A Christian Satellite TV network bringing hope, education, and entertainment to millions of Arabic-speakers in 21 countries across the Middle East and North Africa, takes up the challenge of doing more for the suffering Christians in Iraq and in Syria.
Information, education, entertainment, spirituality and the Christian message of hope, inclusion, and love are all part of SAT-7 Satellite TV’s programs that are beamed to millions of people across the Middle East and North Africa.
As Kurt Johansen, SAT-7’s Executive Director for Europe, Asia, and the Pacific explained to me, at least 400 million Arabic-speakers in the Middle East and North Africa have access to satellite TV.
Thanks to the wide range of programs broadcast by SAT-7 and to the commitment and vitality of those who work for the network, some 95% percent of the region’s population can turn on their television and find the very thing most needed in their troubled region: hope.
Kurt was in the Vatican “to liaise and align” with some of the Vatican Councils and Dicasteries in a two-way relationship that aims to have a positive influence on Middle Eastern society, address social issues from a Christian perspective, and make the Gospel message available to as many people as possible, including Christian communities who are dying out in countries like Iraq and Syria.
