According to Christian Broadcasting Network, Christian television ministry SAT-7 is set to launch educational programmes in refugee camps in the Middle East, as part of its bid to reach the most vulnerable people with the Gospel of Christ.
SAT-7 broadcasts its programmes in 25 Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East, and are now planning to launch a new programme, SAT-7 ACADEMY, which consists of educational programmes to be broadcast in refugee camps.
They have been gearing up for the project for two years now, as SAt-7 said: “We’re just announcing it now and have been preparing for about two years. It is another channel, it is in the Arabic language, it is aimed at that lost generation … of children, whether they’re in camps or wherever they are, who have been out of school maybe four, five, six years already.”
Network official Rex Rogers explained that Christian missionaries care about literacy because they want people to be able to read the Bible on their own. He added that literacy and education can also help lead people to more productive lives.
While literacy is currently among the major goals of SAT-7, the network said its ultimate mission is to bring Christ’s salvation to other people. In light of this plan, Roger is asking all Christians to pray that their upcoming educational program will succeed.
- Give thanks for the work of SAT-7 across the Middle East, and for this new initiative to reach out to children in refugee camps.
- Pray for the programmes as they go to air, that they will be well received and serve to help and encourage this lost generation of children.
- Pray that, through the programmes and other SAT-7 initiatives, many children and families will come to know the hope and healing love and grace of Jesus Christ.
Matthew 19 vs 14: “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’”
