We've searched in our vaults and found a wonderful little booklet issued by HCJB 50 years ago when they celebrated their 25th anniversary.

Throughout 2006, we'll bring you these pages from the past, as our salute to HCJB.

This month, the scriptural foundations for HCJB, Silver Anniversay operations, and photos from 1931 and 1956.
