Nashville, TN – Radio 4VEH, The Evangelistic Voice of Haiti, will receive the prestigious NRB Milestone Award during the Awards Dinner on Tuesday, February 25, at the NRB 2014 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, TN.
The NRB Milestone Award is presented each year at the annual NRB Convention to pioneers in Christian communications who have demonstrated exemplary service in the industry for five decades or longer.
“Since 1950, Radio 4VEH has had an influential presence over the airwaves in Haiti sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” noted NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson. “I commend this wonderful ministry for their endurance and for their dedication to our Lord and Savior.”
Radio 4VEH transmitted its first radio program on June 2, 1950, after missionary Brother G.T. Bustin was obedient to God’s call to begin a radio station and called it "La Voix Evangélique d’Haïti" – 4VEH (The Evangelistic Voice of Haiti). Since then, Radio 4VEH has become a lifeline for listeners in urban and rural areas, serving as a trusted source of daily inspiration from God’s Word, with worship, prayer and praise, news, community messages and announcements, health, farming and educational lessons, and more. Since 1996, they have been giving out solar-powered radios as part of face-to-face evangelism and outreach.
