This weekend Al and I attended the SAT-7 Christ in Crisis conference in Wichita. SAT-7 provides Arabic language Christian satellite television to the Arabic world. Anyone with a satellite dish can turn on SAT-7 and hear the Word of God in his or her language!
Dennis and Cindy are with SAT-7. Here is a description from their web site:
Director of Church Connections
We heard this story about a little girl whose family had to flee from ISIS. We were told that ISIS captured many children from her village and put them in a cage and torched them! Just awful!! But listen to her story!
Just this past week a TV news station in Saudi Arabia aired this unedited clip. May God use it to bring Him glory and further His kingdom! Pray with her that we can forgive our enemies, that God would bring peace to Syria and to all the Middle East, and that God would open the eyes of the terrorists (we understand that some of the ISIS followers are having dreams and turning to Jesus in faith!)
This is Mr. Know who has a program called "Why Is That?" Wouldn't it be fun to have a t-shirt like that?!
He has such energy and has such a way of connecting to children!! I am absolutely astounded by the faith and the prayers of the little children. We heard from 6 year olds to 12 year olds who prayed out loud on this show and it brought me to tears!
SAT-7 has women's programs. Many of the women in the Middle East have no hope. They are 2nd class citizens in many of the countries. Here is the web site to see that. You can even like their Facebook page. Pray for the women in the Middle East!!
What a joy to sing praises to Him in Arabic! Well, we struggled a little with that language.....Ray told us that Arabic will be the language we speak in heaven because it will take an eternity to learn!
And here is a final video from a brother of 2 of the victims of ISIS.
Please join us in prayer for God to continue to work and to bring peace! The following verse is coming to pass in this day.
In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The Lord Almighty will bless them, saying, ‘Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.’
