1946   Robert and Eleanor Bowman, and John and Dorothy Broger pose beside their vehicle while on a "deputation" tour to raise funds for the new FEBC endeavor. In the first days of FEBC, funds had to be raised on the basis of their shared vision, since no actual radio stations or broadcasting yet existed. Churches eagerly made appointments to hear the FEBC story because of the fame of Robert Bowman as a singer and speaker on the Haven of Rest radio program, and because of a surge of interest in missionary evangelism following World War 2. See #1932 for a newspaper clipping advertising their appearance in a church in Modesto (California), probably on this same 1946 trip.
