"NEWSWATCH."

I EFREM GRAHAM.

TROPICAL STORM HARVEY

CONTINUES TO RA RATTLE

SOUTHEAST TEXAS.

THE U.S. ARMY CORPS OF

ENGINEERS IS EXPECTED TO

RELEASE WATER FROM TWO

RESERVOIRS IN AN TEMP ATTEMPT

TO PROTECT DOWNTOWN

HOUSTON.

Reporter: HARVEY HAS

HOUSTON UNDER SIEGE.

TORRENTIAL RAINS ARE

ENGULFING THE CITY AS

RISING WATER CHASES

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE TO

HIGHER GROUND.

RESCUES CONTINUED

OVERNIGHT.

DRAMATIC MOMENTS LIKE THIS

ONE CAUGHT ON CAMERA.

WE NEED HELP IN FIFTH

WARD.

WE NEED PEOPLE HERE TO

EVACUATE PEOPLE.

GET PEOPLE HERE NOW BEFORE

THEY DIE.

Reporter: WITH MORE

THAN 56,000 CALLS IN LESS

THAN 24 HOURS, THE 9-1-1

SYSTEM IS BEING OVERRUN.

MANY PEOPLE SAY THEY CAN'T

EVEN GET THROUGH.

THE GEOGRAPHY IS A BIG

PART OF THE PROBLEM.

AND FORCED PEOPLE ON TO

THE STREETS, THAN INTO

BIUS.

THE THIS RUNS THROUGH THE

MIDDLE OF HOUSTON AND

LOOKS LIKE THIS, 15 FEET

OVER FLOOD STAGE, A LEVEL

NEVER SEE BEFORE.

THE STORM IS NOT LETTING

UP.

FORECASTERS SAY SOME AREAS

COULD SEE AS MUCH AS

50 INCHES BEFORE IT

PASSES.

AND IT IS RARE, TO SAY THE

LEAST.

PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETING:

"NOW EXPERTS ARE CALLING

HARVEY A ONCE IN 500 YEAR

FLOOD.

WE HAVE AN ALL-OUT EFFORT

GOING ON AND GOING WELL."

FIRST RESPONDERS ARE

WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK,

TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH ALL

OF THE CRIES FOR HELP.

THOSE RESCUED OFTEN LEFT

WITH NOTHING.

THE MEMORIES ARE TAKEN

AWAY BY SOMETHING THAT YOU

DON'T EXPECT.

I MEAN, IT IS JUST

MATERIALISTIC STUFF.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP MONITORED THE

SITUATION FROM CAMP DAVID

OVER THE WEEKEND.

HE IS READY TO TRAVEL TO

TEXAS AS SOON AS HE CAN

WITHOUT CAUSING

DISCUSSION.

THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS THE

TRIP WILL HAPPEN ON

TUESDAY.

JEJENNA BROWDER, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE HURRICANE

KNOWN AS HARVEY MAY NOW

JUST BE A TROPICAL STORM,

BUT IT IS STILL A DEADLY

SITUATION FOR MOST OF

TEXAS.

IT HAS CLAIMED AT LEAST

TWO LIVES AND CONTINUES TO

POUND THE STATE WITH HEAVY

RAIN AND STRONG WINDS.

ERIC GONZALES HAS BEEN

TRACKING THE STORM ON THE

GROUND IN TEXAS.

*

Reporter: WITH NO

ELECTRICITY, MEMBERS OF

ROCK CITY CHURCH IN FLOWER

BLUFF, TEXAS, STILL

GATHERED FOR SUNDAY'S

SERVICE.

THEY USED THE POWER OF GOD

TO LIGHTEN UP THEIR HEARTS

AND MINDS, AND TURN TO GOD

FOR HELP DURING THIS

TRYING TIME.

THE WORK NEVER STOPS

FOR US AS CHRISTIANS.

WE KNOW THAT.

WE JUST GET LEANER AND

MEANER, AND WE SHINE

BRIGHTER AND BRIGHTER IN A

DARK WORLD.

Reporter: IT IS THAT

FAITH OF CHRIST THAT

BROUGHT MANY LITERALLY OUT

OF THE STORM.

MY CHURCH IS BARELY

STANDING ANYMORE.

THE CHURCH GOT DEMOLISHED.

OUR HIGH SCHOOL, YOU KNOW,

TOOK A PRETTY GOOD

BEATING.

I'M ACTUALLY HEADED BACK

OVER THERE.

I'M HEADED TO ROCKPORT

RIGHT NOW TO SEE IF WE

CAN'T HELP OUT A LITTLE

MORE.

Reporter: LATE FRIDAY

EVENING, THE CATEGORY 4

HURRICANE SLAMMED INTO THE

TEXAS COASTLINE HARD,

BRINGING 130 MILE-AN-HOUR

WINDS, COMBINED WITH

SHEETS OF RAIN TO CITIES

LIKE ROCKPORT, A FEW MILES

NORTH OF CORPUS CHRISTI,

WHERE RESIDENTS ARE FORCED

TO BOIL THEIR WATER BEFORE

DRINKING IT.

IT DIDN'T GET REAL

UNTIL THE WINDS STARTED

HOWLING, AND THEN YOU KIND

OF SIT THERE AND GO, THIS

IS REALLY HAPPENING.

THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN

DO.

SO WE HUDDLED UP IN THE

LIVING ROOM AND HUNKERED

DOWN AND JUST SAID SOME

PRAYERS.

LUCKILY EVERYTHING HELD UP

ON OUR END.

Reporter: BUT NOT FOR

EVERYONE.

THE STORM HAS TAKEN LIVES,

AND FLIPPED BOATS AS IF

THEY WERE TOYS, AND LEFT A

PATH OF DESTRUCTION.

ALTHOUGH HARVEY QUICKLY

LOST STEAM AS IT MADE LAND

FORM, IT STALLED, BRINGING

DOZENS OF TORNADOES IN AND

AROUND HOUSTON.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

YOU GET TOO MUCH WATER TOO

FAST.

THIS IS THE FREEWAY BEHIND

ME.

YES, A FREEWAY.

IT'S AT LEAST 10 FEET OF

WATER.

HOUSTON POLICE SAY AT

LEAST ONE WOMAN DIED AFTER

SHE TRIED TO GET OUT OF

HER CAR TOO FAST, DUE TO

THE RISING FLOODWATERS,

AND DROWNED.

THEY ARE SHARING THE

LOVE OF JESUS.

Reporter: RELEASE IS

ON THE WAY.

CBN'S OWN "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS GEARING UP,

TALKING AND PRAYING WITH

LOCAL PASTORS, ON WHERE TO

BRING FOOD AND OTHER NON

PERISHABLES.

I EQUIPMENT IS STAGED

IN BEAUMONT, TEXAS, JUST A

FEW HOURS AWAY.

AND "OPERATION BLESSING"

WILL BE MOVING IN.

Efrem: THAT WAS ERIC

GONZALES REPORTING.

RIGHT NOW THE MODE HAS

SWITCHED FROM SURVIVING

THE HURRICANE TO PROVIDING

RELIEF TO THOSE WHO NEED

IT.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEARN

MORE ABOUT HELPING THOSE

IMPACTED BY THE HURRICANE,

SIMPLY VISIT ob.org.

> NORTH KOREA IS BACK TO

CARRYING OUT ITS BALLISTIC

MISSILE TEST.

FRIDAY NIGHT THE REGIME

LAUNCHED THREE MISSILES.

TWO FLEW FOR ABOUT

150 MILES, AND THE OTHER

REPORTEDLY BLEW UP.

THEY DID NOT THREATEN THE

U.S. OR GUAM, BUT THEY

COULD STRIKE U.S. MILITARY

BASES IN SOUTH KOREA.

REX TILLERSON SAYS

REGARDLESS OF THE ACTUAL

THREAT, THE TESTS ARE

UNACCEPTABLE.

THE FIRING OF ANY

BALLISTIC MISSILE IS A

VIOLATION OF THE U.N.

COUNCIL'S RESOLUTIONS.

WE VIEW IT AS A

PROVOCATIVE ACT AGAINST

THE UNITED STATES AND OUR

ALLIES.

WE CONTINUE TO WANT THE

KIM REGIME TO UNDERSTAND

THERE IS A DIFFERENT PATH

THAT HE CAN CHOOSE.

THE INTERNATIONAL

COMMUNITY HAS BEEN QUITE

CLEAR WITH THE UNANIMOUS

15 TO NOTHING RESOLUTION,

IMPOSING THE MOST

STRINGENT SANCTIONS EVERY

TO BE IMPOSED ON NORTH

KOREA.

Efrem: THE TESTS

COINCIDE WITH U.S. AND

SOUTH KOREAN MILITARY

EXERCISES IN THE SOUTH.

> PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

STILL TAKING HITS FOR

PARDONING SHERIFF JOE

ARPAIO LATE FRIDAY NIGHT.

THE PRESIDENT'S LATEST

CRITICISM COMES FROM VICE

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN DEN.

BIDEN.

HE WROTE: "THE PRESIDENT'S

CONTEMPT FOR THE U.S.

CONSTITUTION AND

WILLINGNESS TO DIVIDE THIS

NATION KNOWS NO BONDS.

NOW HE HAS PARDONED A LAW

ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL WHO

TERRORIZED THE LATINO

COMMUNITY."

THE PRESIDENT CONTINUES TO

RECEIVE BACKLASH FROM HIS

COMMENTS ON THE EVENTS IN

CHARLOTTESVILLE AS WELL.

> THE PRESIDENT'S TEAM

HAS HELD TALKS IN BOTH TEL

AVIV AND RAMALLAH.

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

ADVISORS, JARED KUSHNER

AND JASON GREENBLAT MET

WITH BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

AND MAHMOUD ABBAS.

BUT THEY DID NOT MINS THAT MENTION

THAT THE PEACE PLAN WOULD

INCLUDE WHAT IS CALLED A

TWO-STATE SOLUTION.

NOT MENTIONING IT RAISES

DOUBTS THAT THE IDEA WILL

BE ON THE TABLE IN FUTURE

DISCUSSIONS.

AMERICANS SAY IT IS

ULTIMATELY UP TO THE

ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS

TO MAKE PEACE AND NOT THE

U.S.

> PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

PRESSING AHEAD WITH THE

ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN PEACE

PROCESS BUT VISITING U.S.

CONGRESSMEN SAY THE

SITUATION ON THE GROUND IS

NOT WHAT IT SEEMS.

JULIE STAAL IS ON THIS

STORY.

Julie: ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU MET WITH TRUMP

ADVISORS JARED KUSHNER AND

JASON GREENBLAT IN TEL

AVIV.

WE HAVE A LOT OF THINGS

TO TALK ABOUT.

HOW TO ADVANCE PEACE,

STABILITY, AND SECURITY IN

OUR REGION.

AND I THINK ALL OF THEM

ARE WITHIN OUR REACH.

THE PRESIDENT IS VERY

COMMITTED TO ACHIEVING A

SOLUTION HERE THAT WILL BE

ABLE TO BRING PROSPERITY

AND PEACE TO ALL PEOPLE IN

THIS AREA.

Julie: WHILE

NETANYAHU'S OFFICE

DESCRIBED THE TALKS AS

CONSTRUCTIVE AND

SUBSTANTIVE, U.S.

CONGRESSMAN MAX THORNBERRY

TOLD CBN NEWS THE U.S. MAY

NEED TO RE-THINK THE

SOLUTION.

THE KEY FUNDAMENTAL

POINT IS THAT WHAT WE HAVE

ALWAYS BELIEVED, THAT

THERE HAS TO BE A

TWO-STATE SOLUTION, THAT

ISRAEL CAN BE MORE SECURE

IF IT TRADES OFF SOME

LAND, THAT WOULD BECOME A

PALESTINIAN STATE -- THOSE

ASSUMPTIONS ARE REALLY IN

DOUBT, ARE BEING

QUESTIONED.

AND SOME OF THE QUESTIONS

ARE: WHAT'S IN THE BEST

INTERESTS OF THE PEOPLE?

Julie: PROTESTING

PALESTINIANS EXPRESS THEIR

DISPLEASURE AHEAD OF OF

KUSHNER'S MEETING WITH

MAHMOUD ABBAS.

WE ARE TOTAL THE

UNHAPPY THAT THIS AMERICAN

ADMINISTRATION HAS

CONDUCTED NO PRESSURE ON

ISRAEL TO STOP CERTAIN

ACTIVITIES.

Julie: JEWISH

COMMUNITIES IN JUDEA AND

SAMARIA REMAIN ONE OF THE

THORNIEST ISSUES IN THE

ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN

DISPUTE.

SENATOR JAMES LANGFORD

TOLD CBN NEWS THAT

WORLDWIDE PERCEPTION OF

GROWTH IN THE REGION IS

INACCURATE.

A LOT OF THE GROWTH IS

JUST POPULATION GROWTH.

WHAT SOME PEOPLE CALL

SETTLEMENTS IS JUST NEW

PEOPLE BORN AND NEW HOUSES

NEED TO BE BUILT.

THERE ARE A LOT OF THOSE

NEW NEIGHBORHOODS THAT ARE

COMING UP, JUST TO SUPPORT

THE POPULATION OF SO MUCH

JEWS MOVING FROM AROUND

THE WORLD, TO ISRAEL, AS

WELL AS THOSE WHO ARE BORN

MERE.

Julie: AND LANGFORD

SAYS THERE IS MORE THAT

YOU DON'T SEE IN THE

MEDIA.

JUST A COUPLE YEARS

SINCE I'VE BEEN IN THE

SAMARIA AREA, FOR

INSTANCE, AND THERE HAS

BEEN A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT

OF GROWTH IN FACTORIES AND

DEVELOPMENT.

MANY OF THOSE FACTORIES

POPPING UP HAVE ISRAELIS

AND PALESTINIANS WORKING

TOGETHER SIDE BY SIDE.

Julie: THORNBERRY

HOPES THERE IS CHANGE

AHEAD.

IF WE ARE CREATIVE AND

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX,

MAYBE, THERE ARE NEW

POSSIBILITIES, AND THAT'S

IN EVERYBODY'S BEST

INTERESTS, ESPECIALLY THE

PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN ISRAEL

AND THE WEST BANK AREA.

Julie: BOTH

CONGRESSMEN MADE IT CLEAR

IT IS ULTIMATELY UP TO THE

ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS

TO MAKE PEACE, NOT THE

U.S.

JULIE STAAL, CBN NEWS,

Efrem: WELL, IT IS

THE END OF AUGUST, AND

MANY HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES

ARE HEADING OFF TO COLLEGE

FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME.

BUT WHAT THEY LEARN WHEN

THEY GET THERE MAY ALARM

THEIR PARENTS.

EMILY JONES HAS MORE.

[YELLING]

Reporter: FAITH

SPACES, TRIGGER WARNINGS,

WELCOME TO COLLEGE LIFE IN

AMERICA.

THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR IS

HERE, AND STUDENTS ARE

PACKING UP AND LEAVING

HOME, EXPECTING TO LEARN

ABOUT THE REAL WORLD.

EXCEPT WHEN THEY GET

THERE, THEY ARE OFTENTIMES

MET WITH AN ATMOSPHERE

THAT FEELS MORE LIKE A

DAYCARE INSTEAD OF AN

INSTITUTE OF HIGHER

LEARNING.

INSTEAD OF OPENLY DEBATING

CHALLENGING IDEAS,

STUDENTS ARE TURNING TO

INTELLECTUAL SAFE SPACES

OR TRIGGER WARNINGS TO

AVOID HEARING, SEEING, OR

READING AN ANYTHING THEY

DISAGREE WITH.

WE ASKED COLLEGE STUDENTS

WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT

THESE TRENDS.

RESPONSES RANGED FROM

SUPPORTIVE TO DISGUSTED.

WE WANT PEOPLE TO FEEL

COMFORTABLE, AND WE WANT

THEM TO THINK, PEOPLE ARE

MAKING ME UPSET, PEOPLE

ARE REALLY DISAGREEING

WITH WHAT I BELIEVE IN.

I DON'T THINK IT IS A

GOOD IDEA.

Reporter: STUDENTS

WHO TAKE SAFE SPACES AND

TRIGGER WARNINGS TO THE

EXTREME ARE WILLING TO

PROTEST, HARASS, AND EVEN

BAR SPEAKERS THEY DON'T

LIKE FROM CAMPUS.

TAKE BEN SHAPPIR PEE SHAPIRO FOR

EXAMPLE.

HE TESTIFIED THIS GROWING

SAFE SPACE AREA.

ALL OF OUR STUDENTS

SHALL BE JUDGED ON THEIR

MERITS AND NOT ON THEIR

FAITH OR COLOR.

Reporter: DR. EVERETT

PIPER WRITES ABOUT IT IN

HIS NEW BACK, "NOT A

DAYCARE," THE DEVASTATING

CONSEQUENCES OF ABD DANG ABANDONING

TRUTH.

Efrem: JOINING ME IS

DR. EVERETT PIPER, AND

AUTHOR OF "FONOT A DAYCARE."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BEING HERE.

MY PLEASURE.

Efrem: YOU GIVE SOME

EXAMPLES IN YOUR BOOK WITH

OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR,

ASKING FOR TIME OFF AFTER

THIS YEAR'S ELECTION, AND

THE LIST GOES ON AND ON.

RICHARD WEARVER WROTE A

BOOK.

AND WHAT WE'RE SEEING IS

FRANKLY BARACK OBAMA'S

PASTOR WAS RIGHT, THE

CHICKENS ARE COMING HOME

TO LOOSEST.

ROOST.

WE'VE TAUGHT TERRIBLE

IDEAS, SELF-ABSORPTION AND

NARCISSISM, FOR DECADES,

AND WHY ARE WE SURPRISED

TO SEE SELF-AB SORD ANDABSORBED AND

NARCISSISTIC STUDENTS.

Efrem: AS A BLACK MAN

MYSELF, WHEN I THINK ABOUT

CIVIL RIGHTS, I THINK

ABOUT THE STRUGGLE OF MY

ANCESTORS WHO, I MEAN,

WERE TORTURED, BEATEN, YOU

NAME IT.

DO YOU THINK THE STUDENTS

ARE A BIT CONFUSED AT WHAT

THE CIVIL RIGHTS FIGHT

LOOKS LIKE?

ABSOLUTELY.

IN OTHER WORDS, YOU CAN'T

HAVE JUSTICE WITHOUT A

JUDGE.

AND YOU CAN'T HAVE A BOOK

WITHOUT AN AUTHOR.

YOU CAN'T HAVE A PAINTING

WITHOUT A PAINTER.

THE STUDENTS HAVE BEEN

TAUGHT IT DOESN'T MATTER

WHAT YOU BELIEVE, AS LONG

AS IT WORKS FOR YOU.

THEY HAVE BEEN TAUGHT THAT

THEY CREATE EVERYTHING.

THERE IS NO AUTHOR, THERE

IS NO PAINTER, THERE IS NO

WRITER, AND THERE IS NO

DEFINER, NO DEFINITION OF

TRUTH, OTHER THAN WHAT

THEY DECIDE.

IT'S NARCISSISM TO THE

MAX.

THE IMAGE OF THEIR I

IPHONES, THEIR SOCIAL

MEDIA, AND IF YOU DON'T

AGREE WITH THEIR

CONCLUSIONS, YOU ARE A

BIGOT.

YOU'RE A HATER.

YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.

IT'S IDIOLOGICAL FASCISM.

AND THEY WILL CRUSH YOU

BECAUSE YOU DARE TO BE

DIFFERENT.

Efrem: LET'S TALK

ABOUT SAFE SPACES.

IS THERE ANY A REASON FOR

THESE SPACES?

NO.

C.S. LEWIS TOLD US THAT

THE GREAT LION AZLON IS

NOT SAFE, BUT HE IS GOOD.

WELL, LET'S PARAPHRASE

THAT AND SUGGEST THIS.

THE GREAT LION OF THE

LIABLE ARTS, THE

UNIVERSITY, THE COLLEGE,

THE GREAT LION OF THE

IVORY TOWER IS NOT

SUPPOSED TO BE SAFE; IT'S

SUPPOSED TO BE GOOD.

THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN SAFE EDUCATION AND

GOOD EDUCATION.

I WOULD ARGUE THE LATTER

IS WHAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO

BE.

SAFE EDUCATION IS AN

OXYMORON.

Efrem: I AGREE WITH

YOU THERE.

WHAT ARE SOME SOLUTIONS TO

CREATE REAL CHANGE AND TO

GET UNIVERSITIES BACK ON

TRACK?

THE SUBTITLE TO MY BOOK

IS THE DEVASTATING

CONSEQUENCES OF ABANDONING

WHAT?

THE TRUTH.

JESUS TOLD US, YOU SHALL

KNOW THE TRUTH, AND TRUTH

SHALL SET YOU FREE.

THE TRUTH SETS YOU FREE.

ALL OF THE DISPATRIOTS OF DESPERATES OF

HISTORY HAD OPINIONS AND

IT DIDN'T SIT WELL.

JESUS SAYS, THERE IS NO

FREEDOM WITHOUT THE

CONTEXT OF THOSE SELF-

SELF-EVIDENT TRUTHS

ESPOUSED TO US BY OUR

CREATOR.

THAT NEETS NEEDS TO B NEEDS TO BE THE GOAL

OF THE ACADEMY, NOT JUST

PROPPING UP YOUR OPINION

OR MINE.

Efrem: I HAVE A SON

ABOUT TO GO TO COLLEGE FOR

THE FIRST TIME, AND WHAT

ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR

STUDENTS ABOUT STANDING ON

THEIR CHRISTIAN BELIEFS?

YOU AND YOUR SON SHOULD

PULL ASIDE THE COLLEGE

PRESIDENT BEFORE YOU

CHOOSE TO PAY BEFORE YOU

GO THERE.

AND IF HE WON'T MEET WITH

YOU, DON'T GO THERE.

PULL THE PRESIDENT ASIDE

AND ASK HIM TWO QUESTIONS:

WHAT IS YOUR VIEW OF

SCRIPTURE AND WHAT'S YOUR

VIEW OF THE TRUTH?

IS TRUTH A REVELATION OF

GOD.

IF HE SAYS THAT, GO THERE.

IF HE DOESN'T, DON'T WASTE

YOUR MONEY.

Efrem: THAT IS SOME

GREAT ADVICE.

AUTHOR OF "NOT A DAYCARE,"

Efrem: REGENT

UNIVERSITY WANTS ITS

STUDENTS TO BECOME

CHRISTIAN LEADERS AND

CHANGE THE WORLD.

WELL, NOW THAT CHALLENGE

WILL REACH THE ATHLETIC

FIELD AS WELL.

THE SCHOOL'S NEW ATHLETIC

PROGRAM INCLUDES SPORTS,

RANGING FROM TRACK AND

FIELD TO CHEERLEADING.

EMILY JONES IS BACK TO

EXPLAIN HOW THE TEAMS WILL

CARRY A BOLD NEW NAME AS

WELL.

[CHEERING]

Reporter: IT WAS A

HISTORIC CELEBRATION AS

REGENT UNIVERSITY DEBUTED

ITS NEW ATHLETIC PROGRAM

AND TEAM NAME, "THE REGENT

ROYALS."

I'M VERY EXCITED.

WE'RE THE FIRST REGENT

CHEERLEADING TEAM.

Reporter: ATHLETIC

DIRECTOR ROGER CHEEKS

POINTED OUT "REGENT

ROYALS" IS MORE THAN A

CATCHY NAME.

IT COMES STRAIGHT OUT OF

THE BIBLE.

1 PETER 2 AND 9.

WE ARE GOD'S PEOPLE AND WE

REALLY SEE THE HAND OF GOD

IN THE ATHLETIC PROGRAM.

Reporter: THIS FALL

STUDENTS WILL COMPETE IN

SOCCER, CROSS-COUNTRY,

VOLLEYBALL AND

CHEERLEADING, BUT THESE

SPORTS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN

POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE HARD

WORK OF THE TRACK ATHLETES

WHO PIONEERED THE PROGRAM

EARLY LAST YEAR.

THERE WAS NATIONAL

COMPETITIONS AND TEAMWORK.

THEY HAD THE MINDSET

AND THE HEARTS OF THE

FAMILY AND SERVICEHOOD,

AND THEY WERE HUMBLED TO

BE ABLE TO REPRESENT THE

UNIVERSITY.

Reporter: THAT SAME

SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE AND

PERSEVERANCE WILL BE THE

GOAL FOR FUTURE ATHLETES

AS THE PROGRAM EXPANDS.

GO REGENT!

WE TRAIN CHRISTIAN

LEADERS TO CHANGE THE

WORLD.

WHEN WE BROUGHT ON

AMLETICS, IATHLETICS, IT IS JUST

ANOTHER STREAM OF SOCIETY

TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

Reporter: IT MAY HAVE

SMALL BEGINNINGS, BUT IT

HAS A BIG FUTURE AS

STUDENTS TRAIN TO GLORIFY

Efrem: IT IS TIME FOR

YOUR MONDAY MOTIVATION,

REMEMBER THIS: WHILE YOU

SLEEP AND SLUMBER AND

MISALARMS, GOD IS ALWAYS

ON SOMETIME.

HE IS NEVER LATE OR EARLY.

BE ENCOURAGED BECAUSE

WHILE YOU WAIT FOR YOUR

PRAYERS TO BE ANSWERED,

GOD IS BORKING FOR YOU. WORKING FOR YOU.

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS," WE

MOST UNREACHED PLACES ON

EARTH.

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.

NOW HE IS CALLING FOR

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

NATASHA 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
