SAT-7 UK News&Prayer January 9 - 16





When worship programme

Keep on Singing

broadcast a special episode from Jordan, God used it

in a very powerful way. “You have made history

for Jordan,” one musician said – and SAT-7 ARABIC

viewers agreed. Many shared how the programme

showed a new vision of Jordanian Christian identity

and encouraged them to return to the Lord.

The special show featured worship songs by the

band from Karak Evangelical Church. Afterwards,

band member Mawiyah Halasa was brimming with

excitement about the show and the audience response.

“Words are not enough to express all I want to say,” she

said. “For us, it was an unforgettable time as we found

ourselves representing Jordan.”


SAT-7 ARABIC received hundreds of comments from

Keep on Singing

viewers who were moved by this episode –

and the church has, too.

“We have received so many calls and messages about

what the Lord did through this episode,” Mawiyah

shared. “And,

large numbers

of brothers

and sisters who

used to come to

church called us

to express their

passion to return

to the Lord.”


Although Jordan has been known for its relative religious

freedom, in recent years, Christians in the country have

been increasingly under pressure.

By reflecting the local culture and singing in the

Jordanian dialect, the musicians were able to send a

profound message about the legitimacy of an identity

that is both Jordanian and Christian.

“The effect of this episode goes far beyond the people

involved,” Mawiyah said. “It is much bigger than that.

The episode included a rediscovery of Jordanian identity.

This has been missing in our churches.”
