On CBN Newswatch, April 21: Paris terror attack comes days before French elections; Devil's bargain? Why Turkish referendum spells bad news for religious minorities, and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: AND THANK YOU

FOR JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

ISIS IS CLAIMING

RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE

LATEST TERROR ATTACK IN

PARIS.

IT UNFOLDED IN THE HEART

OF PARIS, KILLING ONE

POLICE OFFICER AND

INJURING TWO OTHERS.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THIS

STORY.

Charlene: THE ATTACK

HAPPENED JUST AFTER

9 p.m. IN THE HEART OF

PARIS.

A GUNMAN, ARMED WITH

MILITARY-STYLE WEAPONS,

WALKED UP TO A POLICE VAN

AND OPENED FIRE.

I SAW THREE GUYS

COMING, AND THEY SHOOT

ONLY POLICE AND KILLED ONE

OF THE POLICE AND INJURED

ONE.

THEN I HAVE TO RUN AWAY.

I WAS THERE WORKING.

Charlene: THE GUNMAN

KILLED ONE POLICE OFFICER

AND SERIOUSLY WOUNDED TWO

OTHER OFFICERS BEFORE

OTHER POLICE KILLED HIM.

A WOMAN TOURIST WAS ALSO

INJURED.

ISIS CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY

AND MAY HAVE BEEN DIRECTLY

INVOLVED, RATHER THAN JUST

INSPIRING THE ATTACK.

FRENCH AUTHORITIES SAY THE

SUSPECT WAS REPORTEDLY

DETAINED IN FEBRUARY FOR

THREATENING POLICE, AND

THEN FREED.

POLICE SEARCHED HIS HOME

IN EASTERN PARIS

OVERNIGHT.

PRESIDENT TRUMP CONDEMNED

THE ATTACK.

President Trump: OUR

CONDOLENCES FROM OUR

COUNTRY TO THE PEOPLE OF

FRANCE.

IT LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER

TERRORIST ATTACK, AND WHAT

CAN YOU SAY?

Charlene: THE ATTACK

COMES JUST DAYS BEFORE THE

FIRST ROUND OF THE FRENCH

ELECTIONS ON SUNDAY.

SOME THINK IT MIGHT HELP

THE FAR RIGHT CANDIDATE,

MARIE LE PEN, WHO HAS

TAKEN A HARD LINE ON

IMMIGRATION ISSUES AND

TERRORISM.

THE ATTACK SHOWED THE

ONGOING THREAT IN FRANCE

AND ELSEWHERE IN EUROPE,

AND IT COULD LEAD TO

GROWING PUBLIC PRESSURE ON

GOVERNMENTS TO STOP

ISLAMIC TERRORISM.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE CHRISTIAN

GOVERNOR OF JAKARTA IS

FREE FROM CHARGES OF

BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE

QURAN.

IN A COURT APPEARANCE ON

THURSDAY, THE INDONESIAN

PROSECUTORS DECIDED TO END

THEIR TRIAL AGAINST HIM.

THE DECISION CAME A FEW

DAYS AFTER HE LAST HIS

RE-ELECTION BID AGAINST

THE FORMER MINISTER OF

EDUCATION.

IF HE HAD BEEN CONVICTED,

HE COULD HAVE SERVED UP TO

FIVE YEARS IN PRISON.

> U.S. PROSECUTORS ARE

PREPARING TO SEEK THE

ARREST OF WikiLEAKS'

FOUNDER JULIAN ASSANGE.

THAT'S WHAT SOURCES TOLD

CNN, AS WELL AS THE

"WASHINGTON POST." THEY

HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING

HIM SINCE 2010.

THE INVESTIGATORS

STRUGGLED TO BRING CHARGES

AGAINST WikiLEAKS, BUT

THEY NOW FOUND A WAY TO

MOVE FORWARD.

POSSIBLE CHARGES AND

CONSPIRACY, THEFT OF

GOVERNMENT PROPERTY, AND

VIOLATING THE E ESPIONAGE

ACT.

> THAT A REFERENDUM

STANDS, IT COULD BE BAD

NEWS FOR CHRISTIANS AND

OTHER RELIGIOUS MINORITIES

WHO ARE ALREADY FACING

PERSECUTION.

JENNIFER WISHON IS ON THIS

STORY.

Jennifer Jennifer: WITH A

NARROW VOTE THAT'S BEING

CHALLENGED AFTER

ALLEGATIONS OF FRAUD,

TURKS LOST CHECKS AND

BALANCES ON THEIR

GOVERNMENT, BARELY HANDING

ERDOGAN THE POWERS HE HAS

CRAZED.

>CRAVED.

THERE ARE SERIOUS

ALLEGATIONS, AND EVIDENCE

OF ELECTORAL FRAUD.

Jennifer: ERDOGAN

SERVED IN TURKEY'S

GOVERNMENT SINCE 2013.

THERE WERE HUNDREDS OF

CASES OF BALLOT BOXES.

AND WHAT IS EVEN MORE

SCANDALOUS IS THE SUPREME

COUNCIL OF ELECTION

CHANGED THE RULES OF

COUNTING OVER AN HOUR INTO

THE COUNTING, WHICH IS

ALWAYS AN EMBARRASSING,

SMOKING GUN FOR THE

GOVERNMENT.

Jennifer: ERDAMIR, A

MUSLIM CLERK, HAS DEFENDED

MUSLIM RIGHTS IN HIS

COUNTRY, AND INCLUDING

THOSE OF CHRISTIANS AND

JEWS.

ERDOGAN WILL GAIN

EXECUTIVE, LEGISLATIVE AND

JUDICIAL POWERS, AND

ERDAMIR PREDICTS

CHRISTIANS IN THE COUNTRY,

WHO HAVE ALREADY FALLEN

PREY TO PERSECUTION, WILL

ONLY GET WORSE.

HE INVOKED RELIGIOUS

INCITEMENT.

HE IS USING THAT

INSANE, KIND OF

BELLIGERENT ISLAM VERSUS

CHRISTIANITY, THE BATTLE

OF THE CROSS VERSUS THE

CRESCENT RHETORIC.

YOU CAN IMAGINE, IF YOU'RE

A MEMBER OF TURKEY'S

CHRISTIAN OR JEWISH

COMMUNITIES, YOU WILL FEEL

VERY SADDENED BECAUSE YOU

HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO

CONTINUES TO SINGLE YOU

OUT.

Jennifer: IT DOESN'T

BODE WELL FOR AMERICAN

PASTOR ANDREW BRUNSON.

HE HAS BEEN CONFINED TO A

TURKISH JAIL CELL SINCE

OCTOBER, SWEPT UP IN A

TERRORISM INVESTIGATION

BUT NEVER FORMALLY

CHARGED.

UNFORTUNATELY PASTOR

BRUNSON IS NOW A PAWN,

KIND OF A TRUMP CARD, IN

ERDOGAN'S HAND.

AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO

RULE OF LAW OR DUE PROCESS

IN THAT CASE.

IT IS A COMPLETELY BOGUS

CASE.

ANYONE WHO HAS LOOKED AT

THE CASE KNOWS THESE ARE

TRUMPED CHARGES.

Jennifer: AND NOW HE

HAS SET HIS SIGHTS ON

ANOTHER PROPOSITION FOR

VOTERS: RESTORING THE

DEATH PENALTY.

MY PREDICTION IS HE

WILL CONTINUE TO USE THIS

INCITEFUL ANTI-CHRISTIAN

SYSTEM, BECAUSE IT BRINGS

VOTES TO ERDOGAN.

HE KNOWS FIRSTHAND THAT

THE MAGIC FORMULA IN A

MOSTLY ISLAMIC COUNTRY IS

INCITEMENT.

I'M VERY CONCERNED IN THE

DAYS TO COME THAT IF THERE

IS A SECOND REFERENDUM ON

DEATH PENALTY, WE COULD

SEE FURTHER REPRISALS

AGAINST TURKEY'S MINORITY

FAITHS.

Jennifer: TURKEY

ABOLISHED CAPITAL

PUNISHMENT IN 2004, BUT A

RETURN TO THE DEATH

PENALTY IS A

DETAILBREAKER.

HOWEVER, INSTEAD OF

LEANING TO THE WEST,

AMERICA'S ALLY IS LOOKING

MORE LIKE THE COUNTRIES TO

ITS EAST.

BY WEAKENING TURKEY'S

DEMOCRACY, ERDOGAN HAS

LIKELY MADE HIMSELF MORE

VULNERABLE.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Efrem: THIS WEEKEND

MARKS HOLOCAUST

REMEMBRANCE DAY, AND MANY

ARE LIVING THEIR FINAL

YEARS IN TERRIBLE POVERTY.

THIS Facebook VIDEO

SHOWS THE STORY OF ONE

SUCH SURVIVOR, ULGA.

SHE WAS HUNTED BY NAZIS IN

WORLD WAR II, AND NOW SHE

LIVES IN THE COUNTRYSIDE,

STARVING.

YOU CAN HELP THOSE LIVING

IN SUCH HORRIBLE POVERTY

BY GOING TO cbnnews.com.

> COMING UP, A

DEMOCRATIC SENATOR WHO IS

CROSSING PARTY LINES TO

BREAK THE GRIDLOCK.

MORE FROM SENATOR JOE

MANSION AFTER THIS.

Efrem: WASHINGTON,

D.C. FEELS MORE

POLITICIZED THAN EVER

THESE DAYS, BUT ONE

SENATOR BELIEVES REACHING

ACROSS THE AISLE CAN HELP

TO BREAK THE GRIDLOCK.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US MORE ON THIS SEEMINGLY

LONE WOLF ON CAPITOL HILL.

Reporter: ON THE

SURFACE, IT WOULD SEEM

SENATOR JOE MANSION MIGHT

FEEL A LITTLE VULNERABLE.

IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS,

THE WEST VIRGINIA DEMOCRAT

FACES RE-ELECTION IN A

STATE THAT WENT

OVERWHELMING FOR PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

PLUS, THERE ARE THE RECENT

VOTES WHERE HE WENT

AGAINST PARTY.

BUT IF SENATOR MANSION'S

CONCERNED, HE IS NOT

SHOWING IT.

I DON'T HOLD A PARTY

LINE.

A PARTY LINE FOR ME IS

WHAT IS GOOD FOR WEST

VIRGINIA.

IF I CAN GO HOME AND

EXPLAIN IT, I'LL VOTE FOR

IT.

Reporter: DESPITE

BEING APPOINTEDED TO

DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP DAYS

AFTER THE 2016 ELECTION,

MANSION HAS BEEN SOME OF

THE FEW DEMOCRATIC

SENATORS TO VOTE FOR TRUMP

APPOINTEES, LIKE NEIL

GORSUCH AND JEFF SESSIONS.

I SAID, I'M GOING TO BE

DIFFERENTIAL TO AN

EXECUTIVE,E, PRESIDENT, OR

GOVERNOR WHO WANTS TO PUT

THEIR TEAM TOGETHER.

I GIVE EVERYONE THE

BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT.

THE ONES I VOTE AGAINST

ARE SOME THAT I THINK

WEREN'T QUALIFIED OR

DIDN'T HAVE THE EXPERIENCE

TO DO THE JOB RIGHT.

Reporter: BUT

PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS ARE

NOT SO UNDERSTANDING OF

HIS STAND.

WITH ACTIVISTS GROUPS

WALLING FOR HIS REMOVAL

FROM SENATE LEADERSHIP,

REFERRING TO HIM AS A

TRUMP APOLOGIST.

I'M JUST TRYING TO BE

REASONABLE, BUT, BOY, A

TOUGH PLACE TO BE

REASONABLE.

Reporter: HE

DISAGREED WITH PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S COAL POLICIES THAT

HE SAYS HAD DISASTEROUS

CONSEQUENCES FOR AMERICA

JOBS AND THE ECONOMY.

THEY WERE HORRIBLE

BECAUSE THERE WAS NOT A

RATIONAL ENERGY POLICY.

I SAID THIS, I'M ALL FOR

RENEWABLES.

I'M FOR WIND, I'M FOR

SOLAR, I'M FOR EVERYTHING,

BUT I'M ALSO A PRACTICE PRAGMATIST.

I UNDERSTAND IT IS ONLY

GOING TO DO SO MUCH FOR

ME.

IF THAT'S WHERE YOU THINK

YOU WANT ALL OF YOUR

ENERGY TO COME FROM, TELL

ME WHAT FOUR TO FIVE HOURS

A DAY DO YOU WANT YOUR

ELECTRICITY?

WHAT FOUR TO FIVE HOURS DO

YOU WANT YOUR REFRIGERATOR

TO WORK AND YOUR ELECTRIC

ON?

Reporter: HUNDREDS OF

MINES HAVE CLOSED DOWN IN

RECENT YEARS, AND MANSION

IS DISAPPOINTED THAT THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

INVESTED BILLIONS INTO

RENEWABLES LIKE SOLAR

ENERGY THAT PROVIDE ONLY

20% OF OUR POWER, WHILE

BASICALLY IGNORING COAL,

WHICH HE SAYS POWERS 70%

OF THE COUNTRY'S

ELECTRICITY.

THE REST OF THE WORLD

IS GOING TO USE THE MOST

ABUNDANT ENERGY, AND

THAT'S GOING TO BE COAL.

THEY'RE GOING TO USE IT.

IF THEY'RE GOING TO USE

IT, LET'S MAKE SURE THEY

USE IT CLEANER.

Reporter: ANOTHER

PRIORITY FOR MANSION,

ADDRESSING OUR NATIONAL

DEBT.

WHAT WE'RE DOING FOR

THE FUTURE GENERATIONS OF

THIS COUNTRY IS BASICALLY

ALMOST CRIMINAL.

I MEAN, YOU'RE PASSING ON

TO YOUR CHILDREN AN

UNMANAGEABLE DEBT, WHEN

YOU COULD FIX IT.

Reporter: HE THINKS A

REASONABLE TAX POLICY IS

THE ANSWER.

THE SUPER, SUPER

WEALTHY 1% SHOULDN'T HAVE

THE PRIVILEGES THAT NOBODY

ELSE GETS.

THEY SHOULD PAY THEIR FAIR

SHARE.

Reporter: HER IN WEST

VIRGINIA, IT IS HARD TO

TELL IF POLITICALLY

MANSION'S BENEFITING FROM

HIS ACTIONS.

REPUBLICANS SEEM IMPRESSED

BY HIS VOTES, BUT HE HAS

LOST SUPPORT FROM SOME

DEMOCRATS.

I THINK HE IS TOO MUCH

TO THE RIGHT.

HE'S A DEMOCRAT, AND

I'M A DEMOCRAT, ALSO, BUT

I CERTAINLY DISAGREE.

I THINK MANSION IS IN

THE WRONG PARTY.

HE WOULD BE MUCH HAPPIER

AS A REPUBLICAN, AND WE'D

BE HAPPY TO HAVE HIM.

HE IS AN UNUSUAL KIND

OF PERSON TO BE THAT CLOSE

TO THE FENCE.

HE STOOD ON HIS OWN

BECAUSE HE DID WHAT HE

THOUGHT WAS RIGHT, AND I

LIKE THAT BECAUSE THAT IS

NOT JUST STICKING WITH

PARTY FOR PARTY'S SAKE.

I'LL VOTE FOR HIM.

Reporter: AND IN

WASHINGTON, MANSION

REMAINS DETERMINED HE IS

NOT OUT TO PLEASE EITHER

PARTY.

THEY CAN'T JUST

PIGEONHOLE ME.

THAT'S NOT ME.

OR THEY CAN CONTROL ME --

THAT'S NOT ME.

AND I THINK THEY KNOW I'M

GOING TO BASICALLY LOOK

OUT FOR MY STATE AND DO

EVERYTHING I CAN TO HELP

MY STATE AND MY COUNTRY.

Reporter: WE'LL SEE

YOU IN 20818 2018 AND SEE IF

MODERATE DEMOCRATS, LIKE

JOE MANSION, CAN SURVIVE.

ROREPORTING FROM WASHINGTON,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON.

Efrem: UP NEXT, A

FILM THAT SHINES THE LIGHT

ON A 100-YEAR-OLD EVENT

THAT MANY DON'T KNOW

Efrem: MONDAY,

APRIL 24th, ARMENIANS IN

AMERICA AND AROUND THE

WORLD WILL PAUSE TO

REMEMBER OVER A MILLION

PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR

LIVES TO GENOCIDE, MANY OF

THEM CHRISTIANS.

IT IS MORE THAN A

100-YEAR-OLD CATASTROPHE

MANY STILL DON'T KNOW

ABOUT.

BUT A FILM HITS THEATERS

TODAY, HOPING TO SHED A

LIGHT ON THE REAL-LIFE

EVENTS, AND ALL OF THE

PROFITS ARE BEING DONATED

TO CHARTER.

I SAT DOWN WIT WITH THE STARS

FOR A LOOK AT THIS MOVIE.

I HAVE TO GO.

I HAVE TO FIND THEM.

LEAVE THESE PEOPLE

ALONE.

YOU'RE SAFE.

NO, I'M NOT SAFE.

Efrem: IN "THE

PROMISE" OSCAR ISAAC PLAYS

AN ARMENIAN TRYING TO SAVE

HIS FAMILY.

CHRISTIAN BALE PLAYS AN

AMERICAN JOURNALIST

DOCUMENTING THE ATROCITY.

STILL, THERE IS THE LOVE

STORY.

> YOU READ THIS SCRIPT

AND YOU GET TO THE END,

AND HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE

THE STORY?

HEARTBREAKING?

IT IS A HEARTBREAKING

STORY OF SURVIVAL.

IT ATTEMPTS TO SHOW THIS

VERY HUMAN STORY SET

INSIDE A VERY TRAGIC TIME,

WHICH IS THE ARMENIAN

GENOCIDE, IN 1915, WHERE

1.5 MILLION A ARMENIANS

PERISHED.

Efrem: ANY THOUGHTS

ON WHY THIS HAPPENED?

YOU GET THE KREMLIN AND

THE BIRTH OF THE TURKISH

NATION.

THERE WAS GREAT TURKISH

NATIONALISM AT THAT TIME.

AND THEN THE LACK OF

CONSEQUENCES, AND HENCE

THE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE

ABOUT IT.

OF COURSE, IT IS

UNCOMFORTABLE TO ADMIT

THAT THE BIRTH OF A NATION

CAME FROM THE PAINS OF AN

EXTERMINATION O OF AN ENTIRE

RACE.

> THERE IS THE PROMISE

THAT THE CONTACT, MIKHAIL

HAS, TO THE WOMAN, THAT HE

WILL RETURN.

BUT OVER ALL, THERE IS A

PROMISE NEVER TO FORGET,

BY THE FILM-MAKER, BY ARM

ARMENIANS, BY ANYBODY WHO

HAS LOST SOMEONE.

Efrem: "THE PROGRAMS" PROMISE"

IS IN THEATERS TODAY.

> WE JUST REVIEWED "THE

PROMISE," AND WHAT ARE

YOUR INSIGHTS?

WE GAVE IT FOUR STARS,

WHICH MEANS THAT THE

QUALITY IS AMAZING.

BUT WE DID SAY THAT THERE

IS A LITTLE BIT OF

CAUTION.

WE GAVE IT A NEGATIVE TWO,

WHICH JUST MEANS OLDER

AUDIENCES.

THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF

CONTENT THAT YOU HAVE TO

BE AWARE ABOUT, INCLUDING,

YOU KNOW, INTIMATE

RELATIONSHIPS AND STUFF

LIKE THAT, AND, OBVIOUSLY,

VIOLENCE.

THE TOPIC IS ABOUT THE

ARMENIAN GENOCIDE, WHICH

IS A VERY HEAVY TOPIC.

IT IS A HUGE BUDGET MOVIE.

IT IS A $100 MILLION

MOVIE, THE BIGGEST BUDGET

FOR THIS TOPIC.

IT IS KIND OF INTERESTING,

A LOT OF AMERICANS DON'T

EVEN KNOW ABOUT THE

ARMENIAN GENOCIDE, AND

THAT'S PARTLY BECAUSE THE

TURKISH GOVERNMENT NEVER

WANTED TO SAY IT REALLY

OCCURRED, WHICH IS KIND OF

INTERESTING.

THIS ONE STARS OSCAR

ISAAC, WHICH WE KNOW FROM

""STA"STAR WARS".

AND HE DOES A GREAT JOB.

HE IS A YOUNG MAN.

HE GROWS UP IN A SMALL

VILLAGE THAT IS REALLY

POOR, BUT HE WANTS TO MAKE

A BETTER LIFE FOR HIMSELF.

HE GOES OFF TO

CONSTANTINOPLE TO LEARN

MEDICINE.

THAT'S WHEN THE GENOCIDE

STARTS.

HE MEETS THE REPORTER FROM

AMERICA, AND HIS

GIRLFRIEND.

THE REPORTER IS TALKING

ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON

THERE, AND NOBODY ELSE IS

SAYING WHAT IS GOING ON.

AND THAT IS CHRISTIAN

BALE, WHO PLAYED THIS

CHARACTER, CHRIS MYERS.

SO IT IS AN INCREDIBLE

MOVIE.

Efrem: EYE-OPENING

FOR PEOPLE, INDEED.

> ALSO OUT TODAY,

DISNEY'S NATURE FILM "BORN

IN CHINA," AND IT IS IN

THEATERS.

WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT

THAT MOVIE?

"BORN IN CHINA" IS

ANOTHER MOVIE WE ENJOYED.

IT IS KIND OF COOL THAT

DISNEY IS DOING THESE

TYPES OF MOVIES.

THEY ARE REALLY WANTING

KIDS TO GET OUT THERE, SEE

NATURE, AND NOT JUST BE ON

TECHNOLOGY.

THIS ONE KIND OF FOLLOWS

THE CUTEST PANDA YOU'LL

EVER SEE, AND A SNOW

LEOPARD AND A MONKEY AND A

CRANE.

IT GOES INTO RURAL CHINA,

AN AREA THAT HAS NEVER

BEEN FILMED IN BEFORE,

WHICH IS INCREDIBLE.

WE GAVE IT A CAUTION, A

NEGATIVE 1.

THERE IS AN OVE OVERARCHING

WORLD VIEW, AND THERE ARE

SOME MENTIONS OF

REINCARNATION, AND STUFF

LIKE THAT.

BUT THE MOVIE IS

BEAUTIFULLY DEN, A

BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPE.

IT IS AWESOME TO GET TO

EVEN SEE RURAL CHINA LIKE

THAT.

SO THAT ONE IS ANOTHER

RECOMMENDED FOR FAMILIES.

WE GAVE IT THREE STARS.

AND LIKE I SAID, NEGATIVE

1 CAUTION FOR THAT KIND OF

LITTLE ELEMENT OF REIN

CARREINCARNATION.

Efrem: BEFORE WE LET

YOU GO, WE KNOW THESE TWO

FILMS ARE OUT TODAY.

BUT LOOKING AHEAD, WHAT

CAN WE ANTICIPATE OUR

CONVERSATIONS TALKING

ABOUT?

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING

FORWARD TO?

THERE ARE SOME GREAT

MOVIES COMING UP.

WE JUST VIEWED "GALAXY

TWO," AND WE'LL HAVE TO

TALK ABOUT THAT A LITTLE

LATER BECAUSE THAT DOESN'T

COME OUT UNTIL MAY 5th.

SO I CAN'T SAY ANYTHING.

BUT WE'LL TALK LATER.

Efrem: EVIE BEAR,

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

TIME.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO FUTURE

CONVERSATIONS AND THIS NEW

PARTNERSHIP.

GREAT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Efrem: AND STAY WITH

US, THERE IS MORE OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH" COMING UP.

Efrem: VIOLENT MOSSI

OF JAMAICA IS THE OLDEST

LIVING WOMAN IN THE WORLD

O.

AND SHE SAYS THE SECRET TO

HER LONGEVITY IS HER

FAITH.

Charlene: VIOLENT HAS

BEEN DECLARED THE WORLD'S

OLDEST LIVING PERSON AT

THE AGE OF 117, SOMETHING

SHE SAYS SHE NEVER

EXPECTED.

I THANK GOD FOR WHAT HE

HAS GIVEN TO ME.

THIS IS WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN

TO ME.

Charlene:

AFFECTIONATELY KNOWN AT

AUNT BEE, SHE WAS BORN IN

1900s.

SHE CREDITS SERVING THE

LORD FOR HER LONG LIFE.

I SPENT MY ENTIRE LIFE

IN CHURCH.

Charlene: AND WHEN IT

COMES TO FOOD, THIS SUPER

CENTENARIAN SAYS SHE EATS

JUST ABOUT ANYTHING, WITH

A FEW EXCEPTIONS.

I DON'T EAT MEAT.

I DON'T EAT PORK.

BUT I EAT EVERYTHING ELSE.

Charlene: MEANWHILE,

HER SON IS 97 YEARS OLD,

WHICH COULD MAKE HIM THE

OLDEST LIVING PERSON IN

THE WORLD WITH A PARENT

STILL ALIVE.

Efrem: IT IS NOW TIME

FOR YOUR FRIDAY FAITHFUL.

I PRAY THIS MESSAGE WILL

INSPIRE YOU AS WE WRAP THE

WORK WEEK.

DON'T BE SO QUICK TO HIDE

AND MASK YOUR PAIN.

THERE IS A PURPOSE IN IT,

AND OTHERS NEED TO KNOW

ABOUT IT TO BE INSPIRED BY

YOUR STRENGTH AND PERHAPS

TO LEND A HAND AS WELL.

WITH THAT WORD, MAKE THIS
