George: THIS WEEK ON

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS,"

THE UNITED STATES AND

IRAQI TROOPS HAVE ISIS ON

THE RUN, BUT CAN IRAQ'S

CHRISTIANS REALLY GO BACK

HOME.

THE UNCERTAIN FUTURE OF

IRAQ'S CHURCH.

PLUS, VENEZUELA IS

DEVASTATING BY SOCIALISM,

AND PEOPLE ARE LITERALLY

STARVING IN THE STREET.

SEE WHAT THE COUNTRY'S

CHRISTIANS ARE DOING TO

CHANGE THE SITUATION.

> AND THE SAGA OF

CHARLIE GARD CONTINUES.

AN AMERICAN DOCTOR IS NOW

INVOLVED IN THE CASE.

WE'LL INTRODUCE YOU TO ONE

OF HIS PATIENTS AND SHOW

YOU HOW HE HAS DEFIED THE

ODDS.

> AND WELCOME TO

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

GEORGE AND WENDY ARE BOTH

ON ASSIGNMENT.

ALTHOUGH U.S. AND

COALITION FORCES HAVE

DRIVEN ISIS FROM MOSUL AND

OTHER IRAQI CITIES, THE

TASK OF REBUILDING

NORTHERN IRAQ REMAINS

ENORMOUS.

ONE OF THE TOUGHEST

QUESTIONS: WHAT WILL

BECOME OF THE PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS?

ERIC GONZALES SPOKE WITH

ONE ORGANIZATION WORKING

TO OFFER HOPE AND SUPPORT

TO THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW

JESUS.

Reporter: THESE ARE

THE SIGHTS OF VICTORY,

PEOPLE DANCING AND WAVING

FLAGS IN THE STREETS.

AND THESE ARE THE SOUNDS,

COMMANDERING DECLARING

HISTORIC SUCCESS AGAINST

ISIS.

OVER THE LAST THREE

YEARS, THROUGH IRAQI

DETERMINATION, ISIS HAS

BEEN ON AN INCREASINGLY

RAPID DECLINE, LOSING

TIKRIT, RAMADI AND NOW

MOSUL.

AND THE IRAQI FORCES, ON

THE OTHER HAND, HAVE

IMPROVED AND GOTTEN

STRONGER.

THIS VICTORY TODAY, IT

IS NOT A VICTORY OF IRAQI

PEOPLE.

THIS VICTORY IS FOR THE

WHOLE WORLD, A WORLD THAT

SUFFERS FROM THE ACTS OF

TERRORISM EVERYWHERE.

Reporter: AND THE

SUFFERING REMAINS, AS YOU

CAN SEE FROM THIS DRONE

FOOTAGE OF MOSUL'S OLD

CITY.

IT SHOWS WIDESPREAD

DEVASTATION ON A MASSIVE

SCALE.

BUILDINGS REDUCED TO

RUBBLE, AND SMOKE FROM

OCCASIONAL AIRSTRIKES

STILL RISING INTO THE SKY.

WE WERE OVER THERE BACK

IN APRIL, AND WHAT WE SAW

WAS THAT, YOU KNOW, THE

SUNNIS -- ISIS WENT

THROUGH AND SPRAYPAINTED

EACH HOME.

AND SAID THIS IS EITHER A

SUNNI HOME, A SHI'A HOME

OR A CHRISTIAN HOME.

IF IT WAS SHI'A OR

CHRISTIAN, THEY LIT IT ON

FIRE.

Reporter: JEFF KING

IS THE PRESIDENT OF

"INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN

CONCERN" WHICH ACTS AS A

BRITCBRIDGE BETWEEN THE

BELIEVERS IN FREE CONSULTS

AND THCOUNTRIES AND THE

PERSECUTED.

SOME WERE FORCED FROM

THEIR HOMES DUE TO ISIS,

MANY WITH ONLY THE CLOTHES

ON THEIR BACKS.

HIS TEAM TOOK THESE

PICTURES, IMAGES OF JESUS

USED AS TARGETS BY ISIS

FIGHTERS.

AND A PHOTO OF MARY, WE

ONLY PIECES OF HER FACE.

IF THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

CONVERT TO ISLAM, THEY

WANT THEM OUT OF THE

COUNTRY AND OUT OF THE

AREA.

Reporter: KING SAYS

MUCH OF THE U.S. AID IS

CHANNELLED ONCE IT GETS TO

IRAQ.

SO HIS ORGANIZATION WORKS

WITH CAPITOL HILL

LAWMAKERS TO SPECIFICALLY

HELP CHRISTIANS IN THE

WAR-TORN NATION.

OF THE 1.5 MILLION

CHRISTIANS CALLING IRAQ

HOME IN 2003, ONLY ABOUT

250,000 REMAIN.

HE SAID THE MAJORITY OF

CHRISTIANS HIS WORKERS

SPOKE WITH WANT TO COME

BACK.

THEY JUST NEED THE NEW

GOVERNMENT OF IRAQ TO HELP

THEM.

WHEN THAT HELP COMES,

THEY PRAISE GOD LIKE

CRAZY.

THEY SAY, MY GOSH, WE'RE

PART OF SOMETHING SO BIG.

Reporter: A FAMILY

DOING GOD'S WORK HERE ON

EARTH, SUPPORTING EACH

OTHER.

ERIC GONZALES, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

REFUGEES ARE FLEEING

FROM TERRIBLE SITUATIONS

AROUND THE WORLD, BUT

THEY'RE FINDING FEWER AND

FEWER PLACES TO GO.

YET EVEN AS MORE AND MORE

COUNTRIES ARE CLOSING

THEIR DOORS, AMERICA'S

LAST FRONTIER WANTS THE

WORLD TO KNOW IT IS WIDE

OPEN.

CAITLIN BURKE BRINGS US

THAT STORY FROM

ANCHORIDGE, ALASKA.

Caitlin: THEY FLEE

PERSECUTION, POVERTY, AND

WAR, WILLING TO LIVE IN

DANGEROUS REFUGEE CAMPS

ACROSS OCEANS AND IN OVER

CROWDED BOATS.

THE GOVERNMENT

IMPLEMENTED THE ETHNIC

CLEANSING POLICY, AND THEN

FORCEFULLY DISPLACED THAT

POPULATION OUT OF THE

COUNTRY.

Caitlin: THE LATEST

GLOBE TRENDS REPORT FROM

THE U.N. NOTES IN 2015

ALONE, VIOLENCE DROVE SOME

65 MILLION PEOPLE FROM

THEIR HOMES.

THAT'S MORE THAN THE

ENTIRE POPULATION OF

FRANCE.

INSTEAD OF DEVELOPING

BETTER ASYLUM SYSTEMS THAT

RECOGNIZE THE HARDSHIP AND

THE DIFFICULTIES AND THE

REASONS FOR PEOPLE TO

FLEE, BARRIERS ARE

ERECTED.

AND THE BARRIERS NEED NOT

BE PHYSICAL.

SOMETIMES THEY ARE

LEGISLATIVE BARRIERS.

Reporter: HE RECENTLY

REPORTED THAT THE SPACE

NEEDED TO PROVIDE THESE

PEOPLE HOMES FAR OU OUTWEIGHS

THE IN A MOMENT GIVEN BY

GOVERNMENT.

WHEN PEOPLE ONLY HEAR THE

STATISTICS, IT IS EASIER

TO IGNORE THE CRISIS.

BUT BEHIND THESE NUMBERS

ARE PEOPLE AND FAMILIES,

DRIVEN FROM THEIR HOMES

AND DRIVEN INTO EXILE.

THE CITY IS WORKING ON NEW

POLICIES TO HELP THE

REFUGEES WHO RESETTLE

HERE.

YOU CAN WALK THROUGH

ANY STORE, DOWN ANY

STREET, AND NOT KNOW HOW

MANY LANGUAGES YOU JUST

HEARD.

IT IS AN INTERCULTURAL

ARENA FOR US HERE.

IT HAS GIVEN US CERTAINLY

A VERY DIFFERENT VIEW THAN

WHAT PEOPLE THINK THEY

WOULD FIND IN ANCHORIDGE,

ALASKA.

Reporter: IN 2005,

THE CITY WON A GRANT FOR

INCLUSIVENESS FOR

IMMIGRANTS AND REFUGEES.

WE WANT TO KNOW HOW WE

CAN WORK WITH BUSINESS,

GOVERNMENT, AND THE

UNIVERSITIES, TO GIVE THEM

THAT OPPORTUNITY TO

SUCCEED.

Reporter: AS PART OF

THAT STRATEGY, THE

ANCHORIDGE COMMUNITY LAND

TRUST IS FOCUSED ON

REVITALIZING MOUNTAINVIEW.

WE HAVE PEOPLE FROM

LITERALLY EVERY CORNER OF

THE EARTH IN THIS ONE,

LITTLE, SMALL FOOTPRINT.

PEOPLE ARE COMING TOGETHER

TO CALL THIS ONE PLACE

HOME.

THE CITY IS WATCHING AND

THE NATION IS WATCHING HOW

IT ALL WORKS.

WHAT DOES HARMONY LOOK

LIKE?

WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES?

WHAT DO PEOPLE NEED?

Reporter: IN ITS

EFFORTS TO TRANSFORM

MOUNTAINVIEW, THE LAND

TRUST ASKS A LOT OF

QUESTIONS AND THEN TAKES

ACTION, BASED ON WHAT IT

LEARNS FROM THE RESIDENTS.

MOUNTAINVIEW WAS ALWAYS

SEEN AS A LAST RESORT

COMMUNITY.

PEOPLE WOULD STAY ON

AVERAGE A YEAR TO TWO

YEARS.

SINCE REVITALIZATION HAS

BEEN TAKING PLACE, THE

AVERAGE THEN YOU'R TENURE NOW IS TWO

TO FIVE YEARS.

OVER THE PAST FIVE

YEARS, WE HAVE RESETTLED A

LITTLE OVER 700 REFUGEES

HERE IN ANCHORIDGE.

Reporter: LISA TOLD

US ABOUT SPECIFIC

CHALLENGES THAT REFUGEES

FACE WHEN THEY FINALLY

FIND A PLACE TO START A

NEW LIFE.

ON AVERAGE, A REFUGEE

THAT IS RESETTLING IN THE

UNITED STATES HAS BEEN

DISPLACED FROM THEIR HOME

FOR, I THINK, 17 YEARS.

SO IMAGINE THAT.

THEY HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO

HAVE A HOME WHERE THEY

COULD LIVE, WHERE THEY

COULD SAFELY SEND THEIR

CHILD TO SCHOOL, WHERE

THEY COULD HAVE A JOB AND

SAVE MONEY FOR A VERY LONG

TIME BEFORE THEY'VE COME

HERE.

Reporter: C.F.S.

THEN WORKS WITH REFUGEES

ON MAKING THE TRANSITION

TO ALASKA BY HELPING WITH

LANGUAGE, JOB SKILLS, AND

SURVIVING THE HARSH

CLIMATE.

HARI RESETTLED HERE IN

2009.

HE QUICKLY LEARNED ENGLISH

AND FOUND A JOB,

DETERMINED TO BE

SUCCESSFUL IN HIS NEW

HOME.

REFUGEES WORK VERY

HARD.

THEY ARE VERY DEPENDABLE

PERSONS.

ONCE THEY GET THE JOB,

THEY WILL KEEP THE JOB.

AND THEY HAVE VERY STRONG

DETERMINATION THAT I HAVE

TO DO SOMETHING.

I HAVE TO COME UP FROM THE

BOTTOM LEVEL.

Reporter: GOING

FORWARD, ANCHORIDGE WILL

CONTINUE TO EXPLORE WHAT

MAKES ITS CITY A PLACE FOR

PEOPLE TO COME, STAY, AND

SUCCEED.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS,

ANCHORIDGE, ALASKA.

UP NEXT, THE FIGHT FOR

CHARLIE GARD.

THE U.K. BABY HAS A RARE

DISEASE.

WELL, THIS YOUNG MAN

SUFFERS FROM THE SAME

CONDITION.

SEE HOW EXPERIMENTAL

TREATMENT HAS HELPED HIM

TO BEAT THE ODDS.

THE MOTHER OF LITTLE

CHARLIE GARD WILL MAKE A

FINAL PLEA TO SAVE HER

CHILD'S LIFE, AS A BRITISH

JUDGE PREPARES TO HEAR

EVIDENCE IF THE

11-YEAR-OLD CAN LEAVE THE

HOSPITAL AND TRAVEL TO

AMERICA FOR TREATMENT.

DOCTORS IN LONDON WANT TO

REMOVE HIS VENTILATOR TO

END THE CHILD'S SUFFERING.

DESPITE SEVERAL SETBACKS

IN COURT, HIS PARENTS ARE

STILL FIGHTING FOR

CHARLIE.

THEY'VE RAISED

$1.7 MILLION TO PAY FOR

HER TRAVEL TO THE U.S.,

WHERE AND AMERICAN DOCTOR

IS WILLING TO TRY AN

EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT.

THE AMERICAN DOCTOR WHO IS

TRYING TO HELP CHARLIE

GARD HAS SEEN SOME SUCCESS

WITH HIS EXPERIMENTAL

TREATMENT.

JOHN JESSUP INTRODUCES US

TO ONE FAMILY WHO SAYS THE

DOCTOR HELPED SAVE THEIR

CHILD'S LIFE.

*

Reporter: LIKE ANY

6-YEAR-OLD, ARTHRICO LOVES

TO PLAY WITH TOYS AND

WATCH VIDEOS, SIMPLE

ACTIVITIES DOCTORS THOUGHT

HE WOULD NEVER ENJOY.

SHORTLY AFTER HIS FIRST

BIRTHDAY, HIS PARENTS

NOTICED SOMETHING WAS

WRONG.

WE HAD NO IDEA OF THE

STORM THAT WAS HEADING OUR

WAY.

Reporter: HE STARTED

SWEATING A LOT.

IT TOOK HIM LONGER TO EAT,

AND HE COULDN'T HOLD HIS

HEAD UP STRAIGHT.

AFTER THREE MONTHS OF

SLEEPLESS NIGHTS, THEY

FINALLY HAD AN ANSWER.

HE A RARE GENETIC DISORDER

CALLED MIGHT CO MIGHT MITOCHONDRAL

DISORDER.

DOCTORS TOLD HIS PARENTS

THERE WAS NO CURE AND HE

WOULD BE DEAD IN TWO

MONTHS.

DOCTOR, THANK YOU,

BECAUSE IF IT WASN'T FOR

YOU WE WOULDN'T KNOW WHAT

WAS WRONG WITH OUR SON.

BUT I CAN GUARANTEE YOU

WE'RE NOT TAKING OUR BABY

HOME TO DIE.

Reporter: THROUGH

EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT, HE

HAS DEFIED THE ODDS.

HE CAN'T WALK OR TALK AND

REQUIRES ROUND-THE-CLOCK

CARE.

STILL, HIS PARENTS BELIEVE

THE PROGRESS HE HAS MADE

IS WORTH EVERY HEARTACHE

THEY'VE ENDURED.

NONE OF THAT MATTERS.

WHAT MATTERS IS OUR SON IS

ALIVE.

HE IS HAPPY.

AND HE IS THE JOY OF OUR

LIVES.

Reporter: WHILE THESE

PEOPLE SAY THEIR HEART IS

RIGHT HERE IN BALTIMORE

WITH THEIR LITTLE SON,

ARTHURRICO, THEIR HEARTS

ARE WITH THE PARENTS,

WHERE THE LIF LIFE OF CHARLIE

GARD IS.

IF THERE WAS A PLAN

THAT MY SON CAN BE SAVED,

AND ANYONE -- I DON'T CARE

IF IT WAS A JUDGE, I DON'T

CARE IF IT WAS A DOCTOR, I

DON'T CARE IF IT WAS AN

ATTORNEY -- IF THEY WERE

BLOCKING MY CHILD FROM

BEING SAVED, HEAVEN AND

EARTH AND EVERYTHING IN

BETWEEN WILL BE MOVED.

Reporter: ART AND HIS

WIFE, OLGA, HAVE BEEN

REACHING OUT TO CHARLIE'S

PARENTS, OFFERING PRAYERS

AND ADVICE, AND EVEN PUT

HIM IN TOUCH WITH

ARTHURRICO DOCTOR.

HE ESPECIALLY CREDITS THE

PRESIDENT FOR WEIGHING IN.

PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED

ON A SUNDAY, AND THEN

EVERYTHING CHANGED.

SO PRESIDENT TRUMP CHANGED

CHARLIE GARD'S LIFE.

Reporter: HE SAYS

WITH THE CONTINUEED

TREATMENT OF EXPERIMENTAL

GENE THERAPY, HE BELIEVES

HIS SON WILL EVENTUALLY BE

CURED, AND HE WANTS THE

SAME OPPORTUNITY FOR

CHARLIE AND HIS FAMILY.

HE IS A DETERMINED

LITTLE GUY.

WHEN I LOOK AT HIM, I FEEL

LIKE I HAVE WON THE LOTTO.

I AM THE LUCKIEST DAD

AROUND BECAUSE WE THOUGHT

HE WAS LEAVING US.

AND JOHN JESSUP JOINS

US NOW.

JOHN, WHERE DO THINGS

STAND NOW FOR LITTLE

CHARLIE GARD?

Reporter: EARLY NEXT

WEEK THE COURT WILL HAVE

ITS FINAL HEARING TO

DETERMINE WHAT WILL HAPPEN

TO CHARLIE.

AND THEY WILL HEAR FROM

THE DOCTOR.

AND THEY'VE BEEN MEETING

WITH THE AMERICAN DOCTOR

TO SEE IF THERE WILL BE

ANY SUCCESS WITH THE

TREATMENT.

AND IT WILL BE THE

PARENTS' LAST ATTEMPT TO

BRING HIM TO THE UNITED

STATES.

THERE WILL BE A LARGE

PRO-LIFE RALLY WITH

SUPPORTERS.

YOU REPORTED ON A

POTENTIAL CONFLICT OF

INTEREST, AND CAN YOU

EXPLAIN THE CONFLICT AND

HOW IT MAY BE RESOLVED?

BECAUSE CHARLIE IS

ESSENTIALLY NOT OLD ENOUGH

TO SPEAK FOR HIMSELF, HE

HAS BEEN APPOINTED A

GUARDIAN BY THE COURT.

THAT GUARDIAN, ESSENTIALLY

A SOCIAL WORKER, IS

REPRESENTED BY AN

ATTORNEY, WHO HAS A LONG

TRACK RECORD OF WORKING

WITH GROUPS IN THE DIGNITY

AND DYING MOVEMENT,

BASICALLY

PRO-EUTHANASIA-TYPE

GROUPS.

SHE SITS ON THE BOARD OF

SUCH ORGANIZATION, AND

THAT REPRESENTS AN

IDEOLOGICAL CONFLICT OF

INTEREST, OR AT THE VERY

LEAST, CALLING IT

INAPPROPRIATE.

SHE THINKS THE ONLY WAY TO

RESOLVE THAT CONFLICT IS

FOR THE ATTORNEY TO

WITHDRAW FROM THE CASE.

EFREM?

SOUNDS LOGICAL, THANKS,

JOHN.

MUCH APPRECIATE IT.

COMING UP, VENEZUELA IS A

HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN THE

MAKING, BUT SEE HOW

CHRISTIANS ARE USING THE

POWER OF PRAYER TO CHANGE

THEIR COUNTRY.

MEMBERS OF THE R.S.S.

GROUP HAVE STRUCK AGAIN IN

INDIA, THIS TIME KILLING A

PASTOR.

THE PASTOR WAS SUMMONED

OUTSIDE OF HIS TEMPLE OF

GOD CHURCH AND GUNNED DOWN

BY TWO YOUNG MEN PASSING

BY ON A MOTORCYCLE.

R.S.S. MEMBERS HAD

QUARRELLED WITH PASTOR ON

SEVERAL OCCASIONS,

ACCUSING HIM OF CONVERTING

SOME TO CHRISTIANITY.

> MEMBERS OF CHINA'S

COMMUNIST PARTY ARE BEING

FORCED TO GIVE UP THEIR

FAITH.

CHINA'S ADMINISTRATION FOR

RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS GAVE THE

ORDER.

THE PARTY SAYS MEMBERS

SHOULD NOT HOLD ANY

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, ONLY

FIRM MARXIST ATHEISTS.

UNDER PRESIDENT SKI XI

JINPING, THERE HAS BEEN A

RENEWED ANTI-FOREIGN

SEPTEMBER IN THE

GOVERNMENT, BELIEVING THAT

FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS,

NAMELY THE UNITED STATES,

ARE USING GROUPS, LIKE

RELIGIOUS GROUPS IN CHINA,

TO TRY TO UNDER MINE THE

GOVERNMENT.

WE NEED TO PRAYER THAT THE

LORD WOULD MOVE THE HEARTS

OF CHINA'S LEADERS, TO

RECOGNIZE THE CHRISTIANS

IN THEIR MIDST ARE NOT A

THREAT.

HE ENCOURAGES BELIEVES

TO PRAY THAT THE LORD WILL

GIVE CHINA'S CHRISTIANS

WISDOM,.

VENEZUELA'S PRESIDENT,

NICOLAS MADURO, INSISTS HE

WILL GO AHEAD WITH PLANS

TO REWRITE THE COUNTRY'S

CONSTITUTION.

EVEN THOUGH 98% OF THE

VOTERS DON'VOTERS REJECT THE IDEA.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

Reporter: OPPOSITION

PARTIES SAY A

CONSTITUTIONAL ASSEMBLY IS

JUST AN ATTEMPT BY THE

SOCIALIST PRESIDENT TO

IMPOSE A DICTATORSHIP IN

VENEZUELA.

MANY ARE AT A BREAKING

POINT AFTER SUFFERING FROM

MONTHS FROM FOOD SHORTAGES

AND HEAVY-HANDED

GOVERNMENT CONTROL.

THE CRISIS HAS MOTIVATED

VENEZUELA'S CHURCH TO

ACTION.

LEADING UP TO THE VOTE,

SOME ECHOED WITH THE

PRAYERS OF CHRISTIANS.

I THINK THE CHURCH IS

AWAKENING, AND EACH AND

EVERY ONE OF THE

CHRISTIANS MUST BECOME

MAIN CHARACTERS OF THIS

PROCESS OF-CHANGER.

OF CHANGE.

TODAY WE SEE JOY IN THE

STREETS.

WE SEE THE ACTIVE PRESENCE

OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN

VENEZUELA.

Reporter: MANY

VENEZUELAN CHRISTIANS

BELIEVE THEIR COUNTRY WILL

PROSPER ONLY AS PEOPLE

LOOK TO GOD, NOT

POLITICIANS, FOR

SOLUTIONS.

WE HAVE FAITH IN THE

LORD.

WE HAVE DECIDED TO

PARTICIPATE IN THIS

OPPORTUNITY BECAUSE IT IS

NOT GIVING SUPPORT TO ANY

PARTICULAR POLITICAL

PARTY.

Reporter: PASTOR

ROBERTO SAYS THE

GOVERNMENT SHOULD SUBMIT

TO THE AUTHORITY OF GOD

AND THE CONSTITUTION.

MEANWHILE, DONALD TRUMP

AND PRESIDENT FOX AND

MEMBERS OF THE EUROPEAN

UNION, CALLED ON MADURO TO

CANCEL IT.

HE HAS THREATENED TO TAKE

STRONG AND SWIFT ECONOMIC

ACTIONS AGAINST MA MADURO IF

HE TRIES TO REWRITE THE

CONSTITUTION.

MADURO FIRED BACK, SAYING

HE WON'T BE GOVERNED BY

THE NORTHERN EMPIRE.

WE POSSIBLE ECONOMIC

SANCTIONS AND MORE

HARDSHIP AHEAD, CHRISTIANS

ARE STEPPING INTO THE

CONFLICT TO PRAY AND SHINE

A LIGHT OF HOPE IN THE

MIDST OF ECONOMIC

UPHEAVAL.

VENEZUELA, THIS IS YOUR

HOUR, THIS IS YOUR TIME.

WHILE MANY ARE SEEING

CHAOS, WHILE MANY ARE

SEEING THAT VENEZUELA HAS

NO SOLUTIONS, THAT

RESTORATION WILL TAKE A

LONG TIME, GOD SAYS, I

WILL RAISE YOU UP.

I WILL BLESS YOU.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

WHEN WE COME BACK, NEW

EVIDENCE SUPPORTS THE

SHROWD OF TOURISTS.

SEE HOW A TINY PARTICLE IS

CHANGING A TINY CLOTHE.

A BREAKTHROUGH

DISCOVERY COULD BE

EVIDENCE IT IS THE BURIAL

CLOTH OF JESUS CHRIST.

RESEARCHERS SAID THEY

FOUND SIGNS OF BLOOD WITH

TINY PARTICLES THAT

INDICATE A SCENARIO OF

GREAT SUFFERING, AND

THAT'S BECAUSE OF THE

TYPES OF SUBSTANCES FOUND

IN THE BLOOD ON THE CLOTH.

ONE EXPERT SAYS THE NEW

FINDINGS DEBUNKED THE OLD

CLAIM THAT SOMEONE SIMPLY

PAINTED AN IMAGE ON THE

SHROUD.

> ISRAEL IS BECOMING

KNOWN NOT JUST AS THE LAND

OF THE BIBLE, BUT AS A

PLACE OF INNOVATION AND

TECHNOLOGY.

IT HAS A BIBLICAL ZOO, AND

NOW JERUSALEM IS OPENING

THE FIRST AQUARIUM OF ITS

KIND IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

JULIE STAL REPORTS, IT

PROMISES TO TELL ISRAEL'S

WATER STORY.

Reporter: THIS TUNNEL

IS BOUND TO BE ONE OF THE

MAIN ATTRACTIONS AT THE

NEW GOTTISMAN FAMILY

ISRAEL AQUARIUM,

JERUSALEM.

THE TUNNEL IS PART OF A

400,000 GALLON TANK AT THE

AQUARIUM, WHICH IS PART OF

JERUSALEM'S BIBLICAL ZOO.

IT WILL HOLD SHARKS AND

OTHER FISH FROM THE

MEDITERRANEAN SEA.

WE EMPHASIZE ONLY ONE

ISSUE, THE LOCAL HABITAT.

WE WILL DEAL ONLY WITH THE

RED SEA, A LITTLE BIT OF

THE SEA OF GALILEE AND THE

DEAD SEA.

Reporter: SHY JEROME

SAYS ONE OF THE MAIN

THRUSTS IS TO RAISE

AWARENESS ABOUT WILDFIRE

HAWILDLIFEHABITATRERS VACATION

HABITAT PRESERVATION IN

THE SEA.

OIL, TRANSPORTATION,

SECURITY -- WE NEED TO

START AS ISRAELIS AND DO

IT FOR ALL OF THE WORLD.

THE SEA, THE OCEAN, IS AN

IN HABITANT.

Reporter: THE

AQUARIUM AIMS TO HAVE

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE.

LIKE THIS INTERACTIVE

POP-UP.

IT PUTS YOU IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE RED SEA, CORAL

FISH, SURROUNDED BY STAR

FISH.

IN OTHER PLACES, VISITORS

HAVE TO SEARCH FOR THE

TREASURES.

IT IS, AGAIN, PART OF

THE NEW TREND OF VISITING

ZOOS AND AQUARIUMS.

NOT EVERYTHING DO YOU SEE

IMMEDIATELY.

IT IS DISCOVERING THINGS.

Reporter: IN A

PRE-OPENING TOUR, CBN NEWS

WAS GIVEN A

BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT

THE CORE OF THE AQUARIUM,

THE BREEDING, RESEARCH,

AND QUARANTINE CENTER.

WE ARE ABOVE THIS BIG

TANK.

THIS IS THE EXIT FOR THE

DIVERS, TO COME AND TAKE

THE DAILY WALK.

Reporter: THE PATH

ENDS AT WHAT IS CALLED THE

COMMITMENT ROOM.

THERE VISITORS ARE URGED

TO PLEDGE TO PROTECT SEA

LIFE BY PROMISING NOT TO

DRIVE FOUR BY FOURs

ALONG THE SHORE, AND NOT

TO TAKE SEA SHELLS OR

BRING PLASTIC BAGS TO THE

BEACH.

WE'RE FINDING A SHARK

OR A WHALE OR SEA TURTLES,

THAT WHEN WE OPEN THE

STOMACH, WE SEE THE FOOD

OF PLASTIC BAGS.

IT IS NOT TASTY, BUT THOSE

CREATURES THINK THEY'RE

JELLYFISH.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

THERE ARE GREAT AQUARIUMS

AROUND THE WORLD, JEROME

SAYS THIS ONE HAS

SOMETHING SPECIAL.

THIS IS PART OF THE

EXPERIENCE.

THIS VIEW IS UNIQUE ONLY

TO JERUSALEM.

Reporter: JULIE
