A child bride in Iran at only 11 years old, a mother of two by 15, and a victim of sex-trafficking by her own husband to support his drug habit, Elmira was hopeless and drowning in deep despair. But what she heard on a SAT-7 program one day changed her life forever.
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.
Living in an area controlled by extremists, Shaheen learned about Christianity by watching SAT-7 programs and conflicted about what was true. He would finally find peace when he gave his life to Jesus Christ. This gave him assurance about his salvation and removed his fear of being killed for his faith.
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.”
