About the Book

This book traces the major events in the history of Mennonite Brethren mission work in the African country of Zaire (now called Democratic Republic of Congo). Mennonite Brethren immigrants to North America from Russia brought with them a vision for Christian mission outreach, something that characterized the Mennonite renewal movement from its birth in 1860. The story of North American MB missionary work in Zaire is only a small part of the broad sweep of the 20th-century mission movement. This book tells the story of missionary specialists who brought healing, education, and literature to the aid of the emerging church, helping it prepare for survival during the difficult days of civil war and into the future as an independent church in an independent country. The methods used and the polices made reflect the mission thinking current in that day.
