The Middle East and North Africa are now more open to the Gospel than any time in the past several hundred years. We know this based upon the testimonies of Christian workers on the ground, Middle Eastern believers, and the feedback we hear from our own SAT‑7 viewers.
How long this door of spiritual opportunity will remain open, we do not know. But we do know God has called us to fulfill the Great Commission, which is to go into all the nations and make disciples (Matt. 28:19-20).
Recently my Dad, Ernest, went to sleep at 86 years and woke up in Heaven. He had struggled with dementia, so while we are saddened that he is “absent” from us, we know he is not “gone,” that he is more alive in Heaven today than ever. Dad was a 50-year Deacon in his local church, a man faithful to Mom and his family, a farm kid who could fix anything and one who enjoyed serving people.
My father cared about the Great Commission. For years, Dad gave to missions. He supported Christian outreach, including SAT‑7, and was a model of generosity. He was concerned about his spiritual legacy, not in the sense of pride but in terms of stewardship. He wanted others to learn the joy of giving. You and I yet remain, so it is our time and our turn to walk through the door of opportunity in the Middle East.
SAT‑7 is now broadcasting Christian teaching throughout the Middle East and North Africa, literally to multiple millions. Less than $1 provides 1 person 1 year of programming, an incredibly efficient means of sharing the Word. And it is effective, as many Middle Easterners are responding.
Dad loved the Lord and he left a legacy of generosity. You can do this as well via several tax-advantageous and stewardship tools which reinforce Legacy Giving.
