A Christian media organization is supporting isolated believers in Yemen, as the nation’s Houthi rebels continue to launch attacks in one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.

 

Broadcaster SAT-7 is one of very few Christian broadcasters active in Yemen, a nation in turmoil after nearly a decade of civil war.

 

SAT 7’s US president Rex Rogers says their goal is to make God’s love visible to the entire region and to let the isolated Christians in Yemen know that they are not forgotten:

 

“We try to talk to what we call the isolated believers.  There’s an estimate that there’s around 40,000 Christians in the various regions of Yemen and the Lord hasn’t forgotten them. So we try to speak to them to say that the body of Christ, the church worldwide hasn’t forgotten them and they’re praying for them.

 

And we get calls every day from people all over the Middle East, including in Yemen, who are seeking help.  Some have said I’ve come to Christ, some who say I want to know more about this Jesus, I want a Bible.”

 

And SAT 7 is hoping their broadcasts will even impact the Houthi rebels themselves who they say need the Gospel too.
