Iraqi Christian Going Blind Has Sight Restored Thanks to Nazarene Fund

Meet Myrna, one of the thousands of Christians whose life has been transformed thanks to your generous donations to The Nazarene Fund. Myrna escaped Iraq with her family after being chased out by ISIS. They ended up in a Jordanian refugee camp with limited options. Crippled with pain, Myrna learned she had a tumor growing behind her eye that would eventually cause blindness. A woman's worth is already a precarious thing in the Middle East, but a blind woman would have no value at all.

The only surgical options within the refugee camp were sketchy at best. That's when Mercury One operatives on the ground learned about Myrna's situation.

"We found a doctor and a hospital that would treat her outside of the camp. It was $1,500. Brain surgery in Jordan, $1,500. No one could afford it," Glenn said.

Both her father and priest travelled with her, praying over her before the surgery, which was a complete success. Myrna is now pain-free and fully recovered.

GLENN: I want to -- I want to talk to you -- I want to tell you a story about Myrna. She is a Christian from Syria -- I'm sorry, from Iraq. And she's a young daughter. Family. Dad was a, you know, hard-working dad. They had a decent living in Iraq. ISIS comes in, chases the family. Luckily, they're one of the few that got out to Jordan. And the Christian family gets across the border. And now they're in a refugee camp.

Do you know anything about Jordan? Jordan is made up of a lot of refugee camps. The Palestinians, the displaced Palestinians, and they're not allowed to mix back into society.

So these Palestinians have been there for generations. And they're not allowed to mix in and become Jordanian, even though they were born in Jordan.

So Jordan will be nice and bring people in, but then you're isolated and you remain in the camp.

So dad can't work. No one can work. The conditions aren't well. Mercury One, we've provided, I think 11 -- is it 11 -- 11,000 people with food and sustenance. We got to their camp in Jordan, and it was in pretty bad shape.

And Myrna was crippled with pain. And we find out that she has a brain tumor. And it's growing behind her eye. And it's causing her excruciating pain. And, you know, she's going to lose her eye and be blind in both eyes.

If she goes blind -- A, she has to have something done. But if she has this really bad camp surgery, she'll be blind. And she also -- the -- also, the problem is, if it lets it grow, there's a possibility, that she doesn't live, a good possibility that she doesn't live, but a guarantee that she's blind in both eyes. So she has to do something because in this society, a blind woman is at the very lowest of the ladder.

If you're anywhere in the Middle East, you're a woman, you're in trouble. But you're blind, you have no life.

So we found out about it, and we found a doctor and a hospital that would treat her outside of the camp. But it was $1,500. Brain surgery in Jordan, $1,500. No one could afford it.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: So we got her out of the camp, brought her into the hospital, and brought the priest with her. And her father and her priest prayed over here before she had surgery.

She went in. She had the surgery, and she is now fully recovered and out of pain entirely. And has her life back as much as she can.

You don't know the difference that you have made in people's lives. You really have been remarkable, anybody who gave to the Nazarene Fund.

You have saved and moved to safety, as of -- as of this week, 4,000 people. Many of them have been moved to Australia. Australia opened its doors to the refugees -- the Christian refugees and has been really good.

There have been other countries that have taken whole parishes. Mainly, these are Arabic-speaking Christians. Orthodox Christians. Catholics.

And -- and Brazil has done this and has adopted these groups. America hasn't taken any. But that's what we expect nowadays, unfortunately, from America.

We have a couple of things that we're trying to do. We're trying to open up one more country that everybody has told me is impossible. And we so far have an agreement, but it is so dicey that we're unwilling to say anything about it until it actually happens. And it's going to take extraordinary sums of money because they also are people that are willing to not only take these people. But they're willing to take the hardest hit. They're willing to take the people who are like Myrna.

We have another woman right now who has the growth of a baseball in her brain. And it is benign. But she obviously has to have it removed. And no one will take her because she's currently in Iraq. And so she can't go anywhere. We can't get her to -- I think India is saying that they may take her and let her go in the hospital.

But if you're in Iraq, they're not letting you out. And we have one country that may do this, but it's going to cost us a lot of money to pull this off and get these people in. And there are children that have got to get to a hospital. And we would sure like your help on this project.

PAT: Whereas we once had $12 million, that's down to three now, I think?

GLENN: Three. Yeah, down to three.

PAT: We've spent $9 million in the effort for the 4,000 so far.

GLENN: Yeah, 4,000. And the 11,000 that have also been fed, food and everything else. It's quite remarkable what you're doing.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: We're also trying to rebuild some of the churches or at least help them on their feet so they can rebuild some of these churches.

Some of these churches, the ones that we're looking at right now are shrines and literally from the year 400 -- these are some of the first Christians, in what was I think ancient Persia at the time.

And so this is -- these are the places where the apostles actually went and visited. The plains of Ninevah. And we're trying help them, as some of them are coming back in and rebuilding. We would love to get your help.

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."
