The Mensingers served for 40 years, and Lois for 35. All three have been involved in leadership training in many different venues through the years, the last 15 of which found them serving together at Bata Bible Institute and Seminary in the Central African Republic.
Linda has had a strong ministry among OTN (Women of the Good News) women, teaching Bible, literacy, and community health.
Eddie’s ministry has been in training the top African theologians in the CAR church at the seminary.
Lois has taught Bible, community health and literacy, has served as a nurse, and has also helped many missionaries learn the Sango language.
