MARK THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M MARK MARTIN.

PRESIDENTS, FIRST LADIES,

AND MANY OTHERS WHO KNEW

BARBARA BUSH ARE

REMEMBERING HER TODAY.

SHE DIED ON TUESDAY AT THE

AGE OF 92.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID AMONG

HER GREATEST ACHIEVEMENTS

IS THE, QUOTE,

"RECOGNIZING LITERACY AS A

FUNDAMENTAL VALUE THAT

PROVIDES NURTURING."

BARBARA BUSH, AMERICA'S

GRANDMOTHER, THE MATRIARCH

OF THE BUSH POLITICAL

DYNASTY, AND THE SECOND

LADY IN HISTORY TO BE BOTH

WIFE AND MOTHER TO U.S.

PRESIDENTS.

A NO-NONSENSE WOMAN KNOWN

FOR HER PEARL NECKLACES

AND QUIT WIT, HER

HUSBAND'S ROCK.

IN THIS 1992 INTERVIEW WE

TERRY MEEUWSEN, BUSH

EXPLAINED WHAT WAS SPECIAL

ABOUT HER FAMILY GROWING

UP.

WE SAT AS A FAMILY,

AROUND THE TABLE, THREE

TIMES A DAY.

Reporter: BORN

BARBARA PIERCE ON JUNE 8,

1925, SHE GREW UP IN A

SUBURB OF NEW YORK CITY.

SHE WAS 16 WHEN SHE MET

HER FUTURE HUSBAND AT A

DANCE.

THE COUPLE HAD SIX

CHILDREN, AND TOGETHER

ENDURED THE DEATH OF THEIR

DAUGHTER ROBIN, WHO LOST

HER BATTLE WITH LEUKEMIA

WHEN SHE WAS JUST THREE

YEARS OLD.

I HAVE GREAT BELIEF IN

GOD, AND SO DOES GEORGE

BUSH, AND THAT HELPS A

LOT.

Reporter: BUSH SERVED

AS SECOND LADY AS THE

REAGANS OCCUPIED THE WHITE

HOUSE, BEFORE MOVING IN

HERSELF.

SHE FOCUSED ON IMPROVING

LITERACY BETWEEN PARENTS

AND CHILDREN, BELIEVING IT

CAN SOLVE MANY OF

SOCIETIES PROBLEMS.

BUSH WROTE, "I AM STILL

OLD AND STILL IN LOVE."

SHE WAS A POPULAR FIRST

LADY AND CELEBRATED BY

MANY AT THE END FOR

CHOOSING COMFORT CARE THAT

ALLOWED HER TO ENJOY HER

FINAL DAYS WITH HER

FAMILY.

IN HER "700 CLUB"

INTERVIEW, SHE ENCOURAGED

YOUNG COUPLES TO MAKE

FAMILY THEIR TOP PRIORITY.

I THINK IT IS NICE TO

PRAY TOGETHER.

I THINK IT IS NICE TO TELL

YOUR CHILDREN YOU LOVE

THEM.

AND I CONFESS I DID NOT

GROW UP WHERE WE SAID THAT

TO EACH OTHER.

WE WERE RATHER STUFFY, I

THINK, BUT NOW I HAVE NO

QUALMS ABOUT TELLING

PEOPLE I LOVE THEM.

Mark: SHE WILL BE

MISSED.

> HERE IS A LOOK AT SOME

OF THE OTHER BIG HEADLINES

WE'RE FOLLOWING IN THE CBN

NEWSROOM TODAY: A

SOUTHWEST AIRPLANE

CARRYING 149 PASSENGERS

EXPLODED IN MID-AIR ON

TUESDAY.

ONE PERSON WAS KILLED,

ANOTHER WAS NEARLY SUCKED

OUT OF A SHATTERED WINDOW.

THE PLANE WAS BOUND FROM

DALLAS TO NEW YORK, BUT

THEY MADE AN EMERGENCY

LANDING IN PHILADELPHIA.

> STARBUCKS WILL CLOSE

MORE THAN 8,000 STORES

NEXT MONTH TO CONDUCT

RACIAL BIAS TRAINING.

THE NEWS COMES AFTER TWO

BLACK MEN WERE ARRESTED IN

A PHILADELPHIA STORE LAST

WEEK.

THE STARBUCKS' C.E.O. SAYS

HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT

SITUATION DOES NOT HAPPEN

AGAIN.

NEARLY 175,000 EMPLOYEES

WILL TAKE PART IN THE

TRAINING.

> THE SUPREME COURT

STRUCK DOWN PART OF A

FEDERAL IMMIGRATION LAW

THAT MAKES IT EASIER TO

DEPORT IMMIGRANTS WHO HAVE

BEEN CONVICTED OF CRIMES.

IN A 5-4 VOTE, PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S NOMINEE, NEIL

GORSUCH, SIDED WITH

LIBERAL JUSTICES.

HE SAYS PART OF THE LAW

WAS TOO VAGUE.

TRUMP IS NOW CALLING ON

CONGRESS TO STEP IN AND

CLOSE IMMIGRATION

LOOPHOLES.

> BREAKING NEWS

INDICATES THAT CHANGE MAY

BE COMING SOON TO THE

KOREAN PENINSULA.

NEW REPORTS CONFIRM THAT

C.I.A. DIRECTOR MIKE

POMPEO RECENTLY MET WITH

KIM JONG-UN IN PREPARATION

FOR HIS SUMMIT WITH

PRESIDENT TRUMP.

ALSO, THE NORTH KOREAN

LEADER IS SET TO MEET WITH

SOUTH KOREA'S PRESIDENT IN

THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THAT

STORY.

Heather: AFTER YEARS

OF CONDUCTING NUCLEAR

TESTS THAT HAVE ESCALATED

TENSIONS WITH THE WORLD,

NORTH KOREA APPEARS TO BE

TRYING A DIFFERENT

APPROACH.

THE LATEST NEWS, C.I.A.

DIRECTOR MIKE POMPEO

TRAVELLED TO NORTH KOREA

TO MEET WITH KIM JONG-UN

OVER EASTER WEEKEND, JUST

AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP

NOMINATEDED HINOMINATED HIM TO BECOME

SECRETARY OF STATE.

THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN

MEETING WITH JAPAN'S PRIME

MINISTER AT HIS FLORIDA

ESTATE, WHERE HE

REFERENCED THE TRIP.

President Trump:

WE'VE HAD TALKS AT THE

HIGHEST LEVEL.

AND IT IS GOING VERY WELL,

BUT WE'LL SEE WHAT

HAPPENS.

Heather: PRESIDENT

TRUMP ALSO INDICATED THAT

AN UPCOMING MEETING

BETWEEN THE NORTH KOREAN

LEADER AND THE SOUTH

KOREAN PRESIDENT HAS HIS,

QUOTE, "BLESSING," WHILE

ADDING THAT THE COUNTRIES

BELIEVE HE DESERVES CREDIT

AS WELL.

President Trump:

THEY'VE BEEN VERY

GENEROUS, AND WITHOUT SUS,

AND WITHOUT ME IN

PARTICULARLY, YOU COULD

SAY, THEY WOULDN'T BE

DISCUSSING ANYTHING.

Heather: THE

PRESIDENT SAYS THEY ARE

UNIFIED ON THE SUBJECT OF

THE KOREAN WAR.

THE NUCLEAR WEAPONS HAS

THREATENED NOT ONLY ITS

NEIGHBORS, BUT THE U.S.

IN ADDITION TO ITS NUCLEAR

PROGRAM, NORTH KOREA'S

HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES ARE

ALSO AN INTERNATIONAL

CONCERN, AND THE GLOBAL

CHURCH HAS LONG BEEN AWARE

OF THE SUFFERING OF

BELIEVERS THERE.

NORTH KOREANS WHO FOLLOW

CHRIST OR WHO SPEAK OUT

AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT,

ARE ROUTINELY TORTURED,

KILLED, OR SENT TO HARSH

LABOR CAMPS.

THE NOTION THAT

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE CAN EXIST WITHOUT

ALMOST ANY RIGHTS IS

SIMPLY INTOLERABLE.

Heather: PRESIDENT

TRUMP SAYS HE'LL MEET WITH

KIM JONG-UN BY EARLY JUNE.

HE SAYS REGARDLESS OF

WHERE IT IS HELD, THE

STAKES, AS THE WORLD

WATCHES AND HOPES,

COULDN'T BE HIGHER.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Mark: CHINA'S THREAT

OF TARIFFS ON FARM

PRODUCTS IN RETALIATION TO

THE PRESIDENT'S TARIFFS ON

CHINESE STEEL AND ALUMINUM

HAS SOME FARMERS FEELING

UNEASY.

BUT SU SUNNY PERDUE SAYS HE

IS WORKING ON A PLAN TO

BAIL THEM OUT IF CHINA

FOLLOWS THROUGH.

Reporter: AFTER

COLLEGE, BRETT WHITEMAN

RETURNED TO HIS FAMILY

FARM IN VIRGINIA.

HE RAISES BEEF CATTLE,

CORN, AND SOYBEANS, AND

SAYS IT IS ALWAYS ALARMING

WHEN AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS

ARE MENTIONED IN TRADE

DISPUTES.

SOYBEANS ARE THE MOST

CONCERNING JUST BECAUSE OF

THE VOLUME OF CON SU CONSUMPTION

CHINA HAS.

Reporter: CHINA IS

THREATENING TARIFFS AS

HIGH AS 25% ON OVER 100

AMERICAN PRODUCTS.

THE THREAT OF TARIFFS AND

FEARS OF A TRADE WAR COME

AT A CRITICAL TIME FOR

FARMERS AS THEY PREPARE TO

PLANT THEIR CROPS, AND ADD

A LAYER OF UNCERTAINTY TO

AN INDUSTRY, LET'S FACE

IT, THAT COULD DO WITHOUT

IT.

NET FARM INCOMES HAVE

DROPPED BY 50%.

Reporter: IT ACCOUNTS TRADE

ACCOUNTS FOR 50% OF

AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS, AND

CHINA WAS AMERICA'S

BIGGEST BUYER.

AND CHINA'S TARIFF THREATS

ARE A BIG DEAL, BUT HE

SAYS FARMERS HE SPOKE TO

APPRECIATE THE PRESIDENT'S

WILLINGNESS TO STAND UP TO

THEM.

THEY UNDERSTAND THAT

CHINA HAD TO BE CALLED OUT

FOR CHEATING, AND BE

CALLED OUT.

AND THEY ALSO BELIEVE THE

PRESIDENT IS GOING TO TAKE

CARE OF THEM.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP HAS AUTHORIZED

PERDUE TO USE ALL OF THEIR

TOOLS AT DISPOSAL TO HELP

PROTECT THEIR BOTTOM

LINES.

WE'RE WORKING ON A

PACKAGE IN ORDER TO

UTILIZE PROGRAMS AND FUNDS

THAT WOULD SUPPORT FARMERS

IF THEY ARE HARMED AND

DAMAGED BY TRADE DISPUTES.

Reporter: BEIJING

ALREADY SIGNALLED IT IS

READY TO DEAL WHEN THEY

IMPROVED PROTECTIONS OF

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.

SECRETARY PERDUE IS HOPING

THEIR TRADE PACKAGE WILL

NEVER ST HAVE TO BE OPENED.

WHITEMAN ALSO SELLS CROP

INSURANCE TO FARMERS IN

VIRGINIA, WEST VIRGINIA,

AND MARYLAND, AND HE SAYS

THERE IS ONE UNIFIED

PRINCIPLE.

WE ARE IN FAVOR OF FREE

TRADE.

THE AMERICAN PRODUCERS ARE

INCREDIBLY GOOD AT

PRODUCING CORN AND

SOYBEANS, AND IF THERE IS

DEMAND OUT THERE, WE

TYPICALLY MEET AND EXCEED

IT, ALMOST TO OUR OWN

DEMISE.

AND SO WE WANT TO KEEP

THAT DEMAND UP AND

ELIMINATE ANYTHING THAT

MIGHT INHIBIT OUR PRODUCTS

FROM GOING ANYWHERE IN THE

WORLD WHERE PEOPLE MIGHT

NEED THEM.

Jennifer: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS,

VIRGINIA.

Mark: AMERICANS ARE

GETTING AN EXTRA DAY TO

FILE THEIR TAXES AFTER THE

I.R.S. WEBSITE CRASHED ON

TAX DAY.

THE I.R.S. SAYS EVERYONE

HAS UNTIL MIDNIGHT TONIGHT

TO COMPLETE THEIR TAVERNS.

TASKS.

THE AGENCY DID NOT SAY HOW

MANY PEOPLE WERE AFFECTED

BY THAT OUTAGE.

> COMING UP, ANCIENT

HISTORY THROUGH A MODERN

LENS.

WE'LL SHOW YOU THE NEW

PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT THAT

REVEALS THE BIBLICAL

PROPHECY OF ISRAEL.

Mark: WELCOME BACK.

NEARLY 3,000 YEARS AGO,

HEBREW PROPHETS WROTE

ABOUT HOW THE LAND OF

ISRAEL WOULD BE

TRANSFORMED.

NOW A NEW BOOK SHOWS

REMARKABLE, AND EVEN

PROPHETIC CHANGES IN THIS

70 YEARS SINCE ISRAEL

BECAME A NATION.

CHRIS MITCHELL EXPLAINS

FROM JERUSALEM.

Chris: 150 YEARS AGO,

FAMED AUTHOR MARK TWAIN

VISITED THE HOLY LAND AND

WROTE: "IT WAS A DESOLATE

COUNTRY AND A SILENT AND

MOURNFUL EXPANSE."

HE TALKS ABOUT HOW YOU

CAN TRAVEL IN 10 MILES IN

ANY DIRECTION AND NOT SEE

A SINGLE PERSON.

SO ONE OF THE TOWNS WE DID

SOME PHOTOGRAPHY WAS WAS

OF A SMALL TOWN OF AFULA.

IT WAS ESTABLISHED IN THE

EARLY 1900s, SO 50, 60

YEARS AFTER MARK TWAIN IT

WAS A SMALL SETTLEMENT,

AND TODAY IT IS A BOOMING

ISRAELI CITY.

Chris: DOUG HERSHEY

AND HIS TEAM CHOSE 200

PHOTOGRAPHS OF ISRAEL,

FROM THE 1880s TO THE

1940s.

IN HIS NEW BOOK, "ISRAEL

RISING: THE LAND OF

ISRAEL REAWAKENS," HERSHEY

CHRONICLES THE CHANGES

FROM THAT TIME SPAN UNTIL

TODAY.

IT HAS BEEN PART OF THE

JOY.

WE HAVE THESE OLD PHOTOS

OF TEL AVIV, OF LESS THAN

100 YEARS AGO, OF SHACKS

ON SAND DUNES WITH CAM CAMELS

ON THE BEACH.

Chris: THE BOOK

FOLLOWS EZEKIEL'S PROGRAMS

WHERE IN CHAPTER 36, VERSE

8, THE PROPHET DECLARED:

"BUT YOU, OH, MOUNTAINS OF

ISRAEL, YOU SHALL SHOOT

FORTH YOUR BRANCHES AND

FRUIT."

HE IS PROPHECYING TO

THE LAPPE LAND THAT WHEN ISRAEL

RETURNS TO THE NATION,

PEOPLE WILL BE MULTIPLIED

ON THE LAND, THE LAND WILL

BE CULTIVATED AND SOWN.

Chris: THESE SIDE BY

SIDE PHOTOS SHOW THE

TRANSFORMATIONS.

HERE IS JERUSALEM NEAR THE

KING DAVID HOTEL IN THE

1930s, AND THE SAME VIEW

TODAY.

THIS IS THE HEBREW

UNIVERSITY CAMPUS IN 1925

AND WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE

NOW.

FROM THE NORTH IN HAIFA,

TO THE SOUTH IN BE BEAR BASHABI,

HE SAYS IT IS HISTORY

COMING ALIVE.

WE'RE LIVING IN A TIME

WHERE 2600, 2700

PROPHECIES HAVE BEEN LYING

DORMANT FOR ABOUT THAT

LONG, AND MANY ARE COMING

TO PASS.

THE MOST REPEATED PROMISE

THROUGH THE SCRIPTURES IS

GOD WILL BRING HIS PEOPLE

BACK TO THE LAND.

AND WHEN THEY DO, THERE IS

GOING TO BE DRAMATIC

CHANGES, AND WE'RE SEEING

THOSE.

Chris: HERSHEY SAYS

THE LAND ITSELF SEEMED TO

BE WAITING FOR ITS ANCIENT

PEOPLE TO RETURN.

THIS LAND HAS BEEN

CONQUERED 15, 20 DIFFERENT

TIMES.

IT NEVER BECOMES A

HOMELAND FOR ANY OTHER

PEOPLE GROUP.

AND THE LAND WOULD NEVER

PRODUCE FOR ANY OTHER

PEOPLE GROUP.

ISRAEL MOVES BACK IN, AND

SUDDENLY THE VAST DESERT

WASTELANDS ARE NOW

PRODUCING FLOWERS AND

FRUITS.

WHEN ISRAEL RETURNS, JACOB

WILL TAKE THE EARTH AND

PRODUCE FRUITS.

WE'RE FINDING TODAY IT IS

VERY LITERAL.

IT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW.

Chris: HERSHEY SAYS

THE BOOK PROVIDES A VISUAL

OPPORTUNITY FOR THOSE WHO

HAVE NEVER VISITED ISRAEL,

AND IT HAS ALSO STRUCK A

CORD WITH THE YOUNGER

GENERATIONS.

MOST MILLENNIALS ARE

READY FOR SOMETHING REAL.

THEY WANT TO SEE SOMETHING

PRACTICAL.

AS MUCH AS THE THEOLOGY

CHRISTIANITY THEY'VE BEEN

RAISED ON, THEY'RE READY

FOR SOMETHING SOLID.

THEY'REETHEY'RE READY FOR

SOMETHING REAL.

EVEN NOW WHEN I SPEAK IN

THE STATES, SOMETIMES

THEY'LL HAVE QUESTIONS

ABOUT THEOLOGY OR

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE LAND,

AND USUALLY MY ANSWER

REVOLVES AROUND, LET ME

SHOW YOU.

COME WITH ME TO ISRAEL,

AND I'LL SHOW YOU MYSELF.

Chris: AS ISRAEL

CELEBRATES ITS 70th

ANNIVERSARY, HERSHEY SEES

ISRAEL AS A MIRACLE.

ABSOLUTELY.

ISRAEL IS THE TIME CLOCK,

AS MANY PEOPLE HAVE HEARD

AND HAVE SAID.

I BELIEVE THAT AS WELL.

THERE IS SO MUCH THAT IS

HAPPENING HERE IN A VERY

SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME.

TO ME IT IS ONE OF THE

MOST PROFOUND MIRACLES OF

OUR DAY.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Mark: STILL AHEAD,

CHRISTIANS ACROSS AMERICA

ARE PACKING IN THE PEWS

AND ALSO PACKING ON THE

POUNDS.

SEE WHAT IS BEING DONE TO

HELP THE FAITHFUL SHED THE

FAT.

THANKS FOR JOINING

Mark: IT'S WELL-KNOWN

THAT MOST CHURCH FUNCTIONS

FEATURE FOOD, AND

STATISTICS SHOW OBESITY IS

PARTICULARLY RAMPANT AMONG

CHURCH-GOERS.

THE NEWS ISN'T ALL BAD,

HOWEVER.

LORIE JOHNSON TELLS US

ABOUT A PROGRAM DESIGNED

TO HELP CHURCHES SPREAD

THE GOOD NEWS WITHOUT

EXPANDING WAIST LINES.

Lorie: OVER ALL, THE

CHURCH DOES A PRETTY GOOD

JOB AVOIDING UNHEALTHY

THINGS LIKE SMOKING,

ALCOHOL, DRUGS, AND

PROMISCUITY.

BUT MISSES THE MARK WHEN

IT COMES TO OBESITY.

RESEARCH SHOWS PEOPLE WHO

BEGIN ATTENDING CHURCH IN

THEIR 20s ARE MORE

LIKELY TO BECOME OBESE BY

MID-AGE THAN THOSE WHO

DON'T GO TO CHURCH.

THIS ESPECIALLY TROUBLED

DOCTOR AND CHRISTIAN

DANIEL AIMAN.

I ACTUALLY PRAYED ABOUT

IT BECAUSE I WENT TO MY

OWN CHURCH AND SAW THEM

SERVING HOTDOGS,

DOUGHNUTS, ICE CREAM,

BACON, SAUSAGE.

AND I'M, LIKE, THEY'RE

GIVING YOU ALL THIS FOOD

TO KILL YOU EARLY.

SAVE THEM AND THEN KILL

THEM.

Lorie: HE FEELS IT IS

HIGH TIME THE CHURCH DEALS

WITH ITS WEIGHT PROBLEM.

IT IS JUST NOT OKAY

WHEN YOUR BODY IS THE

TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,

FOR CHURCHES TO BASICALLY

POISON YOU WITH

LOW-QUALITY FOOD AND

THINK, WELL, THAT'S WHAT

WE'VE ALWAYS DONE, SO IT

IS OKAY.

Lorie: AS A BRAIN

IMAGING SPECIALIST, THE

DOCTOR PUBLISHED TWO

STUDIES SHOWING AS WEIGHT

INCREASES, THE BRAIN

ACTUALLY SHRINKS.

IT IS WIDELY KNOWN THAT

OBESITY LOWERS QUALITY OF

LIFE, ADDS MILLIONS TO

HEALTH CARE COSTS, AND CAN

LEAD TO AN EARLY GRAVE.

NATIONWIDE, THE SOUTH

LEADS THE PACK.

AND THAT'S ALSO WHERE

THERE ARE MORE EVANGELICAL

CHRISTIAN CHURCHES.

AND I'M NOT OKAY WITH

THAT.

YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE BELT

WIDENING.

Lorie: WITH THAT IN

MIND, THE DOCTOR

CO-DEVELOPED A

CHURCH-BASED WEIGHT LOSS

PROGRAM KNOWN AS "THE

DANIEL PLAN."

WHILE THE CLASSES LAST SIX

WEEKS, THE DIET IS

INTENDED AS A LIFE-LONG

DISCIPLINE.

I FEEL SO GOOD NOW.

I SWIM A MILE A DAY.

I WAS IN A WHEELCHAIR AT

ONE TIME.

I COULDN'T KEEP MY

BALANCE.

BUT NOW, LOOK AT ME.

Lorie: 75-YEAR-OLD

PHYLLIS NEIL JOINED THE

DANIEL PLAN AT HER

YORKTOWN, VIRGINIA,

CHURCH.

SHE SUFFERED FROM PAIN,

DEPRESSION, AND COULDN'T

SLEEP DUE TO A NUMBER OF

HEALTH ISSUES.

THE VIK VICODIN AND AMBIEN

AND PROZAC -- I WAS ON SO

MUCH STUFF.

Lorie: PHYLLIS

ULTIMATELY LOST 65 POUNDS,

STOPPED TAKING

MEDICATIONS, FELT HAPPY

AND BEGAN SLEEPING LIKE A

BABY.

SHE ATTRIBUTES MUCH OF HER

SUCCESS TO THE FAITH

ELEMENT OF THE PLAN.

AND GOD JUST TOOK

CONTROL.

AND HE HAS JUST BLESSED MY

LIFE SO MUCH.

Lorie: HER

75-YEAR-OLD HUSBAND,

DENNIS, GOT ON BOARD, TOO.

I LOST 65 POUNDS JUST

BY EATING GOD'S FOOD.

Lorie: DENNIS AND

PHYLLIS BELIEVE SO MUCH IN

THE PROGRAM THAT THEY NOW

TEACH OTHERS.

ONE OF THE THINGS I

TELL PEOPLE IN OUR CLASSES

IS IF GOD CAME DOWN TODAY

AND SAID, LOOK, I WANT YOU

TO DO THIS TASK FOR ME,

AND THEN YOU TELL HIM

YOU'RE NOT PHYSICALLY FIT

TO DO IT BECAUSE YOU'RE

OVERWEIGHT, THAT DOESN'T

WORK.

Lorie: THE NEILS

EMPHASIZE THE IMPORTANCE

OF BREAKING FREE FROM

PROCESSED FOODS BECAUSE OF

INGREDIENTS LIKE M.S.G.,

INDUSTRIALIZED OILS AND

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP.

DIABETES, CANCER, ALL

OF IT IS RELATED TO SUGAR.

AND WE'VE GOT TO GET THAT

OUT OF OUR SYSTEM.

WE'VE BEEN HIJACKED BY THE

FOOD INDUSTRY.

Lorie: INSTEAD OF

PACKAGED ITEMS, PHYLLIS

FILLS HER KITCHEN WITH

NATURAL, WHOLE FOODS, FREE

OF CHEMICALS AND

SWEETENERS.

CHICKEN TRIPS STRIPS, CUT UP

VEGETABLES, FRUITS AND

NUTS.

I KEEP THE FRUIT

AVAILABLE.

THE GRANDCHILDREN DON'T

ASK FOR CANDY HERE.

THEY GO OVER AND GET A

PIECE OF FRUIT.

Lorie: DRINKING

PLENTY OF WATER HELPS US

MANAGE OUR WEIGHT BECAUSE

BELIEVE IT OR NOT,

SOMETIMES OUR BRAIN TRICKS

US INTO THINKING WE'RE

HUNGRY WHEN WE'RE ACTUALLY

JUST THIRSTY.

PEOPLE ADHERING TO THE

DANIEL PLAN EXERCISE

REGULARLY AND ATTEND

SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS.

SO WHILE OBESITY CONTINUES

TO PLAGUE THE CHURCH,

CHRISTIANS NATIONWIDE ARE

SHEDDING MILLIONS OF

POUNDS, THANKS TO THE

DANIEL PLAN, NAMED AFTER

THE BIBLE HERO WHO'S DIET

REFLECTED HIS COMMITMENT

TO GOD.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Mark: GREAT TO SEE

THAT SO MANY PEOPLE ACROSS

THE COUNTRY ARE SHEDDING

THE POUNDS AND THAT THERE

IS A SPIRITUAL COMPONENT

TO IT AS WELL.

> WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK

WITH MORE OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

Mark: CBN'S "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" IS GIVING

CHILDREN IN COSTA RICA

ACCESS TO MEDICAL AND

DENTAL CARE.

VOLUNTEERS FROM "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" RECENTLY VISITED

THEY PROVIDE TEETH

CLEANING AND PHYSICAL

CHECKUPS FOR MORE THAN 100

CHILDREN.

AND THE CHILDREN WERE ABLE

PAINTING, GAMES, AND A

VIEWING OF "SUPERBOOK."

THANKS TO THE EVENT, 24
