OVERLAND PARK, Kan.— The president and vice president of the International Mission Board will host a special one-hour radio program highlighting the work of more than 5,500 IMB missionaries around the world. The program will air in 13 states through the Bott Radio Network on Dec. 16.

President Jerry Rankin and Senior Vice President Avery Willis recorded 8,369 new churches and 9,862 new outreach points since 2002. IMB workers also recorded 421,436 baptisms during the year. Workers in one country recently reported that as many as 900,000 people have decided to follow Jesus in the past three years. In just one district of that country, researchers now count more than 1,000 congregations where five years ago only a handful existed.

Harold Hendrick, a Bott radio host in St. Louis and a member of First Baptist Church in Ferguson, Mo., will conduct the interview.
