Fady and his wife Marian’s son Fares is so enthusiastic about his heroes on the SAT-7 KIDS channel, they drove into Cairo from their home in Tanta, 52 miles away, to tell us about it.
The couple introduced SAT-7 KIDS to their two-and-a-half-year-old son last year. Since then, Fares has become a huge fan, switching back to SAT-7 KIDS whenever his parents are watching something else.
Fady and Marian are so pleased they have become SAT-7 supporters, and are in regular contact with the presenters as well as Amgad, SAT-7’s Supporter Relations Manager in Egypt.
“In our culture, we teach children from a very young age,” Fady explained. “We give children the freedom to make their own choices at 20 or 30, but at a young age we want to give them the foundations.” SAT-7 KIDS fits the bill perfectly, they said, “because it’s safe, there are no bad words or actions” and because they wanted Fares to know about Christ from a young age.
SAT-7 KIDS programs “teach the children how to love and how to pray”. “During any program when the presenters pray, he does the same automatically,” Marian said.
In addition to creating a climate of faith and hope for children, SAT-7 KIDS has a ministry to adults. During the post-revolution turmoil of the last three days, Marian recalls, “All the prayers on SAT-7 were saying not to fear or worry about what happened. They first encouraged the adults and then they encouraged the kids.”
“We are used to living with these pressures,” Fady said, but watching SAT-7 KIDS has “been a way to run away from all the noise around us.”
