CBN NewsWatch: January 24, 2017

On CBN Newswatch, January 24: ‘God visited us in a big way.’ The day relief came to the displaced victims of Boko Haram; Tornado crushed Christian university but didn't touch Bible or Jesus statue, and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: AHEAD ON

"NEWSWATCH," PRESIDENT

TRUMP MAKES GOOD ON SOME

CAMPAIGN PROMISES.

WHAT HE DID THAT HAS THE

PRO-LIFE COMMUNE

CELEBRATING.

> PLUS, REPLACING

JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA ON

THE SUPREME COURT.

FIND OUT THE TOP

FAVORITES.

> AND BOKO HARAM

TERRORISTS DESTROYED THEIR

HOMES AND THEIR CHURCHES.

SO HOW CBN IS MEETING THE

NEEDS OF THESE HOMELESS

NIGERIAN REFUGEES.

> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

SURVIVORS OF THE DEADLY

STORM THAT SWEPT THROUGH

THE SOUTH ARE PICKING UP

THE PIECES AFTER THE

DESTRUCTION.

AUTHORITIES SAY AT LEAST

20 PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN

AN OUTBREAK OF TORNADOES

AND THUNDERSTORMS.

GEORGIA ALONE ACCOUNTED

FOR 15 OF THOSE DEATHS.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THIS

STORY.

DUDE, I THINK THAT'S A

TORNADO.

Charlene:

SEARCH-AND-RESCUE

OPERATIONS ARE UNDER WAY

IN GEORGIA AND

MISSISSIPPI, AFTER DEADLY

STORMS TORE THROUGH THE

REGION.

IT LOOKS LIKE A NUCLEAR

BOMB WENT OFF.

Charlene: THIS MOBILE

HOME PARK IN GEORGIA WAS

FLATTENED TO THE GROUND.

ALL OF THIS DAMAGE

HAPPENED IN A MATTER OF

MINUTES.

WE COVERED EACH OTHER

AND WE JUST LAID THERE AND

PRAYED, LORD, PLEASE LET

IT PASS OVER.

Charlene: STATES OF

EMERGENCY HAVE BEEN

DECLARED IN GEORGIA AND

MISSISSIPPI.

WE HAVE CREWS OUT HERE

CLEARING THE ROADWAYS, BUT

IT IS GOING TO TAKE A

WHILE.

Charlene: ALBANY,

GEORGIA, WAS HIT HARD.

CBN'S "OPERATION BLESSING"

IS ON THE GROUND, OFFERING

PEOPLE MUCH-NEEDEDED HELP.

BEHIND ME IS THE HOME

OF MISS WILLIAMS, WHERE

SHE AND HER 84-YEAR-OLD

MAMA LIVE.

STRAIGHT LINE WINDS

DEVASTATED ANOTHER PORTION

OF THIS COMMUNITY,

BRINGING EXTENSIVE DAMAGE.

THIS IS A DEVASTATING AND

CHALLENGING TIME FOR THIS

COMMUNITY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

WORKING WITH LOCAL

CHURCHES AND LOCAL

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT TO

ASSESS THE AREA AND BRING

IN VOLUNTEERS AND OUR

EQUIPMENT TO HELP THIS

COMMUNITY GET BACK ON

THEIR FEET.

YOU JUST DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO GO.

SO IF SOMEBODY IS COMING

TO HELP YOU, YOU ACCEPT

ALL OF THE HELP YOU CAN

GET.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: A CHRISTIAN

UNIVERSITY IN MISSISSIPPI

WAS ALSO HIT HARD BY THOSE

DEVASTATING TORNADOES.

WILLIAM KERRY UNIVERSITY

SUFFERED EXTENSIVE DAMAGE,

BUT THANKFULLY NO ONE WAS

KILLED.

A SCHOOLS SPOKESPERSON

SAYS NEARLY ALL OF THE 30

BUILDINGS ON CAMPUS WERE

DAMAGED, AND ABOUT 100

VEHICLES WERE TOTALLED.

BUT THE UNIVERSITY

PRESIDENT SAYS SOMETHING

REMARKABLE HAPPENED AT THE

CHAPEL.

WE HAD EXTENSIVE DAMAGE

TO OUR BEAUTIFUL CHAPEL ON

CAMPUS, BUT THE BIBLE ON

THE PULPIT IS LEFT

UNDISTURBED.

AND IT'S OPEN TO PSALM 46:

"GOD IS OUR REFUGE AND

STRENGTH IN TIMES OF

TROUBLE."

Efrem: THE WORD OF

GOD STANDS.

THE UNIVERSITY IS

ACCEPTING CASH DONATIONS,

TO HELP STUDENTS REPLACE

THEIR BOOKS AND COMPUTERS,

AS WELL AS THEIR VEHICLES.

> DONALD TRUMP IS MOVING

FORWARD WITH A ROBUST

FIRST WEEK, AND HE STARTED

BY ADVANCING PRO-LIFE

POLICY.

JENNIFER WISHON EXPLAINS.

Jennifer: ON HIS

FIRST OFFICIAL WORKDAY,

PRESIDENT TRUMP

REINSTATEDED THE POLICY

THAT PROHIBITS OTHER

COMPANIES THAT RECEIVE

MONEY FROM GOVERNMENT FROM

PROMOTING ABORTIONS.

> HERE AT HOME, CAN

PRO-LIFE AMERICANS EXPECT

HIM TO PUT HIS SIGNATURE

ON LEGISLATION THAT WILL

DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD?

I THINK THE PRESIDENT,

IT IS NO SECRET, HAS MADE

IT CLEAR HE IS A PRO-LIFE

PRESIDENT.

HE WANTS TO STAND UP FOR

ALL AMERICANS, INCLUDING

THE UNBORN.

AND I THINK THE

REINSTATEMENT OF THAT

POLICY ECHOES THAT VALUE

AND RESPECTS TAXPAYERS'

VALUES.

WE ARE STANDING UP FOR

LIFE, LIFE OF THE UNBORN,

AND ALSO FOR TAXPAYER

FUNDS BEING SPENT OVERSEAS

TO PERFORM AN ACTION THAT

IS CONTRARY TO THE VALUES

OF THIS PRESIDENT, AND I

THINK CONTINUE TO FURTHER

ILLUSTRATE NOT JUST TO

FOLKS HERE IN THIS

COUNTRY, BUT AROUND THE

WORLD WHAT A VALUE WE

PLACE ON LIFE.

Jennifer: IT IS A

FIRST NOD TO EVANGELICALS,

WHO OVERWHELMING SUPPORTED

HIS CANDIDACY.

AT THE FIRST PRESS

BRIEFING, HE CALLED FIRST

ON THE NEW YORK POST AND

SECOND ON CBN NEWS, BY

PASSING THE MAINSTREAM

MEDIA.

TRUMP'S MOVE TO REDUCE

ABORTION COMES AS THE

GROUP "LIVE ACTION"

RELEASES A NEW

INVESTIGATION THAT DEBUNKS

PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S CLAIM

THAT IT PROVIDES PRENATAL

SERVICES FOR PREGNANT

WOMEN.

WE SPECIALIZE IN

ABORTIONS.

THAT'S WHAT OUR

ULTRASOUNDS ARE FOR, TO

SEE HOW FAR ALONG THE

PATIENT IS.

Jennifer: PRESIDENT

TRUMP TODAY MEETS WITH

AUTOMAKERS TO DISCUSS

AMERICAN MANUFACTURING,

ONE OF THE SECTORS OF THE

ECONOMY HE IS WORKING TO

REINVIGORATE.

HE IS WORKING FOR THAT

MAN OR WOMAN WHO IS DOING

EVERYTHING THEY CAN RIGHT

BUT CAN'T CATCH A BREAK.

Jennifer: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Efrem: HUNDREDS OF

PEOPLE WHO OPPOSE ABORTION

JOINED TOGETHER AT THE

KANSAS STATE HOUSE TO MARK

THE 1973 SUPREME COURT

DECISION THAT LEGALIZED

ABORTIONS ACROSS THE

NATION.

ACACTIVISTS AND PRO-LIFE

STUDENTS WENT TO THE RALLY

FOR LIFE.

THE RALLY WAS ALSO

ACCOMPANIED BY WORSHIP

SERVICES AND WORKSHOPS,

LEADING UP TO THE ANNUAL

MARCH FOR LIFE ON FRIDAY

IN WASHINGTON.

> IN THE LAST FEW HOURS

BEFORE LEAVING OFFICE,

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HIS

ADMINISTRATION QUIETLY

RELEASED $221 MILLION TO

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY.

G.O.P. MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

HAD TRIED TO BLOCK THAT

MOVE, BUT FORMER SECRETARY

OF STATE JOHN KERRY TOOK

THE ACTION ANYWAY RIGHT

BEFORE HE LEFT THE STATE

DEPARTMENT FOR THE LAST

TIME ON THURSDAY.

THE WRITTEN NOTIFICATION,

DATED JANUARY 20th, WAS

SENT TO CONGRESS HOURS

BEFORE DONALD TRUMP TOOK

THE OATH OF OFFICE.

ANOTHER $6 MILLION IN

FOREIGN AFFAIRS SPENDING

WAS ALSO RELEASED, MOST OF

IT GOING TO CLIMATE CHANGE

AND THE UNITED NATIONS.

> FOR MANY PEOPLE, THE

MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE OF

TRUMP'S PRESIDENCY WILL BE

WHO HE PICKS FOR LIFETIME

APPOINTMENTS TO THE

SUPREME COURT.

THE PRESIDENT WILL SOON

HAVE TO MAKE THAT CHOICE

FOR A NEW JUSTICE ON THE

HIGH COURT TO REPLACE

ANTONIN SCALIA.

PAUL STRAND BRINGS US THIS

STORY.

Reporter: MANY PEOPLE

VOTEDED FOR TRUMP JUST

BECAUSE OF THEIR WORRY OF

WHAT DAMAGE A MORE LIBERAL

SUPREME COURT COULD DO IN

YEARS AHEAD.

CURT LEVY, OF THE

COMMITTEE FOR JUSTICE AND

FREEDOM WORKS.

THE PEOPLE WERE

PARTICULARLY SICK OF

LIBERAL JUDICIAL ACTIVISM.

Reporter: GROUPS ARE

OFFERING THEIR OPINIONS

ABOUT THOSE NOW ON THE

PRESIDENT-ELECT'S SHORT

LIST.

JOHN MALCOLM SAYS WILLIAM

PRYOR IS A FAVORITE ON

BLASTING THE COURT ON THE

1973 RULING, LEGALIZING

ABORTION.

HE REFERRED TO ROE VS.

WADE AS THE WORST

ABOMINATION IN HISTORY.

AND SOME OF THE

DEMOCRATS ACCUSED HIM

BASICALLY OF BEING TOO

CATHOLIC.

AND WE TOOK OUT ADS THAT

SAID CATHOLICS NEED NOT

APPLY.

Reporter: DIANE SIKES

WILL FACE OPPOSITION.

SHE HAS A LONG TRACK

RECORD AND HAS CERTAINLY

WRITTEN A NUMBER OF

OPINIONS THAT PLEASE

CONSERVATIVES.

SO I'M SURE THAT THE

DEMOCRATS WOULD COME UP

WITH SOME WAY TO ATTACK

HER.

Reporter: AND THEY

POINTED OUT 4 48-YEAR-OLD

JUSTICE JOAN CLARKSON.

SHE WAS HIGHLY ADMIRED

BY ALL OF THE JUDGES.

LARSEN WAS ALSO A STATE

JUDGE.

AND NONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO

ARE THERE NOW CAME FROM

STATE COURTS.

ALL OF THE SCALIA

CLERKS THINK HIGHLY OF

HER, AND THAT SAYS

SOMETHING ABOUT HER

JUDICIAL PHILOSOPHY.

Reporter: AND THEN

THERE IS FEDERAL JUDGE

THOMAS HARDIMAN, WHO USED

TO DRIVE A TAXI WHILE IN

LAW SCHOOL.

HE GREW UP IN A FAMILY

OF VERY, VERY MODEST

NEEDS.

I DON'T THINK THAT HIS

PARENTS WENT TO COLLEGE.

HE PUT HIMSELF CERTAINLY

THROUGH LAW SCHOOL, AND

POSSIBLY THROUGH COLLEGE

AS WELL, DRIVING A

TAXICAB.

Reporter: DEMOCRATS,

LIKE CHUCK SCHUMER, HAVE

SWORN STIFF OPPOSITION TO

VIRTUALLY ANY TRUMP

NOMINEE.

I DON'T CARE HOW

QUALIFIED YOU ARE, THE

FACT THAT YOU'RE

CONSERVATIVE IS REASON

ENOUGH TO OPPOSE YOU.

SCHUMER IS HIGH ON THAT

LIST OF DEMOCRATS WHO HAVE

SAID THAT.

I THINK HE WILL TRY TO

OBSTRUCT ANY NOMINATION.

Reporter: BUT SINCE

WHEN THEY WERE THE

MAJORITY THEY USED THE

SO-CALLED "NUCLEAR OPTION"

TO STOP THE MINORITY FROM

BLOCKING OBAMA NOMINEES,

DEMOCRATS ARE LIKELY TO

FACE THAT NOW.

THE SHOE IS SOMEWHAT ON

THE OTHER FOOT.

AT THE END OF THE DAY,

IF THEY TRY TO FILIBUSTER,

THE REPUBLICANS WILL USE

THE NUCLEAR OPTION.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH

DEMOCRATS HAVE LOST MUCH

OF THEIR POWER, THEY'RE

SURE TO PUT UP A FIGHT

AGAINST THE PICKS.

PAUL STRAND, REPORTING

FROM THE SUPREME COURT.

Efrem: HE IS SET TO

BECOME THE TOP LAW

ENFORCEMENT OFFICER IN THE

UNITED STATES.

WENDY GRIFFITH BRINGS US

THIS LOOK AT DONALD

TRUMP'S NOMINEE FOR

ATTORNEY, ALABAMA SENATOR

JEFF SESSIONS.

Wendy: JEFFERSON

SESSIONS WAS BORN IN

SELMA, ALABAMA, IN 1946.

DESPITE HUMBLE BEGINNINGS,

HE DID WELL IN SCHOOL,

SERVED AS U.S. ATTORNEY

FOR ALABAMA'S SOUTHERN

DISTRICT, THE STATE'S

ATTORNEY-GENERAL, AND WAS

ELECTEDED TO THE U.S.

SENATE IN 1996, WHERE HE

HAS SERVED EVER SINCE.

FRIENDS SAY HIS COUNTRY

UPBRINGING INSTILLED

VALUES LIKE HARD WORK,

BELIEF IN GOD, AND

PARENTAL RESPECT.

VALUES THAT STILL DEFINE

HIM TODAY.

HE IS A CONSUMMATE

GENTLEMAN.

HE IS VERY COURTEOUS.

Wendy: LONG TIME

FRIEND, BRADLEY BURNES,

SAYS ALABAMANS ARE

THRILLED THAT TRUMP HAS

PEGGED SESSIONS FOR THE

NATION'S TOP LAWYER.

THEY LOVE IT.

THE PEOPLE OF ALABAMA

VOTED VERY STRONGLY FOR

MR. TRUMP.

MAYBE SENATOR SESSIONS HAD

SOMETHING TO DO WITH THAT.

Wendy: DESPITE HIS

POPULARITY, SESSIONS'

CONFIRMATION HEARINGS WERE

PLAGUED BY PROTESTORS

CALLING HIM A RACIST, A

CHARGE THAT HAS HAUNTED

HIM IN 1986, WHEN HE WAS

REFUSED A FEDERAL

JUDGESHIP OVER ALLEGED

RACIST REMARKS, REMARKS HE

DENIED THEN AND NOW.

I'M THE SAME PERSON,

PERHAPS WISER AND MAYBE A

LITTLE BETTER -- I HOPE

SO -- TODAY THAN I WAS

THEN, BUT I DID NOT HARBOR

THE KIND OF ANIMOSITIES

AND RACISM THAT I WAS

ACCUSED OF.

I DO NOT.

Wendy: MANY BLACK

AMERICANS SUPPORT

SESSIONS.

DO YOU THINK SENATOR JEFF

SESSIONS IS A RACIST?

WHEN I CONSIDER SENATOR

JEFF SESSIONS, I CHOOSE TO

REGARD HIS ACTIONS, SUCH

AS DESEGREGATING THE

EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM, WHEN

HE HAD THAT UNDER HIS

PURVIEW.

AND ALSO PROSECUTING THE

KU KLUX KLAN.

AND HE DID PROSECUTE THE

KU KLUX KLAN.

I WOULD NOT CALL

MR. SESSIONS A RACIST.

Wendy: A NUMBER OF

BLACK PASTORS ALSO CAME TO

SESSIONS' DEFENSE.

AMERICANS ARE LIVING IN

A TOXIC CLIMATE, WHERE THE

SERIOUS CHARGE OF RACISM

IS CARELESSLY LEVELLED TO

ANYONE WITH WHOM THE LEFT

DISAGREES.

Wendy: DO YOU THINK

HE'LL SAIL THROUGH

CONFIRMATION HEARINGS, OR

DO YOU THINK IT WILL BE A

FIGHT.

HE WILL NOT SAIL

THROUGH, BUT LET'S BELIEVE

HE WILL MAKE IT THROUGH.

Efrem: THE BRITISH

SUPREME COURT HAS EUD HAS RULED

THE U.K. GOVERNMENT MUST

HOLD A CONFERENCE.

THE RULE ENFORCES THE

GOVERNMENT TO PUT A BILL

BEFORE PARLIAMENT GIVING

PRO-E.U. POLITICIANS A

CHANCE TO SOFTEN THE TERMS

OF BRITAIN'S EXIT FROM THE

E.U.

LEAD CAMPAIGNERS OBJECTED

SAYING PARLIAMENT SHOULD

HAVE THE POWER TO OVERRULE

OF ELECTORATE.

> COMING UP, HE IS ONE

OF THE LOUDEST OPPONENTS

OF OBAMACARE, AND SOON HE

MADE HELP TO REPEAL IT.

WHY PRESIDENT TRUMP

BELIEVES PRICE IS THE BEST

MAN TO REVAMP HEALTH CARE

IN AMERICA.

Efrem: A TOP PRIORITY

FOR THE NEW TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS

REPEALING OBAMACARE AND

RELEASING IT WITH

SOMETHING BETTER.

LORIE JOHNSON HAS A CLOSER

LOOK AT THE MAN WHO THE

PRESIDENT HAS CHOSEN TO

LEAD THAT EFFORT.

THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER.

Lorie: THREE THINGS

HELPED LEAD TO THE

NOMINATION OF 62-YEAR-OLD

GEORGIA CONGRESSMAN TOM

PRICE AS H.H.S. SECRETARY.

FIRST HE CRITICIZED

OBAMACARE LOUDER AND

LONGER THAN ALMOST ANYONE

ON CAPITOL HILL.

26% OF THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE SAY THEY'VE BEEN

HARMED BY THIS LAW.

FOUR OUT OF 10 AMERICANS

SAY THAT THEY HAVE A

POSITIVE VIEW OF THIS

BILL, AND THAT MEANS SIX

OUT OF 10 SAY NO, HELP US.

Lorie: SECOND, HE

JUMPED ON THE TRUMP TRAIN

EARLY IN THE PRESIDENTIAL

CAMPAIGN.

AND THE OTHER PLUS?

HE'S A PHYSICIAN.

BEFORE GOING INTO

PUBLIC SERVICE, I

PRACTICED ORTHOPEDIC

SURGERY FOR OVER 20 YEARS.

THERE IS NOTHING MORE

SACRED IN HEALTH CARE THAN

THE DOCTOR-PATIENT

RELATIONSHIP.

Lorie: THE

H.H.S.SECRETARY OVERSEES A

$1 TRILLION BUDGET AND

MAKES DECISIONS AFFECTING

US ALL, AND ISSUES LIKE

FOOD SAFETY, VACCINES, AND

DEVELOPING LIFE-SAVING

DRUGS, AND ALSO PROGRAMS

ENSURING 100 MILLION

AMERICANS, LIKE MEDICAID,

MEDICARE, AND OBAMACARE.

PRICE HAS PUSHED TO

REPLACE OBAMACARE SINCE IT

FIRST PASSED, BUT HIS

BILLS FAILED.

NOW HE MIGHT GET THE

CHANCE TO IMPLEMENT HIS

IDEAS THROUGH ANOTHER

ROUTE.

THOSE INCLUDE TAX CREDITS

BASED ON AGE, NOT INCOME.

ABILITY TO PURCHASE

PRIVATE INSURANCE ACROSS

STATE LINES TO DRIVE UP

COMPETITION AND LOWER

COSTS.

HE FAVORS EXPANSION OF

HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNTS ON TO

PEOPLE ON GOVERNMENT

HEALTH CARE PLANS.

AND PROTECTION TO COVER

PEOPLE WITH PRE-EXISTING

CONDITIONS.

WE WOULD ALLOW ALL OF

THOSE GROUPS TO POOL

TOGETHER, TO POOL TOGETHER

INTO GROUPS OF HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OR A MILLION OR

MORE INDIVIDUALS SO THEY

GET THE PURCHASING POWER

OF MILLIONS.

AND THEN WHAT HAPPENS THEN

IS THAT IT MAKES IT SO

THAT NO ONE INDIVIDUAL'S

ADVERSE HEALTH STATUS

DRIVES UP THE COST FOR

ANYBODY ELSE.

Lorie: PRICE ALSO

WANTS TO END GOVERNMENT

FUNDING TO PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, AMERICA'S

LARGEST ABORTION PROVIDER.

THEED PRESIDENTHE PRESIDENT OF PLANNED

PARENTHOOD SAYS PRICE

POSSESS A GREAT THREAT TO

WOMEN'S HEALTH AND COULD

TAKE WOMEN BACK DECADES.

SHE ISN'T THE ONLY ONE

OPPOSING PRICE'S

NOMINATION.

CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS

SUGGEST HE VIOLATED ETHICS

RULES BY INVESTING IN

HEALTH CARE STOCKS THAT

WOULD BENEFIT FROM HIS

PROPOSED LEGISLATION.

DESPITE THAT, PRICE HAS

THE BACK OF REPUBLICANS ON

THE HILL, AS WELL AS THE

APPROVAL OF THE AMERICAN

MEDICAL ASSOCIATION AND

THE ASSOCIATION OF

AMERICAN MEDICAL COLLEGES.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: UP NEXT, THEY

HAVE LOST EVERYTHING BUT

THEIR LIVES.

NOW THEY'RE STRUGGLING TO

SURVIVE.

SEE HOW CBN HELPED TO DIG

A WELL AND PROVIDE URGENT

AID TO VICTIMS OF ISLAMIC

TERRORISM.

Efrem: A NIGERIAN

PILOT ACCIDENTALLY BOMBED

A DISPLACED PERSON'S CAMP.

AT LEAST 50 PEOPLE,

INCLUDING HUMANITARIAN

WORKERS, WERE KILLED.

MANY OF THESE VICTIMS OF

BOKO HARAM LACK THE BASIC

NECESSITIES OF LIFE.

SO CBN IS BRINGING RELIEF

TO THESE DESPERATE PEOPLE.

OUR GARY LANE IS ON THE

STORY.

Reporter: WHILE THE

NIGERIAN ARMY SAYS IT HAS

CRUSHED BOKO HARAM,

THOUSANDS OF NIGERIANS

REMAIN DISPLACED.

TENS OF THOUSANDS STILL

LIVE AS REFUGEES FROM

THEIR HOME.

IN 2014, BOKO HARAM

LAUNCHED ALMOST DAILY

ATTACKS AGAINST CHRISTIANS

AND OTHERS, IN AN ATTEMPT

TO VOCAL PARTS OF NORTHERN

NIGERIA AND IMPOSE ITS

BRAND OF SHAR'IA THERE WAS

ON THE PEOPLE.

WHEN BOKO HARAM FIGHTERS

ATTACKED HOMES, CHURCHES

AND BUSINESSES IN THIS

CITY, MANY RESIDENTS

SOUGHT SAFETY IN NEARBY

VILLAGES.

THE TERRORISTS FOLLOWED

THEM TO THE VI VILLAGES,

TERRORIZING AND MURDERING

THE PEOPLE THERE.

THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS

WERE FORCED TO FLEE TO

INTERNLY PLACED CAMPS.

THERE WAS NO PLACE TO

LIVE.

Reporter: TEACHER

DANIEL ALAGAGA IS A

COORDINATOR IN ONE OF THE

CAMPS.

HE SAYS WHILE THE PEOPLE

ARE RECEIVING HELP, OFTEN

THE HELP FALLS SHORT.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: CBN HEARD

ABOUT THE NEEDS OF THE

PEOPLE AND RESPONDED.

OUR HUMANITARIAN AND

DISASTER RELIEF TEAM

PROVIDED FAMILIES WITH

RICE, BEANS, CORN, COOKING

OIL, AND SALT.

THE CHILDREN NEEDED

CLOTHING.

AND MANY OF THE KIDS AT

SHAWARI CAMP WOULD WALK

THREE MILES ROUNDTRIP

WITHOUT SHOES TO COLLECT

DRINKING WATER.

SO OUR CBN TEAM PROVIDED

SHOES TO PROTECT THE

CHILDREN'S FEET.

AND A GENEROUS CBN DONOR

HELPED US PROVIDE THIS

WELL, SO THE PEOPLE COULD

COLLECT WATER RIGHT IN

THEIR CAMP.

THE RESIDENTS WERE

OVERJOYED TO HAVE FRESH,

CLEAN, DRINKING WATER

WITHIN FOOTSTEPS OF THEIR

CAMPS.

ONE WOMAN TOLD US SHE WAS

THANKFUL TO CBN FOR THE

WELL.

GOD VISITED US IN A BIG

WAY.

OTHERS SAID THEY WERE

GRATEFUL FOR THE FOOD AND

CLOTHING AND WILL NEVER

FORGET THE LOVE SHOWN TO

THEM.

AND HOW SHOULD PEOPLE PRAY

FOR THESE CHRISTIANS?

DANIEL SAYS PRAY FOR PEACE

TO BE RESTORED TO THEIR

COUNTRY.

MY BIGGEST DESIRE IS TO

SEE THAT THESE PEOPLE HAVE

RETURNED TH TO THEIR

COMMUNITIES, SO THAT THEY

WILL START LIVING THE

NORMAL LIFE THEY ARE USED

TO LIVING.
