THIS WEEK ON "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS," THE MEETING

THAT MADE HISTORY.

PRESIDENT TRUMP COMES FACE

TO FACE WITH NORTH KOREA'S

KIM JONG-UN.

SEE WHAT IT NEVER WOULD

HAVE HAPPENED WITHOUT THE

PRAYERS OF NORTH KOREA'S

CHRISTIANS.

> AND HEAR FRANKLIN

GRAHAM'S SPECIAL MESSAGE

FOR KIM JONG-UN.

PLUS, IN A CITY WHERE

PROTESTANTS AND CATHOLICS

STILL HATE EACH OTHER, THE

CROSS STANDS AT THE ONLY

HOPE FOR THIS BROKEN

COMMUNITY.

AND HARRIS FAULKNER,

SHE IS A POPULAR TV HOST,

AND YET SHE SAYS GOD HAS

GIVEN HER AN EVEN HIGHER

CALLING.

> AND WELCOME TO

"CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS,"

EVERYONE, I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

GEORGE THOMAS IS ON

ASSIGNMENT.

> PRESIDENT TRUMP AND

KIM JONG-UN MET IN AN

HISTORICAL SUMMIT TO END

NORTH KOREA'S NUCLEAR

THREAT.

WHILE SOME SAY THE

AGREEMENT IS SHORT ON

SPECIFICS, MOST EXPERTS

AGREE IT IS A GOOD FIRST

STEP, NOT ONLY TOWARDS

RIDDING NORTH KOREA OF

NUCLEAR WEAPONS, BUT ALSO

EASING CHRISTIAN

PERSECUTION.

HEATHER SELLS HAS OUR

REPORT.

Heather: THE

PRESIDENT IS TOUTING NORTH

KOREA'S COMMITMENT TO RID

THE KOREAN PENINSULA OF

NUCLEAR WEAPONS, BUT THE

TWO LEADERS ALSO SAID THEY

NEED MORE NEGOTIATIONS TO

MAKE IT HAPPEN.

THE PRESIDENT'S CRITICS

ARE EXPRESSING CONCERN.

WHAT WE HAVE IS A VERY

VAGUE PROPOSAL, AND IT MAY

GIVE US CAUSE FOR HOPE,

BUT HARDLY CONTENT.

I READ THE STATEMENT,

AND IT IS DIFFICULT FOR ME

TO SEE IF SOMETHING WAS

ACTUALLY AGREED TO OR NOT.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S COMMITMENT TO

CALL OFF MILITARY DRILLS

ON THE KOREAN PENINSULA

CAUGHT MANY AT HOME AND

ABROAD BY SURPRISE.

President Trump:

UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES

THAT WE'RE NEGOTIATING, A

VERY COMPREHENSIVE

COMPLETE DEAL, I THINK IT

IS INAPPROPRIATE TO BE

HAVING WAR GAMES.

THE MESSAGE NOW IS:

LET'S TRY TO FIND A

PEACEFUL SOLUTION.

THE MILITARY EXERCISES

BEING PUT ON HOLD IS FINE

WITH ME.

IT GIVES US SPACE.

Reporter: RELIGIOUS

ADVOCATES SEE THE SUMMIT

AS A STEP IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE

TALKED ABOUT CHRISTIANS IN

NORTH KOREA VERY STRONGLY

WITH KIM JONG-UN.

FRANKLIN GRAHAM HAS

DELIVERED HAMTARIA HUMANITARIAN AID

TO NORTH KOREA FOR

DECADES, AND HE EXPECTS

PERSECUTION WILL TO SOME

DEGREE EASE.

NO QUESTION.

NO QUESTION.

I THINK THIS MEETING WITH

KIM JONG-UN AND PRESIDENT

TRUMP IS HUGE.

AND, YES, THE CHRISTIANS

ARE GOING TO BENEFIT IN

NORTH KOREA.

Reporter: THE OPTICS

OF THE SUMMIT STILL HAVE

MUCH OF THE WORLD IN AWE.

THE TWO LEADERS SIDE BY

SIDE AFTER DECADES OF

HOSTILITIES BETWEEN THE

TWO NATIONS.

SOME DEMOCRATS SAY IT WAS

A MISTAKE.

THIS WAS A BIG WIN FOR

KIM JONG-UN OF NORTH

KOREA.

HE GOT WHAT HIS FATHER AND

GRANDFATHER NEVER GOT: A

MEETING AS EQUALS ON THE

WORLD STAGE.

BUT PAT CADEL SAYS THE

PICTURES ARE FANTASTIC AND

WILL BUMP UP THE

PRESIDENT'S RATINGS, WHICH

ARE KEY TO THE MID-TERM

ELECTIONS.

THIS CANNOT HURT HIM.

I THINK THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO SEE

THIS RESOLVED.

IT WOULD BE IN THE

INTEREST OF PEACE.

AND IT WOULD BE TO

EVERYONE'S BENEFIT.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT CLEARLY INTENDS

TO RIDE THE MOMENTUM,

TWEETING ON HIS ARRIVAL

BACK HOME THIS MORNING:

EVERYBODY CAN NOW FEEL

MUCH SAFER THAN THE DAY I

TOOK OFFICE.

> HEATHER SELLS,

cbn.com.

Wendy: FRANG GRAHAM

HAS A LONG HISTORY WITH

NORTH KOREA.

IN THE 1930 IT'S 1930s, his mother

attended a boarding home

in North Korea.

FRANKLIN HIMSELF MADE FOUR

TRIPS BRINGING

HUMANITARIAN AID TO THE

COUNTRY.

EARLIER HE SPOKE WITH

HEATHER SELLS ABOUT NORTH

KOREA AND WHY IT GIVES HIM

HOPE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THE

FIRST PRESIDENT THAT HAS

ACTUALLY TRIED, AND IS

TRYING, TO RESOLVE THIS

ISSUE.

SO I COMMEND HIM AND JUST

THANK GOD THAT HE HAS

TAKEN THIS DIRECTION AND

HE IS FOCUSING ON THIS.

Heather: I KNOW THERE

IS A LOT OF HOPE AROUND

THE WORLD IN REGARDS TO

THIS, AND THE PRESIDENT

HAS SAID HE HAS SECURED A

COMMITMENT FOR COMPLETE

DENUCLEARIZATION OF THE

KOREAN PENINSULA.

HOW OPTMISTIC OR NOT

OPTMISTIC ARE YOU ABOUT

THIS?

OH, I'M VERY OPTMISTIC

ABOUT THIS.

I THINK THE NORTH KOREANS

HAVE WANTED TO TALK TO

AMERICA FOR A LONG TIME.

THIS IS THE FIRST

ADMINISTRATION THEY'VE

BEEN ABLE TO TALK TO

DIRECTLY LIKE THIS.

THE NORTH KOREANS JUST

WANT TO BE SHOWN RESPECT.

AND OTHER ADMINISTRATIONS

WOULD JUST KIND OF BRUSH

THEM OFF, LIKE THEY WERE

NOTHING.

THESE ARE PRIDEFUL PEOPLE.

THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT BACK

IN THE '50s AND '60s

HAD A PRETTY STRONG

ECONOMY.

AND THEY BUILT THEMSELVES

A BEAUTIFUL CITY,

PYONGYANG, WONDERFUL

MONUMENTS.

IT IS REALLY SOMETHING TO

SEE.

BUT, OF COURSE, IN THE

'70s AND '80s, THEY'VE

HAD FAMINE AND TREMENDOUS

ECONOMIC DECLINE.

THIS IS A COUNTRY THAT IS

IN TROUBLE.

OF COURSE IT HAS GOT THE

SANCTIONS.

THEY NEED HELP.

AND IF AMERICA AND THE

DPRK, IF THEY COULD

RESOLVE THE DIFFERENCES

AND HAVE SOME TYPE OF

PEACE TREATY BETWEEN THE

TWO, I THINK THIS WOULD BE

HUGE FOR THE DPRK.

IT WOULD BE HUGE FOR US.

WE COULD SAVE BILLIONS OF

DOLLARS BY NOT HAVING TO

SEND SO MANY TROOPS AND

WEAPONS TO THAT PARTE OF

THE WORLD.

Heather: THE

PRESIDENT SAID HE ALSO

BROUGHT UP THE SUBJECT OF

CHRISTIANS IN NORTH KOREA,

QUOTE, "VERY STRONGLY."

WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO

THAT?

THERE ARE CHRISTIANS IN

THE COUNTRY.

AND I JUST FELT BY

SAMARITAN'S PURSE T-AND AND THE

BILLY GRAHAM EVANGELISTIC

ASSOCIATION, BY

MAINTAINING OUR FOOT IN

THE DOOR, WE WOULD BE ABLE

TO HELP THE CHRISTIANS.

I WANT THE COMMUNIST

GOVERNMENT TO KNOW THAT

CHRISTIANS ARE NOT THEIR

ENEMIES.

THEY HAVE THE POTENTIAL OF

BEING THE VERY BEST

CITIZENS IN THE COUNTRY.

BECAUSE GOD COMMANDS US,

ALL OF US, TO PRAY FOR

THOSE THAT ARE IN

AUTHORITY, WHETHER WE PRAY

FOR OUR PRESIDENT, BUT THE

PEOPLE IN NORTH KOREA THAT

ARE CHRISTIANS SHOULD BE

PRAYING FOR THEIR

LEADERSHIP.

SO, YES, I THINK

CHRISTIANS PLAY A VERY

IMPORTANT ROLE IN SOCIETY.

AND THE NORTH KOREAN

GOVERNMENT -- I WANTED

THEM TO KNOW THAT, THAT WE

WERE NOT THEIR ENEMIES.

WE'RE THEIR FRIENDS.

Heather: DO YOU THINK

THAT THE SUMMIT HAS THE

POTENTIAL TO EASE SOME OF

THE PERSECUTIONS ON

CHRISTIANS IN NORTH KOREA?

NO QUESTION.

I THINK THIS MEETING WITH

KIM JONG-UN AND PRESIDENT

TRUMP IS HUGE.

YES, THE CHRISTIANS ARE

GOING TO BENEFIT IN NORTH

KOREA.

Heather: REVEREND

GRAHAM, WE REALLY

APPRECIATE YOUR TIME

TODAY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Wendy: WORDS OF HOPE

FROM FRANKLIN GRAHAM.

HIS SAMARITAN'S PURSE

MINISTRY HAS SHIPPED

MILLIONS OF TONS OF FOOD

AND AID TO NORTH KOREA.

YOU CAN LEARN MORE WOULD

YOMORE ABOUTTHAT WORK ON

CBNNEWS.COM.

> CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD BELIEVE THE

SINGAPORE SUMMIT WAS ONLY

MADE POSSIBLE AFTER

DECADES OF PRAYER AND

SACRIFICE BY NORTH KOREA'S

UNDERGROUND CHRISTIANS.

OUR LUCILLE TALUSAN BRINGS

US THAT STORY FROM

SINGAPORE.

Reporter: AT THE END

OF THE SINGAPORE SUMMIT,

PRESIDENT TRUMP AND KIM

JONG-UN SIGNED A FRAMEWORK

AGREEMENT FOR NUCLEAR

DISARMAMENT.

BOTH LEADERS KNOW MANY

MONTHS OF DIFFICULT

NEGOTIATES AND COMMITMENTS

LIE AHEAD BEFORE PEACE AND

PROSPERITY CAN BE REALIZED

ON THE KOREAN PENINSULA.

THE TWO MEN SEEMED TO

DEVELOP A GOOD

RELATIONSHIPSRELATIONSHIP, AND THAT MAY

BE THE SUMMIT'S GREATEST

ACHIEVEMENT.

THE PEOPLE OF SINGAPORE

SAY THEY'RE VERY HAPPY AND

HONORED TO HOST SUCH AN

HISTORICAL EVENT THAT

PROMOTES PEACE IN THE

WORLD.

A LOT OF WORK WAS DONE TO

MAKE THIS SUMMIT

SUCCESSFUL.

AN INTERVENTION OF LEADERS

FROM CHINA, JAPAN, AND

SOUTH KOREA.

BUT CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD ARE AT STRIBTIN ATTRIBUTING THE

SUCCESS TO THE MANY

SACRIFICES OF THE

PERSECUTED NORTH KOREAN

CHRISTIANS, AND TO MUCH

PRAYER.

THIS PASTOR RECOUNTS THE

SOUTH KOREA UPRISING

PRAYER CONFERENCE IN 2016.

WHERE YOUNG LEADERS OF

CHURCHES FROM DIFFERENT

NATIONS GATHERED NEAR THE

BORDER OF NORTH KOREA.

THEY CRIED OUT TO GOD FOR

THE REUNIFICATION OF THE

KOREAN PENINSULA.

ALTHOUGH HUMAN RIGHTS AND

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM WERE NOT

THE FOCUS OF THE SINGAPORE

SUMMIT, PASTOR JEROME

BELIEVES THAT THE

DENUCLEARIZATION CAN PAVE

THE WAY TO A GREATER

PURPOSE.

WE SHOULD NOT STOP AT

DENUCLEARIZATION.

WE SHOULD CONTINUE TO PRAY

FOR THE LIBERATION OF

GIVING FREEDOM TO THE

NORTH KOREAN BELIEVERS.

Reporter: SPIRITUAL

REVIVAL TOOK PLACE IN THE

NORTH KOREAN CAPITAL OF

PYONGYANG IN 1907.

IRONICALLY TODAY, NORTH

KOREA IS THE PLACE WHERE

CHRISTIANS SUFFER THE

WORLD'S WORST PERSECUTION.

IN THE BOOK BY MISSION

QUANG CHOY, IT IS FINE

SHALL I DIE.

THEY WERE BRAINWASHED FROM

CHILDHOOD INTO BELIEVING

THAT, QUOTE, "CHRISTIANITY

IS A TOOL OF INVASION OF

SMALL AND WEEK NATIONS BY

THE IMPERIALIST UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA, AND ITS

AGENTS SOUTH KOREA

PUPPET'S GOVERNMENT."

CHRISTIANS IN NORTH KOREA

WERE ALREADY IN PRISON

CAMPS EVEN BEFORE THE

KOREAN WAR BEGAN IN 1950.

THIS IS WHY CHRISTIANS

BELIEVE THAT A U.S.

PRESIDENT COMING FACE TO

FACE WITH A NORTH KOREAN

LEADER WAS UNIMAGINABLE,

AND NOTHING SHORT OF

MIRACULOUS.

PASTOR JEROME HAD A DREAM

ABOUT KIM JONG-UN JUST TWO

WEEKS BEFORE THE 2016

UPRISING CONFERENCE.

AND KIM JONG-UN -- HE

HAD A DREAM AND HE WAS

WAKING UP IN THE MORNING.

AND IN HIS DREAM SOMEBODY

WAS SPEAKING TO HIM.

MAYBE IT WAS GOD.

BUT THE VOICE WAS LIKE

THIS: WILL YOU BE

REMEMBERED AS THE KOREAN

WHO DESTROYS KOREA?

OR WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE

REMEMBERED AS THE KOREAN

WHO UNITS NORTH AND SOUTH

KOREA?

IN MY DREAM, ALL OF A

SUDDEN HE JUST SAYS HE

MADE A CHOICE, I'M GOING

TO BE THE KOREAN THAT WILL

UNITE NORTH AND SOUTH

KOREA.

Reporter: AND THIS IS

WHY PASTOR JEROME IS

RALLYING CHRISTIANS TO

PRAY FOR KIM JONG-UN.

I THINK WHAT GOD IS

SHOWING TODAY IS GOD HAS

ACCESS TO HIS HEART.

AND THEREFORE GOD CAN DO

MORE.

WE CANNOT ERASE WHAT HE

HAS DONE IN THE PAST.

AND I THINK THE WHOLE

HISTORY OF THE WHOLE

REGIME IS -- WILL ALWAYS

BE THERE.

BUT I BELIEVE AS A

MILLENNIAL, HE IS THE MOST

FLEXIBLE OF ALL OF THE

REGIME TO ACTUALLY BRING

CHANGE.

AND IF WE'RE GOING TO PRAY

FOR CHANGE, AND WE BELIEVE

THAT GOD CAN BRING THAT

CHANGE, WE WILL SEE ONE

DAY ONE KOREA.

WE WILL SEE ONE DAY

PYONGYANG WILL WELCOME

BELIEVERS.

AND WE WILL SEE GOD

MANIFESTING HIS GLORY

AGAIN, PROBABLY IN A NEW

WAVE OF REVIVAL ALL OVER

KOREA.

Reporter: LUCILLE

TALUSAN, CBN NEWS,

SINGAPORE.

Wendy: THANKS,

LUCILLE.

UP NEXT, THE CHURCH

THAT SITS ON THE BORDER OF

TWO WARRING COMMUNITIES,

AND HOW IT IS BRIDGING THE

GAP FOR PEACE.

WELCOME BACK.

THEY WERE KNOWN AS THE

TROUBLED.

FOR DECADES, A BRUTAL WAR

WAGED BETWEEN CATHOLICS

AND PROTESTANTS IN

NORTHERN IRELAND.

AND EVEN AS THE VIOLENCE

ENDED ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO,

TRUE PEACE REMAINS

ELUSIVE.

DALE HURD REPORTS FROM

BELFAST.

Reporter: THERE IS

PEACE IN BELFAST

OFFICIALLY, BUT THIS WALL

STILL SEPARATES CATHOLICS

AND PROTESTANTS, AND THIS

GATE STILL CLOSES EVERY

NIGHT.

NEW LIFE CITY CHURCH SITS

SQUARELY ON BELFAST'S

SO-CALLED PEACE BARRIER.

PART OF ITS BUILDING IN

CATHOLIC BELFAST, AND PART

OF IT IN PROTESTANT

BELFAST.

IT WELCOMES THOSE WHO WERE

ONCE MORTAL ENEMIES.

AMONG THOSE WHO COME TO

OUR CHURCH REGULARLY,

SUNDAY AFTER SUNDAY, ARE

THOSE FROM TERRORIST

BACKGROUNDS THAT AT ONE

TIME WOULD HAVE WANTED TO

HAVE KILLED EACH OTHER.

I WOULD HAVE KILLED SOME

OF THEM.

Reporter: JACK WAS A

SOLDIER DURING THE WAR AND

TODAY PASTORS "NEW LIFE

CITY CHURCH," ALONG WITH

HIS SON, JOHNNIE.

I THINK THAT MANY

AMERICANS LOOKING ON WOULD

BELIEVE WE REACHED PEACE

IN THIS COUNTRY.

WE NEVER REALLY GOT THERE.

THERE IS A SEMBLANCE OF

PEACE, BUT PEACE DOES NOT

REALLY EXIST.

Reporter: PARTS OF

BELFAST IS STILL WRACKED

BY VIOLENCE, DRUG USE, AND

BROKEN FAMILIES.

MEMBERS OF GROUPS HAVE

MORPHED INTO GANGS,

RUNNING DRUGS AND

PROTECTION RACKETS, AND

KILLING ANYONE WHO GETS IN

THEIR WAY.

THIS CHURCH IN AN OLD

WAREHOUSE SITS LIKE A

FORTRESS IN THE MIDDLE OF

IT ALL.

IT IS ONE THING TO PREACH

PEACE AND RECONCILIATION;

IT IS ANOTHER THING TO PUT

YOUR CHURCH ON THE BORDER

LINE BETWEEN FORCES THAT

WANT TO KILL EACH OTHER.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS

A BUILDING QUITE LIKE THIS

IN THE WORLD.

WHERE YOU HAVE TWO

OPPOSING COMMUNITIES, TO

OPPOSING PEOPLE GROUPS,

THAT HAVE LITERALLY KILLED

EACH OTHER BY THE

THOUSANDS.

Reporter: MOST JOIN

THE FIGHTING AS TEENAGERS,

AND SPENT THE PRIME OF

THEIR LIVES IN PRISON.

OSO MURDERED A MAN BEFORE

HE WAS 18.

I CAME ACROSS A GROUP

OF MAN WHO HAD TWO ROMAN

CATHOLICS UP AGAINST THE

WALL.

AND THEY ASKED ME, HAVE I

GOT A GUN?

I SAID, NO, I DON'T HAVE A

GUN, BUT I CAN GET ONE.

AS THEY SAID THAT, ONE OF

THE CATHOLIC GUYS RUN

AWAY.

I TOOK THE OTHER GUY AWAY.

I SET MYSELF UP AS JUDGE,,

JURY, AND EXECUTIONER.

I CARRY THAT CROSS TODAY.

Reporter: THIS WAS

ONCE A WAR ZONE IN

BELFAST, LIFTING THE CROSS

AS THE ONLY HOPE FOR THIS

DIVIDED COMMUNITY.

I COME FROM A REPUBLIC

IN WEST BELFAST.

AND TODAY IS MY PERSONAL

TOKEN OF RECONCILIATION TO

THE COMMUNITY, AND TO

RAISE THAT CROSS ABOVE

THAT GUN.

I USED TO BE A COMMANDER.

AND NOW TO BE A CHRISTIAN,

YOU'VE GOT REPUBLICANS WHO

HAVE BEEN BORN AGAIN AND

PROTESTANTS WHO HAVE BEEN

BORN AGAIN.

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE

CROSS IS THE CROSS IS FOR

EVERYBODY.

AND ALSO IN IRELAND, HE IS

A MAN WHO DIED ON THE

CROSS FOR THE SINS OF

EVERYONE.

AND IT IS A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY TO WALK OR RUN

THROUGH BOTH COMMUNITIES.

AS FAR AS I'M

CONCERNED, A TERRORIST IS

A TERRORIST.

AND FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TO

BREAK INTO THAT IS

SOMETHING THAT IS SUPER

NATURAL.

AND YET WE'VE SEEN IT

HAPPEN SO MANY TIMES.

Reporter: JACK

McKEE HAS BEEN

THREATENED WITH DEATH MORE

THAN ONCE FOR TAKING A

LEADING ROLE IN TRYING TO

STOP THE VIOLENCE IN

BELFAST.

I KNOW THAT I AM THE

MOST HATED PASTOR IN THIS

COMMUNITY, POSSIBLY IN

NORTHERN IRELAND.

I DON'T KNOW ANY OTHER

PASTOR THAT HAS BEEN

SENTENCED TO DEATH OR HAD

MORE DEATH ATTEMPTS ON

THEM THAN I HAVE.

I'M NOT OVER STEPPING

THAT.

Reporter: HE HAS

WRITTEN A BOOK CALLED

"WHAT DOES IT TAKE?"

I'M SIMPLY ASKING THE

QUESTION: WHAT DOES IT

TAKE IN ORDER TO MOVE

COMMUNITIES AWAY FROM

DIVISION.

THE CHURCH HAS THE ANSWER

TO THAT.

Reporter: "NEW LIFE

CITY CHURCH" OPENS ITS

DOORS TO THE COMMUNITY

DAILY WITH A SOCCER FIELD,

A COFFEE SHOP, AND

PROGRAMS FOR THOSE WHO

NEED HELP.

THIS COMMUNITY NEEDED

ANOTHER CHURCH, BUT NOT

JUST ANOTHER CHURCH.

IT IS ONLY THROUGH THE

GRACE OF GOD AND WHAT HE

HAS DONE.

THERE ARE VERY OFTEN

THINGS IN THIS BUILDING

THAT WE NEVER

ORCHESTRATED, AND WE NEVER

PLANNED, WE NEVER

PURPOSED, BUT IT JUST

HAPPENS.

I STOP BY SOMETIMES AND

I SAY, THIS IS THE LORD'S

DOING AND IT IS MARVELOUS

IN OUR EYES.

AND I GET AMUSED WHEN I

SEE PEOPLE COMING TO SEE

JESUS, AND KNOWING THEY

COME FROM A TERRORIST

BACKGROUND, AND THEY'RE

ABLE TO COME AND SIT IN

THE SAME ROW TO THOSE WHO

ARE ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE,

AND WORSHIP GOD ALONGSIDE

THEM.

ONLY GOD COULD HAVE DONE

THAT.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS, BELL FAST.

A GREAT STORY.

MORE THAN ONE MILLION

PEOPLE EVERY DAY TUNE IN

TO WATCH HARRIS FAULKNER,

AND NOW SHE TELLS US ABOUT

HER TRUE PURPOSE IN LIFE,

WHEN WE RETURN.

FOX NEWS ANCHOR HARRIS

FAULKNER, A FAMILIAR FACE

ON TV, BUT WHAT YOU MAY

NOT KNOW IS SHE IS A

SO-CALLED ARMY BRAT.

SHE SAYS BEING RAISED IN A

MILITARY FAMILY NOT ONLY

SHAPED HER VALUES, BUT

GAVE HER TOOLS TO SUCCEED,

TOOLS THAT ARE AS

IMPORTANT IN EVERYDAY LIFE

AS THEY ARE ON THE BATTLE

FIELD.

HARRIS FAULKNER HAS WORKED

HER WAY UP THROUGH THE

RANKS AT FOX NEWS, AND HER

SUCCESS AS CO-HOST OF THE

POPULAR PROGRAM

"OUTNUMBERED," HAS LED TO

HER OWN SHOW, "OUTNUMBERED

OVERTIME."

SHE CREDITS MANY OF HER

ACCOMPLISHMENTS TO A

MILITARY UPBRINGING AND

WRITES ABOUT IT IN HER NEW

BOOK, "NINE RULES OF

ENGAGEMENT: A MILITARY

BRAT'S GUIDE TO LIFE AND

SUCCESS."

MOST OF US NEED THE

PRINCIPLES OF THE MILITARY

TO GET THROUGH.

YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO

PUT A MISSION TOGETHER TO

VICTORY.

HARRIS IS THE DAUGHTER

OF RETIRED LIEUTENANT

COLONEL BOB HARRIS, AN

ARMY OFFICER AND PILOT WHO

SERVED TWO TOURS IN

VIETNAM.

SHE GREW UP HEARING HER

FATHER'S BATTLE STORIES,

WHERE SUCCESS OFTEN MEANT

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

LIFE AND DEATH.

SO WHEN I SAID, DAD, I

HAVE THESE RULES IN MY

LIFE THAT I LIVE BY, AND I

KNOW I CAME BY THEM FROM

YOU AND MOM, AND SOMETIMES

MY FRIENDS WOULD MAKE FUN

OF ME BECAUSE I WAS JUST

SO DISCIPLINED AND SET IN

MY WAYS.

AND I'M, LIKE, WELL,

THAT'S PART OF HOW I GREW

UP.

AND I REALLY WANT TO SHARE

THAT WITH A WIDER

AUDIENCE.

THE RULES START WITH

RECRUIT YOUR SPECIAL

FORCES.

THE NAVY SEALS DON'T

TRAVEL WITH 200 PEOPLE.

THEY CAN'T EXECUTE THE

TYPE OF TIP OF THE STEER

MISSIONS THAT THEY DO.

THE GREEN BERETS DON'T

TRAVEL LIKE THAT.

THEY CHOOSE AMERICAN

PEOPLE FOR CERTAIN

MISSIONS.

AND I THINK IN LIFE,

THAT'S HOW WE HAVE TO BE.

WE BECOME LIKE THE FIVE

PEOPLE WE SPEND MOST OF

THE OUR TIME WITH.

WENDY, WE'VE GOT TO BE

PICK KEY.

WOW!

AND YOU MIGHT HAVE TO

FIRE A FEW PEOPLE WHO

DON'T BELONG IN THAT INNER

CIRCLE BECAUSE THEY CAN'T

HELP YOU BE YOUR BEST AND

HELP YOU FURTHER YOUR

PURPOSE.

FAULKNER BELIEVES HER

DEEP FAITH IN GOD HAS ALSO

GIVEN HER LIFE PURPOSE.

MY MISSION IN LIFE IS

TO GET TO HEAVEN.

SO THE PEOPLE I HAVE IN MY

INNER CIRCLE I DON'T ALLOW

TO DO THE RULE BREAKING

THAT WE KNOW AS CHRISTIANS

WE CAN'T.

WHEN DID YOU REALIZE

I'M A BELIEVER, I BELIEVE

IN GOD?

FROM BIRTH.

IT WAS A DEAL BREAKER IN

MY HOUSEHOLD BECAUSE DAD

WAS AT WAR.

FAULKNER'S CHRISTIAN

FAITH MADE A RECENT

ASSIGNMENT TO THE MIDDLE

EAST EVEN MORE PRECIOUS.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE TO BE

THERE IN ISRAEL COVERING

THE OPENING OF THE U.S.

EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM?

THIS IS MY FAVORITE

QUESTION EVER.

THE BIBLE IS IN COLOR.

AND IT IS IN 3D.

AND YOU CAN TOUCH IT.

YOU CAN GO TO THE PLACE

WHERE THEY BROUGHT JESUS'

BODY AFTER HE WAS

CRUCIFIED AND LAID HIM

DOWN AND CLEANED HIM AND

PREPARED HIM FOR WHAT WAS

NEXT.

I LOVE THIS PART OF

YOUR BOOK -- YOU TALKED

ABOUT THE PLAQUE THAT YOU

HAVE IN YOUR OFFICE:

"JUST A GIRL WHO DECIDED

TO GO FOR IT."

OH, YEAH.

EVERYBODY TOLD ME THAT IT

WASN'T GOING TO HAPPEN.

NOT JUST A FEW PEOPLE.

LIKE, OH, ARE YOU GOOD AT

ANYTHING ELSE?

[LAUGHTER]

OH, MY GOSH.

AND AFTER GOING FOR IT

AND ACHIEVING, SHE IS NOW

IN A POSITION TO HELP

OTHERS DO THE SAME.

MY PURPOSE HAS

BROADENED.

MY PURPOSE NOW IS TO HELP

AS MANY PEOPLE RISE AS

POSSIBLE.

AND IT DOESN'T MATTER IF

THEY'RE WOMEN OR MEN.

BUT THAT SENSE OF VALUE

THAT WE HAVE AS

INDIVIDUALS, I THINK

INFORMS US AND HELPS US TO

TREAT EACH OTHER BETTER.

YOU HAVE HAD A

TREMENDOUS CAREER, SO MUCH

SUCCESS HERE AT FOX, AND

NOW WITH YOUR OWN SHOW.

ARE YOU LIVING YOUR TV

DREAMS?

I'M LIVING MY DREAM

TOTALLY.

I MEAN, MY CAREER DREAM,

MY HOME LIFE DREAM WITH

THE TWO KIDS AND THE

HUBBY, MY FAMILIAL DREAM

OUTSIDE OF THAT WAS FOR MY

MOM TO SEE ME HOST MY OWN

WEEK-DAY SHOW, AND SHE

DIDN'T LIVE TO SEE THAT,

BUT HER PARTNER DID, OF 57

YEARS, AND BECAUSE HE

PRAYS TO HEAVEN EVERY

NIGHT, I KNOW SHE KNOWS.

KNOWS.

SHE KNOWS.

SHE KNOWS.

SO IT IS A TOTAL DREAM.

AND YET THERE IS MORE.

SHE SAYS THE FACT THAT

SHE SITS WHERE SHE DOES

NOW IS NOT A COINCIDENCE.

THIS IS THE CULMINATION

OF ALL OF THE PRAYERS THAT

MY DAD SAID IN THAT

COCKPIT FOR ME, HOPING

THAT HE WOULD MAKE IT BACK

HOME.

I LOVED MY TIME WITH

HARRIS.
