Satellite Television Outreach Season 2
The second season of our TV program Balshi min hon began to be broadcasted on Sat-7 TV station.
1 September 2015
Amman, Jordan (ACCTS-AWT) – The 1st of September witnessed the broadcast of our second season of the Satellite Television Program Balshi min hon which means Start from here.
The Satellite TV broadcast has been launched with the aim of having a program which empowers and equips the Arab woman so that she might pursue change in her personal, spiritual, and social life. We aspire to motivate the Arab woman to believe in herself and embrace her abilities, eventually reaching a well-balanced life.
We also seek from the program to empower women through biblical leadership skills based on the word of God. Through the broadcast, viewers are motivated to start a change in patterns of thinking, habits, and ways of communication, and above all to start a change in their life journey by following Jesus.
Viewers are motivated to start a change
This year was special by all means. Thirteen new episodes focused on the different aspects of a “Balanced life”. Two staff from AWT presented the program along with one volunteer. The shooting took place at Sat-7 studios, Beirut, Lebanon and broadcast was repeated in 2016 on Sat-7 channel.
Whereas, SAT-7 is the pioneer of Arabic satellite broadcast stations in the world. It filled the Middle East with the gospel message when the area lacked any TV ministry. Sat-7 Network broadcasts across 22 countries in the Middle East and North Africa, along with 50 countries in Europe. In 2014, the overall viewing audience of all channels is estimated at over 15 million. It reaches into the homes of a potential audience of 4 million Arab viewers across the USA and Canada.
Episodes during this season consisted of practical real life issues of great importance and relevance to women, such as: Life Roles, Wheel of life, Delegation or Going Solo, Work, Service, Health, Friendship, Finance, Romance in marriage, Body language, Living Joyfully, Etiquette, and Spiritual Balance.
Since the Arab woman is living in a culture that mistreats her, we sought from this broadcast to motivate the Arab woman to start a change that she needs to step forward to.

Our first season was broadcasted in September 2014, followed by a second season this past September 2015. The heart of the ministry was poured out into 13 episodes during this second season; AWT staff members created and presented all content for the 2nd season episodes. The 30 to 34 minutes episode consists of three main segments: An introductory segment from outside the studio (a provoking question, vox pop or participations), presenters’ dialogue, and the spiritual message at the end.
Recording and editing took place at SAT-7 headquarters in Lebanon. The episodes were broadcast on a weekly basis over a span of three months and were later repeated for another three months. The TV material is being used by women who have previously benefited from AWT trainings. They minister in places such as Jordan, Kuwait, Cairo and Israel. Balshi Min Hon is being promoted to secular venues inside and outside Jordan, and at major AWT outreach events.
We aspire from the program that women would engage in private social media conversations after watching the program, in order to develop a closer relationship and to obtain guidance for dealing with personal needs. We also seek that women groups within churches outside Amman would become aware of the program and become advocates for it.
Social Media creates followers and fans who are interested in watching the program repeatedly, which boosts viewing rates. Follow-up with viewers is done through our Program Page on Facebook on a daily basis. Viewers include those watching TV and those watching through our YouTube channel.
Interaction with viewers happens through YouTube, Facebook, and Gmail
Through each broadcast, the viewer has the chance to hear the gospel message and the biblical perspective on each topic, as well as a word of encouragement from the Bible.
