Thanks for your interest in the work in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
We are medical missionaries Dr. Tim Rice and Kathy Rice RN. We are missionaries of New City Fellowship Church in St. Louis, a member of the Presbyterian Church in America. We are working in association with International Ministries and Communauté Baptiste du Congo Ouest (C.B.CO) to serve as medical missionaries at the Vanga Evangelical Hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). We are from St. Louis, Missouri, where Tim is continues to maintain his position as Associate Professor on the faculty of the School of Medicine at Saint Louis University and the Department of Pediatrics and Department of Internal Medicine.
Our heart for Congo started through the ministry of our church, New City Fellowship. Our church in St. Louis had many Congolese members who were living in St. Louis. God also inspired our passion for Congo through our acquaintance with the late Dr. Dan Fountain and many other International Ministries missionaries here in the DRC. Both of us served on many short-term missions trips to Vanga Evangelical Hospital which strengthened our love for the people and opened our eyes to how God wanted to use our experience and gifting to show His love here in Vanga.
We studied French in France for 10 months and then arrived July 20, 2015 in Vanga. We are so thankful for the wonderful team of supporters who have encouraged us and made it possible for us to work here.
Our 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) Our desire is to facilitate worldwide partnerships, enabling health professionals to participate in mutual exchange of expertise at the Vanga Evangelical Hospital and elsewhere in the DRC.
