In 1942, the Union Rescue Mission of Los Angeles established a Canteen called "The Victory Service Club," located on S. Main Street. It was here that Robert Bowman assisted in services for the benefit of WW2 off-duty military personnel, and interacted with other Christian leaders, prior to the founding of FEBC. At the time, "Bob" Bowman was a well-known singer on the Haven of Rest radio broadcast. The image is the face of a post card that was made available to soldiers and sailors to write home.

This remarkable photo, undoubtedly taken in the early to mid 1940's, was located by FEBC personnel in Shanghai, in November of 2006. It shows the door to the studio in which broadcasting was already being produced by local Christians, when John Broger made his contacts in that city in 1946. The call sign of the station being used (XMGC) appears over the doorway, and can also be seen in in photo #45. This photo was shown to FEBC by the son of Rev. Charles Chi (see #9), who was pastor of Grace Baptist Church at that time. The source of the photo appears in #1224. A broader view of this side of the building in 1946, is found in image #79.

A 1946 FEBC "Basic Brochure". This side of the publication contains an endorsement from "First Mate Bob" of the Haven of Rest radio program.   Dr. Robert H. Bowman, one of the founders of FEBC, was a member of the original Haven of Rest quartet, a broadcast heard nationally in the U.S. by network from about 1934. The generosity of Haven of Rest to provide this endorsement to be mailed to its own mailing list was, and still is, unparalleled. The opposite side of this document is in the Photo Archive as #62.

"Gospel and Song" was a Christian radio program produced at the Calvary Assembly church in Inglewoood, California. As can be noted in the text, the program had started in 1933-34, under the leadership of Robert Bowman, and William J. Roberts, pastor of the church. Both of these men, were, of course two of the three original members of the FEBC Founding Executive Committee. It was from this radio effort and the Haven of Rest radio program [See #63] that Dr. Bowman had gathered his radio experience and his belief in its power to reach people. It was also the principle means by which people across American learned about the new radio venture called Far East Broadcasting Company. (Note: Ralph Carmichael, the well-known composer/conductor eventually took over the musical responsibilities for this program.
