ELECTION.

MOSCOW DENIED ATTEMPTS.

PRESIDENT SIGNED A BILL DESPITE

OBJECTIONS TO IT.

THE RUSSIA ISSUE CARRIES OVER TO

SPECIAL COUNCIL ROBERT MUELLER'S

PROBE INTO THE MEDDLING.

SOME CONCERNED HE HAS GONE

BEYOND THE SCOPE AND A FISHING

EXPEDITION THAT WOULD LEAD TO

LOOKING INTO OTHER ACTIVITIES OR

CRIMES.

ROB ROSENSTEIN SAID MUELLER IS

NOT GOING TOO FAR.

WE DON'T ENGAGE IN PHISHING

EXPI -- EXPEDITIONS, BOB MULLER

UNDERSTANDS AND I UNDERSTAND THE

SPECIFIC SCOPE OF THE EXPEDITION

EXPEDITION.

IF MUELLER FINDS OTHER

EVIDENCE OF WRONGDOING HE WILL

HAVE TO ASK FOR PERMISSION TO

EXPAND INVESTIGATION.

ALSO QUESTIONS ABOUT MUELLER'S

IMPARTIALITY BECAUSE OF HILARY

CLINTON DONORS ON HIS TEAM AND

CONCERN ABOUT A GRAND JURY.

ROSENSTEIN SAID NO.

MANY OF OUR INVESTIGATIONS

INVOLVE USE OF GRAND JURY

APPROPRIATE WAY TO GATHER

DOCUMENTS.

JUST A TOOL WE USE IN THE COURSE

OF OUR INVESTIGATION.

LIKE IT OR NOT RUSSIA PROBE

AND MANY QUESTIONS SURROUNDING

IT MAYBE FAR FROM OVER AND MAYBE

DEALING WITH THE INVESTIGATION

FOR SOME TIME.

HEATHER SELLS CBN NEWS.

ISRAEL IS COMPLETELY A

BIPARTISAN ISSUE.

IMPORTANCE WE WANTED TO SHOW,

ONE TO BOND WITH OUR GREATEST

ALLY, ISRAEL.

SHARED VALUES, SHARED SECURITY

INTERESTS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

NO STRONGER BOND BETWEEN ANY

THE MIDDLE EAST.

GOAL IS TO PROVIDE BOTH

DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN GROUPS

WITH FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE OF

U.S.-ISRAEL RELATIONS AND

CRITICAL ISSUES FACING POLICY

MAKERS.

> ISRAEL'S ATTORNEY WILL

LIKELY INDICT BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU'S WIFE FOR FRAUD.

NETANYAHU INTERROGATED BY

IF CONVICTED SHE COULD FACE JAIL

TIME.

NETANYAHU'S ATTORNEY CALLS THE

ALLEGATIONS RIDICULOUS.

> KIM JUNG UN DEMANDING

JUSTICE SAYING HE'D TAKE ACTION

IN RESPONSE TO DONALD TRUMP'S

ACTIONS TO ISOLATE THE COUNTRY.

RESOLUTION IMPOSING ONE BILLION

DOLLARS OF ECONOMIC SANCTIONS

AGAINST NORTH KOREA.

REPORTER: THIS WEEKEND UNITED

NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL VOTED

UNANIMOUSLY TO IMPOSE NEW

SANCTIONS ON NORTH KOREA.

UNIFIED DECISION COULD DRY OUT

THE LAST BIT OF LEADER'S UN'S

RESOURCES, MORE LIKELY TO SEE

STARVATION OF THE NORTH KOREANS

WITH HIS OWN EYES.

THROUGH TWITTER, U.S. PRESIDENT

DONALD TRUMP CHEERILY PRAISED UN

EXPRESSING GRATITUDE SAYING THE

UNITED NATIONS RESOLUTION IS THE

SINGLE LARGEST ECONOMIC

SANCTIONS PACKAGE ON EVER ON

NORTH KOREA.

OVER ONE BILLION DOLLARS ON

NORTH KOREA.

BAN ON EXPORTS WORTH MORE THAN

ONE BILLION DOLLARS, ONE-THIRD

OF NORTH KOREA'S TOTAL EXPORTS

WHICH WERE VALUED AT THREE

BILLION DOLLARS LAST YEAR.

NIKI HAILEY, U.S. AMBASSADOR

SAYS FURTHER ACTION REQUIRED.

MEMBERS OF THE SECURITY

COUNCIL MUST DO MORE TO INCREASE

PRESSURE ON NORTH KOREA.

WE MUST WORK TOGETHER TO FULLY

IMPLEMENT THE SANCTIONS.

MEANWHILE, HALEY COMPLIMENTED

THE COOPERATION OF THE CHINESE

GOVERNMENT.

PREVIOUSLY HALEY AND TRUMP

CRITICIZE CHINA FOR TAKING A

SOFT TONE ON NORTH KOREA.

ON SATURDAY, CHINA'S AMBASSADOR

WELCOMED TOUGH NEW SANCTIONS ON

PANG YANG.

FACT THAT THE COUNCIL

ADOPTSED THIS RESOLUTION, THEY

ARE UNITED REGARDING THE NUCLEAR

ISSUE OF THE PENINSULA.

SECRETARY OF STATE REX

FURTHER UNITING THE WORLD

AGAINST NORTH KOREA'S GROWING

MISSILE AND NUCLEAR DEVELOPMENT

THREAT.

CBN NEWS.

> AUSTRALIA COULD BE VOTING TO

LEGALIZE GAY MARRIAGE.

GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCED BACK UP

PLAN ALLOWING CITIZENS TO VOTE

AFTER THE COUNTRY'S RULING PARTY

REFUSED.

THE MOVE WOULD ALLOW AUSTRALIANS

TO HAVE GAY MARRIAGE.

> NEW STUDY TAKES A LOOK AT

ATHEISTS.

PEOPLE LOOK AT THEM AS IMMORAL

THAN RELIGIOUS PEOPLE.

ACROSS THE WORLD, RELIGIOUS

ELITE IS INTUITIVELY VIEWED AS A

NECESSARY SAFEGUARD AGAINST

TEMPTATION OF GROSSLY IMMORAL

CONDUCT.

NATURE HUMAN BEHAVIOR MEASURED

ATTITUDES OF 3,000 PEOPLE 13

DIFFERENT COUNTRIES, EXTREMELY

RELIGION TO VERY SECULAR.

> STILL AHEAD HERE ON CBN

"NEWSWATCH" TRAVELING OVERSEAS,

THIS TRAINING COULD SAVE YOUR

LIFE.

YOU'LL WANT TO WATCH THIS COMING

UP.

DEADLY TERRORIST ATTACKS MEAN

MORE RISK FOR TRAVELERS.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU NEED TO

THROW AWAY YOUR PASSPORT AND

STAY AT HOME.

CAITLIN BURKE REPORTS YOU CAN

GET HELP.

CAITLIN: THIS ISN'T A MOVIE,

IT IS NOT QUITE REALITY, EITHER.

HERE AT THE CENTER FOR PERSONAL

PROTECTION AND SAFETY IN

VIRGINIA INSTRUCTORS HELP

FREQUENT TRAVELERS LEARN HOW TO

SPOT TROUBLE AND RESPOND FROM A

TERRORISM ATTACK TO A PICK

POCKETING.

THERE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN RISKS

BUT WE ARE SEEING AREAS

TRADITIONALLY SAFE TO TRAVEL TO,

EXTREMISM AND AREAS LIKE PARIS,

FRANCE, LONDON, HISTORICALLY

HAVEN'T BEEN THERE.

CAITLIN: SANDY PREPARES FOR A

TRIP TO EUROPE.

WE ARE ALREADY PLANNING HOW

WILL WE CARRY OURSELVES, HOW

WILL WE RESPOND TO CROWDS?

VERY USEFUL FOR US.

CAITLIN: CEO AND FOUNDER FOR

PERSONAL PROTECTION AND SAFETY.

HE POINTS OUT SITUATIONAL

AWARENESS NEEDED BY MORE THAN

JUST FREQUENT TRAVELERS.

APPLY WHEN YOU TRAVEL AND

WHEN YOU WALK AROUND NORFOLK,

VIRGINIA AS WELL.

WE ARE TEACHING HOW DO YOU

RECOGNIZE WARNING SIGNS.

KNOWING HOW TO REACT CAN PAY

OFF IN A RARE EVENT YOU FIND

YOURSELF IN ONE.

HUGE DIFFERENCE HOW AN

UNTRAINED INDIVIDUAL RESPONDS,

THEY ARE GOING TO BE STARTLED

AFRAID AND FREEZE AND LOCK UP.

TRAINED INDIVIDUAL STARTLED AND

AFRAID AND RECOGNIZE, I HAVE

OPTIONS.

THEY ARE ABLE TO MOVE WITH

PURPOSEFUL ACTIONS.

CAITLIN: TRAINING METHOD

CALLS STRESS INOCULATION.

PARTICIPANTS NEED TO RESPOND

INCREASED BLOOD PRESSURE,

FEELING SHAKY AND TROUBLE

PUTTING TOGETHER THOUGHTS.

WITH THE INTENSITY OF HIS

VOICE, IT BECAME MORE AND MORE

REAL.

IT DID GET MORE STRESSFUL WITH

HIS CONTINUED FIJITING AND THE

GUN.

THIS IS WHEN PEOPLE MAKE A

MISTAKE.

THEY FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE TO

ANSWER IT.

ANSWER NO WOULD BE DENYING YOUR

FAITH.

IT IS NOT DENYING YOUR FAITH OR

SOMETHING OTHER THAN YES OR NO.

YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO RESPOND, I

AM A PERSON OF FAITH OR I AM SO

SCARED.

CAITLIN: IT DOESN'T DENY YOUR

FAITH BUT TAKES AWAY THE

LEGITIMACY OF THE PERSON ASKING

THE QUESTION.

THAT INITIAL CAPTURE IS THE MOST

DANGEROUS.

YOU HAVE INDIVIDUALS TRYING

TO TAKE CONTROL AND THEY ARE NOT

IN CONTROL.

ONE OF YOU IS GOING TO DIE,

WHO IS IT GOING TO BE.

CAITLIN: THREE C'S, CALM,

COLLECT, CAPITALIZE.

CONNECT WITH YOUR A CAPTOR TO

BECOME MORE THAN AN OBJECT.

CAPITALIZE BY ENCOURAGING AND

NEGOTIATING A RELEASE.

WHY SHOULDN'T I KILL YOU?

MOTHER.

FAMILY.

THAT IS A GOOD START.

CAITLIN: IN TODAY'S WORLD

REACHING A BALANCE BETWEEN

PARANOIA AND BOLIVIA.

> NUMBER OF INCIDENTS OF

VIOLENCE IN CHURCHES ARE RAMPING

UP.

HOW SECURITY TEAMS ARE DOING

JUST THAT AND WHAT YOU CAN DO TO

PROTECT YOURSELF NEXT.

LAST PLACE YOU EXPECT TO NEED

ENHANCED SECURITY, A CHURCH.

CHUCK HOLTON REPORTS, IT IS

BECOMING MORE AND MORE IMPORTANT

FOR CHURCHES AROUND THE COUNTRY.

CHUCK: IN THE WAKE OF VIOLENT

ATTACKS LIKE THE ONE IN

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA IN

JUNE 2016, MANY CHURCHES HAVE

SEEN THE NEED TO HELP KEEP THEIR

CONGREGATION SAFE.

SINCE 2011 NUMBER OF VIOLENT

INCIDENTS IN CHURCHES IN THE

UNITED STATES DOUBLED TO FOUR

EACH WEEK.

VARIETY OF CAUSES ACCORDING TO

SECURITY EXPERT MILLER.

WE SEE A LOT OF FOLKS

MENTALLY ILL AT THE TIME AND

NEEDING CARE.

WE ALSO SEE POTENTIALLY VIOLENT

PEOPLE.

WE SEE PEOPLE ANGRY AT LIFE, AT

CHURCH.

CHUCK: IN FACT, MAJORITY OF

INCIDENTS ARE NOT HIGH PROFILE

SHOOTINGS.

MOST HAVE TO DO WITH PERSONAL

CONFLICTS OR EVEN ROBBERIES.

CHURCH SECURITY TEAMS MUST BE

PREPARED TO DEAL WITH ANY

SECURITY TEAM THAT ARISES.

OUR FIRST PRIORITY IS

ASSESSING THEM AND GETTING THEM

THE HELP THEY NEED.

CHUCK: TEAMS SHOULD INCLUDE

MUCH MORE THAN AN ACTIVE SHOOTER

SCENAR

SCENARIO.

WE THINK OF EMERGENCIES AS

VIOLENT.

MUCH MORE LIKELY AT YOUR CHURCH

YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A WEATHER

EMERGENCY OR FIRE EMERGENCY.

WHEN I AM TALKING TO CHURCHES,

FIRST THING I ENCOURAGE THEM TO

DO IS DEVELOP A SIMPLE CLEAR

PLAN.

CHUCK: COMPREHENSIVE PLAN

WILL GET MORE DIFFICULT AS THE

CHURCH GROWS.

MULTICAMPUS CHURCHES MORE AND

MORE COMMON AROUND THE UNITED

STATES.

CHRIST FELLOWSHIP IN FLORIDA

MINISTER TO ALMOST 30,000 AND

EIGHT CAMPUSES.

THAT PRESENTS UNIQUE CHALLENGES.

MAKING FULL USE OF AVAILABLE

TECHNOLOGY HELPS KEEP TABS ON

WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND ALL OF

ITS CAMPUSES AND IMPORTANT

THROUGHOUT THE WEEK.

SIX IN TEN VIOLENT CHURCHES

HAPPENED OUTSIDE OF SCHEDULED

SERVICE TIMES.

COMMUNICATIONS AND CAMERAS ARE

TOOLS, REGULAR SECURITY TRAINING

MAKES ALL THE IMPORTANCE.

IT IS MORE THAN JUST A BUNCH

OF GREAT GUYS RUNNING AROUND,

TRAINING ON A REGULAR BASIS, IN

COMPARISON HAVING A WORSHIP TEAM

THAT NEVER REHEARSES.

IF PEOPLE UNDERSTAND AND PREPARE

PRIOR TO A CRISIS, SCIENCE SHOWS

THEIR SURVIVAL RATE GOES UP 90%.

CHUCK: IMPLEMENTING A PLAN

REQUIRES BUY IN FROM THE

PASTORAL STAFF, TODD MULLINS IS

THE SENIOR STAFF MEMBER.

THE TRUTH IS WE ARE

SHEPHERDS.

AS SHEPHERDS, PART OF OUR JOB IS

TO PROTECT THE SHEEP GOD PUT

UNDER OUR CARE.

WE HAVE TO BE A VIGILANT AND

AWARE THERE IS AN EVIL ONE THAT

WOULD LOVE TO ROB, KILL AND

DESTROY AS JESUS SAID IN JOHN

10:10.

CHUCK: SECURITY TEAM AT

CHRIST FELLOWSHIP HAS BECOME

FULLY INTEGRATED INTO ITS

MINISTRY.

I BELIEVE A SECURITY PRESENCE

BRINGS A SENSE OF PEACE AND CALM

TO FAMILIES ATTENDING CHURCH.

THEY KNOW WE ARE TAKING IT

SERIOUSLY AND PROTECTION OF

THEIR CHILDREN SERIOUSLY AND

PUTS THEM AT EASE SO WE ARE ABLE

TO WORSHIP WITHOUT WORRY.

ONE OF THE GREAT PRIVILEGES A

SECURITY TEAM HAS AS THE ABILITY

TO DIRECT PEOPLE AND FIND HOPE.

AT THE SAME TIME, WE HAVE TO BE

PREPARED, TRAINED AND EQUIPPED

TO HANDLE ANY TYPE OF EMERGENCY

THAT MAY COME.

SETTING UP A STRONG SECURITY

PRESENCE IN YOUR CHURCH IS NOT

SAYING YOU DON'T DEPEND ON GOD.

IT IS NOT SAYING YOU DON'T TRUST

IN GOD.

GOD CAN DO MORE IN SECONDS THAN

MEN CAN IN SECONDS.

WE PRAY, WE BELIEVE GOD TO PUT

UP IS ANGELS AROUND HIS FAMILY,

WE PRAY EVIL MEN WOULD BE KEPT

AWAY.

WE NEED TO WORK AS IF IT ALL

DEPENDS ON US.

WE HAVE TO DO OUR PART TO

PROTECT THE PEOPLE GOD IS

ENTRUSTING TO OUR CARE.

CHUCK: SECURITY IS SOMETHING

NOBODY CAN AFFORD TO IGNORE.

A CHURCH AT ANY LEVEL CAN

BEGIN WITH ONE PERSON THAT HAS A

HEART THAT CAN STEP UP AND LOOK

AT THE SECURITY NEEDS OF A

CHURCH AND BEGIN TO CREATE A

SAFER ENVIRONMENT FOR THAT

CHURCH FAMILY.

CHUCK: I AM CHUCK HOLTON FOR

CBN NEWS.

AT THE CENTER OF THAT

ENHANCED SECURITY IS PRAYER.

STAY WITH US, MUCH MORE OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH" STRAIGHT AHEAD.

CHRISTIANS AND RADICAL ISLAM,

ONE BRAVE CHRISTIAN EVANGELIST

IS BUILDING BRIDGES IN PLACES SO

DANGEROUS MOST TRAVELERS HAVE

WRITTEN THEM OUT.

CBN NEWS SAT DOWN WITH MARILYN

HICKY TO HEAR HER AMAZING STORY.

I SAID I LOVE MUSLIMS AND

MUSLIMS LOVE ME.

NOT EVEN MARILYN HICKY COULD

HAVE SEEN THIS COMING.

BEYOND MY IMAGINATION WE

WOULD HAVE A MILLION IN ONE

MEETING.

THAT MEETING WITH ONE MILLION

MUSLIMS FILLED THE STREETS OF

PAKISTAN.

THAT GATHERED TO HEAR THIS

85-YEAR-OLD GRANDMOTHER SHARE

THE GOOD NEWS.

I WANT TO TELL YOU SOMETHING,

NO ONE MAY KNOW YOUR NAME BUT

JESUS KNOWS YOUR NAME.

WHAT IS YOUR REACTION TO

SAYING THAT TO A MILLION?

HE HAS A PLAN, A DESTINY FOR

YOUR LIFE.

DR. HICKY BEGAN HER PREACHING

IN A SMALL DENVER CHURCH NOW

REACHING OUT TO THE MUSLIM

WORLD.

REASON I AM FOCUSSING, BEFORE

ALL OF THIS WAS SUCH A MESS AND

THE WORLD, GOD SPOKE TO ME TO

PRAY OVER MUSLIM COUNTRIES.

I THOUGHT THIS IS CRAZY, I AM AN

AMERICAN WOMAN.

I MEMORIZED 40 COUNTRIES AND

PRAYED OVER THEM EVERYDAY FOR A

LONG TIME, MAYBE FOUR YEARS AND

MORE.

GOD BEGAN TO SEND ME TO THEM.

MARILYN GIVES ALL THE GLORY

TO JESUS.

HER MASS GATHERINGS HAVE SEEN

COUNTLESS MIRACLES.

[ FOREIGN SPEAKING ] [APPLAUSE]

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.

THEY CALL ME MOM.

HAH, I AM TELLING YOU THE

MUSLIMS CALL ME MOTHER OF

PAKISTAN.

THAT IS GOD'S FAVOR.

I DON'T COMPROMISE ANYTHING.

I TELL EXACTLY HOW JESUS DIED

FOR YOUR SINS, AROSE FROM THE

DEAD.

IF YOU REPENT AND BELIEVE THAT,

HE WILL COME INTO YOUR HEART.

IT IS NOT A COMPROMISING

MESSAGE.

IT IS A HEALING MESSAGE FOR

SPIRIT.

GOT TO LOVE MARILYN HICKY.

> RIGHT NOW, TIME FOR YOUR

TUESDAY TWEETABLE.

IF YOU HAVE SUFFERED LOSS AND DI

APPOINTMENT, CELEBRATE AND

PREPARE FOR WHAT GOD HAS IN

STORE.

YOUR LATTER WILL BE GREATER THAN

YOUR PAST.
