Efrem: THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TAKING

AIM AT THE OPIOID

EPIDEMIC, DELIVERING A

MAJOR SPEECH TODAY,

DECLARING IT A PUBLIC

HEALTH CRISIS, FREEING UP

GOVERNMENT MONEY AND

RESOURCES.

THE GROWING EPIDEMIC

CLAIMED 64,000 AMERICAN

LIVES LAST YEAR.

HE WILL HAVE AN EFFORT TO

END THE ADDICTION CRISIS.

THOUSANDS OF PUERTO RICAN

CHURCHES CONTINUE TO FACE

AN UPHILL BATTLE WEEKS

AFTER HURRICANE IRM HURRICANE MARIA

STRUCK THE ISLAND.

MANY CHURCHES ARE MEETING

IN THE STREETS, OR

MEETING, LIKE THIS CHURCH

YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE, WITH

A MERE TARP OVER THEIR

HEAD.

BUT BELIEVERS ON THE

ISLAND ARE CONVICTED THAT

THE LORD WILL PROVIDE FOR

THEM IN BIG WAYS.

SHE PASTORS THE LARGEST

CHURCH ON THE ISLAND.

WE MET WITH HER.

AND SHE SAYS THOSE THAT

LEAVE, IT IS GOING TO GO

OKAY FOR THEM.

THEY'LL DO WELL.

BUT THOSE WHO STAY, WE'RE

GOING TO MAKE HISTORY

BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO

REBUILD THIS ISLAND.

Efrem: THE

ORGANIZATION IS ASKING

CHURCHES ON THE MAINLAND

TO ADOPT A PUERTO RICAN

CHURCH FOR THE NEXT YEAR.

> ERIC GONZALES IS ON

THE ISLAND OF PUERTO RICO

AND SHOWS US SOME OF THE

DESTRUCTION.

Reporter: WE'RE IN

THE CITY OF MONAFIA, ABOUT

AN HOUR NORTH OF SAN JUAN.

THIS IS AN AREA WHERE THE

EYE OF THE STORM MADE ITS

WAY THROUGH.

YOU CAN SEE POWER LINES

ARE STILL DOWN, AND POWER

LINES ARE BEING HELD UP BY

TREES.

THIS ENTIRE AREA IS

WITHOUT POWER, JUST LIKE

MUCH OF THE ISLAND.

MORE THAN 80%, SOME

3.5 MILLION HOMES, ARE

STILL IN THE DARK MORE

THAN A MONTH AFTER

HURRICANE MARIA.

SOME ARE TURNING TO

Facebook TO GET THE WORD

OUT THAT THEY NEED HELP.

SUCH WAS THE CASE OF THIS

MAN, WHO SAID HE AND HIS

COMMUNITY NEED FOOD AND

WATER.

SHE WROTE IN THE STREET,

S.O.S., AGUA, MEANING

WATER, AND COMINA, MEANING

FOOD.

WE'RE HOUSING

MISSIONARIES FROM CHICAGO,

AND THEY CAME OVER HERE TO

HELP OUR PEOPLE FROM

PUERTO RICO, GIVING THEM

WATER AND FOOD.

ONE OF THE MISSIONARY'S

WIFE SAW Facebook, AND

WE MADE IT OUR MISSION TO

FIND THEM.

Reporter: GETTING TO

THE MAN, ABOUT 90 MINUTES

SOUTH OF THE CITY, PROVED

DIFFICULT.

SNAPPED POWER LINES AND

DEBRIS STILL LITTER THE

STREETS.

THE GOVERNMENT HASN'T

REACHED THEM, SO IT IS THE

WORK OF THE CHURCH TO HELP

EVERYONE IN NEED.

Reporter: IN THE END,

CHURCH MEMBERS REACHED HIM

WITH GROCERIES AND WATER.

AND THEY ADDED YO GAMOS,

WHICH MEANS WE MADE IT.

JUST TO HAVE A SECOND

STORY.

AND THE SECOND STORY FELL

DOWN.

Reporter: THIS PASTOR

LEADS "FOUNTAIN OF LIVING

WATER CHURCH," AND YOU CAN

TELL THERE HAS BEEN WATER

INSIDE HERE.

OFFICIALS TELL ME IT HAD

ABOUT SEVEN FEET OF WATER,

AND MANY OF THE TILES WERE

JUST RIPPED OFF THE ROOF.

THE ENTIRE SECOND FLOOR

CAME DOWN.

THIS CHURCH SEATS ABOUT

5,000 MEMBERS.

IN ALL, ABOUT 10,000

MEMBERS HERE IN PUERTO

RICO ATTEND THIS CHURCH.

WHAT CAN WE, AS

CHRISTIANS, DO FOR YOU?

WELL, FIRST OF ALL,

PRAY.

DO NOT FORGET ABOUT PUERTO

RICO.

OUR ISLAND IS GOING TO

TAKE A LITTLE LONGER THAN

A COUPLE OF MONTHS.

Reporter: HE SAYS IT

WILL TAKE TIME, BUT HE

PLANS TO REBUILD.

HE AND OTHERS ARE THANKFUL

THAT A $300 MILLION

ELECTRICAL CONTRACT WAS

JUST SIGNED TO GIVE POWER

BACK ON TO THE ISLAND.

THEY SAY ONCE THE POWER

COMES BACK, LIFE WILL GET

BACK TO NORMAL QUICKER.

ERIC GONZALES, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: POLITICAL

OBSERVERS SAY THE

NARRATIVE ON RUSSIA HAS

FLIPPED IN WASHINGTON,

GIVING DEMOCRATS A BLACK

EYE AND SOME REPUBLICANS

SOME MUCH-NEEDED MOMENTUM

AS THEY PROMOTE TAX

REFORM.

HEATHER CELL SELLS IS ON THIS

STORY.

Heather: SHOCKWAVES

ARE ROLLING IN WASHINGTON

OVER NEWS THAT THE CLINTON

CAMPAIGN AND DEMOCRATIC

PARTY FUNDED RESEARCH FOR

THE INFAMOUS DOSSIER.

ITS ALLEGATIONS ABOUT

DONALD TRUMP'S TIES TO

RUSSIA DOMINATEDED MUCH OF

THE 2016 CAMPAIGN, AND NOW

THE PRESIDENT IS POUNCING

ON THE NEWS THAT DEMOCRATS

PAID FOR IT.

President Trump:

HILLARY CLINTON ALWAYS

DENIED IT, THE DEMOCRATS

ALWAYS DENIED IT, AND NOW

ONLY BECAUSE IT IS GOING

TO COME OUT IN A COURT

CASE, THEY SAY, YES, THEY

DID IT AND THEY'RE

EMBARRASSED BY IT.

Heather: THE

"WASHINGTON POST" BROKE

THIS STORY, AND OTHER

REPORTERS, INCLUDING TWO

FROM THE "NEW YORK TIMES,"

ARE SAYING THAT CLINTON

CAMPAIGN OFFICIALS LIED TO

THEM ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN'S

ROLE IN FUNDING IT IS.

THE DOSSIER HAS BEEN PART

OF THE RUSSIAN

INVESTIGATION INTO LAST

YEAR'S PRESIDENTIAL

CAMPAIGN, AND THIS LATEST

NEWS COULD PROVE TO BE A

TURNING POINT.

DEMOCRATS HAVE TRIED TO

BRUSH IT ASIDE, JUST AS

THE WHITE HOUSE RAMPS UP

ITS CAMPAIGN TO PASS TAX

REFORM.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS

CONGRESS IS MOVING AHEAD

QUICKLY.

President Trump:

THEY'RE PASSING THIS BILL

ALONG VERY RAPIDLY.

WE HAVE TO GET TAX CUTS

AND PASS IT ALONG.

Heather: WHAT IS NOT

CLEAR IS WHERE REPUBLICANS

WILL LAND ON WHAT TO DO

WITH THE IDEA OF

ELIMINATING THE DEDUCTION

FOR STATE AND LOCAL TAXES.

AND THE PEOPLE CAN

CONTRIBUTE TO THEIR 401K

RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS.

TOP REPUBLICANS WRITING

THE PLAN SAID THERE COULD

BE LIMITS, AND THE

PRESIDENT HAS TWEETED, NO

CHANGES, BUT WEDNESDAY

THEY HINTED OTHERWISE.

President Trump:

WELL, MAYBE THERE IS, AND

MAYBE WE'LL USE IT FOR

NEGOTIATING.

Heather: A BUDGET

VOTE TODAY COULD SET THE

RUSE FORULESFORTHERULES FOR THE TAX CODE.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: VICE PRESIDENT

MIKE PENCE DELIVERED THE

KEY NOTE ADDRESS AT THE IN

THE DEFENSE OF CHRISTIANS

ANNUAL SUMMIT IN

WASHINGTON WEDNESDAY.

HE SAYS THE PRESIDENT

TRUMTRUMPADMINISTRATION IS WORKING

TIRELESS TO HELP THE

PERSECUTED CHURCH.

> WEDNESDAY AIMS AT

BLOCKING THE CASH FLOW TO

HEZBOLLAH MILITANTS.

THE BILL ALSO SANCTIONS

THE GROUP FOR USING

CIVILIANS AS HUMAN

SHIELDS.

THIS COMES AS WASHINGTON

IS INCREASING PRESSURE ON

IRAN, HEZBOLLAH'S MAIN

BACKER.

THE HOUSE IS SCHEDULED TO

VOTE THURSDAY ON

LEGISLATION THAT WOULD HIT

IRAN WITH NEW SANCTIONS

FOR ITS PURSUIT OF

LONG-RANGE BALLISTIC

MISSILES, WITHOUT

DERAILING THE 2015

INTERNATIONAL NUCLEAR

ACCORD.

> THERE IS A BATTLE

BETWEEN THE LGBT COMMUNITY

AND FAITH-BASED ADOPTION

PROVIDERS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY, BUT SEE HOW

TEXAS' NEW ADOPTION LAW IS

A BIG WIN FOR RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY.

THAT STORY IS COMING UP

NEXT.

Efrem: A NEW LAW IN

TEXAS PROTECTS FAITH-BASED

ADOPTION AGENCIES IF THEY

CHOOSE NOT TO PLACE

CHILDREN WITH GAY COUPLES.

CHARLENE AARON VISITED ONE

AGENCY WHERE SHE LEARNED

WHY THE LEGISLATION IS

CONSIDERED A VICTORY,

ESPECIALLY FOR THE

CHILDREN.

Charlene: WHEN IT

COMES TO ADOPTION, PUTTING

CHILDREN WITH SAME-SEX

COUPLES OFTEN LEADS TO A

FIERCE DEBATE.

THIS MICHIGAN COUPLE IS

SUING THE STATE AFTER TWO

CHRISTIAN ADOPTION

AGENCIES TURNED THEM AWAY

BECAUSE THEY'RE GAY.

I'M VERY LUCKY.

I HAVE VERY SUPPORTIVE

FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND I

WORK IN A VERY SUPPORTIVE

ENVIRONMENT.

SO I REALLY HAVE NOT FACED

ANY DISCRIMINATION OVER

BEING GAY.

SO CALLING AGENCIES AND

BEING TOLD IT IS THEIR

POLICY NOT TO PLACE KIDS

WITH SAME-SEX FAMILIES WAS

PRETTY HARD TO HEAR.

Charlene: IN ORDER TO

PREVENT THOSE LAWSUITS IN

TEXAS, LAWMAKERS PASSED

LEGISLATION THAT WOULD

PROTECT CHRISTIAN ADOPTION

AGENCIES FOR REFUSING GAY

COUPLES.

RIGHT NOW IN TEXAS,

THERE ARE MORE THAN 30,000

KIDS WHO NEED TO KNOW THE

LOVE OF A FAMILY.

Charlene: FAITH-BASED

ORGANIZATIONS MAKE UP 20%

OF THE AGENCIES IN TEXAS.

OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS,

MANY STOPPED TAKING CASES

FROM THE STATE'S FOSTER

CARE SYSTEM, FEELING THEIR

BIBLICAL VIEW OF MARRIAGE

WOULD CLASH WITH THE LGBT

COMMUNITY.

YOUR RELIGIOUS

CONVICTIONS SHOULD NOT

DENY YOU THE OPPORTUNITY

TO CARE FOR CHILDREN.

Charlene: BUCKNER

INTERNATIONAL IS AN

EVANGELICAL CHARITY THAT

SERVES MORE THAN 1,000

TEXAS CHILDREN EACH YEAR.

THERE ARE JUST NOT

ENOUGH PLACES FOR THEM.

HERE IN TEXAS, WE'VE HAD

CHILDREN WHO HAVE HAD TO

SLEEP ON THE FLOOR OF

OFFICES BECAUSE THERE WAS

NOWHERE TO TAKE THEM THAT

NIGHT.

Charlene: THEY REFUSE

TO PLACE CHILDREN WITH GAY

COUPLES.

WE BELIEVE THAT GOD'S

DESIGN FOR A FAMILY IS A

MAN AND A WOMAN -- THAT'S

OUR BIBLICALLY-HELD

BELIEF.

SO BASED ON THAT, AND WITH

A NUMBER OF OTHER

FAITH-BASED PROVIDERS HERE

IN TEXAS, AND OBVIOUSLY

WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE

LEGISLATURE AND THE

GOVERNMENT OF TEXAS, WE'VE

BEEN ABLE TO SECURE THIS

EXTRA LAYER OF PROTECTION

FOR US TO BE ABLE TO

REALLY LIVE OUT OUR

BIBLICAL CONVICTIONS.

Charlene: THE LAW HAS

DRAWN FIERCE BACKLASH FROM

THE LGBT COMMUNITY, AND

THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

HAS BANNED TRAVEL TO

TEXAS, CITING

DISCRIMINATION BASED ON

ORIENTATION.

TO TRAVEL TO THESE

STATES, AT STATE EXPENSE,

WOULD MEAN WE WOULD BE

USING TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO

SUPPORT THESE STATES, AND

WE THINK IT WOULD AN

OFFENSE TO ALL OF THOSE

INDIVIDUALS IN AMERICA WHO

FEEL THIS SCURGE OF

DISCRIMINATION.

IT AFFECTS THE CHILDREN

BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY

OTHER COUPLES LIKE US OUT

THERE, WHO WANT TO PROVIDE

A HOME FOR THESE KIDS, AND

ARE BEING TOLD NO.

Charlene: SUPPORTERS

OF THE TEXAS LAW DISAGREE.

AT THE END OF THE DAY,

WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO GET

IS MORE HOMES.

AND I DON'T THINK THIS

PREVENTS MORE HOMES FROM

COMING FROM ANY SECTOR OF

SOCIETY, FROM COMING TO

THE TABLE.

Charlene: CHRISTIANS

WHO FEEL THEIR BELIEFS ON

MARRIAGE AND FAMILY ARE

INCREASINGLY ATTACKED SEE

THAT AS A MAJOR VICTORY

FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

COLLINS MAINTAINS IT IS

ALSO ABOUT SAVING LIVES.

FOR US, WHAT IT COMES

DOWN TO IS, WHAT ABOUT THE

CHILDREN?

DO THEY WIN?

IS THIS A WIN FOR THE

CHILDREN?

NOT FOR ANY GROUP OR

ORGANIZATION.

IT REALLY IS ABOUT THE

KIDS.

Charlene: HE IS JUST

THANKFUL THE LAW ALLOWS

THEM TO CONTINUE HELPING

THE STATE'S MOST

VULNERABLE.

WE BELIEVE THIS IS A

VERY INCLUSIVE LAW.

WE'RE NOT SAYING IN ANY

WAY THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE

BAD AND SHOULDN'T BE

PARENTS.

WE'RE JUST SAYING THIS IS

WHAT WE BELIEVE.

THESE ARE SINCERELY-HELD

RELIGIOUS CONVICTIONS WE

HAVE.

AND WE WANT TO CONTINUE TO

BE ABLE TO DO WHAT WE'VE

DONE FOR 138 YEARS NOW.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS, DALLAS.

Efrem: A BIG HEART

AND A BIG VOICE.

UP NEXT, WE'RE SITTING

DOWN WITH WORSHIP LEADER

KARI JOBE.

Efrem: CARE JOBE JOBE KARI JOBE

RECENTLY TOOK HOME A DOVE

AWARD FOR HER LATEST

PROJECT, "THE GARDEN."

I SAT DOWN WITH HER TO

TALK ABOUT HER ALBUM IN

THIS WEEK'S "STUDIO 5"

INTERVIEW.

* I HAD ALMOST GIVEN UP

*

* SOMETHING GOOD

* SOMETHING KIND

Efrem: SO FRESH FROM

THE DOVE AWARDS, YOU GOT

TO BE HOST THIS YEAR.

YES.

Efrem: WHAT WAS THAT

LIKE?

IT WAS FUN.

I CO-HOSTED WITH TASHA

COBBS.

IT WAS FUN.

THEY MAKE IT REALLY EASY.

I THINK THEY'RE USED TO

ARTISTS COMING RIGHT FROM

THE ROAD --

Efrem: BECAUSE YOU'RE

IN THE MIDDLE OF "THE

GARDEN" TOUR.

RIGHT.

IT WAS SWEET.

IT WAS REALLY FUN.

WE GOT TO BE OURSELVES AND

ALSO DO THE SERIOUS STUFF,

LIKE THEY NEED YOU TO DO.

Efrem: YOU WERE

NOMINATED AND YOU GOT TO

TAKE HOME AN AWARD AS

WELL.

YEAH, I DID.

MY ALBUM PACKAGING WON A

DOVE AWARD.

THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME TO

WIN A DOVE FOR THE

PACKAGING.

THAT WAS A COOL THING FOR

ME.

Efrem: YOUR ALBUM IS

"THE GARDEN," AND THIS IS

"THE GARDEN TOUR."

TELL ME THE STORY BEHIND

THIS WHOLE GARDEN STORY

AND THIS MUSIC.

* I CAN SEE YOU

SO RIGHT WHEN I WAS

STARTING TO WRITE FOR THIS

ALBUM, I DIDN'T KNOW YET

WHERE IT WAS GOING OR THE

THEME OR ANYTHING, BUT I

WAS PREGNANT WITH CANYON,

MY ONE AND A

HALF-YEAR-OLD, AND MY

SISTER WAS PREGNANT AT THE

SAME TIME.

AND RIGHT AT THE END OF

HER PREGNANCY, SHE GAVE

BIRTH TO A SLEEPING ANGEL,

WHO WAS ALREADY WITH JESUS

BEFORE WE GOT TO MEET HER.

SO AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, IT

JUST SHOT US AND OUR

ENTIRE FAMILY INTO THIS

SEASON OF THIS EXTREME

DISAPPOINTMENT, HEARTACHE,

TRAUMA.

IT WAS A TRAUMATIC

EXPERIENCE --

Efrem: AND YOU'RE

STILL CARRYING YOUR SON AT

THIS TIME?

AND I WAS STILL

PREGNANT, EXACTLY.

I HAD AN INCREDIBLE MENTOR

IN MY LIFE WHO REMINDED ME

THAT I COULDN'T STAY HERE.

SHE SAID, YOU HAVE TO

GRIEVE THIS, BUT I'M NOT

GOING TO LET YOU STAY

THERE AND SHUT DOWN.

BECAUSE I WAS NAVIGATING

THROUGH, GOD, WHY DIDN'T

YOU ANSWER OUR PRAYERS?

AND WHY DIDN'T YOU DO

MIRACLES?

HONESTLY, HE HAS DONE AN

INCREDIBLE MIRACLE IN JUST

REACHING MY SISTER'S

HEART.

I WROTE "THE GARDEN" SONG

FOR HER.

IT WAS A PRAYER FOR HER,

PRAYING THAT FAITH WOULD

RISE UP IN HER HEART

AGAIN.

HER DAUGHTER THAT'S IN

HEAVEN IS NAMED JAMES IVY.

SO IVY IN THE SONG BEGAN

TO BE SOMETHING THAT WAS

SPEAKING LIFE.

I EVEN HAVE THIS TATTOO IN

HER HONOR.

GOD USES IVY AS A REMINDER

THAT HE IS IN CONTROL, AND

HE HAS NOT FORSAKEN US AND

HE HAS NOT FORGOTTEN, AND

SOMETIMES WE FACE

DIFFICULT TIMES ON THIS

SIDE OF HEAVEN.

Efrem: WAS THIS A

DIFFICULT ALBUM, THEN, TO

DO IN LIGHT OF WHAT YOU

WERE GOING THROUGH?

YEAH, IT WAS.

IT WAS HARD IN THE WRITING

PROCESS BECAUSE, YOU KNOW,

WHEN YOU GO THROUGH

SOMETHING DIFFICULT, I

THINK SOMETIMES WE WANT TO

PROCESS IT BY OURSELVES

AND NOT HAVE TO TALK ABOUT

IT YET.

YOU'RE, LIKE, I DON'T KNOW

WHERE I AM YET WITH THIS.

I'M STILL HEALING.

BUT I HAD TO BE WRITING.

THERE ARE JUST DEADLINES

AND PEOPLE WAITING FOR

WHAT I NEEDED TO BE

TURNING IN.

SO I SAID, I'M JUST

GOING -- EVERY WRITING

SESSION I HAD, I WAS,

LIKE, THIS IS WHERE I AM

AND THIS IS WHAT GOD IS

DOING.

SO IN THAT REGARD IT WAS

SWEET BECAUSE I JUST WAS

ABLE TO BE MYSELF.

I WASN'T TRYING TO CONJURE

UP FEELING A DIFFERENT

WAY.

WE REALLY DOVE INTO WHAT

WAS HAPPENING.

BUT I REALIZED THAT PEOPLE

NEEDED THAT, YOU KNOW?

IT HAS BEEN SO INCREDIBLE.

THE PEOPLE COMING TO US ON

THIS TOUR, THERE ARE SO

MANY STORIES THEY'RE

BRINGING UP IN THE "Q" AND

"A," AND JUST SAYING, THIS

ALBUM, I NEEDED THIS

BECAUSE WE LOST A CHILD,

TOO.

OR I'VE WALKED WITH THINGS

THROUGH GOD THAT I HAVEN'T

UNDERSTOOD BEFORE AND YOU

HELPED ME WORSHIP THROUGH

IT.

AND JUST TO HAVE HONESTY

WITH GOD INSTEAD OF HIDING

IT.

HE KNOWS WHAT WE'RE

THINKING ANYWAY, SO...IT

WAS A HARD ALBUM TO WRITE

BUT IT WAS HEALING AT THE

SAME TIME.

Efrem: I'M MARRIED

WITH TWO CHILDREN, AND WE

LOST TWO CHILDREN IN

BETWEEN.

AND I OFTEN SAY THAT WAS

THE WORST TIME AS A MAN,

TRYING TO MINISTER TO A

WIFE WHERE I COULDN'T

EXPLAIN WHAT WAS

HAPPENING.

AND WHAT IS HELPFUL

WITH THIS ALBUM IS -- WHEN

YOU'RE GOING THROUGH

DIFFICULT TIMES,

CHRISTIANEES DOESN'T HELP.

PEOPLE SAYING, GOD IS

GOING TO USE THIS -- THAT

DOESN'T COMFORT.

BUT WHAT DOES COMFORT IS

JUST, I'M WITH YOU.

AND NOW, ON THE FLIP SIDE,

I KNOW WHY PEOPLE SAY, GOD

IS GOING TO TURN THIS TO

BEAUTY, BECAUSE HE DOES.

SO SOMETIMES IT JUST TAKES

ENCOURAGING PEOPLE.

I THINK MUSIC DOES THAT

FOR YOU.

I THINK THIS ALBUM HAS AN

ANOINTING FOR THAT BECAUSE

WE REALLY ENCOUNTERED

GOD'S PRESENCE REALLY

HELPING US IN THAT SEASON,

AND I THINK IT IS DOING

THAT NOW FOR OTHER PEOPLE.

* IT IS SO SWEET TO TRUST

IN JESUS *

*

* TRUST JESUS

* TRUST HIS PROMISE

Efrem: IT TAKES YOU

TO A WHOLE NEW PLACE.

YOU CAN FIND KARI JOBE'S

ALBUM, "THE GARDEN,"

WHEREVER MUSIC IS SOLD.

> PEOPLE MAY WANT TO

LISTEN CLOSELY TO THE

"BLADE RUNNER" SOUNDTRACK.

* I'M ALMOST HUMAN

Efrem: WORSHIP ARTIST

LAUREN DAIGEL CONTRIBUTED

SONG "ALMOST HUMAN."

SHE SAID SHE CONTRIBUTED

TO THE FILM BECAUSE SHE

COULDN'T ESCAPE THE IDEA

THAT SOMEONE IN THE

THEATER MIGHT NOT KNOW

GOD, SOMEONE WHO MAY BE IN

NEED OF HIS HOPE, HIS

LOVE, AND THE THINGS THAT

CHRISTIANS HAVE TO OFFER

THE WORLD.
