MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE HAS

HIT NEPAL, NEAR KATHMANDU.

ONE UNIT HAS BECOME

LEGENDARY, THE ISRAELI

MEDICAL UNIT.

45 DOCTORS, AND 29

NURSES, ALL OF THEM

VOLUNTEERS.

WHEN PEOPLE NEED US, WE

HAVE THIS THING WHERE WE

VOLUNTEER AND WE COME AND

HELP.

PLUS...LEARN HOW YOU

CAN PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

Andrew: HI, AND

WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

WITH MANY YEARS OF

EXPERIENCE DEALING WITH

WAR AND TERRORISM,

ISRAELIS ARE UNIQUELY

QUALIFIED TO RESPOND WHEN

DISASTER STRIKES.

Terry: IN 2015, A

MAGNITUDE 7.8 EARTHQUAKE

DEVASTATED NEPAL.

IT IS THE WORST QUAKE TO

HIT THAT AREA AND MORE

THAN 80 YEARS, AND ISRAELI

DOCTORS AND RESCUE TEAMS

WERE AMONG THE FIRST ON

THE SCENE.

Reporter: A POWERFUL

7.8 MAGNITUDE EARTH HAS

HIT NEPAL NEAR THE CITY OF

KATHMANDU.

A MAGNITUDE 6.7.

Reporter: NEPAL'S

DESPERATION IS TURNING TO

DISPAIR AS VIOLENT

AFTERSHOCKS RATTLE THAT

REGION.

IN THE MIDDAY OF

SATURDAY, LITERALLY WE

FELT THE EARTH SHAKING.

AND I CAN'T IMAGINE NOW

BAD IT WAS HERE IN

KATHMANDU.

Reporter: THE MASSIVE

EARTHQUAKE KILLED NEARLY

9,000 PEOPLE AND INJURED

22,000 MORE.

IN JUST A FEW MOMENTS,

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE HAD BECOME

HOMELESS.

THE WORLD MOBILIZED TO

HELP.

AND AMONG THE FIRST TO

ARRIVE IN NEPAL WERE

DOCTORS FROM THE ISRAEL

DEFENSE FORCES, OR I.D.F.

I GOT A PHONE CALL IN

THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

YOU'RE GOING.

WE'RE NOW IN GANGABU

DISTRICT, INSIDE THE CITY

OF KATHMANDU, WHICH IS ONE

OF THE WORST AREAS HIT BY

THE EARTHQUAKE ON LAST

SATURDAY.

AS YOU CAN SEE, THE

DEVASTATION IS JUST

ENORMOUS.

AND THE RECOVERY PROCESS

WILL TAKE A LONG TIME.

> WITHIN 96 HOURS AFTER

THE EARTHQUAKE, WE ALREADY

HAVE A FIELD HOSPITAL

HERE, FULLY OPERATIONAL.

Reporter: THE

DEVASTATION IN NEPAL WAS

EXTREME, BUT FOR THE

ISRAELI DOCTORS IT WAS

NOTHING NEW.

A DISASTER MAY BE

UNFOLDING RIGHT NOW IN

HAITI, HIT TODAY BY A

POWERFUL EARTHQUAKE.

IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE A

COUNTRY LESS ABLE TO COPE

WITH A DEVASTATING

EARTHQUAKE.

IT IS SOME OF THE WORST

CALAMITIES EVER TO AFFLICT

THE EARTH.

Reporter: WHEN A

CATASTROPHIC EARTHQUAKE

DEVASTATED HAITI IN 2010,

MORE THAN 200 I.D.F.

VOLUNTEERS ARRIVED IN

PORT-AU-PRINCE TO HELP.

IN LESS THAN 12 HOURS,

THEY BUILT A HOSPITAL ON

THIS SOCCER FIELD.

AND OVER THE NEXT TWO

WEEKS, THEY TREATED MORE

THAN A THOUSAND PATIENTS.

THE DEDICATION AND

EFFICIENCY OF THE ISRAELI

ARMY DOCTORS CAUGHT THE

ATTENTION OF THE WORLDWIDE

MEDIA.

ONE UNIT HAS BECOME

LEGENDARY, THE ISRAELI

MEDICAL UNIT.

AS YOU WALK THROUGH

THIS CAMPUS, IT HAS

MILITARY PRECISION.

YOU SEE A PEDIATRIC WARD.

YOU SEE A MATERNITY WARD,

A NEWBORN UNIT.

I'VE BEEN HERE SINCE

THURSDAY, AND NO ONE

EXCEPT THE ISRAELI

HOSPITAL HAS TAKEN ANY OF

OUR PATIENTS.

I'M JUST AMAZED WHAT IS

HERE.

THIS IS LIKE ANOTHER WORLD

COMPARED TO THE OTHER

HOSPITAL.

MY GOSH, THEY HAVE

MACHINES HERE.

THEY HAVE ACTUAL OPERATING

ROOMS.

IT IS JUST AMAZING.

Reporter: THREE YEARS

LATER, THE I.D.F. REPEATED

THAT SUCCESS HALF WAY

AROUND THE WORLD WHEN THE

MOST POWERFUL TYPHOON IN

MODERN HISTORY SLAMMED

INTO THE PHILIPPINES.

AFTER THE STORM, AN I.D.F.

TEAM BUILT A FIELD

HOSPITAL ON THE ISLAND OF

SABU, WHERE THEY TREATED

NEARLY 3,000 PATIENTS,

PERFORMED 60 SURGERIES,

AND DELIVERED 36 BABIES.

THE VERY FIRST ONE WAS

BORN PREMATURELY AND

WEIGHED JUST UNDER FIVE

POUNDS.

HIS PARENTS NAMED HIM

ISRAEL.

THIS IS NOT THE FIRST

TIME.

WE ARE ALSO VERY

EXPERIENCED, AND WER WE'RE

INTERESTED IN DOING IT

BECAUSE THIS IS OUR NATURE

AS A COUNTRY.

THIS IS A TRADITION IN

ISRAEL.

ANY TIME ANYWHERE IN THE

WORLD SOMETHING LIKE THIS

HAPPENS, EARTHQUAKES OR

TYPHOONS OR TSUNAMIS, AND

PEOPLE NEED US, WE HAVE

THIS THING WHERE WE

VOLUNTEER AND WE COME AND

HELP.

Reporter: TWO YEARS

LATER IN NEPAL, THE I.D.F.

ONCE AGAIN LED THE WORLD'S

FIRST RESPONDERS.

WITHIN FOUR DAYS OF THE

EARTHQUAKE, THEY WERE

RUNNING THIS HOSPITAL IN A

FIELD OUTSIDE KATHMANDU.

WHAT YOU SEE IS

ACTUALLY A FULL-FLEDGE

FIELD HOSPITAL, BUT ONE

THAT IS CAPABLE OF GIVING

OPERATIONS IN EVERY SHAPE

AND SIZE, AND WE WILL BE

TREATING THOSE WHO ARE

WOUNDED FOR HOW FAR LONG HOWEVER LONG

IT TAKES.

WE BROUGHT THE BEST

PEOPLE THAT WE CAN AND THE

BEST EQUIPMENT THAT WE

HAVE TO HELP.

IMAGING, THE

LABORATORIES, TAKING CARE

OF KIDS, TAKING CARE OF

NEW BABIES AND THE

NEWBORN, OF COURSE

OPERATIONS -- EVERYTHING

THAT YOU SEE IN A

HOSPITAL, WE HAVE OVER

HERE.

Reporter: THE

I.D.F.'s MEDICAL TEAM

INCLUDED 45 DOCTORS AND 29

NURSES, ALL OF THEM

VOLUNTEERS.

RIGHT AFTER THE

EARTHQUAKE, WE IMMEDIATELY

CALLED AND SAID, WE WANT

TO GO, EVEN BEFORE THE

GOVERNMENT DECIDES THAT

THEY WOULD SEND US.

ALL OF THE VOLUNTEERS ARE

JUMPING.

I HAVE SMALL CHILDREN.

MY KIDS ARE NINE, SEVEN,

AND THREE YEARS OLD.

AND, OF COURSE, THE LITTLE

ONE, SHE DOESN'T

UNDERSTAND WHERE I AM.

I MISS THEM A LOT.

I HAVE A GOOD HUSBAND, AND

HE HELPS ME A LOT.

PEOPLE DECIDE TO COME

HERE BECAUSE IT BRINGS OUT

THE BEST IN HUMAN BEINGS.

AND EVERYONE HERE ARE

SHOWING THEIR BEST SIDE OF

THEIR PERSONALITIES.

SO IT IS A PLEASURE TO BE

WITH SUCH GOOD PEOPLE.

Reporter: AMONG THOSE

GOOD PEOPLE WERE THESE

FORMER SOLDIERS, WHO WERE

ON VACATION IN NEPAL WHEN

THE EARTHQUAKE STRUCK.

THE DAY AFTER THE

EARTHQUAKE, WE HEARD THERE

WAS A BASE HERE.

AND WE WANTED TO HELP, OF

COURSE, SO WE CAME BY

OURSELVES.

AND WE CAME HERE TO HELP.

WE WERE HELPING THE

PHARMACY HERE WITH ALL OF

THE MEDICAL STUFF, AND

MOVING STUFF.

BASICALLY I HELPED TAKING

SOME INJURED PEOPLE, WITH

BEDS, TO SURGERY.

ANYTHING WE NEED -- THIS

IS LIKE THE EDUCATION OF

THE ISRAELI PEOPLE.

FROM THE EDUCATIONAL, FRO ARMY AND FROM TH
E

FAMILIES, THIS IS HOW WE

WORK.

Reporter: THE I.D.F.

WASN'T THE ONLY ISRAELI

GROUP ON THE GROUND IN

NEPAL.

SINCE 2001, THE N.G.O.,

ISRA-AID, HAS BEEN ON THE

FRONT LINES OF DISASTERS

AROUND THE WORLD.

WE WORK TOGETHER WITH

THE LOCAL COMMUNITY, WITH

THE PE NEPALI ARMY, AND TEAMS

FROM NORWAY, FRANCE, AND

THE U.S.

WE'RE TRYING TO LOOK FOR

SURVIVORS, TO RESCUE

WHOEVER WE CAN, WHETHER IT

IS PEOPLE DEAD OR ANY

LIVE.

OUR TEAM JUST LANDED ON

TUESDAY MORNING.

WE TOOK THEM STRAIGHT FROM

THE AIRPORT HERE, TO THIS

BUILDING, AND THEY STARTED

TO WORK WITHOUT SLEEPING,

WITHOUT RESTING, WITHOUT

DRINKING, WITHOUT EATING.

BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT EVERY

MINUTE IS CRITICAL IF WE

WANT TO FIND SURVIVORS.

SPEAKING TRULY, THAT NO

ONE WAS EXACTLY HELPING

US, AND THEN THE ISRAELI

TEAM CAME, AND THEY FIRST

STARTED.

AND THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY

TOOLS OR EQUIPMENT, BUT

WITH THEIR HANDS THEY

STARTED DIGGING, AND THEY

COME AND HELP US.

THAT WAS REALLY

INCREDIBLE.

UNDER THIS BUILDING

THAT YOU SEE HERE, THEY

ESTIMATED THERE ARE ABOUT

20 TO 24 PEOPLE STILL

TRAPPED.

WE ALREADY PULLED OUT FOUR

BODIES, AND WE'RE NOW

TRYING TO LOOK FOR MORE.

Reporter: THE TEAM

USED A MACHINE CALLED A

LIFE SCANNER, THAT CAN

IDENTIFY SIGNS OF LIFE.

[YELLING]

SHE ALIVE!

SHE WAS THE CLEANING

LADY OF THIS HOUSE.

SHE WAS IN THE STAIRWAY

SOMEWHERE, AND SHE IS

ALIVE.

Reporter: AFTER 10

HOURS, THEY PULLED

24-YEAR-OLD KRISHNA

KUMARI, WHO HAD BEEN

TRAPPED FOR 128 HOURS,

NEXT TO THREE DEAD BODIES.

WE CAME STRAIGHT FROM

THE AIRPORT, AND STARTED

DIGGING.

AND ONE THING THEY HAD AND

OTHERS DIDN'T HAVE WAS

FAITH AND HOPE.

THEY FOUND KRISHNA

KUMARI.

Reporter: FOR

ISRA-AID, THE DRAMATIC

RESCUE WAS JUST THE

BEGINNING OF AN ONGOING

MISSION IN NEPAL.

HERE YOU SEE THE RESCUE

EXPERTISE, BUT WE ALSO

BRING IN MEDICAL TEAMS,

AND WE'RE STARTING A THIRD

TRAUMA CARE PROGRAM.

BRINGING ISRAEL THE

EXPERTISE TO HELP THE

SURVIVORS, TO PEOPLE, TO

HELP THEM COPE WITH THIS

TRAUMA.

IN SOUTH AMERICA AND

EAST EUROPE, YOU SEE

ORGANIZATIONS THAT HELP

THE LOCAL POPULATIONS AND

WORK WITH THEM CLOSELY, TO

HELP THEM ENSURE THAT THEY

HAVE ADEQUATE WATER

SUPPLIES, CLEAN WATER.

THESE ARE PROBLEMS ISRAEL

HAS BEEN FACING FOR OVER

60 SOMETHING YEARS, AND

EVEN BEFORE.

AND WE WANT TO SHARE THAT

EXPERIENCE.

WE KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IT

IS, AND WE HAVE THE

EXPERIENCE, SO THERE IS NO

REASON IN THE WORLD THAT

WE WILL ONLY KEEP THAT

EXPERIENCE TO OURSELVES.

I'M HERE NOT JUST AS

GURA OR DR. GURA, BUT I

STAND HERE AS A JEW WHO

BELIEVES IN GOD.

AND I BELIEVE THAT GOD

WANTS ME HERE BECAUSE HE

WANTS ME TO HELP THESE

PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY NEED

HELP.

I THINK THAT IS NOT ONLY

OUR PRIVILEGE, BUT OUR

DUTY.

Andrew: WOW, TERRY,

WHEN YOU CONSIDER SOMEONE

TRAPPED IN RUBBLE FOR

DAYS.

THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT WHAT

FAITH TRADITION THE

RESCUERS ARE OR

POLITICALLY WHAT IS GOING

ON.

THEY DESPERATELY NEED

HELP.

AND THESE ISRAELI

ORGANIZATIONS ARE LEADING

THE WAY.

THEY'RE SAYING, LET'S DO

WHAT WE CAN TO HELP

PEOPLE.

IT IS INSPIRING.

Terry: I DON'T THINK

I'VE SEEN IN RECENT YEARS,

A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO SO

IDENTIFY THEMSELVES AS

THIS IS US.

THIS IS OUR D.N.A.

THIS IS WHAT WE DO.

THIS IS WHO WE ARE AS A

PEOPLE.

AND IT'S SO IMPRESSIVE.

IT'S SO IMPRESSIVE.

WOW, WHAT A DIFFERENCE

THEY'RE MAKING.

> WELL, CBN HAS RELEASED

Reporter: THANK YOU,

TERRY.

> COMING UP, PUERTO RICO

WAS DEVASTATED BY TWIN

HURRICANES LAST IAC YEAR, AND

SEE WHY SOME ARE NOW

CALLING THE STORMS

BLESSINGS IN DISGUISE.

I THINK PUERTO RICO

WILL BE THE MAIN FOCUS

POINT IN THE CARIBBEAN TO

KEEP SHARING THE GOSPEL

EVEN MORE.

Terry: PLUS, THE

Facebook DATA LEAK HAS

EVERYONE TALKING ABOUT

ONLINE PRIVACY AND

SECURITY.

WE'LL SHARE HOW YOU CAN

PROTECT YOUR FAMILY.

THAT'S ALL NEXT.

WE'LL BE BACK IN A MOMENT.

Terry: HURRICANE

MARIA DEVASTATED MUCH OF

PUERTO RICO LAST

SEPTEMBER, BUT THE STORM

ALSO PAVED THE WAY

FORTUNATE A SPIRIT OF

REVIVAL.

TAKE LOOK AT THIS.

Reporter: PUERTO RICO

HAS BEEN STRIPPED OF SO

MUCH IN THE WAKE OF

HURRICANE MARIA, BUT WHAT

IS FLOURISHING HERE IS THE

CHURCH.

THE STORY OF THE ISOLATED

MOUNTAIN VILLAGE OF COMO

RIO TELLS IT ALL.

GEORGE SANTIAGO GREW UP

HERE BUT LEFT FOR MORE

OPPORTUNITY IN THE STATES.

LAST SUMMER, HOWEVER, GOD

CALLED HIM BACK TO START A

CHURCH IN HIS HOME TOWN.

AT FIRST NOTHING SEEMED TO

BE HAPPENING.

WHEN WE CAME HERE IN

JULY 2017, WE DIDN'T HAVE

A CHANCE TO OPEN THE BIBLE

AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO

THE PEOPLE.

Heather: BUT JUST TWO

MONTHS LATER, HURRICANE

MARIA TURNED THIS PRETTY

MOUNTAIN STREAM INTO A

RAGING RIVER, AND THE

PEOPLE OF COMA RIO WERE

PARALYZED, THEIR TOWN IN

SHAMBLES AND THEIR ACCESS

TO FOOD AND WATER, GONE.

THERE WAS DESTRUCTION

EVERYWHERE.

Heather: SANTIAGO

QUICKLY SPRANG INTO

ACTION, USING HIS SOUTHERN

BAPTIST DENOMINATION TO

FIND RESOURCES LIKE FOOD,

WATER, AND EVEN WASHING

MACHINES, SO PEOPLE COULD

WASH THEIR CLOTHES.

THESE ACTS OF SERVICE, HE

SAYS, BECAME HIS WAY BACK

INTO THE COMMUNITY.

AND HIS PATH TO SHARING

THE GOSPEL.

PEOPLE WERE JUST BLOWN

AWAY, AND WERE ASKING ALL

OF THE TIME, WHY ARE YOU

GUYS DOING THIS?

Heather: SINCE THE

STORM, AT LEAST 50 PEOPLE

HAVE COME TO CHRIST HERE,

AND SANTIAGO HAS STARTED

WHAT HE CALLS A BABY

CHURCH FOR THE NEW

BELIEVERS.

HE PLACED US IN PUERTO

RICO AT THE RIGHT

NOMINATE, THE PERFECT

NOMINATE, FOR ONE CHURCH

TO GIVE BIRTH.

Heather: AND SANTIAGO

IS NOT ALONE.

CARLOS RODRIGUEZ SAYS

MARIA HAS PAVED THE WAY

FOR ENORMOUS SPIRITUAL

GROWTH.

IF YOU ASK ANY PASTOR

ACROSS PUERTO RICO, ACROSS

DENOMINATIONS, NO ONE

WOULD SAY THAT HURRICANE

MARIA WAS A BAD THING IN A

WAY -- IN THE HUMAN

PERSPECTIVE, OF COURSE.

WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE

WITHOUT POWER.

BUT FROM THE SPIRITUAL

PERSPECTIVE, EVERYONE

SAID, NO, IT WAS A

BLESSING.

Heather: SOUTHERN

BAPTISTS SEE A UNIQUE

OPPORTUNITY RIGHT NOW.

THEY'RE PLANTING THREE NEW

CHURCHES THIS YEAR, AHEAD

OF SCHEDULE, AND THEY'RE

POURING HUNDREDS OF

VOLUNTEERS AND RESOURCES

INTO THE TERRITORY IN

HOPES OF WINNING MORE FOR

CHRIST.

PASTOR FARLON REYNOSA IS

WORKING WITH MISSION TEAMS

FROM THE STATES, AND

WATCHING PEOPLE COME TO

THE LORD.

THIS IS ACTUALLY

BRINGING A REVIVAL THROUGH

THE ISLAND, JUST BY

HELPING PEOPLE PUT A TENT

UP, BY JUST CUTTING THE

TREES -- JUST STUFF THAT

IS SIMPLE, PROBABLY, FOR

MANY OF US, BUT FOR THEM

IT MEANS A LOT.

Heather: IN SAN JUAN,

MARIA DAMAGED PASTOR

GABRIEL'S CHURCH, BUT IT

DIDN'T STOPPER RIS STOP PARISHNERS

FROM DISTRIBUTING FOOD AND

WATER AFTER THE STORM.

WE MADE SURE IT WENT

OUT AS QUICKLY AS

POSSIBLE.

Heather: EVEN SIX

MONTHS LATER, HE SEES

MARIA AS A HUGE

OPPORTUNITY FOR THE

CHURCH, BUT HE IS ALSO UP

AGAINST SOME TOUGH

REALITIES, AS ARE OTHER

CHURCHES.

MORE THAN 100,000 PEOPLE

HAVE LEFT PUERTO RICO

SINCE THE HURRICANE.

BUT RODRIGUEZ SAYS

BELIEVES MUST SEE EVEN THE

MIGRATION AS AN

OPPORTUNITY FOR THE

GOSPEL.

HE IS TELLING CHURCHES

WITH MEMBERS THAT LEAVE

FOR THE STATES, SEND THEM

AS MISSIONARIES.

DON'T THINK THAT IS A

LOSS.

NO, IT IS A GAIN, ALWAYS.

TEACH THOSE PEOPLE THAT

THE LORD IS MOVING YOU TO

THE U.S., TO THE MAINLAND,

ANY STATE, AND YOU HAVE TO

BE CONNECTED WITH THE

CHURCH.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE A

MISSIONARY THERE.

Heather: CHURCHES ARE

ALSO ACUTELY AWARE OF

SEVERE MENTAL HEALTH NEEDS

RIGHT NOW.

SURVIVING THE STORM AND

ITS AFTERMATH HAS LED TO

WIDESPREAD DEPRESSION FOR

MANY AND A SPIKE IN

SUICIDE ATTEMPTS.

BUT IN THE MIDST OF SUCH

SUFFERING, BELIEVERS ARE

SEEING A HUNGER FOR THE

GOSPEL, AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

THAT BUSINESS AS USUAL

JUST WON'T WORK.

I THINK IT IS GOING TO

BE AN EXPEDENTIAL

EXPLOSION OF MANY NEW

CHURCHES, AND MANY PEOPLE

FOLLOWING GOD'S CALLING TO

PASTOR CHURCHES, TO BE

THAT EVANGELIST THAT GOD

WANTS YOU TO BE.

I THINK PUERTO RICO IS

GOING TO BE A MAIN FOCUS

POINT IN THE CARIBBEAN TO

KEEP SHARING THE GOSPEL

EVEN MORE.

Heather: LAST MONTH

PASTOR GEORGE BAPTIZED 10

NEW BELIEVERS, AND HE

KEEPS THIS DISPLAY OF

LOCKS, WITH THE KEYS

THROWN AWAY, AS A REMINDER

OF NEW SOULS THAT CANNOT

BE SEPARATED FROM THE LOVE

OF CHRIST.

WE ARE EXPERIENCING A

REVIVAL, LITERALLY A

REVIVAL.

WE SEE PEOPLE HUNGRY WITH

HOPE.

Heather: FROM THAT

PERSPECTIVE, IT IS A

MOMENT OF HOPE IN PUERTO

RICO RIGHT NOW BECAUSE AS

THE ISLAND IS REBUILDING

PHYSICALLY, IT IS ALSO

REBUILDING SPIRITUALLY.

> REPORTING IN PUERTO

RICO, HEATHER SELLS, CBN

NEWS.

Andrew: AS IF CHURCH

PLANNING ISN'T HARD

ENOUGH, YOU HAVE PASTOR

SANTIAGO GOING THERE, IN

THAT DEVASTATION, BUT HE

IS POSITIONED TO BE THE

HANDS AND FEET OF CHRIST

IN SHOWING WHAT THE CHURCH

IS TO BE ABOUT.

Terry: WHEN

EVERYTHING IS GOING

SMOOTHLY, GOD DOESN'T HAVE

OUR ATTENTION.

AND THEN SOMETHING LIKE

THIS HAPPENS, AND WE SEE

OUR NEED FOR HIM AND SEE

HIS ABILITY TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE MIDST OF

CHAOS.

QUITE AN AMAZING THING.

PEOPLE STILL OUT OF POWER

NOW.

Andrew: WELL, STILL

TO COME, WITH ALL OF THE

RECENT DATA LEAKS, WE'LL

LOOK AT WAYS TO KEEP YOUR

PRIVACY SAFE FOR YOU AND

YOUR FAMILY.

THAT'S NEXT.

STAY WITH US.

Andrew: WELL,

Facebook'S C.E.O. MARK

ZUCKERBERG TESTIFIED IN

FRONT OF CONGRESS RECENTLY

BECAUSE OF A MASSIVE DATA

LEAK.

WITH THAT IN MIND, WE WANT

TODWEWANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU

SOME WAYS TO KEEP YOUR

DATA SAFE.

SO JOINING N ME NOW IS CALEB

KINCHLOW.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME.

Andrew: WHAT WOULD

YOU SAY IS A GOOD FIRST

STEP FOR FAMILIES TO STAY

SAFE ONLINE?

WE'VE GOT SO RELAXED

WITH OUR PRIVACY,

ESPECIALLY IN TERMS OF OUR

CHILDREN.

THE NUMBER ONE THING, I

SAY, IS TO MAKE SURE THAT

YOUR PROFILE IS SET TO

YOUR FRIENDS ONLY.

BECAUSE BY DEFAULT, IT

SAYS IT IS PUBLIC.

AND TO GO A STEP FURTHER

THAN THAT.

I RECOMMEND TAKING YOUR

FRIENDS' LIST AND DIVIDING

IT.

TO LI DELINIATE BETWEEN

PEOPLE, SO FOR PERSONAL

THINGS, YOU DON'T WANT THE

MASSES TO BE AWARE OF.

Andrew: DO YOU THINK

SOME PEOPLE ARE

INTIMIDATED TO GO THROUGH

THIS PROCESS, OR THEY JUST

DON'T KNOW IT EXISTS?

I THINK MOSTLY THEY

DON'T KNOW IT EXISTS.

JUST THE IDEA OF HAVING

ACCESS TO THINGS, AND NOT

BEING AWARE OF WHO IS

ACTUALLY LOOKING AT OUR

DATA, OUR INFORMATION,

ONLINE.

Andrew: WHAT ABOUT

COVER PHOTOS?

THAT'S SIGNIFICANT, ISN'T

IT?

IT IS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T

REALIZE THAT YOUR PROFILE

PICTURE AND YOUR COVER

PHOTO ARE ALWAYS PUBLIC TO

PEOPLE ON OR OFF

Facebook.

SO YOU DON'T WANT TO

SHOWCASE --

Andrew: AND YOU DON'T

HAVE A CHOICE IN THAT.

NO DEFAULT?

NO DEFAULT SETTINGS.

AND YOU DON'T WANT PEOPLE

TO KNOW YOU HAVE A BUNCH

OF KIDS, PERSONAL

INFORMATION THAT YOU

WOULDN'T WANT OTHER PEOPLE

TKNOW.

MAKE IT GENERIC, DON'T LET

THEM KNOW ABOUT YOUR KIDS.

Andrew: AND WHAT

ABOUT SETTINGS?

DO NOT PUT THE LOCATION

OF WHERE YOU ARE IN THE

PHOTO.

ANDREW, ONE OF THE GOTCHAS

THAT PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE

IS THAT THE LOCATION

FEATURE IS CHL ACTUALLY

CONNECTED TO THE CAMERA ON

YOUR SMART DEVICE.

SO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

BEYOND JUST BLOCKING IT ON

Facebook, GO TO YOUR

CAMERA SETTINGS, AND SAY,

TURN OFF LOCATION FEATURES

TO THE CAMERA.

BECAUSE THE CAMERA IS JUST

ANOTHER APP, LIKE, SAY,

YOUR CREDIT CARD OR A

TRAVEL APP, LIKE YELP OR

FOR, LIKE, GOOGLE MAPS.

Andrew: PEOPLE MAY

SAY, GOOD, I'VE PROTECTED

MYSELF ON Facebook, BUT

THERE IS A WHOLE OTHER

LEVEL TO THIS, AND THAT'S

YOUR PHONE.

RIGHT.

PEOPLE ARE MEDA TAGS

WITHIN EVEN PICTURE THAT

YOU POST.

SO SOMEONE COULD GO ON TO

YOUR PROFILE PICTURE, TAKE

THE PICTURE, AND THEY CAN

SEE WHERE YOU ACTUALLY

ARE --

Andrew: SO IF SOMEONE

IS NOT GETTING THIS, WHAT

IS THE DANGER IN THAT?

THE DANGER IS -- LET'S

SAY YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

CHILDREN, SO I CAN FIND

OUT WHERE YOUR CHILD'S

SCHOOL IS, I CAN FIND OUT

THE PATH THEY'RE TAKING TO

THE SCHOOL.

I CAN FIND OUT INFORMATION

ABOUT WHERE THEIR DAYCARE

MIGHT BE.

SO BASICALLY, IF SOMEONE

WANTED TO CAUSE HARM TO

YOUR CHILD, THEY HAVE A

WHOLE DOCUMENT OF

INFORMATION.

Andrew: DO YOU HAVE

ANY OTHER TIPS FOR

PARENTS?

THEIR KIDS ARE GETTING

INTO TECHNOLOGY.

SOME OF THE KIDS ARE

SEVEN, EIGHT YEARS OL OLD,

AND THEY KNOW A GREAT DEAL

ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA.

CAN YOU GIVE US SOME TIPS?

THE FIRST ONE IS TO BE

AWARE OF WHAT THE APPS AND

THE PHYSICAL DEVICES THEY

HAVE, WHAT THEY CAN DO.

IF YOU HAVE XBOX, D DOES IT

HAVE ACCESS TO THE

INTERNET?

AND THE SECOND THING A LOT

OF PARENTS DON'T REALIZE,

IT IS NOT JUST ONE

CONVERSATION.

WE AS PARENTS SHOULD HAVE

ONGOING CONVERSATIONS

THROUGHOUT THEIR LIVES, AS

THEY'RE LEARNING HOW TO

USE TECHNOLOGY, AND EVEN

GROWING INTO AN ADULT.

Andrew: WE'VE

SUMMARIZED THE TIPS HERE.

FIRST, CHANGE YOUR PRIVACY

SETTINGS FROM PUBLIC TO

FRIENDS ONLY.

DO NOT POST PICTURES OF

YOUR CHILDREN IN YOUR

PROFILE OR COVER PHOTO.

NUMBER THREE, TURN OFF THE

LOCATION FEATURE ON

Facebook AND IN YOUR

PHONE SETTINGS.

FOURTH, KNOW WHAT KIND OF

ACCESS EACH DEVICE OR APP APP

ALLOWS.

FIVE, KNOW YOUR KIDS'

PASSWORDS -- YOU'LL HAVE

TO ASK THEM FOR THAT.

AND NUMBER SIX, HAVE

ONGOING CONVERSATIONS AS A

FAMILY.

GREAT TIPS, CALEB.

WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

WE'LL BRING YOU BACK TO

TALK MORE ABOUT THIS.

THANK YOU, ANDREW.

Andrew: THANKS FOR

BEING WITH US.

> I WANT TO LEAVE YOU

WITH HEBREWS 13:16:"BUT DO

NOT FORGET TO DO GOOD AND

TO SHARE, FOR WITH SUCH

SACRIFICES, GOD IS

RELIEVED."

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, YOU

CAN GIVE US A CALL AT

1-800-700-7000.

WE WOULD LOVE TO CARRY

YOUR NEED BEFORE THE

THRONE OF GOD.

THANKS FOR JOINING US.

WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME ON
