Petite Anse update #2: Rebuilding the Wall
There’s been great progress this summer to rebuild the wall around the Petite Anse property (the AM radio towers and transmission site that sends the signal across northern Haiti and beyond).
- In June 2013, Ted Chandler (who served as Missionary Engineer at Radio 4VEH for several years) completed an on-site assessment for replacing the old 270 ft and 200 ft AM towers. He answered questions like: how to ‘drop’ the existing towers safely, how to transport donated replacement towers from the USA to Haiti, and erect them in place; and detailing the costs, logistics, people and equipment that will be needed to accomplish that huge task.
- Ted also did some urgent welding to repair the base of the towers
- We thank God for the funds given by listeners and supporters, and for the short-term missions teams from Northern Ireland, England, Indiana and Kentucky who came to Haiti through Men for Missions to serve alongside Haitian workers to sift sand, pour concrete and lay bricks to build 900 ft wall. There’s another 2000 ft of wall to be completed to secure the 9 hectare property.
Please pray for:
God’s help in completing the restoration of this site over the next 12-18 months, for the funds, skills and labor needed for:
- the construction of the wall. Another 2000 ft of wall needs to be repaired or rebuilt to securely enclose the property.
- the replacement of the AM towers and tuning system, to enable the signal to go out to the widest possible listening area to reach people for Christ.
