>>THIS WEEK ON “CHRISTIAN
WORLD NEWS,” THE MUSLIM
COUNTRY WHERE CHRISTIANITY
IS GROWING FASTER THAN
ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE
WORLD.
WE GIVE YOU EXCLUSIVE
ACCESS TO THE LIVES OF
CHRISTIANS WHO ARE RISKING
IT ALL.
PLUS…THE CONGRESSMAN WHO
SURVIVED A HORRIFIC
SHOOTING RETURNS TO
CAPITOL HILL AND THANKS
GOD FOR MIRACULOUSLY

>>>AND…FROM REFUGEE TO
ENTPRENEUR.
MEET THE IMMIGRANTS WHO
ARE JUMP-STARTING THE
ECONOMY ONE BUSINESS AT A
TIME.
>>WELCOME TO “CHRISTIAN
WORLD NEWS,” EVERYONE, I’M
WENDY GRIFFITH.
GEORGE THOMAS IS ON
ASSIGNMENT.
WELL, THIS MAY COME AS A
SURPRISE TO MANY OF YOU,
CHRISTIANITY IS GROWING
FASTER IN IRAN THAN IN ANY
OTHER COUNTRY IN THE
WORLD.
THE POPULATION THERE IS
OVERWHELMING MUSLIM, YET
TENS OF THOUSANDS ARE
ABANDONING THAT FAITH.
RECENTLY A GROUP OF
IRANIAN CHRISTIANS WERE
BAPTIZED, AND THEY INVITED
MY COLLEAGUE, GEORGE
THOMAS, TO DOCUMENT THE
SPECIAL OCCASION.
>>Reporter: ON A RECENT
FRIDAY, 600 MILES EAST OF
TEHRAN, NOT TOO FAR FROM
THE AFGHAN/TURKMENISTAN
BORDER, 20 IRANIANS
PREPARED FOR A SECRET
JOURNEY OUT OF THEIR
COUNTRY.
FOR THEIR SAFETY, WE’LL
CONCEALED THEIR IDENTITIES
AND CHANGED THEIR NAMES.
>>I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR
THIS MOMENT FOR NEARLY
NINE YEARS.
>>Reporter: THE MISSION
TOOK MONTHS TO PREPARE.
>>THIS WAS MY WISH BEFORE
I DIE.
>>Reporter: HE HELP
ARRANGE THEIR TRAVEL.
>>THE MOMENT THE IRANIAN
GOVERNMENT DISCOVERS
SOMEONE HAS CHANGED THEIR
RELIGION, THEY WILL TRY
EVERYTHING TO STOP THE
PERSON FROM SHARING THEIR
NEW FAITH WITH OTHERS.
>>Reporter: MOST OF
THESE NEW CHRISTIANS PAID
A PRICE FOR ABANDONING
ISLAM.
>>THE GOVERNMENT SCARES
CHRISTIANS, IMPRISONS
THEM, FIRES THEM FROM
THEIR JOBS, KICKS THEM OUT
OF SCHOOL AND MANY OTHER
TACTICS, ALL IN AN EFFORT
TO TOP THEM FROM
EVANGELIZING.
>>Reporter: HE KNEW
WHAT THEY WERE ABOUT TO
EXPERIENCE COULD LAND THEM
IN TROUBLE.
CBN NEWS MET THEM SHORTLY
AFTER THEY LEFT IRAN.
DUE TO THE SENSITIVE
NATURE OF THIS REPORT, CBN
NEWS HAS AGREED NOT TO
REVEAL OUR LOCATION, NOR
THE NAMES OF THE
INDIVIDUALS ASSOCIATED
WITH THIS STORY.
AND THIS IS WHY THEY LEFT
IRAN FOR A FEW DAYS.
FOR THE FIRST TIME, ALL 20
FOLLOWED CHRIST IN
BAPTISM.
*
>>IN IRAN, IF THE
GOVERNMENT FOUND OUT THAT
YOU WERE BAPTIZED, YOU
WOULD HAVE AUTOMATIC
IMPRISONMENT.
SO THEY CAME OUTSIDE FOR A
SPECIAL EVENT LIKE THIS.
>>Reporter: ONE BY ONE,
THE YOUNG AND OLD GOT
DUNKED.
MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN,
ALL OF WHOM REANNOUNCED
MUHAMMAD AND PROFESSED
THEIR FAITH IN JESUS
CHRIST IN A SWIMMING POOL
RENTED FOR THE OCCASION.
*
>>Reporter: THIS
53-YEAR-OLD WAITED 10
YEARS FOR THIS MOMENT.
>>I ACCEPTED CHRIST WHEN
I WAS 43 YEARS OLD.
THERE WAS NO WAY FOR ME TO
GET BAPTIZED IN IRAN,
BECAUSE OF THE DANGERS WE
FACE.
TODAY MY FAITH IS
COMPLETE.
>>Reporter: 16-YEAR-OLD
SARAH ACCEPTED CHRIST FOUR
YEARS AGO.
>>I BECAME A CHRISTIAN
AFTER SEEING JESUS IN A
DREAM.
AS I WAS GETTING BAPTIZED
THIS MORNING, I FELT THE
HOLY SPIRIT COME UPON ME
IN A NEW WAY.
ENTIR>>Reporter: ENTIRE
FAMILIES GOT BAPTIZED.
>>IT FEELS VERY GOOD.
I AM VERY HAPPY.
MY WHOLE FAMILY IS HAPPY.
>>Reporter: WHAT MAKES
THIS BAPTISM ALL THE MORE
SIGNIFICANT IS THAT THE
MAJORITY OF IRANIANS IN
ATTENDANCE HAVE COME FROM
THE NATION’S THIRD LARGEST
CITY OF MASHAD, WHICH IS
ONE OF SHI’A’S MOST
HOLIEST CITIES.
THIS WOMAN SAID THE QURAN
LEFT HER WITH MORE
QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS.
>>THIS WAS THE APPOINTED
TIME FOR ME TO GET
BAPTIZED.
ALSO, I KNOW GOD USED THE
LAST 11 YEARS TO GROW MY
FAITH, SO I COULD ENDURE
DIFFICULT TIMES.
>>Reporter: EXPERTS SAY
HER TESTIMONY, AND THAT OF
MANY OTHERS, POINTS TO
EVIDENCE THAT GOD IS
ADVANCING HIS KINGDOM IN
IRAN.
>>WE HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH
AN UNPRECEDENTED GROWTH OF
AN UNDERCHURCH ANYWHERE
ELSE BEFORE.
>>Reporter: MIKE
ANSARI, AN IRANIAN BY
BIRTH, IS DIRECTOR OF
OPTION AT HABOT TV.
IN 2006, IT BECAME THE
FIRST 24-HOUR FARSI
CHRISTIANS CHANNEL TO BEAM
CHRISTIAN SHOWS.
>>SOME OF THESE BELIEVERS
WAITED MANY, MANY YEARS TO
BE BAPTIZED.
THEY WANT TO TELL THE
WORLD THEY BELONG TO
JESUS.
THEY WANT TO TELL THE
WORLD WHAT WAS BEFORE IS
DEAD AND NOW THEY’RE A NEW
CREATION.
>>Reporter: HE SAYS
MANY IRANIANS, ESPECIALLY
THE YOUNG, FEEL
DISILLUSIONED WITH ISLAM,
AND RECORD NUMBERS ARE
TURNING TO THIS CHANNEL TO
LEARN MORE ABOUT
CHRISTIANITY.
>>ROUGHLY ABOUT
16 MILLION IRANIANS,
WITHIN THE LAST FOUR
MONTHS, HAVE VIEWED ONE OR
MORE OF OUR PROGRAMS ON A
SATELLITE TV, AND ALSO ON
THEIR GLOBAL DEVICES.
THAT ROUGHLY TRANSLATES TO
ABOUT 20% OF IRAN’S
POPULATION.
AND THAT IS AN
OVERWHELMING NUMBER.
>>Reporter: HABOT IS
NOW ONE OF FOUR SATELLITE
CHANNELS, BROADCASTING
CONTINUOUS CHRISTIAN
PROGRAMMING INTO IRAN.
>>SINCE WE DIDN’T KNOW
OTHER BELIEVERS OR WERE
PART OF A HOUSE CHURCH,
THERE WAS NOBODY TO HELP
US GROW IN OUR FAITH.
WE COULD ONLY GROW
WATCHING HABOT TV AND WITH
THE HOLY SPIRIT’S HELP, TO
GET STRONGER IN OUR FAITH.
>>Reporter: NATHAN LED
A HOUSE CHURCH IN IRAN FOR
10 YEARS, UNTIL HE WAS
FORCED TO FLEE BECAUSE OF
RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION.
NOW HE HOSTS A SHOW ON
HABOT TV, TEACHING FOLKS
HOW TO SAFELY RUN A HOUSE
CHURCH INSIDE IRAN.
>>GOD IS USING THIS
CHURCH HOUSE TO NOT ONLY
SHARE THE GOSPEL, BUT TO
EQUIP THE HOUSE CHURCHES.
>>Reporter: AND THOSE
WHO TRACK THE GROWTH OF
CHRISTIANITY AROUND THE
WORLD SAY THE ONE PLACE
WHERE THE FAITH IS GROWING
THE MOST IS IN THE ISLAMIC
REPUBLIC OF IRAN.
EDWARD SAYS THIS IS
NOTHING SHORT OF A
MIRACLE.
HIS BROTHER, AN ASSEMBLIES
OF GOD PASTOR, WAS
MURDERED IN IRAN FOR HIS
FAITH IN 1994.
HE SAYS NO MATTER HOW HARD
THE GOVERNMENT TRIES, IT
HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO STOP
THE SPREAD OF
CHRISTIANITY.
>>THEY ARE VERY SCARED OF
THE BIBLE, AND THEY
REALIZE MANY IRANIANS ARE
ATTRACTED TO CHRISTIANITY.
THE GOVERNMENT PERSECUTES
THEM, BUT MORE COME TO
FAITH.
>>Reporter: AFTER A FEW
DAYS OF FELLOWSHIP,
TEACHING, AND
ENCOURAGEMENT, THE 20
BELIEVERS RETURN TO IRAN
AND ADJUST, AND ARE
COMMITTED TO SHARING THE
LOVE OF CHRIST WITH THEIR
COUNTRYMEN.
HE SAYS THESE EXCLUSIVE
IMAGES SHOULD ENCOURAGE
CHRISTIANS THAT GOD IS
MOVING ON THE HEARTS OF
IRANIANS.
>>THERE IS A LOT OF GOOD
NEWS THAT IS COMING OUT OF
IRAN.
AND WE NEED TO CELEBRATE
THAT.
WE ARE HOPING THAT THE
RESULTS THAT ARE BEING
SHARED WITH THE CHURCH IN
THE WEST WILL ENCOURAGE
THE BODY OF CHRIST IN THE
WESTERN WORLD, THAT GOD IS
VERY MUCH ALIVE AMONG
MUSLIMS, AND HE IS DOING A
GREAT JOB.
*
>>Reporter: GEORGE
THOMAS, CBN NEWS,
SOMEWHERE IN THE
MOUNTAINS.
>>COMING UP, HE SURVIVED
A BLOODY SHOOTING.
SEE HOW HE GAVE THANKS TO
GOT IN THE U.S. CAPITAL.
>>A U.S. CONGRESSMAN
RETURNED TO WORK AT THE
CAPITAL THIS WEEK.
REPRESENTATIVE STEVE SCALE
SCALE ANSTEVESCALISE WERE INJURED FOUR
MONTHS AGO.
HE THANKED THOSE WHO
HELPED SAVE HIS LIFE,
INCLUDING OFFICERS DAVID
BAILEY AND CRYSTAL GRINER.
>>IT STARTS WITH GOD.
[APPLAUSE]
>>WHEN I WAS LAYING OUT
ON THAT BALL FIELD, THE
FIRST THING I DID ONCE I
WAS DOWN AND I COULDN’T
MOVE ANYMORE, I JUST
STARTED TO PRAY.
IT GAVE ME AN UNBELIEVABLE
SENSE OF CALM, KNOWING AT
THAT POINT IT WAS IN GOD’S
HANDS.
BUT I PRAYED FOR VERY
SPECIFIC THINGS.
AND I’LL TELL YOU, PRETTY
MUCH EVERY ONE OF THOSE
PRAYERS WAS ANSWERED.
THE POWER OF PRAYER IS
SOMETHING YOU JUST CANNOT
UNDERESTIMATE.
[APPLAUSE]
>>POWERFUL.
SCALISE CALLED HIS
RECOVERY MIRACULOUS.
NO DOUBT.
>>>ONE WEEK AFTER A
DEVASTATING CATEGORY 4
HURRICANE RAVAGED PUERTO
RICO, DESPERATE ISLAND
RESIDENTS ARE STARTING TO
GET SOME MUCH-NEEDED HELP.
U.S. GOVERNMENT AID IS NOW
GETTING IN, AND CBN’S
“OPERATION BLESSING” IS
PROVIDING THE PEOPLE OF
SAN JUAN WITH LIFE AND
HOPE.
GARY LANE SPOKE WITH
O.B.’S DAVID DARD ON THE
ISLAND.
>>Reporter: DAVID,
WHAT’S GOING ON THERE?
HOW ARE YOU HELPING?
>>GARY, THE NEEDS HERE
ARE ABSOLUTELY ENORMOUS.
IF YOU’VE SEEN THE IMAGES
COMING OUT OF PUERTO RICO,
YOU KNOW THERE IS SO MUCH
DESTRUCTION HERE.
AND WATER, FOOD, AND
HYGIENE SUPPLIES, ALL OF
THE ESSENTIALS NEED, ARE
SCARCER BY THE DAY.
TODAY WE STARTED WORKING
WITH A BAKERY, AND IT IS
ONE OF THE FIRST BAKERIES
OPENED HERE IN THE CAPITAL
OF SAN JUAN.
AND WE’RE WORKING TO START
BRINGING IN WATER
PURIFICATION EQUIPMENT
BECAUSE WATER IS A HUGE
NEED.
WHEN I FLEW IN, I CAME
WITH HUNDREDS OF SOLAR LAM
LAMPS, AND THEY ARE
PROVIDING COMFORT TO
THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE
TONIGHT.
CHILDREN WHO HAVE BEEN
SLEEPING IN COMPLETE PITCH
DARKNESS.
THERE IS NO ELECTRICITY ON
THIS ISLAND, AND THEY ARE
SAYING IT COULD BE MONTHS
BEFORE THE FIRST
CONNECTIONS START TO
APPEAR, EVEN HERE IN SAN
JUAN, THE CAPITAL CITY.
I JUST DON’T EVEN KNOW
WHERE TO START.
THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO
HERE.
>>Reporter: I WAS GOING
TO ASK YOU, DAVID, SOME
PEOPLE ARE SAYING IT IS
MUCH WORSE THAN WHAT VIDEO
SHOWS, WHEN YOU’RE
ACTUALLY THERE.
YOU CAN SEE THE
DEVASTATION.
HOW BAD IS IT?
>>GARY, AS I SAID, IT IS
ONE OF THE WORST DISASTERS
I’VE EVER SEEN, IN TERMS
OF THE SCALE.
THE HAITI EARTHQUAKE WAS
HORRIFIC AND THE DEATH
TOLL WAS HUGE, BUT IT WAS
FAIRLY LOCALIZED IN MANY
RESPECTS.
WHEREAS HERE YOU HAVE AN
ENTIRE ISLAND.
AND THIS IS A BIG ISLAND.
THIS ENTIRE ISLAND IS
FLATTENED.
THERE ARE HOMES DOWN
EVERYWHERE.
I’M IN THE CAPITAL CITY,
THE MOST PROSPEROUS CITY
IN THE ISLAND, AND EVEN
HERE IN SAN JUAN THERE IS
MEGA DESTRUCTION.
“OPERATION BLESSING”
REALLY NEEDS HELP IN
RESPONDING TO THIS ONE.
THESE ARE AMERICAN
CITIZENS HERE IN PUERTO
RICO.
THESE ARE OUR BROTHERS AND
SISTERS, AND THEY NEED US
RIGHT NOW.
THEY’RE REALLY IN A TIME
OF NEED HERE.
AND “OPERATION BLESSING”
IS HERE.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO
HELP US RESPOND.
>>Reporter: DAVID, I
KNOW THEY PROBABLY WELCOME
HAVING THE BREAD AND THE
WATER, AND ALSO THOSE
SOLAR LIGHTS.
HOW AMAZING ARE THOSE?
WHAT’S THE GREATEST NEED,
IN YOUR OPINION, RIGHT
NOW?
>>I THINK THE GREATEST
NEED IS WATER.
I WAS JUST AT AN OLD
PEOPLE’S HOME, AND THEIR
ONLY SUPPLY OF WATER WAS
IN A TRASH CAN.
THEY WERE SCOOPING OUT
BOTTLES OF WATER OUT OF
THIS TRASH CAN.
THAT WAS THEIR WATER
RESERVE.
THAT’S IN THE CAPITAL
CITY.
WE’RE HEARING REPORTS OF A
SEVERE LACK OF WATER RIGHT
ACROSS THE ISLAND.
AND ONE OF THE LOCAL
OFFICIALS YESTERDAY TOLD
ME SEPTEMBER 2001 CHANGED
THE WORLD, THE 11th, AND
THIS SEPTEMBER HAS CHANGED
PUERTO RICO FOREVER.
THEY DON’T FEEL LIKE THIS
ISLAND WILL EVER BE THE
SAME THAT IT WAS.
WHETHER THAT IS GOOD OR
BAD.
SHE JUST DON’T KNOW WHEN
THE END IS IN SIGHT FOR
THIS CRISIS.
THERE IS A VERY LONG ROAD
AHEAD FOR RECOVERY IN
PUERTO RICO.
>>Reporter: OKAY.
DAVID DARD, GOD BLESS YOU.
THANK YOU, DAVID.
>>THANKS, GARY.
>>AND PLEASE KEEP PRAYING
FOR THE FOLKS IN PUERTO
RICO.
THEY NEED TO SEE GOD’S
PROVISION.
>>>WELL, AN AMERICAN
PASTOR JAILED IN TURKEY,
IS HE EFFECTIVELY BEING
HELD HOSTAGE?
SPEAKING AT A PUBLIC
EVENT, PRESIDENT ERDOGAN
MENTIONED THE U.S.
GOVERNMENT’S REQUEST FOR
PASTOR ANDREW BRUNON’S
RELEASE.
AND THEN HE BROUGHT UP A
MUSLIM CLERIC LIVING IN
THE U.S. THAT IS ALSO A
POLITICAL RIVAL.
YOU GIVE HIM TO US, AND
WE’LL GIVE YOU THIS ONE,
ERDOGAN SAID.
SO FAR NO RESPONSE FROM
THE U.S. GOVERNMENT ON
THOSE REMARKS.
>>>UP NEXT, ECONOMIC
REVIVAL IN TWO RUST-BELT
CITIES, THROUGH IMMIGRANTS
AND FOOD.
SEE WHAT’S COOKING WHEN WE
COME BACK.
>>WELCOME BACK TO
“CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS.”
ANOTHER CHRISTIAN HAS BEEN
CONVICTED OF BLASPHEMY AND
SENTENCED TO DEATH IN
PAKISTAN.
THE DEAN JAMES WAS ACCUSED
OF SHARING MATERIAL ON A
PHONE APP RIDICULING THE
PROPHET MUHAMMAD.
HE TOLD CBN’S GARY LANE
THAT THE CHARGE AGAINST
NADEEN IS FALSE.
>>WHAT WE’VE BEEN TOLD BY
NADEEN JAMES IS QUITE
CLEARLY BECAUSE HE MARRIED
A MUSLIM WOMAN AND SHE CON
CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY,
IT CAUSED ANGST IN THE
COMMUNITY.
AND FOR THAT MARRIAGE, FOR
THE LOVE HE CHOSE FOR HIS
WOMAN, FOR THE COMMITMENT
HE MADE TO HER, AND FOR
HER FINDING CHRIST THROUGH
THAT MARRIAGE, HE HAS NOW
BEEN SENTENCED TO DEATH.
>>AND YOU CAN SEE THAT
FULL INTERVIEW ON GARY’S
PROGRAM CALLED “THE GLOBAL
LANE.”
>>>MANY CHRISTIANS FLEE
PAKISTAN SEEKING REFUGE IN
THE U.S.
IT IS NOT EASY BECAUSE
SOME FEAR A SECURITY RISK
FROM ANY REFUGEE COMING
FROM THE MUSLIM WORLD.
BUT CAITLIN BURKE
INTRODUCES US TO ONE WOMAN
WHO IS PART OF AN
OVERLOOKED SIDE OF THE
IMMIGRANT DEBATE: REFUGEES
WHO ARE BUILDING NEW LIVES
AND HELPING THEIR LOCAL
ECONOMIES.
>>Reporter: YOU’ UDICA, NEW
YORK, CALLS ITSELF A
HUMANITARIAN STATE.
>>IN THE ’50s, THEY
WERE ROBUST.
AND AS YOU PROGRESSED,
WHETHER IT BE THE KNITTING
MILLS OR THE IRON MILLS,
MIGRATED EITHER INTO GOING
SOUTH OR AS WE KNOW NOW,
IT IS GLOBAL AND THEY’RE
ACTUALLY OUT OF THE
COUNTRY.
THOSE JOBS LEFT AND SO DID
SOME OF OUR POPULATION.
>>Reporter: AFTER
DECADES OF DECLINE, THIS
RUST-BELT TOWN IS GROWING,
FUELED BY HIGHLY MOTIVATED
LABOR.
>>WITHOUT REFUGEES AND
IMMIGRANTS, WITHOUT AN
INCREASE IN POPULATION,
THERE IS NO RECOVERY.
>>Reporter: SHELLEY
CALLAHAN IS THE EXECUTIVE
DIRECTOR OF THE MOHAWK
VALLEY RESOURCE CENTER IN
UDICA.
>>IT IS A VERY AMERICAN
PROGRAM IN THE SENSE IT IS
A PULL YOURSELF UP BY YOUR
BOOT STRAPS SORT OF
PROGRAM.
GET A JOB, HIT THE GROUND
RUNNING.
EVEN IF YOU DON’T KNOW ANY
ENGLISH, THEY WORK AROUND
THAT WITH EMPLOYERS.
REFUGEES COME HERE OWING
THEIR AIRFARE BACK TO THE
FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
>>Reporter: ALI CAME TO
THE U.S. AS AN IRAQI
REFUGEE AND EVENTUALLY
SETTLED HERE.
>>IN MY COUNTRY, I OWNED
MY BUSINESS.
BUT BECAUSE OF THE WAR,
THE BUSINESS IS CLOSED.
AND THE DUST IS IN THERE.
>>Reporter: HE TOOK
SOME CLASSES AND GOT A JOB
QUICKLY.
BUT AFTER ONLY A FEW
WEEKS, HE REALIZED HE
WOULD RATHER USE HIS
SKILLS AS AN ENTREPRENEUR
TO OPEN A NEW RESTAURANT
IN UDICA.
>>I CALL IT HUMMUS TAB TAB
TABOULIL.
>>Reporter: A NEW
RESTAURANT AND TRAINING
PROGRAM CALLED “WITH LOVE”
TEACHES REFUGEES,
IMMIGRANTS, AND LOW INCOME

LAUNCH THEIR OWN FOOD

MANAGER AND CAME UP WITH
THE PROJECT.
>>WE’RE A RESTAURANT, BUT
WE’RE ALSO A SCHOOL.
>>Reporter: TODAY IT IS
PAKISTAN FARE.
IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS,
WHO KNOWS.
>>FOLKS ARE COMING FROM
DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE
WORLD, AND THEY SOMETIMES
COOK BEAUTIFUL THINGS AND
CORRECT WITH WHAT THEY
LOVE ABOUT THEIR CULTURE,
AS OPPOSED TO WHAT YOU SEE
ON THE TV, ALL OF THE
LOVELY THINGS ABOUT
CULTURE AND FAMILY AND
HOSPITALITY, THROUGH FOOD.
>>Reporter: THE
STUDENTS TURN OVER EVERY
THREE TO NINE MONTHS.
ON THE FRONT END, THEY
EMPLOYEE AN ENTREPRENEUR
IN-RESIDENT, AND THAT
STUDENT COMES UP WITH THE
MENU AND REALLY LEARNS THE
BUSINESS SIDE OF THINGS.
LEARNING EVERYTHING FROM
WORKING THE LINE BACK IN
THE KITCHEN TO NEGOTIATING
RENT.
>>THE IDEAL IS FOR THAT
PERSON TO GO AND OPEN
THEIR OWN PLACE IN THE
NEIGHBORHOOD.
>>Reporter: SARAH FLED
PAKISTAN AFTER BEING
PERSECUTED FOR BECOMING A
CHRISTIAN.
>>MY FAMILY AND THE
CULTURE, AND EVERYBODY
WANTED TO KILL ME.
I HAVE BEEN POISONED ONCE.
I HAD BEEN HIT MANY TIMES
FROM FAMILY MEMBERS.
NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS,
GOD WAS ALWAYS WITH ME.
HE SAVED MY LIFE.
>>Reporter: ROBIN SAYS
GOD OPENED DOORS FOR HER
TO COME TO THE U.S., AND
IS STILL OPENING DOORS AS
SHE WORKS TO BE SUCCESSFUL
HERE.
>>I NEVER THOUGHT ONE DAY
I WOULD OPEN UP MY OWN
RESTAURANT AND I WOULD
WORK HERE.
BUT AS I CAME HERE AS A
REFUGEE, I SAW THAT I
COULD LEARN A SKILL FOR MY
LIFE.
I’M SO BLESSED THAT I’M IN
THIS PROGRAM.
>>Reporter: ROBIN HAS
ALREADY STARTED THE
PROCESS OF WORKING IN HER
OWN RESTAURANT.
>>I WANT TO BRING A
PAKISTANI VIBE IN THIS
COUNTRY.
>>Reporter: AS MORE
REFUGEE ENTPRENEURS LIKE
ROBIN ARE TRAINED AND
GIVEN THE TOOLS TO START
THEIR OWN RESTAURANTS,
FOOD TRUCKS, OR CATERING
BUSINESSES, HE HOPES THEY
WILL BE DRAWN TO INVEST
THEIR TIME AND MONEY INTO
THE CORE.
>>THEY CAN BRING SOME OF
THAT LIFE AND ENERGY INTO
THE CITY.
>>Reporter: TWO
RUST-BELT CITIES,
THOUSANDS OF REFUGEES, WHO
WITH JUST A SMALL AMOUNT
OF SUPPORT ARE EAGER TO
BECOME CONTRIBUTING
MEMBERS OF THEIR
COMMUNITIES.
CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS,

THANKS, CAITLIN.
WE WILL BE BACK.
