FEBC’s Impact

Established -1973 – FEB Myanmar National Operations began in May 1973 under the ministry “Witnessing for Christ”(W.F.C.) Myanmar, an inter-denominational ministry, founded by Rev. Dr. Tin Maung Tun (Ronnie).

The partnership between FEBC Philippines and W.F.C. first began as a way to help Myanmar listeners who responded to a free offer of a calendar and program schedule by FEBC. They could not be delivered due to a Burmese postal policy. Hence, Rev. Leon Gold, then Director of South East Asia FEBC personally requested Ronnie to explain why they could not meet the commitment, which he did. He also delivered Gospel tracts to listeners.
