I'M WENDY GRIFFITH.

GEORGE THOMAS IS ON

ASSIGNMENT.

A RELIGIOUS AWAKENING IS

UNDER WAY AT THE WHITE

HOUSE.

SOME OF THE MOST POWERFUL

PEOPLE IN AMERICA ARE

GATHERING WEEKLY TO LEARN

MORE ABOUT GOD'S WORD.

WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THIS

EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT THE

TRUMP CABINET BIBLE STUDY

THAT IS MAKING HISTORY.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN

CALLED THE MOST

EVANGELICAL CABINET IN

HISTORY.

MEN AND WOMEN WHO DON'T

MINCE WORDS WHEN IT COMES

TO WHERE THEY STAND ON GOD

AND THE BIBLE.

THESE ARE GODLY

INDIVIDUALS THAT GOD HAS

RISEN TO A POSITION OF

PROMISE IN OUR CULTURE.

Reporter: ALL HAND

PICKED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP

AND VICE PRESIDENT MIKE

PENCE.

I DON'T THINK DONALD

TRUMP HAS FIGURED OUT THAT

HE HAS CHAINED HIMSELF TO

THE APOSTLE PAUL.

Reporter: RALPH IS A

FORMER NBA-PLAYING GIANT

OF A MAN WITH AN EVEN

BIGGER CALLING: HE FOUNDED

CAPITAL MINISTRIES WITH

THE IDEA IF YOU CHANGE THE

HEART OF LAWMAKERS, THEN

THEIR CHRISTIAN WORLD VIEW

WILL GUIDE THEM TO MAKE

GOOD POLICIES.

HE STARTED BIBLE STUDIES

IN 40 STATE CAPITALS.

TEACHES WEEKLY STUDIES IN

THE HOUSAN HOUSE AND SENATE, AND

NOW LEADS ABOUT A DOZEN

MEMBERS OF TRUMP'S CABINET

IN BIBLE STUDY.

EDUCATION SECRETARY BETSY

DeVOS AND MIKE POMPEI

YOU ARE JUST A COUPLE OF

THE REGULARS.

THEY ARE SO TEACHABLE.

THEY'RE SO NOBLE.

THEY'RE SO LEARNED.

Reporter: HAS THIS

BEEN DONE BEFORE IN A

CABINET, FORMALLY?

I DON'T THINK THERE HAS

BEEN A CABINET BIBLE STUDY

IN THE LAST 100 YEARS.

JEFF SESSIONS, HE'LL GO

OUT THE SAME DAY I'LL

TEACH HIM SOMETHING, AND

I'LL SEE HIM DID IT ON

CAMERA.

I THINK, THESE GUYS ARE

FAITHFUL, AVAILABLE, AND

ATTACHABLE.

TEACHABLE.

THEY'RE AT BIBLE STUDY

EVERY WEEK.

Reporter: AND EACH

WEEK PRESIDENT TRUMP

RECEIVES A COPY OF

DROLINGER'S TEACHINGS.

HE SEES SIMILARITIES FROM

JOSEPH, MORDECAI, AND

DANIEL, ALL MEN WHO ROSE

TO THE NUMBER TWO POSITION

IN GOVERNMENT.

MIKE PENCE HAS RESPECT

FOR THE OFFICE.

HE DRESSES RIGHT.

IT SAYS JOSEPH CLEANED

HIMSELF UP BEFORE HE WENT

TO STAND BEFORE THE

PHARAOH.

MIKE PENCE HAS

UNCOMPROMISING BIBLICAL

TENACITY, AND YET A LOVING

TONE ABOUT HIM, THAT IS

NOT JUST A NOISY GONG OR A

CLANGING CRICLANGING CYMBOL.

I PRAISE GOD FOR MIKE

PENCE, WHO I THINK WITH

DONALD TRUMP, CHOSE GREAT

PEOPLE TO LEAD OUR NATION.

Wendy: DR. RICHARD

LAND IS PRESIDENT OF THE

SOUTHERN EVANGELICAL

SEMINARY, AND HE IS ALSO A

MEMBER OF PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S EVANGELICAL FAITH

ADVISORY BOARD, AND HE

JOINS US NOW BY SKYPE FOR

MORE.

DR. LAND, CLEARLY THIS IS

ONE OF THE MOST

EVANGELICAL CABINETS IN

OUR HISTORY.

WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT FOR

AMERICA?

WELL, AS AN

EVANGELICAL, I BELIEVE IT

IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE,

FIRST OF ALL, YOU'VE GOT

TENS OF MILLIONS OF

EVANGELICALS IN THIS

COUNTRY WHO HAVE, AT LEAST

IN MY LIFETIME,

UNDERREPRESENTED AT OUR

NATION'S CAPITAL AT THE

HIGHEST LEVELS.

I THINK WE'RE SEEING A

REPRESENTATION OF THE

LEVEL THAT IS FAR MORE IN

KEEPING WITH OUR

PERCENTAGE OF THE

POPULATION.

AS A CHRISTIAN, I BELIEVE

THAT WHEN WE HAVE PEOPLE

LIKE MIKE PENCE, WHO I'VE

WORKED WITH FOR OVER 14

YEARS, WHEN HE WAS IN THE

CONGRESS, I WORKED WITH

HIM ON A VERY CLOSE BASIS,

AND HE IS THE 24-CARAT

GOLD MODEL OF AN

EVANGELICAL, BORN-AGAIN

CHRISTIAN.

AND THE INFLUENCE HE HAS

HAD IN HELPING TO PUT

THESE PEOPLE IN PLACE, AND

BRINGING ABOUT THIS BIBLE

STUDY, IT CANNOT HELP BUT

BE A GOOD INFLUENCE ON THE

GOVERNMENT.

A GOOD INFLUENCE ON THE

PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THE

EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF OUR

NATION'S GOVERNMENT.

Wendy: WHEN YOU HEAR

VICE-PRESIDENT PENCE

SPEAK, YOU KNOW YOU'RE

GETTING THE REAL DEAL

THERE.

WE'VE HEARD ABOUT THE

CABINET.

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THE

PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT

TRUMP, TAKES TIME DAILY TO

PRAY, AND HOW DO YOU THINK

GOD CAN STRENGTHEN HIS

FAITH?

I'M TOLD BY PEOPLE IN

THE WHITE HOUSE THAT HE

DOES PRAY ON A REGULAR

BASIS.

AND WHEN HE IS GOING TO

MAKE IMPORTANT DECISIONS,

THAT HE VERY OFTEN CALLS

VICE-PRESIDENT PENCE TO

COME IN AND PRAY WITH HIM

AS HE SEEKS GUIDANCE AND

DIRECTION.

SO I THINK FIRSTHAND THAT

IS THE CASE, BUT I HAVE IT

ON RELIABLE AUTHORITY FROM

PEOPLE WHO ARE IN A

POSITION TO KNOW.

Wendy: WELL, THAT IS

EXTREMELY ENCOURAGING.

AND WE APPRECIATE YOU

TELLING US THAT.

> SPEAKING OF FIRSTHAND,

DR. LAND, YOU HAVE BEEN IN

THE OVAL OFFICE WITH

PRESIDENT TRUMP, AND YOU

HAVE PRAYED WITH HIM.

WHAT IS THAT EXPERIENCE

LIKE, TO PRAY WITH THE

PRESIDENT?

WELL, YOU KNOW, I'VE

DONE IT BEFORE IN THE OVAL

OFFICE AND OUTSIDE THE

OVAL OFFICE, BUT I'VE

NEVER ACTUALLY BEEN ABLE

TO TOUCH THE PRESIDENT AND

LAY HANDS ON HIM WHILE I

PRAYED.

AND I ALSO NEVER TOUCHED

THE DESK IN THE OVAL

OFFICE BEFORE.

WHEN I'VE BEEN IN THE OVAL

OFFICE OTHER TIMES, YOU

GET GREETED AT THE DOOR

AND YOU SIT ON THE

FURNITURE OUT IN FRONT OF

THE DESK.

SO, YOU KNOW, TO ACTUALLY

PUT MY HAND ON THE

PRESIDENT AND PUT MY HAND

ON THE DESK THAT JOHN F.

KENNEDY, JR. PLAYED IN

WHEN HIS DADDY WAS

PRESIDENT, WAS A SPECIAL

MOMENT.

WE ASKED THE PRESIDENT IF

WE COULD PRAY FOR HIM, AND

HE SAID, OF COURSE,

PLEASE.

SO WE ASKED THE SECRET

SERVICE IF IT WAS ALL

RIGHT FOR US TO PUT OUR

HANDS ON THE PRESIDENT,

AND THEY NODDED, AND SO WE

DID.

AND I PRAYED FOR HIM.

I PRAYED EVERY DAY THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS

PRESIDENT, AS I'M

COMMANDED TO DO.

I PRAYED GOD WOULD GIVE

HIM WISDOM, THAT GOD WOULD

GIVE HIM GUIDANCE, THAT

GOD WOULD GIVE HIM

DIRECTION, AND GOD WOULD

KEEP HIM SAFE FROM HARM.

Wendy: THE BIBLE SAYS

TO PRAY, NO MATTER WHAT

THE POLITICAL PARTY, FOR

OUR LEADERS, SO IT WILL GO

WELL WITH US.

SO IT IS REALLY A SELFISH

PRAYER, ISN'T IT?

WELL, I DON'T KNOW IF

IT IS EVER SELFISH TO BE

OBEDIENT TO THE COMMAND OF

GOD, BUT IT IS CERTAINLY

WISE.

Wendy: AMEN.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO

PRAY -- WELL, WE KIND OF

JUST ANSWERED THAT.

LET'S UNPACK IT A LITTLE

BIT MORE.

FOR THOSE WHO MAY NEVER

HAVE PRAYED FOR OUR

LEADERS, WHY IS IT

IMPORTANT TO DO SO?

THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT

THE HEART OF THE KEY IS IN

THE HAND OF THE LORD.

AND HE CAN TURN IT TO

WHOEVER HE WILLS.

WE NEED TO PRAY, FIRST OF

ALL BECAUSE WE'RE

COMMANDED TO DO SO.

AND SECONDLY, BECAUSE WE

BELIEVE THAT PRAYER

CHANGES THINGS.

AND TOLD THAT THE HEART OF

THE KING IS IN THE HAND OF

THE LORD.

SO I PRAY THAT GOD WILL

GIVE THE PRESIDENT WISDOM.

THAT GOD WILL GIVE THE

PRESIDENT GUIDANCE AND

DIRECTION.

AND GOD IS CAPABLE OF

DOING WONDERS AND

MIRACULOUS THINGS.

Wendy: AMEN.

IT IS CERTAINLY AN HONOR

TO TALK WITH YOU, AND AS

SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN WITH

THE PRESIDENT AND PRAYED

HIM IN THE OVAL OFFICE,

VERY INTERESTING.

> LET'S GO OUT TO OUR

NEWSROOM AND LAUREN

CREEKMORE.

YOU'VE BEEN MONITORING

RESPONSE TO THIS STORY ON

OUR Facebook.

WHAT IS THE REACTION FROM

OUR Facebook VIEWERS?

WE HAVE A LOT OF GREAT

REACTION.

THIS ONE SAYS, SO YOU WILL

FIND FAVOR IN THE HEART OF

GOD AND MAN.

IN ALL YOUR WAYS,

ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AND HE

WILL MAKE YOUR PATHS

STRAIGHT.

GREG MAYBERRY SAID, YOU

NEVER HEAR THIS FROM ANY

OF THE MEDIA, INCLUDING

FOX.

SO SAD.

ANOTHER COMMENT FROM

AARON, "I GOD IS MAKING A

CROOKED WAY STRAIGHT.

I THINK EVERYBODY CAN

AGREE THAT TRUMP IS DOING

THE RIGHT THING WHEN IT

COMES TO PRAYING IN THE

WHITE HOUSE."

Wendy: I DON'T THINK

THE SECULAR MEDIA KNOWS

HOW TO HANDLE STORIES

ABOUT PRAYERS.

IN ALL FAIRNESS, A LOT OF

THEM AREN'T BELIEVERS.

IT IS A WEIRD TOPIC FOR

THEM.

BUT FOR US IT IS A NATURAL

TOPIC AND SOMETHING WE DO

ALL OF THE TIME.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS

RIGHT NOW FOR DR. LAND?

RIGHT NOW, I THINK

EVERYBODY IS JUST SO

THRILLED WITH WHAT THEY'RE

HEARING, I DON'T THINK

THEY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.

THEY'RE JUST AGREEING WITH

EVERYTHING HE IS SAYING,

THAT PRAYER IS NEEDED IN

THE WHITE HOUSE.

I THINK THERE IS A LOT OF

CONFUSION AS TO WHAT THE

CONFLICT WAS.

AARON SAID, "THE

WITCHCRAFT THAT HAS COME

AGAINST OUR PRESIDENT IS

NULLIFIED AND DEAD."

ANOTHER COMMENT SAYS,

"PRAISE OUR LORD," AND

JUST A LOT OF GOOD STUFF.

EVERYBODY SEEMS TO AGREE

WITH DR. LAND ON THIS ONE.

Wendy: DR. LAND, I

WANT TO ASK YOU ONE MORE

THING.

AT THE INAUGURATION, I

DON'T KNOW IF YOU NOTICED

THIS, BUT ALL OF THE

PEOPLE THAT GOT UP TO PRAY

AT PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

INAUGURATION PRAYED IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

AND I DON'T REMEMBER THAT

HAPPENING IN ANY OF THE

PAST ADMINISTRATIONS ON

INAUGURATION DAY, DO YOU?

WELL, NOT ALL OF THEM.

RICK WARREN CERTAINLY DID

WHEN HE PRAYED AT

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

INAUGURATION, AND DID IN

JESUS' NAME.

MY FAVORITE PRAYER WAS THE

ONE THAT FRANKLIN GRAHAM

PRAYED.

HIS FATHER MUST HAVE BEEN

VERY PROUD BECAUSE HE

ACTUALLY GOT THE GOSPEL

IN.

HE PRAYED AND QUOTED FROM

TIMOTHY THAT GOD HAS AN

ERNEST DESIRE THAT ALL MEN

BE SAVED AND COME TO A

COMPLETE KNOWLEDGE OF THE

TRUTH.

AND I'M GOING AMEN.

Wendy: WELL, THAT'S

ONE THING ABOUT THE

GRAHAMS, THEY WILL GET THE

GOSPEL MESSAGE IN, NO

MATTER WHO IS INTERVIEWING

THEM AND WHERE THEY ARE.

WE CERTAINLY LOVE THAT

ABOUT THEM.

DR. RICHARD LAND FROM THE

SOUTHERN EVANGELICAL

SEMINARY, THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR BEING WITH US

TODAY.

WE APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Wendy: AMEN.

UP NEXT, FOR SOME

CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE

EAST, CHOOSING JESUS MEANS

CHOOSING DEATH.

SEE HOW THIS WOMAN IS

FIGHTING TO KEEP FROM

BEING DEPORTED BEFORE TO

IRAN.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK

TO "CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS."

IRAQI CHRISTIANS DISPLACED

BY THE FIGHTING AND

PERSECUTION BY ISIS ARE

NOT GETTING THEIR FAIR

SHARE OF INTERNATIONAL

RELIEF FUNDS.

NINA SHAYE OF THE HUDSON

INSTITUTE CENTER FOR

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM TOLD OUR

GARY LANE THAT MANY

REFUGEES SAY THEY HAVEN'T

RECEIVED ANY HELP FROM THE

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY.

Reporter: IN AN ERA

WHERE THERE IS LIMITED

AID, LIMITED

RECONSTRUCTION AID WITH

MASSIVE DESTRUCTION OVER

THERE.

THE CHRISTIANS OF IRBIL

HAVE TESTIFIED IN CONGRESS

BEFORE CONGRESSMAN BILL

SMITH, SAYING THAT THEY

HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY U.S.

AID THAT REALLY

COMPREHENSIVELY FEEDS

THESE PEOPLE OVER 100,000

OF THEM OF CHRISTIANS WHO

HAVE LOST EVERYTHING TO

ISIS, WHO ARE HOMELESS,

FOR THREE YEARS.

THEY HAVE NOT RECEIVED

U.S. AID.

Reporter: THAT WOULD

BE SHOCKING TO MOST

AMERICANS TO KNOW THAT

BECAUSE THEY THINK WE'RE

HELPING THEM.

I KNOW THERE WAS A BILLION

DOLLARS ALLOCATED BY THE

U.S. CONGRESS TO HELP

REFUGEES, AND YET ONLY

ABOUT 10 MILLION IS GOING

TO PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS.

AND THEY'LL BE LUCKY TO

GET THAT, GARY, BECAUSE IN

THE PAST, THIS HAS BEEN

DIVERTED TO OTHER PEOPLE,

OTHER POCKETS.

TO LEARN HOW YOU CAN

HELP IRAQ'S DISPLACED

CHRISTIANS, SEE THE FULL

INTERVIEW AT GARY'S BLOG,

THE GLOBAL

LANE@cbnnews.com.

> THEY RELEASED AN

IRANIAN WOMAN FROM PRISON.

SHE WAS CONVICTED IN 2013.

SHE WAS ARRESTED AFTER

WORKING WITH PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI AT AN ORPHANAGE.

RELIGIOUS RIGHTS GROUPS

REPORT SHE WAS DENIED

CRITICAL MEDICAL TREATMENT

FOR A HEART CONDITION

WHILE SHE WAS IN PRISON.

AN OVERWHELMING

RESPONSE TO A REPORT WE

BROUGHT YOU LAST WEEK,

SWEDEN WANTS TO DEPORT AN

IRANIAN CHRISTIAN, BUT HER

NEWFOUND FAITH IN JESUS

COULD MEAN DEATH IF SHE IS

FORCED TO RETURN TO IRAN.

DALE HURD BRINGS US THIS

UPDATE.

Reporter: SINCE CBN

NEWS FIRST BROUGHT HER

STORY, AIDEEN STRANDSSON'S

FUTURE REMAINS IN LIMBO.

SHE WAITS EITHER FOR

POLITICAL ASYLUM OR TO BE

DEPORTED.

THE IRANIAN ACTRESS LEFT

ISLAM TO BECOME A

CHRISTIAN AFTER HAVING A

DREAM ABOUT JESUS.

SHE CAME TO SWEDEN IN 2014

ON A WORK VISA.

SHE HAS BEEN VERY PUBLIC

ABOUT HER NEW FAITH, WHICH

MEANS SHE FACES PRISON,

RAPE, AND DEATH, IF

RETURNED TO THE ISLAMIC

REPUBLIC OF IRAN.

IT IS SO DANGEROUS FOR

ME.

AND I DON'T KNOW WHY

IMMIGRATION DON'T BELIEVE

THAT, THAT I'M REALLY IN

DANGER.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

SWEDEN'S MIGRATION BOARD

SAYS ON ITS OWN WEB PAGE

THAT IT WILL NEVER DEPORT

ASYLUM-SEEKERS TOMATIONS

WHERTO NATIONSWHERE THEY FACE DANGER,

THE MIGRATION BOARD

REJECTED HER CASE FOR

ASYLUM AND TURNED HER CASE

OVER TO BORDER POLICE FOR

EVENTUAL DEPORTATION.

THIS IS SWEDISH ATTORNEY

GABRIEL DONNER.

TORTURE AND RAPE IS

COMMON.

AND IT IS ALSO IN BREACH

OF THE INTERNATIONAL LAW

TO SUBJECT ANY PERSON TO

SUCH TREATMENT.

Reporter: SO MANY CBN

VIEWERS CONTACTED THE

MIGRATION BOARD AFTER OUR

STORY AIRED, THAT A

MIGRATION BOARD OFFICIAL

CONTACTED CBN NEWS AND

TOLD US THE FACT THAT YOUR

READERS WRITE TO US WILL

NOT CHANGE THE MIGRATION

AGENCY'S DECISION, NOR CAN

WE CHANGE THE COURT'S

DECISION.

HER CASE HAS BEEN APPEALED

AND PROCESSED BY THE

MIGRATION AGENCY, AND

THERE AFTER BY THE SWEDISH

COURTS, WHICH ALSO DECIDED

SHE COULD NOT BE GRANTED

ASYLUM.

CBN NEWS HAS RECEIVED MANY

OFFERS OF HELP FROM OTHER

NATIONS, BUT SHE CANNOT

LEAVE SWEDEN ON HER OWN.

HER IRANIAN PASSPORT HAS

BEEN TAKEN AWAY.

SHE SAYS HER FIRST CHOICE

IS TO REMAIN IN SWEDEN, IF

POSSIBLE.

AIDEEN AND OTHER

ASYLUM-SEEKERS FACE

DEPORTATION AT THE SAME

TIME THE SWEDISH

GOVERNMENT HAS GIVEN 150

IDENTITIES TO FORMER ISIS

FIGHTERS WHO HAVE RETURNED

TO SWEDEN SO THEY CAN FIND

JOBS.

THERE WILL BE NO SUCH HELP

FOR AIDEEN.

SHADOW IT IS YOUR

PERSONAL LIFE.

IT IS NOT OUR PROBLEM IF

YOU DECIDED TO BE A

CHRISTIAN.

IT'S YOUR PROBLEM.

Reporter: DONNER SAYS

CHRISTIANS DEPORTED TO

MUSLIM NATIONS FACE

CERTAIN DANGERS.

SOME ARE KILLED

STRAIGHT OFF.

SOME SUCCEED IN HIDING.

SOME ESCAPE TO SOME OTHER

PLACE, BUT YOU'RE PUTTING

THEM AT RISK.

Reporter: THE HEAD OF

SWEDEN'S MIGRATION BOARD

SAYS THEY COULD ORDER HER

CASE REOPENED, BUT AIDEEN

IS NOW RELYING ON A POWER

MUCH GREATER THAN THE

SWEDISH GOVERNMENT: THE

POWER OF JESUS CHRIST.

I THINK ABOUT THAT

DREAM I HAD IN IRAN, ABOUT

JESUS, AND I STILL THINK

HE IS WATCHING ME.

HE WILL HELP ME.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THANKS, DALE.

AND DALE TELLS US THAT HE

HEARD FROM AIDEEN AFTER

THIS UPDATE.

HER ATTORNEY IS GOING TO

TRY FOR A NEW HEARING NEXT

WEEK.

PLEASE KEEP AIDEEN IN

PRAYER.

> WELL, VIDEO OF A

9-YEAR-OLD INDIANA GIRL

MINISTERING OUTSIDE AN

ABORTION CLINIC IS MAKING

THE ROUNDS ON THE

INTERNET.

BRIANNA, WHO'S FULL NAME

WE'RE NOT RELEASING FOR

PRIVACY REASONS, CAN BE

SEEN WEARING A HEADSET TO

AMPLIFY HER VOICE IN A

VIDEO THAT HAS BEEN VIEWED

BY MILLIONS.

SHE IS SHARING THE GOSPEL

AND PLEADING WITH WOMEN

WAITING INSIDE THE CLINIC,

TO CHOOSE LIFE.

WE SPOKE WITH THE YOUNG

EVANGELIST ABOUT WHY SHE

THINKS IT IS IMPORTANT TO

SPEAK OUT ABOUT ABORTION.

IT IS LITTLE CHILDREN

THAT ARE BEING MURDERED

AND KILLED.

AND THEY'RE NOT -- THEY

ARE ALIVE.

THEY HAVE A HEARTBEAT.

SO THEY'RE HUMANS LIKE US.

THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS

THEY CAN'T SAY NO.

Wendy: SO TRUE.

SO FAR BRIANNA'S VIDEO HAS

REACHED -- GET THIS --

MORE THAN A MILLION

PEOPLE.

> COMING UP, SHE IS 85

AND STILL PREACHING THE

GOSPEL.

WATCH MARILYN HICKY TELL

MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS ABOUT

THE LOVE OF JESUS.

Wendy: IN AN ERA

WHERE TERRORISTS TARGET

ISLAM'S, ONE BRAVE

CHRISTIAN EVANGELIST IS

BUILDING BRIDGES IN PLACES

SO DANGEROUS MOST

TRAVELLERS HAVE WRITTEN

HIM OFF.

CBN NEWS SAT DOWN WITH

MARILYN HICKY TO HEAR HER

AMAZING STORY.

I SAID, I LOVE MUSLIMS

AND MUSLIMS LOVE ME.

Reporter: NOT EVEN

DR. MARILYN HICKY COULD

HAVE SEEN THIS COMING.

IT IS BEYOND MY

IMAGINATION THAT WE WOULD

HAVE A MILLION IN ONE

MEETING.

Reporter: AND THAT

MEETING WITH ONE MILLION

MUSLIMS FILLED THE STREETS

OF KARACHI, PAKISTAN.

THEY GATHERED TO HEAR THIS

85-YEAR-OLD GRANDMOTHER

SHARE THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT

JESUS.

I WANT TO TELL YOU

SOMETHING: NO ONE MAY KNOW

YOUR NAME, BUT JESUS KNOWS

YOUR NAME.

Reporter: WHAT HAS

BEEN THE REACTION OF YOU

SAYING THAT TO A MILLION

PEOPLE IN KARACHI.

HE KNOWS WHERE YOU ARE,

WHO YOU ARE, AND HAS A

PLAN AND DES DESTINY FOR YOUR

LIFE.

Reporter: SHE BEGAN

PREACHING IN A SMALL

DENVER CHURCH, AND NOW

REACHING OUT TO THE MUSLIM

WORLD.

THE REASON I'M FOCUSING

IS BEFORE ALL OF THIS WAS

SUCH A MESS IN THE WORLD,

GOD SPOKE TO ME TO PRAY

OVER MUSLIM COUNTRIES.

YOU KNOW, I THOUGHT, THIS

IS CRAZY.

I'M AN AMERICAN WOMAN.

SO I MEMORIZED, LIKE, 40

COUNTRIES AND PRAYED OVER

THEM EVERY DAY FOR A LONG

TIME, MAYBE FOUR YEARS OR

MORE, AND THEN GOD BEGAN

TO SEND ME TO THEM.

Reporter: MARILYN

GIVES ALL OF THE GLORY TO

JESUS, AND THROUGH HIM,

SHE SAID SHE HAS SEEN

COUNTLESS MIRACLES.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: THESE

CROWDS THAT ARE TURNING UP

TO SEE YOU PREACH THE

GOSPEL ARE BIGGER THAN THE

ROCK STARS IN AMERICA.

WELL, DON'T ASK ME WHY.

YOU KNOW, THEY CALL ME

MOM.

AND I'M TELLING YOU, THE

MUSLIMS CALL ME A MOTHER

OF PAKISTAN.

SO THAT'S GOD'S FAVOR.

BUT I DON'T COMPROMISE

ANYTHING.

I TELL EXACTLY HOW JESUS

DIED FOR YOUR SINS, AROSE

FROM THE DEAD, AND IF YOU

REPENT AND BELIEVE THAT,

HE WILL COME INTO YOUR

HEART.

SO, YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT A

COMPROMISING MESSAGE, BUT

IT IS A HEALING MESSAGE

FOR SPIRIT, SOUL, AND

BODY.

Wendy: YOU CAN FIND

THIS STORY AND MUCH MORE

ON OUR "CHRISTIAN WORLD

NEWS" PAGE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

Wendy: AND FINALLY, A

CHRISTIAN REFUGEE WHO

ESCAPED ISIS GET A NEW

START THANKS TO "OPERATION

BLESSING."

WALLARD WAS A SUCCESSFUL

TAILER BACK IN IRAQ, BUT

HAD TO FLEE HIS COUNTRY

WHEN THE TERROR GROUP TOOK

OVER.

MANY REFUGEES COME TO

JORDAN WHERE THEY CAN FIND

A SAVE HAVEN, BUT FINDING

WORK IS HARD AND THEY

STRUGGLE JUST TO GET BY.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING"

STEPPED IN TO GIVE WALLARD

TWO BRAND NEW SEWING

MACHINES AND OTHER

SUPPLIES TO START A HOME

MADE BUSINESS.

HE NOW MAKES CUSTOM

CLOTHING AND FURNITURE TO

MAKE A LIVING.

AND THEY GAVE HIS SONS

TOOLS TO START HIS OWN

BARBER SHOP.

> THANKS SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US.

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, FROM ALL

OF US HERE AT "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS," THANKS FOR

TUNING IN.
