Across the Middle East and North Africa the cry is deafening

We see and hear it in the news every day. It’s the devastating cry of tens of millions of desperate people. Conflict rages in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen. Millions are fleeing. Lives are being torn apart by oppression, barbaric extremism and religious persecution.
Frightened children are crying out for peace. Women are crying out for value. Angry young men are crying out for meaning. Persecuted Christians are crying out for the strength to face each day.
But God is on the move, appearing to people in dreams, challenging lifelong preconceptions, healing brokenness and transforming lives.
God is using SAT‑7 Christian television to take the Good News of Jesus into millions of homes across the Middle East and North Africa every day, 24/7. Our programmes are encouraging isolated and persecuted believers and introducing the Gospel to people who have never heard it before.
Of the 500 million people who live in the region less than 10% have ever met a Christian but, astonishingly, more than 90% have access to television. Over 15 million people regularly watch SAT-7. Every day, we receive more than 800 responses to our programmes — and demand is growing.
God is doing something powerful through SAT‑7. Isolated believers tell us that SAT‑7 is their church in their living room; seekers ask for Bibles, literature and prayer. Every day, people tell us they have become followers of Jesus. People like Elmira from Iran.
When she was just 11 years old, Elmira’s* family forced her to marry. By her 15th birthday she had two children. Her husband was a drug addict who forced her into prostitution to fund his habit. “Being a woman in my world hurt so much,” she said. But watching SAT‑7 television changed Elmira’s life. She gave her life to Christ and through SAT‑7’s contacts, began attending a secret church.
