This Ilongot mother is a member of a village of headhunters whose village has become predominantly Christian through the efforts of New Tribes Missions. A PM radio was placed here (See #97) to help the new Christians grow in faith. A note accompanying this photograph stated that this mother's children (who are afraid of the camerman) will not continue in the practice of headhunting since they are being raised in the ways of the Lord. Search word: Ilongot.

The demand for "PM" radios became so great that extra funds were raised to purchase radios made outside the FEBC shop. These Phillips radios conformed to FEBC's specifications; the dial shows narrow tuneability to a variety of FEBC-Philippines frequencies, including "tropical band" short wave for areas outside the reach of DZAS. Also note the logo and motto for FEBC-Philippines ("The Call of the Orient"), and "DZAS PM Club".

A rural church. Beside the PM radio is a clock, to help remind people who otherwise pay no attention to time, the moment to tune in to the program that will help them grow in faith. One story, taken from Mindoro Island is that one congregation who had become accustomed to having the radio lead their services, began all other services with the announcement, "This is the Far East Broadcasting Company. The time is seven P.M."

A 750-foot well had to be dug to provide water. The water was pure, and was made available to the local community. In the 1990's the well began to run dry because of the demand on the water table, caused by Manila's urban encroachment, and was drilled to over 1000 feet where it again was tested to be absolutely pure!

Pantry table legs were set in coffee cans filled with kerosene in an attempt to prevent ants from coming aboard. However, the ants soon learned to cross the moats by laying down a pontoon bridge of their dead fellow ants. See also #1497.

One of the wonderful things about FEBC's collection of historic photographs is the recording of national life as it was in the Philippines, especially in barrios and homes where FEBC was distributing radios and doing "follow up." This scene shows a PM hung from the cieling of a barber shop, traditional community gathering spots even as they are today in the 21st century.
