Announcer: THIS IS

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

Efrem: AND THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR JOINING US.

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS HE IS

READY TO ANNOUNCE THIS

DECISION ON WHETHER TO

WITHDRAW FROM THE 2015

IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL.

THE EYES OF THE WORLD ARE

WATCHING WITH SOME

AMERICAN ALLIES LOBBYING

TO KEEP THE U.S. IN THE

DEAL.

HERE IS CHARLENE AARON.

Charlene: IN A TWEET

ON MONDAY, TRUMP SAID, "I

WILL BE ANNOUNCING MY

DECISION ON THE IRAN DEAL

ON MAY 12th."

HE HAS LONG CRITICIZED THE

DEAL.

President Trump: IT

IS A HORRIBLE AGREEMENT

FOR THE UNITED STATES.

Charlene: THE DEAL

FROZE IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM IN AN EXCHANGE FOR

ECONOMIC SANCTIONS ON

IRAN, BUT IT ALLOWS IRAN

TO RESUME IN EIGHT YEARS,

WITH A PLEDGE NOT TO

RESUME NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

THE PRESIDENT FACES

INTENSE PRESSURE FROM

EUROPEAN ALLIES NOT TO

PULL OUT.

LEADERS OF FRANCE,

GERMANY, AND ENGLAND ALL

RECENTLY VISITING THE

WHITE HOUSE, LOBBYING THE

PRESIDENT TO FIX THE DEAL

BUT NOT TO LEAVE IT.

DOMESTIC CRITICS SAY HE IS

AGAINST IT BECAUSE IT IS

PART OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

LEGACY.

HE WANTS TO SHOW HE CAN

BE TOUGHER AND HE CAN

NEGOTIATE A DIFFERENT

DEAL.

Charlene: JOHN KERRY

HAS BEEN WORKING WITH THE

EUROPEANS AGAINST LEAVING

THE DEAL.

THE PRESIDENT TWEETING

THAT HE SHOULD BUTT OUT,

SAYING THAT THE UNITED

STATES DOES NOT NEED JOHN

KERRY'S POSSIBLY ILLEGAL

SHADOW DIPLOMACY ON THE

VERY BADLY NEGOTIATED BAD

DEAL.

HE IS THE ONE WHO CREATED

THE MESS IN THE FIRST

PLACE.

LAST WEEK BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU ACCUSED IRAN OF

LYING ABOUT ITS NUCLEAR

WEAPONS PROGRAM, CALLING

ON THE PRESIDENT TO DO THE

RIGHT THING.

THE RIGHT THING FOR THE

UNITED STATES, THE RIGHT

THING FOR ISRAEL.

Charlene: THE IRANIAN

PRESIDENT SAID IRAN WANTS

TO KEEP WORKING WITH THE

WORLD IN CORRECTIVE

ENGAGEMENT WITH THE WORLD.

MEANWHILE, SOME NATIONAL

SECURITY EXPERTS AND

EUROPEANS ARE ADVOCATING

FOR A SO-CALLED SOFT EXIT

BEBY RECALLING SANCTIONS

OVER TIME.

Efrem: RESIDENTS IN

THE PATH THE HAWAII'S

VOLCANO ARE ALLOWED TO GO

BACK IN AND GET

BELONGINGS.

THE OFFICIALS SAY THEY DO

NOT KNOW HOW MANY HOMES

AND STRUCTURES ARE GOING

TO BE DAMAGED.

RESIDENTS SAY THEY OFTEN

CANNOT GET HOMEOWNERS

INSURANCE.

HOMEOWNERS DOWN THE ROAD

ARE HOPING THEY CAN SAVE

AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

IT IS SHOCKING.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT IT IS

HAPPENING.

I'VE TALKED TO A FEW

PEOPLE, AND IT IS A

NIGHTMARE.

Efrem: OFFICIALS SAY

IT IS NOT OVER YET, NOTING

THAT AT LEAST TWO MORE

VOLCANIC EVENTS HAVE

SURFACED IN THE AREA.

> HERE IS A LOOK AT SOME

OF THE OTHER HEADLINES

WE'RE FOLLOWING FOR YOU

INSIDE THE NEWSROOM.

A NEW YORK ATTORNEY

RESIGNED AFTER FOUR WOMEN

ACCUSED HIM OF ABUSE.

NOW SCHNEIDERMAN'S FORM

ARE MER GIRLFRIENDS ARE

ACCUSING HIM OF VIOLENTLY

SLAPPING HIM AND CHOKING

HIM.

HE IS DENYING ALL OF THOSE

CLAIMS.

> PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

URGING WEST VIRGINIANS TO

NOT VOTE FOR DON

BLANKENSHIP.

HE WARNS IF HE WINS, IT

COULD DESTROY THE PARTY'S

CHANCE OF DEFEATING JOE

MANCHIN IN DECEMBER.

THE RETIRED CO-EXECUTIVE

WAS RELEASED FROM

PROPOSITION JUST LAST YEAR

FOR HIS ROLE IN A MINE

EXPLOSION THAT KILLED 29

MEN.

> THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS SEEKING

TO DISTANCE ITSELF FROM

RUDY GIULANI WHEN IT COMES

TO FOREIGN POLICY.

THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT

SAYS THE PRESIDENT'S

ATTORNEY HAS NO PERMISSION REASON TO

SPEAK ON THAT.

> PASTOR ANDREW BRUNSON,

THE AMERICAN PASTOR IN

TURKEY, ACCUSED OF

COLLUDING WITH TERRORIST

GROUPS WAS REMANDED INTO

CUSTODY AFTER A PROLONGED

SECOND DAY IN COURT FOR A

TRIAL THAT IS INCREASING

STRAINS BETWEEN WASHINGTON

AND ANKARA.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS

ON HIS CASE.

SHE IS IN WASHINGTON.

Reporter: SENATOR TOM

TILLIS IS SENDING A STRONG

MESSAGE TO TURKEY:

RELEASE PASTOR ANDREW

BRUNSON AND RETURN HIM

HOME OR PREPARE FOR THE

CONSEQUENCES.

RIGHT NOW WE'RE MOVING

TO ANOTHER PHASE IN THIS

SAGA, WHICH INCLUDES THE

VERY CLEAR AND SAD REALITY

THAT WE MAY HAVE TO TAKE

ACTIONS THAT COULD HURT A

RELATIONSHIP THAT I WISH

WE WERE GOING ON.

Reporter: TILLIS

TRAVELLED TO TURKEY TWICE

THIS YEAR TO VISIT BRUNSON

IN PRISON AND ATTEND HIS

FIRST COURT HEARING.

HE SAYS FROM WHAT HE SAW,

THE PASTOR'S ONLY CRIME

WAS SERVING TURKEY FOR 20

YEARS AS A CHRISTIAN

MISSIONARY.

IT IS UNLIKE ANYTHING

I'D EVER SEEN IN U.S.

COURTROOMS, THE WAY THEY

CONDUCT THEMSELVES, THE

FLIMSY CIRCUMSTANTIAL

EVIDENCE.

THAT HE COULD KEEP HIS

EXPOSURE, WHEN YOU HEARD

SOME OF THE THINGS THEY'RE

USING TO CONVICT HIM FOR

335 YEARS, WAS REMARKABLE.

Reporter: 66 SENATORS

JOINED TILLIS IN SENDING A

LETTER TO TURKEY'S

PRESIDENT, ERDOGAN.

TELLING HIM THE U.S. IS

PREPARED TO ACT IF THE

TURKS REFUSE TO RELEASE

HIM.

50 EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT

MEMBERS HAVE DEMANDED HIS

RELEASE, AND A U.N. GROUP

ON ARBITRARY DETENTION

AGREED TO TAKE UP

BRUNSON'S CASE.

THE UNITED STATES HAS

BEEN VERY FORCEFUL IN

DEMANDING HIS RELEASE.

AND NOW WE LITERALLY HAVE

THE WORLD COMING TO OUR

AID AND DEMANDING PASTOR

BRUNSON'S RELEASE AS WELL.

Reporter: THE U.N.

GROUP ONLY HEARS 30 TOTAL

CASES PER YEAR.

WHILE THEY CAN'T FORCE

BRUNSON'S RELEASE, IF THEY

FIND TURKEY HAS VIOLATED

THE PASTOR'S RIGHTS, IT

PRESSURES THE COUNTRY TO

LET HIM GO.

I AM HOPEFUL THERE WILL

BE SOME POINT THAT TURKEY

DECIDES IT IS NOT

BENEFICIAL FOR THEM TO

HOLD PASTOR BRUNSON ANY

LONGER.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

U.S. LAWMAKERS ARE MOVING

FORWARD WITH SANCTIONS

AGAINST TURKEY.

BRUNSON IS JUST ONE OF

MANY AMERICANS CURRENTLY

IMPRISONED IN THE COUNTRY,

INCLUDING A NASA SCIENTIST

AND CONSULATE WORKERS.

THIS IS A SERIOUS

PROBLEM.

AND PASTOR BRUNSON IS

REALLY THE TIP OF THE

ICEBERG.

Reporter: TILLIS

WARNS AMERICANS TO STAY

AWAY.

IN MY OPINION, RIGHT

NOW, NO AMERICAN IS SAFE

TRAVELLING TO TURKEY.

Reporter: TILLIS SAYS

HE IS READY FOR A

MARATHON, AND WILL KEEP

FIGHTING UNTIL PASTOR

BRUNSON'S RELEASE.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN'S.

Efrem: MELANIA TRUMP

HAS OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED

HER ANTI-BULLY CAMPAIGN,

AND IT IS CALLED "THE

BEST."

THE GOAL IS TO ENCOURAGE

CHILDREN TO BE BEST IN

THEIR INDIVIDUAL PATHS IN

LIFE, ALONG WITH TEACHING

THEM ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE

OF SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, AND

PHYSICAL HEALTH.

IT CONCERNS ME THAT IN

TODAY'S FAST PACE, AND

EVER CONNECTED WORLD,

CHILDREN CAN BE LESS

PREPARED FOR STRESS OR TO

MANAGE THEIR EMOTIONS.

OFTENTIMES THERE IS

BULLYING, DRUG ADDICTION,

OR EVEN SUICIDE.

Efrem: "THE BEST"

WILL SUPPORT FAMILIES AND

CHILDREN AFFECTED BY THE

OPIOID CRISIS.

AND IT WILL HELP EDUCATE

PARENTS ON THE IMPORTANCE

OF HEALTHY PREGNANCIES.

> COMING UP, IT CAN

LOWER YOUR RISK OF HEART

DISEASE, REPLACE ALLERGY

MEDS, AND TASTE GREAT WITH

CRUMPETS.

WE'RE EXPLORING THE HEALTH

BENEFITS OF TEA.

Efrem: NOT MANY

SUBSTANCES ARE AS WIDELY

STUDDED AS TEA, AND THE

VERDICT IS IN.

THE BOTTOM LINE: IF

YOU'RE NOT DRINKING TEA ON

A REGULAR BASIS, YOU ARE

MISSING OUT.

LORIE JOHNSON EXPLAINS.

Lorie: WHEN IT COMES

TO OUR HEALTH, TEA PACKS A

POWERFUL PUNCH.

COMBINED STUDIES,

EXAMINING THOUSANDS OF TEA

DRINKERS, HAVE LED

SCIENTISTS TO CONCLUDE A

CONSISTENT DOSE OF TEA IS

GOOD FOR THE BODY.

MOST OF THE RESEARCH WAS

DONE IN ASIAN COUNTRIES ON

PEOPLE DRINKING HOT, GREEN

TEA.

THE AMOUNT MATTERED.

USUALLY PEOPLE ONLY SAW

HEALTH BENEFITS AFTER

DRINKING AT LEAST THREE

CUPS A DAY.

THAT'S THE DOSE THIS

CARDIOLOGIST RECOMMENDS TO

HIS PATIENTS.

BENEFITS INCLUDE LOWER

RISKS OF DIABETES, LIVER

DISEASE, AND MORE.

THE ACTIVE COMPONENT IN

GREEN TEA IS EDCG, WHICH

HELPS PREVENT CANCER.

> I LIKE ORGANIC TEA

BECAUSE YOU WANT TO MAKE

SURE IT IS GROWN IN AN

AREA FREE OF LED, CADMIUM,

MERCURY.

IF IT IS IN A BAG, YOU

DON'T WANT A BAG THAT HAS

A STAPLE ON IT.

I RATHER HAVE LOOSE.

SOMETIMES I DON'T EVEN

STRAIN IT.

I LEAVE IT IN THERE.

Lorie: RESEARCH SHOWS

GREEN TEA ALSO HELPS THE

BRAIN BY IMPROVING MEMORY,

REDUCING THE RISK OF

ALZHEIMER'S, PARKINSON'S,

AND DEPRESSION, AS WELL AS

SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER YOUR

CHANCE OF HAVING A STROKE.

LEAVE IT LONGER IN THE HOT

WATER, AND IT GETS EVEN

BETTER FOR YOU.

TEA IS MEANT TO BE

DRUNK PLAIN.

AND YOU GET THE MORE

MEDICINAL BENEFITS.

WHEN YOU ADD MILK OR

SUGAR, YOU CAN DEACTIVATE

SOME OF THE COMPONENTS.

IF THERE IS ANYTHING TO

ADD, I WOULD ADD RAW

HONEY.

WHEN PEOPLE HAVE ICED TEA,

GREEN ICED TEA, YOU LOSE A

LOT OF THE BENEFITS.

Lorie: IN ADDITION TO

THE TEAS YOU FIND AT THE

GROCERY STORE, THERE ARE

ALSO LOTS OF OTHER TEAS

TREATING SPECIFIC MEDICAL

CONNECTIONS IN LIEU OF

POPPING A PILL.

THE DOCTOR IS ALSO A

REGISTERED HERBALIST, WITH

A VAST KNOWLEDGE OF TEAS

MADE FROM VARIOUS PLANTS,

TREES, AND SHRUBS.

HIS PATIENTS OFTEN DRINK

THOSE TEAS INSTEAD OF

TAKING ALLERGY MEDICINES,

ANTACIDS, AND MORE.

THERE ARE LOTS OF TEAS

THAT HAVE ANTIBIOTIC

PRINCIPLES.

YARROW IS ONE.

I USE BERBERRY.

THESE ARE TEAS FROM

NATURAL PLANTS.

Lorie: HE POINTS OUT

MANY CONVENTIONAL

TREATMENTS ARE FROM

PLANTS.

I USE WHITE WILLOW

BARK, WHICH IS THE ACTIVE

INGREDIENT OF ASPIRIN.

SO I MIX THAT WITH A

LITTLE GINGER AND PROBABLY

SOME DEVIL'S CLAW.

Lorie: THIS WOMAN

NEEDED TO HELP WITH HER

CHRONIC FATIGUE.

I FELT WEAK AND TIRED

AND I COULDN'T GET OUT OF

BED.

I WAS ALWAYS LETHARGIC.

Lorie: THE DOCTOR

DISCOVERED A PROBLEM IN

HER INTESTINAL TRACT.

NOT ONLY IRON, BUT MY

VITAMIN "D" AND VITAMIN

"E," I WASN'T ABSORBING

ANYTHING I WAS EATING.

I EXPECTED TO BE PUT ON

MEDICATION -- I DIDN'T

KNOW.

BUT THE DOCTOR SAID IT ISS

AS SIMPLE AS A TEA

MIXTURE.

WHEN HE FIRST SAID IT, I

WAS, LIKE, HOW IS THIS TEA

GOING TO HELP ME.

Lorie: WITHIN A

MONTH, SHE FELT BETTER.

AND MY IRON IN PROBABLY

THE FIRST TIME IN 10 YEARS

IS NORMAL, AND SO IS MY

VITAMIN "D."

SO IT IS AS SIMPLE ASSAD

SEAS EASYAND ASEASY AS A TEA.

YOU MIGHT TAKE GLUTEN,

DAIRY, AND CORN OUT OF

YOUR DIET, BUT UNLESS YOU

HEAL YOUR GUT, YOU'RE

STILL GOING TO HAVE THE

SYMPTOMS.

THE TEA CONTAINS SLIPPERY

ELM, MARSHMELLOW AND MORE.

THESE ARE ALL TEAS FOR

KEEPING THE FEMALE SIDE

ACTIVE.

I GIVE THAT TO SOME OF THE

PATIENTS WHEN THEY'RE

GOING INTO MENOPAUSE, TO

EASE IN WITH A NICE,

NATURAL TEA, INSTEAD OF

TAKING A LOT OF THINGS

THAT ARE HARMFUL.

Lorie: IT IS

IMPORTANT TO KNOW THESE

TEAS CAN INTERACT WITH

CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE, SO

CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR OR

REGISTERED HERBALIST

BEFORE DRINKING THEM.

THE GROWTH OF THESE

INTERESTREATMENTS HAS LED TO A

NEW HEALTH CARE PROVIDER,

KNOWN AS A NATROPATHIC.

I THINK THERE NEEDS TO

BE MORE MARKETING TO REAL

LEASE THIS MEDICINE IS

AVAILABLE, AND YOU DON'T

HAVE TO JUMP ON A STATIN

MEDICINE, WHEN YOU MIGHT

BE ABLE TO CONTROL IT WITH

SOME DIETARY CHANGES AND

MAYBE AN HERB.

IT IS IMPORTANT, WHETHER

IT IS TEA OR HERBAL PILLS,

THAT YOU DO SEE A

NATROPATH BECAUSE YOU NEED

COORDINATION OF CARE WITH

OTHER MEDICINES AS WELL.

Lorie: THEY'RE ONLY

LICENSED IN 19 STATES,

WITH MORE ON THE WAY.

SO FOR OVER ALL BETTER

HEALTH, BEGIN OR INCREASE

YOUR DAILY DOSE OF GREEN

TEA.

RESEARCH OVERWHELMING

CONCLUDES IT IS WORTH THE

EFFORT.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: STILL

AHEAD...EIGHT YEARS AFTER

AN EARTHQUAKE DEVASTATED

HAITI, ONE MAN IS STILL ON

A MISSION TO HELP A NATION

REBUILD, BUT FIRST HE HAS

TO TEACH THEM HOW TO

BUILD.

THAT STORY IS NEXT.

Efrem: DISASTER AND

ECONOMIC HARDSHIP KEEP

HAITI AT THE BOTTOM OF THE

COUNTRIES IN THE WEST.

YET HOPE STILL REMAINS ON

THE I'LL NATION.

ERIK ROSALES SHOWS US ONE

MAN WHO IS WORKING TO

BRING THE GOSPEL TO HAITI

AND TO EMPOWER ITS PEOPLE.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN

MORE THAN EIGHT YEARS

SINCE THE COUNTRY OF HAITI

WAS HIT BY A 7.0 MONTHS

AGO TUD EARTHQUAKE.

AND DESPITE BILLIONS IN

HUMANITARIAN AID,

CORRUPTION HAS FORCED MUCH

OF THE COUNTRY TO CONTINUE

TO LIVE IN DEPLORABLE

CONDITIONS.

AND WHILE ORGANIZATIONS

WORK TO HELP, THEY HAVEN'T

PROVIDED SOLUTIONS TO

REDUCE HAITI'S DEPENDENCY

ON FOREIGN AID.

ONE MAN'S HOPE TO CHANGE

THAT BY BUILDING BUILDERS.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

DIFFICULT, FRUSTRATING,

REWARDING THINGS I'VE EVER

DONE.

AND I THINK FOR ME,

BECAUSE OF MY PERSONALITY,

THE FRUSTRATION IS I WANT

THINGS TO MOVE FASTER AND

STUFF, AND I LOVE BUILDING

THINGS.

BUT WE HAVE TO INVEST IN

THE PEOPLE FIRST.

Reporter: SHERMAN, A

COMMERCIAL CONTRACTOR,

FIRST CAME HERE MONTHS

AFTER THE MASSIVE QUAKE,

AS PART OF THE MISSION BY

CORNERSTONE FELLOWSHIP

CHURCH IN CALIFORNIA.

HE AND HIS WIFE, CHERYL,

WERE STRUCK BY HOW POOR

CONSTRUCTION STANDARDS

CONTRIBUTED TO SO MUCH OF

THE DEVASTATION.

MY HUSBAND BEING A

BUILDER, WE THOUGHT, BETS LET'S

GO HELP REBUILD.

BUT IT BECAME EVIDENT THAT

MANY DIDN'T HAVE HOPE IN

THEIR DAILY LIVES, SO WHY

NOT STEIFF THE TEACH THEM HOW TO

BUILD PROPERLY.

Reporter: THAT

DESIRE,-ALON, ALONG WITH THEIR

CHURCH, HELPED THEM BUILD

SEVERAL ORPHANAGES.

WE HAVE TO IN INVEST IN

THE WORKERS AND BUILD A

CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY.

WE USE THE APPRENTICESHIP

APPROACH, BY LEARNING AND

EARNING AT THE SAME TIME.

I'D BEEN LOOKING FOR

JOBS, BUT I DIDN'T HAVE

ANY SKILL.

Reporter: AS PART OF

THE ORPHANAGE CONSTRUCTION

CREW, THIS MAN LEARNED

BASIC MASONRY AND PLUMBING

SKILLS.

THE COUPLE IS QUICK TO

ADD, THIS ISN'T JUST ABOUT

EARNING A TRADE, BUT IT IS

ALSO LEARNING ABOUT GOD

AND LIVING A LIFE LIKE

JESUS.

PART OF THE TRAINING

INCLUDES LEADERSHIP

CLASSES FOR THE HAITIAN

APPRENTICES.

THE PASTOR TALKED ABOUT

LIVING A LIFE OF INTEGRITY

AND RESPECT.

WE THEN TRAVELLED TO ONE

OF THE ORPHANAGES.

AFTER A QUICK FLIGHT TO A

SMALL ISLAND ABOUT

50 MILES FROM

PORT-AU-PRINCE, AND A

WHITE-KNUCKLE LANDING ON A

DIRT RUNWAY, WE SAW THE

JESUS HOME FOR CHILDREN

VILLAGE PROVIDING A NEW

LIFE FOR MORE THAN 150

ORPHANS.

EXTOLLO HAS BUILT A

BEAUTIFUL VILLAGE FOR THE

KIDS.

IT IS MORE THAN I COULD

ASK FOR.

GOD HAS ANSWERED OUR

PRAYERS.

Reporter: WE'RE

INSIDE THE ORPHANAGE, AND

YOU CAN SEE THIS THE

PATIO, WHERE THE KIDS HAVE

THEIR SUNDAY SERVICE.

AND AROUND THE COURTYARD

ARE 10 HOMES.

AND THEY DON'T WANT TO

MAKE THIS AN INSTITUTION.

SHE WANTS TO HAVE THE KIDS

INTERACT WITH THEIR HOME

MOM AND WITH EACH OTHER,

AND THIS WAY THEY GROW IN

SPIRIT.

YOU MAY NOT REALIZE IT,

BUT MORE THAN HALF OF THE

PEOPLE HERE LIVE ON LESS

THAN $2 A DAY.

SOME 70% ARE UNDEREMPLOYED

OR SIMPLY HAVE NO JOB.

MOST CAN'T AFFORD EVEN

BASIC HOUSING, SO MANY

PARENTS GIVE UP THEIR

KIDS.

SHE ALWAYS SAYS, I WANT

TO RAISE THESE KIDS UP TO

LOVE THE LORD AND BE --

NOT ADOPT THEM OUT OF THE

COUNTRY, BUT BE THE CHANGE

IN OUR COUNTRY, TO BE THE

LEADERS AND THE PEOPLE

THAT THIS COUNTRY NEEDS,

THE NEXT GENERATION TO

CHANGE THINGS AROUND.

Reporter: LEADERS,

LIKE JOHN, WHO IS

REBUILDING HIS OWN HOME

AND HELPING TO BUILD FOR

OTHERS, ALONG WITH HIS

FAMILY.

WHEN WE MEET EVERY

MORNING, PEOPLE START TO

PRAY, TALKING ABOUT GOD.

Reporter: MORE

IMPORTANTLY, HE HAS

ACCEPTED THE LORD LORD AND NOW

LEADS BIBLE CLASSES.

HIS DREAM IS HAVE HIS OWN

PRODUCTION COUNTRY, AND TO

HELP AND PROVIDE A FUTURE

LIVING FOR OTHERS.

WE, IN TURN, WANT TO BE

A BLESSING TO THE

WONDERFUL PEOPLE OF HAITI,

AND THEY'RE SO

APPRECIATIVE.

IT IS SO FUN.

Reporter: JUST AS

JESUS BUILT DISCIPLES,

EXTOLLO OFFICIALS ARE

BUILDING THE NEXT

GENERATION OF CHRISTIAN

LEADERS TO BRING POSITIVE

CHANGE TO THE COUNTRY OF

HAITI.

ERIK ROSALES, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: GREAT WORK

BEING DONE.

THERE IS MUCH MORE OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH" COMING UP, AND

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Efrem: IN A REGION

WHERE .02% OF PEOPLE ARE

BORN AGAIN, SPREADING THE

GOSPEL CAN BE EXTREMELY

DOUBT.

OR MIRANDA LEE IS IN THE

SOUTHERN PART OF ROMANIA

WITH MU ONE MINISTRY THAT IS

CHANGING THAT.

SHE IS ON AN 11-MONTH

TRIP.

IT IS KNOWN AS THE

GRAVEYARD FOR

MISSIONARIES, IN FACT,

EVEN THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT

HAS WORKED TO CHASE

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS

AWAY FROM HERE.

BUT DESPITE THE

OPPOSITION, AND EVEN

SOMETIMES PHYSICAL

VIOLENCE, ONE CHURCH

PERSEVERES.

PEOPLE REJECT THE

GOSPEL.

AND IT WAS SO INTENSE,

THAT ALMOST EVERY DAY WE

WERE CALLED INTO THE

POLICE STATION.

AND EVEN THE LOCAL

RELIGIOUS PEOPLE, THEY

SAID TO US WE SHOULD LEAVE

THIS TOWN, WE SHOULD LEAVE

THIS PLACE.

Reporter: HE IS THE

FOUNDING PASTOR OF HOPE

CHURCH FOR ROMANIA, A

MINISTRY WITH NEARLY 20

CHURCH PLANTS AND NEARLY A

DOZEN OUTREACH PROGRAMS.

AS A BODY, THE CHURCH IS

NOW REACHING HUNDREDS OF

PEOPLE.

THE GOSPEL IS SPREADING

IN VILLAGE AFTER VILLAGE.

THE LORD RESTORED HIS

GLORY IN HIS AREA THAT IS

CALLED A GRAVEYARD FOR

MISSIONARIES AND PASTORS.

Reporter: THE CHURCH

IS MAKING A LIFE-CHANGING

DIFFERENCE IN PEOPLE LIKE

ELLIE, WHO LOST BOTH HER

PARENTS AS A CHILD.

THE PEOPLE THAT I MET

WHEN I WAS A CHILD WERE

FROM HOPE CHURCH.

THEY SHOWED ME THE LOVE OF

GOD.

AND THROUGH THEM I SAW

THAT I'M IMPORTANT, THAT

I'M SPECIAL.

Reporter: HOPE CHURCH

ALSO HAS A HEART FOR

ROMANIA'S LARGE POPULATION

OF ROMA, OR DISTANT

PEOPLE.

THEY ARE A PEOPLE THAT

IS REJECTED BY SOCIETY,

SADLY.

AND, YEAH, THEIR NEEDS ARE

DEFINITELY MORE THAN JUST

SPIRITUAL.

THERE ARE PHYSICAL NEEDS

AS WELL.

Reporter: HOPE CHURCH

IS WORKING ON STARTING

ANOTHER MISSION BASE IN

THE AREA SO MORE PEOPLE

CAN BE A PART OF THE

MOVEMENT IN THIS REGION.

IN ROMANIA, MIRANDA LEE,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: YOU CAN FIND

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT

HOPE CHURCH ON OUR

WEBSITE.

> RIGHT NOW IT IS TIME

FOR YOUR TUESDAY

TWEETABLE.

I PRAY THIS WILL ENCOURAGE

YOU AND MOVE YOU TO POST,

TAG, TWEET AND SHARE WITH

OTHERS.

IF YOU'RE VISION AND

DREAMS ARE THINGS YOU CAN

ACHIEVE IN YOUR OWN

STRENGTH, THINK BIGGER.

GOD'S VISION FOR YOUR LIFE

IS BEYOND YOUR WILDEST

DREAMS.

SO MOVE FORWARD AND WAIT

ON HIM TO MAKE THAT A

REALITY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

WATCHING TODAY.

WE'LL SEE YOU RIGHT BACK

HERE TOMORROW.

GOOD-BYE AND GOD BLESS

YOU.
