  • - [Wendy] Happy Thanksgiving from The 700 Club.
  • 00:00:06.060 --> 00:00:08.250
  • - [John] There's something that is bigger and grander
  • 00:00:08.250 --> 00:00:11.270
  • than any of us who are involved in it.
  • 00:00:11.270 --> 00:00:14.130
  • - [Wendy] Go behind the scenes of the Macy's parade.
  • 00:00:14.130 --> 00:00:17.030
  • - It takes a special person to work here.
  • 00:00:17.030 --> 00:00:19.070
  • - [Wendy] See a holiday healing.
  • 00:00:19.070 --> 00:00:20.270
  • - We have a walking miracle in the hospital here today.
  • 00:00:20.270 --> 00:00:25.110
  • - [Wendy] Meet an everyday hero.
  • 00:00:25.110 --> 00:00:27.100
  • - I couldn't ask for a better gift than that.
  • 00:00:27.100 --> 00:00:29.170
  • - [Wendy] And another who saved a nation.
  • 00:00:29.170 --> 00:00:32.020
  • - My name is Tisquantum.
  • 00:00:32.020 --> 00:00:33.090
  • We mean you no harm.
  • 00:00:33.090 --> 00:00:34.160
  • - [Wendy] On today's 700 Club.
  • 00:00:34.160 --> 00:00:36.230
  • (dramatic music)
  • 00:00:37.280 --> 00:00:40.210
  • - Well Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
  • 00:00:44.220 --> 00:00:47.050
  • We welcome you to this special edition of The 700 Club.
  • 00:00:47.050 --> 00:00:51.170
  • Without him, there would be no Thanksgiving.
  • 00:00:51.170 --> 00:00:54.140
  • You know who he is?
  • 00:00:54.140 --> 00:00:56.200
  • We'll get you the answer in a few minutes.
  • 00:00:56.200 --> 00:00:59.140
  • Plus, the magic of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
  • 00:00:59.140 --> 00:01:03.260
  • We'll go behind the scenes for all the action.
  • 00:01:03.260 --> 00:01:07.100
  • And what to do with all those Thanksgiving leftovers?
  • 00:01:07.100 --> 00:01:11.090
  • TV chef Ellie Krieger has the answer.
  • 00:01:11.090 --> 00:01:14.280
  • It's coming up on this special edition of The 700 Club.
  • 00:01:14.280 --> 00:01:19.120
  • - But first, do you need a miracle this Thanksgiving?
  • 00:01:19.120 --> 00:01:23.000
  • Well three years ago, Caitlin Shaw did.
  • 00:01:23.000 --> 00:01:25.260
  • A 100-foot tree crashed into her bedroom, crushing her,
  • 00:01:25.260 --> 00:01:30.030
  • and you'll never believe how she got out.
  • 00:01:30.030 --> 00:01:32.270
  • - That particular day, it was pretty windy,
  • 00:01:35.040 --> 00:01:38.280
  • and I could actually hear some branches falling on the roof,
  • 00:01:38.280 --> 00:01:42.100
  • and we heard just an explosion.
  • 00:01:42.100 --> 00:01:45.170
  • (tree booms)
  • 00:01:45.170 --> 00:01:46.150
  • It just rocked the whole house.
  • 00:01:46.150 --> 00:01:48.220
  • - [Andrew] It was mid-November 2017.
  • 00:01:48.220 --> 00:01:51.120
  • John and Naisila Shaw's family
  • 00:01:51.120 --> 00:01:53.090
  • had just finished an early dinner.
  • 00:01:53.090 --> 00:01:55.010
  • Afterward, their 14-year-old daughter, Caitlin,
  • 00:01:55.010 --> 00:01:57.010
  • went to her room to take a nap.
  • 00:01:57.010 --> 00:01:58.210
  • Without warning, a 100-foot tall tree
  • 00:01:58.210 --> 00:02:01.020
  • crashed into her bedroom.
  • 00:02:01.020 --> 00:02:02.220
  • A neighbor came over to help
  • 00:02:02.220 --> 00:02:03.270
  • as they searched frantically for Caitlin.
  • 00:02:03.270 --> 00:02:06.020
  • - All we saw was this tree completely filling the room
  • 00:02:06.020 --> 00:02:09.290
  • and the roof had, of course, been crushed underneath it
  • 00:02:09.290 --> 00:02:14.280
  • and I can see just the sky behind and it was raining
  • 00:02:14.280 --> 00:02:18.280
  • and it was so windy.
  • 00:02:18.280 --> 00:02:20.120
  • - So I went into the room and just tried to see
  • 00:02:20.120 --> 00:02:22.210
  • if I could see her.
  • 00:02:24.040 --> 00:02:25.180
  • I'm calling her name out and she's not respond to us.
  • 00:02:25.180 --> 00:02:29.020
  • - [Andrew] The tree was massive and too heavy to move.
  • 00:02:29.020 --> 00:02:32.130
  • Finally, John spotted one of her legs.
  • 00:02:32.130 --> 00:02:35.100
  • - Finally found her, but we couldn't see her head.
  • 00:02:35.100 --> 00:02:39.170
  • And so I'm pulling her leg, she's not coming
  • 00:02:39.170 --> 00:02:42.020
  • and I start pulling her arm, she's not coming.
  • 00:02:42.020 --> 00:02:43.280
  • I'm pulling so hard, I feel like I can pull her arm
  • 00:02:43.280 --> 00:02:45.270
  • right out of her socket and I'm pulling
  • 00:02:45.270 --> 00:02:47.220
  • with everything I got and she's not moving
  • 00:02:47.220 --> 00:02:51.010
  • and her head is still pinched and just under the tree.
  • 00:02:51.010 --> 00:02:55.090
  • - It was scary but, you know,
  • 00:02:55.090 --> 00:02:57.280
  • the tree, the branches everywhere.
  • 00:02:57.280 --> 00:03:01.000
  • I thought she's gone, you know, dead.
  • 00:03:01.000 --> 00:03:04.050
  • All of a sudden, while I'm pulling on her arm,
  • 00:03:04.050 --> 00:03:07.170
  • while she's sliding between my hands,
  • 00:03:07.170 --> 00:03:10.270
  • I can't explain this, but all of a sudden,
  • 00:03:10.270 --> 00:03:12.240
  • she started shimmying out from under the tree.
  • 00:03:12.240 --> 00:03:16.250
  • And it was just like, almost like an a-ha moment.
  • 00:03:18.060 --> 00:03:20.290
  • It was God just intervening.
  • 00:03:20.290 --> 00:03:24.180
  • - [Andrew] Caitlin was unresponsive.
  • 00:03:24.180 --> 00:03:26.100
  • They called 9-1-1 and took her to the living room
  • 00:03:26.100 --> 00:03:28.110
  • where John began to pray.
  • 00:03:28.110 --> 00:03:30.100
  • - I just laid my hand on her head
  • 00:03:30.100 --> 00:03:32.060
  • and said, "Father, in the name of Jesus,
  • 00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:36.000
  • "I cast out the spirit of injury and death,"
  • 00:03:36.000 --> 00:03:40.000
  • and I began to see Jesus breathe into her.
  • 00:03:42.020 --> 00:03:45.290
  • And right at that moment, all of a sudden,
  • 00:03:45.290 --> 00:03:47.260
  • her chest began to rise and she started shaking.
  • 00:03:47.260 --> 00:03:52.090
  • Her body started, almost like she was having a seizure,
  • 00:03:52.090 --> 00:03:56.090
  • and she was just gasping for breath.
  • 00:03:56.090 --> 00:03:58.020
  • And up to that moment, she wasn't moving,
  • 00:03:58.020 --> 00:04:00.150
  • she wasn't breathing, nothing was going on,
  • 00:04:00.150 --> 00:04:02.190
  • just laying there.
  • 00:04:02.190 --> 00:04:04.020
  • - [Andrew] EMTs arrived at the scene
  • 00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:05.160
  • and Caitlin was transported to the hospital.
  • 00:04:05.160 --> 00:04:08.030
  • John and Naisila followed close behind.
  • 00:04:08.030 --> 00:04:11.040
  • - They had her on life support
  • 00:04:11.040 --> 00:04:12.200
  • and I began to pray again.
  • 00:04:14.020 --> 00:04:15.180
  • I began to put my hand on her, praying for a miracle of God.
  • 00:04:15.180 --> 00:04:19.240
  • - [Andrew] The Shaws started calling
  • 00:04:19.240 --> 00:04:21.020
  • their friends and family, and soon,
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:22.160
  • they had a prayer chain for Caitlin
  • 00:04:22.160 --> 00:04:24.090
  • that stretched from there in Washington
  • 00:04:24.090 --> 00:04:26.080
  • to Tennessee, all the way Guam.
  • 00:04:26.080 --> 00:04:29.000
  • - [John] I would figure there were probably hundreds,
  • 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:31.000
  • maybe even a few thousand people,
  • 00:04:31.000 --> 00:04:32.290
  • that were praying for my daughter.
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:35.010
  • - I say, "God, give her another chance, please."
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:39.220
  • - [Andrew] After 18 hours, the doctors removed life support
  • 00:04:39.220 --> 00:04:42.250
  • to see if Caitlin could breathe on her own.
  • 00:04:42.250 --> 00:04:45.150
  • - This is the moment of truth.
  • 00:04:45.150 --> 00:04:47.060
  • Whatever's gonna happen is gonna happen.
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:50.160
  • They're gonna either pull her off
  • 00:04:50.160 --> 00:04:51.240
  • and she's gonna somehow be hanging on still
  • 00:04:51.240 --> 00:04:55.160
  • or we're gonna end up letting her go.
  • 00:04:57.010 --> 00:04:58.230
  • I was calling to God and, all of a sudden,
  • 00:04:58.230 --> 00:05:03.170
  • they said, "Come back in.
  • 00:05:03.170 --> 00:05:04.270
  • "She's stabilized to a point.
  • 00:05:05.270 --> 00:05:08.180
  • "She's breathing on her own."
  • 00:05:08.180 --> 00:05:10.050
  • - It looks like she's fighting for her life.
  • 00:05:10.050 --> 00:05:13.110
  • She's fighting on her own.
  • 00:05:13.110 --> 00:05:15.260
  • - About 18 hours after, they pull the life support.
  • 00:05:15.260 --> 00:05:20.080
  • She's semi-stablized.
  • 00:05:20.080 --> 00:05:22.110
  • She's breathing on her own.
  • 00:05:22.110 --> 00:05:23.090
  • And about six hours later,
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:25.220
  • this was like slightly less than 24 hours,
  • 00:05:25.220 --> 00:05:29.190
  • she actually stood up and was walking down the hall
  • 00:05:29.190 --> 00:05:34.190
  • with the support of the hospital staff.
  • 00:05:35.250 --> 00:05:39.120
  • - [Andrew] Caitlin's nurse shared her story
  • 00:05:39.120 --> 00:05:41.020
  • with other members of the medical team.
  • 00:05:41.020 --> 00:05:43.080
  • - She says, "I know I'm not supposed to
  • 00:05:43.080 --> 00:05:44.200
  • "necessarily share names and all that,
  • 00:05:44.200 --> 00:05:47.070
  • "but there's a young girl named Caitlin
  • 00:05:47.070 --> 00:05:51.040
  • "and I'm taking care of her
  • 00:05:51.040 --> 00:05:52.200
  • "and we have a walking miracle in our hospital here today."
  • 00:05:52.200 --> 00:05:57.200
  • - [Andrew] Caitlin recovered quickly,
  • 00:05:59.050 --> 00:06:00.190
  • and within days of her traumatic experience,
  • 00:06:00.190 --> 00:06:02.280
  • was released from the hospital.
  • 00:06:02.280 --> 00:06:05.000
  • - Here it was a Friday, and Sunday, we're in church.
  • 00:06:05.000 --> 00:06:09.240
  • She's in church with us.
  • 00:06:09.240 --> 00:06:11.200
  • It was almost surreal.
  • 00:06:11.200 --> 00:06:13.140
  • There was such an excitement in the congregation.
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:17.040
  • - [Andrew] Two weeks after Caitlin's miracle,
  • 00:06:17.040 --> 00:06:19.070
  • the Shaw family celebrated Thanksgiving
  • 00:06:19.070 --> 00:06:21.100
  • with hearts full of gratitude.
  • 00:06:21.100 --> 00:06:23.160
  • - I knew a lot of people were praying for me
  • 00:06:23.160 --> 00:06:26.230
  • and I felt very thankful for them.
  • 00:06:26.230 --> 00:06:28.220
  • - I would really thank God for bringing us all back together
  • 00:06:30.060 --> 00:06:34.180
  • for Thanksgiving.
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:37.050
  • That's really special for us.
  • 00:06:37.050 --> 00:06:39.020
  • - There was such a sense of gratitude and thankfulness,
  • 00:06:39.020 --> 00:06:43.170
  • that opportunity just to have a continuation
  • 00:06:43.170 --> 00:06:46.280
  • of her being with us and God never left us or forsook us
  • 00:06:46.280 --> 00:06:51.250
  • in the midst of all that trial.
  • 00:06:51.250 --> 00:06:54.220
  • - [Andrew] This experience
  • 00:06:54.220 --> 00:06:55.250
  • has changed Caitlin's view of God.
  • 00:06:55.250 --> 00:06:58.160
  • - I started to actually, like, believe in Him
  • 00:06:58.160 --> 00:07:03.110
  • 'cause, like, He saved my life.
  • 00:07:03.110 --> 00:07:04.270
  • If it wasn't for Him, I wouldn't be here.
  • 00:07:06.020 --> 00:07:08.260
  • - God is real.
  • 00:07:08.260 --> 00:07:10.180
  • God answered my prayers.
  • 00:07:10.180 --> 00:07:12.030
  • He'll never leave you or forsake you.
  • 00:07:12.030 --> 00:07:14.070
  • - There's still that soft spot in our heart
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:16.170
  • of just thankfulness and gratitude to God
  • 00:07:16.170 --> 00:07:20.040
  • because, in the midst of just devastation
  • 00:07:20.040 --> 00:07:23.030
  • and broken pieces and He just sustained us
  • 00:07:23.030 --> 00:07:26.090
  • and we're just so thankful that He's carried us through.
  • 00:07:26.090 --> 00:07:29.060
  • - Wow.
  • 00:07:31.250 --> 00:07:33.090
  • I mean, that really is, that is a point of gratitude
  • 00:07:33.090 --> 00:07:36.180
  • for that family. - Amazing.
  • 00:07:36.180 --> 00:07:37.150
  • - Amazing.
  • 00:07:37.150 --> 00:07:38.240
  • Well we have some other answers to prayer here
  • 00:07:38.240 --> 00:07:40.180
  • to encourage you.
  • 00:07:40.180 --> 00:07:42.010
  • Pat, this is Geraldine,
  • 00:07:42.010 --> 00:07:43.080
  • who lives in Salton City, California.
  • 00:07:43.080 --> 00:07:45.040
  • She turned a certain way and her right hip would cause her
  • 00:07:45.040 --> 00:07:47.110
  • to cry out in pain, it was so bad.
  • 00:07:47.110 --> 00:07:49.180
  • One day, she heard you pray and declare healing
  • 00:07:49.180 --> 00:07:51.180
  • for, quote, "someone having difficulty
  • 00:07:51.180 --> 00:07:53.110
  • "with your right hip area."
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:54.290
  • And although she previously
  • 00:07:54.290 --> 00:07:56.180
  • had not believed God would heal her,
  • 00:07:56.180 --> 00:07:58.110
  • when you said, "Stand up and walk," she did.
  • 00:07:58.110 --> 00:08:00.260
  • The pain left, hasn't returned since, and she walks today
  • 00:08:00.260 --> 00:08:03.210
  • without a limp. - Isn't that amazing?
  • 00:08:03.210 --> 00:08:05.160
  • You know, on this Thanksgiving,
  • 00:08:05.160 --> 00:08:07.000
  • what a time to give thanks as we pray for people.
  • 00:08:07.000 --> 00:08:10.050
  • But I didn't know Geraldine.
  • 00:08:10.050 --> 00:08:11.200
  • I didn't know about her hip.
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:13.000
  • But God knew her.
  • 00:08:13.000 --> 00:08:14.160
  • And here's what else,
  • 00:08:14.160 --> 00:08:15.230
  • Cindy, who lives in Hartline, Washington,

  • Let your requests be known unto God with thanksgiving.
  • 00:08:44.170 --> 00:08:48.250
  • And so we bring our requests to the Lord

  • I don't know what it is,

  • 00:12:55.050 --> 00:12:57.170
  • Late September, they moved into their car.
  • 00:12:57.170 --> 00:13:00.170
  • A family of five had been hit by hard times

  • and they had nowhere else to go.
  • 00:13:03.260 --> 00:13:05.280

  • 00:13:05.280 --> 00:13:08.230

  • I've seen how it rips apart families.
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:20.080
  • I've seen what it does to children.
  • 00:13:20.080 --> 00:13:22.140
  • When I think about the children
  • 00:13:22.140 --> 00:13:25.080
  • in this country, in our country,
  • 00:13:25.080 --> 00:13:27.190
  • that we let our children go without food and shelter,
  • 00:13:29.020 --> 00:13:33.270
  • I had to do something.
  • 00:13:35.160 --> 00:13:37.070
  • - [Andrew] Leo Gorcey is development director
  • 00:13:38.130 --> 00:13:40.160
  • for Vehicles for Changes,
  • 00:13:40.160 --> 00:13:42.090
  • a non-profit organization in Oregon
  • 00:13:42.090 --> 00:13:44.170
  • that converts retired school buses
  • 00:13:44.170 --> 00:13:46.190
  • into homes for homeles families.
  • 00:13:46.190 --> 00:13:48.280
  • For Leo's wife, Julie, this is literally a dream come true.
  • 00:13:48.280 --> 00:13:53.100
  • - She literally had a dream, like an actual dream,
  • 00:13:53.100 --> 00:13:56.140
  • and woke up and said, "Oh my god, I had this dream about
  • 00:13:56.140 --> 00:13:59.140
  • "that we were making these buses for homeless families."
  • 00:13:59.140 --> 00:14:02.290
  • She wrote a little blog about the dream she had,
  • 00:14:02.290 --> 00:14:06.050
  • and the next day, we had a woman,
  • 00:14:06.050 --> 00:14:08.260
  • who didn't want to be identified, from the Midwest
  • 00:14:08.260 --> 00:14:11.240
  • who gave us a grant for $25.000 a year for five years.
  • 00:14:11.240 --> 00:14:16.220
  • - [Andrew] They began working to make a change
  • 00:14:16.220 --> 00:14:18.120
  • for Oregon's ever increasing homeless families.
  • 00:14:18.120 --> 00:14:21.270
  • - The fastest growing segment of homeless people right now
  • 00:14:21.270 --> 00:14:25.010
  • is homeless parents with children.
  • 00:14:25.010 --> 00:14:27.250
  • There are 20.000 homeless children
  • 00:14:27.250 --> 00:14:29.280
  • just in the state of Oregon.
  • 00:14:29.280 --> 00:14:31.250
  • So we want to stop generational homelessness.
  • 00:14:31.250 --> 00:14:35.000
  • We have to stop it now.
  • 00:14:35.000 --> 00:14:37.150
  • - [Andrew] The Ashland school district donated the first bus
  • 00:14:37.150 --> 00:14:40.010
  • and the next day, the dream was put into motion.
  • 00:14:40.010 --> 00:14:42.180
  • Around the same time,
  • 00:14:42.180 --> 00:14:44.040
  • David Flood and his family of five found themselves homeless
  • 00:14:44.040 --> 00:14:47.270
  • after health problems left them unable to pay rent.
  • 00:14:47.270 --> 00:14:51.130
  • - Our finances had changed drastically, unexpectedly,
  • 00:14:51.130 --> 00:14:55.150
  • and so we ended up camping out a lot.
  • 00:14:55.150 --> 00:14:59.000
  • So it was still kind of an adventure.
  • 00:14:59.000 --> 00:15:00.270
  • It was still kinda waiting to see what God was going to do
  • 00:15:00.270 --> 00:15:04.160
  • on our behalf.
  • 00:15:04.160 --> 00:15:05.240
  • And then they closed down the campground
  • 00:15:05.240 --> 00:15:07.210
  • and the five of us ended up in our car.
  • 00:15:07.210 --> 00:15:10.090
  • Didn't feel safe with such a small space.
  • 00:15:11.140 --> 00:15:15.060
  • And then my wife had mentioned she saw Vehicles for Changes
  • 00:15:15.060 --> 00:15:18.250
  • and said, "I think I should call."
  • 00:15:18.250 --> 00:15:21.140
  • - [Andrew] Once they connected, Leo and his team worked hard
  • 00:15:21.140 --> 00:15:24.080
  • to make a self-imposed deadline for the Flood family.
  • 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:27.230
  • - You know, Julie kept saying,
  • 00:15:27.230 --> 00:15:28.290
  • "We gotta finish it by Thanksgiving.
  • 00:15:28.290 --> 00:15:30.220
  • "We gotta finish it by Thanksgiving,"
  • 00:15:30.220 --> 00:15:32.220
  • and I'm running around going, "It's never gonna happen,"
  • 00:15:32.220 --> 00:15:35.110
  • and she goes, "No, it's gotta happen,"
  • 00:15:35.110 --> 00:15:37.010
  • and I'm going, "It's never."
  • 00:15:37.010 --> 00:15:38.070
  • "No," she goes, "It's gotta happen.
  • 00:15:38.070 --> 00:15:39.160
  • "I want them in there by Thanksgiving."
  • 00:15:39.160 --> 00:15:41.290
  • So we did finish it.
  • 00:15:41.290 --> 00:15:43.240
  • - [Andrew] The day before Thanksgiving 2018,
  • 00:15:43.240 --> 00:15:46.120
  • David Flood and his family
  • 00:15:46.120 --> 00:15:47.250
  • stepped into their new home on wheels.
  • 00:15:47.250 --> 00:15:50.050
  • - We used to sing
  • 00:15:51.080 --> 00:15:52.150
  • "We All Live in a Yellow Submarine" as a family
  • 00:15:52.150 --> 00:15:54.050
  • and liked that song and never imagined
  • 00:15:54.050 --> 00:15:56.250
  • living in a yellow school bus.
  • 00:15:56.250 --> 00:15:58.260
  • It's just been pure joy in Jesus Christ
  • 00:15:58.260 --> 00:16:01.270
  • that He did this for us.
  • 00:16:01.270 --> 00:16:03.190
  • We're very grateful to Vehicles for Changes
  • 00:16:03.190 --> 00:16:06.090
  • 'cause the bus has become the container,
  • 00:16:06.090 --> 00:16:09.200
  • the safety for our family,
  • 00:16:09.200 --> 00:16:10.280
  • the reason we're still together as a family,
  • 00:16:10.280 --> 00:16:13.050
  • and it holds all the difficult
  • 00:16:13.050 --> 00:16:15.100
  • and all the joyous times that we go through.
  • 00:16:15.100 --> 00:16:19.020
  • And so it's meant a lot for our safety and our protection
  • 00:16:19.020 --> 00:16:22.000
  • and holding everything we have as a family.
  • 00:16:22.000 --> 00:16:24.260
  • And my son likes to say
  • 00:16:24.260 --> 00:16:27.290
  • when you look at the bus on the outside,
  • 00:16:27.290 --> 00:16:29.150
  • it just looks like a regular yellow school bus,
  • 00:16:29.150 --> 00:16:31.120
  • but when you go inside, it's like a mansion,
  • 00:16:31.120 --> 00:16:33.220
  • it just opens up.
  • 00:16:33.220 --> 00:16:34.200
  • So it's all perspective.
  • 00:16:34.200 --> 00:16:37.040
  • - [Andrew] Vehicles for Changes has since hired Alex Daniel,
  • 00:16:37.040 --> 00:16:40.050
  • a longtime tiny house builder, to scale up production
  • 00:16:40.050 --> 00:16:43.100
  • on the next several buses.
  • 00:16:43.100 --> 00:16:44.290
  • He says he's thrilled to be involved.
  • 00:16:44.290 --> 00:16:47.220
  • - I'm thankful for a feeling of hope
  • 00:16:47.220 --> 00:16:49.280
  • and what this might bring.
  • 00:16:51.070 --> 00:16:52.260
  • It's a way of connecting with spirit.
  • 00:16:52.260 --> 00:16:55.100
  • I get a high when I'm in here doing this kind of work
  • 00:16:55.100 --> 00:16:58.080
  • and working with the people I'm working with doing this.
  • 00:16:58.080 --> 00:17:01.180
  • Any way to keep families intact.
  • 00:17:01.180 --> 00:17:05.060
  • I think that these buses are just the perfect solution
  • 00:17:05.060 --> 00:17:08.290
  • because, you know, working families, they have a job
  • 00:17:08.290 --> 00:17:12.210
  • and they've got kids and the kids keep going to school,
  • 00:17:12.210 --> 00:17:16.040
  • they don't run away, they stay intact.
  • 00:17:16.040 --> 00:17:19.070
  • - [Andrew] As production ramps up on several new buses,

  • David Flood and his family
  • 00:17:22.000 --> 00:17:23.080

  • David and Leo both share a new appreciation
  • 00:17:25.230 --> 00:17:28.090
  • for the gift of thankfulness this Thanksgiving.
  • 00:17:28.090 --> 00:17:31.000
  • - It's taken a much deeper meaning for us now,
  • 00:17:31.000 --> 00:17:33.120
  • and probably will always be related
  • 00:17:33.120 --> 00:17:34.270
  • to being grateful for God taking us out of the elements
  • 00:17:34.270 --> 00:17:38.220
  • and giving us a safe place to be.
  • 00:17:38.220 --> 00:17:40.070
  • - My Thanksgiving gift last year was housing this family.
  • 00:17:40.070 --> 00:17:44.120
  • It was housing this family.

  • I couldn't ask for a better gift than that, ever.
  • 00:17:48.060 --> 00:17:51.150
  • - Bringing practical help and hope
  • 00:17:53.260 --> 00:17:56.160
  • and dignity and opportunity.
  • 00:17:56.160 --> 00:17:58.210
  • What a wonderful, creative idea.
  • 00:17:58.210 --> 00:18:01.230
  • - And those homes are so pretty.
  • 00:18:01.230 --> 00:18:03.280
  • When they get through, it's a beautiful little home.
  • 00:18:03.280 --> 00:18:08.020
  • - Well, it's really quite remarkable
  • 00:18:08.020 --> 00:18:09.150
  • how you can take small space and make it
  • 00:18:09.150 --> 00:18:11.130
  • work for you. - Yeah, yeah.
  • 00:18:11.130 --> 00:18:12.250

  • idea. - Marvelous.
  • 00:18:16.040 --> 00:18:17.010
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:18.050
  • - Well, it's Thanksgiving, folks,
  • 00:18:18.050 --> 00:18:19.200
  • and paying the electric bill or buying groceries.
  • 00:18:19.200 --> 00:18:23.000
  • That was the choice a widow named Cori York
  • 00:18:23.000 --> 00:18:26.290
  • was forced to make along with her young son.
  • 00:18:26.290 --> 00:18:30.150
  • But not anymore, thanks to the generosity
  • 00:18:30.150 --> 00:18:33.140
  • of people just like you.
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:35.110

  • - [Reporter] Cori York and her son, Hunter,
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:40.200
  • share a special bond.
  • 00:18:40.200 --> 00:18:42.120
  • - He's smart, he's polite, and he's not afraid of life.
  • 00:18:42.120 --> 00:18:46.200
  • Even though he's a fighter, he's kind.
  • 00:18:46.200 --> 00:18:49.200
  • - [Reporter] Cori and Hunter
  • 00:18:49.200 --> 00:18:50.280
  • have been through a lot together.

  • Cori became a single mom after losing her husband
  • 00:18:52.070 --> 00:18:54.280
  • in a drive by shooting.
  • 00:18:54.280 --> 00:18:57.040
  • - They emptied the clip into his vehicle
  • 00:18:57.040 --> 00:18:59.040
  • while he was throwing the newspaper
  • 00:18:59.040 --> 00:19:01.230
  • to supplement our income.
  • 00:19:01.230 --> 00:19:03.060
  • - [Reporter] After her husband died,
  • 00:19:03.060 --> 00:19:04.230
  • Cori found a job manufacturing airplane and auto parts,
  • 00:19:04.230 --> 00:19:08.020
  • getting up every morning at three to go to work.
  • 00:19:08.020 --> 00:19:10.270
  • Even with the steady income,

  • she found herself choosing between buying groceries
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:15.040
  • or paying the electric bill.
  • 00:19:15.040 --> 00:19:16.220
  • - Here, yeah, I'm working, but, based on what you get
  • 00:19:16.220 --> 00:19:20.120
  • as an income as a single parent
  • 00:19:20.120 --> 00:19:22.040
  • and having to run a household, I didn't have anything.
  • 00:19:22.040 --> 00:19:26.140
  • - [Reporter] On top of the financial struggle,
  • 00:19:26.140 --> 00:19:28.040
  • Cori knew she needed emotional and spiritual support.
  • 00:19:28.040 --> 00:19:31.160
  • - You're trying to grasp for anything that you can
  • 00:19:31.160 --> 00:19:34.130
  • to hold onto and it's like, there's nothing else.
  • 00:19:34.130 --> 00:19:39.050
  • I need a mentor.
  • 00:19:39.050 --> 00:19:40.130
  • I need to get plugged in somewhere, I don't know.
  • 00:19:40.130 --> 00:19:42.260
  • - [Reporter] Then Cori found out
  • 00:19:42.260 --> 00:19:44.150
  • about Operation Blessing partner, Hill Country Daily Bread.
  • 00:19:44.150 --> 00:19:47.140
  • - It really is a blessing in a box.
  • 00:19:47.140 --> 00:19:49.240
  • You're gonna get some frozen meat.
  • 00:19:49.240 --> 00:19:51.090
  • You do get rice or you're gonna get pasta.
  • 00:19:51.090 --> 00:19:53.230
  • It lasts, you know?
  • 00:19:53.230 --> 00:19:55.090
  • You can make a full meal and feel normal and feel full
  • 00:19:55.090 --> 00:19:58.290
  • and feel content, have a breath and just say,
  • 00:19:58.290 --> 00:20:02.080
  • "Okay we can eat and we can pay electricity."
  • 00:20:02.080 --> 00:20:04.230
  • - [Reporter] Cori also found the faith-based mentor
  • 00:20:04.230 --> 00:20:07.000
  • she so desperately needed.
  • 00:20:07.000 --> 00:20:08.290
  • - As soon as I met Lulu,
  • 00:20:08.290 --> 00:20:10.010
  • it was instantaneously, "Let's pray.
  • 00:20:10.010 --> 00:20:11.150
  • "What you got going on?"
  • 00:20:11.150 --> 00:20:13.010
  • - [Reporter] Ministry director Agnes Hubbard
  • 00:20:13.010 --> 00:20:14.190
  • says the work they do wouldn't be possible
  • 00:20:14.190 --> 00:20:16.270
  • without the support of Operation Blessing.
  • 00:20:16.270 --> 00:20:19.080
  • - The partnership that we have
  • 00:20:19.080 --> 00:20:20.270
  • with Operation Blessing is vital.
  • 00:20:20.270 --> 00:20:23.130
  • We match the spiritual, the relational,
  • 00:20:23.130 --> 00:20:27.160
  • and the resources together to form this sort of envelope
  • 00:20:27.160 --> 00:20:31.220
  • of care around people in need.
  • 00:20:31.220 --> 00:20:34.050
  • - It makes a huge difference in a single mom's household
  • 00:20:34.050 --> 00:20:38.090
  • to have a stable, reliable plate on the table
  • 00:20:38.090 --> 00:20:42.100
  • and be thankful for that.
  • 00:20:42.100 --> 00:20:43.190
  • - We couldn't afford to do what we do today
  • 00:20:43.190 --> 00:20:45.260
  • without Operation Blessing, so please give, give generously.
  • 00:20:45.260 --> 00:20:50.060
  • It directly impacts the life of people
  • 00:20:50.060 --> 00:20:53.180
  • in the United States, all over.
  • 00:20:53.180 --> 00:20:56.030
  • - Don't hesitate.
  • 00:20:56.030 --> 00:20:57.050
  • The return is astronomical.
  • 00:20:57.050 --> 00:20:59.080
  • Thank you, just to hear that people actually
  • 00:20:59.080 --> 00:21:01.210
  • really want to help other people, it's awesome.
  • 00:21:01.210 --> 00:21:04.010
  • - A few years ago,
  • 00:21:06.140 --> 00:21:07.280
  • we were thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas
  • 00:21:07.280 --> 00:21:10.000
  • and we were thinking about,
  • 00:21:10.000 --> 00:21:11.070
  • well, we're gonna sit down at a lovely table.
  • 00:21:11.070 --> 00:21:13.080
  • We'll have a turkey and all the dressing
  • 00:21:13.080 --> 00:21:16.240
  • and we'll have sweet potatoes or mashed potatoes
  • 00:21:16.240 --> 00:21:20.140
  • and vegetables and pumpkin pie and all that stuff.
  • 00:21:20.140 --> 00:21:23.080
  • And we thought how could we sit down to food like that
  • 00:21:23.080 --> 00:21:27.180
  • and we think people are hungry in America.
  • 00:21:27.180 --> 00:21:30.110
  • So I said to Dede, I said, 'What we'll do,
  • 00:21:30.110 --> 00:21:32.240
  • "you tell me how much money you're gonna spend
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:34.230
  • "on Thanksgiving dinner, whatever it's gonna be,
  • 00:21:34.230 --> 00:21:38.140
  • "and I'll take that money
  • 00:21:38.140 --> 00:21:40.160
  • "and give it to Operation Blessing."
  • 00:21:40.160 --> 00:21:42.290
  • And so, we've tried to make that a thing
  • 00:21:42.290 --> 00:21:46.260
  • that I think is very important
  • 00:21:46.260 --> 00:21:48.270
  • and I recommend it to each of you to think...
  • 00:21:48.270 --> 00:21:52.100
  • Share your Thanksgiving.
  • 00:21:52.100 --> 00:21:53.280
  • Share your Christmas, your holiday.
  • 00:21:53.280 --> 00:21:56.220
  • Add up how much money
  • 00:21:56.220 --> 00:21:57.290
  • you're gonna spend at the grocery store.
  • 00:21:57.290 --> 00:21:59.140
  • Maybe it's $50, maybe it's $100, maybe it's 150.
  • 00:21:59.140 --> 00:22:02.120
  • I don't know how much you spend on groceries,
  • 00:22:02.120 --> 00:22:03.270
  • but whatever it is, write a check for that amount
  • 00:22:03.270 --> 00:22:07.010
  • and give it Operation Blessing's special holiday gift
  • 00:22:07.010 --> 00:22:09.280
  • and say, "You can count on me."
  • 00:22:09.280 --> 00:22:11.220
  • So pick up the phone, call in 1-800-700-7000
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:16.220
  • and say, "This is my gift for the holidays."
  • 00:22:17.260 --> 00:22:20.200
  • And you want to say special holiday appeal, that's fine too.
  • 00:22:20.200 --> 00:22:25.090
  • And if you do, I want to send you these verses from Proverbs
  • 00:22:25.090 --> 00:22:30.080
  • on favor, wisdom, and anointing.
  • 00:22:30.080 --> 00:22:32.230
  • I was reading Ezekiel today, this morning,
  • 00:22:32.230 --> 00:22:36.140
  • and I saw God saying to the people,
  • 00:22:37.170 --> 00:22:40.000
  • "I will withdraw my favor.
  • 00:22:40.000 --> 00:22:42.160
  • "I will withdraw my favor."
  • 00:22:42.160 --> 00:22:45.170
  • The favor of God is so important
  • 00:22:45.170 --> 00:22:48.020
  • and we don't want Him to withdraw it.
  • 00:22:48.020 --> 00:22:50.070
  • These are scriptures on favor and the anointing and wisdom.
  • 00:22:50.070 --> 00:22:55.040
  • The three things I've always asked for
  • 00:22:55.040 --> 00:22:56.210
  • are wisdom, favor, and anointing.
  • 00:22:56.210 --> 00:22:58.180
  • So we'll give this to you as our gift to you
  • 00:22:58.180 --> 00:23:01.100
  • at this special Thanksgiving.
  • 00:23:01.100 --> 00:23:03.030
  • So thank you so much for being with us
  • 00:23:03.030 --> 00:23:04.270
  • and much, much more exciting things ahead.
  • 00:23:04.270 --> 00:23:07.070
  • Terry.
  • 00:23:07.070 --> 00:23:08.230
  • - Well still ahead, are you smelling tantalizing turkey
  • 00:23:08.230 --> 00:23:11.040
  • cooking in your oven?
  • 00:23:11.040 --> 00:23:12.160
  • Have you got your Thanksgiving dinner underway?
  • 00:23:12.160 --> 00:23:15.070
  • Well what about tomorrow?
  • 00:23:15.070 --> 00:23:16.230
  • What are you going to do
  • 00:23:16.230 --> 00:23:17.260
  • with all those leftovers the day after?

  • TV host Ellie Krieger has some tasty ideas coming up.
  • 00:23:20.250 --> 00:23:25.160
  • Plus, kidnapped from his home, sold into slavery,
  • 00:23:25.160 --> 00:23:28.290
  • and shipped to Spain.
  • 00:23:28.290 --> 00:23:30.240
  • Who was this man named Squanto?
  • 00:23:30.240 --> 00:23:33.110
  • And without him, why would there be no Thanksgiving?
  • 00:23:33.110 --> 00:23:36.220
  • (dramatic music)
  • 00:23:36.220 --> 00:23:39.140

  • Happy Thanksgiving. - Thank you, and you too.

  • You know, we all love all those traditional things
  • 00:27:14.150 --> 00:27:16.260
  • that we do for Thanksgiving, but then there is the day after
  • 00:27:16.260 --> 00:27:20.120
  • and the next day can sometimes be just as much work
  • 00:27:20.120 --> 00:27:23.120
  • trying to figure out where do I house all of this
  • 00:27:23.120 --> 00:27:25.120
  • in my refrigerator or - Oh yeah.
  • 00:27:25.120 --> 00:27:26.190
  • what do I do with this. - And also, right now,
  • 00:27:26.190 --> 00:27:28.010
  • you might feel you'll never be hungry again.
  • 00:27:28.010 --> 00:27:29.270
  • (Terry laughs) But I promise,
  • 00:27:29.270 --> 00:27:30.250
  • you will be hungry tomorrow.
  • 00:27:30.250 --> 00:27:32.160
  • - So how do we make the day after simple?
  • 00:27:32.160 --> 00:27:35.010
  • - Yeah, and making it easy and no work.
  • 00:27:35.010 --> 00:27:37.100
  • Everyone wants to be relaxing the day after, absolutely.
  • 00:27:37.100 --> 00:27:40.090
  • So one pot,
  • 00:27:40.090 --> 00:27:41.170
  • - Yes. - one pot options,
  • 00:27:41.170 --> 00:27:43.040
  • and I have so many to share with you
  • 00:27:43.040 --> 00:27:45.020
  • that use up those leftovers too.
  • 00:27:45.020 --> 00:27:47.170
  • - That wonderful new cookbook that you have out,
  • 00:27:47.170 --> 00:27:50.050
  • the "Whole in One," that's W-H-O-L-E
  • 00:27:50.050 --> 00:27:52.110
  • - Yes. - because it's the whole
  • 00:27:52.110 --> 00:27:53.190
  • meal. - Yes, it's complete,
  • 00:27:53.190 --> 00:27:55.030
  • healthy meals in one sheet pan, pot, or skillet.
  • 00:27:55.030 --> 00:27:57.080
  • - That's awesome.
  • 00:27:57.080 --> 00:27:58.150
  • 125 recipes you have - Yes and many of them
  • 00:27:58.150 --> 00:28:00.030
  • - in there. - are great ways
  • 00:28:00.030 --> 00:28:01.290
  • to use up your Thanksgiving leftovers,
  • 00:28:01.290 --> 00:28:04.000
  • - [Terry] Yes.
  • 00:28:04.000 --> 00:28:05.060
  • - and it's really super simple
  • 00:28:05.060 --> 00:28:06.230
  • so I was gonna share some.
  • 00:28:06.230 --> 00:28:08.020
  • - What do you consider like a whole meal
  • 00:28:08.020 --> 00:28:10.060
  • when you talk about prepping something
  • 00:28:10.060 --> 00:28:11.270
  • and making it all.
  • 00:28:11.270 --> 00:28:12.220
  • What are the elements
  • 00:28:12.220 --> 00:28:14.040
  • you put into that? - What I really look for,
  • 00:28:14.040 --> 00:28:15.190
  • as a dietician and a chef, it has to be delicious,
  • 00:28:15.190 --> 00:28:18.050
  • it has to be compellingly satisfying.
  • 00:28:18.050 --> 00:28:20.230
  • But from a nutritional point of view,
  • 00:28:20.230 --> 00:28:22.080
  • you want to make sure that it has adequate protein.
  • 00:28:22.080 --> 00:28:24.130
  • So even if the recipes are vegetarian in the book,
  • 00:28:24.130 --> 00:28:27.160
  • then they have enough protein to be satisfying.
  • 00:28:27.160 --> 00:28:30.090
  • And then, if it has meat in it,
  • 00:28:30.090 --> 00:28:31.260
  • you want to make sure it has a lot of vegetables
  • 00:28:31.260 --> 00:28:33.230
  • and/or whole grain so that it's rich in fiber
  • 00:28:33.230 --> 00:28:36.210
  • and phytonutrients and all that wonderful, good stuff.
  • 00:28:36.210 --> 00:28:39.110
  • An overall balance.
  • 00:28:39.110 --> 00:28:40.280
  • - So what we're telling you is Ellie's done the work for us.
  • 00:28:40.280 --> 00:28:43.160
  • - Yes. - How awesome is that?
  • 00:28:43.160 --> 00:28:44.250
  • - Yes, I've lost some sleep, I'll tell you,
  • 00:28:44.250 --> 00:28:47.220
  • thinking about some of these ideas,
  • 00:28:47.220 --> 00:28:49.090
  • so I'm really proud of them and I think
  • 00:28:49.090 --> 00:28:51.130
  • it's really fun. - It's great
  • 00:28:51.130 --> 00:28:52.080
  • that you think that way.
  • 00:28:52.080 --> 00:28:53.250
  • Let's look at what you've brought to show us today.
  • 00:28:53.250 --> 00:28:55.050
  • You're simmering some onions
  • 00:28:55.050 --> 00:28:56.200
  • here. - Yeah, so I have
  • 00:28:56.200 --> 00:28:57.150
  • some onions here.
  • 00:28:57.150 --> 00:28:58.240
  • I'm making these, well, in the book,
  • 00:28:58.240 --> 00:29:00.210
  • it's chicken tinga tacos, but for Thanksgiving,
  • 00:29:00.210 --> 00:29:03.170
  • it's turkey. - Turkey tinga tacos.
  • 00:29:03.170 --> 00:29:04.240
  • - And it's a great way to use leftover turkey.
  • 00:29:04.240 --> 00:29:07.030
  • So I just have some onions and garlic,
  • 00:29:07.030 --> 00:29:10.050
  • which I've just simmered here.
  • 00:29:10.050 --> 00:29:11.170
  • And then really, no chopping.
  • 00:29:11.170 --> 00:29:13.140
  • It's all happening in one pot.
  • 00:29:13.140 --> 00:29:15.040
  • It's really fun.
  • 00:29:15.040 --> 00:29:16.120
  • This is just basically a can of pureed tomatoes,
  • 00:29:16.120 --> 00:29:18.200
  • a 14-ounce can.
  • 00:29:18.200 --> 00:29:19.290
  • And then I use some salsa verde,
  • 00:29:19.290 --> 00:29:22.260
  • Again, just a jar of salsa verde.
  • 00:29:22.260 --> 00:29:26.220
  • So again, it's really just super simple.
  • 00:29:26.220 --> 00:29:30.230
  • And then I'm gonna season that up with some chipotle pepper.
  • 00:29:30.230 --> 00:29:33.230
  • And this comes in a can too.
  • 00:29:33.230 --> 00:29:34.270
  • - Really? - There's usually
  • 00:29:34.270 --> 00:29:36.070
  • quite a bit in the can.
  • 00:29:36.070 --> 00:29:37.140
  • You don't want to use a lot because it has
  • 00:29:37.140 --> 00:29:38.260
  • a little heat to it, - Hot, yeah.
  • 00:29:38.260 --> 00:29:40.030
  • - but it gives this wonderful smokey taste
  • 00:29:40.030 --> 00:29:42.250
  • that I just, - Oh, yes.
  • 00:29:42.250 --> 00:29:44.030
  • I just got the blast. - You can smell it.
  • 00:29:44.030 --> 00:29:44.240
  • It's lovely.
  • 00:29:44.240 --> 00:29:45.230
  • So you can put that in to taste
  • 00:29:45.230 --> 00:29:47.120
  • and then some of the adobe sauce that comes in the can.
  • 00:29:47.120 --> 00:29:50.120
  • And then, with the leftover that's in the can,
  • 00:29:50.120 --> 00:29:53.050
  • it's really easy to freeze.
  • 00:29:53.050 --> 00:29:54.130
  • You just put it in little baggies
  • 00:29:54.130 --> 00:29:55.150
  • and then you can - Oh, okay.
  • 00:29:55.150 --> 00:29:57.020
  • - have that, so I like that - Use it whenever you wish.
  • 00:29:57.020 --> 00:29:57.270
  • - as a tip.
  • 00:29:57.270 --> 00:29:58.260
  • Some salt and pepper, of course.
  • 00:29:58.260 --> 00:30:00.240
  • And then you just simmer this down,
  • 00:30:00.240 --> 00:30:03.060
  • and a little bit of broth,
  • 00:30:03.060 --> 00:30:04.150
  • and then you just simmer this down.
  • 00:30:04.150 --> 00:30:05.240
  • - [Terry] And a little of this.
  • 00:30:05.240 --> 00:30:06.260
  • This is here. - So we can just
  • 00:30:06.260 --> 00:30:08.000
  • dump that in if you like.
  • 00:30:08.000 --> 00:30:09.240
  • And that's the idea.
  • 00:30:09.240 --> 00:30:10.240
  • You simmer this down until it's nice
  • 00:30:13.030 --> 00:30:14.100
  • - You're looking for-- - and concentrated.
  • 00:30:14.100 --> 00:30:15.240
  • And I'll show you what it winds up looking like.
  • 00:30:15.240 --> 00:30:16.290
  • This.
  • 00:30:16.290 --> 00:30:17.240
  • Till it's nice and concentrated.
  • 00:30:19.070 --> 00:30:20.200
  • - Ooh, yes. - And you have this
  • 00:30:20.200 --> 00:30:21.180
  • very richly flavorful sauce now
  • 00:30:21.180 --> 00:30:24.010
  • because it's all concentrated in there.
  • 00:30:24.010 --> 00:30:26.020
  • And then you add your turkey
  • 00:30:26.020 --> 00:30:27.190
  • right in. - Okay.
  • 00:30:27.190 --> 00:30:29.030
  • - And then you just cook this a little bit and the smoke
  • 00:30:29.030 --> 00:30:31.090
  • - Ooh, wow. - you really get that
  • 00:30:31.090 --> 00:30:32.040
  • smokey essence now, huh?
  • 00:30:32.040 --> 00:30:33.200
  • - Yes. - Then you just
  • 00:30:33.200 --> 00:30:34.280
  • stir in that turkey and you coat it all
  • 00:30:34.280 --> 00:30:38.180
  • and then you wind up with your taco mixture here.
  • 00:30:38.180 --> 00:30:42.060
  • - That is wonderful. - So tacos not just for Taco
  • 00:30:43.210 --> 00:30:45.040
  • Tuesday, you know. - Yes.
  • 00:30:45.040 --> 00:30:46.190
  • - You can have Taco Friday now too, I guess, right?
  • 00:30:46.190 --> 00:30:49.080
  • But this would definitely last
  • 00:30:49.080 --> 00:30:50.220
  • in the fridge for a few days actually.
  • 00:30:50.220 --> 00:30:52.180
  • - That's awesome. - So you get that,
  • 00:30:52.180 --> 00:30:54.050
  • and then, you basically, you put out all the ingredients,
  • 00:30:54.050 --> 00:30:56.260
  • all the toppings, just like your regular soft tacos.
  • 00:30:56.260 --> 00:30:59.190
  • I like to use whole wheat or corn tortillas.
  • 00:30:59.190 --> 00:31:03.020
  • And you kinda build your tacos.
  • 00:31:03.020 --> 00:31:05.260
  • So that's really fun.
  • 00:31:06.210 --> 00:31:07.250
  • We have some built there.
  • 00:31:07.250 --> 00:31:09.020
  • - Here, you can see the taco's already built.
  • 00:31:09.020 --> 00:31:11.150
  • You know, I often marvel when we talk
  • 00:31:11.150 --> 00:31:14.280
  • that you think in these terms,
  • 00:31:14.280 --> 00:31:16.240
  • but when you start from scratch,
  • 00:31:16.240 --> 00:31:18.250
  • how do you know how much to add to things
  • 00:31:18.250 --> 00:31:20.280
  • as you're creating and building
  • 00:31:20.280 --> 00:31:22.150
  • and-- - Oh my gosh.
  • 00:31:22.150 --> 00:31:23.100
  • So I usually...
  • 00:31:23.100 --> 00:31:25.100
  • Well, I have sort of a sense of it.
  • 00:31:25.100 --> 00:31:26.170
  • I've been cooking for so long now.
  • 00:31:26.170 --> 00:31:27.290
  • - You probably don't even - I have hundreds
  • 00:31:27.290 --> 00:31:28.270
  • - Measure. - of recipes.
  • 00:31:28.270 --> 00:31:30.050
  • - Like a little of this, a little of
  • 00:31:30.050 --> 00:31:31.040
  • that. - Well, when I'm testing
  • 00:31:31.040 --> 00:31:32.160
  • recipes, I have to measure really carefully.
  • 00:31:32.160 --> 00:31:34.020
  • When I'm cooking at home-- - So you can teach others.
  • 00:31:34.020 --> 00:31:35.000
  • - Exactly. - Yes.
  • 00:31:35.000 --> 00:31:36.070
  • - And also, so I can do the nutrition analysis
  • 00:31:36.070 --> 00:31:37.210
  • because, for all the recipes in the book
  • 00:31:37.210 --> 00:31:39.050
  • I have the full nutrition analysis.
  • 00:31:39.050 --> 00:31:40.210
  • - Awesome. - And then I want to give you
  • 00:31:40.210 --> 00:31:42.180
  • adequate measures so that you know,
  • 00:31:42.180 --> 00:31:44.240
  • so there's no question marks, so it's foolproof.
  • 00:31:44.240 --> 00:31:47.150
  • - So this is one option.
  • 00:31:47.150 --> 00:31:48.180
  • - Yes. - Let's move
  • 00:31:48.180 --> 00:31:50.000
  • - Ooh, more choices. - down here and take a look
  • 00:31:50.000 --> 00:31:50.240
  • at some of the others.
  • 00:31:50.240 --> 00:31:51.110
  • - Yes.
  • 00:31:51.110 --> 00:31:52.250
  • - Ooh, that looks wonderful. - This is a grain bowl.
  • 00:31:52.250 --> 00:31:54.180
  • So this is made in a single skillet.
  • 00:31:54.180 --> 00:31:56.080
  • So you see that the tacos were also
  • 00:31:56.080 --> 00:31:58.190
  • one skillet. - Uh-huh.
  • 00:31:58.190 --> 00:32:00.060
  • - [Ellie] Let's shut this off here so that doesn't burn.
  • 00:32:00.060 --> 00:32:02.120
  • Then we have the,
  • 00:32:02.120 --> 00:32:04.080
  • this is a grain bowl.
  • 00:32:04.080 --> 00:32:05.230
  • It's made in a single-- - So it's warm when you--
  • 00:32:05.230 --> 00:32:07.120
  • - So the grain is warm
  • 00:32:07.120 --> 00:32:09.040
  • and then the vegetables are warm and I use,
  • 00:32:09.040 --> 00:32:11.240
  • in the recipe in the book, it's chicken, but you can use
  • 00:32:11.240 --> 00:32:14.140
  • turkey here. - Turkey.
  • 00:32:14.140 --> 00:32:15.180
  • - And I also saute the spinach,
  • 00:32:15.180 --> 00:32:18.050
  • but you can use any leftover vegetables on a grain bowl.
  • 00:32:18.050 --> 00:32:21.100
  • That's what's great about a grain bowl.
  • 00:32:21.100 --> 00:32:23.010
  • So I put a mix of cooked and fresh vegetables
  • 00:32:23.010 --> 00:32:26.060
  • so you have that cool-warm contrast which is lovely,
  • 00:32:26.060 --> 00:32:29.170
  • and then, you get the dressing is a tahini dressing.
  • 00:32:29.170 --> 00:32:33.130
  • Tahini is a sesame paste and it's really so simple.
  • 00:32:33.130 --> 00:32:36.160
  • It's literally water, lemon juice, and tahini
  • 00:32:36.160 --> 00:32:39.190
  • and you stir it together and it's creamy and it's wonderful
  • 00:32:39.190 --> 00:32:42.240
  • and it goes perfect with the holiday leftovers.
  • 00:32:42.240 --> 00:32:43.210
  • - Awesome. - You could put
  • 00:32:43.210 --> 00:32:45.270
  • pretty much any, - It's so
  • 00:32:45.270 --> 00:32:48.020
  • - you could put squash - healthy,
  • 00:32:48.020 --> 00:32:49.040
  • - on there. - but delicious looking.
  • 00:32:49.040 --> 00:32:50.030
  • - Healthy and delicious.
  • 00:32:50.030 --> 00:32:51.100
  • That's the sweet spot I'm always looking for.
  • 00:32:51.100 --> 00:32:54.120
  • That's basically the key to good living.
  • 00:32:54.120 --> 00:32:57.110
  • - [Terry] Yes, exactly.
  • 00:32:57.110 --> 00:32:58.140
  • What is this?
  • 00:32:58.140 --> 00:32:59.200
  • - So this is a soup, and this is,
  • 00:32:59.200 --> 00:33:02.290
  • what I do with the soup, it's very hearty,
  • 00:33:02.290 --> 00:33:05.110
  • so this is a one-pot meal.
  • 00:33:05.110 --> 00:33:07.020
  • And you can use, again, some holiday leftovers for this.
  • 00:33:07.020 --> 00:33:10.210
  • You could put leftover squash, green beans, peas, whatever.
  • 00:33:10.210 --> 00:33:14.220
  • And I put some quinoa in there
  • 00:33:14.220 --> 00:33:16.230
  • - [Terry] Oh, that's great.
  • 00:33:16.230 --> 00:33:17.220
  • - and turkey. - I love quinoa
  • 00:33:17.220 --> 00:33:18.290
  • - You can make it a complete meal.
  • 00:33:18.290 --> 00:33:20.050
  • The quinoa really-- - Make it a little more
  • 00:33:20.050 --> 00:33:21.130
  • filling and satisfying. - Exactly, but then it's
  • 00:33:21.130 --> 00:33:22.190
  • a meal in a bowl and that's good fuel
  • 00:33:22.190 --> 00:33:24.290
  • for, like, holiday shopping
  • 00:33:24.290 --> 00:33:26.290
  • too. - Well, you know,
  • 00:33:26.290 --> 00:33:28.070
  • one of the things about Thanksgiving
  • 00:33:28.070 --> 00:33:29.210
  • is there are so many desserts that are available to us,
  • 00:33:29.210 --> 00:33:31.070
  • but not many of them really good for us.
  • 00:33:31.070 --> 00:33:33.100
  • But I see you have a fruit dessert.
  • 00:33:33.100 --> 00:33:35.080
  • I love that idea. - Yes, so in the book,
  • 00:33:35.080 --> 00:33:37.000
  • I have, all the recipes are complete meals
  • 00:33:37.000 --> 00:33:39.070
  • except the desserts, which I have,
  • 00:33:39.070 --> 00:33:41.050
  • of course, we covered for better for you desserts,
  • 00:33:41.050 --> 00:33:44.060
  • but also, you want them to really satisfy your sweet tooth.
  • 00:33:44.060 --> 00:33:46.250
  • So here, it's roasted pears.
  • 00:33:46.250 --> 00:33:48.290
  • And you could roast apples or figs or grapes,
  • 00:33:48.290 --> 00:33:52.290
  • for example. - Whatever you love, yes.
  • 00:33:52.290 --> 00:33:54.130
  • - And then I put that over just some crushed up ginger snaps
  • 00:33:54.130 --> 00:33:57.100
  • - Ooh. - so that adds
  • 00:33:57.100 --> 00:33:59.040
  • a little element.
  • 00:33:59.040 --> 00:34:00.040
  • It makes it really desserty.
  • 00:34:00.040 --> 00:34:01.110
  • And then you could use some yogurt,
  • 00:34:01.110 --> 00:34:04.010
  • here's marscapone cheese,
  • 00:34:04.010 --> 00:34:06.000
  • but you could do it with yogurt if you want.
  • 00:34:06.000 --> 00:34:07.290
  • And then, what you could do nicely too,
  • 00:34:07.290 --> 00:34:10.040
  • if you have leftover cranberry sauce,
  • 00:34:10.040 --> 00:34:12.160
  • you can just put a dollop.
  • 00:34:12.160 --> 00:34:13.260
  • - A little dollop. - It would be lovely on there.
  • 00:34:13.260 --> 00:34:15.020
  • - Beautiful.
  • 00:34:15.020 --> 00:34:16.180
  • Well, so are all the other pictures in Ellie's book.
  • 00:34:16.180 --> 00:34:19.090
  • Can I just grab this - Oh,
  • 00:34:19.090 --> 00:34:20.090
  • - from here? - thank you.
  • 00:34:20.090 --> 00:34:21.230
  • - You're probably wanting to shoot it over here.
  • 00:34:21.230 --> 00:34:23.000
  • because it's easier for the camera.
  • 00:34:23.000 --> 00:34:24.200
  • But I'm just gonna tell you,
  • 00:34:24.200 --> 00:34:25.270
  • her book is called "Whole in One."
  • 00:34:25.270 --> 00:34:27.200
  • It's available wherever books are sold.
  • 00:34:27.200 --> 00:34:30.000
  • Makes a great Christmas gift.
  • 00:34:30.000 --> 00:34:31.260
  • So here we are celebrating Thanksgiving.
  • 00:34:31.260 --> 00:34:34.150
  • Gives you some great ideas, creative ideas for tomorrow
  • 00:34:34.150 --> 00:34:37.250
  • and days afterwards, but also a great Christmas gift
  • 00:34:37.250 --> 00:34:40.280
  • for those who love to cook in your life.
  • 00:34:40.280 --> 00:34:42.110
  • Thank you. - Thank you
  • 00:34:42.110 --> 00:34:43.180
  • so much. - You always make it a joy
  • 00:34:43.180 --> 00:34:44.250
  • - Lovely to be here. - to just kind of
  • 00:34:44.250 --> 00:34:46.080
  • look at all the creations you bring with you.
  • 00:34:46.080 --> 00:34:47.260
  • - And it smells so good.
  • 00:34:47.260 --> 00:34:49.080
  • - Oh, it does.
  • 00:34:49.080 --> 00:34:50.060
  • I wish there was smell-a-vision.
  • 00:34:50.060 --> 00:34:51.060

  • Virginia asks this:

  • Pat, what is your family's tradition on Thanksgiving?
  • 00:34:59.020 --> 00:35:01.150

  • painters, welders, sculptors, seamstresses, and others
  • 00:38:29.170 --> 00:38:33.220
  • to build and maintain every balloon, float, and costume.
  • 00:38:33.220 --> 00:38:37.190
  • - Working on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade,
  • 00:38:37.190 --> 00:38:41.150
  • you get to work on some magic.
  • 00:38:41.150 --> 00:38:43.180
  • - [Reporter] But this is no child's play.
  • 00:38:44.240 --> 00:38:46.160
  • Some of these pieces tower four stories high,
  • 00:38:46.160 --> 00:38:49.190
  • and the work that starts the first of the year
  • 00:38:49.190 --> 00:38:52.120
  • takes creativity, hard work, and long hours.
  • 00:38:52.120 --> 00:38:55.290
  • - It's not just the skillset
  • 00:38:56.290 --> 00:38:58.290
  • and the talent that you're looking for; it's the passion.
  • 00:38:58.290 --> 00:39:02.100
  • - [Reporter] Brett Garrity remembers catching the bug
  • 00:39:02.100 --> 00:39:04.160
  • when he was a boy.
  • 00:39:04.160 --> 00:39:05.210
  • - I saw my first parade in 1993,
  • 00:39:05.210 --> 00:39:08.110
  • and immediately, I was drawn to it.
  • 00:39:08.110 --> 00:39:10.070
  • I just thought it was the coolest thing.
  • 00:39:10.070 --> 00:39:11.260
  • - [Reporter] So at 15 years old,
  • 00:39:11.260 --> 00:39:13.080
  • he wrote then studio director Manfred Bass a letter
  • 00:39:13.080 --> 00:39:16.070
  • asking for a job.
  • 00:39:16.070 --> 00:39:18.030
  • Brett didn't realize the studio had kept the letter.
  • 00:39:18.030 --> 00:39:21.080
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:39:21.080 --> 00:39:23.010
  • - And he told me, "When you turn 16, give me a call
  • 00:39:23.010 --> 00:39:25.190
  • "and we'll see what we can do."
  • 00:39:25.190 --> 00:39:26.230
  • So when I turned 16, I call him.
  • 00:39:26.230 --> 00:39:28.210
  • They gave me a summer internship
  • 00:39:28.210 --> 00:39:30.030
  • and I've been here ever since.
  • 00:39:30.030 --> 00:39:31.290
  • - [Reporter] In addition to the floats and balloons,
  • 00:39:31.290 --> 00:39:33.200
  • it takes thousands of volunteers
  • 00:39:33.200 --> 00:39:35.200
  • to make the parade a success.
  • 00:39:35.200 --> 00:39:37.140
  • And most of them are in costume.
  • 00:39:38.260 --> 00:39:40.240
  • - This is Macy's costume shop
  • 00:39:43.200 --> 00:39:45.280
  • here in the Macy's parade studio
  • 00:39:45.280 --> 00:39:47.290
  • and we have about 5.000 costumes in this room.
  • 00:39:47.290 --> 00:39:52.280
  • - [Reporter] That includes the most famous suit of all.
  • 00:39:54.120 --> 00:39:56.220
  • - There's something special about Santa.
  • 00:39:57.290 --> 00:39:59.240
  • I remember seeing him coming in
  • 00:39:59.240 --> 00:40:01.260
  • and it was the most exciting thing
  • 00:40:01.260 --> 00:40:03.030
  • as a six-year-old to see Santa.
  • 00:40:03.030 --> 00:40:04.280
  • And that was the real Santa.
  • 00:40:04.280 --> 00:40:06.230
  • That wasn't Santa's helper.
  • 00:40:06.230 --> 00:40:08.070
  • And now, I know Santa personally.
  • 00:40:08.070 --> 00:40:11.030
  • Like, he sends me birthday cards.
  • 00:40:11.030 --> 00:40:12.170
  • It's really awesome.
  • 00:40:12.170 --> 00:40:13.190
  • - [Reporter] And as always, it's Santa's arrival
  • 00:40:15.150 --> 00:40:17.240
  • that signals the end of the parade.
  • 00:40:17.240 --> 00:40:20.060
  • Now, the costumes will be put away, the floats dismantled,
  • 00:40:20.060 --> 00:40:23.160
  • and everyone takes a well-deserved break
  • 00:40:23.160 --> 00:40:25.260
  • after another successful kick-off to the holiday season.
  • 00:40:25.260 --> 00:40:29.090
  • - You know, when you see the kind of work
  • 00:40:32.190 --> 00:40:34.050
  • that goes into this event, - Oh, it's amazing.
  • 00:40:34.050 --> 00:40:36.070
  • - you pray the weather is good.
  • 00:40:36.070 --> 00:40:37.250
  • - Yeah, but I remember one, it was so cold
  • 00:40:37.250 --> 00:40:40.080
  • and it was just freezing cold,
  • 00:40:40.080 --> 00:40:42.010
  • and those poor girls out there
  • 00:40:42.010 --> 00:40:43.110
  • in those skimpy costumes. - Costumes.
  • 00:40:43.110 --> 00:40:45.130
  • - Oh man. - And the wind, I think,
  • 00:40:45.130 --> 00:40:46.250
  • is the big issue. - But those marching bands
  • 00:40:46.250 --> 00:40:49.000
  • and those schools that come up there,
  • 00:40:49.000 --> 00:40:50.040
  • I mean, it's extraordinary.
  • 00:40:50.040 --> 00:40:52.000
  • It's one of the most,
  • 00:40:52.000 --> 00:40:53.060
  • there's nothing in America
  • 00:40:53.060 --> 00:40:54.140
  • - Iconic, really. - could compare.
  • 00:40:54.140 --> 00:40:55.190
  • Oh, it's fabulous. - It is,
  • 00:40:55.190 --> 00:40:56.290
  • it's beautiful. - Well, our thanks to Mikey's.

  • some of you have sent in questions for Pat
  • 00:43:43.280 --> 00:43:45.180
  • regarding his family's traditions,
  • 00:43:45.180 --> 00:43:47.110
  • and this first one comes from Virginia,
  • 00:43:47.110 --> 00:43:49.040
  • who says: What are your family's traditions on Thanksgiving?
  • 00:43:49.040 --> 00:43:52.170
  • - The one that I like the best,
  • 00:43:52.170 --> 00:43:53.290
  • we haven't done it all the time,
  • 00:43:53.290 --> 00:43:55.080
  • but I wanted to bring some of the students
  • 00:43:55.080 --> 00:43:59.210
  • at Regent University who didn't have a Thanksgiving
  • 00:43:59.210 --> 00:44:03.220
  • and bring them home.
  • 00:44:03.220 --> 00:44:05.080
  • And we had 10 and our dean liked to play guitar and sing
  • 00:44:05.080 --> 00:44:10.080
  • - Oh, that's a great idea. - country music,
  • 00:44:13.050 --> 00:44:14.160
  • so the two of us, we got together
  • 00:44:14.160 --> 00:44:16.100
  • in the living room after lunch
  • 00:44:16.100 --> 00:44:19.020
  • and we sang stuff like the Wreck of Old 98 and whatever.
  • 00:44:19.020 --> 00:44:23.080
  • - (laughs) All those great
  • 00:44:23.080 --> 00:44:26.090
  • Thanksgiving songs. - Yeah, and Jole Blon.
  • 00:44:26.090 --> 00:44:29.120
  • I heard the wreck on the highway.
  • 00:44:29.120 --> 00:44:31.000
  • I didn't see nobody pray, you know that.
  • 00:44:31.000 --> 00:44:33.110
  • Well he and I were singing together
  • 00:44:33.110 --> 00:44:35.070
  • I mean, you think, here's the chancellor
  • 00:44:35.070 --> 00:44:38.000
  • and the dean singing country western.
  • 00:44:38.000 --> 00:44:40.210
  • And then we had each one give their testimony.
  • 00:44:40.210 --> 00:44:44.120
  • And they came from Egypt, they came from Poland,
  • 00:44:44.120 --> 00:44:46.220
  • they came from Russia and so forth.
  • 00:44:46.220 --> 00:44:49.150
  • They had wonderful testimonies of how they found the Lord
  • 00:44:50.270 --> 00:44:53.190
  • and what they'd, so it was a glorious Christmas.
  • 00:44:53.190 --> 00:44:55.270
  • I really enjoyed it. - Thanksgiving, yeah.
  • 00:44:55.270 --> 00:44:57.110
  • That's great.
  • 00:44:57.110 --> 00:44:58.120
  • Okay, this is Melanie, who says:
  • 00:44:58.120 --> 00:45:00.110
  • I want to incorporate Jesus
  • 00:45:00.110 --> 00:45:02.180
  • and the true reason for the season
  • 00:45:02.180 --> 00:45:04.020
  • into my young family's holiday traditions.
  • 00:45:04.020 --> 00:45:06.120
  • How did you incorporate Jesus
  • 00:45:06.120 --> 00:45:07.210
  • into your family's Christmas traditions?
  • 00:45:07.210 --> 00:45:10.070
  • - All right, first of all, when I was a kid growing up,
  • 00:45:10.070 --> 00:45:13.100
  • my mother played the Santa Claus thing,
  • 00:45:13.100 --> 00:45:15.070
  • I mean, really played it big time,
  • 00:45:15.070 --> 00:45:17.170
  • and Santa's coming and we heard the reindeer
  • 00:45:17.170 --> 00:45:19.200
  • and all that stuff.
  • 00:45:19.200 --> 00:45:21.110
  • And I'm sitting there waiting for the reindeer to come
  • 00:45:21.110 --> 00:45:24.000
  • and Santa to come down the chimney and all that stuff.
  • 00:45:24.000 --> 00:45:26.250
  • When I was older, my son, Gordon, really believed
  • 00:45:26.250 --> 00:45:31.250
  • that those old rummies in those red suits
  • 00:45:33.030 --> 00:45:36.160
  • downtown in New York was Santa Claus,
  • 00:45:36.160 --> 00:45:39.010
  • and I said, "Look, that isn't Santa Claus.
  • 00:45:39.010 --> 00:45:41.140
  • "He's a make-believe, but Jesus is what's real."
  • 00:45:41.140 --> 00:45:44.100
  • So I had to go over.
  • 00:45:44.100 --> 00:45:45.160
  • Well he didn't believe that.
  • 00:45:45.160 --> 00:45:47.020
  • I said, "Look, these guys are,
  • 00:45:47.020 --> 00:45:49.080
  • "they pick 'em up."
  • 00:45:49.080 --> 00:45:50.050
  • So anyhow, before long,
  • 00:45:50.050 --> 00:45:52.180
  • I began to show him that it was Jesus.
  • 00:45:52.180 --> 00:45:54.290
  • But we play games.
  • 00:45:54.290 --> 00:45:56.240
  • I would be Mr. Claus and my wife would be Mrs. Claus
  • 00:45:56.240 --> 00:46:01.160
  • and we'd have to wake up at one o'clock in the morning
  • 00:46:01.160 --> 00:46:04.150
  • putting together all those toys.
  • 00:46:04.150 --> 00:46:05.290
  • I mean, it was great fun, but the big thing was
  • 00:46:05.290 --> 00:46:09.170
  • we made clear that everybody understood
  • 00:46:09.170 --> 00:46:11.240
  • that this was the day, it was the birth of Jesus
  • 00:46:11.240 --> 00:46:14.120
  • and Santa Claus was make-believe, Jesus was real.
  • 00:46:14.120 --> 00:46:17.100
  • We had to get that through to the people.
  • 00:46:17.100 --> 00:46:19.120
  • We're not talking about myth.
  • 00:46:19.120 --> 00:46:20.210
  • We're talking about the reality,
  • 00:46:20.210 --> 00:46:22.150
  • and this is the birthday of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:46:22.150 --> 00:46:24.170
  • And we made it very clear to ourselves and our family
  • 00:46:24.170 --> 00:46:27.200
  • and we worship Jesus on Christmas Day.
  • 00:46:27.200 --> 00:46:30.270
  • We leave you today with an amazing story
  • 00:46:30.270 --> 00:46:32.270
  • of the first Thanksgiving and a miraculous answer to prayer.
  • 00:46:32.270 --> 00:46:37.080
  • We wish you and your loved ones a very happy Thanksgiving.
  • 00:46:37.080 --> 00:46:40.290
  • And now, here is the captivating story of Squanto.
  • 00:46:40.290 --> 00:46:45.120
  • (somber music)
  • 00:46:47.080 --> 00:46:49.250
  • - Thy help cometh from the Lord and keepeth Israel.
  • 00:46:52.110 --> 00:46:55.200
  • The Lord of Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
  • 00:46:55.200 --> 00:46:59.090
  • He shall become thy shade upon thy right hand.
  • 00:46:59.090 --> 00:47:01.250
  • He shall protect thy end comings and outgoings.
  • 00:47:03.000 --> 00:47:06.160
  • - [Andrew] In the winter of 1620,
  • 00:47:06.160 --> 00:47:08.050
  • the pilgrims at Plymouth are struggling to survive.
  • 00:47:08.050 --> 00:47:11.270
  • The long journey to America has taken a heavy toll
  • 00:47:11.270 --> 00:47:14.190
  • on the weary travelers.
  • 00:47:14.190 --> 00:47:16.150
  • They were not equipped to deal with the many challenges
  • 00:47:16.150 --> 00:47:18.160
  • in the New World, and nearly half perished
  • 00:47:18.160 --> 00:47:22.140
  • in the early days of their journey.
  • 00:47:22.140 --> 00:47:24.070
  • In the midst of their struggle, they humbled themselves
  • 00:47:27.110 --> 00:47:30.030
  • and turned their hearts to God,
  • 00:47:30.030 --> 00:47:32.100
  • praying for His mercy and providence
  • 00:47:32.100 --> 00:47:34.220
  • to protect them and establish their community.
  • 00:47:34.220 --> 00:47:37.120
  • - Dear Lord, find us in the wilderness.
  • 00:47:37.120 --> 00:47:41.250
  • - [Andrew] Their prayers would be answered
  • 00:47:41.250 --> 00:47:43.050
  • through a series of divine and tragic events
  • 00:47:43.050 --> 00:47:46.230
  • that occurred years earlier
  • 00:47:46.230 --> 00:47:48.220
  • in the life of a young native boy named Tisquantum.
  • 00:47:48.220 --> 00:47:52.000
  • It was the early 1600s in the area
  • 00:47:54.090 --> 00:47:56.260
  • that would soon be called Massachusetts.
  • 00:47:56.260 --> 00:47:59.180
  • Tisquantum and his tribe were curious
  • 00:47:59.180 --> 00:48:01.220
  • about the men from across the ocean
  • 00:48:01.220 --> 00:48:03.200
  • who would visit their shoreline from time to time.
  • 00:48:03.200 --> 00:48:06.050
  • During one of those visits, an English sailor, Thomas Hunt,
  • 00:48:08.250 --> 00:48:12.170
  • not satisfied with his income
  • 00:48:12.170 --> 00:48:14.080
  • and looking for dishonest gain,
  • 00:48:14.080 --> 00:48:16.100
  • came to the region looking for opportunities.
  • 00:48:16.100 --> 00:48:19.050
  • (dramatic music)
  • 00:48:19.050 --> 00:48:21.270
  • Hunt broke trust with the tribes
  • 00:48:23.080 --> 00:48:25.100
  • and took Tisquantum and 23 other natives aboard his ship.
  • 00:48:25.100 --> 00:48:29.020
  • (water splashing)
  • 00:48:37.190 --> 00:48:40.140
  • The natives were forced into the ship's hull
  • 00:48:44.070 --> 00:48:46.040
  • and taken across the ocean to Spain
  • 00:48:46.040 --> 00:48:48.140
  • to be sold into slavery.
  • 00:48:48.140 --> 00:48:50.030
  • Distrust grew in Tisquantum's heart
  • 00:48:52.090 --> 00:48:54.100
  • during his travel across the sea
  • 00:48:54.100 --> 00:48:56.160
  • and he wondered why the Great Spirit
  • 00:48:56.160 --> 00:48:58.030
  • would allow him to be so mistreated.
  • 00:48:58.030 --> 00:49:00.020
  • After a long journey, they finally arrived in Spain.
  • 00:49:03.240 --> 00:49:07.070
  • Tisquantum did not know what his future would hold
  • 00:49:07.070 --> 00:49:09.260
  • and wondered if he would ever see home again.
  • 00:49:09.260 --> 00:49:12.130
  • (gentle music)
  • 00:49:16.140 --> 00:49:19.020
  • Upon landing in Spain,
  • 00:49:19.020 --> 00:49:20.130
  • the slave traders sold several natives,
  • 00:49:20.130 --> 00:49:22.260
  • but Tisquantum was set free by a group of Spanish friars
  • 00:49:22.260 --> 00:49:26.260
  • who disrupted the event before Tisquantum's sale.
  • 00:49:26.260 --> 00:49:29.150
  • The friars took him in and he lived among them.
  • 00:49:30.240 --> 00:49:33.260
  • He learned how to speak Spanish
  • 00:49:34.260 --> 00:49:36.130
  • and about their Christian faith,
  • 00:49:36.130 --> 00:49:38.160
  • about the one true God of the Bible and his son, Jesus.
  • 00:49:38.160 --> 00:49:42.250
  • They taught him their self-sustaining lifestyle,
  • 00:49:42.250 --> 00:49:45.100
  • planting and harvesting crops.
  • 00:49:45.100 --> 00:49:48.040
  • Tisquantum grew to love and trust the monks
  • 00:49:48.040 --> 00:49:50.240
  • and life was good with them.
  • 00:49:50.240 --> 00:49:52.050
  • But his desire to return home to his people, his tribe,
  • 00:49:53.280 --> 00:49:58.100
  • never left him.
  • 00:49:58.100 --> 00:49:59.070
  • He longed for the familiar places, the family and friends
  • 00:50:01.040 --> 00:50:04.100
  • from whom he had been so violently taken.
  • 00:50:04.100 --> 00:50:06.220
  • He prayed to God that somehow, someday,
  • 00:50:09.120 --> 00:50:12.090
  • he would be able to return to his tribe.
  • 00:50:12.090 --> 00:50:14.090
  • God heard his prayers.
  • 00:50:21.120 --> 00:50:23.180
  • The friars devised a plan
  • 00:50:23.180 --> 00:50:25.070
  • to get Tisquantum back to his homeland
  • 00:50:25.070 --> 00:50:27.230
  • and to his beloved tribe.
  • 00:50:27.230 --> 00:50:29.170
  • It would not be easy and it would take several years,
  • 00:50:29.170 --> 00:50:32.140
  • but their plan was put into action.
  • 00:50:32.140 --> 00:50:34.190
  • (gentle piano music)
  • 00:50:36.160 --> 00:50:38.230
  • He made his way to England, where he lived with
  • 00:50:38.230 --> 00:50:41.020
  • and worked for an English businessman named John Slany.
  • 00:50:41.020 --> 00:50:45.160
  • Slany and his Newfoundland Company
  • 00:50:45.160 --> 00:50:47.060
  • were looking for opportunities
  • 00:50:47.060 --> 00:50:48.250
  • to expand trade with the New England natives.
  • 00:50:48.250 --> 00:50:51.220
  • Tisquantum had learned how to speak English fluently
  • 00:50:51.220 --> 00:50:54.050
  • and would earn his way back to America
  • 00:50:54.050 --> 00:50:56.250
  • working for the company as a translator.
  • 00:50:56.250 --> 00:50:58.290
  • Hope sprung up in Tisquantum
  • 00:51:00.080 --> 00:51:02.020
  • as he believed he would soon be home with his tribe.
  • 00:51:02.020 --> 00:51:04.190
  • He remained in England for a few more years,
  • 00:51:06.010 --> 00:51:08.190
  • but Tisquantum's hope never died.
  • 00:51:08.190 --> 00:51:11.190
  • He'd been places that few in his tribe could even imagine
  • 00:51:11.190 --> 00:51:15.010
  • and he longed to tell them
  • 00:51:15.010 --> 00:51:16.100
  • about all that he'd done and seen.
  • 00:51:16.100 --> 00:51:19.030
  • (soft dramatic music)
  • 00:51:19.030 --> 00:51:21.200
  • (horses whinnying)
  • 00:51:21.200 --> 00:51:24.180
  • Finally, in 1619, everything was in place.
  • 00:51:31.210 --> 00:51:35.140
  • Once more, he sailed across the ocean.
  • 00:51:36.190 --> 00:51:39.000
  • This time, his destination was home.
  • 00:51:39.000 --> 00:51:41.150
  • With his feet finally back on familiar soil,
  • 00:51:49.110 --> 00:51:52.010
  • Tisquantum ran towards his village
  • 00:51:52.010 --> 00:51:53.180
  • excited to be reunited with his loved ones.
  • 00:51:53.180 --> 00:51:56.030
  • His heart was crushed by what he discovered.
  • 00:51:57.260 --> 00:52:00.070
  • Plague had ravaged his people only months earlier
  • 00:52:02.050 --> 00:52:05.150
  • ane everyone had died.
  • 00:52:05.150 --> 00:52:08.000
  • Of his tribe, only Tisquantum remained.
  • 00:52:08.000 --> 00:52:11.060
  • Confused and alone, he pondered his existence, his purpose.
  • 00:52:13.180 --> 00:52:17.290
  • Why had he endured the years of struggle
  • 00:52:20.010 --> 00:52:22.010
  • and false hope in strange lands?
  • 00:52:22.010 --> 00:52:24.240
  • Why did he make it all the way home
  • 00:52:24.240 --> 00:52:26.280
  • only to find such devastation?
  • 00:52:26.280 --> 00:52:28.240
  • Thoughts of death were not far from him.
  • 00:52:30.010 --> 00:52:33.050
  • (soft music)
  • 00:52:36.120 --> 00:52:38.260
  • He was accepted into the neighboring Wampanoag tribe,
  • 00:52:38.260 --> 00:52:42.050
  • but in his heart, he knew he did not belong.
  • 00:52:42.050 --> 00:52:45.060
  • Word came to Tisquantum
  • 00:52:50.160 --> 00:52:51.290
  • that a group of European settlers had set up their camp
  • 00:52:51.290 --> 00:52:54.250
  • on the very site of his former village.
  • 00:52:54.250 --> 00:52:57.020
  • They were English, pilgrims.
  • 00:52:59.260 --> 00:53:02.230
  • He spoke their language and knew their ways.
  • 00:53:02.230 --> 00:53:05.140
  • He saw how they struggled to survive,
  • 00:53:05.140 --> 00:53:07.290
  • how they prayed to Jesus for help, for hope.
  • 00:53:07.290 --> 00:53:11.010
  • His heart went out to them and he longed to help them.
  • 00:53:12.140 --> 00:53:15.050
  • With the blessing of the Wampanoag chief,
  • 00:53:22.090 --> 00:53:24.150
  • Tisquantum made his presence known.
  • 00:53:24.150 --> 00:53:27.020
  • The pilgrims were filled with fear at the sight of him.
  • 00:53:27.020 --> 00:53:30.090
  • So far, relations with the native tribes had not been easy
  • 00:53:30.090 --> 00:53:33.280
  • and tensions were high.
  • 00:53:33.280 --> 00:53:35.020
  • As Tisquantum neared the entrance of the village,
  • 00:53:36.080 --> 00:53:38.080
  • he raised his voice and spoke in perfect English.
  • 00:53:38.080 --> 00:53:41.230
  • - My name is Tisquantum and this is Big Bear.
  • 00:53:43.060 --> 00:53:46.020
  • We mean you no harm.
  • 00:53:46.020 --> 00:53:47.110
  • - [Andrew] The pilgrims were amazed
  • 00:53:48.180 --> 00:53:49.250
  • at the sight and sound of him.
  • 00:53:49.250 --> 00:53:52.060
  • They welcomed him in - My village used to be
  • 00:53:52.060 --> 00:53:53.090
  • right here. - And he made his home
  • 00:53:53.090 --> 00:53:54.250
  • with them.
  • 00:53:54.250 --> 00:53:55.200
  • In the spring, Tisquantum taught the pilgrims
  • 00:54:12.290 --> 00:54:15.060
  • what he had learned from his own tribe
  • 00:54:15.060 --> 00:54:17.060
  • and his time with the friars in Spain:
  • 00:54:17.060 --> 00:54:19.140
  • how to plant crops and fertilize seeds.
  • 00:54:19.140 --> 00:54:22.190
  • He was their interpreter and helped make peace
  • 00:54:22.190 --> 00:54:25.010
  • with the Wampanoag and other tribes in the area.
  • 00:54:25.010 --> 00:54:27.160
  • Before long, he was more at home with the settlers
  • 00:54:29.200 --> 00:54:32.020
  • than he was anywhere else.
  • 00:54:32.020 --> 00:54:33.280
  • He lived with them and, in many ways, became one of them.
  • 00:54:33.280 --> 00:54:37.000
  • In the fall of 1621, the harvest was abundant.
  • 00:54:39.000 --> 00:54:42.090
  • The pilgrims were thriving.
  • 00:54:42.090 --> 00:54:44.110
  • God had answered their fervent prayers through Tisquantum,
  • 00:54:44.110 --> 00:54:47.080
  • and in the process, healed his broken heart.
  • 00:54:47.080 --> 00:54:50.030
  • In November of that year,
  • 00:54:51.220 --> 00:54:53.180
  • the pilgrim leaders held a great feast,
  • 00:54:53.180 --> 00:54:55.290
  • giving thanks to God for providing for their needs.
  • 00:54:55.290 --> 00:54:59.070
  • William Bradford, the leader of the pilgrims,
  • 00:54:59.070 --> 00:55:01.280
  • asked Tisquantum to invite the Wampanoag tribe
  • 00:55:01.280 --> 00:55:04.140
  • to the thanksgiving celebration.
  • 00:55:04.140 --> 00:55:06.210
  • They came and joined the party for three days
  • 00:55:06.210 --> 00:55:09.000
  • and there was peace and joy in the region.
  • 00:55:09.000 --> 00:55:12.170
  • (dramatic music)
  • 00:55:12.170 --> 00:55:15.090
  • - Brothers and sisters, we gather today
  • 00:55:27.200 --> 00:55:31.130
  • with thankfulness in our hearts.
  • 00:55:31.130 --> 00:55:33.120
  • The Lord in His mercy has planted us
  • 00:55:34.160 --> 00:55:37.110
  • and established us here.
  • 00:55:37.110 --> 00:55:39.130
  • We have seen times of adversity and mourning and scarcity,
  • 00:55:40.240 --> 00:55:45.110
  • but now, the Lord shows us a time of harvest and plenty.
  • 00:55:46.250 --> 00:55:51.050
  • And we are thankful for Squanto,
  • 00:55:52.010 --> 00:55:53.170
  • who has joined us in our pilgrimage here
  • 00:55:54.230 --> 00:55:58.180
  • to worship God freely.
  • 00:55:58.180 --> 00:56:01.020
  • His path has not been easy, but the Lord was with him
  • 00:56:01.020 --> 00:56:05.130
  • and sustained him and brought him to this place before us,
  • 00:56:05.130 --> 00:56:10.130
  • and he has been an answer to our prayers here,
  • 00:56:11.240 --> 00:56:15.260
  • that the Lord would provide for us,
  • 00:56:17.000 --> 00:56:18.000
  • provide a way by His mighty hand.
  • 00:56:18.000 --> 00:56:20.290
  • And the hand of God is with you and has never forsaken you.
  • 00:56:20.290 --> 00:56:25.210
  • The psalmist tells us: Give thanks unto the Lord,
  • 00:56:25.210 --> 00:56:29.280
  • for He is good, and his mercy endures forever.
  • 00:56:29.280 --> 00:56:34.220
  • And today, with our friends and our families
  • 00:56:35.260 --> 00:56:39.160
  • and our neighbors, we will declare this
  • 00:56:39.160 --> 00:56:43.180
  • a great day of thanksgiving and we will celebrate
  • 00:56:43.180 --> 00:56:47.190
  • and we will praise the Lord for His mercy to us
  • 00:56:47.190 --> 00:56:51.090
  • and His presence with us.
  • 00:56:52.050 --> 00:56:54.020
  • Amen.
  • 00:56:54.280 --> 00:56:55.230
  • - [Andrew] Without Tisquantum's help,
  • 00:56:56.290 --> 00:56:58.200
  • the pilgrims may not have survived
  • 00:56:58.200 --> 00:57:00.160
  • those early, brutal years.
  • 00:57:00.160 --> 00:57:02.190
  • Tisquantum put his faith in the God of the Bible
  • 00:57:02.190 --> 00:57:05.240
  • and lived with the pilgrims until his death.
  • 00:57:05.240 --> 00:57:08.190
  • He became known as Squanto, and his legend lives on today
  • 00:57:08.190 --> 00:57:13.160
  • in the story of the first Thanksgiving,
