XLAW, in Nanking. A number of the Chinese Evangelicals are assisting in this broadcast. Mr. David Adeney and the Inter Varsity Fellowship are assisting in the musical part of the broadcast. The first program was February 9, 1947.

On May 4th, Pastor Charles Chi arrived in San Francisco by Pan-American Clipper on his way to attend the Southern Baptist Convention at St. Louis, and then to continue as a delegate to the world convention in Copenhagen. We met Pastor Chi as he arrived in San Francisco and had a very pleasant period of fellowship with him the day of his arrival.XLAW, in Nanking.

REGIONAL DIRECTOR

Mr. Floyd Hitchcock of Springfield, Missouri, editor of the "Gospel Messenger" and director of the "Faith of our Fathers" Broadcasts has been appointed as Regional Director representing the FEBC in the middle west states. Mr. Hitchcock was a missionary in Japan for seven years under the Oriental Missionary Society, and has been largely instrumental in fostering FEBC Interest in the middle west by means of his broadcast and publication.

FEBC TIME TABLE

It is expected that the two transmitters will be completed sometime in the fall of 1947 and possibly installed in the Philippines during the early part of the year of 1948. This time table may be expected if progress is not hindered in any way. The prime factors necessary to the keeping of this schedule involve the obtaining of building materials in the Philippines in order that construction and housing may continue; also that the necessary equipment for the building of the transmitters and the various associated studio equipment may be available. The steel for constructing the antenna towers must be purchased within the next several months in order that they may be sent on before hand to Manila and erected.

Even though we will face many problems in procurement of-materials, we will face the financial need in our budget for these items of approximately $60,000.00 from this time to the said of the year. We have perfect confidence that God will supply the need as it is His will for the work to proceed, We are simply endeavoring to be as faithful in stewardship energy, and time as it is possible in order that nothing shall hinder in the carrying out of this project. We trust that you will continue to pray with us that the forward advance shall continue in order that the many millions who perhaps will never be reached otherwise might know of this glorious gospel of salvation. We trust that this report is such that you may be able to pray intelligently and represent our needs before the throne of grace in your devotions. [Continued in 1230]
