TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

TAX FREEDOM DAY, WHY TODAY

MARKS A SHIFT IN YOUR YEARLY

EARNINGS.

PLUS, THE VICE PRESIDENT

HEADS TO UKRAINE AND WHAT

SOME SUGGEST THAT AMERICA

SHOULD DO TO STOP ANY

RUSSIAN ADVANCE.

AND SHOCKING STORIES OF

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION FROM

THE MOST HINDU NATION IN THE

WORLD.

ALL OF THIS AND MUCH MORE

TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH."

IT'S TAX FREEDOM DAY ACROSS

AMERICA.

GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE, I'M

WENDY GRIFFITH.

WELL, UP UNTIL TODAY ALL OF

YOUR EARNINGS HAVE GONE TO

PAY FOR TAXES.

MOST AMERICANS DON'T LIKE

THE IDEA OF WORKING MORE

THAN FOUR AND A HALF MONTHS

JUST TO PAY ALL OF THEIR

TAXES, AND MANY SAY IT ISN'T

FAIR SO MUCH OF THEIR MONEY

GOES TO PAY WASHINGTON'S

BILLS.

PAUL STRAND HAS TONIGHT'S

TOP STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: IF YOU PUT

OFF DOING YOUR TAXES UNTIL

THE APRIL 15th DEADLINE,

YOU MAY FEEL YOUR TAX

NIGHTMARE ENDED LAST WEEK,

BUT FOR YOUR POCKETBOOK, IT

STILL HAS BEEN GOING ON, AS

YOU CONTINUE TO FUNNEL MONEY

HERE TO THE TREASURY

DEPARTMENT AND OTHER PARTS

OF THE GOVERNMENT UNTIL THIS

WEEK.

THIS ECONOMIST FROM

TAXFOUNDATION.ORG.

THIS YEAR IT WILL TAKE

AMERICANS 111 DAYS TO PAY

THEIR TOTAL TAX BILL FOR THE

YEAR.

Reporter: SO FAR ALL OF

YOUR LABOR THROUGHOUT 2014

HAS GONE JUST TO PAY TAXES

UNTIL THIS DAY.

CONTRAST THAT TO THE WORKERS

OF 1900, WHO ONLY HA HAD TO

WORK THREE WHOLE MONTHS

LESS.

THEY HAVE PAYROLL TAXES,

CORPORATE INCOME TAXES, AND

AN ADDITIONAL $1.5 TRILLION

FOR SALES TAXES AND EXCISE

TAXES TO THREE STATE.

Reporter: IT GOES TO

PAYING THE COST OF

GOVERNMENT AND SOCIAL

PROGRAMS.

COMPARE THAT TO 1900, WHEN

AMERICANS SAW A BIT UNDER 6%

OF THEIR INCOME EATEN UP BY

TAXES.

MOST CITIZENS ACTUALLY PAY

MORE FOR GOVERNMENT THAN

THEY DO FOR THEIR FOOD,

THEIR HOMES, AND THEIR

CLOTHES.

THIS YEAR WE'LL BE PAYING A

TOTAL TAX BILL OF

$4.5 TRILLION, THIS IS MORE

THAN WE PAY AS A NATION ON

FOOD, CLOTHING, AND HOUSING

COMBINED.

Reporter: SO WHAT DO

AMERICANS THINK ABOUT ALL OF

THIS?

52% FEEL TAXES ARE TOO

HIGH.

42% FEEL THEY'RE JUST ABOUT

RIGHT.

AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT, 3% OF

AMERICANS ACTUALLY FEEL

THEIR TAXES ARE TOO LOW.

IF YOU FEEL YOUR OVERALL

TAXES WENT UP, YOU'RE NOT

IMAGINING IT.

THAT FISCAL CLIFF DEAL THAT

THE WASHINGTON POLITICIANS

WORKED OUT AT THE START OF

LAST YEAR, HAVE RAISED THE

TAXES OF MORE THAN

THREE-FOURTHS OF AMERICANS.

AND THE SEVERAL OF

OBAMACARE'S TAX HIKES HAVE

TAKEN EFFECT.

SO DON'T BE LOOKING FOR TAX

RELIEF IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

Wendy: AND JOINING US

NOW WITH MORE IS JORDAN

LIEBERMAN, PRESIDENT OF

"CAMPAIGN GRID."

YOU HAVE A LOT OF EXPERIENCE

WITH POLITICAL COMPAIGNS AND

THE ISSUES THAT ARE

IMPORTANT TO VOTERS.

DOES IT SURPRISE YOU THAT

ONLY 52% OF AMERICANS FEEL

THAT TAXES ARE TOO HIGH?

YEAH, IT DOES.

THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE

WHO ACTUALLY DON'T PAY TAXES

AT ALL, AND SO THERE IS

REALLY -- IT'S REALLY

DISJOINTED FROM PEOPLE WHO

THINK THEY'RE PAYING TOO

MUCH VERSES PEOPLE WHO ARE

PAYING TOO MUCH.

AND I'M FASCINATED BY THE 3%

OF PEOPLE WHO WOULD LIKE TO

PAY MORE TAXES.

I'D LIKE TO GET THEIR NAME

AND NUMBER.

Wendy: THAT'S A LITTLE

CRAZY.

HOW BIG OF AN ISSUE DO YOU

THINK TAXES WILL BE IN THIS

YEAR'S MID-TERM ELECTIONS?

IT IS GOING TO BE THE TOP

ISSUE.

OBAMACARE IS REALLY

PASSING.

I THINK REPUBLICANS ARE

GIVING UP THAT OBAMACARE

WILL NOT BE OVERTURNED.

THERE ARE NO WARS WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT.

IT IS TAXES.

THIS IS IT.

WE'RE TRYING TO RECOVER FROM

THE JOB LOSSES, AND ARE

POCKETBOOK ISSUES ARE FRONT

AND FOREMOST RIGHT NOW.

Wendy: WHY DO YOU THINK

A FULL 42% OF AMERICANS

BELIEVE THAT THE AMOUNT OF

TAXES THAT THEY PAY IS ABOUT

RIGHT?

THAT SURPRISES ME.

I THINK THOSE ARE PEOPLE

THAT ARE PROBABLY LOWER

INCOME THAT HAVE A

RELATIVELY TAX BURDEN.

YOU'LL SEE THAT.

THE WEALTHY ARE PAYING THE

LION SHARE OF THE TAXES.

I THINK THERE ARE A LOT OF

PEOPLE THAT DON'T REALLY

KNOW WHAT THEY PAY, VERSES

WHAT THE REST OF THE COUNTRY

PAYS.

Wendy: MOST PEOPLE ARE

WELL-AWARE THAT APRIL 15th

IS THE DEADLINE TO FILE AN

INCOME TAX RETURN.

DO YOU THINK THAT THE

AVERAGE AMERICAN THINKS

ABOUT TAX FREEDOM DAY OR IS

IT JUST NOT ON THEIR RADAR?

I'M SURE THEY THINK ABOUT

IT, ESPECIALLY THIS TIME

BECAUSE WE JUST SENT ALL OF

OUR TAX RETURNS.

I WAS AT THE POST OFFICE ON

THE 15th AND I SAW A LOT

OF PEOPLE RUNNING TO TRY TO

BEAT THE POST MARK.

THE TIMING IS CERTAINLY IT.

Wendy: THEY DON'T HAVE

LATE HOURS ANYMORE.

I JUST DISCOVERED THAT

BECAUSE I'M A LAST-MINUTE

FILER MYSELF.

JORDAN LIEBERMAN WITH

"CAMPAIGN GRID," THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN WENT TO

UKRAINE, AND HIS VISIT COMES

AT UKRAINIAN OFFICIALS SAY

THEY HAVE PHOTOGRAPHIC PROOF

THAT RUSSIAN FORCES ARE AT

WORK IN THE EASTERN PART OF

THE COUNTRY.

AND THE AMERICAN SENATORS

ARE CALLING FOR THE UNITED

STATES TO DO MORE TO STOP

RUSSIAN ACTIONS.

DALE HURD HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: VLADIMIR

PUTIN IS ON THE MARCH,

HAVING ALREADY INVADED AND

RETAKEN SOUTH OSSEDIA AND

NOW CRIMEA.

RUSSIAN TROOPS ARE POISED ON

THE BORDER OF UKRAINE, READY

TO TAKE MORE.

A LEADING RUSSIAN THINK-TANK

SAYS RUSSIAN, FOR ONCE, IS

NOT ON THE OFFENSIVE.

IT IS ADVANCING.

PRESIDENT PUTIN HAS A

DREAM TO RESTORE THE SOVIET

UNION.

AND EVERY DAY HE GOES

FURTHER AND FURTHER.

AND GOD KNOWS WHERE IS THE

FINAL DESTINATION.

Reporter: BUT VLADIMIR

PUTIN'S MILITARY AMBITIONS

CARRY A STEEP COST FOR

RUSSIA.

THE NATION'S ECONOMY HAS

ALREADY BEEN HAMPERED BY A

CREDIT CRUNCH AND CAPITAL

FLIGHT.

$52BILLION IS SAID TO HAVE

LEFT RUSSIA SO FAR.

AND RUSSIAN COMPANIES HAVE

BEEN SHUT OUT OF GLOBAL

CAPITAL MARKETS ALMOST

COMPLETELY, MEANING THEY'LL

NEED STATE MONEY TO STAY IN

BUSINESS.

AND AMERICAN LAWMAKERS SAY

RUSSIA NEEDS TO FEEL MORE

ECONOMIC PAIN.

I THINK THE TIME IS NOW

TO RAPIDLY RATCHET UP OUR

SANCTIONS, WHETHER IT IS ON

THEIR CHEMICAL COMPANIES OR

BANKS.

IF RUSSIA GETS AWAY WITH

THIS, THERE I IS THE

POTENTIAL THAT A NATO ALLY

WILL BE NEXT.

Reporter: MANY ARE AT

RISK FROM A REVIVED RUSSIA,

INCLUDING, IT WOULD SEEM,

JEWS.

ANTI-SEMITIC LEAFLETS CALLED

FOR THE RELEASE OF JEWS.

THE RUSSIAN SUPPORTERS SAID

TO BE BEHIND THE LEAFLETS

DENOUNCE THEM AS FAKE, BUT

JEWS ARE UNDERSTANDABLY

UPSET.

THIS RABBI SAID, I CAN SAY

THAT WE'RE VERY SHOCKED,

SHOCKED BY THE FACT THAT

SOMEONE ALLOWED THEMSELVES

TO PRINT AND DISTRIBUTE SUCH

LEAFLETS.

Reporter: VLADIMIR

PUTIN HAS SAID THE GREATEST

TRAGEDY OF THE 20th

CENTURY WAS THE DEATH OF THE

SOVIET UNION, BUT MANY OF

RUSSIA'S NEIGHBORS CLEARLY

FEEL THE GREAT TORONTO BLUE

JAYTRAGEDY OF THIS CENTURY

WILL BE IF PUTIN SUCCEEDS IN

REVIVING IT.

Wendy: A VOTE WILL BE

HELD JUNE 3rd.

IN TODAY'S ANNOUNCEMENT,

SYRIA'S PARLIAMENT SPEAKER

ENCOURAGED MANY TO TAKE PART

IN THE ELECTION PROCESS.

PRESIDENT BASHAR

al-ASSAD HAS ALREADY

SUGGESTED HE WILL SEEK

ANOTHER SEVEN-YEAR TERM.

ACTIVISTS SAY THEY WILL

BOYCOTT THE VOTE, CALLING IT

A FARCE.

THE SYRIAN SILVER WAR BEGAN

IN 2011 AS AN UPRISING

AGAINST THE ASSAD REGIME.

SINCE THEN, WELL OVER

100,000 SERE,000 SYRIANS IN

THE VIOLENCE.

SOUTH KOREA'S PRESIDENT IS

CALLING THE CREW AND THE

CAPTAIN OF THE FERRY

UNFORGIVABLE ACTS.

THE CAPTAIN WAS ARRESTED

OVER THE WEEKEND.

SIX OTHER CREW MEMBERS HAVE

BEEN DETAINED.

THEY ARE ACCUSED OF WAITING

OVER A HALF HOUR FOR

EVACUATION, DESPITE

INSTRUCTIONS TO DO SO MUCH

SOONER.

THE CONDUCT OF THE

CAPTAIN AND SOME CREW

MEMBERS WAS NOT COMMON

SENSE.

IT WAS LIKE AN ACT OF MURDER

THAT SHOULD NOT BE

TOLERATED.

Wendy: DIVERS ENTERED

THE SUNKEN VESSEL OVER THE

WEEKEND.

SO FAR AT LEAST 87 BODIES

HAVE BEEN RECOVERED AND OVER

200 ARE STILL MISSING,

INCLUDING MANY HIGH SCHOOL

STUDENTS WHO WERE ON A FIELD

TRIP THAT DAY.

AN ACT OF TERRORISM MAY HAVE

HIJACKED THE BOSTON MARATHON

LAST YEAR, BUT TODAY RUNNERS

WERE BACK ON THE CITY'S

STREETS FOR ONE OF THE

WORLDS PREMIER ATHLETIC

EVENTS.

AS JON WASAGA EXPLAINS,

SECURITY WAS MUCH TIGHTER

AND THE VICTIMS OF LAST

APRIL'S ATTACK WERE NOT

FORGOTTEN.

Reporter: AFTER SEVERAL

DAYS OF EMOTIONAL TRIBUTES

AND THE ANNUAL BLESSING OF

THE RUNNERS, IT WAS A RACE

WITH A PURPOSE FOR TRAUMA

SURGEON DR. DAVID KING.

IT IS A SYMBOLIC GESTURE

THAT WE'RE NOT GOING TO

COWER TO THE SPECTOR OF

TERRORISM.nn

Reporter: KING RAN IN

LAST YEAR'S RACE AND THEN

TREATED MANY OF THOSE WHO

WERE WOUNDED IN THE DEADLY

ATTACK NEAR THE FINISH

LINE.

HAVING SUCH AN INTIMATE

RELATIONSHIP AND SHARED IN

SO MANY REMARKABLE MOMENTS

WITH MY PATIENTS, AND NOT

WANT TO RUN FOR THEM TO

CELEBRATE THEIR RECOVERY, I

CAN'T IMAGINE NOT DOING IT.

Reporter: TO START THE

RACE ON PATRIOTS DAY IN

BOSTON, A MOMENT OF SILENCE

FOR THE FOUR WHO DIED,

INCLUDING A POLICE OFFICER,

AND THE 260 WOUNDED.

THERE WAS A FLOOD OF 36,000

RUNNERS, THE SECOND LARGEST

FIELD IN HISTORY.

THEY WOUND THEIR WAY THROUGH

THE STREETS WITH DOUBLE OF

NUMBER OF SECURITY CAMERAS

FROM LAST YEAR.

MORE THAN 3,000 POLICE

PATROLLED THE COURSE.

AMONG THOSE REFLECTING ON

THE RACE AND THEIR LIVES,

BROTHERS J.P. AND PAUL

MORGAN, WHO EACH LOST A LEG

IN THE BOMBING.

WE'RE MORE POSITIVE

PEOPLE NOW.

I'M VERY HAPPY NOW.

BEFORE I WAS JUST CON

CONTENT, AND NOW I'M HAPPY.

Reporter: ALSO HAPPY,

THE KENYA'S WINNER, RITA

JEPTOO, AND MEG BECAME THE

FIRST AMERICAN TO WIN IN 30

YEARS.

Wendy: COMING UP, HOW

THE FILIPINO AN GOVERNMENT

AND MUSLIM REBELS HAVE COME

TO A PEACE AGREEMENT 17

YEARS IN THE MAKING.

Wendy: PRESIDENT OBAMA

THIS WEEK WILL BEGIN AN

EIGHT-DAY TRIP ACROSS ASIA,

AIMED AT STRENGTHENING TIES

WITH KEY COUNTRIES LIKE THE

PHILIPPINES, JAPAN,

MALAYSIA, AND SOUTH KOREA.

NOTICEABLY MISSING FROM THAT

LINEUP, CHINA.

HE WILL HAVE TO BE CAREFUL

NOT TO AILIATE BEIJING.

UP UNTIL NOW, THE U.S. HAS

NOT FORMALLY TAKEN SIDES IN

ANY OF THE CASES.

FOR MORE THAN 100 YEARS,

ISLAMIC REBELS IN THE

SOUTHERN PHILIPPINES HAVE

WAGED WAR WITH THE

GOVERNMENT THERE.

NOW AFTER MORE THAN 17 YEARS

OF NEGOTIATIONS, THEY SIGNED

A PEACE AGREEMENT WITH A

MAJOR FACTION OF THE REBELúó

COALITION.

LUCILLE TALUSEN HAS

DETAILS.

Reporter: THE HISTORIC

PEACE AGREEMENT WAS SIGNED

BY MEMBERS OF THE PHILIPPINE

GOVERNMENT AND THE MORAL

ISLAMIC LIBERATION FRONT, OR

MILF, AND IT IS THE BIGGEST

BREAK-AWAY GROUP OF THE

LIBERATION FRONT.

IN SEPTEMBER OF LAST, SOME

MEMBERS OF MLMF SEIZED THE

CITY OF UWANGA, LEAVING MANY

MISPLACED.

THIS MAN WAS ONE OF THE

VICTIMS OF THE WAR.

OUR HOUSE WAS ONE OF

METER AWAY FROM THE

FIGHTING.

THAT'S WHY I'M SO HAPPY THE

PEACE AGREEMENT WAS

FINALIZED.

Reporter: THER THERE

ARE OTHER MUSLIM GROUPS THAT

HAVE TO BE RECKONED WITH.

BUT MANY ARE BELIEVING THAT

THIS AGREEMENT IS THE

LASTING PEACE AND PROGRESS

IN THE PREDOMINANTLY MUSLIM

REGION OF MINDANAO.

CHRISTIAN INVOLVEMENT FOR

FINDING PEACEFUL SOLUTIONS

FOR THE DECCADES-OLD

CONFLICT IN MINDANAO HELPED

END THE INSURGENCY THAT LEFT

AN ESTIMATED 150,000 PEOPLE

DEAD IN 1970.

THEY CONSULTED WITH US.

WE HAD A NO HOLDS BAR

DISCUSSION.

AND WE WILL HAVE FREEDOM OF

RELIGION, THAT WILL BE

GUARANTEED.

AND THEN THE MUSLIM LEADER

SAID, CAN YOU PRAY FOR US.

Reporter: THE

PHILIPPINE CONGRESS MUST

APPROVE THE PEACE PLAN

BEFORE IT CAN BECOME LAW.

THE PHILIPPINE PRESIDENT

FULLY SUPPORTS THE PEACE

PLAN AND GAVE A WARNING TO

ANYONE WHO ATTEMPTS TO

DERAIL IT.

I WILL NOT LET PEACE BE

SNATCHED FROM MY PEOPLE

AGAIN.

NOT NOW, WHEN WE HAVE

ALREADY UNDERTAKEN THE MOST

DIFFICULT AND MOST

SIGNIFICANT STEPS TO ACHIEVE

IT.

Reporter: BECAUSE OF

THE OPPOSITION FROM THE

DIFFERENT ISLAMIC GROUPS, IT

MAY STILL BE A LONG AND

TOUGH JOURNEY BEFORE PEACE

IN THE SOUTHERN PHILIPPINES

CAN FINALLY BECOME A

REALITY.

LUCILLE TALUSEN, CBN NEWS,

MANILA.

Wendy: THANKS,

LUCILLE.

UP NEXT, PERSECUTION IN

NEPAL.

HOW CHRISTIANS THERE ARE

SHARING THE GOOD NEWS,

DISBAD TREATMENT.

Wendy: THE FUTURE OF

CLIMBING MOUNT EVEREST IS IN

JEOPARDY.

THERE ARE CALLS TONIGHT FOR

SHERPAS TO BOYCOTT

EXPEDITIONS UP THE

MOUNTAIN.

THE ETHNIC SHERPA COMMUNITY

IS WEIGHING THE DECISION.

MANY RELY ON LEADING EVEREST

TOURS AS THEIR MAIN SOURCE

OF INCOME.

A HIGH ALTITUDE GUIDE CAN

EARN AROUND $6,000 DURING A

THREE-MONTH CLIMBING

SEASON.

AN AVERAGE PERSON IN NEPAL

EARNS ONLY $700.

HINDUISM AND MAOISM FACE

PERSECUTION, BUT GOD IS ON

THE MOVE THERE.

I AM FROM A HINDU

FAMILY.

BEFORE I CAME TO CHRIST, MY

LIFE WAS IN DARKNESS, AND I

DIDN'T KNOW GOD.

Reporter: SHE FACED

PERSECUTION FROM HER OWN

FAMILY WHEN HE LEFT HINDUISM

FOR CHRISTIANITY.

WHEN I ACCEPTED JESUS

CHRIST AS MY SAVIOR, THE

PERSECUTION STARTED TO COME

INTO MY LIFE.

MY MOTHER ASKED ME, DO YOU

LOVE YOUR RELIGION MORE THAN

YOUR PARENTS?

I TOLD HER I LOVE BOTH.

SHE HATED ME FOR FOLLOWING

CHRIST.

AND SHE USED TO SAY BAD

WORDS TO ME.

Reporter: PHYSICAL

ATTACKS SOON FOLLOWED.

SHE SAYS HER MOTHER

THREATENED TO KILL HER WITH

A SICKLE, AND BLIND HER WITH

A NAIL.

MY MOTHER TOLD ME, IF

YOU'RE BLIND, YOU WILL STOP

GOING TO CHURCH.

SHE PUSHED ME TO THE GROUND

AND TRIED TO STICK THE

NEEDLE INTO MY EYES.

I MOVED AND THE NEEDLE HIT

MY EAR.

Reporter: SHE ESCAPED

FROM THE JUNGLE, WHERE SHE

NOW LIVES WITH A FRIEND.

CHRISTIANS NOT ONLY COME

UNDER ATTACK FROM CO-WORKERS

AND FAMILY WORKERS, BUT

CHURCHES COME UNDER FIRE

FROM MAOISTS AND HINDU

MILITANTS.

ONE CASE IN POINT IS THIS

CHURCH IN SOUTHWESTERN

NEPAL.

GOOD TO SEE YOU, PASTOR.

GOOD TO BE WITH YOU.

LET'S SIT DOWN AND HAVE YOU

TELL ME WHAT'S GOING ON HERE

IN THE CHURCH.

NON-BELIEVERS CAME TO OUR

CHURCH AND DEMANDED THAT WE

JOINED THEIR FESTIVAL AND

WORSHIP IDOLS.

WE TOLD THEM WE DON'T

WORSHIP LIKE THIS.

Reporter: THE

CHRISTIANS REFUSED TO HELP

FUND THE HINDU FESTIVALS.

WHEN WE DIDN'T PAY THE

MONEY, THEY CAME AND

ATTACKED US AND TOOK OUR

LIVESTOCK.

I WAS RIGHT IN THIS PLACE,

230 VILLAGERS WITH STICKS

CAME HERE AND TOOK THE TWO

OXEN I KEPT RIGHT IN HERE.

SUFFERING IS NO SURPRISE TO

US.

MATTHEW 5: 12 SAYS: "IN MY

NAME YOU WILL BE PERSECUTED

AND YOU WILL BE HATED."

Reporter: AND NEPALI

CHRISTIANS ARE ALSO

DISRESPEC RESPECTED IN

DEATH.

THIS WAS THE ONLY CEMETERY

IN ALL OF KATHMANDU.

CHRISTIANS REPORT MILITANTS

OFTEN FORCE THEM TO DIG UP

THE BURIED REMAINS OF LOVED

ONES.

ONE CHRISTIAN WOMAN

REPORTEDLY KEPT HER DECEASED

HUSBAND'S BODY IN HER HOME

BECAUSE SHE WAS PREVENTED

FROM BURYING HIM.

THIS WOMAN HID CHURCH

MEMBERS IN HER HOUSE, AND A

MOB ATTACKED THEM.

SO WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD

FOR NEPALI CHRISTIANS?

THIS PASTOR SAYS HIS CHURCH

WILL STAND FIRM.

WE WANT TO KEEP THE

WITNESS OF GOD IN THIS PLACE

AND IMPROVE THE CHURCH.

OUR MAIN PURPOSE IS TO

INFLUENCE ALL OF THE

VILLAGERS.

Reporter: AND GOD IS

WORKING IN THE HEART OF

MR. CHOWEDRY, THE MAN WHO

LOST HIS OXEN.

WE ARE SONS AND DAUGHTERS

OF GOD.

WHATEVER THE VILLAGERS TOOK

FROM US BELONG TO HIM.

WE SHOULD BE SATISFIED WITH

HIS WORD.

Reporter: AND WHAT

ABOUT SARATA?

SHE AND HER AUNT LED HER

COUSIN TO CHRIST.

I TOLD HER, IF YOU FIND

GOD, THEN YOU WILL KNOW HOW

WONDERFUL HE IS AND YOU WILL

KNOW GOD'S PLAN FOR YOUR

LIFE.

Reporter: AND NOW HUMA

SAYS SHE WANTS TO SHARE THE

GOOD NEWS.

AFTER I FINISH MY

EDUCATION, I WANT TO SHARE

JESUS WITH THOSE WHO DO NOT

KNOW HIM.

I WILL WALK WITH HIM AND

SHARE THE GOSPEL.

EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE OFFER

MANY ANIMALS FOR SACRIFICE,

THEY WILL NOT BE FORGIVEN.

ONLY CHRIST'S BLOOD CAN BE

BRING FORGIVENESS FOR OUR

SINS.

I NOW KNOW THAT IS TOT THE

NOT THE END.

GOD HAS BROUGHT ME FROM

DARKNESS TO LIGHT.

Reporter: ETERNAL HOPE

AND VISION AT THE TOP OF THE

WORLD.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS,

KATHMANDU, NEPAL.

Wendy: UP NEXT,

CELEBRATING RESURRECTION

SUNDAY IN THE HOLY LAND.

CATH MANHATTAN

Wendy: THE WORLD'S MORE

THAN ONE BILLION CHRISTIANS

CELEBRATED THE RESURRECTION

OF JESUS CHRIST SUNDAY.

PILGRIMS FROM ALL OVER

VISITED THE GARDEN TOMB IN

JERUSALEM FOR THE ANNUAL

SUNRISE SERVICE.

SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE THE

GARDEN IS WHERE JESUS WAS

BURIED AND ROSE AGAIN FROM

THE GRAVE.

RICO TISE FROM ALL SOULS

CHURCH IN LONDON HAD THE

CENTRAL QUESTION FOLLOWING

THAT FIRST EASTER.

MY QUESTION IS THIS: IS

YOUR LIFE ON THIS FOUNDATION

THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS

CHRIST?

BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT MEANS I

PUT MY ARMS AROUND LOVED

ONES AGAIN.

THAT IS WHAT MEANS I SEE

JESUS CHRIST.

THAT IS WHAT MEANS I'M

FORGIVEN.

THAT IS WHAT MEANS I GET A

NEW RESURRECTION BODY.

THAT IS WHAT MEANS THAT

JESUS IS ALIVE.

IS YOUR FAITH HERE?

BECAUSE THIS IS THE ONLY

SURE FOUNDATION IN THE

WORLD.

Wendy: HE IS RISEN

INDEED.

CBN LIVE STREAMS THE SUNRISE

SERVICE AND IF YOU'D LIKE TO
