  • - OKAY.
  • 00:05:36.000 --> 00:05:37.090
  • START FROM THE BEGINNING.
  • 00:05:37.110 --> 00:05:38.230
  • NEW YORK CITY, YOU WERE STRUNG OUT.
  • 00:05:38.250 --> 00:05:40.270
  • WHERE DOES YOUR STORY BEGIN AND YOUR JOURNEY?
  • 00:05:40.290 --> 00:05:44.160
  • - WELL, IN NEW YORK CITY AT THE AGE OF ABOUT 15, I
  • 00:05:44.180 --> 00:05:50.130
  • STARTED USING DRUGS, AND THEN I GOT INVOLVED IN
  • 00:05:50.150 --> 00:05:53.150
  • HEROIN ADDICTION, AND I TOTALLY DROPPED OUT OF
  • 00:05:53.170 --> 00:05:57.100
  • SCHOOL, AND THE PART ABOUT IT IS IS THAT I
  • 00:05:57.120 --> 00:06:00.020
  • CAME FROM A CHRISTIAN HOME.
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:02.150
  • MY FAMILY WERE CHRISTIANS, AND IN THE BEGINNING
  • 00:06:02.170 --> 00:06:06.230
  • THEY WOULD TAKE ME TO CHURCH, BUT AFTER A WHILE
  • 00:06:06.250 --> 00:06:09.000
  • I REBELLED AGAINST CHURCH.
  • 00:06:09.020 --> 00:06:11.080
  • I REBELLED AGAINST CHRISTIANITY.
  • 00:06:11.100 --> 00:06:13.100
  • I REBELLED AGAINST GOD, AND I GOT HEAVY INTO THE
  • 00:06:13.120 --> 00:06:16.280
  • DRUGS, AND USUALLY WHEN YOU GET INTO DRUGS, THEN
  • 00:06:17.000 --> 00:06:20.250
  • YOU HAVE TO STEAL AND ROB TO SUPPORT YOUR HABITS,
  • 00:06:20.270 --> 00:06:25.130
  • AND I WAS TEN TIMES IN AND OUT OF ALL THE
  • 00:06:25.150 --> 00:06:28.140
  • PRISONS IN NEW YORK CITY.
  • 00:06:28.160 --> 00:06:30.250
  • AND IN THOSE DAYS THEY WOULD SAY, THERE WAS A
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:34.050
  • SLOGAN "ONCE A JUNKIE, ALWAYS A JUNKIE".
  • 00:06:34.070 --> 00:06:37.040
  • AND I ACCEPTED THAT.
  • 00:06:37.060 --> 00:06:38.220
  • I'M A JUNKIE.
  • 00:06:38.240 --> 00:06:40.090
  • I'M A DRUG ADDICT, AND NOBODY IS GOING TO BE
  • 00:06:40.110 --> 00:06:43.020
  • ABLE TO CHANGE MY LIFE.
  • 00:06:43.040 --> 00:06:45.100
  • UNTIL -- YOU KNOW, GOD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS.
  • 00:06:45.120 --> 00:06:48.160
  • I THINK IT HAD A LOT TO DO WITH THE PRAYERS
  • 00:06:48.180 --> 00:06:51.000
  • OF MY MOM.
  • 00:06:51.020 --> 00:06:52.150
  • THAT'S WHY THOSE THAT ARE LISTENING, IF YOU'RE
  • 00:06:52.170 --> 00:06:54.110
  • PRAYING FOR YOUR CHILDREN, DON'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:06:54.130 --> 00:06:58.140
  • GOD IS HEARING THOSE PRAYERS, AND ONE DAY WHEN
  • 00:06:58.160 --> 00:07:02.120
  • I WAS JUST STANDING BY A STOOP IN ONE OF THE
  • 00:07:02.140 --> 00:07:05.100
  • TENEMENT BUILDINGS IN NEW YORK A GUY PASSED BY.
  • 00:07:05.120 --> 00:07:09.250
  • I HAD NEVER SEEN ANYBODY THAT WAS DELIVERED FROM
  • 00:07:09.270 --> 00:07:12.070
  • DRUGS IN THOSE DAYS.
  • 00:07:12.090 --> 00:07:14.040
  • SO THIS ONE GUY PASSED BY.
  • 00:07:14.060 --> 00:07:16.020
  • I CALLED HIM.
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:18.140
  • I WAS WAITING FOR SOME DRUGS TO COME FROM
  • 00:07:18.160 --> 00:07:20.010
  • HARLEM, AND THEN I SAID TO HIM LISTEN, I WANT YOU
  • 00:07:20.030 --> 00:07:22.240
  • TO HELP ME.
  • 00:07:22.260 --> 00:07:24.230
  • I'M WAITING FOR SOME DRUGS THAT ARE GOING TO
  • 00:07:24.250 --> 00:07:26.030
  • COME IN, SOME HEROIN, AND IF YOU HELP ME, I'LL GIVE
  • 00:07:26.050 --> 00:07:28.020
  • YOU A FIX AND DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.
  • 00:07:28.040 --> 00:07:29.050
  • HE SAYS, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:07:29.070 --> 00:07:30.150
  • I DON'T SHOOT DRUGS ANYMORE.
  • 00:07:30.170 --> 00:07:31.150
  • JESUS CHANGED MY LIFE.
  • 00:07:31.170 --> 00:07:34.150
  • WHEN HE TOLD ME THAT, I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:07:34.170 --> 00:07:38.010
  • I SAID, THIS GUY IS PUTTING ME ON.
  • 00:07:38.030 --> 00:07:39.110
  • SOMETHING IS WRONG OVER HERE.
  • 00:07:39.130 --> 00:07:42.060
  • AND I GOT SO INVOLVED WITH HIM THAT HE SAID IF
  • 00:07:42.080 --> 00:07:45.100
  • YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME, I WANT YOU TO COME WITH ME
  • 00:07:45.120 --> 00:07:47.020
  • AND I WANT YOU TO MEET SOME PEOPLE.
  • 00:07:47.040 --> 00:07:48.230
  • AND I GOT SO INVOLVED IN IT, WHEN I LOOK BACK IT
  • 00:07:48.250 --> 00:07:51.160
  • WAS GOD AT WORK, THAT I WENT WITH HIM, AND HE
  • 00:07:51.180 --> 00:07:54.190
  • TOOK ME OVER TO TEEN CHALLENGE.
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:07:57.040
  • - WOW.
  • 00:07:57.060 --> 00:07:58.110
  • - THAT'S WHEN DAVE WILKERSON JUST HAD
  • 00:07:58.130 --> 00:08:00.040
  • STARTED THE MINISTRY THERE IN NEW YORK CITY.
  • 00:08:00.060 --> 00:08:02.220
  • AND BY THE WAY, I KNEW EVEN DAVE BEFORE THAT
  • 00:08:02.240 --> 00:08:05.020
  • BECAUSE HE USED TO COME AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD
  • 00:08:05.040 --> 00:08:07.150
  • AND TRY TO TELL US ABOUT JESUS, AND I WOULD ALWAYS
  • 00:08:07.170 --> 00:08:10.120
  • TELL HIM, YOU BETTER BE CAREFUL.
  • 00:08:10.140 --> 00:08:11.280
  • YOU'RE IN THE WRONG NEIGHBORHOOD.
  • 00:08:12.000 --> 00:08:13.100
  • YOU BETTER GO BACK TO PENNSYLVANIA.
  • 00:08:13.120 --> 00:08:15.180
  • AND I DIDN'T KNOW THAT TEEN CHALLENGE OR THAT
  • 00:08:15.200 --> 00:08:19.030
  • BUILDING WAS CONNECTED WITH DAVID WILKERSON.
  • 00:08:19.050 --> 00:08:21.200
  • AND THAT'S WHERE I MET NICKY CRUZ.
  • 00:08:21.220 --> 00:08:24.230
  • NICKY BEGAN TO WITNESS TO ME HOW HIS LIFE WAS
  • 00:08:24.250 --> 00:08:28.160
  • CHANGED, AND FROM ONE STEP TO ANOTHER STEP ALL
  • 00:08:28.180 --> 00:08:32.020
  • THE SUDDEN THERE I EXPERIENCED THE GREATEST
  • 00:08:32.040 --> 00:08:34.250
  • MOVE OF GOD WITHIN MY LIFE.
  • 00:08:34.270 --> 00:08:37.040
  • AND IT TOOK THE MIRACLE WORKING POWER OF GOD TO
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:40.080
  • BE ABLE TO DELIVER ME.
  • 00:08:40.100 --> 00:08:41.250
  • - WHAT'S INTERESTING THOUGH IS THAT YOU HAD TO
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:43.150
  • SEE IT TO BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:08:43.170 --> 00:08:44.170
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:08:44.190 --> 00:08:46.030
  • - SO IF IT WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN FOR THE TESTIMONY, A
  • 00:08:46.050 --> 00:08:47.200
  • PERSON THAT YOU KNEW WAS A DRUG ADDICT AND THEIR
  • 00:08:47.220 --> 00:08:51.070
  • LIFE CHANGED AND THEIR WALKING IT OUT, YOU WOULD
  • 00:08:51.090 --> 00:08:53.240
  • HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:08:53.260 --> 00:08:55.060
  • - NO, THAT'S WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT FOR US THAT THE
  • 00:08:55.080 --> 00:08:57.290
  • EXPERIENCE THAT WE EXPERIENCE WITH JESUS WE
  • 00:08:58.010 --> 00:09:00.130
  • SHOULDN'T KEEP IT TO OURSELVES.
  • 00:09:00.150 --> 00:09:02.070
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT BACKGROUND YOU COME FROM,
  • 00:09:02.090 --> 00:09:05.170
  • YOUR TESTIMONY, THEIR TESTIMONY, A PERSON'S
  • 00:09:05.190 --> 00:09:08.070
  • TESTIMONY THAT'S BEEN SAVED AND DELIVERED IS
  • 00:09:08.090 --> 00:09:10.190
  • VERY IMPORTANT, IS ABLE TO TOUCH THE LIVES OF
  • 00:09:10.210 --> 00:09:13.010
  • OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:09:13.030 --> 00:09:15.170
  • AND IF IT WASN'T FOR THIS GUY TELLING ME IN THE
  • 00:09:15.190 --> 00:09:17.200
  • STREETS, IF HE WOULD HAVE BEEN EMBARRASSED ABOUT IT
  • 00:09:17.220 --> 00:09:19.080
  • OR IF HE WOULD HAVE FELT HE DIDN'T HAVE TO TELL
  • 00:09:19.100 --> 00:09:22.080
  • ME, I WOULDN'T BE HERE RIGHT NOW, BUT THROUGH
  • 00:09:22.100 --> 00:09:24.170
  • HIS TESTIMONY AND JUST TELLING ME THAT HIS LIFE
  • 00:09:24.190 --> 00:09:27.090
  • WAS CHANGED, THAT'S WHAT REALLY TOUCHED ME.
  • 00:09:27.110 --> 00:09:29.190
  • IF IT WASN'T FOR HIM, I WOULDN'T BE HERE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:09:29.210 --> 00:09:31.270
  • - HOW DID YOU GET CALLED INTO THE MINISTRY?
  • 00:09:31.290 --> 00:09:34.100
  • WHAT WAS THAT PROCESS LIKE?
  • 00:09:34.120 --> 00:09:36.210
  • IF THERE'S NEW CHRISTIANS WATCHING, THERE'S A BIG
  • 00:09:36.230 --> 00:09:40.030
  • LEAP MAYBE BETWEEN, YOU KNOW, A CONVERSION
  • 00:09:40.050 --> 00:09:43.270
  • EXPERIENCE AND THEN FEELING LIKE YOU
  • 00:09:43.290 --> 00:09:45.160
  • COULD REALLY HELP SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:09:45.180 --> 00:09:47.130
  • WHAT WAS THAT PROCESS?
  • 00:09:47.150 --> 00:09:49.170
  • - I THINK THE IMPORTANT THING FOR ANYBODY TO
  • 00:09:49.190 --> 00:09:51.270
  • RECOGNIZE, ANY CHRISTIAN TO REALIZE AND TO
  • 00:09:51.290 --> 00:09:54.120
  • UNDERSTAND THAT ONCE YOU GET SAVED, GOD HAS A
  • 00:09:54.140 --> 00:09:58.250
  • PURPOSE FOR YOU.
  • 00:09:58.270 --> 00:10:00.260
  • AND THEN THERE'S A PLAN OF GOD.
  • 00:10:00.280 --> 00:10:02.240
  • THERE'S THE WILL OF GOD THAT BEGINS TO TAKE PLACE
  • 00:10:02.260 --> 00:10:04.220
  • ONE STEP AT A TIME.
  • 00:10:04.240 --> 00:10:06.200
  • I WAS AT THE CENTER, AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THE
  • 00:10:06.220 --> 00:10:10.060
  • NEXT STEP WAS GOING TO BE.
  • 00:10:10.080 --> 00:10:11.150
  • ALL I KNEW IS THAT I GOT SAVED AND I STARTED GOING
  • 00:10:11.170 --> 00:10:13.070
  • OUT INTO THE STREETS.
  • 00:10:13.090 --> 00:10:14.250
  • WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT IS THAT BEING SAVED IN A
  • 00:10:14.270 --> 00:10:17.220
  • PIONEER WORK YOU DON'T WAIT A LONG TIME BEFORE
  • 00:10:17.240 --> 00:10:20.140
  • YOU GO OUT AND WITNESS.
  • 00:10:20.160 --> 00:10:22.030
  • THAT'S THE GOOD PART ABOUT IT.
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:24.070
  • I MEAN, DAVE HAD A VISION OF REACHING NEW YORK
  • 00:10:24.090 --> 00:10:27.000
  • CITY, AND SO NICKY AND I WOULD GO OUT AND WE WOULD
  • 00:10:27.020 --> 00:10:30.270
  • GO AND BEGIN TO WITNESS TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:10:30.290 --> 00:10:33.280
  • I DIDN'T KNOW NOTHING ABOUT PREACHING.
  • 00:10:34.000 --> 00:10:36.090
  • I DIDN'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE BIBLE, BUT I WOULD GO
  • 00:10:36.110 --> 00:10:40.220
  • AND JUST GIVE MY TESTIMONY.
  • 00:10:40.240 --> 00:10:42.140
  • I WOULD GET OUT IN THE STREETS.
  • 00:10:42.160 --> 00:10:45.040
  • WE HAD A MICROPHONE.
  • 00:10:45.060 --> 00:10:46.250
  • WE HAD A VAN, AND THEN I WOULD GET UP THERE AND I
  • 00:10:46.270 --> 00:10:50.120
  • BEGAN TO CALL OUT, ESPECIALLY IN MY

  • EVERYBODY STARTED LOOKING.
  • 00:10:56.210 --> 00:10:57.270
  • SOMETHING HAPPENED TO SONNY, MAN.
  • 00:10:57.290 --> 00:10:59.080
  • [ LAUGHTER ] HE MUST HAVE LOST HIS MIND, AND I
  • 00:10:59.100 --> 00:11:02.180
  • BEGAN TO GO AHEAD AND TELL THEM, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:11:02.200 --> 00:11:05.130
  • I WENT TO THIS PLACE, AND I GOT THERE, AND JESUS
  • 00:11:05.150 --> 00:11:07.180
  • GOT HOLD OF MY LIFE AND HE SET ME FREE.
  • 00:11:07.200 --> 00:11:11.030
  • WHEN I DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO SAY,
  • 00:11:11.050 --> 00:11:13.220
  • WHEN I RAN OUT OF WHAT TO SAY, THEN I WOULD GIVE IT
  • 00:11:13.240 --> 00:11:16.180
  • TO NICKY, AND THEN NICKY WOULD TAKE IT AND BEGIN
  • 00:11:16.200 --> 00:11:19.080
  • TO MAKE AN ALTAR CALL, IF YOU WANT JESUS, YOU COME
  • 00:11:19.100 --> 00:11:20.210

  • DID FOR SONNY.

  • PEOPLE BEGAN TO COME, AND THEN WE HAD THE VAN
  • 00:11:24.240 --> 00:11:30.130
  • WAITING, AND THESE WERE DRUG ADDICTS.
  • 00:11:30.150 --> 00:11:31.250
  • WE'D PUT THEM IN THE VAN AND TAKE THEM OUT TO THE
  • 00:11:31.270 --> 00:11:35.030

  • 00:15:38.030 --> 00:15:40.090
  • NOW YOU'VE GOT JULIE.
  • 00:15:40.110 --> 00:15:43.290
  • YOU'RE STARTING WHAT IS THE BEGINNING DAYS OF
  • 00:15:44.010 --> 00:15:46.020
  • TEEN CHALLENGE WHICH IS NOW A GLOBAL MINISTRY
  • 00:15:46.040 --> 00:15:48.250
  • OPERATION WITH HOUSING 10.000 PEOPLE EVERY DAY.
  • 00:15:48.270 --> 00:15:53.030
  • YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE TRENCHES DOING THIS BUT
  • 00:15:53.050 --> 00:15:55.240
  • WHAT DID IT FEEL LIKE?
  • 00:15:55.260 --> 00:15:58.210
  • AND I THINK A LOT OF VIEWERS A LOT OF TIMES
  • 00:15:58.230 --> 00:16:03.040
  • THINK, YOU KNOW, YOU GUYS ARE JUST SPECIAL.
  • 00:16:03.060 --> 00:16:06.210
  • YOU LOOK GOOD.
  • 00:16:06.230 --> 00:16:07.260
  • YOU SMELL GOOD.
  • 00:16:07.280 --> 00:16:09.150
  • THINGS ARE DIFFERENT FOR YOU, OKAY?
  • 00:16:09.170 --> 00:16:10.250
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE OUT HERE.
  • 00:16:10.270 --> 00:16:12.030
  • AND THE IDEA IS, WAIT A SECOND.
  • 00:16:12.050 --> 00:16:13.120
  • YOU FELT THAT WAY.
  • 00:16:13.140 --> 00:16:14.250
  • PAUL AND JAN FELT THAT WAY, AND SOMETIMES, YOU
  • 00:16:14.270 --> 00:16:17.140
  • KNOW, IT'S HARD FOR US TO MAKE PEOPLE IN THE
  • 00:16:17.160 --> 00:16:19.190
  • VIEWING AUDIENCE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAD
  • 00:16:19.210 --> 00:16:23.110
  • AS MANY DOUBTS, STRUGGLES, CONCERNS, HARDSHIPS.
  • 00:16:23.130 --> 00:16:26.050
  • WHAT WAS THAT LIKE?
  • 00:16:26.070 --> 00:16:28.240
  • - WELL, THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:16:28.260 --> 00:16:30.270
  • FROM THE ROLL IN WE JUST SAW, YOU WERE HAVING DRUG
  • 00:16:30.290 --> 00:16:32.040
  • ADDICTS COME INTO YOUR HOUSE, SO SONNY WAS
  • 00:16:32.060 --> 00:16:34.180
  • BRINGING HOME THESE MEN THAT HAD A DRUG PROBLEM
  • 00:16:34.200 --> 00:16:37.170
  • INTO YOUR HOME.
  • 00:16:37.190 --> 00:16:39.030
  • HOW DID THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?
  • 00:16:39.050 --> 00:16:41.100
  • - JULIE ARGUINZONI: MY BROTHER HAD BEEN A DRUG
  • 00:16:41.120 --> 00:16:43.210
  • ADDICT, AND EVEN WHEN I MET HIM I DIDN'T WANT
  • 00:16:43.230 --> 00:16:45.220
  • ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIM.
  • 00:16:45.240 --> 00:16:47.200
  • ONE OF THE REASONS WAS BECAUSE HE HAD BEEN A
  • 00:16:47.220 --> 00:16:49.220
  • DRUG ADDICT, AND SO I KNEW ALL ABOUT DRUGS, AND
  • 00:16:49.240 --> 00:16:54.100
  • MY SISTER WAS MARRIED ALSO TO A HEROIN ADDICT,
  • 00:16:54.120 --> 00:16:57.140
  • AND SO I REALLY DIDN'T WANT TO ASSOCIATE THAT MUCH,
  • 00:16:57.160 --> 00:17:00.140
  • BUT WHEN GOD SPOKE TO HIM TO START A CHURCH FOR
  • 00:17:00.160 --> 00:17:02.080
  • DRUG ADDICTS AND THEIR FAMILIES, I SAID ARE YOU
  • 00:17:02.100 --> 00:17:04.190
  • SURE THAT'S WHAT GOD SAID?
  • 00:17:04.210 --> 00:17:06.290
  • AND HE SAID, THAT'S WHAT GOD WANTS.
  • 00:17:07.010 --> 00:17:08.270
  • AND SO THEN I SAID, WELL, I'M CALLED AND I'VE GOT
  • 00:17:08.290 --> 00:17:12.160
  • TO FOLLOW MY HUSBAND.
  • 00:17:12.180 --> 00:17:13.270
  • SO THAT'S WHEN HE STARTED BRINGING PEOPLE HOME, AND
  • 00:17:13.290 --> 00:17:17.210
  • THAT'S THE WAY IT BEGAN, IN OUR HOUSE.
  • 00:17:17.230 --> 00:17:19.030
  • - THAT'S A MESSY THING THOUGH.
  • 00:17:19.050 --> 00:17:20.150
  • - IT IS A MESSY THING.
  • 00:17:20.170 --> 00:17:22.030
  • - FOR MOST PEOPLE, THAT'S ALMOST
  • 00:17:22.050 --> 00:17:23.130
  • INCONCEIVABLE. OKAY.
  • 00:17:23.150 --> 00:17:26.090
  • HOW DID YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:17:26.110 --> 00:17:29.170
  • - WELL, LET ME GIVE YOU -- LET ME GIVE YOU AN
  • 00:17:29.190 --> 00:17:33.200
  • EXPERIENCE THAT WE HAD BECAUSE IT'S A MESSY
  • 00:17:33.220 --> 00:17:35.270
  • THING, AND IT'S NOT EASY.
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:38.050
  • WHEN I STARTED BRINGING THEM TO THE HOUSE, I WENT
  • 00:17:38.070 --> 00:17:43.160
  • OUT THERE AND I STARTED WITNESSING TO THEM, AND
  • 00:17:43.180 --> 00:17:45.090
  • THEN I BROUGHT THEM TO THE HOUSE, AND THEN WHEN
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:47.020
  • I BROUGHT THEM TO THE HOUSE I WAS MINISTERING
  • 00:17:47.040 --> 00:17:49.040
  • TO THEM AT THE HOUSE.
  • 00:17:49.060 --> 00:17:51.140
  • AT THE TIME WE DIDN'T HAVE A CHURCH BUILDING
  • 00:17:51.160 --> 00:17:52.170
  • OR ANYTHING.
  • 00:17:52.190 --> 00:17:53.290
  • - WE LIVED IN THE PROJECTS.
  • 00:17:54.010 --> 00:17:56.000
  • - WE LIVED IN THE PROJECTS, AND THEN I
  • 00:17:56.020 --> 00:17:57.210
  • BROUGHT THEM IN AND I'M MINISTERING TO THEM.
  • 00:17:57.230 --> 00:17:59.260
  • IT GOT LATE, AND THEN I SAY TO JULIE, JULIE, MAKE
  • 00:17:59.280 --> 00:18:01.080
  • THEM SOMETHING TO EAT.
  • 00:18:01.100 --> 00:18:03.100
  • AND THEN SHE GOES -- I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING
  • 00:18:03.120 --> 00:18:05.160
  • ON, BUT SHE'S IN THE KITCHEN AND SHE'S LOOKING
  • 00:18:05.180 --> 00:18:07.080
  • FOR SOMETHING TO MAKE THEM.
  • 00:18:07.100 --> 00:18:09.110
  • MAYBE YOU CAN TELL THE STORY.
  • 00:18:09.130 --> 00:18:11.000
  • - I ONLY HAD A LITTLE BIT OF PANCAKE MIX, AND
  • 00:18:11.020 --> 00:18:12.220
  • THEN I WAS GOING TO GO TELL THEM, YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:18:12.240 --> 00:18:14.090
  • THERE'S NOTHING TO EAT HERE.
  • 00:18:14.110 --> 00:18:15.210
  • AND I WAS OUT TO LET HIM KNOW, AND HE WAS TELLING
  • 00:18:15.230 --> 00:18:18.250
  • THEM, YOU KNOW, GOD CAN DO THIS FOR YOU, THE WAY
  • 00:18:18.270 --> 00:18:21.210
  • HE WAS SHOWING THEM HIS MARKS.
  • 00:18:21.230 --> 00:18:23.150
  • HE STILL HAS HIS MARKS FROM THE HEROIN ADDICTION.
  • 00:18:23.170 --> 00:18:26.070
  • LOOK. IF HE COULD DO IT FOR ME, HE COULD DO IT FOR YOU.
  • 00:18:26.090 --> 00:18:29.070
  • HE'S A GREAT BIG GOD.
  • 00:18:29.090 --> 00:18:30.170
  • AND I'M LOOKING AT HIM, AND I'M SAYING, I CAN'T
  • 00:18:30.190 --> 00:18:32.110
  • TELL THESE GUYS THAT THERE'S NOTHING TO EAT.
  • 00:18:32.130 --> 00:18:35.080
  • I CAN'T BRING DOWN GOD LIKE THAT.
  • 00:18:35.100 --> 00:18:37.060
  • - BRAGGING ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:18:37.080 --> 00:18:38.280
  • - SO I WENT BACK INTO THE KITCHEN, AND I PUT
  • 00:18:39.000 --> 00:18:41.010
  • THE PANCAKE MIX AND I PUT WATER, AND THEN I STARTED
  • 00:18:41.030 --> 00:18:45.000
  • PRAYING, AND I WAS JUST PRAYING, OH GOD, YOU'VE
  • 00:18:45.020 --> 00:18:48.090
  • GOT TO DO A MIRACLE FOR ME, AND I OPENED MY EYES
  • 00:18:48.110 --> 00:18:51.010
  • AND IT CAME UP ON ME, AND I HAD TO GET ANOTHER BOWL
  • 00:18:51.030 --> 00:18:54.190
  • AND POUR IT INTO ANOTHER BOWL, AND HE MULTIPLIED
  • 00:18:54.210 --> 00:18:57.030
  • IT RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY EYES.
  • 00:18:57.050 --> 00:18:58.240
  • IT WAS MY FIRST WITH MIRACLE, AND I REMEMBER I
  • 00:18:58.260 --> 00:19:01.230
  • MADE PANCAKES FOR EVERYBODY, AND I'D TAKE
  • 00:19:01.250 --> 00:19:04.010
  • IT OUT, I'D TAKE IT OUT TO HIM.
  • 00:19:04.030 --> 00:19:06.170
  • IT'S LATE ALREADY, AND HE SAYS, WHY PANCAKES?
  • 00:19:06.190 --> 00:19:09.160
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:19:09.180 --> 00:19:11.180
  • - I LOVE IT.
  • 00:19:11.200 --> 00:19:12.270
  • - THESE ARE BLESSED PANCAKES, SIR.
  • 00:19:12.290 --> 00:19:14.240
  • - SHE CALLED THE ME ON THE SIDE AND SHE SAYS
  • 00:19:14.260 --> 00:19:17.080
  • LISTEN, YOU EAT THOSE PANCAKES.
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:20.000
  • IT TOOK A MIRACLE!
  • 00:19:20.020 --> 00:19:23.040
  • - MIRACLE PANCAKES. I LOVE IT.
  • 00:19:23.060 --> 00:19:26.120
  • - THAT'S ONE OF THE FIRST MIRACLES.
  • 00:19:26.140 --> 00:19:30.180
  • - YOU KNOW, LOOK, I UNDERSTAND THE EQUIPPING
  • 00:19:30.200 --> 00:19:35.120
  • AND THAT WHEN GOD CALLS YOU, HE'LL GIVE YOU THE
  • 00:19:35.140 --> 00:19:38.280
  • GUTS THAT YOU NEED TO DO SOMETHING, BUT IT FEELS
  • 00:19:39.000 --> 00:19:41.290
  • LIKE YOU'VE DONE SOMETHING NOW FOR 50
  • 00:19:42.010 --> 00:19:44.260
  • YEARS, WE'RE CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF THE
  • 00:19:44.280 --> 00:19:47.030
  • ARGUINZONI'S MINISTRY.
  • 00:19:47.050 --> 00:19:49.170
  • - AND THE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE BEING MINISTERED TO.
  • 00:19:49.190 --> 00:19:51.200
  • - EVERY DAY.
  • 00:19:51.220 --> 00:19:53.080
  • SO WE'RE CELEBRATING THAT, BUT IF WE CAN GET
  • 00:19:53.100 --> 00:19:56.110
  • SOMEBODY TO UNDERSTAND THAT IF IT HAPPENED
  • 00:19:56.130 --> 00:19:59.200
  • FOR YOU, IT CAN HAPPEN FOR THEM.
  • 00:19:59.220 --> 00:20:01.110
  • TALK ABOUT MAYBE SOME OF THE FEARS OR THE CONCERNS
  • 00:20:01.130 --> 00:20:08.020
  • THAT YOU HAD BACK THEN, AND MAYBE THAT WILL
  • 00:20:08.040 --> 00:20:10.150
  • RELATE TO SOME PEOPLE IN OUR VIEWING AUDIENCE.
  • 00:20:10.170 --> 00:20:13.020
  • - TELL THEM ABOUT THE HOW MANY TIMES I WAS
  • 00:20:13.040 --> 00:20:17.050
  • GONNA GET STABBED AND HOW I WAS GONNA GET JUMPED.
  • 00:20:17.070 --> 00:20:22.250
  • - IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, IT WAS BECAUSE WE DIDN'T
  • 00:20:22.270 --> 00:20:25.060
  • HAVE A HOME YET.
  • 00:20:25.080 --> 00:20:26.200
  • WE JUST WOULD BRING THEM TO OUR HOUSE.
  • 00:20:26.220 --> 00:20:28.220
  • SO HE WAS GOING HOME ONE DAY AND WENT TO THE
  • 00:20:28.240 --> 00:20:32.000
  • CORNER STORE AND THERE WAS THESE GUYS THAT WOULD
  • 00:20:32.020 --> 00:20:34.160
  • MUG EVERYBODY THERE BECAUSE WE LIVED IN PROJECTS.
  • 00:20:34.180 --> 00:20:37.090
  • IT WAS THE WORST PART OF EAST LOS ANGELES.
  • 00:20:37.110 --> 00:20:40.060
  • AND THERE WAS A GROUP OF BLACK YOUNG MEN THAT
  • 00:20:40.080 --> 00:20:42.280
  • WOULD DO THIS EVERY DAY. THEY WOULD MUG PEOPLE.
  • 00:20:43.000 --> 00:20:45.080
  • SO SONNY IS GOING, AND THEY, THEY LOOKED AT HIM
  • 00:20:45.100 --> 00:20:52.040
  • AND THEN HE SAYS YOU KNOW, I GOT TO PREPARE
  • 00:20:52.060 --> 00:20:55.000
  • MYSELF, SO HE GOT THE BOTTLE OF SODA AND
  • 00:20:55.020 --> 00:20:56.190
  • TURNED IT UPSIDE DOWN TO GET READY.
  • 00:20:56.210 --> 00:20:58.060
  • - I WAS READY TO GET DOWN AND FIGHT.
  • 00:20:58.080 --> 00:21:00.220
  • - HE TURNED IT AROUND READY TO FIGHT.
  • 00:21:00.240 --> 00:21:03.120
  • AND THEN THESE GUYS, THEY COME UP TO HIM AND THEN
  • 00:21:03.140 --> 00:21:06.250
  • HE SAYS YOU KNOW WHAT, I'M THE PASTOR
  • 00:21:06.270 --> 00:21:10.180
  • RIGHT DOWN THE STREET.
  • 00:21:10.200 --> 00:21:11.290
  • - GOD SPOKE TO ME ABOUT WITNESS TO THEM.
  • 00:21:12.010 --> 00:21:14.130
  • WITNESS TO THEM.
  • 00:21:14.150 --> 00:21:16.080
  • - YEAH, SO HE BEGAN TO WITNESS.
  • 00:21:16.100 --> 00:21:17.200
  • HE SAYS I'M THE PASTOR RIGHT DOWN THE STREET.
  • 00:21:17.220 --> 00:21:19.050
  • IT WAS ONLY A BLOCK AWAY, THE CHURCH, AND HE SAYS I
  • 00:21:19.070 --> 00:21:22.010
  • WAS A DRUG ADDICT, I USED TO KNOCK PEOPLE OVER THE
  • 00:21:22.030 --> 00:21:23.240
  • HEAD AND MUG THEM, HE SAYS, BUT GOD SAVED ME,
  • 00:21:23.260 --> 00:21:27.040
  • AND HE REALLY DID A WORK IN ME, AND I WANT TO
  • 00:21:27.060 --> 00:21:28.150
  • INVITE YOU TO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:21:28.170 --> 00:21:29.290
  • THEY WERE LIKE BLOWN AWAY.
  • 00:21:30.010 --> 00:21:32.140
  • - AND IF HE SAVED ME, HE COULD SAVE YOU.
  • 00:21:32.160 --> 00:21:34.040
  • BUT THE THING ABOUT IT IS THAT YOU KNOW I REALLY
  • 00:21:34.060 --> 00:21:38.120
  • DIDN'T FEEL ADEQUATE WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT
  • 00:21:38.140 --> 00:21:40.250
  • BECAUSE THE STRUGGLES THAT YOU HAVE IN BRINGING
  • 00:21:40.270 --> 00:21:44.060
  • THOSE PEOPLE AND TO SEE THEM CONVERT,
  • 00:21:44.080 --> 00:21:47.010
  • WE DIDN'T HAVE THE BREAKTHROUGH YET.
  • 00:21:47.030 --> 00:21:49.240
  • AND WHEN YOU GO, YOU BEGIN MINISTRY, THE
  • 00:21:49.260 --> 00:21:52.170
  • BREAKTHROUGH DOESN'T HAPPEN JUST LIKE THAT.
  • 00:21:52.190 --> 00:21:55.250
  • AND THERE WAS A TIME WHERE I HAD TO GO AND
  • 00:21:55.270 --> 00:21:59.070
  • WE DIDN'T HAVE FINANCES, WE DIDN'T HAVE SUPPORT,
  • 00:21:59.090 --> 00:22:03.120
  • FINANCIAL SUPPORT. I WOULD GO TO THE PAWNSHOP
  • 00:22:03.140 --> 00:22:05.260
  • AND WHAT DID I HAVE?
  • 00:22:05.280 --> 00:22:08.040
  • - YOU HAD A REEL-TO-REEL THAT HE WOULD PAWN
  • 00:22:08.060 --> 00:22:09.270
  • WHENEVER WE NEEDED MONEY.
  • 00:22:09.290 --> 00:22:11.200
  • - I WOULD TAKE IT TO THE PAWNSHOP AND I WOULD PAWN
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:14.100
  • IT. AND THEN WHEN I HAD SOME MONEY,
  • 00:22:14.120 --> 00:22:16.000
  • I WOULD TAKE IT OUT. AND THEN WHEN I NEED MONEY,
  • 00:22:16.020 --> 00:22:18.060
  • I'D TAKE IT TO THE PAWNSHOP.
  • 00:22:18.080 --> 00:22:20.000
  • AND ONE OF THOSE DAYS WHERE I WAS TAKING IT TO
  • 00:22:20.020 --> 00:22:22.260
  • THE PAWNSHOP, THERE WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:22:22.280 --> 00:22:26.080
  • WERE PART OF THE CONGREGATION AND SAW ME
  • 00:22:26.100 --> 00:22:29.150
  • PAWNING IT, AND SAID YOU'RE PAWNING?
  • 00:22:29.170 --> 00:22:32.260
  • YOU'RE PASTOR SONNY!
  • 00:22:32.280 --> 00:22:35.050
  • AND I CAME BACK TO HER AND I SAYS I'M NEVER
  • 00:22:35.070 --> 00:22:37.150
  • GONNA PAWN ANYTHING AGAIN.
  • 00:22:37.170 --> 00:22:39.030
  • I'M GONNA BE ABLE TO REALLY TRUST GOD.
  • 00:22:39.050 --> 00:22:41.000
  • IT WAS HARD FOR ME TO TRUST GOD, EVEN WITH THAT
  • 00:22:41.020 --> 00:22:44.250
  • MIRACLE THAT GOD PERFORMED, IT WAS STILL
  • 00:22:44.270 --> 00:22:47.100
  • VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:22:47.120 --> 00:22:50.050
  • GOD WAS ABLE TO MEET MY NEEDS.
  • 00:22:50.070 --> 00:22:52.040
  • AND IT GOT SO BAD ONE TIME THAT I TOLD THEM
  • 00:22:52.060 --> 00:22:55.160
  • I'M GONNA QUIT. WE'RE GONNA QUIT.
  • 00:22:55.180 --> 00:22:57.270
  • WE'RE GONNA QUIT. THIS IS NOT GOOD.
  • 00:22:57.290 --> 00:23:00.170
  • AND NOT ONLY THAT BUT THEN YOU GET DAVE AND
  • 00:23:00.190 --> 00:23:04.010
  • EVEN DAVE WAS SAYING SONNY, WHAT ARE YOU
  • 00:23:04.030 --> 00:23:06.110
  • TRYING TO BUILD A DRUG ADDICT CHURCH?
  • 00:23:06.130 --> 00:23:09.040
  • WE HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:23:09.060 --> 00:23:11.030
  • THEN NICKY, SONNY, WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU?
  • 00:23:11.050 --> 00:23:14.110
  • YOU BUILDING A DRUG ADDICT CHURCH?
  • 00:23:14.130 --> 00:23:16.270
  • THERE'S NO SUCH THING.
  • 00:23:16.290 --> 00:23:18.090
  • HOW YOU GONNA SUPPORT YOURSELF?
  • 00:23:18.110 --> 00:23:21.000
  • AND ONE DAY I JUST SAID TO HER, WE'VE HAD IT,
  • 00:23:21.020 --> 00:23:23.060
  • WE'RE GONNA QUIT.
  • 00:23:23.080 --> 00:23:25.140
  • AND THEN THERE WAS A PASTOR THAT WAS A LOCAL
  • 00:23:25.160 --> 00:23:27.130
  • PASTOR THAT I USED TO HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM
  • 00:23:27.150 --> 00:23:30.150
  • ONCE IN A WHILE, AN ASSEMBLY OF GOD PASTOR,
  • 00:23:30.170 --> 00:23:32.250
  • AND I SAID, HE SAID LET'S HAVE LUNCH TOGETHER, AND
  • 00:23:32.270 --> 00:23:37.100
  • I WENT AHEAD AND HAD LUNCH TOGETHER WITH HIM.
  • 00:23:37.120 --> 00:23:39.270
  • MY WIFE AND I.
  • 00:23:39.290 --> 00:23:41.090
  • AND THEN I TOLD HIM YOU KNOW WHAT, WE CAME TO
  • 00:23:41.110 --> 00:23:43.200
  • THE PLACE THAT IT IS TIME TO GO.
  • 00:23:43.220 --> 00:23:46.000
  • WE'RE GONNA QUIT.
  • 00:23:46.020 --> 00:23:47.070
  • I'M GONNA GO BACK TO NEW YORK CITY.
  • 00:23:47.090 --> 00:23:49.100
  • THIS IS TOO MUCH OVER HERE.
  • 00:23:49.120 --> 00:23:51.060
  • AND I MEAN I REALLY FELT LIKE IT'S TOO MUCH,
  • 00:23:51.080 --> 00:23:53.140
  • I CAN'T HANDLE IT, TOO MUCH PRESSURE, THIS CAN'T BE
  • 00:23:53.160 --> 00:23:56.210
  • GOD. AND I WENT AHEAD AND I TOLD HIM, WE MADE A
  • 00:23:56.230 --> 00:24:00.200
  • DECISION THAT WE'RE GONNA QUIT.
  • 00:24:00.220 --> 00:24:03.120
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE SPIRIT OF GOD, RIGHT IN
  • 00:24:03.140 --> 00:24:07.050
  • THE RESTAURANT CAME UPON HIM AND HE BEGAN TO
  • 00:24:07.070 --> 00:24:10.150
  • PROPHESY. HE SAID IF YOU QUIT, YOU'LL REGRET IT FOR THE
  • 00:24:10.170 --> 00:24:16.140
  • REST OF YOUR LIFE IF YOU QUIT RIGHT NOW
  • 00:24:16.160 --> 00:24:20.000
  • BECAUSE GOD HAS A MINISTRY FOR YOU.
  • 00:24:20.020 --> 00:24:22.240
  • AND MANY TIMES WHEN YOU HEAR A PROPHECY FROM GOD
  • 00:24:22.260 --> 00:24:26.220
  • YOU GET HAPPY, YOU GET EXCITED.
  • 00:24:26.240 --> 00:24:28.180
  • I GOT DEPRESSED.
  • 00:24:28.200 --> 00:24:30.190
  • I SAYS YOU MEAN I GOTTA GO BACK AGAIN TO THIS MINISTRY?
  • 00:24:30.210 --> 00:24:35.240
  • I HAD ALL PLANNED TO GO BACK TO NEW YORK CITY, I
  • 00:24:35.260 --> 00:24:39.030
  • HAD PLANS TO GET A NICE HOUSE FOR HER, AND NOW
  • 00:24:39.050 --> 00:24:41.270
  • ALL OF A SUDDEN ALL MY PLANS ARE SHATTERED
  • 00:24:41.290 --> 00:24:44.010
  • BECAUSE OF THIS PROPHESY.
  • 00:24:44.030 --> 00:24:46.020
  • AGAIN, I COULD HAVE REBUILT BUT THEN AGAIN I
  • 00:24:46.040 --> 00:24:49.140
  • SAID NO, IF THIS IS GOD THEN I'M GONNA TRUST GOD.
  • 00:24:49.160 --> 00:24:52.150
  • RIGHT AFTER THAT IS WHERE I HAD THE BREAKTHROUGH.
  • 00:24:52.170 --> 00:24:54.220
  • - LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, I TOTALLY FEEL
  • 00:24:54.240 --> 00:24:58.000
  • LIKE YOU'RE TALKING TO PEOPLE IN
  • 00:24:58.020 --> 00:25:00.210
  • THE AUDIENCE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:25:00.230 --> 00:25:02.130
  • IF THAT WORD CAME JUST WHEN YOU NEEDED IT, I
  • 00:25:02.150 --> 00:25:05.240
  • THINK YOU HAVE A WORD FOR THIS AUDIENCE.
  • 00:25:05.260 --> 00:25:07.200
  • JUST LOOK AT THEM.
  • 00:25:07.220 --> 00:25:08.200
  • - I SURE DO.
  • 00:25:08.220 --> 00:25:09.290
  • I HAVE A WORD FOR YOU THAT I WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:25:10.010 --> 00:25:12.070
  • THAT GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:25:12.090 --> 00:25:15.000
  • HE HAS A DIVINE WILL FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:25:15.020 --> 00:25:18.100
  • AND IT'S NOT GONNA BE EASY.
  • 00:25:18.120 --> 00:25:20.000
  • SOMETIMES YOU THINK JUST BECAUSE GOD IS LEADING
  • 00:25:20.020 --> 00:25:22.130
  • YOU IN A SPECIAL DIRECTION OR GOD GAVE YOU
  • 00:25:22.150 --> 00:25:26.230
  • A PROMISE THAT HE WAS GONNA DO SOMETHING FOR
  • 00:25:26.250 --> 00:25:29.050
  • YOU, IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT IT'S GONNA HAPPEN RIGHT AWAY.
  • 00:25:29.070 --> 00:25:31.020
  • I THINK THERE HAS TO BE A MOLDING THAT'S GONNA TAKE
  • 00:25:31.040 --> 00:25:35.050
  • PLACE IN YOUR LIFE BEFORE GOD IS ABLE TO USE YOU
  • 00:25:35.070 --> 00:25:37.240
  • THE WAY HE WANTS TO USE YOU.
  • 00:25:37.260 --> 00:25:40.070
  • SO IT'S NOT GONNA BE EASY, BUT THIS IS WHERE
  • 00:25:40.090 --> 00:25:42.130
  • YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR TRUST AND CONFIDENCE IN
  • 00:25:42.150 --> 00:25:45.030
  • GOD AND ANYTHING YOU'RE GONNA DO FOR GOD,
  • 00:25:45.050 --> 00:25:47.120
  • ANYTHING THAT GOD CALLS YOU TO DO, YOU'RE GONNA
  • 00:25:47.140 --> 00:25:50.230
  • FEEL INADEQUATE BECAUSE IF HE CALLS YOU TO DO
  • 00:25:50.250 --> 00:25:53.160
  • SOMETHING, IT'S GONNA TAKE THE POWER OF GOD,
  • 00:25:53.180 --> 00:25:56.060
  • IT'S GONNA BE TOO BIG FOR YOU TO DO BY YOURSELF.
  • 00:25:56.080 --> 00:26:00.220
  • THAT'S HOW BIG IT IS IF GOD IS CALLING YOU TO DO
  • 00:26:00.240 --> 00:26:04.120
  • IT. AND THE ONLY WAY THAT IT'S GONNA BE TAKING
  • 00:26:04.140 --> 00:26:06.260
  • PLACE, THE ONLY WAY IT'S GONNA BE DONE, IT HAS TO
  • 00:26:06.280 --> 00:26:09.080
  • BE GOD WORKING THROUGH YOU.
  • 00:26:09.100 --> 00:26:11.170
  • AND THERE MAY BE SOME OF YOU RIGHT NOW AS I SHARED
  • 00:26:11.190 --> 00:26:14.010
  • RIGHT NOW AND I'M SHARING THIS TESTIMONY, YOU MAY
  • 00:26:14.030 --> 00:26:16.290
  • BE EXACTLY WHERE I AM RIGHT NOW, WHERE I WAS AT

  • WELL, THIS IS A WORD FOR YOU.

  • I BELIEVE GOD BROUGHT IT OUT SO THAT YOU COULD
  • 00:26:28.080 --> 00:26:31.030
  • HEAR IT AND KNOW THAT GOD IS FAITHFUL.
  • 00:26:31.050 --> 00:26:34.270
  • IF GOD DID IT FOR ME, HE COULD DO IT FOR YOU.
  • 00:26:34.290 --> 00:26:37.130
  • GOD DOESN'T GO BACK ON HIS PROMISES.
  • 00:26:37.150 --> 00:26:39.130
  • IF GOD GAVE YOU A PROMISE, HE'S GOING TO FULFILL IT.
  • 00:26:39.150 --> 00:26:43.180
  • BUT YOU NEED TO PUT YOUR TRUST IN GOD.
  • 00:26:43.200 --> 00:26:45.260
  • EVERYBODY FEELS INADEQUATE.
  • 00:26:45.280 --> 00:26:47.260
  • I STILL FEEL INADEQUATE.
  • 00:26:47.280 --> 00:26:49.240
  • EVEN COMING HERE I GET NERVOUS AND I FEEL

  • INADEQUATE, BUT THIS IS WHERE WE HAVE TO PUT OUR

  • - OR THEY COULD ACTUALLY ALSO SPONSOR ONE OF OUR
  • 00:31:59.270 --> 00:32:04.150
  • HOMES. WE DON'T CHARGE FOR PEOPLE THAT COME IN,
  • 00:32:04.170 --> 00:32:08.210
  • WE DON'T CHARGE.
  • 00:32:08.230 --> 00:32:10.180
  • ALSO IN THE VERY BEGINNING OF OUR
  • 00:32:10.200 --> 00:32:12.090
  • MINISTRY, WE HAD FOR ONE YEAR -- AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:32:12.110 --> 00:32:17.040
  • THE GOVERNMENT WANTED TO GIVE YOU FINANCES, SO FOR
  • 00:32:17.060 --> 00:32:20.070
  • ONE YEAR WE TOOK GOVERNMENT FUNDS FOR ONE
  • 00:32:20.090 --> 00:32:23.030
  • YEAR AND THEN AFTER THAT YEAR WE NOTICED THAT THEY
  • 00:32:23.050 --> 00:32:26.130
  • HAD SO MANY RESTRICTIONS THAT WOULD ACTUALLY KILL
  • 00:32:26.150 --> 00:32:29.270
  • OUR MINISTRY AND KILL OUR EFFECTIVENESS
  • 00:32:29.290 --> 00:32:32.100
  • AND WE TURNED IT DOWN.
  • 00:32:32.120 --> 00:32:33.290
  • - MATT CROUCH: YOU'RE A FAITH ORGANIZATION.
  • 00:32:34.010 --> 00:32:35.070
  • - FAITH ORGANIZATION, AND THAT'S THE WAY WE'VE
  • 00:32:35.090 --> 00:32:38.000
  • BEEN OPERATING FOR ALL THESE YEARS.
  • 00:32:38.020 --> 00:32:39.290
  • - VICTORY OUTREACH IS NOT A HOTEL.
  • 00:32:40.010 --> 00:32:41.190
  • PEOPLE ARE NOT PAYING TO GO THERE.
  • 00:32:41.210 --> 00:32:43.200
  • THEY'RE BEING SUPPORTED BY GIFTS AND DONATIONS
  • 00:32:43.220 --> 00:32:47.100
  • AND WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT IN THE VIEWING
  • 00:32:47.120 --> 00:32:49.130
  • AUDIENCE AND WE WANT TO HELP THEM.
  • 00:32:49.150 --> 00:32:51.090
  • CONTINUE YOUR STORY.
  • 00:32:51.110 --> 00:32:53.070
  • WHEN WE LEFT OFF, YOU WERE BRINGING PEOPLE INTO
  • 00:32:53.090 --> 00:32:57.270
  • YOUR OWN PERSONAL HOME, YOU WERE--
  • 00:32:57.290 --> 00:33:00.290
  • - WE LEFT OFF I WANTED TO QUIT.
  • 00:33:01.010 --> 00:33:03.060
  • - YOU WANTED TO QUIT.
  • 00:33:03.080 --> 00:33:04.170
  • STILL KIND OF WANT TO QUIT BUT YOU'RE NOT GOING TO.
  • 00:33:04.190 --> 00:33:07.090
  • - OR YOU'RE GONNA REGRET IT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:33:07.110 --> 00:33:10.180
  • - YOU MIGHT AS WELL KEEP GOING NOW.
  • 00:33:10.200 --> 00:33:12.090
  • - I RECEIVE THAT PROPHECY RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:33:12.110 --> 00:33:15.230
  • - OKAY, I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:33:15.250 --> 00:33:17.230
  • SO YOU HAVE CHILDREN, THEY WERE BEING RAISED UP
  • 00:33:17.250 --> 00:33:20.170
  • IN THIS. HOW WAS THAT FOR YOU?
  • 00:33:20.190 --> 00:33:23.240
  • - WELL, IT STARTED OFF WE'D JUST TAKEN IN A FEW,
  • 00:33:23.260 --> 00:33:28.140
  • AND WE LIVED LIKE THAT FOR NOT ONE YEAR, OR TWO
  • 00:33:28.160 --> 00:33:31.140
  • YEARS, OR THREE YEARS, OR FOUR YEARS; WE LIVED LIKE
  • 00:33:31.160 --> 00:33:33.150
  • THAT FOR 14 YEARS TAKING IN PEOPLE INTO OUR HOME.
  • 00:33:33.170 --> 00:33:37.050
  • - LAURIE CROUCH: WITH YOUR OWN LITTLE KIDS?
  • 00:33:37.070 --> 00:33:38.230
  • - WITH MY CHILDREN GROWING UP.
  • 00:33:38.250 --> 00:33:40.230
  • AND I THOUGHT I WAS GONNA LIVE LIKE THAT FOREVER.
  • 00:33:40.250 --> 00:33:43.050
  • I LOVED IT.
  • 00:33:43.070 --> 00:33:44.210
  • IT WAS UP TO 75 PEOPLE LIVING WITH US.
  • 00:33:44.230 --> 00:33:46.190
  • - LAURIE CROUCH: OH, MY GOODNESS!
  • 00:33:46.210 --> 00:33:48.150
  • - AND ONE OF THE DAYS I WAS LOOKING THROUGH MY
  • 00:33:48.170 --> 00:33:50.290
  • DAUGHTER'S DIARY, AND IT READ HERE COMES MY MOTHER
  • 00:33:51.010 --> 00:33:54.120
  • AGAIN, SHE'S PUTTING A DRUG ADDICT INTO MY BED
  • 00:33:54.140 --> 00:33:57.150
  • AGAIN, AND I HAVE TO GO SLEEP IN THEIR BED
  • 00:33:57.170 --> 00:34:01.200
  • BECAUSE SHE'S GIVING UP MY BED.
  • 00:34:01.220 --> 00:34:04.020
  • AND I REALIZED MY DAUGHTER IS NOW 14 YEARS
  • 00:34:04.040 --> 00:34:06.210
  • OLD, AND IT WAS AFFECTING HER, AND SO THEN
  • 00:34:06.230 --> 00:34:10.010
  • I STARTED TO PRAY.
  • 00:34:10.030 --> 00:34:11.170
  • I SAID LORD, I NEED MY OWN HOUSE.
  • 00:34:11.190 --> 00:34:13.040
  • I NEED A HOUSE.
  • 00:34:13.060 --> 00:34:14.220
  • AND THEN MIRACULOUSLY HE CAME HOME ONE DAY, AND HE
  • 00:34:14.240 --> 00:34:19.050
  • PRESENTED ME WITH A KEY TO A HOUSE, AND WE WERE
  • 00:34:19.070 --> 00:34:22.080
  • ABLE TO MOVE OUT OF REHAB.
  • 00:34:22.100 --> 00:34:24.010
  • BUT MY CHILDREN, THEY GREW UP LIKE THAT,
  • 00:34:24.030 --> 00:34:26.010
  • AND THEY LOVED IT.
  • 00:34:26.030 --> 00:34:28.040
  • THEY LOVED THE DRUG ADDICT, THEY LOVED THE
  • 00:34:28.060 --> 00:34:30.080
  • PERSON OFF THE STREET.
  • 00:34:30.100 --> 00:34:31.250
  • AND TO THIS DAY, THEY CAN IDENTIFY WITH ANYBODY,
  • 00:34:31.270 --> 00:34:35.050
  • WITH SOMEBODY FROM THE STREET OR CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:34:35.070 --> 00:34:38.160
  • THEY CAN IDENTIFY WITH JUST ABOUT ANYBODY.
  • 00:34:38.180 --> 00:34:40.180
  • - AND THEY'RE ALL IN THE MINISTRY.
  • 00:34:40.200 --> 00:34:42.150
  • - YEAH, ALL FIVE OF THEM ARE BACKING US UP IN THE
  • 00:34:42.170 --> 00:34:45.000
  • MINISTRY, THEY'RE ALL INVOLVED, AND NOW
  • 00:34:45.020 --> 00:34:46.200
  • MY GRANDCHILDREN ARE INVOLVED.
  • 00:34:46.220 --> 00:34:48.170
  • SO IT'S BEEN SUCH A BLESSING FROM GOD.
  • 00:34:48.190 --> 00:34:51.120
  • - WHEN WE HAVE THE BREAKTHROUGH AFTER THAT,
  • 00:34:51.140 --> 00:34:54.010
  • JUST WHEN I WANTED TO QUIT IS WHEN ALL OF A
  • 00:34:54.030 --> 00:34:56.120
  • SUDDEN GOD BEGAN TO--
  • 00:34:56.140 --> 00:34:58.190
  • - MATT: WHAT DID THAT FEEL LIKE? WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:34:58.210 --> 00:35:00.100
  • - IT WAS LIKE A RELEASE THAT TOOK PLACE, AND THEN
  • 00:35:00.120 --> 00:35:03.240
  • THERE WAS A SCRIPTURE THAT WAS GIVEN TO ME.
  • 00:35:03.260 --> 00:35:06.210
  • AND THE SCRIPTURE WAS IN ISAIAH 45 THAT TALKS
  • 00:35:06.230 --> 00:35:11.150
  • ABOUT TREASURES OUT OF DARKNESS.
  • 00:35:11.170 --> 00:35:14.210
  • YOU SHALL RECEIVE THE TREASURES OUT OF DARKNESS.
  • 00:35:14.230 --> 00:35:17.240
  • AND I'VE GIVEN YOU THOSE TREASURES.
  • 00:35:17.260 --> 00:35:19.210
  • SO I TOOK AHOLD OF THAT SCRIPTURE AND THEN WE
  • 00:35:19.230 --> 00:35:23.040
  • BEGAN TO MOVE FORWARD.
  • 00:35:23.060 --> 00:35:24.120
  • AND THAT'S WHEN WE BEGAN TO HAVE A BREAKTHROUGH.
  • 00:35:24.140 --> 00:35:26.040
  • IF I WOULD HAVE QUIT, THE BREAKTHROUGH WAS
  • 00:35:26.060 --> 00:35:28.220
  • RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER.
  • 00:35:28.240 --> 00:35:30.140
  • AND FROM THERE THE BREAKTHROUGH BEGAN TO TAKE
  • 00:35:30.160 --> 00:35:32.030
  • PLACE. NOW WHAT DO YOU DO WITH A BUNCH OF DRUG ADDICTS
  • 00:35:32.050 --> 00:35:38.100
  • WITHIN YOUR CHURCH? WELL, NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:35:38.120 --> 00:35:41.280
  • TRY TO PREACH TO THEM ABOUT GO GET A JOB.
  • 00:35:42.000 --> 00:35:44.050
  • - STEP ONE!
  • 00:35:44.070 --> 00:35:47.240
  • - PAY YOUR TITHES.
  • 00:35:47.260 --> 00:35:52.020
  • - THEY WOULD PAY THEIR TITHES.
  • 00:35:52.040 --> 00:35:53.090
  • THEY WOULD PUT A FOOD STAMP IN THERE.
  • 00:35:53.110 --> 00:35:54.290
  • - YEAH, FOOD STAMPS IN THE OFFERING.
  • 00:35:55.010 --> 00:35:58.010
  • AND THEN RIGHT FROM THERE IS WHERE ALL OF A SUDDEN
  • 00:35:58.030 --> 00:36:03.130
  • I WAS PREACHING ONE DAY, AND AS I'M PREACHING TO
  • 00:36:03.150 --> 00:36:06.130
  • THEM, THE SPIRIT OF GOD CAME UPON ME AND I BEGAN
  • 00:36:06.150 --> 00:36:08.260
  • TO PROPHESY, AND I WOULD SAY -- BEFORE THAT,
  • 00:36:08.280 --> 00:36:12.090
  • I DIDN'T HAVE NO GLOBAL VISION.
  • 00:36:12.110 --> 00:36:14.050
  • IT WAS JUST ONE STEP AT A TIME, GOD GIVING YOU SOME
  • 00:36:14.070 --> 00:36:17.170
  • INSIGHT, AND WE'RE DOING SOMETHING THAT HAD NEVER
  • 00:36:17.190 --> 00:36:19.210
  • BEEN DONE BEFORE, SO ONE STEP AT A TIME.
  • 00:36:19.230 --> 00:36:23.050
  • AND THEN I WOULD SAY OKAY, I DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:36:23.070 --> 00:36:25.240
  • WHAT WAS GONNA HAPPEN LATER ON.
  • 00:36:25.260 --> 00:36:28.000
  • WHERE WAS I GONNA TAKE THESE PEOPLE?
  • 00:36:28.020 --> 00:36:29.120
  • WHAT WAS GONNA HAPPEN TO THEM?
  • 00:36:29.140 --> 00:36:30.280
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN AS I BEGAN TO, I WAS PREACHING
  • 00:36:31.000 --> 00:36:33.270
  • ONE DAY AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD CAME UPON ME AND I
  • 00:36:33.290 --> 00:36:37.240
  • BEGAN TO PROPHESY, AND I SAID MANY OF YOU GOD IS
  • 00:36:37.260 --> 00:36:41.110
  • GONNA RAISE UP PASTORS AND EVANGELISTS AND
  • 00:36:41.130 --> 00:36:45.060
  • TEACHERS AND MISSIONARIES, AND HE'S
  • 00:36:45.080 --> 00:36:47.100
  • GONNA SEND YOU ALL OVER THE WORLD TO TAKE THE
  • 00:36:47.120 --> 00:36:49.280
  • GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:36:50.000 --> 00:36:52.230
  • AND AFTER THE ANOINTING LIFTED FROM ME, THEN I
  • 00:36:52.250 --> 00:36:55.270
  • LOOK AND I SEE REALITY, REALITY OF THE PEOPLE
  • 00:36:55.290 --> 00:36:58.210
  • THAT WERE THERE.
  • 00:36:58.230 --> 00:37:00.250
  • AND THEY WERE LOOKING AT EACH OTHER,
  • 00:37:00.270 --> 00:37:02.050
  • WHO IS HE TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:37:02.070 --> 00:37:05.130
  • - CERTAINLY NOT TALKING TO ME.
  • 00:37:05.150 --> 00:37:07.040
  • - I WENT AND I TOLD HER AFTER THE SERVICE, I SAID
  • 00:37:07.060 --> 00:37:10.180
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT I SAID?
  • 00:37:10.200 --> 00:37:12.290
  • SHE SAYS YOU SURE WERE TALKING BIG, THAT'S ALL I
  • 00:37:13.010 --> 00:37:17.030
  • KNOW. AND IN ONE OF THOSE SERVICES, THIS GUY CAME
  • 00:37:17.050 --> 00:37:21.030
  • UP TO ME, THE VERY LEAST PERSON THAT I WOULD EVER
  • 00:37:21.050 --> 00:37:24.240
  • CHOOSE TO BE A PASTOR, AND HE CAME UP TO ME AND
  • 00:37:24.260 --> 00:37:28.220
  • HE SAID TO ME, YOU KNOW WHAT, AND HE HAD THIS
  • 00:37:28.240 --> 00:37:31.010
  • TALKED OUT THE SIDE OF HIS MOUTH, YOU KNOW WHAT
  • 00:37:31.030 --> 00:37:33.270
  • PASTOR, I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT EVERYTHING I'VE BEEN
  • 00:37:33.290 --> 00:37:37.040
  • LISTENING TO EVERYTHING YOU'VE BEEN SAYING AND I
  • 00:37:37.060 --> 00:37:39.230
  • WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT ME.
  • 00:37:39.250 --> 00:37:43.080
  • - MY GOODNESS.
  • 00:37:43.100 --> 00:37:44.270
  • - AND I LOOKED AT HIM AND I SAID THIS IS THE
  • 00:37:44.290 --> 00:37:47.220
  • LAST GUY THAT I WOULD EVER SEND ANYWHERE, AND
  • 00:37:47.240 --> 00:37:51.230
  • I SAID GO BACK TO YOUR SEAT, JUST BE COOL
  • 00:37:51.250 --> 00:37:53.180
  • AND GO BACK TO YOUR SEAT.
  • 00:37:53.200 --> 00:37:56.080
  • AND THEN AGAIN IT HAPPENED TO ME AGAIN, AND
  • 00:37:56.100 --> 00:37:58.280
  • HE WOULD COME UP AGAIN, I WANT TO REMIND YOU THAT
  • 00:37:59.000 --> 00:38:01.060
  • I'M THAT GUY THAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:38:01.080 --> 00:38:04.100
  • YOU KNOW THAT HE BECAME THE VERY FIRST PASTOR
  • 00:38:04.120 --> 00:38:07.220
  • THAT WE SENT OUT.
  • 00:38:07.240 --> 00:38:09.200
  • HE WAS THE VERY FIRST ONE.
  • 00:38:09.220 --> 00:38:11.000
  • AND THEN FROM THERE GOD BEGAN TO RAISE UP OTHERS,
  • 00:38:11.020 --> 00:38:13.180
  • AND WE BEGAN TO SEND THEM OUT, AND OTHERS THAT WE
  • 00:38:13.200 --> 00:38:16.030
  • BEGAN TO SEND THEM OUT, AND THAT'S THE WAY THE
  • 00:38:16.050 --> 00:38:17.280
  • MINISTRY GREW.
  • 00:38:18.000 --> 00:38:19.140
  • - I WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS SONNY BUT I JUST PUT
  • 00:38:19.160 --> 00:38:21.270
  • TWO AND TWO TOGETHER.
  • 00:38:21.290 --> 00:38:23.100
  • THE REASON THAT PAUL CROUCH AND SONNY
  • 00:38:23.120 --> 00:38:25.040
  • ARGUINZONI GOT ALONG IS BECAUSE YOU WERE BOTH
  • 00:38:25.060 --> 00:38:28.090
  • PIONEERING SOMETHING THAT HAD NEVER BEEN DONE
  • 00:38:28.110 --> 00:38:30.030
  • BEFORE. THERE HAD NEVER BEEN A STATION GROUP OF
  • 00:38:30.050 --> 00:38:35.020
  • CHRISTIAN TELEVISION STATIONS EVER RAISED UP,
  • 00:38:35.040 --> 00:38:37.120
  • AND THERE HAD NEVER BEEN A DRUG ADDICT CHURCH
  • 00:38:37.140 --> 00:38:39.070
  • CREATED THAT MULTIPLIED GLOBALLY.
  • 00:38:39.090 --> 00:38:41.280
  • - NOT JUST THAT BUT HE HAD A PASSION.
  • 00:38:42.000 --> 00:38:43.220
  • RIGHT AWAY, AS SOON AS I MET PAUL, HE HAD A
  • 00:38:43.240 --> 00:38:46.240
  • PASSION FOR OUR MINISTRY. A PASSION FOR OUR MINISTRY.
  • 00:38:46.260 --> 00:38:51.020
  • THAT'S WHY HE WENT AHEAD AND OPENED THE DOORS, AND
  • 00:38:51.040 --> 00:38:53.090
  • HE SAID IF WE CAN HELP YOU IN ANY WAY TO REACH
  • 00:38:53.110 --> 00:38:55.110
  • THE INNER CITIES, AND THAT'S WHERE WE CAME WITH
  • 00:38:55.130 --> 00:38:57.130
  • THE PROGRAM TREASURES OUT OF DARKNESS.
  • 00:38:57.150 --> 00:39:00.160
  • IT WAS AN AWARD-WINNING PROGRAM. RIGHT JULIE?
  • 00:39:00.180 --> 00:39:02.240
  • - YES.
  • 00:39:02.260 --> 00:39:04.160
  • - AND SHE WAS ALSO HERE WORKING HERE.
  • 00:39:04.180 --> 00:39:07.180
  • WHAT WERE YOU DOING?
  • 00:39:07.200 --> 00:39:09.160
  • - I WAS IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS FOR FIVE YEARS.
  • 00:39:09.180 --> 00:39:11.270
  • - PUBLIC AFFAIRS.
  • 00:39:11.290 --> 00:39:13.250
  • SO THERE'S BEEN A PARTNERING THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE.
  • 00:39:13.270 --> 00:39:19.020
  • - TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE RED--
  • 00:39:19.040 --> 00:39:21.030
  • WHAT DO YOU CALL IT?
  • 00:39:21.050 --> 00:39:22.150
  • - CODE RED.
  • 00:39:22.170 --> 00:39:24.290
  • IT'S AN INTERESTING THING.
  • 00:39:25.010 --> 00:39:27.190
  • - TELL US ABOUT THAT, WILL YOU HELP?
  • 00:39:27.210 --> 00:39:29.130
  • - WE GATHER THE WOMEN, AND THIS GOES ON ALL OVER THE
  • 00:39:29.150 --> 00:39:31.120
  • WORLD, AND WE DO IT FOR TWO DAYS.
  • 00:39:31.140 --> 00:39:34.040
  • IT'S A PROSTITUTE OUTREACH, AND WE RENT A HOTEL RIGHT IN
  • 00:39:34.060 --> 00:39:38.050
  • THE MIDDLE OF WHERE THEY'RE DOING THEIR THING, AND WE GO
  • 00:39:38.070 --> 00:39:41.250
  • OUT, AND WE WITNESS WEARING CODE RED SHIRTS,
  • 00:39:41.270 --> 00:39:44.200
  • AND THERE'S HUNDREDS OF WOMEN IN EACH PLACE.
  • 00:39:44.220 --> 00:39:48.060
  • AND THEY GO OUT NIGHT AND DAY, BRINGING THEM BACK TO
  • 00:39:48.080 --> 00:39:50.210
  • THE HOTEL THAT WE RENTED.
  • 00:39:50.230 --> 00:39:52.210
  • AND WE ALSO SET UP STATIONS WHERE THEY CAN DO THEIR
  • 00:39:52.230 --> 00:39:55.150
  • NAILS OR HAIR AND TALK TO THEM AND WIN
  • 00:39:55.170 --> 00:39:58.150
  • THEM TO THE LORD.
  • 00:39:58.170 --> 00:40:01.020
  • AND WE HAVE HAD SUCH A GREAT RESPONSE.
  • 00:40:01.040 --> 00:40:03.010
  • MANY OF THE GIRLS HAVE COME INTO OUR CHURCHES
  • 00:40:03.030 --> 00:40:06.280
  • AND BEEN REACHED.
  • 00:40:07.000 --> 00:40:08.130
  • YOU CAN'T JUST REACH THEM BY JUST PRAYING FOR THEM.
  • 00:40:08.150 --> 00:40:11.190
  • YOU HAVE TO GO OUT THERE AND ACTUALLY TELL THEM THAT
  • 00:40:11.210 --> 00:40:15.090
  • THERE IS AN ANSWER, AND THEY'RE VERY RESPONSIVE.
  • 00:40:15.110 --> 00:40:18.040
  • IT'S SURPRISING HOW MANY HAVE RESPONDED.
  • 00:40:18.060 --> 00:40:20.270
  • - YOU KNOW, ONE OF OUR CONFERENCES,
  • 00:40:20.290 --> 00:40:24.080
  • WE HAD A WHOLE CHOIR. HOW MANY WERE THERE?
  • 00:40:24.100 --> 00:40:26.230
  • - A THOUSAND.
  • 00:40:26.250 --> 00:40:28.210
  • - A THOUSAND WOMEN THAT WERE PROSTITUTES AND CAME
  • 00:40:28.230 --> 00:40:32.100
  • OUT OF THE STREETS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD IN ONE
  • 00:40:32.120 --> 00:40:34.210
  • OF OUR CONFERENCES.
  • 00:40:34.230 --> 00:40:37.090
  • WE HAD DAVID WILKERSON AS THE SPEAKER THAT NIGHT.
  • 00:40:37.110 --> 00:40:39.190
  • YOU KNOW, DAVE HAS BEEN INVOLVED A LOT IN
  • 00:40:39.210 --> 00:40:41.150
  • INNER CITY MINISTRY.
  • 00:40:41.170 --> 00:40:43.070
  • THAT'S WHERE GOD ACTUALLY RAISED HIM UP TO
  • 00:40:43.090 --> 00:40:45.210
  • REACH OUT TO THEM. HE MADE A COMMENT.
  • 00:40:45.230 --> 00:40:48.140
  • HE SAYS, I HAVE NEVER SEEN, IN ALL OF MY MINISTRY, THE
  • 00:40:48.160 --> 00:40:53.120
  • MANIFESTATION OF THE GRACE OF GOD, WHEN HE SAW ALL OF
  • 00:40:53.140 --> 00:40:57.100
  • THESE GIRLS HAD COME OUT OF PROSTITUTION.
  • 00:40:57.120 --> 00:41:01.250
  • AND I WOULD SAY THAT THAT'S -- EVERYBODY HAS
  • 00:41:01.270 --> 00:41:03.240
  • THEIR POWER SPOTS.
  • 00:41:03.260 --> 00:41:05.190
  • THAT'S WHY WE CAN ALL PARTNER TOGETHER.
  • 00:41:05.210 --> 00:41:07.190
  • OUR POWER SPOT IS THE INNER CITIES, AND I HAVEN'T GOTTEN
  • 00:41:07.210 --> 00:41:10.200
  • AWAY FROM IT, EVEN THOUGH SOMETIMES THE ENEMY WANTS TO
  • 00:41:10.220 --> 00:41:14.030
  • TAKE YOU AND SIDE TRACK YOU, BUT I RECOGNIZE.
  • 00:41:14.050 --> 00:41:17.290
  • THAT'S WHY WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO BE 50 YEARS, A
  • 00:41:18.010 --> 00:41:20.230
  • CELEBRATION OF 50 YEARS OF MINISTRY, BECAUSE I
  • 00:41:20.250 --> 00:41:25.020
  • RECOGNIZE THE CALLING THAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO ME.
  • 00:41:25.040 --> 00:41:26.260
  • THERE IS AN ANOINTING, AND THAT'S MY POWER SPOT.
  • 00:41:26.280 --> 00:41:29.280
  • AS LONG AS I STAY IN MY POWER SPOT,
  • 00:41:30.000 --> 00:41:31.150
  • I'M ABLE TO BE EFFECTIVE.
  • 00:41:31.170 --> 00:41:33.180
  • - I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:41:33.200 --> 00:41:36.000
  • - THE IDEA OF YOU'VE BEEN THERE, YOU'VE DONE IT,
  • 00:41:36.020 --> 00:41:40.220
  • YOU'RE STILL HERE, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO QUIT.
  • 00:41:40.240 --> 00:41:43.040
  • - NO. - YOU'RE GOING KEEP GOING.
  • 00:41:43.060 --> 00:41:45.040
  • - NO, SHE GAVE ME A PROPHECY THAT I RECEIVE
  • 00:41:45.060 --> 00:41:47.010
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:41:47.030 --> 00:41:49.030
  • - THE WORD OF THE LORD [GIGGLING].
  • 00:41:49.050 --> 00:41:51.060
  • - AND WE'RE ALL RECEIVING THAT AT SOME POINT.
  • 00:41:51.080 --> 00:41:53.120
  • JUST TAKE SOME OF THE EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:41:53.140 --> 00:41:58.010
  • THERE COULD BE EVERYONE FROM SOMEBODY WANTING TO
  • 00:41:58.030 --> 00:41:59.220
  • KICK AN ADDICTION TO --
  • 00:41:59.240 --> 00:42:01.170
  • - QUITTING.
  • 00:42:01.190 --> 00:42:03.110
  • - WE'RE IN HALF THE PRISONS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
  • 00:42:03.130 --> 00:42:06.040
  • THIS BROADCAST IS, AND YOU'RE RELATING TO EVERYONE.
  • 00:42:06.060 --> 00:42:10.080
  • IN ONE SENSE, YOU'RE AN EXECUTIVE THAT HAS BUILT
  • 00:42:10.100 --> 00:42:15.080
  • THIS HUGE COMPANY.
  • 00:42:15.100 --> 00:42:17.100
  • I MEAN, THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO LOOK AT THE LIFE OF SONNY
  • 00:42:17.120 --> 00:42:23.000
  • AND JULIE ARGUINZONI, BUT CORE OF WHO YOU ARE
  • 00:42:23.020 --> 00:42:26.050
  • AS A MINISTER.
  • 00:42:26.070 --> 00:42:27.200
  • JUST LOVE ON THE PEOPLE, IF YOU WOULD, A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:42:27.220 --> 00:42:29.140
  • - I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT GOD WORKS MIRACLES,
  • 00:42:29.160 --> 00:42:34.150
  • AND WHENEVER GOD WANTS YOU TO DO SOMETHING, HE PREPARES
  • 00:42:34.170 --> 00:42:38.180
  • YOU FOR IT, LIKE I WAS MENTIONING ABOUT THE
  • 00:42:38.200 --> 00:42:40.190
  • DIFFERENT TRIALS AND ALL OF THESE THINGS THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:42:40.210 --> 00:42:44.030
  • GONE THROUGH, AND THAT'S BRINGING GROWTH TO OUR LIVES.
  • 00:42:44.050 --> 00:42:47.090
  • BUT WHEN I LOOK BACK AT MY LIFE, MY EDUCATION, BESIDES
  • 00:42:47.110 --> 00:42:52.100
  • BIBLE SCHOOL, HAS ONLY BEEN AN 8TH GRADE EDUCATION.
  • 00:42:52.120 --> 00:42:56.210
  • I WENT TO SCHOOL, AND AT THE 8TH GRADE, I DROPPED OUT OF
  • 00:42:56.230 --> 00:43:02.020
  • SCHOOL, AND THAT'S WHEN I STARTED GETTING ALL MESSED
  • 00:43:02.040 --> 00:43:04.290
  • UP WITH THE DRUGS AND ALL OF THAT.
  • 00:43:05.010 --> 00:43:07.280
  • I WOULD NEVER THINK, EVEN IMAGINE, THAT ONE DAY WE
  • 00:43:08.000 --> 00:43:11.270
  • WOULD HAVE A GLOBAL ORGANIZATION
  • 00:43:11.290 --> 00:43:15.030
  • LIKE WE NOW HAVE. GOD IS ABLE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:43:15.050 --> 00:43:18.200
  • THAT'S WHY I LOVE THAT SCRIPTURE, "HE'S TAKEN THE
  • 00:43:18.220 --> 00:43:20.270
  • FOOLISH THINGS OF THE WORLD TO CONFOUND THE WISE."
  • 00:43:20.290 --> 00:43:24.230
  • NOW, THERE'S A LOT INVOLVED IN WHAT
  • 00:43:24.250 --> 00:43:26.100
  • WE'RE DOING NOW.
  • 00:43:26.120 --> 00:43:28.140
  • GOD HAS A WAY OF GIVING YOU AND GROWING YOUR CAPACITY TO
  • 00:43:28.160 --> 00:43:35.230
  • DO WHAT HE WANTS YOU TO DO IF YOU'RE OPEN TO IT.
  • 00:43:35.250 --> 00:43:39.290
  • WHATEVER GOD IS DOING IN YOUR LIFE, OR WHEREVER YOU
  • 00:43:40.010 --> 00:43:42.230
  • MAY BE AND WHATEVER SITUATION -- YOU MAY BE
  • 00:43:42.250 --> 00:43:45.170
  • RUNNING A COMPANY OR WHATEVER, AND THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:43:45.190 --> 00:43:48.030
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO DO, THEN GOD IS ABLE TO GROW YOUR
  • 00:43:48.050 --> 00:43:52.130
  • CAPACITY TO BE ABLE TO DO WHAT HE WANTS YOU TO DO.
  • 00:43:52.150 --> 00:43:55.260
  • I DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ADMINISTRATION.
  • 00:43:55.280 --> 00:43:59.240
  • THERE'S A LOT INVOLVED WHEN YOU'RE DEALING WITH A GLOBAL
  • 00:43:59.260 --> 00:44:04.170
  • MINISTRY AND A GLOBAL ORGANIZATION.
  • 00:44:04.190 --> 00:44:07.060
  • THERE'S A LOT INVOLVED, AS FAR AS ORGANIZATION, AS FAR
  • 00:44:07.080 --> 00:44:10.040
  • AS MANAGEMENT, ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT THINGS
  • 00:44:10.060 --> 00:44:12.130
  • THAT I DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 00:44:12.150 --> 00:44:14.090
  • BUT ALL I KNEW WAS THAT GOD WAS TAKING ME ONE STEP
  • 00:44:14.110 --> 00:44:17.160
  • AT A TIME, AND I WAS OPEN FOR GROWTH.
  • 00:44:17.180 --> 00:44:20.290
  • I WAS OPEN FOR GOD TO GROW MY CAPACITY.
  • 00:44:21.010 --> 00:44:24.040
  • ONE THING I FOUND OUT IS THAT EVERYBODY
  • 00:44:24.060 --> 00:44:26.090
  • HAS DIFFERENT GIFTINGS.
  • 00:44:26.110 --> 00:44:28.080
  • EVERYBODY HAS DIFFERENT GIFTINGS, AND ALL OF THE
  • 00:44:28.100 --> 00:44:31.100
  • SUDDEN, GOD BEGAN TO BRING TO ME THE PEOPLE THAT WE
  • 00:44:31.120 --> 00:44:33.200
  • NEEDED TO BE ABLE TO TAKE US TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
  • 00:44:33.220 --> 00:44:38.250
  • GOD WAS ABLE TO DO THAT, GIVE ME THE
  • 00:44:38.270 --> 00:44:41.180
  • PEOPLE THAT I NEED.
  • 00:44:41.200 --> 00:44:43.090
  • AND AT THE SAME TIME, I WAS OPEN FOR WHATEVER WE NEEDED,
  • 00:44:43.110 --> 00:44:47.230
  • AND I WAS OPEN FOR WHATEVER STEPS WE NEEDED TO TAKE TO
  • 00:44:47.250 --> 00:44:51.160
  • TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL, AND THERE WAS
  • 00:44:51.180 --> 00:44:54.020
  • A GROWING PROCESS. NOW MY CAPACITY HAS GROWN.
  • 00:44:54.040 --> 00:44:56.270
  • FIRST, MY CAPACITY WAS ONLY FOR A LITTLE CHURCH, AND
  • 00:44:56.290 --> 00:45:00.070
  • THEN MY CAPACITY WAS FOR JUST A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT
  • 00:45:00.090 --> 00:45:03.190
  • CHURCHES, BUT NOW WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:45:03.210 --> 00:45:08.050
  • PART OF OUR ORGANIZATION.
  • 00:45:08.070 --> 00:45:10.170
  • THAT'S HOW FAR GOD HAS GROWN OUR CAPACITY.
  • 00:45:10.190 --> 00:45:14.000
  • SO IF GOD IS -- I'M A SIMPLE PERSON, MAN.
  • 00:45:14.020 --> 00:45:17.150
  • I'M JUST A SIMPLE MAN.
  • 00:45:17.170 --> 00:45:19.230
  • I COME OVER HERE, AND I WAS NERVOUS BECAUSE I DIDN'T
  • 00:45:19.250 --> 00:45:23.000
  • KNOW WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO ASK ME, SEE?
  • 00:45:23.020 --> 00:45:26.120
  • AND I DIDN'T KNOW IF I HAD ALL THE ANSWERS, BUT I'M
  • 00:45:26.140 --> 00:45:29.000
  • SITTING HERE, AND I'M FEELING COMFORTABLE.
  • 00:45:29.020 --> 00:45:32.030
  • I'M FEELING REAL COMFORTABLE BECAUSE THE THINGS THAT
  • 00:45:32.050 --> 00:45:37.120
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS THINGS ABOUT WHAT GOD HAS
  • 00:45:37.140 --> 00:45:40.220
  • DONE NOT ONLY IN OUR LIVES, BUT WHAT HE'S ABLE TO DO IN
  • 00:45:40.240 --> 00:45:43.240
  • YOUR LIFE, AS WELL.
  • 00:45:43.260 --> 00:45:45.290
  • I BELIEVE THERE ARE PEOPLE, JULIE, THAT ARE ABLE TO
  • 00:45:46.010 --> 00:45:48.160
  • RELATE TO WHAT WE HAVE GONE THROUGH.
  • 00:45:48.180 --> 00:45:50.190
  • THERE ARE MANY OF YOU THAT, RIGHT NOW, YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:45:50.210 --> 00:45:53.280
  • THROUGH DIFFERENT SITUATIONS.
  • 00:45:54.000 --> 00:45:55.180
  • YOU FEEL LIKE I HAVE FELT, THAT YOU WANT TO QUIT, AND
  • 00:45:55.200 --> 00:45:58.000
  • YOU WANT TO GIVE UP, BUT IF GOD HAS CALLED YOU, IF GOD
  • 00:45:58.020 --> 00:46:02.020
  • IS LEADING YOU IN THAT DIRECTION, IT DOESN'T HAVE
  • 00:46:02.040 --> 00:46:04.210
  • TO BE MINISTRY, BUT IT COULD BE ANYTHING THAT HE MAY BE
  • 00:46:04.230 --> 00:46:09.070
  • LEADING YOU IN; ANY ORGANIZATION OR WHATEVER IT
  • 00:46:09.090 --> 00:46:11.230
  • MAY BE, BUSINESS THAT YOU MAY HAVE.
  • 00:46:11.250 --> 00:46:14.260
  • IF THIS IS WHERE GOD HAS PUT YOU, THEN HE'S GIVING YOU
  • 00:46:14.280 --> 00:46:18.170
  • THE POWER TO BE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH WHATEVER YOU
  • 00:46:18.190 --> 00:46:21.240
  • WANTS YOU TO DO.
  • 00:46:21.260 --> 00:46:23.260
  • HE'LL GIVE YOU THE SKILLS, AND HE WILL LEAD YOU TO BE
  • 00:46:23.280 --> 00:46:26.100
  • ABLE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:46:26.120 --> 00:46:28.080
  • SO IF HE DID IT FOR ME, HE CAN DO FOR YOU.
  • 00:46:28.100 --> 00:46:30.270
  • ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS BEGIN TO PUT YOUR TRUST IN GOD.
  • 00:46:30.290 --> 00:46:33.260
  • PUT HIM FIRST, PUT HIM FIRST.
  • 00:46:33.280 --> 00:46:37.240
  • SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND ALL
  • 00:46:37.260 --> 00:46:40.000
  • THINGS WILL COME TOGETHER. THAT'S WHAT WE NEED TO DO.
  • 00:46:40.020 --> 00:46:44.050
  • AND THEN FROM THERE, JUST FOLLOW HIM, AND YOU WILL SEE
  • 00:46:44.070 --> 00:46:46.110
  • THE GREAT THINGS THAT GOD WILL DO WITHIN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:46:46.130 --> 00:46:48.190
  • - PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:46:48.210 --> 00:46:50.090
  • - I WANT US TO HAVE A PRAYER RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:46:50.110 --> 00:46:52.000
  • LORD JESUS, RIGHT NOW YOU KNOW EVERY PERSON
  • 00:46:52.020 --> 00:46:55.280
  • THAT WE'RE SPEAKING TO.
  • 00:46:56.000 --> 00:46:58.180
  • I KNOW THAT NOT EVERYBODY'S THE SAME, AND THERE ARE MANY
  • 00:46:58.200 --> 00:47:01.100
  • PEOPLE THAT HAVE NEVER USED DRUGS AND PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:47:01.120 --> 00:47:05.020
  • NOT PART OF THE LIFE THAT WE LIVE, AS FAR AS THE INNER
  • 00:47:05.040 --> 00:47:08.080
  • CITY, BUT YOU HAVE A PURPOSE FOR THEM, AND YOU HAVE A
  • 00:47:08.100 --> 00:47:11.190
  • PLAN FOR THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:47:11.210 --> 00:47:14.040
  • I PRAY THAT RIGHT NOW THEY WILL BE OPEN.
  • 00:47:14.060 --> 00:47:17.070
  • OPEN UP THEIR MINDS, AND OPEN UP THEIR HEARTS SO THAT
  • 00:47:17.090 --> 00:47:20.040
  • THEY WILL BE ABLE TO ABLE TO FOLLOW THAT DIVINE PLAN THAT
  • 00:47:20.060 --> 00:47:22.240
  • YOU HAVE FOR THEM.
  • 00:47:22.260 --> 00:47:24.240
  • LORD, YOU JUST PRAY THAT THEY WILL BE ABLE
  • 00:47:24.260 --> 00:47:27.040
  • TO WITNESS TO OTHERS.
  • 00:47:27.060 --> 00:47:29.040
  • I PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO USE THEM TO REACH MANY,
  • 00:47:29.060 --> 00:47:31.070
  • MANY MORE PEOPLE THAT ARE IN NEED.
  • 00:47:31.090 --> 00:47:33.130
  • IN THE NAME OF JESUS, WE BELIEVE YOU FOR IT RIGHT
  • 00:47:33.150 --> 00:47:36.270
  • NOW, IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:47:36.290 --> 00:47:39.170
  • - IT FEELS LIKE THE TAKE AWAY FROM THIS
  • 00:47:39.190 --> 00:47:41.280
  • TIME TOGETHER, GUYS, IS DON'T QUIT. DON'T QUIT,
  • 00:47:42.000 --> 00:47:47.030
  • WHATEVER GOD'S CALLED YOU TO DO.
  • 00:47:47.050 --> 00:47:50.140
  • THAT SEEMS TO BE WHAT THE LORD WANTED PEOPLE
  • 00:47:50.160 --> 00:47:54.130
  • TO HEAR TODAY.
  • 00:47:54.150 --> 00:47:56.070
  • - MAYBE YOUR BREAKTHROUGH IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER.
  • 00:47:56.090 --> 00:47:58.090
  • - DON'T QUIT. AND THE IDEA THAT SOMEBODY THAT'S BEEN IN
  • 00:47:58.110 --> 00:48:03.160
  • MINISTRY 50 YEARS THAT SAW PANCAKE MIX EXPAND SO THAT
  • 00:48:03.180 --> 00:48:11.110
  • YOU COULD FEED THE PEOPLE -- BY THE WAY,
  • 00:48:11.130 --> 00:48:13.250
  • WERE THEY GOOD PANCAKES?
  • 00:48:13.270 --> 00:48:15.160
  • YOU'D THINK IF THE LORD MOUTHED THAT --
  • 00:48:15.180 --> 00:48:17.020
  • - I DIDN'T EAT THEM.
  • 00:48:17.040 --> 00:48:18.200
  • - YOU DIDN'T EAT THE BLESSED PANCAKES?
  • 00:48:18.220 --> 00:48:20.100
  • - WHO WAS BRINGING PANCAKES AT 6 O'CLOCK AT NIGHT?
  • 00:48:20.120 --> 00:48:23.110
  • - CAN I ASK YOU A QUESTION?
  • 00:48:23.130 --> 00:48:26.050
  • IN YOUR OPINION --
  • 00:48:26.070 --> 00:48:27.260
  • - YOU MISSED IT, BUDDY.
  • 00:48:27.280 --> 00:48:30.100
  • - -- DOING STREET MINISTRY FOR ALL THESE YEARS --
  • 00:48:30.120 --> 00:48:32.090
  • - BY THE WAY, THOSE WERE ANOINTED PANCAKES.
  • 00:48:32.110 --> 00:48:33.290
  • - YEAH, SERIOUSLY.
  • 00:48:34.010 --> 00:48:36.030
  • - SEEMS LIKE YOU WOULD HAVE CONSUMED ONE OF THOSE.
  • 00:48:36.050 --> 00:48:37.270
  • HOW IMPORTANT IS IT FOR US TO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS
  • 00:48:37.290 --> 00:48:41.030
  • AND WITNESS TO PEOPLE? HOW IMPORTANT IS THAT?
  • 00:48:41.050 --> 00:48:44.000
  • - I THINK IT'S VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE WE
  • 00:48:44.020 --> 00:48:46.070
  • HAVE A TESTIMONY.
  • 00:48:46.090 --> 00:48:49.090
  • THOSE OF US THAT HAVE EXPERIENCED JESUS, WE HAVE A
  • 00:48:49.110 --> 00:48:52.290
  • TESTIMONY, AND SOMETIMES WE LOOK AT PEOPLE OUT THERE,
  • 00:48:53.010 --> 00:48:55.230
  • AND YOU SEE THE OUTSIDE, THAT THEY'RE
  • 00:48:55.250 --> 00:48:57.200
  • HARD, BUT INSIDE --
  • 00:48:57.220 --> 00:49:00.040
  • - THEY'RE NOT.
  • 00:49:00.060 --> 00:49:01.270
  • - INSIDE, THOSE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE ACTUALLY HURTING,
  • 00:49:01.290 --> 00:49:03.210
  • PEOPLE THAT ARE HURTING.
  • 00:49:03.230 --> 00:49:05.130
  • AND THIS IS WHY, BY YOUR TESTIMONY, TESTIFYING TO
  • 00:49:05.150 --> 00:49:08.060
  • THEM, WITNESSING TO THEM, TELLING THEM AND BEING LED
  • 00:49:08.080 --> 00:49:11.150
  • OF THE LORD -- MANY TIMES GOD LEADS US TO CERTAIN
  • 00:49:11.170 --> 00:49:14.050
  • PEOPLE, WE HAVE TO BE SENSITIVE ENOUGH TO BE
  • 00:49:14.070 --> 00:49:17.070
  • OBEDIENT AND TO BE ABLE TO WITNESS TO THEM ABOUT WHAT
  • 00:49:17.090 --> 00:49:20.010
  • HAS HAPPENED IN OUR LIVES. WE ALL HAVE A TESTIMONY.
  • 00:49:20.030 --> 00:49:23.110
  • - INTERESTING QUESTION THAT'S SUPER IMPORTANT
  • 00:49:23.130 --> 00:49:27.010
  • BECAUSE IF IT WASN'T FOR A TESTIMONY, YOU WOULDN'T
  • 00:49:27.030 --> 00:49:29.100
  • HAVE BEEN CONVERTED.
  • 00:49:29.120 --> 00:49:31.140
  • YOU HAD TO SEE IT TO BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:49:31.160 --> 00:49:33.080
  • - YEAH, I WOULDN'T BE HERE. I WOULDN'T BE HERE.
  • 00:49:33.100 --> 00:49:35.100
  • - YOU CERTAINLY WOULDN'T HAVE HAD THE EXPERIENCE
  • 00:49:35.120 --> 00:49:37.180
  • YOU HAD HAD --
  • 00:49:37.200 --> 00:49:39.110
  • - AND THAT'S JUST TELLING YOUR STORY ABOUT
  • 00:49:39.130 --> 00:49:40.270
  • WHAT JESUS HAS DONE.
  • 00:49:40.290 --> 00:49:42.070
  • - EVERYBODY CAN DO THAT.
  • 00:49:42.090 --> 00:49:43.250
