MARK THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M MARK MARTIN.

A SURPRISE NOT GUILTY

VERDICT IN THE CASE OF AN

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT CHARGED

WITH MURDERING A WOMAN IN

SAN FRANCISCO.

THE CASE HAS BEEN AT THE

CENTER OF THE IMMIGRATION

DEBATE IN RECENT YEARS.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THIS

STORY.

Jennifer: 32-YEAR-OLD

KATE STEINLY WAS WALKING

ON THIS SAN FRANCISCO

PEORIPEERWHEN HE WAS SHOT DEAD.

ON THE OTHER SEND WAS

JOSE.

AFTER MORE THAN A MONTH OF

TESTIMONY AND SIX DAYS OF

DELIBERATION, A JURY FOUND

HIM NOT GUILTY.

WE BELIEVE THE VERDICT

IS A CORRECT AND ACCURATE

REFLECTION OF THE LAW AND

WHAT HAPPENED.

Reporter: JOSE SAYS

HE FOUND THE GUN ON THE

PEER AND FIRED IT

ACCIDENTALLY WHILE HOLDING

IT.

STEINLY DEATH AT THE HANDS

OF AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN

A SANCTUARY CITY IS A

FLASH POINT IN THE DEBATE

OVER IMMIGRATION.

FROM DAY ONE, THIS CASE

WAS USED AS A MEANS TO

FORMATE HATE.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP OFTEN REFERENCES THE

CASE AFTER TALK ABOUT

BUILDING A BORDER WALL.

HE SAYS, "NO WONDER THE

PEOPLE OF OUR COUNTRY ARE

SO ANGRY WITH IMMIGRATION

IMMIGRATION."

ADDING THE DEPARTMENT

OF JUSTICE WILL WORK TO

ENSURE ALL LOCALITIES

PLACE THE SAFETY OF THEIR

COMMUNITIES ABOVE THE

CONVENIENCE OF CRIMINAL

ALIENS.

THE DECISION WAS A MAJOR

BLOW TO PROSECUTORS IN THE

CASE.

WE WILL RESPECT THAT

DECISION.

Reporter: AND THE

STEINLY FAMILY,

UNWITTINGLY THRUST INTO

THE CENTER OF A POLITICAL

DEBATE, TELLS THE SAN

FRANCISCO CHRONICLE THEY

WANT TO MOVE O ON WITH ON WITH THEIR

LIVES AND REMEMBER KATE ON

THEIR TERMS.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS.

Mark: G.O.P. SENATORS

ARE WORKING FOR HOLDOUTS

ON THE TAX REFORM.

THEY ARE WORKING DOWN TO

THE WIRE ON MAJOR CHANGES

THAT WOULD INCLUDE ROLLING

BACK SOME TAX CUTS.

THE TAX OVERHAUL PACKAGE

IS PREDICTED TO ADD

$1 TRILLION OVER THE NEXT

DECADE TO THE NATION'S

DEFICIT.

THE G.O.P. IS LOOKING AT A

CRITICAL FINAL VOTE TODAY.

IT WOULD BE THE FIRST TIME

THE TAX CODE HAS UNDERGONE

AN OVERHAUL IN MORE THAN

30 YEARS.

> HOUSE DEMOCRATS WANT

JOHN CONYERS TO STEP DOWN.

NANCY PELOSI CALLS THE

SEXUAL HARASSMENT

ACCUSATIONS AGAINST HIM

SERIOUS AND DISAPPOINTING.

CONYERS CONTINUES TO SAY

HE IS INNOCENT.

MEANWHILE, IN THE SENATE,

AN ETHICS PANEL IS OPENING

A PRELIMINARY INQUIRY INTO

THE ALLEGED ACTIONS OF

MINNESOTA SENATOR AL

FRANKEN.

> THE PRESIDENT TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS

CONSIDERING A PLAN TO

FORMALLY MOVE THE U.S.

EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM.

THIS COMES MONTHS AFTER

PRESIDENT TRUMP SIGNED A

WAIVER TO TEMPORARILY KEEP

THE EMBASSY IN TEL AVIV.

OFFICIALS SAY THAT THE

PLAN IS NOT FINAL, BUT THE

ADMINISTRATION HAS

NOTIFIED U.S. EMBASSIES

OVERSEAS.

IF THE EMBASSY IS

RELOCATED, IT WOULD MEAN

THAT JERUSALEM WOULD BE

OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZED AS

ISRAEL'S CAPITAL.

HOWEVER, U.S. OFFICIALS

WARN THE MOVE COULD

TRIGGER PALESTINIAN

PROTESTS.

> A RECENT HOMELAND

SECURITY BULLETIN SUGGESTS

TERRORISTS WANT TO USE A

NEW TACTIC, USING ARMED

DRONES TO CARRY OUT

ATTACKS.

ERIK ROSALES BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Reporter: IMAGINE

THIS BASEBALL STADIUM

BEHIND ME FILLED WITH

FANS.

NOW IMAGINE A DRONE FILLED

WITH CHEMICALS FLIES OVER

THEM, RELEASING THE

CHEMICALS, AND KILLS THEM.

ACCORDING TO THE D.H.S.,

THERE HAS BEEN AN UPTAKE

IN TERRORIST INTERESTS FOR

USING UNMANNED AERIAL

SYSTEMS AT WEAPONS TO DROP

CHEMICALS.

YOU CAN TAKE A QUAD COP

COPTER OFF THE SHELF THAT

YOU CAN GET AT RADIOSHACK

OR BEST BUY OR AMAZON, AND

YOU CAN PUT A DEVICE ON IT

FOR 99 CENTS, AND FLY OVER

AN AREA, AND THERE IS A

CHEMICAL WEAPON.

Reporter: THERE IS A

RESEARCH CENTER WORKING TO

DEFEND OUR COUNTRY FROM

THREATS IN THAT REGION.

ROMAN SAYS ISIS ALREADY

USES DRONES ON THE BATTLE

FIELD TO DROP GRENADES.

AND THEY'RE CONCERNED

ABOUT DRONES TARGETING

JETLINERS.

IT STATES UNMANNED

AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS HIGHLIGHT

SUSTAINED CONCERNS, AND

THEY SAY IT COULD INCLUDE

TOXINS.

THEY DEAL WITH CLOSE CALLS

BETWEEN DRONES AND

JETLINERS TAKING OFF AND

COMING IN FOR LANDINGS.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS

ANYWHERE IN THE

CONSTITUTION THAT SOMEONE

CAN USE A DRONE WITHOUT

REGULATIONS.

Reporter: IT COMES

DAYS BEFORE THE HOLIDAY

SEASON, ONE OF THE BIGGEST

TRAVEL TIMES OF THE YEAR.

THERE IS A CONCERN

REGARDING THE REGULATIONS

IN THE COMMERCIAL

AIRLINES.

WHAT ABOUT GOVERNMENT

BUILDINGS AND PEOPLE'S

HOME TROSE.

ReporterHOMES?

Reporter: ISIS IS

LOSING GROUND ON THE

BATTLEFIELD, BUT CONTINUES

TO HAVE BRANCHES

THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

THAT THERE IS SO MUCH THAT

GETS LEFT ON THE

CUTTING-ROOM FLOOR.

THERE IS SO MANY THAT IS

REALLY INFLUENTIAL, SO

MANY GOD MOMENTS THAT

REALLY WE CAN'T INCLUDE IN

Mark: CAITLIN BURKE,

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR

WORK ON THIS.

> UP NEXT, THEY

CHRONICLED LIKE ADOPTION

JOURNEY, AND INSPIRED

SOCIAL MEDIA ALONG THE

WAY.

THEY TAKE US THROUGH THE

UPS AND DOWNS OF THEIR

STORY, NEXT.

Mark: WHEN YOU'RE

LOOKING FOR INFORMATION

ABOUT ADOPTION, A GOOGLE

SEARCH CAN HELP.

BUT THERE IS NOTHING LIKE

HEARING FROM SOMEONE WITH

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.

CHARLENE AARON INTRODUCES

US TO ONE FAMILY WHO

STARTED A DAILY

YouTube CHANNEL TO

SHOW EVERYONE WHAT

INFERTILITY AND ADOPTION

COULD LOOK LIKE, AND GOD

LED THEM TO MORE THAN THEY

WERE EXPECTING.

I LOVE, LOVE LIFE.

Reporter: TO HEAR

PHIL AND ALEX TELL IT, ALICE TELL IT,

JUST BEING TOGETHER WAS A

MIRACLE.

HE WAS THE LOUD, CRAZY

TYPE, WHERE YOU KNEW HE

WAS COMING.

FOR HER, SHE WAS LIKE,

THAT IS TOTALLY NOT EVER

GOING TO BE A GUY I WOULD

DATE OR MARRY.

I WAS NOT INTERESTED.

BUT LOVE TOOK OVER.

AS A MARRIED COUPLE, THE

PASTOR AND NURSE WANTED

MORE.

MY CAREER THAT I REALLY

WANTED, I WANTED TO BE A

MOM.

AND THEN IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

HONESTLY, THERE WERE

THESE MOMENTS WHERE WE

WERE LIKE, GOD, IF YOU'RE

SO GOOD, WHY DO YOU KEEP

US FROM WHAT IS GOOD?

THE DEDICATION TO THEIR

DREAM LED THEM TO PURSUE

ADOPTION.

ALMOST IMMEDIATELY, GOD

GAVE THEM A SIGN.

A PREGNANT WOMAN IN THEIR

CHURCH WANTED TO GIVE THEM

THEIR BABY UP FOR

ADOPTION.

IT SAID, WE'RE 37 AND A

HALF WEEKS PREGNANT AND

LOOKING FOR A FAMILY TO

ADOPT.

Reporter: NINE WEEKS

LATER, KIMBERLY GRACE WAS

BORN.

PHIL AND ALICE DECIDED TO

ADD TO THEIR FAMILY AGAIN,

BUT THIS TIME THEY DIDN'T

WANT TO DO IT ALONE.

ALEX HAD AN IDEA: WHY

DON'T THEY USE YouTube

TO PUT THEMSELVES OUT

THERE.

PHIL WASN'T SO SURE.

WHO WOULD WATCH?

WHY WOULD THEY WATCH?

AND WHAT WOULD BE THE

POINT OF THEM WATCHING?

Reporter: ALEX

PREVAILED, AND SOON THEY

WERE DOCUMENTING THEIR

INFERTILITY TREATMENTS AND

ADOPTION JOURNEY.

OKAY, ARE YOU READY?

NO.

Reporter: ALONG THE

WAY, THEIR YouTube

AUDIENCE BEGAN TO GROW,

AND THEN SOMETHING THEY

DIDN'T SEE COMING.

WE GOT CONTACTED BY A

BIRTH MOM, ASKING IF WE

WOULD CONSIDER ADOPTION

AGAIN.

Reporter: A WOMAN

FOLLOWING THEM ON SOCIAL

MEDIA ASKED IF THEY WOULD

BE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING

HER BABY, DUE IN A FEW

WEEKS.

WE SAID, YES, GOD, DO

WHATEVER YOU WANT WITH US.

AND THIS HAPPENED.

Reporter: THEY PUT

TREATMENTS ON HOLD AND

BEGAN DOCUMENTING THEIR

SECOND ADOPTION.

AND THEY SHARED IT ALL,

HIGHS AND LOWS, WITH RAW

EMOTION.

LIKE, WE'RE MEETING OUR

DAUGHTER TOMORROW.

INSANE.

TOMORROW.

IT'S GOING TO BE HARD NOT

SEEING HER FOR ANOTHER 12

HOURS.

WE WANTED THE BE HONEST

WITH YOU GUYS ON HOW

THINGS ARE AND TELL YOU

THE TRUTH, AND NOT JUST

GLAMOURIZE IT.

Reporter: Reporter: AS THEY

EDITED THE ADOPTION STORY,

THOUSANDS WATCHED.

YOU WANT TO HOLD

CARRIE?

THE OVERWHELMING

MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WERE

COMING TO OUR CHANNEL AND

SAYING, THE LOVE THAT YOUR

BIRTH MOM IS SHOWING, IS

MORE THAN I THINK I COULD

EVER SHOW MY OWN CHILDREN.

AND THE SECOND WAS, I NOW

WANT TO GO AND LOVE PEOPLE

IN THAT SAME WAY.

WHAT WE DID BY TELLING HER

STORY WAS ACTUALLY PULL

OUT OF THE HEART OF WHAT

WE WANT TO DO, WHICH IS

MULTIPLY THE LOVE THAT IS

IN US.

Reporter: YOU'LL SEE

THE THE FAMILY WEARING

T-SHIRTS THAT SAY "LOVE

MULTIPLIES."

WHAT STARTED AS AN

ADOPTION FUNDRAISER HAS

NOW EVOLVED INTO A

FULL-TIME CALLING.

PHIL AND ALICE WANTED TO

BECOME THE RESOURCE THEY

NEVER HAD.

IF SOMETHING DOESN'T

EXIST, IT IS OUR

RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE IT

HAPPEN.

AND SO WE CREATED "LOVE

MULTIPLIES," AND IT IS A

PLACE FOR PEOPLE TO COME

AND FEEL ENCOURAGED AND

SUPPORTED AND EDUCATED

ABOUT INFERTILITY, ABOUT

ADOPTIONS, AND ABOUT

GROWING HEALTHY FAMILIES.

THE NUMBER ONE COMMENT

THAT WE HEAR BACK IN THIS

PHASE OF LIFE OF TRYING TO

BUILD A FAMILY BUT IT IS

NOT HAPPENING IS, I JUST

DON'T HAVE ANYONE THAT I

CAN TURN TO.

NO ONE UNDERSTANDS MY

GRIEF.

Reporter: AND WHAT IS

NEXT FOR THE COUPLE?

STILL FOLLOWING THEIR

DREAM.

SINCE OUR INTERVIEW,

ANOTHER FERTILITY

TREATMENT AND ANOTHER

HEARTBREAK.

IT'S NEGATIVE.

I'M SO SORRY.

Reporter: BUT THEY

KNOW GOD HAS A PLAN, AND

MAYBE MORE SURPRISES FOR

THEM IN THEIR FUTURE.

HAPPY ADOPTION DAY!

HAPPY ADOPTION DAY!

CAN YOU SAY WORLD?

WORLD ADOPTION DAY!

Reporter: AND WE'RE

ALL INVITED ALONG ON THE

JOURNEY.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT

ADOPTION MEANS?

IT MEANS SMILEY FACE.

Mark: WHAT AN AMAZING

STORY.

PRECIOUS CHILDREN,

PRECIOUS PARENTS, WHAT A

GREAT MINISTRY.

> WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK

WITH MORE OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

STICK AROUND.

Mark: THE WEEKEND IS

HERE, AND IF YOUR PLANS

INCLUDE GOING TO THE

MOVIES, WE HAVE YOUR

FAMILY-FRIENDLY MOVIE

REVIEW FROM "PLUGGED IN."

THIS WEEK THEY'RE TAKING A

LOOK AT THE MAN WHO

INVENTED CHRISTMAS.

I'VE RUN OUT OF IDEAS.

ARE WE IN TROUBLE?

OF COURSE NOT.

Reporter: IN THE

MOVIE, "THE MAN WHO

INVENTED CHRISTMAS," IT IS

1843, AND DICKENS IS

HAVING SOME WRITING

PROBLEMS.

SO YOU'VE HAD A COUPLE

OF FLOPS.

WELL, WHO HASN'T?

Reporter: HE HAS HAD

SUCCESS IN THE PAST, BUT

HIS LAST THREE WORKS

HAVEN'T DONE VERY WELL,

AND HIS PUBLISHER IS

PRESSING HIM FOR SOMETHING

FRESH AND EXCITING.

IT IS CHRISTMAS EVE,

AND THE SPIRITS POUR INTO

THE NIGHT.

Reporter: THEN,

THANKS TO THE COLORFUL

BEDTIME STORIES OF A NEWLY

ARRIVED HOUSE MAID, DEC

KINDICKENS STARTS TO PIECE

TOGETHER A MAIN IDEA.

IF YOU'RE LUCKY, A

CHARACTER WILL APPEAR.

SCROOGE!

SHUT THE WINDOW.

DO YOU THINK I'M MADE OF

MONEY?

Reporter: AS THE

CHARACTERS TAKE SHAPE,

THEY BEGIN HAUNTING HIS

WAKING HOURS, POPPING UP

AND ESSENTIALLY TELLING

HIM WHAT TO WRITE.

YOU'LL TELL A STORY OF

CHRISTMAS, BUT IT WILL BE

A STORY OF EXPEERT SPIRITS AND

VISIONS.

AND HE'LL HAVE TO GET THE

WORK DONE SOON FOR

CHRISTMAS IS ONLY A FEW

WEEKS AWAY.

THIS HOLIDAY PICK TELLS US

THE BACK STORY OF THE

TALE.

THAT MAKES FOR AN ENGAGING

FILM THAT ENCOURAGES

VIEWERS TO HELP OTHERS AND

BE THE BEST SELF THEY CAN

BE.

THE REAL STORY OF JESUS'

BIRTH IS NEVER ACCOUNTED

FOR, BUT THERE ARE HOLIDAY

WARMTHS TO ENJOY HERE.

SO I'M GIVING "THE MAN WHO

INVENTED CHRISTMAS" A 4.5

OUT OF 5 FOR

FAMILY-FRIENDLINESS.

PLUGGING YOU INTO THE

MOVIES, I'M CHERYL WILHEM

ME FROM "FOCUS ON THE

FAMILY."

TESTS RESULTS GIVEN TO

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC APPEAR

TO BACK UP THE CLAIMS THAT

THE REMAINS OF A LIMESTONE

CAVE ENSHRINED IN THE

CHURCH OF THE SEPTEMBER

ARSEPSEPLECHER.THE MAGAZINE SAYS

SCIENTISTS WERE CONFIRM

THAT THIS SITE IS INDEED

THE SITE OF THE BURIAL

PLACE OF CHRIST.
