AUGUST 2022 RESCUED
For all of you who have supported the work to rescue those being murdered in Afghanistan, I am blessed to report that as of the 27th of June, 844 Afghans have been rescued. By the time you receive this newsletter, there will be well over 1,000 souls who have escaped Satan’s reign of terror. I have to admit, for a while, I was not sure that we would be able to accomplish what we had hoped for. It was not for lack of work. Both I and the team at Far Reaching Ministries (FRM) worked for almost a year to save as many as possible. All over the globe going from country to country, trying to find open doors where we could safely resettle these individuals. FRM met with heads of government, presidents, and heads of state. Governments made promises, but we could not get them to implement large-scale open doors to save these people out of Afghanistan and from the cruelty of the Taliban. We were constantly in communication with families who were terrified of being killed, raped, and tortured. We encouraged them to not lose heart and told them we were coming for them. In the U.S. military, people who save this many lives are awarded our country’s highest awards. If I were president, I would award them the country’s highest honors for heroism. Through our contacts in the intelligence community, we have been informed of what was really happening. Countries were threatened that if they allowed Afghan refugees into their country, money would be withheld. The reason? They were trying to hide what had been done. In truth, a great crime against humanity was happening. And while our nation will not admit it, genocide was happening. The liberal media refused to tell the truth. They can lie all they want, but they are responsible for the murder and rape of thousands. At times, we wondered if we would be able to rescue anyone with all the government’s roadblocks. Even men within the world of intelligence and special operations would contact me and share how appalled they were by the absolute lying by the liberal media. Truth had no place; every time they did something that was a crime against individuals, they would just tell another lie. No blushing or shame as they have become completely depraved. But we had to hold onto the promises of God and trust when all seemed lost. We worked every option we had, with the aid of former FBI and CIA, talking with people in the world of counterintelligence. Groups like Blackwater, who did help, and even former individuals from the agency.
We also interacted with Marine Seals, the Army Green Beret, and a few honest people within the government.
But, through prayer and trusting the Lord, we began to see the Lord open doors, and lives were being saved. Second and third-world nations gave us corridors for people to start a new life. May God bless them for their heart of compassion not shown by our government and many other governments. I remember reading that before the Second World War, a ship from Nazi Germany brought over 937 Jewish people to America to be resettled. All that was needed was for our government to allow them onto U.S. soil. The ship contained many women, children, and the elderly. Instead, they were sent back and eventually perished in Nazi concentration camps, where they were starved and murdered. Our nation has not learned from the lessons of the past. In large, the lives that we have saved came mainly through the body of Christ. When we first mounted this rescue, I truly had no ability to conceive how we would get the resources to mount such a large-scale operation.

In large, the lives that we have saved came mainly through the body of Christ. When we first mounted this rescue, I truly had no ability to conceive how we would get the resources to mount such a large-scale operation. We used private contractors and mercenaries to mount rescues, and every conceivable option was implemented. Those of you who gave of your prayers and finances are among the heroes who will be remembered in eternity. Because of this ongoing operation, we still have a great need, and we have over 3,000 more that still need to be rescued. Unfortunately, getting people out and to a safe country costs a great amount of money. Right now, the average is about $4,500 per life. All foreign governments have actually stopped trying to rescue those living through this reign of terror. The United States has no planned rescue operations or concern for these individuals. All humanitarian groups have also stopped. Unfortunately, we are the only organization still going forward with rescue operations. Truthfully, I have been bone-tired and extremely weary from having to realize that if we do not succeed, many will die. This has been the driving factor in holding on to the biblical truths. Do not grow weary in well doing, for in due season, you will reap a harvest of righteousness. Folks, we are far from being done with rescuing the lives of those who will perish if we do not intervene.
I believe in the God of angel armies, and we are going to save as many as we can. We need prayer that the Lord would provide so that these lives can be saved. We realize that there is a term known as donor fatigue. This is when people are asked to give so often that they become fatigued. Unfortunately, we are involved in five wars and have spent millions saving and rescuing lives in Nigeria, South Sudan, Burma, Ukraine, and Afghanistan. At this time, we see no end in sight to what the Lord has called us to. We have already spent about $6 million this year saving lives, but if we stop, many will perish. Basically, we are spending everything that we are bringing in. With the cost of gas and food, families are really being stretched—having to give up many things just to make ends meet. What I will say is: one, please pray that the Lord would provide. Two, when you give, and it is difficult, the Lord does know and rewards us when we sacrifice.
Right now, we will need to raise about $10 million over the next year just to save lives in Afghanistan. This figure does not include the other four countries I previously mentioned where people are being massacred. For some of you, you may be able to provide $4,500 to save a life. For others, perhaps only a portion of this amount may be possible, and this amount could be put together with others. Still, some of us have been extremely blessed financially, and we can save more lives. For all of those who have not been able to give financially, but have continued to pray for FRM, I want you to know that you are the backbone of this rescue operation. When we all do our part, we will store treasures in heaven. I implore you to pray and ask the Lord what your part is in this ongoing rescue operation. Again, I want to thank all of you who have sacrificially given. Because of your sacrifice, over 1,000 individual lives have been saved. Mothers, fathers, and children are now being given a chance to live. I can confidently say that at least when the ship arrived at the FRM door, it was not sent back.
