Glenn Beck’s Nazarene Fund Raises More Than $20 Million In 3 Days To Save Christians From Taliban Terror
A fundraizing program ignited by conservative radio host Glenn Beck to rescue Christians in Afghanistan was able to draw in over $20 million in a period of just three days.
The Nazarene Fund aims to save approximately 5,000 people, mostly women and children, from the now-Taliban-controlled country, The Blaze reported.
According to their website, The Nazarene Fund was set up to:
“liberate the captive, to free the enslaved, and to rescue, rebuild and restore the lives of Christians and other persecuted religious and ethnic minorities wherever and whenever they are in need.”
Last Friday Beck made a tweet saying:
“I’m BLOWN AWAY by what this audience has done to help rescue persecuted Christians in Afghanistan! OVER $20 MILLION raised in less than 3 days! THANK YOU!”
Wow. Because of your generosity in the last two hours we’ve already raised enough to get 800 people out. We have a massive goal in a short period of time. Help us. https://t.co/VdfmWZxTi9

During his podcast, Beck said:
“I’m truly afraid we’re going to lose a lot of our staff, because this is so dangerous. So dangerous. But I will tell you this: we will get those people out. We will get those people out.”

Beck went on to say:
“The churches have disbanded over there. Christians are not even — they’re not hanging together, they’re not hiding together, they’re all hiding separately. The Taliban is stopping you, checking your phone. If you have a Bible app or anything to do with Jesus on your phone, you’re instantly being killed. They are setting Christians on fire, those who have converted because they’re the worst, according to the Taliban.”
And the number keeps rising…

Beck noted that most of the money came from individuals who donated small amounts.
“Please pray for these people,” he added.
