Conflict. Poverty. Persecution.
These are the words we usually associate with the Middle East.
And that’s hardly surprising. Christians in the region face daily challenges that we can only begin to imagine. But despair is only part of the picture…
There is another story being told – one of millions of Christians across the Middle East discovering joy. How? Through something perhaps unexpected...television.
Every day, SAT-7 is bringing life-changing moments of joy to millions of Christians across the region – straight into the sanctuary of the family home. Our powerful, faith-filled television programmes provide much-needed comfort, encouragement, and affirmation in the midst of a troubling world.

in the Middle East.
It’s time to see beyond the despair.
It’s time to choose joy.
