MINISTRIES WE SUPPORT MONTHLY:
RALPH & SHIRLEY HAGEMEIER, MISSIONARIES TO THE CONGO
When Ralph and Shirley Hagemeier first applied to become missionaries to Africa, in 1966, they felt it was God’s call on their lives. Now, more than four decades later their conviction to continue working in their adopted land remains as strong as ever. Ralph and Shirley are parents and in-laws to Mike and Melody, RMFC Pastors.
The Hagemeier’s were in Tanzania, East Africa, for 15 years, working with various ministries including a Bible School to help train new pastors. After coming home to the states, with their two daughters in college, they began to feel a new call to start a Bible School in Zaire. Ralph and Shirley bought 98 acres of land and built a compound that includes a Bible School, kindergarten, elementary and high school, there is a dispensary, and orphan children are weighed and given food supplies each week. They help to provide work, medical assistance, food and clothing to many of the country’s poorest residents. It is a lifestyle very different than most of us would consider embracing willingly. Even though Ralph and Shirley are at an age where most people are considering retirement, they have no plans to give up their ministry. For more information view this newspaper article.
Tiffany Dozier began attending RMFC in 2002. At that time she was a student at CSU Pueblo. In 2005, she moved to New York City to continue her education and eventually became a police officer. After seven years as a police officer, Tiffany left her job to follow God’s call to fight human trafficking in South Asia. Since 2012 she has worked to bring rescue and rehabilitation to victims and to see that perpetrators are held accountable for their actions. Over the past two years she has gotten to see God work in amazing ways to bring about rescue to over 500 people and is excited to see all that He will do in the years to come.
