Description
Tinted lantern slide showing a group of Congo Balolo Mission missionaries outside an unidentified mission station, standing under a palm tree. Since the missionaries' coats have been tinted white, this image may be of the hospital at Baringa, which opened in 1932. A group of Congolese stand in the porch to the building, and one man stands next to his bicycle by the building wall. This slide comes from a collection generated by missionaries working for the Congo Balolo Mission, a mission begun in 1889 under the supervision of the East London Training Institute for Home and Foreign Missions that developed into the interdenominational evangelical mission Regions Beyond Missionary Union after 1900.
