Missionary Uncle

Missionary Uncle

Back in the sixties, many flemish families had their very own ‘missionary uncle’: bearded men who would regal many a living room, classroom or parish hall with tall stories from the dark continent. They told of life as a missionary, inspired as they were by the ideal of spreading the word of christ. Most of them worked in the congo.

Today, these spry octogenarians shuffle around monasteries and old age homes and are happy to look back one last time. They can draw from a seemingly endless supply of touching, funny and engaging anecdotes and thus the last surviving missionaries sketch the history of the missionary uncles in the congo.
