Reaching Arabs with the Love of Jesus Christ in Their Own Tongue

Reaching Arabs with the Love of Jesus Christ in Their Own Tongue

The Washington Times has an encouraging news piece that should encourage the hearts of all who love the LORD and who love Arabs.

An Arabic-speaking American businessman named Samuel Estefanos – who immigrated to this country from Egypt – has used his own funds (as well as donations from others) to launch an Arabic-language Christian television broadcasting channel that is already reaching viewers from Mexico to Canada.

The program broadcasts programs in various Arabic dialects, including those of Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Egypt.

The broadcasts are drawing interested contacts from viewers – a sure sign that they are being heard.

The name of the channel is Alkarma, which means “The Vineyard.”  

The channel also does some broadcasting in English, including some programming for children, as well as parts of “The 700 Club.”
