Reaching Haiti’s youth with the Gospel this summer
This summer is a little different but ministry to Haiti’s young people continues!
We’re already in week two of 4VEH’s 28 th Annual Summer Programs, to continue Monday – Friday, 10 am – 12 pm through the end of August. Please pray for presenters Newton, Berthenie and Milton as they minister to young people.
Here are some opportunities & challenges:
- With most of Haiti’s population under the age of 30, we focus during the summer on high-energy, strong-spiritual content programming to build community, share the Gospel, educate and inspire our younger listeners and viewers. With violent unrest in 2019 forcing schools to close for weeks, and the coronavirus hitting in March, with schools closed since, it’s been a stressful time. Pray for God’s blessing on Haiti’s young people this summer.
- Our summer programs started with a bang – literally! A lightening strike the night before shocked equipment. Praise God, our technicians were able to troubleshoot and adapt systems ready to broadcast.
- For the first time, this year’s Summer programs are on radio and television (and our presenters are growing their skills in this new media!) and broadcast live on all our networks – new website for Haitians, on Facebook, YouTube Live and RadioTele4VEH App
- Social distancing means no large gatherings or participation in person for our usual contests but there are lots of ways for young people to participate virtually. Pray for all who have already signed up.
Your prayers and financial support make these youth-focused programs possible. Thank you for serving God and the young (and young-at-heart) people of Haiti this summer.
