  • last year my father was in the hospital
  • 00:00:03.040 --> 00:00:06.110
  • dealing with a major health challenge.
  • 00:00:06.110 --> 00:00:08.150
  • But, this year we'll be celebrating his
  • 00:00:08.150 --> 00:00:12.060
  • one year anniversary of victory.
  • 00:00:12.060 --> 00:00:15.110
  • We are so excited because all this week on
  • 00:00:15.110 --> 00:00:17.280
  • Living by Faith we'll show how we
  • 00:00:17.280 --> 00:00:19.240
  • celebrated him.
  • 00:00:19.240 --> 00:00:21.010
  • We'll show how we worship God for what
  • 00:00:21.010 --> 00:00:24.170
  • has happened in my dads life
  • 00:00:24.170 --> 00:00:26.110
  • and what has happened for our ministry
  • 00:00:26.110 --> 00:00:28.090
  • because this is a great thing and we are
  • 00:00:28.090 --> 00:00:30.150
  • so excited to celebrate Dr. Mike.
  • 00:00:30.150 --> 00:00:34.080
  • He's an awesome man of God.
  • 00:00:34.080 --> 00:00:35.250
  • I know he's my dad and I could be
  • 00:00:35.250 --> 00:00:37.090
  • a little bias but he truly is an awesome
  • 00:00:37.090 --> 00:00:40.180
  • man of God.
  • 00:00:40.180 --> 00:00:42.020
  • So this week just sit back, relax, call your friends,
  • 00:00:42.020 --> 00:00:44.130
  • tell them, Hey watch this anniversary celebration
  • 00:00:44.130 --> 00:00:47.080
  • for Dr. Mike because not only is it a celebration
  • 00:00:47.080 --> 00:00:49.270
  • but it will also encourage you to have faith
  • 00:00:49.270 --> 00:00:52.170
  • for the process.
  • 00:00:52.170 --> 00:00:54.120
  • Enjoy the show.
  • 00:00:54.120 --> 00:00:55.250
  • - Tonight, can faith help heal?
  • 00:01:28.050 --> 00:01:30.110
  • That's what some doctors are saying
  • 00:01:30.110 --> 00:01:31.230
  • after a local pastor who was about to die
  • 00:01:31.230 --> 00:01:34.240
  • made a miraculous recovery.
  • 00:01:34.240 --> 00:01:36.270
  • - I've never seen a man of God in a weak state like that.
  • 00:01:36.270 --> 00:01:41.270
  • Technically by numbers, he should be dead.
  • 00:01:42.240 --> 00:01:46.280
  • - The Devil tried to sucker-punch us as it was
  • 00:01:46.280 --> 00:01:48.260
  • because had Brittney never made it
  • 00:01:48.260 --> 00:01:50.230
  • to the household on Wednesday night
  • 00:01:50.230 --> 00:01:52.270
  • to pick him up to the hospital,
  • 00:01:52.270 --> 00:01:54.230
  • he would've been dead Thursday morning.
  • 00:01:54.230 --> 00:01:56.100
  • - I was talking to Mike and he didn't sound good.
  • 00:01:56.100 --> 00:01:59.050
  • He had told me earlier that he wasn't feeling well,
  • 00:01:59.050 --> 00:02:02.120
  • and I asked him was it okay for me
  • 00:02:02.120 --> 00:02:04.280
  • to send the kids over to take him to the hospital
  • 00:02:04.280 --> 00:02:07.170
  • to have him checked.
  • 00:02:07.170 --> 00:02:09.010
  • And he asked me, okay, he asked when are they coming?
  • 00:02:09.010 --> 00:02:12.140
  • And when he said that to me,
  • 00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:14.160
  • I knew there was a problem.
  • 00:02:14.160 --> 00:02:16.170
  • - So I go in, he's sitting on the bed just out of it, like.
  • 00:02:16.170 --> 00:02:20.230
  • He didn't look bad, but his whole, he couldn't breathe,
  • 00:02:20.230 --> 00:02:25.230
  • and he wasn't talking right.
  • 00:02:27.090 --> 00:02:29.180
  • And I thought he was having a stroke.
  • 00:02:29.180 --> 00:02:31.060
  • I'm asking him to do things
  • 00:02:31.060 --> 00:02:32.250
  • and seeing if he could put a sentence together,
  • 00:02:32.250 --> 00:02:35.060
  • if he could lift his arms up, stuff like that.
  • 00:02:35.060 --> 00:02:37.090
  • And I realized, he wasn't going to be
  • 00:02:37.090 --> 00:02:41.250
  • able to get up on his own.
  • 00:02:41.250 --> 00:02:43.160
  • So, I got him dressed, I called Kevin, and I was like,
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:46.050
  • "I need you to come help me get him out of here now"
  • 00:02:46.050 --> 00:02:48.270
  • "cause I can't lift him".
  • 00:02:48.270 --> 00:02:50.190
  • So, we lifted him up, out the bed,
  • 00:02:50.190 --> 00:02:54.070
  • and he walked with us.
  • 00:02:54.070 --> 00:02:55.270
  • A lot of his weight was on me cause
  • 00:02:55.270 --> 00:02:57.130
  • Kevin was holding like this.
  • 00:02:57.130 --> 00:02:58.290
  • - [Kevin] I was holding his arm, and then I
  • 00:02:58.290 --> 00:03:00.180
  • realized she actually had his arm
  • 00:03:00.180 --> 00:03:02.150
  • draped over her shoulder.
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:04.220
  • It was a short walk but it seemed like a long walk.
  • 00:03:04.220 --> 00:03:06.230
  • - Yeah, I know.
  • 00:03:06.230 --> 00:03:07.210
  • - He was moving very slow.
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:08.270
  • - And we took him to Urgent Care.
  • 00:03:08.270 --> 00:03:10.270
  • - [Keshla] I look over at the registration desk,
  • 00:03:10.270 --> 00:03:12.240
  • and there's Pastor Mike.
  • 00:03:12.240 --> 00:03:15.050
  • His breathing is labored and he's hunched over.
  • 00:03:15.050 --> 00:03:19.110
  • At this time, he's disoriented, lethargic.
  • 00:03:19.110 --> 00:03:24.110
  • The doctor looked at me and said,
  • 00:03:24.170 --> 00:03:26.080
  • "let's take him to get a chest x-ray".
  • 00:03:26.080 --> 00:03:29.270
  • But as he listened to his lung sound,
  • 00:03:29.270 --> 00:03:33.050
  • they were bad.
  • 00:03:33.050 --> 00:03:34.260
  • So we take his oxygen level,
  • 00:03:34.260 --> 00:03:36.190
  • and his oxygen level is at 22.
  • 00:03:36.190 --> 00:03:39.230
  • A normal oxygen level has to be 93 or above.
  • 00:03:39.230 --> 00:03:44.230
  • His was at 22, so we put him on 100% oxygen.
  • 00:03:45.230 --> 00:03:49.180
  • By then we had called the ambulance
  • 00:03:49.180 --> 00:03:52.180
  • to come pick him up because if we didn't,
  • 00:03:52.180 --> 00:03:55.200
  • he was knocking on death's door basically.
  • 00:03:59.150 --> 00:04:03.120
  • In my ten years of doing this,
  • 00:04:03.120 --> 00:04:05.040
  • I've seen death in my life,
  • 00:04:05.040 --> 00:04:07.240
  • and that was looking at Pastor Mike.
  • 00:04:07.240 --> 00:04:10.000
  • - The new oncoming ICU Attending pulled me aside,
  • 00:04:10.000 --> 00:04:14.110
  • and said, "you need to prepare your family for the worst."
  • 00:04:14.110 --> 00:04:19.110
  • We went over the numbers,
  • 00:04:19.140 --> 00:04:21.130
  • we went in and looked at Pastor Mike.
  • 00:04:21.130 --> 00:04:25.010
  • He was getting tired.
  • 00:04:25.010 --> 00:04:26.110
  • He still wasn't admitting it, but I saw.
  • 00:04:26.110 --> 00:04:28.080
  • He was getting tired.
  • 00:04:28.080 --> 00:04:29.260
  • And he said, "prepare them, don't give them false hope."
  • 00:04:29.260 --> 00:04:34.260
  • Like I said, I couldn't speak for five minutes
  • 00:04:34.290 --> 00:04:36.250
  • after he told me, and I definitely didn't
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:38.000
  • want to go back in the room where
  • 00:04:38.000 --> 00:04:39.260
  • Pastor Dee Dee and Brittney were sitting.
  • 00:04:39.260 --> 00:04:43.160
  • What do you say, you know?
  • 00:04:43.160 --> 00:04:45.190
  • Because on one hand, you walk,
  • 00:04:48.200 --> 00:04:50.120
  • we were standing on faith that he is healed.
  • 00:04:50.120 --> 00:04:53.040
  • I did not want to take a negative report.
  • 00:04:53.040 --> 00:04:55.090
  • I refused to take a negative report back to them.
  • 00:04:55.090 --> 00:04:58.030
  • That's when I had to recreate an outcome
  • 00:04:58.030 --> 00:05:01.130
  • from this x-ray that I have never
  • 00:05:01.130 --> 00:05:03.120
  • seen someone come back from.
  • 00:05:03.120 --> 00:05:06.060
  • That's when I had to really stand on faith.
  • 00:05:06.060 --> 00:05:09.200
  • - I quickly realized that Mr. Freeman
  • 00:05:09.200 --> 00:05:11.270
  • was very sick, and that the best approach
  • 00:05:11.270 --> 00:05:15.000
  • would be to transfer him right away.
  • 00:05:15.000 --> 00:05:18.150
  • And one of the great things about our program
  • 00:05:18.150 --> 00:05:22.160
  • is that we have helicopters that can
  • 00:05:22.160 --> 00:05:24.140
  • fly over to any hospital in the area
  • 00:05:24.140 --> 00:05:28.250
  • and quickly pick up a patient,
  • 00:05:28.250 --> 00:05:30.090
  • and within minutes, bring him over.
  • 00:05:30.090 --> 00:05:32.240
  • And that's exactly what we did.
  • 00:05:32.240 --> 00:05:34.230
  • - And when I got there, they had him in this
  • 00:05:34.230 --> 00:05:39.230
  • contraption, if you will, I have no idea.
  • 00:05:40.130 --> 00:05:43.020
  • It was like a sandwich.
  • 00:05:43.020 --> 00:05:44.260
  • They had him so closed up
  • 00:05:44.260 --> 00:05:47.080
  • the only thing I could see or identify
  • 00:05:47.080 --> 00:05:50.030
  • was, was his shoulders.
  • 00:05:50.030 --> 00:05:55.030
  • It was like you couldn't even see his face.
  • 00:05:56.050 --> 00:05:59.210
  • And they had him upside down
  • 00:05:59.210 --> 00:06:01.200
  • because they was saying that,
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:03.120
  • you know if they could get his lungs
  • 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:05.010
  • off of his chest and you know,
  • 00:06:05.010 --> 00:06:07.100
  • shake him and move him around.
  • 00:06:07.100 --> 00:06:09.140
  • That wasn't working.
  • 00:06:09.140 --> 00:06:10.260
  • Things begin to get worse.
  • 00:06:10.260 --> 00:06:13.050
  • His numbers would drop and his STATs would drop,
  • 00:06:13.050 --> 00:06:16.040
  • and his pressure, everything was going up.
  • 00:06:16.040 --> 00:06:19.060
  • Everything was just not working.
  • 00:06:19.060 --> 00:06:21.160
  • - Usually at that point in time,
  • 00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:23.130
  • most facilities would tell you, "it's over".
  • 00:06:23.130 --> 00:06:26.130
  • "It's time to close shop."
  • 00:06:26.130 --> 00:06:28.070
  • "You're going to have to let him peacefully go to heaven."
  • 00:06:28.070 --> 00:06:31.030
  • - So, immediately they took him out of there,
  • 00:06:31.030 --> 00:06:33.210
  • and they said okay, we're going to have to
  • 00:06:33.210 --> 00:06:36.070
  • hook him up to this ECMO machine.
  • 00:06:36.070 --> 00:06:39.060
  • They said, this is like a last-ditch effort.
  • 00:06:39.060 --> 00:06:43.120
  • - An ECMO is short for
  • 00:06:43.120 --> 00:06:45.260
  • Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation.
  • 00:06:45.260 --> 00:06:49.140
  • And in a nutshell, what it is, it is an artificial way
  • 00:06:49.140 --> 00:06:53.270
  • of oxygenating blood outside of the body.
  • 00:06:53.270 --> 00:06:56.200
  • - [Nurse] And basically it's a machine that
  • 00:06:56.200 --> 00:06:59.270
  • allows the heart and the lung function
  • 00:06:59.270 --> 00:07:02.050
  • to be taken over by an actual machine.
  • 00:07:02.050 --> 00:07:04.210
  • - [Dee dee] Yeah!
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:16.240
  • Man.
  • 00:07:20.260 --> 00:07:22.030
  • The devil would love
  • 00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:27.020
  • to take advantage of a time like this.
  • 00:07:27.180 --> 00:07:31.190
  • When we all come together on one accord and
  • 00:07:32.070 --> 00:07:35.080
  • we can demand some things to happen in the Spirit room.
  • 00:07:35.080 --> 00:07:39.000
  • The devil would love to get us in a place of
  • 00:07:39.000 --> 00:07:41.280
  • sadness, or depression, or oppression,
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:45.150
  • or dealing and looking at our circumstances
  • 00:07:45.150 --> 00:07:48.180
  • but I'm here to tell you all tonight,
  • 00:07:48.180 --> 00:07:51.190
  • the devil can't have anything
  • 00:07:52.030 --> 00:07:54.230
  • to do with the children of the most high God!
  • 00:07:54.280 --> 00:07:58.120
  • For we reign in Christ Jesus!
  • 00:07:58.120 --> 00:08:01.130
  • So we're not gonna give him place in here tonight.
  • 00:08:02.090 --> 00:08:05.180
  • We gonna worship our God.
  • 00:08:05.180 --> 00:08:07.210
  • We're gonna serve our God!
  • 00:08:07.210 --> 00:08:09.210
  • We're gonna hear from our God!
  • 00:08:09.210 --> 00:08:11.250
  • We gonna reign in our God, amen!
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:15.070
  • Turn to the person standing next to you
  • 00:08:16.060 --> 00:08:17.260
  • and say I'm so glad you came on tonight.
  • 00:08:17.260 --> 00:08:20.230
  • - [Audience] I'm so glad you came on tonight.
  • 00:08:20.230 --> 00:08:23.210
  • - [Dee dee] Turn to the person on the other side
  • 00:08:23.210 --> 00:08:25.110
  • and say I am so glad you came on tonight.
  • 00:08:25.110 --> 00:08:29.030
  • - [Audience] I am so glad you came on tonight.
  • 00:08:29.030 --> 00:08:31.240
  • - Yeah, ain't no time to stay home!
  • 00:08:32.050 --> 00:08:34.210
  • Ain't no time to draw back!
  • 00:08:35.030 --> 00:08:37.230
  • But it's time to lean in!
  • 00:08:38.000 --> 00:08:40.040
  • It's time to press in!
  • 00:08:40.110 --> 00:08:42.230
  • Come on somebody!
  • 00:08:43.290 --> 00:08:45.240
  • Hey, if you ain't gonna praise Him,
  • 00:08:47.050 --> 00:08:49.280
  • I could've just stayed up there with Pastor Mike!
  • 00:08:49.280 --> 00:08:53.070
  • But I thought I would come here and be fueled
  • 00:08:53.070 --> 00:08:56.120
  • by the presence of the almighty God with you guys!
  • 00:08:56.120 --> 00:09:00.030
  • Come on, let's give God some praise in this place!
  • 00:09:00.290 --> 00:09:04.100
  • Hallelujah!
  • 00:09:05.000 --> 00:09:07.080
  • Our God praise!
  • 00:09:09.030 --> 00:09:12.190
  • Our God praise!
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:17.060
  • Look.
  • 00:09:20.030 --> 00:09:21.070
  • Hey, hey wait.
  • 00:09:21.180 --> 00:09:23.010
  • And listen to me.

  • I am so pumped up.
  • 00:09:29.080 --> 00:09:33.020
  • I don't care how y'all act tonight.
  • 00:09:33.040 --> 00:09:36.070
  • I told Pastor Dwayne I was at the house,
  • 00:09:36.210 --> 00:09:38.150

  • conversation with everybody.
  • 00:09:44.100 --> 00:09:46.010
  • Because everybody don't understand that.
  • 00:09:46.010 --> 00:09:48.150
  • Because some people think you supposed
  • 00:09:48.150 --> 00:09:50.140
  • to sit around and look sad and you know,
  • 00:09:50.140 --> 00:09:53.140
  • going through but, let me tell you something.
  • 00:09:53.140 --> 00:09:55.270
  • Those that walk by faith.
  • 00:09:55.270 --> 00:09:58.040
  • We know our outcome!
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:06.290
  • And we know we win in the end!
  • 00:10:08.050 --> 00:10:11.160
  • Hey look.

  • 00:10:25.140 --> 00:10:26.230
  • in a fight with somebody?
  • 00:10:26.230 --> 00:10:28.070
  • Well I don't know, maybe y'all never fought anybody but.
  • 00:10:28.070 --> 00:10:30.270
  • I remember I was getting ready to fight somebody one time
  • 00:10:31.140 --> 00:10:34.010
  • and they put a little chip or something on my shoulder.
  • 00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:37.130
  • And it was like okay I dare you
  • 00:10:38.050 --> 00:10:40.140
  • whoever would knock that chip off was the bad man.
  • 00:10:40.140 --> 00:10:45.020
  • And you know it was like "Uh oh it's on then."
  • 00:10:45.230 --> 00:10:48.270
  • So I'm here to tell you,
  • 00:10:49.080 --> 00:10:51.130
  • I dare you to knock the chip off
  • 00:10:52.030 --> 00:10:55.280
  • of somebody elses shoulders.
  • 00:10:55.280 --> 00:10:58.240
  • Off of the enemies camp.
  • 00:10:58.240 --> 00:11:01.080
  • And I dare you to come on one accord.
  • 00:11:01.210 --> 00:11:04.070
  • Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
  • 00:11:04.070 --> 00:11:07.150
  • Just let me tell you.
  • 00:11:07.150 --> 00:11:08.290
  • There are some things
  • 00:11:08.290 --> 00:11:10.240
  • that happen when people come on one accord.
  • 00:11:11.030 --> 00:11:15.160
  • No, listen to me.
  • 00:11:16.280 --> 00:11:18.180
  • There are some things that happen
  • 00:11:19.290 --> 00:11:23.010
  • when people come together on one accord.
  • 00:11:23.110 --> 00:11:27.140
  • Speaking the same thing.
  • 00:11:27.170 --> 00:11:29.250
  • Believing the same thing.
  • 00:11:29.250 --> 00:11:33.030
  • The Bible says in Acts 2:2,
  • 00:11:33.150 --> 00:11:37.230
  • that when the day of Pentecost had fully come.
  • 00:11:37.230 --> 00:11:41.160
  • Aha, and the people were on one accord,
  • 00:11:42.000 --> 00:11:46.260
  • there was a mighty rushing wind.
  • 00:11:47.070 --> 00:11:51.120
  • Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
  • 00:11:53.070 --> 00:11:55.040
  • And then I heard about two other guys
  • 00:11:55.040 --> 00:11:58.100
  • over there in Acts chapter 16.
  • 00:11:58.250 --> 00:12:02.100
  • They came on one accord.

  • and tribulations.
  • 00:12:12.220 --> 00:12:14.140
  • Even in the midst of being shackled at the ankles.

  • Even being in the midst of all of their bowels
  • 00:12:19.290 --> 00:12:23.180
  • and all of their stuff.
  • 00:12:23.180 --> 00:12:25.170
  • Not being able to go and do as they please.
  • 00:12:25.170 --> 00:12:29.100
  • The Bible says that Paul and Silas came together.
  • 00:12:29.100 --> 00:12:34.060
  • And they began to sing Psalms and hymns
  • 00:12:34.170 --> 00:12:37.230

  • 00:19:02.160 --> 00:19:03.240
  • I was saying "God can I say that in church?"
  • 00:19:03.240 --> 00:19:06.120
  • You know Pastor Mike ain't here.
  • 00:19:06.140 --> 00:19:07.260
  • Pastor Mike like the little dancy lady kinda acting.
  • 00:19:07.260 --> 00:19:11.010
  • Well he ain't here.
  • 00:19:11.010 --> 00:19:13.000
  • I'm pissed.
  • 00:19:15.050 --> 00:19:16.210
  • I'm pissed at the devil for stepping to me.
  • 00:19:17.020 --> 00:19:19.270
  • For sucker punching me.
  • 00:19:19.270 --> 00:19:22.020
  • For catching me off guard.
  • 00:19:22.020 --> 00:19:24.120
  • But guess what?
  • 00:19:26.110 --> 00:19:27.220
  • I am prepared to handle the fight.
  • 00:19:28.150 --> 00:19:31.190
  • I am winning the fight.
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:35.000
  • I am in for the long haul.
  • 00:19:35.130 --> 00:19:38.080
  • I don't give a care how long it takes.
  • 00:19:38.080 --> 00:19:42.110
  • I win!
  • 00:19:42.110 --> 00:19:44.090
  • And listen, this ain't even just about me.
  • 00:19:46.200 --> 00:19:50.080
  • This should be about you!
  • 00:19:50.280 --> 00:19:53.020
  • I want you to be so pissed
  • 00:19:53.130 --> 00:19:55.170
  • when the devil step to you
  • 00:19:55.170 --> 00:19:57.140
  • and try to attack something that belongs to you!
  • 00:19:57.140 --> 00:20:01.050
  • You are the seed of Abraham!
  • 00:20:02.030 --> 00:20:04.250
  • And God has promised us the good life.
  • 00:20:07.200 --> 00:20:10.110
  • Now ain't the time to be backing down!
  • 00:20:11.010 --> 00:20:13.230
  • Devil can't even have a ink pen that belongs to me.
  • 00:20:15.060 --> 00:20:18.220
  • And I'm not here really again
  • 00:20:21.210 --> 00:20:23.140
  • to try to get you all pumped up and hyped
  • 00:20:23.140 --> 00:20:25.090
  • cause that ain't gonna last you.
  • 00:20:25.090 --> 00:20:27.040
  • I thank God for a Pastor that has taught us faith.
  • 00:20:29.070 --> 00:20:34.030
  • Every day I look at him,
  • 00:20:35.080 --> 00:20:37.060
  • and I say baby thank you for teaching me faith!
  • 00:20:37.060 --> 00:20:41.020
  • Thank you for teaching me how to trust God!
  • 00:20:41.230 --> 00:20:44.160
  • Thank you for teaching me how to believe
  • 00:20:44.160 --> 00:20:46.240
  • and stand in the midst of adversity!
  • 00:20:46.240 --> 00:20:49.160
  • I thank God for this last message.
  • 00:20:52.070 --> 00:20:55.060
  • That I see better here, than I do here.
  • 00:20:55.140 --> 00:20:59.000
  • Oh!
  • 00:20:59.260 --> 00:21:01.050
  • Just when you thought the devil
  • 00:21:04.000 --> 00:21:07.000
  • has sucker punched you,
  • 00:21:07.000 --> 00:21:08.210
  • God was preparing you for the run all the time.
  • 00:21:08.210 --> 00:21:13.030
  • You hear me?!
  • 00:21:14.010 --> 00:21:15.080
  • You hear me?!
  • 00:21:15.080 --> 00:21:16.120
  • I don't give a care how it looks.
  • 00:21:16.120 --> 00:21:19.060
  • I don't care.
  • 00:21:21.020 --> 00:21:22.110
  • I don't give a care.
  • 00:21:22.290 --> 00:21:24.250
  • So what your kids tripping?!
  • 00:21:25.200 --> 00:21:27.190
  • So what your husband acting like a cold fool?!
  • 00:21:29.150 --> 00:21:33.010
  • So what your wife don't cook?
  • 00:21:33.240 --> 00:21:36.080
  • So what you don't make the money
  • 00:21:39.120 --> 00:21:41.210
  • you think you deserve to make?!
  • 00:21:41.210 --> 00:21:44.040
  • What we see is temporal.
  • 00:21:45.150 --> 00:21:49.030
  • We see through a different set of eyes.
  • 00:21:51.080 --> 00:21:54.210
  • We see the abundant life.
  • 00:21:54.280 --> 00:21:57.250
  • We see the prosperous life.
  • 00:21:57.250 --> 00:22:00.160
  • We see hill in your knees eyes!
  • 00:22:00.160 --> 00:22:03.150
  • to be taken over by an actual machine.
  • 00:22:04.140 --> 00:22:04.230
  • - [Newscaster] Pastor Freeman stayed on
  • 00:22:05.120 --> 00:22:06.030
  • the ECMO machine for three weeks,
  • 00:22:06.030 --> 00:22:09.010
  • and just when doctors were beginning to give up,
  • 00:22:09.010 --> 00:22:12.030
  • his lungs started to heal.
  • 00:22:12.030 --> 00:22:14.070
  • He was going to live.
  • 00:22:14.070 --> 00:22:15.270
  • - One thing that I told the doctors through this process,
  • 00:22:15.270 --> 00:22:18.150
  • they were telling me, "okay, it's going to be this"
  • 00:22:18.150 --> 00:22:21.020
  • "you know, if this works," and
  • 00:22:21.020 --> 00:22:23.170
  • "I don't know how this is going to be,"
  • 00:22:23.170 --> 00:22:25.140
  • "If we going to try this,"
  • 00:22:25.140 --> 00:22:26.200
  • "it's going to be a lot of little things,".
  • 00:22:26.200 --> 00:22:27.290
  • And I would look at them and I would say:
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:29.250
  • You know what?
  • 00:22:29.250 --> 00:22:31.030
  • I really don't care how we get in the end zone.
  • 00:22:31.030 --> 00:22:34.000
  • I don't care if it's a whole lot of
  • 00:22:34.000 --> 00:22:35.150
  • little plays or one big play.
  • 00:22:35.150 --> 00:22:37.200
  • Give me a hail mary or give me a lot of little plays.
  • 00:22:37.200 --> 00:22:40.130
  • Just get me in the end zone.
  • 00:22:40.130 --> 00:22:42.020
  • I knew God had promised me that
  • 00:22:42.020 --> 00:22:44.170
  • Mike was going to get out of that hospital,
  • 00:22:44.170 --> 00:22:46.140
  • that he was going to be healed, he was going to be whole.
  • 00:22:46.140 --> 00:22:48.220
  • I never doubted that one bit.
  • 00:22:48.220 --> 00:22:52.010
  • - The level of what I would call paralysis he had
  • 00:22:52.010 --> 00:22:56.150
  • was extremely unusual.
  • 00:22:56.150 --> 00:22:58.230
  • I had never seen it.
  • 00:22:58.230 --> 00:23:01.010
  • One of our physiatrists here who has own practice,
  • 00:23:01.010 --> 00:23:05.260
  • had not seen it.
  • 00:23:05.260 --> 00:23:07.250
  • And so it really worried us.
  • 00:23:07.250 --> 00:23:09.240
  • At one point in time, I ask him if he can feel
  • 00:23:09.240 --> 00:23:12.180
  • because I was very surprised.
  • 00:23:12.180 --> 00:23:14.160
  • When I first met him, I went to shake his hand
  • 00:23:14.160 --> 00:23:17.040
  • only to realize he couldn't even move his finger.
  • 00:23:17.040 --> 00:23:20.060
  • He was completely, the only thing he could move
  • 00:23:20.060 --> 00:23:22.000
  • when he got here was his head.
  • 00:23:22.000 --> 00:23:24.160
  • - Because of the amount of muscle damage,
  • 00:23:24.160 --> 00:23:28.050
  • I should say muscle and nerve damage
  • 00:23:28.050 --> 00:23:31.060
  • that took place due to his laying still
  • 00:23:31.060 --> 00:23:34.110
  • for that long as well as the amount of medicines
  • 00:23:34.110 --> 00:23:36.060
  • he was on, now they were giving him
  • 00:23:36.060 --> 00:23:38.140
  • maybe six months to a year to really
  • 00:23:38.140 --> 00:23:40.250
  • begin to get some kind of functionality.
  • 00:23:40.250 --> 00:23:43.190
  • Now, we know Pastor Mike, and we know his mind,
  • 00:23:43.190 --> 00:23:46.280
  • and we know his mind said,
  • 00:23:46.280 --> 00:23:48.080
  • Pastor Mike was not at all stating for,
  • 00:23:48.080 --> 00:23:51.220
  • I'm going to lay in this bed for this long.
  • 00:23:51.220 --> 00:23:53.140
  • - In his mind, he was further along in his mind
  • 00:23:53.140 --> 00:23:57.240
  • than he was in his body.
  • 00:23:57.240 --> 00:24:01.030
  • - [Newscaster] Dr. Molina says one
  • 00:24:01.030 --> 00:24:02.120
  • remarkable thing about this case,
  • 00:24:02.120 --> 00:24:04.090
  • even though the pastor was close to death,
  • 00:24:04.090 --> 00:24:07.100
  • his family never doubted his survival.
  • 00:24:07.100 --> 00:24:10.130
  • - I personally truly believe that they must
  • 00:24:10.130 --> 00:24:12.270
  • have an impact in the final outcome.
  • 00:24:12.270 --> 00:24:14.280
  • - The started putting him in physical therapy,
  • 00:24:14.280 --> 00:24:17.150
  • and he want to therapy seven days a week.
  • 00:24:17.150 --> 00:24:20.290
  • Again, that was the first time for them.
  • 00:24:20.290 --> 00:24:23.080
  • They don't even know how he end up
  • 00:24:23.080 --> 00:24:25.170
  • getting seven days a week of therapy.
  • 00:24:25.170 --> 00:24:27.290
  • They said nobody ever gets that.
  • 00:24:27.290 --> 00:24:30.100
  • Seven days a week of therapy.
  • 00:24:30.100 --> 00:24:31.290
  • We celebrated everything.
  • 00:24:31.290 --> 00:24:34.290
  • I mean, when he could just lift his arm up a little bit,
  • 00:24:34.290 --> 00:24:38.040
  • we were like "Yay!"
  • 00:24:38.040 --> 00:24:40.150
  • When he could move his head or sit up,
  • 00:24:40.150 --> 00:24:43.250
  • we like "Yay!"
  • 00:24:43.250 --> 00:24:46.000
  • It took him a month in rehab,
  • 00:24:46.000 --> 00:24:47.200
  • but he went from his head sitting up within a couple days
  • 00:24:47.200 --> 00:24:51.250
  • to then within a week, he had arm movements.
  • 00:24:51.250 --> 00:24:54.110
  • The next week, he was actually able to kind of
  • 00:24:54.110 --> 00:24:55.210
  • get himself where he was able to
  • 00:24:55.210 --> 00:24:57.200
  • sit up and hold himself up to standing,
  • 00:24:57.200 --> 00:25:00.240
  • all within a month time, he's walking.
  • 00:25:00.240 --> 00:25:03.170

  • that has carried my faith to the next level,

  • 00:27:20.280 --> 00:27:22.130
  • it's a greater sin to not get back up and fight again.
  • 00:27:22.130 --> 00:27:26.140
  • That's what God wants you to do.
  • 00:27:27.210 --> 00:27:29.030
  • When you fall, he says rise up and go forward.
  • 00:27:29.030 --> 00:27:32.190

  • of what you see.

  • - You got to visualize.
  • 00:27:53.120 --> 00:27:55.030
  • You gotta verbalize.
  • 00:27:55.030 --> 00:27:56.270
  • You gotta internalize until it materializes.
  • 00:27:56.270 --> 00:28:00.200
  • - If you see health, your body will move in that direction.
  • 00:28:03.250 --> 00:28:08.210
  • - Whew.
  • 00:28:08.210 --> 00:28:09.160
