HEARTS RIPE FOR HARVEST: GHM & MOHABAT TV, A HEART-WINNING TEAM

Technology Goes Where We Can’t

Many Christians are  inspired by the testimonies of missionaries ministering in countries where the Gospel is completely unknown or mostly unheard of.  These testimonies are thrilling and GHM wishes we could share the same sort of stories about Central Asia, but we can’t.  Our target countries are completely closed to traditional missionary efforts.

Not only are foreign missionaries banned from entering Central Asian countries, but believers inside these countries can lose their freedom, even their lives and the lives of their families, for sharing the Gospel.  So, we had to find another way to reach the lost, and technology provides that opportunity.

Everyone in Central Asia has a satellite!

Satellite broadcasting skips over borders, slips past the secret police and arrives unaltered in the homes of people all over Iran, Turkey and Central Asia.  Mohabat TV is one of the satellite companies which broadcasts our programs.

 The Gospel in Heart Languages

While governments and nations may set up borders and proclaim official languages, they cannot put boundaries on the hearts of people, nor can they mandate which language will speak to those hearts.  Azerbaijani-speaking people living in Iran are a perfect example of this.  The Soviet Union once forced people to speak Russian, but the heart languages of the people persisted within their people groups.  One of the goals of GHM is to reach out to the people of these regions in the languages which touch their hearts.
Recently one of the Mohabat TV hosts had very encouraging words for GHM about our efforts.  Ellia has an Iranian talk show and she takes phone calls during on her program.  In recent years she has noticed something.  More and more of the people calling into her Iranian program speak with an Azerbaijani accent!  She is convinced they call her because they’ve been watching Sweet Conversations, a GHM women’s talk show in Azerbaijani.  Listen to what she says:

Help Reap the Harvest

Like Mohabat TV, you can partner with Global Heart Ministries to fulfill The Great Commission in this generation. Together we can bring the light and the truth of Jesus Christ right into the living rooms of every deceived child, every oppressed woman and every hurting home. This is our message. This is our call.

We invite you to join this vision as a volunteer, a prayer warrior or a financial donor. Contact us today by phone or email. Let us know how you’d like to partner with us as we reach out to the Most Unreached regions of the world.
