WHILE HE WAS STABBING

ME, I WAS SAYING IN MY OWN

LANGUAGE, OVER AND OVER

AND OVER AGAIN, OH, LORD

JESUS.

DECADES, SHE WAS A FOSTER

MOM TO ARAB CHILDREN IN

ISRAEL, AND THEN SHE WAS

BRUTALLY ATTACKED.

OF SACRIFICE AND

FORGIVENESS.

Wendy: PLUS, IMAGES

SOLDIERS.

WE SHOW YOU HOW THIS

CHRISTIAN PHOTOGRAPHER

HONORS THEIR SACRIFICE.

George: AND THE WALL

THAT IS MEANT TO BRING

PEOPLE TOGETHER AND REMIND

THEM OF GOD'S GOODNESS.

George: HELLO,

EVERYBODY.

WELCOME TO THIS WEEK'S

EDITION OF "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS."

I'M GEORGE THOMAS.

Wendy: AND I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

MARIKA IS A DUTCH

CHRISTIAN LIVING IN

ISRAEL, WHO WAS A FOSTER

MOTHER TO ARAB CHILDREN

FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS.

LAST YEAR, DURING A WAVE

OF TERRORISM, PALESTINIANS

NEARLY KILLED HER IN A

SAVAGE ATTACK ON A BUS IN

JERUSALEM.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

THE REMARKABLE STORY OF

WHAT SAVED HER LIFE AND

HOW SHE RESPONDED TO THE

MEN WHO ATTACKED HER.

Chris: MARRIKA

ZELDMAN LEFT HOLLANDE FOR

JERUSALEM ALMOST 40 YEARS

AGO WITH A GO: BECOME A

FOSTER MOM TO ARAB

CHILDREN.

I HAD MONEY.

I HAD NOTHING.

I D ONLY GOD'S PROMISE

FROM PSALM 10, TO TAKE

CARE OF THE ORPHANS.

AND THIS IS HOW I STARTED

MY HOME, IN FAITH.

I JUST RENTED A HOUSE, AND

I DECORATED IT.

AND THEN AFTER THAT, ALL

THE CHILDREN CAME.

THIS WAS OVER A TIME OF 32

YEARS I WAS A FOSTER

MOTHER.

AND IAD ABOUT 20

CHILDREN, LIVING, NOT ALL

TOGETHER IN ONE TIME, BUT

OVER ALL THESE YEARS,

ABOUT 20 CHILDREN CAME TO

MY HOME, AND THEY STAYED

FOR LONGER OR SHORTER

TIME.

Chris: THEN ONE DAY

HER LIFE SUDDENLY CHANGED

WHEN TWO MEN BOARDED THE

BUS SHE WAS RIDING.

THE BUS SHE WAS RIDING

STOPPED AT THIS CORNER.

TWO PALESTINIANS FROM A

NEARBY JERUSALE

NEIGHBORHOOD BOARDED BUS

NUMBER 78 AND BEGAN TO

STAB AND SHOOT PASSENGERS.

THREE ISRAELIS DIED AS A

RESULT OF TH ATTACK.

THEY LOOKED SO

SUSPICIOUS, THAT I

THOUGHT, WHY DID THE BUS

DRIVER LET THEM IN.

AFTER THAT, THEY STARTED

SCREAMING, AND THE TWO

WERE TERRORISTS.

AND ONE HAD A GUN AND THE

OTHER A KNIFE.

THE MAN WITH THENIFE

JUMPED ON ME, AND THEN HE

STARTED STABBING ME IN MY

SHOULDER, AND ALSO IN MY

CHEST AND MY HANDS.

AND THE OTHER ONE WENT TO

THE BACK OF THE BUS AND

STARTED SHOOTING.

PEOPLE STARTEDCREAMING,

OF COURSE.

BUT WHILE HE WAS STABBING

ME, I WAS SAYING IN MY OWN

LANGUAGE, OVER AND OVER

AND OVER AGAIN, OH, LORD

JESUS.

I WOULD SAY IT IN DUTCH.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

AND I WAS PROTECTING

MYSELF WITH MY HANDS, LIKE

THIS.

AND I WAS, LIKE, VERY

QUIET.

I KEPT VERY QUIET, SITTING

IN THE CORNER.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN HE

STOPPED.

AND HE WEN T THE BACK OF

THE BUS TO CONTINUE WITH

STABBI OTH PEOPLE.

ALL OF A SUDDEN I HEARD A

NOISE, AND ALL OF E

GLASS WAS BROKEN AND THE

DOOR WAS JUST OPEN SO I

COULD GET OUT.

ReporterT.

Chris: SHETULED

OUT THE BUSLEEDING AND IN SHOCK.

STILL, SHE MANAGED TO WAVE

DOWN A DRIVER WHO GOT HER

TO THE HOSPITAL.

SHE HAD SIX STAB WOUNDS

AND A COLLAPSED LUNG.

MANY OF HER FORMER FOSTER

CHILDREN CAME TO SEE HER

IN THE HOSPITAL, BUT THEY

DIDN'T WANT TO BE

INTERVIEWED ON CAMERA.

ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS

MY CHILDREN ASKED ME,

MAMA, DO YOU HATE US NOW

AND DO YOU HATE THE ARABS?

BECAUSE MY CHILDREN ARE

ARABIC.

ACTUALLY, I WAS -- HOW

SHALL I EXPRESS MYSELF --

I W FLABBERGASTED THEY

WOULD ASK ME THESE

QUESTIONS.

I SAID, NO, CHILDREN.

HOW CAN YOU ASK ME THESE

KINDS OF QUESTIONS.

OF COURSE I DON'T HATE

THEM.

Chris: SHE WENT

FURTHER AND FORGAVE THE

MAN WHO STABBED HER.

HER CHILDREN TOLD HER THAT

DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

IT DOESN'T MAKE MUCH

SENSE TO FORGIVE A PERSON

LIKE THAT.

BUT THEN I THOUGHT,

ACTUALLY, THE LORD, OUR

FATHER IN HEAVEN, HE

FORGAVE US THROUGH THE

LORD JESUS.

AND FORGIVING IS ALSO --

IT'S A CHOICE.

I WANT TO MAKE THE CHOICE

TO FORGIVE.

AND ONCE YOU MAKE THE

CHOICE, THEN GOD COMES TO

HELP YOU.

THAT IS HIS GRACE.

THE WHOLE HORRIBLE THING,

IT BROUGHT ME CLOSER TO

THE LORD.

HE HAS PROVEN HIMSELF A

WONDERFUL GOD.

WE ARE SERVING A WONDERFUL

GOD.

HE IS SO GOOD.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Wendy: FORGIVENESS IS

A CHOICE -- WOW, THOSE ARE

WORDS TO LIVE BY.

WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR

THOUGHTS ON MARRIKA'S

DECISION TO FORGIVE.

AND ASK THE QUESTION: HOW

WOULD YOU HAVE RESPONDED

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WERE

ATTACKED?

LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS AND

PRAYERS ON OUR "CHRISTIA

WORLD NEWS" Facebook

PAGE.

George: THAT STABBING

WAS PART OF A WAVE OF

MUSLIM ATTACKS ON ISRAELI

CITIZENS LAST YEAR.

MUCH OF THE UNREST IS

CENTERED ON THIS ONE

QUESTION: WHO SHOULD

CONTROL THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

WE GO BACK TO CHRIS

MITCHELL FOR AN INDEPTH

LOOK AT THAT ANSWER.

Chris: MUSLIMS CALL

IT HARAM al-SHARIF, THE

NOBLE SANCTUARY IN ARABIC.

AL-AQSA IS THE THIRD

HOLIEST SITE IN ISLAM.

MUSLIMS CLAIM ONLYHEY

ARE ALLOWED TO PRAY THERE.

MUSLIMS HA TOPR

THERE, BUT OTHERS,

CHRISTIANS AND JEWS, THEY

CAN VISIT, JUST VISIT, NOT

TO PRAY INSIDE.

Chris: FOR JEWS, THE

TEMPLE MOUNT IS THE MOST

SACR PLACE.

TWO JEWISH TEMPLES STOOD

HERE DURING BIBLE TIMES.

JESUS VISITED, PREACHED,

AND WORSHIPPED AT THE

SECOND TELE, AND YET

MUSLIMS DENY IT EVER

EXISTED.

ARCHEOLOGY BACKS UP THE

BIBLE, WHICH SAYS IT IS

OUR HOLIEST PLACE.

IT IS THE CENTER.

FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE

JEWISH PEOPLE, MANYHINK

FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE

WORLD, IT'S THE CENTER.

Chris: FOR YEARS

RABBIS SAID IT WAS

FORBIDDEN FOR JEWS EVEN TO

PRAY THERE BECAUSE IT WAS

TOO HOLY.

NOW MORE AND MORE

RELIGIOUS AND

NON-RELIGIOUS JEWS WNT

THR RIGHTS TO THIS MOST

HOLY PLACE.

BECAUSE WE WANT FREEDOM

FOR EVERYBODY TO PRAY ON

THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

ISAIAH SAYS IT WILL BE A

PLACE FOR ALL NATIONS.

Chris: TWO WEEKS AGO,

A PALESTINIAN TERRORIST

ATTEMPTED TO ASSASSINATE

THE LEADER.

CLICKE SURVIVED, AND

ISRAELI SECURITY LATER

SHOT AND KILLED THE

GUNMAN.

THIS INCIDENT, ALONG WITH

CONSTANT RALLYING,

HIGHLIGHT THE GROWING

TENSIONS OVER THE TEMPLE

MOUNT.

WE AS A GOVERNMENT ARE

AGAINST JEWISH PRAYERS AT

THE TEMPLE MOUNT, SIMPLY

BECAUSE OF OUR COMMITMENT

THAT WAS AGREED UPONIN

1967.

Chris: SINCE THE 1967

SIX-DAY WAR, JORDAN HAS

KEPT RELIGIOUS CONTROL

OVER THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

ISRAEL MAINTAINS SECURITY,

AND ONLY MUSLIMS N PRAY

THERE.

DUE TO THE CURRENT TENSION

OVER THE MOUNT, JORDAN

RECALLED ITS AMBASSADOR

LAST WEEK FROM ISRAEL.

YOSI IS THE DIRECTOR

NERAL OF THE STRATEGIC

AFFAIRS MINISTRY.

WE BELIEVE THAT BY

COMMITTING OURSELVES TO

THAT, WE HELP KEEP THE

PEACE AND SECURITY IN

JERUSALEM.

Chris: BUT OMER SAYS

IT IS ALL ABOUT CIVIL

RIGHTS.

THE ONLY PLACE I KNOW,

CERTAINLY IN ISRAEL, WHERE

THERE IS A REAL VIOLATION

OF CIVIL RIGHTS AS WE HAVE

COME TO EXPECT THEM I THE

WESTERN WORLD, IN FREE

DEMOCRATIC COUNTRIES, IS

AGAINST JEWS ON THE TEMPLE

MOUNT.

Chris: AND SHE SAYS

THERE IS PLENTY OF ROOM

FOR EVERYONE.

AND I BELIEVE WHEN THE

MESSIAH COMES, HE'LL SOLVE

ALL OF THE PROBLEMS.

UNTIL THEN, I BELIEVE THAT

THERE IS A PLACE FOR ALL

NATIONS ON THE TEMPLE

MOUNT.

Chris: CRIS CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

George: COMING UP, A

GALLERY OF FAITH.

WE TAKE YOU TO A SHOP THAT

DISPLAYS IMAGES OF CHINA'S

SOLDIERS OF THE CROSS.

MAR RICA

George: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "CHRISTIAN WORLD

NEWS."

CHINA IS A COMMUNIST

NATION, BUT IT HAS A RICH

CHRIIAN HISTORY.

IN FACT, FOR DECADES

PAORS AND EVANGELISTS

LABORED IN O OBSCURITY, AND

IN MANY CASES, UNDER

THREAT OF PRISON FOR

WORSE.

Wendy: WE, NOW ONE

PHOTOGRAPHER IS DISPLAYING

HUNDREDS OF IMAGES OF

THESE UNKNOWN SAINTS.

AS MUNG FE LI TELLS US,

THE STRENGTH OF CHINA'S

CHURCH IS JUST ONE REASON

MANY MILLENNIALS ARE

MOVING THERE.

Reporter: FROM THE

BREAK OF THE DAWN UNTIL

LATE NIGHT, WITH THE

EXCITEMENT AND NOISES,

BEIJING, THE CAPITAL OF

CHINA, NEVER SLEEPS.

AT EACH STREET CORNER, THE

SOUND OF BUSINESS IS

GETTING LOUDER.

IN THE MIDST OF ALL OF THE

NOISE, PEOPLE FIND A QUIET

PLACE, A UNIQUE PHOTO

GALLERY WITH TOUCHING

STORIES.

CHRISTIAN PHOTOGRAPHER

PONG RUNG SAYS PEOPLE IN

THESE PICTURES ARE

SPECIAL.

THESE WERE SOLDIERS FOR

JESUS CHRIST.

THEY SPENT THEIR WHOLE

LIVES SPREADING THE TRUTH

FOR JESUS.

Reporter: THESE

CHRISTIANS ARE FROM

VARIOUS CHINESECIES,

LUJUNG IS ONE OF THEM.

IT IS ONE OF THE SMALLEST

CITIES IN EASTERN CHINA.

FEW PEOPLE HAVE A REASON

TO COMEERE.

PONG RUNG WANTED TO COME

HERE TO TAKE PHOTOS OF

DEDICATED CHRISTIAN

EVANGELISTS.

SOME OF THEM NEVER HAD

THEPPORTUNITY TO PREACH

IN CRCH.

THEY HAD BIBLES WITH THEM

EVERYWHERE THEY WENT.

THEY SAID THEY HAD THE

MOST USEFUL TOOL, THE

BIBLE.

THEY DIDN'T NEED A

BUILDING.

Reporter: PUNG'S

ENTIRE GALLERY IS FULL OF

IMAGES FROM A RECENT TRIP.

AS A CHRISTIAN, PUNG WAS

INSPIRED BY THE STORIES HE

HEARD.

HE SAID THE HIGHLIGHT OF

THE JOURNEYAS THE HOPE

THESE CHINESE MISSIONARIES

SHARED ABOUT THE FUTURE.

A FEW OF THEM ARE CLOSE

TO 100 YEARS OLD.

THEY PRAY FOR THIS NATION,

TRUSTING THAT CHINA WILL

SOON BECOME THE LARGEST

CHRISTIAN NATION.

PRAYERS CAN MOVE

MOUNTAINS.

AS I VIEWED EACH IMAGE,

I WAS SO MOVED BY THE

STORIES I READ.

I COMPARED MY FAITH WITH

THESE OLDER CHRISTIAN

BELIEVERS.

I KNOW I STILL HAVE A LONG

WAY TO GO ON MY FAITH

JOURNEY.

I HOPE SOME DAY I CAN MEET

SOME OF THEM IN PERSON.

Reporter: STORIES

LIKE THESE HAVE MOTIVATED

SOME AMERICAN MILLENNIALS

TO MOVE TO CHINA, TO LEARN

THE LANGUAGE AND ITS

CULTURE.

THEY ARE BEING PREPARED TO

SERVE THE PEOPLE OF CHINA.

KENNETH KING WAS BORN AND

RAISED IN NORFOLK,

VIRGINIA.

ATHE AGE OF 23, INSTEAD

OF SEEKING EMPLOYMENT IN

THE UNITED STATES, HE

DECIDED TO MAKE A CHANGE.

IT IS REALLY

INTERESTING TO ME BECAUSE

IT IS SO FOREIGN.

IT IS VERY DIFFERENT FROM

ANY WESTERN LANGUAGE,

GERMAN, ENGLISH, SPANISH,

FRENCH, WHATEVER.

ALSO BECAUSE CHINA HAS A

VERY RICH HISTORY TO IT,

AND ITS CULTURES ARE VERY

DIFFERENT FROM AMERICAN

CULTURE AS WELL.

THOSE ARE ALL REALLY

ATTRACTIVE TO ME BECAUSE

THEY'RE SO DIFFERENT.

Reporter: KENNETH IS

A CHRISTIAN, CALLED BY GOD

TO MOVE TOHINA.

HIS PARENTS WERE EXCITED

ABOUT HIS MOVE.

THEY KNEW GOD COULD USE

THEIR SON IN A BIG WAY.

BESIDES GOING TO SCHOOL IN

CHINA, HE ALSO FELL IN

LOVE WITH THE LOCAL

CULTURE.

HE MAKES TRIPS AROUND

CHINA, TALKING TO THE

LOCALS.

HE BELIEVES MORE AMERICAN

MILLENNIALS WILL BE

MOTIVATED TO TRAVEL

OVERSEAS FOR BIGGER

OPPORTUNITIES.

MORE MILLENNIALS

WANTING TO GET A BIGGER

HEAD START IN THE

BEGINNING, PLUS HAVING THE

OPTION TO TRAVEL AND WORK

ABROAD.

MOST PEOPLE WILL TAKE A

JOB THAT LET'S THEM TRAVEL

A LITTLE BIT, PARTICULARLY

WH THEY'RE YOUNG, WHEN

THEY'RE MY AGE, AND

GETTING TO LIVE OUTSIDE

THE UNITED STATES IS

CAUSING A LOT OF

MILLENNIALS TO COME TO

CHINA OR OTHER COUNTRIES.

Reporter: CHINESE

CHRISTIANS HAVE HELPED KEN

FIND PART-TIME WORK AND

IMPROVE HIS CHINESE

LANGUAGE SKILLS.

HE SAYS IN THE LONG RUN HE

WOULD LOVE TO SPEAK BETTER

CHINESE AND JOIN A LOCAL

CHINESE CHURCH.

KEN HOPES GOVERNMENT

LEADERS OPEN THEIR EYES TO

JESUS CHRIST THIS YEAR.

AND HE IS ENCOURAGING MORE

YOUNG AMERICAN CHRISTIANS

TO FOLLOW HIS LEAD TO

CHGE CHINESE LIVES AND

THEI OWN.

MUNG FE LI, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: UP NEXT, BOB

GOFF IS AN AUTHOR,

SPEAKER, AND PROFESSIONAL

ENCOURAGER.

ANHE WANTS TO HELP YOU

GET BACK TO BUILDING THE

ROCKETSHIP THAT WAS

SUPPOSED TO BE YOUR LIFE.

THE ONE-ON-ONE WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

BOB GOFF IS AN AUTHOR,

SPEAKER, AND PROFESSIONAL

ENCOURAGER.

George: THAT'S

AWESOME.

Wendy: A FEW YEARS

AGO, HE WROTE A BOOK

CALLED "LOVE DOES:

DISCOVER AN SECRETLY

INCREDIBLE LIFE IN AN

ORDINARY WORLD."

George: RECENTLY BOB

SAT DOWN WITH JUAN GARCIA,

FOR MORE ABOUT LIVING THAT

INCREDIBLE LIFE THAT GOD

HAS CALLED US TO.

Reporter: BOB GOFF,

WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF

LOVE AND HOW CAN WE DO IT

BETTER?

I DON'T KNOW A

DICTIONARY ONE, BUT I

REMEMBER WHEN MY DAUGHTER

WAS STARTING TO DATE

PEOPLE, THINKING IF A GUY

ASKS YOU OUT ON A DATE --

THIS WOULD BE GREAT ADVICE

FOR SOME OF YOUR

LISTENERS -- JUST ASK

THEM, WHAT IS YOUR

DEFINITION OF LOVE?

BECAUSE HE IS A GUY, HE

WON'T KNOW.

SEND HIM HOME.

AND SAY, WHEN YOU KNOW

WHAT LOVE IS, THEN ASK ME

WHAON A DATE.

IF YOU SAY IT IS LIKE

BUTTERFLIES, YOU CAN GET

THAT FROM BAD PIZZA.

SACRIFICE AND COMMITMENT,

THAT WOULD BE A SIMPLE,

EASY WAY TO DESCRIBE WHAT

JESUS SAID.

THAT'S WHAT THE MOST

MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS I

HAVE HAD, ARE SACRIFICE

AND COMMITMENT.

IF IT IS JUST MARKED BY

FUN, YOU CAN GET AN IRISH

SETTER AND HAVE A LOT OF

FUN.

BUT IF YOU'RE GOING TO

HAVE SOMEONE YOU DO LIFE

WITH, SACRIFICE AND BE

COITTED.

Reporter: WHAT

CHANGED EVERYTHING IN YOUR

LIFE THAT GAVE YOU THIS

WORLD VIEW.

WHAT IS BOB GOFF'S ORIGIN

STORY?

DID YOU FALL IN A VAT OF

RADIOACTIVE LOVE?

WELL, I WAS NO SUPER

HERO, BUT DEFINITELY

ACTION FIGURE, RIGHT?

Reporter: YEAH.

THAT IDEA TO SAY WHO

HAS GOD CREATED YOU AND I

TO BE?

AND I THINK WE WERE MADE

TO BE LOVE.

I KNOW THAT SOUNDS LIKE

SOMETHING THAT HALLMARK

WOULD RIP THAT OFF AND SAY

E MUSH STUFF.

BUT ACTUALLY TURNING INTO

LOVE IS WHAT I SEE

SCRIPTURES TALKING ABOUT.

YOU DON'T TURN INTO LOVE

BY SENDING PEOPLE A BUNCH

OF PETUNIAS.

YOU TURN INTO LOVE BY

FINDING HUNGRY PEOPLE,

SICK PEOPLE -- I THINK

THAT'S WHY JESUS DID THAT,

I THINK.

WHOLE LIFE I AVOIDED

PEOPLE THAT CREEP ME OUT

BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO

GET ANY ON ME.

I THINK THE SIMPLE MESSAGE

OF THE GOSPEL IS TO GET IT

ON YOU.

PEOPLE WHO TURN INTO LOV

GET IT ON THEM.

THEY'RE NOT AIMING FOR

BEING MISUNDERSTOOD, BUT

IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN

ALONG THE LINE.

IT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU.

IT DOESN'T MAKE YOU A

VICTIM.

AND YOU'LL SCREW UP ALONG

THE WAY.

PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO

LOVE WELL DO OFTEN,

BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST

TRYING TO WORK IT OUT.

BUT IT IS WORTH THE

ENDEAVOR.

Reporter: IN A

PRACTICAL WAY, WHAT ARE

SOME OF THE THINGS YOU DO

ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS.

DO YOU SNEAK OUT INTO THE

GARDEN AND GET A ROSE

EVERY DAY TO GIVE YOUR

WIFE?

I DO.

AND IT'S ALL ABOUT WHERE

YOU START.

WHAT IF YOU, JUST SAY,

TAKE COMMON IDEAS, NOT TO

DRAW ANY ATTENTION TO YOU,

BUT TO DRAW ATTENTION TO

YOUR BELOVED?

DO YOU JUST DO THOSE KINDS

OF THINGS?

THAT IS REALLY I A SIMPLE

WAY WHAT GOD IS DOING FOR

US AND WE CAN DO FOR EACH

OTHER.

NOT FINDING EASY PEOPLE TO

LOVE BUT FIND PEOPLE WHO

IT IS A LITTLE MORE

DIFFICULT.

AND SAY, OH, MY GOSH.

AND SO WHILE I'M A REALLY

LOVING GUY -- I THINK I AM

ENDEAVORING TO BE -- I

ALSO THINK THAT GOD LOVES

JUSTICE.

SO THERE IS JUSTICE TO

THAT.

WE TRY CASES, PEOPLE WHO

DO BAD THINGS TO KIDS.

BUT WE HAVE A COURT

SYSTEM, AND OTHER

COUNTRIES HAVE COURT

SYSTEMS, AND WE JUST USE

THEM.

Reporter: THAT IS ONE

OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES OF

YOU.

YOU SAY WHEN YOU LOVE

PEEPLE, THAT'S LIKE WHEN

JESUS IS IN THE MANGER.

WE ARE LOVE TO PEOPLE

WE MEET ALONG THE WAY.

WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT WHAT

YOUR BIG AMBITIONS ARE.

IF YOUR BIG AMBITION IS --

WELL, JUST FIGURE IT WHAT

IT IS.

SAY IT'S, I WANT TO SAVE

SOMEBODY'S LIFE -- IF YOU

STAND ON A CORNER WITH

YOUR HOODIE AND TALK ABOUT

IT A LOT, YOU'LL GET TO

HEAVEN AND YOU'L THEY'LL BE,

LIKE, I HEARD ALL ABOUT

IT.

BUT YOU CAN BE SECRETLY

INCREDIBLE.

DON'T DO IT FOR ME.

JUST DO IT.

GEZ HAGERSVILLE

George: HERE IN

AMERICA, THERE HAS BEEN A

LOT OF TALK ABOUT DONALD

TRUMP'S BORDER WALL WITH

MEXICO.

Wendy: A CHRISTIAN

LEADER IN THE UNITED

KINGDOM BELIEVES GOD HAS

CALLED HIM TO BUILD A

DIFFERENT KIND OF WALL.

PETER WOODING HAS THAT

STORY FROM LONDON.

OVER THE PAST YEAR,

RICHARD GAME HAS BEEN

WORKING WITH A TEAM OF

EXPERTS TO FULFILL A

GOD-GIVEN VISION TO BUILD

A WALL ON THE SIDE OF A

FREEWAY.

ONE OF THE KEY PARTNERS

INVOLVED IS CBN EUROPE,

EXPLAINING THE STORY OF

WHAT INSPIRED GAMBLE TO

TAKE ON THIS FAITH

VENTURE.

THE WALL WILL BE A

PIECE OF ARCHITECTURE THAT

WILL BECOME A NATIONAL

ICON, DEMONSATING TO THE

WORLD THAT JESUS ANSWERS

PRAYERS.

GOD GAVE ME THE VISION

ABOUT 13 YEARS AGO FOR THE

WALL OF ANSWERED PRAYER.

I FELT HIM TELL ME TO

CARRY A CROSS AROUND.

WHICH I KNOW SOUNDS A BIT

DIFFERENT.

BUT I DID THAT BECAUSE I

JUST WANTED PEOPLE TO

THINK ABOUT JESUS DURING

EASTER.

AND ABOUT 250,000 PEOPLE

SAW THAT.

AND I WAS GOING AROUND, I

JUST FELT THAT GOD WAS

DOING SOMETHING.

AND I ASKED HIM WHAT DID

HE WANT ME TO DO NEXT?

AND HE GAVE ME THIS IDEA

OF BUILDING A WALL OF A

MILLION BRICKS, WITH EVERY

SINGLE BRICK REPRESENTING

AN ANSWERED PRAYER.

IT CAME A STEP CLOSER TO

BECOMING A REALITY THIS

WEEK WHEN PARLIAMENT

UNVEILED A LIST OF FIVE

DESIGNS.

134 ENTRIES FROM 24

COUNTRIES WERE RECEIVED.

THE ENTRIES WERE WHITTLE

DOWN TO FOUR.

THE HOST OF THE RECEPTION

WAS A MEMBER OF THE

JUDGING PANEL, AND CHAIR

OF THE A.P. P. FOR FAITH

AND SOCIETY.

I HOPE IT IS GOING TO

SECURE A REALLY FIRM PLACE

IN BRITAIN'S NATIONAL

CONSCIENCENESS, JUST LIKE

GREAT CHURCHES AND

CATHEDRALS HAVE DONE IN

THE PAST.

Reporter: THE LEADERS

THAT ATTENDED THE

RECEPTION WERE VERY

EXCITED ABOUT HAVING THIS

KIND OF CHRISTIAN LANDMARK

IN THE U.K.

AS A NATION, WE'RE

QUITE SHY ABOUT PUTTING

OUR FAITH IN A VERY PUBLIC

PLACE.

I THINK AS A POLITICIAN,

WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO SAY

THAT PRAYER IS ABSOLUTELY

IMPORTANT TO CHRISTIANS.

WHAT REALLY EXCITED ME

ABOUT IT, WAS THIS IDEA OF

CHRISTIANS FROM ALL OVER

THE NATION COMING

TOGETHER, RAISING UP A

MONUMENT, RAISING UP A

TESTIMONY TO OUR NATION.

Reporter: SO WHAT

IMPACT DOES GAMBLE HOPE

THIS WALL WILL HAVE ON

FUTURE GENERATIONS IN THIS

COUNTRY?

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

SOMETHING THAT IS GOING TO

LAST FOR 100, MAYBE 200,

YEARS.

YOU START TOTHINK OF

MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE WHO WILL BE

IMPACTED.

AND I THINK IT IS A GREAT

OPPORTITY FOR THIS

GENERATION TOHARE WHAT

JESUS HAS DONE IN THEIR

LIVES, WHICH WILL LEAVE A

LEGACY FOR THE GENERATIONS

TO COME.

Reporter: SO IT IS

HOPED THAT BRICK BY BRICK

THIS WALL WILL ACT AS A

CATALYST FOR TURNING THIS

NATION BACK TO THE POWER

OF ANSWERED PRAYER.

IN OTHER WORDS, IF THEY

BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME

TO GOD.

PETER WOODING, CBN NEWS,

LONDON, ENGLD.

George: INTERESTING

IDEA.

Wendy: GOOD TO SEE

OUR FRIEND, PETERED

WOODING.

George: THAT'S IT FOR
