As thousands of displaced refugees flood Europe from the Middle East and governments struggle to deal with the ever-growing crisis, entire communities of Christians continue to face imminent extermination at the hands of ISIS and other Islamist extremists unless they are rescued.
Thanks to the outpouring of support from thousands of donors responding the the #NeverAgainIsNow campaign, the Nazarene Fund has grown to the point where many of these asylum-seekers can be extracted and settled in new safe haven countries.
Joining Glenn as a guest on his TV show Thursday, Johnnie Moore, who is heading up rescue operations in the Middle East, reported on how things are coming together - quite miraculously, even.
Glenn asked his audience for their prayers going into this next phase, which Moore described as "very sensitive" and "very complicated."
At one point in the conversation, Glenn brought up a disturbing call he'd received from his publisher saying they'd just received a "giant" order of his new book, It IS About Islam from the Middle East. With that said, Glenn asked Moore to talk about some of the dangers he now faces.
"How much danger are you guys in by us just talking about it? I mean, are they aware - really aware of what you're doing and what we're doing over here?" Glenn asked.
Moore responded simply, "Yeah, they are."
He went on.
"Sometimes you do things because they're right. And you try to be smart about it," Moore said. "I believe this is bigger than us. I don't think this was our idea. We couldn't have cooked this up."

JOHNNNIE: Before we started actually having that totally unplanned conversation on this radio show, that birthed this gigantic movement.
GLENN: My gosh, that is how it happened, wasn't it?
JOHNNIE: You know, if we would have sat down and we would have planned this for three months, none of this would have happened. We were just talking. It happens.
GLENN: That's right.
JOHNNIE: You know, we were hoping we would save a few families here and there. You know, we'd do some good. And now we're looking at moving entire communities and saving generations.
GLENN: Okay. Real quick. I want to touch base on one thing. Again, I'm not asking you for a dime. If you want to donate, you can. Now.mercuryone.org. Go to GlennBeck.com. Look for the Nazarene Fund. You can donate if you want. What I am asking you now, until we start moving families -- until I can show to you, here's the fruit of what you've already done. I don't want to -- I don't want to ever ask you to trust me, ever. I want to be able to show you now, here's the fruit of our labor, and then you decide whether it's good or not. But I'm asking you for -- I am asking you for -- for prayers right now, because we're about to go into this next phase.
JOHNNIE: Yeah, we're going to be taking people out within weeks. And we need people to be praying. We have a number of countries that are -- have either decided or will decide in the coming days to take hundreds of people. And this is very, very sensitive. It's very, very complicated. That's why you have to talk about it very, very carefully. And trust me, once we get them out and we tell you the stories, you're going to see why we're so optimistic. There are so many miracles that have happened. I mean, real legitimate miracles again and again. God is with us. That's very, very clear. This should be much, much more difficult than it is. And I don't mean to say it's easy. But it should be much, much more difficult. But now, more than money, we need people to pray that this all works perfectly.
STU: Johnnie, if this is too specific, feel free not to answer. But you're going back and forth to the Middle East all the time. What is your frequent flier status now?
I mean, are you up to executive platinum at this point? I mean, you've got to be --
JOHNNIE: The type of airlines you use to fly into the Middle East don't exactly have the same type of --
GLENN: Johnnie, let me ask you this. I got a really disturbing call from my publisher and they said, "Hey, we just got a giant order from the Middle East. A giant order for your new book, It Is About Islam." And they wanted -- I think it's being shipped to Beirut for the Middle East. They're taking all the books there, and then they'll ship it out. How much danger are you guys in by us just talking about it? I mean, are they aware -- really aware of what you're doing and what we're doing over here?
JOHNNIE: Yeah, they are. They are. That's why we talk about it carefully. But the fact is, is that sometimes you do things because they're right. And you try to be smart about it. But I believe we're taking all the precautions we can possibly take. We're being very, very smart about what we're doing. And I believe this is bigger than us. I don't think this was our idea. We couldn't have cooked this up.
JOHNNIE: This happened. Here we are, and God's with us. He'll help us. And we'll save generations.
