Tim and Kathy Rice are from St. Louis, Missouri, where Tim 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.
Their heart for Congo started through the ministry of New City Fellowship in St. Louis to the many Congolese who are members. God also inspired their passion for Congo through an acquaintance with the late Dr. Dan Fountain and many other International Ministries missionaries in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Both Tim and Kathy have served on many short-term missions trips to Vanga Evangelical Hospital which strengthened their love for the people and opened their eyes to how God wanted to use their experience and gifting to show His love in Vanga.
