Announcer: THIS IS

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

Efrem: AND THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR JOINING US.

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

WE BEGIN WITH THE FALLOUT

WITH ABC'S DECISION TO

PULL THE PLUG ON ROSANNE

BARR'S HIT SHOW.

Reporter: ROSANNE

BARR FOUND HERSELF IN HOT

WATER AFTER TWEETING,

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AND

PLANET OF THE APES HAD A

BABY.

BARR DELETED THE INITIAL

TWEET AND ISSUED AN

APOLOGY, TWEETING: I

APOLOGIZE TO VALERIE

JARRETT AND TO ALL

AMERICANS.

I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN

BETTER.

FORGIVE ME.

MY JOKE WAS IN BAD TASTE."

BARR ALSO TWEETED AN

APOLOGY TO THOSE WHO LOST

THEIR JOBS, AND TWEETED

THAT PEOPLE SHOULD NOT

DEFEND HER.

ON AN MSNBC SHOW ABOUT

RACISM, JARRETT RESPONDED.

I THINK WE HAVE TO TURN

IT INTO A TEACHING MOMENT.

I'M FINE.

THIS IS WHAT PEOPLE

FROM IRAQ AND PAKISTAN DO.

Reporter: ROSANNE

EARNED AN ESTIMATED

$4 MILLION THROUGH NINE

EPISODE.

HER STUNT THIS WEEK

RESULTED IN A STORM OF

CRITICISM AND A SHOW'S

CANCELLATION.

ROSANNE HAS BEEN A BITS OF

A PROBLEM FOR ABC FOR A

WHILE.

THIS WASN'T HER FIRST

NASTY TWEET.

Reporter: ABC'S

PRESIDENT OF ENTERTAINMENT

CALLED THE TWEET

ABHORRENT, REPUGNANT, AND

INCONSISTENT WITH OUR

VALUES.

AND BOB IGER TWEETED:

THOUGHTHERE WAS ONLY ONE THING

TO DO HERE, AND THAT WAS

THE RIGHT THING.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: BELGIUM

AUTHORITIES ARE

INVESTIGATING A POTENTIAL

TERRORIST ATTACK AFTER A

MAN KILLED THREE PEOPLE IN

THE CITY OF LIEGE.

AUTHORITIES ARE TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT IF HE ACTED

ALONE.

HE WAS RECENTLY RELEASED

FROM PRISON.

IT IS BELIEVED HE SHOUTED

"ALLAHU AKBAR" SEVERAL

TIMES DURING THAT ATTACK.

> THE OFFICIALS IN KOREA

AND THE U.S. ARE NOT

OFFICIALLY SAYING THAT THE

SUMMIT IS BACK ON.

PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED HE

HAS A GREAT TEAMWORKING ON

THE SUMMIT.

AND HE CONFIRMED A TOP

NORTH KOREAN OFFICIAL IS

HEADED TO NEW YORK FOR

TALKS WITH SECRETARY OF

STATE MIKE POMPEO.

> THE MISSOURI GOVERNOR

IS RESIGNING.

HE MADE THE DECISION AFTER

MULTIPLE SCANDALS,

INCLUDING ACCUSATIONS OF

SEXUAL MISCONDUCT.

> YOU CAN FIND MORE ON

THESE STORIES AND OTHERS

ON cbnnews.com.

> THE UNITED STATES IS

CALLING ON THE UNITED

NATIONS' SECURITY COUNCIL

TO MEET AND CONDEMN THE

HAMAS ROCKET FIRE AGAINST

ISRAEL WHEN IT MEETS ON

WEDNESDAY.

AFTER A DAY AND A HALF OF

SHELLING, ISRAELIS WORK TO

ATTEMPT CALM.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THIS

REPORT FROM THE GAZA

BORDER.

Chris: CHILDREN WENT

TO SCHOOL AND PEOPLE TO

WORK AT THE END OF THE

ATTACKS.

ISLAMIC PALESTINIAN GROUPS

LAUNCHED ABOUT 120 MARTYRS

ON THE GAZA BORDER.

THIS IS FULL-FORCE

TERROR.

AND ISRAEL WILL DEFEND

ITSELF BY ITSELF, AND WE

WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY

CRITICISM FOR DEFENDING

OUR CHILDREN.

Chris: ONE OF THE

FIRST PLACES HIT WAS THIS

KINKINDERGARTEN AT A KIBBUTZ,

AND IT HIT ONE HALF HOUR

BEFORE THE CHILDREN CAME

TO SCHOOL.

MOST OF THE ROCKETS AND

MORTARS WERE INTERCEPTED

WITH ISRAEL'S IRON DOME

DEFENSE SYSTEM.

ISRAEL RESPONDED BY

TARGETING 65 TERROR SITES,

INCLUDING ROCKET AND

EMISSIONS FACTORIES, AND A

TERROR TUNNEL.

MILITANT REPORTS SAID

PALESTINIANS THAT AGREED

ON A CEASE-FIRE.

FOR SEVERAL WEEKS, HAMAS

LED ATTACKS ALONG THE

ISRAEL BORDER WITH GAZA.

MANY BELIEVE THIS ROUNDS

OF VIOLENCE MAY BE AT AN

END.

THE SITUATION TODAY

REMAINS STABLE, BUT IT

DEPENDS ENTIRELY ON WHAT

HAMAS WILL TRY TO DO.

IF HAMAS WILL TRY TO

ESCALATE THE SITUATION,

THE I.D.F. IS READY TO

RESPOND.

TERROR WILL BE MET WITH A

FIRM RESPONSE.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, NEAR

THE GAZA BORDER IN

SOUTHERN ISRAEL.

Efrem: SECRETARY OF

STATE MIKE POMPEO IS

TAKING A MAJOR ROLE IN A

PUSH FOR WORLDWIDE

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

> THAT INCLUDES BRINGING

TOGETHER U.S. ALLIES AND

COUNTRIES SEEN AS MAJOR

OFFENDERS.

JENNA BROWDER SHOWS US

EXACTLY WHAT THAT COULD

MEAN.

Reporter: BROWNBACK

HELPED CHAMPION A LAW TO

CREATE AN AMBASSADOR FOR

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

TODAY HE HOLDS THATBITION,

AND IS READY TO TAKE A

POSITION.

WE MUST MOVE RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM FORWARD.

WE MUST DEFEND IT IN EVERY

CORNER OF THE GLOBE.

THAT'S WHY THE SECRETARY

IS HOSTING THE FIRST EVER

MINISTERIAL ON ADVANCING

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

IT WILL NOT JUST BE A

DISCUSSION GROUP.

IT WILL BE ABOUT ACTION.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO

IDENTIFYING CONCRETE WAYS

TO PUSH BACK AGAINST

PERSECUTION.

Reporter: A KEY GOAL

FOR THE EVENT WILL BE TO

CONVINCE HOW COUNTRIES

HURT THEMSELVES BY NOT

ALLOWING PEOPLE TO FREELY

WORSHIP.

YOU HAVE LESS TERRORISM

IF A COUNTRY IS

RELIGIOUSLY FREE BECAUSE

PEOPLE CAN THEN EXPRESS

THEIR FAITH INSTEAD OF

FIGHTING TERRORISM.

IT IS IN ALL OF THE

ECONOMIC AND SCIENTIFIC

DATA.

Reporter: AND TODAY

MARKED THE RELEASE OF THE

INTERNATIONAL RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM REPORT,

HIGHLIGHTING PROBLEMS IN

COUNTRIES LIKE RUSSIA,

IRAN, AFGHANISTAN, AND

NORTH KOREA.

WHILE BROWNBACK BELIEVES

THAT NAMING AND SHAMING

THESE COUNTRIES IS

IMPORTANT, HE ADMITS SOME

TYPE OF PUNISHMENT, SUCH

AS ECONOMIC OR

HUMANITARIAN SANCTIONS,

SHOULD MOVE FORWARD.

SECRETARY OF STATE POMPEO

CALLED IT AN INTERNATIONAL

HUMAN RIGHT AND SAID HE

WAS INTENTIONAL ABOUT

MAKING THE JULY EVENT HIS

FIRST OPPORTUNITY TO HOST

INTERNATIONAL FOREIGN

MINISTERS.

> IN WASHINGTON, JENNA

BROWDER, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: COMING UP, A

RIGHT-WING ACTOR VIS ACTIVIST IN

BRITAIN IS BEHIND BARS,

BUT MANY ARE OUTRAGED OVER

HIS ARREST.

WE'RE GOING TO EXPLORE

WHY.

Efrem: PRESIDENT

TRUMP HELD A RALLY IN

NASHVILLE TUESDAY, AHEAD

OF THE MID-TERM ELECTIONS.

HE WAS THERE TO GARNER

SUPPORT FOR MARSHA

BLACKBURN, WHO IS RUNNING

AGAINST FORMER TENNESSEE

GOVERNOR PHIL BRENANSON.

AND HE PRAISED THE

HISTORIC OPENING OF THE

U.S. EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM.

President Trump: TWO

WEEKS OUT, WHEN PEOPLE

SORT OF STARTED TO THINK

WE'RE GOING TO OPEN UP THE

EMBASSY, I WAS CALLED BY

EVERY LEADER IN THE WORLD.

DON'T DO IT.

DON'T DO IT.

WE DON'T WANT IT IS.

AND I UNDERSTOOD.

THE PRESSURE NOT TO OPEN

IT WAS TREMENDOUS.

AND WE DID IT, AND WE DID

THE RIGHT THING.

WE DID THE RIGHT THING.

[APPLAUSE]

Efrem: PRESIDENT

TRUMP REMAINS POPULAR IN

TENNESSEE.

HE CARRIED THE STATE IN

2016 IN HIS PRESIDENTIAL

RUN.

> PARENTS AND LAWMAKERS

ARE OUTRAGED BY A NEW

VIDEO GAME THAT LET'S

PLAYERS RECREATE SCHOOL

SHOOTINGS.

MORE THAN 57,000 PEOPLE

SIGNED A PETITION TO BAN

THE GAME CALLED "ACTIVE

SHOOTER."

IT ALLOWS PLAYERS TO TAKE

ON THE ROLE OF A SHOOTER

FIRING A GUN INSIDE SCHOOL

HALLWAYS.

THE PARENTS OF REAL-LIFE

VICTIMS SAY GAME DESIGNERS

CROSSED THE LINE.

AN ONLINE GAME DEVELOPER

HAS NOW AGREED TO PULL THE

GAME FROM IT'S PLATFORM.

> TOMMY ROBINSON IS AN

OUTSPOKEN ACTIVIST WHO IS

SPEAKING ABOUT THE GROWING

ISLAM IN HIS COUNTRY.

HE CLAIMS THE UNITED

KINGDOM IS LOOKING MORE

AND MORE LIKE A LEFT-WING

STOSTALINIST PLACE.

Reporter: A GERMAN

PARLIAMENT MEMBER HAS EVEN

OFFERED HIS POLITICAL

ASYLUM.

TOMMY ROBINSON WAS

ARRESTED FRIDAY FOR SIMPLY

FILMING OUTSIDE A BRITISH

COURT WERE A MUSLIM RAPE

GANG WAS BEING HELD.

HE WAS IMMEDIATELY GIVEN

13 MONTHS IN JAIL.

SOME FEAR IT COULD BE A

DEATH SENTENCE.

AS THE FORMER LEADER OF

THE ENGLISH DEFENSE LEAGUE

AND A LOUD VOICE WARNING

ABOUT THE ISLAMIZATION OF

BRITAIN, HE HAS BECOME A

WORLDWIDE SYMBOL OF

RESISTANCE.

THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT

USED TOMMY ROBINSON AS A

TROUBLE-MAKER, AND HAS

BEEN PROSECUTING AND

JAILING HIM FOR YEARS.

HE HAS BEEN UNABLE TO WORK

AND HAS HAD TO MOVE HIS

FAMILY SEVERAL TIMES.

HIS AUTOBIOGRAPHY IS

FITTING ENTITLED "ENEMY OF

THE STATE."

> HOW DO YOU FEEL, AS A

PATRIOT, LIVING IN A

COUNTRY WHERE YOU BELIEVE

THE STATE WOULD LIKE YOU

DEAD?

IT'S LIKE LOVING A

COUNTRY THAT HATES YOU.

THAT'S HOW IT HAS FELT.

I HAVE TO LOOK NOW AT THE

STATE AS AN ENEMY OF OUR

PEOPLE.

Reporter: WE SPENT

TIME WITH TOMMY IN HIS

HOME TOWN IN 2016.

AND HE TOLD US HE IS

CONVINCED THAT HE IS GOING

TO BE MURDERED.

I KNOW I'M GOING TO GET

KILLED.

I KNOW THERE WILL BE TIMES

WHEN PEOPLE ARE WATCHING

THIS AND I AM KILLED.

I'VE KNOWN THAT FOR YEARS.

Reporter: HIS

SUPPORTERS FEAR HE COULD

BE MURDERED IN PRISON.

LENNON TOOK US TO A PRISON

THAT HE CALLS AN ISIS

TRAINING CAMP, WHICH HE

FEELS HE WOULD HAVE BEEN

KILLED BY MUSLIM INMATES

IF HE HAD NOT FORCED

OFFICIALS TO PLACE HIM IN

SOLITARY CONFINEMENT.

HIS SUPPORTERS ARE HOPING

HE SURVIVES HIS 13-MONTH

PRISON SENTENCE.

I DECIDED, I'M GOING TO

GO OUT ON MY TERMS.

BECAUSE ULTIMATELY, WHAT

WE'RE DOING IS RIGHT AND

JUST.

I KNOW IT'S NEXT

GENERATION LEARNING OUR

HISTORY KNOW THAT I WAS ON

THE RIGHT SIDE.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD,

SPECIAL JOBS FOR SPECIAL

PEOPLE.

SEE HOW THIS BUSINESS

OWNER IS WORKING TO OPEN

THE DOORS FOR PEOPLE WITH

SPECIAL NEEDS.

>

Efrem: THE

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE HAS

DROPPED TO RECORD LOWS ALL

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, BUT

FOR THOSE WITH SPECIAL

NEEDS, FINDING WORK CAN

STILL BE A STRUGGLE.

OUR CAITLIN BURKE TAKES US

TO ONE BUSINESS THAT IS

EASING THE BURDEN ONE

EMPLOYEE AT A TIME.

Reporter: IT IS HARD

NOT TO SMILE WHEN YOU WALK

INTO THE HOWDY HOMEMADE

ICE CREAM SHOP IN DALLAS,

TEXAS.

YOU MAY NOTICES SOMETHING

UNIQUE IN THE PLACE, BUT

THEN THE SAMPLES START

COMING AND YOU JUST GET

CAUGHT UP IN THE

EXPERIENCE.

HOW ARE YOU?

I'M WELL.

HOW ABOUT YOU?

WELL, THANK YOU.

Caitlin: IN NORTH

TEXAS, THERE ARE OVER

240,000 SPECIAL-NEEDS

ADULTS LOOKING FOR WORK.

HOWDY HOM HOMEMADE ICE CREAM

SHOP IS LOOKING TO BE THE

ONLY BUSINESS TO HIRE ONLY

SPECIAL-NEEDS WORKERS.

THIS IS SAYING WE'RE A

FOR-PROFIT BUSINESS, AND

OUR EMPLOYEES AND THE

PEOPLE OUR EMPLOYEES

REPRESENT ARE A HUGE

OPPORTUNITY FOR THE

RESTAURANT INDUSTRY AND

OTHER INDUSTRIES TO REALLY

START TO HIRE.

Caitlin: HE SEES

SPECIAL-NEEDS EMPLOYEES AS

A SOLUTION TO SOME OF THE

INDUSTRY'S BIGGEST

PROBLEMS.

EMPLOYEE TURNOVER AND

POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, AND

THOSE ARE BOTH SOLVED BY,

I THINK, PEOPLE WITH

SPECIAL NEEDS.

THEY'RE FRIENDLY

CONTINUOUSLY, OVER AND

OVER AGAIN, AND AT HOWDY,

WE HAVE A ZERO TURNOVER

RATE.

OUR GUYS LOVE IT AND THEY

WANT TO STAY AROUND.

Caitlin: WHEN LANDIS

FIRST FELT THIS

INSPIRATION, HE WANTED TO

GIVE THESE WORKERS THE

BEST SHOT AT SUCCESS.

HE DIDN'T THINK HIS CHAIN

OF FAMILY SHOPS WOULD

ACCOMPLISH THAT.

WE WANTED TO LOOK FOR

ONE WHERE FRIENDLINESS WAS

MORE IMPORTANT THAN SPEED.

AND AN ICE CREAM SHOP IDEA

SORT OF ROSE TO THE TOP,

AND WE FILTERED EVERYTHING

ULS OUT.

Reporter: COLEMAN WAS

LANDIS' FIRST EMPLOYEE.

ONE OF THE FOOTBALL

TEAMS AS ITS ANNUAL DINNER

AT ONE OF OUR OTHER

RESTAURANTS, AND WE ARE

BUSY, AND COLEMAN WAS

THERE, AND HE STARTED

PASSING OUT FOOD AND

HELPING, AND I JUST KIND

OF NOTICED, HERE IS A KID

THAT, YOU KNOW, WILL SERVE

OTHERS.

HE DIDN'T NEED TO SERVE

OTHERS.

HE WAS THERE -- I FELT BY

THE ENDS OF TH END OF THE NIGHT, HE

HAD MORE FRIENDS IN THAT

RESTAURANT THAN I DID.

AND HE WAS EXACTLY WHAT

THE RESTAURANT INDUSTRY

NEEDS.

I LIKE TO HELP MAKE THE

ICE CREAM SOMETIMES.

BUT, PERSONALLY, I ALSO

LIKE TO BE FRIENDLY AND

SAY HI TO EVERYBODY.

OR EVEN SAY HOWDY TO THE

COSTUMERS.

Caitlin: LANDIS WANTS

OTHERS TO NOT ONLY

APPRECIATE HIS BUSINESS

MODEL, BUT TO REPLICATE

IT.

I THINK IN FIVE YEARS,

SIX YEARS, YOU CAN WALK

INTO ANY McDONALD'S, ANY

FAST-FOOD PLACE, AND

SOMEONE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

IS GOING TO BE WORKING

THERE.

THEY MIGHT REMEMBER YOUR

EXACT ORDER FROM THE WEEK

BEFORE, OR THEY MIGHT GIVE

YOU A HUG.

BUT IT WILL BE BETTER THAN

WHAT YOU'RE GETTING NOW.

Caitlin: AND IT'S NOT

JUST THE RESTAURANT

INDUSTRY HE HOPES TO

CHANGE.

IT TAKES SOME

ADDITIONAL UPFRONT

PATIENCE, LOVE, BUT I

THINK -- I MEAN, GOD MADE

THOSE WITH DOWN SYNDROME

TO TRULY BE THE VERY BEST

IN THE HO HOSPITALITY SENSE

OF THE WORD.

AND THOSE ON THE AUTISM

SPECTRUM, THERE IS AN

INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY FOR

THOSE MINDS TO BE

HARNESSED, IN THE

RESTAURANT COMMUNITY AND

BEYOND.

Caitlin: LANDIS SAYS

AT LEAST 50 PEOPLE WANT TO

FRANCHISE HOWDY HOMEMADE

WITH NEW OFFERS COMING IN

EACH DAY.

IT SEEMS THERE IS THIS

BEAUTIFUL ECONOMIC

INTERSECTION WHERE THE

ECONOMY IS STRONG, THERE

IS A NEED FOR BUSERS,

PEOPLE TO WORK BEHIND THE

COUNTER, AND THERE IS SUCH

A -- A GUY LIKE COLEMAN OR

MY CREWS -- TWO AND A HALF

YEARS AGO, NO ONE WAS

GOING TO HIRE THEM.

NOW I'M A LITTLE WORRIED

ABOUT, HEY, SOMEONE IS

GOING TO POACH THEM.

Caitlin: EACH AND

EVERY EMPLOYEE NOT ONLY

EXCEEDS THEIR BOSS'

EXPECTATIONS, BUT EVEN

THEIR PARENTS, TEACHERS,

AND EVEN THEIR OWN.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS,

DALLAS, TEXAS.

SPHRAIRP ITEXAS.

Efrem: IT IS CALLED

ICE CREAM AND A WARM

HEART.

> STAY WITH US: THERE

IS MUCH MORE "NEWSWATCH"

COMING UP.

Efrem: IT HAS BEEN

SIX YEARS SINCE AN

EARTHQUAKE ROCKED

WASHINGTON, D.C., AND

CAUSED MORE THAN

$34 MILLION TO THE

NATIONAL CATHEDRAL THE.

BEN KENNEDY TAKES US

INSIDE TO SEE THE REPAIRS.

KNOWN AS THE CATHEDRAL

CHURCH OF ST. PETER IN

ST. PAUL, IT OFFERS

SPECTACULAR VIEWS, VAULTED

CEILINGS, AND MORE THAN

200 STAINED CLASS WINDOWS,

INCLUDING ONE DEPICTING

SPACE.

A REAL PIECE OF THE

MOON IS IN THE WINDOW?

YEAH.

IT IS THE ONLY PLACE IN

WASHINGTON WHERE YOU CAN

ACTUALLY SEE A PIECE OF

THE MOON.

Reporter: SEVEN GRAMS

OF LUNAR ROCK.

IT WAS NOT JUST ROCK

THEY RETURNED TO EARTH,

BUT IN AN EXCITING WAY,

THE VERY ETERNITY.

Reporter: LED BY NEIL

ARMSTRONG AND BUZZ NEIL.

IT IS ONE SMALL STEP

FOR MAN, AND ONE LARGE

STEP FOR MANKIND.

Reporter: THERE IS

10,000 PIECES OF

HAND-BLOWN GLASSES,

HIGHLIGHTING GOD CREATING

THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE TOP

OF THESE WINDOWS, YOU HAVE

THE SUPREME COURT AND THE

WHITE HOUSE AND THEN THE

U.S. CAPITOL.

Reporter: THE

CATHEDRAL SITS ABOVE ALL

OF THOSE FAMOUS PLACES,

MAKING IT THE HIGHEST

POINT IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

IT IS THERE THAT STONE

GARGOYLES ARE BELIEVED TO

WARD OFF EVIL SPIRITS.

BUT ONE STONE SCULPTURE

DRAWS VISITORS TO THE DARK

SIDE.

THIS IS THE NORTH SIDE

OF THE CATHEDRAL, THE DARK

SIDE OF THE CATHEDRAL,

WHICH IS WHY HE IS WHERE

HE IS.

HE IS NONE OTHER THAN

DARTH VADER.

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU

IN TRYING TO TRACK DOWN

DARTH VADER.

AS YOU SEE, HE IS NOT EASY

TO SPOT.

I HAD TO TRAVEL 20 STORIES

UP STLIE THROUGH AN ELEVATOR TO

GET A TOP VIEW.

PEOPLE COME AND THEY

JUST WANT TO SEE VADER.

YOU WALK BY AND THEY'RE

LOOKING AND LOOKING, AND

THEY JUST WANT TO SEE HIM.

Reporter: A DESIGN

COMPETITION SPARKED AN

ENTRY, WHICH ENDED UP

EARNING THE WELL-KNOWN

VILLAIN HIS SPOT.

IT IS ONE FORM OF

ENGAGEMENT THAT THE PEOPLE

HAVE WITH THE CATHEDRAL,

WHICH SOMETIMES IS ALL

THEY NEED, AND THEN THEY

WANT TO COME BACK AND SEE

WHAT IS INSIDE.

AND THEN MAYBE THEY WANT

TO COME BACK AND GO TO

CHURCH.

SO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO

LURE PEOPLE IN THE DOOR,

VADER HAS A PURPOSE.

Reporter: HIS PURPOSE

MAY BE THE FORCE IN

HELPING THE CATHEDRAL

RECOVER FROM THE MILLIONS

IN DAMAGES.

A MAGNITUDE 5.3

EARTHQUAKE HAS BEEN FELT.

HERE YOU CAN SEE THIS

IS EARTHQUAKE DAMAGE.

Reporter: REPAIRING

AND REPLACING STONE WORK

COSTS BIG BUCKS, MONEY THE

CATHEDRAL DOESN'T HAVE.

THAT'S WHERE VISITORS AND

DONE NARS CADONORS CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

ALL TOLD, VISITORS, WE

GET ABOUT 750,000 A YEAR.

CHRISTMAS AND EASTER ARE

OUR BIG ONES.

Reporter: DURING

THOSE SERVICES, PRIESTS

AND GUESTS HAVE CHAIRED

GOD'S MESSAGE FROM THE

PULPITS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE

PREACHED FROM HERE, BILLY

GRAHAM, THE DALAI LAMA --

Reporter:

INFLUENCERS, TOURISTS, AND

A FAITHFUL FOLLOWING KEEP

THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL

RUNNING, AND HAVING THE

FORCE ON THE GROUND

DOESN'T HURT, ESPECIALLY

WITH NEW "STAR WARS"

MOVIES BRINGING IN NEW

GENERATIONS.

YOU CAN COME BACK TO A

TIME, AND TIME AGAIN, AND

YOU CAN FIND SOMETHING NEW

AND ENRICHING, SOMETHING

TO MOVE YOUR FAITH TO THE

NEXT PLACE.

Reporter: AFTER

SPENDING A DAY INSIDE, WE

ONLY GOT TO SEE A FRACTION

OF WHAT THE NATIONAL

CATHEDRAL HAS TO OFFER.

SO, BOTTOM LINE, IT

APPEARS WE'LL HAVE TO COME

BACK.

FOR CBN NEWS, I'M BEN

KENNEDY IN WASHINGTON.

Efrem: IT IS NOW TIME

FOR YOUR WEDNESDAY WORD,

AND TODAY'S WORD IS

"LOVE."

IF WE CHOOSE TO LOVE, IN

ALL THAT WE DO, PEACE WILL

FOLLOW, JOY WILL FOLLOW,

AND ABUNDANCE WILL FOLLOW.

WITH THAT WORD, I HOPE YOU

WILL CHOOSE LOVE TODAY AND

MAKE THIS A WONDERFUL

WEDNESDAY.

> THAT IS GOING TO DO IT

FOR THIS EDITION OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

WATCHING.

HAVE A WONDERFUL

WEDNESDAY.

WE'LL SEE YOU BACK HERE

TOMORROW.
