FEBC in Cambodia
In 1957, years before the word ‘genocide’ was associated with Cambodia, FEBC began broadcasting the Gospel into the country of Cambodia from its shortwave station in the Philippines. Broadcasts continued into Cambodia as the turbulence of the Vietnam War spilled across its borders, ravaging its land and people. Meanwhile, Samoeun Chan Intal, born and raised in Cambodia, joined FEBC Philippines in 1976, where she was being prepared by God to begin a radio ministry inside Cambodia. In 1993, she returned to Cambodia with her Filipino husband Robledo and their three sons. There they trained Khmer people to produce radio programs. In 1993, the government allowed national programmers to establish FEBCambodia’s first office and studio in the capital of Phnom Penh.
