MEDDLING IN LAST YEAR'S

ELECTION.

WE'LL SHOW YOU WHAT IS

AHEAD IN THE

INVESTIGATION.

PLUS A CBN EXCLUSIVE, OUR

TEAM TALKS WITH WHITE

HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY SEAN

SPICER.

ENGLAND IS NOT GOING TO

THAT IS THE FUTURE.

Efrem: SEE WHY SOME

ARE SAYING THE END OF

BRITAIN AS WE KNOW IT IS

AT HAND.

> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

THE LEADING REPUBLICAN AND

DEMOCRAT ON THE SENATE

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE

HAVE PLEDGED TO GET TO THE

BOTTOM OF RUSSIA'S

INTERFERENCE IN LAST

YEAR'S ELECTION.

SENATOR MARK WARNER OF

VIRGINIA SAYS SOME OF THE

TACTICS USED BY RUSSIA TO

MEDDLE IN THE ELECTION

WOULD SHAKE UP ANYONE WHO

BELIEVES IN AMERICAN

DEMOCRACY.

HE AND SENATOR RICHARD

BYRD OF NORTH CAROLINA

SPOKE TO REPORTERS AHEAD

OF OF TODAY'S

CONGRESSIONAL HEARING.

THE HEARING WILL ADDRESS

WAY THE KREMLIN USED

TECHNOLOGY TO SPREAD FALSE

INFORMATION.

> THE PRESIDENT IS

PLACING THE SPOTLIGHT ON

DRUG ADDICTION AND THE

OPIOID EPIDEMIC.

HE HAS TAPPED NEW JERSEY

GOVERNOR CHRIS CHRISTIE TO

LOOK AT THE PROBLEM.

Reporter: THE

NATION'S OPIOID ADDICTION

IS KILLING TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE EVERY

YEAR.

THE C.D.C. ESTIMATES THAT

33,000 DIED BECAUSE OF AN

OPIOID OVERDOSE IN 2015.

IT SAYS 91 PEOPLE IN THE

U.S. DIE EVERY DAY FROM

SUCH DRUGS.

THAT IS WHY THE PRESIDENT

IS STEPPING UP EFFORTS TO

COMBAT THE CRISIS.

President Trump: THEY

IS A TOTAL EPIDEMIC, AND I

THINK IT IS PROBABLY

ALMOST UNTALKED ABOUT

COMPARED TO THE SEVERITY

THAT WE'RE WITNESSING.

Reporter: ON

WEDNESDAY, THE PRESIDENT

AND COMMISSION HEAD CHRIS

CHRISTIE MET WITH

ADDICTION ADVOCATES TO

HEAR THEIR PERSONAL

STORIES AND POLICY

PROPOSALS.

WE TALK ABOUT CANCER.

WE TALK ABOUT HEART

DISEASE.

WE TALK ABOUT DIABETES.

AND WE'RE NOT AFRAID TO

TALK ABOUT IT.

BUT PEOPLE ARE AFRAID AND

ASHAMED TO TALK ABOUT DRUG

ADDICTION.

Reporter: OPIOIDS ARE

POWERFUL, HABIT-FORMING

NARCOTICS.

THEY GO BY NAMES OF

PERCOCET AND OXYCONTIN.

OFTEN THE ADDICTION STARTS

WITH PRESCRIPTION

PAINKILLERS, AND THEN

PEOPLE TRANSITION TO

HEROIN, WHICH IS CHEAPER.

PEOPLE LIKE 21-YEAR-OLD

CAITLIN WEEMS.

AND UNFORTUNATELY,

LATER ON IN HER STORY,

SOMEONE SAID, WHY NOT TRY

HEROIN.

IT IS THE SAME THING.

WITHIN FOUR MONTHS, SHE

DIED OF A HEROIN OVER

DOSE.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT SAID THE NEW

GROUP WILL WORK WITH LAW

ENFORCEMENT AND FIBERS AND

ADDICTS TO DEVELOP

TREATMENT.

AND TO STOP THE FLOW OF

DRUGS ACROSS THE BORDER.

BUT CRITICS FEAR THE

PRESIDENT WILL NOT DO

ENOUGH.

THAT'S BECAUSE THE G.O.P.

HEALTH CARE BILL THAT

RECENTLY STALLED WOULD END

MEDICAID THAT STOPS DRUG

TREATMENT.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: A FEDERAL

JUDGE IN HAWAII HAS

INDEFINITELY EXTENDED AN

ORDER TO BLOCK PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S REVISED TRAVEL BAN

JUST HOURS BEFORE IT WAS

SET TO TAKE EFFECT.

HAWAII BECAME THE FIRST

STATE TO FILE A LAWSUIT TO

STOP THE PRESIDENT'S ORDER

ON IMMIGRATION EARLIER

THIS MONTH.

THE ORDER BANS NEW VISAS

FOR PEOPLE FROM SIX

MUSLIM-MAJORITY COUNTRIES,

AND TEMPORARILY SHUTS DOWN

THE U.S. REFUGEE PROGRAM.

HAWAII CLAIMS THAT THE

ORDER IS UNCONSTITUTION.

BUT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

SAYS HAWAII HAS NOT PROVED

HOW IT IS HARMED BY THE

REVISED TRAVEL BAN.

> HE SPEAKS FOR THE

WHITE HOUSE, AND LAST

NIGHT SEAN SPICER WENT ON

THE RECORD WITH "BRODY AND

BROWDER."

Reporter: HEALTH CARE

COULD BE BACK ON THE

TABLE.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS ARE

CONSIDERING ANOTHER VOTE,

POSSIBLY AS SOON AS NEXT

WEEK, AFTER THE AMERICAN

HEALTH CARE ACT FAILED ON

THE FLOOR LAST WEEK.

SEAN SPICER EXPLAINED ON

"BRODY AND BROWDER," CBN'S

LIVE POLITICAL SHOW.

A LOT OF FOLKS STARTED

TO CALL THE PRESIDENT WITH

IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS ON

HOW TO GET THINGS BACK ON

TRACK.

Reporter: SPICER

ADDING MANY G.O.P.

LAWMAKERS WERE ELECTED ON

THE PROMISE OF REPEALING

AND REPLACING OBAMACARE.

AND I THINK, DAVID,

AFTER THEY WENT HOME FOR

THE WEEKEND, SPENT A

LITTLE TIME WITH THEIR

CONSTITUENTS, THEY ARE

EAGER TO COME BACK TO THE

TABLE AND GET A DEAL ON

THIS.

Reporter: AND ANOTHER

THING WE ASKED HIM ABOUT

WAS RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.

MANY EVANGELICALS WANT TO

SEE HIM SIGN A RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY EXECUTIVE ORDER

THAT WOULD ALLOW THEM TO

PRACTICE THEIR FAITH,

INCLUDING IN THE

WORKPLACE, WITHOUT FEAR OF

RETRIBUTION.

THEY ALSO REMEMBER THE

PROMISE HE MADE ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL TO REPEAL

THE JOHNSON AMENDMENT,

WHICH KEEPS CHURCHES FROM

SPEAKING OUT POLITICALLY.

IT IS SOMETHING I THINK

YOU'RE GOING TO CONTINUE

TO SEE ACTION ON HERE IN

THE WHITE HOUSE.

WE'VE BEEN VERY BUSY WITH

A LOT OF OTHER THINGS, BUT

REST ASSURED THAT THE

PRESIDENT'S COMMITMENT TO

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, AND

PARTICULARLY THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT, IS ALIVE AND

WELL.

Reporter: SO WHAT IT

IS LIKE BEING THE WHITE

HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY?

WE ASKED HIM ABOUT ALL OF

THE ATTENTION HE GETS

BEING IN THE SPOTLIGHT.

YOU'RE ONE OF THE MOST

RECOGNIZABLE FACES IN THE

COUNTRY NOW.

WHEN YOU GO OUT IN PUBLIC,

DO YOU FLY UNDER THE

RADAR, OR DO PEOPLE HAVE

SOME CHOICE WORDS FOR YOU?

I WOULD SAY THIS:

PROBABLY 99% OF THE PEOPLE

WHO APPROACH ME HAVE VERY

POSITIVE THINGS.

I THINK ONE OF THE NICEST

AND MOST KINDEST THINGS

YOU CAN EVER HEAR IS WHEN

SOMEONE TELLS YOU THEY ARE

PRAYING FOR YOU.

THAT IS THE MOST SOMEBODY

COULD EVER GIVE ANOTHER

INDIVIDUAL, TO TELL THEM

THEY'RE THINKING OF THEM

AND THEY'RE PRYING TO GOD

THAT YOU SUCCEED AND THIS

COUNTRY SUCCEEDS AND THIS

PRESIDENT SUCCEEDS.

AND THAT IS PROBABLY THE

MOST REASSURING PART OF

THE JOB.

BUT ONCE IN A WHILE, THERE

IS CLEARLY A COUPLE OF BAD

APPLES THAT I TRY TO PRAY

FOR BECAUSE I RECOGNIZE

NOT EVERYONE -- EVERYBODY

HAS A RIGHT TO EXPRESS

THEMSELVES UNDER OUR

CONSTITUTION, AND WE

WELCOME THAT, WE CHERISH

THAT, BUT AT TIMES IT MAY

NOT BE THE MOST

APPROPRIATE VENUE TO DO

THAT.

David: I KNOW YOU'RE

A DEDICATED CATHOLIC, AND

THIS CAN BE A ROLLER

COASTER.

HOW IS THAT GOING?

NUMBER ONE, WE'RE IN

THE SEASON OF LENT.

THIS IS A GREAT TIME,

BETWEEN PRAYER AND

FASTING, AND IT IS A

REMINDER DURING THESE 40

DAYS OF A COMMITMENT TO A

HIGHER CALLING.

BUT, AGAIN, I THINK ONE OF

THE THINGS IT DOES IS IT

STRENGTHENS YOUR FAITH.

IT IS ONE PLACE THAT YOU,

DESPITE ALL OF THE

NEGATIVE TWEETS AND THE

COMMENTS THAT PEOPLE ARE

TALKING ABOUT, I THINK

THERE IS ONE PLACE YOU CAN

LOOK TO TO GAIN STRENGTH

AND CONFIDENCE AND WISDOM

AND GUIDANCE.

Reporter: THERE IS NO

DOUBT HE IS GOING TO HAVE

TO LEAN ON HIS FAITH AS A

SPOKESMAN FOR A WHITE

HOUSE WITH AN AGGRESSIVE

AGENDA THAT INCLUDES TAX

REFORM, REBUILDING

AMERICA'S INFRASTRUCTURE.

AND DEPENDING ON WHAT

COULD HAPPEN NEXT WEEK,

POSSIBLY HEALTH CARE.

REPORTING IN WASHINGTON,

JENNA BROWDER, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: 13 PEOPLE ARE

DEAD FOLLOWING A BUS

CRASH.

THAT BUS WAS CARRYING A

CHURCH CHOIR AND COLLIDED

HEAD-ON WITH A PICKUP

TRUCK.

THERE WERE 14 PEOPLE ON

BOARD HAD ATTENDED FIRST

BAPTIST CHURCH IN TEXAS.

THE TRUCK DRIVER AND ONE

OF THE PASSENGER FROM THE

BUS SURVIVED.

BOTH ARE CURRENTLY IN THE

HOSPITAL.

THE PASTOR OF THE CHURCH

IS ASKING FOR THE PRAYER.

I'M VERY GRATEFUL FOR

THE OUTPOURING.

I'VE RECEIVED MESSAGES

FROM PASTORS IN DIFFERENT

PARTS OF THE STATE.

WE NEED A LOT OF PRAYER.

Efrem: THAT CHOIR WAS

RETURNING FROM A RETREAT.

> NORTH CAROLINA

LAWMAKERS ARE ALL SET TO

VOTE ON THE STATE'S

CONTROVERSIAL BATHROOM

BILL.

ROY COOPER SAYS DEMOCRATS

HAVE AGREED ON LEGISLATION

WITH REPUBLICANS.

G.O.P. LEADERS ANNOUNCED

WEDNESDAY THE NEW

LEGISLATION WOULD BE

DEBATED AND VOTED ON, BUT

DID NOT CONFIRM WHETHER

THERE WERE ENOUGH VOTES

FOR IT TO PASS.

COOPER SAYS IT IS NOT A

PERFECT DEAL, BUT WOULD

REPAIR THE STATE'S

REPUTATION.

> COMING UP, IT IS A

PLACE WITH MORE THAN 100

SHAR'IA LAW COURTS, AND

NON-MUSLIMS ARE BEING

TARGETED FOR VIOLENCE.

HERE IS THE SHOCKER: IT IS

NOT IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

FIND OUT WHERE IT IS, WHEN

WE RETURN.

Efrem: LAST WEEK'S

TERROR ATTACK BY A

BRITISH-BORN MUSLIM PROVES

AGAIN A RADICAL COMMUNITY

EXISTS WITHIN BRITAIN.

ITS GOAL IS TO CREATE AN

ISLAMIC NATION.

BUT CBN HAS FOUND A LESS

CRITICAL FORCE COULD

LIKELY ACHIEVE THAT

OBJECTIVE LONG BEFORE GUNS

AND VIOLENCE EVER COULD.

DALE HURD BRINGS US THIS

STORY FROM LONDON.

Reporter: THIS IS NOT

KARACHI.

IT IS LONDON.

BRITAIN'S POLICY OF MASS

IMMIGRATION HAS BROUGHT

WHAT ONE EXPERT IS CALLING

DEMOGRAPHIC UPHEAVAL TO

THE UNITED KINGDOM.

SOME DAY THE WHITE

NATIVE ENGLISH WILL BE A

MINORITY IN THEIR OWN

COUNTRY.

IT IS JUST A MATTER OF

WHEN.

Reporter: AND THE

NATIVE WELSH AND THE

SCOTS.

DAVID COLEMAN IS A

UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR IN

DEMGRAPHY THE AT OX

FORWARD.

OXFORD.

IT SIMPLY MEANS THE END

OF BRITAIN, AND BY THAT, I

MEAN THE END OF BRITAIN AS

WE KNOW IT.

THE CHANGE IN THE NUMBER

OF PEOPLE, AND

PARTICULARLY THE CHANGE IN

THE ORIGINS OF THE PEOPLE,

IN THEIR RELIGION, IN

THEIR CULTURAL BACKGROUND

AND EVERYTHING, WOULD MAKE

BRITAIN UNRECOGNIZABLE

COMPARED TO THE PRESENT

TIME.

Reporter: IMMIGRATION

CAN STRENGTHEN IS NATION,

BUT SEVERAL WESTERN

NATIONS, INCLUDING THE

U.S., ARE DEBATING THE

WISDOM OF LARGE SCALE

IMMIGRATION FROM THE

ISLAMIC WORLD.

AND EXPERTS ARE ASKING

WHAT WILL HAPPEN AS MUSLIM

NUMBERS CONTINUE TO GROW

IN AN OFFICIALLY CHRISTIAN

BRITAIN.

IN THE MASTERPIECE

"CHILDREN OF MEN," BRITAIN

IN 2027 IS WRACKED BY

ETHNIC DIVISION AND CIVIL

WAR.

MUSLIM-ARMED GANGS FIGHT A

GOVERNMENT THAT IS HUNTING

DOWN AND DEPORTING

IMMIGRANTS AND TRYING TO

MAINTAIN ORDER.

BRITAIN'S FUTURE IS NOT

LIKELY TO BE THIS VIOLENT,

BUT IT MAY NOT BE

PEACEFUL, EITHER.

WHEN THE CHRISTIAN

ACTIVIST GROUP "BRITAIN

FIRST" TOOK LARGE CROSSES

THROUGH THE ENGLISH TOWN

OF LUTEN LAST YEAR, ANGRY

MUSLIMS CONFRONTED THEM.

IS IT YOUR COUNTRY?

IT IS OUR COUNTRY.

IT IS A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY.

THIS IS A CHRISTIAN

COUNTRY.

YOU JEALOUS?

YOU JEALOUS WE'RE TAKING

OVER?

IT IS BECOMING

INCREASINGLY ISLAMIC, AND

RURAL AREAS ARE BECOMING

INCREASINGLY ENGLISH, AND

THERE IS A RETREAT AWAY

FROM THESE TWO POPULATIONS

FROM EACH OTHER.

THAT IS THE FUTURE THAT IS

ALREADY HAPPENING.

Reporter: POLICY

ANALYST GEORGE IGLER SAYS

HE DOES NOT BELIEVE IT

WILL TAKE 40 OR 50 YEARS

BEFORE THE NATIVE BRITISH

ARE A MINORITY.

THIS IS NONSENSE.

IT IS GOING TO BE MUCH

SOONER.

AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHEN

YOU LOOK AT PLACES LIKE

LUTEN, WE ALREADY HAVE AN

UNDERSTANDING, WE ALREADY

HAVE A WINDOW INTO WHAT

THE FUTURE WILL BE LIKE.

THERE IS GOING TO BE

VIOLENCE AND SEXUAL

VIOLENCE AGAINST

NON-MUSLIMS.

IT IS GOING TO BE SHAR'IA

LAW.

Reporter: MUSLIMS ARE

STILL SAID TO BE ONLY 5%

OF THE POPULATION, AND

SOME EXPERTS INSIST THEY

WILL NEVER BE THE MAJORITY

IN BRITAIN.

IMMIGRATION ALSO INCLUDES

CHRISTIANS FROM AFRICA.

PROFESSOR COLEMAN, WHO

STRESSED HE IS NOT

ANTI-MUSLIM, BUT IS SIMPLY

LOOKING AT STATISTICS,

NEVERTHELESS SAID THE

CHANGES COULD BE DRASTIC.

THIS IS ALREADY

MANIFEST BECAUSE THERE ARE

STRONG CURRENTS IN MODERN

SOCIETY WHICH WISH TO SEE

MUSLIM APPROACHES TO DIET,

TO MARRIAGE, AND WOULD

LIKE TO SEE SHAR'IA LAW

INCORPORATED FORMALLY INTO

BRITISH LAW OR SOME

EXTREMIST GROUPS WOULD

LIKE TO SEE SHAR'IA LAW

REPLACE BRITISH LAW.

Reporter: MORE THAN

HALF A MILLION IMMIGRANTS

IMMIGRATED TO THE UNITED

KINGDOM IN 2016.

OPEN BORDERS IS ONE THE

BIGGEST REASONS PEOPLE

VOTED PO FOR BREXIT.

BUT COLEMAN SAYS IT WILL

NOT STOP IMMIGRATION.

GREAT BRITAIN WAS ALREADY

A FACTORY FOR TERRORISTS

BEFORE LAST WEEK'S ATTACK

ON WESTMINSTER BRIDGE BY A

BRITISH-BORN MUSLIM.

AT LEAST 850 BRITISH

CITIZENS HAVE LEFT THE

U.K. TO JOIN ISIS.

WE'RE THE ONLY WESTERN

COUNTRY THAT HAVE SHAR'IA

COURTS.

THEY'RE DEALING WITH

MARRIAGES AND DIVORCE, AND

EVEN CRIMINAL DIVORCES.

AND THEY'RE MARRYING

CHILDREN.

Reporter: IF CURRENT

TRENDS CONTINUE, BRITISH

SCHOOLS WILL CHANGE WHEN

MOST OF THE PUPILS ARE

FROM NON-BRITISH

BACKGROUNDS, AS WILL THE

MILITARY AND ALLIANCES.

ENGLAND IS NOT GOING TO

BE ENGLAND ANYMORE.

Reporter: THE ENGLISH

DEFENSE LEAGUE, IN ITS

STREET PROTEST AGAINST THE

ISLAMIZATION OF BRITAIN

USED TO SING, "WE WANT OUR

COUNTRY BACK."

IF CURRENT DEMOGRAPHIC

TRENDS CONTINUE, IT MAY BE

TOO LATE FOR THEM.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS,

LONDON.

Efrem: UP NEXT, WE'LL

TAKE YOU TO ONE OF THE

FASTEST GROWING CHURCHES

IN AMERICA.

SEE HOW YOUNG CHINESE

IMMIGRANTS ARE SPREADING

THE GOSPEL.

Efrem: ONE OF THE

FASTEST GROWING CHURCHES

IN AMERICA IS THE

MANDARIN-SPEAKING CHINESE

CHURCH, FROM LARGE URBAN

AREAS TO SMALL RURAL

COMMUNITIES, YOUNG CHINESE

IMMIGRANTS ARE COMING TO

CHRIST, AND THEIR LIVES

ARE BEING TRANSFORMED FOR

THE BETTER.

MUNG FE LI HAS THIS STORY.

Reporter: THIS

REENACTMENT SHOWS THE

FRUSTRATION AND ANGER THAT

IS COMMON IN MANY

FAMILIES.

CHINESE-AMERICAN PARENTS

OFTEN FIND COMMUNICATING

WITH THEIR CHILDREN

CHALLENGING.

YOUNG JA MOVED TO THE

UNITED STATES WHEN SHE WAS

13.

THAT'S WHEN THE

RELATIONSHIP WITH HER

PARENTS BECOME MORE

TROUBLESOME.

THE FAMILY RULES ARE

VERY STRICT.

IT'S LIKE EVERYTHING I DO

SUCCESSFULLY, I'M SUPPOSED

TO BE THAT WAY.

IF I'M GETTING A 98, I

WOULD PROBABLY GET

PUNISHED.

Reporter: SHE HAD TO

LEARN TO OBEY THE RULES IN

A HARD WAY, AND COULDN'T

QUITE UNDERSTAND WHY HER

PARENTS TREATED HER THAT

WAY.

MY FATHER IS A MILITARY

MEMBER, WHEN HE WAS

YOUNGER.

SO THE WAY HOW HE WAS

TRAINING ME IS LIKE THE

MILITARY STYLE.

Reporter: DESPITE THE

CONFLICT, YOUNG JA NEVER

DOUBTED HER PARENTS' LOVE,

AND THEY ENCOURAGED HER TO

FIND HER PASSION.

GRADUALLY SHE TOOK UP

DANCING AND SPENT MUCH

TIME PRACTICING IN THE

STUDIO AND PERFORMING.

THE BIGGEST MOTIVATION

FOR ME TO WORK REALLY

HARD, TO GETTING TO THE

EVENTS CLASS AND TO WEAR

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COSTUME

IN THE WHOLE DANCE SCHOOL.

AND LATER ON, WHEN I

STARTED TO GO ON STAGE AND

TO PERFORM THE NUMBERS,

THE FLOWERS, THE BIG

APPLAUSES, YOU KNOW, AND

WHAT THE THE AUDIENCE SAY

ABOUT US BECAME REALLY

ATTRACTIVE TO US.

Reporter: LIFE WAS

GOOD AND SHE FELL IN LOVE

WITH PAUL.

SHE PLACED THE SAME DEGREE

OF EXPECTATION ON PAUL AS

HER PARENTS PLACED ON HER.

SOON EVERYTHING CHANGED

AND HER RELATIONSHIP BROKE

APART.

BOTH OF US WEREN'T

TALKING TO EACH OTHER.

WE WERE MAD AT EACH OTHER,

AND I WAS THE WAITING FOR

HER TO APOLOGIZE TO ME

FIRST.

IT WAS PAINFUL.

Reporter: THEIR

MARRIAGE AND FAMILY LIFE

WAS ABOUT TO COLLAPSE.

THEIR DAUGHTER, CRYSTAL,

WAS TRAUMATIZED BY THE

CONSTANT FIGHTING AND

ARGUMENTS.

I GET REALLY KIND OF

MAD AND KIND OF SAD AT THE

SAME TIME BECAUSE MY

PRAYER IS I DON'T THINK MY

DAD SHOULD TREAT MY MOM

LIKE THAT.

Reporter: IN THE

MIDDLE OF THE TROUBLE AND

THE UNCERTAINTY, THEY

BEGAN TO ATTEND LOCAL

CHINESE CHURCH SERVICES.

THE PASTOR SHOWED THEM AND

OTHER YOUNG COUPLES HOW TO

BUILD A STRONG AND

FAITHFUL FAMILY IN GOD'S

WAY.

THERE ARE ALWAYS NEW

PEOPLE COMING IN, PEOPLE

LOOKING FOR A COMMUNITY TO

BELONG IN, AND LOOKING FOR

PEOPLE THEY CAN CONNECT

WITH.

AS A CHURCH, WE HAVE AN

OPPORTUNITY TO REACH OUT

TO THEM WITH THE GOSPEL

AND INTRODUCE THEM TO

CHRIST.

MANY OF THEM HAVE NEVER

BEEN PART OF A CHURCH

BEFORE, AND WE CAN CONNECT

WITH THEM AND HELP THEM TO

KNOW JESUS.

Reporter: IN 2016,

THE UNITED NATIONS GRANTED

ALMOST 41,000 IMMIGRANT

VISAS TO MAINLAND-BORN

CHINESE CITIZENS.

AND A NUMBER OF CHINESE

CHURCHES IN THE UNITED

STATES GREW FROM 1200 IN

2006 TO 1600 BY 2011.

SOME CHURCHES ARE COMING

TOGETHER TO MORE

EFFECTIVELY REACH YOUNG

CHINESE.

WE'RE WORKING WITH

PEOPLE IN OUR CHURCH AND

OTHER CHURCHES.

THERE ARE FOUR CHURCHES IN

OUR AREA ALL WORKING TO

REACH THIS COMMUNITY.

AND WE ALSO PARTNER WITH

OTHER LOCAL AMERICAN

CHURCHES AS WELL.

AND WE'RE PART OF A LOCAL

CHURCH NETWORK THAT

SUPPORTS US AND CONNECTS

US WITH OTHER CHURCH

LEADERS AND MINISTRIES.

AND WE ALL PARTNER

TOGETHER TO REACH THE

CHINESE COMMUNITY, TO

REALLY BRING THE GOSPEL TO

THAT GROUP.

Reporter: GRADUALLY

YUNGJA AND HER HUSBAND

FOUND THEIR PURPOSE AS A

YOUNG COUPLE, AND THEIR

MARRIAGE WAS HEALED.

PRAYING IS LIKE THE

DAILY SPIRITUAL BREATHING,

THE AIR THAT WE NEED EVERY

DAY.

AND READING THE BIBLE,

STUDYING THE BIBLE, IS

LIKE THE FOOD WE INTAKE

EVERY DAY.

Reporter: CRYSTAL WAS

HAPPY THAT JESUS RESTORED

HER PARENTS' MARRIAGE AND

BROUGHT PEACE TO THE

FAMILY AND SPECIAL MEANING

TO HER.

LORD AND GLORY AND

THANKFULNESS.

TODAY JESUS CHANGED ALL

OF US.

WE NEED TO FOLLOW THE LORD

FAITHFULLY AND CONTINUE TO

SERVE HIM.

WE WERE LOST, AND NOW WE

BELONG TO THE SAME FATHER.

Reporter: MUNG FE LI,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: PRAYER IS THE

AIR AND THE WORD OF GOD

IS, INDEED, YOUR FOOD.

STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Efrem: IT IS TIME NOW

Efrem: IT IS TIME NOW

FOR YOUR THURSDAY

THANKFUL.

TODAY I'M THANKFUL FOR

GOD'S TIMING.

THAT SADE SAID, I THOUGHT I'D

SHARE A PRAYER: LORD, HELP

ME TO LOVE AND TREASURE

YOUR TIMING MORE THAN MY

OWN.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS YOU

KNOW BEST THE TIMING AND

SEASON FOR EVERYTHING.

IT IS MY JOB TO FOLLOW

YOUR LEAD.

WITH THAT WORD, MAKE THIS

A THANKFUL THURSDAY.
