Medical Missionary


In the Central Congo Episcopal Area, physician Pierre Manya examines two babies resting beneath bed netting to deter mosquitoes. A gynecologist and surgeon, he also has been a United Methodist missionary since 1984. He and his wife, Pauline, a nurse, recently visited United Methodists in Oklahoma, speaking at Mission u and about a dozen churches. Two goals for the Manyas are more training for midwives and a solar project to counter hospital power failures. “I am serving my Lord through caring for my neighbor in need,” said Dr. Manya. His Advance support number is 15165Z.
