NEW FROM DR. MICHAEL YOUSSEF

Jesus told us that the final "birth pain" preceding His return will be the proclamation of the Gospel to the farthest corners of the globe (see Matthew 24:14). As the time of Christ's return draws near, our work together is intensifying as we take the Gospel to hostile nations, war-torn regions, and remote lands. For example, on February 24, 2022—the very day the war in Ukraine broke out—members of our team heard from our trusted partners on the ground. They were desperate for prayer. As Dr. Youssef and the Leading The Way team began crying out to God, He made it clear: We must do something to share Jesus with the Ukrainian people in new ways.

Your support has enabled Leading The Way to minister on the spiritual frontlines.

Through your partnership, God was already at work. Just a few months prior, a shipment of Navigators had landed in Ukraine and Russia. On top of that, Leading The Way was able to expedite the production of Dr. Youssef's TV programs into the Ukrainian language. Just weeks after the war began, these new broadcasts were on television sets and smartphones in Ukraine and other neighboring countries. We then added a Ukrainian citizen to our field team, who began to minister directly to both people responding to our Ukrainian broadcasts and those commenting on our new Ukrainian social media pages.

Ukraine is just one instance of how our Lord has worked through your generosity to proclaim Truth in times of turmoil. Over the last year, your support has also enabled Dr. Michael Youssef and Leading The Way to minister on the spiritual frontlines both here at home and around the world.

This is how your partnership has fueled massive ministry momentum in 2022:

January:

  • New Navigators: Leading The Way rang in the new year by distributing 150 of these solar-powered audio devices to the School for the Blind in Sierra Leone. In total, our on-the-ground partners distributed Navigators in 13 different languages to 25 countries this year.


February:

  • Evangelizing Israel: New Hebrew-dubbed TV programs began broadcasting daily—reaching Jewish people more effectively for Christ.
  • War in Ukraine: Leading The Way fast-tracked production of programs in Ukrainian.

  • THE KINGDOM SAT: As Muslims celebrated a major Islamic holiday, our satellite TV channel and on-the-ground field team shared Jesus—the only sacrifice able to redeem us from eternal judgment.


September

  • Reaching Muslims in America: Our on-the-ground team shared Christ in a strategic door-to-door evangelistic campaign in Dearborn, Michigan—home to the largest concentration of Arabic-speaking Muslims outside the Middle East.
  • Freedom for Iran: As the Iranian people protested their oppressive government, Leading The Way helped them find freedom in Christ—broadcasting the Gospel on TV in the Farsi language and daily ministering to viewers through our field team. This is just one way God is using your partnership to reach the Middle East for Christ.
