“A lot of people I used to serve as a witch doctor have seen the difference in my life now and have come to Christ themselves.”
God used the daily sports program on Radio 4VEH to draw a well-known witch doctor to Christ.
“Charles persecuted the Gospel and us too,” Pastor Joseph, an evangelism partner, told us. “He set up his Voodoo altar right across from our church. We prayed for him. “In the end, he went away, but we kept praying. When he came back, I gave him a 4VEH solar radio.
“Charles only listened to the sports program, because he loves soccer,” said Pastor Joseph. “But, yesterday, after listening to the soccer results as usual, he forgot to turn off his radio. What he heard next was the Gospel message.
“As soon as the program ended, Charles called me, wanting to become a Christian. So, I went to his house, talked him through the way of salvation, and we burned all his Voodoo things. And this witch doctor came to Christ!”
Transforming listeners and their communities
Like Saul, the persecutor of Christians who met Jesus and became the great missionary Paul, this former witch doctor Charles is now urging others to choose Christ.
“My wife and my children are now in Christ too,” said Charles. “A lot of people I used to serve as a witch doctor have seen the difference in my life now and have come to Christ themselves.”
In Haiti, witch doctors can be very influential—giving advice or “cures” for problems like sickness, money and relationships. So, when a witch doctor turns to Jesus, he often influences many people for the Lord as they see his life transformed. Surely the Lord will use Charles for his kingdom!
Charles will soon give his testimony on 4VEH’s Let the Rocks Cry Out weekly radio program, to encourage others – including witch doctors – to come to Christ.
“My advice to others? Come to Jesus; he is the only way!”
