Leading The Way Reaches Indonesia With Satellite TV

KINGDOM SAT MAPOn May 1, Leading The Way's 24/7 satellite television channel, THE KINGDOM SAT, began to broadcast on the popular Palapa D satellite, which reaches all of Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim nation.

Now, for the first time in history, the Indonesian people have free-to-air television access via satellite to over 50 evangelical preachers, all handpicked by Leading The Way for their commitment to sound biblical teaching.

"Leading The Way has been actively broadcasting in Indonesia for years through radio, television and a large Navigator distribution project," reported the ministry on Monday. "The latest expansion of THE KINGDOM SAT will contribute significantly to the mission of ‘Leading The Way to Revival’ throughout Indonesia."

The launch of THE KINGDOM SAT comes ahead of Leading The Way's upcoming three-day revival and outreach event in Indonesia that will be held May 23-24 in Jakarta's Isotora Senayan (Indoor Stadium).

"Leading The Way to Revival in Indonesia" is being organized by a team in Jakarta comprising volunteers from many different denominations. To date, the team has mobilized 300 prayer intercessors, 100 ushers, 300 counselors, 150 security guards, dozens of singers, musicians and many others who will be working behind the scenes to get the Istora stadium ready for the revival.

The three-night event will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Jakarta time and will be telecast live throughout Indonesia via LIFE Channel by Indovision, worldwide via THE KINGDOM SAT, and through the Internet via www.leadingtheway.org.

According to the ministry, intercessory teams are praying all over the world: in Indonesia, Australia, America, and even in the Middle East. A list of the ministry's prayer requests can be viewed here.
