Efrem: THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US. I'M

EFREM GRAHAM.

FIRED FBI DIRECTOR JAMES

COMEY SAYS

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS MORALLY

UNFIT TO BE

PRESIDENT. HE SAID THIS IN

HIS BOOK

AND THE FIRST NEWS SINCE HE

WAS FIRED

ABOUT ALMOST A YEAR AGO.

JAMES COMEY IS BREAKING

HIS

SILENCE.

THE PRESIDENT MUST MIND

HIS COUNTRY.

HE'S UNFIT TO DO THAT.

COMEY DETAILED WHAT HE

CONSIDERED

SOME OF THE MOST

CONTROVERSIAL MOMENTS

OF HIS CAREER. ONE OF THEM

OPENING THE

HILLARY CLINTON E-MAILS AFTER

THE

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. HE

SAID HE HAD

NO CHOICE BECAUSE THAT'S

WHERE THE

ELECTION LED HIM.

YOU CAN AVOID ANY ACTION

TO THE

ELECTION BUT I SEE A LABEL

WITH NO

ACTION HERE.

HE SAYS THAT COULD HAVE

INFLUENCED

THE ELECTION THE TRUMP WON

WHICH

STUMPED WASHINGTON.

A LOT OF ME IS THINKING,

OH, MY

GOD! DO WE HAVE SOME ROLE IN

THIS.

HE SAYS IF HE HAD A CHANCE

THE DO

IT OVER, HE WOULD BECAUSE HE

WOULDN'T

WANT TO BE INFLUENCED BY

POLITICS.

IF I EVER WAS AFFECTED BY

THIS

DECISION WE WERE DONE.

COMEY COMPARED PRESIDENT

TRUMP TO A

MOB BOSS.

NOT THAT HE'S BREAKING

LEGS, BUT

INSTEAD I'M TALKING ABOUT

THAT

LEADERSHIP CULTURE.

AHEAD OF THAT INTERVIEW

SUNDAY

NIGHT, PRESIDENT TRUMP LASHED

OUT ON

TWITTER CALLING COMEY THE

WORSE FBI

DIRECTOR IN HISTORY.

COMEY SAYS WE NEED TO VOTE

HIM OUT OF

OFFICE RATHER THAN BY

IMPEACHMENT.

TENSIONS CONTINUE ON THE

STRIKE ON

SYRIA. THEY ARE GETTING TO

WORK AND

MEANWHILE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

CONSIDERING ANOTHER ROUND OF

SANCTIONS

ON RUSSIA.

WE HAVE THIS STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

THE RUIN OF CHEMICAL

WEAPONS.

A SIGN OF DAMASCUS WITH

TESTING

CHEMICAL WEAPONS AND

DESTROYED.

IT WAS MORE THAN A HUNDRED

MISSILES IN

1 SHOT, MORE THAN THE LAST

SHOTS.

THE TARGETED BUILDINGS WIPED

AWAY.

BURN MARKS ARE STILL VISIBLE.

WE ARE CONFIDENT THAT WE

HAVE

DISINTEGRATED HIS ABILITY.

NIKKI HAD A HARD MESSAGE

FOR HIM.

IF THE SYRIAN REGIME USES

THIS

AGAIN, THE UNITED STATES IS

LOCKED AND

LOADED.

LATER TODAY, THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS READY TO

SEND A NEW

ROUND PUNISHING THE PRESIDENT

FOR

USING CHEMICAL WEAPONS.

THEY ARE DEALING WITH ANY

COMPANIES

DEALING WITH CHEMICAL

WEAPONS.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYING

THAT FURTHER

CHEMICAL ATTACKS ON SYRIA

WILL BE

FOLLOWED BY THIS.

FURTHER AHEAD, MORE BAD

WEATHER AND

MORE THAN 230 FLIGHTS HAVE

BEEN

CANCELED IN MINNEAPOLIS AND

EVEN

TORNADOS.

BARBARA BUSH AND FAMILY

HAVE

DECIDED NOT TO SEEK

ADDITIONAL HELP.

SHE WILL FOCUS ON COMFORT

CARE.

THEY WOULD NOT ELABORATE ON

HER

CONDITION.

SHE HAS BEEN TREATED FOR A

THYROID

CONDITION FOR DECADES.

THE CEO IS APOLOGIZING

AFTER TWO

AFRICAN AMERICAN MEN WERE

ARRESTED IN

A COFFEE SHOP. CALLING THE

ARREST A

REPREHENSIBLE OUTCOME CALLING

THIS AN

OUTRAGE.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

THESE

STORIES AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PASTOR WAS LEAVING THE

HOSPITAL

AND HIS STAY STARTED WITH

SURGERY TO

RECOVER FROM A HERNIA AND

THEN HE HAD

ABDOMINAL SURGERY.

HIS WIFE SAID, WE HAVE FELT

YOUR LOVE.

YOUR PRAYERS ARE SO IMPORTANT

AND THEY

MATTER.

HER HUSBAND STILL HAS A LONG

ROAD OF

RECOVERY.

COMING NOW, ISRAEL AND THE

BOOK OF

PROVERBS.

THE TRIAL OF A NORTH

THE TRIAL OF A NORTH

CAROLINA

PASTOR IN PRISONED IN TURKEY

BEGINS.

HE LIVED WITH HIS FAMILY FOR

20 YEARS.

HE WAS DETAINED 18 MONTHS AGO

FOR

VIOLATIONS AND INSTEAD

CHARGED WITH

SECRETS.

THOUSANDS OF OTHERS WERE

ARRESTED

AROUND THE TIME AFTER THE

TURKEY

PRESIDENT CRACKED DOWN ON

THOSE TRYING

TO OVERTHROW HIS GOVERNMENT.

HIS ATTORNEY SAYS TURKISH

COURTS OFTEN

CONVICT PEOPLE WITHOUT

SUFFICIENT

EVIDENCE.

ISRAEL CELEBRATES IT'S

75TH

ANNIVERSARY. A LOOK AT WHERE

THEN

INFANT STATE IS NOW.

IN THE SPRING OF 1948,

ISRAEL TOOK

ITS PLACE AMONG THE NATIONS

WHEN DAVID

ANNOUNCED THE ESTABLISHMENT

OF THE

JEWISH STATE.

WHAT WAS THE SITUATION IN

MAY 1948

WHEN WE WERE 600,000 PEOPLE.

A HALF

SIZE OF A MID-SIZED AMERICAN

CITY WITH

HAND GUNS THAT CAME 25 MILES

OF TEL

AVIV.

A POPULATION THAT WAS STILL

LANGUISHING. THINK ABOUT THAT.

70 YEARS LATER, ISRAEL NOT

ONLY

SURVIVED BUT THRIVED.

OUR ECONOMY HAS ONE OF THE

HIGHEST

GROWTH RATES IN THE WORLD, WE

HAVE ONE

OF THE MOST POWERFUL ARMIES

AND ISRAEL

IS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL

COUNTRIES

IN THE WORLD. IN A HISTORICAL

PERSPECTIVE, I THINK ISRAEL

IS NOTHING

SHORT OF MIRACULOUS.

NOT ONLY HAS IT THRIVED

BUT HELPING

NATIONS THAT ARE IN NEED.

WE ARE HELPING A LOT OF

NATIONS.

IT'S WHAT IT WAS DOING

VISITING PLACES

LIKE HAITI AND MEXICO.

HELPING MEXICO, MEXICANS

APPLAUDED

THEM ON THE STREETS.

WHAT IS IT YOU DO OR GET

OUT OF IT?

WE ARE NOT GETTING ANYTHING

OUT OF

IT, WE ARE FULFILLING OUR

DEEPEST

VALUES. ISRAEL IS ALIVE TO

THE NATIONS.

ISRAEL NOT ONLY GOING TO

THE

NATIONS.

THE NATIONS ARE COMING TO

ISRAEL.

PEOPLE ARE COMING FROM

AROUND THE

WORLD TO JERUSALEM FOR

INNOVATION AND

INVESTMENT.

ISRAEL IS THE SECOND MOST

IMPORTANT

IN INNOVATION. WE HAVE BEEN

DREAMERS

HERE IN ISRAEL WHETHER IT'S

BACK IN

TIME ABRAHAM, THE PROPHET.

TODAY'S GOOD NEWS IS ABOUT

INNOVATION

AND TECHNOLOGY.

NOW ISRAEL IS PROTECTING

THE GOOD

NEWS AND EVEN MORE.

WE BELIEVE VERY MUCH THE

PLACE OF

JESUS.

HE SAYS ISRAEL SINCE IT'S

FOUNDING

IS PRESERVING THE HISTORICAL

AND

BIBLICAL SITES AND OPENED ITS

DOORS TO

PEOPLE OF ALL FAITHS.

IT'S MUCH MORE THAN MAKING

MONEY.

TOURISM IS MAKING YOUR

PARTNERSHIP

AROUND THE WORLD A LOT SAFER.

IT'S

STRONGER WITH EVERY TOURIST.

GOING AND TALKING ABOUT

ISRAEL

WHENEVER YOU LEAVE.

THAT IT SHOULD BE A

PERSONAL

MISSION.

BEFORE COMING, YOU READ

THE BIBLE

AND ONCE YOU GET TO ISRAEL,

EVERY

CHAPTER, EVERY STORY, EVERY

STORY

ABOUT JESUS IS A MESSAGE.

EVERYTHING COMES IN FULL

COLOR.

SOMETHING HAPPENS IN YOUR

SOUL AND YOU

SAY YOU WILL NEVER BE THE

SAME GAME.

THIS IS MY MESSAGE TO MY

BROTHERS AND

SISTERS.

VISITING ISRAEL IS YOUR

HERITAGE, NOT

MINE.

IF YOU WANT TO UNDERSTAND THE

BIBLE

BETTER AND THE NEXT TIME YOU

GO TO

CHURCH, YOU NEED TO BE HERE.

IT'S A

MISSION FOR LIFE.

WE ARE HELPING THE WORLD

THROUGH

HUMANITARIAN UP BRING, THIS

IS A

FULFILLMENT OF ISRAEL'S

MISSION TO THE

WORLD.

THIS IS A REPAIR OF THE WORLD

AS

ISAIAH WROTE NEARLY 2700

YEARS AGO.

STILL AHEAD, THEY ARE

OPENING THE

DOORS TO PEOPLE WHO OFTEN ARE

FORGOTTEN BY THE CHURCH. WE

ARE GOING

TO SHOW YOU HOW CONGREGATIONS

ARE

WELCOMING THOSE WITH

DISABILITIES.

ONE IN FIVE AMERICANS ARE

LIVING

WITH SOME FORM OF THE

DISABILITY.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN WHEN IT

COMES TO

THEM ATTENDING CHURCH. HERE

IS A WOMAN

WHO IS CHANGING HOW WE

INCLUDE PEOPLE

WITH SPECIAL NEEDS AND SHE'S

INSPIRED

BY HER DAUGHTER.

17-YEAR-OLD STAYS IN HER

LIVING

ROOM MAKING SOUNDS SHE ONLY

UNDERSTAND. SAMANTHA HAS

AUTISM.

A DISORDER THAT MANIFEST IN

MANY WAYS

INCLUDING HOW SHE DEVELOPS

LANGUAGE.

SHE BECOMES VERY

FRUSTRATED. YOU

CAN IMAGINE IT WAS WORSE WHEN

SHE WAS

YOUNGER.

HAVE YOU HAD ANY NEGATIVE

EXPERIENCES WITH HER IN

PUBLIC.

KAREN MAY LAUGH NOW, BUT

DEALING

WITH THIS BEHAVIOR IS NO JOKE.

SEVEN-YEAR-OLD JESSUP ALSO

HAS AUTISM.

HIS PARENTS SHARE THEIR

EXPERIENCES ON

A VIDEO BLOG LIKE THIS. WHEN

TY HAD A

MELTDOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF AN

IKEA

STORE.

OH MY GOSH.

THAT IS THE WORSE.

IT'S THE WORST EXPERIENCE FOR

MY KIDS.

I KNOW THAT --

NOW, IMAGINE A MELTDOWN

LIKE THAT

HAPPENING AT CHURCH.

FOR THE JACKSON FAMILY, IT

BECAME A

REALITY WHEN FOUR-YEAR-OLD

SAMANTHA

BECAME EXTREMELY DISRUPTIVE

DURING A

QUIET SERVICE.

SHE BEGAN TO SCREAM AS I

DRAGGED

HER OUT.

MY HUSBAND AND I TOOK TURNS

GOING TO

MASS.

KAREN BELIEVES SAMANTHA

BELONGS IN

CHURCH.

I THINK SHE'S A PERSON OF

IMMENSE

FAITH. SHE DOESN'T SHOW IT

THE WAY YOU

AND I WOULD SHOW IT, BUT SHE

SHOWS IT

WITH HER ACTIONS VERY

CLEARLY.

WHEN KAREN CAUGHT A

GLIMPSE OF THIS

WAS WHEN SAMANTHA WAS 6 YEARS

OLD WHEN

SHE ENCOUNTERED A HOMELESS

MAN.

SAMANTHA STOPPED IN FRONT

OF HIM

AND LOOKED AT HIM AND REACHED

OUT TO

HIM. I WAS SO MOVED BY THAT

BECAUSE

HERE I WAS TRYING TO SHUFFLE

HERE BY

NOT ACKNOWLEDGING HIM AND SHE

WAS

ACKNOWLEDGING HIM IN A

BEAUTIFUL WAY.

THAT'S WHERE FOR ME I STARTED

TO THINK

ABOUT HER IMPACTING OTHER

PEOPLE IN

HER SPIRITUAL LIFE.

WHAT IS IT LIKE FOR YOU TO

ACCOMPANYING PEOPLE WITH

SPECIAL NEEDS.

HE WASN'T PREPARED FOR

PEOPLE LIKE

SAMANTHA.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO EVEN

SAY THE

WORD.

SHE SAID, HOW ABOUT IF SHE

SPEAKS TO

THOSE IN THE MASSES.

THERE WAS NO WAY I WAS GOING

TO STOP

THAT.

SHE NOW STARTS TEACHING

PEOPLE

ABOUT DISABILITIES.

LESS THAN HALF ARE

INVOLVED IN

CHURCH AND ONE OUT OF THREE

FAMILIES

HAVE LEFT THEIR CONGREGATION

BECAUSE

THEY HAVEN'T BEEN WELCOMED OR

INCLUDED.

I THOUGHT, WHAT MORE CAN I

DO? IT

WAS A PRETTY DANGEROUS PRAYER.

AND SO BASICALLY DEVELOPED

OUT OF THAT.

IN 2008, KAREN STARTED

THIS FAITH

INCLUDED NETWORK TO BE MORE

INCLUSIVE.

IT'S A FORM OF THE

BROKENNESS THAT

IS COMMON TO THE HUMAN

EXPERIENCE.

KAREN IS ALSO BRANCHING

OUT TO

LEADERS IN THE FAITH

COMMUNITY TO

NETWORK AND INSPIRE.

FOR CHRIST JESUS TO DO

THIS WORK.

THERE IS A VERSE THAT TAKES

YOU TO THE

PAGE THAT TALKS ABOUT

DISABILITIES.

HE LOOKS TO DO THIS WORK.

SHE BEGAN

THIS MINISTRY TO HELP THOSE

WITH

DISABILITIES WORSHIP TOGETHER.

THEY HAVE THE PURE OF

GOD'S LOVE, I

THINK, THAT WITH NO

INHIBITIONS AT ALL.

YOU COME HERE AND YOU JUST

FEEL

TOTALLY LOVED.

EVERYBODY WILL TELL US

WHAT A GREAT

JOB WE ARE DOING, AND WE

ACTUALLY GET

MUCH MORE OUT OF THE WORK

THAT WE DO

THAN WHAT WE PUT INTO IT.

SAMANTHA JACKSON SPENDS

LESS TIME

ALONE NOW. HERE, SHE IS FULLY

TO BE

HERSELF AND DANCE.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS,

VIRGINIA

BEACH.

THAT WOMAN PRAYED A PRAYER.

I HOPE YOU WILL PRAY AS WELL.

FATHER,

LET ME BE THE ANSWER TO

SOMEONE ELSE'S

PRAYER. STAY WITH US. WE'LL

BE RIGHT

BACK.

IT'S TIME NOW FOR YOUR

MONDAY

MOTIVATION AND I PRAY THIS

MESSAGE

WILL INSPIRE YOU AND HELP TO

YOU JUMP

START YOUR WEEK. CONSIDER

THIS,

WORSHIP IS LOVE EXPRESSED.

YOUR ALMIGHTY FATHER LOVES

YOU MORE

THAN ANYONE.

MARVELOUS MONDAY.
