Far East Broadcasting (FEBC) Mongolia is establishing 12 new radio stations across Mongolia with the help of Moody Radio listeners. Three of the 12 stations were recently completed. In the Western part of the country, Tsetserleg city became the first to go on the air on May 24th. Two more stations in the cities of Ulyastai, and Ulaangom were launched shortly thereafter in this initial setup phase.
FEBC Mongolia’s national director Boldsaikhan Oyunchimeg (Bogi) shared how impactful the stations would be, saying: “It is not a mere strategic plan, but a reflection of God’s heart in us to reach more Mongolians with the Gospel. Establishing these local Gospel stations in [unreached areas] will push us closer to finishing the task of reaching all of Mongolia. We are immensely grateful for Moody radio listeners for allowing more people to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ! It truly is a tangible and very special gift from one listener (Moody) to another (FEBC Mongolia).”
FEBC Mongolia currently broadcasts the Gospel on 15 local FM stations throughout Mongolia. This includes the latest 3 stations that were added by Moody listeners. The goal is to continue to set up and launch the final 9 stations, so that the entire country can be within reach of FEBC Gospel broadcasts.
