The strong response numbers on from viewers are continuing into the New Year. In January of 2010, more than 11 000 Arabs contacted Miracle Channel.
-I am so tired of life and the war and all the killing and destruction around us. It is strongly affecting me and my children. Please pray for us. Thank you for your programs, they greatly encourage through these hard times.
This solemn greeting came from Thina, one of our viewers in Iraq. She was one of the more than eleven thousand viewers that contacted Miracle Channel’s follow up office in January. After Miracle Channel started broadcasting on the largest Arabic satellite network, NileSat, a large number of new viewers are making themselves known through responses to the channel as well. One of them is Abdallah from Yemen;
Peace be with you. I am wondering where I can get a bible. This is very important to me. Perhaps you can send one to me through the internet? Thank you, and congratulations with your broadcasts on NileSat!
Since Miracle Channel also broadcasts on Hotbird, the channel can be watched by Arabs all over Europe and east into Russia, something the following e-mail confirms;
”My name is Ziyiad and I come from Tunisia, but now I live in Russia. I started watching the Miracle Channel and I would like to receive a bible and the correspondence course ”The New Life.”
Altogether, the response in the month of January came from 45 countries via phone calls, letters, e-mails, text messaging and the Internet.
