After nearly two years of making the proper connections in the cable company business, the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Haiti recently launched Hope Channel Inter-America in an effort to spread the gospel message to the millions of people on the island. Local church leaders consider it a true blessing and milestone to have been able to launch the television channel through two special live church services held on Nov. 10, 2018, from Port-au-Prince.
“This has been several years in the making, but we praise God that we can fulfill the mission of the church by sharing the gospel of salvation through television,” said Pierre Caporal, president of the church in Haiti, as he spoke to thousands of members at Adventist Temple No. 1 morning service.
Hope Channel Inter-America’s Espérance TV, which is based in Martinique, now runs 24/7 programming in French by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the French Antilles Guiana Union. Esperance TV carried the live service through its link shared with Tele Haiti—one of the oldest and most established cable companies in Haiti covering the two largest cities on the island, Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haitien.
