Three Generations

Pura Vida with Lorena Escobar

Radio HCJB

“My mother told me they heard the news of the second world war because of HCJB.  My grandfather listened every day.  We love HCJB!”

HCJB are the call letters of radio station HCJB, a ministry of HCJB Global.  As the first Christian missionary radio station in the world, it has been broadcasting since 1931.

The comments in the first paragraph came via a friend at our church from her Ecuadorean daughter-in-law in Quito, Ecuador.  Before our friend had heard of our missionary assignment, her daughter-in-law had told her of HCJB and how she listens and enjoys it.  She’s the third generation in her family to listen to HCJB!

Recently at church we met an immigrant from Ecuador who was born in HCJB Global’s Quito hospital.  She was excited when she heard of our plans:  “My father became a follower of Christ through HCJB.  How wonderful that you are going to help the Ecuadorean people!”

HCJB Global is much bigger now than the small radio station started in Quito in 1931.  Health care joined their media activities, and their ministries expanded around the world.  Yet to the people of Ecuador, they are still “Vozandes” (The Voice of the Andes) and held in great favor.

And we are excited to help be the voice and hands of Jesus–via accounting and clerical work–to a third (and fourth) generation of Ecuadoreans.
