Announcer: THIS IS

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

Mark: THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M MARK MARTIN.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TAKING

ON CONGRESS OVER GUN

CONTROL.

HE MET WITH A BIPARTISAN

GROUP OF LAWMAKERS AT THE

WHITE HOUSE ON WEDNESDAY

TO URGENTLY DISCUSSION

ACTION NEEDED TO PREVENT

MASS SHOOTINGS AT

AMERICA'S SCHOOLS.

GARY LANE HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT WAS OFTEN AT

ODDS WITH BOTH THE

NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION

AND SOME MEMBERS OF HIS

OWN PARTY.

HE MADE IT CLEAR HE WANTS

STEPS TAKEN TO PREVENT

FUTURE MASS SHOOTINGS LIKE

THE ONE IN FLORIDA.

BUT CHRIS MURPHY TOLD THE

PRESIDENT HE DOUBTS

CONGRESS CAN EVEN AGREE ON

SOMETHING SIMPLE, WHAT

MOST AMERICANS SAY THEY

WANT, EXPANDED BACKGROUND

CHECKS.

IT WORKS, PEOPLE WANT

IT, BUT WE CAN'T DO IT.

President Trump: BUT

YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT

PRESIDENT NOW.

YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT

PRESIDENT.

AND I THINK MAYBE YOU HAVE

A DIFFERENT ATTITUDE, TOO.

I THINK PEOPLE WANT TO GET

IT DONE.

Reporter: BUT THERE

IS WIDE DISAGREEMENT EVEN

WITHIN BOTH POLITICAL

PARTIES ON WHAT MEASURES

SHOULD BE TAKEN.

SENATOR DIANE WEINSTEIN

SAYS ASSAULT WEAPONS

SHOULD BE BANNED.

President Trump: IT

IS A VERY COMPLEX

SOLUTION.

YOU HAVE HAVE WEAPONS ON

THE STREET -- THAT'S WHAT

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WITH

THE BLACK MARKET.

OH, NO, YOU GO INTO THE

STORE AND YOU CAN BUY AN

AR-15.

President Trump: YOU

CAN.

YOU CAN BUY ALL THESE

WEAPONS.

President Trump: THIS

IS WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO DISCUSS.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT WANTS CONGRESS

TO ACT QUICKLY.

BUT IN CASE THEY DON'T, HE

IS TAKING SOME STEPS.

AMONG THEM: REFORMED

F.B.I. PROGRAMS, EXPAND

ACCESS TO PROGRAMS TO

TREAT MENTAL ILLNESS,

ESTABLISH A FEDERAL

TASKFORCE ON SCHOOL

SAFETY.

IMPLEMENT EDUCATION

PROGRAMS TO HELP EMPLOY

MORE MILITARY VETERANS AS

TEACHERS.

AND THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE

WANTS TO EMPOWER SOME

TRAINED TEACHERS TO BE

ABLE TO CARRY CONCEALED

GUNS IN SCHOOLS.

AND HE WANTS TO TAKE WHAT

HE SAYS IS A COMMON SENSE

STEP TO RAISE THE LEGAL

AGE TO PURCHASE A GUN FROM

18 TO 31.

THE MEASURE IS OPPOSED BY

THE N.R.A., AND EVEN SOME

DEMOCRATS.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Mark: POLICE IN

GEORGIA ARRESTED A HIGH

SCHOOL TEACHER ACCUSED OF

BARRICADING HIMSELF IN A

CLASSROOM AND FIRING A

HANDGUN.

AUTHORITIES TOOK INTO

AUTHRITY JES JESSE JESSE DAVIDSON.

POLICE SAY IT DID NOT

APPEAR DAVIDSON WANTED TO

HURT SOMEONE.

HE APPARENTLY FIRED AT AN

EXTERIOR WINDOW.

NO STUDENTS WERE IN THE

CLASSROOM WHEN HE

ALLEGEDLY FIRED THE

WEAPON.

> ONE STUDENT HURT HER

ANKLE RUNNING AWAY.

DALTON, GEORGIA, IS

90 MILES WEST OF ATLANTA.

> THE TRIAL BEGINS TODAY

FOR THE WIFE OF THE GUNMAN

WHO SHOT AND KILLED 49

PEOPLE AT A FLORIDA

NIGHTCLUB IN 2016.

NORA SALMAN IS ACCUSED AND

ABETTING HER HUSBAND.

SALMAN HAS DENIED ANY

INVOLVEMENT OR PRIOR

KNOWLEDGE OF HER LATE

HUSBAND'S PREMEDITATED

PLANS.

BUT LATER CONFESSED TO

SCOUTING OUT THE AREA, AND

HELPING TO BUY THE WEAPON.

LAWYERS MAY SAY SHE FEARED

FOR HER CHILD AND HER

CHILD'S SAFETY.

SHE FACES LIFE IN PRISON.

> THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS AIMING

TO BETTER PROSECUTE

TERRORISTS IN THE U.S. AND

IS PUSHING FOR OTHER

COUNTRIES TO DO THE SAME.

THE U.S. HOSTED A TWO-DAY

SUMMIT IN WASHINGTON THIS

WEEK TO ADVOCATE FOR THE

PROSECUTION OF CITIZENS

TURNED FOREIGN TERRORISTS.

AND THEY PUSHED FOR OTHER

COUNTRIES TO BETTER SHARE

DATA AND INFORMATION TO

FIND DETAINED TERRORISTS

AND CALLED TO CUT OFF

TERROR FINANCING.

> ONE OF PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S LONGEST SERVING

AND MOST TRUSTED AIDES IS

LEAVING THE WHITE HOUSE.

HOPE HICKS, WHO RARELY

SPEAKS IN PUBLIC, IS

MOVING ON.

THE 29-YEAR-OLD'S

ANNOUNCED DEPARTURE COMES

A DAY AFTER SHE WAS

INTERVIEWED FOR EIGHT

HOURS BY THE HOUSE PANEL

INVESTIGATING RUSSIA'S

INTERFERENCE IN THE 2016

ELECTION, WHERE SHE

ADMITTED THAT OCCASIONALLY

TELLING WHITE LIES, BUT

NOT ABOUT ANYTHING RELATED

TO THE RUSSIA PROBE.

SHE IS A TRUSTEDED ADVISOR

TTRUSTED ADVISORTO THE TRUMP FAMILY.

AND HER ABSENCE WILL BE

FELT IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

> THOUSANDS CAME TO THE

CAPITAL ON WEDNESDAY TO

PAY THEIR RESPECTS TO THE

REVEREND BILLY GRAHAM AS

THE NATION CELEBRATED HIS

LIFE WHILE HIS BODY LAY IN

HONOR IN THE ROTUNDA.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US NOR MORE FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: IT WAS AN

HISTORIC MOMENT ON CAPITAL CAPITOL

HILL, WHEN THEY HONORED

AMERICA'S PASTOR, REVEREND

BILLY GRAHAM.

President Trump:

EVERYWHERE HE WENT, BILLY

GRAHAM DELIVERED THE SAME

BEAUTIFUL MESSAGE: GOD

LOVES YOU.

Reporter: BILLY

GRAHAM PREACHED THE GOSPEL

TO MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

THROUGHOUT HIS LIFETIME,

INCLUDING A YOUNG DONALD

TRUMP.

President Trump: MY

FATHER SAID TO ME, C'MON,

SON, AND COME ON, MOM,

LET'S GO SEE BILLY GRAHAM

AT YANKEE STADIUM.

AND IT WAS SOMETHING VERY

SPECIAL.

Reporter: REVEREND

GRAHAM IS JUST THE FOURTH

CITIZEN TO LIE IN HONOR

HERE AND THE FIRST FAITH

LEADER.

SHOWTHOSE BEFORE HIM INCLUDE

TWO CAPITAL POLICE

OFFICERS KILLED IN THE

LINE OF DUTY AND CIVIL

RIGHTS ICON ROSA PARKS.

THE IDEA FIRST CAME FROM

CONGRESSMAN PATRICK

McHENRY, WHO SUGGESTED

IT TO HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL

RYAN.

I THOUGHT IT WAS ONLY

FITTING AND RIGHT THAT WE

PAY THAT LAST HONOR.

Reporter: RYAN TOLD

CBN NEWS IT WAS AN EASY

DECISION TO MAKE.

WE GOT TOGETHER AND

DECIDED THIS IS OBVIOUSLY

SOMETHING WE SHOULD DO.

Reporter: REVEREND

GRAHAM'S FAMILY JOINED THE

PRESIDENT AND LAWMAKERS

FOR A MEMORIAL SERVICE

AFTER THE CASKET ARRIVED

IN WASHINGTON.

SPEAKER RYAN SAID, IF

THERE WAS EVER AN AMERICAN

WORTHY OF THIS HONOR, IT

IS REVEREND GRAHAM.

WHEN I COUNTRY WAS ON

ITS KNEES, HE REMINDED US,

HE CONVINCED US, THAT IS

EXACTLY WHEN WE FIND OUR

GRACE AND OUR STRENGTH.

Reporter: SENATE

MAJORITY LEADER MITCHELL

McCONNELL DESCRIBED MAN

AS A REMARKABLY HUMBLE MAN

WHO JUST WANTED TO SHARE

THE GOOD NEWS WITH AS MANY

SOULS AS HE POSSIBLY

COULD.

BILLY GRAHAM LIFTED UP

OUR NATION.

NOT BECAUSE HE OCCUPIED

THE SPOTLIGHT SO

MASTERFULLY, BUT BECAUSE

HE KNEW HE WASN'T THE ONE

WHO BELONGED IN IT.

Reporter: FOLLOWING

THE MEMORIAL SERVICE,

FRANKLIN GRAHAM AND OTHER

MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY

GREETED MANY OF THOSE WHO

WAITED IN LONG LINES TO

SAY FAREWELL TO THE FAMED

EVANGELIST.

I THINK THIS SPEAKS A

LOT FOR THIS LONG LINE,

AND THE PEOPLE THAT ARE

TRAVELLING A LONG WAYS TO

CHARLOTTE AND TO HERE JUST

TO WALK BY, TO PAY

RESPECTS TO THIS MAN WHO

CHAIRCHECHANGED THE WORLD.

HE NEVER WANTED

ATTENTION FOR HIMSELF.

ALWAYS POINTING ATTENTION

TO THE LORD.

Reporter: HIS BODY

NOW HEADS BACK TO NORTH

CAROLINA FOR FRIDAY'S

FUNERAL, WHICH PRESIDENT

TRUMP AND THE FIRST LADY

ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN NEWS.

Mark: COMING UP, IN

PUBLIC SCHOOLS ACROSS

CANADA, STUDENTS MAY SOON

LEARN ABOUT THE THREE

"R"s, AND THE COUNTLESS

POSSIBLE GENDERS.

SEE HOW CHILDREN ARE

ALLEGEDLY BEING

INDOCTRINATED BY A RADICAL

SEX-ED CURRICULUM.

THAT'S NEXT.

Mark: A RADICAL

SEX-ED CURRICULUM IS BEING

PUSHED IN CANADIAN PUBLIC

SCHOOLS BY THE LGBT

COMMUNITY.

IT HAS PARENTS AFRAID

THEIR CHILDREN WILL BECOME

CONFUSED AND EVEN

BRAINWASHED.

AS WE WENDY GRIFFITH

DISCOVERED, THERE COULD BE

A SILVER LINING.

IT COULD AWAKEN A SLEEPING

CHURCH.

A FAMILY CAN BE MADE UP

IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS.

Wendy: IT IS CALLED

SOGI FOR SEXUAL

ORIENTATION.

THEY SAY THAT GENDER IS

FLUID.

IN OTHER WORDS, YOUR

GENDER IS NOT DEPENDENT ON

WHAT PARTS YOU WERE BORN

WITH, BUT RATHER WHAT YOU

FEEL LIKE IN THE MOMENT.

THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT

ARE BOYS.

THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE

GIRLS.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO'S

GENDER MIGHT BE A LITTLE

BIT OF BOTH OR MIGHT EVEN

BE NEITHER.

Wendy: LESSONS

INCLUDE BOOKS ABOUT

TRANSGENDER CHILDREN, SUCH

AS "10,000 DRESSES," AND

SONGS LIKE "THE RAINBOW

SONG."

* GENDER WON'T DECIDE THE

CHOICES WE MAKE *

Wendy: THE SOGI

CURRICULUM STARTED IN

BRITISH COLUMBIA IN 2016

AND IS QUICKLY SPREADING

THROUGHOUT CANADA.

I JUST THOUGHT, WHO

DECIDED THAT THIS WAS OKAY

TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN?

Wendy: AUTHOR AND

INSPIRATIONAL SPEAKER LAUR

LAURALIN TYLER JOHNSON.

SOME KIDS ARE REACTING

VERY EMOTIONALLY, AND

THEY'RE IN FEAR.

WILL I SUDDENLY STRUGGLE

WITH FEELING LIKE A

DIFFERENT GENDER INSIDE OF

MY BODY?

Wendy: KERRY SIMPSON

CALLS THE CURRICULUM

NOTHING SHORT OF CHILD

ABUSE.

ALL OF THOSE BEAUTIFUL

QUALITIES THAT MAKE YOUNG

GIRLS BEAUTIFUL GIRLS AND

WOMEN ARE BEING BASICALLY

VILIFIED.

THE THINGS THAT MAKE OUR

BOYS BOYS ARE BEING TAKEN

FROM THEM.

THINGS OF EQUATING YOUNG

MEN FROM BEING STRONG

PROTECTORS IS NOW

SOMETHING EVIL.

Wendy: BUT MORGAN, A

TRANS SEXUAL AND

SUPPORTER, CLAIMS IT IS

ABOUT ACCEPTANCE, AND NOT

INDOCTRINATION.

THE IDEA IS TO TEACH

KIDS THERE ARE GAY KIDS

AND GAY PARENTS AND TRANS

KIDS AND TRANS PARENTS,

AND EVERYBODY IS WANTED

AND DESIRED.

THAT'S WHAT OUR HUMAN

RIGHTS CODE SAYS.

IT IS THE ROLE OF SCHOOLS

TO TEACH THE FOLLOWING OF

OUR LAWS, RIGHT?

Wendy: SIMPSON

DISAGREES, SAYING SHE SEES

SOGI'S REAL GOAL AS...

I'LL TRAIN OUR CULTURE

INTO ONE WHERE ANYTHING

GOES, NO BOUNDARIES, NO

VALUES, NO MORALS.

IT IS A HEDONISTIC CULT.

Wendy: ANOTHER

BLARING EXAMPLE: DRAG

QUEEN STORY TIME.

IT IS HAPPENING IN CANADA

AND AMERICA.

WHERE SOME PUBLIC SCHOOLS

AND LIBRARIES INVITE DRAG

QUEENS.

SOME DRESS LIKE TORN

DEMONS, TO READ TO YOUNG

CHILDREN.

IT IS A SOCIAL

DECONSTRUCTION OF THE

AGENDA.

THEY'RE USING CHILDREN,

LITTLE FIVE-YEAR-OLDS, TO

ACCOMPLISH THIS, AND

PARENTS ARE WAKING UP AND

SAYING NO.

Wendy: WHEN ASKED

ABOUT PARENTS' RIGHTS,

O.J. SAYS --

ACTUALLY, IN CANADA,

PARENTS RIGHTS ARE

LIMITED, AND CHILDREN'S

RIGHTS ARE PUT AHEAD.

THE CHILD HAS THE RIGHT TO

BE PROTECTED FROM THE

PARENTS.

Wendy: CANADA IS

KNOWN AS ONE OF THE MOST

GAY-FRIENDLY COUNTRIES IN

THE WORLD, WITH MANY OF

THEIR LARGEST CITIES

FEATURING THEIR OWN GAY

VILLAGES, LIKE HERE IN

VANCOUVER, WHICH HAS

LITERALLY ROLLED OUT THE

RAINBOW ROAD.

MOST GAYS, LIKE DAVE DAVEY

SUPPORTS SOGI.

THE CHANGE THAT WE HAVE

TO SEE IS SOMETIMES THE

PARENTS.

THE KIDS ARE DOING

ACTUALLY REALLY OKAY.

THIS IS VERY SCARY

STUFF.

Wendy: PASTOR KEVIN

KAVANAGH SAYS THIS IS FAR

MORE SERIOUS THAN MOST

CANADIAN CHRISTIANS

REALIZE.

OUR PROBLEM IS NOT THE

TEACHERS, THE EDUCATORS,

THE ADMINISTRATORS.

THIS IS A BATTLE IN THE

HEAVENLY.

Wendy: HE SAYS SATAN

IS GOING AFTER THEIR MOST

VULNERABLE: THE CHILDREN.

THE LITTLE GIRL CAME

HOME IN TEARS BECAUSE THE

TEACHER HAD TOLD HER,

SINCE SHE WAS PLAYING WITH

SOME TOYS IN THE CLASS

THAT WERE DEEMED TO BE

MASCULINE IN NATURE, THAT

SHE WAS LIKELY A BOY IN A

GIRL'S BODY.

THE MOTHER WENT TO THE

SCHOOL THE VERY NEXT DAY,

AND INSTEAD OF HAVING ANY

SORT OF TOLERANCE OR

SUPPORT OR UNDERSTANDING,

SHE WAS ACTUALLY CALLED

NAMES.

SHE WAS TOLD THAT SHE WAS

A HOMOPHOBE AND A BIGOT.

Wendy: WITH THAT IN

MIND, TYLER THOMSON,

SIMPSON, AND PASTOR KEVIN,

ARE SPREADING THEIR

MESSAGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY

AND IN TOWNHALL MEETINGS.

THE HATRED AND THE

ANGER AND THE BULLYING

THAT CAME AGAINST US, EVEN

THOUGH WE SAID, WE LOVE

YOU, WE DON'T TAKE FROM

YOU THE OPPORTUNITY AND

THE FREEDOM TO LIVE AS YOU

CHOOSE, WE LOVE YOU, BUT

WE DO NOT AGREE WITH YOU.

Wendy: PASTOR KEVIN

BELIEVES CANADIAN

CHRISTIANS ARE IN A 2

CHRONICLES 20 MOMENT.

THE WORD WAS THIS:

THIS BATTLE IS NOT YOURS,

JOHOSAFAT, THIS BATTLE IS

THE LORD.

THE CHURCH IS BEGINNING

TO PREPARE FOR WHAT IT

TAKES TO FIGHT FOR OUR

KIDS.

Wendy: THE BATTLE

HERE IN CANADA IS FAR FROM

OVER, BUT MANY CHRISTIAN

LEADERS SAY IT MAY BE THE

ISSUE THAT CAUSES A

ONCE-SLEEPING CHURCH TO

RISE UP AND BE HEARD.

WENDY GRIFFITH, CBN NEWS,

VANCOUVER.

Mark: STILL

AHEAD...THEY WERE A FAMILY

WHO FACED A

THOUSAND-DOLLAR A MONTH

JUMP IN THEIR HEALTH

PREMIUMS, UNTIL THEY

DISCOVERED A FAITH-BASED

SOLUTION.

LEARN ABOUT THE CHRISTIAN

HEALTH SHARE PROGRAMS.

Mark: WELCOME BACK.

FINDING AFFORDABLE HEALTH

CARE IS STILL JUST A DREAM

FOR MANY AMERICANS.

AS CAITLIN BURKE REPORTS,

CHRISTIANS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY ARE TURNING TO A

FAITH-BASED SOLUTION.

Caitlin: AS

WASHINGTON TANGLES OVER

HEALTH INSURANCE, MANY

AMERICANS ARE TAKING

MATTERS INTO THEIR OWN

HANDS.

I WANTED SOMETHING THAT

WASN'T GOING TO BE THE

SAME SORT OF TRAP I HAD

BEEN IN.

Reporter: THIS

ATTORNEY AND HIS WIFE,

JENNIFER, HAVE THREE YOUNG

BOYS AND A BABY ON THE

WAY.

TWO YEARS AGO THEY PAID

$500 A MONTH FOR

INSURANCE.

THE PREMIUMS HAVE BEEN

STEADILY RISING, AND THIS

YEAR WOULD HAVE HIT $1500

A MONTH, A 52% JUMP FROM

WHERE IT STARTED.

WE TRIED TO FIND THE

BEST DEALS THAT WE CAN,

AND EVEN THE BEST DEALS WE

COULD FIND WERE GOING UP

AND UP.

AND ACCORDING TO OUR

INSURANCE BROKER,

EVERYBODY'S WAS GOING UP

BECAUSE OF OBAMACARE, AND

WE COULD CHOOSE A

DIFFERENT PROVIDER, BUT

THE DIFFERENCE MAY BE $10

OR $15 A MONTH.

THERE WASN'T GOING TO BE A

HUGE SAVINGS, WHICHEVER

INSURANCE COMPANY WE WENT

WITH.

Caitlin: SO STEVEN

AND HIS FAMILY TOOK A LEAP

OF FAITH BY APPROACHING

HEALTH CARE IN A MORE

CHRISTIAN WAY.

YOUR BROTHERS AND

SISTERS IN CHRIST HAVE

COMMITTED THEMSELVES AS

BEING PART OF THIS FAMILY

THAT LOVES YOU ENOUGH TO

SAY, I'M GOING TO HELP YOU

OUT WHEN YOU'RE BURDEN

EXCEEDS YOUR ABILITY TO

BEAR IT.

Caitlin: THERE ARE A

NUMBER OF CHRISTIAN

HEALTH-SHARING MINISTERS,

INCLUDING CHRISTIAN HEALTH

CARE MINISTRIES, AND

LIBERTY HEALTH CARE.

UNLIKE TRADITIONAL

INSURANCE COMPANIES, A

HEALTH SHARE COLLECTS

MONTHLY DUES AND

DISTRIBUTES THE MONEY TO

MEMBERS WHO HAVE MEDICAL

BILLS THAT EXCEED AN

ANNUAL AMOUNT THEY HAVE

SELECTED.

WE SELECTED FOR OUR

FAMILY TO HAVE OUR OWN

HOUSEHOLD RESPONSIBILITY

OF $5,000 A YEAR.

WE KNOW OUT OF OUR OWN

POCKETS, WE'RE GOING TO BE

RESPONSIBLE FOR $5,000

WORTH OF HEALTH CARE

COSTS.

AND THAT'S JUST OUR OWN

RESPONSIBILITY THAT WE'LL

TAKE CHARGE OF.

Caitlin: IF MEDICAL

NEEDS EXCEED THAT AMOUNT

IN A GIVEN YEAR, THEY

NOTIFY THEIR HEALTH CARE

AND RECEIVE A CHECK TO PAY

THEIR HEALTH CARE

PROVIDERS.

I'M RESPONSIBLE FOR IT,

BUT MY FELLOW MEMBERS ARE

MAKING A COMMITMENT THAT

THEY'RE GOING TO HELP ME

MEET THOSE

RESPONSIBILITIES THAT

EXCEED $5,000.

Reporter: THE FAMILY

FEELS THAT BEING PART OF A

CHRISTIAN HEALTH SHARE

ALLOWS THEM TO TAKE SOME

OF THE TEACHINGS THEY'VE

HEARD ABOUT IN CHURCH AND

READ ABOUT IN THE BIBLE

AND LIVE THEM OUT.

WE CAN SEE A PICTURE OF

THE CHURCH IN ACTS 2 WHERE

THE CHURCH SHARES

EVERYTHING IN COMMON.

AND THE BELIEVERS SHARE

THEIR POSSESSIONS AND MAKE

SURE THAT EVERYBODY IS

TAKEN CARE OF, AND THAT

WHEN THERE IS A NEED, YOU

MEET IT.

AND WE'RE ALSO TOLD TO BE

RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR

HOUSEHOLDS.

AND SO WHAT I SEE IS

CHRISTIAN HEALTH SHARE

HELPS YOU DO BOTH OF THOSE

THINGS.

Caitlin: THE FAMILY

SAYS TWO THINGS STAND OUT

TO THEM ABOUT BEING A PART

OF THIS MINISTRY: FIRST,

THEY RECEIVED PRAYER WHEN

THEY CALLED TO ASK A

QUESTION OR GET MORE

INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR

COVERAGE.

IT WAS REALLY UPLIFTING

AND ENCOURAGING AND NOT A

MOMENT THAT YOU WOULD EVER

ASSOCIATE WITH HEALTH CARE

OR INSURANCE -- OR AT

LEAST I WOULDN'T HAVE.

Caitlin: AND, SECOND,

EACH MONTH THEY RECEIVE AN

E-MAIL ABOUT FAMILIES

BEING HELPED BY THEIR

SHARE, ENCOURAGING A NOTE

OR PRAYER ON THE FAMILY'S

BEHALF.

EVERY TIME I DO THAT,

IT HELPS ME HAVE THE

CONFIDENCE AND

UNDERSTANDING THAT IN MY

HOUR OF NEED, WHEN OUR

FAMILY MAY NEED IT, THERE

ARE GOING TO BE OTHER

PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT WANT

TO DO THE SAME THING.

Caitlin: SINCE THESE

ARE CHRISTIAN HEALTH SHARE

MINISTRIES, THERE ARE

LIMITATIONS.

MEMBERS AGREE TO ABIDE BY

A CHRISTIAN LIFESTYLE.

FAILURE TO DO SO COULD

LEAD TO UNCOVERED MEDICAL

COSTS.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU WERE

INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT

AFTER DRINKING, YOU WOULD

BE REQUIRED TO PAY YOUR

OWN HEALTH BILLS.

AND BECOMING PREGNANT OUT

OF WEDLOCK, YOU WOULD ALSO

NOT BE COVERED.

I FEEL THAT THERE IS A

WAY THAT I'M CONTRIBUTING

TO THE FAMILY OF CHRIST,

THAT I'M DOING NOW, THAT I

CAN'T DO THROUGH

TRADITIONAL INSURANCE.

SO I DON'T WANT TO GO BACK

INTO A METHOD THAT IGNORES

THE NEEDS OF MY BROTHERS

AND SISTERS.

Caitlin: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS,

WAYNESBORO, VIRGINIA.

Mark: AN INTERESTING

CONCEPT TO HELP THOSE WHO

DON'T HAVE HEALTH

INSURANCE.

> STAY WITH US; WE'LL BE

RIGHT BACK WITH MORE OF

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

DON'T GO AWAY.

Mark: HARDENED

CRIMINALS ARE RECEIVING

GOD'S REDEEMING GRACE.

PASTOR EDUARDO IS IN EL

SALVADOR WHO BECAME A

CHRISTIAN AFTER WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

NOW HE IS PAYING IT

FORWARD BY MINISTERING TO

PRISONERS IN DESPERATE

NEED OF HEARING GOD'S

WORD.

CBN PROVIDED A TARP TO

PASTOR HIS MINISTRY, TO

HELP WITH LARGE-SCALE

EVENTS WHERE MORE THAN

1,000 PROPOSITION NERS

ATTENDED.

BY THE END OF THE YEAR,

100 PRISONERS HAD GIVEN

THEIR LIFE TO CHRIST.

THAT'S AWESOME.

THAT'S IT FOR NOW ON

CBN "NEWSWATCH."
