Radio Planting in West Africa
Helping partners begin and maintain Christian radio stations around the world is at the core of our ministry. We call this Radio Planting. But what does that really look like? Bob and Kevin take you inside the radio planting work of SonSet Solutions in this short video.
In April 2018, SonSet Solutions’ missionaries Alan Good and Ted Miller along with Paul Shingledecker, from World Gospel Mission, visited Radio Lumiѐre in Haiti to continue working on upgrades for the station’s studio equipment. Previously, in 2016, SonSet Solutions’ engineers and programmers created and installed a customized software package called AudioGuardian. This software is used to store Radio Lumiѐre’s music and program content. Through the years, our engineers have been working to complete AudioGuardian and train the station’s staff members on its operation.
Our hard-working missions team was able to introduce new features to the AudioGuardian system. They also worked on automation system installation, FM transmitter repairs, song classification, generator repairs and many additional projects that needed their attention. These three men faced time constraints, technical difficulties, information barriers and sickness as they struggled to meet the demands of their work. Good says the hardest part, for him, was “trying to integrate the different software programs to work together.” After three weeks, they left Haiti but still continue to progress in their efforts to help Radio Lumiѐre complete the equipment upgrades. As they near the project’s end, we pray for success in equipping Radio Lumiѐre in the best way possible.
the HCJB Global Technology Center
After 28 years of effective worldwide ministry under the names of HCJB Global Technology Center and HCJB World Radio Engineering Center, our team of missions-minded technologists is now SonSet Solutions (find out why), an independent ministry to help spread the gospel through technology. Our workers are mostly engineers and technicians, and over the years we have developed great expertise in listening to our partners tell of their ministry dreams and needs.
