George: THIS WEEK ON

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS"...

THE CONNECTION IS THESE

ARE WITCH DOCTORS, WHO

COME AND TELL PEOPLE WHO

WANT TO GET RICH, YOU KNOW

TO GET RICH, YOU NEED TO

SACRIFICE HUMAN BLOOD.

George: OUR EXCLUSIVE

STORY ON CHILD SACRIFICE

IN UGANDA.

MEET THE MINISTER WHO IS

MIGHTING TO END THIS

DEMONIC PRACTICE WHILE HE

HELPS HEAL THE SURVIVORS.

Wendy: PLUS...AS

THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIAN

REFUGEES WAIT FOR AMERICA

TO OPEN ITS DOORS, WE'LL

INTRODUCE YOU TO ONE

BUSINESSMAN WHO TOOK A

CHANCE ON A REFUGEE

COMMUNITY AND FOUND A

BLESSING HE COULD NEVER

HAVE IMAGINED.

George: AND IT'S A

NATION OF 23 MILLION

PEOPLE, AND VERY FEW HAVE

HEARD THE NAME OF JESUS.

NOW THESE TWO MISSIONARIES

ARE HOPING TO MAKE HIM

KNOWN IN THEIR LIFETIME.

George: HELLO,

EVERYONE, AND WELCOME TO

THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS."

I'M GEORGE THOMAS.

Wendy: AND I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

HERE IN AMERICA, PRESIDENT

TRUMP IS TRYING TO

RESTRICT THE FLOW OF

REFUGEES TO PROTECT THE

COUNTRY FROM MUSLIM

TERRORISTS.

BUT SOME SAY IT IS ALSO

KEEPING OUT CHRISTIAN

REFUGEES WHO ARE STUCK IN

ISLAMIC NATIONS.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Dale: JEN, HER

HUSBAND AND FIVE CHILDREN

HAVE SPENT YEARS CLEARING

ALL OF THE REFUGEE HURTLES

TO COME TO THE U.S., BLOOD

TESTS, FINGERPRINTS, AND

BACKGROUND CHECKS.

WHILE THESE CHRISTIANS

WAIT IN THIS REFUGEE

CENTER IN MALAYSIA, HOPING

FOR THE U.S. EMBASSY TO

CALL, SHE READS HER MOST

PRIZED POSSESSION, HER

BIBLE.

SHE AND HER FAMILY DR

OFIV A DS TAT PPENING

NOW SEEM SLIM.

Through Translator:

AMERICA IS REALLY OUR

FATHER LAND IN TERMS OF

RELIGION.

THEY SENT THEIR

MISSIONARIES TO OUR

COUNTRY AND TAUGHT US TO

BE CHRISTIANS.

AND NOW WE HAVE TO BE

SAFE.

ALL WE WANT IS TO BE SAFE.

FOR US, GOING TO AMERICA

IS LIKE CHILDREN GOING TO

THEIR PARENTS AND IT IS A

SAFE PLACE FOR US.

Dale: PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S TRAVEL BAN WOULD

MEAN 60,000 LESS REFUGEE

VISAS, AND ONE OF THE

GROUPS MOST IMPACTED OR

MYANMAR CHRISTIANS, WHO

HAVE FLED PERSECUTION IN

THEIR HOME LAND.

MYANMAR IS NOT SAFE FOR

US.

THEY KILL PEOPLE AND SEND

PEOPLE TO JAIL BECAUSE OF

THEIR RELIGION.

THEY BAN OUR PRAYER.

THE MILITARY WOULD COME IN

OUR HOUSES TO STOP THE

PRAYER SERVICES.

MYANMAR IS UNSAFE AND WE

CANNOT GO BACK.

Dale: SO JEN AND HER

FAMILY KEEP STUDYING

ENGLISH, HOPING THAT THEIR

PRAYER TO LIVE IN AMERICA

WILL BE ANSWERED.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

George: SOME

EVANGELICAL LEADERS HERE

IN THE U.S. ARE URGING THE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO

WELCOME REFUGEES TO OUR

COUNTRY.

SCOTT ARBITER ACKNOWLEDGED

THAT THE WORLD IS A SCARY

PLACE, BUT SAYS, HOWEVER,

WE CAN BALANCE SAFETY AND

COMPASSION.

HE POINTED OUT IF JESUS

HAD NOT RISKED HIS OWN

SAFETY, QUOTE, "THERE

WOULD HAVE BEEN NO MANGER,

NO CROSS, AND NO

RESURRECTION, AND I WOULD

BE DEAD IN MY SINS."

Wendy: A GOOD POINT.

REFUGEES AND IMMIGRANTS

ARE OFTEN A BLESSING TO

THEIR NEW COUNTRIES.

THAT'S WHAT ONE COLORADO

BUSINESS OWNER DISCOVERED.

George: WHEN JAMES'

COMPANY STARTED GOING

DOWNHILL, HE TOOK AN

UNUSUAL STEP.

AND AS STEPHANIE RIGGS

EXPLAINS, IT TURNED OUT TO

BE THE SOLUTION TO HIS

PROBLEM.

Reporter: THIS PALATE

COMPANY MAKES A SIMPLE

PRODUCT.

THESE PALATES TRANSPORT

MOST OF WHAT WE USE EVERY

DAY.

BUT THEY ALSO SERVE AN

EVEN GREATER PURPOSE FOR

SECOND-GENERATION BUSINESS

OWNER JAMES.

WE HAD A TREMENDOUS

AMOUNT OF TURNOVER.

THAT MEANS YOU'RE HIRING

SIX TO 10 PEOPLE A WEEK

TRYING TO STAFF A PLACE.

WE REACHED A PLACE IN TIME

WHERE I FELT THIS BUSINESS

COULDN'T GROW, AND IT WAS

FROM A STAFFING

PERSPECTIVE.

I COULDN'T SEE THE

POSSIBILITY OF EXPANDING

AND TAKING ON EXTRA

RESPONSIBILITY.

BECAUSE WE WERE HAVING A

HARD TIME GETTING PEOPLE

TO COME TO THE FRONT DOOR.

AT THE SAME TIME GOD IS

WORKING ON ME AND TENDER

RISINTENDERIZING ME, I DECIDED

TO LOOK AT THE REFUGEE

COMMUNITY AS A SOURCE OR

STREAM FOR EMPLOYEES.

Reporter: FROM

STAGNATION TO A VIBRANT,

THRIVING BUSINESS, THAT

STARTED WITH SEVEN

REFUGEES FROM BURMA TO NOW

81, AND THEY ARE LOYAL,

GRATEFUL EMPLOYEES.

I THINK IT IS GREAT TO SAY

THIS PALATE COMPANY HAS A

NEW PURPOSE: IT'S PEOPLE.

WHAT WE DECIDED TO DO,

PRAYING INTO THE PEOPLE,

STARTED SHOWING UP ON THE

BOTTOM LINE.

PROFITABILITY CHANGED.

IT WAS A MOMENT IN TIME

WHERE I FELT GOD KISSED ME

ON THE FOREHEAD AS A CHILD

OF HIS, AND SAID, SILLY

LITTLE BOY, THAT DIDN'T

JUST HAPPEN.

THIS ISN'T COINCIDENCE.

I HAD MY HAND ON YOU AND

THERE WAS A PLAN.

IT IS VERY EXCITING TO

START TO SEE MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM WORK

THAT WAY.

Reporter: THIS PALATE

COMPANY EVOLVED INTO THIS

FACTORY OF HOPE, FILLED

WITH MEN AND WOMEN WHO

OTHERWISE WOULD BE LIVING

IN POVERTY.

THE BOSS GIVES US AN

OPPORTUNITY.

THEY LET US COME FROM

BURMA.

THEY PAY US GOOD MONEY AND

GIVE US GOOD JOBS.

A LOT OF TIMES BUSINESS

OWNERS WANT YOU TO LEAVE

YOUR PROBLEMS AT HOME,

GIVE YOU A HARD DAY'S WORK

AND LEAVE.

I USED TO BE THAT WAY.

NOW WE ENCOURAGE THEM TO

BRING THEIR PROBLEMS.

WHAT DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?

WHAT ARE YOU CONFUSED

ABOUT?

WE BRING IN LENDERS AND

HELP THEM UNDERSTAND

CREDIT.

WE HELP THEM BUY HOMES BY

GETTING THEM INVOLVED IN

THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN

COLORADO.

WE'RE FUMIGATING THEIR

HOUSES FOR THEM BECAUSE

THEY'RE IN LOW-INCOME

AREAS WHERE THEY'VE GOT

DIFFERENT KINDS OF BUGS.

THESE ARE MINISTRY

OPPORTUNITIES FOR US TO GO

IN AND DO SOMETHING.

THEY TAKES CARE OF MANY

PEOPLE FROM THE REFUGEE

CAMP.

I WORKED HERE FOR 30

YEARS, MAYBE MORE.

WHAT I STARTED TO DO

WAS PRAY TO THE OWNER OF

THIS COMPANY AND SAID,

LORD, BRING TO MY COMPANY

WHO YOU WANT TO WORK HERE,

WHO YOU WANT TO HAVE

REFUGE.

I FEEL VERY BLESSED THAT

THE BURMESE PEOPLE HAVE

BEEN INTRODUCED INTO MY

COMPANY.

I CAN GO RIGHT OUTSIDE MY

OFFICE DOOR AND IMPACT

FAMILIES AND LIVES AND

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Reporter: HIS FATHER

STARTED THIS BUSINESS IN

1974.

HE HAD NO IDEA IT WOULD

BECOME A PLACE OF REFUGE,

PRODUCING MORE THAN THESE

PALATES, BUT PEOPLE WITH

HOPE.

CBN NEWS I IN DENVER.

Wendy: UP NEXT, THEY

COULDN'T BE ANY FURTHER

FROM THEIR HOMES AND

FAMILIES, BUT THESE TWO

MISSIONARIES ARE

DISCOVERING THE BLESSING

OF GIVING IT ALL UP FOR

CHRIST.

Wendy: IN BANGLADESH,

MUSLIMS ARE LEAVING ISLAM

TO FOLLOW JESUS.

BANGLADESH IS THE FOURTH

LARGEST MUSLIM NATION IN

THE ENTIRE WORLD.

BUT THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS

HAVE BECOME CHRISTIANS IN

THE LAST TWO YEARS.

CBN NEWS RECENTLY SPOKE TO

JIM JACOBSON OF CHRISTIAN

FREEDOM INTERNATIONAL TO

LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

BANGLADESH IS ON THE

PATH TO BECOMING A

CHRISTIAN NATION IN OUR

LIFETIME BECAUSE YOU SEE

IT GROWING, HOUSE

CHURCHES, WHERE ONE PASTOR

IS PASTORING FIVE OR SIX

CHURCHES.

A PASTOR WHO USED TO BE A

POLICE OFFICER TOLD ME

THAT IN THE HILLSIDE

AREAS, THAT OVER THE PAST

TWO YEARS SOME 20,000

MUSLIMS HAVE CONVERTED TO

CHRISTIANITY.

AND THAT'S JUST ONE

EXAMPLE, ONE STORY, ONE

TESTIMONY.

SO SOMETHING IS GOING ON.

AND, AGAIN, IT'S LIKE A

WILDFIRE.

Wendy: MANY MUSLIM

CONVERTS FACE VIOLENT

PERSECUTION AND REJECTION

FROM THEIR FAMILIES.

BUT THEY REFUSE TO GIVE UP

THEIR NEW FAITH.

PLEASE, WE ASK THAT YOU

KEEP THEM IN PRAYER.

George: YOU KNOW, FOR

MOST PEOPLE TRAVELLING IS

A WAY TO TAKE A BREAK FROM

THEIR EVERYDAY, ORDINARY

LIVES, BUT SOMETIMES LIFE

THROWS US A SURPRISE.

Wendy: THAT'S WHAT

HAPPENED TO RICHARD AND

JESSE ROBERTS WHEN THEIR

ONCE IN A LIFETIME

VACATION TURNED INTO A

LIFETIME CALLING.

MUNG FE LI HAS THEIR

STORY.

Reporter: THIS IS A

SMALL ISLAND NATION,

ENRICHED BA BY UNIQUE

CULTURE.

IT MAKES TAIWAN AN

ATTRACTIVE TOURIST SPOT.

BUDDHISM AND DAOISM ARE

THE MAJOR RELIGIONS OF

TAIWAN.

MOST OF THE PEOPLE GO

TO TEMPLE AND THEY LOOK

FOR GOOD LUCK AND FORTUNE.

Reporter: TEMPLES IN

TAIWAN ARE PULL OF

FASCINATING DESIGNS AND

TRADITIONAL SYMBOLS.

CHURCHES ARE HARD TO BE

FOUND IN THE NORTHEAST

REGION OF THE ISLAND, AND

CHRISTIANITY IS NEARLY

NON-EXISTENT.

OF TAIWAN'S 23 MILLION

PEOPLE, 6% ARE CHRISTIANS.

MORE THAN 28% FOLLOW

BUDDHISM.

LESS THAN 3% CLAIM NO

RELIGION AT ALL.

WE WILL HAVE A MINI

PRAYER.

Reporter: THESE

AMERICAN CHRISTIANS ARE ON

THE MOVE.

THEIR MISSION: INTRODUCING

THE TAIWANESE TO CHRIST.

RICHARD ROBERTS AND HIS

WIFE, JESSE, MOVED TO

TAIWAN FROM AMERICA

GEORGIA.

THEY FOUND OUT THAT SOME

PEOPLE HAD NEVER HEARD OF

JESUS DURING THEIR FIRST

TRIP.

THEY DON'T HAVE A LOT

OF INFORMATION ON CHRIST

AND HOW CHRIST IS THEIR

SAVIOR AND CAN BE THEIR

SALVATION.

Reporter: THEN AFTER

SOME RESEARCH, THEY MADE A

BIG DECISION: PLANTING

CHURCHES FOR JESUS.

WE WANT TO SHARE THE

GOSPEL IN A HOME SETTING,

IN A SCHOOL SETTING, IN A

LIBRARY SETTING, IN

WHATEVER KIND OF SETTING

THEY CAN FIND, IN A PARK,

WHATEVER, TO SHARE THE

GOSPEL.

LET PEOPLE SEE JESUS IN

THEM.

Reporter: ROBERTS

FAMILIARIZED THEMSELVES

WITH THE LOCAL PEOPLE.

THEY TRAVELLED FROM ONE

PLACE TO ANOTHER TO

RECRUIT MORE HELPERS.

THEY CAN TEACH ENGLISH.

THEY CAN SHARE THE GOSPEL.

THEY CAN SHARE THEIR

FAITH.

THEY CAN BECOME GOOD

FRIENDS WITH SOME OF THE

LOCAL KIDS AND TEENAGERS

THAT ARE THERE.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, OUR

HOPE IS WHEN THAT

FRIENDSHIP IS BUILT, THAT

THEY WILL START BRINGING

THEM TO THE CHURCHES THAT

WE ARE ALSO PLANTING AT

THE SAME TIME.

Reporter: RICHARD'S

DAUGHTER IS EXCITED TO

SERVE JESUS IN TAIWAN.

I JUST FELT LIKE I WAS

SO HAPPY AND GRATEFUL TO

MY PARENTS THAT THEY MOVED

US HERE TO BECOME

MISSIONARIES BECAUSE I

FELT, LIKE, I GOT TO -- I

GOT TO WAKE UP EVERY DAY

AND PARTICIPATE IN

DIFFERENT THINGS THAT GOD

WAS DOING IN OUR LIVES.

Reporter: GRADUALLY

YOUNGER TAIWANESE ARE

EXPERIENCING CHURCH.

FOR MANY OF THEM, JESUS

ONLY BELONGS TO THE WEST.

SOME AMERICANS HAVE LEFT

THEIR HOMES AND ASSIST IN

THE MISSION.

THIS IS IN SOUTH

GEORGIA, AND I JUST FELT,

OKAY, GOD, I'M BEING

CALLED TO THE ASIAN

PEOPLE, AND I LOVE IT.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT HERE.

I LOVE THE CULTURE, AND I

LOVE THE PEOPLE.

Reporter: LISA AND

HER TEAM OFTEN PLAY GAMES

AND SHARE FOOD WITH THE

KIDS.

THE CHILDREN ALWAYS HAVE A

GREAT TIME.

OVER TIME THE CHURCH BEGAN

TO DEVELOP BIGGER GOALS.

THEY STARTED TO RECRUIT

STUDENTS FROM U.S.

COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES.

AMERICAN STUDENTS WERE

INSPIRED BY THE ROBERTS.

THEY BELIEVE THE LORD PUT

THEM IN THIS MINISTRY FOR

SPECIAL PURPOSES.

GOD GAVE ME A DREAM OF

ME RIDING A BIKE IN

TAIWAN.

SO I CAME ON OVER TO

TAIWAN.

I FIGURED IT WOULD BE KIND

OF SILLY NOT TO.

Reporter: IN

ADDITION, THE STAFF

UNDERSTANDS THIS IS AN

OPPORTUNE TIME FOR

TAIWANESE TO HEAR ABOUT

CHRIST.

THE GOSPEL IS REALLY

IMPORTANT HERE BECAUSE THE

PEOPLE ARE LOST.

THEY MAY THINK IT IS GOING

TO GET THEM INTO HEAVEN,

BUT WITHOUT JESUS AND

PROCLAIMING THAT HE IS

THEIR SAVIOR, IT IS NOT

GOING TO DO ANY GOOD.

IT IS HURTFUL SEEING

PEOPLE TRYING TO BE GOOD,

THINKING THEY'RE GOING TO

GET TO HEAVEN, AND IN THE

END THEY MAY NOT.

Reporter: NOTHING CAN

REPLACE THEIR FAITH IN THE

LORD AND DEDICATION TO THE

MINISTRY.

IN THE LONG RUN, BESIDES

THEIR HARD WORK AND

DEDICATION, ROBERTS AND

THE TEAM BELIEVE PRAYER

WILL CHANGE THE LIVES OF

MILLIONS IN TAIWAN.

MUNG FE LI, CBN NEWS.

George: UP NEXT IN

UGANDA, CHILD SACRIFICE IS

A THRIVING INDUSTRY.

WE'LL MEET THE COURAGEOUS

PASTOR WHO IS FIGHTING THE

EVIL AND HEALING THE

SURVIVORS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

GEORGE, AS YOU KNOW, EACH

YEAR HUNDREDS OF UGANDAN

CHILDREN ARE KIDNAPPED AND

MURDERED AS PART OF A

HUMAN SACRIFICE BUSINESS.

George: IT IS

UNBELIEVABLE.

BUT I MET WITH A PASTOR

WHO IS TEAMING UP WITH

POLICE AND POLITICIANS TO

STOP THIS BRUTAL PRACTICE.

WE WANT TO WARN YOU THAT

SOME OF THE CONTENT IS

DISTURBING.

HERE IS MY EXCLUSIVE STORY

FROM UGANDA'S CAPITAL CITY

OF KOMPALA.

> IT IS A LITTLE AFTER

2:00 IN THE MORNING, ABOUT

AN HOUR'S DRIVE SOUTH OF

KOMPALA.

CBN NEWS HAS JOINED

UNDERCOVER DETECTIVES,

ARMED POLICE, AND A

PASTOR, HUNTING FOR A

WITCH DOCTOR ACCUSED OF

KIDNAPPING AND KILLING

CHILDREN.

THE WITCH DOCTORS

BELIEVE WHEN YOU KIDNAP A

CHILD, YOU GET WEALTH, YOU

GET PROTECTION.

George: THIS PASTOR

LEADS THE SEARCH.

HE RUNS A CHILD CARE

MINISTRIES, A CHRISTIAN

EFFORT TO STAMP OUT CHILD

SACRIFICE IN UGANDA.

HE DESCRIBES THE WITCH

DOCTORS' BRUTAL RITUALS.

WHEN THEY GET A CHILD,

MOST TIMES THEY CUT THE

NECK.

THEY TAKE THE BLOOD OUT.

THEY CUT THE GENITALS OR

ANY BODY ORGANS THAT THE

SPIRITS WANT.

IN A SENSE, IT INVOLVES

THE CHILD DYING.

George: A FEW HOURS

IN, THE TRAIL FOR THE

KILLER GOES COLD.

PASTOR PETERS SAYS THESE

BRUTAL CRIMES HAPPEN

ALMOST EACH MONTH.

THERE VERY FEW WHO

SURVIVE.

MOST OF THEM DIE.

I HAD HIGH HOPES AND

DREAMS FOR CLIVE.

George: RACHEL'S

THREE-YEAR-OLD SON, CLIVE,

DISAPPEARED JUNE 2, 2015,

WHILE PLAC I PLAYING IN THE

BACKYARD OF THEIR HOME.

CBN NEWS MET HER THE DAY

POLICE TOLD HER WHAT

HAPPENED TO HER SON.

I HAVE NEVER EVEN HEARD

OF CHILD SACRIFICE.

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT

THE PHRASE MEANT.

George: THIS

DETECTIVE TOOK US TO THE

SPOT, NOT TOO FAR FROM HIM

HOME, WHERE THEY FOUND

CLIVE'S REMAINS, IN HIS

PIT TOILET, FILLED WITH

HUMAN FECES.

HE SAID THE KEY SUSPECT

TURNED OUT TO BE HER

NEIGHBOR, A WEALTHY

BUSINESSMAN WHO ALLEGEDLY

HIRED TWO MEN TO KIDNAP

AND MUTILATE CLIVE'S BODY,

BELIEVING THAT THE ACT

WOULD BRING GOOD LUCK TO

HIS NEW HOTEL PROJECT.

THE DETECTIVE SAID THE

SUSPECT PAID THE

EQUIVALENT OF $1400 FOR

CLIVE'S LIFE.

HOW COULD SOMEONE BE

ABLE TO SACRIFICE A

3-YEAR-OLD KID?

George: CHILD

SACRIFICE IN UGANDA TODAY

IS SO SERIOUS AND

WIDESPREAD THAT THE

GOVERNMENT HAS SET UP AN

ANTI-CHILD SACRIFICE AND

HUMAN TRAFFICKING

TASKFORCE.

THIS CHIEF SAYS IN

ADDITION TO DECAPITATION,

WITCH DOCTORS OFTEN SLICE

THE CHILD'S TONGUE AND MIX

IT WITH HERBS FOR SPECIAL

POWERS.

THE TONGUE IS USED

AGAINST ENEMIES.

George: MIKE IS

UGANDA'S TOP LAW

ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL,

EQUIVALENT OF AMERICA'S

ATTORNEY-GENERAL.

HE SAYS SUPERSTITION AND

THE DESIRE TO GET RICH

QUICK CONTRIBUTE TO THE

HIGH CHILD SACRIFICE RATES

IN HIS COUNTRY.

THE CONNECTION IS THESE

WITCH DOCTORS COME AND

TELL PEOPLE WHO WANT TO

GET RICH THAT IN ORDER TO

GET RICH, YOU NEED TO

SACRIFICE HUMAN BLOOD.

George: THESE TWO BEST

FRIENDS ARE FORTUN FORTUNATE TO

BE ALIVE, BUT BEAR THE

PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL

SCARS OF THEIR PAST.

THE THREE ARE CHILDSACRIFICE RVIVS.

A FEW YEARS BACK, CANANI

AND HIS YE-O

SIST WERTAED

TH TRIEDO HIS NECK WHERE

DRAIN S D. FNTED,D WHEN I

REED CNSCIOUSNES

FOUND MY SIST DEAD.

G TWO MEN

ATTACKED THIS MAN ON HIS

WAY HOME FROM SCHOOL.

IEDTOCREAM FOR

RENT BUT MY VOICE

WAS NOT STRONG ENOUGH FOR

THEM TO HEAR HIM.

rge:EYC

HIS AND THEN

CASTRATED.

EMNED A COMA FO

TWO MONTHS AFTER HIS MORAL

MIRACULOUS RESCUE.

THIS MAN HAD TO HAVEIS

GENITALS RECONSTRUCTED

WITH SKIN FROM HIS

FOREARM.

THE BOYS SAY THEY

ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER TO

LOOK PAST THEIR PHYSICAL

CHALLENGES.

GOD IS HELPING US IN

MANY DIFFERENT WAYS.

WHEN WE THINK ABOUT WHAT

HAPPENED TO US, WE PRAY

AND ASK GOD THAT THIS

NEVER HAPPEN TO ANYBODY

ELSE.

George: THE THREE

BOYS ARE NOW UNDER PASTOR

PETERS' CARE.

THEY ARE PROVIDING

LONG-TERM FINANCIAL AND

MEDICAL CARE FOR SURVIVORS

OF CHILD SACRIFICE.

WE WANT TO SAV SEE THAT THE

LIFE OF A CHILD WHO HAS

SURVIVED, THAT THEY'RE

FINANCIALLY SUPPORTED, AND

THEY ARE ABLE TO HEAL FROM

THE INJURIES, AND THEY CAN

HAVE A LIFE AFTER THAT.

George: RACHEL SAYS

LIFE WITHOUT CLIVE WILL

NEVER BE THE SAME.

STILL, SHE HAS A MESSAGE

FOR THE MEN WHO BRUTALLY

MURDERED HER 3-YEAR-OLD

SON.

BECAUSE OF MY FAITH IN

JESUS, I BELIEVE IN SECOND

CHANCES, AND I WOULD GIVE

IT TO THEM BECAUSE THERE

IS NOTHING I CAN DO TO

BRING CLIVE BACK.

MY MESSAGE TO THEM IS

CONFESS YOUR SINS AND COME

TO THE LORD, BECAUSE WHEN

YOU COME TO THE LORD, HE

WILL FORGIVE YOUR SINS.

Wendy: GEORGE, I

CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IS

HAPPENING IN TODAY'S

WORLD.

George: YEAH.

AND IT'S NOT JUST IN

UGANDA, BUT IT IS ACROSS

AFRICA.

A LOT OF COUNTRIES

SACRIFICE GOATS.

Wendy: THEY NEED OUR

PRAYERS.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

George: FINALLY ON

THE BROADCAST THIS WEEK,

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

RUNNERS FROM AROUND THE

WORLD CONVERGED IN

JERUSALEM FOR THE CITY'S
