Efrem: WELCOME TO CBN

NEWS "NEWSWATCH," I'M

EFREM GRAHAM.

ONE OF PRESIDENT'S'

EVANGELICAL ADVISORS SAYS

THERE IS NOT A RACIST BONE

IN HIS BODY.

MARK MARTIN HAS THIS

STORY.

BUT, STILL, LIKE DUST,

I'LL RISE.

Reporter: HUNDREDS

GATHERED IN

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA,

MONDAY NIGHT FOR A MARCH

WITH PEACE.

PARTICIPANTS HELD A

CANDLELIGHT VIGIL IN HONOR

OF 32-YEAR-OLD HEATHER

HEYER, THE WOMAN KILLED

WHEN AN ATTACKER DROVE A

CAR INTO A CROWD OF

PROTESTORS.

THE VIGIL FOLLOWED AN

EMOTIONAL MEMORIAL FOR

HEATHER HEYER.

THEY TRIED TO KILL MY

DAUGHTER TO SHUT HER UP.

WELL, GUESS WHAT?

YOU JUST MAGNIFIED HER.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP CALLED HER BEAUTIFUL

AND INCREDIBLE, AND A

TRULY SPECIAL YOUNG WOMAN.

ONE OF THE PRESIDENT'S

EVANGELICAL ADVISORS,

PASTOR ROBERT JEFFRIES,

BLASTED THE WHITE

SUPREMACY MOVEMENT AS

DEMONIC.

AND HE SAYS LIBERALS ARE

WRONG WHEN THEY ACCUSE

PRESIDENT TRUMP AS RACIST.

THERE IS AN EFFORT TO

DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY

TO TAKE THIS PRESIDENT

DOWN.

THE MEDIA HAS PAINTED, THE

LIBERALS HAVE PAINTED, A

FALSE NARRATIVE THAT THE

PRESIDENT IS A RACIST.

EVERY TIME HE TRIES TO

BREAK OUT OF THAT BOX,

LIBERALS AREN'T GOING TO

ALLOW HIM TO DO IT.

I KNOW THE PRESIDENT, YOU

KNOW THE PRESIDENT, AND

THERE IS NOT A RACIST BONE

IN HIS BODY.

Reporter: AND

FRANKLIN GRAHAM SAYS SATAN

IS TO BLAME FOR THE

VIOLENCE, NOT THE

PRESIDENT.

BUT THE NEWS COVERAGE HAS

SPARKED OUTRAGE ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

President Trump: I

THINK THERE IS BLAME ON

BOTH SIDES.

Reporter: CORPORATE

LEADERS PROTESTED BY

PULLING OUT OF TRUMP'S

BUSINESS ADVISORY

COUNCILS, SO THE PRESIDENT

HAS NOW CLOSED DOWN HIS

ECONOMIC PANELS.

HE TWEETED: "RATHER THAN

PUTTING PRESSURE ON THE

BUSINESS PEOPLE IN THE

STRATEGY AND POLICY FORUM,

I AM ENDING BOTH.

THANK YOU ALL."

AND IT HAS LED TO EFFORTS

TO REMOVE SYMBOLS OF

CONFEDERACY IN STATES

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

IN NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, A

LARGE CROWD GATHERED

WEDNESDAY EVENING AT THE

CONFEDERATE MONUMENT FOR A

PEACEFUL PROTEST.

I'M HERE TO SUPPORT

EQUALITY.

WE HAVE PROGRESSED SO MUCH

AS A SOCIETY, WE H SHOULD

NONOT ALLOW THE FREEDOM OF

SPEECH TO CAUSE HATE

SPEECH.

Reporter: THE COUNTRY

NEEDS RECONCILIATION AND

HEALING.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: PRESIDENT

TRUMP ALSO USED TWITTER TO

WEIGH IN ON ALABAMA'S

REPUBLICAN RACE.

SENATOR LUTHER STRANGE AND

FORMER ALABAMA CHIEF

JUSTICE ROY MOORE ARE

HEADED TO A RUNOFF TO FILL

THE SEAT PREVIOUSLY HELD

BY JEFF SESSIONS.

THE PRESIDENT TWEETED THAT

HIS ENDORSEMENT OF MOORE.

THE WINNER WILL FACE DOUG

JONES COMING IN DECEMBER.

> A TOP CHINESE GENERAL

SAYS THE U.S. SHOULD TAKE

MILITARY ACTION AGAINST

NORTH KOREA -- IT SHOULD

TAKE IT OFF THE TABLE.

HE SAID ALL SIDES SHOULD

SHOW RESTRAINT OF

INCREASING TENSIONS IN THE

CONFLICT.

HE SAID A MILITARY

SOLUTION WOULD BE

ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIC, BUT

ADDED IT IS UNIMAGINABLE

TO ALLOW KIM JONG-UN TO

DEVELOP A WAR HEAD THAT

COULD TARGET THE UNITED

STATES.

> MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE

THEY ARE SINNERS BUT

DISAGREE ON WHAT TO DO

ABOUT IT.

67% OF AMERICANS BELIEVE

THEY ARE SINFUL.

HOWEVER, ONLY A QUARTER OF

AMERICANS SAY THEY RELY ON

JESUS TO OVERCOME THEIR

SIN.

MEANWHILE, A THIRD OF

AMERICANS SAY THEY ARE

WORKING ON BECOMING LESS

SINFUL THEMSELVES.

10% OF AMERICANS BELIEVE

SIN DOESN'T EXIST OR THEY

ARE NOT GUILTY OF SIN AT

ALL.

AND THE SURVEY ALSO FOUND

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS ARE

MORE LIKELY TO SAY THEY

RELY ON JESUS TO DEFEAT

SIN.

> STILL AHEAD HERE ON

CBN "NEWSWATCH," WE'RE

GOING TO TAKE YOU TO ONE

OF THE MOST POTENTIALLY

DANGEROUS PLACES ON EARTH,

FOUR MILES FROM THE NORTH

KOREAN BORDER.

SEE WHY SOUTH KOREANS HERE

ARE RISKING THEIR LIVES TO

LAUNCH THOUSANDS OF BRIGHT

ORANGE BALLOONS.

Efrem: NORTH KOREA IS

Efrem: NORTH KOREA IS

A GROWING THREAT TO THE

WORLD, BUT IT HAS ALWAYS

DEPRESSED ITS OWN

CITIZENS.

FOR CHRISTIANS THERE,

BELIEVING IN GOD COULD

CARRY A DEATH SENTENCE.

BUT ONE GROUP IS DEPLOYING

BALLOON BIBLE OFFENSIVE TO

ENCOURAGE THEIR COUNTRY'S

BIBLE BELIEVERS.

George: JUST BEFORE

SUNSET, A VANLOAD OF

CHRISTIANS FROM SEOUL

HEADS NORTH.

WE CANNOT SHOW YOU THEIR

FACES OR REVEAL THEIR

NAMES.

WHAT WE'RE DOING COULD

GET US INTO TROUBLE.

George: WHERE ARE WE

GOING TODAY?

WE'RE GOING HERE, SOME

FOUR MILES FROM THE NORTH

KOREAN BORDER, AND CLOSE

TO THE DEMILITARIZED ZONE.

George: THE

DEMILITARIZED ZONE, OR

D.M.Z., IS ONE OF THE MOST

HEAVILY FORTIFIED AND

POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS

PLACES ON EARTH.

WE'LL JUST WAIT UP HERE

AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS,

SIR.

George: ONE MILLION

NORTH KOREAN TROOPS STAND

READY ON THEIR SIDE OF THE

D.M.Z..

THE SOUTH HAS JUST AS

MANY.

ONE FACTOR THAT COULD RUIN

THIS WHOLE THING IS THE

WEATHER.

ONE SLIDE CHANGE IN THE

WIND DIRECTION COULD MESS

UP THE MISSION.

George: PETER HAS

DUBBED THIS "OPERATION

DANDELION."

WE STARTED THIS PROJECT

BACK IN 1991.

AND JUST AS A DANDELION

NEEDS THE WIND TO SPREAD

ITS SEEDS, WE NEED THE

WIND TO SPREAD THE

MESSAGE.

George: THAT MESSAGE

IS THE WORD OF GOD IN THE

KOREAN LANGUAGE ON

THOUSANDS OF BRIGHT ORANGE

BALLOONS.

IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE

TO GET BIBLES INTO NORTH

KOREA, SO USING BALLOONS

IS ONE OF THE MOST

EFFECTIVE WAYS TO SHARE

THE GOSPEL.

George: A TANK IN THE

BACK OF THE VAN PUMPS

HELIUM INTO THE BALLOONS.

THE TEAM WORKS QUICKLY,

ALL THE TIME KEEPING TABS

ON THE WIND'S DIRECTION.

PRAYERS ARE WHISPERED OVER

EACH BALLOON, AND THEN THE

RELEASE.

A FEW MINUTES LATER, THE

BALLOONS BEGIN THEIR SLOW

DRIFT OVER NORTH KOREAN

AIR SPACE.

BY SENDING THESE

BALLOONS, WE LET OUR NORTH

KOREAN BROTHERS AND

SISTERS KNOW WE ARE

PRAYING FOR THEM.

THE SCRIPTURES ON THE

BALLOONS ARE MEANT TO

ENCOURAGE THEM.

George: THE ERNEST

PRAYERS BEGIN HERE, AT

THIS UNDISCLOSED LOCATION

IN SEOUL.

EVERY WEEK SINCE 1991,

78-YEAR-OLD OH MU DUK HAS

BEEN PREPARED EACH BALLOON

INTO THE FLIGHT INTO NORTH

KOREA.

I WAS BORN IN NORTH

KOREA.

THIS IS MY WAY OF HELPING

TO GET THE GOSPEL BACK TO

MY COUNTRYMEN.

George: THE PROCESS

IS ALMOST DONE.

THEY'RE JUST PUTTING ON

THE FINAL TOUCHES.

IN ESSENCE, THIS IS HOW IT

WORKS: THEY HAVE A HOLE IN

HERE THAT THEY FILL HELIUM

IN AND PUT A TAPE AROUND

IT, AND OFF IT GOES INTO

THE SKIES OF NORTH KOREA.

THE HELIUM WILL LEAK

OUT OF THE BALLOON AND

EVENTUALLY FALL TO THE

GROUND.

WHEN SOMEONE PICKS IT UP,

THEY'LL BE ABLE TO READ

ALL 16 CHAPTERS OF THE

BOOK OF MARK.

George: THESE

BALLOONS ARE LARGER AND

CONTAIN A SMALL RADIO, A

BIBLE, AND OTHER CHRISTIAN

LITERATURE.

IN ADDITION TO THE BALLOON

OPERATION, PETER'S GROUP

ORGANIZES A WEEKLY RADIO

BROADCAST THAT IS RECORDED

IN SEOUL AND THEN

TRANSMITTED OVER SHORT

WAVE FREQUENCIES INTO

NORTH KOREA.

IT IS LIKE A REGULAR

CHURCH SERVICE.

THE NORTH KOREAN

GOVERNMENT ROUTINELY TRIES

TO JAM OUR SIGNALS, BUT WE

HAVE OTHER METHODS AND

GETTING THE MESSAGE

ACROSS.

George: CBN OBTAINED

EXCLUSIVE AUDIO RECORDINGS

AND PHOTOGRAPHS OF CHURCH

SERVICES INSIDE NORTH

KOREA.

[WHISPERING]

George: AND WHEN A

NORTH KOREAN ACCEPTS JESUS

CHRIST, HE OR SHE WILL

FACE PERSECUTION,

IMPRISONMENT, AND POSSIBLY

DEATH BECAUSE OF THEIR

FAITH.

PETER GAVE CBN NEWS

FOOTAGE THAT APPARENTLY

AIRED ON A JAPANESE

TELEVISION CHANNEL,

ALLEGEDLY SHOWING THE

EXECUTION OF KOREAN

CHRISTIANS.

[YELLING]

George: DRYING T TRYING TO GET

PRECISE FIGURES TODAY ON

THE NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS

IN NORTH KOREA IS

EXTREMELY DIFFICULT.

WE ESTIMATE THERE ARE

APPROXIMATELY 30,000

CHRISTIANS BEING HELD IN

POLITICAL PRISON CAMPS,

AND ABOUT 10,000

UNDERGROUND BELIEVERS WHO

ARE IN HIDING THROUGHOUT

THE COUNTRY.

George: BACK ALONG A

STRETCH OF THE NORTH/SOUTH

KOREAN BORDER, IT IS A

LITTLE PAST MIDNIGHT.

USING THE COVER OF

DARKNESS...PETER'S TEAM

CONTINUED TO DEPLOY

HUNDREDS OF BALLOONS AT

MULTIPLE LOCATIONS.

TODAY THE WIND CONDITIONS

HAVE BEEN GOOD.

OFTEN THE WINDS WILL

CHANGE SUDDENLY, AND WE

HAVE TO WAIT.

SOMETIMES WE COME BACK THE

NEXT DAY.

WE ARE PERSISTENT.

PEOPLE'S LIVES ARE ON THE

LINE.

WE WILL CONTINUE SOME THE

CHRISTIANS CAN WORSHIP

JESUS CHRIST WITHOUT FEAR.

George: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS,

SOMEWHERE NEAR THE NORTH

KOREAN BORDER.

Efrem: UP NEXT, THE

UP COMING SOLAR ECLIPSE IS

REALLY GOING TO BE

SOMETHING SPECIAL, BUT

COULD THIS AMAZING

PHENOMENON BE A DIVINE

SIGN?

EXPERTS ARE WEIGHING IN

NEXT.

Efrem: MONDAY'S TOTAL

Efrem: MONDAY'S TOTAL

SOLAR ECLIPSE IS REALLY

GOING TO BE SOMETHING

SPECIAL TO SEE, BUT THI THIS

HEAVENLY WONDER GIVES US A

CHANCE TO PONDER WHETHER

IT SHOWS US THERE IS MORE

TO THIS UNIVERSE THAN

MEETS THE EYE.

HERE IS PAUL STRAND.

Paul Reporter: MANY FOLKS

BELIEVE ONLY IN WHAT THEY

CAN SEE.

SINCE THEY CAN'T SEE GOD

FROM THEIR OBSERVATORY,

THEY DOUBT HE EXISTS.

BUT OTHERS WATCH AN

AMAZING PHENOMENON THAT

APPEARS OVER EARTH

OCCASIONALLY.

A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE, AND

THEY DOUBT SUCH A THING

CAN HAPPEN JUST BY

ACCIDENT.

THIS AS TRO ASTRONOMER AND

MINISTER BELIEVES THE MOON

OVER THE HUMONGOUS SUN

OVER A TOTAL ECLIPSE TOO

EXACT TO BE SE SERENDIPITY.

THE SUN IS 400 TIMES

AWAY FROM US THAN THE

MOON, BUT THE SUN IS 400

TIMES BIGGER.

Reporter: ON THE

OTHER SIDE IS THIS

ASTRONOMER.

IT IS A BIG UNIVERSE,

AND THERE ARE A LOT OF

COINCIDENCES.

SO I THINK IT IS JUST A

RANDOM HAPP HAPPEN STANCE.

Reporter: STILL, BOTH

THE BELIEVER AND THE

DOUBTER ARE IN AWE OF THE

COMING ECLIPSE.

WE'VE GOT A GROUP OF

ABOUT 140 PEOPLE GOING

WITH US TO THE DESERTER OF

OREGON TO VIEW THAT

ECLIPSE.

IT IS PRETTY A PRETTY

ASTOUNDING THING THAT

EVERYTHING LINES UP JUST

RIGHT FOR US TO HAVE THIS

EXPERIENCE.

WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO

GET OUR TELESCOPES UP ON

TOP OF THE HILL.

WHERE PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE

TO WATCH THE SHADOW OF THE

SUN RACE TOWARDS US AT

ABOUT 800 MILES AN HOUR.

Reporter: IT WILL SEE

THE MOON 100% BLOCK THE

SUN, BUT IT IS ONLY ABOUT

100 KILOMETRES WIDE.

THERE IS STILL GOING TO

BE A PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE

THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE U.S.

HERE IN WASHINGTON, D.C.,

THE SUN WILL BE ABOUT 80%

BLOCKED.

Reporter: SHE IS

PLANNING TO SET UP HER

TELESCOPE OUTSIDE OF THE

GEORGE WASHINGTON

UNIVERSITY CAMPUS.

JUST GRAB ANYONE WHO

HAPPENS TO BE WALKING BY,

AND SAY, HEY, DO YOU WANT

TO SEE A SOLAR ECLIPSE.

BUT THE SUN IS SO BRIGHT,

YOU LITERALLY DAMAGE YOUR

EYE AND BURN YOUR RETINA.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE SUN

WITHOUT ANY PROTECTION,

AND IT IS SO BRIGHT THAT

YOU NEED TO BLOCK 99.99%

OF THE LIGHTS IN ORDER TO

LOOK AT IT SAFELY.

Reporter: PASTOR ROSS

PONDERS HOW MANY EXAMPLES

OF DIVINE FINE-TUNING HE

SAYS FROM THE MOON TO THE

MILKY WAY.

THE FACT THAT THE MASS AND

PLACEMENT OF OUR MOON AND

ALL PLANETS HAVE TO BE

EXACTLY LIKE THEY ARE.

THE ENTIRE SOLAR SYSTEM

HAS BEEN HIGHLY FINE-TUNED

TO MAKE POSSIBLE THE

EXISTENCE OF THIS.

Reporter: HE POINTS

OUT IT IS LIKE THAT FOR

THE ENTIRE MILKY WAY.

REASONS TO BELIEVE THAT

854 FEATURES ACROSS THE

GAGALAXY COULD BE SO

FINE-TUNED.

WITHOUT THE CREATOR GOD

OF THE BIBLE TO MAKE

ADVANCED LIFE POSSIBLE

HERE ON PLANET EARTH --

THAT PROBABILITY MUCH BE

MUCH LE LESS THAN ONE CHANCE

IN 10 TO THE 150th

POWER.

Reporter: IT WOULD BE

LIKE SOMEONE WINNING THE

LOTTERY 150 TIMES IN A ROW

WHEN THEY ONLY BOUGHT ONE

TICKET EACH TIME.

IT MAKES IT HARD TO

BELIEVE THERE IS NO

GREATER POWER BEHIND ALL

OF THIS.

Efrem: WE ARE LESS

THAN A WEEK AWAY FROM A

MAJOR EVENT IN THE SKIES.

THIS IS AN OCCASION WHEN

WE SHOULD PUT DOWN OUR

SMAR PHONES ANSMARTPHONES AND EXPERIENCE

THIS HISTORIC EVENT.

JOINING ME NOW IS NASA

SCIENTIST JIM GARVIN.

WHAT WILL WE EXPERIENCE

NEXT WEEK?

IT IS GOING TO BE

SPECTACULAR.

THIS IS A ONCE IN A

CENTURY EVENT ACROSS THE

WHOLE UNITED STATES, FROM

OREGON TO SOUTH CAROLINA.

HERE IN THE D.C. AREA,

WE'LL HAVE A BLOCKING OF

NEARLY 80% OF THE SUN.

AND SO NIGHT WILL COME

DURING MIDDAY, ROUGHLY

AROUND 2:42 p.m., AND

DUE TO THE PASSAGE OF THE

MOON BETWEEN THE SUN AND

THE EARTH.

THIS KIND OF ECLIPSE WAS

NEARLY 100 YEARS AGO.

THESE ARE SPECIAL EVENTS

THAT WILL ALLOW US TO

APPRECIATE HOW SPACE

WORKS, HOW THE DANCE OF

OUR SUN, MOON, EARTH

SYSTEM TELLS US ABOUT THE

ATMOSPHERE AND THE SUN AND

EVEN HOW THE ATMOSPHERE

RESPONDS.

Efrem: EXCITING.

WE HAVE BEEN TOLD NEVER TO

LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN,

EVEN WITH SUNGLASSES.

SO HOW CAN WE ENJOY THE

ECLIPSE SAFELY.

WELL, YOU NEED THE

SPECIAL GLASSES.

THESE ARE REALLY DARK.

100,000 TIMES OR MORE

DARKER THAN YOUR

SUNGLASSES.

THESE ARE PROTECTIVE

GLASSES.

YOU CAN GET THEM AT LOCAL

SCIENCE MUSEUMS, STORES,

SCHOOLS.

THEY'RE AVAILABLE IN SOME

PLACES FROM NASA CENTERS.

AND THEY ALLOW YOU TO

OBSERVE THIS SOLAR ECLIPSE

SAFELY.

PLEASE DON'T OBSERVE IT

WITHOUT THEM.

AND YOU CAN DO AN INDIRECT

EXPERIMENT BY PUNCHING A

HOLE IN A PIECE OF PAPER,

AND YOU CAN WATCH WHAT

COMES THROUGH THE HOLE

WHEN THE ECLIPSE UP TO 81%

IN THE D.C. AREA.

YOU CAN SEE THE LITTLE

EXPERIMENT ON THE SCREEN.

SO THERE ARE DIFFERENT

WAYS OF PARTICIPATING.

YOU MAKE A BOX-TYPE

VIEWING DEVICE WHERE YOU

CAN LOOK DOWN AND SEE THE

SHADOW OF THE SUN BEING

BLOCKED BY THE MOON AS

WELL.

SO LOTS OF SAFE WAYS TO DO

IT.

Efrem: SO WHEN IS IT

SAFE TO FINALLY TAKE OFF

OUR SOLAR GLASS.

IF YOU'RE WEARING THE

GLASSES, YOU'LL SEE

NOTHING, AND THE SUN WILL

GO TOTALLY DARK.

AND THERE WILL BE A SHORT

PERIOD OF TIME, TWO

MINUTES OR SO.

IT WILL EXTEND FROM OREGON

THROUGH THE MIDWEST AND

WYOMING AND NEBRASKA,

ACROSS MISSOURI, KENTUCKY,

AND INTO SOUTH CAROLINA

AND NORTHERN GEORGIA.

THE REST OF THE COUNTRY,

YOU NEED THE GLASSES.

Efrem: FOR THOSE NOT

IN THE PATH OF TOTALITY,

WHAT INTERESTING THINGS

SHOULD WE BE LOOKING FOR?

WEARING THE GLASSES,

YOU'LL SEE BEAUTIFUL

PATTERNS OF LITTLE MINI

SUNS.

THERE IS THE PATTERN OF

THE SUN THROUGH THE

LEAVES, THE FILTERS OF THE

LEAVES AS A BLOCKING

AGENT.

BEAUTIFUL PATTERNS.

MOTHER NATURE MAKING ART

FROM AN ECLIPSE.

IF YOU'RE WEARING THE

GLASSES, YOU'LL BE ABLE TO

SEE THE SORT OF PAC MAN

SUN.

IT IS A REALLY SPECIAL

EVENT FOR PEOPLE, TO FEEL

THE POWER OF THESE OBJECTS

IN SPACE.

Efrem: I CAN HEAR IN

YOUR VOICE EXCITEMENT.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT THIS THAT

MAKES IT SO EXCITING?

IT IS BECAUSE WE LIVE

IN SPACE.

AND TO SEE HOW OUR PARENT

HOME SUN, OUR SUN, IS

AFFECTED BY OUR RATHER

EXCITING MOON, IS

SPECTACULAR.

WATCHING THE SUN WORK, AND

HOW IT AFFECTS SPACE

WEATHER, WHICH AFFECTS OUR

LIVES HERE ON EARTH, IS

REALLY SPECTACULAR.

WE STUDY THAT HERE AT

NASA.

SO DO OTHER AGENCIES IN

THE UNITED STATES AND

AROUND THE WORLD.

AND MAKING AND LIVING WITH

OUR PARENT SUN IS A

SPECIAL PART OF WHO WE ARE

HERE ON PLANET EARTH.

Efrem: WHERE CAN WE

GO TO LEARN MORE AS WE

ANTICIPATE THIS COMING?

SO WE HAVE A WEBSITE,

eclipse2017.NASA.com.

AND THERE IS A WEBSITE

CALLED KATE.

BUT GO TO THE WEBSITES AND

WATCH ONLINE AND GET

INVOLVED.

IT IS ONE OF THOSE SPECIAL

EVENTS THAT REALLY MAKES

US ALL EXCITED.

Efrem: REAL QUICK,

WHERE WILL YOU BE WATCHING

FROM?

I'LL BE HERE AT NASA.

WATCHING THROUGH THE EYES

OF OUR SATELLITES.

WE'LL BE LOOKING BACK FROM

THE MOON AT THE EARTH WITH

OUR LUNAR RECONNAISSANCE

ORBITER.

SO WE'LL BE DOING OUR

THING IN SPACE AS THIS

EVENT TOUCHES ALL ON THE

GROUND.

Efrem: THANK YOU,

JIM.

SURE, MY PLEASURE.

Efrem: AND WE HAVE

ADVANCED COVERAGE OF THE

ECLIPSE FOR YOU AT

cbn.com.STAY WIT.

Efrem: THERE IS A

COFFEE SHOP IN WILMINGTON,

SOUTH CAROLINA, SERVING UP

MORE THAN JUST YOUR

AVERAGE CUP OF JOE.

IT IS THE SHOP THAT IS

GIVING PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL

NEEDS THE CHANCE TO WORK.

Reporter: EFREM, YOU

WON'T FIND A MORE

WELCOMING SHOP THAN GIDEON

BOWS IN NORTH CAROLINA.

IT GIVES PEOPLE WITH

SPECIAL NEEDS THE CHANCE

TO WORK, AND IT IS PUTTING

SMILES ON EVERYONE'S

FACES.

THEY WELCOME COSTUMERS,

TAKE DRINK ORDERS, AND RUN

THE CASH REGISTER.

THE SHOP'S OWNER SAYS IT

WAS AN IDEA GOD GAVE HER.

AND IT WAS INSPIRED BY HER

OWN TWO CHILDREN WHO HAVE

DOWN SYNDROME.

HI.

HI.

WE'RE BROTHERS AND

SISTERS.

Reporter: THESE TWO

ARE NOT LOOKING FOR JOBS

RIGHT NOW, BUT THEIR MOM

HAS ALWAYS HAD A HEART TO

HELP PEOPLE LIKE THEM.

YOU SEE, ALMOST EVERYONE

ON STAFF HAS A DISABILITY,

FROM DOWN SYNDROME TO

AUTISM, AND EVEN SEASONAL CEREBRAL

PALSY, BUT THINKS TO AMY,

THEY'RE LIVING OUT THEIR

WORK DREAMS AND HAVING A

GOOD TIME DOING IT.

THE SHOP IS A BIG HIT IN

THIS TOWN.

AMY TOLD US THE BEST PART

OF HER JOB IS BUILDING

COMMUNITY BETWEEN

ACCEPTANCE, COMMUNITY, AND

LOVE.

NOT A DAY GOES BY THAT

TEARS ARE NOT SHED, AND

THEY'RE HAPPY TEARS

BECAUSE WE FEEL LIKE WE'RE

MAKING A DIFFERENCE.

WE SEE THAT WHEN GUESTS

COME IN AND THEIR HEARTS

ARE CHANGED.

Reporter: THEY ARE

HELPING TO BRIDGE A GAP IN

WILMINGTON.

SO IF YOU'RE EVER IN THE

WILMINGTON AREA, STOP BY

AND GRAB A CUP OF JOE.

I'M TALLIAH WISE.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, SPEND A

LITTLE TIME SPREADING GOOD

NEWS.

Efrem: THE KING OF

ROCK AND ROLL AND THE KING

OOF KINGS COMES TOGETHER.

ELVIS FANS CAN SEE

PERSONAL NOTES THAT THE

KING LEFT BEHIND ON THE

PAGES OF HIS OWN BIBLE.

THEY'RE PARTNERING WITH

THE "U" VERSION BIBLE APP

TO OFFER IT ON THIS 40th

ANNIVERSARY OF HIS DEATH.

YOU CAN LEARN MORE AT

cbnnews.com.

> AND NOW IT IS TIME FOR

YOUR THURSDAY THANKFUL.

FATHER, IN A TIME OF

FRUSTRATION AND CONFUSION,

I AM THANKFUL THAT YOU

CALL ON ME TO SIMPLY TRUST

YOU.

IT DOESN'T MATTER THAT I

DON'T UNDERSTAND.

ALL THAT MATTERS IS THAT

MY FAITH RESTS IN YOU.

WITH THAT WORD, MAKE THIS

A THANKFUL THURSDAY AND A

WONDERFUL REST OF THE

WEEK.
