Efrem: THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

CALIFORNIA FIREFIGHTERS

ARE BATTLING ONE OF THE

DEADLIEST GROUP OF FIRES

IN THE STATE'S HISTORY.

BLAZES IN BOTH NORTHERN

AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

HAVE KILLED AT LEAST 11

PEOPLE AND INJURED MORE

THAN 100.

HEATHER SELLS IS ON THIS

STORY.

Heather: IN NORTHERN

CALIFORNIA, THE FIRES HAVE

DESTROYED MORE THAN 1500

HOMES AND BUSINESSES,

INCLUDING ITS FAMOUS

WINERIES.

IT LOOKS AND FEELS

APOCALYPTIC.

IT LOOKS LIKE A BOMB

WENT OFF.

THIS IS THE STUFF YOU

HAVE NIGHTMARES ABOUT,

YOUR HOME BURNING DOWN.

Reporter:

FIREFIGHTERS ARE BATTLING

AN UNUSUALLY LARGE NUMBER

OF BLAZES.

14 IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA,

PLUS A QUICK-MOVING ONE IN

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.

BUT BECAUSE OF THE

INTENSITIES OF THE FLAMES,

THE FIREFIGHTERS HAVE

WORKED PRIMARILY JUST TO

GET PEOPLE OUT O.

>OUT.

LIFE IS OUR PRIMARY

FOCUS HERE.

Heather: THE FIRE HAS

FORCED TENS OF THOUSANDS

OF CALIFORNIANS TO FLEE.

HOSPITAL STAFF HAD TO

EVACUATE PATIENTS ON

GURNIES.

TO THE SOUTH IN ANAHEIM,

PARENTS RUSHED TO PICK UP

THEIR CHILDREN FROM

SCHOOL.

MANY RESIDENTS HAVE

STRUGGLED TO QUICKLY

GATHER THEIR BELONGINGS

AND FLEE THEIR HOMES.

I'M IN SHOCK.

THIS IS YOUR LIFE.

Heather: OCTOBER IS

KNOWN AS THE WORST TIME OF

THE YEAR FOR CALIFORNIA

WILDFIRES.

BUT NORMALLY THE STATE IS

NOT BATTLING SO MANY AT

THE SAME TIME.

WIND AND LOW HUMIDITY HAVE

NOT HELPED.

FIREFIGHTERS SAY THERE IS

NO KNOWN CONNECTION

BETWEEN THE FIRES AND

THEY'RE NOT SURE WHAT

STARTED THEM.

OFFICIALS HAVE RECEIVED

MORE THAN 100 REPORTS OF

MISSING PERSONS, AND

AUTHORITIES WARN THE DEATH

TOLL COULD RISE.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: IN TEXAS,

POLICE HAVE TAKEN A

19-YEAR-OLD STUDENT INTO

CUSTODY AFTER HE KILLED AN

OFFICER.

TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY

IDENTIFIED HOLLIS DANIEL

AS THE SUSPECT.

CAMPUS POLICE WERE MAKING

STUDENT WELFARE CHECKS ON

MONDAY NIGHT.

OFFICERS FOUND DRUGS IN

DANIEL'S ROOM AND BROUGHT

HIM TO THE POLICE STATION

FOR QUESTIONING.

THAT'S WHEN HE PULLED OUT

A GUN AND SHOT AN OFFICER

IN THE HEAD.

THAT OFFICER DIED.

TEXAS GOVERNOR GREG ABBOTT

DID SEND CONDOLENCES TO

THE FAMILY OF THIS

DECEASED OFFICER.

> THE HEAD OF THE

ENVIRONMENTAL AGENCY SAID

THE COAL WAR IS OVER.

IT IS THE CENTER PIECE OF

FORMER PRESIDENT BARACK

OBAMA EFFORT TO STOP

CLIMATE CHANGE.

I THINK THE FOLKS IN

THIS PART OF THE COUNTRY

AND ALL OVER THE COUNTRY,

THEY WANT CERTAINTY.

THEY WANT TO KNOW THAT THE

E.P.A. IS NO LONGER IN THE

BUSINESS OF PICKING

WINNERS AND USERS, OF

TRYING TO COME IN AND USE

REGULATIONS TO DECLARE A

WAR AND A CERTAIN SECTION

OF OUR ECONOMY.

THAT'S NOT HOW A

REGULATORY BODY OUGHT TO

ACT.

Efrem: SCOTT PRUITT

IS SAID TO ANNOUNCE THE

WITHDRAWAL OF THE CLEAN

POWER PLANT TODAY IN

WASHINGTON, ALSO ALONG

WITH A PROPOSAL FOR A NEW

RULE HE SAYS WILL SET

STANDARDS THAT ARE

ACTUALLY ATTAINABLE.

ENVIRONMENT GROUPS ARE

ALREADY CALLING THE

DECISION SHORTSIGHTED.

IN ISRAEL, THE FEAST OF

TABERNACLE CELEBRATION IS

MARKING THE 50th

ANNIVERSARY OF THE SI SIX DAY

WAR.

CBN'S DOCUDRAMA "IN OUR

HANDS" IS TAKING FESTIVAL

FESTIVAL-GOERS BACK IN

TIME IN OUR HISTORY.

GORDON ROBERTSON SAYS

IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND

THE HISTORY, YOU DON'T

UNDERSTAND THE FUTURE.

IT WILL HELP EDUCATE AND

INSPIRE US.

Chris: "IN OUR HANDS:

THE BATTLE FOR JERUSALEM,"

FOLLOWS THE LIVES OF THE

PARATROOPERS WHO CAPTURED

THE OLD CITY IN THE TEMPLE

MOUNT IN 1967.

WE ARE SITTING ON A

RIDGE OVERLOOKING THE

CITY.

THIS IS THE PROPER WAY

TO TELL THE STORY.

WHEN IT IS DONE WITH THE

PARATROOPERS WHO ACTUALLY

FOUGHT FOR THIS CITY, AND

WITH ACTUALLY FOOTAGE AND

THE REENACTMENTS, LIKE "IN

OUR HANDS," IT IS THE

PERFECT WAY TO TELL THE

STORY.

Chris: DAVID PARSONS

SAYS THAT'S WHY THEY MADE

THE FILM A CENTRAL PIECE

OF THIS YEAR'S FEAST.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE

PEOPLE WHO MADE THE FILM

ON STAGE TO HONOR THEM.

IT IS A GREAT MOMENT FOR

US.

Chris: PARSONS SAYS

CHRISTIANS SHOULDN'T

FORGET THE SIGNIFICANCE OF

A UNITED JERUSALEM.

IF THE CITY WAS STILL

DIVIDED LIKE IT WAS FOR

THOSE 19 YEARS OF

JORDANIAN OCCUPATION, AND

YOU CAME HERE TO VISIT,

YOU WOULD HAVE TO GO

THROUGH ALL SORTS OF CHECK

POINTS.

IT IS SO WONDERFUL NOW TO

COME TO A UNITED AND OPEN

AND FREE CITY, AND TO

CELEBRATE THIS NOW, AND

EVEN THE PROPHETIC

SIGNIFICANCE OF WHAT IT

MEANS IN GOD'S TIMETABLE.

Chris: THESE

PARTICIPANTS ENJOYED THE

FILM.

THIS FILM WAS

ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR.

THE DRAM DRAMA WAS WONDERFUL

AND GREAT PERFORMANCES.

Chris: THEY ALSO

RECEIVED D.V.D.s TO TAKE

HOME AND SPREAD THE WORD.

I'M EVEN THINKING OF

TAKING IT BACK HOME AND

SCREENING IT FOR MY YOUTH

AND ALSO AT THE CHURCH.

BUT I THINK THIS VIDEO

WILL HAVE A HUGE IMPACT.

I REALLY WEEPED MANY

TIMES WHEN I SAW IT.

I THOUGHT, I REALLY WANT

TO BRING THIS FILM TO THE

MAINLAND, TO SEE THE

REALITY OF WHAT HAPPENED

HERE IN 1967.

IT SPOKE TO ME AND MY

HEART.

IT HELPED ME TO PRAY EVEN

MORE, TO PRAY FOR

JERUSALEM AND FOR THE

PEOPLE OF JERUSALEM.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD,

WE'RE TAKING YOU TO A CITY

WHERE HOMELESS CAMPS HAVE

MULTIPLIED IN THE LAST FEW

YEARS.

ONE MAN IS TAKING THE

STREETS TO THE CHURCH ART.

WE'LAS A

RESULT.

WE'LL TAKE YOU INSIDE THIS

Efrem: MINISTERS IN

THE U.S. COULD SOON TAKE A

HIT FINANCIALLY.

UNDER A TAX EXEMPTION THAT

HAS BEEN AROUND FOR 60

YEARS, THEY'RE ALLOWED A

TAX-FREE HOUSING

ALLOWANCE.

BUT A FEDERAL JUDGE RULED

IT VIOLATES THE

ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE OF

THE SECOND AMENDMENT.

THE BECKETT FUND FOR

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY ARGUES

THE HOUSING ALLOWANCE

ALLOWS FAITH LEADERS TO

LIVE CLOSE TO THEIR

CHURCHES OR IN UNDERSERVED

COMMUNITIES, AND THAT IS

THE SAME TAX PRINCIPLE

THAT ALLOWS BUSINESSES AND

THE MILITARY TO REIMBURSE

TRAVEL AND OVERSEAS

HOUSING COST OR THAT

PROVIDES HOUSING COSTS TO

TEACHERS AND POLICE WHO

LIVE IN THE COMMUNITIES IN

WHICH THEY SERVE.

> A DALLAS CHURCH IS

REACHING THE HOMELESS

POPULATION BY TAKING THE

MESSAGE TO EXACTLY WHEN

THEY LIVE, IN A PARKING

LOT.

"SOUL CHURCH" HAS

PERFORMED THE MINISTRY FOR

MORE THAN 20 YEARS.

CHARLENE AARON HAS A

FIRSTHAND LOOK.

Charlene: SIX DAYS A

WEEK, THIS DALLAS PARKING

LOT LOOKS PLAIN IN

UNREMARKABLE.

THEN ON SUNDAYS, IT

TRANSFORMS INTO SOMETHING

SPECIAL.

YOU'VE HEARD THE CHURCH'S

RHYME: "HERE'S THE CHURCH,

HERE'S THE STEEPLE, OPEN

THE DOOR AND SEE ALL THE

PEOPLE."

HERE IN THIS HOT DALLAS

PARKING LOT THERE IS A

CHURCH WITHOUT WALLS,

AIMED AT MINISTERS TO THE

INVISIBLE PEOPLE, THE

HOMELESS.

*

Charlene: FOR 22

YEARS, "SOUL CHURCH" HAS

USED PRAISE SONGS TO SEND

A MESSAGE THAT IT IS HERE

TO RECEIVE MIND, BODY, AND

SOUL.

AND THERE IS MUCH FEEDING

TO BE THE DONE.

HOMELESS CAMPS HERE HAVE

MULTIPLIED FROM JUST 40 TO

200 IN THE LAST TWO YEARS.

PASTOR LEON BURKE HEADS

"SOUL CHURCH."

THIS LOOKS LIKE A

PARKING LOT RIGHT NOW, BUT

WE GET HERE AT 5:00 IN THE

MORNING.

WE START SETTING UP ALL OF

THESE DIFFERENT TENTS.

WE'VE GOT ABOUT 10 TENTS

OVER THERE AND WE HAVE A

LIVE BAND EVERY WEEKEND.

Charlene: THE HURTING

AND BROKEN FIND OPEN ARMS

TO WELCOME THEM.

IN MY CHURCH, YOU CAN

COME STRUNG OUT, AND A LOT

OF THEM DO.

THEY'RE BROKEN, AND THEY

WANT TO GET BACK WHERE

THEY WERE.

YOU KNOW.

SOME HAVE BEEN TO CHURCH,

SOME HAVE NEVER BEEN TO

CHURCH, AND THEY JUST COME

HERE TO GET LOVED ON.

SEEKING ACCEPTANCE.

Charlene: SOMETHING

PASTOR BURKE KNOWS WELL.

I WAS FREE-BASING

COCAINE WHEN I GOT SAVED,

AND I DIDN'T CARE IF I

LIVED OR DIED.

I CAN UNDERSTAND WHERE

THEY'RE COMING FROM.

Charlene: HOT MEALS

ARE SERVED ALONG WITH THE

GOSPEL.

AND WHILE THE MENU HAS

CHANGED OVER THE YEARS,

THE MESSAGE REMAINS THE

SAME.

WE START OFF WITH

10 GALLONS OF COFFEE AND A

BASKET OF DOUGHNUTS.

AND NOW IT IS FEEDING

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE, REALLY

GOOD FOOD, LIKE SALMON.

YOU NAME IT.

Charlene: SINCE IT

BEGAN, "SOUL" HAS NEVER

CANCELLED A SERVICE

BECAUSE THOSE WHO NEED IT

ALWAYS SHOW UP.

IF IT IS RAINING, WE

HAVE HEFTY BAGS.

WE POKE OR ARMS AND HANDS

THROUGH IT.

AND WE'LL BE DANCING IN

THE RAIN GETTING CRAZY,

SNOW AND ICE, IT DOESN'T

MATTER.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE ABLE TO

COUNT ON IT.

Charlene: PASTOR

JEFFREY PARKER SAYS THOSE

ATTENDING SERVICES COME

FROM ALL AGES AND

BACKGROUNDS.

THE DEMOGRAPHICS, YOU

HAVE FROM 16-YEAR-OLDS TO

70 AND 80-YEAR-OLDS, IT

REALLY BREAKS MY HEART

WHEN I SEE OUR SENIORS

LIVING AMONGST THIS

POPULATION IN

HOMELESSNESS.

SOME OF THEM WITHOUT ANY

FOOD.

SOME OF THEM VERY SICK.

Charlene: STILL, HE

SEES THE MINISTRY MAKING A

STRONG IMPACT.

WE'VE BEGUN TO SEE THE

TESTIMONIES OF THEM

GETTING JOBS NOW AND

THEY'RE MOVING INTO THEIR

OWN APARTMENT NOW, AND

THEM SHOWING UP AT BIBLE

STUDY NOW.

ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE

EVIDENCE AND SIGNS THAT

WHAT THEY PROFESSED ON

SUNDAY, THEY'RE BEGAN TO

WALK IT OUT DURING THE

WEEK.

WE SEE LIFE CHANGE TAKING

PLACE HERE.

Charlene: DEBRA ONCE

BLAMED GOD FOR THE DEATH

OF HER TWO CHILDREN AND

WANTED NOTHING TO DO WITH

CHURCH.

AFTER SERVING TIME FOR

DRUGS AND PROSTITUTION,

THE OUTDOOR CHURCH

LITERALLY CALLED OUT TO

HER.

SHE DECIDED TO PAY A

VISIT.

I ACTUALLY STOMPED OVER

HERE TO TELL THEM, TURN

YOUR STUPID MUSIC OFF.

AND I WALKED ON TO THIS

PARKING LOT, AND I DIDN'T

REALIZE I WAS IN CHURCH.

AND IT DREW ME IN.

AND I SAW PEOPLE -- I SAW

LOVE, IS WHAT I SAW.

AND WITH THAT I SAW NO

JUDGMENT.

EVERYBODY WAS JUST LIKE

ME, BROKEN, JUST BROKEN.

AND I STARTED STAYING

LATER AND LATER, YOU KNOW?

AND EVENTUALLY I FOUND

JESUS ON THIS PARKING LOT.

AND NOW I KNOW GOD

POSITIONED ME HERE BECAUSE

HE KNEW I WAS NOT READY TO

WALK INTO A CHURCH WITH

WALLS.

I COULDN'T DO IT.

Charlene: TODAY DEBRA

SERVES AT THE CHURCH.

YOU KNOW, I STILL HAVE

A LONG WAY TO GO.

I'M STILL A MESS, BUT I'M

NOT WHERE I WAS.

Charlene: A WORK IN

PROGRESS?

I AM.

I AM.

AND IT IS ALL BECAUSE OF

THE LORD.

I GAVE HIM NOTHING AND HE

STILL GAVE ME HIS

EVERYTHING.

AND I CAN'T THANK HIM

ENOUGH.

Charlene: JUST SOME

OF THE REASONS AND

MIRACLES THAT KEEP BURKE

SPREADING HOPE ONE SOUL AT

A TIME.

ON ANY GIVEN WEEKEND,

THERE WILL BE 30, 40

PEOPLE THAT COME UP TO

GIVE PRAYER, COMMIT

THEMSELVES TO THE LORD.

I JUST PRAY THAT THIS GOES

ON FOR A LONG TIME.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS, DALLAS.

Efrem: COMING UP,

3/4ths OF ALL HEROIN

ADDICTS STARTED WITH

PRESCRIPTION PAINKILLERS.

SO WHAT IS BEING DONE TO

FIGHT AMERICA'S OPIOID

ADDICTION?

YOU'LL FIND OUT AFTER

Efrem: MORE AND MORE

INFANTS ARE BEING BORN

INFANTS ARE BEING BORN

ADDICTED TO DRUGS.

THAT'S A FINDING FROM A

RECENT STUDY FROM THE

CENTERS FOR DISEASE

CONTROL.

CHILDREN EXPOSED TO DRUGS

IN THE WOMB HAS QUADRUPLED

OVER THE LAST 15 YEARS.

THE CONDITION IS CALLED

NEONATAL ABSTINENCE

SYNDROME, OR N.A.S.

AND THE NUMBER OF INFANTS

BORN WITH N.A.S. HAS

SKYROCKETED.

SOME HAVE REPORTED RATES

EIGHT TIMES OF NATIONAL

AVERAGE.

THAT IS ACCORDING TO

TODAY'S RECENT NUMBERS.

THE RECENT DISTRICT

ATTORNEY-GENERAL'S OFFICE

IS SUING OPIOID

MANUFACTURERS TO COMBAT

THAT PROBLEM.

MEANWHILE, AN ESTIMATED

91 PEOPLE DIE EVERY DAY IN

AMERICA FROM OPIOID OVER

DOSES.

ALTHOUGH THE REAL NUMBER

IS LIKELY MUCH HIGHER.

OPIOIDS ARE A TYPE OF

DRUGS THAT INCLUDE HEROIN

AND ITS CHEMICAL COUSINS,

PRESCRIPTION PAINKILLERS.

LORIE JOHNSON SHOWS US THE

WIDESPREAD EPIDEMIC IS

ESPECIALLY BAD IN THE

HEARTLAND OF OHIO.

Lorie: OHIO POLICE

DISCOVER A BOY WITH HIS

GRANDMOTHER AND HER

BOYFRIEND BOTH OVERDOSED

ON HEROIN.

HEROIN IS TRANSFORMING

WHOLESOME, SMALL TOWNS

ACROSS THE BUCKEYE STATE.

FOR EXAMPLE, HERE IN

MARION, ONE OF THE

HARDEST-HIT AREAS, POLICE

RESPONDED TO 12 HEROIN

OVERDOSES IN JUST THREE

DAYS.

MATT GOSERT FOUGHT A

HEROIN ADDICTION FOR FIVE

YEARS.

AND THE DRUGS, THEY

COMPLETELY DEADEN ANY

EMOTIONS THAT YOU HAVE.

I TURNED TO CRIME.

I TURNED TO ANYTHING I HAD

TO DO TO GET THE DRUGS.

I STARTED SELLING DRUGS.

Lorie: MATT'S DESCENT

STARTED WITH PRESCRIPTION

PAINKILLERS.

IT IS ALMOST THE SAME

THING, EXCEPT FOR HEROIN

IS JUST STRONGER AND IT IS

CHEAPER AND IT'S MORE

AVAILABLE, WHICH IS THE

SCARY PART.

Lorie: OHIO

ATTORNEY-GENERAL MIKE

DUWINE CREATED A SPECIFIC

HEROIN UNIT TO TAKE ON

THIS EPIDEMIC.

HE SAYS THE DRUG NO LONGER

COMES FROM FAR AWAY PLACES

LIKE AFGHANISTAN.

A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO,

THE MEXICAN CARTELS

DECIDED TO GROW THE

POPPIES HERE, THEY TURN IT

INTO HEROIN, AND THEY

BRING IT ACROSS OUR

SOUTHERN BORDER AND THEY

BRING IT INTO OHIO AND

OTHER STATES.

Lorie: THE DESIRE FOR

THE ULTIMATE HIGH HAS LED

TO EVEN DEADLIERLY CON

CONDUCTIONS, INCLUDING

FENTANYL AND ELEPHANT

TRANQUILIZERS CARFENTANIL.

WE'LL SEE SOMETIMES IN

A WEEKEND, ONE COMMUNITY

WHERE THERE WILL BE FIVE,

10, 15 PEOPLE DIE.

Lorie: HE WANTS

EDUCATION ON THIS PROBLEM

STARTING AS EARLY AS

KINDERGARTEN.

AND HE HAS ALSO GONE TO

OHIO'S CHURCH LEADERS FOR

HELP.

THE PROGRAMS THAT WORK,

THE TREATMENT THAT WORKS,

MANY TIMES HAVE A

FAITH-BASED COMPONENT PART

TO IT.

Lorie: MATT IS VOUCH

FOR THAT.

AFTER A NUMBER OF FAILED

ATTEMPTS, THE CHRISTIAN

TREATMENT CENTER FINALLY

MADE THE DIFFERENCE.

I BELIEVE THAT JESUS

CHRIST IS THE ONLY ANSWER.

Lorie: HE NOW LEADS A

CHRISTIAN RECOVERY

MINISTRY THAT WORKS WITH

THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL AND

PASTORS ACROSS OHIO TO

ENSURE THAT EACH CHURCH IN

THE STATE OFFERS AN

ADDICTION SPECIALIST.

THERE IS SOMEBODY IN

EVERY CHURCH IN THIS STATE

THAT HAS BEEN AFFECTED BY

ADDICTION, I CAN GUARANTEE

IT.

Lorie: MANY BELIEVE

HEROIN ADDICTION STARTS IN

THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE.

NOW PHYSICIANS ARE ONLY

ALLOWED TO PRESCRIBE ONE

WEEK WORTH OF PAINKILLERS.

THE LAW ONLY APPLIES TO

SHORT-TERM PAIN RELIEF,

SUCH AS THE KIND FOLLOWING

SURGERY.

BEFORE, DOCTORS WOULD

OFTEN PRESCRIBE ENOUGH FOR

A FULL MONTH.

WE HAD A NUMBER OF

PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES

THAT DEVELOPED PAIN MEDS,

AND THEY WERE PUSHING

THOSE OUT AND TELLING THE

DOCTORS, THESE ARE NOT

VERY ADDICTIVE.

IT TURNS OUT THEY ARE VERY

ADDICTIVE.

Lorie: DOCTORS CAN

STILL PRESCRIBE

PAINKILLERS FOR PEOPLE

WITH CHRONIC OR LONG-TERM

PAIN, BUT IS THAT THE

RIGHT TREATMENT?

DR. KRISHNA AT THE OHIO

STATE MEDICAL CENTER SAYS

THEY CAN COST MEMORY LOSS

AND CONSTIPATION.

THESE PAIN MEDICATIONS

ARE NOT THAT EFFECTIVE IF

YOU TAKE THEM LONG-TERM.

PLUS, WHAT IT DOES IS IT

INHIBITS THE BODY'S

INTERNAL CONTROL SYSTEMS.

Lorie: THE DOCTOR

RECOMMENDS NON-OPIOID PAIN

RELIEF, INCLUDING SURGERY,

ACUPUNCTURE, STEROID

INJECTIONS, WEIGHT LOSS

AND EXERCISE, HEAT, AND AN

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DIET,

HIGH IN VEGETABLES AND LOW

IN SUGAR.

STILL, PAIN MEDS ARE

EXTREMELY COMMON AMONG THE

100 MILLION AMERICANS WITH

CHRONIC PAIN.

IT WAS CONSTANT.

IT WAS ALL THE TIME.

I NEVER HAD ANY TIME

WITHOUT PAIN.

Lorie: DESPITE HER

CHRONIC BACK PAIN, ANDREA

FLANNERY REFUSED TO TAKE

OPIOIDS.

IT IS TOO EASY TO GET

HOOKED ON THE PAIN

MEDICINE.

I KNOW E A LO A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO

HAVE AND IT DESTROYS YOUR

LIFE.

Lorie: INSTEAD,

DR. KRISHNA INSERTED A

FALL ELECTRODE AND IT

BLOCKS THE PAIN IMPULSE.

IT WOULD BE FORTUNATE

SOMEONFOR SOMEONEWHO HAS BACK PAIN AND IS

TAKING A SIGNIFICANT

AMOUNT OF PAIN MEDICATION.

Lorie: MOST WITH

STIMULATORS EXPERIENCE

SOME LESSENED PAIN, ABOUT

A THIRD, PAIN-FREE.

I DON'T EVEN NOTICE I

HAVE IT IN.

YOU GET USED TO THE

FEELING.

Lorie: SO WHILE THE

HEROIN CRISIS RAGES,

PEOPLE ARE FIGHTING BACK

WITH AWARENESS,

CHRIST-CENTERED

TREATMENTS, AND MINIMIZING

PAIN PILLS.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: FOUR DAYS

AROUND THE CLOCK PRAYER IN

THE NATION'S CAPITAL ENDED

ON MIEWFLTD WIT MONDAY WITH AN EVENT

CALLED "RISE UP."

WENDY GRIFFITH IS THAT.

THERE.

Wendy: AN INCREDIBLE,

POWERFUL DAY OF PRAYER

HERE ON THE D.C. MALL.

DESPITE THE RAIN, TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF WOMEN, AND A

LOT OF MEN, HAVE COME OUT

TO PRAY, TO CRY OUT TO GOD

ON BEHALF OF THEIR

CHILDREN, THEIR FAMILIES,

AND OUR NATION.

IT IS AN HOUR OF

BIRTHING SOMETHING FOR

AMERICA.

Wendy: LOU ENGEL SAYS

THIS EVENT WAS BIRNLD I BIRTHED IN

A DREAM, WHERE HE SAW A

HUGE GATHERING OF WOMEN TO

SAVE THE NATION.

THERE WERE CERTAIN

POWERS OF DARKNESS IN

AMERICA THAT COULD ONLY BE

BROKEN WHY WOMEN.

IT WAS THE HOUR WHERE

WITCHES WORLDWIDE WERE

CURSING PRESIDENT TRUMP

AND THIS FEMINIST MOVEMENT

RISING THAT IS NOT FOUNDED

ON THE WORD OF GOD AND IS

FUNDING PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, AND I KNEW IT

WAS TIME TO CALL THE ES

ESTHERS.

Wendy: NICOLE C.

MULLEN SAYS SHE FELT

COMPELLED TO BE HERE.

WE ARE CALLING DEBRAS

AND ESTHERS TO COME ON

BEHALF OF BREAKING DOWN

THE RACIAL DIVIDE THAT

EXISTS.

WHEN THEY PUT THAT CALL

OUT, I WAS LIKE

ABSOLUTELY.

ABSOLUTELY.

IF I HAVE TO GRAB MY

BICYCLE, I'M COMING, YOU

KNOW?

THE CHURCH SOMETIMES

HAS HAD A PROBLEM WITH

WOMEN LEADING.

I THINK IT IS BEAUTIFUL

THAT WE CAN BE FEMININE

AND WE CAN BE LEADERS AND

WE CAN FOLLOW CHRIST AND

BRING THE CHURCH INTO ITS

HIGHER CALLING.

WE ARE GOING TO FIGHT

FOR TRUTH!

FEM NIST FEMINISTS COME TOGETHER

BUT ONLY TO BLESS WOMEN.

IT IS LIKE A MARCH

AFTER THE INAUGURATION,

AND IT IS STANDING ON WHAT

THE BIBLE SAYS WOMEN ARE.

WE'RE NOT INDEPENDENT, BUT

WE'RE DEPEP DEPENDENT ON GOD.

Wendy: IN AN AGE

WHERE ABORTION RIGHTS HAVE

COME TO BE EQUATED IN THE

MINDS OF MANY WITH WOMEN'S

RIGHTS, THESE WOMEN CRIED

OUT TO GOD TO END LEGAL

ABORTION IN AMERICA.

THEY PUT TAPE OVER THEIR

MOUTHS WITH THE WORD

"LIFE" TO REPRESENT THE

SILENT CRIES OF THE

UNBORN.

GOD IS SAYING IT IS THE

HOUR FOR WOMEN.

AND IN MANY WAYS, WOMEN

TURN THE TIDE OF HISTORY.

WE NEED YOU, WOMEN OF GOD,

RIGHT NOW TO GIVE BIRTH TO

A NEW DAY OF SALVATION IN

AMERICA.

Wendy: WENDY

GRIFFITH, CBN NEWS, ON THE

NATIONAL MALL.

Efrem: WITH THAT, WE

LEAVE YOU WITH THIS

THOUGHT TODAY: "THE

GREATEST CHALLENGE IN LIFE

IS TO LIVE OUT WHAT GOD

PUT INSIDE."

THAT IS GOING TO DO IT FOR

THIS EDITION OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

COMPANY.

WE'LL JOIN YOU RIGHT BACK

HERE COME TOMORROW.

GOOD-BYE AND GOD BLESS

YOU.
