Black and white lantern slide showing Miss Annie Georgina Soper (1883-1979), founder of the Peruvian Inland Mission, on horseback in Peru. She wears a white pith helmet, skirt and shirt, and long boots. A male Peruvian helper stands to the side of the horse, and carries a cloth bundle over his shoulder and a hat in his hand. Annie Georgina Soper was a trained nurse who first went to Peru in 1916 to the Nurses' Training School in Lima. Accompanied by another nurse, Frances Rhoda Gould, she set off across the Andes to Moyobamba in 1922, where a hospital was set up. In 1930 (after a disagreement with a Free Church of Scotland missionary), she left Moyobamba in the hands of the Free Church of Scotland and set out for Lamas, where she set up a hospital and school. This slide comes from a collection created by the Peruvian Inland Mission, an evangelical mission started in 1930 by Miss Annie G Soper in northeast Peru, which was administered by the evangelical interdenominational mission, Regions Beyond Missionary Union from 1948.
