*
>>George: HELLO,
EVERYONE, WELCOME TO THIS
WEEK’S EDITION OF
“CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS.”
I’M GEORGE THOMAS.
MY COLLEAGUE, WENDY
GRIFFITH, IS OUT ON
VACATION.
OKAY, WE BEGIN WITH
CHRISTIAN REFUGEES WHO
ESCAPED PERSECUTION IN THE
MIDDLE EAST.
AS YOU ALTHOUGH, THEY
DON’T ALWAYS FIND A SAFE
HAVEN HERE IN THE WEST.
GARY LANE BRINGS US THE
STORY OF ONE SYRIAN
EVANGELIST WHO FLED ISIS
ONLY TO FACE DANGER IN THE
SO-CALLED SANCTUARY OF
CHRISTIAN EUROPE.
>>Reporter: WE MET HIM
BEFORE THE START OF THE
SYRIAN CIVIL WAR.
HE LED A SMALL CHURCH AND
SHARED HIS FAITH IN A
COUNTRY WHERE EVANGELIZING
MUSLIMS COULD LEAD TO
DEATH OR PRISON.
WE WITNESSED MIRACULOUS
HEALINGS, EVEN IN A SYRIAN
MOSQUE.
[SPEAKING A FOREIGN
LANGUAGE]
>>HALLELUJAH.
[SPEAKING A FOREIGN
LANGUAGE]
>>Through Translator:
WE WERE DISTRIBUTING THE
BIBLE AND JESUS’ FILM AND
DISCUSSING THE IMPORTANCE
OF BELIEVING IN THE LORD
JESUS CHRIST.
A GREAT AND AMAZING
MINISTRY WAS THERE.
AND A LOT OF MUSLIMS WERE
ACCEPTING THE LORD JESUS
AS THEIR OWN SAVIOR.
THEN THE WAR CAME TO SYRIA
BETWEEN THE EXTREMIST
ISLAMIC MOVEMENTS AND THE
SYRIAN REGIME.
>>Reporter: ISIS AND
OTHER MILITANT GROUPS
TARGETED CHRISTIANS FOR
ATTACK, BECAUSE THEY SAW
THEM AS SUPPORTERS OF THE
ASSAD REGIME.
HE ESCAPED TO RUSSIA AND
WAITED PATIENTLY FOR THE
GOVERNMENT TO GRANT HIM
RELIGIOUS ASYLUM.
AFTER MONTHS OF
FRUSTRATION OVER DELAYS
AND INACTION, THE SYRIAN
PASTOR FLED RUSSIA.
HE ENDED UP HERE, ABOVE
THE ARCTIC CIRCLE.
*
>>Reporter: WELCOME TO
THE CITY OF FINS NEST, AND AN
UNLIKELY HOME FOR SYRIAN
REFUGEES.
THEY KNEW MOST WESTERN
COUNTRIES PRACTICED
DEMOCRATIC CONCEPTS OF
FREE SPEECH AND RELIGIOUS
FREEDOM.
HE HOPED TO FIND PEACE IN
NORWAY, FAR FROM THE
SYRIAN WAR AND THE THREAT
OF DEATH AT THE HANDS OF
ISIS.
HE SHARED CHRIST ON SOCIAL
MEDIA AND COMPARED
BIBLICAL TEACHINGS TO
QURANIC DOCTRINE.
HIS EXPERIENCE MOVED HIM
TO WARN NORWEGIANS ABOUT
THE DANGERS OF ISLAM.
>>THEY SENT DEATH THREATS
TO US THROUGH
FacebookMENFacebook.THEY SAID THEY WERE SO
CLOSE TO US.
>>Reporter: THEY WARNED
HIM THE JIHADISTS LIVED IN
HIS CENTER AND COULD
EASILY KILL HIM IF HE DID
NOT STOP POSTING HIS
THREATS ON THE INTERNET.
>>I DIDN’T STOP WRITING
ON Facebook BECAUSE I
BELIEVE IN FREE SPEECH.
I ALSO BELIEVE IN THE
POWER OF GOD’S WORD.
THE WESTERN WORLD HAS TO
KNOW WHAT IS INSIDE THE
QURAN.
THE WORLD IS IN TROUBLE
AND CHAOS BECAUSE OF
RADICAL MUSLIM TEACHINGS.
A THE LOT OF THEM ARE
COMING TO EUROPE AND
AMERICA.
THEY MERGE INTO SOCIETY
WHILE SUPPORTING QURANIC
VERSES THAT INCITES
VIOLENCE AND HATRED.
>>Reporter: HE ASKED
THE LOCAL POLICE CAPTAIN
FOR HELP AFTER RECEIVING
FROM THREATENING PHONE
CALLS.
>>WE TRIED TO HELP HIM IN
THE BEST WAY WE CAN DO.
>>Reporter: THIS
CAPTAIN GAVE SAEED A
G.P.S. TRACKING DEVICE TO
USE IF SOMEONE TRIED TO
HARM HIM.
>>IF HE ACTIVATES THIS,
WE WILL RESPOND.
>>Reporter: SAEED AND
RONA WOULD LIKELY BE SAFER
SHUT INSIDE THEIR
IMMIGRANT APARTMENT HOUSE.
BUT THEY VENTURE OUT
REGULARLY, MEETING
NEWFOUND FRIENDS AND
SHARING THE LOVE OF CHRIST
WITH OTHER IMMIGRANTS.
REFUGEES LIKE JAMEL AND
HIS FAMILY.
HE HAS CANCER AND IS
CURRENTLY UNDERGOING
CHEMOTHERAPY.
HE HAS HAD SIX SURGERIES
TO REMOVE HIS LEFT KIDNEY
AND PARTS OF HIS COLON AND
SPLEEN.
STRUGGLING WITH A TERMINAL
ILLNESS IN AN UNFAMILIAR
COUNTRY, HE IS ENCOURAGED
WHEN SAEED COMES TO PRAY
WITH HIM.
>>MY FAITH AND TRUST IN
JESUS IS INCREASING, AND I
HOPE GOD WILL DO A MIRACLE
AND HEAL ME FROM THIS
SICKNESS.
>>Reporter: THIS
SUMMER, IMMIGRATION
OFFICIALS TOLD SAEED AND
RONA THEY WOULD BE ALLOWED
TO STAY.
THEY SAY DESPITE THEIR
DIFFICULTIES, THEY HAVE
GROWN TO LOVE THEIR NEW
HOME.
>>EUROPE NEEDS JESUS
CHRIST NOW.
A LOT OF NORWEGIAN PEOPLE
HAVE DRIFTED FAR FROM
CHRIST.
BUT I BELIEVE THEY WILL
RETURN TO HIM AND THEY
WILL NOT ALLOW OTHER
CULTURES AND RELIGIONS TO
DESTROY THIS BEAUTIFUL
SOCIETY, WHICH WAS BUILT
ON CONGRESSIONAL CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES OF
FAITH, LOVE, AND HUMAN
RIGHTS.
>>Reporter: IN IT IS
THAT LOVE FOR PEOPLE THAT
HAS INSPIRED SAEED TO
CONTINUE SHARING THE LOVE
OF JESUS CHRIST, WHETHER
IT IS IN SYRIA OR ONE OF
THE REMOTE PLACES ON
EARTH, WAY UP IN THE
ARCTIC CIRCLE.
>>George: GARY, THANK
YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT
POWERFUL STORY.
>>>IN OTHER MUSE NEWS, A
PARISH CHURCH IN ENGLAND
SAYS ITS WELCOMING
REFUGEES HAVE TRANSFORMED
ITS OWN COMMUNITY.
THEY SAID THREE TO FOUR
REFUGEES HAVE ACCEPTED
JESUS CHRIST EACH WEEK.
THEY PROVIDE THEM WITH
NEEDED FOOD, CLOTHING,
MEDICAL CARE, AND EVEN
LANGUAGE LESSONS.
THE CHURCH RECENTLY
BAPTIZED 15 REFUGEES.
>>IT SAVED OUR CHURCH
FROM BEING A WORKING-CLASS
WHITE CONGREGATION, AND
NOW THERE ARE 12 WHITE
PEOPLE SITTING THERE ON
SUNDAY MORNING, AND IT HAS
CHANGED US INTO A VIBRANT,
MULTI-CULTURAL, DIVERSE,
WORSHIPPING CHRISTIAN
COMMUNITY.
>>George: FASCINATING.
>>>AFTER TWO ISIS
TERRORISTS MURDERED A
TRENCH PRIEST AT THE
ALTER, REVEREND SMITH SAYS
CHURCHES IN EUROPE SHOULD
TAKE PRECAUTIONS, BUT THEY
SHOULD CONTINUE TO SEEK
OUT AND SERVE MUSLIM
REFUGEES.
>>THE LATEST ISSUE OF THE
ISIS ONLINE MAGAZINE IS
TITLED “BREAK THE CROSS,”
AND IT INCLUDES AN ARTICLE
CALLED “WHY WE HATE YOU
AND FIGHT YOU.”
“WE HATE YOU, FIRST AND
FOREMOST BECAUSE YOU ARE
DISBELIEVERS, YOU REJECT
THE ONENESS OF ALLAH,
WHETHER YOU REALIZE IT OR
NOT, BY MAKING PARTNERS IN
WORSHIP, YOU BLASEMY HIM,
CLAIMING HE HAS A SON.
EVEN IF YOU STOPPING
BOMBING US, VILIFYING US
AND USURPING OUR LANDS, WE
WILL CONTINUE TO HATE YOU
BECAUSE OUR PRIMARY REASON
FOR HATING YOU WILL NOT
CEASE TO EXIST UNTIL YOU
EMBRACE ISLAM.”

IT IS CALLED “HURD ON THE
WEB.”
>>>ISRAEL’S INTERNAL
SECURITY AGENCY SAYS A
HAMAS OPERATIVE
INFILTRATED “WORLD VISION”
IN GAZA.
THE MAN, WHO WAS A
MANAGER, SIPHONED OFF MORE
THAN $40 MILLION FOR THE
TERRORIST GROUP HAMAS.
MUCH OF THAT MONEY WAS, BY
THE WAY, DONATED BY
CHRISTIANS AROUND THE
WORLD.
ISRAEL SAYS 60% OF THE GAZ
TA BUDGEGAZA BUDGET WAS USED TO
BUILD ROCKETS, ATTACK
ISRAEL, AND FUND OTHER
HAMAS MILITARY PROJECTS.
IN A STATEMENT, “WORLD
VISION” SAID IT WAS
SHOCKED BY THE CHARGES
AGAINST ITS MANAGER.
AND IT REJECTED ANY
INVOLVEMENT IN ANY
POLITICAL, MILITARY OR
TERRORIST ACTIVITIES.
AND THEY MAY NOT BE THE
ONLY HUMANITARIAN AID
ORGANIZATION DECEIVED BY
HAMAS.
>>>COMING UP NEXT, THE
PLANE SHE WAS ON CRASHED,
BUT SHE STILL BELIEVES IT
WAS GOD’S WILL FOR HER TO
BE THERE.
FIND OUT WHY AFTER THIS.
>>George: AND WELCOME
BACK TO “CHRISTIAN WORLD
NEWS.”
ON JULY 19, 1989, HELEN
HAZHAYES BOARDED A UNITED
FLIGHT BOUND FOR CHICAGO.
THAT FLIGHT NEVER MADE IT.
IT SUFFERED THE
CATASTROPHIC FAILURE OF
ITS ENGINE AND CRASHED IN
SIOUX CITY, IOWA.
MIRACULOUSLY, SHE SURVIVED
AND IS NOW TELLING HER
STORY.
>>Reporter: WE HEARD
AND WATCHED THAT DAY,
JULY 18, 1989, WHEN A
JUMBO JET LOST ITS
HYDRAULICS.
>>HE’S COMING DOWN REAL
FAST ON THE SOUTH END.
>>STAND BY!
>>HE’S HIGHER.
DOWN!
>>Reporter: DO YOU
REMEMBER THAT DAY, HELEN?
>>I REMEMBER EVERY MINUTE
OF THAT DAY, AS VIVIDLY AS
IF IT WERE LAST WEEK.
>>Reporter: WHAT WE
DIDN’T KNOW IS HOW THIS
TESTED THE FAITH OF HELEN,
A SUCCESSFUL MONEY MANAGER
SEATED IN ROW NINE.
SHE PRAYED THE IMPOSSIBLE,
THAT GOD LITERALLY GUIDE
THE PILOT’S HANDS AS THEY
ATTEMPTED TO LAND WITH NO
HYDRAULIC ASSISTANCE.
>>JUST AS I FIGURED OUT
THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG,
THE CAPTAIN CAME ON AGAIN
AND HE SAID, LADIES AND
GENTLEMEN, WE WILL THE NOT
BE MAKING IT TO CHICAGO
AFTER ALL.
WE HAVE SUSTAINED TAIL
DAMAGE TO OUR PLANE.
WE’RE GOING TO ATTEMPT AN
EMERGENCY LANDING IN SIOUX
CITY, IOWA, IN 30 MINUTES.
I’M NOT GOING TO KID YOU,
FOLKS, IT IS GOING TO BE
ROUGH.
>>Reporter: TELL US
ABOUT IT.
>>THE PLANE WAS JUST
CAREENING ABOUT.
I LOOKED UP, AND AS I WAS
BEING THROWN AROUND IN MY
SEAT, I SAW MYSELF
SURROUNDED WITH FLAMES.
THAT MOMENT, FOR THE FIRST
TIME, I WAS AFRAID.
I THOUGHT, DEAR GOD, DON’T
LET ME BE BURNED.
AND THEN THE FLAMES PASSED
AND SUDDENLY WE WERE
SOMERSAULTING OVER AND
TUMBLING UPSIDE DOWN.
AND THEN WE SLID TO A
STOP.
ALL I COULD HEAR WAS THE
SOUND OF CRACKLING AND
SIZZLING AND BURNING.
>>Reporter: WHICH WAS
THE PLANE, RIGHT?
>>WHICH WAS THE PLANE
BURNING.
I COULD HEAR PASSENGERS
MOANING, AND I WAS HANGING
UPSIDE DOWN.
AND I THOUGHT, WELL, WHAT
DO I DO NOW?
BECAUSE THIS IS NOT WHAT
WE HAD REHEARSED.
THIS IS NOT WHAT I
EXPECTED.
>>Reporter: SO YOU
SURVIVED.
YOU WERE ONE OF THE 185
PEOPLE THAT SURVIVED.
AND THERE WERE 296 ON THE
PLANE.
DO YOU EVER WONDER WHY YOU
WERE ONE OF THE SURVIVORS
BECAUSE 111 PEOPLE DID NOT
WALK OFF THAT PLANE.
>>I KNEW I WAS ON THAT
PLANE FOR A REASON.
I WAS ON THE PLANE BECAUSE
UNBEKNOWNST TO ME, THE
PILOT’S HANDS NEEDED
GUIDANCE.
A PRAYER WAS PUT IN ME
THAT I JUST PRAYED.
>>Reporter: WHAT DID
YOU PRAY?
>>THE FIRST THING THAT
CAME TO MY MIND WAS THE
PILOT’S HANDS.
I CLOSED MY EYES AND I
JUST STARTED PRAYING FOR
THE PILOTS.
AND I ASKED THE LORD TO
GIVE THEM GUIDANCE AND
WISDOM AND SHOW THEM WHAT
TO DO.
AND I BELIEVE MY PRAYER
WAS ANSWERED THAT DAY.
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN
AVIATION HISTORY, THE
PLANE — A PLANE THAT WAS
UNSTEERABLE AND HAD NO
ELEVATORS — SO IT DIDN’T
HAVE THE ABILITY TO GO UP
AND DOWN, AND IT DID NOT
HAVE BRAKES AND LANDING
GEAR — A COMPLETELY
UNSTEERABLE PLANE WAS
BROUGHT TO THE RUNWAY.
AND WHILE THEY EXPECTED
THAT NO ONE WOULD SURVIVE,
185 PEOPLE LIVED.
I KNOW THAT’S WHY I WAS ON
THE PLANE.
>>>Reporter: WHERE DID
YOU GET THAT FAITH?
>>I HAD GROWN UP
BELIEVING IN THE SALVATION
OF JESUS THROUGH MY MOTHER
AND THROUGH OUR ATTENDING
OUR LOCAL CATHOLIC CHURCH.
BUT THERE WAS A PART OF ME
THAT ALWAYS WONDERED, EVER
SINCE I WAS A LITTLE GIRL,
WILL WHAT I BELIEVE
IMPROVE TO BE REAL TO ME
WHEN I NEED IT THE MOST?
AND WHEN I AM SITTING AT
THE EDGE OF ETERNITY, WILL
I BE AFRAID?
AND WILL GOD BE REAL TO
ME?
AND SO WHAT WAS DECIDED
FOR ME ON JULY 19, 1989,
WAS, YES, ALL OF THAT IS
MORE REAL THAN ANYTHING
ELSE.
>>Reporter: HOW DO I
HAVE THAT RELATIONSHIP
THAT YOU HAVE, THAT IS
REALLY GETTING YOU THROUGH
AND HELPING YOU LIVE A
BIGGER LIFE THAN YOU COULD
HAVE IMAGINED?
>>I THINK IT IS REALLY
THROUGH KNOWING WHO THE
PERSON OF JESUS CHRIST IS.
AND WE LEARN ABOUT HIM
THROUGH SCRIPTURE, THROUGH
WHAT HE SAID, THROUGH WHAT
HE DID.
WE LEARN ABOUT HIM IN
COMMUNITY.
WE LEARN ABOUT HIM THROUGH
THE LIVES AND EXPERIENCES
OF OTHER PEOPLE.
AND THEN WE JUST LEARN
ABOUT HIM BY SPENDING TIME
WITH HIM.
>>Reporter: YOU HAVE
RACKED UP HOW MANY MILES
ON AN AIRPLANE.
YOU’RE UNDAUNTED BY WHAT
HAPPENED TO YOU.
>>I HAVE HIT THE MILLION
MILE MARK.
AND I HAVE LOOKED DEATH IN
THE EYE AND SAT AND
GLANCED OVER THE EDGE OF
ETERNITY, AND I HAVE TO
SAY, I BELIEVE THAT DEATH
IS NOTHING TO FEAR BECAUSE
I KNOW THAT THIS LIFE, IT
WILL JUST USHER IN THE
NEXT LIFE, THE REAL LIFE.
>>Reporter: IT’S
GRADUATION DAY.
>>IT’S GRADUATION DAY.
>>George: UP NEXT,
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION IN
CHINA?
HOW AMERICAN AND CHINESE
CHRISTIANS ARE WORKING
TOGETHER TO TEACH THE NEXT
GENERATION ABOUT JESUS.
>>George: GOSH, SUMMER
IS GOING REALLY, REALLY
FAST.
IN A FEW SHORT WEEKS,
SUMMER VACATION WILL END,
AND STUDENTS HERE IN THE
UNITED STATES WILL RETURN
TO SCHOOL.
MILLIONS OF THOSE
STUDENTS, BY THE WAY, WILL
ATTEND CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS.
AND NOW SOME OF THOSE
SCHOOLS ARE REACHING
BEYOND JUST THEIR LOCAL
COMMUNITIES AND THEY’RE
GOING INTERNATIONAL.
MUNG FE LI HAS THE STORY
OF HOW AMERICAN EDUCATORS
ARE PLANTING CHRISTIAN
SCHOOLS ALL THE WAY IN
CHINA.
>>Reporter: CHINESE
EDUCATION IS CHANGING.
AS MORE AMERICAN CHRISTIAN
SCHOOLS OPEN NEW LOCATIONS
IN CHINA.
DESPITE GOVERNMENT
RESTRICTIONS OF RELIGION,
AMERICAN AND CHINESE
CHRISTIANS ARE WORKING
TOGETHER TO PROVIDE
CHINESE STUDENTS WITH
EDUCATION BASED ON
BIBLICAL TRUTHS.
SEAN ELGOT IS THE HEAD
MASTER OF A CHRISTIAN
ACADEMY OF VIRGINIA.
IN 2014, A U.S. EDUCATION
ASSOCIATION SELECTED THE
ACADEMY AS ONE OF THE BEST
CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS IN THE
UNITED STATES.
ELGOT AND
HIS WIFE FELT
GOD GAVE
THEM A NEW
MISSION TO COMPLETE.
>>I
FELT
LIKE
THE LORD
SAID, ARE YOU
WILLING
TO
BE LIKE DANIEL, IN THE
MIDST OF THOSE WHO ARE NOT
TOTALLY SAVED?
BUT YOU WILL MAKE AN
IMPRESSION SOVEREIGNLY,
AND ANY WOULD WANT YOU TO
MAKE AN IMPRESSION.
>>Reporter: ELGOT SAYS
ALTHOUGH MANY CHINESE ARE
ATHEIST OR BUDDHISTS, MOST
PARENTS ARE OPEN TO
CHRISTIANITY.
SOME EVEN ENCOURAGE THEIR
KIDS TO LEARN ALL THEY CAN
ABOUT CHRIST.
>>MOST OF THEM WILL TELL
US, PLEASE INTRODUCE OUR
CHILDREN TO
YOUR FAITH —
MAYBE THEY’LL CALL IT YOUR
RELIGION — THEY MIGHT SAY
YOUR GOD, OR TO JESUS —
BECAUSE WE WANT OUR SONS
AND WE WANT OUR DAUGHTERS
TO BELIEVE IN SOMETHING.
>>Reporter: STUDENTS
ARE TAUGHT CHRISTIAN
VALUES IN THE CLASSROOM.
THEIR TEACHERS SPEND
QUALITY TIME WITH THEM IN
HOPES OF LEADING THEM TO
CHRIST.
>>THEY’RE VERY, VERY
OPEN, AND IT IS MUCH
EASIER TO WITNESS TO A LOT
OF THESE CHINESE THAN TO A
LOT OF AMERICANS BECAUSE
THEY’RE COMING LIKE BLANK
SLATES WHEN THEY COME
HERE.
SO THEY DO GET EXCITED
ABOUT CHRISTIAN EVENTS.
>>Reporter:
AND YOUNG
CHILDREN REPRESENTS THE
ONLY ONES GETTING EXCITED
ABOUT CHRISTIAN EDUCATION.
CHINESE MILLENNIALS ARE
ALSO OPEN AND
ENTHUSIASTIC.
SOME REALIZE THE BIBLE IS
NOT JUST A BOOK.
IT IS A WAY OF LIVING WITH
PURE JOY AND HAPPINESS.
BESIDES REACHING ACADEMIC
SECRETARY, CRYSTAL AND
WONG ALSO ACCEPTED CHRIST.
BIBLICAL VALUES FROM THE
CLASSROOM TOUCHED THEIR
HEART.
>>BEFORE ATTENDING THIS
SCHOOL, I KNEW LITTLE
ABOUT JESUS.
WHILE ATTENDING THE
CLASSES, I LEARNED SO MUCH
ABOUT GOD AND HIS LOVE FOR
HIS CHILDREN.
MY WHOLE FAMILY ARE
CHRISTIANS TODAY.
>>I ALSO ENJOYED HAVING
ONE-ON-ONE CONVERSATION
WITH THE TEACHERS.
WHEN THEY PRAYED WITH ME,
I FELT SO MUCH BETTER.
>>Reporter: AS MORE
CHINESE STUDENTS ENROLL IN
CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS, CHINESE
PARENTS ARE GETTING
INVOLVED WITH THE LOCAL
CHRISTIANS.
MAINLY THEY SAY THEIR
KIDS’ LIFE CHANGED AND
THEY COULDN’T HELP BUT ASK
WHAT IS BEHIND IT.
>>I SEE THE TEACHERS
TEACH MY KIDS ABOUT
CHRISTIAN PIN PRINCIPLES, AND
I WONDER IF I SHOULD
LEARN, TOO.
>>Reporter: CHINESE
PARENTS BELIEVE ONE OF
THEIR
MOST IMPORTANT JOBS
IS TO RAISE THEIR CHILDREN
TO LEAD SUCCESSFUL LIVES.
MORE AND MORE FAMILIES ARE
TURNING TO CHRISTIANITY.
U.S. CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS ARE
NOT ONLY HOPING TO ENROLL
MORE CHINESE MILLENNIALS,
THEY ARE HOPING MORE
CHINESE PARENTS WILL LEARN
ABOUT JESUS.
>>WE WERE IN FAITH THAT
THE OPPORTUNITY WAS GOING
TO ARRIVE, THAT GOD WAS
GOING TO BRING ABOUT A
CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.
IT IS TOO HARD FOR US TO
DO.
WE KNEW THIS WAS A GOD
THING.
>>Reporter: MUNG FE LI
FOR CBN NEWS, BEIJING,
CHINA.
>>George: YOU CAN
SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS OF
HOW GOD IS AT WORK IN THE
WORLD.
SIMPLY GO TO OUR
“CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS” WEB
PAGE ON CBN NEWS AND SHARE
THIS STORY ON YOUR
Facebook PAGE.
WE’LL BE BACK RIGHT AFTER
THIS.
>>George: AND FINALLY
ON THE BROADCAST THIS
WEEK, AFTER 200 YEARS, THE
SITE MANY BELIEVED TO BE
JESUS’ TOMB IS GETTING
CRITICAL RENOVATIONS.
IT IS ALL BECAUSE OF A
RARE AGREEMENT BETWEEN
RELIGIOUS LEADERS WHO TAKE
CARE OF THE CHURCH OF THE
HOLY SE SEPLACHUR.
>>Chris: THIS IS THE
PLACE WHERE MANY BELIEVE
JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED,
BURIED, AND ROSE FROM THE
DEAD.
THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF
THOUSANDS OF PILGRIMS WHO
VISIT THE CHURCH EACH
YEAR.
THE ROMAN EMPEROR,
CONSTANTINE, BUILT THE
CHURCH IN THE 17th
CENTURY.
IT HAS BEEN RECONSTRUCTED
MANY TIMES.
THE LAST REPAIR WORK
HAPPENED IN 1810, WHEN THE
MAUSOLEUM WAS REBUILT
FOLLOWING A FIRE.
>>ALSO, THE EARTHQUAKE OF
1927, THERE WAS A KIND OF
DAMAGE AROUND IT.
>>Chris: NOTHING
HAPPENED THEN BECAUSE AS
THIS TOUR GUIDE TOLD US,
THE GREEK ORTHODOX, ROMAN
CATHOLIC AND ARAMEAN
ORTHODOX COULDN’T AGREE ON
THE REPAIRS.
>>THERE WAS ALWAYS A KIND
OF COMPETITION BETWEEN THE
DIFFERENT DENOMINATIONS.
WHO WILL HAVE THE HONOR TO
PRAY MORE IN SUCH A PLACE,
OR TO HAVE A BIGGER PART
OR TO BE THE HONOR OF
SERVING THE HOLY PLACE.
>>Chris: NOW THAT
LEADERS HAVE PUT THEIR
COMPETITION BESIDE, THIS
PROFESSOR WILL LEAD THE
RESTORATION PROJECT.
>>WE WILL REMOVE THE
MARBLE SLABS, THE STONE
SLABS.
WE WILL INJECT GROUT.
THAT MEANS WE WILL DEVELOP
A UNIFIED STRUCTURE.
THAT ALL OF THE LAYERS
WILL BEHAVE STRUCTURALLY
AS ONE.
AND AFTER REPAIRING IT
WITH NEW COMPOSITE AND
FORMING MORTARS, WE WILL
RE-ADJUST THE SLATS.
>>Reporter: THE THREE
DENOMINATIONS AND JORDAN’S
KING ABDULLAH WILL PUT UP
MORE THAN $3 MILLION FOR
THE WORK, WHICH SHOULD BE
COMPLETE BY MARCH 2017.
CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,
IN JERUSALEM’S OLD CITY.
>>George: IT TRULY IS A
RARE AGREEMENT.
OKAY, FOLKS.
THAT IS IT FOR THIS WEEK’S
EDITION OF “CHRISTIAN
WORLD NEWS.”
UNTIL NEXT WEEK, FROM ALL
OF US HERE, GOOD-BYE AND
GOD BLESS YOU.
