​Evangelism: Intimidating, Yet Beautiful

July 21 2017

Let’s be honest, sharing the Gospel is intimidating. Why? Just as public speaking causes great anxiety for many people across the nations so does evangelism. This fear may derive from an innate desire to be liked among our fellow humans. Sometimes, we have to receive a little push out of our comfort zone to overcome this fear.

That is what it took for me. God pushed me out of my comfort zone by sending me on a short-term mission trip to Cap Haitien, Haiti, where I participated in door-to-door evangelism in a rural village with no electricity or running water, but with a rich voodoo presence. As the team prepared to go out, fear and anxiety took the lead in our minds. I could tell from the facial expressions of my teammates that I wasn’t the only who felt ill equipped and a little shaky when thinking about confronting a witch doctor with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We met with the local pastor in this rural village, went over the evangelism technique we were to use, prayed together, and then set out on our mission. The visit to the first home was a little rough. My partner and I equally had no clue what to say. Despite the brief evangelism overview prior to going out, we had no true training or preparation to “properly” share the Gospel. I kept frantically praying in the back of my mind for the Spirit to speak through me, but was met with what felt like silence from the Lord. As we approached the fifth house, I felt the Spirit nudge me saying, “Just share what I have done in your life, like Paul did.” So, I told my partner to give the presentation of the Gospel, and I would share my testimony.

We greeted the five boys who were sitting outside of the home, and I felt the Lord with me. I knew he was going to do something miraculous. Even though there was a language and cultural barrier, as I shared my testimony, I could see one boy, who seemed to be the leader of the group, genuinely connected with my story. His name is Johnny. The Lord clearly drew my attention toward him, which set him apart from the group. When I was done sharing, I simply asked if they would like to have a story of transformation similar to mine by giving their life to Jesus. They all said yes! As we said the prayer of repentance, all the boys, except Johnny, slowly stopped repeating the words in the prayer. Later, we walked by the house on our way back to the church and Johnny was eagerly listening the Resounding Hope radio we gave him. This radio, fix-tuned to OMS’ Radio 4VEH radio station and downloaded with an audio Bible in Creole, serves as a wonderful discipling tool because most Haitians who live in rural areas are illiterate, so cannot read the Bible. I am excited for what God has in store for Johnny! I know he will do great things for God in his village.

This trip has taught me that sharing my testimony is completely essential in the light of eternity, and although it may be a little intimidating, when given to the Lord, it is absolutely empowering and beautiful. I have returned from Haiti with a fiery passion to share what God has done and is doing in my life with those I come in contact with daily. You can make a difference where you are right now with what God has given you. I exhort you to not let fear cause you to hide God’s greatness. The power and transformation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ does not come from any evangelism training or knowledge but purely from the Spirit of the living God. He deserves to be shared with your neighbor, parents, kids, that woman in the grocery store, that man on the street, and with all people. So today, pray that God would help you share his greatness with all those around you, even through your weakness, fear, and anxiety.

“And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” ~1 Corinthians 2:1-5

Lost Keys and Prayer

October 15 2015

One of Haiti's chief government officials had arrived at our Radio 4VEH studio to record a public interest program. Seated at the microphone, he suddenly realized he had left his notebook in the car. Worse yet, he had locked his keys inside, which was the reason for the frustration we were seeing through the studio window.

We had just finished staff devotions, led by Gaudin Charles on Luke 18:8, "When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?" Immediately, several of our fellows gathered around the car and tried every imaginable suggestion for retrieving the keys - but nothing worked! The crowd was multiplying because Haitians are inquisitive, and they wanted to see what was happening

Louisa Destine, our prayer warrior and woman of faith, began walking toward the reception room with her thoughts ablaze, "Why don't we put our faith to work? God can do a miracle, if we obey Him."

By this time, the irritated official was pounding on the car door and window. All at once, he stopped and blurted out, "On the radio you preach about faith in God and that he will answer your prayers. Why aren't you praying now?"

Goaded by this challenge, Louisa quickly teamed with coworkers in intercession. "God, you heard this man. We know you answer prayer. Glorify yourself; don't let us be ashamed. Make a way ... make a way, Jesus, make a way ..." she pleaded.

At that time, a young mother, Madame Manno, drove in to pick up her children at Cowman School. Louisa felt she should run over to that car as though Jesus was saying "There are the keys!"

"Madame Manno, give me your keys, Jesus said these are the keys to open this man's car!" Louisa shouted. The young mother laughed, "You can try, but they won't work in another car!"

With confidence, Louisa took the keys and ran over to the official. "We just asked God to make a way to open your car door. Use these keys. In Jesus' name, use these keys!"

The look on his face revealed his thoughts, "Are you going to make a fool of me?" Others of us stood with pounding hearts! Louisa said, "Put the key in the door, in Jesus name, put the key in the door!"

There was silence, then reluctantly the government official thrust the key in the lock … turned it … and click. The door opened!

Over the shouting of the shocked bystanders, the unmistakable voice of Louisa was heard. "Blessed be the Lord, Blessed be the name of the Lord. Benit soit l'Eternel."

Dumbfounded, the official added his proclamation, "Your God is alive, your God is alive, I, too, believe, I, too, believe!"

Recording the program was forgotten as the official got into his car and drove away. But, he, along with those who saw it, will never forget that prayer was the key, and faith unlocked the door that day!

I know what the Bible says because I listen to Radio 4VEH

June 30 2015

In the 1960s, the team at Radio 4VEH, One Mission Society’s radio ministry in Haiti, realized that most people across Haiti did not have a radio receiver to listen to Radio 4VEH. So, they began the ministry’s first distribution campaign of radios fix-tuned to Radio 4VEH. About 2,000 radios were assembled by a team of engineers and given out to communities, sharing the message of Jesus and reinforcing community development.

Communities would listen to the radio together; in many villages, coming around the radio to listen to a church service was the first time they had church in those villages, and many churches were planted as a result. But these bulky units needed frequent battery replacement. Today, as part of the Resounding Hope initiative, we give out solar-powered radios (now also with audio Bible in Haitian Creole) as part of evangelism and outreach alongside local churches, connecting families in need with daily hope and help from Radio 4VEH.

Did you know:

  • 4 in 5 people in Haiti live in poverty, surviving on less than $2 a day?
  • 4 in 5 adults in Haiti cannot read or write well enough to cope with daily life?

Many Haitians live without reliable electricity and can’t afford to buy a radio or replace batteries. That’s why we give out solar-powered, hand-held radios fix-tuned to Radio 4VEH, with an audio New Testament in Haiti’s mother tongue, Haitian Creole. Each radio reaches about six people every day with a message of hope and help.

“I’m 65 years old. I can’t even write my name. But I know what the Bible says because I listen to it on Radio 4VEH”

Radio 4VEH has been serving God and the Haitian people since 1950; we celebrated our 65th anniversary on June 2.

How to help:

1. One of the best ways to reach, teach, and serve the people of Haiti is as a monthly donor to Radio 4VEH. Monthly donors provide steady, reliable funds that help take care of regular expenses to produce and broadcast radio programs that make a lasting difference in listeners’ lives. Your support every month will transform lives, one listener at a time.

A monthly gift of $25 will sponsor a 30-minute radio program. Become a 4VEH monthly donor today by clicking here for #469960.

2. We’re at a critical time of year at Radio 4VEH, when donations are often well below regular monthly expenses. Your partnership is urgently needed to help raise $54,000 this summer so that life-transforming radio programs continue to reach people with the Gospel. Would you pray and consider how you can help? Make your donation today at: https://onemissionsociety.org/give/radio-4veh.

trategic prayer requests:

Equipment is a constant challenge at Radio 4VEH. From generators that provide electricity every day to internet service that allows us to reach Haitians online, from computers that record and broadcast programs to the air-conditioning in the building that keeps people and equipment functioning when it’s 100 degrees outside. Please pray for the Lord’s hand on our equipment, for those who maintain and fix the equipment when parts are not easily available, and for funds needed to replace critical equipment this year (computers, air conditioning).

Staff: Many of our staff serve as pastors and lay-leaders of their local churches and outreach ministries, in addition to their roles at Radio 4VEH. Please pray for the Lord to bless them, their families, churches and ministries, and to strengthen and encourage them in their daily roles at Radio 4VEH.

Radio 4VEH Celebrates 65th Anniversary

June 2 2015

65th Anniversary: 2 June 1950 - 2 June 2015

By Storly Michel, Station Director, Radio 4VEH

It’s a really special week: we’re celebrating the 65th anniversary of Radio 4VEH and inviting listeners, supporters, and friends to join with us in our anniversary theme: Praise the Lord, let everything that has breath, praise the LORD!

Among the celebrations are:

  • Worship services in honor of 4VEH’s 65th anniversary in Cap-Haitien and among the Haitian evangelical community in New York
  • A soccer match between two top teams in Cap-Haitien (Haitians love soccer!)
  • And we’re launching a new ministry, long-requested by our listeners - 4VEH TV - on a local TV station in Cap-Haitien

On the air, a series of special programs this week includes many calls and comments from listeners—and their stories are thanks to the prayers, financial support, work, and encouragement of so many people who are a part of Radio 4VEH ministry. What better way for us to celebrate together than to share some testimonies from our listeners, for the glory of God and the encouragement of his people.

As we thank God for 65 years, we fix our eyes on the task ahead, as we continue to serve God and the Haitian people as the Evangelistic Voice of Haiti. Happy 65th Anniversary!

​Radio 4VEH Celebrates its 64th Anniversary This Week!

June 4 2014

“How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” Romans 10: 14-15

Beautiful, indeed, are the many servants of God who work at Radio 4VEH and have given Haitians the opportunity to hear the Good News of the Gospel for 64 years. On June 2, 1950, the first radio program was transmitted, and God’s faithfulness and provision has been at work in Haiti through Radio 4VEH ever since. This week, we celebrate Radio 4VEH’s anniversary with the theme: “With God, we are able!”— a wonderful reminder that it is only because of God that millions of Haitians are reached every day.

This 24-hour radio station has become a lifeline for so many Haitians in so many ways. For some, it has been their only source of breaking news and necessary information. For others, they have heard, understood, and accepted God’s truth that is shared often across the airwaves. Physically and spiritually, this radio station continues to impact lives across Haiti.

One listener writes, “We can never say thank you enough for the kind of blessing 4VEH brings to our home, our life, every day. This kind of blessing doesn't have a price tag…this is a life-saving radio!”

However, there are more than 4.3 million people in the northern Haiti area of who have lost their signal due to aging AM towers. Even though the station is recently out of debt (BIG PRAISE!), the station is certainly not out of needs. Through a project called “Restore the Signal,” Radio 4VEH is hoping to raise enough funds to fix the two AM towers, protect the towers’ site by improving security, and completing a perimeter wall. The project has already received 95 percent of its funds, but it still needs $20,000 in order for the project to be entirely funded.

In order for Radio 4VEH to re-reach this area in Petite Anse quickly, they are hoping to have 100 percent funding by June 30. “Restore the Signal” will take a good amount of the summer to complete, so time is of the essence right now in Haiti.

This ministry of OMS has been helping Haitians hear the news, wonderful music and the message of the Gospel for 64 years. Now, they need our help. If you feel called to help Radio4VEH reach 100 percent of its funding, you can give online or with a check in the mail.

Journeying Outside Comfort Zones

April 10 2014

A couple of weeks ago, I sat with three ladies (and a little girl) enjoying the surroundings of Tropical Smoothie, a Caribbean-inspired sandwich & kind-of-healthy fruit smoothies cafe. And as each of them shared why they signed up to join me on my next Haiti mission trip (end of April), I remembered why I LOVE taking people to Haiti.

Because the guys at Men for Missions (the short-term mission teams ministry of One Mission Society) have got it spot on: these trips are part of a life-changing journey, and Storly and I love walking alongside people as their eyes are opened to 'the real world' (the poverty, the daily reality of how most of the world lives), as they allow God to take them way beyond their comfort zones, and as they see God in action in a different context, in ways that blow their minds and break their hearts for the world God loves and came to save.

My next trip at the end of April will be the 8th team from our church here (Community Church of Columbus) since we took up residence in this part of the world. And three of us from CCC (Keri, Karen and me) will be joined by Kelly from Columbus (who was part of last year's trip) and four people (Larry, Debbie, Michael and Amy) from Findlay E-Free church in northern Ohio (who partnered with us with their Christmas offering last year to give to Resounding Hope solar radios).

So, at Tropical Smoothie, I told a story that I want to share with you. Except you get all the background too...

In June 2011, our CCC team visited a small village called Kayemit (Ky-meet), named after a local fruit tree, known in English as Star Apple. I'd been hearing about this village from Medson (our evangelism/radio distribution leader) as a place in need of the Gospel. A pastor from the local town of Quartier-Morin had started to visit this village, saw people's needs there, and felt called by God to start a work there. Our team was happy to be a part.

So, to Kayemit we went. After Luke, Devin, Randy, Tim, and Ken helped fix a flat tire on the van.

We gathered under the shade of a huge tree with Pastor Deusma, Medson and evangelism team, and others from Pastor Deusma's church in Quartier-Morin. We prayed, got instructions on the day's activity (like 'don't randomly give the radios out on the street, only after conversations with people about the Gospel, preferably in their homes or yards', and 'each radio is for the whole family or household, unless you visit with a witch doctor or voodoo priest, then give them one for themselves'). And then we split up, two or three visiting team members, a translator, an evangelism worker and a local guide who knows the community and can direct the group to homes and people most in need of the Gospel.

I usually hover around trying to spend some time with each of the groups, taking pictures, observing, sometimes helping with translation and interpreting some of the cultural stuff that doesn't always get translated effectively. So I started with Ken and Kellie, good friends of ours who had taken a huge step outside their comfort zones to come to Haiti. And there were more steps of faith to come.

I wrote about this day in Men for MissionsActionmagazine, here is an excerpt:

Villagers Hear a New Voice

As we approach the first house, Pastor Joseph Deusma pulls me aside and whispers, “A witch doctor lives here.”

Though we couldn’t see the red and blue flags usually identifying where a witch doctor lives, there were other objects, including a bottle hanging from a tree (used in voodoo ceremonies).

So here we are, on the front lines of the spiritual battles that rage across the earth. This time, in Kayemit village in northern Haiti.

About 800 people call Kayemit home. But in the eyes of Emmanuel Félix (Medson), Radio 4VEH’s Extension Ministries Director, this is ‘virgin territory.’ With no real church presence in the community, the voice of influence belongs to the witchdoctor. Until today.

Visiting missionaries from Community Church of Columbus, Indiana, along with local evangelists first gather under a tree. Emmanuel explains the key to sharing the Gospel in communities where most identify themselves as Christian. ‘Ask about Jesus. What position does Jesus hold in your life?’

(What a great question as we talk with anyone. Not asking how religious you are, how much 'knowledge' you have of God, how often you go to church, how you label yourself, but where is Jesus in your life? Is He Lord?)

At the witch doctor’s house, he’s not home. But we speak with several members of his household, as well as another man visiting. We leave a solar radio for the household, and one for the witch doctor.

Next door, the witchdoctor’s niece combs through her daughter’s hair. When asked about her own faith, she replies she’s a good Catholic, and also dances at the voodoo ceremonies held regularly by her uncle. She wasn’t ready to accept Christ as her personal Savior.

The global prayer resource Operation World explains Haiti’s complex religious context this way: ‘The Roman Catholic Church’s role as the state church ended in 1987…Haitians overwhelmingly identify themselves as “Christian”…An estimated 75 percent of Christians are also actively involved in voodoo, a development of West African Spiritism and witchcraft.’

By the end of the outreach, 51 radios were given out after 70 people heard personal presentations of the Gospel. Three people prayed to receive Christ as their Savior, and 37 people refused Christ.

But now there’s a new voice of influence in Kayemit—Radio 4VEH, The Evangelistic Voice of Haiti—the voice that speaks about Jesus through all kinds of radio programs.

Pastor Deusma says, “Even though people here don’t have a church where they can worship God, they can now hear the Gospel. The radio receivers will help them to hear the Word of God. Listen, you can already hear people listening to the noon prayer program on their little radios!”

“I know it’s a seed that’s been planted today. And God will bring those seeds to fruition. He will produce the fruit. As we leave here, God will do the rest.”

Fast forward two years, to June 2013. We took the Columbus team back to Kayemit, wondering what had happened to those Gospel seeds that had been planted and watered every day through the little radios, and the pastoral care of Pastor Deusma and those working with him.

What a privilege to be standing where a new church has been planted―where the physical space, starting with a few sticks and plastic sheeting, is showing the village that there's a new body of Christ-followers in this place.

Back to the story I was telling at Tropical Smoothie. It was this scene above. One of the highlights of our whole summer in Haiti was this moment when the team prayed for this new church, this pastor ministering in this village, for the new believers here. And the person praying was Kellie, the one who was never comfortable praying out loud. And here she was, praying a prayer of blessing in front of team mates, villagers, friends, and strangers―praying a prayer to her heavenly Father on behalf of these brothers and sisters in Kayemit.

Being alongside people on their life-changing journeys is an absolute honor. What's your life-changing journey look like? And who are you walking alongside of on their stepping-out-in-faith, stretched-by-God journey way beyond their comfort zones?

Radio 4VEH Receives NRB Milestone Award

Praise the Lord with us for all He is doing in and through the ministry of Radio 4VEH in Haiti. We are excited to announce that Radio 4VEH, OMS' Christian radio station in Cap Haitien, Haiti, will receive another prestigious award this year.

The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Association announced that Radio 4VEH, The Evangelistic Voice of Haiti, will be honored with a Milestone Award at the annual NRB convention later this month.

The Milestone Awards are presented annually to ministries with more than 50 years of continuous ministry in Christian broadcasting. This year, Radio 4VEH is celebrating 64 years of serving God and the Haitian people through radio. Radio 4VEH is one of five ministries to receive a Milestone Award at a ceremony on February 25, 2014, at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

This is the second time that Radio 4VEH has been honored by the NRB. Last year, Radio 4VEH was named NRB International Radio Ministry 2013, for "excelling in radio or audio ministry, exercising integrity and faithfulness to the cause of Christ, while demonstrating unusual effectiveness in impacting the target culture with the Gospel."

OMS missionary and station manager, Rev. Storly Michel (a Haitian), will receive the award on behalf of Radio 4VEH and One Mission Society.
