Praise & Prayer Needs
We recently received word that the Joshua Fund will continue sponsoring the TTB-Arabic radio broadcasts on five local stations in the Middle East for another six months. Praise God for His provision!
In mid-May, the Arabic satellite TV production team in Alexandria, Egypt, completed recording their second year of programming. What began as an experimental pilot is now a thriving ministry! Our Kolel Ketab YouTube channel has just surpassed 100,000 views. Please keep this important ministry in your prayers.
Hanna Shahin recently shared this encouraging news about our Arabic-TV production: “I am writing to encourage you by saying that last month saw the first responses from Lebanese viewers to the television programs. From many years of experience, I know firsthand that materialistic countries like Lebanon, Israel, and others do not respond well to broadcasts in general. For many years that was also true of Tunisia in North Africa, in contrast to huge responses from Algeria and Morocco. I also know firsthand from my decades in radio ministry that Lebanon figured at the bottom of the Arab nations when it came to response to programs. So it was rather surprising and refreshing when our Lebanese leader reported having received a number of calls from Lebanese viewers.” Praise the Lord! Please pray for these Lebanese viewers and that even more would watch and respond to what they’re learning about God’s Word and His love for them.
Praise God for the encouraging response to our new Arabic satellite-TV broadcast! We have had over 13,000 views on our Arabic YouTube channel. This program airs four times per day via satellite to the Middle East, northern Africa, southern Europe, Australia, and North America! Pray for God to continue to use this exciting new outreach.
In order to minister to the many immigrant populations now living in Holland, TWR-Netherlands began providing TTB’s Dutch, Arabic, English, English (African), Somali, Turkish, Romanian, and Persian programs on their local website. Users can access TTB in these languages via podcasts, downloads, CDs, mp3-players, apps for mobile phone, web radio, and online streaming. A local foundation in Holland is providing the necessary funding to make this ministry possible. Please pray for the success of this outreach.
Pray for peace and political stability throughout the Middle East and North Africa so that the gospel may continue to be aired without disruption. Pray also that governments in this region of the world would endorse complete religious freedom. Believers in countries where those freedoms currently are not available are also in need of our prayers for protection and courage.

Email from Rami in Egypt: Prayer is the key for solving our dilemmas; I depend on it now since all doors are closed to escape the persecution we live with every day. Thanks for your prayers, and thanks for sharing with us the truth from the Word of God; yes, truth frees us from fear and worry. Please don’t ignore Egypt in your prayers, pray that God will bring His will about in this beloved country. I am determined to continue to listen to TTB Arabic, and especially to the studies from the gospel of John. Don’t forget to pray for us so God will fill His peace in the area, because the war is rising. But God’s promise is true: “In this world you will have troubles, but take heart! I have overcome the world.” We are waiting for Him to fulfill His promises, for He is honest and just.
