You know how exciting it is to reach a long-term goal. You have helped GNPI reach a milestone with one of our most ambitious projects. It’s a special series airing for children in the Middle East.
A ministry partner in Cyprus has produced The Global Gospel (TGG) as a new series called Jesus Story which is a televised program for kids and includes an introduction, several stories, and a closing about the main theme in 13 half-hour episodes.
The Arabic Jesus Story series began airing last month on SAT-7 KIDS with nearly five million youth from the ages of 6-13 viewing the programs in the Arabic language alone! The release date was close to the 10-year anniversary of the station. Viewers tune in from every country in the region, with the largest audience in Egypt, followed by Syria, Morocco, and Yemen. Christian workers are following up with Jesus Story viewers on two different Facebook groups and distributing children’s books as a supplement to the series. A SAT-7 program director says the project is the most biblically based content he’s ever aired. Additional production has moved quickly, and the Jesus Story will soon be released in Farsi and Turkish.
