> THANK YOU FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN

NEWS. I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

CONGRESS IS HOPING TO DELIVER

AS A

COUNTRY AS THE PRESIDENT

PROMISED,

THEIR LAST MINUTE PUSH TO

REPEAL THE

OBAMA CARE MANDATE MAY NOT BE

THE

FINAL PART OF THE BILL.

THE WHITE HOUSE CONSIDERS

ALTHOUGH

THEY CONSIDER THE MANDATE

BILL A TAX,

IT'S PART OF THE DRAFT BILL.

SUSAN

COLLINS IS PUSHING FOR IT.

THE BIGGEST MISTAKE WAS

PUTTING A

PROVISIONS FROM THE

AFFORDABLE CARE

ACT THAT IS NOT IN THE HOUSE

BILL. I

HOPE THAT WILL BE DROPPED.

COLLINS SAY SHE DOESN'T

LIKE THE

MANDATE AND THE PENALTY THAT

OBAMACARE

IMPOSES ON PEOPLE WHO DON'T

BUY HEALTH

INSURANCE.

THE FACT IS THIS IS PAID

OVERWHELMINGLY BY PEOPLE WHO

PAY LESS

THAN $80,000 THAT FALL IN

THAT

CATEGORY .

SHE SAYS IT MUST ALSO CUT

HEALTHCARE PREMIUMS BECAUSE

IT CAN

AFFECT THE TAX CUTS FROM

MIDDLE CLASS

FAMILIES. SHE SAYS SHE WANTS

TO CAN

YOU THE -- CUT THE BUSINESS

TAX TO

22% INSTEAD OF 20%.

THE CONGRESS WANTS TO KEEP

IT AT 20

WHICH INCLUDES THE NATIONAL

DEBT.

THE REALITY IS IF WE DON'T

GROW OUR

ECONOMY, WE WILL NEVER BE

ABLE TO PAY

FOR THINGS SUCH AS REBUILD

OUR

MILITARY. WE WILL NEVER BE

ABLE TO

AFFORD THE THINGS WE NEED THE

TO DO

TO MAKE OUR BORDER SECURE.

THE SENATE IS SET TO VOTE

AT

THANKSGIVING.

THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT THE

BILL. IF

THE SENATE LEADER ADDRESSES

TO CHANGE

THE BILL, IT WILL LEAVE A FEW

SENATORS.

THAT LEAVES SENATORS IN TOTAL

OPPOSITION ON DEMOCRATS. THEY

NEED ALL

THE VOTES THEY CAN GET.

THE EM BATTLED PRESIDENT

REFUSES TO

RESIGN AS HE REMAINS IN

COMMANDER IN

CHIEF. HE DID BY MEMBERS OF

THE

MILITARY PLACED UNDER HOUSE

ARREST

NEXT WEEK.

A MID-THE CONFUSION AND SOME

PEOPLE

WHO ARE CELEBRATING ARE NOW

CAUTIOUS

ABOUT DISCUSSING THE

SITUATION.

THIS 19-YEAR-OLD RULED

ZIMBABWE.

THE JUDGE MATTIS SEEKS AN

OPPORTUNITY TO TALK BETWEEN

NORTH

KOREA AND THE UNITED STATES.

IN AN

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW THAT WILL

HAPPEN

IF HE QUITS TESTING AND

DEVELOPING THE

NUCLEAR AND MISSILE PROGRAMS.

ERIK

GONZALEZ HAS MORE ON THIS

STORY.

BEHIND ME IS CHEYENNE

MOUNTAINS IN

COLORADO SPRINGS.

HOME TO SEVERAL GOVERNMENT

AGENCIES IN

COMMAND ALSO KNOWN AS NOR ADD

WE ARE THE MISSILE DEFENSE

NETWORK.

IF YOU CONSIDER SATELLITE AND

GROUND

SENSORS. THEY ARE ALL HERE IN

CHEYENNE

MOUNTAIN.

THEIR CAPABLE OF TRACKING

AND

INTERCEPTING NORTH KOREA

MISSILES.

TRACKING FROM THE NAVY

OFFICERS AND

STAYING ALERT TO ANY THREAT

TO NAVY

AND AMERICAN AIRSPACE.

WITHIN MINUTES OF A

LAUNCH, THE

INFORMATION IS THEN SENT UP A

CHAIN OF

COMMAND TO SECRETARY OF

DEFENSE AND

EVENTUALLY TO PRESIDENT

TRUMP. OUR

CAMERAS WERE NOT ALLOWED IN

CHEYENNE

MOUNTAIN AIR STATION, BUT

BEHIND THESE

TWO STEEL DOORS, IT'S A BASE

THAT CAN

WITHSTAND ANY NUCLEAR MISSILE

WHICH

NORTH KOREA IS THREATENING TO

DO.

IF THEY STOP SHOOTING THE

MISSILES,

STOP BUILDING MORE NUKES, WE

CAN TALK.

HE SAYS THEY CAN BRING THE

ROGUE

COUNTRY TO THE TABLE.

EVERYTHING WE DO IS

DESIGNED TO

SANCTION THE UNITED NATIONS

SECURITY

COUNCIL TO RESOLUTIONS,

UNANIMOUS

RESOLUTIONS FOR ECONOMIC

SANCTION FOR

NATIONS AROUND THE WORLD.

IT'S ALL

DESIGNED TO BRING DIPLOMATIC

AND

ECONOMIC PRESSURE ON NORTH

KOREA TO

CHANGE ITS COURSE.

HE SAYS HE WILL REMAIN

FOCUSED ON

PROTECTING OUR COUNTRY.

I BELIEVE WE HAVE TO HAVE

GOOD

STRONG DEFENSES WITH OUR

ALLIES IN

ORDER TO FIGHT WITH

DIPLOMATS.

NORTH KOREA CARRIED ITS

LAST TEST 2

MONTHS AGO BUT SEE'S NO SIGN

OF

STOPPING.

WE ARE WATCHING.

BY THE WAY, I ASKED MATTIS

ABOUT

HIS FAITH IN GOD AND DECISION

MAKING,

HE TOLD ME HE WANTS TO KEEP

THAT

PRIVATE.

COLORADO SPRINGS.

CBN NEWS.

IN

COUNCIL CANADA THEY SAY

THEIR

GRADUATES WILL BE CONSIDERED

LAWYERS

BECAUSE OF THEIR STANDARDS.

IT'S ON

ITS WAY TO CANADA'S HIGHEST

COURT.

WE TRAVEL TO BRITISH COLUMBIA

FOR THE

STORY.

WITH SOME 4,000 STUDENTS,

TRINITY

WESTERN IN COLUMBIA IS THE

FASTEST

GROWING CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY.

FOR 55 YEARS THEY HAVE BEEN

GRADUATING

STUDENTS FROM ALL OVER THE

WORLD. THEY

THOUGHT IT WAS TIME TO ADD A

LAW

SCHOOL. BUT TWO CANADIAN

OFFICIALS

REJECTED IT. THEY SAY IT

DISCRIMINATES

AGAINST THE LGBT COMMUNITY

AND SHOULD

BE DISACCREDITED WHO CLAIMS

THOSE

ALLEGATIONS ARE FALSE.

IT'S NOT PRECLUDED THESE

PEOPLE

FROM THIS EXPERIENCE THAT ARE

IDENTIFIED AND SAME SEX

ATTRACTION OR

GAY.

THAT IS NOT ACCURATE.

IT COMES DOWN TO THIS..

A COMMUNITY COVENANT WHERE

STUDENTS

ARE COMMITTED TO JESUS CHRIST

AND

MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN 1 MAN AND

ONE

WOMAN.

IT ALSO ASKS STUDENTS TO

REFRAME

FROM SEXUAL ACTIVITY OUTSIDE

OF

MARRIAGE. THIS MEANS THAT

LGBTQ

PERSONS INCLUDING MARRIED

ONES COULD

NEVER BE THEIR AUTHENTIC

SELVES WHILE

ATTENDED.

NOBODY SHOULD BE ASKED TO DO

THIS IN

ORDER TO OBTAIN AN EDUCATION.

THIS IS RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

AGAINST

EQUAL RIGHTS.

I THINK IT'S A BIG

IMPORTANT CASE

AND REALLY ABOUT WHAT KIND OF

SOCIETY

ARE WE GOING TO HAVE IN

CANADA.

I'M HOPING THE COURT WILL SAY

WE HAVE

A SOCIETY HERE THAT IS OPEN

TO A LOT

OF DIFFERENT IDEAS.

SOME TRINITY WESTERN

STUDENTS CALL

THE TARGET OF DISCRIMINATION

RIDICULOUS INCLUDING HIGHA OF

JORDAN

WHO IS A MUSLIM WHO CAME HERE

FOR

THEIR HIGHLY-ACCLAIMED

LINGUISTICS

PROGRAM. SHE SAYS HER MUSLIM

FAITH WAS

ACCEPTED.

BUT WHEN SHE DIDN'T EAT

CHICKEN.

THEY STARTED TO PREPARE

MEALS JUST

FOR ME, 1 PERSON.

THEY ACTUALLY CARE FOR

YOU. THEY

PUT YOUR NEEDS FIRST.

SHE SAYS IT HAS

IMPLICATIONS BEYOND

THE COMMUNITY IN CANADA.

IF WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO

HAVE A LAW

SCHOOL BECAUSE OF THE

CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY COVENANT SAYS, I'M

WORRIED

ABOUT ANYBODY EVEN OF NO

FAITH AT ALL,

THAT EVERYBODY'S ABILITY IS

REDUCED.

THAT IS NOT A COINCIDENCE

OF THE

UNIVERSITY'S LAW SCHOOL AND

ITS

STUDENTS IS NOW IN THE HANDS

OF THE

CANADIAN SUPREME COURT.

CBN NEWS, COLUMBIA.

ALONGSIDE

ISIS TERRORIST. STAY WITH US.

> IN SUDAN, LOCKED UP

ALONGSIDE

ISIS TERRORIST. STAY WITH US

ISIS TERRORIST. STAY WITH US

THE PERSECUTED CHURCH FOR

YEARS BUT

CHARGED WITH ESPIONAGE ALONG

WITH MILL

AT THAT -- MILITANTS.

PETER YASHIC WAS WITH

MEMBERS OF

ISIS.

ISIS WAS A MEMBER OF GUARD

AND WAS

WITH BORA BORA. WHEN HE

RETURNED, HE

WAS ONE OF THE MURDERERS WHO

SLAUGHTERED THE 20 EGYPTIANS

IN THE

SHORE. HE TOLD ME IF I WAS AN

AMERICAN

OR RUSSIAN, HE WOULD BREAK MY

NECK

IMMEDIATELY AND KILL ME. HE

TOOK OUT

THE FISHING STRINGS, QUITE

STRONG

FISHING STRINGS FROM HIS

POCKET AND

SHOWED ME HOW HE CAN KILL A

PERSON

WITHIN A FEW SECONDS WITH

THIS FISHING

STRING.

HE SAID HE IS FRIENDS WERE

OF THE

SAME NATIONAL EXTREME.

WHEN I TOLD THEM HE GOT

KILLED,

THEY STARTED TO SHOUT TO ME

AND I KNEW

THE COMPANY THAT I WAS IN AND

I

STOPPED TELLING THEM ANYMORE

NEWS.

THEY CALLED ME A FILTHY PIG

OR FILTHY

RAT AND IF I DID NOT REACT TO

THIS NEW

NAME, THEY STARTED BEATING ME

FROM

STRAPPING MY FACE OR THEY

USED A

WOODEN STICK. I GRADUALLY

LEARNED TO

LIVE WITH THE NEW NAME. I WAS

JUST

FILTHY PIG.

HOW DID IT COME TO THIS.

WHY WAS

THIS MAN DEDICATED TO HELPING

PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS WHO

HIMSELF WAS

PERSECUTED. THIS WAS IN 2015

AFTER

THE SUDANESE GOVERNMENT

ACCUSED HIM OF

SPYING ON THE GOVERNMENT.

HE WAS ALLOWED TO RETURN TO

HIM FAMILY

AFTER HE LED PRISONERS TO

CHRIST.

I STARTED TO REALIZE THERE

WAS A

PURPOSE, THE LORD HAS A

PURPOSE FOR ME

TO BE IN PRISON TO SHARE THE

GOSPEL

WITH THOSE PEOPLE AND I

STARTED TO BE

MORE COURAGEOUS TO OPEN MY

MOUTH AND

SHARE THE GOSPEL ALSO WITH

THE MUSLIMS

THAT WERE IN THE PREVIOUS

CELL WITH

ME.

IN JANUARY, 2016, A

SUDANESE COURT

SENTENCED PETER TO 20 YEARS

TO PRISON.

HIS WORK WITH HELPING THOSE

IN SUDAN

WAS CONSIDERED -- ESPIONAGE.

I WAS CONSIDERED A VERY

DANGEROUS

PERSON AND THAT I'M FROM A

SPY

ORGANIZATION OF THE UN.

NOT A MISSIONARY

ORGANIZATION?

NO.

HE EXPERIENCED PERSECUTION

BEFORE

GROWING UP IN CHECK --

CZECHOSLOVAKIA.

AFTER RED ARMY TANKS ROLLED

THROUGH

PRAGUE IN 1968. GOVERNMENT

MONITORED

HIS PARENTS.

THAT MY PARENTS WERE

DISTRIBUTING

THEM.

1 DAY HE RETURNED HOME

FROM SCHOOL

AND FOUND HIS PARENTS

MISSING.

THEY WERE ARRESTED BY

POLICE AND

INTERROGATED. APPARENTLY THE

POLICE

WANTED TO KNOW WHAT WAS GOING

ON IN

OUR HOUSE.

36 YEARS LATER, HIS

PARENTS, PETER

WAS ARRESTED FOR HIS

CHRISTIAN

ACTIVITIES ONLY THIS TIME AT

THE HANDS

OF ISLAMIST, NOT GOVERNMENT.

EARLIER WHEN HIS FATHER

GAVE HIM A

GIFT.

BY THE BOOK, THE NAME WAS

IN GERMAN

WHICH MEANS "GOD'S

UNDERGROUND IN

ENGLISH".

HE GAVE ME THIS BOOK AND SAID

READ

THIS BOOK.

IT WILL ENCOURAGE YOUR FAITH.

PETER'S FATHER DIED AT THE

AGE OF

89 WHILE PETER WAS IN PRISON.

WHAT DO YOU THINK, PETER,

HE WOULD

SAY TO YOU ABOUT YOUR TIME IN

PRISON

AND WHAT HE WOULD SAY IF HE

WERE STILL

AROUND NOW.

I'M QUITE SURE HE WOULD BE

PROUD OF

ME.

PETER WAS FREED AFTER

SPENDING 14

MONTHS IN PRISON.

HE CREDITS THE CZECH

GOVERNMENT FOR

NEGOTIATING HIS RELEASE AND

THE

PRAYERS AND SUPPORT OF THE

CHRISTIANS

AROUND THE WORLD. NEARLY HALF

A

MILLION PEOPLE SIGNED A

PETITION FOR

HIM AND THOUSANDS SENT IN

ENCOURAGING

CARDS AND LETTERS.

PETER SAID HE WAS BROUGHT TO

TEARS

WHEN HE HEARD SUDANESE WOMEN

SINGING

PRAISE SONGS IN ISLAM.

HOW DID PETER CHANGE YOU,

HOW IS

PETER YASHIC DIFFERENT NOW?

WHEN YOU COME TO THIS

SITUATION,

YOU REALIZE EVERYTHING YOU

HAVE IS A

GRACE OF GOD AND IT'S ON HIS

STRENGTH

THAT HE'S IN PRISON AND NOT

YOUR OWN

STRENGTH THAT YOU CAN SURVIVE

TO BE

FAITHFUL TO THE LAST MOMENT.

THIS IS THE LAST MOMENT WHERE

WE CAN

BE MORE THAN CONQUERORS IN

THIS

SITUATION BECAUSE HAVE OUR

OWN FAITH

IN JESUS CHRIST.

A HUMBLE SERVANT

PERSECUTED AND

THEN FREED FROM PRISON.

WAITING ON GOD

FOR VICTORY AND GRACE. GARY

LANE. CBN

NEWS, PRAGUE.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

DOLLY PARTON NEVER HAD

CHILDREN OF

HER OWN, BUT SHE LOVED

CHILDREN

DEARLY. HER NEXT PROJECT

CALLED "I

BELIEVE IN YOU" ESPECIALLY

FOR THOSE

YOUNG FANS.

THE CD IS CALLED "I

BELIEVE IN

YOU".

DOLLY PARTON HAS BEEN

MAKING HITS

FOR ALL AGES FOR MORE THAN 50

YEARS.

* IF I SHOULD STAY, WOULD

I ONLY BE

IN YOUR WAY.

HER LATEST PROJECT IS A

COLLECTION

OF SONGS ESPECIALLY FOR HER

YOUNG

FANS.

I HAVE COLLECTED SONGS

OVER THE

YEARS FOR KIDS IN GENERAL.

IT JUST SEEMED TO BE THE

RIGHT TIME.

PROCEEDS FROM THE ALBUM

BENEFIT THE

PROGRAM FOR THE LIBRARY FOR

CHILDREN

FROM BIRTH TO KINDERGARTEN.

WHEN I FOUND OUT WE WERE

ON OUR WAY

TO 1 MILLION BOOKS, I SAID

WHY NOT DO

THIS.

AS A MATTER OF FACT A COUPLE

OF THE

SONGS THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO

ME IN THE

"I BELIEVE IN YOU" CD IS THIS

CHEMO

HERO WHO SHE HAD CHEMO WHEN

SHE WAS

FOUR. SO I USED TO WRITE IT

FOR HER TO

LISTEN TO WHEN SHE WAS

RECUPERATING.

I'M A CHEMO HERO.

HER NIECE NOW IN HER 20s

HELPED

DOLLY RELEASE THIS CD IN

NASHVILLE

WHICH MARKS THE OCCASION WITH

A $1

MILLION GIFT. "I BELIEVE IN

YOU" COMES

AFTER THE SUCCESS OF DOLLY'S

MANY

MOVIES AND COLORS OF LOVE.

YOU HAVE A WAY WITH WORDS.

DOLLY SAYS HER FAITH

ALWAYS PLAYS A

ROLE IN HER WORK.

MY FAITH HAS ALWAYS BEEN

VERY

IMPORTANT TO ME. I GREW UP

VERY

RELIGIOUS. MY GRANDPA WAS A

PREACHER.

I'M NOT THAT RELIGIOUS BUT I

PRAY

EVERYDAY AND I ASK GOD TO

HELP ME IN

THE DECISIONS THAT I MAKE AND

HELP ME

WITH PEOPLE IN MY LIFE AND

LET ME GROW

UP WITH GOD.

THAT'S MY DESIRE. THAT'S MY

DREAM.

AT THE AGE OF 81, DOLLY

HAS NO

PLANS TO STOP.

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS I

WANT TO

DO.

I LOVE TO WORK. I'M NOT THE

TYPE OF

PERSON THAT CAN SIT AROUND

AND NOT

WORK.

AND SPEAKING OF WORK, THE

BIG

QUESTION, WILL THOSE FUTURE

PROJECTS

INCLUDE A 9 TO 5 SEQUEL.

I DON'T KNOW IF WE'LL EVER

DO A

SEQUEL OF 9-5. IT SHOULD BE

CALLED 925

SINCE WE ARE SO MUCH OLDER.

BUT THEY COULD DO ONE AND

MAYBE WE CAN

COME IN WITH THE OLD PEOPLE

THAT USED

TO BE THERE. THERE ARE

DIFFERENT WAYS

Efrem: "OPERATION BLESSING"

HAS BEEN

ON THE GROUND SINCE HURRICANE

HARVEY 2

MONTHS AGO.

AS WE ENTER THE

THANKSGIVING

HOLIDAYS, "OPERATION

BLESSING"

CONTINUES TO BE HARD AT WORK

THROUGHOUT EAST TEXAS HELPING

THOSE TO

RECOVER FROM HURRICANE HARVEY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS BEEN

THERE

SINCE DAY ONE HELPING PEOPLE

WITH THE

RECOVERY TO CLEAN UP HOMES

AND

BUILDING NEW HOMES. WE HELPED

SOME

RESIDENTS TO REBUILD THEIR

HOMES. WE

ARE COMING TO YOU FROM MS.

PRISCILLA'S

HOME. WHEN WE FOUND HER, SHE

WAS

LIVING IN THE DRIVEWAY IN A

BLOW UP

MATTRESS. AND THEN WE ASKED

HER TO

MOVE IN A HOTEL THAT WE GAVE

TO HER.

WE TOLD HER WE ARE GOING TO

WORK AS

HARD AS WE CAN IN THE NEXT

FEW WEEKS.

WE CAN'T COMMIT TO EVERYTHING

100%.

BUT A FEW DAYS AGO, WE

WELCOMED MS.

PRISCILLA BACK HOME FOR A

SURPRISE OF

A LIFETIME.

1, 2, 3.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

*

Efrem: WHAT A BLESSING THAT

IS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

WATCHING THIS

EDITION OF CBN NEWS. GOD

BLESS YOU.
