Efrem: AND TODAY ON

"NEWSWATCH," DONALD TRUMP

REACHES FOR

AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTERS,

AND HILLARY CLINTON REFUSE

TO ADDRESS THE WikiLEAKS

SCANDAL.

WE'VE GOT THE LATEST FROM

THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL.

PLUS, FLORIDA IS MAKE

OR BREAK STATE.

AND WE'LL HIT THE GROUND

TO SEE HOW THE BATTLE IS

BEING FOUGHT.

AND THE MEDIA CHEERED

WHEN HE LOST HIS JOB.

TIM TEBOW GETS REAL WITH

CBN NEWS ABOUT HOW HE GOT

CUT FROM THE NFL AND HOW

IT LEFT HIM SHAKEN.

> THANK YOU FOR JOINING

US FOR CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

> THE PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATES ARE BUSY WOOING

ROTORWOOINGVOTERS IN KEY BATTLEGROUND

STATES.

MICHELLE OBAMA JOINS

HILLARY CLINTON.

EACH CANDIDATE IS TRYING

TO APPEAL TO CANDIDATES

WHO DON'T TRADITIONALLY

VOTE FOR THEIR PARTY.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

Reporter: CAMPAIGNING

IN NORTH CAROLINA, TRUMP

REACHED OUT TO

AFRICAN-AMERICANS.

EVERY AFRICAN-AMERICAN

CITIZEN IN THIS COUNTRY IS

ENTITLED TO A GOVERNMENT

THAT PUTS THEIR JOBS,

WAGES, AND SECURITY FIRST.

Reporter: HE ASKED

THIM FOR THE HONOR OF

THEIR VOTES AND THE

PRIVILEGE TO REPRESENT

THEM AS THEIR PRESIDENT.

IN FLORIDA, HILLARY

CLINTON MADE AN APPEAL TO

ALL VOTERS, SAYING

AMERICANS ARE COMING

TOGETHER AT THE END OF

THIS ELECTION SEASON.

AND NOT JUST DEMOCRATS,

BUT REPUBLICANS AND

INDEPENDENTS, AND I WANT

TO THANK ALL OF THE

REPUBLICANS AND THE

INDEPENDENTS WHO ARE HERE

TODAY, WHO ARE PART OF

MAKING OUR COUNTRY BETTER

FOR EVERYONE.

Reporter: THE LATEST

RELEASE OF LEAKED E-MAILS

COULD MEAN MORE TROUBLE

FOR CLINTON.

THIS ONE FROM WikiLEAKS

SHOWS CLINTON AIDES

EXPRESSING CONCERN OVER

HER GROWING E-MAIL

PROBLEM.

CENTER FOR AMERICAN

PROGRESS WRITES, "WHY

DIDN'T THEY GET THIS STUFF

OUT, LIKE, 18 MONTHS AGO."

SHE GOES ON TO SAY, "I

GUESS I KNOW THE ANSWER.

THEY WANTED TO GET AWAY

WITH IT.

."

JOHN PODESTA REPLIES, "A

LOT HAS TO DO WITH HER

INSTINCTS.

ALMOST NO ONE KNOWS BETTER

THAN ME THAT HER INSTINCTS

CAN BE TERRIBLE."

CLINTON REFUSES COMMENT ON

THE WikiLEAKS

STATEMENTS.

HER INSTINCTS ARE

TERRIBLE.

NOW SHE WANTS TO START

WORLD WAR III IN SYRIA

AGAINST THE NUCLEAR-ARMED

RUSSIA.

Reporter: DESPITE

THAT, CLINTON STILL LEADS

IN MOST NATIONAL POLLS.

BUT WITH LESS THAN TWO

WEEKS TO GO BEFORE THE

ELECTION, DONALD TRUMP

APPEARS TO BE GAINING

GROUND, ESPECIALLY IN SOME

KEY STATES LIKE FLORIDA

AND NORTH CAROLINA.

Efrem: DONALD TRUMP

SAYS HE WILL STAND SIDE BY

SIDE WITH ISRAEL IF HE IS

ELECTED PRESIDENT.

HE MADE HIS COMMENTS IN A

NEW VIDEOTAPED ADDRESS.

HE SAID HIS ADMINISTRATION

WOULD STRENGTHEN THE

BRIDGES BETWEEN ALL

AMERICANS AND ISRAELIS.

HE ADDEDED, "TOGETHER WE

WILL STAND UP TO THE

ENEMIES, LIKE IRAN, BENT

ON DESTROYING ISRAEL AND

HER PEOPLE."

AS MANY AS 200,000 U.S.

VOTERS LIVE IN ISRAEL.

> HARRY REID SAYS HE HAS

LAID THE GROUND SO

DEMOCRATREPUBLICANS CAN BLOCK

HILLARY CLINTON'S NOMINEES

FOR THE SUPREME COURT.

WHEN REID WAS THE MAJORITY

LEADER OF THE SENATE, HE

GOT RID OF FILIBUSTERS

AGAINST THE PRESIDENT'S

NOMINEES.

THE ONLY EXCEPTION WAS THE

SUPREME COURT.

REID SAID HE BELIEVES

DEMOCRATS CAN CHANGE THE

RULES ON THAT, TOO, IF

NECESSARY.

SO A PRESIDENT HILLARY

CLINTON COULD GET HER

JUDGES ON TO THE SUPREME

COURT.

> SUDDENLY OBAMACARE HAS

BECOME A HOT TOPIC ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL AFTER THE

WHITE HOUSE CONFIRMED

PREMIUMS WILL GO UP ON AN

AVERAGE BY 25% NEXT YEAR.

NOW WE OBAMACARE

COLLAPSING, CRITICS WARN

THE DEMOCRATS REAL GOAL IS

FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO TAKE

OVER THE HEALTH CARE

SYSTEM.

THEY POINT TO HILLARY

CLINTON'S OWN HEALTH CARE

PLAN IN THE 1990s.

IT WAS OVER 1300 PAGES

LONG, INCLUDING A NATIONAL

CONTROL BOARD.

MEANWHILE BOTH TRUMP AND

CLINTON ARE CAMPAIGNING

HARD IN THE FIGHT FOR

FLORIDA.

NOW WE'RE GOING TO TAKE

YOU BEHIND THE SCENES TO

SEE WHAT BOTH COMPAIGNS

ARE UP TO IN THAT KEY

BATTLEGROUND STATE.

Reporter: THEY HONK

HORNS, KNOCK ON DOORS, AND

MAKE PHONE CALLS BY THE

THOUSANDS TO SPREAD A

FAMILIAR MESSAGE: MAKE

AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

THEY'VE BEEN VERY NICE

ABOUT IT.

WE'RE GETTING

TREMENDOUS RESPONSE,

TREMENDOUS FEEDBACK.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

VOLUNTEERING AND HOLDING

SIGNS.

I'M VERY ENCOURAGED.

I'VE ONLY HAD A COUPLE

OF PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE

THE TIME OR WHO HAVE HUNG

UP ON ME, BUT I'VE BEEN

VERY SURPRISED AT THE

RESPONSE.

VERY PLEASED.

Reporter: IN FLORIDA,

TRUMP HAD ROUGHLY 70,000

VOLUNTEERS.

IT IS THE THIRD LARGEST

STATE AND ONE OF THE MOST

DIVERSE, WITH RED AND BLUE

REGIONS, MAKING IT ONE BIG

PURPLE PRIZE.

I THINK PEOPLE HERE ARE

PASSIONATE ABOUT VOTING

FOR TRUMP AND VOTING FOUR

OUR COUNTRY.

Reporter: THESE

VOLUNTEERS SAY THEY

UNDERSTAND TRUMP IS DOWN

IN THE POLLS, BUT THEY SAY

THEY RUN INTO SO-CALLED

CLOSET VOTERS.

I HAD A GARDEN GUY, AND

I HAD A SIGN FOR TRUMP IN

MY YARD, AND I SAID,

YOU'RE NOT MAD AT ME?

AND HE SAID NO, I'M FOR

TRUMP.

Reporter: ONE GROUP

TRUMP NEEDS TO WIN HERE IS

EVANGELICALS.

WHAT WE'VE GOT TO SEE

IS PEOPLE THAT LOVE THE

CHURCH, LOVE ISRAEL,

AGAINST ABORTION -- THAT'S

WHAT IS GOING TO MAKE THE

DIFFERENCE.

Reporter: PASTOR

RODNEY HOWARD BROWN SAYS

HE IS NOT CONVINCED BY THE

STORY LINES THAT TRUMP IS

GOING DOWN IN FLAMES.

PEOPLE ARE SEEING

THROUGH IT.

THEY UNDERSTAND THERE IS

ANOTHER AGENDA GOING ON.

AND I THINK THEY MIGHT NOT

COME OUT PUBLICLY LIKE I'M

COMING OUT, BUT WHEN THEY

GO TO VOTE, THEY'RE GOING

TO VOTE.

AND I THINK WE'RE GOING TO

HAVE A LANDSLIDE COME

NOVEMBER 8.

Reporter: SO WHAT IS

THE VIBE WITH THE CLINTON

CAMPAIGN.

WE HEAD TO DAVID BRODY.

David: THE MOOD

AMONG CLINTON CAMPAIGNERS

IN FLORIDA IS STEADY AS

SHE GOES, CALM, COOL, AND

COLLECTED.

BUT THERE IS ANOTHER WORD

WHEN IT COMES TO

ORGANIZATION ON THE GROUND

AND THAT IS METHODICAL.

CLINTON HAS THE NUMBERS,

90,000 VOLUNTEERS.

MARILYN LAMONT RUNS A

PHONE BANK OUT OF HER HOME

AND IS READY FOR HISTORY

TO BE MADE.

SHE IS A WOMAN.

HOW FABULOUS IS THAT.

YOU KNOW?

IT'S ABOUT TIME.

IT'S ABOUT TIME.

SHE'S A SMART WOMAN.

AND I THINK SHE CARES

ABOUT ALL OF US.

David: THE THINKING

AMONG VOLUNTEERS IS TO

STAY POSITIVE.

THEY'VE HEARD THE CHATTER

THAT CLINTON IS A TYPICAL

POLITICIAN AND TRUMP IS

THE CHANGED CANDIDATE, BUT

THEY WON'T EVEN TALK ABOUT

LOSING.

I HAVEN'T EVEN THOUGHT

OF THAT BECAUSE SHE IS

GOING TO WIN.

NO, SHE IS GOING TO WIN.

David: CLOSE YOUR

EYES, DON'T EVEN THINK

ABOUT IT.

SHE'S GOING TO WIN.

David: VOTING IS

UNDER WAY, AND WITH

THOUSANDS OF BALLOTS UNDER

WAY, IT SEEMS TO BE AN

EVEN SPLIT BETWEEN

DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS.

IT IS FLORIDA, SO IT IS

NEVER A RUN-AWAY RACE FOR

ANYBODY.

David: TAMPA

POLITICAL REPORTER ADAM

SMITH WILL BE LOOKING FOR

ONE KEY SPECIFIC ON

NOVEMBER 8.

IF YOU START TO SEE

TAMPA BAY, HILLSBOROUGH

COUNTY, LOOK THERE.

IF TRUMP DOESN'T HAVE A

SIGNIFICANT LEAD IN PASCAL

COUNTY STARTING OUT, IT IS

GOING TO BE A BAD NIGHT.

BUT IT IS FLORIDA, SO YOU

CAN LOOK TO SOMEBODY TO

BOTCH IT UP.

David: MAYBE A LONG

NIGHT IN FLORIDA.

DEFINITELY A VERY LONG

PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.

DAVID BRODY IN TAMPA,

FLORIDA.

Efrem: NATO IS

ADVANCING ITS DEFENSES ON

RUSSIA, THE BIGGEST

BUILDUP SINCE THE COLD

WAR.

AND THE UNITED STATES

PROMISED TROOPS, TANKS,

AND ARTILLERY TO POLAND.

THE GOAL IS TO DETER

RUSSIA'S AGGRESSION

TOWARDS SYRIA.

THE AIRSTRIKES WILL

EXACERBATE THE

HUMANITARIAN SUFFERING IN

ALEPPO.

THEREFORE WE CALL ON

RUSSIA TO CONTRIBUTE TO A

POLITICAL SOLUTION, TO

IMPLEMENT THE CEASE-FIRE,

AND TO STOP THE BOMBING OF

ALEPPO.

Efrem: NATO PLANS TO

SET UP FOUR BATTLEGROUNDS

WITH 4,000 TROOPS FROM

EARLY NEXT YEAR.

ASH CARTER HAS ANNOUNCED

SERVICE MEMBERS SHOULD NOT

HAVE TO PAY THE ENLISTMENT

BONUSES.

THE DECISION COMES OVER

PUBLIC OUTRAGE OVER THE

PENTAGON TRYING TO REVOKE

THOSE AWARDS.

THEY DEMANDED CARTER

RELIEVE THE NATIONAL GUARD

OF THE OBLIGATION.

HE SAYS THIS PROCESS HAS

DRAGGED ON TOO LONG FOR

TOO MANY SERVICE MEMBERS.

TOO MANY CASES HAVE

LANGUISHED WITHOUT ACTION.

THAT IS UNFAIR TO SERVICE

MEMBERS AND TO TAXPAYERS.

CARTER HAS ORDERED THE

PENTAGON TO HELP THE

TROOPS TO GET RELIEF FROM

THEIR REPAYMENT

OBLIGATIONS.

> THE STATE OF GEORGIA

IS TELLING PASTOR ERIC

WALSH TO HAND OVER COPIES

OF HIS SERMON NOTES, AND

PASTOR WALSH IS RESPONDING

WITH A LAWSUIT.

THIS ISN'T THE FIRST TIME

HE WAS TOLD TO HAND OVER

HIS SERMONS.

THE GEORGIA HEALTH

DEPARTMENT FIRST ASKED.

SOON AFTER WATCHING HIS

SERMONS, THE DEPARTMENT

FIRED HIM.

AND NOW THEY'RE ASKING FOR

MORE SERMON NOTES.

CBN SPOKE WITH WALSH AND A

STATE ATTORNEY WHO SAID IT

WAS ILLEGAL.

IT WAS ILLEGAL FOR THEM

TO FIRE HIM BECAUSE OF THE

SERMONS.

AND IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL

FOR THEM TO NOW DEMAND ALL

OF HIS SERMON NOTES AND

TRANSCRIPTS.

Efrem: THEY HOPE TO

SETTLE THE CASE AND HOPE

OTHER PASTORS ARE NOT

TARGETED FOR THEIR FAITH

EITHER.

> A DECISION COMES AFTER

THE IOWA CIVIL RIGHTS

COMMISSION TRIED TO CENTER

WHAT PASTORS CAN AND

CANNOT SAY ABOUT SEXUALITY

AND FORCE CHURCHES TO

ADOPT A TRANSGENDER BATH

POLICY.

THE ATTORNEY, STEVE OBAN,

SAID THE COURT CUT OFF ITS

CONSTITUTIONAL POWER GRAB

BY CLARIFYING THAT THE LAW

DOES NOT APPLY TO

CHURCHES.

THE RULE COULD PROVE

PIVOTAL AS THE REST OF THE

COUNTRY TRIES TO MIX

L.B.G. POLICIES AND

CHURCHES.

> STILL TO COME, TIM

TEBOW SHARES HOW HE HAS

DEALT WITH THE HIGHS AND

LOWS OF HIS CAREERS, AND

ABOUT PURSUING DREAMS

Efrem: HE IS ONE OF

THE MOST FAMOUS ATHLETES

IN AMERICA, BUT THINGS

HAVE NOT ALWAYS BEEN EASY

FOR TIM TEBOW.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON TALKED

TO TEBOW ABOUT HOW HIS

FAITH HAS HELPED HIM GET

THROUGH THE STORMS OF

LIFE.

Reporter: THE WORLD

HAS NOTICED TIM TEBOW

SINCE HIS DAYS PLAYING

COLLEGE FOOTBALL.

BUT WHO WOULD HAVE

PREDICTED A HEISMAN TROPHY

WINNER WOULD FIND HIMSELF

IN SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA,

PLAYING MINOR LEAGUE BEEN.

I SABASEBALL.

I SAT DOWN WITH TIM TEBOW.

WHY BASEBALL?

AND HOW DID YOU FEEL

HITTING A HOMERUN YOUR

FIRST TIME UP AT BAT?

HITTING THE HOMERUN

FELT GOOD.

PLAYING BASEBALL, FOR ME,

WAS SOMETHING I ALMOST DID

OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL.

I DECIDED TO GO TO THE

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.

IT HAS BEEN SOMETHING THAT

HAS BEEN ON MY HEART

THROUGHOUT THE LAST COUPLE

OF YEARS, ESPECIALLY THE

LAST TWO.

AND I REALLY FELT LIKE WHY

NOT GO PURSUE IT IF IT IS

SOMETHING I'M PASSIONATE

ABOUT IT.

I FELT IN MY HEART, GO

AFTER IT.

Reporter: TIM MAY BE

PASSIONATE ABOUT BASEBALL

NOW, BUT IT WASN'T EXACTLY

HIS FIRST CAREER CHOICE.

THE DENVER BRONCOS DRAFTED

HIM RIGHT OUT OF COLLEGE.

AFTER BEING PROMOTED TO

STARTING QUARTERBACK, TIM

LED THE TEAM TO THEIR

FIRST PLAYOFF WIN IN SIX

YEARS.

DESPITE THAT PROMISING

FIRST SEASON, THE BRONCOS

TRADED HIM, AND IT WENT

DOWNHILL FROM THERE.

TIM WAS CUT OR RELEASED

FROM THREE MORE TEAMS IN

THE YEARS THAT FOLLOWED.

WHEN YOU'RE GOING

THROUGH THAT, WHAT DO YOU

HAVE TO HOLD ON TO?

WHAT IS YOUR FOUNDATION.

WHO ARE YOU?

AND WHO ARE YOU IN YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST?

Reporter: A LITTLE

MORE THAN A YEAR AGO, TIM

FELT GOD LEADING HIM TO

WRITE A BOOK FOR OTHERS

FACING HARD TIMES.

I WANTED TO WRITE A

BOOK FOR THOSE PEOPLE,

TELLING THEM THERE IS

STILL A GOD WHO CREATE

YOU, WHO LOVES YOU, AND

THAT YOU MATTER, AND

YOU'RE SIGNIFICANT.

SO PEOPLE GOING THROUGH

TOUGH TIMES, THEY HAVE

SOMETHING TO HOLD ON TO,

AND THEY DO IN THEIR

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST.

Reporter: IN HIS NEW

BOOK, "SHAKEN," TIM TALKS

ABOUT SOME OF THE TOUGH

GUYS, FROM BEING THE NEW

GEE, SURROUNDED BY A MEDIA

FRENZY, TO LIVING IN

ISOLATION WHILE PAPARAZZI

CAMPED OUT 12 FEET FROM

HIS FRONT DOOR, TO

REALIZING THIS FUTURE IN

FOOTBALL WAS LIKELY OVER.

AS HE WRITES, "I HAD NO

JOB, NO CAR, NO HOME."

ALL OF THE WHILE, SPORTS

ANNOUNCERS AND MEDIA

HEADLINES BLOWING UP WITH

PEOPLE HAPPY TO SEE HIM

FAILING.

NOT EVERYBODY CAN

RELATE TO THE HIGHS, BUT

ALMOST EVERYBODY CAN

RELATE TO THE LOWS.

BUT IN THOSE MOMENTS, HOW

DO WE HANDLE IT?

HOW DO WE BOUNCE BACK FROM

IT?

BECAUSE THERE IS GOING TO

BE TOUGH TIMES.

LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS EASY.

BUT WHEN YOU'RE ABLE TO

FOCUS ON GOD AND HIS PLANS

FOR YOUR LIFE, IT IS WORTH

IT.

AND THAT'S WHAT REALLY

MATTERS.

Reporter: THROUGH

RELENTLESS CRITICISM, TIM

HAS MANAGED TO KEEP CALM

AND REMAIN FOCUSED.

WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN

YOURSELF THAT YOU'RE DOING

THE RIGHT THING AND YOU'RE

GIVING IT YOUR ALL, YOU

HAVE TO BLOCK OUT THE

CRITICISM.

YOU HAVE TO BLOCK OUT THE

NAY-SAYERS.

A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE WILL

SAY, WELL, LET IT GO IN

ONE EAR AND OUT THE OTHER.

I JUST THINK, DON'T EVEN

GET IT GO IN ONE EAR.

DON'T LISTEN TO IT.

DON'T GO ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

DON'T READ IT.

DON'T WATCH THE TV.

FOR ME, IT WAS JUST STAY

FOCUSED ON WHAT YOUR GOAL

IS AND DON'T LET THE

NAY-SAYERS SWAY YOU FROM

YOUR GOAL.

Reporter: IN THE

BOOK, YOU REALLY BOLDLY

TELL PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS

AND CHALLENGE THEM TO TAKE

UP THE CROSS.

WHAT IS YOUR PRAYER FOR

THE PEOPLE WHO READ THIS

BOOK?

THAT THEY'RE

ENCOURAGED.

THAT THEY'RE ENCOURAGED TO

GO FIND A DEEPER

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

AND IT IS NOT JUST THE

GOING TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY

MORNING OR ON WEDNESDAY

NIGHT.

BUT IT IS AN ACTUAL DEEP

RELATIONSHIP, A

ONE-ON-ONE, INTIMATE

RELATIONSHIP WITH A GOD

THAT LOVES THEM SO MUCH

THAT HE SENT HIS SON TO

DIE FOR THEM.

Reporter: TIM OPENS A

LOT IN THE BOOK, BUT DON'T

EXPECT ANY DETAILS OF HIS

DATING LIFE.

BUT HE DID SHARE WITH ME

HIS PHILOSOPHY ON

RELATIONSHIPS.

I THINK PRAYER IS

IMPORTANT.

I THINK HAVING GODLY

WISDOM IS IMPORTANT FROM

PEOPLE YOU LOOK UP TO.

AND I THINK HAVING PEOPLE

AROUND YOU THAT ARE GOING

TO TELL YOU WHAT YOU

REALLY NEED TO HEAR, NOT

WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR.

AND THEY'RE ABLE TO BE THE

PEOPLE THAT CAN HELP GUIDE

YOU ON THAT PATH BECAUSE

SOMETIMES IN RELATIONSHIPS

YOU CAN'T ALWAYS SEE

CLEAR, BUT PEOPLE AROUND

YOU CAN.

ReporterI'VE SEEN SO MANY

THAT EVERYTHING AROUND

THEM IN SHAKEN, AND

THEY'RE THINKING, YOU

KNOW, I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF

I'M GOING TO BE HERE

TOMORROW.

AND I'VE SEEN SOME OF THEM

WITH SUCH AMAZING FAITH

THAT EVEN IN THE MIDST OF

ALL OF THAT, THEY STILL

HAD SOMETHING TO HOLD ON

TO, AND THAT WAS THEIR

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST.

Reporter: IN 2010,

TIM CREATED THE TIM TEBOW

FOUNDATION THAT HELPS

THOUSANDS OF ORPHANS,

SPECIAL-NEEDS CHILDREN,

AND TERMINALLY ILL

CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD.

GOD PLANTED THIS SEED WHEN

TIM WAS 15 AND MET A

FILIPINO BOY NAMED SHERWIN

WHO HAD BACKWARDS FEET.

IN 2015, THE FOUNDATION

OPENED A HOSPITAL IN THE

PHILIPPINES THAT PROVIDES

PATIENTS WITH

LIFE-CHANGING ORTHOPEDIC

SURGERIES.

NOW IN OUR HOSPITAL IN

THE PHILIPPINES, ALL OF

THE BOYS LIKE SHERWIN,

WITH THEIR FEET BACKWARDS,

WE GET TO PICK THEM UP AND

TAKE THEM TO THE HOSPITAL.

AND THEY GET TO WALK OUT

WITH PHYSICAL HEALING AND

EMOTIONAL HEALING AS WELL.

Reporter: THE

HOSPITAL IS ONE OF TIM'S

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

IT IS A PLACE THAT

PEOPLE GO IN WITH THEIR

HEAD DOWN, AND HOPEFULLY

THEY WALK OUT WITH THEIR

HEAD UP.

Reporter: AS AND FOR

THE CRITICS OF TIM'S

BASEBALL CAREER?

THEY WILL SAY, WHY?

THE CHANCE OF MAKING IT

ARE SO SLIM.

FOR ME, IT IS ABOUT

PURSUING YOUR PASSION AND

NOT BEING AFRAID OF

FAILURE.

I'M ALSO A BELIEVER THAT

PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT ALL

FEAR.

Reporter: IT IS NOT A

MAKE OR BREAK SITUATION

FOR TIM.

I LET'S JUST LOVE GOD AND

LOVE PEOPLE AND BRING

PEOPLE TOGETHER.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN WE

LOVE IN THE NAME OF JESUS?

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN WE

HELP IN THE NAME OF JESUS?

NOTHING ELSE IS THE GOAL.

THAT'S WHAT MATTERS, PLAIN

AND SIMPLE.

AND THAT'S MY PASSION.

AND I FEEL LIKE IT IS MY

PURPOSE, TOO.

Reporter: AND THAT'S

EXACTLY WHAT TIM IS DOING

ON AND OFF THE FIELD.

HE MAY NOT BE PLAYING IN

ARENAS OF 75,000 ANYMORE,

BUT THE SMALLER CROWDS

HAVE LED TO SOME DIVINE

OPPORTUNITIES.

TIM RECENTLY MADE

HEADLINES FOR PRAYING OVER

A FAN HAVING A SEIZURE

AFTER ONE OF HIS GAMES.

HE LATER LEARNED THE MAN

DECIDED TO FOLLOW JESUS

WHILE WATCHING THE GAME.

AFTER OVERHEARING OTHER

FANS TALKING ABOUT GOD.

WHEN YOU BELIEVE THAT

YOU SERVE A BIG GOD, AND

YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF HE

HAS A PLAN AND PURPOSE FOR

YOU, CAN WALK IN

CONFIDENCE, AND GO AFTER

WHAT HE PUTS ON YOUR

HEART.

AND YOU CAN DO IT WITH

BOLDNESS AND COURAGE, AND

YOU CAN GO AFTER IT

WITHOUT HAVING TO LISTEN

TO THE NAY-SAYERS.

Reporter: TIM MAY NOT

HAVE SEEN BASEBALL IN HIS

FUTURE, BUT GOD SURE DID.

HE CONTINUES TO TRUST

GOD'S PLAN FOR HIS LIFE

AND NOT LET HIS FAITH BE

SHAKEN.

REPORTEDLY FROM

SCOTTSDALE, ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: UP NEXT,

LENDING A HAND.

SEE HOW ONE WOMAN CAUGHT A

VISION TO HELP WOMEN WITH

CANCER, AND HOW HER IDEA

HAS GONE NATIONWIDE.

Efrem: MANY CANCER

PATIENTS EXPERIENCE

EXTREME EXHAUTION FROM

THEIR TREATMENT.

THE FATIGUE IS ESPECIALLY

DIFFICULT FOR WOMEN

RESPONSIBLE FOR RUNNING A

HOME.

BUT AS LORIE JOHNSON SHOWS

US, MANY OF THEM ARE

GETTING HELP WITH THE

HOUSEWORK FOR FREE.

Lorie: DESPITE HER

OVARIAN CANCER, STACEY

RESOLVED TO BE STRONG FOR

HER CHILDREN.

WHATEVER ENERGY I HAD,

I NEEDED TO USE TO KEEP

THEIR LIVES NORMAL.

AND CONSISTENT WITH THE

ROUTINES THEY WERE

NORMALLY USED TO.

AND, OF COURSE, WHEN THEY

WENT TO SCHOOL, BACK IN

BED I WENT AND JUST DIDN'T

MOVE UNTIL IT WAS TIME

WHEN THEY GOT HOME.

Lorie: CANCER

TREATMENT, ESPECIALLY

CHEMOTHERAPY, DRAINS YOUR

ENERGY SOMETIMES FOR WEEKS

ON END.

MANY WOMEN DON'T EVEN HAVE

THE STRENGTH TO CLEAN

THEIR HOMES.

NOW THEY'RE GETTING HELP.

FREE MAID SERVICE ONCE A

MONTH FOR FOUR MONTHS.

AN IDEA THAT GREW FROM ONE

DALLAS CLEANING BUSINESS.

I DID IT AS A COMPANY

POLICY FOR MANY, MANY

YEARS.

FAST FORWARD YEARS LATER,

I TURNED THAT COMPANY

POLICY INTO A NON-PROFIT.

AND NOW WE HAVE MAID

SERVICES ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY THAT ARE DONATING

FREE HOUSE CLEANING TO

WOMEN WITH CANCER.

Lorie: OVER A

THOUSAND CLEANING SERVICES

FROM ALL 50 STATES ARE ON

BOARD.

YOU KNOW, A LOT OF

TIMES PATIENTS DON'T WANT

TO HAVE FAMILY CLEAN THEIR

HOME.

THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE

THEIR BEST FRIEND COME

CLEAN THEIR HOME.

AND HAVING A STRANGER

SOMETIMES DO THAT IS A

LITTLE BIT EASIER.

Lorie: SO FAR 15,000

WOMEN HAVE RECEIVED THIS

GIFT.

MY WHOLE WORLD CHANGED

JUST KNOWING I COULD COUNT

ON THEM.

Lorie: CANCER

PATIENTS OR CLEANING

SERVICES WHO WOULD LIKE TO

GET INVOLVED CAN FIND A

LINK AT cbnnews.com.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.
