Healing from a death-knell diagnosis. Prayer for the soul of a nation. These are big things that men and women in Haiti have prayed for through the testimony of Radio Lumière. Here’s a recent update from Varnel Jeune, the general director.
“As I write these lines, I have with me here in my office brother Léon DUNARD, age 60, who came to tell of an unforgettable experience he had with Radio Lumière. It was 1995. He was really not feeling well and went to the doctor. The diagnosis was crystal clear and fatal: “Your heart is finished. You are going to die this afternoon or during the night.” It was terrible news and our brother was devastated. He went home and lay down quietly awaiting his death. As he was a very faithful listener to Radio Lumière, he turned on his radio, as he said it, for the last time. To his astonishment, the preacher was meditating on Psalm 118:17 “I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the LORD has done.” That was the miracle, the message of healing that God had sent directly to him by way of Radio Lumière. This year marks 20 years since “Jesus and Radio Lumière raised me from the dead and this is my special witness every day.” With Jesus, Radio Lumière can undo a diagnosis!
Tuesday, July 7, 2015, with the help of some brothers and sisters, Radio Lumière organized an evening of special prayer for the Haitian nation in the Champ de Mars Park near the National Palace. Several hundred brothers and sisters were there to implore the grace of God on this little country facing all sorts of problems and for so many years. Thousands of others participated by way of Radio Lumière and the National Television coverage. The problem is things just seem to be getting worse and worse. It was a special evening. The Champ de Mars trembled under the power of the prayers of the hundreds of participants. Since then the congratulatory and encouraging calls and emails have come from everywhere, in Haiti and from the Haitian diaspora (Haitians in other countries). They would like Radio Lumière to take the leadership of a movement of prayer until God intervenes in one way or another. Pray that God will provide the means in order for Radio Lumière to hold high this prayer torch.
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
