MENA (MNN) — The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is wrought with distressing situations: Syria’s civil war, Iraq’s now-daily bombings, Libya and Egypt’s military takeovers, a perpetual battle for the Gaza Strip.
SAT-7, a Christian satellite television ministry to the region, is countering the hopelessness of these scenarios with Gospel hope. Through a new matching fund, you and your church can help their messages go further.
SAT-7’s new Middle East HOPE Fund matches any annual gift dollar-for-dollar for up to four years. The fund was initiated by a generous donor who wants more churches to get involved in SAT-7’s work.
Here are the specifics: the Middle East HOPE Fund matches each gift from a new donor church dollar-for-dollar. It also matches any amount that’s added to an existing donor church’s annual support of SAT-7’s ministry. This offer extends to all denominations, up to $500,000 per year.
Change and upheaval are seemingly guaranteed in MENA. This matching fund ensures that SAT-7’s resources–and therefore their programming–are available for years to come.
Since the first program aired in 1996, SAT-7 broadcasts have brought quality Christian television programming directly into millions of homes throughout MENA. SAT-7 airs 6 channels in Arabic, Farsi, and Turkish languages to a known audience of over 15 million viewers.
In a region characterized by high illiteracy rates, media censorship, and limited incomes, anyone with a satellite dish can turn on SAT-7 and hear the Word of God in his or her language. Viewers can join a global fellowship of Christians within the privacy of their own homes–a significant concern for those who live in violence-stricken or oppressive environments. Audience Relations Specialists are available throughout the region to counsel and pray with viewers.
