International televangelist Bro. Eli Soriano is actively preaching the gospel through the use of modern technology. In 2009, TV Verdade was established as a digital satellite TV channel. It humbly started with small garage transformed into a makeshift studio. Today, the station is being carried 24/7 by StarOne C2 and SES-6 satellites in South America and Latin America.
