OF NEW E-MAIL LEAKS.

CONTROVERSY SWIRLS AROUND

THE BILLIONAIRE'S CAMPAIGN

WHILE HILLARY CLINTON

FACES HER OWN ISSUES.

THOUSANDS OF HACKED

E-MAILS HAVE EXPOSED SOME

HARSH COMMENTS FROM INSIDE

HER CAMPAIGN.

George: FIVE WOMEN

ARE ACCUSING DONALD TRUMP

OF INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR,

AMONG THEM JESSICA LEECH.

SHE RECOUNTED THE EVENTS

TO THE "NEW YORK TIMES".

HE WAS LIKE AN OCTOPUS,

LIKE HE HAD SIX ARMS.

George: AND ANOTHER

CLAIMS THE BILLIONAIRE

KISSED HER ON THE MOUTH

WITHOUT PERMISSION WHILE

IN AN ELEVATOR IN 2009.

TRUMP'S CAMPAIGN DENIED

BOTH ACCUSATIONS, CALLING

IT COMPLETELY FALSE.

LATE ON WEDNESDAY, A THIRD

PERSON, A FORMER MISS

ARIZONA, CAME FORWARD AND

CLAIMED THAT TRUMP WOULD

WALK IN ON NAKED GIRLS

WHILE THEY WERE CHANGING

BACK STAGE.

HE CAME STROLLING RIGHT

IN.

THERE WAS NO SECOND TO PUT

A ROBE ON.

SOME GIRLS WERE TOPLESS.

George: DIXON ACCUSES

TRUMP OF TAKING ADVANTAGE

OF THE CONTEST.

I'M TELLING YOU DONALD

TRUMP WAS ON THE PAGEANT

FOR THE REASON TO UTILIZE

HIS POWER.

George: ALL OF THIS

HAPPENING AFTER A LEAKED

VIDEO SHOWED TRUMP MAKING

LEWD COMMENTS ABOUT WOMEN.

NEARLY HALF OF THE COUNTRY

STARTED VOTING EARLY THIS

WEEK AS HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE

STOOD IN LINE FROM OHIO TO

FLORIDA.

WITH BOTH CANDIDATES

HEADING INTO THE HOME

STRETCH, CLINTON, FOR HER

PART, STILL CANNOT SEEM TO

SHAKE OFF THE WEE WikiLEAKS

TRAILED.

THE GROUP DUMPED ANOTHER

1,000 E-MAILS.

ONE URGES CLINTON TO REACH

OUT TO, QUOTE,"NEEDY

LATINOS," DURING THE

PRIMARY.

THE NEW E-MAILS ALSO

SHOW MEMBERS OF THE

CLINTON TEAM VICIOUSLY

ATTACKING CATHOLICS AND

EVANGELICALS.

DID YOU SEE THAT?

NO, THE PRESS DOESN'T WANT

TO REPORT THAT ONE.

THAT COULD BE

ELECTION-CHANGING.

IT IS THE LATEST EVIDENCE

THAT IS CLINTON HAS FOR

EVERY DAY, FAITHFUL

CITIZENS.

George: AND THERE ARE

INVESTIGATIONS INTO

CLINTON'S USE OF A

PERSONAL E-MAIL SERVER

WHILE SHE WAS SECRETARY OF

STATE.

A SOURCE TELLS FOX NEWS

THAT MANY OF THE F.B.I.

AGENTS AND D.O.J.

ATTORNEYS WHO WORKED ON

THE CASE BELIEVE CLINTON

SHOULD HAVE BEEN CHARGED

AND HER SECURITY CLEARANCE

YANKED.

AND HIGH-RANKING F.B.I.

OFFICIALS SAY IT IS SAFE

TO SAY THE VAST MAJORITY

FELT SHE SHOULD BE

PROSECUTED.

Efrem: AS WE'VE BEEN

REPORTING, CONSERVATIVE

LEADERS ARE OUTRAGED AFTER

MEMBERS OF HILLARY

CLINTON'S CAMPAIGN STAFF

MOCKED CATHOLICS AND

EVANGELICALS.

JOHN PEDESTA AND JOHN

HALPA CALLING CHRISTIANS

UNAWARE.

WE SHOULD DECIDE IF THESE

ARE THE VALUES WE WANT TO

BE REPRESENTING US IN OUR

NEXT PRESIDENT.

> ANOTHER ATLANTA

HURRICANE IS BEING

DESCRIBED AS EXTREMELY

DANGEROUS, BUT THIS TIME

IT IS HEADED FORTUNATE

BERMUDA.

FORECASTERS SAY HURRICANE

NICOLE HAS STRENGTHENED

INTO A CATEGORY 4 STORM.

ITS SUSTAINED WINDS HAVE

INCREASED TO 130

MILE-AN-HOUR AND IT IS

ABOUT 180 MILES SOUTH,

SOUTHWEST OF BERMUDA.

IT IS EXPECTED TO PICK UP

SPEED AS IT HAMMERS

BERMUDA TODAY.

> AMERICAN OFFICIALS SAY

THE U.S. HAS DESTROYED

THREE RADAR SITES OFF THE

COAST OF YEMEN.

THE STRIKES FOLLOWED TWO

INCIDENTS THIS WEEK IN

WHICH MISSILES WERE FIRED

AT U.S. NAVY SHIPS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA AUTHORIZED

THE LAUNCH OF THE TOMAHAWK

MISSILES TO DESTROY THE

STRIKES.

THE STRIKES WOULD

CONDUCTED IN SELF-DEFENSE.

HE ADDED THE U.S. NEEDED

TO PROTECT PERSONNEL,

SHIPS, AND FREEDOM OF

NAVIGATION.

OFFICIALS HAVE NOT

PROVIDED INFORMATION ON

THE CASUALTIES.

> VLADIMIR PUTIN IS

EXPANDING HIS INFLUENCE IN

THE MIDDLE EAST BY

BUILDING A NAVAL BASE IN

SYRIA.

IT IS JUST ONE OF THE

LATEST MOVES BY RUSSIA AS

SOME MILITARY ANALYSTS

BELIEVE IT IS TAKING

ADVANTAGE OF THE U.S.

ELECTION TO STRENGTHEN ITS

POSITION IN SYRIA.

CHRIS MITCHELL SHOWS US

HOW IT ALSO THREATENS THE

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN

RUSSIA AND THE U.S.

Chris: GLOBAL FOREIGN

POLICY EXPERTS BELIEVE

INACTION IN THE MIDDLE

EAST, COMBINED WITH A

LAME-DUCK PRESIDENCY,

OPENED THE DOOR FOR RUSSIA

TO GAIN A POWERFUL FOOT

HOLD IN THE REGION.

THEY'RE TRYING TO

EFFECTIVELY BOMB EASTERN

ALEPPO INTO SURRENDER.

THE RUSSIANS FIGURE IT IS

A GOOD TIME TO ACHIEVE AS

MUCH AS POSSIBLE IN THE

LAST DYING MONTHS OF THE

OBAMA PRESIDENCY.

Chris: AS THE ONLY

MAJOR CITY WHERE REBELS

MAINTAIN A STRONGHOLD,

ALEPPO FACE CONSTANT

ATTACK FROM SYRIAN AND

RUSSIAN TROOPS.

THE RUSSIANS NOTICED

THERE WAS A VACUUM IN THE

MIDDLE EAST AND THEY'RE

DOING THEIR BEST TO FILL

THAT VACUUM, AND BY SO

DOING, ADVANCE RUSSIA'S

STRATEGIC INTERESTS.

Chris: BOMBING OF

CIVILIAN SITES, INCLUDING

HOSPITALS, HAS PROPERTYED PROMPTED

WASHINGTON TO CUT OFF

TALKS WITH THEM.

THEY HAVE PURE SUE PURSUED A

MILITARY COURSE WITH

HOSTILITIES.

Chris: IT IS AT ODDS

WITH THE U.S. AND WESTERN

POWERS.

THAT'S WHAT THE

RUSSIANS ARE DOING,

POURING EVERYTHING THEY

CAN POSSIBLY MUSTARD IN

ORDER TO HELP ASSAD.

BY CONTRAST, THE AMERICAN

AGENDAN BOTH SEAR SEAR SYRIA AND

IRAQ HAS BEEN EXTREMELY

CONFUSED FROM THE OUTSIDE.

Chris: THIS SYSTEM

GOT WORSE WHEN RUSSIAN

DEPLOYED A MISSILE DEFENSE

SYSTEM IN SYRIA.

IT IS NOT CLEAR WHY THE

DEPLOYMENT OF THE S-300

ANGERED OUR COLLEAGUES.

Chris: REBEL GROUPS

HAVE NO PLANES OR

BALLISTIC MISSILES.

WHAT YOU'RE SAYING TO

THE AMERICANS AND

EVERYTHING ELSE, IF YOU'RE

THINKING OF PUTTING PLANES

UP AND ACTING AGAINST OUR

ALLIES, AGAINST THE REGIME

FORCES, WE'RE READY FOR

THAT.

Chris: FOR ISRAEL,

WHICH SHARES A BORDER WITH

SYRIA, IT IS A BIG

CONCERN.

THE S-300 COMPLICATES

ISRAEL'S ABILITY TO STRIKE

IRANIAN WEAPONS CONVOYS,

MAKING THEIR WAY ACROSS

SYRIA TO HEZBOLLAH IN

LEBANON.

IN THE MEANTIME, WHAT IS

GOOD FOR THE RUSSIANS

HASN'T BEEN GOOD FOR THE

SYRIAN CIVILIANS.

AS WE ARE SYRIAN, WE

CAN'T BEAR ANYMORE, TO SEE

CHILDREN KILLED IN FRONT

OF US AND KEEP SILENT.

THE UNITED NATIONS IS

USELESS.

THEY ARE KILLERS.

THEY ARE MURDERS.

Chris: SPIRE SAYS

SINCE THE COLD WAR, THE

U.S. WAS LIKE THE SHERIFF

IN THE REGION, MAINTAINING

A DEGREE OF ORDER.

NOW THAT THAT IS GONE,

THERE IS A DIFFERENT

REALITY.

WHEN THE AMERICANS DID

NOT PURSUE THEIR STATED

INTERESTS IN SYRIA, THEN

YOU HAVE A RUTHLESS POWER,

RUSSIA, COMING IN, AND

BASICALLY TERRORIZING A

CIVILIAN POPULATION INTO

SUBMISSION BEFORE THE EYES

OF THE WORLD.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: THERE IS A

GROWING LINK BETWEEN

CRIMINALS AND TERRORISM IN

BRITAIN.

A NEW REPORT SAYS AN

INCREASING NUMBER OF

CRIMINALS ARE JOINING ISIS

AND, QUOTE,"GAINING A

GANGSTER JIHAD."

NEARLY 30% OF J JIHADISTS

WERE FORMALLY IN JAIL.

ISIS OFFERS CRIMINALS A

CHANCE AT REDEMPTION

WITHOUT HAVING TO CHANGE

THEIR BEHAVIOR.

> SATANISTS ARE ASKING

BOSTON CITY COUNCIL TO

ALLOW THEM TO HAVE THE

INVOCATION THAT KICKS OFF

THE CITY HALL MEETINGS.

IT TOLD THE COUNCIL

PRESIDENT IT WOULD BE A

BREACH OF THE FIRST

AMENDMENT FOR THEM TO TURN

DOWN THE REQUEST.

THEY STATED THAT THOSE WHO

NORMALLY GIVE THE OPENING

PRAYER ARE OVERWHELMING

CHRISTIAN.

OTHERS SATANIC CHAPTERS

HAVE MADE SIMILAR REQUESTS

IN OTHER CITIES.

> COMING UP, HELP FOR

TEENS IN TROUBLE.

SO JUST WHAT IS "HEART

LIGHT," AND HOW DOES IT

WORK?

FIND OUT AFTER THIS.

Efrem: YOUNG PEOPLE

TODAY FACE A HOST OF

PROBLEMS, FROM DEPRESSION

TO DRUGS TO QUESTIONS

ABOUT SEXUAL IDENTITY.

SO IT IS MORE IMPORTANT

NOW THAN EVER THEY FIND

THE RIGHT KIND OF HELP.

CHARLENE AARON REPORTS ON

ONE MINISTRY IN TEXAS

WHERE TROUBLED TEENS HAVE

RECEIVED HELP FOR MORE

THAN 30 YEARS.

Charlene: SITTING ON

150 ACRES, "HEART LIGHT"

MINISTRIES REACHES OUT TO

TEENAGERS STRUGGLING WITH

THE PRESSURES OF LIFE.

WHEN I THINK ABOUT

"HEART LIGHT," I THINK

ABOUT AMAZING GRACE.

I LIKE "HEART LIGHT" A

LOT BECAUSE I GET TO

RESTART MY LIFE.

Charlene: THE

MINISTRY BEGAN IN 1988, AS

A DREAM OF MARK AND JAN

GREGSTAN.

SOMEBODY CAME TO ME AND

SAID, DO YOU WANT TO LEAD

A YOUNG LIFE GROUP?

I WAS GOING TO TULSA

UNIVERSITY, AND I WAS 19

YEARS OLD, AND I SAID,

SURE.

I STARTED LEADING A YOUNG

LIFE GROUP, AND A YOUNG

MAN COMES UP TO ME AND

SAYS HE IS STRUGGLING.

Charlene: THAT IS ALL

MARK NEEDED AS HIS PASSION

AS ALWAYS BEEN HELPING

THOSE WHO STRUGGLE.

GOD HAS JUST PLACED

THESE KIDS IN OUR LIFE,

AND WE SAID, LET'S START

TAKING CARE OF KIDS.

Charlene: "HEART

LIGHT" PROVIDES INTENSIVE

COUNSELLING TO KIDS ALL

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, WHO

NEED HELP OVERCOMING

ABUSE, ADDICTION, SEXUAL

IDENTITY ISSUES, AND MORE.

BACK IN A TIME, I WAS

IN A SPOT WHERE I DIDN'T

REALLY THINK I WANTED TO

BE ALIVE ANYMORE.

A WEEK BEFORE I CAME HERE,

I TRIED TO COMMIT SUICIDE.

I JUST HAD A LOT OF

PROBLEMS, LIKE MY PARENTS

PASSING AWAY AND DRUG AND

ALCOHOL ABUSE AND SEX AND

STUFF LIKE THAT.

Charlene: THE

CHRISTIAN CAMP IS

RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF THE

COUNTRY'S FINESTo

RESIDENTIAL COUNSELLING

CENTERS.

BUT AS GREGSTAN IS QUICK

TO POINT OUT, RELIGION IS

NOT FORCED HERE.

THEY FEEL LIKE GOD HAS

ABANDONED THEM BECAUSE

THEY HAVE GROWN UP IN

CHRISTIAN HOMES, AND WHEN

THINGS GO TERRIBLY WRONG,

THEY GO, GOD DIDN'T TAKE

CARE OF ME.

SO WE FOUND TO GET THEM

INVOLVED AND GIVE THEM A

TASTE OF GOD, IS TO DO IT

THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS.

ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN

WORDS.

Charlene: THE

MINISTRY ALSO HOSTS A

RETREAT FOR PARENTS,

CREATING LASTING CHAN

FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY.

BOASTING A SUCCESS RATE OF

90%, GREGSTAN IS NOW

EXPANDING THAT POSITIVE

CHANGE WITH A NATIONAL

RADIO PROGRAM FOR PARENTS.

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE

THAT WE HAVE IS THE

PARENTS.

I LOOK AT PARENTS ALL OF

THE TIME, AND I GO, REALLY

THE PROBLEM ISN'T YOUR

KIDS; IT'S YOU.

AND IT'S TEACHING THEM

ABOUT THE CULTURE.

IT'S SHOWING THEM THAT IT

HAS CHANGED COMPLETELY.

THE WAY THAT PEOPLE ENGAGE

IS DIFFERENT.

IT IS SHOWING THEM THA THAT

SOME AN ANTIQUATED MEDGESZ METHODS

DON'T WORK.

WHEN YOU'RE JUDGEMENTAL,

IT SHUTS KIDS DOWN.

IT HAS HELPED ME A LOT

TO JUST, LIKE, GET THROUGH

MY GRIEF AND FEEL MY

EMOTIONS AND LEARN HOW TO

BE MYSELF BECAUSE I DIDN'T

REALLY KNOW HOW TO, LIKE,

DO THAT BEFORE.

IT IS, LIKE, GOOD BECAUSE

YOU HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE,

LIKE, SUPPORTING YOU HERE

AND HELPING YOU THROUGH

YOUR CHANGES.

IT IS ISOLATED, LIKE A

LITTLE BUBBLE, SO YOU CAN

WORK ON THE PROBLEMS THAT

YOU NEED TO WORK ON.

SO I'M DOING GOOD.

Charlene: THAT'S THE

GOAL GREGSTAN SET OUT TO

ACCOMPLISH ALL THOSE YEARS

AGO.

I WANT THEM TO BE SO

LOVED WHILE THEY'RE HERE,

THAT WHEN THEY LEAVE AND

GO SOME PLACE ELSE, THEY

COMPARE IT TO THE QUALITY

OF LOVE THEY HAVE

EXPERIENCED HERE.

AND THEY GO, YOU KNOW

WHAT?

LIFE MAY BE TOUGH, BUT I

WAS LOVED WHEN I WAS AT

"HEART LIGHT."

Charlene: A SENTIMENT

ECHOED FROM ONE SAVED LIFE

TO ANOTHER.

IT IS EASIER TO LOOK AT

MYSELF AND SAY, I LIKE

MYSELF NOW.

Charlene: CBN NEWS,

HALLSVILLE, TEXAS.

Efrem: UP NEXT, A MAN

ON A MISSION TO RESCUE

GIRLS SOLD INTO SLAVERY.

Efrem: GRAMMY-WINNING

CHRISTIAN BAND "FOR KING

AND COUNTRY," HAS LAUNCHED

THEIR "PRICELESS" TOUR.

NOW THEY'VE PRODUCED AND

STARRED IN A POWERFUL NEW

FILM INSPIRED BY TRUE

EVENTS, AND IT IS CALLED

"PRICELESS."

YOU LOOK BEAT.

WHAT ARE YOU HAULING?

NOTHING, REALLY.

WHY WOULD YOU HAVE TO

GO THROUGH ALL OF THAT IF

YOU'RE JUST HAULING

NOTHING.

I JUST, FOR ONCE,

WANTED TO DO THE RIGHT

THING.

I WANTED TO THANK YOU

FOR HELPING US.

WE WANT TO BE HERE.

DID I DO WHAT NEEDED TO

BE DONE?

THE GIRLS -- WHERE ARE

YOU TAKING THEM?

IT'S NOT YOUR PROBLEM.

HAPPY TRAILS.

THESE GIRLS DON'T

BELONG TO YOU.

THOSE GIRLS DON'T

BELONG TO ANYONE.

YOU GO DOWN THIS ROAD,

AND YOU CAN'T GO BACK TO

NORMAL LIFE AGAIN.

THERE ARE SOME BAD

DUDES WHO ARE GOING TO

KILL YOU.

MY FRIENDSHIP COMES AT

A COST.

THIS IS NOT WHAT LOVE

LOOKS LIKE.

I WANT TO SHUT THIS

THING DOWN.

* I SEE YOU DRESSED IN

WHITE *

HOW CAN YOU JUST LEAVE

US?

YOU HAVE TO TRUST ME.

THAT WORD IS BROKEN FOR

YOU.

I'M GOING TO MAKE THIS

RIGHT.

*

* UNMISTAKABLE,

INCOMPARABLE *

* OH, SO PRICELESS

Efrem: WE'RE JOINED

BY THE BROTHERS WHO ARE

KING AND COUNTRY, JOEL AND

LUKE SMALLBONE.

THANK YOU BOTH FOR BEING

HERE.

IT FEELS LIKE A DEJAVU

MOMENT, A WEEKLY

OCCURRENCE.

IT IS GOOD TO BE WITH YOU.

Efrem: YOU HAVE LONG

CHAMPIONED THE PRICELESS

MOVEMENT, AND TELL US WHY

IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO YOU.

YOU HAVE TO GO BACK TO

THE BEGINNING OF THE BAND.

"KING AND COUNTRY" FORMED

ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO.

AND LUKE HAD JUST GOT

MARRIED, AND I MET MY NOW

WIFE AT HIS WEDDINGMENT IT

WAS A SETUP, SHE WAS

BROUGHT FOR US TO MEET.

THIS IDEA OF LOVE AND

COMMITMENT AND

RELATIONSHIPS WAS

IMPORTANT ON OUR MINDS.

AND WE WERE CELEBRATING A

WOMAN'S WORTH.

IT WAS MET WITH THIS KIND

OF EXCITING BUT ALARMING

RESPONSE, ALMOST LIKE OUR

GENERATION WAS STARVING

FOR THIS AFFIRMATION.

SO WE WENT TO OUR BROTHER

BEN ABOUT TWO AND A HALF

YEARS AGO, WHO IS A

FILM-MAKER, AND WE SAID,

WE REALLY FEEL LIKE THERE

IS A MESSAGE THAT NEEDS TO

BE SHARED, A STORY THAT

NEEDS TO BE TOLD.

SO FROM THE INCEPTION OF

THE STORY TO ACTING IN THE

FILM, LUKE PRODUCING IT,

AND NOW TO RELEASING IT

THEORETICALLY ON

OCTOBER 14th NATIONWIDE,

WE'VE BEEN IN EVERY PART

OF THE PROCESS.

IT HAS BEEN EXCITING AND

PREPOSTEROUS AND WE ARE

READY.

Efrem: SO HOW DID YOU

FIND THE JAMES STEVENS'

STORY.

IT IS INSPIRED BY TRUE

EVENTS.

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO MAKE

IT A BOOK AND A MOVIE AS

WELL.

OUR BROTHER BEN, WHO

DIRECTED THE FILM, WAS

EDITING A DOCUMENTARY

PROBABLY ABOUT 10 YEARS

AGO.

AND IT WAS ABOUT A MAN WHO

WAS KIND OF ON AN

ORGANIZED CRIME SIDE OF

THINGS, AND HE WAS TALKING

ABOUT HOW HIS LIFE HAD

KIND OF RADICALLY CHANGED.

AND THOUGH HE WAS ON THE

WRONG SIDE OF THE LAW,

WHEN HE LIFE CHANGED, HE

WAS, LIKE, WHAT IF I WAS

TO USE ALL OF THE

KNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE FOR

THE ORGANIZED CRIME AND

USE IT FOR GOOD.

THAT REALLY STUCK WITH OUR

BROTHER BEN.

WHEN WE CAME TO HIM WITH

THIS "PRICELESS" IDEA, HE

SAID, I HAVE THIS DUDE,

WHO I EDITED MANY, MANY

YEARS AGO, WHAT IF WE

BASED THIS FILM AROUND HIM

LOOSELY.

AND IT IS THRILLING TO SEE

THE RESULTS.

AND AS WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO

GET THIS MOVIE IN FRONT OF

PEOPLE, AND IT'S VERY,

VERY SPECIAL.

Efrem: THE MOVIE

OPENS ON FRIDAY.

WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT

THE STORY, OR THE PLOT,

WITHOUT GIVING TOO MUCH

AWAY?

YEAH.

SO JAMES STEVENS, WHO IS

THE CHARACTER I PLAY, HE

IS AMERICAN, SO I HAD TO

LOSE THE AUSSIE DIALECT.

BUT I HAD A GREAT DIALECT

COACH.

WE WANTED HIM TO PLAY AN

AMERICAN TO BRING THIS

STORY TO AMERICAN SHORES.

HE IS A NORMAL MAN, AND HE

LOST HIS WIFE IN A TRAGIC

ACCIDENT AND SPIRALLED

INTO RESENTMENT AND

BITTERNESS, IN AND OUT OF

PRISON, AND HIS DAUGHTER

WAS TAKEN FROM HIM BY

PROTECTIVE SERVICES

BECAUSE HE COULDN'T LOOK

AFTER HER ANYMORE.

AS A RESULT, HE REALLY IS

LOOKING FOR ANYTHING TO

GET MONEY TO GET HIS LIFE

BACK ON TRACK.

AND A FRIEND COMES TO HIM

AND SAYS, HEY, I'VE GOT A

TRANSPORTATION JOB FOR

YOU.

YOU DRIVE A TRUCK STRAIGHT

THROUGH, FROM HERE TO

HERE, LONG DISTANCE, STAY

AWAKE, MAKE IT ALL OF THE

WAY.

AND AGAINST JAMES' BETTER

JUDGMENT, HE AGREES TO DO

IT.

MIDWAY THROUGH THE TRIP HE

FALLS ASLEEP AND RUNS OFF

OF THE ROAD.

HE KNOCKS OFF THE LOCK AND

REALIZES WHAT HE IS

CARRYING.

HE HAS TWO YOUNG LADIES

INSIDE, TWO SISTERS.

AND THEY THINK THEY'RE

GOING TO BE A MAID AND A

WAITRESS, BUT AS THEY GET

CLOSER TO THE LOCATION, HE

SEES THE STRENGTH IN THE

ELDER OF THE SISTERS, BUT

NO SOONER THAN THAT GETS

TO THE DROPOFF POINT AND

HE REALIZES HE

ACCIDENTALLY SOLD THEM

INTO SLAVERY.

SO THE REST OF THE FILM

BECOMES THIS RESCUE

MISSION FOR HIM.

AND THE ELDER SISTER --

HER STRENGTH IS RESCUING

HIM, IF YOU WILL, IN MORE

OF A MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL

WAY.

SO SHE IS A REAL HERO IN

THE PICTURE AS WELL.

Efrem: WE KNOW HUMAN

TRAFFICKING IS A BIG

PROBLEM IN OUR COUNTRY AND

AROUND THE WORLD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

SHEDDING LIGHT ON IT.

WE APPRECIATE YOUR TIME.

THANK YOU, MAN.

ABSOLUTELY.

Efrem: TIME NOW FOR

Efrem: TIME NOW FOR

YOUR THURSDAY THANKFUL.

TODAY I HOPE YOU WILL JOIN

ME IN THIS PRAYER OF

GRATITUDE.

LORD, THANK YOU FOR A

FRESH ROUND OF GRACE AND

MERCY EACH DAY.

THEY ARE REMINDERS THAT

OLD KEYS CAN'T OPEN NEW

DOORS.

KEEP THAT THOUGHT IN MIND

AS YOU GO THROUGHOUT YOUR

DAY.

GOD IS CALLING US ALL TO

INNOVATION AND TO BE

CREATIVE, IN TODAY'S WORLD

THAT IS NEEDED TO HAVE

INFLUENCE.

AND OUR FATHER WANTS US NO TO

NOT ONLY HAVE INFLUENCE,

BUT USE IT TO SHARE HIS

LOVE, GRACE, AND MERCY

WITH OTHERS.
