Challenges for Prayer

Media ministry. No anti-proselytism laws can prevent the airwaves and Internet from influencing Qatar. Pray that gospel radio (FEBA, IBRA and others), TV (Al Hayat, SAT-7 and others) and Christian websites might penetrate the homes and hearts of those living in Qatar. The programmes of Father Zakaria make a great impact in Qatar and throughout the Arab world. Many Arabic language sites, chat rooms and programmes seem to have a powerful effect.
