> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

ATTORNEY-GENERAL JEFF

SESSIONS IS UNDER FIRE,

FACING ACCUSATIONS HE MET

WITH RUSSIAN OFFICIALS

DURING THE PRESIDENTIAL

CAMPAIGN.

SESSIONS DENIED THOSE

CLAIMS UNDER OATH IN

CONFIRMATION HEARINGS.

BUT YESTERDAY THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT REPORTED HE HAD

CONTACT WITH RUSSIA TWICE

DURING THE CAMPAIGN.

THE "WASHINGTON POST" WAS

THE FIRST TO REPORT THIS

INFORMATION.

SESSIONS IS FIRING BACK.

HE RELEASED A STATEMENT

LAST NIGHT SAYING, "I

NEVER MET WITH ANY RUSSIAN

OFFICIALS TO DISCUSS THE

CAMPAIGN.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE

ALLEGATIONS ARE ABOUT.

IT IS IN FAULT."

SOME MEMBERS OF HIS PARTY

SAY HE MAY NEED TO RECUSE

HIMSELF.

THERE IS SOMETHING

THERE, THAT THE F.B.I.

BELIEVES IS CRIMINAL IN

NATURE, THEN FOR SURE YOU

NEED A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR.

IF THAT DAY EVER COMES, I

WILL BE THE FIRST ONE TO

SAY IT NEEDSO BE

SOMEBODY OTHER THAN JEFF.

Efrem: SOME HOUSE

MEMBERS ARE CALLING FOR

SESSIONS TO RESIGN.

WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS

CALLED THE NEW REPORTS

JUST THE LATEST PARTISAN

ATTACK.

> IN THE AFTERMATH OF

THIS HIGHLY ACCLAIMED

SPEECH BEFORE THE JOINT

SESSION OF CONGRESS, IT IS

NOW TIME FOR THE PRESIDENT

AND LAWMAKERS TO GET DOWN

TO BUSINESS.

GARY LANE HAS DETAILS ON

THE PRESIDENT'S AGENDA TO

JUMP-START THE AGENDA.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT WAS ALREADY

WORKING ON HIS AGENDA JUST

HOURS AFTER HIS FIRST

SPEECH TO A JOINT SESSION

OF CONGRESS.

MEETING WITH REPUBLICAN

LEADERS AT THE WHITE

HOUSE, WHERE THEY SCRATCH

GIZED OSTRATEGIZED ON THEIR

PROCESS.

President Trump: WE

THINK WE'RE GOING TO HAVE

TREMENDOUS SUCCESS.

Reporter: THEIR TOP

GOALS: WORKING ON

REPEALING AND REPLACING

OBCAR AND CUTTING TAXES.

AFTER THE SPEECH, THE DOW

SURGED TO ANOTHER RECORD

HIGH, GOING OVER 21,000

FOR THE FIRST TIME.

HE NOW OWNS THIS

ECONOMY.

HE OWNS THE PRESIDENCY.

THAT SPEECH PUT HIM OVER

THE TOP.

Reporter: THE STOCK

MARKET HAS JUMPED WELL

OVER 15% SINCE THE

NOVEMBER ELECTION.

AND INVESTORS EXPECT IT TO

KEEP GOING HIGHER.

I WOULD SAY IT IS

60/40.

60 TRUMP SINCE THE

ELECTION, AND 40 EARNINGS,

JOBS, NUMBERS, WHICH HAVE

BEEN A LITTLE STRONGER.

OVER ALL, THINGS ARE

GETTING BETTER.

THEY'RE TRENDING IN THE

RIGHT DIRECTION.

Reporter: TRUMP HAS

SOME OTHER PLANS TO BOOST

OF AMERICAN ECONOMY.

HE WANTS TO INVEST A

TRILLION DOLLARS TO

IMPROVE THE NATION'S

INFRASTRUCTURE, LIKE ROADS

AND BRIDGES, AND

$54 BILLION ON DEFENSE.

BUT SOME ARE WONDERING

WHERE THE MONEY ARE COMING

FROM.

BUT THE PRESIDENT BELIEVES

HE'LL COVER THE COSTS BY

CREATING THE RIGHT

CONDITIONS FOR THE ECONOMY

TO FINALLY START GROWING

AT A FASTER RATE AGAIN.

A STRONGER ECONOMY MEANS

STRONGER EARNINGS FOR

BUSINESSES, AND HIGHER

INCOMES FOR INDIVIDUALS,

AND MORE MONEY AND TAXES

GOING TO WASHINGTON.

SINCE 1947, THE ECONOMY

HAS GROWN ON AVERAGE A

LITTLE OVER 3% A YEAR.

BUT UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA,

THE ECONOMY ONLY GROW AT

2%.

AND PRESIDENT OBAMA BECAME

THE FIRST PRESIDENT IN

MODERN HISTORY TO NOT HAVE

EVEN A SINGLE YEAR OF 3%

GROWTH.

PRESIDENT TRUMP BELIEVES

HE CAN TURN THAT AROUND,

AND TAX CUTS FOR

BUSINESSES AND CONSUMERS

IS A KEY PART OF THE PLAN.

YOU GET TAX CUTS,

PEOPLE GET MORE MONEY IN

THEIR POCKET, AND THEY GO

OUT AND SPEND IT.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE WANTS TO GET

OBAMACARE AND TAX REFORM

DONE BY THE END OF THIS

YEAR.

BUT POLITICAL ANALYSTS

REMAIN SKEPTICAL.

BEFORE ANY OF THIS CAN

HAPPEN, DONALD TRUMP, THE

MAN WHO MASTERED THE ART

OF THE DEAL, WILL NEED TO

WORK DEALS WITH MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS IN ORDER TO GET

HIS AMBITIOUS AGENDA

ACCOMPLISHED IN 2017.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: I WANT TO TURN

NOW TO THE MIDDLE EAST

WHERE CHRISTIANS ARE STILL

FLEEING PERSECUTION FROM

THE NORTHERN REGION OF THE

SINAI REGION.

CONTINUED ATTACKS FROM THE

ISLAMIC STATE HAVE MANY

WONDERING IF THE

GOVERNMENT IS DOING ENOUGH

TO PROTECT THEM.

AN EVANGELICAL CHURCH IN

EGYPT IS STEPPING IN TO

HELP.

THEY HAVE SEEN MORE THAN

500 PEOPLE PASS THROUGH

THE CHURCH.

THEY ARE HANDING OUT FOOD,

WATER, AND OTHER SUPPLIES.

THE CHURCH IS ALSO HELPING

TO HOUSE CHRISTIANS IN

PRIVATE HOMES IN AND

AROUND THE CITY.

> THE NEW CHRISTIAN

SATELLITE CHANNEL SAT 7

HAS ANNOUNCED A PLAN TO

HAVE A SERIES FOR

REFUGEES.

ABOUT HALF OF THE REFUGEES

ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 12.

THE WAR HAS COST THEM

SCHOOLS AND EDUCATION.

IT WILL TEACH CHILDREN

SUBJECTS LIKE MATH,

SCIENCE, ARABIC AND

ENGLISH.

THE C.E.O. SAYS THE

CHANNEL WILL ALSO TEACH

CHANNEL VALUES.

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

THE BIBLE OR JESUS, BUT WE

WANT TO REACH EVERYBODY.

WE ARE TAKING THEM VALUES,

HUMAN VALUES, THAT WE

ASPIRE TO HAVE IN THE

MIDDLE EAST, LIKE

ACCEPTING THE OTHERS, EVEN

IF THE OTHERS ARE

DIFFERENT.

WE CANNOT TAKE THE PLACE

OF THE SCHOOLS.

WE ARE LIKE KIND OF

HELPING IN ORDER TO HAVE A

NEUTRALIZATION OF LEADERS.

Efrem: YOU CAN HEAR

MORE AT SAT 7 AT GARY

LANE'S BLOG, THE GLOBAL

LANE AT cbnnews.com.

> VID ANGEL, THE

STREAMING SERVICE THAT

PROVIDES USERS WITH MOVIES

FILTERED FOR EXPLICIT

CONTENT WILL RELEASE ITS

FIRST MOVIE THIS WEEKEND.

IT WILL RELEASE THE

TIMMINSMERMAN'S HOPE FOR

AMERICA.

THE RELEASE COMES IN THE

MIDST OF A HEATED LEGAL

SHOWDOWN WITH DISNEY AND

OTHER HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS.

THE STUDIOS FILED A

LAWSUIT AGAINST VID ANGEL

TO KEEP THE COMPANIES FROM

STREAMING FILTERED

CONTENT.

WE SPOKE WITH THE FOUNDER

IN NOVEMBER, JUST BEFORE

THE LEGAL BATTLE BEGAN.

THERE IS A FEELING IN

THE AIR AND A SENSE AMONG

THE PEOPLE WHO USE VID

ANGEL JUSTICE IS ON OUR

SIDE, ULTIMATELY.

WE JUST NEED TO GET THERE.

Efrem: VID ANGEL SAYS

IT PLANS TO KEEP PROVING

THAT CLEAN CONTENT SELLS,

ONE MOVIE AT A TIME.

> COMING UP, IT'S A

PARTNERSHIP WITH SPECIFIC

LEADERS, LAW ENFORCEMENT,

AND EVEN MEMBERS OF THE

NFL.

THEIR GOAL: TELL CHILDREN

THE TIME IS NOW FOR A

CHANGE.

WE GO INSIDE THIS UNIQUE

MINISTRY, NEXT.

Efrem: A VIRGINIA

Efrem: A VIRGINIA

PASTOR BELIEVES THAT

POWERFUL EXAMPLES OF

LEADERSHIP CAN HELP TO

CHANGE YOUNG PEOPLE AND

KEEP THEM OUT OF TROUBLE.

SO HE IS BUILDING A TEAM

OF CITY LEADERS, LAW

ENFORCEMENT, AND EVEN

MEMBERS OF THE NFL.

AS CHARLENE AARON SHOWS

US, THIS PARTNERSHIP IS

MAKING A DIFFERENCE.

Charlene: JAMES

WHISPER IS PASSIONATE

ABOUT SAVING YOUNG PEOPLE

FROM THE STREETS.

THE 58-YEAR-OLD PASTOR OF

GOD'S ASSEMBLAGE OF FAITH

CHURCH RECENTLY WORE A

PRISON JUMP SUIT TO

ILLUSTRATE THE

CONSEQUENSES OF BAD

DECISIONS.

IT IS EASY TO LOOK AT,

BUT IT IS HARD WORK.

Charlene: HIS OVERALL

MESSAGE TO THESE YOUNG

PEOPLE: THE TIME FOR

CHANGE IS NOW.

THE PASTOR'S NON-PROFIT

ORGANIZATION IS CALLED "AM

I MY BROTHER'SKEEPER,"

WHICH AIMS TO MENTOR

YOUTH.

I PICKED UP THAT NAME

BECAUSE IT IS BIBLICAL.

WHAT IT IS ABOUT IS

GETTING THE YOUNG PEOPLE

TO UNDERSTAND THAT THERE

IS A WAY OUT OF ALL

SITUATIONS.

Charlene: WHISPER

KNOWS WHAT IT IS LIKE TO

TAKE THE WRONG PATH.

THAT'S BECAUSE HE GREW UP

IN THE SAME COMMUNITY HE

IS TRYING TO REACH.

HIS BAD DECISIONS LED TO

DRUG ADDICTION AND JAIL.

IN 2006, HIS SON WAS SHOT

AND KILLED.

THE PASTOR NOW WANTS TO

HELP YOUNG PEOPLE AVOID

SIMILAR PITFALLS.

I CAME THROUGH

HOMELESSNESS AND DRUGS AND

EVERYTHING, SO WHAT I'M

DOING NOW IS GIVING BACK

SOME OF THE THINGS THAT

GOD GAVE ME.

Charlene: WHISPER AND

HIS FIANCEE, TERRY, HOPE

TO OPEN A COMMUNITY YOUTH

CENTER, OFFERING EDUCATION

SERVICES AND HELPING KIDS

DEALING WITH GANG

VIOLENCE, DRUGS, AND

BULLYING.

WE JUST WANT TO OFFER A

FULL-SCALE OF EVERYTHING

THAT IS PERTAINING TO

LIFE, THAT WILL HELP TO

MAKE YOUR LIFE MORE

COMPLETE AND BETTER.

Charlene: HIS VISION

IS SPREADING.

THIS FORMER GREENBAY

PACKER SPOKE RECENTLY AT

THE ANNUAL COMMUNITY

EVENT.

HE ALSO GREW UP HERE AND

WANTS TO SHOW SUCCESS CAN

BE ATTAINED.

ANY TIME SOMEONE LIKE

MYSELF IS ABLE TO MAKE IT

OUT, IT IS VITALLY

IMPORTANT THAT I COME BACK

TO GIVE THESE KIDS AND THE

YOUTH A CHANCE TO SEE

THAT, ONE, HE HAS A

COLLEGE DEGREE, AND HE HAS

A CAREER, WHICH WAS

FOUNDED IN EDUCATION.

Charlene: WILLIAM

SESSION THOUGHT THERE WAS

A NEED TO PARTNER WITH

GROUPS LIKE "MY BROTHER'S

KEEPER."

WHEN IT PARTNERS WITH

FAITH ORGANIZATIONS AND

NON-FAITH ORGANIZATIONS,

AND WHEN WE'RE PARTNERED,

GET OUT OF OUR WAY.

Charlene: AND HE

SEEKS TO IMPROVE YOUNG

PEOPLE'S NEGATIVE

IMPRESSION OF LAW

ENFORCEMENT.

MOST OF THE POLICE ARE

NOT LIKE THE ONES WE HAVE

SEEN.

MOST ARE OUT THERE TO

SERVE AND PROTECT.

BUT OUR YOUTH CATCH ON BY

WHAT OTHERS SAY.

WHENEVER THE POLICE KILL

OR SHOOT SOMEBODY, IT IS

USUALLY A BLACK MAN, BUT

AT THE SAME TOKEN, THEY

DON'T KNOW THE WHOLE

STORY.

Charlene: OFFICERS

CREDIT WHISPER AND OTHERS

FOR TRYING TO HELP MAKE

THEIR WORK EASIER.

HE HELPS US WITH

RECRUITING AND

UNDERSTANDING.

THE PARTNERSHIP IS

IMPORTANT.

Charlene: YOUNG

PEOPLE ATTENDING THE

AWARENESS PROGRAM SAY IT

OPENED THEIR EYES.

I'M A TEENAGER, AND I'M

LIKE, I CAN'T WAIT TO GET

OUT OF THE HOUSE.

BUT SEEING WHAT IS OUT

THERE, I'M, LIKE, I CAN

STAY A LITTLE LONGER.

I SEE A LOT OF SHOOTING

IN THE STREETS.

Charlene: CHRISTINE

DAVIS LOST A FRIEND TO GUN

VIOLENCE.

HE WAS AT THE WRONG

PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME

WITH THE WRONG PEOPLE.

AND AS A TEENAGER, THAT IS

HARD TO COPE WITH.

THEY NEED TO BE AWARE

OF THE THINGS THAT, YOU

KNOW, ARE PLAGUING OUR

COMMUNITY.

I'M JUST HAPPY THEY HAD

THE OPPORTUNITY TO

EXPERIENCE THE WONDERFUL

SKIT AND THE SPEAKERS.

I BELIEVE IT WILL EMPOWER

THEM AND MAKE THEM BETTER,

AND MAKE THE PARENTS

BETTER AS WELL.

Charlene: SOMETHING

THIS EX-OFFENDER SAYS IS

NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER.

> UP NEXT..."THE SHACK"

HITS THEATERS ON FRIDAY.

SEE OUR EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW WITH THE FILM'S

LEADER ACTOR.

AND HEAR WHY SOME

CHRISTIANS SAY THEY DON'T

PLAN TO SUPPORT THE FILM.

Efrem: SAM

WORTHINGTON STARS IN THE

NEW FILM "THE SHACK."

IT IS THE GRIPPING STORY

OF A GRIEVING FATHER

FACING UNTHINKABLE LOSS,

AND IT IS BASED ON WILLIAM

PAUL YOUNG'S BEST-SELLING

NOVEL.

WORTHINGTON HAS HIS OWNER

SHACK STORY AND HE SHARED

IT WITH ME.

IF YOU ARE WHO YOU SAY

YOU ARE, WHERE WERE YOU

WHEN I NEEDED YOU?

WHEN AL YOU SE ALL YOU SEE IS

YOUR PAIN, YOU LOSE SIGHT

OF ME.

I NEED TO SHARE WITH

GOD, JESUS, THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

I'VE HAD THOSE

CONVERSATIONS AT SOME

POINT IN MY LIFE, AND

STILL NOW.

YOU MISUNDERSTAND THE

MYSTERY.

DON'T EVER THINK THAT WHAT

MY SON CHOSE TO DO DIDN'T

COST US BOTH DEARLY.

IT ALWAYS LEAVES A MARK.

Efrem: DID YOU SEE

ANY OF SAM WORTHINGTON IN

MAX?

YEAH.

I'VE BUILT MY SHACK -- IF

"THE SHACK" IS A METAPHOR

FOR ALL OF THE ANGER AND

THE GUILT AND THE

RESENTMENT AND THE

FRUSTRATIONS WE HAVE WITH

LIFE AND THEN WE LIVE IN

IT, I'VE DEFINITELY LIVED

IN MINE AT SOME TIME IN MY

LIFE.

AND I VOICED THAT STRUGGLE

WITH THE QUESTIONS THAT

MAC HAS TOWARDS HIS FAITH

AND TOWARDS GOD OF WHY IS

THIS HAPPENING TO ME?

AND WHY DOES BAD STUFF

HAPPEN TO OTHERS?

ALL OF THESE KIND OF

MASSIVE QUESTIONS THAT TO

SOME OF US REMAIN

UNANSWERED AND

CHALLENGING.

THAT IS THE ASPECT OF WHAT

I WAS SEARCHING FOR WITHIN

THAT FRAMEWORK, YEAH.

Efrem: HOW HAVE YOU

SETTLED THOSE QUESTIONS

FOR YOURSELF, OR HAVE YOU?

AS MAC SAYS, HE IS JUST

BEGINNING HIS JOURNEY.

AND I THINK I'M ON A

JOURNEY.

I CAME TO MY FAITH VERY

LATE.

I WAS IN MY 20s WHEN I

KIND OF WAS GIVEN A BIBLE

TO READ BY MY FRIEND, TO

TELL ME TO CALM DOWN.

AND, YOU KNOW, I WAS

DATING A LOT OF GIRLS THAT

WERE RELIGIOUS, SO I WOULD

GO TO THEM TO CHURCHES.

IT WAS NEVER SOMETHING

THAT WAS PUT UPON ME AS A

KID.

I JOURNEYED ON TO IT BY

CHOICE, DISCOVERING HOW

FAITH CAN HELP YOU AND

HELP YOU BECOME A BETTER

PERSON.

Efrem: I READ -- AND

YOU CAN TELL ME IF THIS IS

INCORRECT -- THAT YOUR

DAD, WHEN YOU DROPPED OUT

OF COLLEGE, GAVE YOU $400

AND A ONE-WAY TICKET AND

SAID, WORK YOUR WAY BACK

HOME.

THAT'S RIGHT.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO

WITH MY LIFE, AND MY DAD

DIDN'T WANT ME SITTING ON

THE COUCH, WATCHING TV,

AND WASTING THIS SPECIAL

GIFT.

HE ALWAYS HAD A STRONG

WORK ETHIC, AND HE SAID,

I'LL SEND YOU AS FAR AWAY

TO THE OTHER SIDE OF

AUSTRALIA TO WHERE WE

LIVE, AND WORK YOUR WAY

BACK.

Efrem: WHAT WAS THAT

LIKE?

YOU'RE 18, 19.

IT WAS DIFFICULT,

RECKLESS, BUT YOU LEARN

WAY MORE THAN I WOULD IF I

WAS ON THE COUCH AND

WATCHED OTHER PEOPLE'S

LIVES.

IT WAS ONE OF THOSE KIND

OF EXPERIENCES I LOOK BACK

ON FONDLY, BUT I ALSO LOOK

BACK ON AND GO, I WON'T

EVER TELL ANYBODY THAT

STORY.

BUT YOUR 19, 20, YOU'RE

BILLION-PROOF.

BULLET-PROOF, AND YOU

THINK YOU CAN RULE THE

WORLD.

Efrem: YOU HAVE TWO

BOYS NOW.

DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD

SEND ANY OF THEM ON THAT

KIND OF A JOURNEY?

YEAH, PROBABLY.

BUT I'M A LONG WAY OFF

FROM THOSE BIG QUESTIONS

WITH MY SON.

WE'LL SEE.

BUT ANY KIND OF JOURNEY,

BE IT A PHYSICAL ONE, A

SPIRITUAL ONE, A

SELF-REFLECTING ONE, I

THINK IS ALWAYS IMPORTANT.

Efrem: I ALSO READ

THAT YOU SOLD EVERYTHING

AT ONE POINT AND LIVED IN

A CAR.

AND WHAT HAPPENED?

I HAD HAD A SOLID

CAREER IN AUSTRALIA MAKING

MOVIES, BUT I LOOKED

AROUND AT EVERYTHING I

OWNED AND FELT THAT IT WAS

DEFINING ME.

AND I DIDN'T LIKE WHO IT

WAS DEFINING AND WHAT IT

WAS SAYING.

I LOOKED IN THE MIRROR ONE

DAY AND DIDN'T LIKE WHAT I

SAW, SO I THOUGHT I'D SELL

THE MIRROR.

[LAUGHTER]

AND I LIVED IN A CAR

FOR A BIT TO FIGURE OUT

WHAT I WAS DOING.

Efrem: DID YOU FIND

GOD IN THAT --

YOU FIND A LOT OF

QUESTIONS.

AS I SAID, I CAME TO MY

FAITH REALLY LATE.

SO I WAS ABOUT TURNING 30

WHEN I DID THAT.

AND THE QUESTIONS THAT YOU

HAVE ARE ANGRY-MAN

QUESTIONS.

WHY?

WHAT'S GOING ON IN MY

LIFE?

WHY AM I HERE?

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO

ME?

I THINK WHEN I REACHED OUT

TOTO GOD, I GOT SOMEONE WHO

LISTENED AND WHO WASN'T

JUDGEMENTAL.

AND I MAY NOT HAVE GOT THE

ANSWERS BACK, BUT I HAD A

COMFORTING EAR.

AND I WAS ANGRY AT MYSELF

AND RAILING AT EVERYTHING,

BUT WHAT I GOT BACK WAS,

IT'S OKAY.

IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY.

AND THAT LOVE KIND OF

HELPS YOU THROUGH.

Efrem: SO HAS THAT

CHANGED YOUR LIFE, THAT

CONNECTION?

YEAH, THAT THERE IS

SOMEONE ALWAYS THERE.

BEING CONNECTED TO GOD CAN

HELP US CONNECT TO EACH

OTHER.

Efrem: "THE SHACK"

HITS THEATERS TOMORROW.

IT IS A FICTIONAL STORY,

BUT THE BOOK AND NOW THE

FILM HAS SPARKED SOME

CONTROVERSY, ESPECIALLY

AMONG CHRISTIANS.

WE'VE SEEN SOME OF IT

AFTER POSTING A VIDEO ON

OUR CBN Facebook PAGE.

ONE WRITES, "I READ THIS

BOOK AND WILL NOT WASTE A

PENNY TO SEE IT.

THE THEOLOGY IS AWFUL.

DON'T BE FOOLED."

AND JANET, WHO READ THE

BOOK THREE TIMES SAYS,

"THIS IS A FICTION STORY

BUT DIDN'T THREATEN MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH MY

HEAVENLY FATHER AT ALL,

RATHER, ENHANCED IT.

CREATIVE.

CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE

MOVIE.

IF YOU KNOW FATHER GOD,

LORD JESUS, AND HOLY

SPIRIT, THERE IS

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO FEAR

ABOUT THIS STORY.

IF WE KNOW OUR BIBLE, WE

HAVE EVERY WORD WE NEED

AND WE ARE KEPT IN PERFECT

PEACE IN HIS LOVE."

BOX OFFICE LAST WEEK.

THE INCREDIBLE AUDIENCE

SUPPORT SOLD OUT OUGHT

AUDITORIUMS AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

THE MOVIE TAKES YOU ON A

YEAR-LONG JOURNEY AROUND

THE WORLD WITH SCIENTISTS

IN THE EARTH, THE WATERS,
