George: THIS WEEK ON

IT'S KNOWN AS THE LAND OF

THE BLUE SKY.

AND IT'S WHERE A CAMP IS

CHANGING LIVES ONE YOUNG

PERSON AT A TIME.

Wendy: PLUS...HE

LOVES TO SING AND HE LOVES

TO PREACH.

BUT WHEN CANCER ATTACKED

HIS TONGUE, HE LEARNED HOW

TO FIGHT.

George: AND...THIS

PRAYER LEADER SAYS IT IS

THE YEAR OF THE WOMAN, AND

HE BELIEVES EVEN HOLLYWOOD

KNOWS IT IS THE TRUTH.

MILLIONS TO RISE UP AND

PRAY.

*

George: HELLO,

EVERYONE.

WELCOME TO THIS WEEK'S

EDITION OF "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS."

I'M GEORGE THOMAS.

WITH MY LOVELY

CO-ANCHOR --

Wendy: WENDY

GRIFFITH.

NICE TO SEE YOU ALL.

WELCOME TO OUR Facebook

FANS AS WELL.

BE SURE TO POST YOUR

COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS.

AND WE'LL BE READING THEM

ONSET THROUGHOUT THE SHOW.

> MONGOLIA IS ONE OF THE

MOST REMOTEST REGIONS OF

THE WORLD.

VERY FEW PEOPLE HAVE HEARD

OF JESUS CHRIST THERE.

George: A RUSSIAN

CHRISTIAN TEAM RECENTLY

WENT TO THE REGION TO

SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS.

AND I HAD THE TREMENDOUS

PRIVILEGE OF ESCORTING THE

TEAM ON ITS MISSIONARY

JOURNEY.

MONGOLIA IS KNOWN AS THE

LAND OF THE BLUE SKY.

THAT'S BECAUSE PEOPLE HERE

ENJOY MORE THAN 250 SUNNY

DAYS A YEAR.

LAND-LOCKED BETWEEN CHINA

AND RUSSIA, IT IS ONE OF

THE WORLD'S LEAST DENSELY

POPULATED COUNTRIES.

WITH JUST OVER THREE

MILLION PEOPLE.

MORE THAN HALF LIVE IN THE

BUSTLING CITY OF BOLATON.

THE REST OF MONGOLIA LOOKS

LIKE THIS, VAST, TREELESS

GRASSLANDS WHERE MOST

PEOPLE LIVE A NOMATIC

LIFESTYLE, RAISING SHEEP,

GOATS, CATTLE, AND HORSES.

AND AS I DISCOVERED, THERE

ARE HARDLY ANY PAVED

ROADS.

THIS IS MY FIRST TIME

DRIVING HERE IN MONGOLIA.

I GREW UP IN AFRICA.

I LOVED DRIVING A STICK

SHIFT, SO I'M VERY, VERY

COMFORTABLE ON THESE TYPES

OF ROADS.

THERE IS NO TRAFFIC.

I RECENTLY JOINED 46

CHRISTIANS FROM

NEIGHBORING RUSSIA,

HEADING TO REMOTE WESTERN

MONGOLIA WHERE FEW HAVE

HEARD THE MESSAGE OF

CHRIST'S LOVE.

PAVEL LED THE MISSION.

THE HEART OF MY LORD

JESUS CHRIST IS FOR THE

LOST AND HURTING.

I WANT TO HAVE THE SAME

HEART.

George: FOR NINE

YEARS, HE HAS MADE DOZENS

OF TRIPS TO MONGOLIA,

BRINGING ALONG YOUNG

RUSSIAN CHRISTIANS,

TRAINED AND EQUIPPED TO

SERVE AS POSSIBLE

MISSIONARIES AND

EVANGELISTS.

17-YEAR-OLD ALENA TOLD CBN

NEWS SHE GOT THE CALL TO

MISSIONS AT A YOUNG AGE.

THIS IS HER THIRD VISIT TO

MONGOLIA.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator: I

READ THE BOOK ABOUT A

MISSIONARY IN A FOREIGN

COUNTRY.

AND SINCE THEN, I HAVE HAD

THIS BURNING DESIRE TO

SHARE GOD'S LOVE WITH

PEOPLE.

George: THIS IS

NATASHQUANATASHA GORODNUK'S FIRST

TRIP.

EVERY TIME I THINK

ABOUT IT, MY HEART BREAKS

BECAUSE I KNOW THE CALLING

ON MY LIFE AND I KNOW WHAT

I AM SUPPOSED TO DO.

George: THEY

PARTNERED WITH MONGOLIAN

CHRISTIANS TO HOLD

CHRISTIAN CAMPS FOR THE

YOUNG PEOPLE.

WE STARTED THIS TO

REACH GOD'S PEOPLE WITH

GOD'S LOVE.

IT IS VITAL FOR CHANGING

HEARTS AND MINDS.

George: IN BETWEEN

PLAYING GAMES AND PLAYING

OTHER OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES,

CAMP ORGANIZERS, LIKE

NATASHA, INTRODUCED THE

PEOPLE TO CHRISTIANITY.

THIS IS HER 10th

MISSION.

THESE KIDS ARE THE

FUTURE OF MONGOLIA.

THEY ARE FUTURE PASTORS,

FUTURE CHURCH PLANTERS,

AND POSSIBLY FUTURE

LEADERS OF THIS COUNTRY.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

GOD WILLING, THEY WILL

SHARE THE GOSPEL IN THEIR

HEARTS AND TURN THEIR

NATION TO CHRIST.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

George: TO BETTER

APPRECIATE THE

SIGNIFICANCE OF THESE

CAMPS, YOU HAVE TO

UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY OF

CHRISTIANITY HERE IN

MONGOLIA.

SHORTLY AFTER THE FALL OF

COMMUNISM, THERE WERE ONLY

10 BELIEVERS IN THE ENTIRE

COUNTRY.

TODAY, SOME 36 YEARS

LATER, SOME 60,000

BELIEVERS ARE SPREAD

ACROSS THIS VAST NATION.

WE ARE IN A REMOTE

WESTERN PART OF MONGOLIA,

AND IT IS STILL ONE OF THE

MOST UNREACHED PLACES IN

THE WORLD.

George: MICHAEL

CHERENKOV WITH MISSION

EURASIA CO SPONSORED THE

CAMP.

SOMETIMES WE THINK THAT

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD

KNOW ABOUT JESUS, BUT

THERE ARE PLACES LIKE THIS

THAT HAVEN'T BEEN TOUCHED

BY THE GOSPEL.

George: AND SO CAMPS

LIKE THIS ONE SERVE AS AN

IDEAL GROUND FOR SHARING

THE GOSPEL.

WITH YOUNG

PEOPLE.

LIVES LIKE THAT OF THIS

22-YEAR-OLD.

SHE ACCEPTED CHRIST WHILE

ATTENDING CAMP HERE AS A

LITTLE GIRL.

SHE GRADUATED FROM BIBLE

COLLEGE IN MAY AND IS NOW

PREPARING TO GO ON THE

MISSION FIELD.

THIS CAMP WAS

FOUNDATIONAL TO KNOWING

GOD'S LOVE AND PREPARING

MY HEART TO BE A

MISSIONARY.

I TRY TO COME BACK EVERY

YEAR TO SHARE MY

EXPERIENCES OF HOW I

ENCOUNTERED CHRIST.

George: FOR OTHERS,

LIKE THIS 16-YEAR-OLD, A

BUDDHIST, THIS WAS THE

FIRST TIME LEARNING ABOUT

CHRISTIANITY.

I LEARNED IN THE BIBLE

STUDY TODAY THAT GOD

CREATED THE HEAVENS AND

THE EARTH AND THE ANIMALS

AND CREATURES OF THE SEA.

I NEVER KNEW OF THESE

STORIES BEFORE.

George: THIS IS ALSO

THIS WOMAN'S FIRST CAB

EXPERIENCE.

MANY MONGOLIA'S DON'T

BELIEVE IN JESUS.

BEFORE I CAME TO THE CAMP,

I ALSO THOUGHT I DIDN'T

NEED TO KNOW ANYTHING

ABOUT HIM.

BUT NOW MY HEART HAS

CHANGED AND I'VE LEARNED

SO MUCH MORE ABOUT

CHRISTIANITY.

George: IN ALL, SOME

1,000 YOUNG MONGOLIANS

HEARD ABOUT THE GOSPEMONGOLIANSHEARD THE G OSPEL FOR THE

FIRST TIME.

I KNOW THERE IS ALL OF

THIS POLITICAL TROUBLE,

WITH TRUMP.

I'M NOT INTERESTED IN

POLITICS.

I'M INTERESTED IN TELLING

PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS.

LIVES ARE IN THE BALANCE,

AND WE'RE COMMANDED TO GO

AND TELL OTHERS ABOUT

CHRIST'S LOVE.

THIS IS WHAT WE'RE DOING

HERE IN MONGOLIA.

Wendy: WELL, GEORGE,

YOU HAVE OFTEN BEEN ALL

OVER THE WORLD DOING

AMAZING STORIES LIKE THIS,

BUT THIS ONE REALLY STANDS

OUT.

WHAT WAS YOUR TAKE-AWAY

FROM SPENDING THAT TIME

WITH THESE PEOPLE IN

MONGOLIA.

George: JUST HOW VAST

THIS NATION IS.

THERE ARE ONLY THREE

MILLION PEOPLE IN THE

ENTIRE COUNTRY.

IT IS ONE OF THE LEAST

DENSELY POPULATED

COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD.

HALF OF THEM, 1.3, LIVE IN

THE REST OF THE CITY.

AND THE REST OF THE

COUNTRY IS BASICALLY

EMPTY, WHERE THERE ARE

MORE HORSES THAN HUMANS.

THAT WAS INCREDIBLE, TO

SEE THE BLUE SKY AND THE

VASTNESS WAS PHENOMENAL.

Wendy: WHAT DID GOD

SHOW YOU THAT PERHAPS WAS

A SURPRISE TO YOU WHILE

YOU WERE THERE?

George: I'LL TELL YOU

WHAT, IN THE DAY AND AGE

OF THIS DEVICE AND

TECHNOLOGY, THAT THERE ARE

PLACES, REMOTE PARTS OF

THE WORLD THAT LOOK LIKE

THAT.

AND IN THOSE PLACES WHERE

PEOPLE DON'T WALK AROUND

WITHOUT A CELL PHONE --

THEY HAVE A VERY SIMPLE

LIFE.

Wendy: SO THEY DON'T

HAVE CELL PHONES?

George: THEY DO, BUT

IN THESE REMOTE PLACES

WHERE THEY RIDE HORSES AND

RAISE SHEEP, GOATS, AND

CATTLE, AND TO IMAGINE

PLACES LIKE THIS EXIST,

AND YET THEY HAVE NEVER

HEARD THE NAME OF JESUS

CHRIST.

Wendy: AND YOU

WEREN'T ON A HORSE IN THIS

STORY?

George: NOT ON THIS

STORY, BUT I DID RIDE AN

ACTUAL MONGOLIAN RACE

HORSE.

Wendy: WHILE YOU WERE

THERE?

George: YES.

Wendy: ARE THERE MORE

MISSIONARIES LIKE THE

RUSSIAN TEAM RETURNING

THERE?

George: THERE

ABSOLUTELY ARE.

AND I THINK WHAT IS

EXCITING IS TO KNOW THERE

ARE BELIEVERS AROUND THE

WORLD WHO HAVE BEEN

POSITIVE IN THEIR LIFE --

THE GREAT COMMISSION, THAT

THEY WANT TO TAKE THE

GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST TO

THE OUTER MOST PARTS OF

THE WORLD.

THEY'RE NOT COMING FROM

AMERICA, FROM THE

TRADITIONAL PLACES WE

THINK OF EVANGELISTS, AND

THEY'RE COMING FROM

RUSSIA, CHINA, PAKISTAN,

LATIN-AMERICA, AND THEY

KIND OF LOOK LIKE ME, AS

OPPOSED TO LOOKING LIKE

YOU.

TO ME, I THINK THAT IS

EXCITING, THAT THE GOSPEL

OF JESUS CHRIST -- MANY

MORE PEOPLE ARE SAYING, IT

IS OUR TURN TO TAKE THIS

MESSAGE OF SALVATION TO

THE OUTER MOST PARTS OF

THE WORLD.

Wendy: WHAT DID GOD

TEACH YOU, GEORGE, THROUGH

THIS EXPERIENCE?

George: HERE WE HAVE

ALL OF THIS CONTROVERSY

BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES

AND RUSSIA, AND HERE THIS

MAN SAYS, YOU KNOW WHAT?

THIS IS NOT WHAT IS

IMPORTANT.

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE

DYING BECAUSE THEY HAVE

NEVER HEARD ABOUT JESUS

CHRIST.

AND THEY HAVE THIS LOVE TO

DO IT.

Wendy: WELL, AMAZING.

THANK YOU.

> EMILY JONES IS HERE

WITH US.

WHAT IS HAPPENING ON

Facebook, AND WHAT ARE

THEY SAYING ABOUT GEORGE'S

AMAZING STORY.

IT IS AMAZING.

WE HAVE PEOPLE VIEWING ALL

THE WAY FROM INDIA,

MEXICO, AND ILLINOIS.

THEY'RE SAYING THIS IS

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL STORY.

ONE OF THE QUESTIONS THAT

IS COMING UP A LOT IS,

WHAT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST

CHALLENGES TO THE SPREAD

OF THE GOSPEL IN MONGOLIA?

George: ONE OF THE

BIGGEST CHALLENGES IS

MATERIALISM.

I TALKED TO CHURCH LEADERS

THERE, AND PRETTY MUCH

LIKE WE HAVE HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES, WE'RE

OVERWHELMED AND

PREOCCUPIED BY SO MANY

DIFFERENT DISTRACTIONS.

THEY HAVE THEIR NOMATIC

LIVES, AND TO PUT AWAY ALL

OF THESE DISTRACTIONS,

TECHNOLOGY, LIVING OUT IN

THE COUNTRYSIDE, TO BE

ABLE TO FOCUS ON JESUS

CHRIST IS A HUGE

CHALLENGE, NOT JUST FOR

MONGOLIA BUT FOR US HERE

IN THE WEST.

ANOTHER QUESTION THAT

IS COMING UP LOT, THESE

CAMPS ARE FOCUSING ON THE

CHILDREN.

HOW ARE THE CHILDREN

TAKING THAT MESSAGE OF THE

GOSPEL BACK HOME TO THEIR

PARENTS?

George: FANTASTIC

QUESTIONS.

ONE OF THE YOUNG KIDS

SAID -- IMAGINE THIS -- HE

SAID, THIS IS THE FIRST

TIME THAT I HEARD THAT

SOME GOD HAD CREATED THE

HEAVENS AND THE EARTH AND

THE ANIMALS OF THE LAND

AND OF THE SEA.

TO IMAGINE THAT TODAY

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

NEVER HEARD THE STORY OF

THE BIBLE.

I THINK THAT IS

INCREDIBLE.

AND THEN THEY TAKE THAT

HOME, AND THEY SAY, MOM

AND DAD -- IT'S ABOUT

REACHING THE YOUNG

GENERATION, EMILY.

YOU HAIR THE GOSPE SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH

THEM WHEN THEY'RE YOUNG,

AND HOPEFULLY THEY WILL

SHARE THAT WITH THEIR

PARENTS, WHO MAY NOT KNOW

JESUS CHRIST, AND THEY

WILL, IN THE PROCESS,

SHARE PEACE AND THE GOSPEL

AND JESUS CHRIST.

THAT'S ALL WE HAVE

RIGHT NOW.

George: THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

Wendy: COMING UP,

PRAYER LEADER LOU ENGEL

SAYS IT IS THE YEAR OF THE

WOMAN.

AND HE IS CALLING THEM TO

RISE UP AND TAKE THEIR

PLACE ON THE FRONT LINES

OF PRAYER.

STAY WITH US.

George: HERE IN

AMERICA, THE "NATIONAL DAY

OF PRAYER" HAS A NEW

LEADER.

FORMER SOUTHERN BAPTIST

CONVENTION LEADER RONNIE

FLOYD WILL SERVE AS THE

NEW LEADER.

HE IS THE SENIOR PASTOR OF

NORTHWEST CHURCH IN

ARKANSAS.

FLOYD TOLD US HERE AT CBN

NEWS HE IS EXCITED TO TAKE

ON THIS NEW ROLE AND

INSPIRE OTHERS TO PRAY FOR

OUR LEADERS EVERY DAY, THE

NOT JUST ON THE FIRST

THURSDAY OF MAY.

TO ME, PRAYING FOR THE

LEADERS OF OUR NATION HAS

NOTHING TO DO WITH

POLITICAL PERSUASIONS,

PARTY PREFERENCES.

IT HAS TO DO WITH WHAT IS

RIGHT.

GOD HAS CALLED US IN HOLY

SCRIPTURE TO PRAY FOR THE

LEADERS OF OUR COUNTRY.

AND THAT'S WHAT I DO.

AND THAT'S WHAT I

CONTINUALLY DO EVERY DAY.

George: TERRIFIC.

AND HERE IS AN INTERESTING

FACTOID, PRESIDENT RONALD

REAGAN DESIGNATED THE

FIRST THURSDAY OF MAY AS

THE "NATIONAL DAY OF

PRAYER" WAY BACK IN 1988.

Wendy: AND GOD BLESS

HIM FOR THAT.

> PREPARE THEIR ESTHER,

AND FIGHT LIKE DEBRA.

THAT'S THE CHALLENGE FOR

WOMEN IN AMERICA FROM THE

CALL FOUNDER LOU ENGEL.

RECENTLY I TALKED WITH LOU

ABOUT WHY HE SAYS OUR

COUNTRY NEEDS WOMEN TO

RISE UP NOW MORE THAN EVER

BEFORE.

WELL, IN JANUARY OF THIS

YEAR, WE SAW THOUSANDS OF

WOMEN ON THE MALL IN

WASHINGTON, D.C.

MAINLY IN PROTEST OF THE

ELECTION AND PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

YOU MET A LOT OF CHRISTIAN

WOMEN WHO SAID TO YOU,

THAT'S NOT MY MARCH.

AND NOW YOU'RE DOING

SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

WELL, WE'RE GATHERING,

REALLY FROM THE 6th,

7th, AND 8th, 50

STATES, CALLED AWAKEN THE

DAWN.

50 STATES ARE COME FOR DAY

AND NIGHT WORSHIP CALL

"AWAKEN THE DAWN."

AND ON COLUMBUS DAY WE'RE

CALLING THE WOMEN OF

AMERICA, YOUNG AND OLD, TO

GATHER TOGETHER AND TO

SEEK GOD AND PRAY, DARING

TO BELIEVE IT WILL SHIFT

HISTORY IN AMERICA.

Wendy: WHY IS THIS

THE HOUR FOR WOMEN, LOU?

IT IS INTERESTING.

WE'VE BEEN HEARING IT ALL

OVER THE PLACE.

ONE YOUNG LADY WAS READING

PSALM 68: 11: "AND THE

LORD GIVES THE COMMAND,

GREAT IS THE NUMBER OF THE

WOMEN WHO HERALD THE GOOD

NEWS."

SHE WENT INTO 21 DAYS

FASTING, PRAYING GOD WOULD

BIRTH A PSALM 68 WOMEN'S

MOVEMENT.

THIS IS WHAT THAT IS.

WE FEEL IT IS THE HOUR FOR

WOMEN TO ARISE WITH A

GODLY FOUNDATION, NOT

LOOKING TO THAT MARCH THAT

TOOK PLACE AFTER THE

ELECTION -- A GODLY

FOUNDATION TO PRAY.

IT REALLY STARTED WITH A

WOMAN IN 2010, WHO WAS

PRAYING ON A ROCK, MARY

WASHINGTON'S ROCK IN

VIRGINIA, WHERE MARY

WASHINGTON PRAYED FOR HER

SON DURING THE WAR.

GEORGE WASHINGTON --

PRAYING FOR THE SURVIVAL

OF THE NATION.

I PROPHESIED OVER HER.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

WOMEN WILL BE A PART OF

THIS MOVEMENT.

GOD EXPLODED THREE YEARS

AGO A REVELATION THAT THE

WOMEN WOULD BE A LAST

STAND AGAINST

UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, AND THEY

WOULD BIRTH A NEW JESUS

MOVEMENT.

THREE YEARS LATER, THAT

VISION IS COMING TO PASS.

Wendy: SPEAKING OF

THE JESUS MOVEMENT, IT HAS

BEEN SAID BY MANY PEOPLE

THAT THAT WAS BIRTHED

BECAUSE OF THE MOTHERS

THAT WERE PRAYING.

IS THAT RIGHT?

A DEAR FRIEND OF MINE

STUDIED REVIVALS.

AND HE SAID I FOUND A

PRAYER MOVEMENT THAT

PRECEDED EVERY PRAYER

MOVEMENT ACCEPT ONE.

AND HE SAID, LORD, WAS

THERE A PRAYER MOVEMENT?

AND THE LORD ANSWERED,

YES, I ANSWERED THE CRIES

OF A MILLION MOTHERS.

THEY WERE LOSING THEIR

KIDS IN THE '60 AND

'70s.

THEY BEGAN TO CRY TO GOD,

AND GOD GAVE US THOUSANDS.

WE HAVEN'T SEEN A REVIVAL

LIKE THAT SINCE THE '60s

AND '70s.

AND WE HAVE TO HAVE IT

AGAIN BECAUSE WE'RE LOSING

OUR GENERATION.

ESTHER PREPARED FOR A

YEAR.

WE NEED TO MOBILIZE, MOVE

WOMEN TO BUILD AN ALTER,

TO CRY OUT TO GOD.

AND, ALSO, I BELIEVE THAT

GOD IS RAISING UP WOMEN

FOR VOICES IN REFORMATION

AND GREAT EVANGELISTS.

I WENT TO ESTHER'S PARK IN

COLORADO FOR FIVE DAYS TO

PRAY, AND I HAD A DREAM OF

THOUSANDS OF WOMEN COMING

TO STUDY THE BOOK OF

ESTHER.

AND I KNEW THERE WAS

COMING AN ESTHER MOVEMENT.

WITH THAT VISION, WE'RE

CALLING WOMEN YOUNG AND

OLD, BY THE THOUSANDS, TO

COME TOGETHER ON

OCTOBER 9th AND CRY OUT

TO GOD.

SHIFT THIS NATION, RAISE

UP VOICES, AND DARE TO

BELIEVE FOR A NEW JESUS

MOVEMENT.

WE'RE SEIZING THE DAY AND

WE ONLY HAVE TWO MONTHS TO

PREPARE.

Wendy: WITH GOD, ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

IF ANYBODY CAN DO IT, LOU

ENGEL CAN.

SPEAKING OF ESTHER, GOD

USED HER, AND SHE WAS

OBVIOUSLY A WOMAN, TO SAVE

AN ENTIRE RACE OF PEOPLE.

IN THIS CASE, ONLY A WOMAN

COULD DO THAT.

YOU WERE SAYING IN THIS

HOUR WE'RE IN, THIS

SPIRITUAL HOUR, THAT GOD

IS SAYING TO YOU AND MANY

OTHERS THAT THIS IS THE

HOUR FOR WOMEN.

ONLY WOMEN CAN TURN THE

TIDE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING

RIGHT NOW.

WHEN I HAD THIS DREAM,

THE LORD SHOWED ME THERE

ARE CERTAIN POWERS OF

DARKNESS THAT CAN ONLY BE

BROKEN BY WOMEN.

AND I BELIEVE ABORTION IS

ONE OF THEM.

Wendy: HOW CAN WOMEN

GET THEIR WOMEN'S GROUPS

AND CHURCHES -- HOW CAN

THEY GET INVOLVED?

GO TO "TH thecall.com AND

REGISTER.

WE'RE GOING TO CRY OUT FOR

THE NEXT GENERATION.

AND IF MEN WANT TO JOIN

THEIR LIVES, THEY CAN.

I WANT MEN AND WOMEN TO

LOVE ONE ANOTHER, NOT TO

DIVIDE.

Wendy: THAT IS GOOD

TO KNOW, MEN ARE WELCOME.

YOU CAN FIND OUT HOW TO

REGISTER FOR AWAKEN THE

DAWN AND RISE UP BY GOING

TO cbn.com.

GO RIGHT NOW AND REGISTER.

> GEORGE, I CAN'T WAIT

FOR THE EVENT.

OCTOBER 9th, IF YOU CAN

MAKE IT TO WASHINGTON,

D.C., BE SURE TO BE THERE.

WE'RE GOING TO BE PRAYING

FOR THIS MAKES.

GEORGE?

George: ABSOLUTELY.

THE ROLE THAT FOLKS LIKE

YOU PLAY, POWERFUL.

> FOLKS, UP NEXT, BE

PREPARED TO BE INSPIRED.

HE IS A SINGER AND A

PREACHER, BUT WHEN CANCER

ATTACKED HIS TONGUE, HE

TURNED INTO A FIGHTER.

Wendy: NOW FOR A

LITTLE BIT OF GOOD NEWS,

ALTHOUGH WE HAVE HAD SOME

GOOD NEWS --

George: TALIA WEISS

TELLS US ABOUT A

CALIFORNIA PASTOR WHO IS

NOT LETTING HIS BATTLE

WITH TONGUE CANCER STOP

HIM FROM PREACHING THE

GOSPEL.

*

ANYONE WHO HAS BATTLED

CANCER OR WATCHED A LOVED

ONE FIGHT KNOWS HOW

DEVASTATING IT CAN BE.

BUT ONE MAN IS NOT LETTING

HIS BATTLE WITH TONGUE

CANCER STOPPING HIM FROM

PREACHING AND SINGING

ABOUT JESUS.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD CAN

GIVE YOU A NEW SONG FOR A

NEW SEASON.

AND THIS NEXT SONG THAT

WE'RE ABOUT TO SING IS A

SONG I WROTE JUST OVER A

YEAR AGO.

WHEN I WROTE IT, I DIDN'T

KNOW WHO IT WAS FOR.

AND THEN I GOT DIAGNOSED

WITH CANCER.

AND THE CANCER BEGAN TO

LEAK A CHEMICAL IN MY BODY

TO THE POINT THAT MY BODY

SHUT DOWN.

Reporter: BOUND TO A

WHEELCHAIR, PASTOR JASON

DAVID WAS TOLD HE MIGHT

NEVER WALK AGAIN.

DESPITE SURGERIES, CHEMO,

AND RADIATION, HE LOST 60%

OF HIS TONGUE.

DOCTORS COULD NOT PROMISE

HIM THAT HE WOULD SING OR

ANYONE TALK AGAIN.

*

* YOU ARE GREATER THAN

THESE WALLS ARE CIRCLING *

Reporter: BUT AFTER A

TOUGH YEAR, HE IS BACK IN

CHURCH, PREACHING ABOUT

GOD'S FAITHFULNESS AND

INSPIRING MILLIONS.

HE STOOD BEFORE BONITA

VALLEY CHURCH IN

CALIFORNIA, TO SING A SONG

GOD GAVE HIM WHILE HE WAS

FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE.

THE BEST PART IS HOW

MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE

CURRENTLY FIGHTING CANCER

HAVE REACHED OUT.

I'VE GOTTEN TO PERSONALLY

TALK WITH THEM.

AND THEY FOUND HOPE OR

ENCOURAGEMENT OR HEALING

BECAUSE OF THAT SONG.

SOME OF THEM ARE SINGING

THAT SONG IN A HOSPITAL TO

A LOVED ONE WHO IS IN A

HOSPITAL BED.

BUT MY FAVORITE STORIES

HAVE BEEN PEOPLE WHO HAVE

BEEN FIGHTING CANCER, AND

BECAUSE OF CANCER, THEY

EITHER QUIT PAINTING OR

THEY QUIT SINGING, OR THEY

QUIT PLAYING PIANO.

AND THEN THEY SAW THIS

STORY AND THEY SAW WHAT

GOD HAS DONE THROUGH THIS

SONG, AND THEY DECIDED,

I'M GOING TO PAINT AGAIN,

I'M GOING TO SING AGAIN,

I'M GOING TO DREAM AGAIN,

I'M GOING TO HOPE AGAIN.

* WATCH THESE WALLS START

CRUMBLING *

* WATCH THESE WALLS START

CRUMBLING DOWN, DOWN,

DOWN *

Reporter: PEOPLE IN

AT LEAST 15 COUNTRIES ARE

NOW SINGING THAT SONG.

IT IS BEING TRANSLATED

INTO CHINESE, SWEDISH,

TAGALOG, AND SPANISH.

THAT'S CBN GOOD NEWS.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, MAKE TIME

TO SPREAD A LITTLE BIT OF

GOOD NEWS.

Wendy: INDEED, WOW,

THAT WAS GOOD NEWS.

YOU CAN SHARE THE GOOD

NEWS WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND

FAMILY BY POSTING THIS

STORY ON YOUR Facebook

PAGE.

YOU CAN FIND IT AT OUR

Facebook PAGE,

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS,"

AND THAT'S AT

cbnnews.com.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

George: AND FINALLY

ON THIS SHOW THIS WEEK,

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

BRINGING HELP AND HEALING

TO A REMOTE PATIENT

COMMUNITY.

Wendy: I'VE BEEN IN

HAITI.

George: AND I HAVE.

I THINK IT IS CALLED

MEDANTALE.

Wendy: IT IS A POOR

VILLAGE.

AND "OPERATION BLESSING"

BROUGHT A PROGRAM THERE

THAT TEACHES HYGIENE AND

DISEASE PREVENTION TO THE

VILLAGE.

AND THE WORKERS HELP

EXPECTING MOTHERS DELIVER

THEIR BABIES.

SO THERE IS A LOT GOING ON

THERE.

Gord: FOLKS George: FOLKS, WE

HAVE TAKEN YOU AROUND THE

WORLD FOR INSPIRING

STORIES.

Wendy: ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE WITH GOD.

IF YOU NEED HELP TODAY,

CALL ON THE NAME OF JESUS.

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, FROM ALL

OF US HERE,
