NEW ESCALATION OF THE

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S NATIONAL

SECURITY ADVISOR MADE IT

CLEAR THAT THE U.S. WILL

NOT ALLOW NORTH KOREA TO

THREATEN AMERICA WITH

WE CAN'T REPEAT THE

SAME APPROACH -- FAILED

THE PRESIDENT HAS DIRECTED

US TO NOT DO THAT, AND TO

PREPARE A RANGE OF

OPTIONS, INCLUDING A

MILITARY OPTION, WHICH

NOBODY WANTS TO TAKE.

IN A CONFIDENT AND

POWERFUL NUCLEAR STATE

THAT CAN STRIKE ANYWHERE

ON EARTH.

ERA OF STRATEGIC PATIENCE

WITH THE NORTH KOREAN

REGIME HAS FAILED.

MANY YEARS, AND IT HAS

FAILED.

AND FRANKLY, THAT PATIENCE

IS OVER.

WHILE RECENTLY HIRED

ATTORNEYS WITH EXPERIENCE

THE COUNTRY HAS A LONG

HISTORY OF HACKING, MONEY

> UP NEXT HERE ON CBN

"NEWSWATCH," AN EXCLUSIVE,

WATCH MIRACLES UNFOLD DEEP

IN THE HEART OF THE

JUNGLE.

WE HEAD TO THE PYGMY

COLONIES OF UGANDA.

WE'VE GOT THE STORY AFTER

THIS.

Efrem: FOR CENTURIES,

THEY HAVE LIVED IN CAVES

AND TREES WHILE HUNTING IN

THE YUNG GEL.

JUNGLE.

A REMOTE AFRICAN TRIBE

CALLED THE PYGMIES.

THE UGANDAN GOVERNMENT

FORCED THEM OUT OF THE

FOREST, LEAVING THEM

HOMELESS.

NOW ONE MINISTRY IS

HELPING HE THEM TO REBUILD

THEIR LIVES.

GEORGE THOMPSON HAS THE

STORY FROM SOUTHWESTERN

UGANDA.

George: YOU'RE ABOUT

TO SEE IMAGES NEVER

CAPTURED ON CAMERA.

UNTIL NOW.

FROM DEEP IN THE LUSH

GREEN JUNGLES OF

AFRICA...COMES THE STORY

OF ONE OF THIS CONTINENT'S

OLDEST LIVING TRIBES.

Through Translator:

WE USED TO LIVE LIKE

ANIMALS IN THE JUNGLE.

George: YOUVA UVAN IS A

BOTWA PYGMY.

WE SMOKED, WE DRANK, WE

PERFORMED WITCHCRAFT.

WE WERE DEVIL WITHIN PERS.

George: THIS DOCTOR

IS STUDYING THE BOTWA

PEOPLE.

THEY ARE ONLY 4 1/2

FEET IN HEIGHT.

THEY COLLECT FRUIT FROM

THE TREES OR ROOTS FROM

THE GROUND AND HUNTED.

George: THEIR LIFE

REVOLVES AROUND THE FOREST

OF SOUTHWESTERN UGANDA.

AND ACTUALLY, THEY ARE

PRE-STONE AGE.

THEY HAD NO STONE

INSTRUMENTS.

George: THE BOTWA

WERE KNOWN AS THE KEEPERS

OF THE FOREST, BUT THAT

ALL DRAMATICING CHANGED

BACK IN 1992, WHEN THE

GOVERNMENT HERE IN KAMPALA

DECIDED TO TURN THEIR

FOREST INTO A HERITAGE

SITE FOR ENDANGERED

MOUNTAIN GORILLAS.

350 GORILLAS LIVE IN THE

FOREST.

SO THE RESULT WAS THE

BOTWA WERE EVICTED FROM

THE FOREST.

George: AFTER

CENTURIES OF LIVING IN

CAVES AND TREES, THE BOTWA

BECAME CONSERVATION

REFUGEES.

WITH NO TITLE TO LAND, NO

FOOD, NO CLOTHING, NO

SHELTER, THOUSANDS OF THEM

WALKED OUT OF THE JUNGLE

TO A WORLD THAT TURNED

AGAINST THEM.

THE PEOPLE DID NOT KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

THEY THOUGHT MAYBE THIS

BOTWA, THE PYGMIES, ARE

LIKE ANIMALS.

George: TAGOOMI AND

HIS WIFE DECIDED TO HELP

SOME OF THE BOTWA.

THEY MOVED FROM THEIR HOME

IN UGANDA'S CAPITAL TO THE

SMALL VILLAGE OF BUSORA TO

BEGAN A MINISTRY AMONG THE

PYGMIES.

HUNDREDS OF BOTWA PYGMIES

HEARD ABOUT JESUS FOR THE

VERY FIRST TIME.

THIS MAN IS ONE OF HIS

FIRST CONVERTS.

Through Translator:

IT WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT

ANYONE EVER TOLD US ABOUT

JESUS.

WE HEARD CHRIST DIED FOR

OUR SINS, AND THAT CHANGED

OUR LIVES.

George: ON THIS

DAY --

I BAPTIZE YOU IN THE

NAME OF THE FATHER, THE

SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

[APPLAUSE]

[YELLING]

George: 37 RESPONDED

TO THE GOSPEL MESSAGE AND

GOT BAPTIZED IN A RIVER.

[SINGING]

George: GERALD SAYS

MIRACLES ARE ALSO

HAPPENING AMONG THE BOTWA.

PEOPLE DIAGNOSED WITH

HIV/AIDS ARE GETTING

HEALED.

A PYGMY GIRL ON THE VIRGE

OF DEATH, GIVEN M NEW LIFE.

SHE WAS DEAD, ALMOST.

THEY STARTED PRAYING FOR

HER.

AND THEY PRAYED FOR HOURS.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

THE CHILD GOT HEALED.

George: IT ALL LED TO

THIS...THE FIRST EVER

BOTWA PYGMY CHURCH IN THE

REGION.

THE PYGMIES COME TO

ATTEND CHURCH.

George: THEY ALSO RUN

A SCHOOL FOR PYGMY

CHILDREN.

AND PARENTS, ONCE ANIMAL

HUNTERS, ARE LEARNING TO

BE FARMERS.

BUT THE NEEDS HERE ARE

ENORMOUS.

IF YOU CAN IMAGINE

POVERTY, WHICH EXISTS

EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD,

YET THESE ARE THE POOREST

OF THE POOR.

George: AFTER MAKING

SEVERAL TRIPS OUT HERE,

TINO, A DOCUMENTARY

PRODUCER AND UNIVERSITY

GRADUATE, DECIDED TO GET

INVOLVED.

HE GOT A HANDFUL OF

CHURCHES IN SWEDEN TO

PARTNER WITH BOTWA

CHRISTIANS.

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS

MINISTRY, IT IS RUN BY THE

BOTWA PYGMIES THEMSELVES.

THEY HAVE FORMED A BOARD.

THEY ARE CARING FOR THEIR

OWN PEOPLE.

WE JUST WANT TO EMPOWER

THEM AND GIVE THEM SOME

RESOURCES TO STAND ON

THEIR FEET.

George: NO ONE KNOWS

FOR SURE, BUT IT IS

ESTIMATED THERE ARE STILL

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF BOTWA

WHO HAVE YET TO HEAR THE

NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.

JUST AS CHRIST DID FOR

ME, I BELIEVE HIS MESSAGE

OF SALVATION IS GOING TO

CHANGE THE LIVES OF MY

TRIBE.

George: IN THE

MEANTIME, GERALD WELCOMES

CHRISTIANS FROM AROUND THE

WORLD TO JOIN HIM IN THE

ADVENTURE OF REACHING ONE

OF THE MOST UNREACHED

PEOPLE GROUPS IN THE

WORLD.

WE NEED PEOPLE TO STAND

WITH US IN PRAYER.

SO GOD MAY USE US MORE, TO

REACH AS MANY PYGMIES AS

POSSIBLE.

George: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS, UGANDA.

Efrem: AND NEXT,

WE'RE HEADING TO "STUDIO

5."

SONGWRITER MATTHEW WEST

TAKES US INSIDE THE PAGES

OF HIS BOOK ON IDENTITY.

Efrem: MATTHEW WEST

IS AN ARTIST WHO KNOWS A

THING OR TWO ABOUT

IDENTITY.

HIS LATEST PROJECT IS

CALLED, "HELLO, MY NAME

IS... ".

I SAT DOWN WITH HIM TO

TALK ABOUT HIS BOOK.

* HELLO, MY NAME IS

REGRET *

* I'M PRETTY SURE WE HAVE

MET *

Efrem: WHAT DOES AN

AWARD-WINNING CHRISTIAN

SINGER AND SONGWRITER KNOW

ABOUT STRUGGLING TO FIND

IDENTITY.

LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN

LIFE, WE'RE TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT WHO WE ARE,

WHAT SETS US APART, AND

WHAT OUR IDENTITY IS TO

THE WORLD.

I HAD THIS IMAGE, IT'S AS

IF ON THE DAY YOU'RE BORN,

A NURSE SLAPS A NAME TAG

ON YOUR ONESIE.

AND THEY PUSH YOU OUT THE

DOOR AND THEY SAY, GOOD

LUCK, KID, GO MAKE A NAME

FOR YOURSELF.

I THINK I, LIKE MANY

PEOPLE, HAVE SPENT MY

WHOLE LIFE, OR MUCH OF MY

LIFE, THINKING THAT IT IS

UP TO ME TO FILL IN THAT

BLANK SPACE ON MY NAME

TAG.

HELLO, MY NAME IS...AND

THEN WHAT CAN I PUT THERE

THAT WILL SET ME APART.

MY DREAMS OF MUSIC AND

MUCH OF THAT WAS A PURSUIT

FOR ME TO FIND AN

IDENTITY.

I THINK ONE OF THE BIGGEST

STRUGGLES I'VE HAD IS

REALIZING I'M NOT DEFINED

BY THE MUSIC I MAKE OR HOW

MANY PEOPLE COME TO MY

CONCERT OR IF MY SONG IS A

HIT OR NOT A HIT.

BECAUSE THE BOTTOM LINE

THAT IS NOT SOLID ENOUGH

FOR M ME TO BASE MY IDENTITY

ON.

IT IS ALMOST A DAILY

REMINDER -- I FEEL LIKE I

NEED AN HOURLY REMINDER.

OH, NO, NO, NO, I KNOW WHO

I AM BECAUSE OF WHO GOD

SAYS I AM.

THE MORE I DIG INTO

SCRIPTURE, THAT'S THE

CLOSEST I'M GOING TO GET.

GETTING CLOSER TO THE GOD

WHO MADE ME AND WHO HE IS

AND WHAT HE SAYS ABOUT ME.

IT REALLY HAS BEEN JUST A

SERIES OF DIFFERENT

CHAPTERS IN MY STORY, THAT

ALL CARRY A DIFFERENT NAME

TAG, AND CARRY A FALSE

IDENTITY AS WELL.

THE DEVIL GOES TO WORK ON

A CHRISTIAN SINGER AS HE

DOES EVERYBODY ELSE.

I WRITE ABOUT IT IN A

STRONG, THAT THERE IS A

WAR GOING ON, BUT I'M

LIVING PROOF THAT GRACE

WINS EVERY TIME.

MOMENTS BEFORE I WALK ON

STAGE, I HEAR THIS VOICE

SAY, MAN, MATTHEW, WHO DO

YOU THINK YOU ARE?

YOU'RE GOING OUT THERE

RIGHT NOW, AND YOU'RE

GOING TO SING SONGS ABOUT

BEING A CHILD OF THE KING,

SINGING SONGS ABOUT GOD'S

GRACE, AND IF THESE PEOPLE

KNEW THE HALF OF IT, IF

THEY KNEW HOW MESSED UP

YOU ARE, HOW MANY TIMES

YOU MADE MISTAKES, THIS,

THAT, AND THE OTHER,

YOU'RE UNQUALIFIED.

YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS GOING

OUT THERE.

THOSE CAN BE DEFEATING

BLOWS RIGHT AS I'M ABOUT

TO GO ON STAGE AND

MINISTER TO PEOPLE.

AND YET THERE COMES A

WHISPER OF TRUTH FROM THE

GOD WHO MADE ME, THE GOD

WHO KNOWS ME, THE GOD WHO

SENT HIS SON TO DIE ON THE

CROSS FOR MY SINS -- I CRY

OUT TO GOD AND I SAY, GOD,

YOU'RE THE ONLY REASON I

CAN GET OUT THERE AND

SING.

* THERE IS A WAR BETWEEN

GUILT AND GRACE *

* AND THEY'RE FIGHTING FOR

A SACRED SPACE *

* BUT I'M LIVING PROOF

GRACE WINS EVER TIME *

Efrem: THAT WAS A

VERY REAL AND OPEN AND

HONEST ANSWER.

WHAT WAS THE PROCESS LIKE

TO GET TO THE POINT OF

BEING SO VULNERABLE AND

OPEN?

WRITING A SONG ABOUT

BEING A CHILD OF THE ONE

TRUE KING, THAT'S ONE

THING.

I'VE BEEN, OVER THE YEARS,

HONING THE CRAFT OF

LEARNING HOW TO TELL A

STORY IN A THREE-MINUTE

SONG AND THEN MAKE IT

RHYME.

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE

LORD STARTS PUTTING A

DREAM ON MY HEART TO

EXPAND THAT WRITING AND TO

WRITE A BOOK.

AND HERE I AM WRITING A

BOOK CALLED "HELLO, MY

NAME IS..."

AND THAT MEANS I'VE GOT TO

GET REAL WITH MYSELF.

I CAN'T WRITE A BOOK ABOUT

FINDING YOUR IDENTITY IF I

HAVEN'T FOUND MINE.

AND SO, REALLY, THE

BOOK-WRITING PROCESS KIND

OF FORCED ME TO DIG IN AND

TO BE REAL AND BE

AUTHENTIC.

IT'S FUNNY, I SHARED THE

BOOK WITH MY MOM CHAPTER

BY CHAPTER BECAUSE THIS

BOOK IS KIND OF HER FAULT.

SO IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT,

YOU CAN BLAME HER.

SHE CALLED ME YEARS AGO,

AND SHE SAID SHE'D BEEN

PRAYING FOR ME.

AND SHE SAID, THE LORD HAS

PUT ON MY HEART THAT

YOU'RE NOT JUST GOING TO

BE WRITING SONGS TO

ENCOURAGE PEOPLE.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE WRITING

A BOOK.

AND ONE OF THE BIGGEST

THINGS SHE ENCOURAGED ME

WITH IS WHEN THE BOOK WAS

ALL DONE, SHE SAID, I HAVE

READ IT THREE TIMES.

AND SHE SAID, I'M PROUD OF

YOU.

AND I SAID, WHY IS THAT?

AND SHE SAID, BECAUSE YOU

WERE AUTHENTIC.

Efrem: WHEN YOU SIT

AND LOOK BACK AT YOUR LIFE

RIGHT NOW, WOULD YOU BE

SURPRISED YOU WOULD BE

SITTING HERE AN AUTHOR?

YEAH.

I THOUGHT I WOULD BE

GETTING INTERVIEWED

BECAUSE I HIT 600 HOMERUNS

AND WAS ON THE WAY TO THE

MAJOR LEAGUE HALL OF FAME.

THAT WAS MY DREAM,

ACTUALLY.

THIS IS A NEW DREAM FOR

ME.

I FEEL LIKE GOD

CONTINUALLY SHOWS ME THAT

HE DOESN'T JUST PICK ONE

PATH FOR US AND THEN HE

STOPS DREAMING FOR US.

SO WHY DO WE STOP

DREAMING.

I DO FEEL LIKE A LOT OF

PEOPLE I MEET, AND IN MY

OWN LIFE, YOU CAN JUST

KIND OF GET IN YOUR LANE

AND IT IS, LIKE, ALL

RIGHT, THIS IS IT.

THIS IS WHAT GOD HAS FOR

ME.

I THINK WE DRAW MUCH

CLEARER LINES AROUND HOW

GOD IS GOING TO USE US

THAN GOD REALLY INTENDS

FOR US.

EVERY TIME I'VE DRAWN THE

CIRCLE AND SAID, HERE IS

WHERE I LIVE, GOD SAYS,

NO, NO, NO.

LIKE JESUS WHO WROTE IN

THE SAND FOR THE WOMAN WHO

WAS CAUGHT IN ADULTERY --

I FEEL LIKE JESUS IS

REACHING DOWN AND WIPING

AWAY THE LINES I'VE DRAWN.

WHEN I SAY, OKAY, NOW I'M

A SINGER.

NO, NO, NO.

HE'S GOING TO USE ME AS A

SONGWRITER.

AND NOW I GET TO WRITE

SONGS FOR OTHER PEOPLE,

TOO.

ANOTHER LINE GETS ERASED.

AND THEN YOU REALIZE,

THERE IS NO LIMIT.

THERE IS NO BORDER.

Efrem: THINK ABOUT

THIS, YOU LOSE YOUR VOICE,

YOU LOSE YOUR ABILITY TO

WRITE SONGS, WHO WOULD

MATTHEW WEST BE?

THAT'S A GREAT

QUESTION.

IF I LOST MY VOICE AND MY

ABILITY TO WRITE SONGS,

WHO WOULD I BE?

I FEEL LIKE I'VE HAD TO

ANSWER THAT QUESTION ONCE

BEFORE.

AND I PANICKED THE FIRST

TIME BECAUSE I WAS FACED

WITH THAT.

MY VOICE IS GONE.

I WENT UNDER THE KNIFE.

THE DOCTORS TELL ME I

MIGHT NOT SING AGAIN.

I REMEMBER MAKING A LIST

OF OTHER CAREER

OPPORTUNITIES BECAUSE I

THOUGHT I WAS DONE.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHO I WAS.

AND I CAN HONESTLY SAY I

DIDN'T KNOW THE ANSWER TO

THAT QUESTION THEN.

BUT NOW I DO FEEL LIKE I

HAVE THE ANSWER.

AND THE ANSWER IS THAT IF

ONE DREAM GOES AWAY, I'VE

LEARNED ENOUGH TO KNOW

THAT GOD DOESN'T STOP

DREAMING FOR ME.

WHATEVER HE LED ME TO,

VOICE OR NO SAYS VOICE, SONG OR

NO SONG, AUDIENCE OR NO

AUDIENCE, HE'S GOT ME.

HE HAS BLESSED ME WITH A

WIFE AND TWO BEAUTIFUL

KIDS.

I LOVE SINGING, HELLO, MY

NAME IS DAD.

HELLO, MY FAME I NAME IS HUSBAND.

THAT IS MUCH BETTER THAN

HELLO, MY NAME IS

HIT-MAKER.

I'VE SEEN THE THINGS WIPED

OFF MY NAME TAG IN THE

PAST.

I THINK I'D BE OKAY IF IT

WAS GONE TOMORROW BECAUSE

I'M LEARNING MORE AND MORE

EVERY DAY TO PUT ALL OF MY

WEIGHT ON THAT IDENTITY IN

CHRIST.

Efrem: ONCE AGAIN,

MATTHEW'S BOOK IS CALLED

"HELLO, MY NAME IS..."

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

Efrem: IT'S TIME NOW

FOR YOUR WEDNESDAY WORD.

TODAY'S WORD, CONSIDER

THIS: DARKNESS IS THE

ABSENCE OF LIGHT.

COLD IS THE ABSENCE OF

HEAT.

AND THE ABSENCE OF FAITH

IS THE ABSENCE OF A LIFE

THAT PLEASES GOD.

HIS SCRIPTURE CLEARLY

SAYS, WITHOUT FAITH IT IS

IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM.

BUT GET THIS: HE GIVES TO

EVERY MAN A MEASURE OF

FAITH.

SO HE GIVES YOU EXACTLY

WHAT YOU NEED TO HONOR

HIM.

BUT FAITH IS STILL A GIFT.

YOU'VE GOT TO CHOOSE TO

RECEIVE IT.

WITH THAT WORD, ACTIVATE

YOUR FAITH AND MAKE THIS A

WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY.
