The International Telecommunication Union (May 2014) estimates that there are nearly 7 billion mobile subscriptions worldwide, an amount equivalent to 95.5 percent of the world’s population. In fact, mobile Web usage has overtaken PC-based Web usage in several developing nations, including China. (See “Global Mobile Statistics 2014,” mobiForge.com).
Al Hayat Ministries shows by its multilayered technological outreach that it deeply understands these user patterns, especially in developing countries in Africa and the Middle East, where fixed Web penetration is low. Mobile phone users there can view Al Hayat’s satellite TV programs, communicate with program hosts, download Al Hayat’s mobile apps, and connect with other believers for follow-up ministry and support. With the recent development of solar-powered mobile phones, even those seekers in power-starved areas can reach out to hear the truth.
Through this technological outreach of Al Hayat Ministries, countless people from a Muslim background—many for the first time—can now hear about Jesus Christ and evaluate His promises in the safety and privacy of their own homes.
