SpaceNet, an innovative new show airing on SAT-7 KIDS, is helping young people to know God and His big plans for their life. How exactly? By flying through space, of course!
The show is presented by a popular YouTuber – 15-year-old Markus Kashouh – who leads viewers on a journey through space. “SpaceNet really shows how amazing God is,” Markus says. “We teach kids about the different galaxies and planets He created. Through science, we show them how powerful God is, and how creative.”
As viewers are taught about God and the universe He created, they also learn about their place in God’s world. From God’s creation to our creativity as His children, the show paints a picture of the world that encourages young people’s choice making and freedom. Many children in the MENA do not have supportive enough parents or the resources to develop their dreams and passions, and it is to those children that the show especially speaks.
“I think it’s really important for kids to know that they should be able to choose their own path,” Markus explains. “They should be involved in many activities to help them decide.”
Roy Abou Khalil, the producer of the show, also believes that SpaceNet’s target audience is in particular need of guidance and wisdom. “Ten years old is the start of a really sensitive age. To help children through it, we encourage them to develop their own interests and skills. In this way, they can develop their growing independence in healthy ways.”
- Thank God that young people in the MENA can watch SpaceNet. Pray that many would grow spiritually and benefit from the programme.
- Pray that SAT-7 KIDS viewers would “not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of [their minds]”
(Romans 12:2, NIV)
- Ask God to raise up dreamers in the MENA: children who know Jesus and want to bring change in our world.
