Over the next several weeks, you will meet brothers and sisters that you have helped us reach with the Gospel and with the beauty and practicality of Christian principles lived-out in daily life.
Current event news coverage highlights unrest, violence, and disarray in the Middle East and North Africa. Millions of people have been displaced by conflict in Syria, Yemen, and Libya, and ISIS continues to intensify its brutality against all who stand in its way. Meanwhile, refugees are at an all-time high with the Middle East alone struggling with 19.5 million displaced peoples and millions more have fled to Europe or beyond. One result is the approximately 13.4 million children who will not get an education because of the violence that has caused them to leave their homes.*
So why support the Middle East now? Why support efforts that seem to have no effect? There is no time to lose:
- For refugees who have lost everything; among them are millions of children fast becoming a part of a “Lost Generation.”
- For women who face abuse, sexual harassment, trafficking and violence.
- For the individuals within the MENA Church who are suppressed, often persecuted, and weary but resilient in faith and hope.
- And for those who seek the truth in a world full of propaganda.
Next week, you will begin hearing stories of a refugee, a victim of child marriage, the isolated church, and a seeker looking for answers. You will hear true accounts from a refugee trapped in horrible circumstances. You will watch the story of a woman, Elmira, who was forced to marry as a child at age 11 and left feeling worthless. You will feel the loneliness of Arvin, an Iranian who cannot attend church for fear of being arrested or worse. And you will praise God for the story of Emin, a Turk who sought to know the Truth about Jesus.
CHANGING LIVES THROUGH TELEVISION
Each person’s life was changed through SAT-7. Yet, all point to God for the miracle that is the hope, love, and faith they experience daily in their lives. As we reveal each story, pray. Pray for those afflicted by war, for women who live in impossible situations, for Christians who face oppression, and for individuals who seek Christ despite the dangers.
Every story is a person who was touched by the support you have provided SAT-7. Thank you and continue your support as we continue to reach millions during “such a time as this.”
