Wendy THIS WEEK ON "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS," CHRISTIANS

FORM A SACRED BOND WITH

THE EMBATTLED NATION OF

ISRAEL.

MEET THE GROWING NUMBER OF

CHRISTIANS WHO ARE

SUPPORTING THE JEWISH

STATE.

> PLUS, WHEN THEY SAY

CHURCH WITHOUT WALLS, THEY

REALLY MEAN IT.

SEE HOW THESE MEN AND

BRINGING THE GOSPEL TO

THEIR CITY'S HOMELESS

POPULATION, AND LITERALLY

TAKING CHURCH TO THE

STREETS.

AND SOCIAL MEDIA IS HAVING

A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON MANY

YOUNG WOMEN IN CHINA.

WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW THE

CHURCH IS BRINGING A

DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE.

WELCOME TO "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS."

I'M CHARLENE AARON.

GEORGE THOMAS AND WENDY

GRIFFITH ARE ON

ASSIGNMENT.

IT IS THE LAND WHERE THE

CHRISTIAN FAITH WAS

STARTED, AND THE BIBLE

SAYS IT IS WHERE JESUS

WILL RETURN IN THIS GLORY.

PERHAPS THAT IS WHY THE

NATION OF ISRAEL IS

SURROUNDED BY ENEMIES, WHO

ARE SEEKING TO DEMONIZE OR

DESTROY IT.

AND IT IS ALSO WHY THE

NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS

STANDING UP FOR ISRAEL IS

GROWING, AND EVEN

AFFECTING THE PRESIDENTIAL

RACE.

CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS

FROM WASHINGTON, D.C.

[CHEERING]

Chris: CHRISTIANS

UNITED FOR ISRAEL, OR

CUFI, HAS GROWN TO MORE

THAN THREE MILLION

MEMBERS.

FOUNDER PASTOR JOHN HAGEE

STARTED OUT 11 YEARS AGO

TO TEACH CHRISTIANS ABOUT

THE BIBLICAL MANDATE TO

STAND WITH ISRAEL.

BECAUSE EVERY

EVANGELICAL HAS A BIBLICAL

BASIS FOR SUPPORTING THE

STATE OF ISRAEL.

SUPPORTING ISRAEL IS NOT A

POLITICAL ISSUE.

IT IS A BIBLE ISSUE.

Chris: CUFI IS HAVING

AN IMPACT ON PRESIDENTIAL

POLITICS.

ONE NETWORK CREDITS THE

GROUP WITH INFLUENCING

REPUBLICANS TO ADOPT THE

MOST PRO-ISRAEL PLATFORM

IN U.S. HISTORY.

SO BECAUSE OF

CHRISTIANS UNITED FOR

ISRAEL, WHICH WAS

SPECIFICALLY NAMED IN THE

ARTICLE, THE REPUBLICAN

SAID, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE

A PLANK THAT SAYS

JERUSALEM SHALL BE AN

UNDIVIDED CITY IN THE

FUTURE.

Chris: EVEN WITH THAT

POLITICAL VICTORY, MIDDLE

EAST EXPERTS LIKE COLONEL

OLIVER NORTH, BELIEVE

ISRAEL IS UNDER MORE

THREATS THAN EVERMENT.

>EVER.

NOW THE IRANIANS AND

THE NORTH KOREANS ARE

BUILDING NUCLEAR WEAPONS

AND HAVE THE MEANS TO

DELIVER THEM.

THEY HAVE ISRAEL FIRST AS

A TARGET, AND THEN US, THE

GREAT SATAN, AS THE NEXT

TARGET.

SO CUFI, CHRISTIANS UNITED

FOR ISRAEL, CAN MAKE ALL

OF THE DIFFERENCE IN THE

WORLD IN TERMS OF

EDUCATING PEOPLE ABOUT THE

REAL THREAT AND WHAT WE

HAVE TO DO ABOUT IT.

Chris: CUFI BELIEVES

A BIG PART OF STANDING

WITH ISRAEL IS WHAT IS

HAPPENING ON COLLEGE

CAMPUSES TODAY.

BEHIND ME IS AN APARTHEID

WALL, IT VILIFIES ISRAEL'S

SECURITY BARRIER.

SO CUFI HAS ENLISTED

HUNDREDS OF STUDENTS

AROUND THE WORLD TO

PRESENT THE TRUTH ABOUT

ISRAEL.

THEY CALL IT THE BATTLE

FOR ISRAEL.

WE'RE FIGHTING THIS FOR

THE FUTURE OF ISRAEL.

AND WE'RE FIGHTING THIS

FOR THE FUTURE OF AMERICA.

Chris:

PRO-PALESTINIAN GROUPS

OFTEN TRY TO SHUT DOWN

PRO-ISRAEL SPEECHES ON

CAMPUS.

IN SO MANY COLLEGES AND

CAMPUSES AROUND THE WORLD,

STUDENTS FACE SO MUCH

DISCRIMINATION AND

BACKLASH FOR STANDING FOR

ISRAEL.

THE BIBLE VERSE, I WILL

BLESS THOSE WHO BLESS YOU,

AND CURSE THOSE WHO CURSE

YOU, IS THE PROMISE OF

GOD, AND GOD KEEPS HIS

PROMISES.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Charlene: WHILE

GENOCIDE AND ISLAMIC

PERSECUTION HAS LEFT THE

NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS

LIVING IN THE MIDDLE EAST

AT AN ALL-TIME LOW, ISRAEL

IS THE SAFEST HAVEN FOR

CHRISTIANS.

FATHER GABRIEL NADOFF

SPOKE AT THE CUFI

CONFERENCE.

HE TOLD THE CROWD HE HAS

SEEN WITH HIS OWN EYES HOW

ISRAEL TREATS CHRISTIANS.

HE SAYS TODAY THERE IS

JUST ONE COUNTRY IN THE

MIDDLE EAST WHERE

CHRISTIANS LIVE IN PEACE

AND SECURITY.

IN ISRAEL THEY HAVE

FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND

RELIGION.

THEY CAN EXERCISE THEIR

FAITH FREELY AND THEY HAVE

DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS.

> WELL, CHRISTIANS

AREN'T THE ONLY ONES

FACING DISTINCTION IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

ISIS HAS ALSO COMMITTED

GENOCIDE AGAINST ETHNIC

YAZIDIS.

THE WORLD HAS FINALLY

TAKEN NOTICE, THANKS TO

THE TIRELESS EFFORTS OF

ONE MEMBER OF THE IRAQI

PARLIAMENT.

Reporter: THE WORLD

TOOK NOTICE AFTER THIS

LAW-MAKING'S EMPASSIONED

PLEA TO SAVE TRAPPED

YAZIDI, TRAPPED ON SINJAR

MONTAR.

SET ASIDE YOUR

POLITICAL DIFFERENCES.

IN THE NAME OF HUMANITY, I

CALL UPON ALL OFOU TO

SAVE US, TO SAVE US.

Reporter: IT WAS

AUGUST 2014, ISLAMIC STATE

FIGHTERS OVER RAN YAZIDI

VILLAGES AROUND SINJAR AND

ZUMAR, NEAR THE MOSUL DAM.

MEN WERE SLAUGHTERED, WHIM

WOMEN IN CHILDREN

KIDNAPPED.

BOYS WERE FORCED TO JOIN

ISIS, WHILE GIRLS WERE

RAPED, BOUGHT AND SOLD FOR

SEX.

THE UNITED STATES

RESPONDED TO HER CRY OF

DESPERATION, AND ARE AIR

LIFTING SUPPLIES TO SINJAR

MONTAR.

MOUNTAIN.

AS HER PEOPLE DIED FROM

THIRST AND HUN HUNGER, NAQUIL

TRAVELLED TO SINJAR TO

DELIVER SUPPLIES.

HER HELICOPTER,

DANGEROUSLY OVERWEIGHT,

THE HELICOPTER CRASHED.

Reporter: WERE YOU

HURT?

WERE YOU INJURED BADLY

YES.

Reporter: WHAT

HAPPENED?

MY NECK WAS BROKEN

COMPLETELY.

MY RIBS ARE HURT AND

SHOULDERS.

Reporter: SHE IS

HEALED NOW AND DOING WELL.

WAS RISKING HER LIFE AND

SUFFERING PERSONAL INJURY

WORTH IT?

YES, OF COURSE.

YES.

THOSE ARE MY PEOPLE.

AND, YOU KNOW, THOSE ARE

HUMAN BEINGS.

AND SOME TERRORISTS COME

AND KILL THEM.

Reporter: AND

CHRISTIANS, INCLUDING CBN,

WERE AMONG THE FIRST

PROVIDING RELIEF.

THE CHRISTIAN GROUPS,

OR CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES,

ARE HELPING THE YAZIDI

PEOPLE, YES.

THEY ARE HELPING THEM.

Reporter: AND NOW,

TWO YEARS LATER, AS WORLD

ATTENTION FOCUSES ON

IMMIGRATION, SHE IS

RENEWING HER CALL FOR

ASSISTANCE.

SHE SAYS THE YAZIDIS STILL

NEED HELP REBUILDING THEIR

LIVES AND CITIES IN IRAQ.

WE NEED SOMEONE TO PRAY

FOR THE YAZIDI PEOPLE, AND

ANOTHER TO HELP THEM, AND

ANOTHER TO FOCUS ON THE

SITUATION OF THOSE

YAZIDIS.

BECAUSE SOMETIMES THE

PEOPLE FORGET WHAT

HAPPENED.

Reporter: FORGETTING

THAT 400,000 YAZIDIS STILL

LIVE INTENTS AS REFUGEES,

OFTEN DURING HARSH WEATHER

CONDITIONS.

HERE WE HAVE 1,000

BOYS, BETWEEN SIX TO 10

YEARS OLD, THAT ARE

CAPTURED IN MOSUL, AND

THEY WASH THE BRAIN OF

THEM, AND TEACHING THEM TO

USE THE WEAPONS, A NEW

GENERATION FOR TERRORISTS,

FOR ISIS.

Reporter: AND ISIS

STILL HOLDS 3500 YAZIDI

FEMALES CAPTIVE.

SHE SAYS FORTUNATELY,

2,000 GIRLS AND CHILDREN

HAVE ESCAPED.

BUT THEY NEED

PSYCHOLOGICAL THERAPY.

THIS IS THE SITUATION NOW,

AFTER TWO YEARS.

Reporter: HOPING TO

RAISE AWARENESS AND HELP,

HER SISTER, DELON,.

Starr: ED THSTARTED

THE SINJAR FOUNDATION.

AND SHE TREATS GIRLS WHO

EITHER ESCAPED OR WERE

RESCUED FROM ISIS.

SHE TOLD ABOUT A GIRL WHO

WAS RAPED SEVERAL TIMES

AFTER ONE JIHADIST TRADED

HER FROM ONE TO THE OTHER

FOR A CIGARETTE.

GIRLS HAVE BEEN RAPED

IN FRONT OF HER EYES, THAT

BLEED TO DEATH.

Reporter: MANY OF THE

GIRLS HAVE SUFFERED

PHYSICAL ABUSE AND

TORTURE.

DELON SAYS THEIR EMOTIONAL

SCARS COULD LAST A

LIFETIME.

THEY ARE LIVING IN

HELL, ANOTHER HELL.

AND THEN THEY LIVE IN A

COMMUNITY, IN A TENT.

AND THE MUSLIMS, THEIR

FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE EITHER

BEEN KIDNAPPED OR KILLED

IN FRONT OF THEIR EYES.

Reporter: SHE SAYS

THE YAZIDI GIRLS AND THEIR

FAMILIES NEED THERAPY.

SHE WANTS AMERICAN

PSYCHOLOGISTPSYCHOLOGISTS SPECIALIZING

IN TRAUMA TO TEACH THEM

HOW TO HELP THEM.

SHE SAYS SHE NEEDS HELP,

TOO.

THESE STORIES WILL STAY

WITH ME FOR THE WHOLE OF

MY LIFE.

I SPENT MANY NIGHTS WHERE

I DIDN'T SLEEP AND HAVE

CRIED TO THE MORNING.

TO BE HONEST, I AM

TRAUMATIZED, TOO.

Reporter: IS IT A

GOOD IDEA TO PRAY FOR

THESE GIRLS?

OF COURSE.

OF COURSE.

PRAYING WILL BE A GREAT

THING TO DO.

Reporter: VOICES FOR

A VOICELESS PEOPLE.

TWO SISTERS REQUESTING

PRAYER AND HELP FOR THE

YAZIDIS, AN ETHNIC

RELIGIOUS PEOPLE THE WORLD

NOW SAYS ARE VICTIMS OF

ISIS GENOCIDE.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS,

IRBIL, IRAN.

Charlene: COMING UP,

A CHURCH WITHOUT WALLS.

SEE HOW ONE MINISTRY IS

TAKING CHURCH TO THE

HOMELESS, ON THE STREETS.

Charlene: RECORDING

ARTISTS, PREACHERS, AND

BELIEVERS FROM ARN THE AROUND THE

WORLD PACKED THE NATIONAL

MALL THIS WEEKEND TO PRAY.

THE "TOGETHER 2016" EVENT

WAS SCHEDULED TO LAST 12

HOURS, BUT EXTREME HEAT

AND HUNDREDS OF AMBULANCE

CALLS FORCED THE PARKS

DEPARTMENT TO SHUT IT DOWN

AFTER JUST SEVEN HOURS.

EFREM GRAHAM WAS THERE.

*

Efrem: SATURDAY

TEMPERATURES QUICKLY

CLIMBED ABOVE 90 HERE IN

WASHINGTON, D.C.

BUT THE STEAMY WEATHER

DIDN'T KEEP HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS FROM ANSWERING

THE CALL TO COME TO THE

NATIONAL MALL.

TO STAND TOGETHER, WORSHIP

TOGETHER, AND PRAY

TOGETHER.

THIS ISN'T ABOUT

PERFECT PEOPLE GATHERING.

THIS IS ABOUT IMPERFECT

PEOPLE, AND WE'RE ALL

GATHERING TO SEEK THE

PERFECT ONE.

THERE IS ONLY ONE ANSWER,

AND IT'S JESUS.

Efrem: NICK HALL IS

THE MAN BEHIND THIS

MASSIVE EVENT CALLED

"TOGETHER 2016," AND

RECORDING ARTISTS LIKE

HILLSONG UNITED, LE CRAE,

AND MATTHEW WEST LENT

THEIR VOICES TO THE

MASSES.

THERE WERE HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

STANDING IN THAT PLACE

TODAY, CELEBRATING THE GOD

WHO FORGIVES, THE GOD WHO

RENEWS, AND THE GOD WHO

CAN BRING HEALING TO OUR

HURTING NATION.

Efrem: PACKING THE

NATIONAL MALL WITH A

MILLION PEOPLE TO PRAY HAS

BEEN IN THE WORKS FOR THE

LAST FIVE YEARS.

BUT THE TIMING OF IT,

CONSIDERING WHAT IS

HAPPENING IN OUR WORLD IN

THE LAST FEW WEEKS,

COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE

PERFECT.

UNFORTUNATELY, THE EXTREME

HEAT FORCED THE PARKS

DEPARTMENT TO SHUT IT DOWN

ABOUT FIVE HOURS EARLY.

HUNDREDS WERE TREATED FOR

HEAT-RELATED ILLNESSES.

I'M GLAD THAT WE'RE ALL

TOGETHER.

I AM GLAD TO SEE A GLIMPSE

OF WHAT IS HEAVEN WILL BE

LIKE ONE DAY.

BUT AT SOME POINT WE HAVE

TO WALK OUT OF HERE AND

WALK IT OUT.

Efrem: MINISTER NICK

HALL FIRST ANNOUNCED PLANS

FOR "TOGETHER 2016" FIVE

YEARS AGO.

HOW BUMMED ARE AR YOU THAT IT

HAD TO END EARLY?

FIVE YEARS PLANNING,

THAT WAS A HARD THING.

BUT I TALKED TO ONE OF THE

LEADERS, AND HE SAID, I

HAVE TO TRUST THAT THE

LORD HAS SOMETHING IN

THIS.

HE SAID, WITH TEARS IN HIS

EYES, THAT GOD KNOWS WHAT

HE IS DOING.

Efrem: BECAUSE THE

TRUE MEASURE OF SUCCESS IS

WHAT CHANGES AFTER LEAVING

THE PARK.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Charlene: A MINISTRY

IN KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI,

HAS COME UP WITH A UNIQUE

WAY TO REACH THE CITY'S

HOMELESS POPULATION.

IT HAS CREATED SOMETHING

CALLED THE WORSHIP WAGON,

WITH THE IDEA OF TAKING

CHURCH TO PEOPLE LIVING ON

THE STREETS.

AND NOW LIVES ARE BEING

RESTORED ONE SERVICE AT A

TIME.

*

Charlene: SONGS OF

PRAISE FILL THE AIR UNDER

THIS BRIDGE NEAR DOWNTOWN

KANSAS CITY.

THIS CHURCH BEHIND ME,

WHICH DOESN'T HAVE ANY

WALLS AND NO PEWS, IS

TOUCHING THE LIVES OF SOME

OF THE MOST UNREACHED

PEOPLE IN THE HEART OF

KANSAS CITY.

WELCOME TO THE WORSHIP

WAGON, A MOBILE CHURCH

SERVING THE POOR AND

HOMELESS.

THOSE ATTENDING THIS

CHURCH ON WHEELS

PARTICIPATE IN A WEEKLY

NON-DENO DENOMINATIONAL

SERVICE EACH MONDAY NIGHT,

AND ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME

AS THEY ARE.

WE'LL SET UP ABOUT 5:30

IN THE EVENING, AND NO ONE

WILL BE HERE.

AND THEN WE'LL GET THE

MUSIC GOING, AND YOU'LL

SEE PEOPLE JUST DRIFTING

OUT OF THE WOODS, WHICH IS

BEHIND US, ALONG WITH THE

MISSOURI RIVER, WHERE

ABOUT 100 PEOPLE LIVE --

100 HOMELESS PEOPLE LIVE

THERE YEAR-ROUND, AND

THOSE ARE OUR

PARISHIONERS.

MY WIFE AND I HAVE BEEN

WORKING WITH THE HOMELESS

FOR ABOUT 12 YEARS NOW.

WE TRIED REALLY HARD IN A

FEW DIFFERENT WAYS, TO

THINK ABOUT TAKING PEOPLE

OUT OF THE STREET AND INTO

A WORLD IN WHICH WE FEEL

MORE COMFORTABLE.

AND WE LEARNED SOME

LESSONS THAT WAY, THAT

MAYBE THAT'S NOT ALWAYS

THE BEST WAY TO BRING

GOD'S WORD TO THOSE

PEOPLE.

WE DECIDED TO BRING THE

CHURCH ON TO THE STREET

INSTEAD.

Charlene: EACH WEEK

VOLUNTEERS FROM LOCAL

CHURCHES FILL THE WAGON

WITH EQUIPMENT NEEDED FOR

THE SERVICE.

WE HAVE A SIMPLE,

SINGLE-AXLE TRAILER.

BUT WE HAVE A VERY

PROFESSIONAL SOUND SYSTEM,

THAT IS VERY COMPACT, AND

WE HAVE A QUIET GENERATOR,

AND IT POWERS THE WHOLE

SOUND SYSTEM.

WE CAN HAVE A COMPLETE

BAND HERE PLAYING WORSHIP

MUSIC WITH JUST THAT

SYSTEM.

AND ALSO IN TH THE TRAILER,

WE'VE GOT A TON OF CHAIRS.

AND IN THE WINTER, WE HAVE

A COMMERCIAL GRADE HEADER,

AND IT RUNS OFF OF DIESEL,

AND IT IS SO BIG.

BUT IT HEATS UP THIS WHOLE

AREA UNDER THE BRIDGE.

SOME GUYS WILL JUST COME

TO GET WARM, AND THEN THEY

HEAR THE GOSPEL.

IT IS FUN TO SEE HOW THAT

HAPPENS.

Charlene: RAIN OR

SHINE, THE WHEELS KEEP

ROLLING.

WE'VE BEEN DOWN HERE

EVERY MONDAY, EXCEPT FOR

ONE, IN A YEAR AND A HALF,

AND THAT'S BECAUSE THE

ROAD WAS TOO ICY TO DRIVE

DOWN HERE.

AND WE'VE BEEN HERE IN THE

NORTH WINDS, AND WE WERE

ALL SHIVERING, IN OUR HATS

AND GLOVES, AND WE'VE BEEN

OUT HERE WHEN IT WAS 100

AND THERE HAVE BEEN

THUNDERSTORMS.

WE'VE BEEN BLESSED WITH

THIS AMAZING LOCATION THAT

COVERS US.

AS LONG AS THERE IS NOT A

TORNADO RIGHT ON TOP OF US

OR ICE ON THE STREET, I

THINK WE HAVE LICENSE TO

COME DOWN HERE AND SET UP

SHOP.

Charlene: VOLUNTEER

MELVIN COLE SAYS HE OFTEN

SEES EXTRAORDINARY ACTION

REACTION FROM SOME PEOPLE

IN THE AUDIENCE.

SOME PEOPLE HIGH-FIVE

AND SOME DANCE AROUND.

I DANCE WITH THEM.

YOU REALLY WANT THE PEOPLE

TO FEEL CONNECTED.

WE ARE ALL WORSHIPPING GOD

TOGETHER.

Charlene: BEVERLY

COLE SAW HER LIFE

TRANSFORMED BY THE

MINISTRY, A MESSAGE SHE

NOW SHARES WITH OTHERS.

I WAS A DRUG ADDICT FOR

MANY, MANY YEARS.

AND I KNOW GOD CHANGED ME

FROM THE INSIDE OUT.

I KNOW IF HE CAN CHANGE

ME, HE CAN CHANGE ANYBODY.

Charlene: MEANWHILE,

THE WORSHIP WAGON PLANS TO

CONTINUE BRINGING CHURCH

TO THE DOWN AND OUT, IN

NEED OF HOPE AND HEALING.

GOD WORKS WITH US

WHEREVER WE'RE AT.

WHAT WE HEAR ABOUT THE

WORSHIP WAGON IS BRINGING

GOD AND BEING HIS EYES AND

EARS AND HANDS AND FEET

WHERE THE PEOPLE ARE AT,

INSTEAD OF THINKING YOU

CAN BRING THE PEOPLE TO

WHERE YOU'RE AT.

Charlene: COMING UP,

HOW SOCIAL MEDIA IS HAVING

A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON YOUNG

WOMEN IN CHINA.

SEE HOW CHURCHES ARE

POINTING THEM TO THE

TRUTH.

Charlene: WELCOME

BACK TO "CHRISTIAN WORLD

NEWS."

SOCIAL MEDIA IS HAVING A

BIG IMPACT ON OUR LIVES,

FLOODING OUR EYES WITH A

CONSTANT STREAM OF IMAGES

FOR BETTER OR WORSE.

IN CHINA, SOME HEALTH

EXPERTS ARGUE THAT

TECHNOLOGY IS HAVING A

NEGATIVE AFFECT ON

MILLENNIALS.

AS MUNG FE LI REPORTS, THE

STEADY STREAM OF

INFORMATION IS PRESSURING

GIRLS TO CHANGE THEIR

PHYSICAL APPEARANCE.

*

Reporter: IF YOU ASK

ANY YOUNG CHINESE GIRL

TODAY WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO

HER, SHE IS LIKELY TO

ANSWER, BECOMING A FASHION

MODEL.

MARRIAGE AND CAREER ARE NO

LONGER APPEALING TO THEM.

HAVING THE PERFECT BODY

WEIGHT IS THE DREAM OF

EVERY MODERN CHINESE GIRL.

Through Translator:

EVERY GIRL KNOWS THE

TRUTH: INNER BEAUTY IS

SOMEWHAT IMPORTANT,

HOWEVER, MOST PEOPLE

BELIEVE GOOD-LOOKING GIRLS

ARE MORE POPULAR.

Reporter: THE

CONTESTS INSPIRE YOUNG

FEMALE MILLENNIALS TO PAY

CLOSE ATTENTION TO THEIR

WEIGHT.

THE CONTESTS REQUIRE THEM

TO USE PRINTING PAPER AS A

WAY TO MEASURE ACCESS BODY

FAT.

I ALWAYS PAY ATTENTION

TO MY WEIGHT.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME.

BEING ON A DIET HAS BEEN

MY FAVORITE CHOICE TO

AVOID GAINING EXTRA

WEIGHT.

Reporter: MANY

CHINESE GIRLS GO ON DIETS

TO ATTRACT OR KEEP

BOYFRIENDS.

SOME FEAR THEIR BOYFRIENDS

MIGHT COMPARE THEM TO

OTHER SLIMMER GIRLS.

THIS CHRISTIAN HEALTH

EXPERT STRONGLY OPPOSES

THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR.

HE IS WORRIED IT COULD

CREATE POTENTIAL HEALTH

ISSUES FOR YOUNG FEMALES,

SUCH AS ANOREXIA AND OTHER

EATING DISORDERS.

Through Translator: I

DON'T NORMALLY TELL MY

FEMALE STUDENTS AND

FRIENDS TO LOSE WEIGHT,

UNLESS THEY HAVE TO.

AS A HEALTH EXPERT, I

ALWAYS ENCOURAGE THEM TO

LOVE WHO THEY ARE.

LOSING WEIGHT IS GOOD, BUT

WE STILL NEED PROTEIN TO

BE HEALTHY.

Reporter: JAPAN WAS

THE FIRST ASIAN COUNTRY TO

REPORT AN INCREASE IN

EATING DISORDERS AMONG

MILLENNIALS.

CHINA IS NOW THE MOST

RECENT TO REPORT THIS

GROWING PROBLEM.

A 2009 STUDY FOUND THAT

EATING DISORDERS ARE

PREVALENT AMONG LARGE

ASIAN COUNTRIES.

MOST OF THEM HABITUALLY

USE LAXATIVES TO LOSE

WEIGHT.

THE PRACTICE IS SPREADING

AMONG COLLEGE WOMEN, WITH

43% OF THEM IDENTIFIED AS

AT RISK FOR AN EATING

DISORDER.

IT IS NOT THAT I DON'T

WANT TO EAT THE FOOD.

IT IS MORE ABOUT HOW TO

EAT THE FOOD AND REMAIN

THE IDEAL BODY WEIGHT.

THE STRUGGLE IS REAL AND

IT IS PAINFUL.

Through Translator:

AMONG CHRISTIANS, FEW OF

OUR SISTERS IN MY CHURCH

ARE SUFFERING THE SAME

PROBLEM.

WE NEED TO REMEMBER GOD'S

WORD, OUR BODY IS THE HOLE HOLY

TEMPLE.

WE ARE TO HONOR THE TEMPLE

BY APPRECIATING OUR

BODIES.

Reporter: ON THE ONE

HAND, THE DEBUT ABOUT BODY

IMAGES IS LIKELY TO GO OR

FON A WHILE.

ON THE OTHER HAND, THE

MAJORITY OF CHINESE WOMEN

BELIEVE THAT SOCIETY

SHOULD NOT PRESSURE

ANYBODY TO CHANGE THEIR

BODIES.

AND MORE CHINESE HEALTH

EXPERTS WILL CONTINUE TO

EDUCATE CHINESE

MILLENNIALS ON THIS

CRITICAL MATTER.

Through Translator:

I'M GOING TO INVITE MORE

CHRISTIAN HEALTH EXPERTS

TO JOIN THIS MISSION.

WE NEED TO SEE OURSELVES

AS THE WAY GOD SEES US.

WE ARE PERFECTLY MADE IN

HIS IMAGE.

ALL WOMEN ARE BEAUTIFULLY

AND FEARFULLY MADE.

Reporter: MUNG FE LI,

FOR CBN NEWS, BEIJING,

CHINA.

Charlene: YOU CAN

SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS OF

HOW GOD IS AT WORK AROUND

THE WORLD, SIMPLY LOG ON

TO CBN NEWS ON OUR

Facebook PAGE AND SHARE

YOUR STORY.

STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Charlene: "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS HELPING TO

PREPARE YOUNG PREGNANT

WOMEN FOR MOTHERHOOD.

O.B.'S YOUNG WOMEN'S

PREGNANCY PROGRAM IN PERU

TEACHES WOMEN HOW TO

SAFELY DELIVER THEIR

BABIES.

THAT KNOWLEDGE PROVED TO

BE HELPFUL WHEN JELISSA

SUDDENLY WENT INTO LABOR

WHILE VISITING HER

GRANDMOTHER.

SHE DELIVERED HER HEALTHY

BABY BOY, ANGEL, ON HER

OWN.

SHE LEARNED HOW TO

CONFIDENTLY GIVE BIRTH

WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING'S" HELP.

AND SHE AND HER BABY SON

ARE DOING WONDERFUL AND

ARE THRIVING, THANK GOD.

> THANK YOU FOR JOINING

US THIS WEEK.

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, GOOD-BYE

AND GOD BLESS YOU.
