George: THIS WEEK ON

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS, AS "

THE WORLD'S 1.6 BILLION

MUSLIMS BEGIN A MONTH OF

"PRAYER, CHRISTIANS ARE"

PRAYING THEY WILL DISCOVER

JESUS CHRIST.

PLUS...

WE WANTED THEM TO PUT

MORE EFFORT IN OF RESCUING

THE CHILDREN.

SOUNDING THE ALARM.

THIS MOM IS REVEALING

DETAILS ABOUT WHAT COULD

HAVE BEEN DONE TO PREVENT

THE KIDNAPPING OF NIGERIAN

GIRLS IN 2014.

> AND...

I HEARD A VERY DISTINCT

VOICE.

"AND I THOUGHT, MANNA,"

WHERE I DID I HEAR THIS

FROM?

George: HOW THIS

WOMAN WAS LED TO BEGIN

FEEDING SOME OF THE

WORLD'S POOREST CITIZENS.

"HELLO, EVERYONE, AND"

WELCOME TO THIS WEEK'S

EDITION OF CHRISTIANS.

"I'M GEORGE THOMAS, AND MY"

"COLLEAGUE, WENDY GRIFFITH"

IS ON ASSIGNMENT.

MUSLIMS AROUND THE WORLD

BEGAN THEIR HOLY MONTH OF

RAMADAN THIS WEEK.

IT IS AN INTENSE TIME OF

"PRAYER AND FASTING,"

LASTING ABOUT 30 DAYS.

OBSERVERS ABSTAIN FROM

"FOOD, DRINK, AND OTHER"

PLEASURES FROM SUNRISE TO

"SUNSET, WITH THE GOAL OF"

PURIFYING THE BODY AND

FOCUSING THE MIND ON

SPIRITUAL PURSUITS.

RAMADAN IS ONE OF THE FIVE

PILLARS OF ISLAM.

AND THEY CHRISTIANS ASK

GOD TO REVEAL THE TRUTH

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST TO

MUSLIMS.

THIS IS A MOMENT TO BE

"PRAYING FOR THEM, THAT GOD"

WOULD BEGIN TO OPEN THEIR

EYES.

AS THEY'RE PRAYING FOR

"FAVOR FROM GOD, THAT GOD,"

"THE GOD OF THE BIBLE,"

WOULD IN FACT GIVE IT AND

REVEALING TO MUSLIMS THE

GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.

"I THINK IN MANY WAYS, THE"

VIOLENCE WE'RE SEEING ON

THE GROUND IN THE MIDDLE

EAST IS THE PHYSICAL

MANIFESTATION OF THE

SPIRITUAL BATTLE FOR SOULS

IN THE MUSLIM WORLD.

THIS IS A TREMENDOUSLY

IMPORTANT MONTH TO BE

PRAYING FOR AND ENGAGED IN

MINISTRY TO THE MUSLIM

WORLD.

George: THE 30 DAYS

OF PRAYER FOR THE MUSLIM

WORLD WEB PAGE LISTS

RESOURCES ON ISLAM AND HOW

"TO PRAY FOR MUSLIMS, AS"

WELL AS TESTIMONIES ABOUT

THE POWER OF PRAYER TO

CHANGE LIVES IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

YOU JUST HEARD JOEL C.

ROSENBERG TALK ABOUT THE

NEED TO REACH OUT TO

MUSLIMS.

EARLIER I SPOKE INDEPTH

WITH JOEL ABOUT AN

UNPRECEDENTED MOVE OF GOD

IN THE MUSLIM WORLD AND

WHY IT IS HAPPENING.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU ON

THE BROADCAST.

"LISTEN, ON YOUR BLOG,"

"JoelRosenberg.com, YOU"

REFERENCED MORE MUSLIMS

CAME TO CHRIST BETWEEN

1960 TO 2010 THAN IN ANY

TIME IN HISTORY.

TELL US WHY?

IT IS FASCINATING WE'VE

GONE FROM FEWER THAN

"200,000 MUSLIM CONVERTS IN"

1960 TO BETTER THAN

10 MILLION BY 2010.

"AND, OF COURSE, THAT WAS"

SIX YEARS AGO.

WE BELIEVE THE TREND LINES

ARE CONTINUING.

A LOT HAS HAPPENED IN THE

LAST 50 YEARS IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

"A LOT OF REVOLUTIONS,"

"WARS, TURMOIL, POVERTY,"

AND I THINK WHAT IS

"HAPPENING, ESPECIALLY IN"

"THE LAST 10 OR 15 YEARS,"

MANY MUSLIM ARE GETTING

DEEPLY UNCOMFORTABLE WITH

"THE IDEA THAT ISIS, OR"

"IRAN'S LEADERSHIP, OR"

"ASSAD, ARE THE TYPE OF"

PEOPLE THAT REPRESENT

ISLAM.

"MANY MUSLIMS ARE SAYING,"

"IF THAT IS REAL ISLAM, I'M"

OUT.

I'M NOT COMFORTABLE WITH

THAT.

AND THEY'RE BEGINNING TO

SEARCH.

"THERE IS SO MUCH SADNESS,"

"SO MUCH PAIN AND HARDSHIP,"

THEY'RE BEGINNING TO

QUESTION WHETHER THE

SYSTEM THEY'VE ALWAYS

KNOWN AND BELIEVED TO BE

TRUE REALLY IS.

George: TO SPEAK TO

"THAT A LITTLE MORE, IS"

THERE THIS SENSE OF

DISILLUSIONMENT WITHIN

ISLAM?

TREMENDOUS.

ALL THROUGH THE ISLAMIC

"WORLD, MUSLIM SCHOLARS,"

WHO HAVE NOT CONVERTED TO

"CHRISTIANITY, THEY'RE"

"ASKING, WHAT WENT WRONG?"

THE ISLAMIC WORLD WAS ONCE

THE PINNACLE OF MILITARY

MIGHT AND CULTURE AND ART

AND ARCHITECTURE.

AND YET NOW YOU DON'T SEE

"NOBEL PRIZE WINNERS, YOU"

DON'T SEE HIGH-TECH

DISCOVERIES.

YOU'VE GOT OIL AND YOU'VE

GOT WAR.

AND YOU'VE GOT POVERTY AND

YOU'VE GOT ILLITERACY.

"AND MUSCLES ARE ASKING,"

WHAT HAPPENED TO US?

"IF GOD IS WITH US, WHY ARE"

WE STRUGGLING?

AND THERE ARE DIFFERENT

REACTIONS.

"SOME MUSLIMS ARE SAYING,"

GOD IS NOT WITH US.

AND WE NEED TO BECOME MORE

RADICALIZED AND BECOME

VIOLENT AND COMMITTEE

"JIHAD, HOLY WAR, AS IT"

WERE.

"AND OTHERS ARE SAYING,"

MAYBE WE'RE WRONG.

AND THEY'RE BEGINNING TO

SEARCH.

"SATELLITE TELEVISION, THE"

"INTERNET, RADIO, AND OTHER"

BELIEVERS THAT THEY'RE

"MEETING ON THE GROUND, AS"

WELL AS DREAMS AND VISIONS

OF CHRIST.

GOD IS USING MANY WAYS TO

GET THE GOSPEL MESSAGE TO

ISLAM OVER THE HEADS OF

THE CLERICS AND THE

GOVERNMENTS.

RIGHT AT A MOMENT WHEN

MUSLIMS ARE GOING THROUGH

THIS TREMENDOUS UPHEAVAL

AND SOUL-SEARCHING.

George: WOULD YOU

ALSO SAY THERE IS MORE

MINISTRY TO THE MUSLIM

WORLD THAN EVER BEFORE?

I BELIEVE SO.

ALTHOUGH I BELIEVE A LOT

OF THAT HAS ACCELERATED

POST-9/11.

"IN OTHER WORDS, WHEN"

RADICAL ISLAM HIT THE

"UNITED STATES, THERE WAS A"

REACTION.

"OBVIOUSLY, WE WENT TO WAR."

AND THERE WERE OTHER

REACTIONS.

AND MANY AMERICANS AND

CHRISTIANS BEGAN TO GET

VERY ANGRY AT ISLAM.

BUT OTHERS BEGAN TO SAY

WHAT IS MOTIVATING THEM TO

HATE US SO MUCH?

"MAYBE WE'VE NEGLECTED, AS"

"THE CHURCH, BROADLY"

SPEAKING -- MAYBE WE

NEGLECTED BRINGING THEM

THE GOOD NEWS.

"THAT THERE IS HOPE, THAT"

"THERE IS SALVATION, THAT"

SOMEBODY DOESN'T HAVE TO

KILL ONE SELF BECAUSE

SOMEBODY ALREADY HAS DIED

FOR US TO FORGIVE US OUR

SIN.

I THINK THERE IS AN

ACCELERATION OF THE

MISSIONS' WORK IN THE

"MUSLIM WORK, COMBINED WITH"

"TECHNOLOGY, WHICH HAS"

ALLOWED FEWER PEOPLE TO BE

ABLE TO REACH MORE PEOPLE

WITH THE GOSPEL.

I DON'T THINK ENOUGH

PEOPLE ARE ENGAGED IN

"MUSLIM EVANGELISM, AND I"

THINK THAT IS ACTUALLY A

WEAKNESS.

BUT I BELIEVE THAT GOD IS

"MOVING VERY POWERFULLY,"

USING DREAMS AND VISIONS

THAT MUSLIMS ARE HAVING OF

"THE MAN IN WHITE, OF JESUS"

CHRIST HIMSELF.

"THEY ARE WILLING TO SEEK,"

EVEN WHEN THE CHURCH IS

NOT ALWAYS WILLING TO

PREACH.

ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE

"CONVERGING AT A MOMENT,"

WHERE I THINK THIS IS THE

GREATEST MOMENT OF

SPIRITUAL OPENNESS AMONG

MUSLIMS.

THE DATA NOW IS STARTING

"TO COME IN, SHOWING WHAT"

WE'VE ALL SENSED TO BE

"TRUE, THIS TREMENDOUS"

SURGE OF MUSLIMS TURNING

TO CHRIST.

"REMEMBER, 10 MILLION"

CONVERTS -- LET'S SAY IT

"IS TWICE THAT,"

20 MILLION -- IN A WORLD

"OF 1.6 BILLION MUSLIMS, WE"

HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO.

SO IF WE'RE GOING TO

FULFILL A GREAT COMMISSION

AND REACH EVERY NATION

"WITH THE GOSPEL, WE'RE"

GOING TO HAVE TO PICK UP

OUR GAME AND BE MUCH MORE

FAITHFUL IN STRENGTHENING

PASTORS AND MINISTERS IN

THOSE AREAS SO THEY CAN

REACH THE PEOPLE WITH THE

GOSPEL.

George: AND JOEL

SPOKE ABOUT THE INTENSE

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS

"IN THE MUSLIM WORLD, AND"

HOW IT IS ACTUALLY

STRENGTHENING THE CHURCH.

LOG ON TO cbn.com FOR

THAT.

" MOVING ON, PERSECUTION"

IS NOT ONLY HAPPENING IN

THE MUSLIM WORLD.

THIS WEEK HINDU EXTREMISTS

ASSAULTED AND TORTURED 29

INDIAN CHRISTIANS FOR

REFUSING TO GIVE UP THEIR

FAITH.

IT IS ONE EXAMPLE OF THE

34% INCREASE OF VIOLENT

ATTACKS OF CHRISTIANS IN

INDIA OVER THE LAST THREE

YEARS.

INDIAN CHRISTIANS ARE

BANNED FROM CERTAIN JOBS

OR FROM GIVING OUT BIBLES.

THIS WEEK INDIAN PRIME

MINISTER NARENDRA MODI

VISITED THE UNITED STATES.

JAMES LANGFORD SPOKE WITH

"CBN NEWS ABOUT HIS VISIT,"

AND TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY

TO HIGHLIGHT INDIA'S

FAILURES TO PROTECT

RELIGIOUS MINORITIES.

THERE ARE SEVERAL

STATES THAT WITHIN THEIR

STATE LAW ALSO BANS

CONVERSION.

YOU CAN'T MOVE FROM ONE

FAITH TO ANOTHER.

THERE IS PERSECUTION THAT

HAPPENS IN SOME OF THOSE

REGIONS.

"IN THE RURAL REGIONS,"

WE'VE SEEN CHURCHES BURNED

AND PEOPLE KILLED.

THE VIOLENCE IS THERE.

THEY'RE TRYING TO ADDRESS

IT.

EVERY PERSON IN EVERY

"PLACE, WE WANT TO HAVE THE"

OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE THEIR

FAITH.

FROM THOSE WHO COME FROM A

"CHRISTIAN WORLD VIEW, I'M"

NOT AFRAID FOR OTHER

PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO

PRACTICE THEIR FAITH AS

LONG AS I CAN PRACTICE

MINE.

George: AND FOLLOWERS

OF THE SIKH FAITH STAGED A

PROTEST ON CAPITOL HILL

DURING MODI'S VISIT.

"> UP NEXT, NEW DETAILS"

ARE EMERGING ABOUT THE

MORE THAN 300 CHIBOK GIRLS

KIDNAPPED FROM NIGERIA

BACK IN 2014.

WHY THE PERSON WHO WAS

SUPPOSED TO PROTECT THEM

COULD HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THE

ATTACK.

George: AND WELCOME

"BACK TO ""CHRISTIAN WORLD"

"NEWS."""

IT HAS BEEN A HORROWING 26

MONTHS SINCE BOKO HARAM

TERRORISTS KIDNAPPED

NEARLY 300 GIRLS FROM

THEIR SCHOOL IN NIGERIA.

ONLY A FRACTION HAVE

MANAGED TO ESCAPE.

NOW ONE GRIEVING MOTHER

HAS COME FORWARD WITH

SHOCKING DETAILS THAT A

SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR MIGHT

HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THE

PLANNED ATTACKS.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US THE LATEST.

Reporter: TWO YEARS

"LATER, QUESTIONS REMAIN"

UNANSWERED ABOUT THE

LOCATION AND FATE OF THE

KIDNAPPED CHIBOK SCHOOL

GIRLS.

WE JUST HEARD GUNSHOTS

IN THE NIGHT.

THEY WERE SCREAMING.

RUNNING AND LOOKING FOR

WHERE THEY WOULD FIND

SAFETY.

"ONE SAID, I'M NOT GOING"

BECAUSE MY BABY IS IN THAT

SCHOOL.

"AND HE SAID, NOTHING WILL"

HAPPEN TO THEM.

Reporter: BUT THE

NEXT DAY THEY FOUND THE

SCHOOL BURNED TO THE

"GROUND, WITH NO SIGN OF"

THE GIRLS.

MARY SAW HER DAUGHTER IN

THE FIRST VIDEO RELEASED

"BY THE TERRORISTS, BUT SHE"

HAS HEARD NOTHING SINCE.

LAST MONTH ONE GIRL

"MANAGED TO ESCAPE,"

REPORTING THAT ALL BUT SIX

OF THE GIRLS ARE ALIVE.

HALF HAVE BEEN FORCED INTO

MARRIAGE.

WE WANTED THEM TO PUT

MORE EFFORT INTO RESCUING

THE GIRLS.

Reporter: NOW MARY IS

TELLING WHY SHE SUSPECTS

LOCAL GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS

KNEW ABOUT THE ABDUCTION.

ACCORDING TO HER AND

"OTHERS, THE DANGEROUS"

SECURITY SITUATION LED THE

BOARDING SCHOOL TO CLOSE

"FOR WEEKS, LEADING UP TO"

THE ATTACKS.

THEN THE PRINCIPAL

SUDDENLY CALLED THE GIRLS

BACK TO SCHOOL TO TAKE

THEIR FINALS.

MARY SAYS THE PRINCIPAL

AND HER TWO DAUGHTERS WERE

NOT AT THE SCHOOL WHEN

"BOKO HARAM STRUCK, AND"

"NONE OF THE TEACHERS,"

"ADMINISTRATION, OR THEIR"

CHILDREN WERE TAKEN.

SHE KNOWS EVERYTHING

ABOUT THIS.

Reporter: MARY ALSO

CLAIMS THE GOVERNOR SHOWED

HIS SUPPORT FOR THE

TERRORISTS BY REWARDING

THE PRINCIPAL AFTER THE

ATTACKS.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND HIS

RESPONSE.

THIS IS NOT THE RESPONSE.

YOU WOULD FIGHT.

Reporter: MARY

CONTINUES TO TRUST GOD

THAT HER DAUGHTER WILL

"RETURN HOME, AND PRAISED"

FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS THAT

GET INVOLVED IN THE

EFFORTS THAT HELP LOCATE

AND RESCUE THE REMAINING

GIRLS.

"REPORTING FROM WASHINGTON,"

"ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN"

NEWS.

George: A GROUP OF

MODERN DAY CHRISTIAN

ABOLITIONISTS ARE USING A

WORLD FAMOUS GARDEN TO

RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT

MODERN DAY SLAVERY.

Reporter: A FLOWER

SHOW IN LONDON MIGHT SEEM

"LIKE A STRETCH, BUT IT WAS"

AN IDEA SENT FROM GOD IN A

"DREAM, ACCORDING TO"

ABIGAIL.

" I'VE BEEN SAYING, WHAT"

CAN I DO?

HOW CAN I BEST SERVE IN

THIS AREA?

I HAD ANOTHER DREAM.

I BELIEVE IN A GOD WHO

SPEAKS THROUGH DREAMS.

HE GAVE ME A DREAM ABOUT

DOING A GARDEN THAT SPOKE

ABOUT MODERN SLAVERY.

Reporter: WE CAUGHT

UP WITH MIRABEL'S DESIGNER

AS HE WAS WORKING HARD TO

PUT THE FINAL TOUCHES ON

THE DISPLAY.

I WANTED TO EMPHASIZE

THE FACT THAT MODERN

SLAVERY IS A CRIME THAT IS

HIDDEN.

WHEREAS OLD SLAVERY WAS

"ACCEPTABLE, IT WAS"

ACCEPTABLE FOR ONE PERSON

TO OWN ANOTHER PERSON.

THESE DAYS IT IS ILLEGAL.

"SO IT IS A HIDDEN CRIME,"

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.

I THOUGHT THE EASIEST WAY

TO DO THAT WAS SIMPLY TO

HAVE SOME DOORS IN THE

GARDEN.

SO THERE ARE TYPICAL

ENGLISH FRONT DOORS

STANDING UPRIGHT IN THE

GARDEN.

THEY ARE BRIGHTLY COLORED

WITH LOVELY PLANTING

AROUND THE FRONT OF THEM.

"BUT BEHIND THOSE DOORS, IT"

REPRESENTS THE CAPTIVE

SPACE OF MODERN SLAVES.

IT IS DARK AND THERE IS NO

PLANT LIFE.

Reporter: THE MODERN

SLAVERY GARDEN IS MEANT TO

RAISE AWARENESS THAT THERE

ARE 27 MILLION SLAVES IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

THE CHALLENGE IS THAT IT

"IS LARGELY UNSEEN, OUT OF"

SIGHT AND OUT OF MIND.

WHETHER PEOPLE ARE

"WORKING IN BRUSSELS,"

"CANNABIS FARMS,"

"AGRICULTURAL, DOMESTIC --"

ALL OF THESE FORMS OF

SLAVERY ARE LARGELY

HIDDEN.

Reporter: MIRABEL IS

URGING CHRISTIANS TO FIND

OUT IF THERE IS SLAVERY IN

THE SUPPLY CHAIN OF

PRODUCTS THAT THAT

PURCHASE.

BY TAKING A PHOTO OF THE

PRODUCT WITH THE HASHTAG:

ASK THE QUESTION.

OBVIOUSLY ONE PERSON

ASKING A QUESTION IS NOT A

BIG DEAL.

"BUT IF 10,000 PEOPLE OR A"

WHOLE ARMY OF PEOPLE ARE

ASKING A QUESTION OF A

"COMPANY, IS THERE SLAVERY"

"IN YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN,"

OBVIOUSLY THEY'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION.

Reporter: WE'RE HAPPY

TO REPORT THAT MIRABEL AND

JULIETTE'S MODERN SLAVERY

GARDEN WAS AWARDED A GOLD

MEDAL.

"DALE HURD, CBN NEWS,"

LONDON.

" George: UP NEXT,"

SHOWING LOVE TO THE LEAST

OF THESE.

HOW ONE WOMAN IS SHOWING

LOVE TO SOME OF U.K.'S

POOREST CITIZENS.

George: AND WELCOME

BACK.

THIS WEEK A MOTHER IN THE

U.K. WAS GIVEN ONE OF THE

COUNTRY'S HIGHEST HONORS.

THE QUEEN MADE JUNE ROSE

THE MOST EXCELLENCE ORDER

OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE.

HOW DID THIS WOMAN REACH

SUCH EXTRAORDINARY

HEIGHTS?

"WELL, IT STARTED WITH"

LISTENING TO THE VOICE OF

GOD.

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS HER

STORY.

FORMER BRITISH MENTAL

"HEALTH WORKER, TURNED"

"STAY-AT-HOME MOM, JUNE"

"ROSE, WAS VACUUMING HER"

RUG IN 2004 WHEN SOMETHING

UNEXPECTED HAPPENED.

I HEARD A VERY DISTINCT

VOICE.

AND I HEARD THE WORD

MANNA.

Wendy: ALL HER LIFE

JUNE HAD READ THE BIBLE.

SHE WAS A PASTOR'S

DAUGHTER AND HAD BEEN

RAISED IN THE CHURCH.

SHE KNEW FROM STUDYING THE

SCRIPTURES THAT GOD SPOKE

TO PEOPLE THROUGH DREAMS

AND VISIONS.

IT CAME THROUGH A

DREAM.

Wendy: JUNE SAYS GOD

TOLD HER TO PREPARE FOR A

WORLDWIDE ECONOMIC EVENT

FOUR YEARS IN THE FUTURE.

SHE WOULD BE NEEDED TO

HELP FEED PEOPLE.

I HEARD GOD SAYING

PEOPLE WILL BE LOSING

THEIR JOBS AND THEY WON'T

BE ABLE TO FEED THEIR

FAMILY.

"I THOUGHT, I DON'T KNOW"

"HOW THIS WILL BE DONE, BUT"

I'LL JUST BE OBEDIENT.

Wendy: THREE WEEKS

"LATER, JUNE HAD A VIVID"

"DREAM, WITH IMAGES OF A"

"CROWN, A PURPLE PIECE OF"

"FABRIC, AND FOOD MOVING"

RAPIDLY.

I DREAMED I WAS

STANDING IN FRONT OF A

"SUPERMARKET, AND THIS TIME"

I HAD A CROWN ON MY HEAD

AND A PURPLE ROAD.

AND MY HANDS WERE

OUTSTRETCHED.

AND AS I LOOKED AT MY

"HANDS, FOOD WAS COMING OUT"

AT A PHENOMENAL RATE.

Wendy: THE JUNE WAS

"SO STIRRING, THAT SHE"

PURCHASED A LITTLE TIARA

AND FABRIC AND PUT THEM IN

A BOX FOR SAFEKEEPING.

AND JUNE WENT OUT AND

ASKED LOCAL RETAILERS

QUESTIONS ABOUT THEIR

UNSOLD FOOD.

" I SAID, WHAT DO YOU DO"

WITH YOUR SURPLUS FOOD.

AND THEY BASICALLY SAID

THEY THROW IT AWAY.

"AND I SAID, I WOULD LIKE"

TO SEND SOME VOLUNTEERS.

AND THEY SAID FINE.

"OBVIOUSLY, RETAILERS DON'T"

WANT TO THROW AWAY THEIR

FOOD.

Wendy: FOR THE NEXT

"TWO YEARS, JUNE'S HOME"

BECAME THE HUB OF FOOD

DISTRIBUTION IN HER LOCAL

COMMUNITY.

IT STARTED WITH ABOUT

"10 VOLUNTEERS, AND IT"

STARTED FROM MY HOME.

I WOULD HAVE VOLUNTEERS TO

HELP ME GO TO THE

SUPERMARKETS AND BRING IN

ALL OF THESE CRATES.

THERE WAS NO SPACE IN MY

HOUSE.

THERE WERE CRATES ON THE

"STAIRS, EVERYWHERE."

Wendy: AND THEN SHE

"REGISTERED HER TRADE,"

ESTHER COMMUNITY

ENTERPRISE.

THERE WERE PEOPLE

COMING IN AND OUT OF MY

HOME.

IT WAS ALWAYS THOSE PEOPLE

WHO DIDN'T HAVE A HIGH

REGARD IN SOCIETY.

" Wendy: THEN IN 2008,"

JUST LIKE IN JUNE'S

"VISION, A GLOBAL FINANCIAL"

CRISIS AND RECESSION HIT.

THERE WAS A TREMENDOUS

LOSS OF JOBS.

THERE WAS A LOT OF PEOPLE

LITERALLY WHO DIDN'T HAVE

ANYTHING TO EAT.

"SO EVERYTHING, WHAT HE"

"SHOWED ME, LITERALLY CAME"

TO PASS.

WE STARTED HAVING PEOPLE

COMING TO JOIN DIFFERENT

CHURCHES AND

ORGANIZATIONS.

THE FOOD WAS DISTRIBUTED

IN THE DIFFERENT

COMMUNITIES.

" Wendy: BY LATE 2008,"

ESTHER COMMUNITY

ENTERPRISE WAS FEEDING

"17,000 PEOPLE A MONTH."

IT WAS LIKE IN THE BIBLE

WHEN THE ISRAELITES

COLLECTED MANNA EVERY

MORNING.

JUNE'S VOLUNTEERS QUICKLY

GOT THE FOOD TO THE HUNGRY

BEFORE THE SELL DATE.

THERE WERE 300 AMAZING

PEOPLE.

THEY SACRIFICED AT TIMES

THEIR FINANCES.

THE VOLUNTEERS ARE THE

MAIN CORE OF WHAT WE

ACTUALLY DO.

Wendy: JUNE SAYS THE

MOST WONDERFUL TIME FOR

HER AND HER VOLUNTEERS

WERE THE SPECIAL PACKAGES

MADE AT CHRISTMAS.

" WE'RE UP TO 2:00, 3:00"

"IN THE MORNING, AND THE"

FAMILIES ARE WAITING FOR

THEIR PARCELS TO COME

THROUGH.

AND THE TEARS -- THERE IS

NO WORD FOR THAT.

BECAUSE EVERYBODY NEEDS TO

EAT.

NO ONE SHOULD BE FEELING

HUNGRY.

SO WHEN YOU ACTUALLY KNOCK

"ON THE DOOR, AND YOU SEE"

THESE CHILDREN GETTING SO

"EXCITED -- MOMMY, LOOK,"

THEY'RE HERE.

IT IS WORTH IT.

" Wendy: BY 2011,"

JUNE'S FEEDING THE HUNGRY

IN THE U.K. LANDED HER AT

ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS

ADDRESSES IN THE WORLD:

BUCKINGHAM PALACE.

IT WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL

EXPERIENCE.

" Wendy: JUNE,"

REPRESENTING ESTHER

COMMUNITY ENTERPRISE WAS

HONORED WITH THE QUEEN'S

AWARD FOR VOLUNTARY

SERVICE.

THE AWARD IS THE HIGHEST

AWARD GIVEN TO VOLUNTEER

GROUPS IN THE UNITED

KINGDOM.

THERE WAS A CERTIFICATE

GIVEN AND SIGNED BY THE

QUEEN HERSELF.

AND IT IS THE JOURNEY THAT

ESTHER WENT ON WHEN SHE

RECEIVED ORDERS FROM THE

QUEEN.

Wendy: EVEN THE AWARD

LOOKED LIKE THE IMAGES AND

COLORS FROM HER DREAM

SEVEN YEARS EARLIER.

" I THOUGHT, IS THIS FOR"

REAL?

IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING?

TO SEE HOW GOD BRINGS

TOGETHER THE PIECES OF OUR

"LIFE, EVEN WHEN WE DON'T"

UNDERSTAND WHAT HE IS

DOING.

HE HAS A WAY OF BRINGING

THINGS TOGETHER.

" Wendy: TODAY, ESTHER"

COMMUNITY SERVICE SERVICE

"APPROXIMATELY 25,000"

"PEOPLE A MONTH, ALL OVER"

THE U.K.

IT'S ALL ABOUT SERVING.

THAT SHOULD BE OUR HEART.

WE ARE CALLED AS SERVANTS.

George: A TERRIFIC

STORY.

"CONDITIONS TO JUNE ROSE,"

BEING THE HANDS AND FEET

OF OUR SAVIOR.

A FANTASTIC STORY.

IF YOU WANT TO SHARE THE

GOOD NEWS OF HOW GOD USED

JUNE TO CHANGE YOUR

"COUNTRY, JUST VISIT US AS"

cbnnews.com.

YOU CAN POST A STORY TO

THE Facebook PAGE AND

ENCOURAGE YOUR FAMILY AND

FRIENDS.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

George: FOR THE FIRST

"TIME IN 200 YEARS, A TEAM"

OF EXPERTS HAVE STARTED

RENOVATIONS ON THE SITE

THAT SOME SAY WAS THE TOMB

OF JESUS.

THE PROJECT IS HAPPENING

IN THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY

SEPLICUR.

EXPERTS HOPE THEY CAN

UNCOVER HISTORY IN THE

HOLY PLACE.

IT IS A HOLY PLACE.

THERE ARE HUMAN

CONSTRUCTIONS AND

"RECONSTRUCTIONS AROUND,"

AND THEY INVOLVE CHRIST.

AND WHAT WE ARE EXPECTING

TO DO IS TO DOCUMENT AND

MONITOR ALL OF THESE

LAYERS OF HISTORY.

WHICH ARE GIVING MATERIAL

TO SCHOLARS FROM VARIOUS

INSTITUTIONS AROUND THE

GLOBE.

THIS IS FOR EVERYBODY.

George: THE PROJECT

IS EXPECTED TO COST ABOUT

$3.3 MILLION U.S. DOLLARS.

"> WELL, FOLKS, THAT IS"

IT FOR THIS WEEK'S EDITION

"OF ""CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS."""

I HOPE YOU'VE ENJOYED ALL

OF OUR INSPIRING STORIES.

"FROM ALL OF US HERE, UNTIL"

"NEXT WEEK, GOOD-BYE AND"

GOD BLESS YOU.
