I'M MARK MARTIN.

JUBILATION IN PHILADELPHIA

THURSDAY NIGHT AS HILLARY

CLINTON ACCEPTED THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY'S

NOMINATION FOR PRESIDENT.

SHE HAS BECOME THE FIRST

WOMAN NOMINATED BY A MAJOR

POLITICAL PARTY IN

AMERICA.

ON THE STAGE, SHE PROMOTED

HERSELF AS A STEADY HAND

IN AN UNSTEADY WORLD AND

CAST DOUBTS ABOUT HER

REPUBLICAN OPPONENT.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS MORE.

Jennifer: AMERICAN

FLAGS WAVING, TEARS IN THE

AUDIENCE FLOWING, HILLARY

CLINTON TOOK A LONG

VICTORY WALK.

FOR HER THIS MOMENT TOOK A

LONG TIME.

FOR HER SUPPORTERS, THEY

SAY A WOMAN'S PLACE IS IN

THE WHITE HOUSE.

STANDING HERE AS MY

MOTHER'S DAUGHTER AND MY

DAUGHTER'S MOTHER, I'M SO

HAPPY THIS DAY HAS COME.

I'M HAPPY FOR GRANDMOTHERS

AND LITTLE GIRLS AND

EVERYONE IN BETWEEN.

I'M HAPPY FOR BOYS AND MEN

BECAUSE WHEN ANY BARRIER

FALLS IN AMERICA, IT

CLEARS THE WAY FOR

EVERYONE.

[APPLAUSE]

[CHEERING]

AFTER ALL, WHEN THERE

ARE NO CEILINGS, THE SKY'S

THE LIMIT.

Jennifer: THE

68-YEAR-OLD HAS BEEN IN

PUBLIC SERVICE FOR 40

YEARS.

IN PHILADELPHIA FOR THE

FIRST TIME, SHE GOT TO

INTRODUCE HERSELF TO THE

NATION IN A WAY LIKE NEVER

BEFORE.

THE TRUTH IS, THROUGH

ALL THESE YEARS OF PUBLIC

SERVICE, THE SERVICE PART

HAS ALWAYS COME EASIER TO

ME THAN THE PUBLIC PART.

Jennifer: SHE WORKED

TO PAINT HERSELF AS A

UNIFYER IN DIVIDED TIMES,

ATTESTED LEADER WHO CAN

HANDLE THE VOLATILE WORLD,

AND A POLICY ONE, WHO

KNOWS HOW TO GET THINGS

DONE.

SHE AGGRESSIVELY WENT

AFTER HER REPUBLICAN

RIVAL, DONALD TRUMP,

URGING THE NATION NOT TO

FALL FOR HIS SWEEPING

PROMISES.

HE HAS TAKEN THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY A LONG

WAY, FROM MORNING IN

AMERICA TO MIDNIGHT IN

AMERICA.

HE WANTS US TO FEAR THE

FUTURE AND FEAR EACH

OTHER.

Jennifer: THE LINE IN

HER SPEECH MOST TWEETED,

IS A MAN YOU CAN BEG WITH

A TWEET IS NOT A MAN WE

CAN TRUST WITH NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

DONALD TRUMP SAYS, AND

THIS IS A, QUOTE,"I KNOW

MORE ABOUT ISIS THAN THE

GENERALS DO."

NO, DONALD, YOU DON'T.

Jennifer: IN

RESPONSE, TRUMP TWEETED,

"OUR WAY OF LIFE IS UNDER

THREAT BY RADICAL ISLAM,

AND HILLARY CLINTON ISN'T

EVEN BRINGING HERSELF TO

SAY THE WORDS."

HE ALSO SPENT A DAY ON THE

STUMP FIGHTING BACK.

THEY'RE NOT TALKING

ABOUT THE REAL WORLD.

THEY'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM.

THEY'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

BORDERS WHERE PEOPLE JUST

POUR ACROSS.

THEY'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

THE CRIME, THE KIND OF

CRIME WE HAVE IN THIS

NATION.

THEY'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

THE FACT THAT MANY PEOPLE

IN OUR COUNTRY ARE MAKING

LESS MONEY TODAY, IN TERMS

OF REAL WAGES, THAN THEY

WERE MAKING 18 YEARS AGO.

THEY'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

THAT.

Jennifer: AND CLINTON

ALSO TOOK ON HER OTHER

POLITICAL FOE, A DIVIDED

DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

BERNIE, YOUR CAMPAIGN

INSPIRED MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS.

Reporter: IN THE

AUDIENCE, SANDERS'

SUPPORTERS PROTESTED HER

NOMINATION, INTERRUPTING

HER MULTIPLE TIMES.

SHE RESPONDED WITH AN

OLIVE BRANCH.

BERNIE SANDERS AND I

WILL WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE

COLLEGE TUITION-FREE FOR

THE MIDDLE CLASS AND

DEBT-FREE FOR ALL.

Jennifer: AND SHE

EXPLAINED HOW SHE'LL PAY

FOR IT.

WALL STREET,

CORPORATIONS, AND THE

SUPER RICH ARE GOING TO

START PAYING THEIR FAIR

SHARE OF TAXES.

Jennifer: IT WAS A

NIGHT OF GIRL POWER WITH

DEMOCRATIC WOMEN OF THE

SENATE TAKING TURNS

EXPLAINING WHAT CLINTON

HAS MADE TO THEM.

SHE SAID, DECISIONS ARE

BEING MADE EVERY DAY IN

WASHINGTON, AND IF YOU ARE

NOT PART OF THOSE

DECISIONS AND YOU DON'T

LIKE WHAT THEY DECIDE, YOU

HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME BUT

YOURSELF.

HILLARY BELIEVES THAT TO

HER CORE.

Jennifer: AND THE ONE

SANDERS SUPPORTERS

PREFERRED OVER TIM KAINE

GAVE CLINTON A THUMB'S UP.

FOR 25 YEARS SHE HAS

BEEN ON THE RECEIVING END

OF ONE ATTACK AFTER

ANOTHER, BUT SHE DOESN'T

BACK DOWN.

SHE DOESN'T WHINE.

SHE DOESN'T RUN TO TWITTER

TO GIVE PEOPLE UGLY

NICKNAMES.

AND SHE SURE AS HECK

DOESN'T QUIT.

Reporter: CHELSEA

CLINTON INTRODUCED HER

MOM, PAINTING A PORTRAIT

OF THE WOMAN WHO ALWAYS

MADE TIME FOR HER.

I HOPE THAT MY CHILDREN

WILL SOME DAY BE AS PROUD

OF ME AS I AM OF MY MOM.

Reporter: HILLARY

CLINTON ACKNOWLEDGED SOME

PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHAT TO

MAKE OF HER.

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

WATCHING AT HOME HAVE

SERIOUS CONCERNS ABOUT HER

CHARACTER AND

TRUSTWORTHINESS.

NOW AMERICA IS ONCE

AGAIN AT A MOMENT OF

RECKONING.

POWERFUL FORCES ARE

THREATENING TO PULL US

APART.

BONDS OF TRUST AND RESPECT

ARE FRAYING.

AND JUST AS WITH OUR

FOUNDERS, THERE ARE NO

GUARANTEES.

IT TRULY IS UP TO US.

WE HAVE TO DECIDE WHETHER

WE WILL ALL WORK TOGETHER

SO WE CAN ALL RISE

TOGETHER.

Jennifer: NOW THE

STAGE IS SET.

HILLARY CLINTON AND DONALD

TRUMP MEET FOR THE FIRST

OF THEIR THREE DEBATES

SEPTEMBER 26th.

LET THE FIREWORKS BEGIN.

JENNIFER WISHON REPORTING

FROM THE DEMOCRATIC

NATIONAL CONVENTION IN

PHILADELPHIA.

TURNING OVERSEAS TO

SYRIA, WHERE GOVERNMENT

FORCES BACKED BY RUSSIA

AND THE UNITED STATES ARE

MAKING MAJOR GAINS AGAINST

THE REBELS IN THE CITY OF

ALEPPO.

AS JIHADI GROUPS, MORE

TERRORISTS WILL FLEE FROM

SYRIA TO EUROPE.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

Reporter: SYRIAN

GOVERNMENT TROOPS

CELEBRATE IN ALEPPO,

SHOUTING, MY SOUL, MY

BLOOD, I GIVE MYSELF FOR

SYRIA.

THEY JUST RECAPTURED A

MAJOR SECTION OF SYRIA'S

SECOND LARGEST CITY, ONE

THAT HAS BEEN OCCUPIED BY

ISIS.

THE SYRIAN STATE NEWS

AGENCY SAYS DOZENS OF

JIHADISTS HAVE LAID DOWN

THEIR WEAPONS IN THE

NORTHERN SECTION OF THE

CITY.

THE GOVERNMENT'S VICTORY

CAUSED PRESIDENT ASSAD TO

ANNOUNCE THE OPENING OF A

HUMANITARIAN CORRIDOR, SO

FOOD, WATER, AND OTHER

RELIEF CAN GET IN AND

PEOPLE GET OUT.

IN DAMASCUS, I ASKED IF

HUMANITARIAN AID IS

GETTING TO PEOPLE PEOPLE IN NEED

THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY?

THERE IS DIFFICULTY IN

SOME AREAS, BUT WE HOPE

WITH THE CEASE-FIRE AND

THE DELIVER OF

HUMANITARIAN AID, THE

SITUATION WILL LITTLE BIT

BE IMPROVED.

IT IS A LONG WAY, BUT I

THINK IT IS A GOOD START.

Reporter: HOW ARE THE

CHRISTIANS DOING IN

ALEPPO?

THE CHRISTIANS IN

ALEPPO ARE LIVING UNDER A

DIFFICULT SITUATION, LIKE

EVERYBODY.

AND WE DO HOPE THAT THAT

SITUATION WILL NOT GET

WORSE.

Reporter: SO MORE

THAN FIVE YEARS NOW INTO

THIS WAR, THE PEOPLE HERE

IN DAMASCUS AND ELSEWHERE

IN SYRIA ARE GROWING

TIRED.

THEY WANT PEACE.

SO FAR THE TALKS IN GENEVA

ARE A BIT SHAKY, AND THE

CEASE-FIRE IS BARELY

HOLDING.

AND LIFE HAS GOTTEN WORSE

IN MANY AREAS OF THE

COUNTRY.

THIS IS THE AFTERMATH OF A

BOMB BLAST NEAR THE SYRIAN

BORDER.

ISIS CLAIMED

RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE

ATTACK IN THE CAPITAL CITY

OF KURDISTAN.

AT LEAST 50 PEOPLE WERE

KILLED AND DOZENS MORE

INJURED.

HOWEVER, THE SYRIAN

GOVERNMENT IS MAKING MAJOR

GAINS ON THE BATTLE FIELD.

IF IT REGAINS CONTROL OF

ALL OF ALEPPO, IT WOULD BE

A MAJOR BLOW TO ISIS AND

OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS.

BUT F.B.I. DIRECTOR JAMES

COMEY WARNS AS THE ISLAMIC

STATE IS CRUSHED IN SYRIA

AND IRAQ, HUNDREDS OF

TERRORISTS WILL PULL OUT

OF THE REGION AND INTO

EASTERN EUROPE.

IT WILL BE 10 TIMES WORSE

THAN THE PULLOUT IN

AFGHANISTAN IN THE

1980s.

IN THE MEANTIME, THE

UNITED NATIONS HOPES TO

CONVENE A NEW ROUND OF

SYRIAN PEACE TALKS IN

AUGUST.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Mark: THIS WEEK'S

ATTACK ON A CATHOLIC

CHURCH IN FRANCE

REPRESENTS A MAJOR STEP

FOR ISIS TERRORISTS.

IT IS THE FIRST ASSAULT ON

A CHURCH IN THE WEST.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

SOME FEAR IT WON'T BE THE

LAST.

Chris: WHEN TWO

ISIS-INSPIRED TERRORISTS

MURDERED 86-YEAR-OLD

CATHOLIC PRIEST JACQUES

HAMEL IN A FRENCH TOWN, IT

SENT SHOCKWAVES THROUGH

FRANCE AND THE WESTERN

WORLD.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

THEY'VE BEEN SUFFERING

THIS KIND OF FATE FOR

YEARS AND YEARS NOW.

THIS IS ONE OF THE SADDEST

UNTOLD OR UNFOCUSED PARTS

OF THE POST-9/11 WORLD,

THAT THE CHRISTIANS AND

THEIR MINISTERS HAVE BEEN

SUFFERING ATROCIOUSLY IN

THE MIDDLE EAST.

AND THIS WAR, THIS JIHADI

TACTIC, HAS NOW BEEN

BROUGHT TO EUROPE AND THE

CONTINENT AND WE SHOULD

PROBABLY EXPECT MORE.

Chris: IN THE PAST

SEVERAL MONTHS, ISLAMIC

TERROR HAS SWEPT OVER THE

WEST, FROM BRUSSELS TO

PARIS, NICE, AS WELL AS IN

ORLANDO, FLORIDA.

AMERICA IS THE POST

POWERFUL NATION IN THE

WORLD.

AND AFTER THOUSANDS OF

DEBT, AFTER TRILLIONS

SPENT, THE JIHADIS ARE

STILL WINNING THIS WAR,

THERE IS NO EXCUSE.

Chris: DR. SABESTIAN

GORKA SAYS THE REFUSAL TO

NAME THE ENEMY IS THE

REASON FOR MANY LOSSES.

UNDER TODAY'S OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION, YOU CAN'T

TALK ACCURATELY ABOUT WHO

THE ENEMY IS.

YOU CAN'T MENTION

RELIGION.

WORDS SUCH AS "JIHAD" ARE

OFFICIALLY PROHIBITED WHEN

YOU TALK TO OUR MILITARY

OR WHEN YOU PROVIDE

TRAINING TO OUR FEDERAL

LAW ENFORCEMENT, AND

YOU'RE NOT EVEN SUPPOSED

TO DISCUSS THESE ISSUES.

Chris: IN HIS NEW

BOOK, "DEFEATING JIHAD,

THE WINNABLE WAR," HE SAYS

WE NEED TO TAKE A CLOSE

LOOK AT THE COLD WAR.

HOW DID WE WIN THAT

WAR?

WE DIDN'T FIRE A SHOT ON

NOVEMBER 9th.

WE WON IT BY

DELEGITIMIZING THEIR

MESSAGE.

BY MAKING COMMUNISM LOOK

BANKRUPT.

BY MAKING THE PEOPLE

BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN

WANT TO TAKE IT APART

THEMSELVES, WITH THEIR OWN

HANDS.

THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO DO

TODAY.

Chris: AND HE

BELIEVES THE WEST NEEDS TO

ACTIVELY EMPOWER MUSLIM

NATIONS, LIKE JORDAN AND

EGYPT, TO TAKE ON ISIS,

AND RECOGNIZE ISLAMIC

EXTREMISM FOR WHAT IT IS.

THE IDEA YOU CAN'T CALL

IT JIHADI, THAT HAS TO BE

JETTISON ON DAY ONE.

TALK ABOUT THE ENEMY, AS

THEY TALK ABOUT

THEMSELVES, TRUTHFULLY.

AND RECOGNIZE THEY ARE

EVIL.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Mark: UP NEXT, A WEEK

TO HEAR FROM GOD.

WHY BIBLE TEACHER A ANN

GRAHAM LOTTS IS TEACHING

AMERICA TO STOP AND LISTEN

TO GOD'S VOICE.

Mark: POLICE IN SAN

DIEGO SAY ONE POLICE

OFFICER HAS DIED AND

ANOTHER IS UNSURGERY AFTER

A SHOOTING LATE THURSDAY

NIGHT.

AUTHORITIES SAY THE TWO

OFFICERS WERE SHOT IN A

SAN DIEGO NEIGHBORHOOD,

AND A SUSPECT IS

REPORTEDLY IN CUSTODY.

IT IS NOT KNOWN YET WHAT

LED TO THE VIOLENCE, WHICH

HAPPENED IN THE

SOUTHEASTERN PART OF TOWN.

THE POLICE SCOURED THE

AREA FOR OTHER POSSIBLE

SUSPECTS AND TOLD

NEIGHBORS TO STAY INDOORS.

> PRESIDENT RONALD

REAGAN'S SON IS SPEAKING

OUT ABOUT THE RELEASE OF

THE MAN WHO TRIED TO KILL

HIS FATHER.

IN A TWEET, MICHAEL REAGAN

HAD THIS TO SAY ABOUT JOHN

HINKLEY, WHO WILL SOON BE

RELEASED FROM A MENTAL

HOSPITAL.

HE WROTE, "MY FATHER DID

MORE THAN JUST SAY THE

LORD'S PRAYER.

HE LIVED IT BY FORGIVING

HINKLEY.

MAYBE WE SHOULD DO THE

SAME."

A FEDERAL JUDGE RULED HE

IS NO LONGER A RISK TO

HIMSELF OR OTHER PEOPLE,

AND HE WILL LIVE WITH HIS

MOTHER IN A VIRGINIA

NEIGHBORHOOD.

> ANN GRAHAM LOTTS, THE

DAUGHTER OF BILLY GRAHAM,

IS TEAMING UP WITH A PAIR

OF BIBLE MINISTRIES TO

ENCOURAGE CHRISTIANS TO

HEAR FROM GOD.

SHE IS PARTNERING WITH

BIBLE BUBBLE APP

U-VERSION.

AND SHE WANTS TO ENCOURAGE

PEOPLE TO LISTEN TO THE

WORD OF GOD READ OUT LOUD

EVERY DAY.

THE INITIATIVE IS CALLED "

"888."

Reporter: ANN GRAHAM

BELIEVED IF WE COULD TAKE

THE EIGHTH MONTH IN

AUGUST, AND TAKE EIGHT

DAYS, FOR OUGH EIGHT HOURS, WE

COULD SEE PEOPLE COME TO

FATE AND MAYBE BRING ABOUT

REVIVAL LIKE THE BIBLE

TALKS ABOUT WHEN PEOPLE

HEAR THE WORD OF GOD.

888, GOD IS SPEAKING; ARE

YOU LISTENING?

Mark: IN TIMES, WHEN

THERE IS CONSTANT CHAOS

AND CONFUSION ABOUT THE

WORLD, CARL SAYS THE EVENT

IS ABOUT SWITCHING OUR

FOCUS TO GOD AND GETTING A

FRESH OUTPOURING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

THE SCRIPTURE TELLS US

VER CLEARLY THAT HEARING

THE WORD OF GOD, THAT AS

WE CONSUME IT AND ENGAGE

WITH IT, THE TRUTH OF THAT

BIBLE, MY FAITH COMES BY

HEARING THE COMPLETE WORD

OF GOD, WE SEE HAPPEN WHEN

WE HEAR THE WORD OF GOD

CONCERNING HEALING,

CONCERNING SALVATION,

CONCERNING OUR WORLD AND

OUR WORLD VIEW.

THAT'S WHEN WE SEE

TRANSFORMATION IN ENTIRE

COMMUNITIES.

Mark: IF YOU WANT TO

SIGN UP TO PARTICIPATE IN

THIS TIME TO HEAR FROM

GOD, YOU CAN FIND THE

LINKS AT cbnnews.com.

> COMING UP, FOOD IS

SCARCE AND MONEY IS

WORTHLESS.

IT MAY SOUND LIKE

SOMETHING OUT OF

REVELATION, BUT IT IS

HAPPENING NOW IN

VENEZUELA.

Mark: THE COUNTRY OF

VENEZUALA IS IN THE MIDST

OF A MELTDOWN.

PEOPLE ARE RUNNING OUT OF

EVEN BASIC ESSENTIALS,

LIKE TOOTHPASTE AND TOILET

PAPER.

NOW BORDER TOWN IN

COLOMBIA IS OPENING ITS

BORDERS FOR THE FIRST TIME

IN ALMOST A YEAR.

CHUCK HOLTON BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Reporter: CIVIL

UNREST IN VENEZUALA, AS

THE COUNTRY CONTINUES ITS

SLIDE INTO A SOCIALIST

BLACK HOLE.

LOW OIL PRICES AND RAMPID

CORRUPTION CAUSES

DESTRUCTION.

REPORTS ARE SURFACING FROM

AROUND THE COUNTRY OF

PEOPLE HUNTING DOGS, CATS,

AND PIGEONS FOR FOOD.

AND DEMONSTRATIONS ARE

CROPPING UP TO PROTEST THE

HARSH CONDITIONS.

CUCCU TCUTA IS A CITY OF

ALMOST 1,000.

THE SEVERE SHORTAGES ARE

CHANGING THAT.

THE PEOPLE ARE DEFYING THE

BORDER CLOSURES IN MASS,

WITH OVER 100,000 PEOPLE

CROSSING THIS BRIDGE IN

THE SPACE OF ONE WEEKEND.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE

STREAMING BACK ACROSS THE

BORDER INTO SAN ANTONIO,

VENEZUALA, AFTER COMING

ACROSS INTO COLOMBIA

YESTERDAY, TO BUY THINGS

THEY JUST CAN'T GET

ANYMORE IN VENEZUALA.

THINGS LIKE TOILET PAPER,

TOOTHPASTE, RICE, SUGAR,

VERY SIMPLE, EVERYDAY

ITEMS.

BUT THEY'RE SAYING THAT

THE STORES THERE ARE

EMPTY, AND THE PEOPLE ARE

GOING HUNGRY.

RAUL PENATA HAD TO SKIP

MEALS IN ORDER TO BE ABLE

TO FEED HIS CHILDREN.

THERE IS NO MEDICINE,

BARELY ANY FOOD.

THE FOOD THE COUNTRY

PRODUCES ISN'T ENOUGH FOR

EVERYONE.

Reporter: SEVERAL

MONTHS AGO, RAUL ESCAPED

WITH HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN

TO COLOMBIA.

SINCE THE BORDER IS

CLOSED, WE HAD TO PAY A

BRIBE TO CLOSE, AND OUR

FAMILI STAYED BEHIND.

Reporter: BUT THE

SITUATION ISN'T MUCH

BETTER FOR VENEZUALAN

REFUGEES INSIDE COLOMBIA.

JOBS ARE SO SCARCE, MANY

TURN TO PROSTITUTION OR

CRIME.

WHILE THOSE WHO BRING

MONEY WITH THEM FIND THAT

IT DOESN'T LAST LONG.

ONE MONTH'S PAY ONLY

COVERS ABOUT TWO DAYS OF

FOOD.

Reporter: THIS BRINGS

TO LIGHT A BIGGER PROBLEM:

MANY VENEZUALANS CRY FOR

JOY WHEN THEY SEE FULLY

STOCKED SHELVES, ONLY TO

CRY AGAIN WHEN THEY FIND

HOW LITTLE THEIR MONEY

WILL BUY.

THIS GROCERY STORE SITS

ONLY A FEW HUNDRED METERS

FROM THE BORDER CROSSING.

SHE IS DOING A VERY BRISK

BUSINESS.

THE PEOPLE DON'T KNOW

HOW LITTLE THEIR MONEY

WILL BUY HERE.

SO THEY FILL THEIR CARTS.

AND WHEN THEY COME TO THE

REREGISTER, THEY FIND THEY

ONLY HAVE ENOUGH MONEY FOR

THE ESSENTIALS.

Reporter: IN 2012,

THESE WERE WORTH ABOUT 25

CENTS A PIECE, BUT TODAY

ONE DOLLAR WILL BUY 100

BOLIVARS.

AND THERE MAY BE AN

INCREASE OF INFLATION BY

16% NEXT YEAR.

THEY SAID, TO BUY A LOAF

OF BREAD, I WOULD ALMOST

NEED A BAG FULL OF THIS

CURRENCY, BUT THE ONLY

PROBLEM IS THERE IS NO

BREAD IN VENEZUALA.

LOCAL CHURCHES ARE

STEPPING IN TO HELP WITH

CARE PACKAGES AND EVEN

PROVIDE HOUSING FOR THEIR

NEIGHBORS WHO ARE IN NEED.

IN THE MEANTIME, COLOMBIA

AND VENEZUALA ARE IN TALKS

TO REOPEN THIS BORDER AS A

HUMANITARIAN CORRIDOR ON A

MORE PERMANENT BASIS.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

AT FIRST IT WAS A LITTLE

DIFFICULT, BUT THANKS TO

GOD AND TO THE CHURCH THAT

HELPED US TO BE ABLE TO

LIVE HERE, WELL, HERE WE

ARE.

Reporter: FROM

COLOMBIA, I'M CHUCK HOLTON

FOR CBN NEWS.

Mark: DEFINITELY

IMPORTANT TO PRAY FOR THE

PEOPLE OF VENEZUALA AND

COLOMBIA, BOTH.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Mark: THANKS FOR

STAYING WITH US.

THE WEEKEND IS HERE, AND

YOU MAY BE THINKING ABOUT

HEADING TO THE MOVIES.

SO LET'S TURN NOW TO

"FOCUS ON THE FAMILY"

ENTERTAINMENT DEPARTMENT

FOR APLUGGED IN REVIEW OF

"STAR TREK BEYOND."

I'M TRYING TO BE YOUR

DAD.

NOW I'M WONDERING WHAT IT

MEANS TO BE YOU.

IN THE FILM "STAR TREK

BEYOND," IT IS THREE YEARS

INTO THE DIFFICULT

FIVE-YEAR SPACE EXPLORING

OF THE ENTERPRISE, AND

CAPTAIN JAMES T.KIRK IS

BEGINNING TO WONDERING

WHAT ALL OF THE DEEP SPACE

WANDERING IS REALLY

ACCOMPLISHING.

HE IS THINKING MAYBE IT IS

TIME TO HANG UP HIS YELLOW

SHIRT AND TAKE A POSITION

AT A TOWN CALLED YORKTOWN.

BUT THAT'S WHERE A FEMALE

ALIEN SHOWS UP AT THE

BASE, BEGGING FOR SOME

HELP FOR HER SHIP MATES

WHO ARE STRANDED.

THE RESCUE IS A JOB ONLY

THE INTREPID KIRK AND HIS

CREW ARE ABLE TO HANDLE.

THEY SET OFF TO HELP, BUT

SOON FIND OUT THEY'VE BEEN

LURED INTO A TRAP.

A MENACING WARLORD NAMED

CLAW HAS BEEN WATCHING THE

FEDERATION'S MOVEMENT FROM

A DISTANCE.

AND HE KNOWS HOW THEY

WORK.

HE KNOWS THEIR WEAKNESSES,

AND HE KNOWS THAT

DESTROYING THIS CAPTAIN IS

THE KEY TO ALL OF HIS

MALEVOLENT PLANS.

OUR CAPTAIN WILL COME

THROUGH.

MERCY WILL BE THE LAST

THING ON HIS MIND.

THIS REBOOTED STAR TREK

FRANCHISE IS A SNAPPY,

HIGH-OCTANE ADVENTURE.

IT GOES BACK TO THE

SERIES' ROOTS, SLOWING

DOWN LONG ENOUGH TO TALK

ABOUT THE TREKKIE THINGS

OF FRIENDSHIP, UNITY, AND

THE WILLINGNESS OF THE ONE

TO SACRIFICE EVERYTHING

FOR THE MANY.

NOW, THERE ARE A FEW PLOT

HOLES HERE, AND THERE IS

QUITE A BIT OF BLASTING

VIOLENCE, AND THERE IS A

BIT OF FOUL LANGUAGE.

BUT FOR TEENS ON UP, I'M

GIVING IT THREE AND A HALF

BEAM ME UPS FOR FAMILY

FRIENDLINESS.

PLUGGING YOU INTO THE

MOVIES, I'M BOB

WALLASHEFSKI FOR "FOCUS ON

THE FAMILY'S" PLUGGED IN

MOVIE REVIEW.

Mark: THAT IS GOING

TO DO IT FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."
