Young people are a major focus of SAT-7’s ministry. Our desire is to fulfil the Bible verse: “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)
In each episode of Smile, a live show for Farsi-speaking children, presenters Parastoo and Pendar share God’s love with their viewers through entertaining teaching segments, songs and prayer.
- Smile (for three- to eight- year-olds) launched in 2013. In early 2015, a second live programme, Smile magazine, was launched for seven- to 13-year-olds. Pray that the newer programme will encourage many more young people to grow in faith.
- Pray that religious freedom will be established in Iran, so that Christians among Smile’s young viewers will be free to live out their faith in peace.
