TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

THE DEVASTATION OF THAT

DEADLY TYPHOON.

A LOOK AT HOW PEOPLE IN THE

PHILIPPINES ARE COPING WITH

THE DESTRUCTION.

Wendy: PLUS, HEALTH

CARE OVERHAUL.

THE PRESIDENT'S BROKEN

PROMISE THAT COULD COST

AMERICANS BIG BUCKS.

Mark: AND SEE HOW ONE

CHAPLAIN IS LENDING A

HELPING HAND TO GIVE PEOPLE

A FRESH START.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT

ON "NEWSWATCH."

GOOD EVENING, I'M MARK

MARTIN.

Wendy: AND I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

AS MANY AS 10,000 PEOPLE ARE

FEARED DEAD IN THE

PHILIPPINES AFTER A SUPER

TYPHOON BATTERED PARTS OF

THE COUNTRY.

Mark: THE GOVERNMENT

SAYS

HERE ARE THE IMAGES OF

THE FIRST MOMENTS OF THE

STORM FROM THE FILIPINO

BROADCASTER ABC, CBN,

SHOWING WHEN THE FIRST WALL

OF WATER CAME CRASHING INTO

TACLOBAN.

HERE IS ANOTHER ONE CAPTURED

BY JIM EDS, THE MOMENT

TYPHOON HAIYAN MADE IMPACT.

STUFF WAS FLYING OVER THE

TOP.

IT BLEW HARD.

IT BLEW FOR HOURS.

AND IT DIDN'T LET UP.

IT WAS CERTAINLY THE

STRONGEST WIND I'VE EVER

BEEN IN.

Reporter: CBN DISASTER

RELIEF TEAMS ARE ON THE

GROUND IN SOME OF THE

HARDEST-HIT AREAS,

DISTRIBUTING RELIEF GOODS TO

VICTIMS.

WE HAVE LOTS OF WATER,

WHICH IS REALLY BADLY

NEEDED.

WE HAVE CANNED GOODS,

SARDINES, AND WE HAVE RICE,

AND TENTS AND MATS AND

BLANKETS.

WE ALSO HAVE STUFFED TOYS

BECAUSE HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN WERE

TRAUMATIZED DURING THE

TYPHOON.

Reporter: A TEAM OF 90

U.S. MARINES ARE HELPING IN

THE SEARCH-AND-RESCUE

EFFORTS.

CBN ALSO COORDINATED WITH

THE MILITARY, GIVING THEM

RELIEF GOODS FOR AREAS CUT

OFF FROM THE REST OF THE

COUNTRY.

PEOPLE HAVE NOT EATEN FOR

DAYS.

WE'RE SENDING BLANKETS,

MATS, MEDICINE, FOOD, RICE,

ALL OF THE ESSENTIAL THINGS

THAT THEY NEED TO SURVIVE.

AND WE ARE ASSEMBLING A

GROUP OF DOCTORS HERE AND

ALSO IN SABU TO JOIN OUR

TEAM IN THE DISASTER AREA.

Reporter: AND AS IF THE

FILIPINO PEOPLE HAVEN'T

SUFFERED ENOUGH ALREADY,

THERE IS ANOTHER TYPHOON ON

ITS WAY TO THE DISASTER

ZONE.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THANKS, DALE.

OUR HEARTS AND PRAYERS GO

OUT TO THE FILIPINOS.

HUMANITARIAN AID IS ALREADY

BEGINNING TO POUR INTO THE

PHILIPPINES, AND FOR MORE OF

WHAT CBN DISASTER RELIEF

TEAMS ARE DOING, AND TO FIND

OUT HOW YOU CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE THERE, VISIT OUR

WEBSITE, CBNNEWS.COM.

Mark: THE NUCLEAR TALKS

BETWEEN IRAN AND THE WORLD'S

LEADING POWERS ENDED OVER

THE WEEKEND WITH NO

AGREEMENT.

STILL ALL SIDES SAY PROGRESS

HAS BEEN MADE, AND STILL A

DEAL IS ON THE HORIZON.

BUT ISRAEL WARNS THAT ANY

DEAL WITH IRAN IS A BAD

ONE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM REPORTS.

Reporter: NEGOTIATIONS

WITH IRAN CENTER ON EASING

ECONOMIC SANCTIONS, BUT ONLY

IF THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC

AGREES TO SUSPEND URANIUM

ENRICHMENT, WHICH THE U.S.

AND OTHERS BELIEVE COULD BE

USED TO PRODUCE WEAPONS.

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN

KERRY SAYS THE UNITED STATES

AND ITS ALLIES AGREED TO A

DEAL OVER THE WEEKEND, BUT

THE IRANIANS DIDN'T ACCEPT

IT.

HOWEVER, THAT CONTRADICTS

THE FRENCH FOREIGN MINISTER

WHO SAYS HIS COUNTRY

WOULDN'T ACCEPT THE

U.S.-BACKED PROPOSAL,

CALLING IT A SUCKER'S DEAL.

HE SAYS IT DIDN'T ADDRESS

THE SECURITY CONCERNS OF

ISRAEL.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAYS THE

PROPOSAL LEAVES IRAN'S

NUCLEAR PROGRAM ENTACT.

IT IS A BAD AND DANGEROUS

DEAL, THAT DEALS WITH THE

THING THAT AFFECTS OUR

SURVIVAL.

AND WHEN IT COMES TO THE

QUESTION OF JEWISH SURVIVAL,

AND THE SURVIVAL OF THE

JEWISH STATE, I WILL NOT BE

SILENCED.

EVER!

NOT ON MY WATCH.

Reporter: BUT KERRY

DEFENDED U.S. EFFORTS AT

DIPLOMACY WITH IRAN, SAYING

THEY WON'T SIGN A BAD DEAL.

WE ARE NOT BLIND, AND I

DON'T THINK WE'RE STUPID.

I THINK WE HAVE A PRETTY

STRONG SENSE OF HOW TO

MEASURE WHETHER OR NOT WE

ARE ACTING IN THE INTERESTS

OF OUR COUNTRY AND OF THE

GLOBE, AND PARTICULARLY OF

OUR ALLIES, LIKE ISRAEL AND

GULF STATES AND OTHERS IN

THE REGION.

WE ARE ABSOLUTELY DETERMINED

THAT THIS WOULD BE A GOOD

DEAL, OR THERE WILL ARE NO

DEAL.

Reporter: KERRY SAYS

NETANYAHU'S REJECTION OF THE

DEAL IS PREMATURE, AND SAYS

THE TALKS WILL GIVE ISRAEL

GREATER SECURITY.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Mark: FOR MORE ON THIS,

WE TURN NOW TO OUR MIDDLE

EAST BUREAU CHIEF, CHRIS

MITCHELL, AND HE JOINS US

FROM JERUSALEM.

NO DEAL WAS MADE AFTER THE

WEEKEND TALKS.

DOES THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT

VIEW THAT, THOUGH, AS A GOOD

SIGN?

Reporter: I THINK THEY

SEE IT AS A GOOD SIGN,

MARK.

THEY SEE IT IN A WAY THAT

THEY HAVE SOME WINDOW BEFORE

ANY AGREEMENT IS MADE.

THEY HAVE ABOUT 10 DAYS

BEFORE THE NEXT ROUND OF

NEGOTIATIONS.

THEY'RE DOING EVERYTHING

THEY CAN IN AN UNUSUALLY

DIPLOMATICALLY BLUNT WAY TO

MAKE SURE THAT THIS DEAL

DOESN'T HAPPEN.

Mark: NO DEAL WAS MADE

IN GENEVA, BUT IRAN DID

AGREE TODAY TO EXPAND

MONITORING OF THEIR NUCLEAR

PROGRAM BY THE U.N., SAYING

IT IS A ROADMAP TO A DEAL.

DO YOU AGREE?

Reporter: WELL, I THINK

YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT IT TWO

WAYS.

THERE IS ONE AGREEMENT

BETWEEN THE IAEA, BUT THIS

OTHER DEAL BETWEEN THE P.5

PLUS 1, WITH IRAN, AND WHAT

THEY'RE GOING TO DO WITH THE

IRAQ NUCLEAR PLAN AND WHAT

THEY'RE GOING TO DO WITH THE

STOCKPILE OF 20% ENRICHED

URANIUM.

SO I THINK YOU NEED TO SEE

IT IT TWO SEPARATE WAYS.

THE ISRAELIS ARE SAYING ONE

THING THAT HAS TO BE STOPPED

IS THIS IRAQ NUCLEAR PLANT

THAT PRODUCE PLUTONIUM.

THEY SEE THAT AS ANOTHER WAY

IRAN CAN GET A NUCLEAR

WEAPON.

Mark: WHAT IS THE

GENERAL FEELING OVER IRAN'S

NUCLEAR AMBITIONS?

I THINK THE GENERAL

FEELING IS DON'T DO IT.

A FEW WEEKS AGO, THE NEW

IRANIAN PRESIDENT WENT ON

HIS CHARM OFFENSIVE, AND

U.S. PRESIDENT OBAMA CALLED

ROUHANI, WHICH IS THE FIRST

TIME ANY LEADER HAD

CONTACTED THE IRANIAN

LEADERSHIP SINCE 1979.

AND THE ISRAELIS WERE

SAYING, DON'T DO IT, DON'T

FALL FOR THE CHARM

OFFENSIVE, DON'T GO INTO THE

NEGOTIATIONS.

IF ANYTHING, THEY WOULD

AGREE WITH BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU, SAYING THIS IS

THE TIME TO STRENGTHEN

SANCTIONS, NOT WEAKEN THEM.

DON'T DEAL WITH THIS VERY

DANGEROUS ISLAMIC REGIME.

Mark: LET'S TALK MORE

ABOUT THE DANGER TO ISRAEL.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE JEWISH

STATE IF A DEAL IS MADE WITH

IRAN?

IF A DEAL IS MADE, IT

PUTS ISRAEL ALONE AGAINST

IRAN.

NOT ONLY DIPLOMATICALLY, BUT

MILITARILY.

NETANYAHU SAYS AT THE U.N.,

THEY'RE WILLING TO GO IT

ALONE.

THAT MEANS POSSIBLY AN

INCREASED LIKELIHOOD OF AN

ISRAELI MILITARY STRIKE

AGAINST IRAN'S NUCLEAR

FACILITIES.

Mark: CHRIS MITCHELL,

THANKS FOR YOUR INSIGHTS, AS

ALWAYS.

WE APPRECIATE IT.

Reporter: THANKS,

MARK.

Mark: STAY SAFE.

FOR THE LATEST FROM CHRIS,

MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT HIS

BLOG AND WEEKLY

SHOW, "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

AND YOU CAN FIND THAT AT OUR

WEBSITE, CBNNEWS.COM.

Wendy: AN INTERNATIONAL

PEACE CONFERENCE MAY BE THE

LAST CHANCE TO NEGOTIATE AN

END TO SYRIA'S CIVIL WAR.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE

COALITION OF FORCES FOR

PEACEFUL CHANGE.

THE U.S. AND RUSSIA WANT TO

HOLD THE GENEVA TALKS ABOUT

THE END OF THE YEAR, AND

SYRIA'S MAIN OPPOSITION

GROUP SAYS TODAY THEY MAY

ATTEND.

THE SYRIAN NATIONAL

COALITION SAYS IT SUPPORTS

THE CONFERENCE, BUT WILL

ONLY GO IF HUMANITARIAN AID

IS ALLOWED INTO CRITICAL

AREAS, AND THE GOVERNMENT

RELEASES POLITICAL

PRISONERS.

Mark: HERE AT HOME, A

NEW SIGN OF TROUBLE FOR THE

ROLLOUT OF OBAMACARE.

MOST UNINSURED AMERICANS

HAVE NOT TRIED TO USE THE

OBAMACARE WEBSITES.

ONLY 18% HAVE VISITED AN

EXCHANGE SITE, AND ONLY 22%

SAY THEY PLAN TO EVEN GET

INSURANCE THROUGH THE

EXCHANGES.

GALLOP ALSO FOUND ABOUT ONE

IN FOUR AMERICANS SAY THEY

ARE MORE LIKELY TO PAY A

FINE INSTEAD OF GETTING

INSURANCE.

WOW, THAT'S TELLING.

WELL, MEANWHILE, DESPITE

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S REPEATED

PROMISES THAT AMERICANS

COULD KEEP THEIR HEALTH

INSURANCE, A NEW REPORT SAYS

52 MILLION COULD LOSE THEIR

PLANS.

Wendy: AND AS CAITLIN

BURKE REPORTS, OTHERS ARE

FINDING OUT THEIR INSURANCE

COSTS ARE SKYROCKETING.

Reporter: FOR MILLIONS

OF AMERICANS, THE REALITY OF

OBAMACARE IS HITTING HOME.

IN THE FORM OF A LETTER.

THOSE LETTERS LOOK SOMETHING

LIKE THIS.

INFORMING THEM THAT THEY'RE

LOSING THEIR CURRENT

INSURANCE COVERAGE BECAUSE

IT DOESN'T COMPLY WITH THE

NEW HEALTH LAW.

AND THAT MEANS SOME PEOPLE

ARE FINDING THEMSELVES WITH

NEW, MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE

INSURANCE PLANS.

I CALLED THEM, AND I

SAID, THIS MUST BE A

MISTAKE.

I GOT THIS LETTER THAT MY

PREMIUMS ARE DOUBLING.

WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?

AND THE WOMAN TOLD ME THAT I

WAS CONSIDERED MEDICALLY

UNDERINSURED WITH MY

PREVIOUS PLAN.

Reporter: EXPERTS SAY

THAT POLICY ADVISORS ON BOTH

SIDES OF THE AISLE,

INCLUDING THOSE IN THE WHITE

HOUSE, KNEW THIS WOULD

HAPPEN BEFORE OBAMACARE WAS

EVEN SIGNED INTO LAW.

THE OUTCOME THAT IS BUILT

INTO THE DESIGN OF THE

BILL.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO REQUIRE

THAT EVERYONE HAS TO HAVE

HEALTH INSURANCE, HAVE YOU

TO DEFINE WHAT IS HEALTH

INSURANCE.

IF YOU DEFINE WHAT IS HEALTH

INSURANCE, SOME PEOPLE'S

INSURANCE THAT THEY

CURRENTLY HAVE ISN'T GOING

TO MEET THAT DEFINITION.

Reporter: CATHY IS ONE

OF THOSE PEOPLE.

SHE IS A REALTOR IN

COLUMBUS, OHIO, AND SHE SAYS

HER INDIVIDUAL HEALTH CARE

PLAN WAS EXCHANGED FOR

ENHANCED COVERAGE.

BUT IT IS NOT JUST HER

FAMILY THAT HER NEW COVERAGE

TAKES CARE OF.

THE FIRST THING SHE SAID

TO ME WAS, YOU NOW HAVE

COVERAGE, DENTAL AND VISION

COVERAGE, FOR ALL CHILDREN

UNDER THE AGE OF 12.

SO I RAISED MY HAND, AND I

SAID, OKAY, STOP RIGHT

THERE.

I HAVE NO CHILDREN UNDER THE

AGE OF 12.

I SAID SO TAKE THAT OFF MY

PLAN.

AND SHE SAID, WE CAN'T DO

THAT.

SHE SAYS OBAMACARE MANDATES

THAT UNDER THIS ENHANCED

COVERAGE, YOU NOW COVER

EVERY CHILD UNDER THE AGE OF

12.

AND I SAID, MA'AM, COULD YOU

DO ME A FAVOR?

COULD YOU GIVE ME ALL OF

THEIR NAMES?

BECAUSE I WOULD LIKE TO GO

TO THEM AND ASK THEM, SINCE

I'M PUTTING BRACES AND

GLASSES ON YOUR CHILDREN,

WOULD YOU KINDLY CONTRIBUTE

TO MY CHILDREN'S COLLEGE

EDUCATION?

BECAUSE I WILL NOW STRUGGLE

TO PAY THAT.

Reporter: IN MANY

CASES, ENROLLING IN

OBAMACARE MEANS HIGHER

MONTHLY PREMIUMS, AND HIGHER

DEDUCTIBLES, MAKING MEDICAL

CARE AT HOSPITALS LIKE THIS

ONE NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO

AFFORD.

I HOPEFULLY WILL NEVER

NEED MY INSURANCE BECAUSE I

WILL NEVER MEET THAT

DEDUCTIBLE.

I HAVE TO PAY UP TO $5,000.

AND I STILL HAVE A 20%

CO-PAY.

IT IS REALLY CATASTROPHIC

INSURANCE AND PAYING FOR

OTHER PEOPLE'S KIDS.

Reporter: AND IT WASN'T

JUST HER DEDUCTIBLE THAT

WENT UP.

HER PREMIUM INCREASED FROM

JUST UNDER $800 A MONTH TO

NEARLY $1400.

THERE ARE GOING TO BE

WINNERS AND LOSERS.

THE BIG THING IS MOST PEOPLE

ARE GOING TO END UP PAYING

MORE THAN THEY ARE TODAY.

Reporter: BUT CAIRO

SAYS THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO

RIGHT TO DECIDE THOSE

WINNERS AND LOSERS,

INCLUDING HERSELF.

HOW DARE YOU IN

WASHINGTON TELL ME BECAUSE

OF MY HARD WORK I NOW SHOULD

NOT ONLY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR

MY CHILDREN, BUT I HAVE TO

PAY FOR SOMEBODY ELSE WHO

HAS NOT HAD THE WORK ETHIC

THAT I HAVE.

WHO HAS NOT MADE IT TO WORK

EVERY DAY, WHO HAS SPENT

THEIR MONEY UNWISELY.

HOW DARE YOU TELL ME THAT MY

HEALTH PLAN IS NOT

SUFFICIENT.

Reporter: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS, COLUMBUS,

OHIO.

Mark: A FEDERAL COURT

OF APPEALS IS BLOCKING THAT

CONTROVERSIAL CONTRACEPTION

MANDATE IN THE PRESIDENT'S

HEALTH CARE LAW.

THE SEVENTH CIRCUIT COURT

HAS RULED IN FAVOR OF A

CATHOLIC BUSINESS SUING OVER

A REQUIREMENT THAT FORCES

COMPANIES TO PROVIDE

INSURANCE TO COVER

CONTRACEPTIVES AND

ABORTION.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE REPRESENTS THE

ILLINOIS COMPANY.

THEY SAY THE COURT'S

DECISION REPRESENTS A

SIGNIFICANT VICTORY FOR

PROTECTING THE RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS OF INDIVIDUALS AND

CORPORATIONS.

THE RULING INCREASES THE

CHANCE THE U.S. SUPREME

COURT WILL TAKE UP THE

CASE.

Wendy: SIX STATES ARE

REFUSING TO PROCESS BENEFITS

FOR MARRIED, SAME-SEX

MILITARY COUPLES.

THAT'S DESPITE A RECENT

ORDER FROM THE DEFENSE

SECRETARY.

THEY SAY THE ORDER CONFLICTS

WITH STATE LAWS.

MARY FALON SAYS THE

DECISION, QUOTE,"PROTECTS

THE INTEGRITY OF OUR STATE

CONSTITUTION AND SENDS A

MESSAGE TO THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT THAT THEY CANNOT

SIMPLY IGNORE OUR LAWS OR

THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE."

THE PENTAGON HAS NOT SAID

WHAT STEPS THEY WILL TAKE

WITH STATES THAT DON'T

COMPLY WITH THE ORDER.

BESIDES OKLAHOMA, TEXAS,

GEORGIA, LOUISIANA, WEST

VIRGINIA AND MISSISSIPPI ARE

ALL REFUSING THE BENEFITS.

Mark: COMING UP, HOW

ONE FOUND FAITH AS A

PRISONER OF WAR, AND SHARED

IT IN THE VERY PLACE HE WAS

IMPRISONED.

Wendy: OVER THIS

VETERANS' DAY WEEKEND, A

GROUP OF MEN WERE HONORED

ONE FINAL TIME FOR THEIR

ROLE IN AMERICA'S RESPONSE

TO THE ATTACK ON PEARL

HARBOR.

Mark: THE SECRET

MISSION WAS CALLED THE

DOOLITTLE RAID, AND IT

INCLUDED 80 MEN, INCLUDING

JACOB DEFRASER.

Wendy: AND HIS LEGACY

LIVES ON, NOT JUST FOR HIS

PART IN THE RAID, BUT FOR

WHAT HE DID AFTERWARDS.

Mark: TURNING HATRED

INTO A LIFE-LONG MISSION TO

SHARE GOD'S LOVE WITH THE

JAPANESE.

WE

Reporter: THE JAPANESE

SNEAK ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR

BROUGHT AMERICA INTO THE

WAR.

IT'S ANGRY CITIZENS WANT AD

SWIFT RETALIATION.

LESS THAN SIX MONTHS LATER,

DOOLITTLES RAIDERS BROUGHT

THAT REVENGE, BOMBING

TOKYO.

JACOB WAS A BOMBADEER ON

THIS MISSION.

I DIDN'T CARE IF EVERY

PERSON IN JAPAN GOT KILLED

AT THAT TIME.

THERE WAS A BITTERNESS AND

RESENTMENT AND ANGER IN MY

HEART.

THE MORE THAT GOT KILLED,

THE BETTER, I THOUGHT.

Reporter: HE DIDN'T

KNOW HIS DESTINY WAS TIED TO

THE PEOPLE HE WAS TRYING TO

DESTROY.

HIS PLANE RAN OUT OF FUEL,

AND HE PARACHUTED INTO THE

HANDS OF THE JAPANESE.

HE SPENT MORE THAN THREE

YEARS IN A PRISONER OF WAR

CAMP, BEATEN, STARVED, AND

TORTURED.

HE WAS DYING OF DISPAIR,

LONELINESS AND BITTERNESS,

WHEN HE WAS GIVEN A BIBLE.

I LOOKED DOWN AT THE

BIBLE, AND THERE WAS ROMANS

10: THE 9 9, AND IT SAID IF

YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR HEART

AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART,

YOU WILL BE SAVED.

I KNOW THAT GOD TOUCHED ME

AND GAVE ME THAT FAITH.

AND THAT'S A GIFT.

AND I GOT THAT GIFT OF GOD.

IT WAS THE LIVING PRESENCE

OF JESUS.

IT WASN'T JUST WHAT THE

BIBLE SAID.

I KNEW THAT JESUS IS ALIVE.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

HE WAS STILL A PRISONER, HE

WAS NOW FREE OF THE HATRED

THAT RULED HIS LIFE.

IT JUST SEEMED LIKE I

DIDN'T HAVE ANY MORE

BITTERNESS OR RESENTMENT OR

HATRED.

AND I LOVED THEM.

I BEGAN TO FEEL SORRY FOR

THEM BECAUSE THEY WERE

LOSING THE WAR AT THAT

TIME.

I COULD TELL.

Reporter: HE WAS SET

FREE IN AUGUST 1945.

THREE YEARS LATER HE

RETURNED TO JAPAN AS A

MISSIONARY.

IT IS REPORTED THAT

THOUSANDS OF JAPANESE CAME

TO CHRIST DURING HIS FIRST

YEAR AS A MISSIONARY.

BUT FOR DEFRASER, NO

CONVERSION WAS MORE

MIRACULOUS THAN THIS MAN'S.

HE WAS THE PILOT WHO LED THE

ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR.

HE WAS SO MOVED THAT HE

BOUGHT A BIBLE AND ASKED

JESUS TO COME INTO HIS

HEART.

AND LATER ON, HE CAME

DOWN TO MY HOME, AND HE

SAID, I WANT TO BE A

CHRISTIAN.

AND SO HE GOT BAPTIZED.

THAT'S THE WAY IT HAPPENED

FOR HIM.

Reporter: TOGETHER THE

ONCE BITTER ENEMIES

MINISTERED THE GOSPEL IN

JAPAN, BOUND TOGETHER BY THE

LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST.

FFUSHITA DIED IN 1976, AND

NOW DE FRASEFRASER WILL BE

REMEMBERED FOR ONE WHO LOVED

THE ENEMY.

GOD IS GOOD.

I FEEL LIKE I CAN'T PRAISE

HIM ENOUGH.

Wendy: INCREDIBLE

STORY.

UP NEXT, HOW REMOVING OLD

TATTOOS IS HELPING PEOPLE

GAIN NEW LIFE.

Wendy: A LONG TIME

SHERIFF'S CHAPLAIN IS USING

HIS SKILLS TO MINISTER IN A

UNIQUE WAY, BY REMOVING

TATTOOS.

Mark: HE SAYS IT IS

MUCH MORE THAN JUST TAKING

OFF INK.

IT SYMBOLIZES A NEW PATH

FILLED WITH PROMISE FOR HIS

CLIENTS.

HERE IS TONIGHT'S FOCUS

REPORTS.

OKAY, WE'RE GOOD.

Reporter: IT IS PAINFUL

TO GET A TATTOO REMOVED, BUT

FOR THIS YOUNG WOMAN IT IS

WORTH IT, TO NO LONGER BE

LABELLED HATED.

SHE AND HER SHERIFF'S

DEPARTMENT COUNSELLOR WATCH

AS THE TATTOO IS ERASED.

THIS IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE OF

THE TRANSFORMATIONS

HAPPENING IN THIS UNASSUMING

HOUSTON CLINIC.

INK AND NEGATIVE

SELF-PERCEPTIONS VANISH ONE

SESSION AT A TIME.

SHERIFF'S CHAPLAIN WAYNE

HINSI IS A NEWLY TRAINED

TATTOO REMOVAL SPECIALIST.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE YOU'RE

ABLE TO ERASE A CHAPTER OF

THEIR LIFE AND TURN THE

PAGES BACK IN THAT BOOK AND

GIVE THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO

TAKE THAT DIFFERENT ROAD.

Reporter: MANY WHO COME

TO THE CLINIC ARE

EX-OFFENDERS.

SHE BELIEVES IT REPRESENTS A

NEW LIFE.

WITH HER PLAN TO BECOME A

SOCIAL WORKER.

I CAN'T ERASE ALL OF THE

DAMAGE I HAVE DONE.

BUT I CAN START BY MAKING A

NEW STATEMENT ABOUT HOW I

SHOULD BE.

Reporter: HER FORMER

LIFE INVOLVED TIME AT THE

COUNTY JAIL.

IF YOU HAD A CHOICE, WHO

WOULD HAVE DONE IT?

Reporter: THE CHAPLAIN

MEETS A LOT OF HIS TATTOOED

CLIENTS HERE.

ALMOST 100%.

UNTIL THEY GET RID OF THE

TATTOO, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

BE ABLE TO GET A GOOD-PAYING

JOB.

Reporter: THE REMOVAL

OF TATTOOS IS PART OF A

REENTRY PROGRAM FOR

OFFENDERS, THATLIE THAT

ALSO INCLUDES DRUG

COUNSELLING.

HE KNOWS WHERE WE'VE BEEN

BECAUSE HE HAS WORKED OUT

THERE.

BUT HE ALSO KNOWS WHERE WE

CAN BE IF WE CHOOSE TO

CHANGE OR LIFE.

Reporter: IN EXCHANGE,

HE WANTS COMMUNITY SERVICE.

I'LL BE HONEST TO YOU, WE

HAVEN'T BROKEN EVEN YET.

Reporter: BUT IT IS NOT

ABOUT THE MONEY.

THE EASIEST WAY TO

DESCRIBE IT IS EVERYTHING IN

OUR LIVES WORKS GREAT.

WE HAVE WONDERFUL KIDS AND

WE BOTH HAVE JOBS.

AND FOR US NOT TO TRY TO

HELP SOMEBODY ELSE, THAT'S

JUST WRONG.

Reporter: A HELPING

HAND TO A FRESH START.

Wendy: WOW!

Mark: A LONG-TIME

SHERIFF'S CHAPLAIN GOES BACK

AND LEARNS HOW TO BECOME A

TATTOO REMOVAL SPECIALIST.

Wendy: YOU CAN SEE HOW

GRATEFUL THEY ARE TO HAVE

SOMETHING LIKE "HATED"

REMOVED FROM THEIR BODY.

Mark: AND THAT ONE LADY

HAD A PLAYBOY BUNNY

REMOVED.

Wendy: ARE YOU GOING TO

HAVE YOUR TATTOO REMOVED?

Mark: I CAN HONESTLY

SAY I DON'T HAVE A TATTOO.

Wendy: WE'LL BE RIGHT

BACK.

Mark: UP NEXT, SEE WHAT

THE STATE OF NEVADA DOES TO

HONOR THEIR OLDEST LIVING

VETERAN.

Mark: ACROSS THE

COUNTRY TODAY WE HONOR OUR

VETERANS FOR THEIR SERVICE.

Wendy: WE SURE DO.

IN NEVADA, THERE IS ONE

VETERAN GETTING A LITTLE BIT

OF EXTRA ATTENTION.

AT 103, IVAN WOODFORD IS THE

OLDEST LIVING VET IN THE

STATE.

HE HAS LIVED THROUGH SEVERAL

WARS, AND NOW HE IS BEING

RECOGNIZED FOR HIS NAVAL

SERVICE IN A BIG WAY.

HE HAS BEEN GIVEN A STATE

HOLIDAY.

IT'S SOMETHING

UNEXPECTED.

BUT IT'S SOMETHING I'M KIND

OF GLAD THEY ARE RECOGNIZING

ME IN MY OLD AGE.

BECAUSE NOT TOO MANY PEOPLE

GET TO BE 103.

I DID NOT KNOW THEY WERE

GOING TO NAME A DAY AFTER

HIM.

THAT WAS QUITE A SURPRISE.

AND I FELT VERY, VERY PROUD

OF HIM.

I AM PROUD OF HIM.

Wendy: WOW.

IVAN FIRST ENLISTED IN

1942.

LOOK AT HIM BACK THEM.

GOOD FOR HIM.

HE IS RIGHT, NOT MANY PEOPLE

LIVE TO BE 103.

Mark: CONGRATULATIONS,

IVAN.

AND TO ALL OF OUR VETERANS.

WE SALUTE YOU.

HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.
