Chris: THIS WEEK ON

"JERUSALEM DATELINE," A

LOOK AT THE WAR OF WORDS

BETWEEN IRAN AND THE U.S.

AS OF TODAY, WE ARE

OFFICIALLY PUTTING IRAN ON

NOTICE.

Chris: AND WE'LL SEE

HOW ISRAEL IS TAKING THE

LEAD IN SY CYBER WARFARE.

> PLUS, THE

HEART-WARMING STORY OF HOW

ONE JEWISH FIL PHILANTHROPIST

IS STANDING WITH

CHRISTIANS IN THE HEART OF

AFRICA.

HELLO, AND WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "JERUSALEM

DATELINE."

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL.

DAYS AFTER DONALD TRUMP'S

INAUGURATION, IRAN

LAUNCHED A BALLISTIC

MISSILE TEST, VIOLATING A

U.N. RESOLUTION.

A QUICK WHITE HOUSE

RESPONSE SHOWED IRAN AND

THE WORLD IT IS NOT

BUSINESS AS USUAL IN

WASHINGTON.

A BALLISTIC MISSILE LAUNCH

IN LATE JANUARY MAY HAVE

BEEN IRAN'S WAY OF TEING

THE REACTION TIME OF THE

NEW TRUMP ADMINISTRATION.

IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG TO

FIND OUT.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS

SEVERELY CRITICIZED THE

VARIOUS AGREEMENTS REACHED

BETWEEN IRAN AND THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION, AS WELL AS

THE UNITED NATIONS, AS

BEING WEAK AND

INEFFECTIVE.

INSTEAD OF BEING THANK

TOLUNITED STATES IN THESE

AGREEMENTS, IRAN IS NOW

FEELING EMBOLDENED.

AS OF TODAY, WE'RE PUTTING

IRAN ON NOTICE.

Chris: AFTER THE

BALLISTIC MISSILE TEST,

FOX NEWS REPORTED IRAN

LAUNCHED A SHORT-RANGE

MISSILE, BUT DAYS AGO,

IRAN REMOVED ANOTHER

BALLISTIC MISSILE FROM ITS

LAUNCH-PAD.

IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN

IF THAT WAS A DIRECT

RESPONSE TO THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION SAYING IRAN

IS ON NOTICE, OR IF ITAS

A TECHNICAL ISSUE THAT

MADE THEM MOVE THE

MISSILE.

BUT I THINK IRAN SHOULD BE

CAUTIOUS.

Chris: MANY BELIEVE

APPEASEMENT ISN'T THE WAY

TO DEAL WITH IRAN.

STRENGTH WORKS.

AND I THINK THE IRANIAN

REGIME WOULD BE THE FIRST

ONES TO TELL YOU THAT.

LET'S REMEMBER WHEN RONALD

REAGAN BECAME PRESIDENT,

THE IRANIANS RELEASED ALL

OF THE AMERICAN HOSTAGES

FOR FEAR THAT UNDER RONALD

REAGAN, THE UNITED STATES

WOULD TAKE MILITARY

ACTION.

Chris: THIS NEW

ATTITUDE REPRESENTS A

MAJOR DEPARTURE FROM HOW

PRESIDENT OBAMA DEALT WITH

THE MULLAHS IN TERRAIN.

MULLAHS IN TEHRAN.

AND IT PUTS ISRAEL AND THE

U.S. ON THE SA PAGE.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

THE PAST EIGHT YEARS,

ISRAEL AND THE UNITED

STATES SEE THE MIDDLE EAST

IN VERY SIMILAR WAYS.

THE NUMBER ONE THREAT TO

REGIONAL MIDDLE EASTERN

STABILITY AND SECURITY IS

THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF

IRAN.

AND THEIR NUCLEAR-BACKED

SURGE FOR REGIONAL DOM

MANS.

ChrisDOMINANCE.

Chris: THE IRAN

THREAT MAY SEEM THE SAME

FOR THE UNITED STATES, BUT

IRAN BOASTED ONE OF THEIR

BALLISTIC MISSILES COULD

REACH ISRAEL IN SEVEN

MINUTES.

IT IS LIKE AN OCTOPUS

SPREADING ITS TENTACLES

AND DESTABILIZING ALMOST

EVERY COUNTRY IN THE

MIDDLE EAST, ACCEPT

ISRAEL.

Chris: AND THE END

GOAL IS TO EVENTUALL

THREATEN THE UNITED

STATES.

IT TARGETS U.S. ALLIES

IN THE REGION.

IT TARGETS U.S. PARTNERS

IN THE REGION, AND IT

SEEKS TO UNRAVEL U.S.

SECURITY GOALS IN THE

REGION.

IT WANTS TO CHANGE THE

BALANCE OF POWER.

Chris: THE MAJOR

CLAIM FACING THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS HOW TO

ADDRESS THE NUCLEAR DEAL

WITH IRAN.

TRUMP SAID HE WOULD REPEAL

OR RENEGOTIATE THE

AGREEMENT ON THE CAMPAIGN

TRAIL, BUT IT REMAINS TO

BE SEEN WHAT DIRECTION HE

WILL TAKE AS PRESIDENT.

IT IS AN ITEM SURE TO BE

ON THE AGENDA WHEN TRUMP

AND PRIME MINISTER

NETANYAHU NEXT WEEK IN

WASHINGTON.

JOINING ME TO TALK MORE

ABOUT THIS IS JULIE STAAL.

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT THEY'RE

GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT?

Julie: IRAN IS SURELY

TO TOP THE AGENDA.

THE PRIME MINISTER'S

OFFICE HASN'T ISSUED ANY

KIND OF STATEMENT ABOUT

WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO TALK

ABOUT.

THE OTHER DAY, THE

MINISTER SAID HE WOULD

TALK ABOUT CYBER-SECURITY

WITH THE PRESIDENT, AND

THE PRESIDENT SAID HE IS

GOING TO MAKE THAT TOP AND

HIS AGENDA.

Chris: SETTLEMENTS?

Julie: SOAMENTS WILL

BE SETTLEMENTSWILL BE A BIG ISSUE.

THE MEDIA MADE A BIG DEAL

THAT THE WHITE HOUSE SAID

THEY'RE PROBABLY NOT

HELPFUL --

Chris: THIS NEW

SETTLEMENT --

Julie: RIGHT, NOT

HELPFUL TOWARDS ACHIEVING

PEACE.

BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS THEY

SAID IT IS NOT AN

IMPEDIMENT TO PEACE.

WHICH IS A TOTAL SHIFT FOR

DECADES IN THE WHITE HOUSE

POLICY.

Chris: IF THIS WAS

THE HILLARY CLINTON

ASSOCIATION, WE WOULD HAVE

HEARD A LOT --

Julie: OH, YEAH.

AND NOW YOU HAVE THE WHITE

HOUSE SAYING THEY'RE NOT

AN IMPEDMENT TO PEACE,

THAT'S A WHOLE BIG SHIFT.

Chris: WHAT ARE THE

PALESTINIANS SAYING?

Julie: THE

PALESTINIANS -- FIRST OF

ALL, I TALKED WITH

PALESTINIAN EXER EXPERT PINCUS

SINBARRSINBARI, AND THE

PALESTINIANS DON'T LIKE

PRESIDENT TRUMP.

AND THEY HAD A PLAN TO REV

UP THE INTIFADA, AND NOW

THEY'RE KIND OF STUCK.

SO WE ASKED THE

PALESTINIANS THINK ABOUT

HIS MEETING WITH PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

Chris: AND HERE IS

WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY.

THE MEETING BETWEEN

TRUMP AND NETANYAHU WILL

NOT FOCUS ON THAT PROBLEM,

UNLIKE OBAMA.

THEY WILL FOCUS ON IRAQ.

ON IRAQ.

SO THE PALESTINIAN ISSUE

WILL NOT BE HIGH ON THE

PRIORITY.

HOWEVER, THEY ARE VERY

MUCH AWARE THAT THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS NOT

OPPOSED TO SETTLEMENTS.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR

THE EUROPEANS.

IT IS NOT IMPORTANT AT ALL

TO THE AMERICANS.

SO HERE THEY ARE THAT MUCH

AFRAID THAT ISRA WILL

HAVE A GREEN LIGHT FROM

AMERICA TO SPREAD

SETTLEMENTS.

BUT I THINK THAT THIS WILL

NOT HAVE BEEN BECAUSE ALSO

ISRAEL IS NOT VERY MUCH

INTERESTED TO OPEN A FRONT

WITH EUROPE.

IT IS IF SO IMPORTANT WITH

EUROPE ABOUT THE

SETTLEMENTS, ISRAEL WILL

FOCUS ON BUILDING A

SETTLEMENTS BLOCK AND

INSIDE DEFENSES OF THE

EXISTING SETTLEMENTS AND

WILL NOT EXPAND.

Chris: JULIE, IT

MAKES SENSE THEY'LL BE

GOING TO EUROPE BECAUSE I

DON'T THINK THEY'LL FIND

THE KIND OF EAR THEY HAD

WITH THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

I DON'T THINK THEY FELT A

FRIENDLY VOICE THERE IN

THE WHITE HOUSE.

WHAT IS THE TAKE-AWAY FOR

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU?

Julie: THIS IS

PROBABLY LIKE THE MEETING

OF HIS DREAMS.

ALL OF THE TIME FORMER

PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS IN THE

WHITE HOUSE, THEY KEPT

SAYING THEY DON'T HAVE

GOOD CHEMISTRY.

WELL, NETANYAHU AND TRUMP

HAVE GREAT CHEMISTRY.

THEY'RE ON THE SAME PAGE.

AND THEY'RE FRIENDS.

SO FOR NETANYAHU, THIS IS

GOING TO BE A TRIP TO THE

WHITE HOUSE AND ALSO A

TRIP TO SEE A FRIEND.

THERE IS BOUND TO BE SOME

GOOD STATEMENTS COME OUT

OF IT AND A GOOD RAPPORT

DEVELOPING BETWEEN THEM.

Chris: WE'LL SEE A

WHOLE NEW RELATIONSHIP

BETWEEN TRUMP AND

NETANYAHU, THAN WHENWE

SAW WITH NETANYAHU AND

OBAMA.

Julie: A NEW ERA.

Chris: UP NEXT, COULD

ISRAEL PLAY A PART IN

UPGRADING AMERICAN

CYBER-SECURITY.

CYBER-SECURITY?

Chris: WELCOME BACK.

AS WE JUST HEARD,

CYBER-SECURITY WILL BE

PART OF NETANYAHU'S TALKS

WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP.

TRP PLANS TO UPGRADE

CYBER-SECURITY IN AMERICA,

AND ISRAEL COULD PLAY A

CENTRAL PART IN THAT PLAN.

HERE IS JULIE STAAL WITH

MORE ON THAT STORY.

Julie: ISRAEL IS ONE

OF THE MOST ADVANCED

UNTRIES IN THE WORLD IN

CYBER-SECURITY.

ISRAEL IS AT THE

CUTTING-EDGE OF

CYBER-DEFENSE.

AND WE CAN USE ALL OF THE

HELP WE CAN GET.

Julie: THIS DOCTOR,

HEAD OF THE ISRAELI

NATIONAL CYBER-DIRECTIVE,

SAID THERE ARE SEVERAL

REASONS.

ONE IS OUR NEED FOR

EMOTIONAL SECURITY.

IT IS SECURITY IN GENERAL.

THE SECOND ONE IS OUR

HEIGHTENED INDUSTRY.

AND THE THIRD ONE IS OUR

SECURITY FORCES.

Julie: HE SPOKE TO

CBN NEWS IN TEL AVIV

DURING ONE OF THE WORLD'S

LARGEST CYBER-TRADE

CONFERENCES, CYBER-TECH

2017.

MANTANA SAYS A MAJOR

CHALLENGE IS THAT

CYBER-SPACE DOESN'T HAVE

BORDERS.

WE TALK ABOUT, FOR

EXAMPLE, THE NATIONS, WE

TALK ABOUT TRANSPORTATION,

AND WE TALK ABOUT THE

BANDS.

[INAUDIBLE]

Julie: PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S ADVISOR ON

CYBER-SECURITY, RUDY

GIULANI, TOLD CBN NEWS

WE'RE NOT IN A CYBER-WAR

YET.

I DON'T THINK IT IS A

FULLY DECLARED WAR OR

COMPLETE ONGOING WAR, BUT

WE HAVE A LOT OF

CYBER-ATTACKS FOR

DIFFERENT REASONS.

AND WE HAVE A GREAT

CONCERN IN THE UNITED

STATES WITH CYBER-ATTACKS

FROM TERRORISTS, NOT JUST

FROM NATIONS.

Julie: ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU PLANS TO DISCS

CYBER-SECURITY WHEN HE

MEETS PRESIDENT TRUMP.

THE INTERNET CAN BE

HIJACKED BY NEFARIOUS

ACTORS FOR DANGEROUS

PURPOSES WITH DANGEROUS

RESULTS.

AGAIN, WHAT YOU SEE TODAY

IS GOING TO GET A LOT

WORSE IN THE FUTURE IF WE

DON'T BAND TOGETHER.

Julie: THIS

CYBER-CONSULTANT IS A

FORMER HEAD OF

INTELLIGENCE IN THE

ISELI MASAD.

HE TOLD C NEWS

INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION

MUST IMPROVE.

WE ARE ALL GETTING INTO

THE PSYCHE THAT WE NEED TO

PROTECT OURSELVES.

BEFORE 9/11, WE STILL

NEEDED THIS KIND OF WAKEUP

CALL TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE

NEED TO DO MUCH MORE TO

PROTECT THE WESTERN

CIVILIZATION.

Julie: THAT INCLUDES

THE I.O.T., THE INTERNET

OF THINGS, WHICH RANGES

FROMMART APPLIANCES TO

TELEMEDICINE AND BEYOND.

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE

OF THE HUMAN KIND WILL BE

THE I.O.T..

Julie: THIS FORMER

DIRECTOR OF ISRAELI'S

CYBER-SECURITY GAVE A

CHILLING SCENARIO OF THE

DARK SIDE OF THIS

TECHNOLOGY.

YOU'RE DRIVING YOUR

CAR, AND SUDDENLY YOU

HEAR, THIS IS JOHN, THE

TERRIBLE GUY, AND I HACKED

YOUR CAR.

AND IF YOU DON'T TRANSFER

NOW THAT KIND OF MONEY TO

MY ACCOUNT, JUS LOOK WHAT

I CAN DO.

AND THEN YOU ACCELERATE

THE CAR AND HE STOPS THE

CAR.

J: FOR NOW, THE

MISSION IS TO FIND OUT HOW

TO STOP THE BAD GUYS

BEFORE THEY CAN DISRUPT

LIFE IN THE WEST AND THE

REST OF THE WORLD.

JULIE STAAL, CBN NEWS, TEL

AVIV.

Chris: UP NEXT, SEE

HOW AN AMERICAN-JEWISH

BUSINESSMAN IS HELPING

CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY

DOCTORS SAVE LIVES IN

AFRICA'S POOREST NATION.

Chris: WELCOME BACK

TO "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

FOR OUR NEXT STORY, CBN

NEWS TRAVELLED 7,000 MILES

TO THE TINY AFRICAN NATION

OF BURUNDI.

IT IS POOR AND RECENTLY

DECLED THE MOST

UNHAPPIEST COUNTRY, BUT

NOW THERE IS HOPE AS

DOCTORS WORK TO HELP SOME

OF THE NATION'S MOST

VULNERABLE.

GEORGE THOMAS SHOWS

THEIR INSPIRING EFFORTS.

George: IT'S EASY TO

MISS ON A MAP.

ROUGHLY THE SIZE OF

MARYLAND, BURUNDI IS ONE

OF AFRICA'S SMALLEST

COUNTRIES.

IT USED TO BE THE THIRD

POOREST IN THE WORLD.

NOW IT IS NUMBER ONE.

THE AVERAGE PERSON HERE

LIVES ON LESS THAN A

DOLLAR A DAY.

George: IN 2013,

AMERICAN JASON FADER MOVED

HIS WIFE, HEATHER, AND

THEIR TWO KIDS T BURUNDI

TO SERVE AS A MISSIONARY

DOCTOR IN THIS REMOTE

VALLEY.

TYPICALLY, THE HOSPITAL

IS ABOUT THREE HOURS

OUTSIDE THE CAPITAL CITY.

BETWEEN HERE AND THERE,

THERE ARE NO SURGEONS.

THE MAJORITY, ALL ACCEPT

FOR ME, OF THE SEO IN

BURUNDI WORK IN THE

CAPITAL CITY.

George: AND FOR A

POPULATION OF 10 MILLION

PEOPLE, THERE ARE ONLY 13

SURGEONS, WITH FADER

BECOMING NUMBER 14.

AND ON A TYPICAL DAY, HOW

MANY SURGERIES ARE YOU

DOING?

I SCHEDULE ONE OR TWO,

AND YOU END UP DOING 10.

George: LIKE MNY

OTHER MISSIONARIES HERE,

HE RAISES HIS OWN SUPPORT.

IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT

TO FIND A PLACE IN THE

U.S. WHERE I COULD HAVE

EVEN THE SMIDGEON OF THE

IMPACT THAT ONE SURGEON

CAN HAVE HERE IN THE

MIDDLE OF AFRICA.

THERE ARE TWO MILLION

PEOPLE OUT TRE WHO HAVE

NO SURGEON, AND I'M HAPPY

TO BE HERE TO HELP CARE

FOR THEM.

George:ALF OF

BURUNDI HAS NO ACCESS TO

PORTABLE WATER.

SOME 70% OF THE NATION

LIVES BELOW THE POVERTY

LINE.

THERE IS NO HEALTH CARE TO

SPEAK OF.

SE AS YOU C IMAGINE,

THIS SMALL CISTI

HOSPITAL HERE IN A REMOTE

CORNER OF BURUNDI ACTS AS

A LIFELINE TO TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.

RACHEL AND ERIC, ALICE,

AND JOHN AND JESSICA

JOINED THE FADERS IN

BURUNDI MISSIONARY

DOCTORS.

JOHN CROPSI IS ONE OF ONLY

THREE OPHTLMOLOGISTS

HERE.

THE WORK WE DO IS

STRESSFUL.

YOU HAVE THE

CROSS-CULTURAL CONFLICT

GOING ON, LIMITED

RESOURCES.

DURING THE DRY SEASON, WE

COULD HAVE AS LITTLE AS

TWO HOURS AND SOMETIMES NO

POWER DURING THE DAY.

LORD GOD, I THANK YOU

FOR THE CHANCE TO BE HERE

TODAY.

I PRAY YOU WOULD BE WITH

THIS WOMAN AND HER BABY,

AND FOR A GOOD DELIVERY.

AMEN.

George: FAITH IN

CHRIST AND THE OPPORTUNITY

TO HELP THE LESS FORTUNATE

ARE JUST SOME OF THE

REASONS THAT COMPEL THESE

DOCTORS TO SERVE IN LESS

THAN IDEAL CONDITIONS.

GOD HAS CALLED US TO

THIS PLACE.

SO HE HAS CALLED US TO

HARD WORK, BUT HE HAS

CALLED US TO GOOD WORK.

AND I THINK WE CAN SEE HIS

REDEEMING STORY WHEN WE

HAVE THE EYES TO LOOK FOR

IT.

*

George: IN ADDITION

TO MEETING PHYSICAL AND

SPIRITUAL NEEDS, FADER'S

TEAM ALSO TRAINS A NEW

GENERATION TO SERVE HERE.

WE THOUGHT THE

OPPORTUNITY WAS REALLY

GREAT TO COME TO BURUNDI

TO DISCIPLE AND TRAIN

MEDICAL STUDENTS, AND

HOPEFULLY RESIDENTS IN THE

FUTURE, IN ORDER TO BE

PHYSICIANS WHO CAN CARE

COMPASSIONATELY FOR THEIR

PEOPLE AND PROVIDE HEALTH

CARE.

George: THOUSANDS OF

MILES FROM THE HOSPITAL,

ALL THE WAY IN DOWNTOWN

NEW YORK CITY, MARK

GERSEN, A JEWISH

BUSINESSMAN, HAS DECIDED

TO PERSONALLY GET INVOLVED

IN HELPING THESE CHRISTIAN

MEDICAL MISSIONARIES

CHANGE THE DESTINIES OF

SOME OF AFRICA'S POOREST.

THE BIBLE TELLS US 36

TIMES, MORE THAN IT TELLS

US ANYTHING ELSE, TO LOVE

THE STRANGER.

AND WHO IN THE WORLD IS

MORE THE STRANGER THAN THE

AFRICAN POOR IN NEED OF

MEDICAL CARE?

George: FOR SEVERAL

YEARS, GERSEN AND HIS WIFE

HAVE GIV MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS TO SUPPORT

MISSIONARY DOCTORS ACROSS

AFRICA.

IT HAS BEEN AN HONOR

AND A PRIVILEGE FOR MY

WIFE, WHO IS A RABBI, AND

I TO PARTNER WITH THESE --

AND I CHOOSE THIS TERM

CAREFULLY -- THESE SACRED

PEOPLE.

THESE MISSIONARIES GO INTO

ENVIRONMENTS THAT ARE

COMPLETING UNFORGIVING,

AND GIVE UP EVERYTHING IN

THE WEST WECONSIDER

NECESSITIES A LOT OF THE

TIME, IN ORDER TO FULFILL

THEIR RELIGIOUS OBLIGATION

TO SERVE THE POOR.

Georg GERSEN AND

DR. JOHN FIELDER, AN

AMERICAN MIDDLE MISSIONARY

SERVING IN KENYA,

CO-FOUNDED "AFRICAN

MISSION HEALTH CARE."

GERSEN SAYS HE HAS SEEN

FIRSTHAND THE DEDICATION

OF THESE MEDICAL DOCTORS.

MEDICAL MISSIONARIES

TEND TO COME FOR YEARS AND

CADES AND STAY AND LEARN

THE LANGUAGE AND LEARN THE

CULTURE AND DEVELOP DEEP

RELATIONSHIPS IN THEIR

COMMUNITY.

George: LAST MONTH

GERSEN PRESENTED THE FIRST

EVER LAHIME PRIZE FOR

OUTSTANDING MISSIONARY

SERVICE TO DR. JASON FADER

AND HIS TEAM.

WHEN I FIRST SAW THIS

PRIZE WAS FROM A JEWISH

ENTREPRENEUR, I CERTAINLY

DID A DOUBLE TAKE.

George: BUT FADER

KNEW THERE WAS MORE TO

GERSEN THAN JUST HIS

GENEROSITY.

HE SEES THE CARE FOR

THE POOR AS A MISSION, AND

I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT

FORHAT.

THE LAHIME PRIZE WILL

PROVIDE A HALF MILLION

DOLLARS TO A HOSPITAL IN

BURUNDI, WHICH WILL HELP

IT TO COMPLETE A NEW

SURGICAL BUILDING, START

AN INTERNSHIP, THE FIRST

IN THE COUNTRY FOR MEDICAL

SCHOOL GRADUATES, TO

RENOVATE A LABORATORY, AND

TO HELP ABOUT 350 PEOPLE

WALK AGAIN WITH ORTHOPEDIC

SUPPLIES.

George: GERSEN

INSISTS THERE IS NO ONE

BETTER WHO DELIVERS A

HIGHER RETURN ON

INVESTMENT THAN MEDICAL

MISSIONARIES SERVI IN

AFRICA.

AS AN EXAMPLE, HE POINTS

TO WHAT DR. FADER AND HIS

TEAM DID AT THE HOSPITAL

IN 2015.

HE ENABLED 35,000 IN

PATIENT VISITS, HE ENABLED

1200 SURGERIES, AND HE

ENABLED 800 CATARACT

SURGERIES, ALL FOR UNDER A

HALF MILLION DOLLARS.

George: HE SAYS IT

WILL CONTINUE TO TOUCH AND

HEAL THE LIVES OF

COUNTLESS PEOPLE ACROSS

THIS NATION.

IT IS AMAZING HOW MUCH

YOU CAN DO WITH SO LITTLE.

WE ARE HELPING PEOPLE

WALK.

WE ARE SAVING LIVES AT THE

RATE OF SOMETIMES

THOUSANDS PER YEAR.

George: GEORGE

OMAS, CBN NEWS, BURUNDI.

Chris: COMING UP, SEE

HOW CHRISTIANS HELP

ISRAISURING RECENT

ARSON AND WILDFIRES THAT

SWEPT THROUGH ISRAEL.

Chris: WELCOME BACK.

HUNDREDS OF HOMES WERE

LOST IN HUGE WILDFIRES

THAT SWEPT ISRAEL LATE

LAST YEAR.

CBN'S "OPERATION BLESSING"

WAS ON HAND TO HELP DURING

THAT TIME OF CSIS.

AND HERE IS A STORY OF ONE

FAMILY THEY HELPED.

Reporter: WHEN STRG

WINDS AND EXTREMELY DRY

CONDITIONS CAUSED A

WILDFIRE THAT SPREAD

ACROSS HAIFA, ISRAEL,

MILLIE KAREN DIDN'T KNOW

IF SHE AND HER FOUR

CHILDREN WOULD SURVIVE.

WE HAVE CLOTHES ON US.

FOR TWO HOURS, WE RAN

OUTSIDE AROUND THE

NEIGHBORHOOD.

Reporter: MORE THAN

70,000 PEOPLE WERE FORCED

TO EVACUATE HAIFA.

THE NEXT MORNING, I

CAME HERE AND I SAW

EVERYTHING.

AND I STARTED TO CRY.

THE WHOLE LIVING ROOM, THE

WHOLE PATIO WAS BURNED.

THE AIR CONDITIONER WAS

MELTED.

THE FURNITURE WAS MELTED.

THE WHOLE ROOM --

EVERYTHING WAS BLACK.

I CANNOT EVEN TELL YOU HOW

IT WAS SO SAD.

Reporter: JUST A FEW

HOURS AFTER THE FIRE WAS

PUT OUT, "OPERATION

BLESSING" ISRAEL WAS ON

THE GROUND IN HAIFA WITH

BLANKETS, SHOES, AND FOOD.

THAT'S WHEN "OPERATION

BLESSING" DIRECTOR YAGO

MET HER.

WE ARE HERE HELPING

THEM.

WE BROUGHT MATCHES AND

FURNITURE AND KITCHEN

SUPPLIES, EVERYTHING THEY

NEED WHILE THEY'RE RENTING

A NEW PLACE.

IT IS SMALL, BUT FOR US

IT IS VERY BIG.

BECAUSE YOU KNOW THEY'RE

THINKING ABOUT US.

A BIG, BIG THANK YOU FOR

ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO

GIVE.

I KNOW ONE DAY I WANT TO

GIVE TO YOU THE SAME

THING, TO OTHER PEOPLE.

GOD HAS SENT YOU TO ME.

Chris: THAT'S JUST

ONE EXAMPLE OF WHAT CBN

ISRAEL IS DOING TO HELP

MANY PEOPLE HERE.

DATELINE."
