Unique needs met with creative response in the Middle East

By June 4, 2013

International (FCBH) — Faith Comes By Hearing offers the world's largest catalog of Audio Bibles to individuals and nations who want to hear God's Word.

SAT-7 broadcasts Christian television programming via satellite transmission to transform the Middle East and North Africa through hope in Jesus Christ.

Looking at this volatile region, it's clear that each generation has unique needs. When you add in technical societies and fast-paced lifestyles, access to God's Word takes on a whole new meaning. It also means meeting the cultural and literacy challenges presented.

It seems that if the two ministries came together, they could widen the scope of providing equal access to the Bible. Think of it: the pure Word of God broadcast 24/7 throughout the Middle East and North Africa—capturing hearts and minds as only God's Word can do–on a Bible.is channel through SAT-7.

In the areas where SAT-7 works, the traditional approach to sharing the story of Christ has been met with increasing levels of resistance and hostility. However, SAT-7 has found a way into the homes. Satellite dishes are EVERYWHERE. Despite the region's high level of poverty and illiteracy, 90% of homes in the Arab world have access to television, and half of all households have satellite receivers.

A friend and supporter of Faith Comes By Hearing saw the potential of a cooperative effort and established a "God's Word for Every Middle East Home" Matching Challenge. He'll match every gift given up to the challenge total of $200,000.

Every gift you give will be MATCHED, dollar-for-dollar, DOUBLED IN IMPACT to help reach this region with God's Word! Previously, every $1 you sent would reach one person. With matching funds, every $1 you send means two people in the Middle East will hear God's Word!

Please prayerfully consider what you can do today, and partner with FCBH and SAT-7 to get the pure Audio Bible into potentially every corner of every country in the Middle East and North Africa.
