Mark: TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH," VIDEO OF THE

KIDNAPPED NIGERIAN SCHOOL

GIRLS FROM BOKO HARAM, WITH

HUGE DEMANDS FOR THEIR

RELEASE.

PLUS, UNBELIEVABLE

WEATHER EXTREMES CAUSE

DAMAGE ACROSS THE U.S.

Mark: AND A DIFFERENT

KIND OF CONTROVERSY SWIRLS

AROUND THIS YEAR'S NFL

DRAFT.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT

ON "NEWSWATCH."

THE TERRORIST GROUP

RELEASES THE FIRST VIDEO OF

THE GIRLS SINCE THEIR

KIDNAPPING.

GOOD EVENING, I'M LORI

JOHNSON.

Mark: AND I'M MARK

MARTIN.

Lori: IT SHOWS THE

GIRLS COVERED AND PRAYING.

Mark: MEANWHILE, HERE

IN THE U.S., THE POLITICAL

DEBATE OVER THEIR KIDNAPPING

HEATS UP.

GARY LANE HAS MORE ON THE

VIDEO, BOKO HARAM'S DEMANDS,

AND THE DEBATE SURROUNDING

IT ALL IN TONIGHT'S TOP

STORY.

Reporter: THESE ARE

SOME OF THE FIRST IMAGES OF

THE NIGERIAN SCHOOL GIRLS

SINCE THEY WERE KIDNAPPED

NEARLY A MONTH AGO.

THIS VIDEO, RELEASED BY THE

BOKO HARAM, SHOWS AROUND 100

OF THE GIRLS WEARING BURQAS,

READING THE QURAN, AND

RECITING MUSLIM PRAYERS.

THE LEADER OF BOKO HARAM IS

SEEN HER BRAGGING, SAYING

THAT THE KIDNAPPED GIRLS

HAVE BEEN LIBERATED.

AND THESE GIRLS HAVE BECOME

MUSLIMS, HE SAYS, AND THE

TERROR LEADER HAD A MESSAGE,

THE GIRLS COULD BE RELEASED

IN EXCHANGED FOR CAPTURED

BOKO HARAM TERRORISTS.

BUT THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT

SAYS IT WILL NOT PAY FOR THE

GIRLS' RELEASE.

THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT

HAS NO WAY TO PAY FOR THE

RELEASE OF THE GIRLS.

Reporter: DEMONSTRATORS

GOT TOGETHER IN NIGERIA'S

CAPITAL, DEMANDING THAT THE

GOVERNMENT DO MORE.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO

AGITATE UNTIL THIS IS

RECTIFIED.

Reporter: MICHELLE

OBAMA ADDED HER VOICE TO THE

GROWING MOVEMENT.

IN THESE GIRLS, BARACK

AND I SEE OUR OWN

DAUGHTERSS.

Reporter: BUT SOME ARE

ASKING WHY IT TOOK THE WORLD

THREE WEEKS TO CARE ABOUT

THE GIRLS, UNTIL THE START

OF THE BENGHAZI HEARINGS IN

CONGRESS, AND WHY THE LEFT

DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THE SONS

AND HUSBANDS LEFT BEHIND.

AND GEORGE WILL

ARE THESE BARBARIANS IN

THE WILD OF THE NIGERIA

SUPPOSED TO CHECK THEIR

TWITTER ACCOUNTS AND SAY,

UH-OH, MICHELLE OBAMA IS

ANGRY WITH US.

THIS IS NOT INTENDED TO HAVE

ANY EFFECT ON THE REAL

WORLD.

Reporter: JUST A YEAR

AGO, THE NIGERIAN TOLD THE

NIGERIA MILITARY TO BACK

OFF, WHEN IT WAS HITTING

BOKO HARAM HARD, EVEN URGING

THEM TO BUILD MORE MOSQUES

TO PLACATE THE TERRORISTS.

AND NOW IT LOOKS AS IF U.S.

FOREIGN POLICY IS BEING

DICTATED BY A SOCIAL MEDIA

CAMPAIGN.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Lori: SOME WILD WEATHER

MADE FOR A MESSY MOTHER'S

DAY ACROSS THE WEST AND

MIDWEST, AND IT TURNED FATAL

IN DENVER, WHERE IT IS TO

BLAMED FOR AT LEAST ONE

DEATH.

RESIDENTS ARE CLEANING UP

AFTER SPRINGTIME SNOWSTORMS

IN ONE AREA, AND DESTRUCTIVE

TORNADOES IN ANOTHER.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM REPORTS ON

THE EXTREME WEATHER.

Reporter: THIS DOESN'T

LOOK LIKE SPRING.

POWERFUL SNOWSTORMS DUMPING

MORE THAN A FOOT OF SLOPPY

SNOW ACROSS COLORADO AND

WYOMING, AND UNLEASHING

HAVOC ON HIGHWAYS IN UTAH.

TODAY DOZENS OF SNOWPLOWS

ARE OUT IN DENVER, FIGHTING

BACK AT THE STORM

CONTINUES.

THE MIDWEST SAW AN EVEN MORE

DANGEROUS MOTHER'S DAY

WEEKEND, WITH AT LEAST 11

TORNADOES TOUCHING DOWN IN

NEBRASKA, KANSAS, AND

MISSOURI.

ONE OF THEM LEVELLED

SMALL-TOWN ORRICK, MISSOURI,

WHERE RESIDENTS HAVEN'T SEEN

A TWISTER IN MORE THAN A

HALF CENTURY.

ORRICK HAS BEEN BLESSED

FOR MANY YEARS.

I GUESS IT IS OUR TURN.

IT HAS BEEN A SHOCK.

WHEN THIS HAPPENS, YOU DON'T

EXPECT IT TO HAPPEN TO YOU.

Reporter: OTHER PARTS

OF THE COUNTRY ARE

EXPERIENCING A BIT OF A

HEATWAVE, BUT EVEN THAT IS

INTENSE FOR SOME, LIKE

CALIFORNIA, WHERE THE WARMTH

IS ALSO BRINGING POWERFUL,

DAMAGING WINDS THAT TOPPLED

TREES AND CRUSHED CARS.

THE ANGER AND THEN THE

CRYING, AND THEN NOW IT'S,

WE'RE BLESSED BECAUSE WE

HAVE GOOD HOMEOWNERS

INSURANCE AND GOOD CAR

INSURANCE.

Reporter: TEMPERATURES

EXPECTED TO BE SWELTERING

ACROSS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA,

AND COULD REACH NEAR TRIPLE

DIGITS THIS WEEK.

BUT THAT, ALONG WITH

WHIPPING WINDS AND DRY

CONDITIONS ARE CREATING A

HIGH FIRE DANGER.

Lori: AND WHILE THE

HEAT CONTINUES IN

CALIFORNIA, AND THE

SNOWSTORMS IN COLORADO, IN

THE MIDWEST, LARGE HAIL AND

STRONG WINDS ARE EXPECTED IN

KANSAS, AND MORE WARNINGS

AND WATCHES WERE ISSUED

EARLIER TODAY FOR PARTS OF

OKLAHOMA AND ARKANSAS.

Mark: AN ESTIMATED 75

CONFIRMED TORNADOES RAVAGED

SOUTHERN STATES TWO WEEKS

AGO.

LOUISVILLE, MISSISSIPPI WAS

ONE OF THE HARDEST HIT.

HUNDREDS ARE STRUGGLING TO

PUT THEIR HOMES AND LIVES

BACK TOGETHER, AND THEY'VE

BEEN GETTING A LITTLE BIT OF

HELP FROM A MINISTRY THAT

FILLS HEARTS AND STOMACHS.

Reporter: 185

MILE-AN-HOUR WINDS SWEPT

THROUGH COMMUNITIES,

DEMOLISHING EVERYTHING IN

THEIR PATHS, AND KILLING 14

PEOPLE.

INCLUDING 8-YEAR-OLD TYLER

TUCKER.

HIS PARENTS' BODIES WERE

FOUND BLOWN INTO A WOODED

AREA HALF A MILE FROM THEIR

HOME.

ENTIRE COMMUNITIES ARE

GRIEVING.

IT IS LIKE A WAR ZONE.

EVERYTHING IS GONE.

IT MAKES YOU REALIZE WHAT'S

IMPORTANT.

Reporter: BUT IN THEIR

DARKEST HOUR, HOPE IS

SHINING THROUGH IN THE LOVE

AND COMPASSION SHOWN BY

MERCY CHEFS AND THE LOCAL

CHURCH.

THIS IS WHAT FAITH IN

ACTION LOOKS LIKE.

Reporter: SINCE THE

TORNADOES HIT, MERCY CHEFS

HAS FED THOUSANDS OF MEALS

TO RESIDENTS OF LOUISVILLE,

AND THEY JUST BROUGHT IN

RESOURCES TO STAFF ANOTHER

FEEDING SITE AT EAST

LOUISVILLE BAPTISTS CHURCH.

THIS GIVES US A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN WITH

THESE OTHER SERVANTS, WHO

HAVE COME FROM SO FAR AWAY.

THESE PEOPLE ARE SO

AMAZING.

THEIR CONCERN, EVEN IN THEIR

LOSS, IS ABOUT THEIR

NEIGHBOURS' LOSS.

THEY'RE REALLY TRYING TO

HELP AND TO BE PROACTIVE AND

MOVE FORWARD.

Reporter: MERCY CHEFS

PLANS TO STAY AS LONG AS

THERE IS A NEED, TO FEED

THOSE DEVASTATED BY THE

DISASTER.

IT IS JUST AN AMAZING

THING, TO SEE THE STRENGTH

OF RURAL AMERICA.

Reporter: THAT'S THE

UNBREAKABLE SPIRIT OF A

COMMUNITY, COMMITTED TO EACH

OTHER IN THE HARDEST OF

TIMES.

Lori: THE HIGHEST COURT

IN MASSACHUSETTS UNANIMOUSLY

VOTED TO PROTECT THE PHRASE

"UNDER GOD," IN THE PLEDGE

OF ALLEGIANCE.

A SPOKESMAN SAID THE COURT

AFFIRMED WHAT SHOULD HAVE

BEEN OBVIOUS, GOD IS NOT A

DIRTY WORD.

THE AMERICAN HUMANIST

ASSOCIATION HAD SUED TO

OVERTURN THE PLEDGE, ARGUING

THAT THE WORDS WERE

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

SCHOOL CHILDREN AND THEIR

PARENTS DEFENDED THE PHRASE

AGAINST THE ATHEIST GROUP.

THIS IS THE FOURTH TIME THE

BECKETT LAW FORM HAS

DEFENDED THE PHRASE IN COURT

AND WON.

BOB GYBOBBY JINDAL SAYS

CHRISTIANS MUST WORK HARDER

THAN EVER TO PROTECT THEM

BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.

HE GAVE AN EXAMPLE OF THE

SUPPRESSION OF CHRISTIAN

VALUES.

WE'VE ESTABLISHED THAT

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS IS

ON THE RISE THROUGHOUT THE

WORLD.

WE'VE ESTABLISHED THE

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY HERE IN

AMERICA IS UNDER SEIZE.

WE ESTABLISHED THAT THE LEFT

NO LONGER WANTS TO DEBATE.

THEY SIMPLY WANT TO SILENCE

US.

Reporter: JINDAL

REMINDED THE GRADUATES THAT

WHILE THERE IS INTENSE

PRESSURE TO MINIMIZE THE

CHRISTIAN VIEWPOINT IN

MEDIA, GOVERNMENT, AND

BUSINESS, THE POWER OF GOD

IS EVEN GREATER.

Mark: AMEN TO THAT.

IN OTHER NEWS, THE ARKANSAS

ATTORNEY-GENERAL IS GOING TO

APPEAL A COUNTY JUDGE'S

RULING THAT OVERTURNED THE

STATE'S GAY MARRIAGE BAN.

IN 2004 VOTERS APPROVED A

STATE CONSTITUTIONAL

MARRIAGE AMENDMENT.

LAST WEEK JUDGE CHRIS PIAZZA

OVERTURNED THE BAN.

ONE CLERK SAID ONLY THE

STATE SUPREME COURT CAN

STRIKE DOWN A STATE LAW, AND

SHE WILL NOT ISSUE LICENSES

UNTIL THAT HAPPENS.

15 GAY MARRIAGE LICENSES,

HOWEVER, WERE ISSUED IN ONE

COUNTY.

MICHAEL SAM, THE FIRST

OPENLY GAY PLAYER DRAFTED BY

A PRO FOOTBALL TEAM, IS

HEADED TO ST. LOUIS.

HE WAS DRAFTED BY THE RAMS

IN THE SEVENTH ROUND, AND

THE 249th PICK OVERALL.

HE WAS A SUCCESSFUL

DEFENSIVE END AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI, BUT

HE COULD STRUGGLE

TRANSITIONING TO THE NFL AND

THE MEDIA CIRCUS SURROUNDING

HIM.

THEY SAY HE WILL BE JUDGED

SOLELY ON HIS ABILITY TO

PLAY FOOTBALL.

Lori: SAM STOLE THE

SHOW, DESPITE NOT EVEN BEING

A TOP PICK, FOR ALL OF THE

MEDIA ATTENTION, NOT FOR HIS

SKILL, BUT FOR HIS

SEXUALITY.

HERE IS MATT BARBER WITH

LIBERTY COUNCIL.

THANKS FOR JOINING US.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME.

Lori: THE COVERAGE WAS

ALREADY CRAZY, BUT WENT OVER

THE TOP WHEN SAM KISSED HIS

BOYFRIEND ON NATIONAL

TELEVISION.

DOES THIS SURPRISE YOU?

YOU KNOW, IT'S JUST SUCH

A SHAME TO SEE ONE OF THE

LAST STANDING MERITOCRASIES

IN PROFESSIONAL SPORTS COME

CRUMBLING DOWN UNDER THE

WEIGHT AND PRESSURE OF

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

MR. SAM, ALTHOUGH I'M SURE

HE IS A NICE FELLOW AND A

DECENT ATHLETE, BUT MOST

ACCOUNTS HE IS VERY SMALL

FOR A LINEBACKER, AND MAY

VERY WELL NOT HAVE EVEN BEEN

PICKED AT NUMBER 249, AS HE

WAS, BUT FOR HIS

PRONOUNCEMENT THAT HE IS

SEXUALLY ATTRACTED TO OTHER

MEN.

SO THAT, OF COURSE, HAS

BECOME THE STORY HERE.

AND HAS TAKEN AWAY FROM THE

TOP PICKS AND THE GAME

ITSELF, AND IT HAS PUT ALL

OF THE FOCUS ON HOMOSEXUAL

BEHAVIOR.

AND, QUITE NATURALLY, A

NUMBER OF NFL PLAYERS HAVE

REACTED IN A NEGATIVE WAY.

AND WITH THIS OVER-THE-TOP

KISS ON NATIONAL TELEVISION,

EVEN ONE MIAMI DOLPHIN,

MR. DON JONES, HAS NOW BEEN

FINED AND PENALIZED AND WILL

BE FORCED TO UNDERGO

BRAINWASHING TRAINING,

SENSITIVITY TRAINING,

BECAUSE HE TWEETED OUT THE

WORD "HORRIBLE" AFTER THE

KISS.

AND PEOPLE CAN NATURALLY SEE

DISORDERED BEHAVIOR LIKE

THAT, OF TWO MEN KISSING ON

NATIONAL TELEVISION, AND

RESPOND WITH A VISCERAL

RESPONSE.

Lori: AS ANOTHER

EXAMPLE, DERRICK WARD

TWEETED A COMMENT,

CRITICIZING SAM AND THE

COVERAGE, AND NOW HE IS

GETTING DEATH THREATS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT

THAT?

WE ARE ENTERING AN AGE

WHERE THERE IS A NEW LEFTEST

FASCISM THAT WE'RE SEEING

TAKE PLACE.

IT IS WHAT WE SAW HAPPENING

IN BRENDON IKE, WITH THE

VENOM BROTHERS WITH HGTV.

THIS IS A ZERO SOMETHING

GAME.

PEOPLE WHO HOLD BIBLICAL

VALUES AND THE BIBLICAL

MODEL OF SEXUALITY, THAT

SAYS SEXUAL BEHAVIOR IS ONLY

MORALE WHEN IT IS WITHIN THE

BONDS OF MARRIAGE BETWEEN A

MAN AND A WOMAN.

THEY ARE BEING DRIVEN TO THE

PERIPHERY, AND MARGINALIZED

IN SUCH A WAY THAT PEOPLE

CANNOT EVEN SPEAK PUBLICLY

ABOUT HOLDING BIBLICAL

VIEWS, TRADITIONAL VALUES,

RELATIVE TO SEXUAL

MORALITY.

AND, AGAIN, THIS IS FASCISM

RUN AMUCK IN THE UNITED

STATES.

IT SEEMS TO BE, FOR SOME

REASON, THIS HOMOSEXUAL

ACTIVIST AGENDA THAT IS AT

THE FOREFRONT IN TRYING TO

SILENCE ANY DESCENT ON THIS

PARTICULAR ISSUE.

Lori: ALL RIGHT.

MATT BARBER, THANKS SO MUCH

FOR YOUR TIME AND YOUR

THOUGHTS.

ALWAYS A PLEASURE.

THANK YOU.

Mark: COMING UP, THE

WASHINGTON MONUMENT REOPENS

TO THE PUBLIC TODAY.

AND WE'LL SHOW YOU WHY IT

TOOK THREE YEARS TO REPAIR

IT AFTER EARTHQUAKE DAMAGE.

Lori: ONE OF AMERICA'S

MOST FAMOUS LANDMARKS

REOPENED TO THE PUBLIC

TODAY.

THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT HAS

BEEN CLOSED SINCE AUGUST OF

2011.

Mark: THAT'S WHEN AN

EARTHQUAKE ROCKED THE

CAPITAL AREA, CAUSING

PANICKED TOURISTS TO RUN

DOWN THE STAIRS OF THE

MONUMENT.

FOR NEARLY THREE YEARS,

CREWS HAVEINSPECTED

THOUSANDS OF STONES AND

REPAIRED DOZENS OF CRACKS.

A DRUM AND CHORE RESEMBLING

WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN GEORGE

WASHINGTON'S DAY, TOOK PART

IN THE OPENING CEREMONY OF

THE MONUMENT NAMED FOR OUR

FIRST PRESIDENT.

VISITORS CAN ONCE AGAIN GET

AN UPCLOSE LOOK OF THE

FAMOUS LANDMARK.

WE AGAIN WELCOME VISITORS

TO THIS ICONIC SYMBOL IN THE

NATION'S CAPITAL.

Mark: THE WASHINGTON

MONUMENT TOOK A LOT OF HITS

FROM A POWERFUL 5.8

MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE.

PEOPLE FELT THE EARTHQUAKE,

CENTERED IN VIRGINIA, ALL UP

AND DOWN THE EAST COAST.

PANICKED TOURISTS RACED DOWN

THE STAIRS, AND THE QUAKE

CAUSED THE LANDMARK TO CRACK

IN 150 PLACES.

CREWS WENT TO WORK, USING

THIS SCAFFOLDING TO TACKLE

THE TRICKY TASK OF MAKING

REPAIRS TO THE 555-FOOT TALL

STRUCTURE.

THERE WERE 30 PLUS GUYS

HANGING FROM SWINGS.

Mark: ENGINEERS HAD TO

ENSURE THE 36,000 STACKED

STONES, THREE DIFFERENT

TYPES OF MARBLE FITTED ON

TOP OF EACH OTHER WITHOUT

MORTER, WERE STRUCTURALLY

SOUND.

THE DILEMMA IS GETTING

500 FEET IN THE AIR, AND

ERECTING SCAFFOLDING.

Reporter: THE

RESTORATION OF THE

WASHINGTON MONUMENT COST

$15 MILLION.

TAXPAYERS PAID HALF, AND

THIS PHILANTHROPIST PAID THE

OTHER HALF.

THE MONUMENT USUALLY GETS

700,000 VISITORS A YEAR.

AFTER OPENING UP FOR

TICKETS, A NATIONAL PARKS

SPOKESPERSON SAID THEY SOLD

16,000 IN THE FIRST 15

MINUTES.

Lori: ALSO IN

WASHINGTON, D.C., HONORING

MILITARY MOMS AT THE WHITE

HOUSE TODAY.

Mark: PLUS A

FAITH-BASED MOVIE ABOUT

MOMS.

IT SCORES BIG AT THE BOX

OFFICE.

WE'LL HEAR FROM THE ACTORS

ABOUT THEIR INSPIRATION FOR

THE STORY WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Lori: AMERICANS

EVERYWHERE SPENT YESTERDAY

CELEBRATING MOM FOR MOTHER'S

DAY.

AT THE WHITE HOUSE, FIRST

LADY MICHELLE OBAMA SPENT

TODAY HONORING MILITARY

MOMS.

THE FIRST LADY AND DR. JILL

BIDEN HOSTED THE ANNUAL

MOTHER'S DAY TEA.

THE GROUP WAS MADE UP OF

MOMS ACTIVELY SERVING, AS

WELL AS MILITARY WIVES.

EVEN WITH HUSBANDS

DEPLOYED AND THINGS GOING

ON, YOU'RE STILL DRIVING THE

CAR-POOL, VOLUNTEERING,

LEADING THE NEIGHBORHOOD

ORGANIZATIONS AND WORKING

WITH YOUR CONGREGATIONS TO

DO CARE PACKAGES FOR OTHER

PEOPLE.

NO MATTER WHAT YOUR COUNTRY

ASKS OF YOU AND YOUR FAMILY,

YOU'RE THE ONES WHO STEP UP

AND SERVE, AND YOU DO IT

WITH GRACE, WITH DIGNITY,

AND WITHOUT COMPLAINT.

Reporter: DR. JILL

BIDEN IS A MILITARY MOM

HERSELF AND SAYS SHE FEELS A

SPECIAL BOND WITH FELLOW

MILITARY MOMS.

THE MOTHERS AND CHILDREN

SPENT THE DAY DURING ARTS

AND CRAFTS AND WERE TREATED

TO A MUSICAL PERFORMANCE

FROM SINGER NORA JONES.

Mark: "MOMS' NIGHT OUT"

CAME IN SECOND THIS WEEKEND,

AND IT IS A COMEDY ABOUT THE

JOYS AND PROBLEMS OF BEING A

PARENT.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: IN "MOMS'

NIGHT OUT," EL FENFENT AND

HER FRIENDS LONG FOR AN

EVENING OUT WITH ADULT

CONVERSATION.

BUT THEY NEED THEIR HUSBANDS

TO WATCH THE KIDS FOR A FEW

HOURS.

WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

WELL, JUST ABOUT

EVERYTHING.

FOR GREY'S ANATOMY STAR,

SARAH RUE, PLAYING A

STRESSED OUT MOM IN NEED OF

A BREAK WASN'T A REACH.

IT'S HILARIOUS BECAUSE

YOU'RE GOING, I JUST HAD

THAT CONVERSATION, LITERALLY

TWO NIGHTS AGO, WITH MY

HUSBAND.

EXACTLY LIKE THAT.

AND WHAT IS WONDERFUL IS

THAT WE'RE ABLE TO LAUGH AT

OURSELVES.

Reporter: THE MESSAGE

IS ABOUT AFFIRMING AND

CELEBRATING MOMS FOR WHO

THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY DO.

IT IS A MESSAGE THAT COMES

ACROSS WITH LOTS OF LAUGHTER

AND HEART.

BROTHERS JOHN AND ANDREW

IRWIN DIRECTED THE

FAMILY-FRIENDLY COMEDY, A

BREAK AWAY FROM THEIR

PRO-LIFE FILM, "OCTOBER

BABY."

I WANTED SOMETHING

RELATABLE, AND THEN PUTTING

A LAYER OF HYSTERIA ON TOP

OF THAT WAS A REAL TREAT.

EVERY MINUTE YOU SPEND

WITH YOUR CHILD, EVEN IF

THEY'RE THROWING A FIT, OR

THEY'RE WRITING ON THE WALL,

IT'S BEAUTIFUL AND IT IS

WORTH IT.

THAT'S WHAT WE WANT THE

AUDIENCE TO TAKE AWAY.

Reporter: ACTRESS

ANDREA LOGAN CAME UP WITH

THE IDEA FOR THE FILM AFTER

BECOMING A NEW MOM.

THE GIFT OF BEING A

MOTHER IS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN

US THIS, AND HE HAS TRUSTED

US TO TAKE CARE OF THESE

LITTLE SOULS THAT YOU CAN'T

WALK AWAY FROM.

IT IS SUCH A LESSON OF

SELFLESSNESS, AND KNOWING

THAT THE FRUIT WILL

EVENTUALLY SHOW AND RIPEN.

Reporter: KEVIN AND

ALEX, OF "COURAGEOUS" FAME

ARE ALSO PART OF THE CAST.

PARENTHOOD, THERE ARE A

LOT OF FUNNY THINGS.

MY KIDS WILL SAY THINGS THAT

I THINK ARE HYSTERICAL.

AND THAT'S A LOT OF WHAT'S

IN "MOMS' NIGHT OUT."

MEN WILL SEE CHARACTERS

IN THIS MOVIE AND SAY, I'M

ASHAMED TO SAY I'VE DONE

THAT, AND I NEED TO DO MORE

OF THAT.

SO THERE ARE SOME GREAT

EXAMPLES OF WHAT TO DO AND

WHATNOT TO DO.

Reporter: WE KNOW

PATRICIA HEATON FROM

"EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND."

IN THIS TIME, SHE TAKES THE

ROLE OF A PASTOR'S WIFE.

WHAT WAS INTERESTING

ABOUT THIS WAS THAT THE

OTHER GALS IN THE MOVIE, THE

YOUNGER MOMS, LOOK UP TO HER

AND THINK SHE HAS IT ALL

TOGETHER.

AND SHE SAYS, IT'S NOT

REALLY THAT WAY.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT

ANYBODY HAS EVER INVITED ME

OUT TO DO A NIGHT LIKE

THIS.

I THOUGHT THAT WAS SO

TOUCHING.

I HAD REALLY NEVER THOUGHT

ABOUT PASTORS' WIVES IN THAT

WAY.

Reporter: "MOMS' NIGHT

OUT" ALSO SHOWS THE

IMPORTANCE OF MOMMY-DADDY

TIME.

SEAN ASHTON IS KNOWN FOR HIS

ROLE IN THE "LORD OF THE

RINGS" TRILOGY.

I PLAY THE HUSBAND WHO,

DESPITE HIS BEST EFFORTS TO

BE THOUGHTFUL AND MINDFUL OF

HIS WIFE'S NEEDS, COMES UP A

LITTLE SHORT SOMETIMES, AS

MANY FATHERS DO.

Reporter: "MOMS' NIGHT

OUT" IS FILLED WITH LOVE,

LAUGHTER, AND FAITH, AS IT

CELEBRATES THE BEAUTIFUL

MESS CALLED PARENTING.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS,

BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA.

Lori: IT IS HER FIRST

PROM, AND SHE IS MORE THAN

90 YEARS OLD.

YOU'VE GOT TO HEAR THIS

STORY, UP NEXT.

Lori: IT WAS A NIGHT

DECADES IN THE MAKING, A

SURPRISE PROM ORGANIZED IN

HONOR OF ONE SPECIAL LADY.

Mark: 91-YEAR-OLD EDNA

LAMPING HAD NEVER BEEN TO

PROM.

HER GRANDDAUGHTER AND

DAUGHTER SECRETLY WORKED IT

OUT WITH A NEARBY HIGH

SCHOOL, AND THIS YEAR EDNA

WENT TO HER VERY FIRST

PROM.

DANCING IS A LITTLE

DIFFERENT NOW THAN IT USED

TO BE.

WE USED TO DANCE FRIDAY,

SATURDAY, AND SUNDAY, BUT

NOT ANYMORE BECAUSE THE LEGS

DON'T CARRY US.

NOW THEY JUST STAND IN ONE

PLACE AND SHAKE IT.

I THINK I BROUGHT THE

BEST LOOKING GIRL HERE.

Mark: STAND IN ONE

PLACE AND SHAKE IT.

SHE'S A HOOT.

THEY SHOWED THE HIGH

SCHOOLERS HOW IT IS REALLY

DONE.

AFTER ALMOST 70 YEARS OF

WAITING, EDNA WAS CLEARLY

THE BELL OF THE BALL.

Lori: I WANT TOSEE

MORE OF HERHUSBAND.

IF SHE IS 91, HOW OLD IS

HE?

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."

HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.
