Today on "World News with Charles Gibson":

Al Qaeda Weighs In:
Al Qaeda issued its first pronouncement on the U.S. election, directly insulting President-elect Obama. The message from Osama bin Laden's deputy Ayman al-Zawahri declares that the president-elect has a "stance of hostility to Islam and Muslims." The video message comes as new information suggests that Al Qaeda has strengthened its hold in east Africa. ABC's Brian Ross has the latest tonight.

Spirit of America:
Ten years ago, a church in the tiny Texas town of Possum Trot started a mission to adopt children from abusive homes. So far, church members have adopted more than 70 children, changing their lives forever. The congregation wants people to understand that what it's doing can be done anywhere and that it needs to be done for children in so many places. ABC's Erin Hayes reports from Possum Trot for our series "The Spirit of America."

And on our "World News webcast", along with our top headlines":

The Test:
It sounds like a school sporting event -- crowds cheering, singing and chanting for students. But all the hoopla is not for a football game, it's for Korean students taking a national college entrance exam. Koreans believe the nine-hour test is critical in determining one's future, and exam day is a national event. ABC's digital reporter Joohee Cho has more today on the webcast.
