"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD

TRUMP SAYS IT IS, QUOTE,

"FAKE NEWS, A DISGRACE,

AND PHONY STUFF THAT

DIDN'T HAPPEN."

THAT WAS HIS RESPONSE TO

NEWS REPORTS THAT RUSSIA

HAD OBTAINED COMPRISING

INFORMATION ABOUT HIM.

IN A FIERY NEWS

CONFERENCE, HE BLASTEDED

THE REPORT AS A TREMENDOUS

BLOT ON THE RECORD OF THE

INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY.

AS JENNIFER WISHON

REPORTS, THE WHITE HOUSE

NEWS CORPS IS IN FOR A

FIGHT.

Jennifer: FOR

PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD

TRUMP, HIS RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE MEDIA IS

COMPLICATED, AT BEST.

IT IS VERY FAMILIAR

TERRITORY, NEWS

CONFERENCES, BECAUSE WE

USED TO GIVE THEM ON AN

ALMOST DAILY BASIS.

I THINK WE MAYBE WON THE

NOMINATION BECAUSE OF NEWS

CONFERENCES.

Reporter: HE AWOKE TO

LEARN TO A REPORT THAT WAS

FULL OF ERRORS.

TEAM TRUMP PILED ON.

THE FACT THAT BUZZ FEED

AND CNN MADE THE DECISION

TO RUN WITH THIS

UNSUBSTANTIATED CLAIM SKA

SAD AND PATHETIC CHECK TO

GET CLICKS.

WITH FREEDOM COMES

RESPONSIBILITY.

Reporter: IT IS A

SIGN OF THE RELATIONSHIP

TO COME BETWEEN THE FUTURE

PRESIDENT AND THE PRESS.

TRUMP DOESN'T BELIEVE THE

MAINSTREAM MEDIA TREATS

HIM WITH RESPECT.

HE THINKS THEY'RE IN THE

TANK FOR DEMOCRATS AND

DON'T APPRECIATE THE

AMERICAN MUTUA MOVEMENT HE HAS

TAPPED INTO.

GO AHEAD.

NO, NOT YOU.

NOT YOU.

YOUR ORGANIZATION IS

TERRIBLE.

YOUR ORGANIZATION IS

TERRIBLE.

LET'S GO.

GO AHEAD.

QUIET.

QUIET.

Reporter: HIS STAFF

HAS PROMISED TO SHAKE UP

THE WHITE HOUSE BRIEFING

ROOM.

DESPITE THIS LOVE-HATE

RELATIONSHIP, TRUMP WAS

NOT RATTLED.

HE SAYS RUSSIA IS

RESPONSIBLE FOR THE

CYBER-HACK OF THE D.N.C.,

BUT SAYS THAT'S NOT WHERE

THE FOCUS SHOULD BE SINCE

COUNTRIES LI LIKE CHINA HAVE

HACKED THE U.S., TOO.

TRUMP ALSO ANSWERED HOW HE

WILL SEPARATE HIMSELF FROM

HIS VAST BUSINESS

HOLDINGS.

DOZENS OF FOLDERS HOLD

DOCUMENTS HE SIGNED TO

TURN HIS COMPANIES OVER TO

A TRUST TO BE MANAGED BY

HIS TWO SONS.

I HOPE AT THE END OF

EIGHT YEARS, I'LL COME

BACK AND I'LL SAY, OH, YOU

DID A GOOD JOB.

OTHERWISE, IF THEY DID A

BAD JOB, I'LL SAY, "YOU'RE

FIRED."

Reporter: WHILE IN

OFFICE, TRUMP WILL DONATE

PROFITS FROM HIS

INTERNATIONAL HOTELS TO

THE U.S. TREASURY.

AND HE IS MOVING FORWARD

WITH ONE OF THE GREATEST

RESPONSIBILITIES OF HIS

NEW JOB: APPOINTING A NEW

JUSTICE TO THE SUPREME

COURT.

IT WILL BE A DECISION

WHICH I VERY STRONGLY

BELIEVE IN.

I THINK IT IS ONE OF THE

REASONS I GOT ELECTED.

I THINK THE PEOPLE OF THIS

COUNTRY DID NOT WANT TO

SEE W WHAT WAS HAPPENING

WITH THE SUPREME COURT.

Reporter: NOW HE IS

LOOKING FORWARD TO HIS

INAUGURATION AND

CELEBRATING WITH THE

AMERICANS WHO PUT HIM IN

OFFICE.

BECAUSE WE HAVE A

MOVEMENT.

IT IS A MOVEMENT LIKE THE

WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN

BEFORE.

IT IS A MOVEMENT A LOT OF

PEOPLE DIDN'T EXPECT.

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS, TRUMP

TOWER, NEW YORK.

Efrem: RUSSIA WAS AT

THE CENTER OF REX

TILLERSON'S CONFIRMATION

HEARINGS IN WASHINGTON.

HE IS UP FOR SECRETARY OF

STATE.

HE WAS A CHIEF EXECUTIVE

AT EXXON-MOBIL AND HAD

EXTENSIVE BUSINESS

DEALINGS WITH RUSSIA.

SOME SAY THAT COULD HURT

HIS CHANCES OF BEING

CONFIRMED, BUT NEWT

GINGRICH SAYS THOSE

DEALINGS WERE STRICTLY

BUSINESS AND SHOULD BE

THOUGHT OF THAT WAY.

I THINK TILLERSON IS SO

IMPRESSIVE AND HAS DONE

SUCH A GREAT JOB AS HEAD

OF THE BOY SCOUTS, AS HEAD

OF ONE OF THE LARGEST

CORPORATIONS IN THE WORK.

AS HE TALKS TO THE

SENATORS, THEY'RE GOING TO

BE COMFORTABLE.

HE DOESN'T HAVE A GOOD

RELATIONSHIP WITH PUTIN,

LIKE THEY'RE FRIENDS AT

THE ROTARY CLUB.

THEY HAD A GOOD

BUSINESS-LIKE RELATIONSHIP

BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO DO

BUSINESS IN RUSSIA.

HE WAS ABLE TO WORK WITH

THEM IN A VERY PRACTICAL,

HARD-NOSED WAY.

Efrem: NOMINATIONS ON

TRUMP'S NOMINEES WILL

CONTINUE NEXT WEEK.

Reporter: REX

TILLERSON, PRESIDENT-ELECT

TRUMP'S NOMINEE TO BE THE

NEXT SECRETARY OF STATE,

WAS ON THE SENATE HOT SEAT

ON WEDNESDAY.

HIS GRILLING CAME NOT FROM

DEMOCRATS, BUT FROM

REPUBLICANS, LIKE MARCO

RUBIO.

IS VLADIMIR PUTIN A WAR

CRIMINAL?

I WOULD NOT USE THAT

TERM.

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT

VLADIMIR PUTIN AND HIS

CRONIES ARE RESPONSIBLE

FOR ORDERING THE MURDER OF

COUNTLESS DISSIDENTS AND

POLITICAL OPPONENTS?

I DO NOT HAVE

SUFFICIENT INFORMATION TO

MAKE THAT CLAIM.

Reporter: ON CRIMEA,

TILLERSON SAID RUSSIA'S

ACTION WAS NOT LEGAL.

HE SAYS RUSSIA SHOULD HAVE

BEEN CHALLENGED AT THE

BORDER WITH UKRAINIAN

TROOPS.

HIS CONCERN FOR THE

FUTURE?

RUSSIA TODAY POSSESS A

DANGER.

OUR ALLIES ARE RIGHT TO BE

ALARMED.

Reporter: HE SAYS

AMERICA NEEDS TO MOVE

RUSSIA FROM BEING AN

ADVERSARY TO BEING A

PARTNER ON TIME.

ON ISRAEL, TILLERSON SAYS

THE NATION REMAINS

AMERICA'S MOST IMPORTANT

ALLY IN THE NATION.

HE CALLED THE RECENT

RESOLUTION AGAINST ISRAEL

NOT HELPFUL.

TILLERSON SAYS HE FOUND

JOHN KERRY'S RECENT SPEECH

ON ISRAEL QUITE TROUBLING

BECAUSE OF ITS ATTACKS ON

ISRAEL.

DOES HE SUPPORT THE

INTERNATIONALLY ACCEPTED

IDEA OF A TWO-STATE

SOLUTION, ISRAEL AND THE

PALESTINIANS LIVING SIDE

BY SIDE?

I THINK THAT IS THE

DREAM THAT EVERYONE IS IN

PURSUIT OF.

IF IT CAN BE A REALITY,

REMAINS TO BE SEEN.

Reporter: IN A

UNPRECEDENTED MOVE FOR A

SITTING SENATOR, CORY

BOOKER TESTIFIED AGAINST

HIS FELLOW SENATOR.

HE EXPLAINED WHY HE

OPPOSED THE SESSIONS'

NOMINATION.

SENATOR SESSIONS HAS NO

DEMONSTRATED A COMMITMENT

TO A CENTRAL REQUISITE OF

THE JOB.

TO PURSUE CIVIL RIGHTS,

EQUAL RIGHTS, AND JUSTICE

FOR ALL OF OUR CITIZENS.

Reporter: A MEMBER OF

THE U.S. CIVIL RIGHTS

COMMISSION DISAGREED.

SENATOR SESSIONS'

APPROACH TO CIVIL RIGHTS

IS LEGALLY SOUND AND

HONEST AND HAS AN

APPRECIATION AND

UNDERSTANDING OF THE BASIS

FOR CIVIL RIGHTS LAWS.

Reporter: TODAY'S

CONFIRMATION HEARINGS ARE

EXPECTED TO BE LESS

CONTENTIOUS.

APPEARING WILL BE JAMES

MAD DOG MADDIS, AND BEN

CARSON, AND MIKE POMPEO

FOR DIRECTOR.

Efrem: IT IS A DIRECT

RESPONSE TO THE UNITED

NATIONS RECENT RESOLUTION

AGAINST ISRAEL.

CUFFI IS PUSHING

WASHINGTON TO BACK BILLS

TO FORCE THE PRESIDENT TO

MOVE THE ISRAELI EMBASSY

TO JERUSALEM.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU CALLED

THE U.N. RESOLUTION

SHAMEFUL, AND HE AGREES.

JOHN HAGI HAD A CLEAR

MESSAGE FOR NETANYAHU.

MR. PRIME MINISTER,

CHRISTIANS UNITING FOR

ISRAEL HAS ANSWERED THE

CALL TONIGHT.

ALL 3.3 MILLION OF THEM

STAND WITH YOU AND STAND

WITH ISRAEL AND STAND WAS

THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

Efrem: TWO

CUFFI-BACKED BILLS BLAST

THE RESOLUTION, AND WOULD

CUT AID UNTIL THE U.S.

EMBASSY IS MOVED TO

JERUSALEM.

> MUSLIMS ARE TURNING TO

CHRIST IN LARGE NUMBERS

ACROSS THE MIDDLE EAST,

ACCORDING TO THE CHRISTIAN

POSTAL.

THE REPORT SAYS MUSLIMS

ARE TURNING TO JESUS

CHRIST AND THEY'RE VIEWING

CHRISTIANITY AS, QUOTE,

"THE RELIGION OF FREEDOM

AMID PERSECUTION IN THEIR

COUNTRY."

THE VOICE OF THE MARTYRS

OF CANADA SAID, QUOTE,

"THERE ARE THOUSANDS UPON

THOUSANDS COMING TO

CHRIST."

THERE IS NOW AN ESTIMATED

366,000 CHRISTIAN

BELIEVERS IN IRAN, WHICH

IS UP FROM ONLY 500 IN

1979.

AND CHURCH LEADERS BELIEVE

THAT MILLIONS CAN BE ADDED

TO THE CHURCH IN THE

COMING YEARS.

> A PAINTING BY A HIGH

SCHOOL STUDENT HAS SET OFF

A BATTLE IN CONGRESS.

IT DEPICTS AN IMAGE OF A

PIG IN A POLICE UNIFORM,

AIMING A GUN AT A

PROTESTORS.

IT IS HANGING IN THE

CAPITAL, ALONG WITH

HUNDREDS OF OTHER WORKS OF

ART THAT WERE CHOSE IN

YEAR'S CONGRESSIONAL ARTS

COMPETITION.

BUT THEY ARDEMOCRATS ARG THE ARGUE THE

PAINTING REPRESENTS FREE

SPEECH.

> A GOSPEL GOSPEL

LAWMAKER WANTS TENNESSEE

TAGS TO SAY "IN GOD WE

TRUST."

THE BILL WOULD REQUIRE THE

STATE REVENUE DEPARTMENT

TO REDESIGN THE LICENSE

PLATES.

THIS IS NOT THE FIRST

EFFORT.

LAST YEAR A BILL WAS

VETOED THAT WOULD HAVE

MADE TENNESSEE THE FIRST

STATE IN THE COUNTRY TO

DECLARE THE BIBLE AS ITS

OFFICIAL BOOK.

> COMING UP, THEY ARE

HARD-CORE CRIMINALS, BUT

THE MESSAGE OF JESUS

CHRIST IS CHANGING THEIR

LIVES.

SEE HOW A UNIQUE

PARTNERSHIP IS GIVING

THESE INMATES A SECOND

CHANCE.

Efrem: THEIR MAXIMUM

SECURITY INMATES, AND

THEY'RE BIBLE DEGREES

BEHIND BARS.

THAT'S A RESULT OF A

UNIQUE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN

TEXAS PRISONS AND

SOUTHWESTERN BAPTIST

THEOLOGICAL SEMINARIES.

THE GOAL IS TO REFORM THE

BIGGEST PRISON BY

SOFTENING HARDENED

CRIMINALS ONE HEART AT A

TIME.

Charlene: 30 MILES

OUT OF HOUSTON, DARINGTON

PRISON HOUSES SOME OF THE

MOST VIOLENT OFFENDERS.

THIS IS A MAXIMUM

SECURITY PRISON.

WE HAVE ALL CUSTODY LEVELS

HERE AT THIS FACILITY.

Charlene: BUT BEHIND

THESE WALLS, HARD-CORE

CRIMINALS ARE TRANSFORMED

INTO MESSENGERS OF HOPE,

THANKS TO A PROGRAM

OFFERED BY SOUTHWESTERN

BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL

CEMETERY.

IT IS TO PREPARE THEM

FOR PASTORAL MINISTRY.

Charlene: THEY TAKE

CLASSES, SUCH AS ENGLISH,

MATH, AND SCIENCE.

THE IDEA FOR THE SEMINARY

CAME IN 2010, WHEN DAN

PATRICK AND SENATOR JOHN

WITMEYER VISITED

LOUISIANA'S ANGOLA PRISON,

WHERE A SIMILAR BIBLE

PROGRAM HELPED CHANGE

THEIR CULTURE OF VIOLENCE.

ANGOLA WAS THE

BLOODIEST PRISON IN

AMERICA.

THEY DECREASED THEIR CRIME

BY 72% SINCE THE BIBLE

STUDY CAME THERE.

THE IDEA IS TO CHANGE THE

CULTURE BY CHANGING THE

HEART WITH THE MESSAGE OF

THE GOSPEL.

Charlene: SERVING A

LIFE SENTENCE, TROOP

FOSTER FOUND HIS LIFE

RADICALLY TRANSFORMED

AFTER TIME IN SOLITARY

CONFINEMENT.

I WAS THINKING ABOUT

SUICIDE.

I WAS THINKING ABOUT

ENDING MY LIFE.

BUT I REMEMBERED THE JESUS

OF MY CHILDHOOD.

SO I GOT ON MY KNEES AND

CRIED OUT TO GOD, PLEASE,

IF YOU'RE HERE, YOU'RE

GOING TO HAVE TO CARRY ME.

FROM THAT POINT FORWARD,

HE REVEALED HIMSELF TO ME.

Charlene: FOSTER

BECAME ONE OF THE

SEMINARY'S FIRST

GRADUATES.

HE NOW MINISTERS TO OTHER

HARDENED GANG MEMBERS.

I WENT BACK AND STARTED

SHARING MY TESTIMONY WITH

THE MEN BACK THERE.

SOME OF THEM WERE REAL

STANDOFFISH AT FIRST.

WHEN I COMPLAINED TO THEM,

I SPENT EIGHT YEARS WHERE

YOU'RE AT, AND I DO IT IN

LOVE.

AND I HAVE HAD MEN COME TO

KNOW JESUS CHRIST.

THE DEMOGRAPHIC THAT WE

HAVE, SOME OF THESE GUYS,

IT'S BEEN 20 YEARS SINCE

THEY WERE IN SCHOOL.

AND WHEN THEY WERE IN

SCHOOL, IT WASN'T THAT

GREAT OF AN EDUCATION.

SO I TEACH HOW TO WRITE A

RESEARCH PAPER, HOW TO

WRITE A BOOK REVIEW,

MEMORIZATION SKILLS AND

STUDY HABITS, TO TRY AND

BRIDGE THAT GAP.

Charlene: NEARLY 50

INMATES HAVE COMPLETED

SEMINARY HERE AT THE

PRISON.

BUT IT IS THE SPIRITUAL

TRANSFORMATION THAT MAKES

ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE.

OUR PURPOSE IS TO NOT

ONLY GIVE THEM A

THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION, BUT

TO PASS ON FROM FACULTY

MEMBER TO STUDENT OUR

HEART FOR MINISTRY, FOR

THE BIBLE, FOR THE LOVE OF

JESUS, AND FOR THE LOVE OF

THEIR INMATES.

Charlene: INMATE

VONDRE CASH IS SERVING A

45 YEAR SENTENCE.

DESPITE NOT BEING VERY

RELIGIOUS, HE FELT DRAWN

TO THE PROGRAM.

I WAS SEARCHING.

I HAD DOUBTS ABOUT

CHRISTIANITY BEFORE I CAME

TO THE PROGRAM.

I HAD DOUBTS ABOUT

RELIGION, PERIOD.

BUT WHEN I CAME TO THE

PROGRAM, THE LOVE THAT THE

PROFESSORS SHOWED TO ME,

THE CARE AND THE PATIENCE

THEY SHOWED, AND THEY

REMEMBERED ALL OF THE

STUDENTS.

Charlene: THAT LOVE

LED CASH INTO A MORE

INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH

GOD.

AS A GRADUATE OF THE BIBLE

COLLEGE, HE NOW SHARES THE

HOPE HE FOUND WITH OTHERS.

BEING ABLE TO DIALOGUE

WITH ME ON A SPIRITUAL

WITH ME, TALK WITH THEM IN

BIBLE STUDIES, TALK WITH

THEM IN PRAYER CIRCLES,

THAT IS REWARDING IN AND

OF ITSELF.

Charlene: WARDON, WHO

ONCE SPENT TIME, SAYS THE

PROGRAM IS FAR-REACHING.

THIS HAPPENS ALL OF THE

TIME, ASKING STUDENTS TO

PRAY FOR THEM OR ANSWERING

SOME QUESTIONS -- THAT

SORT OF THING HAS HAPPENED

FROM THE BEGINNING.

Charlene: THE WARDEN

ALSO SEES THE DIFFERENCE.

IT HELPS CALM DOWN WHAT

IS GOING ON AT THIS

FACILITY.

Charlene: GRADUATES

ARE DISPATCHED TO PRISONS

ACROSS TEXAS, AND LIVE

AMONG THE GENERAL

POPULATION, WHERE THEY

HOPE TO ENCOURAGE FELLOW

INMATES TO CHANGE THEIR

WAYS.

FOSTER, WHO WILL BE ALMOST

80 BEFORE HE IS ELIGIBLE

FOR PAROLE, SAYS IT IS HIS

LIFE'S PURPOSE TO SERVE

OTHERS, WHETHER INSIDE OR

OUTSIDE PRISON WALLS.

SOME PEOPLE GRADUATE

COLLEGE AND SEMINARY AND

THEY GO TO NORTH AFRICA OR

CZECHOSLOVAKIA OR RUSSIA

FOR THEIR MISSION FIELD.

THIS IS MY MISSION FIELD.

IT IS A MISSION FIELD.

I'VE ALREADY ADAPTED TO

THE CULTURE HERE.

THIS IS A MISSION FIELD

WHERE I KNOW THE LANGUAGE.

AND GOD HAS CALLED ME.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS, ROSHARON,

TEXAS.

Efrem: THE WOMEN WHO

HELPED LAUNCH AN AMERICAN

INTO SPACE.

WE'LL SHOW YOU MORE ABOUT

THE NEW BOX OFFICE HIT,

"HIDDEN FIGURES."

Efrem: "HIDDEN

FIGURES" TELLS THE TRUE

STORY OF THREE BLACK

WOMEN, ALL MATHEMATICIANS,

WHO WERE KEY TO THE EARLY

SUCCESS OF AMERICA'S SPACE

PROGRAM.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS

UPLIFTING HISTORICAL FILM.

DO YOU HAVE

IDENTIFICATION ON YOU?

YES, SIR.

WE'RE JUST ON OUR WAY TO

WORK.

NASA, SIR.

NASA?

I HAD NO IDEA THEY

HIRED...

THERE ARE QUITE A FEW

WOMEN WORKING IN THE SPACE

PROGRAM.

I LEARNED ABOUT THESE

WOMEN WHEN THIS PROJECT

WAS OFFERED TO ME.

AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS

FICTION.

I KNEW "HIDDEN FIGURES"

WAS GOING TO BE ONE OF THE

BEST ROLES, SO FAR, FOR ME

IN MY FILM CAREER BECAUSE

OF THE TENACITY, THE

COURAGE, THE FREEDOM, THE

FEARLESSNESS OF THIS

CHARACTER.

IF YOU WERE LIKE ME,

WOULD YOU WISH TO BE AN

ENGINEER?

I WOULDN'T HAVE TO.

I'D ALREADY BEEN ONE.

THESE WOMEN JUST

UNDERSTOOD EACH OTHER.

THEY WERE, TO ME, A

THREE-PART HARMONY.

HOW THE HELL DID WE

FIND OURSELVES IN SECOND

PLACE IN A TWO-MAN RACE.

FIND A GENIUS AMONG THOSE

GENIUSES.

WHAT THEY DID HAS A LOT

TO DO WITH WHERE WE ARE IN

SPACE TODAY.

KATHRYN GOBAL, SIR.

THIS WOMAN IS REAL.

SHE IS NOT FICTIONAL, AND

I WANT TO DO HER STORY

RIGHT.

COMPUTERS DON'T AUTHOR

REPORTS.

FIX IT.

THOSE ARE MY

CALCULATIONS.

THAT'S THE WAY THIS

WORKS.

I AM PLAYING A

CHARACTER IN THIS WHO, FOR

SEVERAL REASONS, NOT ALL

OF THEM BASED ON RACE OR

GENDER -- BUT HE'S GOT

SOME ISSUES WITH THE WOMAN

THAT TARAJI P. HENSON

PLACE.

SHE IS A WOMAN.

THERE IS NO PROTOCOL FOR A

WOMAN --

OKAY, I GET THAT PART,

PAUL.

THEY WERE TREATED LIKE

SECOND, THIRD, FOURTH,

FIFTH, SIXTH-CLASS

CITIZENS.

INCOMES A COMPUTER,

KATHRYN, PLAYED BY TARAJI

P. HENSON, AND SHE KNOWS

HER MATH.

HE MENTIONED YOU'RE A

COMPUTER AT NASA.

THAT'S PRETTY HEAVY STUFF.

YES, IT IS.

THEY LET WOMEN HANDLE

THAT SORT OF...THAT'S NOT

WHAT I MEAN.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

I'M JUST SURPRISED THAT

SOMETHING SO TAXING --

MR. JOHNSON, IF I WERE

YOU, I WOULD QUIT TALKING

RIGHT NOW.

I MEAN NO DISRESPECT.

I WILL HAVE YOU KNOW ON

ANY GIVEN DAY, I ANALYZE

AIR, SPACE, FRICTION, AND

VELOCITY, AND COMPUTE OVER

10,000 CALCULATIONS BY

HAND.

SO, YES, THEY LET WOMEN DO

SOME THINGS AT NASA,

MR. THOMPSON.

IT WAS IN THE '60s,

AND EVERYTHING WAS

SEGREGATED, AND THERE WAS

RACISM, NO DOUBT, AND SHE

WAS A WOMAN.

BUT SHE DIDN'T LET ANY OF

THAT HOLD HER BACK.

IT WAS LIKE SHE HAD EVERY EVERY

OBSTACLE STACKED AGAINST

HER, AND NOTHING COULD

STOP HER.

I NEED A MATHEMATICIAN

WHO CAN LOOK BEYOND THE

NUMBERS.

DO YOU HAVE SOMEONE?

HEATHER IS THE GAL FOR

THAT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT A

BETTER FIRST PRODUCER

CREDIT I COULD EVER

RECEIVE.

YOU'VE BEEN GONE FOR

300 HOURS.

WAS MAMA GONE FOR 12

AND A HALF DAYS?

NO, BUT IT FELT LIKE

IT.

IT FELT LIKE IT TO ME,

TOO.

THESE WOMEN WERE MOMS

AND SINGLE MOMS IN THE

EARLY 1960s, BUT WHAT

THEY WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR

WOULD GO ON TO CHANGE THE

HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY.

SHALL WE LAUNCH THIS

ROCKET?

WE'RE PUTTING A HUMAN

ON TOP OF A MISSILE AND

SHOOTING THEM INTO SPACE,

AND IT HAS NEVER BEEN DONE

BEFORE.

BY PUTTING STORIES OUT

THERE, SOME LITTLE GIRL IN

SOME REGION OF THE WORLD

WILL KNOW SHE HAS VALUES.

GENERATIONS TO COME

WILL LOVE AND APPRECIATE

THIS BECAUSE THEY'RE

SEEING A SHINING EXAMPLE

OF SOMEONE WHO DID IT WHEN

THE CONDITIONS WERE NOT

FAVORABLE.

I HOPE THAT PEOPLE ARE

INSPIRED TO NEVER STOP

DREAMING.

WE'RE IN THE FIGHT OF

OUR LIVES, PEOPLE.

FIVE, FOUR, THREE, TWO,

ONE.

THEY JUST WERE ORDINARY

WOMEN, LIVING THEIR LIVES,

BEING THE GENIUSES THAT

THEY WERE, AND LOOK AT

Efrem: TIME FOR YOUR

THURSDAY THANKFUL, AND

TODAY I'M THANKFUL FOR

FORGIVENESS.

FATHER, THANK YOU FOR YOUR

ENDLESS SUPPLY OF

FORGIVENESS.

YOUR GRACE AND MERCY ARE

BEYOND AMAZING.

IT IS A LESSON WE SHOULD

NEVER FORGET.

WITH THAT WORD, MAKE THIS

A THANKFUL THURSDAY.

> AND THAT WILL DO IT

FOR THIS EDITION OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

REMEMBER, YOU CAN ALWAYS

FIND MORE OF OUR EXCLUSIVE

COVERAGE OF THE ISSUES YOU

CARE MOST ABOUT AT

STORIES YOU'VE SEEN HERE
