THIS WEEK ON "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS."

THE IRAQI TROOPS BATTLE TO

GET RID OF ISIS ONCE AND

FOR ALL.

BUT THAT MEANS THOUSANDS

OF FAMILIES ARE NOW

FLEEING FOR THEIR LIVES.

> PLUS, INTERNATIONAL

STUDENTS COME TO THE U.S.

EVERY DAY IN SEARCH OF A

BETTER EDUCATION.

SEE HOW THEY'RE FINDING

CHRIST I IN AN UNEXPECTED

PLACE.

AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD ARE IN

CHAINS.

LEARN ABOUT THE

HEARTBREAKING REALITY OF

HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND HOW

CHURCHES ARE STEPPING IN

TO STOP IT.

WELCOME TO "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS."

I'M JESSICA CHOCOW.

IRAQ'S ARMED FORCES ARE

FIGHTING TO DRIVE ISIS OUT

OF MOSUL, BUT THE TERROR

GROUP IS DESPERATE TO KEEP

ITS HOLD ON THE CITY.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

THOUSANDS ARE FLEEING

MOSUL AND SEEKING REFUGE

IN REFUGEE CAMPS.

Chris: ALREADY

THOUSANDS OF REFUGEES HAVE

TRIED TO ESCAPE THE ISIS

RAMPAGE ACROSS IRAQ.

IT IS A TRICKLE THAT COULD

BECOME A CLUB.

BEHIND ME IS ONE OF THE

REFUGEE CAMPS IN NORTHERN

IRAQ.

THERE ARE ANOTHER 30,000

IN THE VICINITY.

BUT EXPERTS WARN WHEN THE

CITY OF MOSUL FALLS, IT

COULD REPRESENT THE

GREATEST REFUGEE CRISIS IN

DECADES.

THERE IS A LOT OF

POTENTIAL FOR THIS TO BE

CATASTROPHIC ON THE HUMAN

SCALE.

Chris: MATTHEW LEADS

"SAMARITAN'S PURSE" IN

IRAQ.

AND HE SAYS DISPLACED

PERSONS COMING OUT OF

MOSUL TODAY ARE DIFFERENT

FROM THE REFUGEES WHO FLED

ISIS IN THE SUMMER OF

2014.

THE I.D.P.s THAT ARE

GOING TO BE COMING OUT OF

MOSUL HAVE LIVED TWO PLUS

YEARS UNDER THE CONTROL OF

ISIS.

SO THEY'VE SEEN WHAT I

BELIEVE IS THE WORST

TERRORISM THE WORLD HAS

EVER SEEN.

AND THEY HAVE BEEN

INFLUENCED BY ISIS.

Chris: HE SAYS THAT

MAKES THIS HUMANITARIAN

EFFORT FAR MORE DANGEROUS.

WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT A

MILMILLION PLUS PEOPLE BEING

DISPLACED ALL OVER THE

DESERT HERE IN IRAQ, IT

DOESN'T TAKE LONG FOR YOU

TO UNDERSTAND THAT THERE

WILL BE ISIS CELLS IN

THOSE GROUPS OF PEOPLE, IN

THOSE GROUPINGS, WHICH

BRINGS IN A WHOLE NEW SET

OF CHALLENGES.

Chris: DESPITE THE

DANGER, HE SAYS THE CRISIS

AS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE

CHURCH, ESPECIALLY WITH

THE YOUNG PEOPLE.

THESE YOUTH HAVE BEEN

WATCHING ISIS FOR THE LAST

TWO YEARS.

AND THEY KNOW WHAT THEY'RE

BEING TAUGHT BY ISIS.

AND THEY'RE ABOUT TO BE

DISPLACED INTO THE REGION.

AND THEY'RE GOING TO BE

WATCHING TO SEE WHO

RECEIVES THEM AND WHO

SERVES THEM.

SO WE HAVE TAKEN IT UPON

OURSELVES AS AN

ORGANIZATION, AND WE

BELIEVE THAT JESUS

COMMANDS US TO GIVE A

GLASS OF COLD WATER TO OUR

ENEMY AND TO SERVE.

AND SO WE WANT TO BE

THERE.

WE WANT TO BE THE HANDS

AND FEET OF JESUS CHRIST

WHEN THESE CHILDREN, AND

WHEN THESE ADULTS, WHETHER

IT IS CELLS OF ISIS OR NOT

NOT, NEED US.

Chris: HE SAYS WHAT

IS NEEDED MOST NOW IS

PRAYER.

THE SITUATION IS

INCREDIBLY COMPLEX.

AND I'D ASK THE CHURCH

BACK IN AMERICA, IN THE

WEST, FIRST AND FOREMOST

TO PRAY.

WE DON'T HAVE ALL OF THE

ANSWERS.

WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO

REMAIN COMPLETELY SECURE.

THIS IS A DANGEROUS

CALLING.

BUT I WOULD ASK FOR

PRAYERS FOR THE PEOPLE

THEMSELVES THAT ARE GOING

TO BE DISPLACED, THAT GOD

WOULD SOFTEN THEIR HEARTS

NOW, THAT THEY WOULD BE

RECEPTIVE TO THE MESSAGE

THAT SO MANY OF JESUS'

FOLLOWERS ARE GOING TO BE

OUT IN THE DESERT HERE IN

IRAQ TRYING TO PROVIDE.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

NORTHERN IRAQ.

AS THE IRAQI ARMY

DRIVES ISIS OUT OF

VILLAGES NEAR MOSUL, SOME

CHRISTIANS ARE RETURNING

TO THEIR HOMES.

MOST RECENTLY THEY CAME

BACK TO A LIBERATED

VILLAGE IN KARAMALUS.

THE CHURCH BELL AT THIS

CHURCH TOLLED FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN TWO YEARS

DURING A TEARFUL SUNDAY

SERVICE.

ISIS DAMAGED THE CHURCH

BADLY, LIGHTING PRAYER

BENCHES ON FIRE, AND

SHATTERING GLASS

THROUGHOUT.

EVEN AS THE CONGREGATION

STRUGGLED TO FIND HOPE FOR

THE FUTURE, THEY SANG A

HYMN ABOUT THE LIGHT OF

GOD.

THEIR PRIEST REMINDED

THEM, QUOTE,"GOD IS ALWAYS

GIVING US LIGHT TO SPREAD,

PEACE AND LOVE AND

REBUILDING."

> TURNING TO THE ASIAN

NATION OF INDONESIA, WHERE

FOUR CHILDREN WERE INJURED

WHEN THEIR CHURCH WAS

FIREBOMBED.

POLICE SAY THE CHILDREN,

AGED TWO TO FOUR YEARS

OLD, SUFFERED BURN

INJURIES.

A MAN RIDING ON A

MOTORBIKE THREW THE BOMB

AT THE CHURCH.

HE WAS LATER CAPTURED.

TV IMAGES SHOWED HIM

WEARING A SHIRT WITH THE

WORDS "JIHAD, WAY OF

LIFE."

> IN 2014, BUSUKI

FERNAMA WAS APPOINTED THE

FIRST CHRISTIAN GOVERNESS.

THEY SAY THE QURAN

PROHIBITS THEM FROM BEING

GOVERNED BY A NON-MUSLIM.

SHE RECENTLY SAID MILITANT

MUSLIMS HAVE

MISINTERPRETED THE

COMMENTS.

CBN NEWS ASIA

CORRESPONDENT LUCILLE

TALUSAN EXPLAINS THE

POLITICS BEHIND THE CASE.

Reporter: MR. PERNAMA

USED TO BE A SUNDAY SCHOOL

ATTACH.

SO HE IS A VERY COMMITTED

CHRISTIAN.

HE HAS A STANCE AGAINST

CORRUPTION.

HE IS POPULAR FOR

CONSIDERING THE STANCE

AGAINST CORRUPTION, AND

ALSO HAVING THESE

REFORMIST POLICIES.

SO HE IS VERY POPULAR.

HE COULD EVEN WIN THE

GUBERNATORIAL ELECTION IN

FEBRUARY.

HE CAN STILL RUN FOR

GOVERNOR, BUT HE COULD

FACE UP TO FIVE YEARS IN

PRISON IF CONVICTED FOR

BLASPHEMY.

cbnnews.com.

> FRANKLIN GRAHAM HELD A

THREE-DAY CONFERENCE IN

MERMIRAMAR.

HE TOLD CBN THAT A LOT HAS

CHANGED SINCE HE FIRST

VISITED THE COUNTRY IN THE

1980s.

TO COME TODAY AND TO

SEE THE COUNTRY CHANGING,

AND TO SEE PEOPLE HAVING

FREEDOMS, LIKE THEY DID

NOT HAVE 20, 30 YEARS AGO,

I REJOICE.

AND SO AS I COME THIS

WEEK, I'M COMING JUST TO

PREACH A VERY SIMPLE

GOSPEL, THAT GOD LOVES US.

HE LOVES ALL OF THE PEOPLE

OF MYANMAR.

440 CHURCHES TOOK PART

IN THE MYANMAR VEEPT.

EVENT.

> UP NEXT, THESE

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

COME TO THE U.S. SEARCHING

FOR A GOOD EDUCATION.

HEAR HOW THEIR LIVES ARE

BEING TRANSFORMED BY THE

GOSPEL ALONG THE WAY.

STUDENTS FROM ACROSS

THE WORLD COME TO OUR

COUNTRIES TO STUDY IN OUR

COLLEGES.

THEY HELP THEM OVERCOME

LONELINESS AND CULTURE

SHOCK BY OFFERING THEM

FRIENDSHIP IN THE COMFORT

OF CHRIST.

MAY LEE EXPLAINS.

Reporter: LAUGHTER,

GAMES, FOOD AND FUN, FOR

ESTHER AND MARK, FRIDAY

NIGHTS ARE MORE THAN JUST

EATING A FUN DINNER AT

CHURCH.

THEY COME FOR A SPECIAL

PURPOSE.

THOUSANDS OF CHINESE

STUDENTS COME TO THE

UNITED STATES FOR ADVANCED

EDUCATION.

FRESH OFF THE BOAT, MANY

ARE PROFESSED ATHEISTS,

BUT SOME ARE FINDING

CHRIST THROUGH THE

CAMPUSES.

IN 2015, MORE THAN 304,000

CHINESE WERE ENROLLED IN

AMERICAN COLLEGES AND

UNIVERSITIES.

12% OF THEM ACCEPTED

CHRIST.

REGENT UNIVERSITY STUDENT

LEE SHUNG STRUGGLED WITH

CULTURE SHOCK AFTER

ARRIVING IN VIRGINIA

BEACH.

Through Translator:

LONELINESS WAS TOTALLY

UNAVOIDABLE FOR ME.

I JUST FELT EMPTY.

THEN I WAS INVITED TO A

CHURCH DINNER ON FRIDAY

NIGHT.

IT FELT STRANGE THAT THE

PEOPLE THERE SHARED AN

AMAZING DINNER WITH ME AND

STARTED TO TALK TO ME AS

FRIENDS AND BUDDIES.

Reporter: CBN NEWS

JOINED SOME MEMBERS OF THE

AGAPE CHURCH AS THEY

HANDED OUT BROCHURES.

THEIR MAIN FOCUS WAS TO

INVITE FOREIGN STUDENTS TO

CHURCH.

SOME PEOPLE PASSED BY AT

THE PARK, AND WERE DEEPLY

TOUCHED BY THEIR

PASSIONATE PERFORMANCE FOR

JESUS.

*

Reporter: SINGER JOSE

PATTA WELCOMES THE

PARTNERSHIP.

WE HAVE BEEN PRAYING

FOR YEARS TO HAVE A

CHINESE CHURCH ON OUR

SIDE, CAPABLE OF PREACHING

THE GOSPEL TO THEM.

THIS YEAR WE HAVE THE

COMMUNITY CHURCH THAT IS

ACTUALLY HELPING US TO

SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH

TOURISTS THAT ARE COMING

FROM CHINA, AND THEY SPEAK

ONLY CHINESE, STRAIGHT

CHINESE.

Reporter: CHURCH

LEADERS BELIEVE MUSIC IS

ONE WAY TO BRIDGE THE GAP

WITH THE FOREIGN COLLEGE

STUDENTS.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

MANY STUDENTS TOLD ME THEY

HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THIS

TYPE OF MUSIC.

ALTHOUGH THEY DON'T KNOW

JESUS, THEY CAN SIT THERE

QUIETLY TO LISTEN AND FEEL

THE MUSIC.

THEY LOVE THOSE SONGS.

Reporter: OVER TIME,

THE CHRISTIANS ESTABLISHED

RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE

STUDENTS.

AS A RESULT, THEY BECAME

MORE WILLING TO DISCUSS

FAITH AND THE BIBLE.

THE STUDENTS' LIVES

CHANGED BECAUSE CHURCH

MEMBERS MINISTERED TO THEM

AND HELPED THEM UNDERSTAND

THE CHRISTIAN FAITH.

Through Translator:

I'VE NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT

THE WORD "SIN."

THE MORE I READ ABOUT IT,

THE MORE QUESTIONS I HAD.

I EVEN COMPARED

CHRISTIANITY WITH OTHER

RELIGIONS.

WHEN I GOT REALLY

CONFUSED, I TRIED TO PRAY,

LIKE OTHER CHRISTIANS DO.

I FELT GOD WAS NEXT TO ME,

AND CHURCH LEADERS BEGAN

TO EXPLAIN MORE TO ME.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

THE PURPOSE OF THIS

MINISTRY IS TO ALLOW

CHINESE MILLENNIALS TO

KNOW JESUS.

THEY ARE LIVING IN THE

U.S., AND THEY WILL FACE

TRIALS AND UNCERTAINTIES.

OUR CHURCH PROVIDES HELP

TO THEM.

AND WE WANT THEM TO FEEL

THE SAME LOVE THAT JESUS

GAVE US ALL.

AND SHARE THEIR LOVE WITH

OTHERS ONCE THEY RETURN

HOME.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

AS A CHURCH, WE WANT TO

USE OUR RESOURCES TO

CHANGE THE CHINESE YOUNG

PEOPLE RIGHT HERE IN THE

U.S.

GOD GAVE US A MISSION TO

MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL

PEOPLE, ALL RACES, AND ALL

NATIONS.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: MUNG FE

LEE, CBN NEWS, MANASSUS,

VIRGINIA.

DANIEL ORTEGA HAS BEEN

RE-ELECTED FOR HIS THIRD

TERM AS PRESIDENT OF

NICARAGUA.

JAVIER BALANOS HAS MORE.

Reporter: IT IS NOT

SURPRISING THAT DANIEL

ORTEGA HAS BEEN RE-ELECTED

FOR A THIRD CONSECUTIVE

TERM AS PRESIDENT OF

NICARAGUA.

MOST PEOPLE HERE ARE

RESIGNED TO LETTING HIM

GOVERN THE COUNTRY AS HE

PLEASES.

AT THE END OF HIS NEW

TERM, THIS SOCIALIST WILL

HAVE HAD A TOTAL OF 15

CONSECUTIVE YEARS IN

POWER.

HE PREVIOUSLY GOVERNED

NICARAGUA FOR ANOTHER 10

YEARS DURING THE '80s,

WHEN HE LED THE

REVOLUTION.

AT THAT TIME, H NICARAGUA

WAS INVOLVED IN A CIVIL

WAR AGAINST THE CONT TRAS,RAS,

WHO WERE FUNDED BY THE

UNITED STATES.

TODAY, A NEW GENERATION

DIDN'T LIVE THROUGH THE

HORRORS OF THAT WAR.

THE EVANGELICAL CHURCH OF

NICARAGUA HAS ALSO

EXPERIENCED SIGNIFICANT

GROWTH.

TRADITIONALLY A CATHOLIC

COUNTRY, THE NATION'S

CHRISTIAN LEADERS CLAIM

THAT HALF OF THE

POPULATION IS NOW

EVANGELICAL.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

THE CHURCH HAS GROWN MORE

THAN ANY OTHER HERE.

RIGHT NOW WE ARE ALMOST

60% OF THE SIX MILLION

POPULATION, AND WE ARE A

FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.

WE ARE NO LONGER A LITTLE,

INSIGNIFICANT CHURCH,

HIDDEN FROM SOCIETY.

NOW WE ARE A PART OF ALL

LEVELS OF SOCIETY.

Reporter: AND THEIR

INFLUENCE IN GOVERNMENT --

EVEN THE FIRST LADY

REFERS TO GOD IN HER

SPEECHES.

SHE IS THE NATION'S

OFFICIAL SPOKESPERSON AND

NOW IS THE VICE

PRESIDENT-ELECT.

BUT ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER

THAN WORDS.

CONCERNED ABOUT THE

STRENGTH OF THE

EVANGELICAL POPULATION,

AUTHORITIES ARE

RESTRICTING THEIR

ACTIVITIES.

Reporter: THIS IS THE

CENTER OF MANAGWA, THE

PLACE WHERE THE

EVANGELICAL CHURCH WANTED

TO PRAY TO THE LORD FOR

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION,

BUT THE NICARAGUAN

GOVERNMENT DENIED

PERMISSION FOR PRAYING

HERE.

ACCORDING TO THE PRESIDENT

OF THE NICARAGUAN

EVANGELICAL ALLIANCE,

CHRISTIANS WANTED TO

GATHER IN THE PLAZA

PEACEFULLY TO PRAY FOR THE

ELECTIONS.

BUT THE GOVERNMENT FEARED

THE MEETINGS WOULD TURN

INTO POLITICAL RALLIES,

SUPPORTING THE OPPOSITION

CANDIDATE.

THEY THOUGHT WE WERE

GOING TO TAKE THE REVEREND

OUT OF THERE AND GIVE THE

EVENT A POLITICAL TWIST.

BUT THAT WASN'T OUR

INTENT.

Reporter: WEEKS

BEFORE, THE GOVERNMENT

RESTRICTED FOREIGN

ENTITIES FROM ENDING THE

COUNTRY.

NICARAGUA...

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

NICARAGUA SAVED THIS

COUNTRY AND CENTRAL

AMERICA.

THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO

MAINTAIN THAT SECURITY IN

THIS COUNTRY.

Reporter: FORMER

ASSEMBLIES OF GOD,

SALMINO, RAN AS AN

OPPOSITION CANDIDATE IN

THE ELECTION.

HE TOLD CBN NEWS HE WILL

DENOUNCE ANY ILLEGAL

ACTIVITY IN ORTEGA'S

GOVERNMENT.

I AM NOT AFRAID.

I HAVEN'T BEEN AFRAID.

AND I WILL NOT BE AFRAID.

Reporter: NICARAGUA'S

CHRISTIAN LEADERS ARE

ASKING CHRISTIANS AROUND

THE WORLD TO PRAY FOR

THEIR NATION.

LET'S UNITE AND SUPPORT

EACH OTHER.

Reporter: CBN NEWS,

MANAWA, NICARAGUA.

COMING UP, HUMAN

TRAFFICKING IS ONE OF THE

DARKEST PRACTICES OF OUR

TIME.

SEE HOW THE CHURCH IS ON

THE FRONT LINES OF THE

FIGHT TO END MODERN DAY

SLAVERY.

WELCOME BACK TO

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS."

MORE THAN 40 MILLION

PEOPLE WORLDWIDE ARE

VICTIMS OF SOME TYPE OF

SLAVERY.

AN ESTIMATED 12 MILLION OF

THEM ARE CHILDREN.

MANY AMERICANS SEE THIS AS

AN INTERNATIONAL ISSUE,

BUT SEX TRAFFICKING IS A

MAJOR AND HEARTBREAKING

PROBLEM RIGHT HERE IN THE

U.S.

AND THAT'S LEADING

CHURCHES TO FIGHT BACK IN

SOME VERY UNIQUE WAYS.

WHEN I FIRST HEARD

ABOUT THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF

HUMAN TRAFFICKING, THAT A

CHILD LITERALLY WOULD BE

SOLD FOR SEX, MY HEART

BROKE.

Charlene: THE HARSH

REALITY OF IT HAPPENING IN

HIS CITY FORCED THIS

PASTOR TO TAKE ACTION.

THE SCRIPTURE SAYS WE

MUST RESCUE THE PERISHING,

AND HOLD BACK THOSE GOING

TO SLAUGHTER, AND SPEAK UP

FOR THOSE DEFENSELESS, THE

WIDOW AND THE ORPHAN.

Charlene: PASTOR

PHILLIP O'REILLY'S ANSWER

TO THAT ACTUAL IS CALLED

"RUN TO STOP IT."

THE ANNUAL EVENT

ENCOURAGES HIS CHURCH TO

USE THE CITY'S 5K AND HALF

MARAON AS A WAY TO

SPREAD AWARENESS AND RAISE

MONEY TO FIGHT HUMAN

TRAFFICKING.

WE'VE GOT PEOPLE WHO

WERE NEVER RUNNERS BEFORE

THAT ARE NOW RUNNING.

WE HAVE ONE GUY THAT

DIDN'T RUN, AND NOW HE IS

DOING, LIKE, 30-MILE RUNS

AND LONGER.

IT IS PRETTY AMAZING.

Charlene: ALSO

IMPRESSIVE, THE AMOUNT OF

MONEY RAISED FOR THE

CAUSE.

WE WERE ABLE TO GIVE

THEM A CHECK FOR $100,000.

IT WAS AWESOME.

Charlene: THE ROCK OF

K.C., PARTNERED WITH

EXODUS CRY BECAUSE OF ITS

COMMITMENT TO HELP AB ABOLISH

SLAVERY THROUGH HOLISTIC

RESTORATION.

A RECENT STATISTIC CAME

OUT AND SAID THERE IS MORE

LIKE 46 MILLION.

THE NUMBERS -- I MEAN, WHO

CAN KNOW?

THERE IS A CULTURAL

PHENOMENON.

Charlene: BEN NI BENJAMIN

NOLO SAYS TRAFFICKERS USE

MAJOR HUBBS FOR THEIR

OPERATIONS.

THERE WAS A TRAFFIC

RING RIGHT HERE IN OUR

BACKYARD.

AND 16 MASSAGE PARLORS

WERE SHUT DOWN BECAUSE

THEY WERE BRINGING GIRLS

THROUGH.

IT IS HAPPENING RIGHT HERE

IN THE MIDST OF THE BIBLE

BELT, AMONGST THE MEGA

CHURCHES AND EVERYTHING

ELSE.

Charlene: THAT IS WHY

HIS GROUP INFILTRATES

THOSE PLACES TO FIND

VICTIMS HELD IN BONDAGE.

ALL THE MORE REASON WHY

THE ROCK OF K.C. AND ITS

MEMBERS RUN TO STOP IT.

WHEN I RUN, I THINK

ABOUT WHAT I'M RUNNING

FOR.

SO, YEAH, IT GIVES YOU

MOTIVATION.

FIRST OF ALL, WE WANT

TO STOP THE SLAVERY

ITSELF.

SECONDLY, WE WANT TO

RESTORE THOSE WHO HAVE

BEEN AFFECTED BY THE

SLAVERY.

SO IT'S NOT JUST, HEY,

LET'S STOP IT AND, OKAY,

YOU'RE FREE.

BUT IT IS STOP IT, AND,

HEY, LET'S WORK THE INSIDE

ISSUES OUT.

LET'S RESTORE YOU TO YOUR

GOD-GIVEN GIFTS IN LIFE.

IT IS GRUELING.

I'VE DONE THE HALF

MARATHON, SO 13 MILES, AND

THE TRAINING FOR IT JUST

IS TERRIBLE.

WHEN YOU'RE RUNNING DOWN

THE ROAD AND YOU WANT TO

STOP, BUT THAT'S WHAT I

THINK ABOUT -- I'M NOT

GOING THROUGH HALF THE

AMOUNT OF PAIN THAT THESE

GIRLS ARE PROBABLY GOING

THROUGH RIGHT NOW.

Charlene: WHILE NOLO

IS GRATEFUL FOR SUPPORT,

HE SAYS MORE THAN ONE

CONGREGATION NEEDS TO JOIN

THE FIGHT.

I THANK GOD FOR ROCK OF

K.C. CHURCH BECAUSE

THEY'VE BEEN AWAKENED TO

THIS.

THEY SEE IT, AND THEY'RE,

LIKE, WE CAN'T JUST DO

NOTHING ABOUT THIS.

AND THEY'VE REALLY PUT ALL

OF THEIR CHIPS IN, SO TO

SPEAK, TO REALLY COMMIT

THEMSELVES TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THIS ISSUE.

AND THAT'S SO HUGE.

WE NEED THE LOCAL CHURCH

TO STEP UP LIKE THAT, FOR

US TO BE ABLE TO EA ERADICATE

THIS IN JUSTICE.

WE'VE GOT TO SAY,

ENOUGH.

NOT IN OUR CITY, NOT IN

OUR NATION, AND NOT IN OUR

WORLD.

WE'VE GOT TO STAND UP.

YOU CAN SPREAD THE GOOD

NEWS OF HOW GOD IS AT WORK

IN THE WORLD.

SIMPLY GO TO THIS STORY

AT cbnnews.com AND SHARE

IT WITH YOUR FAMILY AND

FRIENDS ON Facebook.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

AMERICANS ARE

CELEBRATING THE BIBLE THIS

WEEK, AND AS PAUL STRAND

REPORTS FROM CAPITOL HILL,

EVEN CONGRESS GOT IN ON

THE ACT OF DIVING INTO

SCRIPTURES DURING NATIONAL

BIBLE WEEK.

MR. SPEAKER, THIS

BIBLE, IT SPEAKS TO THE

GREATNESS OF GOD.

Reporter: CONGRESS

NOTED THIS IS THE 75th

YEAR THAT AMERICA AS

MARKED NATIONAL BIBLE

WEEK.

HIS DELIGHT IS IN THE

LAW OF THE LORD.

AND IN HIS LAW, HE

MEDITATES DAY AND NIGHT.

Reporter: COLORADO

CONGRESSMAN DU DOUG LAM

BORN...

HE PRESIDENT LINCOLN

SAID, IN REGARD TO THIS

GREAT BOOK, I HAVE TO SAY

IT IS THE BEST GIFT GOD

HAS GIVEN TO MAN.

Reporter: AMERICANS

NEED TO BE REMINDED THAT

THE BIBLE IS THERE AND IT

MATTERS.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO STOP

AND REMEMBER, THIS IS A

GIFT.

AND PEOPLE IN THE SOVIET

UNION, THAT I WORKED WITH,

DIDN'T HAVE BIBLES.

THEY LIVED -- THEY HAD TO

READ IN THE BARNS OR MEET

IN SECRET GATHERINGS AND

THEY WOULD SHARE THE WORD

THAT WAY.

IT OFFERS US HOPE WHEN

CIRCUMSTANCES ARE DIRE AND

IS A SOURCE OF STRENGTH.

Reporter: NATIONAL

BIBLE WEEK ISN'T JUST SOME

CEREMONY OR EVENT.

IT IS A SOLID NATIONWIDE

REMINDER THAT THE BIBLE IS

IMPORTANT, LIFE-CHANGING.

AS THE GOSPEL OF JOHN

TELLS US: "THE WORD IS

GOD."

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

CAPITOL HILL.

FINALLY THIS WEEK,

CHRIS BORROWS, THE LONG

TIME MUSIC DIRECTOR FOR

THE BILLY GRAHAM

EVANGELISTIC ASSOCIATION

HAS DIED AT AGE 93.

FOR DECADES, HE REGULARLY %

LED WORSHIP AT BILLY

GRAHAM'S CRUSADES AROUND

THE WORLD.

IN HIS LATER YEARS, HE

STAYED INVOLVED WITH THE

MINISTRY, HOSTING "THE

HOUR OF DECISION" RADIO

PROGRAM FOR NEARLY 60

YEARS.

YET BA BORROWS SAID HE NEVER

FORGOT THE THRILLS HE GOT

WHEN SINGING THE GREAT

CLASSIC HYMNS.

I STILL GET THRILLS IN

MY HEART AND MY BODY AS I

ASK PEOPLE TO SING, "O

HAIL THE POWER OF JESUS'

NAME" OR IN SINGING "OUR

GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD."

SOME OF THE NEW

CONTEMPORARY SONGS ARE

WONDERFUL, BUT THE GREAT

HYMNS OF FAITH ARE THE

ONES WE STILL ENJOY AND

USE THE MOST IN OUR

CRUSADE.

WELL, THANKS FOR

JOINING US THIS WEEK.

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, GOOD-BYE

AND GOD BLESS YOU.
