On CBN Newswatch, July 11: Much ado about nothing? White House on defensive after New York Times report; 'We drove straight through the fire': Kids rescued from summer camp as trees 'exploded,' and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: AND THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

NEW DETAILS ARE EMERGING

ABOUT THE MEETING BETWEEN

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S SON AND

A RUSSIAN ATTORNEY LINKED

TO THE KREMLIN.

THE MEETING HAPPENED JUST

BEFORE THE ELECTION.

ALSO IN THE HEADLINES, THE

PRESIDENT CONTINUES HIS

STANCE, ACCUSING JAMES

COMEY OF ILLEGALLY LEAKING

CLASSIFIED MATERIAL.

CBN'S NATIONAL SECURITY

CORRESPONDENT ERIC

GONZALES BREAKS IT ALL

DOWN.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE IS AGAIN ON THE

DEFENSIVE, FOLLOWING A

"NEW YORK TIMES" REPORT

THAT DONALD TRUMP, JR. WAS

INFORMED IN AN E-MAIL THAT

DAMAGING INFORMATION ABOUT

HILLARY CLINTON WAS BEING

OFFERED AS PART OF A

RUSSIAN EFFORT TO HELP HIS

FATHER'S CAMPAIGN.

AND AT THE MEE MEETING WAS

PAUL MANAFORT AND JARED

KUSHNER.

AND THE MEETING TOOK PLACE

AT TRUMP TOWER WITH THE

RUSSIAN LAWYER LINKED TO

THE KREMLIN.

SHE WAS AN INDIVIDUAL WHO

I WAS TOLD MIGHT HAVE

INFORMATION HELPFUL TO THE

CAMPAIGN, HE SAID.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME

THAT THE PUBLIC HAS SEEN

CLEAR EVIDENCE OF SENIOR

LEVEL MEMBERS OF THE

CAMPAIGN MEETING WITH

RUSSIANS TO TRY TO OBTAIN

INFORMATION THAT MIGHT

HURT THE CAMPAIGN OF

HILLARY CLINTON.

Reporter: IN THE

PAST, THE PRESIDENT'S SON

DENIED HAVING ANY CONTACT

WITH RUSSIANS ABOUT THE

CAMPAIGN.

THE WHITE HOUSE DEPUTY

PRESS SECRETARY SAYS THE

CAMPAIGN NEVER FOLLOWED UP

ON THE MEETING, AND

NEITHER TRUMP, JR. NOR THE

CAMPAIGN NEVER CONCLUDED

WITH ANYONE TO INFLUENCE

THE ELECTION.

AND SHE SAID DONALD TRUMP

ONLY RECENTLY LEARNED OF

THAT.

THEY RELEASED A STATEMENT

THAT IT IS MUCH TO DO

ABOUT NOTHING.

BUT FOUR OF THE MEMOS

JAMES COMEY WROTE

CONTAINED CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION.

THE REVELATION REPORTED BY

THE HILL UNDERCUTS COMEY'S

CLAIM DURING THE SENATE

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE

LAST MONTH THAT HE

BELIEVED THAT THE

INFORMATION IN THE MEMOS

WERE UNCLASSIFIED.

I UNDERSTOOD THIS TO BE

MY RECOLLECTION RECORDED

OF MY CONVERSATION WITH

THE PRESIDENT.

Reporter: COMEY

REVEALED DURING TESTIMONY

THAT HE SHARED THE MEMOS

WITH A LAW PROFESSOR.

THE LAW POINTS OUT THAT

COMEY BROKE HIS OWN

NATION'S RULES, AND BROKE

THE RULES THAT HE PUBLICLY

CRITICIZED HILLARY CLINTON

FOR, REGARDING HER

DECISION TO KEEP

CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS AFTER

LEAVING THE STATE

DEPARTMENT IN 2013.

COLUMBIA LAW PROFESSOR

DANIEL RICKMAN TOLD CBN

NEWS, JIM COMEY NEVER GAVE

ME A MEMO THAT WAS

CLASSIFIED.

MEMOS THAT WENT TO

CONGRESS AND NOT ME MAY

WELL HAVE BEEN CLASSIFIED.

PRESIDENT TRUMP RESPONDED

TO THE REPORT ABOUT COMEY

BY TWEETING: "JAMES COMEY

LEAKED CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION TO THE MEDIA.

THAT IS SO ILLEGAL."

NOW CONGRESSIONAL

INVESTIGATORS WILL LOOK

INTO COMEY'S MO MEMOS,

INCLUDING WHEN THE

GOVERNMENT DECIDED THEY

CONTAINED CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION, BEFORE OR

AFTER COMEY SHARED THAT

EMCBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

Efrem: WILDFIRES ARE

RAGING ACROSS THE WESTERN

PART OF THE COUNTRY, AND

THOUSANDS HAVE BEEN

EVACUATED.

Charlene: IN

CALIFORNIA, FIREFIGHTERS

ARE BATTLING 14 LARGE

FIRES FROM THE AIR AND ON

THE GROUND.

THE BLAZING INFERNOS HAVE

FORCED THOUSANDS FROM

THEIR HOMES.

ONE FIRE, CALLED THE ALAMO

FIRE, BURNING IN SANT SANTA

BARBARA COUNTIES IS

COVERING MANY AREAS.

FLAMES SHUT DOWN A HIGHWAY

AND A NEARBY SUMMER CAMP.

A BULLDOZER HELPED TO

BREAKTHROUGH THE FLAMES TO

RESCUE THE KIDS.

THERE WAS THESE TREES

THAT WERE SUPER HIGH, AND

THEY WERE EXPLODING.

Charlene: THIS TIME

LAPS VIDEO SHOWS HOW

QUICKLY THE FIRE BURNED

ACROSS SANTA BARBARA.

NEARLY 40 FIRES ARE

BURNING FROM THE SOUTHWEST

TO THE ROCKIES.

IN ARIZONA, OFFICIALS SAY

A FOREST FIRE IN ONE

COUNTY HAS BURNED OVER

35,000 ACRES.

MEANWHILE, IN OROVILLE,

CALIFORNIA, RESIDENTS WHO

ESCAPED THE FIRES ARE

GRATEFUL TO BE ALIVE.

OVER THAT RIDGE, IF

THERE IS A THING SUCH AS

HELL, IT WAS ON THE OTHER

SIDE OF THAT RIDGE.

BECAUSE THAT GLOW WAS JUST

COMING UP OUT OF THERE.

WE'RE LUCKY; WE'RE

OKAY.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: A U.S.

MILITARY FLAME USED FOR

REFUELING, CRASHED INTO A

FIELD IN RURAL

MISSISSIPPI, KILLING AT

LEAST 16 PEOPLE.

THE FLAMES ENGULFED AN

AREA BEAN FIELD, AND

DEBRIS WAS SPREAD FOR

MILES.

ALTHOUGH THE FIRE WAS PUT

OUT, MISSISSIPPI OFFICIALS

SAY THE CRASH SITE IS

STILL QUITE DANGEROUS.

WE DON'T WANT NOBODY

OUT THERE.

THERE IS FUEL EVERYWHERE.

WE DON'T WANT ANYBODY

WITHOUT RESPONDERS IN THE

AREA.

Efrem: FIRE OFFICIALS

DID NOT RELEASE

INFORMATION ON WHAT CAUSED

THE CRASH OR WHERE THE

FLIGHT ORIGINATED.

> A SOLDIER IN THE U.S.

ARMY LIVING IN HAWAII IS

FACING CHARGES OF

TERRORISM.

INVESTIGATORS SAY

34-YEAR-OLD AKAKA CANE

PLEDGED OUT ALLEGIANCE TO

ISIS, AND HELPED TO BUY A

DRONE FOR THE TERRORIST

GROUP TO USE AGAINST

AMERICAN FORCES.

HIS FATHER SAYS HE IS

SHOCKED BY THE

ALLEGATIONS.

I'M IN SHOCK.

I REALLY AM.

I WAS QUITE CONCERNED WHEN

HE CAME BACK FROM A TOUR

IN AFGHANISTAN, ONE TOUR

IN IRAQ.

I THOUGHT HE HAD PTSD, BUT

HE HAS NEVER, EVER TALKED

ABOUT ISIS OR ANYTHING

LIKE THAT.

Efrem: CANE'S

ATTORNEY SAYS IT APPEARS

HE MAY SUFFER FROM

SERVICE-RELATED MENTAL

HEALTH ISSUES, AND THE

GOVERNMENT WAS AWARE OF

IT, BUT NEGLECTED TO TREAT

HIM.

HE APPEARED IN FEDERAL

COURT ON TERRORISM

CHARGES.

HE FACE A DETENTION

HEARING ON THURSDAY.

> THE PARENTS OF THE

AILING 11-MONTH-OLD U.K.

CHILD, CHARLIE GARD, AND

BREATHING A SIGH OF

RELIEF.

DEMONSTRATORS LINED THE

STREETS AS THE JUDGE

DECIDED TO SET A NEW

HEARING FOR CONNIE YATES

AND CHRIS GARD.

THE COUPLE MUST PRESENT

NEW EVIDENCE THEIR SON

SHOULD RECEIVE

EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT IN

AMERICA.

THEY HAVE BEEN FIGHTING TO

SAVE THEIR SON'S LIFE FOR

THE LAST YEAR AFTER THE

U.K. HIGH COURT RULED IN

FAVOR OF DOCTORS WHO SAID

HE SHOULD, QUOTE, "DIE

WITH DIGNITY."

THE NEW HEARING IS SET FOR

THURSDAY.

> THERE ISN'T A PERSON

WATCHING US RIGHT NOW THAT

HAS NOT BEEN TOUCHED BY

CANCER.

BUT AS LORIE JOHNSON SHOWS

US, A NEW CANCER DRUG IS

PROVING TO HAVE NEW HOPE

FOR THE DREADED ILLNESS.

Lorie: SCIENTISTS

BELIEVE THEIR NEW DRUG,

CPI613 IS A BREAKTHROUGH

FOR PEOPLE SUFFERING FROM

SOME OF THE MOST

DEVASTATING TYPES OF

CANCER, SUCH AS

PANCREATIC, LYMPHOMA AND

LUNGS.

THIS IS A VIAL OF CPI613.

IT IS ADMINISTERED TO

CANCER PATIENTS

INTRAVENOUSLY IN A

HOSPITAL.

CANCER CELLS HAVE

DIFFERENT NUTRITIONAL

NEEDS THAN HEALTHY CELLS.

CPI613 TARGETS CANCER

METABOLISM, WHICH IS A

RELATIVELY NEW WAY OF

TREATING THE DISEASE.

AT RAFAEL, WE'RE ON THE

CUSP OF SOME EXCITING

TIMES AHEAD.

Lorie: IT HAS

PERFORMED VERY WELL IN

CLINICAL TRIALS, AND COULD

BE ON THE MARKETS AS SOON

AS NEXT YEAR.

BUT PEOPLE WHO NEED IT

RIGHT NOW MIGHT QUALIFY

FOR WHAT IS CALLED

COMPASSIONATE USE.

SO WE CURRENTLY DO NOT

CHARGE FOR COMPASSIONATE

USE.

WE ACTUALLY BELIEVE IN

HELPING, AND SO WE

CURRENTLY GIVE OUR DRUG

WITHOUT CHARGING ANYTHING

FOR COMPASSIONATE USE.

Lorie: CPI613

REPORTEDLY HAS FEWER SIDE

EFFECTS THAN OTHER CANCER

DRUGS.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: FROM FOOTBALL

TO FILM, WE ARE SITTING

DOWN WITH "WAR ROOM" STAR

T.C. STALLINGS, AND

LEARNING ABOUT HIS

PLAYBOOK FOR THE LIFE.

Efrem: T.C. STALLINGS

STARRED IN THE FILM "WAR

ROOM."

HE WENT FROM A FOOTBALL

CAREER TO A CAREER IN

FRONT OF THE CAMERA.

WE'RE SITTING DOWN WITH

HIM IN "STUDIO 5" TO TALK

ABOUT HIS LATEST BOOK,

"PLAYING ON GOD'S TEAM."

ALL RIGHT, I SAID IT.

I'M TIRED OF HER JUNK.

WHAT DO YOU WANT, MAN?

YOU MEAN RIGHT NOW?

YEAH.

WELL, I WOULD KILL FOR

A HOT FUDGE SU SUNDAE AND TWO

SCOOPS OF ICE CREAM, WITH

MOUNDS OF WHIPPED CREAM ON

TOP.

OH, REALLY.

DAD, IT IS AN OPEN

RINK.

YOU CAN END THE FREE-STYLE

COMPETITION.

LET ME THINK ABOUT IT,

ALL RIGHT?

Efrem: WERE YOU

ALWAYS PLAYING ON GOD'S

TEAM?

WELL, I THINK I WAS

ALWAYS ON IT, BUT I WASN'T

PLAYING -- DEFINITELY

WASN'T PLAYING THE WAY HE

CALLED ME TO PLAY.

I LIKEN IT TO WHEN I WENT

ON MY FOOTBALL TEAM.

I GAVE IT ALL I HAD, BUT I

CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT MY

CAREER WOULD BE LIKE IF

WHEN I JOINED THE TEAM,

WHEN THE COACH SAID, GET

IN THE GAME, AND I SAID,

NO, I'M GOOD.

WHEN THE COACH SAID, LEARN

THIS PLAY, AND I SAID, I

DO WHAT I WANT TO DO OUT

THERE.

THAT WAS MORE THE TYPE OF

PLAYER I WAS BEING ON

GOD'S TEAM.

I BELIEVED IN MY COACH,

JESUS, BUT I WASN'T

LETTING HIM BE LORD.

Efrem: PEOPLE HEARING

THAT WILL SAY, WELL, DOES

THIS MEAN IF I ACCEPT AND

MAKE JESUS LORD OF MY

LIFE, THAT MY LIFE IS

GOING TO BE SMOOTH

SAILING.

AND I KNOW THAT'S THE

CASE.

YOU EXPERIENCED

DIFFICULTY, BOUTS WITH

HOMELESSNESS.

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING

ABOUT THE LORD AND SAVIOR

OF YOUR LIFE DURING THOSE

DIFFICULT TIMES?

WELL, FOR ME, THIS IS

WHY I SAY, KNOW YOUR

PLAYBOOK.

THE BIBLE IS SO IMPORTANT

IN THE GAME OF LIFE.

I COULD POINT BACK TO

PROMISES IN SCRIPTURE THAT

THIS IS THE ROAD I WOULD

BE TRAVELLING.

HE SAID, IN THIS LIFE,

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE

TROUBLE.

THAT'S A PROMISE.

I KNOW THERE IS TROUBLE

COMING.

AND ANYONE WHO CHOOSES TO

LIVE A GODLY LIFE WILL BE

PERSECUTED.

THAT'S A PROMPTS.

PROMISE.

SO IN GOD'S PLAN IT TELLS

YOU, IT IS GOING TO BE

ROUGH.

BUT MAKES THE SMOOTH PART

ABOUT IT IS HE HAS A

PROVISION FOR ALL OF THESE

THINGS.

HE SAYS, IN THIS LIFE YOU

WILL HAVE TROUBLE, BUT

TAKE HEART, I'VE OVERCOME

OF WORLD.

SO I'VE GOT A PLAN FOR

YOU.

SO ALL OF MY BUMPS AND

BRUISES MAKE SENSE.

THAT'S THE KIND OF LIFE I

WANT TO LIVE.

IN PLAYING ON GOD'S TEAM

AND LETTING GOD LEAD YOUR

LIFE, YOUR BUMPS AND

BRUISES MAKE SENSE.

AS OPPOSED TO WHEN I DO MY

OWN THING, I'M HURTING

MYSELF AND OTHER PEOPLE.

AND I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS

IS HAPPENING.

ME PURSUING MY OWN GOALS

AND DREAMS -- THERE AREN'T

PROVISIONS FOR THOSE

THINGS.

I HANG IN THERE BECAUSE I

KNOW IT IS SUPPOSED TO

HAPPEN.

THAT'S WHY IT IS WRONG AND

FALSE TO TELL PEOPLE THAT

A LIFE IN CHRIST IS SMOOTH

SAILING.

BECAUSE THEY COME IN WITH

THESE FALSE EXPECTATIONS

OF NO ISSUES, AND THAT'S

NOT EVEN BIBLICAL.

SO THAT'S HOW I KEEP WITH

IT.

Efrem: WE BEGAN THIS

SEGMENT LOOKING AT SCENES

OF YOU ON SCREEN.

YOU ALSO HAD A

PROFESSIONAL ATHLETIC

CAREER, FOOTBALL PLAYER.

HOW DID YOU MAKE THE

TRANSITION.

WAS ACTING ALWAYS IN YOU?

IT WAS IN MY AS A

HOBBY.

IT WAS IN MY AS FUN.

IN CHURCH, WHERE YOU GO DO

THE SUNDAY PLAYS AND THE

EASTER PLAYS.

I USED TO LOVE IT.

I LIKED THAT ATTENTION,

HAVING FUN DURING THE

PLAYS.

BUT FOOTBALL WAS A DEEP

ASPIRATION.

Efrem: I WANT TO GO

BACK IN TIME FOR A SECOND,

IF I CAN GET THIS TO WORK,

AND LOOK AT SOMETHING

EARLY ON AND SEE IF YOU

REMEMBER THIS AND WHAT YOU

DO REMEMBER.

[LAUGHTER]

NEXT TIME ON "KING OF

THE JUNGLE," THE NEWLY

CROWNED KING OF THE JUNGLE

WILL HEAD OUT ON HIS VERY

OWN ADVENTURE.

I'M ABOUT TO SEE SOME

CRAZY STUFF.

ONCE AGAIN, HERE WE

ARE.

I'M ON HAROLD'S PLANET,

AND THIS IS IN 2005.

AND, AGAIN -- THIS IS WHAT

I MEAN BY FUN.

I WENT TO COLLEGE AND I

HAD GRADUATED, BUT I WAS

PLAYING PRO FOOTBALL FOR

FOUR YEARS.

AND ANIMAL PLANET IS

AUDITIONING FOR A REALITY

TV SERIES, AND I'M, LIKE,

THAT'S A FUN WAY TO SPEND

YOUR SUMMER.

SO ON A WHIM, I AUDITION,

AND THEY PICKED ME.

I WAS, LIKE, THIS IS

CRAZY.

I HAD A DECISION TO MAKE.

IN THE MIDDLE OF MY UP

COMING SEASON, I DECIDED,

HOW OFTEN DO YOU GO AND

GET TO DO SOMETHING LIKE

THIS.

I DIDN'T EXPECT THING FROM

IT.

SO IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

SEASON, THEY ANNOUNCED TO

THE TEAM I WAS HEADING TO

ANIMAL PLANET TO DO A TV

SHOW, AND I'LL BE BACK,

AND LO AND BEHOLD, I WIN

THE WHOLE SHOW.

Efrem: I KNOW YOU'RE

BUSY IN 2016, AND AT LEAST

SIX MOVIES WE COULD LOOK

FORWARD TO IN 2017.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU THE

TITLE AND YOU GIVE US ANY

UPDATES YOU CAN GIVE US.

"A QUESTION OF FAITH."

"A QUESTION OF FAITH,"

A GREAT, GREAT FILM.

I GOT A CHANCE TO SEE SOME

SCENES.

SHOT THAT IN ATLANTA.

MAN, THEY DID SUCH A GREAT

JOB WITH THIS FILM.

KIM FIELDS IS IN IT.

RICHARD T. JONES IS IN IT.

THOMAS C. HOWELL IS IN IT

AND GREG ALLEN.

SO IT IS A NICE CAST.

A GREAT CAST.

Efrem: AND "THE

PASTOR."

"THE PASTOR," I

ACTUALLY JUST WRAPPED UP

ON THAT FILM.

I PLAY A DETECTIVE AND A

PASTOR, WHO COMES TO A

TOWN, AND HE IS HELPING TO

RESURRECT A CHURCH IN THE

CITY THAT IS READY TO GIVE

UP.

AND I'M, LIKE, THE ONLY

DETECTIVE LEFT THAT HAS

SOME FEELING THAT THINGS

CAN BE BETTER.

SO I'M BEATING CRIME.

BUT HE HAS A VERY

INTERESTING WAY OF

REACHING SOME OF THE

FELLOWS IN THE CITY.

HE IS NOT YOUR EVERY DAY

PASTOR.

THERE IS THE HINT THERE.

ALL OF THESE ARE REALLY

GOOD STORIES, AND, MAN,

FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO

CHOOSE SIX IN 2016 WAS

INCREDIBLE.

THAT'S WHAT I WENT THERE

FOR.

Efrem: WELL, IT IS

ALWAYS GREAT TO BE IN YOUR

COMPANY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME, BROTHER.

Efrem: A NETWORK OF

BELIEVERS PRAYING FOR

HOLLYWOOD.

MEET THE PEOPLE MAKING A

DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD'S

MOST INFLUENTIAL FIELD.

THAT STORY IS NEXT.

Efrem: CHRISTIANS ARE

ACTIVE AND BUSY IN

HOLLYWOOD.

IT'S A HEADLINE YOU DON'T

HEAR OFTEN.

BUT AS CHARLENE AARON

SHOWS US, ONE GROUP OF

PEOPLE ARE AIMING TO

CHANGE THAT, ONE LIFE AT A

TIME.

Charlene: THAT BOX

OFFICE SUCCESS IS ANY

INDICATION, CHRISTIAN

ENTERTAINMENT IS ON THE

RISE EN HOLLYWOOD.

IN HOLLYWOOD.

FAITH-BASED FILMS, SUCH AS

"THE SHACK," AND NOW "THE

CASE FOR CHRIST," HAVE

SCORED WITH AUDIENCES

NATIONWIDE.

UNFORTUNATELY, CHRISTIANS

WHO LIVE OUT THEIR FAITH

OFTEN BECOME TARGETS.

I LOVE JESUS.

MY FAITH IS MY WHOLE LIFE.

I LOVE THE RELATIONSHIP I

HAVE WITH GOD.

Charlene: ACTRESS

CACANDACE CAMERON BUR WAS

INSTANTLY MOCKED.

BURE ISN'T ALONE.

YOU THINK YOU'RE

SMARTER THUNDER ME.

THAN ME.

IN THAT CLASSROOM, THERE

IS A GOD, AND I'M HIM.

Charlene: WHILE KEVIN

SORBO MADE THIS MARK AS

HERCULES, HIS RECENT MARK

WAS IN THE FAITH-BASED

FILM "GOD'S NOT DEAD."

HE SAID HIS STANCE FOR

CHRIST PREVENTED HIM FROM

BEING CONSIDERED FOR

CERTAIN ROLES.

"I DID HERCULES FOR SEVEN

YEARS.

BUT THEN FOR ME TO GET

CALLED AND TO READ FOR

ANYTHING, IT JUST DROPPED

DRASTICALLY.

WHEN I CAME OUT AS A

CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN."

FORMER FILM PRODUCER KAREN

COVELL WANTS TO CHANGE

STORIES LIKE THAT THROUGH

PRAYER.

OH, MY GOODNESS,

HOLLYWOOD IS A MISSION

FIELD.

Charlene: 16 YEARS

AGO, SHE STARTED THE

HOLLYWOOD PRAYER NETWORK,

DEDICATED TO BRINGING

CHRISTIANITY TO THE

ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY.

I HAD NO INTENTION OF

DOING MINISTRY IN MY LIFE.

I WANTED TO BE A PRODUCER,

AND THAT'S ALL I WANTED.

AND AS THE YEARS WERE

GOING ON, I STARTED

THINKING, YOU KNOW, I'M

LIVING WITH A FOOT IN TWO

DIFFERENT WORLDS, AND

NEITHER WORLD GETS THE

OTHER.

I'M PART OF THE CHURCH AND

I'M A PART OF HOLLYWOOD.

AND THE CHURCH HATES

HOLLYWOOD, AND HOLLYWOOD

HATES THE CHURCH.

Charlene: THERE WAS A

BACKLASH DURING A GAY

MOMENT IN BEAUTY AND THE

BEAST.

I THOUGHT, IF I COULD

GET THE CHURCH TO START

PRAYING FOR THE PEOPLE IN

HOLLYWOOD, THAT THEY'LL

STOP HATING THEM, AND

MAYBE THEY'LL START

GETTING A HEART FOR THESE

PEOPLE AS CREATIONS OF GOD

WHO ARE JUST LOST AND WHO

JUST NEED TO KNOW JESUS.

Charlene: THE PRAYER

NETWORK BOASTS 130

CHAPTERS IN 30 COUNTRIES.

INTERCESSORS PRAY FOR

ACTORS, DIRECTORS, NEW

MOVIES, AND MORE.

WE PRAY FOR TV PILOT

SEASON IN THE FALL.

WE PRAY FOR WHAT IS GOING

ON HERE.

AND WE PRAY FOR PEOPLE.

WE PRAY FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE

HURTING, PEOPLE WHO MIGHT

BE OPEN TO THE LORD.

WE CELEBRATE PEOPLE WHO DO

KNOW THE LORD.

Charlene: AND SHE

SAID MANY ARE RECEPTIVE

FOTOOFFERS OF PRAYER.

MOST OF THE TIME PEOPLE

START CRYING WHEN I PRAY

FOR THEM BECAUSE SOMETHING

OF THE LORD TOUCHES THEIR

HEART AND THEY KNOW IT IS

TRUE AND SINCERE.

THE HUNGER FOR WANTING

LOVE IS SO POWERFUL HERE.

Charlene: A WEEKLY

BIBLE STUDY ALSO BRINGS

CHRISTIANS HERE TOGETHER

FOR ENCOURAGEMENT AND

STRENGTH.

WE HAVE PEOPLE FROM ALL

WALKS OF LIFE, ACTORS AND

DIRECTORS AND COSTUME

PEOPLE AND PROP MASTERS,

AND BEHIND THE SCENES

CREW.

WE CANNOT DO THIS THING

ALONE.

THIS CITY IS HONESTLY ONE

OF THE LONELIEST CITIES.

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW

IMPORTANT IT IS THAT WE

FEEL SUPPORTED BY THE

PEOPLE OF GOD.

I'M HERE BECAUSE THIS

IS A REALLY DIFFICULT

PLACE.

IF YOU KNEW ME, YOU WOULD

HAVE SEEN ME SLURRING MY

WORDS BY THE TIME THE

SEASON GOT FARTHER IN.

IT WAS A DIFFICULT PLACE.

Charlene:

CHRISTIANITY MAY NEVER BE

POPULAR HERE IN HOLLYWOOD,

BUT THE HOLLYWOOD NETWORK

IS CONFIDENT IT IS MAKING

A DIFFERENT.

WHEN SHE FIRST ARRIVED IN

HOLLYWOOD, COVELL SAID SHE

COULD HARDLY FIND OTHER

CHRISTIAN.

AND NOW SHE KNOWS AT LEAST

10,000 PEOPLE WHO HAVE

ANSWERED THE CALL.

WE HAVE PRAYER GROUPS

AND BIBLE STUDIES ON EVERY

STUDIO LOT.

Charlene: SHE HOPES

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE ONE

PRAYER AT A TIME.

I HAVE PERSONALLY LED

PEOPLE TO THE LORD, AND

THAT'S A THRILL.

I JUST WANT TO PLANT A

SEED, TRUST THAT SOME DAY

I'LL FIND OUT THAT THAT

MADE A DIFFERENCE.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: WHAT A

BEAUTIFUL STORY AND

POWERFUL WORK.

STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Efrem: IT IS TIME FOR

YOUR TUESDAY TWEETABLE.

IT IS A MESSAGE OF HOPE, I

HOPE WILL SERVE AS AN

INSPIRATION AND MOVE YOU

TO SHARE IT WITH OTHERS.

IF YOU ARE WAITING FOR

SOMETHING TO CHANGE IN

YOUR LIFE AND DEPENDING ON

GOD TO DO IT, CONSIDER

THIS: WORK WHILE YOU WAIT.

BEING BUSY GIVES GOD

SOMETHING TO BLESS.

WITH THAT WORD, GET BUSY

THIS TUESDAY, AND BE SURE

TO GET ABOUT YOUR FATHER'S

BUSINESS AND MAKE THIS A

TERRIFIC DAY.

> THAT IS GOING TO DO IT
