When Abeer* immigrated from the Middle East to Canada, life quickly got busy. Before she knew it, she felt alone and far from God. Then, she found renewal when she watched a SAT-7 program.
“I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful program ‘Is it Important to be a Christian?,'” Abeer wrote after watching the SAT-7 ARABIC YouTube channel.
“We really need you for our faith to keep growing. I watched the two episodes about the mother who lost her son, and I agreed with everything you said. I admit, recently, I had lost my faith in Christianity due to some personal challenges I faced. After listening to you, it made me think again about what I am going through. The busy life here where I live takes me far from Jesus, but, when I listen to you, I feel a bit better. I wish you good health and may you always be a good influence on the people who so badly need you.”
Individuals like Abeer are an important part of our story. Boundaries may divide us, but, with the help of social media and apps, we can be close at hand.
