Lindsay Roberts LIVE welcomes Neal and Danette Childs

DC: But in recent years I believe that famine that we had in 2005, a news person, the media got hold of it and finally started to air, and that’s when it started becoming a forgotten crisis.  But God has not forgotten Niger.

LR: God was raising up a bunch of kids.

DC: We believe there’s more people out there that God has called to Niger that need to answer that call.

LR: The number-one need, Neal, practically and logically speaking, the kind of people you need, the kind of—and I know you’re starting school.  I mean, you are right in the process—

NC:

Well, we need people that have a vision to reach the unreached, that’s the first thing.  But we have opportunities in the area of education.  We’re believing for some medical outreach.  But we need people that are really just ready to come and be available, faithfulness and ability is probably the biggest thing.

You don’t have to have a lot of qualifications.  If you’re ready to say, “Yes, Lord,” He’s ready to use you.  The harvest is great, the laborers are few.  And that’s because the laborers aren’t willing to go.

And that’s where we’re just telling people, “Come.  It’s time.  You’ve got to answer the call to the mission field.  You’ve got to go out and reach the harvest.”

LR: Is there air-conditioning?

DC: No.

LR: Is it the hottest place in the country, in the world?  Yes.  Is it a mission field?  Yes.  Is it the poorest country in the world?  Yes.  Are people starving?  Yes.

NC: But, you know, it doesn’t matter.  I mean, it doesn’t affect you if you’re hot.  When you’re leading somebody to Christ, you’re fulfilling the purpose that God had for you.  It doesn’t matter how sweaty you are, whatever it is.  You are telling somebody Jesus loves them for the first time.  It’s awesome!

DC: I developed, I guess I would call it maybe a coping mechanism when we first got there.  It is a difficult place to live.  It’s harsh.  It’s a harsh climate.  It’s harsh on your physical body.  It’s harsh on your electronics.  It’s harsh on everything for people there.

And there was a time I felt discouraged, “What am I doing here?  You mean God really called me to this place?”  And it was just a momentary, it wasn’t a long-term.  But, I mean, it was just one of those—and I was hot, you know.

NC: So then we had to say, “Well, you’ve got to get out and go do some ministry.”

DC: I had already committed that day to go out to a village.  I wouldn’t have gone, had I not already made the commitment.  And I went out there, and I was with those people.  I was in a village service.  And it was just like, “This is what it’s all about.”  And I came back so renewed and refreshed after being in ministry.

And Jesus said, “My food is to do the will of my Father.”  And that’s what I realized, so now I know whenever I start felling like that, I need to get out and do some ministry.  And it’s my fix every time.

Richard Roberts LIVE with Guests Oral and Evelyn Roberts Part Ninth

RR: Dad, I was sitting here thinking back over the years as you were talking. You know, there’s no group of people in the history of this country that have done what the partners of this ministry have done. I remember as a little boy how we had a farm and you’d pitch a tent and our partners would come from all over America and Canada and from foreign nations and how you would say, “We’re going to build a university, will you help me build dormitories, will you help me build classrooms, will you help me start with nothing?” And those partners, somehow, I don’t know how, but somehow that got in their soul. It got down in their gut where they live. And they said, “Yes, I’ll help you. I’ll sponsor a mattress. I’ll sponsor a, I’ll sponsor a door. I’ll sponsor some tiling, some carpet. I’ll sponsor the ceiling. Yes, I’ll help you buy books for your library. Yes, I’ll help you build that Prayer Tower.” You know, here we are this summer, we’ve been remodeling some of those original dormitories. And I was thinking of that. And I thought to myself, where else on the face of this earth are there a group of people like the partners of this ministry who have singlehandedly built a university? And I thought, where else on the face of this earth have partners, have men and women like you stood together to raise the only medical center of its kind where the doctors and the nurses are Spirit-filled, they have great medical abilities but they also know to pray? Where else on the face of this earth? (Applause) And I was thinking, there’s no other group of people, there’s no group of people on the face of this earth. You say, what are you trying to say? I’m trying to say what Paul the apostle said to the church at Philippi when he wrote in the 4th chapter, when he said, “Nobody communicated with me except you concerning giving and receiving.” There’s nobody that’s done what you’ve done. There’s no one who has built a university like what you have built through this family. There’s no one like you who has built a medical research center where prayer and medicine science are being joined together. Nobody has done it. Nobody has built a Healing Outreach Center with the Journey Through the Bible like you’ve built. And the good news is, it’s only in its first phase. There’s lots more to come. When you go through the Journey Through the Bible this summer or this fall or whenever you come to Tulsa, the first part is only done and you only get through Genesis. There’s the whole Bible all the way through Revelation to be done. But my point is, nobody has done what you’ve done. And I believe that the partners of this ministry are going to rise to the occasion because we are on the way now. We are not going to lose. We’re going to go over the top for God and the nations of this earth are going to be reached with the medical missionaries. Hallelujah!

RR:  Dad, there’s somebody watching right now that God has been speaking to while you’ve been sharing on this program today.  And they are in a position where they could sponsor an entire medical student at $45,000.  You know you’ve been hearing Oral, Evelyn, Richard, Lindsay Roberts talk, but on the inside you’ve beenhearing God speak. Now you say, but how could I do it?  Well, you could do it all at one time.  You could do it by writing out a check.  You are in position to do that.  Or maybe you have a piece of property that is about to be sold.  You could do it through that piece of property.  Or you may be able to do it through a gift of stock or real estate, something like that.  Or maybe through a life loan agreement.  Or through a gift annuity with this ministry.  If God is speaking in your heart, He has a way for you to do what He’s calling you to do.  You need to be a part of this.  It’s going to be a great miracle in your life and I’m God is speaking in people’s hearts right now to sow a seed of–well, He’s talking to one man right now to sow a seed of $10,000 today on your Master Card, your Visa or your American Express.  And by the way, you can call the Abundant Life Prayer Group at area code 918-495-7777 and you can put a Seed-Faith gift immediately on your credit card and it will be sown into the good soil of the gospel today.  Or you may feel like sitting down and writing out a check for $1,000.  Many people who are watching me right now can give $1,000 this month and $1,000 next month. There are others who are watching who can give $500.  You say, well I can’t give that much.  Well, let me tell you, friend, little is much when God is in it.  Maybe you can give $100. Maybe you can give $50.  Maybe you can give $25.  Maybe you can only give $10.  But every seed sown toward this project will be multiplied. You can be a part of it.  God has something special for you.  And when you do it, when you sow it in this good soil, expect, expect, expect God to multiply it back to you a hundredfold.  Take Him at His word. (Applause)  Give God your best and then ask Him for His best.  Let’s join together and pray.  Mother.

ER:  I wanted to say just a word before we pray, Richard.  I have a feeling that there’s a pastor sitting out there watching this program and he is thinking in his spirit, well maybe I should examine our missions program.  Maybe we’re not giving to good soil where we’re getting people saved and healed.  Maybe I should examine it and see. And maybe that pastor will want to redirect some of the missions money toward a medical student here.  And, you know, I just have a feeling that somebody, some pastor is going to do that today.  I really believe that.

They Say It’s A Democracy

They Say It's A Democracy By Richard Roberts

Powerful, John. This place to me, I cannot foresee in the deepest parts of me, I cannot foresee the university or any piece of real estate here not functioning its normal process. It would absolutely break my heart, number one, because my daughter was educated here. And the university has a great, has an investment in me and her future.

And the Oral Roberts University is the university that Richard Roberts just got back from Australia and they are pleading in Australia for me to give them the information how you’ve done it, how your father has done what he’s done here because they say, “There is no Christian university there in Australia to teach the young how to become doctors, lawyers, politicians and how to be a complete person, a whole person.” So as the result of a Christian university, not being in the South Pacific, guess what the results is? There is now socialism that pervades the whole system.

They say it’s a democracy. It is. But there’s socialized medicine, there’s socialized law and the people are becoming so socially oriented that nobody has spirit and life in them to rise up above the bootstraps. And everybody seems to be put down. But the thing that I feel in my soul when I walk on the property of this wonderful memorial, not to your father’s name, though it bears his name, and I defy anyone in the media or any place that I travel to try to get this old German to say that this is a memorial to Oral Roberts.

Anybody with one eye and half sense can see that it was not Oral Roberts, but it was God through that vessel that did what he’s done here. I want to tell you something, my friend, if there happens to be some who may say, “Yeah, I hope so it fails,” you know, there is a charismatic insanity that tends to pervade the whole body of Christ when an emergency rises. But that is when you can tell who your real friends are, when they come out from under the rug and say, “Oral, Richard Roberts, here we are.

We’re not going to let the devil come in and shut down a university who has students and medical teams all over the world who is bathing the sore eyes of someone today in Afghanistan, who is treating the tooth of someone down in Zaire. I tell the devil to go to hell where he belongs and I prophesy that this university will not only stay opened but will expand because God said it and man can’t stop it. So when I saw what Oral read there, chapter 17 of Matthew 24-27 about the fish and how they got the money out of the mouth, I happen to know a little bit about the university and the school and about this place.

I know because my daughter’s been here. Sixty percent of the support for this entity is supported by tuition in the university. The other 25% comes in from the donors. But we lack 15% to cause it to function and have a normal cash flow.

Treat,Diagnose and Pray

Treat,Diagnose and Pray by Richard Roberts

I don’t know. I think that I have seen more caringness, nurses not just doing nursing for a paycheck, but nurses doing nursing because they care about people. And the response, quickly responding to patient’s calls when a nurse call light is on. Or just, or the attitude, I’m sorry I wasn’t here quicker, I was tied up with so and so. You know, what can I do to help you? And I just think the caringness comes out in whether you’re doing a treatment, pouring water, just talking with them.

Caring, caring, caring is a key word. Would you pass that microphone to David Wakefield. David, as a prayer partner, you go throughout the hospital, through the clinic, you’re praying with people every day. What do you feel? What are you sensing in your spirit that’s happening at the City of Faith? Well, Richard Roberts, I think that with the Seed-Faith ministry to patients that we had, this is one of the greatest things we’ve ever done.

I’ve been with the ministry since ’68 and we not only preach it but we practice it. And many of these people who are Seed-Faith have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ. And they come here to get medical care but they get a lot more than that. They get a salvation experience with Jesus that they wouldn’t have heard unless they got medical care first. And it’s fantastic. People get a healing that they will take with them through eternity.

Well, I want to give you an opportunity today, and I’m so glad you could stop by for a minute. I know the busy schedule. We, things are moving here at the City of Faith. Things are happening here. The nurses are busy, the doctors are busy. I know you’re in need right now, Jim, of more physicians. You’re in need of more nurses. Do you want to say a word about it?

I sure do, Richard Roberts. Somebody is probably watching the television program right now who knows of a physician or maybe you are a physician or your husband is one or your wife’s one, and something down in your heart is saying to you, perhaps the City of Faith is the place where I ought to serve God. We need Spirit Filled physicians who will come here and minister all of God’s healing power, who can practice expert medicine but who are willing to accept the fact that God is the Source of healing and that God heals.

We just treat and diagnose and pray and believe and love and care, but God heals. That’s the kind of physician we’re looking for.
