THANKS FOR JOINING US ON

CBN NEWS TODAY, I'M CHARLENE

ISRAEL.

AND I'M EPHRAIM GRAHAM.

EXTREME WEATHER HAS BEEN

HAMMERING THE NATION FROM

COAST TO COAST.

MANY AMERICANS HAVE BEEN

DEALING WITH POWER OUTAGES

AND DANGEROUS CONDITIONS.

WE BEGIN IN THE WEST.

WHERE INTENSE RAIN AND

SURGING WATER HAVE ALREADY

UPROOTED TREES AND SENT THEM

CRASHING ON TO CARS IN

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.

UTILITY POLES ALSO CAME

DOWN, TAKING POWER LINES

WITH THEM.

HEAVY RAINS, AND WE HAVE

MEASURED ABOUT 12 INCHES OF

RAIN SO FAR.

AND IT IS STILL A WINTERY

MESS FROM THE PACIFIC

NORTHWEST TO UTAH, WITH

FLOODS, MUDSLIDES, AND

AVALANCHES.

THEN AS WE MOVE FROM KANSAS

TO THE GULF COAST TO

GEORGIA, MILLIONS ARE

BRACING FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF

THE WINTER'S WRATH.

I JUST HOPE WE DON'T GET

IN THE SAME MESS WE DID LAST

TIME.

THE MAYOR OF ATLANTA IS

TAKING NO CHANCES AFTER A

DISASTEROUS REACTION THE

LAST TIME AROUND.

TWO WEEKS AGO, THE CITY

GROUND TO A SCREECHING HALT

OVER JUST A FEW INCHES OF

SNOW.

IT LEFT HUNDREDS OF DRIVERS

STRANDED ON HIGHWAYS.

AND CHILDREN WERE FORCED TO

TAKE SHELTER IN THEIR

SCHOOLS OVERNIGHT.

NOW THE CITY IS TREATING KEY

ROADS AND BRIDGES AHEAD OF

THE STORM'S ARRIVAL.

THIS HAS BEEN THE

LONGEST.

THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS.

EVEN AS ANOTHER STORM

APPROACHES, THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE ARE STILL WITHOUT

POWER, FROM MARYLAND TO

PHILADELPHIA.

AN ICE STORM KNOCKED OUT

THEIR ELECTRICITY LAST

WEDNESDAY, AND THEN THEY GOT

HIT WITH SEVERAL MORE INCHES

OF SNOW LAST NIGHT.

IT IS JUST A BAD WINTER.

EVERYBODY IS TIRED OF IT.

THAT SAME SNOWSTORM LED

TO A TERRIBLE BUS CRASH IN

SOUTHWESTERN PENNSYLVANIA

SUNDAY, SENDING MORE THAN 20

PEOPLE TO THE HOSPITAL.

TO THE NORTH, EXTREME COLD

HAS FROZEN THE GREAT LAKES,

CAUSING THE LARGEST ICE

COVERAGE SINCE 1996.

MANY AMERICANS ARE NOW

PRAYING.

, LIKE, LIKE THIS

4-YEAR-OLD, BEGGING FOR

RELIEF.

[YELLING]

JESUS, MAKE IT WARM!

THE MASSIVE RAINFALL THAT

HAS HAPPENED IN CALIFORNIA

HAS NOT BEEN ENOUGH TO MAKE

MUCH OF A DENT IN THE

STATE'S SEVERE DROUGHT.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS

EXTENDING NEW FEDERAL

BENEFITS TO SAME-SEX

COUPLES.

EERIC HOLDER IS ISSUING A

MEMO TODAY.

UNDER THE NEW RULES, THE

SAME-SEX COUPLES WOULD

RECEIVE RECOGNITION IN

FEDERAL LEGAL MATTERS, SUCH

AS BANKRUPTCYS, PRISON

VISITS, AND SURVIVAL

BENEFITS.

THE PRIVILEGES WILL BE

EXTENDED TO STATES WHERE IT

IS ILLEGAL.

THIS MEANS THAT IN EVERY

COURTHOUSE, IN EVERY

PROCEEDING, AND IN EVERY

PLACE WHERE A MEMBER OF THE

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE STANDS

ON BEHALF OF THE UNITED

STATES, THEY WILL STRIVE TO

ENSURE THAT SAME-SEX

MARRIAGES RECEIVE THE SAME

PRIVILEGES, THE SAME

PROTECTIONS, AND THE SAME

RIGHTS AS OPPOSITE-SEX

MARRIAGES UNDER FEDERAL

LAW.

HOLDER'S ACTION IS THE

LATEST APPLICATION OF A

SUPREME COURT RULING THAT

STRUCK DOWN A PROVISION IN

THE DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT,

DEFINING MARRIAGE AS THE

UNION OF ONE MAN AND ONE

WOMAN.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

IS AGGRESSIVELY PURSUING

YOUNG, HEALTHY ADULTS TO

SIGN UP FOR THE PRESIDENT'S

HEALTH CARE PLAN.

THEY WANT YOUNG PEOPLE TO

PAY FOR INSURANCE BECAUSE

PARTICIPATION FROM THE

SO-CALLED YOUNG INVINCIBLES

IS CRUCIAL TO OBAMACARE

SUCCESS.

BUT THE ADMINISTRATION IS

FAR FROM REACHING ITS GOAL

IN THAT AGE GROUP.

THE NEW HEALTH CARE LAW IS

EXPERIENCING SLOWER THAN

EXPECTED ENROLLMENT.

YOUNG INVINCIBLES, OR

ADULTS, AGES 18 TO 24.

THEY DO NOT APPEAR TO BE ON

BOARD WITH OBAMACARE.

YOUNG PEOPLE MADE UP ONLY

ABOUT ONE-FOURTH OF THOSE

WHO SIGNED UP FOR THE HEALTH

CARE EXCHANGES.

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS

DOWNPLAYED THE LAG, SAYING

THEY'RE EXPECTING

INVINCIBLES TO ENROLL

TOWARDS THE END OF THE

SIX-MONTH SIGN-UP PERIOD.

BUT THERE IS A NEW SENSE OF

URGENCY.

President Obama:

TONIGHT, I ASK EVERYBODY WHO

KNOWS SOMEONE WITHOUT HEALTH

INSURANCE, TO HELP THEM GET

COVERED BY MARCH 3 31st.

ABOUT 40% OF PEOPLE NEED

TO BE YOUNGER.

BUT MANY YOUNG PEOPLE ARE

OPTING OUT OF THE HIGH COST

OF COVERAGE UNDER THE

PRESIDENT'S NEW HEALTH CARE

LAW.

IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE FOR

THEM.

ON AVERAGE, WE'RE SEEING

THAT PREMIUMS WILL INCREASE

169% ACROSS THE BOARD.

YOUNG PEOPLE REALIZE THAT

OBAMACARE IS TAKING THE

YOUNG AND HEALTHY TO PAY FOR

THE SICK AND OLDER

AMERICANS.

WE'RE LEVERAGING OUR

FUTURE.

AS THE WHITE HOUSE WAITS

FOR MORE YOUNG PEOPLE TO

ENROLL, GRASSROOTS EFFORTS,

PUSHING PEOPLE TO SIGN UP

FOR THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH

CARE PLAN ARE POPPING UP.

WE'RE TRYING TO MAKE SURE

IT IS URCHTS ALL OF THE

URGENT ALL OF THE TIME.

ENROLLMENT HAS PICKED UP A

LOT SINCE JANUARY 1st.

THEY ARE NOW TARGETING

THE SO-CALLED YOUNG

INVINCIBLES, DRAWING ON

GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGNING

TECHNIQUES, THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION LEARNED IN

THE LAST TWO ELECTIONS.

ANYBODY HAVE ANY

QUESTIONS ABOUT HEALTH

INSURANCE?

BUT SO FAR THEY'RE STILL

SHORT OF ABOUT A THIRD OF

YOUNG AND HEALTHY ENROLLEES

THEY NEED.

A NEW POLL SHOWS MOST

INTEND TO PAY THE $95 FINE

RATHER THAN ENROLL IN THE

PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE

PLAN.

A LOUISIANA MAN SAYS HE

MAKES TOO MUCH MONEY TO BE

ELIGIBLE FOR GOVERNMENT

ASSISTANCE.

BUT HIS ONLY OPTION IN THE

OBAMACARE MARKETPLACE IS

MORE THAN HE CAN AFFORD.

CAITLIN BURKE REPORTS.

Reporter: ROBERT REED

SAYS HE IS LOST IN THE GAP.

WE MAKE TOO MUCH MONEY

AND TOO LITTLE MONEY AT THE

SAME TIME.

SO WE'VE FALLEN INTO THAT

GAP WHERE WE CANNOT GET

COVERAGE.

Reporter: REED FALLS

INTO THE CATEGORY BETWEEN

GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE AND

PRIVATE INSURANCE.

HIS STATE SAYS HE SHOULD BE

COVERED, BUT HE CAN'T FIND

INSURANCE HE CAN AFFORD.

I GRADUATED FROM LAW

SCHOOL, AND I'M GOING TO

HAVE TO GO GET A JOB THAT

PUSHES MY SALARY UP SO I CAN

GET MY FAMILY COVERED.

Reporter: THE PROBLEM

APPEARS TO AFFECT FAMILIES

IN THE 26 STATES THAT DIDN'T

HAVE THE MEDICAID COVERAGE.

IT PUTS PEOPLE LIKE REED IN

A POSITION WHERE THEY MAKE

TOO MUCH MONEY TO QUALIFY

FOR MEDICAID, AND TOO LITTLE

TO GET SUBSIDIES FOR

OBAMACARE.

THEY ARE TRYING TO CREATE

STATE-LEVEL PROGRAMS TO FIX

THE PROBLEM.

BUT AFTER A RECENT HOSPITAL

STAY, REED SAYS HE NEEDS A

SOLUTION NOW.

I GOT MY FIRST HOSPITAL

BILL FOR $17,000, AND THAT'S

JUST THE FIRST.

I HAVEN'T EVEN GOTTEN THE

DOCTORS' AND SPECIALISTS'

BILLS.

I'M GOING TO BE PAYING FOR

THIS FOREVER.

Reporter: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS.

HOBBY LOBBY IS FILING A

SUPREME COURT BRIEF OVER THE

CONSCEPTION MANDATE.

THEY OBJECT TO THE RULE THAT

REQUIRES EMPLOYERS TO

SUBSIDIZE BIRTH CONTROL AS

PART OF EMPLOYEE HEALTH CARE

BENEFITS.

THEY ARGUE THE MANDATE

VIOLATES THEIR RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS.

ABOUT 40 OTHER COMPANIES

HAVE FILED SUIT OVER THAT

MANDATE.

THE SUPREME COURT WILL

DECIDE WHETHER THE RELIGIOUS

VIEWS OF COMPANY OWNERS CAN

TRUMP A GOVERNMENT MANDATE.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS

PAYING $2 MILLION TO THE

FAMILY OF A BOTCHED ABORTION

VICTIM.

IN 2012, TANYA REEVES BLED

TO DEATH OVER A BOTCH

ABORTION IN CHICAGO.

LAST YEAR THE GROUP FILED A

COMPLAINT REQUESTING AN

INVESTIGATION INTO THE

CLINIC RESPONSIBLE FOR THE

BOTCHED ABORTION, BUT NO

ACTION HAS BEEN TAKEN.

SO THE SOCIETY IS RENEWING

ITS CALL FOR MORE INSPECTION

AND REGULATIONS OF ABORTION

CLINICS IN ILLINOIS.

THEY SAY IT IS A SLAP IN THE

FACE TO EVERY WOMAN WHO

WALKS THROUGH THE DOORS OF

THE MAKES' LARGEST ABORTION

PROVIDER.

IT IS ANOTHER SIGN OF THE

TIME.

SOON YOU MAY BE ABLE TO PAY

BY HAND, LITERALLY.

WWR TV REPORTS THAT TWO

FRIENDS IN NEW JERSEY HAVE

COME UP WITH A SYSTEM THAT

LINKS YOUR CREDIT CARD

INFORMATION AND OTHER

PAYMENT METHODS TO YOUR

PALM.

THE TECHNOLOGY SCANS THE

PATTERNS OF YOUR VEINS IN

YOUR PALMS, AND THEN YOU CAN

USE THAT INFORMATION TO

CONFIRM YOUR IDENTITY WHEN

YOU PAY FOR SOMETHING AT A

CHECKOUT OR ELSEWHERE.

BY USING A BIOMETRIC PAYMENT

TERMINAL.

THE DEVICE ARE SET FOR MASS

PRODUCTION IN THE SPRING.

COMING UP, A TIME FOR

CHOOSING.

WHY RONALD REAGAN'S MESSAGE

IS STILL RESONATING TODAY.

Ephraim: NORTH KOREA

HAS WITHDRAWN ITS INVITATION

FOR U.S. OFFICIALS TO VISIT

KENNETH BAE.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT HAS

CALLED FOR BAE'S IMMEDIATE

RELEASE.

HE HAS BEEN HELD FOR MORE

THAN A YEAR NOW.

THEY JAILED HIM FOR

SO-CALLED ANTI-GOVERNMENT

ACTS BACK IN NOVEMBER 2012,

WHEN HE WAS LEAD AG TOUR

GROUP THERE.

NORTH KOREA IS REFUSING TO

ALLOW U.S. OFFICIALS TO

VISIT THERE.

FILIPINO AUTHORITIES HAVE

RELEASED AN OHIO PASTOR AND

MISSIONARY.

HIS Facebook PAGE SHOWS

THAT TOM RANDALL ARRIVED

BACK HOME LAST WEEK.

AUTHORITIES WERE HOLDING HIM

IN CONNECTION WITH A HUMAN

TRAFFICKING CASE AT A

FILIPINO ORPHANAGE THAT HE

FOUNDED.

THE CHRISTIAN POST REPORTED

THAT 31 ORPHANS THERE SAY

THEY WERE ROUTINELY RAPED.

LAW PROFESSOR EXPERT CHASE

SAYS HE HOPES THE FOCUS WILL

TURN TO HELPING

INVESTIGATORS LEARN THE

TRUTH.

THE LEADERSHIP OF THE OR

NAG ORPHANAGE HAS A LEGAL

AND MORAL DUTY TO FULLY

COOPERATE WITH THAT, AND TO

COMMUNICATE THAT PUBLICLY,

TO LET PEOPLE KNOW WE ARE

GRIEVED BY THESE

ALLEGATIONS, WE ARE GRIEVED

BY THE VERY THOUGHT THAT

THESE PRECIOUS CHILDREN MAY

HAVE BEEN HURT AND ABUSED IN

OUR CARE.

JOE COFFEE, THE LEAD

PROTESTOR AT RANDALL'S

CHURCH SAYS "WE REMAIN

CONCERNED ABOUT THE ORPHANS

WITHOUT A HOME TO RETURN TO,

AND WE WILL DO ALL WE CAN TO

CARE FOR THEM."

Ephraim: 50 YEARS AGO,

AMERICAN VOTERS FACED

SIMILAR CONDITIONS TO WHAT

OUR NATION IS FACING NOW.

RONALD REAGAN URGED THE

PUBLIC TO ELECT BARRY

GOLDWATER AS PRESIDENT.

Charlene: AS HEATHER

CELLS REPORTS, IT WAS THE

SI SYMPOSIUM AT REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

Reporter: BEFORE HE WAS

PRESIDENT, RONALD REAGAN

PRESENTED A TIME FOR

CHOOSING.

THE SPEECH WAS GIVEN IN

1964, BUT MANY OF THE ISSUES

SOUND VERY 2014.

WE HAVEN'T BALANCED OUR

BUDGET 28 OUT OF THE LAST 34

YEARS.

WE HAVE RAISED OUR DEBT

LIMIT THREE TIMES IN THE

LAST 12 MONTHS.

WE'RE AGAINST FORCING ALL

CITIZENS, REGARDLESS OF

NEED, INTO A COMPULSARY

GOVERNMENT PROGRAM.

Reporter: WHAT REAGAN

ESSENTIALLY DID WAS TO CAST

A VISION OF TWO STARKLY

DIFFERENT WORLD VIEWS.

AND MANY HERE AT THIS

SYMPOSIUM FEEL THOSE VIEWS

ARE STILL BEING FIERCELY

DEBATED TODAY.

THE REASON IT RESONATES

NOW IS BECAUSE WE HAVE A

SENSE OF HAVING LOST OUR

WAY.

FOR REAGAN, THE THREAT

WAS ALWAYS THAT COERCING ARM

OF GOVERNMENT.

THINGS CHANGE AND THEY STAY

THE SAME.

RONALD REAGAN WAS

SPEAKING BOLDLY.

IT MIGHT NOT HAVE WORKED OUT

AFTER WHAT HE SAID.

MAYBE HIS POLITICAL CAREER

WOULD BE OVER.

BUT HE FELT HE HAD TO SAY

THE TRUTH.

IT WAS CALLED "A TIME FOR

CHOOSING," BECAUSE IT WAS A

TIME FOR CHOOSING.

Reporter: IN FACT, THE

SPEECH LAUNCHED REAGAN'S

POLITICAL CAREER.

SOON AFTER, HE RAN FOR

GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA.

AND IT PROPELLED THE IDEA OF

AN EMERGING CONSERVATIVE

MOVEMENT ON TO THE NATIONAL

STAGE.

UNINTENTIONALLY, OF COURSE,

IT ALSO FO FORESHADOWED

TODAY'S CONCERNS OVER

GOVERNMENT CONTROL AND LOSS

OF FREEDOM.

OUR NATURAL RIGHTS ARE

NOW CONSIDERED TO BE A

DISPEN SATION OF GOVERNMENT,

AND FREEDOM HAS NEVER BEEN

SO FRAGILE.

REAGAN SAW IF YOU DON'T

RESTRAIN GOVERNMENT, IT

WILL, BY DEFAULT, HAVE A

GRAVITATIONAL PULL, AND IT

MEANS THE EROSION OF

FREEDOM.

Reporter: THE DEBATE

THIS YEAR DREW ACADEMICS AND

STUDENTS, AND MANY WHO

REALIZED HOW RELEVANT ITS

TRUTHS ARE TODAY.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Charlene: UP NEXT, SHE

IS KNOWN ON THE INTERNET

SIMPLY AS THE BRAVE GERMAN

WOMAN.

AND THIS PHONE VIDEO OF HERE

HAS GONE VIRAL.

FIND OUT WHAT SHE DID AND

WHY WHEN WE COME BACK.

Ephraim: ISLAM IS STILL

GROWING IN POWER AND

INFLUENCE VISIT EUROPE.

Charlene: AND IN

GERMANY, ONE CHRISTIAN WOMAN

HAS TAKEN A VERY PUBLIC

STAND AGAINST IT.

IN THIS CBN NEWS EXCLUSIVE,

DALE HURD BRINGS US HER

FIRST TELEVISION INTERVIEW.

Reporter: IT WAS

SUPPOSED TO BE AN INTERFAITH

CONCERT TO BRING

CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM

TOGETHER.

BUT WHEN THE MUSLIM IMAM

BEGAN HIS CALL TO PRAYER, HE

WAS INTERRUPTED BY A SMALL

WOMAN IN THE BALCONY,

PROCLAIMING THAT JESUS

CHRIST IS LORD OF GERMANY,

AND SAYING, I BREAK THIS

CURSE.

SHE ALSO INVOKED THE NAME OF

MARTIN LUTHER, AND WARNED

THE AUDIENCE THAT WHAT WAS

HAPPENING WAS A LIE.

THE VIDEO WENT VIRAL, AND

THIS MYSTERIOUS CHRISTIAN

LADY BECAME KNOWN ON THE

INTERNET SIMPLY AT THE BRAVE

GERMAN WOMAN.

IT HAPPENED AT THE MEMORIAL

CHURCH OF THE REFORMATION IN

THE CITY OF SPIRE, BUILT TO

HONOR MARTIN LUTHER.

THIS ISN'T JUST A

CHURCH.

IT IS A MONUMENT TO THE

PROTESTANT REFORMATION, AND

A MEMORIAL TO THE SPIRITUAL

TRANSFORMATION OF GERMANY AS

A NATION.

Reporter: IT WAS AT

THIS SPIRITUAL LANDMARK THAT

A MUSLIM IMAM WAS INVITED TO

GIVE A CALL TO PRAYER.

WHEN THE BRAVE GERMAN WOMAN

HEARD ABOUT THE EVENT, SHE

PRAYED.

I WAS ASKING JESUS -- I

SAID, LORD, SHALL I GO

THERE?

AND WHEN I HAVE TO DRIVE ONE

AND A HALF HOURS, I THINK

ABOUT IS IT WORTH TO GO, OR

CAN OTHERS GO?

THIS IS, I THINK, A HUMAN

LAZINESS.

Reporter: SHE GRABBED

HER GERMAN FLAG

EMBLAZE-OWNED WITH THE

WORDS, "JESUS CHRIST IS

LORD."

UNTIL THE IMAM STARTED

SHOUTING, I DID NOT REALLY

KNOW WHAT TO DO.

I HAD MY THOUGHTS, BUT IT

WAS NOT SURE.

I WAS JUST PREPARED FOR WHAT

GOD WANTS ME TO DO.

Reporter: THEN THE

MUSLIM CALL TO PRAYER BEGAN,

AND HEIDI SAYS SHE FELT

SOMETHING RIDING UP INSIDE

HER.

I WOULD CALL IT A HOLY

ANGER.

AND THEN I ROSE MY FLAG AND

I WAS PROCLAIMING THAT JESUS

CHRIST IS LORD OVER

GERMANY.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

AND BY PROTEST, I BROKE

THIS CURSE.

BECAUSE ALLAHU AKBAR IS WHAT

THEY SAY, ONLY ALLAH IS THE

LORD.

HE IS LORD.

HE IS GOD.

THE ONLY GOD.

AND I BROKE THIS CURSE IN

THIS CHURCH AND I BROKE IT

OVER MY COUNTRY.

Reporter: AND SHE

REPEATED THE WORDS OF MARTIN

LUTHER IN 1521, AFTER HE

WROTE "HERE I STAND.

I CAN DO NO OTHER."

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

Reporter: SHE WAS

THROWN OUT OF THE CHURCH.

THEY SHOULD HAVE THROWN

IMAM OUT OF THE CHURCH AND

NOT ME BECAUSE I'M A

BELIEVER IN JESUS CHRIST.

BUT HE IS OF ANOTHER GOD.

THIS ALLAH IS NOT THE SAME

GOD.

THIS IS NOT THE TRUTH.

IF ALLAHU AKBAR -- I THINK

IN GENERAL MOST OF US USE IT

WHEN THEY KILL PEOPLE.

THIS IS, FOR ME, A WORSHIP

TO AN IDOL, TO THEIR GOD.

AND THEY BRING THIS BLOOD

OFFERING TO THEIR GOD.

AND WHEN THE MUSLIMS CALL

ALLAHU AKBAR IN THE CHURCH,

THAT MEANS THIS CHURCH IS

NOT A CHURCH ANYMORE, IT'S A

MOSQUE.

Reporter: WITH HEIDI AT

THE CONCERT WAS KAMEL AND

MARY ANN.

BEFORE COMING TO GERMANY,

KAMEL LIVES IN THE MUSLIM

WORD AND TOLD US AN IMAM HAS

NO PLACE IN A CHURCH.

MUSLIMS HAVE PERSECUTED

ME.

THEY DON'T WANT ME TO TELL

OTHERS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS

MY SAVIOR.

Reporter: MARY ANN

BELONGS TO A GROUP CALLED

"THE WHITE ROSE."

SHOWN IN THE FILM, SOPHIE

SHOLE, THE FINAL DAYS.

ISLAM IS INHUMANE, THE

SAME AS THE IN THE NAZI

TIME.

WE WANT TO SHOW GERMANY AND

THE WORLD THAT WE WILL NOT

BOW DOWN TO THE SLOW

ISLAMIZATION OF OUR

COUNTRY.

Reporter: HEIDI KNOWS

HER FIRST TELEVISION

INTERVIEW COULD PLACE HER IN

GREATER DANGER.

PEOPLE ASK ME, DO YOU

HAVE FEAR?

ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE

MUSLIMS?

AND I CAN ONLY SAY NO.

I'M NOT AFRAID OF THEM.

I KNOW MY GOD, THE LIVING

GOD OF THE BIBLE, CAN

PROTECT ME AS LONG AS HE

WANTS.

WHEN MY TIME IS OVER, I WILL

GO TO HIM.

Reporter: AN EVANGELIST

BY GIFTING, HID HEIDI GREW

UP AS AN ATHEIST IN

COMMUNIST EAST GERMANY, BUT

NOW IS A BELIEVER.

HER BURDEN AND MINISTRY IS

FOR THE SPIRITUAL REBIRTH OF

GERMANY.

I FEEL I HAVE TO PROTECT

MY COUNTRY AND MY PEOPLE.

I'M ONLY A LITTLE WOMAN, BUT

I FEEL I HAVE TO PROTECT

THEM.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

[YELLING]

Reporter: MANY PEOPLE

ASSOCIATE GERMANY WITH THE

NAZIS, BUT GERMANY WAS ONCE

A BASE FOR WORLD MISSIONS,

SENDING MISSIONARIES TO

AFRICA, KOREA, AND AMERICA.

HEIDI IS TRUSTING GOD TO DO

A MIRACLE IN WHAT TODAY IS A

VERY WEALTHY AND SOME WOULD

SAY SPIRITUALLY DEAD

NATION.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR

MY GOD.

NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING.

FROM A HUMAN POINT OF VIEW,

I FEEL THAT OUR COUNTRY IS

LOST.

ALREADY LOST.

IT'S DONE.

BUT I TRUST GOD, THAT HE HAS

A PLAN.

AND THAT MY COUNTRY IS NOT

LOST.

THAT HE WILL REACH US AND HE

WILL COME AND CHANGE THE

WHOLE SITUATION.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS, IN WESTERN

GERMANY.

Charlene: WELL,

EPHRAIM, VALENTINE'S DAY IS

A FEW DAYS AWAY, AND SOME

PRESCHOOLERS ARE ALREADY

PREPARING.

Ephraim: THEY'RE MAKING

A SPECIAL CARD FOR A SOLDIER

SERVING IN AFGHANISTAN.

THE STUDENTS ARE BETWEEN THE

AGES OF 3 AND 5, SO THEY

MIGHT NOT UNDERSTAND THE

REALITY OF DEPLOYMENT, BUT

ONE THING THEIR TEACHERS

MAKE SURE THEY KNOW,

SOLDIERS SACRIFICE A LOT FOR

OUR FREEDOM.

SOME OF THE KIDS EVEN HAVE

FAMILY MEMBERS SERVING

OVERSEAS.

WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT

IT ALL WEEK LONG, AND SOME

OF THE CHILDREN ACTUALLY

HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS THAT

HAVE BEEN DEPLOYED AND THEY

UNDERSTAND.

YOU DO ARTS AND CRAFTS.

TAKE ONE DAY AND DO CARDS OR

LETTERS AND I'LL SHIP THEM

OVER FOR YOU.

AND I SAID, THESE GUYS ARE

GOING TO LOVE IT.

THIS IS PERFECT.

Ephraim: IT IS PERFECT

AND BEAUTIFUL.

THE VALENTINE'S SUR VICES

SURPRISES WILL INCLUDE CARDS

AND SWEET TREAT.

IT IS THROUGH THE PROGRAMME

"OPERATION ADOPT A

SOLDIER."

Charlene: I LOVE IT.

PRETTY GOOD SNACKS IN THERE,

TOO.

THAT'S GOING TO DO IT FOR

NOW FOR CBN NEWS KAY.

TODAY.

YOU CAN FIND MORE COVERAGE

ON CBNNEWS.COM.

Ephraim: AND YOU CAN

TALK TO US ON Facebook OR

AT CBN NEWS ON TWITTER.

MAKE IT A MARVELOUS DAY,

EVERYBODY.
