On CBN Newswatch, Sept. 22: What Walker's departure means for GOP field; Hillary rebounds in polls as Biden still uncertain; Senate expected to vote on late-abortion ban; and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: TODAY ON

"NEWSWATCH," GOVERNOR

SCOTT WALKER IS OUT OF THE

PRESIDENTIAL RACE.

WHY HE IS LEAVING AND WHAT

IS AHEAD FOR THE OTHER

REPUBLICAN CONNDERS.

PLUS, SOME LOVE POPE

FRANCIS, AND OTHERS ARE

INFURIATED BY HIM.

AS HE COMES TO THE UNITED

STATES.

AND...

WHILE I'M DOING IT, I'M

REALLY PRAYING FOR THE

PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO

EAT THIS CHEESE.

I KNOW EVERY FAMILY, EVERY

PERSON, HAS PROBLEMS.

Efrem: THE SIMPLE

SECRET BEHIND THE SUCCESS

OF THESE GOUDA NUNS.

> THANKS SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

A ONCE RISING STAR OF THE

G.O.P. PRESIDENTIAL PACK

IS NOW OUT AND THE FIELD

IS SCRAMBLING TO REALIGN.

ON THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE,

HILLARY CLINTON FACES AN

UNEXPECTANTLY STRONG

CHALLENGER, AND THE

MYSTERY OF ONE WAITING IN

THE WINGS.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THIS

STORY.

IN THE END, I BELIEVE

THAT THE VOTERS WANT TO BE

FOR SOMETHING AND NOT

AGAINST SOMEONE.

Heather: JUST THIS

SUMMER WISCONSIN GOVERNOR

SCOTT WALKER LED THE

REPUBLICAN FIELD IN IOWA.

ON MONDAY, HE CALLED IT

QUITS AND SUGGESTEDHAT

SOMEONE COULD EMERGE FROM

A SMALLER POOL OF

CANDIDATES WITH A CLEAR

CONSERVATIVE ALTERNATIVE

TO THE CURRENT

FRONT-RUNNER DONALD TRUMP.

I BELIEVE I'M BEING

CALLED TO LEAD BY HELPING

TO CLEAR THE FIELD IN THIS

RACE SO THAT A POSITIVE,

CONSERVATIVE MESSAGE CAN

RISE TO THE TOP OF THE

FIELD.

Heather: BUT WILL

OTHERS DROP OUT SO THAT IT

CAN BUILD AROUND AN

ALTERNATIVE TO TRUMP?

NONE ARE EXPECTED TO DO SO

ANY TIME SOON.

IN FACT, THEY'RE ALL

SCRAMBLING OVER THE WALKER

CAMPAIGN ASSETS.

SOME BELIEVE MARCO RUBIO

WILL BENEFIT THE MOST.

THEY'RE BOTH CONSIDERED

FRESH FACES WITH

NEXT-GENERATION APPEALS.

LATE MONDAY, WALKER WAS

ALREADY WELCOMING RUBIO TO

HIS TEAM.

AND BEN CARSON IS LEADING

THE PRESIDENTIAL PACK,

WITH RUBIO AND JEB BUSH IN

THIRD AND FOURTH PLACE.

HILLARY CLINTON IS

BATTLING A STRONG

CHALLENGE FROM SOCIALIST

BERNIE SANDERS, AND

WAITING TO SEE IF JOSEPH

BIDEN DECIDES TO ENTER THE

RACE.

THINGS WORK BETTER WHEN

A DEMOCRAT IS IN THE WHITE

HOUSE.

Heather: HER LATEST

PLAN IS TO NOT REPEAL

OBAMACARE, BUT TO IMPROVE.

VOTERS HAVE NEVER HAD SO

MANY CANDIDATES TO

CONSIDER.

BUT WHETHER ANY OF THEM

WILL FOLLOW WALKER'S

ADVICE AND LEAD BY FALLING

BACK IS UNLIKELY FOR NOW.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE WHITE

HOUSE IS ATTACKING

REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE BEN

KAR FOCARSON FOR HIS CONCERNS

WITH ISLAM.

HE SAYS HE DOES NOT

BELIEVE ISLAM IS

COMPATIBLE WITH A U.S.

CONSTITUTION.

AND CARSON IS RIGHT TO BE

CONCERNED BECAUSE ISLAM

HAS ITS OWN SYSTEM OF

LAWS, CALL SHAR'IA.

SHAR'IA LAW IS

FUNDAMENTALLY INCOMPATIBLE

WITH THE U.S.

CONSTITUTION.

AND IF YOU HAVE SOMEONE

RUNNING FOR OFFICE, TRYING

TO ASSUME THE HIGHEST

OFFICE IN THE LAND, WHO IS

SHAR'IA COMPLIANT, WHO

FOLLOWS THE TENENTS OF THE

SHAR'IA LAW, THAT IS

FUNDAMENTALLY INCOMPATIBLE

WITH THE U.S. CONSTITUTION

AND WITH JUDEO-CHRISTIAN

WESTERN CIVILIZATION,

WITHOUT A DOUBT.

Efrem: THE COUNCIL ON

ISLAMIC AMERICAN RELATIONS

IS CALLING ON CARSON TO

QUIT THE ELECTION.

BUT ERICK STAKELBECK

POINTS OUT THEY'RE A

RADICAL GROUP WITH TIES TO

THE BIGGEST FUNDING TRIAL

IN U.S. HISTORY.

> A NEW POLL SHOWS

HILLARY CLINTON IS

BOUNCING BACK FROM A

RECENT COUNT OF PUBLIC

SUPPORT.

A CNN POLL SHOWS 42% OF

DEMOCRATIC VOTERS WOULD

SUPPORT CLINTON IN THE

PRIMARIES.

ONLY 24% STAND WITH

SANDERS, AND 22% WOULD

PICK JOSEPH BIDEN, EVEN

THOUGH HE HAS NOT DECLARED

HE IS RUNNING FOR

PRESIDENT.

CARLY FIORINA IS

CHALLENGING PRESIDENT

OBAMA AND HILLARY CLINTON

TO WATCH THE UPCOVER

VIDEOS OF PLANNED

PARENTHOOD INVOLVEDING THE

BODY PARTS OF UNBORN

BABIES.

CLINTON SAYS SHE HAS SEEN

PARTS OF THE VIDEOS, BUT

SHE IS CRITICIZING THEM

SAYING, QUOTE,"THEY'RE

MISEDITED."

AND SHE IS WILLING TO SHUT

DOWN GOVERNMENT T -- TO SHUT DOWN THE

GOVERNMENT IS JUST THE

HEIGHT OF

IRRESPONSIBILITY.

Efrem: PLANNED

PARENTHOOD GETS MORE THAN

$500 MILLION A YEAR IN

TAXPAYERS' DOLLARS.

> THE U.S. SENATE VOTES

TODAY ON BANNING ABORTION

AFTER 20 WEEKS.

BUT BEFORE THE VOTE COMES,

SENATORS' SPEECHES.

Reporter: SUPPORTERS

OF T UNBORN CHILD

PROTECTION ACT SAYS IT IS

HIGH TIME AMERICA JOIN

MOST OF THE CIVILIZED

WORLD IN BANNING ABORTIONS

AFTER 25 WEEKS.

IT IS APPALLING THAT

THE UNITED STATES IS ONLY

ONE OF SEVEN WHAT ELECTED ELECTED

BORTIONS AFTER 20 WEEKS.

Efrem: MOST

DEMOCRATIC SENATORS ARE

HITTING BACK WITH THE

USUAL WAR ON WOMAN

ACCUSATIONS.

I'M CALLING THIS BILL

WHAT IT IS, AN

UNNECESSARY, UNWARRANTED,

AND LIKELY

UNCONSTITUTIONAL INTRUSION

INTO WOMEN'S PRIVATE

HEALTH CARE DECISIONS.

ANTI-CHOICE GROUPS HAVE

BEEN TRYING TO MAKE IT AS

HARD AS POSSIBLE, BIT BY

BIT, PIECE BY PIECE, FOR

WOMEN TO ACCESS SAFE,

LEGAL ABORTION CARE.

Reporter: REPUBLICANS

KEEP BRINGING IT BACK TO

THE BABIES.

OVER 10,000 UNBORN

BABIES, 20 WEEKS OR OLDER,

ARE KILLED IN AMERICA

EVERY YEAR.

LATE-TERM ABORTION

PROCEDURES ARE SO BRUTAL,

IT IS DIFFICULT TO EVEN

TALK ABOUT.

AMERICANS WOULD RIGHTLY

SHRINK IN HORROR FROM

PERFORMING ONE OF THESE

PROCEDURES ON AN ANIMAL.

HOW, THEN, ARE WE ALLOWING

THESE PROCEDURES TO BE

PERFORMED ON OUR CHILDREN?

Reporter: PAUL

STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Efrem: TODAY THE POPE

COMES TO THE UNITED

STATES.

HE IS WRAPPING UP HIS TIME

IN CUBA BY CELEBRATING A

MASS AT ONE OF THE

COUNTRY'S MOST REVERED

SHRINES.

DURING HIS TRIP TO

AMERICA, THE POPE IS

SLATED TO SPEAK TO

CONGRESS AND ALSO VISIT

PHILADELPHIA AND NEW YORK

CITY.

AS AMERICANS GEAR UP FOR

THE PONTIFF'S VISIT, INTO

REPORTS ARE SURFACING

ABOUT A SCHISM BETWEEN THE

POPE AND AMERICAN

CONSERVATIVES.

OUR DALE HURD IS ON THIS

STORY.

Reporter: WHEREVER HE

VITS, POPE FRANCIS SEEMS

TO BE MET BY THRONGS ON

ADORING FAITHFUL.

WE ARE BIG FANS.

OUR PARISH IS VERY FOND OF

HIS SOCIAL JUSTICE

PROGRAM.

POPE FRANCIS, HE

PRESENTS A POSITIVE IMAGE

FOR THE CATC CHURCH.

I LIKE THE OPENNESS

THAT HE BRINGS TO THE

CHURCH.

Reporter: HE HAS

SPOKEN OUT AGAINST THE

EVILS OF CAPITALISM AND

SAYS A REVOLUTION IS

NEEDED TWO FIGHT CLIMATE

CHANGE.

AT TIMES HE HAS SOUNDED

SOFT ON HOMOSEXUALITY.

SO WHEN POPE FRANCIS

VISITS THE U.S., HE WILL

BRING WITH HIM A LOT OF

QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT HE

REALLY BELIEVES, AND IF,

AS REPORTED, A SCHISM IS

GROWG WITHIN THE ROMAN

CATHOLIC CHURCH.

PEOPLE THAT LIKE WHAT

HE SAYS ABOUT THE DEFENSE

OF MARRIAGE AND FAMILY AND

THE BABY IN THE WOMB,

MIGHT NOT BE

ENTHUSIASTICALLY

APPLAUDING WHEN HE OFFERS

RATHER POINTED CRITICISM

OF A MARKET ECONOMY THAT

LEAVES PEOPLE BEHIND.

Reporter: POPE

FRANCIS HAS DELIGHTED SOME

CATHOLICS AND INFURIATED

OTHERS WITH SOME

STRANGE-SOUNDING IDEAS,

LIKE ATHEISTS SHOULD

FOLLOW THEIR CONSCIENCE,

THE QURAN IS AGAINST

VIOLENCE, AND BY PUSHING

LIBERATION THEOLOGY.

BUT DR. ROBERT ROYALS SAYS

POPE FRANCIS IS ACTUALLY

QUITE ORTHODOX ON THE CORE

ISSUES OF HIS FAITH, AND

SOME OF THE WORDS HAVE

BEEN TWISTED BY THE MEDIA,

AND REPORTS OF A SCHISM IN

THE CHURCH ARE EXAGGERATED

MANY.

WHEN YOU GET A FIGURE

LIKE FRANCIS, WHO

ADMITTEDLY IS AMBIVALENT

AT TIMES, IT CAN MAKE IT

LOOK LIKE HE IS ONE THING

OR ANOTHER.

BUT IT IS ABSOLUTELY CLEAR

THAT HE IS ROCK SOLID ON

THE HOT BUTTON ISSUES LIKE

HOMOSEXUALITY AND

ABORTION.

WHEN HE WAS IN ARGENTINA,

IN A PRIVATE LETTER TO A

GROUP OF NUNS, HE TALKED

ABOUT GAY MARRIAGE AS A

SUBTRIFUGE OF THE DEVIL,

TO BLOW UP MARRIAGE IN THE

MODERN WORLD.

Reporter: BUT A

GALLOP POLL THIS YEAR

SHOWED SUPPORT FOR FRANCIS

AMONG THE AMERICAN ROMAN

CATHOLICS HAS FALLEN.

SO IS CONSERVATIVE DESCENT

AGAINST FRANCIS GROWING?

I WOULD SAY YES AND NO.

THE TERMS "CONSERVATIVE

DISSENT BREWING," I DON'T

THINK THAT'S THE RIGHT WAY

TO THINK ABOUT IT.

I THINK ANY CATHOLIC IS

WITH THE POPE.

BUT THAT HAS NEVER MEANT

EVERY CATHOLIC AGREES WITH

THE POPE ABOUT EVERY

SINGLE ISSUE.

IS THERE SOME NERVOUSNESS

ON THE PART OF

CONSERVATIVES, YES.

BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT

FAMILIAR WITH THIS KIND OF

MICS OMIX OF THIS KIND OF SOCIAL

JUSTICE EMPHASIS COMBINED

WITH FIRMNESS ABOUT

TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN

TEACHING.

SO HE IS AN EQUAL

OPPORTUNITY DISTURBER.

WE LISTEN TO SOME THINGS

AND WE SMILE, AN AS WE

LISTEN TO OTHER THINGS HE

SAYS, WE BRISTLE, BUT

JESUS WAS LIKE THAT.

Reporter: DR. ROYALS

SAYS FRANCIS COULD SERVE

AS A BRIDGE, BUT THAT ROLE

MEANS HE IS ALSO LIKELY TO

CONTINUE TO BE A LIGHTNING

ROD FOR CRITICISM FROM

BOTH SIDES.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE IRAQI

CHRISTIAN RELIEF COUNCIL

WELCOMED THE POPE'S VISIT

TO THE U.S. BY HOSTING A

VIGIL FOR PEOPLE OF ISIS.

THEY ARE PRAYING THAT POPE

FRANCIS WILL LEND HIS

VOICE TO THE THOUSANDS OF

VICTIMS SUFFERING

RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION AND

GENOCIDE IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

TOGETHER WITH YOU ALL,

I WELCOME POPE FRANCIS TO

WASHINGTON.

AND I CALL ON HIM AS THE

WORLDWIDE LEADER OF THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH TO LEAD

THE WAY FOR THE BODY OF

CHRIST AROUND THE WORLD IN

SPEAKING OUT FOR THE

PERSECUTED CHURCH AND

OTHER RELIGIOUS

MINORITIES.

Efrem: THE VIGIL

HONORED THE COURAGE OF

THOSE WHO HAVE ENDURED

RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION, AND

IT CALLED FOR CONTINUED

PRAYER FOR THOSE IN THE

MIDDLE EAST BEING KILLED

AND TORTURED FOR THEIR

FAITH.

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT

WE HAVE PEOPLE OF FAITH

STANDING UP FOR, AND

GIVING VOIT, TO THOSE WHO

ARE BEING SILENCED.

I PRAY THE POPE, WHEN HE

IS HERE, WILL SPEAK TO

THIS CRISIS, THAT HE WILL

LEND HIS VOICE IN THIS

FASHION.

Efrem: AND THE POPE

WILL ADDRESS THE

PRESIDENT, CONGRESS,

SENATE, AND RELIGIOUS

LEADERS THROUGHOUT THE

WEEK OF THIS VISIT.

KIM DAVIS COULD BE

HEADING TO COURT AGAIN.

THIS TIME FOR ALTERING

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

LICENSES.

AFTER SPENDING FIVE DAYS

IN JAIL FOR REFUSING TO

ISSUE THEM ALL TOGETHER,

THE KENTUCKY CLERK IS BACK

TO WORK BUT IS GIVING OUT

ALTERED LICENSES.

INSTEAD OF HAVING HER

NAME, THE DOCUMENTS SAY

THEY WERE ISSUED UNDER THE

AUTHORITY OF THE FEDERAL

COURT.

ATTORNEYS FOR FOUR COUPLES

ARE QUESTIONING THE

VALIDITY OF THOSE CHANGES,

ASKING A FEDERAL JUDGE TO

ORDER DAVIS' OFFICE TO

REISSUE THE LICENSES.

> COMING UP, THE

"SUPERBOOK" PHENOMENON,

HOW THIS CUTTING-EDGE

CHRISTIAN ANIMATION IS

CAPTIVATING A NEW

GENERATION FOR THE GOSPEL.

Efrem: CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK" NOW AIRS IN 75

COUNTRIES AROUND THE

WORLD.

AND IT IS ALSO INTRODUCING

THE PLAN OF SALVATION TO A

WHOLE NEW GENERATION OF

CHILDREN RIGHT HERE IN

AMERICA.

TAKE A LOOK.

IN 2009, THE CBN

ANIMATED SERIES

"SUPERBOOK" WAS

RE-RELEASED WITH A NEW

LOOK AND FRESH NEW STORY

LINES.

D GRACE SEE SMIT GRACIE SMITH WAS ONE

OF THE FIRST TO SEE IT.

HER AUNT IS A PRODUCER FOR

"THE 700 CLUB," AND WAS

ASSIGNED TO COVER THE

PREMIER IN DALLAS, TEXAS.

I KNEW MY NIECE,

GRACIE, HAD TO BE THERE TO

SHARE THAT WITH ME.

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

MOVIE, I SAW HOW BRAVE

DAVID WAS.

AND I LEARNED TO BE

FAITHFUL AND BRAVE.

Reporter: AFTER THEIR

PREMIER, BOTH GRACIE AND

AUDRA WERE "SUPERBOOK"

FANS.

I WAS REALLY IMPRESSED

WITH THE QUALITY OF THE

ANIMATION, AND ALSO THE

INTEGRITY WITH WHICH THEY

WERE SHARING THESE BIBLE

STORIES.

BUT I COME TO YOU IN

THE NAME OF THE LORD OF

HOPE.

"SUPERBOOK" TAKES THEM

ON FUN ADVENTURERS AND

THEY TAKE THEM TO THE

PAST

THEY WATCH JESUS PERFORM

MIRACLES, WALKING ON

WATER.

Reporter: AUDRA

EVENTUALLY JOED THE

"SUPERBOOK" CLUB SO SHE

COULD KEEP SHARING THE

BIBLE STORIES WITH GRACIE.

"SUPERBOOK" IS AMAZING

FOR A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT

REASONS: FIRST OF ALL, I

GET A NEW, UPDATED

"SUPERBOOK" EVERY TIME

THEY MAKE ONE.

SECOND OF ALL, I GET THREE

COPIES.

SO AS OUR FAMILY HAS GROWN

THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, I'VE

BEEN ABLE TO SEE MY

YOUNGER BROTHERS' GET THEM

AND I'VE SAVED THEM FOR MY

OWN CHILDREN.

WE GET "SUPERBOOK" FOR

EASTER, BIRTHDAYS,

CHRISTMAS.

SHE WANTS ME TO LEARN MORE

ABOUT GOD.

ONE SUNDAY AFTER

CHURCH, HER SUNDAY SCHOOL

TEACHER STOPPED ME AND

ASKEME HOW SHE KNEW SO

MUCH ABOUT THE BIBLE.

I HAVE TO GIVE "SUPERBOOK"

THE CREDIT.

IT IS THE WORD OF GOD INTO

THEIR HEARTS.

I THINK ONE OF THE MOST

EXCITING "SUPERBOOK"

MOMENTS FOR MY FAMILY IS

WHEN GRACIE BEGAN TO

MEMORIES THE SALVATION SON

AT THE END OF EVERY D.V.D.

* JESUS, YOU DIED UPON THE

CROS AND ROSE AGAIN TO

SAVE US *

IT OPENED UP A LOT OF

CONVERSATION FOR US TO

TALK ABOUT THE PLAN OF

SALVATION.

Reporter: ON NEW

YEAR'S EVE DAY 2013,

GRACIE GAVE HER HEART TO

JESUS AND WAS LATER

BAPTIZED.

I DECIDED TO FOLLOW HIM

AND BE A DISCIPLE OF HIS.

I LOVE GOD VERY MUCH, AND

I WANTED HIM TO BE MY

SAVIOR IN MY LIFE.

I'M JUST AMAZED WHEN I

LOOK AT THE FRUIT THAT

I'VE SEEN IN MY ENTIRE

FAMILY'S LIFE.

AND THESE CARTOONS THAT

WE'RE GETTING ON A MONTHLY

BASIS, I KNOW THEY'RE

HAVING AN ETERNAL IMPACT

ON MY FAMILY.

I'M JUST SO GRATEFUL FOR

THAT.

Efrem: AND YOU CAN

LEARN MORE ABOUT

"SUPERBOOK" BY LOGGING ON

TO CBN.ORG.

> UP NEXT, MEET 13 NUNS

WHO MAKE 20,000 POUNDS OF

CHEESE.

FIND OUT WHAT SECRET

INGREDIENT MAKES THEIR

PRODUCT A SELL-OUT, AFTER

THIS.

Efrem: IT IS A

BUSINESS MODEL YOU WON'T

SEE ANYWHERE ELSE.

13 NUNS WHO MAKE CHEESE,

AND THEY SELL OUT EVERY

YEAR.

SO, WHAT IS THEIR SECRET

INGREDIENT?

HEATHER SELLS TRAVELLED TO

THEIR MONASTERY IN

VIRGINIA TO FIND OUT.

*

Heather: THIS IS THE

HEART OF THIS CLOYSTER

TRAPIS NUN COMMUNITY,

GATHERING FOR WORSHIP AND

PRAYER SEVEN TIMES A DAY,

STARTING AT 3:15 IN THE

MORNING.

AND THIS IS THE CHEESE

BARN, WHERE THE 13 SISTERS

AT "OUR LADY OF THE

ANGELS" MAKE 20,000 POUNDS

OF GOUDA EVERY YEAR.

MOST OF THEIR QUARTER

MILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS IS

MAIL ORDER, ALTHOUGH SOME

LOCAL SHOPS DRIVE OUT

MONTHLY FOR THE CHEESE

THEIR COSTUMERS CRAVE.

IT IS GREAT.

IT IS ON THE MILD SIDE IN

TERMS OF INTENSITY.

IT IS VERY VERSATILE.

Reporter: WHEN THEY

STARTED, THE NUNS KNEW

NOTHING ABOUT HOW TO MAKE

CHEESE.

TODAY THEY CAN LITERALLY

NOT KEEP UP WITH THE

DEMAND FROM FOOD

CONNOISSEURS AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

IT SORT OF SELLS

ITSELF.

PEOPLE GET IT AS A GIFT

AND THEY CALL AND SAY, CAN

I ORDER SOME OF THIS

CHEESE?

Heather: SISTER

BARBARA IS PART OF THE

ORIGINAL SIX WHO WAS SENT

FROM MASSACHUSETTS TO

START ANEWN THIS

GORGEOUS PIECE OF LAND

NEAR CHARLOTSVILLE,

GEORGIA.

THEY BUILD A LIFE BASED ON

PRAYER AND ENGAGE IN

MANUAL LABOR TO SUPPORT

THEMSELVES.

HAPPILY FOR THE SISTERS,

THE PROPERTY THEY BOUGHT

ALREADY HAD A

CHEESE-MAKING FACILITY.

WE WERE SO NAIVE.

WE THOUGHT WE WOULD AS

ASSEMBLE THE CHEESE AND

GET SOME MILK AND MAKE

SOME CHEESE.

Heather: THEY ALLOW

30 DAYS TO MAKE THE GOUDA,

AND EVERYBODY PIMPS IN.

THE 35-YEAR-OLD FROM SPAIN

MUST MANIPULATE SOME 6,000

POUNDS OF PASTURIZED MILK

WITH A LITTLE CULTURE AND

REN IT INTO SEVERAL HAPPEN

WHEELS OF CHEESE.

IT LOOKS EASY, BUT LIKE

ANY GOOD RECIPE, IT IS ALL

ABOUT PRECISION.

GETTING THE CORRECT

TEMPERATURE, CUTTING THE

CURDS AT JUST THE RIGHT

MOMENT, HEATING THEM, AND

DRAINING AWAY, AND FINALLY

PRESSING THE CHEESE.

OVER THE YEARS, THE

SISTERS HAVE NOT ONLY

PERFECTED THEIR TECHNIQUE,

THEY HAVE NEVE BUNGLED A

BATCH.

THAT'S ALMOST UNHEARD OF.

SISTER LINDA IS SIDELINED

FROM THE CHEESE-MAKING

WITH AN INJURY RIG NOW,

BUT SAYS HER FELLOW

SISTERS' ATTENTION TO

DETAIL IS KEY.

A BIG PART OF IT HAS

BEEN THEIR OPENNESS TO

LEARNING AND THEIR

ABSOLUTE DEDICATION TO

DOING IT BETTER.

Heather: THE SISTERS

SAY PRAYER IS ALSO A BIG

PART OF THEIR WORK, FROM

MAKING THE CHEESE TO

SHIPPI IT OUT.

WHILE I'M DOING IT, I'M

REALLY PRAYING FOR THE

PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO

EAT THAT CHEESE.

I KNOW EVERY FAMILY, EVERY

PERSON HAVE PROBLEMS.

FOR EVERY FIVE CHEESE

ORDERS THAT COME IN THE

MAIL, AT LEAST ONE --

MAYBE OUT OF EVERY FOUR,

ONE WILL HAVE A REQUEST

FOR PRAYERS.

Heather: PRAYER IS

ALSO THE REASON THE NUNS

SAY THEY WON'T GROW THEIR

BUSINESS.

PEOPLE WILL COME IN AND

SAY, YOU SOLD OUT LAST

YEAR, SO YOU'RE GOING TO

MAKE MORE NEXT YEAR,

EN'T YOU?

THE PRIORITY IS NOT THE

CHEESE.

THAT'S NOT WHY WE'RE HERE.

Heather: WHAT IS

HAPPENING HERE IS A

SEEKING AFTER THE LORD

THAT IS VISIBLY

DISCERNABLE.

IT IS FUN TO SEE THE

NUNS AND THEY'RE SO KIND

AND MELLOW.

AND IT SORT OF SLOWS YOU

DOWN A BIT.

PEOPLE WHO COME TO THE

DOOR AND WANT TO BUY

CHEESE, THEY ALWAYS WANT

TO KNOW A LITTLE ABOUT OUR

LIFE, SO WE TELL THEM.

AND THEN WE ASK THEM IF

THEY WOULD LIKE TO STOP IN

THE CHA CHAPEL FOR A MOMENT.

Heather: WHEN THEY'RE

NOT MAKING THE CHEESE,

THEY LIKE TO HAVE IT.

MY FAVORITE WAY TO HAVE

IT IS ON A PIECE OF

TOASTED BREAD.

Heather: SO WHAT IS

NEXT FOR THE SISTERS?

NO CHEDDAR OR HAVARTI, IT

IS STRICTLY GOUDA.

AS FOR THEIR NUMBERS, IT

IS CLEAR A NEW GENERATION

IS NEEDED SOME TIME SOON.

THESE WOMEN BELIEVE IF

THEY REMAIN TRUE TO THEIR

CALLING, GOD WILL

REPLENISH THEIR RANKS IN

TIME.

WE'RE HERE TOGETHER

BECAUSE GOD CALLED US

HERE, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

WE ALL FOLLOWED WHAT WE

PERCEIVED TO BE GOD'S CALL

TO US INDIVIDUALLY.

WE NEVER KNEW EACH OTHER

BEFORE, YOU KNOW?

SO IT'S NOT A COINCIDENCE,

BUT PART OF A LARGER PLAN

THAT REMAINS A MYSTERY.

Heather: IT IS A

BEAUTIFUL, HOLY MYSTERY

THAT IS UNFOLDING HERE AS

THE SISTERS SEEK OUT GOD

AND FIND WAYS TO MINISTER

THROUGH SIMPLE, TWO-POUND

WHEELS OF CHEESE.

REPORTING IN CROZ CROZET,

VIRGINIA, HEATHER SELLS,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: EVERY YEAR THE

NUNS SELL OUT OF CHEESE

WELL BEFORE CHRISTMAS.

IF YOU WANT TO BUY SOME

FOR SOME HOLIDAY

GIFT-GIVING, GO TO OUR

WEBSITE, cbn.com, FOR

MORE INFORMATION.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Efrem: TIME NOW FOR

YOUR TUESDAY TWEETABLE,

AND THIS IS HOPE FOR YOU

IN TRYING TIMES AND WHAT

SEEM LIKE UNCERTAIN TIMES.

REMEMBER THIS: UNCHARTERED

WATERS MAY BRING AN

UNINVITED STORM, BUT THE

OUTCOME IS NEVER REALLY

UNCERTAIN WHEN YOUR FAITH

IS ANCHORED IN AN

UNCHANGING GOD.

HE HAS DONE IT BEFORE, AND

HE'LL DO IT AGAIN.

STAND STILL, BE AT PEACE,

AND WATCH HIM WORK.
