Armin* came to faith in Christ after watching programmes on SAT-7. He described the impact this is having on his life:
“As soon as I get home, the first thing I do is turn on or change the TV channel to SAT-7– even if we have guests at home. I was a truck driver and travelled abroad, but I lost my job the very same day that I got saved and since then I haven’t had any income. But to my extreme amazement, unlike my old angry nature, I have a profound peace in my heart. The new me has shocked everyone around me because they were so familiar with my bad behaviour and expected me to react in the way that I would have before. But my trust is in the Lord now. After so many years of marriage, it seems God has given my wife a new husband. Now I love and appreciate her. I was a drug addict for many years but Jesus healed me and set me free! I am praying for the will of God in my life. I want more of Him before anything else and I am not ashamed of Him. I am thirsty for more!”
SAT-7’s viewer support team linked Armin up with Christians inside Iran, so that they can encourage and support him in his faith and life.
Lives changed in Iran:
On air since 2006, SAT-7’s Farsi language channel, SAT-7 PARS,has an independently estimated audience of over 1.7 million. Every day, people are telling us that they have given their heart to Christ after watching a programme on our Farsi-language satellite TV channel.
