PAUL STRAND REPORTS FROM ORLANDO, FLORIDA, ON ONE GROUP OF CHRISTIAN LEADERS WHO SAY WHAT’S NEEDED IS A WORLD-CHANGING REFORMATION.>>Reporter: LEAD INDIVIDUAL SOULS TO CHRIST, BUT THE BIBLE ALSO TELLS US TO DISCIPLE NATIONS. HOW DO YOU DO THAT? THAT MIGHT TAKE A LITTLE MORE THAN REVIVAL. MAYBE THAT IS WHAT REFORMATION IS ALL ABOUT. IN PSALM 2, GOD THE FATHER SAYS TO JESUS, I WILL MAKE THE NATIONS YOUR INHERITANCE.>>PEOPLE ARE VERY IMPORTANT.>>Reporter: BUT PASTOR MARIO SAYS SALVATIONS ONE BY ONE WON’T TURN A WHOLE NATION, AND REVIVALS DON’T LAND LONG ENOUGH, BUT REFORMATION CAN FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE OR REFORM A COUNTRY.>>REFORMATION IS REALLY THE KINGDOM OF GOD COMING INTO EVERY ASPECT OF SOCIETY.>>WE’VE GOT TO THINK BIG.

ACTUALLY, NO. THAT’S, LIKE, THE STARTING POINT.>>Reporter: AND THEY BELIEVE THE 2016 ELECTION COULD BE THAT STARTING POINT.>>WHEN WE REALIZED WE WERE ABOUT TO LOSE OUR NATION IN THE LAST ELECTION, WE BEGAN TO CRY OUT TO GOD AND FAST AND REPENT. CONSERVATIVES, CHRISTIANS, SHOWED UP, 92% IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE FACT THAT IT WOULDN’T BE HILLARY. IT WOULD BE DONALD TRUMP.>>Reporter: BRAMBACK PRAYERS IN WASHINGTON AND THE WHITE HOUSE. AND HE REMEMBERS WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP TOLD EVANGELICAL LEADERS FROM THE START.>>HE SAID TO THE COMMUNITY, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE. AND HE SAID, I AM RESTORING YOUR VOICE, AND I AM RESTORING IT AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL.>>SOMEONE GAVE RAMIRO PENA A WORD AND SAID, PASTOR PENA, I WANT YOU TO LOOK OUT THE WINDOW.

IF WE CAN JUST STAY ENGAGED IN THE PROCESS.>>Reporter: PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS, ORLANDO.>>TURNING TO CENTRAL AMERICA WHERE A FORMER NEWS ANCHOR FOR CBN’S SPANISH PROGRAM HAS WON THE ELECTION IN COSTA RICA. HE CAMPAIGNED ON A PRO-LIFE, PRO-RELIGION PLATFORM.>>Reporter: THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WAS UNPRECEDENTED FOR COSTA RICA BECAUSE HE WAS DECLARED THE WINNER. HOWEVER, HE DID NOT RECEIVE THE MAJORITY OF VOTES, AND MUST G FACE A RUNOFF. IT THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY THAT THE EVANGELICAL LEADER HAS COME CLOSE TO HOLDING THE OFFICE. HE CO-ANCHORED THE SPANISH VERSION OF CBN’S “CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS” FROM MARCH OF 2009 TO SEPTEMBER 2013. AND HE ALSO IS A CHRISTIAN SINGER, WHO IN THE LAST FOUR YEARS HAS SERVED AS A DEPUTY IN THE COAS COSTA RICAN CONGRESS. HE HAS A FIRM STANCE AGAINST SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, AND COSTA RICAN CHURCHES ALSO PLAYED A SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN THE ELECTION RESULT, MOTIVATING PRAYER AND ADVOCATING DEFENSE OF THE TRADITIONAL FAMILY. SISO PORAS EXPLAINED.>>THE COSTA RICAN FAMILY IS AT A CROSS-ROADS BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT BETRAYS THE VALUES OF THOSE WHO ELECTED THEM. THEY WANT TO CHANGE THE INSTITUTION OF THE FAMILY AND OF MARRIAGE. THEY WANT TO LEGALIZE ABORTION, AS OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE DONE.

THE ISRAELI FOUNDATION HONORED THE GUATEMALA PRESIDENT FOR HIS HISTORIC DECISION TO MOVE THAT NATION’S EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM. GUATEMALA, BY THE WAY, IS THE SECOND COUNTRY AFTER THE UNITED STATES TO RECOGNIZE JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITAL OF ISRAEL. THE FOUNDATION GAVE MORALES A PLAQUE AND PRAYED A SPECIAL BLESSING OVER HIM, BUT THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WAS JUST DOING WHAT HE SHOULD HAVE DONE.>>FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, I TELL YOU I DON’T FEEL DESERVING OF AN AWARD. I’M JUST TRYING TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND ALLOW MY GOD, MY PEOPLE, AND HISTORY TO JUDGE ME.>>GUATEMALAN LEADERS HAVE ALSO SAID THAT THEIR FAITH IN GOD INSPIRED THEM TO MAKE THIS DECISION.>>>UP NEXT…MAN ON A MISSION, SEE WHY GOD TOLD THIS CHINESE CHRISTIAN TO TRAVEL ACROSS COUNTRY.>>AND WELCOME BACK TO “CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS.” HISTORICAL TOWNS IN CHINA ARE POPULAR DESTINATIONS FOR TRAVELLERS, ESPECIALLY DURING HOLIDAYS. RECENTLY ONE CHINESE CHRISTIAN MADE A TWO-WEEK TRIP AROUND THE NATION. BESIDES SIGHTSEEING, HE ALSO BROUGHT A VERY SPECIAL MESSAGE TO THE LOCALS. MUNG F FE LI EXPLAINS.>>Reporter: AS THEY CELEBRATE THE CHINESE NEW YEAR, PEOPLE IN CHINA EXPECT A YEAR OF BLESSINGS. IT IS THE YEAR OF THE DOG. ACCORDING TO THEIR BELIEF, DOGS BRING THEM GOOD LUCK.>>IT IS AMAZING TO CELEBRATE THE NEW YEAR IN THE LAND OF SNOW AND ICE. ALTHOUGH IT IS SO COLD HERE, BUT IT IS HOT IN OUR HEARTS.

JING WAS IN CITIES — MANY CITIES AND MANY SMALL VILLAGES. HE WAS ABLE TO VISIT 10 CITIES WITHIN TWO WEEKS. THE ONLY TRANSPORTATION WAS HIS MOTORCYCLE. HE BELIEVES HE WAS GUIDED BY GOD.>>BEFORE THE TRIP, I HEARD MANY MISSIONARIES TRAVELLED TO CHINA FOR DOING GOD’S WORK. I COULD NEVER IMAGINE DOING THAT MYSELF. ALONG THE JOURNEY, I SANG WORSHIP SONGS WITH THE LOCALS, TOLD THEM STORIES. PEOPLE JUST CAME UP TO ME AND HUGGED ME. THEY WERE FASCINATED BY JESUS AND BIBLICAL STORIES.>>Reporter: TOUCHED BY JING WI PASSION AND LOVE, LOCAL RESIDENTS JOINED MUSICALLY TO SHOW APPRECIATION TO THEIR UNIQUE FRIEND.>>Reporter: AFTER RETURNING TO BEIJING, PEOPLE WERE EAGER TO HEAR HIS STORIES AND EXPERIENCES. HE SHARED HOW GOD USED HIS TALENTS DURING THE TWO-WEEK JOURNEY.>>AS I PERFORMED AT ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER, I ALWAYS PRAYED FIRST. I ASKED GOD THE QUESTION: JESUS, WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO TELL THEM? GUESS WHAT? GOD ALWAYS GAVE ME THE ANSWERS AS SOON AS I STARTED TO SING. I’M JUST A TOOL FOR HIM TO BE KNOWN AND GLORIFIED.>>Reporter: CHINESE MILLENNIALS LOVE TO RIDE MOTORCYCLES. MUNG JING WI IS THE FIRST CHINESE CHRISTIAN MOTORCYCLIST TO TRAVEL AROUND THE NATION, SPREADING THE GOOD NEWS, AND THIS YEAR HE IS PLANNING TO TRAVEL TO MORE CITIES IN CHINA.>>THIS WON’T BE THE LAST TRIP FOR ME. I HAVE MORE IDEAS IN MY MIND. I WILL JUST KEEP ON PRAYING AND WAITING FOR THE LORD TO GIVE ME THE NAMES OF THE NEXT 10 OR 20 PLACES. CHINA IS PRETTY BIG, RIGHT?>>Reporter: MUNG FE LI, CBN NEWS.>>PARENTS IN AUSTRALIA ARE ALARMED THAT A SCHOOL PROGRAM DESCRIBED AS ANTI-BULLYING MAY BE PROMOTING HOMOSEXUALITY. ONE MOTHER TOLD CBN NEWS THAT THE PROGRAM TRAUMATIZED HER SON, CAUSING HIM EMOTIONAL DAMAGE. LUCILLE TALUSAN REPORTS.>>Reporter: WILLIAM, NOT HIS REAL NAME, DESCRIBES THE ANIMATED VIDEO HE WAS MADE TO WATCH AS PART OF THE SAFE SCHOOLS PROGRAM.>>WHEN THEY FIRST STARTED TALKING, IT IS OKAY IF YOU CAN MARRY THE SAME GENDER THAT YOU ARE, LIKE A BOY MARRIES A BOY OR A GIRL MARRIES A GIRL. AND THEN WE STARTED WATCHING THIS VIDEO, WHICH WAS VERY INAPPROPRIATE BECAUSE IT HAD IMAGES AND STUFF LIKE — YOU KNOW LIKE A GUY KISSING LIKE A GUY. THERE WAS A LOT OF NUDITY IN THE VIDEO. I WAS OFFENDED BY IT.>>THEY PHYSICALLY SHOWED HOW TO USE GADGETS, THAT I HAVE PERSONALLY, AS AN ADULT, NEVER SEEN. THEY’RE TAUGHT CONTENT THAT IS ABSOLUTELY VIAL, RESPONDING TO YOUR BODY SEXUALLY. THERE IS NO MORALITY. THERE IS NO CONSCIENCE.>>Reporter: WILLIAM’S PARENTS BELIEVED THE SAFE SCHOOLS PROGRAM IS ACTUALLY DESIGNED TO PROTECT HOMOSEXUALS FROM DISCRIMINATION, AND IN DOC INDOCTRINATE SCHOOL CHILDREN TO EXPERIMENTING WITH HOMOSEXUALITY. BILL NUREN BUR NURENBURG SAYS THE PROGRAM IS PART OF THE SAME-SEX MARRIAGE AGENDA.>>ONCE WE GET HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE, IT DOESN’T STOP THERE. WE HAVE TO GET THE KIDS IN THE CLASSROOM, AND THEY HAVE TO BE TOLD THIS IS NORMAL AND ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR.>>Reporter: BUT HE IS WORRIED THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT REDUCING HOMOPHOBIC BEHAVIOR, BUT MARXISTS IS CREEPING INTO THE SOCIETY.>>ONE OF THEIR FAMOUS QUOTES IS, IF YOU GIVE ME YOUR KIDS, I’LL NOT ONLY TEACH THEM HOW TO EMBRACE HOMOSEXUALITY, I’LL TEACH THEM HOW TO BE GOOD COMMUNISTS AS WELL. YOU BRING IN THIS WHOLE RADICAL AGENDA. IT IS NOT JUST SEXUALITY. IT IS RADICAL MARXIST THOUGHT, WHICH HAS ALWAYS BEEN ANTI-FAMILY, ANTI-FAITH, AND ANTI-FREEDOM.>>Reporter: WHILE MOST SCHOOLS HAVE THE SAFE SCHOOLS CURRICULUM IN MOST SCHOOLS, THERE ARE CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS LIKE THIS ONE, WHO ARE COMMITTED TO TEACH THEIR STUDENTS AND INSTILL IN THERE STRONG CHRISTIAN VALUES.>>WE ARE THE PROTECTORS OF THE MIND. WE ARE THE PROTECTORS OF YOUR MIND. AND OUR OUR SIGNIFICANCE IS WE ARE RAISING UP YOUNG PEOPLE WHO KNOW THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO ARE NOT ASHAMED OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. WHO WILL STAND IN PUBLIC AND SING, AND WHO WILL SPEAK TO PEOPLE AND SAY, I BELIEVE IN JESUS.>>Reporter: WILLIAM’S PARENTS TRANSFERRED HIM TO A CATHOLIC SCHOOL WHERE THERE IS NO SAFE SCHOOLS PROGRAM, BUT THEY STILL STRUGGLE ON HOW TO HELP THEIR SON OVERCOME THE TRAUMA THE SAFE SCHOOLS PROGRAM COST HIM.>>IT HAS GOTTEN TO THE POINT WHERE I HAD TO TAKE HIM TO THE HOSPITAL. HE WOULD GET RACING HOT, UNABLE TO BREATHE.>>I’M HOPING THIS STOPS. BECAUSE IT IS REALLY PAINFUL IT’. IT’S NOT RIGHT.>>Reporter: LUCILLE TALUSAN, CBN NEWS, MELBOURNE.>>UP NEXT, FOR THREE YEARS THE CITY OF MOSUL IN IRAQ WAS THE HEADQUARTERS OF ISIS. TODAY IT’S AN APOCALYPTIC RUIN. WE’LL TAKE YOU THERE RIGHT AFTER THIS. CIOUS>>WELCOME BACK TO “CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS.” THE NORTHERN IRAQI CITY OF MOSUL SERVED AS THE HEADQUARTERS FOR ISIS FOR NEARLY THREE YEARS. COALITION FORCES RECAPTURED MOSUL LAST SUMMER. RECENTLY CBN NEWS WENT INSIDE THE CITY FOR AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT THE ISLAMIC STATE’S EPICENTER. AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS, IT WILL TAKE A LONG TIME TO FIX WHAT ISIS DESTROYED.>>Chris: CBN NEWS, ESCORTED BY IRAQI NATIONAL POLICE, DROVE WHERE THE FIGHT AGAINST ISIS WAS AT ITS WORST. THIS PART OF MOSUL REMAINS A MILITARY ZONE, LITTERED WITH UNEXPLODED ORDINANCE, I.E.D.s, AND DEAD BODIES. WE’RE STANDING IN THE CENTER OF MOSUL, AND YOU CAN REALLY SEE IT IS AN APOCALYPTIC LANDSCAPE. EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK YOU CAN SEE DEVASTATION AND DESTRUCTION. IT IS LIKE A GHOST TOWN. IT REMINDS ME OF WHAT A EUROPEAN CITY WOULD LOOK LIKE IN WORLD WAR II, AFTER IT WAS BOMBED OUT. IT IS NOT GOING TO TAKE MONTHS OR YEARS, BUT MAYBE DECADES TO RESTORE MOSUL TO WHAT IT ONCE WAS. WE STOOD WITHIN JUST A FEW YARDS OF WHERE AN ISIS LEADER DECLARED A CALIPHATE IN THE SUMMER OF 2014. NOW THAT THREE-YEAR DREAM LAY IN RUINS. HIS FIGHTERS, DEAD OR GONE.>>WHAT WE’RE LOOKING AT HERE, THIS DEVASTATION THAT WE CAN SEE AROUND US, IS THE PRICE THAT IT TOOK TO DESTROY THAT MOST VIAL OF PROJECTS THAT WAS DECLARED IN THIS CITY IN JUNE 2014, CALLING ITSELF THE ISLAMIC STATE. THIS IS THE COST, THE PRICE. THIS DESTRUCTION IS WHAT IT TOOK TO TURN THAT THING FROM A REALITY BACK INTO JUST AN IDEA AGAIN.>>Chris: THE TI GRIS RIVER DIVIDES MOSUL. EAST MOSUL STILL SHOWS SIGNS OF LIFE, BUT WEST MOSUL BORE THE BRUNT OF THE CONFLICT. ONE REPORT SAYS MORE THAN 9,000 CIVILIANS DIED IN THE BATTLE TO LIBERATE MOSUL FROM THE ISLAMIC STATE, AND LEFT THE CITY IN RUINS IN THE ATTEMPT TO SAVE IT. WE LOOKED TO THIS NEARBY CHURCH, A STARK SYMBOL OF WHAT ISIS SOUGHT TO DESTROY. IN MOSUL ALONE, ISIS DESTROYED DOZENS OF CHRISTIAN CHURCHES AND BUILDINGS. AT ONE TIME, MORE THAN 10,000 CHRISTIAN FAMILIES CALLED MOSUL HOME. NOW JUST A HANDFUL REMAIN.>>I’M STANDING AT WHAT USED TO BE THE CENTER OF ST. CATHARINES’ CHURCH. ISIS USED THIS AS THEIR HEADQUARTERS, AND THEN IT WAS DESTROYED BY A U.S. AIRSTRIKE.>>AFTER ISIS TOOK OVER MOSUL, THEY USED THIS PLACE AS THEIR HEADQUARTERS. THEY BROUGHT EVERYTHING THEY STOLE FROM THE PEOPLE, THEIR CARS AND PROPERTY, HERE. THEY USED IT AS A FACTORY FOR WEAPONS AND BOMBS.>>I CAN’T SUPPRESS MY SAD FEELINGS ABOUT THAT BECAUSE I’M COMPARING HOW IT WAS BEFORE, AND NOW HOW IT IS. AND NOT JUST THE BUILDING, BUT THE ACT OF THE DOMINICAN SISTERS.>>Chris: HE SAYS THE DOMINICAN SISTERS SERVED AS SALT AND LIGHT TO MOSUL.>>THIS WAS FOR ALL CHRISTIANS IN MOSUL. AND IT HAS A BIG IMPORTANCE. BECAUSE THE PEOPLE OF MOSUL KNOWS THE DOMINICAN SISTERS. THEY ESTABLISHED MANY SCHOOLS IN MOSUL. AND ALL OF THE PEOPLE NOW WHO ARE IN GOOD POSITION IN IRAQ, THEY ARE GRADUATEDEGRADUATED FROM THESE SCHOOLS, ESPECIALLY IN MOSUL. FOR THAT, THE DOMINICAN SISTERS HAVE A GOOD REPUTATION IN MOSUL.>>Chris: HIS HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATION PROVIDED FOOD AND RELIEF TO SUNNI MUSLIMS HERE WHEN THE CITY OPENED UP.>>WE WERE HERE WHEN THE BOMBED. IN THE CENTER YOU’RE DISTRIBUTING FOOD FOR FAMILIES. AND THEY’RE ASKING US, WE KILLED CHRISTIANS, AND NOW YOU’RE HELPING US. WE DIDN’T UNDERSTAND THAT. DR. JORDAN WAS WITH US, AND HE TOLD THEM, THAT’S CHRISTIANITY, THEY LOVE THEIR ENEMIES. AND YOU ARE NOT THEIR ENEMIES. YOU ARE VICTIMS OF ISIS, AND AS CHRISTIANS, WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU.>>Chris: WHILE MUCH OF MOSUL LIES IN RUINS, HE HOPES FOR A BETTER FUTURE.>>I HOPE THAT MOSUL ONE DAY WILL BECOME AS IT WAS BEFORE. THAT IS MY DREAM.>>Chris: CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, MOSUL, IRAQ.>>TO SEE MORE OF CHRIS MITCHELL’S GREAT REPORTING FROM THE MIDDLE EAST, YOU CAN GO TO HIS “JERUSALEM DATELINE” PROGRAM, AND YOU CAN WATCH IT AS cbnnews.com. PEEWE’LL BE BACK RIGHT AFTER THIS.>>AND FINALLY ON THE BROADCAST THIS WEEK, “OPERATION BLESSING” HAS RESTORED WATER FOR A REMOTE MEXICAN COMMUNITY THAT SUFFERED FROM A DEVASTATING EARTHQUAKE LAST YEAR. THE WATER WELLS IN SANTA MARIA DEL MAR WERE CONTAMINATED AFTER THE SEPTEMBER QUAKE, LEAVING FAMILIES WITH NOTHING SAFE TO DRINK. “OPERATION BLESSING” PARTNERED WITH “WATER MISSIONS INTERNATIONAL” TO RESTORE THEIR WATER. THE COMMUNITY IS NOW ABLE TO ENJOY NEW, CLEAN, SAFE DRINKING WATER. ALL GOOD STUFF “OPERATION BLESSING” IS DOING AROUND THE WORLD.>>>WELL, FOLKS, THAT IS IT FOR THIS WEEK’S EDITION OF “CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS.” I HOPE YOU HAVE BEEN ENCOURAGED WITH WHAT GOD IS DOING AROUND THE WORLD. UNTIL NEXT WEEK, GOOD-BYE.
