Thank you for your generosity in 2017! More people gave regular monthly gifts to SonSet Solutions last year than ever before. You also gave generously to our year-end campaign, many giving early in response to our matching gift opportunities. As a result, the Lord blessed us richly in 2017 and we ended the year on solid financial ground. As we look forward to the coming year, we are excited to see what the Lord will do through SonSet Solutions and our ministry partners. Thank you for your partnership in the gospel!
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.
Cody and Emily Hall will be making an overseas trip to Kenya with a two-fold purpose. First, to install two distinctly different water monitors designed for two different pumps: a solar-powered pump that’s part of a larger water storage and delivery system for a children’s school, and an India Mark II hand pump (the world’s most common water pump) that serves the local community. Second, they will train local Kenyans how to install the water monitors themselves.
These are both applications of SonSet Solutions’ remote monitoring system called SonSetLink™. The solar-powered pump monitor adds a new method of water-level sensing for storage tanks (similar to the level sensor pictured that Cody designed and built for Ecuador) which is critical in balancing water usage with availability, while the India Mark II pump monitor can now sense the presence of water within the pump.
The most challenging aspects of both redesigns are accommodating additional sensor needs, determining what’s easiest to manufacture, maintaining functionality, and keeping overall costs as low as possible.
The team is currently working on a customized SonSetLink™ water monitor for partner ministry Design Outreach’s LifePump™. Looking ahead, challenges include production streamlining and additional testing. Praise the Lord that more than 300 water monitors have been shipped in the last three to four years. We are hoping to ship many more, ensuring that the water continues flowing in critical regions all over the world.
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.
