The new power system is in and the Radio Station can now function as long as they wish. One gallon
of gasoline will now power the station for 6 hours! This is fantastic and enabling us to serve the people of South Haiti
as we want. The Word of God will have no problem getting out to the masses of people who need to know that there is
a Savior, and his name is JESUS!
Next project is putting the
Station on line so that Creole speaking people will be able to hear Semence FM anywhere in the world!.
Pray with us that these funds will be found to achieve this goal soon.
We praise the
Lord from whom all blessings flow, and also thank our sponsors whose faithful assistance has enabled God's work to be able
to go forward!
Things are moving forward ! Radio Semence is in the process of transitioning to a new power setup
which should allow it to remain on the air longer at a lower cost. The system employs a type of generator that sissal
growers use to shred their crop. It requires less gas to operate longer and will provide enough current to run the Radio's
We are also investigating ways to put the Station online as so many other radio stations
have done. Those of our local listeners who have to leave the area to relocate in Port au Prince would continue to be
able to listen to our programming.
Schools are gearing up to restart the scholastic year in October.
Many of the private Christian schools, which make up the majority of schools in Haiti, are hurting as the government gives
them no aid. The weather has been unkind to our farmers and crops have been lost. There is hunger and diminished
funds to pay for their kid's education. Schools are hurting with the depletion of funds.
greatly appreciate those who have continued to sponsor Haitian kids in the 6 Christian schools that we give budgetary assistance.
This is the only way that the schools are able to pay their teachers and to keep the school.
is Reformation Month and we celebrate this by doing special programming helping our listeners to understand why it was necessary
for the Reformation to occur and its importance and relevance today. Brother Obriant Ilnea will be holding special services
and roundtable discussions with the youth and this should be especially interesting.
do not celebrate Halloween, but they do celebrate Nov. 1 and 2 as days when the dead are venerated and spirits are placated
in cemeteries to ensure their help and to avoid trouble. Voudou services are held in the dark of the night and the drums
will be heard in the distant mountains.
Please to keep us lifted in prayer as there are always
challenges from the Evil one that try to disrupt. BUT...greater is He who is in us, that he who is in the world!
