Galcom Establishes New Radio Ministry Partnership in Haiti

Radio Haiti 102.3Galcom International recently formed a new ministry partnership with Shawn Rineholt and Ears To Hear (ETH) to help heal the Caribbean nation of Haiti, which was devastated nearly four years ago by a horrific 7.0 magnitude earthquake.

Galcom assisted ETH in repairing Radio 102.3 FM, “The Voice Of Salvation,” a Christian radio station located in St. Marc that was knocked off the air by the 2010 earthquake.

“Our engineer, David Creel, provided key technical advice, and a new antenna and transmitter were installed,” reported Galcom Executive Director Tom Blackstone.

According to Galcom, the upgrades were important because the St. Marc listening area swelled to more than 200,000 as people migrated there to get away from the quake-ravaged region near Port-au-Prince.

In addition, Galcom sent Ears To Hear 1,000 solar-powered, fix-tuned radios for their radio outreach to the St. Marc area. Some of those radios were given for the prisoners at St. Marc prison.

“Even those who are in physical bondage are able to hear the Good News of the Gospel,” shared Blackstone. “God is truly using Christian radio to impact lives, turning Satan’s darkness into the glorious light of Jesus in Haiti.”

As more than 150,000 Galcom ImpaX audio Bible-capable radios are still needed in Haiti, Galcom is working to acquire additional support to advance this new radio outreach in Haiti.

Galcom’s mission is to multiply missionary impact through audio technology, and its strategy is to provide durable technical equipment for communicating the Gospel worldwide.
