Our Church's Mission

Mission Nugget - Mission Around the World – Vanga Hospital, Congo

Medical Missionaries Dr. Tim Rice and Kathy Rice RN, have been jointly appointed by both International Ministries and New City Fellowship in St. Louis to serve as medical missionaries at the Vanga Evangelical Hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). They are from Saint Louis, Missouri, where Tim is on the faculty of the School of Medicine at Saint Louis University. They became involved in the DRC through the ministry of New City Fellowship and also through their acquaintance with the late Dr. Dan Fountain and many other International Ministries missionaries in the DRC. They have already served short-term at Vanga Evangelical Hospital and are now learning French so they can serve long-term contributing to the training of nursing and medical students for Christ-centered, whole person care. Their Vision: To train the next generation of Congolese doctors and nurses in Christ-centered, whole-person care, empowering them to use the limited resources available to restore life and health across the Democratic Republic of the Congo. (DRC) Their desire is to facilitate worldwide partnerships, enabling health professionals to participate in mutual exchange of expertise at the Vanga Evangelical Hospital and elsewhere.

Mission Budget Contributions
For June 14th and 21st, totaled $433.40. At this point, we can pay our $900 United Mission contribution and $100 for the Karen in Utica. We also received an additional $634 for One Great Hour of Sharing, bringing the total to $976. Remember our goal is $1000 in thanksgiving for their help to us last year during the flooding. Thank you for your generosity.
