> THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN

NEWSWATCH. I'M HEATHER

SELLS.

AMERICANS WAITING FOR

LAWMAKERS TO

REPEAL AND REPLACE OBAMACARE

BUT THEY

ARE FACING ANOTHER CHALLENGE

AFTER

SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN LEFT THE

CAPITOL

FOR SURGERY ON HIS EYE. THAT

LEAVES

ANOTHER VOTE SHORT AND NOW

THEY ARE

IN LIMBO.

TO ADD TO THAT, THE

CONGRESSIONAL

BUDGET OFFICE IS ALSO

DELAYING IT'S

ANALYSIS OF THE BILL. JANET

BROWDER

HAS THE LATEST.

IT'S A MAJOR SETBACK FOR

THE

SENATE HOUSE BILL.

THE VOTE DELAYED BOUGHT

OF

REPUBLICAN SENATOR.

SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN IS

RECOVERING IN

ARIZONA AFTER A SURGERY TO

REMOVE A

BLOOD CLOT ABOVE HIS LEFT

EYE.

McCONNELL ANNOUNCED THEIS

WEEKEND.

MCCAIN'S ABSENCE AFTER

PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S PROGRESS.

WE ARE VERY VERY CLOSE TO

ENDING

THIS HEALTHCARE NIGHTMARE.

WITH TWO REPUBLICANS

OPPOSED.

DOES SENATOR McCONNELL

HAVE THE

VOTES TO PASS THIS REVISED

BILL?

I DON'T THINK RIGHT NOW

HE DOES.

SENATOR PAUL RAND SAYS IT

DOESN'T

GO FAR ENOUGH. ALSO

WITHHOLDING HER

SUPPORT BECAUSE IT WOULD

SLOW THE

RATE OF GROWTH ON SPENDING

ON

MEDICAID.

THIS BILL WOULD MAKE

SWEEPING AND

DEEP CUTS IN THE MEDICAID

PROGRAM

WHICH HAS BEEN A SAFETY NET

PROGRAM

ON THE BOOKS FOR MORE THAN

50 YEARS.

MCCAIN AND EIGHT OTHERS

HAVE

EXPRESSED DOUBTS ABOUT THE

BILL.

IF THEY VOTE NO, IT FAILS.

WITH THE VOTE NOW TABLED,

THERE IS

EVEN MORE PRESSURE ON

LAWMAKERS TO

DELIVER ON SOMETHING MANY

HAVE

PROMISED FOR YEARS.

REPEALING AND REPLACING

OBAMACARE

WHICH THEY WARN IS

COLLAPSING.

THEY SAY IF THIS BILL

DOESN'T WORK,

THEY WILL HAVE TO COME UP

WITH A

DIFFERENT PLAN. REPORTING

FROM

WASHINGTON, JANET BROWDER,

CBN NEWS.

AUTHORITIES WILL CONTINUE

SEARCHING FOR A MISSING BOY

TODAY

AFTER A FLASH FLOOD TORE

OVER A SPOT

OVER THE WEEKEND.

THE FLOOD KILLED NINE PEOPLE

INCLUDING CHILDREN. YOU CAN

SEE WHAT

HAPPENED.

AN INTENSE STORM HIT THIS

AREA.

IT WAS AN AREA WHERE PEOPLE

WERE

SITTING WITH CHAIRS IN THE

NORTH OF

PHOENIX. AUTHORITIES HAVE

RECOVERED

FIVE CHILDREN AND 4 ADULTS

AND WILL

CONTINUE TO SEARCH TODAY.

> A BATHROOM ISSUE IS

CONTINUING

IN TEXAS. THEY WILL HOLD A

30 DAY

SESSION TO START TOMORROW

AND

BATHROOMS ARE ON THE AGENDA.

THEY

WANT A BATHROOM BUILT

SIMILAR TO THAT

H 2 BILL IN NORTH CAROLINA.

THEIR BILL WILL INCLUDE

USING

BATHROOMS THAT CORRESPOND TO

THEIR

BIRTH CERTIFICATE. HE HAS 20

BILLS HE

WOULD LIKE TO SEE LAWMAKERS

PASS

DURING THE SESSION.

IN LONDON, AMERICA IS

FIGHTING FOR

CHARLIE GARD WHERE DOCTORS

CAN USE A

LIFE SAVING TREATMENT.

WE TALKED TO ONE FAMILY WHO

SAYS THIS

DOCTOR HAS ALREADY HELPED TO

SAVE THE

LIFE OF THEIR CHILD.

LIKE ANY SIX-YEAR-OLD,

ARTHUR RICO

LOVES TO PLAY WITH TOYS AND

WATCH

VIDEOS. SOMETHING DOCTORS

THOUGHT HE

WOULD NEVER ENJOY. ARTHUR

RICO WAS

BORN HAPPY AND HEALTHY, BUT

AFTER HIS

BIRTHDAY, SOMETHING WENT

WRONG.

WE HAD NO IDEA.

HE STARTED SWEATING AND

COULDN'T

EAT AND HOLD HIS HEAD UP

STRAIGHT AND

AFTER SIX MONTHS THEY HAD AN

ANSWER.

HE HAD A RARE DISORDER

CALLED

MITOCHONDRIAL BRAIN

DISORDER. HE WAS

TOWARD THERE WAS NO CURE AND

HE WOULD

BE DEAD WITHIN SIX MONTHS.

I TOLD DOCTORS THANK YOU.

BUT WE ARE NOT TAKING OUR

BABY HOME

TO DIE.

EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT

ARTHUR RICO

HAS DEFIED THE ODDS.

HE CAN'T WALK OR TALK AND

REQUIRES

ROUND THE CLOCK CARE.

STILL HIS FAMILY BELIEVES

THE

PROGRESS HE'S MADE HAS MADE

EVERY --

HEARTACHE ENDURED.

NONE OF THAT MATTERS.

HE'S HAPPY AND HE'S THE JOY

OF OUR

LIVES.

THEY ARE IN BALTIMORE

WITH THEIR

SON ARTHUR RICO.

BUT THE LIFE OF CHARLIE GARD

IS STILL

IN QUESTION.

I'M STILL UNCLEAR WHY WE

ARE NOT

ALLOWED TO TAKE OUR BOY.

IF THERE WAS A PLAN THAT

MY SON

CAN BE SAVED AND ANYONE, I

DON'T CARE

IF IT WAS A JUDGE, A

DOCTOR, AN

ATTORNEY, IF THEY WERE

BLOCKING MY

CHILD FROM BEING SAVED,

HEAVEN AND

EARTH AND EVERYTHING IN

BETWEEN WILL

BE MOVED.

ART AND HIS WIFE OLGA

HAVE BEEN

REACHING OUT TO CHARLIE'S

PARENTS

OFFERING PRAYER AND ADVICE

AND

INCLUDING THEIR DAUGHTER WHO

IS

PLANNING TO MEET THEM IN

LONDON.

THEY ARE GRATEFUL AND

ESPECIALLY

GIVING CREDIT TO THE

PRESIDENT FOR

WEIGHING IN.

HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ON

MONDAY

AND PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED

ON SUNDAY

AND EVERYTHING CHANGED.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SAVED

CHARLIE GARD'S

LIFE.

ART SAYS WITH CONTINUED

TREATMENT

WITH THERAPY, HE BELIEVES

HIS SON

WILL EVENTUALLY BE CURED AND

WANTS

THE SAME OPPORTUNITY FOR

CHARLIE AND

HIS FAMILY.

MY SON IS GETTING

STRONGER AND

HAPPY AND DETERMINED LITTLE

GUY. I

LOOK AT HIM AND I FEEL LIKE

I WON THE

LOTTO. LIKE I AM THE

LUCKIEST DAD

AROUND BECAUSE WE THOUGHT HE

WAS

LEAVING US.

JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS,

BALTIMORE.

PRECIOUS.

THE JORDANIAN APARTMENT

HAS

PRAISED TERRORIST ON

CARRYING OUT ON

ATTACK ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT

LAST WEEK

AND CREDITS ISRAEL FOR

SHUTTING DOWN.

THEY CLOSED FRIDAY AND

OPENED ON

SUNDAY WHERE JEWISH WERE

ABLE TO PRAY

FOR THEIR FAMILIES. THEY

WERE ABLE TO

CLOSE IT AFTER THEY

INSTALLED CHECK

POINTS.

IN THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS,

PALESTINIANS HAVE KILLED 45

ISRAELIS.

COMING UP, A NEW KIND OF

FEMINISM,

ONE THAT INCLUDES, FAITH,

FAMILY AND

MOTHERHOOD. FIND OUT ABOUT

THIS GROUP

WHO IS TAKING A STAND FOR

ALL WOMEN.

WHEN MOST PEOPLE THINK

WHEN MOST PEOPLE THINK

ABOUT

FEMINIST WORDS LIKE PRO-LIFE

AND PRO

FAMILY USUALLY DON'T COME TO

MIND.

ONE GROUP WANTS TO CHANGE

THAT AND AS

CAITLIN BURKE REPORTS THEY

WANT TO

THINK OF A NEW WORD THAT

STANDS FOR

FAMILY AND MOTHERHOOD.

THEY WERE WORDS THAT

PEOPLE WANTED

TO BAN.

THAT CAUSED AN OUTCRY AND

LATER

APOLOGIZE SAYING THE WORD

SHOULDN'T

HAVE BEEN INCLUDED. IT

ORIGINALLY

MADE THE LIST BECAUSE SOME

ARGUED

THAT MODERN-DAY FEMINISM HAD

BECOME

LESS OF A CAUSE AND MORE OF

A BUZZ

WORD ESPECIALLY TO YOUNG

PEOPLE.

BEING A WORD IS A FACT.

BACK IN THE 50s IT WAS A

CAUSE,

FEMINISM WAS A CAUSE.

WHERE DID THINGS GO

WRONG? HAVING

FEMINISM WAS A MOVEMENT AND

MOVING

PROPERTY IN THE 1920s TO THE

2012

PUSH TO MAKE IT LEGAL FOR

WOMEN TO GO

TOPLESS IN PUBLIC.

AUTHOR EXPERIENCED THIS

FIRST HALF.

SHE WROTE A COLUMN IN THE

1970s.

A JOB SHE TOOK.

I HAD KEPT IT SECRET THAT

I HAD A

CHILD BECAUSE I WOULD BE

FIRED. YOU

WOULDN'T TELL PEOPLE THAT

YOU HAD

CHILDREN IF YOU WANTED A JOB.

IT WAS IN THE 50s AND 60s

AND 70s.

IT WAS HIGHLIGHTED BY

THIS AGENDA.

HERE BOOK EXPLAINED THAT

WHILE

FEMINISM CALLED FOR

EQUALITY, SAYING

COSMOS PLAYED A KEY ROLE IN

THIS THAT

A LITTLE LIBERATED WOMEN

WERE MADE

UP.

THAT THIS WOULD SET YOU

FREE.

OVER TIME WOMEN WERE

CONVINCED THAT

MORE AND MORE TO BE

GLAMOROUS AND

EXCITING WE HAD MORE AND

MORE WOMEN

COHABITING WITH THEIR

BOYFRIEND,

HAVING SEX ON THE FIRST AND

SECOND

DATE, WHATEVER.

THAT'S HOW THIS MIND WORKS.

THIS GAVE A DANGEROUS

EDGE TO

FEMINISM.

THAT WAS A FORM OF

MATRICIDE, THE

IDEA OF KILLING THIS IDEA OF

MOTHER,

OF NURTURE THAT THAT'S WEAK

AND THAT

WOMEN ARE JUST SLAVES IN THE

KITCHEN.

IN ESSENCE IT KILLS YOUR

ROOTS AND

YOUR BRANCHES AND YOU ARE

LEFT WITH

DEATH.

AS A YOUNG WIFE AND

MOTHER,

CAROLINA FELT THIS

MODERN-DAY

FEMINISM DIDN'T REPRESENT

WHO SHE WAS

AS A WOMAN AND LEFT HER WITH

MORE

QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS.

I WAS LEFT WITH WHERE DO

I BELONG?

SHE SAYS GOD GAVE HER THE

CIRCUMSTANCE TO GET THE

ANSWER SHE

WAS LOOKING FOR. IT WAS THE

DEATH OF

HER SISTER.

IT WAS LIKE THE ENTIRE

COMMUNITY

CAME OUT TO HER FUNERAL.

EVERYBODY CAME UP TO ME AND

ASKING ME

DID YOU KNOW THAT MONA DID

THIS OR

THAT.

IT WAS A VERY BIG DEAL. THEY

SAID,

DID YOU KNOW SHE HELPED ME

OUT OF

SUICIDE? THEY SAID THAT'S

TRUE

POWER, THAT'S POWERFUL AND

THAT'S THE

FEMINISM THAT I WANT.

SHE WOKE UP EARLY AND

HEADED TO

THE BEACH AND SHE SAID GOD

GAVE HER

THE OCEAN TO COME UP WITH

THESE NEW

IDEAS.

I FELT THESE ROUGH ROCKS

AND THERE

WAS A TINY WAVE COMING IN

AND WASHING

OVER THIS PART OF THE ROCK.

I JUST

GOT CURIOUS AND I LOOKED AT

THE UNDER

PART OF THE ROCK AND SAW

THAT IT HAD

ALL BEEN SMOOTHED OVER WITH

TIME.

THAT'S WHAT CHANGED WITH

CAROLINA

WITH THE WAY THE WAVES

CHANGED THE

ROCKS, IS HOW SHE CAN BE

CHANGED AS A

WOMAN.

THIS POLISHED ROCK WAS

BEAUTIFUL

AND THAT'S WHAT MONA DID.

THAT LED HER TO START A

BIG OCEAN,

A MOVEMENT TO SAVE MOTHER

AND

PRO-LIFE AND FOR FAMILY

CAUSES.

WE STAND FOR IDEAS THAT

SUSTAIN

FAITH, FAMILY AND MOTHERHOOD.

WE INSPIRE THE NOTION OF

FEMINISM.

THAT NOTION SUSPECT JUST

FOR MOM'S.

MEMBERS RANGE FROM SINGLE

WOMEN IN

THEIR 20s TO GRANDMOTHERS IN

THEIR

80s.

THIS IS HELPING WOMEN AROUND

THE

WORLD.

THIS IS SERVING WORLDWIDE

AND

SERVING IN YOUR HOME.

THEN THERE IS THE ELEMENT OF

PRAY.

SO, THERE ARE SOME ISSUES IN

THE

WORLD THAT ARE SO BIG AND SO

HORRIBLE

AND SO DARK, THAT SOMETIMES

ALL YOU

CAN DO IS PRAY.

A PRAYER IS ENOUGH.

LIKE ANY BIG MOVEMENT,

BIG OCEAN

SHARES IT'S OPPOSITION.

THERE ARE WOMEN WHO SAY

IT ISN'T

FEMINIST AND THERE ARE THOSE

THAT SAY

YOU CAN'T EMBRACE GOD OR

LIFE IF YOU

ARE FEMINIST.

CAROLINA HOPES BIG OCEAN

WILL

CREATE A POSITIVE MOVEMENT

TOWARDS

THE WORLD.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

> UP NEXT, THIS YOUNG

WORSHIP

LEADER SHOWS US THAT AGE IS

NOTHING

BUT A NUMBER.

FIND OUT HOW SHE IS GIVING

GOD THE

GLORY.

> CELEBRATION, EDUCATION

AND PRAISE

FILLED THE AIR.

WE BRING YOU INSIDE THE

UNIQUE EVENT

THAT BRINGS TOGETHER GOSPEL

ARTIST

FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

IN TINY TOWN IN VIRGINIA,

POPULATION 800, A REVOLUTION

CAME TO

TOWN AS THE SOUNDS OF PRAISE

AND

GOSPEL FILLED THE AIR WITH

THE 10TH

ANNIVERSARY.

I LOVE THE LORD AND JOY

FEST. I'M

GLAD IT'S CALLED JOY FEST.

IT'S TRANSFORMED TO A

FULL ON

FESTIVAL WITH MORE THAN

28,000

ATTENDEES EVERY YEAR.

PARTNER WITH

INTERNATIONAL THEY

BRING TOGETHER PEOPLE FOR

THIS TIME

OF PRAISE. DESPITE THE

SCORES OF

FANS, EACH ARTIST WE TALKED

TO

POINTED TO GOD FOR EVERY

ACHIEVEMENT

AND PURPOSE. LIKE TRAVIS

GREEN WHO

TOOK HOME 7 STELLAR AWARDS.

IT'S GREAT WHEN YOU GET

THIS BUT I

NEVER DID IT FOR THAT.

GREENE, WHO ALSO

PERFORMED AT THE

INAUGURATION OF PRESIDENT

TRUMP SAYS

GOD SAVED HIM SPIRITUALLY

TIME AND

AGAIN.

HE'S HERE FOR A SPECIAL

REASON.

FOR ME, I FELL OUT A

WINDOW, WE

ALL FELL AND GOD CATCHES US

OTHERWISE

WE WOULD LITERALLY BE ALL

DEAD.

HE NAVIGATED A CAREER IN

FILM,

TELEVISION ON THE HIT TV

SHOW THE MAN

AND OF COURSE MUSIC.

THE MAN SAY THEY STILL GET

BUTTERFLIES BEFORE THEY TAKE

THE

STAGE.

IT'S CALLED SCARED BEFORE

WE GO

ON. I NEVER WANT TO LOSE

THAT BECAUSE

I WANT THE LORD TO KNOW THAT

I'M

DEPENDENT ON HIM ALL THE

TIME AND

TRUST HIM TO GO BEFORE THE

PEOPLE.

KAYLA SERRANO WHO WENT ON

THE TV

SHOW BIG SHOT.

THE TIME I'M ON EARTH IS

PUT TO

GOOD USE BECAUSE MY MINISTRY

IS FOR

BELIEVERS AND TO SHOW PEOPLE

THAT OUR

MISSION IS TO GO AROUND THE

WORLD AND

BRING PEOPLE TO CHRIST.

CHRISTIAN -- A FORMER

MATH TEACHER

IS TEACHING A LESSON.

WITH HITS LIKE SALLY MAY

BACK AND NO

CAR NOTE, HE WANTS POOH --

YOUNG

PEOPLE TO BE EDUCATED

FINANCIALLY AND

SPIRITUALLY.

IF YOU MANAGE MONEY

PROPERLY, THAT

MONEY IS GOING TO BE USED AS

A

BLESSING TO OTHER PEOPLE.

WHEN WE GET

A LITTLE MONEY, HOW CAN WE

HANDLE IT

SO WE DON'T WASTE IT.

IT CAN BE A CELEBRATION

OF PRAISE.

BUT PERHAPS IT WAS SERRANO

WHO BUILD

THIS UP PERFECTLY WHEN HE

SAYS HIS

INSPIRATION COMES FROM ONE

PLACE.

GOD DOES IT ALL.

GOD DOES IT ALL. I LOVE

IT.

CBN NEWS IN VIRGINIA.

AS YOU JUST SAW, CALEB

SERRANO

MAYBE A PINT SIZE PACKAGE

BUT HIS

VOICE PACKS A BIG PUNCH.

WHEN HE SINGS EVERYONE IS

BLOWN AWAY

AND IS A GREAT KID WITH

WONDERFUL

PARENTS.

Efrem: THAT BOOMING VOICE

IS FROM

THE 5-YEAR-OLD CALEB SERRANO

ATTRACTING MILLIONS.

WHO ENCOURAGED YOU TO GET

UP AND

SING?

MY PAPA.

HE ASKED YOU TO GET UP

AND SING.

WHAT IS IT?

GOD GAVE ME A VOICE TO

SING. YES,

PAPA, STAND UP.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

YES.

PAPA WAS IN THE AUDIENCE

WHEN

CALEB MADE HIS APPEARANCE ON

THE HIT

SHOW LITTLE BIG SHOT.

HE'S ALWAYS LOVED MUSIC

BUT HE'S

BEEN SINGING SINCE HE WAS

NOT ABLE TO

TALK. IT'S A BLESSING THAT

SO MANY

PEOPLE ARE TOUCHED BY MY

LITTLE ONE.

MY BLESSING. I JUST HOPE WE

CONTINUE

TO DO WHAT WE HAVE BEEN

DOING.

IT'S WONDERFUL, IT'S

FABULOUS.

Efrem: I IMAGINE THOSE

BLESSINGS

CAME FOR YOU BEFORE THE

WORLD STARTED

SEEING.

ABSOLUTELY, YOU DON'T

REALLY SEE

THAT GIFT THAT YOU HAVE

UNTIL PEOPLE

START COMMENTING.

IT'S ALMOST LIKE, CALEB, BE

QUIET.

CLOSE THE DOOR.

YOU CAN'T HELP BUT PAY

ATTENTION

WHEN CALEB ALLOWED US TO

HEAR HIM AT

HIS REHEARSAL IN VIRGINIA.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE MEETING

HARRY

CONIC JUNIOR?

THAT WAS GREAT.

HE KNOWS.

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO HAVE

SUCH A

GIFTED SON?

IT'S TRULY A BLESSING.

THE WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE THE

FEELING.

THE RAW EMOTION, THE

ADULATION AND

IT'S JUST A DIFFERENT, IT'S

A

CHALLENGE.

IT'S REALLY A CHALLENGE.

WHAT'S BEEN THE BIGGEST

SURPRISE

TO YOU IN THIS JOURNEY?

THE BIGGEST SURPRISE

WOULD HAVE TO

BE JUST THE POSITIVE

FEEDBACK FROM

AROUND THE WORLD, NOT JUST

LOCAL, BUT

INTERNATIONALLY HOW OUR

PEOPLE ARE

REACHING OUT TO CALEB TO

TELL US

ABOUT HOW HE'S TOUCHING

THEIR LIVES

AND WHAT HIS GIFT HAS DONE

FOR THEM.

AND THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT

HAVE NEVER

SEEN HIM.

THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT ALL

THEY HAVE

SEEN ARE THE VIDEOS.

THEY NEVER SPENT THE TIME

WITH THIS

FUN LOVING CHALLENGING

FIVE-YEAR-OLD

THAT WE HAVE.

Efrem: YOUNG CALEB HAS

FANS FROM AS

FAR AS AUSTRALIA, NIGERIA

AND UKRAINE.

DID YOU SAY ASK YOUR

WIFE?

NOT AT ALL. WE ALL

BELIEVE IN OUR

ROLES AND NONE OF IT IS FOR

MINE.

I WILL TOTE THIS EQUIPMENT

AND DRIVE

THE CAR.

HE REALLY DOES TRY TO

SING.

BUT THEN AGAIN WHAT?

HE CAN'T.

THERE WE GO.

SO, WE'LL LEAVE THE SINGING

TO CALEB.
