Announcer: THIS IS

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

George: HELLO,

EVERYONE.

THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN "NEWSWATCH"MEN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M GEORGE THOMAS.

ON THE BIG ISLAND OF

HAWAII, 19 LAVA OUTBREAKS,

A JUNGLE ON FIRE,

EVACUATIONS, AND THE WORST

COULD BE AHEAD.

DALE HURD HAS THIS STORY.

Reporter: THE GROUND

ON HAWAII'S BIG ISLAND

CONTINUES TO CRACK OPEN,

SPEWING 2,000 DEGREE LAVA,

AND NOW THE VOLCANO ITSELF

APPEARS READY TO EXPLODE.

ONE THE NEWEST FISHERS IS

SHOOTING OF GEOLOGISTS

CALLED SPLATTER BOMBS.

THE ERUPTIONS, WHICH SOUND

LIKE THUNDER COLLAPSE, ARE

DEAFENING.

I HEARD WHAT SOUNDED

LIKE A JET TE TURBINE.

Reporter: 19 FISHERS

HAVE OPENED SINCE EARLY

MAY, AND FRESH ERUPTIONS

HAVE FORCED NEW

EVACUATIONS.

2,000 HAVE BEEN EVACUATED

FROM THEIR HOMES.

AND FIREARMS WARN

THOUSANDS MORE COULD BE

ORDERED TO LEAVE.

WE WOULD LIKE THEM TO

BE READY AND BE PREPARED

TO EVACUATE AT A MOMENTS

NOTICE.

Reporter: RESIDENTS

ARE LINING UP FOR

RESPIRATORS.

NOT EVERYBODY CAN JUST

GET ON A PLANE AND LEAVE.

THE REST OF US ARE HERE.

Reporter: IT IS

KILLING OFF TREES AND

GRASSES LEFT UNTOUCHED BY

THE LAVA.

ALL EYES ARE ON THIS

CRATER, WHERE A LAVA LAKE

HAS COLLAPSED MORE THAN

1,000 FEET.

IT IS POWERFUL ENOUGH TO

SEND ROCKS THE SIZE OF A

HALF MILE OR MORE IN THE

AIR.

IT IS NOT LIKE A

HURRICANE, WHERE YOU

THINK, IN THREE DAYS IT

WILL BE HERE AND GO.

THIS IS ALMOST LIKE A

SLOW-MOTION TRAIN WRECK.

Reporter: THE UNITED

STATES GEOLOGICALLY SURVEY

WARNS THERE ARE 169 ACTIVE

VOLCANOS ACROSS THE

STATES, AND ABOUT 50 IN

SIX STATES ARE BEING

WATCHED CLOSELY.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

George: HERE IS A

LOOK AT SOME OF THE OTHER

BIG HEADLINES WE'RE

FOLLOWING IN THE CBN

NEWSROOM...

I THINK IT IS DOUBLE

THE VALUE OF THE

PROFESSIONAL SPORTS

FRANCHISES IN A SECOND.

George: THE SUPREME

COURT IS USHERING A NEW

ERA OF SPORTS BETTING.

STATES NOW HAVE THE GO

AHEAD TO ALLOW SPORTS

GAMBLING ACROSS THE

NATION.

THE SUPREME COURT STRUCK

DOWN A FEDERAL LAW IN 1992

THAT BANNEDE BANNED THE PRACTICE

IN MOST STATES.

> NORTH KOREA IS MOVING

AHEAD WITH PLANS TO CLOSE

ITS NUCLEAR TEST SITES

THIS WEEK.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO SOUTH

KOREA'S MILITARY.

THE MOVE COMES AHEAD OF AN

HISTORIC SUMMIT BETWEEN

KIM JONG-UN AND PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

> MEANWHILE, IN

INDONESIA, POLICE SAY A

FAMILY BROUGHT ITS

7-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER TO A

SUICIDE BOMB ATTACK ON A

POLICE STATION ON MONDAY.

THAT'S A DAY AFTER MEMBERS

OF ANOTHER FAMILY

COORDINATED SUICIDE

ATTACKS ON THREE CHURCHES

THAT KILLED 12 PEOPLE.

SIX CIVILIANS AND FOUR

OFFICERS WERE WOUNDED.

THE LITTLE GIRL SURVIVED.

> YOU CAN FIND THESE AND

OTHER STORIES AT

cbnnews.com.

> 70 YEARS TO THE DAY,

AND NEARLY THE SAME HOUR

AS WHEN PRESIDENT HARRY S.

TRUMAN RECOGNIZED ISRAEL

AS A NATION ON MAY 14th,

1948.

THAT'S WHEN THE UNITED

STATES OPENED UP ITS

EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

MANY PEOPLE THE DAY WAS

HISTORY IN THE MAKING.

Chris: TREASURY

SECRETARY STEPHEN STEVE MNUNCHIN

UNVEILED THE NEW EMBASSY.

ON BEHALF OF THE 45

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES, WE WELCOME YOU

OFFICIALLY, AND FOR THE

FIRST TIME, TO THE EMBASSY

OF THE UNITED STATES HERE

IN JERUSALEM, THE CAPITAL

OF ISRAEL.

Chris: IN A VIDEO,

HER FATHER, PRESIDENT

TRUMP, SAID HIS DECISION

ACKNOWLEDGED REALITY.

ISRAEL IS A SOVEREIGN

NATION, WITH THE RIGHT OF

SOVEREIGN NATIONS, TO

DETERMINE ITS CAPITAL.

BUT WE HAVE FAILED TO

RECOGNIZE THE PLAIN

REALITY, THAT ISRAEL'S

CAPITAL IS JERUSALEM.

Chris: BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU CALLED IT

HISTORIC.

WHAT A GLORIOUS DAY.

REMEMBER THIS MOMENT.

[APPLAUSE]

PRESIDENT TRUMP, BY

RECOGNIZING HISTORY, YOU

HAVE MADE HISTORY.

Chris: AMBASSADOR

DAVID FRIEDMAN HOSTED THE

EVENT AND TOLD CBN NEWS

HOW HE FELT ABOUT THE

HISTORIC DAY.

WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR

THIS FOR 25 YEARS.

THANK GOD IT CAME.

IT WAS JUST AN INCREDIBLE

MOMENT, ONE THAT WILL

PROBABLY TAKE ME WEEKS FOR

ME TO PROCESS ALL MY

EMOTIONS.

Chris: AFTER NEARLY

23 YEARS, THE JERUSALEM

EMBASSY ACT HAS BEEN FILL

FULFILLED.

BUT SOME SAY IT IS NOT

JUST HISTORY IN THE

MAKING, BUT ALSO PROPHECY

IN ACTION.

WE'RE SEEING PROPHECY

UNFOLD.

I DON'T KNOW WHEN THE LORD

IS COMING BACK, BUT I KNOW

TODAY IT GOT A LITTLE BIT

CLOSER.

THIS IS ALSO A

PROPHETIC MOMENT BECAUSE

GOD PROMISED ISRAEL, IN

THE BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY,

CONCERNING THE NATIONS, I

WILL MAKE YOU THE HEAD AND

NOT THE TAIL.

Chris: OTHER OTHERS SAW IT

AS ISRAEL TAKING ITS PLACE

AMONG THE NATIONS.

ONE OF THE MOST VISIBLE

MANIFESTATIONS OF THE

DOUBLE STANDARD IT IS THE

ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD

NOT ALLOWED TO ANNOUNCE

ITS OWN CAPITAL.

I HOPE WE SEE THE

BEGINNING OF THE END OF

THAT.

FOR THE ISRAELI PEOPLE,

THEY WILL BE TREATED LIKE

FIRST-CLASS CITIZENS OF

THE WORLD.

AND IT TELLS THE

ISRAELI ENEMIES, THIS IS

OUR CAPITAL.

NOW DEAL WITH IT.

Chris: MEANWHILE,

THOUSANDS OF PALESTINIANS

RALLIED ACROSS THE BORDER

TO MARK WHAT THEY CALL THE

NAKBA.

DURING THE RIOTS, GAZAN

OFFICIALS SAID MORE THAN

50 WERE WOUNDED.

AND THEY DROPPED THOUSANDS

OF LEAFLETS, WARNING

PROTESTORS TO STAY AWAY

FROM THE BORDER, AND

BLAMED THE HAMAS TERROR

GROUP TO STAY AWAY FROM

THE BORDER.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO

D.V.D. OUDEFEND OUR CIVILIANS AND

OUR BORDER, AND WE WILL

NOT LET THE RIOTERSS

THROUGH AND TO HARM

ISRAELI CITIZENS, WHO ARE

A RUNNING DISTANCE AWAY.

Chris: ISRAEL SAID

CAPTURED PALESTINIANS TOLD

THIM HAMAS ENCOURAGES THEM

TO SEND CHILDREN ACROSS

THE FENCE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

AT THE NEW U.S. EMBASSY,

JERUSALEM.

George: THANK YOU,

CHRIS.

> VICE PRESIDENT MIKE

PENCE CELEBRATED ISRAEL'S

70t70th ANSWER ANNIVERSARY

STATESIDE.

IT IS THERE HE PRAYED FOR

THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.

THE ANNIVERSARY COINCIDED

WITH THE COMMEMORATION OF

THE U.S. EMBASSY OPENING

IN JERUSALEM.

ONE UNALTERNATEABLY

TRUTH STANDS AT EVIDENCE

AT THIS GATHERING AND ALL

ACROSS THE WORLD.

AS IT HAS BEEN IN THE

PAST, SO IT SHALL BE IN

THE FUTURE: AMERICA

STANDS WITH ISRAEL.

[APPLAUSE]

George: PENCE ALSO

HONORED PRESIDENT TRUMP

FOR STRENGTHENING TIES

BETWEEN THE U.S. AND

ISRAEL.

> FIRST LADY MELANIA

TRUMP IS RECOVERING AT A

WALTER REED MEDICAL CENTER

AFTER BEING TREATED FOR A

BENIGN KIDNEY CONDITION.

DOCTORS PERFORMED A

PROCEDURE TO PLUG A BLOOD

VESSELS TO STOP BLEEDING.

PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS SEEN

BOARDING MARINE ONE,

HEADING TO VISIT HER.

THE PRESIDENT WASN'T BY

HIS WIFE'S SIDE, BUT HE

SPOKE WITH HER BEFOREHAND

AND WITH HER DOCTORS

IMMEDIATELY AFTER.

THE FIRST LADY IS EXPECTED

TO BE HOSPITALIZED THE

REST OF THE WEEK.

> COMING UP, THEY'RE

COMING FROM ALL OVER THE

WORLD TO A PLACE MANY HAVE

NEVER BEEN.

SEE WHY THESE PEOPLE ARE

FLOCKING TO ISRAEL.

George: AND WELCOME

BACK TO CBN "NEWSWATCH."

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE, BUT

THERE WERE ONLY ABOUT

600,000 JEWS LIVING IN

PALESTINE WHEN ISRAEL

BECAME A NATION BACK IN

1948.

THE NEW COUNTRY NEEDED

CITIZENS IN ORDER TO

SURVIVE AND GROW, BUT

WHERE WOULD THEY COME

FROM?

CBN'S SCOTT ROSS TAKES A

LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED THEN

AND WHAT'S STILL GOING ON

TODAY.

Scott: THEY COME FROM

ALL OVER THE WORLD, TO A

PLACE MANY HAVE NEVER

BEEN.

YET THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE

LONGED TO RETURN TO THIS

LAND FOR THOUSANDS OF

YEARS.

I'M SARA FROM FRANCE.

I'M FROM URUGUAY.

I'M HERE BECAUSE I LOVE

ISRAEL.

HI.

MY NAME IS DEBBIE.

I'M FROM CORDAVO,

ARGENTINA.

I'M FROM RUSSIA.

I'M FROM BROOKLYN, NEW

YORK.

AND I MADE ALIYAH ON

DECEMBER.

I'M A LAWYER IN NEW YORK,

AND I'M HERE BECAUSE IT IS

THE ONLY JEWISH STATE

THERE IS.

Scott: IT IS CALLED,

ALIYAH, LITERALLY GOING

UP.

THE TERM DESCRIBES WHEN

PEOPLE WENT UP TO

JERUSALEM TO WORSHIP AT

THE TEMPLE.

NOW IT MEANS IMMIGRATING,

OR RETURNING, TO ISRAEL.

YOU'RE AN AMERICAN?

YUP.

Scott: WHY DID YOU

COME?

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL

COUNTRY.

I LOVE IT HERE.

Scott: ARIZONA IS

BEAUTIFUL?

ARIZONA IS BEAUTIFUL,

BUT IT IS NOT REQUIRE.

Scott: LAST YES,

27,000 JEWISH PEOPLE

ARRIVED IN ISRAEL,

INCLUDING 3600 FROM THE

UNITED STATES.

WE WERE PRAYING FOR

JERUSALEM.

AND IT CONTINUES EVERY

DAY.

Scott: I SPOKE WITH

THE LEADER OF THE JEWISH

AGENCY WHICH OVERSEAS

BRINGING THE JEWISH PEOPLE

HOME.

I AM VERY PROUD TO BE

THTHE HEAD OF AN

ORGANIZATION WHICH BROUGHT

3.5 MILLION JEWS TO

ISRAEL.

Scott: SHARANSKY MADE

HEADLINES IN THE '80s AS

A PRISONER IN THE SOVIET

UNION.

INTERNATIONAL PRESSURE LED

TO HIS RELEASE, AND HE

IMMIGRATED TO ISRAEL IN

1986.

I MEET WITH LOTS OF

IMMIGRANTS, AND I LOVE TO

BE AT THE AIRPORT AND SEE

THEM GOING DOWN FROM THE

AIRPLANE.

BECAUSE AFTER EACH OF

THESE PEOPLE, THERE ARE AT

LEAST 50 GENERATIONS OF

JEWS WHO WERE PRAYING AND

DREAMING ABOUT COMING TO

JERUSALEM.

EACH OF THEM HAVE FORMED A

HUGE CIRCLE, A THOUSAND

YEARS OF EXILE.

Scott: ISAIAH,

JEREMIAH, AND EZEKIEL ALL

SPOKE OF A TIME WHEN GOD

WOULD BRING T

PEOPLE BACK TO THE LAND OF

ISRAEL.

THE PROPHET AMOS SAYS THEY

WILL NEVER BE DISBURSED

AGAIN.

ALTHOUGH THEY'RE PART OF A

PROPHETIC AND EXCITING

JOURNEY, IMMIGRANTS FACE A

WHOLE NEW WORLD WHEN THEY

ARRIVE.

SOME OF THE PEOPLE LEFT

EVERYTHING, LEFT THE

FRIENDS, LEFT THE

FAMILIES, LEFT THE FOOD,

THE SMELL, THE JOBS, AND

THEY'RE COMING HERE TO

START A NEW LIFE.

Scott: THAT'S WHY THE

STATE WORKS TO CREATE A

SMOOTH TRANSITION.

ZEBRA LEADS AN ABSORPTION

CENTER IN JERUSALEM.

NEW IMMIGRANTS LEAVE HERE

FREE FOR FIVE MONTHS, SO

THEY CAN FOCUS ON LEARNING

HEBREW AND LIVING IN

ISRAEL.

WE CALL IT THE FIRST

HOME IN THE HOMELAND.

THEY COME HERE AND THEY

HAVE, LIKE, A SOFT

LANDING.

THEY DON'T NEED TO BE

AFRAID OF THINGS.

WE HELP THEM TO BE PART OF

ISRAEL, BUT STEP BY STEP.

Scott: HOW IMPORTANT

IS IT THAT THEY LEARN

HEBREW?

THE MAIN REASON THE

PEOPLE ARE HERE, IN THIS

ABSORPTION CENTER, IS TO

GET TO KNOW THE LANGUAGE.

HEBREW IS THE KEY TO THE

ISRAELI SOCIETY.

IF YOU WANT TO BE THE

LEADER OF THIS BEAUTIFUL

COUNTRY, YOU NEED TO KNOW

THE LANGUAGE.

Scott: UPON ETLION IS

MAINLY FOR CITIZENS WHO

HAVE A DEGREE.

THERE ARE CONFLICTS

BETWEEN THEM -- ARE THERE

CONFLICTS ADJUSTING TO ONE

ANOTHER?

YES.

THE COUNTRIES ARE

DIFFERENT, THE LANGUAGES

ARE DIFFERENT.

SO TO PUT TOGETHER 250

YOUNG ADULTS IN ONE PLACE,

YOU CAN MANAGE IT HERE,

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

BECOMING FRIENDS FOR LIFE.

THE FIRST YEAR AND THE

SECOND YEAR ARE THE

HARDEST ONES.

IF YOU SURVIVE THE TWO

YEARS, PEOPLE ARE STAYING

IN ISRAEL.

THIS IS GOING TO BE THEIR

HOME.

Scott: I SPOKE WITH

SOME OF THE STUDENTS ABOUT

THEIR EXPERIENCES.

IT IS THE LAND OF THE

JEWISH PEOPLE.

AND THAT IS WHY I AM HERE.

I WANTED TO INTENTIONALLY

COME HOME AND TO BE WITH

MY FELLOW JEWS, AND TO

FIND A JEWISH HUSBAND.

Scott: WHY DID YOU

COME?

I CAME TO ISRAEL

BECAUSE I FEEL THIS IS THE

HOMELAND TO THE JEWISH

PEOPLE.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

2,000 YEARS WE HAVE OUR

OWN HOMELAND, AND THAT IS

VERY EXCITING TO BE A PART

OF.

Scott: WHAT KIND OF

WORK WOULD YOU LIKE TO GET

INTO?

I STUDIED ACCOUNTING

AND FINANCES, SO HOPEFULLY

SOMETHING IN THAT AREA.

Scott: DO YOU HOPE TO

GET MARRIED?

YES, OF COURSE.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF

BEAUTIFUL JEWISH GIRLS.

Scott: I ASKE ASKED

SHARANSKY THOUGHT ALL OF

THE JEWISH PEOPLE NEED TO

COME HOME.

THE PROPHETS SPOKE OF

THE GATHERING OF THE

JEWISH PEOPLE IN THE LAND

OF ISRAEL.

I WANT TO HELP WITH THIS,

BUT NOT BY GIVING ORDERS

OR PUSHING THEM OR SHAMING

THEM, BUT SIMPLY BY GIVING

THEM THE FEELING OF HOW

GOOD IT IS.

Scott: SCOTT ROSS FOR

CBN IN JERUSALEM.

George: BY THE WAY,

THIS YEAR'S BIRTHDAY IS

ISRAEL'S 70th BIRTHDAY,

AND ISRAEL HAS PRODUCED

"TO LIFE: HOW ISRAELI

VOLUNTEERS ARE CHANGING

THE WORLD."

> UP NEXT, WE'LL HEAR

FROM A CELEBRITY COUPLE.

FOR 30 YEARS, DAVID AND

KAMALA SHARE THE SECRETS

TO A LASTING MARRIAGE.

George: AND WELCOME

BACK TO CBN "NEWSWATCH."

DAVID AND KAMALA ARE

CELEBRATING 30 YEARS AND

ARE WRITING A BOOK ABOUT

IT CALLED, "US AGAINST THE

WORLD."

CBN'S EFREM GRAHA EF SAT EFREM GRAHAM SAT

DOWN WITH THEM FOR A

"STUDIO 5" INTERVIEW ABOUT

THEIR MARRIAGE, THEIR

FAMILY, THEIR CAREERS, AND

THE SECRET TO THEIR

SUCCESS.

* AS TIME GOES BY, IT'S

HARD TO STAY WHEN THERE IS

NO FOOD TO EAT *

Efrem: KAMALA'S VOICE

HAS EARNED HER GRAMMY

GOLD.

BUT SHE ALSO GRACES

MAGAZINE COVERS FOR HER

LONG TIME MARRIAGE TO

FELLOW SINGER AND ACTOR

DAVID MANN.

I LOVE PHOTO SHOOTS,

ESPECIALLY FOR A MAGAZINE

LIKE "UP SCALE," THAT IS

SO FAMILY-FRIENDLY.

ARE YOU SURE THEY'VE

GOT THE RIGHT FAMILY.

Efrem: THEY SHARED

THEIR LIFE ON THE HIT

REALITY SERIES, "THE

MANNS."

> TAKE US BACK TO THE

VERY BEGINNING.

WHEN DID YOU MEET?

HOW OLD WERE YOU?

WHAT HAPPENED?

WHEN WE FIRST MET, WE

WERE 18.

ACTUALLY, MY BEST FRIEND

INTRODUCED US.

WE WERE BEST FRIENDS FROM

CHURCH AND WE GREW UP

TOGETHER.

AND THEN SHE WENT TO HIGH

SCHOOL WITH DAVID.

LET ME JUST ADD, AT THE

TIME, WE WERE A PRETTY BIG

DEAL ON CAMPUS.

THERE WERE SOME GUYS

WHO SING.

AND MY BEST FRIEND WAS,

Y'ALL SING REAL GOOD, BUT

I HAVE A FRIEND WHO CAN

OUTSING YOU GUYS.

AND THE LADIES WOULD

JUST SAY, AHH!

AND NICOLE WAS, LIKE,

Y'ALL SING PRETTY GOOD, SO

LET'S SEE.

AND SHE BROUGHT HER TO

SING AND IT JUST BLEW US

AWAY.

AND I CAN'T EVEN

REMEMBER WHAT I SANG.

AND THAT DEVELOPED INTO

A FRIENDSHIP.

STRICTLY FRIENDS.

THERE WAS NO -- I --

YOU WERE ABOUT TO SAY,

NO HANKY-PANKY.

AND WE WERE STRICTLY

FRIENDS.

AND THAT IS WHAT OUR WHOLE

RELATIONSHIP IS BASED ON.

Efrem: THE MANNS HAVE

COME AWAY SINCE THOSE

EARLY YEARS.

AND THEY'RE CELEBRATING,

WRITING THEIR FIRST BOOK,

"US AGAINST THE WORLD:

OUR SECRETS TO LOVE,

MARRIAGE, AND FAMILY."

Efrem: SO YOU DECIDE

TO WRITE A BOOK AFTER 30

YEARS OF MARRIAGE.

WHAT IS IT THAT HAPPENED

THAT INSPIRED YOU TO DO

IT?

I THINK WHAT HAPPENED

IS WE KEPT GETTING A LOT

OF PEOPLE COMING TO US FOR

ADVICE.

AND WITH BEING MARRIED --

WE KIND OF STARTED OUT

EARLY BECAUSE WE ARE

PEOPLE PEOPLE.

WE LOVE PEOPLE, AND PEOPLE

ARE ALWAYS AROUND US.

THAT MOTIVATED US, BUT WE

KEPT PUSHING IT OFF.

BUT THE LORD KEPT PRESSING

ME.

I TOLD DAVID, IT IS

SOMETHING WE NEED TO DO TO

ENCOURAGE FAMILIES.

AND WE'RE A SUPER BLENDED

FAMILY.

SO WE WANTED TO SHARE SOME

OF OUR STORIES AND

EXPERIENCES WITH OTHERS,

TO KIND OF HELP THEM WITH

THEIR DAY-TO-DAY LIFE.

WE SAT DOWN AND SAID,

LOOK, WE'VE GOT TO PUT

THIS BOOK TOGETHER.

SO HERE WE ARE, "US

AGAINST THE WORLD: OUR

SECRETS TO LOVE, MARRIAGE,

AND FAMILY."

Efrem: HOW WOULD YOU

YOU SAY YOU MASTERED THE

SECRETS?

WAS IT TRIAL AND ERROR?

I WOULD SAY TRIAL AND

ERROR.

IT IS JUST LIKE A JOB.

YOU HAVE TO WORK AT IT.

MARRIAGE, YOU HAVE TO WORK

AT IT, THE RELATIONSHIP.

DIVORCE WAS NOT AN OPTION

FOR US.

WE TOOK THAT OFF THE

TABLE.

WHATEVER CAME, WE DECIDED

WE WERE GOING TO WORK

THROUGH IT.

IT IS A WORK IN

PROGRESS.

WE HAVEN'T DISCOVERED THE

MASTER SECRET TO ALL OF

THIS.

WHAT WE TELL EVERYBODY IS,

WE DON'T HAVE A PERFECT

MARRIAGE.

WHAT WE HAVE IS A MARRIAGE

THAT IS A WORK IN

PROGRESS.

WE'RE NOT TRYING TO

PAINT A PERFECT PICTURE

HERE.

THERE IS NO PERFECT

COUPLE.

BECAUSE EVERYBODY HAS

DISAGREEMENTS.

WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT SOME

DISAGREEMENTS AND JUST HOW

WE HANDLE SOME OF THE

DISAGREEMENTS THAT WE

HAVE.

AND WE DO TALK ABOUT

SOME OF OUR LOWS, BUT WE

TALK ABOUT A LOT OF OUR

HIGHS.

AND WE SHARE A LITTLE BIT

OF MY PRACTICAL JOKESTER.

I CALL IT "MY PRACTICE

JOKESTER."

WHICH HE HAS HAD A LOT

OF PRACTICE.

Efrem: YOU GUYS WORK

TOGETHER, FROM "MEET THE

BROWNS," TO "KIRK

FRANKFURKIRK FRANKLINAND THE FAMILY."

I'M LEROY BROWN.

MY FRIENDS CALL ME LEROY

BROWN.

THAT WAS ALWAYS MY

PRAYER, THAT I WOULD HAVE

SOMEONE THAT DID THE SAME

THINGS THAT I DID.

SO I WANTED SOMEONE WHO

SANG AND WHO WAS

INTERESTED IN CHURCH AND

MUSIC BECAUSE THAT'S MY

LOVE.

MY FIRST LOVE IS SINGING,

MY PASSION.

AND THE LORD BLESSED ME

WITH SOMEONE WHO LOVES

WHAT I LOVE.

SO WE'VE REALLY BUILT, YOU

KNOW, TOGETHER.

AND THEN IT WENT FROM THE

SINGING TO THE ACTING,

WHICH THE ACTING IS WHAT

HE LOVES.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ASK,

WHAT -- HOW DO YOU JUGGLE

THIS?

HOW DO YOU YO GIVE IT QUAL EQUAL

AND BALANCE.

I SAID, I NEVER GIVE MY

MARRIAGE THE SAME WEIGHT

AND BALANCE.

I NEVER TRY TO BALANCE IT

WITH ANYTHING ELSE.

IT FAR OUTWEIGHS ANYTHING

ELSE I DO, WHETHER IT

COMES TO WORK, THE CAREER,

THE KIDS, ANYTHING.

THIS IS MY FIRST MINISTRY.

I NEVER TRY TO BALANCE

ANYTHING AGAINST HER.

I TELL PEOPLE, LOOK, IF

THIS BUSINESS EVER GETS IN

THE WAY OF THIS, WE'LL

DISAPPEAR.

IT IS THE LORD FIRST,

AND THEN HIM.

AND THAT'S WHY WE CAME

UP WITH THE TITLE, "US

AGAINST THE WORLD,"

BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE

DAY, IT IS GOING TO BE US.

THE KIDS ARE GONE, WE'RE

EMPTY NESTORS, AND GUESS

WHO IS LEFT?

US.

AND WE'RE HAVING FUN.

Efrem: JUST ONE OF

MANY FAMILY LESSONS THE

MANNS ARE OPENING UP TO

SHARE.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS,

DALLAS, TEXAS.

George: ALL RIGHT.

FOLKS, WE'LL BE BACK RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

George: A YOUNG GIRL

FROM LOUISIANA IS

TRAVELLING ACROSS THE

COUNTRY HUGGING POLICE

OFFICERS.

SHE SAYS GOD HAS SENT HER

ON A MISSION OF LOVE.

8-YEAR-OLD ROSELYN

BALDWIN'S MOST RECENT STOP

WAS A CINCINNATI POLICE

MEMORIAL PARADE.

OFFICERS THERE WERE

TOUCHED BY HER ACTIONS,

SAYING TO HAVE A YOUNG

PERSON SHARE LOVE FOR

POLICE OFFICERS WARMS

THEIR HEARTS.

ROSELYN SAYS THIS WASN'T

ALL HER IDEA.

Reporter: WHY DID YOU

DECIDE TO DO THAT,

SWEETIE?

I DIDN'T DECIDE.

GOD DID.

BASICALLY, IT WAS A

SHOOTING IN DALLAS THAT

REALLY BROKE HER HEART.

SHE SAID, MAMA, THEY'RE

KILLING OUR HEROS.

George: PRETTY

AMAZING.

ROSELYN HAS BEEN TO 27

STATES SO FAR.
