HOPE from the Heavens

  • Posted: 2019-05-08

HOPE from the Heavens satellite Multiple times a year The HOPE is broadcast throughout the Middle East in Arabic, Farsi, and   Turkish. Each of these broadcasts goes out to tens of millions of households. Our broadcast   partners have secure methods to respond to viewers who have spiritual questions and prayer   requests. Sometimes these satellite programs and responders are the only contact that isolated   believers have with other Christians.

 Time and again our partners get messages from viewers like this one from a man in Iraq:

 "Hi everyone, I'm thirty years old and I've been watching your programs for three months. I've gotten very familiar with Jesus now and feel so happy. I have so much hope for the future! I'm sensing that my Lord Jesus Christ will transform all of my problems and struggles in life to hope and joy. If only I knew Jesus would give me so much joy and hope, I would have gotten to know Him a lot sooner." 

 And, this message from a woman in Iran:

 "It's truly a miracle that I met Christ. I cried to God that we had no resources and we had been kept from the truth. Even after 2,000 years, we are not allowed to choose to follow Jesus. We have to worship Him secretly....praise the Lord a thousand times for this valuable broadcast."

HOPE in the Hospital

  • Posted: 2019-05-08

 Medical and dental missionaries in Cameroon Africa obtained DVDs of The HOPE, both in French   and in English with African Storytellers, to show in the waiting room of the hospital. The doctors   told us that one of their greatest joys is to talk with the patients about what they saw in The HOPE.   They also aquired the rights to distribute low resolution download copies which are suitable for   veiwing on smart phones. They give these copies to people who are interested in watching the   movie again and also to people while making house calls.

The First Believers in Their Village

  • Posted: 2019-03-26

 In April of 2018, in a remote Bankariya village in Nepal, one of our ministry partners showed The   Nepali HOPE on a solar powered movie projector. The Bankariya are an unreached people group   of about 500 people. Their heart language is Awadhi, but they speak Nepali as a second language.   They live in scattered small villages in the Chure mountain range of Nepal. 

 Excited to see the movie, Lalita invited her father to join her. After veiwing The HOPE, they both   gave their lives to Jesus!

Our partner told us that Lalita and her father are the very first Believers in their village. It is possible that they are among the very first Believers of all Bankariya peoples!

HOPE in Isolated Places

  • Posted: 2019-03-26

Missionary with Solar Panesl Many unreached people groups live in very isolated areas where there is little or no adequate electricity or   access to the Internet. If they are going to be reached, someone has to go. And when that someone brings   The HOPE on a solar powered   video projection system that fits into a backpack, the whole village shows   up to watch it! So it goes, again and again. Unreached people experience The HOPE. For many it is their   first time to see a movie and to hear the Gospel. Some (often many)   come to Christ. A Bible study is started   with a missionary pastor returning on a regular basis to lead it. Eventually a village pastor is raised up and   a Church is planted! For a related story, see "The First Believers in Their Village."

The Help Reach Them Campaign

  • Posted: 2017-12-14

God desires to populate heaven with people from every tongue, tribe and nation. But so many are still unreached! In fact missiologists tell us that, of the world’s approximately 16,500 “ethne” (the Biblical word for nations), around 7,000 have yet to be reached with the Gospel!

The HOPE was designed to overcome 4 obstacles to reaching unreached people groups (nations) with the Gospel. Recently, we created a 3.5 min. video explaining how and why. Never before have we stopped our work on The HOPE to create a media piece about The HOPE. But it was time!

God, through His people, is using The HOPE to reach the nations. But with some help, we could do so much more! This video is part of a larger, Help Reach Them, campaign. To seize the opportunities before us, we are in need of key personnel, donors, intercessors, community networkers, social media advocates, ministry partners and more! Please visit our “Get Involved” page at www.HelpReachThem.com to watch our new video and learn about all the ways you could get involved to reach the nations! And please, feel free to share this video with as many people as possible. That is one way you can Help Reach Them!
