    After a recent Newsletter several people asked questions about donating to the work. Here are some answers to the questions posed.

Question 1.  How do I give money for a specific project in Vanga like Air Conditioning the Operating Room, surgical care of women, nursing school classrooms or Bicycles to transport local pastors.

Answer:  Add a small note in the memo line of your check.  For example funds donated by check with a Memo: Congo-Rice-A/C would be designated to help pay for the Air Conditioning of the Operating Room here in Vanga.

Question 2. Do donations go to a general account or do the funds given by check or through the PayPal link go directly to support the work here in Vanga?

Answer: The funds donated by check with a Memo: Congo-Rice or through the PayPal link above are designated to support the work here in compliance with IRS requirements.

Question 3. Can I designate funds only to be used to expand the nursing school or provide medical care for the poor there in Vanga?

Answer: Yes. In your check include on the Memo line the following: ISTM Nursing School Construction or Congo-Rice Medical Care. Then the staff will be sure these funds are directed specifically as you request. For PayPal donations you can email Lisa St. Pierre and specify how to use your donations.

Question 4. Can I give through International Ministries?

Answer: Yes. As an appointed Associate Missionary with IM, Funds can be given through IM.  Follow this link to the main IM donor page. Look in the drop down list for Kathy and Tim Rice and specify the amount you would like to give.


To support C-sections and surgical care of women through International Ministries click on this link to take you to the donation page that describes the surgical care of women fund.  It takes two clicks to reach the actual giving page.

  1. What wonderful work you are doing. It’s an honor to contribute. You might be interested in the November 9 issue of The New Yorker. I have no idea of whether that is accessible to you, but I know you’d all enjoy an article on page 36 titled “Handel in Kinshasa”. It’s about the Kimbanguist Symphony Orchestra in Kinshasa, of all places. Fascinating in terms of what they have accomplished from virtually nothing.

  2. Hello Tim
    This is Fredy Griffith, friend of Linda. We have received your newsletters and are happy to see all the work you do there in Congo. We would have liked to donate ONLINE to your effort but the Donate Paypall Button takes us to the New City Church and there is no line for your work in Congo. We would like to donate to YOU not to the church (even if the work there is good too:-).
    What can we do? I suppose we could send a check to the church with your name. I thought I’d let you know in case other people get in that situation and also don’t donate because they can’t find a way to donate online and be sure it goes to you – not the church.

  3. Thanks for the great work that you are doing in the Congo. Your newsletter is a great way to let us know what is going on month to month. Our prayers are with you.

  4. First of all: What a wonderful job the Rice Family is doing in Africa! Thank you for your e-mails with information, they help me a lot to know what is happening there.
    I will definitely send a contribution to the STL mail address you provided.
