SEND International is an interdenominational Christian mission agency. Known as Far Eastern Gospel Crusade (FEGC) until 1981,[1] SEND International was founded in 1947 by a group of World War II veterans[2] via the merger of G.I. Gospel Hour[3] in the Philippines and Japan and the Far Eastern Bible Institute.[4]
