Efrem: THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M MARK MARTIN.

AS TEXANS CONTINUE TO

GRAPPLE WITH HURRICANE

HARVEY, A NEW STORM IS

MAKING ITS WAY ACROSS THE

CARIBBEAN.

IRMA IS AN EXTREMELY

DANGEROUS CATEGORY 5

STORM, PACKING 190

MILE-AN-HOUR WINDS.

THIS WEEKEND IT COULD MAKE

A DIRECT HIT ON FLORIDA.

AMBER C. STRONG HAS MORE

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: FLORIDA

RESIDENTS AREN'T LEAVING

ANYTHING TO CHANCE,

STOCKING UP ON WATER AND

SUPPLIES, AND TAKING THE

NECESSARY STEPS TO GET

READY FOR THE EXTREMELY

HIGH WINDS EXPECTED IF

HURRICANE IRMA MAKE ITS

WAY ASHORE THERE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS

ALREADY APPROVED EMERGENCY

DECLARATIONS IN PUERTO

RICO AND THE U.S. VIRGIN

ISLANDS, FOR WHAT

FORECASTERS ARE CALLING

ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL

STORMS IN THE HISTORY OF

THE ATLANTIC.

THE AIRPORTS ON THE ISLAND

ANTIGUA HAVE SHUT DOWN

WITH A SIMPLE PRAYER: MAY

GOD PROTECT US ALL.

DO NOT SIT AND WAIT TO

PREPARE.

GET PREPARED NOW.

Reporter: OFFICIALS

IN THE FLORIDA KEYS HAVE

ALSO ORDERED MANDATORY

EVACUATIONS.

IT IS GOING TO BE CRAZY

GETTING OUT OF HERE.

GETTING OUT OF THE

KEYS, THERE IS ONLY ONE

WAY IN AND ONE WAY OUT.

WATER, BATTERIES,

FLASHLIGHTS AND THE

ESSENTIALS.

RIGHT NOW IT IS A

LITTLE EARLY TO TELL, BUT

IT IS A GOOD TIME TO BE

PREPARED.

Reporter: ALL OF THIS

AS TEXANS ARE STILL

CLEANING UP IN THE

AFTERMATH OF HURRICANE

HARVEY.

LAWMAKERS ARE WORKING TO

GET EMERGENCY FUND AFTER

HARVEY, WITH EFFORTS TO

RAISE THE DEBT CEILING.

IN THE MEANTIME, CHARITIES

LIKE "OPERATION BLESSING"

ARE STANDING IN THE GAP,

WITH THOUSANDS OF

VOLUNTEERS HELPING WITH

THE CLEANUP EFFORTS, AND

WORKING ALONGSIDE TEXANS,

HOPING TO RESTORE THEIR

LIVES.

WHEN "OPERATION

BLESSING" VOLUNTEERS

ARRIVE, THEY GO FROM BEING

INCREDIBLY DOWNCAST, TO

ALL OF A SUDDEN HAVING

HOPE AND KNOWING THEY'RE

NOT ALONE.

Reporter: THE O.B.

TEAM SAYS THEY WILL

CONTINUE THEIR WORK WITH

TEXANS, AND GETTING READY

FOR HOME HURRICANE IRMA AS

WELL.

WE'RE PRAYING THAT

THING TURNS AROUND AND

GOES BACK TO THE SEA, BUT

IF IT HITS THERE, WE'LL BE

THERE LOVING ON PEOPLE,

WORKING WITH LOCAL PASTORS

AND CHURCHES AND EMERGENCY

MANAGEMENT.

Reporter: EXPERTS ARE

PREDICTING WIND SPEEDS OF

UP TO 22 225 MILES PER HOUR

BY THE TIME ALL IS SAID

AND DONE.

AMBER C. STRONG, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Mark: HURRICANE IRMA

IS NOW A MONSTER, CATEGORY

5 STORM.

JOE BASTARDI IS A CHIEF

METEOROLOGIST, AND HE

JOINS US WITH MORE.

WELCOME, JOE.

NICE TO BE HERE.

Mark: FIRST OF ALL,

GIVE US YOUR FORECAST,

WHEN AND WHERE WILL IT

HIT, AND HOW STRONG DO YOU

THINK IT WILL BE HIT THEN?

CATEGORY 5 WILL

DEVASTATE THE VIRGIN

ISLANDS, AND PUERTO RICO

WILL GET A BAD STORM, BUT

IT WILL NOT HIT THEM

DIRECTLY.

IT WILL CONTINUE INTO THE

TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS

AS A CATEGORY 4 OR 5

STORM, AND A DEVASTATING

HURRICANE AT THAT.

NOW, DO I BELIEVE FLORIDA

IS GOING TO GET HIT, AND

IT IS GOING TO BE

CATASTROPHIC WHERE IT

HITS.

THE EASIEST WAY OUT, IF

YOU WANT TO CALL IT THAT,

WITH THIS HURRICANE IS

THAT AFTER THE SOUTHERN

BAHAMAS, IT GOES WEST INTO

CUBA, WEAKENS FOR A WHILE,

AND THEN COMES BACK NORTH.

IF THAT'S THE CASE, WE

HAVE A SEVERE HURRICANE

FOR SOUTH FLORIDA.

IF IT JUST STAYS OVER THE

WATER AND GOES BETWEEN

CUBA AND FLORIDA BEFORE

COMING INTO FLORIDA, THIS

COULD BE AS BAD A

HURRICANE AS WE'VE EVER

SEEN HIT SOUTH FLORIDA,

AND IN THE WORST-CASE

SCENARIO, I COULD SEE THE

PRESSURE IN THIS, THE

BAROMETRIC PRESSURE,

FALLING AS LOW AT THE 1935

LABOR DAY HURRICANE, WHICH

BROUGHT WINDS OF OVER

200 MILES PER HOUR TO THE

FLORIDA KEYS.

THERE IS A TREMENDOUS

AMOUNT OF POTENTIAL FOR

THIS.

IT WOULD HAVE TO THREAD A

NEEDLE TO DO THAT, BUT IT

IS VERY, VERY RARE THAT

THAT THREADING OF THE

NEEDLE IS ACTUALLY ON THE

TABLE.

Mark: WELL, WHAT'S

GOING TO HAPPEN AFTER IT

MAKES LANDFALL?

WELL, IT IS GOING TO

CONTINUE TO DEVASTATE

FLORIDA, UP THE COAST,

WHICHEVER COAST IT MOVES

UP ALONG.

IF IT MOVES UP ALONG THE

WEST COAST, YOU'RE TALKING

TAMPA AND ON UP IN THERE,

AND IT WILL BE WEAKENING,

AND IT WILL BE 80 TO 100

MILE-AN-HOUR HURRICANE BY

THE TIME IT GETS NORTH OF

TAMPA.

IF IT GOES UP THE EAST

COAST VERY CLOSE, THAT'S A

BIGGER PROBLEM BECAUSE WE

HAVE MORE PORTS UP THERE,

ALL THE WAY UP TO

JACKSONVILLE.

REMEMBER, A HURRICANE

COMING UP THE WEST SIDE OF

FLORIDA IS PULLING AIR IN

FROM OFF FLORIDA.

THAT'S WHY THE 1935

HURRICANE, WHICH IS THE

BENCHMARK HURRICANE, WENT

THROUGH THERE AS A

CATEGORY 5, BUT BY THE

TIME IT MADE ITS FINAL

LANDFALL NEAR CEDAR KEY,

IT WAS A CATEGORY 1.

IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS

TARGETING SOUTH FLORIDA.

OUR TRACK IS INTO THE

SOUTHWEST COAST OF FLORIDA

RIGHT NOW.

BUT I'M VERY NERVOUS.

EVEN IF IT GOES INTO THE

SOUTHWEST COAST OF

FLORIDA, ALL OF FLORIDA IS

GOING TO GET A HURRICANE,

IF YOU LIVE EAST OF

APALACHICO COLA.

Mark: WHAT DO YOU

ADVICE PEOPLE TO DO WHO

ARE IN THE PANE PATH OF IRMA?

LISTEN TO WHATEVER

AUTHORITIES ON THAT MATTER

HAVE TO SAY.

YOU PREPARE FOR THE WORST,

PRAY FOR THE BEST.

AND THAT'S WHAT I WOULD

DO.

Mark: WHAT CAN OUR

VIEWERS DO TO HELP?

THEY MAY NOT BE IN THE

PATH OF THIS STORM, BUT

THEY WANT TO HELP?

THAT'S UP TO EVERYBODY

ELSE.

I DON'T MEAN TO SOUND

FLIPPANT HERE, BUT GOD

GAVE ME THE ABILITY TO

FORECAST THE WEATHER, AND

THAT'S WHERE I'M GOING

HERE.

AS FAR AS THOSE THINGS,

PEOPLE HAVE TO PAY

ATTENTION TO WHAT

CHARITIES THEY CAN

CONTRIBUTE TO, OR WHATEVER

THEY'RE BEING TOLD, AND GO

WHERE THEIR HEART MOVES

THEM.

Mark: OKAY, JOE,

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

TIME AND INSIGHTS TODAY,

SIR.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME.

I ALWAYS ENJOY COMING UP.

Mark: IN OTHER NEWS,

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS GOING

ALL OUT TO PROMOTE HIS NEW

TAX PLAN.

TODAY'S MEETING IN THE

OVAL OFFICE WITH

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS ON

THE ISSUE, AND THIS

AFTERNOON HE IS HOLDING A

TAX REFORM EVENT WITH

ENERGY SECTOR WORKERS IN

BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA.

AND HE IS TAKING SENATOR

HEIDI HIGHCAMP WITH HIM.

HE LAID OUT HIS PLAN TO

BOOST THE ECONOMY.

President Trump:

WE'RE GOING TO CUT TAXES.

WE'RE GOING TO REDUCE

TAXES FOR PEOPLE, FOR

INDIVIDUALS, FOR MIDDLE

INCOME FAMILIES.

WE'RE GOING TO REDUCE

TAXES FOR COMPANIES.

AND THOSE COMPANIES ARE

GOING TO PRODUCE JOBS.

Mark: THE PLAN AIMS

TO MAKE THE TAX CODE AS

SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE:

PROVIDE TAX RELIEF FOR

MIDDLE CLASS WORKERS AND

FAMILIES, AND RESTORE A,

QUOTE, "COMPETITIVE EDGE"

FOR U.S. BUSINESSES.

THE PRESIDENT BELIEVES HIS

PLAN WILL CREATE MILLIONS

OF NEW JOBS.

> COMING UP, PRESIDENT

TRUMP CALLS ON CONGRESS TO

DEAL WITH THE DREAMERS.

WHAT WILL IT MEAN FOR

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE LIVING ILLEGALLY IN

AMERICA?

Mark: AND WELCOME

BACK.

STRONG REACTION FROM

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS TO

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S DECISION

TO PHASE OUT THE DACA

PROGRAM.

DACA WAS AN OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION EXECUTIVE

ORDER THAT GAVE CHILDREN

OF UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS

A CHANCE TO OBTAIN WORK

PERMITS AND GO TO SCHOOL.

AMBER C. STRONG HAS A LOOK

AT THE WHITE HOUSE'S PLAN

AND REACTION FROM

POLITICIANS.

Reporter: THE

DECISION IS IN WHEN IT

COMES TO DREAMERS.

I'M AMBER C. STRONG AT THE

WHITE HOUSE.

ATTORNEY-GENERAL JEFF

SESSIONS LAID OUT THE

ADMINISTRATION'S PLAN WHEN

IT COMES TO THE FUTURE FOR

DACA RECIPIENTS.

I'M HERE TO ANNOUNCE

THAT THE PROGRAM KNOWN AS

DACA, UNDER THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION, IS BEING

RESCINDED.

Reporter: THAT MEANS

NO APPLICANTS, BUT

EXISTING PERMITS WILL NOT

EXPIRE FOR ANOTHER SIX

MONTHS AND REMAIN ACTIVE

FOR UP TO TWO YEARS.

THAT SIX-MONTH WINDDOWN

PUTS THE BALL IN CONGRESS'

COURT.

THE PRESIDENT TWEETED,

CONGRESS, GET READY TO DO

YOUR JOB, DACA APPLIES TO

CHILDREN BROUGHT TO THE

U.S. ILLEGALLY BY THEIR

PARENTS.

UNDER AN OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION EXECUTIVE

ORDER, THEY WERE ALLOWED

TO OBTAIN WORK PERMITS, AS

LONG AS THEY ADHERE TO

STRICT GUIDELINES,

INCLUDING GRADUATING FROM

HIGH SCHOOL OR OBTAINING A

G.E.D., AN HONORABLE

DISCHARGE FROM THE

MILITARY, AND REMAINING

FREE FROM FELONIES.

SESSIONS CRITICIZED

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S DECISION

TO IMPLEMENT DACA IN THE

FIRST PLACE, CALLING IT

PRESIDENTIAL OVERREACH.

THE POLICY WAS

IMPLEMENTED UNILATERALLY,

TO GREAT CONTROVERSY AND

LEGAL CONCERN.

AFTER CONGRESS REJECTED

LEGISLATIVE PROPOSALS TO

EXTEND SIMILAR BENEFITS ON

NUMEROUS OCCASIONS TO THIS

SAME GROUP OF ILLEGAL

ALIENS.

Reporter: FORMER

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

WEIGHED IN ON TODAY'S

DECISION.

HE WROTE, "THESE DREAMERS

ARE AMERICANS IN THEIR

HEARTS AND MINDS AND IN

EVERY SINGLE WAY BUT ONE,

ON PAPER.

THEY WERE BROUGHT TO THIS

COUNTRY BY THEIR PARENTS

SOMETIMES AS INFANTS.

THEY MAY NOT KNOW A

COUNTRY OTHER THAN OURS."

REAGAN, BUSH --

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING IN SPANISH

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: NOW IT'S UP

TO CONGRESS.

SOME MEMBERS OF THE

SENATE, INCLUDING SENATOR

LINDSEY GRAHAM, HAVE

ALREADY PUT FORTH

LEGISLATION, HOPING TO

DEAL WITH THE 800,000

PEOPLE IMPACTED BY TODAY'S

ANNOUNCEMENT.

I'M AMBER C. STRONG FOR

CBN NEWS AT THE WHITE

HOUSE.

Mark: CBN NEWS SPOKE

WITH TWO PEOPLE DEEPLY

INVOLVED WITH THE DACA

DEBATE.

ANDREA GONZALES IS A

DREAMER WHO'S LIFE COULD

BE AFFECTED IF CONGRESS

DOESN'T TAKE ACTION.

HEATHER SELLS SPOKE WITH

THEM.

Reporter: ANDREA, I'M

CURIOUS FOR YOU AND YOUR

SISTER, HOW D DOES THIS SIT

WITH YOU TODAY?

IN ONE SENSE, I WAS

EXPECTING IT.

I WAS EXPECTING SOMETHING

VERY DRASTIC TO HAPPEN.

AND IT DID.

HOWEVER, I ALSO -- I WAS

TELLING MY FATHER THE

OTHER DAY, AND I SAID,

DAD, I'M SCARED.

BUT I'M VERY CONFIDENT

THAT WHATEVER HAPPENS, GOD

IS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF

US ALL, ALL DACA STUDENTS,

ALL DREAMERS, BECAUSE I

BELIEVE THAT IN A VERY

HARD WAY GOD USES THESE

THINGS TO TEACH US HOW TO

DEPEND ON HIM IN WAYS THAT

WE COULD NOT.

AND GOD USES ALL THESE

DIFFICULTIES FOR US TO

TURN TO HIM.

AND SO IN THIS SENSE MAYBE

THIS IS SOMETHING I'VE

BEEN LOOKING FOR, THAT

I'VE BEEN LONGING FOR, THE

AMERICAN DREAM THAT I

CAN'T HAVE, OR THAT IS

DELAYED IN A SENSE.

BUT I'M HOPEFUL THAT

SOMETHING -- SOMEBODY WILL

CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR US.

Reporter: AND

SPEAKING OF FIGHTING, WE

WANT TO TALK TO REVEREND

TORREZ ABOUT THAT.

WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT.

THEY'RE SAYING WE'RE

ENDING THE PROGRAM, BUT

WE'RE PUTTING THE ONUS ON

CONGRESS.

ALL OF THIS TOOK PLACE

BECAUSE OF CONGRESS'

INACTION, WHICH ALLOWED

PRESIDENT OBAMA TO TAKE

ACTION AT THAT TIME.

WE KNEW THIS WOULD BE A

TEMPORARY PROGRAM.

THE FIRST WORD OF DACA IS

"DEFERRED," WHICH

ESSENTIALLY MEANT WE WON'T

DEPORT YOU TODAY, BUT IT

IS BEING DELAYED FOR A

LATER DATE.

IT WAS UP FOR EXTENSION.

AND PRESIDENT TRUMP,

RATHER THAN END THE

PROGRAM, HE IS DISSOLVING

THE PROGRAM.

HE IS GIVING AN EXTENSION

FOR THOSE WHO ARE

CURRENTLY PART OF THE

PROGRAM.

HE IS GIVING THEM A

TWO-YEAR WINDOW, AND HE IS

PUTTING PRESSURE ON

CONGRESS TO ACT IN THE

NEXT SIX MONTHS.

REVEREND RODRIGUEZ --

WE'RE LAUNCHING A CAMPAIGN

THAT IN THE NEXT 60 DAYS

CONGRESS GIVE US A

PERMANENT SOLUTION.

THIS IS A LIFE ISSUE OF

PEOPLE, LIKE ANDREA, WHO

LIVED IN THIS COUNTRY AND

DESERVE THIS PERVERBIAL

AMERICAN DREAM.

THEY GO TO SCHOOL WITH OUR

CHILDREN, WHO ARE BORN

AMERICAN CITIZENS, AND WE

WITHIN TOGETHERWORSHIP TOGETHER, AND IT

IS TIME CONGRESS ACT.

THEY NEED TO STOP TWEETING

AND GET IN AN OFFICE AND

START WORKING ON PERMANENT

LEGISLATION, GET IT TO

SPEAKER RYAN, AND LET'S

GET IT IN THE WHITE HOUSE

SO CONGRESS CAN SIGN IT.

Reporter: IT SEEMS

LIKE AN INTERESTING

MOMENT, AND IT SEEMS LIKE

THE NATIONAL SPOTLIGHT IS

ON DREAMERS, THESE

IMMIGRANTS, WHO REALLY

NEED SOME KIND OF LEGAL

SOLUTION.

ANDREA, FOR YOURSELF, YOU

HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WORK,

YOU HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GO

TO SCHOOL BECAUSE OF THE

DACA PROGRAM.

SO IF IT ENDS, WHAT MIGHT

YOU DO?

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR

SCENARIO?

IF IT ENDS, IT WOULD

HAVE ME WORRIED.

I WANT TO HELP MY PARENTS.

THEY GAVE UP EVERYTHING

FOR ME, SO I WANT TO GIVE

WHAT I HAVE TO THEM.

THAT WOULD MAKE MY FUTURE

VERY INSECURE.

I'M ACTUALLY GOING BACK TO

FINISH SCHOOL IN OCTOBER.

THAT KIND OF PUTS A DAMPER

ON IT IF IT TRULY DOES

END.

BUT I BELIEVE THAT THERE

IS MORE.

Mark: YOU CAN SEE THE

FULL INTERVIEW WITH TONY

SUAREZ AND ANDREA GONZALES

AT cbn.com.

> THERE IS A FILM BASED

ON A TRUE STORY DRIVEN

ENTIRELY BY COLLEGE

STUDENTS.

Mark: A NEW MOVIE

COMES OUT THIS WEEK, AND

IT'S CALLED

"EXTRAORDINARY," AND IT'S

MADE BY STUDENTS FROM

LIBERTY UNIVERSITY.

SCOTTIE CURLY SAT DOWN

WITH "STUDIO 5" WITH EFREM

GRAHAM TO TALK ABOUT THE

FILM, BASED ON A TRUE

STORY OF MARATHON RUNNER

DAVE HORTON.

STAGE 25.

SO THE FILM IS CALLED

"EXTRAORDINARY."

THAT'S RIGHT.

Efrem: AND IT IS A

STUDENT-PRODUCED FILM?

IT IS THE FIRST

STUDENT-DRIVEN FILM TO BE

PRODUCED IN THEATERS

NATIONWIDE.

Efrem: WOW.

TELL ME HOW THIS BEGAN AND

WHY DAVE HORTON.

DAVE WAS ACTUALLY A

PROFESSOR OF MINE.

HE INSPIRED ME TO DREAM

BIG DREAMS AND PUT THE

LORD FIRST AND GO AFTER

THEM.

SO WHAT WE WANTED TO DO

WAS MAKE A MOVIE THAT

WOULD BE BASED UPON TRUE

EVENTS OR TRUE LIFE STORY,

AND THIS WAS THE PERFECT

PROJECT FOR US TO TAKE ON.

SO 60 FILM STUDENTS CAME

TOGETHER TO MAKE THIS

MOVIE.

Efrem: SO WHO IS DAVE

HORTON?

HE IS AN ULTRA MARATHON

LEGEND.

HE HOLDS SEVERAL WORLD

RECORDS.

HE IS A FORMER

RECORD-HOLDER OF THE

APPALACHIAN TRAIL, THE

LONG TRAIL.

HE HAS RUN ENOUGH MILES TO

CIRCLE THE EARTH FOUR AND

A HALF TIMES.

TO RECREATE THE JOURNEY

ACROSS AMERICA, IT IS

ABOUT HIS RUN FROM

HUNTINGTON BEACH,

CALIFORNIA, TO CENTRAL NEW

YORK.

Efrem: SO YOU MADE

THE JOURNEY AS WELL?

[LAUGHTER]

WE SURE DID.

WE SURE DID.

Efrem: THE STORY

ABOUT HIM, AN ULTRA

MARATHON RUNNER, AND IT IS

ALSO A STORY ABOUT

MARRIAGE.

TELL ME WHY?

THAT'S CORRECT.

WHEN WE FIRST TOOK ON THIS

STORY, WE THOUGHT IT WAS

ABOUT THIS INSPIRATIONAL

GUY WHO INSPIRED THOUSANDS

OF STUDENTS THROUGHOUT HIS

CAREER.

BUT AS WE UNCOVERED THE

LAYERS OF THE STORY, WE

BEGAN TO REALIZE THAT,

YES, DAVE IS EXTRAORDINARY

FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE, BUT

THERE IS THIS WHOLE OTHER

PERSON THAT HAS BEEN

PRAYING FOR HIM,

ENCOURAGING HIM, AND BE

THE FOUNDATION, AND THAT'S

HIS WIFE NANCY.

WHAT ABOUT MARRIAGE?

WHAT ABOUT FATHERHOOD.

YOU'RE FAMILY.

IT SEEMS LIKE SOMETHING

TO RUN TO.

IT HAS BEEN SUCH A

JOURNEY, DIVING INTO THE

STORY AND FINDING THIS

SURPRISE.

WOW, THERE IS THIS

INCREDIBLE WOMAN BEHIND

THIS STORY.

Efrem: LET'S TALK

ABOUT CASTING.

SOME BIG NAMES IN THE

CHRISTIAN FILM WORLD --

HARD TO GET THEM ON BOARD?

WHEN THEY REALIZED THE

STORY, THE POTENTIAL

IMPACT OF THIS MARRIAGE

JOURNEY, THEY CAME ON

BOARD BECAUSE THEY KNEW

THE POTENTIAL IT HAD.

MAYBE DAVE IS GIVING

YOU EVERYTHING HE CAN GIVE

YOU RIGHT NOW.

BUT IT IS NOT ENOUGH.

AND WHEN DID SERVING

GOD BECOME NOT SERVING

FAMILY.

SHIRLEY PLAYS THE WIFE.

A TREMENDOUSLY TALENTED

ACTRESS.

WHEN WE SAW SHIRLEY, WE

SAID THIS IS OUR NANCY.

WHEN WE STARTED THIS

LIFE TOGETHER, I PROMISED

FOR BETTER OR WORSE, IN

SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH.

DAVE HORTON IS PLAYED

BY LELAND, AND HE IS

FAMOUS IN CANADA.

EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS GUY.

HE WASN'T REALLY A RUNNER.

HE LOOKS LIKE A RUNNER, HE

IS THIN -- SO HE HAD TO

ADAPT AND LEARN ABOUT

DAVE.

I'M A TEACHER.

STUDENTS LOOK UP TO ME.

I DO WHAT I SET OUT TO DO.

I LEAD BY EXAMPLE.

AND GOD GAVE ME THIS

ABILITY TO RUN.

KIRK CAMERON PLACE THE

ROLE OF D.J. BERRY

ARMSTRONG, AND HE DOES THE

COMMENTARY ABOUT WHAT IS

GOING ON.

HOW MANY DAYS DOES THIS

INSANITY TAKE?

64 DAYS.

64 DAYS!

AND KAREN ACTUALLY

PLAYS NINA, NANCY HORTON'S

BEST FRIEND.

IF HE SENSES THAT YOU

DON'T RESPECT HIM OR

SUPPORT HIM --

THERE IS SOMEBODY YOU

CAN RESPECT WHEN THEY WANT

TO BE WITH YOU.

BUT WHERE DOES NOT

SUPPORTING HIM GET YOU?

WHEN I ASKED DAVE IF I

COULD TELL THE STORY, HE

HAD ONE SIMPLE REQUEST:

MAKE A GOOD MOVIE.

IT WAS THAT SIMPLE.

NOW, NANCY HORTON HAD A

CONDITION.

AND HER CONDITION WAS --

SHE SAID, SCOTTIE, THIS

JOURNEY WAS VERY DIFFICULT

FOR ME.

AND I DON'T WANT YOU TO

SUGAR COAT THIS.

I WANT YOU TO BE HONEST.

Efrem: BECAUSE WHAT

HE CHOOSES TO DO IN LIFE

TAKES A TOLL ON HER?

ABSOLUTELY.

ABSOLUTELY.

I THINK THE CHALLENGE WITH

US MEN, DAVE HIMSELF AND

MYSELF AS WELL, SOMETIMES

WE PUT OUR IDENTITIES IN

THE WRONG THINGS.

WE FOCUS ON THE CAREER

ASPECT.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG IN

BEING DRIVEN, BUT WE FIND

OUR IDENTITY IN A TITLE.

I WANT TO BE THE C.E.O.

IN DAVE'S CASE, I WANT TO

BE A WORLD CLASS RUNNER.

BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU

CAN NO LONGER RUN?

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU

LEAVE THAT JOB?

SO WHEN OUR SELF-ESTEEM IS

WRAPPED UP IN THESE

TITLES, OUR EMOTIONS HAVE

A ROLLER COASTER EFFECT.

SO THE STORY REALLY

FOCUSES AROUND FOLLOWING

CHRIST, AND HAVING YOUR

FOCUS AND YOUR SELF-WORTH

AND YOUR IDENTITY IN JESUS

CHRIST.

I THINK THE BEAUTY OF THIS

IS, YOU KNOW, NOT ONLY IS

IT A MOVIE ABOUT LEGACY

AND MARRIAGE, BUT ITS ALSO

THE FIRST STUDENT-DRIVEN

MOVIE.

SO IMAGINE ALL OF THESE

STUDENTS MAKING A LEGACY

MOVIE THAT WILL HAVE AN

IMPACT FOR YEARS TO COME.

Efrem Mark: THE FILM COMES

OUT ON THURSDAY, IN A

Mark: FINALLY TODAY,

AS ANOTHER DEADLY STORM

THREATENS OUR COUNTRY, WE

HERE AT CBN NEWS WOULD

LIKE TO ENCOURAGE OUR

AUDIENCE TO PRAY FOR THOSE

IN THE PATH OF THAT STORM.

16: "THE PRAYER OF PERSON
