“They’re under-funded.  They don’t have good weapons.  They’re completely outgunned by the Islamic State,” said Lara Logan.  “When you’re with them, you have this terrible feeling that many of them would be massacred if the Islamic State really turned its attention to taking back those villages.”

CBS News reported that assistance has started to arrive in the form of other Christians from abroad.  Felton is one of them, training the men that have remained to fight and on approaches like urban warfare.  His devotion is clearly expressed by his tattoo laden body, covered in artistic depictions of Christ and his sacrifices.

“To me, for the Christians here, it would be an honor to give my life helping these people,” he said.
