MEXICO.

WE'LL HEAR WHY TRUMP SAYS

HE STILL PLANS TO BUILD A

WALL IF HE BECOMES

SEX TRAFFICKING, WHY THOSE

FOR JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

FRESH OFF A TRIP FROM

MEXICO, DONALD TRUMP IS

TALKING IMMIGRATION

POLICY.

HE MADE IT CLEAR HE HAS NO

INTENTION OF SOFTENING HIS

STANCE, REITERATING THE

NEED FOR A WALL, AND

DRAWING CRITICISM FROM HIS

DEMOCRATIC OPPONENTS.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THIS

STORY.

Reporter: THERE WAS

NO SUGAR-COATING IT,

DONALD TRUMP STICKING WITH

HIS HARD STANCE LAST NIGHT

IN ARIZONA DURING A MAJOR

SPEECH ON IMMIGRATION.

WE WILL BUILD A GREAT

WALL ALONG THE SOUTHERN

BORDER.

AND MEXICO WILL PAY FOR

THE WALL.

Reporter: THE

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

NOMINEE OUTLINED A

HARD-LINE SET OF PROPOSALS

FOR TACKLING ILLEGAL

IMMIGRATION, PROMISING TO

FIRST TIME ON DEPORTING

ILLEGALS WHO HAVE

COMMITTED CRIMES.

DAY ONE, MY FIRST HOUR

IN OFFICE, THOSE PEOPLE

ARE GONE.

ZERO TOLERANCE FOR

CRIMINAL ALIENS, ZERO,

ZERO.

I AM GOING TO CREATE A NEW

SPECIAL DEPORTATION

TASKFORCE.

Reporter: UNDER HIS

PRESIDENCY, TRUMP SAID

THERE WOULD BE NO AMNESTY,

ADDING THAT NO ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANT WILL BE

LEGALIZED WITHOUT FIRST

LEAVING AND COMING BACK

THE CORRECT WAY.

IT IS OUR RIGHT, AS A

SOVEREIGN NATION, TO

CHOOSE IMMIGRANTS THAT WE

THINK ARE THE LIK LIKEST TO

THRIVE.

Reporter: HE PLANS TO

IN FORCE CURRENT

IMMIGRATION LAWS.

THIS ALL COMES ON THE

HEELS OF A SURPRISE TRIP

TO MEXICO BY THE

REPUBLICAN NOMINEE.

IN HIS MEETING WITH

PRESIDENT NIETO, HE

DEFENDED THE RIGHT OF THE

UNITED STATES TO BUILD A

BORDER WALL.

IT WAS A THOUGHTFUL AND

SUBSTANTIVE CONVERSATION,

AND IT WILL GO ON FOR A

WHILE.

AND IN THE END, WE'RE ALL

GOING TO WIN.

BOTH COUNTRIES.

WE'RE ALL GOING TO WIN.

Reporter: TRUMP SAID

THE TWO MEN DIDN'T DISCUSS

WHO WOULD PAY FOR THE COST

OF THAT WALL.

BUT NIETO TWEETED: "AT THE

START OF THE CONVERSATION

WITH DONALD TRUMP, I MADE

IT CLEAR THAT MEXICO WILL

NOT PAY FOR THE WALL."

AND HILLARY CLINTON TOOK

TO TWITTER TO BLAST

TRUMP'S VISIT TO MEXICO.

TWEETING: TRUMP JUST

FAILED HIS FIRST

DIPLOMATIC TEST."

IT TAKES MORE THAN A

YEAR OF INSULTS AND

INSINUATIONS BY DROPPING

IN ON OUR NEIGHBORS FOR A

FEW HOURS AND THEN FLYING

HOME AGAIN.

THAT IS NOT HOW IT WORKS.

Reporter: IN THE

POLLS, TRUMP IS CLOSING

THE GAP WITH CLINTON.

THE TWO TIED IN A FOUR-WAY

RACE WITH CLINTON AT 41%,

AND TRUMP AT 39.

NOW TIED WITH TRUMP AMONG

REGISTERED VOTERS IN THE

LATEST ABC NEWS

"WASHINGTON POST" POLL.

BUT WITH CRITICAL DEBATES

YET TO COME, A LOT CAN

STILL HAPPEN BETWEEN NOW

AND ELECTION DAY, NOW JUST

A LITTLE OVER TWO MONTHS

AWAY.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE INTERNAL

REVENUE SERVICE DISCOVERED

MORE THAN ONE MILLION U.S.

TAXPAYERS HAD THEIR

IDENTITIES STOLEN BY

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

THEY FLAGGED NEARLY ONE

MILLION RETURNS THAT

APPEARED TO HAVE A STOLEN

SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER.

BUT A WATCHDOG REVEALS

THAT THE I.R.S. NEVER TOLD

ANY OF THE VICTIMS.

THE INVESTIGATORS FIRST

ALERTED THE I.R.S. TO THE

PROBLEM FIVE YEARS AGO,

BUT IT IS STILL NOT FIXED.

THE AGENCY HAS SAID THEY

ARE WORKING TO FIND A

SOLUTION.

> THE U.S. SUPREME COURT

IS REFUSING TO REINSTATE

NORTH CAROLINA'S VOTER

I.D. RULE.

THEY WILL NOT NEED TO SHOW

PHOTO I.D. WHEN CASTING

THEIR BALLOTS IN THE

BATTLEGROUND STATE.

AND THE STATE WILL ALLOW

17 DAYS OF EARLY VOTING,

AND THAT IS EXPECTED TO

BENEFIT DEMOCRATS SINCE

DEMOCRATS HAVE

HISTORICALLY FAVORED EARLY

VOTING.

HILLARY CLINTON HAS

BEEN ACCUSED OF EN DEATH

ENDANGERING NATIONAL

SECURITY FOR USING HER

GOVERNMENT E-MAILS WHEN

SHE WAS SECRETARY OF

STATE.

ONE SMALL WATCHDOG GROUP

HAS BEEN BEHIND THE MOVE

TO GET THOSE RECORDS

RELEASED.

JENNA BROWDER BRINGS US

THE STORY OF JUDICIAL

WATCH.

Reporter: NEW

INVESTIGATIONS IN HILLARY

CLINTON'S E-MAILS.

AN OLD FIRE GIVEN NEW

LIFE.

HILLARY CLINTON'S

E-MAILS AGAIN THE TOPIC OF

A HEARING IN WASHINGTON.

Reporter: NEARLY

15,000 UNCOVERED E-MAILS

DISCOVERED BY THE F.B.I.

IT IS THE INTERMINGLING

OF INTERESTS AND DONATIONS

AND FAVORS BEING DONE.

Reporter: THIS LATEST

BATCH SHOWING CLOSE LINKS

BETWEEN HILLARY CLINTON'S

STATE DEPARTMENT AND THE

CLINTON FOUNDATION.

THE CONSERVATIVE

WATCHDOG GROUP, JUDICIAL

WATCH.

JUDICIAL WATCH.

Reporter: THE GROUP

BEHIND IT ALL, JUDICIAL

WATCH, A SMA SMALL BUT

INFLUENTIAL WATCHDOG, MADE

UP OF ONLY ABOUT 50

PEOPLE.

WE'VE BEEN BUSY.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TOM FENTON HEADS UP THE

TEAM THAT HELPS TO SHAPE

THE MEDIA DISCUSSION WITH

THESE LATEST REVELATIONS.

JUDICIAL WATCH IS A

NON-PARTISAN, WE'RE

NEITHER REPUBLICAN OR

CONSERVATIVES.

OUR GOAL IS TO EDUCATE THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE WHAT ITS

GOVERNMENT IS UP TO.

Reporter: AT WORK,

MOSTLY LAWYERS AND

INVESTIGATORS NOSE-DEEP IN

LITIGATION.

THE GREAT OLD AMERICAN

SYSTEM ALLOWS US TO GET

ACCESS TO THE COURTS IF

THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T

TURN OVER THOSE DOCUMENTS.

SO THE GOVERNMENT IS

FORCED TO TURN OVER

DOCUMENTS LIKE THE CLINTON

E-MAILS BECAUSE WE'RE IN

THE COURTS.

AND JUDICIAL WATCH IS

DOING THINGS IN TERMS OF

GETTING ACCESS INFORMATION

ABOUT THE I.R.S. SCANDAL,

ABOUT BENGHAZI, AND, OF

COURSE, THE CLINTON

E-MAILS THAT CONGRESS

WASN'T ABLE TO GET OR IS

UNINTERESTED IN GETTING,

AND THE REST OF THE MEDIA

ISN'T TERRIBLY INTERESTED

IN GETTING.

Reporter: JUDICIAL

WATCH SCOOPING 60 MINUTES

AND 20/20.

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW

OFTENTIMES WE'LL SEE

SOMETHING INT NEW IN THE NEWS THAT

IS EXTRAORDINARY AND

PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT,

BUT WE'RE THE ONLY ONE

ASKING THE FOLLOWUP

QUESTIONS TO GOVERNMENT

AGENCIES TO FIND OUT THE

DETAIL.

WE SUED THE BUSH

ADMINISTRATION TWICE AS

MUCH AS WE SUED THE

CLINTON ADMINISTRATION.

NOW, THEY'RE COMPLETELY

OPPOSED TO TRANSPARENCY

AND FIGHT US REPEATEDLY.

Reporter: DONALD

TRUMP HAMMERED CLINTON ON

THIS SPECIFIC ISSUE THAT

WILL NOT GO AWAY FOR HER

CAMPAIGN.

Reporter: AND FOR

THOSE SKEPTICAL ABOUT THE

TIMING OF THE RELEASE OF

THESE LATEST E-MAILS...

SHE TRIED TO SUPPRESS

THIS FOR YEARS.

THE COVERUP UNRAVELED.

A LOT OF THE DOCUMENTS

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WITH

THE FOUNDATION WERE GIVEN

TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT BY

ABEDIN BACK IN SEPTEMBER

OF 2015, AND WE'RE ONLY

GETTING THEM NOW.

Reporter: FENTON SAYS

WE CAN EXPECT MORE

REVELATIONS IN THE DAYS

LEADING UP TO THE ELECTION

AND EVEN AFTER.

WE'RE GOING TO KEEP ON

PURSUING THE CLINTON

E-MAILS, WE'RE GOING TO

KEEP ON ASKING QUESTIONS

OF THE GOVERNMENT, NO

MATTER WHO WINS, TRUMP OR

CLINTON.

Reporter: AND THAT

MEANS FANNING THE FLAMES

TO STOMP OUT SECRECY SO IN

THE END THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE DON'T GET BURNED.

IN WASHINGTON, D.C., JENNA

BROWDER, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE AMERICAN

CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE

FOIS SUING THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION FOR DOING

NOTHING TO STOP GENOCIDE.

THERE WERE OTHER

COUNTRIES TALKING ABOUT

IT, BUT THE U.S. DIPLOMATS

WERE TOTALLY SILENT.

WE WEREN'T HEARING

ANYTHING FROM OUR

ADMINISTRATION.

WE WEREN'T SEEING ACTION

AT THE SECURITY COUNCILS.

Efrem: THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS STILL

SILENT AND HAS UNTIL THE

END OF SEPTEMBER TO

RESPOND TO THE LAWSUIT.

WE HAVE A DUTY TO ACT,

AND ONE OF THE THINGS WE

CAN DO IS TO TALK ABOUT

IT.

IT IS NOT A PLEASANT THING

TO TALK ABOUT, BUT

ESPECIALLY BECAUSE IT IS

HAPPENING THE OUR OWN

BROTHERS AND SISTERS, OR

FELLOW CHRISTIANS, I THINK

WE HAVE A DUTY TO TELL

EACH OTHER AND INFORM

OTHER CHRISTIANS ABOUT IT.

Efrem: COMING UP, AN

EXPLOSIVE REPORT YOU JUST

HAVE TO SEE TO BELIEVE.

MUSLIMS RAISE GANGS,

TARGETING GIRLS BY THE

THOUSANDS, BUT THE TRUTH

IS BEING SILENCED BY

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

SCANDAL IN BRITAIN.

MUSLIM RAPE GANGS.

YOU MAY NOT HAVE HEARD

MUCH ABOUT IT.

IT HAS BEEN COVERED UP BY

THE MEDIA AND THE

GOVERNMENT.

BUT NOW WE'RE ABOUT TO

SHOW YOU THE ENTIRE STORY.

AND IT IS SHOCKING.

DALE HURD BRINGS US THIS

INCREDIBLE STORY FROM

LONDON.

Reporter: SOME

SCANDALS ARE SO MASSIVE

THAT THEY'RE SIMPLY HARD

TO BELIEVE, BUT THIS ONE

IS TRUE.

AS MANY AS ONE MILLION

WHITE ENGLISH CHILDREN MAY

HAVE BEEN THE VICTIMS OF

MUSLIM RAPE GANGS, BETTER

KNOWN AS "GROOMING GANGS."

IN TOWNS UP AND DOWN GREAT

BRITAIN.

POLICY ANALYST GEORGE

IGLER.

WHEN YOU COUNTER AN

ISSUE THAT IS JUST SO

UNBELIEVABLE, SO OUTSIDE

YOUR FRAME OF REFERENCE

AND UNDERSTANDING, THE

IMMEDIATE HUMAN REACTION

IS JUST NOT WANTING TO

BELIEVE IT AT ALL.

Reporter: PERHAPS

EVEN HARDER TO BELIEVE IS

WHILE THERE

HAVE BEEN

PROSECUTIONS, BRITISH

AUTHORITIES HAVE STILL NOT

STOPPED THIS CRIMINAL

ACTIVITY.

THERE IS A PARTICULAR

PROBLEM INVOLVING

PAKISTANI-HERITAGE MEN WHO

TARGET YOUNG, VULNERABLE,

WHITE ENGLISH WORDS.

NOT MY WORDS, BUT A MEMBER

OF PARLIAMENT, JACK STRAW,

WHO SAID THEY SAID THE

WHITE ENGLISH GIRLS ARE,

QUOTE,"EASY MEAT."

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

CALCULATIONS BASED ON

CONVICTIONS SHOWS THAT A

BRITISH MUSLIM MALE IS 170

TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE

PART OF A SEX GROOMING

GANG THAN A NON-MUSLIM,

AND THERE ARE NO RECORDED

INSTANCES OF NON-MUSLIMS

DOING THIS TO MUSLIM GIRLS

AS PART OF A CRIMINAL

ENTERPRISE.

IN ONE LOCAL JURISDICTION,

IT WAS ESTIMATED THAT SIX

OUT OF SEVEN MUSLIM MALES

EITHER KNEW ABOUT OR WERE

PART OF A GROOMING GANG.

WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE IS

ANY EXAMPLE OF NON-MUSLIM

MEN

TARGETING MUSLIM GIRLS

FOR THIS ORGANIZED FORM OF

ABUSE.

SO THE ARGUMENT THAT THIS

CRIME EXISTS EVERY IS NOT

ONLY FALSE, BUT IS BEING

DELIBERATELY CULTIVATED BY

THE MEDIA AND BY THE

GOVERNMENT INQUIRY THAT IS

KICKING THE CAN DOWN THE

ROAD.

Reporter: THE

GROOMING GANGS HAVE BEEN

TRACED BACK TO THE

1980s, AND SOME AS YOUNG

AS NINE YEARS OLD WERE

WOOED OUR GROOMED BY

TEENAGED MUSLIM BOYS

CALLED "ROAROMEOS," AND EVEN

BY GROUP OF MUSLIM MEN WHO

HUNG AROUND SCHOOL GATES.

THE PLAN WAS TO MAKE THE

GIRL FEEL IMPORTANT, AND

SHE WAS GIVEN GIFTS AND

DRUGS.

BUT SHE WAS BEING GROOMED

TO BE A PROSTITUTE.

THEN CAME THE GANG RAPES.

THE GIRLS WERE THREATENED

WITH DEATH IF THEY TRIED

TO FLEE.

IT IS NOT JUST SEXUAL

ABUSE.

IT IS UNSPEAKABLE LEVELS

OF VIOLENCE, VICTIMS BEING

RAPED WITH KNIVES.

VICTIMS BEING RAPED WITH

BOTTLES.

VICTIMS HAVING THEIR

TONGUE NAILED TO TABLES.

AND THESE ARE GIRLS

SOMETIMES PICKED UP FROM

CHILDREN'S HOMES ON A

FRIDAY, AND ARE BEING

RAPED DURING THE COURSE OF

THE WEEKEND BY HUNDREDS OF

MEN, AND RETURNED WITH

BLEEDING GROINS BACK TO

THE CHILDREN'S HOMES ON

MONDAY MORNING AND THEY

DON'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT

AT ALL.

Reporter: CHRISTINE'S

GOD DAUGHTER WAS PREYED ON

BY GROOMING GANGS.

THEY TRIED TO GET HER

IN THE CAR.

THEY WERE TALKING TO HER.

COME ON, COME WITH US.

WE'LL TAKE YOU HERE.

WE'LL TAKE YOU THERE.

Reporter: THE

AUTHORITIES MAKE IT SOUND

LIKE IT IS THE ENGLISH

GIRL'S FAULT?

YES.

OR THE PARENTS' FAULT.

IT IS YOUR FAULT BECAUSE

YOU HAVEN'T GOT CONTROL OF

YOUR CHILD.

IF YOU'RE A YOUNG

ENGLISH GIRL, AND YOU FIND

YOURSELF SUBJECT TO THE

PERVERSIONS OF MUSLIM MEN,

YOU EXIST IN A COUNTRY

WHERE THE FORCES OF LAW

AND ORDER DON'T EXIST AT

ALL.

Reporter: STEVEN

LEBON, FORMER LEADER OF

THE DEFENSE LEAGUE,

LEARNED A FAMILY MEMBER

HAD BEEN VICTIMIZED BY A

GROOMING GANG.

MY COUSIN WAS RAPED,

AND SHE WAS FOUND NAKED

RUNNING FROM THE MUSLIM

COMMUNITY AT AGE 13.

ALL OF THE PEOPLE SAY SHE

WAS A DRUG ADDICT, AND SHE

A DRUG ADDICT BECAUSE THEY

GOT HER HOOKED ON THEM.

Reporter: THE MUSLIMS

SAY THAT MUHAMMAD HAD SEX

WITH A NINE-YEAR-OLD WIFE.

ISIS DEFENDS SEXUAL

SLAVERY AS ISLAMIC.

SAYING THAT TAKING THEIR

WOMEN AS CONCUBINES IS

SHAR'IA OR ISLAMIC LAW.

THE REASON THESE CRIMES

WERE COVERED UP AND

CONTINUED TO THIS DAY IS

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

NO ONE WANTED TO BE CALLED

A RACIST.

THE DEFINITIVE BOOK ON

THIS SCANDAL IS "EASY

MEAT," BY PETER

McLOUGHLIN, WHO DECLINED

AN INTERVIEW FOR SAFETY

REASONS.

HE TOLD US JOURNALISTS

WOULD NOT SPEAK ABOUT IT

BECAUSE THE PURPOS PERPETRATORS

WERE MOSTLY DARK-SKINNED

AND MUSLIM.

AND THERE WAS A CODE OF

SILENCE CONCERNING WHAT

THE PUBLIC WAS ALLOWED TO

KNOW.

THESE GIRLS ARE THE

VICTIMS OF A

MULTI-CULTURAL REVOLUTION.

AND HIS ACCUSATION OF

RACISM IS POTENTIALLY THE

MOST POWERFUL POLITICAL

WEAPON KNOWN TO MEN.

IT IS ALSO AN EXAMPLE OF

WHAT CAN HAPPEN IN A

COUNTRY OF 60 MILLION

WHERE THE PRESS JUST

REFUSES TO REPORT, WHERE

ALL OF THESE AGENCIES

FAIL, FAIL TO MERELY

DISCUSS WHAT IS GOING ON.

AND IT'S ONLY GOING TO GET

WORSE FOR THIS REASON.

Reporter: THE

COVER-UP WAS EVENTUALLY

EXPOSED, AND YET THE

GROOMING GANGS CONTINUE TO

OPERATE.

ONE VICTIM TOLD A BRITISH

NEWSPAPER, NOTHING HAS

CHANGED, NOT IN THE

SLIGHTEST.

IT IS STILL THE SAME SCALE

AS BEFORE.

THEY GET SEXUAL KICKS

OUT OF RUINING THE MOST

PRECIOUS POSSESSION THAT

THOSE PEOPLE HAVE, THEIR

DAUGHTERS.

Reporter: STEVEN

LENNON WARNS THERE WILL BE

REPERCUSSIONS.

THERE WILL COME A TIME

WHEN THEY REALIZE WHAT

THEY'VE DONE, AND THEIR

COUNTRY'S PEOPLE WILL

REALIZE WHAT THEY HAVE

DONE AS WELL.

THEY HAVE SOLD US OUT.

THEY HAVE DESTROYED OUR

NATION.

THEY HAVE DESTROYED OUR

CULTURE.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS, LONDON.

Efrem: AND NEXT, THE

CUBAN CHURCH IS BOOMING

WITH A MISSIONS MOVEMENT

OF ITS OWN.

WE'LL TAKE YOU TO THE

ISLAND NATION TO SEE THIS

EXPLOSIVE GROWTH WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Efrem: FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN MORE THAN A HALF

CENTURY, A COMMERCIAL

PLANE FLEW FROM THE U.S.

TO CUBA.

THE FLIGHT REESTABLISHES

REGULAR AIR SERVICE THAT

ENDED DUE TO THE COLD WAR.

NOW ROUGHLY 300 FLIGHTS A

WEEK BEFORE CONNECT THE

U.S. WITH CUB CUBA.

THE OPENING OF THE U.S.

RELATIONS WITH CUBA IS

LEADING TO A BOOM IN

MISSIONARY OUTREACH TO THE

ISLAND NATION.

AMERICAN CHRISTIANS ARE

EXECUTED ABOUT GETTING

INTO CUBA, AND AS HEATHER

SELLS REPORT, CUBAN

CHRISTIANS HAVE ALREADY

BEGUN A MISSIONS MOVEMENT

OF THEIR OWN.

Heather: NORTH

AMERICAN CHURCHES ARE

PREPARED TO FLOOD THE

ISLAND NATION.

THEY'RE SPURRED ON BY

IMPROVED RELATIONS AND AS

TRAVEL HAS GOTTEN EASIER.

ANY LEADER THAT IS

TRYING TO FIND OUT HOW TO

TAKE HIS CHURCH TO AN

EXCITING PEACE OF

CHRISTIANITY, THEY THINK

OF CUBA.

Heather: JASON

CARLISLE SAID INTEREST

TOOK OFF LAST YEAR WHEN

PRESIDENT OBAMA MOVED TO

IMPROVE RELATIONS WITH

CUBA.

STILL, CARLISLE AND OTHER

MISSIONS LEADERS REMAIN

CAUTIOUS.

THEY WANT AMERICANS TO ACT

PRIMARILY AS LEARNERS AND

ENCOURAGERS.

THAT'S BECAUSE THE CUBAN

CHURCH IS BOOMING, AND CAN

SHARE CONSIDERABLE

EXPERIENCE WITH U.S.

CHURCHES.

ONE KEY ACCOMPLISHMENT, IT

STARTED MORE THAN 15,000

CHURCHES IN THE LAST 40

YEARS.

THE BELIEVERS ARE

GROWING INCREDIBLY, JUST

AMAZINGLY.

HOUSE CHURCHES ARE BEING

PLANTED EVERYWHERE.

Heather: THIS

CHRISTIAN-OWNED FARM

SHOWCASES THE CUBAN

CHURCH'S PASSION AND

CREATIVE APPROACH TO

SHARING THE GOSPEL.

THE FARM FUNDS A MISSION

SCHOOL, THAT TRAINS

CHURCH-APPROVED CANDIDATES

FOR A YEAR AND SENDS THEM

TO UNREACHED AREAS OF THE

ISLAND.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

THE VISION OF OPENING

SCHOOLS FOR MISSIONS WAS

PLANTED IN OUR HEARTS BY

GOD.

Heather: PASTOR JUAN

SEIZED ON A UNIQUE MOMENT

IN 2008 WHEN THE CUBAN

GOVERNMENT GAVE LAND TO

FARMERS.

HE TOOK ON FIELDS PLAGUED

WITH THORNY VEGETATION TO

FULFILL HIS VISION FOR A

SELF-SUSTAINING MINISTRY.

TODAY CLOSE TO 100 ALUMNI

HAVE ESTABLISHED NEW

CHURCHES.

WE DENT HAVE LUXURIOUS

CLASSROOMS, AND THESE

COULD BE SOME OBSTACLES TO

DO THE WORK OF THE LORD.

THESE COULD BE REASONS TO

SAY, I CAN'T DO ANYTHING,

BUT THIS DOES NOT STOP US.

WE ARE MOVED BY THE VISION

AND PASSION WE HAVE.

Heather: AND THAT

VISION AND PASSION HAS LED

TO A GLOBAL FOCUS.

> DESPITE INCREDIBLY

LIMITED RESOURCES, THE

CUBAN CHURCH HAS BEGUN A

MISSIONARY MOVEMENT OF ITS

OWN.

IT HAS ALREADY STARTED

SENDING MISSIONARIES TO

OTHER COUNTRIES.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

CUBA IS A MISSIONARY

COUNTRY.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, WE

HAVE BEEN PREPARING FOR

MANY YEARS TO SEND PEOPLE

TO OTHER COUNTRIES.

Heather: HUNDREDS OF

CUBANS HAVE RECENTLY

RESPONDED TO THE CALL TO

FOREIGN MISSIONS.

THIS COUPLE LEFT THIS

SUMMER TO WORK WITH AN

UNREACHED GROUP OF

ECUADOR.

MISSION EXPERTS MARVEL HOW

GOD HAS UNIQUELY PREPARED

CUBANS FOR THE MISSION

FIELD.

FOR STARTERS, THEY

UNDERSTAND HARDSHIP.

Through Translator:

THE NEEDS, THE SCARCITY

THAT WE HAVE GONE THROUGH

HAVE BEEN PREPARING US TO

GO.

WHAT CUBANS HAVE GROWN

UP IN IS WHAT CAN BE

REPRODUCED IN JUST ABOUT

ANY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.

PARTICULARLY IN AREAS THAT

ARE HARDER ACCESS BECAUSE

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE A

LOT OF RESOURCES.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE A

WORSHIP TEAM.

Heather: CUBAN

CHRISTIANS ALSO UNDERSTAND

A VERY SIMPLE METHOD OF

CHURCH-PLANTING.

THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE

BEEN A ACCUSTOMED TO WORKING

UNDER SEVERE LIMITATIONS

IS A GREAT V..

ADVANTAGE.

YOU TAKE THE LIVING WORD

OF GOD AND YOU TEACH IT TO

PEOPLE, AND THEY BECOME

DISCIPLES, AND

THEY

DISCIPLE PEOPLE
