“We are grateful that you are continually here with us,” writes a FEBA Cambodia listener. Being Christian in Cambodia can be a lonely thing. When Christianity arrived in the country in 1923, its message was unwelcome. Its followers suffered brutal persecution during Pol Pot’s regime, which destroyed some 90% of the Christian population, and even today, less than 3% of Cambodians are professing Christians.

Today, Cambodia recognises Buddhism as the official religion. The religion is closely intertwined with Cambodian culture and leaves little opportunity for people to learn about Christ.

FEBA began broadcasting into Cambodia via shortwave in 1953. In 1995, they were allowed to establish their first station inside the country. Today, FEBA Cambodia has a lively ministry, with radio broadcasts, family seminars, and a Bible school. Yet there remains a need to connect with the younger generation.

Enter FEBA Cambodia’s new mobile studio van, taking the Good News to the Cambodian youth. The first-of-its-kind mobile studio will visit universities, schools, and malls, as well as towns and villages where young people may be more isolated than those in urban areas. The FEBA Cambodia team will chat with young people about topics they find interesting and relevant and share a biblical perspective on them. Programs will stream on popular internet platforms.

“We know that Jesus has the wisdom and love they are searching for,” says FEBA Cambodia’s director. “With the mobile studio, we can talk with them, and help them on their journey of discovery with God.”
