Powerful Moments from Our Iraq Women's Retreat

Iraqi Women Experience God’s Healing

Recently, through the support of ministry partners like you, Leading The Way hosted a retreat in Iraq for women who fled ISIS and are now displaced in refugee camps. It was an honor to provide these persecuted women with spiritual and physical nourishment, a time to debrief their trauma, and a safe place to heal, fellowship, and worship the Lord.

A pastoral counselor walked them through the healing process, and the women shared their stories of the suddenness of displacement and the dangers of their families’ flights to freedom and safety. But they also remembered the Lord’s mercy in the midst of their persecution.

During the final worship time at the retreat, each woman was draped with a shawl as a reminder of God’s protection and care over her. One woman shared, “I would like for everyone to know this thing -- a joy from within, to know that your soul is important to the Lord.”

This is why our Help The Persecuted ministry exists: to lift up our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ in trying times. We seek to stand with them and meet their needs whether physical, emotional, or spiritual, demonstrating the love of Christ as we serve.

As you watch footage from the retreat, you can sense the joy that God restored to these women through this experience. Thank you for your ongoing prayers and gifts, which enable us to continue helping the persecuted around the world.

You're Helping Us Reach the Unreached

You're Helping Us Reach the Unreached

For generations, missionaries labored hard and long to create tools for disseminating the Bible to the masses. William Carey devoted decades to translating Scripture into the native tongues of India; Hudson Taylor worked tirelessly to bring the Gospel to the Chinese in their language. But they struggled to overcome high illiteracy rates and the limitations of printed material in some of the darkest places in the world. Missionaries then longed for a way to penetrate that darkness with the light of God's Truth.

Today, that technology is here. Building on the work of missionaries that have gone before and incorporating the creative technology that God has brought about in our time, Leading The Way's Navigator, a solar-powered audio device, crosses barriers with God's Word and Biblical teaching from Dr. Michael Youssef.

Because it is solar-powered, it can serve those with little to know power source. Because it is an audio device, it serves those in areas with low literacy rates. Because it is digital, it can hold the Bible and solid Biblical teaching, both in native languages to equip believers and disciple new converts. And because it is discreet, it can comfort the persecuted and be hidden away and kept safe to continue to bring hope in dire circumstances.

Over the last two years, with the support of faithful partners, Leading The Way has distributed more than 100,000 Navigators to some of the most remote places in the world. Would you see thousands more receive the precious gift of the Gospel through initiatives like the Navigator?

Reach the Lost

Gypsies living in a fanatical Muslim community in Albania heard the Gospel for the first time through the Navigator and received Christ through this discreet, life-giving device that holds within it the greatest missionary: God's Word.

Equip Believers

Lepers in India longed to read God's Word, but were unable to turn the pages of their Bibles because of their atrophied hands. The Navigator brought them joy as they heard God's love through these simple-to-use devices.

Comfort the Persecuted

Syrian refugees who fled ISIS are now stuck in makeshift refugee camps in danger of sickness, poverty, and hunger. The solar-powered Navigator brings them hope as they listen to and remember God's promises.

 
God Answered Your Prayers in Cairo!

Despite the threat of political protests following a recent government decision in Egypt, roughly 5,000 people came to hear Dr. Michael Youssef preach in Cairo, Egypt, this past weekend, with many more watching via the live satellite broadcasts of THE KINGDOM SAT. At least 500 people responded to Dr. Youssef’s clear invitation to salvation during his three-day preaching event.

During the first evening of the event, a heavy military presence was outside the church bracing themselves for protests in Tahrir Square. On the last evening, brief technical issues interrupted the live broadcast. Yet in spite of distractions and spiritual opposition, God did a mighty work in the lives of those who attended, drawing many to salvation and encouraging the body of Christ.

Thank you for your prayers and partnership for this exciting three-day evangelistic outreach. We invite you to continue praying with us for these new believers in Christ and for a mighty move of God’s Spirit to continue throughout the church, city, and nation.

If you missed the livestream of the event, you can watch the services at LTW.org/Egypt.

7 Years of THE KINGDOM SAT: Arabic Worship Medley

Our satellite TV channel THE KINGDOM SAT is 7 years old this month! To celebrate, we wanted to share THE KINGDOM SAT's most popular video on YouTube—a beautiful worship medley in Arabic. The lyrics are below.

"The Lord Is Near to Those Who Call Upon Him" / "Stay With Me"


The Lord is near to those who call upon him
He is not far away as they claim
He is not unfamiliar with all they suffer from
He is the one who called all those who labor
To comfort them from their heavy laden
To wipe off tears from every sad heart

Hadn’t he lived on the run
Hadn’t he experienced pain in temptation
Hadn’t he resurrected to give us life

He loved the tax collectors
Stayed with fishermen
Forgave sinners like me

He fulfilled the needs of the needy
Walked around doing good
Died to carry the shame of the sinners
In front of a tomb, He was weeping
At the night of His death, he was kneeling down

How come I wouldn’t trust Him!
Would I doubt His love!
My Father who loved me unto death

Stay with me, my Master
The day is about to end
There is no strength to pursue living
Life is disappearing
And it is time to sleep in death

If I pass through the valley of weeping
Your presence surrounds me
In my life and death, I am dedicated to God

Where, O death, your victory
Where, O tomb, your authority
I got the crown of victory
Because my Lord is my victor

"I was astonished by God's love."

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

Dear Friend,

Without a doubt, you are aware of the absolute turmoil and chaos going on in the Middle East today.

But in the midst of all that is unfolding, you are making a tremendous impact in this region of the world.

In fact, thanks to your support, we are celebrating an exciting milestone this month: the seventh anniversary of THE KINGDOM SAT.

This international outreach was birthed out of a vision God gave me for a 24/7 satellite television channel offering sound Biblical teaching to the Muslim world -- reaching the lost and equipping believers.

Since then, it is astounding to see all God has done to grow and multiply the outreach of this dynamic broadcast ministry. With your partnership, THE KINGDOM SAT:

  • Provides Bible-based teaching in English, Arabic, French, and now Indonesian, reaching six continents of the world with Biblical encouragement.
     
  • Has grown from broadcasting five subtitled Western programs to airing programs from 50 global ministries.
     
  • Utilizes on-the-ground follow-up teams to evangelize and disciple those who reach out to us via email, social media, and phone. These teams had close to 90,000 follow-up conversations last year alone!

This unique, growing ministry allows us to be the "hands and feet" of Jesus to the Muslim world. Everything we do is meant to boldly proclaim the Truth to those who are searching -- people just like Farouk* from Iraq. He writes:

I read the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah and how Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil and how he answered. And yet, I was so confused; could Jesus be the Lord? Later, while surfing the Internet, I found THE KINGDOM SAT website. I watched Dr. Michael Youssef's programs and heard the Truth again and again. I was astonished by God's love. I accepted Christ as my Savior.

Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, God is using your partnership to lead souls out of the darkness and into the light of Christ through this channel.

Will you consider a generous gift this month to help us reach more people like Farouk -- and follow up with those seeking to know the Truth?

Thank you for your prayers and partnership. It is my great joy and honor to serve alongside you in this timely Kingdom mission.

In Christ,

Signature

Michael Youssef, Ph.D.
