"Go south with radio," God said to Clarence Wesley Jones. So C. W. went south--to Ecuador. Come up to this mountain," God said. Clarence Jones ascended the mountain and perched his tiny radio operation in Quito, the city at the "top of the world." Lord, C. W. prayed then, give me this mountain. And so it was that in 1931, in a humble sheepshed rigged with a 250-watt transmitter and antenna wire, a Christmas program was broadcast to a total of just thirteen receiving sets, and HCJB was born. It was the advent of missionary radio. Come Up to This Mountain is the inspiring story of HCJB and the pioneering missionary spirit of C. W. Jones. A man of dreams, relentless energy, and immense practicality, C. W. Jones took that "soft whisper of the Andes" and, through hardship and tragedy, built it into a massive 500,000-watt radio center, a "mighty shout echoing around the globe." Give me this mountain, said C. W. Jones. And God gave him the world.
