SAT-7 children’s programs are a joy for Egyptian mother Sarah* and her children. When Audience Relations counselors respond to Sarah’s messages, her kids gather around and excitedly ask her to reread their responses over and over again.
Sarah says, “You are a source of blessings in my life. You’ve become like water and bread for me. I watch your programs daily despite my work and housework.”
“I don’t know how to raise my kids but you help me raise them in the knowledge of Jesus Christ, His love and His person.”
Many parents can relate – doing their best to balance a job with housework and raising children. No one was ever meant to go it alone! God, our heavenly Father, understands the pressures of nurturing a healthy family dynamic while surrounded by the negative influences of a fallen world.
TRAIN UP YOUR CHILD
He commands parents “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6) These words may be easily understood, but rising to the occasion day after day can be intimidating. Parents need a fellowship of believers standing beside them, reminding them of Scripture as they seek discernment in day-to-day tasks.
In Egypt, where Sarah lives, there is the added stress of a rising cost of living due to high inflation rates. A deteriorating security situation, religious and gender discrimination add to parents’ fears for their children.
Thankfully, SAT-7 children’s programs provide a place for kids to enjoy their childhood while learning biblical principles. The channel is a safe haven for children and a relief to parents seeking support and guidance. Through your support for SAT-7, you’ve been like family to viewers like Sarah, giving her confidence to pursue her role as a godly mother.
