Efrem: THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

THE PRESIDENT AND SENATE

MAJORITY LEADER, MITCHELL

McCONNELL, APPEARED

TOGETHER IN THE ROSE

GARDEN ON MONDAY.

THE PRESIDENT IS PUSHING

AHEAD WITH HIS PLANS ON

GETTING TAX REFORM

COMPLETE BY THE END OF THE

YEAR.

McCONNELL SAYS HE IS ON

BOARD, BUT CONGRESS FACES

CHALLENGES IN GETTING IT

DONE BEFORE THIS YEAR IS

OVER.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THIS

STORY.

Charlene: PRESIDENT

TRUMP AND SENATE MAJORITY

LEADER MITCHELL

McCONNELL PROMISING

SWEEPING CHANGES BY WAY OF

TAX REFORM, WHILE ALSO

INSISTING THEIR

RELATIONSHIP IS

OUTSTANDING, DESPITE THEIR

PUBLIC DISAGREEMENTS IN

THE LAST FEW MONTHS.

President Trump: WE

ARE PROBABLY NOW, DESPITE

WHAT WE READ -- WE'RE

PROBABLY NOW, I THINK, AT

LEAST AS FAR AS I'M

CONCERNED, CLOSER THAN

EVER BEFORE.

THE RELATIONSHIP IS VERY

GOOD.

WE'RE FIGHTING FOR THE

SAME THING.

WE'RE FIGHTING FOR LOWER

TAXES, BIG TAX CUTS, THE

BIGGEST TAX CUTS IN THE

HISTORY OF OUR NATION.

Charlene: McCONNELL

SAYS HE IS ON BOARD AND

HIS GOAL OF TAX REFORM BY

THE END OF THE YEAR.

I WANT TO UNDERSCORE

WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID.

WE HAVE THE SAME AGENDA.

WE TALK FREQUENTLY.

WE DON'T GIVE YOU A

READOUT EVERY TIME WE HAVE

A CONVERSATION.

BUT FREQUENTLY WE TALK ON

THE WEEKENDS ABOUT THE

ISSUES THAT ARE BEFORE US.

OBVIOUSLY PASSING THE

BUDGET, WHICH ENABLES TAX

REFORM AND TAX REDUCTION,

COMES NEXT.

Charlene: THE

PRESIDENT HAS ALSO VOICED

FRUSTRATION WITH THE

SENATE IN FAILING TO KEEP

HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISE TO

REPEAL AND REPLACE

OBAMACARE, BUT HE ISN'T

GIVING UP.

President Trump:

WE'RE WORKING VERY HARD TO

GET THE TAX CUTS.

WE'LL CONTINUE TO WORK

HARD TO GET THE HEALTH

CARE COMPLETED.

Charlene: FOR NOW,

TAX REFORM WILL BE FRONT

AND CENTER.

CONGRESS FACES TOUGH

CHALLENGES IN GETTING A

TAX BILL DONE THIS YEAR.

IT IS NOT CLEAR YET IF ALL

OF THE REPUBLICAN SENATORS

WILL VOTE FOR IT, BUT MANY

ARE ALREADY ON BOARD.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: DOZENS OF ISIS

FIGHTERS WERE KILLED BY

FORCES IN YEMEN ON MONDAY.

THE PENTAGON SAYS

AIRSTRIKES TARGETED TWO

CAMPS AND DISRUPTED THE

TRAINING OF TWO CAMPS.

NUCLEAR WAR MAY BREAK OUT

AT ANY MOMENT ACCORDING TO

NORTH KOREA'S DEPUTY U.N.

AMBASSADOR.

HE SAYS NORTH KOREA HAS

BEEN SUBJECTED TO AN

EXTREME AND DIRECT NUCLEAR

THREAT FROM THE UNITED

STATES AND HAS A RIGHT TO

SELF DEFENSE.

THEY HAVE AN ATOMIC BOMB,

AN H-BOMB, AND

INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC

ROCKETS.

> PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAYS

HIS COUNTRY'S BEST FRIEND

AND ALLY ARE CHRISTIANS.

HE SAYS ISRAEL IS THE

SAFEST PLACE FOR

CHRISTIANS TO WORK IN THE

MIDDLE EAST, AND CALLS OUT

IRAN FOR SEVERELY

PERSECUTING BELIEVERS.

PASTORS ARE JAILED FOR

NO REASON -- NO REASON

OTHER THAN FOR BEING

CHRISTIAN LEADERS.

CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN THE

LAST -- YOU HEAR THIS --

CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN

LASHED FOR SIPPING WINE

DURING PRAYER SERVICES.

CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN

BRUTALLY TORTURED FOR

DOING NOTHING MORE THAN

PRACTICING THEIR FAITH.

Efrem: NETANYAHU ALSO

DISCUSSED HOW ISRAEL IS

BEING A LIGHT TO THE

NATIONS BY SENDING

HUMANITARIAN RELIEF ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

> CHRIS MITCHELL IS

JOINING US RIGHT NOW FROM

JERUSALEM.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

WHY DOES NETANYAHU SAY

CHRISTIANS ARE ISRAEL'S

NUMBER ONE ALLY?

Chris: EVANGELICAL

CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN

SUPPORTING ISRAEL FOR

DECADES.

AND PAT ROBERTSON WAS ONE

OF THE FIRST EVANGELICAL

LEADERS TO SHOW HIS

SUPPORT FOR THE JEWISH

STATE, AND THAT HAS BEEN

FOLLOWED BY HIS SON,

GORDON ROBERTSON.

BUT ACROSS THE EVANGELICAL

WORLD, THE UNITED STATES,

AROUND THE WORLD YOU CAN

SEE SUCH A PASSIONATE

SUPPORT FOR THE STATE OF

ISRAEL.

Efrem: YOU TALK ABOUT

HOW ISRAEL IS BLESSING THE

WORLD.

HOW AND WHERE IS ISRAEL

SENDING RELIEF RIGHT NOW?

Chris: WHEN I ASKED

THE PRIME MINISTER THAT

QUESTION, YOU COULD TELL

THIS WAS JUST SORT OF PART

OF HIS SOUL.

HE ANSWERED AND SAID

BECAUSE IT IS THE

PROPHECIES AS WE SHOWED IN

THAT STORY, IT IS ISRAEL

BECOMING A LIGHT TO THE

NATIONS.

YOU CAN SEE THE

HUMANITARIAN RELIEF WORK

RIGHT AFTER THE MEXICO

EARTHQUAKE JUST A FEW

WEEKS AGO.

THEY CAME AND HELPED

AMERICANS AFTER HURRICANE

HARVEY, AFTER HURRICANE

IRMA.

THEY RESPONDED IN NEPAL

AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE THERE

A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.

AND YOU CAN SEE ACTUALLY

ISRAELI VOLUNTEERS HELPING

SYRIAN REFUGEES ON THE

GREEK ISLANDS, WHEN THERE

WAS JUST A FLOOD OF SYRIAN

REFUGEES INTO EUROPE.

IT IS PART OF THE ISRAELI

AND JEWISH D.N.A.

Efrem: I WANT TO TALK

A LITTLE ABOUT IRAN.

WE HEAR ALL OF THESE

REPORTS ABOUT IRAN TRYING

TO GAIN MORE CONTROL IN

THE MIDDLE EAST.

HOW IS ISRAEL RESPONDING?

Chris: WELL, ISRAEL

IS DOING WHAT IT CAN.

THEY'RE TRYING TO PREVENT

IRAN FROM COMING UP CLOSE

TO THE BORDER WITH SYRIA

ON THE GOLAN HEIGHTS.

THEY'VE DONE A NUMBER OF

MILITARY STRIKES IN THERE

AGAINST IRAN, AND ANY

PROXIES OF IRAN,

HEZBOLLAH.

THAT IS PROBABLY ONE OF

THEIR NUMBER ONE MILITARY

GOALS RIGHT NOW IS TO

PREVENT IRAN FROM GETTING

MILITARY BASES AND A FOOT

HOLD RIGHT ON ISRAEL'S

DOORSTEP.

Efrem: CHRIS, THANK

YOU.

Chris: GREAT TO BE

WITH YOU.

Efrem: CALIFORNIA

RESIDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO

RETURN HOME AFTER SOME OF

THE MOST DEVASTATING

WILDFIRES IN THE STATE'S

HISTORY.

THE WILDFIRES KILLED MORE

THAN 40 PEOPLE AND TOOK

CREWS MORE THAN A WEEK TO

CONTAIN.

SOME HOMES WERE LEFT

BARELY STANDING, AND

OTHERS HAVE BEEN REDUCED

TO ASH.

LIGHTER WINDS GAVE THE

FIRE CREWS A CHANCE TO

COMBAT THE FLAMES AND

ALLOW RESIDENTS TO RETURN

HOME.

> THE NFL PROTESTS ARE

BACK IN THE HEADLINES NOW

THAT FORMER SAN FRANCISCO

49ers QUARTERBACK COLIN

KAEPERNICK FILED A GRIEVE

GRIEVANCE AGAINST THE

LEAGUE.

HE SAYS IT WAS HIS WAY TO

PROTEST RACIAL INJUSTICES

AND POLICE BRUTALITY, BUT

THE MOOD ANGERED SOME,

INCLUDING PRESIDENT TRUMP

WHO SAID PLAYERS WHO TAKE

A KNEE SHOULD BE FIRED.

T.D. JAKES TOLD CBN NEWS

HE SUPPORTS THE PLAYERS'

RIGHT TO PROTEST, JUST AS

HE SUPPORTS THE RIGHT OF

THOSE WHO CRITICIZE THEM.

WHEN YOU ARE A

LIGHTNING ROD AND YOU

STRIKE AN ISSUE AND YOU

SET IT OFF, DON'T EXPECT

THE PUBLIC TO CLAP.

NOBODY CLAPPED FOR ROSA

PARKS WHEN SHE SAT IN THE

SEAT SHE WASN'T SUPPOSED

TO SIT IN.

I HOPE WE CAN GET INTO A

DEEPER CONVERSATION AS TO

WHAT MADE THE KNEEL HAPPEN

IN THE FIRST PLACE, RATHER

THAN THE WEAKER

CONVERSATION, WHICH IS IS

THIS MISMANNERS A PROBLEM.

YOU CAN CRITICIZE THE

COUNTRY AND STILL LOVE THE

COUNTRY.

Efrem: YOU CAN HEAR

MORE OF OUR DISCUSSION

WITH BISHOP T.D. JAKES AT

OUR WEBSITE,

CBNNEWS.COM.

> STILL AHEAD, THE

ORGANIZATION THAT IS

LAUNCHING A COUNTER-ATTACK

AGAINST THE ENEMY THAT HAS

CLAIMED THE LIVES OF OUR

VETERANS.

HEAD TO THE DROP ZONE FOR

"OPERATION RESTORED

WARRIOR."

WE'VE GOT THAT STORY

COMING UP AFTER THIS.

Efrem: IT'S BEEN

ESTIMATED THAT A MILITARY

VETERAN COMMITS SUICIDE

EACH HOUR OF EVERY DAY.

BUT ONE ORGANIZATION HOPES

TO CHANGE THAT BY HELPING

VETS FIGHT THEIR WAY BACK

TO RESTORATION.

MARK MARTIN IS HERE TO

BRING US THAT STORY.

Reporter: VETERANS

FIGHTING OVERSEAS NOT ONLY

SUFFER PHYSICALLY, BUT

EMOTIONALLY AS WELL.

HIDDEN BATTLE SCARS THAT

MAKE LIFE DIFFICULT BACK

HOME.

THAT'S WHERE "OPERATION

RESTORE WARRIOR" COMES IN.

WITH IT'S WIDE OPEN SPACES

AND LARGE HORSE CORRAL,

THE FOUR EAGLE RANCH

REPRESENTS SOMETHING OUT

OF THE OLD WEST.

ORGANIZERS OF "OPERATION

RESTORED WARRIOR" SAY IT

IS A LOCATION WHERE

HEALING TAKES PLACE.

IT'S CORE CHRISTIAN

MINISTRY IS THE FIVE-DAY

PROGRAM CALLED THE DROP

ZONE.

THE DROP ZONE IN ENEMY

TERRITORY IS WHERE YOU GO

AND TAKE THAT GROUND.

WE REFER TO THINGS AS

RESTREETS.

I'M GOING TO GO TO A

RETREAT.

AND THAT DIDN'T SIT WELL

WITH THE MILITARY MEN --

WELL, WHY ARE WE

RETREATING.

HOW ABOUT IF WE REGAIN

GROUND.

WE CALL IT A

COUNTER-ATTACK.

AND THAT APPEALS TO

WARRIORS.

Reporter: THE

COUNTER-ATTACK IS

THREE-FOLD: RESCUE,

REBUILD, AND RESTORE.

WARRIORS COME TO THIS

PLACE BECAUSE THEY'RE

LOOKING FOR HOPE.

OFTEN THE ENEMY HAS JUST

BEAT THEM DOWN.

THIS IS A PLACE WHERE THEY

KNOW THERE IS SOME HOPE.

AND WHEN HE GET HERE, THEY

FIND OUT THIS IS WHERE

HEALING IS.

AND HOPE AND HEALING IS

HERE BECAUSE JESUS IS

HERE.

Reporter: THE

INTENSIVE PROGRAM TARGETS

AREAS OF THE HEART THAT

NEED HEALING.

PSYCHOLOGIST REVEALS JESUS

HEALS, AND SAY IT HAS BEEN

PROVEN HUNDREDS OF TIMES.

FOR PARTICIPANTS LIKE PAUL

WILLIAMS, THE PROGRAM CAN

BE A LITERAL LIFESAVER.

JULY 2nd OF THIS

YEAR, I HAD WRITTEN A

NOTE, AND I WAS READY TO

GO.

AND IT JUST DIDN'T HAPPEN.

YOU KNOW?

I WENT BACK TO MY TRUCK TO

GO GET THE GUN, AND IT

WASN'T THERE.

UM...SO I JUST STARTED

PRAISING JESUS WITH MY

PRAISE AND WORSHIP MUSIC.

AND I SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT?

I NEED TO GIVE THIS O.R.

W. "RESTORE WARRIOR" A

GOOD SHOT.

I WAS ABLE TO OPEN UP TO

PAUL, THE FOUNDER OF O.R.

W. ABOUT ALL OF THE TRASH

I'VE BEEN CRAIRG.

CARRYING.

IT FELT SO GOOD TO JUST

LET IT ALL OUT.

I CAN'T THANK THIS

ORGANIZATION ENOUGH.

I CAME HERE FIGHTING FOR

MY LIFE.

AND I'M GOING TO WALK AWAY

A CHAMPION.

SO I OWE THEM A LOT AND

I'M SUPER THANKFUL FOR IT.

AROUND 2008 I FELT LIKE

JESUS PUT IN MY HEART THAT

HE HAD GIFTED ME MY WHOLE

LIFE TO RESCUE PEOPLE.

AND I FELT LIKE I HAD A

UNIQUE GIFT OF HEALING AS

WELL.

I HAD NO IDEA IT HAD TO DO

WITH ANYTHING SPIRITUAL.

IN ABOUT 2008, I JUST FELT

THIS NUDGE THAT I HAD TO

DO SOMETHING.

O.R.W., OUR FOCUS IS TO

HEAL.

WE BRING JESUS INTO THAT

HEALING PROCESS.

Reporter: ARMY

VETERAN BRAXTON DUNBAR

DEALT WITH MANY THINGS,

INCLUDING SUICIDAL

THOUGHTS, BEFORE COMING TO

O.R.W.

I WAS DEFINITELY A

BROKEN MAN.

A LOT OF DEPRESSION AND

ANXIETY, A LOT OF ANGER.

A WHOLE LOT OF ANGER.

AND I JUST FELT LOST.

I REALLY JUST DIDN'T KNOW

WHERE MY PLACE WAS.

DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO FIND MY

PLACE, EITHER.

Reporter: DUNBAR

ACCEPTED CHRIST DURING THE

DROP ZONE, AND DECIDED TO

GET BAPTIZED.

THE SAME INDIVIDUAL

THAT PRAYED WITH ME,

JORDAN, AND HE SAID YOU

ACCEPTED HIM YESTERDAY AND

YOU VERBALLY ACCEPTED HIM

INTO HIS LIFE, DO YOU WANT

TO SHOW THE ACTION OF IT.

AND I SAID, ABSOLUTELY.

I WOULD LOVE TO.

Reporter: RETIRED AIR

FORCE CHAPLAIN STEVE FRICK

ALSO RECEIVED HEALING

THROUGH THE PROGRAM.

O.R.W. DOESN'T JUST

HELP.

THEY HEAL.

THAT'S A LITTLE HARD TO

HEAR WHEN YOU FIRST GET

HERE, BUT I'M TELLING YOU,

IT'S TRUE.

Reporter: IN ADDITION

TO POWERFUL SESSIONS

BUILDING UP THE FAITH OF

THE MEN, THE DROP ZONE

ALLOWS TIME FOR

RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES,

LIKE FLY-FISHING.

WHAT CAN THEY LEARN FROM

THIS?

HE SAYS IT NOURISHES THE

SOUL, AMONG OTHER THINGS.

THE REASON WE DO THE

ACTIVITIES IS BECAUSE IT

IS PART OF A SPIRITUAL

LONGING FOR A MAN TO HAVE

ADVENTURE IN HIS LIFE.

IT IS ONE OF THE CORE

DESIRES OF A MAN.

AND SO AS PART OF THIS

RESTORATION PROCESS, WE

WANT TO REMIND THEM THAT

THERE IS ADVENTURE OUT

THERE.

Reporter: RETIRED

COMMAND SERGEANT MAJOR

CHRIS FIELDS IS THE DROP

ZONE FIELD FACILITATOR.

HE ALSO CONTEMPLATING

TAKING HIS LIFE AND LOST

FELLOW SERVICE MEMBERS TO

SUICIDE.

DON'T WAIT ANOTHER

MOMENT TO REACH OUT AND

ASK FOR HELP.

I USED TO THINK THAT I WAS

10 FEET TALL AND

BULLET-PROOF.

I ATE BARBED WIRE IN THE

MORNING, BUT WHEN I

REACHED OUT FOR HELP, I'M

STRONGER THAN I EVER WAS.

AND IT JUST TAKES ONE

MOMENT.

ONE MOMENT TO SAY, OKAY,

LET ME SEE WHAT THIS IS

ALL ABOUT.

AND THEN LET JESUS TAKE IT

FROM THERE.

Reporter: MARK

MARTIN, CBN NEWS, WALCOTT,

COLORADO.

Efrem: UP NEXT, LEARN

WHATNOT TO SAY AND HOW YOU

CAN HELP CANCER PATIENTS

FIGHTING THE OFTEN DEADLY

DISEASE.

Efrem: IT IS A WORD

NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR:

CANCER.

YET STATISTICS SHOW HALF

OF ALL OF MEN AND A THIRD

OF ALL OF WOMEN WILL GET

SOME FORM OF THE DISEASE.

IN MANY CASES, PEOPLE

SIMPLY SUFFER IN SILENCE

AS THEY TRY TO COPE WITH

THAT ILLNESS.

NOW AS LORIE JOHNSON SHOWS

US, AN ORGANIZATION IS

TEACHING CHURCHES HOW TO

HELP CANCER PATIENTS.

HELLO, SHEILA.

HI, HOW ARE YOU YOU, DEAR?

Lorie: AFTER YEARS OF

COUNSELLING CANCER

PATIENTS, REVEREND PERCY

MCCRAY KNOWS THEY BEAR A

BURDEN UNLIKE PEOPLE

BEARING OTHER ILLNESSES.

CANCER PATIENTS,

PARTICULARLY PEOPLE OF

FAITH, ARE STRUGGLING WITH

THEIR FAITH AT THAT POINT.

WHAT DID I DO WRONG?

Lorie: THANKS TO HIS

TRAINING, REVEREND MCCRAY

KNOWS THE IMPORTANCE OF

ENCOURAGEMENT.

AND THEN ONE CONVERSATION

HELPED HIM REALIZE OTHERS

NEED TO LEARN THESE

SKILLS, TOO.

THE PATIENTS SHARED

WITH ME THAT THEY WERE

IMPACTED MORE BY THE

PASTORAL CARE SUPPORT THEY

RECEIVED AT THE BEDSIDE OF

OUR HOSPITAL THAN THEY DID

AT THEIR LOCAL CHURCH.

Lorie: TYPICALLY,

CHURCHES ARE VERY

EFFECTIVE WHEN IT COMES TO

HELPING PEOPLE WITH ALL

KINDS OF PROBLEMS, LIKE

FINANCIAL OR MARITAL, BUT

OFTEN FALLS SHORT WHEN

DEALING WITH HEALTH

ISSUES, ESPECIALLY CANCER.

THEY REALLY STRUGGLE

WITH WHAT DO I SAY, WHEN

DO I SAY IT, AND HOW DO I

SAY IT?

SO ONE OF THE NUMBER ONE

DYNAMICS THAT TAKES PLACE

IS THEY BEGIN TO FEEL A

SENSE OF ISOLATION, AND

PEOPLE BEGIN TO AVOID THEM

ALL TOGETHER.

Lorie: TO BREACH THIS

GAP, REVEREND MCCRAY AND

HIS ASSOCIATES AT THE

CANCER TREATMENT CENTERS

OF AMERICA MINISTER HOW TO

THEIR BROTHERS AND

SISTERS.

THEY OFFER FREE TRAINING

FOR TWO PEOPLE FROM A

CHURCH WHO USE WHAT THEY

LEARN HERE TO RAISE UP

CANCER MINISTRIES IN THEIR

HOME CONGREGATIONS.

PARTICIPANTS LEARN THE

BASIC OF THE DISEASE AND

TREATMENTS IN ORDER TO

FOCUS ON WHAT IT IS LIKE

FOR THE PATIENT.

AN ADDED INCENTIVE FOR

CHURCHES, THE TRAINING,

FOOD, LODGING, AND EVEN

THE COURSE MATERIALS ARE

ALL FREE.

WE DID NOT WANT TO

LIMIT THE ABILITY TO HAVE

THE AVERAGE CHURCH RECEIVE

THIS TRAINING BECAUSE OF

LACK OF RESOURCES.

Lorie: LUANDA LONG

ATTENDED THE SEMINAR YEARS

AGO AND NOW PASSES ON WHAT

SHE LEARNED TO VOLUNTEERS

AT ELON'S BAPTIST CHURCH.

WE STARTED OUT WITH 12

OR 15 FOLK WHEN WE STARTED

THIS MINISTRY.

AND ALL OF THEM HAD A

PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH

CANCER, EITHER THEY WERE A

CANCER SURVIVOR OR

CARE-GIVER OF A CANCER

PATIENT.

Lorie: SHE TEACHES

VOLUNTEERS ONE NIGHT A

WEEK FOR EIGHT WEEKS TO

PREPARE THEM TO MEET WITH

CANCER PATIENTS IN THEIR

CHURCH.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE DON'T

KNOW WHAT TO SAY WITH

THOSE WHO ARE BATTLING

WITH CANCER.

SOMETIMES THEY MAY SAY OH,

I HAVE A LOVED ONE WHO HAD

CANCER, AND THEY HAD THE

SAME SYMPTOMS, AND THEY

DIED.

THE WRONG THING TO SAY.

I THINK THE MAIN THING WE

TRY TO TRAIN PEOPLE IS TO

HAVE EMPATHY TO LISTEN, TO

NOT TRY TO FIX IT, BUT

JUST TO BE THERE.

TO REALIZE THAT GOD IS

EVERYWHERE.

AND GOD WILL HAVE A

WITNESS IN EVERY

SITUATION.

Lorie: SO FAR THE

MINISTRY IS A SUCCESS.

A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE

DON'T UNDERSTAND THE

IMPACT CANCER DOES TO A

FAMILY AND TO A PERSON.

IT IS MORE THAN JUST A

PHYSICAL DETRIMENT.

IT ATTACKS THEIR SPIRIT

AND ATTACKS THEIR SOUL.

Lorie: LISA REMEMBERS

SUFFERING THROUGH FIVE

MONTHS OF CHEMOTHERAPY FOR

BREAST CANCER.

FOR ME IT WAS STRICTLY

FATIGUE.

I JUST COULD NOT GET OFF

THE COUCH.

JUST DOWN.

Lorie: SHE ASKED THE

CANCER MINISTRY FOR HELP

WITH DAILY NEEDS MANY.

IT MAKES A REAL

DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU'RE

JUST TOO SICK TO DO

ANYTHING.

YOU DON'T FEEL WELL.

YOU DON'T WANT TO DO THE

DISHES.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GET UP.

YOU'VE GOT GROCERIES TO

GET, AND YOU DON'T WANT TO

GO DRIVE ANYWHERE.

IT'S A GREAT MINISTRY.

Lorie: LISA DEALT

WITH ONE MAIN POINT PERSON

WHO RECRUITED OTHERS TO

PITCH IN.

EVERYTHING MAKES A

DIFFERENCE.

PEOPLE -- PHONE CALLS,

CARDS, LETTERS, JUST TO

KNOW THAT PEOPLE ARE

THINKING ABOUT ME, PRAYING

FOR ME, CARING ABOUT ME.

Lorie: THE CANCER

MINISTRY MADE SUCH AN

IMPRESSION, THAT LISA

WANTED TO GET THE

TRAINING.

WE PUT PACKAGES

TOGETHER FOR EVERYONE THAT

WE FIND OUT ABOUT, HA, THAT IS

REFERRED TO US.

CARE PACKAGES FOR THEM

ALL.

I GOT ONE, TOO.

IT WAS VERY NICE.

ALL KINDS OF THINGS IN THE

LITTLE CARE PACKAGE.

BOOKS AND JOURNALS AND

SOCKS TO KEEP WARM,

HATS -- ALL KINDS OF

THINGS.

BEAUTIFUL THINGS.

Lorie: A NEFERTITI'S

MOTHER FOUGHT OVARIAN AND

COCOLON CANCER, THE MINISTRY

SWEPT IN.

THEY WERE AWESOME.

JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU'RE

BY YOURSELF, YOU'RE NOT.

Lorie: ALTHOUGH HER

MOM LOST HER FIGHT, THE

CANCER MINISTRY MADE THOSE

FINAL DAYS EASIER.

HELPING JUST AROUND THE

HOUSE, FOOD, THINGS THAT

MY MOM NEEDED.

SHE WOULD NEED ERRANDS

RUN, MEDICINE.

SOMETIMES SHE JUST WANTED

TO HAVE SOMEONE TO SIT

WITH HER AND TALK, JUST

COMPANIONSHIP.

Lorie: AND THEY ALSO

HELPED NEFERTITI, WHO AS A

WORKING MOM WITH TWO

CHILDREN, BECAME

OVERWHELMED WITH THE

PRESSURE OF CARING FOR HER

SICK MOTHER.

SO WHILE CANCER WILL

LIKELY CONTINUE TO STRIKE

FAR TOO MANY, CHURCHES NOW

CAN CHOOSE TO HELP THOSE

DEALING WITH THE DISEASE.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: A POWER STORY

THAT SHOWS THAT EVERYONE

CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND

LEND A HAND BY SIMPLY

KNOWING WHAT TO SAY.

STAY WITH US: WE'LL BE

RIGHT BACK.

Efrem: CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS

HELPING TO SERVE MON GOAL

LIEMONGOLIAN MEEDS.

PARENTS SPECIAL-NEEDS

CHILDREN OFTEN ARE FORCED

TO LEAVE THEIR CAREERS TO

CARE FOR THEIR CHILDREN.

THE END RESULT IS MORE

HARDSHIP, POVERTY, AND

DESPERATE LIVING

CONDITIONS.

"ORPHAN'S PROMISE"

PARTNERED WITH A MINISTRY

THROUGH A GROUP CALLED

"REACHING THE LIGHT," A

DEVELOPMENT CENTER THAT IS

A SOURCE OF HOPE FOR THESE

FAMILIES, WHERE THEY ARE

TRAINED BY DOCTORS AND

THERAPISTS AND OFFERED

FIRST CLASS CARE, AS WELL

AS REHABILITATION SERVICES

TO THE FAMILIES AT NO

COST.

THE CHILDREN ARE NOW

LEADING HEALTHIER AND MUCH

HAPPIER LIVES.

> IT IS TIME NOW FOR

YOUR TUESDAY TWEETABLE.

KNOW THIS: SUCCESS IS NOT

AN INSTANT MIX.

IT TAKES TIME, WORK, AND

PATIENCE.

MOST IMPORTANTLY AS

BELIEVERS, IT REQUIRES THE

HAND OF GOD BE AT WORK IN

YOUR LIFE.

SO WHEN YOU SEE SUCCESS IN

OTHERS, KNOW THIS: YOU MAY

SEE THE GLORY, BUT YOU

DON'T ALWAYS SEE THE

GRIND.

THE GRIND IN MANY CASES IS

HOURS OF WORK TO GET WHERE

THEY ARE, AND FOR SURE,

DON'T FORGET THE DAYS AND

NIGHTS OF PRAYER FOR GOD'S

GUIDANCE ALONG THE VERY

LONG JOURNEY.
