THIS WEEK ON "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS," A LITTLE BOY

FORCED TO KILL.

THE HORROWING STORY OF A

CHILD SOLDIER, AND HOW HE

MIR CLUSLY GOT AWAY.

A WEEK LATER, HER SONS

WERE KILLED WHILE THEY

SLEPT.

NOW THIS SYRIAN MOTHER IS

TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT HOPE.

AND PHILIPPINE

PRESIDENT ROD TUTERTE

SPARKED OUTRAGE.

WELCOME TO "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS."

I'M JESSICA CHOCO.

AND I'M EMILY JONES.

HE WAS JUST SIX YEARS

OLD AND HE WAS KIDNAPPED.

AS A CHILD SOLDIER, HE WAS

FORCED TO DO UNSPEAKABLE

THINGS.

HIS STORY COULD HAVE HAD

AN ENDING AS BRUTAL AS THE

LIFE HE ONES LIVED.

BUT GOD DELIVERED JONAH

FROM THE HANDS OF HIS

CAPTORS.

TAKE A LOOK.

THEY KILL EVERYONE AND

BURN ENTIRE VILLAGES.

SO WHEN OUR NEIGHBORS

SCREAMED, THEY ARE HERE, I

WANT AND HID ALL DAY, BUT

THEY STILL FOUND ME.

Reporter: JONAH TOLD

ME THE INCREDIBLE STORY OF

HIS CAPTURE AND EVENTUAL

RELEASE AND RESCUE FROM

THE LORD'S RESISTANCE

PARTY.

HE WAS TAKEN CAPTIVE WITH

MANY OTHER BOYS WHEN HE

WERE YOU JUST SIX YEARS

OLD.

I WAS THE YOUNGEST

AMONG THEM.

WE WALKED FOR DAYS AND

THEN ARRIVED AT THE BASE.

THE COMMANDER GAVE ME A

BIG STICK AND ORDERED ME

TO KILL A MAN.

IF I DIDN'T DO IT, THEY

WOULD KILL ME.

I BEAT HIM AND BEAT HIM,

BUT I WAS SO SMALL AND

WEAK, HE WOULD NOT DIE.

THEN I SAID, JUST LET ME

DIE, TOO.

Reporter: THE L.R.A.

COMMANDER GATHERED ALL OF

THE BOYS AROUND AND TOLD

THEM NOT TO CRY OR SHOUT,

BUT ONLY TO LAUGH AND

CELEBRATE WHAT WAS ABOUT

TO HAPPEN.

THEY MADE THE MAN LIE

DOWN AND CUT HIM IN PIECES

AS HE BEGGED FOR MERCY.

THERE WAS SO MUCH BLOOD.

MY HEART CRIED OUT, BUT I

KEPT IT INSIDE.

I LOST ALL OF MY GOOD

MEMORIES AND ONLY SAW THE

MADNESS AROUND ME.

Reporter: FORCED TO

FIGHT FOR THE L.R.A.,

JONAH WAS BADLY INJURED

DURING A CROSS-FIRE.

THE SOLDIERS ASKED HIM IF

HE WANTED TO REST.

WHEN THEY ASK THAT, IT

MEANS THEY WILL MAKE YOU

REST FOREVER.

I SAID, I CAN WALK.

I PRAYED AND ASKED GOD TO

TAKE ME HOME.

I KNEW IT WAS OUT OF MY

HANDS.

I COULD NO LONGER DO

ANYTHING.

Reporter: NOBODY TOOK

CARE OF JONAH, SO WHEN HIS

WOUND DIDN'T HEAL, A

SOLDIER TOOK HIM TO AN

EMPTY FIELD TO KILL HIM.

BUT INSTEAD OF SHOOTING

HIM, THE SOLDIER LET HIM

GO.

I WANTED TO GET AS FAR

AWAY AS POSSIBLE.

I STAYED IN AN ABANDONED

HUT AS I SLEPT.

AND EVERY HOUR I WAS IN SO

MUCH PAIN.

AT NIGHT I WOKE UP AND

HEARD A VOICE SAYING, YOU

HAVE TO KEEP ON GOING.

I LOOKED TO SEE WHO SPOKE,

BUT THERE WAS NO ONE.

NOW I KNOW IT WAS GOD.

Reporter: IN ONE

ABANDONED HUT, JONAH FOUND

BEANS AND A FEW MATCHES

AND MANAGED TO START A

FIRE.

AN ARMY FIGHTING THE

REBELS SAW THE SMOKE AND

SURROUNDED THE HUT.

WHEN THEY FOUND JONAH

ALONE, THEY TOOK HIM TO

SAFETY.

HE WENT BACK TO HIS

VILLAGE, REUNITED WITH HIS

FAMILY, AND JOINED A PEACE

CLUB.

THE CLUB WAS STARTED BY

"EXILE INTERNATIONAL," A

MINISTRY SUPPORTED BY

CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

THROUGH THE PEACE CLUB, HE

LEARNED ABOUT THE GOD WHO

SAVED HIM.

EVEN BEFORE I KNEW HIM,

HE TOOK CARE OF ME.

I HAVE GIVEN MY LIFE TO

CHRIST, AND I KNOW THERE

IS NOTHING I HAVE OUTSIDE

OF GOD.

HYOU DIDN'T FIND ME BY

ACCIDENT.

GOD SENT YOU TO ME.

AND YOUR LOVE AND

ACCEPTANCE HAS HELPED HEAL

MY HEART.

Reporter: MANY OF

THESE CHILDREN ARE EITHER

WAR ORPHANS OR FORMER

CHILD SOLDIERS.

HERE THEY PLAY GAMES.

EARLY ON, A LOT OF THE

SKITS THEY PUT ON HAVE TO

DO WITH SILENCE AND WAR.

BUT IN TIME, THEY'RE DOING

LITTLE PLAYS ABOUT SCHOOL

AND THEIR FRIENDS BECAUSE

HERE HAY HAVE THEY HAVE A CHANCE TO

BE KIDS AGAIN.

WE ALSO ENROLLED JONAH AT

A CHRISTIAN BOARDING

SCHOOL, WHERE HE IS DOING

VERY WELL.

MY LIFE IS COMPLETE.

YOU HAVE CARED FOR ME LIKE

A PARENT AND GIVEN ME

EVERYTHING I NEED.

THERE IS NOTHING I CAN

GIVE YOU IN YOUR JOURNEY,

BUT I PRAY GOD WILL BLESS

EVERY PERSON WHO HAS BEEN

A PART OF BLESSING ME.

IT IS SUCH A POWERFUL

STORY, AND IT IS AMAZING

HOW GOD WAS WITH HIM IN

SUCH AN AWFUL TIME.

THAT'S TRUE.

AND THIS IS GIVING HIM A

FRESH NEW START.

THE HIGH PRICE OF

FOLLOWING JESUS WAS ONE OF

THE MANY ISSUES ADDRESSED

AT THE MISSIONS CONFERENCE

IN VIRGINIA.

THE EVENT PREPARED

CHRISTIANS FOR MISSIONARY

WORK FOR HOME AND ABROAD.

NOT EVERY CHRISTIAN WILL

BE CALLED TO SERVE IN

DANGEROUS PLACES, BUT

THOSE WHO DO SHOULD LOOK

TO GOD FOR DELIVERANCE.

YOU JUST BE OBEDIENT TO

GOD.

AND IF HE TAKES YOU INTO

PRISON, THEN YOU JUST BE

OBEDIENT TO GOD.

IF HE TAKES THINGS AND

MAKES IT DIFFICULT, YOU BE

OBEDIENT.

BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS WE

ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS.

THE THREE-DAY EVENT

TACKLED TOUGH SUBJECTS

SUCH AS CARING FOR

REFUGEES AND REACHING THE

UNREACHED IN AFRICA.

PEOPLE AROUND THE GLOBE

ARE REMEMBERING THE PLIGHT

OF THE WORLD'S

25.4 MILLION REFUGEES,

ESPECIALLY CHRISTIANS AND

YAZIDIS IN IRAQ AND EAR SYRIA.

IT IS ALL PART OF THE

U.N.'S WORLD REFUGEE WEEK.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE WERE FORCED TO FLEE

FOR THEIR LIVES.

COUNTLESS OTHERS WERE

DRIVEN OUT BY SYRIA'S

ONGOING WAR.

THE UNITED NATIONS SAYS IT

IS WORKING TO RETURN

CHRISTIANS AND YAZIDIS

BACK TO THEIR HOME.

MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE

MUSLIM REFUGEES ARE A

POTENTIAL SECURITY THREAT,

AND SOME SIMPLY SEE THEM

AS PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP IN

FINDING A HOME AND A JOB.

BUT OTHERS SEE AN

OPPORTUNITY TO SAVE SOME

OF THOSE REFUGEES, NOT

ONLY FOR NOW, BUT FOR ALL

OF ETERNITY.

GARY LANE BRINGS US THAT

STORY.

Reporter: I'M

STANDING ON MARS HILL.

THIS IS THE VERY SPOT

WHERE THE APOSTLE PAUL

FIRST INTRODUCED THE

E INIANS TO THE GOSPEL

MESSAGE.

2,000 YEARS LATER,

EVANGELISTS ARE STILL

PREACHING THE GOSPEL HERE.

AND THOSE THEY'RE HOPING

TO REACH ARE COMING TO

THEM.

THEY'RE COMING BY THE TENS

OF THOUSANDS, REFUGEES AND

MIGRANTS FLEEING WAR AND

HARDSHIP IN THEIR HOME

COUNTRIES, SEEKING REFUGE

AND A MORE PROMISING

FUTURE.

GREECE IS THEIR FIRST STOP

IN EUROPE.

I CAME TO GREECE WITH

NO PURPOSE IN MIND.

NOT FOR MONEY.

NOT FOR WEALTH.

I JUST WANT TO FORGET WHAT

HAPPENED TO MY CHILDREN.

I WANT TO LIC LIVE IN A SAFE

PLACE AND FORGET MY

CHILDREN.

Reporter: IN 2015, A

SNIPER IN THE SYRIAN CIVIL

WAR KILLED AMAL'S HUSBAND.

A WEEK LATER, WHILE STILL

GRIEVING HIS DEATH, SHE

TRAVELLED TO SEE HER

SISTER.

I LEFT MY SONS AT HOME

AND WENT TO VISIT MY

SISTER, WHO LIVES SEVEN

HOURS AWAY.

HER HUSBAND HAD JUST

PASSED AWAY.

I WENT TO COMFORT HER.

ISIS MEMBERS CAME IN THE

HOUSE AT NIGHT, WHILE MY

SONS WERE SLEEPING, AND

SLAUGHTERED THEM.

Reporter: TRAUMATIZED

AMAL LEFT THE HURT AND

HEARTACHE OF SYRIA BEHIND.

SHE MADE HER WAY TO.

(DOTURKEYAND THEN GREECE.

ALONG IN A STRANGE LAND,

AMAL, WHICH MEANS HOPE IN

ARABIC, SOON LOST HOPE.

I HAVE NO ONE TO TALK

TO.

I FEEL LIKE MY HEAD IS

GOING TO EXPLODE.

I CANNOT SLEEP IF I DO NOT

TAKE A SLEEPING AID.

I'M NOT USED TO BEING

ALONE.

I'M USED TO HAVING MY SONS

AROUND ME.

Reporter: AROUND THAT

SAME TIME, OTHER REFUGEES

FOUND A CARING FAMILY AT

THE APOSTOLIC EVANGELICAL

CHURCH OF PESALANIKI.

WE SAW THAT NEED COMING

TO OUR DOOR, TO OUR CITY,

AND WE HAD TO REACT.

Reporter: AS A PART

OF THAT OUTREACH, A

VOLUNTEER NAMED KATIE

APPROACHED AMAL.

I SAT DOWN NEXT TO HER

AND I HUGGED HER.

AND I SAID, "IT'S OKAY TO

PRAY TO GOD."

AND SHE SAID, IT'S OKAY.

WHEN KATIE SAW ME, SHE

HUGGED ME AND HELPED ME.

SHE TOOK ME TO CHURCH,

WHERE I SHOWERED, AND SHE

GAVE ME CLOTHES.

WHEN I VISITED THE CHURCH

ON FRIDAY, I FELT SO

COMFORTABLE.

AND I SLEPT AT NIGHT

WITHOUT TAKING A SLEEPING

PILL.

I WAS SO HAPPY, I LOVED

THE PROGRAM.

EVERYTHING I HEARD WAS SO

TRUE.

IT IS ALL IN THE BIBLE.

IT WAS A HAPPY DAY FOR ME.

Reporter: AFTERWARDS,

AMAL UNDERWENT AN

OPERATION TO REMOVE A SPOT

ON HER LIVER.

SHE THEN TOLD CBN NEWS HOW

THE EXPERIENCE GREW HER

FAITH.

IT IS TRUE THAT MY

CHILDREN WERE TAKEN AWAY,

BUT GOD STOOD BY ME WHEN I

NEEDED HIM DURING THE

SURGERY.

AFTER SURGERY, MY

CONNECTION WITH GOD BECAME

STRONGER BECAUSE I GOT TO

THE CHURCH MORE OFTEN AND

I COULD TRUST GOD.

THIS IS THE ONLY THING

THAT MATTERS.

Reporter: AS A

RESULT, AMAL MADE A BIG

DECISION, AND THEN

DEMONSTRATED HER

COMMITMENT TO CHRIST.

I WAS BAPTIZED BECAUSE

I TRUST GOD SO MUCH.

Reporter: THE UNITED

NATIONS PLACED AMAL IN AN

APARTMENT, ALONG WITH A

MUSLIM FAMILY.

ALTHOUGH SHE WOULD PREFER

TO SHARE HOUSING WITH A

CHRISTIAN WIDOW, LIKE

HERSELF, AMAL TOLD US SHE

WANTS GOD TO USE HER WHERE

SHE IS.

I WANT TO SHOW GOD'S

LOVE TO OTHERS HERE AND BE

AN EXAMPLE TO PEOPLE.

I'M PRAYING THAT I'LL

FORGET MY PAIN AND

EXPERIENCE A NEW, HEALTHY

LIFE, FULL OF JOY.

Reporter: AND AFTER

VISITING REGULARLY WITH

AMAL, HER KNEW FRIEND,

KATIE, IS OPTMISTIC FOR

THE FUTURE.

AMAL MEANS HOPE.

AND I THINK NOTHING IS BY

CHANCE.

YES.

I THINK THERE IS HOPE FOR

HOPE.

THERE IS HOPE FOR AMAL.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS, PESALANIKI,

GREECE.

COMING UP, WHILE

PHILIPPINE PRESIDENT DUE

DUTERTE CLASHES WITH THE

CHURCH, CHURCH LEADERING

BELIEVE GOD WILL TURN IT

INTO TRANSFORMATION.

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS

ON THE GROUND IN VIETNAM,

PROVIDING LOVE AND CARE TO

CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL

NEEDS.

WITH THE NEW SCHOOL FOR

THE DEAF, CHILDREN WHO

HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO

ATTEND SCHOOL ARE NOW

LEARNING TO READ, WRITE,

USE SIGN LANGUAGE, AND

UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE.

O.B. ALSO SUPPORTS TWO

THERAPY CENTERS THAT

PROVIDE FREE PHYSICAL

THERAPY TO THE CHILDREN

WITH NO COST TO THE

PARENTS.

> PHILIPPINE DUTERTE'S

STATEMENT OUTRAGED MANY

CHRISTIANS WORLDWIDE.

NOW CHURCH LEADERS ARE

EXPECTING GOD WILL BRING

SOMETHING GOOD OUT OF THE

CONTROVERSY.

LUCILLE TALUSAN HAS THE

STORY FROM MANILA.

Reporter: BROTHER

EDDIE, FOUNDER OF ONE OF

THE LARGEST CHRISTIAN

CHURCHES IN THE

PHILIPPINES, TOGETHER WITH

OTHER CHURCH LEADERS, HAVE

MADE AN APPEAL TO

PRESIDENT DUTERTE TO MAKE

A PUBLIC APOLOGY TO GOD.

MOCKING GOD, SLANDERING

GOD, WILL INVITE THE WRATH

OF GOD, NOT ONLY FOR

HIMSELF, BUT EVEN FOR THE

NATION, HIM BEING THE HEAD

OF THE COUNTRY.

WHO IS THIS STUPID GUY?

Reporter: ASIDE FROM

THE SCANDALOUS STUPID

REMARK BY DUTERTE, HE

EXPRESSED CONCERN OVER

UNGODLY POLICIES APPROVED

BY THE DUTERTE

ORGANIZATION.

WHEN THE POLICY OF THE

GOVERNMENT IS RIGHT, WE'RE

OBLIGATED TO SUPPORT IT.

BUT WHEN THE POLICY OR

PROGRAM IS NOT OBEYING GOD

GOD, LIKE THE DELIBERATION

RIGHT NOW OF SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE, I ABSOLUTELY

BELIEVE NO GENUINE

CHRISTIAN SHOULD SUPPORT

THIS.

Reporter: WHILE

OFFENDED CHRISTIANS ARE

PRAYING FOR D DUTERTE, AN

INITIATIVE BY THE

PRESIDENT SEEMS TO BE

TURNING THIS DARK

SITUATION INTO SOMETHING

POSITIVE.

FOR THE FIRST TIME,

PRESIDENT DUTERTE HAD A

DIALOGUE WITH THE LEADERS

OF THE EVANGELICAL

CHURCHES.

THE LEADERS ARE HAPPY

BECAUSE THEY SEE THIS AS

AN EFFORT ON THE PART OF

THE PRESIDENT.

WHAT SEEMED TO BE

INTENDED FOR EVIL IS NOW

TURNING OUT TO BE FOR

GOOD.

IT IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS.

ABOUT THE RESTORATION OF

RELATIONSHIPS.

WE CANNOT SEPARATE THE

STATE FROM GOD, AND THE

PRESIDENT NEEDS TO

INTERACT WITH THE

RELIGIOUS LEADERS IN ORDER

THAT WE CAN CHART A BETTER

FUTURE FOR THIS NATION.

Reporter: LUCILLE

TALUSAN, CBN NEWS, MANILA.

COMING UP, PRINCE

WILLIAM MAKES THE HISTORIC

TRIP TO THE HOLY LAND.

SEE WHY IT IS A MOVE

APPLAUDED BY BOTH ISRAELIS

AND PALESTINIANS.

PRINCE WILLIAM, THE

DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE MADE

HISTORY AS THE FIRST DUKE

TO EVER VISIT THE MIDDLE

EAST.

Reporter: PRINCE

WILLIAM SPENT MOST OF HIS

TRIP MEETING WITH MANY

ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS,

PARTICULARLY YOUNG PEOPLE.

I'M SO STRUCK BY HOW

MANY PEOPLE IN THE REGION

WANT JUSTICE AND LASTING

PEACE.

THIS IS ONLY TOO EVIDENT

AMONG THE YOUNG PEOPLE I

HAVE MET THAT LONG FOR A

NEW CHAPTER TO BE REACHED,

THAT WILL ENSURE THEIR

ENORMOUS TALENTS CAN

FLOURISH.

THESE ARE NOT EXTRAVAGANT

ASPIRATIONS.

Reporter: THE PRINCE

SHARES A SPECIAL

CONNECTION WITH THE JEWISH

PEOPLE.

HIS GREAT GRANDMOTHER,

ALICE, WHO IS BURIED ON

THE MOUNT OF OLIVES, IS

RECOGNIZED AS A RIGHTEOUS

GENTILE FOR SAVING A

FAMILY DURING THE

HOLOCAUST.

THIS IS A SPECIAL

CERTIFICATE IN OUR MEM

ROLE, YAD VASHEM, WHICH

YOU VISITED.

Reporter: THE VISIT

ALSO COMES AT A TIME WHEN

PALESTINIANS ARE AT ODDS

WITH THE U.S. OVER

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S MOVE OF

THE U.S. EMBASSY TO

JERUSALEM, AND A PERCEIVED

BIAS IN FAVOR OF ISRAEL.

PRINCE WILLIAM'S MESSAGE

TO ISRAELIS AND

PALESTINIANS WAS THE SAME.

I KNOW I SHARE THE

DESIRE OF ALL OF YOU, AND

WITH YOUR NEIGHBORS, FOR A

JUST AND LASTING PEACE.

Reporter: THE PRINCE

VISITED JERUSALEM'S OLD

CITY, PRAYED AT THE

WESTERN WALL, AND MET WITH

GOVERNMENT LEADERS.

PRESIDENT REUVEN RIVLIN

ASKED THE PRINCE TO PLAY A

ROLE IN COMMUNICATING WITH

THE PALESTINE LEADERSHIP.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEND

HIM A MESSAGE OF PEACE.

AND TELL HIM IT IS ABOUT

TIME.

IT IS ABOUT TIME THAT WE

HAVE TO FIND, TOGETHER,

THE WAY TO BUILD

CONFIDENCE.

Reporter: HE GOT THAT

CHANCE A DAY LATER,

MEETING WITH PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY PRESIDENT

MAHMOUD ABBAS.

I HOPE IT WON'T BE THE

LAST VISIT, AND WE HOPE

THAT YOU WILL VISIT US

VERY SOON, WHEN THE

PALESTINIAN PEOPLE GET

THEIR INDEPENDENCE.

Reporter: THE BRITISH

HAVE A LONG HISTORY IN THE

MIDDLE EAST, AND WHILE

THIS IS THE FIRST ROYAL

VISIT, IT IS NOT LIKELY TO

BE THE LAST.

JULIE STAAL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

ONE OF THE OLDEST

PROTESTANT DENOMINATIONS

IN THE WORLD IS GOING

THROUGH A CRISIS THAT

COULD DEFINE ITS FUTURE

FOR GENERATIONS.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

IT IS AN ONGOING BATTLE

BETWEEN TODAY'S CULTURE

AND TRADITIONAL

CHRISTIANITY.

ChrisCHRISTIANITY.

*

Chris: THE FACE OF

THE CHURCH AROUND THE

WORLD IS CHANGING,

LITERALLY.

THE LEADERSHIP OF THE

GLOBAL CHURCH, WITHOUT A

DOUBT, HAS PASSED ON TO

THE GLOBAL SOUTH.

AND AFRICANS ARE TAKING A

LEAD.

AND THIS IS, OF COURSE, A

GREAT CELEBRATION.

IT IS NOT A WHITE MAN.

IT IS THE RELIGION OF

AFRICA.

Chris: DOING THIS

RECENT GATHERING OF

ANGLICANS IN JERUSALEM, IT

BECAME CLEAR ONE OF THE

WORLD'S LARGEST PROTESTANT

DENOMINATIONS IS

REFOCUSING EFFORTS TO

SPREAD GOD'S WORD TO THE

NATIONS.

WHAT IS SO ENCOURAGING

IS WE HAVE MANY PEOPLE

FROM AFRICA OR ASIA.

THESE COUNTRIES ONLY

RECEIVED THE MESSAGE OF

THE GOSPEL 150 OR 200

YEARS AGO.

THEY HAVE BELIEVED THE

GOSPEL.

THEY REMAIN FAITHFUL, AND

NOW GOD HAS SENT THEM TO

US, ESPECIALLY IN THE

WEST, TO REMIND US WE MUST

RETURN TO OUR GOSPEL

ROOTS.

Chris: PEOPLE IN THE

U.S. WOULD RECOGNIZE THE

EPISCOPAL CHURCH AS PART

OF THE ANGLICAN COMMUNITY.

THE GOAL WAS TO CREATE A

ROADMAP FOR THE FUTURE OF

THIS CHURCH BODY.

IT BEGAN IN 2008, TO

UPHOLD TRADITIONAL CHURCH

TEACHING AND EMPHASIZE THE

CRITICAL IMPORTANCE OF THE

BIBLE.

ARCHBISHOP STANLEY FROM

UGANDA BELIEVES THIS GROUP

EXISTS TO MAINTAIN THE

PURITY OF THE GOSPEL.

IT IS ALL ABOUT JESUS.

IT IS ALL ABOUT MISSIONS,

EVANGELISM, AND PREACHING

THE GOSPEL, SO THAT WE DO

NOT DIVERT FROM THE TRUTH,

RE MAIREMAIN FOCUSED ON THE

BIBLE AND THE TEACHINGS OF

JESUS CHRIST.

Chris: MEMBERS OF

THIS CONGREGATION DON'T

EMBRACE HOMOSEXUALITY AND

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

THEY CALLED ON THE

ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY,

THE LEADER OF THE ANGLICAN

CHURCH, TO RESPENT.

REPENT.

WE WOULD LIKE HIM TO

KNOW THAT A BIG CHUNK OF

THE PEOPLE HE IS LEADING

ARE COMPLAINING VERY BADLY

ABOUT HIS DIRECTION, HIS

TRAJECTORY.

SO WE WOULD LIKE HIM TO

CHANGE.

THAT IS TO SAY THAT THE

MOST -- THAT HE MAKE A

STAND OF REPENTANCE.

Chris: THERE IS A

LETTER CALLING THEM

SHISHATICS, WHO HAVE

DEPARTED FROM THE TEACHING

OF THE BIBLE AND THE

HISTORIC CHURCH.

WE MUST RETURN TO BEING

FAITHFUL TO JESUS, DESPITE

WHAT THE CULTURE IS

TELLING US.

FOR MORE STORIES LIKE

THESE, PLEASE GO TO OUR

CBN NEWS WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

HE WAS AN ORPHAN ON THE

STREETS, BUT GOD HAD

BIGGER PLANS FOR HIM.

NOW HE STARTED A MINISTRY

TO HELP STREET CHILDREN.

OUR MIRANDA LEE IS WORKING

IN ETHIOPIA THIS MONTH AND

HAS THE STORY.

SHE IS ON A WORLD RACE, AN

11-MONTH MISSION TRIP TO

11 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES.

THIS IS A FEEDING

CENTER, A HOME FOR THE

CHILDREN IN ETHIOPIA.

AND ITS FOUNDER IS ONE WHO

KNOWS THE STRUGGLE

FIRSTHAND.

AND I WAS SO TIRED.

THERE WERE SO MANY TIMES I

TRIED TO COMMIT SUICIDE.

Reporter: ALREADY

WITHOUT A MOTHER, UDISA

LOST HIS MOTHER AT JUST

FOUR YEARS OLD.

SHE GOT ELECTROCUTED

WHEN I WAS FOUR YEARS OLD.

Reporter: AFTER

GROWING UP ON THE STREET,

HE SAYS GOD CALLED HIM TO

MINISTRY AS AN ADULT.

I SAID, GOD, OKAY, IF

YOU HAVE A PLAN AND FUTURE

FOR ME, I WANT TO KNOW.

AND I WILL FOLLOW YOU.

Reporter: THAT'S WHEN

HE FOUNDED "TESTIMONY

FEEDING CENTER."

IT IS A PLACE THAT

PROVIDES ORPHANS WITH FREE

MEALS, CLOTHES, EDUCATION,

AND HEALTH CARE.

ALL WITH MATTHEW 25:40 AS

ITS MANDATE.

THIS BOY IS AN ORPHAN,

AND HE STARTED WITH

NOTHING.

HE IS A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE

FOR A LOT OF US.

WHEN WE CAME TO

TESTIMONY, WE WERE

WELCOMED BY GOOD LOVE.

AND WE HAD A VERY GOOD

MEAL.

I AM VERY HAPPY.

WITHOUT A FATHER OF THEIR

OWN, THE CHILDREN OF

"TESTIMONY" USE HIS LAST

NAME.

WHAT IS YOUR NAME?

HE CAME TO ME AND HE

FOUND ME, AND HE GAVE ME

LIFE.

HE WAS THERE WHEN I WAS

HUNGRY.

HE WAS THERE WHEN I WAS

THIRSTY.

HE WAS THERE WHEN I WAS

HOMELESS.

Reporter: RIGHT NOW

THE CENTER IS CURRENTLY

SPONSORING 10 CHILDREN.

HOWEVER, THE ETHIOPIAN

GOVERNMENT IS WORKING WITH

HIM TO GRANT HIM A PIECE

OF LAND SO HE CAN EXPAND

HIS MINISTRY TO REACH MORE

CHILDREN.

CBN NEWS.

THANK YOU, MIRANDA, FOR

THAT WONDERFUL STORY.

AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING

US THIS WEEK.

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, GOOD-BYE

AND GOD BLESS YOU.
