I'M MARK MARTIN.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SETTING

HIS SIGHTS ON MORE FOREIGN

POLICY TALKS AFTER MEETING

WITH EGYPT'S PRESIDENT

YESTERDAY.

NEXT ON TO MAR-A-LAGO AND

A TWO-DAY MEETING WITH THE

CHINESE PRESIDENT.

NORTH KOREA'S MISSILE

THREAT WILL TOP THE

AGENDA.

Reporter: MULTIPLE

MISSILE LAUNCHES LIKE THIS

LAST MONTH HAVE EVERYONE

CONCERNED ABOUT NORTH

KOREA.

NEW THREATS, AND THE

ERRATIC BEHAVIOR OF JIM KIM

JONG-UN ARE BEING TAKEN

SERIOUSLY.

THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES RESPONDED

BY PASSING A RESOLUTION BY

DENOUNCING

INTERCONTINENTAL WEAPONS

CAPABLE OF CARRYING

MISSILES.

THEY ARE MAKING THREATS TO

TAKE MILITARY ACTION

AGAINST THE UNITED STATES

AND JAPAN AND SOUTH KOREA.

INCREASINGLY ANGERED BY

MILITARY EXERCISES WITH

SOUTH KOREA, NORTH KOREA'S

VICE FOREIGN MINISTER SAYS

HIS COUNTRY IS PREPARED TO

PROTECT ITSELF.

HE SAID, "OUR ARMY HAS ITS

WEAPONS READY, AND IT IS

WATCHING THE U.S. THROUGH

ITS NUCLEAR STRIKE

CAPABILITY, AND THEY WILL

REDUCE US TO RUINS IF THEY

MAKE A MOVE."

WHILE PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS

BLASTED THE COUNTRY FOR

CURRENCY MANIPULATION, HE

IS LOOKING TO THE COUNTRY

FOR HELP IN REINING IN

NORTH KOREA.

NORTH KOREA IS EXPECTED TO

BE ONE OF THE MAIN TOPICS

OF DISCUSSIONS WHEN

PRESIDENT TRUMP MEETS WITH

THE CHINESE PRESIDENT.

CHINA HAS TO COOPERATE.

THIS IS DOWN TO DO WE WANT

TO CONTINUE TO SEE THESE

BALLISTIC MISSILE FROM

NORTH KOREA, OR DOES CHINA

WANT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT

IT?

Reporter:

President Trump:

SAID, QUOTE, "IF CHINA

DOESN'T WANT TO STOP NORTH

KOREA, WE WILL."

THEY HAVE BEEN PUTTING IN

PLACE AN ANTI-MISSILE

SYSTEM KNOWN AS THAAD.

THREE OF THE FOUR MISSILES

LAUNCHED BY NORTH KOREA

LAST MONTH LANDED IN

JAPANESE WATERS.

THE U.S. GOVERNMENT SAYS

THAT WOULD PROTECT OUR

JAPANESE AND SOUTH KOREAN

ALLIES FROM FUTURE NORTH

KOREAN MISSILE AGGRESSION.

BOTH CHINA AND RUSSIA

OPPOSE THE SYSTEM BECAUSE

THEY BELIEVE IT COULD ALSO

BE DIRECTED AGAINST THEM.

IN ADVANCE OF THIS WEEK'S

U.S./CHINA SUMMIT, THE

CHINESE VICE FOREIGN

MINISTER SAID WHEN

PRESIDENT'S TRUMP AND XI

MEET, THEY MUST MANAGE THE

DESTRUCTIVE ATTITUDES.

NIKKI HALEY SAYS THE

PRESSURE WILL BE ON CHINA.

THEY NEED TO PUT

PRESSURE ON NORTH KOREA.

THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT CAN

STOP NORTH KOREA IS CHINA.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Mark: THE FIGHT OVER

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S PICK TO

BECOME THE NEXT JUSTICE ON

SUPREME COURT HAS TURNED

RADIOACTIVE ON CAPITAL

MANAGEMENT.

IT COULON CAPITOL

HILL.

JENNIFER WISHON EXPLAINS.

Jennifer: VOTING

ALONG PARTY LINES, MEMBERS

OF THE SENATE JUDICIARY

COMMITTEE APPROVED NEIL

GORSUCH'S NOMINATION TO

THE SUPREME COURT, SETTING

UP A VOTE, OR MORE

ACCURATELY, A SHOWDOWN IN

THE FULL SENATE LATER THIS

WEEK.

HE HAS CROSSED HIS FIRST

HURTLE, BUT TO ENSURE HE

MAKES IT TO THE BENCH OF

THE SUPREME COURT, IT

LOOKS LIKE REPUBLICANS MAY

HAVE TO USE THE NUCLEAR

ACTION, THAT IS, CHANGE

THE RULES SO GORSUCH CAN

BE APPROVED BY 51 VOTES

INSTEAD OF 60.

MITCHELL McCONNELL HAS

INDICATEDED, HE WILL GO

NUCLEAR IF HE HAS TO.

AND NOW DEMOCRATS HAVE

ENOUGH VOTES TO TRY TO

BLOCK GORSUCH.

SENATOR COONS PUT HIS

PARTY OVER THE TOP.

UNLESS WE'RE ABLE, AS A

PARTY, TO SIT DOWN AND

FILL THE NEXT VACANCY ON

THE COURT I...

Reporter: FOR SOME

DEMOCRATS, RESISTANCE TO

GORSUCH IS PAYBACK FOR

REPUBLICANS NOT HOLDING A

HEARING AT THE 11th HOUR

OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

NOMINEE.

SOME REPUBLICANS FEAR THE

FALLOUT COULD BE

IRREPARABLE AND URGE

McCONNELL TO PRESERVE

THE 60-VOTE RULE.

IT IS A HEAVY DECISION FOR

REPUBLICANS WHO

DESPERATELY WANT TO PUT

GORSUCH ON THE COURT.

WE'RE HEADED TO A WORLD

WHEN YOU DON'T NEED ONE

PERSON FROM THE OTHER SIDE

TO PICK A JUDGE.

AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

THAT MEANS THE JUDGES ARE

GOING TO BE MORE

IDEOLOGICAL, NOT LESS.

IT MEANS THAT EVERY SENATE

SEAT IS GOING TO BE A

REFERENDUM ON THE SUPREME

COURT.

Jennifer: SENATORS

ARE SET TO SQUARE OFF ON

FRIDAY, TO DETERMINE IF

GORSUCH GETS A BLACK ROBE

OR TRUMP HAS TO FIND

ANOTHER NOMINEE.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

THE WHITE HOUSE.

Mark: RUSSIANS ARE

REMEMBERING THOSE KILLED

IN A BOMBING YESTERDAY AT

A ST. PETERSBURG METRO

STATION.

INVESTIGATORS SAY A

SUICIDE BOMBER CARRIED OUT

THE ATTACK.

BUT THEY STILL ARE NOT

TYING IT TO RADICAL ISLAM.

14 PEOPLE DIED AND 45 WERE

WOUNDED IN THE ATTACK.

EVEN THOUGH THE RUSSIANS

ARE NOT CALLING IT A

TERROR ATTACK, ISIS

SUPPORTERS HAVE BEEN

PRAISING THE ATTACK

ONLINE.

> SOME HAITIANS ARE

LIVING IN CAVES AND EATING

POTENTIALLY POISONOUS

PLANTS TO SURVIVE SIX

MONTHS AFTER HURRICAN

MATTHEW DEMOLISHED MUCH OF

THEIR COUNTRY.

THE STORM DESTROYED MOST

OF THE CROPS ON FARMS THAT

SUPPLIED THE FOOD FOR THE

PEOPLE.

MORE ON THIS STORY FROM

FAITH WIRE, INCLUDING A

VIDEO FROM PARENTS AND

THEIR CHILDREN, DESPITE

THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES,

SINGING IN THE CAVES.

> IN THE PHILIPPINES, A

GROWING NUMBER OF CHURCHES

ARE SPEAKING OUT AGAINST

THEIR PRESIDENT'S VIOLENT

WAR ON DRUGS.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS

ISSUED A RARE LETTER

CONDEMNING THE PROTEST

DUTERTE'S BRUTAL MONTHS.

LUCILLE TALUSAN REPORTS

FROM MANILA.

Reporter: ON THE "THE

700 CLUB" IN MANILA, THIS

PASTOR PAINFULLY DESCRIBES

THE HORRIFIC CONDITION OF

HIS SON'S BODY, WHO WAS

VICTIMIZED IN A KILLING.

A WIRE WAS TIED AROUND

HIS NECK, HIS HANDS TIED

AT HIS BACK, AND THERE WAS

A VERY BIG SLASH IN HIS

NECK.

IT WAS SO BIG.

THAT WAS WHEN I BROKE

DOWN.

WHY DID THEY TREAT MY SON

LIKE AN ANIMAL.

Reporter: THE PASTOR

ADMITS HIS SON, A.J., WAS

A DRUG USER, BUT SAYS HE

QUIT DRUGS AND BECAME A

POLICE INFORMANT JUST

WEEKS BEFORE HIS DEATH.

A.J. IS AMONG 8,000 PEOPLE

WHO HAVE DIED SINCE THE

PHILIPPINE PRESIDENT BEGAN

HIS WAR ON DRUGS SEVEN

MONTHS AGO.

MOST OF THE ALLEGED DRUG

USERS WERE DENIED DUE

PROCESS.

IT HAS PROMPTED THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH TO ISSUE A

RARE PASTORAL LETTER,

CONDEMNING THE RISE IN THE

DEATH TOLL.

THEY CALLED THE

GOVERNMENT'S DRUG APPROACH

A REIGN OF TERROR, AIMED

MOSTLY AT THE POOR.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH,

BELIEVING IN THE GIFT OF

LIFE OF EACH AND EVERY

FILIPINO, DIRECTLY

CONFRONTS.

THE INCIDENTS

HAPPENING NOW.

HOW TO SPEAK AND GET OUT

OF THE FEAR THAT IS BEING

PLANTED BECAUSE OF WHAT IS

HAPPENING IN THE COUNTRY.

Reporter: LINDA FEARS

FOR HER LIFE.

SHE SAYS FIVE OF HER

DRUG-DEALING FRIENDS

SURRENDERED TO AUTHORITIES

BUT WERE STILL KILLED.

SHE SAYS POOR PEOPLE LIKE

THEM SHOULD ALSO BE GIVEN

A CHANCE TO CHANGE AND

HAVE A NEW LIFE.

POVERTY IS ONE OF THE MAIN

REASONS WHY THESE MEN AND

WOMEN ARE RESORTING TO

SELLING DRUGS AS THEIR

SOURCE OF INCOME.

AND THIS IS WHAT THE

CHURCH AND HUMAN RIGHTS'

GROUPS ARE CALLING OUT TO

THE GOVERNMENT TO RESORT

TO MORE DIGNIFIED MEANS OF

SOLVING THE DRUG PROBLEM,

WHICH IS PROVIDING BASIC

NEEDS, SUCH AS EDUCATION

AND LIVELIHOOD PROGRAMS.

THE POLICE AND THE

MILITARY ARE HELPING THIS

PASTOR SOLVE HIS SON'S

CASE.

THE PASTOR BELIEVES GOD IS

USING HIS SON'S DEATH AS A

WAKEUP CALL TO AWE ALL

PHILIPPINE NES.

THAT WE SHOULD COME

TOGETHER AND PUT A TOP TO

THESE KILLINGS BECAUSE

THIS KIND OF EVIL ONLY

BEGETS EVIL.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO MY

SON HAS INSPIRED TO BE

MERE ACTIVE.

THE POLICEMEN TEACH VALUES

TO STUDENTS.

LET'S GIVE A CHANCE TO

THE PUSHERS AND THE USERS.

WE BELIEVE THAT EVERYBODY

CAN CHANGE.

THAT IS THE SAME THING WE

BELIEVE THAT THE PRESIDENT

CAN DO.

THAT'S WHAT WE'VE BEEN

PRAYING FOR, THAT

PRESIDENT DUTERTE REALLY

CHANGES THE WAY HE IS

RUNNING THE DRUG WAR.

Reporter: LUCILLE

TALUSAN, CBN NEWS, MANILA.

Mark: COM COMING UP, HOW

THE BIG THREE ARE COVERTLY

POISONING THE MINDS OF

YOUNG PEOPLE.

HEAR WHAT IS BEING DONE TO

FIGHT BACK AGAINST

CULTURE, NEXT.

Mark: WELCOME BACK.

IS THERE A REASON FOR A

GROWING ANTI-FAITH BIAS IN

OUR CULTURE?

AND IS IT AFFECTING

TODAY'S MILLENNIALS?

ONE AUTHOR, WHO IS A

MILLENNIAL HIMSELF, SAYS

THE ANSWER IS YES.

HEATHER SELLS EXPLAINS

WHY.

*

Heather: WHEN DISNEY

RECENTLY PROMOTED A GAY

MOMENT IN ITS REMAKE OF

"BEAUTY AND THE BEAST," IT

POINTED TO A TROUBLING

TREND FOR MANY BELIEVERS,

AN ANTI-FAITH BIAS THAT

SEEMS TO BE GROWING.

IT CAN BE SEEN ON COLLEGE

CAMPUSES, LIKE VANDERBILT,

WHICH FORCED STUDENT CLUBS

TO WELCOME NON-CHRISTIANS

IN THE LEADERSHIP.

AND THE DISDAIN FOR THOSE

WHO SPEAK OF RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY.

BILLY HALLOWELL SAYS WHAT

IS MOST DISCONCERTING IS

THIS ANTI-FAITH BIAS IS

ENTRENCHED IN OUR

IMPORTANT INSTITUTIONS, OR

THE BIG THREE, AS HE CALLS

THEM.

WHEN YOU'RE NOT

PRESENTING BOTH SIDES OF

SOMETHING, WHETHER IT IS

AT A UNIVERSITY, IN THE

MEDIA, OR IN HOLLYWOOD,

YOU'RE ESSENTIALLY ROBBING

PEOPLE OF THE ABILITY TO

MAKE A CHOICE.

Heather: AND

MILLENNIALS ARE PERHAPS

MOST AFFECTED BY THIS

DYNAMIC AS THEY HAVE GROWN

UP WITH A GLUT OF MEDIA

AND ENTERTAINMENT.

PEOPLE ARE MUCH MORE

DISCONNECTED, I THINK,

FROM WHAT IS HAPPENING,

DESENSITIZED TO IT, AND

REALLY THE END EFFECT OF

THAT, THE BIG CHANGE, IS

THAT OPINIONS ARE

SHIFTING.

Heather: A MILLENNIAL

HIMSELF, HE LOOKS CLOSER

THE AT THESE DRAMATIC

CHANGES IN HIS NEW BOOK

"FAULT LINE."

ONE WAKEUP POLL CALL: POLLS

THAT SHOW A GROWING NUMBER

OF AMERICANS WHO DON'T

HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HAVING

A BABY OUTSIDE OF

MARRIAGE.

AND NOW ALMOST TWO-THIRDS

OF THE COUNTRY SEE

HOMOSEXUALITY AS OKAY.

AT THE SAME TIME, GOING TO

CHURCH IS NO LONGER A WAY

OF LIFE FOR ALMOST A

QUARTER OF ALL AMERICANS,

WITH MILLENNIALS LEADING

THE WAY.

GENERATIONAL

REPLACEMENT IS HAPPENING.

THERE IS A LARGER NUMBER

OF PEOPLE, AT THIS POINT

AS MILLENNIALS, WHO IS

DISASSOCIATED WITH FAITH

THAN PREVIOUS GENERATIONS

WERE AT THIS POINT.

Heather: HE POINTS

THE FINGER SQUARELY AT THE

BIG THREE.

I DON'T THINK WE'VE

TAKEN ENOUGH TIME TO LOOK

AT ALL OF THOSE AREAS

TOGETHER, RIGHT?

THAT, TO ME, WAS THE

EYE-OPENING THING.

IT IS EASY TO EXPLAIN

ABOUT AN INDIVIDUAL AREA

AND TO TAKE A SHOW AND

PICK IT APART, BUT WHEN

YOU REALLY START TO LOOK

AT DATA AND INFORMATION

AND LOGICALLY BREAK IT

DOWN, IT BECOMES

TROUBLING.

Heather: THAT DATA

INCLUDES NUMBERS LIKE

THIS: ALMOST SIX IN 10

COLLEGE PROFESSORS

DESCRIBE THEMSELVES AT

LIBERAL OR FAR LEFT.

ONLY ONE IN 10 SAY THEY'RE

CONSERVATIVE.

THAT IS A 50% DIFFERENCE

WHICH TRANSLATES INTO WHAT

HALLOWELL CALLS LIBERAL

PRIVILEGE.

PEOPLE WHO ARE LIBERAL

ENJOY THE ABILITY TO SORT

OF SPEAK FREELY.

WHEREAS PEOPLE WHO DON'T

ASSOCIATE WITH THOSE

BELIEFS HAVE A HARDER TIME

MAYBE SPEAKING UP.

Heather: ONE CLEAR

EXAMPLE HAPPENED IN 2009,

WHEN THE MEDIA BLASTED THE

MISS U.S.A. CO CONTESTANT

GAVE HER VIEW.

I BELIEVE THAT MARRIAGE

SHOULD BE BETWEEN A MAN

AND A WOMAN.

Heather: HALLOWELL

BELIEVES THAT OUTCRY

CO-EXISTS WITH RAMPANT

SEXUAL ACTIVITY,,

INFILTRATING TELEVISION.

HIS INSTINCT PROVED

CORRECT WHEN A BARNA

REPORT FOUND THAT LESS

THAN 1% OF AMERICANS

BELIEVE HOLLYWOOD IS

FAITHFUL TO CHRISTIAN

BELIEFS.

EVEN MORE CONCERNING IS

THE SUBTLE ANTI-FAITH BIAS

THAT PEOPLE OFTEN MISS.

IT IS MUCH MORE

PROBLEMATIC AND DANGEROUS,

AND IT IS THE THING WE

DON'T THINK IS A PROBLEM,

RIGHT?

Heather: TO TOP IT

ALL UP, OUR GUIDE TO THESE

EVENTS, THE MAINSTREAM

MEDIA.

JUST 8% OF JOURNALISTS SAY

THEY ATTEND CHURCH OR

SYNAGOGUE EVERY WEEK.

THAT CONTRIBUTES TO A

WORLD VIEW BIAS, A BIAS IN

SELECTING STORIES AND

CONTENT, AND MOST RECENTLY

ELECTION NIGHT COVERAGE

THAT RESEMBLED A FUNERAL.

YOU'RE AWAKE, BY THE

WAY.

YOU'RE NOT HAVING A

TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE DREAM.

AND YOU'RE NOT DEAD AND

YOU HAVEN'T GONE TO HELL.

Heather: HE HOPES HIS

BOOK WILL SERVE AS AN

ALARM TO MILLENNIALS, WHO

HAVE BECOME DESENSITIZED

TO THIS ANTI-FAITH AND

OFTEN ANTI-CONSERVATIVE

BIAS.

WE NOW LOOK AT IT AS

NORMAL.

Heather: ONE WAY TO

FIGHT THE NEW NORMAL, HE

SAYS, IS FROM THE INSIDE.

HE URGES BELIEVERS TO GO

AFTER CAREERS IN

HOLLYWOOD, THE MEDIA, AND

ACADEMIA, TO TURN THE TIDE

IN SUBTLE AND PERHAPS NOT

SO SUBTLE WAYS.

REPORTING IN NEW YORK,

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Mark: COMING UP,

WE'LL GIVE YOU A GLIMPSE

INTO ONE OF THE

FASTEST-GROWING CHURCHES

IN AMERICA.

SEE HOW THE GOSPEL IS

CHANGING THE LIVES OF THIS

CHINESE-SPEAKING

COMMUNITY.

Mark: THANKS FOR

STAYING WITH CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

ONE OF THE FASTEST-GROWING

CHURCHES IN AMERICA IS THE

MANDARIN-SPEAKING CHINESE

CHURCH.

IN 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 THE STORY.

Reporter: THIS

REENACTMENT SHOWS THE

FRUSTRATION AND ANGER THAT

IS COMMON AND MANY

FAMILIES.

CHINESE-AMERICAN PARENTS

OFTEN FIND COMMUNICATING

WITH THEIR CHILDREN

CHALLENGING.

YUNGJA MOVED TO THE UNITED

STATES WHEN SHE WAS 13.

THAT'S WHEN THE

RELATIONSHIP WITH HER

PARENTS BECAME 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: YUNGJA 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 WAS A

MILITARY MEMBER WHEN HE

WAS YOUNGER.

SO THE WAY HOW HE WAS

TRAINING ME, IT IS LIKE

THE MILITARY STYLE.

Reporter: DESPITE THE

CONFLICT, YUNGJA 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

ADVANCED 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 BIGGEST

APPLAUSES, YOU KNOW, AND

WHAT THE AUDIENCES SAY

ABOUT US BECAME REALLY

ATTRACTIVE TO US.

Reporter: LIFE WAS

GOOD AND SHE FELL IN LOVE

WITH PAUL.

YUNGJA PLACED THE SAME

EXPECTATION OF PERFECTION

ON PAUL AS HER PARENTS

PLACED ON HER.

SOON EVERYTHING CHANGED

AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP

BROKE APART.

Through Translator:

BOTH OF US WEREN'T TALKING

TO EACH OTHER.

WE WERE MAD AT EACH OTHER,

AND I WAS WAITING FOR HER

TO APOLOGIZE TO ME FIRST.

IT WAS PAINFUL.

Reporter: THEIR

MARRIAGE AND FAMILY LIFE

WERE ABOUT TO COLLAPSE.

THEIR DAUGHTER, CRYSTAL,

WAS TRAUMATIZED BY THE

CONSTANT FIGHTING AND

ARGUMENTS.

UM, 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

MIDST OF THE TROUBLE,

YUNGJA AND PAUL BEGAN TO

ATTEND LOCAL CHINESE

CHURCH SERVICES.

THE PASTOR SHOWED THEM AND

THE OTHER YOUNG COUPLES

HOW TO BUILD A STRONG AND

STABLE FAMILY IN GOD'S

WAY.

THERE IS ALWAYS NEW

PEOPLE COMING IN.

THERE IS ALWAYS PEOPLE WHO

ARE LOOKING FOR A

COMMUNITY TO BELONG IN,

AND LOOKING FOR PEOPLE

THEY CAN CONNECT WITH.

AND I THINK 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 OR EVEN PICKED UP A

BIBLE BEFORE, AND 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

AFFECTIVELY REACH YOUNG

CHINESE.

WE'RE WORKING WITH

PEOPLE IN OUR CHURCH AND

OTHER CHURCHES.

THERE ARE FOUR CHINESE

CHURCHES IN THIS AREA, WHO

ARE ALL WORKING TO REACH

THIS COMMUNITY.

AND WE PARTNER WITH OTHER

LOCAL AMERICAN CHURCHES AS

WELL.

WE'RE PART OF A LOCAL

CHURCH NETWORK TO SUPPORTS

US AND CONNECTS US WITH

OTHER CHURCH LEADERS AND

MINISTRIES.

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

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.

Mark: IT IS GREAT TO

SEE THOSE YOUNG ONES

PRAYING WITH SUCH FERVOR.

> COMING UP, COLLEGE

BASKETBALL HAS A NEW

CHAMPION.
