Christian World News – March 17, 2017


>>George: THIS WEEK ON
“CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS”…
>>THE CONNECTION IS THESE
ARE WITCH DOCTORS, WHO
COME AND TELL PEOPLE WHO
WANT TO GET RICH, YOU KNOW
TO GET RICH, YOU NEED TO
SACRIFICE HUMAN BLOOD.
>>George: OUR EXCLUSIVE
STORY ON CHILD SACRIFICE
IN UGANDA.
MEET THE MINISTER WHO IS
MIGHTING TO END THIS
DEMONIC PRACTICE WHILE HE
HELPS HEAL THE SURVIVORS.
>>Wendy: PLUS…AS
THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIAN
REFUGEES WAIT FOR AMERICA
TO OPEN ITS DOORS, WE’LL
INTRODUCE YOU TO ONE
BUSINESSMAN WHO TOOK A
CHANCE ON A REFUGEE
COMMUNITY AND FOUND A
BLESSING HE COULD NEVER
HAVE IMAGINED.
>>George: AND IT’S A
NATION OF 23 MILLION
PEOPLE, AND VERY FEW HAVE
HEARD THE NAME OF JESUS.
NOW THESE TWO MISSIONARIES
ARE HOPING TO MAKE HIM
KNOWN IN THEIR LIFETIME.
>>George: HELLO,
EVERYONE, AND WELCOME TO
THIS WEEK’S EDITION OF
“CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS.”
I’M GEORGE THOMAS.
>>Wendy: AND I’M WENDY
GRIFFITH.
HERE IN AMERICA, PRESIDENT
TRUMP IS TRYING TO
RESTRICT THE FLOW OF
REFUGEES TO PROTECT THE
COUNTRY FROM MUSLIM
TERRORISTS.
BUT SOME SAY IT IS ALSO
KEEPING OUT CHRISTIAN
REFUGEES WHO ARE STUCK IN
ISLAMIC NATIONS.
DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.
>>Dale: JEN, HER
HUSBAND AND FIVE CHILDREN
HAVE SPENT YEARS CLEARING
ALL OF THE REFUGEE HURTLES
TO COME TO THE U.S., BLOOD
TESTS, FINGERPRINTS, AND
BACKGROUND CHECKS.
WHILE THESE CHRISTIANS
WAIT IN THIS REFUGEE
CENTER IN MALAYSIA, HOPING
FOR THE U.S. EMBASSY TO
CALL, SHE READS HER MOST
PRIZED POSSESSION, HER
BIBLE.
SHE AND HER FAMILY DR
OFIV A
DS TAT PPENING
NOW SEEM SLIM.
>>Through Translator:
AMERICA IS REALLY OUR
FATHER LAND IN TERMS OF
RELIGION.
THEY SENT THEIR
MISSIONARIES TO OUR
COUNTRY AND TAUGHT US TO
BE CHRISTIANS.
AND NOW WE HAVE TO BE
SAFE.
ALL WE WANT IS TO BE SAFE.
FOR US, GOING TO AMERICA
IS LIKE CHILDREN GOING TO
THEIR PARENTS AND IT IS A
SAFE PLACE FOR US.
>>Dale: PRESIDENT
TRUMP’S TRAVEL BAN WOULD
MEAN 60,000 LESS REFUGEE
VISAS, AND ONE OF THE
GROUPS MOST IMPACTED OR
MYANMAR CHRISTIANS, WHO
HAVE FLED PERSECUTION IN
THEIR HOME LAND.
>>MYANMAR IS NOT SAFE FOR
US.
THEY KILL PEOPLE AND SEND
PEOPLE TO JAIL BECAUSE OF
THEIR RELIGION.
THEY BAN OUR PRAYER.
THE MILITARY WOULD COME IN
OUR HOUSES TO STOP THE
PRAYER SERVICES.
MYANMAR IS UNSAFE AND WE
CANNOT GO BACK.
>>Dale: SO JEN AND HER
FAMILY KEEP STUDYING
ENGLISH, HOPING THAT THEIR
PRAYER TO LIVE IN AMERICA
WILL BE ANSWERED.
DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.
>>George: SOME
EVANGELICAL LEADERS HERE
IN THE U.S. ARE URGING THE
TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO
WELCOME REFUGEES TO OUR
COUNTRY.
SCOTT ARBITER ACKNOWLEDGED
THAT THE WORLD IS A SCARY
PLACE, BUT SAYS, HOWEVER,
WE CAN BALANCE SAFETY AND
COMPASSION.
HE POINTED OUT IF JESUS
HAD NOT RISKED HIS OWN
SAFETY, QUOTE, “THERE
WOULD HAVE BEEN NO MANGER,
NO CROSS, AND NO
RESURRECTION, AND I WOULD
BE DEAD IN MY SINS.”
>>Wendy: A GOOD POINT.
REFUGEES AND IMMIGRANTS
ARE OFTEN A BLESSING TO
THEIR NEW COUNTRIES.
THAT’S WHAT ONE COLORADO
BUSINESS OWNER DISCOVERED.
>>George: WHEN JAMES’
COMPANY STARTED GOING
DOWNHILL, HE TOOK AN
UNUSUAL STEP.
AND AS STEPHANIE RIGGS
EXPLAINS, IT TURNED OUT TO
BE THE SOLUTION TO HIS
PROBLEM.
>>Reporter: THIS PALATE
COMPANY MAKES A SIMPLE
PRODUCT.
THESE PALATES TRANSPORT
MOST OF WHAT WE USE EVERY
DAY.
BUT THEY ALSO SERVE AN
EVEN GREATER PURPOSE FOR
SECOND-GENERATION BUSINESS
OWNER JAMES.
>>WE HAD A TREMENDOUS
AMOUNT OF TURNOVER.
THAT MEANS YOU’RE HIRING
SIX TO 10 PEOPLE A WEEK
TRYING TO STAFF A PLACE.
WE REACHED A PLACE IN TIME
WHERE I FELT THIS BUSINESS
COULDN’T GROW, AND IT WAS
FROM A STAFFING
PERSPECTIVE.
I COULDN’T SEE THE
POSSIBILITY OF EXPANDING
AND TAKING ON EXTRA
RESPONSIBILITY.
BECAUSE WE WERE HAVING A
HARD TIME GETTING PEOPLE
TO COME TO THE FRONT DOOR.
AT THE SAME TIME GOD IS
WORKING ON ME AND TENDER
RISINTENDERIZING ME, I DECIDED
TO LOOK AT THE REFUGEE
COMMUNITY AS A SOURCE OR
STREAM FOR EMPLOYEES.
>>Reporter: FROM
STAGNATION TO A VIBRANT,
THRIVING BUSINESS, THAT
STARTED WITH SEVEN
REFUGEES FROM BURMA TO NOW
81, AND THEY ARE LOYAL,
GRATEFUL EMPLOYEES.
I THINK IT IS GREAT TO SAY
THIS PALATE COMPANY HAS A
NEW PURPOSE: IT’S PEOPLE.
>>WHAT WE DECIDED TO DO,
PRAYING INTO THE PEOPLE,
STARTED SHOWING UP ON THE
BOTTOM LINE.
PROFITABILITY CHANGED.
IT WAS A MOMENT IN TIME
WHERE I FELT GOD KISSED ME
ON THE FOREHEAD AS A CHILD
OF HIS, AND SAID, SILLY
LITTLE BOY, THAT DIDN’T
JUST HAPPEN.
THIS ISN’T COINCIDENCE.
I HAD MY HAND ON YOU AND
THERE WAS A PLAN.
IT IS VERY EXCITING TO
START TO SEE MY
RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM WORK
THAT WAY.
>>Reporter: THIS PALATE
COMPANY EVOLVED INTO THIS
FACTORY OF HOPE, FILLED
WITH MEN AND WOMEN WHO
OTHERWISE WOULD BE LIVING
IN POVERTY.
>>THE BOSS GIVES US AN
OPPORTUNITY.
THEY LET US COME FROM
BURMA.
THEY PAY US GOOD MONEY AND
GIVE US GOOD JOBS.
>>A LOT OF TIMES BUSINESS
OWNERS WANT YOU TO LEAVE
YOUR PROBLEMS AT HOME,
GIVE YOU A HARD DAY’S WORK
AND LEAVE.
I USED TO BE THAT WAY.
NOW WE ENCOURAGE THEM TO
BRING THEIR PROBLEMS.
WHAT DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND?
WHAT ARE YOU CONFUSED
ABOUT?
WE BRING IN LENDERS AND
HELP THEM UNDERSTAND
CREDIT.
WE HELP THEM BUY HOMES BY
GETTING THEM INVOLVED IN
THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN
COLORADO.
WE’RE FUMIGATING THEIR
HOUSES FOR THEM BECAUSE
THEY’RE IN LOW-INCOME
AREAS WHERE THEY’VE GOT
DIFFERENT KINDS OF BUGS.
THESE ARE MINISTRY
OPPORTUNITIES FOR US TO GO
IN AND DO SOMETHING.
>>THEY TAKES CARE OF MANY
PEOPLE FROM THE REFUGEE
CAMP.
I WORKED HERE FOR 30
YEARS, MAYBE MORE.
>>WHAT I STARTED TO DO
WAS PRAY TO THE OWNER OF
THIS COMPANY AND SAID,
LORD, BRING TO MY COMPANY
WHO YOU WANT TO WORK HERE,
WHO YOU WANT TO HAVE
REFUGE.
I FEEL VERY BLESSED THAT
THE BURMESE PEOPLE HAVE
BEEN INTRODUCED INTO MY
COMPANY.
I CAN GO RIGHT OUTSIDE MY
OFFICE DOOR AND IMPACT
FAMILIES AND LIVES AND
MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
>>Reporter: HIS FATHER
STARTED THIS BUSINESS IN
1974.
HE HAD NO IDEA IT WOULD
BECOME A PLACE OF REFUGE,
PRODUCING MORE THAN THESE
PALATES, BUT PEOPLE WITH
HOPE.
CBN NEWS I IN DENVER.
>>Wendy: UP NEXT, THEY
COULDN’T BE ANY FURTHER
FROM THEIR HOMES AND
FAMILIES, BUT THESE TWO
MISSIONARIES ARE
DISCOVERING THE BLESSING
OF GIVING IT ALL UP FOR
CHRIST.
>>Wendy: IN BANGLADESH,
MUSLIMS ARE LEAVING ISLAM
TO FOLLOW JESUS.
BANGLADESH IS THE FOURTH
LARGEST MUSLIM NATION IN
THE ENTIRE WORLD.
BUT THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS
HAVE BECOME CHRISTIANS IN
THE LAST TWO YEARS.
CBN NEWS RECENTLY SPOKE TO
JIM JACOBSON OF CHRISTIAN
FREEDOM INTERNATIONAL TO
LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT IS
HAPPENING.
>>BANGLADESH IS ON THE
PATH TO BECOMING A
CHRISTIAN NATION IN OUR
LIFETIME BECAUSE YOU SEE
IT GROWING, HOUSE
CHURCHES, WHERE ONE PASTOR
IS PASTORING FIVE OR SIX
CHURCHES.
A PASTOR WHO USED TO BE A
POLICE OFFICER TOLD ME
THAT IN THE HILLSIDE
AREAS, THAT OVER THE PAST
TWO YEARS SOME 20,000
MUSLIMS HAVE CONVERTED TO
CHRISTIANITY.
AND THAT’S JUST ONE
EXAMPLE, ONE STORY, ONE
TESTIMONY.
SO SOMETHING IS GOING ON.
AND, AGAIN, IT’S LIKE A
WILDFIRE.
>>Wendy: MANY MUSLIM
CONVERTS FACE VIOLENT
PERSECUTION AND REJECTION
FROM THEIR FAMILIES.
BUT THEY REFUSE TO GIVE UP
THEIR NEW FAITH.
PLEASE, WE ASK THAT YOU
KEEP THEM IN PRAYER.
>>George: YOU KNOW, FOR
MOST PEOPLE TRAVELLING IS
A WAY TO TAKE A BREAK FROM
THEIR EVERYDAY, ORDINARY
LIVES, BUT SOMETIMES LIFE
THROWS US A SURPRISE.
>>Wendy: THAT’S WHAT
HAPPENED TO RICHARD AND
JESSE ROBERTS WHEN THEIR
ONCE IN A LIFETIME
VACATION TURNED INTO A
LIFETIME CALLING.
MUNG FE LI HAS THEIR
STORY.
>>Reporter: THIS IS A
SMALL ISLAND NATION,
ENRICHED BA BY UNIQUE
CULTURE.
IT MAKES TAIWAN AN
ATTRACTIVE TOURIST SPOT.
BUDDHISM AND DAOISM ARE
THE MAJOR RELIGIONS OF
TAIWAN.
>>MOST OF THE PEOPLE GO
TO TEMPLE AND THEY LOOK
FOR GOOD LUCK AND FORTUNE.
>>Reporter: TEMPLES IN
TAIWAN ARE PULL OF
FASCINATING DESIGNS AND
TRADITIONAL SYMBOLS.
CHURCHES ARE HARD TO BE
FOUND IN THE NORTHEAST
REGION OF THE ISLAND, AND
CHRISTIANITY IS NEARLY
NON-EXISTENT.
OF TAIWAN’S 23 MILLION
PEOPLE, 6% ARE CHRISTIANS.
MORE THAN 28% FOLLOW
BUDDHISM.
LESS THAN 3% CLAIM NO
RELIGION AT ALL.
>>WE WILL HAVE A MINI
PRAYER.
>>Reporter: THESE
AMERICAN CHRISTIANS ARE ON
THE MOVE.
THEIR MISSION: INTRODUCING
THE TAIWANESE TO CHRIST.
RICHARD ROBERTS AND HIS
WIFE, JESSE, MOVED TO
TAIWAN FROM AMERICA
GEORGIA.
THEY FOUND OUT THAT SOME
PEOPLE HAD NEVER HEARD OF
JESUS DURING THEIR FIRST
TRIP.
>>THEY DON’T HAVE A LOT
OF INFORMATION ON CHRIST
AND HOW CHRIST IS THEIR
SAVIOR AND CAN BE THEIR
SALVATION.
>>Reporter: THEN AFTER
SOME RESEARCH, THEY MADE A
BIG DECISION: PLANTING
CHURCHES FOR JESUS.
>>WE WANT TO SHARE THE
GOSPEL IN A HOME SETTING,
IN A SCHOOL SETTING, IN A
LIBRARY SETTING, IN
WHATEVER KIND OF SETTING
THEY CAN FIND, IN A PARK,
WHATEVER, TO SHARE THE
GOSPEL.
LET PEOPLE SEE JESUS IN
THEM.
>>Reporter: ROBERTS
FAMILIARIZED THEMSELVES
WITH THE LOCAL PEOPLE.
THEY TRAVELLED FROM ONE
PLACE TO ANOTHER TO
RECRUIT MORE HELPERS.
>>THEY CAN TEACH ENGLISH.
THEY CAN SHARE THE GOSPEL.
THEY CAN SHARE THEIR
FAITH.
THEY CAN BECOME GOOD
FRIENDS WITH SOME OF THE
LOCAL KIDS AND TEENAGERS
THAT ARE THERE.
AND THEN, OF COURSE, OUR
HOPE IS WHEN THAT
FRIENDSHIP IS BUILT, THAT
THEY WILL START BRINGING
THEM TO THE CHURCHES THAT
WE ARE ALSO PLANTING AT
THE SAME TIME.
>>Reporter: RICHARD’S
DAUGHTER IS EXCITED TO
SERVE JESUS IN TAIWAN.
>>I JUST FELT LIKE I WAS
SO HAPPY AND GRATEFUL TO
MY PARENTS THAT THEY MOVED
US HERE TO BECOME
MISSIONARIES BECAUSE I
FELT, LIKE, I GOT TO — I
GOT TO WAKE UP EVERY DAY
AND PARTICIPATE IN
DIFFERENT THINGS THAT GOD
WAS DOING IN OUR LIVES.
>>Reporter: GRADUALLY
YOUNGER TAIWANESE ARE
EXPERIENCING CHURCH.
FOR MANY OF THEM, JESUS
ONLY BELONGS TO THE WEST.
SOME AMERICANS HAVE LEFT
THEIR HOMES AND ASSIST IN
THE MISSION.
>>THIS IS IN SOUTH
GEORGIA, AND I JUST FELT,
OKAY, GOD, I’M BEING
CALLED TO THE ASIAN
PEOPLE, AND I LOVE IT.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT HERE.
I LOVE THE CULTURE, AND I
LOVE THE PEOPLE.
>>Reporter: LISA AND
HER TEAM OFTEN PLAY GAMES
AND SHARE FOOD WITH THE
KIDS.
THE CHILDREN ALWAYS HAVE A
GREAT TIME.
OVER TIME THE CHURCH BEGAN
TO DEVELOP BIGGER GOALS.
THEY STARTED TO RECRUIT
STUDENTS FROM U.S.
COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES.
AMERICAN STUDENTS WERE
INSPIRED BY THE ROBERTS.
THEY BELIEVE THE LORD PUT
THEM IN THIS MINISTRY FOR
SPECIAL PURPOSES.
>>GOD GAVE ME A DREAM OF
ME RIDING A BIKE IN
TAIWAN.
SO I CAME ON OVER TO
TAIWAN.
I FIGURED IT WOULD BE KIND
OF SILLY NOT TO.
>>Reporter: IN
ADDITION, THE STAFF
UNDERSTANDS THIS IS AN
OPPORTUNE TIME FOR
TAIWANESE TO HEAR ABOUT
CHRIST.
>>THE GOSPEL IS REALLY
IMPORTANT HERE BECAUSE THE
PEOPLE ARE LOST.
THEY MAY THINK IT IS GOING
TO GET THEM INTO HEAVEN,
BUT WITHOUT JESUS AND
PROCLAIMING THAT HE IS
THEIR SAVIOR, IT IS NOT
GOING TO DO ANY GOOD.
IT IS HURTFUL SEEING
PEOPLE TRYING TO BE GOOD,
THINKING THEY’RE GOING TO
GET TO HEAVEN, AND IN THE
END THEY MAY NOT.
>>Reporter: NOTHING CAN
REPLACE THEIR FAITH IN THE
LORD AND DEDICATION TO THE
MINISTRY.
IN THE LONG RUN, BESIDES
THEIR HARD WORK AND
DEDICATION, ROBERTS AND
THE TEAM BELIEVE PRAYER
WILL CHANGE THE LIVES OF
MILLIONS IN TAIWAN.
MUNG FE LI, CBN NEWS.
>>George: UP NEXT IN
UGANDA, CHILD SACRIFICE IS
A THRIVING INDUSTRY.
WE’LL MEET THE COURAGEOUS
PASTOR WHO IS FIGHTING THE
EVIL AND HEALING THE
SURVIVORS.
>>Wendy: WELCOME BACK.
GEORGE, AS YOU KNOW, EACH
YEAR HUNDREDS OF UGANDAN
CHILDREN ARE KIDNAPPED AND
MURDERED AS PART OF A
HUMAN SACRIFICE BUSINESS.
>>George: IT IS
UNBELIEVABLE.
BUT I MET WITH A PASTOR
WHO IS TEAMING UP WITH
POLICE AND POLITICIANS TO
STOP THIS BRUTAL PRACTICE.
WE WANT TO WARN YOU THAT
SOME OF THE CONTENT IS
DISTURBING.
HERE IS MY EXCLUSIVE STORY
FROM UGANDA’S CAPITAL CITY
OF KOMPALA.
>>>IT IS A LITTLE AFTER
2:00 IN THE MORNING, ABOUT
AN HOUR’S DRIVE SOUTH OF
KOMPALA.
CBN NEWS HAS JOINED
UNDERCOVER DETECTIVES,
ARMED POLICE, AND A
PASTOR, HUNTING FOR A
WITCH DOCTOR ACCUSED OF
KIDNAPPING AND KILLING
CHILDREN.
>>THE WITCH DOCTORS
BELIEVE WHEN YOU KIDNAP A
CHILD, YOU GET WEALTH, YOU
GET PROTECTION.
>>George: THIS PASTOR
LEADS THE SEARCH.
HE RUNS A CHILD CARE
MINISTRIES, A CHRISTIAN
EFFORT TO STAMP OUT CHILD
SACRIFICE IN UGANDA.
HE DESCRIBES THE WITCH
DOCTORS’ BRUTAL RITUALS.
>>WHEN THEY GET A CHILD,
MOST TIMES THEY CUT THE
NECK.
THEY TAKE THE BLOOD OUT.
THEY CUT THE GENITALS OR
ANY BODY ORGANS THAT THE
SPIRITS WANT.
IN A SENSE, IT INVOLVES
THE CHILD DYING.
>>George: A FEW HOURS
IN, THE TRAIL FOR THE
KILLER GOES COLD.
PASTOR PETERS SAYS THESE
BRUTAL CRIMES HAPPEN
ALMOST EACH MONTH.
>>THERE VERY FEW WHO
SURVIVE.
MOST OF THEM DIE.
>>I HAD HIGH HOPES AND
DREAMS FOR CLIVE.
>>George: RACHEL’S
THREE-YEAR-OLD SON, CLIVE,
DISAPPEARED JUNE 2, 2015,
WHILE PLAC I PLAYING IN THE
BACKYARD OF THEIR HOME.
CBN NEWS MET HER THE DAY
POLICE TOLD HER WHAT
HAPPENED TO HER SON.
>>I HAVE NEVER EVEN HEARD
OF CHILD SACRIFICE.
I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW WHAT
THE PHRASE MEANT.
>>George: THIS
DETECTIVE TOOK US TO THE
SPOT, NOT TOO FAR FROM HIM
HOME, WHERE THEY FOUND
CLIVE’S REMAINS, IN HIS
PIT TOILET, FILLED WITH
HUMAN FECES.
HE SAID THE KEY SUSPECT
TURNED OUT TO BE HER
NEIGHBOR, A WEALTHY
BUSINESSMAN WHO ALLEGEDLY
HIRED TWO MEN TO KIDNAP
AND MUTILATE CLIVE’S BODY,
BELIEVING THAT THE ACT
WOULD BRING GOOD LUCK TO
HIS NEW HOTEL PROJECT.
THE DETECTIVE SAID THE
SUSPECT PAID THE
EQUIVALENT OF $1400 FOR
CLIVE’S LIFE.
>>HOW COULD SOMEONE BE
ABLE TO SACRIFICE A
3-YEAR-OLD KID?
>>George: CHILD
SACRIFICE IN UGANDA TODAY
IS SO SERIOUS AND
WIDESPREAD THAT THE
GOVERNMENT HAS SET UP AN
ANTI-CHILD SACRIFICE AND
HUMAN TRAFFICKING
TASKFORCE.
THIS CHIEF SAYS IN
ADDITION TO DECAPITATION,
WITCH DOCTORS OFTEN SLICE
THE CHILD’S TONGUE AND MIX
IT WITH HERBS FOR SPECIAL
POWERS.
>>THE TONGUE IS USED
AGAINST ENEMIES.
>>George: MIKE IS
UGANDA’S TOP LAW
ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL,
EQUIVALENT OF AMERICA’S
ATTORNEY-GENERAL.
HE SAYS SUPERSTITION AND
THE DESIRE TO GET RICH
QUICK CONTRIBUTE TO THE
HIGH CHILD SACRIFICE RATES
IN HIS COUNTRY.
>>THE CONNECTION IS THESE
WITCH DOCTORS COME AND
TELL PEOPLE WHO WANT TO
GET RICH THAT IN ORDER TO
GET RICH, YOU NEED TO
SACRIFICE HUMAN BLOOD.
>>George: THESE TWO BEST
FRIENDS ARE FORTUN FORTUNATE TO
BE ALIVE, BUT BEAR THE
PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL
SCARS OF THEIR PAST.
THE THREE ARE CHILDSACRIFICE RVIVS.
A FEW YEARS BACK, CANANI
AND HIS YE-O

THEM TO HEAR HIM.

HIS AND THEN
CASTRATED.
EMNED A COMA FO
TWO MONTHS AFTER HIS MORAL
MIRACULOUS RESCUE.
THIS MAN HAD TO HAVEIS
GENITALS RECONSTRUCTED
WITH SKIN FROM HIS
FOREARM.
THE BOYS SAY THEY
ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER TO
LOOK PAST THEIR PHYSICAL
CHALLENGES.
>>GOD IS HELPING US IN
MANY DIFFERENT WAYS.
WHEN WE THINK ABOUT WHAT
HAPPENED TO US, WE PRAY
AND ASK GOD THAT THIS
NEVER HAPPEN TO ANYBODY
ELSE.
>>George: THE THREE
BOYS ARE NOW UNDER PASTOR
PETERS’ CARE.
THEY ARE PROVIDING
LONG-TERM FINANCIAL AND
MEDICAL CARE FOR SURVIVORS
OF CHILD SACRIFICE.
>>WE WANT TO SAV SEE THAT THE
LIFE OF A CHILD WHO HAS
SURVIVED, THAT THEY’RE
FINANCIALLY SUPPORTED, AND
THEY ARE ABLE TO HEAL FROM
THE INJURIES, AND THEY CAN
HAVE A LIFE AFTER THAT.
>>George: RACHEL SAYS
LIFE WITHOUT CLIVE WILL
NEVER BE THE SAME.
STILL, SHE HAS A MESSAGE
FOR THE MEN WHO BRUTALLY
MURDERED HER 3-YEAR-OLD
SON.
>>BECAUSE OF MY FAITH IN
JESUS, I BELIEVE IN SECOND
CHANCES, AND I WOULD GIVE
IT TO THEM BECAUSE THERE
IS NOTHING I CAN DO TO
BRING CLIVE BACK.
MY MESSAGE TO THEM IS
CONFESS YOUR SINS AND COME
TO THE LORD, BECAUSE WHEN
YOU COME TO THE LORD, HE
WILL FORGIVE YOUR SINS.
>>Wendy: GEORGE, I
CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IS
HAPPENING IN TODAY’S
WORLD.
>>George: YEAH.
AND IT’S NOT JUST IN
UGANDA, BUT IT IS ACROSS
AFRICA.
