6,000 Plus Celebrate HCJB Global Anniversary

From quiet counsel with pastors in a prayer room to clowning around not far away, the staff of Radio Station HCJB in Quito, Ecuador offered visitors a three-day open house known as Mision Compartida. As missionary Américo Saavedra ambled around the station’s campus, mingling with the crowds, he snapped photos of the fun and frolic.

Misión Compartida is a radio sharathon in which donated items include chickens, goats and guinea pigs, as well as cash donations.

A gallery of memorabalia from HCJB Global's history adorns the walls of the Larson Conference Center. Misión Compartida on Dec. 9-11 was one way that HCJB Global celebrated the 80th anniversary of its founding in 1931.
