Fellowship and faith in action

01 June 2024

Kanal Hayat broadcasts Christian content into Turkey and surrounding countries, using their website, YouTube channel and other social media platforms. Despite the strong opposing cultures in the region and the increasing risks from extremist groups, their programmes continue to open people’s hearts to Jesus. Their follow-up network provides a way for viewer responses to be answered with either a home visit or by introducing them to local Christians and churches to connect with.

Please join with us in praising God for some recent highlights in Kanal Hayat’s ministry:

  • They have reached 38,000 subscribers on their YouTube channel!
  • The follow-up network met in-person with more than 400 people over the first quarter of 2024, many of whom have given their lives to Christ. 
  • There is a growing openness towards the Gospel in Turkey.
  • God has been protecting everyone involved in Kanal Hayat, despite the risks they face. 
  • They have received many testimonies and encouragements, including the following:

“I live in a village in Bulgaria. There is no fellowship nearby. So Kanal Hayat’s channel is my fellowship. I praise God for their ministry!” Ferdiye, a Kanal Hayat viewer


However, they are not without hardships. Martin, ministry leader of Kanal Hayat, shared this:

"God continues to use Kanal Hayat’s Gospel-centred programmes to reconcile with His children. It comes as no surprise that as the Kingdom sees results, impact and more people won, we face challenges, uncertainty and difficulties. I cannot elaborate on these experiences and challenges, but please pray for our protection, open doors and favour. I am thankful for how God constantly turns all challenges and difficulties into opportunities to further grow our ministerial impact."

Please join with us in praying for:
Increased financial support for Kanal Hayat in a time of roaring inflation in Turkey.
A new studio in Istanbul in order to enhance quality and efficiency.
Success in recruiting two new staff members: a Co-ordinator and a Production Assistant.
God’s guidance and counsel on their upcoming conferences for the programme hosts.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” - Romans 8:28
