Overcoming Spiritual Darkness

Overcoming Spiritual Darkness

“The Proclaimers were an incredible blessing to people in the mountain villages of Haiti! Pastor David had selected a few men from his ministry to receive them. It was such a blessing to see the awe and joy on their faces as they heard the Word in their own language, Haitian Creole.

My favorite story was about Mathieu, a 16-year-old boy who had been caring for his mother and 4 siblings since his father (a voodoo priest) had passed away. The family was so poor that they did not eat every day, and Mathieu was unable to attend school because he spent his days trying to provide for his family.

"Mathieu . . . recited whole chapters of the Bible."

Mathieu often shadowed Pastor David’s daily ministry and soon accepted the Lord as his Savior. Learning of their situation, a Christian ministry provided the family with food and purchased pigs for them to raise and sell in the market. As a result, Mathieu was able to begin school again.

When we turned on the Proclaimer, Mathieu said every word with it – not repeating the words, but preaching it word-for-word! The photo [above] doesn’t do it justice. As he and his friends listened, Mathieu picked up the Proclaimer, carried it on his shoulder like a boom-box, turned up the volume, and recited whole chapters of the Bible. It was incredible!

Thank you for sharing these Proclaimers with the people in this very poor, very remote, ‘mountain-beyond-the-mountain’ area that is overcoming the spiritual darkness of voodoo with the hope found in Christ. What a wonderful ministry!”


This testimony was received from a participant in our Every Church Every Village program.

“In my village, more than 80% adhere to the belief system that I was born into and had practiced until I got married. My entire neighborhood belongs to this religion. Before I became a Christian, I had been an epileptic since childhood. One day, I went to listen to the New Testament on a Proclaimer out of curiosity and heard that . . ."
