The Nazarene Fund Has Rescued Over a Thousand Afghan Christians This Week

Aug 24th

While the U.S. government flounders to get Americans out of Afghanistan, the non-profit organization started by Glenn Beck has already helped 1200 Afghan Christians to escape from the country.

On Sunday, Beck posted on social media asking Christians to pray and fast for Christians attempting to escape from Afghanistan.

The post received an overwhelming response, despite little media attention. According to Faithwire,

In just 3 days, Beck's audience had donated over $22 million to fund the evacuations of Afghan Christian refugees.

This morning, he shared that the Nazarene Fund was boarding the second group of refugees:

Beck later posted an update to his Facebook page saying that a third plane full of Christians fleeing the Taliban had departed thanks to The Nazarene Fund and Mercury One.

In an update on social media, Beck quoted Proverbs 24:11, saying, "Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter." A very fitting verse for the situation Christians in Afghanistan are currently facing.

He went on to say,

"By the end of the week, we will be able to move 7,000 Christians. It's pretty remarkable."

Continue to pray for the organizations on the ground doing what our government is failing miserably to do - prayer works!
