TODAY ON NEWSWATCH. MESSAGED

NOT

RECEIVED. THE BREAKDOWN WITH

KENYA AND

LEADERS. WHAT HAPPENED NEXT.

I REALLY FEEL GOD'S

PLEASURE.

A CHAPEL WHO WOULD RATHER

PRAY IN

JAIL.

A MAN IN AFRICA WITH MUSIC

AN DANCE.

WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

JOINING US

ON CBN NEWSWATCH. I'M EFREM

GRAHAM.

PRESIDENT OBAMA CONTINUES HIS

TOUR IN

AFRICA. HIS MESSAGE ABOUT GAY

RIGHTS

WAS NOT WELL RECEIVED. HERE IS

THE

STORY.

TODAY PRESIDENT OBAMA HELD

TALKS

WITH RELATIONSHIP -- ETHIOPIA

N

LEADERS. URGING THE HOMELAND OF

IT'S

FATHER TO ROOT OUT CORRUPTION,

TREAT

WOMEN AND MINORITIES AS EQUALS

AND TO

PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF

HOMOSEXUALS.

I HAVE BEEN CONSISTENT ALL

ACROSS

AFRICA ON THIS. I BELIEVE IN

THE

PRINCIPAL OF TREATING PEOPLE

EQUALLY

UNDER THE LAW. AND THAT THEY

ARE

DESERVING OF EQUAL PROTECTION

UNDER THE

LAW AND THAT THE STATE SHOULD

NOT

DISCRIMINATE AGAINST PEOPLE

BASED ON

THEY ARE SEXUAL ORIENTATION.

BUT IN AN INTENSE EXCHANGE

KENYA'S

PRESIDENT DID NOT AGREE WITH

THIS AND

DID NOT SHARE THESE DIFFERENCE.

WE SHARE MANY THINGS BUT

THERE ARE

THINGS WE DON'T SHARE. FOR

KENYA TODAY.

THE ISSUE OF GAY RIGHTS IS

REALLY A

NON-ISSUE. WE WANT TO FOCUS ON

OTHER

AREAS THAT ARE DAY-TO-DAY

LIVING FOR

OUR PEOPLE.

IN KENYA HOMOSEXUAL

RELATIONSHIPS

CARRY PUNISHMENT OF I

MPRISONMENT.

MANY DENIED THE LECTURE.

IF PRESIDENT OBAMA TALKS

ABOUT GAY

RIGHTS, ACCORDING TO HIM, WE

TOOK HIM

AS AN AMERICAN. HE WAS LIKE AN

AMERICAN. BUT ACCORDING TO OUR

AFRICAN

CULTURE. THEY KNOW.

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE

MIKE HUCKABEE IS NOT BACKING

DOWN,

SAYING OBAMA IS PUSHING ANOTHER

HOLOCAUST AND MARCHING THE

ISRAELIS TO

THE DOOR OF THE OVEN CHARGING

WITH

BLASPHEMY THE COMMENT. ISLAMIC

REGION

IN AT THE -- TEHRAN.

> A TRIBUTE TO SATAN T GOLD

HEADED

FIGURE STANDS MORE THAN EIGHT

FEET

TALL. IT HAS PLANS FOR A

PRIVATE EVENT

BUT THE RESTAURANT CANCELED

RESERVATION

UNTIL IT KNEW OF IT'S PLAN. IT

BANNED

THE MONUMENT AND SUPPORTS THE

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE

AND NOW

WANT TO REFIGURE THE STATE OF

ARKANSAS

WHERE THE MONUMENT IS PLANNED.

> A VIDEO SHOWING OFFICIALS

DISCUSSING PRICES FOR BODY

PARTS. THE

PRESIDENT OF THE NATION'S

LARGEST

ABORTION PROVIDERS ARE THAT THE

VIDEOS

ARE HIGHLY REGULATED AND THAT

HE HAS

DONE NOTHING ILLEGAL AND SHOULD

BE

COMMENDED FOR PROVIDING FETAL

BODY

PARTS FOR RESEARCH.

IT'S PROVIDING FETAL TISSUE

FOR LIFE.

DR. KING HAD TWO ABORTIONS

BEFORE

REPENTING AND BECOMING A PRO

LIFE

ACTIVIST AND THAT ABORTION

CLINICS

DON'T GIVE THE WOMEN THE

INFORMATION

THEY NEED.

IT'S SO RUSHED. THERE IS NO

TIME TO

CONSIDER YOUR DECISION. NOBODY

IS GOING

TO TELL YOU THAT YOUR BABY WILL

FEEL

PAIN. WE ARE GOING TO USE THE

ULTRASOUND SO WE MAKE SURE WE

DON'T

PAIR UP THE LIVER OR THE HEART.

WHERE

DID THIS BLOB GET, WHERE DID

THE BABY

GET? A HEART, A LIVER, A

KIDNEY. THESE

ARE BABIES.

YOU CAN SEE THAT FULL

INTERVIEW WITH

DR. KING AT OUR WEBSITE AND CBN

NEWS.COM.

A REQUIREMENT OF THE STATE

THAT HAS

TO PROVIDE AN ABORTION. THE

REGULATIONS

RULING ABOUT TWO INDIVIDUAL

PHARMACIST

AND ONE FAMILY OWNED PHARMACY.

THEY

HAVE BEEN REFERRING PATIENTS TO

30

NEARBY PHARMACIES FOR THOSE

DRUGS. THEY

ARE REFERRING PATIENTS

ELSEWHERE FOR

ECONOMIC REGIONS BUT NOT FOR

CONSCIOUS.

THE ALLIANCE FOR FREEDOM SAID

"NO ONE

SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO CHOOSE

BETWEEN

THEIR FAMILIES BUSINESS AND

LIVELIHOOD

SPECIAL FOR ANY OTHER REASON"

THE SUPREME COURT IS ASKING

TO

CHANGE THE CONTRACEPTION

MANDATE RULING

COMPENSATING A NON-PROFIT. THE

ATTORNEY

FOR THE LITTLE SISTERS FOR THE

POOR OR

COLLEGES SAYS THAT ARRANGING TO

PROVIDE

CONTRACEPTION ANNOUNCE TO A

SLIP AND

CONSIDER IT IMMORAL TO HELP THE

GOVERNMENT DISTRIBUTE THESE

DRUGS.

> A RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN

TECHNIQUE

TEXT -- TECHNIQUE TEXAS WITH

THE

OPPORTUNITY TO VOTE. PASTORS

AND OTHER

OPPONENTS GATHERED SOME 18,000

SIGNATURES NEEDED TO PUT THE

ORDINANCE

ON THE BALLOT. AND MANY OF THE

SIGNATURES WERE INVALID AND

WHEN SUED,

THEY TRIED TO APPEAL THE IS --

SERMON.

AND THAT FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION

CAN BE

REMOVED FROM REMOVING IT'S FROM

INTERFERING WITH THE LIVES.

A DIVERSE TO PENSION FUNDS

FROM

ANTI-ISRAEL MOVEMENT FOR

BOYCOTT

SANCTIONS DIVESTMENT ON

ECONOMIC

PRESSURE OF ISRAEL TO MAKING

CONCESSIONS ON THE

PALESTINIANS. AND

SAID WE NEED TO STAND AGAINST

ANTI-SEMITISM AND I HOPE OTHER

STATES

MOVE QUICKLY TO FOLLOW OUR

LEAD.

A SMALL NUMBER OF CUBANS ARE

BECOMING PRIVATE BUSINESS

OWNERS UNDER

THE RECENT GOVERNMENT RULES. A

FEW

CUBANS LIKE PHOTOGRAPHER

EDUARDO PEREZ.

HE STARTED HIS OWN BUSINESS

IN

HAVANA FIVE YEARS AGO. HIS LOVE

FOR

PHOTOGRAPHY LED TO PROFESSIONAL

SUCCESS. TODAY, ED'S STUDIO IS

NOT ONLY

FINANCIALLY SUCCESSFUL BUT

ALLOWS HIM

TO SUPPORT A CAUSE CLOSE TO HIS

HEART.

THIS GAVE US AN OPPORTUNITY

TO

HIGHLIGHT THE BEAUTY OF GOD.

THAT'S

WHAT WE ARE CALLED TO DO. FROM

THE

BEGINNING WE WERE VERY CLEAR

THERE THAT

SHOULD BE A BUSINESS THAT

SERVES

OTHERS, NOT JUST A MEANS FOR

FINANCIAL

GAIN. AS WE GOT BETTER WE HAVE

BEEN

ABLE TO GET BETTER AND SUPPORT

THE

MINISTRY.

WE HAVE BEGUN WITH NOTHING

AND

EXPANDED OUR PHOTOGRAPHY WITH

OTHER

GOALS LIKE SOCIAL WORK LIKE IN

COMMUNITY AND SCHOOLS.

THE STUDIO BECAME KNOWN FOR

UNIQUE

CROWN SHOTS OF THE CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY.

ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING

GROUPS IN

CUBA YET VIRTUALLY IGNORED BY

COOGAN

MEDIA. THEY DOCUMENTED THE

PUBLIC

ACTIVITIES OF THE CHURCH AND

MANAGED TO

DISPLAY THOSE PICTURES IN

EXHIBITION. A

MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT IN CUBA.

WE ARE TRYING TO CAPTURE

HIGHLY

ATTENDED CHURCH ACTIVITY ON A

NATIONAL

LEVEL AND CREATE A REPORT

THAT'S

DOCUMENTED. WE WANT THE PEOPLE

IN THE

EASTERN AND CENTRAL PARTS OF

THE

COUNTRY TO KNOW WHAT'S BEING

DONE IN

HAVANA AND VICE VERSA. EVERY

CHANCE I

GET I SHOW OTHER BELIEVERS THAT

WE ARE

MORE AND WE ARE DOING MORE

THINGS AND

GOD IS OPENING MORE DOORS THAN

EVER

REALIZED.

THE STUDIO IS A CHRISTIAN

BUSINESS

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN CUBA.

STAN

GEETER'S CBN NEWS.

COMING UP, GANG VIOLENCE IN

PLACES

WHERE YOU LEAST EXPECT IT. A

MAN

CHANGING THE NAME IN

SUBCULTURE.

GANG VIOLENCE IS ON THE RISE

IN

AMERICA AROUND HERE IT'S

SPREADING FROM

SUBURBS AND EVEN INTO SMALLER

TOWNS.

EVEN THOUGH THIS IS SEEING

AROUND, SOME

ARE PRESENTING AN OPPORTUNITY

FOR THE

GANGS TODAY.

I LOVE GOING TO THE JAIL.

THAT'S

WHERE I FEEL GOD'S PLEASURE.

THEY ARE

ONTO IT QUICKLY. THAT'S THE

BEST PART.

THEY ARE MY BEST THEOLOGICAL

PEOPLE,

THEY ARE FULL OF PROFANITY AND

HONEST.

FOUND THIS IN CHURCH.

I WAS A WORSHIP LEADER, BUT

I WANTED

JESUS. I WANTED TO FIND JESUS

AND TOUCH

JESUS AN NOT JUST SING ABOUT IT.

HE FOUND MOST HARDEST

CRIMINALS,

GANGS AND CRIMINALS.

GANGS CAN HAPPEN IN ANY

COMMUNITY

ANYWHERE. IN THE EARLY 90s WE

SAW OUR

TYPES OF CRIMES CHANGING. WE

SAW THEM

STIRRING AWAY FROM PROPERTY

CRIMES TO

MORE VIOLENT CRIMES AS DRIVE BY

SHOOTINGS.

IT'S ON THE I-5 CORRIDOR

FROM MEXICO

TO CANADA.

SOME TRY TO LEAVE THE GANG

STYLE SO

THEY COME HERE. SOME ARE

BRANCHING OUT

TO DO THEIR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES

IN

AREAS THAT THEY ARE NOT KNOWN

FOR.

MIGRANT WORKERS COMING HERE

FOR

SEASONAL WORK OFTEN STAY. THEIR

CHILDREN CAN HAVE A HARD TIME

SITTING

IN.

THERE IS A LOT OF RACISM

GOING ON.

KIDS MADE FUN OF ME. THAT

PUSHED ME TO

NOT MESS WITH THESE GUYS AND

NOT

WANTING TO BE AROUND AND START

HANGING

AROUND WITH OTHER CROWDS.

HE WAS ONLY 8 YEARS OLD WHEN

HE

STARTED HANGING OUT WITH ONE OF

THE

WORST VIOLENT GANGS. THEY

CALLED HIM

NENERS.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY FEELINGS.

THEY

THOUGHT I WAS HEARTLESS.

IT MAY SEEM LIKE A DAUNT

LESS TASK.

BUT THEY ARE UNIQUE TO HEAR THE

VOICE

OF THEIR SHEPHERD.

THEY UNDERSTAND THAT JESUS

IS THE

MODE OF IT'S OPERATION AND

POSSE OF

GALILEE. THEY KNEW HOW TO FIND

THE

LONELY AND THE BROKEN LIVES OF

MEN AND

WOMEN IN THIS VALLEY. THEY

BROUGHT ME

TO THEM.

DID YOU EVER FEEL

INTIMIDATED BY

THESE GANG MEMBERS?

NO. I JUST LOVED THESE GUYS.

IT FELT

LIKE A LOVE ADVENTURE. WE PRAY

AND THEY

POUR OUT THEIR HEARTS. THIS IS

THE

FRIENDSHIP I WAS LOOKING FOR.

THEY EXCHANGED MANY LETTERS

WHEN HE

WAS INCARCERATED.

I THOUGHT I MESSED UP. WHY

ARE YOU

DOING THESE THINGS. I WAS IN A

FRIENDSHIP. HE WAS SEEING MY

INNER

HEART INSTEAD OF THE TOUGH

MACHO GUY

THAT HE SEE'S THAT HE'S JUST A

GANGSTER.

HE STARTED HAVING MORE HOPE.

HE SAID

I WANT TO MEET MY LITTLE GIRL.

CAN YOU

HELP HER COME VISIT ME.

AFTER A MONTH HE DROVE HIS

DAUGHTER

TO MEET HER FATHER. THAT

SACRIFICE

PROVED TO BE A BREAK THROUGH

FOR NENERS

AND HE CRIED FOR THE FIRST TIME

IN 15

YEARS. IT WASN'T MISERY THAT

MADE HIM

CRACK BUT MERCY AND A PRISON

LETTER

THAT LEADS YOU TO REPENTANCE.

HE WALKED

OUT OF PRISON HOPING FOR THE

LAST TIME.

HE IS NOW RAISING HIS TWO

DAUGHTERS.

I HAVE NEVER BEEN A FATHER

AND I'M

GOING TO BE SOMETHING I HAVE

ALWAYS

WANTED. I THOUGHT I WOULD BE A

GANGSTER

MY WHOLE LIFE GANG-BANGING OR

LOCKED

UP. I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE

THIS

GOOD.

GANG ACTIVITY HAS DECREASED

IN

RECENT YEARS BELOW THE NATIONAL

AVERAGE

AND ESPECIALLY WHEN SOMEONE

LIKE NENERS

TURNS HIS LIFE AROUND.

WHEN YOU SEE YOURSELF IN A

GANG AS

BEING TOWARDS THE TOP AND

CHOOSING TO

LEVI THINK THAT SENDS A BIG

MESSAGE

WITHIN THE GANG CULTURE.

TO BELIEVE IN GOD IS

SOMETHING ELSE,

BUT THAT I'M DOING IT, WE WANT

WHAT

HE'S GOT. TRYING TO DO

SOMETHING GOOD

IN MY LIFE.

UNCONVENTIONAL

WAY. CBN NEWS KENYA.
