Witch doctor tunes in for sports…and hears the Gospel !

Do you follow your favourite sports on TV, online, or on your phone? Earlier this year, God used the daily sports programme on Radio 4VEH to draw a young man, a well-known witch doctor, to Christ. This is your faithful support in action!
“Pierre persecuted the Gospel, and us too,” Pastor Joseph, an evangelism partner, told us. “He set up his voodoo altar right across from our church. We prayed for him. In the end, he went away—but we kept praying. When he came back, I gave him a 4VEH solar radio.” [Pastor Joseph had a few solar radios left after a recent outreach in Haiti as part of our Resounding Hope initiative.]
“Pierre only listened to the sports programme, because he loves football (soccer),” said Pastor Joseph. “But, yesterday, after listening to the soccer results as usual, he forgot to turn off his radio. What he heard next was the Gospel message.
As soon as the programme ended, Pierre called me, wanting to become a Christian. So, I went to his house, talked him through the way of salvation, and we burned all his voodoo things. And this witch doctor came to Christ!”
Like Saul, the persecutor of Christians who met Jesus and became the great missionary Paul, this former witch doctor, Pierre, is now passionately urging others to choose Christ. So many people across Haiti need to hear his story. But we need your help!
Help share Pierre’s story with others in need of Christ
Your faithful prayers and financial support of 4VEH are vital as we work together in the Lord’s work to reach, teach, and serve Haitians like Pierre through media—and as we share stories like his on the air. Pierre will soon give his testimony on our Let the Rocks Cry Out weekly programme, to encourage others, including witch doctors, to come to Christ.
You see, witch doctors are very influential—giving advice or ‘cures’ for problems like sickness, money, and relationships. So when a witch doctor turns to Jesus, he often influences many people for the Lord as they see his life transformed. I can’t wait to see how the Lord will use Pierre for His Kingdom!
Your support transforms listeners—and their communities.
“My wife and my children are now in Christ too,” said Pierre. “A lot of people I used to serve as a witch doctor have seen the difference in my life now and have come to Christ themselves. My advice to others? Come to Jesus; He is the only way!”
Pierre’s story is not unique. As we celebrate 4VEH’s 65th anniversary this month, we are reminded of comments from many unchurched people who tuned in for sports, farming advice, news, music, for help with their problems—and what they heard on 4VEH drew them, sometimes straightaway, often over time, to the Savior.
Your donation to Radio 4VEH will provide essential resources to produce and broadcast radio programmes that transform lives, like Pierre’s—for today and for eternity. Thank you so much!
