  • 00:03:40.070 --> 00:03:43.010
  • LET ME ASK YOU THIS, FRANKLIN.
  • 00:03:43.030 --> 00:03:46.110
  • WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THE NATION OF LIBERIA THAT
  • 00:03:46.130 --> 00:03:51.110
  • CAUSED YOU TO HEAR GOD'S CALL TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:03:51.130 --> 00:03:54.270
  • ABOUT IT?
  • 00:03:54.290 --> 00:03:57.120
  • - YOU KNOW, CLIFTON, IN 2003 WE WENT TO LIBERIA
  • 00:03:57.140 --> 00:04:00.020
  • AT THE END OF CIVIL WAR.
  • 00:04:00.040 --> 00:04:05.150
  • THE COUNTRY WAS JUST DESTROYED.
  • 00:04:05.170 --> 00:04:08.200
  • THE CHURCHES THERE WERE ASKING FOR HELP.
  • 00:04:08.220 --> 00:04:12.090
  • THERE WAS A MISSION ORGANIZATION THAT HAD A
  • 00:04:12.110 --> 00:04:14.280
  • LITTLE HOSPITAL CALLED ELWAN, AND WE BEGAN TO
  • 00:04:15.000 --> 00:04:18.190
  • HELP THAT HOSPITAL WITH EQUIPMENT AND BEDS AND
  • 00:04:18.210 --> 00:04:21.120
  • SHEETS AND THOSE KINDS OF THINGS TRYING TO BRING IT
  • 00:04:21.140 --> 00:04:23.110
  • UP A LEVEL.
  • 00:04:23.130 --> 00:04:25.200
  • AND THEN WE STARTED HELPING IN SOME OF THE REMOTE
  • 00:04:25.220 --> 00:04:28.020
  • AREAS BECAUSE THE INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE
  • 00:04:28.040 --> 00:04:30.000
  • COUNTRY WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:04:30.020 --> 00:04:32.070
  • WE TOOK A AIRPLANE OVER THERE, HELICOPTER SO WE
  • 00:04:32.090 --> 00:04:33.240
  • COULD GET OUT INTO REMOTE AREAS TO HELP PEOPLE AND
  • 00:04:33.260 --> 00:04:35.170
  • TO WORK WITH THE NATIONAL CHURCH.
  • 00:04:35.190 --> 00:04:37.210
  • THEN IN 2014, WE HEARD THAT EBOLA -AND I'VE
  • 00:04:37.230 --> 00:04:45.010
  • HEARD OF EBOLA BEFORE -WAS IN GUINEA, AND IT
  • 00:04:45.030 --> 00:04:48.100
  • MIGHT COME INTO LIBERIA, AND I WENT OH, THAT'S THE
  • 00:04:48.120 --> 00:04:51.290
  • WORLD'S MOST DEADLY VIRUS.
  • 00:04:52.010 --> 00:04:55.220
  • - IT IS.
  • 00:04:55.240 --> 00:04:57.120
  • - IT'S A HEMORRHAGIC FEVER, AND THERE WAS NO
  • 00:04:57.140 --> 00:04:59.180
  • CURE FOR IT.
  • 00:04:59.200 --> 00:05:01.250
  • IT WAS ALMOST 100% FATAL, AND I THOUGHT TO
  • 00:05:01.270 --> 00:05:04.180
  • MYSELF BOY, I HOPE EBOLA DOESN'T COME.
  • 00:05:04.200 --> 00:05:07.180
  • NEXT THING WE KNEW IT CAME.
  • 00:05:07.200 --> 00:05:09.160
  • - YES. YES.
  • 00:05:09.180 --> 00:05:11.190
  • NOW, BEFORE EBOLA CAME TO LIBERIA, THERE WAS
  • 00:05:11.210 --> 00:05:13.220
  • ALREADY A HUMANITARIAN CRISIS, AM I RIGHT?
  • 00:05:13.240 --> 00:05:16.050
  • - AFTER THE CIVIL WAR -- - ON THE HEELS OF THAT
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:18.140
  • WAR THERE MUST HAVE BEEN A LOT OF MEDICAL ISSUES.
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:21.260
  • - MEDICAL ISSUES, FAMINE.
  • 00:05:21.280 --> 00:05:23.290
  • I MEAN, THERE WAS STARVATION IN CERTAIN AREAS.
  • 00:05:24.010 --> 00:05:26.150
  • AGAIN, THE WHOLE INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE
  • 00:05:26.170 --> 00:05:28.230
  • COUNTRY WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:05:28.250 --> 00:05:30.210
  • THE AIRPORTS HAD BEEN DESTROYED.
  • 00:05:30.230 --> 00:05:32.170
  • THE ROADS HAD BEEN DESTROYED.
  • 00:05:32.190 --> 00:05:34.010
  • THE BRIDGES HAD BEEN DESTROYED, SO YOU
  • 00:05:34.030 --> 00:05:36.030
  • COULDN'T EVEN GET PRODUCE, YOU COULDN'T GET
  • 00:05:36.050 --> 00:05:38.150
  • FOOD FROM ONE END OF THE COUNTRY TO THE OTHER, AND
  • 00:05:38.170 --> 00:05:41.180
  • SO WE JUST STARTED WORKING AND, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:05:41.200 --> 00:05:43.190
  • WHEN YOU GO INTO A COUNTRY LIKE LIBERIA, YOU
  • 00:05:43.210 --> 00:05:46.290
  • DON'T ALWAYS GO WITH A PLAN.
  • 00:05:47.010 --> 00:05:48.230
  • YOUR PLAN IS OKAY, WE'RE GOING TO SEE WHAT WE CAN
  • 00:05:48.250 --> 00:05:50.080
  • DO TO HELP.
  • 00:05:50.100 --> 00:05:51.240
  • - YES.
  • 00:05:51.260 --> 00:05:53.230
  • - AND THEN EACH DAY YOU JUST ASK GOD TO
  • 00:05:53.250 --> 00:05:55.060
  • GIVE YOU WISDOM.
  • 00:05:55.080 --> 00:05:56.250
  • YOU ASK GOD TO GUIDE YOU AND DIRECT YOU, AND WE
  • 00:05:56.270 --> 00:05:58.210
  • JUST STARTED WORKING, AND IT BEGAN TO DEVELOP.
  • 00:05:58.230 --> 00:06:00.250
  • AND WE HAD DOCTORS OVER THERE, AND WHEN EBOLA,
  • 00:06:00.270 --> 00:06:03.170
  • WHEN IT CAME INTO LIBERIA, I GOT A PHONE
  • 00:06:03.190 --> 00:06:08.250
  • CALL, AND OUR PROJECTS DIRECTOR SAID FRANKLIN,
  • 00:06:08.270 --> 00:06:12.230
  • COULD WE USE OUR HELICOPTER AND OUR
  • 00:06:12.250 --> 00:06:16.290
  • AIRPLANE TO HELP TRANSFER MEDICAL PEOPLE TO THE
  • 00:06:17.010 --> 00:06:22.000
  • EBOLA AREAS?
  • 00:06:22.020 --> 00:06:24.040
  • THESE WOULD BE PEOPLE FROM THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION.
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:25.280
  • OKAY.
  • 00:06:26.000 --> 00:06:27.230
  • I'M THINKING TO MYSELF, BOY, I HOPE WE DON'T GET
  • 00:06:27.250 --> 00:06:29.190
  • OUR AIRPLANES, EBOLA IN THEM OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:06:29.210 --> 00:06:32.020
  • [ LAUGHTER ] NEXT THING WE KNEW, EBOLA WAS COMING
  • 00:06:32.040 --> 00:06:35.250
  • INTO MONROVIA WHERE WE WORKED AND LIVED.
  • 00:06:35.270 --> 00:06:39.070
  • - WOW.
  • 00:06:39.090 --> 00:06:41.150
  • - AND THERE WAS NOBODY TO FIGHT IT.
  • 00:06:41.170 --> 00:06:43.250
  • AND SO THE NEXT CALL WAS FRANKLIN, CAN WE SET UP
  • 00:06:43.270 --> 00:06:45.230
  • AN EBOLA TREATMENT UNIT, AND SAMARITAN'S PURSE IS
  • 00:06:45.250 --> 00:06:47.210
  • GOING TO RUN IT?
  • 00:06:47.230 --> 00:06:49.200
  • AND I JUST HAD, CLIFTON, IN MY STOMACH I HAD A KNOT.
  • 00:06:49.220 --> 00:06:53.270
  • AND I THOUGHT WE'RE NOT PREPARED FOR THIS TO
  • 00:06:53.290 --> 00:06:56.070
  • FIGHT EBOLA, THE AT WORLD'S MOST DEADLY VIRUS.
  • 00:06:56.090 --> 00:06:59.050
  • THIS IS SOMETHING FOR SOMEBODY ELSE TO DO.
  • 00:06:59.070 --> 00:07:01.080
  • NOT US.
  • 00:07:01.100 --> 00:07:04.110
  • BUT IN THE WORK OF SAMARITAN'S PURSE, WE
  • 00:07:04.130 --> 00:07:06.180
  • DON'T RUN, CLIFTON, WE DON'T RUN FROM CRISES.
  • 00:07:06.200 --> 00:07:09.100
  • WE RUN TO THEM.
  • 00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:11.060
  • - I LOVE THAT. I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:07:11.080 --> 00:07:13.120
  • - AND THAT'S SOMETHING WHEN NOBODY ELSE WOULD DO
  • 00:07:13.140 --> 00:07:15.030
  • IT I SAID OKAY, WE WILL DO IT.
  • 00:07:15.050 --> 00:07:17.070
  • - HOW DID YOU FEEL IN TERMS OF BEING THERE?
  • 00:07:17.090 --> 00:07:19.010
  • BECAUSE I KNOW YOU WEREN'T THERE THE WHOLE
  • 00:07:19.030 --> 00:07:20.200
  • TIME, BUT YOU DID GO OVER AND VISIT.
  • 00:07:20.220 --> 00:07:22.170
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:24.160
  • I'VE BEEN THERE A NUMBER OF TIMES.
  • 00:07:24.180 --> 00:07:26.070
  • - WERE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR OWN
  • 00:07:26.090 --> 00:07:27.230
  • WELL-BEING AT ALL?
  • 00:07:27.250 --> 00:07:29.210
  • - I THINK YOU'RE ALWAYS CONCERNED TO A POINT, BUT
  • 00:07:29.230 --> 00:07:31.220
  • AT THE SAME TIME THIS IS SOMETHING GOD HAS CALLED
  • 00:07:31.240 --> 00:07:34.110
  • YOU TO, SO I MEAN, IT'S DANGEROUS IN NEW YORK
  • 00:07:34.130 --> 00:07:38.100
  • CITY IF YOU'RE NOT CALLED TO BE HERE.
  • 00:07:38.120 --> 00:07:40.210
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:07:40.230 --> 00:07:43.210
  • - I THINK YOU GOT A COUPLE OF WITNESSES.
  • 00:07:43.230 --> 00:07:45.180
  • [ APPLAUSE ]
  • 00:07:45.200 --> 00:07:49.200
  • - BUT YOU KNOW, THE KEY IS BEING IN GOD'S WILL,
  • 00:07:49.220 --> 00:07:52.040
  • AND THAT'S THE KEY.
  • 00:07:52.060 --> 00:07:54.040
  • AND WHEN YOU'RE IN GOD'S WILL, I DON'T CARE WHERE
  • 00:07:54.060 --> 00:07:56.140
  • YOU ARE, I BELIEVE THAT HE SENDS HIS ANGELS AND
  • 00:07:56.160 --> 00:07:59.050
  • HE PROTECTS YOU AND HE KEEPS YOU SAFE.
  • 00:07:59.070 --> 00:08:02.250
  • - YES.
  • 00:08:02.270 --> 00:08:05.020
  • - AND SO IN LIBERIA, WE KNEW GOD HAD CALLED US
  • 00:08:05.040 --> 00:08:07.200
  • THERE, AND THE PERSON THAT WE HAD TO SET UP
  • 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:10.190
  • THIS EBOLA TREATMENT UNIT, CLIFTON, HIS NAME
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:15.020
  • IS KENT BRANTLY, AN INCREDIBLE YOUNG DOCTOR,
  • 00:08:15.040 --> 00:08:19.030
  • JUST FINISHED SCHOOL AND WE HAD SENT HIM OUT THERE
  • 00:08:19.050 --> 00:08:22.110
  • TO WORK, HE AND HIS WIFE AND HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:08:22.130 --> 00:08:24.220
  • AND WHEN WE NEEDED A DIRECTOR, SOMEBODY TO RUN --
  • 00:08:24.240 --> 00:08:27.130
  • SOMEBODY HAS TO TAKE CHARGE OF THIS EBOLA
  • 00:08:27.150 --> 00:08:29.230
  • TREATMENT UNIT.

  • 00:17:26.270 --> 00:17:32.080
  • YOUR ORGANS BEGIN TO BLEED INSIDE SO BLOOD
  • 00:17:32.100 --> 00:17:34.150
  • COMES OUT OF YOUR NOSE.
  • 00:17:34.170 --> 00:17:36.140
  • IT COMES OUT OF YOUR EARS.
  • 00:17:36.160 --> 00:17:37.270
  • IT COMES OUT OF YOUR URINE, YOUR STOOL.
  • 00:17:37.290 --> 00:17:39.250
  • EVERY ORIFICE OF YOUR BODY BLOOD BEGINS TO OOZE.
  • 00:17:39.270 --> 00:17:45.260
  • IT'S A TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE THING.
  • 00:17:45.280 --> 00:17:47.240
  • BUT DOCTOR BRANTLY HAD THIS.
  • 00:17:47.260 --> 00:17:51.070
  • SO SATURDAY WE KNEW HE HAD IT.
  • 00:17:51.090 --> 00:17:54.060
  • ON MONDAY, WE FOUND THIS INSURANCE POLICY.
  • 00:17:54.080 --> 00:17:57.040
  • BY MONDAY EVENING NOW WE KNEW THAT PLANE IS NOT GOING.
  • 00:17:57.060 --> 00:18:00.280
  • TUESDAY, ONE OF OUR GUYS WAS TALKING TO A GUY AT
  • 00:18:01.000 --> 00:18:04.080
  • THE STATE DEPARTMENT, AND THIS GUY SAID, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:18:04.100 --> 00:18:07.140
  • WE DO HAVE AN ASSET THAT CAN TRANSPORT A HIGHLY
  • 00:18:07.160 --> 00:18:12.080
  • INFECTED PERSON.
  • 00:18:12.100 --> 00:18:14.130
  • WHO DO WE HAVE TO TALK TO?
  • 00:18:14.150 --> 00:18:16.250
  • HE SAID, YOU'RE TALKING TO HIM.
  • 00:18:16.270 --> 00:18:19.070
  • - WOW. WAIT A MINUTE.
  • 00:18:19.090 --> 00:18:21.130
  • [ APPLAUSE ]
  • 00:18:21.150 --> 00:18:24.010
  • I DON'T WANT OUR AUDIENCE TO MISS THIS.
  • 00:18:24.030 --> 00:18:26.250
  • HERE YOU'RE PRAYING, YOU'RE WORKING, YOU'RE THERE
  • 00:18:26.270 --> 00:18:29.170
  • IN GOD'S NAME, IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:18:29.190 --> 00:18:32.040
  • YOU ARE WORKING TO SAVE LIVES, AND ONE OF THE PEOPLE --
  • 00:18:32.060 --> 00:18:34.040
  • - FROM THE STATE DEPARTMENT.
  • 00:18:34.060 --> 00:18:36.200
  • - WHO IS SAVING LIVES COMES AT THE LAST MINUTE
  • 00:18:36.220 --> 00:18:40.110
  • AND HE GETS ILL, AND NOW YOU HAVE NO WAY TO HELP
  • 00:18:40.130 --> 00:18:43.070
  • HIM EXCEPT GOD INTERVENES.
  • 00:18:43.090 --> 00:18:46.010
  • [ APPLAUSE ]
  • 00:18:46.030 --> 00:18:48.050
  • - THERE WAS THIS GUY IN THE STATE DEPARTMENT.
  • 00:18:48.070 --> 00:18:50.120
  • HE'S NOT THE HEAD OF THE STATE DEPARTMENT.
  • 00:18:50.140 --> 00:18:52.020
  • HE'S JUST ONE OF THOSE GUYS DOWN WORKING AT A
  • 00:18:52.040 --> 00:18:54.060
  • DESK, BUT HE CONTROLLED THIS AIRPLANE.
  • 00:18:54.080 --> 00:18:57.100
  • - WOW.
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:18:59.070
  • - OUT OF GEORGIA, AND HE SAID NOW, SAMARITAN'S
  • 00:18:59.090 --> 00:19:01.260
  • PURSE WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR IT.
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:03.250
  • THE TAXPAYERS CANNOT DO THIS.
  • 00:19:03.270 --> 00:19:05.270
  • IT'S A GOVERNMENT AIRPLANE, BUT IF
  • 00:19:05.290 --> 00:19:07.280
  • SAMARITAN'S PURSE PAYS FOR THE PLANE,
  • 00:19:08.000 --> 00:19:09.220
  • I'LL MAKE IT AVAILABLE.
  • 00:19:09.240 --> 00:19:11.180
  • - WOW.
  • 00:19:11.200 --> 00:19:13.260

  • THEY HAVE THE MONEY.
  • 00:19:15.250 --> 00:19:17.200
  • SO THE PLANE IS NOW SCHEDULED TO LEAVE ON
  • 00:19:17.220 --> 00:19:20.020
  • WEDNESDAY TO PICK UP DOCTOR BRANTLY.
  • 00:19:20.040 --> 00:19:22.170
  • NOW DOCTOR BRANTLY -- - IT'S ALREADY SATURDAY.
  • 00:19:22.190 --> 00:19:24.140
  • - YEAH, WELL, HE CAME DOWN ON WEDNESDAY THE
  • 00:19:24.160 --> 00:19:26.200
  • PREVIOUS WEEK, SO IT'S NOW SEVEN DAYS.
  • 00:19:26.220 --> 00:19:28.170
  • - OH, MY GOODNESS.
  • 00:19:28.190 --> 00:19:31.090
  • - SO THE CLOCK IS TICKING.
  • 00:19:31.110 --> 00:19:33.100
  • AND HERE DR. BRANTLY IS SERIOUSLY ILL, AND HE'S
  • 00:19:33.120 --> 00:19:37.030
  • GETTING WEAKER BY THE DAY, AND THE PLANE TAKES
  • 00:19:37.050 --> 00:19:39.290
  • OFF ON WEDNESDAY, SCHEDULED TO PICK HIM UP
  • 00:19:40.010 --> 00:19:42.090
  • ON THURSDAY TO GET HIM BACK BY FRIDAY.
  • 00:19:42.110 --> 00:19:46.010
  • THE PLANE HAD PRESSURIZATION PROBLEMS,
  • 00:19:46.030 --> 00:19:50.180
  • SO HALFWAY ACROSS THE ATLANTIC, THE PLANE HAD
  • 00:19:50.200 --> 00:19:52.160
  • TO TURN AROUND AND COME BACK.
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:55.020
  • AND YOU JUST ASK YOURSELF, LORD, WHY?
  • 00:19:55.040 --> 00:19:59.130
  • WHAT IN THE WORLD?
  • 00:19:59.150 --> 00:20:01.150
  • ON THURSDAY, A PERSON SHOWED UP IN LIBERIA WITH
  • 00:20:01.170 --> 00:20:08.020
  • A BOX THAT HAD THREE FROZEN IV BAGS CALLED ZMAPP.
  • 00:20:08.040 --> 00:20:16.290
  • THEY SAID THIS HAS BEEN USED ON PRIMATES.
  • 00:20:17.010 --> 00:20:20.100
  • NOW PRIMATES, YOU KNOW, MONKEYS, APES.
  • 00:20:20.120 --> 00:20:22.270
  • IT'S NEVER BEEN USED ON A HUMAN BEING BEFORE.
  • 00:20:22.290 --> 00:20:25.280
  • THEY SAID BUT IN RESEARCH, IT SHOWED SOME PROMISE.
  • 00:20:26.000 --> 00:20:31.040
  • YOU MIGHT WANT TO GIVE THIS TO DR. BRANTLY.
  • 00:20:31.060 --> 00:20:34.140
  • NOW THIS STUFF HAD BEEN SENT TO SIERRA LEONE TO A
  • 00:20:34.160 --> 00:20:38.040
  • DOCTOR, DR. KHAN WHO WAS ONE OF THE LEADING
  • 00:20:38.060 --> 00:20:42.260
  • DOCTORS IN THE WORLD ON EBOLA.
  • 00:20:42.280 --> 00:20:44.160
  • HE HAD IT AND HE WAS DYING, BUT THE DOCTORS
  • 00:20:44.180 --> 00:20:47.060
  • REFUSED TO GIVE IT TO HIM BECAUSE IT WAS
  • 00:20:47.080 --> 00:20:48.230
  • EXPERIMENTAL, AND THE LAWYERS SAID WE COULD GET
  • 00:20:48.250 --> 00:20:51.130
  • SUED SO THEY DIDN'T GIVE IT TO HIM AND HE DIED.
  • 00:20:51.150 --> 00:20:55.150
  • SO NOW IT SHOWS UP, IT GOES BY CANOE ACROSS A
  • 00:20:55.170 --> 00:20:59.170
  • RIVER, IT GOES BY SMALL PLANE BY A TAXI AND NOW
  • 00:20:59.190 --> 00:21:03.170
  • WE GET THIS BOX. AND IT'S FROZEN.
  • 00:21:03.190 --> 00:21:06.230
  • WHEN YOU OPEN IT UP IN THE TROPICS, THIS
  • 00:21:06.250 --> 00:21:08.080
  • STEAM VAPOR COMES OFF.
  • 00:21:08.100 --> 00:21:10.240
  • IT LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF AN ALFRED HITCHCOCK
  • 00:21:10.260 --> 00:21:12.130
  • MOVIE, BUT IT'S MADE FROM MICE BLOOD OF ALL
  • 00:21:12.150 --> 00:21:17.250
  • THINGS, AND IT'S CULTIVATED ON TOBACCO LEAVES.
  • 00:21:17.270 --> 00:21:21.230
  • SO WHEN THEY TOLD ME THIS THING HAD ANTIBODIES IN
  • 00:21:21.250 --> 00:21:24.240
  • IT, I SAID MICE BLOOD?
  • 00:21:24.260 --> 00:21:27.030
  • I DON'T BELIEVE-- ARE YOU SURE?
  • 00:21:27.050 --> 00:21:31.050
  • AND WE'RE GONNA GIVE THIS TO DR. BRANTLY?
  • 00:21:31.070 --> 00:21:34.150
  • THEY SAID FRANKLIN, WE DON'T HAVE ANY CHOICE.
  • 00:21:34.170 --> 00:21:36.240
  • ON THURSDAY NIGHT, DR. BRANTLY, REMEMBER THE
  • 00:21:36.260 --> 00:21:39.230
  • PLANE HAD TO TURN AROUND AND GO BACK, DR. BRANTLY
  • 00:21:39.250 --> 00:21:42.140
  • NOW IS DYING.
  • 00:21:42.160 --> 00:21:44.170
  • HE'S ALREADY TOLD THE DOCTORS, OUR DOCTORS THAT
  • 00:21:44.190 --> 00:21:46.230
  • WERE TENDING HIM I DON'T HAVE ANYMORE STRENGTH,
  • 00:21:46.250 --> 00:21:49.060
  • I CANNOT CONTINUE.
  • 00:21:49.080 --> 00:21:52.040
  • AND HIS BREATHING NOW BECAME VERY LABORED.
  • 00:21:52.060 --> 00:21:55.100
  • AND HE SAID I WON'T MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT.
  • 00:21:55.120 --> 00:21:58.100
  • AND WE MADE THAT DECISION, OUR DOCTORS,
  • 00:21:58.120 --> 00:22:00.130
  • TO PUT THIS ZMAPP IN HIM.
  • 00:22:00.150 --> 00:22:03.260
  • - LET ME TOSS RIGHT NOW TO THE VIDEO ABOUT
  • 00:22:03.280 --> 00:22:08.000
  • DR. BRANTLY'S RESPONSE TO THIS MEDICINE.
  • 00:22:08.020 --> 00:22:11.290
  • - KENDELL CAME FLYING THROUGH THE DOOR AND SAID
  • 00:22:13.270 --> 00:22:17.250
  • YOU GUYS NEED TO START PRAYING FOR KENT,
  • 00:22:17.270 --> 00:22:19.090
  • HE'S ABOUT TO DIE AND THEN LEFT.
  • 00:22:19.110 --> 00:22:21.200
  • - I REMEMBER GETTING ON THE FLOOR AND PRAYING,
  • 00:22:21.220 --> 00:22:23.160
  • OH, GOD IT'S NOT TOO MUCH FOR YOU TO SAVE HIS LIFE,
  • 00:22:23.180 --> 00:22:29.170
  • WILL YOU SAVE IT.
  • 00:22:29.190 --> 00:22:31.210
  • - WE HUNG THE BAG OF ZMAPP AND HAD TO COUNT
  • 00:22:31.230 --> 00:22:35.170
  • THE DRIPS, AND I REALLY WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT
  • 00:22:35.190 --> 00:22:39.080
  • I GOT THE RATE RIGHT BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT IT
  • 00:22:39.100 --> 00:22:42.130
  • TO GO IN TOO FAST OR TO GO IN TOO SLOW.
  • 00:22:42.150 --> 00:22:46.170
  • IT WAS EXTREMELY STRESSFUL.
  • 00:22:46.190 --> 00:22:55.020
  • ALL I COULD THINK OF WAS I DON'T WANT HIM TO DIE.
  • 00:22:55.040 --> 00:23:00.230
  • - I SAID EVERYONE YOU JUST HAVE TO PRAY, JUST PRAY.
  • 00:23:01.200 --> 00:23:04.200
  • MY MOM WAS ASKING QUESTIONS, WHAT'S GOING ON?
  • 00:23:04.220 --> 00:23:06.240
  • SHOULD I TAKE THE KIDS OUT?
  • 00:23:06.260 --> 00:23:08.200
  • I SAID JUST PRAY MOM. JUST PRAY.
  • 00:23:08.220 --> 00:23:13.200
  • - WHILE WE WERE WAITING, KENT DEVELOPED RIGORS.
  • 00:23:14.200 --> 00:23:19.030
  • - HE STARTED TO CONVULSE.
  • 00:23:19.050 --> 00:23:20.180
  • - SHAKE VERY INTENSELY.
  • 00:23:20.200 --> 00:23:24.180
  • - AND I JUST THOUGHT TO MYSELF THIS IS IT.
  • 00:23:28.070 --> 00:23:30.290
  • - WOW!
  • 00:23:33.220 --> 00:23:35.160
  • AND INTO THIS MOMENT THIS DRAMATIC MOMENT,
  • 00:23:35.180 --> 00:23:39.160
  • THIS LIFE AND DEATH MOMENT, GOD STEPPED IN.
  • 00:23:39.180 --> 00:23:43.180
  • - HE SHOWED UP.
  • 00:23:43.200 --> 00:23:45.010
  • - HE SHOWED UP AND SHOWED OUT.
  • 00:23:45.030 --> 00:23:46.260
  • - HE SHOWED UP. [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:23:46.280 --> 00:23:57.180
  • - DR. BRANTLY BEGAN TO RESPOND TO THIS MEDICATION.
  • 00:23:57.200 --> 00:24:01.000
  • - LET ME TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:24:01.020 --> 00:24:03.020
  • - YES.
  • 00:24:03.040 --> 00:24:04.240
  • - THEY PUT THIS ZMAPP IN HIS ARM.
  • 00:24:04.260 --> 00:24:07.140
  • HE GOES INTO CONVULSIONS IMMEDIATELY, WHAT YOU SAW
  • 00:24:07.160 --> 00:24:11.160
  • IN THE FILM, THIS VIOLENT SHAKING.
  • 00:24:11.180 --> 00:24:15.200
  • AND SO THE DOCTORS CALLED THE MANUFACTURERS OF
  • 00:24:15.220 --> 00:24:18.290
  • THIS, IT'S KILLING HIM.
  • 00:24:19.010 --> 00:24:22.160
  • THEY SAID NO, WE SAW THIS HAPPEN TO THE PRIMATES.
  • 00:24:22.180 --> 00:24:25.060
  • IT'S THE ANTIBODIES FIGHTING THE VIRUS.
  • 00:24:25.080 --> 00:24:28.210
  • - WOW!
  • 00:24:28.230 --> 00:24:31.040
  • - SO HE HAS THIS VIOLENT SHAKING, AND 30 TO 35
  • 00:24:31.060 --> 00:24:38.210
  • MINUTES HE BEGAN TO RELAX, THE SHAKING STOPPED.
  • 00:24:38.230 --> 00:24:44.120
  • HE GOT OUT OF HIS BED AND WENT TO THE BATHROOM AND
  • 00:24:44.140 --> 00:24:48.100
  • HE HADN'T BEEN OUT OF THE BED IN THREE DAYS.
  • 00:24:48.120 --> 00:24:50.270
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:24:50.290 --> 00:24:58.100
  • REMEMBER THAT AIRPLANE THAT HAD TO
  • 00:24:58.120 --> 00:25:00.150
  • TURN AROUND AND GO BACK?
  • 00:25:00.170 --> 00:25:01.220
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:25:01.240 --> 00:25:03.010
  • - THAT AIRPLANE WAS SUPPOSED TO PICK HIM UP
  • 00:25:03.030 --> 00:25:04.160
  • THURSDAY. IF THAT PLANE HAD ARRIVED, HE WOULD HAVE
  • 00:25:04.180 --> 00:25:09.080
  • BEEN ON THAT PLANE WITHOUT THAT ZMAPP.
  • 00:25:09.100 --> 00:25:11.070
  • HE WOULD HAVE DIED ON THE WAY HOME.
  • 00:25:11.090 --> 00:25:15.020
  • HE WOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD.
  • 00:25:15.040 --> 00:25:17.110
  • SO LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, GOD ANSWERS
  • 00:25:17.130 --> 00:25:21.220
  • PRAYERS. HE DOESN'T ALWAYS ANSWER IT NECESSARILY
  • 00:25:21.240 --> 00:25:24.090
  • THE WAY WE THINK.
  • 00:25:24.110 --> 00:25:25.140
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:25:25.160 --> 00:25:26.260
  • GOD GIVES US FREE WILL BUT LIFE GOES ON.
  • 00:25:26.280 --> 00:25:30.250
  • SICKNESS WILL CONTINUE IN THIS WORLD, DISEASE HAS
  • 00:25:30.270 --> 00:25:35.000
  • NOT BEEN ELIMINATED, NOT UNTIL JESUS COMES AGAIN
  • 00:25:35.020 --> 00:25:38.260
  • AND THE WORLD IS CHANGED AND WE ARE ALL CHANGED AS WELL.
  • 00:25:38.280 --> 00:25:42.250
  • - BUT GOD CARES. - HE DOES CARE.
  • 00:25:42.270 --> 00:25:45.100
  • - HE CARES FOR US.
  • 00:25:45.120 --> 00:25:47.030
  • AND YOU TAKE DR. BRANTLY, HERE HE WAS DYING, THE
  • 00:25:47.050 --> 00:25:51.170
  • PLANE HAD TO TURN AROUND AND COME BACK
  • 00:25:51.190 --> 00:25:53.050
  • AND I'M ASKING GOD WHY?
  • 00:25:53.070 --> 00:25:56.070
  • AND GOD IS PROBABLY JUST SAYING FRANKLIN, JUST
  • 00:25:56.090 --> 00:25:58.140
  • SHUT UP AND SIT DOWN. I'M TAKING CARE OF THIS.
  • 00:25:58.160 --> 00:26:03.110
  • BUT WE DIDN'T SEE THAT AT THE TIME.
  • 00:26:03.130 --> 00:26:06.130
  • I SAW THAT DR. BRANTLY IS GONNA DIE AND LORD, WHY?
  • 00:26:06.150 --> 00:26:09.050
  • WE'VE GOT THE AIRPLANE, EMORY UNIVERSITY IS GONNA
  • 00:26:09.070 --> 00:26:11.230
  • TAKE HIM IN ATLANTA, THE PRESIDENT HAS ALLOWED HIM
  • 00:26:11.250 --> 00:26:16.040
  • TO COME BACK WITHOUT A PASSPORT BECAUSE HIS
  • 00:26:16.060 --> 00:26:18.010
  • PASSPORT, WE COULDN'T GET TO IT BECAUSE IT WAS INFECTED.
  • 00:26:18.030 --> 00:26:21.270
  • SO ALL OF THESE THINGS HAD BEEN WORKED OUT AND
  • 00:26:21.290 --> 00:26:24.020
  • NOW THE PLANE CAN'T COME.
  • 00:26:24.040 --> 00:26:26.260
  • BUT GOD KNEW THAT HE NEEDED THAT ZMAPP.
  • 00:26:26.280 --> 00:26:29.040
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:26:29.060 --> 00:26:34.000
  • SO THE PLANE SHOWS UP ON FRIDAY, TAKES HIM BACK TO
  • 00:26:34.020 --> 00:26:42.110
  • THE UNITED STATES TO EMORY UNIVERSITY IN
  • 00:26:42.130 --> 00:26:44.210
  • ATLANTA, AND WHEN HE GETS TO EMERY, THEY OPEN UP
  • 00:26:44.230 --> 00:26:47.190
  • THE AMBULANCE DOOR AND HE WALKS OUT OF THE AMBULANCE.
  • 00:26:47.210 --> 00:26:51.130
  • - OH, MY GOD! LOOK AT GOD! [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:26:51.150 --> 00:26:56.090
  • - HE WALKS OUT.
  • 00:26:56.110 --> 00:26:58.210
  • AND THEN ON NANCY WRITEBOL, AN ASSISTANT,
  • 00:26:58.230 --> 00:27:04.060
  • SHE CAME DOWN AT THE SAME TIME WITH IT.
  • 00:27:04.080 --> 00:27:06.190
  • - WOW, NOW ANOTHER PATIENT.
  • 00:27:06.210 --> 00:27:08.220
  • - SHE WASN'T QUITE AS SICK ON THAT THURSDAY,
  • 00:27:08.240 --> 00:27:12.160
  • BUT WE HAD TWO MORE BAGS AND WE PUT THE TWO BAGS
  • 00:27:12.180 --> 00:27:17.030
  • IN HER, WE BROUGHT KENT BACK, THE PLANE NEEDED 24
  • 00:27:17.050 --> 00:27:20.290
  • HOURS TO TURN AROUND BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO
  • 00:27:21.010 --> 00:27:23.040
  • CLEAN OUT THE AIRPLANE AND DISINFECT IT, AND
  • 00:27:23.060 --> 00:27:26.110
  • THEN THE PLANE WENT BACK TO LIBERIA, PICKED UP
  • 00:27:26.130 --> 00:27:28.280
  • NANCY WRITEBOL AND GOT HER BACK.
  • 00:27:29.000 --> 00:27:31.230
  • NOW WHEN SHE CAME BACK, SHE WAS SICKER.
  • 00:27:31.250 --> 00:27:33.240
  • SHE WAS AN OLDER PERSON THAN KENT, SO SHE DIDN'T
  • 00:27:33.260 --> 00:27:37.070
  • WALK OUT OF THAT AMBULANCE BUT SHE
  • 00:27:37.090 --> 00:27:38.220
  • GOT OUT OF HOSPITAL BEFORE HE DID.
  • 00:27:38.240 --> 00:27:40.170
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:27:40.190 --> 00:27:43.250
  • BUT THIS IS, THIS FILM IS NOT JUST ABOUT NANCY AND
  • 00:27:43.270 --> 00:27:47.250
  • KENT HOW GOD SAVED THEIR LIFE BECAUSE GOD DID SAVE
  • 00:27:47.270 --> 00:27:50.020
  • THEIR LIFE, BUT IT'S ABOUT THE WORKERS, IT'S ABOUT
  • 00:27:50.040 --> 00:27:53.190
  • THE PEOPLE OF LIBERIA, IT'S ABOUT THE SUFFERING
  • 00:27:53.210 --> 00:27:55.250
  • THAT THEY WENT THROUGH, AND WHEN KENT CAME BACK,
  • 00:27:55.270 --> 00:27:58.290
  • HE BECAME THE VOICE FOR THE LIBERIAN PEOPLE.
  • 00:27:59.010 --> 00:28:02.100
  • AND HE BEGAN, HE WENT TO THE UNITED NATIONS,
  • 00:28:02.120 --> 00:28:04.220
  • HE SPOKE BEFORE CONGRESS ASKING FOR HELP, THE
  • 00:28:04.240 --> 00:28:08.040
  • PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT OBAMA BROUGHT HIM TO THE
  • 00:28:08.060 --> 00:28:11.000
  • WHITE HOUSE, HE SPOKE TO THE PRESIDENT, THE
  • 00:28:11.020 --> 00:28:13.250
  • PRESIDENT MADE ALL TYPES OF RESOURCES NOW
  • 00:28:13.270 --> 00:28:16.060
  • AVAILABLE TO THE FIGHT OF EBOLA.
  • 00:28:16.080 --> 00:28:18.160
  • SO WE'RE VERY THANKFUL FOR THAT.
  • 00:28:18.180 --> 00:28:20.080
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:28:20.100 --> 00:28:26.030
  • - ASIDE FROM THESE MIRACLE HEALINGS THAT
  • 00:28:26.050 --> 00:28:29.070
  • HAPPENED, WE LEARNED A LOT ABOUT PEOPLE CARING
  • 00:28:29.090 --> 00:28:34.130
  • FOR PEOPLE AS WELL DURING THIS EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:28:34.150 --> 00:28:40.130
  • WHAT WAS THEIR ROAD TO RECOVERY LIKE?
  • 00:28:40.150 --> 00:28:43.060
  • WAS IT AN EASY PATH? DID THEY STRUGGLE?
  • 00:28:43.080 --> 00:28:48.160
  • HOW DID IT WORK OUT FOR THEM GETTING HOME?
  • 00:28:48.180 --> 00:28:51.280
  • - FIRST OF ALL, LET ME GO BACK.
  • 00:28:52.000 --> 00:28:54.100
  • REMEMBER NO ONE KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT EBOLA.
  • 00:28:54.120 --> 00:28:57.290
  • WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW YOU GOT IT.
  • 00:28:58.010 --> 00:29:00.060
  • - OTHER THAN THE FACT THAT IT KILLS YOU.
  • 00:29:00.080 --> 00:29:01.220
  • - IT KILLS YOU.
  • 00:29:01.240 --> 00:29:03.010
  • WE DIDN'T KNOW IF IT WAS AIRBORNE OR BODILY FLUIDS.
  • 00:29:03.030 --> 00:29:06.030
  • WE SUSPECTED BUT WE DIDN'T QUITE KNOW.
  • 00:29:06.050 --> 00:29:08.200
  • AND THE CDC HERE IN THIS COUNTRY, THEY DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 00:29:08.220 --> 00:29:12.160
  • I CALLED UP THE HEAD OF THE CDC, I SAID I'VE GOT--
  • 00:29:12.180 --> 00:29:15.120
  • - CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL.
  • 00:29:15.140 --> 00:29:17.050
  • - CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL OF ATLANTA.
  • 00:29:17.070 --> 00:29:19.060
  • I'M BRINGING BACK 24 PEOPLE OF MY STAFF THAT
  • 00:29:19.080 --> 00:29:23.220
  • MIGHT HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO EBOLA.
  • 00:29:23.240 --> 00:29:25.070
  • WHAT DO I DO?
  • 00:29:25.090 --> 00:29:26.240
  • WHAT ARE THE PROTOCOLS FOR BRINGING THEM INTO
  • 00:29:26.260 --> 00:29:28.130
  • THE UNITED STATES TO-- AND I'M WORRIED ABOUT
  • 00:29:28.150 --> 00:29:30.180
  • PROTECTING THE AMERICAN POPULATION.
  • 00:29:30.200 --> 00:29:32.260
  • HOW DO WE PROTECT THEM?
  • 00:29:32.280 --> 00:29:34.230
  • THEY SAID, HE SAID WELL TELL THEM TO GO HOME AND
  • 00:29:34.250 --> 00:29:37.070
  • TAKE THEIR TEMPERATURE TWICE A DAY, AND IF THEY
  • 00:29:37.090 --> 00:29:41.210
  • GET A SPIKE IN THEIR TEMPERATURE, TELL THEM TO
  • 00:29:41.230 --> 00:29:43.190
  • GO TO THE LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT.
  • 00:29:43.210 --> 00:29:46.100
  • I THOUGHT IF SOMEONE WHERE I LIVE IN BOONE,
  • 00:29:46.120 --> 00:29:49.080
  • NORTH CAROLINA, AND YOU GO TO OUR LOCAL HEALTH
  • 00:29:49.100 --> 00:29:51.220
  • DEPARTMENT AND SAID HEY, I THINK I GOT EBOLA,
  • 00:29:51.240 --> 00:29:53.160
  • THEY'RE GONNA RUN OUT THE BACK DOOR.
  • 00:29:53.180 --> 00:29:56.240
  • AND THEN THEY'RE GONNA CALL THE SWAT TEAM.
  • 00:29:56.260 --> 00:29:59.290
  • SO OUR COUNTRY WAS NOT PREPARED FOR THIS.
  • 00:30:00.010 --> 00:30:04.100
  • AND WHEN DR. BRANTLY CAME BACK, ALL OF A SUDDEN THE
  • 00:30:04.120 --> 00:30:08.180
  • UNITED STATES REALIZED OUR GOVERNMENT REALIZED
  • 00:30:08.200 --> 00:30:10.290
  • WE WERE NOT PREPARED FOR ANY TYPE OF INFECTION
  • 00:30:11.010 --> 00:30:13.140
  • LIKE THIS. AND SO ALL OF OUR HOSPITALS ACROSS THE
  • 00:30:13.160 --> 00:30:16.080
  • COUNTRY CHANGED THEIR PROTOCOLS, UPGRADED THEIR
  • 00:30:16.100 --> 00:30:19.240
  • FACILITIES TO DEAL WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
  • 00:30:19.260 --> 00:30:22.020
  • WE ARE MUCH BETTER PREPARED TODAY
  • 00:30:22.040 --> 00:30:23.250
  • THAN WE WERE BACK THEN.
  • 00:30:23.270 --> 00:30:25.130
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:30:25.150 --> 00:30:32.150
  • - LET ME ASK YOU AFTER THAT MIRACULOUS OUTCOME,
  • 00:30:32.170 --> 00:30:37.150
  • I KNOW WE'VE SEEN IN MINISTRY WE'VE SEEN GOD
  • 00:30:37.170 --> 00:30:41.030
  • WORK MIRACLES OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
  • 00:30:41.050 --> 00:30:44.130
  • I WISH EVERYONE KNEW WITH THE SAME SURETY THAT YOU
  • 00:30:44.150 --> 00:30:49.290
  • AND I HAVE OF GOD'S MIRACLE WORKING POWER.
  • 00:30:50.010 --> 00:30:54.250
  • I WISH EVERYONE UNDERSTOOD THAT AS CLEARLY.
  • 00:30:54.270 --> 00:30:58.120
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:30:58.140 --> 00:31:01.240
  • IT TOOK ME MORE THAN 35 YEARS BEFORE
  • 00:31:01.260 --> 00:31:04.100
  • I CAME TO THE LORD.
  • 00:31:04.120 --> 00:31:06.070
  • I WAS ON THE WILD.
  • 00:31:06.090 --> 00:31:09.070
  • AND THEN I PRESENTED GOD WITH WHAT TO ME WAS THE
  • 00:31:09.090 --> 00:31:15.020
  • MOST DIFFICULT PROBLEM OF ALL. ME.
  • 00:31:15.040 --> 00:31:22.090
  • AND I SAID WELL, I'LL GIVE YOU AN HOUR OR TWO.
  • 00:31:22.110 --> 00:31:25.270
  • I CAN'T EVEN GIVE YOU A DAY BECAUSE I MAY
  • 00:31:25.290 --> 00:31:28.180
  • NEED TO GO GET ME A FIX.
  • 00:31:28.200 --> 00:31:31.290
  • BUT I'LL GIVE YOU AN HOUR.
  • 00:31:32.010 --> 00:31:35.200
  • GOD TOOK THAT HOUR AND IT TURNED IT INTO
  • 00:31:35.220 --> 00:31:37.210
  • 35 YEARS CLEAN.
  • 00:31:37.230 --> 00:31:39.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:31:39.180 --> 00:31:43.270
  • SO I KNOW FIRSTHAND THE MIRACLE WORKING POWER OF
  • 00:31:43.290 --> 00:31:49.150
  • GOD, BUT AT THE SAME TIME FRANKLIN, I ALSO KNOW
  • 00:31:49.170 --> 00:31:53.080
  • THAT GOD DOESN'T ALWAYS ANSWER OUR HEALING
  • 00:31:53.100 --> 00:31:57.230
  • PRAYERS IN THE AFFIRMATIVE.
  • 00:31:57.250 --> 00:32:00.280
  • JUST ONE MONTH AGO, MY AGENT, ONE OF MY AGENTS
  • 00:32:01.000 --> 00:32:06.230
  • WHO IS A 53 YEAR OLD WOMAN DISCOVERED SHE HAD
  • 00:32:06.250 --> 00:32:11.070
  • CANCER IN OCTOBER, NOVEMBER.
  • 00:32:11.090 --> 00:32:14.110
  • AND BY MID TO LATE JANUARY, IN SPITE OF ALL
  • 00:32:14.130 --> 00:32:19.090
  • OUR PRAYERS, ALL THE TREATMENT, CHEMO THERAPY,
  • 00:32:19.110 --> 00:32:23.100
  • SHE PASSED AWAY JUST A FEW MONTHS.
  • 00:32:23.120 --> 00:32:26.260
  • AND SHE WAS SO YOUNG AND ONE OF THE SWEETEST
  • 00:32:26.280 --> 00:32:28.290
  • PEOPLE ON THE PLANET.
  • 00:32:29.010 --> 00:32:31.070
  • AND SO OF COURSE, WE QUESTIONED THE LORD.
  • 00:32:31.090 --> 00:32:33.220
  • WE SAID LORD, WHY?
  • 00:32:33.240 --> 00:32:35.040
  • WHY WOULD YOU ALLOW THIS?
  • 00:32:35.060 --> 00:32:37.000
  • AND GOD SPOKE INTO MY SPIRIT AND HE SAID SHE'S
  • 00:32:37.020 --> 00:32:40.060
  • RESTING. SHE'S RESTING NOW. HER WORK IS OVER.
  • 00:32:40.080 --> 00:32:44.190
  • SHE'S GOT IT BETTER THAN YOU RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:32:44.210 --> 00:32:48.000
  • AND I JUST HAVE TO TRUST GOD ALL THE WAY.
  • 00:32:48.020 --> 00:32:55.070
  • - YOU KNOW SOMETIMES LIKE IN DR. BRANTLY'S
  • 00:32:55.090 --> 00:32:58.180
  • CASE, GOD USED DR. BRANTLY TO GET THE
  • 00:32:58.200 --> 00:33:02.190
  • ATTENTION OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:33:02.210 --> 00:33:05.030
  • GOD USED DR. BRANTLY AND NANCY WRITEBOL TO SHINE A
  • 00:33:05.050 --> 00:33:08.250
  • SPOTLIGHT ON THE PEOPLE THAT WERE DYING IN
  • 00:33:08.270 --> 00:33:11.160
  • LIBERIA AND THE WORLD WAS IGNORING THEM.
  • 00:33:11.180 --> 00:33:15.000
  • THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT WAS IGNORING
  • 00:33:15.020 --> 00:33:16.250
  • LIBERIA AND GUINEA AND SIERRA LEONE,
  • 00:33:16.270 --> 00:33:19.080
  • SO WAS THE EUROPEAN UNION.
  • 00:33:19.100 --> 00:33:21.250
  • NOBODY WAS PAYING ATTENTION TO THEM UNTIL
  • 00:33:21.270 --> 00:33:23.190
  • DR. BRANTLY, AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN
  • 00:33:23.210 --> 00:33:25.140
  • IT WOKE AMERICA UP.
  • 00:33:25.160 --> 00:33:27.170
  • AND THE ADMINISTRATION WENT INTO OVERDRIVE.
  • 00:33:27.190 --> 00:33:31.100
  • AND SO IT WASN'T JUST SAVING THE LIVES OF
  • 00:33:31.120 --> 00:33:33.110
  • DR. BRANTLY, BUT THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF
  • 00:33:33.130 --> 00:33:36.090

  • AND I GOT A PHONE CALL BACK IN DECEMBER AND I

  • WAS IN BURMA, AND ONE OF MY GUYS CALLED AND SAID
  • 00:35:27.260 --> 00:35:32.200
  • FRANKLIN, WE'VE BEEN ASKED BY THE U.N. IF WE

  • WOULD BE WILLING TO PUT ONE OF OUR HOSPITALS RIGHT
  • 00:35:36.060 --> 00:35:38.100
  • OUTSIDE OF MOSUL IN IRAQ BECAUSE THE IRAQI ARMY
  • 00:35:38.120 --> 00:35:41.190
  • WAS GONNA TAKE MOSUL BACK FROM ISIS, AND THERE'S NO
  • 00:35:41.210 --> 00:35:45.250
  • HOSPITAL. ALL THE HOSPITALS HAVE BEEN DESTROYED.
  • 00:35:45.270 --> 00:35:48.140
  • YEAH. WE'LL DO THAT.
  • 00:35:48.160 --> 00:35:51.190

  • MOSUL, WE'RE IN A WAR ZONE.
  • 00:36:09.140 --> 00:36:11.090
  • ELEVEN MILES FROM THE MOST EVIL GROUP OF PEOPLE

  • IN THE WORLD IS ISIS.
  • 00:36:15.030 --> 00:36:16.220
  • I DON'T KNOW OF ANYBODY MORE EVIL THAN ISIS.
  • 00:36:16.240 --> 00:36:18.280
  • WE HAD TO PUT INFRASTRUCTURE IN THAT
  • 00:36:19.000 --> 00:36:23.190
  • WE WERE NOT PREPARED TO PUT IN.
  • 00:36:23.210 --> 00:36:25.190
  • FIRST OF ALL IT RAINED AND THE GROUND OVER THERE
  • 00:36:25.210 --> 00:36:27.240
  • TURNS TO MUD SO YOU HAVE TO MAKE A HUGE GRAVEL PAD.
  • 00:36:27.260 --> 00:36:31.110
  • THEN BECAUSE IT'S A WAR ZONE, WE HAVE TO PUT A
  • 00:36:31.130 --> 00:36:35.000
  • BLAST WALL, A CEMENT WALL THAT'S FIFTEEN FEET, IT
  • 00:36:35.020 --> 00:36:38.130
  • WOULD BE AS HIGH AS THESE LIGHTS HERE, FIFTEEN FEET
  • 00:36:38.150 --> 00:36:42.010
  • TALL, MADE OUT OF CONCRETE SECTIONS, EACH
  • 00:36:42.030 --> 00:36:44.270
  • ONE WEIGHS FIVE TONS, AND YOU HAVE TO SURROUND YOUR
  • 00:36:44.290 --> 00:36:48.180
  • ENTIRE HOSPITAL PERIMETER WITH THIS BLAST WALL TO
  • 00:36:48.200 --> 00:36:51.180
  • KEEP A CAR BOMB FROM COMING IN AND BLOWING
  • 00:36:51.200 --> 00:36:53.280
  • EVERYBODY UP. WE GOT THE BLAST WALL IN.
  • 00:36:54.000 --> 00:36:58.130
  • THEN WE HAVE TO PUT THE CONEX, THESE ARE LIKE
  • 00:36:58.150 --> 00:37:00.240
  • TRAILERS THAT YOUR STAFF LIVE IN.
  • 00:37:00.260 --> 00:37:02.280
  • WE HAVE SIXTY DOCTORS AND NURSES THAT WORK THERE.
  • 00:37:03.000 --> 00:37:06.270
  • SO YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE WOMEN'S DORMITORIES, THE
  • 00:37:06.290 --> 00:37:10.090
  • MEN DORMITORIES, YOU HAVE TO HAVE A WASH HOUSE
  • 00:37:10.110 --> 00:37:12.230
  • FOR THE WOMEN AND FOR THE GUYS AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:37:12.250 --> 00:37:15.190
  • A COMMON EATING AREA.
  • 00:37:15.210 --> 00:37:18.120
  • NOW YOU'VE GOT YOUR HOSPITAL.
  • 00:37:18.140 --> 00:37:20.130
  • IT'S GONNA HAVE PATIENTS IN IT BUT HAVE YOU TO BE
  • 00:37:20.150 --> 00:37:22.100
  • ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR STAFF AT THE SAME TIME.
  • 00:37:22.120 --> 00:37:24.050
  • NOW THAT TOOK US A MONTH TO PUT UP SO IT WAS
  • 00:37:24.070 --> 00:37:27.020
  • JANUARY ABOUT THE FOURTH OR FIFTH BEFORE
  • 00:37:27.040 --> 00:37:30.130
  • WE WERE ABLE TO OPEN THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:37:30.150 --> 00:37:32.070
  • - WE HAVE A CLIP ABOUT THAT HOSPITAL IN IRAQ.
  • 00:37:32.090 --> 00:37:35.040
  • I WONDER IF WE COULD ROLL IT NOW. THANK YOU.
  • 00:37:35.060 --> 00:37:37.160
  • - IT'S LIKE A BLACK CLOUD JUST LIKE
  • 00:37:40.140 --> 00:37:43.080
  • SUDDENLY BLIND THE SUN.
  • 00:37:43.100 --> 00:37:48.010
  • THE ISLAMIC STATE BURNED SCHOOLS,
  • 00:37:48.150 --> 00:37:51.060
  • CHURCHES, HOSPITALS.
  • 00:37:51.080 --> 00:37:55.150
  • YOUR LIFE IS CONNECTED TO YOUR HOUSE AND WHEN THEY
  • 00:37:56.010 --> 00:37:58.140
  • BURN YOUR HOUSE, THEY BURNED YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:37:58.160 --> 00:38:00.020
  • THEY BURNED YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:38:00.040 --> 00:38:02.180
  • SUDDENLY YOU FIND YOURSELF IN NIGHTMARE.
  • 00:38:03.090 --> 00:38:07.100
  • - RIGHT NOW IN MOSUL THERE IS INTENSE FIGHTING
  • 00:38:10.240 --> 00:38:13.130
  • BETWEEN IRAQI SECURITY FORCES AND COALITION
  • 00:38:13.150 --> 00:38:16.000
  • FORCES AND ISIS CLINGING ONTO THEIR STRONGHOLD.
  • 00:38:16.020 --> 00:38:20.100
  • CIVILIANS ARE REALLY CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE.
  • 00:38:20.120 --> 00:38:21.260
  • ANY LINE THAT IS BETWEEN THE MILITARY LIFE AND
  • 00:38:21.280 --> 00:38:23.250
  • CIVILIAN LIFE HAS BEEN ERASED.
  • 00:38:23.270 --> 00:38:26.110
  • - I DON'T THINK THERE'S ENOUGH WORDS IN THE ENGLISH
  • 00:38:26.130 --> 00:38:28.060
  • LANGUAGE TO DESCRIBE THE HELL THAT THESE PEOPLE
  • 00:38:28.080 --> 00:38:31.020
  • HAVE HAD TO LIVE THROUGH AND AS THEY TRY TO FLEE
  • 00:38:31.040 --> 00:38:34.020
  • THE FIGHTING, ISIS IS TARGETING CIVILIANS,
  • 00:38:34.040 --> 00:38:37.050
  • WOMEN, CHILDREN.
  • 00:38:37.070 --> 00:38:39.150
  • ISIS HAS BOOBY-TRAPPED HOMES AND PUT BOMBS UNDER
  • 00:38:39.170 --> 00:38:42.160
  • THE COMPUTER OR COFFEE POT AND A PERSON PICKS IT
  • 00:38:42.180 --> 00:38:45.180
  • UP AND IT EXPLODES IN THEIR FACE.
  • 00:38:45.200 --> 00:38:48.190
  • - AT OUR HOSPITAL, WE ARE RECEIVING ALL SORTS
  • 00:38:50.130 --> 00:38:52.250
  • OF WOUNDED FROM THE FIGHTING THAT IS
  • 00:38:52.270 --> 00:38:54.230
  • HAPPENING IN MOSUL.
  • 00:38:54.250 --> 00:38:56.090
  • OUR DAYS ARE OFTEN PEPPERED WITH THE SOUNDS
  • 00:38:56.110 --> 00:38:57.260
  • OF BOMBS AND SHELLING.
  • 00:38:57.280 --> 00:39:00.230
  • - THIS IS NOT SAFE. THIS IS A WAR ZONE.
  • 00:39:00.250 --> 00:39:02.190
  • ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN.
  • 00:39:02.210 --> 00:39:04.070
  • I THINK WE'RE SUPPOSED TO GO WHERE JESUS LEADS US,
  • 00:39:04.090 --> 00:39:07.120
  • EVEN IF IT'S IN A DANGEROUS PLACE.
  • 00:39:07.140 --> 00:39:10.180
  • - I PERSONALLY THOUGHT WE WOULD BE SEEING MORE
  • 00:39:10.200 --> 00:39:12.110
  • MILITARY PERSONNEL.
  • 00:39:12.130 --> 00:39:14.070
  • SO FAR THAT'S NOT BEEN THE CASE.
  • 00:39:14.090 --> 00:39:16.100
  • UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE SEEING ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY
  • 00:39:16.120 --> 00:39:19.100
  • WOMEN AND CHILDREN.
  • 00:39:19.120 --> 00:39:24.180
  • - LAST NIGHT WE HAD A FAMILY OF FOUR COME IN
  • 00:39:24.200 --> 00:39:26.260
  • ENTERING WEST MOSUL FIVE DAYS BEFORE
  • 00:39:26.280 --> 00:39:29.210
  • THEY ARRIVED WITH US.
  • 00:39:29.230 --> 00:39:31.170
  • FIVE OF THEIR CHILDREN HAD BEEN KILLED INSTANTLY.
  • 00:39:31.190 --> 00:39:34.150
  • THE BABY HAD VERY, VERY SEVERE FACIAL BURNS, SO SHE
  • 00:39:34.170 --> 00:39:37.040
  • REQUIRED A LOT OF WORK, AND WE COULDN'T HAVE HER
  • 00:39:37.060 --> 00:39:40.050
  • TOUCHING HER FACE OR MOVING HER FACE AROUND.
  • 00:39:40.070 --> 00:39:43.070
  • SO WE DECIDED THAT THE MORE COMPASSIONATE THING TO DO
  • 00:39:43.090 --> 00:39:45.280
  • WAS TO SWADDLE HER AND JUST CUDDLE HER ALL NIGHT,
  • 00:39:46.000 --> 00:39:48.030
  • JUST KEEP HER COMFORTED.
  • 00:39:48.050 --> 00:39:50.030
  • IF HER MOTHER WAS THERE, THEN SHE WOULD BE DOING
  • 00:39:50.050 --> 00:39:51.200
  • THE SAME THING.
  • 00:39:51.220 --> 00:39:54.260
  • NO CHILD SHOULD GROW UP IN THIS ENVIRONMENT WHERE WAR
  • 00:39:56.000 --> 00:39:59.140
  • AND DEATH IS NORMAL.
  • 00:39:59.160 --> 00:40:01.130
  • - I'VE DEALT WITH TRAUMA FOR 25 YEARS...
  • 00:40:02.290 --> 00:40:06.080
  • [HOLDING BACK TEARS]
  • 00:40:06.100 --> 00:40:09.010
  • BUT I'M TELLING YOU, DEALING WITH THE CHILDREN IS
  • 00:40:09.030 --> 00:40:16.120
  • EXTREMELY DIFFICULT.
  • 00:40:16.140 --> 00:40:19.090
  • THEY'RE PURE INNOCENCE, AND THIS PURE EVIL WAS BEING
  • 00:40:19.110 --> 00:40:22.250
  • DONE TO THEM.
  • 00:40:22.270 --> 00:40:25.110
  • - WE TREAT ANYBODY WHO COMES TO OUR DOORS.
  • 00:40:29.290 --> 00:40:32.260
  • WE HAVE TREATED WOMEN, CHILDREN, KNOWN ISIS SOLDIERS.
  • 00:40:32.280 --> 00:40:39.160
  • WE'VE TREATED IRAQI SOLDIERS WHO ARE FIGHTING AGAINST
  • 00:40:39.180 --> 00:40:42.120
  • ISIS BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY PERSON IS AN IMAGE
  • 00:40:42.140 --> 00:40:47.060
  • BEARER OF GOD, AND BECAUSE OF THAT, THEY HAVE VALUE.
  • 00:40:47.080 --> 00:40:53.240
  • IT'S UGLY WHAT WE SEE HERE, ABSOLUTELY HORRIFYING, BUT
  • 00:40:57.290 --> 00:41:01.070
  • THERE IS BEAUTY IN IT, TOO, AS WE SEE GOD START TO
  • 00:41:01.090 --> 00:41:04.090
  • REDEEM TRAGEDY IN PEOPLE'S LIVES.
  • 00:41:04.110 --> 00:41:07.040
  • - A LOT OF CHRISTIANS SEEM TO THINK THAT THEIR
  • 00:41:08.150 --> 00:41:11.010
  • CHRISTIANITY STOPS AT THE PAVED ROAD.
  • 00:41:11.030 --> 00:41:14.050
  • THIS IS NOT THE PAVED ROAD.
  • 00:41:14.070 --> 00:41:16.020
  • THIS IS FAR, FAR AWAY, AND THANK GOD THAT SAMARITAN'S
  • 00:41:16.040 --> 00:41:19.160
  • PURSE IS WILLING TO GET OFF THE PAVED ROAD AND GO WHERE
  • 00:41:19.180 --> 00:41:22.080
  • THE NEEDS ARE REALLY GREAT.
  • 00:41:22.100 --> 00:41:25.110
  • - WE NEED TRAUMA DOCTORS AND NURSES.
  • 00:41:25.130 --> 00:41:28.220
  • WE NEED MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE WILLING TO COME AND WORK
  • 00:41:28.240 --> 00:41:31.180
  • AND SERVE.
  • 00:41:31.200 --> 00:41:33.050
  • JUST GO TO OUR WEB SITE AND SEE HOW YOU CAN BE INVOLVED.
  • 00:41:33.070 --> 00:41:34.290
  • GOD BLESS YOU, THANK YOU.
  • 00:41:35.010 --> 00:41:36.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:41:36.180 --> 00:41:40.220
  • - I HAD A PROFESSOR IN THE SEMINARY WHO ANSWERED
  • 00:41:40.240 --> 00:41:47.090
  • SOMEONE'S QUESTION AS TO WHO SHOULD WE SAVE FIRST?
  • 00:41:47.110 --> 00:41:56.110
  • AND HE SAID ANYONE FOR WHOM CHRIST DIED, WHICH MEANS
  • 00:41:56.130 --> 00:42:01.170
  • EVERYONE, WHICH IS WHAT YOU DO WITH THAT
  • 00:42:01.190 --> 00:42:05.010
  • HOSPITAL IN IRAQ. GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:42:05.030 --> 00:42:07.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:42:07.280 --> 00:42:18.030
  • - MOSUL IN THE BIBLE IS NINEVEH, AND REMEMBER THE
  • 00:42:18.050 --> 00:42:22.190
  • PROPHET JONAH WAS SENT TO WARN NINEVEH,
  • 00:42:22.210 --> 00:42:26.060
  • AND THEY REPENTED.
  • 00:42:26.080 --> 00:42:28.000
  • AND SO MOSUL IS THE BIBLICAL CITY OF NINEVEH, AND WE'RE
  • 00:42:28.020 --> 00:42:32.230
  • JUST, AGAIN, 11 MILES OUTSIDE OF THIS.
  • 00:42:32.250 --> 00:42:35.080
  • BUT TWO YEARS AGO, ISIS TOOK THIS CITY, AND THEY STARTED
  • 00:42:35.100 --> 00:42:38.030
  • CHOPPING THE HEADS OFF CHRISTIANS, BURNING CHURCHES.
  • 00:42:38.050 --> 00:42:43.200
  • IF A PERSON IS CAUGHT WITH A CELL PHONE, THEY KILL THEM.
  • 00:42:43.220 --> 00:42:47.060
  • IF A PERSON HAS WATCHED A WESTERN MOVIE -- WHEN I SAY
  • 00:42:47.080 --> 00:42:51.010
  • A WESTERN, I MEAN AN AMERICAN-TYPE MOVIE --
  • 00:42:51.030 --> 00:42:53.110
  • THEY WILL KILL THEM.
  • 00:42:53.130 --> 00:42:55.170
  • AND WHAT THEY DO IS NOT -- GAY AND LESBIAN PEOPLE, THEY
  • 00:42:55.190 --> 00:43:00.230
  • TORTURE THEM AND CUT OFF BODY PARTS, AND THEN THEY'LL
  • 00:43:00.250 --> 00:43:03.230
  • TAKE THEM TO A ROOF AND JUST PUSH THEM OFF THE ROOF.
  • 00:43:03.250 --> 00:43:06.180
  • THIS IS THE MOST EVIL GROUP OF PEOPLE I BELIEVE ON FACE
  • 00:43:06.200 --> 00:43:09.050
  • OF THE EARTH, BUT WHEN THEY COME TO THAT HOSPITAL, WE
  • 00:43:09.070 --> 00:43:11.290
  • GET SOME OF THESE ISIS SOLDIERS, AND WE TAKE CARE
  • 00:43:12.010 --> 00:43:15.260
  • OF THEM JUST LIKE WE WOULD ANYBODY ELSE, BUT WHEN THEY
  • 00:43:15.280 --> 00:43:19.280
  • LEAVE THE HOSPITAL, WE DON'T TURN THEM LOOSE.
  • 00:43:20.000 --> 00:43:23.140
  • WE GIVE THEM TO THE IRAQI ARMY, AND WHAT THE IRAQI
  • 00:43:23.160 --> 00:43:26.130
  • ARMY DOES WITH THEM, I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:43:26.150 --> 00:43:27.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:43:27.290 --> 00:43:33.080
  • - AND THAT'S NOT YOUR SPIRITUAL RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:43:33.100 --> 00:43:34.270
  • EITHER, IS IT?
  • 00:43:34.290 --> 00:43:36.110
  • - IT'S NOT.
  • 00:43:36.130 --> 00:43:37.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:43:37.280 --> 00:43:41.000
  • - I DON'T HAVE A HEAVEN OR A HELL FOR THEM.
  • 00:43:41.020 --> 00:43:44.240
  • I DID WHAT GOD TOLD ME TO DO, AND THAT'S WHAT YOU DID.
  • 00:43:44.260 --> 00:43:47.250
  • THAT'S WONDERFUL.
  • 00:43:47.270 --> 00:43:49.100
  • NOW, WE HAVE A FEW MINUTES, BUT I WANT TO TALK A LITTLE
  • 00:43:49.120 --> 00:43:52.000
  • BIT ABOUT HOW YOU HAVE DETERMINED AND HOW WE CAN
  • 00:43:52.020 --> 00:43:55.280
  • EASILY SEE THAT THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH
  • 00:43:56.000 --> 00:43:59.000
  • IS BEING PERSECUTED.
  • 00:43:59.020 --> 00:44:00.080
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:44:00.100 --> 00:44:01.150
  • - WORLDWIDE. - WORLDWIDE.
  • 00:44:01.170 --> 00:44:02.260
  • - WOULD YOU ADDRESS THAT ISSUE FOR A MOMENT OR TWO?
  • 00:44:02.280 --> 00:44:05.100
  • - WELL, WE'VE GOT A SUMMIT IN WASHINGTON D.C.
  • 00:44:05.120 --> 00:44:09.040
  • THAT WE'RE HOLDING THIS MAY, 10-13 OF MAY, AND WE'RE
  • 00:44:09.060 --> 00:44:16.140
  • BRINGING IN 600 DELEGATES IN FROM 130 COUNTRIES BECAUSE I
  • 00:44:16.160 --> 00:44:21.190
  • WANT TO PUT A SPOTLIGHT ON THE SUFFERING OF
  • 00:44:21.210 --> 00:44:23.220
  • THE CHURCH WORLDWIDE.
  • 00:44:23.240 --> 00:44:25.120
  • THESE DELEGATES ARE COMING OUT OF AFRICA.
  • 00:44:25.140 --> 00:44:27.130
  • THEY'RE COMING OUT OF MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:44:27.150 --> 00:44:29.080
  • THEY'RE COMING OUT OF ASIA, FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD TO
  • 00:44:29.100 --> 00:44:32.230
  • TELL THEIR STORY OF HOW THEY HAVE BEEN PERSECUTED FOR
  • 00:44:32.250 --> 00:44:37.000
  • THEIR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:44:37.020 --> 00:44:38.240
  • AND THERE'S PERSECUTION RIGHT HERE IN THIS COUNTRY.
  • 00:44:38.260 --> 00:44:41.190
  • THERE ARE CHRISTIANS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT OUT OF
  • 00:44:41.210 --> 00:44:43.260
  • BUSINESS BECAUSE THEY WOULDN'T GO ALONG WITH A
  • 00:44:43.280 --> 00:44:46.170
  • CERTAIN GROUP OF PEOPLE, AND THEY'VE BEEN FORCED OUT OF
  • 00:44:46.190 --> 00:44:49.040
  • THE BUSINESS BECAUSE OF THEIR FAITH.
  • 00:44:49.060 --> 00:44:52.130
  • AND WHAT I WANT TO DO IS PUT A SPOTLIGHT,
  • 00:44:52.150 --> 00:44:55.110
  • SO WE'RE DOING THIS.
  • 00:44:55.130 --> 00:44:56.240
  • IT'S CALLED THE WORLD SUMMIT FOR THE PERSECUTED
  • 00:44:56.260 --> 00:45:00.190
  • CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:45:00.210 --> 00:45:02.020
  • WE'RE DOING THIS IN WASHINGTON D.C.
  • 00:45:02.040 --> 00:45:03.240
  • BECAUSE I WANT THE POLITICIANS TO SEE IT.
  • 00:45:03.260 --> 00:45:06.060
  • I WANT TO GET SOME OF THESE POLITICIANS DOWN THERE.
  • 00:45:06.080 --> 00:45:08.220
  • I WANT TO GET THE PRESIDENT DOWN THERE.
  • 00:45:08.240 --> 00:45:10.060
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:45:10.080 --> 00:45:12.030
  • - WE'VE GOT A VIDEO CLIP THAT DESCRIBES THIS SUMMIT.
  • 00:45:12.050 --> 00:45:14.150
  • WHY DON'T WE TAKE A LOOK AT IT?
  • 00:45:14.170 --> 00:45:17.060
  • - CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION IS ON THE RISE
  • 00:45:17.080 --> 00:45:19.030
  • AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:45:19.050 --> 00:45:20.160
  • - 125.000 CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN FORCED...
  • 00:45:20.180 --> 00:45:23.090
  • - THEY ARE SYSTEMATICALLY BEHEADING CHILDREN.
  • 00:45:23.110 --> 00:45:26.050
  • - CHRISTIANS ARE FACING PERSECUTION.
  • 00:45:26.070 --> 00:45:28.290
  • - IT IS, IN FACT, A GENOCIDE THAT'S GOING ON.
  • 00:45:29.010 --> 00:45:31.160
  • [INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]
  • 00:45:31.180 --> 00:45:35.060
  • - ONE TIME THEY BLOW UP MY CHURCH.
  • 00:45:35.080 --> 00:45:38.060
  • - WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
  • 00:45:38.080 --> 00:45:41.060
  • - THERE IS ANOTHER PERSON DYING FOR THE
  • 00:45:41.080 --> 00:45:42.280
  • SAKE OF CHRIST.
  • 00:45:43.000 --> 00:45:46.010
  • - IT MOTIVATES ME TO HELP MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN
  • 00:45:47.250 --> 00:45:49.290
  • THE FAITH AROUND THE WORLD THAT ARE SUFFERING
  • 00:45:50.010 --> 00:45:51.250
  • INCREDIBLE PERSECUTION.
  • 00:45:51.270 --> 00:45:54.150
  • - I WANT THE PEOPLE TO SPEAK OUT.
  • 00:45:55.180 --> 00:45:57.150
  • SAVE MY PEOPLE.
  • 00:45:57.170 --> 00:46:01.030
  • - HE SAID, YOU WILL BE PERSECUTED, BUT I WILL
  • 00:46:01.050 --> 00:46:04.080
  • BE WITH YOU ALWAYS.
  • 00:46:04.100 --> 00:46:06.280
  • - THEY'RE DYING WITH A KNIFE AT THEIR THROAT, AND THEY'RE REFUSING TO DENY JESUS.
  • 00:46:07.000 --> 00:46:11.160
  • - EXCELLENT.
  • 00:46:17.020 --> 00:46:18.150
  • MAY 10-13 IN WASHINGTON D.C.
  • 00:46:18.170 --> 00:46:22.160
  • THIS PERSECUTION IS A HORRIBLE THING, BUT ISN'T IT
  • 00:46:22.180 --> 00:46:25.120
  • PREDICTED IN SCRIPTURE?
  • 00:46:25.140 --> 00:46:27.100
  • - NO QUESTION.
  • 00:46:27.120 --> 00:46:28.210
  • JESUS SAID, IF THEY DID THIS TO ME, WHAT DO YOU THINK
  • 00:46:28.230 --> 00:46:31.200
  • THEY'RE GOING TO DO TO YOU?
  • 00:46:31.220 --> 00:46:34.050
  • AND SO MANY PEOPLE THINK THAT AS A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:46:34.070 --> 00:46:37.050
  • WE ARE PROTECTED.
  • 00:46:37.070 --> 00:46:40.170
  • WE ARE TO A DEGREE, BUT YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND AND LOOK
  • 00:46:40.190 --> 00:46:44.010
  • AT WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR LORD.
  • 00:46:44.030 --> 00:46:46.040
  • THEY STRIPPED HIM. THEY BEAT HIM. THEY CURSED HIM.
  • 00:46:46.060 --> 00:46:49.230
  • THEY NAILED HIM TO A TREE.
  • 00:46:49.250 --> 00:46:51.270
  • HE NEVER HURT ANYBODY.
  • 00:46:51.290 --> 00:46:54.060
  • HE SAVED PEOPLE'S LIVES, BUT THE REASON CHRIST CAME TO
  • 00:46:54.080 --> 00:46:56.280
  • THIS EARTH WAS NOT TO GIVE US A BETTER LIFE, BUT HE
  • 00:46:57.000 --> 00:47:00.220
  • CAME TO GIVE US ETERNAL LIFE, AND HE CAME
  • 00:47:00.240 --> 00:47:03.250
  • BY TAKING OUR SINS.
  • 00:47:03.270 --> 00:47:05.170
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:47:05.190 --> 00:47:09.180
  • JESUS CHRIST, WHEN HE HUNG ON THAT CROSS, AND HE WAS
  • 00:47:09.200 --> 00:47:14.050
  • NAILED TO THAT CROSS, AND HE WAS BEATEN, GOD POURED UPON
  • 00:47:14.070 --> 00:47:19.010
  • HIM ALL THE SINS PAST, ALL THE SINS PRESENT, WHICH WAS
  • 00:47:19.030 --> 00:47:24.220
  • THAT DAY, ALL THE SINS FUTURE, WHICH IS US.
  • 00:47:24.240 --> 00:47:28.070
  • AND WHEN JESUS CHRIST HUNG ON THAT CROSS, GOD TURNED
  • 00:47:28.090 --> 00:47:32.100
  • HIS BACK ON HIS SON BECAUSE OF THE SIN THAT HE BORE ON
  • 00:47:32.120 --> 00:47:36.180
  • HIS OWN BODY, AND HE DIED ON THAT CROSS, AND HE TOOK OUR
  • 00:47:36.200 --> 00:47:39.230
  • SINS TO THE GRAVE.
  • 00:47:39.250 --> 00:47:42.020
  • HE WAS BURIED FOR OUR SINS, BUT ON THE THIRD DAY, GOD
  • 00:47:42.040 --> 00:47:44.200
  • SAID, IT'S ENOUGH.
  • 00:47:44.220 --> 00:47:46.110
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:47:46.130 --> 00:47:48.140
  • THIRD DAY HE RAISED HIS SON TO LIFE.
  • 00:47:48.160 --> 00:47:52.050
  • JESUS CHRIST CAME TRIUMPHANT OUT OF THE GRAVE, AND FOR
  • 00:47:52.070 --> 00:47:57.140
  • ALL OF US THAT PUT OUR FAITH AND TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:47:57.160 --> 00:48:00.180
  • WE KNOW THAT OUR SINS WILL BE FORGIVEN, AND THAT WHEN
  • 00:48:00.200 --> 00:48:04.060
  • THIS PHYSICAL BODY OF OURS CEASES TO EXIST ANYMORE, GOD
  • 00:48:04.080 --> 00:48:09.250
  • USES DEATH TO TRANSPORT US FROM THIS LIFE INTO
  • 00:48:09.270 --> 00:48:12.260
  • ETERNITY, INTO HIS PRESENCE FOREVER.
  • 00:48:12.280 --> 00:48:15.170
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:48:15.190 --> 00:48:19.050
  • BUT THIS SUMMIT IS TO SHINE A SPOTLIGHT ON WHAT'S
  • 00:48:19.070 --> 00:48:24.060
  • HAPPENING TO THE CHURCH, TO WAKE UP THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:48:24.080 --> 00:48:27.220
  • TO WAKE UP EUROPE, TO WAKE UP THE WORLD BEFORE IT'S TOO
  • 00:48:27.240 --> 00:48:31.120
  • LATE BECAUSE THE CHRISTIANS ARE BEING SLAUGHTERED.
  • 00:48:31.140 --> 00:48:34.010
  • NOW, GOD PREDICTED IT.
  • 00:48:34.030 --> 00:48:36.110
  • JESUS SAID THESE THINGS ARE GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT THAT
  • 00:48:36.130 --> 00:48:38.190
  • DOESN'T MEAN I JUST SIT BACK AND KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT.
  • 00:48:38.210 --> 00:48:41.230
  • REMEMBER IN GERMANY, MANY CHRISTIANS KEPT QUIET AS THE
  • 00:48:41.250 --> 00:48:46.290
  • JEWS WERE BEING SENT TO THE GAS CHAMBERS.
  • 00:48:47.010 --> 00:48:51.080
  • I'M NOT GOING TO SIT BY ON THE SIDELINES AND
  • 00:48:51.100 --> 00:48:53.130
  • JUST BE QUIET.
  • 00:48:53.150 --> 00:48:55.020
  • I WANT TO DO ALL I CAN FOR MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS
  • 00:48:55.040 --> 00:48:57.140
  • AROUND THE WORLD TO PUT A SPOTLIGHT TO TRY
  • 00:48:57.160 --> 00:48:59.210
  • TO GET HELP.
  • 00:48:59.230 --> 00:49:01.150
  • I HOPE THE PRESIDENT WILL COME SPEAK.
  • 00:49:01.170 --> 00:49:03.060
  • I HOPE THE VICE PRESIDENT WILL COME SPEAK.
  • 00:49:03.080 --> 00:49:05.050
  • WE'VE GOT CONGRESSMAN THAT ARE GOING TO COME.
  • 00:49:05.070 --> 00:49:06.200
  • I HOPE THEY WILL COME BECAUSE I WANT THEM TO SEE
  • 00:49:06.220 --> 00:49:09.230
  • AND TO HEAR FOR THEMSELVES WHAT'S HAPPENING TO THE
  • 00:49:09.250 --> 00:49:11.260
  • CHURCH AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:49:11.280 --> 00:49:13.090
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:49:13.110 --> 00:49:18.020
  • - YES, LET ME ASK YOU WHAT ARE SOME PRACTICAL WAYS THAT
  • 00:49:18.040 --> 00:49:22.160
  • YOU AND YOUR ORGANIZATION HAVE BEEN MAKING A
  • 00:49:22.180 --> 00:49:25.260
  • DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF THESE CHURCHES?
  • 00:49:25.280 --> 00:49:29.220
  • - WELL, WE WORK IN OVER 130 COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD,
  • 00:49:29.240 --> 00:49:32.240
  • CLIFTON, AND ONE OF THE BIG PROJECTS WE DO EVERY YEAR IS
  • 00:49:32.260 --> 00:49:35.020
  • OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD WHERE WE TAKE SHOE BOXES AND
  • 00:49:35.040 --> 00:49:38.000
  • ASK PEOPLE TO FILL THEM WITH GIFTS FOR CHILDREN.
  • 00:49:38.020 --> 00:49:41.100
  • AND THIS LAST YEAR, IT WAS OVER 13 MILLION BOXES WE
  • 00:49:41.120 --> 00:49:45.090
  • COLLECTED AND SENT THEM OUT, AGAIN, TO OVER 130
  • 00:49:45.110 --> 00:49:48.080
  • COUNTRIES, BUT WE DID THAT THROUGH THE CHURCHES.
  • 00:49:48.100 --> 00:49:51.240
  • AND THE CHURCHES USE THESE BOXES AS A
  • 00:49:51.260 --> 00:49:54.260
  • TOOL FOR EVANGELISM.
  • 00:49:54.280 --> 00:49:56.280
  • AND SO THEY GIVE THESE KIDS IN THEIR COMMUNITY THIS
  • 00:49:57.000 --> 00:50:00.030
  • GIFT, A BOX.
  • 00:50:00.050 --> 00:50:01.290
  • THEY SAY IF YOU COME TO THE CHURCH, WE'LL GIVE
  • 00:50:02.010 --> 00:50:03.180
  • YOU A GIFT.
  • 00:50:03.200 --> 00:50:05.040
  • SOME PEOPLE SAY, WELL, THAT'S NOT FAIR.
  • 00:50:05.060 --> 00:50:06.210
  • WHO SAID ANYTHING ABOUT BEING FAIR?
  • 00:50:06.230 --> 00:50:08.020
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:50:08.040 --> 00:50:10.140
  • SO WILL A KID COME FOR A FREE GIFT?
  • 00:50:10.160 --> 00:50:12.210
  • OF COURSE A KID WILL COME.
  • 00:50:12.230 --> 00:50:14.180
  • HE'S COME TO GET A GIFT.
  • 00:50:14.200 --> 00:50:16.130
  • - AND THERE'S AN EVEN GREATER GIFT WHEN
  • 00:50:16.150 --> 00:50:17.210
  • HE GETS THERE.
  • 00:50:17.230 --> 00:50:19.140
  • - WHEN HE GETS THERE, THE CHURCHES JUST DON'T GIVE
  • 00:50:19.160 --> 00:50:22.110
  • THEM THE GIFT.
  • 00:50:22.130 --> 00:50:23.270
  • THEY TAKE 30 MINUTES, 40 MINUTES, AN HOUR, AND PUT ON
  • 00:50:23.290 --> 00:50:27.120
  • A GOSPEL PRESENTATION.
  • 00:50:27.140 --> 00:50:29.180
  • THEY HAVE PUPPETS AND THESE KINDS OF THINGS, LIKE A
  • 00:50:29.200 --> 00:50:32.080
  • LITTLE SHOW GOING ON THAT EXPLAINS THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:50:32.100 --> 00:50:34.220
  • AND EVERY YEAR, HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF
  • 00:50:34.240 --> 00:50:38.020
  • KIDS COME TO FAITH IN CHRIST.
  • 00:50:38.040 --> 00:50:39.220
  • AND SO WE ARE WORKING WITH THESE CHURCHES ALL
  • 00:50:39.240 --> 00:50:41.260
  • OVER THE WORLD. MUSLIM CHILDREN GET SAVED.
  • 00:50:41.280 --> 00:50:44.130
  • - WOW.
  • 00:50:44.150 --> 00:50:46.030
  • - CHILDREN IN MUSLIM COUNTRIES GET SAVED.
  • 00:50:46.050 --> 00:50:47.220
  • - THAT'S WONDERFUL, PRAISE GOD.
  • 00:50:47.240 --> 00:50:49.160
  • - WE SEE THIS HAPPENING ALL OVER THE WORLD, BUT IT'S THE
  • 00:50:49.180 --> 00:50:51.030
  • POWER OF GOD, OKAY?
  • 00:50:51.050 --> 00:50:53.140
  • AND IT'S NOT ANYTHING WE DO.
  • 00:50:53.160 --> 00:50:56.040
  • IT'S SOMETHING GOD DOES.
  • 00:50:56.060 --> 00:50:58.000
  • AND WHETHER IT'S SAVING DR. BRANTLY, OR WHETHER
  • 00:50:58.020 --> 00:51:00.120
  • IT'S THAT HOSPITAL OUTSIDE OF MOSUL, OR WHETHER IT'S
  • 00:51:00.140 --> 00:51:02.240
  • THE SUMMIT, GOD IS THE ONE WHO IS INSPIRED.
  • 00:51:02.260 --> 00:51:07.040
  • GOD IS THE ONE WHO HAS GUIDED AND DIRECTED ALL OF
  • 00:51:07.060 --> 00:51:09.130
  • THIS, AND SO I GIVE HIM ALL THE GLORY.
  • 00:51:09.150 --> 00:51:11.160
  • IT'S NOTHING THAT I HAVE DONE.
  • 00:51:11.180 --> 00:51:12.260
  • IT'S SOMETHING GOD HAS DONE.
  • 00:51:12.280 --> 00:51:14.080
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:51:14.100 --> 00:51:20.210
  • - JUST LIKE TBN, IT COSTS MONEY TO DO THIS KIND OF
  • 00:51:20.230 --> 00:51:23.290
  • WORK, AND WE KNOW THAT THE LORD HAS BEEN
  • 00:51:24.010 --> 00:51:27.100
  • BLESSING YOU MIGHTILY.
  • 00:51:27.120 --> 00:51:30.050
  • HOW DID YOU RESPOND WHEN YOU HAD CHALLENGES
  • 00:51:30.070 --> 00:51:33.260
  • IN YOUR MINISTRY?
  • 00:51:33.280 --> 00:51:35.170
  • HOW DID YOU TRUST GOD THROUGH THE TOUGH TIMES?
  • 00:51:35.190 --> 00:51:39.010
  • - YOU KNOW, YOU JUST PRAY BECAUSE I'VE --WHETHER IT'S
  • 00:51:39.030 --> 00:51:41.280
  • SAMARITAN'S PURSE OR THE BILLY GRAHAM ASSOCIATION,
  • 00:51:42.000 --> 00:51:46.130
  • SAMARITAN'S PURSE ISN'T MINE.
  • 00:51:46.150 --> 00:51:47.290
  • THE BILLY GRAHAM ASSOCIATION WASN'T MY FATHER'S.
  • 00:51:48.010 --> 00:51:49.290
  • IT'S NOT MINE.
  • 00:51:50.010 --> 00:51:51.180
  • IT BELONGS TO THE LORD, AND IF HE WANTS IT TO CONTINUE,
  • 00:51:51.200 --> 00:51:54.080
  • THEN HE'LL LET IT CONTINUE.
  • 00:51:54.100 --> 00:51:56.110
  • BUT I ALWAYS SAY THAT IF WE HONOR THE LORD, GOD WILL
  • 00:51:56.130 --> 00:51:59.160
  • HONOR US, AND THAT'S TRUE FOR ALL OF US.
  • 00:51:59.180 --> 00:52:04.150
  • IT'S TRUE FOR ALL OF US.
  • 00:52:04.170 --> 00:52:06.150
  • AND SO I'VE JUST ALWAYS FELT THAT IF GOD GIVES ME AN
  • 00:52:06.170 --> 00:52:09.040
  • OPPORTUNITY, I WANT TO TRY TO HONOR HIM, AND I WANT TO
  • 00:52:09.060 --> 00:52:11.190
  • TRY TO TELL AS MANY PEOPLE AS I CAN ABOUT HIS SON JESUS
  • 00:52:11.210 --> 00:52:14.140
  • CHRIST WHO TOOK OUR SINS TO THE CROSS, WHO DIED IN OUR
  • 00:52:14.160 --> 00:52:16.280
  • PLACE, AND ROSE FROM THE GRAVE, WHO WILL COME INTO
  • 00:52:17.000 --> 00:52:19.290
  • EACH AND EVERY HEART THAT IS WILLING TO RECEIVE
  • 00:52:20.010 --> 00:52:22.140
  • HIM BY FAITH. IT'S NOT COMPLICATED.
  • 00:52:22.160 --> 00:52:25.100
  • GOD IS WILLING TO FORGIVE SIN.
  • 00:52:25.120 --> 00:52:27.180
  • HE WANTS TO FORGIVE SIN.
  • 00:52:27.200 --> 00:52:29.160
  • HE'S EXCITED ABOUT FORGIVING SIN, BUT WE'VE GOT TO BE
  • 00:52:29.180 --> 00:52:32.260
  • WILLING TO ACCEPT.
  • 00:52:32.280 --> 00:52:35.120
  • JESUS SAID, "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.
  • 00:52:35.140 --> 00:52:37.110
  • NO MAN COMES TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME."
  • 00:52:37.130 --> 00:52:40.110
  • THERE'S NOT TEN ROADS TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:52:40.130 --> 00:52:42.130
  • THERE'S ONLY ONE ROAD, AND THAT GOES THROUGH THE CROSS,
  • 00:52:42.150 --> 00:52:45.290
  • THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:52:46.010 --> 00:52:47.250
  • AND JESUS SAID, "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH,
  • 00:52:47.270 --> 00:52:49.120
  • AND THE LIFE.
  • 00:52:49.140 --> 00:52:51.030
  • NO MAN COMES TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME."
  • 00:52:51.050 --> 00:52:52.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:52:52.280 --> 00:52:59.140
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:52:59.140 --> 00:53:07.020
  • - I WAS THINKING TODAY TO MYSELF IN MY MOMENT OF
  • 00:53:07.040 --> 00:53:10.190
  • MEDITATION, TODAY OR YESTERDAY, I WAS THINKING IF
  • 00:53:10.210 --> 00:53:15.080
  • I ONLY HAD ONE SCRIPTURE THAT I COULD SHARE WITH
  • 00:53:15.100 --> 00:53:20.210
  • SOMEONE THAT COULD TELL ABOUT THE GREATNESS OF GOD'S
  • 00:53:20.230 --> 00:53:25.100
  • LOVE, IT WOULD BE JOHN 3:16.
  • 00:53:25.120 --> 00:53:27.210
  • - AMEN.
  • 00:53:27.230 --> 00:53:29.170
  • - BECAUSE THE GOSPEL IS EMBODIED IN THAT SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:53:29.190 --> 00:53:33.100
  • - IT'S THE ONE VERSE THAT'S GOT IT ALL.
  • 00:53:33.120 --> 00:53:35.000
  • - GOT IT ALL BECAUSE THE GREATEST BEING, FOR GOD SO
  • 00:53:35.020 --> 00:53:38.290
  • LOVED, THE GREATEST EMOTION, AND SO ON.
  • 00:53:39.010 --> 00:53:44.120
  • SO THE REALITY IS IF WE HAVE THIS KIND OF LOVE IN OUR
  • 00:53:44.140 --> 00:53:48.200
  • HEART AND A SENSE OF THE TRUTH OF GOD'S PLAN OF
  • 00:53:48.220 --> 00:53:52.140
  • SALVATION IN US, WE CAN ALL LEAD SOMEONE TO THE LORD.
  • 00:53:52.160 --> 00:53:56.280
  • - AMEN.
  • 00:53:57.000 --> 00:53:58.180
  • IT'S JUST BEING ABLE TO SHARE WHAT WE BELIEVE, AND
  • 00:53:58.200 --> 00:54:03.020
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A THEOLOGIAN, BUT FOR ALL OF
  • 00:54:03.040 --> 00:54:06.030
  • US JUST TO BE ABLE TO SOMEONE THAT'S HURTING SAY,
  • 00:54:06.050 --> 00:54:09.070
  • "GOD LOVES YOU, AND GOD SENT HIS SON FROM HEAVEN TO THIS
  • 00:54:09.090 --> 00:54:12.150
  • EARTH TO SAVE YOU."
  • 00:54:12.170 --> 00:54:14.140
  • AND IT'S JUST SIMPLY BY FAITH.
  • 00:54:14.160 --> 00:54:16.170
  • BY GRACE ARE WE SAVED THROUGH FAITH.
  • 00:54:16.190 --> 00:54:18.060
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.

  • - YOU CAN'T WORK FOR YOUR SALVATION.
  • 00:54:19.160 --> 00:54:21.010
  • IT'S BY GOD'S GRACE, AND IT'S THROUGH SIMPLE FAITH,
  • 00:54:21.030 --> 00:54:24.120
  • THROUGH SIMPLY BELIEVING.
  • 00:54:24.140 --> 00:54:25.260

  • EXPERIENCES LIKE THESE WHERE CHRIST IS AT THE CENTER
  • 00:55:36.060 --> 00:55:41.210

  • WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH IT?
  • 00:55:59.010 --> 00:56:02.020
  • ARE YOU GOING TO LET IT JUST SHOWER OVER YOU?
  • 00:56:02.040 --> 00:56:05.050
