Efrem: TODAY ON

"NEWSWATCH," ELECTION

DRAMA.

WE WILL BREAK DOWN THE

LATEST AS PRESIDENTIAL

HOPEFULS FIGHT TO BE THE

NEXT LEADER OF THE UNITED

STATES.

> PLUS, WE'LL TAKE YOU

TO THE JIHAD CAPITAL OF

EUROPE, WHERE TERRORISTS

HIDE IN BROAD DAYLIGHT.

> AND "SUPERBOOK"

TED CRUZ FACES PRESSURE

OVER HIS NEW YORK VALUES

COMMENT.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Charlene: DEMOCRATIC

FRONT-RUNNER AND BERNIE

SANDERS ARE CLASHING OVER

THIS COMMENT FROM SANDERS.

QUESTIONING WHETHER OR NOT

SHE IS READY TO BE

PRESIDENT.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT

SHE IS QUALIFIED --

WELL, THAT'S KIND OF A

SILLY THING TO SAY.

Reporter: THE

CONTROVERSY BEGAN LATE

WEDNESDAY WHEN SANDERS

DISCUSSED CLINTON'S

SUITABILITY FOR THE WHITE

HOUSE AND ISN'T LETTING

UP.

BUT IT HASN'T BEEN THE

ONLY CLASH ON THE

DEMOCRATIC SIDE OF THE

TRAIL.

FORMER PRESIDENT BILL

CLINTON'S SPEECH WAS

REPEATEDLY INTERRUPTED BY

PROTESTORS FROM "BLACK

LIVES MATTER."

FOR NEARLY 15 MINUTES,

CLINTON EXCHANGED WORDS

WITH PROTESTOR -- WHO

OBJECTED TO THE 1994

CRIMINAL JUSTICE LAW HE

PUT INTO LAW.

HE DEFENDED HIS WIFE'S USE

OF THE PHRASE SUPER

PREDATORS IN A 1994

SPEECH.

NO.

I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU WOULD

CHARACTERIZE THE GANG

LEADERS WHO GOT

13-YEAR-OLD KIDS HOPPED UP

ON CRACK AND SENT THEM OUT

ON TO THE STREETS TO

MURDER OTHER

AFRICAN-AMERICAN CHILDREN.

Charlene: ON THE

REPUBLICAN SIDE, DONALD

TRUMP IS CALLING HIS

RIVAL, TED CRUZ, LYING

TED.

AND MAKING SURE HIS FELLOW

NEW YORKERS DON'T FORGET

CRUZ'S REMARKS ABOUT NEW

YORK VALUES IN A G.O.P.

DEBATE A FEW MONTHS AGO.

YOU REMEMBER DURING THE

DEBATE WHEN HE STARTED

LECTURING ME ON NEW YORK

VALUES, LIKE WE'RE NO

GOOD.

Charlene: CRUZ

DEFENDED HIS COMMENTS.

PEOPLE OF NEW YORK KNOW

EXACTLY WHAT THOSE VALUES

ARE.

THEY ARE THE VALUES OF

LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC

POLITICIANS, LIKE ANDREW

CUOMO, LIKE ELLIOT

SPENCER, LIKE CHARLIE

WRANGLE.

Charlene: MEANWHILE A

NEW POLL SHOWS SEVEN IN 10

AMERICANS, INCLUDING MANY

REPUBLICAN VOTERS, HAVE A

NEGATIVE VIEW OF DONALD

TRUMP.

TED CRUZ HOPES HIS RECENT

WIN GIVES HIM THE MOMENTUM

AHEAD OF HIS VOTE ON

APRIL 19th IN NEW YORK.

BUT TRUMP IS EXPECTED TO

WIN THERE.

AND AMONG THE DEMOCRATS,

SAPTDSANDERS IS HOPING TO GET

ENOUGH VOTES TO SHOOT FOR

A CONTESTED CONVENTION ON

THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE.

IT LOOKS LIKE NEITHER SIDE

IS GOING TO LET UP IN ITS

NASTY COMPAIGNS IN THE

PRIMARIES OF 2016.

Efrem: THE ACLUCH ACLU OF

IND ININDIANA IS CONTESTING THE

ABORTION LAW.

IT PROHIBITS ABORTION ON

THE BASIS OF RACE OR SEX.

PRO-LIFE GOVERNOR MIKE

PENCE SAYS IT PROVIDES

PROTECTION FOR THE UNBORN.

I BELIEVE THIS IS

COMPREHENSIVE PRO-LIFE

LEGISLATION THAT ENSURED

THAT EXPECTANT MOTHERS HAD

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

ABOUT THEIR UNBORN CHILD.

IT PROVIDED ADDITIONAL

PROTECTS FOR THE UNBORN

AND FOR THE DIGNIFIED

TREATMENT OF THE FINAL

REMAINS OF THE UNBORN.

Efrem: INDIANA IS THE

SECOND STATE TO CREATE

SUCH A LAW.

> A GROWING NUMBER OF

POLITICIANS, CORPORATIONS,

AND CELEBRITIES ARE

BLASTING THE STATES OF

MISSISSIPPI AND NORTH

CAROLINA FOR WHAT THEY

CALL DISCRIMINATION LAWS.

MISSISSIPPI'S RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM LAW PROTECTS

CHURCHES AND WEDDING

VENDORS FROM BEING FORCED

TO PARTICIPATE IN GAY

WEDDINGS.

NORTH CAROLINA'S LAW SAYS

GOVERNMENT BATHROOMS

SHOULD BE SEPARATED

PRIMARILY BY BIOLOGICAL

SEX.

IN BOTH STATES LGBT

ACTIVISTS ARE FIGHTING

BACK.

BY RYAN ANDERSON TELLS CBN

NEWS HE IS STILL OPTMISTIC

ABOUT THE FREEDOM OF

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN THE

U.S.

THE REASON BIG BUSINESS

AND PEOPLE HAVE TO TEAM UP

TO GET THE GOVERNORS TO

VETO THEM IS BECAUSE THE

PEOPLE AND THEIR ELECTED

REPRESENTATIVES ARE IN

FAVOR OF THESE BILLS.

IT IS VERY POSSIBLE FOR

GOOD LEGISLATION AND GOOD

PUBLIC POLICY TO BE

PASSED.

WE HAVE TO BE ENCOURAGING

AND SUPPORTING AND

DEFENDING GOOD PUBLIC

POLICY.

Efrem: ANDERSON SAYS

ADVOCATES OF RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY SHOULD EMPHASIZE

THEY SUPPORT DIVERSITIY,

PLURALISM AND TOLERANCE.

> A STATE TROOPER WAS

FIRED FOR EVANGELIZING FOR

CITIZENS ON THE JOB.

HE WAS SUED FOR ASKING THE

DRIVER WHAT CHURCH SHE

ANDED AND IF SHE WAS SAVED

DURING A TRAFFIC STOP.

HE WAS SUED IN 2014 WHEN

HE ASKED A DRIVER ABOUT

HER RELIGIOUS BELIEFS AND

INVITED HER TO CHURCH.

> A CROSS HAS NO PLACE

ON THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY

SEAL.

A JUDGE RULED THAT HAVING

THE CROSS ON THE SEAL IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

THE 1957 SEAL INCLUDED A

CROSS, BUT IT WAS REMOVED

IN 1964 WHEN THE SEAL WAS

REDESIGNED WITHOUT A SEAL.

THE JUDGE RULED ADDING THE

CROSS PLACES THE COUNTY'S

POWER, PRESTIGE, AND PURSE

BEHIND A SINGLE RELIGION,

CHRISTIANITY, AND THAT IT

IS IN VIOLATION OF THE

CONSTITUTION.

THE COUNTY SEAL IS USED ON

BUILDINGS, VEHICLES, AND

PUBLICATIONS.

> THE DEPARTMENT OF

HOMELAND SECURITY IS

CHANGING THE WORDING ON

ITS NATURALIZATION TEST

FOR NEW CITIZENS TO MORE

ACCURATELY DESCRIBE THE

RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS ENJOYED

BY AMERICANS.

THE CHANGE COMES ONE YEAR

AFTER JAMES LANGFORD

REQUESTED IT.

IT WILL NOW USE "FREEDOM

OF RELIGION" TO DESCRIBE

THE RIGHTS OF AMERICANS.

WE AS AMERICANS HAVE

FREEDOM OF WORSHIP AND

OTHERS COUNTRIES DON'T

HAVE THAT.

YOU CAN LIVE YOUR FAITH

ANYWHERE YOU WANT TO LIVE

YOUR FAITH, PUBLICLY OR

PRIVATELY.

FOR CITIZENS HAD HEARD OUR

NATION HAD JUST FREEDOM OF

WORSHIP, THEY WILL NOW GET

THE CORRECT INFORMATION

OUT.

THAT WE HAVE SOMETHING YOU

DIDN'T HAVE HAVE IN THE

PAST, AND THAT IS A FREE

EXERCISE OF RELIGION.

Efrem: AND 43

PUBLICATIONS WERE NOW BE

UPDATED.

> CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION

IS ON THE REQUIRES AROUND

THE WORLD.

THE BOMBING OF CHRISTIANS

IN PAKISTAN ON EASTER WAS

ONE OF THE LATEST

EXAMPLES.

A FACTION OF THE TALIBAN

CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY FOR

THAT ATTACK, KILLING MORE

THAN 70 PEOPLE.

"OPEN DOORS" REPORTS

NEARLY 7,000 CHRISTIANS

WERE KILLED FOR THEIR

FAITH LAST YEAR, ALMOST

3,000 MORE THAN 2015.

AND MANY AMERICANS DON'T

UNDERSTAND HOW SERIOUS THE

STATE OF CHRISTIAN

PERSECUTION IS THROUGHOUT

THE WORLD AND IT IS

EXPECTED TO GET WORSE.

JOINING US IS MIKE PETERS

FROM "VOICE OF THE

MARTYRS."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BEING HERE.

YOU'VE MINISTERED TO

PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS IN

40 COUNTRIES.

DO YOU AGREE CHRISTIAN

PERSECUTION IS GETTING

WORSE?

ABSOLUTELY, EFREM.

THERE IS AFRICA,

al-SHABAAB, BOKO HARAM --

IT IS INCREDIBLE HOW

PERSECUTION IS GROWING IN

THESE HOTSPOTS.

Efrem: WHERE HAVE YOU

SEEN THE GREATEST

SUFFERING?

I WOULD PERSONALLY SAY

SUDAN.

SEEING CHRISTIANS WHO ARE

SUFFERING NOT ONLY GREAT

POVERTY, BUT INCREDIBLE

PERSECUTION AND

OPPOSITION.

AND MOST RECENTLY A FEW

WEEKS AGO IN IRAQ, MEETING

WITH VICTIMS AFFECTED BY

ISIS.

Efrem: "VOICES OF THE

MARTYRS" IS SPONSORING A

NEW MOVEMENT.

TELL US ABOUT THIS.

WHERE CHRISTIANS WERE

IN MOSUL, AND FOR 16,000

YEARS, THE CHURCH HAD A

SERVICE EVERY DAY.

WHEN ISIS CAME IN IN 2014,

THEY PAINTED THE ARABIC

SYMBOL FOR CHRISTIANS ON

THEIR DOORS.

AND THEY EITHER HAD TO

CONVERT TO ISLAM, TO PAY

AN EXORBITANT TAX, TO

LEAVE OR BE KILLED.

IN THAT ONE INCIDENT, OVER

100,000 CHRISTIANS WERE

KICKED OUT OF THE NINEVEH

PLAIN.

Efrem: YOU ARE THE

EDITOR OF A BOOK OF 50

STORIES OF CHRISTIANS WHO

FACE PERSECUTION FROM THE

ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS.

TELL US ABOUT SOME OF

THEM.

THERE ARE 48 STORIES,

AND THEY'RE VERY INSPIRING

STORIES.

WHEN YOU READ THESE

STORIES YOU LEARN ABOUT

SACRIFICE, COURAGE,

PERSEVERANCE, AND

FAITHFULNESS.

AND INTERESTING, THERE ARE

SOME SURPRISING THEMES,

LIKE JOY AND FORGIVENESS.

SOME OF OUR BROTHERS AND

SISTERS ARE FACING

OPPOSITION, AND THEY'RE

ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE

INCREDIBLE FORGIVENESS AND

JOY.

GOD IS PROVIDING

INCREDIBLE BRAVERY TO OUR

BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

WE PUT 48 STORIES IN THE

BOOK, AND I'M SURE THEY

WILL INSPIRING MANY

CHRISTIANS HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES TO STAND

STRONG.

WE DON'T KNOW, DO WE,

EFREM, WHAT WE'RE GEG TO GOING TO

FACE HERE IN THE NEXT FEW

YEARS.

Efrem: AND SOME OF

THOSE STORIES INCLUDE

STORIES OF PEOPLE WHO

SUFFERED FROM ISIS?

ABSOLUTELY.

Efrem: WHAT HAVE YOU

LEARNED FROM THE

PERSECUTED CHURCH?

ONE OF THE MOST

POWERFUL THEMES FOR ME

PERSONALLY WAS THE THEME

OF FORGIVENESS.

WE ALL ARE ATTACKED, AND

WE ALL FACE OPPOSITION.

PEOPLE STAB US IN THE

BACK, THEY TALK BEHIND OUR

BACKS, AND THEY MAY WANT

TO HURT US, AND SOME

PEOPLE MAY EXPERIENCE

SERIOUS TRAUMA.

HOW DO WE ALLOW GOD TO

GIVE US THE SUPER NAC NATURAL

ABILITY TO FORGIVE.

WHEN SOMEONE SAYS, THIS

MAN KILLED MY HUSBAND, BUT

I FORGIVE HIM.

THIS MAN SHOT ME IN THE

FACE, AND YET IF I SAW THE

MAN WHO SHOT ME TODAY, I

WOULD EMBRACE HIM AND

FORGIVE HIM.

THAT HAS BEEN THE MOST

REMARKABLE THEME.

Efrem: WHAT CAN OUR

VIEWERS DO TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE?

FIND PRACTICAL WAYS TO

PRAY.

WE NEED TO KNOW OUR

FAMILY.

THEY ARE OUR BROTHERS AND

SISTERS, AND HOW CAN WE

PRAY FOR THEM.

Efrem: THANK YOU SO

MUCH, DR. PETERS.

WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR

TIME.

THANK YOU, EFREM.

Efrem: COMING UP,

RADICAL ISLAM THRIVING IN

THE HEART OF EUROPE.

SEE WHAT MUST BE DONE TO

STOP IT FROM SPREADING.

Efrem: U.S. SECRETARY

OF STATE JOHN KERRY IS

MEETING WITH IRAQI LEADERS

TODAY TO DISCUSS HOW TO

FIGHT ISIS.

IRAQI FORCES HAVE BEEN

MAKING MILITARY GAINS

AGAINST THE ISLAMIC STATE,

INCLUDING RETAKING THE

STRATEGICALLY IMPORTANT

TOWN OF HIT.

THEY DID THAT YESTERDAY.

KERRY'S TRIP COINCIDES

WITH THE PENTAGON

CONSIDERING ADDING MORE

OUTPOSTS TO HELP IRAQI

FORCES RETAKE MOSUL.

IT IS A BREEDING GROUND

FOR TERRORISM, AND IT IS

NOWHERE NEAR THE MIDDLE

EAST.

I'M TALKING ABOUT

BRUSSELS.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

MORE IN THE AFTERMATH OF

THE DEADLY TERRORIST

ATTACK.

Chris: THIS IS THE

BRUSSELS' NEIGHBORHOOD OF

MOLENBEEK.

WITHIN LIES A VIRTUAL

HOTBED OF TERRORISTS.

IT CONNECTED TO LAST

YEAR'S "CHARLIE HEBDO"

ATTACK, AND THE KILLING OF

FOUR PEOPLE AT THE

BRUSSELS JEWISH MUSEUM IN

2014.

MOST OF THE BELGIANS WHO

LEFT TO JOIN ISIS ALSO

CAME FROM MOLENBEEK.

IT LED THIS FRENCH

JOURNALIST TO WRITE,

"INSTEAD OF BOMBING RAQQA,

THE ISIS CAPITAL, THEY

SHOULD BE BOMBING

BRUSSELS."

Chris: IT IS ONE

REASON WHY BRUSSELS HAVE

EARNED THE TITLE OF THE

JIHAD CAPITAL OF

MOLENBEEK.

IT MUST BE VERY

CONFUSING FOR OUTSIDERS,

AND I'VE READ SOMETIMES IN

THE INTERNATIONAL PRESS,

MOLENBEEK IS THE SUBURB OF

BRUSSELS, AND SO PROBABLY

THE IMAGINATION OF THE

AVERAGE AMERICAN VIEWER

PROBABLY IS THINKING OF

THE SUBURB -- WHAT IS THE

SUBURB?

SOMETHING 10, 15 MILES OUT

SIGHOUTSIDE THE CITY'S CENTER.

BUT IT IS ONE MILE FROM

WHAT IS CONSIDERED THE

BRUSSELS CITY CENTER.

Chris: A 20-MINUTE

WALK WOULD TAKE YOU TO THE

MEMORIAL FOR VICTIMS OF

THE VERY ATTACK THAT

ORIGINATED IN THE

NEIGHBOURHOOD.

AND MOLENBEEK IS ONE OF

MANY ISLAMIC NEIGHBORHOODS

SPREAD THROUGHOUT BELGIUM.

WE SOME PLACES OF THE

CITY OF BRUSSELS, LAKAN,

AND OTHER CITIES, SO IT IS

NOT REALLY MOLENBEEK, BUT

MOLENBEEK IS CERTAINLY ONE

OF THE MOST SYMBOLIC AND

REPRESENTATIVE.

Chris: VIVIENNE

TITLEBALM SAYS WHAT WENT

ON IN MOLENBEEK IS AN OPEN

SECRET.

EVERYBODY KNEW WHAT HAD

BEEN GOING ON.

WHAT THE SOCIAL LIS SOCIALIST MAYOR

WAS ALLOWING TO HAPPEN.

THE WAY HE BODES SOCIAL

PEACE WITH SOME MOSQUES

AND IMAMS.

SO, YES, HE ALLOWS FOR

THOSE RADICALS TO EVOLVE

IN THE CONTEXT WHERE THEY

WERE NOT THREATENED BY ANY

MEANS, AND WHERE THEY

COULD DEVELOP THEIR

STRATEGY.

Chris: SHE IS

REFERING TO MOLENBEEK'S

FORMER MAYOR, SOCIALIST

BODRU.

HE HAS TURNED A BLIND

EYE TO THE RADICALIZATION.

AND ANYBODY WHO TRIED TO

ALERT THE PUBLIC TO WHAT

IS GOING ON WAS

IMMEDIATELY SHUT DOWN BY

HIM.

Chris: BUT MOLENBEEK

IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE OF

RADICALIZED NEIGHBORHOODS

THROUGHOUT EUROPE.

IN THOSE PLACES, YOU

HAVE, FIRST, A VERY STRONG

HOMOGENIUS POPULATION.

SO YOU HAVE QUARTERS AND

AREAS, AND NEIGHBORHOODS

THAT ARE ENTIRELY MUSLIM.

THEREFORE, IT IS ALSO

COMMUNITY AFFECT BECAUSE

YOU CAN BLEND IN VERY

EASILY.

AND YOU CAN HIDE, LIKE

SALAH ABDESLAM, WITHOUT

ANY THREAT OF THINGS

LEAKING TO THE OUTSIDE.

Chris: A FRENCH

MINISTER RECENTLY CLAIMED

AT LEAST 100 OF THESE

ENCLAVES EXIST IN FRANCE.

BRUSSELS IS CALLED THE

JIHAD CAPITAL OF EUROPE.

AND I THINK IT IS CORRECT.

BUT YOU CAN ALSO SAY THAT

OF PARTS IN LONDON OR

PARTS IN FRANCE AND PARIS.

YOU HAVE THE SAME.

MARSELLE IS AN EXAMPLE.

BUT MOLENBEEK IS ONE OF

THE WORST CITIES IN

EUROPE.

IT IS A PERFECT PLACE AND

HIDING PLACE FOR JIHADISTS

AND FOR SHAR'IA MUSLIMS TO

MAKE A CALIPHATE, A LITTLE

CALIPHATE THERE.

TODAY WE HAVE CLEAR AND

AN IMMINENT THREAT ON

EUROPE.

Chris: THIS COUNTER-

COUNTER-TERRORISM EXPERT

SAYS THE NUMBERS ADD UP TO

A MASSIVE THREAT.

OFFICIALLY IN EUROPE,

IN THE CITY, WE HAVE

BETWEEN 7,000 AND 10,000

EUROPEAN PEOPLE ALREADY

LINKED TO THE TERRORISTS.

AND TO THOSE PEOPLE, YOU

MUST ADD 5,000 TO 10,000

FOLLOWERS, WHO COULD

RADICALIZE AND BECOME

TERRORISTS TONIGHT OR

TOMORROW MORNING.

THE CHALLENGE TODAY IS

THE BALANCE BETWEEN

SECURITY AND RESPECT OF

OUR VALUES AND FREEDOMS.

HOW DO YOU ORGANIZE A

SOCIETY SO THAT YOU CAN

MAKE THE WORD TO THOSE

RADICALS, AND AT THE SAME

TIME ALLOW PEOPLES TO

CONTINUE THEIR WAY OF

LIFE.

THAT'S THE CHALLENGE TODAY

IN THE FREE WORLD.

Chris: HE SAYS EUROPE

SHOULD SEE BRUSSELS AS A

MINORITY.

IN BELGIUM, WE HAVE 7%

MUSLIMS, BUT IN SOME

CITIES AND AREAS, WE ARE

ALREADY A MINORITY, LIKE

IN MOLENBEEK, FOR EXAMPLE.

AND YOU SEE WHAT IS A

RESULT OF THAT: TERRORISM,

JIHADISM, SHAR'IA LAW

INTRODUCED.

YEAH, SO NEVER BECOME A

MINORITY.

Chris: HE RECOMMENDSp

LISTENING TO FORMER

MUSLIMS.

I KNOW MANY OF THEM,

AND THEY ALL SAY THE SAME:

DON'T LET YOUR COUNTRY

ISLAMIZE BECAUSE ISLAM IS

A VIOLENT IDEOLOGY.

AND THEY CAN KNOW IT

BECAUSE THEY EXPERIENCED

IT.

WHY SHOULDN'T WE BELIEVE

THESE PEOPLE?

WE ALSO BELIEVE FORMER

COMFORTCOMMUNISTS WHO SAID THE

SAME ABOUT COMMUNISTS.

WE SHOULD DO THE SAME FOR

ISLAM, LISTEN TO PEOPLE

WHO EXPERIENCED IT.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, MOLENBEEK,

BRUSSELS.

Efrem: UP NEXT,

"SUPERBOOK'S" GLOBAL

IMPACT, HOW THESE

CHRISTIAN ANIMATIONS ARE

REACHING CHINESE PEOPLE

WITH THE GOSPEL, RIGHT

HERE IN THE UNITED STATES.

Efrem: CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK" PROGRAMS ARE

CHANGING LIVES AROUND THE

WORLD, AND, OF COURSE,

RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA.

WE EXPLAIN HOW A CHINESE

CHURCH RIGHT HERE IN OUR

BACKYARD IS USING

"SUPERBOOK" TO INTRODUCE

PEOPLE TO CHRIST.

WE LOVE "SUPERBOOK"!

Reporter: CHILDREN

FROM FAMILY BIBLE CHURCH

IN VIRGINIA BEACH CAN'T

WAIT TO GO TO CHURCH ON

SUNDAYS.

BESIDES LEARNING ABOUT

GOD, THEY ARE ALSO EXCITED

TO MEET THEIR FRIENDS.

GIZMO, CHRIS, AND JOY.

MOST MEMBERS OF THE

CONGREGATION ARE CHINESE.

RENEE ROBERTS IS THE

SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER.

SHE EXPLAINS "SUPERBOOK"

BROUGHT MANY KIDS TO HER

CLASS AND OFFERS MORE THAN

JUST STORIES.

ANIMATION CONNECTS WITH

THESE CHILDREN LIKE NO

OTHER MEDIUM CAN.

THEY'RE ABLE TO REALLY

GRASP BIBLICAL TRUTH WHEN

THEY CAN CONNECT WITH

CHRIS AND JOY AND GIZMO

WEEK AFTER WEEK AFTER

WEEK.

AND THEY'RE LEARNING

PRINCIPLES THAT WE TEACH

THROUGH, OF COURSE, THE

BIBLE, BUT THEY'RE ABLE TO

REALLY MAKE IT COME TO

LIFE, IN THEIR MINDS, WHEN

THEY SEE IT ON

"SUPERBOOK."

Reporter: FANG WANG

IS THE SENIOR PASTOR OF

THE CHURCH.

HE WAS SURPRISED TO SEE

HOW MUCH THE CHILDREN

LEARNED FROM "SUPERBOOK."

TODAY IN MY CLASS, I

WAS ASKING SOME QUESTIONS

ABOUT THE RESURRECTION,

AND THEY WERE ABLE TO GIVE

ME SOME REALLY GOOD

ANSWERS.

AND WHEN I ASKED THEM,

WHERE DO YOU LEARN THESE

THINGS FROM, THEY SAID

FROM "SUPERBOOK."

Reporter: AS FAMILIES

ARE HAPPY TO SEE THEIR

CHILDREN WATCHING

"SUPERBOOK" WHILE LEARNING

ABOUT GOD.

MEANWHILE, "SUPERBOOK"

BROUGHT THEM TO CHURCH AS

WELL.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

"SUPERBOOK" ALSO TEACHES

ME A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE IN

THE BIBLE THAT MY CHILD

SHARED WITH ME.

IT ENCOURAGES ME TO GO TO

CHURCH WITH MY FAMILY TO

KNOW THE WORD OF GOD

DEEPER AND DEEPER.

Reporter: THIS WOMAN

WENT TO CHURCH AND HER

HUSBAND IS NOT A

CHRISTIAN, AND SHE PRAYS

"SUPERBOOK" WOULD ALSO

TOUCH HIS HEART.

Through Translator:

EVERY TIME I WATCH IT, I

BELIEVE "SUPERBOOK"

TEACHES ME AND MY SON

SOMETHING KNEW ABOUT

CHRIST.

I WILL CONTINUE TO SEEK

GOD, AND AT THE SAME TIME,

I WILL NOT GIVE UP ON MY

HUSBAND.

Reporter: FAMILY AND

TEACHERS ARE ALSO EXCITED

ABOUT THE "SUPERBOOK"

ACADEMY.

THEY ARE LOOKING FORWARD

TO USING THE ONLINE

CURRICULUM TO DISCOVER

MORE BIBLICAL TRUTHS AND

GROW STRONGER IN THEIR

WALK WITH THE LORD.

Efrem: IT IS AMAZING

TO SEE ALL OF THE GREAT

WORK THAT "SUPERBOOK"

DOES.

IT IS, OF COURSE, MADE FOR

CHILDREN, BUT IT REACHES

US ADULTS AS WELL.

> STAY WITH US, WE'RE

COMING RIGHT BACK WITH

MORE CBN "NEWSWATCH."

Efrem: AND FINALLY

THIS FRIDAY, IT IS TIME

FOR YOUR FRIDAY FAITHFUL.

THIS THOUGHT OCCURRED TO

ME BY LISTENING TO JACOB.

THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF HIM

WALKING WITH A LIMP, AND

THAT LIMP IS A REMINDER OF

GOD'S BLESSING OF

DELIVERANCE.

BATTLE SCARS ARE A

REMINDER OF THE BATTLE,

BUT THE FACT YOU'RE ALIVE

TO SEE THEM SPEAKS TO

GOD'S BLESSING OF SURVIVAL

AND VICTORY.

SO WALK IN VICTORY TODAY.

GOD HAS INDEED GIVEN IT TO

YOU.
