  • here to studio C.
  • 00:00:22.140 --> 00:00:24.060
  • Our guest, Franklin Graham,
  • 00:00:24.060 --> 00:00:26.110

  • 00:00:26.110 --> 00:00:28.140
  • of the Billy Graham Association
  • 00:00:28.140 --> 00:00:30.180
  • and Samaritan's Purse.
  • 00:00:30.180 --> 00:00:32.190
  • We were talking before we
  • 00:00:32.190 --> 00:00:34.210
  • started today, and I want you to
  • 00:00:36.070 --> 00:00:39.070
  • know that you're in the original
  • 00:00:39.070 --> 00:00:41.220
  • studio.
  • 00:00:41.220 --> 00:00:43.110
  • Now, look around.
  • 00:00:43.110 --> 00:00:44.030
  • It looks a little different
  • 00:00:44.030 --> 00:00:44.280
  • nowadays, you know?
  • 00:00:44.280 --> 00:00:45.250
  • It's real different.
  • 00:00:45.250 --> 00:00:47.150
  • And--but this studio, and I love
  • 00:00:48.070 --> 00:00:51.070
  • that big wide shot, was the
  • 00:00:51.070 --> 00:00:54.020
  • original studio that the first
  • 00:00:54.020 --> 00:00:56.290
  • time my parents,
  • 00:00:56.290 --> 00:00:58.050
  • Paul and Jane Crouch,
  • 00:00:58.050 --> 00:01:00.030
  • invited you to sit with
  • 00:01:00.030 --> 00:01:01.210
  • them and share what you've been
  • 00:01:01.210 --> 00:01:02.210
  • doing, you would have walked
  • 00:01:02.210 --> 00:01:04.080
  • into this studio in what year?
  • 00:01:04.080 --> 00:01:06.120
  • - Franklin Graham: Probably had
  • 00:01:06.120 --> 00:01:07.040
  • been 1979, '80, somewhere in
  • 00:01:07.060 --> 00:01:10.060
  • there.
  • 00:01:10.060 --> 00:01:10.270
  • - Matt: Okay.
  • 00:01:10.270 --> 00:01:11.170
  • So, how did you and my parents
  • 00:01:11.170 --> 00:01:14.070
  • meet?
  • 00:01:14.070 --> 00:01:15.060
  • - Franklin: I met--we were
  • 00:01:15.060 --> 00:01:16.010
  • working Samaritan's Purse.
  • 00:01:16.010 --> 00:01:17.190
  • We were very small, just a
  • 00:01:17.190 --> 00:01:18.230
  • handful of us at that time,
  • 00:01:18.230 --> 00:01:20.240
  • working in Southeast Asia with
  • 00:01:20.240 --> 00:01:23.080
  • the refugees that were coming
  • 00:01:23.080 --> 00:01:24.130
  • out of Vietnam, went into
  • 00:01:24.130 --> 00:01:26.240
  • Cambodia at that time.
  • 00:01:26.240 --> 00:01:28.280
  • And your parents heard that I
  • 00:01:28.280 --> 00:01:30.090
  • was working there, and they
  • 00:01:30.090 --> 00:01:32.060
  • invited me to come by and meet
  • 00:01:33.030 --> 00:01:36.030
  • with them.
  • 00:01:36.030 --> 00:01:36.180
  • I flew into Los Angeles, and
  • 00:01:36.180 --> 00:01:38.050
  • took a car down here.
  • 00:01:38.050 --> 00:01:40.030
  • And they interviewed on their
  • 00:01:40.030 --> 00:01:42.140
  • program.
  • 00:01:42.140 --> 00:01:43.090
  • - Matt: So, we're talking
  • 00:01:43.090 --> 00:01:44.030
  • 35 years ago.
  • 00:01:44.030 --> 00:01:46.250
  • So, the tradition continues.
  • 00:01:46.250 --> 00:01:48.090
  • We're talking about Samaritan's
  • 00:01:48.090 --> 00:01:49.150
  • Purse today.
  • 00:01:49.150 --> 00:01:50.240
  • Our guest, Franklin Graham,
  • 00:01:50.240 --> 00:01:52.040
  • thank you for coming out to
  • 00:01:52.040 --> 00:01:52.250
  • California.
  • 00:01:52.250 --> 00:01:54.060
  • We're going to be talking now,
  • 00:01:54.060 --> 00:01:55.110
  • Franklin, about Operation Heal
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:57.140
  • Our Patriots.
  • 00:01:57.140 --> 00:01:58.270
  • If that's a new term to some
  • 00:01:58.270 --> 00:02:00.130
  • viewing now, catch them up to
  • 00:02:00.230 --> 00:02:03.230
  • speed.
  • 00:02:03.230 --> 00:02:04.160
  • - Franklin: Yeah, it's
  • 00:02:04.160 --> 00:02:05.080
  • Operation Heal Our Patriots, and
  • 00:02:05.080 --> 00:02:06.230
  • it's about healing their hearts.
  • 00:02:06.240 --> 00:02:09.240
  • These would be soldiers that
  • 00:02:09.240 --> 00:02:11.260
  • have been wounded since 9/11.
  • 00:02:12.130 --> 00:02:15.130
  • These are soldiers that have
  • 00:02:15.130 --> 00:02:16.280
  • lost limbs, eyes, they have
  • 00:02:18.070 --> 00:02:21.070
  • traumatic brain injuries,
  • 00:02:22.050 --> 00:02:25.050
  • guys that have suffered.
  • 00:02:25.050 --> 00:02:27.280
  • These are not the same men that
  • 00:02:27.280 --> 00:02:28.290
  • they were when they went to
  • 00:02:28.290 --> 00:02:30.000
  • battle, but they've come home
  • 00:02:30.000 --> 00:02:31.030
  • now and parts of their bodies
  • 00:02:31.030 --> 00:02:33.280
  • are missing.
  • 00:02:33.280 --> 00:02:35.150
  • But their marriages are falling
  • 00:02:35.150 --> 00:02:36.200
  • apart.
  • 00:02:36.200 --> 00:02:37.230
  • Then they're not strong
  • 00:02:37.230 --> 00:02:38.110
  • marriages anyway, but--many of
  • 00:02:38.110 --> 00:02:39.250
  • them, but they come home, and
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:44.190
  • nobody has prepared the spouse
  • 00:02:44.190 --> 00:02:45.210
  • how to deal with these types of
  • 00:02:45.210 --> 00:02:47.220
  • things.
  • 00:02:47.220 --> 00:02:48.270
  • And so, we have a place in
  • 00:02:48.270 --> 00:02:50.050
  • Alaska we take them, we take
  • 00:02:50.050 --> 00:02:51.090
  • them starting June 1, it goes
  • 00:02:51.090 --> 00:02:52.250
  • through the middle of September.
  • 00:02:52.250 --> 00:02:55.020
  • And we take ten couples a week.
  • 00:02:55.020 --> 00:02:57.090
  • And we pay all of their expenses
  • 00:02:57.090 --> 00:02:58.210
  • from the time they leave their
  • 00:02:58.210 --> 00:02:59.250
  • home, wherever that is, up to
  • 00:02:59.250 --> 00:03:02.020
  • Alaska and back.
  • 00:03:02.020 --> 00:03:03.080
  • But they have to agree to, if
  • 00:03:03.080 --> 00:03:06.080
  • they come, is they have to agree
  • 00:03:06.080 --> 00:03:07.240
  • to marriage seminars.
  • 00:03:07.240 --> 00:03:09.130
  • We have one in the morning and
  • 00:03:09.130 --> 00:03:10.100
  • one in the evening.
  • 00:03:10.100 --> 00:03:11.290
  • And a lot of them say,
  • 00:03:11.290 --> 00:03:13.100
  • "Well, okay.
  • 00:03:13.100 --> 00:03:14.170
  • For a free trip to Alaska,
  • 00:03:14.170 --> 00:03:15.090
  • yeah, why not?
  • 00:03:15.090 --> 00:03:16.220
  • I'll do that."
  • 00:03:16.220 --> 00:03:18.020
  • And so, they get up there, and
  • 00:03:18.020 --> 00:03:19.220
  • they just want to go fish, and
  • 00:03:19.220 --> 00:03:20.280
  • they want to go see the bears,
  • 00:03:20.280 --> 00:03:22.150
  • and those kinds of things.
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:24.040
  • But they've agreed to sit down
  • 00:03:24.040 --> 00:03:25.090
  • for those 2 hours a day, and we
  • 00:03:26.060 --> 00:03:29.060
  • see couples getting off the
  • 00:03:29.060 --> 00:03:31.120
  • planes fighting, right at each
  • 00:03:31.120 --> 00:03:33.030
  • other's throats.
  • 00:03:33.030 --> 00:03:34.270
  • But by the end of the week, God
  • 00:03:34.270 --> 00:03:36.170
  • has begun to work in their
  • 00:03:36.170 --> 00:03:37.160
  • hearts.
  • 00:03:37.160 --> 00:03:38.240
  • About 40% of those that come
  • 00:03:38.260 --> 00:03:41.260
  • accept Christ as their Savior.
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:44.220
  • We baptize them right there in
  • 00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:45.230
  • the lake.
  • 00:03:45.230 --> 00:03:46.170
  • It's cold too.
  • 00:03:46.170 --> 00:03:47.180
  • But we baptize them right there.
  • 00:03:47.180 --> 00:03:48.170
  • And marriages are renewed, Matt,
  • 00:03:49.100 --> 00:03:52.100
  • lives are changed, and these
  • 00:03:52.100 --> 00:03:54.000
  • are--these are men and women,
  • 00:03:54.000 --> 00:03:56.080
  • and some of these soldiers are
  • 00:03:56.080 --> 00:03:57.270
  • women that have lost legs and
  • 00:03:57.270 --> 00:03:59.130
  • arms, and the spouse is the
  • 00:03:59.130 --> 00:04:02.110
  • husband.
  • 00:04:02.110 --> 00:04:03.260
  • But these are--these are men and
  • 00:04:03.260 --> 00:04:04.260
  • women that have defended our
  • 00:04:04.260 --> 00:04:07.070
  • freedom.
  • 00:04:07.070 --> 00:04:08.130
  • They have gone out there and
  • 00:04:08.130 --> 00:04:09.110
  • they have fought for our
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:10.120
  • country, and it's just a little
  • 00:04:10.120 --> 00:04:12.220
  • thing that we can do, it's a way
  • 00:04:12.220 --> 00:04:14.100
  • that we can invest in their
  • 00:04:14.100 --> 00:04:15.200
  • lives, into their families.
  • 00:04:15.200 --> 00:04:18.020
  • But it's all about trying to
  • 00:04:18.020 --> 00:04:20.200
  • save their marriage and do it in
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:22.010
  • the name of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:04:22.010 --> 00:04:23.220
  • - Matt: Everything that's
  • 00:04:23.220 --> 00:04:24.110
  • happening with
  • 00:04:24.110 --> 00:04:25.000
  • Operation Heal Our Patriots,
  • 00:04:25.000 --> 00:04:26.280
  • - male announcer: We're trained
  • 00:04:31.020 --> 00:04:31.240
  • to ignore pain.
  • 00:04:31.240 --> 00:04:33.170
  • When someone calls us, no is not
  • 00:04:33.170 --> 00:04:35.230
  • an option.
  • 00:04:35.230 --> 00:04:37.270
  • - Franklin: These military
  • 00:04:37.270 --> 00:04:38.170
  • couples--

  • - Franklin: Have been to war,
  • 00:04:43.150 --> 00:04:44.150
  • long separations.
  • 00:04:44.150 --> 00:04:46.220
  • - Christopher Hardister:

  • This is my wife,
  • 00:04:49.220 --> 00:04:50.070
  • Jennifer Hardister.
  • 00:04:50.070 --> 00:04:51.010
  • - Franklin: Who've had as many
  • 00:04:51.010 --> 00:04:51.230
  • as 15 deployments.
  • 00:04:51.230 --> 00:04:53.190
  • - male: I spent 6 years in the
  • 00:04:53.190 --> 00:04:54.220
  • army.

  • PTSD and TBI, anger, confusion.
  • 00:04:57.280 --> 00:05:01.000
  • - Franklin: And then they get
  • 00:05:01.000 --> 00:05:01.210
  • wounded, the marriages
  • 00:05:01.210 --> 00:05:02.180
  • are in trouble.
  • 00:05:02.180 --> 00:05:03.160
  • - male: July 3, 2005, we drove
  • 00:05:03.160 --> 00:05:04.280
  • over an anti-tank mine in Iraq,
  • 00:05:04.280 --> 00:05:07.120
  • lost my leg.
  • 00:05:07.120 --> 00:05:08.130
  • - male: First injury was a
  • 00:05:08.130 --> 00:05:09.070
  • suicide bomber collapsed the

  • - Franklin: Operation Heal Our
  • 00:05:17.270 --> 00:05:18.200
  • Patriots, there's a battle that
  • 00:05:18.200 --> 00:05:20.080
  • takes place here every day,
  • 00:05:20.080 --> 00:05:22.040
  • and it's to try to save
  • 00:05:22.040 --> 00:05:23.130
  • these couples,
  • 00:05:23.130 --> 00:05:24.180
  • - male: Coming right to you.
  • 00:05:32.110 --> 00:05:33.270
  • There you go.
  • 00:05:33.270 --> 00:05:35.150
  • He's a pretty good size.
  • 00:05:35.150 --> 00:05:36.250
  • - male: Yeah, he is.
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:37.190
  • - Dan Stephens: Well, the
  • 00:05:41.280 --> 00:05:42.170
  • veterans, I think when they
  • 00:05:42.170 --> 00:05:43.140
  • first come, they're looking for
  • 00:05:43.140 --> 00:05:44.100
  • a good time, a good time in
  • 00:05:44.100 --> 00:05:45.200
  • Alaska, a time to be away with
  • 00:05:45.200 --> 00:05:47.050
  • their spouse, and just enjoy
  • 00:05:47.050 --> 00:05:49.040
  • nature and each other.
  • 00:05:49.040 --> 00:05:51.040
  • Many of our couples now hear of
  • 00:05:51.040 --> 00:05:52.100
  • other couples that have been up
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:53.170
  • here, and they see that their
  • 00:05:53.170 --> 00:05:54.210
  • lives have been changed not only
  • 00:05:54.210 --> 00:05:56.180
  • in their marriages, but their
  • 00:05:56.180 --> 00:05:57.230
  • own personal lives.
  • 00:05:57.230 --> 00:05:59.080
  • And so, we're getting more and

  • get our marriage worked on.
  • 00:06:02.280 --> 00:06:05.050
  • We're coming up to a place where
  • 00:06:05.050 --> 00:06:06.120
  • we're going to be able to talk
  • 00:06:06.120 --> 00:06:07.100
  • to people that will be able
  • 00:06:07.100 --> 00:06:08.210
  • to help us with our marriage
  • 00:06:08.210 --> 00:06:10.070
  • I'll let her tell it.
  • 00:06:12.130 --> 00:06:15.130
  • - Yesica Harris: Okay,
  • 00:06:15.130 --> 00:06:16.060

  • - Yesica: Tenth grade,
  • 00:06:17.250 --> 00:06:18.150
  • he asked me for a piece of gum.
  • 00:06:18.150 --> 00:06:21.000
  • - Ralph: This was the first
  • 00:06:21.000 --> 00:06:22.230
  • question I ever asked her
  • 00:06:22.230 --> 00:06:25.150
  • when we first met,
  • 00:06:25.150 --> 00:06:26.290
  • "Do you have a piece of gum?"
  • 00:06:26.290 --> 00:06:27.270
  • And this was the gum
  • 00:06:27.270 --> 00:06:28.150
  • that she gave me.
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:29.180
  • I was like a stray cat.
  • 00:06:29.180 --> 00:06:30.070
  • When she fed me,
  • 00:06:30.070 --> 00:06:31.260
  • I kept coming back for it.
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:36.200

  • - Krys Bowman: Go figure.
  • 00:06:44.100 --> 00:06:45.010

  • - Shelby Rogers: I met Patrick
  • 00:06:47.130 --> 00:06:48.290
  • when he came over to my house.
  • 00:06:48.290 --> 00:06:51.190
  • I was about five, and we did not
  • 00:06:51.190 --> 00:06:53.290
  • - male: You get here and
  • 00:07:01.010 --> 00:07:02.030
  • the whole village is out here
  • 00:07:02.030 --> 00:07:03.180

  • through and shake everybody's
  • 00:07:07.260 --> 00:07:09.000
  • hand a second time.
  • 00:07:09.000 --> 00:07:10.080
  • I loved it so much, it felt so
  • 00:07:10.080 --> 00:07:11.260
  • good and so warm.
  • 00:07:11.260 --> 00:07:13.010
  • And I was just like,
  • 00:07:13.010 --> 00:07:14.060
  • - Ralph: I went out kayaking,
  • 00:07:17.250 --> 00:07:18.160
  • I went on a hike yesterday,
  • 00:07:18.160 --> 00:07:20.090
  • it was beautiful.
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:21.020
  • We went fishing.
  • 00:07:21.020 --> 00:07:22.120
  • Living the dream.
  • 00:07:22.120 --> 00:07:23.210
  • - Patrick: Yesterday, we
  • 00:07:23.210 --> 00:07:24.110
  • probably caught about
  • 00:07:24.110 --> 00:07:25.130
  • over 60 fish easily.
  • 00:07:25.130 --> 00:07:26.270
  • - Shelby: And the smile on his
  • 00:07:26.270 --> 00:07:27.260
  • - Drew Inman: It's surreal with
  • 00:07:30.270 --> 00:07:32.100
  • the peace and quiet.
  • 00:07:32.100 --> 00:07:33.230
  • I haven't heard any cars,
  • 00:07:33.230 --> 00:07:35.280
  • no horns.
  • 00:07:35.280 --> 00:07:37.120

  • 00:07:37.120 --> 00:07:38.230
  • We're truly blessed for being
  • 00:07:38.230 --> 00:07:39.140
  • - Ralph: One deployment,
  • 00:07:42.230 --> 00:07:43.280
  • Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
  • 00:07:43.280 --> 00:07:46.130
  • I was the vehicle driver
  • 00:07:46.130 --> 00:07:48.000
  • of an MRAP.
  • 00:07:48.000 --> 00:07:49.270
  • I had four other people
  • 00:07:49.270 --> 00:07:50.260
  • in the vehicle with me.
  • 00:07:50.260 --> 00:07:53.080
  • I hit an IED that day, I broke
  • 00:07:53.080 --> 00:07:55.110
  • my back, and woke up in a
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:57.200
  • hospital.
  • 00:07:57.200 --> 00:07:58.290
  • It's all I remember.
  • 00:07:58.290 --> 00:08:00.200
  • - Patrick: Being a flight medic
  • 00:08:00.200 --> 00:08:01.120
  • sounds glamorous and all, but we
  • 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:03.100
  • do some pretty hairy things.
  • 00:08:03.100 --> 00:08:05.180
  • We see life and death nonstop.
  • 00:08:07.070 --> 00:08:10.070
  • The ending of my career, 4th of
  • 00:08:10.070 --> 00:08:11.280
  • July, we caught a mission about
  • 00:08:11.280 --> 00:08:13.120
  • 12 o'clock, had to go locate
  • 00:08:13.120 --> 00:08:14.290
  • where these guys were on the
  • 00:08:14.290 --> 00:08:16.270
  • side of a mountain because
  • 00:08:16.270 --> 00:08:18.060
  • nobody really had eyes on them.
  • 00:08:18.060 --> 00:08:19.130
  • And two Taliban stepped out
  • 00:08:19.130 --> 00:08:21.230
  • about, I don't know, 100 yards
  • 00:08:21.230 --> 00:08:23.060
  • from me and just opened up with
  • 00:08:23.060 --> 00:08:24.210
  • an AK.
  • 00:08:24.210 --> 00:08:26.270
  • They short hauled me to the
  • 00:08:26.270 --> 00:08:28.260
  • mountains, I popped the mountain
  • 00:08:28.260 --> 00:08:30.110
  • pretty hard, and then I ended up
  • 00:08:30.110 --> 00:08:31.290
  • in a tree.
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:33.000
  • I just climbed the tree,
  • 00:08:33.000 --> 00:08:34.090
  • unhooked my cable, pulled the
  • 00:08:34.090 --> 00:08:35.160
  • two guys out, and we got them.
  • 00:08:36.210 --> 00:08:39.210
  • - male: Put your faith
  • 00:08:44.060 --> 00:08:45.050
  • in Jesus Christ as your
  • 00:08:45.050 --> 00:08:46.030
  • Lord and Savior.
  • 00:08:46.030 --> 00:08:46.270
  • And if you believe by faith
  • 00:08:46.270 --> 00:08:48.130
  • in him, you will live with him
  • 00:08:48.130 --> 00:08:50.050
  • for all eternity.
  • 00:08:50.050 --> 00:08:51.080
  • - Ralph: Always.
  • 00:08:51.080 --> 00:08:52.010
  • - male: Do you commit to follow
  • 00:08:52.010 --> 00:08:53.170
  • him--
  • 00:08:53.170 --> 00:08:54.130
  • - Ralph: God has truly opened
  • 00:08:54.130 --> 00:08:55.110
  • up my eyes of how much he truly
  • 00:08:55.110 --> 00:08:57.190
  • does care about me because I
  • 00:08:57.190 --> 00:08:58.260
  • could have been gone, my
  • 00:08:58.260 --> 00:09:00.070
  • injuries could have been worse.
  • 00:09:00.070 --> 00:09:02.080
  • But every day, I thank him just
  • 00:09:02.080 --> 00:09:04.080
  • for a second chance to become
  • 00:09:04.080 --> 00:09:05.120
  • closer to him.
  • 00:09:05.120 --> 00:09:06.230
  • This baptism will be a first
  • 00:09:06.230 --> 00:09:08.280
  • step for the two of us in our
  • 00:09:08.280 --> 00:09:10.160
  • marriage.
  • 00:09:10.160 --> 00:09:11.100
  • We can set a strong foundation
  • 00:09:11.100 --> 00:09:13.180
  • through Christ.
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:15.160
  • - Franklin: Operation Heal Our
  • 00:09:15.160 --> 00:09:16.080
  • Patriots, there is serious
  • 00:09:16.080 --> 00:09:17.240
  • reconciliation that takes place,
  • 00:09:17.240 --> 00:09:20.140
  • counseling that takes place as
  • 00:09:20.140 --> 00:09:22.020
  • we have these marriage
  • 00:09:22.020 --> 00:09:23.030
  • enrichment classes.
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:24.190
  • And we just thank God that he
  • 00:09:24.190 --> 00:09:26.030
  • has given us this beautiful
  • 00:09:26.030 --> 00:09:28.140
  • lodge and this ministry to these
  • 00:09:28.140 --> 00:09:30.140
  • military families.
  • 00:09:30.140 --> 00:09:32.260
  • - Shelby: So many of the
  • 00:09:32.260 --> 00:09:33.280
  • couples that come here have said
  • 00:09:33.280 --> 00:09:35.060
  • that this is it for us.
  • 00:09:35.150 --> 00:09:38.150
  • This is it, this is our last
  • 00:09:38.150 --> 00:09:39.160
  • chance.
  • 00:09:39.160 --> 00:09:41.050
  • All of the chaplains and their
  • 00:09:41.050 --> 00:09:42.230
  • wives have been truly amazing,
  • 00:09:42.230 --> 00:09:45.070
  • and you get that sense that they
  • 00:09:45.070 --> 00:09:47.260
  • are here for you.
  • 00:09:47.260 --> 00:09:50.120
  • - Krys: Prior to coming here,
  • 00:09:50.120 --> 00:09:51.040
  • we were still best friends, but
  • 00:09:51.040 --> 00:09:52.260
  • we were parents.
  • 00:09:52.260 --> 00:09:54.060
  • Now, we want to be excellent
  • 00:09:54.060 --> 00:09:55.150
  • parents, we want to be excellent

  • husband and wife,
  • 00:09:56.230 --> 00:09:57.240
  • we want to be best friends,
  • 00:09:57.240 --> 00:09:59.130
  • and we're going to find that.
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:01.010
  • Our marriage is not just
  • 00:10:01.010 --> 00:10:02.070
  • her and I.
  • 00:10:02.070 --> 00:10:04.000
  • - Matt: We're going to be
  • 00:10:11.060 --> 00:10:12.030
  • talking now, Franklin, about
  • 00:10:12.030 --> 00:10:13.160
  • Liberia.
  • 00:10:13.160 --> 00:10:14.200
  • And--but I want to circle back
  • 00:10:14.200 --> 00:10:16.240
  • just for those that just tuned
  • 00:10:16.240 --> 00:10:19.070
  • in, you were here back in 1979,
  • 00:10:22.030 --> 00:10:25.030
  • and your first experience on TBN
  • 00:10:26.270 --> 00:10:29.270
  • in this studio that many years
  • 00:10:29.270 --> 00:10:31.250
  • ago, goodness, that's 30--almost
  • 00:10:31.250 --> 00:10:34.020
  • 38 years ago or so.
  • 00:10:34.020 --> 00:10:35.160
  • What would you have been talking
  • 00:10:35.160 --> 00:10:38.060
  • about?
  • 00:10:38.060 --> 00:10:38.260
  • What would--what did Paul and
  • 00:10:38.260 --> 00:10:40.060
  • Jan--they were so--what were
  • 00:10:40.060 --> 00:10:41.280
  • you--
  • 00:10:41.280 --> 00:10:44.000
  • - Franklin: Talking about what
  • 00:10:44.000 --> 00:10:44.220
  • we're talking about now.
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:45.160
  • - Matt: Just some crisis
  • 00:10:45.160 --> 00:10:46.240
  • somewhere.
  • 00:10:46.240 --> 00:10:47.210
  • - Franklin: Hasn't changed.
  • 00:10:47.210 --> 00:10:48.250
  • - Paul Crouch: You've just
  • 00:10:48.250 --> 00:10:49.170
  • returned from Bangladesh, you
  • 00:10:49.170 --> 00:10:51.170
  • said, where that awful--
  • 00:10:51.170 --> 00:10:52.280
  • - Franklin: Yes, Bangladesh.
  • 00:10:52.280 --> 00:10:54.040
  • I went to see the results of the
  • 00:10:54.040 --> 00:10:56.090
  • tidal wave when it came across
  • 00:10:56.090 --> 00:10:58.040
  • the islands a few weeks ago.
  • 00:10:58.040 --> 00:11:00.240
  • Some 30.000 people were killed.
  • 00:11:00.240 --> 00:11:02.290
  • And I'm constantly, Paul,
  • 00:11:02.290 --> 00:11:04.220
  • looking for places around the
  • 00:11:04.220 --> 00:11:05.260
  • world where there is a disaster,
  • 00:11:05.260 --> 00:11:07.290
  • where there's war, like in
  • 00:11:07.290 --> 00:11:08.270
  • Lebanon or in Southeast Asia.
  • 00:11:10.010 --> 00:11:13.010
  • I'm looking for opportunities to
  • 00:11:13.010 --> 00:11:15.010
  • invest for the gospel.
  • 00:11:15.010 --> 00:11:17.180
  • I believe in working through the
  • 00:11:17.180 --> 00:11:19.010
  • church, I believe in working
  • 00:11:19.010 --> 00:11:20.080
  • through the Christians, the
  • 00:11:20.080 --> 00:11:22.230
  • nationals, or the missionaries
  • 00:11:22.230 --> 00:11:23.250
  • that are in a country to do
  • 00:11:23.250 --> 00:11:25.160
  • relief work, but let the church
  • 00:11:25.160 --> 00:11:26.280
  • do it.
  • 00:11:26.280 --> 00:11:27.160
  • Give them the means, give them
  • 00:11:27.160 --> 00:11:28.110
  • the finances so that, when it's
  • 00:11:28.110 --> 00:11:30.210
  • all said and done, the church or
  • 00:11:30.210 --> 00:11:32.220
  • those missionaries have earned
  • 00:11:32.220 --> 00:11:34.110
  • the right to proclaim the gospel
  • 00:11:34.110 --> 00:11:36.030
  • of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:11:36.030 --> 00:11:37.140
  • I don't believe in going in and
  • 00:11:37.140 --> 00:11:38.120
  • raising my flag, the flag of my
  • 00:11:38.120 --> 00:11:40.090
  • organization, but I believe in
  • 00:11:40.090 --> 00:11:42.100
  • and quietly giving to them, and
  • 00:11:42.110 --> 00:11:45.110
  • then letting them do it.
  • 00:11:45.110 --> 00:11:46.280
  • Now, we'll send experts in to
  • 00:11:46.280 --> 00:11:47.270
  • advise them, advise the church
  • 00:11:47.270 --> 00:11:50.120
  • on how to do a food
  • 00:11:50.120 --> 00:11:51.250
  • distribution, or on how to do a
  • 00:11:51.250 --> 00:11:53.200
  • medical clinic, but yet let them
  • 00:11:53.200 --> 00:11:55.260
  • do it.
  • 00:11:55.260 --> 00:11:57.010
  • And then they can earn the right
  • 00:11:57.010 --> 00:11:58.240
  • doing that now my entire adult
  • 00:12:00.090 --> 00:12:03.090
  • life, is just taking the wars,
  • 00:12:03.090 --> 00:12:05.100
  • taking the famines, taking the
  • 00:12:05.100 --> 00:12:07.010
  • diseases of this world, and then
  • 00:12:07.010 --> 00:12:09.100
  • trying to meet it
  • 00:12:09.100 --> 00:12:10.260
  • in Jesus' name.
  • 00:12:10.260 --> 00:12:12.040
  • I just was last week in Liberia,
  • 00:12:12.040 --> 00:12:14.170
  • where we dedicated a hospital
  • 00:12:14.170 --> 00:12:16.220
  • that we have built outside of
  • 00:12:16.220 --> 00:12:19.000
  • Monrovia.
  • 00:12:19.000 --> 00:12:20.140
  • But as you may remember, 2 years
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:22.000
  • ago, 2014, there was the Ebola
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:25.160
  • outbreak.
  • 00:12:25.160 --> 00:12:27.160
  • And we had been working in
  • 00:12:27.160 --> 00:12:28.100
  • Liberia since the war, the civil
  • 00:12:28.100 --> 00:12:29.150
  • war.
  • 00:12:29.150 --> 00:12:30.030
  • And we'd been working there,
  • 00:12:30.030 --> 00:12:32.030
  • been there about 10 years.
  • 00:12:32.030 --> 00:12:34.190
  • And when Ebola came, none of my
  • 00:12:35.020 --> 00:12:38.020
  • staff were there to fight Ebola.
  • 00:12:38.020 --> 00:12:40.090
  • They were all there doing--we're
  • 00:12:40.090 --> 00:12:41.090
  • doing agricultural projects, we
  • 00:12:41.090 --> 00:12:43.130
  • were working with widows, we had
  • 00:12:43.130 --> 00:12:44.230
  • all kinds of programs, but not
  • 00:12:44.230 --> 00:12:46.170
  • Ebola.
  • 00:12:46.170 --> 00:12:47.230
  • And there was no one in the
  • 00:12:47.230 --> 00:12:50.000
  • country that was willing to take
  • 00:12:50.000 --> 00:12:51.270
  • on Ebola.
  • 00:12:51.270 --> 00:12:53.110
  • And so, we just stopped what we
  • 00:12:53.110 --> 00:12:54.190
  • did, and all of our staff
  • 00:12:54.190 --> 00:12:56.130
  • started focusing on Ebola.
  • 00:12:56.130 --> 00:12:58.140
  • So, we had the old hospital
  • 00:12:58.140 --> 00:13:00.020
  • called Elwa, and we took the
  • 00:13:00.200 --> 00:13:03.200
  • chapel at Elwa and made it
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:05.100
  • a--what do they call it an
  • 00:13:05.100 --> 00:13:07.000
  • ETU, an Ebola Treatment Unit.
  • 00:13:07.000 --> 00:13:09.160
  • And really what an Ebola
  • 00:13:09.160 --> 00:13:10.160
  • Treatment Unit is, you bring a
  • 00:13:10.160 --> 00:13:11.290
  • person in that has Ebola, you
  • 00:13:12.000 --> 00:13:15.000
  • have to be completely covered in
  • 00:13:15.000 --> 00:13:16.220
  • a Tyvek suit.
  • 00:13:16.220 --> 00:13:18.100
  • You actually have the Tyvek suit
  • 00:13:18.100 --> 00:13:19.220
  • on, you have two layers of
  • 00:13:19.220 --> 00:13:21.180
  • gloves, you have duct tape,
  • 00:13:21.180 --> 00:13:23.140
  • there's no open area at all.
  • 00:13:23.140 --> 00:13:26.090
  • And you have a hood, and that's
  • 00:13:26.090 --> 00:13:27.220
  • duct taped down.
  • 00:13:27.220 --> 00:13:29.000
  • And you can only work in that
  • 00:13:29.000 --> 00:13:31.130
  • heat for about 20 minutes and
  • 00:13:32.000 --> 00:13:35.000
  • you would pass out.
  • 00:13:35.000 --> 00:13:36.180
  • So, you had to get back, and get
  • 00:13:36.180 --> 00:13:38.110
  • out of that Tyvek suit
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:39.130
  • after 20 minutes.
  • 00:13:39.130 --> 00:13:40.160
  • But a person comes in with
  • 00:13:40.160 --> 00:13:41.150
  • Ebola, all you can do is make
  • 00:13:41.150 --> 00:13:42.110
  • them comfortable.
  • 00:13:42.110 --> 00:13:43.190
  • Give them water, IV fluids.
  • 00:13:45.040 --> 00:13:48.040
  • But basically, all you could do
  • 00:13:48.040 --> 00:13:50.250
  • was keep them comfortable until
  • 00:13:50.250 --> 00:13:53.110
  • they died.
  • 00:13:53.110 --> 00:13:54.140
  • And one of our doctors,
  • 00:13:54.140 --> 00:13:57.010
  • Dr. Kent Brentley,
  • 00:13:57.010 --> 00:14:00.020
  • I was in Alaska working
  • 00:14:00.020 --> 00:14:01.050
  • at a Samaritan's Purse
  • 00:14:01.050 --> 00:14:02.050
  • project there, and I got a phone
  • 00:14:02.050 --> 00:14:03.070
  • call that Dr. Brentley had
  • 00:14:03.070 --> 00:14:05.040
  • Ebola, and I knew it was
  • 00:14:05.040 --> 00:14:07.130
  • a death sentence.
  • 00:14:07.130 --> 00:14:08.080
  • There was no way we were going
  • 00:14:09.000 --> 00:14:12.000
  • to be able to save his life.
  • 00:14:12.000 --> 00:14:12.280
  • And Matt, I didn't even know how
  • 00:14:12.290 --> 00:14:15.290
  • to pray.
  • 00:14:15.290 --> 00:14:17.090
  • I just, "God, why?"
  • 00:14:19.000 --> 00:14:22.000
  • A young doctor with a wife and
  • 00:14:22.000 --> 00:14:23.180
  • kids, and he's infected with
  • 00:14:23.180 --> 00:14:25.260
  • Ebola?
  • 00:14:25.260 --> 00:14:27.220
  • I wanted to get him back to this
  • 00:14:27.220 --> 00:14:29.230
  • country.
  • 00:14:29.230 --> 00:14:30.130
  • We had an insurance policy that
  • 00:14:30.130 --> 00:14:31.120
  • would go anywhere in the world
  • 00:14:31.120 --> 00:14:32.210
  • with a private plane to pick a
  • 00:14:32.210 --> 00:14:33.270
  • person up.
  • 00:14:33.270 --> 00:14:35.290
  • And they said, "Where's your
  • 00:14:35.290 --> 00:14:37.180
  • patient?"
  • 00:14:37.180 --> 00:14:38.110
  • "Well, he's in Liberia."
  • 00:14:38.110 --> 00:14:39.160
  • "What does he have?"
  • 00:14:39.160 --> 00:14:40.100
  • "He has Ebola."
  • 00:14:40.100 --> 00:14:41.040
  • "Oh, we're not going to--
  • 00:14:41.040 --> 00:14:42.070
  • we're not going to Liberia
  • 00:14:42.070 --> 00:14:43.030
  • to pick him up."
  • 00:14:43.030 --> 00:14:44.130
  • "But we have a policy."
  • 00:14:44.130 --> 00:14:46.090
  • "Sue us, we're not going."
  • 00:14:46.090 --> 00:14:49.050
  • And we realized that there was
  • 00:14:49.050 --> 00:14:51.230
  • no way we were going to be able
  • 00:14:51.230 --> 00:14:53.070
  • to get him back.
  • 00:14:53.070 --> 00:14:53.290
  • The airlines weren't going to
  • 00:14:53.290 --> 00:14:54.270
  • fly him.
  • 00:14:54.270 --> 00:14:55.260
  • We were talking to one man at
  • 00:14:55.260 --> 00:14:57.290
  • the State Department, and this
  • 00:14:57.290 --> 00:15:00.160
  • guy said, "There is one asset
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:02.210
  • that the government controls, a
  • 00:15:02.210 --> 00:15:05.030
  • plane that can carry," I think
  • 00:15:05.030 --> 00:15:06.220
  • they call it, "a level four
  • 00:15:06.220 --> 00:15:07.250
  • infected person."
  • 00:15:07.250 --> 00:15:10.070
  • And we asked, "Well, who?
  • 00:15:10.070 --> 00:15:11.270
  • Who controls that asset?"
  • 00:15:11.270 --> 00:15:13.260
  • The guy said, "I do."
  • 00:15:13.260 --> 00:15:15.200
  • He said, "You have to pay
  • 00:15:15.200 --> 00:15:16.130
  • for it.
  • 00:15:16.130 --> 00:15:17.110
  • But if you pay for it,
  • 00:15:17.110 --> 00:15:18.130
  • we'll send our plane."
  • 00:15:18.130 --> 00:15:20.100
  • And, "Where do we send the
  • 00:15:20.100 --> 00:15:22.100
  • money?
  • 00:15:22.100 --> 00:15:23.040
  • We'll do it right now, today."
  • 00:15:23.040 --> 00:15:23.250
  • We did a wire transfer, and they
  • 00:15:23.250 --> 00:15:25.210
  • sent the plane to go get him,
  • 00:15:25.210 --> 00:15:28.110
  • but it had pressurization
  • 00:15:28.110 --> 00:15:29.130
  • problems, had to turn around and
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:30.120
  • come back.
  • 00:15:30.120 --> 00:15:32.090
  • And he was--he's now been
  • 00:15:32.090 --> 00:15:35.030
  • infected for ten--or for nine
  • 00:15:35.030 --> 00:15:36.110
  • days--excuse me, a week.
  • 00:15:36.110 --> 00:15:37.210
  • And he's getting weaker, and
  • 00:15:37.210 --> 00:15:39.140
  • weaker, and weaker.
  • 00:15:39.140 --> 00:15:41.110
  • And Matt, a guy,
  • 00:15:41.110 --> 00:15:42.030
  • a person showed up from the
  • 00:15:42.060 --> 00:15:45.060
  • National Institute of Health,
  • 00:15:45.100 --> 00:15:48.100
  • said, "We have a drug that's
  • 00:15:48.110 --> 00:15:51.110
  • never been tried on a human.
  • 00:15:51.110 --> 00:15:54.080
  • Do you all want it?"
  • 00:15:54.080 --> 00:15:56.070
  • And we asked Dr. Brentley if he
  • 00:15:56.070 --> 00:15:57.240
  • would take it, and he said,
  • 00:15:57.240 --> 00:15:59.190
  • "Give it to a lady by the name
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:01.140
  • of Nancy Writebol, a nurse that
  • 00:16:01.140 --> 00:16:03.040
  • had got Ebola."
  • 00:16:03.040 --> 00:16:04.140
  • So, we had two people down with
  • 00:16:04.140 --> 00:16:05.090
  • Ebola.
  • 00:16:05.090 --> 00:16:07.110
  • And the plane was coming to get
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:09.070
  • him, but it had to turn around
  • 00:16:09.070 --> 00:16:10.270
  • and go back.
  • 00:16:10.270 --> 00:16:12.190
  • And the plane was supposed to be
  • 00:16:12.190 --> 00:16:13.200
  • there Thursday of that week.
  • 00:16:13.200 --> 00:16:16.110
  • And that week, that Thursday
  • 00:16:16.110 --> 00:16:19.020
  • night, he began to die.
  • 00:16:19.020 --> 00:16:21.110
  • And there were nothing we could
  • 00:16:21.110 --> 00:16:22.080
  • do, we were losing him.
  • 00:16:22.080 --> 00:16:24.180
  • And we put one of those bags of
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:26.160
  • ZMapp it's called.
  • 00:16:26.160 --> 00:16:28.050
  • A treatment was three bags.
  • 00:16:28.050 --> 00:16:30.200
  • It takes about 9 hours to go in,
  • 00:16:30.200 --> 00:16:32.230
  • and then you wait 2 days, you
  • 00:16:32.230 --> 00:16:34.270
  • put another bag in, 9 hours,
  • 00:16:34.270 --> 00:16:37.080
  • wait 2 days, put another bag in.
  • 00:16:37.080 --> 00:16:39.140
  • Began to lose him, and the
  • 00:16:39.140 --> 00:16:41.090
  • doctors there made the decision
  • 00:16:41.090 --> 00:16:42.120
  • to put the ZMapp that's never
  • 00:16:42.120 --> 00:16:44.120
  • been put in a human being
  • 00:16:44.120 --> 00:16:45.170
  • before.
  • 00:16:45.170 --> 00:16:46.270
  • And when they put that into his
  • 00:16:46.270 --> 00:16:47.290
  • arm, within minutes he went into
  • 00:16:51.110 --> 00:16:54.110
  • convulsions, and began to
  • 00:16:54.110 --> 00:16:56.140
  • violently shake in his bed.
  • 00:16:56.140 --> 00:16:59.090
  • And so, our doctors were afraid
  • 00:16:59.090 --> 00:17:02.070
  • what was happening to him.
  • 00:17:02.070 --> 00:17:03.230
  • So, they called the
  • 00:17:03.230 --> 00:17:04.280
  • manufacturers and they said,
  • 00:17:04.280 --> 00:17:06.080
  • "No, we saw this in primates.
  • 00:17:06.080 --> 00:17:08.130
  • It's the antibodies fighting the
  • 00:17:08.130 --> 00:17:10.040
  • Ebola.
  • 00:17:10.040 --> 00:17:11.150
  • Leave him alone."
  • 00:17:11.150 --> 00:17:13.120
  • Matt, 40 minutes later,
  • 00:17:13.280 --> 00:17:16.280
  • he got up out of bed and went
  • 00:17:16.280 --> 00:17:18.090
  • to the bathroom.
  • 00:17:18.090 --> 00:17:19.020
  • He hadn't been out of bed
  • 00:17:19.020 --> 00:17:19.210
  • in 3 days.
  • 00:17:19.210 --> 00:17:21.210
  • It was that dramatic, it was
  • 00:17:21.210 --> 00:17:22.280
  • that quick.
  • 00:17:22.280 --> 00:17:24.130
  • God showed up.
  • 00:17:24.130 --> 00:17:26.090
  • I mean, God showed up.
  • 00:17:26.090 --> 00:17:28.020
  • And the next day, the plane
  • 00:17:28.020 --> 00:17:30.100
  • came, brought him back.
  • 00:17:30.100 --> 00:17:31.210
  • When they took him to Emory
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:32.120
  • University in Georgia, he walked
  • 00:17:32.120 --> 00:17:34.120
  • off the ambulance.
  • 00:17:34.120 --> 00:17:35.260
  • They didn't carry him in a
  • 00:17:35.260 --> 00:17:36.180
  • stretcher, he walked off.
  • 00:17:36.180 --> 00:17:38.200
  • But, we've got a documentary
  • 00:17:38.200 --> 00:17:41.100
  • that will be out next year, and
  • 00:17:41.270 --> 00:17:44.270
  • it's called "Facing Darkness."
  • 00:17:44.270 --> 00:17:47.020
  • And it's the story of how God
  • 00:17:47.100 --> 00:17:50.100
  • - male announcer: This was an
  • 00:17:55.130 --> 00:17:56.070
  • unfolding catastrophe.
  • 00:17:56.070 --> 00:17:57.190
  • - female: The numbers of new
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:17:58.100
  • cases and deaths are still
  • 00:17:58.100 --> 00:17:59.220
  • rising.
  • 00:18:00.070 --> 00:18:03.070
  • - Franklin: Ebola is the
  • 00:18:03.070 --> 00:18:04.000
  • - male: The disease is out of

  • - male: Action was needed
  • 00:18:11.260 --> 00:18:12.150
  • immediately.
  • 00:18:12.150 --> 00:18:13.290
  • - male: All together, the
  • 00:18:13.290 --> 00:18:14.240
  • family member that I lose, 17.
  • 00:18:15.240 --> 00:18:18.240
  • - Franklin: God has called us
  • 00:18:18.240 --> 00:18:19.180
  • to care for the dying, to care
  • 00:18:19.180 --> 00:18:20.240
  • for those that are suffering.
  • 00:18:20.240 --> 00:18:22.180
  • - female: We can't say we're
  • 00:18:22.180 --> 00:18:23.090
  • Samaritan's Purse and not help.
  • 00:18:23.090 --> 00:18:25.200
  • - male: I was confident that
  • 00:18:25.200 --> 00:18:26.130
  • what we were doing was the right
  • 00:18:26.130 --> 00:18:27.270
  • thing to do.
  • 00:18:27.270 --> 00:18:29.240
  • - Kent Brentley: I don't think
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:30.160
  • I was scared yet.
  • 00:18:30.210 --> 00:18:33.210
  • - male: As the epidemic
  • 00:18:38.050 --> 00:18:39.070
  • escalated, we were just
  • 00:18:39.070 --> 00:18:40.230
  • desperately trying to stay one
  • 00:18:40.230 --> 00:18:42.080
  • step ahead.
  • 00:18:42.080 --> 00:18:44.000
  • - Franklin: My phone rang, and
  • 00:18:44.000 --> 00:18:44.250
  • Ken Isaacs said, "One of our
  • 00:18:44.250 --> 00:18:46.050
  • doctors, Kent Brentley, has
  • 00:18:46.130 --> 00:18:49.130
  • Ebola.
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:51.160
  • - Nancy Writebol: David looked
  • 00:18:51.160 --> 00:18:52.080
  • at me and he said, "You too have
  • 00:18:52.080 --> 00:18:54.010
  • Ebola."
  • 00:18:54.010 --> 00:18:56.020
  • - male: And then Barbara was
  • 00:18:56.020 --> 00:18:57.020
  • diagnosed with Ebola.
  • 00:18:57.020 --> 00:18:58.150
  • - male: There was a high
  • 00:18:58.150 --> 00:18:59.110
  • likelihood her team members were
  • 00:18:59.110 --> 00:19:00.180
  • going to die.
  • 00:19:00.180 --> 00:19:01.280
  • - female: I don't know how to
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:02.190
  • describe how afraid we were.
  • 00:19:02.190 --> 00:19:04.220
  • - male: But we still went in
  • 00:19:04.220 --> 00:19:05.180
  • hour after hour, taking care of
  • 00:19:05.180 --> 00:19:07.170
  • the Liberians, and taking care
  • 00:19:07.170 --> 00:19:08.270
  • - Franklin: We're there to save
  • 00:19:12.050 --> 00:19:12.270
  • life.
  • 00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:14.060
  • We're there in your name.
  • 00:19:14.060 --> 00:19:16.210
  • - female: Despite the fact that
  • 00:19:22.050 --> 00:19:23.100
  • things were out of control, we
  • 00:19:23.100 --> 00:19:24.250
  • [music]
  • 00:19:27.000 --> 00:19:28.060
  • Oh God, you never
  • 00:19:30.040 --> 00:19:33.040
  • leave my side
  • 00:19:33.040 --> 00:19:34.260
  • - female: My greatest fear is
  • 00:19:34.260 --> 00:19:35.180
  • that I would have to raise my
  • 00:19:35.180 --> 00:19:36.140
  • kids alone.
  • 00:19:36.140 --> 00:19:37.210
  • - female: I felt broken.
  • 00:19:37.210 --> 00:19:38.100
  • Who is going to take care of my
  • 00:19:38.100 --> 00:19:39.180
  • - male: God puts you in places
  • 00:19:42.180 --> 00:19:43.210
  • and supplies the strength to
  • 00:19:43.210 --> 00:19:46.170
  • - male: If they're on our team,
  • 00:19:50.010 --> 00:19:51.070
  • they are our blood.
  • 00:19:51.070 --> 00:19:52.230
  • No matter what it took, let's
  • 00:19:52.230 --> 00:19:53.180
  • get them out.
  • 00:19:53.180 --> 00:19:55.150
  • - Franklin: Jesus Christ didn't
  • 00:19:59.180 --> 00:20:00.100
  • run.
  • 00:20:00.100 --> 00:20:01.230
  • We run to the fire, we don't run
  • 00:20:01.230 --> 00:20:03.140
  • - Franklin: It's an incredible
  • 00:20:14.030 --> 00:20:17.030
  • story how this ZMapp came out of
  • 00:20:17.260 --> 00:20:20.260
  • nowhere.
  • 00:20:20.260 --> 00:20:21.170
  • It had been given to a man by
  • 00:20:21.170 --> 00:20:22.130
  • name of Dr. Khan
  • 00:20:22.130 --> 00:20:24.170
  • in Sierra Leone.
  • 00:20:24.170 --> 00:20:26.080
  • He was the world's foremost
  • 00:20:26.080 --> 00:20:27.140
  • doctor on Ebola, and he had
  • 00:20:27.140 --> 00:20:28.230
  • Ebola.
  • 00:20:28.230 --> 00:20:30.250
  • But he was working with another
  • 00:20:30.250 --> 00:20:31.250
  • organization, and the lawyers
  • 00:20:31.250 --> 00:20:34.060
  • for that organization said,
  • 00:20:34.060 --> 00:20:36.020
  • "It's an experimental drug,
  • 00:20:36.020 --> 00:20:38.160
  • you can't give it to him."
  • 00:20:38.160 --> 00:20:40.080
  • And he died.
  • 00:20:40.080 --> 00:20:41.260
  • And so, here this experimental
  • 00:20:41.260 --> 00:20:43.020
  • drug was in Sierra Leone, and
  • 00:20:43.020 --> 00:20:44.290
  • they sent it to us.
  • 00:20:44.290 --> 00:20:46.210
  • It went by canoe, it went by
  • 00:20:46.210 --> 00:20:48.130
  • 4-wheel drive, it ended up in an
  • 00:20:48.130 --> 00:20:50.050
  • airplane.
  • 00:20:50.050 --> 00:20:51.090
  • And it was frozen to, like,
  • 00:20:51.090 --> 00:20:52.270
  • 20 below 0.
  • 00:20:52.270 --> 00:20:54.280
  • So, when you open this thing,
  • 00:20:54.280 --> 00:20:56.270
  • I mean, the moisture,
  • 00:20:56.270 --> 00:20:58.220
  • the vapor that came out looked
  • 00:20:58.220 --> 00:21:00.080
  • like something out of a
  • 00:21:00.080 --> 00:21:01.050
  • Alfred Hitchcock movie.
  • 00:21:01.050 --> 00:21:03.080
  • But it was mice blood, and it
  • 00:21:03.120 --> 00:21:06.120
  • was cultivated on tobacco leaves
  • 00:21:06.120 --> 00:21:09.030
  • that grew these antibodies
  • 00:21:09.030 --> 00:21:11.120
  • for Ebola.
  • 00:21:11.120 --> 00:21:12.120
  • So, when they asked me,
  • 00:21:12.120 --> 00:21:14.230
  • "Franklin, should we put this
  • 00:21:14.230 --> 00:21:15.190
  • in him?"
  • 00:21:15.190 --> 00:21:16.080
  • I said, "It's made from
  • 00:21:16.080 --> 00:21:16.280
  • mice blood?
  • 00:21:16.280 --> 00:21:18.010
  • You've got to be kidding me."
  • 00:21:18.010 --> 00:21:19.060
  • I said, "Are you all serious?"
  • 00:21:19.060 --> 00:21:20.070
  • I thought they were maybe
  • 00:21:20.070 --> 00:21:21.100
  • some kind of sick joke.
  • 00:21:21.100 --> 00:21:22.200
  • They said, "No."
  • 00:21:22.200 --> 00:21:24.040
  • And so, God brought this ZMapp,
  • 00:21:26.080 --> 00:21:29.080
  • and it worked, and it saved
  • 00:21:29.080 --> 00:21:30.230
  • Dr. Brentley's life, and it
  • 00:21:30.230 --> 00:21:32.000
  • saved Nancy Writebol's life.
  • 00:21:32.000 --> 00:21:34.150
  • And they're--and Nancy Writebol
  • 00:21:34.150 --> 00:21:36.060
  • is back on the field.
  • 00:21:36.060 --> 00:21:37.110
  • I saw her last week, she's back
  • 00:21:37.110 --> 00:21:38.080
  • in Liberia.
  • 00:21:38.080 --> 00:21:40.160
  • But we've just finished
  • 00:21:40.160 --> 00:21:41.240
  • dedicating the hospital, state
  • 00:21:41.240 --> 00:21:43.260
  • of the art hospital there in
  • 00:21:43.260 --> 00:21:45.210
  • western Africa.
  • 00:21:45.210 --> 00:21:47.210
  • The president of the country was
  • 00:21:47.210 --> 00:21:49.020
  • there, the vice president was
  • 00:21:49.020 --> 00:21:50.070
  • there, it was a great
  • 00:21:50.070 --> 00:21:51.110
  • celebration.
  • 00:21:51.110 --> 00:21:52.050
  • But it was a thanksgiving
  • 00:21:52.050 --> 00:21:53.000
  • service, thanking God for not
  • 00:21:53.000 --> 00:21:53.290
  • only saving the life of the
  • 00:21:53.290 --> 00:21:56.110
  • Liberian people, but giving us

  • 00:22:01.230 --> 00:22:02.200
  • happening there in Liberia with

  • Franklin Graham's Samaritan's

  • Morning by morning
  • 00:22:19.200 --> 00:22:22.200
  • - Franklin: Right now, I'm in
  • 00:22:29.180 --> 00:22:30.090
  • Liberia, right outside of
  • 00:22:30.090 --> 00:22:32.030
  • Monrovia, at Elwa Hospital.
  • 00:22:32.030 --> 00:22:35.020
  • And this is a hospital that's
  • 00:22:35.020 --> 00:22:35.270
  • been here for about 60 years,
  • 00:22:35.270 --> 00:22:38.030
  • and suffered a lot over the
  • 00:22:38.030 --> 00:22:39.170
  • years.
  • 00:22:39.170 --> 00:22:40.040
  • During the war, this country was

  • war.
  • 00:22:44.030 --> 00:22:45.100
  • We started to help Elwa Hospital
  • 00:22:45.100 --> 00:22:47.270
  • to rebuild and to regain its

  • 00:25:25.040 --> 00:25:26.190
  • over the world for all these
  • 00:25:26.190 --> 00:25:29.000
  • many years, and the TBN partners
  • 00:25:29.000 --> 00:25:30.060
  • have been there to help.
  • 00:25:30.060 --> 00:25:32.080
  • Just in final thoughts, please
  • 00:25:32.080 --> 00:25:34.250
  • - Franklin: Well, first of all,
  • 00:25:37.230 --> 00:25:39.070
  • I want to say thank you to the
  • 00:25:39.070 --> 00:25:40.150
  • TBN family and partners for so
  • 00:25:41.090 --> 00:25:44.090
  • many years of--that you have
  • 00:25:44.090 --> 00:25:46.090
  • helped, through TBN, people
  • 00:25:47.290 --> 00:25:50.290
  • around the world.
  • 00:25:50.290 --> 00:25:52.100
  • You have partnered with
  • 00:25:52.100 --> 00:25:53.190
  • Samaritan's Purse time and time
  • 00:25:53.190 --> 00:25:55.010
  • again, and so we're so grateful
  • 00:25:55.010 --> 00:25:56.060
  • and so thankful for the
  • 00:25:56.060 --> 00:25:57.290
  • friendship of this ministry.
  • 00:25:57.290 --> 00:26:00.260
  • And of course, your mom and dad
  • 00:26:00.260 --> 00:26:01.250
  • were such great, great friends,
  • 00:26:01.250 --> 00:26:04.060
  • and we miss them and love them.
  • 00:26:04.060 --> 00:26:06.070
  • But we're grateful to God for
  • 00:26:06.070 --> 00:26:07.140
  • the opportunities that he gives
  • 00:26:07.140 --> 00:26:08.180
  • us.
  • 00:26:08.180 --> 00:26:09.160
  • But I want all of you to know
  • 00:26:09.160 --> 00:26:11.050
  • that God loves you, and he cares
  • 00:26:11.050 --> 00:26:12.170
  • for you.
  • 00:26:12.170 --> 00:26:13.280
  • And he sent his Son from heaven
  • 00:26:13.280 --> 00:26:15.000
  • to this earth for your sins.
  • 00:26:15.000 --> 00:26:16.290
  • And that's the problem the world
  • 00:26:16.290 --> 00:26:17.290
  • has, we have a sin problem, and
  • 00:26:17.290 --> 00:26:20.000
  • sin has infected the entire
  • 00:26:20.000 --> 00:26:21.170
  • human race.
  • 00:26:21.170 --> 00:26:23.140
  • But God loves us, he made us, he
  • 00:26:23.140 --> 00:26:24.280
  • created us, and he doesn't want
  • 00:26:24.280 --> 00:26:26.240
  • us to be separate from him.
  • 00:26:26.240 --> 00:26:28.250
  • He wants to have fellowship with
  • 00:26:28.250 --> 00:26:29.290
  • us, but sin is a barrier, it's a
  • 00:26:29.290 --> 00:26:31.200
  • wall, like a brick wall that we
  • 00:26:31.200 --> 00:26:33.190
  • can't penetrate.
  • 00:26:33.190 --> 00:26:35.210
  • But only God, through faith in
  • 00:26:35.210 --> 00:26:38.170
  • his Son Jesus Christ, can that
  • 00:26:38.170 --> 00:26:39.280
  • wall be broken down.
  • 00:26:39.280 --> 00:26:42.050
  • And I was 22 years old when I
  • 00:26:42.050 --> 00:26:44.190
  • put my faith and trust in Jesus
  • 00:26:44.190 --> 00:26:45.230
  • Christ, and God heard my prayer,
  • 00:26:46.040 --> 00:26:49.040
  • and he forgave my sins.
  • 00:26:49.040 --> 00:26:50.090
  • And he'll forgive your sins, and
  • 00:26:50.090 --> 00:26:51.200
  • he'll cleanse your life, and
  • 00:26:51.200 --> 00:26:53.090
  • make you a new person.
  • 00:26:53.090 --> 00:26:55.070
  • But you've got to be willing to
  • 00:26:55.070 --> 00:26:56.250
  • come to God through faith in his
  • 00:26:56.250 --> 00:26:59.110
  • Son, Jesus Christ.
  • 00:26:59.110 --> 00:27:01.000
  • The Bible says, "If you just
  • 00:27:01.000 --> 00:27:02.060
  • believe in the name of the Lord
  • 00:27:02.060 --> 00:27:03.140
  • Jesus Christ, you'll be saved."
  • 00:27:03.140 --> 00:27:05.130
  • And if you've never done that,
  • 00:27:05.130 --> 00:27:06.190
  • you can do it right now.
  • 00:27:06.190 --> 00:27:07.150
  • Just pray this prayer right now,
  • 00:27:07.150 --> 00:27:09.000
  • wherever you are.
  • 00:27:09.000 --> 00:27:09.210
  • If you've never invited Christ
  • 00:27:09.210 --> 00:27:10.180
  • into your heart, do it right
  • 00:27:10.180 --> 00:27:11.160
  • now.
  • 00:27:11.160 --> 00:27:12.100
  • Just say, "Dear God, I'm a
  • 00:27:12.100 --> 00:27:13.200
  • sinner.
  • 00:27:13.200 --> 00:27:14.140
  • I'm sorry, forgive me.
  • 00:27:14.140 --> 00:27:17.060
  • I believe that Jesus Christ is
  • 00:27:17.060 --> 00:27:18.200
  • your Son.
  • 00:27:18.200 --> 00:27:19.220
  • I want to trust him as my
  • 00:27:19.220 --> 00:27:20.240
  • Savior.
  • 00:27:20.240 --> 00:27:22.160
  • I want to invite him to come
  • 00:27:22.160 --> 00:27:23.140
  • into my heart, to take control
  • 00:27:23.140 --> 00:27:26.120
  • of my life from this moment
  • 00:27:26.120 --> 00:27:29.080
  • forever, and I pray this in
  • 00:27:29.080 --> 00:27:32.030
  • Jesus' name, amen."
  • 00:27:33.190 --> 00:27:36.190
  • Call that number on the screen
  • 00:27:36.190 --> 00:27:37.150
  • if you prayed that prayer.
  • 00:27:37.150 --> 00:27:38.260
  • They've got counselors right
  • 00:27:38.260 --> 00:27:39.260
  • here who will take your call,
  • 00:27:39.260 --> 00:27:41.110
  • want to hear from you.
  • 00:27:41.110 --> 00:27:43.240
  • But know that God loves you, and
  • 00:27:43.240 --> 00:27:46.060
  • TBN loves you as well.
  • 00:27:46.060 --> 00:27:47.210
  • Thank you.
  • 00:27:47.210 --> 00:27:48.200
  • - Matt: Wow.
  • 00:27:48.200 --> 00:27:49.240
  • The old adage that many things
  • 00:27:49.240 --> 00:27:52.240
  • change, but many things remain
  • 00:27:52.240 --> 00:27:54.210
  • the same.
  • 00:27:54.210 --> 00:27:56.040
  • This studio looks a little
  • 00:27:56.040 --> 00:27:58.150
  • different, styles change, the
  • 00:27:58.150 --> 00:28:01.070
  • way you do your crusades
  • 00:28:01.070 --> 00:28:03.030
  • sometimes will change here and
  • 00:28:03.030 --> 00:28:04.230
  • there, the way TBN's programming
  • 00:28:04.230 --> 00:28:06.260
  • is will change, and looks
  • 00:28:06.260 --> 00:28:09.010
  • change, and styles change.
  • 00:28:09.010 --> 00:28:10.260
  • But one thing doesn't change.
  • 00:28:10.260 --> 00:28:12.130
  • We're talking about crisis
  • 00:28:12.130 --> 00:28:14.200
  • around the world, and God's love
  • 00:28:14.200 --> 00:28:15.260
  • extending to people.
  • 00:28:15.260 --> 00:28:17.240
  • And we're talking about Jesus,
  • 00:28:17.240 --> 00:28:19.160
  • and how he can change every
  • 00:28:19.160 --> 00:28:20.170
  • life.
  • 00:28:20.170 --> 00:28:21.070
  • So, thank you, Franklin.
  • 00:28:21.070 --> 00:28:22.160
  • I know there'll be another
  • 00:28:22.160 --> 00:28:24.130
  • crisis around the world, the
  • 00:28:24.130 --> 00:28:26.180
  • Lord said it, "Tribulation
  • 00:28:26.180 --> 00:28:27.200
  • you'll have."
  • 00:28:27.200 --> 00:28:28.270
  • And it just seems like that your
  • 00:28:28.270 --> 00:28:30.240
  • organization, Samaritan's Purse,
  • 00:28:30.240 --> 00:28:33.000
  • is always right in the middle.
  • 00:28:33.000 --> 00:28:34.110
  • And then TBN partners are always
  • 00:28:34.110 --> 00:28:36.170
  • right behind you to help you, so
  • 00:28:36.170 --> 00:28:38.040
  • thank you for being here.
  • 00:28:38.040 --> 00:28:39.150
  • God bless you, my friend.
  • 00:28:39.150 --> 00:28:40.060
  • - Franklin: Thank you, Matt.
  • 00:28:40.060 --> 00:28:41.120
  • - Matt: Good to have you.
  • 00:28:41.120 --> 00:28:42.010
  • Thanks for coming out to LA.
  • 00:28:42.010 --> 00:28:42.210
  • Yeah, I love it.
  • 00:28:42.210 --> 00:28:45.030
  • We have good weather.
  • 00:28:45.030 --> 00:28:45.290
  • - Franklin: It's beautiful
  • 00:28:45.290 --> 00:28:46.190
  • weather.
  • 00:28:46.190 --> 00:28:47.150
  • - Franklin: We'll see you next
  • 00:28:47.150 --> 00:28:48.070
