“Channel North Africa” recently acquired a much needed resource in the form of a building with offices and an attached hangar that will serve as the new location for CNA.
This marks the completion of Phase III of CNA's strategic plan, a vision given by the Lord and defined in 2008;
- Phase I, the establishing of a playout system and web-streaming channel was achieved in December 2011;
- Phase II, the 24 hour satellite broadcast was achieved in December of 2012;
- and on June 30th 2014, Phase III was accomplished with the acquisition of premises that will serve as office space and production studio.
These premises correspond exactly with the criteria established in the CNA strategic plan six years earlier and are a real blessing for the entire CNA team.
We see the hand of God in each part of this journey, and we want to give Him the glory for what He has done! Pray with us that this new center will be a blessing and a powerful tool to avance His kingdom!
A big THANK YOU as well to our CNA partners for the finances and logistics necessary to accomplish this vision.
The CNA team

CNA partners with many ministries and at the beginning of Summer partnered with UFM (Unreached Field Missions) to shoot a youth series in Tunisian Arabic of 13 episodes called Shabbah Xpress. There is a strong possibility that this series will be ongoing. It is expected to air in December 2013.
This is a new venture, and we hope there will be more productions like this in the future.

Prior to the summer break in France (July/August), CNA received a couple from the US who came to help with our websites. We would like to express our appreciation for the hundreds of hours of detailed work they did in order to create new functionality on our sites. Some of you may have noticed that our Website has changed look. What you may not have noticed is that there is now some very useful new funtionality available to visitors:
Testimonies - each time you visit our site you will see a different testimony on the left hand side of the page. By clicking on "Exciting testimonies" on the top of the page you can read another 10 taken from more than 150 testimonies that CNA has received.
Bible verses - each front page of our website now contains a Bible verse from a selection that was made by us.
Program schedule - by clicking on "Program schedule" on the top of the page you can see what is being broadcast on CNA at any time. If you want to see what will be broadcast on a future day you can also select a desired date and get its schedule. The titles of each series have been translated into both English and French. If you are interested in any particular series click on the time (highlighted in blue) and you will bring up a list of when that particular series will be broadcast in the future.
We are working towards extending this same functionality to two more languages: Arabic and Kabyle with the goal of providing a friendly website for speakers of these languages.

CNA moves house
This coming summer CNA will be moving all its equipment to another location in the south of France. We would value your prayers for the logistics of this move. Three families need to purchase properties in the chosen area - finding suitable and acceptably priced accommodation and in some cases close enough to schools for children. Please pray with us for the Lord to enable for and oversee this move.
Production team growing
CNA is now privileged to have several new volunteers - some who are working nearly full time in the production department. Amongst these are two musicians who are composing for the channel. These volunteers are working together in a decentralised fashion using email and video conferencing as their main communication tools. This growing team is a great encouragement to CNA. Our production output is increasing!
We take this opportunity to let you know that we are seeking ongoing help in the areas of web site administration, development and social networking. We are equipped and very happy to collaborate with people on these areas working from wherever they are currently based and giving just a few hours each week.
Recently the channel has experienced some small disruptions because of maintenance and equipment issues in the installation of our satellite provider. During the same period CNA's signal travelling via fibre optic to the UK experienced a sudden and serious reduction in quality. CNA was able to rapidly install a dedicated computer based solution to solve this problem. We are very pleased to have this permanent and cost effective solution.
Follow up results
The following graph summarizes the communications that CNA has received since going full time on satellite. It is clear that the number of communications each month is gradually growing from an initial 1000 per month towards well over 1500.
What these numbers do not show is the quality and amount of dialogue that is happening between CNA's follow up partners and contacts. The partners are doing a great job! Every month we receive reports with details of many many hours of conversations, of prayers for pressing needs and of answers to these prayers. We read of believers who have called when discouraged and who have been encouraged and strengthened to go on. We read of families reconciled.
CNA asks you to pray specifically for their follow up partners working in follow up in Algeria. They are dealing with 'attacks or threats on every side'. They have had literal threats from those who would wish them harm and are also facing real challenges in their health. They specifically solicit your prayers.
