Efrem: THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

THE GUNMAN WHO KILLED 26

PEOPLE IN A SMALLTOWN

CHURCH SENT THREATENING

TEXT MESSAGES TO HIS

MOTHER-IN-LAW BEFORE HIS

ATTACK, AND THAT'S NOT

ALL.

OUR ERIC GONZALES

DISCOVERED DETAILS ABOUT

THE SHOOTING AND A MAJOR

MISHAP TIED INTO THE CASE.

Reporter: AUTHORITIES

HAVE YET TO RELEASE A

MOTIVE ON WHY DEVIN KELLEY

UNLEASHED THE DEADLY

SHOOTING.

INVESTIGATORS SAY IT WAS A

DOMESTIC SITUATION.

HE WAS ON THE HUNT FOR HIS

MOTHER-IN-LAW.

I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE

SCENE IN THERE IS

HORRIFIC.

THERE IS NOT EVEN A WORD

TO DESCRIBE IT.

Reporter: AFTER

WATCHING A VIDEO OF THE

MASSACRE INSIDE THIS

CHURCH, LAW ENFORCEMENT

OFFICIALS SAY WITHOUT A

DOUBT THE SHOOTER INTENDED

TO KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS

POSSIBLE.

THERE ARE MANY WAYS HE

COULD HAVE TAKEN CARE OF

THE MOTHER-IN-LAW WITHOUT

COMING WITH 15 LOADED

MAGAZINES AND ASSAULT

RIFLES TO A CHURCH.

I THINK HE CAME HERE WITH

A PURPOSE AND A MISSION.

Reporter: POLICE SAY

AFTER HE GOT INSIDE, THE

26-YEAR-OLD MURDERED HIS

WAY TO THE FRONT OF THE

TINY CHURCH.

HE KILLED 26 PEOPLE,

RANGING IN AGE FROM 18

MONTHS TO 77 YEARS OLD.

14 CHILDREN IN ALL,

INCLUDING THE PASTOR AND

HIS WIFE'S 14-YEAR-OLD

DAUGHTER, WHO ATTENDED THE

SERVICE WHILE HER PARENTS

WERE OUT OF TOWN.

* STAND UP FOR JESUS

Reporter: POLICE SAY

KELLEY WAS CONFRONTED BY

TWO MEN.

I JUST WISH I COULD

HAVE GOTTEN THERE FASTER.

I AM NO HERO.

I AM NOT.

Reporter: STEVEN WILI

FORD CHASED KELLE KELLEY IS

BEING CREATED WITH CHASING

HIM.

I HEARD A SHOT, AND I

KNEW THAT PROBABLY

REPRESENTED A LIFE.

Reporter: AND AUTOPSY

REVEALS KELLEY WAS HIT

TWICE, AND A THIRD WOUND

WAS SELF-INFLICTED TO THE

HEAD.

KELLEY USED HIS CELL PHONE

AND NOTIFIED HIS FATHER HE

HAD BEEN SHOT AND DIDN'T

THINK HE WOULD MAKE IT.

CBN NEWS HAS UNCOVERED THE

26-YEAR-OLD SHOOTER WAS

DISCHARGED FROM THE AIR

FORCE IN 2013, AFTER

SERVING A ONE-YEAR

SENTENCE FOR ASSAULTING

HIS FIRST WIFE AND

STEPSON.

HE HIT THE CHILD IN THE

HEAD WITH ENOUGH FORCE TO

PRODUCE DEATH OR BODILY

HARM.

THE ABUSE CHARGE SHOULD

HAVE FAILED HIM FROM

BUYING GUNS.

AND THE AIR FORCE FAILED

TO PASS ALONG INFORMATION

THAT WOULD HAVE PREVENTED

KELLEY FROM OBTAINING A

WEAPON.

Efrem: DESPITE THE

HORROR OF THE TRAGIC

MASSACRE IN TEXAS,

SURVIVORS ARE FINDING GOD

IN THE MIDST OF THE

DARKNESS.

DALE HURD IS ON THAT PART

OF THE STORY.

WE'VE HAD A LONG NIGHT

WITH OUR CHILDREN.

Reporter: FOR PASTOR

FRANK PALMEROY AND WIFE

SHERRI, IT WAS HARD TO

TALK WITHOUT CRYING.

THEIR CHURCH SHATTERED BY

SENSELESS VIOLENCE.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS

GONE.

THEIR 14-YEAR-OLD

DAUGHTER, ANNABELLE, AMONG

THE DEAD.

OUR SWEET BELLE WOULD

NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DEAL

WITH LOSING SO MUCH FAMILY

YESTERDAY.

SHE WAS SURROUNDED

YESTERDAY BY HER CHURCH

FAMILY, WHICH SHE LOVES

FIERCELY.

Reporter: AND JOANNE

WARD DIED AS SHE USED HER

BODY TO SHIELD HER FOUR

YOUNG CHILDREN.

TWO OF HER CHILDREN DIED,

AGES FIVE AND SEVEN.

ANOTHER IS IN CRITICAL

CONDITION.

AND EIGHT MEMBERS OF THE

HOLCOLM FAMILY, INCLUDING

BRIAN HOLCOL MANY HOLCOLM WHO WAS

SERVING AS GUEST PASTOR,

AND HIS WIFE, WHO WAS

EIGHT MONTHS PREGNANT.

BUT PEOPLE ARE STANDING

STRONG IN THEIR FAITH.

BEFORE THE COUNTRY AND THE

NATIONAL MEDIA, THE CHURCH

AND ITS PASTOR ARE LIFTING

UP THE NAME OF JESUS, EVEN

AS THEY KNOW THEIR FRIENDS

AND FAMILY ARE IN HEAVEN.

WE ARE A VERY CLOSE

FAMILY.

WE ATE TOGETHER, WE

LAUGHED TOGETHER, WE CRIED

TOGETHER, AND WE

WORSHIPPED TOGETHER.

NOW MOST OF OUR CHURCH

FAMILY IS GONE.

Reporter: PASTOR

SOLABARIOS HAS BEEN

MINISTERING TO THE CHURCH

AND ITS PASTOR.

THIS IS A CHURCH THAT

GLORIFIED JESUS.

THIS IS A CHURCH OF

PRAYER.

THIS IS A CHURCH THAT IS

UNITING AROUND THEIR

PASTOR AS THE GREAT

EXAMPLE RIGHT NOW OF A

TRUE SHEPHERD.

Reporter: PASTOR

PALMEROY WAS NOT IN THE

CHURCH ON SUNDAY, BUT HIS

SERMON THE WEEK BEFORE THE

TRAGEDY, EVEN IF THINGS

HAPPEN YOU DON'T

UNDERSTAND, YOU STILL NEED

TO O D DO WHAT GOD IS CALLING

YOU TO DO AND TO TRUST THE

LORD WITH ALL OF YOUR

HEART, NO MATTER WHAT.

WE SERVE A GOD THAT IS

IN MIRACLE-WORKING

BUSINESS.

HE CAN HEAL AND BRING

FORTH ALL KINDS OF

INCREDIBLE FRUIT.

THE THING IS, TRUST HIM

AND NOT YOUR OWN

UNDERSTANDING.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: PRESIDENT

TRUMP CALLED ON NORTH

KOREA TO NEGOTIATE ITS WAY

OUT OF A CONFRONTATION

OVER ITS NUCLEAR WEAPONS

PROGRAM.

THE PRESIDENT SAID A DEAL

WOULD BE GOOD FOR NORTH

KOREA AND THE WORLD.

THE LANGUAGE IS A CHANGE

FROM THE FIERY RHETORIC HE

HAS USED WITH NORTH KOREA

IN THE PAST.

THE PRESIDENT REPEATED HIS

THREAT: THE U.S. WILL USE

MILITARY FORCE AGAINST THE

ROGUE REGIME IF NECESSARY.

BUT HE SAYS HE SEES A LOT

OF PROGRESS IN HIS

DEALINGS WITH THE NORTH

AND HE URGED THE LEADER,

KIM JONG-UN, TO COME TO

THE TABLE AND MAKE A DEAL.

> THE MOTHER OF DR. BEN

CARSON HAS DIED.

THEY ANNOUNCED HIS

MOTHER'S DEATH ON THEIR

Facebook PAGE.

WHILE CAMPAIGNING FOR THE

2016 REPUBLICAN

PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION,

HE OFTEN QUOTED STORIES

ABOUT HIS MOTHER'S WORK

ETHIC.

ALTHOUGH SHE CAME WITH

FROM AN IMPOVERISHED

BACKGROUND, SHE SOMEHOW

UNDERSTOOD HOW SUCCESS IS

ACHIEVED IN OUR SOCIETY.

SHE ABSOLUTELY REFUSED TO

BE A VICTIM.

AND HE CREDITED HIS

MOTHER'S EXAMPLE FOR HIS

OWN FAITH IN GOD.

> STILL AHEAD ON CBN

"NEWSWATCH," WE HAVE A

BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT

WHAT A SECRET ISRAELI

DEFENSE FORCE MISSION IS

ALL WOULD YO ABOUT.

MEET THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO

RISK THEIR OWN LIVES TO

SAVE THE LIVES OF OTHERS

IN SYRIA.

Efrem: CBN NEWS HAS

Efrem: CBN NEWS HAS

AN EXCLUSIVE INSIDE LOOK

AT WHAT HAS BEEN A SECRET

MISSION BY THE ISRAELI

DEFENSE FORCES.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

IT IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND

MIDDLE EAST STORY, THAT

COMBINES THE I.D.F., A

CHRISTIAN MINISTRY, AND

THE BRUTALITY OF THE

SYRIAN CIVIL WAR.

Reporter: THE STORY

BEGINS HERE ON THE GOLAN

HEIGHTS IN THE DEAD OF

NIGHT.

ISRAELI SOLDIERS INSIDE

SYRIA, PROVIDING HOPE IN

THE FORM OF LIFE-SAVING

MEDICAL SUPPLIES FOR

SYRIANS CAUGHT IN A LONG

AND BLOODY CIVIL WAR.

THEIR PARTNER, A CHRISTIAN

AID GROUP CALLED "FRONTIER

ALLIANCE INTERNATIONAL,"

OR F.A.I..

WE SUPPORT THE STATE OF

ISRAEL AND WE LOVE THE

JEWISH PEOPLE.

TO BE ABLE TO ENGAGE THE

SYRIAN CRISIS THROUGH THE

ISRAELI BORDER, IN

COOPERATION WITH THE

ISRAELI ARMY, IS A HUGE

PRIVILEGE FOR US AS AN

ORGANIZATION.

Chris: ON THIS NIGHT,

DR. SALLY PARSENS AND A

TRAUMA NURSE RETURN FROM A

SEVEN-WEEK TOUR OF DUTY IN

A SYRIAN VILLAGE.

IT WAS A LONG TOUR?

IT WAS VERY GOOD,

THOUGH, VERY GOOD.

Chris: PARSENS AND

DENNISON SERVED IN THIS

MAKESHIFT HOSPITAL.

WHY DID YOU GO IN?

BECAUSE THE LORD CALLS

UT TO ALUS TO ALL OF THE WORLD, TO

ALL NATIONS.

Chris: PARSENS FACED

PROCEDURES SHE NEVER DID

BEFORE.

WHEN THE TEAM DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO, THEY TURNED TO

PRAYER AND EVEN

YouTube.

HOW MANY INCISIONS,

THREE?

YOU'VE GOT ME.

I THINK IT IS PROBABLY

TWO.

CUTTING THE SKIN -- OKAY.

SO THEY'RE JUST GOING

LATERAL.

AND THEN WE DOWNLOADED

A YouTube FOR A

CESAREAN SECTION, AND I

PRAYED A LOT MORE THAN I

READ.

Chris: DURING HER

CAREER, PARSENS HAD NEVER

PERFORMED A C-SECTION.

IN SYRIA, SHE DID SIX.

I HAVE TO TELL YOU,

WHEN I DELIVERED THAT

FIRST LITTLE BABY, I COULD

JUST FEEL HIS HANDS ON MY

HANDS.

THAT'S WHAT SUSTAINED US,

TO BE ABLE TO SEE NEW LIFE

IN THE MIDST OF SUCH

HORRIFIC WAR.

IT WAS JUST A BLESSING

BEYOND BELIEF.

Chris: DENNISON FOUND

A HIDDEN BEAUTY BETWEEN

THE VEIL OF THE SYRIAN

WOMEN.

IN THE WOMEN'S EXAM

ROOM, THEY WOULD TAKE OFF

THEIR BURQA AND REVEAL

THEIR FACES.

AND THEY WERE NO LONGER

HIDDEN, BUT THE BEAUTY OF

THESE PEOPLE WOULD COME

OUT, THESE WOMEN, AND IT

WAS NO LONGER SOMEONE

WITHOUT A PERSONALITY, BUT

IT WAS A WOMAN WITH A LIFE

AND A WOMAN WITH HER

CHILDREN.

WE MET THEM IN THEIR

GLORY, WE MET THEM IN

THEIR BEAUTY, WE MET THEM

IN THEIR PAIN, AND IT WAS

AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE FOR

ME.

Chris: PARSENS AND

HER TEAM SENT THE WORST

CASES BACK TO ISRAEL.

LIATHEIR

MISSION IS PART OF A

PROGRAM CALLED "GOOD

NEIGHBOR."

SO FAR ISRAEL HAS TREATED

MORE THAN 5,000 IN THEIR

ISRAELI HOSPITALS.

> WHY DO YOU DO THIS?

THIS IS A VERY SIMPLE

QUESTION.

I CAN SEE THE SIDE OF THE

BORDER AND I CAN'T DON'T

BRING HIM HEALTH.

IT IS A HUGE SITUATION

THAT IS THERE.

THIS IS MY PART.

AND THIS IS MY OPPORTUNITY

TO BRING THEM HELP WHERE

THEY NEED IT.

I'M VERY PROUD TO DO THIS.

I DON'T KNOW OF ANOTHER

MILITARY IN THE WORLD WHO

WOULD PRIORITIZE

AFFECTIONATE ENGAGEMENT

WITH THEIR ENEMY TO BUILD

A GOOD NEIGHBORHOOD.

WHAT THE I.D.F. HAS DONE

OVER THE LAST FIVE OR SIX

YEARS, HAS SAID, HEY,

LET'S PUT POLITICS TO THE

SIDE AND LET'S SEEK TO

BUILD A GOOD NEIGHBORHOOD

BY BEING GOOD NEIGHBORS.

I'M VERY PROUD TO BE AT

THIS POINT.

THANK YOU FOR THE F.I.A.

ORGANIZATION.

THEY BRING A HIGH

PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL STAFF

TO HELP ON THE SYRIAN

SIDE.

THIS IS NOT SIMPLE.

I AM, ESPECIALLY AS AN

ISRAELI OFFICER -- I'M

VERY PROUD TO BE IN THIS

SITUATION.

Chris: MOST OF THE

WOUNDED COME HERE TO THIS

HOSPITAL IN ISRAEL.

WE DRESSED UP IN GOWN AND

GLOVES TO SIT DOWN WITH

THESE ISRAELI MEN.

WE CONCEALED THEIR

IDENTITY FOR THEIR OWN

PROTECTION.

ONCE I ARRIVED IN

ISRAEL, MY POINT OF VIEW

OF THE ISRAELI PEOPLE

CHANGED COMPLETELY.

I WAS TOLD THAT ISRAEL IS

A BAD GUY, THAT ISRAEL IS

THE ENEMY.

NOW I KNOW THAT IT IS JUST

THE OPPOSITE.

I THANK GOD I ARRIVED IN

ISRAEL IN TIME, BECAUSE IF

I HAD NOT COME HERE, I

WOULDN'T BE ALIVE.

Chris: THE TEAM

CHANGED THIS SYRIAN'S VIEW

ABOUT CHRISTIANS.

BEFORE I THOUGHT THAT

CHRISTIANS WERE BAD

PEOPLE.

BUT I FOUND OUT THAT THEY

ARE GOOD PEOPLE.

AND THEY HELPED ME.

Chris: DURING THE

MISSION, THEY FACED BARREL

BOMBS, LIKE THIS ONE, AND

TOOK SHELTER SOME 60

TIMES.

THEY EVEN FACED THIS

RUSSIAN MIG.

I CONSIDERED THAT I

COULD LOSE MY LIFE THERE,

BUT I CONSIDERED THAT IF

HE CALLED ME THERE, HE WAS

GOING TO SUSTAIN ME

THROUGH THAT, AND THAT

EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO BE

FINE.

YOU HAD TO COUNT THE

COSTS.

YOU HAD TO SAY, DO I LOVE

YOU ENOUGH THAT I'M

WILLING TO LAY DOWN MY

LIFE?

OF COURSE.

AND MY ANSWER WAS YES.

Chris: THOMAS CALLS

THEM HEROS.

THESE ARE SELFLESS,

CHRIST-LIKE PEOPLE.

THESE ARE PEOPLE OF WHOM

THE WORLD IS NOT WORTHY.

Chris: OTHER TEAMS

ARE OPERATING INSIDE SYRIA

NOW, AND THE JOINT PROJECT

IS GROWING.

THOMAS SAYS CHRISTIANS CAN

HELP.

FIRST OF ALL, PRAY.

MAKE INTERCESSION.

JESUS IS CLEAR, PRAY TO

THE LORD OF THE HARVEST.

SECONDLY, COME.

IF YOUR A MEDICAL

PROFESSIONAL, IF YOU LOVE

THE LORD, AND IF YOU CAN

HANDLE THESE

CIRCUMSTANCES, YOU CAN

WORK ON A TEAM BE IN AN

ENVIRONMENT LIKE THIS, WEE

WANT YOU AND WE NEED YOU.

Chris: SOME CONSIDER

THIS A GENUINE MIDDLE EAST

PEACE PLAN: JEWS HELPING

CHRISTIANS HELPING

MUSLIMS.

PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE, NO

MATTER WHAT LABEL WE PUT

ON THEM, MUSLIM OR

CHRISTIAN OR JEW.

BUT UNDERNEATH THEIR

LABEL, THEY ARE MEN AND

WOMEN THAT HAVE THE SAME

NEEDS.

THEY HAVE THE SAME PAINS

AND THE SAME HURTS THAT WE

DO, AND THEY NEED THE SAME

COMPASSION AND LOVE, NO

MATTER WHAT THE BARRIERS.

ALL PEOPLE RESPOND TO

LOVE.

AND WE WERE, AS

CHRISTIANS, GOING INTO A

COMMUNITY THAT DIDN'T KNOW

US, THEY HAVE AN HISTORIC

ANIMOSITY TOWARDS

CHRISTIANS, BUT ALL IT

TOOK WAS AN EXPRESSION OF

LOVE, AND WE WERE WELCOMED

WITH OPEN ARMS.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

NAHARIAH HOSPITAL,

NORTHERN ISRAEL.

Efrem: THE HEALING

POWER OF MUSIC.

COMING UP, WE'RE GOING TO

SHOW YOU THE AMAZING

RESULT OF MUSIC THERAPY.

STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Efrem: WELL, YOU HAVE

HEARD THE OLD SAYING,

"MUSIC SOOTHES THE SAVAGE

BEAST."

YEARS AGO, PEOPLE BELIEVED

IN THE HEALING POWER OF

MUSIC, AND TODAY'S MEDICAL

RESEARCH SHOWS THEY WERE

ON TO SOMETHING.

AS LORIE JOHNSON REPORTS,

MUSIC THERAPY IS A GROWING

PART OF MANY TREATMENTS.

* I ONCE WAS LOST, BUT NOW

I'M FOUND *

Lorie: JAMES LEARNS

TO TALK AGAIN BY SINGING

FAVORITE HYMNS FROM HIS

TIME IN THE CHURCH CHOIR.

*

AND ALL GOD'S PEOPLE

SAID...

AMEN.

Lorie: WHILE A

MASSIVE STROKE TRIED TO

TAKE JAMES' SPEECH, THE

MUCMUSIC AND MEDICINE PROGRAM

IN VIRGINIA HELPS HIM GET

IT BACK.

* JOY

Lorie: WE ACTUALLY

USE MORE OF OUR BRAIN WHEN

WE SING THE SAME PHRASE

VERSUS WHEN WE SPEAK IT.

BECAUSE WHEN WE'RE

SINGING, WE HAVE MELODY,

RHYTHM, AND EMOTION.

THAT'S HOW MUSIC CAN

REENERGIZE DISABLED PARTS

OF THE MIND.

WE'RE ABLE TO ACTIVATE

MORE AREAS OF THE BRAIN

AND REROUTE OR CREATE NEW

NEURO NETWORKS SO WE CAN

GET AROUND THAT DAMAGED

AREA CAUSED BY THE STROKE.

Lorie: FIRST PATIENTS

SING THE WORDS.

HAMBURGER, STEAK.

HAMBURGER, STEAK.

Lorie: AND THEN THEY

TRANSITION TO SPEAKING TO

THEM.

HAMBURGER, STEAK.

Lorie: JAMES' WIFE,

SANDRA, SAYS SINCE

STARTING MUSIC THERAPY,

HER HUSBAND SPONTANEOUSLY

SPEAKS AROUND THE HOUSE.

AT TIMES IT JUST COMES

OUT, YOU KNOW.

AND IT WOULD JUST STOP US

IN OUR TRACKS, WHEN HE HAD

GONE SEVERAL YEARS AND NOT

SPOKEN A WORD, AND

COMMUNICATION WAS ALMOST

NONEXISTENT.

Lorie: PEOPLE WITH

OTHER BRAIN ISSUES ALSO

ENJOY THE BENEFITS OF

MUSIC THERAPY.

JUST SEE THE DIFFERENCE IT

MAKES FOR 96-YEAR-OLD MIKE

NUTSIN.

MIKE, I'M GOING TO PUT

YOUR MUSIC ON, OKAY?

YEAH.

Lorie: UNIVERSITY OF

WISCONSIN RESEARCHERS

DISCOVERED IMPROVEMENTS IN

QUALITY OF LIFE

INDICATORS, LIKED MOOD AND

MEMORY, WHEN DEMENTIA

PATIENTS, LIKE MIKE, WOULD

REGULARLY LISTEN TO MUSIC.

WE'VE SEEN MEMBERS WHO

DON'T TALK VERY MUCH START

TO SING.

Reporter: MIKE'S

FAMILY NOTICED IT, TOO.

MUSIC REALLY DOES

SOMETHING TO WAKE HIM UP

AND HELP HIM TO BE MORE

ENGAGED WITH WHAT IS GOING

ON AROUND HIM.

Reporter: THE KEY

HERE IS TREATING THE

PATIENTS TO MUSIC THEY

LOVE.

SINCE THAT OFTEN VARIES,

EACH PATIENT LISTENS TO

THEIR OWN UNIQUE PLAY

LIST.

MIKE'S DAUGHTER NOTICED

SUCH A CHANGE, SHE MAKES

MUSIC A PART OF EACH VISIT

WITH HER DAD.

WE FEEL AS THOUGH WE

HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH

THIS WHOLE NEW EXPERIENCE

WITH DAD.

WE ARE ABLE TO CONNECT IN

A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

WAY, IN A VERY GENUINE

WAY.

Lorie: LISTENING TO

MUSIC WE LOVE TRIGGERS THE

CHEMICAL DOPAMINE.

IN ADDITION TO PRESCRIBING

MUSIC FOR HIS CANCER

PATIENTS, SAN DIEGO

ONCOLOGIST STEVE EISENBERG

GOES A STEP FURTHER, BY

SERENADING HIM THEMSELVES.

*

Lorie: AND GET THIS:

HE WRITES SONGS SPECIFIC

TO EACH PATIENT.

* YOU'RE, A DIAMOND

JEWEL *

* YOU'RE SO COOL

* YOU MAKE ME SMILE

HE SPOKE WITH MY

HUSBAND FOR A GOOD HOUR ON

THE PHONE, LEARNING ALL

SORTS OF THINGS ABOUT ME,

MY TASTES IN MUSIC, MY

INTERESTS, MY HOBBIES,

WHAT MY GOALS ARE IN LIFE.

AND HE REALLY, I FELT,

CAPTURED IT' THE ESSENCE OF ME

IN THE SONG.

AND IT WAS JUST BEAUTIFUL,

TOUCHING.

I COULD JUST NEVER THANK

HIM ENOUGH.

Lorie: DR. EISENBERG

CITES A GROWING NUMBER OF

STUDIES PROVING MUSIC'S

VALUE.

IT IS JUST AN

UNBELIEVABLE TESTAMENT, IF

YOU WILL, TO WHAT'S BE

HAPPENING WITH MUSIC AND

HEALING AND CANCER

PATIENTS.

IT'S WHAT WE'VE ALWAYS

SUSPECTEDEDSUSPECTED, BUT NOW WE'RE

ACTUALLY SEEING SCANS AND

BRAIN ACTIVITY SORT OF

THAT IS CORROBORATING WHAT

WE WE'VE ALWAYS SORT OF

KNOWN.

* I LOVE YOU, LORD

Lorie: SO WHETHER

YOU'RE TRYING TO GET WELL

OR JUST MAINTAIN GOOD

HEALTH, MUSIC CAN HELP BY

STRENGTHENING THE MIND,

LOWERING BLOOD PRESSURE,

AND REDUCING PAIN AND

ANXIETY.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

*

Efrem: MAKE A JOYFUL

NOISE AND SEEK HEALING.

STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Efrem: FILM CRITICS

SAYS DENZEL WASHINGTON

DELIVERS A TRANSFORMATIVE

PERFORMANCE IN HIS NEXT

MOVIE, AND THAT IS NO

ACCIDENT.

I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO

SIT DOWN WITH THE TWO-TIME

ACADEMACADEMY-AWARD WINNER, WHO

IS PLAYING THE ROLE OF AN

ACTIVIST ATTORNEY.

AND HE SHARES THE

IMPORTANCE OF USING HIS

PLATFORM TO SHINE A LIGHT

ON HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH.

Efrem: DOES FAITH

REQUIRE ACTIVISM, FOR US

TO BE ACTIVE?

WELL, YOU HAVE TO USE

YOUR GIFTS.

FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS

NOTHING.

SO NOT EVERYBODY HAS TO BE

AN ACTIVIST.

A WOMAN PROPHESIZED YEARS

AND YEARS AGO THAT I WOULD

TRAVEL THE WORLD AND

PREACH TO MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE.

AND I REMEMBER -- AND I

HAVE TRAVELLED THE WORLD,

AND I DON'T KNOW IF I'M A

PREACHER, BUT THROUGH MY

WORK I HAVE SPOKEN, AND

NOW I TRY TO SPEAK MORE IN

PUBLIC.

I ASKED MY PASTOR, DOES

THAT MEAN I'M SUPPOSED TO

BE A PREACHER?

AND HE SAID, NO, YOU

ALREADY HAVE A PULPIT.

SO TRY TO BE AN AGENT FOR

GOOD.

YOU KNOW, THAT'S WHAT I'M

ALL ABOUT NOW.

I'M IN THE SERVICE

BUSINESS.

Efrem: DENZEL'S NEW

FILM IS "ROMAN JAY ISRAEL

ESQUIRE," AND THAT NAME IS

A SUBTLE NOD TO SCRIPTURE.

WE'LL HAVE A CLOSER LOOK

AT THE FILM BEFORE THIS

THANKSGIVING.

> IT IS TIME FOR YOUR

TUESDAY TWEETABLE.

WE HOPE IT WILL MOVE YOU

TO POST, TAG, TWEET AND

SHARE WITH OTHERS.

KNOW THIS: GOD HAS GIVEN

YOU GIFTS AND TALENTS, AND

HE IS NOW CALLING ON YOU

TO GIVE BACK TO HIM IN

SERVICE TO OTHERS.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, HE WILL

BLESS THOSE GIFTS AND

BLESS YOU TO DO EVEN MORE.

WITH THAT WORD, MAKE THIS

A TERRIFIC TUESDAY AND A

WONDERFUL REST OF THE

WEEK.
