Efrem: THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

THE WEATHER IN TEXAS IS

IMPROVING JUST A BIT, BUT

AUTHORITIES THERE SAY THE

HUMAN TOLL FROM HARVEY

CONTINUES TO CLIMB.

AT LEAST 18 ARE DEAD IN

THE HOUSTON AREA, AND MORE

THAN 17,000 HAVE SOUGHT

REFUGE IN SHELTERS.

HEATHER SELLS HAS MORE.

Heather: THE RAIN

FROM HARVEY, OVER

50 INCHES IN SOME SPOTS,

MAKES IT THE HEAVIEST

TROPICAL DOWNPOUR IN THE

HISTORY OF THE UNITED

NATIONS.

WHILE THE DOWNPOUR IN

HOUSTON IS EXPECTED TO END

SOON, THE FLOODWATERS ARE

STILL RISING.

IT IS ALL THE WAY UP TO

THE ROOF, GUYS.

I HATE TO THINK THERE ARE

PEOPLE IN THESE HOUSES.

Heather: THE OFFICIAL

TALLY OF RESCUES RIGHT NOW

IS 13,000, BUT THE ACTUAL

NUMBER IS LIKELY MUCH

HIGHER.

AND STILL MORE THAN 1,000

IN HOUSTON ARE DESPERATELY

WAITING FOR HELP.

THIS WOMAN WAS STRANDED IN

HER CAR FOR TWO DAYS.

ALL I CAN SAY IS THERE

ARE ANGELS OUT HERE.

DON'T GIVE UP ON US.

SEEK THE HIGHER GROUND.

WE WILL GET TO YOU.

Heather: THE CITY OF

HOUSTON COVERS ABOUT

10,000 SQUARE MILES.

IT IS SLIGHTLY BIGGER THAN

NEW JERSEY, AND MAKES

RESCUE OPERATIONS A

DAUNTING TASK.

THIS HOUSTON POLICE

OFFICER, STEVE PEREZ,

DROWNED IN THE FLOODWATERS

TRYING TO HELP OTHERS.

IT WAS TOO TREACHEROUS

TO GO UNDER AND LOOK FOR

HIM.

Heather: TORRENTIAL

RAINS, SIX TO 12 INCHES

ARE EXPECTED EAST OF

HOUSTON INTO, LOUISIANA.

HOUSTON ITSELF SHOULD

RECEIVE LESS THAN TWO TO

THREE MORE INCHES, BUT

RISING FLOODWATERS ARE NOW

THE CONCERN.

ESPECIALLY AFTER TWO

RESERVOIR DAMS BEGAN TO

OVERFLOW ON TUESDAY.

OFFICIALS ARE WATCHING

BRIDGES AND ROADS AND

PIPES LINEPIPELINES IN THE PATH OF

THE FLUTE WATERS.

FLUTFLOODWATERS.HOUSTON OPENED TWO MEGA

SHELTERS ON TUESDAY AND

HAS ASKED FEMA MO MORE COTS

FOR OVER 2,000 PEOPLE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP VISITED

HOUSTON AND PROMISED TO

PROVIDE BILLIONS OF

DOLLARS IN DISASTER AID,

AND TALKED WITH STATE

OFFICIALS ABOUT THE

MAGNITUDE OF THE DISASTER.

President Trump: THIS

IS HISTORIC IN WHAT

HAPPENED, BUT IT HAPPENED

IN TEXAS, AND TEXAS CAN

HANDLE ANYTHING.

Heather: THE

PRESIDENT PLANS TO RETURN

TO THE REGION ON SATURDAY

AS IT WORKS TO RECOVER

FROM THIS HISTORIC NATURAL

DISASTER.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: AND AS YOU

JUST SAW, THE PRESIDENT

DID PAY A VISIT TO TEXAS

TO SURVEY THE ONGOING

DEVASTATION FROM HARVEY.

THE ONCE CATEGORY 4

HURRICANE CONTINUES TO

DROP LARGE AMOUNTS OF RAIN

ON THE FLOODED CITY OF

HOUSTON.

ERIC GONZALES IS ON THE

GROUND THERE, AND HE

VISITED A SHELTER, WHERE

EVACUEES ARE THANKFUL TO

BE ALIVE, BUT ARE WORRIED

ABOUT THEIR FUTURE.

Reporter: I'M HERE AT

THE GEORGE R. BROWN

CONVENTION CENTER IN

DOWNTOWN HOUSTON, WHERE

SOME 9,000 PEOPLE ARE

SEEKING SHELTER.

NO ONE WILL BE TURNED

AWAY, ACCORDING TO THE RED

CROSS, BUT PEOPLE HERE,

MANY WITH ONLY THE CLOTHES

ON THEIR BACKS, HAVE LOST

EVERYTHING, THEIR

PROPERTY, THEIR HOMES, AND

MANY DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE

THERE OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS

ARE.

I HAVE NEVER HAD IT

LIKE THIS.

I FEEL LIKE A HOMELESS

MAN, NOWHERE TO GO.

BUT, YOU KNOW, MY FAITH,

IT WON'T CHANGE.

Reporter: MINISTER

LARRY DANIEL RECENTLY

MOVED TO THE AREA WITH HIS

WIFE, RHONDA.

ON SUNDAY, AS FLOODWATERS

ROSE, SHE ROWSHED T RUSHED TO A

NEARBY HOSPITAL WHERE HER

FRIEND HAD BEEN TAKEN.

WHILE SHE WAS GONE, HE WAS

FORCED TO VA EVACUATE THEIR

MOBILE HOME, AND NOW HE

HAS NO IDEA WHERE SHE IS.

I HAVEN'T HEARD BACK

FROM HER.

Reporter: HE SAYS

RIGHT NOW HE IS BROKEN BUT

WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP HIS

FAITH.

WHEN I NEED IT, IT

SHOWS.

SO GOD IS PROVIDING.

IT HAPPENED SO QUICK.

WITHIN A FEW HOURS IT WAS,

LIKE, THREE FEET IN THERE.

AND SO I JUST GRABBED

WHATEVER I COULD.

Reporter: SEAN PALMER

SAYS HE IS THANKFUL FOR A

MAN WHO CAME BY HIS

FLOODED HOME IN A KAYAKER

AND SAVED HIM.

HE SAVED ME.

WHAT PUT HIM OUT THERE IS

HE WANTED TO HELP PEOPLE.

IF THE HOLY SPIRIT DIDN'T

MOVE HIS HEART, I DONT

KNOW WHAT WOULD HAVE

HAPPENED TO ME.

Reporter: WE HEARD

STORY AFTER STORY ABOUT

HOW GOD MOVED ORDINARY

PEOPLE TO STEP IN AND HELP

SAVE LIVES.

THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKED

LIKE OUTSIDE OF HOUSTON'S

LAKEWOOD CHURCH.

EVERYTHING AROUND US

WAS FLOODED.

ALL OF THE HIGHWAYS.

IT WAS JUST DANGEROUS TO

TRY TO IN ANY WAY, NUMBER

ONE, GET VOLUNTEERS HERE,

AND OTHER PEOPLE JUST

COULDN'T REACH THE CHURCH.

Reporter: HOWEVER,

SOME MEDIA OUTLETS

CRITICIZED LAKEWOOD FOR NO

IMMEDIATELY WELCOMING

THOSE FORCED FROM THEIR

HOMES.

WE SAID, LET US HELP.

WE'LL DO ANYTHING WE CAN

TO HELP.

WE'RE NOT HERE JUST FOR

THIS STAGE.

WE'RE HERE TO HELP REBUILD

AND CLEANUP, AND SO WE'RE

HERE FOR THE LONG HAUL.

DURING THAT WINDOW WHERE

WE WERE BE SIEGED, WE JUST

COULDN'T MOVE AND IT WAS

DANGEROUS TO MOVE.

Efrem: THAT WAS ERIC

GONZALES REPORTING.

AND LAKEWOOD IS NOW

COLLECTING DONATIONS, AND

EVACUEES ARE STAYING AT

THE CHURCH AS WELL.

> TRANSGENDER TROOPS CAN

CONTINUE SERVING IN THE

MILITARY FOR NOW.

EARLIER THIS MONTH,

PRESIDENT TRUMP REVERSED

AN OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

POLICY THAT ALLOWS

TRANSGENDERS IN THE

MILITARY.

SECRETARY OF DEFENSE JIM

MATTIS SAYS HE'LL WAIT FOR

THE RESULTS OF A STUDY

BEFORE IMPLEMENTING THE

NEW ORDER.

THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY

SERVING SHOULD BE

EVALUATED BASED ON THEIR

ABILITY TO DEPLOY TO WAR

ZONES.

IT ALSO SAID THE MILITARY

WILL NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL

TREATMENT FOR GENDER

DISPHORIA.

> MANY AMERICANS THINK

THE SUPREME COURT, IN THE

1960s, THREW GOD OUT OF

PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS

FROM ONE OF THE LARGEST

SCHOOL BIBLE CLUBS IN THE

COUNTRY, AS LONG AS

STUDENTS LEAVE THE

ACTIVITY, THEY HAVE EVERY

RIGHT TO SERVE GOD AND

STUDY HIS WORD RIGHT IN

THEIR OWN SCHOOLS.

Reporter: IN THIS ERA

THAT MANY CALL

POST-CHRISTIAN AMERICA,

LOTS OF KIDS ARE NOT GOING

TO DARKEN THE DOOR OF THE

CHURCH, BUT THEY ARE GOING

TO GO TO SCHOOL EVERY DAY.

THAT'S THE GENIUS OF

SCHOOL BIBLE CLUBS.

THAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING

FOR HUNDREDS OF STUDENTS

IN PENNSYLVANIA.

THE MORE ADULTS THAN

STUDENTS SHOWED UP FOR

THIS RECENT GATHERING

OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL TO PRAY

FOR THE BIBLE CLUB AND THE

KIDS AS THIS NEW SCHOOL

YEAR BEGINS.

THAT YOU WOULD BE IN IT

ALL, FOR ALL OF US.

Reporter: YOU MAY

THINK SEPARATION OF CHURCH

AND STATE MEANS YOU CAN'T

START A BIBLE CLUB IN YOUR

SCHOOL.

NOT SO.

TO START ONE, IT IS

EASY, BECAUSE THEY CAN'T

TELL YOU NO IN A PUBLIC

SCHOOL.

IT IS COMPLETELY

CONSTITUTIONAL.

THE PEOPLE WHO ARE AFRAID

WILL SAY NO UNTIL YOU

PROVE THEM THE FACTS AND

SHOW THEM IT IS

CONSTITUTIONAL.

THEY CAN'T TELL YOU NO AS

A PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENT.

ANY SCHOOL IS ABLE TO

HAVE A BIBLE CLUB.

IT IS A GOOD THING, TO

PREACH GOD'S WORD TO OTHER

STUDENTS.

THEY MAY NOT HAVE THE

ABILITY TO LEARN ABOUT GOD

ON THEIR OWN.

IT IS A FIRST AMENDMENT

RIGHT.

Reporter: THE REDBANK

BIBLE CLUB REPRESENTS

GOD'S TRUTH.

EVERY SCHOOL SHOULD

HAVE ONE.

IN A HURTING, DARK WORLD,

THE LIGHT SHINES BRIGHTLY.

I JUST PRAY FOR THESE

LEADERS, FOR THE STUDENTS

HERE, FATHER, AND THOSE

THAT AREN'T ABLE TO BE

HERE, THAT YOU EMPOWER

THEM.

Reporter: THIS NIGHT,

WHEN THE YOUNG AND OLD IN

NEW BETHLEHEM CAME TO PRAY

FOR THEIR SCHOOLS, A LARGE

CONSTITUENT OF STUDENTS

WERE ON HAND.

REDBANK'S SUCCESS HAS

TOUCHED OTHERS.

I CAME TO ONE OF THEIR

MEETINGS ONCE, AND I WAS

SO MOVED BY JUST ONE

MEETING, IT REALLY, REALLY

BOOSTED MY WANT TO HAVE A

BIBLE CLUB.

I THINK IT IS EXCITING

FOR ALL OF US TO GET TO

SHARE EXPERTISE AND

KNOWLEDGE AND REALLY

SPREAD THE MINISTRY.

Reporter: THE MAIN

MESSAGE FROM THESE

STUDENTS IS: TAKE A LEAP

OF FAITH AND REFRESH YOUR

OWN SCHOOL WITH A BIBLE

CLUB.

I FEEL LIKE IT WOULD

PROMOTE MORE KINDNESS IN

THE SCHOOL BECAUSE OF THE

CHRISTIAN VALUES.

IF YOU'RE ACTUALLY

COMMITTED TO GOD AND YOU

WANT TO GET HIS WORD OUT

THERE, I THINK IT IS A

REALLY THIN GOOD THING TO DO

AND PASS IT ON.

Reporter: IF YOU

START A STUDENT BIBLE

CLUB, YOU BECOME AN ACTIVE

DISCIPLE OF CHRIST, RIGHT

IN THE PLACE WHERE YOU'RE

GOING EVERY DAY ANYWAY.

PAUL STRAND, REPORTING

FROM REDBANK NEW VALLEY

HIGH SCHOOL, IN

PENNSYLVANIA.

Efrem: COMING UP,

CHILDREN ARE BEING USED AS

HUMAN SACRIFICES IN

UGANDA.

BUT SEE HOW THOSE WHO

SURVIVED ARE SPEAKING OUT

TO MAKE A CHANGE.

IT IS A STORY YOU DON'T

WANT TO MISS.

WE'VE GOT IT FOR YOU

COMING UP NEXT.

Efrem: EVERY YEAR

HUNDREDS OF U UGANDAN

CHILDREN ARE KIDNAPPED AND

MURDERED.

IT IS PART OF A THRIVING

HUMAN SACRIFICE BUSINESS.

BUT NOW A CHRISTIAN PASTOR

IS TEAMING UP WITH POLICE

AND POLITICIANS TO STOP

THIS BRUTAL PRACTICE.

WE WANT TO WARN YOU PARTS

OF THIS STORY ARE

DISTURBING.

OUR GEORGE THOMAS BRINGS

US THIS EXCLUSIVE REPORT

FROM UGANDA'S CAPITAL,

KAMPALA.

George: IT IS A

LITTLE AFTER 2:00 IN THE

MORNING.

ABOUT AN HOUR'S DRIVE

SOUTH OF KAMPALA.

CBN NEWS HAS JOINED

UNDERCOVER DETECTIVES,

ARMED POLICE, AND A

PASTOR, HUNTING FOR A

WITCH DOCTOR, ACCUSED OF

KIDNAPPING AND KILLING

CHILDREN.

WITCH DOCTORS BELIEVE

WHEN YOU KIDNAP A CHILD,

YOU GET WELL, YOU GET

PROTECTION.

George: THIS PASTOR

LEADS THE SEARCH.

HE RUNS CHA KHAMPISA CHRISTIAN

MINISTRIES.

AN EFFORT TO STAMP OUT

CHILD SACRIFICE IN UGANDA.

WHEN THEY GET A CHILD,

MOST TIMES THEY CUT THE

NECK.

THEY TAKE THE BLOOD OUT.

THEY CUT THE JEN TILL GENTILES OR

ANY ORGANS THAT THE

SPIRITS WANT.

George: A FEW HOURS

IN, THE TRAIL FOR THE

KILLER GOES COLD.

THE PASTOR SAYS THESE

GRUESOME CRIMES HAPPEN

ALMOST EACH MONTH.

THERE ARE VERY FEW,

ACTUALLY, THAT SURVIVE.

MOST OF THEM DIE.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator: I

HAD HIGH HOPES AND DREAMS

FOR CLYDE.

George: RACHEL'S

3-YEAR-OLD SON, CLIVE,

DISAPPEARED JUNE 2

STANDARD, 2015, WHILE

PLAYING IN THE BACKYARD OF

THEIR HOME.

IT WAS AROUND 10:00 IN

THE MORNING WHEN WE

NOTICED HE WAS NOWHERE TO

BE FOUND.

George: CBN MET HER

THE DAY THAT THEY TOLD HER

WHAT HAPPENED TO HER SON.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

CHILD SACRIFICE MEANT.

George: THE DETECTIVE

TOOK US TO THE SPOT, NOT

TOO FAR FROM HIS HOME,

WHERE THEY FOUND CLIVE'S

REMAINS, IN THIS PIT

TOILET, FILLED WITH FECES.

THE SUSPECT TURNED OUT TO

BE HER NEIGHBOR, WHO

ALLEGEDLY HIRED TWO MEN TO

KIDNAP AND MUTILATE

CLYDE'S BODY, BELIEVING

THE ACT WOULD BRING GOOD

LUCK TO HIS NEW HOTEL

PROJECT.

THE DETECTIVE SAID THE

SUSPECT PAID THE EV

EQUIVALENT OF $1400 FOR

CLIVE LIFE.

HOW CAN SOMEONE

SACRIFICE A 3-YEAR-OLD

KID.

George: CHILD

SACRIFICE HERE IN UGANDA

IS SUCH A WIDESPREAD

PROBLEM, THAT THE

GOVERNMENT HAS SET UP A

ANTI-CHILD SACRIFICE AND

HUMAN SERVICE.

THEY OFTEN SLICE THE

CHILD'S TONGUE AND MIX IT

WITH HERBS FOR SPECIAL

POWERS.

THE TONGUE IS USED TO

FORCE AWAY ENEMIES.

George: THIS MAN IS

THE EQUIVALENT OF

AMERICA'S

ATTORNEY-GENERAL.

HE SAYS SUPERSTITION AND

WANTING TO GET RICH QUICK

RESULTS IN THE SACRIFICE

IN THIS COUNTRY.

THE WITCH DOCTORS COME

AND TELL PEOPLE WHO WANT

TO GET RICH, IN ORDER TO

GET RICH YOU NEED TO

SACRIFICE HUMAN BLOOD.

George: THESE TWO

BEST FRIENDS, CANANI,

GEORGE, AND ALLEN, ARE

FORTUNATE TO BE ALIVE.

BUT THEY BEAR THE PHYSICAL

AND EMOTIONAL SCARS OF

THEIR PAST.

THE THREE ARE CHILD

SACRIFICE SURVIVORS.

A FEW YEARS BACK, KANANI

AND HIS SEVEN-YEAR-OLD

SISTER WERE ATTACKED IN

THE BUSH.

HE HAS A 10-INCH SCAR ON

THE BACK OF HIS NECK WHERE

THE WITCH DOCTOR TRIED TO

DRAIN HIS BLOOD.

I FAINTED, AND WHEN I

REGAINED CONSCIOUSNESS, I

FOUND MY SISTER DEAD, WITH

HER HEAD MISSING.

George: TWO MEN

ATTACKED ALLEN ON HIS WAY

HOME FROM SCHOOL.

I TRIED TO SCREAM FOR

MY PARENTS, BUT MY VOICE

IS NOT STRONG ENOUGH FOR

THEM TO HEAR ME.

George: THEY STABBED

HIS NECK, SLICED HIS HEAD

WITH A MACHETE, AND THEN

CASTRATED HIM.

ALLEN REMAINED IN A COMA

FOR TWO MONTHS AFTER HIS

MIRACULOUS RESCUE.

GEORGE'S MOTHER FOUND HIM

LYING IN A POOL OF BLOOD

AFTER A MAN CASTRATED HIS

PRIVATES WITH A BLUNT

KNIFE.

DOCTORS HAD TO RECONSTRUCT

HIS GENTILE GENITALS WITH SKIN

GRAFTED FROM HIS FOREARM.

GOD IS HELPING US IN

MANY DIFFERENT WAYS.

WHEN WE THINK ABOUT WHAT

HAPPENED TO US, WE PRAY

AND ASK GOD THAT IT NOT

HAPPEN TO ANYBODY ELSE.

George: THE THREE

BOYS ARE NOW UNDER PASTOR

PETER'S CARE.

THE KAMPISI ORGANIZATION

PROVIDES MEDICAL CARE FOR

CHILDREN OF CHILD

SACRIFICE.

WE WANT TO SEE THAT THE

CHILD IS SUPPORTED, THAT

THEY'RE SOCIALLY ABLE TO

STAND AND HEAL FROM THE

INJURIES, AND THAT THEY

CAN HAVE A LIFE AFTER

THAT.

George: RACHEL SAYS

LIFE WITHOUT CLIVE WILL

NEVER BE THE SAME.

BUT SHE HAS A MESSAGE FOR

THE MEN WHO BRUTALLY

MURDERED HER 3-YEAR-OLD

SON.

BECAUSE OF MY FAITH IN

JESUS, I WOULD FORGIVE

THEM BECAUSE THERE IS

NOTHING THEY CAN DO TO

BRING MY CHILD BACK.

MY MESSAGE TO THEM IS COME

TO THE LORD, BECAUSE WHEN

YOU COME TO THE LORD, HE

WILL FORGIVE YOUR SIN.

George: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS, KAMPALA,

UUGANDA.

Efrem: QUARTERBACK

RUSSELL WILSON TALKS FAITH

AND OPPORTUNITY.

GOD GIVES US TREMENDOUS

OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE OUR

EXPERIENCE.

George: THAT STORY IS

COMING UP NEXT.

Efrem: WELL, FOOTBALL

SEASON IS JUST HEATING UP,

AND, OF COURSE, OUR EYES

ARE ON NFL STAR

QUARTERBACK RUSSELL WILSON

AND THE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS.

HE JOINS US FOR "STUDIO

5's" FAITH ON THE FIELD

TO TALK LIFE AND

OPPORTUNITY.

RUSSELL WILSON PREPARES

FOR ANOTHER YEAR.

TAKING

THE SNAP IN SEATTLE, AND

HOPES TO ADD ANOTHER

LOMBARDI TROPHY TO HIS

REGIMEN.

WHEN YOU WIN, YOU HOLD

UP THE LOMBARDI TROPHY AND

IT IS A UNIQUE THING.

AND THEN YOU START

THINKING, WHEN IS THE NEXT

ONE COMING.

Efrem: HE HAS ALREADY

APPEARED IN THE SUPER BOWL

TWICE.

WE WON SUPER BOWL 48

BUT UNFORTUNATELY LOST

SUPER BOWL 49.

IT IS A POSITION THAT YOU

GET A LOT OF SUCCESS AND

POSITIVE THINGS, BUT

SOMETIMES THINGS DON'T GO

YOUR WAY, TOO.

Efrem: THE SEAHAWKS,

WITH THE BALL ON THE

20-YARD LINE WITH 26

SECONDS LEFT, COULDN'T

MAKE IT ACROSS THE GOAL

LINE.

IT WAS A TOUGH ONE, BUT

GOD WAS TALKING TO ME,

SAYING HE IS GOING TO USE

ME.

I THINK THAT IS ANYTHING

IN LIFE.

WHEN YOU GO THROUGH UPS

AND DOWNS IN LIFE, GOD

WANTS TO USE US AS VESSELS

SO THAT PEOPLE CAN SEE AND

FIGURE OUT WHO HE REALLY

IS.

GOD HAS GIVEN US AN

TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITY TO

SHARE OUR EXPERIENCE AND

OUR LIVES WITH SO MANY

OTHER PEOPLE, AND TO

EXPLAIN AND TALK ABOUT WHY

WE'RE HERE, TO ENCOURAGE

OTHERS AS I GO THROUGH MY

WALK.

AND I TRY TO HELP PEOPLE

THROUGH OTHER PEOPLE'S

WALKS AND NOT JUDGE OR

CONDEMN, AND JESUS HAS TO

BE THE CENTER OF IT ALL.

LOVING PEOPLE HAS TO BE

THE CENTER OF IT ALL, TOO,

BECAUSE GOD IS LOVE.

I KNOW FOR ME THE IDEA OF

SURRENDERING IS THE MOST

IMPORTANT PART.

YOU STUDY FOOTBALL AND

PRACTICE, BUT THEN YOU

TRUST IN GOD.

THERE IS NO REASON WHY NOT

TO TRUST THAT.

Efrem: OFF THE FIELD,

HE MAKES WEEKLY VISITS TO

THE SEATTLE CHILDREN'S

HOSPITAL AND RUNS THE

RUSSELL WILSON PASSING

ACADEMY.

A FOOTBALL CAMP THAT GOES

BEYOND THE GAME.

THE CAMP'S MISSION: TO

DEVELOP GOOD CHARACTER,

SERVE OTHERS, AND LOVE

GOD.

TO GET TO SEE OVER

5,000 KIDS EVERY YEAR AT

THE FOOTBALL CAMPS, AND

THAT'S THE MAIN THING I

TALK ABOUT, THAT GOD CAN

USE ANYBODY.

I WAS THE 5' 11" GUY AND

PEOPLE THOUGHT I COULDN'T

DO IT.

BUT FOR ME IT WORKED OUT

JUST RIGHT.

I'M NEVER PERFECT OR

ANYTHING LIKE THAT, BUT

WHEN YOU FOCUS ON GOD AND

LET GOD DIRECT THE WHOLE

PATH, THINGS WORK OUT.

MY FAVORITE SCRIPTURE HAS

BEEN JOHN 3: 30.

HE MUST INCREASE BUT I

MUST DECREASE.

WHEN YOU LOOK BACK ON THE

LEGACY OF THE SEAHAWKS,

HOPEFULLY WE WERE ABLE TO

CHANGE LIVES AND SAVE

LIVES, AND IT WAS NOT JUST

MULTIPLE SUPER BOWLS.

Efrem: CHANGING LIVES

AND SAVING LIVES OFF THE

FIELD.

STAY WITH US.

THERE IS MUCH MORE OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH" COMING UP COMING RIGHT

UP.

Efrem: CBN'S

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS IN

TEXAS.

THEY'VE BEEN THERE FOR

DAYS, HELPING RESIDENTS

WHO WERE HIT BY HURRICANE

HARVEY.

THEY ARE HANDING OUT FOOD

AND WATER, BUT THEY SAY

THE WORK IS NOWHERE NEAR

DONE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: CBN'S

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

BEEN ON THE GROUND IN

TEXAS SINCE BEFORE

HURRICANE HARVEY MADE LAND

FALL.

NOW THE ORGANIZATION IS

WORKING IN SEVERAL

COMMUNITIES ACROSS

SOUTHERN TEXAS, INCLUDING

THE COMMUNITY OF TAFT.

WE HAVE A SEMI TRUCK

ARRIVING TOMORROW.

THEY'RE STILL WITHOUT

POWER, WITHOUT PORTABLE

WATER.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

MOVING INTO COMMUNITIES

LIKE THAT.

Reporter: O.B. WAS

ONE OF THE FIRST

ORGANIZATIONS TO STEP UP

AND DONATE TO A MEGA

SHELTER IN DALLAS THAT IS

HELPING STRANDED FAMILIES.

MOST OF THE PEOPLE LEFT

THEIR HOMES WITH NOTHING,

JUST THEIR CLOTHING, THEIR

CHILDREN, THEIR PETS.

AND SO WHEN WE ASK THEM

WHAT THEY NEED THE MOST,

IT IS GOING TO BE WHAT

THEIR CHILDREN NEED THE

MOST.

SO WE GAVE THEM THE

PACKAGE THAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" HAS GIVEN TO US.

Reporter: FROM DALLAS

TO TAFT AND ROCKPORT,

TEXAS, "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS GIVING OUT

FOOD AND WATER SUPPLIES.

AND YOU CAN SEE THE LOOK

OF RELIEF ON PEOPLE'S

FACES AS THEY GET HELP.

BUT THIS DISASTER IS FAR

FROM OVER.

THE THREAT OF A SECOND

HURRICANE LUMES AS HARVEY

IS EXPECTED TO GAIN

STRENGTH OVER THE GULF

COAST.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

ASKING YOU FOR PRAYER AND

A DONATION TO HELP THEM

HELP TEXAS.

TALIA WEISS, CBN NEWS.

WEDNESDAY WORD.
