TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

AS MILITANT ISLAMISTS MARCH

ON BAGHDAD, THE IRAQI

GOVERNMENT CALLS ON ITS

PEOPLE TO FIGHT FOR THEIR

COUNTRY.

Wendy: PLUS, THE ARMY

SERGEANT AT THE CENTER OF

THE SOLDIER SWAP CONTROVERSY

IS BACK ON AMERICAN SOIL.

WHAT IS NEXT FOR BOWE

BERGDAHL.

Mark: AND SOUL SURFER

BETHANY HAMILTON TALKS ABOUT

THE DEFINITION AND SOURCE OF

TRUE BEAUTY.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT

ON "NEWSWATCH."

Wendy: GOOD EVENING,

EVERYONE, I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

Mark: AND I'M MARK

MARTIN.

MEMBERS OF AN EXTREME

ISLAMIC GROUP ARE POISED TO

MARCH ON BAGHDAD.

ISIS IS REPORTEDLY 30 MILES

FROM IRAQ'S CAPITAL.

THIS COMES AFTER IRAQI

GOVERNMENT IS URGING

CITIZENS TO TAKE UP ARMS AND

DEFEND THE COUNTRY.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS MORE.

Reporter: HOURS AFTER

SEIZING THE ANCIENT BIBLICAL

CITY OF NINEVEH, ISLAMIC

INSURGENTS RELEASED THIS

CHILLING TWO-PAGE DOCUMENT,

ORDERING ALL CHRISTIANS TO

COMPLY WITH SHARI'A LAWS.

AMONG THEM, WOMEN SHOULD

DRESS DECENTLY AND NO DRUGS

OR ALCOHOL, AND ANYONE FOUND

STEALING WILL HAVE THEIR

HANDS CHOPPED OFF.

THE CHRISTIANS OF IRAQ

ARE THE CALDEANS OF IRAQ,

AND WE'RE BEING ETHNICALLY

CLEANSED.

George: AND MILITANTS

ARE CAPTURING TOWNS WITH

LITTLE RESISTANCE.

THE VIDEO SHOWS THOUSANDS OF

IRAQI SOLDIERS AND POLICE IN

TIKRIT WITH THEIR HANDS ON

THEIR HEADS.

OVERNIGHT INSURGENTS, SOME

OF WHOM FEEL ALIENATED BY

IRAQ'S SHIITE-LED

GOVERNMENT, GAINED MORE

TERRITORY, GATHERING TWO

MORE EASTERN TOWNS.

YOU CAN'T HAVE A MILITARY

FIX FOR THIS SORT OF PROBLEM.

IT IS FUNDAMENTALLY A

POLITICAL PROBLEM.

AND SUNNIS, IN PARTICULAR,

FEEL TOTALLY CUT OFF AND

DISENFRANCHISED, TO THE

POINT WHERE MANY SUNNIS,

INCLUDING SECULAR GROUPS,

AND COOPERATING WITH

AL-QAEDA.

Reporter: JOHN BOEHNER

CRITICIZED OBAMA'S

ADMINISTRATION.

IT ISN'T LIKE WE HAVEN'T

SEEN THESE TERRORISTS MOVING

IN, TAKING CONTROL OVER

IRAQ.

AND WHAT'S THE PRESIDENT

DOING?

TAKING A NAP.

George: THE WHITE HOUSE

SHOT BACK, SAYING IT IS

LOOKING INTO ALL OPTIONS,

INCLUDING MILITARY STRIKES.

President Obama: MY

TEAM IS WORKING AROUND THE

CLOCK TO IDENTIFY HOW WE CAN

PROVIDE THE MOST EFFECTIVE

ASSISTANCE TO THEM.

George: MEANWHILE, THE

MILITANTS ARE CAPTURING HUGE

STOCKPILES OF WEAPONS,? O

INCLUDING THOUSANDS OF

AK-47s, ROCKETS AND

ARTILLERY.

IRAQ'S NEIGHBOR, IRAN, IS

REPORTEDLY SENDING SHI'A

FORCES TO QUELL THE

UPRISING.

WE WON'T TOLERATE THIS

VIOLENCE IN IRAQ, AND IN

TURN, WE WILL FIGHT VIOLENCE

EXTREMISM AND TERRORISM IN

THE REASON.

George: MORE THAN

300,000 PEOPLE HAVE FLED

PARTS OF NORTHERN IRAQ IN

THE PAST WEEK.

MEANWHILE, IRAQ'S KURDS ARE

ALSO JOINING THE FRAY.

MOVING QUICKLY TO SEIZE THE

STRATEGIC OIL TOWN OF

KIRKUT.

AND ALL OF THIS HAS ANALYSTS

TALKING ABOUT THE POTENTIAL

BREAK UP OF IRAQ.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THE PARENTS OF

ARMY SERGEANT BOWE BERGDAHL

SAY THEY ARE OVERJOYED AT

THE RETURN OF THEIR SON.

HE WAS CAPTURED BY THE

TALIBAN IN 2009.

HE ARRIVED EARLY THIS

MORNING AT BROOK ARMY

MEDICAL CENTER IN SAN

ANTONIO, TEXAS.

HE GAINED FREEDOM LAST MONTH

IN A CONTROVERSIAL DEAL

STRUCK BY THE ANYBOD OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IN EXCHANGE

FOR FIVE SENIOR TALIBAN

LEADERS.

THE ARMY SAYS HE WILL

CONTINUE THE REINTEGRATION

PROCESS, WHICH WILL INCLUDE

REUNITING WITH HIS FAMILY.

THE FIEBLE OFFICIALS ARE

INVESTIGATING THE

CIRCUMSTANCES OF BERGDAHL'S

CAPTURE, AND WHETHER HE

WALKED AWAY OR DESERTED THE

ARMY.

THE FAMILY HAS ASKED FOR

PRIVACY AS THEY REUNITE WITH

HIM.

Mark: THE N.S.A. MAY

NOT BE THE ONLY AGENCY

COLLECTING YOUR CELL PHONE

DATA.

THE WHITE HOUSE IS NOW

TRYING TO HIDE THE USE OF

SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY TO

ACCESS PHONE DATA FROM

ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOODS.

AN ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORT

REVEALS THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION HAS

INTERVENED IN ROUTINE STATE

PUBLIC RECORDS CASES, AND

CRIMINAL TRIALS REGARDING

USE OF THE TECHNOLOGY.

THIS INTERFERENCE HAS LOCAL

POLICE DEPARTMENTS

WITHHOLDING PUBLICLY

REQUESTED MATERIALS OR

HEAVILY CENSORING THEM.

POLITICAL OBSERVERS SAY IT

IS UNUSUAL FOR THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT TO GET INVOLVED

IN LOCAL OPEN RECORDS

PROCEEDINGS.

Wendy: CATHOLIC GROUPS

IN MICHIGAN AND TENNESSEE

WILL NOT BE GRANTED AN

INJUNCTION EXEMPTING THEM

FROM THE CONTRACEPTION

MANDATES IN OBAMACARE.

A FEDERAL APPEALS COURT

RULED THAT ALL PLAINTIFFS

ARE ALREADY ELIGIBLE FOR AN

EXEMPTION FOR OR FOR AN

ACCOMMODATION.

IT ALLOWS EMPLOYEES TO

RECEIVE CONTRACEPTION

COVERAGE THAT IS PAID FOR

AND ADMINISTERED BY A THIRD

PARTY.

THE CATHOLIC GROUPS SAY

REGARDLESS, THE MANDATE

COULD MAKE THEM EXPLICIT IN

A GREAT MORAL LONG.

Mark: THE AMERICAN

CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE

IS ASKING THE SUPERIOR COURT

TO TAKE A CASE INVOLVING A

PRO-LIFE CENTER.

IT REPRESENTS TWO NON-PROFIT

GROUPS SUING NEW YORK CITY

OVER A LAW THAT TARGETS

PRO-RIGHTS.

THE LAW SAYS ANY

ADVERTISEMENT OR ANY

CONVERSATION WITH THE WOMAN

IN PERSON MUST INCLUDE THREE

LENGTHY DISCLAIMERS IN

ENGLISH AND SPANISH,

SOMETHING ABORTION CLINICS

ARE NOT REQUIRED TO DO.

THE GROUPS MUST FOLLOW THE

STRICT DISCLAIMERS OR FACE

STRICT FINES.

Wendy: OF THE BILLS

REQUIRES ALL DOCTORS WHO

POR PERFORM ABORTIONS TO

HAVE HOSPITAL PERMITTING

PRIVILEGES.

THE OTHER PREVENTS ABORTION

MATERIALS FROM BEING

DISTRIBUTED INSIDE PUBLIC OR

CHARTER SCHOOLS.

THE LEGISLATION COULD FORCE

THE CLOSURE OF SEVERAL

ABORTION CLINICS.

Mark: POLICE IN

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, ARE

INVESTIGATING AN ATTACK THAT

LEFT ONE PRIEST DEAD AND

ANOTHER SERIOUSLY INJURED.

AUTHORITIES ARE CALLING THE

INCIDENT A BURGLARY.

56-YEAR-OLD FATHER JOSEPH

TERRA IS HOSPITALIZED, IN

CRITICAL BUT STABLE

CONDITION.

HE WAS ABLE TO CALL 9-1-1

AND ADMINISTER LAST RIGHTS

TO FATHER KEN NI KENNETH

WALKER WAS FATALLY SHOT.

Wendy: DENMARK'S

PARLIAMENT HAS APPROVED A

NEW LAW THAT FORCES THE

COUNTRY'S CHURCHES TO

CONDUCT GAY MARRIAGES IF

ASKED.

UNDER THE NEW LAW, PRIESTS

MAINTAIN THE RIGHT TO REFUSE

TO OFFICIATE THE CEREMONY,

BUT THE LOCAL BISHOP MUST

ARRANGED A REPLACEMENT FOR

THEIR CHURCH.

DENMARK LEGALIZED GAY

MARRIAGE IN 2012.

THE FIRST CHURCH CONDUCTED

GAY MARRIAGES COULD TAKE

PLACE AS EARLY AS THIS

WEEKEND.

Mark: GOOD NEWS

TONIGHT'S FOR A CHRISTIAN

EVANGELIST ARRESTED IN

SCOTLAND, AFTER BEING

ACCUSED OF HOMOPHOBIC HATE

SPEECH.

HE WAS ARRESTED ON A

ONE-WEEK MISSIONS TRIP IN

JANUARY.

HOWEVER, MONTHS LATER, THEY

DECIDED TO DROP ALL

CHARGES.

FORMER LOS ANGELES DEPUTY

SHERIFF, TONY, SEEN TEACHING

HERE ON A STREET IN LONDON,

TOOK EARLY RETIREMENT TO

BECOME A FULL-TIME

EVANGELIST.

HE WAS ARRESTED AND ACCUSED

OF MAKING HOMOPHOBIC

COMMENTS.

THEY ASKED WHAT I WAS

PREACHING ABOUT AND IF I

TALKED ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY.

AND I SAID I DID.

THEY CONTINUED THEIR

INVESTIGATION, AND AT ABOUT

4:20 p.m. I WAS ARRESTED

FOR WHAT THEY TOLD ME WAS

HOMOPHOBIC HATE SPEECH.

Mark: FORTUNATELY

TONY'S ATTORNEY SECURED HIS

RELEASE WITH NO CHARGE.

AN INVESTIGATOR CAME INTO

HIS CELL IN LONDON WITH GOOD

NEWS.

WHAT HE SAID AMAZED ME,

AND I KNEW IT WAS THE HAND

OF GOD.

HE SAID THE INSPECTOR HAS

DECIDED TO RELEASE YOU WITH

NO FURTHER ACTION.

Mark: IN DUNDEE,

SCOTLAND, IT TOOK SEVERAL

MONTHS AFTER HIS ARREST, BUT

POLICE DROPPED ALL CHARGES

AS WELL.

THEY SAID THEY COULD SEE HIS

PREACHING ON VIDEO TO PROVE

HE HAD DONE NOTHING WRONG,

AND HIS MESSAGE WAS ONE OF

HOPE IN JESUS CHRIST.

HE SAYS AFTER WATCHING THE

VIDEO, PROSECUTORS FOUND

NOTHING IN HIS PREACHING

THAT CONSTITUTED HATE

SPEECH.

MIANO SAYS WHILE HE NO

LONGER FACES TRIAL, THE

MATTER IS NOT OVER BY ANY

MEANS.

HE SAYS HE IS SEEKING ADVICE

ON WHETHER TO PURSUE LEGAL

ACTION IN SCOTLAND'S CIVIL

COURTS AGAINST POLICE.

Wendy: JOHN KERRY IS

CONDEMNING THE IMPRISONMENT

OF MERIAM IBRAHIM.

SHE IS BEHIND BARS IN SUDAN

FOR NOT RECANTING HER

CHRISTIAN FAITH.

KERRY'S STATEMENT COMES ONE

DAY AFTER PROTESTORS TOOK TO

THE STREETS OUTSIDE THE

WHITE HOUSE TO DRAW

ATTENTION TO IBRAHIM'S

PLIGHT.

SHE IS BEHIND BARS FOR HER

FAITH, AND HER TODDLER SON

AND NEWBORN BABY ARE THERE

IN PRISON WITH HER.

KERRY ISSUED A STATE SAYING

THAT THE U.S. IS DEEPLY

CONCERNED ABOUT HER

IMPRISONMENT IN SUDAN,

WRITING "SHE AND THE

CHILDREN SHOULD BE REUNITED

AT HOME WITH HER FAMILY,

RATHER THAN BEING HELD IN

PRISON ON CHARGES OF

APOSTASY."

HE WENT ON TO SAY THAT THE

SUDANESE GOVERNMENT SHOULD

REPEAL ITS LAWS THAT GO

AGAINST UNIVERSAL HUMAN

RIGHTS.

Mark: BOOKS AND MOVIES

ABOUT HEAVEN AND HELL SHOULD

NOT BE YOUR SOURCE FOR THE

TRUTH OF THE AFTER LIFE.

THE SOUTHERN BAPTISTS

EXPRESSED CONCERN ABOUT

PEOPLE BUILDING THEIR IDEAS

ABOUT HEAVEN AND HELL

THROUGH ANYTHING THAN WHAT

IS TAUGHT IN SCRIPTURE.

THEY PASSED "THE HEAVEN IS

FOR REAL." SOUTHERN BAPTIST

LEADERS SAY PEOPLE CAN BE

LED ASTRAY BY POPULAR BOOKS

AND MOVIES THAT CONTAIN

PERSONAL TESTIMONIES THAT

CANNOT BE CORROBORATED AND

OFTEN CONFLICT WITH WHAT THE

BIBLE TEACHES.

Wendy: COMING UP, THEY

RISK THEIR LIVES JUST BY

GOING TO SCHOOL.

HOW "OPERATION BLESSING" IS

HELPING TO KEEP THEM SAFE.

Mark: PARTS OF NIGERIA

HAVE BEEN UNDER RELENTLESS

ATTACK BY BOKO HARAM.

A TERRORIST GROUP BENT ON

TURNING THE NATION WITH A

MAJORITY CHRISTIAN

POPULATION TO ISLAM.

Wendy: CBN'S "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS HAND-DELIVERING

RELIEF AND SUPPORT TO AT

LEAST 200 CHILDREN AT A

BOARDING SCHOOL IN THE

NORTHEASTERN PART OF

AFRICA.

THEIR SCHOOL WAS CLOSED

AFTER BOKO HARAM -- THERE

SCHOOL WAS CLOSED AFTER BOKO

HARAM CAPTURED NEARLY 300

SCHOOL GIRLS IN THE REGION.

CLASSES ARE NOW BACK IN

SESSION, AND "OPERATION

BLESSING'S" DAVID DARD

TRAVELLED THERE TO PROVIDE

FOOD, MOVIES, COMPUTERS,

BOOKS, AND EVEN RAZOR WIRE

FOR EXTRA SECURITY ON THEIR

CAMPUS.

IT IS ABOUT 45 MILES FROM

WHERE THE GIRLS ARE

KIDNAPPED, AND WHERE A BOKO

HARAM SUICIDE BOMBER

RECENTLY KILLED MORE THAN 40

PEOPLE.

THE GIRLS AT THIS SCHOOL HAD

MESSAGES FOR THOSE GIRLS WHO

ARE STILL BEING HELD

CAPTIVE.

COUNT ON GOD BECAUSE HE

IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN

MAKE US FEEL SAFE.

MY MESSAGE TO THEM IS

THAT THEY SHOULD NOT WORRY

BECAUSE THEY SAY IF THERE IS

LIFE, THERE IS HOPE.

Wendy: WHERE THERE IS

LIFE THERE IS IS HOPE.

THAT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.

GARY LANE TALKED TO DAVID

DARD ABOUT HIS TRIP TO THE

REGION, AND WHAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" MEANS TO THESE

STUDENTS.

Reporter: YOU HAD HEAVY

SECURITY AS YOU WENT TO THIS

VILLAGE.

WHAT'S THE SITUATION LIKE

THERE ON THE GROUND?

WELL, GARY, IT WAS PRETTY

NERVE-WRACKING BEING THERE.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

DANGEROUS PLACES IN THE

WORLD RIGHT NOW.

VERY LAWLESS.

DESPITE A HUGE MILITARY

PRESENCE, EVERY DAY THERE

SEEMS TO BE KIDNAPPINGS AND

BOMBINGS.

AND THE VERY TOWN WE WERE

HEADED TO, UP IN NIGERIA,

THERE WAS A SUICIDE BOMBING

JUST LAST WEEK, WHERE OVER

40 PEOPLE HAD BEEN KILLED.

IT WAS A PRETTY

NERVE-WRACKING EXPERIENCE.

Reporter: I'M SURE IT

HAS AFFECTED THE MOOD OF THE

STUDENTS AT THAT SCHOOL.

ARE THEY AFRAID BOKO HARAM

MIGHT ATTACK THEM?

THE SCHOOL IS ONLY ABOUT

45 MINUTES -- 45 MILES AWAY

FROM THE AREA WHERE THE 200

SOME GIRLS WERE KIDNAPPED

JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO.

AND WHEN THAT HAPPENED, THE

SCHOOL THAT WE'RE WORKING IN

WAS SHUT DOWN BY THE

MILITARY.

THEY TOLD OUR SCHOOL WE HAD

TO EVACUATE WITHIN TWO AND A

HALF HOURS, AND SHUT IT DOWN

FOR SECURITY REASONS AND

SENT ALL OF THE KIDS HOME.

IT WAS ONLY JUST LAST WEEK

THAT THE CHILDREN WERE

ALLOWED TO COME BACK TO

SCHOOL.

WE WERE THERE FOR THAT

MOMENT, WHEN THEY STARTED

COMING BACK.

AND AS YOU CAN IMAGINE,

ANXIETY AND NERVES WERE

DEFINITELY THERE AMONGST THE

STUDENTS AND THE STAFF

BECAUSE THEY ARE DEFINITELY

IN HARM'S WAY IN THAT AREA.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING'S" HELP WAS REALLY

TIMELY.

HOW DID THEY RESPOND TO YOUR

GIFTS, AND SEEING THAT

PEOPLE THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW

AROUND THE WORLD ACTUALLY

CARE ABOUT THEM?

NUMBER ONE, JUST US BEING

THEM WAS CERTAINLY

ENCOURAGING TO THEM, TO KNOW

THEY HAVE FRIENDS AROUND THE

WORLD THINKING OF THEM.

AND TO RECEIVE SOME OF THE

AID THAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" BROUGHT WAS A HUGE

ENCOURAGEMENT.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PROVIDED SCHOOL FOR THIS

SCHOOL, AND BOOKS FOR A

LIBRARY, AND WE'RE HELPING

TO RAMP UP THE EDUCATION.

WE BOUGHT FOUR DESKTOP

COMPUTERS AND THEY HAVE A

NEW COMPUTER LAB NOW.

IT WAS INCREDIBLE FOR ME TO

SEE HOW HUNGRY FOR EDUCATION

THESE GIRLS AND BOYS ARE.

BUT THIS ISN'T A VERY SIMPLE

EDUCATION THEY'RE GETTING.

THEY'RE LEARNING BIOLOGY,

CHEMISTRY, AND NOW

COMPUTING.

AND THEY'RE EXTREMELY

INTELLIGENT, WONDERFUL,

RESILIENT KIDS, THAT ARE

DEFIANTLY SAYING WE'RE GOING

TO STAY IN SCHOOL AND LEARN,

DESPITE THE THREAT ALL

AROUND US BY THE INSURGENTS

AND MILITANTS.

Reporter: HOW SHOULD WE

PRAY FOR THESE STUDENTS,

DAVID?

OKAY, NUMBER ONE, THEY

NEED PRAYER FOR SECURITY.

IT WAS A POWERFUL THING TO

SEE THE BRAVERY, IN SPITE OF

THE THREAT.

BUT THEY DEFINITELY NEED

PRAYER, BECAUSE, AS I SAID,

THEY'RE IN HARM'S WAY.

AND BOKO HARAM HAS SAID THAT

THEY WILL KIDNAP MORE

GIRLS.

THEY WILL ATTACK MORE

SCHOOLS.

AND THERE AREN'T MANY

SCHOOLS IN THE AREA.

SO IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THEY

RECEIVE PRAYER FOR

SECURITY.

AND JUST PRAYER THAT MORE

CAN BE DONE TO HELP THEM.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

ALREADY PLANNING ON DRILLING

A WELL FOR THE SCHOOL AND

HELPING THEM IN OTHER WAYS.

BUT THEY NEED LOTS OF

SUPPORT AND PRAYERS AT THIS

POINT IN TIME.

Wendy: MAKERS, THOSE

GIRLMARK, THOSE GIRLS ARE

SO BRAVE.

AND WE ARE PRAYING FOR THEIR

SAFETY.

Mark: UP NEXT, SURFER

BET BETHANY HAMILTON MAKES

A BIG SPLASH WITH A NEW

BOOK.

HEAR HER ADVICE FOR A

HEALTHY BODY AND SOUL, WHEN

WE COME BACK.

Mark: FROM MAGAZINES TO

THE BIG SCREEN, YOUNG GIRLS

ARE BOMBARDED,

UNFORTUNATELY, WITH IMAGES

BY THE PERFECT BODY.

Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT.

BUT AS SURFER BETHANY

HAMILTON REMINDS US, THAT'S

NOT WHAT TRUE BEAUTY IS

REALLY ABOUT.

WE SIT DOWN WITH BETHANY 10

YEARS AFTER HER TERRIBLE

SHARK ATTACK.

Reporter: PRO SURFER

BETHANY HAMILTON HAS

INSPIRED MILLIONS WITH HER

STORY OF FAITH AND

DETERMINATION.

AFTER LOSING HER ARM IN A

2003 SHARK ATTACK, SHE HOPES

TO REACH A NEW AUDIENCE IN

HER BOOK CALLED "BODY AND

SOUL, A GIRL'S GUIDE TO A

FIT, FUN, AND FABULOUS

LIFE."

MY HEART BEHIND "BODY AND

SOUL" WAS TO ENCOURAGED

TEENAGED GIRLS, AND NOW THAT

I THINK OF IT, GIRLS MY AGE

AND WOMEN OF ALL AGES TO

MAKE HEALTHIER CHOICES IN

THEIR DAILY LIFE.

Reporter: BETHANY

HAMILTON IS ON A MISSION,

TRAVELLING THE COUNTRY,

INCLUDING HERE IN NEW YORK

CITY.

HER GOAL IS TO HELP INSPIRE

YOUNG GIRLS TO BE HEALTHY ON

THE INSIDE AS WELL AS THE

OUTSIDE.

YOU KIND OF LOOK AT THE

HEALTH OF OUR COUNTRY, AND

THERE IS, LIKE, HUGE OBESITY

RATES AND DISEASE RATES, AND

GIRLS THAT ARE HAVING EATING

DISORDERS.

THEY THINK THEY HAVE TO LOOK

LIKE THIS GIRL OR THAT

GIRL.

AND I WANTED TO BE ABLE TO

SHED SOME LIGHT IN THAT

AREA.

Reporter: AS A PRO

ATHLETE, HAMILTON'S ADVICE

BEGINS WITH AN ORGANIC

FOOD.

AND SHE TALKS ABOUT HOW TO

PORTION YOUR FOOD AND THE

IMPORTANCE OF NATURAL FOOD,

INCLUDING A SMOOTHIE SHE

BLENDS EVERY MORNING.

I'LL START WITH PUTTING

SPINACH IN IT AND MAYBE SOME

MANGO AND I'LL PUT ALMOND

MILK IN IT.

I DON'T DO MUCH DAIRY.

Reporter: HAMILTON SAYS

STAY ACTIVE.

HER BOOK INCLUDES WORKOUTS

DEVELOPED ESPECIALLY FOR

YOUNG GIRLS.

BETHANY AND I HIT THE GYM AS

SHE SHOWED ME SOME OF THE

EXERCISES SHE EXPLAINS IN

HER BOOK.

RANGING FROM LUNGES TO WHAT

SHE CALLS THE DUCK WALK.

MOST OF HER EXERCISES CAN BE

DONE ANYWHERE, AND THEY'RE

ALSO FUN TO DO WITH

FRIENDS.

THIS ONE IS AFTER DOING

LUNGES, BECAUSE IT IS REALLY

IMPORTANT TO STRETCH YOUR

HAMSTRINGS.

Reporter: AND BETHANY

ALSO WRITES ABOUT OTHER FUN

WAYS TO WORK UP A SWEAT,

STRESSING THE IMPORTANCE FOR

YOUR MENTAL WELL-BEING.

NOT EVERY GIRL WHO PICKS

UP THIS BOOK IS GOING TO

SAY, I WANT TO BE THE BEST

SURFER IN THE WORLD.

BUT THEY NEED TO FIND THEIR

PASSIONS.

I DON'T THINK WE'RE CALLED

TO SIT ON OUR iPHONES OR

COMPUTERS ALL DAY LONG.

I THINK WE'RE SUPPOSED TO

GET OUT AND ABOUT.

Reporter: GETTING OFF

THOSE ELECTRONICS WILL HELP

YOU GET INVOLVED IN ANOTHER

KEY TO YOUR GROWTH,

NURTURING YOUR SPIRIT.

THROUGHOUT THE BOOK, SHE

LISTS BIBLE VERSES FOR YOUNG

GIRLS TO REMEMBER AS THEY

DEVELOP AND GROW.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR

THE GIRLS TO FIND TIME

THROUGHOUT THE DAY TO DIG

INTO GOD'S WORD AND KNOW HIS

TRUTH.

Reporter: SHE RECENTLY

MARRIED HER BEST FRIEND,

ADAM DIRK.

THEY TRAVEL TOGETHER FOR

BUSINESS, WHETHER FOR

SURFING OR SPEECH SPEAKING

ENGAGEMENTS.

BETHANY RECENTLY SPOKE AT

THE NATIONAL PRAYER

BREAKFAST IN WASHINGTON,

D.C.

IT IS COOL TO BE ABLE TO

SHARE WITH LEADERS FROM ALL

OVER THE WORLD OF MANY

DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS.

Reporter: AS BETHANY

CONTINUES TO SPREAD HER

MESSAGE OF FAITH, "BODY AND

SOUL" FOCUSES ON BECOMING

YOUR BEST YOU, THROUGH

PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL

BALANCE.

ANGELA ZADAPEG, CBN NEWS,

NEW YORK.

Mark: THE BENHAM

BROTHERS JOIN CBN NEWS AT

THE CONGRESSIONAL

CORRESPONDENTS' DINNER.

WHAT THEY TOLD WASHINGTON'S

ELITE ABOUT THE ROLE THAT

FAITH PLACE IN OUR COUNTRY'S

FUTURE.

UP NEXT.

Mark: FINALLY THIS

HOUR, IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE,

BUT REPUBLICANS AND

DEMOCRATS IN WASHINGTON LAID

DOWN THEIR POLITICAL

DIFFERENCES AND MADE NICE.

Wendy: DID IT REALLY

HAPPEN?

AT LEAST FOR A FEW HOURS

LAST NIGHT, FROM SENATOR TED

CRUZ TO DENNIS McDONA,

CONSERVATIVES AND LIBERALS

ATTENDED THE ANNUAL

CONGRESSIONAL

CORRESPONDENTS' DINNER.

THIS YEAR THEY HOSTED

BROTHERS DAVID AND JASON

BENHAM.

THEY MADE HEADLINES FOR NOT

BACKING DOWN FROM THEIR

TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN

BELIEFS THAT COST THEM A

REALITY PROGRAM ON HGTV.

THEY ATTENDED THE DINNER TO

SHOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST, TO

SOME OF THE PEOPLE WHO

INTERVIEWED DURING THE

FIRESTORM, AND TO ENCOURAGE

JESUS' BELIEVERS TO STAND

STRONG.

WE HAD SO MANY FOLKS WHO

SAY YOU GUYS ARE BEING

PERSECUTED.

AND I SAY, PERSECUTION IS

MERIAM IBRAHIM, WHO IS SET

TO RECEIVE 100 LASHES AND

THEN TO BE HANGED FOR HER

FAITH.

THAT'S PERSECUTION.

BUT THAT WILL COME HERE

IF WE DON'T TAKE A STAND

NOW.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE SO

COMPELLED TO STAND FOR

JESUS.

2 CHRONICLE: "IF MY PEOPLE

WHO ARE CALLED UPON MY NAME

WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND

SEEK FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS,

I WILL HEAL THE LAND."

WE WANT OUR LAND HEALED.

WE WANT OUR NATION HEALED.

Mark: THEY'RE ON TRACK,

AREN'T THEY?

Wendy: THEY SAY THEY'RE

PRAYING AND BELIEVING THAT

AMERICA IS IN THE MIDST OF A

SPIRITUAL AWAKENING.

AND IF WE HAD MORE PEOPLE

LIKE THAT WE CERTAINLY WOULD

BE, MARK.

Mark: THAT'S RIGHT.

WE NEED MORE PEOPLE TO STAND

UP AND STAND OUR GROUND.

Wendy: THAT WILL DO IT

FOR THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."

Mark: HAVE A GREAT

WEEKEND.
