  • You are president
  • 00:00:26.160 --> 00:00:27.200
  • We were talking before we
  • 00:00:32.090 --> 00:00:35.090
  • started today and I want you
  • 00:00:35.270 --> 00:00:38.270
  • to know that you're in the
  • 00:00:38.270 --> 00:00:41.080
  • original studio.
  • 00:00:41.080 --> 00:00:43.050
  • Now, look around.
  • 00:00:43.050 --> 00:00:43.270
  • It looks a little different
  • 00:00:43.270 --> 00:00:44.210
  • nowadays, you know?
  • 00:00:44.210 --> 00:00:45.200
  • - Franklin Graham: A little
  • 00:00:45.200 --> 00:00:46.100
  • different.
  • 00:00:46.100 --> 00:00:47.070
  • - Matt: Real different.
  • 00:00:47.070 --> 00:00:48.160
  • But this studio, and I love
  • 00:00:48.160 --> 00:00:50.270
  • that big wide shot, was the
  • 00:00:50.290 --> 00:00:53.290
  • original studio that the first
  • 00:00:53.290 --> 00:00:56.270
  • time my parents, Paul and Jan
  • 00:00:56.270 --> 00:00:58.220
  • Crouch, invited you to sit with
  • 00:00:58.220 --> 00:01:01.100
  • them and share what you've
  • 00:01:01.100 --> 00:01:02.190
  • been doing,
  • 00:01:02.190 --> 00:01:03.090
  • you would've walked in
  • 00:01:03.090 --> 00:01:04.120
  • this studio in what year?
  • 00:01:04.120 --> 00:01:06.060
  • - Franklin: Probably about in
  • 00:01:06.060 --> 00:01:07.100
  • - Matt: Okay, so how did you
  • 00:01:10.160 --> 00:01:13.070
  • and my parents meet?
  • 00:01:13.070 --> 00:01:14.260
  • - Franklin: Matt, we were
  • 00:01:14.260 --> 00:01:16.020
  • working, Samaritan's Purse, we
  • 00:01:16.020 --> 00:01:17.270
  • were very small, just a handful
  • 00:01:17.270 --> 00:01:20.010
  • refugees that were coming out
  • 00:01:21.170 --> 00:01:24.170
  • of Vietnam going into Cambodia
  • 00:01:24.170 --> 00:01:27.120
  • at that time.
  • 00:01:27.120 --> 00:01:28.220
  • And your parents heard that I
  • 00:01:28.220 --> 00:01:31.040
  • was working there, and they
  • 00:01:31.040 --> 00:01:32.200
  • invited me to come by
  • 00:01:32.200 --> 00:01:35.000
  • and meet with them.
  • 00:01:35.000 --> 00:01:36.070
  • I flew into Los Angeles and
  • 00:01:36.070 --> 00:01:38.130
  • took a car down here.
  • 00:01:38.130 --> 00:01:40.010
  • And they had interviewed me on
  • 00:01:40.010 --> 00:01:42.120
  • their program.
  • 00:01:42.120 --> 00:01:43.120
  • But it started somethin', Matt.
  • 00:01:43.120 --> 00:01:44.230
  • After that, your mom and dad
  • 00:01:44.230 --> 00:01:46.070
  • invited me, I think, every
  • 00:01:46.070 --> 00:01:48.160
  • year, and sometimes multiple
  • 00:01:48.160 --> 00:01:50.020
  • times a year.
  • 00:01:50.020 --> 00:01:51.090
  • And they were always wanting to
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:52.200
  • know, "Franklin, what's going
  • 00:01:52.200 --> 00:01:53.200
  • on?
  • 00:01:53.200 --> 00:01:54.100
  • Where are you working?"
  • 00:01:54.100 --> 00:01:55.150
  • And I didn't have video at that
  • 00:01:55.150 --> 00:01:57.020
  • time.
  • 00:01:57.020 --> 00:01:57.280
  • We just had still pictures.
  • 00:01:57.280 --> 00:01:59.150
  • You know, I'd blow 'em up to be
  • 00:01:59.150 --> 00:02:00.270
  • so big, and I'd hold 'em up on
  • 00:02:00.270 --> 00:02:03.010
  • your program, and show it to
  • 00:02:03.010 --> 00:02:04.170
  • your mom and dad.
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:05.160
  • And they were always so
  • 00:02:05.160 --> 00:02:06.280
  • gracious and kind.
  • 00:02:06.280 --> 00:02:08.060
  • And Samaritan's Purse was
  • 00:02:08.060 --> 00:02:09.140
  • small.
  • 00:02:09.140 --> 00:02:11.080
  • When Bob Pierce, who started
  • 00:02:11.080 --> 00:02:12.160
  • Samaritan's Purse, when he
  • 00:02:12.160 --> 00:02:13.120
  • died, he had, I think, it was
  • 00:02:13.120 --> 00:02:15.080
  • three secretaries.
  • 00:02:15.080 --> 00:02:16.210
  • And when the board asked me to
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:18.020
  • take it over, they quit.
  • 00:02:18.020 --> 00:02:19.290
  • So it was just me for a while.
  • 00:02:19.290 --> 00:02:22.170
  • And that's kind of a humbling
  • 00:02:22.170 --> 00:02:24.020
  • experience.
  • 00:02:24.020 --> 00:02:25.130
  • But God brought good people
  • 00:02:25.130 --> 00:02:26.170
  • over the years.
  • 00:02:26.170 --> 00:02:27.110
  • But he also brought people to
  • 00:02:27.110 --> 00:02:28.130
  • help, and your mom and dad were
  • 00:02:28.130 --> 00:02:30.080
  • one of those, well, they were
  • 00:02:32.140 --> 00:02:35.140
  • just friends that helped me.
  • 00:02:35.140 --> 00:02:38.050
  • And they encouraged me because
  • 00:02:38.050 --> 00:02:39.160
  • when I was small like that, for
  • 00:02:39.160 --> 00:02:42.030
  • your mom and dad to take an
  • 00:02:42.030 --> 00:02:42.260
  • interest in me meant a lot to
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:44.110
  • me.
  • 00:02:44.110 --> 00:02:45.040
  • - Matt: Okay, so 1980, 1990,
  • 00:02:45.040 --> 00:02:47.040
  • 2000, 2010, so we're talkin' 35
  • 00:02:47.230 --> 00:02:50.230
  • years ago.
  • 00:02:50.230 --> 00:02:52.050
  • So the tradition continues.
  • 00:02:52.050 --> 00:02:54.110
  • We're talking about Samaritan's
  • 00:02:54.110 --> 00:02:55.230
  • Purse today.
  • 00:02:55.230 --> 00:02:56.280
  • Operation Christmas Child, let
  • 00:02:56.280 --> 00:02:59.100
  • me set the stage.
  • 00:02:59.100 --> 00:03:00.220
  • When my kids went to Valley
  • 00:03:00.220 --> 00:03:02.090
  • Presbyterian School, when they
  • 00:03:02.090 --> 00:03:04.020
  • were little guys, we lived in
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:05.260
  • Los Angeles in the Hollywood
  • 00:03:05.260 --> 00:03:08.200
  • area.
  • 00:03:08.200 --> 00:03:09.250
  • And I mean, it was such a big
  • 00:03:09.250 --> 00:03:12.070
  • deal every year at their school
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:14.220
  • participated, what is it, and
  • 00:03:16.110 --> 00:03:19.110
  • how can they be involved this
  • 00:03:19.110 --> 00:03:20.170
  • year?
  • 00:03:20.170 --> 00:03:21.170
  • - Franklin: Matt, it started
  • 00:03:21.170 --> 00:03:22.250
  • during the war in Bosnia 25
  • 00:03:23.010 --> 00:03:26.010
  • years ago.
  • 00:03:26.010 --> 00:03:27.290
  • A man from England called me
  • 00:03:27.290 --> 00:03:29.290
  • and he said, "Would you be
  • 00:03:29.290 --> 00:03:31.230
  • willing to help us take
  • 00:03:31.230 --> 00:03:33.000
  • to."
  • 00:03:33.270 --> 00:03:36.270
  • And he said, "We wanna collect
  • 00:03:36.270 --> 00:03:39.030
  • 'em in December."
  • 00:03:39.030 --> 00:03:40.000
  • This was in July.
  • 00:03:40.000 --> 00:03:41.120
  • I said, "Yeah, we'd be glad to
  • 00:03:41.120 --> 00:03:42.040
  • do it."
  • 00:03:42.040 --> 00:03:43.020
  • Well, you know, in July you
  • 00:03:43.020 --> 00:03:44.180
  • don't think much about
  • 00:03:44.180 --> 00:03:45.120
  • Christmas.
  • 00:03:45.120 --> 00:03:46.110
  • Well, December came and my
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:49.150
  • secretary walks in the office
  • 00:03:49.150 --> 00:03:50.170
  • and she had this look on her
  • 00:03:50.170 --> 00:03:51.240
  • face like, "You're in trouble."
  • 00:03:51.240 --> 00:03:53.040
  • I said, "What'd I do?"
  • 00:03:53.040 --> 00:03:54.140
  • She said, "Remember that guy
  • 00:03:54.140 --> 00:03:55.170
  • from England?"
  • 00:03:55.170 --> 00:03:56.060
  • "What guy from England?"
  • 00:03:56.060 --> 00:03:57.040
  • "That guy you promised
  • 00:03:57.040 --> 00:03:57.220
  • shoeboxes to."
  • 00:03:57.220 --> 00:03:58.250
  • "Oh, yeah."
  • 00:03:58.250 --> 00:04:00.240
  • "Well, he's on the phone."
  • 00:04:00.240 --> 00:04:02.140
  • He said, "How many boxes have
  • 00:04:02.140 --> 00:04:03.230
  • you collected?"
  • 00:04:03.230 --> 00:04:04.150
  • I said, "Call me next week.
  • 00:04:04.150 --> 00:04:05.060
  • We're still workin' on it."
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:06.190
  • And I got one church, Matt, in
  • 00:04:06.190 --> 00:04:08.010
  • Charlotte, North Carolina, and
  • 00:04:08.010 --> 00:04:10.110
  • I gave a empty shoebox to the
  • 00:04:10.110 --> 00:04:12.030
  • pastor.
  • 00:04:12.030 --> 00:04:12.230
  • I said, "Could you just put
  • 00:04:12.230 --> 00:04:14.050
  • some toys?"
  • 00:04:14.050 --> 00:04:15.030
  • And we filled it up for him.
  • 00:04:15.030 --> 00:04:16.090
  • "But hold it up to your church,
  • 00:04:16.090 --> 00:04:17.130
  • unpack it, pack it back, and
  • 00:04:17.130 --> 00:04:19.280
  • ask people to bring next Sunday
  • 00:04:19.280 --> 00:04:21.090
  • shoeboxes, and we'll take 'em
  • 00:04:21.230 --> 00:04:24.230
  • to Bosnia."
  • 00:04:24.230 --> 00:04:26.140
  • And I thought if I could get
  • 00:04:26.140 --> 00:04:27.150
  • 1.000 boxes, that would be
  • 00:04:27.150 --> 00:04:28.280
  • huge.
  • 00:04:28.280 --> 00:04:30.010
  • Eleven thousand boxes that
  • 00:04:30.010 --> 00:04:31.180
  • first year out of that one
  • 00:04:31.180 --> 00:04:33.190
  • church.
  • 00:04:33.190 --> 00:04:34.280
  • And ever since then, God has
  • 00:04:34.280 --> 00:04:37.130
  • just taken it and he's blessed
  • 00:04:37.130 --> 00:04:38.190
  • it.
  • 00:04:38.190 --> 00:04:39.120
  • But Matt, the reason he's
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:41.090
  • blessed, the guy in England
  • 00:04:41.090 --> 00:04:42.020
  • backed out.
  • 00:04:42.020 --> 00:04:42.220
  • He said, "I can't do this
  • 00:04:42.220 --> 00:04:43.140
  • anymore."
  • 00:04:43.140 --> 00:04:44.200
  • So we took it, but we turned it
  • 00:04:44.200 --> 00:04:46.130
  • into an evangelism program.
  • 00:04:46.130 --> 00:04:48.020
  • It's, "How do we use these
  • 00:04:48.020 --> 00:04:49.210
  • shoeboxes to reach the children
  • 00:04:49.210 --> 00:04:52.040
  • of the world with God's love?"
  • 00:04:52.040 --> 00:04:54.040
  • And you know, when you give a
  • 00:04:54.040 --> 00:04:55.070
  • gift to a kid, well, first of
  • 00:04:55.070 --> 00:04:57.150
  • all, they're gonna listen to
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:04:58.090
  • what you have to say.
  • 00:04:58.090 --> 00:04:59.220
  • And we give them through
  • 00:04:59.220 --> 00:05:01.070
  • churches.
  • 00:05:01.070 --> 00:05:02.100
  • We work in 110 countries around
  • 00:05:02.100 --> 00:05:04.200
  • the world, and we use the
  • 00:05:04.200 --> 00:05:05.210
  • So this year we'll collect
  • 00:05:07.090 --> 00:05:10.090
  • somewhere about 13 million
  • 00:05:11.220 --> 00:05:14.220
  • boxes this year, and they'll go
  • 00:05:15.030 --> 00:05:18.030
  • to 110 countries.
  • 00:05:18.030 --> 00:05:19.290
  • But if you give a pastor, let's
  • 00:05:19.290 --> 00:05:21.160
  • say, in the Philippines, a box,
  • 00:05:21.160 --> 00:05:23.130
  • or say, his church gets 100
  • 00:05:23.130 --> 00:05:25.110
  • boxes or 200 boxes, then he's
  • 00:05:25.110 --> 00:05:27.240
  • instructed to invite kids off
  • 00:05:27.240 --> 00:05:29.180
  • the street to come to his
  • 00:05:29.180 --> 00:05:30.160
  • church, and they'll get a gift.
  • 00:05:30.160 --> 00:05:32.260
  • Well, the kids come.
  • 00:05:32.260 --> 00:05:35.020
  • They want the gift.
  • 00:05:35.020 --> 00:05:36.150
  • Well, before they get the gift,
  • 00:05:36.150 --> 00:05:38.090
  • the church has a little
  • 00:05:38.090 --> 00:05:40.000
  • program.
  • 00:05:40.000 --> 00:05:40.280
  • They'll give some food.
  • 00:05:40.280 --> 00:05:42.230
  • They have a little skit.
  • 00:05:42.230 --> 00:05:44.140
  • And they explain the meaning of
  • 00:05:44.140 --> 00:05:46.200
  • Christmas, that Jesus Christ is
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:48.040
  • God's Son.
  • 00:05:48.040 --> 00:05:49.090
  • We give an invitation.
  • 00:05:49.090 --> 00:05:50.220
  • thousands of children accept
  • 00:05:54.100 --> 00:05:55.240
  • Christ.
  • 00:05:55.240 --> 00:05:56.260
  • Then we offer a discipleship
  • 00:05:56.260 --> 00:05:58.110
  • program after that through the
  • 00:05:58.110 --> 00:05:59.250
  • churches that take the
  • 00:05:59.250 --> 00:06:01.250
  • shoeboxes.
  • 00:06:01.250 --> 00:06:02.290
  • It's a 12-week discipleship
  • 00:06:02.290 --> 00:06:04.270
  • program.
  • 00:06:04.270 --> 00:06:05.270
  • And it's a bird's-eye view of
  • 00:06:05.270 --> 00:06:08.090
  • the Bible.
  • 00:06:08.090 --> 00:06:09.000
  • We teach the kids from Genesis
  • 00:06:09.000 --> 00:06:10.030
  • through Revelation, just take
  • 00:06:10.030 --> 00:06:12.170
  • the highlights, and then they
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:14.180
  • have to memorize Scripture.
  • 00:06:14.180 --> 00:06:16.130
  • So Operation Christmas Child
  • 00:06:16.130 --> 00:06:17.230
  • is, it's evangelism and
  • 00:06:17.230 --> 00:06:19.050
  • discipleship.
  • 00:06:19.050 --> 00:06:20.130
  • - Matt: This is how you can
  • 00:06:20.130 --> 00:06:21.090
  • get involved.
  • 00:06:21.090 --> 00:06:22.030
  • It's Operation Christmas Child.
  • 00:06:22.030 --> 00:06:24.020
  • - male: The kids are playing,
  • 00:06:29.200 --> 00:06:32.200
  • are laughing, joyful.
  • 00:06:32.210 --> 00:06:35.210
  • - male: It's like the whole
  • 00:06:35.210 --> 00:06:36.180
  • world to them because for the
  • 00:06:36.180 --> 00:06:38.190
  • first time, they have received
  • 00:06:38.190 --> 00:06:40.070
  • this precious gift.
  • 00:06:40.070 --> 00:06:42.080
  • the box is not only the toys
  • 00:06:46.080 --> 00:06:49.080
  • loves them.
  • 00:06:51.030 --> 00:06:54.030
  • - Franklin: You've got an army
  • 00:06:54.030 --> 00:06:55.070
  • of volunteers that pack the
  • 00:06:55.070 --> 00:06:56.160
  • boxes.
  • 00:06:56.160 --> 00:06:57.180
  • They're helping OCC to take the
  • 00:06:57.180 --> 00:06:59.190
  • gospel, literally, to millions
  • 00:06:59.190 --> 00:07:01.020
  • of children.
  • 00:07:01.020 --> 00:07:02.020
  • - male: We are opening doors
  • 00:07:02.020 --> 00:07:03.080
  • ministry in their local
  • 00:07:07.090 --> 00:07:08.200
  • community.
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:11.050
  • - male: They receive a box,
  • 00:07:11.050 --> 00:07:11.270
  • and also an invitation to come
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:14.290
  • back and learn more about
  • 00:07:14.290 --> 00:07:16.210
  • Christ.
  • 00:07:16.210 --> 00:07:17.270
  • - Franklin: We just don't want
  • 00:07:17.270 --> 00:07:18.190
  • to just hand out a box and stop
  • 00:07:18.190 --> 00:07:20.210
  • there.
  • 00:07:20.210 --> 00:07:21.110
  • We want them to grow in their
  • 00:07:21.110 --> 00:07:23.000
  • faith.
  • 00:07:23.000 --> 00:07:24.100
  • - female: So it started with a
  • 00:07:24.100 --> 00:07:25.220
  • box, and it's ending with
  • 00:07:25.220 --> 00:07:28.030
  • communities and countries being
  • 00:07:28.030 --> 00:07:29.250
  • changed.
  • 00:07:29.250 --> 00:07:30.240
  • Let the sound so
  • 00:07:30.240 --> 00:07:31.150
  • full it cracks the sky.
  • 00:07:31.150 --> 00:07:34.110
  • Whoa oh oh,
  • 00:07:34.110 --> 00:07:35.060
  • we sing allelujah
  • 00:07:35.060 --> 00:07:37.140
  • Whoa oh oh, we sing amen.
  • 00:07:38.210 --> 00:07:41.210
  • Hear the sound of the saints
  • 00:07:41.210 --> 00:07:43.270
  • as we march on to Zion,
  • 00:07:43.270 --> 00:07:46.030
  • singing allelujah,
  • 00:07:46.030 --> 00:07:48.010
  • amen.
  • 00:07:48.010 --> 00:07:50.120
  • - female: It never ceases to
  • 00:07:50.120 --> 00:07:51.220
  • amaze me how a simple box can
  • 00:07:51.220 --> 00:07:54.000
  • change the world for a child.
  • 00:07:54.000 --> 00:07:56.070
  • Allelujah, amen
  • 00:07:56.070 --> 00:07:58.070
  • - male: Thousands will be
  • 00:07:58.070 --> 00:07:59.050
  • impacted but just one gift.
  • 00:07:59.050 --> 00:08:01.250
  • Allelujah, amen,
  • 00:08:01.250 --> 00:08:04.230
  • now, Franklin, about Liberia.
  • 00:08:12.040 --> 00:08:15.040
  • But I wanna circle back just
  • 00:08:15.040 --> 00:08:16.070
  • for those that just tuned in.
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:18.250
  • You were here back in 1979, and
  • 00:08:21.100 --> 00:08:24.100
  • your first experience on TBN in
  • 00:08:26.000 --> 00:08:29.000
  • this studio that many years
  • 00:08:29.000 --> 00:08:30.160
  • ago, goodness, that's 30,
  • 00:08:30.160 --> 00:08:32.150
  • almost 38 years ago or so, what
  • 00:08:33.170 --> 00:08:36.170
  • would you have been talkin'
  • 00:08:36.170 --> 00:08:37.130
  • about?
  • 00:08:37.130 --> 00:08:38.030
  • What did Paul and Jan, they
  • 00:08:38.030 --> 00:08:39.290
  • were, or what were you--?
  • 00:08:39.290 --> 00:08:42.070
  • - Franklin: Talkin' about what
  • 00:08:42.070 --> 00:08:43.100
  • we're talkin' about now.
  • 00:08:43.100 --> 00:08:44.060
  • - Matt: Yeah, just some crisis
  • 00:08:44.060 --> 00:08:45.080
  • somewhere, yeah.
  • 00:08:45.080 --> 00:08:45.230
  • returned from Bangladesh, you
  • 00:08:47.200 --> 00:08:50.200
  • said, where that awful--
  • 00:08:50.200 --> 00:08:51.140
  • - Franklin: Yes, Bangladesh.
  • 00:08:51.140 --> 00:08:52.200
  • I went to see the results of
  • 00:08:52.200 --> 00:08:55.120
  • the tidal wave when it came
  • 00:08:55.120 --> 00:08:57.000
  • across the islands a few weeks
  • 00:08:57.000 --> 00:08:58.260
  • ago.
  • 00:08:58.260 --> 00:08:59.250
  • Some 30.000 people were killed.
  • 00:08:59.250 --> 00:09:01.220
  • And I'm constantly, Paul,
  • 00:09:01.220 --> 00:09:03.170
  • looking for places around the
  • 00:09:03.170 --> 00:09:04.260
  • world where there is a
  • 00:09:04.260 --> 00:09:06.090
  • disaster, where there's war,
  • 00:09:06.090 --> 00:09:07.210
  • like in Lebanon or in Southeast
  • 00:09:08.010 --> 00:09:11.010
  • Asia.
  • 00:09:11.010 --> 00:09:12.020
  • I'm looking for opportunities
  • 00:09:12.020 --> 00:09:13.060
  • to invest for the gospel.
  • 00:09:13.060 --> 00:09:15.260
  • I believe in working through
  • 00:09:15.260 --> 00:09:18.020
  • the church.
  • 00:09:18.020 --> 00:09:18.270
  • I believe in working through the
  • 00:09:18.270 --> 00:09:20.100
  • Christians, the nationals, or
  • 00:09:20.100 --> 00:09:22.120
  • the missionaries that are in a
  • 00:09:22.120 --> 00:09:23.060
  • country, to do relief work, but
  • 00:09:23.060 --> 00:09:25.150
  • let the church do it.
  • 00:09:25.150 --> 00:09:26.110
  • Give them the means.
  • 00:09:26.110 --> 00:09:27.040
  • Give them the finances.
  • 00:09:27.040 --> 00:09:29.000
  • So that when it's all said and
  • 00:09:29.000 --> 00:09:30.100
  • done, the church, or those
  • 00:09:30.100 --> 00:09:32.040
  • missionaries, have earned the
  • 00:09:32.040 --> 00:09:33.200
  • right to proclaim the gospel of
  • 00:09:33.200 --> 00:09:35.160
  • Jesus Christ.
  • 00:09:35.160 --> 00:09:36.150
  • I don't believe in going in and
  • 00:09:36.150 --> 00:09:37.150
  • raising my flag, the flag of my
  • 00:09:37.150 --> 00:09:39.140
  • organization.
  • 00:09:39.140 --> 00:09:40.210
  • But I believe in going in and
  • 00:09:40.210 --> 00:09:41.260
  • quietly giving to them, and
  • 00:09:41.260 --> 00:09:44.200
  • then letting them do it.
  • 00:09:44.200 --> 00:09:45.270
  • Now, we'll send experts in to
  • 00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:47.020
  • advise them, advise the church
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:49.120
  • on how to do a food
  • 00:09:49.120 --> 00:09:50.260
  • distribution, or on how to do a
  • 00:09:50.260 --> 00:09:52.250
  • medical clinic.
  • 00:09:52.250 --> 00:09:54.070
  • But yet, let them do it,
  • 00:09:54.070 --> 00:09:55.220
  • and then they can
  • 00:09:55.220 --> 00:09:57.070
  • I've been doin' that now
  • 00:09:57.280 --> 00:10:00.280
  • my entire adult life.
  • 00:10:00.280 --> 00:10:02.180
  • It's just takin' the wars,
  • 00:10:02.180 --> 00:10:04.070
  • takin' the famines, takin' the
  • 00:10:04.070 --> 00:10:05.190
  • diseases of this world, and
  • 00:10:05.190 --> 00:10:08.060
  • then trying to meet it in
  • 00:10:08.060 --> 00:10:09.270
  • Jesus' name.
  • 00:10:09.270 --> 00:10:11.000
  • I just was last week in
  • 00:10:11.000 --> 00:10:12.060
  • outside of Monrovia.
  • 00:10:17.020 --> 00:10:19.130
  • But as you may remember, 2
  • 00:10:19.130 --> 00:10:21.000
  • years ago, 2014, there was the
  • 00:10:21.200 --> 00:10:24.200
  • Ebola outbreak.
  • 00:10:24.200 --> 00:10:25.290
  • And we've been workin' in
  • 00:10:25.290 --> 00:10:27.120
  • Liberia since the war, the
  • 00:10:27.120 --> 00:10:28.160
  • civil war.
  • 00:10:28.160 --> 00:10:29.220
  • And we'd been workin' there,
  • 00:10:29.220 --> 00:10:31.040
  • been there about 10 years.
  • 00:10:31.040 --> 00:10:33.130
  • And when Ebola came, none of my
  • 00:10:34.030 --> 00:10:37.030
  • staff were there to fight
  • 00:10:37.030 --> 00:10:38.030
  • Ebola.
  • 00:10:38.030 --> 00:10:39.090
  • They were all there doing, we
  • 00:10:39.090 --> 00:10:40.130
  • were doing agricultural
  • 00:10:40.130 --> 00:10:41.210
  • projects.
  • 00:10:41.210 --> 00:10:42.140
  • We were working with widows.
  • 00:10:42.140 --> 00:10:43.220
  • We had all kinds of programs,
  • 00:10:43.220 --> 00:10:45.050
  • but not Ebola.
  • 00:10:45.050 --> 00:10:46.200
  • And there was no one in the
  • 00:10:46.200 --> 00:10:49.060
  • country that was willing to
  • 00:10:49.060 --> 00:10:50.280
  • take on Ebola.
  • 00:10:50.280 --> 00:10:52.050
  • And so we just stopped what we
  • 00:10:52.050 --> 00:10:53.210
  • did, and all of our staff
  • 00:10:53.210 --> 00:10:55.220
  • started focusing on Ebola.
  • 00:10:55.220 --> 00:10:57.130
  • chapel at ELWA and made it a,
  • 00:11:01.110 --> 00:11:04.110
  • what they call an ETU, an
  • 00:11:04.110 --> 00:11:06.200
  • Ebola Treatment Unit.
  • 00:11:06.200 --> 00:11:08.050
  • And really, a Ebola Treatment
  • 00:11:08.050 --> 00:11:09.260
  • Unit is you bring a person in
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:11.270
  • that has Ebola.
  • 00:11:11.270 --> 00:11:13.170
  • You have to be completely
  • 00:11:13.170 --> 00:11:15.130
  • covered in a Tyvek suit.
  • 00:11:15.130 --> 00:11:17.070
  • You actually have the Tyvek
  • 00:11:17.070 --> 00:11:18.210
  • suit on.
  • 00:11:18.210 --> 00:11:19.240
  • You have two layers of gloves.
  • 00:11:19.240 --> 00:11:21.080
  • You have duct tape.
  • 00:11:21.080 --> 00:11:22.100
  • There's no open area at all.
  • 00:11:22.100 --> 00:11:25.040
  • And you have a hood, and that's
  • 00:11:25.040 --> 00:11:26.230
  • duct taped down.
  • 00:11:26.230 --> 00:11:28.250
  • And you can only work in that
  • 00:11:28.250 --> 00:11:30.280
  • So you had to get back and get
  • 00:11:35.160 --> 00:11:37.080
  • out of that Tyvek suit after 20
  • 00:11:37.080 --> 00:11:38.190
  • minutes.
  • 00:11:38.190 --> 00:11:39.170
  • But a person comes in with
  • 00:11:39.170 --> 00:11:40.130
  • Ebola, all you can do is make
  • 00:11:40.130 --> 00:11:41.160
  • 'em comfortable.
  • 00:11:41.160 --> 00:11:42.190
  • Give 'em water, IV fluids.
  • 00:11:43.110 --> 00:11:46.110
  • But basically, all you could do
  • 00:11:46.260 --> 00:11:49.260
  • was keep 'em comfortable till
  • 00:11:49.260 --> 00:11:52.120
  • they died.
  • 00:11:52.120 --> 00:11:53.130
  • And one of our doctors, Dr.
  • 00:11:54.030 --> 00:11:57.030
  • Kent Brantly, I was in Alaska
  • 00:11:57.030 --> 00:11:59.210
  • working at a Samaritan's Purse
  • 00:11:59.210 --> 00:12:01.010
  • project there and I got a phone
  • 00:12:01.010 --> 00:12:02.030
  • call that Dr. Brantly had
  • 00:12:02.030 --> 00:12:04.130
  • Ebola.
  • 00:12:04.130 --> 00:12:05.160
  • And I knew it was a death
  • 00:12:05.160 --> 00:12:06.190
  • sentence.
  • 00:12:06.190 --> 00:12:07.260
  • There was no way we were gonna
  • 00:12:07.280 --> 00:12:10.280
  • be able to save his life.
  • 00:12:10.280 --> 00:12:12.240
  • And Matt, I didn't even know
  • 00:12:12.240 --> 00:12:14.240
  • how to pray.
  • 00:12:14.240 --> 00:12:17.110
  • I just, "God, why?"
  • 00:12:17.200 --> 00:12:20.200
  • A young doctor with a wife and
  • 00:12:20.200 --> 00:12:22.220
  • kids, and he's infected with
  • 00:12:22.220 --> 00:12:24.290
  • Ebola.
  • 00:12:24.290 --> 00:12:26.120
  • I wanted to get him back to
  • 00:12:26.120 --> 00:12:28.220
  • this country.
  • 00:12:28.220 --> 00:12:29.130
  • We had an insurance policy that
  • 00:12:29.130 --> 00:12:30.230
  • would go anywhere in the world
  • 00:12:30.230 --> 00:12:31.270
  • with a private plane to pick a
  • 00:12:31.270 --> 00:12:33.060
  • person up.
  • 00:12:33.060 --> 00:12:34.220
  • And they said, "Where's your
  • 00:12:34.220 --> 00:12:36.170
  • patient?"
  • 00:12:36.170 --> 00:12:37.090
  • "Well, he's in Liberia."
  • 00:12:37.090 --> 00:12:38.160
  • "What does he have?"
  • 00:12:38.160 --> 00:12:39.030
  • "He has Ebola."
  • 00:12:39.030 --> 00:12:40.050
  • "We're not gonna go to Liberia
  • 00:12:40.050 --> 00:12:41.260
  • to pick him up."
  • 00:12:41.260 --> 00:12:42.280
  • "But we have a policy."
  • 00:12:42.280 --> 00:12:44.290
  • "Sue us.
  • 00:12:44.290 --> 00:12:45.290
  • We're not goin'."
  • 00:12:45.290 --> 00:12:48.000
  • And we realized that there was
  • 00:12:48.000 --> 00:12:50.200
  • no way we were gonna be able to
  • 00:12:50.200 --> 00:12:52.050
  • get him back.
  • 00:12:52.050 --> 00:12:52.240
  • The airlines weren't gonna fly
  • 00:12:52.240 --> 00:12:53.220
  • him.
  • 00:12:53.220 --> 00:12:55.150
  • We were talkin' to one man at
  • 00:12:55.150 --> 00:12:57.020
  • the State Department.
  • 00:12:57.020 --> 00:12:58.220
  • And this guy said, "There is
  • 00:12:58.220 --> 00:13:01.080
  • one asset that the government
  • 00:13:01.080 --> 00:13:02.150
  • controls, a plane that can
  • 00:13:02.150 --> 00:13:04.210
  • carry a," I think they call it,
  • 00:13:04.210 --> 00:13:06.080
  • Who controls that asset?"
  • 00:13:10.150 --> 00:13:12.150
  • The guy said, "I do."
  • 00:13:12.150 --> 00:13:14.000
  • He said, "You have to pay for
  • 00:13:14.000 --> 00:13:15.120
  • it.
  • 00:13:15.120 --> 00:13:16.120
  • But if you pay for it, we'll
  • 00:13:16.120 --> 00:13:17.230
  • send our plane."
  • 00:13:17.230 --> 00:13:19.060
  • "And where do we send the
  • 00:13:19.060 --> 00:13:21.120
  • money?
  • 00:13:21.120 --> 00:13:22.020
  • We'll do it right now today."
  • 00:13:22.020 --> 00:13:23.080
  • And we did a wire transfer, and
  • 00:13:23.080 --> 00:13:25.010
  • they sent the plane to go get
  • 00:13:25.010 --> 00:13:26.260
  • him.
  • 00:13:26.260 --> 00:13:27.140
  • But it had pressurization
  • 00:13:27.140 --> 00:13:28.060
  • problems, had to turn around
  • 00:13:28.060 --> 00:13:29.070
  • and come back.
  • 00:13:29.070 --> 00:13:30.260
  • And he was, he's now been
  • 00:13:31.060 --> 00:13:34.060
  • infected for 10, or for 9 days,
  • 00:13:34.060 --> 00:13:35.270
  • excuse me, a week, and he's
  • 00:13:35.270 --> 00:13:37.260
  • getting weaker and weaker and
  • 00:13:37.260 --> 00:13:39.060
  • weaker.
  • 00:13:39.060 --> 00:13:40.110
  • And Matt, a guy, a person
  • 00:13:40.160 --> 00:13:43.160
  • showed up from the National
  • 00:13:43.160 --> 00:13:45.230
  • Institute of Health, said, "We
  • 00:13:45.230 --> 00:13:47.190
  • have a drug that's never been
  • 00:13:47.190 --> 00:13:50.180
  • tried on a human.
  • 00:13:50.180 --> 00:13:52.270
  • Do y'all want it?"
  • 00:13:52.270 --> 00:13:54.090
  • And we asked Dr. Brantly
  • 00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:56.130
  • if he would take it.
  • 00:13:56.130 --> 00:13:58.150
  • And he said, "Give it to a lady
  • 00:13:58.150 --> 00:14:00.070
  • by the name of Nancy Writebol,"
  • 00:14:00.070 --> 00:14:01.200
  • a nurse that had got Ebola.
  • 00:14:01.200 --> 00:14:03.150
  • So we had two people down with
  • 00:14:03.150 --> 00:14:04.110
  • Ebola.
  • 00:14:04.110 --> 00:14:05.180
  • And the plane was comin' to get
  • 00:14:05.180 --> 00:14:08.080
  • him, but it had to turn around
  • 00:14:08.080 --> 00:14:09.290
  • and go back.
  • 00:14:09.290 --> 00:14:11.170
  • And the plane was supposed to
  • 00:14:11.170 --> 00:14:12.210
  • be there Thursday of that week,
  • 00:14:12.210 --> 00:14:14.260
  • and that week, Matt, that
  • 00:14:14.260 --> 00:14:17.190
  • Thursday night he began to die.
  • 00:14:17.190 --> 00:14:19.250
  • And there was nothin' we could
  • 00:14:19.250 --> 00:14:21.060
  • do.
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:22.030
  • We were losin' him.
  • 00:14:22.030 --> 00:14:23.180
  • And we put one of those bags of
  • 00:14:23.180 --> 00:14:25.250
  • ZMapp, it's called.
  • 00:14:25.250 --> 00:14:27.060
  • A treatment was three bags.
  • 00:14:27.060 --> 00:14:29.020
  • You put another bag in, 9
  • 00:14:32.240 --> 00:14:35.240
  • hours, wait 2 days, put another
  • 00:14:35.240 --> 00:14:37.060
  • bag in.
  • 00:14:37.060 --> 00:14:38.170
  • Began to lose him.
  • 00:14:38.170 --> 00:14:40.070
  • And the doctors there made the
  • 00:14:40.070 --> 00:14:41.110
  • decision to put the ZMapp
  • 00:14:41.110 --> 00:14:43.030
  • that's never been put in a
  • 00:14:43.030 --> 00:14:44.020
  • human being before.
  • 00:14:44.020 --> 00:14:45.110
  • And when they put that into his
  • 00:14:45.110 --> 00:14:46.260
  • arm, within minutes he went
  • 00:14:50.070 --> 00:14:53.070
  • into convulsions and began to
  • 00:14:53.070 --> 00:14:55.150
  • violently shake in his bed.
  • 00:14:55.150 --> 00:14:58.050
  • And so our doctors were afraid,
  • 00:14:58.110 --> 00:15:01.130
  • what was happening to him?
  • 00:15:01.130 --> 00:15:02.230
  • So they called the
  • 00:15:02.230 --> 00:15:03.150
  • manufacturers, and they said,
  • 00:15:03.150 --> 00:15:05.060
  • "No, we saw this in primates.
  • 00:15:05.060 --> 00:15:07.120
  • It's the antibodies fighting
  • 00:15:07.120 --> 00:15:09.030
  • the Ebola.
  • 00:15:09.030 --> 00:15:10.040
  • up out of bed and went to the
  • 00:15:14.110 --> 00:15:17.110
  • bathroom.
  • 00:15:17.110 --> 00:15:18.040
  • He hadn't been out of bed in 3
  • 00:15:18.040 --> 00:15:18.260
  • days.
  • 00:15:18.260 --> 00:15:20.180
  • It was that dramatic.
  • 00:15:20.180 --> 00:15:21.260
  • It was that quick.
  • 00:15:21.260 --> 00:15:23.140
  • God showed up.
  • 00:15:23.140 --> 00:15:24.230
  • I mean, God showed up.
  • 00:15:24.230 --> 00:15:26.250
  • And the next day the plane
  • 00:15:26.250 --> 00:15:29.130
  • came, brought him back.
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:30.210
  • When they took him to Emory
  • 00:15:30.210 --> 00:15:31.150
  • University in Georgia, he
  • 00:15:31.150 --> 00:15:33.100
  • walked off the ambulance.
  • 00:15:33.100 --> 00:15:34.240
  • They didn't carry him in a
  • 00:15:34.240 --> 00:15:35.180
  • stretcher.
  • 00:15:35.180 --> 00:15:36.130
  • He walked off.
  • 00:15:36.130 --> 00:15:37.100
  • and it's called "Facing
  • 00:15:41.240 --> 00:15:44.240
  • Darkness."
  • 00:15:44.240 --> 00:15:45.280
  • And it's the story of how God
  • 00:15:46.100 --> 00:15:49.100
  • - male announcer: This was an
  • 00:15:54.120 --> 00:15:55.030
  • unfolding catastrophe.
  • 00:15:55.030 --> 00:15:56.100
  • - female: The numbers of new
  • 00:15:56.100 --> 00:15:57.010
  • cases and deaths are still
  • 00:15:57.010 --> 00:15:58.260
  • rising.
  • 00:15:58.260 --> 00:16:00.210
  • - Franklin: Ebola is the
  • 00:16:00.210 --> 00:16:02.260
  • world's most dangerous virus.
  • 00:16:02.260 --> 00:16:05.190
  • - male: The disease is out of
  • 00:16:05.190 --> 00:16:07.170
  • control in West Africa.
  • 00:16:07.170 --> 00:16:10.060
  • - male: Action was needed
  • 00:16:10.060 --> 00:16:10.250
  • family member that I lose,
  • 00:16:12.200 --> 00:16:15.200
  • to care for the dying, to care
  • 00:16:16.260 --> 00:16:19.260
  • for those that are suffering.
  • 00:16:19.260 --> 00:16:21.150
  • - female: We can't say we're
  • 00:16:21.150 --> 00:16:22.060
  • Samaritan's Purse and not help.
  • 00:16:22.060 --> 00:16:24.170
  • - male: I was confident that
  • 00:16:24.170 --> 00:16:25.100
  • what we were doing was the
  • 00:16:25.100 --> 00:16:26.200
  • right thing to do.
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:28.210
  • - male: I don't think I was
  • 00:16:28.210 --> 00:16:29.110
  • scared yet.
  • 00:16:29.110 --> 00:16:32.030
  • I should've been very scared.
  • 00:16:32.210 --> 00:16:35.210
  • - male: As the epidemic
  • 00:16:35.210 --> 00:16:38.020
  • escalated, we were just
  • 00:16:38.020 --> 00:16:39.220
  • desperately trying to stay one
  • 00:16:39.220 --> 00:16:41.120
  • step ahead.
  • 00:16:41.120 --> 00:16:42.250
  • - Franklin: My phone rang, and
  • 00:16:42.250 --> 00:16:43.260
  • Ken Isaacs said, "One of our
  • 00:16:43.260 --> 00:16:45.140
  • doctors, Kent Brantly,
  • 00:16:45.140 --> 00:16:47.200
  • has Ebola."
  • 00:16:47.200 --> 00:16:50.020
  • - male: David looked at me and
  • 00:16:50.020 --> 00:16:51.100
  • he said, "You too have Ebola."
  • 00:16:51.280 --> 00:16:54.280
  • - male: And then Barbara was
  • 00:16:54.280 --> 00:16:56.040
  • diagnosed with Ebola.
  • 00:16:56.040 --> 00:16:57.140
  • There was a high likelihood our
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:16:58.250
  • team members were gonna die.
  • 00:16:58.250 --> 00:17:00.250
  • - female: I don't know how to
  • 00:17:00.250 --> 00:17:01.160
  • describe how afraid we were.
  • 00:17:01.160 --> 00:17:03.160
  • - male: But he still went in,
  • 00:17:03.160 --> 00:17:05.010
  • hour after hour, taking care of
  • 00:17:05.010 --> 00:17:06.270
  • the Liberians, and taking care
  • 00:17:06.270 --> 00:17:08.070
  • of Ken and Nancy.
  • 00:17:08.070 --> 00:17:11.050
  • - Franklin: We're there to
  • 00:17:11.050 --> 00:17:11.250
  • save life.
  • 00:17:11.250 --> 00:17:12.280
  • We're there in your name.
  • 00:17:12.280 --> 00:17:14.250
  • that things were out of
  • 00:17:22.020 --> 00:17:23.020
  • control, we knew that God was
  • 00:17:23.020 --> 00:17:24.110
  • in control.
  • 00:17:24.110 --> 00:17:25.160
  • Oh, God,
  • 00:17:27.200 --> 00:17:30.200
  • you never leave my side.
  • 00:17:30.200 --> 00:17:33.200
  • - female: My greatest fear is
  • 00:17:33.200 --> 00:17:34.120
  • that I would have to raise my
  • 00:17:34.120 --> 00:17:35.100
  • kids alone.
  • 00:17:35.100 --> 00:17:36.200
  • - female: I felt broken.
  • 00:17:36.200 --> 00:17:37.290
  • - female: Who was gonna take
  • 00:17:37.290 --> 00:17:38.200
  • care of my children?
  • 00:17:38.200 --> 00:17:39.250
  • Oh, God--
  • 00:17:39.250 --> 00:17:41.140
  • - male: God puts you in places,
  • 00:17:41.140 --> 00:17:42.220
  • and supplies the strength
  • 00:17:42.220 --> 00:17:45.150
  • to deal with.
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:47.130
  • - male: If they're on our
  • 00:17:47.130 --> 00:17:49.110
  • team, they are our blood.
  • 00:17:49.110 --> 00:17:51.240
  • No matter what it took, "Let's
  • 00:17:51.240 --> 00:17:52.190
  • get them out."
  • 00:17:52.190 --> 00:17:54.040
  • didn't run.
  • 00:17:59.080 --> 00:18:00.240
  • We run to the fire.
  • 00:18:00.240 --> 00:18:01.260
  • - Franklin: It's an incredible
  • 00:18:13.000 --> 00:18:16.000
  • story of how this ZMapp
  • 00:18:16.080 --> 00:18:19.080
  • came out of nowhere.
  • 00:18:19.080 --> 00:18:20.160
  • It had been given to a man
  • 00:18:20.160 --> 00:18:21.220
  • by the name of Dr. Khan
  • 00:18:21.220 --> 00:18:23.060
  • in Sierra Leone.
  • 00:18:23.060 --> 00:18:25.000
  • He was the world's foremost
  • 00:18:25.000 --> 00:18:26.140
  • doctor on Ebola,
  • 00:18:26.140 --> 00:18:27.170
  • and he had Ebola.
  • 00:18:27.170 --> 00:18:29.140
  • But he was working with another
  • 00:18:29.140 --> 00:18:30.270
  • organization, and the lawyers
  • 00:18:30.270 --> 00:18:33.140
  • for that organization said,
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:35.000
  • "It's a experimental drug.
  • 00:18:35.000 --> 00:18:36.290
  • You can't give it to him."
  • 00:18:36.290 --> 00:18:39.000
  • And he died.
  • 00:18:39.000 --> 00:18:40.170
  • And so here this experimental
  • 00:18:40.170 --> 00:18:42.060
  • drug was in Sierra Leone, and
  • 00:18:42.060 --> 00:18:44.030
  • they sent it to us.
  • 00:18:44.030 --> 00:18:45.150
  • It went by canoe.
  • 00:18:45.150 --> 00:18:46.210
  • It went by 4-wheel drive, and
  • 00:18:46.210 --> 00:18:48.260
  • ended up in an airplane, and it
  • 00:18:48.260 --> 00:18:50.210
  • was frozen to, like,
  • 00:18:50.210 --> 00:18:52.010
  • 20 below 0.
  • 00:18:52.010 --> 00:18:53.170
  • So when you opened this thing,
  • 00:18:53.170 --> 00:18:55.190
  • I mean, this, the moisture, the
  • 00:18:55.190 --> 00:18:57.250
  • vapor that came out looked like
  • 00:18:57.250 --> 00:18:59.130
  • somethin' out of a Alfred
  • 00:18:59.130 --> 00:19:00.290
  • Hitchcock movie.
  • 00:19:00.290 --> 00:19:02.130
  • But it was mice blood, and it
  • 00:19:02.180 --> 00:19:05.180
  • was cultivated on tobacco
  • 00:19:05.180 --> 00:19:07.040
  • leaves that grew these
  • 00:19:07.040 --> 00:19:08.170
  • antibodies for Ebola.
  • 00:19:08.170 --> 00:19:11.120
  • So when they asked me,
  • 00:19:11.120 --> 00:19:12.230
  • "Franklin, should we put this
  • 00:19:12.230 --> 00:19:14.200
  • in him?"
  • 00:19:14.200 --> 00:19:15.090
  • I said, "It's made from mice
  • 00:19:15.090 --> 00:19:16.030
  • blood?
  • 00:19:16.030 --> 00:19:17.040
  • You gotta be kidding me."
  • 00:19:17.040 --> 00:19:18.060
  • I said, "Are you all serious?"
  • 00:19:18.060 --> 00:19:19.110
  • I thought they were, may be
  • 00:19:19.110 --> 00:19:20.120
  • some kind of a sick joke.
  • 00:19:20.120 --> 00:19:21.250
  • They said, "No."
  • 00:19:21.250 --> 00:19:23.020
  • And so God brought this ZMapp,
  • 00:19:24.220 --> 00:19:27.220
  • and it worked.
  • 00:19:27.220 --> 00:19:29.080
  • And it saved Dr. Brantly's life,
  • 00:19:29.080 --> 00:19:30.110
  • and it saved Nancy
  • 00:19:30.110 --> 00:19:32.070
  • Writebol's life.
  • 00:19:32.070 --> 00:19:33.110
  • And Nancy Writebol is back on
  • 00:19:33.110 --> 00:19:35.240
  • the field.
  • 00:19:35.240 --> 00:19:36.110
  • I saw her last week.
  • 00:19:36.110 --> 00:19:37.070
  • She's back in Liberia.
  • 00:19:37.070 --> 00:19:39.050
  • But we've, we just finished
  • 00:19:39.050 --> 00:19:40.200
  • dedicating a hospital, a
  • 00:19:40.200 --> 00:19:42.200
  • The president of the country
  • 00:19:44.190 --> 00:19:47.190
  • was there.
  • 00:19:47.190 --> 00:19:48.090
  • The vice president was there.
  • 00:19:48.090 --> 00:19:49.090
  • It was a great celebration.
  • 00:19:49.090 --> 00:19:50.280
  • But it was a thanksgiving
  • 00:19:50.280 --> 00:19:51.190
  • service, thanking God for not
  • 00:19:51.190 --> 00:19:54.080
  • only saving the life of the
  • 00:19:54.080 --> 00:19:57.010
  • Liberian people, but givin' us
  • 00:19:57.010 --> 00:19:58.080
  • an opportunity.
  • 00:19:58.080 --> 00:19:59.250
  • - Matt: Our paths have crossed
  • 00:19:59.250 --> 00:20:02.020
  • over the years.
  • 00:20:02.020 --> 00:20:03.080
  • You were sitting in this
  • 00:20:03.080 --> 00:20:04.280
  • studio, we think, in 1979 or
  • 00:20:06.150 --> 00:20:09.150
  • 1980.
  • 00:20:09.150 --> 00:20:10.150
  • It looked a little bit
  • 00:20:10.150 --> 00:20:11.040
  • different back then.
  • 00:20:11.040 --> 00:20:13.170
  • But basically, you know, TBN
  • 00:20:13.170 --> 00:20:16.020
  • and the Samaritan's Purse and
  • 00:20:16.020 --> 00:20:18.080
  • the BGEA have been doing,
  • 00:20:18.080 --> 00:20:19.240
  • basically, what we're doing now
  • 00:20:19.240 --> 00:20:21.180
  • for decades.
  • 00:20:21.180 --> 00:20:23.010
  • And we're still doing the same
  • 00:20:23.010 --> 00:20:24.040
  • thing.
  • 00:20:24.040 --> 00:20:24.270
  • So that's awesome.
  • 00:20:24.270 --> 00:20:26.100
  • Helping during the recent
  • 00:20:26.100 --> 00:20:28.240
  • Hurricane Matthew, which is
  • 00:20:28.240 --> 00:20:30.060
  • what my staff calls me,
  • 00:20:30.060 --> 00:20:31.110
  • Hurricane Matthew.
  • 00:20:31.110 --> 00:20:33.010
  • But the idea, where is
  • 00:20:33.010 --> 00:20:35.210
  • Samaritan's Purse in help and
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:37.040
  • relief there?
  • 00:20:37.040 --> 00:20:38.120
  • - Franklin: Well, Samaritan's
  • 00:20:38.120 --> 00:20:39.080
  • Purse got involved in Haiti in
  • 00:20:39.080 --> 00:20:40.110
  • a large way right after the
  • 00:20:40.110 --> 00:20:42.070
  • earthquake in Haiti.
  • 00:20:42.070 --> 00:20:44.180
  • And we still have a large
  • 00:20:44.180 --> 00:20:46.150
  • office down there.
  • 00:20:46.150 --> 00:20:47.130
  • We have an orphanage
  • 00:20:47.130 --> 00:20:48.240
  • that we started.
  • 00:20:48.240 --> 00:20:51.140
  • And that orphanage is going
  • 00:20:51.140 --> 00:20:53.010
  • full blast.
  • 00:20:53.010 --> 00:20:54.220
  • But this hurricane that came
  • 00:20:54.220 --> 00:20:56.120
  • through a few weeks ago, we've
  • 00:20:56.170 --> 00:20:59.170
  • responded.
  • 00:20:59.170 --> 00:21:00.170
  • We have a DC8 cargo plane that
  • 00:21:00.170 --> 00:21:03.160
  • we've been flying back and
  • 00:21:03.160 --> 00:21:05.050
  • forth to Port-au-Prince.
  • 00:21:05.050 --> 00:21:06.160
  • We've taken about 200 tons of,
  • 00:21:06.160 --> 00:21:09.150
  • these would be hygiene kits.
  • 00:21:09.150 --> 00:21:11.150
  • We take water purifications
  • 00:21:11.150 --> 00:21:12.220
  • systems.
  • 00:21:12.220 --> 00:21:13.170
  • We take plastic that people can
  • 00:21:13.170 --> 00:21:14.280
  • make temporary shelter out of.
  • 00:21:14.280 --> 00:21:16.280
  • And so whether the hurricane,
  • 00:21:16.280 --> 00:21:18.270
  • and it hit there, but it also
  • 00:21:18.270 --> 00:21:20.080
  • hit the Bahamas, and then it
  • 00:21:20.080 --> 00:21:22.200
  • came up into North Carolina.
  • 00:21:22.200 --> 00:21:24.000
  • And Easter North Carolina had a
  • 00:21:24.000 --> 00:21:25.090
  • record amount of rain.
  • 00:21:25.090 --> 00:21:27.060
  • I don't think Eastern North
  • 00:21:27.060 --> 00:21:28.010
  • Carolina's ever had so much
  • 00:21:28.010 --> 00:21:28.260
  • rain.
  • 00:21:28.260 --> 00:21:29.260
  • And some of the communities are
  • 00:21:29.260 --> 00:21:31.240
  • just now where the water has
  • 00:21:31.240 --> 00:21:34.010
  • receded.
  • 00:21:34.010 --> 00:21:35.080
  • But what you have now is homes
  • 00:21:35.080 --> 00:21:37.000
  • that have been under water for
  • 00:21:37.000 --> 00:21:38.140
  • several weeks, and the mold,
  • 00:21:38.150 --> 00:21:41.150
  • and all those issues that you
  • 00:21:41.150 --> 00:21:42.250
  • have to deal with.
  • 00:21:42.250 --> 00:21:43.220
  • And we have teams of people.
  • 00:21:43.220 --> 00:21:45.090
  • We'll send out hundreds of
  • 00:21:45.090 --> 00:21:48.020
  • people a week.
  • 00:21:48.020 --> 00:21:48.290
  • We'll go work as volunteers in
  • 00:21:48.290 --> 00:21:50.250
  • a person's home.
  • 00:21:50.250 --> 00:21:51.240
  • You have to take the drywall
  • 00:21:51.240 --> 00:21:53.000
  • off.
  • 00:21:53.000 --> 00:21:53.260
  • You have to take the mud off
  • 00:21:53.260 --> 00:21:54.220
  • the floor.
  • 00:21:54.220 --> 00:21:55.090
  • You have to take the furniture
  • 00:21:55.090 --> 00:21:56.000
  • and all that, take it out to
  • 00:21:56.000 --> 00:21:56.250
  • the curb, throw it away, and
  • 00:21:56.250 --> 00:21:58.240
  • let the house actually dry out.
  • 00:21:58.240 --> 00:22:01.210
  • It's hard work.
  • 00:22:01.210 --> 00:22:02.160
  • But it's all done by
  • 00:22:02.160 --> 00:22:03.290
  • volunteers.
  • 00:22:03.290 --> 00:22:05.010
  • - Matt: Samaritan's Purse has
  • 00:22:05.010 --> 00:22:05.290
  • been helping situations around
  • 00:22:05.290 --> 00:22:07.290
  • the world for decades.
  • 00:22:07.290 --> 00:22:09.120
  • This one is Hurricane Matthew.
  • 00:22:09.120 --> 00:22:10.260
  • - Lance Plyler, M.D.: Haiti
  • 00:22:13.230 --> 00:22:14.210
  • has been hit by a massive
  • 00:22:14.210 --> 00:22:16.130
  • - Asher Bray: I've come across
  • 00:22:20.100 --> 00:22:21.120
  • house after house after house
  • 00:22:21.120 --> 00:22:23.210
  • with their roofs blown off.
  • 00:22:23.210 --> 00:22:25.070
  • - Lance: I mean, these people
  • 00:22:25.070 --> 00:22:26.010
  • are already without.
  • 00:22:26.010 --> 00:22:27.030
  • And now they've
  • 00:22:27.030 --> 00:22:27.260
  • been hit yet again.
  • 00:22:27.260 --> 00:22:28.250
  • You can read about it, and you
  • 00:22:31.070 --> 00:22:34.070
  • can even see it on TV, but when
  • 00:22:34.070 --> 00:22:35.190
  • you come here and you see it
  • 00:22:35.190 --> 00:22:37.110
  • firsthand, it's unbelievable.
  • 00:22:37.130 --> 00:22:40.130
  • You feel like you have to help
  • 00:22:40.130 --> 00:22:42.190
  • them.
  • 00:22:42.190 --> 00:22:43.080
  • I mean, it's your moral
  • 00:22:43.080 --> 00:22:44.000
  • in disaster response is
  • 00:22:48.000 --> 00:22:51.000
  • expediency, getting to ground
  • 00:22:51.000 --> 00:22:53.190
  • zero as fast as possible.
  • 00:22:53.190 --> 00:22:55.150
  • - Lance: Wherever they
  • 00:22:55.150 --> 00:22:56.210
  • recommend is a good place.
  • 00:22:56.210 --> 00:22:59.000
  • - Asher: We're distributing
  • 00:22:59.000 --> 00:23:00.040
  • blankets, water purification
  • 00:23:00.040 --> 00:23:01.260
  • filters, buckets, chlorine
  • 00:23:01.260 --> 00:23:03.180
  • tablets, hygiene kits, and
  • 00:23:03.180 --> 00:23:05.270
  • tarps.
  • 00:23:05.270 --> 00:23:07.040
  • - Lance: We are responding
  • 00:23:07.040 --> 00:23:08.050
  • medically with mobile medical
  • 00:23:08.050 --> 00:23:09.100
  • teams, and we bring large
  • 00:23:09.100 --> 00:23:11.030
  • mobile medical bags with us and
  • 00:23:11.030 --> 00:23:13.010
  • provide first aid immediately
  • 00:23:13.010 --> 00:23:14.200
  • to patients that are in dire
  • 00:23:14.200 --> 00:23:15.180
  • need.
  • 00:23:15.180 --> 00:23:16.270
  • - Asher: The community are
  • 00:23:16.270 --> 00:23:18.030
  • grateful.
  • 00:23:18.030 --> 00:23:19.070
  • They've thanked us.
  • 00:23:19.070 --> 00:23:20.030
  • They've even assisted us in
  • 00:23:20.030 --> 00:23:21.160
  • some situations because they
  • 00:23:21.160 --> 00:23:23.060
  • know, my heart is broken, man.
  • 00:23:27.080 --> 00:23:27.290
  • They are exposed to all of the
  • 00:23:27.290 --> 00:23:29.110
  • elements, the sun, the rain, no
  • 00:23:29.110 --> 00:23:31.130
  • place to stay.
  • 00:23:31.130 --> 00:23:32.210
  • And adding to this, we're
  • 00:23:32.210 --> 00:23:34.040
  • seeing this outbreak of cholera
  • 00:23:34.040 --> 00:23:35.180
  • so there is a great need for
  • 00:23:35.180 --> 00:23:36.200
  • outside help.
  • 00:23:36.200 --> 00:23:37.270
  • And I thank God Samaritan's
  • 00:23:37.270 --> 00:23:38.210
  • Purse is here to fill this gap
  • 00:23:38.210 --> 00:23:40.120
  • - Suzanne Jones: When we got
  • 00:23:43.110 --> 00:23:44.020
  • here, we found out that people
  • 00:23:44.020 --> 00:23:44.230
  • who were sick were just staying
  • 00:23:44.230 --> 00:23:45.150
  • in their homes because there
  • 00:23:45.150 --> 00:23:46.120
  • wasn't anywhere for them to go
  • 00:23:46.120 --> 00:23:47.290
  • for care.
  • 00:23:47.290 --> 00:23:49.080
  • - Lance: I mean, it's just
  • 00:23:51.030 --> 00:23:54.030
  • total helplessness.
  • 00:23:54.030 --> 00:23:55.150
  • So you just desperately want to
  • 00:23:55.150 --> 00:23:57.000
  • provide dignity and restoration
  • 00:23:57.000 --> 00:23:59.130
  • for them, and we can do that
  • 00:23:59.130 --> 00:24:01.120
  • through medical care and the
  • 00:24:01.120 --> 00:24:03.090
  • gospel.
  • 00:24:03.090 --> 00:24:04.210
  • - female: Thank you so much
  • 00:24:04.210 --> 00:24:05.170
  • for the opportunity we have to
  • 00:24:05.170 --> 00:24:06.220
  • serve your people here, in
  • 00:24:06.220 --> 00:24:08.110
  • Jesus' name, amen.
  • 00:24:08.110 --> 00:24:09.250
  • - Suzanne: The treatment for
  • 00:24:09.250 --> 00:24:10.210
  • cholera, essentially, is just
  • 00:24:10.210 --> 00:24:12.190
  • rapid rehydration with fluids,
  • 00:24:12.190 --> 00:24:14.140
  • however we can get it in, IV,
  • 00:24:14.140 --> 00:24:16.020
  • orally.
  • 00:24:16.020 --> 00:24:17.020
  • - Lance: I mean, it's really,
  • 00:24:17.020 --> 00:24:18.270
  • I always think of it as Lazarus
  • 00:24:18.270 --> 00:24:20.210
  • coming back from the dead.
  • 00:24:20.210 --> 00:24:22.120
  • They've lost so many fluids
  • 00:24:22.120 --> 00:24:24.000
  • through vomiting, and diarrhea,
  • 00:24:24.000 --> 00:24:26.020
  • that you can't even feel a
  • 00:24:26.020 --> 00:24:28.220
  • pulse.
  • 00:24:28.220 --> 00:24:29.240
  • And immediately, we will start
  • 00:24:29.240 --> 00:24:30.240
  • administering IV fluids.
  • 00:24:30.240 --> 00:24:32.030
  • And literally, within 20
  • 00:24:32.030 --> 00:24:34.050
  • minutes a person that appeared
  • 00:24:34.050 --> 00:24:35.190
  • to be deceased has risen from
  • 00:24:35.190 --> 00:24:37.030
  • the dead, and they will
  • 00:24:37.030 --> 00:24:38.010
  • communicate with you and talk
  • 00:24:38.010 --> 00:24:39.040
  • to you.
  • 00:24:39.040 --> 00:24:40.220
  • - Suzanne: It's fairly easy to
  • 00:24:40.220 --> 00:24:42.160
  • treat.
  • 00:24:42.160 --> 00:24:43.230
  • It's just a matter of being
  • 00:24:43.230 --> 00:24:45.090
  • patients have died because
  • 00:24:48.040 --> 00:24:48.230
  • they're unable to get to care.
  • 00:24:48.230 --> 00:24:50.050
  • So what we're trying to do is
  • 00:24:50.050 --> 00:24:51.070
  • to move the medical treatment
  • 00:24:51.070 --> 00:24:53.020
  • to the patients where they need
  • 00:24:53.020 --> 00:24:54.170
  • it.
  • 00:24:54.170 --> 00:24:55.180
  • - Tim Mosher: Everybody that's
  • 00:24:55.180 --> 00:24:56.100
  • here right now walked in here 3
  • 00:24:56.100 --> 00:24:58.130
  • or 4 hours.
  • 00:24:58.130 --> 00:24:59.230
  • in.
  • 00:25:00.290 --> 00:25:03.290
  • - Steve: It's a little more
  • 00:25:03.290 --> 00:25:04.190
  • difficult for us to get there,
  • 00:25:04.190 --> 00:25:05.180
  • but we're healthy, and they
  • 00:25:05.180 --> 00:25:07.150
  • aren't healthy enough to get
  • 00:25:07.150 --> 00:25:08.160
  • down to where it's
  • 00:25:08.160 --> 00:25:09.120
  • - Suzanne: These are
  • 00:25:24.040 --> 00:25:24.250
  • the people that Jesus loves,
  • 00:25:24.250 --> 00:25:26.010
  • you know?
  • 00:25:26.010 --> 00:25:27.200
  • These are the people that Jesus
  • 00:25:27.200 --> 00:25:28.250
  • died for.
  • 00:25:28.250 --> 00:25:29.140
  • These are the people that Jesus
  • 00:25:29.140 --> 00:25:30.130
  • would have us love and would
  • 00:25:30.130 --> 00:25:33.000
  • have us care for.
  • 00:25:33.000 --> 00:25:34.080
  • So I immediately think we need
  • 00:25:34.080 --> 00:25:37.040
  • to do everything possible
  • 00:25:37.040 --> 00:25:38.140
  • because we are, literally, the
  • 00:25:38.140 --> 00:25:40.070
  • hands and feet of Jesus in this
  • 00:25:40.070 --> 00:25:41.100
  • just, you know, the partners
  • 00:25:48.110 --> 00:25:51.110
  • with TBN hear that, you know,
  • 00:25:51.260 --> 00:25:54.260
  • we started this broadcast by
  • 00:25:54.260 --> 00:25:56.150
  • saying that your first
  • 00:25:56.150 --> 00:25:57.250
  • appearance sitting on a chair
  • 00:25:57.250 --> 00:26:00.060
  • in this studio would have been
  • 00:26:00.060 --> 00:26:01.120
  • about 1979 or 1980.
  • 00:26:01.120 --> 00:26:04.100
  • The studio looked a lot
  • 00:26:04.100 --> 00:26:06.230
  • different, but the circumstance
  • 00:26:06.230 --> 00:26:08.270
  • of why you were here is the
  • 00:26:08.270 --> 00:26:10.230
  • same now, almost 40 years
  • 00:26:10.230 --> 00:26:13.040
  • later.
  • 00:26:13.040 --> 00:26:14.040
  • You've been involved in
  • 00:26:14.040 --> 00:26:16.290
  • diseases, and tragedies, you
  • 00:26:16.290 --> 00:26:19.190
  • know, all over the world for
  • 00:26:19.190 --> 00:26:22.050
  • all these many years.
  • 00:26:22.050 --> 00:26:23.010
  • And the TBN partners have been
  • 00:26:23.010 --> 00:26:24.110
  • there to help.
  • 00:26:24.110 --> 00:26:25.200
  • Just, in final thoughts,
  • 00:26:25.200 --> 00:26:27.090
  • please, sir,
  • 00:26:27.090 --> 00:26:28.250
  • to the viewers of TBN.
  • 00:26:28.250 --> 00:26:31.020
  • - Franklin: Well, first of
  • 00:26:31.020 --> 00:26:32.270
  • all, I wanna say thank you to
  • 00:26:32.270 --> 00:26:34.020
  • helped.
  • 00:26:39.290 --> 00:26:41.120
  • Through TBN people around the
  • 00:26:42.080 --> 00:26:45.080
  • world, you have partnered with
  • 00:26:45.080 --> 00:26:47.090
  • Samaritan's Purse time and time
  • 00:26:47.090 --> 00:26:48.230
  • again.
  • 00:26:48.230 --> 00:26:49.120
  • And so we're so grateful and so
  • 00:26:49.120 --> 00:26:50.150
  • thankful for the friendship of
  • 00:26:50.150 --> 00:26:52.080
  • this ministry.
  • 00:26:52.080 --> 00:26:53.290
  • And of course, your mom and dad
  • 00:26:53.290 --> 00:26:55.140
  • were such great, great friends,
  • 00:26:55.140 --> 00:26:57.040
  • and we miss them and love them.
  • 00:26:57.040 --> 00:26:59.060
  • But we're grateful to God for
  • 00:26:59.060 --> 00:27:01.030
  • the opportunities that he gives
  • 00:27:01.030 --> 00:27:02.070
  • us.
  • 00:27:02.070 --> 00:27:03.070
  • But I want all of you to know
  • 00:27:03.070 --> 00:27:04.290
  • that God loves ya and he cares
  • 00:27:04.290 --> 00:27:05.280
  • for ya.
  • 00:27:05.280 --> 00:27:06.170
  • And he sent his Son from heaven
  • 00:27:06.170 --> 00:27:08.200
  • to this earth for your sins.
  • 00:27:08.200 --> 00:27:10.120
  • And that's the problem the
  • 00:27:10.120 --> 00:27:11.050
  • world has.
  • 00:27:11.050 --> 00:27:12.130
  • We have a sin problem.
  • 00:27:12.130 --> 00:27:14.030
  • And sin has infected the entire
  • 00:27:14.030 --> 00:27:15.130
  • human race.
  • 00:27:15.130 --> 00:27:16.200
  • But God loves us.
  • 00:27:16.200 --> 00:27:17.270
  • He made us.
  • 00:27:17.270 --> 00:27:18.150
  • He created us.
  • 00:27:18.150 --> 00:27:19.240
  • And he doesn't want us to be
  • 00:27:19.240 --> 00:27:20.260
  • separate from him.
  • 00:27:20.260 --> 00:27:22.080
  • He wants that fellowship with
  • 00:27:22.080 --> 00:27:23.190
  • us.
  • 00:27:23.190 --> 00:27:24.070
  • But sin is a barrier, it's a
  • 00:27:24.070 --> 00:27:25.080
  • But only God, through faith in
  • 00:27:29.040 --> 00:27:32.040
  • his Son Jesus Christ can that
  • 00:27:32.040 --> 00:27:33.130
  • wall be broken down.
  • 00:27:33.130 --> 00:27:35.090
  • And I was 22 years old when I
  • 00:27:35.090 --> 00:27:38.050
  • put my faith and trust in Jesus
  • 00:27:38.050 --> 00:27:39.100
  • Christ.
  • 00:27:39.100 --> 00:27:40.180
  • And God heard my prayer, and he
  • 00:27:40.180 --> 00:27:42.210
  • forgave my sins.
  • 00:27:42.210 --> 00:27:43.230
  • And he'll forgive your sins,
  • 00:27:43.230 --> 00:27:45.010
  • and he'll cleanse your life,
  • 00:27:45.010 --> 00:27:46.150
  • and make you a new person.
  • 00:27:46.150 --> 00:27:48.270
  • But you've got to be willing to
  • 00:27:48.270 --> 00:27:50.110
  • come to God through faith in
  • 00:27:50.110 --> 00:27:52.210
  • his Son Jesus Christ.
  • 00:27:52.210 --> 00:27:54.040
  • The Bible says, "If you just
  • 00:27:54.040 --> 00:27:55.210
  • believe in the name of the Lord
  • 00:27:55.210 --> 00:27:56.250
  • Jesus Christ, you'll be saved."
  • 00:27:56.250 --> 00:27:58.210
  • And if you've never done that,
  • 00:27:58.210 --> 00:27:59.270
  • you can do it right now.
  • 00:27:59.270 --> 00:28:00.270
  • Just pray this prayer right
  • 00:28:00.270 --> 00:28:02.030
  • now, wherever you are, if
  • 00:28:02.030 --> 00:28:03.020
  • you've never invited Christ
  • 00:28:03.020 --> 00:28:03.270
  • into your heart.
  • 00:28:03.270 --> 00:28:04.170
  • Do it right now.
  • 00:28:04.170 --> 00:28:05.240
  • Just say: "Dear God, I'm a
  • 00:28:05.240 --> 00:28:07.120
  • sinner.
  • 00:28:07.120 --> 00:28:08.020
  • I'm sorry.
  • 00:28:08.020 --> 00:28:09.000
  • Forgive me.
  • 00:28:09.000 --> 00:28:10.150
  • I believe that Jesus Christ is
  • 00:28:10.150 --> 00:28:12.040
  • your Son.
  • 00:28:12.040 --> 00:28:13.060
  • I want to trust him as my
  • 00:28:13.060 --> 00:28:14.130
  • Savior.
  • 00:28:14.130 --> 00:28:15.130
  • I want to invite him to come
  • 00:28:15.130 --> 00:28:17.040
  • into my heart, to take control
  • 00:28:17.040 --> 00:28:20.020
  • of my life, from this moment,
  • 00:28:20.020 --> 00:28:23.010
  • forever.
  • 00:28:23.010 --> 00:28:24.160
  • And I pray this in Jesus' name,
  • 00:28:24.240 --> 00:28:27.240
  • amen."
  • 00:28:27.240 --> 00:28:29.170
  • Call that number on the screen
  • 00:28:29.170 --> 00:28:30.240
  • if you've prayed that prayer.
  • 00:28:30.240 --> 00:28:32.090
  • They've got counselors right
  • 00:28:32.090 --> 00:28:33.050
  • here who will take your call,
  • 00:28:33.050 --> 00:28:34.230
  • wanna hear from ya.
  • 00:28:34.230 --> 00:28:36.130
  • But know that God loves you,
  • 00:28:36.130 --> 00:28:39.050
  • and TBN loves you as well.
  • 00:28:39.050 --> 00:28:41.040
  • Thank you.
  • 00:28:41.040 --> 00:28:42.040
  • - Matt: Wow.
  • 00:28:42.040 --> 00:28:43.050
  • The old adage that many things
  • 00:28:43.140 --> 00:28:46.140
  • change but many things remain
  • 00:28:46.140 --> 00:28:48.010
  • the same, this studio looks a
  • 00:28:48.230 --> 00:28:51.230
  • little different.
  • 00:28:51.230 --> 00:28:53.000
  • Styles change.
  • 00:28:53.000 --> 00:28:54.070
  • The way you do your crusades
  • 00:28:54.070 --> 00:28:56.150
  • sometimes will change here and
  • 00:28:56.150 --> 00:28:58.070
  • there.
  • 00:28:58.070 --> 00:28:58.230
  • The way TBN's programming is
  • 00:28:58.230 --> 00:29:00.190
  • will change, and looks change,
  • 00:29:00.190 --> 00:29:03.020
  • and styles change.
  • 00:29:03.020 --> 00:29:04.090
  • But one thing doesn't change.
  • 00:29:04.090 --> 00:29:06.040
  • We're talkin' about crisis
  • 00:29:06.040 --> 00:29:07.260
  • around the world and God's love
  • 00:29:07.260 --> 00:29:09.200
  • extending to people, and we're
  • 00:29:09.200 --> 00:29:11.130
  • talkin' about Jesus and how he
  • 00:29:11.130 --> 00:29:13.140
  • can change every life.
  • 00:29:13.140 --> 00:29:14.190
  • So thank you, Franklin.
  • 00:29:14.190 --> 00:29:15.270
  • I know there'll be another
  • 00:29:15.270 --> 00:29:18.040
  • crisis around the world.
  • 00:29:18.040 --> 00:29:19.290
  • The Lord said it, "Tribulation
  • 00:29:19.290 --> 00:29:21.050
  • you'll have."
  • 00:29:21.050 --> 00:29:22.130
  • And it just seems like that
  • 00:29:22.130 --> 00:29:23.270
  • your organization, Samaritan's
  • 00:29:23.270 --> 00:29:25.270
  • Purse, is always right in the

  • 00:29:34.220 --> 00:29:35.110
  • Thanks for comin' out to LA.
  • 00:29:35.110 --> 00:29:36.020
