Mission Presbyterian Support

Missionaries

We support our missionaries in the Congo, Larry and Inge Sthreshley. Both Larry and Inge were born in the Belgian Congo. Inge’s parents were Methodist missionaries and Larry’s were Presbyterian missionaries. They have two children, both of whom were born in the Congo. One of the current projects is Inge’s garden program where vegetable gardens have been started in some of the unpaved slums of Kinshasa (the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo). These garden projects help alleviate the hunger problem, particularly with a money shortage and the logistics of getting the produce to the city. Larry works with partner churches and organizations to help them develop their capacity and technical approach to do health ministry in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Sudan. This has enabled the partners to run large internationally funded health programs that greatly impacted health in these countries. Larry says his goal is to help the church “effectively demonstrate the love of Christ through health ministry”.
