“God changed my life. He gave me hope and made me a person who loves goodness, all because of Miracle Channel”, says Warkala from Algeria. He is one of 211,164 viewers who sought Christ by responding to our channel in 2012.
Miracle Channel is also pleased to report that our YouTube Channel had 246, 330views and that Miracle Channel got 57,145 new Facebook friends on their Arabic Facebook pages for different programs.-We are very humbled by these reports and we frankly feel like the boy with five loaves and two fish. We are only a small player in a big field, yet we are a tool that God uses to feed the people in the Arab world who are hungry for truth, says a spokesperson for Miracle Channel.
He believes that the cutting edge live programs, inviting our Muslim audience to interact on air and via social media, are important to this development, but is quick to add that it is hard to pinpoint any single factor that explains the large numbers of viewers contacting the channel. We currently receive between 13 thousand to 18 thousand responses every single month. People in the Arab world are restless and looking for change. As many of them already have a strong desire to know God, they are using television and the social media to find information that has been denied them for centuries.
The response result by region in 2012 is as following:
28,302 responses from North Africa, 51,240 from the Middle East, 72,522 fromEurope and 51,536 from the Gulf countries. At least 75 percent of the respondents come from Arab Muslims.
These are the kind of responses that Miracle Channel get:
A Muslim girl:
“I learned to pray by coincidence as I saw it on a program on Miracle Channel, and it was one of the reasons why I accepted Jesus as my personal savior. I am from a Muslim background. I listen to worship songs and read on the net, but have nothing firm that builds my relationship with God. How do I start my life with Jesus?”
“Miracle Channel is a great channel and I wish you more followers and supporters. May God give you back for all the love.”
“I am very happy that I am writing this email to you and am very glad that you follow up with me through the phone and I don’t feel alone here in my country. I have felt for years that I cannot share my faith with anyone since I experienced Jesus as my savior. I am grateful for your channel that I can watch constantly. I am happy to be in contact with you and my desire is to study theology and become God’s disciple.”
“Hey. I am very fond of your channel and I have been following it since the day I found it. I began to pray with you and feel the joy and relief after I got to know God and strengthened my faith.”
Man from Saudi Arabia:
“He calls often and we keep in contact with him. He accepted Jesus as his personal savior in 2007 and has now begun to become open about his beliefs. He is originally from Yemen, but he works with gold. He will be baptized as soon as possible. He is trying to strengthen his beliefs via the internet, but he is very afraid of being caught.”
“Thank you to Miracle Channel for your attention and care. You were the road that opened my heart and made me accept God and Jesus as my personal savior. The New Life lessons were huge step for me to build my faith, and I have learned a lot from them. I have no church that I can visit. I would like to belong to a church in Algeria.”
“Peace and grace to you. I am one of those who love Miracle Channel, and it is probably one of the best Christian channels made. My husband and I watch it often and enjoy the programs. I wish you success. May God bless you.”
“I am a young man from Syria who fled the country and I have a wife who is still in Syria and I know nothing about her. Please pray for us in Syria.”
A large number of the viewers are interested in regular correspondence and long-term follow up as they commit their lives to Jesus Christ. Please pray that the new believers will be safe and that God will continue to provide for their needs.
