God is moving, working, and transforming the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Regardless of the confiscated satellites, blocked websites, and government-regulated social media services, people are hearing and responding to the Word of God. With the use of apps, websites, and satellites, SAT-7 is speaking to individuals like Anita* and other SAT-7 viewers who found our website.
“For the Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow…” –Hebrews 4:12
For those like Anita, it means that she no longer has to worry about her sister. Through Telegram®, an app known for its security, Anita’s sister can watch SAT-7, read the Bible, and converse with other Christians. Anita’s sister no longer has to fear that her husband will find out that she is watching, and ban SAT-7 channels from their satellite. And Anita no longer fears for her spiritual growth.
Others, like a viewer who recently wrote in to express her excitement, find that information is easily attainable for those with English skills. However, for many in the MENA region without those skills, the most beneficial websites are those that provide devotionals, Biblical history articles, and Christian blog posts that are not readily available. While we can access a plethora of information that helps us grow spiritually, for Christians in the MENA region, spiritual growth is far more difficult to achieve. Yet, SAT-7 provides an easier path to spiritual growth through our websites written in Arabic, Turkish and Farsi, as well as English and French. Millions of viewers are finding that they can grow in their faith as they read articles and watch programs in their own language. It means that God’s Word is truly alive and active.
When events happen like the coup in Turkey this past July, or when countries like Iran confiscate satellites on a large scale, there is still a way to reach the unreachable. God’s Word is made available through SAT-7. Praise God that you and I can change the statistics! Together, we can provide viewers with articles, blogs, and Bibles, like the ones we enjoy. Together, we all can enjoy fellowship and spiritual growth. Thank you for your support and please continue to help change the statistics.
