David was young. He had never been a soldier. But he knew God and he knew that God’s reputation among the nations was at stake. David understood too, that his victory over Goliath would be powerful testimony to Yahweh’s power and glory. This same God still yearns to bring men and women from all peoples to Himself.
Pray for faith to minister blessings in His Name.
Mohammed, a taxi driver in Iran, listened patiently while his passenger had complained about the government rationing gas and the ensuing riots. As the passenger climbed out of the cab, the driver handed him a slip of paper. “Watch this and you’ll learn the truth and find peace.” On the card he’d written information about SAT-7, a Christian satellite TV station.
Authorities in Iran and Turkey jam Christian radio stations. But satellite TV penetrates every home and office loud and clear. The Iranian government prohibits ownership of satellite TV dishes, but one official estimates that millions of households own the receivers and secretly watch Christian programming.
A new station, SAT-7 PARS, continuously broadcasts Christian programs and the JESUS Film in Farsi, the primary language of the Iranian people. Four hours each day, the station broadcasts in Turkish, which is understood by the Muslim Turks in neighboring Turkey.
Leaders of many of the house churches are young and have been believers less than two years. For most of them, these TV programs are the sole source of their Christian education. They share the biblical teaching with their congregations.Learn more at joshuaproject.net
Pray for many to watch the new 24-hour SAT-7 PARS television station. Pray that their hearts will melt as they learn the truth.-JWS
