A dramatic view of the crowd assembled in the Luneta, at the First Philippines International Fair in 1953. The famed Rizal monument can be made out at the base of the tall flagpole, which is in alignment with the Fair’s arch symbol. DZAS maintained a broadcasting faclity in booths 28/30, and distributed thousands of pieces of literature, which generated 1000 requests for Bible correspondence courses in the first two weeks. Details in the May 1953 Broadcaster . It is not known how this elevated view was obtained.

The newly completed transmitter building, with DZAS tower and shortwave antennas. Supervision of the construction was done by Ray Meeks, a volunteer from the U.S. The corrugated roofing material could not be obtained in Manila in the curved shape needed for this building; Ray invented a hand-operated crimping device to form the pieces from straight stock. Unlike many original CRCM structures, this one was still standing in 2005. See also #310.

The "crimping" tool invented by FEBC to bend flat corrugated metal roofing material into the large-scale curve necessary to fit the new transmitter building. FEBC produced many innovations in the early days in order to meet various needs, simply because many electronic and construction materials were not available in the years following the war. Ray Meeks, a volunteer from the U.S. who oversaw this project, is seen with hand on the hood of the jeep. See also #310, 311, 323.

Each year at Easter time, at a location to the north of Manila, flagelantes attempt to atone for their sins (or repay God for an unusual stroke of luck), by whipping themselves bloody in a public display of devotion. Hundred of onlookers gather to watch the awful event. Some "penitents" are even crucified. The pageant was begun in the 16th century when Spain occupied the Philippines with its cruel form of Roman Catholicism, and the "pageant" continues into the 21st century. The photographs in this collection were taken from 1948 onward, by a variety of FEBC missionary photographers who could hardly believe their eyes, and who were eager to share the images with supporters back home as a demonstration of why the message of God's love needed to come to Asia.
