THIS WEEK ON "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS," AMERICA PAYS

HOMAGE TO THE REVEREND

BILLY GRAHAM.

HONORED BY THE NATIONS'

LEADERS IN OUR CAPITAL,

AND NOW LAID TO REST

BESIDE HIS BE BELOVED WIFE,

RUTH.

> AND ARE AMERICA'S BEST

DAYS BEHIND US?

ONE SPIRITUAL LEADER SAYS

NO WAY, AND PREDICTS A

TRANSFORMATION IS ABOUT TO

SWEEP THE NATION.

> PLUS...USING THE SIGNS

TO TELL THE WONDERS OF

GOD'S WORDS.

THE BIBLE TRANSLATION THAT

IS GIVING DEAF PEOPLE A

NEW WAY TO LEARN THE

SCRIPTURES.

> AND WELCOME, EVERYONE,

TO THIS EDITION OF

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS."

I'M WENDY GRIFFITH.

THE WORLD SAYS GOOD-BYE TO

EVANGELIST BILLY GRAHAM

THIS WEEK.

PRESIDENT TRUMP AND

RELIGIOUS LEADERS FROM

ACROSS THE NATION CAME TO

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA,

TO JOIN GRAHAM'S FAMILY

AND FRIENDS FOR THE

FUNERAL.

HERE IS A LOOK AT THE

CELEBRATION.

* AND BECAUSE HE LIVES

ALL OF US CHILDREN CAME

TO SEE THE WORLD'S AND OUR

FATHER IN HEAVEN THROUGH

MY FATHER'S EYES.

I MARRIED THE MAN, THIS

MAN, ON NEW YEAR'S EVE.

IT WAS WITHIN 24 HOURS I

MADE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE.

WHAT I WAS I GOING TO SAY

TO DADDY?

WHAT WAS I GOING TO SAY TO

MOMMY?

AS I GOT OUT OF THE CAR,

HE WRAPPED HIS ARMS AROUND

ME AND SAID, WELCOME HOME.

> AND I BELIEVE THIS IS

A SHOT ACROSS THE BOW FROM

HEAVEN.

I BELIEVE GOD IS SAYING,

WAKE UP CHURCH, WAKE UP

WORLD, WAKE UP ANNE, JESUS

IS COMING.

AND I PLEDGE TO YOU,

DADDY, IN VIEW OF HIS

APPEARING, AND IN FRONT OF

ALL OF THESE WITNESSES, I

WILL PREACH THE WORLD.

MILLIONS TODAY ARE

SEARCHING FOR THE WAY.

WHERE DO I GO?

WHAT DO I DO.

JESUS SAID, FOLLOW ME.

HE SAID, I'M THE WAY.

JUST A FEW DAYS AGO, MY

FATHER FOLLOWED JESUS ALL

THE WAY TO HEAVEN.

DADDY, I WON'T SEE YOU ON

THIS EARTH AGAIN, BUT I

WILL SEE YOU AGAIN.

I'LL SEE YOU MAYBE SOON,

BUT NOT YET.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY.

* HE LIVES

Wendy: EARLIER THIS

WEEK, THOUSANDS TRAVELLED

TO CAPITOL HILL TO PAY

THEIR RESPECTS TO THE

REVEREND BILLY GRAHAM, AS

HIS BODY LAID IN HONOR IN

THE ROTUNDA.

ABABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US THAT STORY.

IT WAS AN HISTORIC

MOMENT ON CAPITOL HILL

WHEN LAWMAKERS PUT

POLITICS ASIDE FOR A DAY

TO HONOR AMERICA'S PASTOR,

REVEREND BILLY GRAHAM.

President Trump:

EVERYWHERE HE WENT,

REVEREND 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 BY THE WAY, HE

SAID, C'MON 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.

THOSE BEFORE HIM INCLUDE

TWO CAPITAL POLICE

OFFICERS KILLED IN THE

LINE OF DUTY AND CIVIL

RIGHTS ICON ROSA PARKS.

THE IDEA FIRST CAME FROM

GRAHAM'S NORTH CAROLINA

CONGRESSMAN, PATRICK

McHENRY, WHO SUGGESTED

IT TO HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL

RYAN.

I THOUGHT IT WAS ONLY

SITTING AND RIGHT WE PAY

THAT LAST HONOR.

Reporter: RYAN TOLD

CBN NEWS IT WAS AN EASY

DECISION TO MAKE.

WE GOT TOGETHER AND

DECIDED THIS IS SOMETHING

WE SHOULD DO.

Reporter: REVEREND

GRAHAM'S FAMILY JOINED THE

LAWMAKERS AFTER THE CASKET

ARRIVED IN WASHINGTON.

SPEAKER RYAN SAID, IF

THERE IS EVER AN AMERICAN

WORTHY OF THIS HONOR, IT

IS REVEREND GRAHAM.

WHEN OUR 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.

HE NEVER WANTED

ATTENTION FOR HIMSELF.

HE ALWAYS POINTED THE

ATTENTION TOWARDS THE

LORD.

Reporter: REPORTING

FROM CAPITOL HILL, ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: WELL, SOME MAY

FEEL THE PASSING OF

EVANGELIST BILLY GRAHAM

SIGNALS A SHIFT IN

AMERICA'S SPIRITUAL LIFE

AND NOT NECESSARILY FOR

THE BETTER.

BUT DOUG SHEETS BELIEVES A

TURNAROUND IS COMING, AND

IT WILL LEAD TO A

WORLDWIDE HARVEST OF

BILLIONS OF SOULS.

SHEETS TOLD PAUL STRAND

ALL ABOUT IT.

Reporter: CONFERENCES

ARE ALL WELL AND GOOD, BUT

DUTCH SHEETS AND MORE THAN

A THOUSAND CHRISTIANS ARE

HERE FOR ONE AT THE TRUMP

INTERNATIONAL HOTEL THAT

IS MEANT TO TURN THE

NATION AROUND.

ONE OF DOUG SHEETS'

FRIENDS HAD A STARTLING

PROPHECY FOR THE U.S. BACK

IN APRIL.

10 MONTHS OF TURMOIL,

AND IT WOULD BE THREE

YEARS OF TURNAROUND FOR

AMERICA.

Reporter: AND THERE

HAVE BEEN POLITICAL

TURMOILS, FIRES, FLOODS

AND MORE.

BUT SHEETS SAYS NOW IS THE

TIME FOR GOD'S PEOPLE TO

PUSH FOR THE PROMISED

TURNAROUND.

THERE IS ANOTHER LEVEL

OF INTERCESSION, PR PROPHETIC

DECLARATIONS, THAT IS

GOING TO LAUNCH US INTO

WHAT WE'VE BEEN ASKING FOR

FOR 25, 30 YEARS, ANOTHER

GREAT AWAKENING AROUND THE

WORLD.

I BELIEVE THE GREATEST

HARVEST IN HISTORY BEGINS

NOW.

Reporter: SHEETS SAYS

BELIEVERS NEED TO REIGNITE

THE APPEAL TO HEAVEN

MOVEMENT, A TIME WHEN THE

FOUNDING FATHERS

ACKNOWLEDGED THEY COULDN'T

BECOME A FREE NATION WOW

GOD'S AID.

SO THEY FLEW FLAGS SAYING

TO APPEAL TO HEAVEN.

OUR FOUNDERS KNEW THERE

WAS NO WAY THEY COULD

DEFEAT THE BRITISH UNLESS

GOD INTERVENED.

IF HE IS IN THIS, WE CAN

WIN.

IF HE IS NOT, THIS IS

LAUGHABLE.

SO THEY SAID, WE'RE GOING

TO APPEAL TO HEAVEN.

THEY LAID OUT THEIR CASE

AND SAID, SO WE APPEAL TO

THE SUPREME JUDGE OF THE

UNIVERSE.

Reporter: AND HE

BELIEVES GOD IS NOW SAYING

TO THE NATION...

I NEED TO USE WHAT I

USED TO REBIRTH YOU.

Reporter: CINDY

JACOBS SAYS IT SHOULD

START ON WASHINGTON'S

BIRTHDAY IN THE CITY NAMED

AFTER HIM.

RELAUNCHED ON 2/22 IN

WASHINGTON, D.C.

Reporter: MANY

BELIEVE AMERICA CERTAINLY

NEEDS IT.

THE TURNAROUND IS A

REVERSAL OF THE TUR TURNING

AWAY FROM GOD AND HIS

NATION.

WE ARE AN APOSTATE NATION.

WE HAVE REJECTED HIM.

SOMETHING THAS TO TO

HAPPEN IN THE HEARTS OF

PEOPLE TO WHERE THEY WILL

SAY, INTERNALLY AND

OUTWARDLY, WHAT DOES GOD

THINK ABOUT THIS

THIS?

IT IS A RETURN TO HIM, A

RETURN TO HIS WORD, A

RETURN TO HIS WAYS.

IF WE SOW SEEDS OF

RIGHTEOUSNESS, WE RECEIVE

THE BLESSING OF HEAVEN.

THAT MEANS PHYSICALLY,

SPIRITUALLY MARINES ARE MARRIAGES ARE

HEALED, LIVES ARE PUT BACK

TOGETHER, DRUG ADDICTION

GOES DOWN.

Reporter: AND HE

EXPECTS FROM A REBORN

AMERICA, GOD WILL CHANGE

THE WORLD.

I BELIEVE WE'LL SEE

MORE PEOPLE SAVED IN THE

NEXT 20 YEARS THAN WE HAVE

IN THE PREVIOUS 2,000.

I THINK IT WILL BE IN THE

BILLIONS, NOT.

"M," BUT THE "B," THE

BILLIONS.

I THINK ASIA IS ABOUT TO

GET HIT WITH A TIDALWAVE

OF REVIVAL, AND THINK IT

IS GOING INTO THE MIDDLE

EAST.

THE BEST DAYS OF THE

CHURCH ARE NOT BEHIND US.

THEY'RE AHEAD OF US.

Reporter: IF YOU CAN

PRAY, IF YOU CAN INTERCEDE

FOR YOUR NATION, YOU CAN

HAVE A PART IN THE

TURNAROUND.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM THE TRUMP

INTERNATIONAL HOTEL,

WASHINGTON.

Wendy: THANK YOU,

PAUL.

> COMING UP, THE

SHOCKING FALLOUT FOR A

GENERATION WHO HAS GROWN

UP UNDER ISLAMIC

TERRORISM.

MEET THE WOMAN ON A

MISSION TO SAVE CHILDREN

WHO HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED

BY ISIS.

Wendy: AT LEAST FIVE

PEOPLE WERE KILLED AND

FOUR WOUNDED BY A GUNMAN

AS THEY LEFT A RUSSIAN

ORTHODOX CHURCH LAST WEEK.

IT HAPPENED IN DAGESTAN.

THE ISLAMIC STATE CLAIMS

RESPONSIBILITY, BUT THE

POLICE HAVE NOT YET

RELEASED A MOTIVE IN THE

KILLINGS.

THE GUNMAN WAS A LOCAL

RESIDENT AND HIS WIFE HAS

BEEN DETAINED FOR

QUESTIONING.

> A GENERATION IN THE

MIDDLE EAST HAS GROWN UP

UNDER ISIS, AND THEY HAVE

ADOPTED ITS MANTRA OF

HATRED.

SO AND THERE IS A

CHRISTIAN WOMEN WHO WANTS

TO TEACH RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM.

Heather: EVEN AS

VICTORY IS DECLARED OVER

ISIS IN PLACES LIKE IRAQ

AND SYRIA, MILLIONS OF

CHILDREN REMAIN IN THOSE

REGIONS, HARBORING THE

RAGE.

THAT'S WHY TINA IS CALLING

FOR IMMEDIATE

INTERVENTION.

WHEN YOU'RE DEALING

WITH CHILDREN WHO ARE

UNDER 14 WHO HAVE BEEN

LIVING UNDER

INDOCTRINATION OF HATE,

VIOLENCE, AND HAVE

WITNESSED IT, HAVE

SOMETIMES BEEN FORCED TO

ENGAGE IN THAT VIOLENCE

THEMSELVES, THAT'S ALL

THEY'VE KNOWN.

FREEDOM FOR THEM IS A

FOREIGN CONCEPT.

> Reporter: IN SOME

CASES, ISIS LITERALLY

BRAINWASHED THE CHILDREN

IN JIHADIST TRAINING

CAMPS.

THOSE CHILDREN, WHEN

THEY TALK TO THEIR MOTHERS

NOW, SAY, MOM, I'M ISIS.

I DON'T WANT TO BE YAZIDI.

I'M ISIS.

Reporter: IN OTHER

CASES, ISIS PASSED ON ITS

CORE BELIEFS VIA THE

CLASSROOM.

IN MOSUL, YOU HAVE

600,000 CHILDREN THAT

LIVED UNDER ISIS FOR THE

PAST THREE YEARS.

600,000 THAT WERE TAUGHT

EVERY DAY IN THE SCHOOLS,

ADDING UP BOMBS IN ORDER

TO LEARN MATH.

AND LEARNING TO HATE AND

KILL YAZIDIS, CHRISTIANS,

AND EVEN OTHER MUSLIMS

THAT DIDN'T BELIEVE LIKE

THEM.

Reporter: MANY OF THE

CHILDREN WHO SURVIVED THIS

LIFE OF BRUTALITY NOW

MAINTAIN LIKE-MINDED

ATTITUDES.

MANY SEE ISIS AS THE SUPER

HERO OF THEIR WORLD.

THOSE WHO TRY TO HELP THEM

SAY IT IS HORRIBLY

APPARENT EVEN ON THE

PLAYGROUND.

A GROUP OF TEACHERS WE

WORK WITH CAME ACROSS A

GROUP OF STUDENTS PLAYING

A GAME.

IT WAS A GAME WHERE THEY

LOOKED AND THEY WERE

SHOCKED.

THEY TOLD US WHAT

HAPPENED.

THEY SAID WHEN THEY

REALIZED THERE WAS A GROUP

OF STUDENTS BEHEADING

ANOTHER STUDENT, THAT THEY

WERE SO TERRIFIED THEY

DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO

DO.

AND WE'VE HEARD THE SAME

STORIES IN LEBANON.

WE'VE HEARD SIMILAR

STORIES IN MOR ROC CO.

MOROCCO.

Reporter: FOR THE

LAST THREE YEARS, RAMIREZ

HAS TRAINED TEACHERS TO

TEACH RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

ERIC PATTERSON SERVES ON

HER BOARD AND SAYS LEADERS

IN PLACES LIKE IRAQ

REALIZE THEY NEED HELP

BEFORE ANOTHER HATE-FILLED

GENERATION TAKES THE PLACE

OF ISIS.

THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE,

INCLUDING PEOPLE OF

CONSERVATIVE MUSLIM FAITH,

WHO FEEL THAT WE'VE BEEN

KILLING EACH OTHER OVER

THESE THINGS FOR SO LONG,

MAYBE WE NEED TO HAVE A

DIFFERENT APPROACH.

Reporter: AND THAT

MEANS MAKING SCHOOLS THE

FRONT LINES FOR CHILDREN.

TRAINING TEACHERS TO HELP

STUDENTS LEARN NOT JUST TO

TOLERATE EACH OTHER'S

BELIEFS, BUT TO DEFEND

THEM.

AFTER JUST A FEW

LESSONS OF LEARNING ABOUT

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM THROUGH

SIMULATIONS AND

ACTIVITIES -- SO IN A VERY

INDIRECT WAY THAT FORCES

THEM TO INTERNALIZE IT AND

TO WORK THROUGH SOME OF

THE QUESTIONS THEY HAVE

ABOUT THIS FREEDOM, AT THE

END THEIR ATTITUDES HAVE

SHIFTED IN JUST THE MATTER

OF A FEW LESSONS.

EVERY HUMAN IS HARD

WIRED FOR FREEDOM.

AND WE BELIEVE AS

CHRISTIANS, THAT'S A PART

OF THE WAY GOD MADE US IN

THE IMAGE OF GOD, WITH THE

ABILITY TO MAKE CHOICES

AND THINGS.

AND SO THAT IDEA IS REALLY

AT THE HEART OF IT.

Reporter: ONE CORE

LESSON "THE PEACEFUL

GARDEN" WALKS CHILDREN

THROUGH THE PROCESS OF

PLANTING FLOWERS, WITH

DIFFERENT COLORS

REPRESENTING DIFFERENT

BELIEFS.

STUDENTS COMPARE AND

CONTRAST GARDENS WITH JUST

ONE COLOR OR MANY.

FROM THERE THEY TALK ABOUT

THE STRENGTH OF A SOCIETY

THAT TREATS ALL RELIGIONS

WITH DIGNITY AND RESPECT.

IT MAY LOOK LIKE JUST FUN

AND GAMES, BUT IT IS

DEADLY SERIOUS.

UNTIL WE HAVE A SOCIETY

THAT EMBRACES RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM FOR EVERYBODY, WE

WILL ONLY SEE RECURRENT

CYCLES OF RELIGION-RELATED

CONFLICT ACROSS THE MIDDLE

EAST AND AROUND THE WORLD.

Reporter: TEACHING

KIDS NOW TO RESPECT AND

DEFEND RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

CAN ULTIMATELY HELP TO

SHUT DOWN EXTREMISM AND

HELP TO STABILIZE

SOCIETIES THAT DESPERATELY

NEED PEACE.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

STILL AHEAD, THERE ARE

70 MILLION DEAF PEOPLE

WORLDWIDE, AND LESS THAN

2% OF THEM HAVE A BIBLE

THEY WERE UNDERSTAND.

SEE HOW THEY'RE REACHING

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD

WITH THE WORD OF GOD.

IMAGINE NOT HAVING A

BIBLE IN YOUR OWN

LANGUAGE.

THAT'S A REALITY FOR

AROUND 2,000 LANGUAGES

ACROSS THE GLOBE.

NOW I IN ITS 75th YEAR,

THE WITCLIFF BIBLE

TRANSLATORS ARE REDUCING

THAT NUMBER.

ONE OF ITS NEWEST MISSIONS

ARE REACHING THE DEAF.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: FOR 75

YEARS, WITCLIFF BIBLE

TRANSLATORS HAVE PUT GOD'S

WORD INTO VARIOUS

LANGUAGES AROUND THE WORD.

WORLD.

THE SCRIPTURES STATE

THAT THE WORD WILL GO

FORTH TO ALL NATIONS

AROUND THE WORLD, AND THEN

CHRIST WILL RETURN.

AND GOD HAS IT ALL PLANNED

OUT.

AND THE FACT THAT HE

CHOOSES TO USE AN

ORGANIZATION LIKE WITCLIFF

TO HELP CARRY OUT HIS PLAN

IS ENCOURAGING TO ME.

Reporter: THE

ORGANIZATION SAYS UP TO

160 MILLION PEOPLE NEED

THE BIBLE TRANSLATED IN

THEIR LANGUAGES.

BUT WHEN GOD'S WORD

BECOMES ALIVE IN THE

LANGUAGE THAT YOU USE AT

HOME WITH YOUR FAMILY, AND

THEN YOU SEE THAT GOD

SPEAKS YOUR LANGUAGE, YOU

REALIZE THIS IS NOT

SOMEONE ELSE'S MESSAGE;

THIS IS A MESSAGE THAT IS

MEANT FOR ME.

Reporter: ONE NEW

FRONTIER IS THE DEAF

COMMUNITY.

AND THEY'RE WORKING WITH

DEAF BIBLE SOCIETY TO

REACH THIS OFTEN

OVERLOOKED GROUP.

WE BELIEVE THEY ARE A

PART OF THE GREAT

COMMISSION'S COMMAND.

AND THEY TOO, DO HAVE THE

RIGHT TO KNOW GOD'S TRUTH.

Reporter: THE SOCIETY

ESTIMATES THERE ARE

70 MILLION DEAF PEOPLE

WORLDWIDE, AND LESS THAN

2% HAVE INTERACTED WITH

THE BIBLE IN A LANGUAGE

THAT THEY CAN UNDERSTAND.

AND OF THE MORE THAN 350

SIGN LANGUAGES, MEGAN

TELLS CBN NEWS NOT ONE HAS

A COMPLETE BIBLE

TRANSLATION.

EVEN AMERICAN SIGN

LANGUAGE, OR A.S.L.

SOME MAY WONDER, WHY

DOESN'T THE DEAF COMMUNITY

JUST READ A PRINTED BIBLE?

MANY PEOPLE DON'T

REALIZE AS HEARING

INDIVIDUALS, WE GROW AND

ARE RAISED IN THE

ENVIRONMENT AND CONTEXT OF

THE NOISY WORLD.

WE HAVE SOUND ALL AROUND

US.

THAT FOR US IS THE

DEVELOPING LANGUAGE,

DEVELOPING WHAT WE USE TO

LEARN TO READ AND TO WRITE

LATER IN LIFE.

FOR A DEAF PERSON, THEY

DON'T HAVE THAT

EXPERIENCE.

Reporter: MEGAN CALLS

SIGN LANGUAGE THE HEART

LANGUAGE OF THE DEAF.

IT IS HOW THEY

COMMUNICATE BEST, HOW THEY

UNDERSTAND BEST.

I THINK THE LORD WANTS TO

COMMUNICATE WITH US BEST.

THEY WANT US TO UNDERSTAND

HIM, AND HE WANTS THAT FOR

THE DEAF COMMUNITY AS

WELL.

WHY NOT GIVE THEM

SCRIPTURE IN THEIR HEART

LANGUAGE.

WHY NOT TRANSLATE THE

SCRIPTURES IN A FORMAT

THEY WERE UNDERSTAND, AND

OFFER VIDEO CON CONTENT THEY

CAN HAVE ON TECHNOLOGICAL

DEVICES.

Reporter: ADEN BURKE

TALKS TO US ABOUT THE

IMPORTANCE OF THIS

TRANSLATION EFFORT THROUGH

INTERPRETER MISTY FUR R &

R.

>FURR.

I WOULD SEE PEOPLE

SIGNING DIRECTLY FROM THE

BIBLE, AND ALSO THERE ARE

MISCONCEPTS AS TO WHAT THE

ACTUAL MEANING IS.

Reporter: BURKE IS

ENCOURAGED BY RECENT

PROGRESS SPECIFICALLY BY

A.S.L.

THEY FOCUS ON KNOWING

ON HOW TO USE THAT

TRANSLATION.

HOW DO WE APPLY IT.

HOW DO WE TEACH IT TO THE

COMMUNITY?

THERE COULD BE DIFFERENT

WAYS OF APPLYING WHAT THEY

HAVE.

IT COULD BE ON AN APP ON

THEIR PHONE.

Reporter: WE CAUGHT

UP WITH BRANDON, WHO

DEMONSTRATED THE DEAF

BIBLE APP.

THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT

SACSSECTIONS HERE, AND ONE IS

CALLED A.S.L. V., AND

THAT'S THROUGH THE BIBLE,

AND OTHER ONE IS OF BIBLE

STORIES IN A STORY FORMAT

FOR DEAF PEOPLE TO WATCH.

Reporter: COMMUTER

TECHNOLOGY IS ESSENTIAL

FOR THE PROCESS.

SHAWN STYLES OVERSEES THE

SOFTWARE.

WE'RE TRACKING THE

SIGNER AND PUTTING IT INTO

A 3D ENVIRONMENT.

THIS ALLOWS US TO CHANGE

THE AVATAR TO LOOK LIKE A

LOCAL NATIONAL OR A

BIBLICAL CHARACTER.

IN A VISUAL LANGUAGE, LIKE

SIGN LANGUAGE, THIS

CREATES A LOT OF CONTEXT.

Reporter: ALL OF THIS

HELPS WITCLIFF REACH DEAF

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.

I'M SO EXCITED.

HE TOLD ME HE COULDN'T BE

IN CONTACT BECAUSE THEY

WERE HAVING INTERNET

ISSUES, AND WE WOULD HAVE

TO WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR.

BUT NOW HERE WE ARE.

THE HOLY SPIRIT ORDERED

THAT, THAT RIGHT AS WE

WERE WALKING BY, THAT THAT

CONNECTION HAPPENED.

YES.

THAT'S AWESOME.

Reporter: DEAF BIBLE

SOCIETY SAYS SO FAR 30

SIGN LANGUAGES HAVE

PORTIONS OF THE BIBLE

TRANSLATED.

THEY HOPE IN THE NEXT

THREE YEARS THAT 100 MORE

WILL BE ADDED TO THAT

LIST.

STEWART TISEN SAYS DEAF

PEOPLE ARE USUALLY THE

LAST PEOPLE TO LEARN WHAT

IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD.

EVEN WITH THE BIBLE,

WE'RE STILL THE LAST

PEOPLE TO KNOW.

I'M VERY EXCITED THAT WE

HAVE THE ABILITY FOR DEAF

PEOPLE TO GET THE SUPPORT

THEY NEED, NOW THAT WE'RE

MAKING ALL OF THESE

TRANSLATIONS HAPPENING.

Reporter: TAKING

GOD'S WORD TO PEOPLE FROM

ALL WALKS OF LIFE, AND

HELPING TO USHER IN THE

RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

YOU CAN SEE MORE

STORIES ON THEIR WORK ON

OUR WEBSITE,

CBNNEWS.COM.

STAY WITH US; WE'LL BE

RIGHT BACK.

AND

THE MAYOR OF JERUSALEM

HAS SUSPENDED A PLAN TO

COLLECT TAXES FROM

CHURCHES.

THAT PLAN HAD PROMPTED

RELIGIOUS LEADERS TO CLOSE

THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY

SEPULCHRE IN JERUSALEM

INDEFINITELY.

THE MEASURE WOULD HAVE

TAXED LOCAL PROPERTIES

OWNED BY THE CHURCH.

MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE THE

CHURCH IS WHERE JESUS WAS

BURIED AND ROSE FROM THE

DEAD.

> WELL, AN HISTORIC MOVE

TOWARDS UNITY, CHRISTIANS

JOINED ISRAELI JEWS IN THE

KNESSET TO STUDY THE WORD

OF GOD.

CHRIS MITCHELL TALKED TO

THOSE INVOLVED IN THE

STUDY ABOUT ITS IMPORTANCE

AND SIGNIFICANT.

*

Reporter: THIS RABBI

HOSTED THE FIRST-TIME

BIBLE STUDY.

IT IS EXCITING TO SEE

HOW THE WORDS OF THE

PROPHETS ARE REALLY COMING

ABOUT.

WE HAVE PEOPLE FROM ALL

OVER THE WORLD WHO WANT TO

COME AND STUDY THE BIBLE

FROM JERUSALEM.

EXACTLY AS I SAID, THE

WORD OF GOD FROM

JERUSALEM.

SOME 200 JEWS AND

CHRISTIANS ATTENDED THE

EVENT.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME

JEWS AND NON-JEWS CAME

TOGETHER AT THE KNESSET TO

STUDY THE BIBLE TOGETHER.

AMAZING.

THE BIBLE THAT HAS BEEN A

SOURCE OF DIVISION BETWEEN

JEWS AND CHRISTIANS

THROUGHOUT OUR LONG

HISTORY IS NOW THE SOURCE

OF UNITY BETWEEN OUR

PEOPLE.

FOR YEARS, GLICK HAS

CAMPAIGNED FOR WIDER

ACCESS TO THE TEMPLE

MOUNT, WHERE ONLY MUSLIMS

WERE ALLOWED TO PRAY.

THAT PUBLIC STANCE LEDING LED TO

A SHOOTING THAT SEVERELY

INJURED HIM.

ZIONISM IS THE NAME OF

THE TEMPLE NOW.

DEEMED BY INTERNATIONAL

DIRECTOR

NOW

WE'RE LIVING IN AN

AMAZING HOUR, IT IS

HUMBLING, AND I PRAY THE

LORD WILL GRANT MANY MORE

CHRISTIANS TO HAVE THIS

EXPERIENCE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN

NEWS, JERUSALEM.

IT IS VERY EXCITING TO

SEE JEWS AND GENTILES

COMING TOGETHER FOR SUCH A

TIME AS THIS.

THANKS, CHRIS.
