Announcer: THIS IS

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

Mark: THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M MARK MARTIN.

NEW INFORMATION THIS

MORNING ABOUT THAT DEADLY

SOUTHWEST AIRLINES

EXPLOSION AND THE PILOT

WHO LANDED THE PLANE

SAFELY ON THE GROUND.

FEDERAL REGULATORS SAY

THIS ISN'T THE FIRST TIME

SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAS

HAPPENED, AND THEY'RE

SETTING NEW STANDARDS IN

PLACE TO KEEP IT FROM

HAPPENING AGAIN.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Caitlin: THE ISSUE,

ACCORDING TO

INVESTIGATORS, WAS THE FAN

BLADE IN THE ENGINE.

IT BROKE OFF DURING THAT

SOUTHWEST FLIGHT FROM NEW

YORK TO DALLAS, SENDING

SHRAPNEL FORWARD AND

CAUSING AN EXPLOSION.

WE'RE VERY CONCERNED

ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR

EVENT.

ENGINE FAILURES LIKE THIS

SHOULD NOT OCCUR,

OBVIOUSLY.

Caitlin: IT IS THE

SECOND TIME IN ONLY TWO

YEARS THAT THIS EXACT TYPE

OF FAILURE HAS HAPPENED IN

THE EXACT SAME SPOT.

THEY SAY THERE MIGHT BE

A MANUFACTURING ISSUE

THERE, OR AN INSPECTION

ISSUE OR A MAINTENANCE

ISSUE.

Caitlin: THE F.A.A.

DOESN'T EVER WANT IT TO

HAPPEN AGAIN.

THE FEDERAL AVIATORS WILL

ISSUE NEW INSPECTIONS ON

THE NEARLY 7,000 ENGINES

AROUND THE WORLD.

IT WILL REQUIRE AN

ULTRASONIC TESTING OF THE

ENGINES.

OUR PRELIMINARY

EXAMINATION OF THIS IS

THERE IS EVIDENCE OF METAL

FATIGUE WHERE THE BLADE

SEPARATED.

Caitlin: THE

EXPLOSION THAT FOLLOWED

KILLED ONE PASSENGER,

NEARLY SUCKING HER OUT OF

THE WINDOW.

SHE DIED OF BLUNT IMPACT

TRAUMA TO HER HEAD, NECK,

AND TORSO.

INVESTIGATORS ARE WORKING

TO UNDERSTAND HOW THE

WINDOW CAME OUT OF THE

PLANE.

OUR EXPERTS HAVE BEEN

DOCUMENTING THE WINDOW

FRAME AREA TO UNDERSTAND

HOW THE WINDOW CAME OUT.

I WANT TO NOTE WE HAVE

FOUND NO WINDOW MATERIALS.

THE A ACRYLIC THAT THE

WINDOW PANES ARE MADE

OF -- WE ANNOUNCED NONE OF

THAT INSIDE THE AIRPLANE.

Caitlin: ONE

PASSENGER SAID, THE,

QUOTE, "GOD SENT HIS

ANGELS TO WATCH OVER US."

> THE PILOT SAFELY

LANDED THE PLANE.

TAMMIE JO SHULTS IS A

CHRISTIAN, AND ONCE SAID

THAT SITTING IN THE

CAPTAIN'S CHAIR GIVES HER

A CHANCE TO WITNESS

CHRIST.

Mark: HERE IS A LOOK

AT SOME OF THE OTHER

HEADLINES: PRESIDENT

TRUMP SAYS MEETING WITH

KIM JONG-UN IS NOT A SURE

THING.

MIKE POMPEO SECRETLY MET

WITH KIM MORE THAN TWO

WEEKS AGO TO LAY THE

GROUND WORK FOR THE MEET,

BUT TRUMP SAYS IF HE FEELS

THE MEETING WILL NOT BE

FRUITFUL, HE WILL PULL

OUT.

IF THEY DO MEET, IT WILL

BE THE FIRST TIME LEADERS

FROM BOTH NATIONS HAVE MET

IN 60 YEARS.

> CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR

JERRY BROWN SAYS HE WILL

JOIN PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

BORDER MISSION.

HE SAYS THE TROOPS WILL

FOCUS ON DRUG AND GUN

CRIME, NOT IMMIGRATION.

> MEANWHILE, FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN 60 YEARS,

CUBA WILL THE NOT HAVE A

CASTRO FOR PRESIDENT.

MIGUEL BERUDAUDAS WAS VOTED

IN ON WEDNESDAY, ENDING

THE FAMILY'S ABSOLUTE

RULE.

CASTRO, HOWEVER, WILL

REMAIN THE HEAD OF THE

COMMUNIST PARTY.

OTHER STORIES AT

cbnnews.com.

> SEVERE WEATHER HAS

SWEPT ACROSS THE NATION

THIS WEEK, FROM HAWAII TO

VIRGINIA.

ON THE HAWAIIAN ISLAND OF

CUKUAUI, RELIEF EFFORTS ARE

UNDER WAY.

EMERGENCY CREWS HELPED TO

EVACUATE OVER 200 PEOPLE

WHO'S HOMES AND VEHICLES

WERE NEARLY SWALLOWED BY

FLOODWATERS.

AND A LARGE NUMBER OF

WILDFIRES ARE RAGING IN

OKLAHOMA, TEARING DOWN

POWER LINES, LEAVING

PEOPLE WITHOUT POWER.

THIS AFTER PARTS OF

VIRGINIA AND NORTH

CAROLINA WERE HIT WITH

SEVERE WINDS AND TORNADO

SIGHTINGS EARLIER THIS

WEEK, WHICH DAMAGED

SEVERAL BUILDINGS.

THANKFULLY, NO INJURIES

HAVE BEEN REPORTED IN ANY

OF THESE SITUATIONS.

> RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

ADVOCATES ARE SPEAKING OUT

ABOUT THE UNJUST

IMPRISONMENT OF PASTOR

ANDREW BRUNSON.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US MORE FROM THE SUMMIT IN

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: INHUMANE

CONDITIONS, OVER CROWDED

PRISON CELLS, AND AN

UNJUST TRIAL, THESE ARE

JUST SOME OF THE THINGS

AMERICAN PASTOR ANDREW

BRUNSON FACES.

HE CAN NEVER LEAVE HIS

CELL.

NOT TO EAT, NOT TO GO TO

THE RESTROOM.

Reporter: CHRISTINA

ARIAGA FROM INTERNATIONAL

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM HAS

PUSHED FOR BRUNSON'S

RELEASE SINCE HE WAS FIRST

DETAINED 18 MONTHS AGO.

SHE IS ONE OF JUST A FEW

PEOPLE WHO HAVE SEEN HIM

IN PRISON.

HE REALLY TRIES HARD TO

KEEP HIS SPIRITS UP, BUT

THE FIRST CELL HE WAS IN

WAS ONLY MEANT FOR EIGHT

PEOPLE, AND HE WAS THERE

WITH 28 OTHER CELL MATES.

Reporter: SHE SAYS IN

EVIDENCE EXISTS TO SUPPORT

CHARGES THAT BRUNSON

COMMITTEDECOMMITTED ESPIONAGE

AGAINST TURKEY.

IT IS SO INCREDIBLY

UNJUST FOR THIS MAN, WHO'S

ONLY CRIME IS TO BELIEVE

IN GOD AND TELL OTHER

PEOPLE ABOUT IT, THAT NOW

HE IS INVOLVED IN A GAME

OF HOSTAGE DIPLOMACY.

Reporter: BRUNSON, A

FATHER OF THREE, HAS

MINISTERED IN TURKEY FOR

23 YEARS.

AT HIS HEARING, HE DID NOT

ACCEPT THE CHARGES AGAINST

HIM, AND MAINTAINED HE WAS

NEVER INVOLVED IN ILLEGAL

ACTIVITIES.

THE TURKISH GOVERNMENT

HAS GOTCH GIVEN NO CYPRESS THEY PLANS TO

RELEASE HIM.

Reporter: FORMER

CONGRESSMAN FRANK WOLF

SAYS THE CHURCH MUST NOT

REMAIN SILENT ABOUT

ONGOING INTERNATIONAL

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION.

I THINK IT IS A VERY

DIFFICULT TIME FOR

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AROUND

THE WORLD.

Reporter: HE IS

PARTICULARLY CONCERNED

ABOUT CHRISTIANITY IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

BIKER BEFORE THE WAR BROKE

OUT, THERE WERE ONE

MILLION CHRISTIAN CHRISTIANS IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

Reporter: WOLF URGES

CHURCHES AROUND THE

COUNTRY TO ACTIVELY GET

INVOLVED IN HELPING

CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE

EAST OR WARNS THERE MAY

COME A DAY WHEN THERE ARE

NONE LEFT.

REPORTING FROM WASHINGTON,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN

NEWS.

Mark: COMING UP,

ISRAEL TURNS 70.

WE'RE TAKING A LOOK BACK

AS THE NATION CELEBRATES

THIS LANDMARK ANNIVERSARY.

Mark: WELCOME BACK.

Mark: WELCOME BACK.

ISRAEL OPENED ITS 70th

ANNIVERSARY FESTIVITIES

WITH SONG, DANCE, AND

FIREWORKS.

BUT AS CHRIS MITCHELL

REPORTS FROM JERUSALEM,

THEY ALSO COMMEMORATED THE

DAY UNDER THE SHADOW OF AN

IRANIAN THREAT.

Reporter: ISRAEL'S

NATIONAL CELEBRATION WAS A

THEME OF TECHNOLOGICAL

PROGRESS AND SURVIVAL

THROUGH SEVEN DECADES OF

ITS MODERN HISTORY.

THEY TOLD THE STORY OF THE

JEWISH PEOPLE, FROM MOSES

TO THE EARLY PIONEERS, TO

THE HOLOCAUST, TO THE

PLANTING OF THE LAND AND

THE GROWTH OF TECHNOLOGY.

THEY SAID THE REBIRTH OF

THEIR NATION WAS WHERE

PROPHECY BECAME THEIR

REALITY, AND THE ANSWER TO

THEIR PRAYERS.

WE PRAYED TO GOD TO

RETURN TO JERUSALEM HIS

CITY, AND NOW, IN 1948, 70

YEARS AGO, JERUSALEM, HIS

CITY, BECAME AVAILABLE TO

US.

THE JEWISH PRAYERS

ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT

RETURNING TO ZION,

RETURNING TO JERUSALEM,

AND HERE WE ARE, 70 YEARS,

IN SPITE OF ALL OF THE

THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED,

AND THE THREATS FROM IRAN

THEY TALK ABOUT, THERE IS

STILL THE TECHNOLOGY AND

THE THINGS GOING ON THAT

REALLY SEEM QUITE

MIRACULOUS.

Chris: EARLIER, A

SIREN WAILED THROUGHOUT

THE COUNTRY AS ISRAELIS

STOOD SILENT AND

REMEMBERED THEIR FALLEN

THROUGH THEIR MANY WARS

AND TERROR ATTACKS.

THE COMMEMORATION AND

CELEBRATIONS TOOK PLACE

DESPITE THREATS FROM IRAN.

AN IRANIAN SPOKESMAN

BLAMED ISRAEL FOR AN

ATTACK ON AN IRANIAN BASE

INSIDE SYRIA AND WARNED

IRAN WOULD RETALIATE.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAID

ISRAEL WOULD FACE THE

IRANIAN THREAT.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

TODAY, ALSO, WE ARE NOT

DETERRED FROM THE STRUGGLE

AGAINST THOSE WHO STRIVE

TO ANNUA ANNIHILATE US, BECAUSE

WE KNOW HOW TO DEFEND

OURSELVES WITH OUR OWN

FORCES, WHICH IS THE

ESSENCE OF INDEPENDENCE.

Chris: NETANYAHU ALSO

THANKED PRESIDENT TRUMP

AND AMERICA.

Through Translator:

WE ALL APPRECIATE THE

STRONG ALLIANCE WITH THE

UNITED STATES.

WE ALL WELCOME PRESIDENT

TRUMP HISTORIC DECISION TO

RECOGNIZE JERUSALEM AS OUR

CAPITAL, AND TO TRANSFER

THE EMBASSY OF THE

STRONGEST POWER IN THE

WORLD TO IT.

THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.

THANK YOU, AMERICA.

Chris: THE

CELEBRATION ENDED WITH A

RENDITION OF THE SONG

"HALLELUJAH," FOR THE

THINGS THAT WERE AND THE

THINGS TO COME.

Chris: CRIS CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Mark: 70 YEARS AGO, A

DECLARATION SIGNED IN A

TEL AVIV ART GALLERY

CHANGED THE WORLD FOREVER.

AGAINST OVERWHELMING ODDS,

THE FLEDGLING STATE OF

ISRAEL NOT ONLY THRIVED,

BUT GREW BEYOND

EXPECTATION.

SCOTT ROSS LOOKS BACK AT

THAT MEMO, ALONG WITH

SOMEONE WHO WAS THERE.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: IN

INDEPENDENCE HALL, DAVID

BEN-GURION DECLARED THE

BIRTH OF THE MODERN STATE

OF ISRAEL.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

NEARLY 2,000 YEARS, THE

JEWISH PEOPLE HAD A

NATION.

HE CHOSE THE WORDS, WE

HEREBY DECLARE THE

ESTABLISHMENT OF AA JEWISH A JEWISH

STATE IN THE LAND OF

ISRAEL TO BE KNOWN AS THE

STATE OF ISRAEL.

THIS WAS THE BIRTH OF A

JEWISH STATE FOR ALL JEWS.

BEBEN-GURION WAS STANDING

HERE AS THE VOICE OF

11 MILLION JEWS AROUND THE

WORLD WHO HAD NO VOICE AND

NOWHERE TO GO TO.

Reporter: I SPOKE

WITH ISAAC DRAWER WHO

LEADS THE EDUCATION EFFORT

HERE.

IT WAS PROMISED TO US

BY GOD.

WE ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE IN

THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD

THAT LIVE ON THE SAME

LAND, SPEAKING THE SAME

LANGUAGE, AND BELIEVING

THE SAME GOD MORE THAN

3,000 YEARS.

Reporter: WE ARE IN

AN HISTORIC SETTING HERE.

WHERE ARE WE AND WHAT

HAPPENED?

THIS IS THE ROOM WHERE

THE JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL

WAS BORN SEVEN YEARS AGO.

IN THIS TINY ROOM WITH

THIS SAME FURNITURE, A

CEREMONY THAT HAS LASTED

32 MINUTES AND SHOOK THE

WORLD.

Reporter: AS BRITISH

RULERS LEFT ISRAEL THAT

DAY, FIVE ARAB ARMIES

INVADED.

WHEN YOU MIX THE

HAPPIEST DAY FOR THE

JEWISH PEOPLE, ONE OF THE

GREATEST MOMENTS OF OUR

NATION, WITH ONE OF THE

MOST DANGEROUS AND SAD

DAYS, WHEN ISRAEL WAS THAT

CLOSE TO COMPLETE

ANNIHILATION.

Reporter: WHY THIS

BUILDING, WHY HERE, WHY

TEL AVIV?

THIS BUILDING WAS

SIMPLY THE SAFEST

AUDITORIUM IN THE CITY OF

TEL AVIV.

THE PEOPLE FORMED AROUND

TEL AVIV BECAUSE THEY

COULD NOT INVITE PEOPLE

FROM JERUSALEM BECAUSE

JERUSALEM WAS

DISCONNECTED.

ONLY 350 OF THEM WERE

LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE IN THE

ROOM WITH NO AIR

CONDITIONING.

Reporter: AMONG THE

CROWD OF WITNESSES WAY

YAAL SHAAT.

HE WAS THE RIGHT HAND

OF BE BEN-GURION.

AND WHEN THEY CAME TO THE

CEREMONY, THEY CAME WITH

AN INVITATION.

IT SAYS WE ARE HONORED TO

INVITE YOU TO THE CEREMONY

OF INDEPENDENCE.

AND THEN IT GOES, "WE ASK

YOU TO KEEP IT AS A

SECRET."

Reporter: REALLY?

YOU DON'T WANT

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE TO

STORM THE STREETS WHEN YOU

EXPECT AN AIR RAID THAT

DAY.

AND THEN HE SAYS, THE

INVITATION IS PERSONAL,

LIKE, COME ALONE.

AND THEN YOU HAVE

MR. SHARON WHO BROUGHT HIS

DAUGHTER AND SISTER WITH

HIM.

AND HE SAID THEY WILL

SHARE THE SAME CHAIR.

Reporter: I MET GAAL

AT HER HOME IN TEL AVIV.

WE SHARED THE CHAIR

THERE, NEXT TO THE WALL.

Reporter: SHE TOLD ME

HOW JUST THE DAY BEFORE

HER FATHER DICTATED, AND

GAAL WROTE, A DRAFT OF THE

DECLARATION OF SPEANS.

THIS IOFINDEPENDENCE.

THIS IS MY FATHER'S

VERSION OF THE

DECLARATION.

THIS IS MY HANDWRITING.

THIS IS A COPY OF THE

ORIGINAL.

THE ORIGINAL IS IN THE

ARCHIVES.

Reporter: THIS TOOK

YOU HOW LONG?

ABOUT THREE-QUARTERS OF

AN HOUR TO AN HOUR.

Reporter: HOW OLD

WERE YOU?

17 AND A HALF.

I WASN'T INTERESTED IN

THIS.

I KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO

HAPPEN FROM THE AGE OF

ZERO, THAT WE WERE GOING

TO HAVE A STATE, AND WE

ARE RIGHTFULLY HERE.

Reporter: DURING THAT

TIME, SHE AND HER FAMILY

LIVED IN NEW YORK, WHERE

HER FATHER WOULD SCOUR THE

UNITED NATIONS, CONVINCING

COUNTRIES TO SUPPORT THE

SOON TO BE BORN STATE.

DO YOU REMEMBER THE EVENT

ITSELF, WHEN BEN-GURION

STOOD UP AND READ?

IT IS EPIC.

IT IS REALLY EPIC.

IT IS POETRY, ACTUALLY.

THE ONLY TIME I WAS REALLY

MOVED, I MUST SAY, WAS

WHEN RABBI LEVINE MADE THE

OLD-AGE JEWISH BLESSING...

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: THAT

ANCIENT JEWISH PRAYER,

RECITED ON MOMENTOUS

OCCASIONS, THANKS GOD, WHO

HAS GIVEN US LIFE,

SUSTAINED US, AND ALLOWED

US TO REACH THIS DAY.

I'M NOT RELIGIOUS, BUT

THIS BLESSING HAS AN ECHO

OF GENERATIONS.

Reporter: DID YOU

SING?

I THINK SO, YES.

AND THEN EVERYBODY STOOD

UP, AND IT WAS THE

NATIONAL ANTHEM.

Reporter: THE VERY

NEXT DAY, WHICH WAS THE

SABBATH, PRESIDENT HARRY

S. TRUMAN BECAME THE FIRST

WORLD LEADER TO RECOGNIZE

ISRAEL.

THE PENTAGON AND THE

STATE DEPARTMENT TRULY

BELIEVED THAT BEN-GURION,

THE LEADER OF ISRAEL, IS

LEADING THE WORLD INTO A

NEW CAPACITY.

ONE PERSON, HOWEVER,

THOUGHT DIFFERENTLY.

HIS NAME WAS HARRY S.

TRUMAN.

HE UNDERSTOOD SOMETHING

THAT MOST OF HIS TOP

ADVISORS AND MINISTERS

FAILED TO SEE.

THIS IS TRULY A PROPHECY

BEING REALIZED.

Reporter: 70 YEARS

LATER, IT IS CLEAR THAT

TRUMAN WAS RIGHT.

WE ARE FASTER, BETTER

THAN EVER TODAY.

THE ISRAELIS ARE DOING

WONDERFULLY WELL.

THEY CALLED US A START-UP

NATION.

AND NOW WE SEE ISRAEL

STANDING, AND THANK GOD

TOGETHER WITH AMERICANS,

AND SUDDENLY PEOPLE

UNDERSTAND WHY WE ARE

HERE.

Reporter: SCOTT ROSS

FOR CBN IN TEL AVIV.

Mark: STILL AHEAD,

COMFORT CARE.

WE'RE GOING TO BREAK DOWN

WHAT THAT TERM MEANS AND

WHY SOME, LIKE FORMER

FIRST LADY BARBARA BUSH,

TOOK THIS ROUTE FOR

END-OF-LIFE CARE.

Mark: THE LATE FORMER

FIRST LADY BARBARA BUSH

INTRODUCED MANY AMERICANS

TO A NEW PHRASE, "COMFORT

CARE."

LORIE JOHNSON TELLS US

WHAT IS INVOLVED WITH THIS

END OF LIFE DECISION.

Lorie: NOT EVERYONE

CHOOSES TO FIGHT THEIR

HEALTH ISSUE TO THE BITTER

END.

SOME PEOPLE, LIKE BARBARA

BUSH, OPT FOR WHAT IS

KNOWN AS COMFORT CARE

INSTEAD.

ALSO KNOWN AS PALLIATIVE

CARE, COMFORT CARE IS WHEN

A PATIENT DECIDES TO END

INTENSIVE MEDICAL

TREATMENT.

IT DOES NOT MEAN THE

PATIENT STOPS ALL MEDICAL

CARE, AS THE NAME

SUGGESTS.

THEY STILL RECEIVE ONES

THAT MAKE THEM AS

COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE,

RETAINING THEIR DIGNITY.

WE CAN'T CHOOSE WHEN

WE'LL DIE.

GOD HAS NUMBERED OUR DAYS.

BUT WE CAN CHOOSE HOW WE

WILL APPROACH THAT DEATH.

IF WE BELIEVE WE'RE GOING

TO SEE GOD, WE'RE GOING TO

SEE ALL OF OUR LOVED ONES

AGAIN, BUT THERE ARE ALSO

A LOT OF OTHER ISSUES THAT

PULL ON US, SOME THAT MAKE

US WANT TO STAY AND

CONTINUE TO WORK FOR THE

LORD.

Lorie: WE SOMETIMES

HEAR ABOUT PEOPLE WITH

TERMINAL CANCER CHOOSING

COMFORT CARE, BUT

MRS. BUSH HAD CONGESTIVE

HEART FAILURE AND THE LONG

DISEASE, C.O.P.D.

IT IS BOTH PHYSICAL

CARE, EMOTIONAL CARE, AND

SPIRITUAL CARE FOR THE

PERSON WHO IS GOING

THROUGH THE DEATH PROCESS

AND FOR THEIR LOVED ONES.

Lorie: COMFORT CARE

IS WHEN A PATIENT

INSTRUCTS THEIR DOCTOR TO

GO AGAINST THE URGE TO

EXTEND LIFE AT ALL COSTS,

COSTS THAT CAN BE QUITE

HIGH.

IN FACT, A REPORTED 25% OF

HEALTH EXPENDITURES AMONG

PEOPLE OVER 65 USUALLY

OCCUR IN THE LAST YEAR OF

LIFE.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

COMFORT CARE AND HOSPICE

CARE IS THAT HOSPICE IS

FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT

EXPECTED TO LIVE LONGER

THAN SIX MONTHS, AND

TYPICALLY INVOLVES FEWER

MEDICAL TREATMENTS.

WHILE PEOPLE RECEIVING

COMFORT CARE CAN LIVE

LONGER.

HEALTH EXPERTS SAY NOW IS

THE TIME TO DISCUSS END OF

LIFE ISSUES WITH OUR

FAMILIES AND MAKE OUR

WISHES KNOWN.

IT IS NOT AN EASY

CONVERSATION, BUT ONE THAT

COULD MINIMIZE A LOT OF

PROBLEMS DOWN THE ROAD.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Mark: "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS STILL WORKING

IN PUERTO RICO AFTER A

DEVASTATING HURRICANE

STRUCK THE ISLAND SIX

MONTHS AGO.

PUERTO RICAN FAMILIES

STILL LIVE WITHOUT POWER

AND SAFE WATER.

HURRICANE MARIA DESTROYED

THE WATER PIPES IN THE

COMMUNITY, CAUSING

CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TO

BECOME SICK FROM UNCLEAN

WATER.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

STEPPED IN AND BROUGHT A

REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM TO

THE VILLAGE.

IT PROVIDES NEARLY 2,000

GALLONS OF CLEAN WATER

EACH DAY.

AND NOW VILLAGERS CAN

DRINK WITHOUT FEAR OF

GETTING SICK.
