE BEEN LIVING, I DID NOT KNOW HOW TO GO ABOUT DOING THAT. I WAS GENERALLY HELPLESS AGAIN. >> KNOWING THAT SHANNON WAS STRUGGLING, A FRIEND OF HIS TRY TO CONVINCE HIM TO ATTEND CHURCH. SHANA WAS RELUCTANT AT FIRST BUT HE EVENTUALLY RELENTED. >> I JUST CAVED. I SAID SURE, WHY NOT. NOTHING ELSE HAS WORKED. I HAVE GOT TO GIVE THIS A TRY. I WALKED INTO A LITTLE CHURCH.

AND, MY WHOLE LIFE CHANGED IN THAT MOMENT. I WAS INTRODUCED TO, FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME, I WAS INTRODUCED TO THE FRIENDS THAT I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR. I FOUND LOVE, ACCEPTANCE, NO JUDGMENT. THESE PEOPLE GENUINELY CARE. AND, WE DID NOT EVEN KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT. >> SHANNON FOUND THE FAMILY HE HAD BEEN LONGING FOR AT THE CHURCH. HE SOON PRAYED, GIVING HIS LIFE TO JESUS CHRIST. >> ONCE I DID IT, I LITERALLY FELT LIKE A TRUCK HAD BEEN REMOVED FROM MY SHOULDERS. ALL OF THOSE WALLS AND THOSE BARRIERS THAT WERE PLACED OVER MY LIFE TO HARDEN IT, THROUGHOUT ALL OF THOSE YEARS OF ABUSE AND CHAOS, IT WAS ALL REMOVED. >> I REMEMBER THAT I NO LONGER HATED MYSELF.

I NO LONGER HAD A SENSE OF NOT CARING WHAT HAPPENED. ALL OF A SUDDEN, NOW I CARED. AND, THE AUTHOR THAT WAS CHRIST, I KNEW HE WAS ULTIMATELY WHAT I NEEDED. AND, IN THAT MOMENT, I JUST SIGNED AWAY EVERYTHING TO HIM. >> SHANNON COMMITTED HIMSELF TO PRAYER, STUDYING THE BIBLE AND SERVING IN THE CHURCH. HE WENT ON TO MARRY CARRIE AND START A FAMILY. NOW, HE IS A PASTOR THE SAME CHURCH HE CREDITS FOR HELPING TO SAVE HIS LIFE, HE SAYS IT WAS ONLY THE LOVE OF CHRIST THAT WAS ABLE TO SHINE A LIGHT INTO THE DARKNESS OF HIS HEART. >> I WAS JUST SO GRATEFUL. LOOKING BACK AT WHO I WAS AND WHERE I CAME FROM, HE HAS ME NOW, THERE IS A STARK DIFFERENCE. IT IS TOTALLY NIGHT AND DAY.

WHAT DOES JESUS MEAN TO ME? EVERYTHING. I CANNOT PICTURE MY LIFE WITHOUT HIM. I WOULD NOT WANT TO PICTURE MY LIFE WITHOUT HIM. HE LEADS US TO COME TO HIM AS WE ARE. ALLOW HIM TO CLEAN YOU UP WITH GRACE AND MERCY. AND, THERE IS NO ONE THAT CAN FRONT ON HIM. THERE IS NOTHING THAT YOU COULD HAVE DONE.

THERE IS NOTHING YOU COULD HAVE DONE TO NOT DESERVE HIS LOVE. IT IS A FREE GIFT. HE FREELY GIVES IT. AND, MAKING THE CHOICE TO GIVE YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST, IT IS GOING TO BE THE FIRST STEP IN THE GREATEST STEPS OF YOUR LIFE. I FOUND THAT OUT. ♪ >> WELL, WHEN I THINK OF SHANNON'S STORY, WHEN I HEAR WHAT HIS LIFE WAS LIKE, WHAT IT HAD BECOME AFTER THE CHILDHOOD THAT HE HAD BEEN IN, I THINK OF A SCRIPTURE THAT SAYS YOU REACH DOWN AND YOU PULLED ME OUT OF THE SLIMY PIT. AND, YOU SET MY FEET ON A ROCK. YOU KNOW, THE ROCK IS JESUS. AND, WHILE WE ALL MAY NOT HAVE A LIFE THAT SHANNON DID, YOU KNOW, SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY, IF WE DO NOT KNOW THE LORD, OR IF WE ARE NOT WALKING WITH HIM, LIFE COMES ALONG AND WE COMPROMISE.

WE MAKE A LITTLE COMPROMISE THEIR. AND PRETTY SOON, WE ARE IN A SLIMY PIT. YOU KNOW, IN HIS SCENARIO, HE WAS REALLY A YOUNG BOY WHO WANTED SOMEBODY TO BE THERE FOR HIM. HE WANTED SOMEBODY TO CARE. NEW THAT IS POWERFUL. IS IT NOT? THAT IS THE PROMISE OF GOD. WHEN YOU DO WHAT SHANNON TALKED ABOUT, WHEN YOU COME TO HIM WITH YOUR GARBAGE, WITH YOUR EMPTINESS, YOU COME WITH YOUR GUILT, YOUR LOSS; AND, WHEN YOU JUST GIVE IT TO HIM, YOU CAN SEE HE IS ASKED FOR THAT.

I KNOW. IT IS THE ONLY, IT IS THE ONLY PLACE THAT I KNOW WHERE YOU CAN FIND A STARAROVER LIKE THAT. HE WANTS ALL OF YOUR JUNK. HE IS GOING TO TAKE THAT. THE ENEMY, EVIL, THAT IS ANOTHER PROMISE: HE WILL WORK AS WELL. HE TAKES AND HE EXCHANGES IT. HE GIVES YOU BEAUTY FOR ASHES. HE GIVES YOU OLD JOY FROM MORNING. HE GIVES YOU A GARMENT OF PRAISE. SOMETIMES YOU CAN GET IN A SLIMY PIT EVEN WHEN YOU HAVE NO GOD. YOU KNOW, WE JUST LET LIFE IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER DRUG US AWAY FROM HIM. YOU CAN ALWAYS COME BACK HOME TO THE FATHER HEART OF GOD. IT IS NEVER TOO LATE. YOU CANNOT GO TOO FAR, YOU CANNOT HAVE TOO MUCH JUNK. THAT IS WHAT SHANNON WAS SAYING. IT IS FOR EVERYBODY. IT IS NOT JUST FOR SOME.

IT IS NOT JUST FOR AN OCCASIONAL FIRST YEAR AND. JESUS STRETCHED HIS ARMS OUT ON THE CROSS IN ORDER TO SAY TO ALL OF US COME. COME, I AND THE PRICE FOR YOU. AND I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU A BRAND-NEW BEGINNING. AND THEN, I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW TO LIVE. YOU SEE, IT IS NOT JUST YOU HAVE A LITTLE CONVERSATION WITH GOD AND YOU KNOW, HE FORGIVES YOUR SINS. AND, THAT IS THE END OF HIS. NO, YOU ARE GIVING YOUR LIFE TO HIM. YOU ARE SAYING HERE I AM, HERE IT IS. YOU CREATED ME. NOW, SHOW ME HOW TO LIVE. IT IS THAT SIMPLE. YOU HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH HIM. HE HAS BEEN WAITING FOR YOU FOR A LONG TIME. YOU JUST SAY JESUS, I AM A SINNER. YOU DIED FOR ME. I WAS THAT. I RECEIVE THAT FORGIVENESS THAT COVERS MY SIN. I DO NOT DESERVE IT BUT, I RECEIVE IT. AND TODAY I AM ASKING YOU TO CHANGE MY LIFE I'M ASKING YOU TO TEACH ME HOW TO LIVE FOR YOU.

TEACH ME HOW TO FORM WITH YOUR HOLY SPIRIT. TEACH ME THE WAY I SEE THINGS, THE WAY I HEAR THINGS, THE WAY I WAS ON TWO THINGS. I WANT TO BE YOUR MAN, YOUR WOMAN, I'M GOING TO LIVE MY LIFE THE WAY YOU CREATED ME TO LIVE IN. IF YOU PRAY A PRAYER THAT IS NOT GENUINE, HE IS THERE NOW. HE IS IN YOUR LIFE. HE IS WANTING TO TOUCH YOU AND CHANGE YOU. SO, HOW DO YOU WALK FORWARD WITH HIM? WE HAVE A GREAT PACKET THAT HAS BEEN PUT TOGETHER FOR YOU. IT IS CALLED A NEW DAY. IT HAS WONDERFUL INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS THE SOMEBODY WORKING FOR JESUS. HOW DO YOU WORK THAT OUT? THIS IS FREE AND >>> WELCOME BACK THE 700 CLUB FOR THE CBN NEWSBREAK.

WE HAVE HER AMAZING STORY WHEN WE COME BACK. ♪ >>> STRUGGLED ON A TEACHER'S SALARY, THAT IS WHAT MARKET WAS FACING AS A SINGLE MOTHER OF TWO. SO, SHE PRAYED TO GOD FOR HELP. HIS ANSWER SURPRISED HER. IT ALSO LED MARGARET TO BECOME A REAL ESTATE MOGUL. >> Reporter: MARGARET IS THE FOUNDER AND CEO OF A HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL REAL ESTATE BROKERAGE AND AN INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT COMPANY BASED IN SAN FRANCISCO.

LIFE WAS NOT ALWAYS SO GOOD FOR MARGARET. SHE WAS BORN IN CHINA AMIDST WARTIME STRIKE. SHE BECAME A REFUGEE IN HONG KONG AND SHE FOUND HERSELF IN AN ABUSIVE MARRIAGE WITH TWO CHILDREN TO RAISE. SHE RECOUNTS HER JOURNEY FROM A LIFE OF DESPAIR TO ONE OF GREAT JOY AND THIS IS ALL IN HER BOOK GOD IS GOOD. >> PLEASE WELCOME TO THE 700 CLUB, MARGARET COLLINS. MARGARET, HOW WONDERFUL TO HAVE YOU WITH US. >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. IT IS MY PLEASURE. >> YOU HAD A ROUGH START IN LIFE. THIS WAS ALLUDED TO IN THAT PIECE.

TALK ABOUT THE EARLY YEARS WERE LIKE FOR YOU. >> WELL, FOR THE FIRST 15 YEARS OF MY MARRIAGE, IN THAT FIRST MARRIAGE, IT WAS DIFFICULT. AND BECAUSE I WAS RAISED IN TRADITIONAL TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE, I DID NOT KNOW HOW TO WELCOME THE SUPERNATURAL POWER OF GOD. ONE INCIDENT TRIGGERED ME TO HAVE AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD. AND I AM VERY POLITE AND I TALKED TO GOD POLITELY. I DO NOT WANT TO OFFEND GOD. BUT, WHEN MY EX-HUSBAND THROUGH MY SON AGAINST THE WALL, I GOT VERY UPSET. I SAID I HAD THE AUDACITY TO GET MAD AT GOD. I SAY GOD, IF YOU ARE A GOD OF LOVE, HOW CAN YOU LET MY SON SUFFER. I AM A MOTHER AND A HUMAN. I CANNOT HANDLE THIS. INTERESTINGLY, AFTER THIS ENCOUNTER, MY EX-HUSBAND HANDED ME A DIVORCE PAPER. SO, THAT ACTUALLY HELPED ME TO BE DELIVERED FROM THIS ABUSIVE MARRIAGE. THIS WAS GREAT. >> ALSO, YOU KNOW, IN THOSE DAYS, THE CHURCH WAS VERY HARD ON THEIR POSITION OF WOMEN DIVORCE AND YOU FELT LIKE YOU HAD TO STAY IN THAT RELATIONSHIP. THIS WAS UNTIL GOD REALLY AS YOU SAID, HE OPENED THE DOOR FOR YOU TO LEAVE.

YOU HAD TWO CHILDREN. THAT MUST'VE BEEN DAUNTING TO HOW I AM GOING TO SUPPORT MY KIDS IF I AM OUT OF THIS RELATIONSHIP. >> RIGHT. HE HAD A SALARY OF 35,000 IN THOSE DAYS. I DID A CALCULATION. HOUSING COSTS, FOOD, IT WOULD NOT EVEN SUFFICE US IN AN APARTMENT. I PRAY TO GOD. I FELT VERY CONFIDENT THAT GOD TALKS TO ME. I DID A CALCULATION. I ASKED GOD FOR SPECIFIC. I SAID GOD, I HAVE TO SEND MY TWO CHILDREN TO COLLEGE. I NEED ABOUT $100,000. I LOVE MY CHILDREN SO MUCH THAT MY HEART WAS OPENED. THAT IS WHAT I KNOW HOW MUCH GOD LOVES US.

INTERESTINGLY, GOD SAID MARGARET, GO INTO REAL ESTATE. THAT WAS A SHOCK TO ME. I WAS NOT TRAINED IN REAL ESTATE. I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT REAL ESTATE. BUT THEN I HAD A LITTLE DISCUSSION WITH GOD. I WANTED TO DISCUSS WITH GOD AND GOD SAID MARGARET, YOUR BACK IS EVENTS THE WALL, YOU HAVE NOWHERE TO GO. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? I SAID OKAY GOD, THAT WAS MY BIG LEAP OF FAITH. I SURRENDERED MY HEALTH. I DID THIS TOTALLY TO GOD. THIS REALLY FULFILL JEREMIAH CHAPTER 21:11.

HE HAS PLANNED FOR US TO GET RESULTS AND TO CROSS HER. HE DOES NOT WANT TO HARM US.'S EMAC ONE OF THE THINGS I SAW IN YOUR BOOK ABOUT THESE CONVERSATIONS THAT YOU HAD WITH GOD AND GOD WOULD TELL YOU WHAT DIRECTION HE THOUGHT YOU SHOULD GO, THESE ARE CONVERSATIONS THAT YOU SAY ARE AVAILABLE TO ANY ONE OF US WHO ARE WILLING TO DRAW NEAR TO GOD AND WALK THE WALK THAT HE CALLS US TO. YOU HAD ZERO EXPERIENCE IN REAL ESTATE. YOU SAID YES TUITT. BUT THEN, YOU GOT BUSY LEARNING ABOUT IT. YOU DID NOT JUST SIT AND WAIT FOR GOD TO DROP SOMETHING IN YOUR LAP. YOU STARTED TO LEARN THE BUSINESS. HOW DID YOU DO THAT? >> WELL I THINK FROM THEN ON, THERE IS A SECRET TO THAT. WHEN YOU TOTALLY SURRENDER TO GOD, YOU DRAW INTO GOD'S PERFECT PLAN. WHEN YOU DO THAT, HE ALREADY ARRANGED THE STEPS.

THAT IS WHY HE GAVE ME THE MOTIVATION. HE GAVE ME THE INTELLIGENCE. HE ALSO GAVE ME THE CLIENT. WHEN I WENT INTO REAL ESTATE, I WAS AS POOR AS A CHURCH MOUSE, LITERALLY. GOD BROUGHT ME A TYCOON FROM HONG KONG. I SOLD REAL ESTATE TO MOST OF THE TYCOONS IN HONG KONG. SO, WHAT I WANT TO SAY HERE IS YOU HAVE TO TRUST GOD. YOU HAVE TO RECEIVE HIM AS HE TELLS YOU. WHEN GOD SAYS SOMETHING TO YOU, HE REALLY WANTS YOU TO BE BLESSED. NOT JUST A LITTLE BIT BUT A LOT. AND, YOU HAVE TO CONSTANTLY WALK IN HIS PRESENCE. AND SO, THAT IS WHAT I DID. >> WHAT DO YOU THINK HAS MADE YOU SO FINANCIALLY SUCCESSFUL? I KNOW THAT YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVICE TYCOONS FROM HONG KONG.

BUT, GENERALLY SPEAKING, I MEAN, YOU HAVE HAD A LONG, SUCCESSFUL CAREER. WHAT YOU THINK WAS THE SECRET OF YOUR BEING SUCCESSFUL IN WHAT CALLED YOU TO? >> I THINK INVITING THIS BOOK, THE LORD PROVIDED ME, FROM WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE, I LEARNED TO BE ABLE TO HAVE TIES TO GOD. IN COLLEGE, I WAS A VERY GOOD DIDN'T. I HELD TWO JOBS. I WAS A WAITRESS. AT OUR LOCAL CHURCH, WE WERE BUILDING FUNDS. AND, I WONDERED HOW MUCH I SHOULD GIVE. GOD SAID GIVE 100%. GIVE ALL I HAVE. THAT WAS ALL I HAD IN MY ACCOUNT.

I GAVE $400. LATER ON, I THINK GOD KNOWS MY HEART. I AND NEVER MISSING FOR MONEY. I AM ALSO A PERSON THAT WANTS TO SERVE GOD. I WANT TO BRING GOD TO OTHER PEOPLE. SO, I THINK THAT GOD TRUSTS ME THAT WHEN I WENT INTO REAL ESTATE, WHEN I GO INTO WEALTH, IT IS NOT FOR MY ONLY GOAL, FOR MY OWN PROCEDURE ITSELF, IT IS TO MAGNIFY GOD'S KINGDOM. >> THAT HAS MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD. WHEN PEOPLE READ YOUR BOOK, ONE OF THE THINGS I LOVED ABOUT IT WAS THAT YOU TALKED ABOUT THE CHARACTERISTICS OF GOD AND THE RELATIONSHIP AVAILABLE TO US. YOU FOLD OF SCRIPTURE THROUGH ALL OF THAT, TAKING US ON A JOURNEY WITH GOD. WHAT MAIN MESSAGE DO YOU WANT READERS TO TAKE AWAY FROM YOUR BOOK? >> I THINK THE MAIN MESSAGE IS THAT GOD IS AWESOME. HE IS ALWAYS GOOD. IT IS UP TO YOU TO CONNECT WITH HIM.

>> THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT GOD IS GOOD. AND, THAT IS THE TITLE OF THE BOOK. IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD. MARGARET, THANK YOU SO MUCH. GOD BLESS YOU. >>> WE WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF THE 700 CLUB RIGHT AFTER THIS. ♪ >>> THEINTERNATIONAL OUTREACH OF CBN IS AMAZING . CBN TOUCHES MANY OF THE AREAS IN THE WORLD THAT YOU AS AN INDIVIDUAL CANNOT TOUCH. IT ALLOWS ME TO BE A PART OF SUCH AN AMAZING BODY OF CHRIST. >> I MEAN, WE LOVE TO GIVE.

SHE IS TWO YEARS OLD. A YEAR AGO, ELIZABETH'S MOTHER NOTICED SHE WAS NOT WALKING NORMALLY. >> SHE WAS VERY PIGEON TOED, IT WAS TO THE POINT WHERE HER ONE FOOT WAS ALMOST ENTIRELY PERPENDICULAR TO THE OTHER FOOT.

>> Reporter: MELISSA MADE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE THE PEDIATRICIAN. >> SHE HAD TOLD ME WHAT ACTUALLY CAUSED THIS TO OCCUR IS THAT WHENEVER SHE WAS SAID, SHE WOULD OFTEN SIT IN A W POSITION. HE ASSURED ME THAT THIS IS NOT ANYTHING OUT OF THE THEN AN APPOINTMENT WAS MADE WITH A DIFFERENT DOCTOR. >> THE OTHER PEDIATRICIAN WAS IN COMPLETE AGREEMENT WITH THE FIRST PEDIATRICIAN. I THOUGHT WELL, IF THEY BOTH THINK THAT SHE IS GOING TO BE OKAY, I JUST NEED TO BE PATIENT AND RELAX. >> Reporter: A COUPLE MORE MONTHS WENT BY AND MELISSA DID NOT FIND ANY IMPROVEMENT IN HER DOCTOR'S DEVELOPMENT. SHE BECAME EXTREMELY CONCERNED. >> I WORRIED FOR HER SELF- ESTEEM AND HER SELF-CONFIDENCE.

I WORRIED THAT SHE WOULD MAYBE AVOID CERTAIN ACTIVITIES OR CERTAIN SOCIAL FUNCTIONS. THIS IS BECAUSE SHE MIGHT BE EMBARRASSED OF HOW HER FEET WERE TURNED IN. >> Reporter:r:MELISSA BEGAN PRAYING OVER HER DAUGHTER EVERY NIGHT AFTER SHE GAVE HER A BATH. >> AS I PUT THE LOTION ON HER LEGS, I WOULD FIND MYSELF AT THAT TIMES IS EPICALLY SAYING THANK YOU, I KNOW ONE DAY YOU ARE GOING TO KILL MY DAUGHTER'S LEGS. >> Reporter: ONE MORNING WHILE WATCHING THE 700 CLUB, ALYSSA HEARD THE DAUGHTER BEGINNING TO PRAY. >> WHEN TWO OR MORE AGREE, TOUCHING ANYTHING, IT SHALL BE DONE FOR THEM. WE LAY HANDS ON THE AREA OF THE BODY THAT NEEDS HEALING.

>> I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME BUT I WILL LAY MY HANDS ON HER LEGS AND GORDON WILL BE THE SECOND PERSON TO PRAY WITH ME. AND SO, I DID. >> Reporter: BE HEALED AND BE MADE WHOLE. THIS IS IN JESUS'S NAME. >> ONCE IT WAS OVER, THEN I BELIEVED THAT THIS PRAYER WOULD BE ANSWERED. >> Reporter: LATER THAT DAY, MELISSA AND HER FAMILY WERE OUTSTANDING IN THE BACKYARD. SHE NOTICED THING DIFFERENT ABOUT ELIZABETH. >> SHE WAS RUNNING THROUGH THE BUBBLES. SHE WAS TRYING TO CATCH THEM AND POPTHEM. I HAD SAID TO MY HUSBAND, DO USE THE THAT.

AND HE ASKED ME WHAT. I SAID HER, HER ARE NOT TURNED IN ANYMORE. THEY ARE PERFECTLY STRAIGHT. LOOKED AT HER AND HE SAID YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. I WAS COMPLETE. I BELIEVE MY PRAYER WAS ANSWERED. BUT THE SAME DAY? THE VERY SAME DAY I SAW THIS AND EYEWITNESS IT, IT WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING TO SEE HER RUN THROUGH THESE BUBBLES. THIS WAS AS CAREFREE AS SHE WAS. AND, SHE WAS JUST LOVING THEM. >> Reporter: GOD HEALED ELIZABETH'S LEGS THAT THEY. HER CONDITION HAS NOT RETURNED. NOW, SHE CAN RUN AND PLAY AS FAST AS SHE WANTS. >> TO FEEL THE BURDEN LIFTED OFF OF MY SHOULDERS, TO HAVE THAT CROSS LISTED, AND TO KNOW, IT IS TRUE. GOD DOES HEAR OUR PRAYERS. WE JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE AND WE HAVE TO ASK HIM. >> AMEN, THE SAME DAY THAT MELISSA SAW GOD, I LOVE HOW SHE REALIZED THE POWER OF PRAYER AND THERE IS POWER IN THIS COMMUNITY OF PEOPLE PRAYING. TERRY AND I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THE TIME TO PRAY FOR YOU. IT IS OUR PRIVILEGE TO DO SO, WHATEVER YOUR NEED IS AIRPORT BEFORE WE DO, WE WOULD LIKE TO GIVE YOU POSITIVE AND ENCOURAGING REPORTS.

ROSA IN TEXAS WAS DIAGNOSED WITH EARLY SIGNS OF DIABETES. SHE CALLED CBN, A PRAYER PARTNER PRAY FOR COMPLETE HEALING . LATER SHE CALLED BACK TO REPORT THAT SHE HAS NO MORE SIGNS OF DIABETES. HER SUGAR LEVELS ARE NEARLY FROZEN. >> WAS THIS. THIS IS TIMOTHY. HE LIVES IN WISCONSIN. HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER ON HIS CHIN, THE WORST.

THE PROGNOSIS WAS THAT THIS AGGRESSIVE CANCER WOULD MOST LIKELY SPREAD. BEFORE CALLING FOR A SECOND OPINION, HE CALLED THE 700 CLUB PRAYER LINE AND HE RECEIVED FERVENT PRAYER FOR COMPLETE HEALING. AT THE APPOINTMENT FOR THE SECOND OPINION, THE DOCTOR THAT THE ROAD TEST ON ALL OF TIMOTHY'S SKIN TISSUE. THIS TIME, THERE WAS NO CANCER TO BE FOUND. AMEN INDEED. >> THAT RIGHT. WHAT EVER YOU NEED IS, AND BEFORE THE LORD. LORD GOD, WE ARE HUMBLED TODAY. WE ARE SO THANKFUL THAT YOU HEAR US AND YOU CARE.
