Glenn makes $55,000 donation to woman's charity on radio

 

Something incredible happened on radio today - a Colorado shelter for abused women that had recently lost it's federal funding (because they refused to make their Bible study 'optional') had their prayers answered. The owners took a leap of faith and when faced with an ultimatum - drop the mandatory Bible study or lose funding - they chose faith over cash. They had no idea where they'd get the money, but trusted God would provide. That's exactly what happened on radio today.

Glenn read s story from The Blaze which reported:

Mandatory Bible studies have led to the loss of federal funds for two Colorado women’s shelters. The Gospel Shelter for Women centers, which are non-profit organizations, offer assistance to individuals who are mentally ill. Additionally, they provide transitional housing for the homeless and those struggling with addiction.

...

Apparently, the women who go through these facilities are required to participate in Bible studies as a portion of their treatment. In the past, these studies were believed to be optional, so officials allowed monies to be allocated in support of the shelters. But the revelation that participants are forced to take part in religious activities has led to a major funding loss.

Faced with a tough decision, leaders of the organization decided to keep prayer and faith in the program. Of course, the other option would be to continue accepting federal dollars, while taking faith out of the equation.

Glenn interviewed Marilyn Vyzourek, the founder and executive director of Liza’s Place, on radio this morning, and during the interview he decided he would step in and donate the lost funds to the group.

After explaining what the organization did, Glenn asked Marilyn how much the organization needed.

"I'm probably about $20,000 in the red.  We laid off one staff member, we're getting ready to lay off another one, and we just need to generate the funds in a different area.  We're still open.  We're still taking people for Hope Home and Liza's Place.  We've consolidated the two programs in one building and we're just looking for other areas of funding so that we can keep it open," she said.

"$55,000 is what we've lost," she explained.

"When you first heard that you were going to lose it, you had the faith that the Lord would replace it some way or another?" Glenn asked.

"Yes," she said.

"Okay.  Good.  We're going to send you a check for $55,000.  My wife and I would like to make sure that you don't lay any more people off and you keep those doors open," Glenn said.

"Oh, thank you so much.  Praise God.  Wow," Marilyn exclaimed.

Glenn then had one of his producers speak with Marilyn offline about getting her group the money they needed.

"Wow.  So what government program just mandated that you did that?  That was weird," Stu joked.

"I have done the things that have put me in a situation where I can make money.  And then my wife and I decide what to do with that money," Glenn explained. "And if the government doesn't think that a faith‑based charity should get any money, well, then it is up to me, an individual who believes in small government, to make up the difference."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
