George: THIS WEEK ON

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS," A

NEW EXODUS FROM EGYPT.

A WAVE OF KILLINGS BY ISIS

TERRORISTS HAS CHRISTIANS

FLEEING THEIR HOME IN THE

SINAI.

PLUS...

THIS IS THE TIME WHEN

HEARTS ARE OPEN, PEOPLE

ARE DESPERATE, AND JESUS

IS THE ANSWER THAT CAN

COME IN AND FILL THAT

NEED.

George: MUSLIMS HAVE

DREAMS AND VISIONS OF

JESUS CHRIST.

AND THE CHURCHES WHO ARE

HELPING THEM UNDERSTAND

HIS MESSAGE.

> AND...THEY TAKE TO THE

SKIES TO DELIVER MEDIL

AID, BIBLES, AND THE

GOSPEL OF CHRIST.

IT IS NO WONDER THIS

MINISTRY IS KNOWN AS GOD'S

AIR FORCE.

HELLO, EVERYONE.

WELCOME TO THIS WEEK'S

EDITION OF "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS."

I'M GEORGE THOMAS.

MY COLLEAGUE, WENDY

GRIFFITH, IS ON

ASSIGNMENT.

> IT HAS BEEN A HORRIFIC

TIME FOR CHRISTIANS IN

NORTHERN EGYPT.

THE TERROR GROUP ISIS

UNLEASHED A WAVE OF DEADLY

ATTACKS AFTER ANNOUNCING

THAT CHRISTIANS ARE THERE,

QUOTE, "FAVORITE PREY."

NOW HUNDREDS OF BELIEVERS

ARE FLEEING THEIR HOMES.

MORE THAN 150 EGYPTIAN

CHRISTIANS FLED THE

NORTHERN TOWN IN THE LAST

WEEK AFTER ISIS MILITANTS

SHOT AND KILLED AT LEAST

SEVEN CHRISTIANS.

MANY FAMILIES, LIKE THIS

MAN'S, ESCAPED WITH LITTLE

OF THEIR POSSESSIONS ARE

NOW SHELTING IN A SMALL

TOWN SOME 75 MILES EAST OF

EGYPT'S CAPITAL CITY,

CAIRO.

Through Translator:

WE LEFT ALL OF THE

APARTMENTS, MINE, MY ELDER

SON'S, AND HIS BROTHER'S.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator: I

CAN TELL YOU THAT I

BROUGHT ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

WITH ME.

BUT THANK GOD WE MADE IT

OUT ALIVE.

George: ISIS HAS

DECLARED EGYPTIAN

CHRISTIANS THEIR FAVORITE

PREY.

THE GROUP RELEASED A VIDEO

SAYING ITS FIGHTERS WERE

UNDER GUARDS' ORDERS TO

KILL EVERY INFIDEL AND

WARNED OF MORE ATTACKS.

THEY WEREN'T TAKING ANY

CHANCES, AND FLED THE

SINAI AFTER ISIS FIGHTERS

BARGED INTO HIS UNCLE'S

HOME, AND SHOT HIM AND HIS

SON DEAD.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

LAST THURSDAY MY COUSIN

WENT TO OPEN THE DOOR

AFTER HE HEARD SOMEONE

KNOCKING.

HE FOUND MASS TERRORISTS,

WITH A PISTOL, WHO TOOK

HIM INSIDE AND SHOT HIM IN

THE HEAD.

WHEN MY AUNT HEARD THE

SOUND OF HIS BODY FALLING

ON THE FLOOR, SHE CAME

FROM HER ROOM AND YELLED,

WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY SON?

THEY TOOK HER OUT TO THE

STREET BARE-FOOTED AND IN

HER PAJAMAS.

AND THEN WENT BACK FOR HER

HUSBAND AND KILLED HIM.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

George: EGYPT'S

COPTIC CHRISTIANS ARE 10%

OF THE POPULATION, AND ARE

OFTEN TARGETS OF MUSLIM

RADICALS.

MANY OF THEM FEAR THE

EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT IS

DOING LITTLE TO PROTECT

THEM.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

THERE IS NO LIFE FOR

CHRISTIANS THERE.

THEY ARE THIRSTY FOR THE

BLOOD OF ANY CHRISTIAN.

THERE IS NO WAY FOR ANY

CHRISTIAN TO LIVE IN

EL-ARISH.

THEY WANT AN ISLAMIC

STATE.

George: IN DECEMBER,

ISIS CARRIED OUT A

DEVASTATING ATTACK ON A

CAIRO CHURCH, KILLING 30

PEOPLE.

AND THEY SAY MORE ATTACKS

WILL BEFALL THEM.

JOINING ME NOW IS CBN'S

CHIEF INTERNATIONAL

CORRESPONDENT, GARY LANE.

AND HE HAS MADE SEVERAL

TRIPS TO EGYPT AND SAYS IT

IS ONE OF HIS FAVORITE

COUNTRIES.

GARY, WHY IS ISIS

TARGETING CHRISTIANS IN

THE SINAI NOW?

I THINK THERE ARE THREE

REASONS.

NUMBER ONE, THEY ARE THE

ISLAMIC STATE.

THEY WANT TO ESTABLISH AN

ISLAMIC STATE IN THAT

AREA, AND CONTROL THE

WATER AND THE PORT THAT IS

THERE ON THE OCEAN, WHICH

IS ABOUT 15, 20 MILES

SOUTH OF ISRAEL AND GAZA.

AND THERE IS A LOT OF

SMUGGLING THERE.

THEY WANT TO CONTROL THAT

AS WELL.

AND I THINK THEY SUSPECT

THAT CHRISTIANS MAY BE

SPIES FOR THE GOVERNMENT,

OR EVEN FOR THE ISRAELIS.

SO LET'S CLEAR THEM OUT

AND GET THEM OUT OF THERE.

AND ALSO, THEY WANT TO

EMBARRASS E el-SISI, AND

THEY WANT TO DELEGITIMIZE

HIS GOVERNMENT AND CAUSE

PROBLEMS FOR HIM.

George: AS THE LADY

SAID IN OUR PACKAGE, THAT

THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT

DOING ANYTHING.

WHY ISN'T THE GOVERNMENT

DOING ANYTHING?

Reporter: THEY SAY,

HEY, LOOK, THE GOVERNMENT

HASN'T PROVIDED US WITH

HOUSING.

THEY'RE NOT PROVIDING

ANYTHING FOR US.

AS A MATTER OF FACT IT WAS

AN EVANGELICAL CHURCH THAT

REACHED OUT TO HELP THE

CHRISTIANS THERE, NOT THE

GOVERNMENT.

IN ADDITION TO THAT,

ESPECIALLY IN PLACES LIKE

UPPER EGYPT, SOME OF THOSE

TOWNS AND VILLAGES --

YOU'VE BEEN THERE -- WHEN

THE MUSLIMS ATTACK THEM,

THE POLICE ARE SLOW TO

SPOND.

RESPOND.

SO THEIR HOMES,

BUSINESSES, AND CHURCHES

ARE BURNED.

AND THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T

DO ANYTHING.

George: WE'VE SEEN

THIS TREND ACROSS THE

MIDDLE EAST, AND IT IS

HAPPENING NOW IN EGYPT.

DO YOU HE A SENSE THIS

WILL SLOW DOWN OR PICK UP

IN THE DAYS, MONTHS AHEAD?

IT HAS SLOWED DOWN

SINCE THE DAYS OF THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, BUT IT

IS A SLOW TRICKLE.

AND IT IS BECAUSE OF

THINGS YOU JUST REPORTED

ABOUT THAT IS CAUSING THEM

TO LEAVE.

AND ANGELA MERKEL JUST MET

WITH el-SISI THIS WEEK

IN CAIRO, AND SHE WANTS

HIM TO STOP IMMIGRATION.

SHE SAID, WE'LL GIVE YOU

ECONOMIC AID IF YOU SLOW

THE IMMIGRATION TO EUROPE

AND GERMANY.

George: PRESIDENT

TRUMP HAS BACKED AWAY FROM

THE IDEA OF PROTECTING

IRAQI AND SYRIAN

CHRISTIANS.

WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THAT?

I THINK HE IS BACKING

AWAY BECAUSE OF LEGAL

REASONS.

I THINK HIS LEGAL ADVISORS

TOLD HIM YOU CAN'T PUT

THIS IN AN EXECUTIVE ORDER

AND EXPECT IT TO PASS

MUSTER WITH THE COURTS.

SO HE IS BACKING AWAY FOR

NOW, BUT I THINK HE IS

WANTS TO HELP CHRISTIANS

THERE.

George: GARY, THANK

YOU SO MUCH FOR YANKEE US.

JOINING

US.

WE STAY IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

CHRISTIANS ARE WORKING TO

HELP MUSLIM CHILDREN.

SAT 7 HAS ANNOUNCED PLANS

TO LAUNCH A 24-HOUR

CHANNEL FOR SYRIAN

REFUGEES.

ABOUT HALF OF THEM ARE

UNDER THE AGE OF 12.

AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, THEY

LACK SCHOOLS AND EDUCATION

BECAUSE OF THE WAR.

SAT 7 WILL EXPAND CURRENT

BROADCASTS THAT TEACH

MATH, SCIENCE, ARABIC AND

ENGLISH.

WE SPOKE TO THE C.E.O. TO

GET AN IDEA OF WHAT THE

CHANNEL IS GOING TO DO FOR

THE KIDS' VALUES.

WE'RE NOT QUOTING THE

BIBLE.

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

JESUS.

WE WANT TO REACH

EVERYBODY.

BUT WE'RE TAKING HUMAN

VALUES THAT WE ASPIRE TO

HAVE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

LIKE ACCEPTING PEOPLE,

EVEN IF THEY ARE

DIFFERENT.

WE CANNOT TAKE THE PLACE

OF THE SCHOOLS.

WE ARE, LIKE, KIND OF

HELPING IN ORDER TO HAVE A

NEW GENERATION OF LEADERS,

NOT FOLLOWERS.

George: THANK YOU,

RITA.

COMINGUCOMING UP, MORE AND MORE

MUSLIMS COMING TO CHRIST

THROUGH DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

George: WELCOME BACK

TO "CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS."

DREAMING DREAMS AND SEEING

VISIONS, MEN AND WOMEN ARE

COMING TO CHRIST BECAUSE

JESUS HAS APPEARED TO

THEM.

MY COLLEAGUE, CHRIS

MITCHELL, BRINGS US THIS

AMAZING STORY.

Chris: HAZAM HOSTS A

SATELLITE TV PROGRAM FOR

S

"REFLECTIONS."

HE SAYS H HE FROM

MUSLIMS ALL OF THE TIME

WHO SAY THEY HAD A DREAM

OR VISION DRIES JESUS CHRIST

AND IT CHANGED THEIR

LIVES.

SHE SAID, THE WORDS

THAT WERE COMING OUT OF

YOUR MOUTH WERE SO

PEACEFUL, I FELL ASLEEP.

AND WHEN I FELL ASLEEP, I

ENDED UP HAVING A VISION

OF JESUS.

SHE SAID, I SAW THE LORD.

SHE WASN'T A BELIEVER.

SHE SAID, I SAW THE LORD

JESUS, AND HE WAS IN A

BRIGHT WHITE ROBE.

AND HE POINTED TO A MAN

WHO I KNEW WAS ABRAHAM.

AND SHE SAID, AS SOON AS I

LOOKED OVER, I KNEW IT WAS

THE SON OF GOD.

Chris: MUSLIM MEN AND

WOMEN ARE TURNING TO FAITH

IN JESUS CHRIST IN

UNPRECEDENTED NUMBERS.

FOR MANY, THEIR

CONVERSIONS ARE NOT SIMPLY

THE RESULT OF MISSIONARIES

OR PREACHERS SHARING THE

GOSPEL WITH THEM.

INSTEAD, THESE MUSLIMS ARE

COMING TO CHRIST BECAUSE

THEY'VE HAD DREAMS AND

VISIONS, WHERE JESUS

HIMSELF APPEARS TO THEM.

ALI ALSO MET JESUS IN A

DREAM WHILE ON HIS WAY TO

MECCA FOR THE MUSLIM

PILGRIMAGE CALLED "THE

HOJ" ALI'S EXPERIENCE IN

MECCA IS DRAMATIZED IN

THIS D.V.D. CALLED "MORE

THAN DREAMS."

THAT NIGHT I SAW JESUS

IN A DREAM.

FIRST HE TOUCHED MY

FOREHEAD WITH HIS FINGER.

AFTER TOUCHING ME, HE

SAID, YOU BELONG TO ME.

AND THEN HE TOUCHED ME

ABOVE MY HEART.

YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED.

FOLLOW ME.

YOU BELONG TO ME, HE SAID.

I DECIDED, OKAY, I'M NOT

GOING TO FINISH THE HAJ,

THAT PILGRIMAGE.

WHATEVER IT TAKES, I'M

GOING TO FOLLOW THAT

VOICE.

Chris: THE D.V.D.

TELLS OF OTHER MUSLIMS WHO

CAME TO FAITH IN JESUS

THROUGH A DREAM OR VISION.

WE'RE SEEING THAT ALL

AROUND.

WE'RE HEARING THAT PEOPLE

WHO NEVER EVEN THOUGHT

ABOUT JESUS AS SAVIOR, AND

THEY'RE CONTENT MUSLIMS,

AND THEY'RE HAVING DREAMS

OVER AND OVER.

Chris: TOM AND HIS

WIFE, JOANNE, SHARE THE

GOSPEL WITH MUSLIMS.

AND HE WROTE THE RECENTLY

RELEASED BOOK "DREAMS AND

VISIONS, IS JESUS

AWAKENING THE WORLD?"

THEY DON'T KNOW WHERE

TO GO.

MAYBE THEY DON'T HAVE A

BIBLE, AND HE'LL GET THE

MESSAGE TO THEM SOMEHOW.

Chris: THIS WOMAN'S

IDENTITY IS HIDDEN FOR

SECURITY REASONS.

IN A CHURCH, IF YOU ASK

HOW PEOPLE CAME TO CHRIST,

80% WILL SAY THEY SAW HIM

IN A DREAM.

Chris: A CHRISTIAN

FRIEND CHALLENGED THIS

WOMAN TO ASK GOD TO SPEAK

TO HER PERSONALLY.

SO I DECIDED TO ASK

HIM, AND SO I DID.

AND THEN THE NEXT DAY, I

GUESS, I SAW A DREAM AND I

SAW IN MY DREAM JESUS, AND

I DECIDED TO COME TO HIM.

Chris: DOYLE SAYS THE

DREAM OR VISION IS USUALLY

THE START, NOT THE END, OF

A MUSLIM'S CONVERSION.

NOBODY GOES TO SLEEP A

MUSLIM AND WAKES UP A

CHRISTIAN, BUT IT KNOCKS

DOWN THE FALSE BARRIERS

THAT ARE INHERIT IN ISLAM.

ONE OF THEM IS WE WORSHIP

THREE GODS.

Chris: THIS COULD BE

SEEN AS A SPIRITUAL

EARTHQUAKE.

AS THINGS HEAT UP

POLITICALLY AND

SPIRITUALLY IN ISLAM, THE

HOLY SPIRIT IS MOVING EVEN

MORE POWERFULLY.

THIS IS THE TIME WHEN

HEARTS ARE OPEN, PEOPLE

ARE DESPERATE, EVERYBODY'S

FOUNDATION HAS MASSIVE

CRACKS IN IT, AND JESUS

CAN COME IN AND FILL THAT

NEED.

Chris: THIS COMBINED

WITH SATELLITE TELEVISION

ARE REACHING MUSLIMS IN

UNPRECEDENTED NUMBERS.

THEY SAY MORE MUSLIMS ARE

COMING TO JESUS CHRIST

THAN ANY OTHER TIME IN THE

1400-YEAR HISTORY OF

ISLAM.

THE DOYLES SAY BELIEVERS

IN THE WEST CAN JOIN THE

SPIRITUAL REVELATION.

THE HARVEST IS

PLENTIFUL, BUT THE WORKERS

ARE FEW.

WE ARE COMMITTED, ALL OF

US, AS BELIEVERS, THAT

WE'VE GOT TO REACH THOSE

WITH THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST.

NOT EVERYBODY IS GOING

TO GO TO THE MIDDLE EAST,

BUT THEY CAN PRAY.

NO LEADER CAN BLOCK

INTERCESSION AROUND THE

WORLD.

THAT IS ONE THING THAT CAN

GET INTO ANY COUNTRY.

SO WE NEED TO PRAY, AS

BELIEVERS, THAT GOD WOULD

CONTINUE TO JUST PUSH THE

GOSPEL OUT TO THE ENDS OF

THE EARTH.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

STORY WITH YOUR FRIENDS

AND FAMILY, YOU CAN DO

> COMING UP, GOD'S AIR

FORCE, THE HIGH-FLYING

MINISTRY THAT IS TAKING

THE GOSPEL AROUND THE

WORLD.

George: A TRIAL IN

BRISTOL, ENGLAND, HAS BEEN

DESCRIBED AS A MODERN DAY

HARRASY TRIAL.

THE COURTS CONVICTED TWO

STREET VENDORS.

THEY SAID QUOTING PARTS OF

THE KING JAMES BIBLE

SHOULD BE CONSIDERED

ABUSIVE AND A CRIMINAL

MATTER.

THE TWO WERE FOUND GUILTY

UNDER THE CRIME AND

DISORDER ACT.

THEY WERE PREACHING IN A

BRISTOL SHOPPING AREA LAST

JULY WHEN THEY WERE

ARRESTED.

THE CHRISTIAN LEGAL

CENTER, WHICH REPRESENTED

THE MEN, SAID IT WOULD

APPEAL.

> FIVE CHRISTIANS ARE

BEING SENT TO PRISON FOR

BUYING AND SELLING

DEVOTIONALS.

THAT'S HAPPENING IN CHINA.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE

CHRISTIAN HUMAN RIGHTS

ORGANIZATION CHINA AID.

THE GROUP OF LEADERS WAS

ARRESTED LAST JUNE FOR

ALLEGEDLY BUYING AND

SELLING, QUOTE,

"OFFICIALLY FORBIDDEN

CHRISTIAN DEVOTIONAL

BOOKS."

LAST WEEK A COURT

SENTENCED THEM TO THREE TO

SEVEN YEARS IN JAIL.

THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT HAS

BEEN CRACKING DOWN ON

UNDERGROUND CHURCHES.

> CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES

TRAVEL TO THE FAR CORNERS

OF THE WORLD TO SPREAD THE

GOSPEL.

MANY PLACES ARE JUST

LITERALLY DOTS ON THE MAP,

AND CAN BE VIRTUALLY

INACCESSIBLE.

BUT SOME PLACES THAT USED

TO TAKE WEEKS OR MONTHS TO

GET TO, WELL, NOW THEY'RE

JUST AN AIRPLANE RIDE

AWAY.

THAT IS, IF YOU HAVE A

PLACE TO LAND.

DAVID MINTZ TELLS US HOW

ONE TRIBE MADE THAT HAPPEN

AND THE CHRISTIAN GROUP

THAT CAME TO VISIT.

Reporter:

MISSIONARIES CAME TO THIS

VILLAGE IN INDONESIA WITH

A GOAL.

OUR GOAL HERE IS TO

PLANT A CHURCH THAT CAN

REACH OUT AND REACH THE

REST OF THE PEOPLE.

Reporter: FIRST THEY

NEEDED TO GET THE WANO

MISSIONARIES THERE.

AND TO DO THAT, THEY

NEEDED AN AIR STRIP.

IT TOOK THEM YEARS,

WORKING MOSTLY WITH

SHOVELS AND STICKS AND

BACK-BREAKING LABOR.

TWO YEARS OF WORK TO

GET THIS DONE.

AND TO SEE THE PLANE

CIRCLING FOR THE FIRST

TIME, IT IS SURREAL.

YOU FEEL THE EMOTIONS.

IT IS SO COOL TO HAVE AN

AIRPLANE LAND, TOUCH DOWN.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: THE PLANE

BELONGINGS TO "MISSION

AVIATION FELLOWSHIP," AND

IT SERVES PEOPLE IN AREAS

WHERE TRANSPORTATION IS

DIFFICULT.

THEY ARE ABLE TO WORK WITH

SOME 1500 CHURCHES, HEALTH

CARE ORGANIZATIONS, RELIEF

AGENCIES, AND MISSION

GROUPS.

THEY DELIVER BIBLE

TRANSLATION TEAMS.

WE'RE HERE TO CELEBRATE

THE FINISHING OF THE

COMPLETE BIBLE IN THE

HOOPLA LANGUAGE.

THIS IS IT.

THIS IS EXCITING STUFF FOR

US.

WE'VE BEEN PARTNERING WITH

THE MISSIONARIES THAT HAVE

BEEN WORKING TO TRANSLATE

THIS THING FOR YEARS AND

YEARS AND YEARS.

IT IS GREAT TO BE ABLE TO

COME AND JOIN THEM IN THE

CELEBRATION.

Reporter: THEY FLY

MERCY MISSIONS.

THIS IS MICAH.

HE WAS CLIMBING IN A TREE

WITH SOME OTHER KIDS, AND

HE FELL AND A BRANCH

IMPALED HIS ABDOMEN.

A MAN NOTICED HIM AND

PULLED THAT BRANCH OUT AND

RAN TO OUR HOUSE.

WE COULD FEEL THE PIECE OF

WOOD IN THERE.

ABOUT AN INCH AND A HALF

LONG.

Reporter: A FRANTIC

CALL FOR HELP WAS PLACED.

LORD, WE PRAY THAT THE

INFECTION HASN'T SET IN

AND THAT THE DOCTOR CAN

QUICKLY TAKE CARE OF THE

ISSUES, AND HE AND THE

FAMILY CAN COME BACK HERE.

WE PUT THESE THINGS IN

YOUR HANDS IN YOUR NAME.

Reporter: MICAH AND

HIS FAMILY WERE FLOWN TO A

HOSPITAL, WHERE DOCTORS

FOUND THAT THE WOOD HAD

PIERCED BOTH SMALL

INTESTINE WALLS.

SHE WAS RUSHEHE WAS RUSHED TO SURGERY.

IN LESS THAN A WEEK, HE

HAD RECOVERED ENOUGH TO BE

FLOWN HOME.

WE ARE REALLY THANKFUL.

BECAUSE IF THAT WOOD

STAYED IN THERE ANY

LONGER, IT COULD HAVE

CAUSED INFECTION.

Reporter: REMEMBER

THAT AIR STRIP WE TALKED

ABOUT EARLIER?

WELL, IT IS USED TO FLY

NEWLY TRAIN WANO

MISSIONARIES TO OTHER

PARTS OF THE ISLAND TO

SHARE THE WORD.

THESE ARE MY TWO GOOD

FRIENDS.

THEY'RE FROM OUR HOME

VILLAGE.

AND NOW THEY'RE DOWN HERE

IN THE LOWLANDS, SHARING

THE TEACHINGS, THE GOOD

NEWS, TO SOME OF THEIR

RELATIVES THAT LIVE DOWN

HERE.

Reporter: EACH YEAR

THEY SERVE OVER 600

NON-PROFITS, LOCAL

GOVERNMENTS, AND MISSION

ORGANIZATIONS ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

THEY ENABLE MINISTRIES TO

PROVIDE ISOLATED PEOPLE

WITH GOODS, WHILE SHARING

THE LOVE OF GOD IN A

TANGIBLE WAY.

SOME CALL THEM GOD'S AIR

FORCE.

CBN NEWS.

George: THE RESIDENTS

OF INDONESIA'S NEAREST

ISLAND ARE CHRISTIAN.

SADLY THE COMMUNITY WAS

NEGLECTED UNTIL 2005, WHEN

A POWERFUL EARTHQUAKE

STRUCK THERE.

THAT'S WHEN CBN RESPONDED

TO HELP REBUILD VILLAGES

ON THE ISLAND.

TODAY THE MINISTRY IS

CONTINUING TO HELP IMPROVE

THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE

THERE, ESPECIALLY THOSE

LITTLE ONES.

LUCILLE TALUSAN BRICS US

THIS STORY.

Reporter: THE

STUDENTS AT THIS PUBLIC

SCHOOL ARE EXCITED BECAUSE

ON THIS DAY THEY GET A

FREE MEDICAL CHECKUP.

CHILDREN LIKE NAVITA AND

MONALISA ARE DEPRIVED OF

MEDICAL ATTENTION BECAUSE

THEIR FAMILIES ARE VERY

POOR.

LIVING ON THE ISLAND IS

HARD BECAUSE IT IS ONE OF

THE DISTRICTS WITH THE

HIGHEST POVERTY RATE.

HERE FAMILIES LIVE ON A $5

MONTHLY INCOME PLANTING

RUBBER TREES.

CBN'S PROJECT TO EMPOWER

CHILDREN LIKE THEM GIVES

EVEN THEIR SCHOOL

PRINCIPAL A GLIMMER OF

HOPE.

MONATI IS GRATEFUL THAT

CBN HUMANITARIAN WORKERS

TRAVEL SEVERAL HOURS

THROUGH RUF ROUGH, ZIG-ZAGGED

ROADS, JUST TO REACH THEIR

SCHOOL.

THE PROGRAMS OF CBN

HAVE CHANGED THE SPIRIT IN

OUR SCHOOLS.

THERE IS MORE HOPE FOR THE

STUDENTS.

THE FATHERS OF MOST OF

THESE STUDENTS ARE NOT

GOOD MODELS BECAUSE AFTER

HARVEST, THEY JUST SIT IN

FRONT OF THEIR HOUSES AND

DRINK ALCOHOL.

IT'S THE PROGRAMS OF CBN

THAT HELP INSTILL IN OUR

STUDENTS THE VALUES FROM

THE BIBLE, TO HELP THEM

HAVE A BETTER LIFE.

Reporter: AFTER CBN'S

DOCTOR CHECKS THE

CHILDREN, THE PASTOR

SHARES THE GOSPEL TO ALL

150 STUDENTS AND PRAYS FOR

THEM.

THE CHILDREN ARE ALSO

GIVEN FREE VITAMINS AND

MEDICINE.

WHEN I SAW A LOT OF

CHILDREN, HOW THEY LIVE,

IT REALLY TOUCHED MY

HEART.

AND I KNOW THAT THIS IS

WHAT GOD'S CALLING ME TO

DO, NOT ONLY TO HELP THEM,

BUT TO GIVE THEM LOVE, TO

SHOW THEM LOVE, TO GIVE

THEM HELP.

Reporter: CBN ALSO

CONDUCTS FEEDING PROGRAMS

IN THE VILLAGES.

MORE THAN 100 MALNOURISHED

CHILDREN ARE BEING FED

NUTRITIOUS MEALS UNTIL

THEY GAIN BACK THEIR

NORMAL WEIGHT.

AND IN ADDITION TO THAT,

THESE MOTHERS ARE GIVEN

HEALTH EDUCATION AND ALSO

LIVELIHOOD TRAINING.

THESE MOTHERS ARE TAUGHT

HOW TO MAKE CLOTH OUT OF

BAMBOO SHUTES.

MY CHILDREN WERE ALWAYS

SICK AND CANNOT GO TO

SCHOOL.

I'M THANKFUL TO CBN

BECAUSE OF THE FEEDING

PROGRAM; THEY ARE NOW

HEALTHIER.

AND I'M HAPPY WE CAN MAKE

CLOTHS, WHICH WE CAN ALSO

SELL.

Reporter: THE

HIGHLIGHT OF THE MEDICAL

MISSION WAS THE

"SUPERBOOK" FUN NIGHT,

WHERE THE CHILDREN WATCHED

THE GIANT ADVENTURE.

NAVITA'S MOTHER IS HAPPY

ABOUT THE CHANGES THAT

"SUPERBOOK" IS MAKING IN

HER DAUGHTER'S CHARACTER.

MY DAUGHTER USED TO BE

REBELLIOUS.

HER CHARACTER HAS CHANGED

AFTER WATCHING

"SUPERBOOK."

NOW SHE ALWAYS PRAYS AND

RESPECTS ME.

Reporter: USING CBN

PROGRAMS TO MOLD THE NEXT

GENERATION, THE FUTURE OF

MIAS LOOKS BRIGHT.

ONE DAY MIAS ISLAND

WILL BE CHANGED.

ONE DAY IN THE FUTURE,

MIAS WILL BE GREAT BECAUSE

GOD LOVES THIS ISLAND.

Reporter: LUCILLE

TALUSAN, CBN NEWS, MIAS

ISLAND, INDONESIA.

George: AND CBN IS

MAKING THAT HAPPEN.

WELL, FOLKS, THAT IS IT

FOR THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US.

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, GOOD-BYE

AND GOD BLESS YOU.
