A teacher living in Afghanistan, Baset* shares how life has changed since the Taliban takeover and the struggle of navigating famine, financial hardship, and the security threats that go with being a Christian.
Enduring many marital problems, Heba*, from Algeria, was contemplating suicide. But one day while scrolling social media she noticed a post on the SAT-7 Family page that made her pause and reach out for help. The Viewer Support Team helped her begin a journey of healing and online discipleship that restored her joy in God.
Kidnapped by extremist militants in Syria, young Jad comforted himself during that dark time by singing worship songs he had learned while watching a SAT-7 KIDS program.
Years later on a phone call with presenter Marianne, Jad shares his story.
I spent 40 years of my life among people of a different faith and I lived in doubt. I thought that the path I was on was wrong and that I should search for a better way until the Lord Jesus Christ answered my troubled mind. It was a year ago last December that He touched my heart and accepted me, and I came to a deep faith in Jesus Christ. I delight in the faith I have in Him, because the thing for which I searched all my life finally came into my heart and gave me peace. I am very grateful for this channel.
A thousand thanks to God that from the time I have been in contact with you, my faith has grown stronger every day. My patience and endurance have increased and when I remember and call on the name of Jesus, I find peace in my being. I have discovered that I am now gradually able to resist hopelessness and negative thoughts by standing in the name of Jesus. Thank you for continuing to stand with me.”
