IMMIGRATION CRISIS.

U.S. PLANS TO HELP WITH

THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS

OF REFUGEES FLEEING THE

MIDDLE EAST.

> PLUS...

I JUST WANT TO GIVE GOD

THE GLORY.

HIS PEOPLE HAVE RALLIED,

AND YOU ARE A STRONG

PEOPLE!

FROM JAIL, AND STILL

REFUSES TO ISSUE GAY

MARRIAGE LICENSES.

HEAR WHAT IS NEXT FOR KIM

DAVIS.

SOMETIMES WITHOUT

SUFFERING, THERE IS NO

CHALLENGE.

AND WITHOUT THAT

CHALLENGE, THERE IS NO

VICTORY.

SEE HOW THE CHURCH IN

CUBA IS GROWING DESPITE

DECADES OF POLITICAL

RESTRICTIONS.

> THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M CAITLIN BURKE.

KIM DAVIS WOKE UP A FREE

WOMAN THIS MORNING.

THE KENTUCKY COUNTY CLERK

SPENT FIVE DAYS BEHIND

BARS AFTER A JUDGE THREW

HER IN JAIL FOR NOT

ISSUING GAY MARRIAGE

LICENSES.

SHE SAYS SHE COULDN'T

BETRAY HER CHRISTIAN FAITH

SINCE THOSE LICENSES WOULD

BE GRANTED UNDER HER

AUTHORITY.

CBN'S DAVID BRODY

TRAVELLED TO KENTUCKY FOR

WHAT TURNED INTO WHAT WAS

A BIG EVANGELICAL PARTY.

David: THE ROLLING

HILLS OF NORTHEASTERN

KENTUCKY, AND ON

ESPECIALLY HOT DAYS, THE

PERISHERS COME HERE

"PRAYER CONDITIONED."

THEY CAME HERE TO RALLY

FOR KIM DAVIS' FREEDOM AND

ENJOYED SOMETHING EVEN

BETTER.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.

David: THE SAME

JUDGE THAT PUT HER BEHIND

BARS ALSO LET HER GO,

SAYING SINCE HER DEPUTY

CLERKS BEGAN ISSUING

LICENSES TO GAY COUPLES,

THERE WOULD BE NO REASON

TO KEEP HER IN JAIL.

IF SHE TRIES TO INTERFERE,

HOWEVER, WHEN SHE RETURNS

TO WORK, THERE COULD BE

MORE LEGAL TROUBLE.

FOR NOW, THOUGH...

I JUST WANT TO GIVE GOD

THE GLORY.

HIS PEOPLE HAVE RALLIED,

AND YOU ARE A STRONG

PEOPLE!

[APPLAUSE]

[CHEERING]

WE SERVE A LIVING GOD

WHO KNOWS EXACTLY WHERE

EACH ONE OF US IS AT.

JUST KEEP ON PRESSING.

DON'T LET DOWN BECAUSE HE

IS HERE.

David: THAT WAS

MUSIC TO THE EARS OF

HUNDREDS WHO CAME FROM ALL

OVER THE COUNTRY TO

SUPPORT DAVIS' STAND FOR

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND THE

BIBLICAL DEFINITION OF

MARRIAGE.

I DID NOT WANT MY

CHILDREN TO MISS THIS

WOMAN IN HISTORY AS THIS

COURAGEOUS WOMAN OF GOD IS

BEING PERSECUTED FOR HER

FAITH.

WE NEED TO STAND UP.

WE NEED TO STAND UP AS

BELIEVERS.

OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED ON

CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES.

David: MIKE HUCKABEE

HELPED ORGANIZE THE RALLY

AND MET WITH DAVIS AFTER

HER RELEASE.

SO DID G.O.P. PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE TED CRUZ.

BUT POLITICS TOOK A BACK

SEAT, WITH HUCKABEE

TELLING CBN NEWS THIS WAS

A DAY TO BELIEVE IN A GOD

OF MIRACLES.

THIS IS A GOD OF MIRACLES

TODAY?

I THINK IT IS A GOD OF

MORE OMIRACLES THAT WE SAW ACT

IN GETTING KIM DAVIS OUT

OF JAIL.

BUT HER BEING IN JAIL

BROUGHT ATTENTION TO

SOMETHING THAT MANY OF US

HAVE WARNED ABOUT, THE

CRIMINALIZATION OF

CHRISTIANITY.

David: THIS FIGHT

HAS BEEN BREWING SINCE THE

SUPREME COURT RULED IN

FAVOR OF GAY MARRIAGE.

JOHN ROBERTS WARNED THAT

EVENTS LIKE THIS WOULD

HAPPEN, AND FINDING A

RIGHT TO MARRIAGE OF

EQUALITY IN THE CONTUSION

WHAT RAISE OTHER PROBLEMS

WHEN PEOPLE OF FAITH RAISE

DECISIONS THAT SEEM TO

CONFLICT WITH THE SUPREME

COURT DECISION.

WE'VE GOT TO BE READY

AND STEADFAST.

AND ALWAYS BE READY TO

STAND UP AND STAND OUT FOR

JESUS CHRIST.

David: AS FOR KIM

DAVIS' FUTURE, HER LAWYERS

WANT AN ACCOMMODATION SO

THAT HER NAME OR AUTHORITY

DOESN'T HAVE TO BE PART OF

THE MARRIAGE LICENSE.

THEY BELIEVE THE KENTUCKY

GOVERNOR CAN SOLVE THE

PROBLEM WITH AN EXECUTIVE

ORDER THAT ALLOWS THE

LICENSES TO COME FROM THE

COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY.

BUT SHE WON'T BACK DOWN.

SHE WILL NOT VIOLATE

HER CON SENSE.

CONSCIENCE.

SHE WILL RETURN TO WORK

LATER THIS WEEK AND SHE

WILL NOT ABANDON HER POST

AT THAT POSITION SHE HAS

BEEN DEMOCRATICALLY

ELECTED TO SERVE.

David: THE SMALL

TOWN OF KENTUCKY HAS A

SMALL TURN ON THE

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY MAP.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, IN

KENTUCKY.

IT APPEARS CHAPLAIN WES

MOTOR WILL NOT BE PUSHED

OUT OF THE NAVY.

TOP NAVY OFFICIALS

INVESTIGATED BUT FOUND

LIMITED EVIDENCE OF

MISCONDUCT.

THE NAVY PERSONNEL COMMAND

SAYS THE EVIDENCE DOESN'T

MEET THE STANDARD OF GROSS

NEGLIGENCE OR COMPLETE

DISREGARD FOR DUTY, WHICH

IS NEEDED TO BOOT OUT AN

OFFICER.

> YOU HAVE SEEN THE HUGE

REFUGEE CRISIS IN EUROPE.

NOW OUR PRESIDENT WANTS TO

BRING SOME OF THOUG THOSE

REFUGEES HERE.

Reporter:THE.N.

SASE TO MILLION

MIANTS ARE EXCTED

TER EUROPE B T END OF

THAR.

THE HOUSE SA

OF TWILL BE COMING TO

THE U.S.

AMERICA'S WORLDWIDE ANNUAL

REFUGEE QUOTA IS 70,000.

NOW THERE IS PRESSURE FROM

EUROPE TO RAISE THAT

NUMBER CONSIDERABLY.

NO DECISIONS HAVE BEEN

MADE ABOUT FUTURE

RESETTLEMENT, PAST THIS

FISCAL YEAR, BUT I THINK

IT IS REASONABLE TO EXPECT

AND ASSUME THAT WILL BE

ADDITIONAL RESETTLEMENTS

GOING INTO NEXT YEAR.

WHAT THAT IS GOING TO LOOK

LIKE, HOW MANY, I DON'T

HAVE A NUMBER FOR YOU.

Reporter: TODAY THE

EUROPEAN COMMISSION HEAD

ANNOUNCED A PLAN TO

DISTRIBUTE 160,000

MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES

ACROSS 22 NATIONS IN

EUROPE.

HE STRESSED IT WAS WRONG

TO BE CONCERNED THAT THE

REFUGEES WERE MOSTLY

MUSLIM.

THERE IS NO RELIGION,

THERE IS NO BELIEF, THERE

IS NO PHILOSOPHY, WHEN IT

COMES TO REFUGEES.

Reporter: THIS SYRIAN

REFUGEE ABOUT TO LEAVE

TURKEY AS THE DANGER IN

SYRIA IS ALSO BIG BECAUSE

THERE IS WAR.

IN TURKEY WE CANNOT FIND A

JOB.

A QUICK DEATH IS BETTER

THAN A SLOW ONE BECAUSE IF

WE DIE AT SEA, WE DIE

QUICKLY.

BUT WHAT IS VERY

DISTURBING TO SOME

OBSERVERS IS THAT

ACCORDING TO THE U.N., 72%

OF THE MIGRANTS ENTERING

EUROPE ARE MEN.

REFUGEES TYPICALLY MOVE AS

FAMILIES.

TERRORIST EXPERTS HAS

WARNED THAT ISIS HAS A

PLAN TO SEND FIGHTERS TO

EUROPE.

ABOUT THE WHITE HOUSE PLAN

TO BRING SOME OF THE

MIGRANTS TO THE U.S., THE

REPUBLICAN CHAIRMAN OF THE

HOMELAND COMMITTEE SAYS

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS A

RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND

OUR COUNTRY.

TERRORISTS HAVE EXPLOITED

THE REFUGEE PROCESS TO

SNEAK INTO OUR COUNTRY IN

THE PAST.

THE OFFICIALS HAVE WARNED

THE COMMITTEE THAT WE LACK

THE ON THE GROUND

INTELLIGENCE NEEDED TO

PROPERLY VET PEOPLE FOR

RESETTLEMENT.

THIS REMINDS SOME OF A

NOVEL, "THE CAMP OF THE

SAINTS."

IT PREDICTED THAT EUROPE

WOULD FALL WHEN AFRICANS

AND ASIANS SUDDENLY

FLOODED THE CONTINENT, AND

EUROPEANS NO LONGER HAD

THE WILL TO EXIST, TO

MAINTAIN THEIR OWN

IDENTITIES.

THIS REFUGEE SURGE HAS NOT

REACHED THAT CRISIS, BUT

IT WILL CERTAINLY CHANGE

EUROPE AND COULD CHANGE

AMERICA AS WELL.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

SENATE DEMOCRATS NOW

HAVE ENOUGH VOTES TO

FILIBUSTER ATTEMPTS TO

BLOCK PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

NUCLEAR DEAL WITH IRAN.

FOUR NEW DEMOCRATIC

SENATORS CAME OUT IN FAVOR

OF THE DEAL ON TUESDAY.

REPUBLICANS SAY IT IS A

BAD DEAL, THAT GIVES IRAN

TOO MUCH FREEDOM TO PURSUE

ITS NUCLEAR AGENDA.

SENATE REPUBLICANS WERE

HOPING TO PASS A MEASURE

OPPOSING THE DEAL, BUT IT

LOOKS UNLIKELY THAT THE

SENATE WILL GET TO VOTE AT

ALL.

DICK CHENEY SAYS THE IRAN

DEAL WILL ONLY ALLOW IRAN

TO GROW MORE DANGEROUS.

APPROVAL OF THIS

AGREEMENT WILL NOT PREVENT

A NUCLEAR IRAN, ALONG WITH

A PATHWAY TO A NUCLEAR

ARSENAL, THEY HAVE PLACED

ON THE TABLE FOR

CONGRESSIONAL REVIEW, A

DEAL THAT PROVIDES WEAPONS

AND FUNDS TO A REGIME THAT

HAS PLEDGED TO DESTROY

ISRAEL AND MAINTAINS DEATH

TO AMERICA AS A CENTRAL

PILLAR OF ITS POLICIES.

HE SAYS THE DEAL WILL

ALLOW IRAN TO OBTAIN THE

FUNDING TO SUPPORT

TERRORISM AND PURSUE THEIR

GOAL OF DESTROYING ISRAEL.

> NAGHMEH ABEDINI, THE

WIFE OF PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI IS CALLING FOR

FASTING AND PRAYER ON

BEHALF OF HER HUSBAND AND

THE PERSECUTED CHURCH.

PASTOR SAEED IS SERVING AN

EIGHT YEAR SENTENCE IN

IRAN FOR HIS CHRISTIAN

FAITH.

NAGHMEH SAYS SHE WILL BE

FASTING FROM PLEASANT

FOODS, AS IN THE DANIEL

FAST.

THE SCRIPTURE FOR THIS

FAST IS HEBREWS 12: 12,

ADDING: "THE LORD IS

SHOWING ME AS WE PRAY FOR

SAEED AND THE PERSECUTED

CHURCH, REVIVAL CAN BE

BROUGHT INTO OUR OWN LIFE

AND INTO OUR COUNTRY."

HILLARY CLINTON IS

ISSUING HER FIRST APOLOGY

FOR USING A PRIVATE E-MAIL

SERVER TO CONDUCT

GOVERNMENT BUSINESS.

I'M SORRY ABOUT THAT.

I TAKE RESPONSIBILITY.

I DID NOT SEND OR RECEIVE

ANY INFORMATION THAT WAS

MARKED CLASSIFIED AT THE

TIME.

BUT NOW THAT GOVERNMENT

OFFICIALS HAVE HAD A

CHANCE TO LOOK AT THE

E-MAILS CLINTON WAS

SENDING, AT LEAST 125 OF

THEM HAVE BEEN RULED AS

CLASSIFIED.

THE F.B.I. IS EXAMINING

CLINTON'S PRIVATE E-MAIL

SERVER, BUT CLINTON SAYS

THERE IS NO CRIMINAL

INVESTIGATION.

HER APOLOGY CAME IN AN

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH

ABC NEWS, AND IT COMES AS

A NEW UNIVERSITY POLL

SHOWS CLINTON IS DOWN 10

POINTS SINCE LAST MONTH.

THE NUMBER APPEARS TO

REFLECT THE PUBLIC'S

CONCERN OVER THE E-MAIL

SCANDAL.

> COMING UP, EXPLOSIVE

CHURCH GROWTH IN AN

UNLIKELY PLACE.

SEE WHY CHRISTIANITY HAS

THRIVED IN COMMUNIST CUBA,

AFTER THIS.

Caitlin: CUBA HAS

BEEN DOMINATED BY

COMMUNISM FOR MORE THAN 50

YEARS.

BUT MANY PEOPLE HAVE

WONDERED HOW STRONG WAS

THE CHURCH IN CUBA DURING

THOSE DECADES?

NOW WE'RE LEARNING THAT IT

DID AMAZINGLY WELL,

DESPITE DIFFICULT TIMES,

AND THE HARDSHIP IT HAS

SUFFERED HAS PAVED THE WAY

FOR AN EXPLOSION OF CHURCH

GROWTH TODAY.

HEATHER SELLS BRINGS US

THAT STORY FROM HAVANA.

Heather: ON A TYPICAL

SUNDAY MORNING IN CUBA,

YOU'LL FIND CHURCH CROWDS

OVERFLOWING AROUND THE

ISLAND.

MANY ARE HOUSE CHURCHES,

MEETING IN REMODELED

LIVING ROOMS.

OTHERS LOOK LIKE YOUR

TYPICAL CHURCH, WITH ONE

BIG DIFFERENCE: POLITICAL

RESTRICTIONS.

FAITH IS AN ISSUE FOR SO

MANY CUBAN CHURCHES.

FOR THIS PARTICULAR

CHURCH, THE GOVERNMENT

WILL NOT SELL IT MORE LAND

AND IT IS GROWING, SO IT

HAS BEEN FORCED TO BUILD

UP.

ON THE UPPER LEVELS,

YOU'LL FIND SUNDAY SCHOOL

ROOMS PLUS FOUR SPILL-OVER

AREAS TO WATCH THE SUNDAY

SERVICE.

WHEN YOU HAVE 80 80 PEOPLE

TO 100 PEOPLE IN AN

APARTMENT, IT IS HARD, AND

PEOPLE GET UPSET.

Reporter: THEY ARE

NOW MEETING IN THE YARD

SINCE IT NO LONGER FITS

INSIDE.

IT IS FUELED BY INCREDIBLE

GROWTH AND GOVERNMENT

RESTRICTIONS.

IN THE PAST 20 YEARS, MORE

THAN 16,000 EVANGELICAL

CHURCHES HAVE OPENED THEIR

DOORS.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT

HAS MADE US GROW IN FAITH

HAS BEEN THE LIMITATIONS

AND THE DIFFICULTIES.

Heather: PASTOR

NESTOR AND HIS WIFE, ROSA,

LIVE IN ONE ROOM ABOVE

THEIR TINY CHURCH.

DURING SUNDAY SERVICES AND

WEEKDAY SERVICES, ONLY FEW

WILL HAVE A REAL SEAT.

PEOPLE HERE DON'T CARE

HOW COMFORTABLE THEY ARE.

THEY CAN BE EXHAUSTED FROM

WORKING ALL DAY, AND

THEY'LL SIT ON A BAG OF

ROCKS, A STITCHED UP

CHAIR, OR STAND THE WHOLE

SERVICE, AND THEY'RE OKAY

WITH THAT.

Heather: CUBAN CHURCH

LEADERS SAY EVENTS, LED BY

THE FALL OF THE SOVIET

UNION, SPARKED THE CURRENT

CHURCH-PLANTING EXPLOSION.

WHEN THE RUSSIAN

GOVERNMENT COLLAPSED, CUBA

WENT THROUGH A LOT, AND

PEOPLE STARTED LOOKING TO

CHURCHES FOR HOPE.

Heather: AT THE SAME

TIME, THE GOVERNMENT ENDED

ITS ATHEISTIC PHILOSOPHY

AND DECLARED ITSELF A

SECULAR STATE, LEAVING AN

ENTIRE NATION TO QUESTION

WHAT IT BELIEVED.

A GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL

SUGGESTED THAT CHURCHES

UNABLE TO OBTAIN BUILDING

PERMITS MEET IN HOMES.

THAT SPARKED A MOVEMENT

SIMILAR TO EARLY CHURCH

GROWTH IN THE BOOK OF

ACTS.

PASTOR FRANCISCO IS ONE OF

THOUSANDS OF CUBAN HOUSE

CHURCH PASTORS WHO FOLLOW

THE GOSPEL WITH TREMENDOUS

PASSION.

WE HAVE EVANGELIZED

EVERYONE WHO LIVES IN THIS

AREA.

A NEW TESTAMENT BIBLE TO

EACH HOME.

WE CAN'T STOP, WE WON'T

STOP, BECAUSE EVEN IF THEY

WON'T ACCEPT THE LORD THE

FIRST, SECOND, THIRD, OR

FOURTH TIME, EVEN SO WE

CAN'T STOP UNTIL THEY COME

TO THE LORD.

Heather: THE GROWTH

OF THE CHURCH HERE IS EVEN

MORE MIRACULOUS GIVEN THE

COUNTRY'S POVERTY.

THE AVERAGE SALARY IS $20

A MONTH, AND PROFESSIONALS

TYPICALLY MAKE LESS THAN

$50.

STILL, CUBAN CHURCHES ARE

KNOWN FOR THEIR

GENEROSITY.

WHAT WE HAVE, WE WANT

TO SHARE WITH OTHERS.

WHAT WE HAVE, NOT WHAT WE

HAVE LEFT OVER.

Heather: ANOTHER

OBSTACLE CUBAN CHURCHES

FACE IS SPIRITUAL WARFARE

IN THE FORM OF SANTARIA.

IT IS A BLEND OF WEST

AFRICAN RELIGIONS.

THIS IS A WOODED AREA IN

HAVANA WHERE THOSE

PRACTICING SANTARIA LIKE

TO COME.

THEY WILL PERFORM RITUAL

CLEANSINGS IN THE RIVER

HERE AND OFFER SACRIFICES

ON THIS ROCK.

DURING ONE SUNDAY WORSHIP,

A SANTARIA GROUP STOOD

OUTSIDE THE CHURCH,

BEATING THEIR DRUMS.

IT WAS KIND OF LIKE A

SPIRITUAL FACEOFF.

THE CHURCH JUST STARTED

PRAYING, AND THEN WE

PRAYED FOR RAIN, AND ALL

OF A SUDDEN THERE WAS

THUNDER, SO THEY HAD TO

LEAVE.

Heather: CHURCH

LEADERS SAY THEY'RE

ENJOYING A NEW SEASON OF

RELAXED RESTRICTIONS.

IT IS EASIER TO EVANGELIZE

OUTSIDE THE CHURCH, AND

THEY RECEIVED MORE PERMITS

TO HOLD SPECIAL EVENTS.

STILL, MOST CHURCHES

CANNOT EXPAND OR BUY LAND.

THEY CANNOT PRODUCE

CHRISTIAN RADIO OR

TELEVISION SHOWS.

AND THEY MUST WORK AROUND

A DYSFUNCTIONAL ECONOMY.

REMODELING PLANS AT PASTOR

NESTENESTER'S CHURCH ARE OLD

INDEFINITELY UNTIL THEY

CAN OBTAIN MUCH-NEEDED

CEMENT.

SOMETIMES WITHOUT

SUFFERING, THERE IS NO

CHALLENGE.

AND WITHOUT THAT

CHALLENGE, THERE IS NO

VICTORY.

Heather: REPORTING IN

HAVANA, CUBA, HEATHER

SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Caitlin: UP NEXT, "90

MINUTES IN HEAVEN," GO

BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE

NEW FILM, AND FIND OUT WHY

YOU'LL WANT TO GET TO THE

THEATER THIS WEEKEND.

Caitlin: IN TODAY'S

EDITION OF FAMILY

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS, MOVIE

GOING AUDIENCES HAVE

PROVEN THAT THE MARKET FOR

FAITH-BASED FILMS IS

STRONG.

NOW THIS WEEKEND ANOTHER

MAJOR MOVIE IS OPENING.

BASED ON A BEST-SELLING

BOOK ABOUT A MA MAN WHO DIED

AND CAME BACK FROM HEAVEN.

ANGELA ZATOPEK BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Reporter: CURIOSITY

ABOUT THE AFTERLIFE SEEMS

STRONGER THAN EVER IN

BOOKS, TV, AND THE MOVIES.

HOLLYWOOD TOOK NOTICE

AFTER THE FILM "HEAVEN IS

FOR REAL," BRU REAL," BROUGHT IN MORE

THAN $100 MILLION AT THE

BOX OFFICE.

NOW IT HOPES THEATER-GOERS

WANT MORE.

SELLING OVER SEVEN MILLION

COPIES AND TRANSLATED INTO

46 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES,

DON PIPER WROTE ON THIS

EXPERIENCE AFTER DEATH IN

HIS BOOK "90 MINUTES IN

HEAVEN".

26 YEARS LATER, THIS STORY

COMES TO LIFE ON THE BIG

SCREEN.

EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE, I

ASK THE SAME QUESTION: O

LORD, WHY DID YOU LET ME

SEE HEAVEN AND TAKE IT

AWAY?

Reporter: ACTOR

HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN FROM

"STAR WARS,STAR WARS," PLAYS DON.

I HOPE PEOPLE WILL

LEAVE THIS FILM FEELING

UPLIFTED AND FEELING

BETTER ABOUT LIFE, AS I

DID WHEN I PUT DOWN THE

SCRIPT THE FIRST TIME.

Reporter: KATE

BOSWORTH PLAYS HIS WIFE,

EVA, WHO PIPE HER CALLS

THE REAL HERO BECAUSE SHE

KEPT THE FAMILY TOGETHER.

THIS IS ONE OF THOSE

STORIES THAT HAS THE

POSSIBILITY OF CHANGING

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

Reporter: JASON

KENNEDY ALSO APPEARS IN

THE FILM AS DON'S BEST

FRIEND.

PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW

THAT THERE IS MORE TO LIFE

THAN JUST WHAT IS

HAPPENING RIGHT HERE.

Reporter: THE FILM

SHOWS HOW A HEAD-ON

COLLISION CHANGED PIPER'S

LIFE FOREVER.

HIS BODY MANGLED,

EMERGENCY WORKERS DECLARED

HIM DEAD SHORTLY AFTER

GETTING TO THE SCENE.

AS CHRISTIAN PASTOR DICK

HONERWRECKER PASSED THE

WRECKAGE, HE FELT LED BY

GOD TO PRAY FOR DON.

AND PIPER SUDDENLY STARTED

SINGING AND CAME BACK TO

LIFE.

A TOTAL OF 90 MINUTES HAD

ELAPSED.

DURING THAT TIME, HE SAYS

HE VISITED HEAVEN.

I SAW COLORS I'VE NEVER

SEEN BEFORE.

I HEARD THE MUSIC --

THOUSANDS OF SONGS AT THE

SAME TIME WITHOUT CHAOS.

ONLY ONE SONG

DISTINGUISHED ITSELF AMONG

ALL OF THOSE, AND THAT WAS

"HOLY, HOLY, HOLY."

Reporter: THE FILM

RELEASES SEPTEMBER 11th,

SHOWING THE POWER OF

PRAYER AND THE MIRACLE

THAT HAS TOUCHED HEARTS

AROUND THE WORLD.

I DISCOVERED MY PURPOSE

IS TO TELL YOU: GOD STILL

ANSWERS PRAYERS.

AND GOD STILL PERFORMS

MIRACLES.

Reporter: AS WE SAW

FROM "WAR ROOM," MOVIES

LIKE THIS HAVE BEEN DOING

REALLY WELL IN THE BOX

OFFICES.

BE SURE TO GO AND CHECK

THIS ONE OUT.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Caitlin: MANY CANCER

PATIENTS EXPERIENCE

EXTREME EXHAUTION FROM

THEIR TREATMENT.

THIS FATIGUE IS ESPECIALLY

DIFFICULT FOR WOMEN

RESPONSIBLE FOR RUNNING A

HOME.

BUT AS LORI JOHNSON TELLS

US, MANY ARE GETTING HELP

WITH THE HOUSEWORK FOR

FREE.

Lori: DESPITE HER

OVARIAN CANCER, STACEY

RESOLVED TO BE STRONG FOR

HER CHILDREN.

WHATEVER ENERGY I HAD,

I NEEDED TO USE TO KEEP

THEIR LIVES NORMAL AND

CONSISTENT WITH THE

ROUTINES THEY WERE

NORMALLY USED TO.

AND, OF COURSE, WHEN THEY

WENT TO SCHOOL, BACK IN

BED I WENT.

AND JUST DIDN'T MOVE UNTIL

IT WAS TIME WHEN THEY GOT

HOME.

Lori: CANCER

TREATMENT, ESPECIALLY

CHEMOTHERAPY, DRAINS YOUR

ENERGY, SOMETIMES FOR

WEEKS ON END.

MANY WOMEN DON'T EVEN HAVE

THE STRENGTH TO CLEAN

THEIR HOMES.

NOW THEY'RE GETTING HELP.

FREE MAID SERVICE ONCE A

MONTH FOR FOUR MONTHS, AN

IDEA THAT GREW FROM ONE

DALLAS CLEANING BUSINESS.

SO I DID IT AS A

COMPANY POLICY FOR MANY,

MANY YEARS.

AND THEN FAST FORWARD

YEARS LATER, I TURNED THAT

COMPANY POLICY INTO A

NON-PROFIT.

AND NOW WE HAVE MAID

SERVICES ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY THAT ARE DONATING

FREE HOUSE CLEANING TO

WOMEN WITH CANCER.

Lori: OVER A THOUSAND

CLEANING SERVICES FROM ALL

50 STATES ARE ON BOARD.

YOU KNOW, A LOT OF

TIMES PATIENTS DON'T WANT

TO HAVE FAMILY CLEAN THEIR

HOME.

THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE

THEIR BEST FRIEND COME

CLEAN THEIR HOME.

HAVING A STRANGER

SOMETIMES DO THAT IS A

LITTLE BIT EASIER.

Lori: SO FAR 15,000

WOMEN HAVE RECEIVED THIS

GIFT.

MY WHOLE WORLD CHANGED

JUST KNOWING I COULD COUNT

ON THEM.

Lori: CANCER PATIENTS

OR CLEANING SERVICES THAT

WOULD LIKE TO GET INVOLVED

CAN FIND A LINK TO THE

"CLEANING FOR A REASON"

WEBSITE AT cbnnews.com.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Caitlin: FINALLY

TODAY, FLOOD VICTIMS IN

GUATEMALA RECEIVED

MUCH-NEEDED ASSISTANCE

FROM CBN.

OVER 1700 PEOPLE WERE

DISPLACED AFTER HEAVY

RAINS CONTRIBUTED TO THE

OVERFLOWING OF TWO RIVERS

AND THE AREA.

CBN PARTNERED WITH THE

LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND

CHURCHES TO PROVIDE FOOD,

WATER, CLOTHING, MEDICAL

CARE AND PRAYER.

CHILDREN WERE EVEN ABLE TO

ENJOY WATCHING "SUPERBOOK"

EPISODES.
