  • GUNMEN TOOK ME OUT-- THAT WAS IN
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:44.030
  • NICARAGUA, AND THERE WAS WAR
  • 00:02:44.030 --> 00:02:46.010
  • BETWEEN THE SANDINISTAS AND THE
  • 00:02:46.010 --> 00:02:46.230
  • AND AS THEY LED ME OUT AND I SAW
  • 00:02:53.060 --> 00:02:54.270
  • THE GUNS, I REALIZED THIS WAS
  • 00:02:54.270 --> 00:02:56.000
  • SERIOUS.
  • 00:02:56.000 --> 00:02:58.160
  • I HAD BEEN ON THE ROAD FOR A
  • 00:02:58.160 --> 00:02:59.210
  • LONG TIME, AND THEY SAID, "WE'RE
  • 00:02:59.210 --> 00:03:01.220
  • GOING TO KILL YOU," AND THEY
  • 00:03:02.060 --> 00:03:05.060
  • BACKED UP, AND THEY POINTED
  • 00:03:06.090 --> 00:03:09.090
  • THEIR GUNS AT ME, AND I THOUGHT,
  • 00:03:09.090 --> 00:03:12.050
  • "I CAN'T GET TO THE CROSS."
  • 00:03:12.050 --> 00:03:13.210
  • IT WAS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF
  • 00:03:13.210 --> 00:03:15.080
  • THE VEHICLE, BUT RIGHT INSIDE
  • 00:03:15.080 --> 00:03:17.040
  • THE DOOR OF THE VEHICLE
  • 00:03:17.040 --> 00:03:18.200

  • BOUGHT AND DEDICATED IT,
  • 00:03:24.240 --> 00:03:25.180
  • I GRABBED THE BIBLES OUT OF
  • 00:03:25.180 --> 00:03:27.250
  • THE DOOR, AND I'D TAKEN THE KEYS
  • 00:03:27.250 --> 00:03:29.110
  • BECAUSE, IF THEY WANTED THE
  • 00:03:29.110 --> 00:03:31.170
  • VEHICLE, I'D GIVE IT TO 'EM.
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:33.140
  • BUT THEY DIDN'T WANT THAT.
  • 00:03:33.140 --> 00:03:36.090
  • THEY WANTED TO GET RID OF ME,
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:37.170
  • AND I THOUGHT, "I'M NOT GONNA
  • 00:03:37.170 --> 00:03:39.040
  • DIE WITHOUT MY BIBLE," OR
  • 00:03:39.040 --> 00:03:41.120
  • SOMETHING, AND I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:03:41.120 --> 00:03:43.280
  • THIS IS A ROAD GUY.
  • 00:03:43.280 --> 00:03:46.080
  • IT WAS A FULL MOON NIGHT,
  • 00:03:46.080 --> 00:03:48.190
  • AND I'D STUCK THE KEY RIGHT INTO
  • 00:03:49.010 --> 00:03:52.010
  • THE DOOR, THE FIRST TRY, AND
  • 00:03:52.010 --> 00:03:53.030
  • OPENED IT.
  • 00:03:53.070 --> 00:03:56.070
  • WELL, THEY'RE HOLLERING AT ME,
  • 00:03:56.070 --> 00:03:57.160
  • AND I THOUGHT, "IT DOESN'T
  • 00:03:57.160 --> 00:03:59.000
  • MATTER IF I GET SHOT IN THE BACK
  • 00:03:59.000 --> 00:04:00.100
  • OR THE FRONT, I MEAN, I'M GONNA
  • 00:04:00.100 --> 00:04:02.270
  • GRAB THOSE BIBLES," AND I
  • 00:04:02.270 --> 00:04:05.060
  • GRABBED THE CASE OF BIBLES THAT
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:06.030
  • WE WERE GONNA GIVE OUT THE NEXT
  • 00:04:06.030 --> 00:04:07.170
  • MORNING,
  • 00:04:07.170 --> 00:04:09.150
  • AND I PICKED THE BOX UP,
  • 00:04:09.150 --> 00:04:11.020
  • PUT IT DOWN, AND IT HAD THIS
  • 00:04:11.020 --> 00:04:13.040
  • TOUGH TAPE THAT HAD CORDS IN IT,
  • 00:04:13.290 --> 00:04:16.290
  • AND I COULD HARDLY GET IT OPEN,
  • 00:04:17.090 --> 00:04:20.090
  • AND I'M PULLIN', AND I GET HOLE,
  • 00:04:20.260 --> 00:04:23.260
  • AND I CAN SEE THE FEET OF THE
  • 00:04:23.260 --> 00:04:25.050
  • GUNMEN AROUND ME, AND THEY'RE
  • 00:04:25.050 --> 00:04:25.260
  • PULLING ON ME, TRYING TO
  • 00:04:25.260 --> 00:04:26.270
  • STRAIGHTEN ME UP, AND I GOT A
  • 00:04:26.270 --> 00:04:28.040
  • HOLE IN THE BOX, AND I GRABBED
  • 00:04:28.040 --> 00:04:29.110
  • THE BIBLE, AND I PICKED IT UP,
  • 00:04:29.250 --> 00:04:32.250
  • AND I THOUGHT, "I'M STILL
  • 00:04:32.250 --> 00:04:33.280
  • ALIVE," AND I GRABBED AN ARMFUL
  • 00:04:33.280 --> 00:04:35.150
  • OF BIBLES, AND I PUT THE BIBLES
  • 00:04:35.150 --> 00:04:38.080
  • IN MY ARM TO GIVE TO THE GUNMEN,
  • 00:04:40.160 --> 00:04:43.160
  • AND I LOOKED UP, AND THEY WERE
  • 00:04:43.160 --> 00:04:45.060
  • ALL LAYING ON THE GROUND AND ONE
  • 00:04:45.060 --> 00:04:47.050
  • GUY LAYING IN THE TRAILER DOOR
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:49.000
  • WITH JUST HIS FEET OUT, BUT WHAT
  • 00:04:49.040 --> 00:04:52.040
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WAS THAT, IN

  • STATION, AND JAN HAD BEEN
  • 00:05:05.110 --> 00:05:08.110
  • READING BILLY GRAHAM'S BOOK ON
  • 00:05:08.110 --> 00:05:10.030
  • ANGELS THAT DAY, AND THEY WENT
  • 00:05:11.130 --> 00:05:14.130
  • TO BED, AND JAN SUDDENLY SAW A
  • 00:05:14.170 --> 00:05:17.170
  • VISION OF-- SHE LOOKED UP, AND
  • 00:05:20.040 --> 00:05:23.040
  • SHE JUST SAW THE CEILING WAS
  • 00:05:23.060 --> 00:05:26.060
  • JUST ME, A SHE SAW A BIG TREE,
  • 00:05:27.010 --> 00:05:30.010
  • AND THERE WAS THIS DEATH ON MY
  • 00:05:30.010 --> 00:05:32.200
  • FACE.
  • 00:05:32.200 --> 00:05:35.120
  • SHE SAID IT WAS JUST LIKE
  • 00:05:35.120 --> 00:05:37.050
  • "YOU'RE ABOUT TO DIE,"
  • 00:05:38.150 --> 00:05:41.150
  • AND SHE REMEMBERED--
  • 00:05:41.150 --> 00:05:43.240
  • I MEAN, SHE GRABBED
  • 00:05:43.240 --> 00:05:45.270
  • PAUL AND SAID, "PAUL, WAKE UP,
  • 00:05:45.270 --> 00:05:46.260
  • GET UP.
  • 00:05:46.260 --> 00:05:48.020
  • ARTHUR BLESSITT'S ABOUT TO DIE."
  • 00:05:49.050 --> 00:05:52.050
  • AND PAUL FELL OUT OF BED, AND
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:54.010
  • THEY GOT ON THEIR KNEES, AND SHE
  • 00:05:54.010 --> 00:05:56.020
  • REMEMBERED BILLY GRAHAM'S BOOK
  • 00:05:56.020 --> 00:05:58.270
  • ON ANGELS, AND SHE SAID, "LORD,
  • 00:05:58.270 --> 00:06:01.000
  • JESUS," AS ONLY YOUR MAMA COULD
  • 00:06:01.000 --> 00:06:03.160
  • SAY IT, "JESUS, SEND 12 BIG
  • 00:06:05.060 --> 00:06:08.060
  • ANGELS DOWN RIGHT NOW AND
  • 00:06:08.060 --> 00:06:08.260
  • DELIVER HIM," AND THEY FELT
  • 00:06:08.260 --> 00:06:10.000
  • PEACE.
  • 00:06:12.160 --> 00:06:15.160
  • AND TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT,
  • 00:06:15.160 --> 00:06:16.080
  • I SURVIVED.
  • 00:06:16.080 --> 00:06:18.170
  • THE GUNMEN RAN OFF, JUMPED ON A
  • 00:06:18.170 --> 00:06:20.150
  • TRUCK, AND IT TOOK OFF, AND WHEN
  • 00:06:20.150 --> 00:06:23.050
  • I GOT DOWN TO MANAGUA-- WELL, WE

  • "CALL-- PAUL AND JAN WANNA TALK
  • 00:06:27.270 --> 00:06:29.190

  • 00:32:48.270 --> 00:32:50.110
  • JESUS SPOKE TO ME SO CLEARLY.
  • 00:32:50.110 --> 00:32:53.090
  • ARTHUR, TAKE THE CROSS OFF THE
  • 00:32:53.090 --> 00:32:55.150
  • WALL OF THE BUILDING AND PUT IT
  • 00:32:55.150 --> 00:32:57.290
  • ON YOUR SHOULDER AND CARRY IT ON
  • 00:32:58.260 --> 00:33:01.280
  • FOOT ACROSS AMERICA AND IDENTIFY
  • 00:33:02.000 --> 00:33:05.000
  • MY MESSAGE WHERE THE PEOPLE
  • 00:33:05.000 --> 00:33:07.130
  • ARE."
  • 00:33:07.130 --> 00:33:09.160
  • I WAS READY TO DO IT.
  • 00:33:09.160 --> 00:33:11.010
  • I WAS READY TO BE OBEDIENT TO
  • 00:33:11.010 --> 00:33:12.270
  • HIS CALL, BUT IT CONFLICTED
  • 00:33:12.270 --> 00:33:14.280
  • WITH, FIRST, MY DESIRE TO BE ON
  • 00:33:15.150 --> 00:33:18.150
  • SUNSET STRIP.
  • 00:33:18.150 --> 00:33:21.030
  • I LOVED BEING THE MINISTER OF
  • 00:33:21.030 --> 00:33:22.030
  • SUNSET STRIP, WORKING WITH THE
  • 00:33:22.030 --> 00:33:23.100
  • YOUNG PEOPLE, AND I THINK THE
  • 00:33:23.100 --> 00:33:25.270
  • WAY GOD RATIONALIZED IT, TO ME,
  • 00:33:25.270 --> 00:33:28.210
  • WAS THE SUNSET STRIP STRETCHES
  • 00:33:28.210 --> 00:33:29.120
  • AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:33:29.120 --> 00:33:31.250
  • [SIREN]
  • 00:33:31.250 --> 00:33:33.280
  • AND, SUDDENLY, I HAD A PRICK
  • 00:33:33.280 --> 00:33:35.060
  • OF A PAIN IN THE SIDE OF
  • 00:33:35.060 --> 00:33:37.020
  • MY HEAD, VERY QUICKLY BEGAN TO
  • 00:33:37.020 --> 00:33:38.200
  • BE NUMB AND PARTIALLY PARALYZED
  • 00:33:39.090 --> 00:33:42.090
  • ON PART OF THE RIGHT SIDE OF MY
  • 00:33:42.090 --> 00:33:44.060
  • BODY.
  • 00:33:44.060 --> 00:33:45.250
  • THE DOCTORS WERE SAYING, "IT
  • 00:33:45.250 --> 00:33:47.010
  • LOOKS LIKE YOU NEED BRAIN
  • 00:33:47.010 --> 00:33:48.150
  • SURGERY FOR THIS ANEURYSM."
  • 00:33:48.150 --> 00:33:51.030
  • I SAID, "I'M SUPPOSED TO LEAVE
  • 00:33:51.030 --> 00:33:53.170
  • IN TWO WEEKS TO CARRY THE CROSS
  • 00:33:53.260 --> 00:33:56.260
  • ACROSS AMERICA," AND I KNOW THEY
  • 00:33:57.100 --> 00:34:00.120
  • THOUGHT I NEEDED BRAIN SURGERY
  • 00:34:00.120 --> 00:34:02.050
  • FOR SURE, BUT THEY SAID, "YOU
  • 00:34:02.050 --> 00:34:04.090
  • CAN'T LIFT ANYTHING HEAVY.
  • 00:34:04.090 --> 00:34:06.100
  • YOU CAN'T EXERT YOURSELF.
  • 00:34:06.100 --> 00:34:07.270
  • A STRAIN COULD BURST THOSE
  • 00:34:07.270 --> 00:34:09.120
  • ANEURYSMS IN YOUR BRAIN."
  • 00:34:09.170 --> 00:34:12.170
  • AND, LAYING IN BED, I SAID,
  • 00:34:12.170 --> 00:34:14.130
  • "JESUS, WHAT DO YOU
  • 00:34:14.130 --> 00:34:17.050
  • WANT ME TO DO?"
  • 00:34:17.050 --> 00:34:18.260
  • AND HE DIDN'T SPEAK.
  • 00:34:18.260 --> 00:34:20.130
  • MOST OF THE TIME, HE DOES, AND
  • 00:34:20.130 --> 00:34:22.170
  • IT WAS VERY STRANGE TO ME, AND I
  • 00:34:22.170 --> 00:34:24.170
  • THOUGHT, "WHY AREN'T YOU
  • 00:34:24.270 --> 00:34:27.270
  • SPEAKIN' TO ME, LORD?
  • 00:34:27.270 --> 00:34:29.230
  • YOU CALLED ME TO CARRY THE
  • 00:34:29.230 --> 00:34:31.260
  • CROSS.
  • 00:34:31.260 --> 00:34:32.250
  • YOU SAID, 'LEAVE CHRISTMAS DAY.'
  • 00:34:32.250 --> 00:34:34.120
  • HERE I AM WITH A BRAIN ANEURYSM
  • 00:34:34.120 --> 00:34:37.020
  • AND SICK IN BED," AND THEN I
  • 00:34:37.020 --> 00:34:39.040
  • REALIZED SOMETHING.
  • 00:34:39.060 --> 00:34:42.060
  • HE HAD TOLD ME WHAT I WAS TO DO,
  • 00:34:42.060 --> 00:34:43.290
  • AND NOW I THOUGHT MY
  • 00:34:43.290 --> 00:34:46.220
  • CIRCUMSTANCES HAD ALTERED HIS
  • 00:34:46.220 --> 00:34:49.120
  • CALL, AND LAYING IN THAT BED, I
  • 00:34:50.080 --> 00:34:53.080
  • LEARNED THE LIFE LESSON:
  • 00:34:53.080 --> 00:34:55.240
  • CIRCUMSTANCES DON'T ALTER THE
  • 00:34:57.010 --> 00:35:00.030
  • CALL, AND I SAID, "I'D RATHER
  • 00:35:00.030 --> 00:35:01.100
  • DIE IN THE WILL OF GOD THAN LIVE
  • 00:35:01.100 --> 00:35:03.150
  • OUTSIDE OF IT."
  • 00:35:03.150 --> 00:35:05.180
  • I GOT UP OUT OF BED.
  • 00:35:05.180 --> 00:35:06.090
  • I FLUSHED THE MEDICINE DOWN THE
  • 00:35:06.090 --> 00:35:08.150
  • TOILET, AND LESS THAN TWO WEEKS
  • 00:35:08.150 --> 00:35:11.130
  • LATER, ON CHRISTMAS MORNING, PUT
  • 00:35:13.120 --> 00:35:16.120
  • THE CROSS ON MY SHOULDER.
  • 00:35:16.120 --> 00:35:18.020
  • IT WAS DIFFICULT TO SPEAK, IT
  • 00:35:18.020 --> 00:35:20.230
  • WAS DIFFICULT TO WALK, BUT I
  • 00:35:20.230 --> 00:35:22.250
  • THOUGHT, "I'LL DIE WITH THE WIND
  • 00:35:22.250 --> 00:35:25.160
  • IN MY FACE, BUT I'M NOT GONNA
  • 00:35:25.160 --> 00:35:27.100
  • DIE FLAT ON MY BACK IN SOME

  • DOWN SUNSET BOULEVARD, HEADING
  • 00:35:32.050 --> 00:35:33.250
  • TOWARD WASHINGTON, D.C.
  • 00:35:36.130 --> 00:35:39.130
  • [MUSIC]

  • PERHAPS NO BETTER STORY TO

  • SYMBOLIZE WHY ARTHUR DOES WHAT
  • 00:35:42.090 --> 00:35:44.170
  • HE DOES THAN TO VISIT THE
  • 00:35:44.170 --> 00:35:46.170
  • PLAZA MAYOR, MADRID, SPAIN.
  • 00:35:46.170 --> 00:35:48.260
  • IT WAS 1972, AND SPAIN WAS STILL
  • 00:35:49.020 --> 00:35:52.020
  • UNDER THE DICTATORSHIP OF
  • 00:35:52.020 --> 00:35:53.140
  • FRANCO'S FASCIST REGIME.
  • 00:35:53.160 --> 00:35:56.160
  • - ARTHUR: I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:35:56.160 --> 00:35:58.260
  • WHAT THE PLAZA MAYOR WAS.
  • 00:35:58.260 --> 00:36:01.010
  • I ASKED A NEWS REPORTER.
  • 00:36:01.010 --> 00:36:02.200
  • I SAID, "IF YOU WERE CARRYING A
  • 00:36:02.200 --> 00:36:04.000
  • CROSS AND YOU WENT TO MADRID,
  • 00:36:04.000 --> 00:36:05.160
  • WHERE WOULD YOU GO?"
  • 00:36:05.160 --> 00:36:06.230
  • AND HE SAID, "THE PLAZA MAYOR."
  • 00:36:06.230 --> 00:36:09.130
  • I SAID, "THE PLAZA MAYOR, IT IS.
  • 00:36:09.130 --> 00:36:10.130
  • I'LL BE THERE," AND I GAVE THE
  • 00:36:10.160 --> 00:36:13.160
  • DATE, AND THEN AS IT GOT CLOSER
  • 00:36:14.190 --> 00:36:17.190
  • AND CLOSER, PASTORS BEGAN TO
  • 00:36:17.190 --> 00:36:19.040
  • TELL ME, "WOW, THIS WAS THE
  • 00:36:19.210 --> 00:36:22.210
  • PLACE OF THE INQUISITION."
  • 00:36:22.210 --> 00:36:24.090
  • OVER 100.000 PEOPLE HAD

  • MAYOR, AND NOW, AGAIN,
  • 00:36:30.260 --> 00:36:32.290
  • THE SUPPRESSION AND THE

  • BATTLE TO HAVE ANY KIND OF
  • 00:36:34.220 --> 00:36:37.110
  • RELIGIOUS FREEDOM WAS A STRUGGLE
  • 00:36:37.110 --> 00:36:39.140
  • THAT WAS GOING ON IN SPAIN AT
  • 00:36:39.140 --> 00:36:40.080
  • THIS TIME.
  • 00:36:42.290 --> 00:36:45.290
  • I CARRIED THE CROSS UNDER THESE

  • BODY-TO-BODY INSIDE THE SQUARE--
  • 00:36:59.000 --> 00:37:01.200
  • PUSHED OUR WAY TO THE CENTER OF
  • 00:37:02.230 --> 00:37:05.230
  • THE SQUARE, LIFTED UP THE CROSS,
  • 00:37:05.230 --> 00:37:06.150
  • AND I STARTED TO PREACH.
  • 00:37:07.140 --> 00:37:10.140
  • A HUSH WENT OVER THE CROWD, AND
  • 00:37:10.140 --> 00:37:12.110
  • IN THE BACK, THE CIVIL GUARDIA,

  • THE STORM TROOPS OF FRANCO, AND

  • SAYS, YOU KNOW, "TAKE THE CROSS
  • 00:37:23.060 --> 00:37:24.170
  • DOWN-- GO," AND I SAID, "NO, I

  • STAND WITH THOSE IN THE PAST

  • WHO'VE BEEN MARTYRED, CALLED--"
  • 00:37:31.270 --> 00:37:33.270
  • "WHAM-O," I WAS KNOCKED DOWN.

  • STANDING NEARBY, GRABBED THE

  • CROSS AND STARTED LIFTING IT UP,
  • 00:37:50.250 --> 00:37:53.100
  • AND OTHERS RUSHED UP, GRABBED
  • 00:37:53.100 --> 00:37:55.270
  • THE CROSS, LIFTED THE CROSS UP.
  • 00:37:55.280 --> 00:37:58.280
  • I'M LAYING FLAT DOWN, TRYING TO
  • 00:37:58.280 --> 00:38:01.200
  • GET MY BREATH, AND THEN THEY

  • START CLUBBING THESE PASTORS WHO

  • ARE LIFTING UP THE CROSS,
  • 00:38:08.100 --> 00:38:11.050

  • IT WAS THIS THRUST TOWARD--

  • DROVE AWAY.
  • 00:39:08.150 --> 00:39:11.150
  • THAT WAS THE LAST SIGHT I SAW.

  • TESTIMONY AND SHARING ABOUT
